Realization breaks the endless cycle of me. Whole bodily realization ends the cycle of me. Realization is and remains an instantly available limitless source of Self, while whole bodily surrender unto Realization requires a process, and this is a process of total human development and awakening.
Do not become entangled with the notion that the body is just some kind of fleshy meat that is bound to waste away into nothing. But, in Reality the body is all one has, the body Is consciousness also, and it is not separate in any way from the Divine Transcendental Light of Consciousness. Step beyond bodily consciousness and feel into the presence of consciousness not bound to a body/mind, and there is Onlyness, not individuality, not evolution, not this or that, no 'God', no me, no I, no nothing, no something, no no, no yes, God Only Is. However, it is up to each person, and every individual is responsible for the activity of ego. Ego is the one conscious activity of the individual that binds that person to feeling contracted and fragmented, along with the absence of transcendental realization of Self. Ego is the eclipse of the Divine Light.
This is one reason why Guru is important, and that is because the Guru provides a steady and stable source of Realization that the individual can turn to and feel into for ego release and freedom. Heart communion appears with each other, heart communion appears with the bodily form of the Guru, heart communion is the height of spiritual life; and heart communion is the fulfillment of of God's word, God's message, God's teaching, God's revelation, and God's realization. Through heart communion Realization is understood and tangibly consciously realized to Be the Divine One alive as us. Beyond heart communion there is The~Only.
Be whole bodily Open to God. Transcend Heart~Fire intensity by transcending personal self. Until there is absolute personal self (egoic) transcendence, there is a contraction living on the consciousness of the body/mind like a parasite in the host. Furthermore, when the intensity of the Divine Light (Guru of Enbrightenment) is in the process of overwhelming the body/mind with ItSelf the intensity of this process leaves the ego turning inward upon itself to blot out the feeling of transcendence. The egoic process in relation to the body/mind becoming open to the Living Presence of Brightness sort goes like this, the more there is a feeling of an absence of personal self (via the Overwhelming Force of True Everlasting Self Presence), the more there is the conscious feeling presence of fear itself, even the conscious feeling of imminent death. The egoic forms of self always view transcendence as if it means the end of personal existence, thus, the first dynamic of 'me' in such an experience is to recoil upon itself and struggle for personal existence against the overwhelming Light of God.
The difference between a parasite and a host verses ego and the human body/mind is that each person (the host) has the inherent power of Truth, thus enabling each person to become liberated of the parasite of ego self. The core of this revelation also says that all are already and perfectly Free of ego, birth and death in that which is Eternally Free of ego, birth and death. The activity of ego (conscious feeling activity of personal self) cannot itself become free or liberated or live a transcendent life. Therefore, trying to progress spiritually through a false sense of self is like putting your hand in a blender, turning it on, and blaming the blender for damage to your hand. You can't pull yourself up by your own bootstraps, you can't remove a mountain with the very same mountain, and a mountain cannot be removed with itself.

The contracting quality of 'me' is an ever present activity of attachment to bodily life. However, the Brightness is inherently transcendent of the/any body/mind, yet, the body/mind is truly manifesting, moment to moment, in the midst of Eternal Transcendence. All worlds, bodily forms, and things are actually manifesting as simply apparent modifications of Eternal Reality. Not one thing appearing is permanent, and there are no worlds, universes, heavens or hells that last forever. It might be possible to extend human life for many thousands of years, and to travel across the galaxy or even further, but the human body, and any possible bodily form that exists, appears and/or needs space/time in order to exist. In the absence of a universe, of any type, all that is left is Reality or God ItSelf. In the presence of any universe, of any type, there is Only Reality or God ItSelf. All that appears is unnecessary and non-binding to Reality or God ItSelf. An Enbrightened way of looking at this says Only attach one’s Feeling of Self to Eternity ItSelf, and to whole bodily and consciously Transcend all motives, urges and tendencies towards attachment in any world, to any body/mind, to transcend any and all attachment to a personal identity, and Transcend All possible temporary feelings of personal self Perpetually and Freely Now and forever.
Be whole bodily Available to the Divine Presence of Reality ItSelf. This is something each person is responsible for, and no amount of dogma, belief or evolution can be subsidized for taking personal responsibility for self Transcendence, not for some other pseudo/fragmented identity, but for the Divine Living Brightness of God. This personal responsibility is yours and yours only, and in the Grace filled company of the Guru, you can take Rest by consciously Feeling into the Guru’s own bodily Transcendent Transmission of the Divine One. This gives Way to Heart Communion, and through Heart Communion the Fullness of the Teachings can progress unto the whole Awakening of the Spiritual Cross. This is not something to be done on a weekend retreat, or at a passing visit from some kind of guru. Heart Communion is the last place of one ‘journeys’ through in the Divine Process of Enbrightenment. It takes time, discipline, devotion, persistence, Heart yearning, and simply total Attachment unto the Divine Only. Blessings.

Fear mongering ministry is dying, and should be dead culturally already. This kind of ministry has lost grip with Reality, Truth and True God, but Not anthropomorphic god. Fear mongering and anthropomorphic god go together, and anthropomorphic god wants to conquer all other gods. The hearts of the people of Earth cannot be herded into one religion; it’s just not Ever going to happen, there will Never come a day when one religion has conquered them all. Moreover, the claim to the use of threats in religion, such as hell and eternal suffering, are born from ego religion. Ego religion attempts to save or make eternal some kind of bodily form; thus the fear of eternal hell and not making it to eternal heaven. Fear is the motivation of ego religion.
However, in truth Only God is eternal, and Eternal God (that which transcends all right Now) is Free of a body and Perfectly without the need of a body to exist. Fear mongering ministry is simply ego religion. It focuses on fear, uncertainty, doubt, what-if, and an inherent absence of Truth in the individual. Ego religion is a lie. Fear mongering is a dying breed of the ego based religions. The people of Earth are getting tired of this hate babble, and only those people that cling onto hate and seek power are left returning to these churches. Ego religion is in the business (making money and entertaining), and in the business of creating separation and otherness. Ego religion is working to save a body for some presumed eternal life or eternal world. Fear religion and the practice of converting people is actually the practice of forcing one’s own interpretation of God onto another, and whatever the preacher is doing in the church to the congregation, so to shall the congregation do unto those outside of the church. The (majority of the) congregation always mimics their preachers in life outside of the church. The children of hate, fear and darkness are taught from a teacher of hate, fear and darkness. Sometimes that teacher is oneself, and more often than not, that teacher is a preacher and/or political figure with a ministry of hate, separation, fear, domination, war, death and the total conquering of the world through their religious and/or political ideology.
God cannot be forced, and no one is turning to God by running in fear of the devil. The ministry of hell mongering is a ministry of fear, fear is contraction, and fear contraction is always into ego self. This is the way of the life of personal self (ego self), which is inherently a conscious feeling of separation, avoiding, and distancing one’s self from ‘others’. Furthermore, this conscious activity is at the heart of all ego religion; all religion that seeks to become something it believes it is not, separate from, and other than. The irony of ego religion is that God (Realized) demonstrates all are Truth inherent, no one is separate from Truth by any degree, and Truth remains Everlasting in the face of an ever changing idea of personal self. Truth transcends All religion, and Truth is free to be expressed in all people and cultures of love, peace, compassion, kindness, and integral spirituality. In the religions of hate, fear mongering, and holy war there is no Real God, just anthropomorphic god. Real God stops working when violence and hate start.
Fear mongering ministry keeps the congregation scared and in doubt unless you are an exact copy of them, and fear ministry is an arrogant ministry that always asserts its 'betterness' verses all other religions (which are claimed to be of the devil). Fear mongering ministry keeps the congregation in lock down by claiming all other religions are a path to hell. Truth ministry has Faith in God, not humans, and Faith in God allows a person to hear the Word of God without shoving it down a person’s throat. A Real preacher knows they are preaching to the children of Truth, and thus being humbled by Truth ItSelf, a real Integral preacher, one of Truth that transcends humanity’s self created limitations, keeps the congregation enlivened by that Direct Honesty of the Always Freely Available God, which is not bound or limited by anyone other than one self. All fear ministries Be crushed by the overwhelming shine of Eternal Love. Blessings.
It is almost impossible to find the Guru as one Self before one has realized Guru in another. This is not something that comes like the rest of the knowledge one may have 'gained' over a life time. Guru Is Heart Communion. Ask one self if there is a constant and literally overwhelming Heart surrender into the Divine One (total self/personal letting go) right Now. What is the evidence of this Heart Communion? It Always comes with a Real and Tangible perpetual bodily awakening and realization of heart-love-bliss.
Guru is the primary and principle function of the divine process of (whole bodily) Enbrightenment. Guru is useful only when a person is relating through heart communion. That is all. Guru sees unity, oneness and that person lives directly (moment to moment) out of the Divine Light, and the Guru does not notice this idea of more enlightened than another. Real Guru does not want people to follow them and/or worship them. Guru is an example of how Enbrightened we already Are. However, the ego falsely seeks Truth as if it is not Present, thus, the (delusional) idea of one person being more enbrightened than another.
Guru serves the devotee that is heart attracted by deepening that person’s Faith based self surrender into God (Eternal Light), which overcomes the individual’s false sense of self by the grace born baptism of Fire and Light that is realized through the Guru's bodily transmission. It is important to understand the full spiritual process in order to see how Guru serves the devotees of God. That process involves two principle aspects, which are self realization and the divine transformation of the body through the constant (purging fire) presence of realization. God is the only one that Is enlightened, and the function of Guru is to be a living, in your face demonstration, of the fulfillment of the divine process of whole bodily transformation. No one ever becomes enlightened; the personal sense of self is purged (the one seeking false enlightenment) so that Real Enbrightenment can take hold of the individual and live As the individual.
The Guru does not see anything more than itself. Ultimately, Guru is transcended in heart communion, which is something that does not belong to either bodily form, but is transcendent of bodily form. The only real way to understand Guru is through heart communion and the Guru's bodily transmission of realization, which is inherently beyond all words and always a direct reflection of the Gurus depth of realization. If a person is not living in such a steady-state of God realization and yet claim to have 'found' Guru within that person is simply lying to their self.
One problem people have with Guru is that they are afraid to love another person in the same way one loves God, so they abandon the idea of Guru because of fear of giving up oneself, the deep fear of not existing. Loving Guru As God is the only way one truly dives into the relationship of Guru and devotee. Realizing Guru in oneself takes the lesson of realizing Guru in another. With heart realization comes a tangible and always present heart-fire love-bliss (EVERYTIME). Realization (Divine Love) comes with Real bodily changes, and anyone that tells it does not is (deeply) wrong. Simply claiming to have found Guru within without ever Knowing Guru as another person usually (99% of the time) means a person has not actually awakened real heart communion with the Source of all Gurus. Have you loved another in the Same way as you love God? How can one discover real love for one self and not have that love expressed or realized with another person?
Not everyone is ready for the Guru. However, don't let the new age mumbo jumbo of being a teacher of your self (not needing Guru – Heart Communion with Guru) convince one’s self that Guru is a thing of the past. Guru in person cannot be replaced by ideas, thought patterns, patterns noticed in nature, and/or any kind of abstract non-tangible – non-physical vision or experience. Never forget Guru is a function of the true God Realization process within the individual. A person will not pass into the final stages of whole bodily surrender without realizing Guru. Go ahead and test my word. Guru is the most profound and powerful aspect of genuine spiritual life.
Any person claiming to be a Guru should offer heart communion, and the attraction to such a person should be grounded in heart communion. If a person claiming to be Guru is not tangibly transmitting realization, which is beyond words, in such a way that once entering into their company one instantly notices the ambient radiance of the Guru then that person is not serving as Guru. They might be serving people in other ways, but it is not As Guru. Find the love of God in Guru, and Guru and devotee will disappear in the Light of God.
Heart Communion with the Guru is the Way, all other practices are secondary. Many want to be their own teacher, but ego can only teach ego. This is why the Realizer is of the greatest importance; without heart communion the body/mind is just adding onto ego with more information and knowledge. Guru is a service; it depends on Heart Communion not knowledge. The mind is useless in relationship to Guru, and the mind gets in the way more than it helps in relationship to Guru; mind is not Silence, and mind cannot become Silence.
There are plenty of people that think they are realized or teachers and Gurus, but all they have to teach is words, knowledge, and these kinds of people play dharma games as if they are enlightened. Self realization is the foundation of spiritual growth, and once self realization dawns then a real spiritual practice can begin, but not until then. It is like a fetus trying to describe what it is like as an adult; total nonsense. Self realization does not mean a person should be a Guru or serve in the role of Guru, and the (True) Guru is more than Self Realized, that one is whole bodily realized. The Guru's bodily form is radiant, and the Guru's bodily form is transmitting the Guru's very same steady-state of realization. Spiritual life is more than Self realization; it is whole bodily Realization, and whole Reality Realization. Realization is not a feeling of expansion or oneness, those are results of the point of view (feeling of ‘me’) perceiving a bodily separative relationship with (universal) consciousness (that seems to feel like it is beyond the body and mind). In other words, in the beginning a person may feel consciousness expand beyond the body, but that feeling of expansion is solely related the contraction of ego self. That feeling of expansion beyond the personal self (beyond the bodily feeling of ‘me’) is barely even a beginning in Spiritual life; it is simply a short experience of that which Is Inherently and Perpetually Already Beyond the body.
How can a person notice and commune with their own self (bodily state)? If the Guru was not necessary the streets would be filled with Realizers. The world is already in communion with ego, thus, ego gives way to more ego, and in the absence of whole bodily Realization (total Realization of the Spiritual Cross) the Divine Transcendent Transmission of Eternal Consciousness cannot be noticed, acknowledged, and ultimately Identified As. Everyone transmits their own self state, thus, to imagine oneself as one’s own teacher is nonsensical: that one will never move beyond their own disposition. You can’t read, think, or imagine your way to Realization; it requires self surrender into one that has already Realized.
How many (Gurus) are actually bodily realized? How many have truly entered the divine fire of transformation and surrendered the whole body/mind unto the divine eternal Light, and passed through the whole ordeal of the complete bodily Spiritual Awakening Process of Realization? How many of these so called teachers and gurus Transmit what is beyond the whole esoteric anatomy (Spiritual Cross), which requires one to have already passed through the whole process of Awakening the esoteric anatomy (Spiritual Cross)? In these modern times there are way too many 'chiefs' and not enough 'indians'. Furthermore, this kind of be your own teacher mentality is strong in the west because of the anti-authority culture (rebellious), and the rejection of parental guidance. Then when a person with this kind of mentality turns to Know Self they think, 'hey, I can be my own teacher'. Moreover, it is easy to think this when society and culture at large reject the Guru~devotee relationship and/or have never practiced this or observed such a practice in action.
Guru in the west is a taboo, and part of this reason is because the dominance of Christianity in the west, which (currently) lacks a real and clear understanding of the Guru~devotee relationship. There are good reasons for people to be reserved such as abusive teachers and so forth, but total rejection is not necessary nor can such rejection be subsidized by being your own teacher. People have to use heart communion awareness in order to find the right Guru, and without Heart~Fire Communion with a Guru there is no real spiritual growth, just more data and knowledge added to ego (personal self). Experiences of the kundalini, the Eye, the crown light above the head, and/or awareness of the (center) heart chakra (even the left or right heart of the esoteric anatomy) or any other experience within the esoteric anatomy of consciousness (Spiritual Cross) does not equal Realization, and not one of those experiences mean a person is realized. Realization is transcendent of the esoteric anatomy yet Realization is lived bodily through the esoteric anatomy. The esoteric anatomy of the individual is designed for God’s Light of Consciousness to function and live through, it (esoteric anatomy = Spiritual Cross) is not there for a personal feeling of ‘me’ to use for enlightenment.
The whole idea of 'me' is nothing in the Presence of the Divine. Does being a teacher of oneself mean that one's self becomes enlightened or realized? Nope, being a teacher of oneself simply means one has not discovered Guru, heart communion with Guru, and that one is still in seeking mode, not living from the state of Realization. Real heart communion with a Guru progressively ends the mode of seeking enlightenment and realization. Realization is transcendent of the body, and Realization is not in need of the body, and Realization simply sees all possible worlds, bodies and places as the activity of Realization. Realization is Reality's Realization, and Reality's Realization is what the body/mind must become open to (not personal self realization), which requires ego death. Thus, Guru (true Guru is not only Self Realized, they are whole bodily Realized and whole bodily transparent unto the Divine Eternal Light of Everlasting Consciousness) serves the devotee of God, which is a devotee of the one and only Divine Realization of Reality, by literally and tangibly Transmitting the Divine Transcendent Steady-State of Reality ItSelf unto the devotees of the Guru. With recognition comes the Gift.
A person never out grows the need for a relationship with a genuine heart Realizer; instead, the relationship of the devotee and Guru progressively dissolves all questions, doubts, and hierarchical associations between the Guru and devotee until there is absolute and perfect Oneness beyond the appearances of the bodily forms of the devotee and Guru. Truly, as a person grows in heart communion with the Guru all ideas of separation, subordination and otherness evaporate. Ego is the only kind of mentality watching for enlightenment, seeking enlightenment, and rejecting self surrender into the Overwhelming Light. Ego is the only kind of mentality that judges whether or not Guru is valuable, and the ego is the only mentality that believes it can teach itself out of itself. Without True Heart Communion, and without Real Self Realization the constant and reoccurring activity of 'me' (false sense of self), the body/mind will always be in the business of rejecting and attaching, seeking and searching through life, but never Transcending it self. Ego cannot transcend it self, ego is bound and limited to ego self, and the Guru truly provides the living demonstration and transmission that move the individual from ego life unto a life filled with God Only. Until there is Actual and Real Heart Communion the idea of Guru will be an idea of Guru and nothing more.
Do you notice the feeling of 'me'ness? This is the source of your seeking and searching, and it is the reason most religions (especially in the west) have the idea of saving something and that ‘something’ (popular culture may call it the soul or spirit) is apparently (currently) separate and other than God, but somehow through certain beliefs or dogmas (through religion) finds unity with God. And, the real root of darkness is the (false) belief that one is somehow separate from Truth and God; as if one is not Already Eternal and Infinite. Conventional religions teach people to unite and become one, but we Are Already United and One. Thus, the conventional religions are teaching people to continue to ‘miss the mark’ (sin) by seeking what you Already Are.
This is an illusion, and there is nothing created that is eternal (NOTHING); God Only Is Eternal - That which is Transcendent of All worlds, heavens and hells. Therefore, all attempts to save something from eternal hell or send that separate identity (other than God) to eternal heaven to 'hangout' with God (family and friends) forever are pointless and useless. These kinds of ideas do not serve the True Process of ego death; they only serve to ‘solidify’ the feeling of ‘me’. None of those teachings have anything to do with Truth, God and the Real process of catalyzing Spiritual life.
The root of the 'me' is simply an activity of the body/mind, something that is unnecessary, and most people are in the business of feeling this 'me'ness and trying to save it from hell, and/or in the process of making that 'me'ness eternal.
True Self is Divine Light, and once you learn to start each moment from the Light of Truth, and live in and of the Source of All, the Real Divine Processes of Spiritual life can begin to take hold and make the necessary changes in the body/mind that support the Divine Light of Consciousness Only. We Are Light first, then the world and all the stuff of it seems to appear. This is a moment to moment Realization that is unending and ongoing perpetually because it is the Eternal Steady-State of Reality ItSelf. The Brightness of God's Eternal Face is where we All start and finish, but it is the in-between feeling associated with a bodily form that leads to all these religions of saving oneself from hell or saving oneself for heaven.
True God Realization is born from the lack of a bodily 'me', and the total assimilation of the body/mind through the Divine Bright/Light of God is what happens to the human form with the death and/or transcending process of ego. This does not mean one opens the body/mind up to other feelings of ‘me’, angels or even dark spirits. The Divine Realization demonstrates that all forms of bodily consciousness are destined to be possessed by and through the Divine Presence of the Holy One. Many people that are bound to the idea of a separate identity always associate with other 'spiritual' persons as a separate identity and a separate consciousness, thus, some may even claim to channel or become possessed by other identities, but, if they were Possessed by God Only the ideas of channeling and being possessed by another disappear.
Truly and Deeply Self Realization is the Foundation of all spiritual growth and realization; the unique 'me' Never becomes Enbrightened or Eternal or Infinite, and the personal feeling of 'me' Never becomes anything. In the absence of real bodily Self Realization there is only doubt and confusion and some kind of motivation to preserve something that literally never lives. Most religions are irony at best, with only tail chasing scenarios to satisfy the ego bound masses.
The body/mind has been a slave to ego 'me' pretty much all of one's life, and the ego self has assimilated the body/mind to serve the reiteration of the self created and self accepted idea of 'me'. Thus, this is the root of what needs to be gone beyond, and this is the core of what is 'preventing' the body/mind from Living True Life from the Source Only.
Real spiritual life is about Realizing what is Eternally Transcendent of the activity of 'me' and allowing the Divine Presence of Existence (that which is eternally Transcendent of all) to Overwhelm the individual and Demonstrate ItSelf As both the individual and the Reality world of the individual. ‘Me’ness is nothingness; and all forms of ‘me’ appear Only in the midst/context of activity and Never in the Silence. To understand these teachings one must turn to the Divine and Be Satisfied with the Very Same Satisfaction of God’s Eternal State of Being; thus, you (the body/mind) Must Realize and Be Satisfied with God’s Eternal Satisfaction Only; all other forms of ‘satisfaction’ are temporary.
All attempts to live an eternal bodily life are born from the ‘me’, and Any religion that teaches people to save some kind of otherness from hell or send that uniquely created ‘me’ to heaven are in vain. God Is the ONLY Reality that Transcends all heavens and hells, and God Over Shines All As the One and Only Real Eternal Being. Hand over the feeling ‘me’ to God’s Divine Brightness and be freed of the illusions of a false sense of self. Blessings.
Hold your breath; the body will breathe again on its own if you pass out. The ego believes it is the mind and the body, and the ego believes this because it has influence regarding both activities. But, when a person passes out from holding their breath the body takes over in the absence of ego and continues to breathe and live. So, who is Really alive; the ego (self created idea of ‘me’) or the Silence that persists when ego is absent, dead or dying?
The ego sort of works like this; a person clings onto this activity of 'me', but in every moment the Silence of God always persists as the reality prior to the activity of ego, and the Silence seems to never go away. Therefore, the ego engages in the constant reiteration of mind activity; a perpetual turning to any and all activity of the mind. If one wants to break the habit of ego that one should become comfortable with Silence, the Silence of the Now, the Eternal Silence of God, and the Silence that is present in consciousness before one begins to think, after one stops thinking, and in between every thought.
The ego is never comfortable in Silence because it (ego) does not exist in the absence of activity. Ego runs from Silence by only accepting activity as comfort. Use the mind, Realize what is already Transcendent of mind, but don't become engulfed by it. Eternal you is Transcendent of mind, and Real you is more present in Silence than in any activity of the mind. Ego can only survive moment to moment if the individual does not learn to be truly Comfortable in Real and Genuine Silence, which is how one begins to Notice, Acknowledge, and Ultimately Identify As the Unbroken Silence of God's Perfect Indestructible Light.
Keeping the mind filled with activity is a fear based state of being. I have heard people say an empty mind is the devil's playground. But, I suggest looking at this differently. An empty mind is no mind, and the place of Silence. In Silence we can listen to God's voice (which is Oneness, Love-bliss, Light, Heart~Fire, and Eternal Peace), but with an active mind we can only hear our-selves and the world. When practicing meditation pay attention to the Silence, allow the mind to pass by like clouds in the sky, and take rest from the weary life of ego. If one treats the mind like clouds in the sky (like weather, which only last for a while before it changes) that one will not become engulfed by the mind. No one can reach up and pull down a cloud, no one can hold clouds in their hands, and a cloud is simply left to be what it is without Any attempt to change or force the cloud(s) to leave or go away.
By letting the mind simply be that person will let the mind simply settle down and make Way for prolonged Silence, which is Where Real Comfort Exists. This can start in meditation and become something that remains with one throughout the day, night, and even in dreams and non-dream sleep. More importantly, the Guru (one that demonstrates the Realization of Eternal Silence) is one in whom another individual can Awaken to Heart Communion, and then that person begins to Really understand the Value of Guru, but not until Real and Genuine and Tangible Heart Communion is Realized with the Guru.
On the contrary, an active mind is the devil's playground, it is a mind possessed of itself, it is a mind that is constantly seeking activity to feel comfortable, and evil and darkness love an active mind because it can easily slip dark and evil thought patterns into an already endless stream of mind stuff appearing within the individual. An active mind is totally under the influence of whatever appears in the mind. Thus, an active mind is where the darkness and evil of the world can become influential and persuasive. When God’s Silent Presence is rejected for the comfort of an active mind the conditions for evil to influence are primed and ready. Be possessed by the Great Silence of Consciousness (which Transcends ego), be Comfortable in the Eternal Silence of Existence/God, and take refuge from the mind in the Silence that Is Perpetually before any and all mind.
I painted this in 2007.
I Am the Burning Light here As a Living Fire in whom all may find Heart Communion and Heart~Fire. It is my destiny to serve in such a way. You, or anyone, never has to meet me in person, no one has to come and hang out with me in order to Discover my Presence As the Burning Light of the Holy Transfiguring/Consuming Fire of God. This relationship with me is a gift, it is something that stays with a person, it is the kind of gift that is always at hand and always free. The Burning Light does not belong to Jared, this-one only Serves as a Living Function of the Burning Light, and this is my destiny and my (Spiritual) Value to one and all.
Some may not have noticed Achala~Da Fire, which is a name that describes my role as Guru, or more correctly my role As the Immovable Fire of God that will purge All that find rest and peace with this Communion, which is a living practice of sacrifice of ego unto the alter of God's Divine and Everlasting Transcendental Transforming Fire. I Am Achala~Da Fire alive for your Awakening, to be a Shining Light, to Be (another) Light in a sky of darkness, and to aide in the total and collaborative spiritual Awakening of All. I am not here to establish a one world religion or to take religion away, this-one is here to bring new traditions and a loud voice that is crying out in the utter death and darkness that has become the caner of the people of Earth. Realize Heart~Fire Communion with me (this-one), Notice the Happiness in my eyes, Feel into the unified field of consciousness that bridges us, and take Ownership of the One that appears in our Shared Heart in God. See me, then See beyond, and finally See your Very Own Self As Me. Blessings.
The Core of Realization is the ground and foundation of all Realization. It (God’s Realization – Enbrightenment) is the Eternal and Everlasting Perpetual and Ongoing steady-state of Being or the quality of Reality and Self that is continuous from moment to moment. The Heart of all Realization is grounded in the Free Steady-State of God, and the Core~Realization of Enbrightenment is discovered to exist Freely As It Is regardless of any and all appearances of existence; both heaven and hell are formed from The~Only Realization of God, and even heaven and hell will whole worldly return unto the Eternal Transcendent One. No matter what bodily form an individual is appearing within the Depth and Infinitude of Realization is present As Its greatest possible intensity, Always Now.
Existence appears in all sorts of ways, and the appearance may seem to hide the Core of existence and reality but that is simply an illusion. Regardless of world (all forms of possible existence) the Core of Realization is naked and naturally ‘what already Is’. Realization can progressively dawn As it always Is within and through an individual, and the individual can and should be totally transformed by Realization, but Realization is not entrapped or locked up in the bodily form, in any bodily form. Erase all forms of worldly appearances from reality/existence and what is left when ALL has disappeared Is Realization (Pristine Consciousness), and this is the Core of Realization, the ground of Realization and the Source for any and all (temporary) bodily realizations and all realizations of the ever changing states of consciousness bodily or otherwise.
The way God’s Realization works is that IT dawns and transforms the individual from the ground of all Realization. Thus, when people first turn to God with perfect faith it seems like God’s presence is not Powerfully Instant and not Immediately available. An individual’s immediate power of faith (for those just discovering God’s Reality) clears the years of self possession and self obsession in an instant (although not permanently) from the flood gates of Divine consciousness. Faith gives the individual an opportunity to ‘tap’ into the Source of Truth freely, and to enable the individual to freely take refuge in (Naked – Fully~Exposed) Truth instantly and immediately. So, via the individual’s humble (self transcending) moment to moment devotion to Truth the everlasting power of Realization’s (Truth’s/God’s) Reality Presence begins the divine process of being totally transfigured and transformed throughout the entire body and mind and soul by the One and Only Divine Realization of God (Enbrightenment).
Each person progresses through a truly divine process wherein God’s One and Only Realization makes the necessary bodily changes that solely and singularly support the Free abundance of the Divine Realization, which pours forth from the Eternal life and conscious existence of God’s Happiness. It is the individual’s responsibility to turn over all individuality to allow the One and Only Happiness to live without limitation, resistance, and/or activity of fear and contraction appearing within the context of the life of an individual. In other words, the sum-total of what it means to be an individual has to be handed over to the Divine One in order for individuality to express its True Form and True Freedom from the Core of Realization freely moment to moment. The process of True Spirituality is a process wherein the One and Only True~Realization of God progressively shines freely in, as and through the individual (and ultimately the collective). There are layers of individuality, and each layer (bodily form) is to be totally purged of the activity of ego (the living state of unhappiness) as if (which is Actually True) the Core of Realization was not covered, hidden, and/or eclipsed by whatever is appearing.
Realization does not make pain end, it does not make suffering of the body/mind disappear, and Realization does not make the body/mind useless or a waste. Instead, Realization for those that are living Perfect Faith (which involves total surrender to God’s will in ALL possible moments) views the body/mind as Its Very Own Self; thus, once Realization has truly and deeply dawned for the individual even the body/flesh is made to Serve the Divine Light of Happiness perfectly through the Core of Realization. Nothing of individuality is left untouched by God’s Realization, and nothing short of absolute and total turning over of what it means to be individual should be offered to God’s Realization.
The final trick of ego (or unhappiness) is to convince the individual that at least some kind of ego needed to live safely in the world. But, not even a tiny bit of ego is needed to protect the body/mind and this is because God Is Fully Capable of Living the individual in ALL forms of life, even crossing the street, wiping the butt, and smelling flowers; in ALL these moments the Core of Realization is Naked and Freely Exposed. Ego is not needed anywhere in life, and ego has nothing to do with Realization. Perfect Faith in God’s will for the individual’s life is needed to prevent the body/mind from hiding parts of self from the purging Fires of God’s Core Realization. Fear of the emptiness of ego (and/or doubt of God’s Single and Sole Presence of Existence) can lead an individual to believe and/or think that if they surrender all to God that God will not Know what to do with the individual, and that God will blindly walk out into traffic or something worse.
Ego is the only form of personal/individual identity that denies and ignores the Truth of the Core of Realization, ‘what already Is – what is inherently present’, and ego is in the business of rejecting what is Open, Naked, and Freely Exposed perpetually in the Now for an imagined future or an imagined past, of which neither really exists right Now. Ego does not understand what it means to simply Be, ego is clueless about the immediacy of The~Now, the ‘undecorated/unlabeled/un-named’ Presence of Now is something ego fights against, and ego is never Happy with a life absent of seeking; thus, ego dreams up every imaginable way to hold onto a life that is inherently in a state of current death, not a state of perpetual Life, like the Core of Realization Always Is.
Pain does not equal unhappiness. One can be in great pain and still be completely happy. Do not let your suffering undermine your inherent happiness. Happiness is not conditional, and nothing of life is capable of moment to moment happiness that can't be taken away. Happiness comes with knowing who you Are (which is a constant and ongoing awareness of self - the truth of who you/we Are), and not with knowing what you have gained, earned or achieved in life or through the possibilities of life. Those that know who they Are can live in the midst of bodily suffering and never lose self, truth, and happiness. Truth is the glory of your/our self, and even though the flesh and the body are subject to change and decay, we are made of the eternal One, which is transcendent of (beyond) all.
Truth, Eternal Truth, can be realized Now, and Really Only Now. The body/mind is living in a Reality (God based Reality) in which the everlasting life of happiness is freely available to any and all conscious beings in every moment of their existence. The steady-state of the underlying substance of the universe thrives in happiness; it is a free presence full of life, a life that is born in transcendent consciousness. All that is, is appearing from the source of happiness.
What is happiness, Really? Well, happiness is a life free of change (want to change), free of limitations (free of a body – yet bodily aware), and happiness is the presence of consciousness that is satisfaction in and of ItSelf. Happiness is a steady-state of existence that is inherently satisfied with ItSelf as It perpetually Is (moment to moment) without Any desire, urge, or motivation to seek anything, anyone, and/or any place to exist in, as or through. Ego is into seeking and searching for happiness, but all it finds is temporary and always decaying pseudo forms of happiness; the kind of happiness that requires certain conditions to exist or that temporary happiness vanishes instantly, and as conditions inevitably change and mutate and repeat cycles so must the activity of the individual in order to keep or maintain the experience of ‘happiness’ (I am only referring to temporary happiness as something that can be achieved and/or gained in life).
Faith provides those that are freshly coming to life through devotion to God with inherent freedom to discover rest and peace from the ever changing way of bodily life. The Perfect Realization of God involves a Realization that is not dependent on any bodily form to be Known, yet, the body, mind, and soul become completely saturated with the Divine Conscious life of God’s (beyond beyond) Free Happiness. Real Happiness transcends all worldly appearances, sufferings, and pains, albeit, Real Happiness freely exists As the natural steady-state of simply Being for the individual (and collective).
The fulfillment of life, the purpose of life, and the meaning of life all come from the Realization of Reality/God Happiness, and the qualities of Realized happiness are love, compassion, kindness, care, and the practice of these qualities in all relationships. Realize the quality of self that lasts forever, and in the realization one loses the attachment to a false sense of self. The old false self takes time to purge, but with devotion to truth and understanding of happiness comes the awakening of whole bodily happiness, even whole reality happiness. God’s Happiness is perfectly free of ego (unhappiness), and there is nothing that has ever existed which was able to prevent Happiness. Blessings.
