If you thought this society couldn’t get any more off its mind, well look around. If Hollywood were making this movie they would have a satan character manipulating all the seemingly sane people into zombie killers.

What’s the most troubling is the corruption of Faith. Founded on Love of the Divine, we now adhere to the concept of murder and mayhem as a warrior’s banner for god. And how many gods are there anyway? The Christian god, the Jewish god, the Muslim god, the Hindu gods… and on infinitum. Maybe these are just lower level gods, who we made up to justify all that we do good, bad or otherwise.

These books we pray to weren’t written by gods, they were written by men. Not even women were allowed to put their two cents (sense) in when it came to the written word. Why is that? Aren’t we all made in the image of whatever made this thing we call life? Why are women not given equal station? That is the most insane mind screw ever. We as humans are as equals, masculine and feminine natures of the same source. How can anyone deny that?

I’ve been writing about ‘Letters’ for some time now. I hold the principles these books talk about in pretty high regard. I do understand they are just words from a man’s mind and not the holy grail. Yet I think they make sense, because they give power to love and gratitude and peace and oneness more than anything that’s come into my view. I resonate with them and see them as an example of what the life of an awakened soul can be like. I know there are other paths that can lead to this door of awakening and those paths are equally filled with love and gratitude and peace and oneness.

But, here we are, in this state of madness. A message of Fear being cast like thunderbolts by minds who care only for their ego’s gratification and care nothing about the welfare of humankind.

Pay attention, for Attention is the key to staying awake and alert and alive. Whatever happens next those who carry the banner of rightness will stand after the storm clears, and the bones of those madmen will be nothing but dust.

Into The Void

11x14TheVoid

V’s words make me stop and reflect. “I like the idea of a ‘solar heart’. That is the name for the merged chakras, I take it.”

“Yes. This alchemical process is the underlying energetic movement from ‘life’ into ‘Life’.

“And just what’s the difference between the little ‘life’ and the capital-L ‘Life’?”

V replies with a question, “This is another opportunity to use your intuitive awareness. What do you think?”

I ponder. “The first thing is right out of my own question. Life with a large ‘L’ seems to put an emphasis on the largeness of living; little ‘l’ means lower vitality. Is that correct?”

“You’re close. Ordinary life—the experience of the vast majority of humans throughout history—is missing a key ingredient. Without that ingredient, experience is flat and empty. Experience moves forward, but at a very slow pace.”

“What’s the ‘missing ingredient’?”

“Obviously, it is consciousness. Your species has always possessed awareness and varying degrees of alertness. But until you match that with the deeper presence—synonymous with consciousness—your view will be flat and two-dimensional. Life, in the larger expression, brings with it the matching power and depth. It brings the opportunity for you to become ‘aware of being conscious’.”

“All right,” I register. “How does Life bring this power to us? What do we need to do to take advantage of the opportunity?”

“You need only listen to your own breathing, and your own heartbeat. The connection between heart and breath is a magical, alchemical one. Listen to the Life within you. Feel the inner vibration and sensation of Life. It has never not been there. However, when you face away from it, resist or deny it, you refuse the key ingredient that elevates your sensibility. You remain in the lower levels of awareness. Humans have been prisoners in the basement of wakefulness for millennia.

“Once you take notice of the hum of cosmic presence in you—in your genes and cells—you are turning toward the Source. Let me give you a short exercise to help with your sensitivity to Life.”

“Please do,” I urge. (more…)

Robert:

I awoke this morning wanting to write poetry.

I lay there thinking about how the stars in space continue to move away from each other—at unimaginable speeds. We are like them in many ways; we want togetherness—twin suns, solar systems, galaxies, limitless bands of galactic webs. Three quarters of all stars in the universe are ‘twins’. We all want to move closer. But in the same wanting, we push away. Wanting, is itself, a pushing away—against ‘what is’.

 

Aging is such an interesting, frightening, enlightening process. It’s an opportunity to really wake up—if we would—to be alert to the forces that hold us together with one hand and push us apart with the other.

 

The great teachers have said it’s an illusion that we are ‘separate’, they say the universe is all One, that ‘all this’ is Allah… or God or Source. We can even feel this force directly for ourselves at times. it is in our flesh and bones, blood and breathing. Yet we are held away, drawn away, to live and carve out our ‘individual’ lives for a few score years on Earth. How quickly it all dissolves back down to essence though!

Oneness is this. It is not a fuzzy, warm, smarmy thing at all. It strips us to the bone, to the atom down. Down. Down. Wake up! The message of separateness is that we must go beyond all form to find Oneness. We must crush all our atoms into mist to find Openness. That message will not cease to pound us in the ears (and hearts) as long as we are identified, in even the slightest way, with forms.

 

Stefan: 

I can’t keep reiterating enough, that we intuitively know that the Oneness Choir resounds with the greatest sound of any other sound. I’m a sound guy so sorry for all the sound imagery, but you know what I mean. The form world is made up of multiple egos on every level, perhaps this is the Divine Ego in its greatest form, and the natural tendency of ego is to be separate from all else. Atoms to Galaxies to Universes there is a push-pull that keeps the mechanism working seamlessly. This is what gives us the ability to manifest in an evolving stream. I am sympathetic to all that is happening around me now and my tears are just as strong for the ‘bad guys’ as they are for the ‘good guys,’ however my devotion to truth makes my tears for bad guys tears of disbelief and for good guys tears of hope. this is a purely emotional, empathetic approach, not an approach that stems from the highest wisdom. But, I am human and enjoy the emotional catharsis it provides and when I am deep within my formless self I intuit that it is all good. 

Robert, as always you are right on point. I’m glad you stirred the pot a little today.

 

From V (the Voice of the Void, speaking through B):

“To know your isness is to know the isness of all creation—the ‘Great Isness’, shall we say. Who you are is a non-detachable fragment, an eye-slit, of the Great Isness. The eye-slit, of course, is what you use to peer through the mask—the persona—of your particular incarnations. Human beings identify so thoroughly with the ‘eye-slit’ that you cannot imagine yourselves otherwise. Imagine, for instance, what a blow to the ego going blind would be. ‘No, I am my eyes!’ And, from extension, ‘I am my mind!’ Imagine what a blow to the ego going mindless would be!

“The intention of this message is to aid you all to identify with your true identity. The one that lies beyond form, beyond Life itself even. Source. Source is the ancient of days, the ‘one about whom naught may be said’. To ‘say’ would be to put a form on it. It would then become ‘untrue’. Source has no form. It IS truth! It generates all form, yes. But the intention here is to connect you and transmute you, not to form you, not to give you another form to identify with.

“Begin again! This has been a relentless mantram and initiative for all the ages. Why? It’s not just that it keeps us moving, aspiring, inspiring, breathing. It’s not just that creation is always a beginning, unendingly. Beginning again is a pointer into how the dissolution and evolution of the universe operates beyond separation.

“As we truly begin again, we must shake off the baggage and chains of the past. And we must embrace the unknown. The ‘unknown’ presses every button in our psychic array. It makes us sit up, shake, and know intimately this moment, this Now. ‘What’s next? It could be frightening! It could take me far out of my comfort zone!’

“The most basic nature of our duality awareness—the heart and the head—demands that we feel alone, abandoned, separated off from the Oneness that we innately know we are. ‘What a cruel trick of incarnation and nature!’ But no. Not a trick; just another pointer. The head is one eye-slit; the heart is the other. To ‘begin again’ is to take off the mask. It is to find the merger point, the rising point, that brings the two together and mimics the One, the Source. The third eye is the first eye, the One Eye. Christ said “If thine eye be single, the whole body shall be full of light.” To ‘begin again’ is to focus your attention (light) in the single eye.”
