This is my first article on the series of channeled books by Paul Selig. I'll be writing up my thoughts and approach to the books in order to help others understand and to spread the work as best I can. I feel these books are the most important spiritual works of our time and have the potential to enable mankind to redeem the world, to recreate it in divine image.
I realize this sounds lofty, far-fetched, dreamy, or plain ridiculous. My hope is that with these articles an understanding of how this could happen is revealed. The books themselves do an excellent job, so I highly, highly recommend picking them up. Like most spiritual works, they are meant to be read slowly.
The book is a channeled text, Paul Selig takes time from his day to align to what he calls "the guides" who near the start of the book call themselves "the ascended masters." That might scare a few of you off, but I implore you to give the words a chance. If you think it's a hoax I recommend checking Paul out on youtube.
I hope I can do justice to the work and help illuminate the teaching, the first book is I Am the Word, let's dive in...
When we talk about Christ, we will be clear now, we talk about Christ as a creation of the God Self inhabiting man in its fullness.
[...] once you bypass the religion and you understand that the Christ is a consciousness, is a frequency, is an offering to man from the Creator to align to, then you have a very different experience of understanding who you are.
Everything vibrates in a frequency.
The Christ has been misinterpreted throughout time as a man, Jesus. But Jesus was just an example of a manifestation of the Christ in fullness.
The message of the Christ teaching was this(self identity as the Christ) in completeness and it has been regarded as something other, and as parable, for far too long.
When we go back and read some of the writings of Jesus and his disciples, the words take on new meaning.
I and the father are one.
Jesus the man, and the God frequency, the Christ, are in alignment.
This teaching has been available to us, we just haven't had the eyes to see, the ears to hear.
The manifestation of Christ in man has remained primarily an ideal for the last two thousand years. That has been the ideal that has not made itself fully known, fully realized, fully understood, although the teachings that would have enabled this to be so are present in every religion on this planet.
The teachings are present, they've been around and have been revived by contemporary teachers as well. Teachings from Jesus, Guatama Buddha, Lao Tse, Adyashanti, Mooji, Rupert Spira, Jean Klein, Sri Ramana Maharshi, Krishnamurti, Francis Lucille, etc are all pointing us towards this realization. These are not men to be worshipped, they are beings to learn from.
But we are too busy making excuses for why we are separate, why we aren't worthy. We are afraid of what we truly are, we are afraid to confront the darkness, to release the guilt and shame, to let go of the past. We cling to our history, we use our history to define us. Instead of knowing who and what we are, we think, we create our self image out of our history and we recreate it based on our history rather than our being everyday.
We say to ourselves: "I'm out of shape, I need to get in better shape before I'm worthy, I don't give enough, I need to make enough money to be charitable before I'm worthy, I don't make anything of worth, I don't help anyone, I'm selfish, how can I be worthy of love? I haven't made a name for myself, I made a mistake, I hurt people."
All of this is an excuse is an excuse and a way for the ego to prevent the self from releasing its power to the creator.
We stop ourselves from realization! Most of us are so caught up in our minds we don't even give the truth a chance to surface. Even those of us who consider themselves spiritual wonder "what do I do? How do I become enlightened?" And we go about trying. We set our focus, we observe ourselves, we make an effort to try to become what we already are.
Once we understand the Christ as a vibration, we can align our being to it through intention. Intending to align ourselves to the Christ frequency and then being receptive to it is the only doing.
Once aligned, the world transforms before our very eyes.
I say this out of experience. I don't know that I aligned to Christ consciousness, but it sure seemed like it when I used pscilocybin mushrooms. My level of consciousness was far beyond my day to day level, and the way I comprehended the world, perceived everything, sight, touch, hearing, intuition, everything changed. I became intimately aware of everything I came into contact with. My body changed, the landscape spoke to me in a way that allowed me to move through it effortlessly.
All I can say about operating at this level is that it is beyond words, it is magnificent, everything, including myself, became Godstuff. When I first read The Book of Mastery, which I actually read first, I knew immediately that it was the closest thing to describing my experience, or rather a start of how to reside in that consciousness.
I remember during one of those trips in the mountains I had this feeling or thought that everyone would be at that level. I truly hope that is the case, it would transform the world, empower people, show them their true worth. Residing in this consciousness is the greatest gift one could receive in my opinion.
This set of books, these guides say now is the time to realize the truth of who and what we are...
