Calm in the Eye of the Storm

 

Standing within the calm eye of Hurricane Audrey on June 27,1957, the tall trees to the north bending westward with the 125 mph winds, and those to the south bending eastward, I looked up to see small white clouds floating peacefully in a clear blue sky, while all around me lay branches of our pecan trees torn loose and cast to the ground by the relentless winds. I was in the center of the storm where only a calm breeze brushed my face.  As the eye moved on northward, the powerful winds returned and, fearlessly, I leaned into them at a near thirty degree angle.  It was such an exhilarating experience yielding my body into this awesome force of Nature while remaining present and untouched by fear or worry. A line from a poem I wrote some years ago, “This Angel’s Tree,” comes to mind: “But, best of all, this tree so tall, gave he a spirit wise, that it would know, when winds do blow, to bend and when to rise.”  

We evacuated for Hurricane Laura as it roared toward our home town a week ago yesterday as a category 4 storm wielding high velocity winds of 150-175 mph.  The destruction to our city is devastating.  Tall and massive trees are uprooted while those still standing are stripped of their leaves and many branches. Debris from ravaged buildings fills streets where fallen utility poles were brought down by wind-swung heavy cables. Our sweet wood-frame home with roof shingles blown off, its solid structure intact, was wet inside with ceiling tiles on the floor and furniture.  All our trees, including a tall cedar, lay westward on the ground crushing fences and gardens. Only an old Magnolia tree remained standing in the front yard stripped of its leaves and a number of its limbs. 

Recovery looms large before us as a daunting task, to say the least.  This isn’t our first hurricane to recover from. Fifteen years ago we returned from our vacation in Oregon to restore our storm-damaged home and yard in the wake of Hurricane Rita, a category 3 storm, which hit the Louisiana-Texas coast one month after Hurricane Katrina had devastated the city and population of New Orleans, killing 2000 people and leaving 100-billion dollars in damages in its wake.  There were just over a dozen deaths during this hurricane and only 100 in Rita, which did 12-billion dollars in damage. The final cost of this storm is yet to be tabulated.

We were not in the eye of Laura, but we are in the middle of the chaos and confusion left in its wake.  By the grace of God, we find ourselves present in the calm center of it all taking care of what presents itself in each moment for right handling.  As my wife put it a few days ago, our angels are appearing as they are needed, offering us refuge and help, even their home two hours away while waiting for our insurance adjuster to meet with us in order to assess the damages to our house and property.  There’s little more that we can do than simply be present in the moment and in the calm center of Being, receiving what comes and offering help where we are able.

Speaking of help, it’s coming forth everywhere, as it does in crises such as this.  Neighbor helping neighbor and strangers pitching in to clear the debris–not to mention all the utility workers restoring power lines and replacing the hundreds of downed utility poles.  Like an ant hill disturbed, the near frantic activity in the city and surrounding areas began the day after the storm.  The human spirit is undaunted.  Compassion, kindness, generosity and love abound everywhere.  We are blessed by so many.  Thank you all for your support in so many ways. God bless you each one. 

Until my next post, 

Be love. Be loved.

As Below So Above—Divine Cosmology

“When quietly fall the shades on parting day
And whispering shadows ush’ring in the night
Creep o’er the hills and vales imbibing light.
When, harsh, the eye of heaven ceases prey
On verdant sights of Nature’s vast array,
And all that’s bright seems lost, to my dismay.
Then lift I, mind and heart, to heav’n’s embrace,
And there behold in awe majestic wealth:
A myriad worlds and worlds of heavenly dust,
In splendor clad with awe-inspiring grace.
Nay, what seemed lost to darkest night’s cruel stealth
Doth shine against that darkness thrice august.”

(The poem is my attempt at sonnet writing in English Lit Class.  I got an A− on it.  I thought it deserved an A+ of course.  But I was pleased anyway to have the teacher’s recognition of my budding poetry writing talent.  I loved English Literature.)

AS BELOW SO ABOVE 

The Design of the Inner Realms of Light is exactly and precisely mirrored in the design of the Cosmos, where heavenly bodies orbit around central hubs of focused light, all governed by the Law of Attraction.  Also known as The One Law and The Law of Love, this Law simply stated is: Positive Radiation and Negative Response. Everything in the Cosmic Universe radiates God’s love and responds to God’s radiance.  Love is the sole Focus of Divinity, as well as of the Cosmos.  Love is all there is in the entire Universe.

The extension of the One Law in the unfolding of the Creative Process is stated by Lloyd A. Meeker (Uranda):  “Radiation Response Attraction Union Unified Radiation.”  As can be demonstrated with a set of magnets, a positive attracts a negative and repels another positive. Spiraling galaxies are held together by this One Law.  Suns hold their planetary satellites and planets their moons in orbits around them on the basis of this Law of Attraction.  Creation unfolds on the basis of this Creative Process, manifesting the beauty and precision of a Divine Order and Design. 

A DESIGN OF FOCUSED CONTROL & GOVERNANCE

Looking up at the night sky, one can behold that order and design made manifest.  The Design of God, which involves level upon level of focalized spiritual essences and coordinated creative activity.  Every galaxy embodies a Divine Entity in charge of that particular galaxy surrounded by angelic hosts.  Every Sun in each and every galaxy provides a cloak for a LORD God.  Our Sun provides the outer radiant garment for the LORD of Love, also known as the LORD of Lords and KING of Kings, who has visited our planet a number of times.  I am reminded of the opening words from a powerful sacred solo written and sung by two dear friends:

How shall we give Thee glory, who art the Living God? Power? Who art the very flame of Love. Kingdom? When the Universe of stars is but a cloak to Thee. Thou art all things. All things come from Thee, return again unto Thee, and abide always in Thee . . . .

At the supreme apex of Being is the GOD of Gods encircled by heavenly hosts whose “cloak” is the entire vast Cosmos. There is focalized order, in other words, throughout GOD’s Heaven reflected in the Cosmos.  When we pray the “Lord’s Prayer” we invite this heavenly design and order to manifest itself in our world: “Thy will be done on Earth as it is in Heaven.”

Would that we inhabitants of the Earth would follow through with that invitation by allowing this prayer to manifest, to allow the order and harmony in the invisible realms of Light, GOD’s Heaven, to create order and harmony in the visible realm here on Earth. I grant you that no earthly soul has the faintest clue as to what that would look like.  All we can know is that the Creating Spirit of God, Love, is an organizing Force that alone knows how to bring order out of chaos.  All we have to do is let the light of Love shine through us into the whirling chaos and watch the impeccable order and beautiful harmony of Heaven appear through us on Earth, manifesting in season a true community, a community of friends of God and of one another.

DESIGN AND CONTROL THROUGHOUT THE COSMOS

In that Design are various combinations and configurations of 3’s, 7’s, 12’s 13’s 17’s, etc., and an infinite number of pairs of opposites.  It is by way of the various designs and configurations of stars in the Cosmos that control and governance is extended so that order and harmony are made possible.  Without design, control cannot be offered, and chaos results. It is due to our resistance to design and control that the world is in a chaotic state today.

We can observe the control of the positive and negative aspects of the One Law, where a positive central Sun attracts a negative and responsive field of planets and satellites, while at the same time repelling another solar system or galaxy with their radiant positive core, thereby keeping them from colliding with one another.  In this dynamic, repulsion is as crucial to order as attraction, otherwise everything would compress into a gigantic chaotic mass.  The Law works to maintain order and harmony, provided it is allowed to work the way it is designed to work. 

Physicists have learned they can manipulate this Law, to a point, by splitting the atom to release the awesome power of the Universe, which is the power of Love, by destroying the balance of the atomic fabric of Creation through fission.  But fission is not the result of Love’s power working through natural design and control principles.  The power of Love brings things together on the basis of fusion.  Fission is man’s bright idea realized tragically in the explosion of atomic warheads that kill and destroy.  Even in our use of fission to generate electricity we have harnessed power that destroys if accidentally released from a compromised atomic reactor.  On top of that, we’ve created an insoluble problem of storing used radioactive material in a safe place.   

Water is used to cool the radioactive rods and control the release of energy.  Of course, if the water leaks out through a damaged reactor, all hell breaks loose, as was the case with the Fukushima Daiichi nuclear disaster in Japan created by an earthquake and a tsunami.  Then there was the explosion of the nuclear plant at Chernobyl in the Ukraine that sent a plume into the atmosphere with radioactive fallout that was 400 times greater than that released in the atomic bombing of Hiroshima, which was an atrocity in itself, well justified of course.

 A SYMBOL OF TRUTH 

Water has been metaphorically used as a symbol of truth, because of how its design and consistency offers a controlling element, as well as a cleansing one.  Water is a excellent solvent as it loosens the bonds that hold certain elements together, like dirt and rust, freeing them from their structured settings.  Water is also used in plants to move building blocks and nutrients up into the fruit.  Water floats giant ships, as well as small fishing boats and canoes.  Water has a memory that records whatever is placed or mixed into it.  Another characteristic of water is its tendency to seek its own level all the way down from the snow-covered mountains to the rivers and creeks in the valley, even down to the swamps and marshlands, winding its way eventually back to its origin in the waters of the oceans and seas. We measure our land elevations on the basis of sea levels.  Water is a great symbol of truth. It is honest.

AS ABOVE SO BELOW

Design is a controlling factor in the formation of community.  For example, in Jesus’s ministry a community of 12 disciples was drawn together.  His presence in their midst at the central hub made 13 altogether.  So the numbers 12 and 13 have particular significance in the Sacred Geometry manifesting everywhere in our galaxy and solar system.

There were originally 12 planets, for example, orbiting around our Sun, which made a configuration of 13 heavenly bodies.  We can account for only 9 planets, which leaves 3 planets unaccounted for.  It is thought that the asteroid belt was once a planet that exploded, although NASA doesn’t validate this theory.  Then there is the Kuiper belt, which is home to three officially recognized dwarf planets: Pluto, Haumea and Makemake.  

It is believed that there is a “Ninth Planet” named Nibiru that travels an elongated orbit around our Sun, depicted by the blue orbit in this graphic.  My point is that our solar system is out of wack at the present time and therefore does not offer a balanced and coherent design through which control can be offered to its individual parts and through it to other star systems.  Design is an essential factor in controlling the development and movement of cosmic systems, all of which are contained in a web of magnetic energy force-fields. 

Here on Earth, we organize our societies and communities based on a pattern of focalization as well.  It’s the only way things work anywhere in the cosmos, even in and throughout our physical bodies. Having cut ourselves off from the whole where the One Law governs creation throughout the cosmic community, we have made our own laws by which we seek to govern and control people and nations.  Based on segmentation, segregation and border systems, our laws keep things separate rather than joined together as one global community, a oneness from which we cannot actually escape.  The fact is, the human race is one species, one community, separated only by man-made laws, constitutions declaring independence, and imaginary borers.  The fact also is we are very inter-dependent upon one another.  Our independence is an arbitrarily imposed illusion, a figment of human imagination.  We are inseparably one race, one people.

Do we not think that the power and force of the Light of Love can organize a global community that works as orderly as the cosmos it created and maintains without our bright mental ideas?  I have a feeling that we are on the verge of abandoning our mind-made world in lieu of a Spirit-made world.  What do you think, dear reader?  Are you ready to let go of what hasn’t worked, and doesn’t have enough time left to prove it can ever work, and let go to the way Love works in building true community?  Just look up at the night sky to the heavens and see the evidence all around us, around our planet and our solar system, that proclaim the genius and trustworthiness of Love to create a world that works in harmony with the rest of the Universe; that shouts out to us mortals . . .

“Let Love command!   Let wonders form!   Let Heaven’s beauty shine!   Let every living thing Sing praise for Light Divine.”

Those lyrics are from an Emissaries of Divine Light hymnal, originally a global community drawn together on the basis of the truth of love as a light that human beings are designed to radiate into the world.  Its members are dispersed throughout the world now integrated into communities with other light-workers who share the common purpose of creating a New Earth out of the New Heaven that has emerged in human consciousness over the past decades.  There is no greater invitation and call-out to the inhabitants of the Earth than “Let Love Command.”  Let our Global Community be drawn together by Love, and under the dominion of the Lord of Love.  It’s the only Way Life can work to bring about peace and harmony between peoples and nations.  Let Love command our expression in life. I welcome your thoughts and comments on this post.  Until my next post,

Be love.  Be loved.

“The Reward of the Wicked” — Everything Matters

“A thousand shall fall at thy side, and ten-thousand at thy right hand; but it shall not come nigh thee; for only with thine eyes shalt thou behold and see the reward of the wicked.”

I’ve been viewing videos about the horrible culture of human and sex trafficking, particularly involving innocent children.  It made my stomach sick. I had no idea it is such a huge business in the world of the rich and famous coast to coast and globally.  It’s impossible to behold and see this wickedness with eyes only. My heart bleeds for the children.  Thankfully, this evil is being exposed and its days are numbered. 

The question always comes up for me when I read the biblical passage above, “Who are the wicked?” And the answer always is to be found in Jesus’s answer to those who would stone Mary Magdalene for her sins: “Let he who is without sin cast the first stone.”  Who am I to cast judgement on anyone?

We have all contributed to the wickedness in the world, as well as to whatever goodness there is there, and there’s plenty.  No, we may not be involved in human trafficking or sexual exploitation of the innocent, but we have all done our share of wicked behavior, in our thoughts, our words and/or our deeds.  Everything we do individually matters in the collective consciousness to which we all contribute and out of which we all, in the absence of mindfulness, express.  

A friend and colleague once said: “Nothing is wrong.  Everything matters”—and so it is, although it’s hard to imagine how evil-doers matter and how what they do isn’t wrong.  “They?” Is there a “they” or is there only a “we?”  Or maybe only an “I,” and it’s what I think, say and do that matters in the collective experience?  How often have I heard my mind say “That man needs a bullet to the head.” Horror of horrors that I should even think such a thought, much less voice it, benign as it may well be unless I empower it with deep feeling that launches it into the mass consciousness where it’s then available to some unstable person.  Think about it. 

A quote from my past college days springs to mind:  “There’s no telling 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 to curse the darkness.” The developer of the philosophy of Chiropractic, Dr. B.J. Palmer, handed down these eternal words of wisdom. 

Now, I know I’m “preaching to the choir” here—although intentionally through the choir as a way of sending my words and spirit into the mass consciousness, depending on how they are fielded and received by my readers.  Agreement is a powerfully enabling force—and that’s all I seek from my audience when I blog: agreement in the truth, in what’s right.

We are wise to see and behold the “reward of the wicked” only with our eyes.  We have hearts, however, to feel the energetic texture of what we are seeing and the largeness of spirit to receive it, hold it, and let it be bathed in love, compassion and forgiveness.  In this service to the One, the world, and we, are healed. 

WORDS OF WISDOM AND OF LIFE

So many truthful saws (to borrow a poetic term) have been given to us over the years and eons of time.  William Shakespeare’s sonnet lingers yet in my memory from College English days:

“Let me not to the marriage of true minds Admit impediments. Love is not love which alters when it alteration finds, or bends with the remover to remove: O no! It is an ever fixed mark that looks on tempests and is never shaken; it is the star to every wandering bark whose worth’s unknown, although his height be taken. Love’s not Time’s fool, though rosy lips and cheeks within his bending sickle’s compass come: Love alters not with his brief hours and weeks, but bears it out, even to the edge of doom.”

Then there’s this famous passage from the Bhagavad~Gita:

Arjuna: Yet tell me, Teacher! by what force doth man
Go along his way, unwilling; as if one
Pushed him that troubled path?

Krishna: Life it is! Life’s urge it is! used in darkened understanding,
Which pusheth him. Mighty of appetite,

Powerful, and strong is this!—man’s enemy or friend!
As smoke blots the white fire, as clinging rust

Mars the bright mirror, as the womb surrounds

The babe unborn, so is the world of things

Foiled, soiled, enclosed in wrong uses of Life’s urge.

The wise fall, caught in it; the unresting foe

It is of wisdom, wearing countless forms,
Fair but deceitful, subtle as a flame.

Sense, mind, and reason—these, 0 Kunti’s Son!
Are booty for it; in its play with these

It maddens man, beguiling, blinding him.
Therefore, thou noblest child of Bharata!

Govern thy heart.
Constrain the entangled sense!

Resist the false, soft sinfulness which saps
Knowledge and judgment!

Yea, the world is strong,
But he who discerns is stronger, and the Christed mind 

Is strongest; with high o’er all the ruling Soul.

Wherefore, perceiving Him who reigns supreme,

Put forth full force of Soul in thy own soul!

Fight! vanquish foes and doubts, dear Hero! slay

What haunts thee in fond shapes, and would betray!

The beloved poet Rumi gave us this transcendent poem that speaks to another level of being and a safe place for meeting one another.

Out beyond ideas of wrongdoing and rightdoing,
there is a field. I’ll meet you there.
When the soul lies down in that grass,
the world is too full to talk about.
Ideas, language, even the phrase “each other”
doesn’t make any sense.
The breeze at dawn has secrets to tell you.
Don’t go back to sleep.
You must ask for what you really want.
Don’t go back to sleep.
People are going back and forth across the door sill
where the two worlds touch.
The door is round and open.
Don’t go back to sleep.

There are so many wise words, not the least of which are those of the Master Jesus recorded and handed down to us by the scribes and cloistered monks who spent their entire lives translating and copying scroll after ancient scroll in order to preserve the wisdom of the ages for posterity.  I feel so blessed and thankful—as well as compelled to take heed of what has been given to us in the way of the Word.  God has spoken to His people through so many. Dare I let God speak through me and through you and all those who lift up their hearts and minds to the One whose Earth this is . . . “and the fullness thereof; the world and they that dwell therein.”

Anyone can wax eloquent with words.  What matters is everything that I and every one of us think, say and do in our daily lives.  Nothing is wrong.  Everything matters.  Every emotionally-charged thought materializes.

Do we not see this pandemic plaguing the population of the planet as nothing more nor less than the “reward of the wicked?” The fall out of the wicked thoughts and actions of mankind that have “foiled, soiled” the collective heart and consciousness and filled them with all sorts of ill uses of the gift of Life itself, “Life’s urge . . . used in darkened understanding”?  It’s all mattering, manifesting on Earth from out of the spoiled heaven of the mass consciousness of humanity. The prayer of the crucified Man from Galilee must be our prayer today: “Father, forgive us, for we know not what we do.”

Beyond prayer, let us wake up and see and know what we are doing to ourselves and to God’s Earth before it’s too late and time is no more.  Personally, I believe we’ve already passed that point where and when time is no more.  This pandemic may well be our last wake-up call.

Yet, with all that said, the LORD of lords, whose Earth we inhabit, I know is taking full advantage of this crisis to bring about a balance and harmony between the Earth and the Heaven out of which it was born.  To make once again Heaven and Earth one. All is well and in God’s hands.

As a colleague acknowledged in a conference call yesterday, this pandemic has brought about a greatly needed pause in our busy lives that we would likely never have found time nor a way to arrange willingly and deliberately. A pause to remember that we are one community of people who really do love and care for one another.

I’ll leave it there.  Any thoughts stirred and wanting to be shared?  I welcome them.  Until my next post . . . if there is one,

Be love. Be loved

Transmutation of Planet Earth, page 3: Resurrection and Ascension

Our Beautiful Planet Earth

“Jesus said: This sky will cease to be, and the sky above it will cease to be. The dead do not live, and the living will not die.”   —From The Gospel of Thomas

Transmutation of substance precedes resurrection and ascension.  In order for substance to ascend to a higher vibratory level, it has to be refined.  There is only one creative force that can refine and transmute substance so that it can ascend to a higher vibratory level, and that’s the gentle, subtle energy of the fire of Love.  

Transmutation results in an upgrade of vibratory rate, causing a substance to appear as a new and different substance, only it’s not.  As Lord Exeter emphasizes right at the start in the excerpt that follows, Love is all there is.  There is nothing in the entire Universe that is not a differentiation of the one substance of Love.  One might argue the point and say “Well, there’s hate. Hate is not love.” No it isn’t. In fact, it is the absence of love—but only absent from expression through the human heart and mind.

Hate is nothing.  It is a void where love has been withdrawn or withheld, something only we human beings are free to do.  Only human beings can hate, can deny love its expression in the world, and suffer the consequences.  The consequences of hate are violence, destruction and death, all of which are occurring in our world today where the controlled release of love through hearts and minds is blocked by a hardening of the heart.

Lord Exeter refers to the heart as a “womb” for the birth of life, and a heaven out of which creation manifests. Where this womb is shut, closed to the spirit of Love, it is burned and hardened by its resistance to the very fire that would purify it and to the love that would heal its wounds.  Without the controlled release of the fusing fire of Love, the fire of fission erupts from below to burn up what cannot, or will not, ascend to a higher level, including the womb of the heart, turning it into a lump of ash too heavy to ascend—and where one’s heart goes one’s body follows.  As Lord Exeter points out in the last words of this excerpt, there is a lot more descending than needs to descend in the true state. 

I am interested in love and peace, life and creation, resurrection and ascension, as was Lord Exeter when he gave this service.  As before, read with an open and still mind and quiet heart. Open to the current that weaves truth and wisdom through his words.  It’s in the heart where spiritual essences are discerned and understanding occurs.  

“Transmutation with Regard to the Total Earth” (continued)

We have been considering the resurrection. The womb may be said to be the means by which life is born. The substance of love was first necessary if there was to be the substance of the womb. There is nothing else but love substance, all the way through—love substance but at different vibratory levels. And the substance of the womb is the heaven in relationship to the life that is to be born. We find at every level there is a heaven involved—a connection. You may remember that the second day of the creative cycle described in Genesis spoke of the firmament, the heaven, the connection between the waters above and the waters below, between the truth above and the truth below—the means by which what is below may be brought forth. The heaven at any level is rightly a state where there is a particular atmosphere and a particular enfoldment and a particular control, by which the creative process may continue. All that indicates the presence of what is called truth. So there is a heaven connecting the substance of love above with the substance of life below. There is one heaven.

(Right-click on the image and open in a new window for a larger view—or spread image with fingers.)

We may also see that this total area is the Triune Heaven relative to this area here—what we have called the Triune Earth. What is above is spirit, present in the dimensional world, and the fourth, the level of the heart, represents the connection, the heaven, between what is above and what is below. What is below is the Triune Earth—we could look at them as spheres, which gives them another dimension, one inside the other. The visible earth is at the center. Insofar as physical vision is concerned, that is the only one that is visible. All the others are invisible. And if we were looking at the planet earth we might recognize the fact that it is much larger than the physical ash at the center. It could extend out to about the orbit of the moon. The human view of things, which is based in involvement with externals, always emphasizes the lowest level, so that the earth, the planet, is thought of as being the thing—but it’s only one seventh of the thing. I’m not saying that all the various concentric spheres are regularly the same amount bigger than the one inside. This is merely a diagram of something. But here is a whole. The waters above connected with the waters below by the sphere represented by form, which relates to the substance of the heart—the pure heart, if the creation is as it should be, the pure heart which is the window through which what is above can shine into what is below and therefore be present relative to what is below. It all is there back of what is below—it all permeates what is below. But if the fourth sphere is dense, cloudy, then the larger spheres are not known relative to the smaller spheres in the middle, relative to the earth and to human nature. So the concern is that this veil should be dissolved, the clouds should be dissolved, so that it all may be known as One. The smallest part of it is the earth. The smallest of us is our physical bodies. There is much greater stature than that. Now we see the earth as quite a large planet in fact, relative to the physical earth—much larger than the physical earth. However even if it is as large as the orbit of the moon in fact, that is very small still relative to the size of the solar system. So here we begin to see the symbol of largeness in one direction and smallness in the other direction.

(Right-click on the image and open in a new window for a larger view—or spread image with fingers.)

Now this heaven, which includes the realms of what we call spirit in the dimensional world—seven, six and five—is the cool place, where there is a temperate atmosphere. It’s a comfortable place for angels to dwell. And it is a place of control—this is the kingdom. As the connecting sphere becomes a window through which the nature and quality of heaven may shine, it emerges into the three lowest spheres as the fire of transmutation. In other words, the hot place is the Triune Earth. Here is where the fire is burning in order to transmute the substance, beginning with the physical substance of the earth, into substance of a higher vibratory level. Here is the returning aspect of the cycle—ascension, something moving up. There is the process of transmutation at work in the earth. This is the primary level of where the transmutation is occurring, so that there may be a movement upward, not as though the earth was going someplace—that might not be the concept with respect to the earth but it has been in Christianity. The physical earth is supposed to pop up out of the graves and go to heaven someplace.

But there is no movement in fact in this fashion. It is a transmutation of the substance exactly where it is, not someplace else. And what is occurring may be said to refine—a refiner’s fire by which the substance is refined and changes its nature. We can see this in a very elementary way: the changing of the nature of the mineral earth as it is lifted into the bodies of living forms, whether vegetable or animal or whatever. The substance of the flesh of your body is different to a model of your body made in marble. The flesh of your body and all its various parts are composed of entirely different substance—it’s a different quality, a different nature. So there has been that much transmutation in the experience of your own physical body from the mineral level—something has been happening. It is assumed that it is in the nature of a circle: the substance is just lifted up into your physical body, it stays there for a while, and then bang, it collapses down into the mineral kingdom again. This is not exactly the way it works now, in fact, but it certainly is not the way it was designed to work in the original creation—it isn’t a circle. There is a continuing movement upward, and whatever has been sufficiently refined to move to the higher level moves to the higher level. And what is not capable of moving to the higher level drops down to the lower level, so that it may be acted upon again by the creative fires in the refining process, and gradually it is lifted up. There is less and less left in the way of ash and more and more moving in the ascending spiral.

There is a transmutation occurring with respect to this total planet, not just with respect to the earth aspect of it, which is the very smallest aspect. There is something happening with respect to this total planet—a movement upward; an ascending cycle is at work. But since man left his position it has been a very slow and limited process. Everything has been at a standstill virtually. It is not working the way it should—only partially so—and very little has occurred since man fell of the true creative process. It couldn’t, because there was no man in place to let it happen. This outlines something which is incapable of being encompassed by the human mind; but it is something that is happening, whatever words may be used to describe the process, of which it is necessary to become increasingly aware. Here is something actually occurring with which we are associated. If we tend to sort of blot it out of our experience with the idea that mentally speaking we can’t grasp it, then we certainly can’t participate in a way that is going to be of any value in the process itself, for which we carry a very definite responsibility.

As angels we carry that responsibility, and we are here to let that responsibility be fulfilled. As we move together these things naturally will clarify themselves to the extent that we are willing to let it be so, willing to let the Word of God be spoken in our own individual and collective experience. There is the ascending cycle at work, even though it isn’t working the way it should work. It is limited and restricted, and a lot more is descending than needs to descend in the true state.

“As we move together these things naturally will clarify themselves to the extent that we are willing to let it be so, willing to let the Word of God be spoken in our own individual and collective experience.” This sentence holds the key to how the process of transmutation of the total planet unfolds with our participation.  More needn’t be said.  As always, I welcome comments from my readers as I enjoy and value others’ thoughts along these lines.  Until my next post,

Be love. Be loved.

Transmutation of Planet Earth, page 2: Beyond Transformation

 

Earth and Moon


“Whoever is near me is near the fire. Whoever is far from me is far from the Kingdom.” —Jesus, from The Gospel of Thomas

 

Transmutation is by the unified radiation of love.  In this post I will push the envelope a bit to contemplate further the process of transmutation and ascension.  We have completed the process of transformation of consciousness sufficiently to move on to what’s next. I will share a presentation by contemporary spiritual teacher Lord Martin Exeter (1909-1988), whom I was honored and privileged to know as my mentor in transformation—words that may bring to remembrance the commission we signed up for as angels before incarnating on Earth. I will share a part here and another part next weekend.  I started sharing this consideration in a blog post back in June.  If you haven’t yet read that excerpt, it will help in understanding this one, as it flows from the other. He was speaking about true angelic stature, and then moved into a consideration of the transmutation of the total earth, the earth of our planet as well as that of our physical body.

As Lord Exeter points out toward the end of his presentation, the mind is incapable of comprehending how this process plays out.  However, as he emphasizes, it is something that is occurring with which we are associated, and as angels it is necessary that we become increasingly aware of it, as we have a responsibility to participate in the process in a meaningful way.  In other words, we can’t just blow it off as something the mind simply cannot comprehend.

As we know, there is a Creative Process, and we—Man, male and female, made in the image and likeness of God—are created with capacities that equip us to participate in creation.  How can we participate in creation unless we know what is actually going on within the context of the ascending and descending cycles of the creative process. We can’t as long as we are distracted by and preoccupied with the problems in our mind-made world.  From the Creator’s standpoint, these problems are insignificant.  They are simply the outworking of cycles set in motion by self-centered, self-active humans who are bent on consuming the earth and her resources expending minimal effort replenishing them.

The world we have created is not much different from the world that was destroyed by the Great Deluge of Noah’s day.  We have multiplied flesh upon the face of the earth and polluted our world beyond the point of return to healthfulness.  And now we are “at war” with a virus that is changing our way of life and threatening our economy and our very existence, taking out the inflicted on an hourly basis.  From the standpoint of an over-crowded planet, this may be Mother Nature’s way of reducing the population, albeit by a very small fraction relatively speaking.  From one viewpoint, it may be a “harvesting” of souls—reminiscent of what was foretold in the “RA Material” that both Edgar Casey, and today David Wilcock, have delved into and published research on—(a brief review of which I will include later in this series).

Jacob’s “ladder” reaching up to heaven from the earth is busy with angels ascending back Home with others descending to don infant forms created by our runaway species.  Abortion may well be a Godsend, allowed because of the “hardness of men’s hearts,” the same reason divorce and remarrying among the Israelites was permitted by Moses.

Who is to say abortion is not a divine intervention to put a rein on the number of people populating this relatively small planet?  Religious groups who object to abortion may well be going against the Creator’s efforts to stem the tide of Earth’s population explosion, and the flow of angels descending to incarnate, thousands of them finding their earthly destinations terminated and having to return to the realms of light. 

How many of us ever think about this, the dilemma we may be creating here on earth for the Creators responsible for maintaining a balance in this world between occupancy and sustainability without imposing on our freedom of will and choice?  In an orderly Universe where design and control are essential patterns in the creative process, do we not imagine that there are just so many angels assigned to this planet simply due to its size?  Seven-billion seems to be about right, as we started being over-crowded and an exhausting drain on our natural resources shortly after passing that mark just a few decades ago.  Even seven-billion self-centered humans unconscious of their angelic presence are too many.

And we squabble with one another over racial discrimination and economic disparity in the midst of the impending collapse of our uncivilized world, dubiously grateful for a common viral enemy uniting us, though not for long as people rush to get back to “normal “ and “business as usual,” neither of which appear likely.

When will we as a race of human beings begin seeing what’s occurring on Earth from the Creator’s viewpoint above Creation?  See what’s actually going on from a heavenly perspective?  It’s finished.  Game over.  Time to stop playing children’s games and get back to the real mission for which we as divine beings, angels of light and love each one, signed on, part of which relates to the process of transmutation and ascension already occurring and has been from day one, only it’s wanting to move on to a higher and finer vibratory level.  It needs our conscious participation.  

This is what Lord Martin Exeter offered to the awakening world some forty-one years ago and addresses in this excerpt: a view from above—or from within, depending on one’s viewpoint.  Take the time, be still, and let the current moving through his words be received into your heart, where alone true understanding is possible.  It’s in our hearts where we are being given understanding of these things so that we can participate in the creative process in a meaningful way.  Listen with a still and open mind and heart.  

“Transmutation as it Relates to the Total Planet”

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

(Right-click on the image and open in a new window for a larger view—or spread image with fingers.)

Let’s start with the smallness of the physical level of things. This is the smallest part of the whole. When looking into the universe, the physical substance in the universe fills a minute fraction of the total space. In other words the physical substance is the smallest aspect of the universe. Let us look at this little circle here as representing this planet, the earth, numbered 1. Relative to the total circle, the earth at the center is very small. We have seen that the substance of love in its pure essence fills and encompasses the whole dimensional world. At the moment we are looking at it from the standpoint of the planet earth; or we could look at it at the same time from the standpoint of our own physical bodies, represented by that little core numbered 1. The outermost circle represents the undifferentiated substance of love that is present everywhere from the circumference to the center. Every level illustrated by the circles that I have drawn is back of that first level. All of the levels therefore are present relative to that little circle at the center—that is the place where the substance is richest—all the levels are there. That is the only place where all the levels actually are. Each level permeates the level below it and extends beyond it, and this is illustrated here. So do not let us think of the seventh level, the substance of love, as merely being a little strip around here. It isn’t—it’s right from here to the center. It’s all‑inclusive.

We have noted that the level of the womb, numbered 6, could be said—if we are considering the creative process—to be the residue which was of such a nature that it couldn’t remain in the pure essence of the substance of love. In the creative process, fire is used as a symbol of what occurs. When a fire burns, ash remains; there is a residue remaining. As the fire burns in the pure substance of love, there is that which naturally falls into the next lower vibratory level, so that each subsequent level, as the fires burn, is the ash relative to the one higher, until we come finally down to the earth itself, which is the residue of everything that has happened in the creative process. We can see something moving, coming down from God in the creative process, but it isn’t a one‑way street. There is the working of the creative fires and the residue which results therefrom. But when the whole thing has been done and these various layers of residue are there, is the creative process going to quit? What would be the point? You just have a lump of something. It doesn’t work merely in one direction, even from the very start. There is what is represented by Jacob’s ladder, something ascending and descending. It’s all going on at the same time. There is a provision for ascension, so that the ash may not remain as ash.

We see something of this from the standpoint of the earth, the planet. Clearly there is a means here on the surface of the earth by which a transmutation is taking place. The mineral substance is being lifted up into what are considered to be animate forms of various sorts. There is an ascending process occurring. Substance is being lifted, the ash of the earth is being lifted into other configurations. As it is lifted the nature of the flesh of the earth, which was before seemingly an inanimate mineral, now becomes something else, much more resilient and flexible, and the forms into which it is lifted become progressively more complex. Here is some evidence, at the initial level of transmutation, of what may be called ascension, the means by which substance is being resurrected so that it need not remain ash. This cycle of ascension is going on and we have a responsibility in this area.

One can see, after reading Lord Exeter’s, words, what is required of us if we are going to take on this responsibility.  For one thing, an elevation of our consciousness to a level well above where it was forty-one years ago when he opened up this consideration; and, most important, being present and conscious as angels.  I will continue along these lines in my next post.  As always, I welcome comments from my readers and enjoy sharing others’ thoughts along these lines.  Until then,

Be love.  Be loved

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


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

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

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

  

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Sacred Design of the Body Temple

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

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

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

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

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

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

Ceremony of Ascension

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

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

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

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

Be love. Be loved.

Crucibles for Transmutation and Ascension, page 1

All Creation seeks to return to the Creator.

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

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

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

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

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

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

From THE UNIVERSAL ONE

THE ELEMENTS OF MATTER

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

THE CRUCIBLE YOU ARE

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

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

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

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

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

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

Be love. Be loved.

The Garden of Consciousness — “As Above So Below”

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

Fig trees provide an archway in our back yard paradise

Co-creation At Home

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

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

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

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

 

 

 

 

 

And here’s our back yard today!

The Garden of Eden and The Garden of Paradise

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Shining the Light of Love

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

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

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

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

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

Be love. Be loved.

Getting Back to Eden, part 5: The Process of Transformation 2

 

Is it not written in your law, ‘I have said, “You are gods”?’  —Yeshua 

Paradigm shifts have occurred in our consciousness rather frequently over the course of the last several decades, and innovations have emerged in the ways we do things.  In the way we relate to God, for example, we’ve gone from church affiliation and attendance to spiritual transformation by way of “paths” to enlightenment and Self realization; from being mere humans to angels incarnate in bodies that are temples of a living God; from awareness as humans seeking an experience of God to that of God seeking a fuller experience of our humanity, as expressed in the saying “I am God being Human.”

In the field of healthcare, we’ve gone from the medical model of treating the symptoms of disease to the holistic model of treating the whole person and addressing the cause; from physical medicine to “energy medicine,” embracing esoteric energy healing modalities; from running costly and invasive diagnostic tests to honoring the body’s innate intelligence and wisdom by reading its energy fields and meridian circuits via muscle-testing for first hand information from the body itself about its condition and need for intervention and/or nutritional support; and from reactive passive healthcare to proactive preventive wellness care. We’ve even found a way via bio-energetic inquiry to discern and treat the cause of dis-ease at the emotional and subconscious levels with “Neuro-Linguistic Programing,” an approach too innovative and subtle for the reductionist “fix the problem from outside-in” mindset. Ultimately, we’ve dared to transplant organs from one body to another, even clone living forms via genetic engineering and test-tube creation.

In the tech world we’ve gone from naturally endowed intelligence to artificial intelligence; from building structures with bricks and mortar to constructing matter at the atomic level with nanotechnology; from assembly-line manual labor to robotics; from land lines to cell phones, from writing letters to sending emails, and now texts; and from attending seminars and conferences to teleconferencing in virtual “face time” space. We’ve gone from doing research in a library to “Googling” just about anything we want to know.

In science and physics we’ve seen leaps upward and out into the macrocosm of space and downward into the microcosm of quantum physics. We’ve “progressed” from mechanical and chemical engineering to genetic engineering of plants, foods, and, God help us, our own species.

In a word, we’ve evolved in our consciousness — and in our identity — as well as in our expression and functions, from being “creatures of circumstance” to creators; from being “mere humans” to becoming gods in our own right.

Transformation, the changing of the outer form of things, has been the main event of the last sixty years. And now with this coronavirus pandemic, social distancing has isolated us from one another—coupled by job and economic disruptions, world-wide social transformation is underway. The last 40 years of the 20th Century were particularly marked by transformation, preparing us for radical changes in the new millennium. The most important and pivotal transformation underway is a spiritual one, more like a transmutation of our identity from human to divine.

SIGNIFICANCE AND HISTORY OF THE NUMBER 40  

It seems the number 40 carries the energy of change in numerology.  A Facebook friend posted this recently: “The Latin root of the word ‘quarantine’ is ‘forty.’ The official lock-down started March 23 and will likely end May 1st. That is EXACTLY 40 days.” She cited biblical events, such as the 40 days Moses stayed on Mount Sinai to receive the Commandments and the 40 days of his wandering in the wilderness with the children of Israel; and Jesus fasting in the desert for 40 days.  The optimum number of weeks for human gestation is 40, and the rest period for a woman after giving birth is 40 days.  Essentially it is the time needed for preparing a person, or people, to make a fundamental change, to let go of things we no longer need to live fully and move forward into a new beginning in a New Earth. 

TRANSFORMATION

Richard Heinberg sheds light on the process of transformation in MEMORIES AND VISIONS OF PARADISE, characterizing the personal transformation of Jesus and the Buddha as “opening a door between worlds.”

The process of transformation need not be arduous. Indeed, in some respects it is more play than work — though not the competitive, win/lose play of civilized adults, but more the spontaneous, mutually trusting, experimental, and ecstatic play of young children and wild animals. As psychologist O. Fred Donaldson puts it, “Play is nature’s way of triumphing over culture.”  If Paradise is our natural state of being, then the deepest and most compelling force at the core of the collective unconscious is one that is always urging us toward that state of equilibrium. As we deliberately work toward a future characterized by respect and care for Nature and toward the nurturing of love, forgiveness, compassion, and celebration in ourselves and in one another, our conscious efforts resonate with the pattern at the core of our being. Heaven and Nature rush to return to a condition of balance and accord.

It is also true that as we move in the transformational process, we are working against social conditioning that continually tends to divide us both from one another and from the very ground of our own being. Hence, the need for the spiritual quest, which in all its guises is essentially a process of cutting through the crust of ego that prevents us from experiencing and revealing our own innate paradisal character.

This quest is neither new nor unprecedented. It is neither more nor less than the archetypal hero’s journey, identified by Joseph Campbell as being central to every mythic tradition. Every culture remembers exemplary men and women who have accomplished inter­nal transformations, and who have left instructions by which others can do the same. While the details of the instructions may differ, all spiritual exemplars agree on the broad outline of the process. It consists, first, of a withdrawal from the world-as-it-is, and a deliberate act of purification. This is followed by a period of integration within the system of universal spiritual values. The process culminates in a final realization of unity with the ultimate Principle of all that is. While the details of the process are individual, the essential outline of the journey is always the same, as is the goal: Paradise — the realization of oneness with Heaven and Nature.

The heroic quest is fundamentally a symbolic journey, representing the progressive unfoldment of the hero’s transcendent character and destiny. Jesus and the Buddha are figures who accomplished the profound inner transformation by which a door was opened between worlds, and human society was led to a partially or temporarily restored condition. Ultimately, the records of their lives are metaphors for what must occur in the experience of anyone who takes up the quest.

In every hero myth, the first stage in the journey consists simply of hearing and responding to a call. The hero or heroine must realize that the world is in need of healing, and that his or her own actions will make a difference to others. For the Buddha, the call came when he was thirty years of age and first saw sickness, old age, and death. He was so profoundly moved by the suffering he saw that he stole away from his sleeping wife and child to seek the key to liberation from the universal human condition. For Jesus, the first awareness of the call came when he was only twelve years old. He left his parents and spent three days in the temple among the doctors, discussing theology. When his worried parents finally found him, he said simply, “Wist ye not that I must be about my Father’s business?”

As we lift our attention above our conditioned wants and fears long enough to become aware of the purposes of a greater Whole, we suddenly see the possibility that our lives could have significance beyond comfort and self-satisfaction. The call may be faintly sensed, or it may blare. In either case, a conscious decision must be made to either listen or shut it out. To ignore the call is to die to the purposes of life. But to listen and to accept the challenge of the quest requires a willingness to leave behind the ruts established for us by heredity and environment, and to explore unfamiliar territory. We cannot enter Paradise without leaving behind our present cultural or psychic envi­ronment.

The second stage of the quest involves coming to terms with a dragon, demon, or enemy. Seeing suffering, we seek its cause, and causes of human suffering are legion. At the beginning of this stage we may see a dragon that is external to ourselves — an immediate source of injustice and cruelty. We may decide that the dragon is embodied in a philosophy we detest, or in a person whose actions seem to cause others pain. Many people become fixed in this phase of the quest and never proceed further. Their lives are spent battling the demons of the world, which, even when apparently slain, seem to grow new heads and return to torment them again.

As long as we continue battling external demons, we are incapable of fully bringing peace to our world. Eventually, if we remain true to the call — if we continue to listen — we will come to understand that the real dragon is within us: all the problems of our world have been produced by tendencies present in ourselves. Until and unless our internal dragons can be dealt with, even the most valorous external battle cannot fully bear fruit. Some of the great heroes in religious literature seem to have realized this from the beginning. Both Jesus and the Buddha, for example, knew from the outset that the victory they sought was a triumph over their own lower natures. Gandhi, on the other hand, began his career with the belief that the dragon consisted entirely of governmentally enforced racism; only gradually did he come to see his own attitudes and behavior as the battleground for the forces of good and evil.

Once the dragon is recognized as being an internal force, a different kind of battle begins. This stage of the process, in which the hero is wrestling with his own inner demons, doesn’t seem especially paradisal. It involves the exposure of one’s weaknesses and the surrender of personal attachments. Paradoxically, it seems, one can only get to Paradise by being willing to go through hell. But this conflict, too, must come to an end. The resolution of the battle with the inner demon is represented in the story of Jesus’ temptations in the wilderness. Before Jesus began his public ministry, and after he had fasted in the wilderness for forty days, the Devil appeared to him. The Devil first offered Jesus bread, symbolizing personal fulfillment at the physical level; then he challenged Jesus’ authority; and finally he offered the kingdoms of the world, “if thou will fall down and worship me.” But Jesus, refusing physical desire, the need to prove himself, and personal ambition as motives for his behavior, replied, “Get thee hence, Satan!” For him, the demon was gone.

A similar story of the Buddha says that while he was sitting under the Bodhi tree, immediately before attaining enlightenment, he was tempted by the god-demon Mara. Amid both violence and offers of pleasure and power, he simply sat and remained calm, “like a lion seated in the midst of oxen.” Mara and his armies, frustrated, left in defeat.

The dragon or demon can be fully tamed only through consistent inner work over a period of years. Yet, there is an instantaneous quality to the essential transformation that eventually comes: at any time a sudden change of state may occur and Paradise will be present, if only for a moment. The hero tames the dragon not by fighting it, but by refusing to fight it — by facing it, courageously holding steady, and expressing the character of innocence and love. Suddenly, the hero realizes that Paradise has been there all along, unnoticed.

Even after the hero has momentarily achieved paradisal awareness, he must still learn to sustain and communicate that state. From this point on, he is certain that he has known the true and natural condition of human consciousness — the pearl of great price, for which the wise person will sell everything (Matthew 13:46).

After having developed the ability to consistently maintain paradisal consciousness, the hero returns to the mundane world with a healing balm. Having found Heaven, he must share it — which means sharing himself, his state of being. For the individual, the return is the culmination of the journey, but the quest is not complete until the world has been restored.

Richard is interviewed briefly in Michael Moore’s recently released film PLANET OF THE HUMANS, an hour-and-forty-minute documentary update on the present state of our world and our ill-placed hope in biomass, wind turbans and solar panels — well worth your time watching.

Hello Octogenerians! 

On a more personal note, I will join the elder generation of octogenerians and complete my 80th trip around the sun on May 20, 2020. There’s got to be a few 40’s in those numbers, as I have certainly gone through many changes in those eighty years. I have been greatly blessed by many life-long friends and clients over the years.  I thank you for following my blogs and sharing them with your friends.  Feel free to share your thoughts by email. Until my next post,

Be love. Be loved

Getting Back To Paradise, part 1: Purification First

“It may be that some little root of the sacred tree still lives. Nourish it then, that it may leaf and bloom and fill with singing birds.”  Black Elk

In the quiet stillness of these times, I will continue sharing my current stream of thought around the theme of “Paradise Remembered.” In this post I revisit Richard Heinberg’s MEMORIES and VISIONS of PARADISE to start bringing this series to a positive finale, starting with this promising passage: 

A new Paradise awaits, but humanity must first undergo a cathar­tic cleansing. Few prophets have looked beyond the day of Purification to describe the events of the restored Golden Age, for the world to come will be inconceivable in terms of the present one. With the return of Paradise, history — as a chronicle of wars and intrigue, of plots and villains — will be finished. Humanity and Nature, Heaven and Earth will once more be joined in peace and harmony as a new Creation-Time begins. 

PURIFICATION OF THE HEART

In the biblical story of the Fall, an angel with a flaming sword was placed at the entrance to Eden guarding the way to the Tree of Life, lest fallen Man partake of its fruit and live forever in his fallen state.  The angel represents the ONE I AM; the sword represents TRUTH; the fire represents the purifying SPIRIT OF LOVE. The story, of course, is a metaphor indicating that in order to return to Eden, we must pass through the fire of purification and prove that we can be true to the Truth of Love, true to our true Self.

The first order of business is the cleansing of the heart, especially of immune-crippling fear and shame. Buried deeply in the heart of humanity are fearful memories of a cataclysmic past in which the human race and all living things were nearly and literally wiped off the face of the earth, such as what occurred in the days of Noah with the Deluge.  We carry shame in our hearts for having brought this calamity, and all those that followed, upon our own heads by forgetting to live by the Law of One, and fear that calamity will happen again. It was said, however, that the Creator would not destroy the world again by water, and that this generation is “reserved unto fire.” What are some of the implications of this prophecy, and by what possible means would such a fiery cleansing take place?

THE CREATING PROCESS

In addressing these questions, I turn to a consideration of the Creative Process in which matter is drawn together for a season and then undone and recycled for future creative purposes.  Integration is an equal partner to dis-integration in this process—and their cycles run concurrently, only integration tends to be a bit more subtle, and dis-integration tends to gain a lot more attention.

As examples: devastating forest fires make news headlines, while new growth in their wake receives little if any media coverage.  Plagues, like the current pandemic, devastate our sense of security, along with the human population — although to little extent compared to the 1.4% current population growth rate — and the daily death toll makes leading story for the morning news. On the other end of the population spectrum, we’re less likely to see announcements of new births in our daily newspaper as we see obituaries. 

Ironically, while we all celebrate new births with congratulatory sentiment, we may harbor reservations about the wisdom of bringing a child into this turbulent and overpopulated world.  We are, after all, leaving our children a mess to clean up.  My concern for our grandchildren is that they will suffer painful hardship in the collapse of this un-civilized world—and I don’t think there’s any doubt remaining that this will come to pass, if not in our lifetime, in theirs.

On our walk a few days ago we met up with a young friend who, with his wife, have agreed not to have children and bring more human beings into this world. Such conscious thinking and wisdom are exemplary.

As a species, we do need to curb population growth, and the starting place is with individuals.  Family-planning is essential, with conception-and-birth control taking precedence over abortion.  For those who do not wish to bring more children into the world, adoption is a beautiful way to fulfill a couple’s desire to have children and a family. If we the people do not take this matter into our hands, the powers that be, that manipulate the masses for profit, will do it in ways that are ungodly and do irreversible damage to the genetics of our species. 

Dan Brown’s INFERNO may be fiction, but the reduction of the human population by means of a viral epidemic, or vaccinations, has been conceived in human consciousness, the matrix in which the patterns of human civilization are set, and out of which our world is born. That said, let us not energize that conception by focusing our mental judgments on it, nor on those “evil-doers out there,” lest the conceived possibility take on a life of its own and become our-worst-fears-realized.

The creating processes of integration and disintegration are unfolding continually.  The question I pose is this: “Is there a ‘critical mass’ in place on earth sufficient to move the Creating Process in a more dominantly integrative direction?”  I sense that we’re getting there, if we’re not there already.  

FOUR WORLD AGES COME AND GO

Historically, ages end with cataclysmic events. According to the Ancients, there have been four Ages in our history.  Richard Heinberg cites them:

World Ages

If the magical landscape fixes Paradise in space, its position in time is defined by its placement at the beginning of a series of world ages. We have already noted the Greek and Hindu conceptions of the ages or yugas of the world, respectively; there are also close parallels among other cultures. The Iranians, for example, knew four cosmic ages that, in a lost Mazdaean book, the Sudkar~nask, are referred to as the ages of gold, silver, steel, and “mixed with iron.” In the Iranian conception, as in the Greek and Hindu, each age is a step in the world’s deterioration, a process that is leading to a final apocalyptic cleansing.”

The Mayans counted their world ages as consecutive Suns­ — Water Sun, Earthquake Sun, Hurricane Sun, and Fire Sun — according to the nature of the catastrophe that closed the epoch. The Hopi also spoke of four worlds — Tokpela, Tokpa, Kuskurza, and Tuwaquchi — the first of which is described in paradisal terms.  Following their creation in the Tokpela world, the first people went their directions, were happy, and began to multiply. With the pristine wisdom granted them, they under­stood that the earth was a living entity like themselves. She was their mother; they were made from her flesh …. In their wisdom they also knew their father in two aspects. He was the Sun, the solar god of their universe …. Yet his was but the face through which looked Taiowa, their creator …. These universal entities were their real parents, their human parents being but the instruments through which their power was made manifest . . . . . 

THE END OF A WORLD AGE

We are the generation to see the end of the “mixed-with-iron” age and the beginning of the “Information Age”– the age of “Artificial Intelligence” or “AI.” That has such a foreboding sound to it.  Are we actually relegating our intelligence to the computer?  Sounds like a final step downward in the devolution of our species — from spiritual beings who had access to all knowledge — past, present and future — down to the level of these animal bodies with brains that have limited vision, and down further yet to the mineral kingdom where we hand over our “intelligence” to a computer silicon chip in which our vision and view of reality is determined by “data” rather than spiritual discernment.   

Returning to the question I posed earlier, by what possible means will this generation be cleansed by fire? Heinberg speaks to this question in the final chapters of his book. I will conclude with these excerpts in two or three posts.

To Get Back to the Garden

EDENIC CONSCIOUSNESS MAY BE RECOVERABLE by individuals in rare moments of spiritual insight. Perhaps nearly everyone glimpses Paradise at some instant during his or her lifetime. But is it also possible for all of us together to live in the Garden once again — to return and stay? This final chapter will offer two reasons for thinking that it is possible. We will see, moreover, how signs of strain and disintegration in the founda­tions of our present civilization, together with some intriguing developments at the growing tips of society, suggest that a new Golden Age may already be struggling to be born.

The Attainability of Paradise

The evidence of anthropology and archaeology may not prove (though it certainly does not deny) the former existence of a Golden Age — that is, of a unitary culture in which people were universally and continually telepathic, lived close to Nature, and possessed miraculous powers. But, as we saw in chapter 8, anthropological and archaeologi­cal discoveries have shown, almost beyond a doubt, that two of the most destructive aspects of civilization (the use and justification of violence as a means of social change, and the desire for dominance over other human beings and over Nature) were acquired only re­cently. The findings of archaeologists show that in the past human beings did live — and therefore in principle are capable of living — in peace and harmony both among themselves and with Nature.

Moreover, the evidence of psychology suggests not only that a subjective condition of oneness, peace, and innocence is attainable, but also that it is the natural and healthy mode of human consciousness. If the human body functions best in the absence of the ego-states of blame, fear, and resentment (as medical experiments show that it does), then the fact that we are living in an ego-based world, in which Paradise is the exceptional experience, must therefore be an unusual and temporary state of affairs.

If we were able to live in Paradise once, we ought to be able to do so again. And if the most natural and healthy way of life available to human beings is defined by the expression of the essential paradisal qualities of character and the subsequent experience of universal harmony, then what is natural should in principle also be attainable. In short, we may be designed to live in Paradise.

Why, then, do we routinely assume that Paradise is beyond our reach? Perhaps it is partly because we have an unrealistic concept of what that state is or should be. We tend to think of Paradise as a place or time in which all human desires are satisfied; since people’s desires tend to conflict, we therefore assume that Paradise could never actu­ally exist. But the Paradise of myth and vision is not a state in which conflicting personal desires are somehow all fulfilled. Rather, it is one in which all human desires and motives are completely subsumed within a larger creative purpose. If individual desires are satisfied in Paradise, this is only because it is the overwhelming desire of all individuals that the consummate accord of Nature and Cosmos be nourished and maintained.

The inhabitants of Paradise — whether in myths of the First Age or in near-death visions — are universally characterized by their expres­sion of specific values and qualities of character. And, as Aldous Huxley (among others) has shown, a comparative study of the relig­ions of the world reveals that these values and qualities — honesty, compassion, and love — are universal and innate. Whether it was a historical reality or not, Paradise exists in the eternal present as an image expressing our deepest sense of what is right and true about ourselves.

Looked at in this way, Paradise may be seen as serving a specific function, as a design for living embedded in the circuitry of human consciousness. All biological organisms, including human beings, contain elements of design. We know, for example, that the pattern of the DNA molecules in our cells governs the basic design of our physical bodies. Perhaps we also contain within us a neurological or psychic program for the optimal design of social and spiritual relations between ourselves, the Cosmos, and Nature — a design of telepathic oneness and interspecies communion that represents the goal toward which our individual and collective experience would naturally tend to unfold.

Provided there are no significant interferences, the design inher­ent in the DNA molecules in our cells is expressed automatically and accurately in the formation of our physical bodies. Perhaps the same is potentially true of the neurological design of Paradise: provided its expression is not blocked, the pattern of oneness with the universal currents of life, as well as of miraculous abilities, should be automati­cally and accurately reflected in our ordinary experience.

At present, however, it is not. As we have seen, nearly all of the world’s spiritual traditions agree that the innate paradisal design is being thwarted in its expression by certain now-universal patterns of attitude, thought, and behavior.

Could it be that simple?  Could Paradise be, as Scott Peck imaged, A World Waiting To Be Born ?  Awaiting our expression of it?  Of its Spirit?  Is the “fire” unto which this generation is reserved the fire of Spirit in expression through us?  The spirit of love, of truth and of life?  Energetically, cosmic conditions are just right for the birth of a new world and a new human race, with our conscious participation as “spiritual midwives,” as we travel with the planet and solar system, at breakneck speed, into uncharted waters in space.  Our once clouded vision is clarifying and expanding to encompass the image of a Golden Age coming down from God out of a New Heaven manifesting a New Earth.  Let us welcome it with joy and celebration.

Rise up, my love, my fair one, and come away. For lo the winter is past, the rain is over and gone; The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle is heard in our land. . . .  Make haste, my beloved, and be thou like to a roe or to a young hart upon the mountains of spices. (Song of Solomon

The Teacher taught that fear is cast out of the heart by “perfect love”— unconditional love consistently expressed in living.  Shame is cleansed by forgiveness. That’s one means of purifying the heart of humanity.  Another way is by the fire of nuclear fission.  But then there would be no flesh left with which to start over, as in the days of Noah and his family.  Let us opt for the fire of Love — and grant God his wish that none should perish but that all should come to enjoy life eternal in Paradise restored — for, as Black Elk encouraged, It may be that some little root of the sacred tree still lives. Nourish it then, that it may leaf and bloom and fill with singing birds.”

I will add this YouTube clip with Dr Bruce Lipton to this post as it alerts us all to an opportunity at hand to collectively create in our consciousness the vision of Paradise NOW and change our future. 

Until my next post,  

Be love. Be loved.
