The River flows in its own place (space) and at its own pace (time). It is autonomous. You cannot control it. The River is the vehicle by which we mature. Allow yourself to think too highly (narcissistically) or too lowly (meekly) of yourself in the 1st Stage, and you wind up in the land on one side or the other of the River, and there you will stay in Childhood not able to reach the Gate between Childhood and Adolescence until you think realistically (authentically; truthfully) OF yourself. Allow yourself to feel too highly (manic) or too lowly (depressed) in the 2nd Stage, and you wind up in the land on one side or the other of the River, and there you will stay in Adolescence not able to reach the next Gate between Adolescence and Adulthood until you feel realistic (authentic; truthful) IN yourself. When you’ve reached the Gate into Adulthood (3rd Stage or 3rd Heaven) and it opens, you will have deemed yourself complete (confident) and trustworthy (truthful) on ALL accounts. No longer will there be lands on each side of the River because the River will have become a Great Sea called YOU teeming with Life (Love) with your own streams of life (love) flowing to wherever you want it to go.
Key Harbor of Each Stage or Heaven
In these harbors, you will find the key that opens the gate ahead in each stage or heaven:
Before 1st Heaven: Awareness. Having an awareness (thought) of anything that pops into the mind. The key is to realize that awareness is only awareness rather than physically or compulsively react to it.
1st Heaven: Understand. Understanding is knowing the full truth about something through communicating with it or that which created it in some form. No middle person and no going off of someone else’s interpretation of it. If you want the real truth, go to the source. This will alienate you from 90% of all people of the world (1st Stage) because these people do not believe you are worthwhile or deserved to directly meet the source. But you are and have always been. Mental understanding or knowledge begins with assessing and ending with prejudicially (unrealistically or falsely) thinking you know what it means. You may have some truth but not all of it. Truth (Loving Yourself) calms the conscious mind where thoughts manifest, so you will become calmer as you go through this harbor. However, at the beginning of the 2nd Heaven, your prejudice or arrogance will be tested.
2nd Heaven: Accept. Acceptance is the end of arrogance and the beginning of confidence. You come to accept reality or the Real Truth (Loving Others) for what it is. It is what it is. Again, Truth calms the mind, so you will become even more calmer in this heaven than the first because Real Truth calms the subconscious or personal unconscious mind where feelings manifest. You have faced it for what it really is, and you have made it through the test of the desert or woods or valley of the shadow of death or whatever you wish to call it and accepted the Real or unprejudicial Truth that no feeling can overcome. The feeling will still come but not you will never be overcome by it.
3rd Heaven: Let Go. To let go is to allow yourself to be delivered into peace. You have experienced enough in your devotion to your unconditionally-loving spirit that you have become confident in the world by having become wise (truly knowing and understanding the root motivations) of the world. You are in control; the world doesn’t control you. And to be in control absolutely, you must let go of the world altogether. It is then that you are untouchable to and of the world. Only then will you have Absolute Truth (Loving Everyone as One; yourself and others) that is peace or Heaven-on-Earth. Hence, the root of the Golden Rule. The more you let go, the more peace you have until you die, where and when you will have All or Only Truth (All or Only Love) that is God. Then you will realize that one’s collective unconscious is the driving force of all life and the living and you (your ego) is not it. The more you let go, the more you will be absorbed or immersed into the Sea and its water’s ebbing and flowing of concentrated Love that is our final resting place where our conscious is part of our unconscious, able to experience it in both thought and feeling.
How the Model Corresponds to Human Development (Maturation)
1st Stage Childhood: Forming egocentric relationship of self (small s) and consciously understanding of the world around self. Under direct protection of some form of family institution from the passive-aggressive world. Concentration is on understanding (mentally knowing of) the spirit within vs the world relationship by adults in the 3rd Stage. Living consciously as one makes it through the world. Everything comes from one’s conscious.
2nd Stage Adolescence: Forming relationship of self for spirit (esteem) within, thus forming true self-esteem connection (true love in oneself relationship) and a true identity (Self; capital S) by self (small s) eventually marrying (conjoining, integrating with) one’s spirit and becoming one completed (confident; perfected) Self (capital S). Under indirect support of some form of family institution to aid in overcoming (maturing past) the world. Living consciously of one’s personal unconscious as one makes it between the world and one’s soul. Everything comes from one’s subconscious.
3rd Stage Adulthood: Forming truly loving (intimate) relationships with the collective of all creations in all stages of maturity through the wisdom found in one’s 2nd Stage from one’s spirit with the sole concentration of giving life to them through one’s capable true love for them only by living permanently in one’s home (soul). Living consciously of one’s unconscious by living in one’s soul. Everything comes from one’s personal unconscious.
How the Model Corresponds to Ancient Greek Forms of Love
Believe to Understand: Storge or Familiar Love (Getting to Know)
Understand to Accept: Philia or Affectionate Love (Becoming a True Friend)
Accept to Complete: Eros or Intimate Love (Falling in Love)
Complete to Heaven-on-Earth: Agape or Selfless Love (Giving and Letting Go)
How the Model Corresponds to Jungian (Analytical Psychology) and Brain Location
Spiritual Childhood = First Heaven (Where Love is only Mentally Understood) = Conscious (Arrogant Doing from ignorance and ending in knowledge of, a.k.a., Logical or Arrogant or Human Being) = reasoning that which you can see in front of you. Location: Cerebral Cortex
Spiritual Adolescence = Second Heaven (Where Love in the Heart Begins) = Personal Unconscious or Subconscious (Unconfident Doing from knowledge and ending in wisdom, a.k.a., Logical + Emotional or Humane Being) = that which you can imagine (see) within you. Location: Limbic System
Spiritual Adulthood = Third Heaven (Where True Love in the Soul Exists) = Collective Unconscious (Confident Doing from wisdom and ending in love, a.k.a., Logical + Emotional + Spiritual or Loving Being) = that which you cannot see but can still sense its existence. Location: Prefrontal Cortex
The following is an article describing the above. Note in the figure later in this webpage how Love (Second and Third Stages) is invisible to the mental 1st Stage. In other words, how love is blind.
Emotion, Brain, & Behavior Laboratory Studying the brain and body correlates of emotion, from reaction to regulation
The Neuroscience of Love Posted on December 8, 2014 by Giovanna Castro
Love is blindness [Invisible]
The frontal cortex is the center of executive functioning, judgement, and logic, all of which get thrown overboard in love. This is due to decreased activation in this brain area, which translates to a “suspension in judgement or a relaxation of judgemental criteria by which we judge other people” (Zeki 2007). We seek for people to love us in spite of our shortcomings; turns out they literally don’t see them! Or at least they judge them less harshly because their frontal cortex is drugged by infatuation. [This means we succumb to greater loving acceptance of those whom we love — ourselves and others — by decreasing mental [literal and legalistic] interpretations that are associated with the 1st Stage.]
Our infatuation produces a decrease in the brain areas associated with [1st Stage] “mentalizing” and “theory of mind,” namely the prefrontal cortex, parieto-temporal junction, and the temporal poles. These are the structures responsible for being able to [5th and 6th Harbor] identifying other people’s emotions and ascribing reasons for them. Zeki (2007) explained this finding by highlighting that these areas are implicated in the conceptual distinction between the self and the other, therefore their deactivation [(second death in the Book of Revelation)] is necessary for reaching the [10th Harbor] merging and unity lovers seek with each other. The neuroscience proves it, love is illogical [without ego].
[True Love is impartial. It is not subjective. It offers itself to whomever wants it. And it cannot be reasoned (labelled or controlled) by any person. When it comes to Love, any book or text is ordered by man, missing time and full truths, and thus, incomplete. For Love can only be experienced so that its wisdom replaces any reasoning. Therefore, the only way to leave the world is to experience Love of oneself and others. A person may believe that suicide is one way, but you only come back to start wherever you left off. No, you must move forward first finding, accepting, and merging with the Love that is in you and then giving your life (love) to others.]

How the Model Corresponds to Husserl’s Pure Phenomenology Philosophy
There is a transition from “What do I want or need” to “What do I believe exists that can help get me there”. This is what I call Original Transition or the Transcendence (Transformation) from Nothing or Something.
Husserl may say that My First Heaven is for what Husserl coins Intentionality; consciousness for the knowledge of or about something and its direction to the phenomenon. Awareness of or knowing of (noesis) the Spirit and trying to know the definition of. It is then presented or represented with what you imagine, a.k.a., Imaginary Variation, the Spirit to be in physical form (noema). The direction to the target is the River (or Modality of Being on the Stream of Consciousness) given by its flow (time-consciousness) in the direction to the Sea of The Living (or Freedom) in the Third Heaven.
The second transition or transcendence (transformation) or transcendental phenomena is coined by Husserl as Eidetic Reduction and is movement from the First Heaven to the Second Heaven (from fact to essence, knowledge of to knowing, person to spirit, letter of the law to the Spirit of the Law). This is done by our own decision to “move out”, and thus, by our own will.
The Second Heaven is for the insight (wisdom) of the noema (Spirit) and the true meaning or essence brought by experience in walk with and obeying the Spirit. This insight comes after the Harbor of Act and the subsequent Harbor of Accept. It comes in the Harbor of Devote. Husserl may call this harbor what he coined as the Horizon of the experience.
There is a third transition or transcendence (transformation) from the Second Heaven to the Third Heaven. But it can only be performed by the spirit and not by our own will. We are handed over to God (the True Love or In Love) in the Third Heaven by the Spirit when only the Spirit knows we are ready and not before. When this happens, we are confident within fully trusting the Spirit; the kind of trust the Spirit has for God (the realm or essence of love that is unconditional for everyone; the full body or collective).
As far as I know, Husserl didn’t get this far. But if it was said in German, we could call this third transitional movement Übergabe Transcendence (Transformation) to the point of completion or the complete us. Über meaning “moving about” and gabe meaning “gift”. We become a Trinity to which we later hand over (give as we move about) ourselves in the kind of Love that is God to all those in the body or collective that we come in contact to the best of our human abilities. This is so that they too can traverse the River by the wanting motivation toward that which we have; the Being that we are; the Target we’ve become by way of their own Geist or Spirit. We (our egos or selves small s) are bound by our spirit (small s) that is borne by the Spirit (capital S), and our spirit is bound in us, and we and our spirit (a.k.a., Self capital s) are bound together by the true or “in love” (a.k.a. Love capital L) that is God.
The Third Heaven is the Target where you and your spirit unite with God that is Unconditional Love. If the knowledge (non-physical property of the mind) of conditional love can be suspended in the First Heaven by performing epoche (putting aside the mind’s prejudiced view or bracketing conditional through reasoning to act in unconditional through faith) and thus imagining unconditional love (a.k.a., Love with a capital L) that you first must believe exists, then the insight of God from its Spirit (Representation) is the Pointer in the Second Heaven to the Target that is the Third Heaven.
This only works if the noema that you imagine is as real to you on the inside to what you deem is real on the outside and you actually walk with it. You will never reach your target through someone else’s religion, that can only exist on the outside. Another’s religion has its own unique spirit that is not necessarily unconditionally loving. You cannot be a trinity with someone else’s spirit, and thus, you cannot experience its true meaning, motives, and all of its genuine insights. Self-efficacy continues to emerge as you journey the River with your spirit inside you until you reach your target–the unity or trinity of you, your spirit, and God as one on this earth.
How the Model Corresponds to Christianity (C), Buddhism (B), Hinduism (H), Neuroscience (N) and Psychology (P) Similarities
You are innocent (acceptable) in truth (how you were made in God’s love). It is your responsibility on how you perceive this truth and act on your perception. What you think is flawed (bad or sinful) by the world’s standards, may actually be fated (realized by you and beneficial to the Body) when you follow and obey God’s Spirit of Truth (Unconditional Love) in you. This is the bridge each of us must walk over. The only reason you believe yourself to be a sinner is because you either think too highly or too lowly of yourself. Healthy people don’t think about sin. – Tim DiMella
The Following Three Slides are from my webpage presentation. Please note that I only discovered these similarities to B, H, N, and P discussed below just recently by researching comparisons to the Model (C) thus verifying the Model which is needed by the World but not in the 3rd Stage of Confidence in the Spirit of Unconditional Love that gives to us only Truth. Tim 9 Jul 2021
I cover the basics because going in depth of all the above similarities would take pretty much forever. What it comes down to is that everything that a person perceives and creates is of and from the same model (that which is in and of the architecture of the brain) and that every denomination or field of study in the world is based on the same construct; just different languages as in the story of the City and Tower of Babel. Thus all are equal; no denomination or field of thinking is better than any other. They all come from the 3rd Stage to which the Self (self + spirit integration or marriage) becomes One (fully intimate) with in the deepest form of love (i.e., God) who is authentic (true) love.
SIDEWAYS (UNHEALTHY) THINKING VS FORWARD (HEALTHY) THINKING
The Middle Way (B) = The Narrow Path or The River or Vine/Trunk stemming from and to the 3rd Stage Sea, Garden, or Root (C) = Mārga (H) = Flow of the Assertive Pathway or Central Nervous System in the Brain contrasting that of aggression and passiveness (apathy) on opposite sides and evil manipulation (dark empathy). Aggression leads to Grandiose Narcissism, Sociopathy, and Machiavellianism from Psychopaths in the 1st Stage. Psychopaths can only attain cognitive knowledge (understanding) but not spiritual wisdom that comes in the 2nd Stage. The streams from the Unions on the Central Nervous System are all part of the Autonomous Nervous System (Sympathetic, Parasympathetic, and Enteric) (N).
Spiritual Wisdom or the Spirit’s Wisdom is invisible to those in the 1st Stage because it can only be gained by obeying God’s Spirit of Unconditional Love through the 2nd Stage. Jesus called all the lands of the 2nd Stage and 3rd Stage the Kingdom of God. Only those who choose to be Baptized in the 6th Harbor after having the true knowledge (preparation or understanding) from the 5th Harbor can one enter into the actual Kingdom of God, or what Buddhists call Buddha Land. Thus, no church in the world can be the Kingdom of God. The 1st Stage is of God as in a child of God, but it is only by going through Gate #2 that you are with God being guided by only your faith (what only you alone can see on the inside of you and nobody else) in God’s spirit in you (a.k.a, the Buddha-Nature or Luminous Mind (B); or Wise Mind (P)). And you will be guided into all truth that is you.
Metaphorically, in the Book of Genesis in the Bible, Adam and Eve were aligned with God on the path in the 1st Stage, and when they went passive-aggressive in eating the apple in the Harbor of Knowledge (Understanding) they had to take the right path to the Land of Passive. They were still in Childhood with God but their perception became skewed to the World View Hierarchy (up and down) instead of forward. They now had to deal with the Aggressors (Narcissists). It was only when Jesus came with the Truth were they able to once again find assertiveness (P) on the Path (C) and become again aligned with perceiving God and continue their maturation with their spirit. So then, its all about Understanding that realigns one’s perception in the direction to move forward in his/her life (P). No longer is Heaven above and Hell below. No longer is one ashamed (a passive trait) nor narcissistic (an aggressive trait) but assertive. And thus Heaven is only ahead of you as and if you continue to move forward.
Metaphorically, the Tower of Babel story (C) with peoples of the City (World Order, Institution, Church of the 1st Stage) wanting to build a tower (path through the 2nd Stage) to God can never be achieved by humans alone but only by humans following God’s Spirit of Unconditional Love. This is why Good will always eventually triumph over evil. It is also why nobody can make it to the 3rd Stage by human (exterior conscious) guidance but only by personal (interior conscious) guidance. One must separate from institutional churches to make his or her way through adolescence on his or her own with his or her own personal spirit within.
Protecting or Flood Gates (C) = Muns (B).
Gate 1 = Ilju-mun (B-Korean)
Gate 2 = Cheonwang-mun (Gate of the Devas or Heavenly Kings) (B-Korean) where Guardians guard the 2nd Stage from those not genuinely interested in following God’s Spirit of Unconditional Love within thus from Buddha’s/Jesus’ teachings to evil spirits. Don’t give your pearls (truths) to pigs said Jesus. In other words, trust only your spirit in you to discover your own truths. This is the only way you will become authentic.
Gate 3 = Buli-mun (Gate of Non-duality) or Haetal-mun (Gate of Deliverance) (B-Korean) = Gate of Oneness, Perfectedness, Wholeness, Completion, Absolute Confidence (C) = Gate of authentic-self or just Self (P).
The Path through the 3rd Stage is the Great Buddha Hall (B). See my painting of Gate 3 (a.k.a., Door 3) (C) entrance to the 3rd Stage and Great Buddha Hall.
There are 12 Harbors or Stops or Unions or Cranial Nerve Roots Nuclei (N) along the River or path or Vine/Trunk or where the streams or branches (Parasympathetic and Sensory ganglia or cell bodies of neurons) meet emerging from the Central Nervous System = Yogas (a.k.a., Churches). Some of the Hindu Orifices are of the the Sensory. The amount of churches with congregations continue to decrease as you go further along the River. The 1st Stage has the churches you see on the outside of you made up of the vast majority of humans. The 2nd Stage has a unique church within each person made up of you (self) and your spirit (esteem). When you get to the 3rd Stage, it is you who become your own unique and authentic single church transformed into one single Self by your marriage to your spirit and your spirit marriage to you. Now you know that the churches with the greatest numbers are the least mature of the churches; though they believe they are the leading church because of their great numbers.
Harbors/Stops/Unions #1 through #6 of the 1st Stage are the JÑĀNA Yogas (Churches).
Harbor/Stop/Union #7 of the 2nd Stage is the Karma Yoga (Church).
Harbors/Stops/Unions #8 and #9 of the 2nd Stage are the Bhakti Yogas (Churches).
Pursuit on the River or Path is Purusārtha.
Each person in the Kingdom is a Sect or Section or Branch or Church. The Figure above shows only one branching off from a union, but that is only because the amount of people from billions of strands at each harbor cannot be shown without going so deeply with a microscope. So from above, it only looks like a single thick strand or stream of consciousness.
Pertaining to Cranial Nerve Roots (N), I believe the neurons in each somehow correspond to each Harbor via the following abstract from https://pubmed.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/1721686/
Neurons with Access to the General Circulation in the Central Nervous System of the Rat: A Retrograde Tracing Study with Fluoro-Gold.
- PMID: 1721686
- DOI: 10.1016/0306-4522(91)90085-3
“Central nervous system neurons which have access to the general circulation were identified by injecting the retrograde tracer Fluoro-Gold peripherally. Fluoro-Gold does not penetrate the blood-brain barrier but is taken up by nerve terminals which project to areas supplied by fenestrated capillaries or to the periphery. Fluoro-Gold-accumulating neurons were present in the following regions or cell groups of the central nervous system: diagonal band of Broca; medial preoptic area; organum vasculosum of the lamina terminalis; subfornical organ; anterior periventricular area; paraventricular nucleus; arcuate nucleus; accessory magnocellular nuclei of the hypothalamus; motor neurons of cranial nerves III-VII, and IX-XII in the brainstem and spinal cord; autonomic ganglionic cells of cranial nerve III (Westphal-Edinger nucleus) in the mesencephalon and the intermediolateral column of the spinal cord; sensory ganglia of the cranial nerve V (mesencephalic trigeminal nucleus); and the C1-C2 and A2 adrenergic cell groups in the medulla. In addition, Fluoro-Gold-accumulating neurons were seen in the sensory ganglia of cranial and spinal nerves. Retrograde labeling with Fluoro-Gold can be combined with immunocytochemistry to identify the chemical messengers within Fluoro-Gold-labeled perikarya. Although a large number of neurons are labeled in the central nervous system with Fluoro-Gold when it is administered peripherally, this technique in combination with immunocytochemistry can be a powerful tool to identify selected neuronal systems in the central nervous system.”
The Aim in the World (a.k.a., World Order) in the 1st Stage of Childhood on the River looking sideways is Artha.
The Aim of Understanding (Knowledge) in the 1st Stage of Childhood on the River looking forward is Dharma.
The Aim of Acceptance (a.k.a., Accepting oneself human with human needs) in the 2nd Stage of Adolescence on the River looking forward is Kama.
The Aim of Deliverance (a.ka., Life or Giving Life) in the 3rd Stage of Adulthood (a.k.a., Authenticity) is Moksha.
It is my belief that wherever you stop on the River before death, you start up again there after death. This continues until you achieve Moksha. Thus, it could take hundreds if not thousands of lifetimes to achieve Moksha if you are not willing to advance on the River each time you are born on it. And yet, for some, it only takes one lifetime. Once you achieve Moksha (Completion, Perfection, Congruency, Integration), you no longer continue the samsara. You enter into Nirvana-with-a-Remainder (a.k.a., Heaven-on-Earth) to become a Deliverer (Teacher, Truth-teller) and then into Nirvana (Blissful Heaven) when you die. This is fair and just. Everyone must enter through the door and take the course (narrow path). No one can cheat spiritual maturation by going on ahead or by going around. Each harbor must be visited in sequence or it doesn’t work.
Truth = Ability to See = Lifting the Plank from one’s eyes or having only a little dust remaining
Trinity = I Am = Me (capital M) = Self (capital s) + Unconditional Love (God) = self (small s) + non-self + love = self + Spirit’s spirit within + God (in unconditional Love) as one in unity (indivisible).
The nine consciousness in Buddhism are within the three heavens. One through Eight Consciousness within the First and Second Heavens, and The Ninth Consciousness is the Third Heaven (called as such in the New Testament), also known as the “In Love With” Heaven.
The harbors of the First Heaven is where Jesus went to India to understand spirit (to understand who he is) from the mind. Understand is the 5th Harbor. Deciding to follow this spirit within by being baptized by John the Baptist was Jesus’ 6th Harbor. Facing his demons (greatest fear) in the desert alone with his spirit was Jesus’ 7th Harbor. And accepting God’s spirit within as truthful to its word was Jesus’ 8th Harbor. It was only in the 10th Harbor of Complete (Marry, Become One) that Jesus found his truth by becoming one with his spirit in God (the highest form of Love). It was in the 11th Harbor that Jesus gave life to others in his own and unique way, which is the meaning of the Harbor of Deliver; to Give Life to; to help those who suffer to find a greater happiness through your own sufferance. Only can a Self (person + spirit) through an involuntary letting go (climax or pinnacle of ultimate fulfillment (joy, bliss)) after having given life become a Trinity (person + spirit + God) reaching the unconscious (Holy of holies). This is the 12th Harbor. Jesus’ way was to die physically to self. The point is to die to self (i.e., let go of your ego). Allowing yourself to do so while living delivers you to Heaven-on-Earth because you retain even the faintest part of ego. Dying or the willingness to die for another in absolute selflessness (unconditional love) without thinking or hesitation delivers you to Heaven (into the Full Essence of God’s Delight). Because of Jesus’ death, you too can become such a trinity, but in your own unique way. In other words, dying to become a trinity is just the opposite of selfless and is fruitless.
The Christian Churches
In my direct experience, the Catholic Church is borderline insane. Only because they believe, they are just inside the Kingdom; in other words, just sane. Really, the Catholic Church never had a chance because Constantine was also borderline insane, where perhaps earlier, he was actually insane. Constantine made himself Holy Roman Emperor, and because of never going against what a pope deems, the Catholic Church will always remain this way. The dogmas of transubstantiation and actually believing the wine you are drinking is actually Jesus’ blood and the bread you are eating at communion is actually Jesus’ flesh is an example of such borderline insanity. Having 1500 years to mature, their dogmas prevent them from doing so.
In my experience, the Fundamental Mainstream Christian Churches stemming from Martin Luther, are also in the 1st Stage of Childhood by taking things so literal. Also in their lifetime, they yet to see and still retain many of the rites and dogmas of the Catholic Church like making congregations recite the Nicene Creed, which was created by Constantine in the gathering at Nicene.
I have no experience in the other churches or religions, only to say that they too are in the Childhood Stage if they take the Bible literally and deem it complete, where even Jesus said that when the Spirit comes, it will bring each of you all Truth if you follow it. No Christian Church I know allows you to follow your own spirit but only their interpretation of the Bible and Jesus’ words. These churches are, thus narcissistic, and will gaslight you if you remain meek (weak) minded.
In my experience, there are as many possible Christian religions as there are people on Earth. Those who follow a difference church than their own, have deep down deemed themselves ingenuine or unworthy to be their authentic selves. They hide behind their masks or the mask of the church.
SEE MY PROCESS BELOW
Each harbor you come to for the first time is known as a Primary Harbor. Having your focus on the name of that harbor, you go inside that land and travel to the names of the harbors before it now known as Places. For instance, if you reached the Harbor of Understand for the first time, then Understand would be your Primary Harbor for you to focus on. Then you would go visit the places of Believe (in the spirit), Ask (the spirit to come), Receive (the spirit by seeing its form clearly in your imagination), Commit (or Confess by telling the spirit that you need to understand), and then the main City of Understand (by having learned from what the spirit has told you). After you’re done, you would then venture on the River to the next harbor known as Decide, which would be your Primary Harbor to focus on, and so forth.
Note that at the Harbor of Complete, You will be who You are. And at the Harbor of Deliver (a.k.a., Share), you will begin to deliver you (i.e., all your knowledge, the wisdom of your spirit, and love or your Father which is the same as your complete self) with others. And that is when you will be the complete or entire or all of You and forever more be known as You who is the real and true you–the Truth–the culmination of the knowledge of you, the wisdom of your spirit, and the love of your Father as one complete Self known as You. And once you Understand that you are now the culmination of your Father, you, and your spirit in one, you will let go of who you were and leave behind–that is, be indifferent to–the people of the world who are ignorant and indignant and their ignorant and indignant ways, and you will accept the new You as absolute. On that day, you will begin to be the Devoted You to Delivering You to those with little dust in their eyes from within Your Heaven-on-Earth until You complete Your time with them on Earth. Then You will be Delivered to Heaven Itself.
