Lesson 5. building bridges to more
"Why is this chapter titled Building Bridges to More?"
… "Bridges are built so one can cross from one river bank to another. Here it means that the One Who Is All is not a remote divine or cosmic force, sucking up eventually everything in a gigantic, what lately humans call black hole. On the contrary, the opposite happens. The fifth aspect, name, flame and activity of the I AM indicates an ever-unfolding to more space, intensity and grandness. It includes connecting with 'the other side', the negative state. All that exists has the same nature. The name says that the connection with evermore joyous adventures is there. As stressed so often, life's movement is from within outwards, from life's spirit core, through internal processes, to the splendid outside everywhere. There is no end to it."
HUMANS ARE FAMILIAR WITH EVERYTHING MOVING ON IN LIFE
WHY NOTHING STANDS STILL IS AN INTRIGUINGLY RELEVANT ISSUE
ALL LIFE MOVING ON EXPRESSES THE NATURE OF THE ONE HOLY
"On earth, the name of the game seems to be deterioration. Even the sun dies eventually. What does this mean?"
… "This question goes to the heart of the situation on earth and of the whole human experience. What people observe as happening with and on their planet is not what goes on in the rest of the universe. The signs of decay, decline, not-willed endings and limits are symptoms of earth's unnatural, non-love pseudo-existence. For humans in the midst of this it is a painfully confusing and seemingly senseless situation. And yet, this distortion of true reality serves the monumental positive progression of all that is and will be. The contrived realm of delusions, posing as a viable alternative to the real world, has been penetrated. No cosmic or personal disaster can stop the emergence of normalcy.
FOR PEOPLE ON EARTH, MOVING ON HAS MANY SCARY ASPECTS
PHYSICALLY, ALL BODIES END UP DEAD. TIME ACTS AS A TYRANT
SLEEP AND RESTING GIVE SOME RESPITE FROM MOVING ON AS FACT
"Was there no other way to explore the feasibility of an alternative world outside the Totality of I AM?"
… "No, there was not. Realize that the One Holy is the All in all absoluteness. Love, with its total freedom and Reality without any boundaries are the nature of the One in and before Whom existing takes place. People can close their minds to this and can come up with theories and personal ideas; they can consider the seven aspects, names, faces, selves, of the One Who Is All as negotiable instead of accepting them as revealing all life's glorious secret. The question whether another type of existing is possible outside the completely satisfying positive state had to be addressed. Otherwise, participating in the ever-expanding glory of the one eternal reality would not be a choice made in freedom."
THE ALL-MOVEMENT TO MORE IS AN ASPECT OF BEING'S SPLENDOR
IN A PARADOXICAL WAY, EVEN EVIL SERVES THE UNIVERSAL PROGRESS
EVIL PROVES EXHAUSTIVELY ITS OWN FUNDAMENTAL FALLACY
"Why do all the suffering and ugly events still happen? They have been going on for so long already."
… "No answer to this will satisfy. Staying on this side of a river, one can look and speculate what may be on the other side. But unless one goes there, builds a bridge in other words, one will not know if it was worthwhile wondering. The present generation of humans and their planet earth, fabricated by their ancestors, represent the 'other side'. As true life is totally good, the alternative has to be something 'not-good'. This not-good or evil is still rampant. The reason being that all answers to the question where a potential alternative life would lead to, have to be in, in order for the negative state to lose its justification for existing. Which is happening. This particular and never to be repeated cycle of time is ending."
TRUE FREEDOM ALLOWS ANYTHING, EVEN ITS OWN DESTRUCTION.
THE FREEDOM TO DESTROY AND ITS RESULTS IS PORTRAYED ON EARTH
THE ONE WHO IS ALL, SURVIVING THE NON-LOVE, EMASCULATES EVIL
"Is the importance of one's life, besides developing individually, also in contributing to the process through which the Totality expands?"
… 'So true. Remember that all occurrences within the oneness of life are not amorphous blurs, but are with their endless variety approximating another total. In its parts and as a whole, all that is is as the lover and the beloved of the One I AM in His/Her/Its absolute state. It is the pinnacle for each individual to be available as a vessel and conduit for the splendor of life. To achieve this, humans on earth need to do quite a bit of mental adjusting. One has to un-prioritize other people's, society's and one's own ideas, and keep reminding oneself that one is already healed, home and welcomed back in the universally happy process of perfecting the perfection."
THE ALL-PRESENT SPIRIT OF LOVE AND TRUTH WILL NEVER SUCCUMB
THE PERPETRATORS OF EVIL KNOW THEIR TIME IS RUNNING OUT
INVESTING IN ONE'S CLOSENESS TO THE ALL PREVENTS DETERIORATION
"How and where does being a builder of bridges, or being a bridge to new adventures oneself, fits into how to see one's daily life?"
… "The true identity of all that is in life, including the one who reads this, lies in one's mirroring the nature of the One Whose seven 'names' cover all that exists. The name One Holy covers the unknowable. The name Love reveals life's essence. The name Truth signifies its substance. The name Proper stands for the structure of all reality. The fifth name, Builder of Bridges, indicates the ever-expanding volume of life, that it always moves to more wholeness and newness. Another name for this is 'Healing'. Nobody will deny that this word fits the human situation. It announces that everyone can grow away from what is sick, negative, stagnant or not whole."
ONE CAN OBSERVE IN ONESELF THE PROCESS OF BEING HEALED
ON THE SPIRIT LEVEL, HEALING CAN BE COMPLETE, IF ONE SO DESIRES
RESISTANCE TO BEING HEALED WILL PERSIST IN ONE'S MIND AND BODY
"What does the name Healing mean for those realms the lessons say are already perfect?"
… "The name Healing reveals that life's Totality Who is as a person for us, is not oblivious to humanity's distress. In the positive state nothing is broken or has any cracks. There, the name covers and honors the ever unfolding to more beauty. On earth, this aspect can be mirrored fully only on the spiritual level. The word Healing signals for both the positive and the negative state the universe-wide recognition that the non-reality of the negative state is in the process of being overcome. And also that the restoration of the shattered wholeness is a personal investment of the One Whose Presence keeps claiming the areas where true reality is denied, resisted and obscured – meaning all of the negative state."
FANTASIZING ABOUT SOME IDEAL WORLD OR HEAVEN IS USELESS
TRUE AND PERFECT REALITY TAKES PLACE WITHIN ONE'S OWN SPIRIT
THE EMBRACE OF THE ONE WHO IS HEALING SETS A PERSON FREE
"Does the literal meaning of the name Healing only apply to the situation in the negative state?"
… "Be careful here. Although the negative state can be called a zone of displacement, isolated, insulated, outside reality, etc., it still is included in being in existence. In this sense, the healing from its self-inflicted wounds is also an issue for the becoming whole again of the totality of all universes and dimensions. One could say that those in the positive state miss out on the energies that have been and are used for abusing what for them is sacred and perfect. Therefore, the name Healing indirectly applies to the universal condition in this cycle of time as a whole. What is lost, rebelling and pseudo is in the process of returning home. Once purified, it completes the totality of the positive state with what its mission was."
BEFORE THE HUMAN PURSUIT, REALITY 'LACKED' HAVING OPTIONS
ADDED TO EXISTENCE ARE NOW THE EXAMPLES OF WHAT LIFE IS NOT
AVAILABLE NOW IS A REAL CHOICE, AS NON-LOVE BECAME AN OPTION
"How 'more' whole can a person get while on earth?"
… "Everybody should ask this question. The glorious answer is: 'Don't worry too much about it.' When measured by human standards, one is always wrong. Simply because no one on earth knows what being whole is. When one lives in a closed-off cave, one can theorize or fantasize what full-fledged light is, and come to conclusions on the basis of what little glimmer of light seeps through somehow, but one just cannot know its true volume and impact until one steps outside. These lessons stress working on positive progress primarily within oneself, by increasing one's love and honesty. This leads to more alertness and wisdom. From those, mental and external improvements can sprout even if their eternal value is hardly measurable."
THE MOVEMENT TO MORE IS THE SAME IN ALL THE UNIVERSES
THE REAL UNIVERSE IS ONE OF NON-TIME AND NO LIMITING DISTANCE
HUMANS' LINEAR TIME GIVES A DISTORTED IMAGE OF ETERNITY
"As more wholeness is primarily a spiritual pursuit, how precisely are one's internal and external affected?"
… "Nature's three levels reflect life's normal composition, so they should be completely integrated and function harmoniously. Some people's lives seem balanced. The three aspects of their person seem to cooperate happily. Nothing is wrong with learning from this. One can make it a daily project to pay attention to one's intuition, to see through all divisions within, to sharpen one's spiritual identity and to take charge of one's actions by correcting non-love reactions. In short, one can consciously unify the activities of spirit, mind and body. Light, joy, realness, wisdom, progress and health can increase substantially when one both humbly and proudly operates before and with the One Whose image humans are."
TAKING CONTROL OF WHAT ONE'S MIND DOES IS HIGHLY PROFITABLE
SUPPORTING PEOPLE WHO SEEM POSITIVE IS MUTUALLY REWARDING
THE DECISION TO BE A HEALING FACTOR MUST COME FROM FREE WILL
"Is there ever a saturation point for wholeness or for being healed?"
… "No, there never is a moment or point in time that is a standstill, stagnation or final stage. When a level of complete satisfaction is reached, continuing would become repeating what one did already. So one simply moves to new challenges, new adventures and new creative efforts, alone or together. To human ears, this may sound potentially very taxing or tiresome, as if in all eternity one always must be on the go – without a break or goofing off once a while. Well, goofing-off, relaxing, doing 'nothing', stillness and silence can be as desirable an option as anything else. Moving to more fulfillment is always new, adventurous, unique and pleasurable. It completely lacks the pressure and slavery of time or expectations as humans know them."
CHOOSING TO BE A HEALING FACTOR IS A PERFECT MOVE
LOVE, FORGIVENESS, WISDOM AND JOY WORK AS CURATIVE ENERGIES
LIFE'S JOURNEY CAN BE DEFINED AS 'TRAVELING FOR THE JOY OF IT'
"It is very difficult to grasp that nothing is final or has no ending. It sounds like an ever-reclining horizon."
… "This is difficult or even impossible to grasp for those fabricated by the negative forces. You could say that the organs and tissues have been removed from the human brains that process the joy of eternity and not having limits. In the normal, the positive state, nothing is confined. The information in these lessons therefore appeals to the little left in people that somehow senses the true state of affairs in the universe. Moving to more wholeness on earth, which means more health, wisdom, love, etc., without reaching its maximum, parallels perfecting the perfection that colors the rest of the universe. The movement and direction are the same. Without horizons, traveling would be boring."
MANY ENDINGS ON EARTH ARE VERY PAINFUL, ESPECIALLY DEATH
LOSSES, OR THE FEAR OF THEM, CAN DOMINATE PEOPLE'S OUTLOOK
THE ALL-SPIRIT MERGING WITH ONE'S OWN ALWAYS COMFORTS
"Why do some people radiate a wholesomeness, seem to have a healing touch or are considered saints?"
… "This is an easy question to answer. No two people or no two anything are the same. Particularly to humans it applies that everyone's mission is different. When a soldier is dropped off in the midst of enemy lines, the chance to survive is minimal. When dropped off way behind the front, many tasks may be accomplished. In other words, it makes all the difference with what body and mind, in what environment and why one is born. It depends on the arrangement made with one's eternal self that volunteered to take on human life on earth. As said, no person remembers any of these preliminaries of their mission. The purpose and challenge of being born on earth is to make choices one way or another."
IN EACH PERSON'S SPIRIT HIDES THE SECRET OF ONE'S POSITIVE CORE
THE ALL WHO IS ALWAYS SPEAKS, RADIATES AND CAN BE INTUITED
NO CIRCUMSTANCES CHANGE THAT ONE IS INCLUDED IN THE WHOLE
"Did everybody receive a sort of a script for their mission, even if at birth this is erased from memory?"
… "This is basically true. Nothing in the whole universe is ever forced on anybody. There is the volunteering and then the preparation by being informed about the negative state's dire atmosphere as opposite of the life one knows. There also is the promise that whatever one will do, even to the point of choosing evil, the route back is open. In this sense one knows what to expect. Once born, the only guidelines left are the vestiges of real life needed to exist on earth. Those cause the yearning for truth which, when paid attention to, can lead to realizing one has a mission and is capable to act as an agent of the real reality. Pursuing this direction would qualify as following the original – but not remembered – script."
THESE LESSONS ADDRESS ALL HUMANS ON EARTH; NO EXCEPTIONS
NOBODY IS NOT MOVING ON – THE APPEARANCES OF EVIL INCLUDED
RELIGIONS CLAIMING TO 'HAVE' THE TRUTH SERVE THE EVIL STATE
'Some people claim that regression to a former life is possible."
… "Not to be sarcastic, but those experiences signal just that, regression. They interfere with unfolding as one's own eternal self. One gets sidetracked by the fact that in the negative state nothing is in its proper place. The actual or imagined lives of past or future people entering one's awareness only confounds one's present identity and the one before one's birth, the way hallucinations or fantasies can do. The workings of the human brain are not a reliable source or conduit for information about what occurs in reality. Whatever is concocted in human minds represents regression when it takes away from more personal closeness to and happier reflecting the One Person in Whom one's individual life and mission originate."
LIVING BECOMES RICH WHEN FILLED WITH AND PROCESSED BY LOVE
THINKING AND FEELING ON EARTH CAN NEVER BE COMPLETELY PURE
CHOOSING INTIMACY WITH LIFE'S CENTER CREATES SOLID STABILITY
"Is being a healing presence the highest level a person can reach in her or his lifetime on earth?"
… "This is a beautiful and completely correct way of describing how people can choose. Being a whole-making force, from free will, for the sake of it and not for some secondary gain, and helping to heal whatever brokenness in oneself, in others or in one's environment, is a breakthrough of love and truth – regardless of how successful one is with it. It means that one gives center place to the fragments of true life left within oneself, refuses to be slave of the externals and heeds to the deepest yearnings in one's heart. Also in the other dimensions, the drive is to be optimally creative as part of the unfolding of beauty. It has everyone glowing with pride and satisfaction."
HOLDING ON TO GRUDGES OR TO INJUSTICE DONE IMPEDES PROGRESS
RISING ABOVE EVIL AND FORGIVING PAVE THE WAY TO LASTING HEALTH
GROWING SPIRITUALLY CAUSES A QUIETLY MOVING-AWAY FROM EVIL
"Is focusing on one's honest desire to be a healing factor instead of on 'results' a matter of setting priorities?"
… "Yes, as long as the two- what one actually does and what one wants to do - are not separated. Just thinking about things without acting on them and showing with deeds what is in one's mind is sterile, means stagnation and stops progress. For instance, if a love one cherishes is not expressed, it suffocates. The spirit of real and full living never sits still. It is true that not results or success, but the activity of adjusting one's thinking, attitude and behavior shows that one is on eternity's track. It proves that one is serious about becoming an agent of love and truth and that one wants to represent one's eternal Partner and Lover. This way the optimum in one's mission on earth is achieved."
MOVING TO MORE WHOLENESS IS A FULL-TIME JOB ON ALL LEVELS
SUPPORT, PSYCHOLOGICAL TOOLS AND DISCIPLINE PROMOTE HEALTH
WITHOUT SPIRITUAL ALIGNMENT MENTAL HEALTH IS NOT FEASIBLE
"Being a healer is pictured as an ideal. But what about the destructive tendencies in human minds?"
…"This was brought up before. From a universal as well as human standpoint all desiring and acting out destruction is despicable. Protection against whatever negative should be a top priority. Yet, these lessons paint the whole picture. They say that even the perpetrators of evil function in a wider context than making victims or causing pain. It is in every respect appalling when life does not show its goodness and wisdom. It is against nature. This abomination is now in the process of being exposed exhaustively – it never has to be repeated in the next cycles of existence. Choosing evil is still an option. So is accepting the love that surrounds it and that has the last word, regardless."
IT CAN BE SENSED THAT EVIL CANNOT WIN AND IS TEMPORARY
NURTURING INTIMACY WITH LIFE'S SOURCE ILLUMINATES ONE'S PATH
OBSTACLES CAN CAUSE EXTREME PAIN, YET ONE'S SPIRIT SURVIVES
"How does the love nature of the All Who Is change evil and its victims?"
… "It does not! It is hard to figure out for humans, but everything negative and evil contributes to the depletion for all eternity of even the potential of anything that feeds the delusion that the One Who is All is not exclusively love. Living on earth is not a game, a fate or inconsequential. It is a courageous act of universal proportions. People have no knowledge of this. Love is not forced on them, neither is the desire to resist evil and bring about positive change. Change has to come from free will in order to be genuine and effective. These lessons reveal the possibility for whoever wants it to have direct contact with the One Whose Love Presence is on the level of victim and perpetrator alike."
MANY INEFFECTIVE METHODS ARE PROFFERED TO RELIEVE SUFFERING
STRUGGLES FOR FREEDOM, JUSTICE, PROGRESS, GRACE HUMAN HISTORY
INNATE TO ALL LIFE IS THE DRIVE TO MOVE ON, TO UNFOLD, TO GROW
"Has everybody the same chance to be within the radius of healing?"
… "The healing aspect of life, its unfolding to more wholeness, refers to all existence as being a process going on on all levels. This fifth lesson highlights the internal aspect of moving on. It points at a for-all-people liberating phenomenon. Which is that in the course of one's life one can at any time decide to clear one's head, cleanse one's motivations, start to think by an inner light and adjust one's attitude and reactions so that they become more positive. Included is forgiveness and letting go of past wrongs. It does not mean forgetting or whitewashing any of it. It indicates a transformation, as consciously one now operates from one's healed spirit within. Also, inanimate objects wait to be liberated and restored to their proper positive use."
IT IS DARING TO FEEL RESPONSIBLE FOR CHOOSING ONE'S LIFESTYLE
IT IS DARING TO SEE ONE'S ETERNAL JOURNEY AS HAPPENING TODAY
TRAVELING WITH THE ONE HOLY AFFECTS ALL LIFE'S ENCOUNTERS
"Will the names Builder of Bridges and Healing ever be changed?"
… "People develop all sorts of coping mechanisms to deal with the pain from earth's brokenness. They think it is a normal part of life. Let it be known that the slightest disturbance of harmony or the minutest scratch on life's wholeness causes an explosion of love-energy that wants to surround and see restored the affected area. Humans are used to imperfection and pain, but true reality is not and never will be. From the first second of non-love, the nature of the One Who Is All was mobilized to face the infernal affront. This is expressed in 'building bridges'. Love's presence bridges the chasm between truth and lies, providing all the negative state's evil with a road back to reality's home – with healing. When nothing evil is left, the names may be adjusted."
WORRIES, FRUSTRATION AND FEARS COME WITH EARTH'S BROKENNESS
ACCEPTING THAT ALL PROGRESSES TO MORE GLORY IS EXHILARATING
THE SONG OF VICTORY, PEACE AND JOY CAN BE IN EVERYONE'S HEART
