Light As A Source of Life

Light as a source of life may be that which is the essence of universal consciousness. Remarkably, according to Terrence McKenna, photons of light apparently have no antiparticles.

Does this imply that there is no dualism in the world of light? If there is no opposite to light, which is our essence, then darkness may not be darkness at all, but merely light distanced from itself. If we are made of light, and light has no opposite, then our fundamental essence of light might be all there is. Thus, our perceived experience of duality may not be a split or polarization of light and dark at all, but instead a degree of how far our awareness can distance itself from the light that we are.

Consciousness As a Movie: Holographic Universe?

"Our only hang up is that we have become attached to this world and we have become caught up in an energetic (emotional turmoil) as things apparently die, and change, and are transient. Yet everything – every creature, your worst enemy, your best friend, and you – at the deepest level is the unified field and that is why we experience this change: because the fundamental level of who we are is perpetually radiating and collapsing back in on itself in an infinite feedback loop causing the holographic world to flicker and change before us like a beautiful, infinitely intricate, and magnificent movie played just for us.

Yet even the rate of this movie is not fixed. It is relative as Einstein stated, because when we have increased energy and have the exhilaration of new love, or the unbridled passion and enthusiasm which arises when we engage in following and living our dreams, we tap into higher energy which brings us closer to the unified field and thus the rate of time noticeably speeds up according to our own perception. As the old adage goes, “time flies when you’re having fun.”

Clay Tabernacle

This inner and outer drama
Screenplay by my Father
This Divine masquerade
The end of the self charade
Christ is revealed within
What a mysterious new creation
What an astonishing integration
From the former mind
Of self and separation
A heretical debacle?
The clay Tabernacle

Empty and Powerless

 I am empty and powerless. Almost any attempt to save myself by any superior behavior, technique, belonging system, morality, role, strong ideological belief, or religious devotion will not work. It will actually lead to regression. What the saints and mystics say is that some event, struggle, relationship, or suffering in your life has to lead you to the edge of your own resources. There has to be something that you by yourself cannot understand, fix, control, change, or even begin to deal with. It is the raw experience of “I cannot do this.” All I can do at this point is wait and ask and trust.
This is where I learn real patience, compassion, and forgiveness. I don’t know how else I learn to forgive other people until I see seventy-times-seven my own brokenness, my own incapacity to love and, in this stage, my inability to do anything about it except throw myself into the arms of mercy and love (Luke 7:47).
This is the darkness of faith, and now I can trust that this darkness is a much better teacher than supposed certainty or rightness. God is about to become very real. Some even call this “God’s Waiting Room!”
