What do we think about from day to day, alas, from moment to moment? The younger we are the greater the co-opting of our thoughts by sex, greed, the coveting of things we do not have, and the myriad of intoxicating sensations we crave. In this mode of thinking, we have barely lifted our heads above animal instincts. Two dogs doing it in the parking lot. My body is who I am.

Waves of spiritual knowledge and transcendence rarely make inroads into these streams of thinking. Unfortunately, most human beings, regardless of their age, have yet to rise above this kind of existence. Even those who have aspired to a life of spiritual awakening often slip off to the side and lay down the challenges of higher consciousness in favor of comfortable living, believing that a stress-free life buoyed up by a collection of acceptable beliefs is the goal of human aspiration. These high vibrational sleepwalkers are as much asleep in their complacency as those whose noses are still sniffing the ground.

The stark reality of things is that human beings are not here for sensory gratification or building intellectual interpretations of how things are. From outside the cocoons of our personal living, waves of absolute knowing move through the cosmos as the most impenetrable of mysteries taking with them those awakened souls who have prepared their inner landscapes for the shedding of their thought-cocoons and facing the unknown. Eventually these transcendental waters will inundate the earth bringing to an end the sad story of humanity. Evolution is a tide that does not fall, and only mighty ships will be able to sail these seas. One needs to be awake to have a chance. Building such an ark for transcendence is why we exist. You might have figured it out by now that it’s just you and the divine intelligence at work to prepare for what is to come. Even if you cannot hear it, there is a cosmic clock in the cosmos and it is ticking.

This episode of The Invisible Room Podcast is about getting our priorities straight and checking out designs for transforming a thought stream into an ark suitable for riding the waves of transcendence into the unknown.

In the middle of this recording, an electromagnetic signal disrupted my equipment, the effect of which is a word gap at around the 15-minute point. The hum that came in with it dissipates within a few seconds. A mystery!

No matter where we turn in the media or in school or in church or in the laboratories of pharmaceutical companies, or hospitals that specialize in unpleasant ways to depart this earth, the message is constantly transmitted to us that we will die or fall sick or suffer in some way that says death must be avoided at all costs. To die is to cease to exist. They trade on that belief.

Big corporations make big money on fear of death. Our economy would probably collapse were sickness to go into abeyance and this fear fade away. Our whole collective life as human beings is based on fear and ignorance. We die from fear of death. A useful definition of death might be ignorance of eternal life. Fear of death arises out of a lack of knowledge about how things are structured behind the veils. Life as we live it is based upon our not knowing 99% of what is there. That ignorance we take for granted and call it the real world. We even give it a name–Earth.

While still incarnate in a human body, eternal life is a piece of knowledge that arises out of an inner experience, a transformative contact with a Truth that can be neither defined nor denied. No enlightenment is required for this knowledge, just a brushing up against it. Affirmation of one’s faith in an open and sincere heart will remove all doubt about life being an eternal process within which our hearts and souls move as waves of divine love. Knowing this is life eternal.

I speak about this in greater depth and from many viewpoints in the audio. Cultivating the ability to shift into many different viewpoints is how you sign up. Getting your head out of your ongoing personal struggles for a few moments daily is a way to sign up. Realizing that everything you hear in the collective consciousness is a lie is a way to sign up.

Knowing Truth is a very intimate experience. It’s not something you can tell others about. You just twirl your toe in the sand and look up and know.

If you are not seriously engaged in exploring the questions below about God, Self, The World, The Cosmos, and Consciousness, what are you doing? It’s okay to say because anything you come up with is just what you have to row past before waves of real inquiry wash up against your mind. It takes an open and sincere heart to attract them and an indefatigable intent to take them on. Just row your boat out a short ways from the dock. You will be surprised at what is possible.

Most people are afraid of being on their own. We hold on to personal identities, programmed beliefs and practices, and institutional thought structures because we are afraid of Infinity. The dock is safer than the sea.  It’s safe to approach these questions from inside the mind because whatever answers you come up with remain in the mind. You trade one mental structure for another and call it understanding. “Hi, Honey, I’m home. What’s for dinner?”

Human consciousness is awareness capable of entertaining a sense of self and maintaining a strategy for living in the world. How far such a being is willing to ride out to sea on waves of real questions is one of the deep mysteries of existence.

  1. GOD

What is the Supreme Godhead and how shall I name it? Does this Supreme Godhead have form or is it pure spirit, the unformed Absolute?

  1. SELF

Who am I? What is Self? What does the guru know? What is my soul and how shall I relate to it? How does my soul relate to God? Do I have free will? Does God’s will run everything?

  1. THE WORLD

What is the nature of the world I live in from day to day in time? Objective fact or perception? What drives the activity of the world? What should I do? Why do human beings suffer? What happens at death? What’s it all for? Where does all the energy come from? What is there to live for besides pleasure, power, and wealth? What is love?

  1. THE COSMOS

What is the cosmos? Why is it here? What do cosmic beings do? Are “the gods” real? Why can’t I see them? How do I fit into the big picture? Who or what is running the show? What does it mean to be infinite?

  1. CONSCIOUSNESS

What is consciousness? Is consciousness different from intelligence? What is the mind? How is it different from self? What are “higher states of consciousness?” How does consciousness relate to the Absolute? What is unbounded consciousness?

Even when we have managed to look up from our life stories and acknowledged the divine, have responded to the call from deep within to move forward in alignment with the divine will, there are the day-to-day movements within the karmic flux that are forever threatening to shunt us off into wayward paths of self-gratification and heroic charges into the saga of the collective consciousness as it lumbers along oblivious of what you know and what you are trying to keep alive in your psyche. How to keep that conversation with God in the foreground of your inner landscape? Sacred texts are always about something, but they are also the signal to the great beyond that you are ready to receive wider channels of the divine presence. This Conversation with Krishna wreaks havoc with the thinking mind, which is given an opportunity to bow down. When we finally bow down for keeps, the Lord is fully present in all that we do.

The Invisible Room, your divine Self, is infinitely deep. You and I exist on an infinitesimal wave of its knowing, learning to locate and accept that infinity when it decides that it is time for us to know, one person at a time, through the eons, and hopefully one day the race as a whole. It’s not an easy acknowledgement to make when we have been programmed to see the world through the darkened lens of the rational mind. But here we are.

These four audios were created for deep penetration outside the veils that shelter us from infinity. Our desire to know arises directly out of infinity, and if you want to travel into the deep mystery right off, these instruments will point you in directions you never heard of.

The images and words here exist primarily to delight the soul. There are personal stories, pictures of great beings who have given themselves to humanity for its uplifting, and even the final couple of minutes of a unique 1950s Sci-Fi movie, words that will stay with you if you enter into its consciousness. A good time will be had by all.

The Final Words of the Incredible Shrinking Man

harry

by Harry Palmer

From a January 1989 lecture.

Either after the initiation session in Section III of The Avatar® Course, or somewhere on the Section IV Master Course, a student begins to discover his or her own patterns of creation. It is quite a remarkable discovery and opens a very private and personal door to the templates of one’s own existence.

This is the path that awaits beyond the Avatar materials; it goes beyond Star’s Edge, and there are no maps and no footprints to follow. The final instruction, the last guidepost before the gate, which will appear to some as the blessing of source and to others as the curse of blame, says simply, “YOU are a more fundamental reality than any aspect the world can reflect!”

At this threshold, the uninitiated turn back to the world to “logic for explanations” and seek “reasons why.” But the trained Avatar student will pass beyond any need of instruction and directly experience the inexpressible that gives rise to the patterns that shape his or her existence. This plateau of awareness is quite a relief for the sincere seeker of enlightenment. From it, one sees how the actions and events of his or her life align with a higher consciousness desire to explore life’s potential.

It is with a mixture of amusement and amazement that one recognizes the incredible conservation of effort behind every life’s event and every changing moment to offer the perfect lesson for unfoldment. The struggles with life, the resistances and fixed ideas, are replaced by a willingness to experience and a natural alignment of one’s own efforts with the efforts of a higher universal consciousness.

This is undoubtedly what the great Chinese I CHING refers to as being in harmony with the Tao.

Without reflection or calculation, one acts in perfect harmony with the template of one’s own higher design. At last, there is the feeling that one is where one ought to be! There are no unpaid obligations, no accounts due. It is an end to the struggle between self and the world.

Beyond this is the final fulfillment of the deep, haunting desire to again exist as unity. It is the inseparable that one truly is, the no-boundary space that hosts the circus of life and death. It is the infectious gleam of joy in your own eye reflected in the Avatar Master’s eye. It is source awareness.

YOU are a more fundamental reality than any aspect the world can reflect!

Not from the world, but here, now, from this inexpressible beyond, arise the blueprints that determine one’s role in existence. Using the tools of Avatar one is, of course, free to modify and to continue to explore potentials…

An Avatar Master understands that beyond the lessons he can teach awaits a private and personal world path that only the self-honesty of his student can reveal. He does not burden nor comfort the student with his own or others’ belief systems. He does not delay the student with hidden fees in the form of worship, homage, enforced loyalties to a cause or enforce agreement with a creation. He asks for some form of currency for his service and nothing more.

The Avatar Master equips; the Avatar Master trains; the Avatar Master points; but then, the Avatar Master moves aside.

It is this ability of the Avatar Master to know when at last to step aside that makes the Avatar training so powerfully liberating.
