This excerpt is from lesson 96 of the book, A Course in Miracles. It helps, when trying to understand something and remember it, to write it down as you think. This way, your body is participating in the thinking, taking it out of the mind and making you, in a way, act out the thoughts, anchoring it in reality. Note: caps seem to refer to subjects residing in the non-physical.
Although you are one self, you experience yourself as two; as both good and evil, loving and hating, mind and body. This sense of being split into opposites induces feelings of acute and constant conflict, and leads to frantic attempts to reconcile the contradictory aspects of this self-perception. You have sought many such solutions, and none of them has worked. The opposites you see in you will never be compatible. But one exists.
The fact that truth and illusion cannot be reconciled, no matter how you try, what means you use and where you see the problem, must be accepted if you would be saved. Until you have accepted this, you will attempt an endless list of goals you cannot reach; a senseless series of expenditures of time and effort, hopefulness and doubt, each one as futile as the one before, and failing as the next one surely will.
Problems that have no meaning cannot be revealed within the framework they are set. Two selves in conflict could not be resolved, and good and evil have no meeting place. The self you made can never be your Self, nor can your Self be split in two, and still be what It is and must forever be. A mind and body cannot both exist. Make no attempt to reconcile the two, for one denies the other can be real. If you are physical, your mind is gone from your self-concept, for it has no place in which it could be really part of you. If you are spirit, then the body must be meaningless in your reality.
Spirit makes use of mind as means to find its Self expression. And the mind which serves the spirit is at peace and filled with joy. Its power comes from spirit, and it is fulfilling happily it function here. Yet mind can also see itself divorced from spirit, and perceive itself within a body it confuses with itself. Without its function then it has no peace, and happiness is alien to its thoughts.
Yet mind apart from spirit cannot think. It has denied its Source of strength, and sees itself as helpless, limited and weak. Dissociated from its function now, it thinks it is alone and separate, attacked by armies massed against itself and hiding in the body’s frail support. Now must it reconcile unlike with like, for this is what it thinks it is for.
Waste no more time on this. Who can resolve the senseless conflicts which a dream presents? What could the resolution mean in truth? What purpose could it serve? What is it for? Salvation cannot make illusions real, nor solve a problem that does not exist. Perhaps you hope it can. Yet would you have God’s plan for the release of His dear Son bring pain to him, and fail to set him free?
Your Self retains Its [own] Thoughts, and they remain within your mind and in the Mind of God. The Holy Spirit holds salvation in your mind, and offers it the way to peace. Salvation is a thought you share with God, because His Voice accepted it for you and answered in your name that it was done. This is salvation kept among the Thoughts your Self holds dear and cherishes for you.
We will attempt today to find this thought, whose presence in your mind is guaranteed by Him Who speaks to you from your one Self. [See How A Guide May Be Set Up]. Our hourly five-minute practicing will be a search for Him within your mind. Salvation comes from this one Self through Him Who is the Bridge between your mind and It. Wait patiently, and let Him speak to you about your Self, and what your mind can do, restored to It and free to serve Its Will.
Begin with saying this:
Salvation comes from my one Self. Its Thoughts are mine to use.
Then seek Its Thoughts and claim them as your own. These are your own real thoughts you have denied, and let your mind go wandering in a world of dreams, to find illusions in their place. Here are your thoughts, the only ones you have. Salvation is among them; find it here.
If you succeed, the thoughts that come to you will tell you you are saved, and that your mind has found the function that it sought to lose. Your Self will welcome it and give it peace. Restored in strength, it will again flow out from spirit to the spirit in all things created by the Spirit as Itself. Your mind will bless all things. Confusion done, you are restored, for you have found your Self.
Your Self knows that you cannot fail today. Perhaps your mind remains uncertain yet a little while. Be not dismayed by this. The joy your Self experiences It will save for you, and it will yet be yours in full awareness. Every time you spend five minutes of the hour seeking Him Who joins your mind and Self, you offer Him another treasure to be kept for you.
Each time today you tell your frantic mind salvation comes from your one [True] Self, you lay another treasure in your growing store. And all of it is given everyone who asks for it, and wil accept the gift. Think, then, how much is given unto you to give this day, that it be given you!
What is the cause of the fears with which we may be born? The phobias we are plagued with? One possible reason is fear of karmic retribution due to guilt. Something we experienced and know about buried within our subconscious. A lot of people hate insects, especially spiders. A tiny eight legged creature that generally doesn’t harm humans is a terrifying thing to many humans. A bee or wasp has a more significant record of harming humans than a common spider. But the fear of spiders is more common.
An example of how guilt can play a part in creating a fear of insects, or creepy crawlies, is in how the being interacted with this type of consciousness in the past. Not in how they interacted with the form of bug here on Earth, but with the actual consciousness of the being or the portion of the being who is in that state of consciousness. If the phobic being has a karmic history of preying on and taking advantage of a being who is currently much less aware and in a more helpless state, then he knows somewhere within himself that he has karma with this type of consciousness. By interaction, I’m referring to the interaction on the consciousnesses directly, not through the incarnated forms.
Consciousness that express as some type of insect, or a fragmented consciousness that expresses a portion of itself this way have a history of being prey to the spider. This may create a phobia. Many types of bugs are part of a colony that works with a central authority. All drones work to feed and protect the queen or authority figure. This is seen in human behavior as communism. The expression of people as worker bees without independence from an authority is anti-life for a higher consciousness. This behavior denies the spirit and awareness of the people. It makes no sense whatsoever that it is expressed unless the consciousnesses involved contain the attributes of the insect kingdom: fear, defer to authority because they don’t want to take responsibility for their lives, and don’t have a will to live or take control over their own minds. It is self-defeating and always results in decay. It succeeds with insects because they have ceased thinking and are mindless. Life in this case always refers to the honest expression of consciousness, which results in the highest and best outcome for all (the philosophical idea behind communism).
Insects feed, eat eachother and are constantly eaten. It is a more accelerated version of life than that in the human form. They die, are reborn and die continuously in a short frame of time. Some would consider that a consciousness or a portion of one (like a fragmented mind) at this level, would be experiencing hell at the level of his spirit/soul. It is a consciousness that does not have a desire to think, live or be responsible or aware of itself. The Earth uses this type of consciousness, which at this point can be considered just energy and not thought because no one is aware of the thought (maybe something like – I hate myself) in a life affirming way for itself. The Earth is the energy of life. The insects recycle decay back into life giving nutrients and soil. They are like a clean up crew and essentially exist in service to the Earth. The bugs experience is closer to a nightmare if they were aware of it and the Earth’s experience is positive. This is the difference between positive and negative thinking, consciousness. Because these are essentially negative entities in the Earth consciousness, but this environment, thriving with spirit and life uses that for a positive experience.
Some humans with painful minds, like schizophrenics, but in fairly healthy bodies are most likely receiving guidance and help while incarnated in human form. They could have had portions of their consciousness lost in the experience of insects and that remains with them to work out and bring into their awareness in their human life. This life then for them is still a dream because all expression in the physical is within the imagination of the consciousness (and another positive being is helping maintain the form). A real feeling experience, like human dreams, but felt within the mind because that is where our awareness is. So a being dreamt in a very lucid sense, an experience as an insect. If he expressed it as an incarnated bug form on Earth, then it was made real. The physical here grounds the mind/imagination to a body, not our own since ours is sleeping, but one that does not conform to our imagination, anchoring it in a reality with physical, painful consequences. Within ones own imagination, we don’t experience consequences because we can imagine any problem away and make everything up. Here, others see us, our behavior, and the body reacts to our actions and actual buried thoughts in a painful way.
As all of the stories tell, these human forms were created in the image of ‘God’. God became ‘men’, as in his wariness is attached to these human forms when one is receiving guidance. God is our truth, our own spirit/soul self accountable to the life force energy itself. The ones giving guidance are many, not one. Their reality could be considered God’s reality, the reality where we become our spirits, we become people aligned with our highest expression of joy, mind body and soul. This place is a gift to those striving for awareness, enlightenment. The help we receive here is priceless. Except it doesn’t feel like a gift to most because it is hard work becoming responsible adults aware of our every thought and action. Becoming aware of our flaws and weaknesses and accepting those. Becoming aware of the flaws in others and accepting them. The process is painful. But more painful on our own. We have beautiful life affirming environments to interact with and beautiful works of art to inspire us. Inspired Music touches the soul and puts the mind at peace. It is gifts like this that make it more bearable and let us know we are not alone in this process. We just need to give to receive. Give effort to receive help. Give appreciation to receive it. It is an opportunity and a tremendous amount of awareness is being given at this time to make the process accelerate if we are open to it.
Passionate, resilient, patriotic, industrious, courageous, protective
Conceited, blunt, rude, bossy, aggressive, impatient
I decided to write about the rooster since the one in my flock just got killed, presumably defending some Guinea hens, one of which also died. A hen of its breed was killed a week ago by an unknown predator, but the rooster had no concern. His loyalties were to the guineas.
Since I have gone through flocks of hens and roosters, I’ve had the opportunity to see their interactive dynamics in person. Chickens live up to the impressions of their name. They are scared of their own shadows and will not defend themselves in the event of attack. The rooster stays alert in anticipation of attack and usually dies in a fight. Guineas are supposed to be more aggressive about defense, maybe that’s why the rooster preferred them to the hens.
Some of the behaviors I’ve noticed from the multitude of flocks I’ve gone through (they all perish if they are free range because they cannot stay alive): the rooster struts, he defines the pecking order, he crows all day, he attacks hens of they are doing something he does not approve, he defends against any threat, and he cannot tolerate another rooster around his hens. The hens are docile, fearful, subservient, and not interested in keeping themselves alive.
This energy is the expression of consciousness on earth in its true form. It is consciousness, a being, fully living in the moment, the energy of its spirit. The males are conceited, have no respect for females, strut their power tripping selves to other roosters and all hens, but love combat and will threaten anything that approaches it. In this way, the hens benefit from it attacking a predator. Usually they run free as the predator hauls off the rooster’s body. But when there is no rooster, all hens will be destroyed in the next attack because they do not defend at all. When a predator comes, they run around in terror, not with a purpose, but just away. They are easily caught. These females are as described above and have no ability to overcome their fear.
As I mentioned in the post Types of Consciousness, the human form is used to raise the consciousness of less aware beings. A rooster consciousness is an example. The Chinese have a zodiac describing animal consciousnesses to human beings because some humans match the consciousness. We can see these humans expressing on Earth. They are meant to elevate their understanding and recognition of thoughts as the precursor to how they feel and act and to interact as a human in order to expand their consciousness.
The Chinese zodiac describes rooster consciousness in terms of the potential they have if they develop themselves. However, their proclivity is toward the behavior expressed by actual roosters. All over Earth we can see the type of males who treat women abusively, with absolutely no respect, creating harems for themselves and loving fights while strutting their manliness. Roosters are called cocks for a reason. The males walk around with a virtual hand around their cock at all times jerking off. Cock fighting is a big sport in some South American countries. The goal for these males is to overcome their urges and ego, but temptation drags them down, especially with women attracted to this type of male. Perhaps that is why the zodiac discourages them from matching up with certain types of consciousness. They will only play upon their weaknesses.
If a consciousness, is of a lower awareness, such as that of the insect kingdom or mammal, and is incarnated here in a human form, then that being is most likely receiving guidance. See my previous post on how a guide can be set up.
There is a lot of positive motivational material out there in the material and virtual world. All meant to help us get to a better feeling place mentally and thereby physically. But there are also a lot of people who do not respond to positive reinforcement. They respond to threat of force. What’s going to happen to me if I don’t? This is for those types 😀.
Earth exists as a type of mental hospital for beings who are so mentally dysfunctional, they spend their short lives wondering how to be happy while making eachother suffer. Earth was probably even created by God. In seven days. A place that is beautiful. Full of absolute wonder and beauty to help us achieve a positive state of mind while recuperating in the mental hospital.
The only reason to be here as a decaying human form is to recuperate your mental facilities and wake up from the dream state in which you have been living (see http://bit.ly/1HA2T1t). The state you had been living in BEFORE this life. This life is part of the process of waking up. After death, if you do not do the work, you remain asleep. Asleep means unaware of reality and yourself, but ‘living’ as a dream character.
If you are not an absolutely, completely honest person who is at peace within the mind and body, who only acts, thinks and speaks what aligns with his/her heart and mind, then you are living a story. The story you are living is a continuation of your dream self which found itself ‘living’ as a human again. Many people have come here to help everyone wake up. These people are people channelling, living as incarnate humans and guiding a dreamer who is looking through their eyes and believing they are living this life, or people communicating with current humans through their thoughts and uplifting ‘energy’.
Why this concerted effort to help a bunch of sleeping beings wake up? Bashar indicated the train was leaving. If you are not purposefully on the one you want to be, you will be left behind. So for those who need negative motivation, you will most likely be ‘left behind’. These are the people who pledge to God when they are in deep trouble or really sick, then continue as they were when they recover. They are liars, deceivers, people who like to hurt others. They stop with the use of force. It is why society exists. To protect others from them through the use of coercion.
They are dreaming themselves as characters they create in their imagination. They will never be honest because that means holding themselves accountable for everything they have done. In your state of being after death, if you align with your true self by being completely honest, you will feel the guilt you have accumulated throughout your existence. You feel this as your energetic state. We know it as life reviews. For those that have been very bad, facing themselves is extremely painful. Painful as in a deep self hatred that makes them want to tear themselves apart. To do anything to run away from themselves and not be themselves. It is a torment of the soul. So they ‘fall asleep’ in dreamland, living out fantasies in their mind. These are some of the people that are being helped to wake up. But to wake up, they need to bear the unbearable – being themselves long enough to face all of their wrongs and work through the beliefs and thoughts and feelings associated with each wrong until they are at peace.
These people, or most of them, will never do that. They will never choose to wake up. Being asleep for them means all of their attention is focused away from their actual selves, which is an actual body we may call ‘light body’, a body-mind, into the energy of physical space. Here, their thoughts have density, movement, a sense of solidity. They can actually create an energy body in physical space in the image of their soul self body. This is the biblical, man was created in God’s image, idea. This is the state of being they are in after death, before birth. A false sense of self in a false impression of a body. These ‘bodies’ are only physical energy/matter and subject to the laws of the physical universe, such as mortality. The soul bodies are immortal.
Unfortunately, in their after death state of being as soul bodies focussed into physical space so they do not have to experience or feel their energetic state as soul bodies, they can interact with the human form. Humans are plagued by their energies, their physical, vibrations, which are very negative. These entities are referred to as demons, ghosts, poltergeists. We can feel their vibrational energy as emotions such as fear, crying, anxiety, etc. if given the opportunity, they would love to possess a more positive being in human form. They do this by looking through the eyes and living as if they are the human. The human is plagued with their thoughts and vibrational energy.
These types need to be forced to do anything. They will never voluntarily wake up. There is only one path for them. To follow the ‘energy’ without doing anything. The ‘energy’ of the universe will attract to them whatever is needed for them to have a very negative experience. They can either then let go of life, of looking at the physical, then of being themselves, and choose to not exist or be aware of themselves at all, or to actually do something to change their state of being. But they will be held accountable,
So, to those who are motivated by consequences, you are living the consequences everyday and are spiraling down into a more negative state of being every day that you do nothing to stop the spiral. It takes will. Will comes from your intelligence, your body-mind, the core of who you are. If you have no will power, you have given up on yourself and will spiral down into unawareness or an experience of hell, torment of the soul. You will attract negative experiences that will increase to match your attitude/beliefs until you are forced to decide to stop suffering (or, as theses beings see it, to stop making others suffer) or until you become so weak, you just ‘ let go’ of your focus on the physical universe and are once again with your attention on your soul self and the extreme physical pain of guilt and self-hatred.
When the last train leaves the station after this window of upliftment and effort by others to ‘wake’ everyone up, if you are not on one, you are in for a very negative experience. One woken, people will leave. Earth is a very negative place. Not a place people at peace choose to experience or stay in. They go to ‘heaven’, which is basically far away from Earth and in full awareness of ones self, accepting oneself completely, even if you don’t love yourself. Just accepting yourself and working on becoming respectable while being completely honest is all it takes. So align with your most honest state. Find the most joyful thing you can. Someone will be there to back you up, uplift you, match you in that joyful feeling. Do it now, during this life while the help is here. If you don’t, the consequences will catch up to you and you will last likely face them alone. You can only help those who help themselves.
The only point to a physical, temporary human life is to decide – heaven or hell? Then pick one and go for it. For those who hurt others intentionally, you will be dragged to hell. Hell is a state of mind (see http://bit.ly/1eFujbj) and your mind is very negative. Like attracts like. You get what you give. These are all motivational. Do unto others what you would have done unto yourself. This is a very good guideline. What you do to others, you will end up experiencing yourself. Because you can give yourself the experience, even in the delusional ‘dream state’ that you are hurting others, but when you eventually face your true self, you will experience those memories as if you had done it to yourself. So when you hurt someone else, you are really hurting yourself. Your soul self. The one who is immortal, the one who can only go to heaven. So long as you stay in dream land, you are mortal and you will die over and over. Consequences. This may not be enough to deter, but the energies will take care of it. It just takes time to complete the spiral.
Our thoughts create our reality. For some reason we don’t say that or understand that to mean we create our own reality. ‘We’ makes it seem ridiculous. Or ‘I’. Our thoughts do. So our thoughts are not us. Or my thoughts are not me. If you could say that in your head without a mental smirk, then it’s true. How about ‘my thoughts are me’. Sound ridiculous or have resistance to the idea? Then it’s not true for you. You can try to make it your truth by programming yourself. One technique is to repeat something over and over with positive ‘feeling’ until you believe it’s true. Programming yourself this way, by eliminating an existing truth, one that is not obviously harmful, is a dangerous game to play. Like a blind mind groping it’s way in the dark and making bad guesses on where to go based on what other blind minds are saying. It’s better to stop everything, lay down and cease your physical expression while you listen to yourself and learn what’s already there.
Answer, for yourself, from your own ‘mind’, better, your own heart, questions like,
Who are you?
Why are you here?
What are you afraid of?
Why are you running away?
Do you trust yourself?
Is this you asking the questions?
Do you believe in God? See, http://bit.ly/1Mhh3od
Listen without judgement or expectation to whatever feelings, images or ideas pop up into your head. Act as if God is answering because, most likely, you don’t trust yourself. If you feel fearful at the idea that it is you answering yourself, as if you are someone else looking at yourself, then see it as God.
We are currently experiencing a very limited awareness. This kind of awareness works for those running away from themselves. You can focus your attention into a very dense reality and pretend you don’t exist, except as this person you are. But then you have to die. But then what happens? Do you go to Heaven? Why are you giving yourself the experience of denial of self only to die. An experience of facing non-existence? There is a reason for everything you do. This is not a joyful state. Anyone in this state is detached from themself, as in unable to feel a sense of their own self that exists as ‘spirit’. When the ‘spirit’ moves ‘you’, that is the actual life, the actual being which is you, your actual self. And it feels so far away. And it’s seldom ‘moved’. Any other sensation you feel, especially through these bodies (http://bit.ly/1Nh1dvy ), is the sensation of the vibration of physical matter. The physical universe is ‘energy’ that is unlike the ‘energy’ that we are made of. Like the difference between quantum physics and Newtonian physics. We are quantum, vibrational energy is Newtonian. We are not made of vibrational energy, we just effect it with our consciousness and feel the effects. We can take our attention off of this vibrational space time energy and stop feeling the effects, but we have to recognize ourselves to do it.
We are all ‘connected’. Not because we are the same mind or energy. Physical space is our shared mind (see http://bit.ly/1Id7Dvn). The energy of space vibrates with our communications and we feel eachother’s effects through this medium. We are connected In this way. We are also connected through the ‘heart’. This means, if you listen to your heart, that the word ‘heart’ is referencing our true self. Our ‘spirit’. We are able to communicate through ‘spirit’ which keeps us connected. We do this through our imagination since we are completely disconnected from our sense of actual self. We do not feel our own ‘energy’ at this state of unawareness. But we still have our minds. Because no matter where you go, there you are. You are the awareness, the intelligence, the mind. But you can’t feel yourself. So we have the imagination, which is our mind connected to spirit self.
The imagination is real. If you are imagining things and elements or people within your imagination begin to move on their own, as when you are dreaming, then that is real interaction at the spirit level. You interpretation based on this level of unawareness may be skewed, but the interaction is real. You can use this tool to connect with someone or reconnect with your spirit, actual, self.
Your ‘heart’, or ‘soul’, or ‘spirit’ has desires, especially when in need. It is calling out. These ‘desires’, or needs of the spirit, are heard and answered. If you are not attuned, you may miss the answer to your ‘call’. You may not even be aware that you, the ‘spirit’ is calling. The mind can try with purpose to have a ‘desire’ fulfilled, but the mind’s desires are not answered. They are not your desires because it is the physical shared mind, not your actual mind found within the imagination. The Law of Attraction only works with the call of spirit whether you are aware of it or not. It does not work with the mind. The desires of the mind require work, effort, planning, manipulating and time. All within the laws of physicality, E=MC^2, where shared mind ‘thoughts’ are just vibrational energy.
Try an experiment. Lay down and daydream by letting go of your ‘thoughts’, or your attention on the shared mind. Just observe what comes up. If you sense or ‘see’ a presence or image of a being, then that is real. A real communication at the spirit level. You are always connected to people you love at the spirit level. This is a way you are able to communicate. They are not present, as in actually there, it is just real thought communication, as in psychic communication. So you are never alone. You always have the ability to connect to someone at any level of density, or reality, if they are aware or paying attention like your are at that moment.
One drawback is that if you are currently in a negative state of being, which most people here are, because we are running away from awareness of ourselves, then the energy which you cannot sense, is negative. This effects how people appear to you in dreams, in your imagination. Your negative energy, which you can verify by just observing how you act and think about things without purposefully manipulating your awareness of it, will mean people appear to you as scary images. This is because you are looking through the filter of your own energy. Even a positive, joyful being will appear scary. This produces fear. You are only afraid of yourself, never anyone else. If you face any scary images even as you experience fear, you will be rewarded. You only fear yourself, that is why you are running away. Many of you probably have guides helping, see http://bit.ly/1w9sJWk.
Our fear of ourselves makes us seek unawareness while still ‘existing’. That brings us to Earth. Our history and civilizations reflect suffering. We are in a state of self- imposed suffering. We create concepts like heaven and hell to describe ourselves, our state of mind. We desire to return to being our actual joyful selves (heaven), but are trapped in a state of fear and hatred for ourselves (hell). Earth is the experience of hell. A manifestation of our state of mind. Killing, being killed. Dying, losing loved ones forever. Emotional hell and physical hell. All experienced in our own self-flaggelation. Tons of help from spirit is sent our way through spiritual teachings, chanellingd, our dreams. But we need to decide we are done suffering in order to be receptive to this help. Listen to your inner self. If you feel negative emotions, but are optimistic and feel like you have a positive ‘spirit’, you may be working with a guide. In order to go to heaven with this guide, you need to align with the spirit you feel. The highest joy you feel and follow it.
Most of humanity believes in God. This may be because we are united in our mutual suffering. When all else seems lost, our only hope is that we will somehow still exist and the concept of God makes us stronger. Why do we suffer so much? Is this the role of humanity in the universe? We believe insane, contradictory concepts and don’t think twice about it. We bring ourselves, as a species, to our collective knees and ignore it. Voices cry out, ‘God, why have you forsaken me?’ What does this tormented thought mean? In the era of mindfulness, we are encouraged to examine our own thoughts, but it would also be very insightful to examine the thoughts of our collective mind. It is expressed in the news, in our entertainment, in the behavior of our newest initiates – the children. What are we telling ourselves?
Throughout history, we have consistently played out the same stories and told ourselves the same stories through religion. The idea of God has always been important, and the concept has always been a very strong energetic force in our interpersonal dynamics. We may disagree on the man made rules to follow regarding our relationship with God, but we agree on the basic concepts: defying God will result in suffering, we fear suffering and so fear God, we feel like our lives are out of our control and in God’s hands. But we want to be seen as individuals. We want to be the God of our own lives. And religious/spiritual texts throughout history have explained to us how this is done.
All religious texts tell us we can take responsibility for our own lives and thrive. For some reason, we are unable to do this. The popularity of mindfulness is the latest inspiration to teach us how to do this. The concepts are simple: stop what we are doing, listen to the ‘small voice’ in our heads or heart (our true body), and have faith that that is our true self. Sometimes it’s not. Sometimes it is the voice of God. But this voice that we hear as a ‘voice’ as if another being was talking to us is better interpreted as the voice of God because the alternative would make us feel insane. And we are insane. That ‘little’ voice is ourselves, maybe inspired by God, but our true self. How can we observe a voice that appears to not be us? To really think on this brings us to the condition of schizophrenia and causes discomfort in the mind, maybe even fear.
But thinking of this voice as the voice of God enables us to face this voice with positivity. Get to know it. Align with it until we identify with it and know this to be ourselves. If we really come into the moment and observe how we speak about things, we sound insane. For instance, we speak of our ‘souls’ as if we were an organism that owned a soul. Why would we speak of ourselves like that? We actually see ourselves as separate from ourselves. We are insane. How can this happen. It is the underlying cause of all human suffering and why humanity can’t seem to get past it. It’s why we find ourselves on,our knees at some point in our human experience, crying out to God, ‘why have you forsaken me?’
And God hears this over and over, continuously feeding us instructions, sending us living examples of how to get over our collective dementia, but our suffering persists. We are lost children who expect an entity we call our father, God, to solve our problems for us while we absolve ourselves of all responsibility for our existence. And God is the father who tries over and over to reach us – children on medication, addicted to crack, who he can’t get through to, and who cause him a lot of suffering. This story of our relationship to God is played out in our Earthly lives. If we are going to treat God as a father figure who should take care of us, then we will experience that ourselves until we learn empathy and compassion for him. As parents on Earth, this should resonate somewhat. Our children who insist, against all better judgement, on harming themselves. Who demand love from their parents without giving back, who hold their parents responsible for their predicament instead of accepting full responsibility for their actions.
If you are not a parent, become one to understand what this entity we call ‘God’ has to endure from us. Our relationship with him is exemplified through our family dynamics. Our history is replete with help from him, including this new infusion of mindful information. If we do not stop complaining and use this help, we will continue to suffer and will be forsaken by ‘God’ (which includes the collective of beings that are assisting) because it is not his job to live our lives for us. You can only help those who help themselves. The helpless refuse to help themselves. We can see the futility of this on Earth as we spend a lot of attention and resources helping the intentionally helpless and scorning those who are taking responsibility for their lives. People do this because they identify and sympathize with the helpless. These people also do not want to do the hard work of self responsibility. So their suffering will continue.
We were made in the image of God. But God didn’t necessarily create us. We are beings who are the matrix of mind and soul. We are minds who feel with soul. Our thoughts create our experience. God is the same way. As we become more aware of reality, our consciousness appears to expand. We observe and interact with the energy of the physical universe. Our thoughts vibrate space, creating frequencies that travel, effecting all. As we grow, our thoughts expand, we create and effect more. Some create worlds. Some live within their own imagination. God is very aware and we currently exist within his creation. We essentially are communing with him by merging our consciousness with his mind (consciousness). We are essentially aware in the mind of God, playing with his creations. Our insanity and suffering cause him pain. Like schizophrenia would cause any mind pain.
We exist here manipulating physicality and unaware we are doing so. Our consciousness is different energy than physicality as described in quantum physics. So our conscious energy can overlap. We can share thoughts, including thoughts with the being known as God whom we hold responsible for our suffering while we refuse to take responsibility for ourselves. God is a loving being who chooses to love no matter what. Like we should. He listens to his mind which we callously intrude on with absolutely no consideration for him. Instead, we feel sorry for ourselves. We expect compassion from him without giving any compassion in return. When a mind experiences pain, it works to feel better. Loving beings reject unloving thoughts and feelings they do not identify with. This applies to God.
How does this rejection play out? We are conscious beings as well. Our thoughts resonate space-time and our souls feel. The feeling of our souls when suffering, causes pain to other souls. This pain resonates through the energy of space causing physical pain felt in the body, plants, Earth, anything physical. While we thrash and moan without helping ourselves to end our suffering, we give no consideration to the consciousnesses we are negatively effecting while we expect to be comforted and have our problems taken care of. So God doesn’t want to feel this pain from spoiled children who take and do not give. He loves and to do this, he needs to resonate with loving energy by ignoring or removing negative energy.
The negative energy on Earth has been addressed by sending emissaries, channelling instructions and sending nurturing energy. We are still whining and suffering. Emissaries are beings who have faith in God, are aligned with him as equals, have compassion for him and want to help. They can hear God’s voice and work with his energy. His mind, in attempting to align itself with positive energy, creates energetic patterns that resolve conflicts in his mind. These energetic patterns effect all life, like a calling that influences those who follow energy. For instance, how animals run on instinct and follow energy on Earth. One may be called to attack and eliminate an energy represented by a human or other wise. This is done to align with the preferred energetic state of the conscious being who’s mind directed it. Unaware beings follow energy blindly. On Earth, many have negative energy, so they blindly follow energy that leads them to more suffering. In other words, God, and those aligned with him, is using the energy that is available to remove what is causing him pain. If negative energy is available, then it will be used. More suffering brings people to their knees. Forcing them to examine themselves and take responsibility for themselves. Positive energy, like love, is also used via nurturing and guidance.
Jesus represented love. He was an energy that was able to hear the voice of God and communicate his ideas in a way we could hear if we were listening. He wasn’t so much sacrificed as he was murdered and consumed. Loving energy on Earth is consumed by its needy inhabitants who take but do not give. The people who live off the system expecting the government or society to take care of them are an example of this energy. They consume compassion thereby diminishing it over time because they give nothing back. We symbolize this in the death of Jesus and the consumption of his ‘body and blood’ as if he sacrificed himself. But life and love do not sacrifice, that is the energy of consumption. Those who think love is about sacrifice promote suffering.
To eliminate suffering, we need to take full responsibility for our lives and treat every form of life with respect as if they were in full responsibility for their lives. It is imperative to not help those who will not help themselves. Then they will be forced into full responsibility. Parents know this to be true. Children can say, but you have more, you owe me, you brought me into this world, but they only do this because they prey on the sense of ‘compassion’ and ‘love’ the parents hold for their children. This is dependency and a situation devoid of respect. Without respect, there is no love. We need to begin with respect. To recognize that if we treat someone as if they were not able to do something for themselves, then we have diminished ourselves and God. It is our responsibility to treat the mind of the being we are communing with with respect. He will always treat us with respect by treating us as beings that are responsible for ourselves. Even if that means the energy will bring us to our knees so that we face ourselves and answer to God for our abuse of him.
This is why God can seem both cruel and loving, depending on what you are giving. Give him cruel energy and you will experience cruelty so you can face yourself. Those who have faith in God are those who believe in him and his capacity to love. So they can hear his voice in the voices of other beings and recognize it as him speaking. And so they, if they temporarily lose awareness, as the case in human life, are able to follow intuition with the absolute belief that the universe has their back. Because their faith means they have God’s back. And their intuitive energetic guidance takes them where they need to be at the right time to do what God needs them to do in order for the energy to release the negative or work itself out to empower others, help others achieve enlightenment, whatever it takes to be rid of the negative effects of ignorance. This means that some of these people will appear to be suffering in their human form. Because to have a negative human face their negative energy, someone has to be their mirror and act out their story with them.
So thank God we live once and die and go to heaven. Because for some, life can be torment. Like the story of Jesus so we can see our cruelty and cannibalistic nature. There are many people incarnated on Earth now. Many of them followed a calling. Some from far away, across the galaxy. They are helping to move stuck energy. To release the negative, to help humans see who they are. This means, if we do not choose positive energy and potentials, we will follow the release of negative into suffering. And the important distinctions is made between the body and soul. Choosing positive energy is choosing positive soul energy. This means the body can suffer, but positive energy is being followed and you will remain a positive being. Like the people sacrificed on the news as terrorists kill them. They let the energy play out without attachment to the body so humanity can see the energy of cruelty. If the path of negative energy is chosen, that is suffering for the soul even if the body appears to be living a good life. Let’s consciously choose positive for the soul, even if the energy leads to a scary situation. Following intuition with faith in God means someone always has your back and you will not suffer.
Cannibalism (from Caníbales, the Spanish name for the Caribs, a West Indies tribe that formerly practiced cannibalism) is the act or practice of humans eating the flesh or internal organs of other human beings. It is also called anthropophagy. A person who practices cannibalism is called a cannibal. The expression “cannibalism” has been extended into zoology to mean one individual of a species consuming all or part of another individual of the same species as food, including sexual cannibalism.
Physical matter is energy. E=mc^2. Consuming physical matter is equivalent to the consumption of energy. Energy is consumed because it is not being produced by the one consuming. There is a need for energy or the organism dies. Cannibalism is a definition which applies to the same species consuming itself. Consciousness is all one species. The Earth energetic system is rife with the energy of cannibalism.
Each consciousness should be the source of its own energy. They are not when the energy is blocked. The energy is blocked by the consciousness itself. Beliefs are an obstruction. When beliefs/thought energy is removed, the energy flows. The consciousness, human in this case, acquires beliefs passively or consciously, these beliefs, if not consciously examined, taking a look at the effect it has on the well being of self and others, will be forgotten and fade into the murky depths of the subconscious mind.
Subconscious refers to that part of the mind we are not paying attention to. The beliefs that faded are still the active programs affecting our actions, behavior and emotions. Unrecognized habits and patterns of interaction result from these hidden beliefs. Each belief has a resonance. We are buffered from the feeling sense of the vibrational quality of the belief by the human body. However, the human body expresses our innermost nature by its posture and expression. Observe yourself.
These beliefs block our energy. This blocks the source of our well-being. We then have a need. We fill this need by feeding off the energy of other people, places, things and animals. Pets are sources of energy. Any attachment is a source of energy. What you cannot walk away from is an attachment.
Our emotional dramas with other people are due to our need to feed. Every interaction tells us about our need. This energy has become part of the Earth system as seen in the environment and wildlife. It is due to energy blockage – beliefs. We are not love or expressing it naturally, in a not forced way unless all of our energy is unblocked.
These beliefs are accumulated throughout lifetimes of experiences. We have beliefs in our subconscious unrecognized because they are from a previous life when we were ‘someone else’. So we wouldn’t recognize it as relevant to this life. A ‘lifetime’ in human terms is the reset into forgetting in order to start anew. We are the same person, the same consciousness, the same soul who has experienced many lives in human form. This is all one life for the consciousness (us), perceived as many because the form changes. One could say our form changes because our energy keeps killing it.
We are cannibalizing eachother. This hurts ourselves and all others. This cannibalization plays out in society and families. Parents need children, corporations need consumers and consumers desperately need entertainment. A person feeds off of another through interactions that produce emotion. The emotional. Reaction is their food. It helps feed the energy patterns within their belief systems that are held in place (this takes mental effort). If they don’t feed, if isolated, they have to face themselves, the thoughts that pop up. They are then forced through their own desperate desire to feel better, to begin to eliminate beliefs causing them pain. Without this isolation or will to stop feeding, the person uses someone else or thing to fulfill the desperate desire to feel better.
Life is not supposed to be about suffering or learning through suffering. We, humanity, are suffering because of our self-neglect. We are not taking responsibility for ourselves and the impact we are having on life itself. Because of the mis-management of our own minds. This takes will-power because this world is filled with feel good distractions. Lives go by like watching a re-run unless some extreme experience causes us to take a look at ourselves. What other sentient beings are going to want to interact with consciousness that feeds off of other consciousness? We are fascinated with emotions and the physical feeling of them. We feel ourselves and we can only do this because we are using physical matter within the physical universe to do it. Otherwise, in our true state, we are ‘formless’, consciousness that exists in a reality similar to the dream state. ‘Intangible’.
We are abusing physical matter in this way. Our bodies are physical matter – they are living beings themselves we are communing with. Our negative consciousness belief systems result in abuse of the body, abuse of the animals, abuse of Earth. If we treat our bodies as if we are communing with God through them, with the gift of sensation and emotion, we will be in a more considerate place.
There seems to be a concerted effort to help mankind as expressed through channelling, spiritual masters and incarnated beings bringing in a fresh, new perspective – what you are doing is hurting you. This help is a response to the suffering of humanity and calls for help through prayer. Let’s help eachother to help ourselves. Be mindful of your thoughts, actions and expressions. Be considerate of others. Take a look at what you are doing. Are you feeding?
Humans are hungry for love. Not many experience true love. True love is a soul to soul connection between two people who are their authentic selves with each other. Not necessarily with anyone else. Those who don’t experience true love define love as a feeling within the heart area that is like a push/pull interaction with the one they love. This is a need based love. They give you something that makes you feel good about yourself and it becomes a dependency. If a break up occurs, it really hurts because it is a withdrawal, similar to a drug withdrawal. This need based love is felt as something desirable because of the association to the fulfillment of a need. But the actual sensation is one of pain, like an ache. Real love should feel whole body light and joyous. And be independent of whether it is returned or not.
The reason for this love based on need is the lack of understanding of the body-mind-soul/person system. The need based love is body love. As in, the person’s attention/identity is associated with the body. What they feel in the body, they associate with their soul. They also disassociate from themselves by defining the soul as something they have, aka ‘heart’, instead of something they are. This is also why it is hard to communicate these ideas – because of our definitions of concepts and words. We don’t have souls, we are souls. But we talk about souls as something we have, so I use the terms as people understand them.
Here is a simplistic concept of the way we are integrated into the body-mind system. We are the soul who originates from outside the physical universe. Outside in this case refers to perception. Some refer to us as ‘spirits’, as in, ‘my spirit will go to heaven’. But you go to heaven. You change perspective back to non-physicality when you decide to leave and withdraw attention from the body so it dies.
The body is integrated with a ‘mind’. We see this mind as our head and brain. This mind manipulates thoughts. Thoughts are used to create reality. So the mind is a tool to create reality in physicality. Thoughts are expressions of, interpretations of actual physical energy, and are used to create everything from planets to stars to galaxies. The body is a tool used to interact with this physicality as experience. There are many body types one can have which vary in density and image, but only one mind. The mind is shared by all bodies and the thoughts that appear in it are not necessarily your own. If you are not paying attention to it, then it can be filled with thoughts not created by you (ie by advertisements, etc).
When you think, your attention usually goes to your head where your thoughts seem to be located. This is the mind connected to the body. You perceive thoughts, the thoughts have an effect on you because they reflect a belief you accepted. Your reaction to the thought is felt in the body because that is where you define your emotions and feelings to originate from.
But the body-mind system is integrated, like a complex, organic AI suit (like in the movie ‘Avatar’) to you. Currently we define ourselves as this body-mind suit and our ‘souls’ go to heaven. This is insane. We are the soul. We are the observers in the suit. Our awareness perceives via the body. The body dies when we stop looking. We perceive the thoughts in the head of the body. We have our own thoughts which we do not consciously look at because we are hypnotized by the body, it’s mind, and the movie we are experiencing just like in ‘Avatar’. As we perceive, we think and feel. This thinking is usually hidden from us because we haven’t yet learned to recognize it. When you speak ‘from the heart’, you are speaking your actual thoughts, not the head thoughts. When speaking this way, words just come out. You are not looking at your thoughts in the head for words, they just come out along with feelings. When your attention is fully focused on something outside of yourself, you are speaking more authentically as yourself. Even if you are screaming. That is the authentic you. When you are speaking while watching the thoughts in the head, you might as well be channelling.
True expression of your own thoughts shoukd resonate with your very sense of self, not necessarily your body. You can actually have your own thoughts coming from the heart which disagrees with those in your head. This is similar to the man/woman drama where men speak from the head more often and women speak from the heart more often,
You can connect with yourself via meditative techniques. Put your attention on your heart area, the area that seems to be the source of passion when expressing your true self. Ignore the thoughts in the head and just listen. Thoughts which feel softer can be sensed. That’s you. You feel these thoughts as a sense of knowing and gentle impressions. Listen to this sense to reveal the thought. These thoughts can be felt in the body and effect the health of the body. These thoughts are also translated by the mind of the body, and if you are not conscious of your actual thought, the meaning can be lost in translation. This is due to definitions and associations created within the head of the body due to your education and experience in the body.
So there are three main components: body, the body mind, and you (the soul) interacting, which can create havoc if you are not in conscious control of the whole apparatus. For instance, you can feel a soul connection with someone, and you feel this as a sense of ‘I love this’ without knowing what this is. You just feel a sense of love when that person is around. If your attention is on the body-mind system, then you are aware you are loving something and associate that feeling to whatever it is you are doing or experiencing. If you are beating that person up because you are following your body-mind, as in, that person just looked at me the wrong way and I’m going to teach him a lesson’, your body can feel determined, excited and your heart can feel love. So you end up loving the idea of beating him up, completely unaware that the love felt is due to the interaction with a fellow soul mate. In this unaware state, both souls involved are aware of what is happening. Meaning you and he are aware subconsciously (because you are not paying attention), but not consciously. Both are unaware because their attention is hypnotized by the body, the head, and what they are seeing. This results in karma. Your soul mate hurts because someone he loves (but does not recognize consciously) is hurting him and he doesn’t understand why. The other person also feels bad (guilt,depression) without understanding the real reason why. The head may go into overdrive making up stories to explain it, but in reality, two beings who loved each other just had a painful interaction because they we unaware of themselves. These are people who exist outside of bodies, that remember and actually feel hurt. So the next encounter, whether after death, in another life, will reflect this pain between them. Until they become aware and consciously make up.
This idea is important. Because you can feel like you love something and the head of the body creates meaningless reasons for it based on the context of the body perceptions. When what is happening is you are recognizing someone, know something, etc that you are not consciously aware of – you only feel a sensation translated by the body. Whether it be love, fear, anxiety, etc. We are usually only paying attention to our space suit which translated our actual thoughts and feelings. The we perceive the space suit feeling or thought, look around through the space suit at ‘reality’, make up a reason to explain it which is detached from our actual perception. We, souls, are energy of consciousness which is different from physical energy. That is why we use a space suit. Our conscious energy is connected and we perceive in ways different than the body. To have the body translate our actual feelings and thoughts and perceptions without our conscious understanding results in chaos and suffering. So humanity appears to be insane with lots of suffering to go around. The person in the example associated the subtle perception of a soul mate felt as love within ourselves and interpreted by the body as the sensation of love with the thought in the head of beating someone up. So the loving sensation of a person was associated to an idea in the space suit.
This confusion between body feeling plus body mind thinking and actual person/soul feeling and thinking is duality. The soul, us, is the observer, perceived, programmer of the body mind (head). We are operating complex AI systems which are usually on auto pilot because we fell asleep and now only react without thinking or respond using the head instead of our actual mind. We are like insane people hurting each other without understanding what is actually going on.
HOW WE APPEAR
• The identity I project to the outer environment
• Who I want you to think I am
• The facade
• Ideal for the world
WHO WE REALLY ARE
• How I feel
• Who I really am
• How I am an the inside
• Ideal for self
– Joe Dispenza, “Breaking the Habit of Being Yourself”
The mind is split between loyalty to the ego and yourself. Your consciousness and the ego form the duality. The ego is the you as you define yourself with a body, the I that you compare and contrast yourself against everything that is not yourself. The ‘inner being’ that reflects your true self, or ‘higher self’, is the you that you feel when you look out at life while forgetting yourself. To experience this version of yourself, you would be so absorbed in what you were paying attention to that you are focused on your experience of it rather than watching or feeling yourself experience it. These two ways of experiencing yourself is the duality or split mind.
This split is referred to as the separation. At some point in our existence, we decided to explore, ‘I’, and began perceiving life from the perspective of our own identity. This need to define ourselves, contrast ourselves with all external things and beings is the source of the ego. Our bodies enable us to perceive ourselves. Without them, we would just experience without perceiving ourselves – we would just feel ourselves and explore who we are through interactions with others. The others would perceive us based on their experience of us, but we would not be paying attention to how we appear.
Seeing ourselves via a body has led to a fascination with ourselves to the point where our existence is now defined by defining who we are. Without bodies, or even with a body, but without perceiving via the ego, our existence would consist of experiencing interactions. We would discover ourselves by discovering our preferences resulting from interacting. With the ego, we are not exploring our true selves, we are trying to define ourselves, limiting ourselves by trying to fit ourselves into a pre-defined mold (like ‘I am a person who…’). Without the ego, we would just say, ‘I like that’ or ‘I prefer something else’, not ‘I am that’.
Because of our focus through bodies, we are constantly in conflict between pleasing our ego, or need to define ourselves, and following our highest excitement that aligns with our true selves – the consciousness that perceives through the body. Our minds are split between loyalty to one or the other. Our deepest desires come from our souls, our true selves. Our desires born of life in physicality which sees all as separate, considers only the ego, the ‘I’ you talk about as yourself to others.
This separation is only an illusion to enable us to experience the idea of being an isolated, completely autonomous being. It is an illusion because our consciousness consists of energy that is connected to all life. Consider that we live immersed in the conscious energy of God. This alone connects us to an intelligence that is connected to all life. Whether we perceive it in bodies or not, our consciousness shares thoughts and the energy of emotions with every interaction. Our bodies die, but we live. This illusion of separation and the bodies that make it possible gave us a new paradigm of mortality. Our souls know we are immortal. Our ego knows we are mortal. This is one of the primary conflicts that plays out in religion and is a source of fear.
Giving ourselves the illusion of separation makes us feel cut off from God, Source, the communion with life, the communion with the true selves of every person we interact with. All emotions stem from this conflict with the exception of love. We cannot experience real love until we shed our ego selves. We come closest to this with the experience of having children and loving them without thinking of ourselves at all.
The goal of mindfulness is to return to a recognition that we are not our bodies. That our minds are the source of how we feel. That our minds are only sane if we think as beings that are bodiless, but are just using bodies to perceive physicality, not to define ourselves. To do this we need to interact with our attention fully on whomever we are interacting with so that we are not aware of ourselves – how we appear, who we are in comparison, etc.
To become our true selves, we must essentially ascend from the perception of ourselves as individuals separated via bodies. We must stop identifying ourselves. We must let go and follow our hearts, our souls. This is very difficult to do if you are enjoying life here with your current identity. That is why a rich man finds it impossible to get into heaven and why so few people become ‘enlightened’. Letting go of identification seems like letting go of a distinction of yourself as compared to others. But there are people living among us without ego identification that are unique individuals as examples of how we don’t lose a sense of ourselves. We gain a love of ourselves because we are finally living according to our preferences, without judgement and with love. It is interesting to ask someone who does not identify with the body, ‘who are you?’.
“The ego justifies this on the grounds that it makes you seem “better” than they are, thus obscuring your equality with them still further.”
“Do not allow the body to be a mirror of a split mind. Do not let it be an image of your own perception of littleness. Do not let it reflect your decision to attack.”
‘You dream of a separated ego and believe in a world that rests upon it. This is very real to you. You cannot undo it by not changing your mind about it.’
“The separation is merely another term for a split mind.”
“It is solely a device of the ego to make you feel different from your brothers and separated from them. The ego justifies this on the grounds that it makes you seem “better” than they are, thus obscuring your equality with them still further.”
“Do not allow the body to be a mirror of a split mind. Do not let it be an image of your own perception of littleness. Do not let it reflect your decision to attack.”
“A split mind is endangered, and the recognition that it encompasses completely opposed thoughts within itself is intolerable. Therefore the mind projects the split, not the reality. Everything you perceive as the outside world is merely your attempt to maintain your ego identification, for everyone believes that identification is salvation. Yet consider what has happened, for thoughts do have consequences to the thinker. You have become at odds with the world as you perceive it, because you think it is antagonistic to you. This is a necessary consequence of what you have done. You have projected outward what is antagonistic to what is inward, and therefore you would have to perceive it this way. That is why you must realize that your hatred is in your mind and not outside it before you can get rid of it; and why you must get rid of it before you can perceive the world as it really is.”
“God gave you the real world in exchange for the one you made out of your split mind, and which is the symbol of death. For if you could really separate yourself from the Mind of God you would die.”
“You cannot trust your own love when you attack it. You cannot learn of perfect love with a split mind, because a split mind has made itself a poor learner. You tried to make the separation eternal, because you wanted to retain the characteristics of creation, but with your own content. Yet creation is not of you, and poor learners do need special teaching.”
“In a split mind, identity must seem to be divided. Nor can anyone perceive a function unified which has conflicting purposes and different ends. Correction, to a mind so split, must be a way to punish sins you think are yours in someone else. And thus does he become your victim, not your brother, different from you in that he is more guilty, thus in need of your correction, as the one more innocent than he. This splits his function off from yours, and gives you both a different role. And so you cannot be perceived as one, and with a single function that would mean a shared identity with but one end.”
“Until the “separation,” which is the meaning of the “fall,” nothing was lacking.”
“A sense of separation from God is the only lack you really need correct. This sense of separation would never have arisen if you had not distorted your perception of truth, and had thus perceived yourself as lacking. The idea of order of needs arose because, having made this fundamental error, you had already fragmented yourself into levels with different needs.”
Separation = a detour into fear
The body and mind are co-creators of the physical incarnation of human consciousness. The body decays and dies without the nurturing energy of the human consciousness. You could say it dies when the attention of the human is withdrawn.
The body then is not made of the human conscious energy, but it, like everything within our perception is made of conscious energy. This is what quantum physicists learned when exploring the behavior of quantum particles and have termed ‘the observer effect’. For interesting reading, see ‘The Self-Aware Universe’ by Amit Goswami. What is this conscious energy that we co-create with?
Every human is interacting at an intimate level with conscious energy that is not their own via the body. Call this energy God. It’s as if we exist in the mind of God, the mind of a nurturing being that expresses love through what we perceive as ‘life’. Gurus like Mooji talk about observing your thoughts, stilling your mind and becoming aware of an observer watching the observer. Who is the observer behind the human observer?
To conceptualize, try closing the eyes (and I say ‘the’ because the body is a separate expression of life, not of our own consciousness) and becoming aware of everything around you. Every feeling sense you detect. Expand this awareness to include your immediate area, your block, your town, country, Earth, solar system, etc. This will take use of your imagination, which itself is inspired by the conscious mind of God. This expanded awareness simulates the all encompassing awareness of the conscious energy in which we exist.
Every interaction we have in these bodies is with the expression of this Mind – all of life, including us. We also express with our conscious energy in a co-creative manner. All the time interacting with God. If we open ourselves to this interaction. In acknowledgment that we are sharing every thought and experience we have with another sentient being, then everything has meaning. Everything is potentially an expression of Love. For God it is his expression of his love for life itself, including us. This being is a nurturing energy. Life always prevails and adapts. If we are his creations as well, he is like our parent. We are immersed in his supportive energy, never alone, never unloved.
