The Pituitary’s Role in Building Community

 “To love another person is to see the face of God”

This past Labor Day weekend, Bonnie and I watched PBS’s presentation of Les Miserables in concert format and enjoyed every minute of this powerful musical. Jean Valjean’s (Alfie Boe) last words before dying still resonate in my heart: “To love another person is to see the face of God.” Wow! My eyes teared up as he sang this line, as they did throughout the story.  I was moved by the music and the songs, especially when Fontaine (Lea Salonga) poured her heart out in “I Dreamed a Dream,” and Alfie Boe, with his rich baritone voice, sang “Bring Him Home.” But then, I’m a softy and tear up easily when sweet and caring words are spoken and acts of extraordinary generosity are portrayed in movies. Some scenes simply touch a tender spot in my heart of longing for life in our world to be as beautiful and full of simple acts of kindness and appreciation as portrayed in movies such as this. 

I am blessed to have someone close to love and to share life with. It’s a privilege I do not take for granted—although it is granted. Bonnie and I both acknowledge that we are truly a gift from Life to one another, a gift for whom I am deeply thankful, especially as we age together in a high-tech world that seems to be leaving us behind, and dear friends and family members are departing.

We have been gifted by Life in the many friends we’ve come to know over the years. I marvel at times at how we are naturally, though magically, drawn together by Spirit, occasioned by common interests and sheer resonance at times, and remain connected in spirit, though miles and oceans apart. We are clearly part of a global spiritual community that abides and serves the One in the larger Body of Man at a level clearly above the physical, yet includes the physical.

We are drawn together by Love, just as surely as the cells of our bodies are drawn together by Love and arranged by perfect design to function together in a controlled and purposeful manner as a true community—thanks to our wonderful Pituitary gland and the Spirit of Truth focused here— and the Spirit of Love focused in the Pineal gland . . . and the Spirit of Life focused in and by the Thyroid gland (which I will write about shortly) . . . and all of the other glands of our endocrine system that provide their unique focus for Life in the body.  The word focus is the operative word here for the theme of this post, in which I am happy to share this except from my book SACRED ANATOMY. 

A Collective Body

   Whether we are aware of it or not, our function on Earth greatly impacts the balance of creation throughout the solar entity, just as the function of the Pituitary determines the balance of energy and chemistry in our bodies.  How we use this sacred seal is crucial to the outworking of creative cycles throughout the body, as well as our relationship with others in our worlds.  It is designed to honor and give focus for the Spirit of Truth.  We use this seal correctly when our passion is for the truth of love in our momentary living. 

   It is the prayer of many who have vision, and who offer themselves as spiritual mentors these days, that we all become conscious of our true identity as angelic beings and aware of our mission and heavenly purpose so that we might play our parts with genuine authority in our collective role of wise stewardship, exercising loving dominion over the balance of Creation on this planet.  A global awakening to this reality in the collective has occurred over the past few decades.  What is being called for today, I feel, is a certain meekness of mind, a willingness born of true humility to be teachable and to explore together what is required of us during these historic and crucial days of completion and new beginnings as we move into the new millennium.  When the mind is meek and teachable, still and open to explore new possibilities, the heart may feel free to open up and start trusting its perceptions and, more importantly, sharing its perspectives and understanding. It is with the heart’s discernment that we feel our way through the darkness in this world.  It is with her understanding and perspectives, based on spirit rather than structure, that we will forge a path to the “world waiting to be born” Scott Peck envisioned and wrote about. This is what true vision is.

    It has been said, “Where there is no vision, the people perish.” It also follows that where there is vision the people flourish. It is important, then, that those with vision, those who know and know that they know, by virtue of their own living the truth of love, come forward to shed light into the darkness of human misunderstanding and confusion.  This is happening on a grander scale now than ever before.  Everywhere I turn I see individuals living and speaking their truth with authority and assurance, even if not with pristine clarity as yet. There is much more to come in the way of purity of heart and clarity of understanding. There’s no need to put this process on hold, however, until the heart is fully purified.  As each one puts his and her piece of truth into the collective container of consciousness, the picture continues to clarify for all.  It is the shining of one’s light that the capacity for shining is transformed and clarified, as well as grows.     

   To use a biblical metaphor, one does not light a candle and place it under a bushel but in a place where it can be seen by men and where it will light up the entire room.  We all have a part to play and everyone’s part, without exception, is essential to the whole picture and to the inevitable outcome of the cycles of change presently underway on Earth.  No one will remain untouched or unchanged by these re-creative cycles that are bringing us all together as One Body for the One Spirit we all love and seek to serve more fully. 

   In our love for the One and for one another, the true design of spiritual governance through a pattern of harmonic focalization would naturally begin to be unveiled and fleshed out on a basis that is acceptable to all who keep their I single in the Spirit whose design it is.  That Spirit is not an elusive, inaccessible entity, but rather is closer than breath.  It differentiates itself through each one of us, as it does in the natural world around us, in focalized patterns.  Life is an organizing force that brings order and harmony out of chaos and confusion. The Universe attests to its creative genius.

   We each focus a unique aspect and frequency of Spirit. We are drawn toward—and we draw to ourselves—those with whom we naturally resonate in Spirit at the core of our hearts. This is what I mean by harmonic focalization. To use a musical metaphor, some of us sing melodies in the life of a community and others of us sing harmonies around them. Those of us who usually sing harmonies sometimes find ourselves singing melodies with others, who perhaps usually sing melodies, gravitating toward us to harmonize—or coordinate—their parts with us. This is the organism rather than the organization model.  It’s the way things work in the Universe to achieve anything genuine and organic. 

   Nothing could be achieved in the physiology of the human body but anarchy and pandemonium without the focus of the Spirit of Love in the Pineal Body and the nurturing coordination of the Spirit of the Womb in the Pituitary gland. So is it with the collective body of humanity. Where Spirit is focalized and its differentiations coordinated in a pattern of design and control, the collective body temple comes together as a unified expression of divine love to provide a Home for God on Earth.  This, I believe, is the healing the Body of God on Earth is in dire need of today, a process that appears to be underway. 

   I see a collective Body Temple rising in our midst today composed of  incarnate beings of light the world around, men and women who have remembered who they are and why they are here, who give their utmost care and attention to the sacred in everyday life.  All are invited to play a role in this temple, be it large or small.  The Earth itself is being recognized once again for the Sacred Temple it provides for the continual praise and worship of the Creator in this Solar Entity, this Cathedral of the living God.

   Speaking of individuals emerging who carry a current of love for truth in their writings, my friend and poet Diana Durham’s book The Return of King Arthur, which is written around the theme of the quest for the Holy Grail, a myth full of symbolism that points to the reality of human experience, past, present and future, may well be the single most important book at the dawn of the New Millennium, certainly among the top ten. The author names, like no other author I have read to date, where we have been and how we have been wounded, where we are now and where we are headed—and naming the wound is the first step toward healing.  Her chapter eleven, “The Chalice of Collective Sovereignty,” is a must-read for every awakened human being on the planet at this time of global transformation and transition out of the old and into the New Era. I simply cannot resist sharing just a few of the many morsels of her wisdom here in this consideration of the collective body, and as a fitting closing to our meditation on the roles the Pituitary Gland and Spirit of the Womb play in our body temples. –(from SACRED ANATOMY)

Due to their length, I will publish the excerpts from her book in my next post, concluding this series on the Spiritual Significance of the Pituitary Gland.

To my followers and readers

I seek to speak truth to a compromised state of human consciousness in my writings. To the extent my words are received by you my readers, they convey my spirit into the collective consciousness and my purpose for writing and blogging is thereby accomplished. For that I am deeply thankful to God for you and for all who follow and read my blogs.  Feel free to share my posts with friends as deemed fitting. 

Blessings,

Culling and Purification by Resonance

“The prince of this world cometh, and findeth nothing in me.” (Jesus)

I would like to pause in this series to focus on purification of the heart, mainly because it’s what we’re going through, individually and collectively, as conditions in the global climate, and in world politics, heat up. In the physical body, purification is a function of the Thymus gland and immune system — which we will consider later. In the spiritual body, purification takes place in the heart.

 OF SHEEP, GOATS AND WOLVES

There was good reason why shepherds mixed goats in with their herd of sheep in Biblical days. The reason was to protect the sheep from being attacked by wolves. It seems the strong body odor of the goats provided a protective shield around the herd, acting as sort of a “wolf-repellent.” I guess wolves don’t particularly like goat for dinner, or being gored by their pointed horns.  Whatever the reason, wolves tended to stay away from sheep herds that had goats mixed in with them. Upon returning from the grazing fields to the corral, the sheep were culled out from the goats and placed in separate enclosures — thus the Biblical parable of the shepherd separating the sheep from the goats.

CULLING BY RESONANCE

Today we are experiencing the reality portrayed by this parable, only the culling is by resonance. It’s vibrational and it works through the heart. “As a man thinketh in his heart, so is he.”

The full passage from James Allen’s book reads:

“As a man thinketh in his heart so is he.” As the plant springs from, and could not be without, the seed, so every act of a man springs from the hidden seeds of thought.

Those seeds of thought lay dormant in the heart and spring forth in resonance with a vibration in an outside source — a teacher, for example Jesus, or a spiritual guru — or, in the case of a terrorist, a radical ideology.

In musicology the principle of resonance states that when a single tone is played, that tone will find a similar and sympathetic frequency in another instrument and cause it to sound,

THE TONE OF POLITICAL RHETORIC

Resonance occurs between all vibrating substances, including people. We tend to gravitate towards people who “strike a chord” in us, as we say. That’s resonance — and here in the US there’s been a lot of resonance experienced in us as we’ve listened to the rhetoric coming out of Washington DC these past few years. The fact is, our resonance with the tone of that rhetoric, and lack thereof, has served as a culling factor in calling us out and amplifying the split in our Nation right down the middle into right and left “camps.” Not “right and wrong” but simply “right and left” — conservative and liberal — and there are degrees of conservatism and liberalism. We have the “far right” and the “far left,” and the “moderates” in between these two extremes.  We are divided and separated from one another by our political views — our resonance with different ideologies and views — none of which are worthy of us,

Before we got separated into camps, we were all mixed together, like the sheep with the goats, and we respected one another’s political views and orientation. Not anymore. Unless you are prepared to meet the repercussions, you are wise to avoid bringing up politics at a family gathering. 

EVANGELICAL RHETORIC

This holds true with the topic of religion as well – perhaps even more so. There’s nothing more vexing to my spirit than evangelical rhetoric. I was brought up Catholic and truly believed that only Catholics would go to heaven when they died. All the other religions were outside the circle of “chosen ones.” I used to preach this narrow and misguided view trying to convince others that, if they wanted to go to Heaven, they needed to become Catholics. I was a “staunch Catholic,” even an aspirant to the priesthood. But I was not being a Christian. A true Christian would love people just the way they are and respect their beliefs.

My awakening came when a wise teacher told me with a compelling tone of authority: “You are not a Catholic. You are a human being made in the image and likeness of God.” Shortly after that surprisingly resonant encounter with primal truth, I stopped being a Catholic and set out on a path toward learning how to live life as an authentic human being made in the image and likeness of God, with love, respect and compassion for all – “believers” and “nonbelievers” alike.  

RESONANCE REVEALS WHAT’S REALLY INSIDE US

Resonance is a good thing, as it exposes and releases the hidden patterns of thought and feeling that spur our behavior. It lets us see what’s really inside ourselves and gets it out here where we can observe it, bless it, and take steps to change the way we think in our hearts.  In this sense, it’s a blessing, for instance, when feelings of fear and hate are triggered by what someone says, or preaches from their political lectern — or what we see on social media and hear in the news. Only we do not have to act on those feelings.

I recall a television interview with Dr. Depak Chopra, a highly regarded and beloved spiritual guru. It was during the 2016 presidential elections when Donald Trump was rising to take the helms of our Nation’s government. The interviewer asked Dr. Chopra what he thought about the hate and fear-mongering rhetoric pouring out of this man’s mouth on a daily basis. Depak’s countenance immediately changed as he began formulating his response. He said that he experienced real fear for the first time and it shocked him. The fear in his heart had been hidden from him until this moment in time. He expressed utter dismay in its eruption, triggered up in resonance to the tone of Donald Trump’s rhetoric.

RECLAIMING CAPTIVE ENERGY

Then he shared his realization of what was taking place vibrationally and proceeded to demonstrated how he handled the fear as the mindful person he is. Rather than let the feeling consume his outer being, he observed it with love and embraced it with compassion so as to transform it and reclaim the energy it was holding captive back into the Whole. I was utterly amazed and edified by his mastery and humility.  Even the greatest among us have hidden thoughts and feeling reactions in our hearts that can and will resonate with similar thoughts and feelings in others when they are vented with passion.

Then he said something most profound and prophetic. He said that the repercussions of Trump’s rhetoric had knocked the lid off of the collective unconscious and has released all sorts of ill patterns of thought, feeling and unwholesome spirits that have lay dormant there for eons. Those unholy patterns of thought, feeling and behavior are finding expression through the masses and being acted out, particularly by those who resonate with the tone of Trump’s rhetoric.

The lid is off the id and anything can happen . . . not just here in America, but globally.  Apocalypse — a revelation of what has been hidden, of truth and of deception — is happening.

LET NOT OUR HEARTS BE TROUBLED

Take heart, however, for we can seize the opportunity to let our hearts be cleansed of hidden ill thoughts and feelings that are triggered up, so that when the “prince of this world” comes, it finds nothing in us that resonates with its dissonant hateful tones. These ill thoughts and feelings are held in distorted patterns by energy that has been leached and stolen from the Whole, from the Source of all energy.  Stolen by the human ego, the self-active human mind, which is bringing great wrath to bear on the earth and humanity because it knows that its days are numbered and it has but a short time to exist in its present self-centered state —  and it resists transformation and redemption. In the metaphor above, the wolf is the self-active human mind, the prince of this world, and he has learned to come in sheep’s clothing. 

LET THE HEART BE PURIFIED

We all have a mixture of sheep and goat in us — of true and false beliefs and convictions, of good and bad spirits and attitudes, and buttons that get pushed. Perhaps we have hidden our true convictions behind traditional and conventional beliefs and attitudes in order to avoid judgment and criticism, or inciting an argument with friends we don’t want to lose. Real friends are precious, though rare. Or we criticize and judge so as to appear “only human” in the sight of our peers. My point is that we have a mixture of both pure and vile in us that keeps us, in appearance anyway, out of range of the  wolf’s “evil eye,” so to speak; and there is no one eligible to throw the first stone. 

COMING CLEAN OF BELIEFS 

Whereas I do my best to respect another’s beliefs, short of imposing mine on others, I have come to make no excuses for my own convictions gained by experience of truth in living life beyond my prior beliefs. Truth does, after all, free us of our beliefs.  Should the wolf come, my Spirit will be my “shield and buckler.” There’s no need to defend my truth, nor my Self.  Action may be appropriate, but not defense. The true shepherd steps forward to protect his sheep from the wolf when there are no goats in the herd. The pure of heart see God, see the good in all. There comes a time when one simply cannot hide behind convention and tradition any longer. “Let the chips fall where they may” has served as an appropriate attitude. We can come clean of our beliefs, the ego’s feelings not withstanding.

WHAT IS THE EGO ANYWAY?

The Ego is simply our sense of self; the capacity with which we are consciously aware of who we are. The word “ego” is Latin for “I am,” as we learned in high school. We have been taught that we are “only human.” But that is our human ego speaking. We are Human Beings, and our Being is divine, made in the image and likeness of God. We can begin the process of remembering who we are by changing how we see ourselves, not as “merely human” but as Human Beings, as Divine Man, masculine and feminine. That is the truth of the matter. Our sense of self, our ego, is being called to “come up hither” and give us the capacity to know who we truly are, our Divine Self.

RESONANCE WITH THE TONE OF LOVE UPLIFTS

OM in a drop of oil

Speaking and acting out of love, expressing the qualities of Being, such as peace, thankfulness, and compassion, we sound a Tone with which those who have resonant substance in their hearts can resonate. With many now so living and expressing out of love, a line is drawn upon the Earth based on resonance to the Tone of the Seventh Angel’s Trumpet. 

That Angel visited this planet two-thousand-plus years ago and set the Tone for the culling of the body of Man on Earth. Those who resonate with the Tone of Love rise up in joy. There is no need to judge those who do not resonate with Love but who yet resonate with fear and hate. That’s not my business. The Lord would that none should perish, but that all should come to repentance and turn from their orientation in the material world and discover their spiritual orientation and true identity as sons and daughters of the Father and brothers and sisters to one another.  It is my prayer as well.  But let us not tarry, as time is no more. 

Until my next post, when I will resume sharing excerpts from Sacred Anatomy, let your beautiful light shine,

Anthony
