We are in the world, and the world is in us. Like a night dream, reality is contained with our mind because we are its creator, and yet through our bodily form we experience reality. As a creator, we are the gatekeeper of our mind, determining what is accepted into our mind. As a part of creation, we receive the effects of what we allow in.
As the mind’s gatekeeper, we hold a position of sovereignty as we determine what enters our mind. What we accept as true enters in, what we dismiss as false is cast out. And, what we accept into our mind we add to the collective consciousness, impacting reality’s energetic blueprint, thus the condition of reality. Because the mind is a transducer between the uncreated and created, what we accept as true our mind manifests into our feeling world which in turn creates appearances and experiences in the outer reality. We govern reality, then experience the effects of our governance.
During our spiritual awakening, our position as a gatekeeper plays a pivotal role. Our awakening occurs as our source of truth shifts from the outer reality of appearances to the Divine Mind. In this shift, we no longer accept illusions of outer appearances as true but only the Truth received from the Spirit of Truth. What we accept as our source of truth, we become one with, so that it dictates our self’s expressions and what we experience. Therefore, this shift from illusion to Truth frees the self (and its reality), from the governance of a darkened mind to the Divine Mind, which transforms the self into its inherent perfection.
The sleeping mind is simply unaware of its true SELF. In this darkened state, all it perceives is its bodily form and the reality that form dwells in, so it formulates a concept of self based on its perception of these outer appearances, and these perceptions become its source of truth.
Through this false self’s outer perceptions it assigns arbitrary meaning to appearances based on its personal interpretations derived from past experiences. To the slumbering mind, these perceptions are its truth. Thus, each sleeping mind possesses its own, relative truth derived from its made-up meaning of things. These erroneous perceptions lead to a separate self-will, which creates conflict with other sleeping minds, manifesting a reality of destruction and death.
When these highly individualized perceptions define what is true, absolute Truth is kept out of our mind, creating a world of darkness within and without. Our body’s senses are established as interpreters of what is true, thus how we, as the gatekeeper, determine what we accept into our mind. When outer appearances are our source of truth, we believe our outer reality is the cause to everything. This belief-system blinds us to reality’s true cause, our mind, so that we are held captive to continually experience undesirable appearances.
Our spiritual journey into Truth leads us to the inner place of eternal Light where we are one with the Divine Mind, the Source of absolute Truth. As we sit in this place of revelation and reason with the Spirit of Truth, our awareness of Truth increases, which is beyond and therefore unaffected by the world of physical perception.
As Truth illuminates our mind, we come to know our true SELF, the expressed SELF of God. The erroneous perceptions of our self as limited to a bodily form are replaced with the Truth of the limitless nature of our true SELF. In this conscious connection of oneness with the SELF of God, our true SELF begins to govern our bodily form and our sphere of reality according to its inherent perfection.
As our awareness expands with increasing Light, we are able to discern Truth from perception. As a gatekeeper, we no longer allow erroneous perceptions based on appearances to be accepted into our mind as true, but only the Truth received from the Spirit of Truth. Because the appearance world is no longer our source of truth, it’s no longer the perceived cause to our experiential reality. Instead the Divine Mind is our Source of Truth, thus our Perfect Cause, so that our experience as a part of creation becomes its Perfect Effect.
During this transition from illusion to Truth, as gatekeepers it’s our sacred duty and eternal gift to accept only the Light of Truth within our mind and dismiss illusions based on faulty perceptions. In this position, we become creators of Truth’s expressions and receivers of its Perfect Effects.
The Divine Mind creates every moment in timeless Truth through us, so that it is our gift to give and receive. In oneness with the Divine Mind, we are an open door through which Living Light touches all of creation, creating eternal harmonious growth. As a part of creation, we experience this eternal expansion through ever-increasing divine reflections.
My passion is cultivating a deep relationship with God and helping others to do the same. I LOVE sharing with others insights that God has taught me and hearing what God has taught them… thus my blog, Stirring the Deep. My focus is on a relationship, not a religion. Life is in the relationship. I believe in a balance and unity of body, mind and spirit. I feel it’s important to nurture all three for they all affect each other. I try to live in the present, where the Holy Spirit is. And I try to do all with the motive of love. I’ve come to believe life is a journey and not a destination. It isn’t about perfection, is it about growth.
