How many thoughts do we have each day? Estimates are tens of thousands, many being run through your mind from external sources, mindless, unconscious, subliminal; with a steady stream of stimuli coming in our eye and ear gates. That is why it is beneficial to take some time to be mindful; examine your thoughts, watch your thoughts like you would watch clouds pass by overhead. “Be still and know that I am God.” Restore your soul in the green pastures by the still waters. Quiet your mind by dropping your awareness into your heart space…
Our relationship with Abba Father is reflected in our thoughts, which come from our beliefs. What you don’t believe is filtered out of your awareness by your brain, which receives innumerable messages all day, every day! The subconscious mind processes everything and is a gate that lets only the data that support your beliefs into your conscious awareness. Our thoughts create our feelings, and what we think about our feelings creates our emotions. If our thoughts are negative, twisted, perverted, distorted or earth-bound, our feelings will be of shame, blame, anger, fear, sadness, resentment, worry, bitterness, pessimism or doubt. Our emotions then color our thoughts and we are in a vicious circle, a downward spiral.
If our relationship with our Father is that of a slave to a master, we will begrudgingly attempt to obey a harsh taskmaster and there will be no joy, just a sense of duty or obligation. If our relationship is as a friend, we will have an easy, light companionship, but we won’t be the image and likeness of God, and there will still be separation or differences between us. If our relationship becomes as a son to his Father, we will inherit the kingdom and have a familial resemblance, but we will still want to go to our own room and spend time away from our Father! We will still have a separate identity, meaning we are still in duality (eating of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil).
But if we become a bride of Abba, one body and one Spirit with Christ, we are intimately related; we know our Beloved and want to share everything; want to get inside our Beloved, spend all our time together and be as one! We definitely will start to look alike and finish each other’s sentences! We will be passionate about each other, desire to please our Bridegroom, delight in each other and have rapturous, joyful, mind-blowing encounters and amazing experiences that just multiply and increase our Love’s pure Light! Our Love and Joy become so contagious that they fill the earth with more radiating Light; ripples of pure Love bathing the earth! NHOEN!!!!
Slave thoughts lead to more slave mentality. Friend thoughts lead to more friend consciousness. Son thoughts lead to more son and daughter awareness. But heavenly bridal thoughts lead to more Love, Joy, Peace, Harmony, Goodness, Passion, Delight, Rapture, Mind-blowing experiences and encounters, as well as transfiguration, translocation, and transmutation of the world into the Kingdom of heaven on earth! The Bride becomes one body and one Spirit with Abba! The Bride is one body and one Spirit with the Christ! The Bride says, “It is no longer I who lives, but Christ who lives in me, as me!” The Bride says, “I surrender all; I am hid in Christ!” The Bride says, “I yield my all; Christ is my all in all!” Christ is all and in all; Christ is perfectly one with our Creator!
The upward spiral begins with Bridal Consciousness, awareness of the upward call to be one again with our Maker, our First Love, our Source of all Love and Life! Our belief in the teaching of Jesus that he has already given us his glory so we may be one with his Father so we may become perfectly one, allows our brain to stop filtering out the higher Truths. Our thoughts are elevated to heavenly things, which changes our feelings to higher Love, Joy, Peace, Harmony, Wholeness, Completeness, unlimited potential and infinite possibilities! Our emotions transmute to Fullness of Joy, Rapture, Delight, Ecstasy, Bliss, Absorption into Love, Oneness, and Unity in Spiritual Marriage as we think with the same mind as Christ’s Mind about our feelings of oneness with Abba!!!!
“Break with the past to know Christ, in order to gain Christ and be found in him, having his righteousness through faith; that I may know our Creator and the dunamis Power of his resurrection; become like Jesus in the death of all human Adamic inheritance/lineage, that I may attain the resurrection from the dead and be the image and likeness of Christ, the new being” paraphrase Phil 3:1-11
“Let steadfastness have its effect, that you may be perfect and complete, lacking in nothing” James 1:4
“Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect; but I press on to make it my own” Phil 3:12
“One thing I do, forget what lies behind and straining forward to be one body and one Spirit (spiritually married as bride), I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God to be his bride…hold true to what you attain…our commonwealth is in heaven on earth…allow the ascended Christ to send his Spirit and Fire to change your lowly body to be like his glorious body (the new birth), by his dunamis Power” paraphrase Phil 3:13-21
“The glory which you have given me I have given to them, that they may be one even as we are one, I in them and you in me, that they may become perfectly one” John 17:22
“The Spirit and the Bride say, “Come!” Come out of the duality mind of satan, neurological trees of good and evil in your brain. Come into perfect oneness, nonduality, the neuronal tree of life, the ascended Christ! Have the same Mind! Have the same one body, one Spirit! Have the same glorified body, soul and spirit; become perfectly one by entertaining bridal thoughts! Create a new neuronal network of heavenly thoughts!
