-- Original Innocence--
In No Cence
In No Sense
Are we Born(e)
Then from this we're torn,
And so begins the Earthly Sojourn.
from Shackled Gods Vol.I by Tobias L.
"In our preoccupation with Original Sin we have lost sight of what will really save our souls, Original Innocence"--The Pope speaking to St.Francis in the movie "Brother Sun, Sister Moon".
"...and the ferocious bear shall play with his toes..."
Being Innocent is not really a sought after quality in current human civilization, except in the sense of getting off in a criminal case. We're not so concerned with actual innocence or guilt but whether we "got off", got acquitted. There from the phrase "plausible denial" i.e. believable lying, will the jury/court buy it.
Being innocent of motive, of manipulation, of calculation of trying to look good, of trying to get one over on others, is mostly considered naive in today's world. A politician that would actually tell the "whole truth and nothing but the truth" would never get elected most pundits agree. They would be considered too naive to be able to be the leader of a country. Our collective consciousness thinks that a leader needs to be tough, savvy, able to be a tough negotiator, "speak softly and carry a big stick". Can you imagine the President of the U.S. breaking down and crying during a press conference? Very likely that would scare most of us and we would probably think that he's not strong enough/"tough" enough for the job. That's how deep the collective programming against innocence/open emotions has penetrated all of us. We are so addicted to stoic, emotionless Father figures, we are barely beginning to imagine a woman president. Could you imagine a president with long hair, wearing a robe, open toed shoes, speaking gently, openly, strongly about your personal journey home to God? Be honest with your responses inside yourself and see how deep the collective programming is. What I just described was Jesus being president of our nation. In a nation that the fundamentalist religionist "Christians" claim as a "Christian Nation" they could never accept Jesus as their president if he showed up physically. He wouldn't fit the image, he'd be too "soft" and not willing to push the buttons and send young boys off to war. It's just shows us how deep the programming about forms is, how things "should" look. Yet if we ask each other most of us agree that "it's what's on the inside that counts". This is the Gap between what our Hearts know is real, or should be real and what is really happening. Closing this Gap will heal us and the earth.
Being emotionally open and honest is most often considered to be a weakness. Strategy and "getting one over" on the other country/person/ business is honored in our current collective consciousness, the collective consciousness of war/competition/control/ domination/ winning. Openness of heart, absence of motive to control or win over others is simply considered naive.
But what about Jesus' saying "Unless you become as little children you will not enter the Kingdom of Heaven." . How can the quality of Innocence of children's hearts be like the kingdom of Heaven?, the entry key to Heaven?
Many of us have had instances where we know divine intervention saved/helped/assisted our children and us. Car accidents we walked away from, near misses, falls, etc. I remember as a six year old in the park behind where we lived falling out of a tree. On the way down a thick branch hit me under the chin and flipped me over backwards before I landed on the ground. My friend came over and I got up laughing, completely unscathed! We thought the fall was "cool", like the comic book characters we loved imagining being. Interestingly there were no adults around to see my fall. Their thought patterns and beliefs very likely could have created all kinds of broken bones for me. As an adult this would probably have snapped my neck or at least broken my jaw because that's "reality".
Another time as kids we would ride our bikes down a hill by our summer house and then we would be "shot" by one of us and we would stretch our arms out and let the bicycle drive off into the ditch and we would fall with complete abandon wherever we and the bicycle would land. We never got hurt. The handlebars never hurt us, the pedals never jabbed our ribs, our hands were never caught in the spokes. At one point one of the neighbors came rushing out, because part of the game was of course to play dead, and he saw one of us lying still in the ditch. He was sure we were seriously hurt and was about to call for an ambulance. We laughed and thought it was wonderful that we were creating such realistic falls.
There are Angels whose bliss, whose raison d'etre, reason for being, is to assist us humans. They are automatically called in to action and able to reach us when we are in the space of Innocence. The space of innocence is the magnetic pull, the activator blip on the angels messaging board that instantly attracts them to the place/person that is in the innocent space. The space of innocence, the vibration of innocence allows in the miraculous, because in innocence the "miraculous" is totally believable. When children play, the wicked queen imprisons the princess in chains in a dungeon that's impossible to escape, but then the magic flying dragon breathes the fire breath that melts the stones and chains and doesn't hurt the princess and takes her away to the castle in the sky with her prince waiting for her. Absolutely impossible by the "laws" of physics, by "rational" thought, it's fairy land, imaginary friends, naive, unrealistic etc.
Recently I filmed a baptism for a young couple. Later at the house they had a small celebration in honor of the event. One of the gifts to the newly baptized baby was a book full of nursery rhymes and children's stories. The five year old daughter of one of the couple's friends excitedly started telling the gathered parents about how she and her friends did the "Ring around the rosie" rhyme. She was all excited about sharing this creative adaption of the rhyme her and her friends had come up with and had lots of fun with. She beamed innocence, play and creative sharing as she shared with us adults, "We say it:
Ring around the rosie, ring around the rosie, Aw Shit, Aw Shit, we all fall down." (of course it's supposed to be "ashes, ashes, we all fall down".)
She was completely innocent, sharing joy, play, fun. But at the moment of saying that "bad" word the adults judged it as wrong and she was shut off. "Well, we don't need to hear that now" said one woman. Her mother explained embarrassed to the other adults that she had never heard her daughter say that before and couldn't imagine where she would have heard that. In her world this was innocent play. She was in the space before the "knowledge of good and evil". But now the adults would teach her what was "right and wrong" and her education into the world of adulthood would begin.
A few years ago Jesus came in spirit and explained to a friend of mine and I about Wise Innocence, about Mature Innocence. He talked about how when we are children we are given a "freebie", an automatic start in innocence in each new lifetime. Then this is lost mostly as we join the adult world of hard work, serious problems, money, survival, right and wrong etc. He talked about how after seeing the "evil" in the world, seeing the betrayal, the manipulation, the fear, the struggle for survival, the heartlessness, to then still choose to open our hearts back up to being innocent, but wise innocence this time. The difference between this reawakened savvy/wise innocence and the child's naiveté` is that in this reborn "second" innocence we are listening with our intuition and know when to share, when to open our hearts with others and the world and when not to. We know that we may be made fun of, may be considered "naive", but we are "crazy like a fox", or "wise as serpents and gentle as doves". In the example of the little girl sharing her nursery rhyme, we now know when we can safely open our hearts without being shut down in a way that will damage/hurt us. We may still be judged but not in a situation where we can't handle it. He said also that this Wise Innocence will make our lives worth living again, will have us open back up to Joy, to Fun, to being able to play with each other as adults. This Innocence will literally bring back in the life force and keep us physically young by being "young at heart".
Innocence as Protection
Innocence literally magnetizes the angels to surround us. To walk before us, behind us, above us, and below us. It is spiritual physics. When you enter the space of innocence, the forces of the Universe click in and support you. The vibratory rate of Innocence unlocks the keys to dimensions. This is why children still see the other dimensions, the devic kingdom, the fairies, gnomes, Pan, departed Grandma etc. If you insist on explaining this space to the Mind, the rational, logical, then it can lock you into it's rules of logic, cause and effect. This is why you can't tell others sometimes what you're experiencing, it simply makes "no sense" to the world of cause and effect. One of the traps of spiritual teachers and helpers is to try to explain this Grace-Space, Innocence, Love continually to logical minds that have no real intention of trying to wake up to it. This has been one of my personal Achilles heels.
You can become "invisible" by entering the space of Innocence. The space opens up gateways to other dimensions and you can step through these to "pop" out of the dimension where the danger is. You can also freeze time and come back later. Once in a business meeting a partner and I felt/"saw" a dimensional doorway appear in the corner of the room. Later we asked what this was and Spirit explained to us that we could spiritually walk through this doorway and we would have unlimited time available in the "no-time space" to figure out what to say in the meeting. This way we could have plenty of time to feel through what the appropriate action would be in the meeting.
The Emperors Have No Clothes
Innocence doesn't blindly follow tradition. It automatically breaks old rules, taboos. It's very nature is "no boundaries". Innocence speaks up with what it feels and sees and this speaking its' truth changes, trans-forms the situation. It speaks out loud what no one else dares to say, or is even allowing themselves to think. This stirs up, shakes up the stuck realities that we walk around in, that is our Cult-ure. Every culture is a Cult. Every culture has unspoken rules. The vibration of Innocence exists outside of rules, outside of culture. It is the little child pointing at the emperors in our lives and saying "they have no clothes" they aren't that important, they aren't really true, they aren't really in control of us. That's one of the reasons we love being around kids, they are still thinking and feeling spontaneously, "out of the mouth of babes" comes simple Truth. I can still remember the day I first realized that I didn't have to answer the telephone, that it was there to serve me and not the other way around. Or the day I realized that I didn't have to take every client that came along. My white Protestant upbringing had programmed into me that I had to be available for everyone that came my way if I wanted to be a "good person". These may seem obvious now but at the time they were huge openings of new vistas of freedom and I know there are other ideas/concepts/beliefs I have that will come undone. We all have the power, the right, the sovereignty to choose where and how to spend our energy and time. And there seems to be layers, new levels of applying this freedom
The life force activating organic life, a butterfly birth, what do you see?
Here's an exercise that will help activate your energies.
Alchemy Activation Exercise
This is an exercise you can do with a lover or close heart friend. This will activate the energies in your body.
The key to this is a loving heart ( isn't everything), having a feeling of love and appreciation for the other person. If you are with your lover you need to get "current" with each other before doing this exercise. By "current" I mean tell each other truth fully and any resentments, hurts, annoyances, you have with each other and clear them up so that you can be present in the moment i.e. "current", be in the current moment. The current of Life, Love, Energy is what we are accessing with this exercise, letting this "Current" of Life of the Moment flow through us.
Stand facing each other in a hug, a loose hug, with your bellies touching each other, close your eyes, focus on your inner connection to God, to your feeling of Love. Stand with your spines comfortably erect, feel the center of the Earth through the bottom of your feet, feel heaven connecting with you through the top of your head, relax, become porous, open, let the energy of Life spin and whirl in your belly, let this energy move back and forth between the two of you, let the energy do what it does, keep your love for each other going. Ask in your heart that God be present, relax, let your energy flow to the other person, and back to you and at the same time the energy will rise up in you. Nuzzle, be close, be loving, sweet, laugh if you want to, have fun, this is play.
If you do this exercise with love you will find that a heat will develop in your bellies, in your hearts, in your hands. Be patient, let it come, it's like inviting a wild animal to come and trust to feed from you. Let this hea(r)t start moving all in you and around you. If you are with your lover, kissing will complete this Circle of Fire and God only knows how far you can take it, you could probably completely activate your energies and transform your whole body into a new one. Let the Circle of Love, of Fire, of Energy move in you. Stay inward/outward, being aware and inner centered with your heart and connection to God/Love/Energy and aware of being with the other. After a while it will take over by itself and there is no "work", no "effort" involved with this exercise, it is a relaxing into, allowing it to happen. You may find that you get dizzy doing this, that you start spinning out of your bodies, that your soul/spirit will start to rise up. That's OK, it's a sign that it's working, and do with it what you wish. If you focus on staying in the body you will be incarnating the spirit more fully in you here and now in the physical, you will transform your cells literally, you will begin to activate (what scientists have called) your "junk" DNA. This is an easy way of allowing the Intelligence of the Creator to come in and "reformat", re-align, your energy. It will also make you feel all warm and loved inside. Enjoy!
There are many ways of course to activate our energies in our selves and bodies, this is just one way that is easy fun, loving and can be done anywhere. You can be at the airport and having a long farewell with your mate and you will both lighten and energize, fill each other. Nobody will know, they'll just think you are lovers--which is true! You, your lover and God all mixing together, what could be better...you two loving each other feeds the planet, feeds the universe, the angels get all excited, nature sings, the stars rejoice, it's better than chocolate cake!
Tobias-Right now I feel the energy entering the top of my head. I feel it activating my forehead, the back of my skull and neck. I can also feel it in my creative chakra as a relaxation, a melting. I am interested in learning how to create by intention from inside this space of comfort, of "being taken care of" that I feel right now. That's really how I want to live. By the way, what shall I call you?
Guides-(they felt like beings that guide and assist us) "It doesn't really matter if you call us anything, we don't use names in the space we exist/operate from or with each other. We know each other by the energy we are, our vibrational "soulprints". We envelop you, lay onto you layers of activating energy, to encourage, to enlarge, activate the energy that you have inside you, that God energy that is in your core. We would really like to see it turn into a flame, a pillar of fire and "consume" the old you and ascend, liberate all your energies that feel trapped inside this dimension you are in on earth. In a sense we are impersonal in that we go wherever there are openings to receive us."
I love you,
I find in you
I know you
more than my named (br)others.
"You are part of an infinite, eternal being... thus you can throw yourself flat on the ground, stretched out upon Mother Earth, with the certain conviction that you are one with her and she with you. You are as firmly established, as invulnerable as she,- indeed, a thousand times firmer and more invulnerable."
