Divine Love’s Causality

Divine Love’s Causality:

The Breath of Life

 

Space

The harmonizing of our soul condition and life choices to divine love testify to its presence within us. In this, we come to understand, thus abide in divine love’s causality.

Our entire existence is defined in cause and effect relationships. Our disharmony, (pain, suffering, fear, lack, etc) is caused by harmful causes, ones that are counter to the workings of perfect love. Divine love creates perfect causes in our lives that lead to perfect effects, which in turn creates more perfect causes. This is how this supreme love creates immortal harmony.

When we begin to transform by divine love, which begins with a drop of this liquid light, our causes start to be governed by divine love. This creates the sequence I described above. It takes ownership of our causes, our inner-most desires and longings, and works out the perfect effect from a myriad of probabilities. Something we could never do on our own. In this, we no longer abide in error; the effects of ill causes. Instead we experience growth and expansion. Through this process our heavenly Father shapes our reality, making it a reality without corruption, thus one he can abide in and move through. Eventually, our soul is consumed with his love, so that our lives are totally shaped by divine love’s causality. His breath of life becomes our breath.

In obtaining this divine love, we are a part of our perfect Father. To prepare us for this sacred union, the initial inflow of this divine love prepares us by sowing our souls in attributes reflective of our heavenly Father. This preparation shapes our lives in purity, thus pushing out corruption from our realities. In this he is preparing his home within our soul, a home sown in honor, and all his beautiful characteristics. This translates into a deep purging and purifying of our soul and every effect that flows from our souls.

Of our own strength and ability, we know we can’t love perfectly as our universal Father does in his divine love. Yet, we can love perfectly in the finiteness of our present moments when this divine love finds fluidity within our soul. It finds its home in our soul through our sincere longing and desire for it, a desire for our spiritual parent’s divine love to govern every breath. This union follows a submission of our self-will (or our self-determination) to the all-consuming will of our Father, which his divine love gently leads us into. Throughout this process, we experience the very nature of this love, as we experience how this love tenderly unites to our soul. In this we experience how very precious we are to him.

Divine love never changes though it’s uniquely expressed through our individual personalities. In its immutability, we are the ones who are changed so that we can experience it and know its nature, thus know an individual intimacy with our eternal perfect Father.

Living divine love is like breathing. We do it without conscious awareness, though at times we are conscious of its fluidity through our lives and into the lives of others. As we expand from our soul outward in this love, we realize it doesn’t succumb to our expectations. It doesn’t conform to our limited thoughts, but it’s formed by what is perfect for us and others. This love is shaped by the thoughts of our loving Creator, thus by thoughts that are far beyond our thoughts. Therefore, it flows in perfect yet unpredictable ways in our lives and in the lives of others. This is how it exposes the absolute/divine truths to us. In the contrast occurring within us, before and after the presence of this love in our souls, we see the truths it moves by. It takes us on paths we never would have journeyed, into relationships we would have passed by, and into places in our soul we never knew existed. Thus for it to flow in and through our lives, we must be comfortable and accept its unique workings. Therefore, we don’t control its expression in what we “should do” or “shouldn’t do”. This love doesn’t respond in “should-do” (obligatory love), but only in a desire to love another. It doesn’t do what it doesn’t want to (hypocrisy); it only acts from a desire to love another. As we abide in a sincere care for others that this love gives us, the love governs the expressions of that care through our unique personalities.

In this union of trust, our soul is knit to our Father’s soul in an ever-expanding unity. Divine love continues to expand in its forms of expressions through us so that it consumes every aspect of our being. It’s the breath of life, for love is the creative energy of harmony, which is the progenitor of continuance of life of an eternal being.

In this progression of divine love transforming our souls, it creates a new reality around us, a reality without corruption. It’s a reality that is always increasing in beauty, peace, and rest for our souls.

Our perfect spiritual Father is right here with us, in this present moment, the eternal present. Selah. In the present, we cross the barriers of the time and space continuum, and we encounter his living reality as our own, and no longer an alternate reality crafted by our minds. As his love grows, it expands our capacity to abide in this present moment by eradicating all fear. Fear or perceptions of lack in our present moments takes us out of the present moment and puts us in an unreality of past memories and future expectations. Overtime, as we continue to grow in this love and all fear is expelled, we abide ever more in his presence in the present until an immortal harmony is formed between our soul and his in the eternal present.

Jesus Christ’s faith brought into our finite mortal awareness this divine love. He lived the truth of this divine love, and made it a reality for all in this earth-life existence and beyond. In his faith, he acted upon the spiritual truths that enabled us to know and receive this divine love. He opened our eyes and souls to this potential of living in divine love now. In this awareness and gift of potentiality, our transformation begins from an unreality of separation into the reality of divine love, the living reality of our universal perfect heavenly loving Father.

Extending our Souls to Love

Extending our Souls to Love

space

Each moment brings us to a place of choice. Our lives are constantly exposed to choices; some significant and some seemingly insignificant, which in totality create our lives at this present moment. Though as I’ve learned, there are no insignificant choices. The smallest ones lead to impactful outcomes.

Choice is a freedom we’ve been given. But it’s a freedom that can lead to bondage or more freedom. Choice is what gives shape and expression to our individuality. But our choices can suppress or enhance our individuality. Our response to life’s circumstances is always a matter of choice. Choice is a big deal, and thus may we all “choose wisely”.

The Choice for Divine Love

The choice above all choices presented to us that in turn impacts every other choice, is the choice to be partakers of the divine love of our heavenly Father. It’s a choice because love is voluntary. This choice progresses our soul development to find an oneness with our heavenly Father.

Though significant, this choice is only the beginning of many more, which in their connectivity continually manifest the beauties of divine love in our lives.

Divine love is established on immutable truths. Thus to come into our Father’s love, we will be presented with these truths and whether we will embrace them or not. We are mutable and our heavenly Father, his love, and truth are not. We are the ones that choose to come into harmony with him, and not him with us. His essence is harmony. It seems self-evident when spoken, but we all have lived as if our Father’s love, thus truth, morphs to our ways and the “truths” we live by. In regards to our heavenly Father, there is only one direction of change, our lives toward his divine love. If we embrace his truths by acting in living faith until they are our truths, then we experience an ever-increasing awareness and genuineness of his divine love in our lives.

Knowing that divine love is the creative force of harmony, when we experience disharmony, in whatever form, it’s a moment for self-examination to the cause of the disharmony, so it may be replaced with what creates harmony. In this contrast of what causes harmony and disharmony, we begin to learn of the spiritual laws of our Father. Every “law” serves love. It’s in the contrast of understanding what is of harmony and what isn’t that teaches us to choose what is of harmony, thus the truths of our Father, until we find an immortal harmony with him.

Accepting Divine Love

As we progress along our faith journey into divine love, one of our biggest acts of faith is accepting HOW our heavenly Father’s loving-kindness works in our individual daily lives. It’s the acceptance of his timing and timeline for our lives, his manner of working and moving in and through our lives, and the outcomes along the way that occur as a result of his divine love at work in our lives. When we choose to find an acceptance, thus harmony, with the workings of his love in our lives, then we find a peace in our souls that transcends a mere mortal understanding for we are flowing with the perfect workings of our Father. And the end results of his workings are freedom, peace, love, beauty, harmony, joy, contentment, and every glorious expression of life we desire to dwell in.

Our heavenly Father’s love for us knows no end, thus he never “gives up on us” for that is contrary to the very nature of divine love. And, we aren’t ones who are ever “looked over” for our insignificance at any time, for that mindset doesn’t exist in his divine love, for we are greatly valued by him. This love isn’t something we have to gain or earn, but something we simply have to realize has always been with us desiring us to draw near. For love to be made manifest in an individual’s life it has to be given and received. Thus, two souls both have to extend their soul to the other. If love isn’t extending from both, then the unifying nature of love isn’t established and the harmony that grows out of that unity isn’t manifested. Our Father’s love is always outstretched to us. May we extend our soul in love back to him by choosing to come into harmony with his truth and love. May we trust in his bountiful grace to create this fulfillment as it carries us through every weakness.

Learning of and accepting the Father’s love for us sounds simple, but with the myriad of lies that we hold as truth this depth of awareness of his divine love is initially unknown to us, and therefore acceptance isn’t possible. We can only accept and respond to what we know. Thus, what is required is our own individual journey of faith. It’s a journey of seeking divine truth and/or divine love, walking by what we learn in faith until those truths become a part of our soul substance. Along this journey, no matter where we start from, his guiding hand leads us out of the blindness of our own mind and into an ever-growing awareness, thus reality, of the perfection of his love.

There is no separation in divine love. We only have a perception of separation because of our lack of awareness. But, as we seek and learn truth and love in our lives, we will encounter this immutable truth of divine love. Understanding this love on a personal soul level is what enables an acceptance of this love. And in that acceptance we are completely transformed by it from the inside out.

Our heavenly Father is always influencing us to a full acceptance of his love for then the circle of unity is completed; we receive his love and in that love he receives our love. It’s an inseparable bond that causes us to be an immortal being.

As I mentioned, a significant part of accepting this love is letting go of our expectations about how our lives are taking shape, and learning to trust our Father with our expectations. This trust takes time to develop. Yet, it’s in this deep letting go and therefore deep active trust that we find undeniable peace, a deep soul development, and increasing awareness thus expansion of divine love in our lives. Giving our trust into our perfect loving Father’s hands is the most glorious freeing experience we can know in this earth life. In this trust, we release our limited perspectives of our situations and trust the perfect working of our Father’s loving kindness, a love that works in ways we would never have thought of or considered. In this we choose to embrace his love, the truth, and reality that he IS working perfectly in our lives.

This understanding totally change how we view our circumstances, situations, encounters, relationships, and self-progression because we see all moving along his path, at his timing and in his ways, not “our” path. He is moving us in ways that are perfect for our soul development, thus a growing harmony and oneness with himself.

Our experience of divine love is our personal witness that we have found the truth, for divine love testifies to its truth. Once we’ve experienced this divine love by coming into accordance with it, then our search is over for truth, for all truth flows out of this love. What follows is a continual exploration of going deeper into truth, thus love, in the realm of our heavenly Father.

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.

Abundance, Not Lack

Abundance, Not Lack

Space

In divine love there is only abundance; an abundance for every good work. When our heavenly Father leads us, then everything in our reality is used for good, for he is making it good. Thus, lack doesn’t exist.

The eye of the soul is the hub of all our perceptions. Sight is far more than what our physical eyes perceive. It’s the interworking relationship of our physical eyes and the eye of our soul. Our eyes see what our soul eye perceives. If that eye is full of divine love/truth, we perceive in abundance thus create abundance. If it’s unaware of this love/truth, we perceive in lack thus create lack.

Lack is like a speck of dust upon the eye of our soul that’s removed in the faith of our Father’s perfect love for us. Though a speck, it taints our entire panoramic perception of what we see with our physical eyes, because of its location. Since the soul’s eye is the seat of all our perceptions, if it’s tarnished then all we perceive is tainted.

Lack is an illusion. It’s a state of our soul perception when our consciousness is disconnected from divine love. Lack is made real by the human will acting upon it. Seeking to fill this ill perceived lack puts us on a different trajectory of thoughts and actions than if we never perceived the lack in the first place. This creates the reality of the lack we see.

Lack was born out of the instruction of our Father to do one thing and not another. In the absence of awareness of the perfection of divine love, this instruction birthed the thought of lack. But the instruction was given to protect us from lack. But in disbelief, our human will chose to go through the forbidden door, and in that choice the reality of lack was manifested. In determining what was good for us, we created lives of lack.

As a result, humankind made what was unreal real. Because lack feeds the powerful energy of fear, it easily spreads and propagates. When we experience lack, we are compelled to fill the emptiness it creates. It isn’t a state that we are meant to be in, so we are driven to fill the hole. Without divine truth, this belief created the lives we have lived. But now is time for a change. We are the creators of our perceived reality, a reality determined by the vision of the eye of our soul.

When we grow in the awareness of divine love, we learn that in it we lack nothing. Lack doesn’t exist in divine love. Our heavenly Father’s love stretches across the universe travelling into the smallest particle and into the deepest parts of our soul. But because our Father is without form and his love is to be desired in its fullness by us for us to fully experience it, we have felt lack. In this illusionary state, we made what was unreal real. Of course, our heavenly Father in his perfect love for us is using even our perceptions of lack for our good. In the contrast, we are learning that his divine love/truth protects us from any type of deficiency. In this awareness, we, in our free will, choose to be fully governed by divine love/truth, the soul eye of God, and nothing else.

I’ve mentioned that in the core of our soul is the lie that we are rejected, unloved, insignificant, unworthy, unvalued, etc. Underneath that lie is where this false belief in lack resides. It’s the singular belief that alters our entire outlook. Being at the center of our soul’s eye, it peppers our perception with a myriad of lies. When we look deep into this lie we see death; for death is a lack of life. When this lie is defeated all that stems from it is also overcome. It resides in our soul in the place where the love of our Father finds entrance and emanates. Thus, when this speck is removed then all is perceived through divine love. Lack is only our relative truth that is dissolving away, as his love takes center stage and shines brightly in our soul’s eye.

When we love our heavenly Father, we follow where he leads because we desire to abide in him and in his love. He faithfully guides us with his soul eye. Thus, we give up our soul’s eye and the reflection it casts upon our physical perceptions, and we become governed by his soul eye. He leads us up an upward winding staircase of soul development. As a result, our life becomes established on his absolute truths. On this journey, everything in our life is being used for good. As our lives are knit to his, they start taking on an abundance for everything is being used for our upward progression. In this forward movement, we start seeing a reflection of abundance upon our personal widescreen. Abundance is what his love, which encapsulates his wisdom creates as it flows through us.

Because we are moving from a perspective of lack that has created actual lack, this transition requires an initial faith in the abundance of what we’ve learned from our heavenly Father, and not in what we see.  As our soul starts gaining the substance of divine love and truth, then our faith is developed to a degree that enables us to trust in that substance more than what our physical eyes see. At that time, our vision comes from our soul perception of divine love permeating out of the soul eye of God, instead of the lack we physically see. This new vision enables us to make different choices and decisions that start creating abundance in our lives instead of continuing lack. By acting in faith on the divine love/truth instead of the lack, our reality is transformed to be one of actual incorruptible abundance.

Come Up Here: A Self-Perfecting Mind

Come Up Here: A Self-Perfecting Mind

Space

The earth is knocking on the doors of a universal shift. This shift takes us from one age into the next by the awakening of the human mind to a higher level of consciousness or awareness. Awareness is understanding. The awareness is heightened as souls are drawn into the vortex of the Creator’s loving presence. This “drawing in” is a choice for each soul, which arouses from a living faith. Faith is choosing to act on particular beliefs because we trust they will lead to our desires, which when in truth is living. A choice based on our understanding not our current state (sight).

Awakening to this higher frequency of thought means our perceptions are dramatically altered. We begin to see through the spirits of God. (Rev 4:5)

We are not bystanders in this cosmic event. Instead, we affect the timing of our transforming mind by choosing to posses a self-perfecting mind. It’s a mind that prepares and brings us gracefully into the next age. Our mind is a myriad of interworking networks and frameworks determining how we perceive the world and respond, like a collage of algorithms. All our behaviors follow a set of processes and systems determined by how our thoughts are networked together. Our current functions are marred and dysfunctional, thus the need for a renewal. Much like an algorithm that doesn’t produce the right results, our current consciousness doesn’t produce the right results. Therefore, we must choose to have a mind of self-perfecting algorithms. This simply means we choose to grow in goodness, in doing the “right” thing, and in emanating loving kindness to all creation. We choose to love at all times in all situations. If this is our path, our Creator, who has the capability to re-wire our mind, will individually lead us in this endeavor by teaching us through our mistakes thus ever expanding our understanding and awareness, thus self-perfecting.

This governing desire over all our actions opens up our mind to increase in understanding and expand into an abundant reality, for this is the result of acting in truth/love. It’s a mind that allows God’s power to manifest within it because we seek to align to His perfect spirit. Seeking creates upward movement in our thoughts and pulls us out of pre-defined “boxes” of thinking that blind us to a downward path instead of upward. Boxes formed by tradition, religion, culture, societal ways, and convenience. A mind fixed upon seeking truth/love leads the soul out of the “boxes” that keep it from ascending.

In this transforming mind, new perceptions feed new choices that feed further new perceptions. It’s a winding staircase upward.

In the awakening mind, one of the first perceptions to change is how we perceive all living creatures. We start to see them from a perception crafted by a Creator who designed them in perfection. Thus, creations to be loved.

In this understanding, we choose to love them at all times. Souls choose love when they have the faith that if they act in loving ways it will produce good results as well as the fulfillment of their desires.

A fundamental characteristic of love is that is voluntary for the giver and receiver. It isn’t forced upon either, but something that must be willingly given and received. The nature of this tender affection is that it’s gentle, meek, and patient, and in its fullness there is nothing more powerful. (The power comes from Truth, which it is tightly intertwined with. Truth consists of the spiritual laws that create a harmonious interacting reality.) This is why “come up here” is an appropriate description, for we must choose to ascend to this new level of comprehension, for to love is a choice.

This call to “come up here” has been heavy on my soul; to let go of the world systems sown by mindsets counter to love and to arise to a superior level of human existence and experience. This ascension comes by a deeper and more full-body understanding of the characteristics of a reality derived from truth and love. Basically, it’s an increased desire to abide in loving kindness toward all of creation all the time because you see the superiority of it in every way. To abide in love is to abide in the loving Creator’s wisdom. Again a choice is made to traverse a path of this infinite wisdom and leave the limited and self-serving imaginations of mankind behind.

Consider all the ways you act, decide, chose, and respond to life’s situations. Now consider choosing to do all these in a way that is most caring for all involved.  How would that change your choices, reactions, words, and persona?

Because our loving all-knowing Creator creates love and truth as an inseparable unit, the kindness we give is established on understanding. We elect to respond a certain way because we’ve learned it is truly good. As we learn to respond in loving-kindness from our mistakes, our understanding of how to be kind and caring in all sincerity increases. This is possessing a self-perfecting mind, a mind that learns and grows from its mistakes guided by the inner counsel of the Spirit of Truth.

If we seek to abide in increasing love and truth, God will guide us faithfully. To encounter God, who is spirit, is to encounter an intimate instructor in your thoughts, penetrating to your most hidden thoughts, on how to be a creation that gives and receives divine love.

The desire to love rightly to all, in all situations, and all the time propels a mind into a self-perfecting mind. Below are three interwoven fundamentals to the algorithms of an ascending mind:

  1. You choose to do what is kind and caring to all creation at all times in all situations. You aren’t bound by tradition, habits, and convenience. The question always lingers; how would you want to be treated?
  2. You “see” every living creation as significant. You lift none above the other. You honor all equally. There is no self-exalting (pride, arrogance, haughtiness) over another based on gender, race, income, culture, family, heritage, status, vocation, appearance, type of creation (animal, etc), religion, etc. You honor all. Especially the weak the meek who need it most of all.
  3. You love beyond yourself.  An inferior love cares for only what it is affected by, but divine love cares for all, whether one is deemed personally affected or not by that entity. True understanding is realizing we are all effected by what is done to any part of creation. We are all connected. Thus we never treat another poorly even though we “think” we aren’t directly affected.

Love is a choice. For those who make this choice and learn of divine love, they are awakening in their understanding to new realities far superior in every way.

Flying: Faith in Motion

Flying:

Faith in Motion

space

To be a living creature, an eternal spirit being, means the spirit of God within us crafts every moment and every movement. Thus, we live by faith in God alone. Faith is what moves our wings to fly. (my previous posts lay the foundation for this “flying” analogy)

To move, thus fly, in oneness with God, requires a heart fashioned by God. This is the inner work of Christ within our Holy of Holies. This is a heart born out of Truth and Love. Once this heart is fashioned so that we desire to love perfectly, and desire only the ways, wisdom and truths of the Father, then the work of gaining a new mind of spiritual understanding follows. This mind forms by buying and selling the gold refined in fire with Christ; who is the wisdom of God. This is gaining understanding of truth and love regarding the interworking and details of our lives.

Once the heart and mind are established in the truths and love of God, then the faith that holds the power of God is able to go forth from us and into the earth; into our lives and the lives of others. This power going out is how we outwardly reflect God, which is our personality (garments), which is His light reflecting from us. This faith expands until it fills our conscious and unconscious realities.

Faith, the power of God, streaming into the earth begins with a prompting or a desire, to do or say a certain thing. Our words and actions are the channels in which faith moves through. Faith without works is dead because it travels through our works/actions. These promptings come out of the awakened Holy of Holies within us for the heavenly Father speaks to us between the cherubim. (Holy of Holies in You)

Channel of Faith

An example of a channel of faith the heavenly Father has established for faith to flow through in my life, is this blog and my videos. Every time I write or speak, I trust Him that He does it all. I trust He will not only give me the words, but will use them perfectly to each hearer. This faith comes from the circle of trust within the Holy of Holies, and the outer circle of trust that connects the spiritual reality to the physical reality.

Inner Wheel: Circle of Trust with God

I trust the Heavenly Father, and He trusts me because He knows I trust Him. This is the circle of trust created in the Holy of Holies. It’s the inner wheel of the wheels of the living creatures in the book of Ezekiel. Ezekiel 1:21

This circle of trust is built by understanding. It comes from knowing the character of the heavenly Father and how He works.

The heavenly Father governs us from the inside, not the outside. Thus, His reign in our souls comes through understanding. When we understand His character and ways, we trust Him. Trust is the fruit of knowing. And further, we as come to know Him, we desire to be like Him.

In this desire to be like Him, our understanding expands as we obey Christ’s teachings to our spirit. As we follow His teachings, understanding increases because we experience why they are indeed perfect. Obedience to His ways fuels understanding, which fuels our trust in Him, the circle of trust.

When we understand why He wants us to do certain things and not others, we WANT to do them. Understanding creates desire. To live by desire is freedom, joy, rest, and abundance. Therefore, in His love for us, He leads by promptings, understanding and wisdom. This brings us to the outer wheel.

Outer Wheel: Circle of Trust to Outside

Once a circle of trust is established within us. Then God can create a medium for His spirit, power and work to flow into the earth. The dynamic of trust circulating from within and interacting upon the earth creates the outer wheel, just as the outer part of the wheel of a car has contact with the road. This wheel is the dynamic of God’s power moving from the inner wheel and interacting with the physical realm. Thus, this wheel turns by our faith.

Back to my example, this blog/video is a venue in which God’s power/spirit connects to the earth.  It is a medium that my faith in God flows through. Because I write and speak in faith, it infuses God’s power into it. It’s a physical connection to others, which possesses a faith in God, thus it’s the outer wheel by which His spirit moves upon the earth.

The faith or power of God creates results that are far beyond our own abilities, which is a testimony to His work and power. But there is more …

My husband, my confidant in every spiritual understanding, infuses his faith into this wheel as well. He trusts God to govern what I say and to use it as He wills. The faith my husband puts in God in my output enhances the overall faith, thus power, poured into this work. His faith is like a booster shot to my faith. I have trust in my husband’s faith for I know the source; his heart crafted by God, which I see continually. This dynamic of another’s faith complementing ours so that it strengthens ours making it more “full body” is what Paul meant when he said,  “I now rejoice in my sufferings for you, and fill up in my flesh what is lacking in the afflictions of Christ, for the sake of His body, which is the church,” Colossians 1:24 Through his faith, my husband lays his hands (will) upon me in these “works” and the combination of our faith is far more powerful than mine alone. 1 Timothy 4:14

When every aspect of our lives reflects the inner/outer wheel dynamic, so that we don’t move unless we are moved by God’s spirit, we are eternal spirit creations.

One important checkpoint, when there is a channel for faith to flow through, our perspective of this outgoing power/faith through us is humility. When God’s spirit, thus power, is flowing through us, what we feel is humility. This is what we “see” when we “see” God from the backside as His power is going out of us. This is why Jesus said He was gentle and meek. This humility is a combination of realizing it is all His work and not ours, we are completely dependent upon Him, and we rejoice because of His perfect love and faithfulness toward us.

When we partake of the heavenly Father’s heart, then our trust follows for His love is perfect and He is faithful. This trust is the fuel to moving in faith. Without faith it is impossible to do what God asks, thus impossible to please Him, for all He asks is done only by and in His power and not our own. When we fly, we are at rest, for all is done through God’s power. When our inner wheel and outer wheels are established, there is no limit to what God can do through our little ole’ lives, even to moving mountains.

Beautiful Transcendence

Beautiful Transcendence

Shalom

Yesterday I did three videos. They marked a memorial and a new beginning. After 12 years of daily being drawn to the Bible and seeking to know my heavenly Father, this weekend He led me to fully embrace what I had been seeking; me as a part of Him in all purity and oneness of spirit. He came and made His home in me in a living union that always grows and expands by His will and His doing. He filled the hunger that drew me into the Bible by becoming a part of me; so that there is now an oneness in my spirit with Him filling the hunger. His spirit led and taught me through the Bible; but now He is doing so from within me and using all that is around me to increase our bond as He fills all my reality. What this will manifest in coming days … I can’t wait to experience. It is like I can now breathe; as if I’ve come out of the womb. And as my husband and I are one spirit, we’ve made this journey together; an experience beyond magnificent.

Born into the Kingdom

When we begin an honest journey to seek the living spirit of God in our midst, the grave of our mortal existence becomes a womb to be born again as Jesus spoke of in John 3. The womb is entering into His care, nourishment, guidance, protection, and instruction of Himself and His ways that eventually leads us to be birthed as spiritual creations who can be united to Him within our soul; for Him to come make His home in us. During this time of being in the womb, our nourishment, my nourishment, was the Bible. It is where I received the food of life to grow while in the womb, like an umbilical chord. I hungered for it. I grew by it. It brought amazing life giving truths.

After we grow to a certain level of maturity in our spirits, it is time for us to be born and enter into a new and living connection with our Father and His Son; thus to enter into His kingdom. This is a union with the heavenly Father through Christ’s divine nature, which has been knit to our soul through understanding and faith; that forms a pure oneness. It’s a union void of images of Him and expectations of how our union will appear in the physical for He is spirit and always advancing our union. (Wedding Day) He is always with us. His desires become our desires, His thoughts our thoughts, and His ways our ways.  It’s becoming His son/daughter in the fullest sense. In this bond the umbilical chord (Bible) is no longer needed as it once was. Though it was necessary to bring us to birth, to remain dependent on it as our source of nourishment, is to cease to transform and grow, as we should.

In coming to birth, we gain the bread of heaven from Christ by Him writing His truth directly on our hearts, as He is a part of us. There is no disconnect, nothing in between, but spirit to spirit. When our hearts are exposed what you see is His words written upon our hearts and new words being added by His spirit every day. There is nothing in between, thus a true and complete oneness that knows no lack. This is what Jesus taught.

Over the past months; I felt this transition … from a hunger that drew me to the Bible each day to a filling of that hunger deep within.  It is like the life source was becoming a part of my depths; creating a growing light within me. The communion each morning didn’t cease; it changed and grew much stronger. Our communion consumes my entire day and life for He is always with me. Revelation and understanding come from His spirit united to mine and is powerful and life-giving. He is bringing me fully into the present moment, which He is creating in magnificent beauty and love. My understanding of the words written in the Bible that brought me to this point actually continues to deepen in various areas; though it is no longer my source of nourishment; but His living spirit in me is my source. It’s a far superior connection; the one I’ve longed for. The words of Christ spoken through the Bible to my soul constructed a foundation of understanding upon which all is being built upon. The Teacher who came through those words that fed my hunger each morning is now being deeply intertwined with my spirit as my Husband. What a journey.

We aren’t going to be communing with our heavenly Father and His Son through a book in His kingdom; we come to Him spirit to spirit. This is what it is to meet Him in the air (spirit). He becomes our internal guide and compass. He becomes our thoughts, will and desires that move us to an ever-expanding reflection of His love. This directly impacts our connections to others. Our communion with one another will hold a new significance and impact as I’ve found with my husband. The words of life spoken between living spirits greatly increases us.

If you have read my blog or seen my videos you have known my passion for my heavenly Father that led me to diligently seek Him through the Bible. But now, that I have come out of the womb and to Him; I am embracing the fullness of Him in me as an eternal light directing every breath. It is absolutely beautiful, powerful and glorious as His spirit is also free to express and manifest Himself as He wills in my life and in the lives of others.

If you are experiencing this transformation as well; I know the delight in your spirit. Embrace Him fully. Let Him make His home in you; and you be His shining light.

Being a Delight to God

Being a Delight to God

We desire to be a delight, thus give great joy, to those we love .. how are we a delight to our heavenly Father?

The Creator of all, the heavenly Father, possesses all things, so what do we give Him? Delight. How? By walking according to the wisdom He gives us (not the wisdom of the world), and letting Him establish our steps by that wisdom. Micah 6:8

When we seek, listen and obey our heavenly Father’s wisdom in our lives, it creates a life of joy, peace, happiness, rest, blessing, and love. When we are abiding in this state it greatly delights God. His delight is seeing us in pure delight. Proverbs 16:20, Matthew 6:33 His Spirit manifests the perfect loving Father to us in every way.

My step-daughter moved in at the beginning of the year. Since she has been here, she has been absorbing and walking by the truths we’ve taught her about how to live; all in accordance with true wisdom from above. James 3:13-18 The results of her heeding our words have already started to bear beautiful fruit in her life. The exceedingly great joy for me and my husband is to see her abiding and growing in joy and true happiness that flows from those truths. Could parents desire anything more than for a soul, who is brought under their wings, to be listening and following the wisdom of true life and abiding in the abundant good fruit it produces? For this is to abide in the presence of God.

Numbers 14:8 “If the Lord delights in us, then He will bring us into this land and give it to us, ‘a land which flows with milk and honey.’

In a similar manner, the heavenly Father experiences delight in us. The wisdom He calls us to seek and abide in creates a life of satisfaction, peace, meaning, and love. Thus, when we follow this wisdom, it not only honors Him as our Father whom we obey, but our obedience shows we trust and love Him. John 15:10, John 14:15, 1 John 5:3 When our lives are a reality of delights of a pure heart, that gives Him great joy. The result is praise He desires, not contrived or forced, and the worship (loving and honoring Him) He desires, in spirit and truth.

God desires us to be in the fullness of joy, which we do by following His commandments/wisdom of pure love. Matthew 25:23, John 15:11

Proverbs 11:20 Those who are of a perverse heart are an abomination to the Lord, But the blameless in their ways are His delight.

To manifest this joy in our lives, the heavenly Father allows our situations to correct us when we are straying off the path of righteousness. Walking counter to the truth, which establishes love, creates pain and suffering. The pain and suffering are there to “tell” us to stop doing whatever is causing the pain (this can take deep reflection, seeking, and listening as the lies are many and layered) and seek His wisdom so we can experience peace and joy, thus experience Him in our lives.

Proverbs 3:12 For whom the Lord loves He corrects, Just as a father the son in whom he delights.

Jeremiah 9:24 But let him who glories glory in this, That he understands and knows Me, That I am the Lord, exercising lovingkindness, judgment, and righteousness in the earth. For in these I delight,” says the Lord.

We are to diligently seek the heavenly Father’s wisdom, which is the understanding of how to love Him, ourselves and others. Proverbs 3:15-16, 4:6, 16:16  This wisdom to be the guide to all our thoughts. 2 Corinthians 10:5 It entails thinking and acting in honor, mercy, justice, trustworthiness, honesty, grace, humility, peace, and loving kindness.

We seek understanding to the nature of these characteristics, but how they play out in each moment, we trust God to direct. We don’t rely on our understanding for the moment because we are not all knowing, but we trust His prompting in the moment that applies His wisdom to our situations. It isn’t about gaining wisdom, then running our lives. It’s about gaining understanding of the spirit of God, wisdom, and letting Him govern our lives by that wisdom.  Jeremiah 10:23, Proverbs 3:5-6

Psalm 147:10-11 He does not delight in the strength of the horse; He takes no pleasure in the legs of a man. The Lord takes pleasure in those who fear Him, In those who hope in His mercy.

This humbling of ourselves to our heavenly Father’s will is letting Him establish our righteousness and be our righteousness. This is also what it means to “accept Christ into our heart”. It means to let the word of God, Christ, govern our heart (the seat of our desires) in every way. It’s to move out of lies and deceit (mankind’s wisdom governing our heart) and let His truth establish our present reality as He wills. Thus we cultivate a very personal and intimate engagement with our God inside out.

Righteousness, love, and holiness are views of God from three different angles.

In righteousness all actions are done correctly. Love is what walking in righteousness looks like. When you walk in righteousness, you create an environment that is extremely loving to all. Righteousness, which creates love, makes the environment  holy because where true love is that is where God is because He is love.

Seek to be one in whom God delights.

A Mind of Eternity

A Mind of Eternity:

Truth Replacing Lies Masquerading as Truth

In a recent video, How We Carry the Presence of God, I described how we interact with our Heavenly Father and thus His wisdom. (note: I’ve been doing a lot more videos as the new wine is forming, thus I haven’t been able to keep up with all of them here, but please check them out for they hold very powerful truths: Stirring the Deep YouTube.) Through this communion is how we disconnect from receiving from the mass consciousness of letting mankind’s wisdom fill our thoughts, and connect to the pure consciousness of letting our heavenly Father’s wisdom fill our thoughts. When you make this shift you start to gain a mind of eternity, the mind of Christ. Romans 12:2, Matthew 7:21, Matthew 12:50

When you begin receiving from the pure consciousness of God; then what you automatically put into the mass consciousness is that purity. 1 Timothy 3:9, 1 John 5:4 This is how Christ, the Word of God, is going to renew the earth. He develops His perfect mind in those in true communion with His spirit, and they put the thoughts of that mind into the mass consciousness. John 17:17, 2 Thess 2:8 This is Christ coming with His saints. 1 Thess 3:13 It’s Christ’s spirit united to those who have been purified, then they spread His spirit, the spirit of truth and kingship, into the world. By having their mind cleansed into the pure consciousness of God, over time they alter the mass consciousness. Hebrews 10:22 Galatians 4:19, Matthew 25:31 It’s like medicine to a sick body. Romans 5:12-21

The mass consciousness will keep altering until it’s consumed in pure wisdom; thus all truth and no lies. (A lie is a concept/idea presented as truth promising a certain outcome.) 1 Corin 15:22-28, Isaiah 52:1-2 This is why the saints are the light to the darkness. The light is the wisdom of God, the darkness is the wisdom of mankind under the sway of evil. Matthew 5:15-16, Job 12:22

This pure truth will eventually replace all the lies. Lies only continue because the truth is not known. Without truth, people believe a lie as truth because they believe some thought, word or act produces something good; when it actually produces harm. When a lie is exposed by the truth in all its fullness, for there can be many layers to a lie, then it disappears. It was never real, so it ceases to exist.

Fear comes from a lie trying to hold on; it is what you feel when a lie is fighting to stay alive in your mind. Thus, as the lies are being usurped by the truth, fear will increase among those holding onto the lies. This is why there is no fear for those walking in righteousness; and those in unrighteousness are consumed in fears. This is also why you want to be seeking TRUTH in LOVE from God Himself; fear is a debilitating state of mind that produces significant harm. Proverbs 10:24, Isaiah 14:3, Isaiah 54:14

People operating by the corrupted mass consciousness exist in death. It keeps them bound in lies and false images about the past, present, and future. Lies are attached to images because they aren’t real. The image they are attached to makes them seem real. When the images are revealed for what they are; illusions, lies are destroyed because they were never real in the first place. (Images like what is a successful person, a happy life, a desirable woman, to be intellectual, a godly person, who God is, etc.) Because lies aren’t real, those who believe them and live by them are “non-existent” or dead. They aren’t living in reality. Psalm 115:4-8

Do you see how an image makes a lie real? Remember when you use to believe in Santa Claus? You had an “image” of him in your mind supported by people and things around you. When you learned he wasn’t real; you no longer had that “image” in your mind. If you lived a life serving an illusion like Santa Claus, what would your life be? The most damaging image we can possess is a false image of God; which religions create in the minds of people. When you have a false image of God; you are bound to death, the pit, and darkness and to all other images that imprison you; for He is the truth, way and light you need to be freed in every way.

The eternal mind is a polar opposite thought process from the mass consciousness under evil’s sway. Seek this mind of Christ.

This huge mind shift from operating as a dead creation of a finite flesh mind to a living creation of an eternal spirit mind has begun within the elect, the light bearers. I’ve been talking about this shift in recent videos, like Reshaping the Mind to Abundant life. To live in the wisdom of God is to live in the present moment in truth/love. The present is what is real, not the past or future. In the present is where God exists. To abide within the presence of God requires us to be present spirit minded.

“Wisdom and knowledge will be the stability of your times,
And the strength of salvation;
The fear of the Lord is His treasure”

Isaiah 33:6

Time for Renewal in You, In the Earth

Time for Renewal in You,

Thus in the Earth

 

How this new year goes comes down to this …

Most likely I’ll be speaking about obedience in the next several posts; as obedience is key to regenerating into a new creation; which has now begun in those of the Day. Matthew 19:28  Thus instruction in this area is pouring forth. Personally, I’m transitioning in ways I never have before; in essence from learning truth to becoming and living the truth. These are incredible days we are living in to say it extremely lightly.

The idea of obedience has negative connotations, and rightly so. The ones we’ve obeyed in this earthly existence lacked pure love, thus obedience has often been harmful and unproductive.

But obedience to a perfect loving Father is TOTALLY ABSOLUTELY different. Obedience to the heavenly Father is a path to the attainment of our deepest desires (purest of love, wisdom, joy, purpose, peace, purity, and blessing, which are all characteristics of our Father). This obedience is a delight because you walk in the purest of love thus receiving the purest of love. Put aside the negativity around obedience and seek to know it in relation to the heavenly Father who loves you. Remember His obedience is different; it is love. Put aside your expectations and listen. Matthew 11:29-30

Obedience Now Possible

Obedience wasn’t possible until the Father came in Christ reconciling Himself to the world. 2 Corinthians 5:19 That plan has been playing out for thousands of years. On the dawn of Christ’s rising in our hearts; that obedience is possible. 2 Peter 1:19, Revelation 22:16 As He returns within us, His righteousness mind becomes our own. Luke 17:21

We’ve had the instruction of the Holy Spirit teaching us about the Father, about His love and ways. 1 John 2:27  For those listening, the truths gained purified us to enable a marriage with Christ within us. John 17:17, John 15:3 We’ve learned from this Spirit, and now as the Light dawns in our hearts those truths are deepening and growing in power to transform us. It’s Christ spirit resurrecting us giving us His mind in place of our own that empowers us to walk in His ways.

As the Light dawns in us we begin to see much clearer. We realized what we saw before of our Father was a stick figure drawing of understanding. Knowing the heavenly Father as He unites to our spirits through Christ produces a MUCH deeper understanding and wisdom than we have ever had before. This is the new wine; and now different it is from the old.  At His return, the oppression of the enemy that kept us bound to unrighteousness is being lifted and replaced with His power to live in righteous love. Matthew 5:20-48

It’s an intense spiritual growth happening as we gain the mind of Christ by our spirits being knit to the One who is our salvation, the Lord Our Righteousness. Jeremiah 33:16

As Christ returns to reign in righteousness, we have a new power to obey, a new power to walk righteously; for this is what it means for Christ to reign in righteousness. His reign is in our souls. In walking in this Light and power, our lives are transformed into something amazing, beyond anything we’ve imagined. Are you experiencing this? Blessed are you for you will be a light to others. Isaiah 10:21-23

Isaiah 9:2 The people who walked in darkness Have seen a great light; Those who dwelt in the land of the shadow of death, Upon them a light has shined.

With this Light rising in our hearts, the power to leave the pit is given. The prison doors are flung open. The Light is shining in a place, our soul, that once was dark. It leads us, the prisoners, to freedom. Our acts of disobedience imprison us; the acts of obedience set us free.

Christ gave us His spirit not so we didn’t have to walk in God’s will but so that we could. Matthew 5:17-18 When we are righteous the law is fulfilled. Matthew 5:48 He enables us to do what we could never do on our own – be righteousness. Do you believe this? If you don’t your lack of faith will send you into tribulation. If you do, your faith is your victory.

Isaiah 9:3-5 You have multiplied the nation And increased its joy; They rejoice before You According to the joy of harvest, As men rejoice when they divide the spoil. For You have broken the yoke of his burden And the staff of his shoulder, The rod of his oppressor, As in the day of Midian. For every warrior’s sandal from the noisy battle, And garments rolled in blood, Will be used for burning and fuel of fire.

As long as you choose to stay in disobedience or believe you can’t do any different; that mindset will cast a darkness in front of you. Though the Light is near you – you can not see it. The Light will always be at your back until you turn to it. 2 Chronicles 30:9, Jeremiah 2:27 You turn by obeying His words spoken to you about your personal circumstances and life. (It isn’t following religious doctrine; it is living in loving kindness to all)

Examine Your Life; By Examining Your Heart

Take a look with the Father into your heart … there is an area you know you are walking contrary to His will and ways; perhaps a sin or temptation that has plagued you. Now is the time to break free as the prison doors have been opened. The strength of the enemy, the power of lies and deception, is being cast down. Take that area and seek the truth from the Father who loves you and ask for the truth that will set you free. Then whatever way He leads you to obey – do it. It may seem like an unrelated area, but obey. He is building your trust in Him and that His ways truly do lead to life and that His ways truly are good and He is far more loving than you thought.

As you obey, you’ll experience more power as with each step you move out of the pit and into the Light, His presence of peace. He is truth. To be united to Him you must be in His ways; this is what unity means. Obedience leads you straight into His heart; a heart of peace, love, joy, unity, wisdom, blessing that you experience in your spiritual and physical life.

Wisdom (understanding God’s truths in your life) leads to obedience (walking in God’s ways) that leads to power (those ways transforming your life) and that power feels like pure love.

Obedience is easy to do when you understand the wisdom behind it and see the abundant love in it. Then your response is “of course!”
