Appearances of the Heart

Some people live closely guarded lives, fearful of encountering someone or something that might shatter their insecure spiritual foundation. This attitude, however, is not the fault of religion but of their own limited understanding. True Dharma leads in exactly the opposite direction. It enables one to integrate all the many diverse experiences of life into a meaningful and coherent whole, thereby banishing fear and insecurity completely. ~Lama Thubten Yeshe, “Wisdom Energy”

There are many who claim to be accelerated on the evolutionary path to enlightenment who parade around in a sheath of spiritual ego full of self-aggrandizement. Their attention is anchored with concern over how they appear to others and thus, they exaggerate their own importance, power, and reputation masking their inadequacies under the guise of love and compassion. With a need to secure false personal power in the eyes of others to appear expert on matters that elude them, their emotional bodies are easily thrown off balance and threatened when their thoughts and ideals are questioned and processes examined. Quick to mask their overcompensations from feelings of self-doubt, inadequacy, or victimhood, they react with quick emotional force. Taking things personally, with a swift wave of the hand they judge and dismiss differing perspectives and approaches of others on the path. Be weary of such manipulations. Discernment is needed here. The hallmark of a true initiate is non-attachment and clearly unconcerned with others emotional positions, as they are steadfast upon bridging inner and outer connections on many levels and to transmit that synthetic union to others through world service. Their lower bodies are aligned and integrated with a focus on living a more Soul infused reality as the expressive link in consciousness.

While the spiritual egoist espouses to tout the law of love, they miss the mark and project onto others a love-less vibrational state de-spiriting those in their chain of connection. These characters having reached a small measure of congruency between what they think, feel, say, and do, and their uncontrolled emotional bodies ever lead them astray. Emotional reactivity leads to imbalanced thought. Imbalanced thought creates a whole new set of frequency patterns.

While to err is to be human, it is most wise to take personal responsibility to grow and make better when it is due. Halting judgment and embracing another’s ways of being is a good place to start. With finger-pointing fear based approaches, many refuse to own their projections lost in their own demagoguery. The virtues of humility, trust and the integrity of simultaneous interplay between teacher/student as a co-creative experience, is lost to their desire for guru-hood. Overriding true wisdom and halting acceleration, is the ever-common failure of the Path Seeker to control the emotional body into a calm sea of glass.

I have extracted and revised a piece of my work, “The Seven Attributes of Heart” to express the many evolving layers of heart consciousness that differ only by degree of vibration that is discernable as our level of awareness rises.

A selfish heart functions from conditioned logical responses, while the emotions are a continuous shifting of moods and sentiments wrapped into the self. A desirous heart is concerned with sense gratification and is motivated by that which brings pleasure. An egoic heart, pride and vanity plays an important role so that others may fall in love with the mask perceived as Self. Misidentification further thickens the veil of glamour and illusion. A compassionate heart stimulates the innate potential for healing and through the path of selfless service, love flows gracefully and lovingly brings calm and influence upon others. A listening heart is a self-aware organized consciousness of integrated perceptions between inner and outer worlds, open to the channels of knowledge and illumination. A wise heart perceives a world of differing forces that must congeal into a unified whole if there is ever to be systemic harmony. Virtuous, without distortion of any kind, the tide of beingness is in rhythm with an undifferentiated Kosmic awareness. A spiritual heart recognizes the essential unity in all things and merges with supreme consciousness with reflection in the Kosmic self.

Like a huge mirror our ability to govern the law of our own being always operates in accordance with our actions. We must come to realize that we each are responsible for our own happiness and our own misery chained by the instinctive forces that enslave us. We must move beyond these forces into self-mastery by using the gifts with which we are endowed to promote our inner ideal. Each day we can overcome the effect of our selfish hearts and brackish deeds if we act wisely by evolving our hearts vibration to more inclusive values. This leads us to live a noble life with potential to change the world.

You Are How you Vibrate Part 2~ Creating Coherence

AlisaatPort(1)
“Spirituality is a lens through which we view life  and a gauge by which we evaluate it.” ~Elder Dallin H. Oaks

How we manage our energies through our feeling states, breath, language and the stories of our bodies determines our level of sensitivity or capacity for assimilation of the global life energies around us. Natural senses are part of life’s nonverbal communication system that endows us with inner balance, clarity, and enthusiasm. It is how Nature connects and communicates (communes) with other life residents.

Whole-self wellbeing, alignment of the Body-Heart-Mind-Spirit organism, is essentially the result of harmonious vibration in the energetic flow between Nature Intelligence and the Kosmic circuit. The reciprocity of this nurturing and balancing energy exchange awakens our senses onto our screen of consciousness that Natural intelligence loved us to Be. We are often surprised that there is a mutual benefit of cooperative experience when our consciousness is in tact with Nature intelligence. We further discover that the unity that results from the interconnection of these natural attraction forces validates that “Love is the only reality of the world because it is All.” The vibrational evolution of the Kosmos, the co-evolutionary pathway between Earth and the human psyche as part Nature is ever expanding with the Whole in the Now moment of incarnation. If we are to expand our vibration that is the vast interconnectedness of sentient global life, we must embrace a psychology that identifies Spirit and Nature as a singular relationship.

Inner congruency within self (what we think, feel, say and do) and self in relation to global life produces alignment that magnetizes the physical and non-physical realities to interface. This attraction calls to us Kosmic coincidence to awaken our creative Soul potential on Earth.

For instance, our seed thoughts, feelings, and words (sound) are a vibrational mix of information of the Now moment that creates a resonance to match it by stimulating the etheric forces to activate a response – our intent into a living, creative, earthbound existence. Matrices of like vibration become attractive forces for one another and entrain to create either coherence or dissonance within our Being.

Yet, if we zone out instead, tranquilize in delusion, suffering, negative emotion, selfish ideas, and desires take root because the physical self and the non-physical self are not merged within the same space-time continuum. There is no bridge, no congruency. The inability to merge with the nature within and the nature without produces bifurcation, a split in consciousness in the recognition of the unified Self and with all Life. Lack of interface between the ego personality and the higher self as Soul always maintains separateness fostering the illusion that we are alone, unloved and even unworthy to be alive. We are in fact never alone, we are Loved and absolutely worthy to exist.

While the wisdom of Nature is love, social constructs are organized to divest this wisdom of Nature innate in the human psyche by distracting us from the present, the spontaneity of the Now moment – the “living bridge” between the past and the future. This social control pattern is easily recognizable throughout the ages, especially with advancement into the technological age, where we are lured in to identify with and rely on external objects to think for us. These technological appendages dull the super computer brain and sensory apparatus into vibrational light code lock down. Any time we attach our thoughts to identify with Nature separated thinking we stand apart from our inherent Self and isolate ourselves from the whole of life. Instead, we hide within the walls of social media, fake news, excessive indoor living, and adopt addictive strategies as we step into error to experience the adverse effects of those directive scripts. Raising our vibrations requires that we bypass those constructs that derail us.

Paying attention to cultures stressful complexities of how to manage life through disconnected stories about life rather than participating in life, is like watching reality TV all day and saying you lived. The cultural learning process that deconstructs the natural born human as part of nature from Nature is not a teaching of the human Soul, rather it is a destructive directive script that teaches us through rational thinking to build walls and hide from our consciousness, our natural integrity within Nature and the blessings born from our connection. For over 50,000 years, nature connected people lived harmoniously with each other and the land because they gained consent from Nature to survive. In a world of social decay and environmental collapse, it is time to reclaim our humanity and reconnect with our origins in Nature so that we may survive as a species onward and organize to nurture Natures supportive ways.

The authentic reality is that our eternal non-physical self is always in high vibration and since the Soul is the human standard of our inner striving, we must align and keep steady to that signal of the expanded version of ourselves. Thinking high in spiritual aspiration and ideals—where the Law of Life magnetizes to us what we are thinking and then brings to pass more of the same is how we deliberately create our reality. The choice is solely ours. Through our sensory body, we manufacture positive streams of vibration or negative streams of vibration to attract those imaginings into Earth reality.

To strive toward the higher standard of the Soul, we must first have a self-loving willingness to align with the higher vibrational aspect of ourselves because in order to change lower energy that densifies our negative experiences, we must potentate a higher energy to transform it. This means that intent with the motivation or enthusiasm for life must underlie our caring how we feel in our bodies. We must intend to love Self enough to warrant feeling good all the time, without excuse or negotiation. Without the self-preservation of the pleasure bond that engages with the global life streaming that is love, distress would subvert the way via the pleasure principle of substitutes. This survival mechanism innate to the stirrings of our Soul and Nature knows that we have to love to feel good. Feeling good produces a pleasurable exuberance for life, which becomes our natural state of Being. The feeling state of exuberance helps us to cultivate body wisdom as an ally to higher manifestations and multisensory capacity amplified through Nature-Spirit connection.

Our feeling states both positive and negative offer great teachings as a way to correct our errors. The negative feeling vibration of resistance is a vital warning signal that something is out of integrity – out of flow in our stream of wellbeing. Divisiveness is always an indicator for reorientation toward unity. Bad feelings offer us an opportunity to align Self with the empathic center of Unity – Soul wisdom. With the feeling center positively focused, we move closer to our inner stream of wellbeing – congruency with the pure positive energy of the Soul’s range of vibration.

Until we can find feeling balance in the giving and receiving of the Kosmic circuit, we need lots of practice. Otherwise, our high vibrational inner being will not join, but will lower or drop down into the denser or negative vibration of the ego personality dramas. The more we practice aligning and keeping steady to the signal of wellbeing we discover a whole range of responses and get a “sense” of things. Our senses begin to navigate the complexities of how these innate feeling signals work in our body with great proficiency. We discover that “Assimilation through resonance” occurs when we experience the “feeling” of letting go. Letting go or surrendering is most pivotal in releasing a whole range of sensations that produce negative charges in the nervous system. Striving for the feeling of non-attachment to resistance, allows empathic life energy to flow through us endowing us with its intelligence.

Empathic Relations Series You With You

“There is only one relationship: you with you.
When you get that one right you can attract all the other relationships you choose.” ~The Group

It is all about you. You with you. The vibrational relationship between the inner authentic you, source creation the inner male and female creative spiritual energies, with the outer you as the personality mask you wear in the world. The distance between the two – the authentic self and the mask, is the amount of happiness or discord in your life. Feelings are ever the barometer to measure your alignment along that continuum. The goal is to close the distance in the gap, to synthesize all expressions into a functioning unit of inner organization that is an authentic expression of the essential Self and then lose your self as that identity into Being. In that Being, reflect that Love to others in a beautiful way to the point that they can see their best in you.

As energy beings whatever is done, is done to self first. Within the variances of the human collective, there are some that have more work to do than others in way of release and development, but no matter where you are in life, inner cultivation is open to you because even you can love yourself a little more. Since the kind of love you have for yourself is what you most want from another, it is wise to love and appreciate self first in order to magnetize a partner who loves and appreciates you. But, first you must partner with yourself.

In the self loving process you must seek to reorient your perceptions regarding yourself and the male/female in truth, rather than in myth. This calls for a release in attachments of co-dependencies; addictions and any hindering vestiges of the past; the embracing of your inner masculine and feminine selves; and finally a developed sense of control over physical impulses (self-discipline) and emotional reactivity(self-containment) before you can ever attempt to have a healthy soul conscious relationship with another person on an intimate level. A coherent identity is the requisite for self-sovereignty – mastering the self by correcting our errors – our misalignments. These are requisites that comprise an immutable process that flows and gains momentum when your heart is open. A receptive heart cannot occur until you embrace yourself wholeheartedly of everything that you feel, that you are and are not. This enables you to know what you can legitimately give and what you want from others. You are the tableau upon which your desires grow.

When you are clear about what you want and can give, you are then equipped to take steps to make your desires possible. With the commitment of keeping your heart center open and flowing, with intention, firm boundaries and spiritual discernment, discipline and persistence, you move to a new level of being that is necessary before you can soundly experiment with power differentials. Exploring and expanding such possibilities play out as a respect for differences in the context of equality – that of parity in the union of opposites in partnering with yourself.

Healing Alignment: Unity starts with self and extends to relationships and merging with others forming community . “As within, so Without!” We are social beings and staying connected to others is critical for good health. Social isolation, in fact, has been linked to high blood pressure, reduced immunity, and higher rates of dementia. So stay in touch–or get back in touch–with the family or friends who make you feel good. And push through any resistance to reaching out and forming new connections–it’s worth it!

To create right community based partnerships there must be unity with or community by clearing the disunity patterns at the cause of discord in the dance of life. The aberrations of society always reflect individual states of mind and together these form the social dis-eases that plague us. Individually, we each contribute to the collective malaise when divisive orientations and fractured thinking within the psyche are not processed.
