Before reading this, please read and ponder these specific posts first: “What is Real?” and Parts 1-5 of L.O.V.E. This post builds upon the others. 🙂
With each cell within my being, I desire to assist YOU. Today, my 56th birthday, I would like no better “gift” than to be able to introduce *you,* Dear Reader, to the wondrous, precious, divine and glorious Truth of Who *YOU* Really, Eternally Are!
(If you could only see the warm tears falling from my eyes as I type this now, feeling the depth of sincerity with which I write….)
Oh, to part the veil within the temples of Your mind and escort you through! Oh, to watch as Your eyes open up to the scintillating beauty and sensory delights awaiting You… within your own being! Oh, the warmth, the joy, the precious delight of watching you explore, losing track of all earthly time….
Please know that this is why I live. These desires are Who I Am! Please understand that each word I write is my attempt to assist You in your soul development and ascent into this precious awareness.
The very reason for your existence is for you to experience… and through that vast and varied experience, come to know who YOU are! Those of us who have met our Selves, who have interacted (consciously) with Those Divine and Glorious Beings who know and L.O.V.E. each of us, who have returned to whet Your appetite and assist You to maneuver through the entangled web woven by materialistic society, extricating yourself so that You can proceed higher and higher, into the heights and delights of Your Own Being… nothing brings us greater JOY than to assist You across that great divide as well.
But, in order to venture to yet previously unknown heights…
You must be willing to be brutally, completely, integrously honest with your self. For many, the greatest ensnarements are self-justification and the false confidence of the ego. I implore you, with every fiber of my being, to lay down your pretensions. For just a few moments at least, allow yourself to be zealously honest. Look at and see those parts and pieces of your present identity that are NOT Really *YOU.* Realize that each habit you have accrued makes sense! Every counterfeit behavior was learned in a moment of self-preservation. I am not here to debate the rightness or wrongness of WHY you took upon yourself any belief or Re-action to survival in life. You just did! Each of those choices early on make sense! Every step you took came from an attempt to preserve your right to exist and be validated.
There comes a moment for each of us…
Is that moment NOW for *YOU*???
Is THIS the time when You will choose to open up… explore… become vulnerable… look at those hidden thoughts, the experiences that you have secretly hoped no one would ever see? IF you are ready to become healed… and whole… you Must become vulnerable and like a pure little child again. BUT, This time, YOU get to be “the mommy.” YOU can provide your precious wounded little self the opportunity to be heard, to be exposed, to be validated and understood… just as you would have wished to have been your experience oh so long ago when you WERE that precious little child. If you will allow, I will accompany you upon your journey of healing and emotionally growing UP this inner child. Today. Now.
But, again… only through integrous courage and willingness to be honest with yourself can you proceed and find your way in to the beautiful inner world awaiting Your discovery. *YOU.*
As I have so often written about, Matthew 5-7 contains the FULLNESS of the mysteries and allows one to come to understand HOW to maneuver through the entrapments of mortality. But, few have REALLY pondered and CORRECTLY APPLIED… moment-by-moment-by-moment, these hidden secrets! I have attempted to extrapolate and lay bare the precious step-by-step levels of Matthew 5 verses 3-12. Hidden within these few verses are the NINE steps up one’s “Stairway to Heaven.” I have written so often about these, but until one unequivocally decides, with pure and zealous intent, to walk UP these steps (without getting side-tracked which is — intentionally — SO EASY TO DO!), my words are just plain words and are quickly forgotten.
In David Hawkins’ book, “Power vs. Force,” he eloquently and scientifically presents this very same ascent. So did Maslow. So did each and every prophet (“True Messenger”) in their original, uncontaminated message. Sadly… even today… many who have found their valuable messages… have failed to read and translate and correctly apply the messages within their lives… without getting entangled with the “Messengers.”
I will here, in brief, condense these steps… but following this, I will take you to the ELEVATOR…
~~~ Understanding Your Present Level of Consciousness: What It Means and How to Raise It ~~~
You must accept, in order to move forward, that YOU have fallen. You no longer operate at the ultimate pure level of consciousness which you used to. Again, this makes sense. In order to operate within this “fallen world,” YOU had to “fall” yourself. This fall is a drop in consciousness, awareness, vibration. This level of vibration can actually be calibrated. I have written about it in my former posts (especially Part 5 of L.O.V.E.). Hawkins’ book presents in detail the replicable science of it. Where you currently are needs no defense from you or anyone. Just acceptance. But, again and again, in order for you to get to where you are destined to go (and experience the wonder, the glory, the JOY and ecstasy that is possible and intended for you), you must be HONEST about where you are NOW.
Each person’s unique choices and experiences are valid as they contain a different set of learning opportunities that teach that individual their specific set of lessons that are tailored to the step they are currently operating from… their unique level of consciousness. This earth-life experience is amazing in how it has been constructed to be the ultimate inter-active teaching laboratory! As we deal with and interact with each other… we give each other opportunities for choice and growth… or further descent. We have all been at low levels of consciousness in certain lifetimes as it is a necessary requisite for achieving the higher planes of awareness. The lower levels contain core lessons that we all must learn at some point in order to attain the full realm of the human experience with all its highs, lows and challenges. These ultimately provide the foundation for elevated consciousness. One can not truly know something until they have experienced it! Thus, we must all eventually pass through every level, from the lowest, fear based realms, to those of the highest enlightened consciousness.
Hawkins’ book is an elaborate discussion of the Scale of Human Consciousness, scientifically validating the nonlinear, spiritual realm and its significance. This book is: Power vs. Force: The Anatomy of Consciousness (Veritas Publishing, 1995).
As Hawkins documents, each level of consciousness (LOC) coincides with determinable human behaviors and perceptions about life and God. The way you SEE you, and define YOU, determines the way you see and interact with ME and everyone else. Again, only if you honestly look at your self and see yourself and allow yourself to realize that you CAN CHOOSE to see yourself differently (and, thus, ME differently, too… and each and everyone else as well), can you heal and GROW *UP* emotionally. Oh, but the view from above is SO WORTH the ascent!!! 🙂
These levels determine the reasons why people behave the way they do.
These levels can be divided into positive energy-giving levels and negative energy-taking levels. The negative levels from the lowest to the highest are: shame, guilt, apathy, grief, fear, desire, anger, pride. The positive levels are: courage, neutrality, willingness, acceptance, reason, love, joy, peace, enlightenment.
Although there may be times when we function at different levels of consciousness, as I recently shared re-reading some of my recent journal entries and feeling deep sadness (grief which is at a very low level of 75), we in general operate at one particular level. This can be considered our core level of consciousness.
Jacob saw a ladder with “angels ascending and descending,” Jesus’ “Stairway to Heaven” (Matthew 5: 3-12) takes one from being “poor in spirit” to “rejoicing with exceeding gladness” when being “persecuted for righteousness sake,” similarly, Hawkins documents these same levels from the lowest (shame) to the ultimate goal of humanity which he entitled Enlightenment.
According to Hawkins, only 1 in 10 million (that’s .00001 percent) people will arrive at this level. I disagree. Only when he conducted those calibrations (1995) was that 1 in 10 million occurring. Today is a different day! Humanity’s awareness has expanded exponentially! YOU were BORN to climb this same ladder of consciousness. YOU Exist to at some point (today?) decide to determinedly scale this spiritual mountain and join with each who have also reached Enlightenment. This is the highest level of human consciousness where one has become like “God” (as did Christ, Buddha, and Krishna). To BE and interact upon this level of conscious awareness makes one capable of transmitting wisdom and truly benefitting the rest of humanity. Service at this level brings quintessential JOY!
Dear Reader, as you decide to take vigilant responsibility to ascending consciously, please be zealously aware that everything that is around you affects your level of consciousness: the music you listen to, the people with whom you associate, the books you read, the shows that you watch, etc. Yet, you can learn and utilize the ability to TEST each one and how it will affect you. In scripture, Moses took those who chose to leave Babylon… out. The “Brother of Jared” escorted his people… out. Moroni went into a cave. When the moment comes for YOU to decide to leave the lower levels of chaos and confusion, the mortal transitory pleasures and the “honors of men,” then certain decisions and cross-roads must likewise be confronted. Like the caterpillar, you will be required to weave a cocoon of sorts, enter withIN the depths of your being and do serious soul-reflection and growth. So, you must decide. What do you REALLY want? How long will you choose to stay among the herd grazing aimlessly and blindly? How can you raise your own level of consciousness?
Awareness is always the first step. Again, study and ponder deeply Matthew 5-7. Likewise, I encourage you to feast upon the words that I write.
As Hawkins points out, the two greatest spiritual growth barriers arise at levels 200 and 500. Two hundred, the level of courage, represents a profound shift from destructive and harmful behavior to life-promoting and integrous lifestyles. Everything below 200 makes one go weak using kinesiology. Currently, approximately 78% of the world’s population is below this significant level. Without the counterbalancing effect of the 22% above 200, the destructive capacity of this majority would have been the death of all of mankind . But, because the scale of consciousness is logarithmic, each incremental point represents a giant leap in power. As such, one person calibrated at 600 counterbalances the negativity of 10 million people below 200. This means that with EACH choice YOU make to integrously elevate Your consciousness, You are affecting and assisting everyone else. We NEED *YOU!*
The second great barrier is level 500… what Hawkins has labeled “Love.” Love in this context is a way of Being in the world, not an emotionality as most have perceived it. The reason the level of love is so difficult to achieve is because the ego is so rooted in the physical domain as opposed to the spiritual domain. The 400s represent the level of “reason,” guided by the linear, mechanistic world of form which includes advancements in medicine, science, government, etc. Interestingly, the top echelon of intellectual genius, including Einstein, Freud, Newton, Aristotle, etc., all calibrated around 499. The 500s represent a very difficult hurdle as only four percent of the world’s population calibrates in the 500s or above. This level denotes a shift from the linear, provable domain (classic physics or Newtonian physics) to the nonlinear, formless, spiritual realm.
Hawkins created his scale from 1 to 1000, with 1000 being the height of human consciousness, the top of the spiritual mountain upon which Jesus sat down in order to call his disciples to him and to teach and heal the people. Yet, this 1000 is available and calling to you.
Now… to invite YOU into “the ELEVATOR.”
As way of introduction:
Several months ago, I was given a vision. I saw myself walking along a path, then with a little toddler girl, then I was given a bicycle and attempted to balance her behind me as I rode. At one point I looked up and realized that there was a pyramid to my right. With this awareness, I realized the bicycle was futile. I saw at the top of the pyramid a grand and glorious door of light. I then had pointed out to me an elevator off to the side. With excitement, I quickly took the young girl with me into the elevator where I noticed the buttons for the different floors and that a password was required. Stumped, at what that would be, I saw a red button to push for help. I did. A voice asked: “What is wanted?” I responded, “Please… What is the password?” Looking outside of the still open elevator door, I saw a glorious and divine young woman descend from the door of light above to help me. I recognized her as *ME*… in my quintessential eternal state. With quick intake of breath, I humbly exclaimed, “YOU’RE SO PRETTY!” She demurely looked to the side and touched her cheek with her hand. As she did, I thought to myself, “… and so vain!”
EUREKA! I then had my “password”! The way UP to the top of my spiritual pyramid, the mountaintop upon which Jesus sits, the highest rung of the ladder Jacob saw, and the clue hidden within Ecclesiastes… is *VANITY*!!! OMG! With that revelation, I knew that there needn’t be any continual life-after-life-after-grueling life. There didn’t even need to be years or months of great effort! Truly, we must SEE ourselves as the divine and glorious BEINGS that we Actually Are! This is the Grand Key! “Vanity” is the Password!
Yet, this “vanity” is NOT the egoic pride and self-centered awareness that condemns one to low-level consciousness and misery! True vanity is not mixed with foolishness! True and pure and unadulterated “vanity” is seeing one’s self with childlike eyes of wonder and awe and making every decision, every thought, from that high vibration of Self Respect… While loving and lifting and honoring the essential inner light of all others equally!
With *VANITY* for our “password,” all of our decisions, feelings, actions, thoughts… all the energy of our (then) Pure Heart expedites our journey UP into the spiritual heights! This is taking the Elevator to Heaven… by-passing the stairway with its’ step-by-step sequential progress!
Again, opening up the hidden clue from Jesus: LOVE *YOU* with All your heart, might, mind, and strength. As you do, and to the degree (consciousness level) that you do, you will LOVE ALL OTHERS Equally.
THIS *LOVE* is the Level Of Vibratory EXCELLENCE that Hawkins proved has been almost impossible to ascend into. But, that was in the past. Today is a new day! (My birthday! 🙂 )
I invite YOU to step into the Elevator, utilize the password “Vanity,” and ascend TODAY to the heights and glorious awareness of pure vibration. The Level Of Vibratory Excellence. Joy. Enlightenment.
Here is a link to one of my posts where I share an experience I had of utilizing this elevator: http://loveistheanswer.info/the-ultimate-experience/
Please, continue reading. Please open your heart, your eyes, your mind… wider than they have ever opened before. Let yourself feel the wonder, the excitement, the curiosity and intrigue of anticipated treasure. Within YOU.
As my further birthday gift to YOU…
I commit to write each day.
Accept my gift.
In my pursuit of Real Truth, I have given up everything. Crawling through the “eye of the needle,” I have learned the *mysteries* and am now giving my life to assist YOU to dis-cover Who *YOU* really are, along with your unique gift to offer humanity. As you learn to seek (in the right place and with purified intent), you WILL find treasures of lasting value, along with every promised reward. Together, we will establish a society of humane beings and live life ALIVE, on PURPOSE, and with a sociality unequaled… because we will each BE and view each other as equally and profoundly DIVINE! Please… catch this Hope and Vision and join with me.
