What does one do while waiting for a hurricane to make land in the next few hours? Well, one can blog! So I will start composing my next blog post.
In the first two installments of this series, I detailed the anatomy and functional dynamics of the atom, indicating that it is a microcosmic model of creative relationships in true community, and suggesting that we might learn from this model in growing our communities as the New World of another Golden Age dawns.
I made the statement in the first post of this series that everything in the Universe orbits around a positive center of some kind, from the microcosm of the atomic world to the macrocosm of stars, galaxies and solar systems. Even the man-made world, with its many and diverse cultures and communities, revolves around an organizing and controlling hub comprised of various belief systems, traditions and, most prevalently, financial economic systems.
In the Eastern cultures, religious beliefs and tradition are at the center of community life. In the Western civilized world, a capitalistic economy powers the hub of human affairs. Capitalism—where money markets and market transactions control the economies of nations—shapes and dominates community life in many countries besides the USA. The most prominent ones are Canada, Chile, Germany, The UK, Japan, South Korea, Bangladesh. The most economical free capitalist countries are Hong Kong, Singapore, New Zealand and Switzerland. Some of the poorest capitalist countries are DR Congo, Mozambique, Uganda, Tajikistan, the Yemen, Haiti, Ethiopia, Tanzania, Kyrgyzstan, and Uzbekistan. Ironically, capitalism is the root cause of poverty.
The simple fact is, the creation of poverty is a product of our economic system. It is a necessary by-product of capitalism. It flows from the internal workings of the system, which allows a few rich owners of vast capital to extract the labor of its workers for a pittance. (Quora.com)
I feel fairly confident in saying that the economics of money is what powers the hub around which the wheel of human civilization revolves—and understandably so. Money, after all, is a symbol for life. It’s a substitute for life energy itself. It’s our contrived artificial means of connecting with the world of resource and sustenance, and with one another . . . even Mother Nature’s Cornucopia. You can’t get out of the grocery store with a basket of groceries without handing over the “fare of the land.” Now days that’s a plastic card . . . and that brings up another aspect of our monetary system, which is no longer backed by gold but by debt.
The money we owe credit card companies, mortgage lenders and banks in exchange for goods, services and housing is the tarnished “gold standard” upon which our economy is based . . . and it’s nothing but numbers in a computer, in virtual space. In other words, it doesn’t exist in real time and space. Well, for that matter, neither does gold and silver. It’s all an illusion made up of swirling vortices of atomic energy. Like it or not, aware of it or not, we live and function in a nuclear community—mostly unaware. There is no other way for anything to work and function in an orderly fashion except by the natural laws governing the atomic community. All things in the universe orbit around a positive center of some kind.
So, why not just drop the symbol of life energy in exchange for Life itself, for the thing represented by the symbol of money? We don’t really need the symbol when the Essence behind the symbol is freely available to us. Life itself can be the essential basis upon which we build our communities and function within them . . . ABUNDANTLY! WITH NO RESTRICITON OR DEBT! We simply share our life energy with one another, along with the fruits of our labors of love. We don’t need money to care for ourselves, for one another and for our planet. We simply need one another.
The problem has been our ex-polarity. We’ve made our external, physical creations the positive hub of control around which we revolve, and we’ve become totally responsive to our creations. Everything, including human beings, orbit around money—and in one percent of the population, around the possession and hoarding of money. We are turned inside out, trading Life itself for a symbol, our heritage for a mess of monetary porridge. We need to turn ourselves outside in. It’s what the word “repent” literally means: turn around. The Kingdom of Heaven is within us, where the King abides, where Love commands creation into existence. “Love is the Heart of Creation.”
I’m speaking of a Life-centered, Love-centered, Truth-centered nuclear community. With this thought in mind, I will share an excerpt from my book SACRED ANATOMY. In this chapter I meditate upon and write about the spiritual significance of the Pituitary Gland, the physical point of focus in the body temple for the presence and radiation of the Spirit of the Womb, aka the Spirit of Truth. This was written two decades ago as we entered the New Millennium.
A Collective Body
Whether we are aware of it or not, our function on Earth greatly impacts the balance of creation throughout the solar entity, just as the function of the Pituitary determines the balance of energy and chemistry in our bodies. How we use this sacred seal is crucial to the outworking of creative cycles throughout the body, as well as our relationship with others in our worlds. It is designed to honor and give focus for the Spirit of Truth. We use this seal correctly when our passion is for the truth of love in our momentary living.
It is the prayer of many who have vision and who offer themselves as spiritual mentors these days that we all become conscious of our true identity as angelic beings and aware of our mission and heavenly purpose so that we might play our parts with genuine authority in the collective role of wise stewardship and loving dominion over the balance of Creation on this planet. A global awakening to this reality in the collective has occurred over the past few decades.
What is being called for today, I feel, is a certain meekness of mind, a willingness born of true humility to be teachable and to explore together what is required of us during these historic and crucial days of completion and new beginnings as we move into the new millennium. When the mind is meek and teachable, still and open to explore new possibilities, the heart may feel free to open up and start trusting its perceptions and, more importantly, sharing its perspectives and understanding of how life works. It is with the heart’s discernment that we feel our way through the darkness in this world. It is with her understanding and perspectives, based on spirit rather than structure, that we will forge a path to the “world waiting to be born,” Scott Peck envisioned and wrote about. This is what true vision is.
It has been said, “Where there is no vision, the people perish.” It also follows that where there is vision the people flourish. It is important, then, that those with vision, those who know and know that they know, by virtue of their own living the truth of love, come forward to shed light into the darkness of human misunderstanding and confusion. This is happening on a grander scale now than ever before. Everywhere I turn I see individuals speaking their truth with authority and assurance, even if not with pristine clarity as yet. There is much more to come in the way of purity of heart and clarity of understanding. There’s no need to put this process on hold, however, until the heart is fully purified. As each one puts his and her piece of truth into the collective container of consciousness, the picture continues to clarify for all. It is the shining of one’s light that the capacity for shining is transformed and clarified.
To use a biblical metaphor, one does not light a candle and place it under a bushel but in a place where it can be seen by men and where it will light up the entire room. We all have a part to play and everyone’s part, without exception, is essential to the whole picture and to the inevitable outcome of the cycles of change presently underway on Earth. No one will remain untouched or unchanged by these re-creative cycles that are bringing us all together as One Body for the One Spirit we all love and seek to serve more fully.
In our love for the LORD our God and for one another, the true design of spiritual governance through a pattern of harmonic focalization would naturally begin to be unveiled and fleshed out on a basis that is acceptable to all who keep their I single in the One Spirit whose design it is. That Spirit is not an elusive, inaccessible entity, but rather is closer than breath and differentiates itself through each one of us, as it does in the natural world around us, in patterns of focalization. Life is an organizing force that brings order and harmony out of chaos and confusion. The Universe attests to its creative genius.
We are drawn toward—and we draw to ourselves—those with whom we naturally resonate in spirit at the core of our hearts. This is what I mean by “harmonic focalization.” To use a musical metaphor, some of us sing melodies in the life of a community and others of us sing harmonies around them. Those of us who normally sing harmonies sometimes find ourselves singing melodies with others, who perhaps usually sing melodies, gravitating toward us to harmonize—or coordinate—their parts with us. This is the organism rather than the organization model. It’s the way things work in the kingdom of heaven to achieve anything genuine and organic.
Nothing could be achieved in the physiology of the human body but anarchy and pandemonium without the focus of the Spirit of Love in the Pineal Body and the nurturing coordination of the Spirit of the Womb in the Pituitary gland. So is it with the collective body of humanity. Where spirit is focalized and its differentiations coordinated in a pattern of control and design, the collective body temple comes together as a unified expression of divine love to provide a Home for God on Earth. This, I believe, is the healing the Body of God on Earth is in dire need of today, a process that appears to be underway.
I see a collective body temple rising in our midst today composed of incarnate beings of light the world around, men and women who have remembered who they are and why they are here, who give their utmost care and attention to the sacred in everyday life. All are invited to play a role in this temple, be it large or small. The Earth itself is being recognized once again for the Holy Temple it provides for the continual praise and worship of the Creator in this Solar Entity, this Cathedral of the living God.
Speaking of individuals emerging who carry a current of love for truth in their writings, poet and author Diana Durham’s recently released book The Return of King Arthur, which is written around the theme of the quest for the Holy Grail, a myth full of symbolism that points to the reality of human experience, past, present and future, may well be the single most important book at the dawn of the New Millennium, certainly among the top ten. The author names, like no other author I have read to date, where we have been and how we have been wounded, where we are now and where we are headed—and naming the wound is the first step toward healing. Her chapter eleven, “The Chalice of Collective Sovereignty,” is a must-read for every awakened human being on the planet at this time of global transformation and transition out of the old and into the New Era. I simply cannot resist sharing just a few of the many morsels of her wisdom here in this consideration of the collective body, and as a fitting closing to our meditation on the roles the Pituitary Gland and Spirit of the Womb play in our worship of God in these temples.
(Will be continued in the next post of this series.) Until my next post,
Be love. Be loved.
