God is spirit. That spirit is the source of life, freedom, harmony, power, and well-being. That spirit and source is within you. It’s not located outside of you somewhere out there; it is inside you. Yes, INSIDE you. Yes, inside YOU. But you have a hard time accepting this because you were given false information about yourself. You were told that you are fundamentally a sinner, and that what’s inside you is corrupt and bad. This is a lie. Jesus never taught this. Your fundamental nature and essence is that spirit and source. That is your true Self. “Sin” is an orientation toward illusion and falsity. In other words, when you are believing the lie that you are bad and corrupt, that is the illusion and falsity!
Who you are deep down is good, beautiful, and powerful. That spirit.. that Self can be trusted… must be trusted. We are not going to get anywhere until you/we start trusting what is within us. You are afraid or doubt what lies deep within you… but what lies deep within you is your salvation and the salvation of the world.
How do we activate this salvation. By turning within and connecting with that spirit dimension within us… by turning to what is real inside us that bubbles up through our deep feelings. That’s how this works. The spirit opens up an awareness in you, and it comes through our deep feelings. Those deep feelings are a different dimension than our daily thoughts and emotions that are continuously changing. The deep feelings I’m talking about are more substantial and powerful. They have a lifting-up quality to them. They are often accompanied by homecoming sensations where you feel connected to and nestled in a sweet, freeing, almost intoxicating, oneness or harmony or beauty. We experience this awareness as an intuitive knowing, tacit understanding, or an implicit awareness.
This kind of intuitive knowing goes like this:
I know it
I don’t know why I know it
I know it as more certain than anything I am certain of
It is inexpressible
This way of knowing is an entirely different way than the mental processes of the brain. You don’t attain this through knowledge. This way of knowing is knit into the essence of your original Self, and your original Self sees the world through this awareness in every moment.
You are unaware of the knowledge you actually possess. There is a part of you that knows something that your mind doesn’t and can’t. You have understanding that your mind is not privileged to.
You know things that you can’t explain. There are times when you feel it. Mostly, you push it away or you’re conflicted about its validity. This is because you have been made to mistrust what is inside you.
Start listening to what lies within you! Trust it! Yes, it feels inexpressible. Express it anyway in your own words! You are not a sinner! What lies deep within you is not corrupt or bad. That whole narrative and mindset is BS! It’s not easy to trust what is within you when you have been led to doubt and mistrust it your whole life. It’s gonna take some moxy on your part. Step out in faith!
