We have never been separated from the Most High, we have always been the Supreme, but because of our tendency to identify with the information we get, and the habits that we collect from the environment and circumstances, we have an individual, an identity which thinks itself separated from the whole. So after we are enlightened through our own efforts, or through a spiritual friend, we will see things differently. Then even though we still have an individual shell, we know that we are not that.
Now, if we want to see this light again, we must go up ourselves, or someone else will have to bring us up if we run out of oxygen, or iffy are caught in some rock. So we must go through all the obstacles. Whatever you came down through, you must go up through. We will then be able to take off our equipment and regain our original beauty. We thus came from a superior world and dove in the ocean of existence to explore and entertain ourselves. The new world filled us with excitement and we forgot that the clock is running and that our life is in danger because when our mission is over we must return to the beach. And if we do not get out, a friend must dive in to take us back. Similarly, we have stayed too long in our equipment and have identified with our physical form. Now, to go back home to the Kingdom of God, we must go through all the levels of consciousness in the ocean of existence, however difficult it is.
Going down is relatively effortless because we are fresh, ready to embark on any adventure. Everything is new, so we descend very quickly without feeling tired at all. But when we have to go back up, it is another story! We are exhausted, running almost out of oxygen, and we have forgotten our way up because we were a little too adventurous. But luckily, our Creator has provided us with a connecting line. Have you ever heard of the silver chord! That is our saving line and when we strike it, it makes some kind of music that will guide us back home safely.
Our good friends Jesus and Buddha went down to the bottom of the ocean of existence to find those who had stayed too long or that were lost. If we can go back alone, that is great, but if we cannot, then these people are necessary. They are the shepherds who have been waiting for our safety. So when we go up we have to fight through the many levels of water. Because of the law of gravity and the water pressure, it is harder to go up. Plus we are tired, so to go up is harder than to go down. Now, if someone is beside us to show us the way with a torch and bring us new oxygen bottles, then we are safe and feel secure. You see, we do not belong to this world of existence, it is only for us to play in and explore for a while. Because if we stay in the Kingdom of God for too long we might find it too blissful, or a little boring maybe!
We are in the presence of God already. It is just that we do not recognise it, so we feel the burden of being separated, of being alone with ah the pressures of this world. My intention is that you get a glimpse or some glimpses of this presence of God, and then you will be sure yourselves of His help, love and advice.
