What to do when it touches you? What to think? When everything you know collapses in the light of a presence that you will never be able to explain or ever deny. Not a time for petitioning for the betterment of your personal existence. My God! My personal existence! Then it retreats only to come back and see if its silence and your chattering mind can get along. And pretty soon when it arrives, you can only think beatific thoughts about life, existence, love, death and the grand design that you are a part of.

Eventually you see the truth of it all without a complex, emotionally charged, intellectual explanation about God, heaven and hell, sins, death and resurrection, clouding over the undefined core of your being. Day by day, week by week, year by year, it becomes you and you become it so that the vision of your particular life is a vision of the whole cosmos. And you shake your head in amazement that you never saw this before and that you were buried in the mud and mire of the torturous illusions that keep the human race churned up as if it is preparing itself for self-destruction.

As you look around now, you know not to worry, that all of it is arises moment by moment out of the infinite and that you are just a piece of that knowing that has woken up with a brain, a body, hands and legs and a landscape to walk on, air to breathe, and people to know and love. What next, you ask? Now that the dream is banished and you walk forever on the shores of the unknown?

You know, we are just stuck with thick, clunky words for describing the world we live in. When we want to reference the inner dimensions of our existence, we still have only the big, clunky words with which to write, like the ones I am using now. Still, words such as these can bring us into deeper contact with the inner workings of human existence and how our experience of life can bring us into more intimate contact with the divine. I try to do that. I use familiar words in a particular context, and I take a particular angle on the movement of my consciousness into the divine, and I lay out the path that the divine takes in moving into my existence. It only takes a human willingness for the divine dance to take place. This episode of The Invisible Room Podcast continues that dance with clunky words but an open and sincere heart. Profound things happen in this episode. Doors open. The heart trembles with new awakenings. It’s simple really. Just listening to the words takes us into places where words cannot travel. No matter. The mystery is in charge.

It’s the big one, of course, even though most people pass through their days minding the personal store. The moment to moment things count for much as long as the deeper waves of being splash upon the personal shore now and then. But whatever the reason one denies, postpones, or conjures up false deities of knowledge, technological wizardry, or fanciful stories about what is real and true from ancient times that no amount of history is going to ground into absolute fact, it doesn’t go away. Does it? So there you are. What about God? If you’ve got something to say, let’s hear it!

Whatever the mind has to offer, spirit has more. Whatever our life experiences have to offer, spirit has more. Whatever past experiences we remember, spirit has more. Outside the thinking mind, even as we wander across the world, spirit is everything, and we are the bounty of its exploration of itself. Just a taste of the nectar of that bounty is enough to send us to the mountain top crying, “Here I am! I am ready to know!” Or deep into the meditative heart, on the eternal quest to know the source of one’s existence and the love that is the first clue of divinity.

An Inventory for Accessing the Mysterious Present

I have stood alone for years with what you are about to read. As an inventory, it is not meant to engage your mind in an intellectual colloquy about the nature of reality or what happens after we leave this world. Everything is here and now and meant solely to lead you to the last item.

Every day I am astonished by my personal existence.

 

I accept that the life I am living can never be fulfilled.

 

I am ready to drop the veil of earthplanet plane and accept as my Self the illusion-free reality of my godbeing core.

 

I surrender my life story as an illusion of the veil.

 

I surrender love as an illusion of the veil.

 

I ask my divine self to remove the veils that hide the spiritual universe from my vision.

 

I realize that I and the world of my experience are a module of perception, one among many dream worlds that collectively comprise earthplanet plane.

 

My module of perception along with all other modules of perception that constitute earthplanet plane are a dream vision rising out of a cosmic lord on another plane of existence.

 

What questions do you expect to be answered when you pass from this world?

 

I am ready to step outside of everything I know.

 

No matter where I stand, I am always here.

 

I can access my identity as a godbeing traveler of the quantum cosmos.

 

The stars and planets turn around me by an intent that is not my own; I think and feel and act through the grace of that same intent. 

 

I have stood alone and awake to the great beyond.

 

I have felt the searing gaze of infinity penetrate my mind.

 

I have felt the rapture of the heart’s divine song.

 

I know that I live and die in one divine breath.

 

I remember the ancient ones, who created the passageways of travel through which I will move as a liberated soul into the great beyond.

 

I remember gathering with enlightened souls on the shores of the unknown ready to move out together into the great beyond.

 

What do you expect to find when you pass from this world?

 

Are you ready to choose your manner of passage out of earthplanet plane?

 

Do either of these options for passage into the great beyond feel familiar to you? Eternal life in the absolute spirit, or many lifetimes in a created cosmos of form as it lives and dies in the void of the original nothing?

 

Does your heart feel bound to the lord of this cosmos?

 

What did you expect to find when you pass from this world?

 

Can you feel the deep mystery passing through you right now?

 

On a subplane of your planetary field, human spirits are gathering to learn the art of quantum travel. Many have come and are now exploring deep mysteries with the ancient masters through limited voyages out into the beyond and very highly structured incarnations into earthplanet plane. As daunting as quantum travel is to these novice travelers, nothing can abuse them of their intent. Be at peace with this truth. It always is.

We have taken it for granted that the world is what we have learned in school, and at home, and in churches and temples, and in the backrooms where we plotted schemes to achieve, win the day and overcome the fear that binds us to the rules of the powers that be when all around and inside and beyond the thinking mind spirit eternally is. Who or what keeps us bound into the view of the world that is destroying us? Is self-destruction part of the divine plan, and do we even believe in a divine plan at times other than when we need solace from something horrible that has happened to us?

In this episode, listeners have a chance to assess their thinking about spirit, to realize that spirit is not in our thoughts or theologies. It is existence itself. And what to do with that? Tread the path of a soul asserting one’s virtues over one’s vices; or going the way of spirit with the inner lion lying down with the lambs and allowing the divine to enter through absolute acceptance of all that is?

What does it sound like when eternity whispers intimately into our ear? Can we separate ourselves enough from the cacaphony of our thinking and worldly living to hear the wisp of knowing that turns us inexorably toward spirit? When the head bows its acceptance, vistas of reality open up before us, whether we end up standing on a mountain top surveying the vast landscape of infinite possibilities for existing or we engage in the simplest of activities, like sweeping the veranda. If you know who you are, it is all very simple. Just a whisper for it all to become undone.
