CHRIST REALIZATION YOGA – DAY 33

DAY 33

I will now perceive the projected world dream, the maya motion picture of dancing illusions, in a radically different manner. I will gaze upon it with Love and with the Vision of the True Self-Christ and Atman Self and see only God behind the image of all things. Oh, Immortal God, oh Dao, oh Brahman Supreme, Father-Mother Allness help me see with spiritual sight.

 
When I look upon the outside dream, collective and personal, the dream of hell, as the Toltecs calls it, I have the tendency to shut God out of the movie. I don’t see him with the body’s eyes. So, this day, morning and evening, for five minutes at a time, I vow to look with Christ Vision and to see from a perspective coming from the Cosmic Vibratory Memory of God, the Holy Spirit Mother, Fiery Kundalini Desire Energy in my mind, adding new frames to the filmstrip being projected outward onto the screen of Infinite Light.

 

Today, I let a shift take place in my perception and imaging of both my inner and outer worlds. I can allow God Mind and Jeshua Jesus to guide my Real Mind to survey the world and show me a different dream. A Happy Dream. A Loving Dream. A dream where I Love my brothers and sisters in spirit through miracle-mindedness and see only Love in them, eradicating all projected, unconscious guilt coming from my false self cellar where cob webs dwell. I align myself with the attic of the mansion of God with its many rooms in which I am called to dwell and awake in. Forgiveness is the Lamp that lights my Realization and Radical Right Sight.

 

 

Today, I will notice, observe, and simply witness things in the world without casting judgment upon what I see. Inner teacher guide me. Through objectivity and contemplation, in many frequent shorter sittings, I will allow sparks of God Light to shine and shimmer, illuminating the path before me, on which I will travel home to Paradise Oneness, that I, in reality never left. Let this day be a Homecoming as the prodigal Son or Daughter, being fully embraced by Father-Mother God’s Love. As the Christ Awareness holds His hand on my shoulder, I look upon a world of light that shines away all darkness. Today, I realize that I can perceive God Mind in all things, beyond the image of all things and bodies. Realization, that I am in Reality, still at One with God brings comfort. I will stop listening to the lies of the little, individual mind whose outlook is distorted and the product of a hazy, almost intoxicated-like hallucination. Holy Spirit, sober my seeing. Kundalini rise and empower me. Bring me the joy of Gnosis, Divine Realization, Revelation, and Knowledge about my Source. Through my third eye ajna chakra, let me see intuitively what is really present in the Unified Field of Love, standing in the circumference of the Radiant Rays Emanating outward from The One Real Allness Center of True Creation. Aum. Peace. Shanti. Amen.

GNOSIS vs. GNOSTICISM: MAKING A DISTINCTION

by Bryan Rice on October 31, 2009.

(Though my views have changed since 2009 and I am not identified with radical dualistic gnosticism anymore, I thought I would re-blog this to make some distinctions that I think are worth pondering).

What is meant by gnosis? What is meant by Gnosticism?

Gnosis has many connotations. It is a Greek word that means knowledge. But in the context of “Gnostic” belief, it can refer to multiple forms of knowledge. The type of knowledge for a Gnostic is not mere conceptual, informative, data, nor analytical ideas, as many heresiologists might contend. For a Gnostic, gnosis means a direct experience of the Transcendent God, unmediated by anyone else, imparted to an individual. Gnosis is understood to be “knowledge of the divine”, or “self-knowledge”. I have come to know it as being “Divine acquaintance”. According to Elaine Pagels, gnosis means “insight”. Gnosis and the idea of Enlightenment are interchangeable. It also can mean “self-realization” or “illumination”. It is “A Way”, A “Path” one treads in an unfolding awakening process, in discovering their divine nature. The awakening that takes place through gnosis, is waking from ignorance in a person, about their divine origin, that they came from God’s Light, as children of the Light. Gnosis leads one to be anointed with the Christos, and to become a light-bearer. Gnosis also helps free individuals from the prison of matter, rather the illusion of separateness from the Transcendent God, who I have come to know as the Holy Androgyne, of not only Father+, but Mother+ too, and (not achieve) but attain Christ or Messianic Consciousness.

Gnosticism then, is a movement and a worldview dedicated to liberation from ignorance about one’s origin and to reaching one’s full potential or awakening in Christ Consciousness. According to Wikipedia Gnosticism “refers to diverse, syncretistic religious movements in antiquity consisting of various belief systems generally united in the teaching that humans are divine souls trapped in a material world created by an imperfect god. This being is frequently identified with the Abrahamic god.” There are several sects in traditional Gnostic spirituality and practice such as Mandeans, Manicheans, Cathars, and Valentinians. Roots of Gnosticism come from Zorastrianism from Egypt, from Greece, and from Jewish mysticism related to what is known as the Kabbalah. Gnosticism as a worldview typically exists in dualistic consciousness, with the idea that the Transcendent God is “illimitable” and the eternal light, and a half-creator, or Demiurge, that came from an Emanation from God named Sophia, who decided to give birth to an offspring without blessings from God. Typically in Gnosticism, the world and creation and the cosmos are seen as the doing of the Demiurge, who considered himself a god. He became known as the lesser god who after creating a “corrupt and perishable universe”, (as antiquity teaches), created archontic powers, seen by many to be fallen angels.

So, matter and light are typically in Gnosticism to be distinct from one another, despite the belief that divine sparks of light are trapped in every incarnate human. To many, Gnosticism is a reality seen through the lens of poetic mythology, metaphors, the alternative view of creation, as mentioned, and traveling a unique path of salvation, “The Way” to gnosis. The eternal, imperishable realm of the Transcendent God exists as an outward Emanation from him/her. The real God exists in the Pleroma, or Fullness of God. Emanating outward from God are “divine principles” or “faces of God” called Aeons. They extend out and down towards matter, where separation from God seems to occur. Gnosticism supports the idea that “self-realization” can lead to a second birth and a human’s spirit can become a begotten son or daughter, an Aeon, in the Pleroma. For a Gnostic, knowledge in the forms talked about above, is what saves a person from having to reincarnate back into matter in a cyclic pattern. This belief is contrary to mainstream Christianity for instance, which says people are saved from their sins because Jesus died on the cross for them. They believed that the shedding of his blood atoned for their sins and that his resurrection from the dead opened the door for humanity to eternity.

RISE FIRST, THEN DIE: A BRIEF GLIMPSE AT THE GOSPEL OF PHILLIP

by Bryan Rice on October 31, 2009.

In the Gospel of Phillip, Jesus says, “Those who say the will die first then rise are in error. If they do not first receive the resurrection while they live, when they die they will receive nothing.” What does he mean? What is meant by the resurrection?

According to Lawarence Caruana, author of the book The Hidden Passion: The Story of the Gnostic Christ, the idea of resurrection that Phillip speaks of in his gospel, is closely tied to the sacrament of Redemption. Resurrection is seen to be a “visionary ascent through the aeons” of the Pleroma, done to prepare a person for their “after-death ascent”. Someone being initiated into the Gnostic Christian faith would receive Redemption for the purpose of gaining gnosis or knowledge of the names of the beings in the Lower and Upper Aeons who “would receive that person during their post-mortem or visionary ascent” (A Glossary of Gnostic Terms – http://www.gnosticq.com).

L. Caruana focuses specifically on the term resurrection further down in his glossary of terms. He cites the traditional Gnostic idea that there won’t be a bodily resurrection, and that the soul dwells temporarily in the body, which he says belongs to the Archons. The Gospel of Judas and the Testimony of Truth both say that the body or flesh will be left behind.

I intuit that there is more to the idea that Jesus said, written in Phillip’s gospel. Attaining gnosis or knowledge about the Heavenly Realm or Fullness from whence we came, is integral to making one’s self ready to travel “The Way” back to the Father/Mother. It’s almost like Jesus is instructing that knowing about or having had a glimpse of one’s intended destination, according to the Will of the Transcendent God – to redeem every living thing back into his/her fold – is a necessary preparation for a soul to be “homeward bound”. Perhaps Jesus was emphasizing that experiencing gnosis or the Divine Presence was primary to avoiding reincarnation back into matter or to another life afflicted by distractions that keep a person seemingly separate from God. According to Archbishop Christian Thomas Umberger, a person must experience a second birth, the resurrection, fueled by “self-realization” to secure a place in the Pleroma as a begotten son or daughter of God. He stated furthermore, as a result of “resurrection” before death, a person can become an Aeon in the Fullness of God.

The reality that someone who doesn’t experience resurrection prior to dying, as Jesus says, they will receive nothing, I can only infer that he meant, having not attained any knowledge about one’s true identity, their Ultimate Source, and “The Way” home to the Father/Mother, would leave a person trapped, a prisoner to the flesh, remaining in ignorance. Hence they would receive nothing comparable to the ascent through the Aeons, because they remained in darkness.

CHRIST REALIZATION YOGA – DAY 12

DAY 12
To correct perceptual distortion, the one in which I believe that my real Self is capable of being upset due to the fact that what I think I see is a world so terrifying, so depraved, so barbaric, and a living cold asylum when in reality the world has no meaning. It is neutral.

 

The above traits are merely ones I label the egoic-ahamkar dream Play, the mayaic dance macabre of avidya-illusions, the play of shadow and light in a matrix out of which we create and download programmed belief systems that have no basis in the reality-river of soul-spirit nectar. I misperceive by superimposing a film script, an ego-mind movie from the compromised, split womb-mind out of which forms manifest into matter.

My visions arise out of an abyss of tricks. When I see divisive happenings I am in dark subconsciousness that is my attractor field I am in alignment with, I see through the eye of the tamasic (darkening quality) dark bowels of subconscious hell. In reality, there is no hell, but in my adoration to error and insane held beliefs, that the world is a burning lake of fire tormenting me and making outrageous demands of me, I misperceive.

Am I entrenched in diabolical duality or am I in alignment with higher Messianic Peace-Presence? It all depends on me. whether I listen to the Cosmic Vibratory Holy Spirit that is Christed Eternally or ignore Paradise Awareness, the inner Promised Land so graciously given to me in every moment of now and see only putrid hate, craziness, a horror film on parade depends on my gradation of conscious awareness. At what level of consciousness-energy do I calibrate? In Truth or in falsehood? In Bliss or in fear? In Hope or despair? In Wisdom or in ignorance? In unconditional Love or hate? In fiery Holy Desire or depleted carnal addiction? I will contemplate these questions often throughout the day in short sittings and for an extended amount of time when I first wake up and before I retire to sleep at night.

The world I see, a consequence of the fall into matter, an abuse of the matrix Mother force by the force of duality has no meaning other than that which I give it. All things begotten by thought engendered in light and energy are inherently good. It is the moment to moment print outs from the quantum flowing soup of all possibilities and pure potential when actualized that must be examined through the filter of neutrality and allowance to eliminate judgment, reactivity, and indifference.

What I see is what I experience. For better or for worse, I choose to see differently. I choose neutrality as my lens for correct perception and retract all emotional currents experienced in the limbic system of my brain from superimposed projections constructed in the tiny egoic chamber that thrives off of separation-duality-tension and its sick love of opposites.

CHRIST REALIZATION YOGA – DAY 11

(Inspired by but not limited to A Course in Miracles Teachings (1st Edition), Yogic Philosophy, Quantum Physics, Eastern Thought, and writings by Paramahansa Yogananda)

DAY 11
The time to initiate the mind de-fragmentation or correction process begins. The fluctuations of energy and information constructing a thought must be put under the microscope of discrimination. The magnified view from perfect Christ Presence illumination reveals your Christed Mind, the reality that may at first appear to devastate, but then unlocks the door hiding the truth that liberates.

The mayaic delusory dance of images are not the cause nor inspiration for thought current. The separation induced psychosis that distorts, determines the projected brain drama that you see superimposed on top of the screen of the world-wilderness, originating from the matrix womb of creation. The Christ Mind is forever in resonance with bliss and oneness while the separative impulse fails to realize that what the eyes see and brain interprets are/is meaningless and completely neutral. My personal ego gives or assigns what I appear to see meaning, taking a positionality, making judgments while grossly misinterpreting what I think is real.

I am here to learn about how to live in Reality without fleeing to the hiding place of the world seen by my body’s eyes, through the force of dwaita or duality that is at the core of separation, discord, and denied peace of mind.
