Being Forgiveness

BEING FORGIVENESS 

Resistance, wrongness & righteousness

What is forgiveness? What would it be like to live and be forgiveness?  In a nutshell forgiveness is the dissolution of charge.  It is resolution.  It is the allowing of what is to be as it is.  It’s the opening of one’s self, or one’s system, to that which it had previously withdrawn or removed itself from.  It is the end of insistence on your rightness and the washing away of your biases.  It is the return to non-separation.  It is instantaneous peace, freedom and bliss.

Forgiveness is the gateway into everything that we desire.  Forgiveness of self, other and all.  Ultimately to forgive, no matter what it seems like we are forgiving, is to come out of an erroneous perspective that we’ve been holding onto and into the truth.  That is why we always feel clearer and better after we forgive, because we are seeing from a perspective that is in greater alignment with the truth of what is.  The truth always feels better to us.  

Why do we not instantly move from suffering, charge or being stuck in a perspective into forgiveness?  Really we could at any moment choose this instantaneous transformation yet most of us don’t because we are too busy continuing our fight (internal or external) with what is.  Resistance is a tricky thing and hard for most of us to see in ourselves.  Sometimes we can feel the effects of our inner resistance as tension or pain in the body, but often we don’t make the connection that the stress, tension or pain we feel is part of our own inner resistance to something that is.  We attempt to address these effects that we feel in our body (i.e. tension or pain), but without going to the core and looking at what it is that we are in resistance to in the first place.  This is an endless chase that resolves nothing and provides only temporary relief.  

We also hate feeling wrong so we will fight to the end to prove, justify, and validate why something or someone else’s behavior, action or perspective is wrong and we are right.  When we go to the depths of wrongness it often brings a sense of inner shame and the pushing away of ourselves from ourselves.  It is the experience of self-resistance rather than self-love.  The proving or justifying that we do in order to not feel shame or self-rejection may be expressed subtly inside our own thoughts and mind and or it may be expressed more externally through the pushing away of certain people or things in our life.  The more righteous and insistent we are on our viewpoint the more we will suffer and the longer we delay the peace and freedom we desire.  The insistence of the rightness of our perspective and the wrongness of another’s is the prime reason why we don’t forgive. 

KNOW THYSELF 

Free will to forgive

When we live in a state of resistance or non-forgiveness we are withdrawing our love from certain aspects of creation.  There is no greater pain than to withdraw our love and put up energetic walls between self and other.  This is to live disconnected and experience separation, suffering, helplessness and powerlessness.  The only way to experience and know your power and live in connection is to be willing to put down your guards, dissolve your illusionary walls of self-protection and be rested open in a state of forgiveness of all.  True power comes from the heart and from not needing to push away any part of your experience.  When you can fully receive all of your experience you have won your internal battle and have mastered yourself.  This is what it is to be forgiveness.  

It is important to remember that you can choose this at any moment and in any experience.  Your free will to forgive can never be compromised by anyone other than yourself.  To choose and live moment to moment forgiveness opens up a portal of sorts in your beingness to infinite energy and intelligence.  You become agenda-less and therefore have access to the infinite wisdom and love that you are.  Your very essence serves you and all of creation.  

Some people may feel scared to put down their walls and drop their guards.  They may not yet know the power of love or be rested in the support that comes with it.  They may fear getting hurt, feeling pain, or being vulnerable or susceptible to attack- whether that attack is from others or self.  This is an indication of trying to control or manage life (rather than be present with and open to it) by attempting to push away or prevent certain feelings, sensations or experiences.  This is part of the inner resistance I was mentioning above and it can be tricky to see in ourselves because it is so engrained in the way that we operate.  In fact we often confuse our walls, guards and protection mechanisms as ourselves, as who we think we are, when really they are simply the aspects that interfere with or cloud our ability to truly see and know ourselves.  

Dismantling the resistance that we have built inside of our own selves opens us into love, which is our essence and true nature.  When we don’t yet know love we feel disconnected from our power because love is the ultimate power and the ultimate protector.  Inherent in love is everything we could ever want or need.  Love illuminates, invites, includes and is fiercely coherent in its capacity to organize everything into it.  Love leaves nothing out.  

Forgiveness is our be-line into ourselves.  It is the fastest way, the accelerated path, to knowing ourselves.  Know Thyself is one of, if not the prime tenet of all wisdom traditions.  Forgiveness is its key.  Use it if you so desire to move as quickly as possible into the light or your own consciousness.  God is none other than the clearest, most perfected perspective of yourself.  Clear the canvas of your mind and come to know yourself in what remains.

Love as a Technology

Love as a Technology 

What is technology?

Concept of human intelligence.When most of us think about technology we think about devices, typically electronic devices.  Whether those devices are the personal equipment we use such as our computers or cell phones, the advancement of software and information systems, electric cars and other transportation devices, or medical equipment.  From our current perspective, technology is seen as advancements that assist us in being potentially more connected, creating opportunities for greater ease and efficiency, and opening up our external world in ways that create novel avenues of experiencing life.  

There is much debate about whether this advancement of technology is good or bad for us, but undeniably we can all agree that the advancement of technology has radially changed our lives on this planet and there is no doubt that technology will continue to improve and advance.  Our technological advancement focus has largely been on the design and creation of inanimate objects rather than focusing on advancements of our own neurological systems and software.  It is almost as if we have collectively failed to see that these bodies and nervous systems that we have, are some of the most advanced “pieces of technology” that are currently on this planet.  It’s too obvious in some ways, in plain sight but overlooked, and the focus has been on the advancement of lifeless objects rather than animate ones.  In this way we have given more power to inanimate objects to advance our life experiences rather than recognize the power of the most intimate animate object that is currently in our existence, our physical body.  

What is it like to see your body as technology?  In spiritual circles we often talk about the body being a vehicle for the soul.  Whatever information that a vehicle (or technology) is wired to tune into it will express.  Said another way, the wiring determines what information and energy can be experienced.  This is as true for our physical vehicles as it is for our inanimate vehicles as well.  Inherent in the system of Network is the advancement of the neurological architecture and circuitry so that you can tune into a wider range of frequencies that allow you to access different information.  This is one of things that makes Network unique among many systems out there.  Its focus is and has always been on advancement of the neurological system.  This is the advancement of our biological technology if you will.   

What’s Love got to do with it? 

The most advanced technology

Blue heart fantasy nebula in spaceThe uniqueness of animate vs. inanimate objects is the capacity for sensorial, emotional, mental and soulful experiences and expressions, rather than just basic input and output of commands.  The capacity and range of these body vehicles that we each have is extraordinary.  Part of the spiritual journey is the development of pathways through this vehicle that allow us more and more access to our soul, which is that next level of development beyond the mind.  So many of us that are here right now have the wiring and/or are creating the wiring, which is allowing for soul energy and information to come through our physical vehicles more and more, which is key to the integration and evolution of our biological advancement to the next level.  

Just as sensations are the information of the body, feelings the information of the emotional body, thoughts the information of the mind, love is the information of the soul.  Many people are attempting to use their mind to understand love or to understand the information contained at the next level of our development, yet the mind is not wired for that function.  This often creates a sense of frustration or hopelessness for many on a spiritual path who keep trying to use their mind to understand love.  This is also why dismantling the idea of you as a separate mind or person has to occur to some level before you can directly experience your soul otherwise you will just keep run up against the edge of your perceived sense of self as a separate person-mind not being able to “see” beyond it.  The primary force, if you will, that dismantles this idea of separateness is love.  

Love heals.  In this way love is a technology in itself.  The most powerful one in my opinion.  Love heals because its knows its already whole and perfect state.  We all know love heals and we preach the power of love, yet we have a tendency to forget it particularly when other parts of our system get activated.  When this happens all of our energy diverts into those other aspects and the information that we receive becomes about survival sensations, intense emotions or habitual thoughts depending on where we get looped.  

The conscious generation of forgiveness of everything and acceptance of all blows the heart open.  When the heart is open your system gets saturated in love.  This love then works on your system.  It creates new pathways, patterns and access points.  You then begin to access and express different information.  The information of love is community, togetherness, interconnectedness, wisdom, grace, awe, pure light, unity, and one.  

Love is the most advanced technology currently available to us.  Some of us have more access to it than others, simply meaning the pathways are more grooved in our systems to express it through this body vehicle, yet love is free, unbound and available to all who have the hunger for it.  I invite you to remember and reconnect to love as often as possible and recognize that this technology is the number one key to the advancement of this entire human race.

Being a clear channel

Being a clear channel 

How you know what you know

36060498 - kundalini meditationWe are all channeling and thus transmitting something.  Whether that something is beliefs that society or our parents taught us, or values that our own beliefs have instilled in us, or our “higher self”, or intergalactic/interplanetary/inter-dimensional  information, its all channeled.  So what does channeling mean.  It essentially means that we are tapped into an information stream or source and we are transmitting, emitting or expressing that information through our physical vehicle (body) in some manner.  Information becomes energy or expression.  So whether that information comes from the beliefs in our minds, or from beyond our ordinary minds, is a matter of the resonance we have to connect with a particular stream of information (meaning how relevant it is for us) and also how clear of a channel we are for information to come through.  

What interferes or distorts the information that comes through?  In being on this planet and having this particular human form there are a multitude of filters that come along with having this experience.  These filters if you will, distort information and sometimes block information completely from our awareness for the sake of preserving the mission of you having this human experience.  As frustrating at it can be sometimes we need to not know certain information as it would interfere with the bigger picture of why we came here to have this experience in the first place.  These filters that are in place are made up of beliefs and the ways that you perceive reality to be.  There are both collectively agreed upon filters that allow our society to function with certain agreed upon laws and rules and there are also individual filters which are part of your own theme.

With all of that said there are ways to penetrate into deeper knowings and intelligence sources.  The clearer you are the more access you have to information beyond the what most people view as ordinary. Let’s explore what creates a clear channel and the basic components or substratum of all information.   

What creates a clear channel?

A vessel for love & wisdom

I have found that the most important components for being a clear channel are having as little attachment, agenda or polarity to any particular flavor of information and being able to still or quiet your thinking mind.  Simultaneous with this having a general disposition towards being of service to others accelerates or amplifies the levels which you can penetrate into in your awareness.  It is a combination of being receptive enough to tune and listen and also a willingness to share in support of others.

The substratum for all things in the universe is love.  Love is the fabric with which everything that is manifest comes into visible and invisible forms.  Intelligence or information is interwoven and inseparable from this fabric of love.  It informs and shapes the love into what it will express as.  This intelligence is infinite in its knowing and thus creates infinite expressions.  Thus if you distill everything down to its essential essence it is this intelligence/love combination.  So in essence everything you channel or express/transmit or that you are is this.  It then becomes matter of how many filters are between this original knowingness and where you are in your current level of awareness.  

An important question to ask yourself is what do you want to become a channel of?  What do you want be emitting or transmitting by your very presence on this earth?  What knowingness do you want to express?  Part of the distortion of having this human form is the forgetting of what we are and the illusion of separation.  Most of us intuitively know that there is more, but even that requires some level of being able to penetrate beyond the usual workings of our reality.  Asking yourself questions such as the above brings you into a more focused and deliberate direction.  Many people are  simply waiting for something to hit them and then they think they will “know”, but really it is a conscious decision to move in a particular direction and then intelligence/love organizes itself around our intention.  

Hand tuning fm radioLike a radio you are tuning to different streams of information available within the infinite field of reality and then transmitting the information contained in those streams.  Moving your dial between channels or streams requires the deliberate focusing of your attention.  If you’re not enjoying the particular channel that you are tuned into then refocus your attention by asking yourself different questions.  Quiet your mind, receive and transmit your new station.

Knowledge to wisdom

Knowledge to wisdom

Moving beyond concepts  

20745786 - illustration of a man who thinks about many thingsWe all know a million, billion things.  We know the right things to eat, the importance of exercise, the benefits of shifting our focus when in a rut, the value of presence and the ecstasy that love brings.  All of these things are pivotal aspects of our well-being.

The difficulty comes when we know these things yet don’t apply them in our lives.  We become seekers, seeking the next book, class, workshop, event, teacher, skill, relationship, or financial opportunity that will be the one that brings it all together.  Seeking is not bad or wrong, its actually great because it sparks inspiration and new perspectives, however the issue is when we keep what we’ve learned as a concept and use our seeking behavior as an escape to avoid the commitment needed to apply what we’ve learned to our life.

The only way that knowledge moves from being merely a mental concept is through using what you know.  Sometimes you may need to hear the same information a few different times in order to really begin to use it, but the issue is that people tend to get “disinterested” and instead of following through they move on to the next “magic bullet”.  These are the people that have an experience and say “I did “xyx” but it didn’t really help, everything (aka I’m) the same”.  They are expecting that the “thing” they did is what will change them, when instead it is they that will change themselves through their experience.

There are often underlying fears that may “distract” people.  Common ones are I’m not good enough, I can’t really change, I don’t know how, I’m not worthy, I’m not capable of getting it, Its too late, I’m too old, etc.  Fear, feeling anxious and worry are quite frankly stupid reasons to not apply what you know.  Politely acknowledge their existence and allow them to be there and also let them know who’s boss and who’s running the show, the show of your life.  A fear-led life is boring at best and unbearable at its worst.

Living wisdom

Commitment & courage

best choiceCommitment isn’t easy but it really isn’t that hard either.  You simply decide.  Decide what is important and what is not.  A good question to ask yourself is “what are you committed too?”  Do you know, or are you running on unconscious  scripts and actually have no clue?  You may think your committed to being love in your life, when actually your committed to everyone liking you.  You may think your committed to be in a loving relationship, when actually your committed to not rocking the boat and making sure the relationship is “secure” instead of loving.  You may think your committed to living your passionate career, but really you are committed to your safety and survival.  You may think your committed to healing, but instead are really looking for comfort and neutrality.  You may think your committed to a healthy life, when really your committed to avoiding feeling bad.

So check where you think you’re committed to your values, but where fear is actually running the show.  This can be subtle and takes some awareness to see.  One way to begin to notice it is that fear will always show up as avoidance, external safety (i.e. being approved by others, financial security), being “logical-reasonable”, focused on neutrality instead of new possibilities and concerned with what is lacking or could become lacking.

5614676 - beautiful female fighter with a sword in her hands.Living wisdom takes courage. You must ask yourself what is your core underlying intention and are you living it?  Are you meeting your standards for what you want and who you want to be?  If the answer is no then courage must come in.  Courage to choose differently even if its scary and you perceive potential loss; loss of security, relationship, or love.  Move forward despite your inner demons that keep you in fear rather than in your alignment.   In courage you will find yourself making choices differently, saying yes where you used to say no and no where you used to say yes.  This will force you to show up differently and you will begin to embody your knowing instead of just thinking about your knowing.
