Crucibles for Transmutation and Ascension, page 3: Sacred Design of the Body Temple


Completing the story of King Solomon before continuing in the theme of this series, it is significant in the historical context that Solomon’s kingdom was a failed opportunity for Paradise to be restored on Earth and Man restored to his original role in Eden as co-creator with God.

As you read this post, keep in mind that another and final opportunity is with us today, and we either rise and seize the day or we fall down into oblivion.  The Earth will go on to become the Paradise it was created to be, only without humankind—perhaps for the habitation and true stewardship of Spiritual Man, made in the image and likeness of God decked with majesty and excellence, clothed with a body of light and radiant as a sun—or perhaps more like a Christmas Tree decorated with lights of all the colors of the rainbow.

I wrote a sweet little Christmas song back in my spiritual awakening days that was inspired by the symbol of the Christmas Tree. It’s called “This Angel’s Tree.”  This was back when I was more swift and agile on my feet. Have a listen: 

  

And now on to Solomon’s story, from which we may glean what we must cease doing in order to move with the returning cycle of restoration.  This excerpt is from my book SACRED ANATOMY, where spirit and flesh dance in the fire of creation. In this excerpt I reference the late biblical historian Grace Van Duzen’s legacy work, THE BOOK OF GRACE, A Cosmic View of the Bible.

Solomon’s kingdom represented the culmination of a failed cycle of resurrection for the Body of Mankind—which began to move, actually, with Seth, one of Adam’s sons, out of whose lineage came Noah and, through Noah’s lineage, Abraham. The cycle was initiated with the sparing of Isaac’s life as he was about to be slain in a sacrificial offering by Abraham, his father, upon a mountain in the land of Moriah. With this action, Abraham brought to an end an ancient pattern of human sacrifice that had long been an integral part of ceremonial worship on earth.  The rest of the cycle as recorded in the Old Testament is the story of the rise and fall of the nation of Israel, which had several kings and prophets before it came to an end.  Among these was King Solomon.

Solomon’s kingdom was, without exception, of the highest order, first spiritually and, consequently, materially.  Eden was in the process of being restored as heaven and earth were being revealed as the inseparable duality they are.  As Grace depicts in her book, his close attunement with God resulted in a reflection in the material wealth of his earthly kingdom of the heavenly wealth of the heavenly Kingdom of God.  His great wisdom and wealth attracted wisdom and wealth, such as the Queen of Sheba herself  (the only female Egyptian Pharaoh of that era) from the south of Solomon’s kingdom,  as well as King Hiram of Phoenicia from the north.  It was the highest point to which any remnant of human consciousness and civilization had ever risen in the cycles of restoration since the “Fall.” Referencing Immanuel Velikovsky’s book, Ages in Chaos, as her source, Grace speaks of the recognition of Solomon’s greatness by “Queen Sheba” (which turns out to be the name of the queen herself rather than a place):

‘Queen of Egypt and Ethiopia’ is a fitting description of Egypt’s sovereign at that time her kingdom including those countries.  Aside from the unique instance of a female ruler, the record of a pharaoh visiting a foreign king and acknowledging the superiority of that one, exhibited by Sheba, is not to be found anywhere.

Solomon’s glory and his kingdom deteriorated, however, as the king himself began to become subjugated to his great wealth and many wives, by means of whom he had acquired his wealth.

According to the story Grace so graphically portrays, Solomon took unto himself wives who were princesses of the surrounding nations, which then became part of his great kingdom.  In trying to please everyone in order to be accepted as the ruler of the world at that time, he lost his orientation in the one God and soon began to be ruled by his wealth and his “strange wives.” Instead of lifting them up to worship the one God of Abraham, he allowed them to continue in their sacrifices to their pagan gods, he himself joining with them by building altars to these other gods and worshiping them himself. Thus did his reign as a great spiritual and temporal ruler come to its sad demise, as did Queen Sheba’s, who is believed to have been murdered by Thutmose III, her nephew and successor—who also defaced the beautiful bas-reliefs of her image inside the walls of her temple in his covetous lusting after her fame and fortune. 

 This story is an important one in that it tells the tale of the zenith of the cycle and pattern of ascent initiated with Abraham that was intended to reunite Mankind with the One God and Creator of this world and of all its kingdoms, to the end that the kingdoms of this world might once again become “the kingdoms of our Lord and of  his Christ.”   As told by Grace in her book, it is as fascinating as it is foreboding.  If where we as a people are headed today is a repeat of where we have been in the past, then this story is well worth revisiting by the peoples of every nation as an example of how seeds planted inexorably come to harvest and how the divine design cannot be thwarted.

I do not believe, however, that Solomon’s story is a foreboding tale of our own journey.  For we are awakening, none too early, to the victorious nature of our divinely inherited destiny as sons and daughters of God, a tribute we alone cannot claim but must share with all who have gone before us. It is to this I would now like to give deeper consideration.  For our temples of flesh are the living structures upon which are based the architectural designs and ceremonial functions of the great temples of old. Let us continue our exploration.

Sacred Design of the Body Temple

Our body temples, built in the silence of the womb, have a specific and purposeful design.  For example, there is the “encampment” of all the body tissues, organs and systems where the activities of cellular life go on continually and the affairs of nourishment and elimination are carried out.  Then there is the “outer court” of the brain and nervous system, where communication and mental activities are conducted in a contained and highly organized system.  Part of the function in the outer court of the human temple relates to planning and preparation of foods for consumption—and, as we shall see, for sacrificial ceremony.  The primary activity in the outer court relates to the conscious living of life according to the laws that govern life in the universe with a mind that is naturally designed to revere and protect life’s sacred essences and keep sacred things sacred.

These two physical and mental aspects comprise the body temple.  Its spiritual aspects, the Holy Place and the Holy of Hollies, comprise the tabernacle and are rightly hidden from view.  Jesus is recorded to have proclaimed in his day that “the tabernacle of God is with men.”  The tabernacle of that time represented the dwelling place of God. As we shall explore later, the point of entry for the indwelling Spirit of God in our physical temple is established in a safe and sacred place, protected and hidden by a series of veil-like membranes in the center of the brain, corresponding to the tent and veils of the tabernacle of old.

The Holy Place is our heart, or feeling realm, and is of a spiritual nature.  Here is where the things of spirit are sown as seed, conceived and nurtured, then given first-form before they take on thought form in the mind and physical form in the material world of creation.   The heart, then, is a receptacle for spiritual essences as they emerge from out of the core of being.  It is also an altar where the ascending essences of the material world come to be blessed and offered upward.

At the very center of the temple is the Holy of Hollies wherein the Spirit of God dwells with each one.  One could think of it as a portal that opens up into the heavenly realms of light.  Like the Holy Place, it is a spiritual or vibrational space in the heart of hearts. It is known unmistakably during ecstatic moments of holy communion with the Beloved.

While the Holy Place of the heart is where the gifts of God are received into this world, the outer court is where the process of administering and stewarding such gifts of the spirit rightly takes place. Great care is needed here at the mental level of the outer court to protect the Holy Place and to keep the things of God pure and unadulterated by coarser vibrational substance.  The mind’s role is that of a guardian watching over the Holy Place of the heart to keep anything from defiling its delicate, creative atmosphere wherein the seeds of life germinate, open and begin to grow.

That which is sown and conceived in the Holy Place is in the form of blessing and spiritual nourishment for the body temple.  Those blessings are then bestowed upon the cells in the body in the form of life energy and renewal so that through them the blessings of radiant love in action might be extended further out into the world of creation, the natural world, which is our domain.  Thus is the Creator’s dominion extended to all forms in the world of creation through Man.

Ceremony of Ascension

As Grace Van Duzen has described, the entrance to Solomon’s temple was by way of a series of terraces.  Those who entered the temple did so in stages, ascending by way of these terraced steps, singing psalms as they approached the temple.  In our body temples too, as well as in the larger cathedral of the Natural World, both spiritually and physically there are patterns whereby substance may ascend before the throne of God in these temples of flesh and earth, with ceremony and sanctification.   The tradition of offering a prayer of blessing and thanksgiving before meals may be seen as part of this ceremony, preparing these food substances to enter the living temple.  Thus do we give the mineral, vegetable and animal kingdoms voice as they join in worship before the throne of God on earth.  As priests and priestesses we bless them and receive their copious gifts.  In our body temples, there is rightly a temple service of worship in progress.   I will call it the “Ceremony of Ascension.”   This service may be seen in the chemical processes at work continually in the body transforming and transmuting the foods we consume into breathing flesh and releasing their gifts of energy into the muscles and systems.  It is a sacred ceremony.  The derivation of the word ceremony itself is rooted in the word sacred.

The ceremony begins in the Natural World, where the elements seek their appointed paths upward in worship of the Creator. Seeds of previous harvests are soaked and split open by germinating acids that coat them for this specific purpose.  Rays of sunlight warm the good, brown and moist earth accelerating the growth of sprouting seedlings, their tender white and green stems reaching upward to greet His Majesty in the Sun, while their roots reach deep down into the soil to welcome awaiting elements in the fertile womb of Her Majesty and Goddess Gaia. Minerals of various densities deep within the belly of the Earth Mother find their way upward through the vegetable kingdom.  They are then broken apart (chelated) into pieces small enough to pass through the tiny veins of the plants growing in the humus soil above the layers of clay and rocks. Here they will be rearranged in preparation for use in flesh temples.  Organic acids in the soil help with this process, as roots of plants go deep to draw nutrients and water upward in this ancient ritual of ascent.

This sacred process continues in our body temples.  All of the body’s physiology is used in the Ceremony of Ascension and is therefore sacred.  The ceremony is life itself, an eternal, sacred dance of atomic particles winding their way back Home, to ascend with their gifts through the body’s digestive system and to be renewed and sanctified in the presence of their Creator.  Sacred vessels are used in this Ceremony of Ascension. 

We will explore these vessels in the next post of this series. Until then,

Be love. Be loved.

Crucibles for Transmutation and Ascension, page 2: The Body Temple

“Let us make man in our image, after our likeness: and let them have dominion . . . over all the earth.” (Genesis 1:26) 

Continuing to do what is mine to do amid the pivotal turbulence in the world—and joining my many friends and colleagues who are holding a space of love and right expectancy for a creative resolution to the current crises playing out—I invite you to join me in exploring how the biblical temples of old reflect the design inherent in our physical bodies, temples inhabited by angels for the presence of God on Earth.  Let us not forget who we are and what our purpose is for being here at this crucial time of purification of the body of mankind by the fire of Love.  These are end-time days for this mind-made world. There is no way forward for it, nor for those who are trapped in its deceitful ways. A passage from the last chapter of the Book of Revelation comes to mind:

“He that is unjust, let him be unjust still; and he which is filthy, let him be filthy still; and he that is righteous, let him be righteous still; and he that is holy let him be holy still.” 

Holiness is an attribute of angels to whom the human body is sacred. I delight in sharing excerpt from my book, SACRED ANATOMY, which I wrote during the latter part of the previous century and published in the new millennial year of 2005, subtitled Where spirit and flesh dance in the fire of creation.  I will simply begin our journey in the first chapter of the book.

PART I: THE BODY TEMPLE

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

Temple of Flesh.

“Deck thyself now with majesty and excellence”

These words from the Book of Job are both an invitation and a command to be beautiful, upright and glorious in my spirit as well as in my physical form.  Indeed, why would not the temple of the Living God on Earth be decked with majesty and excellence and arrayed with glory and beauty?   Is it not the very House of God in living, breathing, singing flesh?  Did we not deck it with majesty and excellence, beauty and glory from the beginning, when we said,  “Let us make Man in our image, after our own likeness, ” and when the morning stars sang together and the sons and daughters of God shouted for joy?

 Where is our glory now?  How have we paled in majesty and excellence, we who are  God incarnate?  What has become of our flesh, our sacred temples?  Are they merely dust returning unto dust or are they mud lifted up unto splendor?  What do you see when you look at your body? A heap of troublesome flesh or a vibrating, scintillating domicile for divinity?  And who is it that is looking?  The one who needs a body to exist at all, but for a short time, or the One who made this temple in the womb and lives forevermore with or without it?

Look again and see with deeper eyes, with the eyes of the immortal being you are.  What do you see now?  Can you see a dwelling place for your own divine presence as a creator being, a beautiful temple of flesh and bone?  Perhaps I can help us see more than meets the physical eyes.  Let me lend my spiritual eyes for the duration of this book so we can see all that is with us in the sacred anatomy of our physical bodies.

Whether we know it or not, believe it or not, feel it or not, our bodies are temples more splendid than the Gothic cathedrals of Europe and more ornate than the gold-plated mosques of Arabia.  Those temples were raised to appease and worship imaginary gods in far distant heavens. These temples are raised to the living God by angels who descend from out of the realms of light to bring glory to the farthest reaches of creation so that God can dwell with us now in the flesh. Temples of yore were raised to the gods with altars for sacrifice and atonement.  The human temple had become a place of desolation and violence.  Man had lost consciousness of the presence of the divine within himself and so built structures, beautiful structures, to the gods of old and, more recently, to the One God, worshiped today by seventy-two different names throughout the religions of the world.

King Solomon’s temple in Jerusalem was arrayed with much glory and beauty.  Yet when the Master  Jesus ministered in that part of the world he is recorded to have declared that even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed as a single lily of the field.  How much more, he assured us, are we so adorned by our Father in heaven. He was referring to the human being, the design and beauty of which even Solomon’s temple merely reflected.

There are remarkable similarities between these two temples, the one of wood, stone and gold and the one of bone, flesh and spirit.  Solomon’s temple was built according to a very specific design for the purpose of providing a glorious and protective surround for the presence of God.  Built as a permanent resting place for the tabernacle of old, which Moses had made to transport the Ark of the Covenant through the wilderness after the Israelites’ exodus from Egypt, it was constructed mostly out of fir and cedar—the famed and magnificent cedars of Lebanon the Phoenicians used to build their great ships—along with hand-hewed stone for the floor of the inner court.  The entire “House of the Lord” was said to be overlaid with pure gold, just as the Ark of the Covenant had been.

 Similarly, our body temples are constructed with bones—fibrous tissues like unto wooden beams—which are overlaid with connecting tissues of tendons, ligaments and muscles to hold them together and give them flexibility for movement.   The entire structure is imbued and overlaid with the pure essences of love, the spirit of God that gives it breath and moves it about.

Moses’ tabernacle, which served as a portable tent (the literal meaning of the word tabernacle) for the Ark of the Covenant, was divided into three chambers, one at the inner most center and the other two encircling it, each chamber serving a specific function.  The outer court was an entrance and gathering chamber.  It separated the tabernacle from the encampment of the twelve tribes of Israel, where they conducted commerce and the affairs of everyday life.  There was a gate for entering and going forth; in this sense, what separated also connected.

The outer court was the site of activities relating to the mental level—the teaching of the laws handed down to the children of Israel by the LORD God through Moses, by which they were to govern themselves as a nation.   Activities were also conducted relating to the business affairs of the temple, such as the sale of sacrificial animals. The Levites, the thirteenth tribe, comprised the priesthood and were encamped immediately around the tabernacle.

Within the surround of the outer court was a containment called the “Holy Place.”  This chamber was kept holy and pure by the priests and ministers of the temple who prepared and conducted worship services representing Yahweh to his people and his people to Yahweh. A single doorway connected the Holy Place with the outer court.

 In the heart of the temple within the Holy Place, hidden and protected by a series of veils and much like a jewel in its setting,  was the “Holy of Hollies” where the spirit of God dwelt on earth with His chosen people.  Herein only the High Priest could enter, which he did once each year.  God’s presence with the Israelites was represented through the design of the temple with its priesthood, focused by the High Priest.

There was a specific design to the tabernacle which Moses built in the wilderness as well as the temple which Solomon would build about five hundred years later. Both of these temples reflected a design inherent in the human body.

Temples of King Solomon and Queen Sheba

Around 1000 BC King Solomon built a temple to house the Ark of the Covenant in Jerusalem according to the same design as the tabernacle of Moses, only much larger and more permanent and therefore more elaborate. He built it in honor of Melchizedek the King and High Priest of Salem.

(The word “Salem” derives from “Shalom,” a greeting of “Peace be to you.”  Thus the name “Jerusalem,” which means “City of Peace,” stands, even to this day of irony and paradox, as the name of a city torn by conflict and war throughout most of its turbulent yet enduring history.) 

The late biblical scholar and historian Grace Van Duzen (1912-2004) had studied these matters over many years and visited the Great Pyramid of Gizeh in Egypt, as well as other places in the Holy Land.  She also visited a temple at Deir el Bahari that was built by the “Queen of Sheba,” believed now to be the famed Queen Hatshepsut, near Thebes along the Nile River.  She built it after the design of Solomon’s temple, which the queen had seen when she visited Solomon.  Grace’s recently published masterpiece, THE BOOK Of GRACE — A Cosmic View Of The Bible, offers fresh and realistic insight into the stories in the Bible.  She describes Solomon’s temple in remarkable detail:

It would have been an awe-inspiring experience to enter the temple of Solomon.  The approach was by “ascents” or tiers which led to the interior of the temple.  Psalms 120 – 134, each called a “Song of degrees,” were sung on the tiers as the priests made their ascent to the increasingly sacred places in the temple. The oracle, or most holy place, would correspond to the Holy of Hollies in the tabernacle, which housed the cherubim.  In the grand temple, the 15-feet-high magnificent figures with the 15-feet wingspans which touched each other, would have been a glorious sight….   

The pattern of the human being, temple of the living God, embodies the same divine blueprint. The building of Solomon’s temple was in silence. Anything requiring noise was done outside.   The silence is a factor in all of God’s creation as the gift of heaven is endowed with Earth’s substance.  The wings of the two cherubim poetically depict the human brain, its positive and negative aspects in perfect harmony, fulfilling their divinely ordained function as created.  An awesome instrument, its design provides Almighty God (the power that created the universe) with the instrument whereby His Will may bring forth in Earth’s substance a unique form of the wonder and beauty of the cosmos.   (pp. 326-327)

Grace describes the Deir el Bahari temple that the “Queen of Sheba” built near Thebes in Eypt:

Today one can visit a magnificent temple at Deir el Bahari near Thebes, nestled against a wall of rose-colored cliffs.  I thoroughly enjoyed my visit there and marveled at the bas-reliefs on its walls that depict the reign of Queen Hatshepsut the outstanding event of which was her visit to a “holy land.”  This temple was built by the Queen of Sheba on her return from her visit to King Solomon, a small replica of his glorious edifice in Jerusalem.

Exquisite pictures adorn the walls of the Queen of Sheba’s temple in Egypt, revealing a dignified people with features unlike the Egyptians and a mystery to many through the years. These were Solomon’s people, whom the Queen described as happy and blessed, living in a glorious land which she called “God’s.”  She returned with gifts in abundance, pictured on the walls of her temple and itemized in the biblical record.  They included rare animals, flowers of all kinds and rare trees. . . .

. . . It is amazing that this replica, built on a very small scale, is the key, on a visual level, to the design and glory of Solomon’s mighty temple.  Even the ascents to the temple can be seen and traversed.  It has been called an “accident” in Egyptian architecture; nothing like it has ever been seen there and it is regarded by many as the most beautiful building in Egypt. When this temple was constructed a new temple service was initiated.  Twelve priests, with a high priest heading them, officiated before the altar.  The office of the high priest was established in the Egyptian service at the time of Queen Hatshepsut. (pg. 335)

Solomon’s kingdom represented the culmination of a failed cycle of restoration of the Body of Mankind—which began to move, actually, with Seth, one of Adam’s sons, out of whose lineage came Noah and, through Noah’s lineage, Abraham. The cycle was initiated with the sparing of Isaac’s life as he was about to be slain in a sacrificial offering by Abraham, his father, upon a mountain in the land of Moriah. With this action, Abraham brought to an end an ancient pattern of human sacrifice that had long been an integral part of ceremonial worship on earth.  The rest of the cycle as recorded in the Old Testament is the story of the rise and fall of the nation of Israel, which had several kings and prophets before it came to an end.  Among these was King Solomon.

I welcome your thoughts and comments. We will continue the journey in my next post.  Until then,

Be love. Be loved.

Crucibles for Transmutation and Ascension, page 1

All Creation seeks to return to the Creator.

How consciously aware are you that the eggs and bacon, or yogurt and fruit, you had for breakfast this morning are being transformed and transmuted into flesh and bone and lifted up to a higher vibratory level, seeking a path back to the Creator? A rather lofty thought to begin one’s day . . . and why not?

Well, at least some of our food’s essences ascend.  What can’t ascend falls back down as ash in order to participate further in Creation. The principle at work here is all things seek to return to their origin.  All of Creation seeks to return to the Creator of heaven and earth.  Our planet itself is a crucible for transmutation and ascension with its destination bent towards the Sun, its source of origin—becoming a sun itself.  Our moon is attracted towards its earthly origin, perhaps to become an habitable planet one day.  The elemental world of Creation just seems to want to find its way back to its origin.  

According to Walter Russell, who re-invented the Periodic Table of Elements, even the elemental world is exhibiting a continual evolutionary transformation and transmutation, ascending and descending from one vibratory level to the next.

The elements of matter are an orderly and periodic accumulation and redistribution of energy. . . .  Each element is greater in its mass than its predecessor because of the generative power of electricity which acts as a brake against high axial speed and diverts it into accumulating mass.

The very elements that make up our world, then, are illusory and transitory. Iron, for instance, was once manganese, and copper was once gold based on constantly changing frequencies as the ascending spiral of invisible energy arranges and rearranges atoms and molecules in a cymatic shape-shifting creating process. The Periodic Table of Elements itself is but a snapshot of a constantly changing ascending and descending vortex of creating energy. Fascinating, isn’t it! 

Stay with me here as I offer you an opportunity to let the windmill of your mind be turned by the wind of Walter Russel’s spirit turning his own mind while delivering his brilliant truth as a scientist whose thinking is far outside the box of conventional science that resists upgrades to its sacred dogmas.  Walter Russell—described by one author as “the man who knew the secrets of the Universe,”—is to elemental science and physics what Immanuel Velikovsky was to earth science and astronomy.  Try not to “think” with your mind as you read this but simply let the current in Russell’s words flow through your mind and find its way into your heart where true thinking and understanding take place.  

From THE UNIVERSAL ONE

THE ELEMENTS OF MATTER

The elements of matter are but varying aggregations of corpuscular light units gathered together in systems familiarly known as atoms.  Atomic systems differ from solar and stellar systems solely in dimension.  In substance, structure and appearance they are exactly similar.

It has heretofore been stated that all effects of motion are repetitive.  Mass is an effect of motion and mass is repetitive, with no change whatsoever in its repetition save dimension.  A “bigger” atom such as a solar system is not different from an elemental atom of the same tone in any way but size.  Dimension is purely relative. The law for little mass is the same law as for big mass.

The elements are supposed to be many different substances, each of which is known by a different name.  Each element is supposed to be that one substance and only that.

An atom of mercury or sodium is supposed to be an atom of mercury or sodium which always has been and always will be that and nothing else.

The very foundation stone of modern physics states unequivocally in its explanation of the principles of energy conservation: “Not one particle of matter, however small, may be created or destroyed. All the king’s horses and all the king’s men cannot destroy a pin head.”

Matter constantly progresses through the cycle of disappearance and reappearance.  Every pulsation of thinking Mind brings particles into appearance and relegates others into disappearance.  Matter is evolving and devolving as all other forms of life are evolving and devolving.

A sodium particle is not always a sodium particle. It changes its dimensions in an orderly and periodic manner until it has run the gamut of all the elements of every octave, and returned to its own octave.  A radium article was once a light unit of hydrogen and will be so again.  More than this, an atom of any element actually contains within itself all of the other elements.

An atom of gold is a gold atom in dimension only.  It is not even preponderantly of the substance of gold.  It is everything else in the universe. Everything that is, is of everything else that is.  Nothing is of itself alone.

Consider for a moment an atom of manganese or an atom of iron, both of which are very similar in structure.  Instead of thinking of it as an inconceivable little thing, for the purpose of comparison imagine it magnified until it is as big as this solar system.

One would not think of this vast solar system as an atom of any one of the elements, for one knows that all of the elements are contained within it.  Yet this solar system is either a manganese or an iron atom.  As nearly as the relater can determine without precise mathematical computation and while awaiting calculation of other dimensions it is one or the other of these elements.

Its plane and extension of ecliptic, its color as a tonal system, its tonal syllable in the octave scale, its endothermic relativity as a charging system, its tonal density, temperature and other dimensions, place it within a practical certainty as one of these two elements.

Later, when calculations have been made in accordance with the relater’s formula, the relative age of this system, its exact tonal orbit, its potential position, plane, ecliptic expansion and extension will be exactly known.

This first volume will not, however, be encumbered with mathematics.

The basic principles of motion under which the One living Being functions in His thinking are simple, and simply must they be written down.  The day of the mathematician will come in the adaptation of those principles.

This solar system, being just one huge atom of iron or manganese, let us say, and to our knowledge containing all of the elements of the entire ten octave cycle in their proper proportions, can it not now be clearly seen that the concept of the elements as separate and distinct substances of exact homogeneity throughout their structures, is untenable in this universe of repetitiveness in all of its effects of motion?

Cannot it then be seen that it is not the substance itself which determines its effect as an element but merely its position, and its dimensions, in its octave constant?

Cannot it also be clearly seen that the substance of the element for which it has been named is not even preponderant in its own element?

This solar system, which is true to plane as iron or manganese, is not preponderantly iron or manganese in its composition. It could not be. It contains vastly larger proportions of many of the other elements and yet some cosmic giant might gather up a handful of such systems as ours, which to him would be a solid, and analyze them in his laboratory as iron or manganese atoms.

Therefore let old concepts of many separate substances be discarded and replaced with the true concept of but the One universal substance of many apparent dimensions, known to man in the language of inner thinking, the language of light.

There is but one cosmic substance.  This One substance appears to be divided into many substances, known as the elements of matter.

The One universal substance first divides itself into the appearance of two opposite states of motion which register as positive and negative elements.

Then two more opposite elements appear. Then two more opposite elements of increasing potential and harder crystallization appear.

The cosmic pendulum then forms one element which registers itself as neither one opposite nor the other but is equally of each; a bisexual element of maximum opposition in all periodicities of motion.

These seven apparently different substances are but different states of motion of the One substance. They are the seven tones of an octave, and there are ten octaves of seven tones each.

In the last four octaves are many mid-tones, each one registering its own state of motion. Man calls those various states of motion of the one substance by many names, and they appear to be many substances. The apparent difference between the many is due solely to difference of motion and not to substance.

Many states of motion are possible, but there are not two substances in the universe. All states of motion are measurable and are under the absolute control of Mind.  As man is Mind, man can, with dawning knowledge of causes, change any one state of motion into any other state of motion, and by so doing transmute any one substance into any other.

The granite rock may become gold, or radium, at the will of man.

THE CRUCIBLE YOU ARE

I love letting my structured thinking become more plastic and fluid so as to meld with Russell’s free-thinking mind.  And where do we human beings fit and function in this ongoing cycle of elemental transmutation and ascension?  That’s where I want to go in this series, and you are welcome to go with me and perhaps see things that I don’t and share what you see.  

Have you ever thought of yourself as a crucible for transmutation, for instance?  Crucibles are containers that generate or refocus and channel energy.  With sufficient intensification, creative energy ignites into an ascending flame of transmuting fire—in human beings, angelic fire.  I have personally experienced such a conflagration in and throughout my body with such intensity that I felt my body would catch fire and go up in flames.  It didn’t, of course . . . go up that is. It’s still with me, for now anyway, and until such time as I release it back to return to its earthly origin.  I do expect to transmute some of it to a higher and finer essence and take it with me back Home.  I believe that’s part of our role as incarnate angels: to bring some of the essences of creation—tithes if you will—back to the Creator and giver of life.

Our work as angels incarnate includes transmuting physical substance with the transforming fire of love so that it can ascend to higher vibratory levels. Our body’s digestive and hormonal chemistry and physiology are designed and directed to this end and purpose.  We spend our days and nights transmuting seemingly lifeless raw material into living flesh, and living flesh into mental and emotional levels of energy, and still higher into spiritual essences.  In a word, we live and have our being within the ascending Flame of Love. 

Is there further work to be undertaken, then, by us angels incarnate in the larger cycle of the Creative Process to facilitate and move along the complete transmutation of the elements that make up the planet so that the earth itself and its inhabitants can move gracefully in the ascending and unifying Flame of Love? I believe there is.

I invite you to take an inspirational journey with me through the sacred terrain of the physical body as seen by the angels who incarnate on earth to live and experience their divinity in the flesh, bone and blood of the human temple. This blog journey will take us into a rather profound and prophetic consideration of our destiny as Earthlings on a planet that is shifting frequency in order to adapt to the Fourth Density it has already entered, rocking the boat, so to speak, of human existence.  Hold onto your seats—or let go to the inevitability of radical shifts in our experience of reality. Our species is undergoing a complete vibrational upgrade.

As always, I welcome thoughts and comments from my readers. I will continue in this series next weekend when I will reveal in poetic detail how these biblical temples reflect the design inherent in our physical bodies. Until then,

Be love. Be loved.

I received several responses to my previous post, which I always welcome and truly appreciate.  Don Hynes’s poem, from which the above quote is taken, found resonance in many.  With this post, I wish to visit my previous post where I intentionally omitted two phrases from the passage I borrowed from Martin Exeter’s service, which I did simply in an effort to be discrete so as not to place word barriers in anyone’s way that may bar them from reading on and hearing what I had to say.

The phrases I omitted are “the blatherings of Satan” and the phrase referring to angels “presenting themselves before the Lord and refusing to be distracted by Satan.”  My rationale is that words, like “Lord” and “Satan,” carry familiar baggage accumulated over the years from repeated usage with limited understanding . . . which also makes them useful in connecting with an audience.  The Master Jesus referenced the “laws and the prophets” and spoke in parables to connect with the people of his day.  With his disciples, whom he came to call “friends,” he spoke more directly as they had become seasoned enough for straight talk without the necessity for parables.   

Since the time these words of Lord Exeter were spoken some forty-three years ago, human consciousness has begun to awaken to the awareness of the oneness of heaven and earth in a multidimensional world of Reality. Those of us who have awakened to the truth know that neither God nor Satan are separate from human beings.  God is not “up there in heaven,” and Satan is not “down there in hell” somewhere, or lurking around whispering evil thoughts into our ears.  God is “so close as to not even be near,” as one spiritual author wrote, and Satan is none other than our own human mind when it is self-active and running its own thoughts rather than being the still lens it was created to be focusing the truth of love for our expression in living.  It can play the role of Satan with its blathering, or it can play the role of Lucifer, the Light-bearer.  My mind is at my command, and I decide the role it will play: “Be still and know that I Am your lord, Lucifer, and the Lord of lords is my Lord, to whom alone I am answerable.” Within the divine order and cosmology, there exists a network of focused points of light, some greater than others, nevertheless all contained within the wholeness of the One Supreme Being and Creator of the Universe. Thus the phrases “Lord of lords” and “King of kings.”

Perhaps I could take the liberty of paraphrasing so as to bring it all closer to home. For example: “I present my outer self before my inner Self and tell my blathering mind to be quiet and focus on what I have to say and do!”  That could be seen as the first step toward the resolution of noisome dissonance in my consciousness: stop the blathering of the mind and be quiet. The next step might best be understood in the context of this phrase: “I present myself in silence before the LORD of lords, having put my blathering mind behind me.” Just saying this effects an inner alignment of my human capacities—and attunement with the WORD, another verbal symbol for the LORD.  Yet, even this does not entirely remove the connotation of separateness. 

Finite words, symbols that they are, fall short in the effort to articulate infinite reality. It may be that we have come to that moment in time where silence alone is all that is necessary to resolve the dissonance in our collective consciousness and in the world. I recall a phrase from the Scriptures that says something about silence: “The Lord is in his holy temple. Let all the earth keep silence before Him.” (Habakkuk 20:20) There are times while watching the news that I know the meaning of this passage and I simply reach for the remote control and turn off the television, and the blathering of the media.     

I would now like to present an excerpt from an evocative service given by Lord Martin Exeter (1909-1988) given back in 1979.  Lord Martin Cecil Exeter became the Seventh Marquees of Exeter with the passing of his brother in 1981, He first moved to the Cariboo in the 1930s to take care of his family’s large ranch at 100 Mile House, BC., where he played a central role in its development.  In this excerpt, Lord Exeter speaks candidly to the reality of angelic presence in the world of dissonance and specifically how we as angels present ourselves to people in our worlds.  In his address to this particular gathering, he refers to those present as “emissaries,” signifying those who represent a higher realm of Being to a lower; in this case the Creator to creation. He speaks specifically to the “stature” of the angels incarnate and the role the angels play in the resurrection and ascension—first of human consciousness and then of the earth—to a higher level of being.

Whether or not human beings are aware, we are creator beings. As creator-beings—another term for angels—we incarnated on Earth at the bequest of our Creator.  In effect, we volunteered to come here and represent the Creator to His creation and creation to the Creator.  Included in our domain of representation are the people on earth—each of us individually having those in our immediate worlds for whom we are responsible in our representation.  Martin offers a comparative perspective with regard to the size of the earth, which may seem large to us, whereas in comparison to our universe, our planetary domicile and domain are very small.  On the other hand, the One whom we represent is large in comparison to the angel, and the countless host of angels that are in God are each one as a grain of sand in comparison to God. So we represent something very great and large to a rather small and seemingly insignificant world, and something comparatively small to an Almighty God.  If we think of this in terms of stature, our angelic stature is large relative to humans, while being quite small relative to God.

Martin speaks forthrightly to incarnate angels everywhere who are emerging in an apocalypse of angelic light speaking truth to power and handling situations in the world with assurance and integrity:

As angels, we do not wish to behave in a brash manner. At the same time we should never deny our stature in our dealings and relationships with the people. It seems that very often emissaries have felt at a disadvantage somehow when working with people in the world. What is meant when it is indicated that one should be spiritual? In the human view this means innocuous, unimportant, unnecessary. The attitude of human nature is that it can get along very well without anything spiritual, except possibly as some sort of an adjunct to human nature. If spiritual things can be used to advantage in what human nature wants to do, well let’s include spiritual things. But it is all self‑centered, isn’t it? As angels, we are certainly not at any disadvantage with respect to people. Our stature is vast relative to the stature of any particular human nature. And while this should not make us conceited—this is angelic nature—we certainly would not deny our authority or our ability to handle what needs to be handled as angels.

The Master never denied His own reality. Occasionally that seemed to get Him into hot water, but He was able to handle the hot water quite easily—no problem. As there is the greater emergence into expression of the angelic nature, we find ourselves at a considerable advantage in the world and in our dealings with people. We really know what it is that is going on, whereas human beings in the world have very little idea as to what is going on. They see things in a very restricted way. There is a very limited outlook and a great deal of uncertainty. Of course human nature puts on a good front occasionally, but let us not be fooled by that. As incarnate angels we are far more capable of handling what needs to be handled than anyone else is, no matter how much of an expert they may be. I’m not speaking particularly of some sort of technical expertise in which we might not be well‑versed. I am thinking of this more in terms of the handling of human nature, the handling of people. In all aspects of human nature function where people are concerned, we need to recognize that we ourselves have a far larger vision, a far greater understanding, than human nature people could possibly have. So we don’t downgrade ourselves. Let’s not put the day off, so that we have to be presented with some particular situation before we will admit that we really do know. Why not admit that we really do know right now?

The pressure of our representation of God to the people—which is what it is—is not particularly in question at the moment, at least not in a specific way in the external sense; but the opportunities will arise certainly in the days to come, where all of you will be handling people and situations in a manner that reveals your capacity to represent God. God isn’t silly and God isn’t stupid. God understands what the situation is. If we represent Him, that is true of us. We don’t need to bog ourselves down in some vast cosmic view and say, “Well I don’t understand that.” That’s not the point. Why would it be necessary to understand that? The only thing that is necessary is to understand the field of our own responsibility which, much of the time, is seemingly quite small. But occasionally we find ourselves projected into a situation where there are other people who are presumably supposed to be experts, but we find out that they are not, that we know a lot more than they do. They have all the book-learning which we may not have, but we have the understanding—and it’s not “Let it be by the hand of another,” but “Let it be by the Word of God.” And we are on hand to speak the Word of God.

Human beings have peculiar concepts about the Word of God—a sort of rolling thunder expression. But I don’t think you have much acquaintance with the Word of God in that clothing; that only happens in movies, doesn’t it, where a disembodied, echoing voice comes on the scene. That isn’t really the way it works. That’s fanciful imagination. Man was created with the voice mechanism so that the Word of God could be spoken on earth. And if the voice mechanism of man is not available to be used, the Word of God is not spoken on earth. But we are offering this mechanism for use, and so the Word of God can be spoken on earth because we are here and because we are handling these situations. And we don’t have any concept that what we say must sound as though it was God speaking, because that would be pandering to human nature, wouldn’t it? And it wouldn’t go down very well with human nature either.

All that is necessary is to speak the words that are necessary and that are fitting in the situation as it arises, having an awareness that we are the ones to handle it. This doesn’t mean either that we go barging in and pushing everybody else aside and say, “Well now I’m going to handle this!” We have no evidence that the Master ever did any such thing. He was quite discreet. However, when He found Himself in a situation, He did not deny His own reality. And He found Himself in a situation very often where the ball was tossed to Him. And we will find ourselves in such situations, partly because people want to test out, but partly also because there is an increasing awareness on the part of many that here is someone who could have the answer. So if the ball is tossed to us we handle it in whatever way may be fitting. We may hold onto the ball and provide what is necessary in a direct way. On the other hand it may be fitting sometimes to toss the ball back. The Master was very expert at this, so that those who were trying to put Him on the spot found themselves put on the spot.

What He said on such occasions has been clothed in a certain type of language, in the King James version of the Bible, which commonly we would not speak nowadays. That has tended to give a sort of aura which is deemed to characterize the words of God, as though we had to speak in Biblical language. No, we speak in the tongue that is now understood. We speak in tongues in this sense, so that those to whom we speak can understand us and can have the opportunity of receiving what it is we offer, without our engendering wrong reactions by what we say or how we say it. We learn to be very diplomatic on many occasions; we also learn to be very forthright on some occasions—whatever is fitting. And as we learn to offer what is spiritually fitting we are speaking the Word of God. This is the way by which what needs to be done on earth in our fields of responsibility may be done. We find that our stature is far greater than human nature stature.

Let us not ever try to inflate ourselves in human nature, because somebody is going to prick the balloon and then there is a sense of being shattered. On that basis one is always on the defensive. We are not on the defensive. We are just offering into every situation what is needed there. But our stature relative to human nature is great. We need to have a consciousness of this as our angelic nature emerges, begins to come forth. We are small before God, but we are large before people. I would stress the fact that being large before people doesn’t mean that we stand up and beat our chests. It just means that we reveal that we are capable. We are capable of doing whatever it is that needs to be done. We don’t thrust ourselves forward, but when we find the ball is in our hands we carry it, we do with it whatever is necessary. But there needs to be this sense of stature relative to human nature, so that you are never intimidated by human nature. You represent God to the people—and you couldn’t do this without being large. So there comes a consciousness of stature. It is enhanced by reason of the fact that one does find out, in various situations, that it really is true, that one has the stature. And, for some at least, there may be a little amazement to find out that one was so much more capable than everybody else in the human nature field. This is not to say that we may not find that there are those in the human nature field still who at the same time have some sensing of the reality of angelic stature. These people you will find work with you. Sometimes it will seem that the most unlikely people are the ones who work with you. The ones you have fingered as being the ones are not the ones at all. You let it prove itself out while retaining your own integrity and your own stature, your own sense of angelic nature.

So there is this largeness in the representation of God in one’s own experience but smallness in representing the people to God. There is always humility before God. This obviously is representing the right attitude of the people toward God: you are humble before God, you are very conscious of your insignificance in God. But the fact of insignificance in God, because God is so limitless, in no way denies your stature in the world. We have that stature, we are responsible for it. This is related to the upward view and the downward view. There is another way this is sometimes considered—the inward view and the outward view. Now we can see how this inward view, when people look in, there is a tendency for them to think that they are looking toward something rather small. And when we look out it’s this vastness—we live in a big world, and that big world goes on and on and on in a vast universe. We think of the largeness therefore as being external and the smallness internal, which, from our previous considerations, you can see is just the reverse of the fact. The smallness is external, the largeness is internal.

It has been said that we do not live inside our bodies but that our bodies live inside of us, at the center of our rather large energetic field, similar to the earth at the center of its gigantic magnetic field.  Our spirit is much larger than our form.  I welcome your thoughts as you wish to share them. Until then,

Be love. Be loved.

The Garden of Consciousness — “As Above So Below”

🎶 This little light of mine, I’m gonna let it shine . . . Let it shine, let it shine, let it shine. 🎶

Fig trees provide an archway in our back yard paradise

Co-creation At Home

The picture of our back yard above stands as a living example of how easily creation can unfold out of our consciousness where there is partnering with Nature.  Our yard didn’t always look so paradisal. It was totally destroyed back in 2005 when Hurricane Rita came through and uprooted our great sycamore tree and other trees in our back yard.  It was a surreal disaster.

At first, restoring our yard seemed an insurmountable task. Being a man and physician, I suggested we have a professional landscaper come in and “fix it.” Bonnie, on the other hand, wanted us to restore it ourselves, which we did—and it was fun doing it as we both loved working with the situation just as it was and expressing our creativity into it, which eventually transformed it into the garden spot it is today.  We did bring one of our sons, Leo, into the setting who contributed his carpentry skills into repairing the damage to our home—along with much-appreciated loving enfoldment and emotional support. Thank you again, Leo.

It took more time than a landscaper would likely have taken, but then we would have missed out on the joy of creating it together as ideas came to us, taking one task at a time. Realizing and implementing those ideas was a large part of the fun and joy. Then, watching Mother Nature take what we had accomplished and put Her finishing touches on it, we saw our yard grow and blossom as only She knows how. And now we have the pleasure of enjoying our little piece of paradise right here at home.

Here’s what our back yard looked like after the storm debris was cleared off.

 

 

 

 

 

And here’s our back yard today!

The Garden of Eden and The Garden of Paradise

I’ve been meditating on the biblical Garden of Eden, variously thought to have been located somewhere on earth. However, Eden may be considered more a heavenly garden than an earthly one; an internal garden rather than an external one. Paradise may be thought of as an external garden—an earthly paradise, which still exists in the pristine wilderness of this planet.

I’ve come to see the Garden of Eden as a Garden of Consciousness in which the seeds of Paradise are sown by the Creator.  Out of the Heaven of Divine Consciousness Paradise is born on Earth. We see it all around us in the God-made world of Mother Nature.

On the same basis, out of human consciousness is born the mind-made world of mankind into which we are born and live out our lives.  It’s simply the way creation works: from invisible heaven to visible earth. “As above so below.”

Our sun rises in the East as our planet rotates towards the future. It’s where the Garden of Eden is planted—by the LORD God.  I think this is important for us to understand.  Our today’s come prepared for us by the Lord: “This is the day which the Lord has made. Let us rejoice and be glad in it.” 

We know that Man did not plant the Garden of Eden.  The LORD God planted this Garden.  Man was placed in the Garden of Eden to dress and keep it— not to seed it with his own ideas as to how the Earth should be created and utilized. The CREATING IDEA for the Earth is in the MIND of the Creator, planted in the Garden of Eden, in the sacred soil of Divine Consciousness, as seed for the creation of the Earth and for all the plants, creatures and critters that live on the earth. I see the earth as the Garden of Paradise, the physical manifestation of the Garden of Eden.

Original Man was the creation of Elohim, a council of Divine Beings, as we saw in an  earlier post.  Man, created male and female in the image and likeness of God, was endowed by the Creator with the privilege, and the responsibility, of participating with God in creation by dressing and keeping the Garden.

It would serve us well to remember what this privilege actually entails—and what it doesn’t.  To start with, it does not entail the right to plunder Paradise for our own self-serving pleasure and enrichment.  That is what caused the Fall, and what has maintained the separation of human consciousness from Divine Consciousness. What it does entail is aptly contained in words penned by Lloyd A. Meeker (Uranda): “Let love radiate without concern for results.”  In other words, I am responsible for maintaining an atmosphere of love in the Garden of Consciousness.

Spiritual Man was endowed with a consciousness of his own, which went with him when he left Eden and incarnated in physical man on earth—“fell into creation,” as one reader described it in a comment—and to this day he has cultivated it as a garden in which he plants his own seeds—the seeds of competition and discontent, of greed and envy, the seeds of war.  Basically the seeds that will bring forth the kind of world in which he wants to live with all the self-serving comforts and pleasures it can afford.  This world is not in harmony with the Natural world of Paradise, which the Creator maintains with minimal help from mankind.  It seems that man is determined to continue building his world on top of God’s world, slashing and burning it to make room to grow food for his belly, and drilling it to produce fuel for his machines. 

The usurper and self-appointed ruler of human consciousness is the self-active human mind, which has assumed its own identity, the “human ego,” which many an ambitious leader has inflated in order to exercise power and control over others and the world, especially the world of Nature, Gaia’s Paradise, the cornucopia of the resources for life on Earth.  Even now he is eyeing the pristine National Parks of America with intent to harvest their hidden treasures of oil and minerals, Gaia’s very blood and bones. He has no respect for the Earth, nor for life.

Do I paint a too painfully accurate picture?  And do you detect a righteous tone in my words?  Perhaps it is because I do have a bit of righteous anger in my heart, tempered only by compassion for the deceived masses of humanity, as I look at what has become of mankind on Earth, and what a miserable and desperate condition we’ve created in human consciousness, out of which only misery and desperation can be born.  I use the word “righteous” in its literal sense of “right-use-ness,” of which there’s been a gross lack.  Little wonder Man ejected himself from the Garden of Eden, out of God’s Heaven, and separated himself from Divine Consciousness by his commandeering of the Creating Process.  

And now we want to get back into Eden?  We can’t “get back” into Eden, at least not as we are in our fallen state of consciousness.  We have to welcome the Edenic state into our consciousness, then co-create Paradise out of that heaven.  Anything we might endeavor to do to create a Paradise on Earth is a waste of precious energy and resource without first letting Eden, Heaven, be restored to human consciousness.  The mind’s bright ideas haven’t worked in the past and there is no reason to think they will work now.  They only make living conditions on the planet worse. 

Mankind may be like Man, but mankind is not Man.  Original Man is a spiritual being made in the image and likeness of God, who is Spirit, presently and temporarily incarnate in human form.  What we call “mankind” is a substitute for Man, a temporary creation “formed” from the dust of the ground, nevertheless used by an all-wise and merciful God as a means of incarnating on Earth in order to steer the evolutionary process of Restoration.

This is what I see underway on Earth in our day—has  been since the Fall.  It has taken this long for the evolution of human consciousness to reach a level of transformation that is sufficiently enlightened to accommodate the conscious emergence and revelation of incarnate angelic hosts through the bodies of as many human beings as are willing and transmute them in an apocalypse of Light.

It has also taken this long—after at least two failed opportunities—for the vibratory conditions in the energetic field of our planet and solar system, as well as cosmic factors in our relation, for example, to the constellations of Orion and The Pleiades, and our position in the energy belts of our Milky Way Galaxy, for the Restoration to be at all possible.  We are here, along with countless heavenly hosts, to steward this process so that Man can be restored to God and return to the Garden of Eden, where we will co-create with God a Garden of Paradise for and on the New Earth. It is why we incarnated. We are the appointed ones to get the job done.

I sense that time is at hand.  As I sat out with Bonnie in our paradisal back yard this evening, I felt a powerful wave of peace move through my body, moving across the entire globe.  I feel it even now as I write. Something of cosmic proportion is happening in the solar system, in the earth and in the body of Humanity. A New Heaven is descending upon human consciousness—the Heaven of Divine Consciousness—and already sown in its fecund soil are the vibrational seeds that hold sacred the patterns of design and control for the New Earth, along with instructions on how we are to go about co-creating Paradise here on earth.

In order to make room for the “New Jerusalem” descending from God out of Heaven, we must unclutter our consciousness of all the accoutrements and pabulum of the mind-made world to prepare our hearts to receive it.  John the Beloved describes it as “the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down from God our of heaven, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband.” In other words, as one who is loved with all of one’s heart, all of one’s mind, and all of one’s strength.

Shining the Light of Love

At the moment we are facing “darkness upon the face of the deep.” Just as darkness was upon the face of the deep in the Beginning, so is the New Earth emerging in a shroud of darkness. Darkness is the condition in which the seeds of change gestate and develop, out of sight and mental observation that typically leads to judgment and temptation to interfere.  I suspect that as the New Heaven gives birth to the New Earth, it will be unlike anything we’ve ever imagined or expected.  I pray we will not fall for the temptation to judge it as it evolves and interfere with the Creating Process, but let it be what it is and simply shine our “little light” into the darkness.  All creating cycles move toward oneness, from love—and already I see the Light of a New Dawn shining in the darkness; shining through emissaries of Light Divine throughout the world, angels coming forth in expression.

Let love radiate without concern for results.  As we are faithful to this one important and pivotal role, we can be assured that there will be results, and we will be surprised and greatly blessed, as will the Earth. 

Paradise, as I said, is still materializing on Earth. There are still parts of the planet that have not been consumed by man and left barren.  Therefore there is a harmonious chord of synergy between Heaven and Nature manifesting beauty and sustainability with which we may partner, synchronize our life styles, alter the course of devolution and extinction of our species, and halt the total destruction of Paradise.  As we attune to the harmonious music of Mother Nature and dance to her rhythms and seasons, She welcomes us back and gladly accommodates our metamorphosis and restoration to the Creator of the heavens and the earth.  She awaits our return, and the return of her Beloved Creator to her Garden.

We are not alone in the process of transformation.  The entire Universe is with us as we turn around—the literal meaning of repent-–from our downward spiral to a dying exit from this earthly plane and start our journey back to Eden and an upward spiral that takes us back Home by way of ascension. No one need suffer or perish. We are loved more than we will ever know by the One who desires nothing more than to come into His Garden here on Earth, filled with peace and the fine substance of love. Love for this One with our all, and love for one another as our Self, is the only true way our personal and collective garden of consciousness can be prepared to receive the New Heaven for the New Earth.

I welcome any thoughts you may have. Until we meet again on this blog,  

Be love. Be loved.

Getting Back to Eden, part 4: The Process of Transformation

“In my father’s house there are many mansions.” — Jesus 

The passage above from the Gospel of John (14:2-4) has been a light of hope to many. The Aramaic text may be more likely what Jesus said speaking the language of the people:

“There are many lodgings in my Father’s house, and if not, I would have told you, because I go to prepare a place for you.  And if I go and prepare a place for you, I shall come again and bring you to join me, that where I am you shall be also.  And where I am going, you know, and you know the way.” 

The Teacher had a great love for his disciples, whom he called friends, and desired nothing more than that they should come to know what he knew and experience what he was experiencing.  I note that he said where I am” and not where I will be. He was on Earth in clear view of his disciples speaking with them days after his ordeal with death followed by his resurrection from the tomb, obviously in a transformed body—and I don’t think he was messing with their minds, telling them something that was not possible. As we have come to know over the millennia, transformation is possible and doable, here and now, and the “way,” as he had taken great pains to show them and all of mankind, is unconditional love: “I have only one command: that ye love one another as I have loved you.” And he loved those who came to his light just the way they presented themselves.

He had obviously ascended to a higher mansion in his father’s house, and they were yet feeling their way around on the ground floor trying to make sense of all that had just transpired so violently and unexpectedly, along with the changes they were feeling in their energetic fields just being in their Master’s presence those few years before he “ascended into heaven.” There is much teaching in this story.

The Many Mansions

We move from lower to higher levels of Being as we go through transformation, each level having its own energetic frequency—a transformed or stepped-down frequency of the ONE TONE of LOVE at the highest level of oneness with the Divine. There are those “ascended masters” who have reached that level during their incarnation, never to return again to the physical plane. All of us reincarnate until we learn to master each and every level of consciousness and are ready to ascend—and we cannot ascend from one level to the next without letting go of those coarse elements in the fabric of our outer being that are energized and maintained by the frequency of love specific to the level where we find ourselves—elements that cannot exist in a higher plane and frequency.

A friend, former associate, and colleague in the healing field, Dr. Lawrence Bakur, posted this view and perspective of the current human state on Facebook a few days ago.   

“There are many vibratory dimensions to this world, as well as the worlds of spirit, and each dimension is home to a specific level of love that we each individually carry in our souls. Those with a lower frequency of love cannot live in the higher dimensions as it would “fry their circuits” so to speak.

“I have witnessed this on many occasions when those whose soul condition is one of service-to-self rather than service-to-others are in the presence of a higher love; they tend to go a bit crazy, which can manifest in childish rebelliousness or in extreme cases, anger and violence. What is happening is that the fire of love is confronting the emotional damage of their souls and in a sense they are writhing in pain to the extent that they resist. Of course, this Love can also free their souls and lift them up if they so choose.

“This is what I see taking place in the world today. There truly is a spiritual battle happening between the forces of light and the forces of darkness that fear being brought into the light. In fact, they are kicking and screaming, plotting and planning to maintain their power even as they are in the process of being left behind, depending on their choices.

“I’m reminded of the words of Moses to the Israelites who were caught between Pharaoh and the Red Sea: “Stand still and see the salvation of the Lord.” Not that we simply sit back and relax. No, there may be many things to be done. But we can rest in the knowing that the victory is at hand. Why? Because Love conquers all and is absolutely unstoppable. In my own awareness of what’s happening on the planet, it’s picking up speed and those that fight it will not succeed. The Red Sea will part once more.”

And the miracle of salvation occurs by being at the right place at the right time when the sea of consciousness parts to reveal the Way across the threshold to a higher ground of being, a new and freeing perspective. In a word, a higher level of consciousness—a “new heaven.”

“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 or crying, neither shall there be any more pain: for the former things are passed away.” (Rev. 21:1-4)

The “holy city” and “new Jerusalem” symbolize the purified and sanctified state of human consciousness, absorbed into and reunited with Divine Consciousness in the final phase of the Restoration, at which point there will be “no more sea” of separate and isolated human consciousness, but only the dry land of a New Earth emerging from the Unified Field of Consciousness awaiting our care and stewardship. 

I love how Lawrence articulates the essences-of-the-Moment in the transformation process of the Body of Man as we enter a particularly intense culminating phase in the cycles of the Restoration of Man to God.

In those five words is defined the underlying meaning and purpose of human life on Earth down through the ages since the Fall of Man from his position in Eden as the “conveyor of spirit to earth” and administrator of creation, as my poet friend Don Hynes wrote in a recent comment on my last post: 

“I would only add that man restored is to God, becoming the conveyor of Spirit to the earth. Stewardship describes behavior but this time of revelation is calling for the return of the real meal deal!  The fall could be described as spiritual man falling into the creation. Divine man was to administer the creation, not be subject to it. Without the return to that position good works in the earth won’t matter, despite the good intentions.  I’m trying to elevate the position of Spiritual man without denigrating earth stewardship or the good works Richard (Heinberg) outlines.”

A Lesson in Mastery

Lawrence’s words bring up a memorable incident from my earlier years of attending professional workshops and seminars. I recall an encounter I had with my spiritual mentor at a time when he was apparently in the process of coming forth, just weeks before he made his transition from this earthly plane. I had just arrived to attend one of his symposiums when I met up with him and extended my hand to greet him.  He had already seen me approaching and, as he always did, was looking through my eyes into my heart, which was full of love for him and eagerness to hear him speak again.  As I approached and entered his immediate atmosphere, I was stopped by what seemed to be an invisible wall.  His dense, refined spiritual substance had completely enveloped his body, forming a protective shield around him.  I think he saw what was happening and lowered his frequency so that he could receive me just as I was.

For me it was a lesson in true mastery: meeting people at the level where the are in their journey, uncon-ditionally and without judgement, and not requiring them to meet me where I am.  It was also an exemplary reminder not to shine my light into the eyes of others but rather to shine it on the path to light the Way of transformation. He was a true master and beloved friend, the kind of teacher that appears when the student is ready. And apparently I was ready for enlightenment.

This has been a fruitful meditation for me, as I trust it has been for you. Until my next post in this series, in which I will share another excerpt from Richard Heinberg’s MEMORIES AND VISIONS OF PARADISE,

Be love. Be loved.

The Thymus Gland and . . . The Spirit of Purification

I am the Spirit of Purification

   I protect the life and this temple from harm

I bring heaven and earth together as one

I give assurance to my world that all is well

With this post I begin a new series of consideration on our sacred energy anatomy. In this series I will share excerpts from the chapter in my book, SACRED ANATOMY, that focuses on the Thymus Gland and the cleansing and refining work of the Spirit of Purification. In this first post of the series, I present a brief description of the thymus gland’s role in the body temple, its function as an endocrine gland and its primary role managing and coordinating what I will call the body’s immune alliance.

There is much work to be done in the body preparing substance for ascension through the ceremonial processes of digestion, assimilation, absorption, purification, and elimination. This work of refinement begins in the mouth where gifts from the vegetable, mineral and animal kingdoms are received into the body, bearing vital nutrients and building blocks for the temple.

As we chew our food, salivary glands secrete enzymes to activate digestive chemistry in the stomach. A mixture of water, mucus, antibacterial substances, and digestive enzymes, saliva lubricates the mouth and the alimentary canal for the passage of food down through the esophagus and into the stomach. Here in the oral cavity amylase breaks down the starch in our food into simple sugars like glucose and maltose, obviating the importance of thorough mastication. In the stomach, pepsin is activated by hydrochloric acid (HCl) released from parietal cells in the stomach lining to break down meat and other protein substances.  Carried in along with these raw materials are numerous toxins that will have to be bound, rendered harmless and then eliminated from the body. This protective activity begins in the mouth and is operative throughout the journey of the food substances through the body’s digestive and elimination systems. 

Vibrationally this work actually begins in the kitchen where the food is prepared, hopefully by happy hands and hearts, and even before that in the garden and produce market.  Food has a way of absorbing the vibrations of those who handle it and passing them on to those who consume it. Coarse vibrations are disruptive to the flow of subtle energy in the body and can be refined by a blessing before meals. Refinement of the atoms themselves that comprise the food, bringing with them their memories of where they’ve been, is carried out at higher levels yet, as we have already seen in our meditation on the Pineal Body and will explore in greater depth in the chapter on the Gonads.  

The Young Thymus      Gland inside the     chest cavity

The Thymus gland—a large, flat grayish structure located just behind the sternum (breastbone) and in front of the heart, like a shield protecting this vital organ—plays a key role in this process of the distribution of nutrients and the elimination of toxins.  Here is the heart of what is referred to as the “immune system,” situated at about the level of the paps on a man’s chest. 

In the vibratory context and order of the frequencies in the light spectrum, it would radiate a wavelength of yellow-gold and a frequency correlating with  the musical pitch C natural, the third harmonic in the F Major triad: F,A,C, [the significance of which I explore in my book Attunement With Sacred Sound.]

John the Beloved Disciple, in his Book of Revelation in the Bible, described the One in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks as being “…girt about the paps with a golden girdle.” This area would include the entire upper thorax contained within the rib cage—the lungs, the heart, the thymus and spleen, and the solar plexus.  This entire section of the anatomy is taken up with activities relating to protection, circulation, purification, and ascension.  The golden glow of love fills this area with substance so that these activities are carried out as gently and thoroughly as possible.

   The Thymus accomplishes its tasks largely by way of the lymphatic system. The function of the lymphatic system is to pick up the excess fluid and metabolic waste between the cells and tissues, destroy what does not belong in the body and put it all back into circulation through the subclavian artery (just below the left clavicle, from whence it derives its name).  Much like a cleanup crew on a construction site, lymph brings building blocks of nutrients to the cells and distributes lymphocytes (white blood cells) throughout the body to destroy pathogens as it sweeps up and carries away the metabolic waste. There are some 75 million on these lymphocytes at work among the approximately 75 trillion cells in the body temple.   Having no pump to move it, as does the bloodstream, lymphatic fluid depends on the movement of muscles for its circulation.  Exercise, especially brisk walking and rebounding, as well as massage, helps to move this fluid around throughout the body.                          

An Immune Alliance

   The Thymus is the control center for the electromagnetic energy of the body.  It is with this energy that the body maintains its integrity and protective hedge. Although we speak of an “immune system,” the reality is that the body does not have an immune system in as much as it is an immune system in its functional totality, considering the vast distribution of lymphocytes throughout the body temple.  Systems such as the skeletal, respiratory, reproductive, endocrine, central nervous system, and others are complete functioning systems with a clear set of organs and responses.  Our immune system may best be described as an immune alliance between various systems and organs which, when signaled and coordinated by the brain, give an immune response to the presence of any and all non-self elements and associated dis-ease factors that are not a natural part of the internal landscape of the body.

   This immune alliance is composed of the thymus gland, which develops the immature lymphocytes; the spleen which produces antibodies and which includes the lymphatic and blood circulatory systems; the long bones of the skeletal system which house bone-marrow that gives birth to leukocytes (white blood cells). Then there are the organs of the digestive system: the stomach and pancreas, which make Hydrochloric acid and enzymes that destroy ingested parasites and carcinogens, the intestinal flora which destroy pathogenic microbes and manufacture B12, and the liver which detoxifies the blood and produces enzymes that break down dead tissue cells and repair those that are damaged.  So when I speak of the “immune system,” it is to this alliance that I am referring and not to some specific system in the body. 

    We also commonly and erroneously speak of “fortifying” and “stimulating” the immune system.  The reality is that we cannot enhance our immunity without enhancing the overall health of the whole person in complete immunity to the various and sundry elements of disease.  With the above in mind, it becomes clear that a multifaceted approach must be made to nourish and strengthen the whole man, which includes the diverse aspects of the body’s major immune players along with the mental, emotional and spiritual aspects of the whole person. Today we understand that building our immunity is as much a spiritual function as it is a physical one. The health of the immune system is actually the health of the whole person. Detoxification is always the more immediate priority in this process, after which fortification and maintenance come into play as more long-term functions in maintaining immunity.

   It has been said by many who work in this field of health care that the simple and easy act of throwing your shoulders back and putting a smile on your face does much to empower your immune system, along with any nutritional supplement you might also be taking. This speaks to the invisible aspect of our immunity: our personal atmosphere. The atmosphere around a person plays at least an equal role, if not greater, in the protection of the body temple as do the various players of the immune alliance inside the body.  It attracts both trouble or happiness depending on the quality of its vibrancy, and that depends largely on what is going on in a person’s mind and heart in the way of thought patterns and harbored feelings.  So we see that our so-called “immune system” is comprised of a whole lot more than meets our eyes and each part of that whole has its unique role to play, physically, mentally, emotionally, as well as spiritually. 

   The physical and chemical role of the Thymus in this immune alliance is the production of antibodies.  More specifically, it seeds the lymphatic tissue, which then produces the antibodies.  When you are exposed to bacteria, your thymus gland should immediately seed the lymphatic tissue to start the production of antibodies.  It takes seven days to completely produce enough antibodies to destroy the bacteria. This is why organ transplant patients only live seven days unless something is done to prevent the formation of antibodies.  The foreign protein in the donor’s organ does not fit the chromosome pattern of the recipient’s body.  When a foreign protein enters your system, it is treated just like harmful bacteria.  The thymus gland seeds the lymphatic tissue to produce antibodies, which then destroy the protein.  This defines pretty much the primary function of the Thymus gland as a key player in the immune system of the body.

The Thymus is probably the most powerful and active of all the seven endocrine centers when it is functioning in a balanced manner, and balance is the key here to a healthy immunity. . . .

This will be the topic of consideration in my next post, Protecting the Body Temple, the primary role of the thymus gland and the Spirit of Purification.  Until then,

Be love. Be loved.

Role of the Thyroid in Shifting Frequency

“If flesh came into being because of spirit, it is wonderful.  If spirit came into being because of the body, it is exceedingly wonderful.  I am amazed that this great wealth has appeared in this poverty.”                                                                                           —Jesus, from The Gospel of Thomas

Continuing in this series on The Spiritual Significance of the Thyroid Gland, this excerpt from SACRED ANATOMY is the final post of this series. These meditations on our sacred energy anatomy may appear couched in archaic thought-forms and words. They are, after all, words and currents of the heart. I would ask you to keep this in mind as you read and process them in your heart, where true understanding is known and available. 

Just as a recap, there are seven endocrine glands, seven colors in the rainbow spectrum of light, and seven “lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven spirits of God,” as described by John in The Book of Revelation in the Bible. Each endocrine gland provides an energetic center for the activity of Spirit in the body temple, and through the body temple in the world we each create and steward.  The fifth differentiated spirit of God, the Spirit of Life, works in and through the sacred center of the Thyroid Gland. I will excerpt the entire passage from Revelation here for context and perspective, as well as inspiration. John describes his experience being “in the spirit on the Lord’s day.”

“And being turned, I saw seven golden candlesticks; and in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot, and girt about the paps with a golden girdle. His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire;  And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters.       

“And he had in his right hand seven stars; and out of his mouth went a sharp two-edge sword; and His countenance was as the sun shineth in his strength.” (Rev. 1: 12-16)

Then later on John relates how a door was opened in heaven and he saw this vision:

“And immediately I was in the spirit: and, behold, a throne was set in heaven, and one sat on the throne.   And he that sat was to look upon like jasper and a sardine stone: and there was a rainbow round about the throne, in sight like unto an emerald. And round about the throne were four and twenty seats: and upon the seats I saw four and twenty elders sitting, clothed in white raiment; and they had on their heads crowns of gold.  And out of the throne proceeded lightnings and thunderings and voices: and there were seven lamps of fire burning before the throne, which are the seven Spirits of God.

“And before the throne there was a sea of glass like unto crystal: and in the midst of the throne, and round about the throne, were four beasts full of eyes before and behind.”    (Rev 4:2-6)

Changing Vibratory Frequency 

As considered earlier, it is the Spirit of Life focused at this level of the Thyroid that creates the hormonal crystals which convey to the body cells their vibratory frequencies.  Any change in their rate of oscillation, then, would be the domain of the Spirit of Life. These first three centers of sacred energy obviously play key roles in the transformation and transmutation process, although all seven endocrine centers are involved.  

As there is attunement with the Spirit of Love in one’s heart — one has come to the point in one’s spiritual growth where one knows utter love for and abandon to the will of the One within, nothing wavering or withheld — the fire of the transmuting Love descends from out of heaven within and consumes the body temple in an ascending flame. The body is lifted up to a higher frequency of union with the Beloved, even the very Lord that I am and that each one of us is as incarnate God beings.  The angel thus fully incarnates and takes charge of his or her renewed body temple, now encapsulated in a seamless garment of radiance, down to the foot.  Through this garment nothing can enter that would do harm to or defile the temple. 

    Occasionally, after completing an attunement session with someone, I have placed my hands on either side of the recipient’s throat Chakra to feel the flow of life pouring out from this powerful gateway. The current is so strong that it often pushes my hands upward and outward.  I can actually feel the shape of what I would call “wings” opening out to encompass the body temple, and I remember words from the Book of Malachi (4:2):  “But unto you that fear my name shall the Sun of righteousness arise with healing in his wings . . . .”    

In such moments as these I am ever so aware of the presence of the angel in the midst, even at the door, ready to emerge any moment from behind our wall and arise with healing in His wings.  These words, then, come immediately into my heart: “The Lord is in His holy temple; let all the earth keep silence before him.”  And earlier on in the same chapter are found these words: “For the earth shall be filled with the knowledge of the glory of the LORD as the waters cover the sea.”(Habakkuk 2:14,20)

Radiance is the nature of Life.  Uranda offers a meditation on each of the seven spirits in a little booklet entitled Seven Steps to the Temple of Light.  Of Life he writes:

Radiance is the wellspring of Life, and it relates to the Temple of Light.  Radiance is the Shining of the Wonderful One, and Radiance always is; yet no man can know that Radiance until he has let the Wonderful One have His Way.

Radiance is the ever-expanding Essence of the Wonderful One made manifest in the body of man.  Radiance is the Presence made visible in the world of physical things, that I AM THAT I AM may be known of men.

Radiance is the Essence and Spirit of Selfless Service.  Such Service serves not for a reward, nor does it seek results, for it knows that fruition comes as a natural result of Radiation.  The Law is, and cannot be otherwise.  That which is, is without seeking, trying or striving, for it is.  That which abides in that which is, is that in which it abides so long as it abides therein.  To abide in constant Realization of the Presence, fully assured that the Presence of the Wonderful One is that which is, is to be the Radiance of the Presence. As the One is ever serving through the Radiance, giving the Life that brings full fruition, the Blessed One who has Realized the Presence of the Wonderful One is fused into the Radiance and thereby becomes a “servant of the Lord,” even a Channel for the Radiance of the Wonderful One within. . . .

 . . . Radiance shines forth from the Blessed One who lets the Wonderful One act through him in all that is done, for then it is that the outer self acts not of itself, but is an extension of the Perfect and Eternal Activity of the Wonderful One.   Responding thus to the Radiance, the Blessed One is blended into the Radiance, and is thereby uplifted into the final union with the Wonderful One — and this is Life Eternal.  Let Love Radiate.

All of this is accomplished by the Spirit of Love working in and through the hormonal chemistry produced in these endocrine glands, with primary roles played by the Pineal, Pituitary and Thyroid glands, with the added assistance of the Hypothalamus, as we have already considered, which serves as an interface at the floor of the brain for coordination between the endocrine glands and the central nervous system, providing us with vibrational information crucial to our creativity and balanced function on the physical plane of this material world. 

These special three endocrine glands, in coordination with the sense organs, the brain and central nervous system, comprise the core aspects of our sacred anatomy.   We shall now leave the upper part of the temple and proceed into the body of the temple to explore together the remaining four endocrine glands and their function in what I will call “service in the temple.”  The service these lower four seals provide facilitates the process by which substance may ascend into the temple and be prepared for transmutation. 

With the next post, I will begin a series of meditations on the Spiritual Significance of the Thymus Gland and the Spirit of Purification. I invite you to share any thoughts or inspirations that may have come to you during these meditations.  Until my next post, 

Be love. Be loved.

What’s UP for Our Species?

“Skepticism is the chastity of the intellect, Santayana declared, and the metaphor is apt. The mind that seeks the deepest intellectual fulfillment does not give itself up to every passing idea.” —(Richard Tarnas, COSMOS AND PSYCHE)

My last post engendered considerable response from readers who shared some very thoughtful views in a lengthy and rich conversation on a group Face Book page around the topic of the current climate crisis.  The last word on the so-called “climate crisis,” of course, has not been written, and may never be. I did receive a lead to my next book to read, COSMOS AND PSYCHE, which I am thoroughly enjoying. Thanks Don!

One of my followers, Marco, from Alojera, Canarias, Spain, shared these three perceptions:

1.That our environment is radically changing and requiring human behavior to adapt in ways that will challenge past behavior.

Yes, and “adapt” is the operative word for the purpose of the current post — as in evolve.

2. That aforementioned human behavior (particularly since the industrial revolution) has increasingly reflected a sense of identity separate and superior from the planet and its natural cycles; and that such separate, superior identity has been fertile ground for the emergence of aberrant, predatory, and ultimately self-defeating identity, convinced not of humankind belonging within a mutually interdependent ecosystem, but in an intrinsically fearful, competitive, and winner-takes-all matrix. 

On the one hand, the industrial complex may be playing a remedial role in getting the oil off our water planet, two substances that don’t mix well together. The late geology professor John Waskom, offered a rationale for the burning of oil, a foreign substance deposited on Earth by Venus when she was a comet some 3570 years ago — according to Dr. Immanuel Vlikovsky, author of Worlds In Collision, who was extremely knowledgeable in the texts of ancient peoples. Dr. Waskom’s scenario was that beings with technological expertise were sent here by the Creators specifically to pump the oil out of the ground and dispose of it. On the other hand, I don’t think the Creators had it in mind to turn the oil into plastic and other polluting and cancer causing chemicals. This has been the doings of “aberrant, predatory, and ultimately self-defeating” humans.

3. That as a result of the above, man is fearful of change, deeply convinced of his reliance on an unsustainable life-style. And unless something changes radically in man’s psychological assumptions, the species will not survive this phase of environmental change.

Radical change is the only path to survival. The question is: Who is it that hopes to survive this “unsustainable life-style?” More to the point: “Who can survive it?” Perhaps those who have thoroughly established a more sustainable life-style in an isolated and insulated community can.

A more transcendent question is: Why limit our thinking to mere survival of our species?  We can radically change our psychological assumptions. Why not think in terms of transcending the human condition altogether and creating a totally new and “greener” world on what seems to be emerging as a New Earth. God knows Gaia is doing her part to clear the way for a restoration to occur.

Behold, I create a new heaven and a new earth, for the old heaven and old earth are passed away; and there is no more sea.

Because the new heaven and new earth are one and the separate “sea” of fallen human consciousness that had been maintaining the old earth is no more.  Human consciousness is transformed and transmuted into Divine Consciousness.  This is how the New Earth appears: “Not by might nor by power, but by my Spirit saith the Lord of Hosts.” 

Marco added this quotation from Homer’s The Odyssey, which speaks to the pathetic attitude of irresponsible humans. 

 Men are so quick to blame the gods: they say that we devise their misery. But they
themselves — in their depravity — design grief greater than the griefs that fate assigns.

Question: Is there really a “climate crisis?  This reader’s comment suggests otherwise:

I agree much more can be done to care for the planet, but panic is not good, and it’s scaring children. Many say it’s urgent, but 500! scientists and engineers just told the UN it’s not an emergency, that climate policy is relying on inadequate models, so maybe some balance is required. Indeed, the Russian climate model says things are not as extreme . . . .  Science is wonderful and very useful, but I believe science doesn’t know everything and hasn’t factored in all the variables . . . . [Go to this link for the whole story.]
https://www.washingtontimes.com/…/scientists-tell-un…/ 

My poet friend sent me these words of wisdom:  When there’s a meme [an idea or behavior circulated on social media] being pushed at a mega scale it behooves one to ask why and for what purpose.”

So I ask why and for what purpose. As I said in my previous post, I am feeling my way through all the reactive journalism and commentaries around the subject of climate change. 

So, what is up for the Human Species?

All of this uproar over climate change poses a few questions in my own mind:  

1. Are we facing the inevitable demise of our species, perhaps in the form of some sort of transmutation of our flesh bodies to a higher form of, say, the frequency of light?

2. This question gives rise to another: Is the earth’s warming climate preparing the way by creating a vibrational caldron as a crucible in which this transmutation might occur “in the twinkling of an eye” and without too much suffering on the part of humans?

3. In other words, are we being asked by the Great Spirit Creator to let go of our attachment to these earthen forms, at least our identity with them, in order to cross over the alchemical threshold where physical materialization meets the spiritualizing realm, the abode of angels . . . if only in consciousness at first?

Transmutation of form follows transformation of consciousness, as consciousness is the matrix out of which form appears. In other words, there is a creative process to be stewarded here whereby all things are made new.  Re-creation in consciousness is accomplished by Spirit as it finds expression through us in our living.  My spiritual mentor articulated this principle forty years ago:

When the spiritual action is present the design in form appears. This is the principle which we have doubtless known for a long time but by which the restoration is made possible. Behold, I make all things new. As there is the means on earth by which the spiritual action may appear, then the substance in the realm of form leaps to reveal it. All this can occur very quickly when there is spiritual action and to the extent that there are people on the face of the earth who are willing to let it happen, who are no longer insisting that material substance should be held in the structured forms set up by fallen human nature.  (Martin Cecil)

Lest We Forget Our Past

What’s buried deep in the human psyche that’s pushing up for conscious acknowledgment and remembrance? Are we awakening from our mass amnesia and remembering our traumatic past so that we do not repeat it?

In an effort to answer these questions, I would like to revisit a post from last year and excerpt the closing paragraphs. The post itself is a review of Graham Hancock’s classic Fingerprints Of The Gods.” Below is a link to the post itself.

EITHER WE EVOLVE OR WE PERISH

When human beings from around the globe, and from many different cultures, share a powerful and overwhelming intuition that a cataclysm is approaching, we are within our rights to ignore them. And when the voices of our distant ancestors, descending to us through myths and sacred architecture, speak to us of the physical obliteration of a great civilization in remote antiquity (and tell us that our own civilization is in jeopardy), we are entitled, if we wish, to stop our ears…

So it was, the Bible says, in the antediluvian world: “For in those days, before the Flood, people were eating, drinking, taking wives, taking husbands, right up to the moment that Noah went into the Ark, and they suspected nothing till the flood came and swept all away.”

In the same manner it has been prophesied that the next global destruction will fall upon us suddenly “at an hour we do not suspect, like lightning striking in the east and flashing far into the west … The sun will be darkened, the moon will lose its brightness, the stars will fall from the sky and the powers of heaven will be shaken ….”

What has happened before can happen again. What has been done before can be done again.

The thread that runs through the pages of Graham’s book weaves a fabric upon which is painted a prophetic picture for our generation specifically that warns of impending disaster for our world and its population based simply on a cosmic clock ticking away the centuries and millennia over the past 12,500 years since a highly advanced civilization was all but wiped off the face of the earth by a cataclysm. That civilization was known as Atlantis and is now believed to be buried beneath a two-mile thick cap of ice. Today that island continent is called Antarctica. Buried with it are the historical records of what this civilization did that brought about its destruction in literally the blinking of an eye — like a thief in the night.  It is likely we will never know the secret buried beneath those two miles of ice. An ancient lost civilization frozen in time and preserved till the day the ice melts and reveals its secrets. . . .

The survivors of the Deluge . . . left messages carved in stone which point to our day — when the sun rises on the Winter Solstice in the House of the constellation of Sagittarius at the South Gate of the Milky Way Galaxy between 1960 and 2040 AD — and when the pendulum of the cosmic clock strikes the hour when the hammer will likely fall again on the civilizations of man.  It is also the dawning of the Age of Aquarius which guards the North Gate of the Milky Way Galaxy.  As I wrote about in a previous post, this is also designated in Mayan cosmology as “the place of creation.”

We ignore the myths of our ancient ancestors to our peril.  The dawn of a New Day lightens the horizon. It’s time to wake up and face the harvest of our sowing days as it spreads ugly before us.  We’ve run into a concrete wall and there’s no way to go forward — only up and over it.  It’s the way Gaia is going — up, up and away!

I believe that collectively — and restoration is a collective experience of transformation, as we are all in the same boat — we have the spiritual substance necessary for Spirit to work through in averting a cataclysmic demise of our species, and to turn the tide of self-destruction by climate collapse or nuclear war.  I see this substance of love being generated by people the world over.  My wife and I participated recently in a diverse group dialogue on the issue of racial justice. The atmosphere in the room was one of accord that we are one race, the human race.  I came away with an uplifted sense that all is well. Unconquerable Life is prevailing, our differences adding color to its expression through us. We are beginning to truly love one another.  Let’s let this atmosphere increase and clarify to give Spirit a means for making all things new through Man restored. 

I leave you with this timely video message: “If we do not wish to die, then we must evolve.” Barbara Mor reads from The Great Cosmic Mother — Rediscovering the Religion of the Earth: https://youtu.be/oPtU2Rxbsjc

Until my next post,

Be love. Be loved

One Who Dwells in the Midst

      I love reading biblical stories and imagining what life might have been like in ancient times. One can also gain an insight into the evolution of human consciousness — or devolution, as in the more primal areas of human behavior dictated by the reptilian brain. Not much evolution there when you consider how we place more value in moon rocks than in the lives of migrants seeking asylum from murderous regimes in war-torn homelands. I am appalled at what is happening to families, especially to women and children, at our southern borders here in America.

This is not who we are. “Love it or leave it!” are not acceptable options here in America, land of the free and the brave. As David Brooks pointed out today on PBS’s Brooks and Shields interview with Judy Woodruff , Americans want and love a multicultural democracy. Racism is not wanted nor welcome here. Who in their right mind can love the corruption festering in high places of government and Corporate America? Or the lack of true governance and wise stewardship of our planet and her resources?  And, besides, real leaders do not just up and leave, or go back to where they came from, simply because they do not accept and support what’s going on in high places, or in a world to which they seek to offer true leadership. True Americans stay in there and push forward to bring the truth of loving and compassionate governance to the people they seek to lead toward a more truthful way of living together as “one Nation under God, with liberty and justice for all.” That’s what the feminine leadership in the Burnsville, Minnesota community is doing. Check out the story aired on the Today Show this morning. My feminine and masculine sides both said YES! This can happen everywhere!

I fear our great nation is facing complete collapse unless we change the way we treat one another. . .and our Earth mother. Will this civilization go the way of ancient kingdoms, as in the days of the prophets of old?

In my last post, I related the story of Daniel the Prophet and King Nebuchadnezzar’s troubling dream of a great image made of gold, silver, brass and iron. His feet were made of iron mixed with clay. The troubling part of the dream, besides the king’s inability to remember it, was when a small stone struck the image on its feet, causing them to crumble, bringing the entire image down into oblivion.

The image in the dream was interpreted by Daniel — who also told the king his dream — as representing kingdoms of his era that would fall into oblivion. The small stone represented the Heavenly Kingdom of Daniel’s God which grew into a great nation that filled the entire world. Here’s the rest of the story.

NEBUCHADNEZZAR’S KINGDOM RESTORED

But before King Nebuchadnezzar’s reign came to an end, his entire kingdom was taken away from him, an event that was foretold in a dream once again, this one being of a gigantic tree that covered the entire earth which “holy men from above” had come down and cut off all its branches, leaving only a stump with a brass band around it to keep it from perishing entirely.  Daniel told the king that he was that tree, whose power had grown so that he ruled the entire world of that day.

Soon after his dream Nebuchadnezzar found himself suddenly banned from his kingdom to live in the wilderness and eat grass like the other animals.  Instead of cursing his lot, however, he lifted his heart and mouth up to heaven and praised the God of Daniel, acknowledging Him as the giver of all things, including his kingdom for which he had once proudly taken full credit for its very existence.  His wealth and his kingdom were then restored to him, along with his lords and counselors.  In his own words: “and I was established in my kingdom, and excellent majesty was added unto me.”  He then praised, extolled and honored the King of heaven.

THE END OF AN ANCIENT ERA

It was his son, Belshazzar, king of the Chaldeans, who resorted to worshiping their gods of gold, silver, brass, iron, wood and stone, bringing that empire down into final ruin.  While celebrating and drinking out of the vessels taken from out of the temple of God in Jerusalem, he saw a hand writing upon the wall these words:

MENE, MENE, TEKEL, UPHARSIN,” which Daniel interpreted, with some consternation himself, to mean: “God hath numbered thy kingdom, and finished it…. Thou art weighed in the balance, and art found wanting…. Thy kingdom is divided and given to the Medes and Persians”  (Daniel 5:24-28).  

The king immediately tried to appease Daniel’s God by commanding that Daniel be clothed with scarlet and given the gold chain he had promised to anyone who could interpret the writing on the wall, along with making him the third ruler of the kingdom.  But that night Belshazzar was slain and Darius the Median took over the kingdom.

THE  DAWNING  OF A NEW ERA

Daniel had several visions after this, all foretelling what was to come to pass, not unlike John of Revelation. They come as well toward the end of a cycle of repeated failure.  In fact, they were strikingly similar and read very much like the visions John saw when he turned to see the voice that spoke with him. Daniel also had a vision of a glorified man after he himself had been on a twenty-four-day fast mourning the visions he had been having pointing to the destruction of Jerusalem,  a city which, as Daniel reminded the Lord, bore his name, “Salem.” It was just after this period of mourning and fasting, sitting by the river Hiddekel, that Daniel saw…

 “A certain man clothed in linen, whose loins were girded with fine gold of Uphaz: His body also was like the beryl, and his face as the appearance of lightning, and his eyes as lamps of fire, and his arms and his feet like in colour to polished brass, and the voice of his words like the voice of a multitude.”  (Daniel 10:5-6)  

It was then that Daniel, foreseeing the necessity of a new cycle for the redemption of mankind and the restoration of the world after so many prior failures, foretold the coming of the Messiah, the incarnation of the Lord of Love, who would himself initiate the cycle.

Invariably, toward the end of a world cycle, there is the One who is present at the very core of the fire which fuels the creative process underway.  This is the Lord of the Sacred Seven who is responsible for the Creative Processes at work in and through this world over which he is Sovereign.  He made himself known through Abraham, through Jacob, through Moses and the prophets such as Daniel, and finally through John the Beloved on the isle of Patmos, after the cycle He had initiated came to a certain point of completion for Him personally, although it failed to complete itself in the collective experience of those who were with Him at the time. 

The cycle would have to be re-initiated at a level where human consciousness would be in a future time when cosmic factors would come into alignment again and make it possible.  His presence and personal victory impacted human consciousness sufficiently to transform it and lift it to a level where the cycle could be initiated again. That initiation has taken place in our day, as the peoples of the world are awakening to the presence of the Divine within themselves.

This same Lord of the Seven Planes of Being for this Whole Holy World is making His presence felt once again at the end of this cycle of 2000 years, which marks the beginning of a cycle of renewal and restoration for the entire planet and solar entity, including Mankind and the natural world on the planet.  For those who are moving on the vibration of Love, the Presence of the One who dwells in the midst is unmistakably felt. His radiance shines forth into the world by reason of the presence of this tiny gland, this “white stone” of the renewed Pineal.  Uranda expressed this dynamic in his usual authoritative voice:

“The grain of sand, so called, that is contained in the Pineal Gland acts on the same principle as that utilized in the crystal set radio. This ‘grain of sand’ is, in reality, a crystallized particle of the highest vibration of physical substance, and it is through this that the highest vibration possible in the physical body is released into Radiant expression, from the Father within. This crystallized substance is not subject to external activities or influences of the physical body, but it is like the germ in the seed which is the focal point through which life forces are released into active expression. The Radiance is shining through this seventh seal at all times, and to the degree that we are, in our consciousness, attuned thereto, the expression of the Father [love] is released into our lives, moment by moment.” – Uranda

I will continue sharing excerpts from Sacred Anatomy in my next two posts, bringing this series to completion.  We will consider how the little stone in the king’s dream casts its prophetic shadow on the transformation of human consciousness and behavior unfolding in our time. Until then….

Be Love.  Be loved.
