The Crown Portal to The Temple of Light

 

OVER THE LAST SEVERAL DAYS I’ve been dipping down into the bottomless pit of knowledge to explore the current activities in the world of medicine. Having spent more than half of my life in the healthcare field, I have a lingering sense of responsibility to help out friends who now look to me for guidance in these troubling pandemic times.  I assure you, the pit of knowledge is truly bottomless, filled with all sorts of conflicting opinions and tons of data one could spend hours and more studying and breaking down for easy assimilation and comprehension, a rather exhausting and futile undertaking . . . most of the time . . . and not always fruitless.

I waded through filthy waters full of deceit, lies, conspiracy, manipulation, censure, hype of all sorts, and sheer greed and avarice—though some of the water was clearer containing helpful information, insight and wisdom.

As I sit down to complete this week’s blog post, I feel a little used up mentally having just labored through several scientific interviews and medical news releases, and emerged from conversational interchanges on social media that deteriorated into argument and ridicule.  I had to delete the entire conversation in order to cut short the unravelling thread.  People are confused and fearful for their health and lives.

Yet this is the world into which we have chosen to incarnate and offer our services, a world mixed with the beautiful along with the ugly.  I embrace it all with love, forgiveness and compassion even as I put it out of mind now and return my attention to the place where I live and to which my soul longs to fully ascend.  Thank you for listening to my process. Now to my post.

◊ ♦ ◊ 

IN MY LAST POST, THE GREAT TREE, I shared a passage from the gospel of Mary Magdalene, or Miryam as her Master Jeshua called her.  She was his Beloved Companion, after all, and he loved her more than he loved any of his other disciples, for which they resented and envied her, and questioned him.  His answer was “Why can I love her more than I love you?”  It was because she returned his unconditional love sevenfold, understood and kept his teachings more than they did.  I think we all tend to love most those who understand us and love us unconditionally.

Because of her love for Jeshua, Miryam ascended to the level of “Apostle of apostles” and the “One who knew the All.”  Her soul ascended to the Crown at the Eighth Bough of the Great Tree and was utterly consumed by Spirit, represented and embodied by a woman clothed with the sun who dwells in this realm of eternal life. Miryam became the sun, and in her “responsive radiance” spent the remainder of her earthly journey in silence, because it was in the silence that her Master had spoken to her and revealed the truths inherent in the Great Tree. What a profound experience and sharing of her intimate relationship with Jeshua, her beloved Lord and Master.

THE TEMPLE OF LIGHT

I am profoundly and deeply moved, because I am very much aware of this Great Tree in my own body temple, and the presence of Spirit at the Crown, which Uranda described and designated “The Temple of Light,” and to which he assigned seven steps of ascent. 

Now, I’ve always thought of the seventh step, Love, as the destination of the ascent.  However, Love is a step, the final step, leading to the Temple of Light, the implication being that the destination of the seven steps is the eighth landing, so-to-speak, above the seventh step. From this step one may ascend, as Miryam did, to the “Eighth Bough,” and in so doing enter the Temple of Light.  When one does enter his or her Temple of Light, one is filled with the radiance of the Spirit, consumed by the Sun and embraced by the Woman clothed by the Sun: the Great Mother. So much profound symbolism in these passages.

I would like to share a grand perspective of our total Humanity and whole holy Being, followed by something very personal about my experience of Attunement with Love, a gift from God given to the world through Uranda.  I first spoke of this in my book SACRED ANATOMY sixteen years ago, so this isn’t the first time I share it.

◊  ♦ ◊

From SACRED ANATOMY:

      I mentioned life’s radiance as emanating from a point “within.”  We commonly think of our spirit as being within us, implying that I am inside my body.  But my experience has actually been that my body is inside me, in much the same way as the Earth, a relatively small deposit of cosmic rock with a molten core, is situated at the center of a vast magnetosphere.  This magnetosphere is known to flare outward and away from the Sun, like giant wings upon which our planet soars against the powerful and unrelenting currents of Solar Wind, eternally and irresistibly drawn toward its origin in the Sun but never quite able to come any closer to it.  Rather, the Sun comes to the Earth and to all the planets, engulfing them in its radiant light and solar winds.  In fact, if we take into consideration the entire outreach of the Sun’s rays, the planets are all contained within the Sun completely engulfed in its colossal magnetic force field as condensed particles of solar plasma.

  (Earth is surrounded by a system of magnetic fields, called the magnetosphere. The magnetosphere shields our home planet from harmful solar and cosmic particle radiation, but it can change shape in response to incoming space weather from the Sun.)  

This is also true of each one of us.   Our physical bodies have been described as “frozen light,” and are but a condensation of about a teaspoon of mineral ash expanded by air and water at the center of a rather large biosphere, which is said to extend some forty feet above, below and all around the physical body.   That biosphere is but the lower half of a larger force-field, symbolized by the figure 8.  The top half represents the invisible domain of spirit in the heaven and the lower represents the visible reflection in the earth of the perfect design of man in the heaven.  The two are joined together manifesting the oneness of heaven and earth.  This joining together may also be seen as a “double ring” marriage between the Beloved Lord or Lady with his or her triune human capacity for incarnation, which only death of the body can part them.

The Torus Energy Biosphere

      The upper spiritual half continually radiates the love of the Beloved to and through the lower physical half on the right side and draws upon it for response to the radiation up through the left side, ever lifting the body upward and keeping it upright and mobile.  Your body does not stand up solely on its feet.  It is, rather, suspended by a “skyhook” on a silver chord of pneumaplasm that connects it with the angel who dwells in the heavenly realm of spirit, the angel I am and we each one are. There is a compulsion in physical flesh to be drawn upward and inward toward the positive center of Being, just as the earth and all the planets are drawn toward the sun. I sense this focal point connecting the upper half with the lower to be located just above the head.

      Access to this point is through the heart, the fourth level of our sacred anatomy connecting the three above and the three below.  We move in the direction of our heart’s response. When the heart ponders the presence of the Beloved within long and longingly, sending unceasing, rich and passionate currents of love response upward to this One I AM, the body itself begins to feel the ebb and flow of these ascending and descending currents of energy.

      Perhaps I can attempt to describe the feeling in my heart toward this focal point of radiance above my head—of which I have become keenly aware during meditation and “self-attunement” as a spiritual practice—as clearly one of  being drawn and repelled at the same time. 

      On several occasions I have had the urge to ascend upward and somehow nestle inside the irresistibly warm and enfolding orb of this light, but could never seem to come any closer to it. 

Then, on one occasion, while it seemed as if I was finally about to disappear into this point of no apparent magnitude but definite position—where my heart had already ascended in utter ecstasy—this orb of condensed light suddenly descended and dispersed itself into and through my outer form, as a mighty rush of wind, filling my whole body both within and round about with light.

The MerKaBa

(This is the actual process and dynamic of ascension: the descension and full incarnation of the angel into the body temple, an experience that seems like an ascension. It is actually the descent of spirit down into the body temple transmuting it into a temple of light, symbolized by the six-pointed Star of David, also known as the MerKaBa.) 

The sheer rush of it caused my vocal chords to explode with the most awesomely haunting and penetrating sound I have ever heard, let along sung, and yet my lungs were not even engaged in this forceful release of whatever it was—the wind of spirit, I suppose.  It came from above my head as a real, palpable substance, and then seemingly exploded its vibrational essences through my vocal chords, giving them little if any choice but to release this sacred, transforming and transmuting sacred sound.

      In the instant this sound was released my whole outer being seemed to suddenly shift to a higher vibratory level and became completely engulfed inside a radiant sphere of substance that seemed to be made of pure light. I found myself suddenly in another dimension as though my body had ascended to the next vibratory level above the one in which we now function in these earth bodies. The strangest thing about this was that it seemed as though this sphere had been there all along and I had not noticed it. I had known about it but I had not experienced it until that moment when it revealed itself as this vibrational shift occurred and the atmosphere around my body became filled with the substance of Love, intensifying the force field. Then I became aware of it, suspended, as my body was, inside of it.  It seemed as though my feet were not touching the ground and I had the most powerful déja vu experience of my entire life. “This is where I belong,” I recall being assured in my heart. “This is Home.  This is who I am, this magnificent and powerful spirit enveloping and animating this human form.”  In the wake of that ecstatic moment was a deafening silence. 

      I did not want to leave that silent moment.  And I never shall leave it in consciousness for as long as I shall live, and I return to it often. I have had a couple of similar experiences since then—significantly enough while singing solo during worship services and therein focusing a creative current—but never quite as powerful as this first time. 

      I later came to understand that the first experience was that of a vibrational dam of resistance in my heart breaking, releasing a rush of current. After that initial surge of release, the experience became one of a natural and easy flow of spirit.  I recall how I had a challenge keeping my feet on the floor as I began to sing.  I had to deliberately look into the eyes of someone in the gathering—(another angel of sound)—in order to stay grounded.  I also recall feeling that this was the easiest and most natural experience I had ever known.  

      This focal point of connection truly is, without a doubt in my mind and heart, our ordained place to live, and we must—we can and we will—all return to it one day.  It is definitely available for experience when the conditions are just right, and therein is the key.  We must be willing to create, or occasion, the right conditions in which this magical alchemy of ascension may occur, which only the spirit and substance of love can provide sent upward in utter abandon to one’s Lord.

      The spiritual practice of Attunement is one way of creating such space. This is the source of inspiration behind this writing.  This is the work, I believe, we have all come here to do—our Father’s business—and it will not be complete until we return to this vibrational place together as One Body of many members in agreement and accord with the One Archangelic Spirit whose body it is.

THE GREAT TREE

As my soul moved upward, I realized that I could no longer hear the voice of the world, as all had become as silence.” — Miryam, from The Gospel of the Beloved Companion¹

In the Gospel of the Beloved Companion, Miryam (Mary Magdalene), in the mournful wake of their Master’s ignominious crucifixion, comforts a gathering of his disciples and shares with them what, in the author’s opinion, is one of the most profound teachings of this entire Gospel.   

MY MASTER SPOKE THUS TO ME.  HE SAID, “MIRYAM, BLESSED ARE YOU WHO CAME INTO BEING BEFORE COMING INTO BEING, AND WH0SE EYES ARE SET UPON THE KINGDOM, WHO FROM THE BEGINNING HAS UNDERSTOOD AND FOLLOWED MY TEACHINGS. ONLY FROM THE TRUTH I TELL YOU, THERE IS A GREAT TREE WITHIN YOU THAT DOES NOT CHANGE, SUMMER OR WINTER, AND ITS LEAVES DO NOT FALL. WHOSOEVER LISTENS TO MY WORDS AND ASCENDS TO ITS CROWN WILL NOT TASTE DEATH, BUT KNOW THE TRUTH OF ETERNAL LIFE.”

THEN HE SHOWED ME A VISI0N IN WHICH I SAW A GREAT TREE THAT SEEMED TO REACH UNTO THE HEAVENS, AND AS I SAW THESE THINGS, HE SAID, “THE ROOTS OF THIS TREE ARE IN THE EARTH, WHICH IS YOUR BODY. THE TRUNK EXTENDS UPWARD THROUGH THE FIVE REGIONS OF HUMANITY TO THE CROWN, WHICH IS THE KINGDOM OF THE SPIRIT. 

“THERE ARE EIGHT BOUGHS UPON THIS TREE AND EACH BOUGH BEARS ITS OWN FRUIT, WHICH YOU MUST EAT IN ALL FULLNESS. AS THE FRUIT OF THE TREE IN THE GARDEN CAUSED ADAM AND CHAV’VAH TO FALL INTO DARKNESS, SO THIS FRUIT WILL GRANT TO YOU THE LIGHT OF THE SPIRIT THAT IS ETERNAL LIFE. BETWEEN EACH BOUGH IS A GATE AND A GUARDIAN WHO CHALLENGES THE UNWORTHY WHO TRY TO PASS.

“THE LEAVES AT THE BOTTOM OF THE TREE ARE THICK AND PLENTIFUL, S0 NO LIGHT PENETRATE5 TO ILLUMINATE THE WAY.  BUT FEAR NOT, FOR I AM THE WAY AND THE LIGHT, AND I TELL YOU THAT, AS ONE ASCENDS THE TREE, THE LEAVES THAT BLOCK ONE FROM THE LIGHT ARE FEWER, SO IT IS POSSIBLE TO SEE ALL MORE CLEARLY.  THOSE WHO SEEK TO ASCEND MUST FREE THEMSELVES OF THE WORLD. IF YOU DO NOT FREE YOURSELF FROM THE WORLD, YOU WILL DIE IN THE DARNESS THAT IS THE ROOT OF THE TREE. BUT IF YOU FREE YOURSELF, YOU WILL RISE AND REACH THE LIGHT THAT IS ETERNAL LIFE.”

AND AS HE SAID THESE THINGS, I FELT MY SOUL ASCEND AND SAW THE FIRST BOUGH THAT BEARS THE FRUIT OF LOVE AND COMPASSION, THE FOUNDATION OF ALL THINGS. AND I KNEW THAT BEFORE YOU CAN EAT OF THIS FRUIT AND GAIN ITS NOURISHMENT, YOU MUST BE FREE OF ALL JUDGMENT AND WRATH.  WHEN YOU HAVE FREED YOURSELF OF THESE BURDENS, YOU MUST EAT OF THE FRUIT AND SO GAIN THE LOVE AND COMPASSION THAT WILL ALLOW YOU TO PASS THE FIRST OF SEVEN GUARDIANS. AND I HEARD THE VOICE OF THE LORD OF WRATH CALLING TO ME, BUT I DENIED HIM AND HE HAD NO PART IN ME.  

 I SAW MY SOUL ASCENT AGAIN AND HE SHOWED ME THE SECOND GREAT BOUGH WEIGHED DOWN WITH THE FRUIT OF WISDOM AND UNDERSTANDING.  AND I SAW THAT BEFORE YOU CAN TASTE OF ITS BOUNTY, YOU MUST BE FREE OF ALL IGNORANCE AND INTOLERANCE. ONLY THEN CAN YOU EAT OF THE FRUIT AND SO PASS UPWARD UNHINDERED THROUGH THE SECOND OF THE SEVEN GATES.  AND I HEARD THE VOICE OF IGNORANCE CALL TO ME, BUT I KNEW HIM NOT, AND SO MY SOUL DID THUS UNCHALLENGED.  

THEN MY MASTER SHOWED ME THE THIRD GREAT BOUGH, WHICH BEARS THE FRUIT OF HONOR AND HUMILITY.  ONLY WHEN FREE OF ALL DUPLICITY AND ARROGANCE MAY YOU PARTAKE OF ITS NOURISHMENT.  AND ARROGANCE CALLED TO ME, SAYING, “YOU ARE NOT WORTHY, GO BACK.” BUT MY SOUL WAS DEAF TO HIM, AND SO MOVED ONWARD AND UPWARD INTO INCREASING LIGHT.

AND THEN THERE CAME THE FOURTH BOUGH, BLOSSOMING WITH THE FRUIT OF STRENGTH AND COURAGE. AND I HEARD HIM TELL ME THAT TO EAT OF THIS FRUIT, YOU MUST HAVE FREED YOURSELF FROM THE WEAKNESS OF THE FLESH AND CONFRONTED AND CONQUERED THE ILLUSION OF YOUR FEARS.  AND THE MASTER OF THE WORLD STOOD BEFORE ME AND CLAIMED ME AS HIS OWN. BUT I DENIED HIM AND HE HAD NO PART OF ME.

ONLY THEN, MY MASTER TOLD ME, WHEN YOU HAVE REJECTED THE DECEIVER, CAN YOU PASS THROUGH THE HARDEST GATE OF ALL, TO ATTAIN THE FIFTH BOUGH AND THE FRUIT OF CLARITY AND TRUTH. ONLY THEN WILL YOU KNOW THE CLARITY AND TRUTH OF YOUR SOUL AND, KNOWING YOURSELF FOR THE FIRST TIME, UNDERSTAND THAT YOU ARE A CHILD OF THE LIVING SPIRIT.  AND AS MY SOUL MOVED UPWARD, I REALIZED THAT I COULD NO LONCER HEAR THE VOICE OF THE WORLD, AS ALL HAD BECOME AS SILENCE.

THEN IN THE LIGHT ABOVE, I SAW THE SIXTH BOUGH, THE ONE THAT BORE THE FRUIT OF POWER AND HEALING.  MY MASTER TOLD ME THAT WHEN YOU TRULY HAVE EATEN OF THE FRUIT OF THE CLARITY AND TRUTH OF YOURSELF, THEN COULD YOU PARTAKE OF THE FRUIT OF POWER AND HEALINC; THE POWER TO HEAL YOUR OWN SOUL AND THEREBY MAKE IT READY TO ASCEND TO THE SEVENTH BOUGH, WHERE IT WILL BE FILLED BY THE FRUITS OF LIGHT AND GOODNESS.

AND I SAW MY S0UL, NOW FREE OF ALL DARKNESS, A5CEND AGAIN TO BE FILLED WITH THE LIGHT AND G00DNE55 THAT IS THE 5PIRIT.  AND I WAS FILLED WITH A FIERCE JOY AS MY S0UL TURNED TO FIRE AND FLEW UPWARDS IN THE FLAMES FROM WHENCE MY MASTER 5HOWED ME THE EIGHTH AND FINAL BOUGH, UPON WHICH BURNED THE FRUIT OF THE GRACE AND BEAUTY OF THE SPIRIT.

AND I FELT MY S0UL AND ALL THAT I COULD SEE DISSOLVE AND VANISH IN A BRILLIANT LIGHT IN A LIKENESS UNTO THE SUN. AND IN THE LIGHT, I BEHELD A WOMAN OF EXTRAORDINARY BEAUTY, CLOTHED IN GARMENTS OF BRILLIANT WHITE.  THE FIGURE EXTENDED ITS ARMS, AND I FELT MY SOUL DRAWN INTO ITS EMBRACE, AND IN THAT MOMENT I WAS FREE FROM THE WORLD, AND I REALIZED THAT THE FETTER OF FORGETFULNESS WAS TEMPORARY. FROM NOW ON, I SHALL REST THROUGH THE COURSE OF THE TIME OF THE AGE IN SILENCE. 

AND THEN, AS IF FROM A GREAT DISTANCE, I HEARD THE VOICE OF MY MASTER TELL ME, “MIRYAM, WHOM I HAVE CALLED THE MIGDALAH, NOW YOU HAVE SEEN THE ALL, AND HAVE KNOWN THE TRUTH OF YOURSELF, THE TRUTH THAT IS I AM.  NOW YOU HAVE BECOME THE COMPLETION OF COMPLETIONS,” AND THUS THE VISION ENDED.

 THIS IS WHAT MY MASTER HAS TOLD AND SHOWN ME.  AND ONLY FROM THE TRUTH I TELL YOU, THAT ALL THAT I HAVE REVEALED TO YOU IS TRUE.

WHEN THE MIGDALAH HAD TOLD OF ALL THAT YESHUA HAD SAID AND DONE, SHE FELL SILENT, SINCE IT WAS IN THAT SILENCE THAT YESHUA HAD SPOKEN WITH HER AND REVEALED THESE TRUTHS.

This account of Mary Magdalene’s all-consuming ascent up to the crown of this “Great Tree” isn’t the only time in the scriptures where a feminine entity is mentioned in an ecstatic vision or encounter with the Spirit.  John in Revelation (12:1-4) describes a vision he was given of a woman in heaven: 

And there appeared a great wonder in heaven: a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars: And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered.  And there appeared another wonder in heaven; and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads and ten horns, and seven crowns upon his heads. . . .  And the dragon stood before the woman which was ready to be delivered, for to devour her child as soon as it was born. . . .” 

Shortly after this, the dragon and “accuser of our brethren” is cast out of heaven and down to the earth having “great wrath” knowing that he “hath but a short time to live.”  The woman fled to the wilderness where she gave birth to her “man child” which was “caught up unto God.” This entire chapter is filled with metaphors and prophecy, a thrill of the spirit to read.

This child is the Christ Spirit of Love, which the dragon of the human mind out from under the dominion of God ever seeks to negate and prevent from being born through the hearts of men and women, knowing that love casts out fear, the means of controlling the masses. Fearless children are not so inhibited by shame and judgment, but let their lights shine openly, and without being told or taught, showing that the joyful expression of the spirit of love—of kindness, of joy and generosity—are natural to us all. 

Seven Steps to the Temple of Light

Lloyd Arthur Meeker (Uranda) gave us Seven Steps to the Temple of Light.  They are Patience, Tranquility, Realization, Assurance, Radiance, Wisdom and Love.  He expands on their gifts and characteristics in a little booklet by the same name composed as a daily meditation and practice during a seven-day week for seven weeks, a meditative practice for anyone seeking a spiritual path to the realization of their own authentic Self in true identity.  (I have 3 copies I would love to give to someone.) 

As a synopsis: through Patience we let our life unfold naturally without trying to push the River, and we are content to let the evolution of physical forms take their own measured time.  This relaxed condition in our physical body fosters a Tranquility in the mind, allowing for a sharp focus of singular direction and purposeful action with unwavering resolve and determination.  This singleness of mind lends power to our outer actions that can easily bring about a Realization of our creative endeavors, as well as facilitate our soul’s ascent to the higher levels. 

The fourth step is Assurance and clarification of our heart substance that allow us to know for certain our angelic presence in the world.  Being aware of our divine nature and fixing our polarity in Spirit and its expression, the Radiance and vitality of Life shines through our outer being, bringing with it a sense of the fitness of things, the gift of Wisdom at the sixth level.  The seventh and final step is simply to enter our Temple of Light, and let our soul be taken up into oneness with and consummation by the Spirit, who dwells in the eighth level, the level of the silent octave.  Here we are invited and beckoned to abide for the remainder of our life’s earthly sojourn, letting love radiate without concern for results. 

While our souls ascend up into our temples of light by these seven steps to meet and fuse with the Holy Spirit at the Crown above—which is the Divine Feminine, Mother God—our angelic being incarnates and descends from above, down, inside and out into radiant expression of Light Divine, which is the Divine Masculine, Father God, facilitated by the seven sacred energy-transforming centers of our endocrine system, which is comprised of seven hormone-secreting glands.  These glands provide our high-frequency angelic being alchemical steps for descending energetically out of the invisible realm of Heaven and into the lower-frequency visible and material realm of Earth.  This defines our whole purpose for leaving the realms of Light and incarnating into the darker realms of physical life: to enlighten the world with our love and assist in bringing forth creation out of the darkness of the womb and into the light of a new day—judgement, shame and accusation notwithstanding.  

The Master Jesus reminded us of this purpose when he said “Let your light so shine that men may see your good works and glorify your Father which is in Heaven.” Let the will of the One in Heaven be done on Earth.  With this command, I leave you to meditate upon Miryam’s account of her encounter with “Jeshua” and the ascent of her soul to the crown of the Great Tree where it was consumed by the fire of the Spirit of Love. 

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

Be love. Be loved.

Ascension Harmonics

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

(Use earphones for full spectrum sound resonance)

ARE WE ASCENDING YET ? 

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

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

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

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

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

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

LET LOVE DO THE WORK

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

THE HEART-BRAIN CONNECTION

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

Your Heart's Electromagnetic Field
      Heart’s Electromagnetic Field

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

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

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

When I consider thy heavens, the work of thy fingers, the moon and stars, which thou hast ordained; What is man, that thou art mindful of him? And the son of man, that thou visitest him? For thou hast made him a little lower than the angel, and hast crowned him with glory and honour. (Psalm 8:3-5)

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

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

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

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

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

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

THE PHYSIOLOGY OF ASCENSION

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

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

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

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

Steps of Ascent 5: The Way of the Master

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

◊♦◊

IN MY PREVIOUS POST I spoke of a restoration process underway since the Fall, so far made in two approaches.  The first one was initiated with Abraham and the nation of Israel. The second approach, from the physical plane as was the first, was initiated with King Solomon.  Both failed to bring mankind back into the Garden state and alignment with the governance of the Kingdom of Heaven. 

      The third and forth approaches were from the mental and spiritual planes respectively and was initiated by the Master Jesus Christ, the incarnate Lord of Love.  Both of these approaches failed as well due to the hardness of men’s hearts and failure to comprehend his dual command to love the Lord God above all and one’s neighbor as oneself, which embodies the essence of his life and teachings.

This post is about the third approach which led to a fourth for him personally, opening the Way to restoration and ascension for all of mankind.  The following is from my book SACRED ANATOMY. 

◊♦◊

The Way of the Master                                        

       There was a Man sent from God—an incarnate God Being—who returned to Heaven with his human capacities restored to their glorified state.  His name was Jesus and he was called “Master” by those who loved and followed him closely. 

       Putting these cycles of restoration in a certain perspective, Uranda called them “Sacred Schools” in that they were periods of spiritual education, a time when human beings were taught by great spirits and masters how to function spiritually in each level of ascent as the restoration continued to unfold. Jesus initiated the second cycle, at the level of the mental plane, and opened the door to the third, the level of the expression of Spirit, with his two Great Commandments of Love. But those to whom he brought the Way back into the “kingdom of heaven” either didn’t comprehend him or rejected him out of hand and sought to erase him from the face of the Earth by destroying his personal temple.  This time it was men who failed to defeat the Divine Design for restoration, as it was beyond their reach.

       Jesus dealt with human consciousness from the “mental plane approach.” He offered tranquility, a quality of the Spirit of the Single Eye in the second plane of being, to minds frantically busy with the letter of the law and the prophets.  “Peace, be still,” were words he often spoke before preaching and ministering to his disciples. He took issue with the Scribes and Pharisees, for example, which he blatantly characterized as “hypocrites” and “whited sepulchers full of dead men’s bones” for  the way they allowed the letter of the law to overshadow the “spirit that giveth life.” 

      He came to fulfill the law and the prophets, not to impose them upon the faithful in order to “lord it over them.” Above all, he met and dealt forthrightly and in singleness of purpose with his own human mind and restored order and beauty to his house of Being.  “Get thee behind me, Satan” were his words of rebuke more than once to his own human mind and through it to the collective mind in the larger body of mankind.

       He brought one law, the law of love, to replace the many laws that were on the books and enforced in order to keep the people subdued and under control. That law was stated as two Great Commandments: “Thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all of thy heart and all of thy mind and with all of thy strength,” and “Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself.” 

In giving this one law of love, He began opening the third level of consciousness and plane of being, the spiritual-expression plane approach, which is made from the level of the heart.  It is simply the expression of the spirit of God in living, which brings a realization of the presence of God in one’s temple and an outpouring of blessing into one’s world.  We have seen how this level is the domain of the Spirit of Blessing.

       “Blessed are the pure in heart for they shall see God,” He taught, and in so teaching began to open the way leading up into the fourth level of consciousness, which is the plane of being connecting heaven and earth and the level of awareness of divine identity. The Spirit of Purification reins here to bring clarity to the heaven.

In order to enter this level of consciousness, where one knows with assurance one’s own divine presence in the world, the heart must be purified by the continual and consistent outpouring of the Holy Spirit of Love.  It is the only way—and the Master Jesus went that way, even though no one at the time was willing to go with Him.  “I am the way, the truth and the life,” He proclaimed and then proceeded to exemplify for all who had ears to hear and eyes to see. 

      Here was the Lord of Love himself incarnate on earth attempting to gather human beings back under his wings, “as a hen with her brood,” but they “would not.”  The gospels say Jesus wept over the city of Jerusalem.  It was not for himself that he wept but for what he saw human beings were doing to themselves.  He came to initiate the process by which human beings could come out of the state of dying souls and back into the state of original innocence as living souls, only he was met by all sorts of resistance and considerable opposition. 

      When it became apparent to him that he was not going to be allowed to initiate that process for the whole body of mankind through His personal hedge of followers, he accepted the responsibility himself of ascending to the third and fourth planes of being.  But he did not stop here.  There had already been too much failure in the past.  He went all the way through the remaining three levels of being: the fifth which is that of radiance under the domain of the Spirit of Life, the sixth which is that of wisdom under the domain of the Spirit of Truth, or the Womb, and finally the seventh, the dwelling place of the Spirit of Love, with his transfiguration, resurrection and ascension into heaven.

       He stepped from earth back into heaven from whence he had come—and from whence we all have come—giving the simple and apparently achievable instruction to simply follow him: “He that believes in me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.” (John 14:12)

      Going unto the Father is the first step and the last that leads to union with God and glorious transfiguration.  He established agreement on earth with His Father in heaven, and where two agree on earth as touching anything “in my name” (in the vibration of love), it shall be done of them by the Father in heaven.  He was able to step, body, soul and spirit, back into the realms of light by reason of the working of this law of love, and the process of ascension manifested in His humanity.

      Each one of these steps of ascent, from one level of consciousness to the next, manifested changes in his outer form.  They each had their impact on Him physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. Throughout this process he experienced amazing feats of all sorts: levitation, transfiguration, command of the wind, mental telepathy, long distance healing power,  a potently radiant and highly charged personal atmosphere that when but touched by those around him in faith, wrought healing, power to raise the dead, and many other miracles of transformation. The greatest transformation was that of his own consciousness to the clear, absolute realization that “I and my Father are one.”   He attained to the vibration of the Father, who is love, as he himself had long since earned the title of “Lord of Love.” 

       Probably the toughest of all the outer manifestations of change to move through was his betrayal and subsequent crucifixion. Yet move through it he did, maintaining His connection with his Father and thereby maintaining the continuity of the cycle he had initiated which took him step by step back into the Realms of Light from whence he had come.  He surely saw that experience as a door through which he had to pass in order to go the Way he had chosen. Death with its seeming finality was to him but the shadow side of eternal life itself, and not just for his spirit but for his own body temple as well. 

      The door that leads into the light is always hidden in the shadow, because it is closed.  He opened that door and found resurrection and ascension on the other side, and he opened it with unconditional love for and forgiveness of those who had put him on the cross.  His heart was utterly purified in the fire of love he shared with his Heavenly Father, and which he sought unceasingly to share with his disciples and the world which his Father so loved and had sent him to save.  His outer form was transformed by the Spirit of Purification as He moved through the fourth plane of being on his way up in the ascension process.  Indeed, he became the Spirit of Purification himself at the fourth level of being, the crossover point between spirit and form, and burned his way through the thick veil of the impure heart of humanity. 

      In a service entitled “The Way of the Master,” Martin Cecil describes these events in a remarkably clear and thought-provoking presentation.  He refers to a “tone” sounded:

What a task!  What an unbelievable undertaking, and yet He did it, in spite of everything . . .   He established what we have called the true tone of life for man, an actual vibratory radiation that has been sounding on earth all down the centuries . . . .  It was set of course not by a man as such but by the Lord through a man.  That trumpet tone has been sounding without diminishing for nineteen centuries . . . .

     When He did proceed through the creative cycle in His own personal experience on earth He did what He might to assist those who were present with Him to come along into an experience of greater understanding, but they didn’t get very far.  You may recall, in the Gospel of John, Philip and Thomas, two of the disciples, had no faintest idea as to what it was that our Master was talking about.  He’d been speaking: “Let not your heart be troubled: ye believe in God, believe also in me.”  And He said, “I go to prepare a place for you.”  That’s the way He was going, moving through these successive levels of consciousness in the creative cycle, the ascending cycle, thereby preparing the way.  Nobody was going with Him at that time.  The disciples were completely at sea. They enjoyed being with Him, they loved Him, but they didn’t know what was happening and apparently no one has known since. Some beliefs have been generated, some ideas have been produced, and there may have been a little truth back of some of these things. But only now, when it begins to surface and come within the range of present human experience, does it once more become meaningful.  It becomes meaningful to the extent that it is experienced; not to the extent that it is thought about or discussed, or to the extent that doctrines are established; it means something only on the basis of actual experience.  So because there begins to be some actual experience it begins to be meaningful . . . .  (Excerpted from Third Sacred School, Vol. 2, Chapter 28)

       It is the experience that this One Divine Man undertook himself that has established what the body of mankind is to experience and has experienced since he set this tone and sounded it all the way through the seven levels of being as he ascended with his body temple restored to its glorified state.  This is the path that all of mankind has been invited to take and that we each must travel if we are to experience fully the salvation which he brought, the path leading well beyond worship of God to resurrection and ascension in sacred union with God.  Until the reality of such union is actually known, man shall continue his search for Eden outside himself and worship God at the foot of altars made of wood and stone — but not for long. ♦

◊♦◊

The purpose of restoration relates primarily to the return of this world, the earth and the fulness thereof, to the One whose world it is, through Man restored.  In my next post, “The Transmutation of Planet Earth,” I will give in-depth and specific consideration to the divine design by which the Earth is restored to the One who is responsible for it.  Until then,

Be love.  Be loved.

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

The 7 Vibrations In Nature

We are souls dressed up in sacred biochemical garments and our bodies are the instruments through which our souls play their music.”   Albert Einstein

◊ ◊ ◊ ♦ ◊ ◊ ◊

In the wake of the series, The Spirit of the New Earth Vibration, and while scanning my documents in search of a file, I came upon something my friend PenDell Pittman scribed and sent to me several months ago. With his permission, I will share it in this post. As you will see, it echoes and expands in a most clear and thoughtful way the theme of my last few posts in which I described the creative process through which the Spirit of Love moves down into the body mediated and differentiated into seven vibrational frequencies by the 7 glands of the endocrine system in order to touch the physical realm and re-create and maintain the new earth of our physical bodies.  PenDell’s meditation envisions the same creative process as it unfolds Creation itself in the larger cosmic context.  The opening words of Genesis explode in my mind:

“In the Beginning God created the heavens and the earth; and the earth was without form and void; and darkness was upon the face of the deep; and the spirit of God moved upon the face of the waters and God said: “Let there be light.” (Genesis 1:1)

And the universe unfolded out of the Light, shaped by the sound of Love’s Word, differentiated into 7 rainbow frequencies composing the Music of the Spheres. In five cosmic days, the world of Nature was created as a setting for Man and Woman to live and share the ongoing work of creating the world of beauty we see around us in Nature.  As PenDell envisioned and describes it step by cosmic step in this beautiful writing. . . .

7 VIBRATIONS IN NATURE

Vibration 1:   Lines of Love Force radiate into the unformed. 

Vibration 2:   The unformed is attracted to and becomes stimulated by Vibration 1. A Womb for Vibration 1 is established and becomes Vibration 2. In harmony with Vibration 1, Vibration 2 begins to radiate Lines of Force further into the unformed.    

Vibration 3:   The Radiation of the harmonization of Vibration 1 and Vibration 2 create patterns of complexity in the unformed which blossom into Vibration 3, the Life Force.

Vibration 4:   The radiance of Vibration 3 moves out into a wider radius, enticing greater complexity.  Eurythmic relationships emerge between existing complexities. This intermingling sets in motion a new pulsation that adds Assurance and Clarity to the Lines of Love Force.  

Vibration 5:   Lines of Force moving through Vibration 4 bring about an urge for greater specificity. Direction and Purpose are established within the matrix of complexities by the radiation of Sanctification.

Vibration 6:   The radiation of Vibration 5 brings a calming influence to the creative cauldron out of which a focus of intelligence and coordination comes into play and begins to apply itself as the Force of Tranquility, flowing gently within the matrix of complexities.

Vibration 7:   The Vibration 6 Lines of Force pour out into atomic substance causing it to tremble. Cymatic patterns of design begin to appear in the atomic substance that in time find relationship in symbiotic configurations that grow in complexity. In Patience a New Earth is born.

In this new beginning in our day, God is incarnate on Earth in a body of heavenly hosts who have found one another and connected along ancient lines of eternal friendship. A new Heaven has already descended upon human consciousness for a New Earth, a void awaiting its birth.  Darkness is once again upon the face of the deep of tomorrow.  The Spirit of God once again moves upon the face of the waters; and the angelic host incarnate and awake say in one voice with one accord: “Let there be light!” And there is light. And in the Light of Love there is peace in the heart and stillness in the outer mind.  And the peace and stillness allows the minute and specific details of design and control in Heaven for the New Earth to unfold and reveal themselves, all in the seasons of the Lord and the rhythms of the Music of the Spheres.  Patience is the call of the day.  Let it all unfold naturally.

The light of love shines in the darkness, and the darkness does not comprehend it, for the darkness thinks itself to be the light, the dim and waning light of “knowledge” worshipped by the human intellect.  Nevertheless, the light of love shines in the darkness and enlightens the world and human consciousness so that the New Earth can be clearly seen coming down from God out of Heaven, and joyously welcomed.

And we’ve only just begun Day One.  Let love shine into the darkness without concern for tomorrow.  All is well and well in our hands, the hands of God on Earth.  Let it be so.

Reclaiming Our Hearts & Our Home, part 2

I received a response to my last post from my friend and favorite poet, Don Hynes, in which he takes the consideration to another level.  It prompted me to write a second article on the subject of reclaiming our hearts and our home.  Here’s Don’s letter:

Thank you Tony. This is an inspiring and very well presented issue of your blog. I found the interview with Vandana Shiva enlightening and grounded with the facts at hand as presented by RFK Jr.

Gates may be a psychopath but I would guess more likely he feels he is doing good for the world, good in his own eyes. This is the very same problem with human nature in general, doing “good” in their singular mental framework without seeing how ultimately destructive the result. This is why the Master could say, “Father forgive them, they know not what they do.” I’d guess the Pharisees and Sadducees as well as Pilate and the Romans thought they were doing good by attempting to murder Christ Jesus, getting rid of a dangerous radical, ban him from Facebook and Twitter.

What I gather from all this is that the substance of the Lord, of Creation, is present, and though oppressed, is waiting to be activated in a positive and wholesome way. This is the new heaven arising in the east and the new earth that will surely follow.

FROM ANOTHER POINT OF VIEW

IS IT CURTAINS for the human race, or can we save our species from total obliteration, as environmentalists warn we’re headed?  Or is there a plausible alternative view and option?

There may well be both if philanthropist Bill Gates has any credence left in this highly critical social and political environment.  I know that I’ve been looking at Mr. Gates and his philanthropical activities askance over the past year or more, projecting ulterior motives onto his promotion of the Covid-19 vaccines, for one thing.  Well, I suppose someone with lots of money had to do it, even someone who is viewed as a “psychopath,” an impression one may have gotten from Robert Kennedy, Jr’s interview with Dr. Vandana Shiva in my previous post.  I’m not a psychologist, but I don’t believe the term applies in his case.   

In all fairness, and after some critical thinking, I’ve stopped to do a little research and listen to Bill Gates as a fellow human being who, as my poet friend allowed, may simply be doing his part to make the world a better place to live, if only “in his own eyes.” So, let’s have a look and a listen.  After all, it wouldn’t have to change how some of us may view him . . . although it may.  My view and opinion of him and his endeavors have changed considerably, for whatever that’s worth.  

BILL GATE’S VISIONS OF THE FUTURE 

Bill Gates has been developing and promoting ways to “save our planet” for a number of years, funding “Green Energy” endeavors and projects with his considerable wealth, much of it allegedly accruing from his interest in the Covid-19 vaccines.  Bill Gates was worth $125 billion the first of this year, and would be worth much more were he not such a generous philanthropist.  He gained the distinction of “THE richest man in the world” after his successful launching and promoting of Microsoft, currently worth $1.674 trillion on the market. His share of ownership, after stepping down from the company altogether in 2000, is 1.3%, or $7 billion.  

In 2010 he and his wife founded the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation as a vehicle for their philanthropic activities. Ten years ago, Bill and Melinda Gates and Warren Buffett founded the Giving Pledge. Today, there are more than 200 billionaires from across the globe that have pledged to give away most of their fortunes to charity. The Gates foundation today has $50 billion in assets.  Bill and Melinda have pledged billions towards the effort to fight the virus and develop a viable vaccine.

Sadly, lately, Bill Gates has been the target of a number of wild conspiracy theories surrounding the coronavirus pandemic. Fortunately, a post about how Gates has spent decades of his life and many tens of millions of dollars supporting humanitarian causes went viral. The post states the very real fact that Gates has pretty much done “more to better life on earth…than any other human being to ever live.” While this is somewhat hyperbole, the fact is that Gates has given more than $50 billion to charity since 1994. The amazing thing is, his wealth has grown at an even faster pace than he’s given it away.  (Celebrity Net Worth)

Here’s a short clip in which Bill Gates offers an optimistic message about the future:

Listening to this, one could critique it by noting that Bill says nothing about the spiritual dimensions of consciousness as he lists assets along the path we might take, such as education, reduced population growth, extended life span, more science, more global understanding and sense of our common humanity, taking advantage of our innate curiosity and capabilities.  All these things are obviously mental and physical assets and activities that require little spiritual resource other than life energy.  Perhaps that’s not his role to play.  Others are offering spiritual inspiration and guidance of a transformational nature in the multilevel and multidimensional consciousness of the Body of Humanity.  We each have our unique and diverse roles to play.

Returning to Don’s comment above, I am compelled to ask the question “How is the “substance of the Lord, of Creation” going to be “activated in a positive and wholesome way” if not through human beings—through you and me?  We are the appointed keepers of the Garden of Eden here on Earth.  All through our biblical history, the delivery of the Lord’s salvation has been done through human beings: Abraham and Moses, for instance, and later on the Buddha and Jesus—not that I’m equating Bill Gates’ stature with that of the Buddha or Jesus, or even Abraham and Moses.  He is, however, a human being, one of us, who is also providing a dynamic focus of light energy in the field of planetary existential issues that impact all of humanity, such as climate control, global warming and world hunger; added to these now is the fresh water crisis and this pandemic.  His focus is at the mental level, like a light-bearer shining the light of possibilities in the darkness of global fear and uncertainty. 

Don concluded his comment saying “This is the new heaven arising in the east and the new earth that will surely follow.”  Well, I think the new heaven has descended upon human consciousness over the past few decades.  It awaits activation through human beings.  In its own season the new earth will follow and continue to unfold on the planet, and all of us are part of the means by which it unfolds, including Bill Gates and his fellow donors to the “Giving Pledge.”  They are part of the means by which the new earth emerges, perhaps even by which the old earth is held in place long enough for the new earth to take its place without too many perishing?  And perhaps the means by which it passes away.  Is this the provision of the Lord that I am questioning and judging as just another example of human nature’s bright ideas that result in destruction?  There’s nothing wrong or evil about human nature under the dominion and activation of the spirit of God.  It’s only in its self-active state that human nature is lost and therefore dangerous and destructive.  

To be honest, I don’t know how it is all to unfold, other than out of the new heaven. I am giving myself pause in my judgement of wealthy philanthropists in our world today.  Surely even “they” have a purpose in the Divine economy and plan for the restoration, as we each one have.  In reality there is no they, only US.  We are one human race and one Creation under the Sun.  Let me not think that I know what those who take the initiative to do what they see is theirs to do, what they should and shouldn’t do. Let me rather be about what is mine to do while sending them love and gratitude.  For, as the co-founder of Chiropractic Dr. BJ Palmer wrote:

”We never know how far reaching something we may think, say or do today will affect the lives of millions tomorrow.  It’s better to light a candle than curse the darkness.”

Perhaps I’m giving away too much of the store here.  I don’t know.  I want to believe . . . NO, I KNOW that every angel now incarnate on Earth is here to take part in the restoration of the Earth and of Humanity in one form and another, and what Bill Gates’ part is, or anyone else’s part to play, is not my business. It’s the Lord’s business. 

My part is to be about my Father’s business, and writing this blog is just one part of my role at this stage of my earthly sojourn of eighty years.  I write about what’s on my platter in the moment and Bill Gates has been on it for some time.  God bless him . . . and, yes poet, Father forgive him and all others who may not know what they do.  God knows, and that’s enough for me.

Speaking of sending love, during my Attunement sessions these past several days I’ve noticed a marked increase in the intensity of the current of love moving through my heart and hands. We have crossed a threshold into a new dimension and layer of cosmic energy pouring out from the radiant core of the Milky Way Galaxy and of the Sacred Heart of God.  Love’s light is increasing.  Praise be to God in the Highest Heaven.

Do send me your thoughts . . . and your vision for a new world.  I may share them unless you prefer not. Until my next post, 

Be love. Be forgiving

In celebration of the blue-sky sunshiny days we’re having in the aftermath of harsh winter storms, I share this exuberantly jubilant poem by E. E. Cummings, “I Thank You God.”

i thank You God for most this amazing
day: for the leaping greenly spirits of trees
and a blue true dream of sky; and for everything 
which is natural which is infinite which is yes. 
(i who have died am alive again today,
and this is the sun’s birthday; this is the birthday
of life and of love and wings: and of the gay great
happening illimitably earth)
how should tasting touching hearing seeing
breathing any—lifted from the no of all nothing—
human merely being doubt unimaginable You?
(now the ears of my ears awake and
now the eyes of my eyes are opened.)

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.
