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.

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!

Vision of time

You know, sometimes you forget that you exist, when the ocean isn’t pouring over you, and all your questions about God and ecstasy and self aren’t washed away into oblivion and you are not just existing naked and fresh in your inquiry, asking questions that have a sail and rudder for navigating the infinite; sometimes you forget you exist because you have to change the oil in the car under the infinite sky before the sun goes down and all the stars pin you to the back of your mind and you shout, “God, I give up! It’s all infinite! It’s all you! Every blessed thing! You can take me now! I think I’m ready! Just let me get the car in the garage, and find my kitty, and hug my lady, and get dinner ready, and I can find a movie for the evening. Maybe then you can have those things too. Maybe when I’m lying down and not paying attention, and my kitty and lady are right there with me, and the movie’s a pretty good one. Maybe then, when I forget.

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.
