I am realizing that nothing is wasted energetically. This means everything is a building block of life, and whereas I thought it meant that life returns to a random pot of consciousness to be utilized again in different ways, that assumption was wrong. What I sense now from the recent insights is that the form we have is part of the blueprint of who we are. An oak tree is an oak tree is an oak tree. When it dies, it is reformed once again as an oak tree, and so with everything. We can do cross polenization and create hybrids, but in the scheme of the creator, you and I are designed and appear in a similar form from lifetime to lifetime. Hybrids are new creations, and will reproduce as they were created as well. There are always subtle changes, but the main element that is important in this case relates to the sanctity of the body.
We feel it is alright to abuse our bodies because they will die. Yet, if you talk to an individual who has had limbs cut off, you will be told that they still feel the phantom limb. It is there energetically regardless of its appearing to be gone. We were told that when Jesus resurrected he appeared after in the same form he had when he was alive, yet we chalk that up to him being God and therefore the implications not applying to us. Accounts of people who have seen loved ones who have died always involve seeing them in their physical bodies that they had while alive, usually appearing in what was their prime. This is not fantasy, it is a directive to us.
We are one body....the physical and the mental are wedded in spirit. This is not a house divided save through our illusion, and once we understand the truth of our wholeness individually, we become more aware of our unity to one another. The whole body cannot be separated save at the grossest level - the world of appearances. So if something is killed, it appears to be gone, but in truth it springs up again to live once again, and that is why when we try to kill evil, it will re-emerge, because it lived in ignorance and died in ignorance.
The only redemption for ALL of us to bring about a world at peace is to love ourselves and one another in totality. That which is most unlovable is that most in need of love, and the understanding that comes from our willingness to see life through an expanded lens assists in the process of reclamation. We yearn for soulful connections within and without, and it is we who have the power to claim that connection because it is all an inside job.
Rather than hardening our hearts and constricting the flow of life giving compassion and forgiveness, we reach within and open the flood gates of our hearts to love - to the infusion of light and grace from our inherited source and supply, and as we do, the flow of that love expands our entire being - body, mind, and soul. The spirit of Love flows through us and the vessels of our life's blood are heartened and free of constrictions that block the interchange of life giving ways and means that uplift and glorify this amazing creation we are.
This earth is a magnificent demonstration of love. The beauty of the natural world is unparalleled by anything else, and it inspires awe as we look to the spectacular images it projects. We are part of that beauty and splendor, but we have forgotten ourselves, and in so forgetting, we have plundered wantonly because of our disconnection to our inner resources. As we awaken - and this is the time of awakening in small and large ways - we ignite the light within that reunites us to Ourselves, and in so doing, reunites us with all of Life. This is our time, this is our place, and destiny calls on each of us now. We are WAKING UP!
