I don’t particularly like ruffling anyone’s ego or embarrassing myself. But this powerful allegiance to truth burns in me and makes me wiling to expose the illusions that play in the mind, just as spirit beckons me to do so.
It takes a lot of trust to live out my calling in the manner I’m guided to do so, but I continue to keep faith in God and let go of all outcomes.
One of the gifts I receive from this way of Listening is a deepening sense of contentment within myself….and I wouldn’t trade this gift for any illusion, no matter how grand it may appear to my senses.
The self is God, projected as an individual through the construct of mind. Perception creates the illusion of separation, thus enticing God’s individually focused awareness to re-create the ‘original sin’ – belief that separation is real.
Doubt is a blessing. It presents a question, the acceptance of which leads to a deeper knowing of who ‘I AM’.
The self is totally comprised of thought, thus the one who thinks they are a self lives according to the limitations created by the doubts they hold for their self. In this way, self identified individuals become more doubtful as they accumulate life experience.
A habit of doubt is created and perpetuated by resisting aka judging and repressing doubt, while embracing doubt as it arises leads to its resolution – not because anything was done, but because detached awareness naturally resolves the subconscious foundation of whatever dissonant thought pattern is being observed.
Instead of allowing doubt, the ego may scream that one ‘should’ use faith to replace doubt, but ‘should’ itself is the language of doubt. It’s all God, and ‘should’ says that something about God needs to be ‘fixed’.
Trying to limit doubt by covering it with faith is really repression. In this way, the shadow of doubt expands in the subconscious and projects doubtful experiences thus reinforcing the illusion of separation – which is the source of all dis-ease.
In the moment one remembers ‘who they are’, doubt immediately disappears. However, remembrance cannot occur while doubt is present because the foundation of doubt is belief in separation. Acceptance bridges the gap, and allows remembrance to ‘happen’.
The material self is nothing but energy projecting form. That energy is the source of all awareness and the creator of every individual reality. Our true identity is the energy behind the projection of form, while the material body and personality represent that energy as it has been filtered by ego (individual sense of self) through the layers of mind.
Energy creates every individual form out of nothing but thought, and energy experiences this time-space reality through the individual’s awareness – even the blade of grass is a depiction of energy having an experience from that perspective. The creator aka God is not separate from any individual field of awareness (energy projecting a life form), so in essence every individual is God – both having a unique experience through their perception and projecting for the future with every thought.
Peace is the expression of Love, and Love is the essence of God. Biblical references to the sword of God are parables that point to the death and destruction humans create by continually following thoughts of dissatisfaction. These thoughts separate our awareness from the essence of God, and in Aramaic (the original language of the bible) that separation is the definition of “sin”. “Sinful” thoughts command the creative force to manifest every variation of what we perceive as punishment or dis-ease in the world.
All is created by God – thus all killing, starvation, cancer and other disturbances perceived in the world are also the action of God – which is always perfect based on all thought that has come before. In this regard, it’s the responsibility of every individual to keep imagining the reality that they desire and stay focused thereby in order to shift the energy of the creative force in the direction of the Soul’s desire to experience its true essence.
It takes great courage to project thoughts of peace in the midst of perceived chaos, but each of us embodies the source of all power; and as we become more expressive of that power, Peace and Love are created through the particulars of our lives – giving evidence that we are walking the path of the eternal Self – and no longer creating from mental limitation.
There is nothing to do but follow but the soul’s subtle guidance toward stillness – delivered through feeling – where individual awareness is merged with Godliness and eternal peace prevails. We are truly blessed!
Jesus is a being in existence who had a life experience, while God is existence itself. Just like all people, Jesus was both human and being. Our human aspect is created and sustained by God, while our being aspect is God’s presence. Without both aspects, there could be no life experience.
God is the same one who creates, sustains and observes the experience of everything in creation. Everything that is not human is perfectly comfortable being unified with existence, but the human ego is so attached to the physical/material self that as soon as our minds develop beyond infancy, we have great difficulty seeing ourselves as anything but separate from God, each other and everything else.
The entire material world exists in our perception. Our material self aka ego determines which experiences we will have based upon the thought energy we project, while our spiritual aspect observes and orchestrates the events and circumstances of our life for the highest and best interest of our being (which is not separate from existence).
Notice that according to the Christian belief system, Jesus is God. Thus seeing Jesus in anyone would be the same as seeing God in them. Even this belief makes it plain that our inner essence is God – but the manipulative mind keeps us so bound to delusion that we cannot see the true reality even when it is in plain sight.
It is this delusion that is the cause of all conflict amongst humans and between humans and other aspects of nature.
Jesus was a human who allowed his inner essence to be expressed more fully than most humans allow, because he developed his inner vision to see beyond mental illusion. In order for Jesus followers to get beyond mental illusion, they must go beyond what they know of Jesus and access their inner essence. I’m sure Jesus was a great guy, but to follow him is really only following a mental concept of him – which is illusion, and we remain bound to illusion as long as we limit ourselves in this manner.
As long as we keep ourselves bound to the illusion of separation, our egos continue to project for what we consider “punishment” for our shared reality – while our spiritual aspect Joyfully creates the manifestation of whatever the ego projects. However, when we achieve the level of awareness whereby the ego recognizes our spiritual aspect (aka Godliness aka God essence) as our guiding Light, we are able to see and understand the mental patterns that create blessings – and send our thought energy there to create Heaven.
Until such time, religious believers and non-believers alike will continue to hate what the ego has created while projecting for more hateful manifestations in the world.
It takes great courage to be who we really are, but the benefits speak for themselves and they become readily apparent in our lives. Allow the real You to have presence in your life, and command creation accordingly.
You are the God of Christianity or whatever God you choose to exalt. The energy that gives life to your physical form is the One that all religions call “God”.
The self that you refer to with disdain is not your real Self, but your self image. Your real self is the Being that transcends your mind and witnesses all of your experiences with complete Love and patience as your ego matures enough to recognize what’s true in you.
As long as we identify ourselves as the mental patterns we have been conditioned to follow, we create our own punishment. But we can choose in any moment to unify with the Self that is Unconditional Love, and start creating blessings for ourselves and for the world.
It’s absolutely true that the essence of God does not change, but the experience on Earth most certainly does depending on where we are situated in time and space.
Those changes are effectuated by God in direct response to that which we are projecting for. Many of us rely on religious texts written thousands of years ago, translated from different languages, and modified for our experience of God.
But the Divine can only ever be experienced in the here and now. For us humans, that means direct connection to our core consciousness – where the Word of God is ever present.
