The Time Of The Season: Incinerating Belief Systems
If you know me even a little bit well, you'll know I'm not a fan of spiritual or consciousness trends. I'm not even a fan of social media, but in this world sometimes you have to hop on that reality for a ride.
The reason I'm not a fan is NOT because there's not any wisdom in the latest astrological event or energetic report or prophecy or prognostication.
It's because whatever tiny kernel of wisdom in it gets bent and shaped and molded by the brain. Further, the report gets spiraled through a collective consciousness of the spiritual, watering it down, and often reducing it to pure spiritual gibberish or makyo or even worse, a Facebook meme...
For you Crimson Circle folks out there, I'll remind you that Adamus did not make up the word makyo, which is akin to spiritual bullshit.
Makyo is actually a Zen term that means "ghost cave". It's a figurative reference to a kind of self-delusion that results from clinging to an experience and making a conceptual "nest" out of it for oneself.
More often than not that illusory nest many are so snuggled in IS the spiritual or consciousness community they find themselves in, which many have made part of their false identity.
A friend recently turned me onto a self-realized writer (of no group!), he wrote:
"Allegiance to any spiritual teaching or teacher - any outside authority - is the most treacherous beast in the jungle. The first thing we want to do in our journey is find the companionship and validity that comes with an established group, and in doing so we effectively end the journey before it begins." - Jed McKenna, Spiritual Enlightenment: The Damnedest Thing
Interacting with many on my Patreon page and the previous groups I have run - and in client work - which I have again opened to per requests - I see this a lot.
While the person has left the belief systems of yore, or of mass consciousness, such as... I have to work hard for money, or success is defined by my external projection... are swiftly replaced with new belief systems about spirituality, consciousness, and especially realization.
Just hop on a spiritual or consciousness group Facebook page for a minute and you'll see people hashing out and desperately defending their belief systems when it comes to realization or enlightenment. It's no different than defending religious dogma at its core. So silly!
Or even funnier to me, seeking consistent reinforcement of said spiritual beliefs - the reinforcement or defense response escalates in direct proportion to the higher consciousness of the perceived beliefs, for there is more at stake. People just aren't dabblers anymore. Realization is not a far off 'goal' to be achieved later.
Many of you have just taken the conscious step to allow the fire-breathing dragon (an expression of YOU) of forgiveness into your life. This is not a made-up thing; it's real ... and no, the dragon is not going to be your pet. Too funny!
Rather, it is in allowing the fire-breathing dragon into your life, that you come upon the gate-less Threshold of realization.
To walk through the gate-less gate, the dragon expression of Self breathes the fire of forgiveness and wisdom, incinerating any and all belief systems and perceived truths you may be still holding onto, including the notion that you have or can do anything 'wrong' (one of the deepest rooted false beLIEfs of humanity).
In the end, self-realization is a belief system-free state, in which everything is true and nothing is true. It's all just an experience or expression with a quick expiration date.
That's enough to send the human mind into total disarray; it likes lists and rules and order and black and white notions of right and wrong.
Yet, all the clarity really does come in the human-perceived chaos. This is why the "nest" is so desperately clung to. Fear of death. Fear of alone. Fear of the void.
Step into the ocean of SELF. The waves of SELF cradle you, returning you HOME, that is YOU.
In this incineration, every single identity whether it be filmmaker, red scarf-toting Shaumbra, yogi, spiritual teacher, Zen master.... what have you.... goes up in flames and you are left holding the ash.
Yet, what remains?
In all that death and destruction, when you feel you can go no further, when you find you have walked through the valley of death AND dove into to the depths of aloneness, you might, like me and others, start to hear something...
It may start off faint, barely audible.
You stretch your hearing to locate the notes.
First you hear but one note, then another, picking out parts and pieces until the full symphony blooms in your ears and reaches the depths of your heart, where your humanity and divinity merge as one.
But where is the music coming from?
Oh wait, it is coming from me. It is the song of my soul.
And in it you realize, all has been burned to ash but one thing. That is your soul's song. So beautiful, so unique, so yours.
And it becomes your point of expansional creation from henceforth.
And there is no henceforth, for you have been realized this whole time...more of that later, though.
I will point out and give credit to my dear friend Yogananda who coined the term Song of the Soul, with his beautiful book of poetry titled as such. Thank you!
If you are allowing the fire to bathe all that stands in your way in the Return to Self, I salute you as you fly out of the nest for the experience that is sacredly yours and yours alone.
With love, compassion, and reverence,
Lauren and Sar'h as One
Here's a shot of one of the many waves I caught on my most recent trip to Costa Rica.
Not pictured: The many sea turtles, who popped up on nearly every wave.
New Earth Reality!
HELPING YOU HELP YOURSELF
I have said I don’t do sessions anymore... To be honest, I really needed the last year to be with only myself, and allow my embodiment to deepen until I gained solid ground once more. Hell, just to go on a few surf trips too as pictured above.
However, the emails kept coming in from those who needed a quick check in and someone to touch down on the point in consciousness in which they stand in allowing realization to unfold.
In giving it ago this past week, I understood I am actually ready - for the first time this life - to take on that experience, rather than a role, I have avoided and resisted for so very long.
That experience is teacher or beacon for those choosing realization. It is in fact, in part, why I came back to do this again. Again.
It's nice I waited until I fully came into the formless, identity-free state of being, I now find myself in. I write, but it is not who I am. I sit as a beacon, but it is not who I am. This wasn't available to me before.
So, if you’re really truly finding yourself stuck in a loop - those belief systems sure do like to create a story, and that brain sure does like to repeat it until you are in the nut house - I’ve got quite the free time on my hands right now.
I just ask for a monetary exchange you deem appropriate for an hour on video chat - which has ranged anywhere from $100 to $250 USD... not super important except there must be an exchange - for everything I offer.
No one 'needs' this, yet should you find yourself in a loop and still there a week or more later of allowing, do reach out. I did when I found myself stuck in years past; and I'm glad I did. My buddy was just not in physical form. But I did have help, or sovereign support, when I was a dog chasing my own tail.
Everyone here is capable of unsticking themselves, though. Please know I know that. Yet, there’s no need to suffer in silence. You can email me at email@example.com to set up a time.
