Experiencing Conscious Contact – Part 4

Dear Friends and Light Workers,

This continuing series will expand and explain the eleven facets identified in Part 3, “The Framework for Conscious Contact.” This message takes a deeper look at the first facet:

“1. Designate a sacred space for Conscious Contact.”

Our first reference for Conscious Contact (CC) comes from Jesus. He often admonished his Apostles to “...go into your room, close the door, and have a talk with your Heavenly Father.” We often associate this with prayer, but it was much more than this. Let’s break this down:

“...your room” is a personal space — it belongs to you and you alone. It is a comfortable space and a familiar space. It is a place where you have personal belongings and a place that is your refuge from the doings of the outer world.

“...close the door” means to make it private — a place where you can be undisturbed.

“...have a talk with your Heavenly Father” means to have intimate and personal open dialog with the Indwelling Presence of the Father — your Thought Adjuster. Jesus did not say, “Go into your room and meditate on the Father”, or “Go into your room and have thoughts about the Father” — he specifically said, “have a talk.” It could be that Jesus gave his Apostles more detailed instructions on this, but we do not have this information in the record.

This is not to say that meditation (stillness) or internal dialog with the Father has little value, for it is supplemental and has great benefit for expanding the mind and keeping our “center.” It could be better described as “Constant Contact” with the Father. This idea about having a constant internal dialog or connection with the Creator Father (“praying without ceasing”) may be one of those more detailed instructions Jesus conveyed to his Apostles as a way to retain more light in consciousness, which for us is something that is vitally important for communion with the Father/TA and our celestial siblings.

We also know that Jesus’ Apostles were simple folk, mostly, and had a mind full of "DOs and DON’Ts — a litany of rituals and religious rules about nearly every thought and action of daily life. They were not disciplined meditators and Jesus knew how they could have effective communion with their TAs without having to sit in stillness for long periods. This is also the case for most people. Only those that have dedicated themselves to meditation and stillness can experience a more unified consciousness when reaching the point of stillness.

I have sat in stillness many times, but only on rare occasions have I ever reached the absolute stillness point where all thought and sound disappear, and your mind enters an expansive place where you feel no limits — your human body seems absent from your consciousness, and when that happens it is so startling that it often jolts me out of that place within a few seconds.

Conscious Contact, on the other hand, provides a communication link between you and the TA that often results in energetic feedback from the TA when you lay bare your soul and remove the temporal dressings that you normally wear around other people. In essence, you are making known to your TA that CC is a sacred conduit between you and Father. You are on holy ground in this place — it is your personal sacred space — no matter where it is — It is yours and the Father’s.

Because this space is sacred and it is where you have CC, I like to remove all electronic devices, glasses, and shoes. I am reminded that Moses, when he approached the Burning Bush on Mt. Sinai, was admonished by the “Voice of God” to take his shoes off, for he was “standing on holy ground.” It wasn’t that this particular place was holy, but because he was communicating with the Father (I AM that I AM) the ground (or space) around him was holy and full of light.

We know from our talks with Vutia, that she often talks about “bringing more light into consciousness” as a way to “see revelation.” What she is suggesting is to “condition” our minds for communion with the Father.

How can we condition our minds to bring in more light? Having an Intention, a deep emotional sense of unity and reverence — gratitude. Since this message is about your sacred space, you would want to fill it with something that brings an emotional response or remembrance of your divine encounter — and this is where your creativity comes in. Is it necessary to embellish this space? No, it is not, for your mind can create this sense of heightened emotional reverence and humility, but if it aids you to bring in things that are beautiful; that inspire you; and it amplifies this enlightened feeling, then by all means experiment and make it your own!

Your sacred space is your holy consciousness amplifier — it is your personal cathedral!

Please stay with me on this sacred journey.

Peace to you,
Chris Maurus

Message received by Lytske

The Beloved: “Yes, stand in awe before Me – I, who give everlasting life to each of My children. Allow the self to be totally saturated in My love.

It is I, who abides in, and with you. All the days of this life count as nothing, compared to the life I have prepared for you.

You are My child. Even before I created you, I had a special plan and purpose for your life. Your life is meant to sing praises unto Me, and in your doing so, you sing praises unto yourself.

For, know this, My child: I am you and you are becoming Me. Together we are becoming one. You live your life to become one with Me.

Feel My total acceptance of you. Let Me flow through you. Let Me guide you into life everlasting.

Oh Joy. Oh Love. Oh Life.”

The Elephant Standing in the Way

Message received by Anyas.

“…but with all this, Jesus was interested only in the individual, not the mass. Jesus was not a sociologist, but he did labor to break down all forms of selfish isolation. He taught pure sympathy, compassion.” [UB, 140:8.11]

Thought Adjuster: “If your commission were to save the world at large, how would you best proceed? It would require a lot of wisdom to tackle such a gigantic task with focused energies effectively.

You all know how easy it is to get side-tracked by other intervening factors. Creation and co-creation occur through focused attention. The process begins by the formulation of a worthwhile objective set within the parameters of truth, beauty, and goodness. It then moves to its implementation phase.

How far-reaching was the impactful life of Jesus, one man devoted to revealing to humankind their innate and divinely infused power as co-creators! He 'worked the crowds,' always on the outlook for individuals with whom he could make soul contact through eye contact. After giving it much thought, he grasped that salvation is a personal matter that exerts a snowball effect on society — not the other way around.

Society comes up with laws and regulations to protect the human rights of individuals. Yet many of them are subject to the whims of evolution, which constantly brings up new sustainability issues in its wake.

For instance, the planetary advent of the computer age could turn out to be a blessing or a curse depending on the free-will applications of such a revolutionary innovation. It may throw your world off balance for a while until it regains a sure forward footing.

Once you make up your mind that you want to remedy any personal imbalance areas, yours is to take the necessary steps to ‘save yourself with heaven’s help.’ Salvation starts with mutual free will decisions on the part of the ‘saviors’ who live up to their mission statement and of those they come to rescue — provided they wholeheartedly collaborate in the process. Indeed, resistance is the elephant standing in the way.”

Only I Know Where I Am Leading You

Urantia, February 01, 2021.
Teacher: The Beloved.
Subject: “Only I Know Where I Am Leading You.”

Message received by Lytske.

The Beloved: “My child, as with everything else, practice makes perfect. It is a source of great delight to Me that you persist in your daily seeking of Me.

This is so new to you, and just like going to kindergarten where you acquire new knowledge, you are also reinforcing that which you already know; and for this to become more expanded through repetition.

Through the daily partaking in meditation, you will gain a greater understanding and a steadily enlarging perspective.

It is necessary for Me to proceed slowly – so very slowly, because the human psyche tends to be fragile and may easily drift away from its course.

My purpose is to answer your desire for a deeper relationship with Me, which after all, is also My desire so that you may hear My voice even more clearly in times to come. However, this will only occur through diligent practice on your part.

It would be unwise for Me to teach you at university level whilst you are in the lowest of grades, although I may here and there infuse your mind with tiny morsels, and therewith open your mind to greater wonders.

I perceive that this makes sense to you. Yes, as long as you stay close to Me, nothing disastrous will befall you, but I ask you to keep your ego at bay. I can only come close when you keep it pure and simple and don’t let your thoughts and opinions intrude.

After all, only I know where I am leading you: to total mastery of self and onto perfection in eternity.

And this My child, is the assignment we do together.

As one.”

Service to Your Peers

Alabama, US of A, October 29, 2013.
Teacher: Thought Adjuster.
Subject: “Service to Your Peers.”

Message received by Oscar.

Thought Adjuster: “Service to your peers is one of the fruits of spirit that arises spontaneously when the heart of a human being begins to fill with divine love. When you realize that in the end, all are one, it becomes evident that the progress and well-being of all is essential for the establishment of a reality with more light and truth. As universal citizens, your purpose is to co-create with deity a reality that is a more faithful expression of the will of the Father. Therefore, as you understand your duty and the privilege that involves participating in the creation of this reality, you understand also that everyone is necessary in order to make that happen.

Service to your peers has nothing to do with solving other people’s problems. Each one is responsible of facing and overcoming the challenges of life on their own. It is in decisions and actions where the human soul is born and grows. If you deprive your neighbors of the opportunity to make their own decisions of eternal value, you would be effectively impeding the growth of their immortal souls.

Strive to serve your peers as the Father serves you. The Divine Presence of God lives within you and guides your decisions and your thoughts to higher ground. This presence just offers suggestions and accepting these suggestions and making the necessary decisions to manifest the reality that your Thought Adjuster has suggested depends on you – of your free will. Similarly, you can offer advice to your peers if they ask for it. You can also offer the truth you have discovered if you perceive that their thirsty souls desire to drink the water of life.

In general, be for your peers what the Father would be if He was in your place. This was perfectly illustrated by the mortal life of Michael. He was never indolent in the face of the suffering of His human siblings. He never left in the dark anybody who expressed even the faintest desire to see the light. He was the peace and the rest for all those filled with confusion, conflicts, and anxiety who met him on His travels in this world. He offered His goodness and love to all who were willing to accept them. Could you do the same? Certainly, you can, because the same nature that inhabited Jesus is already within you and it is only up to you to let that divinity express through your being.”
