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.

The human heart is, somehow, in rhythmic harmony with the pulse/heartbeat of the Earth…

The Earth is, somehow, in rhythmic harmony, in sync with the pulse/heartbeat of the Sun…

 

unnamed

 

And the Sun is, somehow, in rhythmic harmony, in sync, with the pulse/heartbeat of the Galaxy in which we reside…

 

And our Galaxy is, somehow, in rhythmic harmony, in sync with the entire Universe’s pulse/heartbeat…

And when there is a “change” in the pulse/rhythm broadcasting through the Universe, it, somehow, adjusts the pulse/heartbeat of our Galaxy, and our Galaxy adjusts its pulse and changes our Sun’s pulse/heartbeat, and the Sun adjusts the pulse/heartbeat of the Earth, our home…

 

And here is what is truly awe-inspiring (as if the latter was not enough!):  in this transformation of energy patterns affecting other energy fields, the Earth, somehow, adjusts the literal pulse/heartbeat of our actual physical hearts.

 

One thing is consistent for all life:  it needs relationships to exist and to express.  Millions/billions of simple/complex living relationships exist everywhere.  From simple elements such as hydrogen and oxygen forming water to the union of two beings creating a child.  From receiving nourishment through food and water to the nourishment of our hearts.

 

As far as the transformation of heartbeats/pulses in our universe, the how and why is not known “scientifically.”  But these living relationships, the transfer of rhythms from one to the other, with distance meaning nothing, do something that indicates a living, active relationship.  There seems to be One Being here, communicating.  And its cellular components are in relationship in every moment, no matter how confusing things may seem.

 

Life exists because “relationships” exist: it is a basic building block of reality for us.

 

Learning to feel the sameness, the union, in life can ignite wonder, awe, hope for positive change anywhere in our lives.  Look in all directions, not just up and down and inward.  Feel what is going on here, and fall into the wonder and awe and magic of being alive.

 

Who knows how or why?  Just allow yourself to feel the impact of such truths, for this is evolution at work, when your heart is moved to feel beyond everyday perceptions.  Let it help you begin to see the forest and not be restricted by just seeing the trees.  And the forest is the living network of the Cosmos, somehow magically expressing itself as “us.”
And when we begin to feel life and relax our tendencies to be thinking about it and what we can do ‘to’ it, true evolutionary magic begins.

 

As for our daily lives?  Well, I would suggest taking it one relationship at a time, whether it is with yourself, another, others or beyond.  This begins the journey into Oneness throughout time and beyond.  Each pulse/heartbeat expression of awe and wonder, one healed person at a time, each with the potential to ignite something “unknown” in another, sometimes in ways that are not understood.

 

What a wonder!

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.

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.”

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.

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!!!

The House of Mirrors

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

In many carnival and amusement park settings, there is a “house of mirrors.”  Within this playground of vision, we are confronted with a myriad of reflections, distorted shapes and unusual sizes of ourselves.  Yet paradoxically, in the midst of this ‘confusion,’ we actually enjoy seeing these images of ourselves, watching how they change as we move, walk or even talk!  We find it humorous and non-threatening as we look at these projected images of ourselves, and will invite others to look at them and laugh!  And, after doing so, we still have a sense of self that feels intact and even refreshed by such explorations!….

The observational ability we use in a carnival house of mirrors – to laugh and play with our reflected images – needs to be developed within our daily lives.  We need to become comfortable with exploring new, healthier and happier ways of being and communicating.   And yet this has proven to be one of the most difficult gestures for us to develop.  It is necessary so we can leave the crisis of self-doubt behind, so we can let go of the repetitive, hypnotic examination of the endless stored images of ourselves.  If we do not, we inflame our shadows of self-doubt, dislike and negative self-absorption.  When we constantly use our house of shadowy mirrors, we intensify self-doubt and block our ability to relax and open to ourselves, let alone to the Greater Whole.   ….

See the house of mirrors as an analogy.  One in which we assume we are just reflections of our behavior, that we are just what is projected into the world.  We falsely believe that our actions, thoughts, behaviors and words are all that we are and build an identity upon it.   We become trapped into thinking about ourselves and constantly worrying about whether we are accepted, approved or loved.   We end up searching, always mentally wandering through life, and desperately looking for some validation of our right to be accepted or loved.  ….

We need to have compassion for ourselves, to relax the tight grip we have upon our ‘failure’ to ‘know it all, right now!’ approach to growth.  We need to be merciful, releasing the constant judgments.  We need to celebrate and support our insights and changes, give up fighting off a deeper integration of truth and change.   Why defend that which is truly not you, but just a “mood of energy” that flows through you into the world?!    Why not enjoy making adjustments that birth a healthier and happier sense of self and relationships, one that allows a happier, cleaner, more profound life to be lived?  Choices which allow your life to be expressed in peace, harmony and happiness, within and without?  A space in which you can begin to open to what you actually are: an Incarnation of the Light?  Doesn’t this seem more interesting than the defense of your footprints in life?  Why not look at your way of walking in life, celebrating all new understandings of yourself and how you interact with the world?  ….

Have you ever experienced the peace that arises when you finally DO quit fighting with a new way of perceiving yourself and accept it, allowing a more advanced and mature way of being move through you?  Now the question to ask yourself: why would you avoid it?…….

The house of mirrors needs to be seen for what it is: a reflective tool used to align you to more advanced ways of loving and being, to purify how you miss the point of life.  To guide you into a space which will reveal what it is you need to learn.  After all, if you haven’t noticed, this is a realm of experimentation, trial and error!
