Gaia Portal - April 3rd 2016: Illusions of form continue to present, for dissolution - with interpretations by Justin

The raw Gaia Portal update is first, followed by my extrapolated meanings in black.

Source - Gaia Portal

Illusions of form continue to present, for dissolution.

Rapid scrubbing is noted.

Softenings of the vibrational journey are experienced.

Gaia speaks to all.

And now the analysis:

I do not have an insider or direct source for the meanings below. This is my interpretation of the update, based on extrapolation and contextual usage of the terms. The meanings provided are not the only ones that can be gleaned; in my view, all meanings have value, especially when shared and discussed openly. Please comment below if interested, I'd love to hear other's thoughts on this material.

Interpretations: "Illusions of form continue to present, for dissolution." - In the previous update, Heralds of amplifications present, and now Illusions of form continue to present, for dissolution, thematically implying a time of presentation. The term present refers to something that is existing or occurring now. The concept of notification or notice is similar to presentation because by the act of observing a thing we are notified of it. Notification is occurring at all times, as anytime something enters our awareness, the mind responds by generating knowledge of it. If we look at a painting, we are being notified of the relationships inherent in it, entraining onto our consciousness. Here, the things we are being presented with are illusions of form, which is a phrase most likely referring to unreal things or falsehoods.

Consider that a falsehood can only exist as a misperception. If someone tells us the Sun is the color purple, we would often say this a lie. But in speaking this, the color of the Sun does not change, it remains whitish yellow. Yet if we believe it, if we accept the idea as true within our minds, it will become a misperception. We may even look up at the sky and think to ourselves the Sun is purple, but this experience of false recognition does not in the least change the true color of the Sun. As such, all falsehoods are ultimately figments of imagination, illusions of form, which we cannot take notice of if we are not paying attention. On Earth humanity is adept at ignoring falsehoods because in dissolving them, often our sense of self is transformed as well. We identify with our beliefs, and if our beliefs are false, then dissolving them with truth can be a traumatic experience. 

This statement seems to be suggesting that at least some of these falsehoods are being presented to us, so that we can expand them with knowledge and dissolve any illusory forms created by our belief. The truth is ONE, there is naught but truth. As such, a falsehood is — only ever — an incomplete reflection of reality, an illusion. Falseness has no substance, but it can prevent the substance of truth from forming within our minds. But by bravely seeking truth within the depths of our own darkness, by searching for and making contact with our own illusions of form, we can focus our attention on them, filling them with truth so that they dissolve. What remains is an accurate mental image of reality, a better reflection of the Truth. Using the example above, when we finally recognize that the Sun isn't purple, the belief that it was is reorganized to become a truth, that the Sun is actually whitish yellow. 

"Rapid scrubbing is noted." - This statement seems fairly self-explanatory. As a consequence to the act of taking notice of illusions of form (falsehoods), the truth seeker responds by beginning a purification process, rapidly scrubbing their minds of falseness. If we are not too traumatized by life and the challenges of existence, then passing through the initiation of truth reception is easier. The truth received transforms the individual. The reality response, as the Urantia Book describes it, is an inescapable change in one's beingness as a result of making contact with reality, objective truth. If we identify with a false belief, then when the truth is finally received, an identity crisis occurs. A choice must be made to either abandon the former identity or maintain it by rejecting the truth. This choice cannot be avoided, it is inescapable. There is no middle path because ultimately there is only the truth. As we described above, falseness is an illusion, a temporary misperception emerging as a result of limited knowledge and awareness. And while many on Earth float a drift on the seas of experience, there are those wayshowers who are walking the path of truth. By sacrificing our false ego's on the altars of universal attainment (a cosmic initiation), the identity we once had is purged, and the raising of a new identity takes its place. Since we are always in contact with reality via awareness, these choices to change and grow or stagnate and die are always being made. The task is to consciously participate in the ever-present unfolding of personal transformation. Every NOW moment is an opportunity to embrace a grander vision of self, but only if we walk hand in hand with the universal process of evolving consciousness by way of free will choice to receive the truth. 

"Softenings of the vibrational journey are experienced." - The term soften refers to the act of making something less hard or abrasive, easier to process or digest. The thing being softened here is the vibrational journey, which could be a general description of one's experience in life as they make contact with reality. Consider that observation generates responses, perceived as feelings and emotions. All things in the universe vibrate, they are in motion, a procession of relaxed and energized states of polarization. The degree to which we experience polarization or energization is a function of how harmonized we are with the universe as a whole. The more out of balance we are, the more intense the vibrations from making contact with reality will be. For example, if you were raised without any human contact or experience of the outside world, living in a single room with no access to anything other than food, water, and basic needs, when you do finally step out of this room, the experience will be very intense. Some people who suffer through this develop serious behavior issues as they lack fundamental knowledge to understand and co-create with reality. Conversely, those individuals who do not grow up in sheltered conditions, who are exposed to life in fulness, yet in the measure and form it can be received, are much less jolted when experiencing new things. This can be described as mental entrainment, and as we discuss often in these updates, it is the process of synchronizing the mind with reality itself. The more divergent the mind as a result of accepting falseness, the greater the correction that is needed to restore balance and the more intense the vibrational journey will be. But because illusions of form are being presented and dissolved, each individual will have an easier time of purging their falsehoods, as the vibrational journey is softened.

"Gaia speaks to all." - This final statement in the update could be generally taken to mean we are each receiving knowledge from Gaia, but I also think it is a causal factor in the first statement of this update. As we discussed above, when we make contact with reality via awareness, a choice to change and grow with truth or create illusions of form is presented to us. When we turn away from truth, we create falsehoods within the mind (negative knowledge) that hinders our skills of manifestation. But experience itself is the most powerful teacher. And Gaia in her all-encompassing embrace is arguably one of humanities most important teachers. When as a species, humanity turns away from truth, Gaia suffers. When we believe that the Earth is a resource for humanity's selfish pursuits, instead of recognizing our co-creative relationship with Gaia, this false belief creates destruction in the world. So in a very real sense, Gaia is speaking to us at all times, just as the universe does. Mother Earth and Father Sky unfailingly pour out their wisdom in the form and measure each individual can receive it, but ultimately the choice is ours. Will we listen to the wise teachings of our divine parents? Or will we continue to turn away and suffer the hardships of our own making, even to the detriment of future generations?

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.

Note about meanings: The meanings offered are my attempt to objectify the Gaia Portal updates, to give them a scientifically supported basis in reality. However, the subjective process of reading the update personally is incredibly valuable, and meanings generated in each respect are not mutually exclusive (in conflict with each other). I suggest reading the update, like a tool for divination as if it was written specifically for you; similar to a psychic reading. Your meanings may not match what I share, but that does not mean one is more 'correct' than another. All meanings have value, depending on the context which is applied to them, all perspectives have a place within the whole of what IS, and therefore, can be part of an exploration of one's self. Our perspective is intimately connected to all others.
