Times Past

“Should old acquaintance be forgot” is a line to a popular song played on New Year’s Eve.

There is much discussion in spiritual circles and instruction in spiritual teachings to focus on the present—that all power is in the present, all possibility is in the present, and the past and the future do not exist. In essence that is true; yet, the concept wishing to be conveyed is often misinterpreted. In truth, you have only and will only exist in the present; it is the place of your perception; it is the place of your power. You exist nowhere else; yet, the past and the present also exist in this moment.

Immediately we can sense many readers cringing at the thought that their past exists in the present moment—rather than a negative circumstance–it is a positive situation—the present allows the past to be healed and the future to be created. It is a difficult translation for the human psyche to be instructed to live in an eternal present while listening to the clock ticking on the mantle. So as you reach the close of another year, it is appropriate to honor times past and lessons learned, and to anticipate a bright […]

Destination Planet Earth

There have been many theories and philosophies about the purpose of human existence. Philosophy, psychology and numerous religions have sought to understand the human experience.
We would like to propose this analogy: incarnation is much like going on vacation.
You go on vacation to explore, relax, rejuvenate and expand your awareness of the world in which you live, possibly to discover new cultures and experience different social mores. The same is true for you as spiritual beings having a physical experience. Truly your home, the center of your existence, is in the spiritual realms, and much like you would plan a trip to the beach or a distant country, your soul plans, prepares and investigates destinations to experience.

When you go on vacation you often take a friend, perhaps a few, to vacation with you. The truth is that everything and everyone you encounter in the physical plane of existence exists forever in the consciousness of your mind. In fact, they existed before you encounter them physically and have been brought into your world by your consciousness.

We invite you to take a new look at life and living in this minute slice of eternity that you are experiencing. To see it as […]

Creativity vs. Creation

We often speak of humanity as creators and becoming increasingly aware of their participation in the creative force of the universe. With that increasing awareness, people have become aware of the responsibility to create well. Part of the ongoing “problem” is that humanity does not remain conscious in their creations, often mis-creating through lack of attention or accountability. Creation has always and will continue to occur—if you are taking a breath and your heart is beating, you are creating. It cannot be escaped; yet, how you respond to this innate ability to be a creator is yours.
Creation is the reality. Creation is existence. Creation is not a past event or a future experience.
It is now, an eternal, ever-evolving process of consciousness. Creativity, on the other hand, is when you actively participate in the process of creation—when you take not only individual responsibility, but also wisely use the raw materials in your reality to create.

All of you who read this concept have had moments of inspiration, spurts of creativity, being in the “zen” of things. These moments are not some arbitrary, by chance, encounters with your inner creator. Rather they are a glimpse into an ever-present process available to you […]

Interdependent vs Codependent

The term codependency is frequently bandied about. There are numerous groups centered around codependent behavior; whereas, interdependency is spoken of less often.

Interdependency is used by scientific and environmental groups to define the cohesiveness and network of support in creation. The term interdependency can also be of value in defining human interaction.
In fact, codependency is an aberration of the interdependency of humanity which is the natural state of existence.
• Interdependent relationships support you and enhance your ability to live well. Codependency is when you believe something outside of yourself is the source of your existence and your ability to live well.

• Interdependency is a servant to your dominion; codependency is a ruthless master over your life.

• Interdependency is the source; codependency offers nothing to enhance your life.

In truth, be it the species on the planet or a community of people, the very nature of existence is interdependent, each aspect of creation contributing to the whole. It is an outgoing and generous spirit, The result is that one plus one is greater than two. Codependency is a self-centered attitude generated from fear, utilizing control, manipulation, and deceit in an attempt to survive. It depletes those in the codependent relationship, and one plus […]

The Undeniable Fact

Throughout human history, what has been deemed as fact has often been shown to be fiction; and what has been thought of as fiction has been found to be fact. In a universe too immense to comprehend and a reality that is always shifting, unquestionable facts become rare, indeed.

As a result, humanity finds it difficult to find an anchor from which to build the perception of your existence. For every premise, theory or belief, there are those who would disagree or disprove its validity. There seems to be no common consensus of the reality in which you dwell or the world which you share.

Theologian, philosopher and sociologist alike have sought to find a common ground from which to participate and observe your world. The meaning of physical existence has been bantered and banged about by those seeking the truth and by those wishing to control. The purpose of your existence, the destiny of your days, the ultimate meaning of your life seems to be as numerous as the stars in the sky.

Yet, there is an undeniable fact, one that cannot be contested if you are reading these words–one that cannot be denied. It is the anchor and the foothold […]

Immersion

It is tradition, and rightfully so, that many celebrate their birth upon this planet, their incarnation into physical form. Friends and family gather and celebrate giving gifts to the one who is celebrating. We, of the realms, also celebrate that momentous occasion when an aspect of ourselves immerses themselves into the physical plane of existence and becomes consciousness incarnate.

In your holy writings of the Judeo-Christian belief, there is a hymn-like text that is filled with adoration of Jesus’ incarnation. We are not speaking of Christmas, we are speaking of a text, the Kenosis, that commemorates and acknowledges that Jesus set aside his divinity to become fully and completely human. He laid aside those aspects of himself, the skills and wisdom, that made him one and inseparable from the creator that created him—and what is spoken there is the model for each and every individual who has been born into physical existence.

You often admire someone who voluntarily gives up the comfort of their home, their employment or finances, and sets out on a mission to help others, perhaps a missionary to a foreign country. You take note when someone sacrifices, gives up something in the pursuit of a higher goal. […]

Sea of Existence

Humanity, as an individualized expression of the consciousness of the whole of creation, has misinterpreted its individuality as an alienation from the totality of All That Is. Individuality, in the spirit in which it was created, was never intended to be a source of separation. Feelings of alienation and separation occur when one loses sight of the three basic principles of consciousness—the source, the observation and the manifestation.

As we have indicated in the past, the One Mind, which represents the source, the One Thought, which represents the observation, and the One Soul, which represents the manifestation, are integral parts of consciousness and the trinitized expression of divinity. It is only when humanity segments these aspects of consciousness that individuality becomes a state of separateness. The chasm between you, the creator, and that which was created is only bridged when there is an acceptance that those three aspects of consciousness are equal and one.
Consciousness is dynamic and in constant flux and movement with itself.
The truth of your existence is that you are the only species on the planet that consciously contains all three aspects of consciousness. Indeed, throughout the universe there are many more but that is not the topic […]

Riddles to Reason

The universe is full of questions and answers. The exploration of existence and the presence of a divinity lead one to explore the outer horizons of the ability to reason. A riddle is seen as an intentional and purposeful clue to be explored in order to uncover a truth being sought. Reason is the analytical process that one goes through by examining facts and determining conclusions.

Which of these aspects of discovery, if either, are appropriate in the exploration of consciousness, creation and existence? Does divinity scatter riddles throughout the human consciousness to entice an expansion of awareness? Are facts of existence like precious grains of gold being sifted through the sands of human existence?

Divinity and consciousness do not seek to hinder or hide the truth of existence from any of its creation. Riddles are not created by the universe but rather as an intermediate step in the process of discovery, drawing humanity’s attention to the fact that something is hidden by their own limited self-awareness. The facts, or perhaps better stated, the laws of existence are evident and available to all who seek their discovery.
The universe is completely accessible. Consciousness is totally knowable and existence understandable—when you are open, […]

The Pursuit

Humanity throughout its existence has been in a perpetual pursuit of desires and hopes. The positive impact of that motivation is that it keeps humanity seeking and striving to expand itself. All areas of human development have been spurred by that desire to reach beyond the horizons of one’s limitations, the boundaries of one’s abilities, and the light of one’s knowledge.

At the same time, one’s pursuits can lead them astray depending on the purpose and the intention of their goals. The focus of one’s desire, the intent of one’s actions, and the thoughts of one’s mind has direct and profound effect on what they manifest and create in their lives.
The anatomy of the concept of pursuit is the combination of one’s desires and actions, and their emotion that propels the attainment of their goals.
In the coming of the new season upon the planet, what one pursues is important in the harvest they reap. One might contend that the seeds of human thought have already been planted and both the wheat and the weeds grow abundantly upon the rich soil of human thought. Indeed, this is truth yet the sun shines on all during the growing season, from the thistle […]

Enlightenment is Never a Weapon

You must learn to look with the eyes and hear with the ears of spirit in all that you experience.

When you take enlightenment and turn it into a weapon, it leaves the cinders of Consciousness behind in its wake.

Remember, do not create light in a village by setting it a blaze.

When one is not in acknowledgment, surrender and dominion, one’s life loses focus upon their goals.

The truth will be made known that the salvation of humanity has never rested in the fickle consciousness of any one individual or grouping of individuals.

See each failure or success as a stepping stone toward your ultimate goal.

Find the joy, enthusiasm in your lives. Why would you do something that does not give you joy.

Consciousness is the Universe. If you want to know what Consciousness looks like, simply look around you.

Understand that the body travels with the spirit rather than the spirit with the body.

When one identifies spirit and realizes the body is as a servant to it, one can walk on water, or pass through walls.

Everybody really is you, you know. Creation is a game of solitaire played on an infinite board of possibilities. Your only player is yourself.

Community of Consciousness

There is great wisdom and understanding to be gained by understanding your participation in the community of Consciousness. When you understand your contribution as well as its effect on individual lives, you are better able to maneuver this physical plane of existence, more able to accomplish goals both secular and spiritual. When you are connected to the collective consciousness, not only of humanity but of the realms, you are better prepared for the challenges of life and the ease of mastery. You are well aware that the physical plane of existence has many challenges at this time, and that the collective consciousness of humanity varies greatly from moment to moment.
Perhaps the Community of Consciousness can be seen as a double-edged sword.
Soaring one moment into spiritual heights, and then plummeting the next into the depths of the human condition. A roller coaster ride in consciousness from hope and peace to fear and anxiety. One may feel trapped, strapped on this ride, condemned to a circle of ups and downs from which they cannot escape.

Yet the collective consciousness holds the truth, the wisdom, the understanding, the peace and the perception to attain all things. The collective consciousness of All That Is has varying degrees of […]

Existence

Have you ever just stopped and pondered why you exist? How you came to be? Your consciousness, a window into a reality created by you, the eternal questions of “how did it begin” and “how will it end?”
Humanity lives within the thought that there is some source or force beyond their awareness that they have labeled “God.”
It is like a child playing in its room, aware that their parents are in the house, yet immediately unseen. So it is with you. There is an awareness that there are others in the “house” unseen; yet, even that awareness does not answer the question of existence. For if there is a God, who created it? Can something have no beginning and no end? The veil seems tightly shut against the answers. Yet today we will peek through the illusion of unknowingness and observe the truth of existence.
When you look out to the night sky and see the immenseness of the heavens above–what power, what force could have created that?
The easy answer is to label it “God”. The scientific explanation is the “Big Bang”. Even scientists would agree that the universe is not eternal, it had a beginning, and that in the […]
