Principles of Self-Enlightenment

 

Principles of Self-Enlightenment

by WingMakers

Each soul is designed to explore in a physical body new ways of experiencing life, and through this process of discovery to transform to a new level of understanding and expression of its Divine Essence. This Divine Essence is the fullest expression of the soul, and most closely exemplifies the Divine's capabilities therein. 

Divine Essence is the level of capability that was "seeded" within your soul when it was initially conceived by the Divine. Divine Essence is also the natural state of the soul that has removed itself from the controlling aspects of hierarchical belief systems through the activation of its embedded divine imprints. All souls are in various stages of the enlightenment experience, and each soul is destined to achieve the level of Divine Essence as its divine imprints become fully activated. 

The self-enlightenment experience is initiated by the realization that you are capable of direct access to the Divine. This is the realization that the wisdom of the Divine is discovered deep within your own soul. In other words, your body, complete with its biological, mental, and emotional capabilities, is not the repository of your divine imprints. Nor is your mind able to reach out and gather in this liberating information--this glorious freedom to access All That Is. It is your soul that is the harbor of your Divine Essence. And it is your soul that is the instrument of access to the activation of your divine imprints, which allows the enlightenment experience to manifest through the integration of your body, mind, heart, and soul.  

The self-enlightenment experience triggers the realization that perceived reality is the Divine personified in the form of individual preferences. Thus eventually, divine reality and your perception of reality become inseparable as the wind and the air. This confluence is only completely realized through the full enlightenment experience, which is unlike anything known within human experience. 

There have been those upon the Earth who have experienced a shallow breath of wind from this powerful tempest. Some have called it ascension; others have attributed names like illumination, vision, nirvana, and cosmic consciousness. While these experiences are profound by human standards, they are only the initial stirrings of Divine Essence, as it becomes increasingly adept at touching and awakening the remote edges of its existence. What most would define as the ultimate bliss is merely an impression of their Divine Essence whispering to its outposts of form and nudging them to look within to their roots of existence, and to unite with the formless and limitless Divine Intelligence that pervades all.

The full enlightenment experience is far beyond the calibration of the human drama much like the stars in the sky are beyond the touch of Earth. You can observe the stars with your human eyes, but you will never touch them with your human hands. Similarly, you can dimly foresee the full enlightenment experience as a human, but you cannot experience it through being human. It is only accessed through the wholeness of the soul, for it is only in wholeness that the divine imprints and their residual effects of divine perception can be fully experienced. And truly, this level of wholeness is only obtained when the individual consciousness is separated from time and is able to view its existence in timelessness.

Nevertheless, the human stage of existence is essential in facilitating the self-enlightenment experience and causing it to trigger--like a metamorphosis--the integration of the formful identities into Divine Essence. This is the next stage of perception and expression for your soul. It is activated when you design your life based upon principles that are symbolic of the Divine.

As you become increasingly responsive to the Divine, you will gravitate to life principles that symbolically express the formative principles of divine creation. There are wide ranges of expressions that can induce the self-enlightenment experience and liberate the soul from external controls. Inasmuch as these expressions can vary, the intent of the expressions is quite narrowly defined as the intent to expand into a state of integration whereby your conscious self becomes increasingly aligned with your Divine Essence.

The below principles are divine templates of creation. They are designed to help you experience life from the perspective of Divine Essence. They are principles that construct opportunities for the integration of your formless and formful identities. They are bridges through which you--with all aspects of yourself intact--can access the experience of wholeness by perceiving with your Divine Essence.

There are three particular life principles that accelerate the self-enlightenment experience and help to align your perspective with the perspective of Divine Essence.

They are:  

1) Observance of the Divine in all things

2) Nurturance of life

3) Relationship to the universe through gratitude

 When you apply these principles, your life experience reveals a deeper meaning to its apparently random events--both in the universal and personal contexts.

 Observance of the Divine in All Things

 This is the principle that the Divine is present and can be observed everywhere and in all manifestations of life. It is interwoven in all things like a mosaic whose pieces adhere to the same wall, and are thus unified. However, it is not the picture that unifies the mosaic, but the wall upon which its pieces adhere. Similarly, the Divine paints a picture so diverse and apparently unrelated that there appears to be no unification. Yet it is not the outward manifestations that unify, it is the inward center of energy upon which the pieces of diversity are layered that unifies all life.

This centerpiece of energy is the collective storehouse of all life within the universe. It is the Divine which divests itself in all forms through the projection of its Divine Intelligence into all manifestations of life. Thus, Divine Intelligence--acting as an extension of the Divine--is the unifying energy that is the "wall" upon which all the pieces of life's mosaic adhere. Life flows from one divine energy source that links all to All and one to One.

Observance of the Divine in all things is the principle that all manifestations of life convey an expression of All That Is. It does not matter how far the unifying energy has been distorted or perverted; the Divine can be observed. It is the action of perceiving the unification of energy even when the outward manifestations appear random, distorted, unrelated, or chaotic.

When all manifestations of life are genuinely perceived as fragmentary expressions of All That Is, the vibration of equality that underlies all life forms becomes perceptible to you. You realize that life initially emerges as an extension of the Divine, and then, as an individuated energy frequency invested within a form. It vibrates, in its pure, timeless state, precisely the same for all manifestations of life. This is the common ground that all life shares. This is the tone or vibration of equality that can be observed within all life forms that unifies all expressions of diversity to the very foundation of existence. If you are able to look upon any and all forms of life with the outlook of equality, then you are observing the Divine in all things.

While this may seem like an abstract concept, it is actualized through the practice of looking for the outward and inward manifestations of the Divine. In a very real sense, you expect to observe the workings of Divine Intelligence in every facet of your experience. It is the unassailable expectation that everything is in its rightful position, performing its optimal function, and serving its purpose to activate the fullest expression of its life in the present moment. It is the outlook that all life is in a state of optimal realization and experience regardless of condition or circumstance. It is the perception that life is perfect in its expression because it flows from perfection, and that no matter how divergent its manifestations are, all life is an extension of the Divine.

In light of the obvious turmoil and apparent destruction that accompanies life on Earth, this is an outlook or perception that may seem naive. How can life--in all its forms and expressions--be perceived as optimal or perfect? This is the great paradox of life, and it cannot be reconciled with your mental or emotional capabilities. It can only be understood in the context of the soul, which is deathless, limitless, timeless, and sovereign. Paradoxes exist because the human drama is too limited in scope and scale to allow a perception of wholeness to illuminate how the pieces of the puzzle are unified in perfect relation.

The human drama is circumscribed by the dimensions of time and space and the elements of energy and matter. It is played out upon the stages of survival and dysfunctional behavior because of the methods of controlling information and manipulating conditions used by those operating within the hierarchical paradigm. The soul within the human body is largely unexpressed and under-utilized in the human drama, and therefore, life's apparent perversions and imperfections are seen in isolation as impediments to perfection rather than perfection itself.

Life is perfect in its resolve to expand and express an intelligence that is limitless. This is the fundamental purpose of life in all its diverse manifestations. This is the presence of the Divine expressing itself as a vibration of equality that can be observed in all things. Sensory input derived from the human body is limited to frequencies in specific ranges that only convey an echo of this divine vibration. The true frequency is understood only through deliberate and focused contemplation of the equality inherent in all things, and through the ability to penetrate beyond the picture of a thing to the origin of the picture.

These insights stimulate a new sensory system beyond the five senses that rule the human world. These new senses are the outgrowth of divine imprint activation and represent the first stage of the self-enlightenment experience. With this new perceptual ability, you will be capable of sensing not only the presence of the Divine, but also the timeless Divine Essence that is within all life.

Calling forth the divine perceptions of the soul within your own being is the ideal method to access a lasting sensitivity to the divine vibration. This is how you can develop the ability to observe the Divine in all things. It is not only that the Divine is found within every individual manifestation of energy; it is also in itself the wholeness of all life. Thus, this principle calls for an observance of the Divine in all its diverse forms of manifestation, as well as in the wholeness of life itself.

Nurturance of Life

Life, in this definition, is an individual's sovereign reality. It is subjective and impressionable. Life is the wholeness of experience flowing past the individual's field of perception in the dimension of nowness. There is never a closure to life, nor a final chapter written. It is eternal, not only in the abstract sense of never ending or beginning, but also in the real sense that life is ever expanding in order to express Divine Intelligence in all realities within the universe.

Nurturance of life is the principle whereby an individual is in alignment with the natural expansion of intelligence inherent within all life. This alignment enhances the life energy that flows past the individual with the clear intent of gentle support. It is the action of identifying the highest motive in all energy forms and supporting the flow of this energy towards its ultimate expression. In so doing, the action is performed without judgment, analysis, or attachment to outcome. It involves simply nurturing the energy that flows from all manifestations and supporting its expression of life.

This is a departure from the normal perception that nurturing support can only be granted when energy is in alignment with your personal will. When, instead, you view everything in your life as an integrated energy flowing in the expression of expanding intelligence, all life is honored as an extension of the Divine. In this context, there is no energy that is misdirected or unworthy of support and nurturance. While this may seem contrary to the evidence of abusive energy upon the Earth, even energy that is laden with "evil intent" is nevertheless energy that is flowing outward in search of a higher expression.

All forms of energy can be nurtured and supported to their highest expression. This is the fundamental action of this principle. It is greatly facilitated by the intention to perceive the original motive and ultimate expression of life energy as it passes through the individual's sovereign reality.

Energy is an element of life that is so subtly interwoven with form that it is one, in much the same manner as space and time are inextricably linked in union. Energy is a motive. It is intelligent beyond the mind's ability to reason. While it is a force that can be subject to human applications that deny its highest expression, energy is always imbuing life with the motive to expand and evolve.

Life energy is always in a state of becoming. It is never static or regressive in its natural state. You are very capable of nurturing this natural expansion of energy to forge new channels of expression and experience. In fact, it is your primary purpose to expand the life energy that encircles your sovereign reality within physical existence, and to transform it to new levels of expression that more clearly reflect the perspective of Divine Essence.

There are many specific actions that can be taken to nurture life. Each soul is, in a sense, programmed within its divine imprints to transform energy through a tremendous variety of means. Working through your body, your soul is able to collect and store energy and redirect its purpose or application. This transformation of energy can occur on either personal or universal levels of expression. That is, within the sovereign reality of an individual, energy can be transformed to conform to a vision of personal welfare, or aligned with a vision of universal welfare and goodwill.

One of the best methods to transform energy is through one's belief system. All beliefs have energy systems that act like birthing chambers for the manifestation of the belief. Within these energy systems are currents that direct life experience. Your soul is aware of these currents either consciously or unconsciously, and allows them to carry you into the realm of experience that exemplifies your core belief system.

By cultivating beliefs and intentions that expand and transform energy, you are able to engage energy systems that are nurturing to life in all its myriad forms. When your beliefs and intentions are clearly defined as preferred states of being, your energy system is engaged in nowness--not in some future time. Now. The energy system becomes inseparable from your being and woven into your spirit like a thread of light. Clarity of intention is essential to engaging the energy system of the belief, and to allowing the nurturance of life to prevail in all activities.

So again, the nurturance of life is essential to both personal and universal realities within the universe, which contains all the realities that are interlinked like threads of an infinitely expanding fabric. Thus, as you awaken to your creative power to transform energy and enhance it with the clear intent of gentle support, you become a transmitter of the Divine and an architect of a new paradigm based on ever-expanding synthesis.

Relationship to the Universe Through Gratitude

This principle is based on the understanding that the universe represents a collective intelligence that can be personalized as a single Universal Soul. Thus, in this model of inference, there are only two souls in the entire cosmos: the individual soul and the Universal Soul. Inasmuch as the individual is impressionable and constantly changing to adapt to new information, so is the Universal Soul, which is a dynamic and living template of potential energies and experiences that are coherent and as knowable as a friend's personality and behavior.

The Universal Soul is responsive to the individual soul and its beliefs and perceptions. It is like a composite omni-personality that is imbued with Divine Intelligence and responds to the perceptions and belief systems of the individual like a pool of water mirrors the image that overshadows it. Everyone is indeed, at their innermost core, an enlightened soul that can transform themselves into an instrument of Divine Essence. However, this self-enlightenment is dependent on whether the individual chooses to project an image of Divine Essence upon the "mirror" of the Universal Soul, or to project a lesser image that is a distortion of its true state of being.

The principle of relationship to the universe through gratitude is primarily concerned with consciously designing your self-image through an appreciation of the Universal Soul's supportive mirror. In other words, the Universal Soul is a partner in shaping reality's expression in your life. If you choose to project an enlightened image upon the mirror of the Universal Soul, reality gradually becomes an internal process of creation that is increasingly free of external controls and conditions.

This process involves an interchange of supportive energy between the individual and the Universal Soul. This energy is best applied through an appreciation of how perfect and exacting the interchange occurs in every moment of life. If you are aware (or at least interested in having the awareness) of how perfectly the Universal Soul supports your sovereign reality, there is a powerful and natural sense of gratitude that flows from you to the Universal Soul. It is this wellspring of gratitude that opens the channel of support from the Universal Soul to the individual and establishes a collaboration of purpose to transform the individual soul into an expression of Divine Essence.

It is principally gratitude--which arises naturally through appreciation of how the relationship between the individual and the Universal Soul operates--that opens you to connection with your own Divine Essence, and to your eventual transformation into the Divine Essence state of perception and expression. The relationship of the individual with the Universal Soul is essential to cultivate and nurture, because this relationship, more than anything else, determines how accepting each individual is of life's myriad forms and manifestations.

When you accept changes in your sovereign reality as the shifting persona of the Universal Soul, you live in greater harmony with life itself. Life becomes an exchange of energy between you and the Universal Soul that is allowed to play out without judgment, and is experienced without fear. This is the underlying meaning of unconditional love: to experience life in all its manifestations as a single, unified intelligence that responds perfectly to the projected image of each soul.

It is for this reason that when you project gratitude to the Universal Soul, regardless of circumstance or condition, life becomes increasingly supportive in opening you to activate your divine imprints. This feeling of gratitude coupled with the mental concept of appreciation is expressed like an invisible message in all directions and at all times. In this particular context, gratitude to the Universal Soul is the overarching motive behind all forms of expression to which humanity aspires.

Every breath, every word, every touch, every thought, every thing is centered on expressing this sense of gratitude; a gratitude that you are sovereign and supported by a Universal Soul that expresses itself through all forms and manifestations of intelligence with the sole objective of creating the ideal reality to activate your divine imprints and transform your entire being into Divine Essence. It is this specific form of gratitude that accelerates the activation of your divine imprints and their peculiar ability to integrate the disparate components of your body, mind, heart, and soul, and to transform them to the state of perception and expression of Divine Essence.

Time is the primary factor that distorts this otherwise clear connection between the individual and Universal Soul. Time establishes separation of experience and this creates doubt in the Universal Soul’s system of fairness and overarching purpose. In turn, this doubt creates fear that the universe is not a mirror but rather a chaotic, whimsical energy. Time intervenes and creates pockets of despair, hopelessness, and abandonment. However, it is these very "pockets" that often activate the divine imprints of your soul, as they cause you to seek a more intimate and harmonious relationship with the Universal Soul.

When you are aligned with Divine Essence and live from this perspective as part of an ever-unfolding reality, you attract a natural state of harmony. This does not necessarily mean that your life is without problems or discomforts; rather it signifies a perception that there is an integral purpose in what life reveals. In other words, natural harmony perceives that life experience is meaningful to the extent that you are aligned with your Divine Essence, and that your personal reality must flow from this level in order to create lasting joy and inner peace.

Gratitude is an essential facet of love that opens you to acknowledge the role of the Universal Soul and redefine your purpose as a supportive extension of All That IS, rather than the whimsical outreach of fate or the exacting reaction of a mechanical, detached universe. Establishing a relationship with the universe through the outflow of gratitude also attracts life experience that is transformative--experience that is richly devoted to uncovering life's deepest meaning and most formative purpose.

The Emergence of Divine Essence

Through the ongoing application of these life principles, Divine Intelligence increasingly becomes the identity of your soul, and your soul becomes the identity of your being. Thus, identity is transformed, and in the wake of this transformation, Divine Essence unifies your being with your soul, and your soul with Divine Intelligence. It is this unification and shift of identity that is the explicit purpose in expressing the principles of self-enlightenment. If there is any other intention or objective, these principles will remain misunderstood and their catalytic powers will remain dormant.

It is the perspective of Divine Essence that all life is pure love in its fullest expression, and that in this single concept, all life is conceived and forever exists. This becomes the core belief from which all other beliefs arise. And as these beliefs expand outward, this core belief system emerges with a clear intent of supporting a fundamental perspective of observing, nurturing, and appreciating the universe as the divine cradle from which all life is created and evolves.

These life principles are merely symbols represented in words and served to you as a potential recipe to stir awake the embers of light that tirelessly burn within. There are no specific techniques or rituals that are required to invoke the power of these principles. They are simply perspectives. In a real sense, they are intentions that attract experience that expands consciousness. They do not provide quick fixes or instant realizations. They are amplifiers of personal will and intention that clarify how one lives. Their transformative power is contained exclusively in the intent of their application.

Through these principles of self-enlightenment, you can become a master of unlimiting your deeper self. In the past, boundaries were set, secrets were kept, and your light was subdued, simply because external, hierarchical controls created in you fear of the unknown and of the mystical practices of an enlightened being.

Now, if you choose to apply these life principles with proper intent, you have the tools to accelerate the emergence of Divine Essence within you. Thus, you can feel the perspective, insights, and empowered abilities of your Divine Essence to create new realms of possibility and shape them as learning adventures that liberate and expand your consciousness. This is the underlying purpose of these principles and perhaps the best reason to explore them.
