The End of Suffering

The End of Suffering

 

“I see suffering all around me. How can I end suffering for all as it isn’t even real?”

The way to all truth is through the “supra-conscious mind”, the over-mind that governs all reality. Our minds are closed to the supra-consciousness because we (humans) have relied on our own self-generated consciousness, which is a false consciousness created in the belief that we are separate from all living things. This self-conscious mind is a “closed (finite) system” that functions in darkness (separation from the truth of the supra-mind, which is infinite).

The self-created consciousness forms its own truths based on what it perceives via its physical senses. Thus it believes it lives in a material or finite reality because the senses can only discern the material and finite. The soul, which is eternal, is then subjected to finite limitations which rub against it and create suffering, pain and abrasion of all soul perceptions. The soul experiences “pain” and manifests this pain outwardly as suffering into its reality which is created by its mind. When anyone perceives the suffering of others, without consciously knowing they absorb this potential into their own self-created consciousness. They believe suffering to be true and it becomes part of their reality. Thus suffering and the finite reality of death spread throughout humanity via physically perceiving the manifested reality of others.

How then is this closed system of suffering penetrated, such that light (Truth) can be passed on to others? By Trust in the workings of divine love.

Trust is the open door to the supra-conscious mind which allows the soul to operate in the “infinite system” in which it was created to exist. This supra-conscious mind governs all freewill creatures and is framed with eternal structures of love, peace, joy, harmony, growth and restitution (gathering of all things into oneness and perfection). It is fundamentally different from the framework of the self-generated consciousness and its resulting mind of darkness and selfishness. It is not possible for the self-conscious mind to trust in the thoughts and ideas of the supra-conscious mind, even if it wills to do so.

Such a darkened mind can not comprehend the ways of light and is therefore unable to construct thoughts of life. However, as one travels inwardly into the abyss of the transition space between these two consciousnesses (the real and the unreal), it is here that the door to the supra-conscious is found. This infinitely small door is imperceptible without the guidance of the Spirit of Truth, yet has always connected the self-created mind to the life of the supra-mind of oneness. If the traveller remains in this place of transition and continues to knock on the door once having perceived it, and having come to understand that the Father lives behind it, it is eventually discovered that the door was always open, but appeared at first non-existent and then closed, and then as the soul perceptions of the traveller are refined, it appears as it is in truth: open.

Perceiving this open door is the birth of Christ within the soul and with it the supra-natural ability to Trust in the growing reality of Truth and the infinite space of the living realm of oneness. Slowly this Trust is able to convey the concepts of life into the self-created mind and conquer all thoughts and ideas that manifest expressions of suffering and separation from joy.

As the “Life” pours into the self-consciousness through the expanding doorway of the supra-conscious mind, the self-created mind is consumed by Life. And it begins to operate in accordance with the supra-mind’s purposes, creating a reality that will be able to relay life to the dead (unaware of Truth) through the reality of their physical senses. What is discovered behind the door deep within by the few is poured out into reality, that all may perceive the Truth of the supra-conscious mind via external perception. Thus, Life spreads to all humankind.

As Life consumes the self-created consciousness of those once unaware (dead), they are increasingly able to contain the supra-conscious mind’s thoughts of divine love (Life) and to trust in these thoughts as good, real and possible. For they first must see the light of divine love (Christ) manifested by others via their physical senses and then proclaim it good via their soul perceptions. As this happens, suffering slowly dissolves from their reality through their increasing Trust in the life of divine love.

So it is that through the one door all are made alive. Through the few who found the open gate of the supra-conscious mind of perfection, love and endless joy, all may be made free and partakers of the oneness of divine love’s river of life.

 

“Because narrow is the gate and difficult is the way which leads to life, and there are few who find it. ~ Matthew 7:14

But now Christ is risen from the dead, and has become the firstfruits of those who have fallen asleep. For since by man came death, by Man also came the resurrection of the dead. For as in Adam all die, even so in Christ all shall be made alive. ~ 1 Corinthians 15:20-22

“And God will wipe away every tear from their eyes; there shall be no more death, nor sorrow, nor crying. There shall be no more pain, for the former things have passed away.” ~ Revelation 21:4

Transcendent Creativity

Transcendent Creativity

 

As the soul transcends into a sublime oneness, its expressed creativity takes on a new energetic landscape.

Conduit of Creativity

In complete oneness, the soul functions as the conduit for the divine will to manifest the Creator’s divine attributes in creation. In this unity, the soul’s desires and the Creator’s will flow as one; as the Creator works through the soul’s desires. Thus, the soul’s role is to desire, and the Creator’s role is to do.

“If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.  

John 15:7

Desire is the one soul element that can be purified while the soul is still a part of its false-self. (For example, the soul can desire to perfectly love though it doesn’t have the ability to do so in its current state of consciousness.) Desire resides beyond the soul and yet a part of it because it is a pre-creative state. Thus, along the soul’s journey through the wilderness, it’s the desires of the soul that are purified, which prepare the way for the divine-self. Because desires pave the way for what is created, it is also the aspect of soul where its awakening begins. (The Portal of Divine Desire)

When the soul’s desire comes into alignment with the Creator’s will, then the creative words of the soul begin to flow from the divine consciousness. Through these words the divine potentials of immortal harmony are manifested in creation; beginning with actualization of the divine-self and then abundant life created through that self. The soul asks and speaks according to its desire and the Creator works his will to fulfill the desire of the soul. As the desires of the soul grow more beautiful, so does the soul’s reality.

Because it’s the Creator’s role “to do”, after the soul offers up its deepest desires it enters into its most potently creative state, which is a profound rest that is cradled by living faith, divine trust, and belief.

Be anxious for nothing, but in everything by prayer and supplication, with thanksgiving, let your requests be made known to God; 

Philippians 4:6 

In this state, the soul completely relinquishes the fulfillment of its desires to the Creator’s workmanship. This letting go is one of the most important aspects of the soul’s desire and its corresponding request. It’s an emotional atmosphere where the energetic powers of faith, trust and belief are potent and active. In this rest, these three creative qualities (faith, trust and belief) become heightened so that the energetic level of the soul finds a connection to the energy of divine creativity. This synergy enables the flow of the divine will through the soul and into its reality. The soul isn’t self-directing the means, manner, timing, and the specific outcomes along the way as it did in the self-determined consciousness, but instead it has become an outlet through which the divine will of divine love is accomplished. Meanwhile, the soul resides in the spontaneous flow of the present moment synched to the inner compass of the Spirit.

Requests in Grace

Transcendent or divine creativity requires a soul state of grace that is void of all retribution. As grace is a state of heart, so is retribution. One desires absolute healing and the other desires suffering.

Because the will of the Creator is abundant life for all, which is accomplished by grace flowing through the soul, in divine creativity the soul desires to give grace (alleviating all suffering) to all, always and in all circumstances. This desired intention of the soul enables  divine grace to flow into creation, which in turns enables any particular expression of divine creativity. Where the words of life from the Spirit cleanse and purify the soul (manifesting the Christ spirit within), the grace given between individual souls enables them to walk in that life. (Symbolized in Jesus washing the disciples feet.)

As I mentioned in previous posts, grace is the power in divine love that enables the soul to walk according to its divine longings. When the soul offers grace to another, then it’s received into its own soul. Through this dynamic, grace and love spread throughout creation and create the foundation for every creative act. Thus, the sincere desire of the soul entails this grace being a part of every circumstance, every heart, and every part of creation.

Requests in Retribution

When the soul desires divine grace, it desires nothing of retribution; which comes in many forms. If a soul desires retribution for another’s error (sin), it not only keeps grace from another’s life, but from its own. Thus, the divine creative energy can’t flow through this soul because the soul is counter to it. Thus, the Spirit of Truth instills truth in the soul that manifests a desire to give unconditional love.

“For with what judgment you judge, you will be judged; and with the measure you use, it will be measured back to you.

Matthew 7:2

Part of the truth that the soul receives from the Spirit that negates retribution is the awareness of the soul’s current condition. When the soul sees that it is all that it judges; it ceases to judge and instead has mercy. One common area where retribution resides is in the dynamic of a bully and a victim; a dynamic that comes in many shapes and forms. As all begins with thoughts, thinking self-deprecating thoughts and thinking deprecating thoughts of another creates “bullying”. Receiving these thoughts as truth from the self or another creates “being the victim”. The false-self is full of both. However, there is a deeper dynamic occuring: a victim is an inner bully, and a bully is an inner victim. And so it is with much of this reflective reality.

As long as the soul believes it is only one or the other, then an active contrary spirit resides hidden within the soul. Without the revealing of both within the soul, one stays active, which prohibits divine creativity. As the soul realizes it is both and “confesses and forsakes” both, it negates the separatist mentality that created a justified retribution. What is revealed can be healed. What is hidden festers.

And forgive us our debts, As we forgive our debtors.

Matthew 6:12

Once all is revealed, then the soul desires grace for all, and transcendent creativity can flow. These counterpart dynamics are why the Spirit creates a humble atmosphere in a seeking soul. In humility, the soul is willing and able to see itself in the dynamics of its life – and learn. And in learning, its desires shift to be in accordance with the divine will.

The transformative path of the soul removes all retribution from the soul so that divine grace can flow and cover all. Without the soul “washing the feet” of those around it in grace, then grace would be withheld from creation. We are abundantly covered in grace from within, and as we desire to give it, we find that something beautiful and new begins to be created upon the landscape of the earth.

“If I then, your Lord and Teacher, have washed your feet, you also ought to wash one another’s feet.

John 13:14

Divine Love Energy

Divine Love Energy

 

Present-mindedness is the space and time dimension where the divine love energy of the Creator encounters the soul.

This divine energy awakens (resurrects) us out of the dream-state of our self-determined consciousness and into the realm of divinity of the divine consciousness. In present-mindedness, we are awake in the real of our divine self. In the past-future mindset, we are asleep in the unreal of our false self.

Source of Divine Energy

The source of divine energy is the exchange of a pure, sincere and mature love between our soul and our Creator. In this exchange, divine love begins to vibrate in our soul creating an ethereal divine energy that resides in our sacred inner chamber; the pre-creative space of our soul.

This divine energy manifests as a substantive energy in creation through the workings of our divine emotional energy, when this love is exchanged between two created souls. For this exchange to occur both souls first possess the divine love connection to the Creator, and then give it to one another.

To form a divine love with our Creator, we must intimately know him in spirit and truth, as he is and not according to images. If our love is according to an image, then there is no true love exchange. He is beyond creation, thus beyond all images. Thus, to know him, we seek him in the realm of the spirit that transcends this creation. As we seek him, through many soul interchanges we come to know him through a multitude of conceptual frameworks containing divine love and absolute truth. We come to perceive his magnificent individuality in an intimacy in which an exchange of divine love manifests. We come to love him with all our heart, soul, mind and strength of which our lives reflect in possessing the beatitudes like purity of heart, gentleness, humility, mercy and a hunger and thirst for righteousness (divine love).

When this love exchange is our root, then divine energy is our root. Being our root, this energy progressively pervades every aspect of our soul and our reflection until it fills all. This energy contains the strength, stability, and steadfast nature of a magnificent ancient tree. If you stand with your hands on a tree and feel its strength, this is a taste of the fortitude and energetic nature of this love in a soul. There is no other force more powerful and yet more tender. It contains the sovereignty of God, for it is his energy.

Divine Energy Flowing into Creation

As we grow in awareness of this divine love, we begin to desire to love all, not with a self-generated love, but with a divine love, which encompasses the divine attributes of God. Because God loves all, in this love we love all as well. Possessing the increasing intention to divinely love all is evidence that we are growing in sincerity in divine love.

Tri-Fold Love Exchange

Once we desire to give this energetic love to all, and there is another whom we can exchange this love with in creation, we begin to receive it into our expressive soul and reality. Without this tri-fold dynamic, of the Creator’s love, our love and another soul’s love in the present moment, we can’t receive the divine love energy into our experiential reality. It remains in the pre-creative place in our soul. In order for it manifest in this creation, thus our bodies (physical and spiritual) and reality, it needs to be exchanged between two souls in creation, who are both connected to the Creator in spirit, truth and love.

Jesus Christ possessed this divine love with the Father, but there was no one to exchange it with in creation, thus this love couldn’t amalgamate into this realm. But this wasn’t his purpose at that point in time. He came to establish the first part of the equation; the human soul’s divine love connection to our Creator, thus the open door to divinity into this love. The second part of the equation is the working of the Spirit of Truth to prepare souls to receive this divine love and exchange it among themselves thus birthing this love, which is the essence of Christ, into creation. At the fulfillment of the times, when the Spirit of God penetrates the human soul to govern it, it enters in through the divine love exchange between souls, for he is love. Souls who engage this dynamic are ones who have been sown together in truth and spirit as one by the Spirit of God, so that the divine love can endlessly and eternally flow between them. Once the divine love energy flows in and through them, they become life-giving spirits through which divine love can flow into creation. (1 Corinthians 15)

When we exchange this divine love energy with another, it is an energy that never ceases to flow; it’s rooted, grounded, and unwavering. It this consistency, it begins to create immortal harmony. Our intentions of divine love unite with the workings of the Spirit of God in a oneness in our soul, and they manifest layer upon layer supportive present moments that are full of living divine particles as well as synchronized waves of potentials to create continual growth, expansion and harmony in our soul’s reflective reality.

As we exchange this love with another, it heals and regenerates us as well as the other in our souls, minds and bodies; for it’s the life force of immortality, harmony, eternal growth, and life. Interestingly, it’s when we exchange this love with another that we heal and regenerate because in giving it to another in creation, this love manifests in creation therefore in ourselves. Thus, our healing that leads to regeneration comes through loving others with the love flowing from our Creator.

Our experiential reality is a reflection of our soul state. We are victims or benefactors of ourselves. In our regeneration, we who caused so much pain and heartache to ourselves and to others become founts of healing. It’s the most beautiful and perfect reconciliation and justice of all entities. Divine reconciliation and justice entails every soul, especially the most hurtful, coming into a perfect love, and loving for eternity.

Healing unto Regeneration

Our soul, mind and body all function as one unit. Thus, healing that leads to regeneration (resurrection) comes from the soul outward. It comes from not only the higher vibration in our soul created by divine energy, but also the choices through the awareness those higher vibrations create. These choices for high vibration manifestations in our reality versus low ones support the process of healing leading to regeneration.

Supportive High Vibration Elements

Here are some examples of the supportive elements of creation that when we give to and receive from increase our vibration:

  • Nature
  • Ministering spirits of animals
  • Precious gems
  • Essential oils
  • Sunlight
  • Plant-based diet
  • Natural/plant-based products (cleaning, grooming, etc)
  • Balance in physical movement
  • Caring emotional environments/relationships (home, work, friendships, family, etc)
  • Balanced lifestyle
  • Words of life spoken to the soul
  • Caring affections of others and to others
  • Fostering harmony with nature and creation
  • Media of a high emotional vibration
  • Sensory influences of certain types of light, smells, colors, music and touch
  • Statements reflecting divine truth and love
  • Visualizations incorporating divine attributes
  • Prayer (conversational, listening, meditative, intercessory)
  • Meditation
  • Quality of thought
  • Gratitude (i.e. divine gratitude)
  • Trust, faith
  • Intentions to divinely love
  • Giving honor and care for all of creation
  • Present-mindedness
  • Rest in movement

All these elements impact our overall vibration, thus our soul state and our wellbeing. A soul increasing in the awareness of divine love will begin to transition into a life that reflects elements like these according to its individuality.

As the divine energy from our Creator enters our soul and is exchanged with others, along with the supportive higher vibrations of creation, our soul begins its regeneration. Bringing this energy into creation begins to free all of creation, which has been kept in bondage by the low vibration of the mortal human soul. (Romans 8:18-21)

Unearthing Our Shadow Side

Old woman young girl

Unearthing Our Shadow Side

 

A mind connected to the light; perceives the light. Until we connect, all we see are illusions in the dark.

The view into our soul from the inner chamber isn’t all pleasantries. But as we align to the perspective of truth, all we see, including our shadow side (false fabricated self) is encapsulated in divine love.

From the inner chamber, we begin to see ourselves raw and real. As our awareness increases so does our vision of our current soul state. As an observer of our own soul, we witness the depths of our struggles, afflictions, depravities, brokenness, frailties and illusions of our soul. These can throw us into states of sadness, frustrations, and even hopelessness. However, as we continue to seek to expand in the awareness of truth and divine love, we begin to realize that they are serving a purpose; to prepare us to receive and give divine love.

As we move toward the light, we begin to face these aspects of ourselves that we’ve spent years running and hiding from. All that we’ve held in our soul is exposed. In the darkness of unawareness, these traits remain hidden or sketchily seen, though their pain can be intensely experienced. Thus, we go through life creating disharmonious ripple effects and clueless as to why. Thus, to see is a blessing, though it may not feel like it initially … or even for awhile.

What do we do when these adverse and painful reflections are exposed? The multifaceted qualities of co-dependency, damaging control, fear, criticalness, self-pity, victimization, self-doubt, ego, pride, greed, lust, selfishness, guilt, shame, degraded self-value, and so on?

We can either view our shadow side with despondency and hopelessness or as a means to grow in the awareness of divine love. The latter builds the constructs of truth that prepares us for the inflow of the divine consciousness.

We see these attributes for what they are because we are seeing their contrast; what our soul expression would be in divine love. We see what we see for our instruction; for our soul’s sake, others and as a part of our Creator’s workmanship in us. As we seek what we are to learn from these challenging traits, we grow in the awareness of truth and divine love. In time, we learn that everything in our lives is serving our highest good as we surrender from our rebellion.

Acknowledgment, Letting Go, and Building Truth

When we see the attributes of our shadow side from a perspective of growth, we acknowledge, let go, and enable truth to expand into our awareness.

  1. Acknowledgement. To receive new constructs of divine love, we first acknowledge and confess the ones not of divine love. This requires honesty and transparency with our inner and outer reflections. Blame, complaining, denial, and suppression, all block the learning that is purposed in these imperfections. We each have what we have to learn what we need to about divine love.
  1. Letting Go. Once we acknowledge the attribute, we desire to let it go. To utterly and completely forsake it. Much of our expanding awareness is a process of letting go. This level of letting go is an onion peeling process. We have a trait because it helped us in some way. Our anger, control, pride, withdrawal, or denial served to protect us in our youth when we didn’t know what else to do with what was handed to us. We are challenged as we mature to let go of our childish ways and embrace the ways of divine love. This doesn’t mean instant change by any means. It means a desire to sincerely let go of this trait that blocks divine love; because this desire to let go opens the pathways for truth to start building in its place. So the questions arise: Do we truly desire to let go of this attribute? Or does it feel empowering at times? Does it help us “survive”? Does fear keep us holding onto it? Over time as our awareness expands to the nature of divine love, we gain a sincere desire to want to let go of all that hinders this love.
  1. Building Truth: When we acknowledge and desire to let go, we are enabling the Spirit of Truth to mercifully build truth within our soul; the truth about the nature of divine love. Over time, bit by bit, as we embrace the truth instead of the lie, the footholds of these counter mindsets start to loosen. The more thoughts and beliefs we have supporting the lies, the more blinding the lies. The more thoughts and beliefs we have around the truth, the more lucid the truth. So we seek to cultivate truth and not the lie.

He who covers his sins will not prosper, but whoever confesses and forsakes them will have mercy. Proverbs 28:13

Deliverance

What follows from this process is very individual and purposeful.

After we’ve gone through this process, these challenging attributes often continue to linger.  To alter these deeply seeded habitual perspectives and responses is the work of the Spirit of Truth within us. We are our Creator’s workmanship. Often these traits linger, because they assist in the building of the truth. They keep us seeking, asking, praying, and going deeper, instead of lounging in the complacency of ignorance. Therefore, above all we are called to trust in his workmanship in us and not our own or what we think should be happening.

A particular “weakness” facilitates a deeper trust in our Source and Center. It empowers us to put our pride aside and possess a sincere humility. It teaches us the faithfulness of divine love in the midst of unfaithfulness. Weaknesses serve our growing awareness. There are many purposes to our lingering imperfections.

Over time as we expand our awareness, the weakness may be no longer needed, thus it’s removed. Regardless of the outcome, our purpose is to expand our awareness. Thus whatever we face is there for our instruction. When we focus on this purpose, we are focused on the light and we grow. If we succumb to self-pity or blame, we are focused on the dark and that stifles our heightening awareness. Our imperfections serve to teach us.

We are learning what a soul governed by a self-directed will, versus a divine all-knowing will manifests. When we face our dark shadows, we begin to see the illusions we constructed. With a self-directed consciousness we make constant erroneous judgments. These create a reality of illusions, which we translate into our truth, our reality, our life. Our harsh judgments about our imperfections make it a thousand times harder. When we look from the perspective that all is for our growth and we aren’t meant to be perfect, then our judgments lessen. Our judgments feed our fear and our fear our judgments. As the fear dissipates in the awareness of a divine love, our imperfections, struggles, hardships, and afflictions begin to serve us according to their intended purpose.

The Spirit of Truth is always present to teach us through everything we face. As we open our ears as a willing student to learn from whatever we may encounter in or outside of ourselves, for one is the reflection of the other, we become prepared for a oneness with our Creator, which is our deliverance and eternal rest. Only our Creator knows when our schooling is complete. As long as we are in our school uniforms, the self-directed consciousness, we are to learn, and our imperfections are part of the curriculum.

As we’re drawn toward the light, our illusions fade and we see all is working for our highest good.

Soul Gyrations

Soul Gyrations of

Entering into a New Reality

space

The attribute of divine love is a great revealer, healer, and liberator at work within our soul. It moves into our soul through the workings of the Holy Spirit, who reveals this love to us, and through the instructions of the Spirit of Truth, who teaches us the spiritual laws that express this love.

As this love takes up residence in our souls, it reveals the will of our heavenly Father in ways that we couldn’t normally perceive, because clarity of his will is found in the workings of divine love. So, when we perceive a situation or relationship from this attribute’s perspective we move closer to what the will of God is for us, which is the perfect will for us, in those circumstances or relations. Through this awareness, we start to deepen not only in our understanding of his will for our individual lives, but also for humankind and all of creation.

In this understanding and work of the spirit, our lives start to conform to our Father’s “image” by partaking of his substance. In this realignment, our healing commences that regenerates our soul from one encased in the attributes of lack to one flowing in abundance. It’s all part of our individuality forming through this mortal experience.

Our Father’s will is expressed to us through spiritual laws pertaining to our created reality. These “laws” define for us the inner workings and various aspects of life until eventually we understand all our experiences in relation to these truths, thus the attribute of divine love. These spiritual laws reflect not only this love, but also many of the attributes of our Father that are incorporated into his love; beauty, harmony, goodness, sincerity, honor, righteousness, perfection, grace, mercy, forgiveness, purity, holiness, etc.

When we start to think and act in harmony with these laws, we not only learn more about our Father’s true nature, but also we start to partake of his substance, thus becoming a child, who reflects his likeness. Laws pertain to cause and effect, and the cause and effect relationship is a core aspect of our experiences. Therefore, as the spiritual laws are revealed, the relationships between the causes and effects occurring in our lives become more self-evident. This awareness is what creates a ripple effect of transformative growth in our souls and in our choices leading to a rejuvenated and liberated life; a life of his reflection.

However, it’s not all bliss at this point of our individualization formation. Though we know of his love and our spirit is transforming toward his likeness, during the process, we experience temporary upheavals in our souls. Sometimes they are quite cataclysmic as our temporal natures sown in perceived separation are replaced with everlasting ones sown in divine love. It’s much like the pains of childbearing and when they are particularly intense, childbirth, as we become souls born of our Father’s nature.

These disruptions come as the spirit of love and truth shines as a light in our soul, like a lamp on a dimmer switch illuminating a dark room. Little by little, it exposes everything in our soul and in our lives, and it leaves nothing hidden from its gentle yet targeted rays. In its illumination what we “see” within ourselves may lead to eye-opening and sometimes heartbreaking awareness as our fallen nature becomes apparent. At times during this process, it feels as if our life is being turned upside down from the inside out as everything that isn’t harmonious with his nature is shaken out; inclinations and natures of judgments, fears, worthlessness, pride, greed, hypocrisy, self-pity, useless cares, vanities, etc.; everything based on lies. And at these times, we realize we are totally dependent upon his work in us and not our own efforts, which he faithfully accomplishes. Though it may hurt a little or a lot, through these deep soul gyrations we are freed in ways we never knew we were bound as the truth takes up residence where the lies once dwelled.

After a series of these disruptions, we realize we are moving into a new reality; one founded on an abundance of divine love and no longer on separation and lack. These seasons bring a sprout of growth and we witness that he is making all things beautiful in time. And these intensities, which are leading to transformation, are part of the regeneration process. Also, we recognize that we are being transitioned by his spirit from a child coming out of a void caused by a perceived separation from our Father’s love to one who is springing forth from his love. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done. The kingdom comes within you.

Our Father’s will for our individual lives and humankind is beyond what we have desired of ourselves. It’s far more beautiful, bountiful and blissful, for in his will is our ultimate peace and freedom.

Establishing our soul to be in harmony with his soul is a work that our Father does with extreme care. It isn’t instant or done in haste. It’s true, real and everlasting. It’s the work of a diligent Creator and his carpenter making everything beautiful; every motive, desire, inclination, thought, and every expression that follows. As we push into his love, desiring it to consume every breath, he refashions our individuality in order to create a true and everlasting oneness with Him. This experience for us is one of a total transformation in our soul because no area is left untouched by his attentive spirit. Thus, it’s our ultimate freedom. In his will that is expressed through his truths of love we are totally free.

This “freeing” of our free-will is the irony of this journey. Left to our own understandings and ways, which we think is our freedom, we create a twisted personality, thus choices and lives that imprison us. In his will, we are individualized souls who find immense freedom in all our expressions and all our ways. And what we are, we give to the world.

I’m ready to be in this place as I know you are, but until then may we encourage one another in our personal expeditions of becoming who we uniquely are as children being wonderfully made by our perfect heavenly Parent.

Healing Perspectives

Healing Perspectives

space

Focus on YOUR development, and love others. 

NOT neglect to love, and focus on others’ development.

I’m learning to embrace the first line and thus let go of the second, as I understand the depth and healing power that the first contains.

When I use to not agree with someone’s sense of morality, lifestyle choices, responses to others, or whatever area I may see life differently, out of fear I would feel some sort of obligation to let them know (spoken or not) to help fix, change, or influence them according to what I learned to be right and true. Unfortunately, this concern with others’ progress in their personal development caused me to respond and act in ways that came across as disapproving, critical, prying, and unloving. Often I made the situation worse. It hurt, I couldn’t understand why?

Our heavenly Father taught me a different perspective and focus that is far superior. Instead of being concerned with others’ development and trying to alter it through “correction” of my disapproval, I now know it isn’t my “disapproval” that is needed (spoken, and especially unspoken for people sense our “spirit” above all else in a situation), but my love. And not just my natural love, but a love beyond myself yet flowing through myself, divine love, for it holds a wisdom natural love doesn’t contain. Thus, I needed to focus on my development of this love and simply love them. It isn’t just how we respond to others but the spirit behind it; be it fear or love, that makes the difference.

Ironically, the people causing the most pain and harm are the ones who need the love the most. But usually those are the ones who receive it the least. So by unintentionally “withholding” our love by focusing on the wrong thing, we are creating more harm than good. When people are harming themselves and/or others, whatever guidance they need outwardly is far more effective when it comes from a spirit of love, for it’s love that is lacking and is causing the “issues/problems” in the first place.

For example, when teenagers are “unruly”, we try to correct them in doing what is right. When we neglect to truly love them in the process, they feel judged, which feels like rejection, therefore, they feel more pain on top of the pain they already felt. Only love heals, thus all we do is to be done in and with love, which comes from a place of love, not fear.

In this, I see the power of acting from a place of understanding, compassion, and healing when addressing another instead of “disapproving” and “correcting,” which to the recipient can feel like judgment and rejection. We all need more compassion given and received in our lives, for this care speaks love to our souls, the very love we need to become better, and heal as we need to.

We have never walked in another shoes; it is impossible because it would require living their exact lives from their perspective to fully understand where they are coming from and how they are struggling. But how grateful I now am for all the brushes with various “wayward ways” I’ve had throughout my life, because it gives me a greater ability to give true compassion. But even having gone through similar situations, I’ve never faced exactly what someone else has, thus there is no room for my judgments. It simply doesn’t help. Therefore to criticize another’s response or choice isn’t helpful, but only desiring to help them from a compassionate sincere heart.

Love heals. We all have had much hurt and pain in our lives. So in our desire “to help”, it’s love that is needed for every situation. It isn’t “letting someone get away with something” … they suffer the consequences enough. It’s creating an environment of love and help, allowing someone the room to grow and learn, which is what they need.

Regardless of any situation, love, care, and sincerity for another’s wellbeing are what’s helpful and beneficial to all. Our heavenly Father counsels me on how to see and think in alignment to this love. Then his love through grace helps me me to walk in it. Divine love guides us in ways far beyond what we are able to do on our own for it is a much higher superior love as it knows the depths of the souls of all mankind. Thus he shapes our love in a way beyond anything we could accomplish on our own because he knows what we do not. He can “see” what we cannot.

This intimate instruction is essential for our soul development and to grow in his “kingdom”, where divine love reigns and governs all. It’s the real. Only God’s love is truly real, for it is everlasting. All else will fade away. Thus, as we come into harmony with this love in our soul we embrace what is truly real and everlasting.

 Be to others as I am to you.

Above is another instruction of our heavenly Father to me. How does he come to me? Gentle, tender, patient, and always ready to help. He is never condemning, guilt producing, or rejecting, even in the subtleties that we have in such intimacy. There is no fear in his expression of love to me. His love is always waiting for me to embrace it, never forcing itself upon me. This is how I am to be with others. Never forcing my will or what I think they should do, but realize they have their journey and learning to do, and my role is to speak words of life that energize them on this journey. As our heavenly Father is with me, so I’m to be patient as they learn, and willing to help as they are willing to be helped. This helps me to grow as well. And this is what I would desire from them. Be and do to others as you desire them to be and do to you. 

As my mind molds to divine love’s ways, I’m seeing the wondrous results and effects of these realizations as they produce outward growth for others and me. I have much to learn and desire our perfect Father to search my depths and fill them with his divine love. It’s truly being made into a new creation, a better version, of me. My essence stays the same, but the expression of that essence from my thoughts outward is different. It’s a welcomed change that continues to grow.

Focus on love, and let it become your desire and delight by seeing the very real beauty it creates .. this is what I keep hearing.

I am finding all the answers to all I’m truly seeking and desiring in this instruction, is it really that simple? We’ve made life and knowing of our heavenly Father complicated by living in a lack of love. We connect to Him through his love by becoming in harmony with it, and his ways are always governed by love. Life gets much simpler, easier, and freeing when we start becoming a part of his love for it brings all into harmony and peace.

So I’m learning to keep my focus on my development in the love of divinity and all it entails, and as for others to simply love them with this love I’m learning of and gaining for my own by God’s grace. And I find it brings about what I was really hoping for in the first place.

May we all get close to this love and live in and by it and leave it at that.

Matthew 5:4 Blessed are those who mourn, For they shall be comforted.

spa

The higher we ascend in understanding of divine love; the more our hearts start to mourn for the suffering occurring in this world. Our own peace doesn’t comfort us, for how can one who loves be comforted while others continue to suffer, and suffer greatly? In a world of suffering, peace is a byproduct of a hope, thus an illusion until the hope is fulfilled.

In lack of understanding, we are unaware of the extensive suffering throughout the world on many levels and the part we play in perpetuating the cruelty, suffering and pain. We don’t really “see” it. We may hear of it, but it doesn’t penetrate our being causing us to make a change. We feel empathy for a moment, but the blindness allows us to get caught up in our daily lives feeding the very cruelty we despise. Our hearts and minds are darkened so that we think “things aren’t so bad” and “we are pretty good”, thus others who are enduring suffering feel the coldness of a “hardened heart”. It’s understanding our blindness and the ability to be blind that creates true humility. We don’t know as we should. 1 Corin 8:2

For all creation is in bondage to the cruelty of others, as well as their own cruelty upon themselves. As a human being it’s near impossible to not be an instrument of cruelty to creation on some level. Our infrastructure isn’t built on the care of others, but on their abuse and suffering. And as it continues to expand upon cruel foundations, the suffering only increases. It’s like mud is everywhere and we can’t become clean, and the current mud makes more mud.

As we start to awaken to the truth, thus divine love, we start to see both the suffering and the part we play in it more clearly. This mindfulness is difficult to behold, for it cloaks the heart in a garment of mourning and sadness.

In this awareness, our hunger and thirst for righteousness grows strong and we push into it with all our being. Our hope is that the Creator will soon have great mercy and come to His creation to save, heal, restore, and renew. We have enough suffering. We need healing and renewal. Malachi 4:2 We need the medicinal touch of the Creator to flood this world like a light in the darkness to set us free from fear, pain, suffering, and death that we receive and give. To open up the door into this realm and let His presence overtake this place. For with every day, the suffering increases and a spirit of mourning grows heavy.

It’s a hope that can only be fulfilled by His spirit alone infusing this realm, infusing us, for it is impossible for the enslaved human spirit, which is bound in weakness, to break such strong bonds. With this hope of deliverance for all of creation from the chains of suffering, we become prisoners of hope. Prisoners, in their weakness, who can become so much more by His power in them. We are the problem, and we, in our very weakness, are the cure for Christ came to make us into the temple of the spirit of God, the spirit we all so desperately need. May we seek to be the temple of His divine nature.

Psalm 30:11 You have turned for me my mourning into dancing; You have put off my sackcloth and clothed me with gladness,

This verse and others like it, put a spark of life into the sadness, a hope. The hope that one day soon the suffering will end, that there will be no more cruelty, pain, and death. That the dawning day will truly bring in a Day that the Lord has made. Psalm 118:24 A Day to change all days. 

The ways of life are so beautiful. They captivate the spirit like the most stunning sunset. The purity and perfection they contain is glorious, harmonious, loving and life-giving. Yet, here in the world it is near impossible to abide in this beauty that our hearts so long for. Thus our hunger and thirst for His righteousness increase by which perfection is manifested among all of creation. We need deliverance, a healed creation, and the promise of it keeps us prisoners to this hope. I pray a hope that is soon fulfilled.

While we wait for the consummation of all our hopes, may we continue to seek to increase and abound in loving kindness. In this world, even little lights seeking to love others in sincerity and truth make a significant impact.

Zechariah 9:11-12 “As for you also,

Because of the blood of your covenant,

I will set your prisoners free from the waterless pit. 

Return to the stronghold,

You prisoners of hope.

Even today I declare

That I will restore double to you

A Free Mind is a Hopeful Reality

A Free Mind is a Hopeful Reality

space

This weekend I looked behind me, and it was a vast nothingness; the past wasn’t there.

This is a welcomed awareness. It was a vision that granted me a deeper understanding sending me into greater levels of enlightenment thus freedom.

Except for our memories, the past doesn’t exist. However, most of us act like it’s a living reality, thus make it one. We live by it, and from it create our present and future. Sometimes we try to hold onto it and live as a 20-year-old chasing what once was and thus are never satisfied with today. Other times, we live by its wounds, which taint our current health, relationships, jobs, etc. For example, we were hurt in a previous relationship in which someone betrayed us, and now we don’t or find it hard to trust others. We failed in a business venture, and now we don’t follow our desires but work in a job we don’t like. A parent called us a loser, and now we overeat to drown out that resounding voice echoing in our head. These are examples of living in and by the past, thus it creates our present moments and future. This projection of the past into the future is often at the core of those who struggle with depression, hopeless, and feeling trapped. This mentality can quench our hope because it prohibits our minds from growing and creating a present and future we do desire.

The fulfillment of hope, thus change, comes from allowing ourselves to learn from the past, but not live in the past. In learning from it yet not in it, our hope starts to become fulfilled, because we are open to learning and growing, which brings the fulfillment of the things hoped for. A learning and growing mind, a present mind, is receptive to new opportunities and better ways of being because it’s learning new ways of thinking. It enables alteration within our mind’s process thus real change in our choices, actions and behaviors.

What has this to do with our relationship with God? Everything.

The Spirit of God is in the present, for that is what exists and is real. As our internal teacher and counselor, He speaks to us right now with the purpose of transitioning our minds to operate by His truth and loving kindness. 1 Timothy 1:5 If our minds are bound to the past by functioning in and by mindsets like blame, bitterness, resentment, vengeance, covetousness, maliciousness, hatred, backbiting, unforgiveness, jealousy, self-pity, and so on we won’t hear His voice instructing us in a better way. When we give these mindsets control of our thoughts, they are loud and consuming. The thoughts God establishes in us are opposite of these, thus we have to be willing to turn away from these mindsets and learn to think in accordance to His wisdom, truth, righteousness and loving kindness. This is part of renewing our mind and a significant part of the repentance we’re called to. Romans 1:28-32, Romans 12:2

When we seek and follow His instruction, our minds transition to a present mindset where God guides us in new directions. He, and not our interpretation of the past, establishes our thoughts, thus our minds create fresh perspectives that translate into new actions, thus changes, and hopes fulfilled.

A part of moving out of our past and into the present is viewing our past with thanksgiving and honor. The upsets of the past can teach us important lessons of wisdom, truth and love that if we learn we won’t repeat the past hurts. All we went through and the people who were involved in those lessons teach us compassion and understanding. Once we learn from our situations, we are able to help others because we’ve learned the truth and practice the truth. Our past is cloaked with thanksgiving and honor when we see all the experiences and people they contained as part of our journey of growing in alignment with the divine wisdom of God. In this, the past, thus the present, translates into blessings instead of continual cursings because we’ve learned, grown, and can now help others. Some of our greatest hurts can teach us life-altering lessons that propel us forward to gaining a mind established on truth.

I’ve tasted a lot of different pains in my past. Once I started to seek after the truth, God has been using them to teach me and bring me to a deeper level of understanding and compassion I wouldn’t have had otherwise. It is truly God working all for good for those who love Him. Romans 8:28

This understanding of learning from our past but not living by it is deep and personal. We each have a myriad of experiences from our past, and if we allow the Spirit of Truth to teach us, we will learn from those experiences, grow, and begin to live in the present out by the wisdom they provided. This understanding sets our mind free, thus frees us.

A Time of Transition

A Time of Transition

Space 

We are in a time of transition as one age comes to a close and a new age begins. The Kingdom of Heaven, which has been separate from this earth’s reality as a spiritual kingdom, is becoming the kingdom of this earth; the flesh, physical. The birth pangs of the earth transitioning into the Kingdom of Heaven are upon us.

The kingdom of darkness/evil that has reigned over the physical realm has begun its descent. Thus, the ways of evil will turn upon those who do them, and the ways of righteousness will prosper those who do them. It’s time to abide in purity. The power to live by and according to the spirit of Christ has come through understanding and revelation.

Within the firstborn, the Kingdom of Light started as a mustard seed and has been growing. They have been transitioning for some time now. As a plant breaks above the soil, this Kingdom’s reign within them is breaking through and entering into this earth’s reality as it overtakes their reality. They are the light bearers through this transition.

This transition is occurring because the heavenly Father/Mother’s love is being made manifest. This means all mankind will be refined within their souls to be in harmony with this perfect love. A great healing is upon the earth, which is the fulfillment of the salvation that Christ brought by bringing the fullness of the Godhead into this realm by bringing it into mankind.

The Godhead

Jesus Christ holds the fullness of God, thus the male and female side of God, the King and Priest. Not only has this been a time of a marriage between the pure virgins and Christ, but also the coming together of these two aspects of the spirit of the Godhead. When Jesus Christ ascended after His resurrection, part of His spirit, the spirit of truth, was given to mankind to purify souls to be able to contain the fullness of God (Father/Mother). God couldn’t come in fullness until souls were first purified to receive Him and be His temple at the end of the age. What brings in the end is when the spirit of the divine is no longer spilt as it was at Christ’s death/resurrection, but is reunited within mankind as one. This establishment of God upon the earth and union of the Father and Mother occur within the souls of mankind for they are the creations to hold the spirit of God.

This fusion, the fullness of the Godhead, possesses great power. It isn’t a power like that of mankind. It’s a power that comes in gentleness, strength in weakness, and perfect love. Perfect love is the true power. Those who have been united to Christ understand this to be true, for it’s this perfect love that healed every infirmity of their soul; an impossible feat for any person.

The mother side of God, the Holy Spirit, Wisdom, the female voice in the Proverbs, was welcomed into the hearts of those diligently seeking truth and those with a love for the truth. At Her instruction, (she is a part of Christ), these souls became prepared to receive the fullness of God thus the other aspect of God, the perfect love, the King, the Father. In this union, they hold the fullness as Jesus held the fullness when on the earth. She has been dismissed, oppressed, overlooked and trampled. But as her King comes, all that trampled her will be set aright by the purifying fire of the Father.

Ascension and Taking Flight

Those who have diligently sought the true heavenly Father/Mother have already experienced their birth pangs (intense purging and renewal of their minds); birth (becoming governed fully by the spirit of God) and now they embark on a new beginning (the spiritual kingdom infused into their physical reality). They are learning to fly, as they have become creations of the air, of the spirit. They are transitioning from a diligent seeking heart to being fully led as they enter the eternal rest. They are like a lamp that emanates pure light, spirit of Christ. All they possess is under the governance of the divine spirit of the Godhead. In entering their rest, they enter into the very heart of God. It is His lifeblood that pumps through their veins, thus the power of regeneration.

These have partaken of the wedding ceremony of Christ. They have united to Christ in their flesh. They also have united to souls of mankind in a new way, in a bond of love. In this time of establishing their vows, their commitment is to love and honor ALL of creation as they allow the spirit of Christ, the spirit of perfect love, to flow through them.

Entering the Refining Fire

For those who didn’t embrace the spirit of truth and thus transition, they are now entering their refinement. Like one who is sick, as their healing begins their physical state will get worse before it gets better, as all that is causing the sickness (sin) is purged out. This is the revealing of hearts, lives being turned inside out, as all the idols that covered their nakedness are dissolved. It’s the beginning of the end of corruption’s reign in their soul. There is no more escaping the consequences of evil; hypocrisy, hatred, lusts, unforgiveness, cruelty, bitterness, envy, strife, dishonor, and torments to others. These acts against love will cause great affliction in those who do them. All that will remain at the end of this period of refinement is the purified, righteousness and renewed spirit that is of the one true God. This refining will continue until God is all in all.

Pick Up Your Mat and Walk

For everyone, it’s time to pick up our mats and walk; to walk in the path of righteousness, which are the path of life. It’s time to believe the healing we have sought is available. This healing starts within the soul, as true healing does. We need only to step out in faith in obedience to perfect love to see the power of God manifested in our lives. This means doing the right thing as directed by the spirit of divine understanding coming from within. It’s a time of purging all that isn’t of the Father/Mother’s pure love, and walking in perfect love. Desire to be led by this love in all ways always.
