Manifestation Meditation Lessons Learned #1

This is series of short posts share things I have learned doing the Manifestation Meditation. These lessons are personal and you may disagree. There is nothing wrong with that. They are things my soul has taught me about how I need to live. They are not intended to reveal how you ought to live in anyway.

There is freedom in restriction.

Each soul has its own peculiar nature. The personality often expresses this quite well but appends to that an expression of its own misunderstood nature. So-called sin, is not the violation of a societal ethic but grasping for things outside your essential Being. When we come into full contact with the soul, this grasping no long occurs. Partial contact makes the desire to grasp easily conquerable. 

Consciously choosing to stay within the confines of the soul results in a freedom unlike any other. Stepping away from your being causes stress. Maintaining a position within one's being reduces internal stress to nothing. This also prepares the way for stronger contact with the external divine.

The Power of Destructive Magick

I am a firm believer that we should acknowledge our dark side. When someone does something truly hurtful or mean-spirited, we all have that place where we fantasize about a delicious head bashing. Sometimes we allow ourselves to fantasize of unleashing of evil curses that cause pain and suffering. Some of us, have even let those curses fly. I am sure, somewhere, there is a reader of this blog that has relished the moment as his or her enemy suffered under a magical onslaught unleashed in the quiet of the night. Such thoughts and deeds make us feel powerful after life events have made us feel weak.

These acts and the emotions they stir are simply manifestations of our souls at the time. They are perfect like all others. I fault no one for them.

There needs to a distinction made before I share more. When someone is doing harm in the now, there is nothing wrong with thwarting that harm. You move away or, if you have to, bonk them on the head. There is nothing wrong with defending yourself in the now. We must protect ourselves before we can serve others.

Now means now. Now, does not mean ten minutes after the threat has departed. Now, does not mean some future moment of possible attack. That you prepare for. Having a plan B is always wise, even if you do not have use it.

Moving on, let us accept the neo-platonic idea that the return to the godhead is possible. Then let us accept, for the moment, my vision of the perpetual and perfect unfolding of the human soul. Given this, unleashing destructive magick is at best a short term win. Eventually, the soul one is so hell bent on damaging will obtain the very peace we are seeking to prevent. From this view, destruction is impossible. All it does is delay the other person's realization of his or her unity with the godhead. This disunity is what caused the original destructive behavior to begin with. It will also create future so-called negative behavior. Perhaps that pain will not be inflicted upon us but does it matter? The result is more pain for humankind. What we are really doing is causing more harmful behavior. Why? Because it makes us feel better? More powerful? Obviously, this is pointless ego.

On the other hand, reaching within the destructive persona and setting healing energy in motion accomplishes two things. First, it heals the pain of the other. Secondly, because that pain is healed others are not harmed by the 'illness' previously present in the other. This removes or prevents impediments to the soul-unity of the primary actor, as well as the unknown other(s) that would have been harmed in the future. In short, we become a primary actor in the unification of the collective soul of humankind.

This isn't just benevolent altruism. Peace is the natural state of humanness. Lack of peace is the result of unresolved disunity. That disunity is amplified by the resentment we still hold for the other after we do destructive magick. By working on healing with a full heart that bears no resentment for the happiness of the formerly destructive other, we are one step closer to full unification.

Isn't that what magick and spirituality is all about?

Suddenly Busy

I haven't posted much of late. It isn't like I can say, "Hey everything is always perfect but it is just hard to see," every day. I do have some things coming up for your enjoyment. I expect them out shortly.

In the meantime, I am suddenly quite busy. Within the next thirty days I have 5 soul readings to perform, three classes (maybe four), a Soul Sangha meeting, and a healing client.

I am sorry, if this sounds like a Facebook post. I guess I am just posting to let you folks know I am still alive and kicking.

Learning to Rest

Since my soul healing in February and my understanding of the Perfect, Unfolding and the Wholeness, life has become progressively easier.

As long time readers are well aware, life was hard for a very long time. I don't mean hard like living in Iraq hard. I mean things of my own impurities, as well as life damage. These appear to be all but gone. What used to drive me up a tree and fill me with angst now appears as not only a normal life problem and the solutions are obvious. Things move from mildly negative to smooth almost instantly.

I have been working on the MM book. Mostly trying to find the right voice for my audience. I am making slow progress. I even have a surprise project in the works that you folks may enjoy. At the moment, that project is the only thing moving forward.

Today, I tried one of the newer MM versions*. I was told the doors to writing the book are not open because I need to learn to rest. It is time to smell the flowers and enjoy the peace. My drive to aid those to find this is well-placed but premature in all but those places I am currently working.

To my mind, this is well-earned. At the same time, I feel a bit selfish and impatient. There are things to do.

* There are now 3 versions of the MM, as well as 3 levels of each. This creates a nine-fold practice.

The Automatic Personality Revealed in Three Minute Video

The automatic personality is that part of us programmed by society, family, parents and our own life experiences. The insidious part is that this part of ourselves convinces us that we are making choices when we are really just following programming code: input received/output generated. I have shared this concept in many classes regarding the Manifestation Meditation and other spiritual topics because breaking through this is perhaps the most important spiritual task one can complete.

You are perfect. It is your programming that makes you think that you are less than you are.

Here you can watch that programming in action. You can feel the pain. If you can relate this, this should motivate you to do something about it. If you cannot, then perhaps you are not paying attention to yourself.
