Awareness

During unhappy periods of your life, you can become obsessed with the past and what the future holds. Little or no attention is given to the present moment. The past is constantly in your thoughts because it holds memories of emotions yet to be released. The present is experienced as a stepping stone to some future time when you achieve happiness. Most of your mental energy is focused on the past and projection to the future. This energy is used to fuel an illusory time frame when hopes and wishes are fulfilled. This mode of thought avoids the present moment. It is only by being fully aware of this moment that you can access truth and receive clarity on your current situation. Through presence of mind you allow feelings to be expressed.

IQL titles 1 Feelings are energy in motion in the body. Emotional pain is energy seeking release. The default setting for the unconscious mind uses emotional pain to fuel repetitive thought patterns of victim hood and blame. If you quieten the mind for a few moments, through stillness; you can sense turbulent energy in the body. Scan your body from head to toe, see where feeling or sensation arises in your body. As you simply observe energy, without attaching a label to it, the sensation dissolves on its own. Mental activity only serves to define the feeling as hurt, anger, guilt or shame. It is thoughts about the feeling that cause emotional suffering. When you resist a feeling and accompanying thoughts, mental agitation increases. Awareness connects you with the true source of energy. Through awareness, thoughts are observed without attachment. The source of love is within you, accessed through awareness. You can connect to awareness through breathing. Simply focus on the breath as it rises and falls in your chest.  At first, thoughts may demand your attention but through perseverance the mind starts to quieten. Thoughts can be like a runaway train, depleting your energy. It takes clear intention and focus to enter a place of awareness. In the calm oasis of stillness, you encounter your true being. Awareness proceeds from true being; it cannot be achieved through a mind made self or ego.

Ascension of Consciousness

Emotional congestion thwarts love, brooding and snarling, it lives in the shadows of fear, vengeance and betrayal. This towering babel of infractions of love, finds its foundations in the souls of men, its walls in his heart, and its smeared windows in his confused mind.

Attachment to form is the architect of pain. This multi-storey self trembling under the seismic activity of a fraught imagination and eventually crumbles beneath its igneous layer of egotism.

Life is governed by inexorable conditions. The world springs from the nature of our soul. In its pure state, the soul is fluid and transient. In its unnatural state, it is in the stasis of self, buttressed by beliefs and expectation, providing the soundtrack and narration for its masquerade as it parades through the apparent world. Desire is the float that carries the self aloft but fear halts its procession.

Fear is the harbinger that warns the soul of moral decline. Fear demands the penalty for transgressions are paid. Progress of the soul is not by linear procession, but by ascension of state. The egoist self lives in ignorance of this from human existence to human existence until the monolith of pain becomes too cumbersome to bear. The conditions of egoist thought and action lie within the soul. The ego subscribes to birth and death, it is governed by time. The soul is governed by the Law of eternal Being. The soul must pay for infractions caused by the wilful ego upon the whole. It is aided in this by the Law of Cause & Effect.

The world mirrors the soul’s state of consciousness. The ego is ignorant of this and projects its faults onto others. The truth living in the soul, known or unknown, is of unity. All life is one. Therefore, all humans are shareholders of transgressions, blame and vice. We are here because we are liable in making amends for our past actions that have imparted upon the whole. When the soul becomes aware of its reason for being in human form, its ascension of state accelerates and its moral nature overthrows the false master.

However, this metamorphosis is not without suffering. The mirror of truth is an unwelcome intruder to the ego, while it is the window of freedom for the soul. The inlet of vice must exit through the outlet of suffering. Denial of feeling the effect of wrongdoings eventually overpowers the capricious ego and turns the finger of the projectionist firmly inward. The ascension of the soul marks the decline of ego. The ego’s surrender marks the maturity of the soul indicating its maturity and awareness of its union with all life. Then the star seed of human consciousness shines brightly amongst the firmament of men so that the performance can match his promise.

Emotions are the mind's  best counselor

Feelings on a low vibration must be released through the body. Waiting for feelings to erupt through egoic stories aggravates the feeling body into anger and aggression. The feeling body is the true counselor for the mind. If a thought is disharmonious with the universe, the feeling body will correspond to that.
We live in the residual outcome of feeling and thought. How we feel and think now determines what we are going to experience in physical reality.
The physical reality that occurs now is the outcome of previous thoughts and feelings. We must accept what is now. We cannot change it. But we can shift our attitude and feeling so that the physical reality we are moving into improves. The more one focuses on feeling good the more good things come. Continue reading
