Here is the whole quote from my latest blog. God Bless.
"True Self is the Immanent Realization of Reality. It is the inherent steady-state of the everlasting conscious existence of God, and IT IS the Immanent Perpetual Conscious Presence of existence. The bodily state of consciousness that perpetually relates to life and existence through the egoic is the current darkness that (apparently) over shadows the Divine Light of Immanent Realization. There must be a clear understanding on Self Realization and the processes that follow that Awakening. In the coming commentary I will break down the apparent process of Self Realization and demonstrate that Actual Self/God Realization Only Manifests in the Immanent Presence of Now, while the processes of whole bodily realization (Awakening the Spiritual Cross) actually take time.
Self Realization is the ground breaking, foundation material that supports a genuine Spiritual process of bodily Realization of the Spiritual Cross. In the whole process of True Life Realization in relation to how the Spiritual Process is taught within Enbrightenment there are four general stages, and the first stage is the ‘non-spiritual’ stage of self inquiry and self wonder, while the following stages are tied up with Self Realization and the subsequent processes that follow throughout the Awakening of the Spiritual Cross. The first stage begins as the coil of inwardness (the self created ‘point of view’ through which self experience seems to take place) takes on a perpetual condition within the experience of the individual’s life. As an infant this self possessed activity of consciousness forms the ego and the body/mind holds onto that self possession until death. In the midst of the individual’s self possession (ego possession) the perpetual Presence of the Transcendent One is inherently, Fully and Perfectly manifesting As existence.
The ego coil is like a whirlpool in the ocean of consciousness, and the ego easily notices all the other ‘whirlpools’, but the conscious experience of the ego coil does not notice the water (everlasting substance of reality) . The true Self of the whirlpool is not the coil of energy in the center of its living experience, rather, the True Self IS the substance of the whole dynamic of the existence of the whirlpool (the whole dynamic of the human condition, involving all experiences of consciousness); It IS the water that provides the environment which is suitable to the whirlpool’s existence. The whirlpools come and go, but the Substance Remains Perpetually Transcendent of the appearances apparently manifesting as modifications of the water. The Perpetual Presence of God’s Realization provides the substance of the existence of All things appearing. That Is the True Seat of Self Realization, and the Free Opportunity to Notice, Acknowledge, and Identify As God’s Realization Is Always an Imminent Realization on the horizon of Faith that God Only Is.
Immanent and Imminent Realization can be explained as follows. If a person is going north, and that person needs to go south, all they have to do is turn around. It does not require them to move, just turn around, the direction of north was immanent in the environment, like south is once the person is going north. In order for the person to begin going south they just need to turn and face south, which is an imminent (and nothing but their self is preventing) opportunity within the environment of the individual. If you want to grow in God you must Turn and Face God, and abandon the living condition of turning away from God; Realize the True Direction we all must Face in Order for God to begin to do Spiritual work in our lives. God’s Immanent Realization is like the body/mind facing north (ego coil – self possession – seeking/sustaining ego identity), all it has to do is simply face south (God), to turn the ‘point of view’ from ignoring the Immanent Presence of God, and/or to turn the body/mind from self possessing and supporting the ego coil of inwardness for the Free and Boundless Transcendent Reality of Everlasting Consciousness. This is the teaching of Immanent Realization is that It Is Always and Perpetually an Imminent Realization Opportunity in every conscious experience an individual has in life.
This bodily conscious Realization does not take time, and True Self/God/Reality Realization just simply needs to be Noticed, Acknowledged and Identified As your Very Own Self. That is an Immediate and Instantaneous, even Spontaneous, Realization. The reason it is like this is because the Realization Is God’s Realization, and It is an Inherent (manifest) Must in order for existence to exist. The Realization leads to the processes of Enbrightenment (whole bodily awakening of the Spiritual Cross). The Truth of Self/God Realization is that IT is not a process like awakening the Spiritual Cross is a process; instead It is more like a Tipping Point within the human conscious condition. It IS Always a Spontaneous Realization (a Freely Available Spontaneous Tipping Point in All moments of life) that you have Already Realized Self/God/Reality. Once the individual has Faithfully turned from facing the ego coil to Facing True God the Processes of whole bodily realization are initiated.
For the individual through which Self Realization has dawned the process is not always an apparent living process. IT (Self Realization) may seem like something in the background, and the correlated processes are just chugging along, not much action seemly associated with the actual bodily conscious processes that follow Self Realization, the Spiritual Cross may not seem Very Apparent at this point. The truth is that the ego coil, the conscious experience of inward self, is the activity that requires the Spiritual Processes that purge the old habits of the ego coil of consciousness from the conscious living experience of the individual. Just because the body/mind has Realized Self does not mean the process is finished, or has run a complete path. That is far from truth, and the person that has Just Realized Self is Just Now beginning the Spiritual Process.
The constant struggle of the ego coil is still happening, and although the body/mind practices Not-Identifying (via Self Realization) as that conscious activity, it still persists as a reoccurring conscious activity. With the Dawning of Self Realization the individual’s spiritual life needs the discipline of practicing in the company of a Realizer. Although, the individual Is a Direct Source, the Realizer provides a Living Demonstration of the fulfillment of the bodily process of Transfiguration through the Divine One. Thus, that One also Demonstrates the Steady-Stable-State of Self Realization that results from the process of Awakening the Spiritual Cross. The Guru Is a Living Precedent of the Fulfilling of the Process of Enbrightenment, and with the bodily Communing Fires of Transfiguration, and within that devotional practice to the Guru, whole bodily realization enters God-speed. This Realization of being the Direct Source comes with the Immanent Realization, and that always Supports the body/mind’s conscious disposition, and substantiating an ever-present (Imminent) opportunity to freely transcend the ego coil moment to moment. Only after the True Self has Dawned in the individual’s bodily conscious state can that one use the Opportunity of the Guru in the True Way of bodily Communion. That is an opportunity that should not be passed up, instead, the Opportunity of Truly Seeing Value in the Guru comes to Light in the individual As the bodily processes associated with the Immanent Realization of God manifesting As the conscious Source of the body/mind progress.
Up to the time of Self Realization the person was wondering through the clouds and always relating to life in a contracted darkened way, with the breath (sphere) of the conscious experience of the body/mind not extending beyond the next personal experience. It is like walking around in dense fog your whole life, and while things seem to come and go in the fog, you apparently last and form all sorts of conscious relationships with those experiences. The identity that forms from these experiences is unnecessary, and it is formed because the body/mind is not Self Realized. With Self Realization comes the Transcendental support of not attaching to the boundaries and limitations of the body/mind. The conscious experiences of every person are Transcendentally supported, perpetually, by God’s Immanent Realization. Therefore, with the Dawning of Self Realization comes the Dawning of the bodily Process of completely, through and through, Awakening the Spiritual Cross, which in itself is Evidence of Self Realization. Both Self Realization and the Enbrightenment processes support each other, and each one is Evidence for the other. God Is Perpetually Freely Available As an Instant and Imminent Realization, which in turn supports the Divine Process of whole bodily Transfiguration. God Bless."
