Creating the New Earth Together

       The Prince of Peace

“Whoever has come to know the world has found a corpse.
And whoever has found (this) corpse, of him the world is not worthy. . . .  If you do not abstain from the world, you will not find the kingdom.” —Jesus, The Gospel of Thomas

♦ ◊ ♦

The world is a corpse . . . so said the Master, the “Prince of Peace.”  Not the planet, just the world of man’s making.  Especially the world we’ve constructed of concrete, iron and plastic — of consumptive commercial enterprise, political polarization and division; of poverty, greed and avarice; of mass starvation and hysteria; of war and genocide.  That world is dead and is only sustained by the life-energy men and women pour into it, draining away their own life substance, their God-given birthright.

War is such a waste of life energy and natural resources.  Those who declare and conduct wars lose their lives just as surely as those who die on the battlefields.  And those who seek to profit from manipulating the masses and selling them false security are foolishly and deceivingly selling dishonest goods.  The lie of the serpent has always been a futile endeavor to be honest with dishonest good.  One cannot give what one doesn’t have oneself.  One cannot sell peace to a world at war with itself who does not own peace oneself.  Nor can one revive a corpse who has not the power to infuse flesh with life.  Best to put one’s efforts toward bringing forth a new world.  (The 1982 film Koyaanisqatsi . . . Life Out of Balance and needing a new beginning . . . comes to mind.)  A world out of balance is destined to topple.

LIFE IS A GIFT AND A MIRACLE  

I resonate with the sayings in the Gospel of Thomas. This saying by Jesus is powerfully resonating in my heart and mind as I approach writing this post:

“If the flesh came into being because of the spirit, it is a wonder.  But if the spirit (came into being) because of the body, it is a wonder of wonders. Yet I marvel at how this great wealth has taken up residence in this poverty.”

I marvel at how wonderous and mysterious is my own sustained incarnation after eighty-two years, and how this flesh body still pulsates with the breath of life.  I marvel at how my mind arises from my body to meet and share the Consciousness of God descending from Heaven above, a gift that connects me with my Creator making my personal world one, as heaven and earth are one.  This saying of Jesus brings sadness and hope into my heart:

“I stood in the middle of the world, and in flesh I appeared to them. I found all of them drunk. None of them did I find thirsty.  And my soul ached for the children of humanity, because they are blind in their heart, and they cannot see; for they came into the world empty, (and) they also seek to depart from the world empty.  But now they are drunk. (But) when they shake off their wine, then they will change their mind.”

Will we change our minds and our hearts? My hope is likely in vain. That was some twenty-two hundred years ago; not very long when one considers the length of a human lifespan — in terms of generations, perhaps as little as sixty-five or seventy. How much do you think the world has changed in such a short period of time?  Do you think the Master’s words still apply to this generation?  He is on record as having said “Heaven and earth shall pass away, but my words will not pass away.” I believe the man-made world is just as dead today as it was then.  That said, still . . .

“The Earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof; the world and they that dwell therein.  For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods.” 

The “ordinances” for the earth and its fullness are established upon the sea of Divine Consciousness, the Heaven for the unfolding of Earth’s journey through the Cosmos. Our part is to set them in the earth, to materialize creation. The true creator stays with his creation throughout the cycles of its existence, and according to astronomical predictions, this planet has several more billion years ahead of it . . . but not necessarily as it now is or has been.  Change is definitely afoot for the earth and for earthlings.

I’m preaching to the choir here, of course, just sharing the thoughts and meditations of my heart that started flowing in upon seeking, asking and knocking on the door of Heaven.  The rest of Psalm 24 wants to be shared here as well, perhaps as the focus for this post.

Who shall ascend into the hill of the Lord? or who shall stand in his holy place? He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive the blessing from the Lord, and righteousness from the God of his salvation. This is the generation of them that seek him, that seek thy face, O Jacob. Selah. 

Who was Jacob that his face would be sought by this generation?  He was, of course, the Father of the Nation of Israel, having received the blessing of Abraham, the father of his father Isaac, from whom he stole his brother Esau’s birthright and their father’s blessing. (The commentary and open forum the link above will take you to is insightful and worthy of your time.) The overarching answer to that question, of course, lies in the Akashic records of the several incarnations of the LORD of lords, who  was incarnate in the man Jesus — and that information lies in the realm of knowledge of a much higher order — which is not unavailable to us today.  According to the words of this psalm, the Lord was incarnate in Jacob as well.

We are in the Day of the “Second Coming” of the Christ , who was incarnate in a number of great beings of renown whose timely and appointed appearances are all part of the restoration of Man to his original state of oneness with the Creator.  The significance of Jacob’s “face” lies in the manner in which Jacob “wrestled with God” and therein proved his worthiness and stature of spirit to bring forth a nation¹ . . . and thereby initiate a cycle of restoration of Man to his rightful state of co-creator with God.  The story in the last chapters of Genesis — along with the dramatic episode of their wandering in the desert for forty-years as told in Exodus — are remarkable stories telling of the hardships the Nation of Israel suffered as the LORD God purified and chastened his children and proved them in the fire of love and truth.  From out of all they went through emerged the opportunity for life to be restored to the body of Man, the Body of God on Earth.  That restoration failed with Israel, and failed again with the re-initiation by the Lord of Love himself. 

This generation once again seeks the face of Jacob through whom the first opportunity of Man’s restoration was initiated . . . only that face today is the face of the Prince of Peace.  For it is peace the peoples of planet Earth now seek and for which we all yearn.  We will bring peace to the world when we look into the face of one another and see the face of God . . . and love what we see . . . what the pure of heart see.  In a sense, we have to wrestle with our traditional concept of who and what God is, just as Abraham wrestled with the angel of God over the tradition which required the sacrifice of his firstborn, Isaac, to Jehovah.  With that denial of tradition, Abraham brought to a close the era of human sacrifice.  Today we sacrifice human lives in the marketplace of Wall Street and in the battlefields of warring nations.  To find peace we need to wrestle with and overcome our own addiction to war and to that which we seek to gain by waging war . . . war of any and all kinds.

(The painting of the face of Jesus at the top, “The Prince of Peace,” was done by Akiane Kramarik at the age of 8. According to her story, she felt asked and compelled from within her spirt to paint it.  If you click on her name you can listen to her amazing story. She also painted this one.)

I’ve come to love this One, Jesus (aka Jeshua), in whom the Christ incarnated to bring love into the world and thereby initiate the final cycle of redemption and restoration of Man to his true state of oneness with His Heavenly Father, a oneness which he proclaimed for himself and exemplified to his disciples and to the world during his life and brief public ministry.  I’ve come to know him as my Self, as the One I Am, for I am, and you are, as much a son or a daughter of the Father as He is.  We are in the days of his “Second Coming,” this time through the hearts of human beings — and as the Son of Man coming upon the clouds of the heaven of consciousness. These final words of Psalm 24 describe what we all must do to welcome His coming and complete the cycle of restoration that He initiated two-thousand year ago.

Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory?The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle. Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.

I leave you to ponder these words and those of this blog post, which I’m feeling may well be my last post on Healing Tones.  Thank you for sharing the thoughts and meditations of my heart. May God bless and keep you safe from harm in the loving arms of The Prince of Peace.  Aumen 

Be love.  Be loved

¹    “Jacob wrestles with God before going to meet his brother. What do we make of it? Obviously God could beat Jacob in a wrestling match so it seems that it may be that Jacob was having doubts or that God needed to test him. The NJBC says, “Jacob is truly a man of blessing, but this time he wrestles for it and receives it from God (in contrast to his cheating Esau in order to receive Isaac’s blessing.” Jacob has just prayed to God and laid his thoughts bare. Now he has wrestled with him and won. Now Jacob is ready to become the father of Israel. As Orual asked in C.S. Lewis’s masterpiece, Till we have faces, “How can the gods meet us face to face till we have faces?” Also, “I saw well why the gods do not speak to us openly, nor let us answer. Till that word can be dug out of us, why should they hear the babble that we think we mean? How can they meet us face to face till we have faces?’” Jacob now has a face and is ready to become the father of a great nation. First he must make things right with his own brother. Jacob may have been struck by earnest doubts in the face of possible bloodshed and death but this meeting was too important for covenantal history. God had to intervene.” (The BioLogos Forum)

Jesus said: “You are pleased when you see your own likeness. When you see your images that came into being before you did, immortal and invisible images, how much can you bear?” —The Gospel of Thomas

♦ ◊ ♦

HUMAN FLESH HAS BEEN GENETICALLY MANIPULATED for centuries, but at no time more so than today.  We humans eat heartedly of the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, which is simply judgement.  In judging ourselves, we never seem to be good enough, and are constantly coming up with new ways to improve on our bodies and stave off the inevitable shrinkage of our skin and depletion of our muscles, and death itself.  Self-improvement — not to be confused with self-care — is a life-time preoccupation with many, which includes “working on myself,” mentally, physically, emotionally and spiritually.  One may ask “Who is it that’s doing the self-improvement ?” The answer, of course, is the outer human self, aka the human ego. 

Literally the term human ego means “human I am,” which sells us short, for we are not “only human.”  We are human beings . . . beings incarnate in human bodies.  Our being is perfect . . . and our human bodies are also perfect the way they are for the beings we are to incarnate and live a fruitful life of service here on Earth. 

That said, I find it intriguing that we have the inclination . . . even developed the capacity and technology . . . to genetically modify the human body.  Why is this so deeply ingrained in human consciousness?  Did the LORD God not do a good enough job forming Adam out of clay, and later on creating Eve from a rib taken out of Adam’s side?  This sounds like there was some kind of medical science and surgical technology in use in an advanced civilization.  Perhaps remnants from Atlantis who had survived its destruction and then set about to re-create the human species.  Then Moses came along and did his best to make sense of human history and its cataclysmic past by composing an allegorical storyline to which the Israelites could relate. Thus The Book of Genesis — and the entire Old Testament that followed, which tells the story of man’s return to his Creator . . . a return that is yet to be fully realized.  The best we have is religion as a means of keeping humans believing a return to oneness with God is possible, only after we die. 

EUGENICS

Eugenics has been around for centuries. Webster’s Dictionary defines eugenics: “The practice or advocacy of controlled selective breeding of human populations (as by sterilization) to improve the population’s genetic composition. In 1883 Francis Galton, in England, coined the term “eugenics” to encompass the idea of modification of natural selection through selective breeding for the improvement of humankind.”  (Jeremiah A. Barondess ) 

Why would we want to improve humankind ?  Was not Man created in the image and likeness of his Creator?  Is there some question about the story of man’s origins in the Book of Genesis?  

THE TWO CREATION EVENTS IN GENESIS 

In the Book of Genesis is recorded the formation of the first man, Adam, and how, and for what explicit purpose, he was formed: “…and there was not a man to till the ground . . . and the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed.” (Genesis 2:5-7) 

Thus was the story told in the Sumerian cuneiform texts in pre-Biblical days, by oral tradition, and in ancient Sumerian/Babylonian “Creation Myths.” It was finally carved in stone, so to speak, by Moses to become the first Book in the Old Testament of the Bible.  (I write about this in an earlier post, “The Two Trees of Eden,” which adds yet another, and quite interesting, scenario of the creation myth.)

What really took place when the human race was created and placed on Earth? What Moses reveals in his account is that there were two distinct and separate events wherein the creation of man took place: the first in Genesis 1 and the second in Genesis 2.

In the first account, God created Man in his own image and likeness, male and female, as a spiritual and immortal being; a creator like unto Himself. In the second account, the LORD God formed man out of the “dust of the ground”–– out of clay.  

Of course this is all symbolic and allegorical and not to be interpreted literally.  Clay symbolizes the earth, indicating the physical material origin of our flesh bodies.  This clay man became “a living soul” when the LORD God breathed into his nostrils the breath of life.   

According to the two versions of the creation of man, male and female, they were first created by God, in God’s own image and likeness, where they shared the heaven with God and His creative work.  This heaven is the same heaven that was created first before the earth in the first sentence of chapter 1: “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.”  The earth was yet “without form, and void.” The heaven, then, was and is a vibrational sphere, a virtual imaginal realm, where the earth and all created things were and are images in a pre-form state ready to be given form in the earth. 

In Genesis 1 God created the heaven . . . and the earth as an invisible pre-form image in the heaven, not yet in form on earth.  All this was done on the sixth day of Creation, after which God’s work was finished, perfect and complete . . . and God “rested from all his work which God created and made” on the seventh day.   

In chapter 2, we read: “And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.”  In Genesis 2, then, what was created in the vibrational realm of the heaven, as a pre-form image, took form through Man in the earth. 

KNOCK AND IT SHALL BE OPENED   

I have dwelt and meditated upon these first two books of Genesis for the past two years, thinking that perhaps Moses simply repeated the story of the first event, only with more specific description of the creating process.  I even went so far as to suspect a rogue creator-being had attempted to replicate the Creator’s work and made a man-servant, a slave, to do his tilling in his garden. 

Today, my seeking, asking and knocking has opened a window in Heaven through which a wonderful blessing has poured forth, and the lights came on in my consciousness.  I will attempt to describe what I saw when this window opened, as well as provide a link to a presentation that Uranda (Lloyd A. Meeker) gave back in 1953 addressing the Creation of Man as the means through which the things of God come into form on earth out of the heaven.  The following sentence captures the essence of his presentation: 

So we see that it was man’s business, having dominion on earth, the manifestation of God’s power, it was through man that all of these things took form on earth, without any exception, no matter what it was. . . .

The Creator of heaven and earth created man (male and female) in his own image and likeness, and formed him as a means of conveying the images of creation out of the heaven and into form on earth.  In the context of BIOCENTRISM — a subject I explored earlier in a series of posts, this one entitled “Behold I Create Something from Nothing”— the Creator needed man’s consciousness — and his pineal single eye — to observe by discernment vibrational images placed by God in the heaven intended to be given form on earth — and by such observation collapse the wave function of such energetic images so that they may become subatomic particles as they materialize in form on the physical material plane.  Thus do the things of Spirit in Heaven appear in form on earth through the creating function of man.   

This is both crucial and timely in relation to the Day in which we are now living — poised on the threshold of a final opportunity to return to our purpose as Man, male and female — in the Present and on the edge of creation where the future becomes the present, and the New Heaven is prepared by God to give birth to the New Earth through Man restored. I have seen a livestream filming of the creating activity at the edge of creation where waves of invisible energy collapse and particles appear to jump the threshold into visible molecules that make up the world of creation. Cynthia Bourgeault describes this dynamic between the imaginal realm and the realm of creation eloquently in The Meaning of MARY MAGADALENE :

Between image and analogue there is a dynamic reciprocity as they simultaneously articulate the same reality in two different realms. Image and analogue are in continuously creative tension receiving and fulfilling each other, and it is in the energy exchange that their indivisible wholeness is made manifest.  Images do not arise in this realm, however their origin is several cosmoses more subtle, and trouble begins when this fundamental cosmic law is forgotten.

Heaven and earth are inseparably one.

We who are awake and conscious of our roles in tending the garden of consciousness for Life’s creations are feeling the pangs of pregnancy and delivery as we labor in love to be both midwives and stewards in the birthing of what will be our future and the future of our children and their progeny: a New Earth experience. 

A NEW EARTH, NOT AN IMPROVED OLD EARTH 

We labor in vain to change and improve upon created things, both God’s and our own, after they have taken form.  We may make them better in our own eyes, but they are still of the old earth.  We can, however, abide in the stillness of the Present and Eternal Moment and receive what’s new coming down from God out of Heaven.  Our own bodies are being re-created anew every second of every day by means of “manna” raining down from heaven via the vibrational sphere around our earthen forms and through the magical chemistry and alchemy afforded by our Pineal gland.  I see it raining down in pulsating waves when I’m sharing attunement, and especially in ecstatic meditation, sometimes tasting its ambrosia-like sweetness. This was spoken of by St. John in Revelation: 

He that hath an ear, let him hear what the Spirit saith unto the churches; To him that  overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it.  (Rev. 2:17)

EUGENICS NO MORE

However Creation took place in the beginning, since that day, this formed “living soul” has undergone countless genetic modifications in order to perfect this clay man through eugenics — my take on the evolution of the human species.  

The way I see it, the human species has been an experimental project from time immemorial, since the time recorded in Genesis 6, when “the sons of God saw the daughters of men that they were fair, and they took unto them wives as many as they chose.”  These were called “Men of Renown,” but they were brought down in the Deluge. “The Nephilim were on the earth in those days—and also afterward—when the sons of God went to the daughters of humans and had children by them.”  Today they are the ones St. Paul called “principalities . . . powers . . . rulers of the darkness of this world and spiritual wickedness in high places” (Ephesians 6:12)  Their experiments are an endeavor to replicate what God the Creator of heaven and earth had done on the sixth day of creation, as depicted by the serpent’s beguiling words in the second chapter of Genesis: “Ye shall not surely die . . . ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.”

We are nothing more than lab monkeys in the eyes of these principalities and powers, who continue to enslave humans to do their bidding in making their lives comfortable and their world a luxurious heaven on earth. In their blindness, however, these entitled oligarch elites who seek to own God’s Creation are only capable of creating war and hell on the planet, shooting themselves in the foot — literally so, by destroying the very earth and people that provide their sustenance and financial wealth. Blinded by greed for control, power and currency, these would-be Gods have not seen their defeat and demise coming.

God is victor yet, as the Forces of Light are even now defeating the “rulers of the darkness of this world and spiritual wickedness in high places.”  It was said . . . by Lord Acton actually, a British historian of the late nineteenth and early twentieth centuries: “Power tends to corrupt; absolute power corrupts absolutely.” And so it does and has.

WE’VE COME A LONG WAY

Nevertheless, as the saying goes, “We’ve come a long way, baby.” We’ve evolved in consciousness — by the grace of God and the workings of the Holy Spirit — to the level of wakefulness and awareness of our true identity as spiritual beings, angels incarnate in earthen forms, which are not immortal but return to the earth from which they arose—thank God.  Christians are reminded every year on Ash Wednesday to “Remember, man, thou art dust, and unto dust thou shalt return”— not sons and daughters of God and therefore immortal Beings, but dust.  What a slap in the face of the Creator, not to mention a blatant redaction of the account of Man’s creation by God in the first chapter of the Book of Genesis. Rather: “Remember Man thou art God incarnate, and unto God thou shalt return.”

The sons and daughters of God are emerging from behind their wall of humanity to reveal their divinity in an apocalypse of light.  Never have I seen so much love and compassion flowing on earth through people everywhere. Flesh is being transformed and transmuted by the divine technology of love.  Its days of modification by eugenics are no more: “Thus far and no further!” sayeth the Lord I AM.

Today the very Earth is shouting for joy by spiking its resonant frequency. The Schumann Resonance, the heartbeat of Gaia, spiked this week up to 70 Hertz, ten times its usual constant frequency. Something colossal is afoot. Never before has it been so vital to look up and go up.  “Come out of her my people.”

I’ll leave you with these succinct and timeless words of Martin Cecil:

In the state of maturity everything is considered from the standpoint of its value in the fulfillment of the purposes of God, that and that alone. There are no personal overtones at all, none. Man, made in the image and likeness of God, reveals God, not human nature genes. That revelation of God on earth, Jehovah, God in action on earth, is only possible when there are those who have let themselves move to the point of spiritual maturity. Then everything, all the most personal, intimate things, are never seen from a self-centered viewpoint. They are seen simply as a possible means by which the purposes of God may be fulfilled.  ♥

Until my next post

Be love. Be loved.

“Man does not engage the Natural Laws of Life without consequence.”

I’m going to weigh in on the Roe vs Wade controversy, mainly because “Choice” was never about abortion but about women’s freedom to choose in matters pertaining to their health care and their physical body, which includes access to Family Planning services, and abortion if deemed necessary. This right is being taken away from them in our Nation of the “Free and the Brave” causing quite an uproar, and rightly so.

Looking at the current crises created by five Conservative Supreme Court Judges (whose votes to reverse Roe vs Wade are yet to be certified as final), through the freedom of choice lens, there is a pending threat to women’s right to privacy in matters of their procreative functions and futures.  Pregnancy is a personal and private matter which the government has no business policing—and that’s what this Supreme Court and state lawmakers are bent on doing. 

SEEING THROUGH VARIOUS LENSES 

There are several and varying lenses through which one can choose to see this issue besides the partisan political lens, each one soliciting a different emotional and judgmental response.  I will consider a few of these lenses . . . and suggest another myself. No matter through what lens one views abortion, by and large the procedure is done to save a life. In this view, abortion is a pro-life choice in likely the majority of cases.

1. There’s the lens of constitutionality. Freedom of choice is guaranteed to the citizens of America by the Constitution Bill of Rights. Through this lens one sees the Supreme Court’s reversal of Roe vs Wade an infringement upon a woman’s right to privacy and autonomy in making decisions about the reproductive functions of her own body.

2. The lens of Planned Parenthood. Through this lens a woman sees the services offered by mislabeled “abortion clinics” as offering safe and healthy services, that include the guidance of a physician and help in planning the size of her family based on various personal factors, including a mutual decision-making process between a couple.

3. The lens of abortion as a criminal act of violence against a “unborn child” and therefore a murderous act punishable by law.  The state of Louisiana is trying to pass a bill that makes abortion punishable by death.  I will develop this further.

4. The lens of religious morality through which abortion is seen as a sinful act punishable by a righteous God who calls for “an eye for an eye and a tooth for a tooth”—basically the death penalty, if not here than hereafter.

5. The lens of child pregnancy due to rape or incest which puts both mother and child at risk. Abortion of the fetus is the only way forward that makes any sense whatsoever on all counts.  I include here adult pregnancy due to rape, in which case abortion of the fetus is desirable and necessary for obvious reasons.

6. The lens of viability of the fetus and its development to the stage where it is considered capable of living outside the womb.  Through this lens one may rightly question whether or not a “person” is present with the embryo or not. This is the lens I would like to consider.

7. Finally—though not less relevant—there’s the lens of the personal responsibility of men without whom pregnancy cannot occur . . . and who, by and large, leave the woman to manage her pregnancy and to raise their offspring. The ultimate cause of conception, as we know, is the impregnation of the ovum by the male sperm, whether through consensual or forced sex, or by invitro fertilization.  Once the ovum is impregnated by the sperm, the Natural Laws of Life are engaged, and there will be consequences for which both partners are responsible to steward together.  A friend posted this on Facebook recently:

Mark Hollis: Pregnancy is a matter of personal responsibility. We all know what causes pregnancy. This decision by the US Supreme Court is all about denying the personal responsibility of men for their own actions. I will say this to men who want to deny personal responsibility: For at least 18 years, any woman can sue a man for 1/4 of his salary to raise any child he may have decided he has no responsibility for.  We all know how pregnancies occur.

WHEN ABORTION MAY BE CONSIDERED MURDER   

 It is a medical fact that an embryo becomes a fetus eight weeks after conception and is fully formed with all its limbs and organs, though not fully developed, by the end of the first trimester of pregnancy.  This is when I believe a fetus becomes a human being.  I rest my belief simply on the basis that a being does not incarnate in a human body until its “house of being” is complete, fully functional, and ready for occupancy—in much the same way that you would not move into your house being built or repaired until the work is complete and your house ready for you to move into it. 

I’ve heard a few women comment that they felt an energetic wave like a presence enter their field and abdomen at about the end of their first trimester of pregnancy.  The point I wish to consider here is that, up until the point of completion of embryonic development, there is no “person” present in the fetus.  What is present is a mass of protoplasm being organized by Life into a human body.  From a technical standpoint, an abortion of a human fetus before the end of the first trimester is not the killing of a baby and therefore should not be considered a criminal act.  It isn’t murder.  It is certainly the destruction of a living organism—which deserves to be carried out in a ceremonial atmosphere of dignity and thankfulness, as well as due respect for and honoring of the sacredness of life—but it is not the killing of a person.  Someone may take me to task on this perspective, but I cannot see it any other way.

ABORTION IN AN OVERPOPULATED WORLD

When I look at abortion through the lens of an overpopulated world, I run into a conflicted human consciousness.  While we want to have children, we are facing global famine due to overpopulation and ecological collapse.  So, abortion, which really no one “wants,” can be viewed as contributing to the solution of this problem, as can birth control in any and all forms, which the Catholic Church frowns upon.  Beyond the issue of “freedom of choice,” we are facing much more pressing and dire choices.  Here we have two problematic events running parallel to one another with one event unintentionally slowing down the progress of the other.  There’s a dilemma we don’t seem to know how to face, much less solve.  We want and enjoy sex—and we do need to keep propagating our species—while bringing children into this chaotic and toxic dying world seems selfish and unkind, to say the least.  On the other hand, while the unfortunate and “necessary evil” of abortion does somewhat stem the tide of the population explosion, the majority of both sexes in the US want free access to it. 

This recent “pandemic” may be seen through the same lens, along with the rise in terminal illnesses like cancer and heart disease, as contributing to population reduction. While we don’t want the pandemic hanging around, we were glad to have clean air without smog in our big cities during lockdown. If there’s anything Life seeks to maintain at all cost, it’s balance and homeostasis.  This planet can support just so many consumers, especially the voracious consumers we’ve become as a species.  

According to the World Health Organization, there are an estimated 40-50 million abortions every year. This corresponds, sadly, to approximately 125,000 abortions per day.  It saddens my heart to see these numbers. Yet, in spite of the apparent ongoing escalation in abortions, global human population growth amounts to around 83 million annually, or 1.1% per year.  We are a runaway, greedy species that wants what we want at any cost . . . and at the expense of the rest of the species and occupants of this tiny planet.  It’s appalling to say the least. 

WHEN ABORTION IS PRO-LIFE

I will close with this passionate plea posted on Facebook this past week by Paula Backus under the caption **Trigger Warning**: (A “trigger law” is a law banning abortion that lies dormant in many states and is automatically activated if and when the Supreme Court overturns Roe vs Wade.)

I’m not pro-murdering babies.

I’m pro-Becky who found out at her 20-week anatomy scan that the infant she had been so excited to bring into this world had developed without life-sustaining organs.

I’m pro-Susan who was sexually assaulted on her way home from work, only to come to the horrific realization that her assailant planted his seed in her when she got a positive pregnancy test result a month later.

I’m pro-Leah who found herself in a toxic, emotionally abusive relationship that would in no way support the health, happiness, and vitality of life of the unborn child.

I’m pro-Theresa who hemorrhaged due to a placental abruption, causing her parents, spouse, and children to have to make the impossible decision on whether to save her or her unborn child.

I’m pro-little Cathy who had her innocence ripped away from her by someone she should have been able to trust and her 11-year-old body isn’t mature enough to bear the consequence of that betrayal.

I’m pro-Melissa who’s working two jobs just to make ends meet and has to choose between bringing another child into poverty or feeding the children she already has because her spouse walked out on her.

I’m pro-Brittany who realizes that she is in no way financially, emotionally, or physically able to raise a child.

I’m pro-Emily who went through IVF, ending up with SIX viable implanted eggs requiring selective reduction to ensure the safety of her and a SAFE number of fetuses.

I’m pro-Jessica who is FINALLY getting the strength to get away from her physically abusive spouse only to find out that she is carrying the monster’s child.

I’m pro-Vanessa who went into her confirmation appointment after YEARS of trying to conceive only to hear silence where there should be a heartbeat.

I’m pro-Lindsay who lost her virginity in her sophomore year with a broken condom and now has to choose whether to be a teenage mom or just a teenager.

I’m pro-Courtney who just found out she’s already 13 weeks along, but the egg never made it out of her fallopian tube so either she terminates the pregnancy or risks dying from internal bleeding.

You can argue and say that I’m pro-choice all you want, but the truth is:  I’m pro-life. Their lives. Women’s lives.

You don’t get to pick and choose which scenarios should be accepted. It’s not about which stories you don’t agree with. It’s about fighting for the women in the stories and the CHOICE that is theirs to make.

Women’s rights are meant to protect ALL women, regardless of their situation!

Overturning Roe does not stop abortions, it stops SAFE abortions!

FROM THE ANGEL’S POINT OF VIEW

I offer yet another lens to look through. The abortion of a human fetus, whether induced or natural, as in miscarriage and stillbirth, has repercussions beyond this physical plane of being.  After all, the creation of a human body is the creation of a living temple intended for the incarnation of an angel, a divine being. In this sense, pregnancy is a sacred event that calls for respect and reverence as well as joy. The creation of a child in the womb of a woman is a miracle and an awesome privilege for all women. 

This being the weekend of Mother’s Day, it is only fitting that I close with at least an honorable mention, and certainly a word of gratitude for and celebration of Motherhood.  I can only imagine the vibrational dynamic at play in the Realms of Light when a baby is being created in the womb of a woman.  I would imagine that an angel is given an assignment and opportunity to incarnate on Earth and bring the light of love to this baby’s parents and to this world.  Babies are all about love.  No doubt there’s great anticipation and joy in the angel’s heart as he or she considers the privilege of going down into the physical plane of being and walking upon the earth and breathing the life-giving air.  Then suddenly, with or without warning, the pregnancy is terminated or the baby dies in childbirth, and the opportunity for incarnating is taken away.  Without being overly sentimental, I ponder at this level of consciousness when I listen to all this uproar over abortion and the problems over procreation human beings have created for themselves.  Abortion isn’t a solution to any problem.  It is a problem . . . and we are not handling it very selflessly or responsibly.  It’s not up to the Supreme Court nor the government to decide this issue.  It’s up to us, the people and responsible citizens of planet Earth.  

My offering is that we take a broader view and give consideration to the spiritual aspects and implications of pregnancy and abortion as much if not more than the physical and personal implications, certainly more than the legal implications. This crisis is offering us an opportunity to rise above our human selves and transform our consciousness to see from a higher level with the viewpoint of the angels we are incarnate on a beautiful planet.  That’s all.    

As always, I welcome any thoughts my readers have and may wish to share.  Until my next post,

Be love.  Be loved.

Graphic Portrayal of Angelic Presence in the      Mercy Seat  

THE PINEAL GLAND provides our portal of entry as angels of light into our body temples.  Together with the Pituitary Gland, its partner in creation, situated in the bony saddle of the Sella Tursica—what I have seen as related to the “Mercy Seat” in the Ark of the Covenant in my book SACRED ANATOMY—the Father within, who is Love, ignites the spark of Life in the vibrational womb of the Mother and Life is born anew in each and every moment in our living temple. We live in Heaven and have our Being on Earth.  It is a profound privilege to be here on Earth in service to the One. 

COMING FORTH OF THE ANGEL

I shared a song in my last post that I had composed and given voice to several decades ago entitled “THE FULLNESS THEREOF”— the opening lyrics of which are taken from Psalm 24 in the Old Testament of the Bible: “The Earth is the Lord’s and the fullness thereof; the world and they that dwell therein.” I had just recently emerged from a transformative cocoon-like experience in my life’s journey emerging into a conscious awareness of my own angelic presence in heaven and a coming forth into the earth of my physical body, and in the context of the larger world into which I had incarnated some forty-eight years earlier.  I finally got around to recording the song some years later and shortly thereafter transferred it to a CD.  Last year I had several CD’s made to share with friends and family. 

The song itself can be used and sung by anyone to express the profound burst of sacred energy that pours out of heaven during the birth and full emergence of one’s authentic Self, which for me was an earth-shattering experience—or shall I say cocoon-shattering.  The butterfly comes forth and cannot return to the chrysalis womb that gave it wings and birth. It may light on a flowering event here and there, but it won’t stop flying in the air of the Spirit of Life that fills its wings and propels it forward.  The angel comes forth well before the physical body reaches the end of its earthly journey and succumbs to the laws of disintegration in what is called “death.” There is no death for the soul imbued with the Spirit of the Living God. 

And it is the Spirit of the Living God that incarnates in and through us human beings—made in the image and likeness of the Creator and, therefore, creator beings each one. This is the the reason and purpose for coming forth out of the cocoons of our isolated lives and conditions: that our Creator might be present in His and Her creation to see it, hear it, smell it, taste it and enjoy it. In return we share His life, His love, and His glory.

HOW SHALL WE GIVE GOD GLORY!

Music and song are ways to give glory to our Creator.  Worshipful song lyrics written by a scholarly friend, Hugh Malafry, then scored and sung by another friend, operatic baritone PenDell Pittman, come to mind:  

How shall we give Thee glory, who art the Living God?  Power? Who art the very flame of Love?  Kingdom? When the Universe of stars is but a cloak to Thee? Thou art all things.  All things come from Thee, return again unto Thee, and abide always in Thee. We are Thy Kingdom, Power, Thy Glory shinng.  We are Thy bones, Thy blood, Thy flesh singing praises into thee. To know Thee as thou art almighty God and living Word made flesh.

As a lagniappe, I am delighted to be able to include an audio recording of PenDell’s song.  I know you will love it and find deep solace for your soul hearing his rich and powerfully controlled vocal outpouring of his spirit through sacred verse and song: (Best enjoyed with earbuds)

GIVING GOD CONSCIOUS PRESENCE ON EARTH 

How, indeed, shall we give God glory?  What better way than by giving Him presence and full emergence in and through us on earth.  Our coming forth as angels is more than a personal and individual event.  It is a collective event that signifies the coming into form and expression of the Spirit of the Living God, for whom we each provide individual and unique focus and expression.  We do it not for our own personal fulfillment but for the fulfillment of the One whose Body we comprise:  our eyes for Him to see His beautiful world; our ears that He may hear and enjoy the songs of the birds and crickets and the rush of the wind; our voice that He may speak the Word that gives life to flesh and living forms; our minds that He may share His Light and wisdom with all; our hands that He may touch His creation and extend His blessings; our feet that He may walk upon the sacred Earth; our hearts that He may give His love to us and through us to all of creation.

COME FORTH ANGELS! 

I’m writing here on behalf of all incarnate angelic beings in whose consciousness has dawned the awareness of their presence in Heaven on Earth and who have a burning desire in their hearts to come forth and shine their light more fully in these historic days of rebirth and ascension.  The time is ripe as our neighboring planets are in alignment and entering the Zodiacal House of Ares, a fire sign, in May.  (And today, April 30th, is the first solar eclipse of 2022, a partial eclipse in Taurus, starting at 2:30 pm.) The world is in crisis.  It’s safe, in other words, as the masses are distracted and preoccupied with pressing existential matters . . . such as climate change, economic crises, pandemics, and somehow restoring normalcy to life on this planet . . . and many souls looking for the Light in the midst of gross darkness.

These are days of advent leading to an apocalypse of angelic light that is even now transforming and transmuting our flesh bodies to a higher vibrational state of transparency, even as Gaia crosses the threshold to a new and higher frequency and state of being herself.  I say come on forth angels and reveal your divine light fully.  Let’s finish the work we came here to do for our Lord and King, whose Earth this is and the fullness thereof, the world and they that dwell therein. We are the living Son of Man coming in the clouds of the New Heaven to usher in and set the dominion of heavenly ordinances in the New Earth.  This is our Day of Apocalypse.  Let us shine our heavenly light and together create a Home for God on Earth.  So let it be, to the glory of God and the blessing of all Creation.     —Anthony

Where your heart is, there also is your treasure. 

A LINE FROM A POPULAR POEM BY RUMI about a field “Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing” has been repeating in my head since I published my previous post: “When the soul lies down in that grass, the world is too full to talk about.”  And it truly is. There’s just so much going on in our world today for one to crowd into one’s thimble-size mind.  Another saying that Rumi penned from his home in Konya, Turkey, speaks of the heart’s treasure: “I looked in temples, churches and mosques. But I found the Divine in my heart.” 

In the movie “The Sound of Music,” Maria (Julie Anderson) sings “I go to the hills when my heart is lonely.”  Today, amidst the devastation in Ukraine and the repercussions the sanctions levied against Russia are having on the economy here and globally, I go to my heart to find peace and sanity.  Peace, because love abides here; sanity, because in my heart I know and understand that all is well in the Hands of God. 

By divine design, we human beings are the hands of God here on Earth.  Whatever happens, let me be a beacon of light in the darkness of human consciousness . . . and human consciousness is truly filled with darkness.  But darkness is simply the absence of light.  It’s not something of itself.  It’s nothing.  Light is something! Let there be light! 

A large mass of humanity has withdrawn from the light of love and hunkered down in the shadows of fear and uncertainty.  But let the Spirit of Love move upon the face of the waters of human consciousness and, Voila! There is light! And the light shines in the darkness, but the darkness does not comprehend it. “How can you be so calm and peaceful amid such atrocities and violence?! Where is your outrage!? Your condemnation of Putin and his murderous foot-soldiers who have exterminated tens-of-thousands of their fellow countrymen, women and children included?!” Such reactions are only incapacitating spiritually and contribute nothing but fuel to the fires raging in human hearts and minds, clouding and darkening vision.  If there’s one thing needed at this time it’s clear vision.

Whatever happens, let me be a beacon of light in the darkness

I find it somewhat challenging to refrain from outrage and remain non-judgmental in all of this death and destruction being heaped upon Ukraine and her citizens.  But that doesn’t mean I have blinders over my eyes.  I see clearly what is happening—at least what the news is telling and showing us—but only with my eyes. 

“A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten-thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee, for only with thine eyes shalt thou see and behold the reward of the wicked.” (Psalm 91:7). 

I looked up the word wicked and it has several connotations and applications: vicious, depraved, (wicked habits); mischievous or playfully malicious (a wicked joke); obnoxious or offensive (a wicked stench); formidable or excellent (a wicked tennis player).  The Psalmist most likely would characterize the wicked as “vicious” and “depraved.” Who, then, are these “wicked” ones who are reaping their rewards? I think we all have had some part in wickedness; surely any and all who have lived for the material treasures of the world rather than the spiritual treasures of Heaven. 

CONVEYOR OF SPIRIT

Perhaps it’s a bit of a stretch, although a good segue to the theme of this post, the word “wicked” has the word “wick” as its root—which is a woven chord for conveying liquid, like the wick of a candle which is designed to convey the melting candle wax up to fuel the flame for light.  Consciousness is a conveyor of Spirit, given to us by the Creator as a means of connecting with Heaven and for conveying the Light of Truth and Love into the world.  By design, we are much like the whirling dervishes of Turkey who spin ’round and ’round, with one hand pointed upward toward heaven and the other hand turned downward toward the earth, as they provide a channel for bringing Love down from God into the world.  

There’s a wise saw that says you can’t fix a problem at the same level as the problem, but from a level above the level of the problem.  And so it is with the problems that plague human consciousness.  The solutions are to come from above and not from below.  The design for the New Earth descends from Heaven above into the heaven of human consciousness . . . but only as there is room to receive it.  Filled with wickedness, there’s no room for the Truth of Life, which is Love.  We need to cast the devil—literally the divider—out of our heaven, as Jesus did: “Get thee hence!”  Then there will be room for the Truth of the New Earth to emerge from the New Heaven and replace the old earth. 

A large part of the old heaven is occupied by the Christian belief that Jesus came down to earth from Heaven to die for our sins and redeem “us sinners” from the hands of the Devil.  That is a redaction and a lie conjured up by Saint Paul and the Council of Nicaea, the most grievous of lies ever perpetrated upon human beings. 

The truth is that Christ, the Son of God, incarnated in Jesus and came to show us how to love God and one another.  That’s the truth, and I think it’s time that Christians, and particularly Catholics, do away with their crucifixes and repent for having worshiped the murderous crucifixion of the Son of God all these centuries.  I am certain that He doesn’t want nor like that his crucifixion is still being celebrated as the purpose for his visitation to this planet.  We can celebrate His life and victory over death by His resurrection without dragging him through that ignominious ordeal in our memories and our Holy Week liturgies.  Please, take him down from the cross and worship the Father in spirit and in truth, which is all He asked.  His true passion was and is the return of Love of God and love for one another to humanity and to His Father’s world. 

If a cross is needed, one can replace the crucifix with the balanced cross of St. Benedict, which is a plus ⊕, symbolizing a cross-over point between Heaven and Earth, which is what Jesus was and what we are designed to be.  (This cross is believed to protect one from the Devil and was used in exorcisms to cast out demons.)

I’ll leave you with the beautiful and rich Russian choral music of Grechaninov’s Passion Week, Op. 58:1, Behold the Bridegroom, performed by the Phoenix Bach Choir, Kansas City Chorale, conducted by Charles Bruffy.  Enjoy this first track of the album.

THE FLIGHT OF THE BUMBLE BEE

 Sitting in our back yard swing today, I watched a busy bumble bee hovering with watchful antennae over a blossoming azalea and chasing away other bees that are drawn to the same inviting pink flowers. It even hovers over my head when I sit to close to the bush near our patio. Even though I know that the female doesn’t sting unless messed with, it’s not a very comfortable feeling. The males have no stingers, as I’ve learned researching bumble bees’ sex and anatomical features . . . and I learned something else that fits squarely into the theme of this post.

Today I learned that the bumble bee worker can fly at a speed of 34 mph as she goes about gathering food pollen for the queen and the other bees in the hive. It can carry up to 90% of it’s body weight in pollen. That takes a lot of energy—and the bee is 40 minutes away from starvation at any time, so it feeds on the nectar of flowers on its journey back to the hive. Now here’s the fascinating and edifying part.  After it drinks all the nectar from a flower, the thoughtful bee leaves a chemical footprint on the flower petal as a signal to other bees not to waste their time and energy stopping for nectar . . . which disappears when the flower replenishes its sweet nectar! I am in awe of Mother Nature, who obviously has an all-encompassing Consciousness. 

Now, I can understand the bumble bee’s “pledge” and commitment to her queen and fellow bees in the hive, and to its task of gathering pollen for energy and nourishment for itself and them.  What I pondered while watching this busy bee hovering over the pink flowers of the azalea was why it is that she chases away other bees the moment they come by for nectar, which this particular bee doesn’t even take the time herself to enjoy.  It just hovers there over the bush guarding its treasure. 

Now, bumble bees aren’t the only creatures that covet their fodder.  We have a family of beautiful cardinals in our neighborhood that stop by our bird feeder regularly for a meal or a snack of birdseed.  We also have a flock of cute little sparrows that feed frequently and heartedly as well . . . but not while the cardinal is feeding!  No indeed!. They are not welcomed but are directly chased away by the cardinal, which is usually the male.  The female waits patiently until her mate has finished his meal. 

We love all our feathered friends, even with their humanlike quirks . . . which I also pondered sitting there.  I contemplate this instinctive characteristic as well while watching Nature specials on TV.  Why, I muse, do animals behave much like their fellow human inhabitants of the planet—the crowning creation?  I believe it has everything to do with the all-encompassing scope of Consciousness and its conditioning which influences the behavior of life-forms everywhere on the planet . . . and I don’t think I’m overlaying anything on the animals and creatures of the wild.  After all, we occupy the very top of the pyramid of living forms on the planet.  There is surely a “trickle down” flow of energy and spirit in this pyramid that is coded by attitudes and patterns of behavior upstream, where we live and carry out our often selfish life styles.  As I said, I don’t believe this is overlay.  Our connection with the wild kingdoms affords us a means by which peace and harmony can be offered to the animals and creatures of the Wild as well—and we see this happening in isolated instances where man and beasts feel safe with one another—as Dr. Jane Goodall demonstrated so beautifully in her groundbreaking work with chimpanzees in the apian world of the jungles of Africa.  

CONDITIONING BY WAR

I received a letter from one of my blog followers and friend in the UK, Peter Watson, that opened up something in my consciousness relating to wars and the conditioning wars have had on the human psyche and collective consciousness and subconsciousness—a timely missive in this day when Russian President Vladimir Putin is conducting an atrocious “genocide” war of aggression against Ukraine, killing innocent civilians and destroying their homes and entire cities and villages. 

War seems to be the default solution to disagreements between nations and tribes, and all over . . . what ?!  Territorial occupation?  Natural resources?  Political and religious ideologies?  I’ve read reports that there are some thirty biolabs in Ukraine, many of them in the southeastern section.  These labs are located in China, as well as in other NATO nations where Gain-Of-Function virus research is being conducted, some of it funded by the US.  Are these labs what Putin is invading Ukraine over?  Does he actually feel that Russia, surrounded by NATO nations, is threatened by bioweapon destruction?  What has happened to negotiation and compromise over such matters of concern? Is war and the threat of destruction by nuclear force the only negotiating tools that work?!  I think not. 

Ukraine is not the only country where warring is going on.  According to Wikipedia, there are around 40 ongoing wars and conflicts presently in around three dozen countries, most of them in the Middle East, North West Asia and Sub-Saharan Arica, plus a major drug-war in Mexico. 

AS ABOVE SO BELOW

Human consciousness appears to be thoroughly conditioned by war . . . since the day in Biblical history when Cain slew Abel out of envy for the way his brother’s offerings were acceptable to the LORD and his were not.  But this warring pattern may have its heavenly origin that goes back well before Cain slew Abel.   

Human consciousness has been deeply scarred and conditioned by warring in Heaven.  According to sacred scriptures, these distorted patterns of usurping power and control have their origins in the Heaven of heavens.  John of Revelation wrote of this battle between the Forces of Light and the powers of darkness, as did Paul:

John: “And there was war in heaven: Michael and his angels fought against the dragon; and the dragon fought and his angels, And prevailed not; neither was there place found any more in heaven. And the great dragon was cast out, that old serpent called the Devil and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. (Rev12:7)

Paul: “For we wrestle not against flesh and blood, but against principalities, against powers, against the rulers of the darkness of this world, against a spiritual wickedness in high places.” (Ephesians 6:12) 

We needn’t wonder how and why there are wars on earth—although the warring elements were cast out of Heaven long ago. They’ve continued to make war on earth.  But what of the wars constantly being waged in human consciousness: bickering, feuding, competing with one another, envying, hating, resenting, back-biting, judging and and condemning one another, constant complaining—not to mention the violence and warring depicted in computer gamming—and so many other conflicting and violent thought entertained in the heaven of human consciousness?  Humans are hard-wired, it seems, for warring.  

CONDITIONING BY DECEPTION

Here is my friend’s letter in which he writes about the conditioning of consciousness by war, religion, and education:

Dear Tony

 After WW2 in the UK we had a saying, “If you want to get ahead, get a hat.” Crowns were for Royalty, and self-esteem was at an all-time low. The Hun was our avowed enemy; loving our neighbour, the Hun, was out of the question. Every street was lined with bomb-sites. Yanks were saying they’d won the war for us. What really happened was that they’d delayed their involvement till both sides were exhausted, on their knees, then they came over to mop up. They brought chewing gum, nylon stockings for our girls, and rode around in jeeps wearing their smartly pressed uniforms, smoking cigars. Our boys were dressed in cheap itchy garb, with silly-looking helmets, so there wasn’t much love lost there either.

Education was mandatory for children, and we were taught more about how many battles the British had won, over the past centuries, than any other subject. Looking back you can see the incredible level of propaganda we were fed, and, worse than that, the overall impression we were falsely led to believe, was that without education we were worthless. On top of that, RI (religious instruction), taught us foremost that we were sinners, because some groundsman, called Adam in the far past, had eaten a forbidden apple, which was reserved for the Lord.

 Of course we were also taught to recite The Lord’s Prayer – the same as our mathematics times-table – so, by and large, that was our preparation for navigating the world-of-mankind, in a hostile universe, from which we’d evolved from apes.

Religion, as a Catholic means of excusing the joy-of-sex, without condemning our only means of propagation, invented the myth of a virgin-birth, which is still quite a widespread worldly belief. It’s been refined over time to explain the mystery of consciousness, and the role of being incarnating in human form, but without reference to our purpose (other than the same as Adam’s), or our present origin, which is also supposed to be from the dust-of-the-ground.

To skirt the truth of genuine being, as in the issue of God from heaven on earth, we came through a stage, several millennia, of begetting, wherein rogue sons-of-God came in unto daughters-of-men who bore them children of great renown. These would have been forebears of science, and the Egyptian gods, who still retained some ability to create crude life-forms for purposes of extending domination, through warfare, in the absence of dominion. Dinosaurs were a short-lived war-brigade, which suffocated when Earth’s water-mantle collapsed, high-atmosphere was lost, and Luna’s lesser light was extinguished.

 Creation myth by then was firmly established . . . .[and] virgin birth to explain the purity of Jesus; a level-of-perfection unattainable by sinners, who, cast out of heaven, are convinced they must die, and, unless they claim they believe that Jesus died to save us from our sins, will burn for eternity in hell. You couldn’t make this up!

 Religion plays down the ascension-process, which is natural to awakening from deception, and maturing in grace-and-stature, focusing as it does on the atrocity of the crucifixion, while falsely claiming God needs vengeance for Adam’s sin, and is not almighty enough to forgive without a high-priced sacrifice. This is swallowed – hook, line, sinker, rod and all – by supposedly intelligent people.

 By now the meanest wit should see that the whole world has been deceived, but no longer do we need to remain in the state-of-deception. Perhaps, in easing human beings out of deception, as did Jesus – “I have much to tell you, but ye cannot yet bear it” – Uranda used the idea of a hat, [referencing my previous post] to introduce Class acolytes to our latent, but dormant, creative abilities. Maybe it’s now time to remind us we merit a crown – as members of God’s Crowning Creation – undeceived by mankind’s ungodly education — all glory being to God, in the heaven of our God-given consciousness on earth.

TERMINALS FOR INPUT AND OUTPUT

I’ll leave you with something to ponder as you hold your cellphone in your hand.  This came from my poet friend Don Hynes, who is also committed to the transformation and elevation of human consciousness.

“One of the very simple but largely undiscovered teachings I’ve received in my solitude is the sense of each human being a “terminal” receiving input, performing output. All the “terminals” are connected to the central port of intelligence on Earth (and beyond) that we have termed “the wyrrd.” We need be careful about that which is received, although much of it arrives simply because we are all connected, but we do have substantial control about what goes “out.” It takes discipline on both reception and transmission but of these the more critical is transmission. That we can control and we must.

The input is being broadcast world wide without device, yet the cell phone has become an external terminal, which we use without much thought. The darker purpose of this external device is to provide “input” to the human “terminals” world wide, stoking fear, anger, hatred. Humans by and large “copy and paste” what they are being force fed on the input side to their output. Hence the many deranged voices one can witness on social media . . . .  I think there’s something here of a basic education that needs to be developed in the population at large . . . and I am voicing this through my poetry, avoiding the didactic or pedantic as much as possible.”

I voice the same message in my blog.  I will leave this to your own pondering without further comment.  As always, I welcome any thoughts you may have and wish to share. Until my next post,

Be love. Be loved.

Rainbow Heart

Creation unfolds out of consciousness—another word for heaven—in very specific stages and rhythmic phases of development following an immutable design governed by Spirit which holds safe and secure the true design and control for living forms.  It is the Spirit of Love, Father God, that begets Life in the Womb of Mother God, the Spirit of Truth.  With our hearts we play a gestational and nurturing role in the process of creating living forms, a process that has been in operation since the beginning of creation when the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters of consciousness, and God said “Let there be light.”

Looking back into the far distant and ancient past, when Egyptian Gods walked the Earth and worked their magic of creating forms, we find the same pattern manifesting through the Creative Process:

Radiation ↔ Response ← Attraction ↔ Union → Unified Radiation.   

OUT OF THE ABUNDANCE OF THE HEART

It is said that the mouth speaks out of the abundance of the Heart.  The radiation of love is through the heart. Response to the radiation of love comes from the unformed quantum field of infinite possibilities and probabilities where energy waves collapse into particles the moment the light of love shines upon them and the creative Word is spoken.  Living forms are thus created and imbued with the light of love for the purpose of shining light into the creative field; the light that is life for all of creation.  Consciousness provides the matrix in which thought-forms shape intention and vision in an imaginal realm.  Voice and tongue provide the utterance and projection of the Word into the creative field.  Union follows attraction as coherence of structure allows the release of a unified Ray of Love’s Light. Thus has it been and will be for all eternity; surely as far back as history records.  

CREATION BY THE WORD

We are constantly creating our worlds with the utterances of our tongues. I found this interesting piece of Ancient Egyptian history relating to the creator god Ptah while researching the role of sound in creation:  

Ptah is the creator god of the Memphite theology. [Memphis was the capital of Ancient Egypt]. He was said to be the creator of all things, including other creator gods. Self-generated, Ptah, the god of the primeval mound (Tatenen), created by thinking of things in his heart and then naming them by means of his tongue. This is referred to as Logos creation, a label that references the Biblical “in the beginning was the Word (Logos)” [John 1:1]. The Egyptian gods Shu and Tefnut came into being from the mouth of Ptah. Ptah was sometimes equated with the Hermopolitan chaos pair Nun and Naunet. Besides being a creator god, Ptah is a chthonic god of the dead, who seems to have been worshiped since the early dynastic period.

Whether used self-actively in “darkened understand,” as the Gita says, or Spirit-actively by Man restored to the image and likeness of his Creator as God in action on earth, the principles governing the Creative Process are the same and apply without discrimination.  The heart is at the center of creation. “As a man thinketh in his heart so is he.” 

WHO WERE THESE GODS?

My critical inquiry goes in the direction of understanding who these Egyptian Gods were that walked the Earth in post-Edenic times.  For surely they were “as God” knowing good and evil and having the knowledge and power to create.  We learn of the “Elohim” from Hebraic scriptures.

In Genesis 1, the Hebrew word for God is “Elohim”, which is the general term for god or gods and is also, rather interestingly, a plural word.  In Genesis 1 Elohim is referred to as “him” (male singular) but speaks in plural (“Let us make man in our image”). However, in Genesis 2, the four-lettered name of God, YHWH, (Yahwey) first appears, and God is mostly referred to by this unique name from there on in.

Was Ptah perhaps one of the Creator Beings of Elohim?  Uranda (Lloyd A. Meeker) in his teachings speaks of a time when creator beings looked out into the unformed void of the Cosmos for a fitting place to create, as he put it, “a Home among the stars.” As I can best recall, they formed the collective group of God Beings known as Elohim.  In their collective One Heart they conceived an image of this Home and then spoke it into existence, sending forth a unified Triune Ray of Light into the unformed cosmic nebulae. The result was a dynamic response to their radiation, followed by an attraction that brought together atom with atom, particle with particle, and molecule with molecule into a cohesive solar entity around lines of force that provided design and control patterns bringing order out of chaos.  And here they established their Home among the stars, our Home among the stars.  To hear Uranda relate the story in detail, one has a sensing that he was there and possibly one among the Elohim.  

“INSTANTANEOUS MANIFESTATION”

What piqued my interest in this legend about Ptah is the way in which he is said to have created things by speaking them into existence . . . having thought about them in his heart before “naming them by means of his tongue”— creation by the Word.  Along this line, I would like to share a presentation by Uranda of “Instantaneous Manifestation” dating back to January 1,1933 toward the beginning of his “Ministry of Truth”   

INSTANTANEOUS MANFESTATION  

The first step toward the attainment of instantaneous manifestation is LOVE. LOVE is the shaping force in all creation. This, then, is the secret of why it is so necessary to “love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, with all thy soul, and with all thy mind,” and to “love thy neighbor as thyself.” That which you send out always comes back to you. If you send out from yourself thoughts of limitation and lack, limitation and lack appear in manifestation to carnal mind. Everyone is manifesting every day. All that appears in your life is manifested according to Law. Do not look at the art of manifestation as if it were something entirely new to be learned. All you need to learn is HOW TO CONTROL COMPLETELY EVERY MANIFESTATION WHICH YOU BRING FORTH. What you seek to know is the perfect application of the Law. You know that the Law works, otherwise you would have nothing but a complete void—you would not even have physical life.

These then are the SEVEN LAWS which govern manifestation:

  1. LOVE THE LORD THY GOD with all thy heart, with all thy soul, and with all thy mind.
  1. LOVE the thing which you wish to bring forth into manifestation, for this is intense desire and makes possible the application of the Third Law.
  1. CONCENTRATION, which is the elimination from the mind of every thought not directly related to the manifestation.
  1. VISUALIZATION, which is the building of a perfect mold through which the manifestation may come. Each detail must be perfectly visualized or it will not be perfectly manifested.
  1. Become ONE WITH YOUR CREATION so that you lose all consciousness of separate identity. BECOME IT.
  1. SPEAK THE WORD. Having become one with that which you desire to bring forth, you now BRING FORTH YOURSELF.
  1. GIVE THANKS TO GOD THAT IT IS SO. Here you regain consciousness of your identity as being apart from your manifestation. 

Complying with the First Law you become one with God, for if you love God with all of your every sense and part of your being there is no room for anything else. Doing this, you are lifted above consciousness on the material plane of existence to the point where you are vibrating in perfect harmony with the ONE SOURCE of all things. If you desire bread you do not go to a hardware store. You go to the source of the food supply in your locality; that is, a grocery store. Therefore if you desire to bring forth into manifestation a hat, you cannot do so and remain on the plane where the hat will finally manifest. You must change your vibrations and make them harmonize with the one substance from which all things come, before you can influence that substance and make it take form. This is attained by love. You must love the first great cause with all that you are.

Love expressed through the mind that is not supported by the physical expression, that is, the heart, is one-sided and has no power to bring forth quickly. You see, then, that the perfect love which the soul has for God must be allowed to radiate fully and completely through both mind and body before the mind and body can become aware of oneness with God. “Faith without works is dead.” Faith is of the mind, while works are of the body. A mind which is in perfect attunement with the soul has perfect faith, and the body which is in perfect attunement with the soul is a perfect channel for perfect works. Your soul is now in harmony, or a state of oneness, with God; therefore all that is required of you is to so blend and harmonize your mind and body with your soul that you lose all distinction between them and so become aware of God’s oneness with you. This being done, you are vibrating in perfect harmony with the one substance from which all things are created.

Imperfect attunement with this one substance, which is God, brings forth an imperfect manifestation. This shows you why it is that all selfishness and disharmony with your fellow human beings must be eliminated. If you love God with all that you are, you love all of God, and since God is in every man, woman and child, you will love every man, woman and child when you love God. When you become one with God you will love the God substance in every person and thing. You may wish to change the form in which the God substance is manifesting, but you will love the God substance in every manifestation, whether the manifestation be perfect or imperfect, and this love will express in all of your radiation. Contemplation on these words will give you a complete understanding of the first law of manifestation.

When you have attained to this perfect understanding you may give attention to the Second Law, which is: Love the thing which you wish to bring forth into manifestation. Being one with the God substance you may direct your love to the object which you are manifesting. Your vibrations are instantly harmonized with that which you truly love. Thus it is that through love of God you become one with God, and being one with God substance you find that the idea of a thing, or the name of a thing, is the thing itself. The next step, then, is to love the hat which you are bringing forth, and this love is an intense desire to express yourself as a hat. This automatically brings into action the Law of Concentration, so that everything not related directly to the process of manifesting yourself as a hat is excluded from the realm of your attention.

With the perfect control of the attention a fact, the next Law is easily applied. With nothing to distract the attention, perfect visualization is natural, and every detail is perfectly harmonized in the picture. 

Here is a test. Perfect love of a thing brings perfect acquaintance with it. Therefore if you have complied with the Second Law, you will know every detail which is to be incorporated into the manifestation. If you are not divinely aware of every detail in your creation you are not a worthy creator.

When you have complied with every Law thus far it will be easy to obey the dictates of the Fifth Law. Here you become aware of yourself as being’ one with the vibration on which your manifestation is to come forth. This is an understanding of the Law of Being which applies to your particular creation. Remember that the only difference between things is one of vibration. When you harmonize yourself with the vibrations of a hat, you become a hat. When you harmonize yourself with the vibrations of God, you become God, or one with God. Therefore the Fifth Law of Manifestation is to become one with creation so that in consciousness you are it.

The Sixth Law is the point of coming forth. This is done by the use of the spoken word. The spoken word, the creative word, is an acknowledgment that you are it. “Be still, and know that I am God.” Being one with it, you acknowledge that oneness and say, “I am a hat. Let there be a hat in manifestation now.” This law will be easily understood and applied when you have progressed to it. Until you have so progressed, further words concerning it will have little value to you.

The Seventh Law is most important, for through the application of it you make your creation permanent. That which you have created remains in manifestation to you only so long as you solidify it through praise and thanksgiving. Therefore you see the great reason for the many psalms of praise and thanksgiving.

Earnest application of the Seventh Sacred Law will cause that which you now have to grow and multiply. It brings you back to the First Law and makes you see how it is, and why it is, that God works in circles. It is only through the circle that a thing may be complete and yet be endless.

This is my instruction to you. Study it well, that you may learn to live it, for “Faith without works is dead.”

JUST DO IT !

Uranda’s successor, British Lord Martin Exeter, with the agreement of a circle of men and women in a state of accord, gathered around the very location where their vision was to materialize, manifested a dome chapel on Sunrise Ranch in Eden Valley near Loveland, Colorado . . . and later on a pavilion, along with skilled builders . . . and later yet two Lear jets, along with two experienced pilots.  He was a pilot himself, and a lean man of action who drew hundreds of men and women to his ministry.  Among his final words before departing in 1988 was a command to the effect: “Now you do it.  Manifest God in action on Earth through Man restored.” His words have been in my heart ever since.  I came to know oneness with his spirit, my spirit, just hearing him speak and sharing in the radiation of the Word. </strong>

We are here to do the “greater works” relating to the creation of the New Earth, the design and nature of which is being handed down to us via the New Heaven by the Creator of heaven and earth.  How shall we go about these greater works? We’ve talked about them for decades.  But, enough with words.  Words without works are empty.  We speak these days about the “veil” of the heart thinning and clarifying.  As a close friend exclaimed recently, it’s time to go ahead through the veil to the other side and be about the business of manifesting the New Earth and a new way of living.

There is something more that can be done and needs being done. With One Heart, One Mind and One Way, what is it that we are called together to do?  Can we now envision the New Earth in our One Heart and speak that vision into being with our Word as God in action on Earth?  The Way appears and opens before us as we come together in a place of accord. I welcome any thoughts you might have along this line.  Until my next post,

Be love.  Be loved.

“Don’t be afraid to face the facts, and never lose your ability to ask the questions: Why? and How?”   Immanuel Velikovsky 

CONSCIOUSNESS IS NO MYSTERY.  Like a seedbed wherein ideas are planted, nurtured by unwavering belief, and given birth in their seasons, consciousness is the matrix for creation.  It is very fertile soil, so fertile that one has to be very careful about the nature of the seeds one plants. 

This fertile soil can be cultivated and seeded from below as well as from above and within.  Our physical bodies and the natural world are the fruits of seeds planted by Life from above.  The world that man has constructed and imposed upon the surface of this planet, with its skyscrapers, concrete roadways and parking lots, industrial and commercial complexes, along with its burgeoning landfills, are all the product of seeds planted by human beings from below . . . none of it compatible with the fine living, breathing fabric of our beautiful Home among the stars. 

Not all is a burden to the Earth, as many of our ideas and dreams, visions and asperations are creative and harmonious with the natural climate of Gaia.  There is a saying among the spiritually awake when an idea presents itself for manifestation, “Put it in the heaven.”  A more common expression is “Put it on the back burner.” If it is resonant with Life, it may be useful to the creation of a living world.  What we now have is a dying world created by dying human beings. 

Weeds find their way into this sacred soil as well, deposited there by birds-of-sorts in their fertilizing poop. There’s a biblical passage that cautions “Beware the snare of the fowler,” the web-like net of the human mind that snares fleeting ideas. The soil of consciousness can become cluttered with weed-yielding seeds, so we have a responsibility to “Tend and keep the Garden.”

The content of human consciousness is generally a clutter of “false ambition’s restless schemes” . . . busy thoughts and self-serving ideas and concepts—many of them like concrete: thoroughly mixed up and permanently set . . . and ardently defended when challenged.  Just consider the “narrative” put forth by the official guardians of the nation’s health with regard to the current global health crisis.  Try and put forward an alternative narrative on social media, even amongst friends and family, and you’ll find yourself quickly censored and cancelled.  Mark Twain had something to say about this: “It’s easier to fool people than to convince them they’ve been fooled.”

THE “OFFICIAL NARRATIVE”

Human consciousness, in its state of uncertainty and insecurity, greatly values official and popular narratives, and will ardently defends them against any and all challenges to the contrary.  It’s an addiction affording a sense of comfort, though false, in knowing what’s going on in the world, especially in a life-threatening crisis.  Most are fear mongering motivators. 

There are a number of crises constantly going on in our world of many problems.  One such crisis is in the Christian world of religious beliefs and doctrines.  I ran into this one several months ago during a fairly pleasant conversation with a nephew who is heavily invested in the Pentecostal narrative that “All men are sinners”—until I suggested he consider the passage in Genesis that says he is made in the image and likeness of God and is therefore Divine.  He vehemently objected to even the suggestion of a different narrative about the nature of man. “Oh No! I am a sinner! The Bibles says all men are sinners.”  I recall a biblical passage that declares “All men are liars.” (Psalm 116:11).  It was Paul who declared all men to be sinners, but Paul didn’t know the Master, nor did he ever hear Him speak of His Gospel of the Kingdom of Love.

Then, there’s this “pandemic” which has polarized the population of the world in two different camps believing in two opposing narratives.  Friends and families have been torn apart by this controversy.  The attitude is taken, on both sides, “Don’t mess with my belief if you don’t want to start a heated argument.  I need to believe in this for my own sanity and security.”  Apparently, this is not a good time nor topic for inquiry and critical thinking.

People have been censored and imprisoned, even scrubbed out, for putting forth a narrative that radically differs from the “official” narrative . . . and not only in modern times.  We have the historical precedent of the crucifixion of Jesus.  He was denied not once but three times by a disciple, abandoned by all but two or three, and crucified by those to whom he had come to offer salvation and a Way into the Kingdom of Heaven without having to die—all for proclaiming his divinity and the divinity of all men, male and female, made in God’s image and likeness.  He brought forward a narrative that was radically different from the long-standing Hebrew doctrines, and it was rejected by staunch believers in an ancient narrative that a Messiah would come and set things to right here on earth.  “My kingdom is not of this world” he told Pilate . . . yet another narrative that no one in his day could quite comprehend much less adopt.  The narrative of a temporal kingdom with a Messiah as king was deeply invested in by the religious authorities of the day, as well as the Zealots among the people, who cried out for his crucifixion. 

OUR YOUTH IN THE “CLIMATE CRISIS”

Then there’s the “climate crisis” everyone’s polarized in . . . well, almost everyone, most actively our youth since it’s their future that’s at stake.  Here’s a report by Somini Sengupta, Global Correspondent on climate issues for the New York Times from a recent survey of 10,000 young people on the issue of climate change. 

HOW THE YOUNG GENERATIONS VIEW THE WORLD

Four Takeaways on the youth climate movement: They’ve grown up in a pandemic.  They’ve come of age in an era of strongman leaders.  The climate crisis looms over their very lives. Generation Z, the cohort born after 1996, has inherited a set of compounding uncertainties. It explains, in some measure, the vibe of the youth climate movement. Powered by rage and distrust, it is decentralized and it is increasingly focused on the inequitable effects of global warming.

The global youth movement known as Friday for the Future has called on its members to organize protests around the world this Friday, March 25 (yesterday).  Its rallying cry is “climate reparations and justice.”

Here’s what I find most revealing about this generation of climate activists: They distrust government.

In a survey of 10,000 people between ages 16 and 25 in 10 countries, three-fourths said they think “the future is frightening.”  The survey was funded by an advocacy group, Avaaz, led by researchers at the University of Bath in England and published in The Lancet in December.  It asked respondents to answer “yes” or “no” or “prefer not to say” to a series of questions.

More than 64 percent said their governments were not “doing enough to prevent a climate catastrophe”; more than 61 percent said they did not have trust in their government; and more than 58 percent said their governments were “betraying” them.  In the U.S., they are mostly female and white.

This state of protest in the consciousness of our youth, seeded and nurtured by fear of extinction of our species, and anger toward the government for not doing more to avert an existential crisis, ignores the fact that the government has little real control over the climate of the planet.  The climate of the earth and all the planets is largely controlled and determined by what’s happening with the Sun at the center of our solar system.  Earth is part of a unit and moves with what is moving within it—which for the past several years has been a gradual heating-up, bringing about climate changes on all the planets, severe storms and turbulences just like those here on Earth. 

Our planet is not in jeopardy of extinction.  We are.  Not by climate change alone but by our own hand.  We’re poisoning our water, our air and our earth with our waste and industrial pollution. The fourth Creative Force, fire, cannot be polluted, and is at work cleansing and purifying the earth and its inhabitants. 

THE OFFIIAL CHRISTIAN NARRATIVE

Returning to the ill-conceived cancellation of Jesus by the radical fundamentalists of his day—a cancellation that was echoed and repeated at the ecumenical Council of Nicaea in A.D. 325, a council of Christian bishops convened by Roman Emperor Constantine, in which Jesus’s message of the Kingdom of love was literally redacted and the official narrative of Christianity for the entire world established and published in the Nicaean Creed, a narrative recited at Sunday Services in the Christian world year ’round. The narrative Jesus brought and offered to the world hasn’t been successfully cancelled but continues to be offered by the Lord of lords and King of kings.  His Kingdom is the Kingdom of Heaven from which his Father, who is Love, seeds the sacred soil of Consciousness from which Mother God brings forth the fruits of the Tree of Life in the Garden of the Natural World and so-called “wild kingdoms,” even with a few faithful stewards on hand to tend and keep it. 

The youth of today protest to the government for its lack of doing more about the “climate crisis.”  The truth is, WE are the government.  As youth choirs sing out these days, “We are the world.  We are the people.” It’s our job to set things to right here on Earth.  We are the designated keepers of Eden. 

IT’S A WONDERFUL WORLD SEEDED BY LIFE

When was the last time you looked around and marveled at the beauty of Mother Nature’s wonderful world?  The wondrous works of the Creator, seeded from above by Father Sun, as the Native American Indians saw the world and honored the Earth and the Great Spirit whose world it is?  As I stated earlier, we must take great care for what seeds we sow in the garden of human consciousness.  Seeds of fear for what the climate prophets predict lies ahead for mankind and the planet invite that which we most fear to come upon us. The narratives we uphold and hold sacred in consciousness have the potential of doing more than simply defining what is thought to be going down in our world.  They have the seminal potential of determining what will transpire down the road, if not sooner.  

“IT’S WHAT IT IS”

When I think deeper about it, why do we need a narrative at all?  About anything? Why, indeed?  A narrative is not needed to define what’s going on in the world. It’s plain to see. As the current popular quip puts it, “It’s what it is.”  The world is what it is . . . and how we’ve made it.  There’s a saying in the Bible “Unless the Lord build the house, they labor in vain that build it.” The New World—the biblical “New Jerusalem”—comes down from God out of Heaven . . . “adorned as a bride for her husband” . . . all ready to be received and established on Earth.  That’s why we’re here.  The only reason why we were put here: to know the ordinances of Heaven and to set their dominion in the Earth.  Let us lift up our hearts unto Heaven and welcome the New Earth . . . even as we totter on an existential precipice “between the devil and the deep blue sea,” as the ancient saying goes.  

I leave you with these timeless words in the form of a poem composed by a remarkable spiritual teacher, Lord Martin Exeter.  May they quicken the angelic spirit of love for the truth of life in you, my cherished reader and follower.

                            THUS IT IS

From age to age

      Love’s word rings forth,

          “The truth is true and all is well,

                 Unconquerable life prevails.”

Oh, man, whose strident dreams

       Lead gravewards,

               Return to calm and noble

                       Character of life.

Blaze forth pure virtue;

        Depart false ambition’s restless schemes.

Busy thought and troubled feeling

        Trespass not in virtue’s wise serenity

              Where firm control and awful power

                      Eternally abide.

Here earth’s pains are healed

       And cruel chaos of mind’s spawning

              Is called again to order and to beauty.

 Thus it is. Until my next post,

Be love.  Be loved.
