Blessed is one who existed before coming into being. (Jesus, The Gospel of Thomas)
I have often pondered the profound mystery of incarnation: how Being enters the Human form to oversee the operation of all its intricacies of function, growth, repair, movement, thinking, speaking, etc? Where is our portal of entrance, the “rainbow bridge” the Ancients speak of across which angels come and go between heaven and earth?
Perhaps a more profound question would be: Am I inside my body, or is my body inside of me, much like the Earth lives inside of a magnetic field of energy?
These musings invariably led me to the writing of SACRED ANATOMY–where spirit and flesh dance in the fires of creation. In this post I will share another excerpt from my chapter on the Pineal Body.
My last post ended with a reference to the alchemy taking place in the human cranium and these words of Uranda:
When the Ancients spoke of that alchemy by which base metals were transformed into gold, they were expressing the Truth that by the Alchemy of Love-Spirit the base substances of the fleshly body are TRANSMUTED INTO THE GOLD OF SOUL, the MASTER-SELF WITHIN THEE. (Steps To Mastership)
This sacred alchemy also manifests as sweet nectar. One can taste it while in a state of ecstasy. Intense currents of love move through this gateway in rhythmic pulsations raining down sweet manna onto the palate. After such ecstatic experiences, one may feel so satiated that food no longer seems appealing, as something more nourishing than food fills the palate and nostrils with the delicate taste and aroma of ambrosia. Is this the “hidden manna” John writes about in Revelation?
To him that overcometh will I give to eat of the hidden manna and will give him a white stone, and in the stone a new name written, which no man knoweth saving he that receiveth it. (Rev. 2:17)
Uranda’s comments bear inclusion here as well:
The “hidden manna” is within thee, even the Fruit of the Tree of Life which is within thee. The “white stone” is the renewed Pineal Gland which allows the Master Self full control of all activities, and he who attains thereto shall KNOW his “new name”. . . . That name which may be revealed to thee by others may have much Spiritual significance, but it is not thy ‘new name’. Unless thy ‘new name’ is thine own expression of THYSELF, it is not thy true Spiritual Name.
We had a name, an identity, before we were born and christened. We “existed before coming into being.” We are blessed in remembering who we are.
A White Stone
Inside the cranium there is much activity relating to light and sound. It has been discovered, for example, that within the Pineal is a tiny crystal “. . . of sabulous (gritty) matter composed of phosphate and carbonate of lime, phosphate of magnesium and ammonia [afloat in] a transparent viscid fluid.” This tiny white crystal is reportedly radiant with light energy for several minutes after death. This discovery carries considerable spiritual significance seeing as how it has also been discovered that cells give off a flash of light as a means of communicating as well as when they die.
In his monumental work, Vibrational Medicine For The 21st Century, renown definitive authority on energetic medicine Dr. Richard Gerber describes what is being called today the “vibrational-medicine model” of the human body as possessing a more subtle communication system than that of the brain and nervous system wherein light is the medium for messages between the cells of the body:
Most information that the organs receive is in the form of chemical messages that help to regulate the function of each organ within the context of the body’s daily needs. But the organs and the cells making up each organ also communicate with each other using nonchemical forms of information-carrying messengers.
Light and Sound Technology
For instance, we now know that the cells of the body actually emit weak pulses of light. Those weak cellular light pulses seem to be part of a light-based communication system that helps to coordinate the actions of the cells within each organ. The pulses of light emitted by cells are just one of the many different informational codes the human body and its individual cells use to regulate the function of organs on a day-to-day and moment-to-moment basis. Our cells communicate through the coded messages carried by hormones and biochemicals, as well as through electrical signals (such as those carried by the nerves of the body), and also through weak light signals. The cells of the body appear to have their own inherent intelligence that allows them to understand and use this coded information in its many forms in order to maintain the body in a state of health.
It is clearly evident that light plays a central role in the generation of life and in the maintenance of function and coordination within the body, and that the Pineal, nestled in the center of the brain and connected to the corpus quadrigemina—a part of the brain which relays light and sound frequencies and vibrations from the outside world to this inner most sanctum—is the appointed place of rendezvous between the light of the sun coming into the body through the eyes and the light of love emanating from the angel incarnate. For here in this inner sound and light chamber are blended the seven-dimensional vibration of light, sent to the pineal by the hypothalamus with the seven-dimensional vibration of love. The outer and the inner, earth and heaven, are unified as one.
The fact of the presence of retinal tissue in the body of the Pineal may well account for the pulsating colors some frequently see while the eyes are closed during meditation, even when they are open at times. The light of love enters the temple through the violet colored lens of the Pineal Body. This photo-receptor is sensitive to the radiation of the light of love entering it from within and pouring through it into the body temple. As this same light of love radiates outward through the eyes, it stimulates the rods and cones which then translate it into respective colors in the brain. One may see colors of red, brown, yellow, green, blue and deep purple contracting and expanding around a sharp focus of violet light. At times one may sense that heaven’s portal will open up and allow one to peer right into the realms of light. As the pulsations stimulate the olfactory bulb, the taste as of sweet nectar fills the mouth raining down like pulsing showers of honey dew.
Is this tiny gland perhaps the vibrational receiver and transmitter for communication between God and Man, the origin of the “inner voice” of intuition. . . . Here surely is where the Creative Word is spoken by the angel incarnate, in concert with the LORD God: “Let there be Light!” And there is light, the light that is the life of Man sent forth into the body temple by way of crystal emissaries of light to bring the perfect patterns of design and firm control of life to each and every tissue cell, organ, gland and system. In form and in function here is the very real and practical way by which the Word of Creation is spoken by the angel incarnate in his or her temple to maintain and re-create the body temple, as well as one’s world.
Transmutation of Flesh
The Pineal, then, may be said to provide a physical point for the radiant focus of the Spirit of Love, not only in these temples but in this world. As a sacred gateway, it gives entrance to highly refined spiritual essences that purify and refine the courser substances that sometimes enter the heart—our sacred heart, because our heart is truly sacred to the angel incarnate. It is a crucible for intensifying love’s regenerating power that makes all things new. It is in our hearts that we know love and in that knowing experience a sense of oneness with the ALL.
As we learn how to keep our hearts open, yet contained and governed by love, so as to conserve and preserve its contents of golden substance, the transforming power of love brings about transmutation, thereby fulfilling its purpose and perfect plan for salvation in our body temples and in the world. For clearly the purpose of the body temple is the incarnation of angels on Earth. The Pineal Body plays a key role in transmuting the physical substance of human flesh into spiritualized flesh for the angel’s ethereal body in this world.
For that transmutation to occur an arc of fire is needed. That arc is present between the positive centers generated by spirit via the seven endocrine glands and their corresponding negative Chakra centers. It is sufficiently hot in the inner sanctum of the brain, where the Pineal and Pituitary glands interact in highly-charged currents of spiritual energy, to transmute living flesh.
Uranda speaks of this so very beautifully in his Steps To Mastership, as well as in his book The Triune Ray. The transforming spirit of love creates the currents of life that move through our body temples by way of the working of the One Law of positive radiation and negative response, which attracts atoms into the transforming fire and brings them into a state of union with the Spirit of Love. This positive radiation emanates from the seventh level embodied by the pineal gland at the apex point in the physical body where the Arc of Life is created that runs the affairs of the Body Temple. That arc is initially established between these first two seals at the seventh and sixth levels. The Pituitary gland, with its masculine and feminine lobes, provides the initial pattern of response and yielded openness to the radiant ray of light emanating through the pineal gland. All that unfolds hereafter in the physical body relates to the administration and governance of this primal current of life created and sent forth as a River of Life into the garden of the Temple of the Living God, and the returning ascending cycle that lifts atomic substance up into the body temple from out of the kingdoms of this world via the digestive system.
Portal of Entrance and Exit
As the caption of this post indicates, the pineal gland provides a portal for our entrance into this world, as well as our exit, as demonstrated in stories of near-death experiences where the soul is said to leave the body and pass through a tunnel that leads upward toward a bright light. This “tunnel” is the “silver cord,” spoken of in the Old Testament of the Bible, that connects spirit with the body:
“Remember now thy creator in the days of thy youth, while the evil days come not, nor the years draw nigh, when thou shalt say I have no pleasure in them. . . . Or ever the silver cord be loosed, and the golden bowl be broken. . . . Then shall the dust return to the earth as it was: and the spirit shall return unto God who gave it. . . .”
This passage in chapter twelve of Ecclesiastes gives graphic description of the ageing and passing of the physical form and the liberation of the spirit from its carnal limitations and return to its Creator. The message is to remember who we are while we are young and before our memory begins to fade in old age, and the “golden bowl” of the pineal gland begins to disintegrate and fail to work its magic of alchemy.
The silver cord, generated by spirit, connects to the pineal gland up until the soul makes its transition and the angel releases the physical body back to the elemental world of ash from which it was created.
I will continue with this consideration of the spiritual significance of the pineal gland in my next post. Until then,
Be love. Be loved.
