The raw Gaia Portal update is first, followed by my extrapolated meanings in black.
Collapses of essentials are observed and surpassed.
Fluencies are enabled as rhymes are validated.
Corollaries of Light come to play.
The Force of Love is experienced in full.
Interpretations: “Collapses of essentials are observed and surpassed.” – The term essential refers to something that is absolutely necessary to achieve a desired effect or to properly characterize a person, place or thing. For example, an essential part of change is catalyst, or; an essential part of personal manifestation is imagination, or; the body is an essential part of the experience of walking in the woods. The key aspect to essentials is that taking them away fundamentally changes the thing in question. Within this statement, the essentials are collapsing, which by the nature of what an essential is, means that the thing to which it applies is also changing.
For example, when we lack mental coherence with the body and spiritual realities, we are energetically cut off from the universe at large. This condition is caused by separation consciousness or maintaining beliefs, a subjective experience, or a point of view which is less than universal. In this case, one who looks out into the world and sees random events that have no connection to an overarching purpose concludes there is no order or essential interconnectedness, and as such, believes they are separate from reality in a specific or general way. The resulting effects of invoking this state of consciousness is a literal severing of one’s energy body from the inflowing energies of the universe. Once this separation has completed, the body now requires energy from other living things to be sustained, what we call consuming food or eating. And on Earth, since nearly everyone needs to eat food to sustain their body, it also suggests nearly everyone is laboring under some degree of separation consciousness.
Therefore, an essential part of living a life founded on separation consciousness is the need to eat food. But due to collapses of essentials, what was needed before is not needed now. Using the food consumption requirement as an example, if one attained universal consciousness and then began the process of training themselves to intake and expel energy from the universe, a transformation of one’s beingness would take place such that eating food would no longer be essential. If this interpretation is correct, the statement is suggesting that a fundamental change in being has taken place, a restoration of polarizations into unity. The latter half of this statement, are observed and surpassed, suggests that this change is not passive but active, for observation is an active behavior to a certain extent.
“Fluencies are enabled as rhymes are validated.” – The term fluency refers to a high level of skill one has with respect to a particular activity, usually in reference to language. Generally speaking, when one is fluent in a language, they are competent or able to wield it with accuracy and precision. In short, one who is fluent has gained wisdom to actually know first hand how to do something or why something is true. For example, if one were a fluent chef, they could prepare a number of dishes without the need to rely on recipes or external help. The latter portion of this statement is a reference to this process of gaining fluency as a result of continual effort and practice, in addition to verification, vetting or testing. This is what is meant by fluencies are enabled as rhymes are validated. Meaning, if someone tells you one word rhymes with another, but doesn’t actually say the two words so you can know first hand, then you would need to do this yourself. This is a process of validation or verification, where we take an idea, premise or belief and test it so that we can move from faith to knowingness. Without this step of validation, we don’t really know, we lack wisdom, and this lack of personal knowledge could lead to dogma and blind faith if we never performed our due diligence. But when we do validate a proposed idea, belief or process, now we have personal knowledge or a set of raw data (experience) to contemplate, and this enhances discernment to a great degree. This statement seems to be highlighting this process of gaining skill or fluency as a result of personal verification. And as one last point on rhymes, consider that when two words rhyme the concepts they represent are easier to recall or lay claim to in the mind. This is a reference to the syntax of thought, which is little spoken of in our world today.
Briefly, how we define our experiences or the form and nature of the thoughts we generate as a result of life greatly affect our abilities and skills. For example, we could use highly advanced mathematics to determine if it is day or night, by calculating the intensity of the solar wind, geomagnetic field, and ionosphere at any given time, or we could simply look at the sky and see if the Sun is above the horizon or not. Another example would be the delegation of understanding to experts and gurus, which limits personal clarity and as such prevents fluency from taking place. In short, the more we avoid gaining complete knowledge and understanding of things, the less fluency we have in life in general. And one of the biggest secrets of the mind is that no matter what we experience any changes in consciousness effect changes everywhere else. By this I mean, learning how to play piano affects your ability to prepare meals or learning how to love yourself affects your ability to love others. This means that developing fluency with seemingly anything can and will provide fluency in other areas as potentials that need to be activated via initiation. The ability for the mind to change and improve so as to affect everything one can do is the reason why some people possess innate skill whereas others do not. And this supports the practice of learning in all respects or following the truth wherever it leads, as a method of improving oneself overall.
On a personal note, many years ago as a teenager I realized this dynamic to the mind and started learning many things that were seemingly unrelated because at a deeper level of consciousness I knew they would contribute to each other the whole. I called this method Practical Task Development, and it is the idea that whatever life challenges we encounter should be embraced and given as much attention as we can. In other words, focus on improving everything you do and the specific things you care more about will improve naturally over time.
“Corollaries of Light come to play.” – A corollary is a natural consequence of something, which given the preceding statements in this update, is most likely a reference to the effects of personal verification. When we test or validate something, we are pouring the light of our awareness into it, making conscious that which was not before. The resulting wisdom gained, which can be physically expressed as skill or talent, is correlated to the consciousness and thing that associates to it. For example, if we lacked knowledge about how to make tea, and learned that skill by attempting to make it, the knowledge and wisdom we gained as a result would be in relation to that activity. And as a secondary effect, more generalized wisdom or consciousness change would also be felt in the totality of one’s beingness. This statement seems to be referring to this process of gaining skills and wisdom as a result of validation. And since the experience of disempowerment, disease, and lack is founded on ignorance or nescience—lack of skill and awareness—then the essential aspects change or collapse. In other words, one cannot feel disempowered or victimized once they have developed knowledge and wisdom with respect to a certain field or realm of study. As such, one of the best ways to heal separation consciousness, which is the foundation of all suffering, is to actively seek out opportunities to express unselfishness or a universal consciousness. By being kind, and loving to all, much like the Sun pours it’s like onto all beings regardless of who or what they are, or what they have done, we gain wisdom in universal consciousness, which through contemplation, leads to the development of knowledge (intellectual understanding) of universal consciousness. One way to do this is to look past a person’s temporary outburst of anger, vindictiveness and pain, to the process of evolution that person is going through. By this I mean, do not take offense for someone’s current state of being, for this will change in time. Being able to see long of sight, to actually recognize how a person’s experience is contributing to a moment of future transcendence, is a skill developed by shifting to one’s point of view from separation to universal consciousness, where all things are correlates of light.
“The Force of Love is experienced in full.” – It has been said that love is an active thing, a verb, something that is only felt or given through expression, which this statement also suggests with the use of the term force. A force is a catalyzing agent which causes change, whether physical or metaphysical. Therefore, the Force of Love is that which causes a change in a loving way. Love is the eternal unifier, it brings things together, whereas hate and fear, pull things apart. As such, if this force of love is experienced in full then the effect would be organization, harmony or unity. But who is experiencing this force is what remains unclear. I suggest that instead of all beings experiencing this force it is only those who have gained fluencies which collapsed essentials. In other words, gaining greater unification with the universe at large, which is another way of discussing evolution or ascension, is a proactive process, not a passive one. Those who are doing this work are feeling the fruits of their labors, which is greater skill in one’s life in general and the development of universal consciousness which undermines the experiences of suffering caused by separation consciousness. These individuals, by nature of the greater connection and sensitivity to the universe, will be more empowered to help others and also feel greater emotionally uplifting surges. However, the pain felt by stepping back into separation consciousness will also be much greater. In this sense, the universe is less merciful of those who know the truth of unity but still turn to separation. As such, always feed the version of yourself that identifies with universal consciousness, and let the separate selfish self starve so that the universal self can be fully realized.
PS – In December 2014, when Julian and I were discussing the idea of sharing these updates on the blog, he encouraged me to do more than just share the raw post. He said that we could offer our insights into what they could mean and in doing so create a venue for deep discussion and consciousness exploration. There were many times I wasn’t sure if others found any value in these interpretations, but Julian and others continued to urge me on in this venture. This is just one example of the countless ways he helped me in my life path, for which I am eternally grateful. I want to dedicate these interpretations to him and his memory. I will love you always Julian, and know, that your zeal for creativity and loving service of others continues on.
