Soul Gyrations

Soul Gyrations of

Entering into a New Reality

space

The attribute of divine love is a great revealer, healer, and liberator at work within our soul. It moves into our soul through the workings of the Holy Spirit, who reveals this love to us, and through the instructions of the Spirit of Truth, who teaches us the spiritual laws that express this love.

As this love takes up residence in our souls, it reveals the will of our heavenly Father in ways that we couldn’t normally perceive, because clarity of his will is found in the workings of divine love. So, when we perceive a situation or relationship from this attribute’s perspective we move closer to what the will of God is for us, which is the perfect will for us, in those circumstances or relations. Through this awareness, we start to deepen not only in our understanding of his will for our individual lives, but also for humankind and all of creation.

In this understanding and work of the spirit, our lives start to conform to our Father’s “image” by partaking of his substance. In this realignment, our healing commences that regenerates our soul from one encased in the attributes of lack to one flowing in abundance. It’s all part of our individuality forming through this mortal experience.

Our Father’s will is expressed to us through spiritual laws pertaining to our created reality. These “laws” define for us the inner workings and various aspects of life until eventually we understand all our experiences in relation to these truths, thus the attribute of divine love. These spiritual laws reflect not only this love, but also many of the attributes of our Father that are incorporated into his love; beauty, harmony, goodness, sincerity, honor, righteousness, perfection, grace, mercy, forgiveness, purity, holiness, etc.

When we start to think and act in harmony with these laws, we not only learn more about our Father’s true nature, but also we start to partake of his substance, thus becoming a child, who reflects his likeness. Laws pertain to cause and effect, and the cause and effect relationship is a core aspect of our experiences. Therefore, as the spiritual laws are revealed, the relationships between the causes and effects occurring in our lives become more self-evident. This awareness is what creates a ripple effect of transformative growth in our souls and in our choices leading to a rejuvenated and liberated life; a life of his reflection.

However, it’s not all bliss at this point of our individualization formation. Though we know of his love and our spirit is transforming toward his likeness, during the process, we experience temporary upheavals in our souls. Sometimes they are quite cataclysmic as our temporal natures sown in perceived separation are replaced with everlasting ones sown in divine love. It’s much like the pains of childbearing and when they are particularly intense, childbirth, as we become souls born of our Father’s nature.

These disruptions come as the spirit of love and truth shines as a light in our soul, like a lamp on a dimmer switch illuminating a dark room. Little by little, it exposes everything in our soul and in our lives, and it leaves nothing hidden from its gentle yet targeted rays. In its illumination what we “see” within ourselves may lead to eye-opening and sometimes heartbreaking awareness as our fallen nature becomes apparent. At times during this process, it feels as if our life is being turned upside down from the inside out as everything that isn’t harmonious with his nature is shaken out; inclinations and natures of judgments, fears, worthlessness, pride, greed, hypocrisy, self-pity, useless cares, vanities, etc.; everything based on lies. And at these times, we realize we are totally dependent upon his work in us and not our own efforts, which he faithfully accomplishes. Though it may hurt a little or a lot, through these deep soul gyrations we are freed in ways we never knew we were bound as the truth takes up residence where the lies once dwelled.

After a series of these disruptions, we realize we are moving into a new reality; one founded on an abundance of divine love and no longer on separation and lack. These seasons bring a sprout of growth and we witness that he is making all things beautiful in time. And these intensities, which are leading to transformation, are part of the regeneration process. Also, we recognize that we are being transitioned by his spirit from a child coming out of a void caused by a perceived separation from our Father’s love to one who is springing forth from his love. Thy kingdom come, thy will be done. The kingdom comes within you.

Our Father’s will for our individual lives and humankind is beyond what we have desired of ourselves. It’s far more beautiful, bountiful and blissful, for in his will is our ultimate peace and freedom.

Establishing our soul to be in harmony with his soul is a work that our Father does with extreme care. It isn’t instant or done in haste. It’s true, real and everlasting. It’s the work of a diligent Creator and his carpenter making everything beautiful; every motive, desire, inclination, thought, and every expression that follows. As we push into his love, desiring it to consume every breath, he refashions our individuality in order to create a true and everlasting oneness with Him. This experience for us is one of a total transformation in our soul because no area is left untouched by his attentive spirit. Thus, it’s our ultimate freedom. In his will that is expressed through his truths of love we are totally free.

This “freeing” of our free-will is the irony of this journey. Left to our own understandings and ways, which we think is our freedom, we create a twisted personality, thus choices and lives that imprison us. In his will, we are individualized souls who find immense freedom in all our expressions and all our ways. And what we are, we give to the world.

I’m ready to be in this place as I know you are, but until then may we encourage one another in our personal expeditions of becoming who we uniquely are as children being wonderfully made by our perfect heavenly Parent.

Mistaken Identity

Mistaken Identity:

The End of Separation

 

Space

Before I begin, I want to clarify a particular truth because the truths that this post references are very powerful when received into our soul. When we converse with our heavenly Father in a true communion, we encounter him soul to soul, for he is soul and without physical form. In this kind of communion, his soul impresses spiritual truths and his divine love directly onto our soul bypassing our personality housed in this flesh and all its limitations. Thus, we are able to receive deep understandings that surpass a limited human mind and language. Then later we attempt to put words to what we know. Thus, to truly grasp these truths, we must each connect to the Source of us, our Father, and receive them soul-to-soul. If you learn in this way, you know exactly what I mean. Further, you will understand I’m only touching the surface of many more beautiful truths that take our understanding much deeper.

As our soul perceptions awaken to the divine love of our heavenly Father, we accept that his love has always been with us. A separation between him and us never existed, only a perceived separation caused by the process of the formation of our individuality, which was needed for us to be able to receive and give love. As we reflect upon our memories and see them within the framework of his love, we realize he was always there hidden beneath our misunderstandings of who he is and who we are in relation to him.

The action or cause that created our soul into an individual soul expression, making you you and me me, originated with our Father. Thus, he is the first cause of our existence that led to a vast chain of cause and effects bringing us up to this present moment. But as it’s a chain and he the originator, his ultimate effect will be fulfilled, which is our being in a bond of immortal love with him and all of his creation. He is the beginning and the end of us and will fill all in all. His plans never fail, for he is the Creator.

Prior to our existence in this physical form, our soul was without individuality inhabited in the soul of God. He is the Creator of all, thus all originates and comes from him. This is why a longing for a connection to our Creator is so strong among humankind, and we all try in a myriad of ways and expressions to have that connection with him, which is truly beautiful when you think about it and in itself an expression of our individuality.

As we expand in divine love, we realize our connection with our Father was never severed or lost. In the formation of our individuality, thus a uniqueness of our own, we mistook our individuality as separation from Him. In this erroneousness belief, we acted as if we were separate, though it was always and only a perceived separation and not a true reality, but a reality of our crafting. Further, the erroneous teachings throughout history about who we are and who our Father is have kept us blinded to his true nature and thus his deep eternal love for us; a love that not even death can separate us from. True death is the belief in a separation from the love of our Father, yet that belief is only an illusion, for his love never fails. This is why death can be overcome and defeated; it’s not real.

Divine love never forsakes, never fails. It’s constant and immutable. It doesn’t wax and wane. It simply is. We took what we didn’t understand and made it into something it wasn’t – our individuality formation as a separation from our Father. Our forming individuality that occurs in this earth life and beyond is a required component for us to be able to truly love, for love is always voluntary.

Encapsulated in the reality of this physical environment, our souls are able to have a free will, thus individualization, that doesn’t disrupt all of the spiritual realms. It’s here that we grow like an embryo being fashioned in the enclosed watery darkness of the womb. Since love is completely voluntary, we started the beginning of our individualization with a point of “non-existence” in that we have no prior memory of being a part of God. Without individualization, we didn’t have the facilities of memory to contain that truth. This is how we were able to believe in a separation though one didn’t exist. And the belief in separation led to acting in error because of the inherent fear in separation, and so the cycle begins; a cycle that only an acceptance of divine love can deliver us from. Christ Jesus came to break this cycle, for he knows the perfection of divine love.

If humankind understood the purpose and nature of this existence, we would cease to spread our lack of awareness and perpetuate this perceived separation throughout the generations. But this seemingly erratic chain of events is purposefully worked into the design of our Creator. The original cause of us all comes from our heavenly Father, thus his intended effect will manifest, for his love never fails.

Free will gives us the ability to choose. Choice is what creates our uniqueness, thus individuality, thus our ability to know and give love. However, as we developed in our individuality through our free will choices and unique experiences, and believed in this perceived separation, we created all kinds of havoc; lies, fears, unworthiness, ugliness, and so on all manifesting from perceived separation. We weren’t aware of our true Source and the purpose of our physical reality – to shape our individuality through free-will and choice so that we could abide for eternity in a bond of true love. But our Father in his amazing faithfulness and perfection of original causality takes all our mishaps and creates something beautiful from them by a restructuring of our memories.

In a perceived separation and the following creation of temporary error, disharmony and harm that came from our free-will, we judged ourselves unworthy, unlovable and rejected by our heavenly Father. This was our judgment of ourselves in our lack of understanding of his love for us, a love we only realize when we accept that his love is here and always has been for each one of us. And when we extend our soul to that love by finding harmony with the truths of our Father, we realize separation was only an illusion of a developing personality.

It’s our memories fashioned in lies, which we held as true, that bind us to a perceived separation, for in this belief, we create the ramification of this belief (fear, pain, ugliness, rejection, lack of love) that strengths that belief. But as divine love fills our soul it dissolves all these effects, and emanates a light of truth instead of the darkness of separation, and our memories are cleansed. Our Father reshapes our understandings so that the hurts of the past that came from our perceived separation are dissolved. All that lingers is the beauty that came from them; understanding, compassion, humility, harmony with his will, and above all a knowing and abiding in his love, for now we are able to love.

Divine love gives us the knowing that we are and always have been our Father’s beloved child and that everyone is. But in creating the beauty of a sincere and true love, we needed our own individuality, thus, our journey into soul development, which began at our physical birth, and will continue to expand into eternity.

May we all realize we are and always have been adored children of our Father and know our true identity. In this knowing, we enter deeper into his love that is always there for us, and that love makes everything beautiful in its time.

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.

A Natural Spark or A Divine Glow

A Natural Spark or

A Divine Glow

 

space

Compassion, an expression of love, is a defining characteristic of one who sees, understands, cares and loves.

In our natural love, we have compassion for others when we possess a certain level of understanding of their life experiences. The more we know of their defining life experiences, the more compassion we have. This is true with anyone; even those who are very hurtful. We may not like the harm their actions/words create, but knowing that their actions come from their painful past generates a compassion for them. This truth, I have realized for some time. Compassion flows from understanding.

Uncompromising Compassion

What I’ve learned more recently through my experiences is that with the receipt of divine love, we gain a perception of others that sees them more deeply even without a personal understanding, because we are “seeing” them through this divine love of our heavenly Father.

As divine love shapes our perceptions; we see into the souls of others and their beautiful potential. We see that they are dearly beloved children of our Father, no matter their current soul condition, and we feel a reflection of this love within us. And when we see them suffering, for whatever reason, compassion is ignited in us. Our desire intensifies, as divine love expands within us, that they too may be freed from all that blinds and binds them, a freedom that only divine love can bring into their lives. In response, our soul extends outward to them with compassion and a desire for their suffering to be alleviated.

As we grow in divine love, we experience an increasing compassion toward others. It’s not a compassion that is segmented, in that it extends to some and not others, at some times and not others, or in some situations and not others. It doesn’t flow from ourselves, but from our heavenly Father through us, and his divine love extends to every soul and living creation. He is the true Father of all, and a Father whose love never fails and is always constant, for it’s immutable as he is. Thus, as we become recipients of that divine love we start to experience this all-consuming boundless love. Because divine love is of our Father, it’s a love when possessed by us holds his characteristics. So it isn’t a love that we normally see. It holds a purity of truth, a higher intellect, and an unpredictable nature in its expression. It’s a love beyond us, yet becomes a part of us as he forms a oneness with us. And when we’ve experienced a drop of the realness and truth of this divine love, all we want are those drops to become a living stream flowing freely through us to others.

A Divine Glow

Divine love begins as a drop of liquid light of love in our soul that emanates a radiant glow. Though it’s a drop and the emanating light dim, it’s shining constantly. It’s a part of immortality, thus it’s always constant because of the inherent life it possesses. It continues to grow brighter as we continue to draw near to the Source of divine love. This radiance from within is the beginnings of divine love within our soul, thus with it we start experiencing a deeper and truer love for all of creation, and compassion is a significant part of that love. It starts small, but it starts for all. It has an all-consuming nature ridding our lives of lines drawn in the sand that create separation.

In it’s light, all that causes distance in our souls from others starts to fade; judgment, fear, lack of care, criticism, condemnation, un-forgiveness, ill-will, pride, and so on as the Breath of life holding mercy, forgiveness, humility, healing, acceptance, and renewal fills our soul. This divine love is what it is, not because of us, but because of the Source who it’s continually flowing from.

As for our natural love, it is consumed by divine love casting a beautiful reflection.

A Natural Spark

While divine love is a glowing constant in our soul, our natural love waxes and wanes with the drama of the human soul. Natural love or human love is born out of our relationships and is generated by our own self-efforts to love. It sparks at times at not at others. It sparks for some and not others. It sparks for a while for someone, and then diminishes. Yet, divine love just is, whether a drop or more. It’s a steady light glowing in our soul that exudes care and thus compassion for all creation that never stops glowing or growing.

As beautiful and powerful as this divine love is, it isn’t something we can give of ourselves. It flows through a true harmonious union with our heavenly Father, the Source of this transcendent love. But the blessed answer to this gap is that our perfect Father desires nothing more than for us to ever be flowing in the stream of his divine love. This love is always present, always wants to give love, always wants to be connected, and always wants to expand. So in our desire for it, it will only continue to expand in us as our soul is transformed to receive and give it. Thus, its outflow to others only continues to grow more beautiful, which is a defining witness to the truth abiding in our soul.

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.

Life of a Beautiful Melody

Life as a Beautiful Melody

 

space

Truth is like music.

The mathematical perfection of music fascinates me. In the rigidity of the precise structure of scales, intervals, and notes, flows an experience of a harmonic melody that seems anything but constrained. It’s free, fluid, expressive, and seemingly beyond restraint. Yet, it’s the very rigidity that creates beauty within the rhythmic flow. One note out of harmony with the laws of music and it awkwardly stands out. So, out of 12 notes comes a variety of expression that continues to let composers construct unique compositions day after day, year after year. It’s an incredible display of perfection.

Active truth, truth we act and live by, is very much the same. When we live within the restraints of truth, our lives find an explosive freedom of glorious beauties. In truth, we live in harmony with all that corresponds to life and that harmony creates peace within and without. Peace brings freedom to living, expressing, and being.

The expression of truth is love. If there isn’t love inherent in the expression of a “truth”, then it isn’t truth. Truth can’t exist without love, and love can’t without truth. Truth expressed through a soul is an experience of a boundless love that is ever increasing, not rigidity. There is nothing more freeing that living in love. Yet, true love always flows out of truth for truth maintains and perpetuates love.

When we live by the expressed ways of love, thus truth, our soul grows in youthfulness, freedom, joy, peace, and rest. Without the suffocating stenches of death; anxiety, fear, stress, worry, lack, depression, anger, etc., which are counter to truth/love, our soul soars. Our personality finds an expression without limitation in its unique individuality. Like music, though the truths are defined, precise and unchanging, when they are expressed through our unique individuality they create the most beautiful expression of our soul personality. Though we may all walk in the same truths, our individual expressions are vast, unique, beautiful, and beyond compare. This is the incredible structure of our Father’s creation; uniqueness and beauty without limits coming from a defined set of attributes and laws of operation.

Shaping our Perception

This freedom, which gives expression to our personality and individuality, is derived from our perceptions. When we perceive our reality through a lens of fear, our soul is tainted in its expression with the elements of fear/lack. When we perceive through a lens of love, our soul finds its true expression, as it’s not hindered by fear/lack. Therefore, it’s our perception that needs to be purified or “filtered”, so that we see in accordance with divine love/truth, for all the interactions of life follow our perceptions.

This filter in our soul’s perception exists as a singular point of knowing. It’s knowing that our Father’s love is perfect toward us every moment and always has been, it’s sufficient for every encounter, and it’s always present helping and moving us closer to him. It is a singular knowing of his unfailing love in the heart of our soul perceptions. These truths of his love become our truths through our individual faith journey. Faith is the means of establishing new truths as our truths. Once we know, faith ceases for it has done its work. When our soul eye, the seat of our perceptions, has a deep knowing of the perfect divine love of our Father, then it is filled with light pushing out all the darkness, then we perceive as we should, in truth and love.

Without this knowing of his divine love, our perception is darkened by the possibilities presented by fear/lack. Thus, this filter functions like a point of light. It’s a point of light that filters all thoughts that come through our perceptions, by enlightening them with truth, so that all we perceive is of light (truth) and nothing of darkness (lies, lack, fear, etc). In this light, we see our present moment encapsulated in His divine love, and this perception is our freedom, joy, and liberation to all the elements of death.

We know this point of light has found a home in our soul, when we no longer perceive in fear/lack, but instead there is a peace that surpasses all understanding. For the peace isn’t born out of our surroundings, though his truth creates harmony in our surroundings, but out of our knowing of our Father’s love … a love that never fails, never changes, is ever-present, and sufficient for every moment. When this point of light has it’s home in our soul’s eye, we behold our immortality, for there is no separation in divine love.

When this point of light/knowing is our truth, we “see” our Father. Our Father’s reflection in our soul is the harmonious interworking of truth and love. Thus, in this purified perception, we are experiencing the inflow of His spirit through our souls and into our lives. This inflow is experienced as divine love.

With this filter in the very core of our perceptions, it enlightens all our thoughts of our present moment creating an accurate perception of our present. Therefore, we respond and act in the ways that create harmony.

Our present moment is a snapshot in time creating a sequence of one moment following another. The present is where the future and the past meet in our internal perceptions. In any encounter in our present, from an encounter with an idea, thing, person, or event, our mind recalls past memories and understanding, as well as extracting new input of the present moment. The combination of the two creates our perception. When we have this point of light in the eye of our soul, that light purifies the recall in reframing our memories in divine love/truth, and purifies the new input to create an accurate picture of the present moment. When we perceive in truth/love, then what follows is the divine intellect and love for that moment that creates a ripple effect of many more beautiful moments.

The beautiful harmonic melodies of music have an ability to express the emotions of love. Love, like music, is the universal language, a language that speaks to every soul. Living in the harmonies of truth, our soul speaks this beautiful language in a vast array of variety, a variety without end.

Radiating a Divine Reflection

Radiating a Divine Reflection

space

As we earnestly desire the inflow and outflow of the love of our heavenly Father, we transition into the power, significance, and depths of his absolute truths that carry this divine love into our souls, thus realities.

Divine love develops our soul. It causes significant changes to the foundational nature and substance of our soul. One of the first noticeable differences we experience is a sincere, life-changing, and deep care for others. A desire forms to fully love others along with a continual longing for an increased ability to love them perfectly. In this expansion, our perceptions of how we view all of creation changes affecting every aspect of our life choices, habits, and mannerisms.

In this love, mercy, forgiveness, compassion, patience, empathy, honor, significance, value, and honor all deepen and expand for ourselves and others reaching to the corners of creation. This love formulates from the back and forth movement of love as we experience those attributes and let them overflow to others. We give what we are, and what we are we give.

This divine perception emits from the intertwining unison of divine truth and love. This harmonious duality creates life-giving energy/power. Divine love is the guardrails to absolute/divine truth. All truth serves love. But divine love also travels through divine truths as we act upon them. We only love when we are in truth; we are only in truth when we love with the love of divinity. In this is our oneness with our heavenly Father.

In our free will, we influence the flow of divine love. It’s loosed by our desire to love with this superior all-encompassing love. Divine love travels in a circular fluidity, from the source of love into us and out to others. It’s only manifested as it’s received and given in a free flowing rhythm of generosity and abundance, which our desire and will influence.

However, this love is impossible for a human soul to achieve on its own. This divinity flows first from our Father’s soul and then guides us in a manner that we can’t ourselves. This love emanates from his all-knowing spirit, and directs us in ways that are beyond our limited perceptions. This all-knowing quality projects a perception upon our soul’s eye that gives us a divine ability to know how to think through a situation, what to say, how to respond, what choice to make, and what to do. This level of perception is our providence when we unite to divine love/truth. Thus, it pushes out all sin (disharmony with absolute truth/love) and error from our lives. Creating a reality of harmony and tranquility.

The initial movement of this love into our reality is initiated by faith. As we learn the divine truths, we act on them in faith, and then divine love flows through those truths and into our experiential reality. This faith is established and strengthened on the understanding of the joy and abundance that the fusion of truth and love create.

In this life-giving movement of our faith, we follow the will of the soul, and no longer the will of our mind. As our soul develops, our soul’s will encapsulates the will of our mind, so that our mind now serves our soul, which is being directed by the eye of God. If we remain directed by our mind, then the will of the soul isn’t sufficiently incorporated into our understanding, because the perceptions of God are beyond the mind’s natural ability. This all-knowing awareness infiltrates our soul perceptions as it comes from the soul of God. It’s like we are connected to the operating system of God, and thus our capabilities of perception are limitless, which we receive as needed.

The fulfillment of divine soul perception requires the speck of lack that sits upon the eye of our soul to be removed. Removing it allows the love of divinity to flow through our soul; otherwise our perceptions thus actions are tainted. This clarity of perception affects the outflow, which affects the power of this love to act in our lives and in the lives of others. Divine love is the greatest power. Though gentle, meek, and patient when it’s received there is nothing greater for it’s the foundation of absolute truth.

Shut one door, and another door opens.

This speck of lack creates a life-draining energy while the removal of the speck creates a life-giving energy. These manifest countering realities; one of lack versus one of abundance. Removing the speck from the soul’s eye shuts the door in our soul that creates an experience of lack. By faith in the absolute truths, the door that allows the inpouring of divine love into our souls and out to others opens. The opening of this door results in the realness of our Father’s everlasting all-powerful loving kindness. Thus, out of faith grows a new reality established on divine love/truth. This reality is the eternal present where the spirit of God finds his home.

May we all have the faith to shut the door of lack and open the door of abundance in the heart of our souls. Once faith moves divine love in us and establishes an eternal union, faith starts to fade and divine truth/love fills our eternal present.

A Cornucopia of Expressions

Humankind;

A Cornucopia of Expressions

space

Divine love/divine truth removes the labels, which we attach to others and ourselves, from our thoughts, thus our perceptions. All that remains is the identifier that we are the children of the Most High in each one’s own unique appearance and expression.

Labels

Labels attach certain attributes to another person or group of people. There are a multitude of labels that humankind has created over time to classify and identify human beings. Our minds like to generalize and categorize aspects of our lives, especially people. So, this labeling is a deeply embedded aspect of our thought processes.

At first glance, labels seems handy and efficient because a label can seemingly tell is a lot about someone … but there in lies the problem and the lies. Labels construe images of others based on varying incomplete and/or erroneous set of attributes. Thus, seeing someone through a label often creates inaccurate assumptions about who they are, which leads to treating them differently than we otherwise would. It’s very easy for a label to become a tool of judging another instead of seeing their unique individuality. There are similarities between people, of course, but seeing similarities and seeing in labels is very different. Similarities are perceptions that come from understanding and limited to the similarity. Labels can and often carry a whole host of attributes that may or may not be applicable to a certain individual. Labels are removed not in a word itself, as the politically correct movement as attempted to do in certain areas, but from our very thoughts, for our thoughts are the genesis to what is manifested in our reality. And this work of reframing how we see others is the result of divine love/truth expanding within us.

In labels, we see in images (the unreal), and in part. In divine love/truth, we see in realness and in fullness, for we are looking for and at the fullness of the soul of an individual, and not the thin and often erroneous image created by a label. Any one label can reflect different attributes for different people, thus they can be and often are very misleading to the true nature of any one person. But divine love/truth flushes out those perceptions that create faulty assumptions, separation, and judgments. In our mind’s need to classify, divine love/truth reframes our perceptions, so that our only “label” is someone as a child of our heavenly Father in his/her own uniqueness. It’s the only “label” we need. This leaves lots of exploration about whom that person truly is. Once the labels as we know them are removed from our perceptions (and there are many), we appreciate the distinctiveness and splendor of others that creates a harmonious connection.

Divine love/truth is a unifying energy. It creates harmony, not separation. Labels put someone in one group and us in another because we’re different, thus they create separation, not unity, in our thoughts, thus our words and actions. As we start to be transformed by divine love/truth, all that creates separation in our thoughts is removed and replaced with what creates harmony and peace, and this concept of labels is one of many.

Unique Expressions of Our Similarities

We are far more alike than different as human beings, and the differences are only in the expression of our similarities. For example, we all have the same emotions, which vary on a continuum of expression depending upon how our surroundings taught us how to express them. We are all unique, and we are all similar at the same time.

Not only are we are all similar, but also we are a part of each other. What I do effects you and it effects me, thus what I do to you I do to me, and what I do to me I do to you. For example, if I honor myself, then I will honor for you, for if I contain true honor in my soul, then it expresses itself all the time to all people. Likewise, if I honor you, then I also honor myself. Thus, when we “see” others, we are seeing varied expressions of ourselves. And here is a deeper truth; we see others through our present understanding or filters so that what we see in others reflects more of us than of them. This is why two people can see one person very differently. How we see someone is more about us than them.

Labels of Relative Truth

Differences created from labels are simply a perspective that we hold in our mind because of the label. Thus, labels are the progenitor of relative truths. A label of a group or type of person holds certain characteristics to us, which may and often does vary from someone else, thus it’s a relative truth. Further, if we see someone and attach a label to him or her thus all the attributes that label reflects to us, we’ve made our own relative truth about that person. It isn’t based in what is real, but what is unreal. So now we are acting and responding in what is unreal. Whenever we act on the unreal as real, we create a myriad of problems that causes division and not harmony.

The absolute/divine truth is that we are all our heavenly Father’s children and a unique expression of all that we have experienced. The relative truth comes from the labels that we each believe we are and others are, and thus live by. If we define ourselves by a label and the corresponding attributes, then we become the label. This dynamic is known as a self-fulfilling prophecy.

Creators of Self-fulfilling Prophecy

Labels create self-fulfilling prophecies, especially when impressed upon a young mind. When we label a child in a certain way, we are laying a framework upon their mind that shapes their thoughts about who they are and who they are not, what they can do and what they can not, how they are seen by others and how they are not. They take on a likeness of the labels we give them. Is that their true nature? Yes and no. They are fulfilling what they believe themselves to be, but that can change when they no longer let that label identify them. It’s only a relative truth, which is always changeable. A label is only true if an individual soul allows that particular imprint to define his nature. But it isn’t necessary who they truly are, but an identity that they have taken on. We believe it so we act and live upon it. But that doesn’t make it an absolute truth. A great gift to give another is to see them through divine love/truth, regardless of how they see themselves.

Divine love/truth removes labels from our lives and perspectives they create, and reframes us and others in the label of a child of God, which we all are, thus creating harmony and unity.  We no longer see others through labels, which is seeing them through images, but we see them as unique individuals radiating their own individuality.

This world is drowning in labels, but divine love/truth totally reframes how we see others and creates an awareness of a cornucopia of variety that is beautiful among the children of the Most High.

Rising Out of the Ashes

Rising Out of the Ashes

How deep is the Creator’s love? This is what I’m learning ….

Divine love reaches deep into creation. It travels to the smallest formation of matter that is first shaped by energy, because love is energy. This is how deep the love of divinity goes, there is no aspect of creation that can’t be and isn’t touched by it. It underscores the very foundations of creation.

What creates particle formations is energy. In the context of the energy of fear and the energy of divine love, this dynamic makes for an eye-opening awareness that alters how we perceive everything, for everything comes down to the interaction of particles and the energy that governs them.

Fear is energy. When fear is great, we experience its nervous energy. Love is energy. When love is great, we experience its vivacious energy. But even though we may not be consciously aware of the lower vibration energies governing our soul day to day, they are fundamentally coming out of fear (lack of love) or love. So, what form of energy is our soul connected to that is shaping our reality, from the smallest to the largest aspects of our lives?

Fear in our reality is like dust. It’s small, consuming, sometimes hard to detect, hiding in dark places, and showing up in unexpected places. It lingers in our thoughts. It shows up in our responses. It wakes us up at night. The combination of fear energy and soul particles create a virus-like nature in our soul; one inducing harm in a myriad of ways. However, when the energy of divine love connects to our soul it constructs a harmonious vitality.

Fear finds its genesis by falling into the crevices of our mind, buried, lingering, and accumulating in our thoughts and pouring into our actions, choices, and responses. Fear interacts and affects what we see based on our personal perception, for fear is in the eyes of the beholder. When we start to move out fear by faith in divine love, we see how truly pervasive it was in our perceptions, thus our lives.

If fear remains unchecked it simmers and causes all kinds of problems and often snowballs, for fear attracts fear, the law of attraction. One act of fear leads to a poor decision that creates more fear, and so on. Fear is often a deeply integral part of the fabric of our perceptions, thus reality, because of how it connects and shapes our deepest thoughts. Thus, it frequently goes undetected in our conscious awareness. However as we grow in our soul perceptions, we see it more clearly for what it is. But, most of us have become accustomed to its presence so it goes unnoticed, though it drives and determines many actions, which makes it all the more powerful.

Fear clouds our wisdom. Fear in our thoughts removes our ability to see clearly, like a dusty windshield. The more fear, the less visibility. When we don’t perceive our surroundings accurately, it creates a lack of wisdom. There is an inversely proportionate relationship between fear and wisdom. The more fear, the less wisdom. Driving with a dirty windshield isn’t wise, neither is acting in fear, it clouds our discernment, decision making … everything. It greatly dampens our passion, drive, courage, faith, and all that give us vital energy to our lives.

Further, wisdom deceases when we experience fear because it causes a “flight” or “fight” response. We withdraw (flight) in self-pity, stay in our comfort-zone, which is the no-grow zone, physically retreat, emotionally suppress, or socially withdrawal, etc. or we are aggressive (fight) by attacking, controlling, forcing, pushing, or anger, etc. Both responses cause harm to others and us.

We currently abide in a society that perpetuates and feeds on fear, because of the lack of awareness of its counter part – divine love. In this absence, fear is one of the strongest controlling agents in us, in our society, and in our world. This is why it is often used often to control, why it is effective, and why it is prevalent.

BUT fear isn’t real. It’s born out of lies.

Unlike divine love, fear isn’t real, but is born out of mankind’s will when he acts contrary to divine love, which is always done when a lie is received as truth or good. Thus outside its source, the mind of man, it has no power or reality. In the divine (absolute) truth, there is no fear, because it isn’t of the Creator’s making. It’s only the perception of mankind (place of relative truth) who perceive in lack; lack creates fear.

When we think in fear, then act in fear, we’ve made what was unreal real to ourselves, and often that spreads to others because of the fear they already hold. It starts with acting on lies, believing they are truth, and that makes them real in our reality. Acting on the unreal as real creates a chaotic spiral of creating more fear through faulty assumptions, self-fulfilling prophesy, defense mechanisms, and ill judgments. The combination of fear energy and matter creates a great weakness in us that causes a ripple effect of problems in and outside of us. Without divine love, fear has freedom to swiftly and dominantly expand. With divine love, love enters our weakness and starts driving out the debilitating fears.

Divine love is like a consuming fire. It’s the highest form of energy thus has dominance over all other forms, especially fear that is born out of the unreal. As we move into divine love, the dust of fear starts to burn away, for in divine truth, which comes with divine love, the lies are snuffed out and turned to ashes. As divine love moves in, we begin to rise out of the ashes of the dissolving fears until they are no more. In the light of divine truth, we see fear for what it is, then divine love starts directing us.

Here is a great beauty. Look under the smallest particle, and you will see the love of the Creator waiting to be activated by the human will. This love of divinity is what is truly real because it is eternal as it comes from the Creator, verses fear which is bound to the consciousness of mankind sown in lies. His divine love underscores all of creation down to the smallest particles, for all is of His creation. Divine love becomes real to the soul when it is known, believed, and acted upon.

Fear doesn’t exist in perfect divine love. It’s impossible because perfect love cares perfectly for all creation in every area. But this love has to be desired, chosen and embraced by the soul of mankind. It has specific ways (divine truth) that it interacts and doesn’t, and our mind, heart, soul, and strength (will) have to assimilate to those ways. Two opposing things can hold the same space at the same time, it’s either the energy of love or fear at the most base level of our existence. And the choice is ours. Powerful.

As we grow in understanding of love of divinity, we become a part of it as it works within us to renew our soul in love. It’s the energy of the soul that shapes all the particles it comes into contact within its sphere of influence. Through it, our heavenly Father raises us out of the ashes as His love travels into the deepest parts of our soul and exposes every dust particle of fear and burns it away.

A life without fear knows expansive freedom, joy, peace, love and power. As for the power, it comes from the increasing wisdom in the ability to see clearly once the dust is gone. Thus, we respond, act, and choose ways of wisdom that bring what is truly desirable into our realities.

May we all be “dusted off” by divine love.
