A Witness from Heaven

I am a new being by the power of the inward Light re-placing how I am conscious and the direction from which my conscience is informed. My identity and self-conscious rests completely in the Light itself. It has taken years, yet the Light has open my being to the clarity of life independent of the outward religious, political, governmental, institutional, theological, and ideological, abstractions that once overlaid my conscious and conscience. I now live largely a life free from these outward forms. I do not have faith in them, my hope is in another place ... the Light itself that fills and sustains in every moment and event.

Jesus Christ is come again within me and Heaven is right now and in this place. I AM and there is no predication.

I no longer seek community because community is everywhere and anywhere I AM. Heaven is my community and everyone I meet in my daily life I meet on the streets of heaven ... even those who are unaware of the City that is all around them. My community exists just by my living the Life. It is ever present and it does not fade .. it is heaven.

I AM is come again and I AM speaks in all things and the new Life in Heaven is present in the Light itself that illuminates the conscious and informs the conscience.

I AM is heaven and I speak to you from the eternal garden itself knowing that we all know the eternal garden in our journeys.

While I write, a man walking his dog greets me. I greet him and the Light fills my being and we talk and I Am in Presence itself and hold this man in the Light by being in Presence. This man is of my community and I his, and the Kingdom is around us and there is Peace.

We part and I AM in gratitude for communion with him in Presence itself. I AM in thanksgiving that Jesus Christ is come again and I AM a citizen of the community of Heaven.

Keith, this is radiating Light and Life into me.

I would have to assume from the above that you dropped your lawsuit against your former meeting.  I am glad you have seen that being in the world but not of it means not allowing yourself to be caught up in the quagmire of man made institutions, traditions and laws.  I only wish I could reach that point myself but it's still a sweet but far off hymn to this earth bound soul.

James, I'm not sure what you mean by a lawsuit against my former meeting. I have never sued anyone or any institution in my life.

My apologies.  I must have mixed you up with someone else.  I should have double checked my records.

All is well friend. Your words:

"I am glad you have seen that being in the world but not of it means not allowing yourself to be caught up in the quagmire of man made institutions, traditions and laws."

The power of Presence within me has saved me from the quagmire of man made institutions, traditions and laws. The inward Spirit is truly a blessing overflowing in all things and in all moment. It is so precious when that eternal Life transforms circumstances into an opportunity for praise.

Diane, Isn't it wonderful to experience being wherein the inward Light is greater than the outward shadows that (by their very nature) would overlay our perception of Glory! To walk daily in the world and know heaven and eternal life. To no longer depend on our own intellect or the intellect of others to know of the Life because through the immediate experience of Life itself, we see and understand. What a gift of glory, through direct intuitive experience, in the Light within and to see in a new Light.

It is a blessing to be in fellowship with you as a Child of Light. It is likewise a blessing to encourage one another through Christs spirit within.

Your brother, gathered with you in the Light of Christ who is come again,

Keith

Yes, Keith, it is wonderful to be in the Light and to be gathered there with you and others who are conscious of where they are.  The hard part is seeing those who depend on those outward things struggling with all the turmoil and uncertainty.  I’m reminded of the words of Jesus, “How often I wanted to gather your children together, as a hen gathers her brood under her wings, but you were not willing!”

Keith, This is so beautifully expressed.  May we use this as a springboard to our weekly spiritual discussion at my meeting this coming Sunday.  We call it "Circle of Friends" and it is each Sunday morning before our hour-long expectant-waiting worship.

I had just expressed to my wife moments ago, before reading your post, that "we must focus on Love and Light. Everything else in this world is fleeting and ultimately of no real substance."

Comment by Keith Saylor on 9th mo. 14, 2015 at 10:54am
Howard. Sure you may use it anyway you wish. I only wish I were there to be a part of the Circle of Friends. Your words about focusing on Love and Light encouraged and challenged me toward watchfullness in all things.

Bless you.

Keith, have you ever read "A Course in Miracles" - a very popular spiritual work penned in the mid-1970s.  It expands on the Christian concepts you express in your beautiful, mystical post "A Witness from Heaven".  Only two books have greatly influenced my life through enhanced spirituality.  "A Course in Miracles" is one of them.  The other is "Tao Te Ching" by Lao-tzu (Stephen Mitchell’s translation is the best in my opinion).  Both are deeply spiritual and life changing, and can be found at Amazon or online at no cost at http://courseinmiracles.com/ and http://acc6.its.brooklyn.cuny.edu/~phalsall/texts/taote-v3.html
