★★Happiness meeting: Communicating with and into the unknown

Welcome ALL, into this weeks happiness meeting.

We are all invited to join in as we take a step into an unchartered path.  A path that has yet to be touched, yet to be identified. It is the path that we have no idea even exists.  

It is a complete unknown.  It is a mystery, because it is not part of our external awareness. And yet it is close, and it is intensely alive, as you will see, when touched upon, you will have instant impression.

Soul perceptions.

The topic of our last Happiness meeting was "Being transformed by Love", and I am wanting to build upon that meeting.  Please feel free to look back at that Happiness meeting, because there is a connection b/t being transformed by love, and taking the next step.  

There are an infinite ways to take your next step!! You are all welcome to look with in, and welcome that next bead, and follow your flow!

 If you have truly been transformed by LOVE, then without a doubt, you have knowledge that produces effects that translate from self awareness into the world of causes.

WHY, oh, why am I writing this?! Good question! This is definitely not an easy subject, and many people may not be interested in this inquiry. However, we are all facing many unknown's! We do it every day! We make decisions and we have our values, and all of this is from the world that is already known.  

I believe that this inquiry is greater than being limited by "WHAT we know vs. what we do not know."  What I am trying to point towards, is that we are more; we are greater than the sum of our experience and the sum of our thoughts. 

Much of what I am distinguishing is that I desire to communicate -- with my unknown... I am aligning and connecting with my true nature and developing my will.  I am very interested in gaining information about soul and Higher purpose, about service, and in all of the connections along my path. I am also interested in how we function on all planes: physical plane, mental plane and spiritual plane. 

I am interested in understanding more clearly my three fold nature. I am also interested in understanding energy, spiritually. I am also interested in how some people have tapped into healing.  I am also interested in understanding nature of others with whom we have significant relationships with. I would love to understand how these significant relationships occur.  

Do you ever wonder how or why certain people or certain events happen? Do you believe this is all just random?  Or, is this meant to be?  

I am also interested in continuing along the path of being transformed by LOVE.  And, this Happiness meeting is my next step along that path of transformation.

 

 

The intention for growth of consciousness:

  1.  Meditation: The physical brain becomes quiet and still.  Here, you will wrestle intense internal activity of the mind.  The mind does not want to be still, or submit to you having self awareness beyond your mind and beyond your thinking. You learn this by achieving one pointed concentration. One thought at a time. Through concentration, you are able to build up your will. This alone is a totally new experience!  Subjugating the mind, literally means to make the mind subordinate. And what is it subordinate to?  It will be subordinate to your will.  
  2. Emancipation. Setting aside limitations and releasing burdens. When your burdens have been lifted, you will not want them back! You are shedding one identity. Your consciousness is not the same as your rational mind. Your rational mind will ask questions, and  your intuition will usually answer with a vision. It is this process, where the rational mind brings questions and the intuition provides a solution. 
  3. Balance b/t the more subdued rational mind and the intuition. New experiences bring new understanding. The pineal gland is located in the back cerebral portion of the third ventricle of the brain. To many, it is said to be the home of the soul, an out post of the life of God.  It is also said to be the lowest point, where pure spiritual life from our Creator contacts or reaches. Through concentration on the light in the head, knowledge of the spiritual worlds and those of pure spirits who work and walk in them is achieved.  It is through the development of the head and the use of the head center, the will is brought into functioning activity. 

I know that this is not an easy to read thread!  And, still, this unchartered path is unfolding!!

Please, stick with me!

Here's a little more, that I am hoping will be something of value!!

Experience (of the pairs of opposites) comes from the inability of the soul to distinguish b/t the personal self and the purusa.  The objective forms exist for the use and the experience of the spiritual man. By meditation upon this, arises the intuitive perception of the spiritual nature.

Purusa is defined as a complex concept, such as a cosmic man, or consciousness.

Quote from "The Light of the Soul", page 320. A. Bailey

 

 

Recommended inquiry:

This is a spiritual thread.  I can offer you questions for inquiry and reflection, however this is only speaking to your rational mind.  This thread is meant to nurture your spiritual nature...!  

Right now, my Spirit needs nurturing!

I am inviting you to balance your rational mind with your spiritual mind. There is room for both! It takes time, patience, intention and focus. 

I request that you work on any part of this meeting that speaks to you.

I know that I am working from where I am, and I am committed to being transformed by love.

This meeting is now open!

thank you for taking the time to contribute this Happiness meeting.

I can only know because of my intention to grow through things and not just go through daily life... there will be much personal exploration -adding to the discoveries I will appreciate.

The applications of gratitude and blessing are virtually unlimited, can be used by anyone, require no waiting periods or large capital investments, transcend ideological differences, and are wonderfully contagious.

In response to AlwaysWonderfulPossibilities's post: Thank you, and yes, we are here to explore our unknown!

 

 

1st thought on topic of unknown:

I believe 1 way (of many) 'the unknown'  has begun creating its own clarity is my desire to not label or judge all that comes into my experience after the way has been 'paved' 5-19-17 9:13AM EST

note to self- 'paving' (expound later)

I can say...'my brain' has been traveling a new path, and the driver of this is definitely Greater than my my primitive human place...

 bdcdbb547bdded31ba3149248e772984.jpg

 

  • I would say Love (as I understand it/feel it/know it in this present moment).... has evolved with much more  faith/trust .
  • I'd say that has what has been happening for me... progressively... thanks to desire, willingness, and inspiration (which  comes from something Greater) ... that I (always) find where I (truly) seek & allow.... is simply Awesome; a word overused ....though best description for:'letting go',  'being'  and lovely  co-creative experiences ... with less and less effort.
  • It is a process... that I Am trusting ... My 'old self'  from a younger time would logically deduce ... (from my rational mind), that fear is good...Those infamous wake-up calls...  would create imaginative... run-on solutions lol. In earlier days,  I would've said  fearful analyzing  was simply caring. . And who knows...maybe there is a thin line between love and fear. b91bfe0b01c6bcc23d10f6b687c146f3.jpg
  • Though much has been transformed, and as you Kathi so appropriately titled the last mtg-transformed by love...
  • You couldn't have told me in my early yrs...
  • ~~~~*early yrs...-all is relative - though mine go back a ways(:
  • Anyway my point I was about to make... as I grow... love is always being transformed... 2cc938bce6a01ce4327b3a479da4c05f.jpg

 

In response to all of your posts above: And that is part of what is coming up for me to share (utilizing 'today' , the last mtg which added to my today and the ideas : The intention for growth of consciousness    you listed above :   Meditation, Emancipation, Balance  

to be continued....

In response to Kathi's post:

  1. Meditation---I don't pretend to know anything about meditation but I can make my mind go completely blank within seconds. Ok maybe minutes. I also seem to have no trouble focusing my concentration on one particular thing for long periods of time. I can seemingly shut out the world around me and not see or hear things around me. It's like I'm in a trance or self hypnotized. Others can snap me out of it by calling my name several times or touching me. I know it sounds weird, but it is part of my unknown. I have been doing brain entrainment for years and I continue to use it to relax, go into delta to sleep, help relieve sinus congestion and allergy relief, as well as pain management. 
  2. Emancipation: I think I do this all the time. It fascinates me and is very satisfying. I will ask myself how to solve a problem. It usually has to do with solving a mechanical problem or coming up with a way to create a solution to do or fix something but it works just as well with remedying social situations or conflicts. Often I will ask one of my parents who have passed to help me with something and I get my answers in dreams. To me this is another complete unknown. 
  3. Balance between the rational mind and intuition? Well, I try to be rational or at least sensible but I do depend and trust my intuition a lot.

In response to Poppy's post: the clarity of your responses have assisted my own, thank you for joining in for you...and for many I'm sure... You have triggered ideas for my own clarity. 

I can further tell that I will receive a lot from this mtg!

 Poppy's post: I hope you don't mind Poppy, I came across a poem of yours (on an Allowing/Accepting-Happiness Meeting... )which works for w/me for this thread:

 

Who Are You And What Do You Want? Or What Time Is It?

Time moves forward
Second by second
It’s time you have

Time past is unchangeable
Future time does not exist
Breath by breath
Heart beat by heart beat
Is the present

I am me
You are you
The same and ever changing, us

Accepting what is
Allowing Source
To fill uncertainty
Of being

Liberating authentic self
Instantly here

And gone
And here again
And gone
And here…

In response to AlwaysWonderfulPossibilities's post:Hmmm---I wrote that?  Sounds vaguely familiar or at least, it resonates with me. Thanks!

In response to Poppy's post: Thanks Poppy for joining the meeting!  Always love your sharing!

I have never heard of brain "entrainment", but it sounds like a powerful technique that one could use to learn the path of stilling the mind.  I will google on this, and check it out.

Unlike you Poppy, I hardly arrive at a state of stillness quickly... Maybe as I do this more and more, it will become natural.  The first thing that I go to, is the light in my head. That part is instant, less than a nano second. 

Chitta, mind stuff  is a barrier for me. My mind is never silent!! Right now, I am using this as a lever.  I am separating from the endless rational mind that refuses stillness.  I am just directing my focus behind and away from and pulling awareness away from the chitta. This is just a start....  there is "East" to go from here!

GREAT BIG HUG, POPPY!!!

YOU BRING GREAT JOY!!!

In response to Kathi's post: I think I know why my mind doesn't chatter. One has to have a mind for it to chatter or my mind is like a TV. A TV that is turned off. I am just not getting a signal. Luckily, if I have to, I can turn it on occasionally. 

Words are like seeds. When you write them out, they grow into your dreams and spark the imagination of others.

New thought just occurred to me... that its my greatest desire to continue "being transformed by LOVE", --and that IS me speaking into my unknown! 

It just feels like finding a puzzle piece, and feeling it as it is a perfect fit, perfect find... and feeling it connect to my physical body, and with it, a welcomed wave of ease and a deep sigh that followed.

 I was off today, and I am so grateful for all that IS right with my life. Today, I took time to take stock in this Happiness meeting... and also, I took stock in where I am, what are my thoughts like, what am I attracting, what am I manifesting, where is my valley, and where is my mountain...

This is also me speaking and communication with my unknown.

And, I DO need and WANT spiritual nurturing. I AM spiritually hungry. The time is right for me to ask myself about this hunger.

What do I really want?  Love.  The answer is Love!

In response to Kathi's post: Yes Kathi, the answer is always love. Continue developing a deep everlasting love and forgiveness for self and your heart light will shine brightly and infect everyone you meet and that spiritual love in your heart will spill over in all your endeavors. 

 

I wrote this this poem recently and it suddenly came back to me. I can't remember if I published it or not, but it must be part of my response to this meeting. 

"Unknown" 

Tightly closed eyes
View the world
In vivid light

A silent tongue
Sings loudly
To pricked ears

Deep within
Your heart
Whispers

A still mind
Plays a recurrent
Video

Can you see it?
Can you hear it?
Do you want to?

It is you
Best heed
It's message.

LOVE

"Into the Unknown" 

 

Reaching out
Unknown
Thoughts and desires

Daunting
Personal growth
Challenging, rewarding

Soulful journey
Surely

The unknown
Always love

Heartfelt
Limitless
Love

Throw it
Windward
Without thought.

In response to Poppy's post: Love this new poem too! So perfect! These past few weeks have  been an incredible ride full of uncertainty, hope, and excitement. We've undergone some life changes we are believing that is leading to the life we've been paving the way for. 

If I was to share specifics, it could seem like an oh-no! Though it has somehow just fit... for the place of discovery and things we've wanted to "figure out" for awhile. 

We are believing this is the best time of our lives (one moment at a time).

In response to AlwaysWonderfulPossibilities's post:

"I acknowledge Love as the fundamental energy of life." This affirmation has helped me in times of uncertainty. When we undergo life changes, and we all do, it is natural to want to hang onto the familiar, but if we can toss out our heartfelt limitless love into the wind, it will catch something even better than we can imagine and return it to us.

In response to Poppy's post: Poppy, your words are so soothing...

and I love your affirmation!!

Yesterday, while driving home, I had a huge insight... 

I saw just a tiny glimpse of something that is so important.  It's about ownership and taking full and total responsibility for all aspects of my life. 

I saw a tiny glimpse of how I have not yet done this...  I truly see how this blind spot, which I was fully unaware of, kept my moving from moving forward in every aspect of my life...

just a glimpse, and I was able to see with total clarity, how and why I am who and where I am!!

"Being cause" in all areas of my life, with siblings, with my daughter, with my x, and, more importantly, with my self...

I can see, that this is the contribution of doing authenticity work in all areas of my life. 

I just took ownership, and now I can work with peace and freedom, and feel the vitality of my Being...

 

I Am cause in the creation of and the matter of my JOY!

I deeply love and accept myself for ALL that I am!

 

Hi my friend, My heart smiles when you share your journey. Thank you. You are beautiful!

This quote reminded me of your beautiful place you are in.

In response to AlwaysWonderfulPossibilities's post: Thank you, thank you, thank you!!  Giggling!  You are a glorious source of Love and Light, that shares my sacred path!

And, yes, yes, yes to that quote, above... and the word that most hits the bullseye: belonging.

Powerful stuff, BELONGING.

And, the same with exploring the darkness/the unknown.

 

 

 

"Kathi's Poem"

Deeply dive
Heart zone

Enter darkness
Without expectation

Open minded
Exploratory mission

Looking into
Your mirror image

Who are you?

If you find
You look like you
Look deeper

Ask your heart
To recall
All goodness you

Mind link
Heart findings

In the mirror
Look again

All you'll see
Your heart
Bleeding love

That's who
You are
