The Attack on America - A Call for Higher Consciousness

"I was able to stop spending so much time doing mental gymnastics trying to figure out what is right and what is wrong.  I was able to take power away from the polarized thinking - and the feelings of toxic shame.  I was gradually able to accept my imperfect humanness - so that I wasn't judging and shaming myself - increasingly larger percentages of the time.

What I discovered is that I do not have to trust me.  I just need to trust the process.  By trusting that there is a Higher Power who is Unconditionally Loving and All-Powerful - and doing my part as the co-creator of my life - I have been able to relax and start enjoying life to an extent that I had never imagined possible."

"My focus over the years of recovery (January 3rd 2002 will mark 18 years) was my quest to find a concept of a Higher Power that was Loving.  I felt so much shame about my being that I had to find a really huge, powerful concept to start opening up to the possibility that I might be lovable.  At the same time I was searching to find a Higher Power, I was desperately seeking to understand my own internal process so I could stop suffering and wanting to die.

My paradigm for understanding life took huge leaps, first with Richard Bach's Illusions - and then later when I started reading about quantum physics.  There were many small leaps along the path - different sources that shattered some aspect of my ego definitions and caused me to enlarge my intellectual paradigm in relationship to some aspect of life - but those two were the largest single influences in the expansion of my perspective of the macrocosm, my view of the larger Cosmic puzzle."

"None of the details of any of these explanations of the unexplainable should be taken too seriously or literally - it is impossible to describe the indescribable.  They are merely tools to facilitate a paradigm shift in consciousness - to help us open up to larger definitions of the Creation than those we were taught in childhood.  The goal here is to empower a more expansive context within which to view the dance of life - one which allows for a perspective of human existence that does not include shame and sin."
"I was explaining to someone in a phone counseling session the other day, about how important I believe a Loving Spiritual belief system is in recovery.  She said, but that is just a crutch, you are just playing a mind trick on yourself.

I said, so what.  It works.  Who can know what the Ultimate Truth really is?  Not me.  I choose a belief system that helps make my life easier and more enjoyable today.  That works for me. That is the bottom line - it is functional.

I also happen to believe it is the Truth.  What I have discovered as I kept surrendering and enlarging my paradigm - is that each new level I arrived at made perfect logical sense.  I have to surrender to the intuitive, emotional side in order to reach a higher perspective, that I can then see makes perfect sense in a rational logical way.

That is how I have arrived at a more balanced way of living life, at a way that makes life a lot more enjoyable.  If god really is judgmental and punishing, I will find out soon enough - that doesn't mean I have to let it mess up my life today. ;-)"

Attack on America - A Call for Higher Consciousness

by Robert Burney

Age of Atonement

Each and every one of us has an inner channel.  We now have the capability to atone - which means tune into - to atone, to tune into the Higher Consciousness.  To tune into the Higher vibrational emotional energies that are Joy, Light, Truth, Beauty, and Love.

We can tune into the Truth of "at ONE ness."  Atone = at ONE.  Atonement = at ONE ment, in a condition of ONENESS.

We now have access to the highest vibrational frequencies - we can tune into the Truth of ONENESS.  By aligning with Truth we are tuning into the higher energy vibrations that reconnect us with the Truth of ONENESS.

This is the age of atonement, but it does not have anything to do with judgment and punishment.  It has to do with tuning our inner channel into the right frequencies.

But our inner channel is blocked and cluttered with repressed emotional energy and dysfunctional attitudes.  The more we clear our inner channel through aligning with Truth attitudinally, and releasing the repressed emotional energy through the grief process, the clearer we can tune into the music of Love and Joy, Light and Truth.

(Text in this color are quotes from Codependence: The Dance of Wounded Souls by Robert Burney)

. . . . . . My job is to show up for life today and pay attention.  I learned to pay attention to what gets my attention without judging myself.  The Universe uses whatever works to get my attention and to motivate me to follow where it wants me to go.  The things that get my attention most effectively usually have to do with my human desires - with longings and unfulfilled needs. Which led to the second part of what I found was so important - to let go of the outcome.  To let go of assuming, interpreting, fortune telling, projecting my fantasy of where I was going to end up, based upon what carrot the Universe used to get my attention. . . . . . .

being a clear channel

When I do my writing, or my counseling / therapy work, I am able to access what I think of as sacred space. . . . . . .

. . . . . . This is the age of atonement, and what we are learning to do is tune into Love and Truth.  To judge and shame ourselves for where we are at in our own individual process - on our own personal path - is not Loving.  It is by being Loving to ourselves through having patience and faith, through acceptance and surrendering to the Divine Plan, that we gradually clear our inner channel and tune more clearly into intuitive guidance. . . . . .
