Remembering Paradise . . . Finale

Whether it happened or not I do not know; but if you think about it, you can see that it is true. —Black Elk        

I will bring this series to a close with excerpts from Richard Heinberg’s MEMORIES AND VISIONS OF PARADISE, including his Epilogue .

This haunting memory is found among the myths of the Omaha Indians, who, along with the entire Native American Nation, have held the sacredness of their Mother Earth in their hearts and in their culture:

HOLDING THE EARTH SACRED

The Omaha Indians of the North American plains also believed in the heavenly or spiritual preexistence of human beings prior to their appearance on Earth in physical form. “At the beginning,” they say, “all things were in the mind of Wakonda.” All creatures, including man, were spirits. They moved about in space between earth and the stars (the heavens). They were seeking a place where they could come into bodily existence ….  Then they descended to the earth. They saw that it was covered with water. They floated through the air to the north, the east, the south and the west, and found no dry land …. Suddenly from the midst of the water uprose a great rock. It burst into flames and the waters floated into the air in clouds. The hosts of the spirits descended and became flesh and blood. They fed on the seeds of the grasses and the fruits of the trees, and the land vibrated with their expressions of joy and gratitude to Wakonda, the maker of all things.”

A Native American vision from chapter 6 — Prophecy: The Once and Future Paradise

One of the most eloquent modern enunciations of the Native American vision is contained in these words of Hopi elder Dan Katchongva:

Hopi is the bloodline of this continent as others are the bloodline of other continents.  So if Hopi is doomed, the whole world will be destroyed. This we know, because the same thing happened in the other world. So if we want to survive we should go back to the way we lived in the beginning, the peaceful way, and accept everything the Creator has provided for us to follow ….

My father, Yukiuma, used to tell me that I would be the one to take over as leader at this time, because I belong to the [Clan of the] Sun, the father of all the people on the Earth. I was told that I must not give in, because I am the first. The Sun is the father of all living things from the first creation. And if I am done, the Sun Clan, then there will be no living thing left on the Earth. So I have stood fast. I hope you will understand what I am trying to tell you.

I am the Sun, the father. With my warmth all things are created. You are my children, and I am very concerned about you. I hold you to protect you from harm, but my heart is sad to see you leaving my protecting arms and destroying yourselves. From the breast of your mother, the Earth, you receive your nourishment, but she is too dangerously ill to give you pure food. What will it be? Will you lift your father’s heart? Will you cure your mother’s ills? Or will you forsake us and leave us with sadness, to be weathered away? I don’t want this world to be destroyed. If this world is saved, you all will be saved, and whoever has stood fast will complete this plan with us, so that we will all be happy in the Peaceful Way.

And finally, our renown author’s vision and rationale from his EPILOGUE:

DID AN EARTHLY PARADISE ONCE REALLY EXIST, or is it the product of human imagination? Even now, at the end of our investigation, we must acknowledge that this is a problem that may never be settled by archaeologists or anthropologists. On one hand, it is impossible to prove the historical reality of a Golden Age by physical evidence alone; on the other hand, the material evidence by no means rules out the possibility, and the less tangible evidences of myth and culture simply will not allow us to dismiss it. Of course, the answer we settle on depends largely on our definition of what Paradise was, is, or should be.

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

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

Of course, there may be some trace of the First People’s actions in Mysterious ancient megaliths, and some record of their affairs may be preserved in myth and legend. Nevertheless, these are fragmentary and ephemeral clues. And yet the vision of Paradise—be it distorted, misunderstood, or even imaginary—has somehow insinuated itself into the vital core of every religious movement and every culture’s literature and social ideals. Whatever the myth’s origin—historical reality or mass delusion—it now has a life of its own in the collective unconscious.

The principal thesis presented here—which is really only a re­statement in modern terms of what spiritual teachers have been saying for millennia—is that the memory of Paradise represents an innate IPO and universal longing for a state of being that is natural and utterly fulfilling, but from which we have somehow excluded ourselves. Per­haps our most useful new clue to this lost state of being is contained in he modern study of altered states of consciousness and, in particular, of the near-death experience. The essence of Paradise is, as we have seen, equivalent to what various traditions have termed nirvana, ecstasy, divine union, and cosmic consciousness. It is the condition of the absence of the separate human ego with all its defenses, aggres­sions, and categories of judgment.

This interpretation may seem like an obvious one, but it has been only recently that developments in several disciplines have made it so. In the field of psychology, for example, the systematic study of alternate states of consciousness did not really begin until this century, and the greatest advances have taken place only within the last twenty years. In anthropology, it has also been only in recent decades that we have come to respect the wisdom of tribal peoples and to take seriously their beliefs about the nature of reality. The field of comparative religion—which has opened a view to the fundamental similarities of the core teachings of all spiritual traditions—has likewise only begun to come of age. All of these developments converge, enabling us to leave behind both the dogmatic religious ideas of the Middle Ages and the simplistic evolutionary assumptions of the last century. We are thus free to attain a new vision not only of the mythic past, but also of our own miraculous potentialities in the present and future.

One of my purposes in writing this book has been to bring together the principle myths of Paradise, Fall, catastrophe, and purification. But another was to recall the texture and nuance of the spiritual worldview of ancient and tribal peoples. Their perspective, so at odds with our modern way of looking at things, may contain some of the very elements that we in postindustrial civilization need if we are to build a sustainable, regenerative culture.

We are living not in a static world that affords us endless time for leisurely academic discussion, but in one that is busily undermining its own biological viability. We have lost our sense of proportion, our sense of the fitness of things, and our sense of being contained within a greater Knowing that provides our lives with meaningful context, and to which we are responsible not only for our actions but for our motives and values as well. We have lost, in short, the sense of the sacred. The Paradise myth is the account of this loss of the sacred dimension, this loss of innocence. And if it contains clues to help us
understand why we have come to this precarious juncture in history and how we may go about regaining what we have left behind, then a retelling of the story may now be a worthy undertaking.

Somehow the timing of this retelling seems to have an almost apocalyptic significance of its own. Many generations have felt that they were seeing the culmination of history, but never has any genera­tion had better reasons for feeling this way. Perhaps we are indeed living in the time prophesied in every tradition, when the profane world of human history and the miraculous world of myth are to be somehow reunited.

We seem to have come very far indeed from the state of innocence and communion with Nature described in the Paradise myths. Depletion of the Earth’s ozone layer, pollution of water and air, loss of topsoil and forest cover, the greenhouse effect, and mass extinctions of species all bespeak a way of existence tragically out of touch with the pulse of the planet on which we live. And burgeoning crime, mental illness, and drug abuse seem to signal some deep estrangement of society from the nourishing aspirations of the human spirit.

Our world is filled with complex political, economic, social, and environmental problems. Yet we cannot expect to solve these prob­lems without first addressing the values and motives that produced them. And how are we to approach the clarification of human values and motives? Surely, we must look to the human psyche itself–that mysterious realm whose suprarational powers and dynamics find first expression in myths, dreams and visions. We are presented therefore with the apparently paradoxical likelihood that the examination of ancient and seemingly irrational stories may be one of the most practical pursuits available to us in the modern world.

Perhaps, if we are willing to become partners once again with Heaven and Nature in the realization of an already existing design that transcends self-centered human purposes, then memory and vision may converge in a realized Paradise in which the tensions that pres­ently bedevil us—tensions between humanity and Nature, heart and mind—may be dissolved in a universal spirit of accord. If we can hear and obey a voice from the timeless source of myths and dreams, there may open before us an age not of technologically engineered comfort and prosperity, but of miraculous beginnings—a new Creation-Time. And perhaps it is only the mysterious power of Creation itself that will permit us to survive, and at last to fully live.Fin

I hope you have enjoyed this series as much as I have enjoyed creating and presenting it. By some of the comments I received, I know that Richard Heinberg’s thoughts and visions found resonance with several. MEMORIES AND VISIONS OF PARADISE, along with his several other books, are available at Amazon.com. For a more current Heinberg vision and perspective, view the video clip below. 

As always, I welcome your thoughts and comments by email. Until my next post, already in the hopper,

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

 

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

SIGNIFICANCE AND HISTORY OF THE NUMBER 40  

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

TRANSFORMATION

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Hello Octogenerians! 

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

The Cancer of Overpopulation

I’m reading Dan Brown’s latest release INFERNO, and I must say the scenario depicted in the story is uncomfortably realistic. The bottom line is the blatant fact that the human species has terminal cancer simply based on the etiology and definition of cancer: the uncontrolled replication of cells. In other words, exponential growth with no checks and balances.

Here’s a passage from the book that gave me pause. It’s Bertrand Zobrist, the villain and mad scientist in the story, who’s solution to overpopulation and inevitable demise of the human race is to create a plague by releasing a virus into the water, explaining to Dr. Elizabeth Sinskey, the biologist who heads up the World Health Organization (WHO), the data behind his doomsday scenario.

“Consider this. It took the earth’s population thousands of years–from the early dawn of man all the way to the early 1800’s–to reach one billion people. Then, astoundingly, it took only about a hundred years to double the population to two billion in the 1920’s. After that it took a mere fifty years for the population to double again to four billion in the 1970’s. As you can imagine, we’re well on track to reach eight billion very soon. Just today, the human race added another quarter-million people to planet Earth. A quarter million. And this happens every day–rain or shine. Currently, every year, we’re adding the equivalent of the entire country of Germany.”

Based on these mathematical determinants alone, by the middle of the current twenty-first century, the population of Earth will have reached nine billion people. It is estimated that the earth can comfortably support about four billion people with her natural resources. Is this the “elephant in the room” that no one wants to talk about? Dr. Sinskey defends her organization against Zobrist’s accusation that the WHO is ignoring the problem by citing its recent spending of millions of dollars sending doctors into Africa to deliver free condoms and educate the people about birth control. Zobrist counters by citing the activity of Catholic missionaries who poured in behind the WHO and told the Africans that if they used the condoms they would all go to hell. The result was a new environmental issue of landfills overflowing with unused condoms. As the conversation unfolds, Zobrist points to a passage in the works of  Florentine Renaissance historian, Niccolo Machiavelli:

“When every province of the world so teems with inhabitants that they can neither subsist where they are nor remove themselves elsewhere, the world will purge itself.”

In my lifetime, the population of Earth has nearly doubled. Will my children and grandchildren and their babies see and experience the painful but inevitable purge of the human species? Are we now poised on the precipice of Dante Alighieri’s INFERNO, book one of his Divine Comedy, with its seven “rings” of hell and sea of human bodies wallowing in their own waste and begging for death to end their misery? And, as Dante proposes, must we pass through hell and purgatory in order to arrive at Paradise? In other words, is there a Golden Age to follow this dark age we seem to be entering?

Every Tuesday now as the garbage truck stops in front of our house to dump our trash dumpster into its huge belly, I wonder how long it will take us to run out of space for landfills. In my youthful days, we had a burning barrel for paper trash, dug a hole for cans and bottles, and carried out food scraps in a slop bucket to feed to the hogs and chickens.  But those days are long gone. Thankfully, we have recycling today to take care of much of our paper and other solid waste–and we have a compost bin for our food waste and back-yard garden–if only everyone took responsibility to collect their recyclables and deliver them to the collection sites.  I see so much laziness and lack of caring for the Earth in our town. I want to knock at doors and say “Wake up! Don’t you see where this carelessness is headed?! Take care of your Home!”

I will leave you with this encouraging fact in the world of physics. For every disintegrative process there is an integrative process taking place. It’s a universal principle of cosmic economy. Some of us have the job of managing and stewarding the disintegrative process, and others of us are employed in the integrative process (and there is a new integrative process underway, has been for some time only the news media doesn’t cover it.) It’s the nature of the Creative Process to “waste not, want not,” as my wife says and her mother before her — and balance is maintained at all cost. So will it be for our human species and planetary Home among the stars.

As always, I welcome your thoughts and comments. Until my next post,

Be love. Be loved.

Apocalypse of Light 2013, Part 5: Questions Answered, page 5, Cosmic Consciousness

Deepak Chopra

Deepak Chopra

 

Deepak Chopra defines cosmic consciousness very succinctly: 

In cosmic consciousness the psyche or individual consciousness expands to a cosmic or universal level. The small personality with its identification with the body, the mind and relationships makes a radical shift so that the self now identifies with the non-local, timeless existence of the cosmos. So it is called cosmic consciousness. —Deepak Chopra

Walter Russell expands on the topic — and more — in the “QUESTIONS ANSWERED” part of his book THE MESSAGES OF THE DIVINE ILIAD.

Walter Russell

Walter Russell

 

Q. Did Jesus know all things? I mean by that, did He have omniscience?

A. Yes, He did have omniscience. He was undoubtedly the only man who had known complete Cosmic Consciousness. 

Q. Can a cosmic conscious man see Jesus as a person?

A. No one has ever seen the Person of Jesus-or Beethoven-or you. The body alone can be seen and the Person alone can be known.

Q. Are Jesus and God the same?

A. Yes, they are One-and so are you One with God when you know that you are.

Q. What is the Soul?

A. Soul is the desire force in Mind, the will to extend desire from the Light to manifest the Light
in form.

Q. How does desire manifest itself?

A. Without desire, the seed would not germinate into form. The Soul centers the seed in the pattern of desire to express form. The seed records the pattern of the body as it changes throughout eternity. The
record changes according to the desire of the Soul-will to become a different body. 

Q. Could you give an example?

A. Yes. The pattern of a tree in Maine where the winds blow hard is recorded in the seed of that tree. The same ruggedness of pattern will be recorded in the seed and repeated as the same kind of tree when the seed again unfolds. 

Q. Your statement that trees have Souls as well as human beings is rather extraordinary. Would you explain it further?

A. The Soul is universal in all things. It does not belong to man alone. God is Light. The Soul is DESIRE in the Light. It might also be termed the WILL.

Q. How does animal life differ from vegetable and mineral life?

A. What you call animal life is not rooted to earth. It has entirely different bodies which must interchange in order to continue. The vegetable kingdom is rooted to earth. The mineral kingdom is the earth itself.

All of these function alike. They all begin and end in the same way. 

Q. What are their relations to each other? Which comes first?

A. The mineral kingdom comes first-the planet is all mineral until sufficiently cooled by the coming of water. Interchange between water and minerals begets the vegetable kingdom.

Interchange between the vegetable and mineral kingdoms begets the animal kingdom. Each of these three depends upon each other or survival. Each is an extension of the other. 

I marvel at the depth and height of Russell’s understanding. A man who truly tapped the secrets of the universe and articulated the simple truth of it all.

I will end this series at this point to explore some of the profound perspectives and transcendent vision of Hugh Malafry as shared in his landmark and timely novel The Light at Lindisfarne. So, until next post,

Be Love. Be loved.

Apocalypse of Light 2013, Part 3: The Age of Transmutation, Page 2: New Power For Science

Eagle Nebula Pillars of Creation

Eagle Nebula Pillars of Creation

Hydrogen can be harvested from the air we breathe.  How? I’ll let Walter Russell answer that question. 

NEW POWER FOR SCIENCE

Man’s transformation by science will take much time, but it can begin NOW. A beginning is a reversal of direction. To reverse the direction of the downward plunge is to begin to climb into the heights.

The first step for science is to insulate its countries from attack by other countries and thus save the lifeblood of its nations and return destroying armies to useful pursuits. As very little time is needed to bring this about after the principles involved are thoroughly understood, the threat and fear of war should pass from the mind of man forever. Even if war should start before this had been accomplished, it could not go far before it could be remedied.

The second step should be to give the world a new and inexhaustible fuel. Free hydrogen is the logical supply because free hydrogen is the basis of the four space octaves. The entire population of ten planets like ours could not lessen its total because Nature balances the withdrawals of gases with replacements continuously. Nature’s replacements for withdrawals of solids consumes the amount of time taken to grow them.

Nature may take a million years to grow forests into coal. Coal is multiplied nitrogen, for nitrogen is a gas of carbon. Nitrogen can be transmuted continuously from the atmosphere in unlimited quantities forever.The atmosphere is composed of nitrogen and oxygen. Oxygen is carbon twice removed, just as nitrogen is carbon once removed. Likewise hydrogen is carbon one octave lower, but not removed tonally. Gyroscopically, carbon and hydrogen are the same, for their planes of structure are identical.

Hydrogen could, therefore, be transmuted from the atmosphere in unlimited quantities by merely changing the gyroscopic plane of nitrogen to the 90-degree angle of wave amplitude upon which hydrogen rotates.

It would simplify scientific thinking if science would view the universe of “matter” and “space” as gravity which accumulates generoactive predominance into hydrogen in the first three-and-a-half invisible octaves of matter that man today thinks of as space.

The visible universe begins at the middle of the fourth octave and continues to carbon—its generoactive maximum—where fourth and fifth octaves meet at wave amplitude.

From there on, radioactivity begins its depolarizing process but the “bodies of the octaves grow bigger” and keep within the visible range while dying, just as a tree, or man grows bigger of body during declining years.

If, therefore, science would form the habit of thinking of  matter and space in terms of the carbon octaves and the hydrogen octaves it would simplify their work oftransmutation mightily

Science should also form the mental picture of the visible carbon octaves as but a pea-sized volume of solid
matter suspended in the center of a great auditorium of rare gaseous matter millions of times greater in volume. Then realize that the very small globule of many solid elements of the carbon octaves are wound up from that vast volume of the hydrogen octaves of space.

Matter thus wound up is sequentially unwound into gases of the hydrogen space octaves, and its action-reactions are recorded in the inert gases which born each octave.

Thus matter gyroscopically emerges from space and is “swallowed up” by gyroscopic unwindings into the “space” which borned it, as has been rightly conceived.

“Space” is not empty – nor is it an “ether.” The space which surrounds every particle of matter in every wave field is the negative half of the wave field. The solid nucleus is the positive half. Both halves are equal in potential but vastly unequal in volume.

The next step in habit-forming thinking is to think of matter as being the accumulation of the same thing—wave motion—rolled up in time layers like a snowball—the final layer being called carbon but all being different conditions and pressures of the same thing.

Add to this thought that the universe consists of wave fields within wave fields—stellar, solar and atomic in measure—but of a like “substance” and of a like structural formation. Nature has no separate method or process of creating systems. The heavens clearly evidence the unwinding of mass by the way of rings and systems, but the senses do not so clearly record the winding of mass as a basis for systems.

During this whole process, each succeeding element becomes another phase of the same thing throughout the whole journey. The change of attribute is due solely to thdifferent relations of pressures and that is determined by polar relations.

Nature does not transmute one element into another. She merely makes her progressive change of elements by a continual readjustment of her gyroscope.

Elements are tonal. One wire of a piano can become a whole octave by changing its pressure relations sufficiently to either multiply or divide its vibration frequencies. Everyone is familiar with the fact that placing a book on top of an organ pipe lifts its tone just one octave higher.

Such effects are not transmutation. They are merely changed dimensions of states of motion. All of the notes which the organist plays are but one tone multiplied or divided in rhythmic pressure relations

That is the way the chemist of tomorrow should think of the elements, and not think of them as different chemical substances with different attributes. Chemistry should be based upon the idea of gyroscopically changing the north-southeastwest polarities of one tone to increase or decrease its time frequencies. The piano tuner uses an instrument to wind up his pressures from lower to higher tones. The chemist should use the electric current and solenoids as his tuning instrument.

The very thought structure of tomorrow’s chemist should very radically change in many other respects too
numerous to describe. One of these is to eliminate from his thinking the idea of one thing becoming another. That is not Nature’s way

In Nature, one tone ceases to be and another becomes. In other words, one formula for a patterned wave vibration ceases when another measured vibration begins. We must also carry this thought farther by not thinking of cessations, beginnings and endings. We must think of them as awakened continuities which we can “put to sleep” when we have no further need of them, or “awaken” when we have need of them.

The electric current of the universe is ready to motivate any tone as we desire to awaken it, just as the electric current of the organ is ready to awaken any tone when the organist desires to awaken it.

We should not think of sodium and chlorine as having become sodium chloride—or that sound has become silence—for each of them is and always will be. We should think of each of them as another note played on the universal organ. We change its tuning pattern if we want new isotopes which Nature has not yet given us—or we unite two unbalanced halves to secure stability—or produce explosives by multiplying unbalance.

That is Nature’s way. Carbon unwinds to nitrogen because of the predominant power of east-west negative polarity. Likewise, nitrogen unwinds to oxygen. That does not mean that carbon has ceased to be, or that it has become nitrogen and oxygen. It means that carbon still is but it has changed its pressure dimensions, just as John Jones is the same John Jones that he was ten years ago.

Nature demonstrates this fact by “transmuting” nitrogen and oxygen back again into carbon. Every root of all vegetable growth rewinds both of them upward again into carbon. Likewise, the bodies of all animals rewind oxygen and nitrogen into the proteins of their flesh, bones, horns and hair.

The roots acquire the complex formula for rewinding into violets, pine, oak or apple trees—or man or bird—from the inert gases of their octaves which have recorded the unfolding of many ideas of Nature in the seed of these ideas.

As nature unfolds from the seed to record its patterns in moving body forms, it simultaneously refolds into its seed in order that the refolding can be repeated in like patterns.*

And we will continue this trend of thought next post.  Isn’t this great reading! Are you learning anything you didn’t already know?  I am.  Until we meet again,

Be love. Be loved.

Apocalypse of Light 2013, Part 1: “Let there be light!”

Sun rising

We have entered the Winter Solstice when our Mother Earth tilts her head once again toward Father Sun in her yearly cycle around our Star.  Light has begun to increase as the days grow longer in anticipation of Spring.  But this will be no ordinary Spring, just as it is being no ordinary Winter.  It’s snowing in West Texas and New Mexico even as I write this post and after a long drought in those parts.  The Mississippi River has been drying up due to a severe lack of ice melt and rain in the northern states.  The river’s been too shallow for some of its ordinary boat and barge traffic.  It isn’t expected to rise much as the current snow and rain fall up-river doesn’t appear to be adequate enough to make a huge difference.  Changes will be forced upon our transport systems if the river dries up altogether . . . but she won’t.

Weather patterns all over the globe have changed drastically.  The Earth’s magnetic poles are shifting.  Ice caps are melting fast and I wonder if it’s not in anticipation of a correction underway in the wobble of the Earth’s axis, in which event their colossal frozen weight will no longer be needed to compensate for the wobble.   As I said, this will be no ordinary Winter, nor Spring.  Is the planet perhaps moving through a renewal process back to being a a tropical garden of Eden once again.  It could well be so. You see, all of Creation is in the loving and care-full hands of the Creator.

A species in danger of extinction, man sees a dying world through his myopic view and failing vision.  His view is after his own survival and his vision is not of a New Earth but of an old world passing away along with the old man that created it atop the living, breathing soil of Gaia. How fragile does his world of concrete prove to be when Her layered crust quakes. There is little if any sense of right-expectancy in the hearts of human being the world over because man knows deep down inside that he has wronged and raped his Mother; that the world which he has built on her back rests upon a bed of sand, the shifting sand of monetary greed, rather than the solid bedrock of truth and generosity.   

But wake up, O Man! Turn around! For a Golden Age is at hand. Earth is not dying, my friends. Oh no, she is rather coming alive with renewal, and her awakening process is creating quite a stir on all her continents and throughout the fabric of her kingdoms, all the way from her misty atmosphere above down through her watery oceans to her molten core.  She stirs and stretches, yawns and breathes deeply as she greets the New Day, the New Age, the Age of Aquarius.  

Aqua, water!  The first of the Four Forces of Creation—water, air, earth and fire—and they come in that order of dominance, always working in concert together even as each one takes a turn at the leading role for its season. Winter, Spring, Summer, and Fall—all come and go on cue as the planet cycles through the seasons in Her solar orbit.

Fire and water sun and ocean

First the water washes in at the beginning of a new creative cycle, and the air blows in right behind it, overlapping the water cycle.  Our neighbors along the East Coast got a wallop of these two forces not long ago.  The tropical winds of Hurricane Sandy brought the tidal waters of the Atlantic ocean to and over the eastern shores of America, and the water has not ceased falling from the sky, again driven by the air currents of the trade winds and jet stream.  Rain, rain and more rain greets the New Year here in these southern parts of Louisiana and all across the South from California to Florida—snow storms across the North from Washington state to Main and the New York harbors.  Lots of water. An appropriate way to begin the year of our Lord 2013 and the Age of Aquarius. 

After the cold water splash in the face, the warm air of Spring will call forth the green grass, the leaf buds, and the fragrant flowers out of the Earth. And after their grand show, Summer will bring the fire of Sol to return the flaming, falling foliage back to the ground to seed and fertilize the soil for the next Spring.  What a dance to behold between the water, the air, the earth and the fire of Creation.  

O Man, wake up and open your eyes to see the New Day!  Put aside your fear and your rage, your wars and your poverty, your greed and avarice and your isolated insanity. Let there be love in your heart.  Let there be light in your eyes. Let there be friendship between the brothers and sisters of your global community. Behold, all things are being made new. Be thou made new as well, whole and holy.  A Golden Age dawns and with it a New Heaven refreshes and reseeds consciousness from above and a New Earth is waiting to be born out of it here below—and you have the privilege of experiencing the dance and playing a part in the magic of Creation. What a grand day to be alive and in the midst of it all! 

Here comes the Sun

Open up your heart and let your spirit, the Spirit of God, move upon the face of these troubled flood waters. Open wide your mouth and sing your creative command to them, even as you joined with your Creator in the Beginning when the Morning Stars sang together and the Sons of God shouted for joy: “Be still! Let there be Light!”  Be the light of your world.

Be love. Be loved.

In Search of the Holy Grail of Free Energy

Free “green energy” technologies have been either bought out or forthrightly destroyed along with their inventors and their research laboratories.  What we are allowed to use for our energy are filthy carbon producing coal, toxin-producing petroleum, fracking-derived natural gas, and dangerously high-risk atom-smashing nuclear energies —all very costly methods of extracting energy from the Earth.

Unlike the natural world that runs on limitless energy derived from fusion, our scientists and industrialists continue to insist that fission is the best way to harvest energy from the Universe by burning Earth’s natural resources and smashing atoms. It’s time for a new approach to harvesting energy from the the natural world that doesn’t entail destroying it . . . along with ourselves. 

Over the last couple of centuries up until the present day, rogue scientists and inventors have developed clean energy technologies.  Some of them have been implemented, like solar panels and windmills.  Michael Faraday (1791-1867) gave us electromagnetism.  NikolaTesla (1856-1943) has given us electrical powered automobile technology.  John Bedini and Jim Watson (1984) gave us the “Free Energy Generator” he called the “Energizer.”  Dr. Royal Rife and John Crane (1930’s) gave us the “gated Rife frequency” technology as an absolute 100% cure for cancer. Way before these inventors, ancient Egyptian physicists  gave the world “Pyramid Power,” which I’ll be exploring shortly in this blog.

I just noticed a post on Face Book about “cold fusion” and the two men who discovered it, Stanley Pons and Martin Fleischmann.  “…they’d observed low-energy nuclear reactions, or LENR, at the atomic level that generated excess heat, holding out the promise of ‘cold fusion’ that did not require the blast furnace of nuclear fission as part of the energy-creating process.” This is what I’ve been looking to surface.

More recently Foster Gamble of Thrive Movement has brought forward the promising technology of the Universe itself.  It is called the “Torus pattern of energy flow.”  When you have the time, visit his blog and see what he’s up to.  I’ll write more about Foster Gamble’s timely contribution to the search for clean, “free” energy. But first I want to do this book review because truth is often more easily seen when it’s interwoven within a story, and this novel does take you to the very heart of what “free energy” is really about.

The following  review is of a recently published book about the mad rush to find and a conspiracy to possess the “Holy Grail of Free Energy.”  This is one of my favorite lines from the story, mouthed by the main character:

“You do not smash a river for power, nor should you smash an atom, but learn to let a river flow through it.”

Book Review: The Light at Lindisfarne,  by Hugh Malafry

Another engaging novel by the author of the Blue Shaman Trilogy, The Light at Lindisfarne is a timely release, a story the likes of which has not been written to date by any author I’m aware of. Nor could it have been written by anyone but Hugh Malafry, knowing his style of visioning potential futures for humanity with his creative imagination. His story telling  reflects a perspective that originates in higher dimensions of consciousness than most of us live out of on a day-to-day basis and lands firmly on the ground of contemporary life in the “mind-made world” of competition, power mongering, and survival.  

The story is set in post World War II Europe and opens in Germany in the wake of Adolph Hitler’s death in May of 1945, a bitter winter month in those parts.  Weaving the ancient alchemist and Grail Quest themes, the search for the philosopher’s stone that releases the fire of transmutation, and the legendary Sangreal (Royal Blood) into the story—a theme that Hitler himself was lured into in his mad quest for the “Holy Grail” of free energy that would give him and his Fourth Reich Germany ultimate power and dominion over the world—Malafry develops a scenario of unfolding world events – political, scientific, religious, cultural and geophysical – that transcends the three-dimensional model of life on a planet that is very much in sync with galactic evolution through its unwavering pattern of response to its solar point of orientation.  As the sun goes so goes the planet, even to the ultimate stage of evolution of becoming itself a sun – not, however, what we commonly think of as a flaming mass of gasses, hotter and hotter as you go toward its center.  On the contrary, Malafry dares to depict our sun as a cool blue star enveloped in an atmosphere of red-hot conflagration, in much the same way as the blue center of a flame of natural gas is cool at its core.  

But that’s all about the surface details of the story, the setting of a rather familiar landscape of physical matter and material existence.  The more subtle essence of the story, the implied if not articulated truth behind the surface play of events, indeed moving them toward their evolutionary destiny, is the apocalypse of light divine through humanity, the return of the long lost Science of Mazaroth, and Man’s true dominion over the elements and creative forces of water, air, earth and fire. This is a story about the evolution of human consciousness and the potential ascent of Man to a higher level of function and mastery, indeed his apotheosis and subsequent assumption of his original commission as co-creator and steward of the natural world on planet Earth.  Having come to its final hour, human consciousness is faced with the inevitable choice: evolve or destroy yourself and your world — the story’s cliff-hanger to be developed later on in a promised sequel.  

The press release describes the context and theme of the story . . .

An energy starved world – an esoteric technology that cannot be replicated – a secret locked in the psyche of one old man – an intrigue to acquire unimaginable wealth and power – the struggle of an ancient order to grasp a world slipping away: In his latest novel, The Light at Lindisfarne, (published by AuthorHouse), Hugh Malafry pits the technocracy of modern science and politics against ancient esoteric wisdom, in a quest for the key to unlock the creative forces inherent in nature and man.”

As the story goes:

Swedish physicist, Albert Weiland, widely considered the Einstein of his age, presents the world with a problem: a demonstrable source of unlimited free energy his peers cannot replicate, in a device the press calls his Grail Reactor. To make matters worse, it works only in Weiland’s presence and he will not say why. When his peers renounce his arcane explanations as medieval mysticism, Weiland kindles an inextinguishable light in the ruins of Lindisfarne Abbey, and challenges them to solve its mystery for the answers they seek.

The event pits nation against  nation, precipitates a conspiracy to acquire this esoteric technology for a new world order, reveals the agenda of the shadow government, and leads into the snare Weiland has set for his would be exploiters.”

Hugh aims his novel at the current trend of deteriorating world events:

“We are at the turning of an age,” says Malafry, commenting on why readers will connect with his novel. “Within decades without a new source of energy to drive its productions industrial civilization will hit the wall. Meanwhile, populations increase, resources diminish and everyone wants more of everything. What could possibly go wrong?”

The Light at Lindisfarne evokes man’s final quest for the holy grail of power, and appeals for the wise use of creativity, imagination and ingenuity to shape the future of civilization. “If we fail it will foremost be a failure of the creative imagination, a failure to come to terms and seek first the source of light, life and power in ourselves.”

Global Warming a Galactic Event, Part 5: Our Ecological Demise

So far in this series on global warming, we have visited the solar system through the eyes and meticulous research of David Wilcock, the results of which are written up in his 2011 book The Source Field Investigations.  In the last post we reviewed the data on Earth changes that are not caused by industrial pollution.

 I’ve said that we are only destroying ourselves by polluting the earth, our water and our air.  Earth will take care of herself as she moves through evolutionary changes occurring by reason of the passage of our Milky Way Galaxy across an energetic threshold into an intensified strata of cosmic energy.  She will go on to experience her rebirth and renewal, with or without us.  

Ours is a species that is in danger of extinction, along with the hundreds of other species that are going extinct on almost a daily basis.  We decry their loss and, understandably though needlessly, take on the blame for their extinction, including our own impending demise, when this is all a natural part of the evolutionary creative process.  New forms of life are coming in and old ones going out all the time, but life cannot be extinguished.  As an enlightened poet once put it, “Unconquerable life prevails.”

In this post I want to look at how we are destroying our ecology and, with that life-support system, our natural habitat and ourselves.  As much as I like to  keep a positive and optimistic outlook and try to avoid  the negative and pessimistic doomsayers, when I viewed this interview of Chris Hedges by Bill Moyers, which my wife brought to my attention, my heart sank into deep sadness at what we are doing to the natural world to maintain our mad consumption of Corporate America’s productions fueled by sheer greed.  I felt a jab of pain in my stomach as I watched mountain tops in the beautiful Appalachians of West Virginia being blown up for coal by corporations that find it cheaper than mining for this filthy fuel source.  Our Mother Earth is being ripped open for her minerals. 

 Here’s the intro to the interview: 

There are forgotten corners of this country where Americans are trapped in endless cycles of poverty, powerlessness, and despair as a direct result of capitalistic greed. Journalist Chris Hedges calls these places “sacrifice zones,” and joins Bill this week on Moyers & Company to explore how areas like Camden, New Jersey; Immokalee, Florida; and parts of West Virginia suffer while the corporations that plundered them thrive.

These are areas that have been destroyed for quarterly profit. We’re talking about environmentally destroyed, communities destroyed, human beings destroyed, families destroyed,” Hedges tells Bill.

“It’s the willingness on the part of people who seek personal enrichment to destroy other human beings… And because the mechanisms of governance can no longer control them, there is nothing now within the formal mechanisms of power to stop them from creating essentially a corporate oligarchic state.”

“For approximately 150 years after the industrial revolution commenced the world has been in a situation where it had sufficient surplus to simultaneously promote growth and prosperity. By the mid 1990’s our growth was at the rate that we needed about 1.25 earth masses to sustain consumption. It has steadily gotten worse as consumption continues unabated. Now we are in a situation where we no longer have sufficient surplus to promote growth and prosperity. This requires a paradigm shift. Mr. Hedges is demanding that all of us complicit in this growth, take a step back and think about consumption in a new context – a perhaps moral/sacred context – and each of us should now say – enough is enough.” (Viewer BigMoo’s comments)

What you are about to see and hear is not pretty, but see and hear it we all must.  Everyone who cares about life and living on this beautiful planet needs to sit for 51.5 minutes and face the ugly facts of the consequences of our consumerism.  Don’t put this off.  See it now or at some other time today.

It may well be that this is how we as a species are meant to face the ultimatum Mother Nature and planet Earth have placed before us: evolve or perish.  It is obvious that many of our own species are perishing and will perish in massive numbers in the descending spiral of destruction as this madness continues unabated.  

A growing number of human beings, thank God, are moving in the ascending spiral of evolution in an apocalypse of light that is lifting our species to higher levels of consciousness.  Everything is not lost.  The Creator has larger plans for His/Her body of Mankind on Earth.  So, weep not for the loss of the old consumptive man and his old polluted world.  The new creative Man is rising in the midst of death and destruction and is about the business of creating a new and healthful world. The media simply is not interested in what’s ascending and growing, but only in what’s descending and perishing.  There is cause for rejoicing, which I look forward to writing about in future blog posts.

I have an excellent post in the making for my next Healing Tones blog: a book review of Hugh Malafry’s latest novel, The Light at Lindesfarne.  (Click on the link to read the press release just released today). I’m looking forward to telling you all about this timely novel.  So, stay tuned.  Until then, 

Be love. Be loved.
