The silent voice of wisdom

The still small voice. The still small voice… of silence. Awareness does not speak, there is no form to speak.  Awareness is formless.  In consciousness there is only consciousness. “We” discover what “we” are the awareness aware of awareness. We are like an eyeball that can’t see itself but is very aware of the presence…

Resistance to what IS

Life has a flow.  Life is living.  We are life...not the "my life" we've been conditioned to believe in.  No, the eternal life we are.  Life moves and conforms and changes and finds a way to its infinite oneness.  It's like a stream finding its way down the mountain, into the river and ultimately into the ocean.  Life finds a way around the rocks and through the gorges.  It carves a path through the deltas, merging with more and more of itself.

Life is consciousness finding itself.  It is awareness becoming aware of awareness.  It is divine waking from the dream.  It is form realizing the formless.  Consciousness, unconscious as form, becomes conscious of consciousness.  Every turn, every bolder, every twist and rapid and waterfall is opportunity for the awakening of the dreamer from the dream.  Once awake, the form enjoys the ride down the stream, into the river, finding peace in the vastness of the ocean.

WE are that life, that extension of the formless, that consciousness, that awareness.  We are not just our form.  We are not a person living a "my life."  We are the observer of eternal life as a form experiencing the form of formlessness.  We are the stream, the river and the ocean.  Our form is on a journey of discovery, experience and awakening.  We are waking up to life.  We are waking up to what IS.  As a form we might say we are like this paper boat traveling down the stream:

Dying to live…

When the ego is constricted or constrained or squeezed, it will respond.  The ego's job is to respond to conflict in order for the biological unit to survive.  Consciousness focuses its attention on the form and through the form.  "God" can't help but willingly give "himself" to the identity of form because "God is love."  The dreamer looses himself in the character of the dream.  Like the prodigal son story, the father willingly gives himself (his inheritance and identity) to the son so the son can take his journey of discovery to find himself as the son of the father.

When the ego or the false self or the illusory identity is constricted the response is to either grow stronger as an ego (the sun is still resisting the gravity within) or the ego will collapse (gravity wins and a Supernova is born).  Many who have awakened did so as a result of great tragedy or trauma or fear or collapse of their egoic identity.  The stronger ego will continue the cycle until it collapses (maybe in another life or just prior to physical death).  With the collapsed ego, awareness emerges through the physical form as the "light of the world" Jesus described.

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.

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)

Fantastic Voyage

Divine consciousness, which is the essence of all things, emerges as form from formlessness to become all that there is and we experience form as this divine consciousness in the objective world.  Too deep?  OK, how about God is having a dream and we are the characters in this dream?  Still too far out for your brain?  Well, it should be.  Ultimate reality is "too far out" for our brains.  Our logical, conditioned and limited minds can't comprehend the formless.  But our true nature as awareness itself can not only perceive itself but know that it is the knowing that precedes the thoughts of knowing.  Still too much?  OK,  how about a fun pointer to what you already "know" to be true?

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.…

Flesh and Spirit: part 2

Rom 7:18 For I know that nothing good dwells in me, that is, in my flesh. For I have the desire to do what is right, but not the ability to carry it out. (ESV) My flesh is weak. My spirit is strong. My flesh believes a lie that “God is against me.” My flesh is…
