Who you are is from before time was. Time is a concept made to measure and therefore “give reality” to man’s existence within an illusion. Matter is held together by thought and the belief in (and the need for) a bodily identity.
Mind cannot die. Mind is eternal and is beyond the realm of time and space. When awareness of self has expanded beyond a limited bodily identity, time and space are literally in the hands of the miracle-worker.
When Lucy finds herself caught up in a drug-trafficking nightmare, it appears to be the worst situation imaginable. A packet of drugs is surgically implanted in her stomach and when it begins to leak, she experiences a transformation of consciousness that takes her all the way to total transcendence from human consciousness to pure awareness.
When the mind is totally focused in the present, and aware of Self, mind wandering ceases. When you know who you are, nothing of this world is wanted or desired, and therefore there is nothing to fear. Nothing can be lost when who you are is everything. This is complete fearlessness.
All that is blocking the awareness of Self and total freedom, are obstacles: beliefs and thoughts. At a certain point in the spiritual journey, all obstacles fall away—they can no longer be believed as real when there is awareness of Self, because “nothing real can be threatened.” (In-2) Who you are cannot die.
In the flow of the Spirit’s purpose, everything is simple and absolutely focused. Convincing and explaining are unnecessary to those joined in purpose, because the direction is clear and obvious. It is felt. It is not personal; it just is.
Lucy calls on Pierre Del Rio to join her in a very precise mission. Within seconds he recognizes the authority and clarity coming through her, and he follows her directions without question. It is only when he tries to use his past learning that they experience disharmony, but again, within seconds, Del Rio sees that Lucy is obeying a much higher law than those of this world. Her mind has dominion over the world of time and space, and he can’t help but join her.
Del Rio has an essential part to play in the plan. Lucy does not need him in a personal sense, because the power and the strength coming through her are not of this world. However, his companionship and his support are absolutely essential for her to complete her earthly mission. Extension is the Spirit’s purpose within this world, and so Lucy’s mission is to share her knowledge in a way that supports her brothers to expand their awareness of mind.
The ego knows only ownership, monetary wealth, and personal power. It will stop at nothing to gain and maintain control. This movie shows clearly that illusions battle only with themselves. The Spirit knows not of the ego’s goals or purposes, and therefore does not engage in this realm of thinking. The two thoughts systems do not meet at all.
The point of power is a still point in the mind, where awareness is unified. Time is simultaneous, and when this is truly seen, identification is no longer as a person in time, but as the mind that sees it all from a higher perspective.
Having full awareness of the bigger picture, Holy Spirit can give directions, and knows exactly what is coming because awareness is so expanded. Nothing is unknown because all thought is accessible. Everything is vibration/energy. Phone lines can be accessed, memory can be accessed, “others’ thoughts” can be accessed—all can be used for the Spirit’s purpose because nothing is blocked by limiting beliefs. All is mind.
When Lucy taps into this awareness there is nothing that cannot serve her singular purpose. Matter is made of thought. Characters are also thoughts in the mind. When the direction of thinking is totally under conscious control, then not only can one’s own body be morphed and moved by thought, but so can “other” bodies and things. It seems as if these are all under Lucy’s personal control but because there is not personal desire behind her actions, she is simply moving in the direction given her so that everything serves this plan and nothing can stop it.
At one point Lucy experiences her body disappearing from her awareness (mystical experience). As she has not reached 100% yet (completely transcended into knowing that she is purely mind), she uses a drug to maintain her bodily identity for a while longer. When she is ready to let it all go completely, she gives herself over to the experience, with no desire to hold onto anything of this world.
As Professor Norman teaches in his lectures on the human mind, the purpose of cells is either immortality or reproduction. To reproduce is to share/pass on—and in this world, the purpose of life becomes about reproduction of a species, which maintains linear existence and identity. To the Spirit, sharing and passing on is the extension of awareness of truth, of Self. The decision to go for awakening 100%, now, is the decision to know thy Self as the immortal being that you are.
