CHRIST REALIZATION YOGA – DAY 65

DAY 65

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.

CHRIST REALIZATION YOGA – DAY 58 (REVIEW # 1: DAYS 36-40)

DAY 58

 

Today I will review the following affirmations:

 

DAY 36

My wholeness, my oneness, my sanctity, my experience of yoga-union and Communion with God Mind, Father-Mother, encompasses, surrounds, and blesses everything I perceive.

 

My wholeness, oneness, and pure in truth sanctity is the source of the Edenic State of Reality superimposed over the image of the world. I have released the past and my mind is healed of the disease of guilt. I embrace the untarnished nature and truth of my being and am at One with the Allness. My Christed sight sees and remembers only the radiant impeccable glory of the world, because in actuality the projected film of my thought vibrations are extensions of the what I reflect from my holy spotless nature, born of the Vastness of Divinity in Heaven’s Awareness.

 

DAY 37

My wholeness, my sanctity, my state of Samadhi-Oneness, my experience of yoga-union and Communion with God Mind, Father-Mother, blesses the world that the collective ego and my individual mind has created in which to learn, grow, awaken, and dissolve past accumulated karma.

 

When I see wholeness in myself I am not only infusing myself with love, but the entirety of Divinity’s Emanations. All brothers and sisters in spirit along with all things, even appearances that will fade when time comes to an end, are made radiant by the nectar of the joy wholeness and sanctity give to me. Not one single manifestation is separate from the joy of Communion with God Mind, Father-Mother, because all things share in the primal goodness of Divine Awareness. As I Realize that I am whole and sanctified, the wholeness and sanctity of the world emanates and radiates out from the Original Center and Expanse of Pure Light Truth also.

 

DAY 38

My wholeness, my sanctity, my state of Samadhi-Oneness, my experience of Yoga-Union and Communion with God Mind, Father-Mother can accomplish any desired outcome through the volition of conscious choice making.

 

My wholeness is free to express its fullness and vastness, qualities which have the power to cure and abolish sickness because that wholeness is sanctified by the magnitude of Eternal Oneness that liberates. From what else can I be liberated from in moksha (freed while living in this dream) except avidya-illussion? For all avidya-illusions are nothing more than insane beliefs about who I think I am. My wholeness dissolves and undoes all insanity by asserting the truth about who I really am. In pure presence of my wholeness and sanctified Oneness, experienced as Yoga-Union and Communion with Divinity and all His/Her Emanations, all sick and twisted gods of my ego-ahamkar’s making disappear.

 

DAY 39

My wholeness, my sanctity, my state of Samadhi-Oneness, my experience of Yoga-Union and Communion with God Mind, Father-Mother are my freedom, and my final moksha-kaivalya-liberation in this lifetime and beyond into Eternity where I rest, unbroken. Loved Far beyond crippling fear and guilt.

 

Since my wholeness protects me from the poison of guilt, acknowledging and Realizing the enlightened nature of my wholeness is Realizing my moksha-liberation. Doing this also acknowledges the moksha-liberation of the world. When I have embraced my wholeness and sanctity, there is not anything that can cripple me with fear. Since I am fearless, everyone I am connected to in spirit must also share this universal gnosis-knowing, which has been bestowed on me and the manifested world by our Source.

 

DAY 40

In truth, I am a Christed Son/Daughter, a sacred expression, extension, and emanation of the Father-Mother God, Brahman Immortal, the Dao Supreme, Divine Mind.

 

That being said and proclaimed, I Realize that all is pure and divinized. Christed. Anointed. I am a Christed Child of God and all divinized things are my inheritance, for the Divine Creator and Comforter-Sustainer of all that cannot perish, had the intent that this treasure be mine. In no way can I be tormented, deprived, or be afflicted with pain because I am a Divine Offspring. My Supernal Parents uphold me, keep me safe, embrace me, consecrate me, illuminate my mind-body vehicle, give me discernment through reason, and guide me through my contemplations, meditations, and actions. Their compassion extended to me is endless and exists forever. I am a sacred expression and emanation and am one with my Source.CHRIS

CHRIST REALIZATION YOGA – DAY 55 (REVIEW # 1: DAYS 21-25)

DAY 55
Today I will review the following affirmations, spending two minutes reflecting on each one.

 

DAY 21
With alignment to Infinite Willpower given to me by God Mind, I am determined to see objectively, from my Inner Witnessing Presence Awareness in a different, more clear perspective, seeing through the One Reality of Love in Radical Right Perception and Christ-Atman-Buddha-Krishna Mind Vision. I want to be liberated in this life through moksha. To break free from the cycle of birth and death. To let go of my grievances, my anger, to see not through my klesha-afflictions, but through the One Love that unites us all.

 

All that I seem to see are images of disease, disaster, and death, Jeshua (Jesus) says. God Presence did not intend this for His/Her Sons and Daughters. The fact that I see these things proves that I misunderstand the Divine Source and therefore don’t correctly realize who His Son is. That of which I see indicates to me, I do not realize who I really am. I have the volition through Infinite Willpower to see only the truth of my being, not avidya-illusions.

 

DAY 22
The images and thoughts of which I interpret to mean something with a negatively charged vibration are really an assault on the little self I call ‘me’. When I identify with an individual, separate, different from others self, I perceive and interpret the world to be an attack on my egoic false-self. I am not an individual self. I am part of One Whole Unified Field of Love and Light. When I believe I am an individual self instead of the Son/Daughter of God, the True Self Christ and Atman, I am assaulting myself with unconscious fragments and slivers of false thought. When I deny assault in my individual mind, I use the egoic film projector to create and interpret that very assault as coming from an outside world, disowning it. My response is to enshroud myself in a bubble of protection from that world and attack and assault it, my brothers and sisters in spirit, and all of which I seem to perceive. I get caught in the vicious cycle of the egoic-ahamkar manifestation of drama comprised of conflict, where I seem to see assault and attack and then feel the intense need to counter attack. This will continue to happen until I liberate my mind through Jnana Yogic discrimination. Using the buddhi-intellect, I deny the manas-sense-mind from taking control of what I interpret to be a hostile reality, that in truth is an illusion. I must and can escape from my ingrained perceptual hoax, the carnal, savage movie I out-picture as a world filmstrip, with attached sound, tainted light beams, moving images, a script, sets, props, tragedies and comedies at the expense of truth, and actors and actresses, who I think are making independent choices, when in reality I am making them up from the one ahamkar-ego that is appearing as a multiplicity of egos.

 

The world I perceive is not a representation of vibratory loving thoughts. As Jeshua Jesus says, “It is a picture of attack on everything by everything. It is anything but a reflection of the Love of God and the Love of His Son.” I must affirm that it is my own thoughts of threat that paint this picture of life as I know it in this world. I must know that my loving and peaceful thought waves that will liberate me from such a perception of the world, and give me the bliss-peace-shimmering-light Divine Presence wants me to have.
Today I will change my thoughts to change the world I see.

 

DAY 23
I can dream a new dream, see a new world order by surrendering my assaulting thoughts that my individual egoic-ahamkar mind projects outward into the sea of nothingness-void, by letting the Radical Right Minded Projector shine Light and Love rather than the despair of fear. Free breeds anger. Anger produces assault and attack thoughts. The only release from fear comes by transforming my chitta-mind stuff, the vritti-fluctuations of the mind. By making my mind still and empty. By changing what I project. By extending only Loving thoughts. By welcoming in the neutral mind and caring for the aura and radiant bodies that are at my core, from the existence of the nine other bodies outside the physical. I must go beyond the physical sheath, the anna maya kosha out to the intellectual sheath or the buddhi mind, the mano maya kosha, and out even further to the Bliss sheath, the ananda maya kosha. Bliss will eradicate the fear that produces assault and attack thoughts. Perceiving with the physical ego-body’s eyes will always breed assault and defensiveness stemming from fear of danger.

 

Though I can be a change agent in the world, there is no real point in trying to manipulate outer appearances of form. At the level of causation and ideational thought, I must create in alignment with God Mind, a different experience while in the illusory world. Changing at the level of cause will change the effect on the movie screen of the matrix ego-womb mind. The world I seem to perceive is an assault on myself. But the illusory external unreality cannot really harm me in all honesty. The movie dream my split mind projects is not True Seeing. This is not sight, but hallucination. Image making is not the same as resting in Pure Being or Samadhi Oneness with Divine God Mind. My false-self superimposes images of assault and they seem to assault me back. Radical Right Perception must be welcomed by my Higher Mind, the Christ Mind-Atman Self. Mirages do not last and cannot have Infinite effects. Communion and Yoga-Union with God will be the Everlasting Will that extends rather than projects.

 

Aligning with Radical Right Perception and even going beyond perception at all levels to Gnosis-Knowledge or Divine Realization and Divine Contact will bring about true liberation from karma or the law of cause and effect that seems to bind me to all the physical bodies I have inhabited in life time after life time. I am tired of dying and coming back to the world I hallucinate in conjunction with the one fractured collective ego. Some people call the liberation I seek, salvation, but liberation has a different connotation.

 

Under the spell of maya-hypnosis, I do not see that I am the filmmaker, seeming to direct this motion-picture film drama of apparent happenings. My Christ Mind can change what is playing in the theater of shadows and replace the disturbing, violent, horror film, the product of fear and hate and must replace it with a different film which was made by Divinity Allness, Supreme Spirit, Brahman-Father-Mother, the moment the separation seemed to occur (although it did not), when the Memory of my Divine Origin was placed in my mind, Kundalini Desire Energy or the Rising Potential of Holy Spirit.

 

By surrendering assaulting thoughts, I am liberated. Without thoughts having the intent to harm, I would not perceive a world filled with assault and threats of danger. Today, I allow forgiveness to bring love back into my mind field, so as to only see a world of peace and safety and joy. I choose these things instead of what I now perceive.

 

DAY 24
My individual, egoic-ahamkar misuses the faculties of perception to receive messages that do not reflect what is of optimum wellness and truly right and good for me. Self and Christ-Realization is the only goal I should have. Due to strongly identifying with an individual, isolated self appearing to be in this world exile experience in the unpredictable wilderness, I seem to be under a spell of delusion that prevents me from perceiving outcomes to expectations that will bring me Supreme Santosha-Contentment. Alone and apart from the Cosmic Vibratory Memory of Divinity Origin, the Holy Desire-Energy-Spirit in my mind, I have no real guide to making the best choices that would bring about Supreme Santosha-Contentment and my overall good. What I have perceived with my individual egoic-ahamkar have been misconstrued and untrue and therefore what I have chosen to do in almost all circumstances has depended upon my interpretations and perceptions. So, I must embrace acceptance that I apart from God Mind do not recognize what is Radically Right for me to do. To do what is Radically Right and good should be my only expectation at all times, because I am prone to hypnotic confusion about what is the best outcome for my True Self, Christ and Atman Self. Recognizing that on my own, I will be unclear about what is of optimum wellness for me, opens me to being taught by the Inner Guru, Inner Wisdom, Universal Inspiration, and the Intuitive Guide Within. Asleep at the wheel of this earth-bound experience will only block learning. Today, I take a step towards expanding my mind about what is Radically Right for me to do while in this body vehicle, seeming to interact with outer objects, people, and experiences.

 

How can I recognize what is of true, optimum wellness for me when I do not know who I am? What I think is truly right and good for me really keep me in bondage to delusions. I affirm and commit to listening to the guide Divine Presence gave to me in my mind the second separation seemed to occur. I realize I cannot perceive optimum wellness and what is truly right and good for me on my own.

 

Today, I must be brutally honest with myself so as not to fall victim to contradictory outcomes, by accepting that my individual, isolated self knows nothing on its own. This is an important step in the process of unraveling the mind from the web of maya I am stuck in. I want to awaken in this lifetime.

 

 

DAY 25
I am not aware in this moment in time and space, what anything I seem to see with the body’s eyes are for. Purpose and meaning are the same. But my individual mind has confused and tried to replace the purpose of Christ Mind and the Cosmic Vibratory Memory of God with a delusory thought system. I have many mistaken ideas when I choose to associate with the ego thought system. Since I do not know what any given thing I perceive is for, it by default has no meaning for me. It is time to let go of the meaning the egoic-ahamkar thought system has assigned to everything I seem to encounter in this world dream. Everything in this world is supposed to be for my own best interests, according to the ego. But this is not the case. By design these things are supposed to fulfill me. That is what all things are supposed to be for under the thought system of the egoic-ahamkar. That is the purpose they are supposed to serve. The individual mind tells me that. Under this premise, my goals are in turn supposed to be unified. But this simply doesn’t happen when under the spell of illusion, subjectivity, and relativity. Everything becomes a blur and a distortion made to keep me asleep.
When I perceive with the individual, separative, subjective mind, I am unaware of what things are for and this mind gives meaning with its interpretation system. The aspirations and goals that originate in the individual mind that is separate from God Mind, are not in my own best interests, because I am in Reality not the individual egoic-ahamkar mind. My false association with the ego’s dream causes me to be incapable of knowing what anything means and what anything is for. Once I accept and acknowledge this, I will stop reinforcing my individual mind’s aspirations for the world dream I seem to experience and pull back from the projected images of these unconscious wishes. When I turn off the ego film projector by aligning with God and Christ Mind there will be a blank screen filled with golden-white light that the darkness of the images and wishes were hiding. Since I am only part of One Unified Mind, the wishes and desires of the individual mind really are concerned with nothing at all. By holding these wishes and desires as special, my individual mind has no goals, in the scope of what is True and Real, and therefore, I can’t know what anything is for.

 

When thinking in terms of superficiality, my egoic-ahamkar mind understands purpose, but True Purpose cannot be comprehended with superficial vibrations. The magnetism of thought at this level is weak and foggy at best. Today, I realize that the purpose of everything and everyone I think of and see is to convince me that my avidya-illusions about myself are in effect real and true. I have a false belief that the world is for telling me these things that are not really true. The purpose I have given the film dream movie of a world led to a terror-inducing picture of it. Today, I commit to opening and expanding my mind to the world’s real purpose which is to teach me to wake up and be only Love for All in All.

 

In order to awaken, to grow in understanding, and to evolve, I must surrender and let go of the individual goals that come from the ego mind. Individual goals mean nothing. As mentioned in the previous day’s contemplation, Self and Christ-Realization, Divine Realization of who I really am is the only goal and will I really should and do have. Aum. Peace. Shanti. Amen.

CHRIST REALIZATION YOGA – DAY 53 (REVIEW # 1: DAYS 11-15)

DAY 53
The following key ideas will be reviewed today. Spend two minutes contemplating each affirmation.

 
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 give meaning, taking a positionality, making judgments while grossly misinterpreting what I think is real.

 

Both the thought fluctuations that I am observing moving through my mind and the outside world are devoid of meaning. This dream world has been projected from a sick filmmaker, the collective ego-ahamkar, which was made in a moment of delusion and a desire for something more than the Allness of the Father-Mother’s Love. Therefore, the dream world must produce twisted and distorted manifestations. Edenic Oneness, the Truly Real, is not and never will be totally insane, and I own the fact that my mind has both Truly Real thoughts as well as full blown insane ones. The good news is that I can, through Christ Vision see a Truly Real World, if I am using my True and Whole thoughts as my inner guide for obtaining Realization and thereby, sight.

 

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.

 
Grossly psychotic thoughts are disturbing, and they manifest the illusion of a dream world where there is total chaos and horror. Only extreme disorder has dominion over such a world which witnesses to the abyss of chaotic thought processes. I know now, as Jeshua (Jesus) says that “chaos has no laws”. How could I dwell in a manifested world based on insanity and honestly say I could be in shanti-peace? I want only love and serenity through acceptance of the Real World and to be in bhakti-devotion to true creation found in the realm of Heaven. I have so much appreciation for the Realization that the insane world I think I am living in is only an hallucination of delusion. In actuality I do not have to look upon such a catastrophic world, not unless I choose to give it meaning and choose to cherish it. Therefore, this day and every day, I will not choose to identify with or cherish what is completely and utterly the product of psychosis and which is devoid of meaning altogether.

 

DAY 13
The sick-minded ego is deluded, making me think that I am in competition with God, which I can’t be, because God is All in All and incapable of opposition or war mongering of any kind. That being said, it is anxiety-provoking for me to consider that the world could be without meaning, as for those ensnared in separative mayaic duality, and in those who appear to be separated, those entranced in relativity and subjectivity, it is fear provoking to think that the Divine Transcendent could possibly in reality be at war with a devil. It is ultimately God and the demiurgic-devil-ego that seem to be at war within me, wanting me to assign meaning to the world based on the cases they plead. The egoic-ahamkar wants to establish its own story and dramas as important and meaningful with respect to the world, when all that exists is Heaven and a vastness in the Primordial Matrix-Womb out of which real life is created. Fear is insane and I now start to see the relationship of cause and effect.

 

What is completely unstable and rooted in fragmentation promotes the negative emotion of fear for the reason that it is unreliable and cannot be trusted. That of which is insane cannot invoke confidence in it, by a sane mind. The fragmented cannot offer security and definitely not peace, nor fulfill any yearning. A fragmented projected world is illusory and is formed by shadows and darkness. Often times I have put faith in it, honoring it as a true and whole manifestation and as a result have been tormented and tortured by its immanent perceived presence. Today, moving forward in conviction and clarity, I withdraw my investment in what is fragmented and distorted and instead invest my magnetic resonance with what is real and true. In doing this, I can and will be liberated from all the negative outcomes that come from believing in a world based on vibrations of toxic fear, and I affirm that it has no timeless essence.

 

DAY 14
A meaningless world is impossible. This is due to the fact that the world I see, God did not create. God created the infinite potentiality of thought, light, and energy. Our source is the First Cause.

 

A world devoid of substantial meaning cannot exist if it was not emanated from the Fullness of the Father-Mother Divine Source of all that is. All meaning comes from the Divine, from Brahman, Adonai, Yaweh, Elohim and everything that does exist in the Mind of that Allness. I must acknowledge that substantial meaning is in my mind as well, because the Allness emanated and extended it from the center of It’s Being with my knowing. I do not want to and should not have to be afflicted by the outcomes of my individual fragmented, mad thoughts, not when the Ineffable and Untainted nature of creation is my homestead. Today, I recall the gravity of my affirmation and acknowledge and Realize where it is I truly dwell, in an eternal, causal and ideational world of the Pleroma (Heaven) and its many mansions and abodes.

 

DAY 15
My thoughts are energy and information that when given belief appear to take form. The film strip running through the projector of the split-egoic-ahamkar mind is projected out onto the screen of what appears to be a world of dancing macabre images. This is far from Radical Right Perception. When I make images, I am seeing a dream movie of subjective, relative thought with actor and actress ego consciousness that become bodies and seem to incarnate. My ego tries to direct the movie of image making out of its fractured matrix film projector and manipulate what it calls ‘real’. Only Radical Right Perception is Real. When I begin to see light surrounding objects, Radical Right Perception is at work, and my shared Christ Mind beam of light from the film projector of God Mind that creates rather than makes is being accessed. At this stage in the yogic discrimination process between the ego-director and God-Mind at one with Christ Mind Director/Producer, I am still dismantling the dream world, the dance of illusion images that appear “out there” in the wilderness desert. These are important, but small steps that my True Self is taking.

 
All that I see is a direct mirror image of my mental thought forms. My thoughts in the form of vibrations and frequencies, measurable pulsations give credence to where I reside as well as what my true identity is. I see a depraved, tormented world filled with devastation and pain. That maxim tells me I am perceiving solely the manifestation of my twisted, distorted ego thought splinters. I Realize that I am preventing my true and whole thought waves to reflect their magnificent, radiant light ray potential on what I look upon. However, when I rest in the Divine Allness, I know through gnosis-knowledge that my Source’s will is absolute. The haunting ghost projections never will defeat the Father-Mother, because in truth my will is one with my Supernal Parents’, and I don’t want to go against them. The will power I possess is my Heavenly Source’s, and I refuse to genuflect before false gods of substitution instead of Him-Her.

DESIRE: UNDERSTANDING THE NATURE OF PRAYER

Desire is the basic life energy that motivates everything we think, do, and feel. Regardless of how you view desire, either as something meant to bring you what you want or as the source of all striving which leads ultimately to suffering, we can’t ignore its power and significance.

Desire energy is what created us as Pure Spirit in the Fullness of Heaven. The Divine is Holy Desire. The desire to extend Love. Real and True Love. If we were begotten by Love, which came from desire, that too must be a part of our make up and inherent nature.

I am of the belief that we must harness desire, no matter what metaphysics or ontology you might subscribe to. I say that because it is such a powerful source. In the view of A Course In Miracles, a non-dualistic teaching said to have come from Jeshua (Jesus) himself, the Collective Son/Daughter of God, the Sonship desired to experience something “special”, something more than God, whether you view the Divine as Father or not, it doesn’t really matter (although I believe The Course ultimately points towards a personal God instead of just some energy or essence). The text of that now widely disseminated teaching, says we attempted to usurp the power of God. We, in one insane moment, as a collective whole thought we could experience something better than Oneness with the Father (the term The Course uses to denote God). As a result, a separate state (seemed) to emerge, thus causing a split, in the One Mind we shared with God, leaving us with not only a collective, but personal ego.

Getting back to desire, it is, I believe, at the root of everything as I mentioned above. For the purpose of this short article, I want to now turn to desire as the driving force behind prayer.

All prayer is desire in motion. Even animals pray, expressing a desire to find food or a place to sleep. They are driven by desire. They can’t escape the drive of desire. Neither can we. Though I am not going to take sides on what we should or shouldn’t pray for in our lives, we need to understand that in some way, every prayer we offer up is an expression of the desire energy that, again, is at the core of who we are. Though desire and love are related, desire can be expressed as fear and all the emotions that stem from fear as well. When we turn to a “Higher Power” to seek guidance, and even when we pray to receive “things”, we are doing it directly out of the Desire Energy that courses through us.

Prayer in my belief, the way I have come to understand it through various mystical teachings, should first be an expression of Love, Devotion, or Communion with our  Source. We need to “return” to our Source of Oneness (though in reality I believe that we never truly separated from the Father, we just appear to be in exile here on earth) when we offer up what is in our hearts. If we just pray for things, what the supplement The Song of Prayer that was channeled and received after the publishing of A Course in Miracles, calls “idols”, we are at a low rung on the “ladder of prayer” that leads us back to a state of communion and union with God. If we seek communion and union first, to express the “Song” that is sung between us and God, all things ‘shall be added unto us’. Jeshua once taught in his sermon on the Mount that if we seek first the Kingdom of Heaven, all things shall be added unto us. The things we really need to get along in this world (not just the things we want) will come in the form of “echoes”, a secondary reply to prayer we offer up.

It is all about alignment. If we are in alignment with the Father (Or Mother, if you prefer), we will be taken care of and all our ‘true desires’, those that are expressions of love, not fear of being either abandoned or rejected, by the Divine Lover, will be heard, and we will receive just what we are asking for whether it is something real or something illusory. If we pray or desire something illusory we are desiring nothing and will receive exactly that – and thereby experience emptiness, that we will long to fill with more “things” or “idols”.  I just wanted to provoke thought by writing this, not cause the reader to feel guilt or remorse. It is my belief, that we should aim high, ‘go for the gold’, seek our treasure which is eternal, and align ourselves with the Divine Presence if we are to be truly happy. This will satisfy our deepest yearning and “true desires”.

Just know that thoughts do manifest in some form. And we do get what we ask for in some way. That is the nature of desire at work. We were created in the image and likeness of God and have the ability to turn our thoughts into form. We need to respect the power of desire, and like I said earlier, harness it, direct it wisely, and for Love. That is the only way we will find lasting peace and joy. Prayer is not just about offering praise and adoration, for God does not have an ego. It is about joining. Returning to the Heart of the Divine Presence. Our Source of endless love and our ‘true sustenance’.  Therefore, use your desire to join, first with the Divine, then with others, out of love, and everything you truly need will be provided for Love does not abandon or deny Itself.
