Creator-relational Sainthood opens up your Heart and consciousness to a personal ground of energetic transactable relatedness with your Parent, the Maker-Creator Aspect of God, the ‘I am of Maker’ state of consciousness, the embodiment of which is a completely different reality than just the knowing that you are a child of Maker that occurs in belief-based religions.
To grow into this ability maturely, which ultimately imparts to you the experience of actually feeling Maker feel you, involves opening up the upper half of the fourth chakra. Personhood practice results in the vulnerable opening up of the lower half of the fourth chakra wherein you are opened in to yourself and opened out to others in personal grounds of being. In contrast, Creator-relational Sainthood practice results in the opening up of the upper half of fourth chakra wherein you are opened in to the Maker-God within you and opened out to others in more Universal Grounds of Being. Both Personhood and Sainthood are necessary to open your Heart in and out in all the ways it was designed to be able to do.
Thus, the only state more mature than the Not-self of Sagehood being is the ‘I Am of Maker’ state of Creator-relational Sainthood. This is a milestone Theohumanity offers no one in history has ever yet attained. This is offered not as hubris but because the criteria for attaining it has never been offered until now. You may agree or disagree with those criteria, but they remain new, and as such, mean we have been unable as a species to embody the state created by those criteria until those criteria are met and the result consensually validated. Such an ‘I Am of Maker’ state of consciousness requires one to have previously created healthy emotionally mature-based Personhood, for which we have not yet had a means until now, and to have previously attained the Not-self of Nondual Sagehood following that, which clears out all projections of after-life graspings, immortality projects, and relatedness to the Living God as a false God of salvation instead of the True God as Root-Source of you and all things.
In transcendental metaphysical terms, not seeing that this ‘I Am of Maker’ is developmentally different than the ‘I Am,’ is why even pure Nondual Buddhistic paradigms have mistakenly placed Nonduality as the apex of human consciousness. As such, they relegate all pictures containing a sentient kind of God less mature than they, wherein there still exists the duality of self and other in terms of a soul relating dyadically with a Source-Parent. But the ‘I Am’ state of consciousness is one of ‘I Am (made) of Love,’ which is less mature than ‘I Am Not,’ whereas the ‘I Am of Maker’ state of consciousness is one of ‘I Am made of Maker.’
In that way, attaining the ‘I Am of Maker’ level of consciousness is a combination of the Love-Bliss acquired in the ‘I Am’ tier and how in the ‘I Am Not’ level you are not having experience but experience is having you instead. When these two are added to the previously acquired self-worth of the healthy ‘I’ of Personhood, the ‘I Am of Maker’ tier is accessible as the deepest available to human beings, completing the triple attainment criterion of Enheartenment. The mental body, in terms of outlining the metaphysical ground of this, as it is with all manner and domains of concepts, simply cannot grasp this until after its experience. We can only make concepts and metaphysical maps based deeply in previous experience in some way, because the experience is the territory and the concept is the representation of that experience as the map. We can only make maps after we experience the terrain to some large degree, even when we make extrapolative projections not in direct experience but based on what we already have experienced.
Creator-relational topics are the nature of prayer and what it means to have an energetically real and abiding personal relatedness with the Maker-Creator, and what it means to surrender your outcomes in life to It completely. As such, it involves an exploration of what is possible for human beings to actually experience about Its Nature.
The simplest place to begin is to say that the ability to encounter the Maker Aspect of God with Which we can have personal relatedness ground requires first to slay all the false gods we carry in our being. The presence of any false god will to that degree preclude an abiding and healthy energetic relatedness with the Living Maker of all things. In Personhood practice we learned that our false gods in that domain are the medicative energies, substances, belief systems, and relationships that power our strategic self-image. These are the first level of false gods that must be slain, and is another reason why attainment of Sainthood requires us to first complete attainment to great degree of Personhood.
It’s important to note that you can certainly encounter Maker while burdened with false gods overlaying your deeper woundings: if this were not true, none of the emotionally and existential immature human beings of the past could ever have had any experience of the Maker Aspect of God, and that is just not true. Theohumanity simply offers we can’t have an abiding and most healthy energetic personal relatedness to It to the degree we carry significant wounding in the emotional body pivoting around self-unworth and self-disconnect, as already argued.
That said, it is offered that the false god of codependents is relationship; the false god of ascetics is self-denial; the false God of religionists is God as an idealized parent figure and revelational texts; the false god of aboriginal and animistic populations is tradition and ritual; the false god of atheists is reason and the mental body; the false god of Yogis is self-mastery; the false god of Buddhistic Nondual gurus is non-attachment; the false god of born-again evangelical Christians is Jesus; the false god of A Course in Miracles is forgiveness; the false god of psychology is control; the false god of the pope is his own inflated self-image, no matter how humble or pious he (never she) may be; the false god of suicide bombers is self-destructive revenge and their own place in paradise; the false God of Tibetan Buddhists is Nirvana…..the list is endless. Whatever you are not willing to not have in your world is a false god, and the cause of that unwillingness will always be found in the hidden well of your unconscious fears and emotional body woundings that drive your world invisibly by default until they are accessed and healed.
The strong clutching of any notion of what you think it means to be attained will always prevent you from creating abiding relatedness with the Living God. To do so, you must go naked before it, shorn of all your attachments, including your attachments to non-attachments. The unwillingness or inability to do this is exactly why deep and abiding healthy relatedness with the Maker-Creator has been so difficult over the ages.
As said, the practice of Creator-relational Sainthood has two movements, prayer and the surrender of all your life outcomes to It. These movements directly confront, process, and heal the third soul-origination fear of giving up your power as an independent agent of self who has their own life and allowing yourself to be a child of Maker whose life belongs to It instead. Learning to actually embody this state as a permanent element of consciousness wherein you then experience all of life as God relating to God, that God is always ‘doing’ God everywhere and at all times. This qualifies you to access the Heart of your Love-realized Sainthood, a blossom that will remain unopened fully and permanently until the third fear of soul-origination is uncovered and healed.
In terms of surrender of your life outcomes to Maker, all human beings need to learn how to healthily invest in the process of manifesting their dreams of life. As a popular adage says, ‘If not you, who? And if not now, when?’ But most people’s form of strategic selfhood involves being too disempowered to manifest their dreams because they are too frightened to do so, dreaming dreams but too afraid to pay the necessary prices to make them come true. Others’ form of strategic selfhood do have the courage and invest the energy into trying to make their dreams manifest, but in the absence of emotional body healing they too heavily invest in their manifestation to strategically make themselves self-worthy and valuable, and so will need the dream manifestation to reflect positively back to them in the eyes of their own self-image or others’ approval and admiration. This is dream manifestation to compensatorily support an unconscious weak inner self-esteem via the bolstering the outer attainment of the dream gives them.
In Personhood, then, we learn to healthily invest in dream manifestation process and healthily invest in dream manifestation outcome (invest/invest). In Sagehood, we learn to healthily divest of all dream manifestation process, and healthily divest of their outcome (divest/divest). So after learning healthy investment of dream manifestation process and outcome in Personhood, and healthy divestment of dream manifestation process and outcome in Sagehood, we can put the two together in Sainthood, which requires us to healthy invest in dream manifestation process, but divest of its outcome (invest/divest). That outcome divestiture is the core of surrendering your life to Maker as you learn to embody a life that is more Its than ours.
So living a life of Theohumanistic dream manifestation is one of where we both commit wholly and release wholly. Invest in process, divest of outcome, giving Maker all the power to make with your life and your desires what It will. This requires that our commitment to dream manifestation must involve healing the why of why we want or need to commit to it and so have a loose grip on it. Otherwise we will not be open to recognize that the non-manifestation of our dream may be Maker saying it is a drug for your low self-worth and not the actual food of your true passion-purpose. Healthy investment requires attainment of some significant degree of Personhood.
And to really divest of outcome at the level of energy and not just words, you have to learn to make the changeover from faith and hope to knowing and trust. Since most of us never learn to give up all of our beliefs, faith, and hope, there is always fear in what we think we are doing in letting go of outcomes. This is a completely different thing than really divesting with Maker, although they may look similar from the outside. To actually fully divest to Maker your agonally invested-in dream manifestation, you first must have accomplished two things to some deep degree. You must have done enough Sagehood divestment work to unhook from any deep relationship with an illusory future, or your divestment effort will be purely cosmetic. And you must have already established an authentic personal relationship with Maker deeply enough to recognize Its presence in your life at all times. And you can’t have done that if you still have fear in the form of beliefs, hope, and faith between you and It.
So in Theohumanity’s self-worth-based version of humanness, unlike religion’s, as you do surrender your life outcomes to Maker, you do not lose your personal will or generator of desire. It only feels like a game of personal will versus God’s will when the strategic self is in command of the being, which is why pre-egoic-based religion imparts the ground of a versus game in that domain. When the authentic self is involved, it is not an experience of you losing your personal will at all. It is a case of you gaining the Maker’s cleansing Presence laundering of your own personal will. As that completes, there is then no differencebetween your personal will and the Will of God. They are then experienced by the true Saint as one and the same, not as one against or in opposition to the other. So if it feels to you like they are in opposition, you can be sure you are in the throes of your strategic selfhood, and not your most authentic self.
This is the context of what yeshua actually meant by ‘give to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s, and to God the things that are God.’ He wasn’t talking about taxes. He was talking about how it is completely spiritual to invest in what you want as a humanistic person (give to Caesar) as long you are open to those investments being exposed as unhealthy, and thus to divest of the provision of those desires in trust (give to God).
In terms of prayer, in Theohumanity prayer is very different than the forms offered by our religions, both in content and context. As such, the pre-egoic stage of consciousness evolution that underlies all religion will deeply distort both the context-premises around how both self and God are defined, and the content-practices governing how then we as selves relate to It, one of which is of course prayer. A healthy egoic stage of consciousness maturation significantly changes how self and God relate and the forms those changes then involve.
But no matter what phase of consciousness maturation through which you are currently moving, structurally you are already energetically linked to Maker through the umbilicus of your soul, like an organ is connected via a major blood vessel that is then confluent with the Heart. But you are not experientially linked with It through that already present soul architecture because of your soul-origination nexi of fear. By default, the soul ‘tube’ or umbilicus will be plugged up with energetic atherosclerotic congestions all flowing from some expression of the three soul-origination fears that prevent abiding and personally experienced energetic relatedness with It.
Prayer in Theohumanity can be described as the energetic closening of an eternal child to their eternal Parent wherein there is a gradual movement from God being perceived as somewhere ‘out there’ and you being ‘in here,’ to where God is ‘here’ where you used to be, and you are then ‘there’ in a secondary sequence of being. One of the results, when linked to surrender of life outcomes and al the loss of hope that goes along with that, is then that our primary seat of being moves from one where it is you having your life, to one where Maker-God is having your life instead.
Prayer has three stages: Conversation, Communion, and Abidement. Conversation is just that, an opening to communicate with It in a casual way as if you were talking to another human being. There is no solemnity or special reverence in this, as these are valences supported only by pre-egoic unworthy-based religions. Maker needs no Mass, groveling, offerings, atonements, repentances, confessions, or middleman to link you to It in a way that is actively alive for you. You only need a healthily humble heart, an enormously significant feature or effect of emotional body enlightenment needed to actuate a self-validating experience of your Parent.
In this Conversation phase, you are free to ask for what you want from Maker until you get that it is your job to get yourself what you want, and God’s job to get you what you need, and further that it is also your job to investigate how what you think you want and need is based in unhealed congestions of fear by default and thus could only be a desire for a medicative drug.Another way to say this is thatMaker is not a drug-dealer, which is why almost all of us get a ‘no’ to our prayer requests. It is a food-provider of true Heart-nourishment. Learning the difference between what a drug is and what actual nourishing food is in your life is what enlightenment of the emotional body entails.
Communion is when you finally becoming aware of how It has always been ‘reaching’ back to you both structurally and energetically as one human version of Itself. Until you start waking up from your fear-based slumber and start opening up to Its Presence and Flow, It is holding up both ends of the relationship until the day comes when the human ‘unit’ on the other end starts to energize their half of the transaction through prayer and the surrender of their life outcomes to It.
In that way, the Presence and Flow has always been coming toward you from It but you have never known how to really open up to that Presence and Flow. Once you do, for every one ‘shovelful’ of clearing the plugged soul-tube between you and It you do from humble Heart-based effort to heal fear, It digs out two shovelfuls of atherosclerotic congestion that has collected from disuse atrophy from Its end of the plug. This Communion stage is where you begin to feel something coming back at you in the forms of increased sensitivity to how guidance is being given to you every moment in every day from both people, life, and you own inner system but of which you have not been aware. Maker’s increasing Presence begins to back-light and illuminate the shadows of fear in your systems and firmly moves you to face into them, not away from them in the form of ‘letting go’ or asking for forgiveness for your ‘sinful’ nature.
Abidement with Maker in the third stage is thus being with Maker with no distance between you and It at all. Then it’s not a case of you here, Maker there. It’s a case of you there, Maker here. If you’re ‘here’ and Maker ‘there,’ there’s a distance of separation. But if you’re ‘there’ and Maker’s ‘here,’ there’s no distance at all. As Gibran said, it’s the difference between having God in your Heart and being in the Heart of God. Immature relationship with It is thus you being where you is, and Maker being where It is, and mature relationship with It is you being where Maker is, and Maker being where you is!
These three stages can be actuated in five movements of prayer. The first phase is a short time spent in zazen vipassana or Theohumanity’s avrassana meditation. This is important, because what it does is help you stop from gripping your desire-objects of all kinds. Doing this opens us up to more easily recognize how what we then subsequently pray for is fear-based. Secondly, you then first extend a silent, intentional ‘energy-bridge’ toward It. This is like unreeling an outbound highway from our Heart to Maker with no words. Feel it come out of you like unrolling a long welcome mat for It.
The fourth stage is a silent listening mode as you feel into anything that may be coming to you from Maker. This may be in the form of words or not. But just sitting and ‘basking’ with God in this silent receiving mode over time actually changes the valences and frequencies of your being. The Light and the Love of Its Presence, when actually encountered, will be like fresh water that will push out the ‘oil’ in your being up and out. This means that actually beginning to contact the Living God in this way will in the short-term bring up many shadow issues that can no longer be hidden in the ‘wash’ of Presence with God. For many, this stage of processing the shadow issues in Personhood kicked up by a parallel effort in Sainthood can last for many years.
The final stage is one of thankfulness, in two directions. The first is for what you both have and have not received from Maker, knowing that It knows best for you. This thankfulness orients you in the appropriate Heart-poise to move on most effectively in life. Thankfulness prayer alone could be said to be the most authentic way of relating to Maker, as you owe It the gratitude for your very existence as a sentient be-ing. Secondly, you thank It for all that will be provided to you in the future, a celebration of knowing connectedness, that connectedness is possible, that only your fear precludes inhabitation of a bond that is your birthright as a fragment-child. Thankfulness is a form of surrender, a surrender and acknowledgment that Maker is Maker, that no one is never not home at the other end.
Sainthood in Theohumanity also offers a practice called the Breath of Love. The breath has two movements and two nodes of rest. There is the inbreath, a node of rest, the outbreath, and then a node of rest before starting the next inbreath. You link your inbreath to an actual attempt to feel self-love or the degree of your own innate goodness; at the rest before the outbreath, you hold the breath and then try to feel your Love going outwardly to your Parent in gratitude and devotion; on the outbreath you try to empty yourself as fully as you can along with your exiting breath; and at the rest node before the next inbreath try to feel the Love Maker has for you coming back toward you.
In this way, the Breath of Love recapitulates all three attainments in Theohumanity. The inbreath represents how deeply you have moved in the emotional body enlightenment practice of Personhood; the outbreath represents how deeply you have moved in the mental body enlightenment practice of Sagehood; and the two nodes of holding the breath represents how deeply you have moved in the etheric/chakral body enlightenment practice in Sainthood as you feel how your Love with God transacts from you to It and It back to you.
Finally, here are four prayers Theohumanity offers will help move one’s prayer effort.
Prayer of AffirmationI KNOW there is God
the Loving Sea in which I breathe my being
and as the salt of the ocean flows in my blood
I KNOW I am thus ever within God
as I encounter God ever within me
I KNOW there are no saviors in this EarthGarden of God
who will spare me my task
of heart-rendering lesson-learnings
I KNOW I am Soul, conscious Lightchild of God
forever rooted in my Maker-Parent
and that to thrive in Its Glorious Garden
I must inhabit relationship with it as my Sovereign
I KNOW I am Self, conscious Lightchild of Soul
and that I must cleanse from myself
the fear of being in the world
by attaining authentic self-worthiness and love
I KNOW that to that end my pain and fear and doubt
can never be prayed, meditated, or willed away
that they must be healed in the same emotional domain
in which they were born and have life
I KNOW I must thus embrace each and every part of me
that only in honoring my dark
will I one day be delivered unto Light
I KNOW I must also cleanse from myself
the fear of being not in the world
where the sense of my separate I is outworked
into the That Which Is What Is
I KNOW I must also cleanse from myself
the fear of being not of the world
by awakening my sleeping root-link to Maker
through surrender of all outcomes in life into Its Hands
that I may forever journey with It as my Guide
I KNOW wonder and respect for the Sacrament of Life
for each and every movement in each of our places
in the planting-rows of Maker’s Harvest-Garden of Souls
AND ABOVE ALL I KNOW
