Pointers to the formless: BOREDOM

To be awake is to be free of the dream. To be enlightened is to live as a transparent form emanating the eternal light from within. To be conscious is to be aware of the awareness you are. To be free is to no longer identify with ego and discover your true self.

We use words like transcendence and transmutation and transfiguration to describe in concepts what is the emerging of the formless within the illusory world of form. We let go of our identity with form, ego, body, mind and the person. We wake up to see the form, body, mind and person as manifestations of our true self.

Jesus described this awakening of consciousness as being born again. Isn't that description appropriate for waking up, being enlightened, becoming conscious and finding freedom? We are born again of water (entry into the physical realm) and spirit (awakening to the true self). Jesus described awakening as salvation. The word he used in its various forms was "sozo." This word means "to make whole."

The Schism Within – Part II

I couldn’t resist a part II.  There are probably many more to come but for now…enjoy. Remember those days of the “great before?”  You know, when you were a kid free to be a kid without grown-up stuff.   Go way way back when you would play for hours in all those imagination moments on distant planets…

Happy Birthday, 2 Years Old!

This month Alancetotheheart is two years old.  Wow what a journey it has been.  342 posts later I can say much has changed and much has stayed the same.  That sounds pretty cliché I know but let me see if I can explain. When I started writing I felt like the “great defender of God’s…

A Great Mystery

2 Cor 5:14 For the love of Christ controls and urges and impels us, because we are of the opinion and conviction that [if] One died for all, then all died; (AMP) This is a great mystery…one died for all then all died.  Something so profound happened for us and TO US when Jesus was incarnated,…

Poles and Snakes

John 3:9 Nicodemus said to him, “How can these things be?” 10 Jesus answered him, “Are you the teacher of Israel and yet you do not understand these things? 11 Truly, truly, I say to you, we speak of what we know, and bear witness to what we have seen, but you do not receive…

The truth will set you free

Help me in my unbelief.  That is what the man cried out when he wanted his son healed.  Here is a bit from that passage: Mark 9:22 And it has often cast him into fire and into water, to destroy him. But if you can do anything, have compassion on us and help us.” 23…

Fearfully Remade

This has been a “fearfully remade” journey of excitement and anticipation.  You should check out the last two posts if you missed them.  We have been on an exploration of the “fear of the Lord.”  If you have been keeping up you should be feeling much better about the “fear of the Lord” and ready to put to bed…

Faith Test

I was thinking about why there seems to be all this schizophrenic, bi-polar, old-versus-new reasoning when it comes to understanding the nature of God.  To every born-again child of God, it is clear that Jesus is love and is God’s expression of love.  Jesus came to reveal the true nature of God to us. When we…

Spirit of Cain

1 John 3:12 We should not be like Cain, who was of the evil one and murdered his brother. And why did he murder him? Because his own deeds were evil and his brother’s righteous.   Ouch!  What do we do with that? Remember we need to use our “mind of Christ.”  God is love.…

THE six step program

I have asked myself before and people have asked me this question: “If all this is true why do I still have XYZ in my life?” XYZ = pain, suffering, broken relationships, hurts, hang-ups, addiction, pride, hopelessness, guilt, shame, anger, strife, division or whatever else is your “thorn.” (Check out Infamous Thorn) I’m going to…
