The Gift of Consciousness Expanded

The capacity to reach out to something more than me is where loving happens—something that is not of my own making.

Perception Inviting expanded consciousness

by Kevin McEvenue

Once again, I can feel it all coming together in me because Perception is speaking directly to that experience. Something is emerging, coming to my consciousness as I speak, as I feel, and as I express in the presence of another person included in my consciousness. 

This podcast speaks for itself directly, more that I could try to put words to. It describes a clarity of relationship between me, a wounded part of me, and a higher sense of me, all coming together hereA direct experience in myself that is often beyond words. And then maybe words come. The words that come seem to form directly from the experience.

This is me here: me who can actually reach out and engage with something beyond me. I am doing just that now—right now. It is an action step that I initiate by inviting a connection.  And that is enough!

What is so amazing is that something actually does happen. It is like my wounded self is discovering the power of its own consciousness.   This is the power in me, a part of me that can invite and receive, quite different from trying to possess, trying to take from, or trying to make happen. These activities come from very different places.

When I speak about the power of me experiencing this sense of me as powerful, there is some discernment happening at the same time. It is this power that I have been exploring and struggling with in this exploration of perception. What is coming here is the word Presence—to feel myself being present and grounded like how an electric plug needs to be grounded to the earth to make it safe to come alive.  

The capacity to reach out to something more than me where loving happens—something that is not of my own making—is an experience that really can’t be described.  That is it! 

It is something I invite and then I pause, I stay with the desire, and make room for whatever comes—like whatever seems to be the next right step. That is how it works and it requires my consent.  In short, I have reached out, something has come as a response, and I say yes in some way.

  1. Dear Kevin,

    I’m just hearing your audio this morning. You started with the words, “It’s time to say something about the Borrowing.” A mysterious statement! And you prepared your reader–you prepared me– to find out, what it is that Kevin is ‘borrowing?’

    It was worth the wait. I hope everyone who feels drawn, listens to what it is that you found yourself borrowing: the Universal Wisdom, that could be with you–and could be with any of us, if we invited it. And what happens is ground-breaking and Life-enhancing in deep and wordless ways.

    Thank you for bringing this to us.
    Your friend,
    elizabeth

  2. An invitation to let in love, to allow that to meet the perception that I am too damaged to be loved…Borrowing and inviting in the Christ mind and a bigger sense of the wisdom of life to be present and allow myself to connect so I can find a way to be present to myself. WHAT a gift!! Thank you Kevin!!
