So here we are reaching for the stars, and thinking that we are not worthy or able to get there.
I think the dual purpose of our journey here is to realize that we are worthy and able to make the reach and that in reaching we will understand that what we have been grasping for is already here. (When we say the “Kingdom of Heaven is within” we don’t mean in your tummy or any the part of your body. When you enter into a meditative or relaxed state, you “go within.” That means you begin to drop off your focus or attention on your physical body, you become an Observer of your thoughts and feelings rather than becoming enmeshed in them, and you become aware there is a “you” deeper that all this other stuff. There can be both a sense of calmness/peace as well as a flow/a connectedness with all things. That is not something you are thinking about, you just ARE, you are in it—you are in the Kingdom).
from the book: (hereafter I will work on putting book quotes in bold print to distinguish them from my comments)
There can be no Christ in man without man’s aligning to it. It is there as a silence until it is awakened, and when it is awakened it has one duty, which is to seek itself in realization.
Now we do this with an intention.
Willingness and intention are not about results, they are about our openness to grace/to the movement of God's love and transformational power within us.
(The) restructuring the self in alignment with the Christ frequency is the work of the time, the work of the time, the work of the time.
Again, this is not new stuff—when I look at that last quote I think of the St. Francis Prayer—“Lord make me a channel of your peace…” in the language of this book, “Let me vibrate as the same frequency of love as You do.”
we talk about Christ as a creation of the God Self inhabiting man in its fullness. Just think about that one.
It’s not an easy path, and it’s only not easy because it moves things. And when you unleash a cave by rolling away the boulder that has blocked its entrance, its face, and everything that had been sealed within comes out screaming as it’s exposed to the light, that is the process you have undertaken. And those you work with, like it or not, have a similar experience.
Now it doesn’t need to be hard. It doesn’t need to be hard at all. It simply needs to be, and all that is hard is your attachment to the regulations you have placed on the self for the self to be and see and experience the world in a certain way. That’s all there is to it.
One of my teachers put it a little more gently. She said, “When you ask to be in the Light or to be One with the Light/God, all the stuff that you are holding onto that is getting in the way will come up in your consciousness in order to be cleared.
Once we know that, the path becomes a little more understandable. Instead of getting all crazy about not being perfect, or getting angry at ourselves for being angry or fearful, etc. We recognize, “Oh, that’s my stuff asking to be cleared away!” I pray; I meditate; I share; I love; I support; I ask for help; I heal; I open myself to grace. I allow myself to move in this current of Divine Love that is guiding me home.
When you are in the Creator’s love, you are one with who you are in truth, and all of the things that embellish the self, that keep the self separate through embellishment, which means, “I am this, I am that,” all of those false tokens one hangs on their shoulders as reasons why they are separate from God’s love, or others’ love, or the self’s love, all of those things must be cleared. (I can’t add anything to that one!)
When there are enough people, frequency, at present, vibrating at a certain level, the change will be significant and will be felt, and will resound in a wonderful song.
Remember the old 100th Monkey story years ago? Well, here it is again. Instead of speaking of numbers, we are now speaking in frequency and vibration.
(Back in the ’60’s we did this little exercise where a group of people would lie down on the ground, and everyone would put there head on the next person’s stomach—so we were all chained out in a linked but haphazard way. The the first person in the chain was asked to start laughing [if he or she were not laughing already]. It didn’t even matter if he or she was faking it.
Well, that would start the next person’s head moving up and down, and inevitably that person would start laughing, giggling, for real, and then the next and the next.)
So instead of laughing all the way to the bank—we are laughing all the way to Heaven, and helping each other along the way.
