…you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord.
Walk as children of light, 9for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness, and truth.
We are resting on the lap of God, but dream and suffer “this world” into existence.
There is only one creation, one Earth, here and now!
God’s creation is One, good and wonderful; eternal in the Heavens. 2
What our brain reports is “this world”.
As the character in our dreaming we identify as “man”… and the Truth is thereby veiled.
We judge by appearances, we listen to our fleshly brain, we think and feel to be a separate-self in a huge Universe, apart from the intimacy of the creator.
Born of woman, born from below, we try hard to do the right thing; we acquire lots of seeming knowledge in the most sincere attempt to get back into our rightful place.
Paradoxically our own mental activity, our own believe in personhood creates the veil that separates us from God, from Love, from the embrace and experience of our true Nature.
We cannot see and experience that we are already in Paradise, because we judge by appearances;
because we look at God’s perfect creation through the dark glasses of our own pains, believes, hopes, expectations and false identity.
Waking up to what eternally IS — the Truth — comes by Grace, not by the sweat of the brow.
There are no conditions for God’s Love; his Light shines on the just and the unjust!
But if we willfully hold onto what we believe to know, and what our fellow dreamer tell us and figured out, then not even God can help us.
“I AM the Lord your God” is so crystal-clear, but our minds are too busy to surrender to Love.
The Bible cannot be broken; once you know the Truth you see that it was always pointed out in the book.
All those years of your own suffering and seeking… and you couldn’t see it, feel it, you couldn’t relate to it:
I and my Father are one!
The brain can only process movement, contrast and duality; it cannot process stillness; it was conditioned to survive in “this world”.
If your life would depend on your own strength and doership then you would have no chance; you wouldn’t even know how to take another breath!
The Bible is written with words we believe to understand in our current state of ignorance; the words make sense to a certain degree; and somehow we manage to be comfortable with all the things we don’t understand.
Our redemption is not in believing, hoping and waiting for the world to change; our freedom and liberty is in seeing what IS.
We all want to be free, we all want to experience happiness.
Why does it takes so long to discover that our suffering is attitudinal, and not circumstantial?
Love is the greatest, the only, power in God’s creation; there is nothing outside of God’s creation!
Darkness is not a separate “thing”, it is not another deity, it is just the absence of Light; two sides of the same coin.
Therefore do not be partakers with them. 8For you were once darkness, but now you are light in the Lord. Walk as children of light, 9for the fruit of the light consists in all goodness, righteousness, and truth.
The price we have to pay for the Pearl of great price is the seeming pain of dying to our old person.
It is only scary from the perspective of “this world” — the lack of discerning what we assume (to know) and what IS.
God IS Love.
What to do? … asks the (involuntarily) wicked one.
Be! … is the instruction the righteous one follows.
“Be still, and know that I am God; I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth.”
Being still is nothing you can “do”!
It is only empty, boring, and a seeming waste of time from the perspective of “this world”.
You decide for yourself if you want only some little improvements in your surface life, or if you go all the way to understand and embrace the good news, here and now!
Examine yourselves to see whether you are in the faith; test yourselves. Do you not realize that Christ Jesus is in you–unless, of course, you fail the test?
2 Corinthians 13:5
Don’t be intimidated by your old ignorance, by feelings or thoughts.
“This world” rejects the Truth!
It is only a thin layer of seeming despair and horror that separates “this world” from “my kingdom”.
Pray, relax; be in the presence of Love, here and now; abide in the simple sense “I am, I exist”.
Be gentle, observe the itch, the deep rooted habit of running away from your own inner silence and inner-space.
Do not waste your precious body to wait for “this world” to change on the surface!
Know the cause of the phenomena of Life, know your own scriptures; be the living Word in your own Heart.
The kingdom is at hand!
Allow the glimpse of the experience that you are already home.
Not in perfect circumstances, but in Being one with your own Essence — the unchangeable substance of all existence.
Do not rely on your conditioned brain when it tries to explain to you reality! Know the Truth first-hand by being in the presence of Love, here and now.
Peace be still!
Don’t fight the seeming storms in your own mind, but know the Truth.
Feel the presence of Love; abide in your true nature.
Seek the Kingdom of God above all else, and live righteously, and he will give you everything you need.
Don’t “seek” in your brain, but seek in your self; by being relentlessly open!
Don’t defend your old ways, don’t be stuck in mentations, but feel and experience the presence of Love, before your brain interprets reality for you!
Truth-teachings — in my case the Bible — are not fulfilled by believing, hoping and waiting, but by rediscovering our own true nature, which is never separate or apart from Life itself.
The key is Awareness.
Without Being Aware absolutely nothing would exist for you! Your own Being Aware is personified in the Bible as Jesus Christ… “unto us a child is born… Prince of Peace, Wonderful Counselor”.
“When one tugs at a single thing in nature;
he finds it attached to the rest of the world.”
