Not Going, but BEing Home – Your New Identity (As a Saint ;)
Mornings devoted to sacred reading and contemplation – before ever turning the computer on or connecting to the Internet – are precious. They are priceless. If you have the freedom to do this, I highly recommend it. No need to answer the phone, either – let them leave a message – unless it's very important. We get into a trance, you see, due to the haze, the electronic haze generated by our gadgetry. We don't even know this. Some spend all of their time, 24/7, enshrouded in this haze. There's no need to have the cell phone on at night or near the bed. Carve out for yourself an island of peace in which to sleep. Remove all the electronics from the bedroom that you can, at least at night. It may take a short time for your body, your aura, to detoxify from the miasma. It's been keeping you as if drugged. Your energy body has been both more sluggish and more irritable than it would be if you gave it some decent rest. Both the electrical currents and the electronic frequencies used by our gadgets are unfriendly to human biology – so unfriendly that it makes one suspicious if that isn't in their design – intentionally. Maybe not – but then again, anything is possible. ;) So, for me these mornings have become my island in the stream. I now have a cell phone, but it spends all its time when I'm not driving and in need of it with the battery out, rubber-banded to the phone. I don't trust the darn thing to not still be sending a signal, so I've ordered a little Faraday pouch to keep it in. I trust none of
our technology. The most offensive thing about it is the overall effect that it has of cutting us off, to a significant extent, from communion with our own inner nature – Higher Self – even our heart. While we still retain those connections, they're so attenuated that only the determined ones among us, the real devotees of Light and Truth, manage to cut through the haze. This is sad. It should be open and easy for everyone. It is our birthright. We've been had. Well, not to complain, mind you – this is not that. This is just to highlight certain things that I consider to be facts. You develop your own, by your research, and more importantly, your experience. There are a lot of great ideas, wandering around out there. Your Higher Self knows which ones are for you – and, as importantly, which are not. It's funny – your path is very personal, even unique – yet you are not. You are not even a person. It's hilarious, the way things are set up. I love it! There's nothing here to complain about. Now, in this morning communion – the reading and contemplation – seldom does a morning go by without tears. These are most special tears, for they come from the heart. Perhaps you know the kind I mean. It's kinda funny, my friends. I grew up Catholic, and being devotional, studied the lives of the saints. I loved reading about all the wildly different ways there were of coming Home to God. Anyway, not all, but some of the saints had certain gifts, even miracles, that they were known for. One thing fairly common among them was called the Gift of Tears. It was considered a divine gift, to have these tears of the heart flow. My friends, I find that amazing, for this, too, is something I find quite natural. It can be found in any heart. What's funny about it is that I feel we are all called to be saints – each and every one of us. Hey, in this day when we're all in process of the actual physical ascension – such things better be available to us all. Have you looked at yourself that way, before – as a saint? If not, give it a go. Get rid of all the old ideas and beliefs that may pop up, pointing most likely to your supposed unworthiness. BS and bunkum. Throw that stuff out. Darn right you're called to be saints. Heck, you're already that. For most, it's
just hidden, within – needing to be uncovered – not attained. We are those saints, come again, most of us. I'd be surprised if, among those now incarnate, weren't most of the saints of all religions. We've all come to the party, the mass ascensions getting ready to pop. So, let's start looking at the Self in these new ways. Be cautious, of course, of ego. Just be alert. It's no problem at all for the one truly present, truly there in the now. It's this Inner Self, capital “S,” that's divine, you know. It's okay to distinguish between the inner and outer self. I do it using upper and lower case “s.” No big deal. Sure, it's a bit dualistic – well, so what? There's nothing wrong with getting things as straight as we can within the duality, as well as acknowledging that it isn't quite real. We life in both worlds, friends. Don't let someone limit you to only one. This seems to be a complaint registered against the supposed “New Agers.” I'd like to get rid of such titles. There has been so much condemnation of this group that even the name has become derogatory. Does that seem right to you? To brand a whole, mostly very sincere group of seekers that way? I find it disgusting, that we would be finger-pointing like that. So, perhaps you will join me in refusing to criticize or condemn. Nothing good comes of it. If we have a truth to point out, we can do it without tearing others down. That said, there are groups like the New Age ones and others, who want to limit their focus to Light. Well, let's let them do that. No doubt they have something precious to offer there. I expect many of us came through their ranks on the way to wherever we are, now. What I'd like to point out and emphasize, however, is balance. Here in 3D or duality, almost everything comes in pairs: hot and cold, in and out, yes and no, light and dark. Some want to call these pairs opposites. I do not. They are sometimes just reflections of one another. Sometimes one is the absence of the other, such as light and dark. Dark doesn't even really exist – it's just the absence of light. I say this about Love, as well – it has no opposite. When we're talking about qualities that could be seen as the attributes of the divine, there is certainly no opposite even possible. The thing is
either there, or it's not. You manifest it – or you don't. Let's take Love. Some say its opposite is hatred, some say it is fear. I say, look again. See that those are but manifestations of the absence of Love. Let us look again at all such things. Remember, we've been both set against one another, in our programming, and set against any real Truth. Truth has been strictly withheld from us in our education and in our media, our society. We're most often taught its opposite in its stead. That's why, once we turn our focus within, it's wise to go forth with some caution. Above all, don't trust the self. It's not that the self is wrong or evil or any such thing. Rather, it's the lesser self that's been programmed. It's become a mind field of untruth and deceit. This is very disappointing for the being to learn – to come to recognize all the myriad ways in which the society has been corrupted. Some may not yet be ready to adopt this understanding. You may not yet have had your fill of seeing into the lies with which you're quite surrounded – of seeing how they form the matrix of all created by TPTW (The Powers That Were) – which is most everything. Truly, our whole society, in all of its manifestations, is corrupt. Even the churches, the monasteries have taken this route. All truth has been collected and hidden away in places like the Vatican Library – and many private collections. Until we come to the full depth of disappointment and disgust – until we fully face the darkness that is our environment at present – we may not be ready to see in this way I suggest. Why not? Because many of us are still loyal to the ways and the things we've been taught. We still want to believe in science, in our political party, in religion, in the high aims of large charitable organizations – in people at heart. Right? Do you see that in yourself? It's in all of us, to one extent or another. What I'm saying, though, is that at a certain point it finally hits you – at the top, everything is owned and run by TPTW. They've got a hold on it all, mostly through the dark tool of money, but also in other ways. Until we can look the truth straight in the eye – until we can see that the same dark cabal runs both political parties at the top – then we're not ready to see the rest. We still have some steps we're required to take. We've been afraid to take it all in.
Do you see in yourself any of this holding on action? Are there a few things you've reserved for yourself – that you just can't believe have been tainted this way? Now, do consider that I'm not talking about the Mom and Pop arm of anything. At the local level, such as your local bank, you won't find the corruption that's consumed them at the top. It's been so diluted, there, partly by withholding, keeping it secret, what the real overall plans and strategies are. So, there's no sense picketing your local bank, the Mom and Pop one. It's mostly in the big conglomerates that this corruption shows its face. It's hidden everywhere, though. In the money you have in your wallet – the corruption is hidden, there. You're not evil, of course. But do you see how the tools of evil have wormed their way right through and through the society? The society, itself, has become a cancer – the walking dead. It can't go on like it is. It's quite destined to collapse. This collapse, however, will be the collapse of all that's dark. That doesn't include you. Things and institutions built on integrity, run with honor, will not be hit hard like the rest. Unfortunately, through the mechanism of money, which taints everything, all will be in some way impacted. Let's just stop thinking it's so terrible, this collapse of all that's dark. Can we shift our vision a bit, to see it like that? Surely we all know that so much is so terribly corrupted that it doesn't deserve to come into the New Day, the New Dawn, the New Earth. We only want to take the best of things with us – but of course. Well then, let us, with eyes open to a higher reality, begin slowly withdrawing from all that's corrupt. Above all, cease to trust. Only Source, only Higher Self is worthy of your trust. Period. Are you there, yet? It's a wonderful place. The heart, wed to her Lord, i.e., her own Higher Self – that is so beautiful. That is us. Let us be about it. Our sacred morning time is our tryst with the Beloved. Can you see that? Remember, each one of us is the ultimate Beloved, the spouse, if you choose that, of your own divinity – of your God, or Source. You ARE That, in reality – but, until you can see that, the divine union, this marriage of the soul to God or Source will do. We take things in steps. It's logical, yes, but not for that reason. I
use no mind justification, alone, for anything I believe. The mind's support is just the cherry on the sundae, so to speak. Our being, our soul, if you will, is ready for what she is ready for. There is a next step that will simply seem right. It will feel like the perfect fit, at some point. Even if initially it is rejected, Source will dance us into a new view. Source will woo us, in other words, into readiness for whatever it is. So, don't push your soul. Remember, friends, to follow your bliss, your joy. Don't be heavy handed with your soul. Do distinguish, however, between the mind or ego and the soul. What are you identified with? What are the clues, in your outer life, there, that present you with the truth of this? Are you reading them, those clues? If you do so from heart, you will be shown. Guidance is always present with heart vision. It's a matter of tuning in to it. Just trust that it's there. What do you identify with, still? Where do you find your “I?” This is a question so critical to everything – to your whole path, your whole life – that you can ask it at any time and benefit. “Who am I?” Even, “What am I?” has merit to ask. You'll know when. Any ideas you had when you lived thoroughly in mind will be quite shattered on your road Home. They're in the way, without you even knowing it. To you, at that time, they looked like your dearest supports in life – yet, they're anything but. They're what holds you back, the wolf in sheep's clothing. Be alert. The thing to identify with, it seems to me at this point, is Higher Self. Identify with heart, even. That will work. You ARE That, the divine one found there. Take that on as your identity – try it on. Another wonderful way to go is to identify with, to be the observer of your life – to take ten steps back and just watch. Of course, we do this from heart. You may be surprised at just how helpful it can be to begin identifying this way. Yes, it is something that will, inevitably, be shed – for you are neti, neti, not this, not that. Meanwhile, though, these are logivcal and powerful next steps for you – thing that are practical, that you can do. Always remember – let your own heart provide the guidance you ultimately follow – nothing and no one else. ;) What happens, or what happened for me as I began identifying more and more with Higher Self is that I saw things just begin to
fall off, to fall away from me. Things that had once been so precious, that had been truly valued, fell away. As I looked at them, in amazement, I saw that they now held no value at all. I truly don't know where it went, or when, or how. I suspect, however, it was this shifting in what I identified with. Some people are too eager. They want to take the highest step, identify with the highest they can conceive – yet they may not be ready for that. Each step comes with its price. As long as your heart is quite surrendered unto Source, then maybe you are ready for that. You'll know soon enough, though. It's a bit like watching a teen-ager take on more than s/he can chew. You know the recognition will come, at some point. You also know there's no way you can convince them of it, now. Our souls are all like that in some ways. In some ways we're quite mature, but in others, not so much. So, if you've bitten off more than you could chew, I have some ideas that might help to salve the wounds. First of all, realize that we're programmed to do that. Don't blame the self – now or ever – for this or anything. Let's all give up this stupid game of self blame. It's ridiculous. So, let's start there. Be gentle with you. If you find yourself disappointed in yourself in any way, start with loving you. Just as you would love your teen, love yourself. Know that you are worthy, so very worthy. Step in to Higher Self. Start seeing self this way. Let go of your old images of this flawed, incomplete, maybe even incompetent self. This is all quite false, but it must be seen through by you – no one else. It's time for your vision to make the shift. We tend to get really disappointed in the self when we've hitched our wagon to some really high star or another – and we didn't perform as we desired. This is destructive. Your true Self is already and always quite perfect. Begin to adjust and adapt to this image of you. You are That. Yes you are. It won't seem like it, especially to the mind aspect of you – but that's okay. You're stepping back from that particular way of viewing – the mental perspective on life. Be in a letting-go mode. As we shift into heart, more and more, the way of surrender just becomes natural. All sense of sacrifice fades from it. Instead, it becomes quite enjoyable. That will seem
crazy to mind – like so many other heart things – but, again, that's okay. Let your mind think it's nuts. What is that to you? Come on – don't forget who you really are. It's not that – go within. Just keep centering. Let that be your response to mind. Bite off the chunk you can chew. Sure, have the really high aim – the highest possible – but keep your focus right now and right here, where you are. Some people get too future-focused, and that doesn't help. It doesn't get you anywhere, to surrender the now. Anything at all that requires you to surrender your now-here focus is bogus, the way I see it. Just stay present – be alert. The only step that's ever in front of you is the small one. That's all that fits into the now-here. Like they say, the journey of a thousand miles begins with one step. Make that step. No one can take that away from you. It's in your power to do. People are so easily distracted from awareness of and reverence for the small step. We're drawn away into so many things we lose track of now-here. Something to watch for is anything that draws you overmuch into past or into future – either one. We will one day discover that past and future are not real – not in the way we conceive of them, at this point. Mind simply has it all wrong, about time. Nonetheless, don't try to fix, scold, or condemn mind. Simply be alert to anything that is not now-here focused. That is all. Just be aware. Then, when such things arise on your horizon, it's a simple thing to recall, “Oh, this is what I'm watching out for. Back into heart I go.” Just like that. Simple, quiet, lightening fast, at some point. It becomes so very easy, you'll wonder why you didn't always do this. It fits like a glove. Why is that? It's your new focus of identity kicking in. You're less identified with mind, if you can stand back and observe it like that. Do you see? Like Einstein said, we don't succeed in resolving anything by staying on the same level with it. Step back from or up above mind. That is all. Also, please see that this is no condemnation of mind. Mind does what it does. It's best, in my book, to leave mind alone to its own devices. Just let it be. Turn your focus elsewhere. Mind will come along when it's ready. It needs no fixing from you. You see, as you point up false beliefs and such things to mind, mind is
learning on your trek. It does that quite naturally. It's pretty smart. Also, a word to those who will notice that I don't always say the same things. There may be things that either contradict or seem to do so with other things I have said. I will stand, here, with Ralph Waldo Emerson, who said this so eloquently, I'll even go to my favorite essay, Self Reliance, and quote it, here:
“The other terror that scares us from self-trust is our consistency; a reverence for our past act or word, because the eyes of others have no other data for computing our orbit than our past acts, and we are loath to disappoint them. “But why should you keep your head over your shoulder? Why drag about this corpse of your memory, lest you contradict somewhat you have stated in this or that public place? Suppose you should contradict yourself; what then? It seems to be a rule of wisdom never to rely on your memory alone, scarcely even in acts of pure memory, but to bring the past for judgment into the thousand-eyed present, and live ever in a new day. In your metaphysics you have denied personality to the Deity: yet when the devout motions of the soul come, yield to them heart and life, though they should clothe God with shape and color. Leave your theory, as Joseph his coat in the hand of the harlot, and flee. “A foolish consistency is the hobgoblin of little minds, adored by little statesmen and philosophers and divines. With consistency a great soul has simply nothing to do. He may as well concern himself with his shadow on the wall. Speak what you think now in hard words, and tomorrow speak what to-morrow thinks in hard words again, though it contradict every thing you said to-day. — 'Ah, so you shall be sure to be misunderstood.' — Is it so bad, then, to be misunderstood? Pythagoras was misunderstood, and Socrates, and Jesus, and Luther, and Copernicus, and Galileo, and Newton, and every pure and wise spirit that ever took flesh. To be great is to be misunderstood.”
Here is a link to my collection on Scribd.com called Favorites and Fun . There is much to puzzle and delight both you and your mind, there. Be loyal to Truth, and do it in the now-here moment. I hold that as a sacred maxim. In being true to each moment, we will often find that, at some point, our moments may clash. The truth that we saw in them may seem to be opposite or different. Don't let that stop you. Never be loyal to the past, in other words. Can you see that's what this is saying? Be loyal only to now, and to your highest vision here.
I guess I've gone on long enough, here. Do you see or sense these journals shifting and changing? I do. Look for the same sort of shifting and changing, there in your life. Get rid of all barriers to flexibility that are currently built in, or seem to be. They are not. It's all a matter of making choices – the best one for each now. Give your self full flexibility to see things one way, now, but know that tomorrow may bring a different, perhaps a higher way of seeing the same thing. Don't let that stop you. People may throw up in your face your previous words or understanding that you'd shared with them. Don't be intimidated. Just stick with now. All you require is contained right here. Source is here – so is Higher Self. Divine guidance is always present. Our job is placing the self in proximity to that, so that it can be perceived – the still, small voice. The divine is faithful to you – the real you. The false you, the mind-made image of you in which you've found self thus far – this one may get some rough treatment along the way. Expect it. This is no big deal. It will hurt in the moment, sure, but note this: it will hurt to the precise extent in which you've vested belief in it. No more, no less. It's your beliefs that you're working with, now, to a very large extent. They can seem to hurt, when they're attacked, simply because you've placed a bit of yourself there – via your belief you've vested a portion of self in that. Now, while the hurting part isn't fun, it also ins't really serious. That's not you. This can be seen IF you have sufficient distance from things. By taking up your place within heart, this automatically provides you just the right distance from simply everything. It's the one safe place you can always go. As we pull our beliefs out of all the externals in which we've vested them – including the false self-image – we become more and more free. We feel the sinds of Spirit, itself, begin to blow around us and even through us at some point. We become that free that we don't even offer any resistance to the flight of the wind. We're as free as the air. Be in heart for that. When you don't know what to do, just center down. Be still. Be quiet. All is well. You are Home, already – you just don't see this, yet. But, you will.
It is there, always there to be seen. Keep casting away false beliefs. Your vision will become clearer and clearer. It will sharpen to such an extent – well, you'll be amazed, that's all – again and again. Nothing, literally nothing is what it appears to be. Knowing that brings a great deal of freedom.
