Like a musical note seeking union with the harmony of itself, the soul returns to human form, to earth, in order to heal and integrate into a more perfect remembrance of the divinity of love it already is. The soul, on this plane of reality, innocently expresses itself through the lens of the body's DNA. This crystalline prism holds the harmonic records of our soul's evolutionary journey toward enlightenment.
All thoughts, loving or fearful, are recorded onto this record. In Sanskrit, the oldest recorded language, the Hindus refer to this as the akashic records. Imagine the akashic records if you will, as your soul's cosmic cloud memory. Each and every thought and experience is recorded and becomes imprinted onto our DNA. As our thoughts advance towards greater love so does the DNA helix, back and forth, in reflection of this awareness. The greater our consciousness of love, the more direct and clear we receive and transmit in alignment with the divine.
Certain spiritual texts remind us that the divine, or kingdom of Heaven, is within. They remind us that we may not enter this kingdom of Heaven until we become as a child, a metaphorical reference to a consciousness of innocence. In such innocence we are able to find stillness from which we know the creative power of our God-self within.
Toward this ultimate state of awareness imagine, if you will, your soul's record is literally imprinted onto an old vinyl record. From birth, the needle of our awareness is dropped (gently or otherwise) on the outer edge of the soul record of this particular time and space reality. The needle both plays and records each note of our life's symphony. Like all records of this type, the needle tracks from the larger/outer radius of our heart song toward the inevitably smaller/center of our radical enlightenment.
Through love and gratitude we become aware of the rhythmic flow of our soul's grand melody. Through fear and judgment, we find the needle sinks into a groove of disharmony and unpleasantness, discordant notes that painfully repeat over and over again. In Sanskrit, such grooves in consciousness are called "sanskaras."
Stuck in these self-created grooves, the needle of our awareness digs ever painfully and deeper into the record of our subconscious. We become attached to disharmony, begin to suffer and adjust to the discordant notes as being normal. Attached in this unconsciousness and suffering our heart ever longs for the melody of our soul's joy.
This crossroads of unconsciousness and joyful longing awakens our intent to rejoin the symphony of our life song. Mindful of the disharmony of fear and lesson of greater love, we drop the awareness pebble of the ho'oponopono into the groove to interrupt the monotony of discordance and pain.
According to Wikipedia, the ho'oponopono "is an ancient Hawaiian process of reconciliation and forgiveness." At its mystical core are the elements of mental cleansing, putting things right and rectifying errors. Attending with this awareness activation is the recognition that we are always 100 percent at cause and responsible for any problem. Similarly it is defined that we are also 100 percent capable of rectifying any and all errors. Four short phrases activate the process of this healing and release us from the groove of suffering: "I'm sorry. Please forgive me. Thank you. I love you." Through the melody of these words we transmute and transcend of the error of thought and now co-create an inspired new heart song.
Now, as the needle begins to track back through the old groove of unpleasantness, the pebble now serves to bump the needle back onto the record surface. A new and ever more gorgeous melody begins to play. Our heart feels lifted, and we are inspired by a song of new possibilities.
Frail in this new moment, the needle runs ever close to the edge of our old groove and the ear is tempted by the discord we were trained to find so familiar. If our resolve is weak, the needle is pulled back into the groove and its depth and darkness will grow with strength. If our courage is strong, the needle continues to float on angelic notes that proclaim our symphony of enlightenment.
"Consciousness is somehow a by-product of the simultaneous, high frequency firing of neurons in different parts of the brain. It's the messing of the frequencies that generates consciousness, just as tones from individual instruments produces the rich, complex, and seamless sounds of a symphony orchestra." -- Francis Crick, co-discoverer of DNA
