Gratitude Brings Freedom

by Owen K Waters

yellowroseGiving thanks is the expression of gratitude, and gratitude is one of the most beautiful secrets in spiritual life.

Gratitude is an expression of love, and love is something which flows from the Creator of the universe through all forms of life and all forms of manifestation. Without love, life in the universe cannot exist. Love is the universal force of preservation which holds creation in manifestation.

The Natural Flow of Love

Love is as natural as the universe. By design, there is a tension between the forces of creation and universal love. It is this tension which controls the size of the universe, holding it within its envelope. It is this tension which regulates the size of an electron’s orbit around a nucleus. It is universal love which forms the force of attraction which retains electrons in their orbits, making atoms possible and therefore the existence of life as we know it.

You can block love, or you can allow it to flow naturally through you. Falling in love with another person is an allowance of the flow of love through your heart. In a world where everything has the appearance of separateness, it is a surrender to the underlying unity of all life. It is a place of apparent vulnerability, a willingness to take the risk that the illusion of separation will once again return if that love is later lost.

When you allow your heart to open to the universe’s flow of love, gratitude comes with that flow. Gratitude for being alive, for just existing, for just being in the flow of the adventure of life. Gratitude for the Sun that gives us life. Gratitude for the Earth that gives us our home in the cosmos. Gratitude for the people that you love, and for those who share your journey through life.

Gratitude flows unimpeded from an open heart. When you allow it, it flows as freely as the sunshine, unobstructed by judgments or conditions.

Believing is Seeing

by Owen K Waters

Today’s massive, ongoing Shift in consciousness is a shift from intellectual awareness to holistic awareness.

Intellectual awareness is a function of the solar plexus chakra, where mental ability is developed in a linear direction. Examples of linear thought include the performing of arithmetic and the operating of machinery. In this mode of consciousness, people have learned to develop a rigid discipline of “seeing is believing” in order to discover what works and what doesn’t.

With holistic awareness, the heart chakra is developed, allowing issues of separation to be resolved and integrated. Holistic awareness means that mind, body & spirit are seen as closely related facets of the human being. This heart-centered awareness is a viewpoint of integration or wholeness which heals the fears and discords that come with solar plexus consciousness.

There is a paradox with moving from linear intellect to heart-centered consciousness. While the intellectual phase of consciousness may say that “Seeing is believing,” the holistic phase requires quite the reverse. In holistic consciousness, opposites are often both true as they are seen as opposite sides of the same coin or as polar opposites of the same issue.

Awareness that is limited to the intellect is subject to issues of separation; of us versus them, of struggling for resources that are perceived as scarce instead of solving the problem of their scarcity. Holistic awareness includes the idea that consciousness creates realities, that something must be created in consciousness – “believed” – before they can become a reality.

So, in holistic consciousness, “Believing is seeing” becomes a statement of truth, even though it is the opposite of “Seeing is believing.” Instead, it adds the understanding that reality is created by consciousness. We are not merely observers of what is. We create what is.

Traditionally, people have entered a realm of holistic, heart-centered awareness when they pass on from this life. In the afterlife, their task is to heal the fears and hates of their physical lives and transform them into love and forgiveness, thus integrating themselves with others, rather than feeling separate from them.

Today, due to The Shift, more and more people are embracing holistic, heart-centered consciousness while still alive in physical bodies. As the heart is also the gateway to spiritual consciousness, this global movement is producing a revolution in spiritual unfoldment.

Spiritual consciousness is flowering in the global consciousness of humanity as The Shift progresses. Today’s pioneers in consciousness are people just like yourself. They are exploring the new territory of unconditional love and experiencing a reunion with their own inner, spiritual connections.

The higher aspect of heart-centered consciousness is fully connected to your inner being, or soul. Your inner being is fully connected to the consciousness of the universe and to that which created the universe. Infinite Being is within each of us. We are Infinite Being.

The daily focus that we apply to our five senses and their connection to the outside world is just like performing a part in a play. We act out the part of being us, along the general theme of the type of events that we planned for this life. We ride along through the journey of this life, gaining the type of experiences that we planned to gain.

When you open up to your heart, and through that, reconnect to your own spiritual source, then you have become a part of the very future of humanity.

The Shift is heading towards a world where unconditional love and acceptance is normal, where strife is relegated to the distant past, where the true potential of human beings can express itself in the daily joy of being all that you are.

Thoughtspeed: The Speed of Thought in Free Space

by Owen K Waters

Old ideas give way to new ones. Old barriers, sooner or later, crumble and fade away.

One idea that is crumbling today is the idea that nothing in the universe can go faster than lightspeed. This will be replaced by a recognition that thought travels many thousands of times faster than lightspeed – at the speed of thought in free space, or thoughtspeed.

In the early Star Trek series on television, the mission of the Starship Enterprise was to explore the universe and boldly go where no one has gone before. The Enterprise was able to exceed light speed; quite considerably, it would seem, as it was supposed to have traveled to the edge of the Milky Way galaxy in just a few hours. The cruising speed actually required for such a feat is millions of times lightspeed.

Science fiction is often a medium for possibility thinking. The possibility of humans touring the galaxy and beyond seems eminently reasonable. After all, human potential is, by design, unlimited. There is no way in creation that the universe can be just a set of pretty lights that we never get to explore!

Today, the shift towards recognizing thoughtspeed is just beginning. Faster-than-light phenomena are being observed by today’s physicists when they see the effects of subatomic particles communicating with each other. When a subatomic particle bumps into another one, they become ‘friends’ and carry on communicating with each other. The fact that they then become separated by millions of miles does not reduce their willingness to communicate. When something happens to one particle, it lets the other particle know about it and, in pure empathy, it reacts in a like manner.

We know from the work of insightful pioneers like biologist Rupert Sheldrake that telepathy works, but how fast does it work? As thoughts are nonphysical, they certainly are not limited by lightspeed. The question is, how much faster than light is the speed of thought in free space? It is likely thousands of times, and possibly millions of times, faster.

In 2013, scientists in China used the latest in high-speed measuring devices to gain an idea of how fast energy particles communicate with each other across a 15 km (9 mile) distance. The equipment is still not sophisticated enough to produce a definite figure, but they did determine that the speed of particle communication is at least 10,000 times faster than the speed of light.

What’s next? Send particles over really long distances… like to the Moon? Then, when an earthbound particle reacts at thoughtspeed to its friend’s change of state as it reaches the Moon, you’d have a much better idea of the true speed of thought in free space.

In the 1940s, aircraft were limited to the speed of sound until they found a way through the sound barrier and were then able to travel at supersonic speeds. One day, when our spaceship propulsion drives are capable of accelerating ships to lightspeed, we will find a way for them to break the light barrier.

Then, we won’t be just looking up at the night sky any more. We’ll be flying through it, going where no one has gone before.

The Physics of Tao

by Owen K Waters

Almost forty years ago, Fritjof Capra’s book The Tao of Physics set out to explore the parallels between the worldviews of modern physics and Eastern mysticism. The author’s conclusion was that the two were, not just consistent, but in perfect harmony with each other.

Physics has advanced in many ways in forty years and so has mysticism and its understanding of the universe. In particular, many insights into the mysteries of the universe have emerged from the spiritual revolution in the West.

From the mystic perspective, the universe was created by Original Consciousness, Tao, or Infinite Being, focusing through an active Creator aspect of itself. The mystic asks, “How did God create this?” while hoping for a glimpse into the cosmic manufacturer’s mind. One thing’s for sure with such a mystical approach: You find a lot more answers when you open up to the idea of higher energies than by insisting that nothing exists beyond physical matter.

To the materialist, thoughts are just electrical signals firing somewhere inside the brain. If that were true, then you’d be like an electronic computer with pre-programmed thoughts, no self-awareness, no free will, and no feelings! Your mind is not your brain and mind energy is not electrical. Mind energy is one of those higher energies that the Creator saw fit to create.

One of the mysteries facing physics is a type of experiment which reveals that related energy particles can communicate with each other much faster than the speed of light. How could this be possible, they ask, when the speed of light is supposed to limit all action in the universe? In the view of physics today, all energies can travel at the speed of light and no faster. That’s because of the assumption that all energies must be down-to-earth, material, electromagnetic energies. Well, how about those higher energies?

In the broader picture, we don’t just live in a conscious universe, the universe IS conscious! All things are composed of consciousness because the universe was created from the only available material – consciousness.

We know that physical matter is composed of energy, but from what is energy made?

Energy is compressed consciousness.

There is not just one level of energy in existence. The next higher energy above electric energy is etheric, or vital life, energy. Electric energy is a compressed form of the higher, etheric energy.

What’s above etheric energy? All levels of mind energy, from the lowest to the most inspired. Feeling and thought are the yin and yang of mind energy. Both varieties intertwine all the way up into the realms of spirit, of soul consciousness, and beyond into the cosmic realms.

So, how do those two energy particles communicate with each other faster than the speed of light? The answer is easy to appreciate once your worldview is expanded…

Mind energy travels at millions of times the speed of light.

The two particles communicate at the speed of thought, and the speed of light has no bearing upon the situation. Like everything in the universe, those particles contain awareness. In a universe comprised of consciousness, nothing can exist without consciousness. As particles of a fundamental nature, their awareness may be rudimentary, but their display of feeling is quite obvious to the observer. As related particles, they have developed a connection with each other and their willingness to communicate demonstrates this bond. Thought and feeling are the materials from which this conscious universe is made.

Mind energy exists on a scale that rises into the higher realms of awareness like a stairway to heaven. Higher consciousness is very real and it can be yours by turning your attention within, spending time daily in reflection or meditation, and opening up to the intuitive knowingness which resides within your own soul level of consciousness.

Expanded awareness isn’t just for mystics. It opens the doors of perception where you can understand far more about the nature of reality. It brings you closer to the eternal fountain of joy and wisdom which lies within the soul consciousness of each and every one of us.

These principles are an example of the many keys to freedom and enlightenment covered in our online course, Fundamentals of Enlightenment at:

What Is Real?

by Owen K Waters

What is real? What is there to hold on to?

One of the main reasons for experiencing life on Earth is to discover what is real. We spend our lives coming here, going there, trying this and trying that. We acquire physical things and eventually let them go. Life’s experiences pass by like so much water under the bridge.

bridge

One constant in all of life’s ever-changing realities is the inner observer. This aspect of your inner self is present in all of life’s experiences, watching, learning, remembering. However, when you go even deeper than this, you reach the underlying basis of all consciousness, the awareness that, simply, you exist.

This fundamental awareness can be summarized in two words: “I am.”

The great “I Am” presence

You are one individual viewpoint of the great I Am, the consciousness of All That Is, the all-inclusive and all-embracing Infinite Being.

Consciousness is reality. Experiences may change from minute to minute, but underneath the flow of experiences lies that constant awareness, the sense of being that says, “I am.”

Life is about experiences which unfold at different locations in space and time. Space, however, is merely a construct of the Creator’s consciousness. The concept of space was created to allow an infinite variety of viewpoints to exist.

Time is also a construct of consciousness. Time enables change within space, making events and experiences possible.

Is physical matter a construct of consciousness? Matter is composed of energy, and energy, like all things in life, is a construct of consciousness.

The definition of energy

Energy is compressed consciousness.

galaxy2Each unit of energy is formed by counter-rotating vortexes of Intent. These vortexes push together to form a tiny sphere of compressed consciousness within their center, which becomes a particle of living energy.

Intent and Love in motion are the original, fundamental principles used in Infinite Being’s creation of the universe. Like thought and feeling, these aspects of being operate as complements to each other, and yet each one can be defined as an underlying, fundamental principle. When intent, the principle of thought, and love, the principle of feeling, are set into motion, then one invokes the other. The same complementary action occurs in electromagnetism when electricity is set into motion. The electrons – particles of compressed, original Intent – invoke a complementary magnetic field within the fabric of space.

The fabric of space is created by the Love aspect of the Creator. Love is the aspect of Infinite Being which provides the supportive matrix upon which all else is built. From the point of view of physics, the fabric of space would be defined as pure, inert, magnetic energy. Or, at least, it would be if physics had gotten around to defining it yet. It used to be called the aether, but its properties were not fully understood at the time. Physics, for the most part, does not currently believe in the aether, does not currently believe in a Creator of the universe, and, as a result, has no idea why particles of energy exhibit signs of consciousness.

The original Creation

starrynebula

Before the original Creation occurred, Infinite Being formed an expression of itself which was to become the Creator of the universe. Then, as the One Creator, it focused its Intent, expressed its Love, and brought these two aspects of Itself into motion. All of the universe was built upon these underlying principles, which make possible the facets of Creation such as time, space, energy and matter.

A universe in motion makes possible the changes we call experience. But if life is constantly changing, then what is there to hold on to? What is unchangingly real?

Unchanging reality is to be found beneath those fundamental aspects of the Creator’s Intent and Love in motion. Infinite Being is the underlying reality. Infinite Being is all that is, it never changes. Being is pure potential, whereas doing is the acting out of that potential.

The underlying reality of Infinite Being is complete beingness. Infinite Being is real. It never changes. It always is; just is.

How do you connect with reality? By meditating, by using the affirmation, “I am Infinite Being,” you can build your connection daily to the true reality which lies within you.

When you make spirituality your number one priority at the start of each day, then daily meditation becomes a habit, something which occurs with ease. By building that inner bridge to reality, you are empowering your own potential and also helping to shift the global mind toward enlightenment.

The Origin of Spiritual Metaphysics

by Owen K Waters

Traditional metaphysics is the study of consciousness and the nature of reality. It goes way back, a long way… beyond even Aristotle. As a topic of study in modern universities, it generates endless discussions, no enlightening answers and, one might speculate, could even be a cause of students deaths by terminal boredom!

In the 20th Century, metaphysics reincarnated as the human potential movement, bringing a sense of hope for possibilities beyond people’s wildest dreams. At the higher end of the consciousness spectrum, the new metaphysics was inspiring and uplifting. At the lower end, it devolved into a mind-numbingly mundane tool for material ambition. It was this chasm between higher and mundane metaphysics that led me to coin a new term.

My own focus has always been on the spiritual aspects of metaphysics so, in August 2005, I decided to put the two words together and began using the term, spiritual metaphysics. This gave definition to a field of study that brought the light of understanding to spirituality and went beyond basic metaphysics.

An all-inclusive definition of Spiritual Metaphysics has to include the ultimate consciousness which is behind all of Creation. This one spiritual source is known by various terms, including The Absolute, Tao, or the All That Is. My own term is Infinite Being, which encapsulates the idea of infinite, all-encompassing consciousness beyond which nothing else exists.

To keep the desired perspective on the nature of the universe, one has to consider the Law of Creation that underlies all manifestation. It is this triune method of creative consciousness that presents itself in many ways in the nature, in the structure of the universe, and in your life.

As a lifelong mystic, such mysteries were always dear to my heart. After 40 years of ceaseless struggle and searching for the keys to the universe, great insights began to dawn within my consciousness. For a short while, I even began to wonder if I’d been upgraded with some kind of intelligence transplant because, there I was, with deep insights into the nature of the universe popping inside my head like camera flashbulbs going off!

Then, reality dawned. It wasn’t actually me that was having the bright ideas. It took a while, but I slowly began to realize that the great inspirations were being fed to me by helpful ascended masters. It seems that they consider this to be the time for the release of greater metaphysical understanding. I was being impressed with these new ideas because I was on their list of people who were likely to talk about such realizations once they’d been received and understood. This comes from a desire to be of service and a willingness to step forward to assist in uplifting humanity during this time of awakening.

Over the years, I have been digesting and simplifying what I have learned from these inspired sources so that it can be easily understood by everyone. In essence, the subject of spiritual metaphysics is very simple. Beginning with the One consciousness, the Law of Creation employs three aspects of consciousness to interact with each other.

From there, the process is repeated so that you have three aspects of Divine consciousness plus nine variations of the original three in order to manifest the complexity required to support the manifestation of the material universe.

The result is twelve of everything critical to the framework of Creation. There are twelve levels of existence in the universe. There are twelve dimensions (space, time, energy, and so on), and there are twelve universal laws of life. 

Gaining this knowledge is like being handed the keys to the universe!

These keys can transform your own reality into an magical world of new and inspiring adventures.

The time has come for me to present these insights in a way that everyone can appreciate. It may have taken me a total of over 50 years to gain the insights that I have today, but you can grasp them in one easy course because, like all works of the Creator, they are the essence of elegant simplicity.

Once you see these universal principles laid out for your examination and understanding, you will have a complete knowing of how they are ingrained in the design of the universe in order to guide you along the path of your mission in life.

Our January 2016 course, Fundamentals of Enlightenment, is now over and I would like to thank all those spiritual pioneers who attended this breakthrough online course.

The Myth of the Number Seven

by Owen K Waters
Spiritual Dynamics Academy

Every spiritual seeker has seen references to seven this, seven that, seven of all sorts of spiritual kinds of things. This is because the number seven is believed to be the number of spirituality.

In the Bible, it is said that God created all things and then rested on the seventh day. As a result, we have a seven-day week, with the seventh day traditionally reserved for spiritual practice.

A few centuries ago, there were seven known planets or celestial bodies – Saturn, Mercury, Jupiter, Mars, Venus, the Moon, and the Sun. Since then, Uranus, Pluto, and other minor celestial bodies have been discovered, along with the fact that the Earth is itself an orbiting planet and not the stationary center of the universe.

At the same time, there were seven known metals. They were lead, mercury, tin, iron, copper, silver, and what was seen as the ultimate result of the evolution of metals – gold. These days, an additional 79 metals are known to the science of chemistry.

There were even Seven Seas, although the list of what they were varied over the centuries along with the discovery of new parts of the world. However, there always had to be seven seas because of the established power of the number seven and, well, because it sounded good. Let’s face it, nobody really wants to “sail the one hundred and four seas” that each have their own names today.

There were Seven Wonders of the Ancient World and – surely a sign from God – the Seven Hills of Rome.

You would think that the seven colors of the rainbow is a number based in hard reality. But, is it? In 1672, Newton, who admitted his eyes were not very critical in distinguishing colors, originally divided the color spectrum into five main colors; red, yellow, green, blue and violet. Later he added orange and indigo out of a belief derived from ancient Greece that there is a connection between the colors, the seven musical notes, the seven known objects in the Solar System, and the seven days of the week. In reality, the color spectrum looks primarily suited to a simple, 3-color range of Red-Green-Blue:

ColorSpectrum

According to some schools of thought, each human is supposed to have seven subtle energy bodies.

I count three: Etheric, auric/astral, and soul. Where did the other four come from? Must there be seven of everything?

PianoOctaveEven the seven musical notes on the piano keyboard isn’t quite right. There may be seven major keys in each octave but, if you include the five minor keys, you have a much more realistic set of twelve keys per octave and, significantly, each of the twelve keys is exactly one half-tone apart from its neighbors.

Obviously, there has been a compulsion to make seven a number of great significance. There are seven major chakras, although, as five of them have both front and back faces, counting their twelve individual faces produces more useful information.12chakras

The human chakra faces are not the only example of twelve of everything in Creation. Twelves keep showing up everywhere you look in the metaphysical structure of the universe.

The Structure of the Universe

The Law of Creation has three components that form a medium for Creation to occur, or what could be called the Creative Matrix. In order to create the complexity necessary for our physical universe to exist, those three original components of the Creative Matrix are then combined with each other to form an additional nine combinations. This addition of nine (three times three) extra components is called the Triple Matrix Effect.

That 12-part model of Creation – the 3-part Creative Matrix plus the 9 more combinations created by the Triple Matrix Effect – is used and re-used throughout Creation, and not just in the twelve chakra faces. For example:

The Twelve Levels of Existence: There are twelve levels of existence in the universe – three Divine and nine more, each level becoming more focused and dense than the one above it. We currently live in a dense physical level which is about to transform into a less-dense version when all matter on the planet moves up into a higher physical frequency.

The Twelve Dimensions: There are twelve main dimensions or properties (such as space and time) attributable to every physical object. They are the three Divine aspects of consciousness that created the Divine framework plus nine physical dimensions. Those nine physical dimensions fit into the categories of space, time, and different forms of energies and consciousness.

The Cosmic Cycles of Influence: In the physical realm, you experience a different solar cycle every year starting from your date of birth. Like all aspects of Creation, there are three immaterial or Divine cycles that form the nine physical cycles. It is the nine physical cycles that are of direct concern to life in the physical realm. 

The Spiritual Laws of Life: There are three Divine laws within the original Law of Creation. Then, there are nine more spiritual laws of life, created by the Triple Matrix Effect, that govern physical manifestation.

How the Conscious Universe Works

by Owen K Waters

“The universe only exists when you are observing it,” or so the popular theory goes.

This theory is an offspring of quantum physics. It says that, because the observer affects the outcome of experiments, the observer is key to reality. The theory goes on to suggest that the universe only exists when you look at it; therefore you must be creating the universe from your consciousness.

This is actually not a new idea. The old Zen riddle, “If a tree falls in a forest with no one to hear it, then does it make a sound?” reflects the same style of thinking. It suggests that nothing happens in the universe without an observer being present.

There is some validity to this theory in that, at the deepest level of consciousness, you are Infinite Being. At that deepest level, you are that which creates the entire universe, and that which maintains it in motion. However, at the everyday, human level of consciousness, the universe exists and runs quite happily without human intervention, whether or not anyone is watching it. The tree makes a noise when it falls, whether or not any human observers are present at the time.

Take, for example, the Pleiades, the star cluster which is also called the Seven Sisters. Often, on a clear night, you can see the Seven Sisters twinkling in the sky, even though they are five hundred light-years distant. Because of that distance, you are actually observing where the Seven Sisters were five hundred years ago. It took that long for the light image to reach your eyes. Basically, you are observing history in the night sky, not the actual, current position of the stars.

If you were creating the universe by virtue of being its observer, as the theory goes, then you would actually witness the Seven Sisters in their current position, and not in the position that they were five hundred years ago.

The idea that we live in a conscious universe has been gaining ground steadily for a number of years. The conscious universe is much more than a universe which is simply self-aware. The fabric of the universe is consciousness. The universe consists entirely of consciousness. The objects in the universe are all made of consciousness. Everything in the universe is fabricated from aspects of original consciousness, interwoven and set into motion.

The chair on which you sit appears to be made of physical material. It has the appearance of a solid object that exists somewhere outside of yourself. However, physical matter is composed of subatomic energy particles, and energy, in turn, is composed of compressed consciousness. So, the chair is made up of 100% consciousness. It only appears to be a separate object outside of you because it is a projection of consciousness within consciousness.

Physical objects have their own specific locations in space. Space, however, is just a projected illusion, a concept manufactured by consciousness so that the All may be divided into an infinite variety of apparently separate parts.

Time is also a projection of consciousness. Time is a concept whereby the infinite parts of the All can engage in the appearance of movement. The underlying reality is still the eternal Now and yet time makes change, and therefore an infinite variety of experiences, possible.

An everyday analogy of projected reality is a movie projected onto a screen. You know that the movie is just the projection of a recorded, dramatic scene, but it’s easy to forget that as you become involved in the unfolding drama. The movie appears like a real-life drama for as long as it absorbs your attention.

Time and space were fabricated within the consciousness of the universe in order to set the stage for life as we know it. Because the universe is made of 100% consciousness, all things are within it, and therefore subjective. Nothing is really “out there,” even though life appears to be an objective experience. All physical reality is a projection within your consciousness, not something outside of, or separate from, yourself.

Each and every object in the universe – a table, a chair, a car, a house, anything – is not only composed of 100% consciousness, it actually IS conscious!

Spiritual Metaphysics Defined

by Owen K Waters

While physics is the study of physical reality, metaphysics includes that which is beyond the physical, but not necessarily the spiritual. Spiritual metaphysics takes an entirely different orientation. Spiritual metaphysics sees an ultimate, metaphysical source of all creation as the basis of reality.

This one spiritual source is known by various terms, including The Absolute, Infinite Being, or The All That Is. The term Infinite Being encapsulates the idea of infinite consciousness, beyond which nothing else can exist.

Freedom of the Spirit

seagullsA spiritual revolution in human consciousness began in earnest in the 1960s. Prior to that, the psychologist Maslow estimated that only 2% of the population had achieved the spiritually aware stage of self-actualization.

The mid-1960s changed everything and the spiritual revolution began. Masses of people began the search for the higher values, such as unconditional love and spiritual wisdom. While the outward fads of the sixties came and went, the flame of spiritual yearning never went out. It quietly grew as people searched, reflected, and found their spiritual freedom.

Thirty years later, that progressive core group within society had blossomed from 2% to over 20%, and it keeps expanding each year. Most of these progressive thinkers are conscious spiritual seekers, with a sense of self that is a real, inner self rather than an outwardly-focused, ego type of self.

The global shift towards spiritual awareness is the most wonderful transformation in recorded history. This is where humanity gets to build, literally, Heaven on Earth.

Why the Creator Is Larger Than the Universe

starrynebulaIf nothing exists beyond the consciousness of Infinite Being, then the universe was formed within, not outside of, its consciousness. The spiritual source of all life, Infinite Being, is therefore greater than the universe which it created within itself.

The spiritual concept of God employs terms like omnipresent, omnipotent and omniscient to express the idea of infinite consciousness. From this expansive point of view, God the Original Creator is greater than all manifestation and, yet, is aware of every part of that manifestation.

The Conscious Universe

AncientOfDaysWhile physics ponders how to cater for the ‘mysterious’ effects of consciousness in experiments, spiritual metaphysics sees beyond the mystery. Because all things are made of consciousness, then all things are actually conscious. All things are aware in their own way.

When you see the universe from this spiritual perspective, it is no longer a mystery why a pair of related atomic particles consciously communicate with each other. Two atomic particles can communicate with each other because they have their own consciousness. They may not have the self-awareness of human beings, but, when they meet, they remember each other and stay in communication. If one collides with an obstacle, then the other one feels it and responds accordingly.

Research in spiritual metaphysics does not take place in the laboratory. Instead, it’s an inside job. The primary research tool of spiritual metaphysics is meditation. The purpose of meditation in metaphysical research is to access expanded states of awareness. For example, in deep meditation, you can expand your awareness to the limits of space and observe the shape of the universe.

The Universe is a Giant Doughnut

Physicists agree that the universe may be torroidal-shaped, but they have no physical proof as yet. Moving beyond physics and into spiritual metaphysics, which is where all the fun stuff happens, you discover that this doughnut-shaped universe is actually a projection within the consciousness of its Creator. Space no longer exists beyond the outer envelope of the universe, only the consciousness that created that space.

Space is a Fabrication of Consciousness

Space is no more than a concept in consciousness. It isn’t really “out there.” Everything made from consciousness is “in here,” within you. Space is a projection within consciousness, manufactured for a specific effect. What appears to be “over there” is really just another one of an infinite number of viewpoints within the great “Here and Now.”

The universe was created as a living theater of expression and humanity opted for total immersion within the drama of this theater of life. We live in search of the truth about life, and yet we feel disconnected from its source. We focus upon a world that appears to be exterior to us. Our five senses keep our brains so busy that it takes determination to find the peace and wisdom which lies within. Enormous resources of information, guidance and support are available through our inner being. When we direct our attention within, we gain access to those resources.

The Mirror on the Stage of Life

mirrorofvenusSpiritual metaphysics sees the universe as a mirror. Who you are, and what you express in thought, feeling and action, causes the mirror of life to reflect that back to you.

If, for example, you like yourself, then other people will like you, often without even knowing why. So, if you want people to like you more, you need only discover and dissolve the inner blocks that are keeping you from an unconditional love and acceptance of yourself. When you love yourself more, in an unconditional manner, life will reflect your improved attitude towards yourself and other people will love you more.

The mirror of life is automatic. Once you change yourself, and not before, the reflection changes and your reality transforms to reflect the new you.

Unity With the Oneness Within

Your true, inner being is found in silence. Your inner being is who you are. It is your soul. Your inner being is your personal link to the universe and to its source, Infinite Being. It is in this silence that you come to realize that everything in the universe is one, that separation is actually an illusion. In the light of this inner, soul connection, you also find your sense of unconditional love for all of life and all of humanity.

From Heart to Soul: The Path to Liberation

by Owen K Waters

Freedom! The eternal cry of the soul.

But, what is the soul? And what does freedom entail?

People often equate heart and soul as the same thing while, in reality, they are distinct and different so it helps to make some definitions. After all, a journey to a new land goes well when it starts with a map and it can falter when no such guide is available.

In these days of The Shift, our physical bodies are being gradually risen in frequency. When the time is ripe, we will physically enter fourth-density existence, a higher realm where heart-centered consciousness is the basis of all thought.

In today’s third-density world, ambition for the self often takes precedence over the good of the many. In a heart-centered world, one’s effect on others is given every consideration and win-win situations are sought.

As the heart opens further, the door opens to spiritual awakening. Once spirituality enters the perspective, it becomes obvious that the primary objective of the human experience is that of spiritual growth. Even though, at a soul level, each person has a unique set of objectives for their life, the underlying primary purpose of all human life remains the same – that of spiritual growth.

While spiritual awakening occurs in the developed stage of heart-centered awareness, the very next step brings enormous enlightenment through an awakening of contact with the soul level of consciousness.

Your soul is based in the fifth-density, or throat chakra, level of consciousness. It is also present at all times in every other level of your consciousness, including day-to-day physical awareness, but people rarely turn within to pay it much attention during a busy day.

Within your soul are the memories of everyone you have ever been, of every experience you have ever had, and the plan you outlined for this life before it began. Life plans are continually managed at a soul level because they need adjustments to stay on track despite changing circumstances.

A life plan is a map of intended destiny, but it needs constant adaptation and the physical mind is helped through intuitive inspiration from the soul. The more in-touch you are with your inner being, the easier it becomes for you to stay on track with your own life plan.

As you encourage your own soul awareness, you become closer to mastering all that physical life has to offer and closer to completing your own cycle of reincarnation. When you rise above the need for further reincarnation, you move into the soul realms and operate from there with all the freedoms that come with such an unlimited existence.

As a soul, you are then able to move across space and time at will, as easily as the hands of a pianist running up and down a keyboard. You exist in a world of beauty, filled with endless hues of color and inspiring harmonic sounds. Your connection to the divine is open and this fills you with constant joy. Your soul family – hundreds of other souls that you love the most – can be in touch with you at any time you wish. There is no loneliness in such a connected and supporting world.

You learn the deeper mysteries of life without having to pursue any of the needs and duties that now take up so much of your time in the physical world.

The ultimate journey from the heart to the soul starts with a determination to develop your own soul awareness while in your physical body and to take rapid strides toward the liberation that awaits us all.
