Turning Points and Transformations: Descend then Transcend

“DESCEND THEN TRANSCEND”

Announcer: You are listening to Divine Realization Radio. Where you will discover the reality and essence of your presence. With programs brought to you by Project New Humanity Communications.

Announcer: You are listening to Turning Points and Transformations with your host, Bryan Rice. Will today be the day that you have your breakthrough in consciousness? It is time to be uplifted.

Bryan: Hello, this is Bryan Rice, you were just listening to “Revolution of Tears”. One of my songs from the album “Fractured and Delivered”. This episode is a rebroadcast from 2012 episode.

Bryan: Hello. I’m welcoming you in to the program and, wishing you a Happy New Year, the most happiest of New Year’s and prosperous New Year’s. We’re hoping that, that you had a blessed Christmas season and things have calmed down. Calmed down and settled down now. And you can root yourself into those New Year’s resolutions. So I’m Bryan Rice from the Order of the Friends of Jeshua. That’s o, f, j. and I’m here today with today’s episode. It is called “Descend, Then Transcend.” That’s “Descend, Then Transcend.”

Bryan: Now, At first, listen. You might wonder why the two are juxtaposed together. Well, there’s a big reason for that, a journey through consciousness (from) out of subconsciousness and unconsciousness to conscious awareness and presence. Peace and total awareness starts with work in the subconscious, starts with work in what we are unaware of. Starts with shadow work. All individuation work in the words of Carl Jung begins with working with and acknowledging things that you have repressed down into the subterranean abyss, the shadow. . . and the shadow actually leads you to gold in Jungian terms.

Bryan: Shadow has much to reveal to you about your true nature and also what you are not. So when we go down, when we mean descend, what we mean is going down into the places that we’re less inclined to go. It means taking a trip, a journey down into the ocean of the unconscious, to the subconscious, and whether you’re speaking in yogic terminology or in spiritual terms, universal, spiritual terms or Jungian terms or even or even mythical terms. We’re all talking about the same thing. We have to acknowledge what is dark. We have to bring light to the darkness. We have to be our own inner guru and bring things that are in the darkness into the light. That is the role of the inner teacher. Whether you call it the Holy Spirit, the Indwelling Life, the Divine Indwelling Presence. It’s all the same thing.

Bryan: We are a source of illumination within and without. We are light bearers and we’re gifted with born with the light presence your light from the light continuum, from the truth-reality continuum, and

Turning Points and Transformations: Descend then Transcend

we receive throughout our lives at different points, different turning points – different stages in the evolutionary process we receive illumination and light transmissions, gifts from the divine for us too, in our neurology and our biology to make gains in awareness, gains in consciousness to progress. We live in a world, we live in a humanity based upon progress. I’m a progressive Christian, myself, progressive, Christian, Progressive Catholic, priest, not Roman, but I acknowledge that movement of progressive spirituality is always a movement towards that awareness towards expansiveness, toward superconsciousness and many of the traditions in yoga speak of superconsciousness. Swami Kriyananda speaks a great deal about it. Paramahansa Yogananda spoke a great deal about it. Great living masters, like Paramahansa Yogananda, who lived in the 20th century and his direct disciple, Swami Kriyananda, they speak of this and you can do that work. Do the work of moving from subconsciousness to superconsciousness or intuitive, intuitive awareness by reading the book, “Awaken to Superconsciousness”, but we’re going to talk about philosophy of Kundalini Yoga and how that is a model for transcendence, but it doesn’t dismiss, the role Chakras or the lower energy centers in the process of coming to one’s awareness or coming to one’s bliss. Bliss is reciprocal. It depends upon a foundation. A strong foundation rooted in the here and now.

Bryan: Any promise of bliss outside of the present moment is mere fancy. Any promise of illumination outside of present moment awareness is not mere illumination but it’s a mere fragment of it. We need to be rooted in the here and now totally in the here and now. Totally present, totally aware, totally conscious, and how do we do that? As we said at the beginning, we have to go down, we have to do depth work, which is soul work. That’s what Father Richard Rohr would talk about, the Catholic Friar, and he’s spoken a great deal of that and as men’s work, men’s spirituality has taught, we have to do spirit work which is the transcending work or the ascension work, but we also have to do the descending work which is the soul work. Depth work. That’s where we get the words depth psychology from. Carl Jung speaks of it because I mentioned before and Carl Jung had a lot to do and a lot to say about mythology and how mythologies come to be in the journey out of the unconscious, out of the unconscious into the conscious world. Coming to know the self, the true self, that sense of I that is not separated from the universal. That sense of I that is vast. It’s big, it’s large, it’s expansive.

Bryan: And so when considering the whole journey that we are to go on, especially when we start a spiritual journey, we might have an initial experience of enlightenment or illumination or light transmission. . . but it always involves going deeper and it always involves following a progression into a period called the dark night of the soul. A test for the ego.

Bryan: In Kundalini Yoga, we call that Shakti Pod. Shaktipat in other

Turning Points and Transformations: Descend then Transcend

traditions means a blessing or a diksha or an initiation from a guru to disciple raising up one’s Kundalini into cosmic consciousness. But when we speak of it in that term and in the context of Kundalini Yoga, we call it the test of the ego – the dark night of the soul and we’ve all been there, especially those of us on the spiritual journey. It’s a necessary period of dryness or seeming separation from light. We might not feel the same sense of exaltation that we felt at the beginning of the journey. At the beginning of the illumination process. And what we have to do is we have to endure. We have to hang on and cling to the cloak of God, to the God Consciousness, the unified field of love, the unified field of all of constant and consistent awareness.

Bryan: How do we remain aware during the dark period when we need to really shine light upon some of the dark areas or the unconscious, the subconscious areas of our lives? Well, it takes endurance. It takes fortitude, it takes courage, takes courage to do depth of work, and we say depth work, we go down in the energetic anatomy down into the centers of the root of the sacral of the manipura or the navel into the lower triangle as it’s called Kundalini Yoga. The lower triangle contains seeds of the very seeds of enlightenment, a foundation. Roots under which we can build and grow our tree of consciousness, our tree of life.

Bryan: A tree needs strong roots to grow tall, grow high, to grow outward in expansion, and the same as so with our spiritual nature, with our spiritual journey or spiritual unfolding in having a meditative practice, prayerful practice such as centering prayer or contemplation. Our good efforts to keep us moving in a direction of progress, of transcendence.

Bryan: So what do we mean by going down into the subterranean? Well we hear of in the book of Revelation, an abyss, a watery abyss and a beast rising up from it. And mine, and many other people’s interpretation is beast is not the antichrist that’s going to come somewhere in the future, but it’s a metaphysical, an esoteric symbol of that very nature that we have to come to grips with, to kill, metaphorically kill or to individuate into our being. We have to recognize the beastial part of ourself, the instinctive part of ourself. We can’t ignore that we have instincts. We can’t ignore that we have an animal nature that we have very much in common with animals. Our brains are an evolutionary masterpiece, and our brains, contain the whole history of evolution in it. Now you can believe in evolution and still be a spiritual person. You can believe in evolution and still be religious person if you want to use that word, and I’m not encouraging you to become or to be or to say that you are religious.

Bryan: It connotes many things for many people, sometimes negative. We’re in an era of new thought and we use different words. It’s a

Turning Points and Transformations: Descend then Transcend

paradigm shift. We’re now in the Aquarian age. We’re not in the Piscean age anymore. So doing depth work. Going down. That’s kind of essence of the Paschal mystery as spoken of in Christianity, specifically in the Roman Catholic world, we have to go down into the tomb, into the darkness, into the earth. Then we can be resurrected. Then we can transcend or ascend. The pattern was set in place, by the Christ or by the person, Jeshua with the Christed nature. Speaking of Jesus, the only sign he said he would give to his people, was the sign of Jonah. . . and if you know the story of Jonah, it was Jonah was swallowed by a big whale and spit up later. Jeshua was talking about going down into the earth and then raising up as human consciousness to divine consciousness, raising up, rising out of the depths, rising out at the abyss, rising from the tomb. When we hit blocks on our journey, when we run into walls. . . These things are not just obstacles, but hurdles to clear. We have to learn how to move through them to break through these blockages to the awareness of Love’s Presence.

Bryan: Part of the work, in the metaphysical anatomy in the Chakras, in the metaphysical energetic anatomy is to work through blockages, to allow spirit to rise, and there’s a science behind it that involves our life force and our eliminative energy called Apana, our life force, called Prana. Apana becomes heated. A spark is created in our naval point and that spark that is heated. . . that psychic heat descends down to the root Chakra and awakens the Kundalini in one. “He who raises his Kundalini fast approaches Christhood”, said Paramahansa Yogananda. Our goal in life is to live an enlightened life, to live a blissful life, to be happy, to be healthy, to be holy. That’s it. That’s the essence. That’s the formula. How do we get there? We have to clear the subconscious. We have to remove the garbage. Take out the trash as Yogi Bhajan would talk about and spoken about in his teachings. Maybe that’s one reason Kundalini Yoga isn’t as popular as it could be because it involves doing subconscious work in comparison to Hatha Yoga.

Bryan: Now it’s more acceptable for people like myself to be doing Kundalini Yoga or work with Kundalini energy on the progressive paths of spirituality. The more inclusive paths of spirituality. We don’t see one path being exclusive of another. Yoga is not a religion. Kundalini Yoga is not a religion. It’s not a system of a cult of the occult. It’s a system of excellence. A system that brings about the caliber of human being, the identity that makes an impact in this world. It’s a technology. A sacred one.

Bryan: If you’re familiar with the program Rebirthing by Yogi Bhajan, you know that we need to remove the clutter from the mind. Much of that clutter is the overflow of the subconscious. There’s many things in many exercises and sets called kriyas that help us to deal with the subconscious debris and we’re going to continue to have to deal with it our whole entire lives until we’re free of our Karma, but we are

Turning Points and Transformations: Descend then Transcend

always, shoving things down into the depths. We’ve repressed many things. It might be in an experience or a situation where it’s not the wisest thing to express rage, so we repress it and it festers and it grows down in the depths, deep down within, and we’re going to have to deal with it sooner or later. Most likely sooner.

Bryan: We can’t ignore the dark. There would be no light without darkness. It’s a necessary opposite, it’s a necessary polarity. Even in worldviews, in our paradigm of non-duality, of oneness, we still have to recognize that we live in maya or that we live in a world opposites. That seems to be founded upon duality, so that means there are things such as opposites, such as light and dark, hot and cold, good and bad, good and evil. And I liked the writings of Swami Kriyananda from the Kriya Yoga lineage. He talks a lot about with “lila”, but Paramahansa Yogananda, his guru, talked about, which is this divine play, cosmic drama. The drama was only interesting when you have a hero and also a villain.

Bryan: The villain helps to elucidate the positive characteristics of the hero. You don’t have drama. You don’t have an interesting concept without a nemesis, without a shadow. Where is in our own lives, our nemesis. It’s not usually an external people, although people can come to us and be seemingly villain like I mean this is the meaning of love your enemies and like in the saying that says, keep your friends close, but keep your enemies closer. Reason for that is it takes many, many times revealed to you. Your dark side. Because you come to project onto this figure where these figures, or these people or these situations. They enabled us to grow. They enable us to see past ultimately the blocks in awareness to keep us in unconsciousness.

Bryan: It’s why it’s good to marry, to have someone to be with in your life. They play the role of the revealer. They reveal things to you that come from the shadow, the density of the shadow. Without person to mirror that to you, it’s very easy to live in denial or disassociation of your dark qualities are dark aspects, but having someone there to mirror those things to you or to point out things to you that are less than loving helps us to grow.

Bryan: Everything contains its opposite. A paradox is a vision of opposites. Two seeming contradictory truths. Life is a paradox. Work on the spiritual journey is a paradox. Saying that we have to descend then transcend is a paradox. They seem contradictory. Why go down to only go to rise up? Why can’t we just rise up? With a pattern that the Christ, the person of Jeshua who is the light beer, a light bearer, one among many such such such such others as the Buddha, Krishna, both avatars divine incarnations.

Bryan: All avatars have something individually unique to reveal to the world about the God consciousness, the universal God field, universal God awareness . . . And what Jeshua Jesus revealed through his

Turning Points and Transformations: Descend then Transcend

personhood and divine Self. What he said, is we are immortal. We can’t die. That we have to go down into the tomb. The life process is a cycle of continually dying to the false self. That grain of wheat that must die in order for us rise above into the heights of awareness, the heights of consciousness, the bliss nectar of total awareness of superconscious, bliss… intuition, explosive insight. We gain insight from doing depth work. We gain insights from paying attention, not in an unbalanced way, but acknowledging the darkness within us, acknowledging that we have weeds growing in us next to our wheat of consciousness, aware of presence. The parable of the weeds and wheat really means when Jeshua Jesus said that we should let the weeds grow along with the wheat, otherwise we’ll pull out the wheat with the weeds is because many times our darkness, the qualities that we tend to repress or the qualities of that inhibit us or else the very qualities that enable us to evolve. Life is a process of involution and evolution as Tau Malachi of the Sophian Gnostic tradition, would speak about. It’s a back and forth process.

Bryan: Our angels are demons are demons are angels. It’s another way of saying, the same thing, a blessing or curse or curses . . .things that seem to hold us down or hold us back are the very things that can help us rise up. And transcend means to rise above. How do we begin this work? It’s more than we can cover in the show, but if anything, if I can instill for you the idea that this process of clearing the subconscious, it’s like finding gold in a gold rush. . . because when we recognize these patterns, these pain patterns, things that have limited us, we can begin to grow and to blossom, to flourish. Many times in depth psychology the shadow is said to reveal gold to you… that by recognizing the shadow you are enabled to expand ever more. At this point, I want to point out that it’s all God. EVERYTHING. Even the dark encounters or you might say, God is not darkness, but what I am saying is that all things come from God. God has no opposite. You know, all things are used to return to God. Even the image of the lake of fire comes from God. It’s a purifying fire, not something to damn you to hell for all eternity. . . a purifying fire. Though I reject the idea that there is a place exactly in the likeness of purgatory, I do accept the idea that we all have to go through a purging process until we can return to God consciousness. We have to burn our Karma.

Bryan: We have to reap what we sow. Sometimes it involved suffering and a lot of people don’t like to hear that. We don’t have to suffer, but we do because of our choices that we make, what we do and what we choose, what we think, what we act out. Well, we always have a choice. I’m not saying you shouldn’t live down in the depths or live through subconsciousness. Live in subconsciousness or unconsciousness, no, just recognize it. Recognize it for what it is. It’s something that’s there to help you grow, to help you evolve, to help you become more loving. . . . So we have to do the depth work. Without it we’re shallow people or hollow. But we really, in essence, carry around,

Turning Points and Transformations: Descend then Transcend

great density around with us and our personhood. When we don’t do our depth work, it’s already a dense experience being in the human body. It’s only exacerbated when we choose to live in unawareness, so what do we do. . . Again, it takes courage. There’s ways that we can deal with that shadow. . . things such as active imagination. We can dialogue with it, give a voice to a certain quality, give it an anthropomorphic quality to it treated it as a personage in dialogue with that, your value, your consciousness to shine through and shed light on what is being revealed. Give a voice to your darkness. It’s called shadow work. Folks. It’s not fun, but it’s necessary,

Bryan: So, if something is rising up within you that you don’t like, that you’re doing a meditative practice and that you realize you feel like you’re in a bad mood. It’s your subconscious clearing. It’s definitely a phenomenon that many people have experienced in the spiritual journey. That’s why it’s good to have a companion on the journey to share these things with because you start by releasing a lot of debris. Then you begin to think, oh my gosh, am I these things? Am I these qualities? But you’re not, you need someone to show you that you’re beyond that. You’re more expansive that you’re more aware. I want to thank you for joining me today. I wish you many blessings. Come back and join us next week on Turning Points and Transformations. Have a prosperous, happy, healthy, holy New Year. Peace. Joy to you.

CHRIST REALIZATION YOGA – DAY 44

DAY 44

 

Through Gnosis-Knowing and Divine Realization, contact with the Light of Father-Mother God, the Immortal Indwelling, is possible. This contact and awareness is the powerful Light Source that allows me to see the True Reality of Love right now.

 

 

Darkness tries to impede seeing. I cannot manufacture the Light of God Presence that shines bright in me now. I need but realize His/Her Real Presence. The Christ is that Light. Through Radical Right Sight, I realize that miracles are made possible by connecting with the Radiance within my mind. If I isolate my self through wrong-minded thinking, I will not see the Light of Christ that I am at my center.

 

For there to be Radical Right Sight, I need to accept that Christ Light can flash across my mind in my third eye, the gateway to intuitive seeing and gnosis-knowing. That light is not outside of me. The ability to see is not found outside of me. The Christ is within. The Christ is who I was created to be. Christ Vision is always possible when I am in contact with the Light of Father-Mother God, the Supernal Parent-Source. The Love and Light that makes seeing possible will bring about the realization of my True Self as being in Communion with the Supernal Parent.

 

Today, I dedicate myself to quieting my mind and trying to reach within to my center, the Blessed Holy Spirit and Christ Mind. I am still trying to discipline my mind and till the soil to plant new seeds for Radical Right Sight. I am a Cosmic Mass unfolding at the altar of peace, joy, and happiness. With confidence, I invite other minds to join me at the Feast of Self-Remembering. Partaking of the Bread of Infinite Sustenance and the Ambrosial Wine-Light alive in the metaphysical spine. I allow Kundalini Christed Desire-Energy to awaken and rise on the altar of my metaphysical spine, the highway to Self and God-Realization.

 

I transform the density I think I am by offering it up freely to be blessed by the Light of the Supernal Parent Source within the crown chakra. The light descends through the other main energy vortexes and illumines every nadi, nerve channel and plexi, that creates a Supreme Feeling of Oneness with the All while inhabiting a body. This transfiguration allows me to see my True Nature as a Son/Daughter of God, whom I am in Union and Communion with the One God Mind appearing to be many.
I will contemplate today’s mantra with Love, recite it, chant it, live and breathe it at least three times, for a duration of three to five minutes, and longer only if no struggle or strain is induced in centering on this prayer for today.

 

Today, I leave behind old worn out and false thinking. I now believe and see differently than I did before. It is time to step outside and witness the folly of the egoic-ahamkar, by observing its meaningless, fearful ways. I will remind myself that I can and will escape darkness through the openness to Inner Transfiguration and recognition of the Christ Light Presence placed upon my inner altar. It’s Radiance is Knowable and capable of restoring me from my blindness caused by illusions. Therefore, I relax, and release the seeds of karma stored within my chakras, the seeds that are linked to darkness. I let the Christ Light shine away and magnetically bless all tamasic-darkening dense vibrations that limit my seeing. I choose wisely, in favor of the Transfiguration of the Inner Christ, the reflected nature of Father-Mother, Brahman Immortal. I see with metaphysical eyes, transcending sensory body-based seeing.

CHRIST REALIZATION YOGA – DAY 29

DAY 29

The Supreme, Transcendent and Immanent, Indestructible, Expansive, and All-Loving Brahman Father-Mother God Mind is omnipresent and in everything that I see with my Spiritual Christ Sight. The vision afforded me by the reflected Son and Daughter nature of the Divine, Cosmic Father-Mother Source allows me to see beyond images appearing as form that I superimpose through avidya-illusion and shadow-dance projecting, to the One Light and Love that uplifts me into Higher Awareness.

 

The True Self, the Christ, the Atman, the Awakened One, fed by the nectar of shakti life-essence sees Brahman God Mind everywhere, while the body’s physical eyes see only shadows of the Light that lies beyond them. What I want to see, I will see. When I want to perceive through fear, I will see avidya-illusions of terror. Fear everywhere, fearing everything, and fearing everyone. When I want to see only Love, I will see Brahman God Mind everywhere blessing all things through the vision of Love. I want only Transmissions of Light, Bliss, and Peace and I will see and experience these when I open my anahata heart and ajna chakras to receive the magnetism and shakti that awakens the fiery desire energy of Kundalini within my astral, metaphysical mind.

 

Kundalini, the evolutionary Mother energy within me, travels upward, Godward, when I am reborn from above, giving me Radical Right Sight, using the spiritual eye to discern my creations in Heaven from the illusions and appearances that I have made.  The Father’s fiery light ignites the fire within, in my True Self Nature, illuminating the highways of travel through this lifetime. It shines a light upon the darkness and hypnotic maya that the egoic-ahamkar mind has tried to create as a rebellion against Brahman God Mind. Forms appear as dense. But through Radical Right (True) Perception, I can see beyond them to Love that made me. The Love that is omnipresent and omnipotent.

 

Surely Brahman God Mind, The Father-Mother Presence is not in a tree, but the life force that animates the form of the tree came from a creative source in me and in everyone who perceives a given tree. That life force that animates form came from Brahman God Mind because we are co-creators with that very Divine and Primal Origin. God Mind does not create trees, but the life-essence within me, being of God Mind, is the same as that Spiritual Desire Energy. Since my essence is in God Mind and God Mind’s essence is in me, that of which I have created has some of that very life-essence that makes a given form possible. Shakti emanates from the One Creative Center from which all Real Energy and Spirit Life came from. All emanations of Brahman Father-Mother are radiated outward from the Primal Center, in the circumference of everywhere as One Unified Quantum Field of Potential and Spirit. What I have manifested as appearances in form are not God’s creations when made with a separate will by my individual separate mind. But the love that animates mass, known as the adamantine particles, comes from the common origin of Ultimate Love. The Wholeness of God Mind is a Hologram. And all parts are contained within the whole and the whole is contained in all parts. My True Source shines with radiance behind the images I have made, giving what I think I see, it’s only function and purpose in this world, for them to be used to awaken and liberate others.

 

So, for six two minute contemplative sittings today I will recite today’s central mantra while looking on various objects and subjects in my field of vision. As I scan what is around me, I will say:

 

“The Supreme, Transcendent and Immanent, Indestructible, Expansive, and All-Loving Brahman Father-Mother God Mind is omnipresent and in that tree. Where it is but not what it is. So, where I’m seeing that tree, God Mind is there hidden behind the image of that tree as energy potential, though He-She transcends that energy. I am not that tree. But the essence that made that tree is the essence of Creative Life and Love Energy from which all things come. Therefore, the Love Essence that created me, extends as Love Essence in what I create, making that Essence God Mind manifest as Thought, Light, and Energy Potential, a creative Singularity. Despite projecting a film dream of apparent separate images through the the seeming separation from Him and Her, Brahman God Mind is in me and in everything I see because my Source is Love and I am learning that Only Love is Real. This is Oneness Awareness.”

 

I say this with each object I gaze upon.

WHAT IS THE REALIZATION MATRIX (TM)?

A Sneak peak at Silencing a Thousand Barking Dogs: Subterranean Soul Gold, Spinal Wine, and My Manna of Realization by Bryan Rice 3rd Edition (Illuminatus Press)

WHAT IS THE REALIZATION MATRIX (TM)?

 

 

The Realization Matrix (TM) is a Spiritual Direction/Formation/ Healing Modality that was revealed to me through prayer and meditation. It is a system for Liberation, Illumination, Transformation, Introspection, Self-Healing, Developing “Witness Consciousness”, employing Radical Self-Honesty through “Total Allowance” and “Integration” of one’s shadow through a collective process of discernment. In the Presence of Absolute Love, an audience connected to the Unified Field, reached through pre-show meditation, creates a cooperative, calm healing presence, using a sacred space, a “matrix rebirthing womb” as a container for what is traditionally called Active Imagination, by Jungian Psycho-analysts and Spiritual Directors. There are two main goals of The Realization Matrix. The first two are, discerning and transmuting ‘spirits’ or ‘energies’, determining if they are light, dark, or admixed, rather “life-giving” and “consoling” or “life-depleting” in a manner of “desolation”, from Love (Reality) or from fear (unreality), from the God-Spark in us (King Soul) or the adversary, the accuser, the diabolical “King Ego” (a term used by Paramahansa Yoganananda, the great Hindu Yogi who brought Kriya Yoga to the West), or as Jeshua (Jesus) says in The Way of Mastery, “the sheep’s clothing of the ego (where underneath one is a ravenous wolf)..of persona…the mask….the self-image projected into the social world”. The great depth psychiatrist Carl Jung saw the ego and persona as being different aspects of the psyche. However, that is a discourse unto itself. What I am referring to, is a process of determining what is real and what is illusory, awakened aspects of the True Self or from ignorance, dreaming, and sleeping in the density of matter-bound tendencies. The third goal is most important. It is ‘entrainment’. Entrainment, for our purposes, speaks of uniting brain-wave patterns with heart-wave rhythms, creating an atmosphere of coherence and compassion in which the Releasing Individual, using the Archetype of Actor, is free to “release” and “free” automatic negative thoughts, or compulsive mental patterns, as well as repetitive thought “loops”.

 

All in all, I am speaking of bringing the past, any associated guilt, past ‘terror’, ‘hurt’, entrenched scripts/mental tape recordings and fragmented dramas that may have surfaced through growing in self-awareness, or any accompanying suffering that stems from judgment of one’s personal history, the “ashes” out of which one must arise that remain unhealed in the psyche to conscious awareness out from the subconscious. Then, through the safety of sacred space, acknowledging all that, and then being liberated from it through a collective process of blessing any residual memories that may be hindering conscious evolution for the individual, and ultimately forgiving them, and finally dissolving their ‘dark powers’, {that may have caused one’s mind-field to be possessed by the past, which A Course in Miracles teaches – never happened at all, anyway} into radiant light of the Christ Mind (Higher Self).

 

 

Releasing should always lead to Self-Awareness and progressive detachment from self-limiting beliefs and mis-perceptions that keep the Actor in bondage, negativity, obsessiveness, fixations, ruminations, mental turbulence, fanciful self-deluded neural reruns, the samskara-habit-pain-body and in self-defeating attitudes. Releasing clears the way for the Presence of the Pure Spirit of Oneness to emerge and for one to begin to create as the Way of Mastery, only “the good, the holy, and the beautiful.” The expectation is that all thoughts, emotions, and words in a Realization Matrix ritual will be “taken captive” and tested in the “laboratory” of discrimination and discernment an aspect of what is known to yogis as Jnana Yoga, Union via wisdom and non-dual Truth.

 

 

Through the progressive performance – this releasement ritual, an unveiling hopefully takes place for the Actor, while the group present, acting as the rebirthing womb and container for transformation, remains objective, open, prayerful, and receptive. This is not a clone of drama therapy. This is an effort involving Will power, energy and vibrational healing, and active listening for the voice of the Cosmic Vibratory Power, or the Holy Spirit current, to emerge in the sacred space, whether through the Actor, the Spiritual Director or Spiritual Counselor acting as a Healing Facilitator, or through an audience member, healing agent or the audience/healing matrix as a whole.

 

 

The performance is not a spontaneous unloading of the subconscious. It is scripted, as mentioned through the process of Active Imagination and giving a voice to the subconscious realm. The Realization Matrix experience is pre-written, as subterranean, subconscious emotional charges connected to the written poems, monologues, songs, or dialogues are explored and examined with a qualified professional therapist, or a spiritual director who is trained or gifted in discernment of ‘spirit’ “voices” or “currents”/movements in the soul, first subjectively, in the eye’s of the Actor/Releaser and then objectively, through mutuality and progressive detachment. The “witness consciousness” or the “observing Presence” within the Actor/Releaser is cultivated and nurtured before ever performing/releasing it in the sacred space.

 

 

This is not a book on theory. This is one particular person’s journey from a revelatory awakening experience, which was followed by a dark period of affliction, mistaken perceptions, being caught in illusory imaginings, and out of possession by the subconscious and collective unconscious’ instinctual, idea-energy forces (Archetypes), pain-body samskara tendency-habit residue that flooded the consciousness, of this individual, which happens to a path of my subsequent path of recovery, discovery, and transcendence. These series of monologues, poems, and songs tell a story of an initial Bliss experience of having a direct realization of Divine Love, then the separation from that Oneness, torment, fragmentation, mis-perceptions, and a progressive transcendence of suffering, a recovery circuitry of energy that leads back to Edenic Oneness, or the natural state of Enlightenment, felt Oneness with “Presence” and “Pure Being” (Unified Field/Creative Matrix/Womb of Creation/Mind of God).

 

 

You’ve heard that it takes a whole village to raise a child. Well, in that same line of thinking it takes the collective Presence and encounter with an expansive consciousness, to create a threshold for the release of pain and the undoing of egoic entanglements, such as fear thoughts, anxiety-provoking situations, “offending” personalities or events, and any harbored unloving thoughts. Some would choose to do this type of work one-on-one with a trusted guide (and can be), but doing this in a collective matrix environment allows powerful realizations to take place. The ultimate goal is healing the mind and purifying the emotions through awareness gained, as mentioned through objectivity in a safe setting where judgment and scrutiny is absent. Those who comprise the matrix womb should be carefully selected through discernment and prayer on the part of the Actor/Releaser, so that they will be free of self-consciousness to the fullest extent.

 

In no way, does this intervention claim to be a substitute for Cognitive Behavior Therapy and other psychotherapeutic interventions. But qualified Spiritual Directors, who, as mentioned are skilled in discerning ‘spirits’ (the “play” or “lila” of dark/light/admixed forces), and have a background/ foundation in developmental and abnormal psychology, or especially in Psychopathology, are suitable Facilitators. If a qualified priest or minister fills that role, then protective prayers and blessing can be further emphasized in what some could call a “Rite” or “Sacrament” or “Mystery”. Let’s not get attached to words. That is the whole point of “Releasement”. To disarm the “pain-body” (a name affiliated with the illumined teacher Eckart Tolle) of its “afflictive emotional charges” connected to words, by bringing it into the Presence in the Present Moment Awareness (by Observing the mental-emotional content or resulting behavior). Doing this not only ushers in detachment and self-observation, but a reverse and correction of thought distortion.

 

In the event that the performance/Releasement is halted due to needs of the Actor/Releaser that may arise and there is not sufficient time to complete the whole “script”, a unified effort should be made to seal the aura of the Actor/Releaser with healing light and Pure Loving, magnetic intentions. This is not psycho-magic. It is a Love-based metaphysical empowerment. The egoic script can be performed/Released in front of any size group or alone with a Spiritual Director, Spiritual Counselor, or Energetic/ Metaphysical Intuitive Healer. Remember, entrainment is always the goal, a re-calibration to Oneness, restoring total coherence to the heart, mind, body, and soul by “Transcending” or “Rising Above” the deep waters of the subconscious inner landscape into the higher, more evolved, more aware chakra energy vortices.

 

NOTE: Any critique of the performance/releasement will diminish the overall healing potential for the Actor/Releaser. Negative thoughts that arise during the “Rite,” should be immediately released and nullified by the person experiencing the influx of their ego/sense mind. The goal of this process is not to create a ‘masterpiece’, but rather “Realization”.

 

The Realization Matrix (TM) is a tool for Transcendence, allowing for personal and divine realizations (if indeed grace shows itself and the Divine pours out it’s Energy of Love), Liberation of Consciousness from entanglements, from separation, alienation, addictive, neurotic, obsessive, splinter (or “sub”) personality fragments/spirit-energies and all forms of affliction that lie buried beneath surface consciousness, underwater so to speak, or in what I like to call “Eden’s Basement”, the place where we shove, project, reject, repress, all our pain, humiliations, anger, hate, jealousy, fears, dreads, prejudices, and more. This kind of density and negativity is very gross and inert, and has a lot of weight to it. This is the shadow. We usually shut the door and lock it tight. With chains we think the Light of God won’t ever be able to break. The shadow is dense, but is an important part of consciousness alchemy, mind metamorphosis, deep insight into the false programs of happiness operating under the surface of waking consciousness, and a key to unlocking the door to let the “light” of intuition and introspection in to illuminate the treasured nuggets of gold that can be recycled for radiant self-knowledge and a more full, expansive glimpse of one’s Self.
