"This is Body with Original Spirit, welcome back to class.
As with previous channeling, in this lesson We'll be using both
the singular and plural pronouns and first and third persons
in referring to Body. In the second attention Body is singular,
in the first attention we are plural... and of course we have
"Along with manifesting in two
attentions and in two genders, Body also manifests with two
kinds of awareness... conscious awareness and sentient awareness.
The awareness of Spirit and mind is called 'consciousness' or
'light,' and the awareness of Will-emotions and Body-sensations
is called 'sentience' or 'feeling.'
"All of reality on
every level is included in at least one of these two fundamental
kinds of awareness. Spirit's conscious awareness hosts images
and thoughts, and the Mother's sentient
awareness is of feelings and sensations. In any moment when the
two are in alignment, Heart becomes
present... and remains until conscious awareness turns away,
usually in judgment.
"As Spirit has said earlier in this class,
reality is ultimately a subjective
affair... it exists only as it is perceived. 'Who' perceives
is you. 'What' you perceive is your 'reality.' And how you perceive
or behold reality... is with your awareness.
"If in the moment you have more consciousness
and less sentience, you will experience more thoughts, ideas,
spiritual understandings and light, with fewer feelings about
them. In other words, you'll be more 'in your head.' If in the
moment you have more sentience, and less consciousness... you
will experience more emotions and bodily sensations, but with
little thought about them. In other words, you'll be more 'emotional'
or 'in your body.'
"If you experience any combination of
consciousness and sentience... you are alive. Life, all life
has both kinds of awareness... and all fragments are alive. The
sun is alive, the moon is alive, the galaxy is alive, and so
is every particle, from the fragments that make up atoms to the
galaxies that make up your 'universe.' All living things have
awareness, both consciousness and sentience. Life is the essence
of manifestation, Body's essential quality.
"Your human awareness is vast and varied.
Each nerve cell in your body, and every other kind of cell as
well... has a life of its own. Each cell is a focal point of
awareness. But what kind of awareness? In manifestation there
is much more sentience than consciousness. As discussed earlier
in this class, there is much more
of the feeling, magnetic-Will essence in manifestation than
there is the thinking, electric-Spirit essence.
"Trees, for instance are very sentient,
but not very conscious. Human consciousness can easily say, 'Trees
have no awareness...' But trees very much do have awareness.
They have sentient awareness, feelings... it's just that most
humans are unable to perceive the kind of sentience that trees
"With the exception of themselves and
their fellow mammals, humans have a great deal of trouble perceiving
any of the incredible, deep sentience in Creation. And a great
many humans are challenged to fully perceive even their own sentience...
because they are often so much 'in their heads.'
Consciousness in Body
"In order to work together in the healing,
Will, Spirit and Body must to be able to relate well with each
other. The first step in relating with Body is to be able perceive
me. For instance, right now in the first attention I'm moving
my eyes to scan these lines of type as you read. Can you feel
Body doing this? How does it feel?
"Thank you for stopping and paying attention
to something you may not have noticed in a while... Body in the
first attention, the already manifested part of Deity closest
to you. In fact, your constant companion and best friend... remember?
"What else do you notice about me? Can
you sense the pull of gravity that draws me into the seat or
whatever is supporting us? Is there any discomfort, any place
where you feel Body may want to move or change position? If so,
thank you for helping me. Thank you for noticing Body and allowing
me to adjust myself for more comfort.
"If you have done this, you have used
your consciousness to be of service to your sentience. By becoming
consciously aware of even a slight sentient discomfort, and giving
that part of Body or Will the loving light of your conscious
awareness, you have helped consciousness serve sentience, you
have helped the God of Love become
present with something needing healing in your Body or Will.
"This has not been the general rule,
in any Creation. Ever since manifestation began, consciousness
has insisted that sentience should serve him. I say 'him' because
consciousness, light, Spirit... is more expanding and outgoing
or 'pushy,' the more masculine awareness. And of course sentience,
emotion, sensation, Will, the Mother... is more indrawing and
magnetic, the more feminine awareness.
"The fundamental problem in Creation
has been a result of the power that consciousness has held over
sentience. At first glance it seems natural. Spirit and consciousness
seem to be stronger, wiser and quicker. Why shouldn't they be
"The answer lies in the feeling nature
of Will. The Mother's sentience holds the key that makes it possible
for consciousness to exist. Her magnetic essence knows just what
is right and what is not right in any given moment... by the
way it feels.
"Consciousness can look at the situation
and 'see' what is needed, but without the feeling sense in the
Will that is holding the situation in manifestation, he cannot
really know what is right. A great many manifestations that look
good but feel bad have resulted from the conscious awareness
of Spirit having dominance over the sentient awareness of the
"The time for mind to rule over Body
and the emotions is coming to an end. There is so very much magnetic
essence in need of cooperative, helpful, loving Light. So
much Will essence has been 'lost' that now something very
different must happen... if life is to go on.
"Consciousness has believed he knows
what's best, while sentience knows she knows. And it hurts
when her knowing is denied or ignored by consciousness. It hurts
when consciousness 'decides' what should or should not happen
in Creation without reference to the needs and desires of sentience.
As with the trees, for instance.
"Healing Body, Body healing Creation...
this will happen. It will happen because Body has the parentalness
and power to bring consciousness from its position of master
over sentience... to the much healthier position of her servant.
Only when consciousness is at the service of sentience can the
real healing begin.
"You are Body in human form, and whether
you have realized it yet or not, you have incredible skill and
potential in both powers of awareness. As Body, both consciousness
and sentience are at your command.You, and only you can do this
thing that has never been done. But how will you turn a tide
that has been going the wrong way since the beginning, since
the foundations of manifestation were first laid?
"The answer is in your willingness. The
willingness of conscious awareness to serve sentient awareness
is the first necessary step in healing within Body. In my introduction
to the healing class on Body, I pointed to finding and encouraging
the willingness to heal as the first
key step. Now I'd like to begin discussing the second step."
The Second Dimension of Time
"There is another dimension of time that
is hidden to most humans, but quite obvious to 'higher consciousness.'
The ordinary conception of time is like a line that goes from
the past through the present and into the future. Events can
be placed on this line, and it is used to organize and make sense
of much of human experience. But linear time is only one dimension
"The second dimension of time can be
understood if you imagine that rather than a completely straight
line, linear time unfolds as a giant spiral or circle that comes
back again to its beginning, like the rim of a wheel.
"Now imagine that each moment on the
line of time, each moment on the rim of the wheel... is connected
by a spoke that goes all the way to the wheel's central hub.
Linear time still unfolds as a spiral-like line, but each moment
along that line is connected to a single, central point through
a 'spoke' in the wheel. In this metaphor the spokes and hub represent
the second dimension of time.
"The first dimension of time is the cornerstone
of the first attention... and
along with the three dimensions of space, it constitutes the
four dimensional space-time continuum. The second temporal dimension,
however, exists only in the second
attention when physicality is limited to only four dimensions.
"The place in the center, at the hub
of the wheel... is beyond all time, and has access to every moment...
past, present and future. As a seeker moves inward toward the
hub, they move toward higher and higher consciousness.
"This place at the hub, in the center
of time, is the single eternal moment through which consciousness
can behold all of manifestation... including all the events and
realities at the rim, all the fixtures and forces of the first
"From the perspective of the hub of the
wheel, the rim and all of its manifestations are illusionary.
They exist in time, and from the point of view of eternity...
they are not real. In other words, from this point of view the
first attention and everything in it is illusionary. From the
point of Eternal Now, linear time and the space and energy and
matter associated with it appear to be temporary, impermanent.
Only this single eternal moment of cosmic consciousness experienced
at the hub seems to be 'real.'
"This understanding has been the basis
of many religions and philosophies. And in those terms 'attainment'
has meant leaving the rim of the wheel, leaving the world of
pain and suffering, the world of 'Maya'... and moving as far
into the second attention as possible, by traveling in the second
dimension of time toward the hub, toward the Eternal Now. This
point of absolute presence is where one may experience themselves
as the crown of Creation, and indeed its Creator.
"This is the journey of the spiritual
masters and mystics and many practitioners of magic. It is considered
to be the way of conquering death, because in eternity... in
the single moment of 'Now' or 'all time,' there is no death.
In these terms death is part of the illusion of linear time,
just an another element along the rim of the wheel of karma.
"But all this 'attainment' has been leaving
something out... Body and the Mother.
The Will and Body of Creation have been left behind by these
'adepts.' They were necessary steps to the attainment of permanent
cosmic bliss... but here in the 'Now,' they are no longer necessary.
"And although nothing has seemed wrong
with this, when consciousness has moved into the 'higher realms'
away from the first attention, away from sentience... and particularly
away from the most difficult parts of the feeling essence, it
has in effect left manifestation itself behind. It's been a journey
of return to Original Heart, but
without Body, and without the Mother's most vital parts. And
it always has ended in singularity, oneness without true peers.
This was not Original Heart's intention in splitting itself to
create manifestation. And it is nothing like the Mother's dream.
"And yet to 'higher consciousness' this
has seemed for all world like the right direction to go, and
even though Body has been placated in the process... this permanent
withdrawing of consciousness has not been helping the healing
of the pain and suffering of the lost Will in Body. This has
not been consciousness in the service of sentience. This has
been consciousness escaping the limitations it has perceived
certain kinds of sentience had placed on its freedom. It's been
the old story of Spirit lifting out of the pain, suffering and
hopelessness of Body and the Mother."
The Third Dimension of Time
"There is yet another dimension to time.
Imagine, if you will, that the wheel is not flat, but rather
shaped like a cone. In other words, the rim of the wheel forms
the circumference at the base of the cone, and the hub becomes
the point at the vertex. If it where standing upright, the cone
would resemble the shape of the pointed hat traditionally worn
by wizards and witches.
"In this view the base of the cone or
brim of the hat is the four dimensional universe of the first
attention. The point at the top of the hat is now the central,
all present single moment of eternity that includes all other
moments in the second attention as they unfold, all the way down
to the bottom where linear time of the first attention is like
the brim of the hat.
"'Spiritual attainment' has meant essentially
that consciousness leaves the brim and moves up to take permanent
residence in the all-powerful present moment of Creation. But
this is not true wholeness. In this scenario Body is left to
die its 'illusionary' death. And Will is left without the light
or consciousness that she needs to bring herself out of her pain.
"The Mother, the Will of Creation is
based in sentience. Our metaphor can be expanded to include her
reality too. She is not only present at the brim, in the upper
chakras, but in all the chakras
below as well.
"Now imagine two cones, with their bases
together. One points upward like the wizard's hat... that's consciousness.
The other points downward, like a downward moving vortex or whirlpool...
that's sentience. In the middle, at the widest point is Heart,
balancing the feeling sense of sentience with the knowing sense
"In the upper cone or whirlpool is consciousness
and light...ever rising up in glory, abundance and bliss. In
the lower cone or whirlpool is sentience, dropping down ever
lower into darkness, pain and misery... in the absence of the
Light which has risen away from her. And all of this, both consciousness
and sentience... all of this is Body.
All awareness, all consciousness and sentience
is of and in manifestation, it is the totality of existence.
And real wholeness, true wholeness demands that it all
be included. Nothing can be lifted out of or left behind."
Loving Light and Empowering Light
Grandfather have said that this is to be
a complete recovery of all the lost
Will essence of all the Creations. This includes everything necessary
to realize the Mother's Dream, and this means that all
of her lost parts will be reclaimed.
"In order for this to happen, the direction
of Spirit's movement, the traditional preferred direction of
consciousness... must change. Instead of rising up and away from
the first attention and all the Will essence that is in pain
and drudgery there, it must come back down and be with her. And
moreover, loving Spirit as your own conscious awareness must
be willing to move all the way down to the deepest and darkest
Hells that exist at the bottom of the lower vortex.
"Heart has said that there are two kinds
of Light... Loving Light and empowering
Light. Empowering Light has been rising up and away from
lost Will, seeking ever more freedom, power and glory.
"Loving Light, truly exalted consciousness,
conscious awareness with the intent to heal... is Light that
is coming down from the heights of glory and power to be with
the most anguished terror in Hell. Loving Light is truly worthy
of the title 'God.' It is Light that's willing to somehow find
its way... to dwell with the Mother and her most painful realities
"Just as empowered consciousness can
know the pleasures of eternal bliss in the Now of the single
present moment... loving consciousness is willing to also know
the abject pain of the eternal suffering in the forever Now of
the Mother's deepest and darkest sentient awareness.
"But who will do this? Who would voluntarily
bring their consciousness from the heights of the cosmic glory
and power they have attained... to the hopeless depths of torturous
pain and despair? The answer of course is you, the human whose
intent is the healing of Creation.
"Only those who are already in manifestation
are capable of completely identifying with Body in both attentions...
and then reclaiming all of the lost Will of Creation, all of
the lost Will in manifested existence. Isn't this you?
"Only you are capable of bringing unmanifested
Spirit and the eternal glory of Heaven to its new home here on
Earth.This is the essence of the healing work, the culmination
of Original Spirit's search for
the Mother's Body. And in the next part of this lesson we'll
discuss some practical methods you may find useful in doing this
"It is both your conscious awareness
of the highest, most glorious spiritual realities of joy and
Light... and your spirit's love for consciously knowing the sentient
awareness of the deepest, most hopeless realities of the Mother's
pain and suffering. These qualities are what will enable you
as Body to bring together the two opposite poles of Creation
in their completely whole, loving union... manifesting who you
truly are, New Heart in Body."
