Would You Choose to be Free?

A question for a generation at the precipice of awakening:

Some time ago, we were In-Joying some time in the beautiful outside patio of a nice coffee shop in Orange County, CA, and were engaged in conversation with our server, a young man in his mid 20's, with a lovely personality. He was living with his parents and enjoying a very comfortable life, by any standard. I asked him,  "Would you rather be taken care of? Or would you choose to be Free?".

He thought about it for a bit and replied,   "I want both"!!!!    I assured him that the 2 were mutually exclusive, at which point he indicated that he was currently quite satisfied with his present situation. And who could blame him?
The question is really about 
"Spiritual Adulthood"
 which implies an unconditional responsibility for EVERYTHING, for
everything is a child of your consciousness
born into existence by you... the you that now plays the spiritual role of "Parent".

In that state of consciousness, you do not choose freedom... it is an inherent part of the state. It is not the freedom "From" something. That is how our culture generally discusses freedom and it is not possible to be free "From" a "Thing". Your awareness of the "Thing" makes it active in your vibration and alive in your world. And, you do not need freedom from something that you have dominion over, so there is no need to discard anything. If you had the power to create it, you have the power to re-make it into something you decide is "good" to you. This "Adulthood" is "Inclusive", not "Exclusive"

In this spiritual adulthood, there is no room for the childish toys of religions, authorities, experts, higher-powers, atoms, aliens, dimensions, fears and protections. It's only YOU and your intricate connection to all of "It".

It is the normal progression for the "child" to spiritually "grow up" and become a spiritual adult. Every life you have ever lived is the "childhood" that prepares us for the final "right of passage" where... "It did not seem strange for him to do the works of God".

So, just meditate on the question, "What is Spiritual Adulthood?" or, "How would I know if I am there?"  Then see what happens!

One Creative Moment

 "There is a moment in each day that Satan cannot find nor can his watch fiends find it; but the industrious find this moment and multiply it... And when it once is found, it renovates every moment of the day if rightly placed."
(William Blake)

Whenever we imagine things as they ought to be, rather than as they seem to be... that is
"The Moment" Blake is referring to and the moment that will be illuminated in this writing. For in that moment the spiritual man's work is done and all the great events of time start forth to mould a world in harmony with that moment's altered pattern. 

Satan, Blake writes, is a "reactor". He never acts, he only reacts. And if our attitude to the happenings of the day is  "reactionary", are we not playing Satan's part? Man is only "reacting" when in his natural or Satan state... he never acts or creates, he only reacts or re-creates. 

One real creative moment... one real feeling of the wish full-filled... is worth more than the whole natural life of your reaction to facts. In such a moment you could say, "God's work is done".Once more we may say with Blake:

"God only acts and Is, in existing beings or men."

There is an imaginal past and an imaginal future. When you are reacting, the past is re-created into the present. When you act out your dreams of fancy, with your Imagination, you bring the future into the present.

 "I feel NOW the future in the instant."  

The spiritual man acts: for him, anything that he wants to do, he can do and do immediately in his imagination, and his motto is always, "The Moment is Now".

Mental Diets...

 Dare You to Read This Every Night Before You Go to Bed and See What Happens!

Neville Goddard  1955


Talking to oneself is a habit everyone indulges in. We could no more stop talking to ourselves than we could stop eating and drinking. All that we can do is control the nature and the direction of our inner conversations. Most of us are totally unaware of the fact that our inner conversations are the causes of the circumstance of our life.

We are told that "as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he." But do we know that man's thinking
follows the tracks laid down in his own inner conversations? To turn the tracks to which he is tied in the direction in which he wants to go, he must put off his former conversation, which is called in the Bible the Old Man, and be renewed in the spirit of his mind. Speech is the image of mind; therefore, to change his mind, he must first change his speech. By 'speech' is meant those mental conversations we carry on with ourselves.

The world is a magic circle of infinite possible mental transformations. For there are an infinite number of possible mental conversations. 

When man discovers the creative power of inner talking, he will realize his function and his mission in life. Then he can act to a purpose. Without such knowledge, he acts unconsciously. Everything is a manifestation of the mental conversations which go on in us without our being aware of them. But as civilized beings, we must become aware of them and act with a purpose.

A man's mental conversations attracts his life. As long as there is no change in his inner talking, the personal history of the man remains the same. To attempt to change the world before we change our inner talking is to struggle against the very nature of things. Man can go round and round in the same circle of disappointments and misfortunes, not seeing them as caused by his own negative inner talking, but as caused by others... Read More:

What You Can Plan is Too Small for You to Live

Power Through Experience...

“a veritable San Andreas Fault in the American psyche: the personality’s wish to have power over experience, to control all events and consequences, and the soul’s wish to have power through experience, no matter what that may be.”

Whyte, David. The Heart Aroused: Poetry and the Preservation of the Soul in Corporate America. New York: Doubleday, 1994. 1-30.

"What would our days be like if we came out of hiding and brought our fears, loves, and dreams directly into the workplace?

In The Heart Aroused, poet David Whyte shows that the best way to respond to the current call for creativity in organizational life is to overcome our habitual fear and reticence and bring our full passionate, creative human souls, with all their urgencies and unnamed longings, right inside the office with us. When Whyte, who often consults for corporate clients, walks into an organization, it is not just to advise, strategize, and make recommendations. Instead, he clarifies our personal--not organizational--difficulties at work by placing them in the age-old context of poetry and story. To follow Whyte through his brilliant, soulful discussion is to raft the turbulent stream of conflicting currents that make up our lives in American organizations.

Whyte uses poetry to bring to life the experience of change itself. When he retells the story of Beowulf, he shows us how to face the nightmares that intrude into even the most organized workplace, nightmares we face in the demands, conversations, and relationships that make up our work life. He shows how to say what we mean and stand by it, even in the face of hostile authority--based on how poets William Blake, Rainer Maria Rilke, and T. S. Eliot lived their beliefs--in the simplest of words. He reveals how power must be built on vulnerability, how innocence cannot be sacrificed to experience, how creativity is the art of wedding simplicity and clarity with chaos.

Now available in paperback with an all new user's guide, The Heart Aroused shows how to use the language of prophecy, poetry, and enlightenment to give voice and strength to our most creative but most hidden desires.

Born in England, David Whyte is one of the few poets to have taken his perspectives on creativity into the field of organizational development, where he works with many American and international companies. He has published several audio collections and three books of poetry.


But what is soul, and what is meant by the preservation of the soul? By definition, soul evades the cage of definition. It is the indefinable essence of a person's spirit and being. It can never be touched and yet the merest hint of its absence causes immediate distress. In a work situation, its lack can be sensed intuitively, though a person may, at the same moment, be powerless to know what has caused the loss. It may be the transfer of a well-loved colleague to another department, a change of rooms to a less appealing office, or, more seriously, the inner intuitions of a path not taken. Though the Oxford English Dictionary's lofty attempt at soul is the principle of life in man or animals, depth-psychologist James Hillman describes it in far more eloquent terms in his provocative book of selected writings, A Blue Fire:

To understand soul we cannot turn to science for a description. Its meaning is best given by its context...words long associated with the soul amplify it further: mind, spirit, heart, life, warmth, humanness, personality, individuality, intentionality, essence, innermost purpose, emotion, quality, virtue, morality, sin, wisdom, death, God. A soul is said to be "troubled," "old," "disembodied," "immortal," "lost," "innocent," "inspired." Eyes are said to be "soulless" by showing no mercy. The soul has been imaged as...given by God and thus divine, as conscience, as a multiplicity and as a unity in diversity, as a harmony, as a fluid, as fire, as dynamic energy, and so on...the search for the soul leads always into the "depths."

The above quote is very revealing and explains a lot about the 'Why are we here?' question. It is easy to see the truth of this quote in all aspects of life, modern or ancient. This, again, outlines the prodigal purpose of life. Read our earlier post on 

The Prodigal Son 

Our personality/intellect/thinking-mind loves the idea of controlling everything but the overriding and overpowering desire of the soul always seems to get its way. We may think we want something but the soul wants the greater power, through experience, that may have nothing to do with what we think. Ever notice that in your life?

You are a Creative Idea. 
The "Father" had a Creative Idea and its expression is called, "the Son". The whole vast world is the "Son" bearing witness to the "Father".
