Empty Space and Worlds Within

In the so-called past, I wrote Prayers to the Godbeing. Two years later, I wrote a commentary for each prayer so that one might consult them as an oracle. I have used them in that way for many years. Both the prayers and the commentaries are online as The Fire of Life Oracle.

Use of them has staggered my consciousness into unfathomable spaces of spirit. Imagine treading water alone in a vast ocean and deciding you don’t want to return to land. Every time I use them, I come into that space. Nevertheless, I am still here.

These prayers are voices. From deep within the ocean, one can hear the voices as they engage the human condition from within the infinite spirit, one knowing molecule at a time. These voices are why I use the term “quantum” when I discuss the infinite spirit. They are living, knowing pieces of existence engaging the reality of the space they exist in, or as, along with the human consciousness which touches them. When I touch the space of one of these voices, I know it and it knows me.

The word “quantum” means a particle or a discrete piece of something. It also urges us into contemplation of the infinite space within which particle physics operates.

In this past week, two people I have known have died. I wasn’t close to them, but as these two human souls were passing on, my beloved Rachel was in the hospital for two weeks undergoing surgery, which was scheduled for two hours and lasted five, leaving me in the waiting room watching a monitor filled with color codes, contemplating whether the inevitable had arrived. It hadn’t. She is home recovering nicely.

Without claiming that I know what happens at death, I can offer two viewpoints: one, every death is cosmic, a projected arc created by the unique living of one individual into some other dimension of the infinite spirit; two, love and death cannot be separated into distinct realities.

All dimensions of existence are present in each personal life, including the empty space with all the quantum beings and worlds within it. Everything is available within the folds of grace and personal choosing.

Those of us who have chosen meditation, prayer, chanting the names of God, or any other form of worship, have invited spirit to align our personal lives with the divine arc which we are on. I shot my arrow into the sky . . .

When I asked the Fire of Life Oracle about transmitting Sunpoint healing energies to Rachel, I came up with Prayer 20. I have come upon this prayer many times over the years. Perhaps this prayer is my arc into the infinite. Reading it feels like swimming to the bottom of the ocean. Unlike many arcs out into the unknown, this one enters spirit directly at the quantum level. See the movie The Incredible Shrinking Man and you will know something no words could explain.

Prayer 20 is about the infinite spirit touching one’s personal being. It feels personal because touching you makes it personal, but it always carries you beyond the personal question that brought you there, in this case my question about sending Sunpoint healing energies to Rachel. The verses of Prayer 20 are the waves of spirit touching the heart. The commentary, printed below, is the arc left by spirit in the heart for passage beyond. Notice the ocean in this arc, feel the embrace of love and death:

This prayer is a preparation for experiencing love without the protective veils of life around it. Its passion arises out of the realization that all human love is illusory, even the most intimate and enduring unions. In their confrontation with that truth, the mind and heart suffer the deepest disillusionment, for which there can be no preparation. How can love not be the one salvation within a world that is permeated with darkness? If you are ready to surrender the palliatives that most spiritual teachings offer, you will be able to stand eye-to-eye with the one living truth. How you respond to this loss of illusion is the very redemption of human life, even as the veils that define human life are shed.

Your passage into the inner reaches of the heart, once the veil has been irrevocably torn, may be perilous, and you may even want to forgo the journey. There is, however, no way out, for you as a human being are not the master of your fate. Only the living grace will accompany you into the heart regions from where there is no return. That which is undeniable and acting out of its own necessity will ask of you more than what you as a human being can offer. The depth of surrender is unfathomable.

This is a private calling. You travel the path alone. The enduring values of the race, including those of hearth and home and mother and child, play no role here. As you turn your back on what is most sacred in the human condition, you will have nothing to go on but that which always remains unseen, and there is no “other” in whose lap you can lay your head. You are the veil which love wraps around itself; you are the illusion who must face the truth.

What Does God Do All Day?

What Does God Do All Day?

Maybe God is looking for folks like you and me who are turning over every rock in creation looking for the answer, the thing that justifies and makes possible everything we experience. Maybe. It’s hard to separate the person asking these questions from the world in which we walk around asking them. But never mind; it probably doesn’t matter. There are things to do, and it doesn’t matter who God is anyway because, well, there are things I need to do to make this world palatable to my sensitive skin, and one day I am going to die, and if I am lucky a handful of people will weep and remember. Thinking about it doesn’t help.

Then on a good day when the sky is a deep blue and the silence inside cannot find a bottom, something stirs and you  find yourself free of questioning mode, and it’s the thing itself just existing in the nether place, and the thing is stirring and you know that waves arise out of it mysteriously because it doesn’t know that all creation is bursting on the scene making itself more specific, that is, turning itself into you and me, as it goes along just because; and all these dimensions of deity emerge in each questioning condition. This way and that way; never mind; it’s too much. Thinking about it doesn’t help.

So, how about we do this? The infinite universe is just what it is, who cares where it came from, and we let scientists and like-minded souls take on that exploration over limitless numbers of lifetimes diving deep into all those dimensions and dream worlds that precede dense matter, getting excited about new horizons always dawning in this created universe, lorded over by its own deity, to whom you bow down when you make your way into its presence. Good luck to these beings forever. What a mighty gesture arising out of the infinite as its creation! But not for me, now, sitting in an armchair looking out over the lake, which is as good a place as any for the knowing absolute spirit to rise into one of its creatures, no mind what it is doing elsewhere or when, no matter how many galaxies are spinning around out there or living creatures are moving about on their unique journeys; all that arising out of the same absolute spirit that’s nestled itself deep into my heart, come from the boundless within up to the surface, where the chunkiest parts of creation lumber along, and finds me, a chunky mortal creature who has given up forever the turning over of rocks. That’s a lot to keep track of, me thinks.

An Inventory for Accessing the Mysterious Present

I have stood alone for years with what you are about to read. As an inventory, it is not meant to engage your mind in an intellectual colloquy about the nature of reality or what happens after we leave this world. Everything is here and now and meant solely to lead you to the last item.

Every day I am astonished by my personal existence.

I accept that the life I am living can never be fulfilled.

I am ready to drop the veil of earthplanet plane and accept as my Self the illusion-free reality of my godbeing core.

I surrender my life story as an illusion of the veil.

I surrender love as an illusion of the veil.

I ask my divine self to remove the veils that hide the spiritual universe from my vision.

I realize that I and the world of my experience are a module of perception, one among many dream worlds that collectively comprise earthplanet plane.

My module of perception along with all other modules of perception that constitute earthplanet plane are a dream vision rising out of a cosmic lord on another plane of existence.

What questions do you expect to be answered when you pass from this world?

I am ready to step outside of everything I know.

No matter where I stand, I am always here.

I can access my identity as a godbeing traveler of the quantum cosmos.

The stars and planets turn around me by an intent that is not my own; I think and feel and act through the grace of that same intent. 

I have stood alone and awake to the great beyond.

I have felt the searing gaze of infinity penetrate my mind.

I have felt the rapture of the heart’s divine song.

I know that I live and die in one divine breath.

I remember the ancient ones, who created the passageways of travel through which I will move as a liberated soul into the great beyond.

I remember gathering with enlightened souls on the shores of the unknown ready to move out together into the great beyond.

What do you expect to find when you pass from this world?

Are you ready to choose your manner of passage out of earthplanet plane?

Do either of these options for passage into the great beyond feel familiar to you? Eternal life in the absolute spirit, or many lifetimes in a created cosmos of form as it lives and dies in the void of the original nothing?

Does your heart feel bound to the lord of this cosmos?

What did you expect to find when you pass from this world?

Can you feel the deep mystery passing through you right now? 

On a subplane of your planetary field, human spirits are gathering to learn the art of quantum travel. Many have come and are now exploring deep mysteries with the ancient masters through limited voyages out into the beyond and very highly structured incarnations into earthplanet plane. As daunting as quantum travel is to these novice travelers, nothing can abuse them of their intent. Be at peace with this truth. It always is.
