I AM HERE: Spirit, Heart, Body


A guided meditation through the windows of perception: Consciousness, Awareness and Emptiness from spiritual teachers and authors Bart ten Berge and Georgi Y. Johnson

Now is the time to open the inner windows of perception and to allow the ecstasy, bliss and passion of creation. I AM HERE


The powerful wakefulness of consciousness allows, generates, penetrates and releases experience. This is the blissful light of awakening through which we can witness all things, even consciousness itself.

Consciousness can divide, multiply, focus and create. It is a protector, a teacher, a gatekeeper and that which surrenders all that magnificent power and freedom to aspects greater than itself.

With our consciousness, we organize linear time — from the 24-hour clock, through to the construction of sequences of cause and effect, thus composing our stories, processes and understanding our direction.

Within individual consciousness is the deep imprint of the highly special manifestation of the individual, unique in the universe, moment by moment.

As consciousness moves into deeper embodiment in physical form, it emanates the experience of bliss.

At the eye of consciousness is the witness: that which sees and records all manifestation as it emerges into the field of knowledge.

Through our consciousness, we can enter the stillness of silence and become blessed with the universal presence of peace.


The inclusive plane of awareness softens, accepts, blesses and blends with the miracle of phenomenon, allowing all polarity at the junction of heaven and earth and of one soul with others.

Awareness opens emotional memory, or sentient time. This is the time needed for feelings associated with human life to be processed, integrated and released back to source.

It is the carrier of unconditional love and can open ecstasy. It blows over and through space and form. It flows with rivers of life across the rifts inherent in creation. It is the harbinger of unity, a field of existential integration into embodiment, the vehicle of empathy and the destiny of compassion.

At the source of pure awareness is the observer — that which contains all phenomena unconditionally, from within and behind each particle of experience.

Through our awareness, we can open the inheritance of our qualities or talents, and behind that, reside in the stillness of being, present in the sanctity of universal love.


Containing it all, perception through emptiness is the source of inherent liberation from experience. It is present in the space between and within each atom and particle. It is the infinite backdrop of physical form.

Moving with a skill to disillusion, it brings a clear sight that perceives the universal backdrop to every miracle of creation and destruction.

Within the dimension of emptiness, all transient form is empowered with the fullest right to exist. Perceiving through and beyond all things, emptiness opens a passion of service to life itself.

Within perception through emptiness is an allowance of physical time — the life cycles of birth and death, growth and aging, inherent to the physical plane.

Perception through emptiness is existential, as the transience of all phenomena affirms the indivisibility of existence itself, before, within and behind all manifestation.

Through emptiness, we can access the stillness of intransience and find infinite strength in the universal fact of unity.
