Commit to Awakening

“The Way of Transformation is much simpler than you think.  But again, it rests on your decision to use time to be wholly committed to awakening from the narrow constraints you have placed upon your vast field of consciousness.  For no other reason than that it might be rather entertaining to allow this tiny little ray to continue in space and time for a while, while being aware of the totality of your Self and actually operating from that totality.”  (“The Way of Transformation,” WOM, Chapter 13, Page 160)

This quotation suggests that we have something to do with the timing of our Awakening.  God makes the decision, as A Course in Miracles tells us.  But we must remove the blocks to the awareness of love, the blocks of fear and judgment, as A Course of Love tells us.  This quotation, from The Way of Mastery, seems to say that if we let our consciousness expand, removing the constraints we have placed on it, we will make progress toward Awakening.  We might stay on this earth, in space and time, but we would draw on the larger Self who is beyond our little persona/personality.  This larger Self is merged not only with God, but with other people, too.  Our brothers and sisters are in this with us.

These thoughts demand some concentration.  If we can walk peacefully to a transformation, an Awakening or Christ-consciousness or enlightenment, we will be walking toward the goal of The Way of Mastery.  This is the next step in our evolution.  We need to take this next step.

Our world needs a comprehensive reawakening.  Let us focus on staying calm (no fears) and giving everyone some slack (being non-judgmental).  If we can do that much, we will have made progress that we may not even comprehend until the moment that we sense God’s presence in lifting us up into Awakening.

    Hi Celia,
    All things you speak about are wonderful and so truthful, but I just want to ask Celia that in this awakening you speak of will we change form from the physical to some other matter? I guess I want to know whether I am moving in the right direction or does it even matter at all my need for confirmation?

      The Awakening (as called in A Course in Miracles) does not mean an after-death experience. It is right here and now, in the physical. More people are able to reach this now, for reasons that are not clear. Most people on a spiritual pathway get glimpses of Awakening, times when they are especially mellow and feel loving. As time passes, the glimpses will elongate, and then, one day, God will “reach down” and lift up to Awakening. You will know when this happens. I hope this is helpful. Love, Celia
