Fear as a Sign of Potential Expansion

Fear is a reflection of the space in “experience space” that Beingness is expanding into. It reflects a “distance” that has not yet been experientially integrated. Fear is a sign that “That Which Is” is engaged in something (a form or perception) that challenges it and is giving it room- within itself- to expand into.

In part, our physical reality is what happens when unharmable consciousness decides to create a challenge for the purposes of actual experiential growth. Fear is not something that was created, it is simply what happens when existing consciousness engages a new constraint-set that it is not yet optimally developed to handle, and buys into perspectives that are not in alignment with one’s true nature. Fear is only possible when the spirit is engaged in challenge, which means it is working with a yet un-integrated experience. That is, fear is only possible when the spirit is engaging sense data or form that it does not yet recognize for what it truly is, or, when spirit is buying into a belief that is not in alignment with the truth. Fear is a growing pain that happens when “That Which Already Is” engages in a real process of perspective integration to expand and become even more! In that sense, fear ultimately serves love’s purpose of joy and expansion.

Ultimately there is nothing at all to fear! Fear is completely subservient to the greater and perfectly enduring truth of love. When the “game” of growth and expansion is won or departed, there can be no fear. Fear is an illusion- an artifact of “perceived distance” from true love and unity, where no distance can actually occur. Fear is not native to the soul. For our native being is one of total power, freedom, and love- and in the brightness of that Light, every shadow of fear is completely dissolved.

Your Inherent Beauty

The flower does not try to be beautiful. You do not have to, either. The sunset does not strive to be red. Neither do you have to strive to shine with your own light. That light may seem to be obscured for a while as you take your walk in the physical, but it isn’t truly. You shine because you are.

Being does not require effort. Only striving to be what you are not requires effort. You do not have to squeeze yourself to produce love; it is what you are, and flows from you as you Be.

You are ravishingly beautiful! You are an awe-inspiring expression of the divine fire that gives rise to All Things! The wondrousness of your being cannot be lost. The diamond can be no less precious when it is covered in mud.

Know this, let go of all that you are not, and shine!

Your Thoughts Are Powerful

Every thought has an effect, both in our local reality system and in others. You may not see the effect of your thoughts with your physical eyes, but in fact, every thought echoes throughout all space. Reality is affected by each and every intent that you hold! For instance, what you are intending and thinking right now is “happening” throughout all the Earth, and is affecting vibrations in other parts of the world.

How can this be? Consciousness is the fundamental fabric of reality. Since all consciousness is connected to all other consciousness, when consciousness “moves,” all of reality is affected.

However, because we are largely not aware of this, we are “messy” with our thoughts. Because of the beliefs that we have collectively enshrined and perpetuated, we often don’t know our own importance, or our own power.

It is time to remember! What is occurring within you is important! Your thoughts, beliefs, expectations, and intentions are important. Your personal experience is important. You are important!

The thoughts that arrive into your awareness start with your intent. You receive sensory data and decide how to process it. After doing this for a lifetime, your beliefs and interpretations can be so firmly set that they seem like properties of reality itself. The beliefs and interpretations that you have bought into feed the nature of the thoughts that arrive.

Your primary power is intent, your point of power is the now. Using your intent in the current moment, you always have the ability to re-frame your experience. This changes the world. Using your intent in the current moment, you always have the power to alter the momentum of your thoughts. You are not powerless to them; rather, they are expressions of your power. They arrive to serve you, as you have requested. This, too, changes the world.

Love Knows No Boundaries

Often when we think about loving others, we think about those close to us. We prioritize our family, our organizations, or our nation- but often at the expense of others. We tend to think of love as “protecting one’s own.”

True love knows no boundaries! Love surpasses all labels, shatters all divisions, exceeds all limits. Love transcends all human distinction. Love accepts all.

We are to love all people! We are to love all beings, all expressions of life. We are to love regardless of identity, creed, or race. There is no identity label or condition that can preclude someone from deserving our love. If we believe otherwise, even if we do so in the name of some belief we think is moral, we are listening to our ego rather than the spirit.

When we return to the Light after our walk in the physical, we will be deeply loved no matter what identity we adopted, no matter our preferences or affiliations. Even through our many imperfections, we will be profoundly and overwhelmingly loved! In fact, we are profoundly and overwhelmingly loved right now!

Everyone you meet is ultimately your brother or sister. They, too, seek the love from which we have all come. They, too, yearn for the love that knows no boundaries. And you have the profound opportunity to be the hand of compassion or kindness that meets them wherever they are! As you do so, even in small ways, you help the transcendent love of the spirit to shine forth and gradually transform our world.

Love Knows No Boundaries

Natural Joy

The spirit is naturally joyous! Thus the pursuit of happiness is not just about “pushing” towards brightness and joy, but rather is about fully allowing what is in the present moment. Through acceptance of what is, we naturally work past the many ego constructs that cause us to become stuck in unhappiness.

Ultimately, the experience of contrast allows that natural joy to deepen in measure with the degree of experience that is fully met and integrated.

However, whilst in our local experience of contrast, consciousness tends to naturally “lose itself” in the form (thoughts, objects, ideas), and believe it is the form. This identification with something other than the whole brings unhappiness.

But returning to the natural joy is not an act of rejecting the form. Rather, we naturally release our association with the separate when we completely allow and accept it.  Through surrender to form, we naturally “untie” ourselves from it and our intrinsically joyful nature effortlessly rises back to the surface.

You Are Not Fundamentally Human

On a fundamental level, you are not actually a human. You are having the experience of being human, which typically includes only remembering ever being human. In fact, you are you. You are the you that feels like “you” to you. That “you” transcends the experience of your local human character.

You also transcend the local human character’s identity. You are not your job, you are not your responsibilities, you are not your nationality, you are not even your name.

What you really are is so amazing that it is completely beyond description! Yet we might simply say: you are immortal consciousness engaged in a well-defined and highly specialized reality experience, an important part of which includes forgetting all the rest of what you really are. You are participating in a very meaningful journey, a “rubber meets the road” attempt to actualize and expand your true loving nature within a rigorous context.

While you may not have conscious recollection of your greater self, it is always there within you. If you wish to take a step back toward it, let go of all the thoughts of your mind, and listen deeply with your intuition. Listen with your being! The very life within you itself has more to tell you about what you really are than your intellectual human mind and its collection of local “facts.”

Untying the Preciousness of Self from Form

Each of us intuitively sense the preciousness of our own being. The sense of preciousness we often assign to- or seem to find within- the forms of our lives actually transcends that form. But we often make the mistake of thinking that preciousness is a characteristic of form itself. We sense the preciousness of our being, and then because all we consciously remember is our human identity, we tie that sense of preciousness to aspects of our identity. For example we may feel innate preciousness when we consider our sense of religious or national identity, behold the beauty of the human body, or as we take pride in learned behavior or personal human traits that we feel make us “who we are.”

There is nothing wrong with sensing the preciousness of the spirit within the many wondrous forms of our lives! In fact, we come here in part to do just that. But as beings who have also become somewhat “lost” in the forms of the physical universe, it can also be helpful to recognize: the preciousness that we are exists fully unto itself. We do not need the form to be, because we are ultimately not beings of form. We created form- it did not create us. We are life– which engages and entertains form, and expands itself through the experience of form. Life does not need a religious identity, a national identity, a body, or a human characteristic to exist. Rather, those things need life to exist.

The preciousness that you sense in your life is you; the preciousness that you sense in your life is your wonderful fellow spirits; the profound preciousness that you sense within everything in your life is God, by whatever name.

As you recognize this, you naturally begin to untie yourself from the form which seems to capture the preciousness of life. And as you allow yourself to rely less on form to find your sense of fulfillment, you return closer to the perfect freedom and joy that you truly are, beneath all the meaningful distractions of physical life.
