A Cold World

pexels-photo-60726.jpegIt is to the general consensus that our history relative to modern day is something not to be celebrated. Some of the most notable men in history are those notorious for heinous, volatile acts distinguishable only by their names. As children, we remain naked and bare, vulnerable and impressionable to the very judgements of our history. We are reminded of the irrevocable, contemptible lives of our ancestors, or the oppression of society centuries ago. The echoes of Hitler and Stalin, or Genghis Khan are imprinted into our young minds. We are reminded that conditions then were unbearable and that we are to be grateful for our delicate luxuries of today. We are taught that it is human nature that is ugly, and cowardly, and bitter. It is to these conditions that we graduate from childhood with the message that the world is cold, so it is in our best interest to become cold with it. That belief inevitably stems outwardly which creates the fertile conditions for the world to be ugly, and cowardly, and bitter. It is then impossible for history to not be condemned to repeating itself.

However, we need to remember that the seemingly frostbitten world is rooted in the transformable nature of belief. It is rooted in the shame inherent in our history and the examples of men centuries ago; not in truth.

To the opposing side of the spectrum, there has been a great many individuals in our history who have embodied what is to be celebrated. Due to life circumstance or abstract thinking, the individual, instead of submitting to the coldness in the world, respond to it. These figures, from Jesus to Ghandi, or Socrates to Einstein, respond to it in such a manner that they are to go into the exact direction of it. Meaning, rather than polarizing from their own suffering, they instead integrate with it. These extremely rare but most notable individuals submit to the coldness inherent in the world within the presence of their own consciousness. They have somehow found a way to mold the feelings present inside the negative to benefit them in a way where it is treated as intrinsic motivation and not external motivation. To the courageous few that do so, they become the enlightened thinkers of the world, the inventors, the poets and the artists, the spiritual leaders, and the prominent activists. 

In a plethora of perspectives, the world could be in fact, one coveted by negativity. It is one to be ashamed of, one to be feared. To say that it is easy to find yourself depressed by it is an understatement. The world is cold, so it may just be in your best interest to be cold with it. But it is also true that this is nothing more than perceivable facts birthed by the belief that humanity is unworthy. But to those who are courageous enough to believe the antithesis of that, do not become cold on the basis that the world is also, instead, light it on fire.

 

 

 

The Awakening

IMG_0773

The world, as it seems, is in much chaos. People are led astray from their connection with their hearts and the lives surrounding them. It is difficult to contemplate what would happen if people completely halted the listening of their own internal voices. It unnerves me that the majority of people are still unconscious of the fact.

But it is promised to call upon a new understanding unto this Earth. As expressed physically, human beings at the core, are such exquisite and beautiful souls. The only component it seems, is that we are involuntarily handicapped to realize this ourselves. The modalities in which we treat ourselves are nothing less than acts of self-hatred which is fueled by modern society.

It is that I ask from the quiet space of my heart to extinguish our fears relative to our uncertainty about spirituality. It is understandable, as exemplified by science, that humans need physical evidence through the senses to acquire logical understanding of the external world. But in order to embody the “spiritual role,” so to speak, we are to open our minds to the very idea of another sense within ourselves.

This sense I describe, is more of a feeling signature more so than it is any sort of physical sensation or cognitive understanding. It is the byproduct of being conscious in the present moment. It is the skill of allowing yourself to unidentify with the mind and to ego itself to the degree that certain energy centers within the body are to, in theory, blossom towards dimensions external to this one (which in truth, are internal to this one).

Practicing techniques to graciously surrender to the flow of the processes described is crucial in one’s physical life, especially at this point in humanity’s progression. We are to practice the sacred art of meditation.

The practice of meditation also, is not confined to the cognitive reprimands we bestow to it in our western, mainstream, cultural opinions. Although extremely popular and normally an extreme benefit, it is most definitely not a necessity of the practice to sit criss-crossed in a relaxed state repeating mantras in the fashion of a monk. This is simply a misunderstanding. Meditation for example, can be expressed by taking a stroll through the forest, or vigorously participating in exercise, or any activity imaginable that may voluntarily cause your being’s consciousness to focus into the present moment. And since the act of meditation is to allow one’s consciousness to be in a state of allowance, the activities should be in harmony with that very philosophy for optimal benefit when doing so.

In an energetic sense, if the majority of the population were to follow this practice in a way that is suited to their own individual expression, the network of humanity’s consciousness would be activated. And because of this linkage, the entire sum of our species on an individual level will find access to this sense as well.

People would no longer be imprisoned by the confines of their logic because they will feel the connection between all vibratory fields. The desire for cognitive understanding would be anguished by our newfound understanding. Our imagination would be unreachable to the judgements of the mind and as a result, we would not only feel true liberation, but manifestations would appear on a monumental level. Coupled with the skill of desire (which is humanity’s greatest asset), the human race would be unmatched by any known entity in the universe by manner of our own resiliency.

And so I ask of whoever is reading, to discover what calls you. More specifically, to what meditative activity that will enable you to express yourself. Now could not be a more crucial time period to do so. For at this moment, there is no greater risk than not taking a risk at all. The urgency I beckon cannot be expressed fully. Follow your heart, allow your attachments to be burnt away by the past in the favor of your heartfelt desires. This, this is your responsibility. Not just on an individual level, but for the human race. Our evolution is dependent upon how in touch we are with our heart space. Now is the time to connect.

The Role of Duality

It is too often we humans underestimate our lives here on Earth. By design, we are forgetful of our true nature. We forget our point of originality and ignore our senses in intuition and feeling. And as a result, we suffer.

Many of the greatest teachers that were once demonstrated to humanity offered our species a new state of consciousness. This consciousness can be described as the “Christ” energy, enlightenment, etc. The energy was to exemplify our potential. It not only transcended positive and negative energies, but embraced them.

In the framework of our concept of linear time, it was in the beginning wherein all things originated. It was a space characterized by oneness. Fear and ignorance were foreign. It was in this space when consciousness had it’s first thought. A desire to know itself. And so in order for consciousness to conceptualize itself, it would need a new energy; an energy that opposes its original consistency of love and union. This new energy was nothing more than the lack of consciousness, the basis of fear and ignorance.

To note furthermore, it is often conceptualized in our minds to separate these opposing energies and categorize them as “good” and “bad.” From an objective point of reference, this is in fact, false. For consciousness, or God, loved the energies of “bad,” because it had allowed it to expand and create more of itself that initially, it could not.

And so “the fall from grace” had occurred (if this were a true statement). Streams of consciousness from the original source, focused themselves through alternate dimensions and unto this one: the third dimension. These source streams of consciousness, otherwise labeled as “souls,” embodied physical form. They had entirely immersed themselves in fear and ignorance to the degree they were forgetful of their true nature. By doing so, we have since created yet another energy: the energy that had created the holy trinity which is described as the “Christ” energy, or the energy of enlightenment. Our collective intention since then has been to embody this energy. For it will be God incarnated.

To embody this energy, we are not to form dark into light, negative into positive, or “bad” into “good.” We are to instead merge these two energies by both discerning and feeling that they are of one of the same. We are not to polarize to either the perpetrator or the victim, but to what underlies them both. It is through releasing trauma and integration, that we may be able to embody our authentic expression. To embody God incarnated.

 

The God Complex

In this modern day and age, when it comes to existential philosophy, two universal models seem to triumph over all understanding elsewhere. As children, we are proposed these two models by the outside world. One being the ceramic model of the universe in that it depicts a being in the sky controlling life like chess which is urged by the Christian and Islamic religions, to name a few. The other, unlike a given faith, is defined by the guidelines of science and physical tools in which to experiment modern theories. But it is that I propose to be neither.

In a physical human body, there are four necessitative responses. One is that of physical sensations, including sight, touch, taste, etc. The other two, include thought patterns and the emotional responses to those thoughts. The final proponent, is the aspect of ourselves that is aware of those given proponents of our being. It is consciousness. Therefore, God, in its true essence, can simply be defined as pure consciousness.

It is a misunderstanding to refer to God as a “being of light,” or of any significant idol or of any given representation of a thing. God is not a being, but instead, an energy; an energy that which can be felt and registered into the body as “love” and that which is characterized by science as consciousness.

And so in the story of creation, God being pure consciousness, sought to expand itself. Because by doing so, it would self-actualize. In other words, in order to know yourself, you are to be separated from the sum of yourself. You cannot understand the concept of “black” without standing in a space of “white.”

So consequently, energy took the form of atoms, planets, star systems, until eventually it had surpassed the evolution of earth and unto us, human beings. This energy, that has lasted billions and billions of years, now resides in our energetic blueprint. It is who we are.

It is time now, in the modern era to not only remember this about our history, but to forge the path of divinity within ourselves. It is time we consciously realize that our humanity is nothing less than our divinity. We are to be conscious of our boundless connection to the world and to each other. We are to be conscious of our connection with  God. As we are in essence, indivisible from it.
