Friends, with the physical and etheric move, and in this new space of existence, I invite you to read the following, and ask yourself if you are in the place that fits your current soul experiences.
I am sensing a few people in this Third Circle space are simply peering (that's cool) and sneering (nope) into the pane of the window from outside, roll their eyes at the new moon gathering space, and have not yet stepped into the experience of sharing the God, also, among friends. Or simply do not wish to have that experience, and that's okay.
This is a place to see other souls through the eyes of the divine AND be seen for who you are through the eye of the divine - because you and I as sovereign souls created it that way. To share from the experience of the heart space, where your unique humanity and divinity meet. The Center of Being.
It is not a space to compare your mental level of consciousness with another's perceived level of consciousness. There's plenty of other spaces, places for the human free will to play out, where that is entirely appropriate - ones you can pay to be in or find on Facebook.
I sense beyond a doubt the majority here - we have hit the tipping point - of those who honor and grace this space and the Banyan Tree with their God-ness/ goodness is no longer going to be able to support those who are here to simply peer and sneer. There's a handy unsubscribe button at the bottom of the email should you need it, but I respectfully request you read the whole article before doing so. Thanks for stopping by.
HUMAN LIFE IN THE GOD, ALSO EXPERIENCE
A friend of mine once met Gopi Krishna to photograph him for his book jacket in a New York City apartment.
Chuck is his name, and he asked the radiant being before him what the secret to enlightenment was.
"As often as you can," he replied. "Think about God."
Now my friend told me this story some years ago, and I did not believe in God external, so I rolled my eyes.
I still don't believe in God external but I know now - I had hit the glass ceiling on God awareness - a ceiling that is now shattered beyond repair.
My days are filled with no more distractions like gossip, group dynamics, or perceived human struggle. They are filled with the unparalleled experience of knowing I am God, also. Every breath, every step, every interaction no matter how mundane it seems to the human is an experience of the God, also state of being.
And now I understand what Gopi Krishna meant. I embody it, though I would choose different words.
So here it is - my words. As always, I invite you to write your own and post them below with an audience who will honor them without the mental comparison exercise, or better yet, why not write a whole article or make a video to share on this space.
God Individualized meets Spirit & Bursts Forth in Joyful Expression = Conscious Creation
I see without eyes, sense without emotion, and know without thought God is a living, breathing stream of pure consciousness that flows from the source of soul individualized - without energy, only pure consciousness/ all-seeing soul awareness - and meets the river of Spirit universal in an unfiltered, unwavering stream of pure creative joy. And it creates every single experience I have in every single reality I experience.
I sense my Soul as Spirit or God individualized. It is the immortal, immaterial essence of my being, holding the wisdom distilled from all human lifetimes, between lifetimes, and beyond lifetimes. I sense my soul as an invisble library of wisdom integrated from all experiences.
I lean into the experience of knowing my soul is inimitable. It cannot be imitated or copied. It has always existed and will always exist beyond the constructs of time, space, and physicality AND without governance from any outside force - without governance by this human incarnation and the mentality of this human facet. And knowing Spirit never wanted to govern anything. That lies outside it's passion.
I see without eyes, sense without emotion, and know without thought Spirit as the soul of all of creation - a creation without agenda and detached compassion - and on this planet, for the experience that is human life. I see Spirit's only passion is to know it is God, also. Spirit - the soul of the greater consciousness - with wisdom distilled beyond indivualized experiences.
I see so clearly the experience of maya on Earth is a soul creation - a giant playground in which you have the grand experience of Returning to Self, once again, and know the perceived separation between human and divine is and was an illusion. It meets in the Center of Self, the Center of Being.
True creation - conscious creation - without energy or effort - occurs, for me, in the space in which the two - Soul AND Source - meet in the MAGIC that is BEING. From that space every creation unfolds in response to expression of the JOY of BEING.
In El Morya's chosen words - he also invites you to write your own - In the mighty ocean of consciousness that is the will of God, I find I can suddenly be still and BECOME, I can BE the drop of sovereign individuality - the place of no movement and instead dynamic motion within the all that is. Being is perpetual becoming.
And for me, in this space, the dualistic lines between external and internal are no longer perceived.
WHAT MAKES THE PRISON DISAPPEAR?
For me as the individualized soul, it is only in moving beyond the veils of maya, that I can be freed from the Earth prison and still embodied on Earth.
If you are new, beyond the veils of maya is a term I use for an expanded awareness beyond duality, gravity, and linear time.
In Autobiography of a Yogi (Chapter 30), Paramhansa Yogananda explains the ancient Vedic scriptures say that the physical world operates under one fundamental law of maya, the principle of relativity and duality.
It is only through maya that we perceive a separation between God external and ourselves as God also. Further, it is only through maya that we see a separation between human and divine. Maya was created by us and for us to have the experience of the Return to Self.
And in bringing the human along into individualized ONE-ness of SELF, there is another way out of prison. An AND, if you will.
I was on a video chat with my partner D yesterday. For an extended period of time, we just looked into each other eyes. No words were said aloud, and the soul spoke volumes.
To see and be seen beyond the veils of maya is what my embodied experience is about, it is why my soul says we will be here for a while longer AND it is why I created this space. You can see how I would not want others stepping into it who were not ready or do not want to show up in this space. If you feel the potential in your soul's passion, please stay a while and see how it goes.
Tears rolled down my cheeks as I saw how truly amazing D's soul is and he saw the same in me. This experience is beyond the human construct of love. It is beyond an roles, any conditions, and is not limited to boyfriends or even friends. It is how I see the whole world (now, gosh it took a long time). It is how I see so-called strangers.
And to have that reflected back, well, it removes the bars from the prison cell created by the veils of maya.
There is no separation between human and divine. There is no separation between Soul and Source, AND there is sovereignty of individualized Spirit and Spirit at large because none want to govern, they want to passionately express and experience - something that can never be comprehended by the mind that defines perception as either or and not in 'the AND.'
"Do you know what makes the prison disappear? Every deep, genuine affection. Being friends, being brothers, loving, that is what opens the prison, with supreme power, by some magic force. Without these one stays dead. But whenever affection is revived, there life revives." - Vincent Van Gough
My heart is where my humanity and divinity meet. My heart is where Soul and Sprit collide in passionate expression of joy. That is the Magic of Being, and the Banyan Tree is where we meet for the experience of that passionate expression.
And that is where I will see you all on the March 17 new moon, or anytime you grace this space with your being-ness, your God-ness, and everyONE here at the Center of Being is deeply honored from the Center of our Being to yours. There is simply no room for anything beyond the infinity of Self here.
Beyond Teaching & Learning there is...
