Communication Lines

On November 7th, 2017, posted in: Evolution, Nature, Spiritual, TheHeart by

Sometimes the winds of life can make it seem as though we cannot communicate when it is just that we are temporarily ungrounded!  Its is not that we cannot communicate, it is that we have to SLOW DOWN and feel ourselves rooted in the earth.  Slowness begins one of the most simple and powerful healing processes in life.  Take a few deep breaths and begin your healing moment for today!

YOU!

What a wonder, what a wonder you are!

Here you are, reading this.  As I write these words, they come forth, arising with a sense of orderliness from “somewhere” within and perhaps outside of me, then put into other shapes by using my fingers to touch or say some “thing,” putting other shapes on what looks like paper but is nothing more than a floating hologram which puts them into another shape for you to read!  My “thoughts” which are not a solid object such as a stone, are transferred to other shapes, then travel through the air and arrive where you are anywhere in the world.  And then you see them right in front of you, they register inside you, and your eyes, brain, etc., translate them, and then fit them together to sense something that started “over here” within me as thought bubbles, and you create your own pattern of thought bubbles, interpreting it uniquely.  If that is not one of the most profound magic tricks in the Universe, I don’t know what is!!!

What a wonder.

The physical plane is quite magical when we slow down to feel the awe of even existing, being able to organize and send a perception to another somewhere out in the ethers, let alone all the other things we can do, sense or think.  How does this all happen?  What finely tuned structures, elegantly developed for us to “use” these are!  They were born before we were, before we come to exist here, and we ‘slide into them’ when we are arrive and we leave them when we let go of it all at the end of our lives.

We truly do not know what anything is or where it comes from. We cannot think ourselves into knowing it.  It is a mystery, one that has been with us throughout all of time.

SLOWNESS and being able to pause, and rest with our ” perceptual tools” to sense-feel what we are ‘in’ is divinely magical.  And to even be able to sense-feel at all, what is that all about?!  Look at you, reading this, moving a construction of cells we call eyes, absorbing the shapes!  Look at you, it goes somewhere in your head and you “do something” with it and then create shapes of thoughts that are apparently not even stored in your head!

What is this, what is existence?!!!  

And: where is this all going on, where is this happening, where are we ‘doing’ this, spinning in space, going very fast somewhere, thousands of miles per hour?!

And while we are talking about it:  what is love in the first place, something everyone wishes to feel as much as possible, and what heals everything… What is that?!!!

Ands look at you!   Pre-assembled to explore, with such profound mechanisms and tools at your disposal.

All for free.  A gift from what is Unknown.  A body and mind.  Add to this the Earth, another magical, wondrous form for our Living Pleasure…  What an absolute, magical, amazing wonder that we even exist.

 

Enjoy your gift of living today, right now, the  present moment.  Seems like a wonderful idea; it’s all yours anyhow!

 

Love it, embrace it, explore love and its expression with your own personally-manufactured-for-you body mind, never duplicated, waiting to be you…as you tell it what to do.

Feel the wonder that you can look, move, think, love, feel, do anything at all, from the simple act of reaching for something – which is, in itself, an unbelievable feat! – to sensing that you even exist!

Now THAT is an unbelievable Gift. The awe of existing, and, being you.

What a wonder you are.

While love is the answer, your willingness to learn to be love in every moment is the key.

unnamed

 

While having an open heart to those who are different than you is an answer, your willingness to love who you are, self-love, is the foundation for doing the rest.

 

While having a relationship can be what you want, your willingness to move in life AS relationship is what heals your personal life and that of all residents of this world (or any other, for that matter!).

 

While being a genius can seem the answer, your willingness to learn from any person, place, or thing, is true intelligence and begets wisdom.

 

Let our moments of existence be an ever-expanding expression of the Mystery that created it all.

Have you ever wondered why people anywhere on earth find it difficult to live a life without stress, upset and confusion? To understand what is going on here, we must know the Source from which all things arise. Not by thinking about it, nor by feeling mad, sad, glad or scared. We must begin to feel what we actually are beyond the moment-to-moment thoughts, feelings and moods that arise constantly within us.

 

“Every thought, the sense of I, the entire body mind, every object, every other body mind, the world, everything, comes out of Spirit. In every instant of existence, the same universal drama is being enacted. That is, phenomena are appearing and disappearing out of Being. To understand what is going on in every moment, you must know the Source, the Original Condition from which all matter springs. To simply know the offshoots of the Whole is to be bound in the circus of up and down forever.”
– Michael Silverman, Innocent Catalyst/Spiritual Teacher

The ups and downs of passing moods, reactions to people and experiences are not, paradoxically, you. Yes, it feels that way as they move through your emotional field, but it is a mistake to assume that is all you are; it is not founded on sensing/knowing what is actually going on here. It can be done; it does take a deep desire and courage, an act of will to break through this illusion, but it can be done, and not by a select few, for times have changed.

This means YOU can do so.

In the process of exploring What Life is, true revolutionaries are needed, those willing to explore who and what they are, and let go of the self-imposed suffering while alive. And this type of revolution is a radical change in perception of what Reality is, a shift in conscious awareness. To “go boldly where few are willing to go,” where one’s own life is seen as the precious presence it actually is, and that it deserves to be protected to fully live, grow and evolve. To do so, a being must be willing to be seen in vulnerable and clear ways, by themselves and others. They must be willing to acknowledge their suffering, the way that they defend their confusions and try to justify their stance, trying to be accepted, admired and loved, to feel needed in the world. They must be willing to surrender the games of the ego, i.e., games that solidify the perception that you are a separate entity based on the moods that flow through your emotional body and brain mind judgments about it all. True revolutionaries in this sense are those who are willing to be “in the line of fire” of spiritual transformation. And this ‘line of fire’ results only in the death of fear of living, which is the true scourge of Mankind.

glassesBeing seen means humbly admitting that you are more interested in securing a position of power and control with love considered “unimportant,” where defending what is done/felt rather than clarifying WHY one would feel the need to defend seems the best option in life, feeling that you are alone and must survive on your own wits at all costs.

When you hold onto – and it is unconscious at this point – the perception that you are a separate entity, you are suffering from feeling your life is transitory, temporary. And why? When you feel you are alone and separate from everything else, you are constantly on guard and uncomfortable with life. If you have no reference point for your existence beyond all the comings and goings of your body and mind, you are “afraid for your life.” You become consciously and unconsciously focused on the fear of loss of something, be it your life, relationship(s), jobs, money, food, sex, intelligence, etc., with only temporary distractions from that suffering, the root discomfort of living without feeling what you actually are. So, people try to fill that primal void with persons, places, things, thoughts, etc. But that ‘void’ is only filled when you feel yourself in totality.  And that totality is not perceived through your brain mind, but through feeling beyond the body mind. And it can happen to you.

You see, life is not painful; it is the way you look into/see/experience it that makes it so confusing! This is more than just a clarification of your ‘mission’ on earth or seeking higher information to continue pursuing a life based on feeling separate. Spiritually, it is necessary to develop the ability to see what is underneath your actions, or your life will continue to be filled with involuntary, mechanical rounds of repetition of suffering the same issues, because that is all you know, or have known, to feel alive.

Virtually everybody is walking around with an incomplete and superficial notion of Reality, of what is truly happening here. There must be a turnabout in how one experiences life; there must be a rerouting of how you actually sense you are alive and what you are doing. Your perception of living needs to find an opening to the feeling presence of Life Living Itself; the matrix or background structure, the Universal Field that lives all universes. And it can happen.

In the line of fire, while taking true courage and will, implies feeling through the false perception of separateness from everything else, moving through the sheen of false separation. Here is what is truly odd about living: the actual perception that you are a separate individual is not the “problem” but the conclusion that this is all you are, is false! There must be an impulse within you, a desire to inspect what is normally hidden from view, as this can activate the ability to FEEL BEYOND this illusion, for the Origin of Life must be bodily felt and intuited. It is not done through the brain mind, the collector of data, but with the feeling sense that there is Something More. This is a beginning portal to higher evolution, and not just into metaphysical planes where lights, colors, energies, various entities exist, for those realms are still part of the illusory veil of feeling separate and are only an intermediate resting-point for those drawn to what life actually IS at its root. This is where true revolutionaries arise. And at this time in human existence it is possible to do so.

Perhaps you have heard this phrase: “You don’t think that you are alive, you know that you are alive.” Take a moment to become aware of the two different channels used to feel what this statement is saying: one channel is ‘thinking’ by staying focused within the brain-mind data collector system. Most find themselves deeply tied into this approach of perceiving in life. The other channel is a ‘knowing,’ a felt-sense within and without the body mind, not hindered by the thinking mind. It tends to be latent and stagnant, sometimes accessed in traumatic or dramatic moments in our lives. This knowing is not based on the feeling of emotions, but another spatial-intuitive system that transcends all the body mind activity. It can be used as a beginner’s highway, a doorway, to sensing who and what you actually are.

There is a divine individuality that is waiting to burst forth into this Universe, but it requires true revolutionaries, those who are willing to go through the learning to FEEL what life is, and not THINK ABOUT what life is. The paradox is that the brain-mind, the tendency to collect, judge and conclude about life moments, becomes wonderfully alive and ‘online’ when it is allowed to rest in the truth of what existence is. It has other work to do once this link-up is made, and that, my friend, can be the birthing of your unique divine individuality.

As this journey is begun, “spiritual heat’ occurs as a natural, higher evolutionary phase kicks in. Confusion and clarity, fear and peace, unclear impulses and moments of inspiration all mixed in one pot as you begin to ‘cook’ and open to who you are. People within all cultures and from every background have learned to hold their pain and problems near and dear to them and to deny the possibility that they are truly divine beings. We are, however, en masse, on the brink of evolutionary change for all.

…the whole idea is then to see the impure identification with the body mind that translates into the belief that you are that transitory self…without a permanent dissolution of the ego-I, it is impossible to be who you are…as being who you are implies the termination of separateness… “
-Comment by Michael Silverman, Innocent Catalyst/spiritual teacher

We must learn to be vulnerable, be willing to give up our tendency to hide life wounds, our human frailties, and reveal the celebration of our unique abilities. Yes, some attachments of perception are not very pretty, and some are benign, but they all deny the truth of who you are and where you are going, in the highest sense. When we register life based on our emotional field and what others have told us, we cannot fully exist as ourselves. This is where true revolutionaries willing to be in the line of fire of transformational forces are needed. No matter what someone’s life history is, anyone can be transformed; they must have the desire to see they are caught in a perceptual box and Feel beyond it. The ability to do so is built into our DNA; we just have to make the choice to activate and attend to it. This is the greatest possible statement anyone can make in the world, and is the most transformative for the planet and humanity itself.

unnamed

This expression of our uniqueness – never to be seen or duplicated again, anywhere, anytime, is our gift back to the Light. The Universe, the Cosmos, gives us form, and we express through that form. By maturing enough to feel good about ourselves as humans and then to put our ‘selves’ in the sacred line of fire of the Divine, or God, we surrender to our true identity, the Universe itself expressed in the present moment. Do not be distracted by the forms of life that express such deep confusions that life itself is denied. Bring peace to your life and to Earth by being you, in all your beauty. That is the true end of war, anywhere, anytime.

SINKING INTO NATURE

On September 23rd, 2014, posted in: Nature, Spiritual by

When you step into nature, when you relax into nature, you are sinking into the birthing of life on earth: the womb of your form, your body. It is pristine, pure. You “unfold” into your body parts, and they provide vessels of perception and movement into your future. The beginning of this unfolding bypasses your thinking mind circuits – which are still developing – and connects your awareness, through those cells, directly to the vibrating slowness of the calm, peace and magical and unseen forces of Nature that form your body, without a word being spoken, but only Felt. This is deeply engrained in your cells and awareness and can be reawakened.

photo(1)

NATURE IS THE INTERMEDIARY LIVING FORCE that gave you a body and mind, and the Primary Force, whatever you may call it, the Mystery/ God/the Divine or countless other names for what is Felt, that primary force gave the awareness that you are ALIVE, that you EXIST, in a body. You feel it: you don’t think that you are alive; you know that you are alive through other channels of awareness! How can that be, to know not through your thinking mind but through some other mechanism?!

SO, NATURE ASSEMBLES US into a shape, a form, a frequency that can move and express itself here. Yes, we are still learning to Love with ease and to express that everywhere. But it, Nature, provides a school, a backdrop in which our species is learning to Be Itself.

THE EARTH IS A UNIVERSAL PLAYGROUND FOR ANY LIVING PRESENCE HERE. A sense feeling of this playground needs to be reawakened in us; it will help us heal. Allow yourself to learn to contact it deeply, sinking into it with awareness, not a thinking mind. Melding with it in this way stimulates awe of the beauty of you even existing: being able to hear, see, touch, smell, or taste, to be able to feel whatever it is you may feel in your adventures here.

Do you even know what a sound is?  From where does it arise, come from?

What about a ‘seeing” of something? How can that be?! What is it?

Or what is a “feeling of or touching” of something?

What is “tasting;” what are you actually doing/experiencing?

Oh yes, we can describe, in exquisite detail, what it is made of through nature’s shapes and forms, but where do any of these perceptions come from, how did they arise, come into existence in the first place?  It truly is a mystery, for do we truly know what anything is?  Somehow, somewhere, something is Alive and Living everything. What a wonder!

SINKING INTO NATURE IGNITES THE BEGINNING OF SINKING INTO THE WHOLENESS OF WHAT YOU ARE, the arising of Consciousness, the Mystery, God itself, into form.

What “that” is, no one knows…

NATURE IS BEAUTY IN ITS RAW FORM, waiting to feel you feeling it, accepting it as an ally, a gift-giver of balance and peace as you spend your time on earth. This, in itself, gives rise to physical, mental, emotional and spiritual health. It can become a steppingstone for your higher evolution, igniting love of the mystery of Creation itself. This refreshes and balances you, giving strength for all of your adventures in your life, some beautiful, and, yes, some quite confusing, until we deeply understand what is truly happening here, deep in our souls.

SO, PLEASE: meld with Nature while you are in or with it; allow your senses to absorb it, allow peace to enter you.  It is an unspoken language; it is a Language of the Heart.  Nature radiates aspects of this to you; it waits for you; let it support you. Take this language of languages with you into your life and onto the planet everywhere you go; it ignites awe, and awe melts the mind and allows the heart to open.

Sink into Nature and receive.

Once you open to how to do so, it is yours forever.

Universal Truths

On June 28th, 2012, posted in: Evolution by

 

REFLECTIONS FOR EVOLUTIONARY CHANGE:

All matter in life begins as a pattern, from the molecules rotating in space to the steel beams and frameworks for high rises. Cellular structures have patterns. Architectural structures have patterns. To enter this realm, patterns must exist or forms could not take shape. Anywhere you look, even in seeming chaos, a pattern, a print can be found. How can anyone assume one’s life does not have a pattern, a print, when all of creation arises from one? Your life has purpose, meaning, and is imprinted with the Universe’s Signature.

UNIVERSAL SPIRITUAL TRUTHS

The basic structures of reality have patterns that allow life to be lived in harmony, within oneself and with others. The following are basic spiritual truths, universal in nature, which apply for all living beings in any form. When they are followed, the physical/emotional/mental patterns that “hold” your attention go into balance and the higher forces of change and evolution can then activate on your behalf.

•    Each soul must, through its own yearning and desire, develop a relationship with and eventually surrender into what lives it: the Universe itself, God, the Light.

•    Each soul must care for and respect the body in which it finds itself.

•    Each soul must acknowledge that all living beings, including itself, have a purpose, a reason for being, even if it is not consciously understood.

•    Each soul must care for and respect the earth which provides nourishment as wellas a home and space to explore existence.

•    Each soul must live with honesty and integrity. Perfection is not important, but acknowledging mistakes and learning from them, at whatever pace you can, is.

•    Each soul must learn to let go of any and all manipulation of other’s lives and simpler life forms.

•    All must live from their unique blueprint and expression, or the tendency to judge and gossip will arise. When in doubt, express who you are in some small or big way, and your fears as well as doubts will begin to dissolve automatically.

•    Life will present challenges and choices to help you evolve and open to yourself and the Divine.

•    Human beings cannot determine when to employ Love, for:

“Love is pulsing through every article of creation. God has no special moments, and Love needs to be radiated even when it is most uncomfortable. We must come to the conclusion that we have no choice but to Love.”

                               (Quote from Michael Silverman)

AN AUTOBIOGRAPHY IN FIVE CHAPTERS

On April 28th, 2012, posted in: Evolution by

 

(Found many years ago, not sure where. But if you are interested in evolution on any level, this is a wonderful reminder…)

CHAPTER 1:

I walk down the street. There is a deep hole in the sidewalk. I fall in. I am lost…I am helpless. It isn’t my fault. It takes forever to find a way out.

CHAPTER 2:

I walk down the same street. There is a deep hole in the sidewalk. I pretend I don’t see it. I fall in, again. I can’t believe I am in this same place! But it isn’t my fault. It still takes a long time to get out.

CHAPTER 3:

I walk down the same street. There is a deep hole in the sidewalk. I see it is there. I fall in…it’s a habit…but my eyes are open. I know where I am. It is my fault. I get out immediately.

CHAPTER 4:

I walk down the same street. There is a deep hole in the sidewalk. I walk around it.

CHAPTER 5:

I walk down a different street.

-=-

May you take the time to reflect upon this pattern within your own lives, and be willing to release the pain that keeps you in such a rut. You are able to heal; you just must care for yourself the way you take care of something or someone that you love. The Universe is Love itself; you are the Universe. You are learning to Love who you are and all that arises everywhere. Life and Love are one and the same. And yes, this includes you . . . how can it not?!

The Futility of Seeking

On March 28th, 2012, posted in: Evolution by

There is nothing wrong with experiencing life and its many possibilities. However, to assume that gaining temporary contentment through things that change is all there is to life is false. The desire for true peace, happiness and contentment as a permanent state is prior to things that change; it is the fabric of the universe, the cosmic matrix, the energy which lives everything.

What is seeking?

•    When the mind and body is always looking for stimulation within and without to feel a sense of purpose, value and accomplishment.

•    When one is always trying to ‘release’ through the body or mind, independent of Spirit.

•    The wanting to feel better temporarily, rather than being dependent upon Spirit for one’s well-being.

•    The wanting to feel better relative to your experience here, not in terms of surrender of the perception that you are a separate entity, i.e., an ego.

Seeking is understanding that the human circuitry, the nervous system, is always self-referring, seeking something – in the world or inside oneself – to try to get rid of the discomfort that something is missing, to have a sense of temporary release from this stress.

The only way to live in a perpetual state of release is to Open to What Lives us.

All else is seeking through things that change.

The Awakening Of The Heart

On March 9th, 2011, posted in: TheHeart by | 1 Comment

The awakening of the heart cannot be measured by marketing techniques or formulas.  Nor can it be assumed that less is ‘bad’ when numbers are added up. The heart is measured by the level of radiance, not quantity of people, and that is not measurable through dollars in any account anywhere in the world…

 

One being whose heart is open offsets untold
numbers of others who are still lost.

 

Those who are evolving need to ignite, instill, inspire and draw humanity to the source of existence.  This is a process and not a goal; a gentle unfoldment.  There is a Knowing that the Mystery of Existence, the Light itself, will be Seen and Felt by all, some day.  And that means there is no need to convince anyone of anything spiritually for, when their heart is ready, they will Listen.

 

We are here to inspire, help, and encourage anyone, anywhere,  and any place or time, to Move into alignment with the highest expression of themselves and into alignment with the transformative powers of the Universe.

 

It is our job to provide an unbiased, innocent and supportive space to find their way home.   People need an avenue to place their attention upon what is Greater through activities and tasks that align to their interests as a soul.  This honors both the Mystery of Life from which we arise, and the unique life that we are living now.

 

It is impossible to be born without some purpose, even if there is confusion about what that purpose is and how to express it.  And the beauty is that, if we are exposed to those whose hearts are open or opening, our own awakening is stimulated.

 

Life is, again, a process, not a goal.  It is never-ending.  And this Universe will ultimately complete its cycle of healing when humanity graduates into loving as a state of being, and not manufacturing ways to create attention based on things that change.

WHAT DOES IT MEAN TO “SEEK?”

On February 8th, 2011, posted in: Evolution by

| Tags: ,

What does it mean to “seek”

•    The body mind looks for (seeks) stimulation to feel alive, have a purpose outside of itself.

•    To release the palpable tension that permeates the body mind due to feeling separate from What lives us.

•    To try to feel better separate from and not dependent upon Spirit for your well-being. Wanting to feel better based on your experience here, not in terms of Feeling beyond the sense of “feeling” separate.

What are the qualities of seeking?

•     Are momentary pleasures, temporary remedies and any resulting “good mood” fades away.

•    Are giving answers, adding on to other’s ideas to feel better about who you are vs. being you.

•    Defending your “pleasures and remedies” as if they are an appropriate replacement for Feeling the peace, stillness and Love that is the Divine which – paradoxically – is YOU.

•    Defending your moods and ways of relating rather than being open, non-judgmental and exploring what brings Happiness into your life and expression.

What is “non-seeking”

•     Being who you are: not trying to do anything except being yourself without strain, effort or jumping out of the present moment you are in. Learning how to yield to effortlessness, peace, and innocence.

•     The only way this becomes permanent is through Feeling beyond all the forms and moods, “good or bad,” that distract from learning to Feel the Living Truth.

•     Lasting “aliveness” only occurs with the Divine.

•     When you are being who you are, your Happiness is independent of phenomena, of things that change.

Our body minds have a problem:

They are self-referring, constantly seeking something to try to get rid of the discomfort of feeling separate. This is only corrected when you feel what you are: the arising Living Force of the Universe.

Why are we so resistant?

What we are truly afraid of is giving up our hold on what gives us temporary relief and satisfaction, fearing there is nothing else. So we – paradoxically – fight when permanent Happiness/Truth is shared. Life and expression do not end when you stop seeking and open to what lives everything. What ends is lovelessness, the feeling of being separate. What remains is Love. And Love just Loves, learning to express Happiness everywhere.

May your ‘fight’ to stay unhappy and separate be as short as is humanly possible!!!
