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

NOTHING IS AS IT SEEMS—or so it seems. The world of form around us is said to be an illusion and that which appears solid is in a state of flux and constant motion. The very elements that comprise the material world from which our bodies arise are constantly undergoing transmutation. I had a visual experience of the liquid nature of the world many years ago as I was in a deep meditative trance during an attunement session. I went into an altered state of consciousness. When I opened my eyes and looked around the room, the carpet in the room appeared to be alive and crawling with ants, as were the walls and furniture. This alteration of consciousness lasted for only a few moments as I came out of my trance. Nothing is as it seems.
THIS ELECTRICAL WORLD OF EFFECTS
We do perceive our world to be solid and hard as we bump up against things. I’ve come to understand this to be nothing more than our body’s electrical charge being repelled by the negative electrical charge of the electrons spinning around inside the atoms that make up the molecular structure of the material world—or so the current scenario of the structure of the atom goes, a scenario that’s being challenged by scientists, including Dr. Walter Russell, whose revolutionary concepts of the the universe of matter have piqued the interests of leading-edge scientists and some of those thinkers involved in the science and consciousness movement. His published work has seamlessly interwoven science and spirituality.
By negative I do not mean pessimistic or destructive. I’m referring to electrical positive charge and negative discharge, noting that this is a discharge of electrical current and not the neutral grounding principle of the electrical circuitry in the wiring of your house where a “hot wire” carrying a positive current of electricity discharges its power via a neutral “grounding” wire that, with the flip of a switch, lights up the room or powers a motor. That’s not an example of positive and negative electricity. That’s an example of a positive charge discharging its power into the neutral and receptive ground, as in the case of lightning and thunder bolts.
This is dramatically demonstrated—sometimes painfully and fatally so—when someone who is grounded grabs a “hot” wire with the palm of his hand, the positive side of the hand. The hand tightens around the wire and it is nearly impossible to pull it away. If, however, one brushes up against the hot wire with the back side of one’s hand, the negative side, the hand is repelled. The positive electrical charge is a magnet to the positive side of the hand and repels the negative side.
A WINDING AND UNWINDING UNIVERSE
According to Russell’s inspired vision of this electric universe, a negative charge repels both negative and positive charges, simply based on its unwinding centrifugal force of radiation outward from its vortex apex of positive magnetic centripetal contraction—the latter inhaling and compressing energy and the former exhaling and decompressing the energy of bifurcated Light. (See diagram above)
Undivided Light is the stable fulcrum of this energetic leveraging dynamic. It’s also the still and immovable point of control for this rhythmic heartbeat of the Cosmos. The Earth and all the planets are attracted to and repelled from the Sun simultaneously. Light is the still point of rest and origination for all of Creation.
The radiant magnetic presence of the sun is always available to the orbiting planets, whose lesser potentials attracts them to the greater potential of the sun even as their negatively charged bodies repel them from the sun, thereby keeping them in a creative proximity to the sun and to one another, and in a state of equilibrium. I suspect there’s a lot more science and physics at work involving the atmosphere, ionosphere and the Van Allan Radiation Belts of charged particles that shield the Earth from powerful solar winds.
In the Divine Design of Creation, the Light of Love shines radiantly into the darkness upon the face of the deep of space and shapes hallowed space . . . and continues to sanctify and reshape unhallowed space by means of Love’s purifying fire. Man’s role in this creative dynamic is to respond to the radiance of Love and to be drawn by its magnetic power to participate in Creation.
Let me share something with you that has enlightened my understanding of this illusory universe of matter—illusory only in that we cannot see the whole picture, which includes the invisible vibrational essences, with our physical and mental faculties. We can only discern them at the higher level of perception our hearts afford. Spiritual or vibrational things are spiritually or vibrationally discerned.
The mind’s netlike substance can only snare the larger thought patterns; the smaller essences slip right through its net. With the finer substance of our hearts we understand the fine essences of spirit. If we were to see the whole picture, we would see the continuum of differentiated energy and understand the vibratory nature of the material world. We would not then be fooled by the illusion of its seeming stability. Because it is in constant motion at the molecular level, it is quite susceptible to change—sudden change, as cataclysms, earthquakes, tornadoes and hurricanes demonstrate. As part of a vibrational continuum of consciousness—the heaven and the earth being one inseparable whole—a change in the upper realms affects change in the lower realms.
SEEING WITH THE HEART
Science and physics observe the Universe of matter using mental and physical modes of observation. They then draw conclusions based on what they observe in laboratories and develop theories about the construction of the physical world based on those very limited observations of appearances. After all, physics is a physical science, and scientific research is largely a mental exercise. What scientists and physicists cannot see and observe is the invisible vibrational reality behind the physical world of matter that gives it it’s properties and characteristics, along with its activities and movements—and how is all fits together into One Universal Whole.
That word alone (Uni-verse) means to turn as One around a stable fulcrum point of balancing Power which has position but no magnitude. Here in the Western hemisphere, we use the words God, the One and Creator or Great Spirit to speak of this unspeakable and ineffable nameless ONE. In Eastern religious sects, words such as Allah, Elohim, Yahwey, Purusha and a host of other names are used. Walter Russell uses the word “MIND” in his writings . . . and this brings me to something I wish to say about the human mind in the context of reading and studying the works of geniuses, such as Walter Russell was in his productive and creative life of service to the ONE.
The human mind is sometimes intimidated by complex intellectual considerations. Our minds are wonderful instruments for refocusing the Light of Truth that allows us to comprehend and navigate the many and various features and aspects of the physical material world of effects. Opened upwards, we are able to discern the invisible vibrational essences in the realm of Cause with the heart, for it is in our hearts, as we considered above, where spiritual and vibrational factors of Reality and Cause are understood. It has been demonstrated that there are a considerable number of “brain cells” in the physical heart. The popular saying “As a man thinketh in his heart so is he” speaks to this truth.
When I first opened Walter Russell’s book, THE UNIVERSAL ONE, several years ago, I was utterly at a loss mentally at comprehending what I was reading. I only started reading because of the headings of the chapters, which piqued my interest a great deal, for I have always been curious when it came to understanding what makes things what they are and by what force they are moved about. So I stayed with him “through thick and thin” as we say; through page after page and chapter after chapter. Suddenly, as if by some spontaneous shift in my faculty for understanding, I began reading his thought processes. I tapped into his mind, and I believe into the MIND of God, dare I say, whence Russell’s thoughts and words appeared to be arising and falling on the pages.
Once I began flowing with the current weaving through his uniquely poetic style of writing and expressing his understanding of the secrets of the Universe, I began to actually enjoy his writings. My next desire was to share some of his wisdom and insights with others through my blogs—which immediately presented a challenge. I suspect there are not very many of my followers who are interested in comprehending the secrets of the Universe, or the genius of Walter Russell . . . and I do appreciate that. Yet, I venture forward into the challenging endeavor of sharing what I find exciting and inspiring in this Universe of creating forces.
So I would encourage you to read the excerpts from Russell’s work more with your heart than with your mind in order to sense the current of his thinking. If you show interest in the topic, then you will begin to understand his thinking. Simply focus on the words and re-read challenging sentences. But also allow your heart to be involved in discerning his spirit and passion for revealing and sharing with his colleagues and the world what he has been allowed to “see” during his thirty-nine-day illumination period in 1921. His mind was a luciferous bearer of insight into the Reality behind the Universe during his creative life’s journey of 92 years (1871-1963). Of this I am convinced. So I will proceed with this introduction to a new series of blog posts under the heading “Transmutation of the Elements of Matter.”
WE APPEAR AND THEN WE DISAPPEAR
We appear at birth into this material world of elemental forms. During the first thirty-five or forty years we grow our physical bodies, educate our minds to function intelligently in this world, and ideally mature emotionally and spiritually in order to navigate the vibrational terrain of life. . . all of it the accomplishments of the achieving centripetal flow of positive masculine energy, the magnetic force that draws form together.
If and as we transcend physical reality to embrace the world of Spirit and live our creative lives of about forty or fifty years out of a spiritual consciousness and awareness of our divine identity and authentic Self, we bring forth the unique gifts of our life’s work. In the end of our life cycle, and by way of the expenditure of energy we put forth—a responsive function of our negative feminine energy—we dismantle our physical forms and then simply disappear back from whence we appeared. As Shakespeare put it in poetic verse: “Sans teeth, sans eyes, sans taste, sans everything.”
We refer to this end-phase of life as the “golden years” because the golden glow of youthful and childlike radiance returns with the centrifugal unwinding of our life energy as the light of the angel yet incarnate begins to shine through the thinning veil of the opaque heart and facial countenance.
I am reminded of two of my ageing attunement mentors. Dr. George Shears, whose countenance shown with light as his form seemingly faded thin weeks before making his transition and final transmutation back to pure spirit. It was a wonderful experience and privilege to abide in the shadow of his light during our almost daily attunement sessions while attending a three-month Art of Living class at Sunrise Ranch in Loveland, Colorado, where he lived out his final days of service here on Earth. Sometimes his hand rested on my chest as he fell asleep. I loved him very much, as I did his nephew, Dr. William Bahan, “Bill” as we called him, my professional mentor, whose personal field of radiance was at times a palpable hedge extending several feet around his body toward the latter days of his presence on earth, considerably dense as I approached to shake his hand on one occasion. I looked up into his welcoming and un-filtering eyes as I entered his protective hedge without resistance, as I know there was much in my personal field that yet needed purification and clarification.
The world of energy is fascinating but exacting to navigate. As the saying goes, “Fools rush in where angels fear to tread.” The terrain of the elemental earth is alive with movement. Men are wasteful in their ignorance of this as they impose their destructive machinery tearing into the mountains for minerals and the sacred earth for fuel. There is an easier and less destructive way that remains hidden from the eyes of the foolish. I will continue exploring this alchemical way of the Transmutation of the Elements of Matter in my next few posts. I welcome any thoughts and insights you may wish to share. Until my next post,
Be love. Be loved.
