What is really going on here? continued...


In the last article, I mentioned the first of three attributes in how to know yourself – the path to know God and how to do it. The first attribute was: become interdimentional (thus, trust the parts of you that you cannot see –
- your Soul (group)/Monad).

The second attribute in knowing yourself as part of God is that you really have to understand that you’re part of the God family. To put it plainly – we are al part of the grander consciousness that makes up creation in its totality. There IS NO God on the one side and you on the other – God/Universal Consciousness cannot be separated from itself. Seeing God/Universal Consciousness as another thing over there is like playing chess with yourself. There is just no such possibility – it is a man-made concept used to explain the seemingly unexplainable. God is ONE WHOLE collective thing – although we have given God human characteristics in an identification attempt – and the true concept of God encompasses everything. God is the energy and driving force of creation, and it is the life-force that channels all realities.

The third attribute is to become compassionate. The admonishment here is to become compassionate in all things. With other words: in everything you do, say and think - do, say and think it with genuine compassion for everything and everyone around you – including yourself.

By combining and adhering to these three attributes – of interdimentional understanding, a realisation of collective family and a compassionate spirit – you will come to see the face of God.

Instead of describing to you how to do these things and how to incorporate them, I am going to give you a metaphor.
It describes a perception that will be, especially by parents – and especially by mothers - understood:

‘Mothers, remember the feeling when you had your first born – that precious moment? There is nothing like it.
Now, let’s say that you lost track of your children – let’s imagine they where living in another country – and you were no longer part of their lives. You lost contact. You missed them and yearned for their return.
Then, one day you receive a phone call: “Mom! It’s us! We found you. Can we come home?"

Mom. What are you going to say? Your children wish to come home. You don’t ask why – you just want to see them again.

The metaphor of coming home is the connection with the Higher-Self, which gets you back into remembrance and reunion with God.

One child shows up in a brown car and one in a blue – do you care? Do you care, mom?
There will be those who do care what colour car you drive, but not the Creator – for how can one part of one thing wish another part of itself to be wilfully discarded? All Spirit cares about here is the heart and integrity of the search, not how you get there – or which car you drive or what colour it is. Universal Consciousness cares about the reunion of its consciousness.

The complete message here is that the Creator wishes to be found – a message very seldom heard in hard-core religious doctrine - and does not care how the reunion occurs.
Spirit wants to be found! It’s simple, not hard. Without any special steps or suffering; no special rules or party hats are needed either.’

If you really wish to see the face of God then observe people in their own world – you don’t get to know yourself by dissecting others’ characters and placing them in a box and assigning then some type of meaning based on this box. It boils down to a matter of how deeply you trust your own guidance (Attribute #1) to how much bounce will be in your step.

Harmony and happiness are states of consciousness, not acquired attitudes:
Every choice in your life has to be tested by conscious questioning; from the biggest to the smallest everyday choices. Every decision you make must also satisfy five necessary attributes:

TRUTH
BEAUTY
HEALTH
HAPPINESS
LIGHT

If even one attribute is absent, you must look in another direction regarding your decision.
Live by it and you cannot ‘fail’ in your path.

You can only say that you know how to love, and live in and with love, when you know the value of things and people that leave lasting impressions of their lives.

What is really going on here?


“A love affair with knowledge will never end in heartbreak.”
- Michael Garret Marino

What is really going on here?

We hear that the world is going to cease existing the way we know it - from fear-mongers, metaphysicians, astrologers and scientists alike; we also hear that our planet is going to become home to an enlightened and spiritual world society from the general New Age community – when? when I’m 96? or in my next life time? or the one after that?

Whatever your path to God (and, believe you me, EVERYBODY has their path to God – even those that classify themselves as atheists), is of little significance (and in the eyes of Universal Consciousness – completely insignificant). It is relevant to us, however, how one does it.
What I mean is that Universal Consciousness is just that – it is a consciousness that is only interested in YOU (the Human part of the whole Creation thing) finding YOU (the Etheric part of ultimate reality – and thus to access YOU in the consciousness of the universe).
This so-called shift that is taking place is no more or less a way than how Humans are starting to think. We are NOT going to poof into the sunset by December 2012, and neither is the world going to magically change into an esoteric paradise; it is just a change to the next time period – as with our current astrology time line. It is also undeniable that times ARE a-changing – the only difference now is that it is happening much faster than it used to. This is simply a result of Human consciousness awakening to the fact that there is more to know – and that we have the abilities to make new knowledge and/or opinions known at a much faster rate (through the media, internet, world travel, chat facilities – even with cell phones, etc.). There is much more scrutiny taking place now than before and hiding places are growing scarcer. The percentage of people who can be truly viewed as “those nutty ones that speak of the light and know that they are a complete part of it – and REALLY know and live it”, are but less than half of 1 percent of humankind. Yet, they make an enormous difference – a difference that will change the way much of Humanity thinks – not because they try and change the way we think, no, their impact lies in the power of allowing others to think for themselves. Whether Jesus Christ or Nelson Mandela, they made/make people think and ponder in peace.

The reason I say that everybody has a path to God/Universal Consciousness, even the atheists, is because everybody has some kind of belief system; and THAT is what God/Universal Consciousness is about. The path to seeking out your intelligence, authority and knowledge for yourself is a fact – NEVER MIND the way it is done or how.
The above might sound like a dangerous way of thinking, but just think of it this way: A person who has accessed their own intelligence, wisdom and knowledge and who sees themselves as part of the whole set-up is actually unable to wilfully harm another part of the whole set-up.

The answers are always quite simple – only our implementation of them (or deciding which one is best) create the complications.

Let’s look at three attributes in getting to know Universal Consciousness and how to do it:
Number 1: Become interdimentional in thought.
When a human heart hurts emotionally, it hurts; we feel the pain no matter what is said. This is so because of our Human make-up. Becoming interdimentional in thought allows you access to your “other parts” that are not in Human form. These “other parts” are always there – and even include those that have died in our reality. This is not necessarily a comfort when your heart is breaking, for example, when a loved one has died. And it is not meant to be a comfort at that time – but the knowledge that all is part of a grand consciousness that creates, becomes a comfort when the pain subsides and produces the knowledge of interdimentional reason.

For those who do not believe in this (or cannot bring themselves to do so for their own reasons) – they might create more confusion for themselves, but they are following their own belief structure – and thus their own path. There is no such thing as a non-believer – it cannot be, it is not possible – for not believing is belief in something, and this is just another path.

Remember: Universal Consciousness is just that. It is a consciousness.

The reason that the New Age movement has been seen as a threat to religion is for
absolutely no other reason than the fact that most New Agers do not follow a specified doctrine – because there is none – irrespective of those New Agers who have succumb to making their belief system a religion. But however that may be, the New Age (or the current New, New Age) thought is no different in its meaning as a belief system than any other belief system.
By the way – “New Age” is simply a term that implies that we are moving into a new age of thought – like moving into the next astrological age (which we will be doing soon enough) - our next linear time period.

In the next distribution email, I will highlight the next two attributes in getting to know Universal Consciousness and how to do it. And then also tell a little story..
