BOOK TWO - YOUR DREAM STARTS HERE
This is a draft text for the upcoming ONE SELF TEACHINGS compendium that is due for release in 2019. This particular text is taken from BOOK TWO - THE MATTER OF CONSCIOUSNESS which is a heavily updated and expanded version of Story's 2004 book 'The Messiah Seed' - UPCOMING BOOK DETAILS.
Your dream is unfolding from within you. It is a powerful, almost tangible, sensation that is felt through the heart. Or, if you have not yet ventured through the doorway of feeling from your heart, it is experienced as the physical unfolding of your life in the mirror of reality before you – a reality you are creating through your choices.
Let go of any person or belief that tells you that your dream is not for today. There are no obstacles except that which you create through any beliefs you may hold around the inevitability of struggle. It is time to know that all that appears to separate you from your dream is but aa perceptual-illusion that you can release. The face of that illusion is the many names of fear. Face and transform your fears to be free.
This reality is a mirror that reflects your energy back to you, cloaked in the delicious sensations of time and space. Physical matter is not a cage; it is an expression that births from the non-physical – from your spirit. Release your wounds and you will experience your Self in ever clearer ways. We are much more than the physically incarnate aspect of our being. In human-form we are but one face of an eternal-spirit choosing to experience another mortal human-life. Know this wider experience of your spirit to release your fears. All that you seek is already within you. It is time to remember that you are whole.
The face of your dream is, at the deepest level, the manifestation of the experience of seeing and knowing yourself clearly. To see this is to see your dream and yourself to be one. Being yourself without restriction is the living of your dream. To know your spirit is to know thyself and that is to awaken into the freedom of your consciousness.
Awakening is the realization of the infinite-nature of your spirit whilst within your current state of embodiment. It is to consciously bridge the physical and non-physical and know of the wider nature of reality. To do this is to ground the freedom of your spirit into your human experience. This is Freedom Consciousness and it is the realization of All That You Are.
A reality of joyous freedom is but a realization away.
This is the life. The time is now.
Your dream starts here.
I choose to start living my dream today.
DEFINITIONS & CLARIFICATIONS
The spiritual path is the path of becoming as familiar with your non-physical-self as well as your physical-self; this is experienced as your consciousness which, along with its capacity to think and reason, is also the place of feeling and imagination. Beyond this it is also where you, whether you choose to consciously recognize it or not, hold a level of awareness of your connection with your spirit. Your spirit is the non-physical level of consciousness from which you chose to enter into the human-experience of individuality. Your spirit is in a state of unrestricted freedom which allows it to create from the unlimited possibility of whatever it can imagine. We also call it the infinite-Self.
Despite the teachings of religion, the purpose of human existence is not to awaken to our spirit and ascend to the non-physical state. We, from the freedom inherent in the wider-reality of spirit, created the mortal-experience because that is precisely what we wanted to experience; we did not create it in order to imprison ourselves within it in order to escape (and we did not make any mistake in creating it). Any person who lives a joy-based life that flows from their heart, no matter what they are doing, no matter what their spiritual beliefs are, is doing exactly what they came here to do (even if they die with zero belief in life after death and a dislike of every organized religion).
What this means is that you are under no obligation or pressure to recognize your spiritual nature in any predefined way. Learning to live from the feeling in your heart, rather than the fear within your mind, is living the spiritual path and it does not require that you call it that or dress it up in spiritual sounding words. This is because you are not here to ‘awaken to spirit’; you are here to live your spirit’s dream. And that is about joy, not God; it is about love, not sacrifice; it is about feeling, not thinking. The reason to know this is because the dream in your heart will never be met through the idea that you should be spiritual, it can only be met through the realization that you intended to be and are deserving of, the feeling of joy – that which exists within the potential of your heart to be met in each and every moment. Don’t believe in this book because you want to be more spiritual; believe in whatever parts of it best aid you in living your joy.
