Breaking Illusions in 2015

Make it your goal to break free from the human condition this year. You will go far in your spiritual journey if you can begin to see the illusoriness of our material sense of time and space.

The short video below illustrates how deceptively suggestive our human sense perception can be — how we are easily fooled by the appearances of things. Click the image to view the video.*

TIME is an illusion… to accommodate our human sense perception of things, so that we can experience them in sequential context. Without the illusion of time, everything would exist simultaneously in a state of pure chaos — without order, incomprehensible to the human mind, and devoid of any meaningful experience whatsoever.

The Illusion of Time (and a New Year)

Without time (and space) we would not be able to appreciate and enjoy our favorite food items and meals. Our taste buds would overload and blowout their fuse with the confusion of clashing and conflicting tastes, as we gorge on all kinds of food altogether at the same time.

Without time, we would not be able to discern the fragrance of a rose from the sweet scent of jasmine. We would not have changing seasons in a year. There would be no growth or progress or change of any kind.

Without time, love between parents and their children would not be possible. Parental love is made possible because parents precede their children in time and causal existence. By the same token, filial love is made possible because children come into existence at a later point in time subsequent to their parents’ births.

Make time your friend and helper in every situation. Let time allow you to savor the changing experience of things through its flow, by releasing awareness to the flow of time’s fleeting present moments. Let time reveal to you the timeless truth that You are FOREVER.

Every day of the New Year is the unraveling of God’s perfect and infinite good for you, because the Allness of God includes any moment or period of time, and the Mind of God constitutes the fabric of all time.

Every second, minute, hour, day, week, month, or year of your life is lived constantly in the presence of God, because God lives Its life in you, through you, as you. Rejoice then that the New Year is filled with God’s presence and will bring you only God’s infinite love and perfect good. Knowing this, you and I can knowingly say that we are going to have a truly prosperous, blessed and grace-filled HAPPY NEW YEAR!

We may know that, but do we feel it?

The secret of fulfillment lies in feeling —

The secret of fulfillment lies in feeling — PURE FEELING. If we have a pure feeling of the truth we know in consciousness, then we can rest in the unwavering knowingness of its fulfillment or realization in our experience. The secret of fulfillment lies in feeling the peace and stillness of God’s presence as your only good, and in resting completely in that feeling. It is the same feeling you have when you are resting deeply in God’s presence during meditation. You have that feeling when you have broken through the illusion of appearances and your circumstances, when you finally see the Truth beyond them. It is the peace that surpasses all human understanding.

Wallpaper for wish fulfillment.

May you find spiritual freedom from the human condition in 2015 by breaking your illusions; and may you realize that all the good there is in 2015 and in all the years to come thereafter, already IS. Have a fulfilling New Year!

If you abide in Me, and My words abide in you, you will ask what you desire, and it shall be done for you.
(Yeshua at John 15:7, NKJV)

About Marc of Contemplative Pathways

Marc teaches contemplative meditation in the context of "contemporary mysticism" under the style of "Contemplative Pathways." His spiritual work is backed by a profound understanding of mystical teachings and the mystical life, that is rooted in fifty (50) years of personal study, practice and spiritual unfoldment (inner realization and spiritual experience).  In the course of his spiritual journey, he has received the gifts of mystical discernment and spiritual transmission. Marc has been conducting classes and meetings on contemporary mysticism and meditation at the San Francisco Bay Area for over fifteen years, usually in a classroom, lecture, seminar, workshop, online meeting, or group practice setting. He has facilitated study groups and workshops for centering/contemplative meditation practice meetings since the 1980s. Marc's teaching work meaningfully shifts consciousness in students through the process of spiritual transmission and mystical transformation.  He enables others to embark on the spiritual journey by understanding the Truth teaching and by living its principles in their daily lives. His methodology of instruction is divinely inspired and firmly rooted in pure, authentic mysticism.  Marc's approach to the subject of contemporary mysticism is essentially nondenominational, nonsectarian, culturally interfaith, transreligious, definitively unitive, and unequivocally nondualistic. Within the context of the great shift in consciousness presently occurring all over the planet, Marc’s work focuses on individual and collective spiritual instruction and transformation. He promotes the practice of contemplation or meditation as the vehicle for spiritual transcendence and ascension to the higher dimensions of mystical consciousness. His other contributions to worldwide spiritual awakening and the global contemplative movement include spiritual mentoring, spiritual direction, and spiritual healing work. Marc is firmly committed to the vision of a global spiritual awakening and the divine promise of humanity’s mystical illumination. His brand of mysticism is the only true contemporary mysticism born of 21st century illumination and spirituality.
