3 Months Enriching and Lifting Conscious Awareness
UNDER THE GOVERNMENT OF GOD (GOOD; LOVE)
Just a blink away from your immediate apprehension is the True Kingdom - the Only Actual Kingdom, the Kingdom of God, Good, Love, Heaven - BEING your complete and utter fulfilled experience of Life.
Every tiny detail is in place, prepared for you - "I prepare a place for you (John 14:2); before you call I will answer (Isaiah 65:24)."
Every breath, every step, every purpose, every activity and the utter fulfillment thereof is ALREADY FINISHED and COMPLETE in every way AS You and For You.
The Kingdom is Finished, not still under construction. The Finished Kingdom is the ONLY Kingdom - the Kingdom Being the Whole of Itself AS YOU, here, now, eternally unfolding, revealing more and greater aspects and facets of the sublime and inconceivable Truth of Being; God.
Remember our first Truth which tells us just this:
"All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made." (Gospel of John 1:3)
"God saw every thing that he had made, and, behold, it was very good." (Genesis 1:31)
His "works were finished from the foundation of the world." (Hebrews 4:3)
Therefore let us again state our opening sentence: "Just a blink away from your immediate apprehension is the True Kingdom - the Only Actual Kingdom, the Kingdom of God, Good, Love, Heaven - BEING your complete and utter fulfilled experience of Life."
STOP HERE, AND FEEL THE KINGDOM "CLOSER THAN BREATHING"
Stop here for 5 or 10 or 30 minutes before carrying on.
FEEL the Finished Kingdom - the Kingdom of God, Truth, You - happening AS THE VERY YOU YOU ARE HERE, NOW, "closer than breathing".
FEEL Its rhythm.
FEEL Its gentle pulse happening as You.
FEEL Its Peace, Its Love, Its Grace happening as You.
All you need to do to FEEL ITS BLISS happening as You is to stop your busy material mind, turn within, and be still.
"Be still, and know that I (your very Consciousness) am God."
"Stand still and see (feel; witness; experience) the salvation (the presence; the fullness; the completeness) of the Lord which he will show you this day (this very moment)."
Bathe in It; let It flood you, permeate you, fill you full (fill your conscious awareness; have you be fully CONSCIOUSLY AWARE) of Itself.
Be peace; be still.
Listen; be open; receive. That's all.
IT IS TIME TO TRULY IGNORE APPEARANCE
From your standpoint (degree of awareness) or mine, the Kingdom looks somewhat incomplete, out of place, contentious, unhappy, limited, lacking, discordant, diseased, unsafe, insecure, unreliable.
But this 'view' of the Kingdom is a low or foggy degree of awareness, not true seeing, or clear seeing. "I see but I see with glasses darkly."
'Apprehension' - 'seeing clearly' - is the ONLY aspect of being we are dealing with in awakening. Nothing else.
Awakening is just this: awakening - becoming 'clear-sighted' - to THAT WHICH ALREADY IS TRUTH - THE MIRACLE OF GOD BEING ITSELF IN INFINITE EXPRESSION - RIGHT HERE, HAPPENING AS YOU.
Our state of AWARENESS - APPREHENSION - of Truth determines our state of experience.
Nothing we see, hear, taste, touch, smell or think is apprehension of Truth. Rather it is apprehension of CONCEPTS of Truth, but never Truth Itself.
Yet RIGHT HERE - wherever you see, hear, taste, touch, smell and whatever you think - is Holy Ground - the fullness of God in the fullness of expression, All-Complete, Whole, Perfect, Purposeful, Joyous and Free.
Indeed, IT IS TIME TO TRULY IGNORE APPEARANCE.
NEVER judge by appearance.
NOTHING of appearance, EVER, is Truth. Therefore IGNORE IT.
NOTHING that seems to be, Is. (Revisit Week 7 Message). Therefore NOTHING that seems to be 'good' Is; NOTHING that seems to be 'bad' Is.
Why judge therefore?
Why fret? Why worry? Why fear? Why make struggle and strive for either to improve the 'bad' things and conditions of appearance or multiply the 'good' things and conditions of appearance?
THAT IS WHERE WE FAIL as awakening beings. We have not taken Jesus' decree LITERALLY - "Take no thought for your life (for life as it appears; the world and all its detail as it appears to 'human' apprehension)." "Judge not according to appearance..."
"... but judge righteous judgement."
Judge by TRUTH ALONE; GOD ALONE; SPIRIT AND TRUTH ALONE.
Forget about appearance and immerse yourself in God, in Consciousness.
Close eyes, turn 'within' (to your consciousness) where you are unperturbed by appearance, and think:
All is God.
Nothing exists that exists that is not God and the Whole thereof.
God Is; nothing 'else' is.
Therefore ALL is under the government of God, for there is none else.
Look anywhere in your world - at anything that appears to be; anything of the 3-dimensional, conceptual appearance - and realize immediately that what appears is NOT TRUE, NOT REAL therefore has no power, no substance, no form, no life, no amount, no quality of its own.
What you are TRULY, LITERALLY observing is the Fullness of God at, and as, the very point of awareness you are experiencing.
As you now perceive the 'withinness' (the Truth) of this experience (this appearing being, thing, amount, activity or condition) realize that 'it' is ACTUALLY - despite all appearance - fully governed by, and as, the God Present It truly Is.
Not a hair is missing or out of place.
Not a 'person' or 'thing' or 'condition' of absolute fulfillment is separate or apart from this very place you are observing.
Omnipresence is this very place and condition you are observing. Nothing 'else'; nothing 'different'. Omnipresence - the Whole of God, Good, Life, Love, Freedom, Completeness, Fulfilled Purpose of Being - YOUR TRUTHFUL BEING - Is Actually this place, this condition, you are observing; you are BEING as consciousness happening this moment.
It doesn't matter where you place your consciousness - your mind, your body, your family, your home, your neighborhood, your community, country, world, universe or any finite detail of it - right there what you are ACTUALLY OBSERVING (which means ACTUALLY BEING, for all is consciousness) is the utter Perfection and unadulterated Completeness of God, Good, Love, Fulfillment of Being, unconditional Freedom of All under the divine Government of Itself.
All 'parts' are present, complete, perfect, here, now.
Nothing is missing from the utter fulfillment of each 'place' of awareness - each place you observe; each place of consciousness happening (you happening).
It is true that as we look out through the lens of the mind this Truth appears not to be so. That is why Jesus instructed, even admonished: "JUDGE NOT ACCORDING TO APPEARANCE."
That which APPEARS TO BE as we observe the 3-dimensional images (experiences) of the mind are a lie. Nothing more than false or foggy or 'dark' IMAGES.
Nothing the mind experiences is real! ALL mind experience is CONCEPT, FALSE IMAGE, NON-REALITY. Therefore why judge what 'is' and what is 'not' BY THAT IMAGERY?
Interestingly, Webster describes "image" as:
1 : a reproduction or imitation of the form of a person or thing; especially : an imitation in solid form : statue
2a : the optical counterpart of an object produced by an optical device (as a lens or mirror) or an electronic device b : a visual representation of something: as (1) : a likeness of an object produced on a photographic material (2) : a picture produced on an electronic display (as a television or computer screen)
3 : exact likeness : semblance (God created man in his own image — Genesis 1:27)
4a : a tangible or visible representation : incarnation (the image of filial devotion) b archaic : an illusory form : apparition
5a (1) : a mental picture or impression of something (had a negative body image of herself) (2) : a mental conception held in common by members of a group and symbolic of a basic attitude and orientation (a disorderly courtroom can seriously tarnish a community's image of justice — Herbert Brownell) b : idea, concept
6 : a vivid or graphic representation or description
7 : figure of speech
8 : a popular conception (as of a person, institution, or nation) projected especially through the mass media (promoting a corporate image of brotherly love and concern — R. C. Buck)
Realize: any image (conceptual, 3-dimensional, finite) is a SUBJECTIVE experience, and if subjective then of OPINION either collectively and individually, therefore NEVER of Reality.
My friends, stop - once and for all - judging by appearance: believing it, reacting to it, loving, hating or fearing it.
It LITERALLY - even in and of the 'worldly, human, mental, material, physical' experience - is NOTHING but false imagery; subjective, conceptual, 3-dimensional, 'human' experience just we can say watching a movie is "nothing but false imagery; subjective, conceptual, 3-dimensional, 'human' experience".
OUR WORK THIS TENTH WEEK
Rest just a blink deeper than on appearance. Rest back in and as That which is True, here, everywhere, wherever you place your awareness.
Realize that THIS VERY PLACE "on which you stand" is HOLY GROUND, WHOLE AND COMPLETE Being, Body, Thing, Activity, Amount and Condition - God Itself - under the "fullness thereof", the Fullness of Itself, the Full Government of Itself - of God, Good, Life, Love, Completeness of Joy, Harmony and Peace, fulfillment of Being in every Way.
Rest, rest, rest IN THE GOVERNMENT OF GOD BEING ALL.
Think DEEPLY about ALL BEING THE FINISHED KINGDOM OF GOOD, and ALL BEING GOVERNED BY THAT GOOD - Life, Love, Fulfillment of Joy, Abundance of All Thing and Circumstance and Activity, unconditional to anything you do or fail to do, think or fail to think, anything either 'negative' or 'positive' in appearance or deed.
Think, think, THINK.
Realize that EVERY TINY DETAIL of your experience - without exception, without condition - is governed and complete as the WHOLE OF GOOD happening as, and for, YOUR EXPERIENCE.
Ponder these things deeply, gently, sacredly for there is no other Truth, no other Reality, no other World, no other You, no other Experience.
Then LET the governed experience of Truth become, in your sacred silence and receptivity, "a fountain of water springing up into everlasting life," - the Truth experience of all discordant appearance becoming harmonious, healthy, happy, wise, abundant and divinely fulfilled for "His Purpose", the Good of All universally and unconditionally.
With My Love,
