3 Months Enriching and Lifting Conscious Awareness
Consider these 5 aspects of Truth:
* Truth is infinite; Truth is THE Infinite.
* Truth is omnipresent: the Whole of God, The Infinite, is present at every point of Itself at the same time.
* Truth is ever Manifest, Tangible and Visible. There is no 'unmanifest, intangible or invisible' Truth.
* Truth is One; Oneness. "There is no other"; there is not 'two' or 'twoness'. There is nothing, anywhere, under any circumstance or condition but the One Truth, therefore the One Infinity of Being, Thing, Amount, Activity and Condition. There is not God 'and'. There is JUST GOD; JUST TRUTH; JUST INFINITY; JUST WHOLENESS AND COMPLETENESS OF ALL everywhere present.
* Because Truth is One BEING Oneness, Omnipresence BEING Omnipresent, It does not and cannot 'change' Its Substance, Form, Character, Nature, Presence. Consider: where would that 'change' be happening, or exist, in omnipresence BEING omnipresent; in One BEING Oneness?
The more your individual consciousness and mine is BEING Truth - which means constantly knowing and BEING these 5 aspects of Truth rather than that of a lower 'level' or 'degree' of awareness that accepts material, physical, finite existence - the more the infinity of Being is experienced as real, tangible and practical in every situation and condition of daily experience.
THE MISTAKE WE MAKE
The more we seek Truth to reveal Itself as harmony of one sort or another in our lives (our conceptual experience), and the more urgently we seek It - usually because an experience of illness, unhappiness, lack, limitation or insecurity is affecting us - the more we 'chase' the un-chasable.
It is in 'chasing the un-chasable' that we delay Truthful experience - the miracle of Truth tangibly evidencing Itself as our everyday conceptual harmony, health, wealth, peace, happiness and purpose; our true infinity, freedom and purpose of being.
'Chasing' Truth is what we do when look for 'THE SECRET' on page after page of book after book; by traveling the world's 'holy places' hoping to discover It there; listening to dozens of class audios, or attending dozens of live classes hoping that THEY, or the NEXT ONE will reveal It to us; latching onto truth statement after truth statement trying to evidence the truth it speaks of, or trying to 'make' its truth 'work' in our experience.
As we have discovered 'chasing' Truth does not, and cannot, work.
It is only when we come to realize that WE ALREADY ARE TRUTH, and that everything everywhere already is, and contains, THE FULLNESS OF TRUTH that we become still and quiet and are able to begin witnessing Truth as everyday experience.
THE WHOLE OF INFINITY IS THE ONLY PRESENCE
Because Truth is indivisible... because the WHOLE exists at every point in infinity at the same time... ONE Truth statement (any Truth statement) is, and contains, the WHOLE TRUTH.
In other words, any ONE Truth statement is, and contains, the WHOLE 'secret' of awakening.
We haven't recognized this, and so we do not stick with one Truth statement, deepening our understanding of it, enriching consciousness with its truth. Thereby we miss it; we pass by the very truth we're seeking.
Yet 'enriching' consciousness by taking one, or just a very few, truth statements and really 'working' with them, seeking the depth and richness of their truth, and letting that revealed truth become evident in our experience, is the great key to illuminating consciousness (spiritual awakening).
This 'enriching' of consciousness is what Jesus explains in the Parable of the Sower (Bible; Mark 4):
1 And again He began to teach by the sea. And a great multitude was gathered to Him, so that He got into a boat and sat in it on the sea; and the whole multitude was on the land facing the sea.
2 Then He taught them many things by parables, and said to them in His teaching:
3 Listen! Behold, a sower went out to sow.
4 And it happened, as he sowed, that some seed fell by the wayside; and the birds of the air came and devoured it.
5 Some fell on stony ground, where it did not have much earth; and immediately it sprang up because it had no depth of earth.
6 But when the sun was up it was scorched, and because it had no root it withered away.
7 And some seed fell among thorns; and the thorns grew up and choked it, and it yielded no crop.
8 But other seed fell on good ground and yielded a crop that sprang up, increased and produced: some thirtyfold, some sixty, and some a hundred.
9 And He said to them, He who has ears to hear, let him hear! 10 But when He was alone, those around Him with the twelve asked Him about the parable.
11 And He said to them, To you it has been given to know the mystery of the kingdom of God; but to those who are outside, all things come in parables,
12 so that seeing they may see and not perceive, And hearing they may hear and not understand; Lest they should turn (to truth)... 13 And He said to them, Do you not understand this parable? How then will you understand all the parables?
14 The sower sows the word.
15 And these are the ones by the wayside where the word is sown. When they hear, Satan (material belief) comes immediately and takes away the word that was sown in their hearts.
16 These likewise are the ones sown on stony ground who, when they hear the word, immediately receive it with gladness;
17 and they have no root in themselves, and so endure only for a time. Afterward, when tribulation or persecution arises for the word’s sake, immediately they stumble.
18 Now these are the ones sown among thorns; they are the ones who hear the word,
19 and the cares of this world, the deceitfulness of riches (material belief and desire), and the desires for other things entering in choke the word, and it becomes unfruitful.
20 But these are the ones sown on good ground, those who hear the word, accept it, and bear fruit: some thirtyfold, some sixty, and some a hundred.
ENRICHING CONSCIOUSNESS IS THE KEY
The key to illumined consciousness is DEPTH of Truth awareness. The DEPTH of truth awareness is the "good ground" Jesus speaks of, which bears rich fruit (rich harmonious conceptual experience): some thirtyfold, some sixty, and some a hundred.
We enrich consciousness by DEEPENING truth awareness.
"Know the truth and the truth will set you free." We can interpret: "The greater DEPTH of truth you know, the greater freedom and fruitage of life you experience."
Why? Consciousness IS tangible experience - tangible body, form, amount, activity, condition. Therefore, the DEPTH of truth consciousness we are BEING IS the 'richness' of truth experience we evidence conceptually.
Remember: All is One BEING Oneness, the 'inner' and the 'outer' being One not two; not different. Consciousness does not 'produce' conceptual experience; consciousness BEING THE ONE INFINITE PRESENCE AND SUBSTANCE - having no 'inner' versus 'outer' - IS the substance, form, body, amount, activity and condition that looks (appears to be) conceptual as we observe the content of consciousness 'through' the conceptual (human) mind.
Therefore the greater DEPTH of truth we have (know), the greater depth of truth we evidence (as in The Parable of the Sower).
OUR WEEK #1 WORK
Next week we will be taking three primary truth statements we will work with for 12 weeks. This first week we need to prepare and fertilize the soil of consciousness in readiness for the 'planting' of the three truth statements next Sunday.
We do this by deepening our understanding of what has been given us this week. The DEEPER we understand what has been explained above, the MORE prepared and fertilized becomes our soil of consciousness.
We want - as Jesus shared - for our consciousness to be the "good ground" that has depth and the nutrients of understanding and acceptance that yield rich fruitage - "(This) seed fell on good ground and yielded a crop that sprang up, increased and produced: some thirtyfold, some sixty, and some a hundred."
I suggest we each read this week's message at least once per day, ideally two, three, four times a day. Then take it into meditation, pondering it, awakening to it, understanding it, realizing it.
Interlace pondering with silence in and through which that which you have pondered now 'takes root and grows' - reveals more and more of itself as true and real.
Devote at least 4 hours a day to reading this, meditating upon it, and to silence through and as which It speaks.
YOU ARE IN 'MY' CONSCIOUSNESS 24 HOURS A DAY
You - as this group - are held and maintained in 'my' consciousness 24 hours a day.
Know this, and rest in it as much as you can or wish to throughout these 13 weeks. 'My' consciousness maintained for you acts as illumination and an open doorway for your experience.
Take our 13 weeks work seriously and have fun with it too. It is powerful enough to take seriously; it is joyous enough to have fun with. Then we will witness miracles throughout the group as we progress.
Until next week, with Love,
