Here’s spiritual near-truth# 4: We carry forward (good/bad) karma

There exists no debit-credit account from the past. If we can recognize that there exists no linear time, and so no past or future, only (moments of) an eternal Now, we can see there can be no such thing as an account from the past that carries forward. And certainly no Accountant keeping tabs 🙂

Since our manifest experience is created in the Now as a projection of our consciousness, what we experience as karma in the manifest is simply that which we habitually project into a materialized / experiential reality. One could say that in the very moment a certain thought is projected, its immediate impression/mark on our own conditioned identity is the karma. We are bound in the manifest to experience its echo, but there’s no reality or substance to the echo! So, karma is a habit pattern of thought, a conditioning, which we are continuing to practice in every moment of the eternal Now, and thereby projecting a particular kind of manifestation repeatedly.

Here’s spiritual near-truth #3: “The Universe shows me the way…”
Alternative: “Life reveals to me that…”

The universe (or life) doesn’t exist separate from Self. As a mirror of consciousness, the universe neither exists as a separate entity, nor in itself can message us, guide us, reveal anything to us, or show us the way. When we experience synchronicity and signs in the phenomenal experience of the manifest, what we are experiencing is simply the mirroring of consciousness, the guidance of Self — i.e., Self-reflection. Akin to experiencing déjà vu, synchronicity implies we are in a moment of complete alignment (with little resistance), so what was active in our consciousness was instantly seen / experienced in the manifest.

Here’s spiritual near-truth #2: Everything happens for a reason.

There’s no reason for anything happening, as in ultimate reality, nothing is happening 🙂 But to understand it within the realm of manifest experience: There’s always only ONE “reason” anything is happening — it is an exact and accurate reflection of the consciousness to which we are attuned. We experience (create) “reality” exactly as we are, Now. (In the image of both our desires and our fears, whether or not we are conscious of our habitual patterning.)

We don’t look in the mirror and believe there’s a another person out there. (I.e. nothing is happening out there and nothing exists separate from us.) We look in the mirror and recognize that if we want the person in the reflection to look different, a shift is required “on this end.” We don’t start fixing the image in the mirror. And there’s no big reason for why our hair looks the way it does, except that we brushed it that way! So also, our experienced reality is exactly how we are in consciousness.  (more…)

When there is alignment (in Self), intention falls away. What is intended in universal wholeness simply happens (through us).

We recognize this in moments in which something someone says or does feels so, so kind, when all the while they aren’t trying to be so. They are simply being the way they are being, and we experience kindness in all its intensity and all its subtlety, all at once.

In these moments, there is no doer, or done unto. There is only kindness.

(in each moment)
one’s calling lies
not in what one is doing to help
but in what one cannot help
doing
in this non-trying
in this non-doing
all is done
and all are helped

When we are One with all that is, the paradox is that “your pain is my pain” calls not for solving your pain, but for dis-solving mine!

How so?

When we are One with all that is, we simultaneously realize that the entire play underlying The One ‘differentiated as many’ is to lovingly allow unique experiences through which to recognize and realize Oneness. In truly, lovingly, unconditionally honoring the sovereignty in (and wish for) differentiated experience, it isn’t for (an identity of) “me” to take on another’s unique experience — however ‘good’ or ‘bad’ — and make it mine (in the name of empathy or compassion or unity as solidarity), and then make a mission out of it in any way — whether as fan or savior. It is only for me to allow for every kind of experience, and be there, in Love, should it arise within my physical field of experience. If I’m triggered into sensational excitement or suffering in response to another’s unique experience (‘good’ or ‘bad’), it is an opportunity for me to see that I am identified (attached) with them / that experience in some way, and use it as a clue, a window to look within. The more I look within, the more I see that whatever I experience in vicarious response to another’s experience reveals what is alive within me as attachments. The more I dissolve these within, in Love, the more they dissolve without, in ‘reality.’  (more…)

We commonly think of commitment as what we’re wishing to or determining to do or be; yet we only exist in the present, and so our commitment is exactly to what we are actually doing/being NOW.

So, if I find myself feeling sad a whole lot, I can say gently to myself, “I am committed to feeling sadness.” If I complain a lot, “I am committed to complaining.” If I find myself acing everything I do, “I am committed to acing everything I do (and perhaps, to competition).” If I find myself arriving late to most things, “I am committed to arriving late.” If I find myself to be the popular one everywhere I go, “I am committed to experiencing popularity.” If people often tell me what would they do without me, “I am committed to experiencing being needed.” If things are stuck in my life, “I am committed to being stuck and feeling what that feels like.” If I am always busy, “I am committed to busyness.”

We can do this with our feeling states, with our actions, or with the recurring patterns and outcomes in our manifest life.   (more…)
