The Merging

So, my question is.... what is supposed to happen when the two minds merge?

How will we know when it happens?

How do I know it hasn't already happened?

" So, my question is.... what is supposed to happen when the two minds merge? "

You become one with the " Eternal Christ-Conscience " or God-Conscience/Omniscience.


" How will we know when it happens? "

Because You will be fully conscious and aware of the absolute state of the Godhead/Christ Consciousness/Omniscience.


" How do I know it hasn't already happened? "

One cannot live in " Expectation " of the happening of some " Future " event taking place if one seek's to be elightened to the " Christ-Conscience ".

One must must learn to alway's reside in the eternal moment " Now " the reason being that, when one focus's their energy on past or future circumstance's this act is a statement that " something is absent in it's exsistance " so when the mind is focused on anything other than the affair's of the present moment ( i.e future, past event's ) one can never be fully present as part of our internal energy is committed to situation's/circumstance's which are not relevant to the moment " Now ", which is commonly known as " Absent Mindedness " and having said that, this is also where our internal energies will be directed and, as this internal energy is our connection with the Godhead, when part of this energy is not centred or present in the current moment, by doing such one denies the fullness/completeness of God to be with us in the existing moment ( which is just as good or bad as saying God is not with me as You may be able to understand ).

God/Christ-Conscience dwell's in the eternal moment of " Now " so that is where it is best to focus one's energies if one seek's to know the Christ-conscience.

Do please excuse me, I forgot to add that " Meditation " is definitely an asset to one's spiritual alignment and " Merging " as You descibed it in Your blogpost.

The goal is to bring the Mind to a complete resting point as, it is within the stillness of the moment where the Higher-conscience is then allowed to function for us.

As alway's, there is a period of digestion which must take place which is like building the foundation's of one's internal temple in which our Higher-conscience can then reside and flourish in our live's eternally.

For a more precise description of the goal/purpose of meditation, I would choose to substitute the phrase " The Merging of mind's " for " The Yeilding of the physical mind to the eternal knowingness of spirit " which require's a complete submition of all that one percieve's themself and the world around them to be.

Spirit is not born of the way's of the flesh so, divine completeness can only exist when one is liberated from the mind and it's impermanent's.


Peace and Love, Joseph

Thank You, Joseph. (Yes, I recognize and appreciate the Divine in You, too!) I am thankful for the time you took to give me some more input on how I may get closer to what it is I seek. I feel like I'm getting closer. But I recall something someone once said to me when I thought I was humble enough, that once we think we're humble, we've lost it!

Love and Light to You, too!

Sophia said...

Thank you. I'm going to start off with 15 minutes twice a day.

Someone emailed me today and gave me a great idea:

"15 minutes twice a day
sit down
shut up
stop thinking"

The past few nights I've been spending some time before sleep and after sleep in thoughtless states, but not for very long.

I know that by trying to think about what might happen, I'm not in the Now, but is everything going to change when this happens?

I feel like I'm completely willing to let go and surrender to the Spirit. I feel ready for it.

Those are very wise word's You have quoted from Your friend.

Indeed it is the " thought " of there being " A lack of/absence of " spiritual completeness/wholeness which contradict's us so, one must indeed learn to alway's work in Harmony with our mind's, there will only be imperfection for as long as one willing continue's to be attatched to the " Thought " of there being such.

Once one can allow the present moment to simply " Be " without the need for us to judge or evaluate the situation within our mind's then, we are on the path to spiritual perfection.

To be at " perfect peace " within the eternal moment of " Now " is to acknowledge the perfection of all universal life which of coarse is " Spiritual Harmony " and the manifestation of the Higher-conscience.


May Your journey be prosperous, Joseph

Living in the moment allow's our internal energy to stay centred and be present at all time's, one need's to be patient and simply allow spirit to slowly consume our being, just let go/surrender ( as You stated )and simply " know " that spirit is work with and for You in every moment.


You said - " I feel like I'm completely willing to let go and surrender to the Spirit. I feel ready for it. "

I'm sure You will when You feel that Your ready to do such, all You ever needed has alway's and ever been within You, so then may the essence of the eternal heart be realized within You, As in heaven, also upon the earth.

Hi Joseph,

I am thankful to have received much wisdom from some very kind people, and lately it seems like more and more wisdom is being shown/given to me serendipitously by generous visitors such as yourself. Everything seems to be building very quickly, accumulating perhaps... or speeding up.

I don't think I necessarily want to become an ascetic or anything, but I'm wondering how my habits could be getting in the way of this. For instance, I enjoy a lot of interpersonal interaction with some friends I have online. I don't feel I could ever give up those friendships. But to what extent should we give things up in order to submit our egos to the Divine?

You don't have to answer any of my questions if you don't want to - I ask too many of them, I know! I just want everything to be perfect so I can succeed. I don't want to go backwards again.

Sophia,

I think what happens is you begin to visualize old reruns of Star Trek where Spock does his Vulcan Mind-Meld. Either that, or you begin to visualize passages from Douglas R. Hofstadter's "I am a Strange Loop", the ones where he talks about two people sharing one mind; you know, stuff like that.

NinRose said...

I don't think you have to give things up unless they are not serving you in a positive way. Some of the bad feelings we hold onto would be worth letting go, if we could learn how. Old hurts, old ideas that no longer serve our higher good, things like that.

Sophia said...

Don,

It's funny you should mention the Vulcan Mind Meld, as recently I had joked with a friend about that when I thought he was reading my mind.

I am getting more and more evidence through my interactions with people that there is certainly some kind of sharing going on.

Sophia said...

Hi Nin,

I've been letting go of a lot of the emotions that I think were holding me back. They resurface less frequently now. It's funny, but sometimes when I catch myself thinking those old negative thoughts again, I can hear myself in my head saying, "Oh no you don't! Don't you go back to thinking those things again." So it's great to have this self-control.

I didn't want to give up any friends or the wonderful dialogs I have. I just don't know how much sensory deprivation I need to go through in order to make contact. I know about all the wise men that went to live in caves to shut themselves off from the world. I already shut myself off from the world a lot as it is. I'm about as close to a recluse as they come.

Hi there once again sophia,

You said - " to what extent should we give things up in order to submit our egos to the Divine?
"

It does requires " full " submission of the mind/ego identification in order for one to truely walk as a spiritual being and this is the sacrifice that one must be willing to make if devine enlightenment is sought, which is why many master's whom have walked the earth throughout history have become cave-dweller's etc, because it allow's for the mind to be released from it's worldly desire's/attatchment's.



You said - " I enjoy a lot of interpersonal interaction with some friends I have online. I don't feel I could ever give up those friendships. "

I would say from a spiritual perspective, it is not about " Giving Up Our Personal Relationships " at all, but instead it is about " Broadening That Personal Relationship " to an awareness that surpasses the mind's capibility, expanding that relationship to one of a universal nature, where all of creation is our kin and of equal status.



" Living The Infinite Way "

A life lived in complete " Spontaneity " is the life of the spirit, where all word's, action's, and inter-action's are produced within each moment and alway's in perfect propotion, never pre-meditated, pondered or pre-concieved.

Life move's through You, with You and for You if one simply allow's it to be, but this will only ever occur with complete submission of the mind/ego.



As An Example -

We all have at some stage in our live's experienced moment's of Devine inspiration, Enlightening thought's and Revelation's, Contact with " The Otherside " Yes?, Well, this is an eternal function of the spirit which is present in each and every moment, the only thing that stop's one from living this eternal awareness is of coarse the Mind/Ego's evaluational function, which juggle's the incoming Higher communication's and then intertwine's it with other pre-concieved truth's so that by the time that this Higher-Communication has been manifested into the world through action's or word's, it's true spiritual-value has significantly be reduced by the mind so, it can only be perfected when one can surpass requirement of all thought.



Peace be with You throughout Your journey, Love and Light, Joseph

Hi Joseph,

Thanks for stopping in again to offer continuing support.

It's quite impossible for me to give up everything to live in a cave, so I have to find some way to do this while continuing my responsibilities. Is it enough to know that I am not sophia? Can we be enlightened - while passing our time on this earth journey using our ego to get by, but knowing within that we are not the ego, not identifying with it?

If only it were just as easy as speaking the words, "I submit my ego."

I know that everything is equal - I see as much divinity in an ant as I see in myself or other creatures.

I don't know what I need to do, but I feel so close!

Your comments have been very helpful. I have read them a number of times because I want This so bad! But maybe want is another trick of the ego.

Yes, it is enough that one live's with the understanding of spiritual unity and, applies this teaching within there daily live's and activities, as doing such will alway's nuture the eternal seed of universal love and compassion within one's being, as an infant must learn to crawl before it may walk, so too must the process be for those whom seek to know/understand thier spiritual self, it is a simple process of " spiritual growth " and thus we go from strength to strength.

From a spiritual perspective " Life Is One " so, indeed life know's it's need's/requirement's so, this is why certain being's are born with the thirst to seek the Higher Spiritual purpose/fulfillment and become ascended master's, spiritual teacher's/philosopher's, faith healer's, spiritual psychic's/guide's etc because, this is a manifestation of the spirit meeting the requirement's of those whom seek devine unification/knowledge and, the work's/glory of the universal spirit are manifested into the world through these select being's whom have chosen to become vessel's of enlightenment for need of the multitude's.

When highly evolved spiritual being's are born into the physical world their vibration naturally raise's that of the entire physical universe once they have become enlightened in the way of thier spiritual purpose/role which they were born for the purpose of fulfilling here on earth.

The higher vibration's are naturally produced and transmitted by these highly evolved being's and thus are recieved by all those whom seek spiritual truth, this is why we are drawn to certain people, place's and thing's which we find spiritually stimulating, it's a natural inclination for one to seek fulifillment and only " spiritual fulfillment " can truely provide an eternal satisfaction as all physicality is impermanent and the satisfaction's of such, can only ever be temporary.



You said - " I don't know what I need to do, but I feel so close! "

To simply " Be " is enough in itself, when You are at peace within Yourself, You are at peace with the entire universe, then is spirit allowed to work with, through and for You eternally.



Peace and Love, Joseph

Sophia said...

Hi Joseph,

Is that what enlightenment is - living with an understanding of the spiritual Unity of everything?

I, too, feel very drawn to spiritual people.

I hope that more and more good vibrations can be spread across our planet. I want to help in any way I can and at the moment I'm unsure how to go about this, but I've been thinking about it.

Anonymous said...

You said - " Is that what enlightenment is - living with an understanding of the spiritual Unity of everything? "

Yes that is " in part " the truth, the complete understanding of this is that each " Individual " being, inwardly hold's the entirety of the spiritual universe/God-source.

The appearance of the outer physical world is an " illusion " which the mind " only " is bound to however, spirit is of a formless and limitless nature.



You said - " I too, feel very drawn to spiritual people ".

Yes I do understand, the spiritual calling is the most natural accurance possible because we are in truth spiritual being's whom have chosen to experience ourselve's in physical form, in order that we may then come to know our true nature ( that nature being of " love " ) and thus we have chosen to creat a temporary physical environment which is bound by relativity, objectivity and seperation and, within this setting we may thus seek out and create love in many form's ( the spiritual form being the highest of all love's ).



You said - " I hope that more and more good vibrations can be spread across our planet ".

A time is quickly approaching when the spiritual vibration's upon the earth shall be significantly raised indeed and, far more so than it has been throughout recent history so, very shortly You will have that request granted, I do assure You.



You said -" I want to help in any way I can and at the moment I'm unsure how to go about this ".

Strengthen the relationship with Your " inner-self " first and foremost, spirit will then be allowed to work wonder's through You, without You ever having the need to utter a single word to another being.

Remember, spirit is internally unified with all universal life and so, when Your vibration raise's, it directly benifit's all whom are spiritually awake/aware and ready to surpass their immediate realization's.

So having said that, it will be quite natural for You to meet people whom are readily open to communicate these higher truth with You through moment which seem to be rather too coincidental but, this is simply the spontaneous nature of the spirit as " Inwardly " these people already know exactly why it is they have come to meet in these particular situation's and also the knowledge is already instilled within them before they ever met but, these occasion's are simply for the benefit of the " Mind " which seek's the rasional and reasoning until of coarse one is able to surpass the mind's requirement's.

Hi Joseph,

So it isn't just that we each have a spark of divinity in us, we each have all of it? We're not just separate drops of an ocean, each one of us IS the ocean?

Does the time that's coming have something to do with the "Age of Aquarius" or 2012? (I don't know anything about astrology, but I've heard people talking about the AOA, not to mention that now the song is stuck in my head. :)

Is there anything I can do to benefit those who aren't yet spiritually awake or aware, to help raise their vibrations, too? Or will they naturally also be raised along with others?

It seems like we're heading into some exciting times. I can feel the changes.

Much Love and Light to you always!

".

I could not have stated it any better and in fact, I came with the intention of using that exact same analogy in response to Your post, that is until I found that You had beaten me to it, so indeed in our very short period of communication here, much has been realized I must say ( smiles ).



You said - " Does the time that's coming have something to do with the "Age of Aquarius" or 2012? "

Yes it does indeed have great significant with both these quickly approaching time's but, truly I say to You, it is far more productive for Yourself to " Not " allow Your energy to be strayed on these coming event's but instead be centred and present alway's in the immediate moment ( thus allowing spirit to be wholely present in each eternal moment ).



You said - " Is there anything I can do to benefit those who aren't yet spiritually awake or aware, to help raise their vibrations, too? Or will they naturally also be raised along with others? "

Spirit will call all those whom are " willing " to recieve the grace of the spirit/God-source firstly through " Inward revelation " then, these people will be driven to actively seek-out spiritual union in order to quench the spiritual thirst ( which is the greatest/strongest calling in life ).

So, You will never have to actively seek to share Your spiritual wisdom's but rather, seeker's of the light will come to You quite spontaneously as a natural spiritual occurance.

Knower's of the light of truth such as Yourself become the " Spiritual Temple's " of the Godsource so, much like people are drawn to churches and mosque's etc, in like manner they will also be drawn to Yourself and, alway's at the perfect moment in time in which they are ready to recieve certain spiritual truth's through You but, " never before " the reason being that, if the person has not willingly sought these truth's themself then, there heart's may not yet be prepared to recieve such and unfortunately, out of these situation's will only arise conflict of opinion's.

So, I would definitely say that it is best left to the work's of the spirit to spontaneously draw those whom are prepared for the planting of the seed unto You, rather than to pursue it ( life know's it's essential need, and spirit will alway's provide in sufficient and timely propotion ).

" Many Are Called But Few Are Chosen " this spiritual truth is such because, all humanity are called upon at some stage in their live's by the God-source but, few have chosen to heed the calling however, this is the free-will which we each where born with so, we can only show respect for our neighbour's decision as, we can never control their destiny.



You said - " It seems like we're heading into some exciting times. I can feel the changes ".

You will indeed see so many wonder's far greater I say, than Your eye's have ever beheld.

" The time is upon us, even knocking at the door of mankind ".



Peace and Love Eternally, Joseph

Hi Joseph,

I have noticed sometimes that certain spiritual people and I are in sync with each other, hence we start thinking alike, as if we're reading the other's mind. I always use the cliche, "Great minds think alike." (I don't know the specifics, but it becomes quite apparent that we're all sharing a greater mind.) Whatever it is that's happening, it always makes me smile.

There have been a couple, maybe a few, that have emailed me with questions, yet I always feel unprepared to answer their questions because there is so much I don't know, but it makes me hopeful and happy to see some others taking interest.

Thank you for your comments. They have given me fuel for the journey.

I feel very excited!
