Awakening the Divine Soul
When the soul opens its sacred inner chamber through divine gratitude to the Spirit of Truth, the soul never knows what it will receive, for it always receives exactly what it needs and what it’s prepared for.
When the soul’s divine soul structure is ready for the divine consciousness, it receives the transformative work of divine grace. Divine grace is the regenerative energy that establishes the constructs of a divine soul within the soul, and when this work is complete, divine grace is the power that awakens it to life. This awakening is a transcendent period of regeneration, liberation, returning to innocence, and the beginning of righteousness governing perfect cause.
When we give grace to another, we pour love and forgiveness into a life that helps it to heal in a way it couldn’t without it. When the Creator pours his grace into us, we regenerate and our divine souls are awakened and manifested, which couldn’t occur without it. At it’s reception, this divine grace travels through us and into the souls around us uniting us into one harmonious entity.
Grace is the healing and regenerative power of love. It encapsulates the elements of love, compassion, forgiveness, and mercy. It’s given to a humble soul who has embraced its lesson in love, and is ready to heal and move forward on its spiritual path. It’s given when the soul is ready to give that same grace to others. And when it’s divine grace, thus all of its elements divine, it has a regenerative effect on the soul. Where there once was error, this grace heals and renews the soul bringing it into righteousness.
Any attribute; love, forgiveness, judgment, justice, gratitude, grace etc. can be known through the self-determined mind or through the eternal spirit mind. The former is of our self-generated understanding. The latter is of the Spirit of Truth’s craftsmanship within our soul. When these attributes are of the former, they are limited, finite, and succumb to error. But when they are of the latter, they possess the spirit of divinity in the likeness of the Creator.
Divine attributes are received from the Source when the soul is ready to receive them and willing to freely give them to all others and all of creation. Thus, before they are received anything that hinders them from being received or given is addressed by the Spirit of Truth. This is the soul’s journey through the wilderness that eventually brings the soul to the juxtaposition of realities, where it encounters divine grace to transition it into a divine soul state.
Awakening the Soul
When the soul lets go of its self-determined ways and exchanges them for faith in the ways of the divine; then it’s prepared to transition into a divine soul state. At its awakening, living faith carries the divine elements from the Source into the divinely constructed soul. As the soul walks in faith in divine love, its faith reaches into the Source, connects to it, and then pulls the divine elements back into its soul. Then the working of grace transitions those elements from faith into substance, until those divine elements are fully at one with the soul.
Beauty for Ashes
From my observer’s seat within my soul, a distinct delineation resides between the reflection of my self-determined soul and the vision of the divine soul forming within. What a twisted mess the self-determined consciousness is, and the reality it manifests. Yet, I’m filled with eternal gratitude for the perfection of his work in all these imperfections as he reveals them to me step by step.
Liberation from the soul’s self-determined ways comes through the working of divine grace, which is more than sufficient to conquer the afflictions that avail the soul. When the soul’s lessons from its temporary imperfections are complete, this grace makes all things divine. Only the Spirit of Truth knows when the temple of the divine soul is finished, so until then the soul’s trust resides in peace in his perfect workmanship.
Everything is purposeful and perfect. The Spirit gives the soul only what it needs to advance, nothing less and nothing more. Every personal circumstance conditions the soul for oneness. Through this process, mindful awareness enables the soul to advance toward a divine soul state; otherwise the soul remains stuck in a circuitous state and repeats the same circumstantial lessons over and over.
Though I see the purposefulness and even perfection in all these things, at times I tire of my self-determined reflection. The Spirit of Truth has formed an insatiable desire in my soul that can only be filled through oneness with the divine consciousness. As I draw closer to him, this desire increases and the increasing contrast of my frailties drapes my soul with a spirit of heaviness. Yet, even this spirit is purposeful in his profound love. Through the weightiness, he pours deeper revelations of his grace into my soul, and he beckons me to put down the weight of weakness and embrace the power of his grace, which in its perfect progression transforms every weakness. This workmanship belongs to him, and the liberation is for all. As I perceive grace’s power to transform my soul, the magnificence of his ways and the flawlessness of his love overwhelm me time and time again.
And God is able to make all grace abound toward you, that you, always have all sufficiency in all things and may have an abundance for every good work (a work grounded in divine love). 2 Corinthians 9:8
In response, I willingly and joyously meet him at the altar so his all-consuming love may engulf all that isn’t of his character, which allows his reflection to shine through my soul. As what I created becomes ash, what he created arises from the ashes in a beauty of oneness. He fashioned my inner soul in grace, and as grace has its final work in transforming me into a divine soul, it accomplishes what I cannot as a self-determined soul; to cross the infinite chasm into a divine soul state of oneness.
This power of divine grace enters a soul; first, when it fully desires to completely reflect the divine attributes, which is a significant part of the soul journey. Second, when it humbly recognizes it can’t accomplish this on it’s own because of its current soul state. Third, when it fully lets go of self-determination. When these soul states are reached, then the soul is ready to receive transformative divine grace.
Upon this divine grace’s entrance into the soul, it experiences a heightened state of divine gratitude, the essence of praise. In this dawning light, every hunger, thirst, desire, hope and promise begins to be fulfilled. The soul’s perception of time alters as divine forgiveness, encapsulated in divine grace, transmutes the past, present and future bringing it into a harmonious expression of present perfect cause. The soul rises above time. And, as the soul encounters this incoming living light, the results of divine grace are experienced and the divine soul awakens to the internal eternal light.
This soul journey into a divine soul is as difficult as it is inspiring. There is no greater pursuit, and no pursuit will ask as much of the sojourning soul. Weaknesses grow continuously more prevalent, yet the purpose and restitution of them is magnificently inspiring. Thus, for a traveller on this path, the grace of the Creator is like the most brilliant indescribable gift. It’s the regenerative power that awakens the divine soul within.
To console those who mourn in Zion,
To give them beauty for ashes,
The oil of joy for mourning,
The garment of praise for the spirit of heaviness;
That they may be called trees of righteousness,
The planting of the Lord, that He may be glorified.” Isaiah 61:3
