Love and Human Unity

There are many qualities and powers of life that will need to be involved in the building of Human Unity upon Earth.  Yet, ultimately the presence of  a true Human Unity will emerge through one key Divine Power that lies at the Essence of humanity and life:

Love

Human Unity will exist only through humanity’s capacity to Love each other totally and completely, without placing conditions upon our ability to love in any situation or with any human being, without asking “why” or wondering “how,” without needing any justifications.

A One Love which loves every human as a part of oneself, as a part of one same Mind, Life-Force, Spirit, Body, Soul, and Divine Existence.

A Perfect and Harmonious Love which offers ItSelf in a pure, unique manner and way that is right for each individual situation, each relationship, each person, which inspires in each Being the perfect action and movement to make in the exact right moment.

A Free Love which loves humanity whether one receives love in return or not, which offers love and infuses love into all Life around it.

An Expressive Love which gives ItSelf to all humanity as its own manifestation of Beauty.

An Infinite Love which loves all humanity’s diversity and gives humans the capacity to Identify ourselves with every human and all that exists as an intimate part of ourselves, our Soul-Being which contains All.

A Courageous Love which loves also the darkest side of human nature, the ignorant and the false and the painful, even as we seek to transform it.

A True Love which reveals the intimate union of our minds as the One Mind; a Love which reveals the intimate union of our life-force as the One Vital; a Love which reveals the intimate union of our material bodies, our infinite Cells, as the One Body; a Love which reveals the intimate union of our individual souls as the One Soul existent in All.

A Powerful Love which surrenders our entire personal and collective Existence – our identities, our personalities, our desires and preferences and wishes, our thoughts, ideas, feelings, sensations, and actions, our very breath and vision, our total perception and experience of Reality; surrendering ourselves to That which is beyond humanity, to that Great Something Else which inspires the very Evolution and Unfolding of every moment, every atom and cell and Soul, every movement of Life.

An Intimate Love which binds atoms together to create form, a Love which binds cells together to create Life,  a Love that vibrates our existence in unison as the One Same Force of Consciousness, Force of Life, Force of Substance, Force of Love Itself – the Divine in ItSelf Embodied as Humanity and all of Existence.

A Nurturing Love which embraces the Universe as a Whole while caressing every particle and each human as a vibration and manifestation of Its own Divine Substance of Love.

A Consuming Love which dissolves and transforms all perception or experience of division and separation, which awakens the intimate Oneness that dwells within and between every cell, every mind, every heart, every body and Soul.

A Vast Love which sees all as Love, which feels all as Love, which knows all as Love.  A Love which is capable of loving each human as That Love Supreme, for We Are That Love.  There is nothing but That Love.

A Love which simply Is All Humanity at its core,

and which, through humanity and Life, expresses Love

as the Beauty of  an Infinitely and Eternally Unfolding Divine Unity.

The Psychology of Matter, the Consciousness of Cells

As science now knows, all of Matter is essentially vibrations.  Vibrating energy.  We can also say that all of life, not simply Matter, is vibrations.  Our thoughts, our feelings, our sensations, our visions, our total human experience is a complex web of a vast Energy which is vibrating itself into different forms, even subtle forms which our minds can’t always grasp, which are not quite the “stable” forms of the physical world that we are so familiar and accustomed with.  Matter is simply a more dense vibration, manifesting the forms that it is informed to create from higher vibrations which descend into the reality and awaken new experiences and new realities.  When things change in our reality, it basically means that one vibration or collection of vibrations have replaced another vibration.  This may sound quite impersonal when reflecting upon how someone in life goes through a very profound change which transforms their very nature or character.  These words Energy and Vibrations don’t seem to convey the real living, breathing, personal aspect which is life.  But if we can get past the use of these simple words and reflect upon the fact that Energy contains Consciousness, that Energy IS Consciousness in its dynamic, living aspect which builds life itself and animates it, breathes through it, within it, then we can begin to see more clearly.  We are all this great dynamic, expansive Consciousness which is both personal and impersonal at the same time.  It builds Itself in the forces and material reality of Life, it breathes and moves and feels and becomes.  Matter itself is alive!  It is Conscious, for there would be no possibility for our own human consciousness to exist were it not involved in the depths of Matter as a potentiality, as something awaiting the right moment to manifest, or as something which is moving and shaping Matter from behind the scenes.  We are the result of a supreme Consciousness which is present in the heart of Matter, and which even now is still seeking to manifest its vast infinity of existence.  In order for us to truly begin to understand the true nature of Matter, we will have to undergo a profound transformation of our perceptions, of our way of perceiving everything, our reality.  We will have to awaken an entirely new psychological poise within us, a psychology of pure Matter, free of the mental and vital constraints which have limited our experience of our physical reality, including our bodily reality.  But what is this psychology of Matter?  Where is it?  How to awaken ourselves into it?  We must first be willing to leave behind the old ways, the old mental understandings and perceptions, our old ‘eyes’, in order to open ourselves up to the possibility of a new psychological awareness and experience.  A new Consciousness, essentially.  There is in the depths of Matter, in the secret cave of our own bodies, the key to this new perception and experience of Matter.  The cells, the tiny entities of our bodies animating our existence, breathe with a truth to another way of living.  Behind the veils which cover the cells’ true nature, there lies a new psychological experience, a psychological experience which is MATERIAL in its nature, and which will transform our total perception of our human and spiritual realities. 

The cellular world is full of vibrations.  It IS vibrations, vibrating Consciousness-Force.  Every cell is a vibrating CellPainting1mass of Consciousness in formation.  Indeed, the cells are Consciousness Information.  They are the play of Consciousness in its dynamic, living quality, expressing and manifesting the infinite and eternal arrangements of forces which are everywhere, in everything, and being infused into the physical reality from behind a hidden spiritual reality which is the animating power of all of life.  This spiritual reality too is Consciousness.  It is Consciousness much closer to the origin of things, the Supreme Consciousness which is the foundation of everything, for there is nothing which is not this Supreme Consciousness.  The cells are the intimate children of this Supreme Consciousness, images which are vibrating their own unique truth at the core of their nature.  Yet these cells are also very fragile in our reality.  They are surrendered servers to the Divine, and to us as well.  They are formations of something which is Divine in its essence, yet forced to manifest this Divinity in the midst of everything which is not yet Divine, which reflects the Divine’s opposite.  There is a great truth to this necessity of Opposition, an Opposition which ultimately is also Divine, as it plays a great role in the unfolding, the evolving, reality of Matter in its field of existence.  This field is one of battles which are at once battles of unconsciousness within the vaster Field of an Absolute Consciousness.  The oppositions force the progressive movement of life forward towards manifesting ever-more of life’s infinite nature.  It moves from the unconsciousness towards Consciousness by way of opposing forces pushing life more and more towards its ultimate Truth, into newer realities which are in essence vaster awakenings of Consciousness.  We live in this mixture of forces, this play of ignorance and consciousness, of life seeking its true nature in the midst of confusion and darkness and falsehood.  Our cells, because they are such sincere and absolute servers of life, will embody anything and everything that life brings to it.  As humans, we are like little vibrating magnets for all the forces of life, both ignorant/unconscious forces as well as those forces of Light and Truth and Consciousness.  We are drowning in all these vibrating forces, we are animated by these forces.  They play us as puppets since we are truly unaware of their movements and realities.  And because we are manifesting these forces, because we choose to allow ourselves to be controlled, more or less, by these forces, our cells too become their slaves.  Our cells are always listening.  They are ALWAYS listening.  To us.  To our thoughts about ourselves and life, to our feelings about ourselves and life, to our entire experiential perception of ourselves, others, the world, life.  The cells have the capacity to embody anything that we can imagine.  This is their power, their truth.  Yet because of the vast and complex play of forces around us and within us in life, they end up manifesting those vibrations, those qualities, those aspects of life which are most dominant.  For the cells are not simply individual, but collective.  We influence our own cells primarily, and yet the cells also vibrate their experience across the field of the cellular world, which is interconnected and intra-connected, which communicates everything in an instant.  Our power to influence the nature of our cells and our bodies is immense, especially as we begin to become more and more conscious of the vast fields of the material reality which we live and breathe within.  We are a concentrated mass of cells vibrating in our own unique way, but also interconnected with and influenced by everything else, by all the other vibrations of life.  Our cells take in all of this, everything we experience.  They take it all in and vibrate with it, manifest it or store it, or both.  The cells can hold on to vibrations with intensity – they can even imprison themselves within vibrations which are destructive.  They are contagious little beings, and can spread whatever vibration they are instructed to spread by the secret Will which is at the core of their existence, the hidden Guide which gives the breath of Life to them.  The cells ultimately follow the dictates of the Divine within them, for they are intimately, inherently, innately connected to the Divine Consciousness in their core.  Yet just as the Divine has given humanity its freedom to choose and manifest according to free will, the cells are in a way instructed to follow this human free will and choice to a large degree.  By being unconscious of our cellular reality and the vibrations of our own cells, we are essentially unconscious of the play of forces that we are throwing upon our cells, forcing upon our cells, and our cells in turn manifest our bodies and our whole physical world experience according to our ignorance, within a field of uncontrolled forces of destruction, separation, falsehoods, and even death. 

The call of the cells right now is for us to become conscious of their existence, of their consciousness.  Our cells have their own consciousness which perceives physical reality in an entirely different way than what our mental perception does.  They are awakening more and more to the truth of their own nature, even freeing themselves from the imprisoning milieu that we have kept them trapped in for millennia.  They want to be truly free!  Not simply for themselves but for us as well, and mostly for the Divine.  For they seek only to manifest the Divine Consciousness, they seek only to serve and to BECOME the Divine.  Their vibrating mass tells their story, their many stories, which are OUR stories, for we are integral, intimate players in their truth and their reality.  We only must become more aware of their world, their ways, their truths.  When we can become open to experiencing what vibrates in the depths of our own cells, and see what they are at their roots; when we become conscious of the living vibrations of Force which is what our bodies and cells are, and become capable of surrendering these vibrations so that they may be transformed, replaced by  . . .  Something Else, then we will find ourselves in a vaster freedom of life and creation.  A creative life which allows a True Matter, a Pure Cellular Reality, to manifest what humans can not yet even imagine or comprehend (because comprehension is still of the dividing Mind) – a Divine Life in a Supreme Embodying Substance.

Unity as Healing Power

There is really only one reason for the problems of the world, the disharmony and suffering of humanity.  It is division.  We live life with a constant perception of everything being separate from everything else, which includes our own perception of ourselves.  In all areas of life this perception of separation has masked itself as the sole truth of our experience of reality.  We have perceived for ages that countries are separate from other countries, that one race of people is separate from other races of people; we perceive that we are separate from nature, that our bodies are separate from other bodies, that our minds are separate from other minds, that our spirit and Soul is separate from other spirits and Souls; we perceive that mind is separate from body, that Soul is separate from body, that all of matter is separate pieces without any real connection; we perceive that people are separate from people, that spirit and heaven are separate from matter and Earth; we perceive that we are separate from God, from the Source, from Truth, and most importantly we perceive that we are separate from our own unique and powerful truth of Self within us. 

We have been born into this sense of separation, we have been educated and ‘experienced into it’ in countless ways throughout our lives, brainwashed by the unknowing past which masquerades itself as a habitual knowledge.  But all of it is simply not true.  It is an illusion we keep accepting.  This separation, this perception that everything is divided, is the falsehood which rules our whole consciousness and experience of our reality.  But it is not real.  This division is like a veil covering over another sense, another consciousness, of our reality.  It is the consciousness of Unity.

As a world we are beginning to experience this sense of Unity more and more in many ways.  Science is finding that matter is not separate pieces, but one vast whole, that there is an interdependence within vlcsnap-68394the eco-system within which we live and are only a part; and we experience the unity of people as they experience the similarities between cultures which seem so different, or even in those moments where tragedies force us to come together for a common purpose.  Yet most of our experiences of this profound and vast Unity, which is the foundation of everything, are limited to somewhat superficial movements or symbolic representations. While these are still powerful and real expressions of this Unity, there is a vaster sense of Unity which underlies our entire material and spiritual existence, and which is something which can be experienced dynamically, concretely, in the depths of one’s own Soul, one’s own being.  It is this inner sense, this inner Truth, of Unity which lives at the heart of our own self-existence that allows us to connect with all the life around us in deeper and more meaningful ways.  When we become more conscious of this within us, we are better able to engage and to heal all the difficulties we encounter in our everyday lives.  We begin to see how all is connected and that there is meaning in everything.

But how to awaken this direct experience of Unity within us?  Where does this experience of a true inner and outer Unity exist?  We must know the source of the division first to be able to truly understand how we can reach a real, tangible, living Unity within ourselves.  If we look at this problem of Division closely, we will see that its source is essentially the mind.  We must, first, differentiate between mind and consciousness.  Consciousness is something vast which is present in everything, everywhere, which is the very source of all that exists.  It could be equated with God itself, the Supreme, the Divine vision which lives and breathes in everything, as everything.  Mind is but a tool of this Consciousness, one layer or aspect of the Divine which is choosing to experience this part of Itself through us as mental beings.  Mind is what divides everything into pieces because that is its very function, its essential work, the reason for its existence.  Its division is the only way for it to relate things, to compare and discern them, to attempt to know them.  Yet its knowledge of things is inevitably limited by its inherent separation.  It sees and knows only through division – through dual vision, a sense of things as two, separate.  It cannot identify itself with the things it seeks to know, for it is essentially the agent of division. Again, this is the stamp of its role which it plays in existence, and it cannot get away from itself and its limited purpose as simply a temporary tool of consciousness, which is to be only a beginning mode of perception for humans along the pathway of evolution of consciousness towards greater Consciousness.  Mind must have division to perceive.

But pure Consciousness is something entirely free of this limiting perception of division, as its very nature is Unity.  There is behind the illusion of mind nothing but Unity, nothing but a spiritual and material Whole which breathes and moves together in unison. To get behind the illusion of mind is the challenge, for it is in the Silence of the mind that we are able to find this deeper sense of Unity, of true Consciousness.  When we are able to silence our minds, to empty ourselves of all the mind’s activities which act as a shield against the perception of what lies beyond it, we begin to open ourselves, to free ourselves, to experience the real foundation of our lives, our consciousness, our reality.  We can begin to sense something else entering us or awakening within us slowly, this feeling of oneness, of connectedness, even of harmony.  When we truly begin to feel this Unity within ourselves as the truth of our own existence, when it begins to grow and spread within all the various parts of our complex being, our consciousness, our thoughts, feelings, and actions, then a true healing power begins to also be present within us.  This is in fact what healing really is, the awakening of a greater Unity and Harmony of our entire individual and collective nature, of all the parts of our being within us, as well as all the parts of our collective human relationships which create our everyday reality.  With a perception of Unity comes the power to harmonize what is out of balance within us, to see clearly what connects us to our true Source of being and what is opposing this, to see what is out of place and thus have the power to work towards changing it.  As each of us creates this sense of Unity in ourselves slowly, we not only have an effect upon our own mental, emotional, physical and spiritual healing and well-being, but we are healing the vast interrelationship of all humanity and the Earth.  We heal when we grow, when we transform ourselves, when we become who and what we really are behind all the illusions that we accept about ourselves without question.  And Unity is the foundation for this power to heal.

The Awakening

Featured

The Earth is awakening.  Humanity is awakening. We are not awakening simply to a new mental experience and knowledge of life, nor are we simply awakening to a new spiritual paradigm and existence.  We are awakening even in the very material substance of our bodies.  Matter itself is awakening.  It is awakening from a billion-years trance in which it has been imprisoned.  It is awakening from a mental stranglehold which has held it captive in its web-like snare, limited it from being what Matter purely is when it is free of Mind.  Matter is not dead.  It never was.  It only appears to be to our limited perceptiveness of life.  Our minds could not grasp the experience of the smallest particles of life for much of our human history, and so our experience has been dominated by the superficial, the surface appearances and movements which are absorbing and consuming, confusing and addicting.  With our minds we have sought to understand matter and its ways, its life and energies.  But it is not with our minds that we can see the depths of Matter’s truths, nor the truth of the human spirit.  We have not truly peered within ourselves with our inner sense, in the complete silence of the mind and emotions and sensations, and, because of this fact, we – including all the religions, spiritualities, and yogas of the history of the world – have not been able to discover that Matter contains its own greater truth which is inherently connected to the truth of all of life. 

Most of the religious and spiritual philosophies have put forth visions or messages about the realization of a “heaven on Earth,” but most have strangely adopted beliefs which suggest that heaven is beyond Earth and that the goal of spiritual progress is to ultimately renounce the world and life and be free of it all, to escape to some paradise beyond.  This is why all have ultimately failed in their attempts to change the world, for they cannot change a world that they see as sinful and ignorant, as illusion and false, when they also believe in escapism.  Escapism shall change nothing.  Matter is not evil, though it is dominated now by our mental ignorance, our human consciousness of falsehood.  Yet this is not our truth, nor the ultimate truth of Matter itself.  This is the great Mask which is hiding the real Face of Truth.  The true Face of Matter.  Matter as we experience it is not true Matter, but Matter enslaved by humanity’s limited consciousness, a consciousness of Mind, and of uncontrolled vital force.  We experience Matter according to our inner state of being, a state of being which dominates even the substance of our own bodies.  It is too simplistic to say that it is our everyday thinking mind which dictates our body’s experience, though thought and the “ordinary mind” does have its influence.  It is, rather, our entire Consciousness which is made up of various aspects and qualities and functions and planes of being which creates the experience of our everyday lives.  We are composed of mental energies, as well as vital energies and forces (Life-Force), and then of course our physical natures, the substance of our bodies which are the foundation of our experience.  The vital and mental planes of our being also within themselves have various aspects special to their nature, and all are bound up and interconnected within the physical embodiment (both individually and collectively).  Ultimately all of these aspects of our being – mental, vital, physical – are integrated within one united whole of a greater Spiritual existence, a Spirit-Substance which is, in truth, the Divine Itself in its phenomenal manifestation.  All of life, including Matter, is the supreme manifestation of a living Divine Consciousness, a Supreme Being, God in the most all-encompassing sense. 

Our world today is undergoing a shift in its perception of life and its perception of matter.  This shift will be seen as an immense leap into the future of the human experience.  We are slowly beginning to realize that this extreme distinction between spirit and matter, between God and Life, which we have held in most of our belief systems throughout human history is not true.  We are awakening to both the understanding that Matter is simply the manifestation of Spirit-Energy, that Matter is the living, breathing, evolving substance of God, of the Divine Consciousness which animates all of life.  There is no opposition!  Matter is form of Spirit, the living embodiment of this thing we call God.  Of course, by this we do not mean that this present manifestation of matter in our current reality and our experience of it is the absolute and total and perfect embodiment of the Divine.  What this means is that all of Matter reflects some aspect of this Divine Consciousness.  Currently matter is immersed in a consciousness of falsehood which we could very easily call unconsciousness or Ignorance as known by many in the Eastern spiritual traditions.  Yet while matter is controlled and transfixed in this unconsciousness there is in the heart of Matter an involved and potential Divine Consciousness which is behind all of it, urging the creation towards its Truth, its essential Source which is this Divine Consciousness.  This hidden Divinity in the Rock, in Matter, slowly works and evolves out of Its own Spirit Substance more of Itself, more and more of Its Divine Existence and Nature, building and expanding and growing the creation until it becomes prepared and capable of manifesting the true Fullness of the Divine Consciousness and its infinite and eternal splendors which lie beyond our present experience of life.  Again, I will repeat that it is IN MATTER where one can find the Divine Presence and Truth, and that Matter can help us to realize this.  This is where we can discover that the cells, the most humble and sincere and all-serving Cells of Life, are the supreme emissaries of God, of the Divine Consciousness.

The cells are not simply part of evolution, the cells ARE evolution.  It is absolutely true that we evolve spiritually, mentally, vitally, and psychically, but it is in our bodies, IN MATTER, where all of this evolution truly effects and transforms life, infusing new material realities into our existence.  Whatever spiritual evolution or growth occurs within ourselves, it is only when it is brought down to the level of Matter, through all the layers and levels of our being and consciousness, and into the cellular consciousness of our bodies, that evolution can materialize the Divine Truth in the physical plane of existence.  As long as we stay in our mental or vital “heavens,” the physical, material plane of life on Earth stays the same and undergoes no real transformation.  It is in the cells where the battle of the past, the present, and the Future is taking place.
