Good morning friends! Lauren (human) and Sar'h (divine) here with you all. The Beyond the Veils of Maya (defined below) Series continues...
My human body has just awoken. The rays of the golden sun and salty air poured through the cracked windows of my new California home signaling it was time to rise. The whistle on the kettle, letting me know it was time to pour the water into the french press, and sit down to write. Only I forgot the French Press needed to be pressed and now my coffee is full of grounds. Human fail.
On Friday, 'we' posted on Ryver, that we dove back into writing the book and would take a pause - two days which was more like two lifetimes - with the posts for a bit. The book is now - 16 hours of writing later - an entity of its own creation. It's fascinating.
I also wrote - "One thing I'd love to hear about is bringing awareness to the multiple realities we exist in naturally. I am having this especially at night before I go to bed - lately about 8 p.m. Without a movie, TV or music going I find myself in the last hours before bedtime off in the mystery school of my own soul who is showing me how to perceive Self in realities simultaneously and with human awareness."
I will get to that but first a quick note on humanizing divinity...
I had written in the past few posts that the human never becomes enlightened - instead it becomes a facet of our master self or soul in which it retains human qualities. Yet, I would say my human is assimilating to the wisdom of the soul through awareness.
Assimilation is defined for mySelf as the process of taking in and fully understanding wisdom.
In other contexts, assimilation is synonymous with "fitting in." It is often used in the context of a person or group of persons moving into a new and foreign land and learning the ways and language of the new culture they find themselves in.
For me that culture of assimilation is not to a group or culture, but assimilation to the wisdom of the soul distilled from all experiences in and out of body. That is where I fit in, where the lines of separation have dissolved between HUMAN AND DIVINE.
The only place in the universe(s) where we can and would experience the separation from our divinity - knowing we are God, also - is Earth -- in it's illusion of maya.
And everyone here on this page created Earth -- for the experience of separation only to have the joy of returning to self once again.
For those new to the site, "beyond the veils of maya” is a term I use for an expanded perception of reality outside duality, gravity, and linear time.
In Autobiography of a Yogi (Chapter 30) by Paramhansa Yogananda, he explains the 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.
The Banyan Tree represents not a space to meet and leave the human behind but a place for our human expression of Self and our GodSelf to have no dividing line.
When I first began working with clients and myself being my most frequent client, Sar'h whispered to me.
"One day the conversation between human and divine will merge into ONE voice."
In sensations, she said it was the experience of separation between human voice and soul voice that we would arrive AT-ONE-MENT. The true meaning of atonement as found in biblical discussions.
Thus, the Banyan Tree gatherings are a place to experience the AT-ONE-MENT. It's not that you leave your human problems at the door. It's simply that human problems cease to exist when you are at one in your humanity and divinity.
All those human problems were illusions created by the maya, the illusions, on Earth.
The Banyan Tree exists beyond the veils of maya, beyond the illusions of separation between human and the God, also.
As my human self becomes more at one with my God nature, my divinity, I am stepping into multiple realities AND with human awareness.
Here, I let go of the expectations of grandeur. I think some of us are still expecting to walk on water, to appear in a living room of another and be seen there. Let's simplify the experience of multiplicity and bring the human facet along, if you will play with me for a bit.
For example (separate experiences we all have):
Beyond the veils of maya, there is no separation, no linear time to distinguish between two realities.
For example (simultaneous experiences):
When I asked how others were experiencing the multiple realities, I felt a little resistance and some found it too obscure, so I wanted to make it concrete for the human sake.
I understand. It seems we are not going to wake up one day and be all aware all the time - we actually could if we did not bring the human along. But because this human is hopping the divine experience train and riding it into alignment with Self, I invite you to celebrate the "smaller" more human experience of multiplicity that lie outside the veils of maya.
By starting small, my soul tells me, it opens a floodgate for human awareness of dozens realities - AT ONCE. I sense with a perception shift, my soul told my human, you will begin to view the multiple-reality experience in a new light.
I have had moments where I am in twelve realities at once and aware - yet that's only been twice in two years - and each time I was so drained, ungrounded and confused. By starting with little concrete examples for my human - the soul already knows, of course - I am creating a space for my human to ease into the experience, to be grounded, and to be able to discuss it with you beautiful, radiant people.
Another way of perceiving realities was recently brought up by Xanthe and Ruth lately - the perception of contrast.
One example would be seeing the contrast internal. The reality of how you felt in one situation drastically changes - yet the situation has not. Ruth said that she used to get upset when her husband went to see her step-daughter - a relationship she tried to make work and it simply hasn't. She said she found when he went to see her this last time, she found that she was not upset but at peace with the relationship where it was at, right then.
Compassion in action. Honoring everyone where they are at without trying to change it. Easy to understand mentally. Beyond GRAND when the sensation runs through the cells of your being.
Another example would be observing your reality versus another with compassion.
Xanthe said, "My sister is moving out, and I’m very aware of multiple layers of that as it is occurring. And what has been interesting for me is that over the six months we lived in the same physical space, for most of it and increasingly, I have felt we have been operating in different realities. The detachment, awareness of her has varied, yet arriving at a place in the last two weeks in particular where she just feels far away to me and it’s all perfect."
So I'm going to ask again. One thing I'd love to hear about is bringing awareness to the multiple realities we exist in naturally. Please comment below, on Ryver, or send me a personal note, if you are not quite ready to share with the full audience.
Also, just a funny note, I popped into the Keahak reality yesterday, just like I will pop into the concert/ mass consciousness reality on Friday (surfing across the realities and not getting stuck! woot!), and I noticed Adamus borrowed our Banyan Tree for an experience. I though it was quite funny. For the record, ours is much better:P
I hope everyone has an amazing Sunday or Monday or whatever day you are reading this. I'm taking my human body to pilates to see if I can't get the engine tuned up.
Much love and big Texan hugs.
