You are not only the I am in your life but you are also the alpha and the omega, the beginning and the end. Yet you are not arbitrary. You are a fact, a reality of being. Beyond your body you still are. How will you get beyond your body?
The common belief is that everyone who is born dies. The question is how? Since no one knows, no one questions the how. Remember, no one dies of old age. They die of related problems of old age. Few choose the moment to lay down the body and leave with full consciousness. More often than not life ends hooked up to an automatic narcotic drip that keeps both pain and pleasure at bay. Since consciousness is life, the mind may not always be able to override drugging to hold some form of consciousness that can be reached by other forms of consciousness. Love, true love is one way.
Fear also changes the quality of consciousness. It takes consciousness from expansive and all encompassing to closed and withdrawn. Unfortunately, the most aware of the planet fit this category of consciousness. To truly bridge the gap between illusion and reality, one must be willing to let go of the most commonly held images of life and be willing to embrace something so completely new but that which is as old as creation itself. You have learned death, pain and loss, just as you will learn to expand your consciousness to override all that you have come to know as life.
This expanded consciousness is contained in the teaching of Jesus the Christ when he said, “be in the world but not of it.” It is your only way to truth, knowledge and true love. To come to true knowledge of your Highest Self, you must allow your mind to be expanded through concentration so deep that it could be mistaken for death. Through this deep stillness one can then begin the internal transformation of the carnal self. This transformation is marked by true feelings of contentment and freedom. It also opens the space for true creation to take place. The first manifestations come through your most sincere intentions for being. The more you are willing to let go of the world, the more abundant your world will become. The more abundant your world becomes the more awe and expansiveness you will experience. Your truest expanded nature will be able to duplicate things, not by the labour of the physical body but by the intentions of your mind. You only believe you cannot create. Try believing in your ability to live out the words of Jesus the Christ when he said we could do all that he could do and even greater things.
The whole of creation gets closer each day to being able to conjoin the highest realms of creation and love within itself. There is yet one large step to becoming whole that must be taken. It is the great divide between truth and fear. Fear of what the truth might require of you. Most of you are ready to expand as long as you get to keep all that you are now. Yet what you are now is an illusion. Why would you want to hang on to something that is not real? When you become real your yearnings and longings disappear and are replaced by a deeper sense of I am, which needs nothing but its connectedness to the Beginning Mind.
