Creating the New Earth Together

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.

“E Pluribus, Unum”

“When each person loves the other as much as he loves himself, then ‘one out of many’ becomes possible.” —Marcus Titulus Cicero

The motto of our nation displayed on its currency above the head of an eagle is “E Pluribus, Unum.”  It’s a Latin phrase lifted right out of the writings of Marcus Cicero. It translates as “Out of many, one.” Episcopal Bishop Michael Curry spoke to the usual meaning and significance of this motto on The Today Show in response to Samantha’s inquiry into a way in which we can find “common ground” in this divided nation of ours.  While it is obvious that the US is one nation of many diverse nationalities, we all share one Origin.

I would invert the order and meaning of these words to indicate that it is out of the ONE that the many proceed, as it has been from the Beginning of Creation.  Ex Uno, Multis: Out of the One, many.  Yet, even in the appearance of being “many,” we are one human race, one people, one species, one Body of Mankind, created to serve on Earth as the Body of God the Creator.  We’ve come a long ways down the many levels of Being over the long span of our sojourn in the material plane of manifest reality; about as low as we can come.     

I received a very thought-stimulating letter from one of my followers in the UK, Peter Watson.  It speaks for itself, so I will share it here without introduction. 

Dear Anthony, thank you for your fine wheel-illustration of how the power-of-love is conveyed to creation. 

           Doubtless there have been civilizations in the past. The idea of civilization, its purpose and motivation, is to improve our environment. In the present civilization, the starting-point of the caveman-stage of mankind’s rise from savagery, we toiled as hunter-gatherers, in hand-to-mouth existence. We progressed through an agricultural stage, an industrial revolution, and on to a technological space-age stage. Progress has been hampered only by conflicts of interest, between nations, and of course individuals and groups of individuals composing the nations.  

            Having come from a conflict-free realm, prior to conception, we took form in the relative safety of our mother’s womb. However, from birth onwards, and depending upon class, colour, and geographical location, it’s been anybody’s guess as to how well one might survive, let alone succeed, in the world of mankind. Somehow we weathered a compromised environment safely to a state of relative sanity, in which we can communicate with each other about sacred things. 

            Mankind’s world, unfortunately, does not share the safety of divine intervention. In their global disunity of struggle to rule by persuasion, or application, of armed might, contestants overlook the sovereignty of benign life to which we all owe our existence. 

            The enemy, when stripped of threat, or diplomatic camouflage, is fear. Fear gives license to defend; defense provokes attack. Hence a telling phrase – “survival of the fittest”– has been adopted and applied. To those assuming authority for law-and-order, this has meant armed-force; love, at best, is confined to human affection, but not to be trusted enough to control the destructive elements of human nature, such as jealousy, rage, hatred and fear. Although it is said that, “perfect love casts out fear”, nobody in public awareness, except one shining individual, has put that statement-of-truth to the test. 

            Learning of war, or defense, is as endless as the escalation of fear motivating defesce and attack. Peace has been thought of as ascendency of the fittest, or the most technologically-advanced, or the mightiest, as the fearful means overcoming the enemy. 

            For millennia, global growth has been punctuated by recovery from exhaustion, repairs of defense-mechanisms, and the replenishing of more highly refined arsenals, between wars. 

            During lapses of aggression, some philosophies have explored the power-of-thought – “the pen is mightier than the sword”, and so forth – but without adopting the ability of learning to think from truly peaceful motivation.

            Philosophy, the same as war-strategy, is biased in thought eclipsed by fear. The higher the leadership roles, and responsibility for protection, the greater is the invisible ogre of fear. As said by ‘through-a-glass-darkly’ Saint Paul,  

And even things without life giving sound, whether pipe or harp, except they give a distinction in the sounds, how shall it be known what is piped or harped?   For if the trumpet gives an uncertain sound, who shall prepare himself to the battle? . . . . For God is not the author of confusion, but of peace, as in all churches of the saints.

Harrumph! What is this talk of battle? God speaks ‘as of a trumpet’, but not for battle. Love does not ordain battle; only fear can do that.  Job too, when motivated by fear, recognized, “For the thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come unto me.

           So, civilization has brought with it a measure of fear and greed; perhaps understandably so for the cave-dwellers, as scavengers in a harsh environment, but surely there is less need of fear or greed in a world of such abundance in many parts. Imagine if those emotional-controls of fear and greed were ousted from human hearts by the provision of generosity, which so easily and recognizably characterizes the Giver of the spirit of life that freely animates us. 

            Is this just wishful thinking, or plain common-sense? Surely those in authority could and should recognize that if the uncreative [and destructive] motivations of fear and greed prevail unaddressed, there will be nothing left for anybody, which is basically what caused the demise of earlier civilizations, albeit in some other form, such as flooding and ice. 

            When ‘those-in-authority’ are mentioned, let it not be confused with those in positions of power and might by armed force; they represent the Caesars of this world, who know not love, nor the authority of life. A Good Learner is one who learns from life, not how to lead life. 

            It may be difficult for the human mind to picture the original state of Eden, prior to the need for civilization, or what happened to Eden to give rise to a condition that needed civilizing. The best we may be able to do on that score, is to ignore for a moment the way the world around us is now, and think instead of the perfection of the realm we all originate in, and come from, prior to conception. With some sacred thought, we can remember that state-of-perfection, because we were there. 

            Just as there is life after death, there is life before birth, and this is from where we originate, exactly the same as Eden, which has since become Earth. Thank you for your invitation to suggest a topic for meditation. My proposal for a new blog, Anthony, is to exercise our imagination, and memory-skills, to teleport consciousness to that time ‘in the beginning’, before the so-called Fall of man was initiated. 

            There are two significant reasons for suggesting this spiritual research; the first and most important being to clear the Name of God from any complicity in the cause of the Fall, and secondly, but just as importantly, to clear the name of Man from having been tarred by the same brush by which Adam and Eve have been tarred by theological and religious superstition.  With love and light, Peter

I appreciate my reader’s suggestion. It’s a worthy topic.  I had another letter from a dear friend who suggested I write in a more positive and uplifting mode:

Dearest Tony,
Thank you for your blog posts. It is so wonderful to feel your strong
Vibrant Spirit. Could it be helpful right now to focus on gratitude, knowing
What truly Is, and Awe?   —Alice

I am more inclined to go with Alice’s suggestion.  Actually, I have written extensively on the subject of our Edenic origins.  There’s a passage I borrowed from Richard Heinberg’s book MEMORIES AND VISIONS OF PARADISE that describes the spirit and demeanor of our ancestors and the quality of life in Eden. I will bring it forward here as a clear reminder of how we were — one that may trigger memories and visions of Paradise:  

The myths and traditions of the ancients do not portray Eden as the sort of technological Paradise that our present civilization tends to project into the future. If the Golden Age really existed, it must instead have been, as the Chinese describe it, an Age of Perfect Virtue—an age in which . . .

. . . they were upright and correct, without knowing that to be so was righteousness; they loved one another, without knowing that to do so was benevolence; they were honest and leal-hearted with­out knowing that it was loyalty; they fulfilled their engagements, without knowing that to do so was good faith; in their simple movements they employed the services of one another, without thinking that they were conferring or receiving any gift. There­fore their actions left no trace, and there was no record of their affairs.” ¹

Moving on now, I pose this question for consideration: How do we think this quality of life came about?  How was it created?  Well, we can go to the Creation Story itself in the Book of Genesis for an answer:

“And the Earth was without form and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters and God said ‘Let there be light.'”. . . and all else that followed.

In truth, all of creation that followed the creation of light was created out of light — and sound: “God said let there be. . . .”  The Word, the vibration of Love, of God’s Triune Spirit of Love, of Truth, and of Life, when given expression through the mouth of God, is made flesh and takes form in the physical planes of Being.  We are the mouth of God here on this physical plane of Being.  We are the creators of this world, and we can let it be the way we want it to be or the way that God intended it to be from the very beginning: a Paradise.  I don’t see where there’s any other option. 

Eden will be restored to Earth when we human beings consistently and clearly express the triune Spirit of God in our living.  It can come about in no other way but when we LET the Spirit of God move upon the face of the waters of our consciousness, upon which there is gross darkness.  Ex Uno, Multis. Out of the One Spirit, many. ♥

“Kenotic Love”

In my next posts, I will explore the path of “Kenotic Love” as seen through the heart of one of my favorite authors, Cynthia Bourgeault.  I will include excerpts from the inspired writings of another favorite of mine, poet and diva Diana Durham, who recently penned these words of wisdom: 

If we learn to stay true to ourselves, to feel when new insight lines up inside, or in Emerson’s words, ‘to detect and watch that gleam of light’ when it flashes across our minds, we are less likely to become controlled by others. We get a ‘feel’ for when something is right for us, or not. While we maintain our alignment, the ‘relationship’ of mind and heart, Adam and Eve, remains harmonious and effective. What is happening inside us is that we have taken on the identity of a creator — some one who authors and shapes their own world. This is the meaning of the word ‘authenticity’.

I just love such freeing and onward-looking writings and enjoy sharing them. Any thoughts you wish to share?  I welcome them. Until my next post,  

Be love.  Be loved

A Nuclear Community, Part 2

   The Atom by Live Science

WE LIVE IN A NUCLEAR COMMUNITY of stars, galaxies and solar systems, all macro expansions of the micro atomic universe with its positively charged central hub and negatively charged cloud of orbiting electrons. Everything in the Universe orbits around a positive nucleus of some kind, a reflection of an inviolate heavenly design of angelic hosts orbiting around the Supreme Creator and Ruler of the Creating Universe—along with a myriad of focused configurations of LORDS and lesser Lords of lords.  

The Atomic 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” (which I will focus on in my next post).  As I consider these two nomenclatures, I see how compliance with the One Law would bring about Oneness in the human family in “one nation under God.” 

THE ATOM

Consider what we now know about the structure and dynamic operation of this fundamental building block of Creation.  At the nucleus of the atom dwell one or more positively charged Protons and one or more neutral stabilizing particles called Neutrons.  Orbiting around this central hub of focused power are a number of Electrons carrying a negative charge.  Looming behind this atomic portal lies a reservoir of awesome power held in check by the integrity and stability of the tiny atom.  Let’s have a look at the smallest thing in the universe. The following excerpt is from Live Science website.

ATOMS are the basic units of matter and the defining structure of elements.  The term “atom” comes from the Greek word for indivisible, because it was once thought that atoms were the smallest things in the universe and could not be divided.  We now know that atoms are made up of smaller particles: protons, neutrons and electrons – which are composed of even smaller particles, such as quarks.

THE NECLEUS was discovered in 1911 by Ernest Rutherford, a physicist from New Zealand. In 1920, Rutherford proposed the name proton for the positively charged particle of the atom. He also theorized that there was a neutral particle within the nucleus, which James Chadwick, a British physicist and student of Rutherford’s, was able to confirm in 1932.

The NUCLEUS is held together by a strong force, one of the four basic forces of nature. This force between the protons and the neutrons overcomes the repulsive electrical force that would otherwise push the protons apart, according to the rules of electricity. 

PROTONS are positively charged particles found within atomic nuclei. . . .  Protons are about 99.86% as massive as neutrons.

The number of protons in an atom is unique to each element.  For example, carbon atoms have six protons, hydrogen atoms have one and oxygen atoms have eight. The number of protons in an atom is referred to as the atomic number of that element. The number of protons also determines the chemical behavior of the element. Elements are arranged in the Periodic Table of Elements in order of increasing atomic number.

Three quarks make up each proton — two “up” quarks (each with a two-thirds positive charge) and one “down” quark (with a one-third negative charge) — and they are held together by other subatomic particles called gluons, which are massless.

THE NEUTRON: a subatomic particle of about the same mass as a proton but without an electric charge, are present in all atomic nuclei except those of ordinary hydrogen.

Neutrons bind with protons and one another in the nucleus via the nuclear force, effectively moderating the repulsive forces between the protons and stabilizing the nucleus.

PURPOSE: The extra attraction from the neutrons keeps the protons’ electrical charge from tearing an atomic nucleus apart. So the reason for the neutrons is to allow more than one proton to coexist in an atomic nucleus.

[Consider this design and functional dynamic at work in a “nuclear community” comprised of people in consensus groups focused and facilitated by spirit-oriented leadership with the larger community orbiting around this hub and offering loving support in an atmosphere of accord and agreement, with input from all members of the community.]

THREE PARTS: A neutron contains two down quarks with charge –1/3 e and one up quark with charge +2/3 e. Like protons, the quarks of the neutron are held together by the strong force, mediated by gluons. The nuclear force results from secondary effects of the more fundamental strong force.

ELECTRONS are tiny compared to protons and neutrons, over 1,800 times smaller than either a proton or a neutron. Electrons are about 0.054% as massive as neutrons.  Originally known as “corpuscles,” electrons have a negative charge and are electrically attracted to the positively charged protons. Electrons surround the atomic nucleus in pathways called orbitals, an idea that was put forth by Erwin Schrödinger, an Austrian physicist, in the 1920s. Today, this model is known as the quantum model or the electron cloud model. The inner orbitals surrounding the atom are spherical but the outer orbitals are much more complicated.  (Live Science) 

 Then there’s the “God Particle” that, simply stated, gives mass to energy vortices:

In 2012, scientists confirmed the detection of the long-sought Higgs boson, also known by its nickname the “God particle,” at the Large Hadron Collider (LHC), the most powerful particle accelerator on the planet. This particle helps give mass to all elementary particles that have mass, such as electrons and protons…., which allows them to bind together and form things, like stars and planets and Donald Trump’s hair. More broadly, countless Higgs boson particles make up an invisible force throughout the universe called a Higgs field. (Chicago Tribune News, July 10, 2012) 

More current yet, there’s the “Dark Bason” that scientists cannot quite isolate and observe but strongly suspect exists somewhere in the cosmic soup of dark matter:

“Two experiments hunting for a whisper of a particle that prevents whole galaxies from flying apart recently published some contradictory results.  One came up empty handed, while the other gives us every reason to keep on searching.

Dark basons are dark matter candidates based on force-carrying particles that don’t really pack much force.

Unlike the basons we’re more familiar with, such as the photons that bind molecules and the gluons that hold atomic nuclei together, an exchange of dark basons would barely affect their immediate surroundings.

If they existed, on the other hand, their collective energy could be responsible for making up dark matter – the missing mass that provides the extra gravity needed to keep our Universe of stars in their familiar formations.

Unfortunately, the presence of such basons would be about as detectable as a murmur in a storm.  For the physicist, however, a murmur might be enough to still be noticeable given the right kind of experiment.

The two studies – one led by researchers from the Massachusetts institute of Technology (MIT), the other by Aarhus University in Denmark – looked for subtle differences in the positioning of an electron in an isotope as it jumped between energy levels.  If it swayed, this could be a telltale sign of a dark bason’s nudge.   (Source:  www.sciencealert.com)

VORTICES OF ENERGY 

As science has concluded, atoms are not things. They are “vortices of energy” that have no material dimensions. In practical terms, they are not objects that can be placed under a microscope and examined, much less manipulated.  They cannot be divided into their component parts without destroying their cohesive energetic structure and coherent functionality.  As noted above, the word “Atom” literally means indivisible–although not totally invisible. 

Our bodies are made up of these vortices of energy.  They are nuclear communities—as are all “material” structures.  In fact, there are no material structures.  The universe of creating matter is one cosmic nuclear community made up of vortices of energy vibrating at a wide range of frequencies, the lower ranges becoming visible, as well as tangible to our low-range physical senses.  

Now, just take a moment or two to let that sink in.  

THE “FORCE”

Let’s turn our attention away from the anatomy and functionality of the atom and give thought to the “force” that holds it together, as mentioned in some of the definitions and descriptions above.  What is this force that attracts neutrons and protons toward one other?  It is described as “electromagnetism.” I would describe it as the positive phase of the One Law; the radiation of Love originating from the other side of the atomic portal.  This radiation engenders response and attraction leading to union, which in turn results in the creation of a unified “cloud” or field of radiant energy that holds electrons in an orbital pattern of both response and repulsion. In other words, they are both drawn toward and repelled from the nucleus at the same time, a dynamic found at work between all atoms of and throughout the Creating Universe—including in our relationship with God and with one another.  That “force” is the Force of Love, the Fire of fusion that holds the Universe together.  

While the irresistible force of Love draws us in toward union, the radiance of our own divine being incarnate in a flesh body keeps us in a creative proximity in relationship to the all-consuming fire of Love—as well as from one another.  Only in spirit can we know union with God and with one another—that is until we ascend physically to a higher level in the transmutation and transfiguration of our outer forms. At that point, our sense of separation from God and from one another will cease to exist and we will know that union we only believed was possible before and had but a limited experience of.

I will continue this meditation in my next post.  Do feel free to share this post with your friends — and to share any of your thoughts and comments. Until my next post,

Be Love. Be Loved.

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.

Crucibles for Transmutation and Ascension, page 1

All Creation seeks to return to the Creator.

How consciously aware are you that the eggs and bacon, or yogurt and fruit, you had for breakfast this morning are being transformed and transmuted into flesh and bone and lifted up to a higher vibratory level, seeking a path back to the Creator? A rather lofty thought to begin one’s day . . . and why not?

Well, at least some of our food’s essences ascend.  What can’t ascend falls back down as ash in order to participate further in Creation. The principle at work here is all things seek to return to their origin.  All of Creation seeks to return to the Creator of heaven and earth.  Our planet itself is a crucible for transmutation and ascension with its destination bent towards the Sun, its source of origin—becoming a sun itself.  Our moon is attracted towards its earthly origin, perhaps to become an habitable planet one day.  The elemental world of Creation just seems to want to find its way back to its origin.  

According to Walter Russell, who re-invented the Periodic Table of Elements, even the elemental world is exhibiting a continual evolutionary transformation and transmutation, ascending and descending from one vibratory level to the next.

The elements of matter are an orderly and periodic accumulation and redistribution of energy. . . .  Each element is greater in its mass than its predecessor because of the generative power of electricity which acts as a brake against high axial speed and diverts it into accumulating mass.

The very elements that make up our world, then, are illusory and transitory. Iron, for instance, was once manganese, and copper was once gold based on constantly changing frequencies as the ascending spiral of invisible energy arranges and rearranges atoms and molecules in a cymatic shape-shifting creating process. The Periodic Table of Elements itself is but a snapshot of a constantly changing ascending and descending vortex of creating energy. Fascinating, isn’t it! 

Stay with me here as I offer you an opportunity to let the windmill of your mind be turned by the wind of Walter Russel’s spirit turning his own mind while delivering his brilliant truth as a scientist whose thinking is far outside the box of conventional science that resists upgrades to its sacred dogmas.  Walter Russell—described by one author as “the man who knew the secrets of the Universe,”—is to elemental science and physics what Immanuel Velikovsky was to earth science and astronomy.  Try not to “think” with your mind as you read this but simply let the current in Russell’s words flow through your mind and find its way into your heart where true thinking and understanding take place.  

From THE UNIVERSAL ONE

THE ELEMENTS OF MATTER

The elements of matter are but varying aggregations of corpuscular light units gathered together in systems familiarly known as atoms.  Atomic systems differ from solar and stellar systems solely in dimension.  In substance, structure and appearance they are exactly similar.

It has heretofore been stated that all effects of motion are repetitive.  Mass is an effect of motion and mass is repetitive, with no change whatsoever in its repetition save dimension.  A “bigger” atom such as a solar system is not different from an elemental atom of the same tone in any way but size.  Dimension is purely relative. The law for little mass is the same law as for big mass.

The elements are supposed to be many different substances, each of which is known by a different name.  Each element is supposed to be that one substance and only that.

An atom of mercury or sodium is supposed to be an atom of mercury or sodium which always has been and always will be that and nothing else.

The very foundation stone of modern physics states unequivocally in its explanation of the principles of energy conservation: “Not one particle of matter, however small, may be created or destroyed. All the king’s horses and all the king’s men cannot destroy a pin head.”

Matter constantly progresses through the cycle of disappearance and reappearance.  Every pulsation of thinking Mind brings particles into appearance and relegates others into disappearance.  Matter is evolving and devolving as all other forms of life are evolving and devolving.

A sodium particle is not always a sodium particle. It changes its dimensions in an orderly and periodic manner until it has run the gamut of all the elements of every octave, and returned to its own octave.  A radium article was once a light unit of hydrogen and will be so again.  More than this, an atom of any element actually contains within itself all of the other elements.

An atom of gold is a gold atom in dimension only.  It is not even preponderantly of the substance of gold.  It is everything else in the universe. Everything that is, is of everything else that is.  Nothing is of itself alone.

Consider for a moment an atom of manganese or an atom of iron, both of which are very similar in structure.  Instead of thinking of it as an inconceivable little thing, for the purpose of comparison imagine it magnified until it is as big as this solar system.

One would not think of this vast solar system as an atom of any one of the elements, for one knows that all of the elements are contained within it.  Yet this solar system is either a manganese or an iron atom.  As nearly as the relater can determine without precise mathematical computation and while awaiting calculation of other dimensions it is one or the other of these elements.

Its plane and extension of ecliptic, its color as a tonal system, its tonal syllable in the octave scale, its endothermic relativity as a charging system, its tonal density, temperature and other dimensions, place it within a practical certainty as one of these two elements.

Later, when calculations have been made in accordance with the relater’s formula, the relative age of this system, its exact tonal orbit, its potential position, plane, ecliptic expansion and extension will be exactly known.

This first volume will not, however, be encumbered with mathematics.

The basic principles of motion under which the One living Being functions in His thinking are simple, and simply must they be written down.  The day of the mathematician will come in the adaptation of those principles.

This solar system, being just one huge atom of iron or manganese, let us say, and to our knowledge containing all of the elements of the entire ten octave cycle in their proper proportions, can it not now be clearly seen that the concept of the elements as separate and distinct substances of exact homogeneity throughout their structures, is untenable in this universe of repetitiveness in all of its effects of motion?

Cannot it then be seen that it is not the substance itself which determines its effect as an element but merely its position, and its dimensions, in its octave constant?

Cannot it also be clearly seen that the substance of the element for which it has been named is not even preponderant in its own element?

This solar system, which is true to plane as iron or manganese, is not preponderantly iron or manganese in its composition. It could not be. It contains vastly larger proportions of many of the other elements and yet some cosmic giant might gather up a handful of such systems as ours, which to him would be a solid, and analyze them in his laboratory as iron or manganese atoms.

Therefore let old concepts of many separate substances be discarded and replaced with the true concept of but the One universal substance of many apparent dimensions, known to man in the language of inner thinking, the language of light.

There is but one cosmic substance.  This One substance appears to be divided into many substances, known as the elements of matter.

The One universal substance first divides itself into the appearance of two opposite states of motion which register as positive and negative elements.

Then two more opposite elements appear. Then two more opposite elements of increasing potential and harder crystallization appear.

The cosmic pendulum then forms one element which registers itself as neither one opposite nor the other but is equally of each; a bisexual element of maximum opposition in all periodicities of motion.

These seven apparently different substances are but different states of motion of the One substance. They are the seven tones of an octave, and there are ten octaves of seven tones each.

In the last four octaves are many mid-tones, each one registering its own state of motion. Man calls those various states of motion of the one substance by many names, and they appear to be many substances. The apparent difference between the many is due solely to difference of motion and not to substance.

Many states of motion are possible, but there are not two substances in the universe. All states of motion are measurable and are under the absolute control of Mind.  As man is Mind, man can, with dawning knowledge of causes, change any one state of motion into any other state of motion, and by so doing transmute any one substance into any other.

The granite rock may become gold, or radium, at the will of man.

THE CRUCIBLE YOU ARE

I love letting my structured thinking become more plastic and fluid so as to meld with Russell’s free-thinking mind.  And where do we human beings fit and function in this ongoing cycle of elemental transmutation and ascension?  That’s where I want to go in this series, and you are welcome to go with me and perhaps see things that I don’t and share what you see.  

Have you ever thought of yourself as a crucible for transmutation, for instance?  Crucibles are containers that generate or refocus and channel energy.  With sufficient intensification, creative energy ignites into an ascending flame of transmuting fire—in human beings, angelic fire.  I have personally experienced such a conflagration in and throughout my body with such intensity that I felt my body would catch fire and go up in flames.  It didn’t, of course . . . go up that is. It’s still with me, for now anyway, and until such time as I release it back to return to its earthly origin.  I do expect to transmute some of it to a higher and finer essence and take it with me back Home.  I believe that’s part of our role as incarnate angels: to bring some of the essences of creation—tithes if you will—back to the Creator and giver of life.

Our work as angels incarnate includes transmuting physical substance with the transforming fire of love so that it can ascend to higher vibratory levels. Our body’s digestive and hormonal chemistry and physiology are designed and directed to this end and purpose.  We spend our days and nights transmuting seemingly lifeless raw material into living flesh, and living flesh into mental and emotional levels of energy, and still higher into spiritual essences.  In a word, we live and have our being within the ascending Flame of Love. 

Is there further work to be undertaken, then, by us angels incarnate in the larger cycle of the Creative Process to facilitate and move along the complete transmutation of the elements that make up the planet so that the earth itself and its inhabitants can move gracefully in the ascending and unifying Flame of Love? I believe there is.

I invite you to take an inspirational journey with me through the sacred terrain of the physical body as seen by the angels who incarnate on earth to live and experience their divinity in the flesh, bone and blood of the human temple. This blog journey will take us into a rather profound and prophetic consideration of our destiny as Earthlings on a planet that is shifting frequency in order to adapt to the Fourth Density it has already entered, rocking the boat, so to speak, of human existence.  Hold onto your seats—or let go to the inevitability of radical shifts in our experience of reality. Our species is undergoing a complete vibrational upgrade.

As always, I welcome thoughts and comments from my readers. I will continue in this series next weekend when I will reveal in poetic detail how these biblical temples reflect the design inherent in our physical bodies. Until then,

Be love. Be loved.

Angelic Stature

“Keep peace amidst the turmoil and your crown in the chaos.”

I received several responses to my previous post, which I always welcome and truly appreciate.  Don Hynes’s poem, from which the above quote is taken, found resonance in many.  With this post, I wish to visit my previous post where I intentionally omitted two phrases from the passage I borrowed from Martin Exeter’s service, which I did simply in an effort to be discrete so as not to place word barriers in anyone’s way that may bar them from reading on and hearing what I had to say.

The phrases I omitted are “the blatherings of Satan” and the phrase referring to angels “presenting themselves before the Lord and refusing to be distracted by Satan.”  My rationale is that words, like “Lord” and “Satan,” carry familiar baggage accumulated over the years from repeated usage with limited understanding . . . which also makes them useful in connecting with an audience.  The Master Jesus referenced the “laws and the prophets” and spoke in parables to connect with the people of his day.  With his disciples, whom he came to call “friends,” he spoke more directly as they had become seasoned enough for straight talk without the necessity for parables.   

Since the time these words of Lord Exeter were spoken some forty-three years ago, human consciousness has begun to awaken to the awareness of the oneness of heaven and earth in a multidimensional world of Reality. Those of us who have awakened to the truth know that neither God nor Satan are separate from human beings.  God is not “up there in heaven,” and Satan is not “down there in hell” somewhere, or lurking around whispering evil thoughts into our ears.  God is “so close as to not even be near,” as one spiritual author wrote, and Satan is none other than our own human mind when it is self-active and running its own thoughts rather than being the still lens it was created to be focusing the truth of love for our expression in living.  It can play the role of Satan with its blathering, or it can play the role of Lucifer, the Light-bearer.  My mind is at my command, and I decide the role it will play: “Be still and know that I Am your lord, Lucifer, and the Lord of lords is my Lord, to whom alone I am answerable.” Within the divine order and cosmology, there exists a network of focused points of light, some greater than others, nevertheless all contained within the wholeness of the One Supreme Being and Creator of the Universe. Thus the phrases “Lord of lords” and “King of kings.”

Perhaps I could take the liberty of paraphrasing so as to bring it all closer to home. For example: “I present my outer self before my inner Self and tell my blathering mind to be quiet and focus on what I have to say and do!”  That could be seen as the first step toward the resolution of noisome dissonance in my consciousness: stop the blathering of the mind and be quiet. The next step might best be understood in the context of this phrase: “I present myself in silence before the LORD of lords, having put my blathering mind behind me.” Just saying this effects an inner alignment of my human capacities—and attunement with the WORD, another verbal symbol for the LORD.  Yet, even this does not entirely remove the connotation of separateness. 

Finite words, symbols that they are, fall short in the effort to articulate infinite reality. It may be that we have come to that moment in time where silence alone is all that is necessary to resolve the dissonance in our collective consciousness and in the world. I recall a phrase from the Scriptures that says something about silence: “The Lord is in his holy temple. Let all the earth keep silence before Him.” (Habakkuk 20:20) There are times while watching the news that I know the meaning of this passage and I simply reach for the remote control and turn off the television, and the blathering of the media.     

I would now like to present an excerpt from an evocative service given by Lord Martin Exeter (1909-1988) given back in 1979.  Lord Martin Cecil Exeter became the Seventh Marquees of Exeter with the passing of his brother in 1981, He first moved to the Cariboo in the 1930s to take care of his family’s large ranch at 100 Mile House, BC., where he played a central role in its development.  In this excerpt, Lord Exeter speaks candidly to the reality of angelic presence in the world of dissonance and specifically how we as angels present ourselves to people in our worlds.  In his address to this particular gathering, he refers to those present as “emissaries,” signifying those who represent a higher realm of Being to a lower; in this case the Creator to creation. He speaks specifically to the “stature” of the angels incarnate and the role the angels play in the resurrection and ascension—first of human consciousness and then of the earth—to a higher level of being.

Whether or not human beings are aware, we are creator beings. As creator-beings—another term for angels—we incarnated on Earth at the bequest of our Creator.  In effect, we volunteered to come here and represent the Creator to His creation and creation to the Creator.  Included in our domain of representation are the people on earth—each of us individually having those in our immediate worlds for whom we are responsible in our representation.  Martin offers a comparative perspective with regard to the size of the earth, which may seem large to us, whereas in comparison to our universe, our planetary domicile and domain are very small.  On the other hand, the One whom we represent is large in comparison to the angel, and the countless host of angels that are in God are each one as a grain of sand in comparison to God. So we represent something very great and large to a rather small and seemingly insignificant world, and something comparatively small to an Almighty God.  If we think of this in terms of stature, our angelic stature is large relative to humans, while being quite small relative to God.

Martin speaks forthrightly to incarnate angels everywhere who are emerging in an apocalypse of angelic light speaking truth to power and handling situations in the world with assurance and integrity:

As angels, we do not wish to behave in a brash manner. At the same time we should never deny our stature in our dealings and relationships with the people. It seems that very often emissaries have felt at a disadvantage somehow when working with people in the world. What is meant when it is indicated that one should be spiritual? In the human view this means innocuous, unimportant, unnecessary. The attitude of human nature is that it can get along very well without anything spiritual, except possibly as some sort of an adjunct to human nature. If spiritual things can be used to advantage in what human nature wants to do, well let’s include spiritual things. But it is all self‑centered, isn’t it? As angels, we are certainly not at any disadvantage with respect to people. Our stature is vast relative to the stature of any particular human nature. And while this should not make us conceited—this is angelic nature—we certainly would not deny our authority or our ability to handle what needs to be handled as angels.

The Master never denied His own reality. Occasionally that seemed to get Him into hot water, but He was able to handle the hot water quite easily—no problem. As there is the greater emergence into expression of the angelic nature, we find ourselves at a considerable advantage in the world and in our dealings with people. We really know what it is that is going on, whereas human beings in the world have very little idea as to what is going on. They see things in a very restricted way. There is a very limited outlook and a great deal of uncertainty. Of course human nature puts on a good front occasionally, but let us not be fooled by that. As incarnate angels we are far more capable of handling what needs to be handled than anyone else is, no matter how much of an expert they may be. I’m not speaking particularly of some sort of technical expertise in which we might not be well‑versed. I am thinking of this more in terms of the handling of human nature, the handling of people. In all aspects of human nature function where people are concerned, we need to recognize that we ourselves have a far larger vision, a far greater understanding, than human nature people could possibly have. So we don’t downgrade ourselves. Let’s not put the day off, so that we have to be presented with some particular situation before we will admit that we really do know. Why not admit that we really do know right now?

The pressure of our representation of God to the people—which is what it is—is not particularly in question at the moment, at least not in a specific way in the external sense; but the opportunities will arise certainly in the days to come, where all of you will be handling people and situations in a manner that reveals your capacity to represent God. God isn’t silly and God isn’t stupid. God understands what the situation is. If we represent Him, that is true of us. We don’t need to bog ourselves down in some vast cosmic view and say, “Well I don’t understand that.” That’s not the point. Why would it be necessary to understand that? The only thing that is necessary is to understand the field of our own responsibility which, much of the time, is seemingly quite small. But occasionally we find ourselves projected into a situation where there are other people who are presumably supposed to be experts, but we find out that they are not, that we know a lot more than they do. They have all the book-learning which we may not have, but we have the understanding—and it’s not “Let it be by the hand of another,” but “Let it be by the Word of God.” And we are on hand to speak the Word of God.

Human beings have peculiar concepts about the Word of God—a sort of rolling thunder expression. But I don’t think you have much acquaintance with the Word of God in that clothing; that only happens in movies, doesn’t it, where a disembodied, echoing voice comes on the scene. That isn’t really the way it works. That’s fanciful imagination. Man was created with the voice mechanism so that the Word of God could be spoken on earth. And if the voice mechanism of man is not available to be used, the Word of God is not spoken on earth. But we are offering this mechanism for use, and so the Word of God can be spoken on earth because we are here and because we are handling these situations. And we don’t have any concept that what we say must sound as though it was God speaking, because that would be pandering to human nature, wouldn’t it? And it wouldn’t go down very well with human nature either.

All that is necessary is to speak the words that are necessary and that are fitting in the situation as it arises, having an awareness that we are the ones to handle it. This doesn’t mean either that we go barging in and pushing everybody else aside and say, “Well now I’m going to handle this!” We have no evidence that the Master ever did any such thing. He was quite discreet. However, when He found Himself in a situation, He did not deny His own reality. And He found Himself in a situation very often where the ball was tossed to Him. And we will find ourselves in such situations, partly because people want to test out, but partly also because there is an increasing awareness on the part of many that here is someone who could have the answer. So if the ball is tossed to us we handle it in whatever way may be fitting. We may hold onto the ball and provide what is necessary in a direct way. On the other hand it may be fitting sometimes to toss the ball back. The Master was very expert at this, so that those who were trying to put Him on the spot found themselves put on the spot.

What He said on such occasions has been clothed in a certain type of language, in the King James version of the Bible, which commonly we would not speak nowadays. That has tended to give a sort of aura which is deemed to characterize the words of God, as though we had to speak in Biblical language. No, we speak in the tongue that is now understood. We speak in tongues in this sense, so that those to whom we speak can understand us and can have the opportunity of receiving what it is we offer, without our engendering wrong reactions by what we say or how we say it. We learn to be very diplomatic on many occasions; we also learn to be very forthright on some occasions—whatever is fitting. And as we learn to offer what is spiritually fitting we are speaking the Word of God. This is the way by which what needs to be done on earth in our fields of responsibility may be done. We find that our stature is far greater than human nature stature.

Let us not ever try to inflate ourselves in human nature, because somebody is going to prick the balloon and then there is a sense of being shattered. On that basis one is always on the defensive. We are not on the defensive. We are just offering into every situation what is needed there. But our stature relative to human nature is great. We need to have a consciousness of this as our angelic nature emerges, begins to come forth. We are small before God, but we are large before people. I would stress the fact that being large before people doesn’t mean that we stand up and beat our chests. It just means that we reveal that we are capable. We are capable of doing whatever it is that needs to be done. We don’t thrust ourselves forward, but when we find the ball is in our hands we carry it, we do with it whatever is necessary. But there needs to be this sense of stature relative to human nature, so that you are never intimidated by human nature. You represent God to the people—and you couldn’t do this without being large. So there comes a consciousness of stature. It is enhanced by reason of the fact that one does find out, in various situations, that it really is true, that one has the stature. And, for some at least, there may be a little amazement to find out that one was so much more capable than everybody else in the human nature field. This is not to say that we may not find that there are those in the human nature field still who at the same time have some sensing of the reality of angelic stature. These people you will find work with you. Sometimes it will seem that the most unlikely people are the ones who work with you. The ones you have fingered as being the ones are not the ones at all. You let it prove itself out while retaining your own integrity and your own stature, your own sense of angelic nature.

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.

It has been said that we do not live inside our bodies but that our bodies live inside of us, at the center of our rather large energetic field, similar to the earth at the center of its gigantic magnetic field.  Our spirit is much larger than our form.  I welcome your thoughts as you wish to share them. Until then,

Be love. Be loved.

Evolution: From Consonance to Dissonance to Consonance

“This is a time when we either meet the moment or miss the moment. —Eric Garcetti, Mayor of Los Angeles.

It’s a challenge to remain relevant these days as the NOW generation leaves us older folks behind—and my thoughts turn to lofty considerations that seemingly have little if any relevance to current events in the world—philosophical and existential considerations like “Where do we come from and where are we going?” Often while writing a blog article I wonder if anyone really cares about the topic. “Who cares about our origin or our destination? All I care about is where my next job will come from and paying the rent next month?”  That’s understandable . . . for those who have their noses up against the grinding stone.  There is, however, a larger picture to be seen in which these challenging times can be understood and seen for why they are the way they are and what we can do in moving forward, if we would only look up from the grinding stone.  This post offers such a perspective–but it will require you to think.

Before I launch into this post, I wish to share words and a poem from my favorite bard, Don Hynes, sent in response to my previous post:

Thank you for this wonderful perspective brother. You asked for our thoughts. Here are a few of mine:

The New Heaven
The old heaven and earth 
are passing away
before our very eyes.
Anger and opinion of little use
as the ground slips beneath our feet
and the wide sea opens.
The words written long ago
about horsemen riding
and a great city falling
are now in present tense.
Hold together what you wish
of the crumbling structures
but be sure to look ahead,
to begin the work
of the new heaven.
Don’t scar it with old hatreds,
with all that hasn’t worked.
Remember to forget
and follow the trail
that life is leading.
Keep peace amidst the turmoil
and your crown in the chaos.
New life is coming
and into that new body
we are all being born.

Thank you, Don

ORIGIN

I just finished reading Dan Brown’s ORIGIN and I’m dwelling on the chapter where he finally arrives at the anxiously anticipated moment when the pivotal character in the story, futurist and computer entrepreneur Edmund Kirsch, reveals his belief-shattering discovery of the origin of life, along with the origin and destination of the human species, as the age of Artificial Intelligence dawns.  I won’t spill the beans for those who haven’t yet read the book. But I will take a phrase from the chapter to launch a consideration along the lines of the evolution of human consciousness, incorporating also words of my spiritual mentor from back in the day of my conscious awakening. The phrase is

“DISSIPATION-DRIVEN ADAPTIVE ORGANIZATION”

Lifted from the book, this phrase takes me back to my journey through Walter Russell‘s signature work THE UNIVERSAL ONE, in which he portrays and demonstrates the “Creating Process” as one of simultaneous integration and disintegration facilitated by the dance between the equally empowered Masculine and Feminine energies, partners in creation.  When you have a few minutes, it’s revolutionary reading. Just click on the above links to previous posts.

Back to ORIGIN: Edmund Kirsch’s scientific “discovery” of the origin of life in Brown’s novel is based on the urge and compulsion of life-giving energy to move out and bring the light of life to all corners of the Universe. Ergo, the “Big Bang” theory. To accomplish this, the “Laws of the Universe” assemble atoms and molecules into forms that will “dissipate” the energy in order to spread it further out into the formless void of the cosmos.  In the process, forms are disintegrated and dissolved, making room for new forms to emerge, all for the purpose of distributing energy throughout the Universe.  In order to accomplish its drive to spread energy around, the thermodynamic law of the universe creates a state of entropy by destabilizing a system of accumulated energy so that the energy can be dissipated. 

“ENTROPY: A thermodynamic measure of the amount of energy unavailable for useful work in a system undergoing change.” (New World Dictionary)  

Many systems on the planet are undergoing change. Examples of entropy can be seen in weather patterns where hurricanes and tornadoes form to dissipate the built-up warm energy in the tropics then move out and spread the energy into cooler climates, which absorb the energy and dissolve the entropic system.  The same dynamic is at work in the cooling of a cup of hot tea where the heat is dissipated in the tea and absorbed by the cup.

In the larger picture of human relations, entropy is at work in the clash between two classes of people, such as we see in the suppressed prejudicial racial issues in America that have bubbled over into “peaceful” demonstrations against unjust treatment of “people of color” by a policing system purposed to protect them.  Eventually the energy builds up to the point of destabilizing the emotional and mental capacities of the demonstrators which results in violent, and often destructive, outburst of energy.  As the energy is spent, the demonstrations disintegrate.

Considering Don’s poem “New Heaven,” entropy is working in the transference of energy from the disintegrating old heaven and old earth to the New Heaven and New Earth in a process of transmutation.  The acceleration of transference is exponential as the new absorbs the dissipating energy and substance of the old, which appears to be going out with a bang.  To try and stop it is literally a waste of precious energy needed to empower the New Heaven and grow the New Earth.  Fighting and resisting it only feeds it and hastens its collapse.  The word of Life is “Come out of her my people.” 

New life is coming
and into that new body
we are all being born.

 

The Old God is Dying

Along with the passing of the old heaven, the old God of religion is dying.  In Brown’s novel, Edmund Kirsch’s theory is supposed to preclude the need for God in the creating universe—that is, the God of religion made in the image and likeness of man. Science with its Laws of the Universe–quantum physics, chemistry, microbiology, gravity, etc—under the dominion of Artificial Intelligence, had become the new God to replace the old. The obvious question, posed by Michael Langdon, an academic scientist himself, is “Who created the Laws of the Universe?” He suggests that there has to be an Intelligence behind the Universe wherein energy and mass oscillate between chaos and order.  

I propose a more realistic formula: LIFE-DRIVEN ADAPTIVE ORGANIZATION FOR THE ONGOING EXPRESSION OF CREATING LIFE ENERGY, in keeping with Walter Russell’s model, as portrayed in this graphic:

All created forms come from and return to their Origin. The forms for moving life’s creating energy dissolve in the dissipation of energy.  Life’s creating energy itself does not dissipate, except in the form, resulting in the dissolution of the form.

However, we’ve been considering the transformation and transmutation of consciousness, along with the physical body, and not their dissolution—although that is what’s happening in the fallen state into which we’ve incarnated as spiritual beings, angels if you will. The warning by the Creator in the Beginning was and is “thou shalt surely die” if we continue to live our lives on the basis of our self-active mind’s judgments as to what it thinks is “good” and what is “evil.”

ASCENSION TAKES PRESSURE

There is another way our physical forms may go, and that’s up into the Light rather than down into the dust. That would require pressure.  That pressure is available within our living organism wherein spirit and flesh mingle to create a “Human Being.” Life’s energy, allowed to build rather than dissipate, would lift human consciousness to a new and higher level and shift the frequency of our physical forms to a higher vibration, where they would be completely impervious to all disease.

FROM CONSONANCE TO DISSONANCE TO CONSONANCE

So, how does all this play out in the evolution of my consciousness?  It plays out in how I conceptualize sensory perceptions in my consciousness and then neatly file them away into “good” and “bad” categories.  To help demonstrate, allow me to refer to my musical expertise.  

Music is generally a movement of sound-driven energy that alternates back and forth between dissonance and consonance.  There’s nothing “wrong” with dissonance in the musical composition as it is part of the movement of the music, which usually resolves into consonance. By the same token, there’s nothing more “right” about consonance.  One is simply the evolving or resolving phase of the other.  Now, we all love consonance, harmonious sounds of symphony.  It pleases us more, however, when consonance resolves out of dissonance.  Now, if we don’t like the dissonance and attempt to resolve it without any musical knowledge, we would likely create a noisome cacophony.  Listen to this recording of Sergej Rachmaninov’s  Vespers (All-Night Vigil) and experience what I’m talking about. 

(Move the red dot in the tracking bar to 23:50, and listen with your earphones at a moderate volume, as it will get louder at 25:00, then very quiet at 25:27. So, keep your finger on the volume control.)

RESOLVING DISSONANCE

I would now like to share some poignant words and profound insights of my spiritual mentor, Martin Exeter. He spoke these words some forty years ago.  However, as you will see, they are quite applicable to the present state of turbulence in our world.  (Read these excerpts when you have the time to be quiet and still.)

The state of affairs in the world might be described as an immense dissonance of raucous sound. How is this dissonance going to come to a point of consonance, harmonious consonance? How is it going to be resolved? The creative process in operation throughout the whole universe moves in cycles, in the overall sense in a creative spiral. It is an upward movement with which human beings are not particularly familiar because they have not for a long time been participating in it, but it is going on nevertheless. It moves in this spiral from a point of consonance into a state of dissonance and back to a state of consonance again at a higher level. This is the natural creative cycle; there is nothing wrong with it. In its relationship to human beings it was described long ago as the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Good and evil then were part of that original state—both are perfect. There is consonance and there is dissonance and they each have a part to play in the creative process. There is nothing wrong with the dissonance; there is nothing wrong with the consonance. There is nothing wrong with evil, there is nothing wrong with good, until human beings interfere with the process. Then things go very wrong in human experience, not that this interrupts the creative cycles of the universe particularly but it brings a good deal of tribulation and suffering upon the human race and upon many other forms of life which are part of the creative life cycle related to this earth.

So there has been a mess-up in this whole process because of the failure of human beings, so that they are now disassociated from the creative cycle. We could say, to illustrate something, that at the point of human failure there was a state of consonance. The state of consonance was properly to be followed by a state of dissonance in the true creative cycle, but certain ones distorted the state of dissonance in order to conform with their desires, desires which they presumed were good or would lead to more satisfying consonance. Unfortunately this was none of the business of human beings; they had no business interfering with what was happening. They were warned of what would occur if they insisted on this interference, and of course it did, because they did. And so since that point of consonance there has been a constantly increasing dissonance; the cycle has never been resolved. It may be seen that there were a number of points of hesitation in the dissonant pattern when it could have turned again into a cycle which would have led to consonance, but in each case human failure reoccurred and so the dissonance, or the disintegration in this case, continued.

Now if consonance is to come out of dissonance there must be present in the dissonance a starting point, a starting point which relates to the consonance that is later to appear as the dissonance is resolved. That starting point, in our present consideration of what is necessary on earth to emerge out of this unnatural cycle, is the presence of angels in human form on earth . . . .  This vast dissonance that is present on earth in the experience of all human beings can only be resolved on the basis of this starting point which I have mentioned, because this starting point is a point of consonance within the dissonance. As there is that point of consonance within the dissonance the positive quality of that point begins to draw into association with itself all the material that is necessary to permit a resolution to bring the whole unfolding cycle to the point of consonance which we have referred to as the point of restoration. . . .

What the angels are to do has been described in various ways but maybe we should look at it in the sense of our immediate fields of responsibility, because if we have been sent on earth as angels and we land up here, wherever here may be for the individual, that is the place we have been sent to; otherwise we wouldn’t be here. This is the place which makes possible the resolution from the worldly state of dissonance to a state of consonance. So there is something very special about the particular place where a person is now. There is a place where we always are. It relates to the present moment, doesn’t it? It always relates to the present circumstance and it will include other people who are in the vicinity, who are a part of our present circumstance—this is always so. . . .

Later in his message, Martin Exeter offered something more.

The changes that need to come are changes in consciousness. Did you ever try to change someone else’s consciousness? If I had been trying to do this over these years I would have been discouraged long ago. I have been offering services over a lengthy period of time, not to change anyone’s state of consciousness, because I can’t do that, but to offer the opportunity to those who would receive it to remember how to let their own consciousness change. And I have been very happy over the years in doing this to discover that my own consciousness changed.

That’s how it has worked for me. I’ll close with these words of Martin’s:

Now you can’t as a human being change your own consciousness. You wouldn’t know how to do it or what your consciousness should be after you had gotten it done. So that’s not the point. The point is that we have begun to discover and experience a new state of consciousness to the extent that we have been willing to accept a new quality of expression, not struggling to build some model state of spiritual consciousness that we had decided would be useful but in a very practical way letting our circumstances be used to provide us with the opportunity of giving expression to a quality of living that transcended what we knew before. We had to take responsibility for ourselves to do this, to recognize that whatever it was that was present with us exactly where we were was the facility by which we might let our state of consciousness change.

“Be Where You Are.” As always, I welcome your thoughts and comments. Until my next post, 

Be love. Be loved.

The Garden of Consciousness — “As Above So Below”

🎶 This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine . . . Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine. 🎶

Fig trees provide an archway in our back yard paradise

Co-creation At Home

The picture of our back yard above stands as a living example of how easily creation can unfold out of our consciousness where there is partnering with Nature.  Our yard didn’t always look so paradisal. It was totally destroyed back in 2005 when Hurricane Rita came through and uprooted our great sycamore tree and other trees in our back yard.  It was a surreal disaster.

At first, restoring our yard seemed an insurmountable task. Being a man and physician, I suggested we have a professional landscaper come in and “fix it.” Bonnie, on the other hand, wanted us to restore it ourselves, which we did—and it was fun doing it as we both loved working with the situation just as it was and expressing our creativity into it, which eventually transformed it into the garden spot it is today.  We did bring one of our sons, Leo, into the setting who contributed his carpentry skills into repairing the damage to our home—along with much-appreciated loving enfoldment and emotional support. Thank you again, Leo.

It took more time than a landscaper would likely have taken, but then we would have missed out on the joy of creating it together as ideas came to us, taking one task at a time. Realizing and implementing those ideas was a large part of the fun and joy. Then, watching Mother Nature take what we had accomplished and put Her finishing touches on it, we saw our yard grow and blossom as only She knows how. And now we have the pleasure of enjoying our little piece of paradise right here at home.

Here’s what our back yard looked like after the storm debris was cleared off.

 

 

 

 

 

And here’s our back yard today!

The Garden of Eden and The Garden of Paradise

I’ve been meditating on the biblical Garden of Eden, variously thought to have been located somewhere on earth. However, Eden may be considered more a heavenly garden than an earthly one; an internal garden rather than an external one. Paradise may be thought of as an external garden—an earthly paradise, which still exists in the pristine wilderness of this planet.

I’ve come to see the Garden of Eden as a Garden of Consciousness in which the seeds of Paradise are sown by the Creator.  Out of the Heaven of Divine Consciousness Paradise is born on Earth. We see it all around us in the God-made world of Mother Nature.

On the same basis, out of human consciousness is born the mind-made world of mankind into which we are born and live out our lives.  It’s simply the way creation works: from invisible heaven to visible earth. “As above so below.”

Our sun rises in the East as our planet rotates towards the future. It’s where the Garden of Eden is planted—by the LORD God.  I think this is important for us to understand.  Our today’s come prepared for us by the Lord: “This is the day which the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it.” 

We know that Man did not plant the Garden of Eden.  The LORD God planted this Garden.  Man was placed in the Garden of Eden to dress and keep it— not to seed it with his own ideas as to how the Earth should be created and utilized. The CREATING IDEA for the Earth is in the MIND of the Creator, planted in the Garden of Eden, in the sacred soil of Divine Consciousness, as seed for the creation of the Earth and for all the plants, creatures and critters that live on the earth. I see the earth as the Garden of Paradise, the physical manifestation of the Garden of Eden.

Original Man was the creation of Elohim, a council of Divine Beings, as we saw in an  earlier post.  Man, created male and female in the image and likeness of God, was endowed by the Creator with the privilege, and the responsibility, of participating with God in creation by dressing and keeping the Garden.

It would serve us well to remember what this privilege actually entails—and what it doesn’t.  To start with, it does not entail the right to plunder Paradise for our own self-serving pleasure and enrichment.  That is what caused the Fall, and what has maintained the separation of human consciousness from Divine Consciousness. What it does entail is aptly contained in words penned by Lloyd A. Meeker (Uranda): “Let love radiate without concern for results.”  In other words, I am responsible for maintaining an atmosphere of love in the Garden of Consciousness.

Spiritual Man was endowed with a consciousness of his own, which went with him when he left Eden and incarnated in physical man on earth—“fell into creation,” as one reader described it in a comment—and to this day he has cultivated it as a garden in which he plants his own seeds—the seeds of competition and discontent, of greed and envy, the seeds of war.  Basically the seeds that will bring forth the kind of world in which he wants to live with all the self-serving comforts and pleasures it can afford.  This world is not in harmony with the Natural world of Paradise, which the Creator maintains with minimal help from mankind.  It seems that man is determined to continue building his world on top of God’s world, slashing and burning it to make room to grow food for his belly, and drilling it to produce fuel for his machines. 

The usurper and self-appointed ruler of human consciousness is the self-active human mind, which has assumed its own identity, the “human ego,” which many an ambitious leader has inflated in order to exercise power and control over others and the world, especially the world of Nature, Gaia’s Paradise, the cornucopia of the resources for life on Earth.  Even now he is eyeing the pristine National Parks of America with intent to harvest their hidden treasures of oil and minerals, Gaia’s very blood and bones. He has no respect for the Earth, nor for life.

Do I paint a too painfully accurate picture?  And do you detect a righteous tone in my words?  Perhaps it is because I do have a bit of righteous anger in my heart, tempered only by compassion for the deceived masses of humanity, as I look at what has become of mankind on Earth, and what a miserable and desperate condition we’ve created in human consciousness, out of which only misery and desperation can be born.  I use the word “righteous” in its literal sense of “right-use-ness,” of which there’s been a gross lack.  Little wonder Man ejected himself from the Garden of Eden, out of God’s Heaven, and separated himself from Divine Consciousness by his commandeering of the Creating Process.  

And now we want to get back into Eden?  We can’t “get back” into Eden, at least not as we are in our fallen state of consciousness.  We have to welcome the Edenic state into our consciousness, then co-create Paradise out of that heaven.  Anything we might endeavor to do to create a Paradise on Earth is a waste of precious energy and resource without first letting Eden, Heaven, be restored to human consciousness.  The mind’s bright ideas haven’t worked in the past and there is no reason to think they will work now.  They only make living conditions on the planet worse. 

Mankind may be like Man, but mankind is not Man.  Original Man is a spiritual being made in the image and likeness of God, who is Spirit, presently and temporarily incarnate in human form.  What we call “mankind” is a substitute for Man, a temporary creation “formed” from the dust of the ground, nevertheless used by an all-wise and merciful God as a means of incarnating on Earth in order to steer the evolutionary process of Restoration.

This is what I see underway on Earth in our day—has  been since the Fall.  It has taken this long for the evolution of human consciousness to reach a level of transformation that is sufficiently enlightened to accommodate the conscious emergence and revelation of incarnate angelic hosts through the bodies of as many human beings as are willing and transmute them in an apocalypse of Light.

It has also taken this long—after at least two failed opportunities—for the vibratory conditions in the energetic field of our planet and solar system, as well as cosmic factors in our relation, for example, to the constellations of Orion and The Pleiades, and our position in the energy belts of our Milky Way Galaxy, for the Restoration to be at all possible.  We are here, along with countless heavenly hosts, to steward this process so that Man can be restored to God and return to the Garden of Eden, where we will co-create with God a Garden of Paradise for and on the New Earth. It is why we incarnated. We are the appointed ones to get the job done.

I sense that time is at hand.  As I sat out with Bonnie in our paradisal back yard this evening, I felt a powerful wave of peace move through my body, moving across the entire globe.  I feel it even now as I write. Something of cosmic proportion is happening in the solar system, in the earth and in the body of Humanity. A New Heaven is descending upon human consciousness—the Heaven of Divine Consciousness—and already sown in its fecund soil are the vibrational seeds that hold sacred the patterns of design and control for the New Earth, along with instructions on how we are to go about co-creating Paradise here on earth.

In order to make room for the “New Jerusalem” descending from God out of Heaven, we must unclutter our consciousness of all the accoutrements and pabulum of the mind-made world to prepare our hearts to receive it.  John the Beloved describes it as “the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God our of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.” In other words, as one who is loved with all of one’s heart, all of one’s mind, and all of one’s strength.

Shining the Light of Love

At the moment we are facing “darkness upon the face of the deep.” Just as darkness was upon the face of the deep in the Beginning, so is the New Earth emerging in a shroud of darkness. Darkness is the condition in which the seeds of change gestate and develop, out of sight and mental observation that typically leads to judgment and temptation to interfere.  I suspect that as the New Heaven gives birth to the New Earth, it will be unlike anything we’ve ever imagined or expected.  I pray we will not fall for the temptation to judge it as it evolves and interfere with the Creating Process, but let it be what it is and simply shine our “little light” into the darkness.  All creating cycles move toward oneness, from love—and already I see the Light of a New Dawn shining in the darkness; shining through emissaries of Light Divine throughout the world, angels coming forth in expression.

Let love radiate without concern for results.  As we are faithful to this one important and pivotal role, we can be assured that there will be results, and we will be surprised and greatly blessed, as will the Earth. 

Paradise, as I said, is still materializing on Earth. There are still parts of the planet that have not been consumed by man and left barren.  Therefore there is a harmonious chord of synergy between Heaven and Nature manifesting beauty and sustainability with which we may partner, synchronize our life styles, alter the course of devolution and extinction of our species, and halt the total destruction of Paradise.  As we attune to the harmonious music of Mother Nature and dance to her rhythms and seasons, She welcomes us back and gladly accommodates our metamorphosis and restoration to the Creator of the heavens and the earth.  She awaits our return, and the return of her Beloved Creator to her Garden.

We are not alone in the process of transformation.  The entire Universe is with us as we turn around—the literal meaning of repent-–from our downward spiral to a dying exit from this earthly plane and start our journey back to Eden and an upward spiral that takes us back Home by way of ascension. No one need suffer or perish. We are loved more than we will ever know by the One who desires nothing more than to come into His Garden here on Earth, filled with peace and the fine substance of love. Love for this One with our all, and love for one another as our Self, is the only true way our personal and collective garden of consciousness can be prepared to receive the New Heaven for the New Earth.

I welcome any thoughts you may have. Until we meet again on this blog,  

Be love. Be loved.

Getting Back to Eden, part 5: The Process of Transformation 2

 

Is it not written in your law, ‘I have said, “You are gods”?’  —Yeshua 

Paradigm shifts have occurred in our consciousness rather frequently over the course of the last several decades, and innovations have emerged in the ways we do things.  In the way we relate to God, for example, we’ve gone from church affiliation and attendance to spiritual transformation by way of “paths” to enlightenment and Self realization; from being mere humans to angels incarnate in bodies that are temples of a living God; from awareness as humans seeking an experience of God to that of God seeking a fuller experience of our humanity, as expressed in the saying “I am God being Human.”

In the field of healthcare, we’ve gone from the medical model of treating the symptoms of disease to the holistic model of treating the whole person and addressing the cause; from physical medicine to “energy medicine,” embracing esoteric energy healing modalities; from running costly and invasive diagnostic tests to honoring the body’s innate intelligence and wisdom by reading its energy fields and meridian circuits via muscle-testing for first hand information from the body itself about its condition and need for intervention and/or nutritional support; and from reactive passive healthcare to proactive preventive wellness care. We’ve even found a way via bio-energetic inquiry to discern and treat the cause of dis-ease at the emotional and subconscious levels with “Neuro-Linguistic Programing,” an approach too innovative and subtle for the reductionist “fix the problem from outside-in” mindset. Ultimately, we’ve dared to transplant organs from one body to another, even clone living forms via genetic engineering and test-tube creation.

In the tech world we’ve gone from naturally endowed intelligence to artificial intelligence; from building structures with bricks and mortar to constructing matter at the atomic level with nanotechnology; from assembly-line manual labor to robotics; from land lines to cell phones, from writing letters to sending emails, and now texts; and from attending seminars and conferences to teleconferencing in virtual “face time” space. We’ve gone from doing research in a library to “Googling” just about anything we want to know.

In science and physics we’ve seen leaps upward and out into the macrocosm of space and downward into the microcosm of quantum physics. We’ve “progressed” from mechanical and chemical engineering to genetic engineering of plants, foods, and, God help us, our own species.

In a word, we’ve evolved in our consciousness — and in our identity — as well as in our expression and functions, from being “creatures of circumstance” to creators; from being “mere humans” to becoming gods in our own right.

Transformation, the changing of the outer form of things, has been the main event of the last sixty years. And now with this coronavirus pandemic, social distancing has isolated us from one another—coupled by job and economic disruptions, world-wide social transformation is underway. The last 40 years of the 20th Century were particularly marked by transformation, preparing us for radical changes in the new millennium. The most important and pivotal transformation underway is a spiritual one, more like a transmutation of our identity from human to divine.

SIGNIFICANCE AND HISTORY OF THE NUMBER 40  

It seems the number 40 carries the energy of change in numerology.  A Facebook friend posted this recently: “The Latin root of the word ‘quarantine’ is ‘forty.’ The official lock-down started March 23 and will likely end May 1st. That is EXACTLY 40 days.” She cited biblical events, such as the 40 days Moses stayed on Mount Sinai to receive the Commandments and the 40 days of his wandering in the wilderness with the children of Israel; and Jesus fasting in the desert for 40 days.  The optimum number of weeks for human gestation is 40, and the rest period for a woman after giving birth is 40 days.  Essentially it is the time needed for preparing a person, or people, to make a fundamental change, to let go of things we no longer need to live fully and move forward into a new beginning in a New Earth. 

TRANSFORMATION

Richard Heinberg sheds light on the process of transformation in MEMORIES AND VISIONS OF PARADISE, characterizing the personal transformation of Jesus and the Buddha as “opening a door between worlds.”

The process of transformation need not be arduous. Indeed, in some respects it is more play than work — though not the competitive, win/lose play of civilized adults, but more the spontaneous, mutually trusting, experimental, and ecstatic play of young children and wild animals. As psychologist O. Fred Donaldson puts it, “Play is nature’s way of triumphing over culture.”  If Paradise is our natural state of being, then the deepest and most compelling force at the core of the collective unconscious is one that is always urging us toward that state of equilibrium. As we deliberately work toward a future characterized by respect and care for Nature and toward the nurturing of love, forgiveness, compassion, and celebration in ourselves and in one another, our conscious efforts resonate with the pattern at the core of our being. Heaven and Nature rush to return to a condition of balance and accord.

It is also true that as we move in the transformational process, we are working against social conditioning that continually tends to divide us both from one another and from the very ground of our own being. Hence, the need for the spiritual quest, which in all its guises is essentially a process of cutting through the crust of ego that prevents us from experiencing and revealing our own innate paradisal character.

This quest is neither new nor unprecedented. It is neither more nor less than the archetypal hero’s journey, identified by Joseph Campbell as being central to every mythic tradition. Every culture remembers exemplary men and women who have accomplished inter­nal transformations, and who have left instructions by which others can do the same. While the details of the instructions may differ, all spiritual exemplars agree on the broad outline of the process. It consists, first, of a withdrawal from the world-as-it-is, and a deliberate act of purification. This is followed by a period of integration within the system of universal spiritual values. The process culminates in a final realization of unity with the ultimate Principle of all that is. While the details of the process are individual, the essential outline of the journey is always the same, as is the goal: Paradise — the realization of oneness with Heaven and Nature.

The heroic quest is fundamentally a symbolic journey, representing the progressive unfoldment of the hero’s transcendent character and destiny. Jesus and the Buddha are figures who accomplished the profound inner transformation by which a door was opened between worlds, and human society was led to a partially or temporarily restored condition. Ultimately, the records of their lives are metaphors for what must occur in the experience of anyone who takes up the quest.

In every hero myth, the first stage in the journey consists simply of hearing and responding to a call. The hero or heroine must realize that the world is in need of healing, and that his or her own actions will make a difference to others. For the Buddha, the call came when he was thirty years of age and first saw sickness, old age, and death. He was so profoundly moved by the suffering he saw that he stole away from his sleeping wife and child to seek the key to liberation from the universal human condition. For Jesus, the first awareness of the call came when he was only twelve years old. He left his parents and spent three days in the temple among the doctors, discussing theology. When his worried parents finally found him, he said simply, “Wist ye not that I must be about my Father’s business?”

As we lift our attention above our conditioned wants and fears long enough to become aware of the purposes of a greater Whole, we suddenly see the possibility that our lives could have significance beyond comfort and self-satisfaction. The call may be faintly sensed, or it may blare. In either case, a conscious decision must be made to either listen or shut it out. To ignore the call is to die to the purposes of life. But to listen and to accept the challenge of the quest requires a willingness to leave behind the ruts established for us by heredity and environment, and to explore unfamiliar territory. We cannot enter Paradise without leaving behind our present cultural or psychic envi­ronment.

The second stage of the quest involves coming to terms with a dragon, demon, or enemy. Seeing suffering, we seek its cause, and causes of human suffering are legion. At the beginning of this stage we may see a dragon that is external to ourselves — an immediate source of injustice and cruelty. We may decide that the dragon is embodied in a philosophy we detest, or in a person whose actions seem to cause others pain. Many people become fixed in this phase of the quest and never proceed further. Their lives are spent battling the demons of the world, which, even when apparently slain, seem to grow new heads and return to torment them again.

As long as we continue battling external demons, we are incapable of fully bringing peace to our world. Eventually, if we remain true to the call — if we continue to listen — we will come to understand that the real dragon is within us: all the problems of our world have been produced by tendencies present in ourselves. Until and unless our internal dragons can be dealt with, even the most valorous external battle cannot fully bear fruit. Some of the great heroes in religious literature seem to have realized this from the beginning. Both Jesus and the Buddha, for example, knew from the outset that the victory they sought was a triumph over their own lower natures. Gandhi, on the other hand, began his career with the belief that the dragon consisted entirely of governmentally enforced racism; only gradually did he come to see his own attitudes and behavior as the battleground for the forces of good and evil.

Once the dragon is recognized as being an internal force, a different kind of battle begins. This stage of the process, in which the hero is wrestling with his own inner demons, doesn’t seem especially paradisal. It involves the exposure of one’s weaknesses and the surrender of personal attachments. Paradoxically, it seems, one can only get to Paradise by being willing to go through hell. But this conflict, too, must come to an end. The resolution of the battle with the inner demon is represented in the story of Jesus’ temptations in the wilderness. Before Jesus began his public ministry, and after he had fasted in the wilderness for forty days, the Devil appeared to him. The Devil first offered Jesus bread, symbolizing personal fulfillment at the physical level; then he challenged Jesus’ authority; and finally he offered the kingdoms of the world, “if thou will fall down and worship me.” But Jesus, refusing physical desire, the need to prove himself, and personal ambition as motives for his behavior, replied, “Get thee hence, Satan!” For him, the demon was gone.

A similar story of the Buddha says that while he was sitting under the Bodhi tree, immediately before attaining enlightenment, he was tempted by the god-demon Mara. Amid both violence and offers of pleasure and power, he simply sat and remained calm, “like a lion seated in the midst of oxen.” Mara and his armies, frustrated, left in defeat.

The dragon or demon can be fully tamed only through consistent inner work over a period of years. Yet, there is an instantaneous quality to the essential transformation that eventually comes: at any time a sudden change of state may occur and Paradise will be present, if only for a moment. The hero tames the dragon not by fighting it, but by refusing to fight it — by facing it, courageously holding steady, and expressing the character of innocence and love. Suddenly, the hero realizes that Paradise has been there all along, unnoticed.

Even after the hero has momentarily achieved paradisal awareness, he must still learn to sustain and communicate that state. From this point on, he is certain that he has known the true and natural condition of human consciousness — the pearl of great price, for which the wise person will sell everything (Matthew 13:46).

After having developed the ability to consistently maintain paradisal consciousness, the hero returns to the mundane world with a healing balm. Having found Heaven, he must share it — which means sharing himself, his state of being. For the individual, the return is the culmination of the journey, but the quest is not complete until the world has been restored.

Richard is interviewed briefly in Michael Moore’s recently released film PLANET OF THE HUMANS, an hour-and-forty-minute documentary update on the present state of our world and our ill-placed hope in biomass, wind turbans and solar panels — well worth your time watching.

Hello Octogenerians! 

On a more personal note, I will join the elder generation of octogenerians and complete my 80th trip around the sun on May 20, 2020. There’s got to be a few 40’s in those numbers, as I have certainly gone through many changes in those eighty years. I have been greatly blessed by many life-long friends and clients over the years.  I thank you for following my blogs and sharing them with your friends.  Feel free to share your thoughts by email. Until my next post,

Be love. Be loved
