Take what you are going through and move it to the next level. First of all you must become convinced that there is a next level onto which you may move. In order to do this you have to of course take the leap of faith. This leap of faith means that you expect that when you let go of all preconceptions the highest conception that you can think of will be there. This is when you leap, when you have the certainty that something higher is there.
The greater part of faith is in spending your focus on this highest area of awareness. It is a part of your consciousness and yet it remains hidden for the most part simply because you refuse to pay attention to it. The converse of this mystery is the awakening of your awareness. This awakening takes place by consciously determining your highest state of being.
What is it then that we find at this highest state being especially since it is by definition hidden? This presents a paradox and yet also a clue as to the mode of operation that we are seeking to uncover. The only thing then that will include both the mystery and its revelation is what might be called the “unified field theory” as applied to consciousness. The unified field of Einstein is outside of the range of this discussion.
The “unified field” includes within its definition the concept of unity or the aspect of relating all things to one thing. Now we have to accept for a moment that any of our descriptions would be second best since they are coming from a state of being that is less than the unified being. This may be so, however, there is a way around this conundrum.
If there is unity then it must be continuous and this means it is happening even now despite our limited capacity to perceive it. Now once we accept this premise then we can operate freely within the realm of unity making clear the concept that whatever we do is integrally a part of this unity. It couldn’t be otherwise because how could anything now be a part of the unity?
In fact it would seem that the only way the unity ever becomes self aware is because it keeps asking questions about itself. The more questions it asks the deeper within this unity the revelation appears to enlighten.
It therefore this process of unity and enlightenment that serves as the push pull of the universe. We have a desire and it must be met and yet we are thwarted until we understand that it isn’t the desire itself that seeks attainment it the unification of the thought and the desire that is opening itself up for manifestation.
The same may be said for prayers and blessings which are simply another way of expressing desires and manifestations of desires. We have to become aware that this dichotomy is really one thing. Our role in this back and forth of Creation is like that of a director trying to get the best performances out of his actors. The key to this entire equation i.e. the equals sign in the middle is ‘”suggestion.”
Suggestion is the Shekhinta discussed so many times in these pages. It is the middle pillar of the Tree of Life, the connection between the mystery and the revelation, and the means by which the thought produces the form.
Think on this between the lines and explore the openings that appear within and you will understand what it means to move level by level to the awareness of the unity of all things, a journey that continues forever. B”H.
