Sin is nothing more than not BEING present in this moment. In Christ consciousness there is no desire for anything outside of Him, outside of the present. The Lord is my shepherd I shall not WANT!! It’s the person I am trying to become that is my greatest enemy, the thing that I want is my greatest distraction. It’s the head knowledge I perceive myself to have apprehended that is the greatest hindrance to knowing; for my doctrinal thoughts keep me isolated in past and therefore restrain my exploration of the present intimacy of this moment!
In Christ consciousness, my dreams are a present reality that will be experienced by others... the moment of manifestation for others may not yet have come, but for me my dreams are present! I cannot help but see the seed for what it is.
Prophecy flows through the awareness of the present moment. Only in the realization of the prophetic seed present within, will it evolve into a present reality for others. You must agree with the reality you prophesy. If you are prophesying death, doom and destruction than you have made agreement with the one who steals, kills and destroys; you have attached yourself to doom! True prophecy comes only through the clairvoyant, for unless one can see clearly what is, this one cannot speak into what is but only into what is NOT!
Open your eyes and peer into the eternal; peer into the realm of the Christ! See through the eyes of Love and declare it as it is!
When you see clearly as a child sees at birth, you are free to live what is seen. This is living the dream! This is living in the High consciousness of the Christ!
Who told you that you were naked? Who told you that were born into sin? In our shame we have covered ourselves with clothes of self-righteousness in an attempt to be made acceptable to God. We have hidden behind the fig leaf of our own making, self-effort and duality. As long as I’m covering my own nakedness, I will always judge others for theirs and blame others for mine! How I see myself is the lens through which I will see others; and whatever law or moral code used in making the judgment is the same law or code I subject myself too. All judgment was submitted to the Christ and He did not come into the world to judge the world but that through Him we might be saved. If the Christ did not come into the world to judge but to save and as He is so are we, then who is empowering my judgment? The “I” apart from the “AM” sets itself up as judge, for in its shame it must place judgment to temporally relieve its guilt. The false identity, strives to put others down and brags of its moral purity in a last ditch effort to look righteous and be accepted. The whole time claiming Christ to be its righteousness when in actuality its righteousness is nothing more than an empty morality. The “I AM” self is free and longs for all of creation to enter into its liberty!
Purity of heart is all about being naked and unashamed! Shame and fear vanish in the revelation that I am loved just as I am. In this place of nakedness I no longer see myself through the lens of the past and no longer identify with my doings…I am truly free to just be! I AM is as the wind, fluid and free, no law or moral code can restrain I AM. The freedom to be is the liberty of expanse. It is the place of the wandering soul, the reality of the wind vibrating in creative wonder and creating in wondrous joy! To the pure all things are pure! This is where the creative unction thrives, like a child in world where he can do no wrong; like a child in a room full of finger paint with the liberating permission to create! Naked and unashamed!
Why do you call me good? There is only ONE who is GOOD! God is not good in comparison to evil or too that which our moral upbringing concludes to be corrupt. NO! God’s goodness is pure and perfect, so perfect that it transports humanity away from the ego’s illusion of goodness and into the perfection of itself. In the goodness of I AM there is no good and evil…there is only good! This good is so good, that it sees all as good! This goodness is not at the mercy of those who conclude to be evil. It’s not held hostage by wrong thinking, doing or identity. NO, this goodness is in and of itself perfect! This goodness is so good that it leads humanity to the place of repentance, to the place of thought provoking ecstasy! When one encounters God’s goodness and gets lost in this place of perfection, they can no longer identify by what others perceive to be good because they are now lost in a place of goodness that is all to itself good!
The question is not, “am I good?” The question is, “who’s goodness am I identifying with?” “Why do you call me good?” Jesus is not saying He is not good. He’s saying that His goodness is all together higher than what man perceived to be good in their state of duality! He’s saying that when you see God as good in the conclusion of your own evil, you have missed His goodness all together! He’s saying that until you see Him through the lens of perfection you cannot perceive your own innate goodness! And what of your goodness? Do you still feed on the tree that leads to a place of doing to be? Do you still acknowledge the illusion that is darkness? Are you still so blind that you cannot see? If you are in the light, and the light fills all things with Himself, then where is this darkness you perceive? Is it not a figment of your own imagination; an illusion found only in a darkened understanding?
Awaken to the truth of your goodness, to the reality that you’re perceiving darkness in a room flooded with light because your eyes are closed! Open your eyes to the Light and see the goodness of the Lord in the land of living! Awaken today to the reality of your goodness, not so that others might call you good, but so that you might see the perfect goodness of I AM within yourself and in all things! There is only ONE who is GOOD and you are in Him and He is in you!
Union is the mystic key that unlocks the door of unspeakable joy that deciphers the living word engraved upon our hearts, that enables us to truly see; it is the living water that quenches the thirst of those who do to be. One Spirit together with Him who is and was and will be, the reality of regent living among the gods, eternal bliss beyond the descriptive use of human language. Insurmountable are the effects of union, invincible is the three stranded chord. One could not separate the Oak Tree from the Acorn any more than one could separate God from Man. Oh the bliss of those who have awakened to this union, to the deepest longings of the soul. Left in this incurable state of joy one is no longer enamored by the trifles of temporal thinking, by the illusions of yesterday, or the grandeur of the non-existent tomorrow. No, those who have tasted and seen are forever found in the vast tranquility of the moment…they know it only as BLISS!
The only moment you don’t enjoy is the one you are not conscious of. Be conscious of this moment of bliss, this moment of ecstatic joy, for it is all that is real. Your disappointment is not real; it is but a figment of unbelief an illusion of that which is not. What do you believe about that which you desire? Do you believe the Father will give you the desires of your heart? Do you not know that He is more aware of your desires than you are? Do you not realize that He wants you to be awakened to your desires and enjoy them? To be disappointed is to believe that you are more aware of yourself than I AM is of Himself.
Desire this moment! Desire the ecstatic pleasure that is found in I AM! Desire the unspeakable joy found in the now. Bliss is here now, for the all present One remains in this moment. If you are present, truly present in the now, in this moment, in I AM, then you are experiencing this moment as BLISS!
Embracing the moment turns disappointment into adventure, the mundane into magnificence, and the monotonous into spontaneity! Consciousness of this moment of bliss turns loss into gain, distraction into focus and irritation into peace; for that which is not, cannot exist in that which is!
I hear this questions looming in the air, “how does one become conscious of this moment of bliss?” So I ask you, how does a dog bark or a squirrel climb a tree? The dog never considers why it barks or how it barks; it simply does because it is. If, however, a dog believes it is a squirrel, will it bark or will it attempt to climb trees? I ask you who read this page, does one born of God, an eternal being, a god, fear the future? Can one born of God not be conscious of his existence? If you believe yourself to be a mere temporal human being, will you not worry about the future and strive to live a decent life before you die? Will you not plan and prepare in an attempt to control to the best of your abilities that which you call life? Will you not work by the sweat of your brow all the days of your life to correct a non-existent past found in Adam? A dog believing it is a squirrel will never be able to just be, for it will always be striving to be that which it is not. Stress, strife, anxiety, fears and the worry of tomorrow are found in the eternal being who believes himself to be a mere mortal, a part of that which is not! It is impossible for a mortal to ever be truly aware of this moment of bliss! But you are not a mortal, a temporal being. You were born of I AM, the eternal God, the one who was and IS and IS to come, the Beginning and the End, the ALL PRESENT ONE! IN HIM YOU LIVE AND MOVE AND FIND YOUR BEING!
You are free to just be! It is your nature to be conscious of this moment of bliss; of the Now, of the “I AM”.
And the LORD God planted a garden (bride) eastward (eternal) in Eden (pleasure); and there he put the man whom he had formed.
The Bride adorned with pleasure is incapable of existing outside of pleasure, for pleasure comes from within and is embodied in being. The Bride, born in the image and likeness of I AM, sees only through the lens of the work that was finished in the beginning, in the eternal climax of the 'ĕlôhı̂ym. Does the Bride see thorns, thistles and weeds in the garden? Or does she see the beauty of the rose and the benefit of the weed? Is Eden a paradise if no one is there to enjoy it? Or is Eden paradise because eternal pleasure lives there? All that is, is good! That which proceeded from the 'ĕlôhı̂ym is perfect and that which is perfect finds its delight in the joy the Bride receives from it. Wherever the Bride is, this is Eden, for the Bride is the embodiment of pleasure, the carrier of joy, the perfect expression of I AM.
And the LORD appeared unto Abram, and said, Unto thy seed will I give this land: and there builded he an altar unto the LORD, who appeared unto him.
The Promised Land, like Eden, was much more than a geographical location. It was the promise of the awakening of God consciousness; the substance of that which is good! For the land has always been a reflection of man’s heart…of his consciousness. It represents the substance or the truth of the Divine identity that we are able to stand firmly upon.
And I am come down to deliver them out of the hand of the Egyptians, and to bring them up out of that land unto a good land and a large, unto a land flowing with milk and honey; unto the place of the Canaanites, and the Hittites, and the Amorites, and the Perizzites, and the Hivites, and the Jebusites.
The Promised Land was the return to Eden, the realization of paradise within that would destroy the illusion of an imperfect world. The awakening to a life of milk and honey, prosperity and delight that would flow like a river to nations.
Numbers 13:1-2 & 33
And the LORD spake unto Moses, saying, 2Send thou men, that they may search the land of Canaan(bent knee), which I give unto the children of Israel: of every tribe of their fathers shall ye send a man, every one a ruler among them. 33 And there we saw the giants, the sons of Anak, which come of the giants: and we were in our own sight as grasshoppers, and so we were in their sight.
Search out the Promised Land. Search out Paradise within and do not allow the giants of unbelief to hinder your awakening. Do not listen to the negative report of the faithless but receive the good news of your inheritance. It is yours in Christ, the Promise is yours! And it is here in the promise, in the consciousness of Eden that you see all is good. It is here that you realize the darkness you once perceived, was nothing more than a figment of an imagination rooted in duality and the battle of good and evil. For until peace within is realized, fear and insecurity will wage its war against us! And the thing we fear in consciousness will continue to finds its manifestation in the temporal reality we have created for ourselves. Awaken today to the Promised Land within, to the state of being known as Eden, to the eternal bliss of the perpetual unveiling of the Christ in us!
Death and life are in the power of the tongue and those who love it will eat its fruit.
In the Beginning, that is in Christ, the origin of All that IS, I AM created the Heavens and the Earth and all that is in them. Your creative potential is revealed in this statement, for you have been hidden in the Beginning; the Origin; the Life Seed; the Christ! You have been born of God, born of an incorruptible Seed, born of the Word made flesh; you are a carrier of the Life Seed, the Word, and it is this Word in you that transfigures your lowly bodies. It is the vibration of this Word, this Seed in us that brings us to our own mountain of transfiguration. This mountain of the revealing of authority, of God likeness, and of the holiness that has always been ours! Do not look at this mountain and fear, the way the Israelites did in the wilderness, in fact, do not look upon the mountain at all, look upon the Vibration, the Word, that holds the mountain together; for it is the Vibration that reveals the Mountain of God within. This Mountain of God, this Mount Zion, is not a mountain you ascend but is born within! It is the manifestation of your authority found in the One who IS, found in I AM.
When you feel the rumbling of this mountain do not fear, it the Life Seed germinating, growing, and transfiguring what you have believed about yourself; it is the destruction of that which IS NOT and the revealing of that which IS. It is the morphing of your thoughts, the transfiguring of your body and the revealing of the Glory within. Everything that can be shaken must be shaken in order for you to be and realize the power therein. This germination of the I AM Seed is the eternal redefining of self. It is the revealing of your Being; the revelation that you are the same yesterday, today and forever. And what does this mean, that you are the same? It means that you will never again exist in a lifeless state of being, but will abide in an eternal state of continuous morphing from glory to glory! You will abide forever in the I AM consciousness of Being, the Life Seed, the Word made flesh!
The power of the tongue is not found in what you say but in who you are; and who you are will always bring definition to what you say. It’s not what enters the body that defiles the man but what comes out of the body; for it is the revelation of what you believe that proceeds from within. Don’t you see, it is not what you say that defines you, no, your being defines what is said. This is the revealing of the LIFE SEED, the authority of MOUNT ZION. The tongue cannot speak on its own any more than you can live apart from the vine. Stop wanting to speak with authority and just be; for it is impossible for you, who vibrate with the Life Seed, to speak with anything but authority; for your words are Spirit and Life.
Theology gets its power from a past word and claims to define the present I AM with it. How foolish an attempt it is to define I AM with something that was said. What I AM said does not define Him, but He defines what was said! If you want to understand, you must let go of your intellectual attempt to understand. If you want to know the power of what was said, you must know Him who said it. To know Him who said it, you must know the PAWNEEM, the face, the intimate presence of the ALL in ALL, I AM! You must let go off what was said and hear what is being said. He who has hears to hear, do you hear? Do you hear the power and authority of Heaven rumbling within? Do you hear the creative, life giving vibration of Holy Spirit in each word that rolls off your lips? You have the I AM Seed growing within, every spoken word that proceeds from this Seed is Life and death; life to all that IS and death to all that IS NOT. Death and Life are in the power of the tongue.
Watch with me if you dare, the great play called “life”; actors and actresses working diligently to become the subject they most admire, they do whatever it takes to have a role, to look the part, and to be accepted in the play. Those who are accepted are watched by understudies and admired by wannabes; they are seen as successful, as wise, and as gifted. Most individuals never make the big stage, they stay behind the scenes, working backstage, but always trying to be like those on it. For the backstage worker, “life” revolves around the 9-5, having a nice house to go home to and a nice car to get them there. They seek pleasure in those they want to be like and miserably desire to escape the minuscule work that has been given them. Those who are deemed as successful lead the way in this play; their wealth, status, and popularity seem desirable, they appear to be having fun so everyone wants to be like them. Everyone is chasing the green, trying to keep up, trying to have a lifestyle that will make them happy.
Escape the bondage of trying to be like those society deems admirable! Escape the prison of thought that money and toys will make you happy! Escape the shackles of the American Dream and live once again!
BE YOU!!! BE FREE!!! Let go of the bondage of trying to be like someone else, stop being a copy cat! You will never find satisfaction in trying to be liked! Return to your true nature, your god nature, your creative genius! The play isn’t real, your work backstage isn’t real, and your 9-5 reality isn’t real. You’re not having fun and it’s not because of your job, where you live or the toys you don’t have. You’re not having fun because you don’t know who you are! We are raised in this play with the idea that applause means success! That Facebook likes mean that we are liked. That success is a nice place to live, good transportation, food on the table and big screen TV to watch after work; that a 401K and nice retirement is what you work 45 years to accomplish, so that you can die a nice death.
The prison door is wide open, will you walk through it? Will you dare to walk away from the status quo, the American Dream, and traditional wisdom? He who Christ sets free is free! Free to live and move and have our being in the moment, in the now, in I AM. You don’t have to fight for this freedom, it was already fought for. The dream of popularity and success, of money and toys, this can be taken from you, but the freedom I speak of can in no way be taken, for it is within! Will you dare to believe that this one moment in I AM’s presence is better than an thousand days of luxurious retirement? Will you dare to believe that in the presence of I AM is an ecstatic joy that paper can’t buy? Will you dare to believe that in I AM is pleasure beyond imagination, and ecstasy that cannot be taken? Will you dare to believe?
Life is so much more than where you have been and where you believe your plans will take you, it is bigger than where you are and what you do, it is who you are! Who are you? Are you your mother or father? Are you your husband or wife? Are you your best friend? Are you your neighbor? NO! You are an undiscovered jewel, a unique expression of the Glory of I AM. You cannot and will never be someone else; and you will never find yourself until you realize you are in I AM!
I see you, not because you are but because you affect so many. You exist only in the mind of man for they are your creator. I hear you, because you have high jacked their voices. You have locked them in the deep darkness of the cell within you. You have robed so many of their individuality, of their unique beauty, of their joy. You lead them on with the false hope of the illusion of tomorrow. You emotionally and intellectually manipulate them into being your slave; they have built you an empire, turned you into a mountain and serve you as god. They go to you every week at the holy time to offer their service, their money and their lives in an attempt to ease their conscious and draw near to the creator. You give them a book and call it the voice of God; diagrams and steps that never lead anywhere or to anyone, and call it empowerment. You were created in shame, fear and unbelief, as a way to cover their nakedness in an attempt to be accepted. You are the greatest illusion and a master magician. Those who unknowingly serve you, scurry about, in an attempt to do that which has already been done. They try to make themselves holy, to save souls, to bring in the harvest, to purify the land, to bring revival. The illusion of time and tomorrow is one of your greatest acts. You have convinced them of an end, and persuade them with the fear this end breeds. Death, hell, fire and brimstone await those at this end who do not conform to your laws and swallow your prescribed lies.
You are not real!!!!! You are but a figment of man’s fear, an illusion formed in a single agreement, you are nothing. You have been puffed up to be a great mountain that must be climbed, those who ascend to the top claim to rule those not yet there. They are ascending you with great effort and sweat of the brow, all the while trapped by the very thing they claim to be mastering.
Listen, you who read this page, this mountain is an illusion called religion and is nothing more than the catch line of a joke, for there is nothing to do, no mountain to ascend, no law to uphold or live by; he whom the Son sets free is free indeed. The moral lifestyle given you atop the mountain is no longer necessary, for the one who lives in Spirit needs no law to guide him. What will you do when you realize your efforts were not needed and your money did not buy off God? What will you do when you realize that the tribe or sect you claim to be a part of was an illusion formed from the dust of the ground and that the beliefs and thoughts that have shaped your life were grown out of this illusion? You have been listening to the same songs, the same teachings, and going through the same programs year after year; this is like having hundreds of presents under your Christmas tree all wrapped differently , but inside each one is the same pair of black socks.
Jesus came to free those who were in bondage to this illusion, to tear down this great mountain that has influenced so many. Make no mistake, He did not tear it down so that we could build another in its place; Jesus Christ is not the origin of Christianity or any other religion! The effort to build a religious mountain, to create a system of faith and worship is nothing but an attempt to rebuild that which Christ tore down, around the veil of self-consciousness, separation and self-effort. Unless God builds the house, the people labor in vain who build it! Look at all the beautiful buildings; the churches, cathedrals, temples, and mosques. We have been trying to build with our own hands a place for God to visit; a dwelling place, a place set apart for worship, a place for our sacred assemblies. Have we all gone mad! Did we not hear the thunder and feel the ground shake when the veil was torn asunder? Did we not hear the Christ say that He would tear down the temple and raise it up again on the third day? The purpose of the temple was annihilated on that day when the veil was torn and on the third day He raised the true temple up in Himself! Have you not heard that we are the Temple of Holy Spirit, the dwelling place of I AM? The veil was nothing more than self-consciousness; our belief in the lie of separation. It was destroyed in our hearts and we were raised up together with the Christ a new man, a Heavenly Temple, a Temple made without hands. Or do you not know that whoever is in Christ is a new creation, the old is no more and the new has come? Oh the beauty of the Heavenly Temple, the Eternal dwelling place made without hands!
Let us rejoice together, religions dictatorship has been demolished! The mountain is an illusion, it is not real! We are free to just be!
Walk with me through the great hall adorned with gold and silver, archways of pearl and twenty foot doorways made of the great redwood. Look with me if you will, into the great banquet room decorated for the celebration of the ages, fine linen drapes of purple and scarlet, engraved ceilings lit with the satisfaction of the saints. Peer with me into this eternal celebration, the marriage feast of the Lamb, both Husband and Wife clothed in light so brilliant that every guest appears to be clothed in the same. Listen as the husband speaks of the brilliance of His wife and the wife of the magnificence of her husband. They gaze into each other’s eyes with a look of ecstasy upon their face that speaks of love, and is heard throughout the Heavens and the Earth as a great trumpet blast. They are two that have become one, holding fast to the mystery that is their love, they drink deeply of one another and intimately embrace in a way that makes all the guests feel naked and vulnerable. So secure in their union, they dance and play as small children, freely sharing their love with guests in a way that causes those who peer through the windows to question their commitment for one another. But this is union, and in union there is no jealousy, only delight in the pleasure of the other; this is a love so strong, so unrelenting, that one might call it unconditional! This love they share is beautiful, so effortless, because they are love; it is not difficult for Love to love!
It is only hard to be yourself when you do not know who you are. It is only necessary to explain yourself if you are not secure in Love! The need to explain ones self comes from insecurity and the fear of man, but love cast out all fear! Love is patient, it is kind, it does not envy nor is it ever jealous. Love is not rude or proud; it is not selfish and keeps no record of wrongs, for it only sees that which is good! It rejoices in all that is and sees the best in everyone and everything. Love never fails!
Does the Groom feel the need to explain the love He has for His Bride? Does the Bride try to define Her Husband for the guests, with inadequate words or human origin? Does She need the guests to see Her Husband as She does or too know Her Husband as She does? Is She trying to convince the guests of His beauty of His kindness? Or is this revealed in the expression of their love? His goodness is seen in His embrace of the Bride, it does not need an explanation. The Bride does not try to explain to Her guests who He is, She simply introduces Him. She has no statement of faith about Her Husband and would not attempt to constrain Him in such ways. She would not consider trying to place Him in a box of doctrinal beliefs, for that would keep Her from knowing Him more deeply. That would stifle the mystery that is Love!
Ask yourself; is it more important to know what you believe or who you believe? Information is nothing more than created light moving at rapid speeds. It is thought waves formed from a conglomeration of past experiences. Do your opinions find their origin in a truth of what has been or the Truth of what is? Do you see your life through the filtered lens of regret? Have you allowed temporal circumstances to cloud your eternal vision? Is what you believe about God more important to you than the intimate fellowship of this moment? When you have a life question, do you consult a book written about God before you inquire of Him? Do your beliefs about God come from what was said, what was written and what has been?
You can read a book to discover facts about someone and learn enough about them that others might actually believe you know them. This fact discovery will lead you to develop a statement of faith, create a doctrinal box and ultimately restrict your ability to know the individual you know so much about! This is the prison of religion; knowledge without power, the appearance of what is right without love, the attempt to gain by your own effort that which you already have in Christ!
Be awakened today by the sound of freedom; it sounds as an alarm throughout the kosmos! It screams from the roof tops of cathedrals, “You, who want to know Love, this is the moment of romance.” The moment when you forget your self-imposed restrictions, letting go of the moral right and wrong that flows from pulpits and embrace Love! The moment of realization, that what you know about Love is trumped by knowing Him! That what you read about Him is but a beggar’s description, written with inadequate words of the quill and read with the eye glasses of religion. Let go of your belief that is based on these words and be swept of your feet by Love Himself!
You are FREE to just be! Spread your wings and prepare to soar, for what you thought you knew, no longer restrains you; who you thought you were is no longer relevant, and what happened yesterday no longer defines you. Gaze with me into the eyes of love and you will never be the same. The journey of perpetual transfiguration is upon us. For we have been caught up in Love, awakened by His embrace and enraptured with His kisses.
