Ramblings In My Head And Stirrings In My Heart

Oh Great and Glorious Mystery of Mysteries, my Heavenly Father.  Pour forth from your mercy thy Living Word, your Eternal Wisdom my glorious Redeemer.  Let your wisdom emanating from thy throne of Eternity, shine upon me as to baptise me in your spirit of truth and understanding.  Give me a pure heart that loves without reason. 

For it is with  the pure of heart that the living word dwells within.  It is not what the mind perceives our the intellect believes that is our salvation, but when an honest heart in man comes to you in need to be freed.  Who claims to know the heart of another?  Is it not the maker of hearts who judges His creation?  Then let me not judge others, but instead I invite your living word into my heart and ask for my redemption to be revealed to me daily.   I ask this of you so that I may daily be renewed into your mercy and grace and be transformed into a light upon this world.  So that through the love you give me I may give to others and they may know that our Living God has truly come to dwell with his people.  Give me an appetite to serve you with all my heart and let this be my bread from heaven.  Bless me with a heart that feels others as myself, so that I may know what is lacking in them and do the will of my Father in heaven. 

Then let us not confuse the inner life we live with the outer appearance of things.  For what we see with our eyes will surely pass away, yet what we hold in our heart is eternal.  So I ask my God to plant within my secret garden a love for wisdom and a spirit of truth and understanding, so that I may know the unseen things within me that matter.  Shine what is darkened and water what has withered so that I may flourish in my inner man even as my outer man is dying. 

Blessed be your children who appear upon the earth like flowers and come and go with the seasons, but I know in my heart that with God all ends are a start to an eternity of new beginnings.

What Is This Love?

I have seen what earthly standards call love.  I have seen a love that is conditional.  I have been that heart that loves only what is similar to it.  I have been limited to calling love a mere emotion.  I have been blinded by a love that’s not giving.

What is this precious Love that has touched me so profoundly?  Why do my words fail to explain what has occurred here?  I have been visited by a Love that has no reasons.  I have been given a gift that my prior actions do not deserve.   Truly this Love comes not from a selfish sinner such as myself, yet it has found a dwelling space within me.  Then again is it really in me, or have I been consumes by it?  Perhaps it is better to say that it is clearing a path so as to travel through me.  I have attained nothing, in fact I feel at times  that I have lost everything within it.  It is ever-changing in its manifestations which makes any attempt at expressing it pale in comparison to experiencing it.  It whispers in the silence of my heart saying, ” come see”.

I have been wounded in Love and now being freed from my own darkness I fall like dead before this Light within me.  From a slave to a willing servant I have been freed from my shackles and willingly put on new chains.  The chains of Love, that have bound me with a unceasing fervour.

This Love is not even an emotion, but an awareness.  It strips off all knowledge of things and bears the pure longing of ones soul and the burning desire within the heart of all things.  How can such a Love create barriers?  Indeed it does not even break the barriers between people but completely transcends them.  With this Love I rejoice at the saints, but my heart explodes even more before a sinner with such passion to the point of sharing in their sorrow and suffering.  I know the suffering of a soul lost in sin, and I bear witness to this Love that has lifted me up.  It is through this Love that I myself have come to love both the sinner and saint.  

What is this Love that has filled my soul, and brought this prideful sinner to his knees in awe?

I think I know who you are………

I think I know what you have done to me…..

All I can say is I Love you too.

What about Desire ?

When the Creator desired to form a creature and to fill that creature with His Endless Abundance the Soul was born.  The Altruistic Force of Bestowal, with His Thought Of creation formed a mirror image (reciprocal) to receive this abundance, the will to receive.  What else can a creature be but a vessel to receive what the Creator wills to give it.  The desire to give and the desire to receive complete each others actions.  The will to receive,  we see this in all kingdoms of nature from the simplest of single celled organisms right through the plant kingdom, animal kingdom and finally speaking kingdom.  Each consecutive kingdom an increasing desire to receive. Within man is the desires of all previous kingdoms.  Like the mineral kingdom we desire to exist, the plant kingdom we desire water, mineral and solar energy, like the animal kingdom we desire food, shelter , sex.  Then the speaking (Human) kingdom of, wealth, honor, power and knowledge is added.  However is the speaking level the top of the pyramid?  Or are we forgetting the next evolutionary level( desire).  The level of soul, the true man, the spiritual man.  The next level or kingdom that humanity is evolving into is simply that next desire that is larger than all other levels it is the desire for the Creator……His light and His Thought.  Again all other levels/kingdoms are not left behind but encompass the whole and when the soul level reached completion all other levels/kingdoms reach perfection too.  The whole world is waiting for just you.  That is how special you are.  You suffer the whole world suffers with you, most people just cannot feel that yet.  This is because the suffering of others is not felt with our egoism, but the soul.  As the soul matures in the Creators light we not only feel the Creator, but Joys and suffering of all other souls. 

So love they neighbor as thyself is the only commandment, the rest means go study.  Just joking but in reality if you follow this spiritual law (commandment) you won’t step over the line with any of the others.  However the particularities within each law are needed because this worlds love is completely different from the Creators love, which is gradually being revealed to us.

So to get to the point, all we can do is cloth our will to receive the the intention to receive for the pleasure of the Creator.  All HE wants to do is give you Himself (Thought of Creation) however we must not receive egotistically but receive with the altruistic understanding that it pleases to Upper one.

Putting on the white robe or the wedding garment is our will to receive putting on a altruistic intention ( receive to please the Creator).  This is gradually given to us by our prayers for the Creator to change us.

It is all really like a mother, child relationship.  The mother is the Creator and giver, and all she wants to do is please her child.  When the child receives the mothers love and nurturing then the mother is pleased.  Therefore the child pleases the mother by taking from her.  The child is happy and the mother is happy….they complete each others actions.

If the child does not take from the mother then the mother is sad, and the child suffers too.  The child becomes the giver by taking to please the mother.  This is the only way we can give to the greater.    Our life mission here is not to stop taking, but to learn how to receive.

We do not feel the Creator because he is on the altruistic radio frequency, and we are tuned into the Egoistic channel.  Just add to your receiver the right intention ( altruism) and then you will receive be on the same channel.

We must achieve equivalence of form within our intentions towards the Creator (to bestow).  The spiritual world is the world of desire, thought and intentions, as you become more similar in theses aspect to the Creator you will sense His presence because you are becoming similar to Him.

In the spiritual world distance is measured only by similarity.  You are similar then you are close, you are not similar then you are far.  If you are opposite then you are as far away as East and West.

Whats Love Got To Do With It ???

When we are talking about love and connection, we are talking about the common desire within yourself and others for the revelation of the Creator.  The revelation will be revealed within the vessel that has been prepared to receive this revelation of the Creator, the housing for this Light..  This is the connection and the foundation of the love of others.  In this way the connection occurs on the level of desire and intention.  The spiritual world is not actually separate from the physical world, however it does transcend it, through a series of branches (consequences) stemming from the one root cause.  The physical world being the playing out of forces occurring within the Upper Heavens (Degrees) all originating from the Root, which can be seen as THE THOUGHT OF THE CREATOR, TO CREATE A CREATURE AND FILL IT WITH INFINITE JOY.

There is of course an egoistic version of love.  Such as I love something because it brings me happiness or gives me something.  However the love that is altruistic is not really an emotion but an awareness.  True love is seeing that we are all connected and that we live in an infinite sea of love called Creator.  It creates, supports and sustains us, and this is all that we need.  Once we tap into this ocean of life within our sensation (soul), we will no longer see others as stepping-stones for our own selfish goals.  Instead we will see that we are one collective creation surrounded by the Creator and love will become an awareness and not just a fleeting emotion.

TIDES OF SALVATION

Let the darkness that we reveal within ourselves become the pearls of our salvation. With Joy offer up our desire for correction to the Upper One. Let us live and advance as one body with one heart and mind, and create our foundation on this rock, so that the connections between us may become the very pillars that the Creator descends upon.

Like the tides of the ocean the Creator approaches, only to once again  pull away from me.  If I cannot control the tides, how much less can I hold unto Thee.  If I attempt to Hold unto Him I lose Him.  I can merely allow Him to flow through me like the wind through my branches.  A good father you embrace me and cause my sorrow to flee.  However when you pull away so I my walk on my feet made from faith, does my heart ache for THEE.

Random whispers from my Unknown

We must walk between the narrow path of knowledge and faith.  Blind faith with no knowledge and we are like a helpless baby.  Rely on knowledge alone with no faith and we will stumble.  So go gently with faith into the unknown with the knowledge that our destiny is certain.  

          

Righteousness

Righteousness is when a person is able to justify in their heart the Creators actions.  It seems like a simple enough statement, however the person often sees things in this world which he cannot justify to a good and benevolent Creator.  It is for this reason that he must have faith above his reason that the Creator is somehow acting for the benefit of His creation and that he has not attained a degree which enables Him to reveal the Creators motives.  It is a blessing that the Creator conceals this from him, or how else can the person grow in faith? 

If the person’s faith is not yet strong enough and within his heart he feels that the Creator is wrong in doing this then he falls from the state of righteousness and must work in strengthening His faith in the Upper Governance.  When the person again achieves a certain attainment of righteousness, then again the Creator will throw some stones along the way so that the person can see where his faith is towards the Creator,.  These stones are measuring blocks for the person to measure his progress, and are again sent from the Creator for His benefit.  The Creators actions towards the person are always for the benefit of the person’s soul which is the true and eternal body of man.  However often a person is not functioning from the level of his soul, and living within his other desires for this world.  Therefore the individual may forget that the Creator sends only good things to him ( Soul) which has nothing to do with pleasing his worldly desires.  A righteous person knows that all is vanity in this world and returns to the dust and desires only that the Creator please his soul. 

 A righteous person first seeks the kingdom of God within himself, and not the kingdom of this world outside himselfWhat does it gain a person to become a king in this world, yet within himself he is a poor slave devoid of any security or lasting joy?  What gains a person who seeks to control others, when he himself has no control over himself?  Would you not give all your Earthly possessions for freedom from your inner darkness?  We must strive to achieve this level of righteousness through faith in HIM now while we have this world, so that when it is taken away from us we do not blow away with the wind of change.    

A righteous person wants most of all to attain the degree called PERFECT LOVE, which is the Creator HIMSELF.  If a person  loves the Creator because he has given him an easy and effortless life with no struggle or strife then how can he exercise the chance at showing PERFECT LOVE to his maker.  He can only say that he loves HIM because he has given him so much in this world.  However only when he has taken away from a person things in this world, can a person know that he has in his heart this  PERFECT LOVE for the Creator.  A PERFECT LOVE is when man finds no condition in this world that the Creator has sent, to not justify the Creator as Just and Benevolent. 

Of course no one should wish only malice and pain, and live the life of an ascetic, Siddhartha Gautama (Buddha) learnt that this is not the way to Perfect Love.  Only when you achieve non-attachment can you truly enjoy things without the fear of losing themOnly when you give up what you once cherished, can something new and truly valuable be given to you.  Appreciate what the Creator has given to you in this world, and cherish the bounty of this world, but know all of it belongs to the Creator and he gives it and takes it away as is necessary for the Benefit of all the souls. 

The person falls from righteousness if he becomes unable to justify in his heart why the Creator has sent turmoil upon what he has built-in this world.  However the Creator does not nurture the desires of this world, that have appeared only because of the fall from adhesion to HIM.  The Creators Covenant is with the soul of man and not with his Earthly existence.    

In conclusion it is clear that the state of righteousness is not based on any physical action performed by a person, but in the ability to justify the Creators actions through Faith, which is an inner degree called Abraham.

  He eventually became a man who “believed the Lord, and he credited it to him as righteousness” (Genesis 15:6).

“By faith Abraham, when called to go to a place he would later receive as his inheritance, obeyed and went, even though he did not know where he was going” (Hebrews 11:8).

(Hebrews 11:8). On this occasion Abraham trusted God. But Abraham wasn’t perfect.

I must create and uncover the bible stories within myself, I must yearn and find the faith of Abraham within myself.  I must build the desire of Moses to free myself from my own enslavement to Pharoah ( Egoism).  I must build a love for the Creator that David gradually built.  The bible should be read as the story of your very soul, then the Light of Wisdom and Mercy will show itself to you……and all your eye will see is nothing  but HIM.

The Light and I

I have a soul which is a specific desire to be filled with the Creators Light that surrounds me.  I also have a nation of other desires that surround my soul.  These nations are desires for things of this world (wealth ,honor, power, knowledge, fame, ect) and the pleasures of the five senses .  These nations have no desire for the Creator. 

When the Light enters a vessel (soul), it imparts to the person its qualities and with it the spirit (MIND) of that Light can adorns the consciousness of the vessel.  So the Light enters a vessel and gives to the person its spirit ( MInd), with its elevated desires, thoughts and intentions. ( ALtruism).  As if a new person is reborn within you that takes pleasure in pleasing the Creator.  However if this Light does not enter then the spirit (MInd) of the Light cannot adorn the vessel , and the person is left with the spirit they were born into. ( Egoism)  This is why man cannot correct himself on his own without the Creator, because his nature is the root of the problem.  The natureof  man is a will to receives for His own benefit only.  His will to receive is not the problem only the intention attached with it, “For Himself”.  However with a realization of this nature, a demand for the Creator can be made to change this allowing the Light of correction to adorn our will to receive with a new intention, “For the Creator”.  The Creator wants to fill our soul with infinite Light and therefore give us the Holy Spirit (Mind) so that the person can know the Father, then a person works with the Creator through prayer that he may be given from Above this new nature (intention) FOR THE CREATOR .  We cannot “NOT” want to receive, however we need to start wanting what we were made for, and that is to be filled with the Creators Light.  It is not the wanting that is dysfunctional, but what we want that causes the problem with our original nature. 

Initially mans will to receive only for himself was very small, however throughout the generations that will to receive has been progressively expanding.  As this expansion progresses the dysfunction of the original intention connected to the will to receive becomes more and more apparent.  It is necessary for our will to receive to be huge because the Creator has a lot of Light to give us.  However our intention connected to this huge will to receive must be transformed from “FOR ME” to “FOR THE CREATOR”.   However our desire for everything else BUT the Creator  is the root of all suffering. 

It is the Light that must adorn our vessel with the Holy Spirit ( MIND) so that we can come to know our father.  Unless we come to the Light, then we cannot know our Father.  The father is known only with the Holy Spirit (HOLY MIND) and the Holy Mind comes only from the quality of the Light entering the vessel (soul).  The Light is the offspring of the Father, his only begotten, because the Light is the only thing that emanates from that great Unattainable Essence.   

Blessed

I have had the blessing of being born into spiritual exile from birth. There I lived and was raised by the shadows of the Creators concealment from me. I suffered the torment of an orphaned child who’s Father Above he had never known. My daily bread I ate, the molded bread of yearning and the hunger pains of doubt. I feared my emptiness would spread though eternity until the day of my resurrection.

T’was the Light who revived me and from the endless abyss, was made space for Him to dwell within me. All these nights searching for the House of My Father, and it was I His Temple.

 I have known the purpose of human suffering, it is through this very suffering that a place…..no a need for Him came from. How can you yearn for the Light without going through darkness. It is when you can leave the self at the door, that all others can see themselves within you.

Sometimes The Best Blog To Post Is Another’s

The various internet communities are a wonderful way for people all across this beautiful world to connect and share with each other.  The  unique  accounts and experiences shared are the tiny rays of our future Unity, breaking through our shells of separation .  Some of these account are sweet and others extremely bitter, however within both these extremes the souls desire and the human spirit shine strong.

I read this testimony and came to the conclusion that sometimes the best Blog to post is another’s.  I hope that the post below can bring into this world the power of the spiritual world.  I know it did for me.
