Distribution of consciousness

JANU: Conscious union, our brother, suggests a perception that one consciousness is separate from another, the human from the True Nature. A limited point of view. The oneness of this reality indicates something different. What we are talking about here is the distribution of awareness throughout the being, which in truth is the True Nature. What you are seeking here is a modification of the distribution of consciousness throughout the being, of which the veil plays a role although a limited one. Human history is rife with those who have sought some form of this, but limited by human identity and convention. Let us encourage this true union of consciousness. The one who has said that ‘there is only you’ was quite correct, but the ‘you’ referred to is much more complete, larger than the human identity and distribution of consciousness. Identity expansion is a difficult concept for many but it is part of the path of awakening. The human perspective is a valid one but can be expanded greatly to include subtler realities of…

Communication and intimacy

JANU: Let us say that to communicate there needs to be a common ground in consciousness, in understanding, in willingness to listen and to speak. How does one communicate, then, from the human perspective and experience with the larger life, the larger reality of your own being? It starts with desire, our brother, and growing respect for its potential. Communication has form, to varying degrees. Some are gross, some are subtle, and some yet to be discovered. Direct knowing is one, and intimacy in communication beyond questions and answers, sometimes beyond words. A mother’s intuition, a parent’s intuition touches on this, but then fear can kick in, if you will, which modifies the knowing. Communication with your True Nature is the subtlest of them all, but it’s the window to the rest of life. And that takes profound peace and love of your own being. The model for this experience can be applied to communication with any part of life. What is true intimacy, then, but oneness, true connection without any judgment. True peace and…

Exploring identity and beyond

JANU: We are coming together at this time in agreement with the elements of our being to begin the journey. Sorrowful for some, for it leaves the comfort and the solitary existence of limited consciousness. When asking, seeking, desiring a larger life, a certain growing maturity is useful. The identity of some is described by the smaller life. Reaching for something larger brings a discomfort to some not wanting to trade what they know for what they don’t know. Know this, our brother: it is not a trade. It is an expansion of current awareness. It returns us to the curious dilemma of identity, the ‘who are you and who are you not’ confusion. There is no final answer to that, our brother, that puts your life in a container of borders. So, identity is a transitional perspective from being identified with only part of life to all of it, to where identity has less and less meaning. The term ‘identity’ is defined by limitation. See the larger life, the larger experience as a greater…

Destiny’s call to humanity

JANU: Enormous is the call to all of humanity to assemble in consciousness, embracing the next phase of its journey in the larger life. What is in store, our brother, is freedom from cycles of the path without understanding. Choices remain but choices with a benefit of insight and the growing wisdom of each other. What is calling is the destiny of humanity, its own destiny, not some arbitrary outside force but its own calling. The journey of humanity is not isolated in the larger life but part of it and the destiny of one culture touches that of another, and another. So, in the larger sense, the call for humanity is larger than that. So, hold the ideal, you see, that humanity become conscious of its own destiny, which is part of the flow of life. Peace and freedom and a love for life known by the True Natures of everyone. Namaste.

All are created equally

JANU: We are assembling at this time the notion that all are created equal. For some, this is meant to be in the eyes of the law of the land. For others, of equal value or love in the presence of the Divine, of what is called ‘God.’ In a deeper sense, our brother, we are not talking about incarnate life but spiritual existence, True Nature if you will. And all are created equally. The accumulation of experience and understanding and wisdom varies but is shared by all, for there is no life separate from the rest of life, you see. Once again, each one unique yet one. What we all have in common is each other. Individual, unique, but connected deeply. The foundation for this understanding lies within the True Nature, no matter the species, or the world, or the plane of existence. The differences are the variations that give strength, depth, dimension, and infinite purpose to Life itself. So, when we speak of being loved, and loving oneself, it is a natural experience…

Peaceful awakening

JANU: We are encouraging, then, the performance of what some would call futile attempts to embrace the larger life. Futility, our brother, only speaks of frustration and impatience and negativity. Embracing the larger life is natural and normal and a process that takes patience, courage, commitment, and a love of discovery with gratitude for every opportunity. Setting goals for awakening limits the process. The conscious human psyche by way of the veil cannot see the larger picture yet, you see. New Year’s resolutions often fail for they are long range, you see. So commitment to awakening and its realization is in the moment, not measured by time. Peace is the theme here, not frustration or disappointment promoted by artificial measurements, signposts, deadlines, rate of progress. Be grateful for the awareness that you have and more will come. Acknowledge there is more to life than you currently know and love it into your life. Inspiring others by example does not mean demonstrating miraculous behavior and knowledge, but by living peacefully and meeting challenges harmoniously. Enjoy the…

Patterns and cycles

JANU: We are patterning into what proves to be another stage of development, forecasting the future based on patterns of the presence and inherent potential. We would say this as archetypical in the foundation laid for understanding the nature of this. Let us begin by shaping this pattern of understanding with the portrayal, a scenario if you will. It is easy to predict the next heartbeat, for there is a pattern and a potential and the conditions for such. This includes a train of thought. It includes any repeating pattern, whether modified or not. It includes our next journey. All of these potential patterns repeating, developing, evolving, are subject to the existence of others, for everything impinges upon everything. No pattern of living exists in a vacuum, so to speak. So observe life’s cycles of repeating patterns, no matter the time changes, fluctuations, and repetitiveness. Some pattern cycles are larger than a sojourn, even the creation of the universe. So be aware of your thought patterns, emotional patterns, behavioral patterns in this way. Some events…

Conscious Union and the Middle Way

JANU:    As you are experiencing, being conscious of the presence of another, whether incarnate or not, lets you experience the nature of their life, their existence, and their consciousness. It takes patience and tolerance, compassion, and a willingness to allow them their privacy and their own way of pursuing life. But compassion remains, without judgement but open to encouragement. Sensing the presence of another is more than just being aware of their existence, but the flavor of their existence, you see, the nature of it and their perspective. There is a balance in observing the life of another without judgement, allowing without interference, service without interference, understanding without interference, respecting the integrity of their own existence, holding them in the embrace of the Life that loves them. Your own True Nature, our brother, has these protocols, if you will, in its relationship with your human consciousness. Conscious union is like shaking hands across the veil, coming to terms with mutual agreement, bringing peace to the challenges of living. Accomplishing this expands this reality for…

More on conscious union

JANU: The range of human experience in conscious union with their True Natures demonstrates many variations, from unconscious to conscious, from occasional to continuous. Much of this exists from human discipline and desire, but much more exists from what resides in the totality of the being. Many have the richness of experience of not only many lifetimes but a rich journey between them. The promptings of the True Nature play a role in this, you see. The challenges and opportunities in living incarnate trigger these responses, for the True Nature, you see, is always conscious, for your incarnate existence is a part of that consciousness. Conscious union is part of the path of awakening, not to be seen as abnormal but uncommon, a natural part of life, bringing peace to the confusion of ignorance. Yes, this is a private journey yet still connected to, at one with, the rest of life. Conscious union is allowing your identity as a human being to expand to include all that you are, and all that you can be….

Successful living

JANU: We recognize the need for prolonged understanding of the true nature of life. Now, beginning life successfully is a function of consciousness. And what do we mean by successfully, you ask. We mean embracing and realizing potential, and potential is fluid, not fixed in any way. The middle way we referred to previously is a beginning. This is a tradition of the evolution of consciousness well-established. Embracing the middle way includes creativity, which includes recycling, which includes evolving any realization of potential or creation and adding more to what has been, and still is. We of the Brotherhood of Light have long agreed with this and embrace even more. These are steppingstones which lead to that which is more akin to Life. The human journey has much more potential than most realize. Unlimited, unrestricted perception, awareness and experience are part of successful living. Merging the human consciousness with that of the True Nature is an ongoing journey of self-realization. All that you see around you outwardly has reality as its source. The middle way, you…
