A Primer for Life Inside the Invisible Room Part I (Revised)

The invisible room is our divine source and center, our piece of the absolute spirit. This is where we and the rest of the universe come from. From inside the mind, the world is a planet, third from the sun. From inside the invisible room, our personal life and the universe as a whole arise as a module of perception, a creation, waiting for us to learn how to use it. Listening to The Invisible Room Podcast accelerates the process of transferring our viewpoint of life from the mind to the divine source and center. This transfer is a deep, life consuming process. Listening lets the higher self know that that’s what we want. 
Why might one be reluctant to move into the invisible room?
Much of humanity is beset with mental conflicts, delusions, and emotional turmoil to such a degree that personal thought cannot maintain the idea of a higher self, much less moving into that point of view. The heart is darkened by thoughts and behaviors that cloud over the higher dimensions of life. Higher life is, nevertheless, at work with these struggling beings. No one is left out of the grand drama of existence.

On its own, the mind is quite capable of coming up with good reasons for shifting into a higher reality. They will sound good. One can believe them. But eventually those reasons become another expression of the ego’s desire for self-preservation. It tries to convince us that the higher self is a collection of beautiful thoughts (scriptures, ceremonies, traditions, and the lives of saints and sages). We know how good these spiritual garments feel, for we have worn them for many lifetimes. We feel especially comforted in belonging to groups who dress like we do and who drink from the same cultural wells. We linger in these beautiful minds for as long as it takes to learn that reality and the indicators of reality are not the same thing, until we realize that membership in the group can only tell us what to believe, that following the pathway of the spirit through history ultimately takes us to a dead end. 

One of the most deceptive barriers to permanently entering the invisible room rises when we label as "spiritual" our life and lifework. We fear sacrificing that hard earned identity for something that is independent of others’ expectations or the reality descriptions of ancient and contemporary seers. Being on our own is a truly daunting prospect. Discovering that our real identity is something that we cannot be conscious of is an existential crisis that must inevitably be faced. This situation requires faith absolute. The mind is not a tool for self-enlightenment.

How does it happen? What can I do to set things in motion? 

Spiritual seekers eventually realize that the mind is a prison. The soul reaches out toward the sun through the bars of its thinking and cries out to be free. The sun hears and sends loving spirits to open the door. These loving spirits set the soul on fire with the fire of life and teach it how to prepare for the intervention of spirit absolute. Spirit alone can pull it across the threshold, for the self of the thinking mind is existentially different from the self-existing glory of the invisible room. Spiritual transition is not movement from one mental place to another. Spiritual transition is a transformation from one existential condition to another. Existential transformation is the work of the universe. This is what we see when we get to the door. 

Listening to The Invisible Room Podcast raises flags in our spirit field so that higher beings can see us and help us take those steps. With every effort, we feel stuck. With every movement, we feel free. "I can't do it" ultimately becomes "Let it happen." The story of "me" becomes the story of everything.
