FEELING THE CONNECTION
What matters most to me is not where I am or what I have, but feeling the Connection while breathing clean air, enjoying a gentle breeze or stormy wind, sensing the warmth of sunshine or cold of rain on my skin, hearing birds singing and crickets chirping and cows mooing, watching the sun rising and setting and the clouds forming and shifting across the blue sky by day, and drifting across the moon by night.
What matters is maintaining a steadiness within, knowing I Am the sun and moon of consciousness watching the shifting, drifting, clouds of my emotions and the ever-changing shapes of manifest form. I still get caught up sometimes in world events, but more and more I live from inner peace.
What are the distinctions between feeling physical sensations and feeling the Connection? Sensations are felt over the senses in a physical process involving the brain and nervous system. Whereas, feeling the Connection with AllThatIs happens as an expansion on subtle levels of essence, as an intimacy between localized and non-localized consciousness. The two — feeling physical sensations and feeling the Connection — can be intertwined.
BE THE LIGHT
These words (which help me every day maintain steadiness within) may be recited by rote, so long as needed to start. They are meant to be repeated by intuition rather than repetition, and must be felt to be effective. There's no set order, and other wording can be substituted.
They can be spoken aloud to oneself or in thought, as often as possible. I combine the mantras over the day with a moving meditation which strengthens the sphere and stretches body and mind. The effectiveness of these practices is an individual measurement: am I calmer, more peaceful, more confident, more caring, more connecting, more at home in myself. My ultimate measurement is a private experiment.
PRAISE: 'All praise to the Source I Am, the all-inclusive One.'
Am I Source? Of course! Nothing is outside Source in actuality.
Is Gary R. Smith the Source in totality? Of course not! He is Source, in a bubble of apparent separation.
GRATITUDE: 'All gratitude for AllThatIs, as it is, and for what IsNot.'
'What is not' refers to the pure potential inherent within infinite intelligence, the unmanifest within the manifest and intangible within the tangible.
LOVE: 'Love for Love Itself is all that I Am.'
I visualize with feeling the toroidal plasma sphere filling and encompassing me, while saying this. The ancient Greeks had eight different words for love, from eros to agape. To me, the essence of the plasma sphere I Am is most closely aligned with agape love. The application of this to daily life and relationships is over compassion.
COMPASSION: 'Feeling connection with AllThatIs, the Source I Am acts through me.'
BREATH: 'Breathe the Sphere, be the Light. Breathe the Light, be the Sphere.'
According to some, love in physics can be understood as a free-flowing toroidal sphere of plasma light — and plasma as liquid electricity. Its actions in human terms generally are for the good (nourishment, protection, growth, thriving, betterment, evolution) of the whole.
A question which only Gary can answer is, 'Can I create something new such as a materialized, conscious 'sphere of light' vehicle which endures beyond the veil?' Immortality is not my motive — giving earth and humanity another option is, even if incredibly naive. I mean, why not?
On one of our many moves between the States and Europe, probably around 2012, one night while sleeping 🛌 in Germany, I had a dream-vision of rising above the earth in a sphere of light. It was nothing like the geometric merkaba, just a plain sphere of light. Others and I rose from a beach area below rocky cliffs. On October 11 last week, I landed bodily on Santa Maria, a Portuguese island in the volcanic archipelago of the Azores (sometimes called the remnant of Atlantis). Never been here before, this lifetime. On walks I have been haunted with the feeling that these are the beaches and cliffs of my dream, in the same muted light.
