My Story ~ A Thirsty Man In The Desert

When I was younger, I did not understand that the Spirit and I were one. I only knew that I longed to know the will of the Spirit, to be filled with the Spirit, and to love myself and others as the Spirit loved me. So, like a thirsty man in the desert, I have searched oasis after oasis, followed many “narrow pathways” that promised me living water. Being lead to the wells, I drank deeply, but never was my thirst quenched, and never did the water come freely. I became disillusioned and was left tired and empty. My thirst is unquenched. Leaving my body, soul and spirit depleted.

The Search For Living Water

Year after year I searched, for the Spirit, the living water that would quench my spiritual thirst. Days turned into years, years into decades in this spiritual desert, I would never give up, until I died. Nothing could stop me, so I continued to search for that “living water,” drinking from the sickly wells, followed by one disappointment after another until I could no longer go on. My body in a state of complete depletion, and yet the thirst was still there, but being too weak, all I could do was to lay quietly and let my body, mind, and soul be as they were, and accept my condition and put my fate in the hands of the universe. I rested and even feel asleep. When I awoke, I looked into the silence of the desert, and like a mirage shimmering out of desert heat I saw a figure, a form, a man walking on the heatwaves, he was beautiful, and had a flask of water strung across his chest. He came to me, knelt at my side, gently lifted my head, put the drink to my lips, and for the first time in my life’s journey, living water flowed across my lips, and my strength was restored. I looked deeply into his eyes and thanked him for coming to me when I had given up all hope. He only said it is good that you have given yourself up. Now rest, relax, be quiet, knowing I AM with you, for we are one, and I am you. I will always be with you in this world without end.

No More Searching

I marvel, I thirst no more. My thirst is quenched, I AM Spirit in Spirit, and so I relax in real knowing that I AM one with the Spirit.

How is it possible that only when I gave up altogether and felt I had nothing, that I gained everything? My years in the desert are but a fading memory, the agonizing search, so many false promises. Only when I allowed the stillness of exhaustion to seep into my entire being, did I surrender to what was already within and my thirst was no more.

You Are So Loved… You Are Never Alone

I hope my story, helps you on your life’s journey. Maybe you will not have to suffer the empty deserts, or narrow pathways leading to sickly wells. It was only when I reached the point of exhaustion, which I was able to relax and let go indeed.

Blessings,

Faith Comes From Living In The Spirit… It’s Not About Being Religious

Like The Force, The Spirit Gives Out Its Gifts Without Conditions

I remember the first Star Wars film, and what stuck most with me was how everyone, even Darth Vader could access The Force. Yes, both good or evil had access to The Force.

The Force didn’t judge the motives of those who used its powers. It gavHis Spirit Gives You Love Without Any Condition's... How Will You Share That Love So Freely Given To You?e them whatever they requested unconditionally. It was always up to the person what they did with the skills they received.

Though the Force is made up in the mind of the author of Star Wars, The Forces attributes paralleled the attributes of those of God or The Creator whom I call The Spirit. Most of all I caught The Forces show of unconditional love flowing out to every entity. The Force always left it up to the individuals to do with the gift of the power whatever they chose. The actors choice was to give The Force a level of influence in their lives; the actors are much like us when it comes to The Spirit; we can choose to be novices or masters.

The Force Is With You And In You And Just May Be You

Like The Force in the movie, The Spirit in real life, when given mastery in our lives, heals us and strengthens us. Provides us with mental clarity and the ability to do anything we believe we can do. So, for me, the terms The Spirit and The Force are synonymous and being a Spirit Man is a lot like Yoda being a Master.

So, today as a man, I AM also The Spirit for It lives in me and through me, its hard to explain, but It’s now becoming me, maybe I AM becoming a master.

The choices are mine as to how I use the gifts given to me by The Spirit. I can choose the “dark side” or the “Light.” Today, I want The Light and to use The Spirits gifts to help me give, or better yet BE unconditional love towards all mankind, all sentient beings, and the earth. The rest of this article is just about the spiritual journey of how I got to where I AM at this moment. I hope you will join me, and may The Force be with you.

The Spirit Is Always With Us

Do You Want A Spiritual Awakening?

If you are like me, you feel the need for a spiritual awakening at the very core of your being. This desire is ever-present, always there, softly humming in the background of my consciousness. It’s inside me, and outside of me, it encompasses me and everything in my world, all the time.

In my space, I mostly call this presence Spirit or Love. I always want to make it easier for me to relate, to people of different cultures, religions, and spiritual practices. So I defer to them and interchange Spirit and Love with whatever name brings comfort to that person.

It is man who names everything...
What Is The Spirits Name?

Being human means, we must have a name for everything. There are so many names for what really in truth is nameless. Jesus, God, Life Force, Yahweh, The Field, Spirit, Love, etc. To say the name of this presence has to be exactly this or that limits It to the religion of the mind and the form of my (our) thoughts.

Knowing we humans need to label and name to relate, I will use the names Spirit, I Am and Love throughout this article, feel free to replace these names with any name, you find comforting.

Maybe love is the only pathway to knowing the Divine.
We Feel Something Drawing Us To It

When I was younger, I was taught that the Spirit only wanted to be with certain people, of particular religions, which performed certain practices and, and, and… It’s now obvious to me; the Spirit wants to be one with me, you, and everyone. Yes, no one is excluded from the Spirits unconditional love and desire to be one with all creation. There is no religion or spiritual practice that will bring us any closer to the Spirit then we already are.

As I grow in age and gain more wisdom, I am coming to believe that before any of us ever sought after the Spirit; the Spirit was already with us. Actually, in us, the Spirit just patiently waits for us to know, we were already one and the same.

How many times have we felt the Spirit’s presence, but we could not quite connect with It? Sometimes the presence of the Spirit is so strong It causes us to tremble, at other times it’s barely perceptible. We cannot see It, yet we know the Spirit is where ever we are. It’s a primal knowing, which we have felt since the beginning of time, It’s presence, is here, now, and we like It have no beginning and no ending.

We sense the Spirit drawing us near, softly whispering, deep calling unto deep, eternally in love with each other. We have known in our heart of hearts, since the beginning of time, that our very souls have always cried out, praying that we would be immersed in the very essence of the Spirit. Having this kind of relationship was needed for us to feel complete. For some of us, we thirst after the Spirit, longing to be immersed in It, filled with It, and know that we will only feel at complete when we are one with the Spirit.

Our Hearts Are Aflame

I cannot speak for all men, but most of those who I have known, have what I would call inherent Spirit knowingness. This knowingness bids them, call out from the deepest recesses of their souls, for the Spirit to come commune with them. They cannot rest until they are one at heart with the Spirit. Their hearts are aflame, as they seek the filling of the Spirit. With a burning desire, they ask the Spirit to guide them and show them how to be love and see the world and all creation through the eyes of love; for in our hearts we know that the spirit is pure unconditional love.

Many of us feel desperate, somehow we are like little children who cannot feel safe and complete, without their moms and dads. The Spirit is our mother and father! We search high and low for the Spirit; we cry out from the depth of our souls for the Spirit to come and be with us. We long to see ourselves, the earth, and all sentient beings through the eyes of the Spirit. We know in our hearts the Spirit can only give us what we need; hearts aflame with unconditional love for ourselves, the earth, its creatures and all mankind.

I hope my story, helps you on your life’s journey. Maybe you will not have to suffer the empty deserts, or narrow pathways leading to sickly wells. It was only when I reached the point of exhaustion, that I was able to truly relax and let go. The Google dictionary defines “to relax”:

To become less tense or anxious. “He relaxed and smiled confidently.”

Antonyms: contract, tighten. tense. restricted, holding on.

    • cause (a limb or muscle) to become less rigid, antonyms: tighten.
    • make (something) less firm or tight.” relax our hold” antonyms: contract, tighten.
    • make (a rule or restriction) less strict while not abolishing it.” they persuaded the local authorities concerned to relax their restrictions” antonyms: tighten up.

No More Religion Or Special Techniques

Wow! Did you check out the antonyms? They described me whenI was so focused on finding the Spirit. i.e., contracted, tightened, rigid, strict, holding on. When the Spirit saturated me with His living water, quenching my thirst, I realized for the first time who I was. I no longer needed to rely upon, or trust the words of other men, or drink from their wells.

Today, my reliance on the techniques, ways, and things of the world are fading fast. I now know that it’s the Spirit, being one with my spirit, that breathes eternal life in me. Whispering to me softly, the Spirit is guiding me gently on my spiritual path, the Spirits path, the only path that matters, for it is the only way into eternity.

I am free from judging myself, and others. No oaths to keep, no religion to hold onto, no work to do, no enemy to fight, no one to overcome, no thoughts to resist. I can just relax and be myself, my beautiful self, my spiritual-filled self.

Relax With The Spirit... Relax With God
Relax With The Spirit… Rest With God.

Relaxing With The Great I Am

My life in the Spirit is not about doing a certain meditation or saying the right prayer. It is not about me teaching someone else “the way.” The Spirit can handle that.

For me, life in the Spirit is truly an absolute experience of Resting and Relaxing in the Spirit. Letting myself be embraced and cradled. Trusting in the stillness, relaxing in the assurance that the Spirit is there, ever present so I can lay down my thoughts on what should be and relax, into the arms of the one who loves us without any conditions…the great I Am.

Its That Easy To Know The Spirit... We Just Need To Relax
It’s That Easy To Know The Spirit… We Just Need To Relax.

Relax, It’s Handled

I now know what Jesus meant when he said: “resist not evil.” Wow, how simple the Spirit has it handled, so we can relax, lay down our protections, our fear, and our walls. When we relax and just acknowledge that the Spirit has it covered, we will see evil dissipate, in fact, it implodes upon itself and disintegrates. If there is even anything such as evil, it loses its foothold when it comes to the light of the Spirit, the master of unconditional love who abides within us and with us all.

Robert C. MorganRelaxing Into The Present Moment

When I refrain from the mental struggle surrounding good and evil, the past and the future, I make room for the Spirit to be able to pour more living water into my soul. Together we resume our rightful place in my earthly life experience. We are once again able to relax and function in the present moment; quickly obtaining all that is necessary for us to experience the fullness of our existence. As my spirit rests and relaxes in the divine consciousness (HOLY SPIRIT), Spirit speaks to my mind, and I understand that wherever I am is Holy Ground. So what else is there to do, but to smile, breath and relax for I am in the best place ever.

The Spirit Hides Us In A Secret Place

The Spirit Hides Us In A Secret Place.

Relaxing In The Secret Place

Because we have made no human effort, we have resisted no evil, having stopped fighting temporal powers, we have now opened ourselves to the way of the Master. The way of the Spirit, the way of the Creator. For now, we can relax and live in GRACE, instead of fear, judgment, and shame. We can now relax and live our lives in the present moment, the time when temporal power no longer affects our peace.

We are now able to abide in the secret place of the most high, and live, and breathe divine GRACE. This gift of GRACE lies within each of us and is not separate, or apart from us, it’s in you now! The recognition of your Christ Consciousness is just relaxing and recognizing the state of Christ is in you, the knowingness that Spirit is one with your spirit and you are in the “I Am.”

Now let us all go into the presence of divine grace and relax. We no longer fear anything as we live in Spirit’s Divine Grace, in Christ consciousness, in God’s love.

Soul Mining “You Know It Don’t Come Easy”…

Saying we are on a spiritual path to Christ Consciousness is a misnomer and incomplete description of the inherent challenges associated with laying aside, one’s ego, the little self.  The Christ Conscious life is so much more than a simple journey. Like all things precious it is not easily obtained, and our way is fraught with spiritual, physical and mental challenges. I have found that living a life in Christ Consciousness is more like living the life of miner who’s must spend much of his life navigating dark and unfamiliar passages.

Instead of mining gold or diamonds, we mine the depths of our souls, digging deep within ourselves to find the spiritual nuggets of the truth of who we are and how we can be in present perfect alignment with the heart of our Creator.  As miners of our souls, we look for ways to reflect the spirit of Christ in our actions, always seeking the truth so we can be shining lights for those we find along our way in the world’s tunnels of darkness.

As soul miners, we are always ready to dig deep into the land given to us by Christ and mine the spiritual gold and diamonds that are our rightful inheritance as children of God.

“He that seeketh findeth, and to him that knocketh it shall be opened; ”

Do You Believe Your Prayers Are Answered?

 

Christ said: “When ye pray, believe ye have it. Become as a little child if you would enter the kingdom.”

 I just found that less than half of us pray on a daily basis. I felt somewhat astounded, as for most of my friends and me,  pray at least once and usually several times a day. Most of my friends are educated, coming from different countries, cultures, races, and religions. Many are Protestants, Catholics and some are Buddhist, Hindus, and Sikhs. Even with all our differences, we have a single bonding common denominator; that is we all pray. We all know there is more to this life than what meets the eye. 

Being humans means on most days we’re bombarded by distractions, challenges, and adverse situations.  I  believe if humanity understood how simple, but powerfully effective prayer is they would be cherishing their time in prayer, instead of avoiding it. If we could put aside our adult ego’s and become like children, full of curiosity’s and simple trust, we would be able to pray from our hearts.  Being like a child in our prayers knowing we are safe and cared for would open the door to the kingdom of heaven, and we would receive the spiritual, emotional and physical benefits associated with prayer and the miracles that God channels through prayers.

“Trust in me, commit your ways unto me.”

As for me, I’ve found a hiding place, a monk’s cave in the midst of the chaos. It’s my inner sanctum, It’s the kingdom of heaven within me, I  quickly enter my heavenly abode by simply being silent, being still and letting the I Am hear the prayer of my heart.  I m like a child I need ask for nothing for My loving Father knows all I need and all that has been made and will be done is already mine. I have ceased my longings, not of my volition, but because of His overwhelming love, a love that assures me in the depths of my heart, my Father is at this very moment performing the miracles I need, for He knows what’s best for me.  He never fails to release the exact miracles I need, and within moments they begin to flow over me like warm spring rains, saturating my body, soul, and spirit.

“For everyone who asks receives; he who seeks finds; and to him who knocks, the door will be opened. What father among you, if his son asks for a fish, will give him a snake instead? Or if he asks for an egg, will give him a scorpion?”

Our Supreme Creator, Lord and Maker God, works in mysterious ways, moment by moment, performing miracles and wonders for you and me. It’s my heartfelt belief that my prayers channel these miracles, making them the cornerstones of my life.

“Delight thyself also in the Lord, and He shall give thee the desires of thine heart.”

Prayer, oh what a blessed gift. What a comfort in times of testing. What else can heal a soul torn asunder?  What else can lift us from the depths of despair? When all else has failed, prayer always brings us physical and spiritual showers of blessings along with the miracles that support a life of peace, love and pure bliss.

What a happy feeling it is to pray until you get that warm glowing feeling that lights up your imagination and fills you with the sense that you are in the midst of a miracle, and you are already in possession of for which you have prayed. Oh, what a mysterious thing prayer is to so many, yet when we approach it’s from the point of our being like little children, prayers mysteries fade like the morning due in the midst of the sun’s warming rays.

“For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways,”
“As the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways and my thoughts than your thoughts.” 

May your life be filled with every blessing.

Watch And Worship, The Light Will Grow Stronger Until It’s Infinite

Being a seeker of truth my highest desire is to be one in spirit with the Spirt that created all things. I know there is more than one road to be taken on my quest of Christ consciousness and the understanding of what it really means being one with the I AM.

I also know that my spiritual experience is uniquely mine and that each of us finds ourselves on our personal spiritual and religious roads, usually based on our temperament, our family of origin and our national heritage. I honestly believe that there is no one way to meet each of our individual needs, only you know the path to which you belong. 

During my spiritual journey, I found, for me,  being in a state of Christ consciousness is where I am most at peace.  Part of my being able to maintain this state is to focus my attention on worshiping my God and living from the end. In other words living as if I have already obtained my heart’s desires. 

As I focus my intentions on my desired state, living as if I have already received my heart’s desires, I find, I’m more naturally inclined towards practicing mindful, loving kindness towards my brothers and sister and living in a state of joyful worship of my Creator.  

The incredible sense of joy I experience, recognizing that with my heart’s desire of being one with the Spirit is already done, my wish has been fulfilled and I am able to do all things because I am one with the I Am. In fact, most day’s I feel as though I am the richest man in the world and I’m safe in the arms of my Creator, who gives me the spiritual, physical and mental strength to live a rich and more useful, fulfilling life while on the earth.

I also know this, though I still love practicing them, my meditations, religious contemplations, and self−sacrificing for others, as well as studying the words of Christ and other spiritual teachers do not bring me the peace that passes human understanding. None of theses actions together or alone can take me closer than I already am when I imagine who I am and live from the end of that imagination.

Today I acknowledge,  I’m responsible for what is happening to me. I am the creator of my world, and each of my fellow humans is to themselves the way, the truth, and the life in their worlds.  Yet, the greatest mystery to me is that though we are each spiritual individuals, we are all part of Christ, being intricately connected, being parts of the only I Am, finding ourselves forever one with each other.  

So, I will trust being able to bring forth a good life as I live in the end of my imaginings, my heart with songs worship knowing that Christ’s light will grow stronger day-by-day in my life.

I will look for the flower to bloom in the silence that follows the storm, not till then.

I am one with the I Am and the I AM is one with me.

Love and Blessings, Robert C. Morgan “Bobby” 2017

And So They Have Misjudged You, It’s Going Tobe Ok.

Throughout our lifetime we will find ourselves being judged. Sometimes the judgments are harsh and uncalled for, and other times they are needed, or even asked for, so we can grow and learn.   Justified or unjustified, there are instances when our feelings are hurt by those who have judged us, and we become disconnected from our true selves as we become emotionally distraught in trying to make sense of the judgments.

When I was young, my mom gave me good advice when she told me to stay away from, or at least limit my contact with judgmental people; I can unequivocally say it was easier to do then than it is now.  With social media, blogging and trashing internet news sites, many of us experience judgments about any and every aspect of our person.  What was once somewhat avoidable is no longer so easily rendered void.

Having been on the receiving end of unasked for judgment, I know the emotional hurt associated with it. Though it has sometimes been painful, I’m thankful for going through these judgemental experiences; As with all things in life even what we perceive to be bad at the moment, always has a silver lining. One of those silver linings for me is I have been able to use my painful experiences to help others who are going through the pain of being judged, misjudged or even rightly judged.

Over the years I have helped others to use the following methods to deal with judgment. It’s straightforward, easy to understand and implement.

The pain you are experiencing from being judged, especially when the judgment is harsh or uncalled for, is real it affects you physically, mentally and emotionally.  Let’s feel better:

  • Find a quiet place to sit.
  • Close your eyes and just breathe in through your nose and out through your mouth. Notice the sound of your breath. Do this for a few moments.
  • Picture your judge and center them in a shining, loving light from above. Without thinking why they judged you, tell your accuser, your criticizer, your judge, thank you, thank you, thank you, and keep picturing them in the light for a few more moments.

Taking these steps, and having acknowledged that you’ve been hurt, you are releasing yourself from their judgment, and you’re grateful for what you have learned from them.

Blessings, Robert C. Morgan  “Bobby” 2017

Captured by You

It is you oh divine Spirit who has taken me captive. You alone bring healing and freedom to my soul. You become one with me, leading me gently into the kingdom of the heavenly realms within me. You have ensnared my every thought, ever shaping my world, ever drawing me into your loving embrace.  I am in awe as You build a new mansion of light and love within me, giving me rest for my soul, peace to my mind and strength in my body.  You are my home, my abode, my resting place; In the comfort of your presence, You heal my every wound. There is nothing I can ask for that You do not already know of and making wish fulfilled.

I live, I breathe for I am found within the great I AM, and the great I AM is found within me. Thank You, thank You, thank You.
