I am re-posting this wonderful article that my wife, Alia, posted today on her blog:
If I have “gone missing” from your comments section and neglected to “Like” your posts lately it is because I have been focusing my attention inward. For years I’ve agreed intellectually with the idea that “It’s an inside job” when it comes to spiritual work. And I’ve definitely done my share of that. However, about two months ago, I took a quantum leap “into myself.” I’m spending less time in virtual reality and more time in another Universe — the one within myself.
My inward journey has led me into a set of teachings authored by James Mahu. He claims to be a member of the Lyricus Teaching Order, a sub-category of the Wingmakers, AKA The Central Race. I have been particularly focused on the Six Virtues of the Heart: Understanding, Appreciation, Humility, Compassion, Forgiveness and Valor. I am benefiting greatly from studying, contemplating and journaling with regard to these qualities of the heart, as presented by Mr. Mahu and have intended to post portions of The Lyricus material on this blog.
Meanwhile, I found this article by Allen l. Roland, PhD over at Kauilapele’s site and felt that it was so in alignment with my own pursuits and experiences that I would use it to introduce the broader topic of Heart-centered inner work.
Note: Although the author of this article is Allen Roland, he refers to the work of another inner explorer, David Degraw. I was a bit confused when I first read this about just who was writing, so I offer that as a heads up.
Worldwide Spiritual Resurrection Happening
As Teilhard de Chardin once correctly wrote ~ We are not human beings having a spiritual experience, we are spiritual beings having a human experience ~ for right now the innate evolutionary forces of love and light are manifesting on the planet and they are demanding that we all participate and find our role in this rapidly evolving loving plan in action: Allen L Roland, Ph.D
I am observing a strange and wonderful phenomenon in my ongoing work as a heart centered consultant, advisor and mentor ~ people are no longer resisting the pull of their soul and want to be part of a growing worldwide spiritual resurrection.
David Degraw calls it a spiritual Insurrection or revolt ~
“When you take bold and courageous action, your consciousness expands, doors open, doors that fear-based consciousness cannot see. Bold and passionate action, free of fear, driven by love, is a portal into another dimension of consciousness ~ a new paradigm.”
David explains this in his new book Freedom in a Time of Mental Slavery: Excerpt:
“I get the same question over and over again. People always say, “I know how corrupt the political and economic system is, but what should I do to help create change? Should I focus on getting money out of politics or breaking up the banks? Should I use alternative currencies? Should I focus on environmental issues? Should I support solar energy? Should I grow organic food? Should I vote for third parties?…….I always give the same advice to everyone. First and foremost, forget about politics and external forces of any kind. Forget about 10-point political plans and ideologies. Those are all byproducts… First and foremost, focus within, align with your inner spirit and everything else will take care of itself. What is it that you are most passionate about? What do you love most? Go do that, and do it boldly, without fear…..We live in a time of fear-based mental slavery. The corrupt political and economic system is a byproduct of the fear-based ego. The shortsighted greed that is enslaving humanity and destroying the planet is a byproduct of the fear-based ego….”
David also poses the question Do You want Freedom ~ genuine freedom?
And offers the correct answer ~
“Lose the fear, the fear of being judged, the fear of fitting in, the fear of failure, the fear of societal pressures upon you, the fear of outside pressure of any kind. Lose the fear….Your freedom, your happiness and evolution, your path to becoming a positive force for all the people around you, therefore, our freedom ~ The path to global revolution, global evolution, the path to an entirely new paradigm will open up when you focus on what you love, when you align with your inner passion and flow. When you vibrate from love, the multiverse opens up to you. That’s the secret. That’s the real revolution of consciousness that we need. ” See article
David is writing something that I have been demonstrating for the last 40 years ~ When you vibrate from love, the Universe opens up to you ~ that’s the secret ~ that’s the real revolution of consciousness that is now happening ~ a shift from ego consciousness to soul consciousness facilitated by surrendering to love and your part in a loving plan by quite simply saying YES to your self and not being controlled by fear.
This is not an worldwide Insurrection but a worldwide Resurrection because we all once knew this fearless place of soul consciousness as a young child before we made the decision to become something other than our self, to become controlled by fear and to settle for less than our authentic self as well as settle for ego consciousness versus soul consciousness.
In Tenet Three of my Unified Field I explain how we separate from our authentic self as well as soul based destiny:
Finding the Unified Field was an act of surrender. Owning and proving it has been an act of courage. Initially, it was surrendering to and embracing an alone little boy within me who always knew this truth. Then it was a slow process of finding the courage to stand alone, own my truth, and speak it, regardless of the risks.
Let me make this clear – every tenet of my Unified Field is based on my own personal experience and my experience with my clients. Which is why it took eight years for me to fully prove it in 1987 and which is why I no longer call it a theory.
What follows are the three basic tenets of the Unified Field.
The basic underlying force of the universe is a psychic energy field of universal love, within which gravitational and electromagnetic fields, the strong and weak forces in the atom, and all other forces of nature, including time and space, are merely conditions of state. Within this psychic realm of love, paranormal events such as clairvoyance, telepathy, precognition and near-death experiences are also conditions of state. The principal property of this field of love is its propensity to unite, complete and fulfill all living beings within a constantly evolving loving plan. This field of love is the absolute constant of the universe in that within it, time and space do not exist. Thus, we are instantly joined with the past, present and future of a universe which is in the process of uniting, completing and fulfilling itself.
The consciousness of the observer is the determining factor in being able to perceive the Unified Field, and the depth of one’s sensory experience is what determines this consciousness. In that regard, our most profound sensory experience is the total surrender to what is deepest within ourselves, that is, the surrender to love and a joyful state of soul consciousness – which is the awareness of an evolving loving plan and the taking of responsibility for one’s function within that plan. The Unified Field is therefore a state of soul consciousness. That state which limits or denies our perception of the Unified Field is ego consciousness.
It would appear that the pain of not feeling loved for oneself and being seemingly separated from our original state of soul consciousness and the Unified Field is of such deep psychic proportions that, early in childhood, processes are triggered in the hypothalamus which result in a left brain imbalance and dominance as well as the denial, mistrust and forgetting of our connection to the Unified Field and the love and joy and a state of soul consciousness deepest within us. It is from this dark tunnel of pain, aloneness, despair and apparent death that the ego and ego consciousness is born – for survival and protection purposes only. As such, death or the idea of death, is an illusion measured by the limits of our consciousness.
Think of the ego as a protective cocoon that is eventually meant to be shed. The Unified Field can be visualized as a grid of great luminosity joining all living beings within its energy field of love. The words of Longfellow would seem appropriate in describing this all-encompassing field or grid: “The thread of all sustaining beauty that runs through all and doth all unite.”
In my work as a soul based heart centered consultant, mentor and advisor, particularly with combat veterans with PTSD ~ I literally help them find that lost child in our first session, then help them connect the spiritual love dots of their lifetime quest to find themselves in the second session, then assist them in taking total accountability for their lives in the next session and then they meet the magical child in the fourth session ~ a child who has been existing in a cocoon of fear and ego consciousness and waiting to be reconnected to its original soul based state of soul consciousness.
They all have access to these self-healing steps in my updated Kindle Book RADICAL THERAPY, SURRENDER TO LOVE AND HEAL YOURSELF IN SEVEN SESSIONS (not seven years). Here is the Kindle link
And here’s a link to the YouTube sessions of the self-healing process I teach ~ Watch, in the first 20 minutes, how Marina conquers her deepest fear and demonstrates that beneath her pain and fear is boundless joy.
Here is an actual but very typical example of what happens when they meet the child within in a guided visualization ~ and are offered another soul based choice of behavior versus the continued strategies and devices of the ego.
- What do I have to do to fully embrace you in my life ? OPEN YOUR HEART
- What’s my deepest fear ? BEING ALONE
- Is that fear an illusion ? YES ( LAUGHING )
- Can I Trust this process ? YES Why ? IT BROUGHT YOU TO ME
- Is there joy beneath my pain ? YES ( KNOWINGLY )
- How important is this work? A MUST ~ THIS IS IT Why ? SO YOU CAN RECLAIM YOURSELF
- What’s my next step ? SURRENDER , BE IN THE MOMENT
- Your question ~IS IT MY TIME NOW ?Answer ~ YES
- The most important advice you can give me now ? BE YOURSELF / AT THE RISK OF EVERYTHING
- Is there anything else you want to tell me ? I LOVE YOU
They are now at a place of another choice and have met their real coach ~ themselves. But in the process of this inner process, they have opened their heart and opened a door to not only their authentic self but also their authentic vocation within a loving plan in action.
So perhaps this simple Cherokee tale of two wolves best describes how we can all begin to reconnect to not only our real self but also our original soul based state of soul consciousness.
One evening, an elderly Cherokee brave told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people. he said “my son, the battle is between two ‘wolves’ inside us all.
One is evil / it is anger, envy, jealousy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, lies, false pride, superiority, and ego.
The other is good / it is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, truth, compassion and faith.
The grandson thought about it for a minute and then asked his grandfather:
“which wolf wins?…”
the old Cherokee simply replied,
“the one that you feed”
The path to the soul is through doors of fear but the greatest fear is that being myself is not enough ~ when in reality being myself is a spiritual being with a mission to accomplish within a slowly evolving loving plan. My deepest joy is knowing I’m in sync with my destiny as well as my part in a universal loving plan
