“The physical body is Real and beautiful beyond words to describe. It is wonderful beyond all the imaginings of mankind. In it are revealed the secret things of God. Through it work the Cosmic Forces of the Universe.”—Uranda

IN CELEBRATION of the New Earth dawning, I open a door in heaven to shine light into the earthly aspect of Creation and to enjoy a perspective of the body temple from the angel’s point of view. Earth is our Home among the stars, where angels incarnate in living, breathing earthen forms to manifest a heavenly abode for our Creator on the material plane, and where all the levels of being in this seven-dimensional world congeal into an experiential spectrum of creativity — where seeds are planted, germinate and sprout, and where trees grow and flowers blossom; where creatures both great and small fill the earth, and where birds fly in the air and fishes of the sea plunge the deep. I turn in this meditation to the beautiful and exquisite human body to meditate upon the awesome experience of the miracle of life we share with all of creation. The physical, material world is, after all, where all the levels of being can be enjoyed to the fullest. It is the ultimate experience of life, of God being human on planet Earth.
That said, it is with much thought and hesitation that I proceed in sharing the following consideration from SACRED ANATOMY in a public forum such as this — particularly in a coarse world that yet struggles with such troubling issues as abortion, rape and birth control, child and human trafficking, and that objectifies and exploit the human body for monetary gain — as the subject matter is highly esoteric and sacred, intended for the initiated in the school of the Sacred Art of Living.
While pondering what my next blog series might be, and considering the theme of recent posts centered around the emergence of the New Earth out of the New Heaven, and the transmutation of the sacred earth — and more currently the wider opening of a door in Heaven for those who would enter the Temple of Light — the chapter in my book featuring the Spirit of the New Earth and the endocrine glands of the gonads presented itself as timely.
Just as a preface to this series, the consideration of our sacred anatomy, presented here in the form of a meditation on transcendent essences, is not a scholarly study of human anatomy and physiology — although those aspects are given due consideration for accuracy. It is rather a presentation of firsthand esoteric knowledge, as previously noted, and inspired visionary insight and revelation.
The book itself came to me to be written and published, a creative process that spanned a period of nine years. The point of view of this sacred terrain, then, is that of the angel incarnate whose temple this body is, a temple for the presence and worship of the Living God on the physical plane of Being. I ask you to read these words and ponder this meditation in your heart more than in your mind, with spiritual intelligence rather than mental. Spiritual essences are spiritually discerned and understood in the heart.
SEVEN SPIRITS AS “LAMPS OF FIRE”
The larger context of this chapter is a section of the book dedicated to the consideration of the seven endocrine glands and their spiritual significance and functions as centers for the Seven Spirits before the throne of God — as described by St. John in his Book of Revelation as “seven lamps of fire burning before the throne.” (Rev. 4:5)
These “Seven Spirits” were given names and characteristics by spiritual teacher and energy-healing pioneer Lloyd Arthur Meeker (Uranda, 1907-1954) — such as the Spirit of Love for the Pineal gland, the Spirit of the Womb or Truth for the Pituitary gland, the Spirit of Life for the Thyroid gland, the Spirit of Purification for the Thymus gland, the Spirit of Blessing for the Islet of Langerhans in the Pancreas, the Spirit of the Single Eye for the Adrenal glands, and the Spirit of the New Earth for the Gonads. Uranda also framed these Spirits and endocrine glands in the context of a stairway of “Seven Steps to the Temple of Light.” This same seven-level stairway may be seen in the light of the biblical “Jacob’s ladder” for the descent as well as ascent of angels between heaven and earth.
While I fully embrace Uranda’s terminology and spiritual teachings in this writing, from a vibrational standpoint these “Spirits” can be understood as the differentiations of the One Holy vibrational frequency of the Light of Love. Just as a prism differentiate the sun’s white light into the rainbow spectrum of seven colors, so do the endocrine glands act as prisms and transformers of Love’s sacred Light. As we shall see, the color frequency of the Spirit of the New Earth is red, an earth tone. Red is the longest frequency wave in the rainbow spectrum. The attitudinal qualities of this first vibrational level are that of patience and right expectance.
We’re speaking here of energy and various densities and textures of spiritual or vibrational substance, each focused energetic vortex playing a specific role in the body appropriate to its frequency. It is with this in mind that I ventured forth twenty-five years ago to facilitate the writing and publication of SACRED ANATOMY*, an inspired creation.
These spirits, then, are focused sacred energic vibrations that are perceptible and known at a physical level in our human capacities, what are sometimes described as “body-mind-spirit continuums.” I envision a musical instrument with strings, perhaps a harp, for us angels to play heavenly music during our earthly sojourn. Each string or combination of strings could represent an organ or gland in the body, and seven of these strings could represent the seven endocrine glands and their corresponding “Spirits.”
The point I wish to make here is though we speak and write using finite words to describe infinite realities and essences, the Spirit of God is practical and manifests forms by means of a spiritual or vibrational medium. Uranda called this medium “pneumaplasm” (spirit substance). Think in terms of frequency and the differentiation of the Tone that first gives rise to a “mist” in the Garden of Consciousness wherein the seeds of creation are sown conveying the design and control factors of living forms into the vast field of undifferentiated cosmic dust and sets in motion the entire Universe. This same Tone plays the “Music of the Spheres” through our Body Temples, and beyond them in the Cathedral of the Natural World — the “Whole Holy World,” as Uranda honored it, consisting of both Heaven and Earth. These energy centers are also described as “seals” in their function as hormonal glands that release potent chemistry for generative and functional processes in the body’s physiology, as well as for the transmutation process by which atoms composing flesh and bone may ascend to become the essences of spiritualized angelic flesh. So, with all these things in mind, I present . . .

Spirit of the New Earth
OUR EXPLORATIONAL MEDITATION brings us now to a consideration of the first vibratory seal in this sacred temple, the Gonads (from the Greek gone, meaning seed). These delicate yet powerful pairs of glands are located in the pelvic region of the human anatomy. The female aspects, the ovaries, are within the pelvic girdle in front of the sacrum, the triangular bone connecting the two pelvis blades and forming the dorsal portion of the pelvis. The male aspects, the testes, are suspended outside the pelvic region and contained in the sac of the scrotum. As their name implies, these glands produce the “seeds” that spawn human life. The ancients believed that life originated from this region of the physical anatomy, thus the origin of the word sacrum, which means sacred bone. They were not too far off the mark, as we shall see, for what does originate here in this region of our anatomy is truly of a sacred nature. But first let us look at the hormonal chemistry and physiology of these pro-generative glands.
The hormones produced by the Gonads play pivotal roles throughout the body temple. Right at the start, their secretions determine the sexual characteristics of the embryo and then continue to influence the growth, maturation and development of the male and female forms.
For example, the first role testosterone plays, as mentioned earlier in our consideration of hormones as “crystal messengers of light,” is to split the brain into two lobes in both the female and the male embryo. The quantity of testosterone produced in the developing fetus will determine how much brain tissue remains connected between the two hemispheres. The female brain has more corpus callosum tissue connecting the two hemispheres than the male brain has, giving women greater integration between right brain and left brain in their thinking processes. It is thought that this greater complexity tends to bring in more of the artistic and aesthetic “feelings” surrounding issues being considered, as compared to the male thinking processes which tend to be more logical, cold and calculating.
As we considered earlier also, estrogen and progesterone, the two primary ovarian hormones, give the female form its graceful curves and softness, as well as its emotional climate and the expression of feminine nurturing energies. These two hormones work synergistically to provide for a controlled growth of new tissue wherever it is needed, as in the development of the endometrial lining of the uterus in preparation for the fertilized ovum, and in the process of bone replacement where both play an essential role together in breaking out old, brittle bone (progesterone’s role) and replacing it with new bone tissue (estrogen’s role). The dominant presence of estrogen without the controlling factors progesterone offers into the process of new growth will result in an unbridled proliferation of neoplasm in the developing fetus, as well as elsewhere in the body temple where such proliferation may develop into cancerous growth.
When the young adolescent reaches puberty, the hypothalamus initiates hormonal changes in both the female and the male by secreting a chemical called gonadotropin-releasing hormone, or GnRH. Elevations in GnRH sends a signal to the pituitary gland of the young girl to release two hormones called follicle-stimulating hormone (FSH) and luteinizing hormone (LH), which initiates adult ovarian function. The girl becomes a childbearing woman.
Testosterone, the male partner to estrogen, gives the male form its strong, muscular characteristics and provides for the expression of the masculine achieving energy. These hormones are produced in the body under the initiative and direction of the Pituitary Gland, where the Spirit of the Womb abides and oversees the Creative Process. Both male and female hormones are to be found in men and women alike, with one more dominant than the other in each sex respectively, providing for the expression of the masculine and the feminine currents of energy through Man. These highly charged energies work together as partners in co-creation with the Spirit of the New Earth.
Closely associated with the Gonads are the organs of reproduction themselves: the uterus which provides a womb for the conception, gestation and development of the human embryo; the fallopian tubes that convey an ovum into the uterus each and every month; and the erectile structure of the glans clitoridis (clitoris) which activates the contractions during sexual orgasm, as well as the ascension of the “kundalini,” the yogi life force that lies coiled at the base of the sacrum and rises up to the pineal gland atop the spinal cord at the base of the brain and opens this sacred seal to enlightenment.
In the male the glans penis (penis), situated below and around the rim or head of the penis, serves this same dual purpose, triggering climatic waves that convey sperm from the testicles through the seminal vesicle—a highly convoluted duct called the “vas deferens”—and into the ejaculatory duct of the penis, passing through the prostate gland which secretes, as well as propels, an alkaline fluid containing the sperm through the penis and into the vagina during intercourse, where some of the sperm find their way through the cervix, the birthing portal of the womb, and into the uterus with intent to fertilize the ovum. These organ/glands define at the physical level of procreation the giving and receiving aspects of the masculine and the feminine energies.
The vessels of our sexual organs are especially sacred in that they connect the seven endocrine glands of the female temple with those of the male during sexual intercourse. They may be seen, perhaps, as the right and left hand of the Creator, joined together in holy union—the positively-charged masculine with the negatively-charged feminine energies—for the purpose of releasing a unified current of love into the world. Ultimately, as we shall explore, they are instrumental in generating the alchemy by which physical flesh is transmuted into the spiritualized substance of pneumaplasm, the silvery medium by which ecstatic union with the Divine is known in the ultimate sacramental ritual of sacred sex. All of these glands and organs are the domain of the Spirit of the New Earth.

Reading this anew, my heart is filled with the lyrics of a hymn written by Allen Dorfman, a fellow angel of sacred sound . . .
A DOOR IS OPENED
A door is opened in heaven, the beauty of life shines bright as the sun, and the glory of God is revealed in man.
A door is opened in heaven, for hearts and minds are turned toward the truth, as the honor of God is revealed in man.
Our voice resounds as a trumpet call, “Lift your eyes, rise up and see a holy place where all may blend in sacred harmony.”
A door is opened in heaven, let nations rejoice and sing out in praise, for the power of God is revealed in man.¹
. . . and words of the Prophet Isaiah: “But be ye glad and rejoice forever in that which I create: for, behold, I create Jerusalem [the new state of consciousness] a rejoicing, and her people a joy.” (Isaiah 65:18)

In my next post, I will continue to share excepts from this chapter on the Gonads and the Spirit of the New Earth. The topic will be the musical shaping of sacred space, the Kundalini fire of transmutation, and the ascent of the atomic molecules. Until then,
Be love. Be loved.
