Ever felt that life was urging you onto the next phase, stage, or stratum of life? That’s where I’m at.

Lately, I’ve been going through a lot of changes in my perceptions and understandings about the heavenly Father of us all. At times it felt like everything was turning upside down, and sometimes it still does. But he has taught and shown me enough of his divine love that in an odd way my footing has never felt so solid. (I use “he” for simplicity sake, for God is spirit.)

It’s like there was a shell from the residue of this world around my perception of him that blocked me from seeing him as he wanted me to, thus how I saw myself and others. It feels like that shell broke away, and the immense love and care that I perceive is absolutely beautifully glorious. Being infinite, I know I’ll always be learning and growing in my connection to this utmost perfect divine spirit, but what I’m “seeing” is a love that is far beyond what most have imagined, naturally for he is far far beyond us in spirit and nature, yet he remains closer to us than our breath, for he is of perfect love.

Seek and you will find …

If we diligently seek to know the truth, we end up growing in love. When we expand and grow in love everything changes; our perception, our focus, and how we see ourselves, others and our heavenly Father. Over the years of seeking truth, he has manifested himself to me by teaching me life-changing truths, counseling me through many situations and dark nights of the soul, and giving me love I lacked. He has changed me from the inside out to such a degree I no longer recognize who I was as me. He has brought a depth of love into my life that I can give to others that I never knew existed and I only want it to increase and magnify to fill all and all. There is no doubt, by what has transpired in my life that his hand has been shaping, guiding and leading, for everything has grown more beautiful. His essence form is the most caring, majestic, and loving spirit who always wants to guide, lead and help us. But as love is gentle, tender and patient, so is he toward us and he waits for us to come to him. He never forces himself on us. But when we are willing to listen, he is always right there. He is the perfect spirit parent of us all.

We perceive and know God’s spirit according to our level of soul development or maturity. As we transform in our soul, we perceive everything and everyone differently including God. My perception has changed to such an extent that there is a new foundation rising up in my life extending from my morphing soul, one constructed of his divine love. Though small, it’s like my feet have moved onto a new platform. I have so much to learn of this love and still much growth to occur in my soul to be the reflection of this love as I desire.

Due to my growing understanding of the amazing love and nature of our Creator that’s starting to consume my life, I’m allowing this blog and my YouTube Channel to embrace that change as well. I’ve wrestled with leaving the trail I’ve journeyed, but what presses upon me as more important is allowing his reflection to grow truer, that means letting go of the past. When we start stepping ahead, we can leave the past behind.

The heavenly Father wants us to know him, and sometimes, often, by letting go of the past and embracing our present, which he has crafted, helps us to continue to move forward in him and with him, a movement deeper into his perfect divinity.

How true are the two commandments given to us by our Christ: love God with all your heart, soul, mind and strength, and love others as yourself. Love of divinity is what is needed for all of us. And really this is what it all comes down to, isn’t it? All else is a distraction from the attainment of our deepest and truest desires.

Sensory Perceptions Carnal to Spiritual

Sensory Perceptions:

Carnal to Spiritual

space

As we become lights in this world, a reflection of the divine spirit of the heavenly Father, our sensory perceptions change as part of our transformation. They become transmitters of His light into the world. Where we once were governed by our senses from an “outward > in” point of view, we are now governed by an “inward > out” point of view.

Our senses: seeing, hearing, smelling, tasting, and touching, work together to formulate our understanding and perspectives. A carnal mind takes in sensations from the world whose interpretation and understanding are derived from the mass consciousness (cumulative thought of mankind). These sensory perceptions inform us of the physical world. By what we see, hear, smell, taste and touch, we determine want we want and desire as translated by the mass consciousness. Thus, they become the drivers to all kinds of desires directed and governed by the wisdom, understanding, and compulsions of the mass consciousness. For example, you see a picture of a juicy hamburger and the mass consciousness translates that as something to be desired (through its communication channels, media, advertising, etc), thus you desire it.

A spirit mind uses these sensory perceptions in a different way. With the spirit mind, God is in control and governing our thoughts and desires (pure consciousness and NOT mass consciousness), including our sensory receptacles. He translates our sensory perceptions from WITHIN by His divine spirit (pure consciousness). He does this by transforming our sensory modalities from mass consciousness derivatives to pure consciousness outputs. It is no longer what is without that determines our actions, but His sprit that is within. For example, He establishes in us a love for all creation, thus we have cruelty free diets. The images/messages of the hamburger have no impact on our desires, only His understanding, wisdom and love.

Acting by this renewed perception creates a radically different reality as it becomes full of actions grounded in God’s wisdom and love. Christ creates our reality, which is now His, by these renewed sensory communicators. It’s through these senses the character of Christ is pushed out from within us into the world around us. Thus, we are creators (givers) of light and life, and no longer consumers of darkness. He is creating our reality from within out, thus crafting our entire reality into His home, His living temple.

When our sensory perceptions come from “within > out”, they are governed by His spirit, thus our perceptions are formulated in true understanding and wisdom. This heightened and purified understanding travelling through our senses infuses our thoughts, words and behaviors with His nature/light. Understanding, truth, and love implode our senses, thus our lives and the lives of others.

There is a lot here and I’ll be doing videos on them later this week … but here is a brief outline of each with an example.

5 Spiritual Senses

  1. Eyes of Understanding: All that we see is filtered by His truth, understanding and perfect love (fire of God). Thus we act by faith, and not by sight. Ex: You see others in a framework of perfect love, as God sees them, and in that new vision you are able to give them perfect love.
  2. Ears of Wisdom: Our ears are attuned to voice of God within us. Through the journey of seeking Him, we’ve learned to hear and follow His voice. As we are fully united to Him, His voice becomes our inner voice.  Thus the wisdom for a given situation comes from within. By this wisdom, we live as a spirit being who acts in harmony with His law of love. As we follow that inner voice, His purposes and will are manifested in the world. Ex: The inner voice gives you counsel on how to respond to a certain situation. You follow and peace is created where peace once wasn’t. This hearing creates an incredible reality reflecting His wisdom.
  3. Smell of discernment:  This sense relays the true nature of something or someone. It picks up the fragrance of life versus the stench of death. It’s like the sense of when something “smells fishy” (suspicious). It gives us an accurate knowing of someone or something, as God desires us to know, that enables us to respond in line with God’s character. For example, your ability to discern between true prophets and false ones, or accurate teachings and deceptions.
  4. Taste of desire: Our taste is what directs our desires. What we have a taste for or not is what we desire or don’t. As our desires are now His, our tastes for things, activities, people, ways, will be His. Ex: We no longer have a taste (desire) for violent movies, or we no longer have a taste for meat.
  5. Touch of healing: Our touch directs how we interact in our physical lives with the world around us. When He governs our touch, every behavior and act is done out of perfect love, truly a healing touch. Ex: Your actions toward your spouse are out of perfect love and nothing else.

As we are united to the divine through Christ, all our senses are regenerated to reflect the wisdom, character, nature, understanding and love of the heavenly Father. It’s Him, in us, pouring Himself into the world though these modalities, thus we are lights to the world, His light.

These transformed sensory communicators allow the spirit of life to shine outward from us, where before in the carnal mind we gathered to ourselves what we wanted from our senses.

The transformations of our senses enable the shining of our lamps. Among others, there are three ways those with these modalities will shine. They will possess:

  1. Greater wisdom, thus becoming smarter as they are operating by the wisdom of God in their circumstances.
  2. Increasing loving kindness pouring forth from an abundance mindset.
  3. Ability to abide in and create peace and harmony.

These are the fruit bearing trees. There is a lot here to consider, may you see the magnificent power, perfection, beauty and love these transformations create within thus without.

Characteristics of the Spirit Mind

Characteristics of the Spirit Mind

 

The womb of this world is opening and bringing forth the sons of God. Galatians 4:19 They are going through the torn veil and entering into the Holy of Holies to abide in the presence of God and thus for His presence to fill their present. Mark 15:38, John 3:5-6 These symbolic illustrations point to and describe mankind transitioning from the finite flesh mind into the eternal spirit mind. And, what happens as you go through the birth canal leaving the water (womb/earth) and entering into the air (spirit/heaven)? You leave the unreal, death and lies, and enter the real, life and truth. Revelation 4:1

The real has been hidden in the unreal. Revelation 2:17  The real is the present moment, which mankind experiences as a flash because the finite flesh mind abides in the past and the future. Yet the present moment is the only part of our existence that is real. The past only exists as a memory and the future doesn’t exist. So as we are born into the spirit, our minds move into the present and that present expands to become eternity. Abiding in the present is how we dwell within the presence of God because that is where God exists, in the real. When we become present minded within the presence of God, we enter into eternity. When our minds change; we change. This is gaining the mind of Christ. It’s a state of being connected to and governed by the mind of God; thus the will of God. John 12:26, John 5:30, John 8:28. Abiding in the present is the only place we can truly do the Father’s will because there we are completely governed by Him.

This transformation is the work of Christ in us; who is our wisdom, righteousness, sanctification, and redemption. 1 Corinthians 1:30 It’s the new wine-skins and the new wine. This transformation is becoming as a child to enter into the Kingdom; moving into the present as we abide in absolute trust of our loving heavenly Father. Luke 18:17, Matthew 18:4, Matthew 6:33

Below are some mind-shifts we go through as we transition from a finite flesh mind into an eternal spirit mind. As we shift, we become a light in the darkness as the presence of God becomes our reality in the present. Some of these I’ve discussed in videos; some I have not; but I’m sure I will.  This is an amazing transformation, and above all we have to trust God to direct it and create it perfectly in us. Our part is to listen and follow, starting now. Zech 6:15

The points below lead to living in the present moment and God’s sovereign reign in our minds, thus lives.

  • We DRAW WISDOM from the pure consciousness of God and not from the mass consciousness of mankind. James 3:14-17, John 6:27, 63
  • Our EXPECTATIONS are of the PRESENT moment and are ONLY of the things of the SPIRIT (peace, loving kindness, honor, peace, joy, etc), thus no pre-defined physical images dictated by the mankind’s wisdom. 2 Timothy 2:20-26

(The above discussed in: Reshaping the Mind to Abundant life)

  • We SUBMIT our “FREE-WILL” (not truly free, but our ability to create “desired” images of the future based on our present surroundings and pursue those images) to God and let Him direct our will in everything, as we learn following our will only leads to harm. This submission is the true humility, and fear of God. Luke 9:23-24, Isaiah 57:15, Micah 6:8
  • In the moment, we FOLLOW the PROMPTING that comes to mind (action or words to speak) if it’s best to do it at that time. Otherwise, we recommit the idea/task to God and let Him bring it to mind to do in the future. Psalm 37:5-6, 23 What is best is determined by what aligns to the nature of God (what creates peace, love, kindness, joy, rest). This knowledge of God’s nature is the oil (truth) we need in our lamp (soul) to be lit (connected to Christ). Now you see why; it’s the foundation needed to be able to be present minded. Matthew 25:1-12, John 6:45 
    • Thus, planning for the future (lists, goals, etc) is greatly limited; instead we trust God to prompt and direct us daily and keep our expectations of the spirit. Isaiah 55:8-9, Galatians 5:22-23

(The above discussed in: Sabbath Rest and the Eternal Mind)

  • The present creates the future; thus TODAY we ACT on the WISDOM of God that creates peace, love, mercy, joy, honor, etc today. For, tomorrow is created out of today. James 3:18
    • One moment establishes and directs the next, thus we let God establish loving-kindness and peace in this moment by the wisdom He gives us.
  • We FULLY TRUST God to direct our actions/steps each day according to His wisdom. We listen in the awareness of our present and obey. Prov 3:5-6
  • We are AT PEACE and REST as we can abide fully in the present moment without worrying about the next. When we are doing what God directs each moment, we know we are doing the perfect thing at that time; we don’t need to be concerned with doing something else. Isaiah 26:3
  • We trust God with all our SPIRITUAL development; trusting He is working ALL for our good in each moment. Romans 8:28, Psalm 32:10 We listen, learn, and obey His voice more continually in conscious awareness thus moving obedience into our unconscious awareness. And, His mercy covers all as we grow in unity with Him. We trust Him with the increase of our growth; as it’s His work in us. Ephesians 2:10, 1 Corin 3:7 We trust Him to bring to mind the concepts/truths we learn from Him, when we need them. John 14:26
  • By grace, we are PURGED from MINDSETS of HARM that keep us tied to the past, thus to the pit; like blame, personal vengeance, and un-forgiveness. As a child; we lift up those who hurt us to our Father and let Him counsel us and work out the situation for the good of all. Matthew 5:44, Luke 6:35 We follow His instruction and don’t seek personal retribution. Matthew 6:14-15, Romans 12:17-21

(The above discussed in: Letting Go of the Pit )

  • We FOLLOW our NATURAL RHYTHM, thus not hurried/rushed or slowing down (procrastination, etc). Thus, God directs the happenings of our lives; while we let go of trying to control how the future occurs. Jeremiah 8:6
  • Once we commit all our desires to God, God directs us by our desires. Thus, we DO WHAT WE DESIRE, not what we don’t, this is a significant part of loving without hypocrisy. Psalm 37:4-5
  • We SEE ourselves, others, and God in the PUREST of LOVE for we are “seeing” from within the presence of God, who is love. In this “sight”; pure love is sown and grown in the earth. This love entails all the characteristics of God; honor, truth, purity, righteousness, mercy, justice, peace, etc. Thus, all our actions and words are of the intent of the purest of love. 1 John 4:16

We are like trees; we grow. The Kingdom of Heaven is like a tree that grows. Matthew 13:31-32 This transition is a process. Trust your heavenly Father to birth you into His Kingdom perfectly. It’s He who establishes your faith as He assembles the truth, His mind, in you. When God creates your reality, your present, then you are a son of God. Romans 8:19, Romans 8:14
