The ONE Life

Featured

Never, never think or believe that you are living only a human life of your personal own and/or that you are not actually living the divine life of God, despite all outer appearances to the contrary.
🤔

REFLECT ON THIS . . .

Contemplate this truth always.
The life that you are living at this present moment, including all its past and future moments, is GOOD and PERFECT, despite how problematic, painful, despicable or abhorrent it may appear humanly to you, because it is God’s life, GOD LIFE — the infinite perfect life of God — that is living itself in and through you, as You!

The failure to see, realize and understand that statement of truth does not make it an untruth or a falsehood. It merely shows you that the finite human mind with which you are trying to comprehend that spiritual truth does not have the state of awakened total clarity that exists in the stillness and silence of the divine Mind of God. This is the reason why we meditate — to enter into the state of pure clarity and receptivity that exists and operates within the very stillness and silence of the divine Mind, the nature of our infinite spiritual mind.

Do this then:

  1. In silent contemplation, acknowledge and be grateful that it is God’s life and not your personal own that you are living, for there cannot be nor is there any life other than, separate from, or apart from God.
     
  2. Then, in the inner joy that will subsequently fill your being, rejoice, rejoice in that awareness quietly in your heart, simply for the very reason that it is so.

That is all you need to experience and have: The felt intuitive awareness of spiritual truth. There is no need to mentally rationalize or intellectualize spiritual truth. That is not the purpose or function of spiritual contemplation. In terms of modern-day neuroscience, you merely have to bring the conscious “awareness of truth” past the left-brain hemisphere of the intellect realm beyond the “alpha-theta bridge” and into the right-brain hemisphere of the intuitive mind, to experience the conscious “awareness of truth” through the theta brainwave pattern level of the mind-brain continuum where it can begin to resonate deeply in consciousness and come alive in your individual experience. Make your practice utterly simple and firmly keep it true.
😇

Make your practice simple
and keep it true.


“Whatever purifies you is the right path, I will not try to define it.”
~ Rumi ~


Every individual human being is a faithful authentic reflection of the God-Self in the divine and infinite Mind of God. Since God-Self’s nature is life itself, every single reflected individuation of the God-Self in the divine Mind becomes alive and conscious, and eventually self-aware as the One Life which singularly casts an infinity of its own reflections in the Mirror-Mind of life and existence. This is the true and real meaning of mystical oneness. Remember that as you contemplate THE ONE LIFE of God. There may be many ways to practice attaining the realization of The One Life, but whichever vehicle you choose to ride on the mystical road to wholeness and fullness of being, there is only and will always only be The One Life that is God.

The Man in the Mirror (a spiritual fantasy image)
“Aha! It’s You.”
The Creator looks at Its own living “image and likeness” in the mirror of Its Mind.

Your lifetime now is the right path for you; otherwise, it would not even be your life at all today. Therefore, let it be the most purifying agent for your spiritual transformation.
~ Marc of Contemplative Pathways ~

Solitaire: The Only Game in Town

Featured

So, you want to become a mystic?


Then, be prepared to play SOLITAIRE — the only game in town. 😏 Shall we play?


In this business of “mystical oneness,” I have learned to play SOLITAIRE over and over and over again, time and time again. There is nobody else playing… but the Self, your Self. There is no other player, no “other self” to play with — only the one Self playing solitaire.

Solitaire Card Game


Referring to Neil Sedaka’s song “Solitaire,” I find that I have become that lonely man: A heart that cared but went unshared, until it died within the silence. Neil’s song “Solitaire” resonates strongly with me for that very reason. But, thank God, there will always be Neil to comfort you and me with his song, as we play solitaire.
🥰


Why must one’s journey along the mystical path always have to be a game of “solitaire”?  Why must fulfillment be found in only the one Self, and in nothing else or in no one else?  Why is “solitaire” the only game in town?

Indeed, although it seems that life goes all around us everywhere in a flurry of things, people, activities and events, the truth is: We’re just playing SOLITAIRE.   How ironic that is!

But Jesus replied, “Foxes have dens to live in, and birds have nests, but the Son of Man has no place even to lay his head.” (Luke 9:58, NLT2)

THAT is a lonely man.

I AM What I Am

Featured

Sometimes a song* comes along your way with a powerful message that it resonates so very deeply in your soul. Here is one such song — full of pure authenticity, absolute world defiance, total self-esteem and infinite pride in one’s Self.

I am what I am
I am my own special creation
So come, take a look
Give me the hook or the ovation
It’s my world that I’d want to have a little pride in
My world and it’s not a place I have to hide in
Life’s not worth a damn till you can say
Hey world, I am what I am

I am what I am
I don’t need praise, I don’t need pity
I bang my own drum
Some think it’s noise (loud), I think it’s pretty
And so what if I love each feather and each spangle
Why not try and see things from a different angle
Your life is a sham till you can say
Hey world, I am what I am

I am what I am
And what I am needs no excuses
I deal my own deck
Sometimes the ace, sometimes the deuces
It’s my life and there’s no return and no deposit
One life, so it’s time to open up your closet
Your life is a sham till you can say
Hey world, I am what I am

🙃

👩‍🎤 And there’s no one better than a good old tall shake of a Shirley Bassey to bring home its message. 😍

Life’s not worth a damn till you can say: “Hey world, I am what I am.

I am what I am, and what I am needs no excuses.
I deal my own deck: Sometimes the ace, sometimes the deuces.

It’s my life and there’s no return and no deposit!

ONE LIFE, so it’s time to open up your closet.
Your life is a sham till you can say: “Hey world, I AM what I am.
🥰

*Note:
The song comes from “La Cage aux Folles,” a Broadway musical with a book by Harvey Fierstein and lyrics and music by Jerry Herman. It is based on the 1973 French play of the same name by Jean Poiret. It focuses on a gay couple: Georges, the manager of a Saint-Tropez nightclub featuring drag entertainment, and Albin, his romantic partner and star attraction, and the farcical adventures that ensue when Georges’s son, Jean-Michel, brings home his fiancée’s ultra-conservative parents to meet them. La cage aux folles literally means “the cage of mad women;” however, folles is also a slang term for effeminate homosexuals (queens). Read a related post at Facebook.

The “Imago Dei”

FeaturedCreation of Adam by Michaelangelo

Our appreciation to InspiringPhilosophy for posting the video above on YouTube.


So God created man in his own image; he created him in the image of God… Genesis 1:27 (CSBBible)


The imago Dei (“image of God”) does imply a relationship between God and man: a unique relationship of spiritual oneness by which our humanity or human nature is called upon to become the externalized fullness of our inherent divinity in Self-realization. We do not merely resemble God spiritually: We are identical in essence with the very Spirit essence of God, consistent with the nondualistic oneness taught in true mysticism.


In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was with God in the beginning…. The Word became flesh and dwelt among us. We observed his glory, the glory as the one and only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth. John 1:1-2,14 (CSBBible)


The quality of “understanding morality” should be taken to mean the ability to discern the truth of this oneness from the falsehood of illusory duality, and ultimately to become the embodiment of this Truth. This entails the process which is referred to as enlightenment or spiritual illumination.

As to how we as human beings may be different from animals or other sentient beings that are also deemed to have been made in the “image of God,” the difference is only one of degrees by which we have become self-aware and ultimately attain the “realization of God” (God-realization).  Thus, spiritual traditions such as Hinduism speak of the god Vishnu incarnating in a number of evolutionary forms or species until he incarnates as the perfect man, Rama, and then finally the God-realized divine avatar, Krishna.

When the living God looks at the “image and likeness” of Itself in Its Mirror-Mind, God sees Itself as THE MAN IN THE MIRROR.

The Man in the Mirror (a spiritual fantasy image)
“Aha! It’s You.”
The Creator looks at Its own “image and likeness” in the mirror of Its Mind.
MAN IN THE MIRROR: “Aha! Gotcha, God. It’s you all along!” 😀
GOD: “WTF. Good God, help. My own good-looking image and likeness in my mirror-mind is alive and aware!”

Is God having a fright day? LOL. 😂
