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?
Life without any notion of spirit is dreary, people sleepwalking through every experience, thinking and doing what almost everyone else is thinking and doing. So most of the world goes on bordering on chaos and madness. And then there are some who are stirring awake and are realizing that what they do in life counts and that how we treat others matters on deep levels of the heart. And then there are those who feel the world changing around them, not in a historical sense but in a spiritual sense; they feel the presence of the divine and the awesome power of creation in everything that lives and moves, and even in those things that seem inert. They awake to the infinite spaces inside them; they look at their hands and feel God working in every cell and the life blood of the body that makes astonishment possible. And as the beyond settles into the consciousness of these rare human beings, the song of the cosmic drama begins to echo in the ever expanding inner spaces, and suddenly destiny moves in and makes everything real.

After the profound discoveries of the two Invisible Room Initiations, this episode brings a deep integration with one’s undefined self. The world of the invisible room and the manifest universe outside the door take on new significance when seen as a whole. Within the invisible room, new intentions form about whether to take deeper excursions into the quantum cosmos, or to position one’s outer life for receiving an incursion of one’s divine source and center as self within one’s individual life. Actually we will do both, but for now the initial conditions are set up whereby one can consider trading one’s unresolvable karmic life of endless confusions, lifetime after lifetime, for life as a godbeing, filled with the wonder of expressing god-realities, original questions about reality that will have a chance to walk in the world–in your life. A major realization. We will have much opportunity for practicing such a walk in later podcasts, but now we must make a major decision and ask a major question: Hide in the personal story, or walk alive and awake in the world with the whole universe taking note? And, by the way, who decides?
Whether asked from within the invisible room or asked when one is out in the world, the question, “Quo vadis? Where are you going?”, should stop one in one’s tracks. It only takes a few small steps outside the matrix of scientific, social, and religious indoctrinations to know that our true self, the self that self-exists and knows no boundaries, can choose what life it wants to live. What moves the will of an awake person? All human beings can step out of that haze of confusion and fear and take up the bounty of an awakened life. Only when one is awake, can one make choices free of the intimidating influence of a deluded collective consciousness. Where are you going? Ask that question as a being who is astonished to exist in such a marvelous universe and ready to explore the unknown.
The two parts of this episode were recorded a week apart. There is some overlap in the content, but together they are a marvelous introduction to the depth and wonder of the invisible room. When coming into the invisible room for the first time, one is overwhelmed by the inadequacy of language to indicate its reality. Words fail and yet they are useful if infused with the spirit energy within the room. We come into this room and leave our personal lives at the door in order to have a real experience of our divine source and center unclouded by the fears, doubts, and the uncertainties of personal living. When we realize that the invisible room is our own source of guidance for choices made and goodness recognized and beauty seen and felt, the value of having that direct experience becomes deeply understood. How we choose to name this inner reality depends upon how we respond to our experience of it. On the website, there is a list of often used designations for spirit, God, the higher self, etc. The experience of the invisible room (as I refer to it in this podcast), of course, brings no names to bear. Only the mind seeks to give it a name, for it is the mind that seeks to define the world and keep us bound into the indoctrinations that have left human consciousness so constricted that happy, prosperous and evolutionary lives are almost impossible to live.
