Creating the New Earth Together

Spirit of the New Earth Vibration, page 2: The Alchemy of Transmutation

 

For fifty-plus year as a holistic doctor, it has been my role and privilege to serve at the physical level of life’s domain and to bring the higher vibrations of Spirit into the lower levels of Life’s expression in and through the human body.  In keeping with the nature of that service, I have sought to elevate my consciousness, and that of those whom I have served, so as to gain insight beyond the surface of anatomical structure and physiological function and into the energetic world of the Spirit that creates the physical body and continues to maintain it through its years and decades of useful existence and service. To that purpose, I have written down my meditations and compiled them into a book which I entitled “SACRED ANATOMY,” because to me the temple of the living God is sacred in all of its designs and functions.

It is with some reserve that I proceed in sharing this consideration in a public forum such as this, as it is highly esoteric and sacred, intended for the initiated. The consideration of our sacred anatomy, presented here in the form of a meditation on transcendent essences, is not a scholarly study of human anatomy and physiology–although those aspects are given due consideration for accuracy. It is rather a presentation of firsthand esoteric knowledge, as previously noted, and inspired visionary insight and revelation.    

In that light, I will continue sharing excerpts focusing on the reproductive system and the hormonal glands of the gonads that produce the seeds that initiate the creative process that brings forth the human body—under the guidance and protection of the Spirit of the New Earth.  In this excerpt I share my meditation on the role these sacred vessels and their function play in the transmutation of atoms to the rare substance that provides clothing for the spiritual body of the incarnate angel. 

I believe It is our role as divine beings on the physical material plane to fuel the fire of ascension by which physical substance is transmuted and made rare for ascension.  That fire is the transmuting fire of the Spirit of Love at the highest vibration differentiated and stepped down as the Spirit of the New Earth at the lower end of the energy spectrum, as we considered in the previous post—which I encourage you to read, if you haven’t already, for the context it provides for this post.

The Spiritualization of Atoms  

   There is a remarkable and significant similarity between the shape and function of the Pineal Gland, with its mushroom-shaped head, and that of the male and female genitalia on the opposite end of the endocrine system.  They both serve as pointed vessels for focused release of a unified radiant current.  The sensation of intense pleasure during erection of both the glans penis and the clitoris, intensifying as orgasm begins to occur, is powerfully felt in the space behind the eyes where the Pituitary gland, with its anterior and posterior lobes–the Divine Masculine and Divine Feminine embracing in the sixth plane of being–rests in the Sella Tursica of the sphenoid bone at the base of the brain. With the facilitation of the Hypothalamus, and the Limbic System just above it in the brain, the pleasure center of the brain, the Pituitary receives the release of the golden light of love emanating from Spirit through the Pineal Body, embracing it on its way to the eyes and forehead and creating the sacred alchemy which allows the fire of love to pour forth from within.  The fire extends down and out through the sexual organs as well as outward through the eyes and permeating the entire body.  All the cells in the body temple are permeated by the radiant outpouring of love and therein rejuvenated in the ecstasy of sexual orgasm.

   With the outpouring of love’s emanations comes a refinement of pneumaplasm as it is drawn into the core of the ascending flame where it is refined even further.  This rarefied substance then rises to mingle with the substance of love contained within the heart.  The heart provides a safe place for the alchemy of transmutation to take place.  From this crucible, the substance continues on its journey upward reaching into the core and bringing the experience of heaven into the body temple.  Upon touching the core of love in our heart of hearts, pneumaplasm acts as a connecting substance between earth and heaven through which the currents of love pour forth into the body-temple and through the body-temple into one’s world.  Thus are the atoms in the earthly plane of being spiritualized and lifted up into the realm of spirit.  

   The experience of this release through the eyes is especially unifying as the two look into each other’s eyes to receive one another as angels while their union makes itself evident and powerfully felt.  Such moments of sacred sexual intimacy reveal the state of ecstatic union with the Beloved, from Whom a rich outpouring of love is known throughout the temple in waves of delightful pleasure. In his instructions on the “seven seals” Uranda describes what occurs at this level:

Here thou seest the activity of the Gonad Glands (ovary or testis) in harmony with the Christ Center in the Sacral region of thy spine.  Here it is that the active Spiritualization process begins, and as the body substance responds to the action of this Seal it is prepared for the ASCENSION. 

This Seal has been variously called the Cave of Darkness, the Serpent’s Seat, the Coil of Kundalini, the Manger of Birth (Bible), and by other names.  As this transmuted substance begins its ascension through the Seven Seals, it is spoken of, all through the Bible, as the River of Life; and the Tree of Life which extends from one side of the River of Life to the other side represents the Positive and Negative phases of the Seven Seals, under or through which the River of Life is flowing.  The Branches of the Trunk of the Tree extend from the Glands on the one side and from the Christ Centers in the Spine on the other side.  (STM, Lesson Fifty-four)¹

Kundalini Shakti 

   The spiritualization of atoms in the ascending fire of transmutation was known to the ancient Hindu world as “Kundalini Shakti.”  Thomas Ashley-Farrand, an expert in the use of Hindu and Buddhist mantras, as well as in ancient Eastern religious ceremonies, sheds some historical light on this power center: 

According to Hindu tradition, the nature of power is feminine.  Although the consciousness that triggers spiritual activity is said to be masculine, it is powerless without the feminine energy that drives it.  The shakti of kundalini, the feminine power cell lying in repose at the base of the spine, is dormant and latent in most of humanity.  When it becomes active even in the smallest degree, we develop the power to heal, the power to see things not yet come, and other special gifts of the Great Feminine.

It is taught that the locus of feminine power in our own bodies is the great kundalini power cell, which lies at the base of the spine.  Over the course of many lifetimes, this personal transformer powers our spiritual progress as its inherent shakti “awakens” and moves up the spine.  As the kundalini shakti touches the pituitary and pineal glands, it activates them in new ways, making more energy available to them. Dormant brain power potential becomes active in a way that cannot be described in words.

Shakti represents the active energy of the divine that powers all forms of creation.  In Hindu tradition, Shakti is anthropomorphized as the consort of Shiva [a masculine deity who directs the rising kundalini energy]. (From Mantra, Sacred Words of Power study guide.)² 

   These sacred vessels can be appreciated for the facilitation they provide in the process of ascension of atoms into the spiritual body of the angel incarnate.  The simple ceremony of caressing them gently so as not to arouse the glands into contraction and orgasm, or simply being still during intercourse, helps to initiate the movement of the current within the ascending flame, drawing atoms from out of the body substance into the upward spiraling flow.  In a rising current, atomic substance ascends before the throne of God in heaven, represented by the Pineal Body, to be transmuted by sacred alchemy into angelic light substance.  Thus is union with the Divine attained through this sacred practice and ritual.

   This is an alchemical fire that burns through and within the flesh but does not consume it. The Crown Chakra plays a role here as well. A single ascending current of golden substance begins to flow and can be felt moving up through the Pineal Gland of both lovers.  In the midst of this sacred alchemy one suddenly knows the other as oneself. Flesh becomes vibrationally fused so that the partners feel what each other is experiencing and lose all sense of separateness, spiritually as well as physically.

   This is, without exception, a most holy and powerful experience of union with the Beloved. Out of this union between two angels on earth comes a most exquisite, yet easy, release of love through a unified current of radiation as a portal is opened in heaven through which light pours out in ceaseless currents. These sacred times of worship, either alone or with another conscious angel, can be used to bring loved ones in our worlds, and our worlds themselves, into consciousness for blessing, healing and sanctification.  Consciousness then becomes an extension of the altar, now sanctified by the oil of love, upon which we may offer the tithes of our world of service upward for healing and spiritualization.   For anything that touches the altar is sanctified.  Sexual intimacy is very much an integral part of our angelic function as co-creators with God, and we would continually know that and participate in ascension as we return these sacred vessels to their holy purpose.  We do this by taking them into our priestly hands and celebrating our temple service to glorify God and to bless our world with shining light. ♦  

The world would be transformed in a cosmic moment were these sacred vessels, now desecrated by abuse in darkened understanding, sanctified and returned to their sacred function. In the wake of such transformative change, spiritualized atomic substance would begin to ascend through the levels of being to find its way back Home in the Heaven of heavens before the throne of God, whose creating substance it is.  In this sacred function, we as the Body of Man restored would fulfill and complete our primary purpose for existence: the return of praise and thanksgiving by way of spiritualized flesh to the Creator, whose world this is. This could only be done by divine beings, angels incarnate, who have come forth in a radiant apocalypse of light, and taken charge of the physical material world in the name of our Lord and King.  It will never be done by “mere humans” eking out transient pleasure in self gratification. Such temporary pleasure is as nothing compared to the ecstatic pleasure of priestly function in service to the Lord of the Sacred Seven.  

That said, the angel can come forth into conscious presence employing the alchemy of sacred sex as a path and means of opening the sacred seals to reveal the Presence of the One I AM.  This path has been taken before in ancient days by Pharaohs who sought to achieve apotheosis through sexual intimacy with the High Priestess, through whom he received his power to rule with divine authority.  It is a worthy and available path to those who would go that way in their transformation journey.  We will revisit this topic later in the chapter on Sacred Sex.  I invite and welcome your thoughts and inspirations. Until my next post in this series,

Be love.  Be loved.

KISS THE GROUND movie: a two-and-a-half-minute trailer about a very hopeful film on saving the planet and our species with nothing more than growing grass on our farm lands through what is called “regenerative agriculture.”

Veiled Angelic Presence


Our Home among the stars

We are angels incarnate, come down from Heaven and cloaked in garments of flesh and bone taken up from the humus soil of the Earth to shine the light of love in the spirit of truth to steward the birth and creations of life. 

Recently, a group of us in different parts of the globe gathered in the upper room of consciousness for an hour to extend a stable hand into an unstable world.  We did this every day for three days.  In this upper room we are adorned in garments of light, lovingly present to one another and intimately known as kindred spirits, here to do our Father’s bidding.  Other smaller groupings of angels gather in “The Field” poet Rumi speaks of every week to hold the world in loving, healing hands, administering a radiant current of unconditional love. 

These kinds of angelic gatherings are becoming more and more frequent in our world as more and more awakened souls retreat from involvement in worldly affairs to make themselves available to heavenly affairs, standing with feet firmly planted in the physical world, angels in veiled presence, extending a firm and confident collective hand holding an old world changing form as it surrenders the substance of its dismantling structures upward, giving form to a New World. 

This is an historical event on planet Earth, and we are all privileged to be here at this time to play our individual and collective parts in the ascension process of a planet that is very special and precious to us and to our Lord and King.

Flower Light

In the day and time appointed, we will unveil our angelic presence in an apocalypse of Light, a revelation already in progress. Until that day and time, we remain cloaked in these blessed human garments.  In that day all of the natural world will shine with light in the colors of the rainbow and darkness will be no more. 

I resound with Handel’s proclamation in his immortal oratorio Messiah, based on Psalm 24: 

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 the King of glory? The Lord of hosts, he is the King of glory.” 

Back in the day I wrote and sang several songs, as many were doing.  This song pops into mind as I write this post:

THE HAPPY SONG OF LIFE  (5/20/91)

I see your face in the flow’rs that grace the path you place beneath my feet.

I see your face in the starlit sky that hovers high above my head tonight.

I see your face, yet the beauty lies within these eyes that see.

 

I hear your voice in the rippling sound of water rushing by as I draw near.

I hear your voice in the quiet space the stars embrace, their music fills my ear.

I hear your voice, yet the music sounds within the heart of me.

 

REFRAIN:  The heavens play your music 

While the Earth resounds the tone.

Your presence fills all the spaces

In my heart as in the sky.

So I’ll dance and sing the happy song of Life.

 

I feel your breath in the wind that blows upon my face and rustles through the trees.

I feel your breath in the storms that rage then quietly go — their passion fills me so.

I feel your breath as it ebbs and flows with every breath I take.

 

I know you’re here as I open to my world my very senses tell me so.

I know you’re here in the stillness of my heart and mind, your presence fills me so.

I know you’re here, and your spirit is the very life of me.  (Refrain)

 

FINAL REFRAIN:  The heavens play your music While the Earth resounds the Tone.
Let us join the celebration In our hearts as in the skies,

As we dance and sing the happy song of life.

I welcome any thoughts you may wish to share. Until my next post,

Be love.  Be loved

“Cosmos and Psyche” part 2: Why History Will No Longer Repeat

“Watch and listen, you solitaries! From the future come winds with a stealthy flapping of wings; and good tidings go out to delicate ears.”
Fried
rich Nietzsche,Thus Spake Zarathustra

We have entered unprecedented times and space we’ve never occupied wherein intensifying energies and mounting pressures are bringing online a totally new version of the human species as our Earth undergoes an upgrade to a Fourth Density planet — recent and current events notwithstanding.  It’s onward and upward for the ordained representative of the Creator on Earth: Man, male and female, created equal in the image and likeness of Father God and Mother God.

In this post, I will bring forward the essence and some content from a previous post of January, 2020, to update our current cosmological conditions and context.

OUR SOLAR ENTITY

As I related then, my spiritual mentor once stated that the entire solar system, which he rather called a “Solar Entity,” is the embodiment of Man, total Man, with the planetary orbits serving as “wheels within wheels” turning the Human Psyche, the planets themselves being the manifest form of the collective Mind of Man orbiting a radiant star, the abode and outer garment of man’s Divine Source and that of all life on earth: the Lord of the Sacred Seven Rays and the absolute focalization of this Whole Holy World.

When I first heard this scenario back in the 1970’s, I thought it sounded wonderful, awesome, even plausible, although I didn’t quite understand what he was talking about, nor how it all worked. The idea was only a beautiful concept to me, which I gradually came to comprehend and adopt.  

Then just recently, I read COSMOS AND PSYCHE, an “epoch making” book by distinguished philosopher and cultural historian Richard Tarnas, who demonstrates precisely how the cosmic clock ticks off repetitive human behavior and world events. To borrow a quote by one impressed reader, “This is the closest my head has been to exploding while reading a book.” It was that powerful a read, all 492 pages.

Basically, the author assigns archetypal characteristics to the influence each planet exerts upon the human psyche.  He implies that the archetypes are not so much part of the energetic fields of the planets themselves as they are dormant in the collective human psyche where they are reawakened and brought forward into manifestation through individuals, as well as the collective body, during specific planetary alignments: conjunctions and oppositions, as well as other configurations.  Each planet triggers energetically a specific and unique characteristic and archetypal “personality” in the human psyche — (largely influenced, I should add, by the Zodiac House in which their alignments take place). It is a colossal and magnificent cosmic time piece.

HOW HISTORY HAS KEPT REPEATING

These planetary alignments occur repeatedly and with clockwork precision, a phenomenon that the author researches tenaciously and meticulously covering every significant alignment and event that have occurred on the planet since the birth of Jesus in 4 BC, and several decades prior to that, to the present millennium, and every significant historical figure from King Herod the Great and Jesus to the Bush presidencies up until the publication of his research in 2007.

The author calls these events “coincidences,” but the reader is given the incontrovertible impression of a causal relationship.  For a sampling of the author’s comparison of past planetary alignments to present and possibly future alignments and events, I refer you to my post of January, 2020. 

The overall perspective one is afforded as one moves with the author through the centuries of the previous two millennia and into the current era is the progressive nature of the evolutionary continuum guiding the transformation of human consciousness and life experiences, orchestrated by the symphony of our Solar System performing the “Music of the Spheres,” all accomplished and performed under the hand of Divine Providence, whose presence is clearly evident, as well as acknowledged by the author himself.

Each major event initiates a cycle, or advances the previous ongoing evolutionary cycle in its field, as one historic legend or memorialized actor on the world stage (inventor, artist, philosopher, writer, scientist, astronomer, discoverer) gives birth to something new, such as new ideas or inventions, or further develops and implements the ideas and inventions of those who had gone before — all guided and moved along by the clockwork precision of repeating planetary alignments.  

As I was writing that post, Mercury, Venus, Mars, Jupiter and Saturn had moved into alignment on January 6th, 2020 — which is, incidentally, the date when the Epiphany of the Magi is celebrated in the Christian world — and remained in alignment through February 20th.  As foretold by astrologist Pam Gregory, we did experience an energetic jolt and upgrade from this once-in-a-decade alignment. The last one occurred in 2005.

Richard Tarnas describes the archetypal characteristics of these planets, which I published in that post of January of 2020.  You can revisit that article and read his descriptions.  

PASSAGE THROUGH A GALACTIC CLOUD

The first two decades of the current millennium were years of radical change and evolution for the human species.  In his book, Richard Tarnas documents the repetition of history in meticulous detail and synchronistic chronology.  This was the experience of Humanity during millennia of travel through a galactic vibrational cloud, if you will, during which sojourn our vision was limited to the physical, material plane of mere existence and survival.  We were forewarned by the Creator in the Garden of Eden of this approaching period of clouded vision and instructed not to “eat of the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil,” as it is put in the creation story in Genesis — not to judge, in other words, or even touch the creative cycles in which forms evolve toward “good.” It was, and still is, our judgement of the evolutionary process, and our self-determination in interfering in the process to please our own desires and achieve our own ends and purposes that has resulted in our loss of Eden and consequent creation of evil upon our planet — such as genetically modified organisms and animal cloning, not to mention the redaction of sacred scriptures and the spinning of news stories by the media and politicians, and other distortion of truth.  In our blindness and arrogance we have brought about much misery and destruction upon our heads and upon the Garden of the Natural World. 

Thankfully, under the hand and by the grace of Divine Providence, we have managed to survive decades upon decades of repetitive cycles, initiated by jolts and waves of energy impacting the human psyche via planetary/zodiacal alignments, to arrive at this moment in time to see the dawn of a New Day.  We’ve moved out of the galactic cloud into the radiant light pouring out of the heart of our Milky Way Galaxy.  In this new year of our Lord 2021, a new dynamic has rendered inapplicable the predictability of the historical influences of planetary/Zodiac alignments upon the human psyche.  We are free from the influence of the “architypes” that have occupied our own human psyche from time immemorial.  Our vision is clearing, allowing us to see with the spiritual eyes of our hearts, presently undergoing a radical purification — which means we must tarry awhile until our spiritual Self fully emerges into radiant expression in an apocalypse of Light Divine.  That Day is nigh, even at the door.    

HISTORY NO LONGER REPEATS

According to the very popular astrologist and visionary Pam Gregory, we are no longer under the influence of the stars in the same repetitive way we have been for the past 12,000 years.  As she explains in the 23 minute video below, astrologists study cycles.  They look back on previous cycles and see what happened back then, what manifested, and put those aspects into current reality to see how they might manifest in our current time.

However, there are some massive changes that are happening right now that disable that methodology simply by reason of the fact that we are in a new place in the galaxy.  We have moved into a galactic photon belt we’ve never been in before, at least not in our race memory, where we are being bombarded by massive amounts of gamma light we haven’t known in our race’s lifetime.  The Schumann Resonance itself that measures the heartbeat of the earth is spiking beyond its recognized 8.3 Hertz.  The result of all these changes is that we are in an upgrade cycle, both as a planet and as a body of Humanity. “This is the biggest evolutionary leap for Humanity in about 12,000 years.”  For a clearer and exciting understanding of the energetic dynamics of the cosmic context into which we have now moved, I leave you with this 23 minute video.  Enjoy! 

Much is happening in our Solar Entity and cosmos.  So, pitch your frequency at unconditional love, as Pam directs.  Focus your heart’s love response in the Lord of the Sacred Seven Spirits, the quickest way to raise your frequency.  Let your mind be open to the present and free of the former things.  The New Earth is built upon a new design coming down from God out of the Heaven of heavens NOW, and not upon the archetypal patterns of old buried in the human psyche.  Let us recall that we are all angelic beings, members of the same body, the heavenly body of the Archangel, whose Whole Holy World this is, as we enter a new era of another Golden Age. 

I wrote a song back in the day of awakening that speaks to the dawning of a new age and a new world:

NEW AGE DAWNING

Chorus: There’s a new age dawning, you can feel it in the air. There’s a new world a forming, ’cause there are new people, true people there. 

When you look this old world over, pay no heed to what you see.  Lift your heart, reveal the glory and the joy to live and be.  Bless the people and the places that you touch from day to day, and the new world will appear ’cause you are there. (Chorus)

Let your heart be warm and loving, let your mind be open free. Let your spirits soar like eagles o’er the mountains, shore and sea.  Let the reason for your coming be the life with all you share, and the new world will appear ’cause you are there. (Chorus)

Now the past is gone forever, and the future’s but a dream.  Life is in the moment flowing like a cool, clear mountain stream.  Let the beauty that’s within you fill the moment that’s at hand, and the new world will appear ’cause you are there. (Chorus)

Yes, there’s a new world a forming, ’cause there are new people, true people, you people me people there. 

Have a wonderful and joyful trip around our Star on our beautiful planet in 2021. Until my next post,

Be love. Be loved.

Kenosis: Self-Emptying Love 2, “The Gift of the Magi”

“Jesus said: Whoever has found the world and become rich should renounce the world . . . . The world is not worthy of one who finds himself.” — From The Gospel of Thomas

THE GIFT IS LOVE

Continuing with Cynthia Bourgeault’s insight into Jesus’s chosen kenotic path, I will forgo any introductory comments so as not to clutter the space with thoughts other than those presented in this excerpt from her book THE WISDOM JESUS:

A Pointless Sacrifice?

To flesh out a bit further what this path actually looks like, for­give me if I make a sudden leap into the world of modern litera­ture. Kenosis does not lend itself easily to spiritual theorizing. By far its most powerful and moving enactments have come in the form of story and drama.

One of the most precise descriptions of this path, believe it or not, is the familiar and well-loved story “The Gift of the Magi” by the American author O. Henry. You probably remember the tale. Della and James are newlyweds; they’re madly in love with each other. They are also poor as church mice, and their first Christmas together finds them without sufficient funds to buy each other gifts. But each of these lovers does have one prize possession. James owns a gold watch given to him by his grandfather; Della has stunning auburn hair falling all the way to her waist. Unbeknownst to Della, James pawns his gold watch in order to buy her beautiful silver combs for her hair. Unbe­knownst to James, Della cuts and sells her hair in order to buy him a gold watch chain. On Christmas eve the two of them stare bewilderedly at their completely useless gifts.  It has been a pointless sacrifice—pointless, that is, unless love itself is “the gift of the magi.”

And of course, this is exactly what O. Henry is getting at. In the voluntary relinquishing of their most cherished possessions, they make manifest what love really looks like; they give tangible shape to the bond that holds them together. That’s what kenosis is all about.

Another profoundly kenotic parable of our times is the tale that forms the 1987 movie Babette’s Feast, adapted from a short story by Isak Dinesen.  As the drama unfolds we discover that its heroine, Babette, had until recently been one of the most celebrated chefs in Paris, but during the political riots of 1871 she loses everything—restaurant, livelihood, and family. She flees for her life to rural Denmark and is taken in by two aging sisters who have given their lives to religious work, trying to hold together the spiritual community that their father founded. When Babette arrives, the remaining believers have grown old and weary, lost in petty bickering. Babette tries as best she can to lift their spirits, but nothing seems to be turning the situation around. Out of the blue a letter arrives informing her that she has won three million francs in a lottery back in Paris, and then and there she decides to treat these Danish peasants to a proper French dinner. She imports all the necessary ingredients: not only exotic gourmet delicacies for the seven-course meal itself (each with its appropriate wines, champagnes, and liqueurs) but the china dinnerware, silver cutlery, damask table cloths, and crystal glassware. The film zeroes in on the banquet table as the astonished Danish peasants are suddenly faced with this extrava­gant abundance. At first they are frightened and suspicious, but little by little the mood mellows as they slowly relax into gratitude and forgiveness. The last scene of that banquet night has them all stumbling, a bit drunk but very happy, out into the village square, where they form a circle around the fountain (a vivid image in its own right) and begin to sing and dance togeth­er. After all these years they have finally touched the wellspring, and their hearts are overflowing. Then someone says to Babette, “Well, I guess you’ll be leaving us soon, won’t you, now that you’re a rich woman?” She says, “Rich? I’m not rich. I spent every penny I had on that banquet, three million francs.”

Again we see the same leitmotif as in the O. Henry story. An extravagant sacrifice is in one sense wasted, because these poor peasants cannot really comprehend the magnitude of the gift, and by morning, when they’ve sobered up, they will probably have lost most of its beneficial effect. But no matter; the banquet table is set before them anyway. In her no-holds-barred generos­ity Babette offers these broken, dispirited souls a taste of reassur­ance that their long years of faithfulness have not been in vain. She mirrors to them what God is like, what love is like, what true humanness is like. And she does it precisely by throwing away her entire escape route in a single act of extravagant abundance, extravagant beyond the bounds of earth (and therefore invoking the presence of heaven). That’s the kenotic path.

Theologians have sometimes commented that if the goal of ascent mysticism is to bring about union through convergence at the point of origin, the effect of the kenotic path seems to be. self-disclosure and new manifestation. The act of self-giving brings new realms into being. It shows what God is like in new and different ways. Some of the most intuitive theologians of our times say that this is how the world was created in the first place—because, in the words of Karl Rahner, “God is the prodi­gal who squanders himself.” The act of self-giving is simulta­neously an act of self-communication; it allows something that was coiled and latent to manifest outwardly. “Letting go” (as in non-clinging, or self-emptying) is but a hair’s breadth away from letting be,” and our Judeo-Christian tradition remembers that it is through God’s original “Let there be . . . ” that our visible world tumbled into existence.

I love Cynthia’s authentic thinking and writing outside the box of conventional belief.  She presents a theology that I, as a former Catholic seminary student, can easily accept and understand at a heart level.  In my own published writings and blogging, I have ascribed to “ascent mysticism” as the path of ascension to the “point of origin” we think to be up in some Heaven, a point that Jesus himself taught is within.  When he reportedly ascended into Heaven, did he go up or within? 

There is a passage in my SACRED ANATOMY book where I contemplate this paradoxical dynamic.  The word “up” can be both dimensional and non-dimensional, or vibrational, as in moving up to a higher frequency.  The same is true of the word “down.” The biblical account of Jesus’s ascension indicates that he ascended into “the clouds of heaven.”

For example, I mentioned the “clouds of heaven.”  Jesus was seen by his disciples as ascending into the clouds above their heads. These clouds may have been the conditions in their own (transforming) collective consciousness through which the Lord of Love was making his royal exit from the earthly planes back into the higher planes of being from which he had come, and from which we all come—the “kingdom of heaven” which he had told them more than once “is within you.” This could also be the inference made by the two men in white apparel whom they reportedly saw standing with him and whom they heard say to them:  “Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven?  This same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.”  This may well be a classic case where the dimensional state simply did not comprehend the non-dimensional.  The darkness did not comprehend the light.  The lower planes simply cannot comprehend the higher.  But the one who stands in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks, the seven planes of being, in the fourth dimension has both physical and spiritual eyes and can see and comprehend the non-dimensional as clearly and easily as the dimensional.

I can appreciate Cynthia’s inference that Jesus descended down all the way—actually “into hell” according to the biblical text—in order to encompass and include all the dimensions of the vast spectrum of Creation in both heaven and earth, in the cycles of restoration, which he was very intentionally in the process of initiating.  In so doing he opened the gates to the Garden of Paradise here on Earth.  As Cynthia states so well in the next excerpt from this chapter, which I will publish in my next post:

It was not love stored up but love utterly poured out that opened the gates to the Kingdom of Heaven.

Until my next post, be love, be loved and be blessed.

Kenosis: The Path of Self-Emptying Love

IN THIS SERIES, I will explore the path of “Kenotic Love” as seen through the passionate heart and Christened mind of one of my favorite authors, Episcopal prelate Cynthia Bourgeault, who has rekindled in my heart an ecstatic love for the Man whom Mary Magdalene called “Rabboni”— and who knew her as his Beloved Companion — the romantic story about which I wrote a post back in August, 2018,  The Gospel of the Beloved Companion, which would be a timely read in this day of the rising Divine Feminine. Also my October post Fifth Way Love, A Romantic Path to Transformation.

In this post I will share excerpts from Cynthia’s book THE Wisdom Jesus — Transforming Heart and Mind.  This passage speaks to Jesus’s character and his message to humankind.  Christianity does not teach the Kenotic path that Jesus literally went down.

JUSUS  

There has always been a strong tendency among Christians to turn him into a priest —“our great high priest,” in the powerful metaphor of the New Testament Letter to the Hebrews. The image of Christos Pantokrator (“Lord of All Creation”) dressed in splendid sacramental robes has dominated the iconography of both Eastern and Western Christendom. But Jesus was not a priest. He had nothing to do with the temple hierarchy in Jeru­salem, and he kept a respectful distance from most ritual obser­vances. Nor was he a prophet in the usual sense of the term: a messenger sent to the people of Israel to warn them of impend­ing political catastrophe in an attempt to redirect their hearts to God.

Jesus was not interested in the political fate of Israel, nor would he accept the role of Messiah continuously being thrust upon him. His message was not one of repentance and return to the covenant. Rather, he stayed close to the perennial ground of wisdom: the transformation of human consciousness. He asked those timeless and deeply personal questions: What does it mean to die before you die? How do you go about losing your little life to find the bigger one? Is it possible to live on this planet with a generosity, abundance, fearlessness, and beauty that mir­ror Divine Being itself? These are the wisdom questions, and they are the entire field of Jesus’s concern. If you look for a comparable category today, the closest analogy would probably be the Sufi sheik who wields the threefold functions of wisdom teacher, spiritual elder, and channel for the direct transmission of blessing (baraka), in a fashion closely parallel to Jesus’s himself. The sheik is a distinctly Near Eastern category, and it probably best preserves the mantle that Jesus himself once wore. . . .

In order to go up one must first go all the way down.  For flesh to rise, spirit must first descend.  To ascend, one must fully incarnate.  I love how deeply Cynthia understands the kenotic path Jesus took.  

THE PATH OF KENOTIC LOVE

SO FAR WE have been looking at Jesus as typical of the wisdom tradition from which he comes. An enlightened master recognized by his followers as the Ihidaya, or the Single One, he teaches the art of metanoia, or “going into the larger mind.” Underlying all his teaching is a clarion call to a radical shift in consciousness: away from the alienation and polarization of the egoic operating system and into the unified field of divine abundance that can be perceived only through the heart. But how does one make this shift in consciousness? It’s one thing to admire it from a distance, but quite another to create it within oneself.

This is where spiritual praxis comes into play. “Praxis” means the path, the actual practice you follow to bring about the result that you’re yearning for. I think it’s fair to say that all of the great spiritual paths lead toward the same cen­ter—the emergence of this larger, non dual mind as the seat of personal consciousness—but they get there by different routes. While Jesus is typical of the wisdom tradition in his vision of what a whole and unified human being looks like, the route he lays out for getting there is very different from anything that had ever been seen on the planet up to that point. It is still radical in our own time and definitely the “road less taken” among the various schools of human transformation. I will fill in the pieces of this assertion as I go along, but my hunch is that a good many of the difficulties we sometimes run into trying to make our Christianity work stem from the fact that right from the start people missed how different Jesus’s approach really was. By trying to contain this new wine in old wineskins, they inadver­tently missed its own distinct flavor. In Jesus everything hangs together around a single center of gravity, and you need to know what this center is before you can sense the subtle but cohesive power of the path he is laying out.

What name might we give to this center? The apostle Paul suggests the word kenosis. In Greek the verb kenosein means “to let go,” or “to empty oneself,” and this is the word Paul chooses at the key moment in his celebrated teaching in Philippians 2:9-16 in order to describe what “the mind of Christ” is all about. Here is what he has to say:

Though his state was that of God, yet he did not deem equality with God something he should cling to.

Rather, he emptied himself, and assuming the state of a slave, he was born in human likeness.

He, being known as one of us,
humbled himself, obedient unto death,
even death on the cross.

For this, God raised him on high
and bestowed on him the name
which is above every other name.

So that at the name of Jesus,
every knee should bend in heaven and on earth and under the earth.

And so every tongue should proclaim
“Jesus Christ is Lord!” to God the Father’s glory.’

In this beautiful hymn, Paul recognizes that Jesus had only one “operational mode.” Everything he did, he did by self-emptying. He emptied himself and descended into human form.  And he emptied himself still further (“even unto death on the cross”) and fell through the bottom to return to the realms of dominion and glory. In whatever life circumstance, Jesus always responded with the same motion of self-emptying—or to put it another way, of the same motion of descent: going lower, taking the lower place, not the higher.

What makes this mode so interesting is that it’s almost com­pletely spiritually counterintuitive. For the vast majority of the world’s spiritual seekers, the way to God is “up.” Deeply embed­ded in our religious and spiritual traditions—and most likely in the human collective unconscious itself—is a kind of compass that tells us that the spiritual journey is an ascent, not a descent. Most students of the wisdom tradition consider this upward ori­entation to be one of the foundational attributes of sophia peren­nis itself, its origins no doubt archetypal.  While my own work with the wisdom Jesus has led me to disagree, it is hard to deny that the idea of spiritual ascent has been around for a long, long time. In biblical tradition, the image of the spiritual ladder goes all the way back to the headwaters of the Old Testament, with the story of Jacob’s dream of the ladder going up to heaven. It is probably five thousand years old. Christian monastic tra­dition returned to this image and developed it still further, as essentially the roadmap for the spiritual journey. The seventh century teacher John Climacus (“John of the Ladder”) even took his monastic name from this powerful image, and through his influential teachings it became the underlying philosophy of monastic practices such as lectio divina and psalmody.

Ascent mysticism was very much in the air in Jesus’s time as well. Earlier in this book I spoke of the Essene community, that apocalyptic Jewish sect whose visionary mysticism and ascetic practices were probably the most immediate formative influ­ence on Jesus. At the heart of the Essene understanding was a particular strain of spiritual yearning known as merkevah mysti­cism. Merkevah means “chariot,” an allusion to the Old Testa­ment story of the prophet Elijah being taken up to heaven in a chariot. This dramatic episode offered a vivid image of ascent to God, which the Essenes saw as applying both individually and for the entire people of Israel. “The end of the world was at hand,” and all eyes were gazing intently upward as Jesus took birth on
the earth.

To rise requires energy, in the spiritual realm as well as the physical one. And thus, the vast majority of the world’s spiritual technologies work on some variation of the principle of “conservation of energy.” Within each person there is seen to reside a sacred energy of being (sometimes known as the “chi,” or prana, the life force). This energy, in itself infinite, is measured out to each person in a finite amount and bestowed as our basic working capital when we arrive on this planet. The great spiritual tradi­tions have always taught that if we can contain this energy rather than letting it leach away—if we can concentrate it, develop it, make it more intentional and powerful—then this concentrated energy will allow us to climb that ladder of spiritual ascent. 

This ancient and universal strategy is really at the basis of all genuine asceticism (that is, asceticism in the service of conscious transformation, not as a means of penance or self-mortification). And there is good reason for this: the strategy works. Through the disciplines of prayer, meditation, fasting, and inner witness­ing the seeker learns how to purify and concentrate this inner reserve and to avoid squandering it in physical or emotional lust, petty reactions, and ego gratification. As self-mastery is gradu­ally attained, the spiritual energy concentrated within becomes strong enough and clear enough to sustain contact with those increasingly higher and more intense frequencies of the divine life, until at last one converges upon that unitive point. It’s a coherent and powerful path of inner transformation. But it’s not the only path.

There’s another route to center: a more reckless path and extravagant path, which is attained not through storing up that energy or concentrating the life force, but through throwing it all away-or giving it all away. The unitive point is reached not through the concentration of being but through the free squan­dering of it; not through acquisition or attainment but through self-emptying; not through “up” but through “down.” This is the way of kenosis, the revolutionary path that Jesus introduced into the consciousness of the West.

THE PRAYER OF ST. FRANCIS

I will leave you to ponder this original prayer of St. Francis, believed to be written by a French Franciscan and based on a little known admonition Francis wrote to his friars, according to James Twyman. 

Where there is charity and wisdom, there is neither fear nor ignorance.

Where there is patience and humility, there is neither anger nor disturbance.

Where there is poverty (simplicity) with gladness, there is neither covetousness nor greed.

Where there is quiet and meditation, there is neither concern nor wandering.

Where there is love of God to guard the house (cf. Lk. 11:21), there the enemy cannot gain entry.

Where there is mercy and discernment, there is neither excess nor severity.

I am deeply thankful to God for life, for health, for serenity of mind and peace of heart.  I am particularly thankful at this time of harvest when we celebrate Thanksgiving for the abundance of Mother Nature as she clothes the trees with new leaves in the wake of devastating hurricanes.  I am profoundly thankful for my companion in life, Bonnie Lee, and for all our family on the West Coast.  Thank you, Lord, for the gift of their presence in our life and in our world.  To my readers and blog followers, a heartful appreciation for traveling with me these past several rich years of sharing the meditations of my heart.  I always enjoy your responses.  Until my next post,

Be love. Be loved. Be Thankful

A Nuclear Community

“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.

Transmutation of Planet Earth, page 3: Resurrection and Ascension

Our Beautiful Planet Earth

“Jesus said: This sky will cease to be, and the sky above it will cease to be. The dead do not live, and the living will not die.”   —From The Gospel of Thomas

Transmutation of substance precedes resurrection and ascension.  In order for substance to ascend to a higher vibratory level, it has to be refined.  There is only one creative force that can refine and transmute substance so that it can ascend to a higher vibratory level, and that’s the gentle, subtle energy of the fire of Love.  

Transmutation results in an upgrade of vibratory rate, causing a substance to appear as a new and different substance, only it’s not.  As Lord Exeter emphasizes right at the start in the excerpt that follows, Love is all there is.  There is nothing in the entire Universe that is not a differentiation of the one substance of Love.  One might argue the point and say “Well, there’s hate. Hate is not love.” No it isn’t. In fact, it is the absence of love—but only absent from expression through the human heart and mind.

Hate is nothing.  It is a void where love has been withdrawn or withheld, something only we human beings are free to do.  Only human beings can hate, can deny love its expression in the world, and suffer the consequences.  The consequences of hate are violence, destruction and death, all of which are occurring in our world today where the controlled release of love through hearts and minds is blocked by a hardening of the heart.

Lord Exeter refers to the heart as a “womb” for the birth of life, and a heaven out of which creation manifests. Where this womb is shut, closed to the spirit of Love, it is burned and hardened by its resistance to the very fire that would purify it and to the love that would heal its wounds.  Without the controlled release of the fusing fire of Love, the fire of fission erupts from below to burn up what cannot, or will not, ascend to a higher level, including the womb of the heart, turning it into a lump of ash too heavy to ascend—and where one’s heart goes one’s body follows.  As Lord Exeter points out in the last words of this excerpt, there is a lot more descending than needs to descend in the true state. 

I am interested in love and peace, life and creation, resurrection and ascension, as was Lord Exeter when he gave this service.  As before, read with an open and still mind and quiet heart. Open to the current that weaves truth and wisdom through his words.  It’s in the heart where spiritual essences are discerned and understanding occurs.  

“Transmutation with Regard to the Total Earth” (continued)

We have been considering the resurrection. The womb may be said to be the means by which life is born. The substance of love was first necessary if there was to be the substance of the womb. There is nothing else but love substance, all the way through—love substance but at different vibratory levels. And the substance of the womb is the heaven in relationship to the life that is to be born. We find at every level there is a heaven involved—a connection. You may remember that the second day of the creative cycle described in Genesis spoke of the firmament, the heaven, the connection between the waters above and the waters below, between the truth above and the truth below—the means by which what is below may be brought forth. The heaven at any level is rightly a state where there is a particular atmosphere and a particular enfoldment and a particular control, by which the creative process may continue. All that indicates the presence of what is called truth. So there is a heaven connecting the substance of love above with the substance of life below. There is one heaven.

(Right-click on the image and open in a new window for a larger view—or spread image with fingers.)

We may also see that this total area is the Triune Heaven relative to this area here—what we have called the Triune Earth. What is above is spirit, present in the dimensional world, and the fourth, the level of the heart, represents the connection, the heaven, between what is above and what is below. What is below is the Triune Earth—we could look at them as spheres, which gives them another dimension, one inside the other. The visible earth is at the center. Insofar as physical vision is concerned, that is the only one that is visible. All the others are invisible. And if we were looking at the planet earth we might recognize the fact that it is much larger than the physical ash at the center. It could extend out to about the orbit of the moon. The human view of things, which is based in involvement with externals, always emphasizes the lowest level, so that the earth, the planet, is thought of as being the thing—but it’s only one seventh of the thing. I’m not saying that all the various concentric spheres are regularly the same amount bigger than the one inside. This is merely a diagram of something. But here is a whole. The waters above connected with the waters below by the sphere represented by form, which relates to the substance of the heart—the pure heart, if the creation is as it should be, the pure heart which is the window through which what is above can shine into what is below and therefore be present relative to what is below. It all is there back of what is below—it all permeates what is below. But if the fourth sphere is dense, cloudy, then the larger spheres are not known relative to the smaller spheres in the middle, relative to the earth and to human nature. So the concern is that this veil should be dissolved, the clouds should be dissolved, so that it all may be known as One. The smallest part of it is the earth. The smallest of us is our physical bodies. There is much greater stature than that. Now we see the earth as quite a large planet in fact, relative to the physical earth—much larger than the physical earth. However even if it is as large as the orbit of the moon in fact, that is very small still relative to the size of the solar system. So here we begin to see the symbol of largeness in one direction and smallness in the other direction.

(Right-click on the image and open in a new window for a larger view—or spread image with fingers.)

Now this heaven, which includes the realms of what we call spirit in the dimensional world—seven, six and five—is the cool place, where there is a temperate atmosphere. It’s a comfortable place for angels to dwell. And it is a place of control—this is the kingdom. As the connecting sphere becomes a window through which the nature and quality of heaven may shine, it emerges into the three lowest spheres as the fire of transmutation. In other words, the hot place is the Triune Earth. Here is where the fire is burning in order to transmute the substance, beginning with the physical substance of the earth, into substance of a higher vibratory level. Here is the returning aspect of the cycle—ascension, something moving up. There is the process of transmutation at work in the earth. This is the primary level of where the transmutation is occurring, so that there may be a movement upward, not as though the earth was going someplace—that might not be the concept with respect to the earth but it has been in Christianity. The physical earth is supposed to pop up out of the graves and go to heaven someplace.

But there is no movement in fact in this fashion. It is a transmutation of the substance exactly where it is, not someplace else. And what is occurring may be said to refine—a refiner’s fire by which the substance is refined and changes its nature. We can see this in a very elementary way: the changing of the nature of the mineral earth as it is lifted into the bodies of living forms, whether vegetable or animal or whatever. The substance of the flesh of your body is different to a model of your body made in marble. The flesh of your body and all its various parts are composed of entirely different substance—it’s a different quality, a different nature. So there has been that much transmutation in the experience of your own physical body from the mineral level—something has been happening. It is assumed that it is in the nature of a circle: the substance is just lifted up into your physical body, it stays there for a while, and then bang, it collapses down into the mineral kingdom again. This is not exactly the way it works now, in fact, but it certainly is not the way it was designed to work in the original creation—it isn’t a circle. There is a continuing movement upward, and whatever has been sufficiently refined to move to the higher level moves to the higher level. And what is not capable of moving to the higher level drops down to the lower level, so that it may be acted upon again by the creative fires in the refining process, and gradually it is lifted up. There is less and less left in the way of ash and more and more moving in the ascending spiral.

There is a transmutation occurring with respect to this total planet, not just with respect to the earth aspect of it, which is the very smallest aspect. There is something happening with respect to this total planet—a movement upward; an ascending cycle is at work. But since man left his position it has been a very slow and limited process. Everything has been at a standstill virtually. It is not working the way it should—only partially so—and very little has occurred since man fell of the true creative process. It couldn’t, because there was no man in place to let it happen. This outlines something which is incapable of being encompassed by the human mind; but it is something that is happening, whatever words may be used to describe the process, of which it is necessary to become increasingly aware. Here is something actually occurring with which we are associated. If we tend to sort of blot it out of our experience with the idea that mentally speaking we can’t grasp it, then we certainly can’t participate in a way that is going to be of any value in the process itself, for which we carry a very definite responsibility.

As angels we carry that responsibility, and we are here to let that responsibility be fulfilled. As we move together these things naturally will clarify themselves to the extent that we are willing to let it be so, willing to let the Word of God be spoken in our own individual and collective experience. There is the ascending cycle at work, even though it isn’t working the way it should work. It is limited and restricted, and a lot more is descending than needs to descend in the true state.

“As we move together these things naturally will clarify themselves to the extent that we are willing to let it be so, willing to let the Word of God be spoken in our own individual and collective experience.” This sentence holds the key to how the process of transmutation of the total planet unfolds with our participation.  More needn’t be said.  As always, I welcome comments from my readers as I enjoy and value others’ thoughts along these lines.  Until my next post,

Be love. Be loved.

Transmutation of Planet Earth, page 2: Beyond Transformation

 

Earth and Moon


“Whoever is near me is near the fire. Whoever is far from me is far from the Kingdom.” —Jesus, from The Gospel of Thomas

 

Transmutation is by the unified radiation of love.  In this post I will push the envelope a bit to contemplate further the process of transmutation and ascension.  We have completed the process of transformation of consciousness sufficiently to move on to what’s next. I will share a presentation by contemporary spiritual teacher Lord Martin Exeter (1909-1988), whom I was honored and privileged to know as my mentor in transformation—words that may bring to remembrance the commission we signed up for as angels before incarnating on Earth. I will share a part here and another part next weekend.  I started sharing this consideration in a blog post back in June.  If you haven’t yet read that excerpt, it will help in understanding this one, as it flows from the other. He was speaking about true angelic stature, and then moved into a consideration of the transmutation of the total earth, the earth of our planet as well as that of our physical body.

As Lord Exeter points out toward the end of his presentation, the mind is incapable of comprehending how this process plays out.  However, as he emphasizes, it is something that is occurring with which we are associated, and as angels it is necessary that we become increasingly aware of it, as we have a responsibility to participate in the process in a meaningful way.  In other words, we can’t just blow it off as something the mind simply cannot comprehend.

As we know, there is a Creative Process, and we—Man, male and female, made in the image and likeness of God—are created with capacities that equip us to participate in creation.  How can we participate in creation unless we know what is actually going on within the context of the ascending and descending cycles of the creative process. We can’t as long as we are distracted by and preoccupied with the problems in our mind-made world.  From the Creator’s standpoint, these problems are insignificant.  They are simply the outworking of cycles set in motion by self-centered, self-active humans who are bent on consuming the earth and her resources expending minimal effort replenishing them.

The world we have created is not much different from the world that was destroyed by the Great Deluge of Noah’s day.  We have multiplied flesh upon the face of the earth and polluted our world beyond the point of return to healthfulness.  And now we are “at war” with a virus that is changing our way of life and threatening our economy and our very existence, taking out the inflicted on an hourly basis.  From the standpoint of an over-crowded planet, this may be Mother Nature’s way of reducing the population, albeit by a very small fraction relatively speaking.  From one viewpoint, it may be a “harvesting” of souls—reminiscent of what was foretold in the “RA Material” that both Edgar Casey, and today David Wilcock, have delved into and published research on—(a brief review of which I will include later in this series).

Jacob’s “ladder” reaching up to heaven from the earth is busy with angels ascending back Home with others descending to don infant forms created by our runaway species.  Abortion may well be a Godsend, allowed because of the “hardness of men’s hearts,” the same reason divorce and remarrying among the Israelites was permitted by Moses.

Who is to say abortion is not a divine intervention to put a rein on the number of people populating this relatively small planet?  Religious groups who object to abortion may well be going against the Creator’s efforts to stem the tide of Earth’s population explosion, and the flow of angels descending to incarnate, thousands of them finding their earthly destinations terminated and having to return to the realms of light. 

How many of us ever think about this, the dilemma we may be creating here on earth for the Creators responsible for maintaining a balance in this world between occupancy and sustainability without imposing on our freedom of will and choice?  In an orderly Universe where design and control are essential patterns in the creative process, do we not imagine that there are just so many angels assigned to this planet simply due to its size?  Seven-billion seems to be about right, as we started being over-crowded and an exhausting drain on our natural resources shortly after passing that mark just a few decades ago.  Even seven-billion self-centered humans unconscious of their angelic presence are too many.

And we squabble with one another over racial discrimination and economic disparity in the midst of the impending collapse of our uncivilized world, dubiously grateful for a common viral enemy uniting us, though not for long as people rush to get back to “normal “ and “business as usual,” neither of which appear likely.

When will we as a race of human beings begin seeing what’s occurring on Earth from the Creator’s viewpoint above Creation?  See what’s actually going on from a heavenly perspective?  It’s finished.  Game over.  Time to stop playing children’s games and get back to the real mission for which we as divine beings, angels of light and love each one, signed on, part of which relates to the process of transmutation and ascension already occurring and has been from day one, only it’s wanting to move on to a higher and finer vibratory level.  It needs our conscious participation.  

This is what Lord Martin Exeter offered to the awakening world some forty-one years ago and addresses in this excerpt: a view from above—or from within, depending on one’s viewpoint.  Take the time, be still, and let the current moving through his words be received into your heart, where alone true understanding is possible.  It’s in our hearts where we are being given understanding of these things so that we can participate in the creative process in a meaningful way.  Listen with a still and open mind and heart.  

“Transmutation as it Relates to the Total Planet”

So there is this largeness in the representation of God in one’s own experience but smallness in representing the people to God. There is always humility before God. This obviously is representing the right attitude of the people toward God: you are humble before God, you are very conscious of your insignificance in God. But the fact of insignificance in God, because God is so limitless, in no way denies your stature in the world. We have that stature, we are responsible for it. This is related to the upward view and the downward view. There is another way this is sometimes considered—the inward view and the outward view. Now we can see how this inward view, when people look in, there is a tendency for them to think that they are looking toward something rather small. And when we look out it’s this vastness—we live in a big world, and that big world goes on and on and on in a vast universe. We think of the largeness therefore as being external and the smallness internal, which, from our previous considerations, you can see is just the reverse of the fact. The smallness is external, the largeness is internal.

(Right-click on the image and open in a new window for a larger view—or spread image with fingers.)

Let’s start with the smallness of the physical level of things. This is the smallest part of the whole. When looking into the universe, the physical substance in the universe fills a minute fraction of the total space. In other words the physical substance is the smallest aspect of the universe. Let us look at this little circle here as representing this planet, the earth, numbered 1. Relative to the total circle, the earth at the center is very small. We have seen that the substance of love in its pure essence fills and encompasses the whole dimensional world. At the moment we are looking at it from the standpoint of the planet earth; or we could look at it at the same time from the standpoint of our own physical bodies, represented by that little core numbered 1. The outermost circle represents the undifferentiated substance of love that is present everywhere from the circumference to the center. Every level illustrated by the circles that I have drawn is back of that first level. All of the levels therefore are present relative to that little circle at the center—that is the place where the substance is richest—all the levels are there. That is the only place where all the levels actually are. Each level permeates the level below it and extends beyond it, and this is illustrated here. So do not let us think of the seventh level, the substance of love, as merely being a little strip around here. It isn’t—it’s right from here to the center. It’s all‑inclusive.

We have noted that the level of the womb, numbered 6, could be said—if we are considering the creative process—to be the residue which was of such a nature that it couldn’t remain in the pure essence of the substance of love. In the creative process, fire is used as a symbol of what occurs. When a fire burns, ash remains; there is a residue remaining. As the fire burns in the pure substance of love, there is that which naturally falls into the next lower vibratory level, so that each subsequent level, as the fires burn, is the ash relative to the one higher, until we come finally down to the earth itself, which is the residue of everything that has happened in the creative process. We can see something moving, coming down from God in the creative process, but it isn’t a one‑way street. There is the working of the creative fires and the residue which results therefrom. But when the whole thing has been done and these various layers of residue are there, is the creative process going to quit? What would be the point? You just have a lump of something. It doesn’t work merely in one direction, even from the very start. There is what is represented by Jacob’s ladder, something ascending and descending. It’s all going on at the same time. There is a provision for ascension, so that the ash may not remain as ash.

We see something of this from the standpoint of the earth, the planet. Clearly there is a means here on the surface of the earth by which a transmutation is taking place. The mineral substance is being lifted up into what are considered to be animate forms of various sorts. There is an ascending process occurring. Substance is being lifted, the ash of the earth is being lifted into other configurations. As it is lifted the nature of the flesh of the earth, which was before seemingly an inanimate mineral, now becomes something else, much more resilient and flexible, and the forms into which it is lifted become progressively more complex. Here is some evidence, at the initial level of transmutation, of what may be called ascension, the means by which substance is being resurrected so that it need not remain ash. This cycle of ascension is going on and we have a responsibility in this area.

One can see, after reading Lord Exeter’s, words, what is required of us if we are going to take on this responsibility.  For one thing, an elevation of our consciousness to a level well above where it was forty-one years ago when he opened up this consideration; and, most important, being present and conscious as angels.  I will continue along these lines in my next post.  As always, I welcome comments from my readers and enjoy sharing others’ thoughts along these lines.  Until then,

Be love.  Be loved

Transmutation of the Earth, page 1

“I have thrown fire on the world. Look! I watch it until it blazes.” 

Jesus, from the Gospel of Thomas

Transmutation is by fire—the fire of love.  Continuing in this series “Crucibles for Transmutation and Ascension,” and sharing excerpts from my book SACRED ANATOMY—where spirit and flesh dance in the fire of creation. This post delves deeper into the chemistry and alchemy of transmutation, which begins deep within the soil of the earth and continues on up into and through our body temples where ceremonial vessels render gifts of Nature up to pay homage to their Creator.

Ceremonial Vessels

This sacred process continues in our body temples.  All of the body’s anatomy is used in the Ceremony of Ascension and is therefore sacred.  The ceremony is life itself, an eternal, sacred dance of atomic particles winding their way back Home, to ascend with their gifts through the body’s digestive system and to be renewed and sanctified in the shadow of their Creator.

Sacred vessels are used in this Ceremony of Ascension.   They are the glands and organs by which chemicals are produced to break down and purify substance and to move it upward toward the altar for sacrifice.  From our hands, with which we prepare the food for this service and lift it up to our mouths; to the tongue which conveys the food into the mouth to be ground and mixed with enzymes from the salivary glands; to the stomach, intestines and colon, which serve to prepare the substance for assimilation and absorption, with the help of the pancreas, liver, gallbladder and spleen—all are sacred vessels used to lift substance from one level to the next in an eternal process of ascension.   The heart, bloodstream and lymphatic system participate by circulating essential nutrients and oxygen from the lungs and phytochemicals in foods for the “burning” and consumption of the sacrificial offerings.  To “sacrifice” means to sanctify or make holy.   Thus is the substance from out of the vegetable and mineral kingdoms taken into the temple to give its essences into the building, maintenance and operation of our house of being.  In the process it is sacrificed.

What ascends upward on a continual basis is the refined atomic substance of the natural world of creation carried into the temple as gifts offered up from out of the animal, vegetable and mineral kingdoms.   What goes forth is rightly the blessing of life itself to all living forms.  That blessing is initially a barrage of digestive juices and enzymes which break up structures of food particles so that their essences may ascend more easily with the integrative cycle to become part of the body temple.  What cannot thus ascend is carefully but thoroughly eliminated from the temple through kidneys, bowels, lungs and skin to participate in the disintegrative cycle as fuel and fodder for the ongoing creative processes of life.   All of this is going on beyond our conscious awareness every moment of every day and night.

There are also the sacred vessels of mind, thoughts, words, heart, feelings and voice, as well as our tactile, visual and auditory senses.  All are rightly used by us as priests and priestesses in worship and blessing, communion and communication.

The word sacred derives from the Latin word for priest, sacerdos.  A priest, or priestess, is one who brings the radiance of the Christ into the world.  Anointed with the oil of love, he/she provides ritual space filled with love and reverence for God and all that is sacred, in which may be enacted the ceremony of communion with God in the cathedral of the Natural World.

All this, of course, relates to the true function of the angel in the temple restored to its beauty, glory and sacred purpose.   That restoration awaits the return of the body temple to this sacred service in the ceremony of life. That service and restoration is the initial work of each angel incarnate and can only be done by the angel him or herself.   For the temple itself is an extension of the incarnate angel.  Without the angel, not only would the temple be without meaning or purpose, but without existence as well.   So the initial requirement is to awaken to one’s own true identity and presence as an angel in this place of worship. Then the ceremony is conducted by a conscious angel on earth.

There is another ceremony, sometimes called “the temple service,” a term that refers to sacred sex.  As we shall explore later in depth, this service is specific to the final stage of ascension and transmutation of atomic substance into the realms of light, as incense rising, where it conveys essences of worshipful praise and thanksgiving upward and the outpouring of radiant love into the world. In this ceremony atomic substance is charged with the creative command of love.  All things work together for the perfect outworking of the Creative Process of life; all are therefore sacred and holy.               

In these ceremonies, as in a religious worship service at a cathedral or temple, something is offered upward of praise and thanksgiving to God, and something is offered outward in the form of blessing and sanctification. The ultimate benediction received in a ceremony of worship is a deeply felt connection with God in a personal way—a longing in the heart and soul of every man and woman on earth, whether consciously or unconsciously—consummated and celebrated in the “communion service.”   It is this longing that compels us along our paths to find happiness, joy and fulfillment in life—to discover God and Self as one.        

 As the vessels of the temple are so used in lifting praise and worship upward to God and conveying blessing outward into the world, they are sanctified in the radiant outpouring of love and consecrated as sacred vessels of the temple—made sacred in the sense that they are used by the priest or priestess in this Ceremony of Ascension to generate the spiritual substance of connection between the Spirit of God and the Body of God on Earth.  In this is the full meaning and purpose of life for human beings in the lower planes of Being.  In this lies the secret to health and longevity, to the radiant living of life, to majesty and excellence, to glory and beauty.  In this is the whole life purpose of the angel incarnate on Earth.  Our natural state is one of praise to our Creator as individual cells in His body, that in the state of praise, shared by all the cells in the body, the Body of God may rise up in the Earth to give Deity a means of being and acting in this realm of Creation. ♦

We have only something to give back to the Creator what has been his from the beginning.  We can’t give God anything he doesn’t already have and own, except perhaps praise and thanksgiving.  But even the angels offer up praise and thanksgiving to the Creator continually (as do the crickets).  We don’t own anything of and on the Earth, real estate notwithstanding.  As Chief Seattle stated his truth and wise counsel: 

“Teach your children what we have taught our children: that the earth is our mother.  Whatever befalls the earth, befalls the children of the earth.  If we spit upon the ground we spit upon ourselves. This we know.  The earth does not belong to us; we belong to the earth.  One thing we know which the white man may one day discover: our God is the same god.  You may think now that you own him as you wish to own our land; but you cannot.  He is the God of all people.  And compassion is equal for all.  This earth is precious to God, and to harm the earth is to heap contempt on the Creator.  So love it as we have loved it. Care for it as we have cared for it.  And with all your mind, with all your heart, preserve it for our children and love it as God loves us all.” ― Chief Seattle 

Back in the days of my own spiritual awakening and coming forth, I was gifted with a powerful experience of oneness with the One whose Earth this is.  This song emerged from out of that ecstatic experience of oneness, sung in the first person “I.” It is profoundly meaningful and sacred to me in a very personal way.  I trust that you can hear it and identify with it in the light of your own emergence as a lord in your world. May it quicken in you a sense of oneness with the Lord of lords as a steward and co-owner of “the Earth and the fullness thereof; the world and they that dwell therein.” 

The Earth is the Lord’s.

As Chief Seattle said, the earth does not belong to us.  Rather we belong to the Earth, which belongs to the Lord.  People say they belong to this organization or that organization; to this church or that church; to this political party or that one.  In truth, we belong solely to God, to the Lord and Archangelic Sovereign of this planet and solar system. This I know.  Until my next post, 

Be love.  Be loved.

Crucibles for Transmutation and Ascension, page 3: Sacred Design of the Body Temple


Completing the story of King Solomon before continuing in the theme of this series, it is significant in the historical context that Solomon’s kingdom was a failed opportunity for Paradise to be restored on Earth and Man restored to his original role in Eden as co-creator with God.

As you read this post, keep in mind that another and final opportunity is with us today, and we either rise and seize the day or we fall down into oblivion.  The Earth will go on to become the Paradise it was created to be, only without humankind—perhaps for the habitation and true stewardship of Spiritual Man, made in the image and likeness of God decked with majesty and excellence, clothed with a body of light and radiant as a sun—or perhaps more like a Christmas Tree decorated with lights of all the colors of the rainbow.

I wrote a sweet little Christmas song back in my spiritual awakening days that was inspired by the symbol of the Christmas Tree. It’s called “This Angel’s Tree.”  This was back when I was more swift and agile on my feet. Have a listen: 

  

And now on to Solomon’s story, from which we may glean what we must cease doing in order to move with the returning cycle of restoration.  This excerpt is from my book SACRED ANATOMY, where spirit and flesh dance in the fire of creation. In this excerpt I reference the late biblical historian Grace Van Duzen’s legacy work, THE BOOK OF GRACE, A Cosmic View of the Bible.

Solomon’s kingdom represented the culmination of a failed cycle of resurrection for the Body of Mankind—which began to move, actually, with Seth, one of Adam’s sons, out of whose lineage came Noah and, through Noah’s lineage, Abraham. The cycle was initiated with the sparing of Isaac’s life as he was about to be slain in a sacrificial offering by Abraham, his father, upon a mountain in the land of Moriah. With this action, Abraham brought to an end an ancient pattern of human sacrifice that had long been an integral part of ceremonial worship on earth.  The rest of the cycle as recorded in the Old Testament is the story of the rise and fall of the nation of Israel, which had several kings and prophets before it came to an end.  Among these was King Solomon.

Solomon’s kingdom was, without exception, of the highest order, first spiritually and, consequently, materially.  Eden was in the process of being restored as heaven and earth were being revealed as the inseparable duality they are.  As Grace depicts in her book, his close attunement with God resulted in a reflection in the material wealth of his earthly kingdom of the heavenly wealth of the heavenly Kingdom of God.  His great wisdom and wealth attracted wisdom and wealth, such as the Queen of Sheba herself  (the only female Egyptian Pharaoh of that era) from the south of Solomon’s kingdom,  as well as King Hiram of Phoenicia from the north.  It was the highest point to which any remnant of human consciousness and civilization had ever risen in the cycles of restoration since the “Fall.” Referencing Immanuel Velikovsky’s book, Ages in Chaos, as her source, Grace speaks of the recognition of Solomon’s greatness by “Queen Sheba” (which turns out to be the name of the queen herself rather than a place):

‘Queen of Egypt and Ethiopia’ is a fitting description of Egypt’s sovereign at that time her kingdom including those countries.  Aside from the unique instance of a female ruler, the record of a pharaoh visiting a foreign king and acknowledging the superiority of that one, exhibited by Sheba, is not to be found anywhere.

Solomon’s glory and his kingdom deteriorated, however, as the king himself began to become subjugated to his great wealth and many wives, by means of whom he had acquired his wealth.

According to the story Grace so graphically portrays, Solomon took unto himself wives who were princesses of the surrounding nations, which then became part of his great kingdom.  In trying to please everyone in order to be accepted as the ruler of the world at that time, he lost his orientation in the one God and soon began to be ruled by his wealth and his “strange wives.” Instead of lifting them up to worship the one God of Abraham, he allowed them to continue in their sacrifices to their pagan gods, he himself joining with them by building altars to these other gods and worshiping them himself. Thus did his reign as a great spiritual and temporal ruler come to its sad demise, as did Queen Sheba’s, who is believed to have been murdered by Thutmose III, her nephew and successor—who also defaced the beautiful bas-reliefs of her image inside the walls of her temple in his covetous lusting after her fame and fortune. 

 This story is an important one in that it tells the tale of the zenith of the cycle and pattern of ascent initiated with Abraham that was intended to reunite Mankind with the One God and Creator of this world and of all its kingdoms, to the end that the kingdoms of this world might once again become “the kingdoms of our Lord and of  his Christ.”   As told by Grace in her book, it is as fascinating as it is foreboding.  If where we as a people are headed today is a repeat of where we have been in the past, then this story is well worth revisiting by the peoples of every nation as an example of how seeds planted inexorably come to harvest and how the divine design cannot be thwarted.

I do not believe, however, that Solomon’s story is a foreboding tale of our own journey.  For we are awakening, none too early, to the victorious nature of our divinely inherited destiny as sons and daughters of God, a tribute we alone cannot claim but must share with all who have gone before us. It is to this I would now like to give deeper consideration.  For our temples of flesh are the living structures upon which are based the architectural designs and ceremonial functions of the great temples of old. Let us continue our exploration.

Sacred Design of the Body Temple

Our body temples, built in the silence of the womb, have a specific and purposeful design.  For example, there is the “encampment” of all the body tissues, organs and systems where the activities of cellular life go on continually and the affairs of nourishment and elimination are carried out.  Then there is the “outer court” of the brain and nervous system, where communication and mental activities are conducted in a contained and highly organized system.  Part of the function in the outer court of the human temple relates to planning and preparation of foods for consumption—and, as we shall see, for sacrificial ceremony.  The primary activity in the outer court relates to the conscious living of life according to the laws that govern life in the universe with a mind that is naturally designed to revere and protect life’s sacred essences and keep sacred things sacred.

These two physical and mental aspects comprise the body temple.  Its spiritual aspects, the Holy Place and the Holy of Hollies, comprise the tabernacle and are rightly hidden from view.  Jesus is recorded to have proclaimed in his day that “the tabernacle of God is with men.”  The tabernacle of that time represented the dwelling place of God. As we shall explore later, the point of entry for the indwelling Spirit of God in our physical temple is established in a safe and sacred place, protected and hidden by a series of veil-like membranes in the center of the brain, corresponding to the tent and veils of the tabernacle of old.

The Holy Place is our heart, or feeling realm, and is of a spiritual nature.  Here is where the things of spirit are sown as seed, conceived and nurtured, then given first-form before they take on thought form in the mind and physical form in the material world of creation.   The heart, then, is a receptacle for spiritual essences as they emerge from out of the core of being.  It is also an altar where the ascending essences of the material world come to be blessed and offered upward.

At the very center of the temple is the Holy of Hollies wherein the Spirit of God dwells with each one.  One could think of it as a portal that opens up into the heavenly realms of light.  Like the Holy Place, it is a spiritual or vibrational space in the heart of hearts. It is known unmistakably during ecstatic moments of holy communion with the Beloved.

While the Holy Place of the heart is where the gifts of God are received into this world, the outer court is where the process of administering and stewarding such gifts of the spirit rightly takes place. Great care is needed here at the mental level of the outer court to protect the Holy Place and to keep the things of God pure and unadulterated by coarser vibrational substance.  The mind’s role is that of a guardian watching over the Holy Place of the heart to keep anything from defiling its delicate, creative atmosphere wherein the seeds of life germinate, open and begin to grow.

That which is sown and conceived in the Holy Place is in the form of blessing and spiritual nourishment for the body temple.  Those blessings are then bestowed upon the cells in the body in the form of life energy and renewal so that through them the blessings of radiant love in action might be extended further out into the world of creation, the natural world, which is our domain.  Thus is the Creator’s dominion extended to all forms in the world of creation through Man.

Ceremony of Ascension

As Grace Van Duzen has described, the entrance to Solomon’s temple was by way of a series of terraces.  Those who entered the temple did so in stages, ascending by way of these terraced steps, singing psalms as they approached the temple.  In our body temples too, as well as in the larger cathedral of the Natural World, both spiritually and physically there are patterns whereby substance may ascend before the throne of God in these temples of flesh and earth, with ceremony and sanctification.   The tradition of offering a prayer of blessing and thanksgiving before meals may be seen as part of this ceremony, preparing these food substances to enter the living temple.  Thus do we give the mineral, vegetable and animal kingdoms voice as they join in worship before the throne of God on earth.  As priests and priestesses we bless them and receive their copious gifts.  In our body temples, there is rightly a temple service of worship in progress.   I will call it the “Ceremony of Ascension.”   This service may be seen in the chemical processes at work continually in the body transforming and transmuting the foods we consume into breathing flesh and releasing their gifts of energy into the muscles and systems.  It is a sacred ceremony.  The derivation of the word ceremony itself is rooted in the word sacred.

The ceremony begins in the Natural World, where the elements seek their appointed paths upward in worship of the Creator. Seeds of previous harvests are soaked and split open by germinating acids that coat them for this specific purpose.  Rays of sunlight warm the good, brown and moist earth accelerating the growth of sprouting seedlings, their tender white and green stems reaching upward to greet His Majesty in the Sun, while their roots reach deep down into the soil to welcome awaiting elements in the fertile womb of Her Majesty and Goddess Gaia. Minerals of various densities deep within the belly of the Earth Mother find their way upward through the vegetable kingdom.  They are then broken apart (chelated) into pieces small enough to pass through the tiny veins of the plants growing in the humus soil above the layers of clay and rocks. Here they will be rearranged in preparation for use in flesh temples.  Organic acids in the soil help with this process, as roots of plants go deep to draw nutrients and water upward in this ancient ritual of ascent.

This sacred process continues in our body temples.  All of the body’s physiology is used in the Ceremony of Ascension and is therefore sacred.  The ceremony is life itself, an eternal, sacred dance of atomic particles winding their way back Home, to ascend with their gifts through the body’s digestive system and to be renewed and sanctified in the presence of their Creator.  Sacred vessels are used in this Ceremony of Ascension. 

We will explore these vessels in the next post of this series. Until then,

Be love. Be loved.
