I just posted to Michelle how I access TaoGod(I) when I feel more contracted than I like. Try it out and let me know how it goes in the comments: … Read more…

In trying to pin down a more accurate name for I, the EternalI LOVEI AM LOVE, etc., I’ve been spending a lot of time “going in and out” of this level to try to clarify it. In doing so, I’ve been reminded of all the ocean metaphors I’ve used over the years to describe the various phases I’ve been through. … Read more…

IAMLOVE: The Path of Mystical Oneness

This is the nondual, mystical path of IAMLOVE.

It is the opening of the Mind, the Heart, and the Soul.

TaoGodHer (or TaoGodHim) is the Source of all manifest things. He/She is both a process and an intelligence and is experienced intimately.

Semi-Divine is the feeling of the highest state (IAMLOVE).

The Soul level is a crucial component on the path of Mystical Oneness, for it is the Soul which acts as a threshold, uniting the Oneness process of Tao (I AM) with the mystical Intelligence of God (I LOVE).

I LOVE: The Path of Mysticism

This is the traditional, mystical path of I LOVE.

It is the opening of the Heart.

God (one of many names) is the Source of all manifest things. Unlike I AM, this Source is intelligent.

Illumined is the feeling of the highest state (I LOVE).

The Shadow level is often skipped (not given much attention).

Patterns Arising From The Void

At 2:30 this morning, I awoke to a flood of insights—patterns revealed from the Void of sleep.

One insight was about the three paths of awakening and their relationship to each other:

  • The Path of Oneness
  • The Path of Mysticism
  • The Path of Mystical Oneness

Since I want to be able to link to these Paths/Maps in future blog posts, I’ll create separate entries for them momentarily.

A Peek Behind The Curtain

Yesterday’s post demonstrates one of the reasons I continue to blog, and a big reason I’m writing the book: To give readers a “peek behind the curtain” of what it’s like to live with Cosmic Consciousness (the duplex personality, She/We/I, union/communion with the Divine, …).

Yesterday’s post—while still a good example of I LOVE in action—was focused on my non-black-and-white attitude toward hunters. What I didn’t get into was the inner and outer experience of She/We/I in action.Read more…

“I don’t think that’s legal,” he said, referring to the rope and sign I’d strung up across the entrance to my camp: “Campsite Occupied. (Dead End)”.

I didn’t have a leg to stand on, so I told the truth.

“I just got tired off all the trucks driving in here, seeing my rig, and turning around and heading out.”

Neither hunter liked that answer much and gave off the vibe that this was their forest as much as it was mine and wandered down along the stream to kill some ducks. … Read more…

I AM. I LOVE.

I AM: The culmination of the Mind opening.

I LOVE: The culmination of the Heart opening.

I AM: The integration of the Witness with the Witnessed.

I LOVE: The integration of the Mystic with the Divine.

I AM: Mind. Intelligence.

I LOVE: Heart. Emotion.

I AM … I LOVE.

Maybe there’s a connection.

TaoGodHer is Intelligent Love.

And when you think about itYou are Intelligent Love.

TaoGodHer … You.

Maybe there’s a connection there too.

Last night, Michelle told me of how she had asked TaoGodHer for financial assistance and I went to bed with the intention of asking Her to help Michelle out but I fell asleep before I could finish and I had a dream. … Read more…
