How we live in both the Spiritual and Physical World simultaneously
We have become more and more aware that we are part of a spirit world that is present around us. We also understand that we are more than just this physical presence we have, but that we are composed of a spirit, a soul and a body; in essence a triune being.
Because we are spirit, we have our existence both here in the physical, but as well, we have our existence based in a spirit world that we have become more acutely aware of. We are, in essence, energetic beings, existing in both a spiritual and natural world, simultaneously.
Translated in English, what does it mean? It means that we co-exist in 3 worlds simultaneously, and as we have become more and more conscious of that existence, we are more and more aware of our abiding and our interaction within that realm.
Imagine with me if you will a vast ocean. Moreover, there you stand, immersed in this vast ocean, at one with it. You sense it, you feel it, and it flows through you. This ocean is the world of spirit that you have your existence in. You are a part of it, and every aspect of this ocean affects you and is a part of you. We live in this world of spirit, 24/7, but most have no awareness of this reality. Never the less, this ocean, this world of spirit, is reality, and affects all things. You may think you are a physical being, but you are more spirit than you have ever realized.
Living in this world is analogous to experiencing on-the-job training. We come here to attain growth as a soul (an individualized aspect of spirit). As a spirit, we are already perfectly one with God. But with every human body and life we experienced on Earth over the millennia, we create a different soul body to be the vehicle for our spirit as it experiences the world in the vehicle of a human body. At the physical level, our body is conscious. At the soul level, our mind is subconscious. At the spirit level, we are super conscious. We are multi-dimensional and exist in three different worlds at the same time. There are many abodes and many dimensions. We are working our way back up “Jacob’s ladder” of success toward the goal of perfected individuality as a soul to go along with our already perfect Wholeness as a spirit. We are evolving into an individualized version of the Whole which is “God” consciousness.
As a human being, we seem like such a small creation in an infinite universe, but this is only an illusion. As individuals, we are the human and soul part of God. We are extensions of thought in the Mind of God (the collective Whole). We are bringing this higher universal consciousness into this tiny world called Earth while at the same time we are developing individual consciousness. We are the Mind of God becoming human. We are the body, mind and spirit of God evolving into a perfect individual-divine unity. We have examples of this human-divine unity in the life of Jesus. The goal in human evolution is for us to attain a human-divine consciousness, which can overcome the limitations of the body, walk on water if we choose, or even live-forever on this planet as a human if we choose to. We are powerful spiritual beings with a oneness of the Whole and the wholeness of the One. On a higher level, we are gods just as Jesus said. This is another way of saying we are “godlings” or “children.” We are growing up to be like our Parents. The core of our being, our spirit, is perfect love and perfect “God consciousness.” We travel this River of Life to bring the “kingdom of God” to this world.
You have all knowledge
Within this realm of spirit exists the presence of God, the Father, and Christ, and a host of innumerable angels and spirits of just men made perfect (Hebrews 12). As well, within this realm of spirit was all knowledge?
And knowledge – all knowledge – exists almost in a state of fluidity, in the spirit realm. Available to all, however, few really access it.
Seeing that His divine power has granted to us everything pertaining to life and godliness…2Pe 1:3
When the Lord spoke that, He gave us all things pertaining to life and godliness; there was a hitch, they exist and have their reality in the spirit; and must be appropriated or “drawn down” by Children. Yes we have all things. Yes we are rich. Yes, we have all knowledge. But it must be taken. It must be appropriated. This means, you need to know that it is here, and that you can do this.
Let’s look for a moment at a couple of scriptures…
“But the Helper, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in my name, He will teach you all things, and bring to your remembrance all that I said to you. John 14:26
As for you, the anointing which you received from Him abides in you, and you have no need for anyone to teach you; but as His anointing teaches you about all things, and is true and is not a lie, and just as it has taught you, you abide in Him. 1Jn 2:27
None of you really has need for a teacher, for in truth; this knowledge is at your disposal, if you only realized it.
The Word says….you have not because you ask amiss, or ask not; ask that your joy may be made full. (James 4:2) (Jn 16:24)
The problem is we have not known how to ask, and we have not known what to ask. That is why we wait upon the Lord that is why we travail and are driven to stay in His presence.
And what’s more; knowledge is being released, as we speak, into the spirit realm; knowledge which becomes available for the taking.
“And those who have insight will shine brightly like the brightness of the expanse of heaven, and those who lead the many to righteousness, like the stars forever and ever. But as for you,
Daniel, conceal these words and seal up the book until the end of time; many will go back and forth, and knowledge will increase.”
Knowledge is increasing. We are in a heightened time of release. You could call it an outpouring of His spirit, of His presence, and of His knowledge…..knowledge Of the Lord …. That will literally fill all the earth.
(One side note addendum….when the word speaks of many shall go back and forth…it has been vertically interpreted as an acceleration of travel on the physical plane, indicative of the time we walk – but there is a higher meaning…. It really speaks of an access and flow between dimensions, or if you prefer, through the veil. This is what is unfolding, this is really what Daniel 12 refers to).
As the words of spirit continue to come forth, more and more knowledge is being released and being made available to the sons. You may find inspiration coming to you, dreams in the night, or impressions, unaware perhaps that their origins are emanating from this release in the spirit of a flow of knowledge to God’s people, because the time is now for all to be in the flow.
David Goines’ NDE: Humans have a mental and spirit body. Before going through the veil, we chose our own physical body. We must forget these memories because in order to experience a physical life, we must experience the physical things, be physically challenged, make choices of free will, and make mistakes so that we can learn from them in ways that only a physical life could impart.
If we retained all of our prior knowledge, we might not bother to experience the physical life for its fulfillment – we might decide to skip the pain and thus miss the pleasure. We promised God that upon accepting the opportunity, challenges and responsibility of a physical life, we would make the most of this opportunity for ourselves and God, return to God with the knowledge and experience gained so that God will be enhanced by our experience.
The reason we need to experience a separation of our total reality when we took on a physical body is because in order for us to appreciate, benefit, and learn all we can from our physical life, we must re-discover what we knew before – in physical ways.
Through our physical life we must discover how to return to God. By the good that we do to each other here, by the ways we improve our minds, and by the ways that we learn to cope with a physical body and physical life, we earn our right of safe passage back to God; and in doing so we honor God. It is God’s love that sends us on the journey and it is our love for God that will allow us to return to God’s loving arms. (David Goines)
