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.

Monthly Focus ~ 

UNCONDITIONAL LOVING 

…start moving into unconditional Loving and accepting all things, positive or negative, good or evil.  Anytime we place judgment or fear, make anything right or something else wrong, we just have now caught ourselves up in that polarity, in the deception, in the illusion of it all.

Start making the choices to let go of all those things that you’ve chosen in the past, starting right now.  Start making new choices so that you can really start to experience more of that unconditional Loving that is God.  God and unconditional Loving is one and the same.

Full Excerpt ~

God is unconditional Loving.  Unconditional: that means there’s nothing wrong and nothing right.  Unconditional Loving accepts everything. Well, why wouldn’t it? Because everything came out of that Loving, so why would it not accept it all?  Well, if we want to move into that, that’s a perspective that we have to start moving towards. We in ourselves have to make that choice and start moving into unconditional Loving and accepting all things, positive or negative, good or evil. Anytime we place judgment or fear, make anything right or something else wrong, we just have now caught ourselves up in that polarity, in the deception, in the illusion of it all.

So start making the choices to let go of all those things that you’ve chosen in the past, starting right now.  Start making new choices so that you can really start to experience more of that unconditional Loving that is God.  God and unconditional Loving is one and the same. 

And so that Pathway or journey into that is one through our own experience of meditating upon that Divine Essence.  What is meditating upon that Essence, but as simple as focusing our attention into it? Why do we have a Sacred Name?  Why do we give you the “Hu,” the “Ani Hu?” Why do we have this Name, this unspoken Name of Initiation? Because we need something to focus upon in order to move into that consciousness of unconditional Loving.

The mind does not know that.  The emotions don’t understand it.  The imagination can never comprehend it, and the body just simply is not of it.  So on all these other levels of the human or animal nature, there’s no comprehension or understanding of that Divine nature of Loving.  So we’ve got to have something to focus upon in order to now move our conscious awareness out of these lower realms of the world and into the spiritual realms, into the Soul consciousness and unconditional Loving.

And so that Sacred Name is a place we can turn our attention to and focus upon, and that as we do is the way by which we begin to now direct and draw our attention inwards and upwards into the truth of that.  Because it’s an Essence; it’s a Spirit; it’s more subtle than air. You can wave your hand and you can feel the air. You can’t feel the Spirit. It’s not of this world; there’s no physical sensation to Spirit.  It can only be perceived through the soul itself. Because it is only the soul that is of Spirit, so it is only the soul that can perceive the Spirit. So we have to move ourselves into the soul of who we are in order to perceive and experience that and to see it, to hear it, to know it, we’ve got to move into our soul consciousness to do that.

And so this action of meditation and the Sacred Names is for that reason because by holding that focus is how we move into that soul consciousness to begin to experience and perceive the Spirit.
