How to Understand God (HUG)

The monthly focus is a written excerpt taken from one of Jim and Brian’s talks, with a link to listen to the entire talk. In holding to a one-pointed focus on Spirit, each month we post a new written excerpt by either Jim or Brian. The worldwide monthly focus on Spirit helps us collectively deepen our understanding of God.

November 2020 — ACTION OF THE RADIANT FORM

By JIM GORDON

Monthly Focus ~ 

“Wake up, wake up, and don’t go back to sleep,” Rumi says. ~ Jim Gordon

 

Full Excerpt ~ Jim Gordon  (On audio recording Jim’s talk begins after the end of Brian’s talk)

“Wake up, wake up, and don’t go back to sleep,” Rumi says, and that’s the goal of our meditation – is to wake up, to bring the soul awake from a deep, deep sleep that it has been lost in for so long. It has been living the dream, but not living the Truth. It has been living in the reflection, but not living in the Truth, and it is time now for the soul to wake up. Wake up and know that it is a child of God, that it is pure Living Loving Essence, and that its true Home is in God and not in this world, and to get free of this even while you’re in the body. To get free of it so that you don’t live in bondage anymore.

That’s the name of the game here. We have been in bondage and the Lord of this realm has kept us in bondage, and he set a lot of traps out there for us. And we’ve just about taken every one of them and got ourselves stuck in them. Some of them are hooks. Some of them are snares. Some of them are belief systems. Whatever it is, I would dare say, most of us, if not all of us, have gotten caught in several, many, all of them. But now it’s time to free ourselves. Now it’s time to liberate our soul from all the entrapments of this creation.

So pay attention. Are you staying awake in your life? Are you staying awake in your meditation? Are you staying awake even in your dream state? That means staying present in the Loving and allow the Loving to live in you, and through you, and you to live into it and through it back into God, and letting go of all those things that are not in the Loving. And believe me, all these things that are of the realm of illusion are not in the Loving. They are a reflection of the Loving, but they are not the Loving. Even the Lord of this realm, of all these realms of the physical creation, are not Loving. They are a reflection of the Loving.

So we want to hold our attention on the place where Loving resides in this creation, which is at the seat of the soul, where our soul dwells, where that Living Loving Essence dwells. And begin to live the Loving first and only – God first and God only, Loving first and Loving only, Soul first and Soul only. That is the name of this game. If we can begin to approach life in that way, we will truly know change. And through that change, we will know liberation, soul liberation, even while we’re in the body. We will know our soul is liberated and that we are not caught up in this physical creation anymore.

Are you staying awake even in your dream state? That means staying present in the Loving, and allow the Loving to live in you, and through you, and you to live into it, and through it back into God
  • Then ask yourself: Am I letting go of all those things that are not in the Loving?
