Communion with your Higher Self or what we have come to know as the Energy Parent, or the Holy Christ Self is not practiced in today’s world. There is a Great Unknowable Source from which all things have proceeded, be they animal, vegetable or mineral, be they in this Solar System or another and the most common term for this source is God. In Scripture, this Source has been personalized for ease of understanding. And because the side of it with which we are most familiar is active, powerful, knowledgeable and present everywhere, we have come to know it as our Heavenly Father. The more subtle aspects relating to the heavenly Mother, such as intuition, nurturing, compassion, kindness, mercy, caring, and so on have often been overlooked.
Words like “In Him we live and move and have our being,” maybe be familiar to you if you have read Scripture. You are because God is; there is no separation except in your conscious mind. You have become an individual because the Father/Mother has been individualized in you; thus you reveal the life of the deity at the materialistic level. Your mortal sense and personality blinds you to this truth at the moment because you are more than likely used to looking without instead of looking within. There is no separation between you or me or those who have left the physical body. We are all connected at the deeper levels, but fear puts up a barrier. Fear exists only in your mind it is not a reality; it is of your own creation by your reaction to the outer, while not knowing the inner. Fear is only fantasizing about something that might happen when you are focused outwardly. When you are attuned inwardly, there is no fear, there is only love or aspects of the energy of love; Love is an attribute of God, one of the four divine qualities that go to make up the name of God. But if you have locked God out of your life by letting in fear, how can you know love? You are all sons and daughters of the Most High, you have the ability to channel the Christ Consciousness, and as you enter into Communion, this is the attitude you should take in with you; a son or a daughter approaching the Energy Parent, the heavenly Father/Mother within you. This connection will open your chakras and allow your awareness to operate at a different level and will guide you to experience a deeper level of meditation. Your relationships will improve, and you will experience a deeper sense of peace.
The heavenly Mother within you is represented in Scripture as the World Mother or Cosmic Feminine Principle or Holy Virgin, the Holy Spirit. The allegories tell of the outgoing of the soul, the emergence into matter, or “the fall”, and the grief and subjection which she therefore brings upon herself. This phase is, in Genesis, represented by Eve. The second condition is that of her restoration, her restitution. This phase is represented for us in the Christian mysteries under the name of Mary. Her emergence from matter and glorification in “heaven” is represented in the Christian Mysteries as the woman in Revelation with a crown of twelve stars upon her head and the moon under her feet. But she will always be travailing in pain until the birthing of the Christ consciousness in humanity is complete.
The initial state symbolizes the present status of humanity; the latter signifies its future attainment. If you tune into the deeper parts of yourself and discover the love that resides there, you will be able to enter into the kingdom of heaven that resides inside you. This is not so difficult. First of all you must cast off all limitations, all jealousies, all antagonisms, all ideas that lead to separation, all that hinders the true expression of the Father/Mother, the Energy Parent that lives inside you. If you would look into your mind you would see the thoughts, images and ideas, the conflicts, the sorrows, the depressions you create. All these limitations manifest in your mind only through not understanding the truth. Allow these limitations that burden you to drop from you at once. You can do this in the blinking of an eye – if you choose to – it is your choice; and then you will find yourself in heaven. Heaven is a state of consciousness, not a place. Thus you bring heaven with you when you clear your minds of all limitations. But in doing this, do not regard the work that is done as the greatest, but the love in which it is performed.
Refrain from thinking, “I have done this; I have built that; I have created this; I have created that; I have healed this person; I have helped that one.” No one creates or heals anything or anyone separate from God, for it is God that gave you the power to do so. There is no outside of God. Even the Master said: “I of myself do nothing, but the Father within me, he doeth the work.”
Therefore learn to recognize that the source of power is love; the “x” factor in healing is love and it only comes through the Christ consciousness that you activate within you; recognize then, the love by which it is performed. Then be conscious of the Christ consciousness that channels through your heart and you will be conscious of ever fresh unfoldment. You will see, hear and know the creative power of the Spirit of God personified in the Christ consciousness within you.
Real prayer is deep earnestness; it has great attractive power and being in earnest prayer, means being in communion with the Father/Mother, the Energy Parent through the divinity that resides within you, the Christ consciousness. So before you lay hands on another, in earnest prayer, you may request something to the effect of “Lord, I have prepared myself by clearing my thoughts and emotional body. Use me as a channel to help this one. Let your love and your healing come through me to assist this one.” And as you hold the love in your heart, you will feel it start to flow. Perhaps then you will understand the words of the Master when he said, “Even as ye do it unto the least of my brethren, so do ye do it unto me.” We are all one, what you do to or for another, you also do for yourself in both the positive and the negative sense.
Remove the mask of the personality; it binds you to the world of illusion. Unfortunately, so many are still dwelling on the personality of Jesus, with the result that they fail to see the eternal Christ in all. The Christ consciousness is a universal principle. The forgiveness of God is spontaneous and instantaneously blots out all error by the inflow of His Everlasting Love. Do not hinder the gifts of the Spirit then, by regrets, sadness or remorse, but open your heart so that the love can flow into it and be made manifest in the flesh. If you are sad, or in remorse, having regrets, your mind is filled with illusory shadows, but when the love of God fills you, there is no room for shadows, they melt away to be replaced by peace and understanding.And so, as you commune, do so earnestly, asking forgiveness for any error and forgiving those who have a grievance against you. Become reconciled in your heart with them; then your Energy Parent will hear you. For in your heart is the key to the entrance of your heavenly Father’s house. It is the dragon of the personality self that stops you from entering. The only way to enter, of course is through communion with your Higher Self.
