We have two minds: lower and higher, little and big, head mind and mind of the heart, human consciousness and divine consciousness, ego and true self, false self and divine self, etc. We have four (or more) hearts: the physical heart that pumps blood, the emotional heart that feels, the spiritual heart that connects to higher thoughts, and the secret heart, the innermost hidden place of complete unity with God.
We have thousands of archetypes in our collective unconscious. We have several of those archetypes playing out in our life right now. Archetypes are templates, patterns, or hidden influences within our psyche. In less sophisticated times, archetypes were thought to be gods. Gods were anything that seemed to be more powerful than the lower human self: the wind, fire, celestial events, the sun, and human beings like Paul in the new testament, who was bit by a viper and didn’t die. The indigenous people thought he was a god until he told them differently. Great masters that have incarnated on earth are also believed to be God when they exhibited miracles or supernatural signs and wonders. Collective unconscious archetypes, part of every human being’s psyche, explain the old testaments description of God as killing, smoting, jealous, angry, vengeful, etc. These were all human attributes attributed to God.
The Source of all gods, archetypes, human beings, and all created things, is pure awareness, pure presence, uncreated essence, uncreated Light, darkless-Dark, lightless-Light, undifferentiated Love, or undifferentiated energy that is manifested in infinite ways and in a myriad of expressions on earth and in human beings. No wonder there is so much fighting over God. There are very few who are able to let go of their conditioned beliefs about God and directly experience the Living Presence of the Source of God.
The Source of God never changes. It is stillness, silence, and pure omniscient, omnipresent, and omnipotent presence. Our human concept of God, however, changes, morphs, and evolves as we grow, expand, and shift from our old egoic mind to our higher mind. Our understanding or interpretation of the undifferentiated Source evolves as we let go of our conditioned beliefs, sit in the still presence, and allow God to reveal who God is. Our unique being will filter what we experience into meaning that makes sense from the standpoint of our own perception. The more still and silent our mind, and the clearer our heart center is, the clearer the perception.
The concept of God has evolved over the ages as the mind of human beings has evolved, from nature gods, to celestial gods, to masters who came to teach and point humanity in the right direction. The pointing is not the thing itself however. Now in this critical time in our history, humanity has a chance to choose to awaken to the truth that the Source of God is beyond our human understanding, and requires a shift in mind. The pure presence of God is in every molecule and submolecular space on this earth, including every human being. We are already hardwired for God. NOW is the time to willingly allow a software upgrade. Every human being needs to open their mind and heart right now, and say YES to the download. It is time now to wake from the sleep of the unconscious, wake the sleeping giant within you, and use your God-given power, in your God-given higher mind, to bring divine creative solutions to the world’s current challenges.
The mind of the heart (divine intelligence and higher Love) is the most POTENT force on earth. Empowered by the Holy Spirit, human beings are unstoppable. Let us use our higher divine nature and higher mind of the heart to bring peace, prosperity, and harmony to everything and everyone here and now. “Come to your right mind” (1 Cor 15:34). “Be transformed by the renewing of your mind” (Romans 12:2).
In quantum physics, if you do not observe a particle, it is not there, and it stays in its potential energy form. Unobserved means unmanifest possibility. The powerful presence of God is the same: it is infinitely powerful potential, and unlimited possibility, that is already inside of every atom, every cell, and every physical body now on earth. It is in the potential energy wave form and only needs the human mind to observe, notice, and focus attention and intention on it to make it manifest in your life and in our world.
If the Spirit of God is not in your belief system, it is never actualized. If it is not seen, according to quantum physics, it is not there. If you believe there is a higher power within you, it is there and you can use it. If you don’t believe it, or think it is a fantasy, or delusion, then that is true also, as the potential remains in its unseen, unmanifest energetic wave form. By our waking up and recognition of the power of the Universe at our disposal, we can use it for the highest good of all. If it is misused for greed, control, or manipulation, it will destroy you in the process. It has been kept a secret for ages because of the potential use of this power for harm, rather than for the good of all. I believe humanity has evolved far enough now that we can recognize and attain the power of our inner hidden god nature, and can use it for the good of all. Choice and personal responsibility are the keys.
This powerful presence was in Jesus, Buddha, Mohammed, Moses, Krishna, Ramana, and is within every human being. The difference is our capacity to receive the higher Light. Different people have various abilities to open, recognize, believe, see, humble the ego, empty, surrender, and let go of old paradigms and attachments or identifications with the old way. We vary in our capacity to receive the new upgraded software. The old way was using critical thinking with the lower mind of the ego, fierce independence, each one to his own, competition for limited resources, repress feelings, ignore the body except for hard physical exercise, and struggling to get ahead. This resulted in hardened minds and closed hearts. The feminine spirit was ignored, or all together rejected. We now see the fruit of this old way of the ego mind being in control.
“Sing to the Lord a new song” (Isaiah 42:10). Let go of your old beliefs, old way of thinking, old false self, and start anew with beginner’s mind. Be open, curious like a child, explore with new eyes, discover anew what is really right in front of you. Do not be blind to the deeper spiritual presence that is in and through everything. “He sees many things, but does not observe them; his ears are open, but he does not hear…Hear, and look, that you may see!” (Isaiah 42:18-19)
“Remember not the former things, nor consider the things of old. Behold, I am doing a new thing; now it springs forth, do you not perceive it?” (Isaiah 43:18-19). Unconditionally identify with your inner hidden christ nature. It was in Jesus and it is in you and me, but we have to recognize it to make it visible and manifest. We must leave our false self behind and step up to our higher destiny. All the power of the universe is at your disposal to use for the highest good of all if you will just get out-of-the-way and open to receive it. Empty so you may be filled with the light of the Spirit of God. Wake up and recognize that all that Jesus did, you may do and even greater things!
“Who among you will give ear to this, will attend and listen for the time to come?” (Isaiah 42:23). Now is the “time to come”; now is the shift of the ages. Now is the critical time for you to wake up! An urgent appeal is made in Romans: “Besides this [love in oneness/nonduality] you know what hour it is, how it is full time now for you to wake from sleep…the night is gone, the day is at hand. Let us cast off the works of darkness [ego] and put on the armor of light…put on the mind of Christ Jesus” (Romans 13:11-14)
It is time for everyone to live like the character in the movie Groundhog Day. He woke up every morning and it was the same day all over again. He got to experience the result of doing the same thing over and over again, thinking the same thoughts, and believing the same things that resulted in the exact same experiences. Once he woke up from the unconscious influences in his lower mind, he changed his mind, changed his beliefs, changed his attitude, changed his thoughts, changed his words, and changed his actions. The result: his experiences changed, life became wonderful, and he was transformed! It is time for our collective personal groundhog experience! “Real is inward, spiritual, and of the heart; not external, literal, physical or in the head” (Romans 2:28-29). The change must be made on the inner spiritual level as a change of mind to the higher mind of our divine nature. Changing the exterior is never real or lasting change.
The key is beginner’s mind. The key is to empty, surrender the ego, let go, and say yes to begin the download of the divine mind software! You are already hardwired. All you need to do is recognize it! Observe, notice, pay attention, stay alert, and expect to see the visible manifestation of the Spirit!
“There is no distinction because all egos have fallen short of perfection and all true selves are one with God already” (Romans 3:22-24) Just change your mind!!! Be your true self! Be the loving, compassionate, wise, divine-natured being that you already are!
“The promise is guaranteed to all and rests with grace…Be fully convinced that God is able to do what he has promised [come again within your body and entire being]…in the presence of God, who gives life to the unconscious and calls into existence the things that do not exist” (Romans 4:16-21).
Be your I AM presence!
