Concluded from Part 1
Claude Kelway-Bamber clarifies the inaccuracy of calling ourselves “sinners”, and we’re told that the burning flame will come into expression when it’s needed the most.
“If you are a ray of the sun you cannot mistake yourself for a tallow candle. This is why it is untrue and incorrect to teach men they are “miserable sinners” by birth. The body is not the man; his spirit is of God. However ignorant of the fact a man may be, his soul away in its dim consciousness knows this, and often in an emergency the “spark divine” asserts itself, and the man rises to the great occasion. It has been proved many times…” (1)
I really appreciate the line, “if you are a ray of the sun you cannot mistake yourself for a tallow candle”. For too long we’ve believed in a less-than version of ourselves and given our power away to something we’ve thought was higher or better than us.
Understanding the massive value we possess and the importance of our presence as light bearers and bringers of consciousness to the Earth will see us act on our greater potential and step into an expanded role in awakening humanity.
This is one of the reasons I think that understanding ourselves as God is crucial to our inner and outer development. Grasping that we are the greatest creative entity in existence and that we’ve fashioned lower dimensions of dim consciousness to play around in is liberating and awakens us from the falsehoods of this experience.
Let’s awaken out of the illusion of limitation and inability, and recognize that we’re much more than simple humans experiencing a harsh reality that we can only survive in. We can thrive on this planet if we accept ourselves as powerful spiritual beings, but if we continue to believe in limitation and finiteness, we’ll continue to experience difficulty.
Silver Birch tells us about the necessity to sweep aside the obstacles that stand in our way of recognizing our divinity.
“The Great Spirit is within you. You have a divine heritage and are entitled to all the bounty of the Great Spirit because of your latent divinity and all obstacles and institutions that stand in the way of that fullness must be swept aside. … That is the task to which we have dedicated ourselves. That is the service we strive to perform.” (2)
Recognizing our divinity and helping others awaken to theirs is indeed our mission on this planet. It doesn’t matter where you’ve come from or any “status” you might adopt while you’re here – every person who awakens subconsciously accepts the responsibility to use their enlightenment for the benefit of others.
Thus, we serve others when we awaken. If we practice the divine qualities, we’ll sharpen our ability to be beacons of light for everyone around us and the result will be a lit up planet of fully conscious and motivated people.
Finally, we’re told by a fellow named “Sigwart” about our power and the immense opportunity to grow and serve others the Earth offers.
“A great power lies within every human being, but how few recognize it. I myself comprehend only now how much more I could have done on earth. How differently would I have developed had I but listened more to my inner self! I absorbed as much as I could from the outer world and sucked it up like a bee, but too seldom did I draw from my inner being. Much has escaped me by this negligence.” (3)
We can take inspiration from this quote and do justice to the immense opportunity we have before us. We have the opportunity to anchor the qualities of heaven (instead of hell) on a planet that’s been lost in darkness for ages, and I think it’s important that we recognize this opportunity and start doing what inspires us the most.
For me, writing is the best way to express myself and bring ideas like this to your attention.
If you were led to this, you’re more than likely starting to understand and resonate with the idea of yourself as an inalienable facet of our creator, and presenting this idea with material from spiritual sources feels like the best way for me to be of service.
This planet couldn’t be sustained if everybody started writing, however, and you’re encouraged to find the avenue of service that works for you and stick with it. Follow your dreams, because now’s a better time than any to start our work in a free, uninhibited way.
We need the scientists; engineers; astronauts; we need everybody to do what they’re passionate about doing. Feeling passionate is the key to doing great things.
Understanding our godhood and divinity will help reignite the burning flame of inspiration to change the world and bring us back to our natural, spiritual roots. In a future of infinite inner/outer prosperity and abundance, everyone will be encouraged to follow their hearts and make progress for the betterment of our planet and the vast creation beyond it.
Higher facets of our collective and individual consciousness look upon us with love, and we’re reaching the advanced understanding they possess as we remember the truth of our existence as facets of our infinite and all-loving creator. Eventually, we’ll reach the pure and undistorted realms of Source, but until then, we have a lot of learning to do and a lot of love to feel.
