For those awakening divine humans

Salvation Anyone?

33 Comments

Most of the world’s religions believe that god is separate from man and believe in good and evil, and in suffering.  Some refer to it as Karma.  Most teach the importance of striving for spiritual ‘purity,’ of releasing all ‘sensual’ desires, and of transcending their human-ness.

Some religions subscribe to the belief that Jesus Christ died on the cross to save us from our ‘sins.’ That we are born sinners, and only if we embrace Jesus as our messiah will we be able to have eternal life, and go to heaven when we leave this mortal coil. That we must worship an external god, and follow a lot of dogma to prove worthiness, or the consequences could be dire.

What a set-up!

Instilling such fear in the hearts and minds of people does serve a purpose: To keep them in control of their actions and even of their thoughts.(not) Let’s face it, when we are told we can’t have or do something, what’s the first thing we do? But it at least kept enough people in check so that the church could gain more power than it already had.  The Christian religion is softening these day, allowing more diversification, and alluding to a more loving and approachable god.  But they still pretty stubbornly insist that  god is external and that we need to follow ‘His’ path to find everlasting life.

Talk about mind-control!

But it’s losing its edge.  People are not getting their questions answered at church so much any more.  Questions like, “who am I really? I have followed all these rules yet I still feel empty inside. Where does true understanding of spirit come in? Even of self-love?” More and more people are beginning to see through the church’s power games and recognize its inability to teach a deeper connection to self. Most religions do not embrace the concept of god within or true self-love. Of putting self first. That no relationship is more sacred than the one with self and god/spirit within.  Anyone who practices self-love, who claims to have spirit in their body, to have god within, (other than when they are getting a healing or getting the devil ecorcised) is lumped into the “New Age” category and accused of being possessed by that same sneaky devil.

YOU CAN TAKE A MAN OUT OF THE CHURCH…

Many of us went through our organized religion stage, and it served us in many ways.  But we eventually moved away from the churches. However, we continued to internalize that judgmental god, at least until recently as we began to awaken. We still have some of the residue of that feeling of not being worthy, of being sinners, of being selfish (the worst of sins apparently) if we put ourselves first. But as we embrace our eternal selves, we are beginning to understand that being human, with a body that has needs and desires, is part of being spiritual. That being comfortable financially is absolutely important if we are to enjoy life here on the planet. In fact, that life here on the planet is supposed to be fun. It’s not meant as a punishment from god.

IF JESUS HAD AN iPAD 

Jesus (Yeshua) never intended to teach that we need to suffer for anything. Yes, he made the choice to push against his own community, rather than just walking away. The result was a lot of unnecessary suffering. Unfortunately back then he couldn’t copyright his messages so that those that followed might have gotten the original message right! And a part of that message was, “Don’t do what I did, which was trying to prove my truth to those who were not ready to hear it.  Martyrdom gets you nowhere!”  

Instead so much B.S. has been written and propagated in his name.

He embodied a new way, but he was also very human. He had his bad temper, and had no patience for game playing and feeders. All the stories created about him have been used for others’ power games. It was a burden to him to be seen as super-human, as being the ‘son of god’. Very few humans truly understand who Jesus was, and what he was trying to teach.

Those of us on the forefront of this awakening understand his true teachings. Many of us were there with him some 2000 years ago, assisting him to plant the seeds of the Christ Consciousness. Many of us feel that deep connection to him, not as a savior, but as a friend. He enjoys working with those of us advanced souls especially because we have broken through so much of the old stuck energies of the church.

So if anyone walks up to you and asks you “Have you been saved?” you could look them directly in the eyes, with the fire of spirit in yours, and say, “Yes, I saved myself a lot of suffering by loving myself and embracing the god within me.”

They may walk away half way through that sentence or they may try to contest it. But it doesn’t matter. You’re the Master. You get to experience anything you want.

Our lives are like great paintings or great pieces of music. If we focus on all the technical 'imperfections' we will miss the true beauty of the work. We won't see, or rather, FEEL the essence and spirit of the masterpiece. I no longer identify myself as a writer, artist, or musician. Rather I express my divinity, and my humanity through the media of art, music and writing. I began this blog because I wanted to give voice to my experiences and insights, and I wrote for myself primarily. Six years later, I am still writing for myself, and I am discovering that my experiences are not personal but universal - galactic even. And now I am more sure than ever that I am a new consciousness teacher, as each of you are. The way we teach is by going through the very human experiences, and as we ascend and shed our old selves, with love, and as we embody spirit in this lifetime, which we are all doing, we become the standards for others of the new divine human.

  2. Brilliantly put Maria. My whole life I felt so separate from jesus, he seemed so connected to christianity and so “super human” that out of all the masters I could relate to him least. Yet since awakening I feel closer to him everyday, I understand him now and your line about seeing him as a “friend” made me smile as that’s the exact way it feels! lol.

    • Yes, I can relate to what you are saying James. To me it always felt like I could never ‘live up’ to the qualities that Jesus was supposed to have possessed. And isn’t that how all the Masters were portrayed? And then is it any wonder we could never feel ‘good enough’ to be Masters of our own life?

      Such lies. But it’s time to own who we are. Sometimes I feel like, wow, I’m not just the person I see in the mirror, am I? I am this amazing, limitless, courageous soul, who is also absolutely in love with her human self.

      Thank you for sharing that you have been feeling closer to hime every day. I know others will relate to that too.

      It’s just incredible. 💕

    “So if anyone walks up to you and asks you “Have you been saved?” you could look them directly in the eyes, with the fire of spirit in yours, and say, “Yes, I saved myself a lot of suffering by loving myself and embracing the god within me.”

    I also kept remembering times when I would think, I can never eat icecream……and I just wanted to eat it!!!! heehee

    I was not raised any religion and became a Sikh when I was 17. So now I have Jesus come to me as this most loving presence. And I just can’t relate to the religious stuff since I never had that. Just the crazy human crap that came from being a Sikh, crazy human crap that is in any religion because we humans are in the mix. Humans are awesome but we do put our interpretation on things. 🙂

    My mum became a born again Christian and I sometimes say, Jesus would be having a big old heart attack about what folks are doing in his name. OY! He is one of my guides now. He goes by Jubal, as all the incarnations of Yeshua.

    love you dear sistar goddess!!!

    • elzabeth,
      Yes, Adamus St. Germaine once said that it was easier dealing with an aethiest than someone who was deep into organized religion. There are so many overlays associated with god and Yeshua, Jubal, Sananda, etc….

      Love you dear sistar goddess!!!💕

      • Both my kids are atheists! They are the most amazing humans on the face of the planet. Not that I am prejudiced or anything…….

      • They would have to be amazing…I mean, look at their amazing mom!

        A dear friend I mentioned in a post is also a practicing atheist and we are close and really enjoy each other’s company. But lately he and his husband have been going to some kind of unity church, which surprised me because he always seemed adamant about not believing in life after death. So maybe the term atheist could mean someone who is not religious but does believe in a universal source or spirit? But the word does seem to point to those who are not really affiliated with any religion…

  5. PS. Song is fun and great!!!!

  6. And it was FUNNY! I recently had a funny experience/thought. I love St. Francis and his prayer……and I was reading something very reverent and I stared hearing, “where is reverence, let me sow silly.” heehee

    Cracking myself up!

  7. Replying down here to your very kind comment. Thank you! You are sweet! There was no “reply” button up there. 🙂

    It is an interesting question. I tell my kids that we are connected absolutely. It is a matter of language. They are tuned into their Inner Voice. I may call it the same or Universe, or God/Goddess or a dear friend calls it Home Office, Source Energy……I like to think we are more connected than the language would sometimes indicate. 🙂 I am way closer to them……..and can talk about almost everything with them than most religious folks……but there are other reasons for that, I am sure. 🙂 ❤

    My hubby who belongs to what we call IDGAS (I asked him one time and he said I Don't Give A Shit (IDGAS) 🙂 thinks that lots of atheists are even more religious and dogmatic than some other religions. Anyway we have a fun family. IT works! We all respect each other's beliefs……

    So………………….it would be fun to be there with you chatting and drinking coffee…….

    love you dear Sistar Goddess!!!

  8. oh goodness Maria, this is so much what i’m feeling lately…

    “we continued to internalize that judgmental god… we still have some of the residue of that feeling of not being worthy, ”

    the ghosts of my religious past have been overwhelmmmming lately. it’s mostly because of what is happening all around with the election 😦 i’ve tried my best to tune it all out, but the past few weeks i’ve felt so so overwhelmed by the collective energy around it i’ve been a bit of an internal mess. it pretty much feels like all the energy of the hypocrisy and fear and dysfunction of all the southern baptist/evangelical christian characters from my childhood has multiplied all around me… it’s just screaming and shouting everywhere lately :(. i come here a few times a day just to read the words of y’all here… it helps me take a breath above the suffocating energy and get a lil’ reminder that i’m not bound to those energies anymore. i’ve been a bit shaken by how much those old energies still trigger so much anxiety and fear in me.

    thank you for holding this space Maria… when i come here i tangibly feel peace in me, ya know that kind of peace they preach about in church, but i never ever actually felt or found in church 💜 💜 💜

  9. sweet pea
    Indeed!!! I think we can all agree that the energies out there are heating up…especially now around the election….and I agree sometimes it’s hard to tune it out. When I sit at Starbucks sometimes an acquaintance will sit with me and they just go on about the election, and personally I feel pretty detached from it. And it’s interesting because it’s like a free-floating anxiety….now it’s about the election…later it will be something else in the news….to me it’s just distractions from people facing themselves.

    But at the end of the day, it seems that most of what we are feeling is not really our stuff…..that’s a big one to embrace….especially as women. It’s imperative that we disconnect ourselves from humanity. And that may sound cold, but it’s what we must do in order to become free. We can’t continue to download everyone else’s emotions into our hearts and our bodies.

    Because this integration we are going through, loving ourselves, demands all of our attention. And also because as we set ourselves free as you know we set them free too. It’s a win-win…and agreed..meanwhile, it’s so comforting to have this amazing group of souls here to connect with, even without words sometimes…just to feel everyone’s energies here.

    So thank YOU dear sweet pea for being part of this precious group…

    • yes Maria, so comforting. even if i don’t say a thing, just reading what y’all share helps me find fresh air again.

      and yes i would feel detached from it all too if it weren’t for the heavy religion energy that’s been stirring about :(. it’s reminded me just how much religion has always separated me completely from spirit.

      but yes so much this….

      ” it seems that most of what we are feeling is not really our stuff….”

      i swear no matter how much i know that, i still forget it over and overrrrrr lol. i’ve been a bit back and forth between paralyzed and anxious with it all the past few weeks, and tonight reading this post i finally remembered that this energy isn’t mine. these feelings too shall pass through.

      💜 big hugs Maria

      • Sweet pea
        It’s interesting, as much as I feel detached from what’s going on politically, in other areas I get triggered. Especially when it comes to a health issue, or something in my immediate environment I am sensitive to. Like with the washing machine issue. Or it might be driving through traffic and not feeling safe.
        I was thinking today that, when I was younger I seemed to be less fearful of things. But then again, a lot of those fears were buried. And I think what is happening now is as we are integrating our christ consciousness, all of those fears that were buried are coming to the surface (and again not to take it personally as they are not our fears to begin with,) but those fears are being triggered and it seems, the deeper we go the more there needs to be released.
        And yes it does look good on paper. Saying that these emotions are not mine is one thing, but when we are experiencing them, it’s hard not to take them personally. As our truth.
        But then again, that’s what separates those of us in the forefront of this transformation from the rest of humanity. We are literally the first to go through this so for us it is going to be the hardest.

      • gosh yes i feel you on the health issues/physical stuff. so soooo hard not to take it personal…these bodies are where our soul calls “home” while we’re here, and that “home” couldn’t possibly feel less like home.

        i used to be quite a bit more scared of what the physical ailments actually mean health wise and of the idea of physical death, but i’ve been “sick” for so long that now i realize i mostly feel unsafe because i’m trapped in a physical being that doesn’t represent my spirit energy. :\ it’s like i’m in a total stranger’s body allll the time, and that makes my soul feel like it’s never safe since this body isn’t truly my home.

        out of everything i find the most comfort in the idea you share of this all being stuff from our lineage passing through. helps me trust a little more that it’s temporary, and i’ll find my way to me eventually.

      • Wow, it’s funny you say…

        “i used to be quite a bit more scared of what the physical ailments actually mean health wise and of the idea of physical death, but i’ve been “sick” for so long that now i realize i mostly feel unsafe because i’m trapped in a physical being that doesn’t represent my spirit energy. :\ it’s like i’m in a total stranger’s body allll the time, and that makes my soul feel like it’s never safe since this body isn’t truly my home”.

        Because that is what has crossed my mind of late, that I am not really afraid of dying, because now I know more than ever that my soul lives on…and that my true fear is being ‘stuck’ here in a body that is unhealthy.

        But, as I ask my soul about this, it tells me that I would never be stuck in that way…that my human spirit is the one with that fear, but my soul, which is an aspect of my eternal self, has no such fear, and in love for my human self, it would leave the body behind if it came down to being so very uncomfortable in it.

        In other words, our soul honors its human partner. But our soul is also that part of us that has the capacity to rebalance our bodies…unfortunately, it takes more patience with these bodies since there is so much energy that needs to be set free. And well…sometimes we are just dry on patience….and who can blame us????

        But sweet pea…I have been experiencing, in spite of my physical conditions, an amazing bliss…so many times during the day I feel my soul in my body, and during those times, I feel no discomfort. I feel so ecstatic to be here…my environment becomes so fluid, and I feel like I am my soul. Like there is no separation between my human self and that eternal self…these states of consciousness come and go, but they are more and more present…and what it tells me is that with time, and continuing to just love ourselves more and more…the light body does transmute much of the physical imbalances…because that light body is the vehicle for our soul.

        But having said that, if it gets too uncomfortable in these bodies, and we decide enough is enough, that things just aren’t moving fast enough, we are honored and welcomed back by our non-physical family. We can leave at any time. We have already accomplished what we came here to do…that there are many other realities we can explore as souls…and staying here now is just for the joy of experiencing our soul in our body and in our life…which has never been done before. But it’s not mandatory in order for us to experience our enlightenment…because our soul is already enlightened and already ascended.

        As I said before, this planet has been blessed by our presence.

        But I just wanted to say to you that something is definitely happening…in spite of the hardships I have been going through, I am beginning to feel something I have never felt before…and I can’t describe it in words but I think I am sticking around because I want more of it…like a kid in a candy shop!!!

        Love to you dear sister…it’s so nice to hear from you…I had been thinking of you lately. I always get so much from your comments. So much wisdom. 💕

      • yes! perfectly what i feel…

        “…my true fear is being ‘stuck’ here in a body that is unhealthy….”

        and so good Maria 💜, this gave me chill bumps…

        “…But, as I ask my soul about this, it tells me that I would never be stuck in that way…that my human spirit is the one with that fear, but my soul, which is an aspect of my eternal self, has no such fear, and in love for my human self, it would leave the body behind if it came down to being so very uncomfortable in it.

        i’ve been wrapped up in 3d energy stuff muuuuch too much the past few months and i’ve been really out of touch with spirit :\ the way my human self sees things has been distracting me from the things my heart knows. those

        and yes Maria, i’ve felt this in moments before!

        “… times during the day I feel my soul in my body, and during those times, I feel no discomfort. I feel so ecstatic to be here…my environment becomes so fluid, and I feel like I am my soul. Like there is no separation between my human self and that eternal self…”

        about a year and a half ago i went through a bit of time where i was having those moments and it was magic! they were fleeting, but they were amazing. i’ve been so out of touch with spirit the past year or so that i haven’t been able to find my way to that energy in quite a while 😦 i think having felt that before is what is making my patience hard to come by. or as you say…

        “…sometimes we are just dry on patience…”

        haha soooo true :0)

        but that feeling you speak of…that’s so so much of what i’ve been craving to find my way to. that feeling feels more real than anything i have ever felt. and in moments when i have felt that connection, the human part that is trying to “logic” my way there quieted down and i just trusted my soul to find the way… hoping so so much to find that energy again. i think with everything i’m feeling, my heart is just really calling me to get back in touch with spirit again.

  10. Yes sweet pea…..that feeling IS MORE REAL than the other stuff that our minds spew out! And it IS hard to get back there when we spend too much time in 3D, whether that time is spent physically there or just in our mind.

    And yep…me too…at times I still try to get there by thinking my way and just get frustrated. In fact anyhing i do from logic never works well any more. Cant seem to get away with it. It almost feels like as we download more of this consciousness, this light, we just can’t remain in that old world without it hurting pretty bad. And even having one foot in and one foot out isn’t working….it becomes an all our nothing. Its good but it’s demanding more of our attention to what is really important…and I have to say, there is very little…no…there is nothing more important than my own joy.

    Whew, in another lifetime that statement would have cost me my head!!!

    Boy that famous statement “This is the best of times and the worst of times…”. They weren’t kidding! 💙💕💖

    • yes Maria, having one foot in and one foot out isn’t working :\ i’ve for sure had too heavy of a foot in the old lately… and nope can’t get away with it.

      ya know i thought of somethin’ after i shared that i’ve felt that feeling you speak of before, and i think when i felt it, it was that i felt my body go “up” to where my spirit is more than my spirit come into where my body is… not sure if that makes any kinda sense? haha. i guess more that i felt like physically traveled there rather than spiritually coming here? it’s prolly why i couldn’t sustain it for much… it still wasn’t the true intention of bringing spirit here. up or down right or left tho… that merging of body and soul… so much magic 💜and yup, not much else matters other than that feeling.

      • Yes..it sure does make sense…there are times it feels like i am not completely ‘grounded’ here after I connect with spirit. Because in a way we arent quite here but in that less dense dimension. On a human level it can feel like we are drifting off, and it can feel both glorious AND frighening….

        And it’s actually a good point you bring up….because at the core of our human self is that issue of trust. And of not feeling safe. Yes it feels amazing, but How can we trust this god presence to have our best interest at heart? Our mind wants hard bed evidence first. But of course it doesnt work that way.

        So what we have is two seeming opposites – the human with all its fears and limitations – and the divine self in all its eternallness and limitlessness… both coming together. Our mind is having its reservations here….saying, how the f**k is this even supposed to work???

        And of course the other thing to consider being once we do allow our total enlightenment and integration in these bodies will we even want ro be here much longer. (My next post explores that more in depth)…

      • that’s such a good question! if what i am wishing for was finally real…if i was fully connected with my true soul energy, and if that connection was within a physical being that was vibrant and healthy and captured my spirit, would i finally be so happy to be alive and excited to live in this physical world? or would this place end up feeling even more intolerable and horrible because my energy would resonate so much higher than this world that has so much awful energy :\ hmmmmm.

        yay i’m excited to read it 🙂

      • yeah, good question, right? And, I guess WE are the ones who will have the answer….as we go through the experience ourselves. My sense is that, if we stick it out and go through the transformation, some of us will stay longer than others, but I think we will eventually feel that we could have it all…we could leave, come back in an entirely different form for short visits. But speaking for myself, it feels like I will not want to stick around for a really long time. Just enough to get a good taste of this embodied spirit thing. I think as you say, that we would feel even more than ever the crudeness of the 3D world. It would be even more apparent to us how shut down others are. And if we wanted to still be of service to this planet we could do it from other realms, even from the New Earth. We would have many options…it’s kind of exciting when you think of it.

        And, the important thing to know is, we do NOT have to get to that point of total integration to still reap the benefits of an enlightened state. 💜

      • yes Maria! i’ve actually always intangibly sensed something like this for myself…

        “we could do it from other realms”

        when i daydream of what happiness is to me, it’s never anything that makes sense to what makes people “happy” in this reality. so even if my body healed and i became the “me” i am yearning to be, this still wouldn’t be home. in the past couple years i’ve even felt this connection to the 6th dimension. not sure why or what that really means, lol, but whenever there is talk about the earth and our society shifting into the 5th dimension, i always feel like… hmmm it’s still not high enough for me :\. i think it makes perfect sense to my own soul to feel like some of us are called not only to pull spirit into the physical dimension where humans are, but that once we’ve integrated body and soul, we’ll be able to take our physical being into higher dimensions or other realms. i don’t really know how to say it, cause i don’t mean it quite as linear as that sounds, but i for sure feel my own soul is meant to exist in “somewhere” far beyond this place.

      • HMM…that would make a great song:

        “Oh can’t you see, can’t you see
        It’s still not high enough for me
        It’s just not where I wanna be
        To hell with this ascension
        Take me to the sixth dimension.”

        Actually sweet pea, kidding aside, what you are describing is ascension…it’s the integration of our light body into these bodies, and then taking these bodies with us, well not these bodies as they are now, and not the flesh and bones but the essence of the body, and that gives us the opportunity to travel to higher and higher dimensions…which exist kind of right here but are not physical.

        And in that sense they are far beyond the 3D world we know. And we can come back and forth if we want to. But very few will be able to perceive us here because we will be essentially lightbody. The merkaba being our soul’s vehicle of transportation at that point.

        So you are very aptly describing something that obviously you have a deep understanding of on a soul-level.

    • yay love the idea of that, Maria 💜💜💜 just gotta keep trusting our way there.
