Looking back, Looking Forward

Have you noticed how time appears to have accelerated? In fact, everything seems to be moving at a faster pace. Do you ever stop and reflect objectively on your personal journey? I do ask many questions, but that is good. We must think and think deeply to spiritually evolve. For isn't that the reason for our being entombed in a physical body? Today, the end of another year, is a perfect time to review our own evolution as a soul struggling to master limitation. Were the people, experiences both good and not so good and your sense of self receive any enduring benefits or blessings during the past twelve months?

Many of us believe we are invincible...that we can live indefinitely in good health, youth and beauty. Groups of souls keep returning in cycles. When our cycle is over and we leave our bodies behind will we feel that our brief impression on earth was a job well done? Will we be pleased with our efforts? What if you believe in the teaching of reincarnation? If you do, will you welcome the idea of returning to a new skin and not be conscious of your own divinity? The idea of not being fully conscious of spirit identity should bother everyone. Life would be viewed in a totally new way if more of us understood that personal consciousness must be awakened to some degree in order to remember the past and be who we really are.

Do you remember? Are you willing to return to a new body and try again to be what you have forgotten? Are you ready to go through the struggle of soul survival amidst ignorance and distractions all over again? There is a way to avoid the trap of soul memory loss. Wake up! Wake up fully to the inner world. Be familiar and master the inner world. Once you have opened that door, future experiences or lives, if you choose, will be under the control of the Master within rather than the ego without. Today, tonight, the end of another year of chaos all over the world can end for you personally if you decide to wake up and BE who you really are. Why procrastinate? Why suffer? You have been reminded through many sources that you are a co-creator with the One Supreme Creator. You are more than a co-creator. The One lives as you. It is time to accept this truth and live it. May the opportunities in 2009 resonate with your Highest Nature. Embrace the fresh page presented to us right now and fill in the blanks with the desires of the soul.

The Time Has Come

To be certain of our spiritual identity and to be able to actually live it, we must be willing to empty ourselves of everything that works against the purpose of our soul. There is only One Source. To become conscious of the Real meaning of life and to interact with the One Source, we are required to be simple and trusting as a child. Are you ready to do this? How many years, books, lectures and experiences do you require before you empty the lower nature of its distractions and conditioning?

The time has come for us to comprehend more of the Divine Idea and vibrate, think and feel from our Higher Nature. Why continue to search outside of our consciousness? The crazy part of this whole creation puzzle is that the piece called our consciousness is actually a focal point of the One Mind. If more of us really grasped the truth that it is impossible to breathe, create and live without the Higher Nature being in us, the world would certainly be a lovely place to visit.

We are what we believe we are. Why not believe in a higher version of who we are and stop the false belief of separation once and for all? Why keep fighting the obvious? Why keep repeating mistakes and pretend we are something that we are not?
Repetition can be a useless waste of time, words, feelings and action. Why not finally accept our spirit identity right now and hold onto it throughout the new year? We have many gifts. What do we do with the gifts? We may express beautiful truths and even be blessed with the power of healing but the only true art is the acceptance of one's spirit identity and seeing clearly.

Soul Searching

Right now, during the holidays, it is a perfect time to do deep soul searching. I read another blogger's comments several days ago and was quite impressed. She used the word 'certain and 'divinity' in a statement that asked whether we felt we were certain of our divinity. This is a powerful question to ask yourself and would be very helpful if asked periodically throughout the day. At least, this is my opinion. When you delve deeply into this question of certainty, it brings up many other questions and issues.

Most people regardless of their spiritual leanings hope for a better year. Now, with the economy as it is, ongoing wars and many good people without a job, how can anyone hold onto today's catch phrase, "Yes, we can?" Hope is the salve but we still need to deliberately with perseverance take action. It reminds me of the time when I was fifteen years old and visited Southern California with my family. One day, we went to the Farmer's Market and was enticed to go over and get a palm reading by a woman sitting off by herself. She told me at that impressionable age that I was a very old and wise soul. At that time of life, I had no idea of what that actually meant. I never forgot how she looked at me and what she said. What I realized later in life was that the palm reader was not speaking to a fifteen year old girl but to my soul. She was alerting my soul to infinite possibilities that I may not have thought of if she had not been so blunt and seemingly impressed by the lines in my hands.

People and things happen to us during our life that serve as red flags, reminders of contrasts between a higher reality and the temporary drama that we are caught into in this moment. Yes, we can do anything that we dream of but our love and belief, trust and action must do something to make it so. What we can do right now at the end of another year is ask ourselves if we are certain about our divinity. Once you decide one way or another it is then up to you to decide what you are going to do about your certainty. I accepted that I was indeed a very old soul and took this to mean that I had a hidden reservoir of knowledge and direct experience to draw upon when needed. I also believe we are all old souls. It is just that some people don't think, care, bother and know with a certainty that there is a glorious inner ancient splendor waiting to surface brilliantly once again as wisdom and selfless love, our true identity.

An Open Vision

Why not have an open vision every day? With more Light present on earth at this time of change, greater good will be available to souls who care. There is nothing new in the area of truth because truth actually had no beginning. The fact is...more of us are awakening to something good that is beyond the physical senses. As we unfold, we have clearer vision and wider spheres of action. Let the spirit within be your only guide.

The work that needs to be done within is far greater than outside teachers and influences. Many people do not spiritually expand in their understanding and creative ability because they harbor lack of forgiveness for self and others. Perhaps, you will take the time to contemplate the fact that falsity of any form is connected with the outer self of the senses. Sin and falsity belong to accepting division and chaos.

It is said that sin forgiven is the end of sin but not the end of its results. We can change the results of suffering and turn them into good by lifting our own consciousness and then living with an attitude of respect and love for all life.
To experience love one must be ready and yes, obedient. Most people shrink from the idea of obedience. I am referring to the impulses that you receive from the eternal higher part of you, the eternal Self. Listen to it. Love it. Respect it and start living it in a grander way. A higher love is part of our true Nature. When we love fully without judgment or conditions, the inner Christ of us will display its amazing power and presence.

An Opinion about Jesus, the Christ

A blessed holiday to those of you who seek the consciousness of a Christ Mind. This is the Mind that comprehends. To be the supreme man and have at last an enlightened consciousness is slowly dawning in every heart. Humanities understanding has been childlike. Jesus tried in his own way to teach us that the higher understanding is putting Christ on the throne within us. This means accepting our own spirit identity, our own ability to live the inner truth and express the higher power in matter. I believe that is what Jesus meant when he said, when you see me, you see the Father. There is only One expressing in the many.

Jesus tried to help people understand that it is the inner power, the Christ of each one of us, who reveals to man his birthright. God-Man Christ is all in all. The Fall from this understanding is a false understanding and it is still going on today.
People continue to suffer because they have chosen a divided consciousness of good and evil. There really is only one consciousness; it is deep within all the time.

Jesus, in my opinion, did what he could for the times and the people to help them shake off the shadow of ignorance. The idea is for us to become aware as we live in the shadow. Once we really grasp the reality of the true life, the solution to life becomes obvious. We can then with confidence express the greater capacities for a Christ Consciousness while in matter. Why not look at the new year, 2009, as an opportunity to remove the veil and mentally set in motion the healing currents and dwell in the higher knowledge and wondrous love? Let us stop being content to live in the shadow and pain.

Know the God within, the Christ that waits recognition, and thou shall BE.

Call to Growth

Here it is another holiday season. It is particularly enjoyable with the snow and the wild animals making their way to our patio. A smorgasbord is waiting for them. My canary who is placed right near the sliding door always lets me know when the 'wild' ones arrive. I love to write and to share deep thoughts with you although it is easy to feel wholly inadequate when attempting to convey spiritual truths. I have been in mistaken conditions and it consciously took me a long time to fully accept that the form we call ourselves is in essence a remote distant likeness to our real Self.

This is why I write and give you hope and an understanding of who we really are. It is said that no poet can give you his true poem; I believe it. Perhaps, you feel like I do and yearn to be a greater likeness of the Christ spirit.
Growth is simply an expansion of consciousness, remembering and then living the marvelous being that we really are. Heaven is not a place, but an awareness of the Absolute One, the Creator of All. What happens is that we gradually become filled with an all-pervading love. So here we are in matter relearning how to allow a higher love to fulfill itself through us.

The most difficult part of the journey in my opinion is to accept our own divinity.
Millions of us are in different stages of bondage and yet, the door is always open.
I began long ago by being obedient to the impulses of the spirit within. This is not easy because it takes a clear discernment and determination to be able to really know what is a true intuitive thought and what is the lower nature desiring to control. Falsity imitates reality. Many souls worship the Supreme Spirit through Jesus, the Christ.
We require human examples. What he tried to convey to us has appeared to failed in many ways because humanity is still blind, deaf and dumb to the ancient wisdom teachings. It is a very challenging time right now on the material level. Perhaps, if more of us would raise our mind and heart from the deepest darkness and allow illumination to arise, the radiant Light would spread quickly. Walk by the spirit of truth. Keep your heart full of gratitude and love not to whatever you visualize as God but to all men, all life forms. Remember the familiar phrase, Awake thou that sleepest? I bow to the Christ who dwells in you.

Words Fail Us in More Ways Than One

Another day of heavy snow in our area. It reminds me of the various covers we wear over our intelligence and soul. The snow plows will arrive in the afternoon and then tomorrow or another day the covering begins all over again. It has been said repeatedly throughout time that the more the thinking conscious mind strives to express in words, the Supreme One's Idea, the greater and more abject the failure.
Why? Because that which is Science, ideas beyond human consciousness, cannot be expressed purely from the point of the human personality.

Our awakening is a step by step science. When science is coupled with selfless love and devotion to the Source behind the appearance, we get somewhere in the area of true understanding. A strange thing happens to us when we return to the Garden. When the physical personality is subdued and the impersonal spirit breaks through, we tend to be both impersonal in our approach to life and very compassionate and understanding of the stories of others. To be conscious and survive in our earthly mission, it became necessary for us to enter into all conditions of Earth life. To achieve the Idea behind creation, it was necessary to develop a thinking mind and a body capable of expressing the intent of our Creator.

This is a big order because descending souls usually lose sight of their purpose in being in flesh. It is like we are all near-sighted. If we lose the sight that can see the Soul of things, confusion reigns. So, we wear imperfect lenses until the day that the Light begins to shine again on the shadowy mist. According to mystic studies, this condition had to happen for the soul to continue its return to matter. Of course, when the soul forgets, it loses confidence, becomes confused and every type of deception and falsity surfaces. This is the process that is necessary to evolve a human mind and will, a body that will have the strength to eventually return to the Divine Idea. This is devolution and evolution, which eventually lead to BE. To understand the words I write, you must open the higher part of Mind and leap from a human sense of self to the eternal True Self.

So...Here We Are In Form

Humanity left the perfect consciousness and the subtle realms in order to create a physical body and eventually develop it into a vehicle that could again express divinity but in the flesh. This is not so strange when you think of the many ways we create beauty and magic in our daily lives. We also create hardship, loss and limitation through our forgetfulness of purpose. But, the real beauty in the act of desiring and creating is that we can rediscover and regain the perfection we once were right here on earth.

When our senses are quickened we feel the passion and magnificence of the human voice through the high notes of the late tenor giant Pavarotti. I silently sob when listening to him. Have you ever taken a whale boat watch ride? When the mighty whale surfaced near our boat and looked straight into my eyes, I was thrust back through the stream of evolution. What about the wild life coming to our patio door on a wintry day? To feed them is to feed ourselves. There is no difference. We are all one.

My affinity with swans reawakened when I was responsible for saving two of them on a frozen river. Their wings had been clipped and could not fly. Doesn't this story remind you of the human race? Our wings have been clipped through a sense of separation and denial of our true spiritual identity. Through millions of years, the One Absolute Creator has nourished, supported, strengthened and filled the existing life with hope and the will to develop into a perfect medium capable of expressing inner Divine Attributes. We witness the Divine in all stages of life from the spider patiently designing his web to the Black Bear mothering her playful cubs. Yes, we wear a coat of skins but God's perfect Idea, the Christ Energy, lives as us.

The Change from Mental to Mortal Form

The Bible states, "I formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul." Our soul is the Creator's desire. The soul attracted to it the various elements of life substance (dust) and atom by atom, and cell by cell, in time created a mold and brought it into material form. In other words, a psychic outer covering eventually manifested. Once the psychic form was created, the soul, an attribute of God, breathed life into the nostrils (from within) and we made our first appearance as a human being...a living soul.

The idea was for the mental/psychic form to materialize in matter containing all of the attributes, powers and possibilities of the Divine. We have the innate power to use any or all of the attributes. This was the only reason that the Creator brought us into human expression. We are self-conscious beings who looked to a higher Power for inspiration and guidance. This is how it was in the beginning before we forgot our true identity. When researchers write and speak about the Garden of Eden and the Edenic state of mind, they are referring to the original expression here on Earth.

The Edenic state was actually a Celestial or Impersonal Consciousness, a state of mind where we were still consciously One with our Creator. This actually occurred when we were in our first mortal form. What happened after our initial Earth expression was to fall into a deep sleep. A close of a cycle occurred and we are still asleep until that moment arrives when we become wholly conscious of the Divine within. From the highest spiritual perspective, humanity had to experience the Dream condition in order to develop a mortal mind and the ability to desire. Desire and Will supply the motives and power for us to evolve and complete the Creator's expression in matter.

Who Created the Lower Self?

We have been deceived by appearance and yes, many times by incomplete and even false teachings. The more we become conscious of our true identity, the key to freedom, the more we can differentiate the true from the false. We are the ones who have created our lower nature due to our limited and unconscious lack of knowledge regarding what is permanent and what is not. By identifying solely with the conscious mind and the appearance body and thinking that it is separate from the Divine, we continue to energize its power, a false one, as a mistaken identity.

We are the creators who have designed a personality and body through misguided information, false beliefs, selfish pride, ambitions that move us away from our soul purpose and believing that physical power is real power. Again,I am describing the human personality who must be undermined or it will take control with its addictions, fears and attraction towards possessions. It is a satisfying feeling to have monetary security, attractiveness and lovely possessions. I am not suggesting that we should avoid or discard them. What I am saying is that they are as temporary as a snowflake.

What I teach and live is that being entombed in flesh is usually not an enlightening experience until we realize that the lower nature primarily thrives on illusions, which are accepted as reality by the human personality. If the illusions are in control, our separation from the True Self, the Divine Personality, the Higher Nature recedes into the background becoming a vague memory. When we really begin to think about these things, the veils part and the meaning of our existence in matter is understood. What we experience in matter is very real but it is softened and blessed when we remember the higher Nature and focus on the Divine, the Creator of our higher Self.

Expressing our Higher Nature

For the most part, humans are unconscious of their higher Nature. If we were, life would be totally different than what has repeatedly occurred for thousands of years. Very few beings have had the conscious ability and power to express the Divine Idea in matter. How many people actually believe that they are an Angel of Light, a being destined to eventually be a complete expression of the Divine?

Thought as we know it here on earth, time, space and separateness do not exist in the higher worlds of Light. When we originally lived in the subtle worlds we closely resembled the very essence and intelligence, freedom and beauty that we seek now. Our real body is very much like a temple, a Holy Temple. It is indestructible, immortal and perfect. This is our Real body. Much later, the divine part of us came into outer expression as material form.

So, it is correct to say that we are divine attributes of our Creator. Our soul/spirit is an idea of the Creator, one of the attributes used before devolution and later when we eventually descended into matter. This soul or spirit has a subtle body, the image. Expressing it in another way...The Absolute Creator, Great Spirit, the Indescribable expresses through individual intelligence. For the sake of clarity, this essence is often referred to as the I Am, a Divine Attribute. Our soul is also a divine attribute expressing its self both in the subtle worlds of Light and in the lower worlds of matter. Our physical body is the designated temple for the soul while we are in matter. From the highest perspective, our human personality and physical body is not a part of the three, the I Am, The Idea or the Image, only a temporary expression. The three Divine thoughts shaped our image and likeness to the Thinker, God. This may sound confusing at first but the purpose is to impact you with the ancient truth that humanity has been deceived into believing that the Real Self is the one they see in the mirror who is usually self-centered and unaware.

Real Desires of the Heart

Where do real desires come from? Although the Absolute doesn't need anything, desire occurs because that is the way the Creator expresses Self. Desire is a thought. Thinking causes action and eventually there is a result. It is impossible for the human mind to see or comprehend the Absolute but we can grasp the meaning of desires.

Looking at a desire of the heart as an idea implanted in our mind from a higher power is one way of understanding the Divine Self or the Absolute. This is how the Sublime Mind, the Creator, manifests purpose in matter. Pure desires, desires that encourage and build consciousness are actually coming forth from the will of God and expressing through us. If the pure desire comes from the One Source by its very nature it will be fulfilled.

Now isn't it possible that as we become more God focused and balanced that our desires would be of a like minded energy? If so, wouldn't our selfless desire be filled with the Divine Life Substance, a pure consciousness? We would be able to create thought forms that will solidify into a material form. In that case, the visible and tangible form created by our desire would be a living essence of the Divine.

God's Idea

Do you ever think about the results of God's idea? God's Idea of creating matter and then thinking it into perfection is responsible for all life and everything existing animate or inanimate. Of course, the grand Idea has gone through many stages and still is. The sweet part of this great drama is that we, too, can create by thinking anything we desire into an actual manifestation.

For an Absolute One Intelligence, an indescribable cosmic consciousness, to picture in Mind a real Earth, an actual physical place where It's perfection can express and be a reality in matter is mind blowing when we take the time to really think about the Cause, the Reason and the Potential. How does such a magnificent Will express powers of Its Divine Nature? You have heard of angels of Light and living masters and messengers of God's Will. And then, there is humanity who is categorized as the Word made flesh. The real earth and the real intelligence in man only becomes a visible, tangible reality when the higher Love is activated within us. When the Divine Creative Power is generated through an intense desire and passionate love for perfection in humans and life itself, we begin to experience the results of the original cosmic Idea.

Since God Consciousness is the inner essence of all Space and all Life, we really do have hope don't we? Our job is to awaken and accept this fact. When we do, the God Consciousness, Reality, begins to express constantly in our everyday lives. BE-ing is expressing or out-pressing. After I had written my latest book, I could not decide on a title for it. All of a sudden, I heard a loud and strong voice from the invisible realms say with authority, "BE". Be what? Be who we really are

Friday, December 12, 2008

The Divine Idea

If we really think about our thoughts, we realize that they become seeds. The seeds mature and eventually become symbols in matter. When we look at the process of manifestation in matter, everything began as an idea seed. This line of thinking indicates that all inanimate and animate life once was an idea in mind. Ideas are latent and remain unmanifest until we think or speak them into some form or another.

An idea created the invisible world of Light and subtle form. Another idea created the universe of matter. Another idea created nature and the kingdoms until you and I were manifested. Everything on earth could not have existed if it wasn't first an idea of an Absolute Intelligence that is impossible to describe. I believe that as we unfold like the thousand petalled lotus the ideas of the Supreme Spirit, God, will more grandly express through us.

Since humankind is not fully awakened mentally and spiritually, the idea remains only partially revealed. So, we could say that the Grand Idea of the One Power is now in the process of unfoldment in matter. The eventual goal is for us to be consciously aware of the complete idea behind creation. When we are fully aware, we can obviously be a ideal medium for perfection and beauty. The Light of God will shine through our flesh, our thoughts, words and actions. The Grand Idea of our Creator will eventually evolve through everything. This will occur when the ego-personality does not allow anything or anyone to hinder the process of the One Power and One Presence fully manifesting in matter. This is what I believe is the purpose of our be the Divine Love, Wisdom, Life and Perfection right now in form.

Who is the Planter?

Where do the ideas in your head come from? Through personal experience, I know that some of them are planted by friends on the other side. Of course, the entity could also be a mischief maker. This past week I had a very good friend who physically died in November put a thought in my mind to visit a store a half an hour away from my home. It didn't make sense because a new store of that same company is only 7 minutes away from where I live. Because I knew the thought was contrary to my own commonsense, I decided to check it out. I walked slowly up and down the aisles of the distant store knowing that there was a reason I must be there. After I checked out the few things purchased, I turned around and at the far register a woman was checking out who I had not seen in years. I also knew that she was the one who I was sent to see. It turned out that this woman was a long ago friend who had a close association with my friend who died last month. I waited for her to finish and went to her and shared the fact of our friend's departure. She had not known and was very grateful.

This is only one type of seed that is planted in thought by another influential energy. Our own higher Self will plant ideas in our physical brain that It would like to see manifest in our body, mind and intellect. The ideas will ripen and manifest if we will let them. Once we awaken to the idea that our own higher Self is fully capable of planting productive ideas in our brain, we are able to harvest the wisdom that is planted.

I am well aware that we sometimes have difficulty discerning if it is the human thinking and desiring or is it a higher source who has a grander view of what is good for us or what action needs to be taken. When you think about scripture, you will remember that God's Word is referred to as occuring in the beginning. All things were made by him. Wouldn't it benefit us to learn how God's Word translated is the word that comes frequently from our higher Self, which is an extension of the sacred energy into form?

Start with a Good Idea

How do we get an idea to materialize? How do we attract, direct, shape and mold conditions, things, events and yes, ourselves? Change begins with a good idea. We need to really focus and think about the idea. Included in the focus is a strong desire. When we speak about the desire, it gives the idea a greater energy. The idea will eventually become a visible manifestation.

Look back in your mind about how you have already proven this line of creative process. Literally, everything we have thought deeply about manifests some point along the way. Now, imagine if you really believed that you are the Absolute One, God, The Great Spirit using a part of Itself in your body, mind and soul, there would be no doubt, limitation or fear. If this fact became your living truth, you could do about anything. The key is in allowing the inner voice, the true wisdom, to direct your thinking and your desires. Let the presence within who certainly knows more about you and your thinking conscious mind be in charge.

According to mysticism, it is not man who does the thinking. It is the higher Self, the spirit of man, who thinks through his organism. Well, you are probably puzzled because you know your thoughts are not always loving or lofty ones. Each one of us is a watered down version of the One Power and Presence. How we express ourselves is totally dependent on how much we are aware of the Real One Power and Presence and listen to its guidance. In other words, the individual must be awakened to a realization that there is a Selfless, Wise and Loving power who is the real Thinker within and not only the selfish ego who has troubles and is confused. Once we 'get it', we will deliberately develop a body and mind strong and clean and capable enough to express the higher Self perfectly. It is then that we magically create the desires of the heart.

Thinking and Creating

Who do you think is doing the thinking and creating? The mystics emphatically state that the lower nature, the human part of us, does not do the thinking. The ego doesn't because most human thinking is not in the correct sense of the word actually conscious thinking. Consciously thinking is the key. This is a contradiction to what is judged normal. Our thinking is referred to as unconscious thinking because the typical human is unaware of the presence of Absolute Intelligence, the Divine Energy within himself.

Scripture states that we are the image and likeness of God. Because the divine energy is our true identity, we actually already have all the faculties and power available for our use. The problem is our being oblivious to the fact that we are usually involved in error-thinking. How many humans actually understand that the mis-thinking or sense of separation from the One Power and Presence has drawn us away in consciousness from the reality of who we really are?

Mortal consciousness thinks and believes it is doing everything on its own. This is only an appearance. One of the purposes of the Divine within us is to fulfill the law of creating. A thing seems real to us, good or bad, because we are thinking or believing it is so. Other people may see a situation in an entirely different way.
How can we do real thinking? How can we bring about change and stop being fooled by appearances?

Focal Center of Consciousness

Many of us realize that the Divine Self, the real us, is our personal version,a watered down consciousness. It doesn't need to remain in a weakened state controlled by human misconceptions. We have also been told that each cell in our body has a consciousness and an intelligence of its own. We can only continue existing or working intelligently through the activity of this higher Intelligence. So, who is the directing intelligence whether it is done consciously or unconsciously?

Who is this Intelligence? Most of us take for granted the gloriously constructed physical body we call our own. As a human, we can respect and honor our body by feeding and caring for it with good choices. We cannot as humans consciously direct or control a single cell of our body unless we enter into the consciousness of the Immortal Spirit Identity who we eternally are and have forgotten. Disease and death exist because people have not connected to the higher Self to the degree where the lower and higher nature work together as a team.

Cell consciousness is common to every body in matter regardless of size or form. Within any body is a consciousness that is a builder and entirely Impersonal. Within the Impersonal is a consciousness, an intelligence and a will. It is this same directing Impersonal Consciousness, intelligence and will that exists in all life. Understanding this truth, we realize what oneness really means. The Impersonal Absolute Energy and the personal spirit energy that we refer to as our higher Self cannot be separated except through ignorant thought.

What is Life?

Radiant Life is the energy which animates the body. It causes us to think, feel and act. It is the Spirit, the animating Cause of our being. This animating Cause is what creates and sustains all life regardless of form. Life is a threefold Force. It is given many names but to simplify the energy let us call it wisdom, love and power. The three are the manifestation of the Radiant Life in form. Everything that exists manifests and expresses some phase of the three aspects of Divine Life.

This Force is in the heart of everything, including nature. There is absolutely nothing that does not have the One Infinite Reality as part of it. Minds who profess they are separate from the Force are only fooling themselves. It is their personality denying true life. The human personality thrives on illusion. The Intelligence animating all living things in the universe is the Real us. Humans are caught up in the shadow world causing the True Self, the animating life force, to be watered down, thinned out.

Once we begin to remove from our mind all the human misconceptions, ideas and opinions, the True Life is given a chance to express freely. Finally, the mind and soul recognizes that it is meant to be a focal center of a Divine Consciousness, which is Light.

How Do You Know Who is Speaking?

How can you be certain if the words in your mind are from the higher part of you when asking for counsel? To quiet the human mind and body and center yourself would be an obvious answer. There can be times that you do that very thing but are misled because your emotions are in control and you are not centered although you think you are. Often the human personality gives the answers that we wish were truth. The process of receiving correct and helpful counsel is increased when we pay close attention and trust. Even then, mistakes may be made because you have not learned to be still.

The first test to receive true counselling is the acceptance of the Real You, the higher Self. The majority of people think of themselves as the intellect and body. The intellect and physical body are not the awakened consciousness. The key to success and contact is to feel and know the Divine Self within. In times of great stress, the message that always comes to me is 'Be still! 'Be Centered! Know, I Am the Real You...God in form'. It may take you stating and thinking these thoughts a thousand times a day before you realize their potency and actually believe them. People tend to intellectualize thoughts regarding spirit identity and fail to allow the truth to penetrate deep into the soul.

When you are relaxed and centered state the words, "Be Still" to everyone of your cells. If you do this with love and persistence, you will taste the power and presence of the Real You. True help and companionship will naturally be with you. An amazing activity will take place whereby the higher Self will take control and do whatever needs to be done. I will never forget the time when I was sitting at my computer sad and troubled. I was actually looking at a blank 'write' page before sending a message to a friend. As I sat staring at the page, words suddenly appeared on their own from an invisible hand. The message said, "I am Peace".

Undermining the Personality

I have the gift of seeing, hearing and feeling the personality of another soul after it has crossed over into the subtle worlds of Light. I always find it amazing how similar the personality is after death to the temperament it expressed while in the body. From my understanding, the personality from the life the soul recently dropped remains with it until it is ready to move on to higher vibrations or descend again into physical form. Once the pull to the old life wanes, the soul begins to express more of its true personality, which is a culmination of the strengths of all its past personalities.

There is also a very different authority at the same time. It is a Divine Personality that the evolving soul gradually through life experiences recognizes and accepts as its own. Before the union occurs, the human personality will rebel because it generally is proud of its individuality and doesn't yet recognize its true higher Nature, the Divine Personality. The human personality is needed to develop a strong mind and body, strong enough so it can eventually reach a point in conscious awareness where it is prepared to know the higher Self. Once we recognize the authority of the higher Self, the undermining of the temporary human personality begins.

People often assume that it is the human personality who desires to spiritually evolve. It is not. It is the hidden mystery, the real Divine Personality within who makes the decision to come out of hiding. It is actually this higher Self that is leading us through all the nonsense and illusions of the human personality. This is the ancient method used to awaken the soul to the unreality so it will turn to the one and only Reality.

The True Bread of Life

The Bread of Life is You. It is the part that knows all things...your higher Self. It is the part of you that responds to truth, beauty, joy and Light. It is this part that is your real Teacher. The Divine Self will bring you clear messages regarding all the things you need for your physical, mental and spiritual growth and happiness. Whenever you resonate to words of another, it is but a confirmation of your inner knowing.

Your higher Self is not your human mind, neither is it your intellect. They are only outward phases of your human personality. The higher Self, the spirit of you, is an expression and extension of your Divine Impersonal Spirit. The goal is to understand this truth thoroughly and live it completely. When we step away from the domination of the human personality, we free ourselves from further entrapment.

So much of what we define as us are the thoughts, belief systems, and personal opinions of others who are also threatened and struggling. The biggest problem is the personality who fights the truth of who you really are. The Divine Self has always been with you. If you have not yet achieved understanding of the significance of your true Self, you will not know the Presence with confidence and an ever deepening love. Would you like to consciously know your real Identity? Are you ready to embrace the mystery and cross the bridge of separation, limitation, doubt and fear?
