Divine Truth

Ahhh…..Facade. Sadly, we must part.

[00:12:49.06] A.J.: ……we lie to ourselves; we lie to others; we present a lie. Quite frequently you’re feeling, inside, one thing but you say another thing to a person. Frequently, that happens……. Somebody comes up and asks you ‘are you doing this or are you doing that?’ You assess whether you might get attacked; or you might get abused; or you might get whatever saying what you really want to say, and so you don’t say it. Right? It’s presenting a lie to others. The facade justifies lies constantly…..It’s willing to kill for itself. You’re harming people every single moment of the day, even, for the protection of this facade. Because the terror and the pain, the false belief that you can’t cope with both of those things, just causes you to feel that lieing is justified.

Excerpt from “Developing my loving self” seminar

IN THE SHADOWS

In the shadows of my life
I see wisdom shining through
Hidden deep inside me
Just like there is in you

This wisdom can remind me
Of all the things that I am
All the things that excite me
All the things that I can

I can decide my future
I can love and appreciate
I can deeply and completely
Enjoy everything that’s great

Like breathing and relaxing
In my comfy bed at night
Like revelling in my playground
The streets paved with life
Like having love surround me
My friends and family
Like everything I ask for
Coming surely as can be

I work and I worry
I wonder and I think
I exercise my free will
And sometimes I forget to blink

Blinking for a moment
Is what brings me clarity
Making everything So clear
It seems like charity

In the shadow of my life
Lurks the answers that are best
If I listen and be still
I’ll get the blueprint to my quest

‘Blissful Ignorance’

[00:24:49.27] Mary: Yep. Alright. Again, we’re only a page into the chapter, but he brings up something else that’s quite important. Just there in the next paragraph, he begins to say : Activity is the natural heritage of the soul, excelsior its motto, and holiness its goal; thus their united endeavour had been to arouse in me a great desire to reach out after the ideals which ever lie on before; to realise the fact that the legitimate satisfaction of man can only be achieved when, like the Psalmist of old, he awakes to the consciousness that he has attained to the likeness of God.

[00:25:38.01] A.J.: Mmm. Some pretty important things there, actually. Particularly this side of the activity of the soul. Like, I see a lot of people, on earth in particular, in this state of what you would classify as ‘blissful ignorance’ and ‘blissful desire to remain inactive’; and it’s a very temporary bliss, because nothing really comes of it. No real progress is ever made; and on top of that, many of these people arrive in the spirit world in the hells, because of their lack of desire; and they don’t know anything about desire, in fact. They neither know what it looks like to have a desire unfulfilled; or fulfilled; nor do they know what it looks like to have a desire in the wrong direction compared to the right direction; or in a loving direction compared to an unloving direction. And because they don’t understand desire at all, they sit in places of stagnation for such long periods of time; and they are some of the most difficult people to help in the spirit world, actually. These people who sit in the stagnation; in the desire for ignorance; and the desire for not doing anything, just sit there, hoping that some external force will come to their aid; and it never does. Until they learn the lesson that activity is required on their part before any real change is going to occur.
