Steps of Ascent 4: How much can we bear?

Blessed is one who existed before coming into being…. You are pleased when you see your own likeness.  When you see your images that came into being before you did, immortal and invisible images, how much can you bear?  — Jesus, The Gospel of Thomas¹

♦◊♦


READING THROUGH the first two chapters of the Book of Genesis in the Bible, one cannot help but notice that there are two different incidences that speak of the creation of man.  The first one is in the 26th verse of the first chapter of Genesis:

“And God said, Let us make man in our image, after out likeness: and let them have dominion over the fish of the sea, and over the fowl of the air, and over the cattle, and over all the earth, and over every creeping thing that creepeth upon the earth.”  

     This may be taken as the creation of Spiritual Man, made in the image and likeness of the Creator.  The second incident, as recorded in the second chapter of Genesis, relates to the creation of Adam, physical man, by the LORD God:

“…and there was not a man to till the ground….  And the LORD God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul. And the LORD God planted a garden eastward in Eden; and there he put the man whom he had formed . . .to dress it and to keep it.”

THE “LORD God”

     Who is this “LORD God” that appears on the scene?  In her legacy work, THE BOOK OF GRACE, biblical scholar and spiritual author Grace Van Duzen goes to some length to elucidate:

A new name is introduced here: the LORD God. The capitalization in such case conveys plurality,  a focus of beings, whereas the use (later) of Lord indicates divine presence in a single being.

Rev. Scofield, in his Authorized King James Reference Bible, says:

The primary meaning of the name LORD (Jehovah) is the self-existent One.” Literally (as in Ex. 3.14), “He that is who He is, therefore the eternal I AM.” But Havah, from which Jehovah, or Yahwe, is formed, signifies also “to become,” that is, to become known, thus pointing to a continuous and increasing self-revelation. Combining these meanings of Havah, we arrive at the meaning of the name Jehovah. He is “the self­ existent One who reveals Himself . . . .”

It is significant that the first appearance of the name Jehovah in Scripture follows the creation of man. It was God (Elohim) who said, “Let us make man in our image”. . . but when man, as in the second chapter of Genesis, is to fill the scene and become dominant over creation, it is the LORD God (Jehovah Elohim) who acts. This clearly indicates a special relation of Deity, in His Jehovah character, to man, and all Scripture empha­sizes this. 

The name Lord, or Jehovah, is introduced immediately after the completion of the six-day cycle of Creation which was crowned with the presence of Man, the means whereby God could “live and move and have his being” on this planet in conscious expression. That is the purpose of man, to reveal God through the indwelling presence in himself — not as a stereotyped, preordained blueprint but to allow, moment by moment in living, a New Heaven and a New Earth to take form. 

Herein is the secret of God’s “rest” [on the seventh day], the state of being which became possible as human beings remained in harmony with the Creator, the Law which operates the universe.  Man was not created an automaton, without free will; that would not be an image and likeness of the Creator. On the contrary, all the wonder and diversity of the cosmos was available to be given form on Earth according to the capacities of this new creation, and on the Seventh Day that provision was in place. It was, moreover, a cycle when a “proving” was necessary to complete the creation.

I think we’re still in the proving stage, and not faring too well in it.

WE REALLY DON’T HAVE A CLUE

     Now, I find all this most intriguing, as others have as well.  Quite frankly, no one really knows what occurred back then.  Some have even speculated that superior beings from outer space came to earth and seeded the human race in various and different locations as genetic experiments, each genetically different with unique physical characteristics, cultures and languages, perhaps to see if they would find a way to meld together as one global human race — a scenario to which I could easily ascribe watching travelogue programs that take you all over the globe to visit the colorful array of nationalities and life styles that exist in near isolation from one another except for media technology and air travel. 

(Watching the spectacular and inspiring 2020 Winter Olympics high-tech opening ceremony in Tokyo, and hearing John Lennon’s “Imagine” sung so passionately by everyone, including John Legend and a couple of other popular vocalists, the world is “as one” for these young athletes from different nations.  I was deeply touched. This upcoming generation just may pull it off — peace and harmony, that is.)  

REMEMBERING OUR PAST LEST WE REPEAT IT 

      There has been for some time a question concerning the two different stories in Genesis relating to the creation of Man which suggests rogue behavior on the part of one or more of the creator beings comprising the Elohim conclave.  I’ve given this considerable thought and meditation, and I resonate more with Grace Van Duzen’s view of the creation story than with the rogue scenario.  Whether critical or speculative inquiry, the fact is that if there’s been any rogue behavior on this planet, it’s been on the part of man himself — and it is precisely this rogue behavior by us that needs to cease before Eden can be restored, along with our partnership with God as co-creators of living forms on Earth . . . according to Divine Design and not human designs.

      Let us not fool ourselves by thinking our past errant ways are gone and forgotten, because this rogue behavior is still going on everywhere on the face of the earth, notably in laboratories where medical scientists tamper and experiment with the genetic code of the double helix DNA and its partner RNA which contain and deliver respectively Life’s instructions for creating and assembling the building blocks of physical matter.

WE’VE OPENED PANDORA’S BOX . . . INTENTIONALLY—FATHER FORGIVE US FOR WE KNOW NOT WHAT WE DO  

      It all sounds so ingenious and commendable . . . until an experiment gets out of hand and a man-made virus, genetically coded to be more virulent and aggressive by a method called “Gain of Function” (GOF) — for the purpose of developing an appropriate vaccine in the event of a pandemic — is reportedly released accidentally in order to create a global pandemic.  As I understand it, this dangerous research was shut down here in America only to be transferred to a lab in Wuhan by leading medical scientists in the USA, as well as funded.  (Here’s the stunning LATEST DISCLOSURE on the origin of the virus.  Scroll down to read the Story at a Glance, although the video is well worth watching.)

      How much disclosure such as this can we bear before we wake up?!  How much risk are we fool enough to take until we learn that we cannot partake of the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil — or evolve, as is the case with the genetic code of the DNA spiral and escape the death-dealing consequence?  The DNA molecule is created by Life and belongs to Life, and we have no business tinkering with it.  We do so at our peril, as it is proving out.    

A RESTORATIVE PROCESS IS UNDERWAY

       There is a restorative process underway, and has been in progress ever since the Fall, to bring us back into alignment with the Great Spirit Creator and into the garden state.  At least two attempts have been made, the first of which was through Abraham and his immediate lineage that brought forth the nation of Israel and Moses, who led the children of Israel out of bondage in Egypt and to the “Promised Land” flowing with milk and honey.  But that was as far as human beings at the time moved with that cycle. 

       The cycle of movement through the physical plane was brought to a point of completion, and failure, with King Solomon, who let his success and empirical power, along with his collection of feminine royalty, consume him.  This level is the domain of the Spirit of the New Earth, and there was great expectancy on the part of the tribes of Israel, for example, to come to a new land flowing with milk and honey, an expectancy that was realized after forty years of rebellion and consequent hardship in the wilderness.

      Throughout the Old Testament there is an expectancy of the “coming of a Messiah.” This attempt from the level of the physical plane failed to restore humanity back to God and closed with a promise of a Messiah who would come and restore the kingdom of heaven on earth. But it would not be an earthly kingdom.  It would be a heavenly kingdom that resides within each one, indicating that the garden state is first a spiritual reality based on spiritual consciousness and only secondly, and consequentially, an earthly experience of Paradise.

     A restoration in human consciousness, then, is what is underway — and it began with the incarnation of the Lord of Love 2000+ years ago in the Middle East — which today has become a hotbed of religious wars and human suffering.  The sacred fire of Love is at work through the Spirit of Purification cleansing the body of humanity of hatred, greed and fear, along with a host of other demons . . . and not just in the Middle East. 

     How much more of this cleansing can we bear?  How much of our past can we bear to remember, forgive and move on from.  More pertinent to the Master’s words above: How much of the radiance of our own Being, the “immortal and invisible” image of God revealed through us on Earth, can we bear?  How much peace and joy and happiness?  How much truth can we bear?  How much are we willing and ready to let go of our beliefs, our concepts and opinions, move beyond them, in order to come to the place of knowing and living the truth of life that is love; love of God and of one another?  Oneness with the All that Is?

     The Master told his disciples I have yet many things to say unto you, but ye cannot bear them now.”  Can we bear them today?  The Holy Spirit, the promised Comforter, is coming now upon the clouds of human consciousness and is bringing to remembrance all the things the Master Jesus said and taught his disciples when he was on earth.  Authors and spiritual teachers abound repeating almost verbatim his gospel of love, of compassion, of forgiveness and of thankfulness.    

Listen! The Comforter speaks in our hearts to our minds: “Be still and know that I AM , , , , and lo, I am with you always, even to the end of the age.”

     I will continue with this provocative and essential consideration and meditation in my next post where I will share the powerful and pragmatic conclusion in a meditation on The Way of the Master.  I welcome your thoughts.

Steps of Ascent 2: BE The Fire of Fusion

“Eventually, the time comes when you mourn the comfort you felt in the chaos of the fire. You embrace the smoke and you rise up into your purpose.” (Embracing the Smoke, JESSICA LYNN)

(Jessica Lynn just started following my blog.  I went to her blog and liked what I found there.  You might like it as well.  Click on her name above to visit her.)

As much as I enjoy and value our virtual gatherings by Zoom, I do miss our physical gatherings where we sat in a circle and shared attunement with one another and shared face-to-face our thoughtful expressions of the One Spirit as it moved around the circle to find who is the one it wished to speak through next.  I just love working and sharing in the group dynamic, especially when we tone together, something we can’t do on Zoom very effectively.

I would like to share such an event from out of the past when we were all exploring diverse and innovative ways of generating spiritual substance together.  This event took place at an attunement workshop here in the South.

     A group of about forty were participating in such a musical release one weekend attunement practitioners gathering and something absolutely wonderful and coherent revealed itself.  I had instructed those standing beside their partners, who were sitting, to hold a contact point with their right hand over the chest of their partner, where the Thymus gland is located, and position the left hand above the crown of the head, where the pointed fingers would be in direct alignment with the Pineal Body located in the center of the brain.  I then asked them to be very still and quiet and listen for a tone sounding silently in the dense substance of pneumaplasm that was by then permeating this particular gathering of friends, who had been moving together for several hours that day in a weekend workshop. As this was done, I asked them to sound that tone with their voices upon my signal.  Much to our delightful surprise, everyone sounded the exact same tone right on key, with one or two exceptions who sounded a tone that was one of the natural harmonic overtones of the one tone the majority were chanting. You can imagine the beautiful sound that this unified expression made. It was exquisite, with just the right and balanced volume laced with just the right and fitting number of harmonic tones being sounded, again just the right number.

       This experience demonstrated to us that we are one yet different from each other, and that One Tone sounds throughout the entire body of mankind, finding a point of focused resonance in each one at the level of the pure and silent heart. The Thymus, as we have seen, is the fourth of the seven endocrine glands, representing the connecting point between the three above and the three below it, bringing to focus the Spirit of Purification, which brings to us assurance about our identity as beautiful, innocent, and radiant angelic beings.

       From that moment on throughout the balance of our time together we were an entirely different group. Something entirely new had come into focus, through each one individually and through the collective gathering. We had participated in the shining of light through flesh, of fusion between spirit and form, as the glow in the room gave ample evidence.  Spirit, released through musical sound as a carrier wave, had created a new entity with our grouping, or perhaps had allowed the Presence of the One Great Spirit we comprise altogether to be made manifest in our midst. Whatever it was and with whatever words one may use to describe it, we as a group were not the same as before, and we knew it.

       We also knew that the current of unified radiation that had surely been released through us went forth into the world to accomplish whatever the Great Spirit had to accomplish in and through us that day. It was a beautiful and intense, yet simple and very humbling experience. Humbling because we knew that what we had generated and gathered together within our sacred circle as refined substance, as fun as the gathering was and as delightfully healing and transforming the intense substance felt in our own bodies, the purpose for it was beyond us.  We were available and therefore used by Spirit for the purposes of Spirit. What those purposes were no one of us had the slightest clue, in the sense of something specific that might have been influenced by the impact of the release of spirit through us.  We were not interested in speculating about it either. Our own personal and collective experience of transformation, real as it was, was certainly not the purpose. That was merely a phase in the whole process of what needed to find release through us. In that sense it was a necessary part of the purpose, but the purpose was larger than us. Our purpose in letting the vehicle of our collective substance come into form in order to accommodate the greater release through us of Spirit was simply that, to provide Love with a means of action in the world where we are. That is all.  And it was, incidentally, a wonderful experience of healing and transformation.

       Moments of intensity, such as this, are truly delightful. The fact that a larger purpose, often beyond our scope of vision and ability to observe, is served in and through them in no way diminishes the feeling of exhilaration and sense of wonderment.  It is our holding onto them and wanting more of such moments for our own satisfaction, or even entertainment, that diminishes their potency and eventually prevents us from experiencing them at all. On the other hand, allowing them to serve a higher order and larger purpose in our own consciousness of inclusiveness, broadens our depth of ecstasy and brings us more completely into the very hub of creativity at the core of our being where “firm control and awful power eternally abide.” In this way we are not thrown out into utter confusion, or carried away in emotional bubbles that vanish into thin air, by our mental interpretation of or emotional reaction to what we are experiencing.  We are held steady in the place of absolute stillness where we may continue to abide in the safety and clarity of assurance that the truth is true and all is well, an assurance of the truth of love that only the Spirit of Purification can bring about. ♦

MEETING FIRE WITH FIRE

      Speaking of purification, there’s nothing more pure than fire.  When a conflagration is completed, nothing remains but the fire and a bit of smoking ash.  This is so in what is vogue these days in the cremation of our human remains, what we leave behind when we make our transition back Home into the realms of light.  It is likewise so when the fire of purifying love moves through heart, mind and body.  One may feel a bit frayed and fragile after a fire of rebuke has burned through one’s heart and mind, especially when one’s human ego is sizzled in the process and left limp.  I’ve had that experience more than once when it felt like words being spoken by someone were directed toward me specifically.  Ouch!  But it’s a good hurt.  We can meet the fire of purification with our own angelic fire and discover in the encounter that they are one and the same.  Our angelic fire is the fire of purification. 

     I recall a phase in my initial awakening decades ago when my entire outer being was so fused with my angelic emergence that my eyes were ablaze with light and my body felt it was in the cool blue center of a flame.  I remember how my receptionist, who was also on this path to spiritual transformation, could not look into my eyes they were so bright. When I went outdoors into the summer sunshine I felt no heat from the sun and I welcomed the rays of sunlight as part of what and who I Am.  I was meeting fire with fire and it felt so wholesome and natural.  I Am the Sun!

     That went on for several months and eventually led to a moment of transmutation and levitation during a shared group attunement and weekly world blessing service in which I participated, along with several others in various locations around the globe.  I was alone in a garden setting of a monastery when this occurred. I will share insights and implications relating to this experience in a future post. 

     At this time of increasing intensity, it suffices to say that if we are to ascend to a higher vibration — rise up into our purpose, as Jessica worded it — we must be utterly in love with Love, with the fire of transmutation, and meet the fire as our own angelic fire.  Identify with the fire.  BE the fire of fusion.  Find the cool blue undisturbed center of the flame and dwell there.  It’s the one and only way to move out of the heat and discomfort zone in a world aflame — physically, mentally, emotionally as well as spiritually.  It’s only going to get hotter around the edges of the flame.  So stay in the cool blue center.  Let’s up our radiant expression of uplifting spirit and help the world renew itself . . . while embracing the smoke and blessing the ash left behind.   I welcome your thoughts. ♥

Steps of Ascent 1: Fusing Flesh with Spirit

When two substances vibrate together at the same rate of frequency, they fuse into one substance.

I would like to complete this cycle of sharing from my book SACRED ANATOMY in my blog.  In this post, I visit the final chapters where I meditate on the process of transmutation of flesh and ascension to higher levels of vibration, in some instances where the “rainbow body” is experienced.  The way of ascension is available and open to those who seek that path.  I am such a seeker.  Here is an excerpt from the last chapter of my book.  I think you will enjoy reading it. 

STEPS OF ASCENT 

     LET US COMPLETE our meditative journey through the sacred anatomy of the body temple with a final meditation on the steps of ascent that can take us, individually and collectively, into the garden state within, where we would know our oneness with God while we are incarnate in these flesh temples. I will start by returning to the very beginning of this writing. 

     What if, indeed, we could travel through all the dimensions of the seven planes of being; if there were no veil between heaven and earth; and if we could ascend back up into the Realms of Light and return to this plane once we had rejuvenated our bodies and souls. 

     As we have just finished considering at length, the love-technology, chemistry and alchemy to enable this process are already available to us in our sacred anatomy.  All we need do is take the steps leading to absolute and total attunement with love so that our bodies absorb the radiation of love so fully that they become as radiant as love itself. All we need do is utterly abandon ourselves to the Father’s will within and let love work its wonderful magic upon our hearts, our minds and our bodies.

     The technology of love is inherent in what I have spoken of as the Creative Process, sometimes referred to as The Divine Formula: radiation, response, attraction, union, unified radiation.  The irresistible attraction of love, the Father within, will do all the work of drawing us upward into the Garden state.  Our work is to take the steps leading into the Temple of Light where oneness is known with the All and with all of Creation.

Fusing Flesh with Spirit

       RESONANCE with the vibration of love induces the processes of resurrection and ascension.  There is a law of physics which states that when two substances vibrate together at the same rate of frequency, they fuse into one substance. The Universal Entity within which we are contained—and yet, strangely, from which we feel so separate—sounds the Tone that summons all resonant substance out of chaos and into order.  This Tone is conveyed to all things in the universe through the connecting substance of what I will call “pneumaplasmic space” and is carried through tissue by the current of life itself.  [The word pneumaplasm was coined by Lloyd A. Meeker (Uranda) to identify the substance of connection between spirit and flesh that provides a medium for the transmission of life’s designs and instructions for creating and maintaining our body temples.]

       When the body oscillates at the same frequency as this Tone, which is differentiated into seven frequencies, as with light, the two become one.  Light, or spirit, no longer remains silent and invisible, and form no longer remains mere physical flesh.  Spirit is seen and experienced as radiating through flesh and flesh as transparent substance.  An entirely new and different state of being is known when flesh fuses with spirit. 

     Now, what that is is yet largely unknown for all practical purposes.  However, it is certainly not mere theory and speculation any longer.  From my own personal though very limited experience, it is entirely knowable and, in fact, known in isolated human experience, including the Master Jesus’s experience as it has been recorded and handed down to us.  

       ATTUNEMENT is a technology of love and as such a sacred healing art purposed for facilitating transformation, resurrection, transmutation and ascension—essentially the fusion of flesh with spirit.  In the attunement process, the molecules that make up the cells of the body are drawn upward to resonate with the vibration of love.  All the molecules of the body are obedient to the commands of love as they are sent forth into the body-temple by the Seven Spirits of Love, which are energetic vibratory forces operating through the seven endocrine glands and their many and varied hormone crystals, which, as we have seen, carry the vibrational directives of spirit in the form of light to the body cells.

     As the attunement practitioner works with the seven endocrine glands and corresponding Chakra centers, attuning them and bringing them into a state of coherence within themselves and into harmony and balance with one another, the Seven Spirits, or vibratory forces of the Spirit of Love, find clearer and, therefore, more potent focus.  Rarified substance of pneumaplasm begins to accumulate and fill the sacred space between spirit and flesh, providing a medium for the propagation of the Tone throughout the entire body-temple. The differentiated Tone goes forth creating harmonics throughout the body-temple manifesting as health and wellness.  Flesh is imbed and fused with Spirit. 

     This is a technology anyone may learn and utilize as a spiritual practice in uplifting the vibratory frequency of the physical body so as to make it more available to the process of attraction and union with one’s own incarnate Divine Being.  A simple act of kindness or an expression of thankfulness generates this substance as well.  

       Further, each one of us oscillates to the Tone in unique sets of harmonic frequencies.  A perfect analogy of this can be readily enjoyed while listening to the Mormon Tabernacle Choir, or some other choral group.  Here one may hear voices ranging from high soprano to deep bass, and, although they are all singing at least in four-part harmony and blend together in their parts to create ideally a pure and single sound as though it were one voice singing each part, if you listened to each voice individually you would discover that no two of them are alike. Each one has its own unique quality of tone and resonance, as well as projection and penetration. 

     Well, one might argue, these differences in vocal capacity and pitch are determined by hormones and resonant structures in the vocal apparatus and cranial bones and so forth, and  I would agree.  But what force and design determines the number and varying combinations of hormones used in the growth and development, and further refinement and playing, of the artist’s musical instrument, which the body is to the incarnate angel?  It is spirit, of course, and each one of us is unique.

     Here is something you can do right now to find your own uniqueness of spirit and tonal frequency. Come to a place of stillness and quiet and listen for those harmonic tones as they vibrate in the inner and inaudible spaces within.  They are often felt in the thymus region just over the heart.  There will be a dominant tone sounding above all the rest in each one, depending upon which endocrine gland is dominant in the individual—and there is a dominant endocrine gland in each one of us.  When you find that tone, begin sounding it, softly and then loudly. Notice how you feel as you sound it.

     Now place your open hands on your lap about six inches apart with palms facing one another to create an energy ball. Then go to a part in your body that hurts or is ill and place an image of that part inside the energy ball.

     The key here is to be still and sense which part of your body has a certain pressure within it seeking, as it were, to find release. Now, allow yourself to enter into that place of pressure in your body, wherever it may be, and listen carefully to what is going on in this space, naming the color, taste and even the smell of what you feel.

       Initially, one may feel emotional patterns of grief or deep frustration and self-pity, even worry and anxiety. That is all right. That is what is present in this particular space.  Now, go ahead and start groaning with your voice, perhaps just sighing or breathing deeply and fiercely at first.  Let those deep feelings be vented outward through whatever sounds they may naturally make.  (You might wish to be somewhere private where no one will hear you and think you are in distress or something.)  Do not be surprised or alarmed if you start crying without seeming cause.  Keep on letting the flow of the feeling currents translate themselves into audible sounds. 

     Now, gently move those harsh sounds upward a pitch or two until they become more coherent and you reach a pitch that just locks in and holds your voice in an easy but strong release of sound.  Hone in on that sound so that it becomes more clear and beautiful.  Then just pour out your spirit of unconditional love and acceptance of yourself and your feelings through that clear and beautiful note.  Soften it a bit and just enjoy playing around with it.  Listen to it lovingly, because that is your own unique resonant expression of the Tone that orchestrates the entire Universe.  It is your resonant tone, or at least a close relative harmonic of it.  Sing some of the other harmonic notes and create “your song.”  Obtain a quartz crystal bowl tuned to that pitch, or one of its harmonics, and play it as you sing your song. Use this to help fuse your spirit with your body, your Self with your incarnating equipment, your harp.

       As you become more adept in utilizing this simple technique of toning, you will actually begin to feel lighter physically and your flesh will feel as though it were glowing with light.  That is because it is.  This is magic—white-light magic—and it is fun and practical as well.

       Now, one can team up with a friend and have a lot more fun harmonizing your individual tones. Two people make an entirely new configuration of harmonic possibilities. Add a third and a fourth and still further possibilities of harmonic chanting are possible. As the numbers in the group change, so do the overall harmonics change creating a unified expression of a single sound. Perhaps this is an echo of the “sound of many waters.”  Notice it is not plural.  It is a single consolidated blend of sound of many waters that make audible the silent Tone that plays all of our instruments at the same time from one Core of Being. In that place at the Core of Being we are one.  We are the One. This is the essence of true community. ♦

I will tell you about an amazing experience of group toning in my next post. Until then, 

Keep toning.

Up, Up and Away! We’re Ascending!

“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)

Eleven years ago, I began sharing meditations on the beauty and spiritual significance of our physical anatomy from my book SACRED ANATOMY.  Three years ago I picked up the theme again and began sharing excerpts  on the subject of our 7 endocrine glands and the Seven Spirits of Love expressing through them. Then back in March of this year I began sharing a series of meditations on  The Spirit of the New Earth Vibration. 

I am moved to visit the last chapter of SACRED ANATOMY in which I explore and meditate upon the transmutation and ascension of the body temple that is underway in sync and in resonance with the energetic upgrade to a higher frequency our planet Earth is presently undergoing, along with the entire solar system.  The Schumann resonance, for instance, the heartbeat of the earth, has been steady at 7.83Hz until three years ago when it began to accelerate to somewhere in the 15 to 25Hz levels.  Everything from our brain waves and biorhythms to our states of consciousness are directly correlated to the Earth’s frequencies.  The Earth is rapidly shifting her vibration, as are we.  In other words, ascension is in progress compelling us to let go of the old and embrace the new us emerging.

In way of introduction, I will turn to the front of my book for a bit of archaic context and background.

Seven Golden Candlesticks

“and in the midst . . . one like unto the Son of man”  

In the Book of Revelation, written by John, the Beloved Disciple, he recounts a vision he had while in exile on the isle called Patmos.  John writes that he had this vision while he was “in the spirit on the Lord’s day.”  What he saw, then, was of a spiritual nature.  It also had design and dimensions, apparently with much detail of diverse colors and even sounds.    

What John actually saw when he “turned to see the voice” that spoke with him, no one can really say.   According to the description John wrote down, it was the image in heaven of a Man who was in appearance like unto God.  Perhaps the image was that of Man restored to his true multi-dimensional state of oneness with God.  Whatever it was, John saw a design, and it was quite beautiful and mystical, according to the detailed account in Revelation.  Standing in the midst of that design was one who manifested radiant characteristics.      

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)

John saw and wrote much more, but I will confine our meditations to these two texts, honing in on what he describes here as the “Son of man” in the midst of the “seven golden candlesticks” and the “throne set in heaven.”   To initiate our consideration, I would like to refer to the inspired writings of Lloyd Arthur Meeker, who wrote and taught under the pen name of “Uranda.”   I think they will help evoke in our hearts a sense of the sacred context in which these things can be seen, as well as an understanding of who it is that is seeing them, thereby drawing us into a perspective revealed in the vision John described.  Referencing verses from the Chapter 1 of Revelation, Uranda wrote:

Even as he [John] was imprisoned on the Isle of Patmos, so art thou imprisoned on the “isle of fleshly being.”  But prison walls could not contain or limit the Illumined One, neither should thy prison walls contain or limit thee.

V10.  He was IN the Spirit on the vibration of the Lord’s life—that is, he attained to Oneness with his MASTER-SELF and was thereby liberated into the limitless realms of Spirit.  While in this state of SOUL UNION he heard a Voice BEHIND him, indicating that it is necessary for thee, when thou art seeking Soul Union in Silent Meditation, to TURN thy attention from all things earthly, that thou mayest see things heavenly.  This CHANGE ABOUT of attention is the first requirement which thou must fulfill if thou wouldst SEE. The trumpet sound of the Aum-like Voice thrills through every fibre of the one who hears, and when thou hast once heard that Voice, which is like the “sound of many waters,” thou wilt never rest content until thou hast ENTERED IN WITH HIM.

V12, vibrating to Mastery, reveals the Way. “I turned to SEE the Voice.”  Until thou hast TURNED thou art denied the thrill of SEEING.  The attainment of Mastery IS THE TURNING, and when thou hast TURNED thou shalt SEE the VOICE, for in the Realms of Light thou canst  SEE SOUND, and the vision of it may not be described in words which mortal ear can comprehend.   (Steps To Mastership, Lesson 42)

These words of Uranda resound loudly in my heart and arouse a powerful sense of deja vu.  The voice is loud and clear, as the sound of many waters, and the trumpet’s tone reverberates through every fiber of my being.  I have turned to see the voice that speaks with me and being turned I see seven golden candlesticks, which I would now invite you to meditate upon.

The Menorah

The seven-branched candlesticks of the temple in the Jewish religion is called the Menorah[Click on the link for details on its design and construction.]  Its seven branches represent the seven days of creation, the seven levels of heaven, the seven days of the week and the seven inner planets of the solar system.   These were likely the most visible to early astronomers with the farthest-most planets hardly noticeable to the naked eye even today.  However, on the Menorah itself,  I note that there are ten spheres in all.  The ten spheres may also represent the ten Sefirot after the Judaic tradition of the Kabala, the ten divine utterances that initiated creation of the world and the ten centers of energy in the human body.   It is possible the three situated on the lower half of the center candlesticks represent the three entities of air, water and fire that created the earth.  

In religious and spiritual rituals the candle is an important emblem, standing for spiritual illumination, the Christ, the Church, joy, faith and the presence of the divine.  We will let the seven golden candlesticks represent for us the seven dimensional world of Light in which we live and have our being, and over which reigns the “Lord of the Sacred Seven.”  Uranda portrays them here as representing the seven planes of being:                                                                

The Seven Golden Candlesticks symbolize the Seven Planes, or the Seven Worlds which make up the Holy World. These were SEEN by the Illumined One, and thou mayest also SEE them in their glory.  V13. In the MIDST of the Seven he saw ONE.  The MIDDLE ONE of Seven is FOUR, no matter from which end of the Seven thou mayest count.  Therefore, the One who ‘spake with me’ was on the MIDDLE PLANE OF BEING, that is, the Fourth Plane, or the Fourth Dimension.  The Illumined One told all the secrets of  the Fourth Dimension long ago, and even as he saw and understood them, so mayest thou.   

The ONE he saw was ‘clothed with a garment down to the foot,’ that is, He had a body that could be SEEN, a body that is beautiful and glorious as thou shalt see.  In Fourth Plane Being there is nothing vague or intangible.  All things there are of the REAL, and much clearer and more substantial to the enlarged senses than things the world calls real.  The world which mankind knows is made up of the first Three Worlds, and he who seeks to judge all Life according to these first Three, knows not of what he speaks. When thou hast SEEN THE SACRED SEVEN, then shalt thou KNOW. 

The Seven Churches illustrate the Seven Phases of mankind’s development as such development relates to the SEVEN PLANES OF BEING which are under the directing control of the ‘Seven Spirits which are before His throne.’  The Seven Spirits are the Seven Beings who are the Rulers of the Seven Planes.   (STM, Lesson 42)  

We live in a seven-dimensional world, although we have limited ourselves primarily to two, the physical and the mental, with a largely mixed-up and suppressed emotional experience of religiosity or spirituality in our hearts.  It is little wonder, then, that we feel frustrated and unfulfilled much of the time.  There is so much more to us and to the world in which we live than we are aware of or even have space in our hurried lives to encompass. 

In his riveting and truly enlightening book, “Rhythms Of Vision,” Lawrence Blair writes:

Our time is distinguished by its isolation from the miraculous….  Immunized against the radiance of our existence, we are aware of only a fraction of the spectrum of vibration in which we have our being….  

We can only see those portions of the vibratory spectrum of which we ourselves are composed, and which we know and express.  For example, we see the beautiful in ourselves and others only to the extent that we ourselves are expressing beauty in our lives.   Beauty, it has been said, is in the eyes of the beholder.  In other words, we see what we are attuned to.   Attuned to beauty, we will see beauty everywhere we look.  John was attuned to his Beloved Lord and therefore saw him in his transmuted flesh body, which radiated light from seven dimensions.

Apparently, John’s vision was a glorious and colorful one of things quite mysterious. But what did it symbolize?  I suggest that what he saw was the sacred anatomy of the One who was appearing to him, supposedly the One whom he knew as the Master.  It is also possible, and highly likely, that what he was perceiving in a visionary and mystical way was the spiritual anatomy of his own incarnate being shining through the transparent flesh of his physical form.

Uranda’s words demonstrate the understanding of one who has experienced what he is describing.  What an inviting door he opens to the attainment of mastery in the art of living out of heavenly rather than earthly identity.   But first we must turn, and then we must learn to “see” the world of vibrations and the things of spirit, not with our physical but with our spiritual eyes.  These seven glorious dimensions of being which John beheld are reflected in our own physical anatomy.  Let us explore them now.

This is the introduction to a meditative journey through the sacred terrain of our body temple. I will skip to the last section of the book for the final meditation in my next post. Until then, 

Be love. Be loved

Spirit of the New Earth Vibration, pg 6: Grounding Masculine Energy

“He who is near me is near the fire.  He who is far from me is far from the kingdom of heaven.” —Jesus  (The Gospel of Thomas)

In my awakening years I had engaged the fiery dance between the Divine Masculine and Divine Feminine and released the power of feminine energy through my very masculine body.  Back in the day this effulgence was known as “the outpouring of the Holy Spirit,” which I later learned is feminine in nature.  With spiritual awakening came an awareness that who and what I am is neither male nor female, but both. 

I am an angelic being with masculine and feminine energies at my command for creative purposes.  Incarnate in this wonderful male physical form, I discovered that it is far too fragile in its fallen state to fully accommodate the fiery revelation of the angel.  So I’ve learned to turn down the fire in order to remain incarnate and useful while moving through transformation toward spiritual maturity.   

My father’s generation was dominantly patriarchal. My generation’s role has been to provide a bridge for the next generation to cross over into a more balanced experience of these two powerful and complementary archetypal creative energies — which I opened up to full-throttle in my awakening years and nearly set my body aflame.  Those were destabilizing years of radical shift in self-awareness and identity.  I pray the upcoming generation survives to experience ascension to a higher level of being.  It has already undergone a transformation to a higher level of consciousness — and form follows consciousness. 

From SACRED ANATOMY

GROUNDING HIS POWER

ONE OF THE CHARACTERISTICS of the Divine Masculine is his open-armed welcome of the Divine Feminine, because, after all, she is his natural dancing partner and the source of his empowerment.  He welcomes her also for the grounding she provides.

I recall an occasion in my own spiritual transformation when my physical form came into direct alignment with the radiant energy of my own angelic presence.  I had tapped into raw power and it was more than my outer form could handle.  At one point, I had difficulty staying on the ground. At night my body would burn with electrical currents running up and down my spine and legs.  My entire capacity felt as though it were on fire and I thought it would burst into flames at any moment. Then a presence was felt in the room like that of a woman.  I immediately felt at peace as the electrical currents subsided. 

At another point in the same time period of several weeks, I felt I was simply going to ascend into another dimension while singing in front of a group of people gathered for a worship service.  Sound has a way of shifting cellular oscillation.  I felt guided to make eye contact with a woman in the gathering with whom I shared a spiritual intimacy and whom I loved with a love that was from a place beyond this world.  As I deliberately looked into her eyes, I immediately felt drawn back down to the floor and anchored to the ground.  Her presence was a grounding force for me.

These were the first of many lessons to come to me about the design of true function between the masculine and the feminine.  I had a new and deeper respect for womankind from that point on, although I had a lot more to learn about both the masculine and the feminine before beginning to understand the dynamics between these two co-creative energetic forces.

In our society, what Carl Jung called “the Anima” (a man’s feminine side) is often squelched.  The young boy who starts to cry, for instance, is told by his father to stop crying and “Be a man!”  To display his feminine side is to appear weak in the eyes of his peers. The truth be known, the feminine reinforces the authenticity of the masculine.   Moore and Gillette knew this all too well when they wrote their books exploring the male and female psyche.

But if a man consciously seeks to develop a relationship with his Anima at the same time he seeks a deeper accessing of his masculine characteristics, he will find his masculinity affirmed and supported.

By acknowledging his feminine side a man raises his consciousness about complementary masculine structures, and can be inspired to achieve fullness of being as a man.  As his sense of deeply grounded masculinity becomes more secure, he is free to claim his feminine qualities without fear of being overwhelmed by them.  His capacity for creative expression will multiply exponentially.  His relationships with women in the outer world will likewise take a positive turn.  Such a man, his masculinity reinforced by his inner feminine, can meet life with a centered sense of wholeness and compassion not often seen in our culture. (The King Within, page 121)

In a word, he becomes “sensitive” to the finer vibrational frequencies of the feminine energies emerging from within himself as well as those around him, including the world of Mother Nature.  Perhaps he would then respect her more fully and acknowledge the sanctity of her presence.  Surely he would stop raping her for her resources and stripping her of her lush and verdant beauty. When a man rapes a woman, I have learned, it is not for sexual pleasure but for power and control. When he rapes the natural world for her resources he does so because he can, he has the power to do it, and that gives him a warped sense of control over the wild kingdoms of this world, as though he must conquer them to know that he truly is all-powerful and resourceful. This is less a demonstration of real power and more an application of brute force. The control he refuses to apply to his own appetite for satisfaction and pleasure is projected away from himself and forced upon his world, which embodies all the essences of the Feminine.

The Dominating Masculine

Raw, ungrounded masculine energy, in men as well as women, develops into an unbalanced charge of power that seeks a channel for release, much as the electrical charge in a thunder-head cloud seeks to ground itself through a bolt of lightning.  It is corruptive when used to control the power inherent in the feminine in order to suppress it. Nowhere is such corruption more prevalent than in the social structures of modern civilization where women have been made to compete with men in a patriarchal society for equal opportunities for employment and equal pay, not to mention the historical suppression and continual deprivation of women in the Middle East and other parts of the world. Vestiges of this deprivation are yet to be found in today’s Christian religions, such as in the Roman Catholic Church where women are excluded from its priesthood and its priests deprived of the natural companionship of a wife.

There was also a reversal of the roles the male and female played in the ritualistic approach to worship of and union with God. Whereas before, even in the first three centuries of the Early Christian Era,  it was the priestess who provided the erotic alchemy through which men might commune and merge with God, now it is the priest who is believed to provide the liturgical alchemy that makes such communion with the divine possible for women.  Sex is left out of the picture altogether, with the exception of its limiting but necessary role in procreation.  It is as though the early Church Fathers of the first ecumenical council held at Nicaea in AD 325, were intent upon making the statement that union with God is only possible by way of the all-male priesthood and is not to be sought after through the erotic alchemy of the feminine priestess, whose sacred order was simply eliminated altogether with the priestess decreed a witch and burned at the stake. Men have long maintained control over women, but that is coming to an end as the corruption in this male-dominated culture continues to erode the patriarchal model of leadership by imposition and intimidation.  Love neither imposes nor intimidates.

This patriarchal treatment of women as second class citizens appears to have roots as far back as the early Christian era when pagan goddess temples were either converted into Christian churches or utterly destroyed. In ancient religions, God was known and worshiped in male and female as well as sexless deities. According to Houston Smith, in The World’s Religions, in Islam Allah was simply “the God,” neither masculine nor feminine.  In pre-Islamic times, Allah “was worshiped by Meccans not as the only God but as….creator, supreme provider, and determiner of human destiny.”

In the Kabbalistic tradition the name of God once included an entire family: Father, Mother, Son, Daughter (Yod He Vav He), a name which is supposedly coded in our DNA, also known as the Tetragrammaton which is the Greek name for the four sacred letters in the word Yahweh (YHWH). “From this holy ‘Name of Names’ emanates the Ultimate Divine Vibration.  It is the ‘word of light’ that becomes life” (Deborah Van Dyke, Traveling The Sacred Sound Current: Keys for Conscious Evolution).

In its most ancient of forms, dating back six or seven thousand years ago to the Canaanite language, Allah was Alat, or Elat, the feminine gender.  The concept of God embodied by the word Allah was based in its meaning, which is Sacred (or Cosmic) Unity.  “All of these names,” writes Scottish Aramaic scholar Neil Douglas-Klotz, “are based around the root el and al, which points toward the unity of existence, embodied in a name that idealized the sacred.”

In truth, the sacred is embodied when the Divine Masculine and the Divine Feminine are one and function together as partners in creation, symbolized in Hindu tradition as the lingam, “which is not exclusively a phallic symbol, as is often thought. Rather, it symbolizes the masculine and the feminine conjoined.” (Thomas Ashley-Ferrand,  Mantra – Sacred Words of Power).

  The Egyptians, Greeks and Romans all worshiped gods and goddesses as equal partners in their lives and fate.  The God of Genesis is androgynous, creating Man male and female in our own image and likeness.  Interestingly enough, in the Judeo-Christian tradition, Wisdom (Sophia), who was present in the creation of this world, is a Goddess—or is at least seen as the feminine aspect of the androgynous deity—and the Holy Spirit is seen by some contemporary  Christian theologians as being the feminine aspect of God.  The Feminine Principle has also been acknowledged and accessed throughout the history of Christianity in the veneration of the Blessed Virgin Mary as an intercessor between Roman Catholics and the Lord Jesus.        

The question might rightly be asked, as it has been by some, why is God worshiped today only as “He?”  Why should not God be known and worshiped in the feminine gender as “She?”   Is it not “She” who gives birth to “Him?”  Is not Mother God as divine as Father God and as responsible for the creation of this world?  There are cultures in the world that do still celebrate the Feminine Principle, although in by far the majority of religions in the world, women are subordinate to men and the feminine aspect of God is made to serve the will and pleasure of the masculine and often ignored or denied outright.  Women have had to demand to be heard and given equal rights alongside men. Today these cultural assumptions are all being challenged by the “liberated feminine” in men and women, who are both becoming acquainted with their whole Self.

Through all the tomes of spiritual writings, one instruction stands out above all the rest: “Man, know thyself and thou wilt know God.”  The Reality of God is known and understood to the degree that I know and understand myself, made male and female in the image and likeness of God.  Our approach to God, then, is rightly one of discovery of our authentic Self.  In our social, political and religious traditions we have been thoroughly dominated and led forth by an image of the masculine side of God, largely by a dark, intimidating image.  Is it not time for us to be generously immersed in a light, nurturing, understanding Goddess in partnership with a caring and benevolent Godhead? 

In my next post, I examine the nature and function of the Divine Feminine.  As always, I welcome your thoughts on the subject of this post.  Until then,

Ne safe.   Be at peace.

Spirit of the New Earth Vibration, page 2: The Alchemy of Transmutation

 

For fifty-plus year as a holistic doctor, it has been my role and privilege to serve at the physical level of life’s domain and to bring the higher vibrations of Spirit into the lower levels of Life’s expression in and through the human body.  In keeping with the nature of that service, I have sought to elevate my consciousness, and that of those whom I have served, so as to gain insight beyond the surface of anatomical structure and physiological function and into the energetic world of the Spirit that creates the physical body and continues to maintain it through its years and decades of useful existence and service. To that purpose, I have written down my meditations and compiled them into a book which I entitled “SACRED ANATOMY,” because to me the temple of the living God is sacred in all of its designs and functions.

It is with some reserve that I proceed in sharing this consideration in a public forum such as this, as it is highly esoteric and sacred, intended for the initiated. The consideration of our sacred anatomy, presented here in the form of a meditation on transcendent essences, is not a scholarly study of human anatomy and physiology–although those aspects are given due consideration for accuracy. It is rather a presentation of firsthand esoteric knowledge, as previously noted, and inspired visionary insight and revelation.    

In that light, I will continue sharing excerpts focusing on the reproductive system and the hormonal glands of the gonads that produce the seeds that initiate the creative process that brings forth the human body—under the guidance and protection of the Spirit of the New Earth.  In this excerpt I share my meditation on the role these sacred vessels and their function play in the transmutation of atoms to the rare substance that provides clothing for the spiritual body of the incarnate angel. 

I believe It is our role as divine beings on the physical material plane to fuel the fire of ascension by which physical substance is transmuted and made rare for ascension.  That fire is the transmuting fire of the Spirit of Love at the highest vibration differentiated and stepped down as the Spirit of the New Earth at the lower end of the energy spectrum, as we considered in the previous post—which I encourage you to read, if you haven’t already, for the context it provides for this post.

The Spiritualization of Atoms  

   There is a remarkable and significant similarity between the shape and function of the Pineal Gland, with its mushroom-shaped head, and that of the male and female genitalia on the opposite end of the endocrine system.  They both serve as pointed vessels for focused release of a unified radiant current.  The sensation of intense pleasure during erection of both the glans penis and the clitoris, intensifying as orgasm begins to occur, is powerfully felt in the space behind the eyes where the Pituitary gland, with its anterior and posterior lobes–the Divine Masculine and Divine Feminine embracing in the sixth plane of being–rests in the Sella Tursica of the sphenoid bone at the base of the brain. With the facilitation of the Hypothalamus, and the Limbic System just above it in the brain, the pleasure center of the brain, the Pituitary receives the release of the golden light of love emanating from Spirit through the Pineal Body, embracing it on its way to the eyes and forehead and creating the sacred alchemy which allows the fire of love to pour forth from within.  The fire extends down and out through the sexual organs as well as outward through the eyes and permeating the entire body.  All the cells in the body temple are permeated by the radiant outpouring of love and therein rejuvenated in the ecstasy of sexual orgasm.

   With the outpouring of love’s emanations comes a refinement of pneumaplasm as it is drawn into the core of the ascending flame where it is refined even further.  This rarefied substance then rises to mingle with the substance of love contained within the heart.  The heart provides a safe place for the alchemy of transmutation to take place.  From this crucible, the substance continues on its journey upward reaching into the core and bringing the experience of heaven into the body temple.  Upon touching the core of love in our heart of hearts, pneumaplasm acts as a connecting substance between earth and heaven through which the currents of love pour forth into the body-temple and through the body-temple into one’s world.  Thus are the atoms in the earthly plane of being spiritualized and lifted up into the realm of spirit.  

   The experience of this release through the eyes is especially unifying as the two look into each other’s eyes to receive one another as angels while their union makes itself evident and powerfully felt.  Such moments of sacred sexual intimacy reveal the state of ecstatic union with the Beloved, from Whom a rich outpouring of love is known throughout the temple in waves of delightful pleasure. In his instructions on the “seven seals” Uranda describes what occurs at this level:

Here thou seest the activity of the Gonad Glands (ovary or testis) in harmony with the Christ Center in the Sacral region of thy spine.  Here it is that the active Spiritualization process begins, and as the body substance responds to the action of this Seal it is prepared for the ASCENSION. 

This Seal has been variously called the Cave of Darkness, the Serpent’s Seat, the Coil of Kundalini, the Manger of Birth (Bible), and by other names.  As this transmuted substance begins its ascension through the Seven Seals, it is spoken of, all through the Bible, as the River of Life; and the Tree of Life which extends from one side of the River of Life to the other side represents the Positive and Negative phases of the Seven Seals, under or through which the River of Life is flowing.  The Branches of the Trunk of the Tree extend from the Glands on the one side and from the Christ Centers in the Spine on the other side.  (STM, Lesson Fifty-four)¹

Kundalini Shakti 

   The spiritualization of atoms in the ascending fire of transmutation was known to the ancient Hindu world as “Kundalini Shakti.”  Thomas Ashley-Farrand, an expert in the use of Hindu and Buddhist mantras, as well as in ancient Eastern religious ceremonies, sheds some historical light on this power center: 

According to Hindu tradition, the nature of power is feminine.  Although the consciousness that triggers spiritual activity is said to be masculine, it is powerless without the feminine energy that drives it.  The shakti of kundalini, the feminine power cell lying in repose at the base of the spine, is dormant and latent in most of humanity.  When it becomes active even in the smallest degree, we develop the power to heal, the power to see things not yet come, and other special gifts of the Great Feminine.

It is taught that the locus of feminine power in our own bodies is the great kundalini power cell, which lies at the base of the spine.  Over the course of many lifetimes, this personal transformer powers our spiritual progress as its inherent shakti “awakens” and moves up the spine.  As the kundalini shakti touches the pituitary and pineal glands, it activates them in new ways, making more energy available to them. Dormant brain power potential becomes active in a way that cannot be described in words.

Shakti represents the active energy of the divine that powers all forms of creation.  In Hindu tradition, Shakti is anthropomorphized as the consort of Shiva [a masculine deity who directs the rising kundalini energy]. (From Mantra, Sacred Words of Power study guide.)² 

   These sacred vessels can be appreciated for the facilitation they provide in the process of ascension of atoms into the spiritual body of the angel incarnate.  The simple ceremony of caressing them gently so as not to arouse the glands into contraction and orgasm, or simply being still during intercourse, helps to initiate the movement of the current within the ascending flame, drawing atoms from out of the body substance into the upward spiraling flow.  In a rising current, atomic substance ascends before the throne of God in heaven, represented by the Pineal Body, to be transmuted by sacred alchemy into angelic light substance.  Thus is union with the Divine attained through this sacred practice and ritual.

   This is an alchemical fire that burns through and within the flesh but does not consume it. The Crown Chakra plays a role here as well. A single ascending current of golden substance begins to flow and can be felt moving up through the Pineal Gland of both lovers.  In the midst of this sacred alchemy one suddenly knows the other as oneself. Flesh becomes vibrationally fused so that the partners feel what each other is experiencing and lose all sense of separateness, spiritually as well as physically.

   This is, without exception, a most holy and powerful experience of union with the Beloved. Out of this union between two angels on earth comes a most exquisite, yet easy, release of love through a unified current of radiation as a portal is opened in heaven through which light pours out in ceaseless currents. These sacred times of worship, either alone or with another conscious angel, can be used to bring loved ones in our worlds, and our worlds themselves, into consciousness for blessing, healing and sanctification.  Consciousness then becomes an extension of the altar, now sanctified by the oil of love, upon which we may offer the tithes of our world of service upward for healing and spiritualization.   For anything that touches the altar is sanctified.  Sexual intimacy is very much an integral part of our angelic function as co-creators with God, and we would continually know that and participate in ascension as we return these sacred vessels to their holy purpose.  We do this by taking them into our priestly hands and celebrating our temple service to glorify God and to bless our world with shining light. ♦  

The world would be transformed in a cosmic moment were these sacred vessels, now desecrated by abuse in darkened understanding, sanctified and returned to their sacred function. In the wake of such transformative change, spiritualized atomic substance would begin to ascend through the levels of being to find its way back Home in the Heaven of heavens before the throne of God, whose creating substance it is.  In this sacred function, we as the Body of Man restored would fulfill and complete our primary purpose for existence: the return of praise and thanksgiving by way of spiritualized flesh to the Creator, whose world this is. This could only be done by divine beings, angels incarnate, who have come forth in a radiant apocalypse of light, and taken charge of the physical material world in the name of our Lord and King.  It will never be done by “mere humans” eking out transient pleasure in self gratification. Such temporary pleasure is as nothing compared to the ecstatic pleasure of priestly function in service to the Lord of the Sacred Seven.  

That said, the angel can come forth into conscious presence employing the alchemy of sacred sex as a path and means of opening the sacred seals to reveal the Presence of the One I AM.  This path has been taken before in ancient days by Pharaohs who sought to achieve apotheosis through sexual intimacy with the High Priestess, through whom he received his power to rule with divine authority.  It is a worthy and available path to those who would go that way in their transformation journey.  We will revisit this topic later in the chapter on Sacred Sex.  I invite and welcome your thoughts and inspirations. Until my next post in this series,

Be love.  Be loved.

LAGNIAPPE (Something extra for our urgent attention)

KISS THE GROUND movie: a two-and-a-half-minute trailer about a very hopeful film on saving the planet and our species with nothing more than growing grass on our farm lands through what is called “regenerative agriculture.”

Veiled Angelic Presence


Our Home among the stars

We are angels incarnate, come down from Heaven and cloaked in garments of flesh and bone taken up from the humus soil of the Earth to shine the light of love in the spirit of truth to steward the birth and creations of life. 

Recently, a group of us in different parts of the globe gathered in the upper room of consciousness for an hour to extend a stable hand into an unstable world.  We did this every day for three days.  In this upper room we are adorned in garments of light, lovingly present to one another and intimately known as kindred spirits, here to do our Father’s bidding.  Other smaller groupings of angels gather in “The Field” poet Rumi speaks of every week to hold the world in loving, healing hands, administering a radiant current of unconditional love. 

These kinds of angelic gatherings are becoming more and more frequent in our world as more and more awakened souls retreat from involvement in worldly affairs to make themselves available to heavenly affairs, standing with feet firmly planted in the physical world, angels in veiled presence, extending a firm and confident collective hand holding an old world changing form as it surrenders the substance of its dismantling structures upward, giving form to a New World. 

This is an historical event on planet Earth, and we are all privileged to be here at this time to play our individual and collective parts in the ascension process of a planet that is very special and precious to us and to our Lord and King.

Flower Light

In the day and time appointed, we will unveil our angelic presence in an apocalypse of Light, a revelation already in progress. Until that day and time, we remain cloaked in these blessed human garments.  In that day all of the natural world will shine with light in the colors of the rainbow and darkness will be no more. 

I resound with Handel’s proclamation in his immortal oratorio Messiah, based on Psalm 24: 

Lift up your heads, O ye gates; and be ye lift up ye everlasting doors; and the King of glory shall come in . . . .  Who is the King of glory? The Lord of hosts, he is the King of glory.” 

Back in the day I wrote and sang several songs, as many were doing.  This song pops into mind as I write this post:

THE HAPPY SONG OF LIFE  (5/20/91)

I see your face in the flow’rs that grace the path you place beneath my feet.

I see your face in the starlit sky that hovers high above my head tonight.

I see your face, yet the beauty lies within these eyes that see.

 

I hear your voice in the rippling sound of water rushing by as I draw near.

I hear your voice in the quiet space the stars embrace, their music fills my ear.

I hear your voice, yet the music sounds within the heart of me.

 

REFRAIN:  The heavens play your music 

While the Earth resounds the tone.

Your presence fills all the spaces

In my heart as in the sky.

So I’ll dance and sing the happy song of Life.

 

I feel your breath in the wind that blows upon my face and rustles through the trees.

I feel your breath in the storms that rage then quietly go — their passion fills me so.

I feel your breath as it ebbs and flows with every breath I take.

 

I know you’re here as I open to my world my very senses tell me so.

I know you’re here in the stillness of my heart and mind, your presence fills me so.

I know you’re here, and your spirit is the very life of me.  (Refrain)

 

FINAL REFRAIN:  The heavens play your music While the Earth resounds the Tone.
Let us join the celebration In our hearts as in the skies,

As we dance and sing the happy song of life.

I welcome any thoughts you may wish to share. Until my next post,

Be love.  Be loved

Kenosis: Self-Emptying Love 2, “The Gift of the Magi”

“Jesus said: Whoever has found the world and become rich should renounce the world . . . . The world is not worthy of one who finds himself.” — From The Gospel of Thomas

THE GIFT IS LOVE

Continuing with Cynthia Bourgeault’s insight into Jesus’s chosen kenotic path, I will forgo any introductory comments so as not to clutter the space with thoughts other than those presented in this excerpt from her book THE WISDOM JESUS:

A Pointless Sacrifice?

To flesh out a bit further what this path actually looks like, for­give me if I make a sudden leap into the world of modern litera­ture. Kenosis does not lend itself easily to spiritual theorizing. By far its most powerful and moving enactments have come in the form of story and drama.

One of the most precise descriptions of this path, believe it or not, is the familiar and well-loved story “The Gift of the Magi” by the American author O. Henry. You probably remember the tale. Della and James are newlyweds; they’re madly in love with each other. They are also poor as church mice, and their first Christmas together finds them without sufficient funds to buy each other gifts. But each of these lovers does have one prize possession. James owns a gold watch given to him by his grandfather; Della has stunning auburn hair falling all the way to her waist. Unbeknownst to Della, James pawns his gold watch in order to buy her beautiful silver combs for her hair. Unbe­knownst to James, Della cuts and sells her hair in order to buy him a gold watch chain. On Christmas eve the two of them stare bewilderedly at their completely useless gifts.  It has been a pointless sacrifice—pointless, that is, unless love itself is “the gift of the magi.”

And of course, this is exactly what O. Henry is getting at. In the voluntary relinquishing of their most cherished possessions, they make manifest what love really looks like; they give tangible shape to the bond that holds them together. That’s what kenosis is all about.

Another profoundly kenotic parable of our times is the tale that forms the 1987 movie Babette’s Feast, adapted from a short story by Isak Dinesen.  As the drama unfolds we discover that its heroine, Babette, had until recently been one of the most celebrated chefs in Paris, but during the political riots of 1871 she loses everything—restaurant, livelihood, and family. She flees for her life to rural Denmark and is taken in by two aging sisters who have given their lives to religious work, trying to hold together the spiritual community that their father founded. When Babette arrives, the remaining believers have grown old and weary, lost in petty bickering. Babette tries as best she can to lift their spirits, but nothing seems to be turning the situation around. Out of the blue a letter arrives informing her that she has won three million francs in a lottery back in Paris, and then and there she decides to treat these Danish peasants to a proper French dinner. She imports all the necessary ingredients: not only exotic gourmet delicacies for the seven-course meal itself (each with its appropriate wines, champagnes, and liqueurs) but the china dinnerware, silver cutlery, damask table cloths, and crystal glassware. The film zeroes in on the banquet table as the astonished Danish peasants are suddenly faced with this extrava­gant abundance. At first they are frightened and suspicious, but little by little the mood mellows as they slowly relax into gratitude and forgiveness. The last scene of that banquet night has them all stumbling, a bit drunk but very happy, out into the village square, where they form a circle around the fountain (a vivid image in its own right) and begin to sing and dance togeth­er. After all these years they have finally touched the wellspring, and their hearts are overflowing. Then someone says to Babette, “Well, I guess you’ll be leaving us soon, won’t you, now that you’re a rich woman?” She says, “Rich? I’m not rich. I spent every penny I had on that banquet, three million francs.”

Again we see the same leitmotif as in the O. Henry story. An extravagant sacrifice is in one sense wasted, because these poor peasants cannot really comprehend the magnitude of the gift, and by morning, when they’ve sobered up, they will probably have lost most of its beneficial effect. But no matter; the banquet table is set before them anyway. In her no-holds-barred generos­ity Babette offers these broken, dispirited souls a taste of reassur­ance that their long years of faithfulness have not been in vain. She mirrors to them what God is like, what love is like, what true humanness is like. And she does it precisely by throwing away her entire escape route in a single act of extravagant abundance, extravagant beyond the bounds of earth (and therefore invoking the presence of heaven). That’s the kenotic path.

Theologians have sometimes commented that if the goal of ascent mysticism is to bring about union through convergence at the point of origin, the effect of the kenotic path seems to be. self-disclosure and new manifestation. The act of self-giving brings new realms into being. It shows what God is like in new and different ways. Some of the most intuitive theologians of our times say that this is how the world was created in the first place—because, in the words of Karl Rahner, “God is the prodi­gal who squanders himself.” The act of self-giving is simulta­neously an act of self-communication; it allows something that was coiled and latent to manifest outwardly. “Letting go” (as in non-clinging, or self-emptying) is but a hair’s breadth away from letting be,” and our Judeo-Christian tradition remembers that it is through God’s original “Let there be . . . ” that our visible world tumbled into existence.

I love Cynthia’s authentic thinking and writing outside the box of conventional belief.  She presents a theology that I, as a former Catholic seminary student, can easily accept and understand at a heart level.  In my own published writings and blogging, I have ascribed to “ascent mysticism” as the path of ascension to the “point of origin” we think to be up in some Heaven, a point that Jesus himself taught is within.  When he reportedly ascended into Heaven, did he go up or within? 

There is a passage in my SACRED ANATOMY book where I contemplate this paradoxical dynamic.  The word “up” can be both dimensional and non-dimensional, or vibrational, as in moving up to a higher frequency.  The same is true of the word “down.” The biblical account of Jesus’s ascension indicates that he ascended into “the clouds of heaven.”

For example, I mentioned the “clouds of heaven.”  Jesus was seen by his disciples as ascending into the clouds above their heads. These clouds may have been the conditions in their own (transforming) collective consciousness through which the Lord of Love was making his royal exit from the earthly planes back into the higher planes of being from which he had come, and from which we all come—the “kingdom of heaven” which he had told them more than once “is within you.” This could also be the inference made by the two men in white apparel whom they reportedly saw standing with him and whom they heard say to them:  “Ye men of Galilee, why stand ye gazing up into heaven?  This same Jesus, which is taken up from you into heaven, shall so come in like manner as ye have seen him go into heaven.”  This may well be a classic case where the dimensional state simply did not comprehend the non-dimensional.  The darkness did not comprehend the light.  The lower planes simply cannot comprehend the higher.  But the one who stands in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks, the seven planes of being, in the fourth dimension has both physical and spiritual eyes and can see and comprehend the non-dimensional as clearly and easily as the dimensional.

I can appreciate Cynthia’s inference that Jesus descended down all the way—actually “into hell” according to the biblical text—in order to encompass and include all the dimensions of the vast spectrum of Creation in both heaven and earth, in the cycles of restoration, which he was very intentionally in the process of initiating.  In so doing he opened the gates to the Garden of Paradise here on Earth.  As Cynthia states so well in the next excerpt from this chapter, which I will publish in my next post:

It was not love stored up but love utterly poured out that opened the gates to the Kingdom of Heaven.

Until my next post, be love, be loved and be blessed.

Kenosis: The Path of Self-Emptying Love

IN THIS SERIES, I will explore the path of “Kenotic Love” as seen through the passionate heart and Christened mind of one of my favorite authors, Episcopal prelate Cynthia Bourgeault, who has rekindled in my heart an ecstatic love for the Man whom Mary Magdalene called “Rabboni”— and who knew her as his Beloved Companion — the romantic story about which I wrote a post back in August, 2018,  The Gospel of the Beloved Companion, which would be a timely read in this day of the rising Divine Feminine. Also my October post Fifth Way Love, A Romantic Path to Transformation.

In this post I will share excerpts from Cynthia’s book THE Wisdom Jesus — Transforming Heart and Mind.  This passage speaks to Jesus’s character and his message to humankind.  Christianity does not teach the Kenotic path that Jesus literally went down.

JUSUS  

There has always been a strong tendency among Christians to turn him into a priest —“our great high priest,” in the powerful metaphor of the New Testament Letter to the Hebrews. The image of Christos Pantokrator (“Lord of All Creation”) dressed in splendid sacramental robes has dominated the iconography of both Eastern and Western Christendom. But Jesus was not a priest. He had nothing to do with the temple hierarchy in Jeru­salem, and he kept a respectful distance from most ritual obser­vances. Nor was he a prophet in the usual sense of the term: a messenger sent to the people of Israel to warn them of impend­ing political catastrophe in an attempt to redirect their hearts to God.

Jesus was not interested in the political fate of Israel, nor would he accept the role of Messiah continuously being thrust upon him. His message was not one of repentance and return to the covenant. Rather, he stayed close to the perennial ground of wisdom: the transformation of human consciousness. He asked those timeless and deeply personal questions: What does it mean to die before you die? How do you go about losing your little life to find the bigger one? Is it possible to live on this planet with a generosity, abundance, fearlessness, and beauty that mir­ror Divine Being itself? These are the wisdom questions, and they are the entire field of Jesus’s concern. If you look for a comparable category today, the closest analogy would probably be the Sufi sheik who wields the threefold functions of wisdom teacher, spiritual elder, and channel for the direct transmission of blessing (baraka), in a fashion closely parallel to Jesus’s himself. The sheik is a distinctly Near Eastern category, and it probably best preserves the mantle that Jesus himself once wore. . . .

In order to go up one must first go all the way down.  For flesh to rise, spirit must first descend.  To ascend, one must fully incarnate.  I love how deeply Cynthia understands the kenotic path Jesus took.  

THE PATH OF KENOTIC LOVE

SO FAR WE have been looking at Jesus as typical of the wisdom tradition from which he comes. An enlightened master recognized by his followers as the Ihidaya, or the Single One, he teaches the art of metanoia, or “going into the larger mind.” Underlying all his teaching is a clarion call to a radical shift in consciousness: away from the alienation and polarization of the egoic operating system and into the unified field of divine abundance that can be perceived only through the heart. But how does one make this shift in consciousness? It’s one thing to admire it from a distance, but quite another to create it within oneself.

This is where spiritual praxis comes into play. “Praxis” means the path, the actual practice you follow to bring about the result that you’re yearning for. I think it’s fair to say that all of the great spiritual paths lead toward the same cen­ter—the emergence of this larger, non dual mind as the seat of personal consciousness—but they get there by different routes. While Jesus is typical of the wisdom tradition in his vision of what a whole and unified human being looks like, the route he lays out for getting there is very different from anything that had ever been seen on the planet up to that point. It is still radical in our own time and definitely the “road less taken” among the various schools of human transformation. I will fill in the pieces of this assertion as I go along, but my hunch is that a good many of the difficulties we sometimes run into trying to make our Christianity work stem from the fact that right from the start people missed how different Jesus’s approach really was. By trying to contain this new wine in old wineskins, they inadver­tently missed its own distinct flavor. In Jesus everything hangs together around a single center of gravity, and you need to know what this center is before you can sense the subtle but cohesive power of the path he is laying out.

What name might we give to this center? The apostle Paul suggests the word kenosis. In Greek the verb kenosein means “to let go,” or “to empty oneself,” and this is the word Paul chooses at the key moment in his celebrated teaching in Philippians 2:9-16 in order to describe what “the mind of Christ” is all about. Here is what he has to say:

Though his state was that of God, yet he did not deem equality with God something he should cling to.

Rather, he emptied himself, and assuming the state of a slave, he was born in human likeness.

He, being known as one of us,
humbled himself, obedient unto death,
even death on the cross.

For this, God raised him on high
and bestowed on him the name
which is above every other name.

So that at the name of Jesus,
every knee should bend in heaven and on earth and under the earth.

And so every tongue should proclaim
“Jesus Christ is Lord!” to God the Father’s glory.’

In this beautiful hymn, Paul recognizes that Jesus had only one “operational mode.” Everything he did, he did by self-emptying. He emptied himself and descended into human form.  And he emptied himself still further (“even unto death on the cross”) and fell through the bottom to return to the realms of dominion and glory. In whatever life circumstance, Jesus always responded with the same motion of self-emptying—or to put it another way, of the same motion of descent: going lower, taking the lower place, not the higher.

What makes this mode so interesting is that it’s almost com­pletely spiritually counterintuitive. For the vast majority of the world’s spiritual seekers, the way to God is “up.” Deeply embed­ded in our religious and spiritual traditions—and most likely in the human collective unconscious itself—is a kind of compass that tells us that the spiritual journey is an ascent, not a descent. Most students of the wisdom tradition consider this upward ori­entation to be one of the foundational attributes of sophia peren­nis itself, its origins no doubt archetypal.  While my own work with the wisdom Jesus has led me to disagree, it is hard to deny that the idea of spiritual ascent has been around for a long, long time. In biblical tradition, the image of the spiritual ladder goes all the way back to the headwaters of the Old Testament, with the story of Jacob’s dream of the ladder going up to heaven. It is probably five thousand years old. Christian monastic tra­dition returned to this image and developed it still further, as essentially the roadmap for the spiritual journey. The seventh century teacher John Climacus (“John of the Ladder”) even took his monastic name from this powerful image, and through his influential teachings it became the underlying philosophy of monastic practices such as lectio divina and psalmody.

Ascent mysticism was very much in the air in Jesus’s time as well. Earlier in this book I spoke of the Essene community, that apocalyptic Jewish sect whose visionary mysticism and ascetic practices were probably the most immediate formative influ­ence on Jesus. At the heart of the Essene understanding was a particular strain of spiritual yearning known as merkevah mysti­cism. Merkevah means “chariot,” an allusion to the Old Testa­ment story of the prophet Elijah being taken up to heaven in a chariot. This dramatic episode offered a vivid image of ascent to God, which the Essenes saw as applying both individually and for the entire people of Israel. “The end of the world was at hand,” and all eyes were gazing intently upward as Jesus took birth on
the earth.

To rise requires energy, in the spiritual realm as well as the physical one. And thus, the vast majority of the world’s spiritual technologies work on some variation of the principle of “conservation of energy.” Within each person there is seen to reside a sacred energy of being (sometimes known as the “chi,” or prana, the life force). This energy, in itself infinite, is measured out to each person in a finite amount and bestowed as our basic working capital when we arrive on this planet. The great spiritual tradi­tions have always taught that if we can contain this energy rather than letting it leach away—if we can concentrate it, develop it, make it more intentional and powerful—then this concentrated energy will allow us to climb that ladder of spiritual ascent. 

This ancient and universal strategy is really at the basis of all genuine asceticism (that is, asceticism in the service of conscious transformation, not as a means of penance or self-mortification). And there is good reason for this: the strategy works. Through the disciplines of prayer, meditation, fasting, and inner witness­ing the seeker learns how to purify and concentrate this inner reserve and to avoid squandering it in physical or emotional lust, petty reactions, and ego gratification. As self-mastery is gradu­ally attained, the spiritual energy concentrated within becomes strong enough and clear enough to sustain contact with those increasingly higher and more intense frequencies of the divine life, until at last one converges upon that unitive point. It’s a coherent and powerful path of inner transformation. But it’s not the only path.

There’s another route to center: a more reckless path and extravagant path, which is attained not through storing up that energy or concentrating the life force, but through throwing it all away-or giving it all away. The unitive point is reached not through the concentration of being but through the free squan­dering of it; not through acquisition or attainment but through self-emptying; not through “up” but through “down.” This is the way of kenosis, the revolutionary path that Jesus introduced into the consciousness of the West.

THE PRAYER OF ST. FRANCIS

I will leave you to ponder this original prayer of St. Francis, believed to be written by a French Franciscan and based on a little known admonition Francis wrote to his friars, according to James Twyman. 

Where there is charity and wisdom, there is neither fear nor ignorance.

Where there is patience and humility, there is neither anger nor disturbance.

Where there is poverty (simplicity) with gladness, there is neither covetousness nor greed.

Where there is quiet and meditation, there is neither concern nor wandering.

Where there is love of God to guard the house (cf. Lk. 11:21), there the enemy cannot gain entry.

Where there is mercy and discernment, there is neither excess nor severity.

I am deeply thankful to God for life, for health, for serenity of mind and peace of heart.  I am particularly thankful at this time of harvest when we celebrate Thanksgiving for the abundance of Mother Nature as she clothes the trees with new leaves in the wake of devastating hurricanes.  I am profoundly thankful for my companion in life, Bonnie Lee, and for all our family on the West Coast.  Thank you, Lord, for the gift of their presence in our life and in our world.  To my readers and blog followers, a heartful appreciation for traveling with me these past several rich years of sharing the meditations of my heart.  I always enjoy your responses.  Until my next post,

Be love. Be loved. Be Thankful

A Nuclear Community

“I have thrown fire on the world. Look. I watch it until it blazes.” —Jesus, The Gospel of Thomas

The “fire” that Jesus threw on the world was not wild fires like we’re experiencing along the West Coast.  It’s the all-consuming flame of love, the atomic power at the heart of creation.  In this series I will explore how the design of true community unfolds naturally and organically, fueled by atomic power released under the control of the stabilizing design and dynamics of the atom. Without further intro, I’ll dive right into it.

Our Judaeo-Christian model shaping social and family configurations, dictating human morality and ethics, and designing community structure and governance, needs to be revisited in the light and context of the Natural Laws governing all of Creation, from atom to galaxy and beyond.  In our close in relationships, for instance, monogamy is not a natural arrangement. Neither is marriage, for that matter. They have been necessary, however, as temporary control measures in humanity’s fallen state of consciousness—as are all man-made laws.  

Bible “thumpers” and scholars will surely take issue with me on this and argue that marriage was established and sanctified by the Creator from the beginning when He created Adam and Eve and declared that a woman shall cling to her husband and the two shall be as one.  However, we must remember that the Creation Story in Genesis was written by the patriarch Moses and not by an eyewitness to Creation in the Garden of Eden. . .and it was most likely redacted in order to support the seventh and tenth Commandments.  His was the job, after all, of governing these unruly tribes of Israel reveling in their newfound freedom after their release from bondage in Egypt.  Moses’s Ten Commandments gave him the leverage and divine authority he needed to reign in and cultivate the Nation of Israel into a civilized “Chosen People.” That’s my speculative opinion anyway, for whatever it’s worth. 

In a restored state of consciousness, a new model and paradigm of governance by Love and the Truth of Life come into play.  As the Master Jesus told those who challenged him on the issue of divorcing and remarrying,

For in the resurrection they neither marry, nor are given in marriage, but are as the angels of God in heaven. 

He was speaking to a somewhat elevated level of human consciousness, compared to that of the Israelites of old, attempting to elevate it even further by extending an invitation to humanity to rise up, “come up hither,” and enter the Kingdom of Heaven, a spiritual level of consciousness, just above the mental and physical levels—an invitation few at that time accepted.  Nevertheless, through His own victorious life, He established the Way by which resurrection and ascension would be possible for the entire Body of Humanity after his resurrection from the tomb and his eventual ascension from this earthly plane back into Heaven.

As human consciousness rises to higher and higher levels, and human beings are increasingly governed by Spirit from within, rather than by man-made laws—laws that the Master himself admonished us not to make beyond the two Great Commandments He had given—marriage ceases to be necessary.

This is already a dawning reality in many sectors of society, even within the Judaeo-Christian world.  Couples are coming together as “partners” in life.  Angels may not marry but I believe we do come in inseparable pairs, or as “soul mates,” most often with only one incarnating leaving the other to provide guardianship and heavenly connection and support.

Conscious awareness of our angelic nature has already dawned in the experience of a growing number of awakened souls who are conscious of their presence in heaven on earth—the kingdom of Heaven that is at hand and all around us.  Obviously, we are not even close to a collective transformation and transmutation of the mass consciousness of humanity.  However, we are on our way, and a new Golden Age awaits us. This I know.

The Nuclear World of Controlled Power

The atom is a micro model of right relationships in true community.  In it is manifest the working dynamic of the One Law, simply stated by Lloyd A. Meeker (Uranda) (1907-1954) as “Positive Action, Negative Reaction or Response.” Walter Russell called it “The Law of One.” As I consider these two nomenclatures, I see how compliance with the One Law would bring about Oneness in the human family as “one Nation under God.” 

Consider what we now know about the structure and dynamic operation of this fundamental building block of Creation.  At the center of the atom dwell one or more positively charged Protons and one or more neutral particles called Neutrons.  Orbiting around this central hub of focused power are a number of Electrons carrying a negative charge.  Looming behind this nuclear structure lies a potential of awesome power held in check by the integrity and stability of the tiny atom.  We know this by reason of our experience destroying that integrity and releasing that awesome power to destructive ends.

As I pondered this model at three o’clock yesterday morning, awakened by a pressing urgency to explore it further and perhaps do a blog series on it, I am finding much food for meditation as I write.  It’s a huge and complex consideration.  It may not be relevant to all that’s going on in our world today with the West Coast ablaze and smothered in smoke, and the Southern Gulf States ravaged by hurricanes, including our home town in Southwest Louisiana, not to mention the human tragedies occurring globally in war-torn nations, and the divisive political climate here in the US, my thoughts today soar in the New Heaven and engage in the imaging of tomorrow and the New Earth already being born in and through the hearts, minds and innovative activities of thousands around the globe.  So, I ask you my readers to bear with me as I dream of a new world for tomorrow in the midst of a crumbling and burning old world of today.  There’s a legendary phoenix in the ashes.

I will continue in this exploration in my next post and leave you with this provocative saying of the Master Jesus:

“Let those who seek, continue seeking until they find. And when they find, they will become troubled. And when they become troubled, they will be astonished, and will reign over all. [And after they have reigned they will rest.]” –Jesus, The Lost Gospel of Thomas

Until my next post of this new series,

Be love. Be loved.
