As I was in the midst of my current drawing efforts (see the Symbol Notebook page), I heard a knock at my door, and found myself in front of two messengers of God's Spirit. These young Mormon Disciples, were asking for my partner, but instead they found themselves in the midst of a 'Procurer-of-the-Word' themselves, with a like-minded inclination to 'Share-the-Good News.'
Honestly, they looked like young deer centered within Spiritual Headlights, as I usurped our discussion with a brief outline of 'Within-Meditation-Practice'. As I Reflect-Now, I see their interest was genuine, so when they asked me to Spiritually-Deconstruct' Chapter 8 within their Spiritual Literature - they said, for 'their-illumination', I agreed without hesitation.
Beginning of Reflective-Reference
Chapter 8 of 'The Book of Mormon'
is a 'Rapturous-Description'
of The 'Paradoxical-Spiritual-Comprehension' (Intuition)
'Through-the Master' of 'Lehl's Own-Perception'.
This is Achieved via 'Within-Meditation'
'Where-In' the 'Form-of-one's-Focus'
'Becomes' the 'Function-of-the-Higher-Form'
What Lehl 'Identifies-Within-Upon-and-Through
His 'Highly-Focused' 'Changed-Inner'
'Self-Realization' of himself
as One 'Within the Spirit's-Expression'.
Within the first few stanzas (1-7) we see the description of the Soul's movement within meditation, one-pointedly 'Upon-Within-and-Through' the Presence of God's Spirit. This is symbolically represented by a Living-Tree (The Holy Spirit), which is intuitively perceived within the mind of the author, Lehl. This prophet describes the movement of his one-pointed focus 'Upon-Within-and-Through' the Presence, and this is a Rapturous-State, and thus a Reflection of a personalized narrative of experiential-Spiritual-perception.
Lehl is describing 'The Path' the consciousness must be 'straight-and-narrow' upon, within its focus on the Higher Form, to achieve the goal of 'Oneness-of-Perception' within It. Overall, the Consciousness of the Spirit as 'One's-Very-Own', is what Lehl is Experiencing, and this methodical-process of Spiritual-Devotion is translated by his experiential-perceptions of Spiritual-Reality. For example, his use of word-phrases, such as 'rod-of-iron', only indicates one's 'unmovable-and-unwavering' focus 'Upon-Within-and-Through' the Spirit's Presence 'within-meditation'. This is an experiential-Spiritual-Perception (the Higher-Exercise of one's Intuitive Faculty, which is a Spiritual-Acumen (Spiritual-Gift). This is a 'Literal-Spiritual' 'Line-of-Consciousness-Force', that is relaxed, and simultaneously the Higher Action of one-pointed Spiritual-Perception (Intuition).
Next, he 'beholds' or perceives, a 'thing which I have seen.' This is an expression of the 'Paradox-of-Experiential-Perceptual-Spiritual-Reality' within the 'Divinely-Shifted, Highly-Focused-State' of 'Rapturous-Oneness' 'Within-Through-and-Upon' the Presence. Side note: one can Realize his own Spiritual Gifts of Discernment, within the Self-Realization, Consciously (absent of ego), that he-himself IS He-Himself.' This is achieved via a one-pointed, Devotional-Focus, with upturned eyes to the Spiritual Eye, through one's own 'built' experiential-Spiritual-perceptions, and corresponding comprehensions, via the Intutive Faculty.
Lehl then proceeds to see 'a man... dressed in a white robe.' Simply, this is the Higher Perception of 'God-the-Absolute', which may-be Discerned within Deep-Meditation within the Spiritual-Eye. 'The Man', to Leal, is 'dressed in white', which I intuitively perceive, is his experiential-perception of the 'Bright-Light' within one's own Spiritual-Eye. 'That-Is' The-Experience of Christ-Consciousness as One's-Own. This is a 'Revelatory-Spiritual-Experience' of the 'Conscious-Perception', of 'Self-as-One', with 'The Higher-Spiritual-Comprehension.'
To do this for oneself, all that is necessary is the inner creation, through visualization, of a 'Rod' of your own, to use within meditation 'Upon-Within-and-Through' the Higher-Form of your focus. I use a visualized 'Spiritual Umbrella', and Upon my own Triad Self-Conceptualization (Witness-Self, Spirit-as-Self, and Intuitive-Self), weave the separate Spiritual-Comprehensions 'Together-Reflectively', 'Within-The-Presence'. This forms the 'Triangular-Spiritual' Comprehension (Soul-Experiential-Perceptual-Comprehension) that may move one forward within 'His-Absolute-Perception'.
Overall, the 'Spiritual-Umbrella' is literally visualized as 'held in front of your perception', and as you watch, you simultaneously will -with humilty and child-like Devotional-Love for your own Experiential-Perception of Him - willing it to Open, 'Within-Upon-and-Through' your Spiritual Comprehension.
As this is done, willfully move it over your head (to keep the 'rain', a symbol for distracting throughts, from your perception), and effectively 'slide-yourself' forward into the 'Infinite-Intuitive-Comprehension', while 'Upon-Within-and-Through' the 'Master-of-Your-Perception' (Christ, for example). It does take some visualization practice initially, but once Devotion for the 'Higher-Perception' is understood experientially, it is possible to quicken the process via Affirmation.
The 'fruit' Lehl finds, is Realized Within Himself, as It has always been within Him. The Spirit's-Presence is an 'Intuitive-Perception', and until an individual Consciously-Realizes his own Spiritual Placement within himsef, through, within and upon the Higher-Form's Reflection, one will find it is difficult to fully comprehend religious writing such as this, short of the fact that it is inspirational. The Spirit IS each one of Us; we are all Spiritual-Reflections, and 'Live-Within' a Spiritual Framework that is easily Discerned through Intuition, to be That of a Loving, Geometric-Orientation of self-structures within their Divine Origin.
Lehl goes on to say that he finds the 'fruit' of the Spirit, which is the 'joy' of the experience of this 'Rapturous-State'. This is the Higher-Spiritual State of the consciousness, which Lehl describes as locatable. He communicates in this transcription, that the 'Location-of-the-Divine-Presence' is where he 'casts his eyes - toward the head of the river' (Spirit/God-the-Father/Absolute, which is located within the Spiritual-Eye between the eyebrows). Overall, Lehl points his flock to the state of HIgher-Bliss within the 'Percpetion-of-the-Spirit', which is Accomplished when one has stilled his mind into a One-Pointed Focus 'Upon-Within-and-Through' the Higher-Form 'Within-Meditation'.
Regarding the 'mist of darkness' (8:23) perceived by Lehl, and those who 'wandered-off',
this is only a description of the 'sorry-state' experienced
without a focus upon-within-and throughThe Spirit's Presence. W
We must 'Live-Within' 'The-Perception-Experientially'
The more one meditates upon his own Experiential-Perception
of the 'Higher-Spirit'
of 'His-Own' 'Spiritual-Comprehension' -
setting 'ego-self-identity-structures' aside -
this issue of 'wandering-off' within one's focus
At this juncture,
one 'then-may-Experience', as Lehl did,
'His-Own' 'Revelation-of-the-Path' to 'God-The-Father's' 'Experiential-Perception (Intuition),
through his own 'Master-of-Devotion' (Christ/Holy Spirit).
