From: The Spiritual Axis at Our Core

David Karchere
March 21, 2010

It’s interesting that the word whirl and world are close in sound. Our world is whirling. Certainly, our physical world revolves around an axis. But from an energetic standpoint, our personal world revolves around an axis too. For us personally, if that axis, energetically and spiritually, is not fully present, our world can go wobbly. The strength of our own personal axis depends on our listening and hearing what is happening at the very heart and core of who we are. We have that to bring to our world, and our world needs it.

This plays out in all kinds of ways. I’ve been thinking about the world we hold with other people, in whatever configurations, whether it is a family, a community, or an organization of some kind. If we are wise, then wherever we work together collectively we find ways to let the voice that would speak out of the whirlwind—out of the center of what’s happening—speak. We look to find ways to give voice to what is most central in the circumstance—most central in terms of vision and wisdom, but also what’s most central energetically and spiritually—because it is not only a matter of information; it is a matter of energy. It is the energy of love that can hold the central axis for any group of people. It doesn’t matter what group we are talking about, the dynamic of that group will go wobbly if love is not held at the center of it and if there is not the wisdom that comes from that central love.

It changes you when you stand in the midst of the whirlwind. It changes you to realize “I’m responsible, not just for my little thing—I’m responsible for all of it.” With that realization comes the understanding that I can’t control it all, at least not in the usual ways. I can’t make everybody do what I think they are supposed to do. I can’t make things turn out the way I think they should. So it grows you and transforms you. It makes you very religious! “I’ll just pray!” I will be still enough to discover faculties in me that I will only discover by standing at the center of things. Not standing there, you couldn’t begin to understand how you could do it. Standing there, you come up with all kinds of magical faculties you didn’t know you had. We have had those faculties all along, but they will lie dormant until such time as we stand in the midst of the whirlwind and take responsibility for the creative field that can only be held from that place.

There is an imperative to take a step into the center of things and see what happens when you hold your world from that place. For the world in which we live, we are made to be like the invisible axis that runs through the earth. There is not really an axis in the earth in the sense of something physical. There is no steel rod that runs through the center of the earth. But there is an energetic axis. That axis is beautifully symbolic of the most central dynamic that runs through us. They won’t find it in there if they operate, but there is a spiritual reality in us that is the very core of who we are. Our world needs that from us, and we have the opportunity of living and speaking and acting from that place.

This planet Earth that we stand upon revolves around an invisible axis. As far as we know, there is no rod of iron or anything else running through the Earth, around which it is rotating. But there is an invisible axis, and some wobble in that axis, apparently not so much as to cause total chaos.

The central axis is obviously important for the life of Planet Earth. And so it is with us individually, and with us as the body of humanity. In a different way, we are meant not only to have an axis but to honor what is central to us and let it have meaning and application in our life. In turn, we are meant to be that for our world. Individually, our world does revolve around us, for better or for worse. It is becoming increasingly apparent that Planet Earth revolves around humanity as a whole.

So we are here to see and acknowledge and accept what is most central in our life, and let it be most central. That is experienced as a place of stillness and a place of quiet power. When we are in that place, we open ourselves to the wisdom that is at our core and it is easy to allow the flow of that wisdom to inform our lives.

Love is a name for what deserves to be central in anybody’s life—not just the affectionate kind of Love, though Love includes that. I mean Love, the power of the universe, Love which is the central axis for this Earth and which deserves to be the central axis of anybody’s life.

I’m speaking of the power of Love from which is born all wisdom, and any wisdom. In fact, I’ve come to know there is no wisdom that is not born of Love. When we allow that to be central in our life personally, we make the commitment that Love will have a place to live in me. It will be protected from anything that would corrupt it in my experience. I will honor that quality, that experience, that spirit, above all else. When a person makes that commitment, Love can live in them. And when a group of people make that simple pledge, Love shows itself in that group.

We do become wise in what you might say are the ways of Love—wise in how we let Love live in our life and create, uplift and buoy other people, bringing the power to change our world, the power to make new.


From: Come to the Feast

If you take the opportunity to allow yourself to be poured into the creative process, so that you reveal the highest and finest and most holy, and most connected, most loving part of yourself, things also will be revealed that are incomplete and need to be moved out, so that you can be conscious, as opposed to just having a learned conscience. You have the opportunity to be conscious of the fact that what you do has an impact on your world, and realize that the revelation of yourself can be holy and incomplete, all at the same time, so that as the holiness is revealed, the incomplete parts get to be in the process too.

In the human experience, in our experience, it is common that people judge themselves so heavily that they are cautious about stepping into their world in a big way. Or they wait until they think they’re good enough to do it. They don’t want to reveal themselves, afraid that it will be revealed to other people, as well as themselves, that they are not whole and complete and finished with their process. Has anyone here waited until they thought they were perfect before they did something? Have you sung in the shower forever before deciding to sing in public? Have you practiced a speech until you knew every word by heart? To engage with your life you have to engage with your life and see what happens. You have to stop waiting.

I miss you.
You see me and come so close,
You set the table and speak about the meal.
You reminisce of past union and connection,
Of the sweetness and power we knew,
Of the celebration held in another’s home,
And I am here, waiting.

You say it is not time,
You are waiting for the others,
You say you’ve done enough,
And yet the dinner is not served.
Oh how like the ride into Jerusalem this is,
Filled with praise and anticipation,
And yet denial and rejection sit waiting on that same tongue.

Here is your breath ready for the taking,
Here is your heartbeat,
Strong and steady,
Allowing you to make a choice;
Here is the opportunity for the feast fully ready to be shared.

But you wait
Having lost your mind or heart
Or your connection to the purpose of the feast.

While memories of days gone by may stir you into action
They will not sate the hunger for life’s celebration now.

You must serve the food;
You must serve me,
You must join me at the table and commune.
Then, once again,
Like in the tale of the loaves and the fishes,
There is abundance in the house again.

When the others come,
Whoever they are, things will change
And still we should not wait.

I do not want to spend eternity waiting,
Missing you.
I will continue to send you messages of love
But you must serve the meal.
I am in this house…waiting.


From: Opening Gateways for Spiritual Generation

David Karchere
April 18, 2010

In one of his talks, Uranda suggests that for most people, as they come into adulthood, the generation of pneumaplasm is no longer on automatic and so often it slows down greatly. Life gives us conscious responsibility for generating pneumaplasm at that point. It is as if our life force says, “I’ve taken care of this for you, but now you’re going to have to be consciously involved.” One of the reasons for Emissaries of Divine Light is to call people’s attention to the opportunity to build their own energetic body. People are often conscious about putting money in the bank. But they are not so aware about investing in this energetic reservoir that is so crucial to living a fulfilled life.

We each have the opportunity to generate pneumaplasm personally, and in that sense to put money in our bank. I’m impressed with the fairness of life. When we bring a blessing into our world, we generate pneumaplasm by doing it. We put money in the bank when we’re of service. We put money in the bank when we’re loving, when we offer care to other people. And where there’s something brought into the world that’s less than creative, we are eroding the body of substance that we carry. When we take away from the experience of other people, we rob money from our own bank. The laws of the human world don’t always seem just, but the laws of life always are. When we harmonize with them we participate joyfully in that justice.

We can have a profound influence on someone’s life simply by what we believe about them. Do we believe that the person could change? Do we believe that at the core of the person is someone who is a being of love, someone who is genuine and authentic? Here are three other attitudes and actions that open gateways for spiritual generation.

Openness to Something New and Wonderful: It is a very simple matter, but if we walk through our life not believing that there is something new and wonderful that is showing itself, we have shut a gateway for spiritual generation. If you can assist a person to see what is showing itself in a creative way in their life, you will have assisted them to reopen this gateway for generation.

Aspiration: A person who is generating rich pneumaplasm in their life is aspiring to something more. They are saying to themselves, “I have more to give; I have something of higher quality to give than I have yet given. I could be a bigger person. I could bring more of the quality of the spirit that I love into the world. I could be a greater cause for good in my world than I’ve been. I aspire to see more than I’m seeing today, to be wiser than I am.”

Generosity: When a person values the gift that they bring to the world, and is willing to give it, that builds pneumaplasm. The ultimate fulfillment of our life is our generous service. What we know may be wonderful. The intention we hold for our life can be wonderful. But the fulfillment of our life is in what we actually follow through on and do. A person’s pneumaplasmic body builds and strengthens when they see things all the way to completion.
