Note to Self: God ordains everything. You have to go through it, for it gives you the reference point. Telling the full story, the progression from ignorance to realization, gives people hope. The suffering and the difficulties we’ve gone through gives us compassion and gives us temperance.
To clear our self and return to a heavenly state takes work. It takes applied effort and practice. When we are living in the shadows of imprints passing through the prism of our self - our perception is dim. We can't see the light of who we really are, or have access to the divine inspirations of what to do. In that place, we are living in the carousel of patternings, that which clouds the magnificence of our true purpose.
I live a magical, abundant and rich life. Yet, I still go through it, and process through the imprints of scarcity and fear daily. I am demanded to do a lot of inner work every day just to maintain clarity, in order to stay aligned. And I still pass through the realms reflecting in my circumstance, my halo of manifestation. But, I have more awareness of the process than most beings on the planet, so it occurs differently for me as a Deva.
I want you to know It didn’t just happen for me. I lived my childhood up to early adulthood with flickering awareness, wallowing in the depths of suffering and anxiety, occasionally with my head coming just above water to witness beauty and wonder. I didn’t have access to know who I was. I was too naive to understand the complexity of human society and culture, or to know how the unhealthy foods, relationship dramas, violent media, pharmaceuticals and school system would imprint me. I lost my connection with nature, and didn’t know who I was...trust me, it’s a common story, for it is playing out for humanity.
Now I realize that it is part of my function to have gone through such suffering and flickering awareness. And that as I come to remember who I am and retrace my footsteps in the stars, as I clear my self and heal my body, as I eat organic foods and walk barefoot in the sunkissed land, as I align my work with the divine purpose that is coming through me….I embody medicine for humanity, for the planet. There is a sacred purpose to why everything happens the way it happens. Being reminded of this, since we don’t always remember, gives us hope, and helps us to see that we live in a friendly universe.
Gary R. Smith Beautifully expressed, Joshua Faust. And there is so much more behind the words than in them. May I reprint them on the Whole Human blog?
Gary R. Smith Your expression (over the video) feels sweet and pure to me. I love what you are doing and who you are.
I have visited 'Into the Mythica' a few times, just browsing around, and don't fully understand what it is about. The words sound good but I haven't found practical application or ways to participate. After reading, I have asked myself, 'What is it saying?' Yet I still feel drawn to you, your work and to look for opportunities for co-creation if you have interest.
Joshua Faust Thank you for your feedback Gary , it is much appreciated. We are working on that, it is quite an undertaking actually. Everything I'm sharing here is just practice in the grander scheme of things. Into the Mythica is going to be an entirely new form of media, so I get why it can be hard to understand. Where we focus on our lives as heroic journeys from ignorance to the realization of the majesty within us, and that there is a real progression to get from one realm of being to another, such as from scarcity to abundance. Basically we are a cast of authors framing our lives as transformational tales. We are sharing the gift of our own Revelations.
And then this extends into the academy, where we are currently working on creating and gathering courses that teach the subtle arts of personal transformation. There is an entire multimedia publishing platform that is coming into being, the likes of which has never been seen before. Eventually there will be an entire magical marketplace and social network. It's a big vision, currently we need help with funding, to continue building out the thing, and allies who want to help with marketing when the time is right, along with contributing to the Academy through classes that are aligned with our vision.
On that note, i am open to further dialogue and am interested in hearing feedback on how we could make the explanation clearer
Gary R Smith
What a wonderful, inspiring vision! Saw you linked a video in PM, may not be able to watch it until later..... My first thought about making the explanation clearer is well, I had to visit https://intothemythica.com/ again. The graphics and text are nice, but I feel the person who's landed on the site for the first time needs to get oriented. A short overview/description on the home page or linked to it. A sharing of your vision somewhere. More intuitive navigation through the site. Thanks for being open! I have a thought about our creating something together. Maybe the Heart Space Breathing practice designed through my hand could be part of the academy.
Joshua Faust Absolutely, I sent you a message. we all share this vision. That's the larger story of shared unfoldment, that we come to remember that we are all connected. Peter Fae shared with me the Atlas of Story, a way of seeing our stories as an interconnected web of synchronicity that reveals our shared destiny...we truly are all receiving a vision that is larger than our individual selves https://intothemythica.com/atlas/
Gary R Smith That is very interesting, Joshua.
From my perspective of being deeply engaged with the design of Heart Space Breathing, and new still to learning what 'Into the Mythica' means for its authors, I see immediately a connection between the two.
The 'Atlas of Story, a way of seeing our stories as an interconnected web of synchronicity that reveals our shared destiny...we truly are all receiving a vision that is larger than our individual selves' -- fits well with the mystical aspect of HSB -- such as having conversations with a stone about 'cooperative networks of conscious particles' as the foundation of all that is and experimenting with ways to integrate human life with the conscious particle networks.
Definitely the 'conversations' have expanded my experience of the Whole Net, or what I fondly call O.B., the One Being. The practice helps me go from 'stories as an interconnected web of synchronicity that reveals our shared destiny' -- to a philosophical concept of the interconnected web throughout all energy/matter -- to a practice designed to expand one's daily life experience of the Whole Net and to enable one to take impulses from the One Being. I would love to have your feedback on HSB, on what could make it even more effective in each person's life.
