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."

Going Beyond the Prism

Matt 6:22 Our perception is what guides our physical form. If we perceive from the truth of unity or oneness then our physical form is guided by oneness. If our perception is lost to a separate-self illusion, then our physical form is guided by unconsciousness. If our guide is unconsciousness then we are lost to unconsciousness. We can’t entertain two guides. We will hate one and love the other or be devoted to one and reject the other. We can’t be guided by eternal truth and the illusion of forms at the same time. (LLT)

Salvation and LJT part two

Do you ever ask the question “why am I here?”  Do you wonder about why things are as they are?  Don’t you think about how all this comes together?  Don’t you ponder what happens in the next life?  Maybe those questions are too deep.  Maybe they aren’t.  But I know everyone reading this post has…

Salvation and LJT part one

In the last few posts I have attempted to set the stage for many posts about Lena and Judy and Trudy (LJT).  I believe these characters give us tremendous insight into who we really are and who we were intended to be and how this life on Earth is about discovering ourselves. Our divine origins…

Rewards in Heaven???

Mat 5:12 Rejoice and be glad, for your reward is great in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who were before you. (ESVST) Why do we read this verse in its negative contrast?  What I mean is why do we say that the reward is conditional on the suffering?  Here is another question: why do…

Past Present Future

“Salvation” isn’t an event, it is a continuum of encounter with the one who saves…Jesus.  It is a product of relationship.  It is a precursor to relationship.  It is a culmination of relationship.  It is a past, present and future reality.  It isn’t a contract.  It isn’t a get out of hell free card.  It…

Wrong Obsession

Why are we so obsessed with hell anyway? I believe our sin obsession is tied to our hell obsession. If we believe sinning puts us in hell, then we need to stop sinning or find some way to have our sins covered so we don’t go to hell. We need to make others afraid so…

Fallen Logs

Mat 7:1 “ Judge not, that you be not judged. 2 For with the judgment you pronounce you will be judged, and with the measure you use it will be measured to you. 3 Why do you see the speck that is in your brother ‘s eye, but do not notice the log that is…

Jesus Evangelism Part II

Jesus didn’t die to pay for our sin, He came to take it away.  Sin is a product of a fallen nature and a fallen world.  It is like a disease that needs a cure.  It isn’t something that is forgiven day after day with confession after confession.  That is just another bondage to another…

Flesh and Spirit: part 3

Rom 8:6 For the wisdom of the flesh is death; but the wisdom of the spirit is life and peace. (Douay-Rheims Bible) Col 3:2 Set your minds on things that are above, not on things that are on earth (ESV) I have to be honest and say this series about flesh and spirit is a challenge…
