Consistent Expansion and Deepening of Consciousness, Integrity, Discernment and Wisdom
- The ongoing expansion and deepening processes of these Fields reflect the constant
change that is occurring everywhere at all times in this particular Universe.
- The Field of Expansion stretches the capacities and perspectives that give us a wider
view of everything, and increases our experience of joy.
- The Field of Deepening stretches the capacities and perspectives that give us the
opportunity and choice to deal with difficult psycho-emotional and psycho-spiritual
challenges that include anguish, and increases our experience of empathy and compassion.
- Both expansive joy and depth of compassion are necessary components of this Field,
and play a useful part in the transformation or reinforcement of patterns.
- In order to make the most conscientious choices about whether to apply our energy
to either the transformation or strengthening of Field Patterns requires that we
develop more capacity for consciousness on a consistent basis.
- We must develop and make use of the very complex processes involved in clear Discernment;
a sorting process in which we assess whether a pattern is helpful or not helpful
from the present perspective that we bring to it.
- At the same time, we must draw upon Wisdom, the quality of learning from our own
past experiences and the experiences of others who have worked with the same patterns.
- We must do all of this with Integrity, that quality that demands that we seek clear
feedback—both internally through inner practices and externally by clearly observing
the effects of our choices.
- To find meaning and purpose in embodying and acting from these Fields simultaneously
is the Task and Challenge at this level of Spiritual Service.
