BOOK ONE - TRUTH IS UNFOLDING
This is a text for the upcoming ONE SELF TEACHINGS compendium that is due for release in 2019. This particular text is taken from BOOK ONE - I AM YOU. YOU ARE GOD which is a minor update to Story's book 'You Are God. Get Over It!' - UPCOMING BOOK DETAILS.
We all have an inner feeling of truth. Some ideas instantly excite us; they ring true and we feel drawn to believe them. This inner feeling of truth can at first seem to be a confirmation of the existence of absolute truth. But if absolute truth is an illusion, then what is this feeling? It is the truth of your heart, and is felt as your beingness resonating with what you are experiencing. It is the experience of resonance.
The discovery of something that resonates as being true for you is a beautiful experience. To be in the unfolding is to continually draw to you experiences that you resonate with. To follow your joy, to follow your excitement, is to follow the resonance of your heart. Your heart always leads you towards what it resonates with, because resonance is an expression of love. Your heart is continually leading you towards the realization of love - the realization of your wholeness.
If truth is not absolute then what is it? Truth is a statement of love in the Now. To say that an experience resonates is to say that there is something about it that you love. It is to say that there is something in the love that you are (your Godself) that is in accord with the experience. To experience resonance is to feel an aspect of yourself clearly. It is to unfold more of the realization of the love that you are into your conscious awareness. Resonance is the experience of your unfolding. If you wish to call anything truth, then call yourself truth. You are truth. You are love. Truth is that which reveals to you the love that you are.
Resonance is the feeling of your being unfolding ever further into love and freedom. To resonate with an idea is to step out of a cage of definition and enter a more expansive reality. It is to heal a wound. The experience of truth is the experience of your own healing through your allowance of feeling. This is a validation of the love in your heart - that which you are. To feel resonance is to feel your freedom birthing through the allowance of your being. This feeling of healing is the feeling of awakening. A wall has come down. Your foot has lifted up off the brake. A struggle has been released. A pain let go of. It feels as if everything has become more vivid, and yet seems the same. You have stepped further into the realization of All That You Are.
The motion of the unfolding is to lead us towards our own healing. We have come to call this feeling of healing, truth. Just as we came to believe in the world as being objective, external, and absolute; just as we came to personify God; we likewise applied objectification onto the feeling of resonance. We turned our freedom of belief into the idea of absolute truth - ‘the Truth’. In our competition with each other we came to say that our feeling of resonance was more powerful than anyone else’s - “My truth is the Truth.” Truth became a currency of worth, and through objectifying it we became attached to the idea of absolute truth. We came to worship truth, in much the same way as many worship money. In doing so, we denied our inner power of beingness and externalized our worth into something to be served as a master - we separated from our sovereignty.
When truth is seen to be the experience of our own healing, then it becomes clear why it is such a beautiful feeling. It also becomes clear how it is an ever changing feeling, rather than absolute. The resonance that we experience when we heal a wound changes when we move to heal different aspects of our being. This is felt as your personal experience of truth changing. What excites you changes. You become drawn to different types of experience. This natural motion of change is impeded by a belief in absolute truth. If you come to identify the experience of your healing (the feeling of resonance) as the discovery of an absolute truth, then you come to carry that belief forward as a static part of your story. This is to become attached to a truth, rather than experiencing its freedom and letting it go.
Many come to form groups based around truths that they are attached to. This shared identity can bring about its own form of healing, but at the same time it tends to compound the rigidity of the truths that are shared within the group. In past lives, to enter such a group for an entire life was common. However, at the current rate of awakening, where the perception of truth is changing faster than ever, these groups can become more a hindrance than an aid. Only groups that embrace the changing of their own truth are likely to remain through this period of acceleration. That which is static can only last a short while in the birthing fluidity of our reality.
The idea of absolute truth is the objectification of our own healing. To believe that you have discovered an absolute truth is to believe you have come to an end truth. There is no ending in the infinite. There is no ending to the beauty of the unfolding. There is no need for a final destination when the journey is love. To let go of absolute truth is to free yourself to come to new discoveries of resonance - further unification with your Godself. Initially this can be difficult if you have identified your worth with how knowledgeable you are of ‘the Truth’. In the release of absolute truth the feeling of resonance is not diminished; it is freed. You are not a truth seeker on a quest to reveal the nature of reality, you are here to create the nature of your reality through your realization of your personal truth - the love that you are.
To seek truth is to seek your own healing. It is to seek the realization of the limitless freedom of your being. The motion of the unfolding unceasingly carries you towards this realization of wholeness - the reintegration of all that you have become separate from within the illusion of your story. The truth that you seek is you. The God that you seek to know is you. All that resonates does so because it contains an aspect of the realization of the freedom that you are. All that you are drawn towards is you. Within the illusion we have become fragmented, and all those pieces are constantly calling to each other to unify - become whole again. This calling is the motion of the unfolding. This calling is one of love.
The unfolding is you calling to yourself to be All That You Are - to be free; to be love; to be limitless. The unfolding is not some mysterious force or divine plan. It is the calling of your Godself to you. It calls for you to be unified. Your Godself is the experience of being whole - of being unified with All That Is. This idea of fragmentation does not mean that you are broken in any way. The fragmentation is the definition of your story that you chose to experience in this lifetime. In coming here we each dived into definition. We are not called to return to our unified Godself because we are in any form of trouble. The call is simply the call of love. It is not telling us that we must return. It is not telling us we must come back to unity. It is not telling us anything except that we are love. We feel so drawn to it because in its tones, the feelings it births in our heart, is our realization of love.
All that draws you forward, no matter what face it presents, is your love. All that you call spiritual, all that you call divine, is the love that you are, calling to you. That love is the unfolding. That love is your reality. That love is your experience. That love creates everything. All that you see that you cannot believe was created with love reflects a way in which you are caught in the illusion that you are not love. Allow yourself to see the love that you are, and you will see that all reality is made with love.
