Slavery mindset run rampant.
This is an age of equality. Whether you are referring to gender or ethnicity, humanity hopes for something better than what our forefathers had put into practice. Compared to today, we only need go back one generation to see a lot of changes for the better have been made. If you are looking for examples, it is not hard to see that there is more respect for females compared to just one generation back, as well as respect for other’s beliefs, and an acceptance for people regardless of the color of their skin. People all over, and in all walks of life, are acting with integrity in a measure that has not been seen in the past when it comes to “race” and how people treat their fellow man. Without going into a debate about alien life on this planet, there is only one race here and that is the human race. Yes, we have a diversity of ethnicity. In spite of our diversity, we have a lot more in common as human beings who are sharing this world that hangs in the heavens. Of course this may only be stating the obvious. What may not be so apparent is the way that we have grown accustomed to being referred to as a “human resource”. This kind of label puts humanity in the same category as cattle, which are also to be just considered as a commodity. It is a condescending label adopted by some that think they are above other human beings. I say “condescending” because it gives the idea that they have a right to rule over others because they have been “given” a position. It is on par with the past generations of people that practiced or supported slavery of another human being.
The practice of slavery seems to have vanished because now people are earning “fair” wages. The mindset however seems to still be alive, but it is not well for others to hold positions that demand others to follow the arbitrary desires of those in such positions. If we are to truly grow as a species, it is important for us to treat everyone as equals at all times and take the time to help one another understand the need for the job or task to be fulfilled, without the threat of punishment or the belittling of someone. Just because it may have worked in the past does not make it correct or worthy of who we are today. When we discover that we cannot take from or harm another without detracting or harming ourselves in equal proportion, we will recognize more of our connection and Oneness. It is important that we continue to recognize our own connection and identity with the ever present Divinity within us.
“You Make All Things New”
The idea of eternity does not exclude our time here at every present moment. We seem to have the idea that eternity is some future tense, but it is beyond time. If you consider that our minds tend to rationalize in a linear way, you may have a hard time grasping that all conditions or states of being exist simultaneously in this “now”. After reframing the way you look at time, then there is only this “now” moment, we should also recognize the fact that we rationalize in a spacial way as well. Things seem to be divided by distance. For us to grasp infinity we need to recognize that everywhere is within us right where we are at. You are your center, and indeed, you may consider that a small space if you are identified with the body that you possess as “you”. The true “You” is One with all things, but our experience here denies this. The Consciousness that you are is infinitely greater!
To be bound by this projection, that is a record of past choices, is the ultimate form of slavery. A vast range of ideas or energies pass through your body, flowing through you constantly though you are barely aware of a small portion of it. However, just like the visible band of light, it can hardly be compared to what you can access and is available. The energies that are being used in this “now” moment are not potential but are existing in a ocean of potential.
Reclaiming What’s Already Yours
Potential is what you truly are and you have been given power over these energies. Potential is formless and void and begins to take shape with your choice, but what choice? Your mental light, or imagination, forms an image of your desire and is a statement of your choice though no words need to be spoken. It is known as the “word”. This potential is silent until your choice has taken a mental form. Let us reveal a great mystery, in part for the following, which will help clarify what has been hidden in these passages.
The 1st “Day” of Creation – Genesis 1:1-5
1 In the beginning when God created the heavens and the earth, 2 the earth was a formless void and darkness covered the face of the deep, while a wind from God swept over the face of the waters. 3 Then God said, “Let there be light”; and there was light. 4 And God saw that the light was good; and God separated the light from the darkness. 5 God called the light Day, and the darkness he called Night. And there was evening and there was morning, the first day.
It is the formation of light, or if you can see the correlation, a formation of an idea. The idea will be nebulous in some aspects until a more solid idea takes form. It will create an environment for the next step or “Day” of creation. The wind of God could be considered as a “Life Principle”, or that which is animating. You are this animating principle. In modern terms we may think of the “Quantum Field” as the “face of the deep”. The other part of this quote is expounded in the paragraph previous that mentioned the “formless void”, refers to your untapped potential .
6 And God said, “Let there be a dome in the midst of the waters, and let it separate the waters from the waters.” 7 So God made the dome and separated the waters that were under the dome from the waters that were above the dome. And it was so. 8 God called the dome Sky. And there was evening and there was morning, the second day. Genesis1:6-8
This second “Day” separates “the waters above from the waters below”. This is the next step in consciousness. Ideas that form in the consciousness are like the open space or sky. This is what we are aware of and focus on that appears as the light of day. The aspects of the idea that are implicate may not be so apparent and may be below the surface of our awareness. This is very much like “day” and “night”. There is nothing wrong with this division; it’s a good thing we are told. We have in modern terms coined the idea of night as the “subconscious”. It is a good thing for us to be able to focus on parts so that we may know them more fully and personally. We consider this, our normal consciousness, to be “subjective”. We can derive useful principles that will help us to realize more of our true power and value. That part comes later though, but it is there in the making or formation of every idea. The principle just may not be in daylight, or in other words, something that you are not aware of consciously yet. These phenomenon we see outside of ourselves is this inner state being projected. It is the visual of the principle that applies to us as a whole, but it is implicated in each idea. Consciousness is in a modern sense is as “spirit”. It is not something physical, but it is The animating principle.
9 And God said, “Let the waters under the sky be gathered together into one place, and let the dry land appear.” And it was so. 10 God called the dry land Earth, and the waters that were gathered together he called Seas. And God saw that it was good. 11 Then God said, “Let the earth put forth vegetation: plants yielding seed, and fruit trees of every kind on earth that bear fruit with the seed in it.” And it was so. 12 The earth brought forth vegetation: plants yielding seed of every kind, and trees of every kind bearing fruit with the seed in it. And God saw that it was good. 13 And there was evening and there was morning, the third day. Genesis 1:9-13
This third “Day” or stage, or state, in the development of our desire, idea, or choice where they become more solid or rigid in its form. The idea has form and takes on a particular flavor. It is like vegetation that will bear fruit after it’s own kind. The thoughts and ideas that you think are now more concrete and hold the principles that are contained within the forming vision. They come out of the dry land. They seem to appear from beneath the soil, this is because we have not recognized the principles in our conscious thinking yet. The seeds, or the simple essence in its distilled form, are hidden until one “eats”. Unfortunately, many are stuck in this “Day” or stage of development because they eat of their thoughts but do not see the connection to what they have planted. They have experienced the taste but have not learned the idea’s principle. It has passed through “the drought”. They will have to “eat” again because it was not fully digested and passed through them without a full or true reflection of its meaning.
The fourth “Day”.
14 And God said, “Let there be lights in the dome of the sky to separate the day from the night; and let them be for signs and for seasons and for days and years, 15 and let them be lights in the dome of the sky to give light upon the earth.” And it was so. 16 God made the two great lights—the greater light to rule the day and the lesser light to rule the night—and the stars. 17 God set them in the dome of the sky to give light upon the earth, 18 to rule over the day and over the night, and to separate the light from the darkness. And God saw that it was good. 19 And there was evening and there was morning, the fourth day. Genesis 1:14-19
This is an awareness of our conscious thinking and the implications are now being illuminated from out of the darkness. They help us to remember the things that we once thought about and how they affected our situations. It is a relaxed state of rest which you usually reflect on the things you have experienced. Conscious thought is the greater light that rules the “day”, which is our reasoning. And, the lesser light represents the things once seen but that we did not illuminate with understanding, or were unaware of to various degrees. We recognize this lesser light as it arises as intuitions or hunches. Remember we are speaking of the inner world of our consciousness. This understanding brings us to the next stage or “Day” of creation.
The fifth “Day”…
20 And God said, “Let the waters bring forth swarms of living creatures, and let birds fly above the earth across the dome of the sky.” 21 So God created the great sea monsters and every living creature that moves, of every kind, with which the waters swarm, and every winged bird of every kind. And God saw that it was good. 22 God blessed them, saying, “Be fruitful and multiply and fill the waters in the seas, and let birds multiply on the earth.” 23 And there was evening and there was morning, the fifth day. Genesis 1:20-23
Potential needs to have an experience and wants an infinite way to express itself, just as everyone does not want to be put in a position that is confining. We desire to be “fruitful” and to expand our thinking, multiply our experiences. Out of our conscious thinking comes the feelings of the “earth”. The animals or beasts represent the “nature” of our feelings. This is why the commands were given to not “eat” of those natures that would be detrimental to our thinking and interactions. It was not to be a literal command. They were considered unclean or unhealthy to consume, or they may consume our life with the unhealthy feeling associated with their nature. The bird represents spirit, an attitude or a thought that we give free reign to, but we are warned about having vain imaginings because our “word” carries power and will have a consequence that goes with it.
The 6th “Day”
26 Then God said, “Let us make humankind in our image, according to our likeness; and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the birds of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the wild animals of the earth, and over every creeping thing that creeps upon the earth.” 27 So God created humankind in his image, in the image of God he created them; male and female he created them. 28 God blessed them, and God said to them, “Be fruitful and multiply, and fill the earth and subdue it; and have dominion over the fish of the sea and over the birds of the air and over every living thing that moves upon the earth.” 29 God said, “See, I have given you every plant yielding seed that is upon the face of all the earth, and every tree with seed in its fruit; you shall have them for food. 30 And to every beast of the earth, and to every bird of the air, and to everything that creeps on the earth, everything that has the breath of life, I have given every green plant for food.” And it was so. 31 God saw everything that he had made, and indeed, it was very good. And there was evening and there was morning, the sixth day. Genesis 1: 26-31
All these previous states give rise to the next stage of consciousness within man. The thinking of man was with “God” in the beginning but his experiences are formed by his spirit or “consciousness”, it is the making of the man or the outward expression of the images and feelings of one’s consciousness into circumstances to be experienced in the world of form. This is why we have missed its meaning for so long, we have mistaken the world of form for reality when it merely reflects the choices we ourselves have made. The real power is our true self or Oneness with the “I am” that is the first cause. These words are not for flesh and blood. They are your spiritual word that makes the image into a human being. We are creating our choices because of the unconditional love of the true and only One that is good. This was done so that the image that took the form of man can return home as an undivided individual, God in the form of man. Mankind must recognize that they are within a projection that we call a body. Ultimately, we must recognize the true spiritual image so that we can identify with this Oneness. There is no need to fear a loss of your identity as you are really so much more. You may keep whatever you choose. The question is… what do you really value? You have dominion over all that is within you. Every aspect is in your control once you realize that you control the image. Imagine better and take charge over your animal. Do not let the animal, or your feelings, be your master. They are to serve you, not rule over you. What is a lion, but wrath not held in check that will devour those that you were commanded to love as yourself. The lion need not be feared when love is what you think about, when the well-being of others is as important as your own. This is the sixth “Day” that leads to the seventh, a period of rest. It is one where the desire is fulfilled and there is nothing to fear because you have seen the image before it was made manifest and you felt the truth of its reality. Before you have asked… “I am” has answered. Oneness saw the truth of the image you hold and gathers in ways that you are not aware of. The seen is made of things unseen. What forms planets from a void? It is written “You are Gods”. This is true freedom and your words will not return to you void. Whether you believe it or not, you are One with the Creator.
What will you choose to create with your “word” now that you are empowered to use it? Let this be a labor of love in every moment and feel the joy of being free to create your heaven on earth. Imagine that you can, and what would “that” look and feel like?
