We are One

Life is Black and White

Life is black and white, if it weren’t, this would not be a duality. We have up/down, hot/cold, here/there, male/female, and dead/alive. These in reality are all the same, just viewed from opposite positions. Like a coin. So if this is all true, then how come we see colors and shades of gray? I have often wondered this myself until I learned the ways of the ego mind. The ego is our separate self. The aspect of life which believes it is separate from everything else. It is our individuality. In reality there is no you and me, here and there, but our mind makes it so.

It is rare person who can see beyond the veil and I do NOT claim to be one of them. I do seem to have a gift of systems or wholeness vision. So while I cannot see pure non-dualism (perfect oneness) I know it as the truth. Maybe I have faith, though to me it is simply a knowing. Love is all there is. Using words like Love, God, or Faith is where we often go off the rails. Our dualistic ego minds just cannot go there. It is a whole other Universe and yet it’s not. Take dreaming as an example.

Our dreams often are of fantastic places which seem familiar but are not real. They are metaphorical, symbols, shapes, places, or happenings which represent our thoughts. Dreams are something we awaken from and then struggle to interpret. This in itself tells us they are of the ego. We have the dream world and the waking world all of which are illusions of the ego mind. Nothing to get upset about, literally nothing.

So where does color and shades of gray come from? The ego mind, simply put. Our separate minds have created our entire world! “All that we see or seem. Is but a dream within a dream.” (Edgar Allan Poe) Where do we go from here? A question I have been asking myself for several decades, LOL. The obvious answer is Forward and yet that is unhelpful. My answer has always been go with the heart. Now what does that mean?

It is not a felt emotion, but a knowing from beyond form. It is the center of things, so let’s get to the heart of the issue. We are constantly making choices in life and it all boils down to are we choosing ego or Spirit (the knowing from beyond). Some call it gut instinct and I have to chuckle at that since our guts are full of bacteria with separate lives all their own. I think what they really mean is listen to Holy Spirit, not the separate self. Pay no attention to that which is caught up in form, shape, and structure. The physical world is not the path to follow. Simply put and I love simple, follow the unspoken, unfelt, loving path! Since Love is all there is, it is not about feeling, being, or doing. It is about letting go of all you thought you knew.

Slight of Mind Revisited

The actions you take are necessary as proof to yourself that it is not only possible but reality.  The concept of reality is not as fixed as one would believe and because of this we are constantly testing reality.  If it happens then it must be true is the mentality we use.

Have you ever been to a magic show?  Is that reality?  Does the rabbit really disappear from the hat? Of course it does, the question is where does it go?  If reality was fixed could we even believe a trick like this?  Don’t we have to know there is a possibility of the rabbit actually disappearing to make this trick work?  Deep down we all know that this 3d world is an illusion.

A trigger is required for us to believe a certain event.  Let’s take surgery for instance.  Say a large benign tumor exists, can be seen on x-ray and with a large bulge in the skin.  We wish this tumor to be gone.  How do we make it go away?  We go to a surgeon and he cuts it out.  Why don’t we go to the magician to make it disappear?  Belief, personal experience and precedent!

We need matching action of a believable nature to create the result we seek.  The movies use this technique all the time.  Two scenes are shot at different times and spliced together to give the appearance they happened in sequence. (Called Matching Action)  It is a trick for the mind!  In fact movies are all about tricks, they are actually a series of still images shown very quickly ~16 frames per second (sometimes faster up to 32 FPS) and appear to be moving…appear to be real.

Surgery is the matching action, like in the movies, which allows the mind to perceive a miracle cure!  When in reality it is done at a level beyond the mind.  Reality exists beyond the mind and the mind is our lens to this world.  Without the ego mind this world does not exist!  This is why the mind needs proof, i.e. surgery to experience the healing.  The Spirit does not need this trick, because it operates at the level of reality and knows there is no tumor at all.  There never was, because in reality we are perfect beings of light/energy made in the image of God/Universal Intelligence/Great Spirit.

The magic trick diverts the attention while the appearance is manipulated, but in reality the rabbit does not even exist so anything that is done is perfectly believable.  Now that we have this information, do we still need surgery to remove a tumor?  Or make a rabbit disappear?  This depends on your level of belief and faith in reality!

Ps. Apply this to SRS/GRS and ask yourself if you really need surgery to believe who you are?  In the Spirit world there is no gender… perhaps this is what you desire.

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!

Hope is the Denial of Reality

Hope: the quintessential fabrication of man.  The word is hollow and gives promises it cannot deliver.  Hope misguides, vilifies, and pontificates!  Do you have any idea what the word actually means?  Let us venture into the world of Hope.

“Hope is the denial of reality.” ~ Margaret Weis, Dragons of Winter Night

Dictionary.com states the meaning this way: the feeling that what is wanted can be had or that events will turn out for the best; to feel that something desired may happen.  Look very closely at this wording and examine the feeling it brings.

First of all Hope is a feeling, not something tangible or concrete.  It is a want, a state of mind that acknowledges a possibility but not a reality.  Wanting is another hollow feeling that can give nothing more than the feeling!  “May happen” is a statement of doubt.  It is saying, “This is something that may happen but I doubt it will”.

Is doubt what you intend?  Maybe it is just a good feeling that you desire?  From my experience this is precisely what is being requested.  “I desire to feel good” There is nothing better for making you feel good than Hope!!  However, that is all you will get!

If you truly desire the outcome you “hope” for, then I recommend dropping the word and choosing a more positive and affirmative request.  I trust all is well in my world!  I feel positive you will get what is coming to you.  May all your dreams be true!

Do you get the idea?  Come not from a place of Hope (doubt) but a place of Trust (faith).  Know that your desires are met, the moment you express them.  The form may be different than you imagined, but rest assured they are true in some form.

“Hope is a state of mind, not of the world. Hope, in this deep and powerful sense, is not the same as joy that things are going well, or willingness to invest in enterprises that are obviously heading for success, but rather an ability to work for something because it is good.”  ~Vaclav Havel

Vaclav has a positive view of Hope and I wish to end on the positive.  Hope is not bad, it is simply a feeling.  If a feeling is what you desire then Hope is your word.  If however you desire a tangible experience try using Trust or Faith.  Know that our desires are real and this is your experience!  Look deeply and you will see this truth.  Be aware what you wish for, you will get it!

Death, The Final Transition

Death is a transition that many of us are either curious about almost to the point of obsession or afraid of the very mention of the word.  I for one have always been of the former group.  So let me share what I have learned in my many years here on earth. 

Before we can understand death we must understand life.  Life is a state of consciousness where you are aware of here and now.  Death on the other hand is a totally different state of consciousness.  The best example of this is when you go to sleep.  It is said by some that when you sleep that it is a form of death and that the sleep state is a stopover between two worlds.  Again the dream world is another state of consciousness where we are in touch with our soul. 

If you want to know what it is like to die – go to sleep.  I am sure some of you may have a differing opinion and you would be correct, because we each have our own concept of reality.  Again there are some good books that go into this subject of dying and life after death.  My favorite is Neale Donald Walsch’s book, Home with God in a Life that Never Ends.  In this book he states that you never do die, you merely change consciousness. 

If you knew that you never die, what would you do differently in this lifetime?  What does change is the life experience you are having now with all its conditions, situations, limitations, and experiences.  These things are changing constantly and it is our concept of who we are, our beliefs and perceptions that create this world that we see and experience.  Judge not lest ye be judged is an old bible saying that fits here very well.  Life is to be lived not judged good or bad. 

What exactly happens when we die?  It really depends on what you believe, literally.  If you believe that you are going to hell for whatever reason, then this is what you will experience.  Or if you believe that you are going to heaven then you will experience your version of that.  Perception and belief really is king and if you ever what to know what you believe then simply look around you!  You created it all.
