From Jesuit conspiracy to consider the root of all evil.

Beneath all specific examples is the lie and the father of the lie. The wolf in sheep's clothing is the form that is adopted or used to mask a hidden loveless agenda. Be that even the salvation of the person because the sense of self apart from God and brother or sister in Christ (Creation) is born of the wish to engage in experience of such 'specialness' apart from the Whole. Fragmentation, war and a mind in deceit results from self-illusion. That then claims it has free will from God rather than putting the false aside in willingness to discern Free Will. Free Will cannot be put in the 'old wine bottle' of the paradigm of a conflict of persons - which reflects the conflictedness within.
The moneylenders in the Template are symbolic of the interjection of guilt and fear driven agenda within our foundations - within our core definitions and beliefs by which we have and share our unique gift of Life.
The purpose of conflict is to divert, condition and trap or anchor attention, within the Idea of a power God is not. It makes itself seem to be true by asserting God in image, symbol and Concept - and experiences itself dissonant as a result of seeking to maintain and conform its experience to its accepted or chosen Identity - and identity imprinted in guilt and terror - as the power of belief is the power of the word, and to believe a power God is not is contra Diction or the power to deprive and hurt oneself.

In seeking to untangle the threads of deceit in the history of the Earth, one can always go back further to see the same pattern. Will uncovering the true nature of worldly power open the truth that heals and shows us we are free? Not if it pulls us into the baited conflict of deceit. However, the world can be used to identify the flaw in our self that is overlooked while righteously blaming and hating others. Not a flaw that damns us - but a flaw to seek correction of.

Christ could not awaken humanity to the truth he was witnessing to, demonstrating and teaching, in large part because the mind was not ready to receive more than its own measure. Guilt and fear were and are a very deeply imprinted conditioning that necessarily interprets through a glass darkly - seeking answer for the mind in the world rather than recognising one truly lives in God and not the fragmented, distorted projections of a mind in its own spin.

"Resist ye not evil" is very dear to my heart. But so is the discernment of truth and the willingness to turn away from falsehood and put it away or behind me BY wholly embracing the true.

Humanity has become negatively identified in what it is trying to get rid of, or in what it is afraid of. But fear is a self-fulfilling prophecy because what we feed with attention, we strengthen, invite and attract. to be mindful as to the qualities and nature of our thoughts is to be vigilant against temptation. The a tempt to be apart as if above Life in judgement is the secret deceit that humanity tacitly conspires to protect from exposure using religion or science or any form of anything that it may hide it to escape notice.

That we see this patterning in our world is our readiness to discern it in our own mind - and know that it does not speak for us nor represent the true of us. Not wish or hope it is not true of us but knowing. It is given you to recognize truth because Free Will created you like unto your Father and has never left you - regardless the intensity of assertion of pain, shame or rage that denial has generated.

I do not claim to be right against a wrong - I simply bear witness in willingness of relationship. No one is to come between what God creates or awakens to knowing Creation. And so my 'church' is relationship itself rather than any outer form. This must be received within and extend forth. All outer forms become corrupted and diluted by misuse or indeed abuse.

Guilt is the antiChrist that would usurp God and Self and corrupt and subvert all to a 'control' in which true will has NO place. Will-less-ness is a state of no Conscious Presence - a kind of death in which no will can be called upon because it has been replaced by the lifeless definitions by which it is denied. Few realize they are even being robbed until they wake to see they had put their trust in idols that have no power to love or protect them.

To say that God loves us as we are is to say that when we insist on being who we are not, we withhold the gift of our true presence and experience the reflection of that in a broken and distrustful world. Any attempt of will to add or take away from ourself is adding confusion to confusion. However, we are free to desire a clearer appreciation or perspective of who we are and what is truly going on in this event or place or relationship. But the wilful determination to overcome or solve something on our own - in our terms, is not a true will but an imprisoned will - which is not a Fact in God but a definitional thought disorder!


I looked up Arminian... (Re Protestant ideas of Christianity) the thing that comes up for me is noticing the intent to fix truth in form and sanctify and idolize the form. Even that has its place - for some order must be held in which to gain a greater perspective. However Jesus fulfils and transcends the Law of Moses - which were made for Man - in the divine sense of Humanity. Not for some men to subvert into a perpetual system of dominance over others through deceit.
We have the same command and control mentality in using 'truth' as a weapon or war in Science - and that science either but the usurping of the desire to uncover truth (albeit ignoring the Consciousness of the movement of being in which all experience arises).
The Holy Spirit is the capacity - our innate capacity - of discernment. One could say Jesus is the Personification of the Holy Spirit and left it with us because his life illuminated and exemplified it as our own true Nature.
There are so many way that one accommodates a true movement of willingness to meet the form of the need - but one does not elevate the accommodation to the status of Truth just because it was truly helpful in its moment.
God is the Only Power - but if that cannot be meaningfully useful, then such of God's remembrance as can be accepted has to find a way to enter where there is apparently no room... and that infant be nurtured and indeed kept hidden until its time to come forth.


Desire, Dreams and Happinness - can we ever arrive?

Desire, Dreams and Happinness - can we ever arrive?
An IAI debate

While seemingly open to a wider range of ideas, the IAI approach still operates from presumptions that then frame the question.
The presumption of lack, be it inadequacy, separation or incompletion, becomes the basis of a false sense of self that is no more true for being mutually reinforced. Happiness actually comes first and extends and expresses itself as desire that then unfolds as an experience or reflection of completion. One is always arising anew from wholeness. The identification within a belief in self lack is being chosen and enacted and experienced as part of a greater desire whose meaning is an unfolding human being - which is infinitely more than our self concepts. One can say that exploring what is NOT true of you and does NOT fulfil your innate desire for love and life and happiness is part of the journey you have chosen whereby to more clearly recognize and re-member who you truly are. There is no sense of lack in your true presence - unless of course you choose to be less than the wholeness of what is You right here and now. But then you are experiencing your wholeness in a fragmented and dissociative way and not recognizing your Self at all!
Love is the true joy and freedom of being yourself. In any situation or relationship where you feel and allow the permission to be all that you are in that moment - you will feel loved and loving. Fantasy relationships substitute for actually extending that acceptance and freedom to another - which is the only way to have it yourself. The substitution of fantasy associations for living presence is self-deprivation. Struggling to defend a fantasy that reflects only your own sense of lack is chasing an idol of power or completion from the conviction you do not already have it and so give your power away to external props that do not know or care for who you truly are.
In a sense EVERYTHING is Imagination - but some thoughts, definitions and beliefs are more in accord and alignment with the core signature vibration that you absolutely recognize as YOU, so to align with and follow your joy is to connect with your joy to the best of your ability in every moment when you are presented with a choice. This is simple embodying and expressing a genuinely felt or true sense of worth. Why would you NOT align with your joy? What are you believing about yourself that invalidates you? Is it true? Does it serve you? Do you want it? Act from your current knowing while staying in the willingness to know more. or you can just talk and think about everything and act as if nothing you say actually means you have allow the transforming of who you thought you were

Why is there something rather than nothing?

Why is there something rather than nothing?
This the title of an IAI debate 

In a sense the question is meaningless because it is saying why - or to what purpose or for what reason, Existence? - without taking account that a purpose is already in motion within which the capacity to ask such a question is itself an answer - but not in the terms of the framing of the question but to the purpose operating beneath or behind the presumptions and self-definitions of the questioner.
However, there are fruits or consequence to every thought accepted and given focus, and one can readily see that our current experience is selected from infinite possibilities and such choices are either spontaneous or seemingly conditioned. "Go forth and multiply" can be said of what you think, what you attract and invest in and what fruits you bring forth. It is the extension of Life in purpose of 'Know Thyself', yet in our human consciousness we largely tend to identify or try to identify with what we are NOT. In trying to be what we are not we forget the wholeness of unified expression that we are. Fearful and guilt-ridden self definition operate such forgetting - within which truth is denied by assertions of self-judgement believed and reacted to as true. Within this confusion of identity the feared truth drives a search for truths that protect or empower the limiting of fear. These operate to redefine and limit the mind so as to seem to be an independent authoritative will or power in one's own right - but beset by threat, adversity and opposition.
Anyway - that preamble was not in my comment on the page but the following is:

THAT anything exists.THAT anything Is - is the most primary Fact that remains TRUE regardless of what it is defined or imagined or believed to be.
That Awareness OF THAT anything Is - is integral to all and every experience of all or any definition, imagination or belief. And the nature of awareness itself is One in All and All are in the One.
Whatever definition, imagination or belief is extended or accepted and acted out from as true of you will be the measure of what you get back. This is always true, but can seem not to be true within the belief that you can get or become more as a result of making someone else less. It is this idea of segregative division that estranges humanity in general from the Communion implicit in the first two truths above.
To know your own unified purpose is joy - which restores the Communion within the creative expression of the gift of Existence.
Everything changes - EXCEPT the first three truths which are simply the nature and function of Mind - within which is all reflected idea known; experienced, shared and forever unfolding anew.
This is another way of saying:
'there is no God but God'.
God is All in All.
As you sow, so shall you reap,
And God Moved upon the 'Waters'
But the idea 'God' has come to mean separate from your any moment - and especially you, or coercive upon 'His' Creation rather that One with, and removed from and irrelevant to Creation (The extension and sharing of the Gift of Existence), which is to such thinking a material objective INDEPENDENT existence. BUT never has a moment of such ever been discovered or known in any way whatsoever - because it can only be known within a consciousness of such structural definitional beliefs as to be experienced in such terms.
The extending of the definitional belief of an INDEPENDENT existence - is reflected in a world of seemingly INDEPENDENT things. Seeking truth or completion or wholeness in a world of ever changing things is looking in the only place where it is not Obvious.
I write to extend what resonates true of me - and yet recognize truth is beyond all definition - and yet a less and less filtered and distortive lens affords a clearer recognition. The mind-layer we tend call consciousness is a device within a larger Consciousness. It does not control or contain the whole but it can serve as a channel through which Consciousness knows itself in the extension and reflection of truly shared experience.

I acknowledge Bashar in this communication - whose information is often profoundly simple yet practical to a readiness to receive it - regardless the packaging it comes in.


Consciousness Responsibility

Most of my more public writing has moved to the 'willingness to listen' blog, where it reflects on news articles and human behaviours in the light of Consciousness.

Definitions 'program' what we often take to be our mind. Operating out-from them and within the 'reality' they result, is the nature of our human experience.
But mind is not limited by its 'limitations' for it is by nature edgeless and timeless apart from the act of focussing and identification within idea.

So we may become aware of our 'template' definitions - whether by virtue of self-enquiry and creative joyful expression, or whether by the experience of intolerable discord arising from a conflicted sense of self that can no longer remain disguised by projection and denial.

Current 'news' articles provide the reflections of a conflict that comes ever closer home - for the resonances and relevances to our own foundational living cannot be ignored - at least not without ever deeper sacrifice of joy to fear's tyranny.

Awakening to the layers of mind that operate as our conception and perception experience, is part of the integrative realignment within Consciousness. I often refer to this as Consciousness responsibility. The word ‘conscious’ has been devalued - for who in their so called waking life doesn't  consider themselves conscious?

Consciousness is that quality by which we have or know or be conscious of anything whatsoever. Defining consciousness in terms of specific functions limits our appreciation of Life to the idea such functions represent or embody. But Consciousness serves the innate law of “Know Thyself” - for as you sow, so shall you reap. This is not really a time concept, for the reward of ‘self/experience’ is immediate. True giving is its own reward But the idea of getting at the expense of another is the idea of fragmentation and attack of one’s own Indivisibility.
“What you give out is what you get back”. Ingenuity can contrive illusion whereby one seems to get something different and thereby give differently than consciousness actually is.
That is another way of saying we can accept a definition or image of self that is false, limiting and conflicts with the true.
By the word that proceedeth from our own mouth (mind) are we corrupted.
Such are definitions or self-beliefs that are not true of us - and which actively cost the appreciation and sharing of what is true of us, from our split off mind that fears truth will damn it or annihilate it. But it is the split which is undone or healed and a wholeness of aligned being that then replaces a war within oneself.
To know thy purpose is to be like God. Hidden or secret agenda is unlike love. Light is also a term for awareness and is the First awareness of which all else is. This Light is not merely energy, but feeling or knowing, and is thus our true Soul Nature in Spiritual Expression. That darkness of forgetting operates our mind is not our sin, but our call to awaken. Sin is the choice to prefer illusion of private or secret agenda to a true and open relationship. But such choice is ITSELF a fruit of error and not a true result - for it is only as true as you give your truth to it - now and now and now.

Consciousness responsibility recognizes it does not know, having become confused within its own thinking. Therefore it pauses or yields its own thinking to let That which knows - illuminate the true. For the true requires no assertion or defence or justifiction to be itself, but is un-hidden or obvious to a mind at rest - and registers with us as the rising awareness of the movement of being that both moves us and is us. From this we can take this step wholly. Joined with this we have supportive guidance built into our awareness of the situation.

When we accept the thinking that we of ourselves know - we fall under the spell of a confusion of Consciousness within the egocentricity of our personality structure - until we notice that has been operating. Noticing is always the breakthrough of presence or awareness. Welcoming and valuing awareness appreciates or grows it in our lives. Using it to feed a guilt-script densifies and locks in the spell of an isolated loveless existence. But is IS a choice. reclaiming it as a choice allows a different choice. A choiceless choice extends through the acceptance of our freedom to be - for joy is not a choose-between so much as a resonance of relevance to the felt quality of light within.



Beyond Reality - The Limits of Knowing
Also linked to on iai.tv as the arrogance of knowing?

I felt a desire to essay something on 'reality'. Here it is:

At the root of any apparent conflict is a definition out of true.
If the term reality is accorded to experience - then any and all experience on any kind of any 'level' is a facet of all that reality can be experienced as.

But in order to HAVE an experience, there has to be a definition of oneself in relation to 'something'.

The native experience of anything conceivable or imaginable within awareness, is not in any moment, way, shape or form, different or separate FROM the awareness OF.

Un-separate or unified experience is therefore pure or open or innocent experience prior to any action of self-other differentiation, desire or identification that may arise as mental overlay or lens of a personal sense of meanings upon the pure creation that is the rested nature of Mind-Reflection.

However, crystalizing within the expereince of Otherness or separation - gives rise to the sense of a world outside what is now being defined and accepted and therefore experienced as over and against oneself.

For every action is equal and opposite reaction in Consciousness, but the assertion of attempt to coerce or control what is now defined as 'other' self or otherness of world, reflects back - as every Idea in consciousness reflects back.

The mind in reaction conditions itself by its experience as a mapping and meaning structure or model of reality that substitutes for the direct and spontaneous knowing of unified experience, apparently usurping functions in consciousness to a personal achievement, of discovery, and manipulation or control.

The losing of conscious awarenes of integral being or embrace within unified awareness is the shadow cost of the seeming capacity of independent authorative will, that believes it operates privately upon life as if from a point outside it. And becomes the basis for the fear of losing its private sense of life or self and the guilt of living at the cost of a greater wholeness of shared communication and reflection.

Fear and guilt effectively lock the mind into concrete set patterns of defence that operates in such a way as to displace and dissociate the now split and intolerably conflicted consciousness of identity at war within itself.

The contraction of fear and the denial of awareness and communication of guilt render a frozen consciousness in which eveything is predicated upon the denial of consciousness excepting the trickle of a personal sense of control amidst the crystalisation of limitation in reaction, which is fear directed to look away from the conflict within by projecting its conflict upon the outer of the body, others, the world, and onto Life Itself or God as a sense of a rejecting, disconnecting, abandoning or and unsupporting absence. Which in turn 'justifies' angry and assertive or self-righteous defiance as well as attempts to validate or atone or regain a sense of meaning that such identity/experience of Life no longer shares.

The assertion of a separative idea or intent inherently shuts off communication and support and limits or depletes even as it seems to rise to become a power unto itself. The disntegration of a falsely identified self can only give way to the true, but while framed in the paradign of self-assertive power, will not be recognized, or accepted, but seem to be the proof of power over life in death.

Reintegration of seemingly split mind or self to Consciousness Itself is a matter of willingness to receive as a result of not identifying in reaction of past conditioning.
What may seem to be loss of self to a serving of the whole is in fact a willingess to receive the will of the whole as it resonates and is relevant to the reintegrating and innately joyful or insired purpose that is within the communioned sense of shared existence.

All abilities developed within the mind within its adaption to a time-space continuity of unfolding now serve a different foundation than that of a personal survival amidst fear and guilt defined conditioning. Giving forth a whole or inspiring quality of being within the forms of relations in the world draws forth a different response. Despite all appearances to the contrary, the consciousness itself is transformed via the re-exposure of denied fear and guilt that in willingness, are released and replaced with more fluid and open definitional structure of belief until the flow of creative spontanaity is balanced as a flow of relational being within the experience of consciousness within Consciousness. Some differentiation is part of remaining in the physical focus, but the expansion of that focus as fear is released and joy embrace reveals ever more of a true reflection of the reality of who it is you as this unique expression, have in effect chosen or accepted to be.

The reality of all that is, is infinite in all and every sense and not just in material/energetic dimension. Mind is without limit of ANY kind and so what can be known is ONLY of That and yet as a unique relation of the part and parts in the whole and the whole in the part/s.

Arriving at the understanding that we cannot understand reality or totality opens the way to understanding what we need to understand, when we need to understand it relative to the movement of being as it resonates and is relevant to the themes that effect a facet of specific focus, within an All At Once or timeless and Infinitely expanding totality, for although there is nothing OUTSIDE existence into which to expand, the fundamental nature of Creation is open or free BECAUSE there is no limiting factor of otherness and is therefore free to create along any line of thought by extending through Idea within itself.

Everything is Consciousness. Belief can align to share or extend it or imagine itself differentiated. The only 'difference' to true is false, to awareness is forgetting, to life is death. A false binary operates the foundation of what we define as a mind-matter split. However the true-awareness-life exists in and of itself, but the false-forgetting-death depends on choosing NOT to know by identifying in the belief one knows in place of actual yielding to the condition of knowing.

Withholding life is not survival, apart from others, but it can be a framework of a particular kind of experience in which to clearly know what you are NOT. This then is a portal to Remembering the reality of what you ARE - which is beyond all definition as is the reality of everything and everyone. Yet true alignment or relation to the Infinite identifies you perfectly as integrally one with and part of all that is.

Determining reality operates the either/or mentality of self segregating assertion, One may determine what one feels and believes to be and thus embrace that experience of reality by so doing, and share that into Consciousness by living it - but one does not establish reality for anyone else excepting within one's own virtual personae of them. Mutual agreements seem to determine reality and find the evidences that serve as validation. But below the believed experience of self certainties is an Infinitely more alive nature and condition that forever shifts and changes the very consciousness with which one sets up such structures.

This is Good News - although that which attempts to become comfortable within its own determinations will not see it so. Life is ever anew and ever renewing and this is also our experience of every moment of our existence insofar as we do not take Life for granted or become too busy managing fragmented complexity to notice and feel the wondrous.
