Wetiko: Mind-Virus or Devil?

“If you are going through hell, keep going.” Winston Churchill

I RECEIVED a few thought-full commentaries on my last post.  This first one came from “across the pond” in the UK and was penned by a friend and long-time follower, Peter Watson.  

Will (Wilkinson) is quite right, at least partly. Wetiko, a ‘mind-virus’  that Will has designated as the devil, is now rampant throughout civilization, and not just a white man’s affliction any longer, as it was before it also spread — like fire-water — to indigenous peoples too. 

However, to leave wetiko as only a virus, it could be imagined as just something else to blame for the human problem; something to cure, or attune.  Beware the snare-of-the-fowler, the devil, the self-active human mind, for it is the subtlest beast in the field, and Will’s word substitution is a prime example of translating and using words to dilute truth (as if it could), to divert the spotlight from itself — a “speak or spin” common to clever politicians. 

Would Jesus have addressed a virus trying to tempt him in the desert?  Would he have had a virus? Would a virus have been able to communicate at a mind level?  Or, rather, was Jesus addressing the dis-eased mind of mankind as he brought it to focus within himself to be dealt with? 

Over the millennia the devil has operated under many guises, and behind and in front of many disguises, prominent among them are leadership, patriotism, and enemy.  Perhaps, though, the most insidious is education, at least education designed to further civilization for self-centered purposes. 

How that works on the human mind is key to the human problem, as we shall see. Starting from the premise that there is nothing intrinsically wrong with the design and purpose of the human mind, we’re faced by the fact of what mankind has done with its mind, by what good men have trained their minds to do, which is, for the most part, collect and store data—enrich the mind with knowledge—explore history to validate and correlate the facts, and develop sciences to expand domination beyond the capabilities of their human capacities. We have megaliths and dolmens all over the place attesting to the legacy of demonstrating power, or, as C. S. Lewis called it, “that hideous strength.” 

Now, if there’s nothing inherently wrong with the design and purpose of the human mind, which is a capacity-of-consciousness, ordained to process and apply creative thought, we’re faced with the fact that the content-of-consciousness, used to develop civilizations, has not much been concerned to consider the way-of-Life, let alone allowing Life to call the shots, as it has been and is (concerned) to sustain and magnify self-centered intentions, albeit imagined to be for the best, but clearly without the vision of wisdom.

My poet friend Don Hynes up in Oregon offered these insightful thoughts:

I have a few thoughts concerning the use of wetiko as a substitute for the “devil” as Martin used the term. I’ve met Paul Levy who popularized this term in western psychology, taken from the Native American use as Will notes, and am familiar with Levy’s writings and blog posts. I believe wetiko is a most accurate term for the mass psychosis present in western civilization at this time, but as we might agree has been around for quite a while, and in my judgement would make a ready substitute for what Martin often termed “human nature.” 
 
However, by the “devil,” Martin, or perhaps I should say I, would indicate an incarnate presence, not a widespread illness as it were. By impersonalizing the “devil” I think the important link of evil with human embodiment is missed. Just as Martin surely emphasized the human form of divine or spiritual government, so I believe he would agree there is a similar form in the focus of anti-spirit or the anti-Christ to use John’s term from 1 John 4:3 in the NT. 
 
I won’t belabor this but offer it as my thoughts concerning Martin’s use of this specific term. I believe the anti-Christ is present in a number of humans who wield the powers of darkness and desolation, the “spiritual wickedness in high places” referred to by the apostle Paul, but the ultimate presence may be with us as well.
 
Geoff Tish sent these succinct words of wisdom from “down under” in New Zealand:
Doing nothing whilst achieving everything, is the master art to practice now. Love is the way of the Master.

“The self-active mind clings to that which is like unto itself, but it is afraid of that to which it clings.”

(Uranda, Third Sacred School, Vol 12, Ch 36)

PERFECT LOVE CASTS OUT FEAR

IT HAS BEEN SAID that perfect love — which is unconditional — casts out fear.  This mass paranoia and “psychosis” that has infected the world is nothing more than a mind-virus.  When a person goes into a fight-flight-or-freeze stress mode, the reptilian brain takes over in a survival mode blocking off all access to critical thinking with logic and reason, love and compassion, functions of the frontal lobe and the cerebrum.  All true thinking comes to a halt, along with the body’s immune system.  How, then, can one have “perfect love” when one’s only concern is to survive a global pandemic?  A large part of the answer lies in facing what it is that one fears and embracing it.  The larger part lies in the direction and object of our love.

Death is not something to fear but something to welcome as a passage to a higher level of life and creativity, a release from the prison of a physical form that offers very limited range of movement, for one thing, and an insecure and fragile abode for another.  From the moment it is born into the material world the human form begins to die and return to the humus from which it arose.  It’s the arduous task of our healthcare system to stave off the inevitable.  To facilitate this process, Life has provided scavengers to help break down and eliminate the metabolic waste of organic processes.  They’re called “viruses.” 

Yes, viruses are organisms we cannot do without.  We wouldn’t make it very far past the crib without them.  They get rid of toxic waste, the breeding ground for pathogens and disease.  In my practice I noticed a repeating pattern that demonstrated this function of viruses in patients that tested positive for a virus after having gotten over a bacterial infection.  The metabolic waste from infection fighting needed cleaning up.  I’ve seen videos showing perfectly healthy cells morph into viruses where scavenging of toxic waste was needed.  This Coronavirus would not be scavenging around in our bodies unless there was toxic waste to scavenge.  With diseases and death, the condition of the host is always the primary consideration in determining the cause. 

On the other side of this paradoxical existence, without a means of returning our human flesh to dust, we might live longer than we are want to in these limiting forms.  That would be a travesty for sure.  We would never be released from the material realm and return to the realms of light.  In the realms of light, there are no viruses.  There’s no need for them, nor for pathogens — nor for death.

Should we dare to look deeper into this “rabbit hole” we may even discover that we don’t really belong here in this plane of temporary existence.  This so-called “existential crisis” with which our planet is presenting us may be trying to tell us we don’t belong here at the level of the animal kingdom — where we behave like beasts at times — and that it’s time to let go of this world we’ve created and be about the business of creating a New World, a world that accommodates spiritual beings incarnate in capacities of light substance that do not break down, get sick and die.  What’s there to fear in this scenario? 

Oh that we could just let go and embrace a new way of living in this magical universe!  Death, then, would surely lose its sting.  Wetiko, this paralyzing mind virus, would be dissipated for the construct of thought it is that has no reality to it whatsoever.  There’s really nothing to be afraid of and everything to look forward to in this right of passage we call death.  

As for a “devil” entity in the world, an embodied anti-Christ as my poet friend describes “the mass psychosis present in western civilization at this time,” perhaps such a devil is in the details, as we say.  And there are so many details in our lives calling for our attention; lots of peripheral fallout from this pandemic, for instance.  I read in the Washington Post that some 140,000 children under age 18 have lost parents or caregivers between March 2020 and June 2021—just one of many crises facing people the world over.  These can be seen a distractions from what’s going on above and behind the surface play of events.  I’m not being cold and uncaring here.  On the contrary, I’m offering a higher view and perspective above our circumstances.   

If we human beings are being asked to let go of this corrupt world, then let us do so graciously and with a attitude of gratitude.  Let us awaken fully to our purpose for incarnating at this moment in time, this historical moment when an old world is passing away needing our blessing, while a new world and New Earth are being born needing our welcome and stewardship.  The second answer to my question “How, then, can one have ‘perfect love’ when one’s only concern is to survive a global pandemic?” lies in what or who is the object of my love response.  

There is no more worthy object of our love than our Creator.  Sometimes in our anguish and grief we look to God with an attitude of blame. “How could God allow this to happen?!” Job’s attitude is exemplary: “Though he slay me yet will I trust him.”  In this biblical story, Job lost everything and was himself inflicted with boils.  His three friends tried to comfort him by encouraging him to blame God for his troubles.  Instead, he blessed God and praised him for his wonderous works.  The result was that everything he lost was returned to him sevenfold.  

If you need some encouraging words of comfort, you may find solace in Sharon Hart’s recent post on Facebook:

“To all my friends out there who know what’s really going on… To all who see through conspiracies and are intuitive… Yes, sometimes it’s a curse and not always a blessing to be awake. Awakening is the most liberating, alienating, excruciating, empowering, lonely, confusing, freeing, frightening, expansive journey.
 
If you find yourself struggling as you try to process all this insanity, you are not alone. No one talks about the darkness that accompanies awakening, or the GRIEF. Not only grieving the life and illusions you once had but the realization that almost everything you thought you once knew, is a LIE. The beliefs you’ve held, people you were taught to trust, principles you were taught- ALL LIES.
 
Shattering illusions is RARELY an enjoyable experience. There is a considerable amount of discomfort that comes with growth and the grieving process doesn’t stop there.  With these newfound realizations, you then find yourself grieving all over again.  Grieving the loss of many relationships with people who just don’t and won’t “get it.” 
 
Feeling alone; being ridiculed and shamed, not only by the masses but for many of you, your very own family and friends too. Feeling like you no longer have much in common with the people you are surrounded by. Struggling with carrying on bullshit, shallow conversations that lack substance with those who are still fast asleep.  Even feeling disconnected from your entire support system because they can’t see what you see. Some even grieve the loss of their ignorance — because “ignorance is bliss” and reality is harsh.
 
Awakening can be a lonely road and you will often find yourself journeying alone.  There is no way to sugarcoat it – Awakening to the realities of this world is brutal. It will have you running through the entire gamut of human emotions.  You have to master the art of diving down the darkest of rabbit holes only to come out and still function in daily life, and that’s a skill people don’t talk about enough.  
 
Some of you are struggling with feeling disconnected from family and friends, it’s as though they exist in another world.  Please know you are not alone, and not only are you not alone, you have an entire tribe standing with you. We may be separated by miles, but we are deeply connected; in purpose and in spirit”. (Author unknown)
Sharon wrote in response to this: 
“When I read this I responded – Exactly, but it’s worth it because we will be creating the New Earth – and much sooner than you think.”
 
This is a time for a reset of our priorities.  We are blessed to have one another to love and care for and share life with. We are blessed by our Creator with a consciousness to know ourselves and each other; above all to know our Creator and share in the creation of our world. To serve God is a privilege not to be taken lightly or begrudgingly, but with a glad heart and an attitude of praise and thanksgiving. Though he slay me, yet will I love and trust him . . . the devil be damned. 
 
I welcome your thoughts on the subject, which you can share with others by posting them in the comment section.  Until my next post, 
 
Be love. Be loved.

Governance of Love – Vs – Dark Force Machinations

“In your patience possess ye your souls . . . And when ye shall see Jerusalem compassed with armies, then know that the desolation thereof is nigh . . . for these be the days of vengeance, that all things which are written may be fulfilled.”  —Jesus (Luke 21:19-22)

♦ ◊ ♦

A COLLEAGUE and long time friend, Will Wilkinson, sent me a presentation by Martin Cecil, a spiritual mentor to many, that struck me as being quite relevant to what’s afoot in the world today.  With Will’s agreement, I am publishing it here on my blog.  Pay particular attention to Will’s word substitutions, which he explains in his preface.  The subheadings in Martin’s presentation are mine.

WILL: Martin Cecil, leader of the Emissaries – a spiritual community I habituated for 21 years – spoke the following words extemporaneously in 1980 during a summer session I attended in Colorado. To make his insights more widely accessible, I’ve substituted for the Christian terms, specifically, God for Love, priesthood for spiritual government. Martin used the term “devil” often. I changed this to “wetiko,” a Cree term for “mind virus,” a malady affecting white men (I’d say affecting everyone). I renamed the piece; the original title was Worldwide Machinations. Today, forty years later, this message seems remarkably relevant.   

[Note: This is rather lengthy. You may want to print it out for reading later.  Also, for a direct connection with Will Wilkinson, and to join in his “Love Casting” event, go to his website at http://www.noonclub.org.)

THE GOVERNMENT OF LOVE

   Martin Cecil

 MARTIN: Consistently we concern ourselves with what is necessary to uplift—uplift toward a true point of centering. We ourselves have recognized this requirement in our own experience. There is always something higher than we ourselves are. The orientation should be upward if there is to be provided what is necessary from the standpoint of spiritual government. We make use of all our circumstances to extend the spiritual government.

We ourselves have upward orientation. We are very much aware that this is what is required of the whole world: upward, right orientation. In any pattern of government there is always the necessity that those who govern should be oriented upward. Of those in spiritual government it has been said that they rightly represent Life to the people and the people to Life. To do this those individual spiritual governors must be oriented upward.

When this country in which we now are was first initiated this requirement of orientation upward was in the consciousness of those concerned. “One nation under God.” Of course what that might mean may not have been too clearly understood, but at least there was this recognition that there was something higher—if there was to be anything of value in the nation which was forming, it would have to be oriented in that direction. Clearly this was the basic foundation of the country as it began to put in an appearance.

One might say that it had been the basic foundation for almost any nation that began to put in an appearance. Monarchies, for instance, were established on the basis of the representation of deity. The British monarchy is based in this idea—in a sense it’s become a figurehead, so that it isn’t real, and yet in another sense it is real because there is a sense not only of duty but of necessity, to play a role that is fitting in that position. That’s a very controlled situation, isn’t it? There is a role to be played upon which a great many people are depending. It’s important to many people that there should be a representation of something that is true to their highest vision. So there is value to the British monarchy on this basis. The Queen is also the head of the church. The divine right of kings was one of the factors in times past because the king was supposed to represent God. Well that’s right. He didn’t do it perhaps, but that’s the proper role he should have been playing. Seeing that there’s not all that much power exercised by monarchy these days, in a direct sense, then people are more comfortable with it actually. They feel the need of something higher, other than what they themselves have elected—most people have little confidence in that—they have little confidence in themselves. It is good to have someone in whom one may have a certain amount of confidence.

LUST FOR POWER

In this country there was a recognition of the need for the point of focus in deity; but that was rather a vague thing that was to be known individually speaking, because church and state were separate. And if the population ceased to be concerned with letting God (Love) be supreme in their own living, well the nation would disintegrate, because this was the basis upon which it had been initiated. For any government, in any nation, there always is the requirement of something higher. It is because of this that those who are interested in power—there always has been a lust for power in human beings, which comes to special focus obviously in some people; we have seen it exemplified in someone like Hitler, and there have been many such aspiring persons seeking to be supreme in the world; so there are those who have this particular lust for power. This may be interpreted in different ways by different people, according to the level from which you view the situation.

There is a presidential election coming up [in 2024] and there are those, strangely enough, who aspire to that position. The idea may be on the part of the electorate, more perhaps than on the part of the individual who is elected, that someone is being put in a position of great power. But in any pattern of government, if it is to work at all, there is always something higher. We recognize that this should be Life, from the true standpoint.

Someone who is put in the White House finds himself put in a box. There is very little freedom of movement there and one has to wonder where the enormous amount of money required to be elected to such a position actually comes from, because I don’t know many people in the world who are going to give away their money for nothing in return. Where you see very large sums of money being bandied around, you may be pretty sure that somebody is going to benefit from it. It may still be the fiction that anyone can become President of the United States, but that’s really not the case anymore, at least not unless you have considerable backing from somewhere. And if you have that backing from somewhere, there is an obligation too, somehow. So there is something higher than the President of the United States, in fact.

DARK FORCE MACHINATIONS OF ANTICHRIST

 Now of course there has always been the idea that there were shadowy figures in the background who were pulling the strings, accomplishing this and that on this basis; but it has been difficult, thus far, for these shadowy figures really to be located. You find someone who is in a position of apparent authority, such as the President of the United States, then you look beyond him to see why he’s there. “Oh he was elected by the people.” Well there were usually just two candidates who have the possibility of being elected, and they were both backed by somebody or other. It doesn’t really matter who’s elected, there is something higher. And whether it is clearly seen or not—it isn’t for the most part—there is always something higher wherever there is government. Here is a principle—because there is no true government on earth without Life, something higher than all those who participate in the processes of government.

We recognize the need for spiritual government and therefore acknowledge that there must be something higher than we are. If we provide the means by which the spiritual government can be extended, we only do that because there is something higher than we are. The same principle holds true in the governments of the world. There is no government that is supreme to itself. It may look that way. This is particularly so in the areas where there are dictatorships—but there is always something back of the dictator; there is always something higher. In this upside-down world we can say it’s higher. It’s really lower until we have the world the right way up.

There are nefarious controls in operation in the world, relative to the governments of the world, which are not on the front pages of the newspaper—because the same sort of controls that are back of the governments are back of the newspapers too. So we have rather a tight situation here which relates to what has been called the antichrist.

If we recognize that there is the Christ (the spirit of Love) springing forth from God (Love), which is the means for true spiritual government on earth, and every place else in the universe as far as that’s concerned, and we see that this operates on the basis of human beings insofar as this world is concerned, then we may recognize that the same principle is at work in the reverse sense, in view of the fact that it might be said that the wetiko virus runs the world the way things are now. Perhaps it’s changing a little. We trust that it certainly will, because we do what is required of us. But there must be human beings to do it. And if there is the government of Love on earth, which is the government of Life on earth in a specific sense relative to this world, then the government of the world as it now is functions on the basis of the same principle, only in the reverse.

WHAT YOU READ IS NOT WHAT’S HAPPENING

We look at the governments of the world as though they were separate entities vying with each other. We know the principle: divide and conquer. So here on the surface are all these things occurring between the countries of the world, between the governments of those countries, which look like conflict and no doubt is warfare. We see the massive confrontation that occurs between the superpowers. And it is supposed that they have sort of traded things off so that a balance might be maintained. But we recognize human nature everywhere. If human nature is on both sides, then the ultimate focus relative to human nature in fact is on both sides. And the fact of sides is something that keeps people from recognizing the truth of the matter. If we can all be embroiled in conflict, then we are looking at happenings that are not the real happenings. The things that are described in newspapers and read about in books for the most part are not the real happenings at all. Political science, for instance, is phony. It’s dealing with things that are on the periphery and never seeing what really is going on behind the scenes. If the reality of divine nature experienced on earth through human form comes to focus somewhere—we have some consciousness of what that focus is—then we may see on the reverse side of the coin that human nature comes to focus somewhere.

In all generations there have been those who have delved—particularly in recent times—into the picture to see if they couldn’t come up with this nefarious bunch who are playing both ends against the middle, and maintaining a focused control relative to what is happening on earth for all people—the antichrist. We could say that if there is a focus of Love, there is a focus of anti-Love. In the true state one might say there isn’t either; there is just the way things are. In view of the false duality that has put in an appearance, we can see from this stance the focus of Love and the focus of anti-Love—disputing over the body of mankind. That dispute comes to focus in Love on one hand and in wetiko on the other hand. The wetiko mind virus requires human form to operate, just as Love requires human form to operate. As there begins to be a focus for the operation of the government of Life on earth, we may recognize that there will be a balancing—seemingly balancing for the moment—focus in form of wetiko.

MONEY, A SUBSTITUTE OPERATING SUBSTANCE

Wetiko is pictured as a rather obvious sort of an entity. He’s really wetikoish! But we know very well that good and evil are opposite ends of the same stick, the stick of human nature. Therefore if you are seeking out some obvious wetiko in human form somewhere, you are not likely to find it. Virtually all the troubles that have come into the world may be traced back to good people. So wetiko would likely be related to some of the best people. This is an interesting thought. But when we come right down to it, we need to recognize two things—one relative to the focus of the government of Love and one relative to the focus of the government of wetiko: in either case it is essential that there should be the substance of operation. We are beginning to become increasingly aware of the spiritual substance essential to government. After the fall of man that spiritual substance insofar as human experience was concerned began to be dissipated quite rapidly. Those who were on hand at that time had some awareness of what was required to maintain government. This spiritual substance was required, but it was dissipated. So there had to be a substitute made which would serve the same purpose, but in the government of wetiko, the government of the anti-Love. We know what that substance is; we know what the substitute for pneumaplasm is; we call it money. Therefore the control of wetiko on earth requires this substance to operate, and it is through this substance that the operation of government is carried on. 

We are aware that there are great concentrations of money in various areas. Do you think all this happened just by chance? Or that conflicts have arisen this way and that way just by chance? There is always seemingly a reasonable explanation. Human nature is very good at that, isn’t it? We have great experience in justifying, excusing ourselves for doing things that we know darn well we shouldn’t do. We have expertise in human nature, which is very competent in rationalizing, explaining away almost anything. This spreads a veil of confusion over the whole human consciousness. You can’t seem to get ahold of anything. And there are all kinds of red herrings flapping around, and people catch sight of these things and go greedily after them with the best of intentions—good people trying to make a better world but doing everything actually to make it worse. And yet you could never convince such good people that what they were doing was destroying the world or playing into the hands of wetiko.

Now, wetiko is very specifically human beings—not the vast majority of the population of the world, but certainly the focus of wetiko could not put in an appearance if there wasn’t something to be focalized. What is focalized is the human nature that is present in everybody.  And if one can devise a method of utilizing human nature which is universally present, then you can really build an empire.  And people have done this—empires have come and gone; great leaders have come and gone. We live in a world these days which has, like it or not, become very much one in the external sense. So the prize is considerable if one is interested in such a prize: the world, to be exact. Heretofore, within recorded history, it has not been the whole world because it wasn’t as unified as it is today—one couldn’t call it unified; but it is in a certain sense, with communications and so on. Here is a prize indeed.

We might recall something with respect to Christ’s experience as it is recorded for us—the occasion of His temptations, as they have been called. The first one was, “Make these stones bread,” and relates in that sense to food, I suppose. The world is full of starving people. Human beings look for bread. One of the best controls that can be exercised over people is to get them hungry. They will do almost anything to get food. So this is a very usual ploy in the world, used at whatever level it may be, sometimes on a grand scale, sometimes on a small scale, a method of keeping human beings subject to the wetiko because they have got to eat, after all. Withhold the food and human beings will behave like animals in the sense of their subconscious drives. They are worse than animals, aren’t they? But it can readily be seen how control can be established over people on the basis of bread. And if people don’t have bread, they are not interested in the word of Life, the proper element of control. They are willing to sell their souls to the wetiko. We can see that that, from the standpoint of those who are starving, is quite reasonable. But there are others who are taking advantage of what human beings do under that sort of a circumstance.

SURENDERING OUR RESPONSIBUITY TO THE GOVERNMENT

Then there was the matter of casting oneself down from the pinnacle of the temple. Nowadays in the welfare states in which we live, there is less and less need to take any responsibility. If human beings relinquish responsibility, they are relinquishing it to someone. It isn’t as though all responsibility vanishes. But someone assumes responsibility and those who have relinquished it are then slaves. Here is a way of convincing people that they are acting for their own benefit by surrendering responsibility. You surrender responsibility to the government. But then, who’s the government? The people you elect or Mr. Moneybags behind the people you elect? And so it’s a sort of con game, isn’t it? Everybody is being conned into surrendering their responsibility in order to receive—they are paying for it with the surrender of their responsibility—in order to receive security; “We will be borne up. It doesn’t matter what we do; somebody is going to hold us up.”  And everybody becomes completely flabby, depending upon everybody else supposedly. It’s a democratic country, after all. When the fact of the matter is that in the surrendering of these responsibilities to some parental government, one is reverting into childhood and is then beholden to whoever it is that has taken over the responsibility. But then you have to keep going back and back and back because whatever level of government may be considered, there is always something beyond it, something higher than that. We see it from the standpoint of municipal government, county government, state government, federal government. Are you going to stop there, do you think? No. There is something back of the federal government. It doesn’t look as though it’s one thing that is back of the federal government of the United States. It doesn’t look as though it’s the same thing that’s back of the federal government of the United States as is back of the government of the Soviets. No, after all these are in conflict. Well as long as everybody can be conned into a consideration of the conflict, the real state of affairs is not seen.

I bring this out so that there may be a recognition that the more the government of Love comes into form and expression on earth, the counterbalance of the government of wetiko appears in focus. If we recognize that the restoration is the restoration of the government of Love through human beings on earth, then from the standpoint of the opposite end of the stick—it’s not the same stick by any manner of means—there is the government of wetiko coming increasingly to focus. This occurs out of the sight of virtually everybody, just as, thankfully, the government of Love has been out of the sight of virtually everybody. But we might anticipate, from the standpoint of the government of wetiko, that somewhere along the way they have it made, as they think, in which case there is no more need to keep out of the sight of anybody, because nobody can do anything about it anyway. It’s a fait accompli.

We see something a little differently here, because the same thing may be said to be true relative to the government of Love. There is a certain point at which it is a fait accompli. The government of wetiko doesn’t know that. It has no way of knowing. In fact what is happening in this unification process from the standpoint of wetiko can be most useful from the standpoint of Life. There is a point when the victory seems sure for wetiko. They can come out of hiding, so to speak. And suddenly everybody is amazed to see what has really been going on and how they have been fooled and conned—and in a position now that they can’t do anything about it. But all the world has been unified in this fashion. Here is an irresistible force present, the government of Love, which can overtop anything that wetiko can do. We think of wetiko as utilizing nuclear weapons, for instance; here is the power. But if you have nobody to fight, if the whole world is enslaved, what do you want these weapons for? They are useless. There is nobody to direct them at. Certainly not against the government of Love, because those who compose that government—who are they? They aren’t all in one place anyway. The only value of nuclear weapons is if you can get everybody in one place.

NO NEED FOR NUCLEAR WEAPONS

This one aspect of the government of wetiko relates to fear, doesn’t it? Fear is something to control people. Get people looking at these fearful things and they are hypnotized. So from the standpoint of individual human beings there is an awful danger here. The thing that is projected is not the danger—nuclear weapons—because if there is in fact a unification taking place in the world, do you suppose that there is likely to be a nuclear war? Those concerned are not interested in destroying themselves. But it’s a good ploy: scare everybody to death—that on the one hand; of course, greed on the other. Greed and fear are the two things which keep human beings in line. People think they are going to benefit by being taken care of so nicely by a government of benefaction. Do you think that’s really what it is? For the moment it seems all right, but gradually the moral fiber is being sapped out of people.

Do you see how it is, that there is nothing that can meet this state of affairs except on the basis of the government of Life—on the basis of those who are no longer in any way subject to the controls which operate to the benefit of wetiko? Could we say that’s true of us yet? If there are some apparent seeming benefits around, well let’s use that to the advantage of doing what needs to be done. We can use wetiko’s weapons against himself. The only way that people subject to human nature can see to deal with such a threat that is present, if they awaken to it, is to get into a battle with it, to protest, to object, and if necessary to pick up baseball bats or whatever and go to war. But against whom? That is not the way. That merely insures the slavery, the subjection. It looks so reasonable and anybody can argue about it. From our standpoint there is only one thing that is reasonable, and that is to stop being subject to wetiko in our own living moment by moment, so that there is something emergent which cannot be manipulated. Greed and fear are the two factors of manipulation. It doesn’t matter what the fear is about, as long as it’s there. And there is the greed element, isn’t there? “Well we want more. We want principally more money.” Aha, that’s the substitute substance, isn’t it? That’s wetiko’s substance. Well if we have some spiritual substance, this substitute substance can be allowed, if it’s freed up, to conform with what is present in the spiritual substance, and therefore be of value. But it isn’t a substance that we would use in any way to manipulate anybody. And we ourselves rightly cannot be manipulated by it.

We participate in the government of Love, which is possible by reason of spiritual substance. Spiritual substance in the government of Life brings everything into the dominion of Life. And we anticipate this. But it is not going to be done by wetiko’s methods. And it’s not going to be done because we get into a battle with wetiko.  It’s not going to be done because we become afraid of what we begin to see—and we are going to need to begin to see what is really happening. We have seen a very low level thus far, never penetrated very far. There are some people in the world who think they have seen something working, but we need to see what is really happening. So I draw all these things to your attention so that you may be aware of the absolutely essential fact of being clear of wetiko, so that nothing of wetiko’s domain can manipulate us. It still does to a certain extent. But by reason of our passion for Life we can be easily brought clear. On no other basis will we be brought clear. Passion for Life: the First Great Commandment. “Though He slay me, yet will I trust Him.” Absolutely! Then we are in position to allow that true government to be a reality on earth and capable of handling anything that wetiko may do.  (Martin Cecil, August 13, 1980)

We’re at war . . . with dark forces of evil over the Body of Mankind and the Earth herself.  However, the lust for power and control is a futile and fatal hunger.  In the larger context, there are cyclical events of cosmic proportion to which those who seek control of the world and ownership of the planet are either totally oblivious or arrogantly ignoring.  As these earth-toppling events unfold—and they will come to pass—the “powers that be” in this world will see their assumed power and control reduced to naught, and that all power and control are, always have been and will ever remain , in the hands of the Lord of hosts. 

Let this war against all that is good, right and holy, be met by the power of Love.  For only love can and will overpower fear, hate and greed.  Lust after Love, the only real Power that is, that cannot be contained, but must be shared and cast abroad.  Hunger and thirst after righteousness.

“Serve God Not Mammon” . . . . . . . An Existential Reboot

THESE ARE HARD AND CHALLENGING TIMES of existential moment requiring steadfast centering in the Truth of Love and of Life, the Source of our very being and existence; a time to renew our service to God and abandon our servitude to Mammon.¹ 

These are as well apocalyptic days of revelation of Light and exposure of dark forces, the would-be deceivers of the world, who are beginning to emerge from the shadows into the light of day in full view of the entire world believing they have succeeded in beguiling and enslaving the global community of Man.  But they will be aghast to discover their efforts were not only in vain but were used to expose them and bring them down, their control of the world taken from them and returned to the Lord and King of this universe.  In that exposure, many people the world over will be astonished, as they awaken to what’s been afoot all along, to see who “they” are.  The Truth will always out.  The Lord of host will have his day of victory over the dark forces of evil. That day is nigh, even at the door.  

This is also a time for repentance and forgiveness, and for rebooting. A time for transcending the material world of Mammon, for transcending what’s familiar and comfortable to embrace temporary discomfort and change from the old ways to a new way of being on a planet in transition herself.  

We are riding an ascending wave of transformation and transmutation occasioned by the Earth’s movement into a higher vibrational arm of the Milky Way Galaxy in direct alignment with the Sun of suns at the galactic core.  To the degree we are willing, our polarity is being shifted from the material world and its troubling affairs to the peaceful and magical world of Spirit, specifically the Spirit of Love, of Truth and of Life.  These are the important essences of life, the things that really matter in these hard times when polarization in disease and death is so prevalent.  It is a time for inner stillness, for watching and praying, and for seeing the salvation of the Lord of hosts.  For we are the hosts of Heaven come to return this planet to its Creator and rightful owner.  

In the spirit of renewal of our orientation in the Spirit of God as the only worthy recipient of our service of love and worship, our praise and our thanksgiving—and above all our expression—I offer the following meditation from the closing chapter of SACRED ANATOMY – where spirit and flesh dance in the fires of creation.  May it bring you peace and assurance that all is well, and well in the hands of the Lord and his angelic hosts.  May it also stir buried memories of a Paradise lost and by what gross error we brought Eden down upon our heads so that we don’t repeat it—even as we are on the threshold of doing so again in our day and on our watch.  Let us remember for ourselves, and for the rest of the Body of Mankind.

Worship, Sacrifice and the Search for Eden

       THE ANCIENT SEERS chanted mantras to evoke the presence of Purusha, the primordial Cosmic Being, the source of all human life, some part in which each of us is said to originate. As the presence of purusha began to be known during meditation, these ancients created the world’s first religious ceremonies to celebrate the purusha: “that Great Being of which we are all a part.” (From MANTRA, Sacred Words of Power by Thomas Ashley-Ferrand.)  

       As we have seen, worship had been, up until the time of the Master Jesus, an approach by man toward the LORD God after having departed His presence and gotten lost in a world that had literally crumbled under his feet and left him a vagabond and a wanderer. One can only imagine the pain in the hearts of those who knew life in the Motherland, where it is believed the Garden of Eden was located, just after she sank and the ocean waters covered her over so finally that there remained hardly any evidence at all that she had even once existed. The tropical islands of Hawaii are all that remain of Lemuria, or Mu, leaving us a small remnant as a reminder of what a beautiful and heavenly place Eden was. Before that fateful day the word “sacrifice” did not even exist in the Motherland.   

       Worship in the motherland of Mu was a celebration of life through ceremony and festivity, quite elaborate, according to one account from a diary of a young seminarian studying for the priesthood in Mu. In one entry he describes a festival procession honoring the God and the Goddess of the temple wherein She and all the priestesses were clad in flowing, transparent attire. He describes how he and his colleague priestess and friend had been chosen to spend the night before the festival together in the temple in preparation for the next day’s ceremony.  That preparation included sanctification of the temple through sacred sexual intimacy and ecstatic embrace in the unified release of love’s radiant substance of blessing.

      Reading his account in a book based on James Churchword’s research into this lost continent, Mu Revealed, by Tony Earll,  brings back haunting memories of a time we once knew the world and our presence and function in it as sacred in every respect.  There simply was not anything that was not sacred.  What happened to spoil it remains unknown, although theories and speculations have been put forward relative to the abusive manipulation of solar power.  Some say it was the worship of the physical body and of sexual promiscuity that brought human consciousness to its lowest level.  Whatever the details, it was the result of man reversing his polarity in God and orienting in the material world. The entire civilization abruptly came to a halt in a massive deluge as the continental shelf upon which Lemuria rested descended with its sixty-one million inhabitants into the depth of the Pacific Ocean, an ironical name for such an awesome grave-site of the cradle of humanity. 

       After the Deluge, as noted above, worship became a means of appeasing angry gods who had brought so much misery and desolation into the lives of human beings, hoping and praying that they would restore the Garden of Eden and return them to it.  Human beings began to offer sacrifices to appease the gods—and there was good reason for the emergence of a belief in many gods, as the very elements of earth and sky became visible and audible players in what seemed to be battles between them in the heavens. According to Dr. Immanuel Velikovsky’s account in his monumental work, Worlds in Collision (1950), the planet Mars was thrown into a near collision course with the Earth as Venus, then a comet born out of the side of Jupiter, was caught by our solar system and made into a planet herself. There must have been a period of painful memories of Paradise lost as mankind fell into a state of collective amnesia in the wake of such horrifying catastrophes. We had forgotten where Paradise was, or that it had ever even existed, except for oral traditions and legendary stories, and a longing that stayed in our hearts for what we knew not.

       That longing has sent men and women on a desperate search the world over for a heavenly place to call Home, a longing that could not be fulfilled by some external setting.  For Paradise was a state of consciousness that had taken tangible form in the Motherland through a people living together in peace and accord. It has been lying dormant in human consciousness, which had blotted it all out and buried it beneath layers of residue of failure and painful memories. To find it, man would have to look within himself and remember who he is and from whence he has fallen, and how.

      This was the “Good News” which the Master Jesus brought to humanity and to the world:   “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is at hand.” Turn around and see! It is within you and all around you!  I like the line from the movie “If You Build It They Will Come, “Is this heaven?” to which Kevin Costner’s character replied “No, it’s Iowa.” Perhaps the answer could have been “Yes! In Iowa!”

       When the Lord of Love incarnated through the man Jesus, according to the Biblical account, He brought the Good News that within us each one is the kingdom of heaven and that our bodies were ordained by the living God to be His very temples on earth, our temples as well. He himself reportedly did not openly use the temple in Jerusalem to worship God, a temple that had been built by Herod for the Jews, although he did, on one occasion at least, preach in it, and on another occasion drove the money changers out of it.  Indeed he even foretold of its destruction—that not one stone would be left upon another—which came to pass shortly after His departure.  Instead, he chose the wilderness, into which he retreated from time to time, as a setting to commune with His Father.  His place of worship was his own body temple.  His place of prayer was in his own “closet,” the “secret place of the Most High.” Here is where he taught his followers to go when they prayed, in secret where the Father, who sees in secret, would reward them in secret. (Matt. 6:5)

       Toward the end of his ministry on earth he shared a “Last Supper” with his disciples in an upper room, where he broke bread and drank of the fruit of the vine with them, asking that they continue doing so in remembrance of Him. “I am the true vine and my Father is the husbandman…and ye are the branches,” were some of his parting words.  Through this act he refocused the priesthood according to the order established by the High Priest Melchizedek.  The place of worship was thus moved from the temple of stone to the temple of living flesh and blood.

       The “upper room” may be seen as a metaphor for consciousness, or heaven.  In this sense, then, the Lord of Love elevated the place of worship of God to its rightful and original place in the upper room of consciousness in a living, breathing temple of flesh, and invited all to worship the Father “in spirit and in truth”— in other words, in the heaven that is within them and in the earth of their daily living. In so doing he reestablished for all time the human body as a sacred place wherein God dwells and walks with Man, and through Man in this world, a world which He “so loved” that He sent His own son to save it from perdition.

       Like many of his teachings which have seemingly been ignored—perhaps because they had not been accurately disclosed by those who redacted and compiled them in the form of the New Testament, or even have not been fully comprehended in the records that were handed down to us—human beings have continued in their traditional ways of building churches and cathedrals of stone and mortar wherein they have insisted upon establishing their so-called “tabernacles” for God to dwell with them.

       Truth be known, there is no representation of the Divine Presence in any building until a human being consciously living in divine identity enters it.  In these cold, marble-lined edifices we worship the image of a God whom we have made in the image and likeness of ourselves, which we then seek to appease with sacrifice and penance.  In a manner of speaking, the practice of sacrificing the human body as a token of repentance for sin has continued long after the Lord of Love had sanctified it as a holy temple of worship.  Castigating the flesh as something “sinful” hardly reveals an attitude of reverence for the body as a temple.  Seeing how human beings tend to view their bodies merely as a means for pleasure, and/or for getting them from birth to death, where they hope to end up in some “heaven hereafter,” it is little wonder they are plagued by so many physical ailments brought on by sheer abuse and neglect.

      The truth is the kingdom of heaven is at hand.  It is here now awaiting our entrance.  To enter we need only turn around and begin our ascent into the temple of light that is within us.  Worship the Father in spirit and in truth.  Worship God in the beauty of holiness, not Mammon in the debasing lure of worldly riches. 

◊ ♦ ◊  

It is a time for a reset and rebooting of our way of living in the Kingdom of Heaven on Earth.  A time to look up and go up to a new and higher level of joy and peace where viruses and disease are no longer necessary to the evolution of our humanity for the revelation of our divinity.  A level where there is no suffering nor pain, nor crying, nor death.  Let us sing the song of Solomon to our humanity: “Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away.  For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone . . . the time of the singing of birds is come . . . Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away.”  The old is passing away making room for the new being born.  Let us rejoice and be glad in all of it.

I welcome your thoughts and feelings.  Until my next post, blessings of love and light,

Oneness With The Ocean of Motion

ONENESS WITH THE OCEAN OF MOTION — (From the Foreword of my book ATTUNEMENT WITH SACRED SOUND)

By PenDell Pittman, MM, MA — Attunement Practitioner, Author and Musician

“We live in an ocean of motion.” This famous little phrase describes the quiet, yet all-encompassing platform of our lives. The rhythm of our breathing, the hum of our nervous system, the wide range of verbal utterances that we voice or hear are but a few reminders, close at hand, of the infinite spectrum of vibration within us and surrounding us.

Vibration with a purpose is “energy”, and specific ranges of energy are identified by us human beings, based on our own sensing of them. Our eyes see the energy range of “visible light”, our ears hear “audible sound”, our skin senses heat and impacts of motion on our physical bodies. Tastes and smells are also particularized ranges of energy. Scientific instruments and other devices engage energy ranges beyond the discernment of our five senses – radio and TV frequencies, microwaves, infrared and ultraviolet light, x-rays, gamma rays, cosmic rays, etc.

Further, the thoughts we think, the emotions we feel, and the whole of “consciousness”, human and otherwise, are waves of energy. The world of so-called “form” around us is but another spectrum of energy, one that moves slowly enough to appear to us to be “solid” and inanimate. Social systems, economies, governments, and countless other forms of human interaction represent the movement of energy among people. Beyond earth, the moon, the planets, the sun, its sun, whole galaxies appear to follow ancient rhythms and resonances. 

The book you now hold in your hands, Attunement with Sacred Sound, by fellow musician and Attunement practitioner, Dr. Anthony Palombo, provides a pivotal revelation about the phenomenal connection you and I have to the powerfully grand energies of all creation. The seeming platitude that states, “We are all one,” or “We are one with everything,” is quite true, in fact! Keep reading and you will discover more about just how profoundly this is the case.

Dr. Anthony Palombo – “Tony” – and I have known each other for almost 40 years. Never has there been a time, in my observation, when Tony has not exhibited a conscious attitude that consistently recognizes the connection between “heaven and earth” (the intangible and the tangible, if you will), a core kinship between all people, and the resonance that entrains throughout all of “creation”, with its infinite components. Tony’s is a noble stance and vision, to be sure, but why is it relevant to us now? Because, if we are to receive the full spectrum of learning, guidance, and inspiration from studying this book – a work that, I believe, largely distills (without coming close to fully biographing) Tony’s life’s work – we will find ourselves adopting that same outlook as Tony has – one filled with awe, wonder, discovery, and a sense of privilege to know and work in this precious, delicate, and, dare I say, sacred field.

What allows the “magic pill” of Attunement with Sacred Sound to uniquely provide healing, relief and upliftment (for many millennia now), where other remedies may not? (And it has been proven to do just that.) For that matter, why exactly does music have “charms to sooth a savage breast”? In answer, we can observe one profound insight (of many) about one of the immutable, universal laws, with just a little “plinking” on a basic piano keyboard. 

Please observe the diagram above, that of a piano keyboard, with its black and white notes. We will focus on the white keys only, for now. Note that there is a repetitive pattern of “letter names” given to those white keys, each of which, when played, sounds a unique musical pitch, or frequency. The keys are named “A” through “G”, and then that pattern of names repeats “an octave higher” (or lower). Without us getting too technical (or bored, I hope), please briefly observe with me the “speed of vibration”, the “frequency”, of two of the piano’s notes — the two “A”’s, shown above:

“The Lower A” (the “A” key to the left) sounds at a frequency of 440 Hertz (Hz), a measurement for “cycles (or complete vibrations) per second”. (Incidentally and interestingly, this 440-Hz, modern-day “concert A” runs four cycles per second faster than the mystical 436-Hz “A” that served as a cornerstone of the work of Pythagoras over 2,500 years ago.)  The “A” that is an octave higher than “A-440” (i.e. the “A” key shown to the right, on the keyboard diagram above) vibrates at a frequency that is exactly twice the speed of the lower “A”, or 880 Hz. Why is this important – to people in general, and to Attunement practitioners and enthusiasts, in specific? It is because the undeviating octave demonstrates a crucial element that binds together the entire Universe, us and all of “creation”.

The Law of the Octave — named for the eight primary, “white” keys that sit between and include, for example, an “A” and the next higher “A”. This universal law recognizes that musical notes sounding an octave apart – with frequencies that are multiples of two (2), relative to each other — have a closely kindred harmonic nature, a unique tonal relatedness that epitomizes unification. This can be heard distinctly when notes in octave are sounded.

Please note that the octave is not, by any means, the only relationship between pitches. Wait until you read Tony’s expositions on the “Perfect Fifth”, harmonics, overtones, and the other sonic wonders of the sound world that come into robust play in health, healing, and Attunement. However, the uniquely “divine” design of the octave illustrates the cohesive nature of the entire, endless frequency spectrum.

Now, here’s where things get pretty cosmic! An “A” vibrates at 440 Hz; and the “A” an octave higher, vibrates at twice the speed (880Hz); the next, higher “A”, an octave above, vibrates at twice that speed (880 x 2, or 1,760 Hz); the next higher “A” at 3,520 Hz, then 7,040 Hz; and so on — continuing to infinity. Along the way, these associated frequencies surpass the audible range and move into the ranges of radio; TV; microwaves; infrared, visible, and ultraviolet light; x-rays, etc. Yet, at any octave, a multiple of (in this example) “A-440” remains in harmonic concord with every other octave of “A” that resonates throughout the heights of the infinite frequency spectrum.

This energy spectrum vibrates, not just throughout the aforementioned range of higher frequencies, but at an equally infinite range of lower frequencies, as well. Infinite literally means infinite, after all.  As we observe frequencies below “A-440”, we find kindred octaves resonating at exactly one-half 440 Hz (440 divided by 2, or 220 Hz); then the next lower “A” at 110 Hz, then at 55Hz; and so on — continuing to infinity. At 27.5 Hz, we near the lowest frequencies audible to humans and approach the range of Schumann Resonances, electromagnetic waves that exist between the earth’s surface and the earth’s ionosphere. When tonal frequencies (like a musical sound) “slow down” sufficiently, they become “rhythms”.

A rhythm that is near and dear to each of us is our own heartbeat – something we just can’t live without – beating at a “frequency” around 1Hz, or one beat per second. Our bodily processes (and that of many organisms on earth) adhere to daily circadian oscillations, coordinating our capacities to the earth’s day-night rhythms. The earth rotates around its axis at a frequency of once per day, revolves around the sun at a frequency of once per year, and responds to the monthly frequencies of the moon’s cycles. Our sun revolves around its sun, as far as we can tell, and the Milky Way itself marches majestically — and for us, QUITE slowly –through the heavens, true to its own frequency that encompasses millions of years. So, to the best of our present understanding, there are infinitely fast vibrations and infinitely slow ones.    

Putting aside, for a moment, the Grand Scale of It All, WHY is all this directly significant to us, and how does it affect our everyday lives? We have a glimpse into the why and how, brought to us once more by that Law of the Octave.

The Law of the Octave reveals a constant, orderly, powerfully resonant framework that governs and integrates the entirety of this infinite, cosmic frequency spectrum – the entire Ocean of Motion that is our Universe. The immutable design governed by the Law of the Octave connects all energy. And our own connectedness with all energy – through the thousands of resonating processes in motion at any given moment, in our own physical, mental, emotional and spiritual-expression capacities, and in our world – is living evidence of the actual, tangible attunement that, in truth, we share with the Creator and with all of Creation.

Oneness.

The practice of Attunement, as so ably and comprehensively introduced by Tony in this book, helps enrich the sacred resonance of our capacities with the Creator, while helping remove dissonance from the creative fields that penetrate and surround us. Whereas “sound therapy” alone uses the relatively slow-moving (though miraculous) realm of sound itself as the source of upliftment, the overall Attunement process engages a much wider (potentially infinite), higher-frequency spectrum of harmonics, one that encompasses the range of audible sound, plus so much more, while differentiating itself through countless, simultaneous Life processes. Sound healing, and any other process that is in resonance with Spirit, is a harmonious aspect of that Spirit substance, and therefore provides, at least to some extent, a resonant field for the energy and blessings of that Spirit.

Sound acts as a carrier wave of sorts for the Attunement current — toning and amplifying the emanations of the endocrine glands, relaxing and entraining the nervous systems, clearing the mind, soothing emotions, and helping one to release various resonances with external stresses. The playing of sustained sound also can be used by an experienced practitioner as an instrument to amplify his or her perceptions. As the sonic and “Spirit” ranges of energy entrain together during an Attunement session, their synergy — true to the Law of the Octave — also activates harmonics in all frequency ranges, from the infinitely high to the infinitely deep.

We are literally moving in harmonic resonance, in attunement, with all of Creation. We not only live in the “universal ocean of motion”, but we play radiantly conscious roles in the flow of its Currents, as we allow our every action to entrain with the infinitely high and deep Tones of the Creator. We are an integral part of the Cosmic Symphony, for sure. Let’s join Tony now, for an in-depth expose of just how integral we really are!  

I hope that you have thoroughly enjoyed PenDell’s music presentation, even if you are not musically inclined — although I can’t imagine there is anyone who does not hum a tune now and then and generally enjoy music.  Perhaps he has imparted to you a deeper appreciation of music, and of musicians.  I welcome any comments you wish to share, which I will forward to my renown guest author.  In my next post “Are We Ascending Yet ” I will return to the theme of ascension. Until then,

Be love.  Be loved.

The Crown Portal to The Temple of Light

 

OVER THE LAST SEVERAL DAYS I’ve been dipping down into the bottomless pit of knowledge to explore the current activities in the world of medicine. Having spent more than half of my life in the healthcare field, I have a lingering sense of responsibility to help out friends who now look to me for guidance in these troubling pandemic times.  I assure you, the pit of knowledge is truly bottomless, filled with all sorts of conflicting opinions and tons of data one could spend hours and more studying and breaking down for easy assimilation and comprehension, a rather exhausting and futile undertaking . . . most of the time . . . and not always fruitless.

I waded through filthy waters full of deceit, lies, conspiracy, manipulation, censure, hype of all sorts, and sheer greed and avarice—though some of the water was clearer containing helpful information, insight and wisdom.

As I sit down to complete this week’s blog post, I feel a little used up mentally having just labored through several scientific interviews and medical news releases, and emerged from conversational interchanges on social media that deteriorated into argument and ridicule.  I had to delete the entire conversation in order to cut short the unravelling thread.  People are confused and fearful for their health and lives.

Yet this is the world into which we have chosen to incarnate and offer our services, a world mixed with the beautiful along with the ugly.  I embrace it all with love, forgiveness and compassion even as I put it out of mind now and return my attention to the place where I live and to which my soul longs to fully ascend.  Thank you for listening to my process. Now to my post.

◊ ♦ ◊ 

IN MY LAST POST, THE GREAT TREE, I shared a passage from the gospel of Mary Magdalene, or Miryam as her Master Jeshua called her.  She was his Beloved Companion, after all, and he loved her more than he loved any of his other disciples, for which they resented and envied her, and questioned him.  His answer was “Why can I love her more than I love you?”  It was because she returned his unconditional love sevenfold, understood and kept his teachings more than they did.  I think we all tend to love most those who understand us and love us unconditionally.

Because of her love for Jeshua, Miryam ascended to the level of “Apostle of apostles” and the “One who knew the All.”  Her soul ascended to the Crown at the Eighth Bough of the Great Tree and was utterly consumed by Spirit, represented and embodied by a woman clothed with the sun who dwells in this realm of eternal life. Miryam became the sun, and in her “responsive radiance” spent the remainder of her earthly journey in silence, because it was in the silence that her Master had spoken to her and revealed the truths inherent in the Great Tree. What a profound experience and sharing of her intimate relationship with Jeshua, her beloved Lord and Master.

THE TEMPLE OF LIGHT

I am profoundly and deeply moved, because I am very much aware of this Great Tree in my own body temple, and the presence of Spirit at the Crown, which Uranda described and designated “The Temple of Light,” and to which he assigned seven steps of ascent. 

Now, I’ve always thought of the seventh step, Love, as the destination of the ascent.  However, Love is a step, the final step, leading to the Temple of Light, the implication being that the destination of the seven steps is the eighth landing, so-to-speak, above the seventh step. From this step one may ascend, as Miryam did, to the “Eighth Bough,” and in so doing enter the Temple of Light.  When one does enter his or her Temple of Light, one is filled with the radiance of the Spirit, consumed by the Sun and embraced by the Woman clothed by the Sun: the Great Mother. So much profound symbolism in these passages.

I would like to share a grand perspective of our total Humanity and whole holy Being, followed by something very personal about my experience of Attunement with Love, a gift from God given to the world through Uranda.  I first spoke of this in my book SACRED ANATOMY sixteen years ago, so this isn’t the first time I share it.

◊  ♦ ◊

From SACRED ANATOMY:

      I mentioned life’s radiance as emanating from a point “within.”  We commonly think of our spirit as being within us, implying that I am inside my body.  But my experience has actually been that my body is inside me, in much the same way as the Earth, a relatively small deposit of cosmic rock with a molten core, is situated at the center of a vast magnetosphere.  This magnetosphere is known to flare outward and away from the Sun, like giant wings upon which our planet soars against the powerful and unrelenting currents of Solar Wind, eternally and irresistibly drawn toward its origin in the Sun but never quite able to come any closer to it.  Rather, the Sun comes to the Earth and to all the planets, engulfing them in its radiant light and solar winds.  In fact, if we take into consideration the entire outreach of the Sun’s rays, the planets are all contained within the Sun completely engulfed in its colossal magnetic force field as condensed particles of solar plasma.

  (Earth is surrounded by a system of magnetic fields, called the magnetosphere. The magnetosphere shields our home planet from harmful solar and cosmic particle radiation, but it can change shape in response to incoming space weather from the Sun.)  

This is also true of each one of us.   Our physical bodies have been described as “frozen light,” and are but a condensation of about a teaspoon of mineral ash expanded by air and water at the center of a rather large biosphere, which is said to extend some forty feet above, below and all around the physical body.   That biosphere is but the lower half of a larger force-field, symbolized by the figure 8.  The top half represents the invisible domain of spirit in the heaven and the lower represents the visible reflection in the earth of the perfect design of man in the heaven.  The two are joined together manifesting the oneness of heaven and earth.  This joining together may also be seen as a “double ring” marriage between the Beloved Lord or Lady with his or her triune human capacity for incarnation, which only death of the body can part them.

The Torus Energy Biosphere

      The upper spiritual half continually radiates the love of the Beloved to and through the lower physical half on the right side and draws upon it for response to the radiation up through the left side, ever lifting the body upward and keeping it upright and mobile.  Your body does not stand up solely on its feet.  It is, rather, suspended by a “skyhook” on a silver chord of pneumaplasm that connects it with the angel who dwells in the heavenly realm of spirit, the angel I am and we each one are. There is a compulsion in physical flesh to be drawn upward and inward toward the positive center of Being, just as the earth and all the planets are drawn toward the sun. I sense this focal point connecting the upper half with the lower to be located just above the head.

      Access to this point is through the heart, the fourth level of our sacred anatomy connecting the three above and the three below.  We move in the direction of our heart’s response. When the heart ponders the presence of the Beloved within long and longingly, sending unceasing, rich and passionate currents of love response upward to this One I AM, the body itself begins to feel the ebb and flow of these ascending and descending currents of energy.

      Perhaps I can attempt to describe the feeling in my heart toward this focal point of radiance above my head—of which I have become keenly aware during meditation and “self-attunement” as a spiritual practice—as clearly one of  being drawn and repelled at the same time. 

      On several occasions I have had the urge to ascend upward and somehow nestle inside the irresistibly warm and enfolding orb of this light, but could never seem to come any closer to it. 

Then, on one occasion, while it seemed as if I was finally about to disappear into this point of no apparent magnitude but definite position—where my heart had already ascended in utter ecstasy—this orb of condensed light suddenly descended and dispersed itself into and through my outer form, as a mighty rush of wind, filling my whole body both within and round about with light.

The MerKaBa

(This is the actual process and dynamic of ascension: the descension and full incarnation of the angel into the body temple, an experience that seems like an ascension. It is actually the descent of spirit down into the body temple transmuting it into a temple of light, symbolized by the six-pointed Star of David, also known as the MerKaBa.) 

The sheer rush of it caused my vocal chords to explode with the most awesomely haunting and penetrating sound I have ever heard, let along sung, and yet my lungs were not even engaged in this forceful release of whatever it was—the wind of spirit, I suppose.  It came from above my head as a real, palpable substance, and then seemingly exploded its vibrational essences through my vocal chords, giving them little if any choice but to release this sacred, transforming and transmuting sacred sound.

      In the instant this sound was released my whole outer being seemed to suddenly shift to a higher vibratory level and became completely engulfed inside a radiant sphere of substance that seemed to be made of pure light. I found myself suddenly in another dimension as though my body had ascended to the next vibratory level above the one in which we now function in these earth bodies. The strangest thing about this was that it seemed as though this sphere had been there all along and I had not noticed it. I had known about it but I had not experienced it until that moment when it revealed itself as this vibrational shift occurred and the atmosphere around my body became filled with the substance of Love, intensifying the force field. Then I became aware of it, suspended, as my body was, inside of it.  It seemed as though my feet were not touching the ground and I had the most powerful déja vu experience of my entire life. “This is where I belong,” I recall being assured in my heart. “This is Home.  This is who I am, this magnificent and powerful spirit enveloping and animating this human form.”  In the wake of that ecstatic moment was a deafening silence. 

      I did not want to leave that silent moment.  And I never shall leave it in consciousness for as long as I shall live, and I return to it often. I have had a couple of similar experiences since then—significantly enough while singing solo during worship services and therein focusing a creative current—but never quite as powerful as this first time. 

      I later came to understand that the first experience was that of a vibrational dam of resistance in my heart breaking, releasing a rush of current. After that initial surge of release, the experience became one of a natural and easy flow of spirit.  I recall how I had a challenge keeping my feet on the floor as I began to sing.  I had to deliberately look into the eyes of someone in the gathering—(another angel of sound)—in order to stay grounded.  I also recall feeling that this was the easiest and most natural experience I had ever known.  

      This focal point of connection truly is, without a doubt in my mind and heart, our ordained place to live, and we must—we can and we will—all return to it one day.  It is definitely available for experience when the conditions are just right, and therein is the key.  We must be willing to create, or occasion, the right conditions in which this magical alchemy of ascension may occur, which only the spirit and substance of love can provide sent upward in utter abandon to one’s Lord.

      The spiritual practice of Attunement is one way of creating such space. This is the source of inspiration behind this writing.  This is the work, I believe, we have all come here to do—our Father’s business—and it will not be complete until we return to this vibrational place together as One Body of many members in agreement and accord with the One Archangelic Spirit whose body it is.

THE GREAT TREE

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

In the Gospel of the Beloved Companion, Miryam (Mary Magdalene), in the mournful wake of their Master’s ignominious crucifixion, comforts a gathering of his disciples and shares with them what, in the author’s opinion, is one of the most profound teachings of this entire Gospel.   

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. 

“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 DARNESS THAT IS THE ROOT OF THE TREE. BUT IF YOU FREE YOURSELF, YOU WILL RISE AND REACH THE LIGHT THAT IS ETERNAL LIFE.”

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, A5CEND AGAIN TO BE FILLED WITH THE LIGHT AND G00DNE55 THAT IS THE 5PIRIT.  AND I WAS FILLED WITH A FIERCE JOY AS MY S0UL TURNED TO FIRE AND FLEW UPWARDS IN THE FLAMES FROM WHENCE MY MASTER 5HOWED 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.

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. 

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 a 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, down, inside and out 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, which is comprised of seven hormone-secreting glands.  These glands provide our high-frequency angelic being 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 Spirit of Love. 

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

Be love. Be loved.

The Two Trees of Eden

“Adam came into being from enormous power and wealth, but he was never worthy of you, for had he been worthy of you he would not have died.” —Jesus, from The Gospel of Thomas¹

ACCORDING TO THE BIBLICAL RECORD OF CREATION handed down to us in the Book of Genesis, among the many trees in the garden planted “eastward in Eden” were the “tree of life” and the “tree of the knowledge of good and evil.” Both trees grew “in the midst” of the garden.  Now, the garden is the heaven of consciousness, and the East is from whence our tomorrows come. A garden is where seeds are planted for tomorrow’s harvest. So this entire setting relates to the seeding of consciousness for tomorrow’s creations.

For the duration of this writing, let us think of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil as being the double helix DNA molecule—in which case I will call it “the tree of the knowledge of good and evolve,” in so far as our flesh arises out of the unfolding evolutionary cycles of the genetic code as the DNA spiral turns to impart the sequence of genetic information to messenger molecules (mRNA) for the further generation of protein, the building blocks of the body temple.  The fruit of this tree becomes deadly only when we interfere with the evolving processes of life, which can only result in evil creations, distortions of the true design for living forms, which will not be sustained by life and live forever.  So, our DNA spiral very much resembles a tree with code sequences as leaves that, if even touched, much less altered, will result in death.  When left alone, they will continue to evolve according to the Divine Design of life and bring forth appropriate forms for a changing environment.  

Now, let us think of the “tree of life” in our bodies as being the sacred anatomy of our endocrine system, comprised of seven hormonal glands that are under the control and direction of Spirit, the incarnate angel, differentiated into seven vibrational frequencies that nourish them. These sacred parts of our physical anatomy serve as “lamps of fire” (as John of Revelation describes the “seven spirits before the throne of God” set in heaven) that shine the light of Love and Truth into the world through our living.  We can eat freely from the tree of life by giving expression to the spirits of Love, such as patience, thankfulness, compassion and joy, to name but a few.  

We could say that these “trees” are in the midst of the garden of our consciousness, as are our human capacities—remembering that our incarnating capacities are not limited to flesh and bone but include our energetic field that extends out to include, for example, the seven Chakras.  It is all encompassed by the heaven of our consciousness.

The two trees are planted eastward in Eden, indicating they have something to do with the future.  It is from the code sequences set in the DNA spiral that our future bodies roll out into the eternal present.  And it is by way of our seven endocrine glands that we continue to express the radiant energy of life itself through hormonal crystals, messengers of light.  It is truly a tree of life. 

All this to say there are endless and eternal cycles within cycles at work in the Creative Process of Life constantly bringing forth the world of Creation in which we live and have our being . . . and with our human intellects we can’t even begin to comprehend them, much less manage and control them, albeit we tinker with the idea, as well as with the genetic code sequence itself that determines the shape and functions of outer forms.

I am reminded of a warning man was given in the garden, repeated here by Eve to the serpent: “But of the fruit of the tree which is in the midst of the garden, God hath said, Ye shall not eat of it, neither shall ye touch it, lest ye die”— to which the serpent replied, “Ye shall not surely die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods, knowing good and evil.” He lied, and has been lying ever since—significantly and with dire consequences in our day with this rampant genetically-modified coronavirus and experimental and risky spike protein injection. 

We have dared to touch and manipulated the DNA tree to create a virus designed to attack human lung tissue and kill its host . . . and I ask, to what end, other than our own? It’s utter insanity.  

ROGUE CREATOR BEINGS?

There’s another story I would like to visit that may provide background and context for what I have presented above, and that is the possibility of rogue activity on the part of the creator being(s) who made the “clay man,” as a friend in England calls him. There are two creation events in the first and second chapters of the Book of Genesis respectively, as I’ve written about in a previous post. These two trees that grew in the midst of the garden eastward in Eden, put there by the “LORD God,” are mentioned only in the second chapter of Genesis—in which is also recorded this second creation event.  In this event the “LORD God” forms a man from clay and imbues him with life, whereby he becomes a “living soul.”  The stated purpose for creating this man is found in this passage: “and there was no man to till the ground.”  In other words, man was created to be a servant and manual laborer, a slave.

There has arisen a controversy over these two separate events, one in which God creates Man “in his own image and likeness” as the final touch to his magnificent and “completed” Creation, and a second event in which the LORD God—a group of God beings called Elohim—forms a single man from the dust of the ground.  This event is soon followed by the creation of woman from a rib taken out of the side of the man. 

SUMERIAN ORIGIN OF GENESIS

Now, this is no fairy tale made up by Moses when he wrote the Book of Genesis.  It is said that his creation story was based on ancient Sumerian scriptures, some of which were the retelling of mythical oral traditions and stories.  We can discern a lot from myths, as celebrated author and mythologist Joseph Campbell has elucidated, which are metaphors and stories that point to ancient historical events before a written language came into being and usage.  

Along this line, I want to share with you a letter I received from one of my blog followers and close friend, Donald White, in response to my previous post.  Here is his comment that speaks to this controversial rogue behavior, as well as the two creation events, and the conversation Eve had with the serpent which I cited above.

The Genesis story you’ve referred to here, as to whether God as a plurality: “Let US make man in OUR image…”, or “gods” (prior wise ancients, or advanced aliens) devised mankind through genetic manipulation, is perhaps the key to your conclusive consideration of what’s taking place in the evolutionary cycle we’re now experiencing.

Having studied extensively the Sumerian/Babylonian “Myth of Creation” from which 6th Century BC exiled Israelite, Judah, leaders formed their Genesis biblical story, I’m impressed by the quite detailed Creation stories of this early civilization.

Of course I’m referring to the extant Sumerian cuneiform texts that speak of this godly set of individuals, male and female, who were mankind’s creators and masters. They were referred to as the “Anunnaki,” a reference to the common father of the primary Sumerian god who was known as Anu.

As the story goes (as interpreted by Zechariah Sitchin) the two principal sons of Anu were Enki and Enlil who vied competitively for control of the world at that time, and both sons figured heavily in the Creation saga.  Enki was a great scientist and, with his medically-trained sister Ninharsag, the ‘mankind’ project was advanced as a way to lighten the work load of the Anunnaki as they developed their kingdom on earth. The project had received the “go-ahead” from a council of peers and particularly Lord Enlil who was the head Anunnaki leader.

What appears to be genetic manipulation was utilized by Lord Enki and Lady Ninharsag to alter the genes of our primate ancestor to ‘jump-start their evolutionary process. . . .  Mankind, after several notable failed genetic experiments, was born!

Following this story line (and contrary to the moralistic biblical tale), the “Fall of Mankind” wasn’t due to human misdeeds (Original Sin) but was due to a falling out between Lord Enki and his brother, Lord Enlil.  Apparently, Enki decided to improve the new human being so that procreation could commence amongst the fledgling human community. The ability “to Know” (procreate) caused a stir amongst the Enlilites who realized they could no longer control the burgeoning population of the new sentient being.

The human servants in the Mesopotamian “Garden of Eden” were then cast out of the elite Anunnaki community because, God forbid, they might learn all about how to build their own civilization!

A saying of the Master Jesus comes to mind: “I have yet many things to say unto you, but you cannot bear them.”  This may be one of those things, which, even for many of us, are too much to bear, especially if beliefs prevent exploration and critical thinking.  Personally, I am interested in the possibility that those creator beings, advanced aliens—or rogue “fallen angels”—have reincarnated today and are bent on completing their unfinished genetic experimentation, perhaps even attempt to terminate the “mankind project.” Authors such as David Wilcock (THE SYNCHRONICITY KEY) and Graham Handcock (FINGERPRINTS OF THE GODS) write about the reincarnation of historical figures, group-incarnations, and even simultaneous multiple incarnations.  

MY TAKE ON ALL OF THIS

“Unworthy” Adam was created by the “LORD God” from clay, not in the image and likeness of God, and therefore not an immortal spiritual being.  Adam became a “living soul” when the  LORD God breathed into his nostrils the breath of life—by whatever creating process was thus employed.  Adam and Eve had another son to replace Abel who was slain by his brother Cane.  His name was Seth, from whom descended Noah, who was “perfect in his generations” and “found grace in the eyes of the LORD.”  This was a time when men “began to call upon the name of the LORD.”  It may well be that with Seth began a redemptive cycle with angels, spiritual Man, incarnating on earth in human beings, the “immortal and invisible images” of God the Supreme Being and Creator of the universe.

WE WRESTLE WITH POWERS AND PRINCIPALITIES

Be that as it may, we live in a day when angelic hosts are incarnate on planet Earth and men entertain angels unaware and wrestle unknowingly with powers and principalities.  As Paul wrote in Ephesians 6:12, “For we do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places.” 

Let me conclude this post by saying that the current events on planet Earth are being moved by a greater Power and Force than the powers of darkness, all in the design and seasons of the Lord, who can even use lies, deceit (aka “noble lies”)², and genetic manipulation to achieve his purposes.    As in the days of Noah, flesh has greatly multiplied upon the face of the earth and “the thoughts and imaginings of men’s hearts are only evil continually.”  A reduction of the human population by our own undoing, painful and uncomfortable as it is, can be seen as a “good” consequence of eating the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. 

This generation, it is said, is reserved unto fire, the purifying fire of love.  Just look out at the events happening on Earth and see that this is so.  While wind-driven fires destroy forests and peoples’ homes and towns, and floods wash away peoples’ lives, at the same time a tidal wave of love is rising in the hearts of men and women everywhere.  An apocalypse of angelic light is underway bringing joy to a new world dawning as an old world passes away. 

It is a time of woe for the inhabitants of the earth and a time of rejoicing for those who dwell in the heavens.  Let us dwell in the heavens with compassion in our hearts for our fellow men, women and children who inhabit the earth, hundreds of thousands dying from multiple catastrophic events.  Those of us remaining now face an escalating climate crisis as the Earth moves on in its transmutation to a higher density, frequency and form.  Let love radiate without concern for what the future may bring, as it will be perfect in the eyes of the Creator. 

In my next post, “The Great Tree,” I will share a passage from The Gospel of the Beloved Companion by Jehanne De Quillan in which Jeshua shows Mary Magdalene a vision of a “great tree” which she proceeds to ascend up to its crown.  Until then,

Be love.  Be loved.

Steps of Ascent 3: Our Return to Eden Underway

THROUGHOUT THE RECORDED HISTORY of man’s sojourn on Earth—and it has been a sojourn, a temporary visit to the lower planes of being—a pattern has been weaving itself around the theme of resurrection and ascension of the body of mankind from out of the depths of perdition and death and into the restored Edenic state of eternal life, not merely in some imagined hereafter but here and now while we have living, breathing flesh to bring it and to enjoy it. It seems evident, by the direction this civilization is headed, that our sojourn in these lower levels of mere existence is near completion. We are being awakened, if not by Spirit then by dire circumstance, to the necessity of ascending to a higher frequency and a more heavenly state of consciousness.  We are being invited to return to Eden.

       We would not be strangers to Eden, however, for it has only been a few thousand years since we left the garden state.  We carry the memory of it all in our collective subconscious.  It is all being recalled to memory.  We also have available to us in the vibrational realm of  heaven the same divine technology of the Creative Process that was operative in Eden and throughout the biblical history of our sojourn through the “valley of the shadow of death.” This is the same divine alchemy that many of the great prophets, including Jesus, evoked and manifested in the many wonders of “miracles” which they wrought.  That technology is available to us today and the memory of it lies not too deeply buried within our collective memory.  

       I invite you to read the following excerpt from The Forgotten Books of Eden as edited by Rutherford H. Platt, Jr. and see what happens in your heart of hearts as you read. We mentioned Seth earlier, the son of Adam who replaced Abel (slain by Cain) and brought with him the seed from which sprang the lineage leading up to Abraham and ultimately to the birth of Jesus the proclaimed Messiah.  There is a description of Seth’s family in chapter eleven from the Second Book of Adam and Eve: 

      “But Seth and his children did not like earthly work, but gave themselves to heavenly things; for they had no other thought than praises, doxologies, and psalms unto God; and within the garden, or when they were sent by God on an errand, or when they were going up to heaven.

      “For Seth and his children, by reason of their own purity, heard and saw those angels.  Then, again, the garden was not far above them, but only some fifteen spiritual cubits.  Now, one spiritual cubit answers to three cubits of man, altogether forty-five cubits.  Seth and his children dwelt on the mountain below the garden; they sowed not, neither did they reap; they wrought no food for the body, not even wheat; but only offerings. They ate of the fruit and of trees well flavored that grew on the mountain where they dwelt. 

    “Then Seth often fasted every forty days, as did also his eldest children.  For the family of Seth smelled the smell of the trees in the garden, when the wind blew that way.   They were happy, innocent, without sudden fear; there was no jealousy, no evil action, no hatred among them.  There was no animal passion; from no mouth among them went forth either foul words or curse; neither evil counsel nor fraud. . . .

“But they contained their children and their women every day in the cave to fast and pray, and to worship the Most High God.”

Earlier on in the First Book of Adam and Eve, the fourth and eighth chapters, we read these accountings of the changed conditions outside the garden of Eden:

        “But Adam and Eve wept for having come out of the garden, their first abode.  And, indeed, when Adam looked at his flesh, that was altered, he wept bitterly, he and Eve, over what they had done. And they walked and went gently down into the Cave of Treasures.  And as they came to it Adam wept over himself and said to Eve, “Look at this cave that is to be our prison in this world, and a place of punishment!  What is it compared with the garden? What is its narrowness compared with the space of the other?  What is this rock by the side of those groves?  What is the gloom of this cavern, compared with the light of the garden?  What is this overhanging ledge of rock to shelter us, compared with the mercy of the Lord that overshadowed us?  What is the soil of this cave compared with the garden land?  This earth, strewed with stones; and that, planted with delicious fruit-trees?”  And Adam said to Eve, “Look at thine eyes, and at mine, which afore beheld angels in heaven, praising; and they, too, without ceasing. But now we do not see as we did: our eyes have become of flesh; they cannot see in like manner as they saw before.”  Adam said again to Eve, “What is our body today, compared to what it was in former days, when we dwelt in the garden?”

  “. . . Then Adam wept and said, ‘O God, when we dwelt in the garden, and our hearts were lifted up, we saw the angels that sang praises in heaven, but now we do not see as we were used to do; nay, when we entered the cave, all creation became hidden from us.’

        “Then God the Lord said unto Adam, ‘When thou wast under subjection to Me, thou hadst a bright nature within thee, and for that reason couldst thou see things afar off.  But after thy transgressions, thy bright nature was withdrawn from thee; and it was not left to thee to see things afar off, but only near at hand; after the ability of the flesh; for it is brutish. . . .'”

      This account of life after Man’s exit from Eden is, of course, a mythical legend handed down through the Ancients.  However, it does serve as a reminder that life on earth the way we know it today has undergone drastic changes over the eons of time.  We have no record of how life was in the fabled Garden of Eden, nor after the legendary fall, except in myths such as this where the key players compare how things were in Eden to how they were after they left the garden, or were expelled as the story recounts.  We only have this sentence from Genesis that gives us a clue about the conditions then and speaks volumes about our state of consciousness before the fall:  “And they were both naked, the man and his wife, and were not ashamed.” (Genesis 2:25) 

      We were given the promise of a fresh start in a new heaven and a new earth in St. John’s Book of Revelation:

And I saw a new heaven and a new earth: for the first heaven and the first earth were passed away; and there was no more sea.  And I John saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God out of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.  And I heard a great voice out of heaven saying, Behold, the tabernacle of God is with men and he will dwell with them, and they shall be his people, and God himself shall be with them, and be their God.  And God shall wipe away all tears from their eyes; and there shall be no more death, neither sorrow, nor crying, neither shall there be any more pain; for the former things are passed away.  And he that sat upon the throne said, Behold, I make all things new. And he said to me, Write: for these words are true and faithful.

Thus it is and thus it shall be.  I welcome any thoughts you may wish to share. Until my next post,

be thankful.

Steps of Ascent 4: How much can we bear?

Blessed is one who existed before coming into being…. You are pleased when you see your own likeness.  When you see your images that came into being before you did, immortal and invisible images, how much can you bear?  — Jesus, The Gospel of Thomas¹

♦◊♦


READING THROUGH the first two chapters of the Book of Genesis in the Bible, one cannot help but notice that there are two different incidences that speak of the creation of man.  The first one is in the 26th verse of the first chapter of Genesis:

“And God said, Let us make man in our image, after out likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.”  

     This may be taken as the creation of Spiritual Man, made in the image and likeness of the Creator.  The second incident, as recorded in the second chapter of Genesis, relates to the creation of Adam, physical man, by the LORD God:

“…and there was not a man to till the ground….  And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed . . .to dress it and to keep it.”

THE “LORD God”

     Who is this “LORD God” that appears on the scene?  In her legacy work, THE BOOK OF GRACE, biblical scholar and spiritual author Grace Van Duzen goes to some length to elucidate:

A new name is introduced here: the LORD God. The capitalization in such case conveys plurality,  a focus of beings, whereas the use (later) of Lord indicates divine presence in a single being.

Rev. Scofield, in his Authorized King James Reference Bible, says:

The primary meaning of the name LORD (Jehovah) is the self-existent One.” Literally (as in Ex. 3.14), “He that is who He is, therefore the eternal I AM.” But Havah, from which Jehovah, or Yahwe, is formed, signifies also “to become,” that is, to become known, thus pointing to a continuous and increasing self-revelation. Combining these meanings of Havah, we arrive at the meaning of the name Jehovah. He is “the self­ existent One who reveals Himself . . . .”

It is significant that the first appearance of the name Jehovah in Scripture follows the creation of man. It was God (Elohim) who said, “Let us make man in our image”. . . but when man, as in the second chapter of Genesis, is to fill the scene and become dominant over creation, it is the LORD God (Jehovah Elohim) who acts. This clearly indicates a special relation of Deity, in His Jehovah character, to man, and all Scripture empha­sizes this. 

The name Lord, or Jehovah, is introduced immediately after the completion of the six-day cycle of Creation which was crowned with the presence of Man, the means whereby God could “live and move and have his being” on this planet in conscious expression. That is the purpose of man, to reveal God through the indwelling presence in himself — not as a stereotyped, preordained blueprint but to allow, moment by moment in living, a New Heaven and a New Earth to take form. 

Herein is the secret of God’s “rest” [on the seventh day], the state of being which became possible as human beings remained in harmony with the Creator, the Law which operates the universe.  Man was not created an automaton, without free will; that would not be an image and likeness of the Creator. On the contrary, all the wonder and diversity of the cosmos was available to be given form on Earth according to the capacities of this new creation, and on the Seventh Day that provision was in place. It was, moreover, a cycle when a “proving” was necessary to complete the creation.

I think we’re still in the proving stage, and not faring too well in it.

WE REALLY DON’T HAVE A CLUE

     Now, I find all this most intriguing, as others have as well.  Quite frankly, no one really knows what occurred back then.  Some have even speculated that superior beings from outer space came to earth and seeded the human race in various and different locations as genetic experiments, each genetically different with unique physical characteristics, cultures and languages, perhaps to see if they would find a way to meld together as one global human race — a scenario to which I could easily ascribe watching travelogue programs that take you all over the globe to visit the colorful array of nationalities and life styles that exist in near isolation from one another except for media technology and air travel. 

(Watching the spectacular and inspiring 2020 Winter Olympics high-tech opening ceremony in Tokyo, and hearing John Lennon’s “Imagine” sung so passionately by everyone, including John Legend and a couple of other popular vocalists, the world is “as one” for these young athletes from different nations.  I was deeply touched. This upcoming generation just may pull it off — peace and harmony, that is.)  

REMEMBERING OUR PAST LEST WE REPEAT IT 

      There has been for some time a question concerning the two different stories in Genesis relating to the creation of Man which suggests rogue behavior on the part of one or more of the creator beings comprising the Elohim conclave.  I’ve given this considerable thought and meditation, and I resonate more with Grace Van Duzen’s view of the creation story than with the rogue scenario.  Whether critical or speculative inquiry, the fact is that if there’s been any rogue behavior on this planet, it’s been on the part of man himself — and it is precisely this rogue behavior by us that needs to cease before Eden can be restored, along with our partnership with God as co-creators of living forms on Earth . . . according to Divine Design and not human designs.

      Let us not fool ourselves by thinking our past errant ways are gone and forgotten, because this rogue behavior is still going on everywhere on the face of the earth, notably in laboratories where medical scientists tamper and experiment with the genetic code of the double helix DNA and its partner RNA which contain and deliver respectively Life’s instructions for creating and assembling the building blocks of physical matter.

WE’VE OPENED PANDORA’S BOX . . . INTENTIONALLY—FATHER FORGIVE US FOR WE KNOW NOT WHAT WE DO  

      It all sounds so ingenious and commendable . . . until an experiment gets out of hand and a man-made virus, genetically coded to be more virulent and aggressive by a method called “Gain of Function” (GOF) — for the purpose of developing an appropriate vaccine in the event of a pandemic — is reportedly released accidentally in order to create a global pandemic.  As I understand it, this dangerous research was shut down here in America only to be transferred to a lab in Wuhan by leading medical scientists in the USA, as well as funded.  (Here’s the stunning LATEST DISCLOSURE on the origin of the virus.  Scroll down to read the Story at a Glance, although the video is well worth watching.)

      How much disclosure such as this can we bear before we wake up?!  How much risk are we fool enough to take until we learn that we cannot partake of the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil — or evolve, as is the case with the genetic code of the DNA spiral and escape the death-dealing consequence?  The DNA molecule is created by Life and belongs to Life, and we have no business tinkering with it.  We do so at our peril, as it is proving out.    

A RESTORATIVE PROCESS IS UNDERWAY

       There is a restorative process underway, and has been in progress ever since the Fall, to bring us back into alignment with the Great Spirit Creator and into the garden state.  At least two attempts have been made, the first of which was through Abraham and his immediate lineage that brought forth the nation of Israel and Moses, who led the children of Israel out of bondage in Egypt and to the “Promised Land” flowing with milk and honey.  But that was as far as human beings at the time moved with that cycle. 

       The cycle of movement through the physical plane was brought to a point of completion, and failure, with King Solomon, who let his success and empirical power, along with his collection of feminine royalty, consume him.  This level is the domain of the Spirit of the New Earth, and there was great expectancy on the part of the tribes of Israel, for example, to come to a new land flowing with milk and honey, an expectancy that was realized after forty years of rebellion and consequent hardship in the wilderness.

      Throughout the Old Testament there is an expectancy of the “coming of a Messiah.” This attempt from the level of the physical plane failed to restore humanity back to God and closed with a promise of a Messiah who would come and restore the kingdom of heaven on earth. But it would not be an earthly kingdom.  It would be a heavenly kingdom that resides within each one, indicating that the garden state is first a spiritual reality based on spiritual consciousness and only secondly, and consequentially, an earthly experience of Paradise.

     A restoration in human consciousness, then, is what is underway — and it began with the incarnation of the Lord of Love 2000+ years ago in the Middle East — which today has become a hotbed of religious wars and human suffering.  The sacred fire of Love is at work through the Spirit of Purification cleansing the body of humanity of hatred, greed and fear, along with a host of other demons . . . and not just in the Middle East. 

     How much more of this cleansing can we bear?  How much of our past can we bear to remember, forgive and move on from.  More pertinent to the Master’s words above: How much of the radiance of our own Being, the “immortal and invisible” image of God revealed through us on Earth, can we bear?  How much peace and joy and happiness?  How much truth can we bear?  How much are we willing and ready to let go of our beliefs, our concepts and opinions, move beyond them, in order to come to the place of knowing and living the truth of life that is love; love of God and of one another?  Oneness with the All that Is?

     The Master told his disciples I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.”  Can we bear them today?  The Holy Spirit, the promised Comforter, is coming now upon the clouds of human consciousness and is bringing to remembrance all the things the Master Jesus said and taught his disciples when he was on earth.  Authors and spiritual teachers abound repeating almost verbatim his gospel of love, of compassion, of forgiveness and of thankfulness.    

Listen! The Comforter speaks in our hearts to our minds: “Be still and know that I AM , , , , and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”

     I will continue with this provocative and essential consideration and meditation in my next post where I will share the powerful and pragmatic conclusion in a meditation on The Way of the Master.  I welcome your thoughts.

Transmutation of Planet Earth Revisited

“When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and the stars, which thou hast ordained; what is man, that thou art mindful of him?  and the son of man that thou visitest him? For thou hast made him a little lower than the angels, and hath crowned him with glory and honor.” (Ps 8:3-5)

◊♦◊

I LIVE IN AWE of the order and harmony in this vast Universe, and I love  contemplating the design of things, both physical and vibrational, and by what power and force they function and move about—like how do the yellow purslane in my wife’s flower beds know when the sun rises and sets so they can open and close with its rhythm and timing?  Mysteries such as this give me a sense of wonder at the magic of Nature.  It’s in my karma, I suppose.  I’ve done it before in prior incarnations and I’m doing it again in this one.

When I first met my spiritual mentor, Lord Martin Cecil, the Fifth Marquees of the House of Exeter in England, in 1968, my heart was split wide open and my mind lept for joy with what I was hearing him articulate.  For eighteen enlightening and engaging years I sat at his banquet table feasting on every marcel of clarifying truth that trumpeted through his resonant voice, and learning how to live them.  Those were transformative times. Today I find deeper understanding of what he brought forth in his plethora of services when I revisit them.

In 1979 he gave a rather in-depth and detailed consideration of the design, both physical and spiritual, or vibrational, of planet Earth.  Borrowing the transcription from my friend David Barnes’ blog The Great Cosmic Story, I published excerpts of it on my blog in increments starting in June, 2020 and took it up again in my post of July 19th, 2020.

In his presentation, Martin speaks forthrightly to incarnate angels everywhere who are emerging in an apocalypse of light, speaking truth to power and handling situations in the world with assurance, integrity and spiritual authority. 

For a comprehensive appreciation of the consideration, I recommend that you take the time to visit these two posts and read the excerpts before reading the one I am reposting here.  I am publishing here the portion of Lord Exeter’s consideration taken from my post of July 25, 2020 for meditation.

As before, read his words with an open and still mind and quiet heart. Open to the current that weaves truth and wisdom through them.  It’s in the heart where spiritual essences are discerned and understanding occurs.  

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

How simple and simply wonderous is the Creator’s design for our home among the stars. The heavens and the Earth, the invisible and the visible, are inseparable one.  The last paragraph of this consideration holds the key to how the process of transmutation of the total planet unfolds with our participation.  As always, I welcome comments from my readers as I enjoy and value others’ thoughts along these lines. Until my next post,

Be love. Be loved.
