WORDS ARE TRAPS – From my Universal Vision I found out that we are all soulmates. It is the same Self in our different bodies.The Image and Likeness of God that we are told we are made in is the same Self in all of us. This same Self has no specific gender. This same Self is the Holy Spirit. This is why it is said that we are part of God or we are God. This is the Universal Self in us. This is the Oversoul of Emerson. This is the SuperSelf of the Bhagavad Gita. Your ego is “the conditioned by the material world part of you.” Your ego is “over” the Holy Spirit in you so to speak. Divine Union is your ego recognizing the Holy Spirit in you and merging with the Holy Spirit in you. You recognize or sense or grasp the Holy Spirit in you within the process of divine alchemy. After this merger, which has a ground floor, you become One inside yourself with the Holy Spirit in charge. This is where you are naturally resolved to act with the Great Spirit in everything you do. As you improve, or as you decondition, the Holy Spirit(God) in you becomes clearer and clearer and stronger and stronger to you as You. Remember WORDS ARE TRAPS.
We are in the non-language zone here. We have transcended the intellect where we use words to reason and understand. We are getting into the zone where we realize “the peace that passes all understanding”. The intellect can be fooled. Intuition just knows. Intuition is of the higher mind where “I” recognize that the Holy Spirit is trying to “take me over”” or merge with my ego.
“I and my Father are one.” John 10:30. Jesus is our example for our egos to merge with the Holy Spirit inside us so we become One inside ourselves. When you become One inside yourself (whole), you are granted the soulsight that sees and knows the condition of separation between ego and Holy Spirit in others. When you become enlightened you realize that you are not separate from others. You realize that you are energy and that your energy affects others and the energy of others affects you. You become conscious of yourself among others. You come to recognize how the Oversoul recovery is coming along with others. You exist in the Universal Self. You exist in the SuperSelf.
My upcoming book is about achieving the “peace that passes all understanding.” When the clarity of our UniversalSuperSelf/Image and Likeness of God/ Holy Spirit becomes clear to you you become greatly relieved to finally see and know that we share the same Self. You recognize that this same Self is at different degrees of realization in each of us. Here is where you realize that everyone is your twin or soulmate. Life is about coming home to yourself which is ourselves. We slowly transfigure from ego to Holy Spirit or the same Self. But the realization can come on in a flash as it did with me in ecstasy and bliss. What remains forever is the relief that comes with the peace that passes all understanding because in the peaceyou realize what is going on with everyone. This is Self-Realization.
I was born in Wisconsin to a Roman Catholic family. My mother June was a talented writer and started her own service club. My father Joe was a Right-of-Way agent for Bell telephone. Joe was an avid golfer and overall sports enthusiast. Joe would play sports with me and I became a life-long athlete.
I was known as a rebel and was expelled from the Catholic school I attended at the age of fourteen. I was arrested at nineteen for being a thief and was placed on probation. Around this time, not being happy, I turned inward. I worked at different jobs that did not satisfy my budding inner life. I traveled down south several times reading books trying to find myself. In 1980, at the age of twenty-seven, I enrolled at a local college. I was now in an interesting environment. I was curious about almost everything and I eventually majored in speech and psychology or speaking and thinking.
Many people told me that I was funny. I was able to make them laugh about unusual subjects. In the summers of 1981 and 1982, while still a college student, I traveled to Minneapolis and pursued the art of stand-up comedy. During these summers I would write comedy, run twenty-five miles a week and perform comedy at night. I was also a juggler but did not juggle in my stand-up act. I took up Hatha yoga and studied nutrition. In Minneapolis, I interacted with the local up-and-coming comedians. Minneapolis at that time had a small close-knit comedy culture that produced a good number of comedians and some became quite famous. I was making audiences laugh shortly after I started. During this time I was also performing comedy in other cities. I planned on being a professional comedian.
Catholicism conditioned me to have a clear inner voice. I had to make people laugh and the only way I could see to do it was to be brutally honest with myself. I thought honesty would align me with common reality. The Sisters of St. Agnes, who taught me, always told me to tell the truth. So I was continually examining myself and weeding out delusional thinking. This became my way of life.
One day in 1983, I was alone at my parents house and all of a sudden I had a massive spontaneous kundalini awakening. The awakening of this spiritual energy made me realize my self. I achieved the ability, among others, to see through other peoples egos or read their hearts. I was forever changed. In 1983 there was no internet or otherwise easily accessible information for me to be able to find out what had happened to me. Because of the massive explosion of energy my nervous and digestive system had to rebuild.
Due to what happened to me, I changed my plans and soon moved in with my best friend and her son. We lived together for many years. I hid out in college going on and off for thirteen years. I read one book after another to understand what happened to me. I eventually received an M.A. in Speech/Rhetoric and also amassed many extra college credits. Currently I am an investor and forever a student.
I am repentant of the trouble I got into years ago and the embarrassment it brought to my parents. People that knew me when I was a kid remark that I sure changed my ways. I went through what I call psycho/spiritual/physical alchemy or I transformed myself by healing the past and living in the ongoing present.
