ISA 46:9 Remember the former things, those of long ago; I am God, and there is no other; I am God, and there is none like me.
We have forgotten where we came from and where we are going. We came from the one God, and we are returning to one God. In our own way, each of us is “part” of God and seeking to express God in this lower world. Mankind and everything around us is speaking to us- trying to tell us about God. The sun, the stars and the wind beckon us to return home. All the things we believe in and fight for have, at their core, the light of truth. At our core is our God.
ZEC 2:10 "Shout and be glad, O Daughter of Zion. For I am coming, and I will live among you," declares the LORD…13 Be still before the LORD, all mankind, because he has roused himself from his holy dwelling."
We are God’s temples. God will put his house is order so that every man will be God’s Word made flesh. Yes, this world may seem dark and full of shadows, but everyone has the light within them. This spark given by God is our life, and this spark of life grows until our whole nature is consumed and controlled by Christ. God lives in us and is, therefore, always with us.
From the smallest form we can detect to the most expansive universe we can imagine, God’s life and nature permeates it all. What I have shared are simply fragments of truth and glimpses of reality along with the shadows that follow. This has all been expressed from my ever-changing perspective. I am certainly a truth seeker, but I should not be confused with the Truth Giver. In other words, I share what I see, but I know my spiritual sight cannot be perfect. I stand on the mountain of Truth with all of mankind seeking to ascend to the top. I have no idea how high I am or how far I have yet to go.
I am like many others who feel the urge to awaken from this dream state. We feel like we are lost in our own dream. Yet, in this dream, the characters suffer loss, we cannot be harmed nor changed. We experience so that we can know what is right and what is wrong. We come to know for the sake of consciousness. When we fully awaken we see that we are the still the Son and Image of God. We had only left the Father for a “time” and into a “space“, but none of that will “matter“ when we return from our dream voyage.
So don’t let the shadows of the great dream trouble you. Let these shadows of this world comfort you because they represent a supreme, benevolent Force that creates, permeates and controls all the actions of the universe. You are never alone. You are here because God desired YOU to be. Your life started with God and will end with God. The distance between these realms of existence is the excursion of consciousness. Consciousness makes the trip from here to there and from now to then, but your True Self is always found in the here and now. It is in that point of singularity, of oneness from which we have all come.
We can look at the world differently. We need not dwell on these shadows of this world, but rather we can use them as signs or aids on our path to God. While walking along a path, we don’t stop and stare at the sign thinking we have arrived. No, we should read it, evaluate it and then move along the path. So it is with this world and our walk with God. The signs will surely help to guide us along the way, but we do well to keep our eyes on the prize, which is Christ! Once Christ is our only life and light we will see no more shadows, but only the reality of God. We will know no more pain, but only the peace of God.
1 COR 15:28 …then the Son himself will be made subject to him who put everything under him, so that God may be all in all.
This seems the fitting passage to conclude this article, or should I say book? God seeks to fill all things with Himself. God has to know all things, so God must be all things. The One who lives forever is God and God alone. To have eternal life is to become One with God. We have all come from God and will all return to God. We may have thought we died many times along the way. We may have thought we were in pain many times along the way. We may have thought there was no God who loved us many times along the way. However, those were just thoughts based in ignorance and not the reality. When we awaken to the higher reality, we are no longer the one in the dream, but the one having the dream. By living and eventually controlling the dream in our Christ-mind, we will come to know and live in the higher reality of God. This reality takes us closer to the realization that God is all in all. We have forgotten this, but as we draw closer to the Truth, we will remember. Then God will re-MEMBER into the glorious body of life and consciousness, so that God may be known as all in all.
God’s peace, love and understanding be with us all,
