“I have thrown fire on the world. Look. I watch it until it blazes.” —Jesus, The Gospel of Thomas
The “fire” that Jesus threw on the world was not wild fires like we’re experiencing along the West Coast. It’s the all-consuming flame of love, the atomic power at the heart of creation. In this series I will explore how the design of true community unfolds naturally and organically, fueled by atomic power released under the control of the stabilizing design and dynamics of the atom. Without further intro, I’ll dive right into it.
Our Judaeo-Christian model shaping social and family configurations, dictating human morality and ethics, and designing community structure and governance, needs to be revisited in the light and context of the Natural Laws governing all of Creation, from atom to galaxy and beyond. In our close in relationships, for instance, monogamy is not a natural arrangement. Neither is marriage, for that matter. They have been necessary, however, as temporary control measures in humanity’s fallen state of consciousness—as are all man-made laws.
Bible “thumpers” and scholars will surely take issue with me on this and argue that marriage was established and sanctified by the Creator from the beginning when He created Adam and Eve and declared that a woman shall cling to her husband and the two shall be as one. However, we must remember that the Creation Story in Genesis was written by the patriarch Moses and not by an eyewitness to Creation in the Garden of Eden. . .and it was most likely redacted in order to support the seventh and tenth Commandments. His was the job, after all, of governing these unruly tribes of Israel reveling in their newfound freedom after their release from bondage in Egypt. Moses’s Ten Commandments gave him the leverage and divine authority he needed to reign in and cultivate the Nation of Israel into a civilized “Chosen People.” That’s my speculative opinion anyway, for whatever it’s worth.
In a restored state of consciousness, a new model and paradigm of governance by Love and the Truth of Life come into play. As the Master Jesus told those who challenged him on the issue of divorcing and remarrying,
For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven.
He was speaking to a somewhat elevated level of human consciousness, compared to that of the Israelites of old, attempting to elevate it even further by extending an invitation to humanity to rise up, “come up hither,” and enter the Kingdom of Heaven, a spiritual level of consciousness, just above the mental and physical levels—an invitation few at that time accepted. Nevertheless, through His own victorious life, He established the Way by which resurrection and ascension would be possible for the entire Body of Humanity after his resurrection from the tomb and his eventual ascension from this earthly plane back into Heaven.
As human consciousness rises to higher and higher levels, and human beings are increasingly governed by Spirit from within, rather than by man-made laws—laws that the Master himself admonished us not to make beyond the two Great Commandments He had given—marriage ceases to be necessary.
This is already a dawning reality in many sectors of society, even within the Judaeo-Christian world. Couples are coming together as “partners” in life. Angels may not marry but I believe we do come in inseparable pairs, or as “soul mates,” most often with only one incarnating leaving the other to provide guardianship and heavenly connection and support.
Conscious awareness of our angelic nature has already dawned in the experience of a growing number of awakened souls who are conscious of their presence in heaven on earth—the kingdom of Heaven that is at hand and all around us. Obviously, we are not even close to a collective transformation and transmutation of the mass consciousness of humanity. However, we are on our way, and a new Golden Age awaits us. This I know.
The Nuclear World of Controlled Power
The atom is a micro model of right relationships in true community. In it is manifest the working dynamic of the One Law, simply stated by Lloyd A. Meeker (Uranda) (1907-1954) as “Positive Action, Negative Reaction or Response.” Walter Russell called it “The Law of One.” As I consider these two nomenclatures, I see how compliance with the One Law would bring about Oneness in the human family as “one Nation under God.”
Consider what we now know about the structure and dynamic operation of this fundamental building block of Creation. At the center of the atom dwell one or more positively charged Protons and one or more neutral particles called Neutrons. Orbiting around this central hub of focused power are a number of Electrons carrying a negative charge. Looming behind this nuclear structure lies a potential of awesome power held in check by the integrity and stability of the tiny atom. We know this by reason of our experience destroying that integrity and releasing that awesome power to destructive ends.
As I pondered this model at three o’clock yesterday morning, awakened by a pressing urgency to explore it further and perhaps do a blog series on it, I am finding much food for meditation as I write. It’s a huge and complex consideration. It may not be relevant to all that’s going on in our world today with the West Coast ablaze and smothered in smoke, and the Southern Gulf States ravaged by hurricanes, including our home town in Southwest Louisiana, not to mention the human tragedies occurring globally in war-torn nations, and the divisive political climate here in the US, my thoughts today soar in the New Heaven and engage in the imaging of tomorrow and the New Earth already being born in and through the hearts, minds and innovative activities of thousands around the globe. So, I ask you my readers to bear with me as I dream of a new world for tomorrow in the midst of a crumbling and burning old world of today. There’s a legendary phoenix in the ashes.
I will continue in this exploration in my next post and leave you with this provocative saying of the Master Jesus:
“Let those who seek, continue seeking until they find. And when they find, they will become troubled. And when they become troubled, they will be astonished, and will reign over all. [And after they have reigned they will rest.]” –Jesus, The Lost Gospel of Thomas
Until my next post of this new series,
Be love. Be loved.
