Fear Comes and Goes — Let it Go

A few years back my good friend Chris Foster posted the most beautiful, candid and uplifting personal account of how he handled fear in the anticipation of a medical exam for a health issue.  His situation is as relevant today as it was back then, perhaps even more so with this global pandemic.  It is also pertinent to our crossing yet another threshold into a new year just weeks away.  I think you will find a way forward through these fear-laden times.  But I’ll let him tell his story. 

The Happy Seeker

By blogger Chris Foster

Fear is on the rise in America, or so it seems. That’s what the newspapers and TV say. Perhaps it’s on the rise everywhere. Fear has a way of generating more fear—just as love has a way of generating more love.

Personally, I’ve known a fair bit of fear in my life. My standard response, when fear came up in me, was to do my best to ignore it, or suppress it.

It never really worked, mind you. The more I tried, consciously or unconsciously, to repress my fear, the more firmly entrenched it became, and the more it continued to haunt me. Fear is good at that. It likes haunting people.

But here’s the good news I want to share with you as we pass the threshold into a New Year and contemplate with joy and perhaps a bit of foreboding the possibilities that 2016 [and 2022] may hold in store.

Fear is not the scary, unconquerable monster we may have thought it to be. Believe it or not, fear can be our ally, and teacher.

A couple of months or so ago, I was due for my annual CT scan. I’m a two-year cancer survivor, and Kaiser likes to keep a close eye on me to make sure that there is no recurrence of this feared illness.

As the date of my appointment drew closer, I wasn’t entirely surprised when feelings of anxiety began to arise in me.

What was the result going to be? Would everything check out okay? Or would something suspicious show up?

Then I had an idea. A life-saving idea. An idea that I believe is being beamed from Heaven to all of us in these days.

Instead of trying to ignore my fear, or suppress it, as I have done so often in the past─how about acknowledging it, and feeling it, and then simply letting the fear be?

If a thunderstorm erupts in my neighborhood—as it does at times here in Colorado—know there is no need to get in a battle with the storm. It would be kind of futile anyway.

Just as a storm has a beginning, so too it has an end.

So instead of fighting the anxiety that rose up in me from time to time when I thought about my coming test, I simply let the fear be. I realized it’s not so different really to a Colorado thunderstorm.

Putting it another way, I let the fear simply pass through me, and as it did pass through me, a miracle occurred. I experienced the truth of my own essence, my own presence, more strongly than ever before in my life. It was a transforming moment, and it was wonderful.

I realized that fear comes and goes, but the truth of who I am, and who we all are, is ageless. It does not change. It was never born. It will never die. It is always present. It doesn’t come and go.

In a strange kind of way, what I had thought of as “fear” became an ally that helped me become more conscious of the inherent goodness and wonder of creation.

So here’s the message I would share with you as 2016 unfolds—face fear and be free.

I wish you a wonderful and blessed New Year. Any thoughts on the above will be most welcome. Also, may I remind you that my new book, The Upside of Cancer, is on sale now at Amazon. It offers a wonderful dose of courage and hope to anyone facing a difficult challenge in their life.

Winston Churchill once said “Fear is a reaction.  Courage is a decision.”  This has proven out to be true in my own experience in facing the decision to take the Covid-19 “booster shot” or not.  I chose not to take it, and that decision dispelled any and all fear of being infected by this dreadful micro-organism going around.  I courageously decided that my body’s immune alliance is sufficiently empowered by my radiant attitude — and conscientious care — to protect it from being infected, as well as in handling infection effectively should it occur.  That said, supporting my body’s immunity has been my practice over the years. 

When we do the right things for our bodies, they come through for us in thick and thin.  I hope that you’ve found faith and courage in Chris’s story to help you make appropriate decisions about your health and life that are right for you.  Take courage as you simply let fear move on through your heart and out.  When it’s gone, you remain intact.  The immortal and eternal You cannot be infected by this or any other tiny microscopic organism.  Empower your body by letting it know your confidence and trust in Life and in its strength.   Until my next post,

Be love. Be loved.

Our Unified Creating Fields

 

THERE IS A UNFIED CREATING FIELD enveloping our physical bodies.  It’s a large part of who and what we are. In fact, this field IS who we are, and it’s at our command. Whether knowingly or unknowingly, we create our worlds and our physical forms by every spirit-imbued thought, word, intention and emotion we entertain and utter and every enactment we perform within our creating field.

At the center of our creating field resides the creation of our physical form.  The field itself is a holographic microcosmic identical clone of a macrocosmic Holographic Universe, which is enveloped in a Unified Field itself, at the center of which resides the Creating Universe, in which all is One.  Creation comes and goes via this Unified Creating Field.

As Rumi so poetically describes it, there is no right or wrong doings in this field.  It’s all perfect, even as the pre-forms of creation continually evolve as the frequencies of Light, the artistic medium of the Creator, step down into lower frequencies to ultimately give visible birth to forms on Mother Nature’s colorful canvas.  Every process and phase of evolution of form is perfect.

All is one in the One whose Creating Field it is.  Even the body of Humanity, in which there exists so much divisiveness and conflict, is one with the All and contained within the Univied Creating Field, in which it is constantly being acted upon by Creative Forces in the Field.

Another word for this Field is the Heaven, the “Kingdom of Heaven” as the Master Jesus referred to it, which he said is both within us and all around us — a heaven that was the first creation in Genesis: “In the beginning God created the heavens and the earth.  The earth was without form and void, and darkness was upon the face of the deep.  And God said: Let there be Light.”  Out of light was created the entire universe, the forms of which materialize and dematerialize, along with the heaven that gave them birth.  There is a heaven for every level of form.  Old heavens and old earths pass away even as new heavens and new earths replace them.  All comes out of and returns to the One.

Our old earth and world are in the process of passing away even as a New Heaven and a New Earth are in the process of coming forth out of the Unified Field of Divine Creation.  “Behold I create a new heaven and a new Earth, for the old heaven and old earth are passed away.”

In the old heaven are “the former things,” the memory patterns of past events, both creative and destructive, “ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing” that have maintained the dis-eased and corrupt human state, along with whatever healthy and wholesome state there is and has been.  That world is, as Rumi put it so succinctly, “too full to talk about.”  And that is my own experience when I let go of it all and lie down in Rumi’s quiet field of simply being, where the meditations of my heart and the thoughts of my mind are worthy of being heard and listened to, and where judgement is not.

Come with me now as I reflect on what I have learned when I was active in the old world as a practitioner and healer of human ills and anguish.  There is something to learn there that can increase our understanding of the chaos currently manifesting in a world in transition from old to new.

THE VIBRATIONAL ORIGIN OF DISEASE AND HEALTH

While I was attending Dr. Milton T. Morter’s seminars and training classes in Bio-Energetic Synchronization Technique (BEST), I heard him expound in vibratory-field language his view, based on his research and practical explorations, how “hereditary diseases” land in our physical bodies.  The gist of it is that patterns of so-called “hereditary diseases,” such as cancer, coronary heart disease and diabetes, do not always arise from out of our genetics, but rather descend from our personal energy fields cluttered with disease patterns from out of the past.  Allow me to elucidate.

According to this scenario, we bring a lot of vibrational energetic baggage with us when we incarnate that may determine our behavior and experience of health and dis-ease.  It’s all present in our personal energy fields, with which we interact on a momentary basis.  Disease patterns that were shaped by strong emotions, such as resentment, anger, fear, anxiety and grief — that were causal in relationship to various disease patterns in prior personal and ancestral incarnations — can be brought down into the physical body from the field on the basis of the principle of resonance.  If one who has inherited such a field package holds onto a strong and unresolved emotional pattern for a long period of time, for instance, a disease pattern in the field shaped by such emotional dissonance may bring the disease associated with it down into one’s physical body.  In other words, “hereditary diseases” such as cancer and diabetes, are not necessarily genetically caused, but may descend from out of one’s personal field — as well as the collective unified field, as I will develop shortly.

I thought that was pretty ingenious. I still do. The question might then be posed, can the field be cleared of all such dissonant patterns?  I believe this is what energy healers, such as Dr. Morter and the Morter Health System, and light workers and energy healers around the globe today, are about in their attunement work and service.  In fact, I’m sure of it . . . and the vibration of Love is the power that does the clearing. “The Father within, he doeth the works,” as the Great Physician himself acknowledged and taught when he walked on earth as a healer of the sick, the blind, and the lame.

MY “CENTURION” EXPERIENCE WITH ATTUNEMENT

I remember very vividly an experience I had back in my early years of clinical practice of clearing a disease pattern in the field around a young boy’s kidneys. His great-grandfather had come to me with an absolute faith that I could help his great-grandson, who was in a hospital miles away from my office.  The child was on dialysis and scheduled for a kidney transplant from his mom the next day. The dissonant and erratic pattern was like a balloon of hot air.  I could feel it and caress it, and within less than a minute, after confirming my upward connection with the Father within the Unified Field, and placing my hands over the great-grandfather’s kidney area, this ball of dissonant energy began to dissipate like a deflating balloon. I knew in an instant that the elderly gentleman and I had done all that we could, and that is exactly what turned out to be the case.  The child’s kidneys began to function again during that night.  He was taken off dialysis and the transplant schedule the same day. The attending surgeon said it was a miracle, as he had no other explanation for the sudden change.  I met the little boy and his mom a few weeks later, and he was a bubbling ball of playful energy.  Needless to say, this “Centurion” experience was a huge teaching for me of the power of attunement and agreement, even at a distance.

I love attunement.  It is a most magical way of clearing the field around the physical body.  Love has to be allowed to flow and radiate within and through the field.  This remote healing experience taught me that faith on the part of both practitioner and recipient, or surrogate as in this case, is essential to the spontaneous clearing of the field and healing of the dis-eased physical form.  And I think that such faith is degree-sensitive.  The greater is one’s faith and belief, the quicker the clearing and healing.

THE COLLECTIVE UNIFIED CREATING FIELD

Could this field-dynamic also be at work on a collective level, such as in the Body of Mankind as a unified whole having a shared mass consciousness and a collective unified creating field?  I believe it is.  This pandemic, for instance, may well have its vibrational origin and cause in the collective unified field where such patterns as the Great Influenza Pandemic of 1918 — which ironically has come up in news items and conversations comparing this pandemic to that one — are implanted.  No doubt strong patterns of fear and anxiety were and are associated with that pattern, as are prevalent in this one.  The oxidative stress of the G5 factor, which I address in my Healthlight Newsletter at LiftingTones.com, may well be creating the conditions in which this dynamic works even quicker.

A theory, much like a vision planted in my brain, to borrow a line from Simon and Garfunkel’s “Sound of Silence,” has developed in my mind about this so-called pandemic — “and still remains within the sound of silence,” as only a brave few have dared break their silence over this deceptive manipulation of the masses, and many more are coming forward daily.  First, that it is orchestrated, and second that in order to create a mass panic that could manifest a pandemic, all that one, or ones, need do is announce the outbreak of a coronavirus in Wuhan, China — at the beginning of the “normal” yearly flu season — that has spread and threatens to become a pandemic, and fear for one’s life grips the hearts of the masses — a fear that is remnant of and resonant with the fear aroused in the populace in 1918 — and down descends the influenza pattern into the body of humanity.  Truly a wetiko, a mind-virus, an invisible pattern in the field manifesting in the physical bodies of people the world over.  Little wonder not one single scientific lab has been able to isolate this “virus” and actually capture a picture of it in their electron microscopes.  Because it’s invisible.  It’s not a thing.  It’s a vibrational pattern in the unified field creating deadly influenza symptoms and death in the masses, just like the influenza of 1918 — and manifesting in the fearful and thus immune compromised, and in the elderly who are already dying from underlying morbidities, such as heart disease and diabetes — all of which are being reported as dying “from” Covid-19 rather than “with” Covid-19, a blatant case of data enhancement and downright lying.

LOVE IS THE ONLY WAY FORWARD

My friends, we are shadow boxing, ghost chasing and there truly is no vaccine that medicine can concoct to immunize the people from it.  Only one thing can dissolve the pattern of fear in the field, this mind-virus, and that’s love. Perfect love casts out fear.  My friend Will Wilkinson in Hawaii is on the right track with his “Love-Casting Club.” Casting love into the Unified Creating Field of the Body of Humanity will dissolve the fear we’ve inherited from our fathers and forefathers back to the fifth generation.  Dissolve the pattern of fear and this shadowy manifestation of disease will vanish like the mist before the rising sun.  If you think you would like to join Will in Love Casting, let him know by email.  His email address is:  noonclubwill@gmail.com.

CHOOSE WHICH FIELD YOU WILL LIVE AND CREATE IN

We each individually and all together as a body of Humanity have a choice to make as to what field, what heaven, we’re going to move forward in and work out of in creating our world: the old heaven polluted with fear, hatred, impatience, greed and corruption, and other patterns of past failures and destruction, in an old earth that’s beyond salvaging, all of which is passing away — or the New Heaven filled with the spirits of love, compassion, patience, creativity, kindness and generosity that is available to us now.  We only have our little heaven, our unified creating field, to work out of in creating our world and our lives.  The good news is that our personal and collective creating fields are contained within the Unified Field and are fed and nourished by it. This is God’s Heaven where all is well.  There are no disease patterns in it, no viruses or pandemic patterns either.  So we have the Creator of Heaven and Earth with us in all that we undertake to create.  It is in the old heaven where things are not so well.  It needs to be left behind and allowed to pass away to make room for the New Heaven out of which a New Earth is being born.  “Behold, I make all things new!” That is my word in this new day.  Let’s make it our collective word.

The Unified Field is at our command because it’s who and what we are.  Let us cast our bread, our prayer, upon these waters, for what we wish to create in our world and in our lives, and give thanks that it is already done according to our word; then be prepared to receive our creation with gratitude and praise to the One. This Law works.  Let’s let it work with our participation and the full empowerment of Love for the Truth of Life.  This is the wholistic path to health and happiness.  Until my next post, here’s to your joy and success creating your health and your world anew.

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,

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.

Ascension Harmonics

(I’ve embedded a video clip for you to listen to while reading my blog meditation. Enjoy the harmonic sound track. It’s an F# Major chord, the frequency that I feel lifts up substance during meditation and attunement. This is the ancient Solfaggio Harmonic 741 Hz intended for expansion of consciousness. You may feel a pulsating pressure behind your eyes as the F# tone resonates within the Pineal Gland opening the sacred seal of the Third Eye, thereby releasing the radiant current of Love’s Light.)  

(Use earphones for full spectrum sound resonance)

ARE WE ASCENDING YET ? 

I believe we are . . . ascending.  At least the energy of the planet appears to be shifting to a higher frequency, and our bodies are very much a part of the planet, so they would also be ascending along with it. Is this an automatic process happening to us, or do we have any part to play in facilitating the process? I believe that both things are happening. Our bodies are being uplifted to a higher frequency and we have a part to play in the process—that is if we wish to take our bodies with us, which may well be possible one day, but not today. Presently, we can only take our spiritual bodies, our souls, with their subtle energy substance with us when we make our transition from the physical plane back to our origin in the realms of Light.

The question Are we ascending? begs a question, and the answer would depend on who we are—or rather who we think we are. If we are referring to the incarnate beings we are in the spiritual sense, then I think there is a consensus among the awakened and enlightened that the beings we are already live at a  higher level of being than the physical and, therefore, do not need to ascend. As for our physical bodies and outer being, which includes our human consciousness, that all needs to ascend to a higher vibrational frequency in order to continue its existence on a planet whose frequency is shifting to a higher vibration. And the only way that can happen is by the power of love emanating from within and permeating and resonating every tissue cell of our bodies.

It is the expression of a higher frequency energy through body, mind and heart that will lever the physical body up to a higher frequency. This is also true for the collective Body of Humanity. In this case, a critical mass is needed to provide that vibrational leverage. 

In the Book of Revelation there is mention of a critical mass of a hundred and forty and four thousand standing on Mount Sion with the Lamb. This could be a vibrational value as well as a group number value.  We know, for instance, that groups of people have meditated together and impacted world events, such as crime and weather patterns. Group chanting and toning has also been used in this way.  It is the quality of love radiation, along with the quantity of individuals sharing in a unified radiation of love, that facilitates the lifting. 

The refrain of a hymn from the Emissaries of Divine Light hymnal Songs of Praise and Thanksgiving comes to mind:

Sweet the lifting scent of worship  To thy heart our love ascends.  Oh what glory fills thy temple.  From this place Thy word extends.”

LET LOVE DO THE WORK

In Biblical symbolism, the Lamb represents Jesus the Christ, the Lord of Love and proclaimed redeemer of mankind. Religious interpretations and creeds aside, what Jesus stood for, his personal mission and purpose for incarnating, was to bring love into the hearts of mankind.  His expression through his human form was that of the highest frequency of love. His reference on every turn was to his heavenly Father. The works that I do, I do not of myself, but the Father within me, he doeth the works.” His message was one of love. “If you love me, do as I command. Love one another as I have love you” and “Love your enemies; do good to those that hate you.” And, of course, there’s the first and second Great Commandments:

“Thou shalt love the LORD thy God with all of thy heart and all of thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength.” And the second: “Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.” (Mark 12:30)

The “Father within” is love. Here is what the author of Revelation, John the Beloved, wrote about the vision he was having:

And I looked, and, lo, a Lamb stood on the mount Sion, and with him an hundred and forty and four thousand, having his Father’s name written in their foreheads.” (Rev. 14:1)

We lead forth with the thoughts in our foreheads in everything we undertake to do. They are written as intentions in our brains. Our creative energies follow our thoughts to manifest those thought forms at lower frequencies so that we may see and enjoy them at the physical level.

Although we are told by health authors that we are what we eat, that isn’t the whole truth. We are also what we think and express. James Allen writes about this in his little book As A Man Thinketh.

The aphorism, “As a man thinketh in his heart so is he,” not only embraces the whole of a man’s being, but is so comprehensive as to reach out to every condition and circumstance of his life. A man is literally what he thinks, his character being the complete sum of all his thoughts.

Well, that’s not all a Man is, is it ?  Man is a Human Being, a Being incarnate in human form. This aphorism indicates that a man thinks in his heart, not his mind. This is so, as we now know there are brain cells in the heart which communicate with cells in the brain. The Master Jesus apparently knew of this connection between heart and mind when he said “Out of the abundance of the heart the mouth speaks.” 

THE HEART-BRAIN CONNECTION

Here are a few “Heart-Brain Factoids” from the Institute of Heartmath.

Your Heart's Electromagnetic Field
      Heart’s Electromagnetic Field

Your heart emits an electromagnetic field that changes according to your emotions. Others can pick up the quality of your emotions through the electromagnetic energy radiating from your heart.

The heart has a system of neurons that have both short- and long-term memory, and the signals they send to the brain can affect our emotional experiences.  The heart sends more information to the brain than the brain sends to the heart.  Coherent heart rhythms help the brain in creativity and innovative problem-solving.

With this knowledge of the heart-brain connection, it is easy to understand how love in our hearts can raise the vibrational frequency of the cells in our bodies. It doesn’t take much change in vibration upward—as little as half a pitch, like from F to F#—to make the body impervious to disease. Just a little more and the body will levitate. Just a bit more and the body cells will vibrate at the speed of love, which is light. And just a little more than the speed of light, the body will shift levels, become completely invisible to third-dimensional perception. So, you see, we are not very far from the fourth dimension vibrationally speaking. After we ascend to the fourth dimension, then ascension on upward into the fifth dimension, or density as some would have it, and further would be possible. Man was created on the sixth day in Genesis. Our Home, then, is at the level of the sixth heaven, just a little lower than the angels’ abode in God’s seventh heaven. There’s a Biblical reference to this in the Book of Psalms.

When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and 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 angel, and hast crowned him with glory and honour. (Psalm 8:3-5)

(Start the clip up again and go to Full Screen view for a seven minute sound attunement after you finish reading.)    

There have been so many reminders of our place in the Divine Design and Cosmology. These Biblical passages have always intrigued me and drawn me to them in meditation. This one is one of my favorite.

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

Who shall ascend into the hill of the LORD? or who shall stand in his holy place? He that hath clean hands and a pure heart; who hath not lifted up his soul unto vanity, nor sworn deceitfully. He shall receive the blessing from the LORD, and righteousness from the God of his salvation. This is the generation of them that seek him, that seek thy face, O Jacob.

Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in.  Who is this King of glory? The LORD strong and mighty, the LORD mighty in battle. Lift up your heads, O ye gates; even lift them up, ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in. Who is this King of glory? The LORD of hosts, he is the King of glory.  Selah.

The “LORD of host” could be the Lord Buddha, or the Lord Krishna, or any one of several deities and ascended masters in the many religions of the world. Addressing the Western world, I more naturally use Biblical references of the Christian scriptures.  Readers are free to reference their own cultural beliefs and sacred scriptures. Whatever works for you. I respect all religious beliefs and sacred texts and I appreciate that my readers, wherever you are, respect the ones I reference in my blogs. Thank you. 

THE PHYSIOLOGY OF ASCENSION

The body goes in the direction of the heart’s response. When the heart is open upward in utter abandon and perfect love response to the Lord of Love, and the head is lifted up with the mind focused in the highest image one may have of the Lord of Love, “the King of glory,” the body cells begin to vibrate at a higher frequency in resonance with the frequency of Love. Love can then fill the heart to overflowing. “And the King of glory shall come in.” The heart sends a message to the brain, which sends a message to the hypothalamus, which in turn sends messages via hormone precursors to the seven endocrine glands, which are the “seven seals” of the book of life. According to the author of Revelation, only the Lamb can open the seven seals of the book of life. The Lamb is Love.

The vibration of Love moving in and through the heart opens the vibrational gateways—“ye gates and everlasting doors”–of the seven endocrine glands releasing powerful hormones that go forth into the body and raise the frequency of the cells. In an instant, the body begins to rise up off the ground in ecstatic fusion with the God Being incarnate. The cycle of ascension is thus initiated. The angel takes his or her body-temple up to the next level.

From my own personal experience, this is the way it works. There are no techniques, sound or otherwise, that can initiate this process. Harmonic sound can attune energy and subtle substance and facilitate its movement through the chakra and endocrine centers. As I mentioned at the start, I find that the F# Major chord as played in the clip does move energy upward in an ascending spiral. The Father within, however, “He doeth the works.” Love God with all.

Thank you for following my blogs and for sharing these heartfelt thoughts and meditations.  I welcome your thoughts.

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.
