Ascension of Consciousness

Emotional congestion thwarts love, brooding and snarling, it lives in the shadows of fear, vengeance and betrayal. This towering babel of infractions of love, finds its foundations in the souls of men, its walls in his heart, and its smeared windows in his confused mind.

Attachment to form is the architect of pain. This multi-storey self trembling under the seismic activity of a fraught imagination and eventually crumbles beneath its igneous layer of egotism.

Life is governed by inexorable conditions. The world springs from the nature of our soul. In its pure state, the soul is fluid and transient. In its unnatural state, it is in the stasis of self, buttressed by beliefs and expectation, providing the soundtrack and narration for its masquerade as it parades through the apparent world. Desire is the float that carries the self aloft but fear halts its procession.

Fear is the harbinger that warns the soul of moral decline. Fear demands the penalty for transgressions are paid. Progress of the soul is not by linear procession, but by ascension of state. The egoist self lives in ignorance of this from human existence to human existence until the monolith of pain becomes too cumbersome to bear. The conditions of egoist thought and action lie within the soul. The ego subscribes to birth and death, it is governed by time. The soul is governed by the Law of eternal Being. The soul must pay for infractions caused by the wilful ego upon the whole. It is aided in this by the Law of Cause & Effect.

The world mirrors the soul’s state of consciousness. The ego is ignorant of this and projects its faults onto others. The truth living in the soul, known or unknown, is of unity. All life is one. Therefore, all humans are shareholders of transgressions, blame and vice. We are here because we are liable in making amends for our past actions that have imparted upon the whole. When the soul becomes aware of its reason for being in human form, its ascension of state accelerates and its moral nature overthrows the false master.

However, this metamorphosis is not without suffering. The mirror of truth is an unwelcome intruder to the ego, while it is the window of freedom for the soul. The inlet of vice must exit through the outlet of suffering. Denial of feeling the effect of wrongdoings eventually overpowers the capricious ego and turns the finger of the projectionist firmly inward. The ascension of the soul marks the decline of ego. The ego’s surrender marks the maturity of the soul indicating its maturity and awareness of its union with all life. Then the star seed of human consciousness shines brightly amongst the firmament of men so that the performance can match his promise.

Connect to Joy

Future projection can be mentally and physically exhausting. A constant pull to achieve more, leaves you feeling as if there are not enough hours in the day. This is particularly the case if you are bombarded with messages and status symbols from the world around you. These messages give advice on how to look good, what you should wear, how to spend your money and what you need to achieve happiness.

 When a person is unsure about their choices, they are heavily influenced by the world they inhabit to provide answers. Personal choices such as relationships must live up to a list of criteria. A relationship is acceptable if it lives up to the expectation of society. A feeling of discontent arises when a relationship breaks down and blame is directed at the other person for not conforming to the ideal that society dictates.

 If you are not sure what brings joy and contentment, you can be easily led into other people’s perception of happiness. This leaves you dependent on outside influences to answer any questions about relationships and other matters in your life. If you are out of touch with who you really are, it is difficult to have a fulfilling life.

To tune into your true requirements for a happy fulfilling life experience, be still and ask for the truth to be revealed from higher self. We are all unique and we have diverse ways to express feelings of joy. What works for one person may not work for another. You may feel exhilaration when sky diving, but to someone who doesn’t like heights, it would be a scary experience.

 Allow each person to be as they are, to act in a manner they wish, and to see the world with their own eyes. Life experience teaches you what you enjoy and what you don’t enjoy. Focus on the feeling an experience gives you. If it makes you scared or upset, leave it alone, if it makes you joyful, stay with it. Feeling determines the quality of your experiences. You may participate in an activity because it is recommended by a friend or magazine article, but you find it unfulfilling. Trust your feeling body, it is your feedback mechanism from the universal field. Sometimes we focus on an upcoming event and how wonderful it will be. When the time arrives, the feeling is an anti-climax. Trying to project feeling unto a future event uses vast amounts of energy so that the event can never live up to the promise. 

How you feel now is crucial to what you are attracting into your life. Focus on the feeling within, let go of stories and dramas playing out over and over in your mind. Feel the feeling behind them. Feel the pain, grief or fear that continually attracts unwanted experiences. Feelings of fear focus on creating unhappy experiences. Feelings of joy attracts joyful experiences.

The Fairy Bride

The fairy bride picked the lock

And tiptoed through the summer wood

She gave no mind to life behind

Or shadows thrown by bad or good


She gave no mind to wrong or right

Or screeching call of owls at night

She listened for the haunting cries

That called her from her blushing bud


Ferns unfurl a tickled fronds

Laughing at her slightest brush

Dewdrops glisten with green eyes

Meadows sway with lightest hush


A captive note arrests her breath

Dreamers weave intricate maze

Lithe and quick she shines the light

Illuminating shadow glades


She gives no mind to life and limb

Or captor’s hiss from deep within

Her purity will seize the thread

Dangling loose from dreamer’s web


She spins a silver spool of light

To catch the rays of stars at night

Now innocence can spread its wings

Making haste for freedom flight


She gives no mind to where they fly

Or how tall grasses lift her high

She clicks the lock and in she glides

All nature hails the fairy bride

Emotional Intelligence

Emotional maturity is necessary if you are to be part of a loving relationship based on mutuality rather than dependency. If the feelings are mutual, the input is equal. The initial step towards emotional maturity is honesty. Do you love like a child needing attention, praise and reassurance? Do you have a desperate need to hold onto the other person for your emotional security? Do you constantly end relationships because you find faults with the other person? Do you crave the excitement of a new relationship?

Connect with the universal field of awareness to know the truth. The truth helps you move forward. Accept your tendencies in a relationship without judgement or blame. Ask for truth to be revealed in a loving, compassionate way.

If you are easily manipulated in a relationship, or if you tend to be the one who is in control, take time out to develop emotional maturity. Remember, the source of love is within you, not in the relationship. Love comes from you and is expressed in relation to others.

Emotional immaturity is searching for love outside you.

Emotional maturity comes from realising you are the source of love.

If you are at the end of a relationship, or in a separation period, use the space wisely. Time out from being part of a couple allows you to focus on meeting your own needs. Set your intention to connect to your true source of power. Keep repeating your intention every day until you begin to open to the extraordinary power of higher self.

Concentrate on your breathing patterns. Watch the breath as it moves in and out. Breathing happens, you don’t need to force it. It is natural to breathe. Also, it is natural to love. You don’t need to force it or strive for it. Focus on your heart. Feel a warm glow igniting your heart centre. Allow it to expand throughout your whole body and energy field. Practising this on a regular basis lifts your energy vibration and connects you to people and situations that are in harmony with love.

The habitual pattern to look for love on the outside takes time to change. You may find you alternate between sourcing love within yourself, to needing validation and praise from others. Allow whatever frequency you are on to be as it is. Accept what you are feeling now and keep your intention strong for self-acceptance.

When you are accustomed to needing another person for love, whether this is a partner, a parent or a friend, it is magnificent to feel love’s pure energy arising within. It is then you realise the truth, you are love. You are not dependent on others to feel love. Open to this powerful energy that is your life force and allow it to permeate every part of you. Let the overflow expand into the hearts of those around you.

Be the love you wish to receive.

When we seek to separate anything from the whole it sets in motion the Law of Cause & Effect. Dualism underpins the condition of man, and both ends of the pole are always seeking to balance. If something tips the balance at one end there must be compensation at the other end to restore equilibrium.

The soul of the world is whole and refuses to be fragmented. Acting through the subjective self, man seeks pleasure of a thing without the pain. Contrivance to sever the sensual from the moral is trying to dodge the effect after the cause. It is trying to get one end of the pole without the other. The Law of Cause & Effect steadily counteracts any impunity. The Law is infallible. The uninitiated may say this Law does not touch them because they have no knowledge of such things. Conscious or unconscious the Law works for everyone alike. If the lie is on the lips the condition is in the soul. The subjective self is mortal but soul energy is immortal and pays the cost for infraction of the Law during human experience.

When we act from Being, or the whole, we add value to the world. When we act in self-interest we subtract from the world. Conscience balances the scales of right and wrong. Justice balances the scales of good and evil. Where there is subtraction at one end, there must be addition at the other.

Being, the whole and source of Life, is a perfect equation. There is no compensation or comparative required in the absolute of Being.

The soul must carry the burden of responsibility for inequality in the man. Too much thinking, must be balanced by feeling & emotions. Turbulent thought is fuelled by turbulent emotion. Fear and desire is the see-saw of emotional imbalance. Craving and aversion are poles of agitated thinking.

Fear is the emotional equivalent of aversion; desire is the emotional equivalent of craving. Weakness of mind allows emotion to overpower and cause imbalance, thinking becomes distorted by desire causing obsessive thought about the subject. Weakness in the feeling body, allows mental activity to reduce its immense power to a battery to fuel thinking. The stronger the desire, the more it impacts upon the mind, interfering in the natural flow. Desire produces thoughts of craving and needing something or someone to be happy. There are always two ends in polar thinking, at one end is desire, at the other end is fear. Fear weighs down desire by producing thoughts of aversion, lack, or worry causing agitation.

The effect of dualism in man is caused by attachment to form. This results in the need to identify with thought form as ‘who I am’ and the associated likes and dislikes.

The world one experiences are the effect created by the scales of emotion and thought. The world exists to allow true Being to become conscious. It is a tough exterior to protect the seed of consciousness until it is ready to comply with universal law. The world created through emotion and thought reflects the soul’s state of consciousness.

There can be no premature ripening or cracking of the shell until the soul’s energy is a vibratory match for universal source energy.

The universe is represented in every one of its particles. It is the fluid consciousness of Being, the awareness of all phenomena that comes and goes. The material particle has the appearance of separateness but the consciousness consists of the whole. In other words, matter has a myriad of variations but the energy pervading all form is one unit. This energy is indivisible. Therefore, for a particle to achieve a separate identity, it must move its consciousness into that which gives energy the appearance of form. That which allows energy to pass into appearance is the mind.

Only a universal particle with free will can impose its consciousness unto the mind. Consciousness in the mind slows the vibration of energy and it becomes a stream of sound. The consciousness of the particle then has two distinct states of Being, one awareness of noise, the other is Being’s association with noise.

It is association that begets belief. Belief in noise in the mind causes identification. This noise then becomes self, and self-identification begins. The organising principle of the mind, intelligence, is used to make sense of noise. Thus noise is organised into thought. The primary thought is self or I, other thoughts are added to it by association. The self identifies with outer appearance as species, and also gender of species. The more thoughts added to the self, the denser it becomes until finally the original state of consciousness is usurped by the noisy self in the mind. Mental activity associates with physical form. The function of the mind is to allow energy to manifest as form. Mental activity identified with the thought form of me or I, adds layers of thinking to the self to make things ‘mine’. Thus begins a molecular structure of subject (self) and object (form).

Consciousness is energy aware of Being. Losing this awareness of Being by association with mental self, causes a subjective state. In this state, energy associates with a belief that it is separate from its complete Being. It formulates ideas according to its association with matter. Species, race, colour, gender, creed, nationality, along with individual tastes run according to one’s belief in a separate self.

Without the objectivity of conscious awareness, the subjective self organised by thought, annexes energy from the whole, and like air in a room that has been locked up too long, the energy becomes stale and musty. Only when the windows and doors are flung open between mind and consciousness can the energy liberated from the chamber of self breathe the truth of unity.

Subjective energy proceeds from the mind made self. Conscious energy proceeds from the whole. The former state associates with doing, the latter state is being.

Subjective self applies force to the mind to manifest or impress upon it what it wishes to have in the world of form. This is unity having an experience of separation.

Conscious energy allows the mind to organise and manifest according to universal intelligence. This is unity having an experience of variety.

The state of subjective self leads to extreme individualism and energy is used to power ideas that run contrary to the whole. In this, the energy becomes erratic and highly charged causing extreme disturbance in the mind, resulting in neurotic thinking. Annexed energy fuelling the separate self applies pressure to be released from the mind. The process of release is disassociation with form. The energy purifies by detaching from all ideas of self and I. It is through feelings and emotion that energy sheds its heavy armour of thought. Only fluid energy can pass through the mind and evaporate into original consciousness.

As free flowing energy, mind and spirit (Being) run parallel to each other. Each reflects the other and represents the other. This dual energy charge is the constituent of the universe. And it is for every one of its particles to be and be aware of this force within.

Subjective self

The world is produced by mind. The universal Mind is the intelligence that holds the earth and nature in balance. The world we perceive through our outer mind, or free will, depends on the lens we look through, for it is this lens which alters and shapes our experience in the world of form. The world represents the mind, and the mind reflects the consciousness of the soul, or Being. The Being is union, the mind gives variety and form to it. The form Being takes in this manifestation process is a particle of the universe. It is the presence of Being which seamlessly interweaves all particles in the whole. Thus it is with nature.  Man is a particle, and it is awareness of Being that keeps him connected to his greater universal whole. It is the Being and not the thought that is identical. Men wilfully use their mind to think about this or that. Thinking generally streams from the ‘I’ or self.

Self is the principle thought in the mind which derives from Being’s energy forced upon the mind. The resulting self is Being trapped in its own creation. The self is no more than fusion of ideas and thoughts resulting from attachment and association to matter. The only difference between men is their principle of association and attachment that arises from their place, race, family and learning.

The Being in some people is still conscious enough to know the voice in the head, that identifies itself as ‘’I’ or ‘me’, is a subjective state. The number of people waking up to this state is increasing all the time, however there are still more people completely identified with self, they have very little control over their thoughts because Being is in a sleeping state of consciousness.

Involuntary thought in a person leads to stress, anxiety, neurosis and psychosis. If these thoughts proceed unchecked action follows, resulting in crimes against fellow men. It is human laws, religion and conscience that keeps the self in check. Those souls who are aware of subjective self, trust the universal Laws to guide thought and action. The Law of Cause & Effect is inherent in all universal particles.

Men created artificial restraints such as government, society and judicial systems to control the destructive actions that result from extreme anarchistic self. Government reflects the mood and conscience of a nation. As the people of the nation matures so does its politics. History shows many nations who revolted against corrupt or despotic leaders in order to gain civil rights and a voice in government. Who we choose to represent us in affairs of state reflects how we choose to reflect our Being in matter. If we rage against our politicians’ methods and motives, we are in effect making a tirade against our subjective self and the restrictions imposed upon Being. The world reflects the self’s treatment of Being. The ‘I’ experiences life according to its relationship to Being and the universal whole.

Blame is a method employed by the subjective self to deflect responsibility. Blame and guilt are bedfellows. Guilt rouses blame so that it can sleep without feeling shame and remorse. Where there is blame, there is lack of responsibility. Responsibility is the ability to respond, or to feel, the effect that has been caused by thought and action stemming from subjective self.

Breaking the Law of Cause & Effect leads to an increased agitation in Being, this is reflected in the world one experiences. How we speak and act towards our fellow citizens is sufficient advertisement of the traits of self. Self-expression in an aware Being will spring from moral nature and adherence to universal laws. Self-expression in a sleeping consciousness will betray weakness that arises from involuntary thought.

Wilful force is the cause of falsity and misrepresents the true nature of Being. As in the singular so it is in the collective. Politicians can also misrepresent their constituents, governments their electorate. In our conscious state, we would not vote for a politician who dupes us, nor would we re-elect a government that oppresses our civil rights and freedom. The outer revolt of nations in history has become the inner revolt of consciousness aimed to topple the misrepresentative self.

The solar system, the nature of earth, the moon and tides do not require artificial laws. When Being is established as the true representative of man, it shall be reflected in acts of fairness and equality.

All the political revolts and civil right movements in the history of humanity stems from the soul of man’s aim to overthrow his dictatorial self. The advances of the soul are made by ascension of state. Political history is a record of man’s inner and outer evolution of consciousness in a linear time frame. The true aim of men is to establish moral victory over the tyrannical rule of separateness.
