The One Thing You Really Need To Know In Life

Life is lived from the within to the without.

My biggest problem is I don’t even know the process of my existence. The energy that drives the process of life in me does not come from the food I eat. That energy is only used to build and keep the physical body running. There is an energy that I call “the ghost in the machinery” that keeps the process of life going in me. The body’s heart beats, lungs breathe, digestion occurs, and much more happens without my conscious intervention. How do I know and begin to understand “the ghost in the machinery”?

First I need to be in a deep meaningful dialog with myself.

I then need to assess what my skills and talents are.

When I know myself well I am ready to start exploring “the ghost in the machinery”.

I start with Genesis 1:1 the first two words:

ראשׁית rê’shîyth ray-sheeth’ the first principal thing

אלהים ‘ĕlôhîym el-o-heem’ the Supreme One

Eloheem is a plural masculine noun used with singular masculine verbs. This is contrary to rules of Hebrew grammar. The plural is used to show majesty, honor, or fullness. One not as a separate entity; but as Complete Collective Consciousness.

Genesis 1:1 Created by the Elohim were the heavens and the earth.
Genesis 1:2 Yet the earth became a chaos and vacant, and darkness was on the surface of the submerged chaos. Yet the spirit of the Elohim is vibrating over the surface of the water.
Genesis 1:3 And saying is the Elohim, “Become light!” And it is becoming light.

Spirit רוּח rûach roo’-akh wind, breath, a region of the sky, mind

Light אור ‘ôr ore illumination; to be or make luminous (be, give, or show light) enlightened, set on fire, shine.

Let enlightenment or illumination become; this is the first action of the Supreme One. This is the same principal that Buddha called enlightenment or illumination.

I see now that all creatures have perfect enlightenment – but they do not know it. Buddha

 

Imprisoned Splendor

Truth is within ourselves; it takes no rise
From outward things, whate’er you may believe.
There is an inmost center in us all,
Where truth abides in fullness; and around,
Wall upon wall, the gross flesh hems it in,
This perfect, clear perception which is truth.
A baffling and perverting carnal mesh
Binds it, and makes all error: and,

TO KNOW,

Rather consists in opening out a way
Whence the imprisoned splendor may escape,
Than in effecting an entry for a light
Supposed to be without.

– Robert Browning (1812-1889) from Paracelsus

 

Perception Cleansed

If the doors of perception were cleansed every thing would appear to man as it is, Infinite. For man has closed himself up, till he sees all things thro’ narrow chinks of his cavern.

– William Blake, The Marriage of Heaven and Hell

How do I open out a way Whence the imprisoned splendor may escape?

Exodus 3:13 Now Moses said to the One, Elohim: Behold! When I am coming to the sons of Israel, and I say to them, The Elohim of your fathers sends me to you, then they will say to me, What about His name? What shall I say to them?
Exodus 3:14 Then Elohim spoke to Moses: I shall come to be just as I am coming to be. And He said: Thus shall you say to the sons of Israel, I-Shall-Come-to-Be has sent me to you.

היה hâyâh haw-yaw’ to exist; that is, be or become, come to pass

I shall come to be just as I am coming to be היה hâyâh haw-yaw’ אשׁר ‘ăsher ash-er’ היה hâyâh haw-yaw’ a lot of translations read I AM that I AM.

The Hebrews repeated a word to make it superlative. Like Isa 26:3 You will keep in perfect peace the mind stayed on You, for he trusts in You. שׁלום shâlôm shaw-lome’ meaning peace is repeated to mean perfect peace.

“I AM Being that is Becoming” is the very essence that the Supreme One placed within me. As I allow enlightenment or illumination to flow from within me to the without I also experience “I AM Being that is Becoming”.

THE TRUTH WILL MAKE YOU FREE

John 8:32 “and you will come to know the Truth (Reality) by intimate experience, and the Truth (Reality) will liberate and make (set) you free!”

What is this truth?

I am an essence from the Supreme One which inhabits a physical body at the center of my being .

What is the nature of this freedom?

A lot of times I want to experience freedom “from” something. That is not the nature of this freedom.

This is the freedom “to be” whatever the Supreme One places in me. That essence or pattern of energy is my real identity. This is what I need to open up to. There were a lot of times in my life that I tried to pattern my life after someone else’s life; it never felt right trying to live someone else’s identity. The only way that my life can be fulfilled is by living the pattern of energy at the center of my being; using my unique skills and talents.

Opening up to my real identity means setting aside the physical body and mind; emptying myself of all my physical cares, and contemplating the wonder of “the ghost in the machinery”.

Luke 17:21 Neither will they say, Behold, it is here! or, behold, it is there! for behold, the kingdom of Elohim is within/among you.

This is a very interesting verse because it is using the singular and plural “you”; to tell me that the kingdom of Elohim is within/among you collectively. This means that “the ghost in the machinery” is a collective process; I like to call it Complete Collective Consciousness.

As I now contemplate the wonder of “the ghost in the machinery” I have to consider the lilies of the field and the birds of the air. This is not just about me! I have to open up to everything!

Genesis 1:2 Yet the earth became a chaos and vacant, and darkness was on the surface of the submerged chaos. Yet the spirit of the Elohim is vibrating over the surface of the water.
Genesis 1:3 And saying is the Elohim, “Become light!” And it is becoming light.

Genesis 1:2-3 is the perfect visualization for contemplating “the ghost in the machinery” I must travel to “a chaos and vacant, and darkness was on the surface of the submerged chaos”. I must join as “the spirit of the Elohim is vibrating over the surface of the water”. Then Elohim will say “Become light!” and I am becoming light.
