Transcending the Themes of Consciousness: Awakening to Forgiveness, Self-Acceptance, and Courage (Part 1/2)

Awakening to courage and empowermentIntroduction

With the final editing process for the book coming to a close, the vision for continuing to serve through this site is really exciting and I’m looking forward to devoting more time to writing here and honoring the thousands of hours I’ve been pouring into the book. I’m currently in Bali, Indonesia as I write and am inspired and eternally grateful to have finished the book here. As a final intuition regarding it yesterday I took out around 80 pages or so that I felt weren’t necessary to include in the book itself but instead to be shared here, which brings me a lot of joy to do so! Accordingly, because we’ve already discussed the fundamental concepts of various topics of psychology, unconditional love, the ego, consciousness, and the progressive themes of self-identity I am thrilled to share more profound writings that I think will be really helpful! So without further ado, the following series is going to be an extensive expose of transcending the various themes of self-identity within our consciousness from the most narcissistic ego-based suffering all the way to ego transcendence through radical, absolute truth of Enlightenment and Nonduality. Happily, let us begin,

The following teachings and select journal entries are offered as a perspective on the spiritual journey to salvation and enlightenment. The writing is prepared in the manner the teachings were relevant to conscious evolution as well as in the order they were given in this experience. They are humbly offered as guidance, encouragement, and clarity in the awakening of Absolute Truth. Always know that all Truth is already self-existent and therefore comes from within as that which is already present, simply forgotten. Therefore the writing is prepared in order to inspire and facilitate awakening through exposure as well as provide sources of contemplation and guidance to the realization of Absolute Truth. Therefore, ponder the teachings that are presented and ask for Divine Love’s assistance in order to allow their fullness to be revealed to you according to your conscious intention and alignment with Truth. Take peace knowing that Truth cannot be mistaken and there is no doubt when it is realized as the Presence of Divine Love becomes gloriously self-evident. The fullness of awakening to Absolute Truth is beyond any and all of human endeavors and there is nothing possibly comparable to its fulfillment. Absolute Truth’s profound power is an all-encompassing Divine Love, as the ultimate eternal fulfillment of immortal happiness and love itself. There is simply nothing else worth pursuing in one’s lifetime without doubt or question for it is only the Absolute Truth of what is. Thus, waste no time, surrender all attachments to Divine Love and awaken to immortality filled with infinite love and happiness.

The Fall into Shame

In the complete darkness of unawareness all seems infinitely hopeless and impossible. There is the sense of being a complete reject of life itself and one curses one’s own existence expressed as an unbearable desire to suffer endlessly loathing and hating one’s life. One feels that they can’t possibly get any worse so they might as well enjoy their suffering and sadistic pleasures and therefore become masochistically addicted to it. It is as if we embrace the infinite shame and fear of the darkness as that which brings us comfort since it is familiar to us. In other words, embracing fear, hatred, and narcissism and learning to love it seems to make it less painful by joining with it rather than trying to transcend it. Thus it is the ultimate denial of Divinity as love and gratitude for life as one would rather love suffering rather than seek self-respect and growth. Consumed in narcissistic addiction there are feelings of complete shame, apathy, vindictive hatred, rage, sadism, and addiction to all sorts of miseries as dominant qualities of existence. In this all-encompassing blindness it is clear that deliverance is only possible by the power of Divine Love offering infinite compassion and forgiveness.

Accepting a Creator/Higher Power

The absolutely most important aspect of surviving and emerging from the grips of illusion and ignorance is accepting a Divine Creator that is infinitely and unconditionally loving, compassionate, merciful, accepting, and forgiving. Furthermore, with this realization one must be exposed to the notion of a spiritual reality in which one is divinely innocent as either an extension of Divinity or a divine child, essentially its one and the same. The main contextual relevance is that consciousness/the soul begins to accept a spiritual reality that transcends all limited perspectives of the current intense hatred for life. For the ineffable misery and suffering is only a result of not knowing what/who one truly is – a being of perfect innocence and purity. Every conscious being is infinitely perfect beyond all comprehension and innately innocent and lovable. All suffering is only the result of unawareness of this truth and is learned via ignorance begetting ignorance such as abusive parenting or falling into seductive temptations of curiosity. In Reality there is no suffering possible and one need only realize that suffering is only a result of not knowing Truth rather than any personal failure. Thus all are only doing what they think is best and are innocent always and forever.

Forgiveness

By Surrendering to Divinity All Things Are Possible

With this knowingness one can begin to accept the true nature of one’s reality as a blessed divine being of love, beauty, and hope. No matter how grotesque or traumatic life may be we can find refuge only in turning to Divinity as eternal love and mercy. Surrender to Divine Reality is the only source of salvation, eternal peace, fulfillment, happiness, joy, and deliverance from all possible suffering in life. Furthermore, Divine Reality is already self-existent and all suffering is only arising from denying that which already is. Thus, to escape suffering one must stop resisting Truth and begin the process of surrender to Divine Love that offers a sanctuary of salvation to all equally without question, doubt, or exception.

Divinity has no interest in partiality or judgment and in fact such notions are a complete impossibility. These things are only illusions of the ego mind that is lost in the seduction of ignorance and narcissism. Out of ignorance and naiveté there is constant self-condemnation and self-hatred due to the thinking that one is incredibly worthless, lost, and evil. However, with proper teaching of Truth one can abandon this self-hatred by realizing one is always innocent, loved, and forgiven. There is no need to punish oneself; instead work to let go of the addiction to suffering that has been attached to in order to embrace the love within that is available in every moment. All suffering is self-created and simply not necessary.

The Gift of Existence

Divine Love is infinite and eternal without beginning or end and is always present waiting to be noticed. Truth is that life and existence is indeed eternal and a gift from Divinity that is without possible accident, mistake, or coincidence. Before any growth and progress can emerge one must see that to exist is already the greatest gift of love from Divinity. Furthermore, this existence has been offered eternally and one need only awaken to this Truth to begin to find peace and solace in knowing that this life is a spiritual experience above all else and all form will eventually pass.

By accepting life as a spiritual reality all guidance and deliverance from suffering can then be readily seen as the glory of awakening to Truth propels one through any and all obstacles. It cannot be said enough that it is only surrender to Divine Love that is capable of transcending any and all suffering in life no matter how atrocious it may be. This purity of love, compassion, mercy, hope, and forgiveness is equally offered to all, always and forever, simply because one exists. Therefore, to exist is to intrinsically be divinely innocent and eternally right as a sacred child of God. Everything that exists is already full of Divine Love, for to exist is to be Divine Love. Divinity is always within us and it is impossible for Divinity to forsake us, therefore put all trust and faith in Divine Love to guide you through all things.

Divine Guidance

We Are Never ‘Wrong’ or ‘Sinful’

With this powerful truth in mind realize that we could therefore never be ‘wrong’, ‘evil’, ‘sinful’, or ‘bad’. These are all just inflammatory labels utilized by the ego to perpetuate suffering by labeling itself negatively in order to dwell on narcissism. These labels are absolutely never true, all teachings otherwise are misleading and controlling. There is only infinite eternal rightness in all that exists and especially in all conscious beings that are ineffably beautiful creations of life. Furthermore, to be born as a human being with the ability to seek salvation and enlightenment is the most profound gift one could ever imagine in the entire universe. It is so important to constantly remember that to exist is to already be a vessel of Divinity as an innocent child of Divine Love.

After accepting a Divine Creator the first spiritual truth that must be accepted and understood is that all are innocent and will never be judged or punished by any illusory judgmental God figure. There is absolutely no truth to these beliefs. Judgment is a complete fallacy used to control others and has no alignment with Love. One must surrender all self-condemnation and self-hatred in order to begin true progress that primarily stems from releasing judgment. The realization of innocence must be established first and foremost if any true growth is to take place. It seems religious baptism can be useful for helping restore this awareness but it technically is unnecessary since the Truth is that one is always innocent and forgiven within every moment it just simply needs to be realized through proper teaching.

Therefore, one can find peace in knowing that it is the act of surrendering to Divine Love as an intention and effort that is eternally significant. For as one even attempts to surrender to Divinity forgiveness is granted instantly within that exact moment of the humble, honest, loving intention. One need not suffer for ignorance, such as punishing oneself as a ‘sinner’, instead simply let it go, move forward, and realize the Divine Love that is always within waiting to be noticed. Divinity is not keeping a record to be held over our head. There is only unconditional love and eternal rightness; all else is a creation of the ‘tempter’/ego (seductions of narcissism). Stay present and only focus on the current intentions, dwelling on the past only feeds negativity, regret, and ego narcissism.

Hope and Devotion

Transcending Judgment and Understanding Consequence

With these concepts embedded within consciousness it then is important to realize that there is no possible judgment but there is however consequence. The significant difference between these two is that judgment is based in partiality and coming from some separate, imaginary, judgmental God figure whereas consequence is based strictly out on personal responsibility and accountability. Judgment is a complete misinterpretation of the divine avatar’s teachings and the result of limited leaders in positions of power seeking control over others. Through notions of judgment there is the arrogance of being able to preach God’s judgment, inadvertently condemning others, yet magically some how not condemn oneself in the process because after all, ‘only God can judge me’. However, this is an obvious contradiction and fallacy, for what one does to others they only do to themselves and vice versa. To believe in a God of judgment is to judge and condemn all humanity, such a thing must be realized to be absurd and purely arrogant. Judgment is based in the energies of fear and narcissism and is therefore limited, weak, and simply not true.

To indulge in the narcissistic vanity of judging oneself or any ‘other’ is a complete fallacy and impossibility for to do so is to judge the entire universe as something other than ineffably perfect. Also, we cannot preach judgment without being judgmental, with some thought this becomes obvious. To teach of judgment implies that there is imperfection to begin with and therefore no longer divine innocence and perfection within a being, which is also a fallacy. Simply and profoundly, all are perfect at all times and all places beyond all possible judgment otherwise. All are always divine and absolutely pure and lovable without exception.

Even though the great teachers taught to never judge, religions have used the manipulative concept of judgment to control masses through spiritual fear and condemnation. However, it is completely erroneous and incredibly damaging beyond all imagination to humanity. One need only briefly study history of humanity’s struggles and conflicts to see the endless destruction judgment has caused. Judgment is a complete lie and has absolutely no truth to it and only leads to suffering, anger, hatred of self/others, and condemnation of self/others. There is absolutely nothing constructive that arises from judgment that couldn’t otherwise arrive from a healthy respect for consequence.

To make real spiritual progress one must realize that consequence is the only spiritual truth regarding a soul’s accountability. Consequence can be easily known to be of truth because it has love, compassion, acceptance, accountability, mercy, forgiveness, and encouragement innately built into it. For as one accepts their own consequences one has absolutely no interest in condemning others for one knows that to do so would only subject oneself to the accountability of such an act. Therefore consequence has innate to itself the desire to develop love, compassion, and forgiveness for not only oneself but for all others as well. Therefore consequence can be known to be true due to being obviously based in the true power of lovingness and infinite mercy. Consequence transcends the fallacy of projecting condemnation, whether of the self or of others, because to do so we realize only hurts ourselves.

Through consequence, one only ‘goes’ to Heaven or Hell because one has chosen it for themselves as a result of one’s conscious intentions and alignment. There is no judging God who punishes and rewards anyone or anything; all souls determine their own fate by their own choices and conscious alignment. By accepting the power embedded in the concept of consequence it allows one to shift into a field of empowerment by realizing one can only ‘save’ themselves by dedicating oneself to Love/Divinity. All are exactly where they want to be and are deciding it themselves from the most demonic to the most angelic. God doesn’t ‘send’ or ‘put’ a soul anywhere, all choose for themselves.

Accordingly, self-condemnation can be realized to be of absolutely no benefit and a complete vanity anyway. It is a complete impossibility for anyone or anything to be unworthy of Divine Love therefore there is no point in seeking self-condemnation and self-deprecation for it is no longer given credence. Consequence is based in Divine Love’s absolute goodness and fairness that allows all to simply choose as they may. Consequence is based purely in love, acceptance, mercy, compassion, and infinite forgiveness and is exactly what all the divine teachers truly taught without exception. All teachings otherwise are a misinterpretation and manipulation of Truth.

Therefore by realizing the fallacy of judgment and the truth of consequence we can begin to accept our intrinsic innocence as well as infinite forgiveness that are always innately within us, present in absolutely every moment. With this established we can then accept that it is only ourselves that are responsible for our spiritual destiny and therefore there is no one else to blame. There are no victims in the universe and there are no perpetrators, it is only the ego’s seductive illusions of narcissism that create belief in such things. Whether one enjoys happiness, fulfillment, love, and Heaven or misery, suffering, torment of the lack of love, and Hell is purely one’s own choice as a result of consequence of one’s intentions. It cannot be clarified enough, there is no such thing as judgment there is only consequence.

This profound truth has been grossly misinterpreted and misunderstood over the thousands of years since humanity’s exposure to spiritual teachings and is crucial to be clarified. The primary reason for the misinterpretation arises from the desire to control and manipulate others due to judgment being based in partiality and fear. However, Truth is pure unconditional lovingness and freedom and therefore has no interest in such things such as control or desire since they are obvious fallacies of fear and greed. There is no judgment, for we are perfect and divinely innocent always therefore there’d be nothing to possibly judge to begin with. It is only each individual’s own intentions, choices, and karmic alignment that result in one’s fate through consequence of attraction and intentionality becoming manifest. Therefore, quite simply, we need only suffer in Hell and unawareness if we choose to, otherwise we can choose to align with love, happiness, and Divinity and awaken to the Heaven that is within us as infinite and eternal Truth. The Truth is nevertheless always the same and always available regardless of our choice. We can either accept what is or choose denial thus creating suffering; the choice is solely up to us.

Clarity

Moving Forward With Clarity

By accepting spiritual reality based in consequence and a love of Truth we can then make massive leaps in conscious evolution through devotion, dedication, and acceptance of self-accountability. There is no limit to consciousness’ ability to expand and evolve in awareness if proper understanding of Truth is available and then dedicated to completely. However, there must be a full acceptance of spiritual reality for any growth to truly begin, in fact without accepting a spiritual reality consciousness will inevitably become limited no matter how intellectually genius it may become as a human being. Therefore the sooner spiritual reality is accepted, the easier it is for consciousness/the soul to truly mature, evolve, and further understanding of higher realms of lovingness and happiness.

The first step is accepting that we are loved and always provided for by Divinity as an infinitely perfect and innocent being of goodness and love. The fact that we are alive to begin with is proof of this, no matter how meager our existence may seem. It is the gift of life that provides all the proof we need of spiritual reality for all life only arises from preexisting life. To exist is to already be Divinity. Thus it is important to remember the primary theme of spiritual reality is unconditional love and eternal rightness regardless of one’s karmic alignment (conditions/circumstances of life). To avoid self-condemnation because of one’s inherited, impersonal karma/life situation/degree of awareness, it is vital to accept one’s divine innocence and purity first in order to begin healing. This process can be greatly assisted by having a support group/religion, teacher, guru, friend(s), family, or guardian that emulates the high-energy fields of true spiritual unconditional love through recognition of one’s true Divine Nature. To make any substantial growth it is necessary to be aligned with a savior/teacher/higher level of awareness in order to facilitate the dissolution of the ego’s barriers of illusion. Recall that once established, the ego unaided cannot transcend itself.

One of the primary struggles that presented itself in these early stages of acceptance of innocence was the desire to enjoy the addiction of suffering. It came in the form of self-denial in that one doesn’t want to accept one’s innocence and purity because then that means one has to change and let go of the addiction to suffering. However, this can be best overcome by constantly realizing that one is only choosing one’s own consequences by alignment of intentions. Therefore to seek one’s suffering is to seek one’s suffering for eternity by consequence of alignment. With reflection it becomes clear that this is simply not necessary and we need not suffer or deny ourselves the joy and love of life that is rightfully intended to be ours. Human beings are intended to be full of love, happiness, passion, and joy for it is these expressions that are the greatest service to Divine Love and humanity. All sense of worthlessness, self-hatred, shame, and rejection of Divine Love are only illusions of ignorance and are in no way even remotely true. Don’t believe anyone who tells you or tries to demonstrate to you otherwise.

To accept the ignorance that one is worthless and shameful is only indulging in a lie that has no actual reality and the first step to deliverance is realizing this. Once it is clearly realized that we are only creating our own eternal suffering simply because we didn’t know any better, it is only divine compassion, forgiveness, and pure unconditional love that will then give the strength and courage necessary to seek improvement and freedom from the attachments to misery. Let it be clear, there is no reason, meaning, or purpose for suffering, Divinity has no interest in sacrifice through suffering or the absurd notion of suffering for repentance for ‘sins’. These are only temptations of illusion that keep one trapped and addicted to suffering.

The truly devilish and demonic are purposefully, infinitely miserable and narcissistically indulgent in self-loathing and seek company to validate their vanity such as being ‘evil’ or ‘sinful’. Yet all ‘sin’ is only of ignorance due to unawareness of Truth and therefore is only a result of innocence and naiveté. Therefore one can have compassion for oneself by simply admitting ‘I didn’t know any better, and I’m grateful I do now’. Therefore, it is the Truth that shall set us free as that which is infinitely pure and loving. There is no end or beginning to Divine’s lovingness and it is offered always simply because we exist. We are loved infinitely and eternally as Divine Love itself, innocent, sacred, and pure beyond comprehension.

Sacred Beauty

Developing Patience and Compassion For Ourselves

Once a clear understanding of our spiritual reality is accepted we can then begin to free ourselves from the ensnarement of addiction to our own misery and joyfully make our way into the light of Love. One must always remember to have compassion and forgiveness for oneself as the initial climb may be extremely difficult and require persistence, patience, and unconditional love for oneself through the process of evolution. Struggle and regressions are to be expected and one must always immediately remember to forgive oneself and keep charging ahead. This is when it is most helpful to have an unconditional loving guide/savior that allows for constant support and emulation of the highly loving fields of compassion, forgiveness, and encouragement. There is no need to be ‘perfect’ or ideal right away, there is no judgment and one is actually perfect and right always, even while still struggling to release addictions to hate, rage, and suffering. Remember, it is the constant intent and effort that leads one to salvation and Heaven. Hence the great avatars taught it is the fact that one is on the path and call unto Divinity by whatever name that is most important. Always pay attention to intentionality for that is where all power of consequence is.

Accordingly, self-hatred and frustration can be let go of by realizing that it is the fact that we are trying that is absolutely amazing and we are already forgiven and perfect in every moment along the way. We can still be perfect while making mistakes, we mustn’t take ‘failure’ or ‘mistakes’ personally, they’re actually exactly what they’re supposed to be and we can instead bless them. By aligning one’s intentions with lovingness, self-improvement, and surrender to Divine Love already brings with it a consequential massive shift in positive potential that is being constantly provided and made available. Divinity is waiting in absolutely every moment to give all that we require for growth and transcendence it is only a matter of accepting guidance by becoming open to it via invitation. Therefore we must focus on intention and dedication and not be so attached to particular outcomes. It is comforting to know that Divinity is sustaining absolutely every moment of our existence and therefore if we exist then we can automatically know Divine Love is providing for us always and forever. Divine Love will provide all things, always and forever, without doubt or question, for to exist is to already be proof of this.
