GiftsRecently, I experienced new layers of revelations into thenature of reality.  These revelations haveshown me, in new and vigorous manners, both the nature of pure consciousness,as well as new understandings, in a very different and more direct way, thefastest, clearest, and most efficient method of clearing our karmicindebtedness, and realizing our true nature.


In the highest realms of consciousness, there exists what iscalled by various names in various esoteric wisdom cultures, Pure Consciousness.  Regardless of its name, its constituency isthat of pure consciousness not embodied, or aware of anything outside ofitself.  It is the pure consciousness ofcreation, the mind of god, the heart or creation.  It is known, as I said, by various names invarious cultures.  It, often, is thefirst emanation of creation.  In Vedicwisdom, it is known as Purusha, for instance. It is sometimes called Parashakti, though I understand this to be thesecond emanation of consciousness, or Life Force, which permeates theuniverse.  It is the union of PureConsciousness and Pure Life Force which springs all reality intomanifestation.  This is the heart of theteachings of the Sri Yantra, in Vedic wisdom. However, this is just one culture’s expression of this reality, used toclarify the nature of the expression of Pure Consciousness which “I” entered.


It is important to realize, when one experiences this state,there is no “I” which is separate from the All. All is all there is. 


Awakening Ra, Saluting the SunIn this state of Pure Consciousness, the mind is left untoitself to witness and create all reality. To the normal ‘western’ mind, this state of being might tend towardpsychological incriminations of some form of delusion, or insanity, versus the reveredstates of divine revelation it would be recognized as, in many other parts ofthe world.  This is, in large part,because the western mind does not incorporate this level of understanding ofreality.  However, should we invest inthe teachings of many world cultures, we would find a body of wisdom supportingthis level of revelation and realization, as well as deep cherishing for anyoneembodying it.


In this level of experience, the “I” becomes theall-pervading I.  There is no other.  No other mind, no other self.  When an ‘other self’ becomes apparent, it iswhen the mind steps down into the illusory world of separation and duality.


It is inthis world of duality, when we imagine our self not to be the One Mind, inwhich we begin to experience life as we more commonly know it.  The very fabric of our reality becomes basedon all choices and experiences we enter, within this fabric of being.  We are in complete autonomous control of theexperience.  However, we tend to notrealize this, as we create, imagine, or ‘recognize’ greater and greaterseparation from the Source.  It is thisillusion of separation which creates the ‘fall’ from Grace, the fear that weare not part of the Whole, indeed, the very doubt that we are, the Whole.
Our lifeunfolds with which choices we make.


We tend tospiral down into ever deeper arcs of belief, or, in actuality, disbelief, whichwe might commonly call the “3D” world, away from our heart of hearts, our OneMind of All Creation.
It is here,that the experience of karmic indebtedness is created, and shared.  With every choice we make, away from Oneness,from belief and understanding of the Greater One Self, we witness everdeepening beliefs and experiences of separation, and, eventually,suffering.  If we invest in this “3D”world as the greater reality, it becomes it, and we lose all sense of Self, andSelf Awareness.  The 3D does make itchallenging, through its ‘gravitational pull,’ to not let loose of its beliefs.  But, it is our choices, and the magnetizationof the outcomes of those choices, which is the foundation, and the fabric, ofKarma, and the 3D appearances of reality.

The only way out of this pathway of separation, is through recognizing the OneMind which weaves through us all.  Nomatter the illusion which unwinds and binds us here, in 3D appearances, thereis but One Mind, playing a great play through each of us, permeating ourreality and existence, the Purusha, or Pure Consciousness.  The deeper we enter 3D grace, the less thisvivid One Mind becomes real.  At somepoint, it seems impossible.
We are all born of this One Mind.  We are all part of it.  We are all It.


Termas.HerukaEveryemanation of every thing is birthed of this One Experience.
It appearsmost paradoxical, and yet is not.  Thisis the ‘neither real nor unreal, both existing and non-existing’ descriptive ofthe ‘Highest Tantra,’ of the Heart Sutra,of Buddhist teachings.
We can change it (our experience) at any time.
I remember the first time I stepped out of this ‘3D’ experience into thevastness of Space, and the One Essence. While the lesser parts of me could not believe the experience, thegreater part of my consciousness was surrendering, and dying to the GreaterState.  I had not seen it yet, but wasswirling in a counter rotational motion, through deep and infinite space,through all realms and dimensions of consciousness, through what I imagined tobe all gods and demi-gods of those realms, until I came upon the One TrueSource of All Creation, Infinite Light flooding my body.  I was given a choice to make, and I was notprepared for it.  I backed away from theInfinite Expression of Love and Pure Luminous Being, because “I” could notbelieve “I” was that part of it, or, in actuality, that “I” was “that.”
In some ways, I could say, that I have been backing awayever since, while paradoxically looking for the method of experiencing andembracing it, in ways that did not seem so self annihilating.


The truth is, there is no annihiliation.  But it appears so to the ego.  For the ego is invested in the illusion ofseparation and individuality.  Yet, ‘individuality,’get this, in actuality, means, in its root origin of meaning, ‘indivisible.’  To be an individual, is to be indivisible,with the One.


The slow and tedious method of changing our experiencekarmically, is by recognizing we are all emanations of the One Mind, and to,simply, do good to others, as if the other was our self.  Wow. Now doesn’t that remind us of one of the great quotes of one of thegreat master teachers of our lives?  “Dounto others as you would have them do unto yourself.”


There it was before us, this whole time.
It is the understanding of the Great Masters.
Spoken in different tongues, different cultures.


We are One.


The GiftsIn Buddhist teachings, is the Mahayana, the Tonglinwisdom.  In Peru, it is the Law ofReciprocity.
We are one.  And, by doing unto others,for others, we initiate the Law of Reciprocity, and the wisdom that we are allof One Source, and, indeed, in final essence, One.


And hereagain is the delusion of the ‘western’ mind, which thinks this to be bunk.
We tend tonot believe it is possible, or so. 
But, it isthe One Reality.


We do untoothers as we realize each is but an aspect, a reflection, an expression, of theOne Mind, the One Self.  Indeed, that isall that is pouring through us.
We purify our thoughts and actions, correcting any debilitating errors whichwould hold or bind us here, karmically, by our own shame or guilt, here in thisrealm, while helping others upon the path, in any way we may be able togenerate kind action.  This frees us fromthe illusion of separation.
While, there is only one binding agent.  Thatis our own thought, our own guilt, fear, or shame.  We need no forgiveness from others.  Just our own endless compassion, andrealization.  As the master would say, with NO doubt in our heart
Ho’opononpono**takes on ever deeper significance and meaning, as we look for that aspect ofour self, within our self, which expresses the act we see outside of our selfwhich needs forgiveness.  It is, indeed,nothing but Our Self we see in every one.
There is no Other.
Can we yetimagine this yet?
And, thus, there is no other to forgive. There is only Self.  And, as westep into Self Forgiveness, we realize even that is an illusion.  There is no act of corruption.  For we are nothing but Pure Consciousness.  We are the One.
Can we imaginethis?


Once we canrealize we are but the One Mind, we are free from all else.
And, werealize we are a true Creator Being.
We havestepped into our role, as Creator. 
And, can nowmanifest it, in whatever dimension of expression we choose to reside.
All thatremains, is the enormous realization of the Purity of Consciousness, which canonly express, and act, within that realm of Pure Essence.


There is no God but God.  God is all There Is.


Manyblessings, to each of my companions on this sacred journey.

** Ho’oponopono is a Hawaiian method of healing andrealization.  In its modern form, it wasbrought forward by Kahuna Morrnah Nalamaku Simeona for this purpose.
The heart ofthe practice is one of love, gratitude, thankfulness, and reciprocity, for allliving beings, encompassing all actions, clarifying all encumbrances withoutjudgment.


 “Ifwe can accept that we are the sum total of all past thoughts, emotions, words,deeds and actions and that our present lives and choices are colored or shadedby this memory bank of the past, then we begin to see how a process ofcorrecting or setting aright can change our lives, our families and oursociety.”

Ilove you, I am sorry, Thank you, Please forgive me.


What is mostfascinating, is in the realization of the sameness of all teachings, alltraditions.  There is no other Creator tomanifest separate wisdom to separate tribes among us.
We are ofone birthing.
One Mother.  One Father.  One Essence.
Blessingsbe.
The HolyTrinity.
