Living Light

Stirring The Deep



As creators, we are the writers of our life’s story. Our programming language (ethereal pen) is our inner vision comprised of thought energy, which our mind projects upon the screen of reality, creating a living narrative.

Every moment has a backstory that tells how that moment came to be. Backstories wrap each present moment in a story of time that connect it to the past and future. They are the mechanism by which a timeless mind creates coherency in an illusionary world of time and space.

The past doesn’t exist but as a story within our mind, so the cause to our present moments isn’t a non-existent past, but the frequency of our thought energy (thoughts and the energetic structures they create). Our thought energy charges our reality with certain qualities (i.e., gratitude or complaining) and then our mind constructs a story of time reflecting those qualities connecting the past and future. Therefore, backstories are dynamically created moment to moment according to the present energy we are extending into reality. As a result, our life can change in a moment in desirable and undesirable ways. It’s also why when we energetically hold onto past grievances some things never seem to change.

When we are unaware of how we create, backstories hide our mind’s creative prowess and power. The past appears to hold the cause to our present experience, so that we don’t recognize it’s the present energy we are extending into reality that creatively effects reality. When the effect is mis-named as the cause, the true cause of how reality is created remains unknown. This misunderstanding of the true cause to the present moment entraps us in a world of suffering we unknowingly create, while blinding us to our ability to create a reality of peace and joy.

Our inner vision is a perceiving/receiving as well as a projective mechanism of the mind. According to our accepted source of truth, whether it is the outer appearance world or Truth’s Living Voice (Spirit of Truth), our inner vision is correspondingly darkened (asleep) or illuminated (awake). Depending on the source, our inner vision energetically projects darkness or Light through the mind, which creates our present moment and its supporting backstories.

When our inner eye is closed, the mind sleeps. Without the Light of Truth, the sleeping mind’s individualized judgments based on the outer reality (relative truth) stand in the place of Truth. False judgments are based on past interpretations of experiences, which become the personalized meaning we give to things, and our accepted truth. Because judgments are based on the past, the past appears to be the cause to our present, therefore hiding the true cause, thought energy. When our judgments are the substance of our thoughts, then our inner vision is full of darkness (lack of Truth).

Without the light of Truth, the only way the sleeping mind can create is according to its judgments. These judgments, full of corrupted and erroneous thoughts, project an energetic field of disharmony. As a result, the mind creates backstories which support disharmony, and we experience conflict, suffering, and harm.

When we turn to Truth’s Living Voice, the Spirit of Truth, as our source of Truth, our inner eye begins to open. As Truth illuminates our inner vision, divine thoughts replace false judgments. Our subjective judgments become irrelevant and nullified because the Truth is clearly seen and known.

As our mind becomes an open gate to the Divine Mind so that it receives divine, revelatory thought, backstories are created by the Divine Mind in oneness with our awakened individualized mind. As our reality is energized with divine qualities, the backstories reflect these qualities so that we experience peace, joy, and perfect provision.

Understanding how the narrative of our life is written allows our mind to consciously create according to the ever-present Truth and no longer according to past judgments. As our inner vision is illuminated with Truth, the backstories enfolding the present reflect the most desirable and unexpected outcomes, creating a landscape of miracles.

“The lamp of the body is the eye. Therefore, when your eye is good, your whole body (reality) also is full of light. But when your eye is bad, your body also is full of darkness.” ~ Luke 11:34

Contemplating the oneness of Truth while guided by the Voice of Truth produces the evolution or maturation of the soul, spirit and mind, so reality can begin to reflect Truth's immutable, divine attributes, which manifest the highest good for all. This blog reflects an ever-deepening understanding of the Truth a soul gains as its mind is renewed by Truth's pure Light.

  1. Greetings Rachel…..EL.. in your Name very significant.. check Hebrew also your biblical Rachel…. very profoundly strong biblically.., Yeshua meaning: Saviour. Best to avoid the nick name jesus which means son of zeus So much deception by those in Centuries past in the Roman Army Church with corrupted soiled minds those agents of Lucifer, swallowing those in positions of government deceiving the nations. Nothing has changed since this drop of poison.
    But all matter returns to matter( so what does it matter ! ) ref: Gospel of Mary
    Yahweh has the perfect plan in His mighty hand. Remain on track keeping your buoyancy in Him.

    The following may help with your….Back Stories Teaching….

    To be born again if you will is to LET GO Of The past, and to look without condemnation on the present. This is a ‘miracle of truth’ that enables you to see your brother without the past and to perceive him as born again. His errors are past and by perceiving him without them your are releasing him. Since his past is yours too, you share in his release. Let NO dark clouds of the past obscure you or him, for truth lies only in the present. Looking for truth where it is not is divisional. Your past was made in anger and if you use it to attack the present you will not see the freedom that the present holds. Judgement and condemnation are behind you, and unless you bring them with you, you will see that you are not free of them. Look lovingly with joy upon the present for it holds the only thing that is forever true.

  2. Divine truth reflects the eternal nature of its source, the LIVING PRESENCE of God. When the first drops of truth enter the mind, each contain the fullness of God’s eternal LIFE, which is the same as saying each drop contains the whole of truth. Truth is living and the life is the LIGHT by which Truth is known. And since the life of truth has its source in God, it is by truth’s light that God is known, for only truth’s life that can reveal God’s infinite whole to a finite, individualized mind.

    There is only ONE LIFE, which is the life of God inherent in truth. Truth is life without expression. It is the mind that gives expression to truth, for when truth illumines the conscious awareness of an individualized mind, it radiates life into experience so that its expression reflects JOY back to the life that created it.

    Prior to receiving the first drops of the liquid light of truth, the mind could not perceive it was in darkness, which is to say without awareness of life. Recall that we have said the mind created its own meaning for the concept of “life”, which appeared separate from the mind. The mind judged that only that which will die has life, for opposites are always required for a darkened mind to assess that which it believes to be true. Thus, life was considered finite and temporal, appearing for a moment, after which it transformed into death.

    Those things in the reality of darkness that could not die were judged to have never been alive, and therefore the mind believed that “life” must die or it is not life. Truth brings with it the mind’s first recognition of what life actually is: timeless, creative, ever-expanding and full of joy.

    Only life creates, and this because its source is God. Life is the very extension of God’s presence, and it is conveyed into the mind by truth. Because the mind is able to consciously contain truth (the LIFE OF GOD), it becomes one with this life and therefore able to share in God’s attributes, specifically the ability to be a perfect creator.

    Looking back we recall that the sleeping mind believes itself to be housed in a body, which it uses to create through the physical manipulation of the outer appearance world. Without the body, or the use of force, the sleeping mind does not believe it creates anything, but merely gives instructions to the body, which then creates as the mind wills. Life is believed to be that which empowers the body to serve the mind, much like electricity might power a mechanical object.

    To the mind life is a temporary power source that eventually drains down into death. Yet somehow it is able to replicate itself into newly created beings, giving the mind comfort that life is renewed despite inevitable death. Thus the sleeping mind believes the creative power of life is beyond itself, existing as miraculously created “biometric” energy that powers the “living things” of its outer appearance world for a short time.

    And here is found the separation that causes blindness. For a mind without the knowledge of life sleeps in darkness, which is the belief that life’s creative light exists “outside” of itself.

    • Recall that the label “darkened mind” is used to paint a picture of a mind without the conscious recognition that it creates the reality it experiences. The blindness of darkness is caused by the mind’s belief in time, which the mind experiences as a reality of pre-created outer appearances. As a result, the mind can not believe it creates anything because every appearance in time contains the story of its past creation. How, for example, could the mind ever comprehend it created what has seemingly already been created?

      The deception of time is upheld in the mind’s foundational belief that its reality is comprised of outer appearances, separated from each other by “space”. In a reality of separation, creation can only occur when seemingly separate things are brought together and combined into something new. Without the ability to “close the space” between separated things, the mind believes it has no affect on its world.

      Further, in order to navigate the space between separate things, the mind must also believe it is separate from that which it approaches, and therefore believes it is a body capable of movement through space. For the mind asleep in time’s darkness, its creative power is limited to that which the body can physically approach through any of its sensory perceptions such as sight, sound and touch.

      Yet the mind also recognizes that it is separate from the creative power of life because it realizes that all the body physically creates is without life. It perceives life’s creative power in its outer appearance world, even the power that creates and sustains its own body. Yet, because life creates apart from the body’s movement through time and space, the mind assumes life is a foreign creative power of unknown origin. In its reality of separation, life exists as separate “living things”, which appear for a time and then disappear. Consequently, life is believed to be a temporal power which functions to sustain the brief outer appearance of separate things which the body uses to create according to the mind’s judgment of good and bad.

    • Let us return to the nature of thought, that we may better understand its function in the mind. Consider that the body uses its senses to perceive the reality it inhabits. Since the body exists in the realm of outer appearances, its senses are designed to interpret the “truth” from these appearances. This is why it is said that the body’s source of truth can come only from the outer appearance world. Yet now we recognize something new in the way the mind “perceives”, which is to say recognizes that which it comprehends to be true.

      We have previously said that anything perceived through the bodily senses is brought into the mind where it is judged good or bad, desirable or undesirable and then reckoned to be true through the power of belief. The body can be seen as a sort of gate, by which information gleaned from the outer appearance world is brought into the mind, judged and given meaning. Before the light of truth enters the mind, all that is believed to be to be true flowed into it through the body’s sensory gateway. And never had the mind experienced perception except through bodily senses.

      When absolute truth enters the mind it does not come through the body’s sensory gate, but instead through a gate within the mind which is always present, yet unrecognized in darkness. For a mind accustomed to sorting through the body’s continual stream of sensory data in order to judge what it believes to be true and discard the rest, the sudden appearance of absolute truth in the mind has a profound impact, creating an experience many have labeled a “spiritual awakening”.

      The mind is intensely affected by the instant recognition that there now exists a source of truth that is not dependent on the body’s senses. Even more jarring is the mind’s recognition that it possesses “sight” that does not involve the body’s eyes, a vision capable of beholding truth’s inherent light. The newly recognized mechanism of sight has been labeled the “third eye”, but can be more correctly understood as REVELATORY THOUGHT.

      Prior to the advent of absolute truth, the individualized mind existed in the darkness of its own belief, created through the judgment of outer appearances. In darkness the mind is unaware of thought’s function, much like a body in a pitch black environment would be unaware that it had functioning eyes, and therefore no conception of the purpose its eyes might serve.

      It is a good analogy to consider revelatory thought as the EYE OF THE MIND, yet without the light of life inherent in absolute truth, thought is without true power. Instead the mind attempts to determine thought’s meaning in the only way it knows how, through the use of the body’s senses. The mind fashions thought as a form of “hearing” and this through the spoken language with which the body is most familiar.

      Thought is therefore interpreted as a mechanism for the mind to speak to its Self, with the same spoken words the body uses. Because the mind’s words are not “heard” by the body’s ears, the mind assumes its thought-based communication is contained within the private space of its own body, having no effect on its outside world. The mind simply believes that thoughts are “words without sound” and used for private interpretation.

      Just as the function of eyes could never be imagined in a reality without light, so too does the true nature, and revealing power of thought remain hidden while the mind sleeps in the darkened state of unawareness.

    • The function of mind is self-expression. Thought is the revelatory power that enlivens the perfect function of mind, ensuring that the self radiates truth. This is a significant understanding because it implies that thought is the conduit for truth’s light, and without light, the mind does not think truthfully, but only imagines it is thinking.

      When absolute truth flows into the mind, its thoughts are enlivened (given life) by truth’s inherent life. Therefore, thought’s revelatory power describes the manner by which thoughts are given life by the truth that that flows through them. Thought is alive because it conveys truth’s living light. And it is by the power of life flowing though the mind’s thought that the self is truthfully expressed. When a mind begins to truthfully express its self, it is said to be awakening.

      Thought is the mechanism by which truth circulates through the mind, filling it with the light of life, which is the creative power to express its self. Previously we have used the symbols “darkness” and “sleep” to describe a mind unaware of its creative power. We are not saying a sleeping mind does not create (it does), but rather that it is unaware that it actively creates the reality it experiences. This unawareness causes the mind to rationalize that all it experiences must be an effect of past cause. The sleeping mind ascribes all creative power to pre-existing appearances, believing all that is made was created by that which was made. We see therefore that the sleeping mind believes it stumbles through a darkened reality that seemingly creates itself.

      How can the mind accept and believe such an insane idea?

      To understand the answer we must more deeply explore the meanings behind the symbols of “reality” and “self”. It is always wise to consider the mind as an ever-growing state of conscious awareness. It is “awareness” that empowers the mind and enables its individualization, combining to personify its self expression. Thus we can wisely consider that self expression is the result of that which the mind is consciously aware.

      When we therefore say that the sleeping mind is not aware of its creative power, it can now be understood to mean that the mind has no conscious awareness of how the self creates expression, which is the same as saying the mind has no awareness of its self. To the mind, a self without expression does not exist. And yet, even in sleep, the mind is always aware that its self exists.

      It is for this reason that the sleeping mind dreams.

    • We have said that the mind sleeps in darkness so that it may be made ready to receive the light. Mind, of course, never sleeps, but is always, everywhere active because it is an ever expanding conscious awareness. However, until it is prepared to receive the absolute rule of truth’s living light, it is said to be in darkness because it is unaware of how truth’s light creates self-expression. Even so, the mind instinctively knows it exists as a self. However, without the light of absolute truth, the self is not expressed into conscious awareness and the mind is said to dream of what its self might be. The mind knows its is a self, yet nothing of its truthful self-expression. And here we see the root, from which grows the mind’s dream of reality.

      Recall that we have previously stated that absolute truth is KNOWN, rather than believed. We can now ask whether the mind believes it exists, or does it know it exists? It is clear that every “sleeping” mind knows of its own existence and can readily see, even in the deepest darkness, that this knowledge is higher than any belief it holds about its self. Therefore, every mind is able to declare “I AM” and know it to be true.

      Take a moment and consider the deeper meaning. We have stated that what the mind BELIEVES TO BE TRUE is identified with the label “relative truth”, which can be considered that which is true relative to the individualized mind that believes it. Absolute truth is not believed, but is known to be true because divine truth transcends belief. It is for this reason that divine truth is absolute, for it is not interpreted or judged by the mind, but rather perceived in oneness of meaning. This can be readily understood in the mind’s declaration of “I AM”, for it has absolute meaning for every individualized mind that declares it.

      Now look carefully, every mind, regardless of its darkness or seeming corruption of individualized expression, is ONE WITH ABSOLUTE TRUTH because it knows it exists and truthfully declares “I AM”. It is here, in the knowledge of I AM, that every mind is connected to the living light of divine truth. And it is through this GATE to the divine that all self-expression flows into the mind’s conscious awareness, creating the reality in which it exists.

      Yet, how can this be? If all minds have a gate that creates union with the living light of absolute truth, how is it that a mind exists in darkness, unaware of the light? Would not the light of divine truth appear as a blazing sun in the mind’s dream of outer darkness? How can it be that a mind exposed to that which it knows to be true could ever turn away to follow after those things it merely judges to be true?

    • Consider the sleeping mind like a dormant seed, yet without the boundary of form. The seed-state of the mind can then be imagined as the center of an infinitely expanding lightless sphere in the infinite blackness of outer space. The mind has no awareness of its boundless realm because darkness presses against it on all sides. The mind is therefore confined because the darkness prevents awareness of anything beyond its Self. In this “outer darkness” self-expression is impossible because all that can be revealed in ever-present darkness is more darkness.

      How, then, does the sleeping mind know it exists? For if the mind is unable to express it Self into awareness, how does it KNOW it is a living Self? You can consider this question from the perspective of the physical, dormant seed. Being without the ability to express itself, how is the sleeping seed any different from that which is without life? How does life remain within the seed, yet without expression? And if life is without expression, can the seed not rightfully be considered “without life”, or dead? And if dead, how then can life come?

      To answer these questions let us return to the timeless realm of mind, and the RULE of absolute truth. We recall that absolute or so called divine truth, is ever present, immutable and without opposition. In truth there can be only life or death, for what is living can not be dead and what is dead can not be living. Whether life or death, absolute truth declares only one can be, and this it must be forever. Thus, in the outer darkness of the sleeping mind, in the complete unawareness of its Self, it must come to KNOW the truth that it lives, else it would be lost forever in the unawareness of its existence.

      Let us recall that divine truth is ALIVE, which is to say that there is LIFE within it. When we speak of “life in truth”, we mean the mind’s timeless (eternal) awareness of its ever-increasing self-expression. True life ALWAYS IS, yet it continually expands to create an ever more perfect expression of its Self, growing always toward a perfection known to exist beyond its current state of perfection. This PERFECTION BEYOND PERFECTION IS TRUTH’S LIGHT, which is forever beyond truth’s current expression, yet endlessly becoming its current expression. We can better understand eternal life as the timeless experience of truth becoming an ever more beautiful reflection of that which it already is.

      And it is the truth’s life that is its light, because it forever reflects the source of its ever-increasing perfection, God.

      • These are all descriptions of the mind. What ever the mind is doing, it is only being observed. There is no life coming forth from the speaker.

  3. life flows THROUGH the speaker. but in the bible, the SPEAKER is called the TEMPLE. each person lives within his temple. and when a person dies, the spirit leaves the temple.

    the heart is what we LIVE IN, and the mind is how we see the heart in which we leave. THE WHOLE WORLD shows the HEART(flowing through the ETERNAL HEART and the SPEAKER(TEMPLE).

    i am the SOURCE of LIFe, AND the speaker…
    (NOTE: each person is an opposing force within ourselves). to fight against another(in mind), is to fight against SELF..
    to see spirit in all things, is the way to bring out all souls that is withing the spirit t hat flows through our t emple)…

    a church is not a building, a church is a means of sharing the same ideas(eternal ideas(spirit)).

    a temple is what we call our individual body..

  4. When you accept Jesus Christ, as your Savior He will then begin to illuminate to you that the opposing force is satan, and the demonic realm. The Bible does not say that the speaker is called the Temple. The speaker is the spirit. Your heart and your mind must be Born Again, and regenerated unto life through Jesus Christ and through the repentance of your sin. Then you will no longer be an opposing force within yourself. And your fight will be against evil, against sin, and against the devil
    Reach out and grab the hand of Jesus Christ so that he can reveal the source of evil and cleanse you from it. This will be your day of salvation.
