"In the company of One" were the words I clearly heard upon awakening one morning. This phrase perfectly expresses the energy of the times we find ourselves in. It informs us that at all times we are in the company of One, whether alone or with another.
One appearing as: flowers, trees, rocks, or even the chair we may be sitting in. The mistake we make, which in fact is the whole cause of the human condition, is our acceptance of a sense of separation--from each other and Source. We have a God/Source and...
Our human eyes see the many, and we erroneously assume that everything and everyone is separate. It certainly looks that way, but could there be an infinite God and something else? Who would of made it? What would it be made of and where would that leave an Omnipresent, Omnipotent, and Omniscient Creator? If God is not Omnipresent, Omnipotent, and Omniscient then what sort of God do we have in our consciousness?
Every person who seriously asks himself; "Who am I, how did I get here, and what on earth am I supposed to be doing?" aught not begin an inner journey to find the answers unless he is prepared to get information he may not like, because a serious inner journeys are is a little like opening a proverbial "can of worms".
Artifacts discovered during a serious inner dig more often than not are found with many long standing and cherished beliefs attached which will require bloody footsteps to remove.
Countless is a good word for all the times over years that I asked; "Who put me here and why did they do it, because I surely would not have chosen this!" But alas, with time comes the realization that everyone indeed consciously or unconsciously choose their life experiences.
In fact, each and every one of us begged for the chance to be on earth at this profoundly spiritual time. We chose to be here to complete our own inner dig, and then help free others from the chains that still bind so many to the three dimensional belief system and for those ready, be guides leading them through the fourth, and finally into the fifth dimension which is the dimension of unconditional Love. Metaphysically speaking, the energetic significance of the number five is Love.
The reason this is such a powerful time in the history of mankind, is that we as a race have finally evolved to a point where we can to let go of the three dimensional false concepts, teachings, and beliefs we have heretofore accepted as truth.
Organized religion and metaphysics have always been about changing bad pictures in to good ones, and patting themselves mightily on the back for doing it. But now comes the universal kicker knocking those unwilling or unable to change, right off their feet and into self righteous fear which is manifesting as an intense amount of proselytizing about hell and damnation to anyone refusing to stay locked in the old.
What is this "kicker"? It is the knowledge that nothing needs healing, correcting, or changing for there is only ONE, always has been, and always will be, and that ONE already perfect. This is the scary secret that the leaders of most organized religions who function primarily from fear based beliefs of duality and separation don't want you to know.
Their ego selves are not receptive to anything new or different from what they already know and so they have nothing new to give their followers. They falsely believe that they already have all the answers. Churches and their leaders could wake up to so much more if they chose. Religious "leaders" could lift their congregations to new levels of consciousness and truly serve if they would only allow themselves to open and begin to think outside of the box they have put themselves in.
If everyone suddenly woke up and realized that God is within and not in a building or that they didn't need an intermediary to teach them truth, where would that leave them and their multimillion dollar churches? Fear keeps most of them stuck in what has worked in the past, but these teachings can only fade because teachings that worked in the past will no longer resonate with people as they evolve to new levels of awareness.
Am I alive? Are you alive? This is the key question because if we are, (and I highly suspect that we are), then we must be in and of the One and only Life there is, that which we term God. If so, we too must constitute all that the One Life is. One Life manifesting ITSELF as us.
ITs completeness can only ever be our completeness. ITs wholeness appearing as our wholeness. ITS intelligence appearing as our intelligence, and on and on infinitely. We can't have just one little part of God if God is all there is. Life is Life is Life...
It is at this point in our inner digging which may have gone on for lifetimes that we finally discover the pearl of great price--Unconditional Love-- the ONE manifesting ITself in infinite form and variety but always remaining ONE.
Unconditional Love is the realization of ONEness.
Everyone's physical, emotional, mental and spiritual experiences manifest outwardly according to the state of the depth of their realization of truth--their attained state of consciousness.
Many love to quote; "The truth shall make you free." Especially when expounding their particular truth to others. However, the full and correct quote is; "And ye shall know the truth and the truth shall make you free."
I/Source/God is always expressing ITself and because IT is all there is, Its manifestations and ideas are maintained and sustained forever by spiritual law.
So why is it that our day to day living experiences do not always express in complete, whole, or harmonious ways? Like the person who starves to death because he is ignorant of having million dollar bank account somewhere, we too do not realize or believe that we hold a million dollar account within.
Truth must be realized before it can manifest because we are creators. Our inner IS our outer. Mind is the substance of matter. We really are the creators of our lives, and we have the courage to ask ourselves; "What have I been creating?"
Time is running short. Are you ready to enjoy the Company of ONE?
