Living in Oneness

The beauty of this process
 

 

Hello dear readers, my name is Alexis Shaffer and the beloved people of this newspaper have invited me to share my experiences with you. These are some experiences from the people to whom I have given Diksha.

I, Navy Captain Juan Jaime am writing this and I would like to share my personal experience during the sessions that  I was fortunate to participate in offered to the members of the 7th Navy Zone located on the Island of Mujeres Quintana Roo, Mexico on the 28th of April 2006.  This was a new experience for me as I was not previously aware of the activities that you offer. During the session, I mentally observed colors which corresponded to the heart, throat and brain chakras , and at the end of this session you said that if we had any specific illness or aches that  you could attend to us personally and mitigate or heal them with the transmission of energy. And you listened to my request when I indicated the areas where I felt pains in my spine and  left ankle. I felt a significant lessening of the pain when you removed  your hand from my back, as  I felt that you actually pulled out the pain and I felt the same sensation in my ankle. The next day the pain in my ankle had completely disappeared, which enabled me to walk normally. I experienced you healing my illnesses through the energy you provided, for which I thank you so much especially for the kindness  that you showed me.

I found the first course very interesting because it helped me to disconnect from my daily routine, as well as enabling my body to feel deeply rested and tranquil. With regard to what I saw during the exercise when I had my eyes closed, it was a series of images without forms, mainly blue and purple; and these images gave me a feeling of tranquility and relaxation, and at the same time the air entering my lungs helped me to separate myself from the problems of daily life allowing me to let myself flow more with what I feel in the present moment.

Diksha is a transfer of Divine energy which helps us to disidentify from conflict and  suffering, taking us to states of inner peace, joy, happiness and Oneness. Diksha starts a process of awakening the Divine Presence inside you, taking you towards Oneness, enabling you  to see the reality of what you are in every moment, healing your body, your relationships, and recognizing  the divinity in the experience of the present moment….

Awakening

Awakening is a shift in consciousness in which thinking and awareness separate. For most people it is not an event but a process they undergo. Even those rare beings who experience a sudden, dramatic, and seemingly irreversible awakening will still go through a process in which the new state of consciousness gradually flows into and transforms everything they do and so becomes integrated into their lives.  Instead of being lost in your thinking, when you are awake you recognize yourself as the awareness behind it. Thinking then ceases to be a self-serving autonomous activity that takes possession of you and runs your life. Awareness takes over from thinking. Instead of being in charge of your life, thinking becomes the servant of awareness. Awareness is conscious connection with universal intelligence. Another word for it is Presence: consciousness with thought.

The initiation of the awakening process is an act of grace. You cannot make it happen nor can you prepare yourself for it or accumulate credits toward it. There isn’t a tidy sequence of logical steps that leads toward it, although the mind would love that. You don’t have to become worthy first. It may come to the sinner before it comes to the saint, but not necessarily. That’s why Jesus associated with all kinds of people, not just the respectable ones. There is nothing you can do about awakening. Whatever you do will be the ego trying to add awakening or enlightenment to itself as its most prized possession and thereby making itself more important and bigger. Instead of awakening, you add the concept of awakening to your mind, or the mental image of what an awakened or enlightened person is like, and then try to live up to that image. Living up to an image that you have of yourself or that other people have of you is inauthentic living—another unconscious role the ego plays.

So if there is nothing you can do about awakening, if it has either already happened or not yet happened, how can it be the primary purpose of your life? Does not purpose imply that you can do something about it?  Only the first awakening, the first glimpse of consciousness without thought, happens by grace, without any doing on your part. If you find these words incomprehensible or meaningless, it has not yet happened to you. If something within you responds to it, however, if you somehow recognize the truth in it, it means the process of awakening has begun. Once it has done so, it cannot be reversed, although it can be delayed by the ego. For some people, the reading of these words will initiate the awakening process. For others, the function of these words is to help them recognize that they have already begun to awaken and to intensify and accelerate the process. Another function of the is to help people recognize the ego within them whenever it tries to regain control and obscure the arising awareness. For some, the awakening happens as they suddenly become aware of the kinds of thoughts they habitually think, especially persistent negative thoughts that they may have been identified with all of their lives. Suddenly there is an awareness that is aware of thought but is not part of it.

What is the relationship between Awareness / Presence and Thought?

Awareness is this space in which thoughts exist when the space has become conscious of itself.  And you know it firsthand. It is no longer just a concept in you mind. You can then make a conscious choice to be present rather than to indulge in useless thinking. You can invite Presence into your life, that is to say, make space. With the grace of awakening comes responsibility. You can either try to go on as if nothing has happened, or you can see its significance and recognize the arising of awareness as the most important thing that can happen to you. Opening yourself to the emerging consciousness and bringing its light into this world then becomes the primary purpose of your life.

“I want to know the mind of God,” Einstein said. “The rest are details”. What is the mind of God? Consciousness. What does it mean to know the mind of God? To be aware. What are the details? Your outer purpose, and whatever happens outwardly.

So while you are perhaps still waiting for something significant to happen in your life, you may not realize that the most significant thing that can happen to a human being has already happened within you: the beginning of the separation process of thinking and awareness.  The separation between thinking and awareness, which is the center of internal purpose, happens when we negate psychological time, which is the mind’s habit of looking for life’s fulfillment in the future where there is no possibility of finding it and at the same time ignoring the only door with access to it: the present moment.

Symptoms of Inner Peace

Be on the lookout for symptoms of inner peace!  The hearts of a great many have already been exposed to inner peace, and it is possible that people everywhere could come down with it in epidemic proportions.  This could pose a serious threat to what has been, up to now, a fairly stable condition of conflict in the world!!

Some signs and symptoms of Inner Peace:

  • A tendency to think and act spontaneously rather than on fears based on past experiences.
  • An unmistakable ability to enjoy each moment
  • A loss of interest in judging other people and in interpreting their actions
  • A loss of interest in conflict
  • A loss of the ability to worry (Very Serious Symptom)
  • Frequent overwhelming episodes of appreciation
  • Feeling of connectedness with others and nature
  • Frequent attacks of smiling (Also Very Serious)
  • An increasing tendency to let things happen, rather than to make them happen
  • An increased susceptibility to the love extended by others, and the uncontrollable urge to extend it.
