Sacred - honoring the Divine nature of Life and God within all things. The Work consists of bringing the mundane into sacredness. An ordinary living becomes an extraordinary life, when lived as sacred.
Savior Complex - a common illusion held by many on a spiritual path who believe that there are those who need "saving" and undertake to do so.
Self-Love - the way you come into Self-Realization as God, which you are. Learning to love every aspect of yourself and humanity is probably the most challenging task of becoming enlightened. It takes complete transformation of the ego-self to Love. Any aspects of the ego-self left unloved keep you bound to the inner and outer drama.
Self-Realization - the awareness of our complete and indivisible union with God, which we are. This also means that the ego-self has come to know itself so clearly, so lovingly, so wisely that it is no longer run by the Shadow. When one is in the Illumined State or Self-Realized, there ceases to be any more inner or outer drama. The personal ego-self has surrendered fully and willingly into the loving embrace of the Soul. (see Shadow)
Serene Center of Your Being within Your Heart - this is the "place" where you connect with your Soul. Your Soul resides here within you. It is a "place" of utter peace and tranquility. It is a "place without space" as it is not limited by, or to, time and space.
Seven Theaters - a basic description of seven planes
within the Inner Planes. Imagine
yourself in a movie complex which has seven theaters with a different
movie in each theater. All are running simultaneously all the
THEATER TWO - The Soul
THEATER THREE - The Divine Father
THEATER FOUR - The Divine Mother
THEATER FIVE - The Original Impulse of Creation
THEATER SIX - The Out-Breath of God
THEATER SEVEN - The In-Breath of God
Shadow - all our negative thoughts, feelings, words, and actions, both covert and overt. It is our unfinished Mommy/Daddy business and what runs us 24 hours a day. It is all the negative imprinting from our childhood that we carry with us into adulthood. From the Watcher's perspective, the Shadow is the Doorway to our Illumined State or Self-Realization. (see Doorway to Illumination, Self-Realization, Watcher)
Shame - the feeling of being flawed and diminished and never measuring up. This is known as toxic shame because it is a constant in your life, causing you to feel defective and unworthy of love. The root of this is generally found in childhood, growing up in a shaming family. For example, your father said: "you are stupid." This conveys the idea that there is something bad about you that can never be changed.
Silence, The - sitting silently within the Serene Center of your Being within your Heart; observing any thoughts or feelings that occur. Not engaging those thoughts or feelings, but bringing them into the Heart, and continuing to practice being the Watcher/Soul. (see Soul, Watcher)
Soul - the medium through which the Divine (God) makes Itself, Himself, Herself known to us; the personal/ impersonal connection to God; your eternal Being. It acts as a transformer: stepping down the Divine vibration to a vibrational frequency compatible with human consciousness.
Soul Agreements - these are, quite literally, agreements made within each Soul and between Souls, usually prior to incarnation. These then, play themselves out in the form of dramas, Divine Setups, coincidences, synchronicities, occurrences, "accidents", and so forth. The Soul actually chooses these "happenings" to occur so that the ego-self can experience life. Thereby, the "happenings" are imprinted upon the Soul fragment for clearing at a later time. The Soul is a continuum of energy which is fearless, deathless, and committed to change. Every relationship you have, no matter how large, small, long, or short, is a Soul agreement playing itself out. Soul agreements can only be changed or new Soul agreements made by an Illumined Being: one who is Self-Realized.
Soul Fragment - these are "lines" of energy that descend from the Oversoul into the present embodiment. Soul fragments anchor in the embodiment and have identities as you and me. They are also energies such as Christ Consciousness and Buddhic Awareness. Soul fragments are imprinted (like a hand print in soft clay) with all the experiences of earthly life for clearing at a later time.
Soul Infused - that which carries the energy of Soul Awareness within itself. All of the four lower bodies, (physical, emotional, mental, and spiritual) are destined to become completely Soul infused, if that is your choice. As one moves in Conscious Awareness as Soul, all the thoughts, feelings, actions, creations, and mundane "doings" of everyday life become Soul infused, sacred.
Soul Perspective - the Big picture, Love, the "Isness," Neutrality. The Soul perspective is seeing things as the Soul sees them. The Soul is The Watcher of all drama, separation, death, birth and the ego. The Soul is not effected by these earth plane illusions. The Soul does not hold any of these earth plane illusions within itself. It knows the Continuum of Consciousness, Being, Effortlessness, Love, Oneness, Joy, Peace, Divinity, God, Eternity and much more.
Spirit Into Form - when that which is formless (pure Spirit) manifests into form. For example: creative process; taking an inspiration and creating a book, writing a song, etc Making the mundane Sacred--to do this, you must bring Spirit into form.
Spiritual Arrogance - applies to one who believes that he or she is spiritually superior to another. In reality, this person is really coming from a place of inferiority and needs to boost his or her ego.
Spiritual Body - the subtle energy body that is of the highest vibration of the 4 lower bodies. It holds the desires and inclinations of spiritual matters. The ego is fully resident here. (see Bodies, Lower Bodies)
Spiritual Muscle - is the ability to "hold" a Soul-centered Consciousness for a duration of time. This "muscle" is developed over time by doing the Practices, the Work, moving in Consciousness, exercising your physical body with regularity, expressing your feelings, and having the persistence and patience to practice (and speak) your truth 24 hours a day, unceasingly.
JOY is the FEELING aspect of Love!
LOVE is Light!
Surrender - Step 1 of the 4 Step Process to manifest Spirit into Form. This is a Conscious act. The ego must step aside before Surrender can occur. Invite the ego to rest in the Serene Center of your Being within your Heart. You will feel the mind, the emotions, and the body become quiet. This quietness is the sign that Surrender has begun. (see 4 Step Process to Manifestation)
Sword of Truth - a metaphor for wielding Love as a sword. Using it to sever lines of negative attachment to parental patterns, rules, admonitions, other people, and situations that keep us from living in the Truth of our Being.
Symbols - from the Soul Perspective everything happening within us and in front of us is a series of symbols that only the Soul can interpret. Our practice is to ask Soul unceasingly to give us the Divine interpretation of all the symbols in our lives. Some of the most challenging symbols are found within ourselves in the form of the Shadow. (see Shadow)
