Immortal Fractals

fractal-2038214_1280

 

We are immortal fractals of God’s eternal thought of us. As a fractal of God, we also create a fractal reality.

As fractals, each part of creation has the same character as the source and as the whole. How ever deep we go into creation or how far beyond, the character of the whole is seen. This quality is a reflection of Oneness where the many is one and the one is many.

Two essential attributes of our character as a fractal of God’s Self are the creative forces of free will and desire. Desire directs our will and will is our power to create what we desire. As a fractal of God, God’s will is free, thus so is ours. God creates according to his desires, thus so do we. Our prodigal journey (path of enlightenment) affords us a free will and desires of our choice. Though initially our desires and will are misled due to a lack of awareness of who we are, because we are a fractal component of God’s Self and our true desires and will are the same as His, we will return to the Light from which we came.

Our overarching desires for peace, joy, love, abundance and rest reflect our united desire with God’s will. Yet, our sub-desires regarding how to obtain these higher desires are initially misdirected as we experience the formation of a free will and freedom of desire.

As a budding fractal of a conscious Self, we experience a dream of separation from our Source of Truth as our concept of Self is formed. As a result, we look to our external bodily reality (which we’ve substituted as our source of truth) to fulfill these higher desires. In this disconnect from Truth, our thoughts, which give form to our desires, reflect all that is untrue and unreal and thus we create an unreal, illusionary dream world. We see illusions where Truth should be. We look to illusions to create what only Truth can.

In a lack of understanding of who we are and how we create, we see situations happening to us instead of created by us. Therefore, we respond as if we are separate from them and react as if they are real. Thus our desires of how to manifest peace, joy, abundance, love and life become distorted. We believe we are separate from these higher desires, and we seek to fulfill these desires by acting in their opposites; we “desire” war to gain peace, separation to yield love, striving to obtain rest, and death to enter life. Yet, what we give we create, and we remain confused as to why we create the opposite of what we seek.

We mistakenly look to our illusionary reality (which we unknowingly created), as our source of truth, which blinds us to the Source of Truth. Illusionary thoughts create self-deception, madness, chaos and characteristics not of Truth, and we experience a nightmare of hell.

The prodigal journey back to the Light changes and purifies these sub-desires. As we begin to awaken, Truth replaces our faulty source of truth. Desires become redirected by Truth. One essential Truth we come to know is we, NOW, possess the eternal spirit attributes as part of our fractal nature. As we awaken, we “see” these attributes within and “seeing” them begins manifesting them.

For each one of us, the journey of awareness back to the Light entails the discovery of who we truly are as a fractal of the Great I AM. With open eyes, we create according to our true Source and witness the Kingdom of Heaven in bloom.

A Star is Born

background-3716331_1920

I saw a star, shining in the night sky. And God spoke to the star saying “Be still and know that I am God. Rest in me and know that I am your Light.”

The star was not aware that it was shining, for it had not yet developed self awareness. Instead it dreamed a dream in which it wondered to itself, “Be still? Why should I limit myself when I could move about the universe in infinite ways? Surely it is better to move about and explore the wonders of God’s creation.”

So the star dreamed of moving through a world of time and space. It dreamed of space so that it would be able to move. And it created time such that it could recall where it had been and conceive where it might go. In its dream it wandered infinitely far from the place where God said it should remain.

Soon the star realized that no matter where it moved, it always experienced fear and lack. Every move created the same dark experience. “How can this be?”, the star wondered. “Surely it is because I have wandered away from the place God said I should be. I have violated God’s will to ‘be still’, and I have sinned against him.” The star’s dream became a nightmare in which it was “guilty” before God. And it created death in order to relieve its guilt.

God looked at the dreaming star, shining brightly and resting comfortably in the place where he had placed it. God could see into the star’s dream of guilt and knew it signaled the awakening of the star into self-awareness. For how could the star understand that its light would always shine in accordance with God’s will to “be still”, unless it dreamed it could find its own light by moving away. For God used the dream to create a star-son with self-awareness of its oneness with God’s will.

And with that the star awakened and understood its Self. Never had it moved, never had it done anything it believed itself to do. Instead it understood it had always rested comfortably, forever shining its light and creating the perfect reflection of its Creator.

A Dreamer’s Awakening

landscape-1799006_1920

 

The dreamers awaken and bring with them the gifts of eternal life.

We all dream together, and we all awaken together. Once the Light dawns in one individualized mind that is part of the One, it dawns on all because all is One.

As an embryonic divine Self, our spiritual eyes are closed being not fully formed. As we sleep, we dream. Dreams are illusions in the mind. They convey a “reality” that is opposite of the Truth, which is why they are unreal, yet the Spirit uses them to reveal the Truth to us; as light is known for what it is by the darkness that surrounds it.

Foundation to our dreams is our false belief about ourself. How we perceive ourselves is how we perceive others, reality and God. In unawareness, we don’t realize we are the dreamer and create the image we perceive of ourselves, and the “reality” it projects upon the screen of our minds. We believe we are the character in our dreams, who was born into a world separate from ourself, and that we are the dream. We are at one with a lie. All we “see” are fractals of our beliefs and the world serves as a witness to our illusions. We unknowingly create our “reality”, then respond to it as something separate from ourselves and in this cyclical effect we remain in a deep sleep. Our beliefs create and foster our dreaming mind. But when beliefs are replaced with the knowing of Truth, we awaken.

Our minds are not bound to this world of illusions. Because their Source is God’s living Thought of us, we can always engage this Source of Light within our true Being. We’ve always been connected to it, only unaware of it until we sincerely “look” for it. And being a Light, we will perceive it through our darkened mind if we seek in sincerity for Truth. In the quietness of stillness, we perceive it through the cracks in our false beliefs. The Light inherent in the Truth enters our minds in sovereignty over our false beliefs, and little by little It grows until all our mind is illuminated.

As Truth expands, we release the concept of the false self we created and embrace the Truth that we are God’s holy Thought, which guarantees our holiness and perfection. As we remember who we are in Truth, fear fades, thus all sense of lack, attack, defense, guilt, sin, littleness, weakness, and all the other attributes our minds dreamed up. We are Truth and can only be Truth; only in an illusion can we imagine we are something we are not. In our expanding awareness, we begin to act and respond according to Truth and not our previously held beliefs, thus ending the dream.

All of creation will be revealed for what it is – a holy expression of God. The illusion will fade when its purpose is complete, and it has already begun as we are beginning to see it for what it is. We are no longer blinded into thinking what is unreal is real, which opens our minds to the Truth. The illusion doesn’t last. Only Truth is eternal.

We are not who we thought we were in the dream, but we are the sleeping holy Son of God who is now awakening and bringing all the gifts of eternity with Him.

Know YourSELF

Know YourSELF

We are the living Thought of God. We can’t be separated from our Source or His perfect eternal and unchanging Thought of us. As an extension of Him and His likeness, when we awaken to the Truth from the dream of illusions (which is created by the belief that Truth is not), we perceive our united true Selves as His Self (the Christ).

Truth is … we are peace and peacemakers. We are abundant and manifest perfect abundance. We are eternal beauty and reflect eternal beauty. We are joy and givers of joy. We are divine love and givers of eternal divine love. We are strength and reflect power in gentleness. We are holy and reflect innocence. We are magnificent and are magnified. We are limitless and free as we are only governed by divine love of which we are. We are timeless and abide in the eternal present. We are eternal Life.

There is only Truth. Anything that opposes Truth, which has no living opposite, is an illusion. As our maturing sleeping mind awakens to Truth, our childish dreams which conveyed an opposite reflection of our true Self (which was used to mature our minds in Truth), dissolve into nothingness from which they came.

Truth is known by looking beyond the veil of the illusionary body (we mistakenly think is us), its world and reality (we mistakenly believe is real and true), and time (which keeps us bound to both). Our bodies, the world, and our “reality” reflect our beliefs, not Truth. As our source of truth shifts from the external to the eternal, Truth begins to take the place of illusions and our reality begins to reflect this shift. As our soul awakens by the Light of Truth from the dream of illusions, we begin to reflect the attributes of our Father’s likeness.

In Truth, the means and the end are the same, we create through being. All we are and ever will be is within our true Self in this present moment. Through being in an awakened state, all that we are in Truth is expressed through us as the glorious Light of God.

The Living Thought System

There is a singular, single Thought – God’s complete divine Thought – of which I am. This Thought flows through me and creates the reflection I see and my experience, thus I am the expression of God’s Thought. I am all I need to be in every present moment.

This one living divine Thought runs through all of creation from the Source. Our thoughts are fractal aspects of this Thought. We mistakenly believed we had separate thoughts, but separation is impossible. Because it is impossible, what we believed and created was only an illusion, a dream.

Through the Door of Life

“The last enemy that will be destroyed is death.” ~ 1 Corinthians 15:26

The time is upon us when our collective consciousness transforms, so that we as a creation no longer pass through the door of death but the door of life, ending the illusion and awakening into the real. We awaken to the truth that death is only an illusion allowing the reality of eternal life to fade in all around us.

The foundational lie upholding this illusion is that Death, not God, rules all. Death has the final word in every life by proclaiming: “Thou shalt die!” Who can escape? Its will is unassailable, exalting itself above God’s will that none should die. (John 3:16) But death goes further and stands in the holy place presenting itself as our savior.

Most of us equate death with a release from suffering. We believe death frees us from the travails of illness and pain, ushering us into a place of peace and comfort. It promises to take away our unbearable burdens, worries, guilt and fears. Death is so deceptive and its call as savior so strong that some take their own life that death may save them now.

Let’s be clear, death is not a savior. The way out of suffering, fear and all other illusions isn’t through one’s belief in death’s offerings of peace and comfort. To desire death in any way, shape or form is to choose to put our will and faith in an illusion; for desiring death as a means to escape from any type of suffering sustains the illusion that both death and suffering are real. Release from this illusionary dream isn’t by being separate from our bodies (which include the reality that surrounds them). Our bodies simply reflect our beliefs. They can reflect the illusion of finiteness and death or the Truth of immortality and life. It’s our state of consciousness that shapes energy into its reflective substance and form. What we hold as truth in our minds manifests in our reality. What we believe determines whether we sleep in an illusionary dream of death or awaken to eternal life.

We subconsciously accept that we enter eternal life through death. It’s the ultimate deception because in eternal life the concept of anything dying… ever… isn’t true. Ever. We awaken from this illusion of death and suffering as our faith realigns to this Truth: death is not real. One milestone of this passage of faith is that we no longer desire or put faith in the promised comforts of death in any of its many forms, but instead give our faith to Truth. As we choose to believe death is not real and that God is our only comfort and savior, we awaken and perceive the eternally open door into the Kingdom. This door to life, which is our eternal and ever-present oneness with the divine love of God, remains hidden beneath the dream of death.

As our faith aligns to the Truth of eternal life, we encounter the temptation of death anytime we believe we are not, right now, in God’s perfect care. We are faced with a choice: we can give our faith to Truth or let it remain in the illusion. As the Spirit aligns us to Truth and we put our faith in that Truth, we trust in God’s perfect care and that his divine love never fails. We let go of the idea that death or anything else rescues us from suffering. We realize belief in death or any of its forms only keeps us bound in an illusionary reality.

This awareness reveals that the reality of eternal life, peace, joy, and immortal harmony is ever-present. As we begin to perceive beyond the illusion of death, an awareness of our oneness with God reveals the Kingdom of God is at hand, dissolving the illusion. As we perceive the Kingdom within, we perceive it without. It’s always been, but the illusion of death has hidden it.

Therefore, our escape from the illusion and into life is found in awareness of our oneness with God, not death. The Spirit of God is the eternal living energy of divine love, which extends to all and gives His life to all. Being a part of God’s eternal life we could never die. If we believe in death, we choose the illusion. If we believe in God’s eternal life, we choose Truth. We can’t choose both.

Eternal and unfailing divine love is the Spirit of the Father; the Savior that Jesus Christ extended into creation. In the illusion, death stands as a savior. As we become aware of our oneness with the Spirit of the Father and let go of death’s illusion by no longer putting our faith in it, we begin reflecting eternal life and shine in the likeness of the Father. As the Spirit expels illusionary thoughts of death, our mind becomes a sanctuary (the holy place) for the holy thoughts of God. Our will is joined to God’s and in this oneness our desires of eternal life are manifested. This transformation is a rebirth, from the dream-like “reality” of the finite, into the true reality of the infinite.

  “And whoever lives and believes in Me shall never die. Do you believe this?” ~ John 11:26

Life is But a Dream

A quick reminder … The perfection of Truth is always beyond our finite understanding. Therefore, what we proclaim is always according to our present awareness as we progress out of darkness and ever-deeper into the Light of eternal Truth. As we attune our internal ears and eyes to the Spirit of Truth, the Spirit aligns our understanding and beliefs to Truth. This awareness of progressive understanding is the humility that enables us to continue to learn and grow as a divine being.

We are as God created us and nothing can change that; we are holy, sacred, pure, good and most importantly through this embryonic state we become perfection beyond perfection, which is our ability to ever expand in oneness with God. It’s only in our self-made, illusionary reality (which our senses convince us is real), do we imagine we are limited and separate (cut-off) from God in any way.

Separation from God is impossible because divine love is all-inclusive. Therefore, we must be recipients of his love and are destined to be expressions of his love. In this, we see suffering could never be his eternal will and instead suffering is our creation because we mistakenly believe we are separate from his love. This false belief constructs an illusionary reality that we experience as real because of our physical senses, which are also a part of the illusion. If we trust and put our faith in our senses we remain bound in unawareness. Because we hear, see, taste, smell, and feel we assume what they “tell” us is truth, yet even in this dream how often have our senses misled us. Our true eternal state is perpetual peace, abundance, joy, love, and all the attributes God fashioned in us as a part of Himself.

If we believe suffering is of God, then we make him a sufferer, something he is not. This false image of God enslaves us to suffering. God is eternal and his reality contains nothing of finite characteristics. Only in the darkened dream of illusions can we create such a false image. Jesus Christ came to dispel such illusions not reinforce them – removing sickness, lying thought-forms (aka demons), and even death. He came giving abundant life and proclaiming the “Kingdom of God is at hand”.

However everything serves a divine purpose even this dream. In this dream we experience an illusionary absence of love that we may desire to choose love of our own free will. It affords us this Divine Choice – a choice to be what we are: at one with God’s loving attributes, holy and of his likeness. It provides us a liberty of will that creates a capacity to outpour and extend his divine love. This free-will Choice establishes in us the divine quality of love that makes it what it is – unconditional and freely given. Love gives because it wants to give (an element of “choice”). By choosing the true image of God, in accordance with divine love, we are now empowered to dissolve suffering from our reality because we awaken to the truth that we were always one with this love. In consciously making the Divine Choice, our love of God and all of creation is sincere and not “robotic”, which pure love can never be.

In this dream we live our illusions. Just like a night dream, our reality isn’t actually real, it only seems real. Our illusions are confined to a finite, temporary dream state of consciousness. In our night dreams, we create all we perceive – every character, situation, etc., and we do the same with this “reality.” Science is finally catching up with this aspect of reality that truth-seekers have known for centuries: life is but a dream.

We awaken as we stop putting faith, trust and belief in what our external senses perceive and put them in the internal Voice of God that only speaks peace, love, and eternal life to us. In this realignment of faith (awakening), we begin to release the finite concepts we “created” of sin, evil, guilt, fear, shame, separation, condemnation, suffering, lack, etc. As we go through this transition we struggle and go through many ups and downs as the depth of our illusions are unearthed so we may be liberated into the Truth. To believe in what you internally hear from the Spirit and not what you outwardly see with your eyes is challenging. To believe that our perceived suffering isn’t real is extremely difficult, but it’s how we move out of the illusion and into the Truth. If we persist we are carried in the arms of transformative grace through this transition, and we cannot fail because divine love never fails.

What we believe we create. As we cease to believe in the massive illusion we’ve created, and instead put our faith in Truth, then we will manifest the Kingdom of God as our reality.

How Truth is Revealed

Our individuality is the created part of us. It “sits” like a garment atop a consciousness center, which is part of the immortal Mind of God dedicated to loving and ever-caring for our created individuality. The individuality must be prepared to receive the Mind of God so his Truth can be expressed through it, creating the individual’s experience of His reality. The embryonic individuality’s preparation begins in darkness.

God destined creation to reflect His perfect love back to our individuality through our seamless integration with his Mind. In so doing, God’s Mind extends itself throughout all of creation, where limitless manifestations reflect the attributes of His Truth back to the individuality. Through the KNOWLEDGE of Truth, the individuality observes and experiences continual manifestations that reflect perpetual joy, peace, happiness, growth, connection, and sense of worth, which are among the eternal attributes of God. These attributes possess permanence because Truth underlies their limitless manifestations.

Initially in darkness, the individuality defines Truth by extracting it from the expressions and manifestations it perceives externally. It “looks” outward attempting to discover Truth by asking, “What is the underlining Truth in the forms I perceive?” (For example, what is seen outwardly defines what brings joy, peace, health, purpose, etc.) By trying to extract Truth from an external form, it unknowingly creates an illusion of truth that is form-based, external, and grossly applied over one’s perceived reality. Truth initially seems hidden “outside” the individuality, where it must be discovered in a world wholly separate from itself. The developing individuality is thus encased in an illusionary reality of darkness (separation from God), which it believes reflects truth.

Darkness ultimately serves the individuality by introducing it to the light of Truth through the use of “opposites”. This concept enlightens the individuality to the idea that it resides in darkness where illusions of its apparent separation from God appear “real”, (such as experiences of “lack” or “want”). These illusions assume many forms, revealing a reality of suffering, sickness and decay, governed by the ever-present specters of fear and death. None of this is of God and therefore unreal (not Truth). However all illusions are purposely used to awaken the individuality.

God’s Truth has no opposite because only It exists. By realizing illusions (such as lack and want), are not always true, the idea of “opposites” forms in the darkened individuality and illuminates the first structures of Truth. When first perceived, Truth seems like a lie (unreal) because the individuality initially believes its opposite is true. (For example, when experiencing “lack” the idea of the promised “abundant life” seems unreal. The same applies for all opposites such as peace when perceiving attack, or joy when feeling sadness.) At this point, a conflict occurs within the individuality as to how the opposites it perceives can both be true.

Because of these “opposites” the diligent quest for Truth begins, and the outward-facing senses slowly stop dictating what the developing individuality believes is true. In darkness, the individuality used its senses to define truth by the forms it perceived. It judged which forms produced the “truth” of happiness, peace, satisfaction, purpose, etc., and pursued those forms in order to harvest their “truth”. But in so doing, the individuality quickly realizes that forms are fleeting, taking with them the “truths” they once reflected.

As these forms dissolve into the past and become unreal, the individual becomes conflicted by the idea of how the attributes of Truth can be replaced with an opposite. The individuality looks inward and seeks for Truth’s permanence by asking questions such as; “Where is happiness found in a more permanent way?, How can I experience sustained feelings of worth?, or How can I abide in satisfaction and peace?” These questions can lead a diligent seeker beyond the limits of its illusionary, form-based reality and into the Kingdom of Truth, where the individuality experiences the eternal attributes of God it has long sought for.

Remembering I Am

 

The path into Truth is one of becoming ever more aware of who we truly are and always have been. We all begin this journey in the darkness of unawareness in which our misconstrued beliefs tell us and our “reality” convinces us that we are the opposite of who we truly are.

As we journey the path of enlightenment out of darkness, beliefs in the unreal are replaced with beliefs in the real. We discover we are nothing that we thought we were. It’s freeing and exhilarating, but also challenging as all we once knew begins to be undone making space for the new. Because we are going through a transformation of belief, not only does our transition occur precept upon precept (as we could not accept the Truth in fullness because we currently believe its opposite), but also our outward reality begins to unravel and unfold in accordance to our new beliefs.

This movement from the unreal to the real is the process by which our individual consciousness develops into an expressive and creative outlet for the Mind of God.

During this past year, I’ve become more aware of the real versus the unreal and the power to create what we truly want that is inherent in believing what is of Truth. As I share what I’m learning, to some it may seem unreal and untrue because the opposite is still held as true. But for others, it will be a beautiful and needed confirmation because most of the world is still in darkness. Though we are in various places, we are one. As we each become aware, we heighten the awareness of all.

Dawning of a New Day

Dawning of a New Day

 

As the soul awakens to the supra-conscious mind, it experiences divine trust followed by divine forgiveness. These attributes originate from the supra-conscious and equip the soul to operate in accordance with the supra-mind’s purposes. Together these Spirit attributes enable the layering of perfect divine potentials in the soul’s reality. As these potentials build layer by layer, the soul becomes consciously aware of the kingdom of God.

In this moment resides the perfect divine potential waiting to manifest. Its manifestation is the expression of the supra-consciousness through the soul (the Christ). Divine potentials find entrance into the soul’s reality through divine trust and they have space to manifest by divine forgiveness. Divine trust connects the soul to the supra-consciousness so divine potentials manifest in the soul’s reality, and divine forgiveness liberates the present moment so the potentials can be established and propagate.

Divine Trust

As the soul awakens, it experiences the power of divine trust. Prior to its awakening through the instructions of the Spirit of Truth, the soul learns the constructs of divine trust (trust in divine love) and gains the desire to trust, but lacks the power to truly act in this trust. As the soul awakens, it receives the power to trust, because the soul becomes aware of divine trust from the supra-consciousness. Trust is the first divine attribute the soul experiences. It’s the state of consciousness that connects the individualized soul to the supra-consciousness in a way that allows the expression of all the other attributes to manifest. Divine trust is the soul’s initial conscious experience of oneness with the Christ within.

Divine trust forms an open door to the supra-consciousness that enables this divine consciousness to expand into the soul. This trust enlarges within the soul until the soul fully trusts in the unfailing nature of divine love and no longer trusts in physical expectations (i.e., the “world”). This expansive trust enables the supra-mind to govern all the soul expressions, and therefore manifest divine potentials in the soul’s reality. The divine trust becomes an eternal gate in the soul through which the supra-mind expresses itself in creation.

Divine Forgiveness

Entering through the open door of divine trust, the next divine attribute to enter the soul in power is divine forgiveness. Like trust, the soul learns about the constructs of divine forgiveness from the Spirit of Truth and gains a desire to divinely forgive, but only upon its awakening does it experience its true power.

Divine forgiveness has the power to liberate the present moment from past negative emotions that create suffering in the soul, and fill the present with divine love which heals and renews the soul. It purifies the present moment, enabling the expression of the other divine attributes. It’s an essential attribute involved in the transformative process of “Life”, regenerating the soul from a mortal experience to an immortal one. In divine trust, the soul rests in the perfect unfoldment of this highly desirable attribute, for it is the experience of the soul breaking free from the bondage of the self-generated consciousness.

Emotions are the expressed energy of the soul. Energy’s vibrations create harmony or disharmony in reality. When the energy is tainted by negative past emotions, it creates a disharmonious reality. For example, if anger lingers in the soul’s consciousness from a past event, then it impacts the emotional atmosphere of the present. When it is a disharmonious energy, like anger, it creates disharmony is the soul’s reality. Versus, when the soul feels the harmonious vibrations of love, it creates desirable circumstances and conditions.

The self-directed consciousness, which is crafted in corruption, holds on to past negative emotions through its erroneous beliefs, perceptions, judgments and constructs, and as a result the soul experiences emotional pain and suffers for events that no longer exist. Upon the soul’s awakening, as the supra-consciousness supplants the corrupted self-directed consciousness, and through divine forgiveness the present is completely freed from negative past emotions. In the light of the supra-consciousness, the past reflects its truth – that it is unreal. Instead, the now becomes real and new, alive with divine love, the source of harmony, vitality, and joy.

Divine forgiveness exists right now for each one of us. It’s woven into the fabric of the energetic structure of creation. All that exists is the present moment’s energetic vibration. This “purity of the present moment” is a reflection of our Creator’s divine forgiveness available to us all. In truth, we are totally free, liberated, and “forgiven” with every new moment. When we receive the awareness of divine forgiveness from the supra-consciousness through the open door of trust, we are able to fully abide in this truth and we are free.

Through oneness with the supra-consciousness, the soul receives the inflow of divine attributes and expresses their outflow into creation, illuminating reality with Truth. As the soul reflects perfect divine potentials, it arises and shines in the dawning of a new Day.

The Golden Key

Therefore if any man be in Christ, he is a new creature: old things are passed away; behold, all things are become new.  ~ 1 Corinthians 5:17

Then He who sat on the throne said, “Behold, I make all things new.” And He said to me, “Write, for these words are true and faithful.”  ~ Revelation 21:5
