Your Own Personal Portal — 02.13.19

Guiding Thought

The purpose of Life for all beings is to experience happiness, peace, contentment, and safety, Knowing the Oneness and Immortality of the Divine Self. Such knowledge is beyond speech, beyond thought; It is found in the depths of the heart where communion (co-union) with All is reality.  Bring the unifying force within your heart to all people and experiences and thus Know yourself as the happiness, peace, contentment, and safety You Are.

I am stuck on the word “portal” with today’s guiding thoughts. I suspect this is so from other spiritual reading I am engaged with right now. As I understand the word “portal”, it is a structure which can transport you to another place. There are big structures, the human and nature made. The small ones include crystals, beads, cards (tarot and others), etc.

Our own bodies have a portal too. Today I see my heart as this portal which placed between the head and the lower body, the doorway between the ethereal (the Beyond) and the physical. The electrical field of the heart has 40-60 times more amplitude than that of the brain, and the magnetic field of the heart is approximately 5,000 times stronger than that of the brain.  A potent portal indeed!

There are lots of ways to enter this portal of the heart: hands on heart awareness, breath, tapping, breathing with mantra, even the Sign of the Cross.

I wasn’t expecting to go here, but here I am with Christ Consciousness. Since I was raised Catholic, this motion has always been quite unconscious act for me. Structurally, this act opens and closes any ritual, a portal entry and exit. I never really understood or appreciated the portal with this 4 point mudra until I studied acupressure and the metaphysical points associated with this physical act. The Divine enters our hearts in vertical fashion and we extend this out in horizontal fashion, the place where transcendence and incarnation merge.

We go in, connect with the bigger picture and change occurs. We come back out. It is through contemplation I connect with the Divine, and it is through action (back in the world) that I mirror/bring the Divine Heart with me, back to my day to day experiences.

The portal is always available.

    I’m a reasonably self-aware person who has been on the Love-Light path for many decades.

    But I still go back to “square one”.

    Or at least it feels that way. I get to a point that feels far beyond anything I’ve ever encountered, I recognize how advanced I’ve become, I feel like finally I’m understanding in a way that honors the work I’ve done.

    Then I lose it. It crumbles. I don’t have the insights, the peace, the understanding anymore.

    I try to figure out what exactly I did to “get there”, and how I can do it again. Don’t ever let anyone tell you spirituality is not scientific. It’s experimentation and replication. Everyone is their own scientist and guinea pig.

    Currently, I feel like I am back at square one. I know that I’m not, I mean, it’s not like anything has been erased or lost; I’m just working from a new angle.

    I also know that I’ve been here before; I think I’ve used the novel “Flowers for Algernon” to describe what this feels like. Unlike the character in that book, I am not concerned about permanent regression.

    I am content and safe…even if I can’t currently feel my Oneness.

  2. Day 19 Peace – Mary

    If our purpose is to experience happiness, peace, contentment and safety, how do we know when we’ve accomplished our purpose? Is it a one-time thing that we then have for the rest of our lives? Is it a process with different elements or levels of happiness and peace? Is contentment a second place prize compared to happiness? Is contentment the same as compromise? This Guiding Thought left me with more questions than answers. That seems to be more and more true of these Guiding Thoughts the deeper we go into this Journey. Today, I think our purpose is to experience and express LOVE in our lives, the experience of which will likely elicit happiness and peace.
    Again, a quote for which I am unable to post appropriate credit as I don’t know its source:
    “Love is what we are born with. Fear is what we learn. The spiritual journey is the unlearning of fear and prejudices and the acceptance of love back in our hearts. Love is the essential reality and our purpose on earth. “

    The unity of all life is apparent in our hearts, and shows up in our actions. We had a group meeting with 9 people at our house last night. As everyone prepared to leave and the door was opened, we discovered a spider had wondered in on the floor. Not a single person moved to squash the little guy. No indeed the discussion was how to safely move him back outdoors. What a wondrous group moment! We happened to have a spider catcher, and with some gentle help, we were able to safely capture the spider, and release it safely back outside.

    It might seem like a small thing, but I believe reflects our connections to the Oneness of all life, and our awareness of the sacredness of all Life. One for all, and All for One! I am sure the little spider was happy to be back outside, rather than being squished by a thoughtless action.

    Spontaneous kindness and compassion are sure signs of our communion with All, expressions of the Divine Self that lies within us all.
