Into the Depth of our Being
The Wondrous Journey is Ilie Cioara’s follow up to The Silence of the Mind. It is a practical book on meditation and enlightenment, a must read for any spiritual seeker. A less rational and more poetic Eckhart Tolle; Kahlil Gibran meets Krishnamurti.
His message is original and unique, as Ilie Cioara has never travelled to India and never belonged to any traditional school. By practising the silence of the mind, through an all-encompassing attention, we discover and fulfill our innermost potential of becoming one with the divine spark that lies dormant within us.
is Energy in a permanent process of renewal, unfolding moment to moment. It has no beginning and it will never have an end. It comes from Eternity and it flows, perpetually, towards the same Eternity, in a perfectly harmonious order.
We can also call it Absolute Truth or God; these words define its Essence and content as All there is, in All and Everything, seen or unseen.
As Unique Reality, It is also endowed with creative force, and the Aliveness within us represents the Divine Spark which cannot be conditioned or measured, searched for or evaluated. It exists – purely and simply – as obvious and Unique Reality in a continuous process of evolution.
This Divine Particle – Perfection in Itself – is associated with a physical body and an imperfect mind; It permanently pursues perfection and the return to the Sacred Source where It originated. Destined to experience the association with the relative elements of the physical Universe, the Divine Spark – in moments of existence – comes into contact with “What is not real”, that is, the world of illusions, which disappears spontaneously. In the “psychological void”, It reveals Itself through Itself as Sublime Reality.
Have you ever had a synchronicity? That's when a set of circumstances comes together that looks like a coincidence, but the probabilities of it being just a coincidence seem impossible. I've had synchronicities all my life and when I was younger, I used to think it was an intervention of God, bringing something into my life that was "meant to be."
If you've been reading my articles, you'll be aware that for the past ten years, I've been communicating with interdimensional sources who have identified themselves as the Elohim. They've made the claim that they were the Creators of the physical universe so I decided that perhaps they could explain this mysterious phenonomena of synchronicity.
I would like to shed some light on a subtle but significant idea concerning what I call the “circle of self.” We will examine the secret mechanism in us that drives us through certain unconscious life cycles where, in moments of crisis, we think we are making wise choices, only to realize we have chosen against ourselves once again.
To begin, we must examine two important ideas. First, the most vital moments in our lives occur when we are most conscious of ourselves, when we are fully present to all of the lessons this same moment brings into our awareness. It is in these moments that transformation of self and awareness of self are as one movement.
The second idea is equally important. As a rule these moments in question, where we are enabled to transcend ourselves, occur during those times in our lives when something “unwanted” happens to us. It is for this conflict we feel with life that we are more or less made to become conscious of both the disturbance and ourselves at once.
I was watching a movie the other day with Kevin Costner. You may have seen it yourself. It is called Field of Dreams. To those of you who may not have seen this wonderful movie, I will not spoil it for you; but strongly suggest that you check it out. I have seen this movie in its entirety at least three times and it fills me with the wonder and the magic of faith in an activity or pursuit. Kevin Costner’s character is put through a series of events that tests his faith throughout the entire movie, and yet, he keeps listening to his inner knowing and moves forward undaunted – without ever being sure why he is being told to pursue his various courses of action.
I am reminded of how many times I have failed to stay my course and allow outward appearances to move me from my determined course of action; only to find out too late that had I not deviated, all would have worked in harmony and according to plan. Each time I interfered, I would set myself back ten steps! How many times did I deviate because I could not see the end result of my present actions and opted instead to change course in the middle of my journey. Faith is magic in motion. In those rare times when I have held fast to my faith that my end-result would be exactly as I intended; I was always amazed at the miracles that occurred! People, events, synchronicities, were nothing short of mystical. There is simply no other explanation. Let me share with you an example from my not-to-distant past and the synchronicities that occurred.
Patron Angel of all who work in the field of communications, postal workers, and the clergy
Meaning of the name: “God is my strength”.
Archangel Gabriel is available as a spiritual compass. She will guide you if you ask for divine direction. Be ready to feel her vibration and divine guidance. When you are stuck at ones life’s crossroads or confused on which way to turn, meditate on your desires and your intentions. Be open to receive messenges.
A powerful co creation will take place between you and Archangel Gabriel. Pray for the desire to feel clearly, see clearly, hear clearly, and sense clearly, the information that is being delivered to you. It is important to unstuck your clairs.
Affirm that I can clearly see visions, dreams, symbols, signs and that I understand what the messages mean.
Mediate, pray, and ask your angels to clear what ever is in your way. I strongly suggest Integrated Energy Therapy to help you, with your emotional and physical blockages, as a healing modality.
Once that takes place, it will be easier to interpret the information that Archangel Gabriel is sending you, as well as God, your spirit guides, and the Angelic Realm.
As I have stated before, we are co-creators. There is no deity that decides what you will or will not express or experience in any particular reality – past, present or future. It is always up to you. It is always your choice. But, Universal Laws must be obeyed and they are not subject to change or re-interpretation – just recognition and compliance.
Reality simply is – Universal Law simply is. If we learn to flow with Universal law we live a life of abundance and prosperity of every good thing life has to offer. If we, in our ignorance or stubbornness, flow against Universal Law we live a life of fear, lack and limitation in all degree and manner. It is that simple and yet it is not that simple. The important components of how Universal law works that we need to understand, cultivate, commit to memory, and implement are vibration and resonance = harmonics = cohesive energy patterns = reality experienced. The sages and mystics tell us “as above, so below”. The Creator of the Universe spoke its world into existence. As beings created in the image and likeness of the Creator, we manifest our individual world in this exact same way. First we imagine, visualize or picture that which we desire – then, we claim it. In claiming, we are manifesting – speaking our world and subsequent life experiences into manifestation.
Each human being on planet Earth is – consciously or unconsciously – searching for happiness with unlimited persistence and greed. Happiness appears as a mirage; we try countless ways in order to find it in the external world, with perseverance and determination; nevertheless, each time, the desired happiness finally results in disappointing delusion.
Other, more subjective individuals turn to their inner world; in this case as well, their thirst for happiness is satisfied by sheer deceitful imagination. In each of our attempts to search for it, we start from what we know or imagine. Such happiness is always motivated by an object we anticipate or desire.
True happiness ensues indirectly. It always appears in a state of non-search. Practically, we do not know what happiness is, but, when the mind is completely silent, in a state of total passiveness, our whole being experiences harmony. In this state, as complete beings, integrated into Life, we are overwhelmed with an immense Joy and Happiness without cause.
What must one do if one truly intends to make a new beginning? What is our part in fulfilling this promise of Newness latent but hidden in ourselves? We ask these questions in the spirit of the Newness that we hope for because life has shown us, again and again, that we know not their true answers.
We begin with a short story. It illustrates two spiritual principles we will need to understand with regard to our wish to realize the Ever New Life. Picture in your mind a large mining operation, and just outside the opening to the mine, lined up for quite a ways in front of the paymaster’s table, are a number of people waiting in line to collect their bi-monthly paychecks. Somewhere in the middle of this line stands a man dreaming of the dollars about to come into his hands. As he waits he envisions all the things he will be able to buy with this money, and the imagined treasures and pleasures soon to be his make waiting in line almost too much to bear. At last his turn arrives. He steps up and holds out his hand. But what’s this?
I'm going to share this and give some footnotes which I highly recommend you follow up on. I can't give all the back ups for the info in this article but I can direct you where to do your own research. Some of this information is going to knock your socks off. I don't think you can or should believe it, the first time it's exposed to you.
Many new age groups are talking about moving into a new Golden Age and how the evolution of all humans is upgrading. Some people who channel are saying similar things.
If you've been reading my previous articles in The Messenger, you'll have noted that I am the principal author of The Reincarnation of Edgar Cayce? with David Wilcock. While I was in the middle of writing the book, I found myself in the midst of my own channeling experience with an intelligence that contacted and tracked me through two consecutive personal relationships. This Source identified itself as the Council of Elohim and took credit for the creation of the physical universe. So I had a lot of information accessible to me that was not ordinarily known. I have never been a fan of channelled material. Like who's talking and can you really truust them? It took me 3 years to validate the Sources I was in communication with.
Everything today is about change – the three “ts”: transformation, transmutation and transition. It is funny how we spend much of our time trying not to choose. We somehow think that if we stand still and put our head under the cover, the choice we need to make will go away. As I started to write this article today, I was interrupted by a telephone call that I knew was coming and a decision that would need to be made that I had been putting off and rationalizing. I simply did not want to have to make the decision and so I had been standing still and treading water for some six months. The vibrations on the Planet now are intensified. We are being required to make a firm decision on the direction we wish to take. We are being asked to decide if we are going to move forward in our evolutionary pattern, or if we want to exit the Planet and pass up this unique opportunity that according to some mystics and sages occurs approximately every 26,000 years.
