The Journey


A glimpse of enlightenment is only the beginning. To be our true self is to be nothing, embrace our emptiness and express divine grace as a human form. We are the paradox of emptiness in form and form in emptiness. As Christ consciousness or Buddha nature (or a myriad of other accounts), we are the miracle of life itself. Good and bad, high and low, happy and sad are all expressions of this one divine consciousness. Living is to experience our essence in all its forms

A new world…


"The world as it appears to us now is, as I said, largely a reflection of the egoic mind. Fear being an unavoidable consequence of egoic delusion, it is a world dominated by fear. Just as the images in a dream are symbols of inner states and feelings, so our collective reality is largely a symbolic expression of fear and of the heavy layers of negativity that have accumulated in the collective human psyche. We are not separate from our world, so when the majority of humans become free of egoic delusion, this inner change will affect all of creation. You will literally inhabit a new world. It is a shift in planetary consciousness. The strange Buddhist saying that every tree and every blade of grass will eventually become enlightened points to the same truth. According to St. Paul, the whole of creation is waiting for humans to become enlightened. That is how I interpret his saying that “The created universe is waiting with eager expectation for God’s sons to be revealed.” St. Paul goes on to say that all of creation will become redeemed through this: “Up to the present. . .the whole created universe in all its parts groans as if in the pangs of childbirth.”

Collective Resistance to what IS


When the collective consciousness of humankind is lost to the egoic illusory identity, it resists what IS in a powerful way.  We become very busy beavers.  We are judging everything as acceptable or unacceptable based on conditioning and a separate-self illusion.  It can take the form of inserting so many boards into the stream we create a dam.  We stop the flow of the stream of life in an attempt to control the stream of life....

Our collective consciousness dams are our structures and organizations and paradigms.  They take the form of religion and political parties and even nations.  We will dam up with intensity to try to change the flow of the river.  Consciousness is lost to the illusion of the dream and is trying to change the course of the dream when it doesn't remember it is the dreamer.  The flow of life brings opportunity for the form to awaken to the formless.  Along the life cycle of the river there will be droughts and dams and flood stage flows.  So even the dams, the egoic insistence on control, the resistance to what IS, will create a sanctuary for consciousness to survive the illusion of the dream.  At some point, the flow of consciousness increases and the dams are broken.  The flow of life returns to its natural course....

The River of Life


It all begins with a rain drop that finds a stream or a river to take it to the ocean.  Consciousness takes form and form is shaped by life.  When form flows in concert with the river, it becomes more aware.  The consciousness that manifests as form is form so that it might experience the river of life.  Consciousness takes form to have the experience of the river.  When form is aware, it is like the rain drop that is one with the river.  When form is asleep, consciousness is lost to form and it thinks it is something other than the river.

The Life of a Coin


The ONE life is like this coin. The eternal life manifests as good and bad, black and white, tall and short, ugly and pretty. Our acceptance of these manifestations as the ONE life allow us to experience the ONE life as the eternal life. The total acceptance of all aspects of life is the love that is our divine nature. It is the love that is the light that we are.
