"If it is only a dream, why is pain so real?" "A dream head struck against a dream wall causes dream pain. A dreamer is not cognizant of the hallucinatory fabric of a dream until he awakens. Similarly, man does not understand the delusory nature of the cosmic dream of creation until he awakens in God." Paramahansa Yogananda

We are God experiencing God

I have been working on a brochure to advertise my spiritual work. Part of what I wrote pertained to a conversation I was having this morning so I read it to my friend. She loved it so much she wanted a copy, so I decided to post it today.

'Each one of us, individually, is here as a wondrous manifestation of the Divine. The Divine is experiencing completely diverse experiences that can only happen through each one of us as individual, unique special beings. We are Universes unto ourselves. Everyone of these Universes is essential. We are God experiencing God and this is our one and only job.

Our deepest desires are our Higher/Divine Self instructing us. It is my intent to help others get in touch with these desires, assist in clearing the way for the desires to be allowed manifestation and share the tools for manifestation.

The desire for healing the self is not simply self serving motivation. There is a field of Energy, of Intelligence that connects all of us, people, animals, minerals, plants the earth,and the cosmos. What we heal and free we do for All. The healing ripples into the field and effects the Entirety.

Learn how to best love you, and that love spreads to All. It is quite simple. There is no better way to help, anyone, anything, anywhere.'

Having only recently come around to this concept, I find it absolutely thrilling, and it helps me look at both myself and others with far more compassion.

There's a funny story in a Ram Das book I just finished reading in which a woman rolls down her window, goes to yell at another driver and stammers, "You...you...weird manifestation of God you!"

Whenever I get impatient with someone that story comes to mind.

I don't know how you do it, Katherine, but you so often paint or write about what I am experiencing. I am currently working on a painting called "Wishbone." It's about the Divine self, healing, and the energy that connects us to all living beings. I have never been more certain of our vibrations.

Katherine said...

M. heart Ram Dass has such great, funny, enlightened stories. Thank you for this one.

Katherine said...

Kathy I love that you feel this way. I have no doubt. It's in the name. Kathy was my birth name. Kathy Anne Dulin. I changed it to Katherine in '94.

I've already sent the last paragraph to a friend in need.
(A quote by Katherine Treffinger:-)

It so true .... we are almost embarrassed to love ourselves and yet when we are feeling loved and nurtured we are the best we can be.

Katherine said...

Thank you Robyn, it's nice to know that such a simple thought can be a help. It's amazing how many people think that loving themselves is not a priority. Where does it come from if not from within? What happens if it isn't there, the love I mean?

ArtPropelled said...

Hmmm ... thinking about that. If the love isn't within .... I suppose that is what is happening here in South Africa. There are so many murders every day and in court the criminal shows no remorse whatsoever. Those people have no love within.

Katherine said...

Robyn there is a metaphysical adage that speaks of judgement as one finger pointing as three are pointing back at the one who is pointing. If someone is murdering, their own anger and hate toward themselves is so large that they act it out. Then there are the people in the courts judging. What a position to have, and why? I am not talking logic here. I am speaking internally manifesting out. It feels so complex there in South Africa but I think it all boils down to the same thing, the interior mirrored in the exterior.
Doesn't mean we are not to have compassion, quite the opposite. Whether it is hate or self hate, hate is a red hot cinder in the hands of the one who feels it.
I do go on, I just feel so dearly for the situation the people of your country are in.
