So let’s now get into something a little meatier than essential oils and Amazon, ok? Let’s talk a little bit here about how the Creator has allowed its own Being to be manifest as light energy which everything in the world of form is basically made from. What this means is that the Creator’s own Being is embedded within everything, and He/She/It (for not knowing of a better expression for the Creator at the moment) has also allowed the creation of self-aware beings to have a freewill, and they are meant to use this freewill in their service as co-creators who bring about the unfoldment of the world of form from within themselves (this, of course, is why Jesus said, “The kingdom of God is within you”).
Now, co-creators have two ways or spheres with which they can exercise their co-creative abilities. One of these is ONENESS, in which they co-create within the framework of God’s laws. This means that everything they create will raise up themselves and all life, bringing God’s overall plan closer to manifestation. By a being exercising its freewill within THIS sphere, they do not give up any freedom. On the contrary, for as Jesus illustrated in his parable about the talents, creative abilities are multiplied and we actually gain GREATER CREATIVE FREEDOM as we walk in unity with God.
The other option for co-creative beings is to exercise their creative abilities OUTSIDE of the sphere or way of Oneness, and they do this by acting as individuals separated from God. This separation is not possible in the upper dimensions of the spiritual world because the vibrational ether in those realms is of such high resonance that the illusion of separateness from God (and from one another) cannot be maintained. Earth essentially is a pocket where the vibration of the light of God is so low though that the illusion of separation from God seems entirely plausible. This illusion can be maintained here only because the density of matter here prevents thoughts from being instantaneously manifest, and this gives strength to the illusion of a separation between consciousness and matter and it gives strength to the illusion that individuals are not linked to others through their collective consciousness.
This illusion of separation then gives rise to the further illusions which lead people to think that they can take certain physical actions and escape the consequences of them, meaning, that they can do things unto others without having others (or the universe by the Law of Attraction) do it unto them. This, of course, is an incorrect perception, for no one can escape the consequences of his or her actions. When you exercise your creative abilities in a way that limits other parts of life and seeks to raise up the separate self, you diminish your creative power and you limit your freedom.
Of course, when people are blinded by the illusion of separation they fail to see any of this. They can though, for a time, maintain the illusion that they are raising the separate self in comparison to other separate selves and believe that this is a good thing. Some people even maintain the illusion that they gain freedom only by going against God’s will (the will of the external god of their own making).
What I’m getting at here is that we can co-create in a way that raises up all life, including ourselves, or we can de-create in a way that diminishes all life, again, including ourself. The first option should be the obvious choice, but once beings are blinded by the illusion of a separate self, it is not. The illusion that you can gain an advantage by raising up self in comparison to others becomes the “obvious” choice for most people, and out of this illusion an epic struggle is born.
This epic struggle, for the most part, is pointless. Many beliefs and myths portray the world as being locked in an epic struggle between two opposing forces, myths and beliefs like those found in ancient mythology (such as the Iliad and the Bhagavad Gita) and in modern mythology (such as Star Wars and Lord of the Rings). Throughout the ages, many people have looked at the world and have concluded that this portrayal is true and that there is an epic struggle between powerful entities of good and evil. There is surely a struggle going on, but it is not between the true God and some powerful entity that is His opposite. When you begin to glimpse God as infinite and formless, then you can see that because that which is infinite cannot be divided, it can have no opposite. In God, there is only Oneness, so how can there be a struggle? The Infinite God does not see itself as opposed by anything, meaning that there is no struggle within God’s sphere of Oneness.
How is the struggle born then? It is birthed when we leave Oneness by creating a sense of distance from it by defining two opposing polarities that will forever be separated. As soon as those two polarities are defined (this is what eating from “the tree of the knowledge of good and evil” means) the epic struggle between them is the inevitable result. The promise told to people with regard to the struggle is that there are two sides and that one represents ultimate good and the other ultimate evil and that by aligning ourselves with ultimate good and by fighting against the people who are aligned with evil, we, as a separate individuals, gain a distinct advantage. People are taught that eventually ultimate good will win and then all who helped destroy ultimate evil will be rewarded. Yeah? It doesn’t work that way though.
On a deeper level, this promise of a reward for a separate self is an illusion since the separate self is an illusion. Of course, no one blinded by separation can see this. Yet even those blinded by separation can see that if the promise of a reward was false, it would be silly of them to fight for one side and against the other. Consider how the promise could be fulfilled? According to them it can only happen when good finally destroys evil. On a deeper level though, what human beings call “good” was created in a polarity with what they call “evil.” The two are inseparable, meaning that one can never destroy the other. The only way for the epic struggle to end is if both are transcended! In other words, Good does not cancel out evil, but in truth, the reality of God cancels out the ILLUSION of the dualistic struggle.
It simply is not possible that good can win over evil, Beloved, for “good” and “evil” are relative terms that cannot exist independently of each other. They were created together and can only be “erased” together. Get it? You might say that ultimate good can win, but even that is an incorrect use of words. Ultimate good (the indivisible God) is not engaged in any struggle for He recognizes no division, His eyes behold no iniquity. The ultimate God is not trying to defeat the devil, for God recognizes the unreality of the low resonance existence (manifestation) of that thing and sees no need to engage it. The devil is not a threat to the Creator. The devil is simply irrelevant.
I’m saying here that the epic struggle is A GRAND ILLUSION that has the effect of sucking people into activities that eat up their attention and energy without having the potential of giving them what they seek. Even spiritual seekers can be sucked into this struggle by thinking that they are fighting for the ultimate cause, fighting for God’s cause, and most of them have their attention and energy consumed in the struggle.
This brings us to an interesting point, for some people will say that we have been encouraged by God to engage in the struggle by decreeing “against” certain dark forces and calling forth their judgment. In order to understand this, we need to understand that “the goal” is to raise the consciousness of all people EVERYWHERE, and in order for this to happen people have to be met at the level of consciousness where THEY ARE AT and there be given teachings that take them up from there. Until recently, very few people on this planet have been ready for what I am presenting here.
In other words, teachings from the past have been adapted to what people could grasp, and the fact is, even the epic struggle can be used to promote spiritual progress. I’m saying this because one of the greatest enemies of progress is that people become comfortable in a certain lifestyle and simply want to enjoy life in the material realm. Throughout the ages, the epic struggle has indeed had the effect of pulling people out of that comfortability and “forcing” them to increase their skills in order to “defeat” the enemy. I’m saying that even though the struggle is an illusion it can still be used to promote spiritual growth. The downside, of course, is that once people become epic-struggle warriors they can become stuck in that role for eons before they finally move on to become sages, seeking peace through the mind and heart rather than seeking it through victory in war.
I guess that I’ll end this here by saying that the key to true freedom is to eventually rise (in consciousness) entirely above the struggle. Sure, teachings with regard to this have been veiled in the past, but the message has been there for those who have eyes that can read between the lines.
That all said, I think that people’s buttons are going to be pushed in such a major way in the coming days that the intensity of the struggle will help them to finally realize that they have had enough of it – enough of war and fighting and separateness from their fellow men, and realize that they’re sick to death of losing the light-energy that they constantly mis-qualify in struggling. I may just write a little bit about that – the mis-qualification of pure energy.
