FULLY PRESENT: Part Three
LIVING THE ABSOLUTE:
Transcending the Human Experience Into the Divine
By Lauren Zimmerman
The initial phase of the concept that we are “outward expressions” of the Divine and aspects of God/Creator is easy for many of us to accept. We can stand back and view the possibility that God/Creator created us in His/Her image and then sent us out into existence for one reason or another. But that’s not the way it truly is and each of us, in our hearts, knows that. Much of the unsettled, seeking feeling that we carry deep within ourselves is our quest to find and live the real Truth of who we are in union with God/Creator.
The next phase of how we are inter-laced with God/Creator is not quite as easy for most people. It is to accept that we are actual, physical expressions of God/Creator and that somewhere within us is the ability to be Divine and powerful and all-knowing. To achieve this expression of ourselves requires a complex and sometimes confusing path of overcoming issues and beliefs, and healing mental and emotional wounds. We tell ourselves that if it was true that we are actually aspects of God/Creator, we would be living different lives. We would be living the magic and miracles that we know are “out there” somewhere. This phase of the concept might allow us to believe that, if we were “healed,” living this aspect of our Divinity would be true.
The final aspect of the concept of Oneness is almost inconceivable to most of the human population. That we are true expressions of God/Creator and are capable of expressing the power of the Divine in our daily lives is almost beyond comprehension. The level of suffering, in all its myriad forms, acts as a perfect contradiction to what we are working to believe. To believe that there is no healing or “fixing” necessary and that we are perfect just the way we are. And yet this part of our quest for Oneness is what all Masters throughout time have told us is the Truth and will apply the ultimate success to our exterior world.
One of the key issues with all of the above comments is the that all of these Truths can be thought of as a “concept.” If we cannot embrace and live the Truth of the fact that we are Divine Beings, the entire subject remains a concept, a theory, and never becomes a reality that we live daily. If we cannot become the Truth that we are Divine Expressions of God/Creator, we will remain seekers. Seekers, by their very definition, never live the Truth but instead are always looking for the Truth.
How then do we become Divine Expressions? How do we step into the role of being capable of miracles, in charge of our own moments, and in such union and harmony with God/Creator that there is no separation and the truths and answers of existence are readily available to us 24/7? How do we achieve that peace that is so pervasive that questions are not asked, suffering is not existent, and harmony with life is all that exists?
One of the keys is to understand that our emotions and reactions determine what we do or do not believe. We are, literally, captives of our own interpretation of what is or is not real. As we alter our interpretation of existence and our place within it, our reality begins to change. But we cannot simply believe in what we want our reality to change into. We must know it and become it. As long as it remains a concept, an ideal, or a goal, it will remain something we seek rather than something that we are.
Allow for a moment the Truth that we create our own reality. With the acceptance of this Truth, we come to realize just how powerful we are. We are creating the entire “picture of reality” that is happening in every second of every day. When we think about how much power that takes, it’s awe-inspiring. Take the next step in your own thought process and accept that each of us are generating that power, albeit subconsciously.
What is it that drives us to create the seconds, the moments, the events that make up our lives? Our emotional interpretation and reaction to what we are creating. Thoughts are generated by our emotional interpretation and reaction. Thoughts are the base of all things that are manifested.
There are two things to take note of when this level of understanding begins. One is that we are our thoughts, meaning that, however subconscious they may be, our thoughts create the world around us. The second thing to understand is that we live in an energetic reality. We are surrounded by energy. We are energy. And energy impacts/affects energy. The thought forms of all people on Earth reside in the energetic field of Earth that we live in. If we do not, as individuals, understand and take charge of our own energy and thought-formed-reality, we are at the mercy of the energy that exists in the world around us.
What that means is that, if we do not control and manage our own thought-based-reality the energetic thoughts of other people, possibly even people we do not know, will manage our reality for us. For example, a friend who lives across town wants you to comply with his wishes and join him on a bike tour. You don’t really want to go. He emits a strong and constant energetic thought form that you will change your mind and go along with his wishes. You find yourself vacillating as his thought form/wish continues to enter your energy field. If he is persistent enough, and you are not steadfast in maintaining the integrity of what you do or do not want, his energetic thought form will cause you to help him manifest his wishes by your sudden but reluctant agreement to go along with his desires.
For centuries, Earth-reality has operated under the direction of energetic thought-forms. Unfortunately, it long ago reached the point of, when something could not be achieved by thought, it was achieved by force. At gunpoint, knifepoint, or via some other weapon, humans force their will upon others. This terribly unfortunate turn of human events not only instilled fear of reality but is one of the reasons why Universal Understanding of Energy is now called for. Though it is, at first, a difficult task to be responsible and aware of each thought we form, with practice it can become as commonplace as breathing. It becomes second nature to achieve the state of awareness that assists us in realizing what we are or are not manifesting with our thoughts and reactions.
Going back to the original point … when we allow the Truth of our own Divinity and Soul-Union to become the Truth we live, our perceptions, reactions, emotions, and interpretations change automatically. We begin to think with an expanded awareness and point of view. We begin to understand that nothing and no one is separate from us or from the Divine Source. We begin to live in a constant state of forgiveness and understanding, as well as a harmonious surrender to the process of our Soul expressing through our physical life experiences. We begin to operate from a base of pure trust and faith. As we trust that we are expressions of Soul and Divinity, we learn to trust ourselves and to know that the reality/experiences we are creating are purposeful and have a major contribution to give to our Soul’s learning experience.
As long as the fact that we are expressions of Divine Source remains a concept, or a thought outside of ourselves, we remain separated from the Truth we seek to live. Reality manifests from the thoughts and energies we generate from within. As long as we allow our reality to be formed by any energy outside ourselves, we are allowing the possibility of being impacted by something other than pure Truth. The process of becoming Divine and living the Absolute is nothing more than learning to trust ourselves. As Soul-expressions in human form, we learn that any distrust of Self that we’ve had previously was nothing more than a process we went through in order to get to the point of trusting ourselves. In other words, life-experience is a process of understanding who and what we are and allowing that process to teach us trust and faith.
The process of becoming Soul in human form is far-reaching and
cannot be completely addressed in this small format. The author
is currently working on the book (‘FULLY PRESENT’) that will address more
Soul-process topics . If you would like to be informed when
