“The Christ Love that shines through thee is like unto the brightness of the sun, and all things in thy body-self which are not rooted in thy nature and watered with thy Truth shall quickly be disintegrated by the brightness of thy Presence, for thou art the I AM of thy body-self.” —Uranda
Continuing in the series “The Spiritual Significance of the Thyroid Gland,” this excerpt from SACRED ANATOMY speaks to the role this sacred energy center plays in our vocal expression. This is the control and regulating center for the Spirit of Life. Here heart and mind meet to provide animation for the realization and manifestation of ideas conceived in the mind by the Spirit of Truth working through the Pituitary gland and in partnership with the Spirit of Love radiantly focused in the Pineal. Illumination is the radiant gift of the Spirit of Life.
The Creative Word Organizes
John of Revelation writes about this One’s voice as though it were the voice of a collective rather than that of an individual: “And his voice as the sound of many waters”—conveying the creative word into the field of creation. Words that uplift are like water flowing forth from a fountain and down a river bringing fresh water to the earth and all living things. That river is the River of Life, and the creative word gives life to our bodies and to our worlds, just as the destructive word destroys life in our bodies creating nothing but voids in them and in our worlds.
The voice box, situated by design between these two lobes of the thyroid, sets the tone that carries the Word articulated and released into our creative field. The words that come out of our mouths create to the extent they are spoken with feeling and are thus charged with spirit, whatever spirit is moving in the heart. If they are spoken without feeling and without spirit, they are then of little consequence as far as creation is concerned. Whatever the nature of the spirit with which they are charged, so will be the nature of the creation. Just as love and truth bring forth life in the body, so does love for the truth bring forth words that increase life in our worlds. By the same token, words charged with ill spirits bring forth illness and discord.
Words of life flow out from a person who loves the truth and has a passion for the real and the genuine in living. Such words flow like many waters clarifying issues and dissolving patterns of resistance in us when we hear them. Such words create life whereunto they are sent.
There are many such people on Earth today and when I hear them speak, or read their writings, it’s like cool, clear water being poured out over hot and confusing issues in the forefront of human consciousness today, clarifying understanding in such a refreshing way. My heart pours out currents of love and appreciation toward them, as well as verbal and written response when appropriate that lets them know they are heard, cherished and protected in my heart. They are about the business of creating a new world. Their words find their mark in the hearts of people where response gives rise to deep resonance. In turn, deep resonance sets up changes in the molecular patterns of physical substance. New configurations based on tones that are harmonious and resonant with life appear in flesh. Thus are our bodies and our worlds transformed and created new by the Spirit of Life conveyed by the spoken word.
This speaking of the creative word and response to it generates the connecting substance that joins us all together in true community, as it provides the returning cycle that is essential to the effectiveness of the radiation of love into the world through the spoken and written word. It also establishes, to the extent that we follow our heart’s response, the patterns of spiritual governance through harmonic focalization. Based solely on the principle of resonance, we are irresistibly drawn to those who focus specific qualities of Spirit with which we naturally resonate. We draw others to ourselves in the exact same manner. This is the essence of the saying, “Not by might or by power, but by my spirit, saith the Lord of hosts.” In this government no man lords it over another but only the Spirit of God is Lord over all in heaven and on earth. Spirit, not form, provides the focalization. Government by Spirit is organic and works through organisms. Government by form is synthetic and works through organizations.
The Spirit of Life charges our words that they may carry the Tone which creates all things new. From here the current of the Word goes forth from out of the mouth of God on Earth, which we each and altogether are, to accomplish that whereunto it is sent. John wrote: “. . . and out of his mouth went a sharp two-edged sword.” In lesson forty-four of “Steps to Mastership,” Uranda, with all the assurance of his own mastery, writes:
Out of thy mouth now goes the sharp “two edged sword” of Truth, even as it goes forth from the mouth of our great Master, dividing asunder the “bone” of unresponsiveness, that it may be separated from the “marrow” of Life. Thus it is that the Truth which thou art now sending forth into thy body-self is causing thy body-self to be free from all the limitations of the flesh, even as thou art now free to express fully the glorious liberties of the Children of God. As soon as thy body-self is convinced that it is only through thy Truth that it can be FREE, it will respond to thee and enter into thy Life through the transforming power of the Christ Love that is in thee.
The Christ Love that shines through thee is like unto the brightness of the sun, and all things in thy body-self which are not rooted in thy nature and watered with thy Truth shall quickly be disintegrated by the brightness of thy Presence, for thou art the I AM of thy body-self.
The first impression of this image might be one of the sword representing cutting words of rebuke, which words of truth do indeed provide. That rebuke is given only by the angel to his or her own human capacities. It is not to be used to set others straight or to rebuke them.
Another meaning, perhaps more subtle, is contained in the design of the two-edged sword, which cuts both ways if the one who is applying words of truth and rebuke is not himself being true to his own words, “walking his talk” as it is put. If one takes a two-edged sword, for example, by the blade in order to cut something into pieces, he is likely to cut his own hand as well. But if he takes the sword by the handle and gently but consistently applies pressure while he moves the blade back and forth, he can easily and safely cut through the bonds that hold one captive, literally or figuratively, without cutting either himself or the one or thing being freed. With words backed by the authority of experience, one can easily cut through entangling issues to the kernel of truth behind them and find healing and freeing resolutions based in love.
One who is living the words he speaks is careful not to impose, for one thing, and is gentle but sure in the way he speaks and words things. He seeks to clarify issues rather than confuse them with words lacking the knowledge of experience. His words shine light on the path rather than into the eyes of those who would walk the path with him. Words of truth offer freedom from confusing and binding concepts and beliefs. It is not our beliefs about the truth but our experience of truth that makes us free— initially from our beliefs about it. Words are creative vessels and therefore sacred. Words can also be used to divide and destroy and are thereby defiled and thwarted from their original meaning and purpose, often rendered useless unless they can be cleaned up and reclaimed for sacred purpose.
I will complete this series on the spiritual significance of the thyroid in my next post in two weeks after we return from a visit with family in Ashland, Oregon. Until then,
