Recently the term 'spiritual empowerment' came into my field.
'Spiritual empowerment' means to me 'activating latent qualities which boost the manifestation of my authentic self.'
Any choices I make or actions I take which turn up the juice and brighten the light from within into my physical existence, are spiritually empowered.
What is not Spirit? The illusion of matter as perceived by the matrix-captured conditioned mind.
Spirit to me is Essence — the tapestry fabric of all probabilities, the First Thought (emanation) of the One Being. It is 'what I am.'
The distinction between personal empowerment and spiritual empowerment is in living from the conditioned 'who I am' or from the essential 'what I am.'
'Spiritual Empowerment' means to many relying on something outside of oneself. Therefore I like the term 'Essential Empowerment.'
The light of Spirit or Essence is always there. Manifesting the constant sun of the Absolute, an undifferentiated emanation of Essence, through layers (in awareness) of 3D relativity is my spiritual/essential empowerment and evolution.
Tom Minderle (Montalk) asks in one of his articles:
What are your deepest priorities?
What brings you the greatest fulfillment?
What motivates your existence?
What completes you as a being?
Besides feeling that nothing can complete me as a being, since Being is inherently complete, I reflected on the questions. Pondering in the midst of the Heart Breathing Moving Meditation, I heard in the inner voice, 'to live the orgasm of the moment' as an answer.
It was as though I was on the verge of feeling the orgasm of the moment in the movements of the meditation.
Later, more answers, interchangeable between the questions, came:
Living the Orgasm of the Moment
Riding the Current of the One
Hearing the Hum of What I Am
Being the Essence
The 'orgasm of the moment' was a new phrase to me. While writing later, it came to me that the 'Orgasm of the Moment' is the same as my 'Riding the Current of the One.'
At times during toning in the Heart Breathing Moving Meditation, I hear or feel the 'Hum of What I Am.' No, it is not just the tinnitus!
'Being the Essence' is another facet or nuance of the same. Any of the phrases can be applied during the day, to remind myself, pull my attention back to what is essential, and boost the light of my authentic self to shine through the layers a little more.
Relationship is in one sense my deepest priority. Manifesting my authentic self is the best I can do for relationship and for all areas of my life.
Over the years the realization of what my authentic self is has expanded and deepened. Its actuality is not found in superficial awareness. In the Heart Breathing Moving Meditation, that pure light of my being penetrates further into my cellular awareness. It extends into my everyday life in my choices and actions, in my movement 'From Reaction to Response.'
Montalk asks, 'What is the Matrix?' and answers, 'It is the totality of forces and mechanisms that aim to keep us spiritually asleep.'
An effective practice pierces the Matrix veil and allows the light of the purest authentic self to shine through my body-mind. That is my version of essential/spiritual empowerment.
