Realizing our creative essence

In the still, silent clarity at your core, know the I Am consciousness that is your Elohim: weaver of Bereshith, this vast creative container of Life: Weaver of the Tabah of Noach, the container that consciously receives and transmits the creativity of Life: Weaver of the Universal Tree with all of its nesting places, welcoming Life in all of its forms.

We have the innate ability to create these nesting places within us, which means to consciously participate in the birthing, nurturing and nourishing of all life. As humans, this is our responsibility. But we are not taking responsibility: In the mind of the Human collective we have reduced life to dead matter and a series of commodities, stuff to be bought and sold, polluted and used, and in doing so we are committing collective adultery, collective suicide.

It is not enough to say that the Earth will be fine without us. It is true that the Earth is perfectly capable of producing abundant life once we’re gone, but we are a part of this abundant creativity of multidimensional Life, and we are supposed to be consciously present here, to participate in the weaving of the world tree, the web of Life.

Breathe with awareness and look consciously at the world, wherever you are now. All that appears to the mind as external has a common Source which is at your very core, the essence of who you  are as Human-Being. All of Life, in all its diversifying forms is coming from that selfsame Source that you can feel as the pulse of creativity deep within you.  And in this spiritually awakened state you will know that there’s no exclusivity.

No single human is unique, and humanity is not a special creature, a special expression of the One consciousness. We have a particular role in creation, but know that everything you see around you is also expressing this One consciousness, the book of Genesis and Exodus call Elohim.

There is a pulsation of Life that we experience through the conscious breath, of gathering in to our center and expanding out through the six directions of space.

This center, is the core, the essence, of everything that exists, and is the source of what we call gravity: the gathering-in of consciousness.

Another way of saying this is that Consciousness is expressed in the Universe as gravity,  which allows life the spaciousness to blaze forth with creative life through the six directions.

Standing on the strand pictured in this blog, North Kerry, Eire, breathing with the Sun and the Sea, the rounded stones and sculpted sky and mountains, I consciously gather in, and allow myself to expand through the six directions. I realize the Land and Sea, the Earth,  are within me because I drink of their waters. It is the purest water, because it is always new, continually created as this moment now. The birds wade in the shallows, and fly overhead: the heat of the Sun on this cold spring day warms my blood and bones, because it is in my blood and in my bones.

This Universal Consciousness – Elohim – is all-inclusive. So we are advised, through our instructions given to Moses, not to make graven images, because any image we identify with or look to for salvation is ultimately not real. If you are searching for this deep inner connection, know that it is always available to you, and when you realize this Permanent Presence, you can never really lose it, even though your mind will cause you to wander far away from it.

So breathe consciously, feel the vitality of your multidimensional field, that is continually manifesting your mind-body. From there you move with awareness, and speak with awareness of Presence. This is that I that is Elohim: source of all creativity: source of all that is life affirming.

We are also advised not to adulterate the purity of life.  All pollution originates from the isolated human mind, and manifests in the world because of our unconscious habitual thought forms.

Go back to the Source to get what you need. Everything you need is there and you can share that abundance with everyone and everything around you by simply being consciously Present, and breathing, moving, and speaking with conscious Presence. This does not require any thinking: just the simple practice of being in and as, this moment, now, to the best of your ability.

When you drink in this Life, you’re drinking from the whole – particles and stars. And this is what the Hebrew texts of Genesis and Exodus are pointing to: the whole of life is calling to us, calling us into awakening. Then you know: what appears to the mind as outside you is also within you, and flowing through the whole cosmos.

And making this conscious connection with animals, plants and all sentient Life – which also means everything that exists at the elemental level – at this time now “the darkest hour” of humanity is really important. Because it is the darkest hour that is the opportunity for the next evolutionary leap in Spiritual Consciousness.

Those of us who can already hear and see need more than ever to hold all these creatures that co-create life in the nesting places in our consciousness. This affects all life from the sub-atomic particles to the Planetary consciousness and Solar system. To be here, as this moment now, breathing and feeling the web of Life coursing through us, and coursing through every living thing, is our greatest gift to the World.

Be still and know the I that is Elohim

this I is the conscious awakening of all humanity

this I is the conscious awakening of All sentient Life

from subatomic to interstellar Space.

Agape – Unconditional Love

IMG_1084

If I speak with the inspired language of the Human Spirit and of Angels but have not Love, then I become like the roaring echo of an empty vessel, the clamouring of restless and raging passions.”
The roaring of the incoming evening tide as the Earth rotates away from the constant presence of the Sun.

The Greek word Agape means Unconditional love, which comes from conscious presence, beyond the concepts of the mind. Agape is Love that has no opposite; it cannot become hate or anger, is non reactive. Agape is Love that endures in the face of what appears to be hopeless and insurmountable problems, desperate and unforgivable situations. Agape is conscious presence, which is a constant pressure welling up from deep within you.

Polar Bear mother and cub: it is easy to sentimentalise such images, or equally to dismiss them as merely instinctual: the bonding between mother and her newborn is essential for the health and vitality of the individual creature and each particular species

Polar Bear mother and cub: it is easy to sentimentalise such images, or equally to dismiss them as merely instinctual: the bonding between mother and her newborn is essential for the health and vitality of both the individual cub and the species as a whole.

This idea of Love is difficult for us to comprehend and realise in ourselves, so we run away from it, hide from it, because to embrace it, we must first drop all our ego positions and identities. The poem of 1 Corinthians 13:1-10 gives us some insights into what this means.

To translate a mystical poem from Biblical Greek is not easy, it is not the same as changing ideas from one modern language into another. Like Love itself, there are many layers, and translating is an art, an unveiling that reveals deeper aspects of ourselves as we engage with the text without fear of loss.

The beauty of this poem on conscious love speaks to the heart, and is why I have heard it read at so many weddings, funerals, and other occasions that mark important transitions in peoples lives. Agape is an opening to the universe – to the conjunction of male and female, the human spirit and God. Agape is our natural state, and holds the key to deepening awareness of the unity of all life, and points the way forward if we are to break free of all needless pain and suffering.

The translation of the first ten verses of the poem given below is an approximation of the nuances contained within the Greek text.

If I speak with the inspired language of the Human Spirit (Anthropos) and of Angels but have not Agape (Unconditional Love), then I become like the roaring echo of an empty vessel, the clamouring of restless and raging passions.

And though I have inspired prophecies and insights into the mysteries, and all gnosis (spiritual knowledge), and such faith that I could remove mountains, and have not Agape, I am nothing.

The bond between a young mother and her newborn infant is based on love: if the life situation is right then this can develop with minimal interference from the collective and individual mind.

And if I give away all my possessions to the poor, and give my body to burn as a shining light showing the way, but have not Agape in me, I gain nothing.  

Agape stays constant, is patient and kind, Agape does not envy or hate – knows no anger; Agape does not boast, and has no pride, it is not coarse or rude, does not insist upon its own way: it is not irritable (easily provoked) or resentful (injurious/destructive.) It does not rejoice at finding wrong but rejoices at goodness and truth; it bears all things, believes all things, endures all things. 

What we can know is only partial, our prophetic visions are only ever partial, but when that which is perfect comes (the peace of completion/Oneness with the creative outpouring,) the imperfect will pass away.

Star birth cloud – new birth formed by the creative power of Absolute life is continually present within the universe.

Agape is the creative passion of the universe for continual renewal. Renewal can come out of intimate relationships and it can come out of death and the dissolving of forms.

Dying star - Hubble telescope

The death of a star seeds space with new life, and new possibilities. The atoms and particles that formed our Solar system, the Earth, with all its sentient life, and all the elements that make up your physical body are the result of such a death – as it transforms into a creative outpouring of life.

Agape is unaltered in the face of calamity, danger, and the difficulties that we face in our every day lives. Agape is accepting not knowing: faith in the continual creativity of the universe – far beyond the understanding of the mind.

Agape enters a consciously receptive vessel: inner silence: inner peace, which means stillness.

The mouth of a cave on the Island of Patmos at dawn

The mouth of a cave on the Island of Patmos at dawn: the place of the revelation is here within you now.

In Agape is the realisation that by staying alive to the creativity that continually flows into the universe, creativity will arise in you as it does. This is to enter paradise here, now; to realise the Kingdom of Heaven, here, now; to find true freedom, here, now. You do not have to wait until your physical body dies to access this living reality, but come to a deeper realisation of the essence of life within you now.

Agape as Love is beyond what the mind thinks of as love; I will explore this theme in greater depth over the coming months.
