LIVING FROM THE SEAT OF THE SOUL 

Well that’s how you make God first and God only, is to always be attentive at the seat of the soul and to live from here (at the seat of the soul), to look from here (at the seat of the soul), to listen from here (at the seat of the soul), to act from here (at the seat of the soul), to think from here (at the seat of the soul), to respond (at the seat of the soul), to move (at the seat of the soul) for that’s all a movement of the Divine, the reality.

Full Excerpt ~

Truly the greatest thing we have to be grateful for is the meditation itself.  That meditation is the key to it all, for that action of meditation opens the door to God-consciousness.  It opens the door to our soul’s liberation. It opens the door to our true understanding and knowing and fulfillment, for all that is truly within.

But it doesn’t take place until we really open that door and step through it, and that’s what we’re doing here.  I don’t care what you call this—a Path of Sound and Light, a Path of Liberation, a Path of God-consciousness, a Path of Awakening, and Path of Happiness or Joy or Peace—all of that takes place.  All of that takes place; that’s all part of the journey of the soul’s fulfillment is to really experience all of these different aspects of God.  And so we’re going to go through all of it so that our soul is fulfilled in all that God is and all that God has for us.

And the simple action of meditation is the way for us to experience it all.  It really comes down to just that; it’s just the action of meditation itself. 

In truth, that’s all we need to do.  Yes, there are ways to change our attitudes to perceive things differently, to make adjustments in how we believe or think or feel, and those all help.  And that’s part of what comes about as we keep moving towards God, as we keep looking within and up, is that those changes come about—the shifts in our consciousness, the changes in our lives, the more experience we have, the more understanding—that comes about automatically. 

The difference is when we try to make the changes without the meditation, it’s different because it’s the ego trying to change and create.  The ego truly can’t create; it can only reflect. It is only the soul that has been made in the likeness of God that can create. 

So, to create true change can only be done through the movement of Spirit.  We’ve got to go into the Spirit and really move from the Spirit of who we are, rather than the ego, for that is the true creator. 

And so to truly create, then we’ve got to live that truth of who we are, no matter what that creation is, whether it’s inwardly or outwardly, even in the physical world around us. 

When we can really move into that  “creatorship,” then that which we create is going to be more true and real.  Even in this physical world that is temporary and passing, that which we create is going to fulfill the soul in its journey of experience; for the real experience brings about wisdom and understanding, where the reflection of the ego has none of that.  It’s just all an illusion that is ever trying to deceive, to trick, to blind, to stop, to distract us from the truth. Because if we allow ourselves to be distracted from the truth, well then we give the power to that which is the reflection, that which is the world and the ego. 

And so if we’re always looking at the reflection, we’re ever feeding that with our loving creativity, believing that to be real, then our experience is an experience of illusion rather than an experience of Truth.  The Truth really is: we are Loving; we are Divine. If we want to have that be our experience, then we’ve got to let go of the illusion, and let go of the reflection of what we’ve been chasing after.  

And the way we do that is through the meditation.  When we meditate, when we close our eyes and draw our attention inwards and upwards to the seat of the soul, and into the soul itself, is where we can do that. 

In here, we talk about God first and God only.  Well that’s how you make God first and God only, is to always be attentive at the seat of the soul and to live from here (at the seat of the soul), to look from here (at the seat of the soul), to listen from here (at the seat of the soul), to act from here (at the seat of the soul), to think from here (at the seat of the soul), to respond (at the seat of the soul), to move (at the seat of the soul) for that’s all a movement of the Divine, the reality.

JANUARY 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.
