REMINDER: As it was suggested in the Meditation Focus #214: Stepping Up Towards Oneness Consciousness, in which you were invited to develop and explore group consciousness with other like-minded souls, you are welcomed to participate to a global group soul communion, once a week, starting 30 minutes before the beginning of the weekly Meditation Focus, thus building up your level of group soul communion prior to joining with the larger assembly of souls at the usual time (16:00 Universal Time) every Sunday, and applying your revved-up group consciousness towards the current global meditation theme.
SPECIAL SUGGESTION FOR THIS SUMMER: Considering the powerful effects the many symbols appearing around the world and known as the "crop circles" can have to stimulate deeply concealed memory engrams encoded into our very souls, it is hereby suggested that, from now on, we all begin using those sacred geometric archetypal symbols as soul-awakening aids during our global meditations in this last stretch towards the coming big dimensional shift. You are therefore invited to focus your attention for a couple minutes on a different celestial glyph every Sunday, just before the start of the meditation, and simply allow the intricate design of each suggested symbol to stimulate whatever soul remembrance it is designed to elicit. From now on, you will receive by email, within a 24 hour period before the beginning of each Sunday's Meditation Focus, the URL to access the pictures of a freshly laid pictorial design created by the Intelligence that is behind this subtle cosmic acclimation and stimulation program. It is likely that the Glyph Makers will be delighted to see us using their creations in this manner during our collective meditations... Perhaps they've been waiting all along for us to begin doing so...
God is here. Wherever we are, the Universal Force of Love is there, within, around and as us. There is no separation. The only illusion is to think otherwise. From the very moment we were born to this physical existence, we have never ceased for a single instant to be One with All That Is. We know this... deep within the core of our Being. We are now coming to realize ever more fully what that Oneness means. We are all One. We are all God/Creator Source. It is as simple as that. And the very nature of this Omniversal Being is Love. Not a form of conditional Love between two distinct entities. Absolute Love. Omnipotent Love. All encompassing Love. A sacred feeling that resonates from the core of Who We Are to make emphatically known the fact of our Oneness. An Omniscient Intelligence that always knows what is best for each visible and invisible expression of its vibrant nature. A caring Presence that cherishes each sentient manifestation of its infinite Creativity... to a point that is so extraordinarily potent, once one is awaken to Oneness, as to dissolve any residual illusion of separation and render one's entire being like a dazzling supernova of blissful ecstasy. Experiencing from moment to moment that acutely powerful sense of loving, caring, engulfing Oneness is what is ahead of us all on our collective Golden Path of Light.
Even if from time to time the entrancing illusion of the ephemeral existence in this transient experience of life on planet Earth may overtake us and make us impotently disconnected from the One Source of All, even if the hurt and pain and tearful suffering of this chaotic time may sometime temporarily blind us to the perfect Grand Design now unfolding at warp speed in every realm of manifestation, the wheel of evolutionary change keeps turning faster and faster as we approach the quintessential threshold of global awakening to Oneness. As this juggernaut of change unfolds, we are being given the most wonderful opportunity to consciously choose to dedicate OneSelf to serve as One, and in all kinds of subtle and not so subtle ways, the Will of Good that is the vibrant essence of this godly Love that shines in us all. We have been given freewill precisely to allow us to make this a conscious choice instead of a default option, as is the case for all realms of nature where countless creatures are naturally endowed with this spontaneous Will to Good that instinctively guide their existence. In their natural state, when left unperturbed by outside unnatural influences, all forms of Life on Earth are benevolent and will not deliberately harm another Life form except to fulfill their naturally ordained subsistence needs, a behavior which is itself part of the natural order of things and has not in it a single shred of malevolence and ill intent.
As we learn our final lessons before graduating to a higher realm of vibrational existence, we come to realize that not only is the entire Universe imbued with such a divine benevolence, but we also now understand that every single experience we have been through, and even every single actor involved in cocreating this experience for us, were part of the teachings of this School of Spiritual Learning that all souls evolving in this field of existence go through by their own freewill choice. As it happens, the Love of Creator Source is expressed in what often looks like "mysterious ways" to our still slightly disabled sense of Omniversal Oneness, to the point of enabling violent actions in some so as to demonstrate by the absurd antithesis of Light and Love where we ought not to go if we are to recognize once again Who We Are and Who Everyone IS. Soon, a great number of souls will reach a stage of soul awakening that will enable them to rejoin once again the Universal Light Brotherhood which is comprised of all the ascended souls a truly universal family, a Light Soulhood, a Christic Fraternity of Love. To facilitate our own progress towards this Promised Land and the final epiphanic Revelations of 2012, we shall rekindle during our global moments of soul communions our dedication to serve the Will of Good through Feeling our Oneness, Being Harmlessness and Practicing Selfless Goodness, for the Highest Good of All as One.

Note: As you certainly know if you have attempted entering a state of deep meditation after reading theme-setting material such as this one above, the only way to actually reach a deeply vibrant sense of Oneness, at soul level, is certainly not to try to remember, while you meditate, everything you've read in this suggested meditation theme. Simply having a general idea of it in the back of one's mind is usually all that is necessary.
2. RELATED INSPIRATIONAL QUOTES
"Goodwill: The next step is developing unselfish purpose, a benevolent disposition towards others and the good of all life. Goodwill expresses compassion, generosity and forgiveness, and it nourishes the spirit of understanding which fosters cooperation. Goodwill is identifying yourself with another person or with something greater than yourself, a larger purpose. It is the obedience of your personal will to higher feelings such as altruistic love. Goodwill can function as a harmonizing energy and a saving force. Goodwill is our first attempt to express the love of God. It can be an atmospheric conditioner, setting a positive vibrational field for accomplishing constructive goals. It can create a pathway between higher spiritual realities and human life, building an inlet for the inflow of transformative, spiritual energies. Goodwill builds right human relations, for when goodwill controls your mental, emotional and physical bodies, you come into right relationship with others. It is a code of action which provides a guide for conduct in a wide variety of situations leading you towards selflessness and being.
The Will-to-Good: The next step is an awakening of the spiritual will, or will of the soul, which takes possession of your personal will and gradually transforms it. It is an alignment process, where you recognize the Divine Plan, the higher plan for humanity, and learn to embody it. You constantly work to expand your capacity to identify with a larger purpose. This is only possible if the focus of your life is in the mental, rather than the emotional, nature. The will-to-good leads to a dynamic, powerful and effective focus of service in your life. It works with the process of evolution and initiation, and with the ultimate Purpose of life. When you transmit the will-to-good to others, it can stimulate goodwill in them. A good seed thought to meditate on is: The will-to-good of the world knowers is the magnetic seed of the future.
Embodying Gods Will: This is the final step when you renounce your personal will and become a stream of Universal will or Divine will. This will is a synthesis of the spiritual will, the will of the human soul and personal or self-will. Your individual will is then endowed with a new power, rather than being annihilated or diminished, and is transfigured by submitting to Divine will and merging with it. This results in clear intention--a state of mind with a great tension ready to be released to accomplish an important labor. It also results in determination--an attitude that never gives up until the Divine Plan is fulfilled. Obstacles only increase the inner tension. Persistence is another result, based on continuous advancement and labor to achieve the goal and the Plan. To strengthen your alignment with Universal will, you can use the following affirmation: In the center of the Will of God I stand. Naught shall deflect my will from His. I implement that Will by love, and turn to the field of service.
"Harmlessness is the more passive side of Goodness in Action, just as non violence is the non reactive, passive side of Love in Action. It is good to do no harm... It is better to actually go the extra mile to Do Good - as guided from Within... It also ties with the fundamentally benevolent nature of this Multiverse which is the outer expression of Creator Source. Once we get it that the "We are One/I am God" reality is the ultimate resonant-with-truth paradigm, we will be in synch with this foundational nature of All That Is which continuously 'conspires' to not only avoid harming other aspects of One Self (even the predator/prey dynamic is intricately connected to the benign pro-evolutionary design of all 'things'), but also to protect, care for and cherish in zillions of ways all obviously sentient and less obviously sentient manifested forms of Creator Source."

5. Peter Deunov - 1944 Prophecy
Upon seeing what the theme for this Meditation Focus was going to be, Lou Bognon (firstname.lastname@example.org ) was inspired to write the following...
Dedicating Oneself to Serve the Will of Good - A Soul's Perspective
This themes words represent my souls deepest desire for my current life-script and each word here I live as I share:
Dedicating as in: choosing to, working for, giving in, and giving up.
Indeed in order to be dedicated to anything, we make all our choices with love from our heart centre, we work on perfecting and recommitting to these choices daily, moment by moment, in every waking now - and in acting upon these choices we also give up on many illusions along the way, any thing and any one that would detract us and deviate us from the absolute dedication we so heartily and so continually commit to.
Oneself no furtherance needed as far as explanations go we all know that we are indeed just a tiny-winy-little one self within The OneSelf.
To serve what greater verb than this?
In serving alone can we experience a true sense of trust and completion of our purpose to be here; in serving we understand that all we ever give to others we are simply and - only ever - giving back to Our Selves. That is why what is not given is lost...
In serving we share freely all that we are-have, be it ourselves, our gifts, our time-space-energy and/or our material stuff.
Serving at this level implies a highly developed sense and practice of generosity for we fully understand the interconnectedness of this sacred triad: abundance-generosity-gratitude. In isolation they stagnate and hold us in ego, fear, beggar status and limitation; together they take us joyfully and trustingly into the happy river flow we call to serve.
The Will of Good as in that happy river which always wills good to prevail, such as Light, Love, Peace, Harmony, Abundance, Joy and Trust.
The Will of Good adds to the OneSelf where any other little will of any one single little self can only subtract.
Good is but a convenient and simple coded word for All Things Godly.
Einstein used to say that coincidence too is just a name God likes to go by when he wishes to remain anonymous ; much in the same vein, Good for me is a word often chosen by us when we do not wish to say God.
Either word works for me - same difference - as we say in South Africa.
In service to Good-God Love
The following is was recommended by Sylvia Bucek (email@example.com) - also after seeing what the theme for this Meditation Focus was going to be. She describes the following as being about...
On July 11, 2010 (during a collective meditation and soul communion with the Global Meditation Focus Group* out of the blue I was momentarily transported to an unspeakably beautiful dimension that appeared to be a new kind of Earth. At first I thought I had somehow been beamed into Heaven I seemed to be standing in crystal clear water beneath a cerulean sky and was aware of being an immortal child, but I was also aware of being an adult who was entering a state of consciousness that is one with its greater self.
I wondered if I had died. No sooner did the thought come to mind, than I saw/recalled that the world, as I had known it, was fading like a dream and that I was a human Soul coming into Being.
I came back thinking that I had experienced a drill, like a 'test flight' as we head towards the year 2012. I had foreseen this event three decades ago during a Near Death Experience that had opened my mind to the inner kingdom permeating all life and I realized that my death was nothing more than the withdrawal of consciousness from the lower mind's perception of reality, whereas my Higher Self was showing me a worldview based on eternal life that one is always free to return to. Though return is perhaps a misnomer if one were to embrace the idea of being a thought seed from the Mind of God - a soul growing up in the world and blossoming into consciousness of Heaven on Earth in the beautiful Garden of Eden.
In a small way, I have known this all my life and have attempted to express it through art and written works. One of the characters I created is a human flower child named Rose who loves all Creation and recognizes her unity with all living things. In relating to a flower, she recalls the tiny seed's struggle through the underground and she knows how it feels to ascend to a new dimension above ground, always reaching toward the heavens to become all she can be. These days I can see how this analogy might also apply to our collective ascent into a new world. Now that the third density human drama is being played out, I am taking my cues from Nature and learning to navigate within the natural world, though in essence I have been here all along.
My earliest memories recall my deep love of Nature and appreciation for all things natural, including those that would otherwise be termed supernatural. As a child I grew up in a true-to-life wonderland and thought everyone else did, too. I thought we all lived in a magical world among angelic beings that come in all shapes and forms and that we all loved one another. I believed it was common knowledge that animals communicate with us and that we commune with flowers and trees and otherworldly realms. Back then I was unmindful of the veil between the heavenly strata and physical plane, nor did I know about the rift between man and the natural kingdom. Had I wondered about it, I might simply have thought that there is so much more to life than meets the mortal eye.
At age ten, in my mind's eye I saw that as a human being I was predisposed towards a consensus reality that appeared to be dead-ended, but my Higher Self was showing me that the human is essentially an immortal being on a spectacular journey to Heaven on Earth. Yet it seemed to me that part of the journey looked like an altered reality where it was possible to lose sight of one's natural self and become lost in a virtual world. (In my ten-year-old mind's eye I was seeing a vision of my future Near Death Experience that showed me dying). To the child in me it looked as though my adult self had disconnected from a dream-like illusory world and restored the Soul connection to this moment, which was somehow taking place outside linear time. My Higher Self was showing me that in order to stay in touch with one's natural self one simply needs To Be, (referring to one's Soul Being), and that in time anything else falls away. I anchored the moment in my mind, like an icon that encapsulated the entire vision. The icon simply shows a little girl in a yellow bathing suit, standing in crystal clear water beneath a cerulean sky and next to her head is a thought balloon, like you'd see in a comic strip, showing her adult self returning to that moment as though she were coming down from a mind journey that appears to be fading like a dream.
Fast forward to July 11, 2010 and my 'test flight' to Heaven, or a new kind of Earth that may have had its basis in the childhood scene described above, in that I was aware of being a child who was entering a state of consciousness that is one with its greater self, whereas the world as I had known it was fading away. Gradually it dawned on me, I was a human Soul coming into Being.
At first I was too overawed to talk about my experience, nor would I have known where or how to begin. The only scene I could compare it with was Jody Foster's trip to a heavenly dimension in the movie, Contact. Although I had no idea how to explain my 'flight' it nevertheless felt as though I must. But how does one express the ineffable? Intuitively, I packed a few things including pen and paper and, along with my cat Heather, retreated to a wilderness cabin in a woodland setting on beautiful Round Lake, Ontario. I had felt hesitant about bringing my pet along in that the woods around the cabin are home to many chipmunks and my cat is a beast of prey. But leaving her in town with a sitter was not an option when I went to close my suitcase and found Heather snuggled inside it. So the first thing I did, upon arrival at the cabin, was to ask the angels to please guide the chipmunks away from Heather. The result was astonishing. My elderly and otherwise rather lethargic cat seemed to wake up to the memory of an idyllic reality where everyone lives in happy co-existence and folks do not eat their fellows. It was very sweet seeing the chipmunks going about their daily business while my huge orange cat played in their midst.
Naturally I found myself tuning in to my own childhood and the innocence I had known. Although my favourite food back then had been meat, I was too little to understand the disparity between my love of animals and what I ate. As far as I could tell we all lived in a magical world of sweet love and sunshine forever. But I was born in 1941 and a world war was being fought so of course it was not long before I heard life on Earth crying for help, and I prayed for a way that I might help.
My Higher Self answered by showing me a vision of a kind and gentle world peopled by angelic beings who love all Creation and are here to help anchor Heaven on Earth. To the child in me the vision was simply a sweet love story told by my angel about the enchanted life that we all live in. On the other hand, to my adult self it seemed that in many ways I was growing up in a brutal world in which my job was learning to become utterly harmless.
I learned that, inherent in our nature, is the ability to transcend the lower self and ascend to a higher state of consciousness. I learned that we enter the human metamorphosis trusting with all our heart in the aspirations of Creator's Divine dream. I learned that our DNA is encoded with our transformation and resurrection, and that we must try to understand with all our Soul how to make the journey, according to the Divine Blueprint that is now being unveiled.
If you have already awakened (or are now awaking) to your natural self, then you realize that humanity is on the verge of a metamorphosis into a more highly evolved state of consciousness.
While it is possible to recognize our proximity to the new dimension that is dawning, in order to be there body and soul we need to leave the old dimension behind. A simple way to see this is by relating to a caterpillar entering metamorphosis. Imagine how, after the caterpillar forms its chrysalis, it completely disintegrates before reassembling into a butterfly. In the end it emerges from the chrysalis taking flight in the new world and touches down in the garden of its origin.
Using this analogy to underscore the Human metamorphosis, a book called Flight Manual takes us to the place where rebirth and resurrection represent a natural and effortless unfoldment of infinite Life.
Here is the author's extraordinary story that led to the creation of Flight Manual.
While living in the Caribbean in the 70's I had a near-death experience and came back with the memory of a heavenly realm and a revised view of life on Earth. I remembered leaving my body and looking down at the group of people that had gathered around the scene of the accident where I was put on a stretcher and loaded into an ambulance and taken away. I remembered thinking that the scene looked like a stage production. The next thing I remembered was traveling high above the earth and seeing my life flashing around me in the form of a motion picture on a wrap-around silver screen. My final memory saw me amidst angelic beings. An angel seemed to be coaching me, the way a drama coach might instruct a performer. Evidently I had to go back and replay my death scene on the world stage, and down I went.
My best friend, Maureen, was at the hospital with me when I came out of the coma.
She said, "You missed all the action, Syl."
I told her, "Mo, I saw the picture. And I volunteered for the sequel."
I may also have told people, we're actually angels on a Mind-journey back to Eden. Of course anything I said back then may have been attributed to brain damage, considering I was walking around with a concussion.
But if someone had asked me to explain, I might have said,
"Imagine you have died and left your self, and the world, behind. The one real thing you are aware of now is the shimmering, silver-white light cascading around you and flowing through you, turning you on to Love. You realize that your life on Earth is also made out of the same living light that is turning your world on to Love. You also realize that you can change your world picture and that you're free to go back and replay the scenes that kept you from living in Love."
Meanwhile I have learned that in order to make the journey we need to trust in our true core essence, which is Love, and we need to release the false created self that is aligned with fear.
In the end, letting go of the fear-based reality can feel as though the world is crumbling but if we trust in Divine order and let go of the need to control we'll be fine.
When my turn came to let go and let God, it felt like the floor had been pulled out from under me and I thought I would die. Out of the blue I found myself recalling my near-death experience of thirty-some years prior, as though memories could be downloaded and virtually relived. There I was, amidst angelic beings in a heavenly realm, bracing for the plunge thirty-some earth years ago, and down I went.
I prayed to God for a soft landing and the next thing I knew, due to miraculous circumstances, I was returning to my beloved Caribbean island that to me had always signified Paradise.
Being there now was like waking up to my life in the 70's and thinking I had dreamed thirty-some years ahead, to the end of time and beyond. But if one took the chronology factor out of the equation, then what I experienced was a glimpse, an inkling, of the ever-present infinite One Life.
If life on Earth is, in fact, awaking from the mortal dream, then perhaps all we need do is to consciously connect to Life and trust our immortal Soul.
Here is an excerpt from Flight Manual:
In the wake of global changes that at times seem almost certain to end life on Earth, a magical place is unfolding reflecting the Lion & Lamb ideal pictured since time began. Whether the picture is a memory of Paradise or a precognition of Heaven is difficult to tell until you pass through the portal to Heaven on Earth where the space in-between fades away.
When the space between Paradise then and now, like a dream, draws to an end, in the dawning light the magical place appears to be a new world. At first glance it appears to be a city of light in softly glowing pastels such as rainbows, or dreams, are made of. Where the rainbow touches down, the sleepy valley is cloaked in phosphorescent white and the glowing spectra dancing above it are dewdrops catching the first rays of dawn.
With the rising sun an angel appears on the morning mist as though it has brought her to the Earth. The veil slowly lifts to uncover the Earth in its natural state of grace and the angel emerges in this hallowed and magical place.
Emerging in the new world is a constant source of wonder and delight. It is magical, and miraculous. It is such an incredible high; you soar on wings of Love. Momentarily you forget that you're an angel. When that happens, just hold on to your hat and keep your flight manual handy. It is your angel's secret guidebook to yourself.
I began writing it over three decades ago, following my near-death experience when I came back thinking I was waking up in an angelic realm so of course the story begins in a magical place that is accessed through Heaven. For me it was wonderful seeing the magic unfolding here on Earth, and feeling it was a total miracle, and I wanted to share the feeling with the world but when I attempted to convey it in words, I drew a complete blank. It was as though the magic simply eluded me each time I shifted my thinking to the worldly frame of mind, making it impossible to tell the story in worldly terms, and yet I had to tell it.
In the end, I found that my eye of the needle was to juxtaposition the storyteller against an otherworldly being who is naturally adept at maneuvering in the magical reality where shape-shifting and time-travel are an every-day occurrence, and who is impervious to the human consensus reality that separates Heaven from Earth.
The character that evolved was Magic, the fuzzy caterpillar, Lifes channel for the guidebook to the next dimension, entitled, Flight Manual.
Magic dispels the myth about dying when he proves that butterflies, albeit supernatural beings, do not fade into spirit they just take to the air once they learn how to fly.
Whether the manual gives actual step-by-step instructions is difficult to tell, since it came to the author in code. Whether or not it is meant to be decoded is difficult to tell until you are passing through the rainbow to the new world On High.
From the very first page we lighten up and simplify as we make the journey to the magical land that is literally over the rainbow. Here every-day reality shines in its magnificence and miraculous transformations are the order of the day. Here the unsung hero is gradually unveiled as we recognize our kinship with natural life (while embracing our divinity but leaving the self-importance behind). When we relate to the tiny seed struggling through the underground we see that it comes with the shimmering blueprint of a flower; when we relate to the fuzzy caterpillar we see that above its head glows the image of a butterfly; no sooner do we relate to the magic of the little world than we are haloed by the macrocosmic whole.
As we recognize our unity with the sacredness of everything and identify with reverence for every form of life, the Human blueprint is gradually revealed and we become conscious of a majestic being whose all-embracing attitude is so inordinately gentle it is difficult to understand but when we open our selves to it we are swept away by Love.
Can you imagine living on such an incredible high? We could picture life in the Garden of Eden and emerge in our little corner of Paradise.
Maybe you are among today's emerging earth angels.
Maybe your heart is whispering, "it's time to remember our wings".
I hope that together we can help create Heaven on Earth.
Note from Jean: After suggesting to Sofia Aldunate (firstname.lastname@example.org) to see what she could have, based on the teachings she has been receiving for several years from what she calls the Christ Consciousness, that could be useful on harmlessness, she was inspired to write the following personal account of how she learned about this and what she understood from various personal experiences...
The Inclusiveness of Unconditional Love
When I look back into all the years I have been receiving these teachings from the Christ Consciousness, I can see now that they were all aimed at that goal, the goal of becoming harmlessness. Of course, at first I could not even realize this. These teachings were quite radical for me, so I did not dare to guess what was the real meaning behind them. The first words said to me about these teachings were that they are related to inclusiveness and not exclusiveness. Just that sentence got me wondering for several months. I was also told that the teachings would include everything related to love. I was gently asked to try to forget or get away from any esoteric, religious, political or any other teachings or points of view coming from what this voice called "the past". It was time to let go of the old and embrace the new... at least for me.
As any other person living on Earth, I have prejudices, my own taste, sympathies and preferences for certain kind of people. It is not that I was told I could not have them, but it was taught to me that beyond those preferences was a bigger truth. I remember very well when one day somebody knock at my door and when I opened it, there was this really disgusting person (from my point of view). It was a man, dirty, smelly, drunk and he wanted some money. I looked at him thinking my day would have been better off without his presence in my life. I was just thinking that when I heard a voice that says : "But, I Am also inside of him" and following that, something, that I don't know how to explain made me "feel" the presence of God hidden in the very depths of the heart of this human being standing in front of me. I felt so surprised, that I just had to close the door and sit down for a very long moment. You know, you always think that God could not possibly dwell in a drunken and dirty human being... (especially if that person is drunk). So, well, I had been wrong. God was there too. Another time, when I was walking downtown, I saw a very big fat man, a beggar, sitting across the street, the man was half naked and obviously mentally ill, as you could see it from his behavior. Looking at him, I was just going through my usual thinking pattern, when all of the sudden I felt the presence of the Christ Consciousness manifesting Itself as an overwhelming feeling of unconditional Love and again I heard a voice telling me "But I am also there". This really got me stunned, almost paralyzed. It then showed me that person from an absolute different point of view. And so it happened from then on that every time I felt a sense of rejection toward somebody, this Christ Energy would manifest Itself and show me that It was also dwelling inside of this or that person, until I finally got to understand after a couple years, I'm kind of a slow learner that no one, not one person, nothing in the Universe, no situation, was strange to God, not even me.
The "not even me" part was the most difficult one for me... Not a word of criticism towards me regarding my slow comprehension of all this was ever said to me by the Christ Presence. I also had other experiences that helped me understand in a deeper way the concept that we are really all One. These experiences happened to me in public places, sometimes into a crowded bus, or while going at the station to take the metro, or into a supermarket full of people where all of the sudden I would become overwhelmed by a feeling of intense and unexpected unconditional Love for all these "strangers", so intense in fact that sometime I would even cry. I would also feel a deep connection with all of them, something I couldn't explain to myself and this was all very unexpected to me because I was not intending at all to have such feelings. I did not think nor did anything for this to happen... I was not in a meditative state. I was not even thinking about Love or about loving others. Nothing would tip to me as to when this was going to happen. I mean, I couldn't even grasp the concept of this kind of Love. It was just a complete surprise to me.
So, all these experiences made me realize that we are all united through this Loving Consciousness. I started feeling that it would be absolutely crazy to even think about harming someone. To do that would be obviously to harm a part of myself. Why would I want to do that?... Now, did I always remember that? No, not at first. Many times, I remembered afterwards, and when that happens, I ask for forgiveness, not only from the person I unconsciously tried to hurt, but also I make an effort to forgive myself. Every time I behave "badly", a memory of a beautiful experience comes back to me and then I want to share it with others just because I am certain that it was meant to be not just for me, but for all of us.
Yesterday, I behave very badly towards someone. I was arrogant, harsh, selfish and disgusting. I woke up the next morning feeling so angry with myself that I couldn't stand my own presence. I sat down on the bed trying to go to the bathroom feeling completely unworthy to continue receiving these teachings about unconditional Love, and wondering what in God's name it was that this Christ Presence or Consciousness had seen in me to even take the time to talk to me. So, there I was, thinking about all this when all of the sudden I felt this Presence just in front of me, which took me by surprise. I just could not move because of the amount of unconditional Love being directed towards me. And as I was wondering about the meaning of all this, I hear this voice telling me: "Please, I want you to look at this". And then I see, as in a detailed movie being played in front of my eyes, scenes from the beginning of my life up to this day. These scenes depicts all the moments in my life that I had been "bad", miserable, selfish, disgusting... Everything was there, nothing was left aside. There were things I had even completely forgotten!!! After the 'movie' ended playing, the voice told me, "I have been with you in all these situations. I know ALL about them and I have never, ever stopped loving you. So what I want you to learn is to love yourself in every circumstance, just as I have loved you and will continue to love you always."
Tears were running down my face. I had received another beautiful lesson, only this time not directed towards not harming others, but about not harming myself. This has been, together with the other lessons, a very important one for me. I have become a lot more loving with myself. I make an effort not to judge myself in a harsh way and, practicing this, I have also become more loving towards others, more understanding, more patient, more compassionate. This has allowed me the gift of having inside my heart a place where I can retreat in tough times, a place where I can rest, love myself and protect and nurture myself so as to be able to face the next challenges. Every time I feel tired, lost, disoriented, no matter where I am, I remember I can go "HOME" anytime I want, because home dwells within me, home dwells within each and all of us, is always available, and always open to comfort, guide and protect us... We only need to remember and to allow it.
So "inclusiveness" was the key word really. It meant that nothing is "out" of me, nothing is "strange" to me. No one is my enemy because every person is a part of me, a precious part of me, as I am a part of all of you. Even if sometimes, when I get angry I forget, these teachings are so ingrained in me now that sooner or later I remember, and then the emotion goes away and a new day begins with the eternal hope that, this day, I/we will not forget again.
To all of you/us in Love
P.S. A vision was given to me together with these experiences. What I saw in this vision was the image of what we call the "devil" or evil, a dark figure approaching me from some kind of dark mist. While I was looking at it (I was in a meditation state) the Voice said "no matter how dark and evil a being might appear to you, if you are able to recognize consciously inside of him/her that little spark of divinity that resides inside of him/her (which is Me, the Christ Consciousness), and you focus your attention into that small spark of light strongly and lovingly, no harm can be done to you or anybody else, because this "dark" entity or being will begin to recognize this light inside of itself, and this way it will turn towards the Light and will be rendered harmless because of that. But the effort has to be made by the people working for the Light to recognize this eternal spark of divinity that lives inside everything and everybody, despite the outer appearances".
Unlocalised Identity And The Undivided Life
By David Fiske (email@example.com) - April 6, 2011
So much divides us from all the rest of earth. If our identity is localized, we know ourselves as separate from the milieu in which we live. I live within my defined boundaries, beyond which is everything else, apart from me. We live separated from other matter (soil, trees, rivers etc), from the other species (our neighbours here on earth), and from other humans by gender, ethnicity, religious affiliations, political boundaries, poverty and affluence, temperament and inclinations. Humans treat each other badly, show greed, prejudice, animosity. We try to ameliorate these divisions by ethical codes, religious injunctions, sermons and legal behavioural rules. But, as they say, we often pinch the cat in the dark and sometimes do wrong if we can avoid getting caught.
In Stalking Personal Power and Peace, I develop a thesis of the complementary nature of structure and flow. Both are necessary for balance. The paragraph above details some of the structures used to modify behaviour. Any good martial art training gives one the patience, courteousness, compassion, discipline, etc., that structure behaviour.
So I read a lot on how we need to show compassion, demonstrate love and all that in these turbulent times. Quite right too! But we also need to think of flow.
When I do my Taoist internal arts, when, for instance, in my Falun Qong exercises I do the first movement, moving energy up above the head, making a ball of it and bringing it down to the feet, to the earth and then up to the heart, I get an ecstatic thrill in that chakra. I feel and hear a hum (read about the Shabd in the Sant Mat movements). My tongue touching my top palate vibrates with the energy circulating in my body. I feel in touch and enlivened by Energy, saturated by Grace.
As far as the God of religions goes, I am an atheist. I dont believe in praying to such a God. But I do believe and experience an energy which seems universal, rolls through all things (Wordsworth) and has an awareness whose depth and profundity is a Mystery.
This aware energy connects all life, sentient or apparently non sentient, the good, the bad and the ugly.
In my opinion, when one is connected to this Energy, Life is flowing through one as abundantly as one has learned to cultivate It. It should thus become unthinkable to act malevolently towards any of Life. Life is one so why harm oneself?
A problem I see is that it is easier to make a mood of love and energy than to practice a discipline that cultivates it. Imagination can give one a quicker high than the continued daily practices of an Internal Art. But this high is a false satisfaction, based on nothing other than mood and if that mood changes, one is left with nothing but the emptiness of illusion.
When I spoke to a brother of coming Earth changes and calamities, he said he could not believe God would permit us to suffer. There is no such God; and if we expect such a God to stop us from getting the results of our own behaviour, we will still be twiddling thumbs and expecting Good News when the catastrophes engulf us.
In the Earth Rainbow Network's compilations, we read of all the terrible things that are happening or might happen. Apart from wringing our hands, whining or judging, probably the best thing we could do is to take a bath in Universal Energy.
We are not born into this consciousness. Future generations or other beings might well be. I think that each time I connect in this way, I become part of the redemption of humanity. I add a small building block into the gene pool, I add to the noosphere, and one day intolerable behaviour will be unthinkable, not because of any coercion, but simply because it is totally alien to how we are.
In the meantime, the pot is on the boil on Earth and we need to do something.
Each Sunday, I am part of a group of people that try to merge their souls for half an hour, and you can read of this in Jean Hudons writings for these meditation focuses. I think this is a fundamentally important work and probably the next evolutionary step for humans. It could raise us up a notch to a point where we practice ahimsa, non injury to others, other species and the Earth. Some people find meditation easy. Some cant get free of thoughts or fancies. One thing is sure, nothing comes without practice.
I feel so fortunate I can circulate my energy through my centres. It has been one of the dominant goals of my life. I would wish more people learn to do this. For one, I tire so mightily of living in a world where I feel so much pain. I yearn for going home where the energies around me cuddle and nourish me. I want another world, a world that is well possible but unlikely until humans truly FEEL.
Until then, we live a localised identity and have divided lives.
But we could be so much more. Life could be so much more.
The prophecy of Peter Deunov regarding the end of our civilization and the beginning of the Golden Age on Earth.
Also known under the spiritual name of Beinsa Douno, the Bulgarian Master Peter Deunov (1864-1944) was a being of a very high level of consciousness, at the same time an incomparable musician, that gave during his whole life an example of purity, wisdom, intelligence and creativity. For years, he was established close to Sofia where he lived surrounded by numerous disciples. He, by his radiance, awakened the spirituality of thousands of souls in Bulgaria as well as in the rest of Europe.
Some days before his departure to the other world, while he was in a profound mediumistic trance, he made an extraordinary prophecy in regards to our troubled epoch that we are crossing today, a prophecy about the end of time and the coming of a new Golden Age of humanity.
Here is this deeply moving testament. It is current and so vibrant that one doubts that these words were spoken almost 60 years ago.
During the passage of time, the consciousness of man traversed a very long period of obscurity. This phase which the Hindus call Kali Yuga, is on the verge of ending. We find ourselves today at the frontier between two epochs: that of Kali Yuga and that of the New Era that we are entering.
A gradual improvement is already occurring in the thoughts, sentiments and acts of humans, but everybody will soon be subjugated to divine Fire, that will purify and prepare them in regards to the New Era. Thus man will raise himself to a superior degree of consciousness, indispensable to his entrance to the New Life. That is what one understands by Ascension.
Some decades will pass before this Fire will come, that will transform the world by bringing it a new moral. This immense wave comes from cosmic space and will inundate the entire earth. All those that attempt to oppose it will be carried off and transferred elsewhere.
Although the inhabitants of this planet do not all find themselves at the same degree of evolution, the new wave will be felt by each one of us. And this transformation will not only touch the Earth, but the ensemble of the entire Cosmos.
The best and only thing that man can do now is to turn towards God and improve himself consciously, to elevate his vibratory level, so as to find himself in harmony with the powerful wave that will soon submerge him.
The Fire of which I speak, that accompanies the new conditions offered to our planet, will rejuvenate, purify, reconstruct everything: the matter will be refined, your hearts will be liberated from anguish, troubles, incertitude, and they will become luminous; everything will be improved, elevated; the thoughts, sentiments and negative acts will be consumed and destroyed.
Your present life is a slavery, a heavy prison. Understand your situation and liberate yourself from it. I tell you this: exit from your prison! It is really sorry to see so much misleading, so much suffering, so much incapacity to understand where ones true happiness lies.
Everything that is around you will soon collapse and disappear. Nothing will be left of this civilization nor its perversity; the entire earth will be shaken and no trace will be left of this erroneous culture that maintains men under the yoke of ignorance. Earthquakes are not only mechanical phenomena, their goal is also to awaken the intellect and the heart of humans, so that they liberate themselves from their errors and their follies and that they understand that they are not the only ones in the universe.
Our solar system is now traversing a region of the Cosmos where a constellation that was destroyed left its mark, its dust. This crossing of a contaminated space is a source of poisoning, not only for the inhabitants of the earth, but for all the inhabitants of the other planets of our galaxy. Only the suns are not affected by the influence of this hostile environment. This region is called the thirteenth zone; one also calls it the zone of contradictions. Our planet was enclosed in this region for thousands of years, but finally we are approaching the exit of this space of darkness and we are on the point of attaining a more spiritual region, where more evolved beings live.
The Earth is now following an ascending movement and everyone should force themselves to harmonize with the currents of the ascension. Those who refuse to subjugate themselves to this orientation will lose the advantage of good conditions that are offered in the future to elevate themselves. They will remain behind in evolution and must wait tens of millions of years for the coming of a new ascending wave.
The Earth, the solar system, the universe, all are being put in a new direction under the impulsion of Love. Most of you still consider Love as a derisory force, but in reality, it is the greatest of all forces! Money and power continue to be venerated as if the course of your life depended upon it. In the future, all will be subjugated to Love and all will serve it. But it is through suffering and difficulties that the consciousness of man will be awakened.
The terrible predictions of the prophet Daniel written in the bible relate to the epoch that is opening. There will be floods, hurricanes, gigantic fires and earthquakes that will sweep away everything. Blood will flow in abundance. There will be revolutions; terrible explosions will resound in numerous regions of the Earth. There where there is earth, water will come, and there where there is water, earth will come. God is Love; yet we are dealing here with a chastisement, a reply by Nature against the crimes perpetrated by man since the night of time against his Mother: the Earth.
After these sufferings, those that will be saved, the elite, will know the Golden Age, harmony and unlimited beauty. Thus keep your peace and your faith when the time comes for suffering and terror, because it is written that not a hair will fall from the head of the just. Dont be discouraged, simply follow your work of personal perfection.
You have no idea of the grandiose future that awaits you. A New Earth will soon see day. In a few decades the work will be less exacting, and each one will have the time to consecrate spiritual, intellectual and artistic activities. The question of rapport between man and woman will be finally resolved in harmony; each one having the possibility of following their aspirations. The relations of couples will be founded on reciprocal respect and esteem. Humans will voyage through the different planes of space and break through intergalactic space. They will study their functioning and will rapidly be able to know the Divine World, to fusion with the Head of the Universe.
The New Era is that of the sixth race. Your predestination is to prepare yourself for it, to welcome it and to live it. The sixth race will build itself around the idea of Fraternity. There will be no more conflicts of personal interests; the single aspiration of each one will be to conform himself to the Law of Love. The sixth race will be that of Love. A new continent will be formed for it. It will emerge from the Pacific, so that the Most High can finally establish His place on this planet.
The founders of this new civilization, I call them Brothers of Humanity or also Children of Love They will be unshakeable for the good and they will represent a new type of men. Men will form a family, as a large body, and each people will represent an organ in this body. In the new race, Love will manifest in such a perfect manner that todays man can only have a very vague idea.
The Earth will remain a terrain favourable to struggle, but the forces of darkness will retreat and the earth will be liberated from them. Humans seeing that there is no other path will engage themselves to the path of the New Life, that of salvation. In their senseless pride, some will, to the end hope to continue on Earth a life that the Divine Order condemns, but each one will finish by understanding that the direction of the world doesnt belong to them.
A new culture will see the light of day. It will rest on three principal foundations: the elevation of woman, the elevation of the meek and humble, and the protection of the rights of man.
The light, the good, and justice will triumph; it is just a question of time. The religions should be purified. Each contains a particle of the Teaching of the Masters of Light, but obscured by the incessant supply of human deviation. All the believers will have to unite and to put themselves in agreement with one principal, that of placing Love as the base of all beliefs, whatever it may be. Love and Fraternity that is the common base! The Earth will soon be swept by extraordinary rapid waves of Cosmic Electricity. A few decades from now, beings who are bad and lead others astray will not be able to support their intensity. They will thus be absorbed by Cosmic Fire that will consume the bad that they possess. Then they will repent because it is written that each flesh shall glorify God.
Our mother, the Earth, will get rid of men that dont accept the New Life. She will reject them like damaged fruit. They will soon not be able to reincarnate on this planet; criminals included. Only those that possess Love in them will remain.
There is not any place on Earth that is not dirtied with human or animal blood; she must therefore submit to a purification. And it is for this that certain continents will be immersed while others will surface. Men do not suspect to what dangers they are menaced by. They continue to pursue futile objectives and to seek pleasure. On the contrary those of the sixth race will be conscious of the dignity of their role and respectful of each ones liberty. They will nourish themselves exclusively from products of the vegetal realm. Their ideas will have the power to circulate freely as the air and light of our days.
The words If you are not born again apply to the sixth race. Read Chapter 60 of Isaiah; it relates to the coming of the sixth race the Race of Love.
After the Tribulations, men will cease to sin and will find again the path of virtue. The climate of our planet will be moderated everywhere and brutal variations will no longer exist. The air will once again become pure, the same for water. The parasites will disappear. Men will remember their previous incarnations and they will feel the pleasure of noticing that they are finally liberated from their previous condition.
In the same manner that one gets rid of the parasites and dead leaves on the vine, so act the evolved Beings to prepare men to serve the God of Love. They give to them good conditions to grow and to develop themselves, and to those that want to listen to them, they say: Do not be afraid! Still a little more time and everything will be all right; you are on the good path. May he that wants to enter in the New Culture study, consciously work and prepare.
Thanks to the idea of Fraternity, the Earth will become a blessed place, and that will not wait. But before, great sufferings will be sent to awaken the consciousness. Sins accumulated for thousands of years must be redeemed. The ardent wave emanating from On High will contribute in liquidating the karma of peoples. The liberation can no longer be postponed. Humanity must prepare itself for great trials that are inescapable and are coming to bring an end to egoism.
Under the earth, something extraordinary is preparing itself. A revolution that is grandiose and completely inconceivable will manifest itself soon in nature. God has decided to redress the Earth, and He will do it! It is the end of an epoch; a new order will substitute the old, an order in which Love will reign on Earth.
