There is an aspect of ourselves that is invisible, yet very real. This dimension of ourselves that is such an integral part of each and every one of us has been called many names. The higher self, the sacred self, the inner self - all falling short of sufficiently describing what this dimension really is.
Along with discovering your highest and most sacred self comes an inner knowing that probably best describes this mysterious invisible aspect of ourselves. Discovering your highest self is at the heart of living a spiritual life and is the key to higher consciousness.
For many people the realization of their spiritual dimension never really dawns upon their consciousness. It seems like our fascination with the physical world has created within us a bias for that which we can see, touch, hear taste and smell. The common belief is that what we can perceive is real and that the invisible is unreal.
In spite of this our scientific advances are revealing new truths about this 'invisible world' to us all the time. With recent discoveries in the field of quantum physics it is slowly dawning upon us that the invisible world is in fact the only 'thing' that is real. One of the age old spiritual truths is that we are not human beings having a spiritual experience, but that we are spiritual beings having a human experience. What we really are is not the physical aspect of ourselves, but that non-physical part that is the very essence of our nature as human beings.
"Are you worthy of the Depth of my Mystery?" Out of the expanse of the Silence she whispered to me.
“For many are called, but few are brave enough to set foot upon the path that leads to the road of redemption, the narrow way... This journey is not for the meek. With the many dangers that lie upon it, even fewer make it to the peak of the Mountain.
If so, take this. Eat of the Fruit that grows upon the Tree that blossoms from the Waters of Life -overflowing from the wellspring in the midst of the Garden.
Eat of it's secret Manna, and drink of it's Golden Elixir. Let my hidden mystery emerge from the depths of your consciousness... and Ascend unto it's throne, into the Height of all Heights.”
-Thus spoke Sophia.
“Awakening is a shift in consciousness in which thinking and awareness separate. For most people it is not an event but a process they undergo. Even those rare beings who experience a sudden, dramatic, and seemingly irreversible awakening will still go through a process in which the new state of consciousness gradually flows into and transforms everything they do and so becomes integrated into their lives.”
~ Eckhart Tolle~
''Am I the ocean? It is too small,
A dream dewdrop on the azure blades of space.
Am I the sky? It is too small,
A lake in the bosom of eternity.
Am I eternity? It is too small,
Framed in a name.
In the vast region of namelessness I love to dwell,
Beyond limits of dreams, names, conceptions.
I am what I am always —
In the ever-present past,
In the ever-present future,
In the ever-present now.”
~ Paramahansa Yogananda~
Most of us have forgotten that we are nature. Nature is not something separate from us. So when we say that we have lost our connection to nature, it means that we have lost our connection to ourselves.
The pain that you create now is always some form of nonacceptance, some form of unconscious resistance to what is. On the level of thought, the resistance is some form of judgment. On the emotional level, it is some form of negativity. The intensity of the pain depends on the degree of resistance to the present moment, and this in turn depends on how strongly you are identified with your mind. The mind always seeks to deny the Now and to escape from it. In other words, the more you are identified with your mind, the more you suffer. Or you may put it like this: the more you are able to honor and accept the Now, the more you are free of pain, of suffering - and free of the egoic mind. Why does the mind habitually deny or resist the Now? Because it cannot function and remain in control without time, which is past and future, so it perceives the timeless Now as threatening. Time and mind are in fact inseparable.
~ Eckhart Tolle~
I pray for clear insight through my subconscious,
gaining wisdom by hunting the truth through my darkness.
Let the spirit of the Owl guide me into deeper self awareness,
allow me to meet my shadow self and better understand the hidden magick that I possess.
May the spirit of the Owl guide me and let wisdom fly unto me.
We are travelers on a cosmic journey,
stardust,swirling and dancing in the eddies
and whirlpools of infinity.
Life is eternal.
We have stopped for a moment
to encounter each other,
to meet, to love, to share.
This is a precious moment.
It is a little parenthesis in eternity.
Our souls do not speak
they communicate to us
through art, words, actions, symbols, metaphors, nature, animal friends, connection
vision, poetry, self care
deep feelings of love, peace, harmony
and everyday magic.
