Being a life-giving spirit means our true SELF governs our emotional landscape.
Emotions are the experience of the energetic vibrations that emanate from our beliefs. They are the sensational, active expression of the creative power inherent in our state of being. Whether outwardly expressed or suppressed, emotions reveal what we believe is true, which our reality reflects in endless ways, expected and unexpected. These energetic vibrations shape the structure and substance of reality so that our emotional landscape determines reality’s landscape.
When our state of being is under the governance of a false self, we experience a myriad of emotional whirlwinds. Moments of peace and joy are continually hijacked with disharmonious emotions because the false self exists upon a framework of separation, so true Peace is impossible. The false self is upheld by a framework of erroneous beliefs. For example, the beliefs in helplessness, individualized wills (which is the genesis of fear), and false judgments of ourselves as something other than what God created us to be are ever-present instigators of turbulent emotions, which wreak havoc inwardly and outwardly. As it is within, so it is without.
Through the awareness of our true SELF, our emotional/feeling world begins to be governed by Truth, which is One with the Mighty I Am Presence of God. The true SELF is established upon absolute Truth that resonates in a perpetual state of equilibrium, manifesting changeless Divine Harmony and Peace. As we receive Truth from the Spirit of Truth, our beliefs transform in accordance with our true SELF. Beliefs such as we are powerful in oneness, only the Will of Divine Love exists, and we are the timeless perfection God created us to be, replace our prior beliefs. When we give our belief to the Truth received from the Spirit of Truth, our true SELF governs our state of being and Divine Love fills our emotional landscape, which we experience as peace, joy, contentment, abundance, generosity, gratitude, purity, invincibility, and freedom.
Again, who we believe we are, reality reflects back to us. The present moment is inherently perfect because Truth is ever-present. It is the energetic chaos of false belief stemming from the false self that defiles the present moment. The mind shifts when we no longer accept a false self and instead give our belief to the Self revealed in Truth. Our true SELF’s being creates ever-lasting abundance, peace, vitality and joy. Therefore, Peace (and the other divine attributes) is created through an emotional state of being peace, which shapes the outer reality according to our inner being.
As we awaken to Truth, we experience mixed emotional states as emotions arise according to our true SELF as well as emotions generated by the residual false self. During this metamorphic stage, the Spirit of Truth instructs us to stop looking outwardly, and using reflections of the false self to tell us who we are and what is true, and instead look into the inner sacred looking glass that reflects the true SELF. Through this conscious shift in attention, our emotions cease to be disrupted by disharmony in the outer reality and our mind is given the opportunity to embrace our true Reflection. As long as the outer reality, which reflects a false image, defines who we are and what is true, we stay trapped in the illusionary self’s emotional landscape and corresponding reality.
As we look through the eyes of Truth, we see the illusion for what it is. By looking beyond the illusion to our inherent Peace, our emotional balance returns to a state of equilibrium. We no longer fuel reality with discordant energy, and it transforms into harmonious reflections of our true SELF.
Every discordant feeling presents an opportunity to return our mind to Truth and release the illusion a little bit more. As our emotional world harmonizes to Truth, creation engages in its inherent regenerative properties, returning to its true state of perfection.
As Truth increasingly governs our emotional world, we are set free from the emotional chaos of the false self, leading our mind/body reality to green pastures of abundance and vitality, and the still waters of serenity and harmony, which ultimately creates a reality where there is ever-present Peace and Joy.
The Lord is my shepherd; I shall not want. He makes me to lie down in green pastures; He leads me beside the still waters. He restores my soul; He leads me in the paths of righteousness For His name’s sake. ~ Psalm 23:1-3
