Transfer of Consciousness

Transfer of Consciousness:

The Rising Morning Star

 

space

Upon our soul incarnating into this mortal realm, our consciousness that is housed within our soul is a subset of the mass consciousness of humankind. This consciousness creates what we perceive and then in our “free-will” we choose how to respond, which in turn creates certain effects. Though, until we know the divine love of our heavenly Father, the only choices we have are bound and limited to the constructs of this consciousness. And as we come to know divine love, we realize how limiting they are. Yet a true choice does exist, because within this mass consciousness there is a way to connect to the consciousness (soul) of our Father and to start to learn and be directed by his consciousness instead, thus become truly alive. This is what Christ Jesus created for us, the narrow way through the narrow gate, and he leads us if we will follow. Divine love always provides a way. And, once our choice for divine love is made, our journey really begins.

This mass consciousness is in contradiction to the pure consciousness of our Father, for it exists separate from him. Because he is life, and this consciousness is separate from that life, it’s a consciousness of death. Death is separation from divine love. Without divine love, thus truth, there is error, which creates pain, suffering, hardship, affliction, fear, decay, destruction, and all the descriptors of death. It’s full of the “awareness” of humankind that is shaped in separation from our Father’s divine love and truth. Thus it contains humankind’s limitations, false judgments, illusions, lies, lusts, foolishness, corrupted desires, etc. This consciousness is the controller of our “self-made” mind.

This realm of consciousness is a simulated, unreal, dream state, and dead state. In divine love, this place can’t exist as something real. As we are learning through quantum physics, it is like a hologram, thus like a dream state. It’s a type of virtual reality serving a purpose in the construction of our soul. In separation from life, nothing can exist, only an illusion. But it’s a purposeful illusion, or it wouldn’t exist at all. This is the first part of our journey of being made into souls of light. It is serving a multitude of purposes, which above all is our ability to abide in divine love. Thus, this temporary unreal reality isn’t our permanent residence. It’s only a temporal experience that serves to lead us into a true oneness with our heavenly Father, thus into immortality as his eternal child.

The way we connect to our heavenly Father in an oneness is through and by divine love. For us to possess divine love, we require “free-will” so we have a choice to love because love is always voluntary. Further, we require our own individuality, which flows out of “free-will”. Only when we possess individuality can we receive and give love, otherwise, there is  no giver and no receiver. This unreal consciousness simulation plays a role in establishing both of these, among other things. This entire experience has the final end of creating us to be an extension of our Father by being one with him through divine love and by his will absorbing our will (which we willing desire by going through this experience and seeing what our will separate from his perfect will creates). Thus we become true children reflecting our Father’s eternal soul of divine love. Upon realizing our purpose here, we start heading down the path and for the doorway out instead of being distracted by the unreal reality within.

The new birth of our soul as a soul of light is when we are no longer governed by this mass consciousness of humankind. Through the workings of the spirit of truth and divine love, we become detached from that mass consciousness little by little. Until finally this connection dies through the death to death, which Christ Jesus made possible by entering death himself and defeating it. In this final severance, we are able to connect to the consciousness of our Father, because a place for him to dwell within us has been made, a temple without hands. His temple is our soul constructed of his truth and love that is now able to receive him, which is to receive the inflow of his consciousness, his will, or his governance over our will. When we experience his will as ours, it is our complete freedom, for he desires to give us everything beautiful, joyous, magnificent and glorious. Above all he desires to give us his endless love, which we are now able to receive and give because of this journey of the soul we’ve traversed. And above all we desire to give him divine love, thus completing a true unbreakable eternal bond. So we are thankful for the journey, but also very thankful when this part of it draws to an end and the turning point into life is upon us.

This transformation into our Father’s likeness starts within our soul as we begin gaining the constructs of truth and divine love that reflect the consciousness of our Father, thus allowing us to receive the inflow of his consciousness within our soul, thus as a subset of his. Overtime as we continue to grow within our soul in this new way, we start to completely change on the inside with hints reflecting on the outside, like a woman starting to reveal a child growing in her womb. But because we are still connected to the mass consciousness our transforming soul remains under the flesh veil. We are being built to hold the consciousness of our Father, and he moves in when the temple is finished, or in other words when our soul is formed to the extent that we can contain and be moved by his pure consciousness.

Thus during this process, we experience a very deep purification down to our thoughts and desires, which in turn changes many of our habits, our lifestyle, the nature of our relationships, our choices, our perspectives, everything. During this process, we become very separate from the ways of the consciousness of humankind. This consciousness governs us less and less and the constructs of divine truth and love more and more. As we leave the reality constructed by the consciousness of humankind behind, it feels like being a caterpillar in a cocoon detached from the rest of the reality. And thus, our interaction with the unreal consciousness is very limited.

Everything of the unreal consciousness is stripped away until all that remains are the truths and love constructed in us by the spirit of truth and divine love. We experience a very powerful singular desire to be governed by his will and one with his divine love and that pushes us through the death to death, which is also the birth of our soul of light. And then the last chord or connection to the mass consciousness is cut and we are truly set free to arise as a new creation completed governed by the consciousness of loving heavenly Father, thus become children of his reflection.

In this final severance, we are completed, though ever expanding, as his temple made through the spirit of truth and divine love. In this, an eternal embrace in divine love is established between our heavenly Father and us, his beloved children. Then a transfer takes place between being governed by the mass consciousness and our Father’s consciousness. Hence, our new birth is completed. He fills his temple, our newly constructed soul. His will absorbs our will, his breath is our breath, and our consciousness is a subset of his consciousness. We are truly alive and awaken from the sleep of death. We are resurrected from the dead as we are no longer directed by the death state of the old consciousness trapped in error.

The entrance of this divine consciousness into our prepared soul is the morning star rising in our hearts. It’s the light of life that causes us to grow for eternity in the wonderments of our Father’s will expressed through our individuality and our love, which is now one with his.

Father’s Day Celebration

In Celebration of

our heavenly Father

Space

Our Father is coming home.

Our “new” or “second” birth is our Father’s spirit flowing as one with ours as our soul willingly submits and joins his essence at our point of origin; the door in our soul that touches eternity. From this point, his spirit can continually flow into all we are and he and us can experience the love he created us for.

His spirit of liquid light comes in harmony with ours when our desires, versus actions, are aligned to his. Our actions find true alignment with his once we are fully inhabited by his spirit. Only he creates the perfect moments of our lives in perfect causality; therefore perfect effect. We can’t. Therefore, it’s the harmony of our desires, intentions, and motives with his desires that lead to our oneness with him, not the perfection of our actions. Without his full governance of our free will, our desires remain unfulfilled for it’s impossible for us in our own strength to walk in divine love. We can only do so through an oneness with him that is formed out of the workings of his Spirit of love and truth in our soul and in our lives.

As his liquid light flows continually through our inner soul-gate that touches eternity, it pushes out through all our individuality consuming our mortal bodies and continuing to expand beyond. We are no longer bound by our mortal mind and flesh, which has been our grave, but we now extend beyond it. Our mortal framework, which was seen as our entirety, becomes transformed into immortality by the inflow of his spirit that encompasses us as an ever expanding cloud. This cloud of his engulfing spirit around us is ever expanding in its nature and make-up because it holds his spirit, which is boundless. Thus, our spirit also becomes an ever expanding radiance in our oneness with him. As our spirit holds his spirit and he holds ours in a true oneness, we expand together through the outflowing of love brimming from our point of origin, our connection point to him. Love always expands outward. All that is contrary contracts our spirit within itself. This retraction is the opposite direction of true life whose end is ultimately reflected in the shadow illustration of death.

As a part of the process of us coming to a new soul birth, our individuality is crafted into an individual uniqueness because our Father can only flow through this uniqueness crafted by him and not our conformity to some pre-determined image or state. In non-conformity of our individuality to anything in this earth reality, we move into a state of an ever-expanding individuality shaped by our Father’s spirit. In this the beauty and wonderment of our individuality is actualized.

In this individuality, his spirit, in harmony with ours, pushes beyond our flesh veil crafted by our mortal mind and in doing so dissolves all fear/lack/separation that hinders his outward expansion in love. Thus, we experience expansive growth. This pushing out of our mortal mind cave through our unity with our Father’s spirit manifests our resurrection.

The Stone Rolled Away

This stone represents a lie that created a spirit of anger, which is a spirit of separation.

This spirit of anger encases our soul at its core and disables its growth toward true life. Anger’s manifestation takes on many faces. Though it’s likeness is often hidden under other emotions of separation, it’s seen everywhere in people’s actions once it’s revealed to our soul perceptions. It’s a seed of separation in our soul, for anger separates souls.

This layer of anger formed from our soul coming forth into this reality through a mortal birth, which lacked divine love. Without divine love, we lacked love and in that lack of care for our soul, anger was experienced. (visualized in screaming babies) The lie born from this experience in our young minds was love involves harm, for we knew no other love than what we received. Which created the question in our developing soul, why wasn’t I loved rightly? Which led to a whole host of ill judgments about who we were; unvalued, unworthy, unlovable, etc. It’s a lie that resides at the origin of our beginnings, thus hidden deep beneath our soul experiences and expressions. This lie was formed when we weren’t loved perfectly as a newly incarnated soul, which perfect love is impossible without divine love that comes from a oneness with our true Father. This defense of anger attracted and manifested other similar experiences and emotions, which grew to become our mortal mind; our prison, our grave. So our tomb is the ill constructs of our mortal mind, the doorway out of the tomb is covered by the stone of this lie and the heaviness of the stone is the anger. Once the lie and corresponding anger are removed, we are freed from the prison of our mind. However, this stone in its heaviness is beyond our mortal strength to remove.

Our second birth of our heavenly Father, who is divine love, brings us into birth and maturity without this enclosure of anger around our soul. He loves us perfectly. Therefore, no lie and no resulting anger arises from the pain of lack of love. Thus, our soul is only encased in love, which creates a new spirit mind of freedom and growth.

This lie is why souls attribute harm, wrath, anger and the like to our heavenly Father. They are projecting onto him the state of their soul condition, as people do. They do this until they learn and experience his divine and perfect love, which is very different from a natural love. Natural love has its own beauty and purpose, but also it’s very prone to weakness and error. And natural love can’t manifest an immortal soul of immortal harmony, only divine love. So, as his liquid light, which is his divine love of substance and no longer a love only known through faith, fills us as it enters through our point of origin, we experience a new birth, a new awakening. One important note: his love finds entrance as we learn to honor our soul, because his love can’t abide where honor does not for his spirit flows only where honor is given. But again, we can’t honor perfectly without his full governance, so the honor from our soul comes as an active and sincere intention, for we can’t honor perfectly without him, for true honor is wrapped up in divine love.

Truth creates the perfected active intention in us. This is the work of the spirit of truth. From this awareness our lives do change noticeability, but they can’t change unto perfection. Not until we are one with his governing spirit that makes perfection possible.

As his spirit finds entrance into our soul as our soul has learned to honor his, his essence pushes this stone of anger out of the way through forgiveness, love and truth. Though it may seem simple, it’s impossible for us to move this stone in our human strength. (as represented in the tomb of Jesus Christ) The lie and it’s origin go too deep and have manifested a mortal mind of bondage that we ourselves can’t escape from.

Yet, as his shining light from the entrance of his spirit into an oneness with ours flows into our soul, it removes this deeply engrained lie that love causes harm, because we experience his perfect love. As this lie dissolves, it dispels the anger and our souls are set-free. Our true individualized soul of our new spirit mind, which has been transforming within the stone grave, arises as a transformed soul reflecting the light and likeness of our true Father. It’s his love that is perfect toward us and we now abide in that love. In setting us free, our mortal mind is dissolved and our spirit mind crafted by him shines forth in beautiful soul expressions.

In this, our will is absorbed into his and we are truly free, for all we think, desire, imagine and do all flows from our true point of origin, our eternal Father, in his perfect love, now at one with our love.

May we open our inner most souls to our true Father and his perfect love for us that he may shine forth in our souls this Father’s Day.

Confined in the Unreal

Confined in the Unreal

 

Space

I’ve mentioned before that this reality of our earth existence is like being in a womb. The overlays between a physical womb and spiritual womb are deeply intertwined, as the physical is a shadow of the spiritual to serve for instructional purposes. And there is much to learn from this particular analogy.

In a physical womb, the child is enveloped in flesh, which enables her to grow, but it also is a barrier from being face-to-face with her parent. We too are enveloped in a flesh covering that is serving to develop our soul individuality, and like the child we are “separated” from our heavenly Father, though he is all around us. Thus, as the child has never “met” the parent, we too experience a “disconnect”.

Because of this separation, our Father and we are both confined in the unreal. We are in this temporary dark reality and our heavenly Father is outside of these dark waters in the light. Thus, while in the womb we are confined in the unreal (detachment from our Father), but our Father is also confined in the unreal because in this state he remains in a sense unreal to us. Thus, why there are so many images of him that exist. He exists in a reality different than our own, and he can’t embrace us as he so desperately longs to. He can’t until we are full grown and come to birth. Thus, we are both trapped in the unreal unable to fully embrace one another in a way that creates an everlasting unchanging oneness.

To find this oneness, we need to be full grown so we can exist outside the womb.

Some souls have desirously and diligently sought for his true presence as their souls have been awoken to his love. They’ve become aware of the true heavenly Father and his love for them. This is the fertilization of their soul by his love. His love awakens us out of our dormant state as a mere egg in this womb. This awakening is the beginning of our embryonic growth, and what lies ahead is the much-needed development of our soul so we can grow into a creation that can abide in harmony in the reality outside of the womb. An embryo can’t survive outside the womb. It must grow to come to full maturity before it is ready. Likewise, we must become developed in our soul, so we can come forth, as a soul able to reflect our Father.

In this diligent seeking, these souls have learned and matured to “sense” his true essence beyond the womb. In this understanding and connection to the outside, they grow and mature in and by his love, which comes through his truths, as souls preparing to reflect the divinity of their Father. Others are so disconnected in the womb state that they doubt there is a parent at all. They remain a seed unfertilized by his true divine love. Then there are the many souls in-between these two states.

In this separation, we don’t “see” our heavenly Father, we only “see” him by faith. True faith is first knowing of the true Father, then believing that though we don’t see him, we know he is there and his love is endless and perfect for us. It’s learning to live a life established on the reality outside of the womb, a reality only those outside can teach us. Thus, the importance of constant soul communion with our Father and his Christ, who teaches us and helps us grow to come forth in a new birth. In this understanding, we spiritually mature, so that our faith becomes established in his ways, attributes and love to an extent that we sense him as if he is with us, but it’s only the strength of our faith that we are experiencing. But it’s that strength of faith that brings us forth into a new birth of our soul.

In our faith, we continue to grope in the darkness only seeing by our faith. This is why as our faith develops it sometimes waxes and wanes. With it we battle the fears of not knowing, uncertainty and perceived distance from our Father.

However, with our birth into the real, faith ceases and in its place is a deep knowing, thus rest and eternal peace. Faith is only required when there is a separation from our Father. Though it is essential to our soul development … when the time comes, it fades away and a knowing takes its place and our love becomes full and ever expanding into eternity. Instead of seeking to find an oneness with our Father, we gain that oneness with his divinity, and we no longer seek but become. We become his child bearing his reflection, thus we simply be.

In our birth, we are partakers of the divine essence of the Father, thus reflect his nature in our outward soul expression while maintaining our individuality. The key reflector of our new birth is the full reception and giving of the divine love of the Father. This is our shining attribute that with it carries divine intellect. Our hopes fade as they are fulfilled, and now there is growth in the light and by the light, no longer by stumbling through the darkness where we learn by error. When we can’t see we grow through our errors, learning what is and what is not. But in the light we simply grow. Our soul essence finds an oneness with the Father, as a baby born is placed in her Father’s arms, face-to-face.

But until our new birth of a divine soul, we are confined to this reality and our Father is confined to outside of this reality. This is why we seek to be a developing soul who has the strength of faith to come to birth. Without soul development that prepares us to be a new creation of divinity, and without the faith that enables us to grow and push out of the womb, we don’t come to birth. But with the two, we become identifiable children of our heavenly Father.

Living Faith Produces Living Light

Living Faith Produces Living Light

Space

Two changes in our soul start us on the journey to obtaining divine love. One is a genuine desire to perfectly love all creation, and the other is to realize we can’t on our own, but only by obtaining an oneness with our heavenly Father. This desire and realization move us out of a perfecting natural love and into the love of divinity. It’s the difference of abiding in the light and being of the light.

These changes set us on the journey of the new birth of our soul, a soul containing the substance of divinity. A living faith is the strength of our soul that brings forth this new soul.

Living Faith

Living faith is developed out of this driving desire for divine love that creates a soul substance of divinity. Living faith is our soul perception of our reality when it’s established on absolute truth and divine love that supersedes all other perceptions. It’s a faith that continually shapes our soul in divine love/truth until we find harmony, and thus an oneness, with the soul of our Father. When we have this living faith, we experience a sincere care that is ever deepening for all of creation that we never had before. Its realness creates a complete change of perception of the world around us, thus our lives become a thriving reality in which his love can ever expand and grow.

This change into a growing divine love within us is our greatest testimony of a true and living faith. It causes us to come alive in our soul, in a way we never experienced before for it’s of eternal life. It alters our lifestyle, choices, thoughts, behaviors and actions into the real and everlasting. It’s an active and substantial faith as it’s established within us by receiving intimate instruction from our Father and his beloved son. Their intimate instruction recreates our soul and makes us fit to find an oneness and eternal unity with divinity.

Living faith is to live, and thus have a life established on the truth and love of our Father and his son Jesus Christ, the one most filled with divine love and truth as it is ever expanding within him. This living faith isn’t established on or by religious dogma, ceremonies, or instruction, though many start from this place. It’s established on the intimate counsel and teaching between our Christ, our heavenly Father, and us. Together they move us out of the symbols and images of truth/love and into the real. This is a living faith as it is always grows out of the substance of true life, truth and the way into a unity with divinity.

As our heavenly Father impresses his character and nature upon our soul, especially his love, and as Christ Jesus teaches us and instructs us as the perfect older brother who has “been there and done that”, our souls are reworked and reshaped to the substance of divinity, no more a mere image of what is to be. Christ knows the way out of the blindness of the soul; the way to create and establish a living faith that brings in the living light, new birth.

The blindness is an internal blindness of the soul. This blindness is of our soul/mental perception when we are disconnected from our heavenly Father. In this disconnect from the all-knowing source, it’s a perception that only knows its own mind and nothing else, thus very limited and very easily falls into error. It’s a darkness covering our internal perceptions that affect our understanding of what we do see. As we follow his lead, he guides us out of the blindness of the soul, which is like a vast wilderness, where our limited soul perceptions give us only misleading counsel, and to an oasis of the real and eternal perfect reality that is crafted by the divine love of our Father.

Divine instructions lead to life; all else leads to wandering in circular paths. Only this counsel gives us true sight in a soul of blindness.

This soul development and corresponding lifestyle transformation that follows establishes our soul on an unshakable foundation. This rock of living faith carries us through the birth pangs into our new soul birth. These birth pangs are the testing and revealing of our faith. As our faith remains firm through the storms of our circumstances and soul (birth pangs), it’s found strong and sufficient to bring forth our new soul. When the storms pass and we are still standing, out flow from our soul the living light of perfect wisdom and love manifesting eternal comforts, harmony and peace.

Living Light

Living faith brings forth the living light. This faith “pushes” this living light into our reality. This living light is the perception of our heavenly Father’s all–knowing soul eye residing within our soul eye. This unison enables his supreme intellect/wisdom/love, which act as one, to flow through us and into our reality. This outflow radiates a heavenly divine reflection out of our soul and into the world. We become reflectors of the divinity of our heavenly Father. In it we exude a superior love and intellect beyond a human soul’s capability that reveals us as sons and daughters in harmony with the Most High. This makes us a part of his light.

Until we receive this deep connection to our Father so that his soul eye governs us from the deepest place within our soul, we are blind. Living faith produces a night vision in a soul of blindness until we experience a new birth of our soul and thus become a part of the living light. Until we have his perspective as our own, we have a degree of blindness. Everyone is somewhere along the continuum of blindness. Where we are on this continuum depends upon the amount of divine truth and love that we understand and live by.

Only by being united to our Father through his love influencing our soul and the instruction of Jesus Christ do we come into the living light, the new birth. In this unity nothing is left in us that is contradictory to his soul, thus we are rightly united to him and find our oneness with him.

This transformation starts now, today. Not some future point or after death. Any day can be the beginning of our transformation into a new soul.

Metamorphosis of the Spirit

Metamorphosis of the Spirit

Space

Monarch with caterpillar

Our spiritual transformation is a metamorphosis from one creation to another.  From a dead spiritual entity, which continually feeds on death, which perpetuates death, to a living spiritual entity that continually drinks in the sweet nectar of life and reflects the beauty of the Creator’s character.

Our merciful God created this earth to instruct us in His ways.  A beautiful illustration of our transformation is found in the journey of a caterpillar into a butterfly.

As a caterpillar has to die to its current form to transform into a butterfly, we too have to die to our flesh form to be transformed into a spirit creation; a creation reflective of the Creator’s likeness and of the spirit (air).

Stage One: The Seed/Egg

There is a seed of life in each of us. It’s the seed of eternity (Ecc 3:11), and the seed that holds the DNA of our Creator. With the right conditions, the seed within grows and we transform into entities reflecting our Father’s likeness, His character.  A seed looks nothing like the living creation it becomes; yet it contains the source code that is needed to become a living creation.

What are the conditions of spiritual change; the secrets of spiritual metamorphosis?

Stage Two: Feasting on the Green Tree/Eat and Eat

The main activity of the caterpillar is to eat … and eat. It’s required for them to grow to transform. Likewise, our main job is to eat to grow. We are to feast constantly on the Tree of Life, Christ spoken word to us from within our souls. This nourishment isn’t doctrines of religion, but the pure word of the spirit of God spoken directly to our spirit by the spirit interpreter, the Holy Spirit.

Worm that Doesn’t Die

As we begin to feast on the words of life, we cease to feast on death (lies, corruption, deception, false doctrines, wisdom of the world) little by little. These words are the pure words of truth, which comes from a pure conscience within us (Christ the Internal Teacher), spoken to our spirits and received in understanding. We need only to feast on these words of life to transform, but we must feast and feast continually.

If we continue to feast on death, we are the worm that doesn’t die, thus doesn’t change.

“where ‘Their worm does not die, And the fire is not quenched.’ Mark 9:44

Do you know what this worm that doesn’t die feeds on? Dead bodies, death. (found in the definition of worm in the Strong’s concordance)

Through false doctrines, many people have been misled that this life is neutral ground, not heaven and not hell. It’s our own spiritual deadness that makes our reality hell. Hell continues as our reality as along as we feed on death. In feeding on death, we are the worms that do not die and transform into new creations.

At this stage, our purpose in life is to feast on the truth, the bread of heaven, so we can transform from our worm state and leave Sheol.

Stage Three: Inner transformation/Chrysalis

After feasting for some time on the green plant, the Tree of life (Christ), we start a deep internal conversion. When His words of life become our internal truth, it starts to change everything, beginning with our heart from stone to flesh. We mature to a certain point by His truths that we die (abandon and put off) to all that isn’t of the truth.

This is a time in our lives where we experience intense positive change within our souls. At our core, our character starts to take on Christ’s likeness. Once this occurs a flood of transformations begin. We start thinking, speaking and acting differently. Loving kindness, healing, and deliverance from entrapments of our flesh manifest. It’s a tremendous stage of spiritual growth that affects every dynamic of our lives.  And like being in a cocoon, we become separated from the world. Often we are cut off from many worldly things, people and activities so that our growth can take place unhindered.

Stage Four: New Creations/Butterfly

Once we come to a certain level of spiritual maturity, our flesh skins start to break away. As the caterpillar sheds its skins, we shed the skins of death/affliction/ bitterness, and what comes forth is something altogether different and beautiful. This stage comes with a great “earthquake” to our lives. As our old skins, which are of the dust of the earth start quaking, splitting open and breaking away, all that we have known starts to change as we become a creation of the air and no longer of the dust. The wind, the breath of God, starts to fill our new wings, spiritual mind, and we embark upon a new life as creations of the spirit/air. Everything is growing out of a point of perfection, His spirit within us; truly a new beginning and a new life of life.

Our appearance becomes a reflection of God’s glory/character. A butterfly’s wings don’t hold the pigment of their brilliant colors, but they have a reflective quality that reflects the light in such a way that it creates their magnificent brilliance. So too, we are mirrors to our Father’s brilliance. When we transform spiritually, our mortal bodies are clothed with new skins of eternity, thus bearing the likeness of Christ, who is the reflection of the heavenly Father.

This glorious transformation occurs in the end at the return of Christ, which is the brilliance of God abiding within mankind. What lies ahead, I do not know as no one has gone through this full metamorphosis in the earth, as it is only possible upon Christ’s return. It is through the fullness of His spirit within us that we become living eternal creations. No mind has conceived what He has in store for those who love Him.

Our eyes are starting to twinkle with the brilliance of His reflection.

Take a moment when you have time to look into a butterfly’s journey. You will find many overlaps to our spiritual journey.

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

The Tree of Life

The Tree of Life;

Baptized by the Holy Spirit and Fire

Those prepared by the Holy Spirit and fire will be able to partake of the Tree of Life; the Tree that brings eternal life. Matthew 3:11

Genesis 3:22-24 Then the LORD God said, “Behold, the man has become like one of Us, to know good and evil. And now, lest he put out his hand and take also of the tree of life, and eat, and live forever”– therefore the LORD God sent him out of the garden of Eden to till the ground from which he was taken. So He drove out the man; and He placed cherubim at the east of the garden of Eden, and a flaming sword which turned every way, to guard the way to the tree of life.

Hebrews 12:4 For the word of God is living and powerful, and sharper than any two-edged sword, piercing even to the division of soul and spirit, and of joints and marrow, and is a discerner of the thoughts and intents of the heart.

Hebrews 12:29 For our God is a consuming fire.

The Tree of Life is guarded by a flaming sword. The Tree is the spirit of eternal life, and the flaming sword, the Word of God. We must traverse through and with the Word of God and become One with the Word to transition into eternal life. Revelation 19:13, Galatians 2:20, John 6:45

A New Mind

The spirit of eternal life was cut off from Adam and Eve when they dismissed the commandment of God, thus they would die. The moment they chose to go contrary to the will of God, the disease of sin entered their mind. Like a cancer it took over their mind, transgression became a part of mankind, and a world of death was created. As is your mind, so you create. This is the problem that has plagued our world.

Adam and Eve revealed to us that mankind could and would stray from the realm of God’s will. They had abundant freedom, yet in their lust to be wise of themselves they chose to ignore God’s instruction. In love, the Father would destroy the mind of corruption by destroying their desire to chose their own way and give them a desire for a new mind, in which they would never stray. Walking in the shadow of death taught them and all those who would come through them what a mind contrary to God manifests. Thus, a desire for His mind is created.

The new mind they would receive would not only be able to connect with the Father, but also be a part of Him. In being a part of His mind; they would never go contrary to it. But they and all those born from them would have to choose to have His mind; for love chooses to love.

Through Christ, the Word, the door, the way and the bread of life, a new mind is established in us. He is our grace, power and Teacher to create in us this new mind; one surrendered fully to the will of God and operating by His wisdom alone; a lesson we all have to learn from our lives so that in truth we can chose His mind. Matthew 23:8

The Eternal Spirit

Now as the end of this age draws to a close and a new one begins; the minds prepared by the Spirit of truth, by feasting on truth, will be united with the life-giving spirit; the Tree of Life.

For those who diligently seek, who aren’t to busy with the cares of the world to be with the Teacher, they will partake of the Tree of Life. Matthew 22 They are clothed by the Holy Spirit, the living waters, with truth. They see the death they create by their corrupted minds and give it ALL up to have a new mind, the mind of Christ; demonstrated by the obedience they possess that springs out of love. Matthew 16:25 They understand what they are giving up and what they are gaining. They hunger and thirst for righteousness; now more than ever as the life-giving spirit draws close. These are the peacemakers; the sons of God to be revealed. Matthew 5:6,9, Romans 8:14-19

These who have the oil of truth, the living waters, are on their journey to meet with the Bridegroom as their souls are being knit to His, and thus to eat of the Tree of Life.

They have passed through the refining fire. Even now it smolders burning the residue of the fallen flesh they have forsaken for garments of immortality. They have bought and sold, not with the world, but with Christ Himself, the true Teacher of Righteousness. Revelation 3:18 They sought for the One, the Spirit beyond all images and words, and found a love so pure. John 5:39-40 They’ve been chiseled, crafted, shaped, pruned and suffered in the flesh as it burned away. John 15:2, 1 Peter 4:1

They are moving ever closer to the union they seek with the One they’ve come to know and love. They hear His voice. They follow His lead. His words and faith have been sown into their souls. They know without the union of oneness with their Lord, they are nothing and can do nothing. They have been marked by their Father; sealed by His Spirit. They know the Father and the Father knows them for their relationship and life are their testimony. John 17:3

As they come to feast and dine with Christ, they will start to bloom and reveal the magnificent glory of Christ. They will shine His peace, radiant His love, honor, loving-kindness, abide in His Sabbath rest, and expand their territory. They will become fields of wheat … protected in the true sanctuary of their Father in whom they trust.

All those who desire to come to eternal life must pass through the fire, the flaming sword of truth that destroys all that is not of the purest love.

Mark 9:49 For everyone will be seasoned with fire, and every sacrifice will be seasoned with salt.

Revelation 1:16 He had in His right hand seven stars, out of His mouth went a sharp two-edged sword, and His countenance was like the sun shining in its strength.

Revelation 2:16 Repent, or else I will come to you quickly and will fight against them with the sword of My mouth.

Revelation 19:15 Now out of His mouth goes a sharp sword, that with it He should strike the nations. And He Himself will rule them with a rod of iron. He Himself treads the winepress of the fierceness and wrath of Almighty God.

2 Thessalonians 1:7-8 and to give  you who are troubled rest with us when the Lord Jesus is revealed from heaven with His mighty angels, in flaming fire taking vengeance on those who do not know God, and on those who do not obey the gospel of our Lord Jesus Christ.
