The Rosetta Stone of Consciousness

As surprising or confusing it might seem, Jesus’ words, “Love God above all else, and love your neighbor as yourself” are the key to understanding existence of EVERYTHING. It’s not readily understood at a human level, but it is the key that unlocks all the mysteries of existence within this Universe and all Universes. I say this not because I think it is true, but because the very life within these words, rings out this meaning and this awareness. The very vibrations of these words carry forth the effort and desire to unlock not just people’s hearts but their minds to know that which awaits us in our understanding.

What the human race is missing so far, is that these are not just pretty words. Rather practicing these words opens up the step by step approach to understanding and putting together the puzzle that is our self and our relationship to God and the Universe of Universes. We are putting together the puzzle of all things, and these words are the blueprint for finding the pieces, then learning how they fit together. They are not just spelling out how to live in this Earth, nor just how to live in the physical universe. But, they spell out how to discover and open the non-physical dimensions of existence.

These words are the Rosetta Stone of Consciousness and of understanding the realms of existence/consciousness. These words are the primer to help us unlock piece by piece – awareness of all creation – helping us climb the stairs one step at a time to that place where we understand and integrate, and live from this awareness.

With each step on the stairs of understanding, as we practice these words and all teachings that emanate from these words, we gain another piece of the puzzle. That which we learn and practice becomes part of us – part of our flesh and blood in the physical world, and the spiritual world.

This is true, because we exist in both worlds at the same time, whether we are aware of it or not. (Side note: We are spirit beings, for all times, whether we are aware of it or not. We are physical beings only while we inhabit (and are fused to) this body.)

Meditate on His words.

“Astral City: A Spiritual Journey”

I’ve had requests for the title of the movie, “Astral City”, which I mentioned during a recent retreat/conference at which I attended and spoke.  It chronicles the experiences of Andre Luiz, after his death, and also parallels Echo Bodine’s Out-of-Body experience which she writes of in her book, “Echoes of the Soul”.

The movie is taken from the book of the same name written in 1944 by Francisco Cândido Xavier.  The Wikipedia link:  Astral_City:_A_Spiritual_Journey.  The Youtube preview: Astral City: A Spiritual Journey.

I do recommend watching it.

2012 and Beyond: Building a New Paradigm

As to the changes that are coming, as in the fulfilling of time and space (which has been referred to), these will, as indicated, depend upon what individuals and groups do about that they know respecting His will, His purpose with man.” [Edgar Cayce Reading 1602-6]

On April 11 and May 16, 2010, Jodie Senkyrik will be presenting a 2-part workshop series sponsored by the Southwest Region of the Association for Research and Enlightenment, and held at the Red Corral Ranch B & B outside Wimberley, Texas.

We have many expectations and much wonder about what 2012 will bring, and as to what effects we will experience from the influence of this planetary  time. Yet, the consciousness shift associated with this historical time doesn’t so much happen to us, as it does from us and through us.  In this series, we will exam our spiritual, mental and physical evolution, as well as our role in bringing these forth. We will also examine the paradox of realizing that we cannot evolve ourselves, bringing the question “then how do we do it?”

Part 1- April 11,  2010, 1pm – 5:30pm. Einstein said that we cannot solve our problems at the level they were created.  In the same way, we cannot build a new paradigm from our own understanding.  We cannot evolve ourselves.  We grow, build and evolve through that which is new that comes into our awareness and consciousness.   The beginning of our evolution of our understanding of the Spiritual aspect of ourselves is the development of an ongoing relationship to the spiritual aspect of ourselves.  It is the recognition that the world we live in now is two worlds – a physical world where we find our body existing, and a spiritual world that we are growing to believe in and touch, and  discovering coexists together “alongside” the physical, though only recognized through spiritual means.

Part 2 – May 16, 2010, 1pm-5:30pm. In this session, we will explore our mental and physical paradigms, looking for ways to expand our own understanding of what we already “think we know.”  We will explore the role of the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, and 4th chakras, with their relationship to the mind and body.  We will address our current paradigms regarding the physical body and physical world.

We’ll also expand on the importance of what Edgar Cayce calls, “the imaginative forces” and the impact  imagination has on our own transformative evolution.  We will discuss the beliefs regarding the statement, “If we can think it, we can do it.”
**************
Whether working with spiritual, mental or physical paradigms, building new paradigms never destroys the previous paradigms, but expands beyond it when the parameters – the mind – is open and permeable, with the previous paradigm serving only as a beginning for our ever  growing understanding.

Jodie Senkyrik has been a regular presenter for the A.R.E. Southwest Region, since returning in 2001 from California.  His first A.R.E. presentation was just one month after Sept. 11, 2001 with “The Karmic Connection to the 9-11 Attack” outlining the karmic connection of souls’ involvement with this event – on both sides – with the soul and national connections leading back to Atlantis, Rome, the ancient Middle East and more.  He speaks on such subjects as Psychic Ability in Human Beings, Cleaning up Fear, A Psychic View of Love and Death, the Atlantean Hall of Records, the Evolution of the Soul, and more.   Many of his presentations are available for free from the Download Page of this blog.
