Spiritual Revolution

Earnestly I seek You Psalms 63:1

ESV 1 O God, you are my God; earnestly I seek you;
my soul thirsts for you;
my flesh faints for you,
as in a dry and weary land where there is no water.

A more accurate statement cannot be said of me! My Soul Thirsts for You. I have been a seeker of God and the Truth for most of my life. That includes the childhood years. I have come to this earth this go around to really KNOW God in a way I have yet to Know. There has been the deepest of yearnings in the very core of my being.  It is to Love and to Be Loved.

Initially my search began in the Christian Church. I was raised a Southern Baptist in the US Air Force. Sometimes we simply attended the Protestant services, which were generic in structure so the Methodist, Baptist, Episcopalian, Presbyterian denominations, and so on were accommodated. However, whenever we were anywhere near a Baptist Church it was there my mother shepherded my brothers, sister, and me. I enjoyed being a part of this community. I learned of Christ’s love for me. I learned of forgiveness. I learned that NOTHING could ever separate me from the Love of God…Nothing, not even myself. I learned what it means to be a true servant. Servant. The very heart of who I am.

The church taught me about community, too. In the 1960’s when the world was in turmoil over the Viet Nam War, it was the church where we gathered our strength and our solace. I lived in a community filled with all branches of the military and we drew strength from one another. We went to school together, to church together, shared meals with one another, were there for each other should one of our family members not make it home alive.

The 1970’s ushered in my teen years. I turned thirteen (13) in 1971. Changes were assailing me in so many ways. I had my first real kiss as we transitioned from living in the lushness of Wiesbaden Germany to the arid climate of Albuquerque, New Mexico. People were protesting in huge numbers against the Viet Nam War. The end of it came a year later. Unless you were part of the military community, you could not even begin to know the jubilation we felt when President Nixon said he was bringing everyone home! Most of my friends were wearing bracelets for the POW’s & MIA’s and we were hoping we would be able to take the bracelet off soon. I had a bracelet for Sgt. Ryan and he never came home. I remember the day I took it off and put it in my jewelry box. I cried for him and for his family.

My search for God &Truth continued. We were in the middle of the Sexual Revolution and the Women’s Rights Movement. Abortion became legal when I was sixteen (16) years old. I will never forget that day. We were assailed with tremendous force on what we were to believe, how we were to behave, and so on. I wasn’t seeing a whole lot of God and Truth. What I was seeing was Anger & Frustration. And then there was the “Alternative Lifestyle” going on all around us, swirling in the ethers. The Drug Revolution. I embraced it wholeheartedly. I tried just about every drug available at the time. I quit going to church at fifteen (15). I bought metaphysical books and devoured them with a fierce hunger. I listened to FM radio all night long. Music was the gateway to a whole new way of thinking for me. I purchased the Satanic Bible. I read anything I could on Astrology, Witchcraft, Numerology, Eastern religions. You name it and I dabbled in it. Numerology was taught to me by my eighth grade math teacher. I was exposed to Transcendental Meditation in the tenth grade. I always felt I was before my time. Not many people seemed to be on the same path as me and I felt lonely. Still, I kept searching for God and for Truth.

Fast forward a few decades and my search continues; only now I am not alone. While I was in college in my thirties (30’s) and studying computer science, a new and wonderful thing happened to all of us…the INTERNET! It was just released by the military (that is who created it after all)in the middle nineties (90’s). None of us knew what a great liberator and unifier this new technology was going to be. One of the first browsers, after AOL, was Excite! And I got an email address immediately. Soon after Yahoo came out & took Excites position. Then there was Google, and we all know what happened after that. We are GLOBALLY CONNECTED and it is exciting!

Now I am really not alone because we are in the throws of a Spiritual Revolution. My soul sings with joy because of this. Like-minded souls are connecting. We are gathering strength. We are affecting social and political policies. We are beginning to shape economics. No other time in history has shown the wide-spread generosity and concern for others as the time we are living in now. Social enterprise business models are being established in rapid numbers. The term Conscious Economics is beginning to creep into our everyday language.

“A social enterprise is an organization that applies commercial strategies to maximize improvements in human and environmental well-being, rather than maximizing profits for external shareholders. Social enterprises can be structured as a for-profit or non-profit, and may take the form of a co-operative, mutual organization, a social business, or a charity organization.”http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Social_enterprise

“We are so close to a world that works for everyone that I can taste it. The right kinds of enterprise design, money and finance, government, local economy and social-ecological accounting are at our fingertips. We only need to make enough consensus through dialogue in diverse communities to bring this about. This requires open-minded and mindful people who operate out of maturity and mutual respect.” Torrey Byles [http://consciouseconomics.org/defining-conscious-economics]

It is an exciting time to be alive! And you know what? I have finally found Truth and I have found God. The Divine was inside of me all along. I just didn’t know it.  I believe it is part of my mission, my dharma, to pass along what I have learned. Yes, I am still a servant and I will serve humanity with the gifts, talents, and strengths I have been blessed with. Now I can breathe a sigh of relief. I have found You, God. I have found Truth and my soul is at peace. My niche is called Namaste Healing Center and Thrive Farm, an organic permaculture urban farm  (social enterprise)and I work with the forlorn, the forgotten, and the very people that Jesus came to serve. I am honored to have been chosen for this work and I give it my all. Namaste

♥ The Ascended Master Akasha :

Today I wish to introduce a new idea to you. It is part of the Divine Plan. It is something that you agreed upon and that as you entered upon the great path of resurrection you would enter into a conscious daily conversation with your I AM Presence that is your true great God Self.

These conversations don’t have to be long but I do encourage you to start writing some letters to your Presence, using a journal and you write one page. The whole idea is to enter into a daily dialogue with your Presence and be able to chart what unfolds so that you can start charting the difference that it is making.

I say to each of you, as long as you do not succumb to the appearance side of life and teach yourself that in all things there is always solution and to make that such a sovereign attitude, unbreakable in your being. To all things that appear in the world and that appear in people’s lives there is always solution.

Start talking to your Presence a little bit more strongly, more intimately, more personally and bring to the Presence that which you face each day.

Letters to the Presence can be a wonderful experience where you are communing:

“Oh Beloved I AM, I just love to greet you. You are my true glorious God Self. Oh Beloved I AM, come forth and express your Presence through my joy. Express your Presence through the intelligence of my mind. Come forth and express Thy Will through my feeling side of life. As I go on about my daily activities, Beloved I AM that I am, I seek not to do one thing without being certain that Thy Presence is expressing through my mind, my thoughts, my feelings, my actions, my decisions, my desires, my hopes, dreams, my aspirations. I look to you Beloved I AM, Infinite and Divine Consciousness, expressing through my being and world and in all that I am seeking to accomplish.

And where there are challenges, Mighty I AM Presence, I look to you. I look to you for a solution here. And when I enter out into the world, when I’m working alongside others and there are challenges that rise up or disagreements or arguments, let me remember that Thy Presence abides in everyone else’s heart whether they know it or not. I know it and that’s the difference; I know it. | Track 18 | And it is no longer acceptable to me when I am out working in the world not to bring your presence into everything that I am doing.

I am ready for miracles. I am ready to observe your Presence being the solution to every problem, to every appearance, to every disagreement, whatever that is, I just love to look to you, Beloved I AM, to come forth and be the revelation, to be the answer. Connect me at all times with the right people, in the right place, at the right time. Offer Thy guiding Presence. I wish to come to that place that I know that when I am thinking I am thinking constructively; that when I am thinking there is a vein of Higher Intelligence that is expressing through my thoughts, through my intuitions, through my field of resonance and sensitivity.

In my Resurrection up into Thy glorious Presence, I offer to you that which are factors of resonance, intuition, sensitivity, to be that which is taken up by you. And Beloved I AM, when I am out in the world make sure that I am shielded, that I never take on the discord that is generated by others. Seal my in Thy great Cosmic Tube of Light that makes me invisible, invincible to the discord that yet remains in the outer world.

Oh Beloved I AM, keep me ahead of time constantly aware of all that I might face and always, always, always send forth Thy Presence out in front of me. Beloved I AM, keep me mindful and in deep comprehension of the words of the prophet, ‘There can be a Presence that goeth before me and doeth all things’.

Oh Beloved I AM, I know that Thy jewel abides within my heart and the nature of your expression is Perfection. Beloved I AM, I have heard that Akasha will decree from her temples that you now begin to unleash your Presence, your Power and Perfection from Thy great God centre within and that I am in this year of 2011 to call upon you, ‘Beloved I AM inside me, come forth and RELEASE, UNLEASH, TRANSLATE, INTERPRET your Perfection.’ I understand what this means. I am acknowledging Thy Presence within. I know that your Presence is Omnipresence, Omnipotence, Omniscience, All-Knowing, All-Loving, everywhere present, Infinite Perfection.

You are awake, in fact, it is your presence inside my heart that has awakened me and you are awake. And by my efforts, by all the meditations in the past, every time I’ve turned my attention within, every time I’ve acknowledged, every time I have decreed, your Presence has grown within me, awake and active, and now your Presence, in this year, 2011, the first year of our stepping onto the path of resurrection, the next great activity is to unleash Thy Presence, Thy Power throughout my being and world.

How will this occur? Well Beloved I AM, my Ascended Master teachers are reminding me that not even you, nothing can get into my outer world of form, of experience, of substance; nothing can get into my outer world including you, my own Beloved I Am Presence, without that first abiding inside my consciousness. So when I say to you, Beloved I AM, I acknowledge that you are awake, I acknowledge that you are active and I am using my free will, I am speaking to you, my own great God Self to UNLEASH the power of your Perfection. INTERPRET and TRANSLATE your Perfection through my consciousness. And it is through this great activity that you will unleash the Christ I AM ultimately as the only acting activity within my consciousness.

Beloved I Am, in these letters that I am writing to you each day, Akasha and Asun and many of the Ascended Host are coming forth and teaching us in these end days. Akasha suggests we use this phrase, ‘Beloved I AM within my heart, come forth and unleash, interpret and translate your Perfection into and through my consciousness.’ Do I have an understanding of this? Oh Beloved I AM, let me try because I understand that to have that understanding inside me, it can then unfold outside of me.

I have a consciousness and I have a much greater understanding today of consciousness than I had yesterday. I understand that consciousness is infinite, yet we have not experienced the infinite nature of our consciousness because we, as human beings, fell into a deep dream, a nightmare, and dreamed the tree of knowledge of good and evil. In this, we as creator beings, created something that never existed in our consciousness before we ever came to the Earth.

We, as creator beings, used your Power, Beloved I AM, as creator beings to dream opposites, to dream duality and to dream the experience of fear. I understand now. I am awake. I understand that fear has contracted, limited and placed my consciousness in a box of belief systems fostered by a belief in two powers. In my process of awakening, Beloved I AM, I have discovered that you can offer me the Sacred Fire, and beyond you, I can go to the Great Ones and the angels to get that Sacred Fire to sweep into my being and world to begin, by my command, to take that fear right out of my being and world; right out of my consciousness so that my consciousness can begin to do what it was intended to do – expand and once again be infinite.

Oh Beloved I AM, in these days of resurrection I am having great epiphany. I am having great awakening. I am leaning upon those mighty words, ‘I AM here, I AM there, I AM everywhere’. This ‘I’ that speaks, this is my True Self. This is you speaking and this mighty statement reveals that I AM is consciousness and the only way this mighty statement can be and be fulfilled and experienced is because I AM is Infinite Consciousness; therefore there is no place that your consciousness, that I am an individualization of, is not present. Aahh . . it feels good to awaken and to be aware of these things. Yet Beloved Presence in the letters that I am writing to you each day . .”

And by now this might be 4/5 letters; you only have to write a page but my idea here is that this, being part of the Divine Plan, that you would start writing a letter to the Presence each day and tomorrow you would pick that up and continue your letter. Do you understand? There is an unfoldment here dear hearts.

And so as I continue to write to you my Beloved Presence. I’m really interested in comprehending, in understanding the words that Akasha seems to use with purpose. She is inviting us to acknowledge your Presence but she’s also encouraging us to use certain phrases and terms that are new. Akasha is saying for us to call upon Thy Presence and Power to unleash itself and interpret your Perfection through our consciousness. I’d like to examine this phrase with you, Beloved I AM, to make sure I understand inside me what this means so that it can unfold in my outer life.

I am gaining a greater appreciation now that I really ought not to try so hard to correct things in the outer world; that I ought first to seek to make the change inside me and then allow that change to unfold in the outer world experience. I get this now and I make that commitment more and more that if I wish something to show up in my outer life that I must first plant the seeds of that inside my consciousness. I get that.

But right now, Beloved I Am, I’m really interested in this phrase that Akasha is using, ‘Come forth Beloved I Am and UNLEASH Thy Power and INTERPRET, TRANSLATE your Perfection through my consciousness.’ Beloved I Am, let’s explore this idea.

I know that I am conscious. I am aware that I have a consciousness. I have a facility, a faculty of consciousness that I can use and I know that I use that every day, yet, I have not really allowed that consciousness to go too far and within my consciousness are many things. Within my consciousness is all my thinking, my feeling, every belief that has come my way, everything my sight has ever registered. I understand that even within my consciousness is intellect. I understand through the studies that the intellect can be likened to a library. It is the great storehouse of all information that has come to me through my faculties. What I have seen, what I have read, what I have heard – all that has come to me through the sense faculties of the experience side of life is what stores itself in the intellect and becomes the vast library as a reference point if there is something that I wish to go into that library and refer to for something that is a future decision. So I understand that this is part of my consciousness – intellect.

Now, Beloved I AM, I heard years ago a dictation from Akasha on the Holy Spirit vs. the ego and I understand that these are two activities of consciousness as well. And today, Beloved Presence, I’m going to approach this in the following way. The ego is likened to the male energy and the Holy Spirit is likened to the female energy – Light and Love. I understand, that because of the ‘fall from grace’, that the Holy Spirit, the Love of consciousness, has not been plentiful within my consciousness. Without the Love, without that Spirit, the male energy, the ego is thrown out of balance, thus the term, ‘altered ego’. In my awakening, in my choice for peace, in my remembering to live from the heart and all these wonderful goodies, I trust Beloved Presence, that these wonderful faculties you gave me are now not altered; that the ego is back in balance and the door into my consciousness is open and the Holy Spirit is releasing itself into.

So, Beloved I AM, let me see if I have this right. The role of the ego is to file all data that comes to me from the outer world through the senses – sense of sight, touch, hearing etc. I understand that this is the true role of the ego that all that comes to me through the senses, that you store this in the intellect aspect of consciousness.

Now, what I’m really interested in, Beloved I AM, because I understand for the most part my ego is back into a balanced state and this is a good thing. So as I seek to comprehend this phrase that Akasha says to us these days and I’m realizing there’s a number of other things I must understand first. The phrase that I’m seeking to really comprehend, Beloved I Am, again, is this phrase Akasha asks us to greet you.

“Beloved I AM, you are awake and active within me and I am calling upon you to UNLEASH your Power and Perfection, TRANSLATE, INTERPRET your Perfection through my consciousness.” This is what I am truly interested in interpreting.

So as I continue to write my daily letters to you I am trusting that I am gaining a deeper conversation with you and opening the way for an amazing epiphany and so I have been rethinking and remembering what the intellect – it’s the great storehouse that the ego in its balanced state is to store in the intellect all that is coming through the faculties of sense. I’ve got that right. So what is the next thing perhaps Beloved Presence that I might desire to remember. Aahh yes, the role of the Holy Spirit in consciousness vs. the role of ego. I’ve reviewed the role of the ego in a balanced state so what is the role of the Holy Spirit? (deep breath) I will just pause on this for a moment . .

The Story Of Christ In Tantric Scriptures

Source: http://www.tantrasadhana.com/category/christianity/

The world has known many saints and prophets and as the central figure of Christianity, Jesus Christ is one of the most popular personalities. Who doesn’t know the story of his birth, persecution, death and subsequent resurrection? However, there is a relationship to ancient Tantra to his story, as well. Do you wonder at this? Read on…

From the age of 13 to 29 years, Jesus’ life is mostly unaccounted for by Christian history. There are, in fact, elements of a resurrection or ‘rebirth’ even to this part of his life. Allow a Tantra teacher to explain the message of this obscure fact to you.

The scriptures of Tantra list Jesus as one of the 84000 avatars of the Almighty. An avatar, in Sanskrit, means a divine being sent down to pursue a certain spiritual mission.

Jesus Christ, in fact, belonged to this hierarchy of saints and prophets, sent down by the Almighty to chalk out a specific path of spirituality for the people of the pre-Biblical period ruled by King Herod. He had to chalk this path out from the vast eternal knowledge, also known as the ‘Sanatana Dharma’ in the Tantric Scriptures.

The three wise kings of Bethlehem, or the Magi, knew of his coming, and followed the bright star to the stable where the Virgin Mary gave birth to Jesus. The scriptures of Tantra, however, have a different take on their journey; they tell us that it was the full moon that led the three wise kings to their destination.

According to Tantra, a divine being or a messenger of God always chooses to ‘descend’ on earth at the time of a full moon – an auspicious time for all divine beginnings. Thus the full moon is always a signal to those who know how to read the signs, like the Magi.

Christ’s spiritual awakening began during his childhood, when his purpose on earth dawned on him. He had visions of a land awaiting him … a land that held the promise of vast eternal knowledge or ‘sanatana dharma’ for him. These led him on a long and arduous journey that ended in the land of ‘sanatana dharma’ or India – the birthplace and stronghold of ancient Tantra.

For sixteen years, he lived and studied in India under the tutelage of various teachers who were ready and waiting for him, just as his visions had foretold. It was from them that he learnt all the streams of philosophy and wisdom that would be required for the success of his earthly mission.

Of everything that he learnt, there were a few things that are particularly noteworthy. He learnt a sacred Tantra kriya that enabled him to project his life-force or ‘prana’ onto an inanimate object, an ancient tantra skill that he utilized at his crucifixion to eliminate all consciousness of bodily pain even as his soul lived on. This Tantra kriya is called ‘Kaya Pravesham’ or Projection of Life-Energy onto an Object.

After crucifixion, when his body was left in a cave and found to have disappeared on the third day, even his persecutors had to admit that he was no ordinary being. His resurrection, in fact, is further proof that he had mastered this tantra kriya completely.

The Vedas talk about him as Ishu which became, by popular spelling, Jishu and subsequently Jesus to the world. ‘Ish’ means the Almighty; add ‘u’ to that and the word immediately signifies one who is a part of Him.

It is a known fact among Tantra masters that Jesus Christ spent a large portion of his life in India -at a divine place called Jagannatha Dhama, meaning The House of God. It is God Almighty’s abode on Earth, according to the Vedic scriptures. Jesus, too, believed it to be the earthly abode of his Father in Heaven. This was the very place that taught him the intricacies of Hinduism and all the allied branches of religious and spiritual wisdom.

Interestingly, during this period, he also visited another divine place called Banaras (Varanasi) for advanced learning of some aspects of philosophy and spiritual logic. During that period not a soul – not his father nor his mother – knew where he was… a prerequisite for all saints-in-the-making so that spiritual missions are not disrupted.

Tantra scriptures give an account of Christ’s journey to India and his studies there. Jesus Christ came to India and was instructed to preach Christianity derived from the Eternal Truth or ‘Sanatana Dharma’ from which all religions evolve.

Christianity is what the people of that time period needed, for they belonged to a certain category of spiritual consciousness. They needed something to give them respite from King Herod’s dictatorial reign. Christian spirituality restored their faith in the Divine and helped them fight the repressive and destructive forces of King Herod.

Yet, all that we know of Christ has come to us from the Church. This particular phase of his life (from the age of 13 to 29 years) may be unaccounted for by Christian institutions, but the scriptures of Tantra provide us with richly detailed accounts of it. The earthly lives of the Messengers of God hold many a wondrous secret and a treasure trove of wisdom, but to understand them one must go to the right people.

One must refrain from relying on a few authors who may never have had access to the original Tantra scriptures; most have isolated their personal research from the base source. One must go to the few who have made good use of their access to the original scriptures.
