We are One

Faith Leads The Way

I started to write a blog about Faith and discovered I already had, LOL.  The point here is we all have more faith than we realize.  Perhaps my goals is to be devoted to Faith.  Not just any faith, but one that sustains us, a faith that uplifts and delivers us upon the gates of Truth.  May Infinite Intelligence fill your beingness to overflowing.  We are the Love we seek.

What is it to live without faith? Could you be living a faithful life without even knowing it? I believe most people are living in faith whether they consciously choose to or not. Over 90% of people believe in a higher power according to a recent Gallup poll so this easily translates to faithful living.

So just what is Faith? According to Dictionary.com it means:

1. confidence or trust in a person or thing: faith in another’s ability.

2. belief that is not based on proof: He had faith that the hypothesis would be substantiated by fact.

3. belief in God or in the doctrines or teachings of religion: the firm faith of the Pilgrims.

4. belief in anything, as a code of ethics, standards of merit, etc.: to be of the same faith with someone concerning honesty.

5. a system of religious belief: the Christian faith; the Jewish faith.

Number 3 means over 90% of the people have Faith! Number 4 is really general and would apply to ~99% of people as we all believe in something! (Atheism and Science are beliefs) So the proof is mounting, but then number 2 indicates we need no proof to have faith. Whatever you believe is true! For those who have been around a while having confidence or trust in another person is bound to have occurred at some point in your life and if you are a Spiritual person it is most likely a daily practice. The religious belief category is the only one which may not apply to the majority of people, although most have been there at one point or another in their lives. So you can see Faith is a part of everyone’s of life.

Making it a conscious part of your life simply takes the commitment to be aware of your practices. Practicing faith consciously is something we can all do easily. First of all look within to find your beliefs, principles, and morals. As you define them just be observant of your life – your words, behavior, and thoughts. How are they aligned with these beliefs? The more conscious you become the easier it is to align with the Faith you already have. Practice makes perfect is applicable here, however as your journey continues this becomes perfection is always present, now and forever. Faith is instinctual to one who has chosen it. Perfection resides in all things, places, and people the journey makes this perfectly clear!

Nobody is Ever Alone

We’re born alone, we live alone, we die alone. Only through our love and friendship can we create the illusion for the moment that we’re not alone.” Orson Welles

This quote makes one feel rather depressed, until they understand the truth here. See, it has to do with cosmology (our view of the world). Understanding means literally just that, standing under knowledge or simply having knowledge support you. What is it to “be alone”? Does it mean no one else is in the room or within eye sight? Be a lone. To be by oneself. Perhaps you have heard the saying, I am not alone, I am with me, myself, and I. <G>

We always have the voice within us, in fact we have both of them. The “i” and the “I”. The small ego self and the infinite intelligence self (some call this God). So the truth here is found in identifying who you really are. Are you the small self or the infinite self? The small self is confined to observable space around you, while the infinite self is well, infinite, meaning it includes everything and everyone.

We have a choice here to look with “i” eyes or “I” eyes. To see with small self or infinite self. Since we normally are being lead by the “i” it takes a conscious choice to see with “I”. A daily practice of saying I choose Infinity (God). I am not alone, I am free, I am just as God created me… I am Spirit, I am not this body or anything physical. I am here to enjoy the ride and place my journey in God’s hands.

Faith is developed just like any skill and is maintained by use just like any muscle or tool. Stand under Infinity (God) with Faith and know, No body is ever alone! If you are Spirit without an actual real body then you cannot die. Yes, consciousness shifts as does this illusion we call life. It is comforting to understand that our death is illusion and reality is always with us. To find it look within. Feel the Love.

Space/Time and The Five Questions

Our universe consists of space/time and time/space both of which are mirror images of the other.  At the moment you are in space/time because you experience the physical world set in a certain time.  Space has 3 dimensions and time only one.  The mirror of this time/space has 3 dimensions of time and space only one.  In reality both have 3 dimensions.  Space is up/down, left/right, forward/backward and time is past, present, future.  The space/time physical experience only has the one time element, present, i.e. the time is NOW.

Having explained this very basic law of physics you now know where you are, right?  Not really….  This would require you know who you are and what you are.  The who, what, when, where and why questions of existence make life worth living in my humble opinion.  These are questions which have been intriguing mankind for millennia!  This essay will attempt to give an answer to each of them to some degree of practicality.

Of course these are answers I have arrived at and you may well arrive some place else!  Take what you read here with a grain of salt and move on with a bit more knowledge than which you arrived.  Let us start with the who.

Who are you?  In space/time we tend to experience ourselves as bodies, we think we are human beings or the animal human.  The flesh and blood human is in fact a vehicle or medium of experiencing this physical reality.  It is not ‘who’ you are, but perhaps where you are!  The where of our 5 questions can then be extended to the place of the physical body, i.e. sitting in a chair eating breakfast at the dining room table staring out the window at the fluffy white clouds as they float carelessly by.

As one question is answered all the questions are answered because the whole of it is One.  Understand our separation of each aspect/question is arbitrary and only used to help deepen the understanding of existence.  So we now know where we are.  Where the body is, is where you are at least in space/time.

The question of when you are is fairly simple since space/time has only one dimension, here and now.  So the where and when are answered rather easily.  The who, what, and why of it all are answered in concert because they are intrinsically connected.  I offer up only what I have learned from my studies and leave it to you to question further, as I am doing.

What I am, is an individuation of Source, Infinite Intelligence, God, which is also ‘who’ I am.  Same answer to both questions!  So who is God, Source, Infinite Intelligence?  That question is best left to another essay.  I will say that what and who I am is consciousness itself, and the when and where are subjective and relative to the physical experience of the physical body I identify with.  Why, is an arbitrary question and depends on the individuals interpretation of the other 4 questions.  Why for me is to know they self.  It is so God, Source, Infinite Intelligence can know itself.  Like pieces of a puzzle each person, place, and thing make up the whole and further define God, Source, Infinite Intelligence.  The combinations and experiences are infinite so the journey never ends!

The Human Gift

We all have certain ‘gifts’ which we are born with.  They have been developed over many lifetimes.  Each time you learn a lesson or develop a skill it becomes a part of you.  (You are what you eat)  It is sort of like picking a fruit from the Garden of Eden and this fruit is not forbidden.  In fact it is waiting on the vine just for you!   Some would call this destiny, others opportunity.  Whatever you call it, a gift is a gift!

Imagine yourself in a big dark forest.  You look around and see a path so you start walking.  Along the way you see other paths.  You get confused, and wonder which one is the right one?  But then you remember, God is infinite intelligence and you trust the path before you was placed there for a reason.  The most illuminated path is the one to enlightenment!  So off you go on your Journey of Love…

Life is so simple.  The easy part is up to you.  Most important is believing in yourself and having faith in Divine Guidance.  It is a human gift to have this direct connection to Divine Source!  We are conscious of it and thus make the aware decision to follow the path to enlightenment.  Along the way we realize enlightenment is our divine birthright of which we were born.  Yes, you are enlightened and as you become aware of this gift, the light gets brighter and brighter; the path clearer and more rewarding.

Humanity is a gift unto itself!  Society has many tools for exploring this gift.  The one most of us enjoy is story telling.  The movies and TV make this process very compelling, because you can experience another’s journey indirectly and learn about yourself in the process.  The moral shared most often in these stories is the most profound lesson of them all.  “Love is the most powerful force in the Universe.”  We have heard this so many times that many forget its importance.  Love is who we are, not what we seek!  Did you get that?  Once again, You are Love, expressing!!  What greater gift to humanity could there possibly be?

Are You Man Or Woman?

Do you feel like a man or like a woman?  What is a certain gender supposed to feel like?  How do you know?  I realize that most cisgender people have not considered these questions, but for a transgender or transsexual individual it is of constant concern.  Gender incongruency is something that ~98% of the population can’t even fathom.  What if the concept of gender as taught in the schools the last 100 years is inaccurate?

First understand the difference between sex and gender.  Sex is determined by the parts between the legs and gender is determined by the parts between the ears.  At least this is the modern or current understanding by science. Consider the possibility that each person is here in this reality for a purpose and they have chosen the roles they are to live before they are even born.

What if in fact gender is determined by consciousness, the field which surrounds the body and everything in creation.  What if no one is born with a gender and instead they acquire it.  Much like sexual orientation must be discovered by the individual.  I cannot tell my brother that he is gay or straight or if he is man or woman.  These are things he must discover.  Life is a discovery!  And we are explorers. 

The prevalent teaching about God or Great Spirit or Universal Mind or Infinite Intelligence (or whatever you choose to call this energy) is that it has no sex or gender.  Eastern philosophies have known this for centuries and in the past few centuries the western philosophies are accepting that God is not a man sitting on a throne up in heaven, some people more than others.  I do not have actual statistics on this, but from what I gather this concept is changing. 

The idea I present here today is that God is all there is and since God is all, so are we.  This means that no one has a gender or a sex in reality!  Those things only exist in this reality we call life on earth.  We are indeed all androgynous beings of light!  You may have seen this image presented before as alien life, for instance in the movie Cocoon (1985) or in episodes of Star Trek and in multiple instances in the media.  Everything is energy.

I mention the idea of androgyny here because I feel this is the truth of nature.  I believe that hetero and homo sexuality are creations of the human mind or the mind of man.  This goes for what makes up a man or woman, male or female also.  How do you know what a man or woman feels like?  You do not, anymore than anyone else does.  Just because you seem to have been born male or female does not mean you know what a man or woman feels like. It is what you say it is.

In the end you feel like YOU.  Accept this feeling and get comfortable with it; it is all you will ever have in this lifetime.  No matter what you change on the outside, the inner core remains the same.  The experience will change and this is the point of the material world anyway.  Enjoy the ride and only act with authenticity in your life.  Live with pride!  This is your role in life and it is mine.
