An Inspiring and uplifting series, containing “Patron only” content from mystic contemporary teachers from The Order of The Friends of Jeshua (Jesus) based on his revelations in The Way of Mastery. This episode is called “Expanding Awareness”. Join Bishop Lee Allen Petersen, Rev. Dr. Linda Marie Nelson, and Fr. Michael Sherbert in a flashback broadcast from 2011-2012.
The Divine Father-Mother created me through the extension of Love. When I rebelled against God and decided to make this world along with the collective ego-ahamkar, I was given a correction for the separation I participated in. I was given one purpose in this mayaic dream world, to forgive others by being the Love, the Light, the Christ, and Liberation of it.
I commit to Liberation by embracing today’s affirmation. Contemplating it reinforces to me that I have no other purpose but to Love and Liberate through forgiveness. Today I make a total covenant with the Father-Mother to embrace my purpose. I want the moksha Liberation of others from pain and guilt to be my only purpose, so I therefore release my attachment to other purposes I have admired.
There are two aspects to my full embracing of moksha Liberation being the impetus behind my true purpose to forgive. The first is to recognize moksha Liberation as my ultimate focus, and the second is to let go of all other pursuits I have contrived in this motion picturedream life. This is how I take on the mantle as one among many messiahs of this world among other worlds made by individual egoic-ahamkar minds. Accepting that role is the one and only way to proclaim and mean that “I was given one purpose in this mayaic dream world, to forgive others by being the Love, the Light, the Christ, and Liberation of it.” By doing this I will find santosha-contentment and shanti peace for and in my mind. The thought waves and fluctuations in my brain will then be magnetically charged with positivity by the Higher Mind in me.
Today and in several days to follow, I will reserve ten to fifteen minutes during the course of the day for extended meditation on the true meaning of today’s idea. I want to be free by releasing burdens, projected blame, and any feelings related to shame stemming from attack thoughts I may hold in my mind. Being the Liberation of the world, becoming a joint messiah gives me the fulfillment I have been hoping to find since the beginning of the illusion of time.
I will engage with the affirms at the same time each day, that is for the extended practice time. Determining it now, before hand will help to cement in and make me commit to remaining faithful to the time spent in meditation. I need to do this to have a fixed time set aside for communing in yoga-union with God and also having time for the mundane and changing tasks of each day. Jeshua says that this is part of disciplining the mind for the scope of long term growth all so that the Holy Spirit Mother can use this carved out time for communion and ananda-bliss.
To practice in a given sitting, I will contemplate today’s affirmation. Then I will close my eyes, repeat what I have said either mentally or out loud, and observe the mind with discrimination to see what thoughts may enter its field of awareness. When I am in the early phase of practice, it is okay to let unrelated thoughts come into my mind. The goal is to dig up all that surfaces to interfere with my contemplation. I will take notice of each thought that fluxuates in my brain-mind field giving it them little significance. I will remain detached and will refute each one by saying:
This thought I do not want. It represents a hindrance to attaining my only purpose.
What I will discover is that intrusive thoughts will diminish. But, I will attempt to forego the effects of any possible thoughts coming into the brain-mind field for a minute or so longer so as to catch any trivial ones that my have found their way in past my filtering faculty. I will not apply this additional effort with force. Instead I will affirm:
On this tabula rasa, this blank slate, is written my true purpose and calling.
To finish the practice, I will recite today’s affirmation idea once again and spend the rest of the practice time meditating on its value and significance. I will also be grateful for the healing aid acceptance of it brings for its ability to put an end to discord within, and satisfying the full measure to which I want Liberation regardless of the ignorant attempts I may engage in to block all its positive effects from being magnetically attracted to me through vibrational form.
I will also utilize shorter practice periods, every possible hour I can on the hour and say:
The Divine Father-Mother created me through the extension of love. When I rebelled against God and decided to make this world along with the collective ego-ahamkar, I was given a correction for the separation I participated in. I was given one purpose in this mayaic dream world, to forgive others by being the Love, the Light, the Christ, and Liberation of it.I want no other calling and this is all I am meant to do.
At times during my practice I will close my eyes, while at others I will scan the apparent outside environment around me. What I envision now will take on a whole different meaning when I do this.
We all strive. We all search. We all yearn. We hunger for meaning in our lives. This search can take many forms and can be expressed in many different ways, all seemingly unique to each person and their body-mind complex. What is it that we want? What is it that we think we need? After many decades of searching myself for those things I just listed, I believe it is purpose.
We want to know who we truly are and what our purpose is here in the world. Our purpose is to love, to forgive, and to offer miracles of healing and transformation. As A Course In Miracles teaches, we chose to come here to reject God and try to become our own creator. We had a major authority problem, and didn’t like that there was a will for us in our creation in the realm of Heaven, for that is where all true “creation” takes place. Everything here in this world or in other worlds is just a substitute, and takes place through the act of “making”, which can’t be equated with True Creation as it occurs in Heaven, whether through the Divine which ‘The Course’ calls “Father” or by His Sonship (consisting of the entirety of extended beings of formless light who share one common identity, known as Christ).
Christ means something very different in A Course In Miracles than it does in traditional Christianity. Though it has been translated to mean the “Anointed One”, it is in ‘The Course’s’ view, a collective identity which we all share. We all, in it’s teachings are that one Son (sorry to use masculine terminology, but that is what A Course in Miracles does – and it certainly doesn’t make it absolute, but it uses “Son” to connote something beyond gender and individuality. And the “Christ” was never meant to be a title that was reserved only for the man Jeshua (Jesus), either, it says, though he too was that same “Christ”.
If our True Identity is “Christ”, the one Self that we all share, what does that mean for our purpose? ‘The Course’ doesn’t use the specific word purpose, rather it says we all have a ‘special function’ or calling we were designed to carry out in God’s plan for liberation (salvation) from guilt and suffering in ourselves and also in helping to free others. Finding out what that function is takes discernment, but it usually involves what we are good at, what we are passionate about, and what can serve the highest good for our “brothers” (and sisters). Searching for our special function, discerning what it is, is a process and can be aided through prayer, spiritual practice, meditation, and through holy relationships and joining with others in a common goal.
Discernment is something we do not want to rush. We need to seek guidance. That means gathering information, asking the Divine to illumine our minds, and having an active prayer life. It helps to work with someone who has been on the spiritual path longer than we have who can be a holy listener and a sounding board for what we are attempting to process and filter through our human brains. But there are ways that we can actively seek guidance on our own and to receive answers. It is all about how we frame the questions. That will be an ongoing topic covered on these posts.
Today, I just wanted to introduce the ideas of what our identity is and what it means to discern our special function. But guidance can come in many forms and it is usually happens differently for everyone. Some receive inner guidance through an inner voice, while others may receive it in the form of imagery, or an inner ‘knowing’ or ‘feeling state’. Again though, we will talk more about how to ask and receive guidance in the future.
For now, just know who you really are. Jeshua (Jesus) was not the only begotten Son of God and we, like him are the Sons and Daughters of the Divine, an identity which we all share. Take comfort in knowing that (or at least considering the possibility). Peace and joy to you.
