This Week’s Quotation:
What is possible for a person and what is potential in this world might seem to be a dream relating to some future time. What is possible might seem to be nonexistent, something that might take form here one day in the world as it is. But when we touch real possibility or potential, we are not just touching something that could manifest here. We are sensing an already-existing reality at another level of Being. There is an already-existing glory. There is truth and beauty before it ever manifests in a world that is perceptible by our internal intuition. This realm of potential holds the essence of what could manifest in physical form.
The realm of potential is the realm of angels, using that word to acknowledge that this is a range not just of energy, not just of higher consciousness, but of higher Being.
~ Becoming a Sun p. 208
The Realm of Angels
Are you finding the veil is thinning? Are you easily becoming aware of higher ranges of Reality—a higher love and a higher intelligence? And perhaps the awareness that it is not just us humans in the space, that there is a higher Presence here with us?
If you consider yourself a Christian, perhaps you feel like Jesus is always near. If you are a Muslim, you may believe that Allah is omnipresent.
In one translation of the Quran, Allah says this:
Surely We have created man, and We know the promptings of his heart, and We are nearer to him than even his jugular vein.
That sounds pretty near!
Indigenous culture often names the higher Presence as the ancestors, implying that they were in the flesh once. And I suppose that all of us humans can look forward to being ancestors one day.
While I honor the experience of a higher Presence that a person might have through a religious practice, I am not speaking of religion. I am speaking of the awareness that there is a reality that hovers about us all the time. And that reality is at least as important to you as the people in your life. It has been with you always, and it will never leave you.
Angels are hovering.
What does it mean to become a sun?
Every human being is already a sun on the inside—a being of intense love and light. The difference is that some people have the vision and courage to become a sun on the outside. This difference is our human destiny.
