We had an online discussion on Saturday, Nov. 3rd with Grace Bubeck to explore the intersection between Nonduality and the Christ Consciousness Transmissions my wife, Gina Lake, and I offer every Sunday. Here is the page on Grace's website with all of the info: http://www.living-from-love.com/gina-lake-and-nirmala.html

About the Event:

We explored the intersection of non-duality and Gina’s and Nirmala’s latest offering: Christ Consciousness transmissions. Transmissions from teacher to student or devotee have always been part of that transformational relationship. But what about transmissions from Jesus and other Ascended Masters? Is that also valid, and what does that have to do with non-duality?
The event has two parts: the first part was a conversation between Grace, Gina, and Nirmala, and the second part was an open space for people to ask questions or share their experience. Length: 90 mins.
 

About Gina:

Gina Lake is a non-dual spiritual teacher and the author of over twenty books about awakening to one’s true nature. She is also a gifted channel with a master's degree in Counseling Psychology and over 25 years’ experience supporting people in their spiritual growth. In 2012, Jesus began dictating books through her. These teachings from Jesus are based on universal, non-dual truth, not on any religion. Then, in November of 2017, Jesus asked Gina and her husband, Nirmala, who is also a non-dual spiritual teacher, to offer Christ Consciousness transmissions to groups online, which they’ve been doing every Sunday since then. Gina’s website offers information about her books and online course, a free e-book, and audio and video recordings: www.RadicalHappiness.com.
 

About Nirmala:

After a lifetime of spiritual seeking, Nirmala met his teacher, Neelam, a devotee of H.W.L. Poonja (Papaji). She convinced him that seeking wasn't necessary; and after experiencing a profound spiritual awakening in India, he began offering satsang and Non-dual Spiritual Mentoring with Neelam's blessing. Satsang is offered as a celebration of the possibility, in every moment, of recognizing the truth of who we are. Nirmala has a unique vision and a gentle, compassionate approach, which adds to this rich tradition of inquiry into the truth of Being. Nirmala's website offers free e-books, info about non-dual spiritual mentoring and many audios and videos of his teaching: endless-satsang.com.

What Christ Consciousness Transmission Is and Is Not

on .

I read the following during our Christ Consciousness Transmission (CCT) this week to explain what Christ Consciousness is and how the transmissions work:

We call this Christ Consciousness Transmission, so I wanted to say a little bit about what Christ Consciousness is and is not. Christ Consciousness is a higher dimension or aspect of consciousness. Even though it is called Christ Consciousness, it does not belong to Jesus even though he experienced it in his life on earth very fully, and he continues to experience it very fully now. And in the same sense, it does not belong to anyone here today, although everyone here today has an equal capacity and potential to experience it.

When we say that we are transmitting Christ Consciousness, it really just means that Gina and I, Peter and Jenai, and all of the ascended masters that participate in this gathering (including Jesus, Mother Mary, Yogananda, Anandamayi Ma, and several others) are experiencing this higher consciousness to such a degree that we also act as antenna and transmit it to others. But to some degree, every one of you on this call will experience the same higher consciousness and so you will also naturally and inherently transmit it to others, including your family, friends and acquaintances. And everyone on this call can to varying degrees even embody this dimension of consciousness.

Once you have experienced this Christ Consciousness, then you will also naturally have the ability to connect to it anytime. So you can tap into it during the rest of the week and under any circumstances. Simply by holding the thought of Christ Consciousness, you will to some degree connect to it and experience it.

These gatherings are simply an enhanced opportunity to connect in this way. The 27 ascended masters and others from higher dimensions that assist on these meetings work with each person here individually to provide just what is needed to more fully awaken and heal each of you. They have shared that they literally duplicate themselves to give you exactly and specifically what you need. This can be both a direct transmission of higher consciousness and/or a clearing of any blocks or conditioning that might be limiting your ability to connect with and ultimately embody and live as this higher consciousness.

No one here owns this Christ Consciousness because it is ultimately a fundamental aspect of who and what you are. Do you own awareness? Or do you share it with every other being? It is both your birthright and your unlimited potential to experience Christ Consciousness and to know it as a fundamental part of your true nature, and it is our deepest wish and intention that these gatherings support and enhance your innate ability to experience and live this capacity to its fullest potential.

We offer the CCT every Sunday at 11:00 am Pacific time. More info is here.

We also just received this testimonial from someone who has been joining us:

“I have tried at least four or five times to start a letter to thank you for the wonderful Christ transmissions, but I fall short each time as I can never find the appropriate words. I used to just hope I would be able to join you every Sunday, but now it's a weekly priority of mine. It's way better than any other Sunday service I have ever attended. For me, the transmissions give me a great sense of calmness, and I feel I'm exactly where I'm supposed to be, and I am learning that peace of mind is no small thing. So, I bow down to you both, and I humbly offer my thanks.” –C.

Who Am I? Regardless of Where Am I?

on .

Q: It's been about 3 years since I was introduced to Sri Ramana's  'Who Am I' document with the 11 questions.  Honestly though, it was a tough first read and I have sought those who are recognized as being experts in 'translating' Maharshi's  words into more understandable language. My 'Who Am I' has morphed into 'What Am I'.  It seems using the word 'who' activates not only a sense of identity, but along with it a location.

The location is what doesn't shake loose when I look inside.  I have had many and now increasingly more experiences of getting past the 'Me', not not past the location.  Whatever's happening is happening 'here'. Whatever isn't happening brings me to a place that 'suggests' no location.  But the conversation seems to hinge around where these experiences are taking place? I have yet to have a conscious location-less experience.  I don't know if that's really important though or if that's just my mind looking for an enlightenment 'event'  Whatever it is that's going on in this individuated consciousness location,  it is plain to see that the human aspect has been greatly transformed over a period of time.

Since my nature is infinite, then I will never reach the end of me, so there is no rush to make anything happen although  my mind is convinced that something should 'happen'. Your thoughts?

A: I also find it helpful to ask the inquiry question in different forms. There are many more suggestions for possible forms of the self-inquiry question in this article on my website: http://endless-satsang.com/the-practice-and-purpose-of-self-inquiry.htm

As for the sense of location, that is probably going to mostly persist as long as you are still in a body. It obviously is practically advantageous to orient to the location of the body most of the time. However, the nature of awareness or consciousness itself is the same whether it is in a location, has no location, or is experienced as an expanded or infinite location, just as water is still wet whether it is in an ocean or in a teacup. You can still explore "Who or what am I?" regardless of "Where am I?"

So I would suggest you simply continue exploring the sense of me as it is appearing in each moment and not worry to much about the location it is appearing in. However, you can also experiment with inquiring more into the actual nature of this apparent "location". For example, you can ask where does the sense of "me" stop and something else begin? Is there a definite boundary or is it hard to find an exact edge to the "me"? And similarly, where does awareness actually stop? If you see or hear an airplane miles away, where does awareness stop and something else called unawareness begin? Or how about when you look up at the stars at night? And are you sure that awareness does not extend even beyond your physical senses? Can you sense the presence of the vastness of space even if you cannot see all of it? Where does this infinite space stop and something else called "me" begin? Or is the "me" actually just more space? Or is the space just more "me"?

These different kinds of questions may or may not give you a different experience of the location of the me, but they may at least soften the boundaries that we hold in our minds. There are no boundaries in awareness itself as it is truly one thing.

You may also enjoy some of the awareness exercises offered in the Headless Way of Douglas Harding if you are not familiar with them: http://www.headless.org/experiments.htm

As for your mind's sense that something "should happen", I will simply point to an experiential definition of the truth: the truth is what opens or expands your heart or sense of self and quiets the mind. Something that is less true has the opposite effect and contracts your sense of self and makes your mind busier. Does the idea that "something should happen" open and expand your sense of self, or does it contract you? This may even be a rhetorical question as I have almost never had a thought that includes a "should" open or soften my sense of being :)

I hope this is helpful.
