The Big IF in Life Version Update Notes
Re Updates (from the original publication of 8-3-16 to date, 9-19-16) Aside from typography, grammar, punctuation, and format changes, here’s the most notable changes from the original to V1.2 (Kindle intro) to V1.2.1 (paperback revision).
Chapter 2 footnote was added: 5*To further your insights, tune in to the Edge of TRUTH online radio for shows that discuss aspects of this book. Here’s an easy access link to the Author’s listings: http://sharonquinn.net/broadcasts
Chapter 3 paragraph emphasis: Does this flip on a light bulb for you? AS-IS Awareness is not a luxury; it is Divine “survival” in life! Thus, the roots of Enlightenment (AS-IS Awareness) are made clear as being our route to healing.
Chapter 3 reorganized the paragraph into a bullet-point list: It induced “the IF” to wobble and lose its coherent, cohesive centering. It started to generate errors and caused these gradually worsening, destabilizing shifts:
- HOME went from Infinity to mortality,
- Consciousness degraded from Original Gnosis of Pure Awareness to amnesia, mystery, and exteriorization,
- Thinking shifted from ‘thinking things through’ to ‘autopilot,’ wild guessing, and mindlessness, and
- Emotion drifted from Unconditional Love to unqualified fear.
Chapter 4 paragraph emphasis concluding the chapter: Now for the conundrum’s underbelly— Will you face and push through to the accuracy so that you can embrace its legitimacy?
Re tragic loss of SELFGnosis® Awareness: More fundamentally, your Love (Oneness Intelligence) has degraded into emotional fears, codependency, and resentments, and your Light (Original SELFGnosis® Intelligence) has degraded into mental beliefs, ego logic, and confusion. That is a trinity of unholy breakdowns supporting all kinds of gaps of separation and resistance. :-(
Re coincidence: Thus, it has meaning, cohesion, and coherency; nothing is random or without rhyme and reason—that would be insanity! God does NOT create insanity or its chaos.
Re going in circles around “the if”: …around the if-choice. Jail is “the if” momentum concretized, and…
Re-worked the paragraph: Explaining life’s suffering and its randomness leads us to logical reasoning that reflects not only a game strategy of survival at all costs, but also a stratagem of many lessons to learn. This compelling logic implies a virtuous meaning that trains us to covet striving as desirable, because it enables us to grow and mature in consciousness—by a trail of tears weathering trials by fire.
Re-worked the poem for better flow:
… When wielding the TRUE end-of-life’s ‘knife,’ You’ll be slicing the veil and merging Into an eternity with happiness rife.
Indeed, Life’s end is NOT the end at all, as they say— Quite the opposite, REALLY, in every way . . . Which Consciousness reality is your resonance with, eh?!
About the Author—an after thought responding to reader feedback: Now that you’ve read through this book once, you know the quality of the information. It may even seem too simple to be TRUE, but don’t let that sense fool you. You’ve hit pay dirt! You need to spend some quality time with it so you’ll notice that there’s so much more.
The words, the juxtaposition of wording, the placement of phrases, and the spelling make up a richly laden text. Only by reading it many times and studying will more become apparent to you.
Vital permissions hang in the balance that only you can grant. Therefore, I will make a suggestion, which I hope you will consider seriously for your own sake. It’s your consciousness growth that is at stake here, right?
To solidly win back your heart for your Divine SELF, I wholeheartedly suggest you reread this little consciousness primer at least 13 times. Why 13? It is a 3-in-1 number, so it has Sacred aspects and power. The power of thirteen will surely prime the pump of your ‘thinking juices’ so that your fears of change, doubts, and vacillation will flow out of your psyche, thereby giving you a clearer state of mind.
In this do-it-yourself manner (using the power of 13), you can do some positive “fracking” that will shake up the rigidity of your comfort zone and make it softer, more resilient, and more receptive to expansion. Besides that, you will gain the additional benefit of increasing your ability to grok what is necessary for taking your next steps.
New insights and expanded understanding will come with each re-read. Everyone will discover something that escaped their attention the first or second time around.
And only YOU can be the benefactor of this new thought igniting your Heart-of-Hearts into action for your very own HOME-COMING, which is so much more than merely another realization on your radar of possibilities.
With each read you sink your awareness a bit deeper into the hidden gold of this message and into your sense of how this wonderful shift can become your ongoing REALITY, here and now, and forever more. It can evolve into an empowering, comfortable space and not remain some fantastic dream.
Presently, I know of no other way to begin the freeing process of neutralizing deeply ingrained religious-spiritual programming and its patterns of agreement (which have erected our “thinking in a box” paradigms) than by experiencing each mindful re-read.
Doing so at your own pace will gently free your mind and heart. And gradually, you will feel a release from inherited agreements you no longer hold as sacrosanct. It’s okay to change your mind. More so, it’s okay to grow, and to evolve your consciousness, and to break out of that “box.”
This freedom will give you the confidence you deserve to reclaim your ability to think on your own two feet for your own God-Good. You’ve got all you need ‘in ya’! From a SELFGnosis® viewpoint, I know this is so. Carpe Diem!
