The attractive charms of maya and worldly life

I spoke to a potential wife/fiance tonight. And I found myself developing a subtle form of attachment. And then I found myself thinking that this is not good, I am getting attached to her. Truly, the charms of the world hold a power of attraction. The attraction to the charms of the world, prevent you from seeing the world for what it really is. Nothing but a river of suffering and disappointment, with a few moments of relief and fleeting joys. Do not put your hopes here. There is a reason it is referred to as an illusion. For illusion attracts by its charm and deceptive appearance.

Better to stay out.

Excerpt - Consciousness and the Absolute

The universe has its limits

Everything we know has parameters and perimeters. It can be defined in a certain way, we can say how big it is, what color it has, at what speed it moves, what it's shaped like. Everything is defined and confined. Even the universe has outer limits! The universe is enormous, yet we are able to calculate its approximate size. The universe is really a confined space. The universe, though it is vast, has its limits. In our eyes of course, it has incredible proportions, but it is nevertheless limited and confined.

Paradigm Shifting:
From Time to Timelessness

The Absolute is absolute emptiness, a space without confines. The Absolute is boundless space. It is not space like we know it, it is the emptiness that lies beyond the edges of the universe, it is the space in which the universe expands. It is the home of the universe. It is absolute space: 'absolute' because there are no outer limits. This is not an emptiness that relates to fullness, that would be a relative emptiness. This emptiness could not be filled with a billion universes. Absolute emptiness, theoretically, can effortlessly accommodate an infinite number of baby and parallel universes. This is space without periphery, without boundaries.

As consciousness is life's first principle, as life begins with consciousness, the question "What is truth?" becomes concrete by asking "What is consciousness?" If you want to be clear on your existence, you will have to consider the nature of consciousness. What is the origin of consciousness? How is it possible?

Consciousness is a quality of open space. Absolute space is so open that it becomes conscious, has to be conscious in its nature. It is so wide open that the very openness makes it conscious. It is so absolutely open, so impressionable, that it is conscious. Consciousness is not a substance; it is not made out of anything, since it is made out of absolute emptiness! Absolute emptiness, absolute space is the origin of consciousness. One could say that consciousness is an epi-phenomenon of the Absolute. Consciousness seems to exist, when in fact it is simply a quality, a property, a side-effect of absolute emptiness.

The question What happens when we die? is not a very clear question, because what exactly do we mean by we? It is a lot more specific to ask "What happens to consciousness when our body dies?", "What happens to consciousness when the body, our door to experience, closes?". Nothing happens to consciousness, it is just that experiences are no longer possible. And when new life is born, there are new experiences. With every new birth, the consciousness-property of the Absolute is revealed.

Consciousness as such is never born, absolute emptiness does not need to be born, does not need to be created: it simply exists as the truth behind existence. Absolute space is absolute time, eternity, time without beginning and without end. With every death, consciousness seems to disappear. It doesn't truly disappear, because absolute emptiness cannot possibly disappear. It never dies, its time is never up.

Absolute Consciousness

Like experiences are not possible without consciousness, is consciousness possible without experiences? What does the term 'consciousness' mean when all experiences drop away, when there is no notion, no thought, no feeling, no memory, no dream, no awareness of anything whatsoever? The truth of life, of you, of me and of existence is absolute space, boundlessness, absolute freedom. It is the origin and foundation of consciousness, it is why consciousness is possible. The light of that absolute consciousness never extinguishes. It is absolute, because it is not even dependent on experience, on life.

Life and the absolute

The necessary condition for dream is sleep. You need to be asleep to dream. So if life is nothing but a series of infinite dreams, then there must be something that is forever asleep. That alone is real and is the absolute. Forever asleep and untouched by events of the dream. The only purpose of the dream is to point to the absolute.

Action

Is there a definite moment when action arises?

Action arises the moment the factors restraining action are removed.

Removal of restraint results in action.

To retrain is to deliberate. Removal of restrain is to act.

What to do after realization?

Once you return to the One, it is realized that there was no 'you' in the first place. So 'you' are the One. And what does the One do? It expands into creation. So you want to go back to the One, but the One wants to expand into creation. Hence you expand into creation as the messenger of the One. What else is there to do?

You become the outward expression of the One. Because that is what the One expresses. Creation and expansion is the fragrance of the One and you become the outward expression. No more hiding in caves or solitary retreats, but full on involvement with creation, in service of the One. This is not for the weak.

Follow your heart, always!

Awakening others - excerpt

You are not yet awake, but you can learn HOW to awaken. Very simply the Holy
Spirit teaches you to awaken others. As you see them waken, you will learn WHAT
WAKING MEANS. And because you have willed to wake them, their gratitude, and their
appreciation of what you have given them, will TEACH YOU ITS VALUE. THEY will
become the witnesses to your reality, as YOU were created witnesses to God’s.

Law of One

I am Ra. The Law of One, though beyond the limitations of name, as you call vibratory sound complexes, may be approximated by stating that all things are one, that there is no polarity, no right or wrong, no disharmony, but only identity. All is one, and that one is love/light, light/love, the Infinite Creator.

One of the primal distortions of the Law of One is that of healing. Healing occurs when a mind/body/spirit complex realizes, deep within itself, the Law of One; that is, that there is no disharmony, no imperfection; that all is complete and whole and perfect. Thus, the intelligent infinity within this mind/body/spirit complex re-forms the illusion of body, mind, or spirit to a form congruent with the Law of One. The healer acts as energizer or catalyst for this completely individual process.
