The Silent World of Vibrations, page 4: Pleiades, Orion and the Ordinances of Heaven

Seven Sisters of the Pleiades

Who hath put wisdom in the inward parts, or who hath given understanding to the heart?” —Job 38:35

I’M GOING TO SWITCH GEARS and share an excerpt from SACRED ANATOMY, a book of reflections and meditations on the energy anatomy of the body as a temple of worship that I authored and published back in the late 1980’s and early 90’s. In this post I share a portion of the chapter featuring the pancreas as both an organ and a sacred seal for the release and expression of spiritual essences.

(But first I want to say how much I am enjoying being human. Being a man who enjoys watching a football game on TV while snacking on beer and pretzels just as much as I revel in a beautiful sunset. Just being human and enjoying the simple pleasures of life on this material plane and in this amazingly beautiful world of Nature. I will miss it and will be sure to reenlist for another tour of service to the One, hopefully in the New Earth.)

Our sacred energy anatomy communicates by way of silent vibrations. Our cells communicate via light signals, our endocrine glands via light-bearing hormonal crystals, our brains and nervous system via electrical impulses shooting across synapses.

As below so above: the stars and constellations in the heavens share energy, information and intelligence silently by means of plasma. Suns govern planets and planets their moons by way of silent magnetic fields. Light creates a cosmos in silence. Zodiac signs set the dominion of the seasonal ordinances of Mazzaroth in the Earth . . . without making a sound. In a word, we are afloat in a sea of silent energy and vibrations . . . silent, that is, to our ears.

From my book . . . .

The Capacity to Know and Express Spirit

   As I said, this sacred site provides us with the capacity for spiritual expression, an experience of Third Plane Being. From this plane our heart, with the guidance of our feeling realm, rises to give us the capacity to discern and process spiritual essences.  Here spiritual things are discerned spiritually. This includes the awareness of the presence of spirit, specifically one’s own Angelic Presence. The pneumaplasm generated at this sacred site is fine enough to rise up and begin providing a medium for the transmission of the radiant emanations of spirit from the Fourth Plane of being, where the One I Am stands in the midst of the Seven Golden Candlesticks. 

   Realization of the Presence of the One I Am is the gift of the angel of this church, and with realization comes assurance that I Am the angel incarnate, the One standing in the midst.   I Am the blessing being poured out through my window of heaven into the world.  Being still, I may come to know that I am an aspect of God.  Therefore all things necessary for my presence and service on Earth are provided by my Father in heaven whose unconditional and irresistible love draws forth the substance of the Great Mother of Creation to provide flesh and form for all that I shall ever need to live a creative and fruitful life.  All that is needed is already present with me now and will manifest as needed.

When I contemplate the form and function of the body temple and all its intricate and interacting parts, knowing that here before me and with me is a manifestation of the ordinances of heaven, of the very principles and laws that govern all of Creation, I begin to see and understand with the spiritual eyes of my heart replicating patterns of both structure and function reflecting off the calm and still waters of consciousness within and all around me in the larger whole. Wisdom fills the “inward parts” of my soul.

Balancing Sacred Energy

A beautiful example of this type of contemplative visioning can be known studying the manner in which energy is held in a state of balance by various mechanisms of checks and balances for efficient and effective creativity. We have just considered the balancing of energy harvested from the foods we take into our body-temple. All energies originate in one Source and are initially divided into the duality of the masculine and feminine. They all start out as sacred forces and work together creatively so long as they are balanced.

The balancing of sacred energy, both in the individual body-temple and in the collective body of mankind, is accomplished by bringing the masculine and feminine energies into a place of accord where they work together with the Spirit of Blessing.

The feminine energy is of the heart realm and brings a nurturing sweetness into the mix, along with deep feeling and emotional intensity. The masculine energy is more mental and brings such elements as logic and reason, along with mental calmness for clear thinking.

Imbalance occurs when either one of them becomes overly dominant and controlling. For example, should the masculine seek to dominate and control the feminine, who then withdraws her sweetness, the energy level quickly drops in a relationship. It drops in the individual, as well as in the collective body of mankind, by reason of the same dynamics at work between the masculine and the feminine energies.

As these two sacred energies are brought together in a state of balance and co-creativity, a tremendous blessing is poured out of heaven into the world. Perhaps we might glean more about this important area of human relations by going deeper in our consideration. There is a series of questions in the Biblical story of Job that just might take us there.

The sweet influences of the Pleiades and the bands of Orion.

In this ancient story, hundreds of years older than the Book of Genesis, as recorded in the Old Testament of the Bible, one of several compelling questions asked of Job by the Lord from out of a whirlwind was, “Canst thou bind the sweet influences of Pleiades, or loose the bands of Orion?” (Job 38:31)

Throughout their writings Lloyd A. Meeker (Uranda) and Lord Martin Exeter both place these two constellations in a vibratory context relative to our solar system.

The Creative Process works on the basis of creative triangles. The constellations of Orion and Pleiades in this context form a creative triangle with our Sun. Between these three points grid lines of cosmic forces are stretched and interconnected.

The Pleiades bring the influences of the Feminine vibration to bear in our solar system, and therefore in all of the natural world on this planet, including mankind. Orion brings to bear the influence of Masculine vibration.

The Feminine vibration creates the womb and atmosphere, the heaven, for the conception, gestation and nurturing of the things of Spirit in preparation for their birth into the world of form. The Masculine vibration creates the consciousness out of which the Creative Word is spoken and sent forth into the creative field—the earth—to draw creation into form. Both characterize the nature of God and Man and are essential to the proper unfoldment of the Creative Process through which creation is made manifest from out of the invisible heaven into the visible earth.

ORION

This representation of Orion and Pleiades as Masculine and Feminine vibrations respectively is also reflected in Greek and Roman mythologies at least a millennium or more later on in the history of man. For example, Pleiades, a winter constellation, in Greek mythology represented the seven daughters of Atlas and Pleione placed by Zeus among the stars, although only six can be seen—because one of them is “lost.” As the story is told in Roman mythology, Orion the hunter, also a winter constellation, abducted one of the sisters and made love to her. Orion was banished by the moon goddess, Diana, who was in love with him. He died accidentally when Scorpio, a summer constellation, bit him on one of his hunting expeditions during exile. Thus they are not present together in any night sky. Orion is accompanied by his hunting dogs, Canis Major and Canis Minor.

This all sounds very much like a modern day soap opera. The man is fleeing the wrath of his scorned lover, to whom he was unfaithful, with his canine best friends at his feet hunting for prey. Little has changed in the saga of male-female relationships over the millennia. As English playwright and poet William Congreve dramatized the saga: “Hell hath no fury like the wrath of a woman scorned.”

All of this adds to the historical evidence that these constellations represent the masculine and the feminine aspects of Man. These vibrations, of course, are operative in both sexes: the masculine being more dominant in men and the feminine more dominant in women—yet their roles are in some instances reversed.

These seven sisters of Pleiades may be seen as correlating with the seven glands of our endocrine system and the seven spirits before the throne of God as John of Revelation describes his vision of a “throne set in heaven.”

(This, of course, is the subject and theme of my book SACRED ANATOMY — where spirit and flesh dance in the fires of creation.)

The Ordinances of Heaven

   One of the meanings of the phrase “to bind” is “to unite or hold, as by a feeling of loyalty or love.” This shines a new light on the question the Lord asked of Job, “Canst thou bind the sweet influences of the Pleiades . . . ?”  Rather than the common meaning of bind, which implies to hold back and suppress—an attitude which the human male has historically held toward the feminine, both in himself and in women—the question could be interpreted as asking: “Can you, man, commit yourself to a state of union with woman?  Can you hold her response in a focused current of love?   Can you embrace the feminine vibration of the Pleiades, both in yourself and in woman, so as to hold it steady while you honor her with the release of your masculine vibration into her womb to fertilize the seed planted there by the Spirit of God?”  The question really relates to the business of stewarding the Creative Process by which the invisible is made visible, or as the Lord’s Prayer creatively commands, “Thy kingdom come, thy will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.”

This brings to light another question asked of Job: “Knowest thou the ordinances of heaven? Canst thou set the dominion thereof in the earth?” This can be seen as pertaining to the relationship between God and Man, men and women, between mind and heart, and between Man and Nature. The ordinances of heaven are established as seeds planted in the soil of human consciousness and brought forth in their seasons. Man was put in charge of stewarding this process for the entire Earth.

In what is called “organic gardening,” for instance, the gardener does not merely put the seeds in the soil and forget about them until harvest time. If he did, there would likely not be a harvest. As any truly dedicated organic gardener will tell you, there is a marriage that takes place between the tiller of the soil and the soil itself. There is a love affair here which calls forth every ounce of care and consideration in the gardener for each step and phase along the way of the creative process that brings forth—first the plants, which require a certain kind of care, and finally the vegetables or fruit, which require something entirely different in the way of care. The gardener literally woos the garden until she yields herself into the hands of her lover. If he gets impatient with the soil and starts stimulating it with commercial fertilizers, she knows it and will begin to withdraw her sweetness and her response.

This is reflected in the bitter taste of vegetables grown on plants whose root systems lacked the depth required to reach for the minerals in the soil, which give vegetables their sweetness. If he does not feed her rich organic matter, she will lose her fertility. If he hurts her with pesticides and harsh chemicals, she will give it back to him in her fruit. The garden and the soil are man’s best friends.

   The sweet influences of the divine feminine vibration of Mother Nature long to be taken in hand by the true husbandman who brings, through his gentle but sure hands, the vibration of love that is characteristic of the divine masculine.  His is truly the tender, sure, yet gentle, patient and loving touch.

(See page 2 for the rest of this consideration. I welcome any thoughts, insights and realizations you may have and wish to share about this post.)

Transmutation of the Elements of Matter, part 1

God is the Light of Mind. God’s thinking Mind is all there is. Mind is universal. Mind of God and Mind of man are ONE. —Walter Russell

* * *

NOTHING IS AS IT SEEMS—or so it seems. The world of form around us is said to be an illusion and that which appears solid is in a state of flux and constant motion. The very elements that comprise the material world from which our bodies arise are constantly undergoing transmutation. I had a visual experience of the liquid nature of the world many years ago as I was in a deep meditative trance during an attunement session. I went into an altered state of consciousness. When I opened my eyes and looked around the room, the carpet in the room appeared to be alive and crawling with ants, as were the walls and furniture. This alteration of consciousness lasted for only a few moments as I came out of my trance. Nothing is as it seems.

THIS ELECTRICAL WORLD OF EFFECTS

We do perceive our world to be solid and hard as we bump up against things. I’ve come to understand this to be nothing more than our body’s electrical charge being repelled by the negative electrical charge of the electrons spinning around inside the atoms that make up the molecular structure of the material world—or so the current scenario of the structure of the atom goes, a scenario that’s being challenged by scientists, including Dr. Walter Russell, whose revolutionary concepts of the the universe of matter have piqued the interests of leading-edge scientists and some of those thinkers involved in the science and consciousness movement. His published work has seamlessly interwoven science and spirituality. 

By negative I do not mean pessimistic or destructive. I’m referring to electrical positive charge and negative discharge, noting that this is a discharge of electrical current and not the neutral grounding principle of the electrical circuitry in the wiring of your house where a “hot wire” carrying a positive current of electricity discharges its power via a neutral “grounding” wire that, with the flip of a switch, lights up the room or powers a motor. That’s not an example of positive and negative electricity. That’s an example of a positive charge discharging its power into the neutral and receptive ground, as in the case of lightning and thunder bolts.

This is dramatically demonstrated—sometimes painfully and fatally so—when someone who is grounded grabs a “hot” wire with the palm of his hand, the positive side of the hand. The hand tightens around the wire and it is nearly impossible to pull it away. If, however, one brushes up against the hot wire with the back side of one’s hand, the negative side, the hand is repelled. The positive electrical charge is a magnet to the positive side of the hand and repels the negative side.

A WINDING AND UNWINDING UNIVERSE

According to Russell’s inspired vision of this electric universe, a negative charge repels both negative and positive charges, simply based on its unwinding centrifugal force of radiation outward from its vortex apex of positive magnetic centripetal contraction—the latter inhaling and compressing energy and the former exhaling and decompressing the energy of bifurcated Light. (See diagram above)

Undivided Light is the stable fulcrum of this energetic leveraging dynamic. It’s also the still and immovable point of control for this rhythmic heartbeat of the Cosmos. The Earth and all the planets are attracted to and repelled from the Sun simultaneously. Light is the still point of rest and origination for all of Creation.

The radiant magnetic presence of the sun is always available to the orbiting planets, whose lesser potentials attracts them to the greater potential of the sun even as their negatively charged bodies repel them from the sun, thereby keeping them in a creative proximity to the sun and to one another, and in a state of equilibrium. I suspect there’s a lot more science and physics at work involving the atmosphere, ionosphere and the Van Allan Radiation Belts of charged particles that shield the Earth from powerful solar winds.

In the Divine Design of Creation, the Light of Love shines radiantly into the darkness upon the face of the deep of space and shapes hallowed space . . . and continues to sanctify and reshape unhallowed space by means of Love’s purifying fire. Man’s role in this creative dynamic is to respond to the radiance of Love and to be drawn by its magnetic power to participate in Creation.

Let me share something with you that has enlightened my understanding of this illusory universe of matter—illusory only in that we cannot see the whole picture, which includes the invisible vibrational essences, with our physical and mental faculties. We can only discern them at the higher level of perception our hearts afford. Spiritual or vibrational things are spiritually or vibrationally discerned.

The mind’s netlike substance can only snare the larger thought patterns; the smaller essences slip right through its net. With the finer substance of our hearts we understand the fine essences of spirit. If we were to see the whole picture, we would see the continuum of differentiated energy and understand the vibratory nature of the material world. We would not then be fooled by the illusion of its seeming stability. Because it is in constant motion at the molecular level, it is quite susceptible to change—sudden change, as cataclysms, earthquakes, tornadoes and hurricanes demonstrate. As part of a vibrational continuum of consciousness—the heaven and the earth being one inseparable whole—a change in the upper realms affects change in the lower realms.

SEEING WITH THE HEART

Science and physics observe the Universe of matter using mental and physical modes of observation. They then draw conclusions based on what they observe in laboratories and develop theories about the construction of the physical world based on those very limited observations of appearances. After all, physics is a physical science, and scientific research is largely a mental exercise. What scientists and physicists cannot see and observe is the invisible vibrational reality behind the physical world of matter that gives it it’s properties and characteristics, along with its activities and movements—and how is all fits together into One Universal Whole.

That word alone (Uni-verse) means to turn as One around a stable fulcrum point of balancing Power which has position but no magnitude. Here in the Western hemisphere, we use the words God, the One and Creator or Great Spirit to speak of this unspeakable and ineffable nameless ONE. In Eastern religious sects, words such as Allah, Elohim, Yahwey, Purusha and a host of other names are used. Walter Russell uses the word “MIND” in his writings . . . and this brings me to something I wish to say about the human mind in the context of reading and studying the works of geniuses, such as Walter Russell was in his productive and creative life of service to the ONE.

The human mind is sometimes intimidated by complex intellectual considerations. Our minds are wonderful instruments for refocusing the Light of Truth that allows us to comprehend and navigate the many and various features and aspects of the physical material world of effects. Opened upwards, we are able to discern the invisible vibrational essences in the realm of Cause with the heart, for it is in our hearts, as we considered above, where spiritual and vibrational factors of Reality and Cause are understood. It has been demonstrated that there are a considerable number of “brain cells” in the physical heart. The popular saying “As a man thinketh in his heart so is he” speaks to this truth.

COMPREHENDING GENIUS

When I first opened Walter Russell’s book, THE UNIVERSAL ONE, several years ago, I was utterly at a loss mentally at comprehending what I was reading. I only started reading because of the headings of the chapters, which piqued my interest a great deal, for I have always been curious when it came to understanding what makes things what they are and by what force they are moved about. So I stayed with him “through thick and thin” as we say; through page after page and chapter after chapter. Suddenly, as if by some spontaneous shift in my faculty for understanding, I began reading his thought processes. I tapped into his mind, and I believe into the MIND of God, dare I say, whence Russell’s thoughts and words appeared to be arising and falling on the pages.

Once I began flowing with the current weaving through his uniquely poetic style of writing and expressing his understanding of the secrets of the Universe, I began to actually enjoy his writings. My next desire was to share some of his wisdom and insights with others through my blogs—which immediately presented a challenge. I suspect there are not very many of my followers who are interested in comprehending the secrets of the Universe, or the genius of Walter Russell . . . and I do appreciate that. Yet, I venture forward into the challenging endeavor of sharing what I find exciting and inspiring in this Universe of creating forces.

So I would encourage you to read the excerpts from Russell’s work more with your heart than with your mind in order to sense the current of his thinking. If you show interest in the topic, then you will begin to understand his thinking. Simply focus on the words and re-read challenging sentences. But also allow your heart to be involved in discerning his spirit and passion for revealing and sharing with his colleagues and the world what he has been allowed to “see” during his thirty-nine-day illumination period in 1921. His mind was a luciferous bearer of insight into the Reality behind the Universe during his creative life’s journey of 92 years (1871-1963). Of this I am convinced. So I will proceed with this introduction to a new series of blog posts under the heading “Transmutation of the Elements of Matter.”

WE APPEAR AND THEN WE DISAPPEAR

We appear at birth into this material world of elemental forms. During the first thirty-five or forty years we grow our physical bodies, educate our minds to function intelligently in this world, and ideally mature emotionally and spiritually in order to navigate the vibrational terrain of life. . . all of it the accomplishments of the achieving centripetal flow of positive masculine energy, the magnetic force that draws form together.

If and as we transcend physical reality to embrace the world of Spirit and live our creative lives of about forty or fifty years out of a spiritual consciousness and awareness of our divine identity and authentic Self, we bring forth the unique gifts of our life’s work. In the end of our life cycle, and by way of the expenditure of energy we put forth—a responsive function of our negative feminine energy—we dismantle our physical forms and then simply disappear back from whence we appeared. As Shakespeare put it in poetic verse: “Sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything.”

We refer to this end-phase of life as the “golden years” because the golden glow of youthful and childlike radiance returns with the centrifugal unwinding of our life energy as the light of the angel yet incarnate begins to shine through the thinning veil of the opaque heart and facial countenance.

I am reminded of two of my ageing attunement mentors. Dr. George Shears, whose countenance shown with light as his form seemingly faded thin weeks before making his transition and final transmutation back to pure spirit. It was a wonderful experience and privilege to abide in the shadow of his light during our almost daily attunement sessions while attending a three-month Art of Living class at Sunrise Ranch in Loveland, Colorado, where he lived out his final days of service here on Earth. Sometimes his hand rested on my chest as he fell asleep. I loved him very much, as I did his nephew, Dr. William Bahan, “Bill” as we called him, my professional mentor, whose personal field of radiance was at times a palpable hedge extending several feet around his body toward the latter days of his presence on earth, considerably dense as I approached to shake his hand on one occasion. I looked up into his welcoming and un-filtering eyes as I entered his protective hedge without resistance, as I know there was much in my personal field that yet needed purification and clarification.

The world of energy is fascinating but exacting to navigate. As the saying goes, “Fools rush in where angels fear to tread.” The terrain of the elemental earth is alive with movement. Men are wasteful in their ignorance of this as they impose their destructive machinery tearing into the mountains for minerals and the sacred earth for fuel. There is an easier and less destructive way that remains hidden from the eyes of the foolish. I will continue exploring this alchemical way of the Transmutation of the Elements of Matter in my next few posts. I welcome any thoughts and insights you may wish to share. Until my next post,

Be love. Be loved.

Equalizing Masculine/Feminine Power

Jesus said: When you give rise to that which is within you, what you have will save you. If you do not give rise to it, what you do not have will destroy you. The Gospel of Thomas

* * *

I WANT TO RETURN to a passage from my previous post which I excerpted from Walter Russell’s THE UNIVERSAL ONE: When the potentials of the opposites are too far removed from equality, then will union cease.” In this statement the converse is implied: When the potentials of the opposites are equal, then union is possible and compelling. I will endeavor to develop this further in this post. For context, I will excerpt some of the larger consideration in which this statement occurs:

Every action is male. Every reaction is female. Every action is electro-positive. Every reaction is electro-negative. Every action has its equal and opposite reaction.

Every action and every reaction is a tone in an octave of the universal constant of energy. Equal and opposite reactions, when united, comprise a unit of an octave of the universal constant of energy.

An action and its opposite reaction are not two. Their energies, when combined, make one. Reaction is born of action; and action is born out of reaction. All idea, and all forms of idea are the result of union between equal or unequal opposite actions and reactions of force.

Perfection of mating lies in the union of exactly equal and opposite male actions and female reactions. In perfection of union lies stability.

Imperfection of mating lies in the union of unequal and opposite male actions and female reactions. In imperfection of union lies instability.

Unequal actions and reactions will unite with unwillingness which increases in proportion to their degree of departure from exact equality in opposition.

When the potentials of the opposites are too far removed from equality, then will union cease. . . .

That which is true of chemical unions is true of all species of organic life.

Now, all of the above is about chemistry and organic life. There is another and higher level of life experience which we’ve come to call the spiritual life, and which I prefer to describe as the life of the spirit. This life is the life of angels incarnate in the realm of creation. We have our mates, but rarely do we incarnate together. As mates, we partner in manifesting the qualities of Heaven in our expression and co-creative activities on Earth.

The incarnate angelic spirits we are can live creatively in loving and fruitful relationships without being limited by so-called “human incompatibilities.” Angels love one another unconditionally, human foibles notwithstanding . . . and when we angels use our human hearts and capacities to express our love for one another and for our world, they are purified and sanctified in the fire of love. They also tend to enjoy health and happiness. The potential of positive preponderance for both men and women is thusly brought into a sustainable state of equality and balance, for Spirit is the Source of our power. We may at times give our power away or have it taken from us, but no one can take away our Source of power within, our God-given capacity to express the power of love.

When the potentials of the opposites are equal, then union is possible and sustainable.

To deepen this consideration, I would like to revisit a section of a blog post of November, 2018, Masculine-Feminine Energy, Part IV, making some revisions and adaptations for this consideration.

Energy Must Flow

Energy wants and needs to flow in order to create forms, illusions though they are said to be. Masculine and Feminine forces interacting with one another make possible the flow of creating energy. The creating energy that flows through their interactions is the creative power of Love manifesting the Ideas in the Mind of the Creator.  

When I speak of masculine and feminine, I do not equate these words with male and female, nor with men and women. As we know, these energies are at work in both men and women. The feminine energy is by design, and hormonal chemistry, more dominant in women, and the masculine energy more dominant in men. This is not always the case, but is generally so.  The ideal would seem to be a balance between these two creative forces in both men and women — something that I have personally worked at in myself over the past two or three decades. 

These two forces are not attracted toward one another in the same manner as is commonly thought. As Walter Russell elucidates, masculine energy spirals centripetally (inwardly) toward its apex, or vortex center, and is thus contractive and magnetic. Contrarily, feminine energy spirals centrifugally (outwardly) away from its apex and is thus expansive and radiative. One inhales while the other exhales in order to restart the inhaling cycle. As the positive masculine force winds inwardly toward its maximum potential charge, it discharges energy via a feminine emoting phase of expansion, much like a spring winding and unwinding. So, there is a continuum here at work, demonstrated in this graphic:

Russell’s primary point is a correction to the current scientific misunderstanding of the law of attraction. The way he sees this law working is a positive charge of lower potential is attracted to a positive charge of greater potential, and that a negative charge repels both positive and negative charges.

MALE AND FEMALE ATTRACTION

Males and females of the same species couple by reason of the law of attraction: positive attracts positive. This is contrary to the current misunderstanding that positive attracts negative, or that the negative female is attracted to the positive male; that men radiate (positive) and women respond (negative) to men; that women are therefore the “weaker” sex and men the “stronger;” that women are to be obedient and subservient to men. All these thwarted concepts and attitudes are the result of a fundamental misunderstanding and therefore misapplication of the law of attraction, not to mention mental fabrications of the patriarchal and dominating male of the species.

Men are attracted to women and women to men by reason of their positive charge. A lower potential seeks a higher potential and a higher potential attracts a lower. This is the law or attraction at work, whether between members of the opposite or the same sex. These raw energies are no respecter of persons, hormonal chemistry taken into consideration — and genitalia not withstanding. Genitals are male and female in their design and function for procreation.  Energy is masculine and feminine in its function and it needs to flow between these two forces. As someone simply voiced in a recent conversation around the subject of LGBT, the chemistry allows the energy to flow, and that’s a large part of what relationships are all about, isn’t it.

Masculine energy is the magnetic force of this universe of integrating matter, which increases in density as pressure and positive charge increases. Feminine energy is radiative and is the repellant, or separative, force of this universe of disintegrating matter. Where they meet in what Russell calls the “inertial” plane, these forces come into a state of balance, which he designates as a “bi-sexual” zone.

AS ABOVE SO BELOW. AS BELOW SO ABOVE

How things work in the “physical” world of effects mirrors exactly how things work in the “spiritual” or vibrational realm of cause. In the world we have created, what happens on earth is an exact mirror of what is happening in the heaven of human consciousness. As above so below. Because of human interference and manipulation, the harmony and beauty in the Heaven of Divine Consciousness are not reflected in the world that man has created and maintains. Where man has not manipulated the design for the Natural World, such harmony, beauty and balance are evident. We might say that Divine Masculine and Divine Feminine forces work together in perfect balance and harmony in the pristine world of Nature. This is not accurately reflected in our world where historically males lord it over females — a dynamic that is rapidly changing these days with the “rise of the feminine” currently underway.

Consider what is happening today in Iran, as well as in the United States, where theocracies and authoritative autocracies impose their controls over women. These forced fundamentalist and so-called “Christian morals” are not being tolerated by the youth in Iran nor by the women in America. The call-out for change is unquenchable, and the feminine energy being discharged and given rise to cannot be put back under containment or suppression. It will destroy the structure enforcing the power and control of the oppressive male over women.

BRAMA AND SHIVA—PARTNERS IN CREATION

The Masculine gathers the energy of the expelled and exhaustive Feminine force unto itself to empower his creativity. He contracts light energy into integrating form. He is Brahma, the Creator, in Hindu religious tradition, which holds to the belief that the universe is cyclically created and destroyed. 

The Feminine discharges the built-up potential of the Masculine in order to disintegrate structured form. She is Shiva, the destroyer, in Hindu religion. She destroys form in order to re-create new form. In this sense, she sees to it that the Creative Process continues to cycle. She does not settle for what the Masculine has created as “permanent” reality, but rather clears the creative field in order for new creations to come into being — sometimes in a fitful outburst of wrathful anger. So, she gives her responsive but charged energy to Brahma so as to foster the ongoing process of creation. Then there’s Vishnu whose role it is to maintain and preserve Brahma’s creations. Vishnu is the second Hindu deity who is both male and female. Perhaps he/she is who Man is designed and intended to be as Steward of the Garden and partners in creation.

THE “BATTLE OF THE SEXES”

These two forces are integrated in the Natural World and are beginning to be allowed to integrate more and more in human beings. The so called “battle of the sexes” describes the creative dynamic at play between these two forces in the Creating Universe. As I said above, Masculine and Feminine forces are raw energies that are no respecter of persons or gender. In the hands of the self-centered human ego, they are being used to enslave women and men and destroy life on Earth, all to enrich the few who endeavor to maintain power and control over the masses. Not for much longer, however.

A third force is needed in order to bridle in these raw forces. Left to their own, they take on the false identities of human nature, dividing men and women in a competitive struggle for power and control over life and the illusory world they create, including their offspring, played out in the legal battle for custody in divorce courts. So long as one force dominates, imbalance and imposition of one will over the other will continue to sow the seeds of conflict and war.  So, a third force is needed . . . and is rising today . . . to harness and balance these two forces.  

THE “LAW OF THREE”

Here is where Gurdjieff’s “Law of Three” comes into play, which states that when three forces come together, a fourth and totally different state is born of them.  That third force is the Truth of Love. Spirit. A spiritual force that originates from a higher level than that at which men and women presently conduct their waring affairs on the horizontal two-dimensional plane. The vertical component of Love transforms and levels the playing field, so-to-speak — the field that the poet Rumi speaks of: “Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing there is a field. I’ll meet you there. When the soul lies down in that grass the world is too full to talk about.” That field is the Consciousness of the New Heaven. When we meet in that field, a fourth and totally different state in possible: the New Earth.

This Spirit brings with it seven other spirits, or gifts, that are designed to help us meet the various needs and conditions that present themselves along life’s creating journey.  The late spiritual teacher Lloyd A. Meeker (Uranda) presented them as “Seven Steps to the Temple of Light.” There’s Patience, the first step toward enlightenment. Tranquility and single mindedness, the second step. The gift of Blessing is the third step. Can you imagine men and women being a blessing to one another, co-creators instead of competitors?  A fourth gift is Purification, the detoxification of our words and feelings toward one another; our selfish intentions and motivations, not to mention our lack of respect for one another. In a word, purification of our hearts: “Blessed are the pure of heart for they shall see God”. . . in one another.

The expression and application of these four gifts of Spirit bring about the assurance and confidence of authenticity, along with the fifth step of Radiance, and with it the joy of success and victory. The sixth gift of Spirit is Wisdom, Sophia, whose gift is the sense of what is fitting in our speech and actions with one another. At this level of creativity, Masculine and Feminine forces are brought into balance. Peace is known at a deep heart level, bringing with it the experience of oneness with the All, Love, the seventh gift of Spirit. Enlightenment dawns. These are the qualities and gifts of our Being, our true and divine Self. 

In conclusion, I will simply reiterate what I have stated above. Our true identity is not as men and women. Our true identity is as Human Beings. I am not only a man. I am a human being in a male form with both masculine and feminine creative energies at my command for creative work on Earth.  My origin and Home is Heaven.  I have come here from Heaven, as we all have, to bring Love into the world and to let the New Earth descend from out of the New Heaven. Let us be about our divine mission and purpose together as Human Beings, God incarnate and in action on Earth. In a word, as partners in creation.

I welcome any thoughts and inspirations. Until my next post,

Be love. Be loved.

Spirit of the New Earth: Sacred Alchemy of the Vesica Pisces

“I Have Found the One My Soul Loves” 

♦  ◊  ♦

imageTHE SCRIPTURAL QUOTE ABOVE is the fourth verse of the third book of the Song of Solomon, also known as the Song of Songs.  One can see this as finding one’s soul’s love embodied in a lover; also as finding one’s Beloved within one’s own heart. 

Lusting after union with the Divine via sacred sex has a rich as well as controversial history.  It has degenerated over the centuries to lusting after the pleasures of the flesh, particularly the female body which has been objectified in modern social entertainment and our commercial enterprises.  

The Roman Catholic Church has played a pivotal role in this degeneration, relegating sex outside of the “Sacrament of Holy Matrimony” to the performance of a sinful act, creating a controversy that has led to the persecution of women for their enjoyment of sex outside the arbitrary perimeter of “sex for the purpose of procreation.” It has also placed a burden on the shoulders of the faithful with its anti-birth-control decrees from the Vatican.

This is the current state of fallen human consciousness in the old heaven and old earth.  Notwithstanding, many couples have found the Beloved in one another and share a romantic love that draws them together in inseparable union with the Beloved and with one another, finding and experiencing their own Divine Self as one with the other, where in truth there is no “other.”  Such couples experience spiritual intimacy in physical intimacy.

THIS SERIES of posts features a meditation on the Spirit of the New Earth Vibration.  New earth throughout the Universe is born of the sacred union between the Divine Masculine and the Divine Feminine—masculine energy drawing form together and feminine energy giving form birth and nurturing it to maturity, then unraveling it and returning its essences back to the One from whom it arose—and it’s all one event, one process accomplished by way of a spectrum of vibrational frequencies of light and sound.  Here on Earth it is born through Human Beings—created male and female in the image and likeness of our Creator and sharing equally in power and dominion. 

(For an in-depth consideration of this creative relationship, I invite you to visit my blog series of October, 2018 entitled Our Masculine/Feminine Energy.) 

IN SACRED ANATOMY I explore the historical practice of Sacred Sex as it was once openly and ceremonially enacted and celebrated. I would acknowledge up front that human sexuality is shrouded by compulsions and beliefs of all kinds that have all but stripped away any sanctity it once possessed.  There was a time when all things were held sacred, not the least of which was our sexuality.  We appear to be returning to a level of consciousness we once knew, where we again see all things as one and connected to the Creator.  

Sex is the very nature of the Creative Process: Radiation — Response—Attraction—Union—Unified Radiation. It connects and engages the Creator with creation and integrates creation within itself.  The “Sex Principle” is operative throughout the Universe. It is what draws order out of chaos and continues to maintain creativity throughout the Cosmos.  It holds suns and their planets in spiraling patterns of perfect proximity in our galaxy and keeps atoms from splitting apart.  Sex is the “main event” throughout Creation, particularly evident in the seasonal output of pollen into the air and the juicy womb of Mother Nature herself out of which springs forth all the green foliage and fragrant flowers we enjoy throughout the year.  If there is anything life is, it’s sexual. Consider alone how much sex occupies human consciousness.  Life on planet Earth is about the creative dance between the Masculine and the Feminine who are made to be intimate and to move together to the music and rhythm of Life.  The following in an excerpt from the chapter on sacred sex. 

Vesica_piscis_circles.svg

The Vesica Pisces

The controversy and persecutions were over the alchemical power inherent in the tiny gland atop the gothic archway of the vulva, an archway that embodies the mystical Vesica Pisces, an image in sacred geometry formed by overlapping circles, possibly one of the most profound motifs of ancient and modern times. It represented in ancient religions, among other things, the vulva of the Great Mother and the joining of God and Goddess in the creation of the Universe.  In Christianity, it is the symbol of Jesus Christ which was used by the early Christians to mark their meeting places, referencing by its piscine shape the miracle of the loaves and fishes.  It represented a lot more than that, however.

Throughout earliest traditions, the Vesica Piscis represented the source of immense creative power and energy, a vibrational portal, if you will, between heaven and earth that makes possible the outpouring of love into the world, as well as a birth canal for all of Creation.  This same portal in sacred sex becomes the way into the presence of the Beloved, the “secret place of the Most High.”

This portal appears not only in the union between God and Goddess, the Divine Masculine and the Divine Feminine.  It also appears “in the midst” where two or more are gathered in the name—or shem in the Aramaic, meaning vibration—of love.  In meditation, where heart and mind play the roles of two gathered in love, it is the “window of heaven” at the Crown Chakra which opens with the alchemy produced by the Pituitary Gland and the Pineal Body as rising currents of the ascending flame of love, offered as incense upward, engage their hormonal chemistry. Through this portal of light streams the inspiration and revelation of divine wisdom into human consciousness.  As a geometrical design of the human eye, it represents the aperture for the “third eye.”  These are all internal workings of the spiritual anatomy of the body temple which are activated from within by one who possesses the knowledge of sacred alchemy. 

This knowledge was celebrated by the Knights Templar in a most clever and subliminal way by affixing a rosebud, symbolic of the clitoris, atop the Gothic arches of the Cathedrals they built for the Church in Europe.  Women were known to have a unique capacity to enjoy sex, which was part of the basis for men’s hatred and fear of them.  This tiny protuberance at the top of the arch of the vulva is the only human organ whose function, it seems, is solely to give pleasure.   

While the function of the clitoris, placed by perfect design in a spot where it might be stimulated during intercourse, may be seen as that of solely giving pleasure, it also serves as a neurological triggering mechanism for the entire process of alchemy which creates the substance of connection with the divine.  It is through the medium of this substance of pneumaplasm, as we have already considered, that the spiritual gifts of heaven are conveyed into the earth, such as the gift of healing and the gift of premonition and intuitive discernment of events before they happen.

The fleeting pleasure experienced in orgasm is a glandular one which can be easily aroused by physical stimulation.  The Dionysian ecstasy of fusion with the divine, however, entails more than mere physical stimulation of the genitalia.  Sacred alchemy is activated by ones who know the sacredness of their own body temples and have obtained intuitively through exploration the inherent priestly knowledge protected so occultly and diligently for the past two millennia, now resurfacing in human consciousness.  Such ones are themselves priests and priestesses of a High Order. They reveal themselves as lovers as they approach the altar of sacred sex with a deep and passionate love for the Beloved.  In sacred sex the priest and priestess truly represent God and Goddess in wedlock enjoying the fruits of their creation and reveling in the pleasure of ecstatic union their alchemy affords them. The Vesica Pisces, both as vibrational and physical aspects of our sacred anatomy, contracts and opens, quivering as the fire of love falls from heaven and pours out into their creative field, blessing and sanctifying all that is contained in their worlds. Yes, a woman’s sexuality is truly intended by her Creator to be ecstatically pleasurable—as is union with the Divine.   

It is not that men are not so equipped, as many have learned who have risen above the traditional rush to climax and explored the delicate glands around the base of the head of the penis, which, with gentle touch, or lying still during intercourse, occasions such alchemy within the male that leads to sexual ecstasy.  I am inclined to believe that the alchemy of ecstatic union with the Divine is entirely the domain of the feminine, even in the male who has enough feminine energy to produce such alchemy.

These two organ/glands, the glans clitoridis and the glans penis, are connected to the same Source of power, the Divine Feminine, that ultimately draws both the man and the woman into ecstatic union within the ascending flame arising out of the altar they have erected, either in solitude or in conjugal rapture.  These are altar pieces which are literally erected from within by aroused sexual energies that are no less sacred than the ceremonies intended to facilitate worship in a Basilica, nor than the One so worshiped. In the Motherland of Lemuria, they played an intricate and generative role in the Temple Service itself.

Clean Hands and Pure Heart

These verses from Psalm 24 say something about the qualifications for finding one’s own personal Holy Grail, as well as knowing whom the Grail serves:

The earth is the LORD’S, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein. For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods.

Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place?  He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully. . . .   

Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting portals; and the King of glory shall come in.  Who is this King of glory?  The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory.        

The Psalmist sings of the King energy as coming into the heart when the gates and portals of the heart are swung open. The secrets of the Holy Grail are revealed to one whose hands are clean and whose heart is pure.  Another way of saying this is one who’s mind meditates daily upon the spiritual laws of being and applies them in one’s living, and who’s heart is lifted up and open to the purifying currents of love pouring forth from out of Heaven. It is in this governance of spirit and openness to love, as poet and modern-day muse Diana Durham elaborates in splendid detail in The Return of King Arthur that the enlightened mind and purified heart, symbolized by the sword and the cup, find their resting place together in the Kingdom of Heaven restored, through these sacred vessels, to the kingdoms of this world. 

 Extending one’s hands in blessing to one’s fellow man and to one’s world cleanses the hands as well as the heart in the purifying currents of love.  In that mode of blessing, one is not inclined to lift up one’s soul unto vanity nor swear deceitfully.  One has one’s sight set on ascending the hill of the Lord and standing in His Holy Place. 

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

THE GREAT TREE (Re-posted)

As my soul moved upward, I realized that I could no longer hear the voice of the world, as all had become as silence.” — Miryam, from The Gospel of the Beloved Companion¹

(I am republishing this post as an expansion on the theme in my previous post relative to the instruction of the Master Jesus, as recorded in the Gospel of Thomas, that in order to find the Kingdom, one must “abstain from the world.”)

IN THE GOSPEL OF THE BELOVED COMPANION, Miryam (Mary Magdalene), in the mournful wake of their Master’s ignominious crucifixion and unexpected resurrection from the tomb, comforts a gathering of his disciples and shares with them what the author believes is one of the most profound teachings of this entire Gospel. 

Can one, in this noisy world, ever come to a place where one can no longer hear the voice of the world?  My short answer is “Yes.” The following is the longer answer: 

♦ ◊ ♦

Miryam:  MY MASTER SPOKE THUS TO ME.  HE SAID, “MIRYAM, BLESSED ARE YOU WHO CAME INTO BEING BEFORE COMING INTO BEING, AND WH0SE EYES ARE SET UPON THE KINGDOM, WHO FROM THE BEGINNING HAS UNDERSTOOD AND FOLLOWED MY TEACHINGS. ONLY FROM THE TRUTH I TELL YOU, THERE IS A GREAT TREE WITHIN YOU THAT DOES NOT CHANGE, SUMMER OR WINTER, AND ITS LEAVES DO NOT FALL. WHOSOEVER LISTENS TO MY WORDS AND ASCENDS TO ITS CROWN WILL NOT TASTE DEATH, BUT KNOW THE TRUTH OF ETERNAL LIFE.”

THEN HE SHOWED ME A VISI0N IN WHICH I SAW A GREAT TREE THAT SEEMED TO REACH UNTO THE HEAVENS, AND AS I SAW THESE THINGS, HE SAID, “THE ROOTS OF THIS TREE ARE IN THE EARTH, WHICH IS YOUR BODY. THE TRUNK EXTENDS UPWARD THROUGH THE FIVE REGIONS OF HUMANITY TO THE CROWN, WHICH IS THE KINGDOM OF THE SPIRIT. 

Jesus: “THERE ARE EIGHT BOUGHS UPON THIS TREE AND EACH BOUGH BEARS ITS OWN FRUIT, WHICH YOU MUST EAT IN ALL FULLNESS. AS THE FRUIT OF THE TREE IN THE GARDEN CAUSED ADAM AND CHAV’VAH TO FALL INTO DARKNESS, SO THIS FRUIT WILL GRANT TO YOU THE LIGHT OF THE SPIRIT THAT IS ETERNAL LIFE. BETWEEN EACH BOUGH IS A GATE AND A GUARDIAN WHO CHALLENGES THE UNWORTHY WHO TRY TO PASS.

“THE LEAVES AT THE BOTTOM OF THE TREE ARE THICK AND PLENTIFUL, S0 NO LIGHT PENETRATE5 TO ILLUMINATE THE WAY.  BUT FEAR NOT, FOR I AM THE WAY AND THE LIGHT, AND I TELL YOU THAT, AS ONE ASCENDS THE TREE, THE LEAVES THAT BLOCK ONE FROM THE LIGHT ARE FEWER, SO IT IS POSSIBLE TO SEE ALL MORE CLEARLY.  THOSE WHO SEEK TO ASCEND MUST FREE THEMSELVES OF THE WORLD. IF YOU DO NOT FREE YOURSELF FROM THE WORLD, YOU WILL DIE IN THE DARKNESS THAT IS THE ROOT OF THE TREE. BUT IF YOU FREE YOURSELF, YOU WILL RISE AND REACH THE LIGHT THAT IS ETERNAL LIFE.”

Miryam: AND AS HE SAID THESE THINGS, I FELT MY SOUL ASCEND AND SAW THE FIRST BOUGH THAT BEARS THE FRUIT OF LOVE AND COMPASSION, THE FOUNDATION OF ALL THINGS. AND I KNEW THAT BEFORE YOU CAN EAT OF THIS FRUIT AND GAIN ITS NOURISHMENT, YOU MUST BE FREE OF ALL JUDGMENT AND WRATH.  WHEN YOU HAVE FREED YOURSELF OF THESE BURDENS, YOU MUST EAT OF THE FRUIT AND SO GAIN THE LOVE AND COMPASSION THAT WILL ALLOW YOU TO PASS THE FIRST OF SEVEN GUARDIANS. AND I HEARD THE VOICE OF THE LORD OF WRATH CALLING TO ME, BUT I DENIED HIM AND HE HAD NO PART IN ME.  

 I SAW MY SOUL ASCENT AGAIN AND HE SHOWED ME THE SECOND GREAT BOUGH WEIGHED DOWN WITH THE FRUIT OF WISDOM AND UNDERSTANDING.  AND I SAW THAT BEFORE YOU CAN TASTE OF ITS BOUNTY, YOU MUST BE FREE OF ALL IGNORANCE AND INTOLERANCE. ONLY THEN CAN YOU EAT OF THE FRUIT AND SO PASS UPWARD UNHINDERED THROUGH THE SECOND OF THE SEVEN GATES.  AND I HEARD THE VOICE OF IGNORANCE CALL TO ME, BUT I KNEW HIM NOT, AND SO MY SOUL DID THUS UNCHALLENGED.  

THEN MY MASTER SHOWED ME THE THIRD GREAT BOUGH, WHICH BEARS THE FRUIT OF HONOR AND HUMILITY.  ONLY WHEN FREE OF ALL DUPLICITY AND ARROGANCE MAY YOU PARTAKE OF ITS NOURISHMENT.  AND ARROGANCE CALLED TO ME, SAYING, “YOU ARE NOT WORTHY, GO BACK.” BUT MY SOUL WAS DEAF TO HIM, AND SO MOVED ONWARD AND UPWARD INTO INCREASING LIGHT.

AND THEN THERE CAME THE FOURTH BOUGH, BLOSSOMING WITH THE FRUIT OF STRENGTH AND COURAGE. AND I HEARD HIM TELL ME THAT TO EAT OF THIS FRUIT, YOU MUST HAVE FREED YOURSELF FROM THE WEAKNESS OF THE FLESH AND CONFRONTED AND CONQUERED THE ILLUSION OF YOUR FEARS.  AND THE MASTER OF THE WORLD STOOD BEFORE ME AND CLAIMED ME AS HIS OWN. BUT I DENIED HIM AND HE HAD NO PART OF ME.

ONLY THEN, MY MASTER TOLD ME, WHEN YOU HAVE REJECTED THE DECEIVER, CAN YOU PASS THROUGH THE HARDEST GATE OF ALL, TO ATTAIN THE FIFTH BOUGH AND THE FRUIT OF CLARITY AND TRUTH. ONLY THEN WILL YOU KNOW THE CLARITY AND TRUTH OF YOUR SOUL AND, KNOWING YOURSELF FOR THE FIRST TIME, UNDERSTAND THAT YOU ARE A CHILD OF THE LIVING SPIRIT.  AND AS MY SOUL MOVED UPWARD, I REALIZED THAT I COULD NO LONCER HEAR THE VOICE OF THE WORLD, AS ALL HAD BECOME AS SILENCE.

THEN IN THE LIGHT ABOVE, I SAW THE SIXTH BOUGH, THE ONE THAT BORE THE FRUIT OF POWER AND HEALING.  MY MASTER TOLD ME THAT WHEN YOU TRULY HAVE EATEN OF THE FRUIT OF THE CLARITY AND TRUTH OF YOURSELF, THEN COULD YOU PARTAKE OF THE FRUIT OF POWER AND HEALINC; THE POWER TO HEAL YOUR OWN SOUL AND THEREBY MAKE IT READY TO ASCEND TO THE SEVENTH BOUGH, WHERE IT WILL BE FILLED BY THE FRUITS OF LIGHT AND GOODNESS.

AND I SAW MY S0UL, NOW FREE OF ALL DARKNESS, ASCEND AGAIN TO BE FILLED WITH THE LIGHT AND G00DNE55 THAT IS THE SPIRIT.  AND I WAS FILLED WITH A FIERCE JOY AS MY S0UL TURNED TO FIRE AND FLEW UPWARDS IN THE FLAMES FROM WHENCE MY MASTER SHOWED ME THE EIGHTH AND FINAL BOUGH, UPON WHICH BURNED THE FRUIT OF THE GRACE AND BEAUTY OF THE SPIRIT.

AND I FELT MY S0UL AND ALL THAT I COULD SEE DISSOLVE AND VANISH IN A BRILLIANT LIGHT IN A LIKENESS UNTO THE SUN. AND IN THE LIGHT, I BEHELD A WOMAN OF EXTRAORDINARY BEAUTY, CLOTHED IN GARMENTS OF BRILLIANT WHITE.  THE FIGURE EXTENDED ITS ARMS, AND I FELT MY SOUL DRAWN INTO ITS EMBRACE, AND IN THAT MOMENT I WAS FREE FROM THE WORLD, AND I REALIZED THAT THE FETTER OF FORGETFULNESS WAS TEMPORARY. FROM NOW ON, I SHALL REST THROUGH THE COURSE OF THE TIME OF THE AGE IN SILENCE. 

AND THEN, AS IF FROM A GREAT DISTANCE, I HEARD THE VOICE OF MY MASTER TELL ME, “MIRYAM, WHOM I HAVE CALLED THE MIGDALAH, NOW YOU HAVE SEEN THE ALL, AND HAVE KNOWN THE TRUTH OF YOURSELF, THE TRUTH THAT IS I AM.  NOW YOU HAVE BECOME THE COMPLETION OF COMPLETIONS,” AND THUS THE VISION ENDED.

 THIS IS WHAT MY MASTER HAS TOLD AND SHOWN ME.  AND ONLY FROM THE TRUTH I TELL YOU, THAT ALL THAT I HAVE REVEALED TO YOU IS TRUE.

WHEN THE MIGDALAH HAD TOLD OF ALL THAT YESHUA HAD SAID AND DONE, SHE FELL SILENT, SINCE IT WAS IN THAT SILENCE THAT YESHUA HAD SPOKEN WITH HER AND REVEALED THESE TRUTHS.

SEVEN STEPS TO THE TEMPLE OF LIGHT

Lloyd Arthur Meeker (Uranda) gave us Seven Steps to the Temple of Light.  They are Patience, Tranquility, Realization, Assurance, Radiance, Wisdom and Love.  He expands on their gifts and characteristics in a little booklet by the same name composed as a daily meditation and practice during a seven-day week for seven weeks, a meditative practice for anyone seeking a spiritual path to the realization of their own authentic Self in true identity.  (I have 3 copies I would love to give to someone.) 

As a synopsis: through Patience we let our life unfold naturally without trying to push the River, and we are content to let the evolution of physical forms take their own measured time.  This relaxed condition in our physical body fosters stillness and Tranquility in the mind, allowing for a sharp focus of singular direction and purposeful action with unwavering resolve and determination. This singleness of mind lends power to our outer actions that can easily bring about a Realization of our creative endeavors, as well as facilitate our soul’s ascent to the higher levels. 

The fourth step is Assurance and clarification of our heart substance that allow us to know for certain our angelic presence in the world.  Being aware of our divine nature and fixing our polarity in Spirit and its expression, the Radiance and vitality of Life shines through our outer being, bringing with it a sense of the fitness of things, the gift of Wisdom at the sixth level.  The seventh and final step is simply to enter our Temple of Light, and let our soul be taken up into oneness with and consummation by the Spirit, who dwells in the eighth level, the level of the silent octave.  Here we are invited and beckoned to abide for the remainder of our life’s earthly sojourn, letting love radiate without concern for results. 

While our souls ascend up into our temples of light by these seven steps to meet and fuse with the Holy Spirit at the Crown above—which is the Divine Feminine, Mother God—our angelic being incarnates and descends from above into radiant expression of Light Divine, which is the Divine Masculine, Father God, facilitated by the seven sacred energy-transforming centers of our endocrine system. These endocrine glands provide high-frequency alchemical steps for descending energetically out of the invisible realm of Heaven and into the lower-frequency visible and material realm of Earth.  This defines our whole purpose for leaving the realms of Light and incarnating into the darker realms of physical life: to enlighten the world with our love and assist in bringing forth creation out of the darkness of the womb and into the light of a new day—judgement, shame and accusation notwithstanding.  

The Master Jesus reminded us of this purpose when he said “Let your light so shine that men may see your good works and glorify your Father which is in Heaven.” Let the will of the One in Heaven be done on Earth.  With this command, I leave you to meditate upon Miryam’s account of her encounter with “Jeshua” and the ascent of her soul to the crown of the Great Tree where it was consumed by the fire of the Holy Spirit of Love.  I welcome any thoughts you may wish to share. Until my next post,

Be love. Be loved.

WHEN THE MIGDALAH HAD TOLD OF ALL THAT YESHUA HAD SAID AND DONE, SHE FELL SILENT, SINCE IT WAS IN THAT SILENCE THAT YESHUA HAD SPOKEN WITH HER AND REVEALED THESE TRUTHS.

This account of Mary Magdalene’s all-consuming ascent up to the crown of this “Great Tree” isn’t the only time in the scriptures where a feminine entity is mentioned in an ecstatic vision or encounter with the Spirit.  John in Revelation (12:1-4) describes a vision he was given of a woman in heaven: 

And there appeared a great wonder in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.  And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. . . .  And the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born. . . .” 

Shortly after this, the dragon and “accuser of our brethren” is cast out of heaven and down to the earth having “great wrath” knowing that he “hath but a short time to live.”  The woman fled to the wilderness where she gave birth to her “man child” which was “caught up unto God.” This entire chapter is filled with metaphors and prophecy, a thrill of the spirit to read.

This child is the Christ Spirit of Love, which the dragon of the human mind out from under the dominion of God ever seeks to negate and prevent from being born through the hearts of men and women, knowing that love casts out fear, the means of controlling the masses. Fearless children are not so inhibited by shame and judgment, but let their lights shine openly, and without being told or taught, showing that the joyful expression of the spirit of love—of kindness, of joy and generosity—are natural to us all.

The Master Jesus reminded us of this purpose when he said “Let your light so shine that men may see your good works and glorify your Father which is in Heaven.” Let the will of the One in Heaven be done on Earth.  With this command, I leave you to meditate upon Miryam’s account of her encounter with “Jeshua” and the ascent of her soul to the crown of the Great Tree where it was consumed by the fire of the Spirit of Love. 

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

Be love. Be loved.

Spirit of the New Earth, pg 10: Holy Mother Earth

“I was with you in the beginning, in the dawn of all that is holy, I bore you from the womb before the start of day.”

I will return to my consideration of the Vesica Pisces with my final post of this series next weekend.  Being Mothers Day, I will share this excerpt from SACRED ANATOMY featuring feminine deities in celebration of the return of the Divine Feminine to her rightful place alongside the Divine Masculine, co-creating life forms in the Garden of Paradise here on Mother Earth.

It is a peculiar aberration in human consciousness that has allowed women the world around, the very mothers of humanity without whom men could not even exist, to be minimalized and subjected to all sorts of abuse by the male of our species.  It hasn’t always been so.  Mother God has been very present to her living forms on Earth all down through the ages, albeit having to wait in the wings for her day to emerge and make her presence felt.  That day has come, and she will not be hushed or barred from full and equal participation in life with men.  Here is a bit of her history as a goddess in the world.

FEMININE DEITIES

We have meditated primarily on the biblical texts of John of Revelation, but there have also been visions of feminine deities. Saint Hildegard of Bingen (1098-1179) also had an appreciation for the sacred nature of sex.  Anglo-Saxon writers A. T. Mann and Jane Lyle in their book Sacred Sexuality, published in 1995, describe a vision that Hildegard has during deep contemplation.  It was of a young girl who was like a goddess and whose radiance surpassed anything she had ever beheld. It was so dazzling that she could not look upon her.  Wearing a brilliant white cloak and gold shoes, she held the sun and moon in her right hand with loving care and bore the deep-blue image of a man on an ivory tablet on her breast.   Known to all of creation as “sovereign lady,” she spoke these words to the image on her breast: “I was with you in the beginning, in the dawn of all that is holy, I bore you from the womb before the start of day.”  Her name was Love.

Hildegard believed the whole earth could be made into a garden of love if men and women simply loved one another, thereby becoming divine themselves.  There would be nothing lacking in this love, for it would shine forth as a unified field of light as a result of complete union of both body and soul with God.   (The Templar Revelation, p. 162)

John of Revelation also had a vision of a feminine being in the heaven. 

And there appeared a great wonder in heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered….“ (Rev 12)

There were other aspects of the vision that carry significance of their own.  There was the “great red dragon” which stood before the woman ready to devour her child as soon as it was born.  Then something remarkable happened when she brought forth her child, which was a man child who “was to rule all nations with a rod of iron….”  The child was “caught up unto God, and to his throne.”

In this metaphorical story I see the Divine Feminine travailing to give birth to the positive expression of Her own divinity on earth but forced to deliver it in the privacy and solitude of her own sacred space, knowing that it is acceptable in God’s heaven if not in man’s world.   This could be said of the full spectrum of her expression, spiritual, mental, emotional and sexual. So she has kept it all safe from the great red dragon—which could represent here the male-dominated world in which she lives her life, in quiet desperation much of the time.    As for me, I personally rejoice that the feminine has survived all that has been levied against her in the way of persecution and oppression on earth, and is yet available to the masculine that is beginning to understand her, for I love the feminine and all that she brings to the dance of life.

It is undeniably the feminine that has been responsible for holding something special over thousands of years with regard to the sacredness of her sexuality.   It is the male who has historically exploited her sexuality and raped her body and soul, along with the larger body of the Earth Goddess Gaia.  Now that many women have risen up and taken back their power and restored their personal sanctity and collective equality and autonomy as people in a patriarchal society, a major shift has occurred in the collective consciousness.  With career and temporal status still in focus for a majority of women, there is currently hardly anyone managing the home-fires and providing the space for family and intimacy. Thankfully, thousands are rediscovering both their sexuality and their nurturing capacity as being sacred and many strong and enlightened women are leading the way for both sexes in this exponentially expanding field of human endeavor to transcend tradition and live outside the box of what society expects of them.

Contemporary psychologist and teacher of advanced practices of sacred sexuality around the world, Margo Anand, comes to mind.  Author of the bestseller, The Art of Sexual Ecstasy and a tape series on the path to sexual bliss, The Art of Sexual Magic, has brought back the true context of sex as “the most sacred act of creation.”  She writes: 

When two humans come together as lovers, they mirror the divine union…and connect directly with the energy of all life.  Thus, the energy of your sexuality is the source of the greatest ‘magic’ of all—the creation of life itself.

In her book she explores the meaning of Tantra, which means weaving, as a Hindu-Buddhist practice. 

As the threads of life and love cross one another, Tantra teaches, they join in cosmic union. Within this absolute connection with the universe, your most profound yearnings become possible. This is sexual magic.  Using erotic rituals and specific meditations, Tantric lovers can alter their consciousness and channel the energy of orgasm for healing, ecstasy—even enlightenment.

One of the most powerful and prolific voices among contemporary women authors, earth-activist Starhawk, puts these words on the lips of Mother Nature, who is embodied in the Goddess Gaia, in Doreen Valiente’s poem Charge of the Star Goddess, which she adapted for use in her own work of summoning forth and quickening woman’s spirit:

Let My worship be in the heart that rejoices, for behold—all acts of love and pleasure are My rituals….  I have been with you from the beginning, and I am that which is attained at the end of desire.

Feminine deities have historically held sex as a sacred ritual. In the East, the Indian Tantra and the Chinese Taoism are the only two disciplines that hold sexuality as something sacred and transcendental. Here in the West, there has been a re-discovery of sacred sex. Sex is seen now by increasing numbers of spiritually awake men and women as the highest form of union with God at the physical level, a virtual erotic bridge between heaven and earth bringing a release of enormous creative energy, revitalizing lovers in unique ways, all the way down to their cells.    

The entire art of sexual expression as a centerpiece in life is out of the closet and being explored with enthusiasm by people of all ages.  We all knew there was more to it than our forebears told us, but this allowed us to stumble into one of life’s most intriguing and most misunderstood secrets.  Increasingly the spiritual aspects of sexuality are being put ahead of the physical act of “making out” and “getting some.”  Sex is being elevated to the level of a sacred art of union with the divine and has become so much more enjoyable.  Shame around this natural function is eroding.  A picture of the little Buddha with a big smile on his face and hands reaching inside his gown and down grasping “nirvana” comes to mind as I write.  Indeed, can we not reach down and lift up unto heaven the earth of our temples with all of its sacred anatomy and physiology in sheer celebration of life and in delightful praise of our Creator?   Through such upliftment, would not the flesh be renewed by the Spirit of the New Earth?  ♥

I will complete this series on the Spirit of the New Earth Vibration with the next post. Until then, I wish all mothers a most Happy Mothers Day.  You’ve earned it.  Blessings upon you all.    — Anthony

Spirit of the New Earth Vibration, pg 11: Divine Alchemy

I am the Spirit of the New Earth

I welcome the substance by which I create all things new

in patience and right expectancy

I am the spirit of love

The vibrational tone of the Spirit of the New Earth is a low frequency in the red zone of the rainbow spectrum of Love’s White Light as it moves through the Gonadal seal of the seven endocrine glands.  The radiation of Love at this base level moves earth substance with the currents of masculine/feminine energy working as one creating force to bring forth new life forms.  

The Creative Process had already moved down through all six levels above, beginning in the Pineal Gland where the violet frequency of Love moves down into the Pituitary Gland and, stepped down to the blue vibration of the Spirit of the Womb or Truth, conceives the seed of Life which is then nurtured by the masculine/feminine parental hormonal energies provided by the anterior and posterior lobes of this Mother Gland. 

Life is thus born of the union of Love and Truth in and through the Thyroid gland that proceeds to give vitality to the body cells, and the parathyroid glands that metabolize calcium for bone building and strengthening. 

The vibration of Love is further stepped down to provide a purifying fire in the Thymus gland, the heart of the immune system, and through it in immune cells distributed throughout the body temple.  The Vibration of Love is stepped down further as the River of Life descends the steps of the temple to the level of the Pancreas and the Islets of Langerhans, where the vibration of Blessing is focused and sent forth through joyful currents of emotional energy. 

From this level, the current of Love steps down one more level to empower the Adrenal glands and fill the temple with the Light of the Spirit of the Single Eye, bringing the mind to a sharp focus for the shining of the Light of Truth into the world.  The final step is down into the realm of creative activity, the domain of the Spirit of the New Earth, where new life is born through the Womb of the Great Mother, portrayed here by the graphic of the Vesica Pisces. 

The Vesica Pisces

THE TWO CIRCLES forming the Vesica Pisces can also be seen to represent the inner world of spirit and Divine consciousness and the outer world of form and human consciousness. These two worlds, or realms, are connected in human consciousness where they overlap, the one being the realm of darkness and void and the other being the realm of light and manifest form.  In other words, the realm of creator and the realm of creation, which are inseparably one.

Diana Durham writes: “Thus the vesica symbolizes both the deep feminine, the source of creation, and the place of connection between spirit and form, heaven and earth.” Durham continues:

What other symbol has such connotations?  The Grail chalice itself: the feminine form and vessel of the chalice or cup, whose shape clearly echoes that of the womb and whose appearance in the Grail Castle signifies the beginning connection with the Grail King energy of the inner realms. . . .

The womb contains both menstrual blood or the newly forming baby.  Both blood and baby are symbols of life. . . .  The cup of the Eucharist holds wine, the symbol of Christ’s blood and a symbol of life.  So something is held in, or issues out of, the Grail that is life-giving. . . .

Perhaps the most central meaning of both aspects of the Grail is given here in this beautiful and simple passage from the Psalm 23: “Thou preparest a table before me in the presence of mine enemies; thou anointest my head with oil; my cup runneth over.”  The heart is full to overflowing with the presence of love, irrespective of outer circumstance—“in the presence of mine enemies.” The heart that is open to the presence of the heavenly king energy, in other words the experience of union—connection—with the divine source: this is what finding the Grail symbolizes in the Grail quest.  The container is the heart, and that which is contained within it, the life-giving substance, is the substance of love.

If the two circles of the vesica pisces symbol represents the inner and outer, the spiritual and material worlds, and the vesica shape is the place where the two connect, then finding the Grail also means to find the place of connection between these two worlds and to let them be joined instead of separated.  This place of connection symbolizes the purified heart realm. (The Return of King Arthur, pp .67-69)

Sharing in Sacred Sex, two lovers are connected with the sovereign energy of the King and Queen bringing with it the experience of ecstatic union with the Divine.  In order to enter this state, both must be conversant with the secrets of sacred alchemy . . . that, when allowed to work in their lives and in their “lovemaking,” bring a natural awareness of design and control inherent in the truth of sacred sex. 

That control is found to work particularly within the male who withholds his ejaculation so as to provide a radiant positive pole in his erection for the negative response of his receptive female partner as she opens her vesica to receive his love.  They must also be open in their hearts to love and be willing to go through a process of purification, for it is through the heart that one accesses the secrets of the sacred alchemy of the “deep feminine.”  

For that alchemy to be actualized there needs to be an arc of love between the two lovers. With the charge produced by this arc, the One Law we considered earlier in our meditation on the Pituitary Gland and the Creative Process (positive action—negative response—attraction—union—unified radiation), which is the power that creates and renews the world, is engaged.  

(In order to fully grasp and appreciate this symbolism, it would be most helpful and really necessary to read Diana’s book in its entirety.  In her chapter “The Dance” she shows in a most wonderful and understandable way how the dance between the masculine and the feminine works to create the arc of creative juice that renews the world.)

Divine Alchemy

Constraints imposed by the Church in the early centuries of the Christian Era, pushed the practice of alchemy underground.  The erotic roots of alchemy have apparently been shrouded by the pseudo-alchemical process of changing baser metals into gold, which was employed as a smoke screen to keep the real ritual of alchemy occult. The true alchemy occurred during sacred sex and was of divine origin, its purpose being to transmute human flesh, symbolized by lower metals, into the substance of love, symbolized by gold, thereby spiritualizing flesh.  An ancient rite of the anointing of the “sacred king” was based on the idea that the true priest or king received his divine power through the high priestess, without whom he was nothing.

Alchemy can be found in Egyptian religious practices as far back as the early centuries of the Christian Era and this knowledge was procured by the goddess Isis herself, who, according to the story in one treatise, “obtained the secrets of alchemy from an ‘angel and prophet’ through her feminine wiles.” (The Templar Revelation, Chapter 7, “Sex: The Ultimate Sacrament”)

Here in the West, outside of the intimate worlds of individual couples who have explored this “taboo,” we do not share  a consciousness of the sacred in our sexuality, much less a common knowledge of the alchemy produced through sacred sex.  It certainly is not included in our religious upbringing as a sacred part of us, much less a sacred ritual.  It is rather looked upon with much shame and guilt.  The authors of The Templar Revelation point out that this ritual was more about a couple becoming gods than about erotic sex.  First the high priestess becomes the goddess and then endows the man with divinity through the alchemy of her sexuality.  Through their union, their shared world was infused with “a regenerative balm,” as were they. . . .  The priestess’ body became a virtual “gateway to the gods” as the goddess/priestess united with the god/priest in a marriage rite that served the purpose of procreation as well as a way by which she bestowed wisdom on man.  The anointing of Jesus by Mary of Bethany, who was a priestess, was such a pagan ritual.     (Ibid, pp. 257-258)

Jesus is usually thought of in Christendom as having been celibate, and there seem to be as many arguments that support this idea as there are that prove its fallacy.   Without entering into the debate, I would simply suggest that Jesus had a sweetheart, and she was Mary of Bethany, which Picknett and Prince believe is one and the same as Mary Magdalene.

According to Elaine Pagels, author of The Gnostic Gospels. . . , while the other disciples despised her for her intimate relationship with the Master, Jesus honored Mary of Bethany with the title of “Apostle of Apostles.”  One text says “she spoke as a woman who knew the All.” She was raised by the Master above all the other disciples and declared by him to be the futuristic ruler of the “Kingdom of Light.”   He also called her “Mary Lucifer” and “Mary the Light-bringer.” As the texts portray the relationship between Jesus and Mary, he so loved her that there was nothing he could refuse her, including her request to raise up her brother Lazarus from the dead, which he did strictly out of love for her. This respectful treatment of her and loving regard by Jesus was not a small thing as it emphasized a basic shift needed at a core level of human consciousness during a period of history when women were still looked down upon as not being worthy even of life.

With this account of the quality of substance between them, the marriage feast at Cana could well have been their own wedding feast.  I have no problem with that, and there is ample evidence to support this scenario.   Why would the Master Jesus have circumvented this pivotal and most powerful aspect of our humanity whereby we experience the pleasure of union with our Creator and with one another in the physical plane of Being ?

The piece I wish to articulate here relates to the fact that this area of sexual function has long been hidden in the dark corners of human consciousness amid the rubble of the ancient residue of past failures on the part of Man, male and female, to come clean before the Lord of Creation, naked and unashamed of who we are.  Sexuality’s redemption and return to sanctity seems long overdue and, in the experience of many, is well underway. ♦                                              _____________________________________________________________________________

Spirit of the New Earth Vibration, pg 9: Sacred Alchemy & the Vesica Pisces

“I Have Found the One My Soul Loves” 

THE SCRIPTURAL QUOTE above is the fourth verse of the third book of the Song of Solomon, also known as the Song of Songs.  One can see this as finding one’s soul’s love embodied in a lover; also as finding one’s Beloved within one’s own heart.  Lusting after union with the Divine via sacred sex has a rich as well as controversial history.  It has degenerated over the centuries to lusting after the pleasures of the flesh, particularly the female body which has been objectified in our modern social entertainment and our commercial enterprises.  

Religion has played a pivotal role in this degeneration, relegating sex outside of the “Sacrament of Holy Matrimony” to the performance of a sinful act, creating a controversy that has led to the persecution of women for their enjoyment of sex outside the arbitrary perimeter of “sex for the purpose of procreation.” 

This is the current state of fallen human consciousness in the old heaven and old earth.  Notwithstanding, many couples have found the Beloved in one another and share a romantic love that draws them together in inseparable union with the Beloved and with one another, finding and experiencing their own Divine Self as one with the other, where in truth there is no “other.”  Such couples experience spiritual intimacy before physical intimacy.

THIS SERIES of posts features a meditation on the Spirit of the New Earth Vibration.  New earth throughout the Universe is born of the sacred intercourse and union between the Divine Masculine and the Divine Feminine—masculine energy drawing form together and feminine energy giving form birth and nurturing it to maturity, then unraveling it and returning its essences back to the One from whom it arose—and it’s all one entity, one process accomplished by way of a spectrum of vibrational frequencies of light and sound.  

(For an in-depth consideration of this creative relationship, I invite you to visit my blog series of October, 2018 entitled Our Masculine/Feminine Energy.) 

In my book SACRED ANATOMY I explore and meditate upon the historical experience of Sacred Sex as it was once openly and ceremonially practiced.  The following in an excerpt from the chapter on Sacred Sex.

The Vesica Pisces

The controversy and persecutions were over the alchemical power inherent in the tiny gland at the top of the gothic archway of the vulva, an archway that embodies the mystical Vesica Pisces, an image in sacred geometry formed by overlapping circles, possibly one of the most profound motifs of ancient and modern times. It represented in ancient religions, among other things, the vulva of the Great Mother and the joining of God and Goddess in the creation of the Universe.  In Christianity, it is the symbol of Jesus Christ which was used by the early Christians to mark their meeting places, referencing by its piscine shape the miracle of the loaves and fishes.  It represented a lot more than that, however.

Throughout earliest traditions, the Vesica Piscis represented the source of immense creative power and energy, a vibrational portal, if you will, between heaven and earth that makes possible the outpouring of love into the world as well as a birth canal for all of Creation.  This same portal in sacred sex becomes the way into the presence of the Beloved, the “secret place of the Most High.”

This portal appears not only in the union between God and Goddess, the Divine Masculine and the Divine Feminine.  It also appears “in the midst” where any two or more are gathered in the name—or shem in the Aramaic, meaning vibration—of love.  In meditation, where heart and mind play the roles of two gathered in love, it is the “window of heaven” at the Crown Chakra which opens with the alchemy produced by the Pituitary Gland and the Pineal Body as rising currents of the ascending flame of love, offered as incense upward, engage their hormonal chemistry. Through this portal of light streams the inspiration and revelation of divine wisdom into human consciousness.  As a geometrical design of the human eye, it represents the aperture for the “third eye.”  These are all internal workings of the spiritual anatomy of the body temple which are activated from within by one who possesses the knowledge of sacred alchemy. 

This knowledge was celebrated by the Knights Templar in a most clever and subliminal way by affixing a rosebud, symbolic of the clitoris, atop the Gothic arches of the Cathedrals they built for the Church in Europe.  Women were known to have a unique capacity to enjoy sex, which was part of the basis for men’s hatred and fear of them.  This tiny protuberance at the top of the arch of the vulva is the only human organ whose function, it seems, is solely to give pleasure.   

While the function of the clitoris, placed by perfect design in a spot where it might be stimulated during intercourse, may be seen as that of solely giving pleasure, it also serves as a neurological triggering mechanism for the entire process of alchemy which creates the substance of connection with the divine.  It is through the medium of this substance of pneumaplasm, as we have already considered, that the spiritual gifts of heaven are conveyed into the earth, such as the gift of healing and the gift of premonition and intuitive discernment of events before they happen.

The fleeting pleasure experienced in orgasm is a glandular one which can be easily aroused by physical stimulation.  The Dionysian ecstasy of fusion with the divine, however, entails more than mere physical stimulation of the genitalia.  Sacred alchemy is activated by ones who know the sacredness of their own body temples and have obtained intuitively through exploration the inherent priestly knowledge protected so occultly and diligently for the past two millennia, now resurfacing in human consciousness.  Such ones are themselves priests and priestesses of a High Order. They reveal themselves as lovers as they approach the altar of sacred sex with a deep and passionate love for the Beloved.  In sacred sex the priest and priestess truly represent God and Goddess in wedlock enjoying the fruits of their creation and reveling in the pleasure of ecstatic union their alchemy affords them. The Vesica Pisces, both as vibrational and physical aspects of our sacred anatomy, contracts and opens, quivering as the fire of love falls from heaven and pours out into their creative field, blessing and sanctifying all that is contained in their worlds. Yes, a woman’s sexuality is truly intended by her Creator to be ecstatically pleasurable.   

It is not that men are not so equipped, as many have learned who have risen above the traditional rush to climax and explored the delicate glands around the base of the head of the penis, which, with gentle touch, or lying still during intercourse, occasions such alchemy within the male that leads to sexual ecstasy.  I am inclined to believe that the alchemy of ecstatic union with the Divine is entirely the domain of the feminine, even in the male who has enough of the feminine in his makeup to produce such alchemy. These two organ/glands, the glans clitoridis and the glans penis, are connected to the same Source of power, the Divine Feminine, that ultimately draws both the man and the woman into ecstatic union within the ascending flame arising out of the altar they have erected, either in solitude or in conjugal rapture.  These are altar pieces which are literally erected from within by aroused sexual energies that are no less sacred than the ceremonies intended to facilitate worship in a Basilica, nor than the One so worshiped. In the Motherland of Lemuria, they played an intricate and generative role in the Temple Service itself.

Clean Hands and Pure Heart

These verses from Psalm 24 say something about the qualifications for finding one’s own personal Holy Grail, as well as knowing whom the Grail serves:

The earth is the LORD’S, and the fullness thereof; the world, and they that dwell therein. For he hath founded it upon the seas, and established it upon the floods.

Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place?  He that hath clean hands, and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully. . . .   

Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting portals; and the King of glory shall come in.  Who is this King of glory?  The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory.        

The Psalmist sings of the King energy as coming into the heart when the gates and portals of the heart are swung open. The secrets of the Holy Grail are revealed to one whose hands are clean and whose heart is pure.  Another way of saying this is: one who’s mind meditates daily upon the spiritual laws of being and obeys them in one’s living, and who’s heart is lifted up and open to the purifying currents of love pouring out of heaven. It is in this governance of spirit and openness to love, as poet and modern-day muse Diana Durham elaborates in splendid detail in her book [The Return of King Arthur], that the enlightened mind and purified heart, symbolized by the sword and the cup, find their resting place together in the kingdom of heaven restored, through these sacred vessels, to the kingdoms of this world. 

 I will continue in this consideration and expand on its theme in my next post. Until then, be happy.  Be safe.

Spirit of the New Earth Vibration, pg 8: The Holy Grail

“If your humanity overflows, divinity inevitably happens. If your humanity is allowed to reach its very peak, divinity is a living reality for you. If your humanity is not allowed to reach its peak, divinity is just empty talk.  It’s “up there.”  (Sadhguru Joggi Vasudev)¹      

As I continue to share excerpts from my book SACRED ANATOMY, it is not without an awareness that the subject of our sexuality is not a very relevant one in light of today’s many critical and existential issues.  It is only relevant to an ongoing creative cycle that offers promise of a Golden Age and a New Earth emerging out of the New Heaven.  In this new cycle all creating things continue to be sacred.  The energetic vibration of the first seal in the endocrine system, the Gonads, is one of newness and right-expectancy.  The gift of the Spirit of the New Earth working through this seal is patience.  With these considerations, I continue to share a vision of what might be as we co-create a new world. 

THE HOLY GRAIL

THE HOPE AND POSSIBILITY for restoring connection with Source and returning to the state of union with the LORD God in the Garden of Paradise forms the basis for the Grail Quest in the Arthurian Legend.  Metaphorically speaking, once the cup is reunited with the sword, the feminine with the masculine, and King Arthur restored to the throne with his Queen as an equal and worthy partner in all their royal duties and functions, the magical kingdom of Camelot is restored. Once human consciousness is reunited with divine consciousness and the divine is once again present and in action in human affairs, Paradise can be restored on Earth.

The symbolism of this legendary myth may be seen as pointing to the restoration of the Wounded Fisher King’s sexual potency and productivity.  Remember, it is the Wounded Fisher King who is guardian over the Grail in his home, the Grail Castle. He is wounded early in the story and the wound was caused by a spear that pierced him through his thighs, which also involved his genitals, according to Wolfram von Eschenbach’s version of the story in Parzival.  His wound, which casts a shadow of infertility upon the land and consequent poverty upon the subjects of his kingdom, will not heal.  So his life and entire kingdom are cast into desolation and misery.  It is foretold that healing would be possible only when an innocent fool—Perceval in the story—stumbles into his court and inquires about the purpose of the Grail. 

The placing of the wound in the King’s genitals has been taken by some as reflecting on the church’s suppression of natural sexuality.  It was believed, then, that only by going on a quest for the Holy Grail, would the spiritual stagnation prevalent at that time be eliminated and replaced by enlightenment. There is no mistake that this quest was specifically focused in the feminine, as an Italian painting of Venus being adored by Grail knights portrays. In this fifteenth century painting, Venus is depicted by the artist inside the vesica pisces—representing, as we shall soon see, the womb of the Great Mother, or the Grail itself—with rays of light pouring out from her genital region and with knights and heroes below looking up to her in adoration. While the portrayal of this painting may be seen today as that of “lusting after the flesh,” certainly as lusting after the female body and the pleasure of sexual intimacy, it was seen back then in Eighteenth century Europe as a celebration of sacred sexuality, one of the key elements of Europe’s underground tradition, and of feminine wisdom or Sophia.  The painting clearly portrays how the power of female sexuality was held as something most sacred and that lusting after intimacy with the feminine was a lusting after union with divinity itself, the prime gift of the Holy Grail.  

The restoration of the legendary magical kingdom of Camelot obviously rests upon the sacred reunion of the masculine with the feminine so that the two become one, as it was in the Beginning.  The Grail Quest story indicates that would happen only when the cup and the sword are reunited, the sword representing the empowered masculine and the cup the empowering feminine. Perceval is instructed in the story to be careful not to seduce or be seduced by a woman and to be sure, upon finding the Grail, to ask the question, “Whom does the Grail serve?”  Perceval is so taken by the magical properties of the Grail, which generously serves up his heart’s desire of food and drink, that he fails to ask the right question and soon finds himself outside the King’s court and back out in the wilderness, only now with an unquenchable thirst for the magical experience of the Grail in the King’s court once again. Eventually, after much anguish and bitter toil—and ultimately deep, passionate longing for the Grail—he finds his way back to the Grail Castle.      

(My favorite author on this theme of the search for the Holy Grail is Diana Durham, whom  I’ve introduced in an earlier chapter.  Diana presents her enlightening insights into the Arthurian Legend as she thoroughly and invitingly explores the spiritual significance and essences hidden in its mythical symbolism in The Return of King Arthur. I will include an excerpt from her book in my consideration of the Vesica Pisces in my next post.)

The restoration of the magical kingdom of Camelot—of our sexuality—is possible once the King is honored and served up love from out of the Holy Grail of the human heart.  That would happen only when the man and woman, upon receiving each other’s hearts as they engage their sexuality, ask the right question and heed the answer: The Grail serves the Grail King. The King of Creation, who created the Grail in the first place, is the worthy recipient of the sacred and juicy essences generated and rightly sent upward in the alchemy of sexual union and ecstasy. The secrets to such alchemy and ecstasy lie hidden in the mysteries of feminine sexuality, or more specifically the “Feminine Principle.”  

The suppression of the mysteries of feminine sexuality may well be at the roots of the scandalous turbulence we are witnessing today in the Catholic church relative to pedophile priests.  Thwarting the natural design and purposes of life for human beings can only lead to distortions in behavior. The Divine Feminine cannot be left out of human experience without repercussions. She will find her way into human relationships at the most intimate levels without respect to gender, and those who attempt to deny Her will find themselves seeking union with Her in the shadows of deviant behavior with the same irresistible passion that drives them to seek union with the Divine, for She is divine. 

Historically, the Feminine Principle was once the centerpiece of much controversy and, as we have noted, persecution—strangely enough focused in a hatred and fear of midwives who posed a threat to the status quo of civilized decency because of their knowledge and skills in minimizing the pain in childbirth, when painful childbirth was taught by the Church to be the punishment for original sin.  During the early centuries of the Christian era, women’s sexuality was regarded with fear. Knowledge of the secrets of the Feminine was considered to be so fiercely powerful that it posed a unique threat to Christian thinking and to the authority of the Church itself.  This gave rise to the atrocities perpetrated by the Church against the Cathars during the Albegensian Crusades in thirteenth century France when over a hundred thousand, mostly women, were massacred. 

Even to this day there is no Christian concept of sex for joy only, let alone the idea—as in Tantrism or alchemy—that it can bring spiritual enlightenment. On the contrary, the Catholic Church forbids contraception and other Christian groups, such as the Mormons, frown upon post-menopausal sex. The authors of The Templar Revelation leave little doubt that all of these regulations were really about control over women, who it was thought must be made to view their sexuality with apprehension, “either because it is joyless, their marital duty and nothing else, or because it leads inevitably to the pain of childbirth.” 

Vesica Pisces 

The controversy and persecutions were over the alchemical power inherent in the tiny gland at the top of the gothic archway of the vulva, an archway that embodies the mystical Vesica Pisces, an image in sacred geometry formed by overlapping circles, possibly one of the most profound motifs of ancient and modern times. It represented in ancient religions, among other things, the vulva of the Great Mother and the joining of God and Goddess in the creation of the Universe.  In Christianity, it is the symbol of Jesus Christ which was used by the early Christians to mark their meeting places, referencing by its piscine shape the miracle of the loaves and fishes.  It represented a lot more than that, however.  (Excerpted from SACRED ANATOMY)

I will reveal the “lot more” the Vesica Pisces represents in my next post. I will close by sharing something most thought-provoking that Bishop Desmond Tutu said recently:

I have this secret longing—well, it’s not so secret as I’ve said it before—for women to take over and say “Men, we gave you all of this time. . . . You’ve made a mess of things. Women are taking over.” And women who would be feminine—not women who try to be like men—women who remember that they are life nurturers.  And I’m absolutely certain we would see a different world order.¹

Well, it’s happened before, as we shall see in my next post. Until then, be safe.   Anthony
