On Human Relations, part 3, page 4: Man-Woman Equality

I think what we see here is more about cosmic energies, driven by love, seeking a balance in human relationships and affairs and equal partnership in co-creating a beautiful world.

My Chorale PicIn my last post, I offered my perspective and take on the seemingly phenomenal explosion of same-sex relationships. Much of the “explosion,” however, seems to be more about public awareness due to social media than actual increase in terms of numbers. Homosexuality has likely been around since the separation between man and woman in the Garden of Eden. Biblical references abound in both Old and New Testament scriptures. I think what we see here is more about cosmic energies, driven by love, seeking a balance in human relationships and affairs and equal partnership in co-creating a beautiful world.

As I understand their nature, cosmic energies are both positive and negative, or masculine and feminine, and that is by divine design in order to foster Creation itself. It is the Law of Love at work. Positive energy is by nature radiant, a masculine characteristic, and negative energy is by nature responsive, a more feminine characteristic. Creation involves equal partnering between masculine and feminine energies.  It is governed by the Law of Balance, which Walter and Lao Russell wrote so eloquently about in their books I’ve been reviewing and referencing in this blog series. If that partnering is prevented between men and women — as is surely the case in today’s male-female relationships where the man lords it over the woman yet in a social order that denies women equal privilege, pay and participation in decision making and governance — then these cosmic energies, which obey only divine order and the cosmic laws of Creation, will rise up to partner in same-sex relationships. Ideally, these co-creative energies seek to partner in a balanced way in each individual human being, where they are equally operative, and will do so as the individual pursues and completes a spiritual path that leads to true Self awareness and activation.

Mind you, these individuals are “same-sex” only in physical appearance and not in spiritual or vibrational essence and reality. These energies have no persona, no respect of person. Nor do they have ego, either male or female.  In other words, they are not the person. They are cosmic energies, pure and simple, and they belong together bringing forth Creation as equal partners in a balanced relationship.

The problem arises out of our insistence on identifying with them. Our correct identity is as a Human Being. I am a Human Being incarnate in a male form. My wife is a Human Being incarnate in a female form. We were drawn together by Love, as are most couples. It has been our conscious choice to find a balance in our relationship and to learn what it means to partner in life. This “Work” is an ongoing process.

This balance is obvious between Walter and  Lao Russell when you read their writings. They worked at it and succeeded in achieving man-woman equality. Jesus and Mary Magdalene established the pattern of spiritual intimacy and equality that manifested itself in their mental and physical relationship. They were full partners in their shared ministry — and it was a shared ministry, as I will write about when I review Cynthia Bourgeault’s timely and provocative book The Meaning of MARY MAGDALENE — Discovering the Woman at the Heart of Christianity

But let’s read a little more from Lao’s chapter on Man-Woman Equality. At the end of this chapter, Lao takes an action step toward creating a movement in the USA that could change the status quo.

In her own words . . .

Our present unbalanced civilization is scientifically impossible to endure. It is fast disintegrating even now and its decay has accelerated very dangerously since 1900. It is so badly unbalanced in so many departments and institutions that any attempt to balance all of them simultaneously would not be effectual, besides which there is not time to do it that way. The most necessary and the most hopeful one of the unbalanced conditions is man-woman equalization.

This essential to world happiness could become a living flame which would illumine the whole world with a new light if every woman started immediately to “do something about it,” aided by every man who believed in it. Such a movement can succeed only if organized into strength of numbers. One alone can do but little but if everyone joined together in a multiple ONE UNIT of twenty millions or more before the next election, it might be quite possible to make the first great step in that direction by electing many women senators and congresswomen, and even the Vice President for the next Presidential term. Such a world innovation adopted in this country would arouse the whole world of women in other countries where such an innovation would be impossible at the present time. This country should lead the world in this respect as it has in so many respects.

The way to do this speedily and powerfully is for you and every woman everywhere, to call a few friends to gether and form themselves into a unit of the Man-Woman Equalization League. It must be started by
women but every man who is in sympathy with the movement should become an equal member of it. Every truly great man will immediately realize its import and become an enthusiastic working member of it. That UNITY is its very purpose

The League never got off the ground. However, one can go to the Foundation website and find there ways to participate in various programs and projects. I will end this excerpt with a few final words from Lao.

The appeal for this organization is so strong that its growth would become millions in one year if every woman would but realize that women have the power to save the world from another chaos by merely asserting themselves as equal inheritors of the earth and of the business of managing all earthly affairs equally with men. . . . 

When women once realize this saving power which is theirs, and the responsibility which is theirs, this movement will become the mighty crusade which it ought to be. . . .

It is hardly necessary to call your attention to the power which is vested in so many million votes.Unless something of this nature is initiated at once we shall go farther and farther into the chaos which a man-made world is so fast falling into. It is scientifically impossible for peace and happiness to come to such an unbalanced world as this is, where the physical values are so preponderant over spiritual values. We have either got to balance the FatherMother basis of Creation or perish over and over again until we dobalance it.

I therefore say to every woman who reads this book: Will you start today to dedicate yourself to this world service? And I also say to every man: Will you help woman to give birth to this man-woman equalization movement for world unification and peace, and become a member of the Man-Woman Equalization League?

I will leave you with this video interview of Lao Russell.

On Human Relations, part 3 page 2: Man-Woman Equality

My Chorale Pic

With the recent church shooting  in Charleston, South Carolina by a twenty-one-year-old man that abruptly ended nine lives, my thoughts turn to questioning the home life of this deeply troubled and misguided young man and the culture of racial prejudice into which he was born.

We’ve been considering The Law of Balance in this series on Human Relations. Here’s a case where that law has long been ignored in this young man’s family life, but more so in his social environment. Violence has its roots in the family unit and in our culture of hate and prejudice, particularly here in the South. Gun control is not where we need to go to fix this problem, and jailing or executing the shooter brings no healing to this wounded human being.  Only compassion and understanding will begin to heal him and eradicate prejudice and hate from our culture. He needs to be taken in by society and bathed in love, not shut out and disposed of by our penal system. That system needs a complete re-thinking and re-ordering. The church members were as quick to forgive this young man as they were open to welcome him into their congregation. That’s a huge step toward healing, both the traumatized congregation and the young man. That attitude needs to be reflected in society as a whole and somehow in our penal system.

*  *  *  *

In the previous post, I ended the excerpt from Lao Russell’s book, GOD WILL WORK WITH YOU BUT NOT FOR YOU, with this brief but poignant paragraph:

Man has always crucified love on the cross of his own self-glory by the killing of men; and women have always wept at the foot of the cross, as they wept when men crucified the Nazarene while all but one of His disciples who professed to love Him, deserted Him.

I then closed my post with thoughts that arose from reading what Lao had to say here concerning the crucified Nazarene, offering that there were actually three of His disciples who stood at the foot of the cross: Mary Magdalene, his wife and soul mate, his mother Mary, and John the Beloved with whom Jesus endowed His mantle of authority. I then suggested that Jesus and Mary Magdalene had fulfilled their mission and purpose on earth by restoring the union between Man and Woman, a union that had been fragmented since Adam blamed Eve for their disobedience. That failure on the part of Adam to accept responsibility for his action but rather place all the blame on Eve drove a wedge between them. It also separated them from the Creator, but only in consciousness and awareness.

With this severance of the unity between these two earthly partners in Creation and between Man and his Creator, the world as we knew it in the beginning began to change, as did our perception of the world. It became a hostile place to live where survival and the killing of animals and of one another became the way of existence on the planet. Man became the hunter and gatherer, as well as protector of his territory, and woman became the home maker. Love was lost in our fall from grace as fear darkened our hearts and clouded our vision. And that is how it has remained to this very day.

Lao continues to share her perspectives and understanding—which some of my readers may find antiquated. This was written, after all, in 1955.  Much has changed in our consciousness since then. I should hope so anyway.

All of this is quite natural. It could hardly be otherwise, for man in his unfolding (or evolving) remembered the fighter spirit of his primate days of taking, while not realizing that the woman spirit of giving was gradually awakening in him a keener desire for mental mating and the spiritual unity of the equal Father-Motherhood of balanced mating. The hardest lesson which man must learn during the long ages of his journey is that God made man and woman equal with one another in order that they should manifest divided love by equal interchange in their givings and regivings. God’s whole purpose for dividing His spiritual Self into pairs of fathers and mothers is to dramatize His Love nature by the romance of equal and opposite interchange of love. The romance of awakening love is far greater than either its mental or physical interchange. Every expression of mating is empty without the romance of love itself. Romance is love-awareness without which there can be no complete happiness in any mating.

The Cosmic drama of Creation is a romance which all mankind is perpetually transforming to comedy and tragedy as it eternally seeks romance without knowing the path which leads to it. Through the romance of balanced interchanging of love between fathers and mothers they find unity which alone gives to them the ecstasy of the divine nature of God.

Physical sex interchange has been first in the desires of mass-man. Mental sex interchange is rare, while romance starves in a world which would give all else for just one hour of it. That is the lesson of life which all must learn who search for the peace and happiness which will alone bring rest from world tensions. The world has never learned it because the senses of man have never let him know the real meaning of either love or romance.

The world of divided humans must some day know that God’s divided universe is an electrically sex-divided dramatization of CAUSE and EFFECT. The CAUSE is Mind-desire for expressing static idea through intechanging motion. The EFFECT is what happens because of that division and the necessity of interchanging. CAUSE is, therefore, oneand EFFECT is always two. The lesson of life is to learn how to so balance the interchanging between the two halves of every effect that all EFFECT is completely canceled out in complete sexlessness by their balanced unity.

God’s motive as Master-Playwright of His Cosmic drama is the love urge of the mating idea expressed physically by the uniting of bodies to void the physical tensions of the sex urge by balancing them, and thus reproduce other bodies. It is also for the purpose of expressing the love urge in its mental and spiritual expression by eliminating the mental tensions of separateness. This is accomplished by uniting spiritual mates for creating spiritual idea.

A mental sex relation is for the purpose of creating idea, while the physical sex relation is for the purpose of creating body forms of mentally conceived ideas.

That is why any woman and any man who have harmonious spiritual relations with each other, such as a mother and son, or good friends, or business partners, can multiply power in each other very much more. than any two men, or any two women could possibly do.

That is why any organization which consists solely of men, whether it be an industry, a club, or the cabinet of the President of the United States, or of other organizations composed of women only, necessarily creates unbalanced structures in which there can never be complete unity.

That is why this man-made world is so badly unbalanced and disunited. Its male qualities are so preponderant that it has made a civilization which operates like a flywheel whose shaft is badly offcenter. A woman-made world would be just as unbalanced. Its preponderance of female qualities would make it equally disunited.

If you look into the life history of any great man you will find a woman in it who had a tremendous influence upon the creative powers which accounted for his greatness. It may be more than one woman, such as his mother, and his wife, or sweetheart, or dearly loved friend. No matter who that woman, or those women were, the basis of their interchange with him must first be love mentally
expressed. A spiritual union between any man and woman is of ten-thousand times more value than love physically expressed without the spiritual.

The romance is in the awakening of love in one another, which is not a one-time event when our hormones are beginning to kick in. It’s has to be an ongoing event.  

Love is not objective, nor can it be possessed. The woman awakens love in the man, and the man awakens love in the woman. The romance of it is in the awakening, not in the consummation. It is the awakened ability to love which counts, and not the acquisition of the object which has awakened it, nor in any physical contact whatsoever. A woman may not even be aware that she is deeply loved, and the man who loves may never even exchange a word with her. Where love is spiritual it uplifts, exalts, enriches and ennobles.

Where sex is purely physical it debases and defiles. Millions have ruined themselves through physical sex expression which was not spiritually balanced. The roué [debauched person] is despised where the parent is honored. Whole civilizations have been utterly destroyed by the sex debauchery of incest and promiscuity. Wherever spiritual sex-mating is preponderant over the physical there is then the beauty and glory of the power which men and women can alone
know who have that unity which comes to those “whom God hath joined together.”

Any man and woman who are thus spiritually and physically balanced multiply their unified power by eight—not two. Two separate, disunited potentials are only two, but when two potentials act as one their power multi-plies in the ratio of the cube. In other words, when two completely united, balanced mates act as one they do not add their two powers together to equal two, they multiply
them in the ratio of gravitation mathematics, which are three dimensional.

There is no lesson so hard to learn, or of such great import, as the long lesson of learning how to interchange all spiritual and physical divisions of effect equally in order to unify them, and thus make two unbalanced conditions become one. A balanced life, home, business, community, nation or world of nations is possible only by learning that great lesson by the hard way of experience until it is put into practice.

An approximation of balance will not suffice for complete happiness. A man who still insists upon being “master in his own home,” cannot have a happy home, even though he provides for his family generously and is a model husband in every other respect. With such a condition contentment is possible but romance is utterly stifled. A residue of unbalance still remains which makes it impossible to cancel out all actions and reactions by balancing them as a businessman balances his books constantly. A business could not succeed if a daily deficit made it impossible to balance its books, nor can a family succeed in being all that a family should where a constant tension exists which cannot be utterly voided.

The wife would try to assure herself she was happy by seeing the good points in her husband. Something would constantly be happening which would not happen if the home was a balanced one. A daughter might marry against her better judgment because of the tension which could not be eliminated, or a son might leave home where he otherwise would not. Unity cannot exist where tensions hold two apart. They will always be two until residual tensions are balanced. The two will then be ONE.

In countries where their women are forced to accept infidelities as a matter of course there can never be the happy home life enjoyed by those nations where infidelities are the exception and not the rule. Under such conditions unity is utterly impossible, because romance is impossible.

I will leave it there and leave you to ponder, and perhaps comment on, what you have read. We will continue along this vein in the next couple of posts.

On Human Relations, part 3: . . . . . . Man–Woman Equality

My Chorale Pic

Let’s talk about the relationship between man and woman. I will open the consideration with an excerpt from Lao Russell from her beautiful book “GOD WILL WORK WITH YOU BUT NOT FOR  YOU.”  It follows quite naturally her husband’s article in my previous post on the Law of Balance. Mind you, this was written in 1955, and it is still current with world conditions of today. Enjoy her simplicity and clarity.

Man-Woman Equality

This chapter is addressed to the many advanced thinkers who are fully aware of the great world danger which civilization is now facing.

All such mystic thinkers also know that civilization need not fall if we but know how to unite mankind into one Being with but the one purpose of manifesting the love principle of Nature, instead of the fear and hate principle which he now manifests.

God’s universe is balanced. That is why it is unified and continuous. That is why it will endure forever and cannot fall.

Man’s universe is badly unbalanced. That is why it is disunited and transient. That is why it must repeatedly fall.

When grave danger confronts anyone, or the world, one wants to know what to do about it. If he does not know what to do to save himself he is helpless to avoid the danger.

World thinkers can save civilization if they know more about God’s ways and processes which alone can save man if applied in time. The great cause of world unbalance is the disunity caused by the practice of inequality in God’s divided pairs which He created equal. These inequalities are many. They could not be balanced in centuries–and that would be too late.

The principle inequality which is again destroying civilization is the man-woman inequality. That is the prime cause of world failure which underlies all other causes. That cause could be remedied in time to unite the whole world as one if world thinkers, both men and women, would do something about it now, right now before the next election takes place, and not twenty years from now.

The world resists change. It insists upon continuing the same old mistakes until the resultant suffering becomes too heavy. It has got to change, however, in respect to its man-woman equality or be self-condemned to another state of chaos.

The world cannot change unless individuals change. Each man must equalize woman spiritually in his own life, in his home, his business and his government. Until woman is thus exalted the tensions of inequality will destroy every civilization which man attempts to build alone.

Every woman should insist upon mental equality with men in all governing and managerial capacities, and when competent women are nominated for high office, I am confident men would feel it their duty and pleasure to vote for them to begin equalization of international affairs. I say this because each time I have mentioned this man-woman idea to a great man he has wholeheartedly and enthusiastically been in accordance with this principle.

It will always be impossible for humans to build an enduring civilization until it equalizes its man-woman Mind power. If world thinkers would but realize that, they would be aroused to action in beginning to bring equalization into being. God created this world for men and women, not for men alone, nor for women alone. He created them equally as mates just as He created all pairs and all forces equally. This is an electrically sex-divided universe. The two electrical workers which create this universe are male and female. Each are equal. One does as much as the other in creating every particle of matter in the universe. Without that electrical equality in expressed force we would have a very wobbly, and dangerously unbalanced universe of badly distorted forms.

We will continue to have a badly distorted, disunited and wobbly civilization until men and women world thinkers begin to equalize the two sexes so that there can be a marriage of unity in the world which will produce balance in world actions instead of distortions.

Motherless children vitally need a mother. No matter how sincerely or eagerly a father tries to become both mother and father, he is never able to fulfill both necessities.

This motherless world likewise needs a mother. The father is trying to fulfill both offices but the more he tries to function as both, the greater is the disaster to the world family.

Lao continues in an historical vein to describe how we have evolved from primitive man.  In that era, the hunter-gatherer was the male’s identity and role, while the female’s identity was centered around food preparation and clothing fabrication from skins. Survival was the prime concern that shaped the life-style of this primitive emerging civilization. This inevitably led to killing of other tribesmen when survival was at stake, leaving the women to “weep at the foot of the cross,” as Lao put it in Biblical context, referring of course to the crucifixion of Jesus, a custom that has survived to this day of war-mongering men who kill one another to preserve their own version of “freedom,” again leaving women to weep at the side of their men’s coffins.

In time, she goes on to say, man eventually began to “discover woman as a mental mate and took her to wife and consulted with her, but condescendingly.” This recognition alone elevated the whole status of civilization to higher levels. She then made this significant observation:

The country which gave the greater recognition to the matehood idea of man and woman progressed rapidly beyond those countries which glorified man and suppressed their women. Likewise, every individual man who learned to love a woman because of her mental matehood with him, as well as her physical, progressed beyond all men who looked upon her as woman alone.

This level of recognition, Lao points out, merely gained women a concession and not an equal right alongside men. Even in winning the right to vote, it was nothing more than the right to vote for man.  Men remained master and lord, the one who must be obeyed.

Pagan man made man the master of women, and ruler of the world. Even the pagan God concept was male-and still is. God, the Father, has never been the generally accepted Father-Mother of His equally divided fathers and mothers of Creation. Man the conqueror, the killer of man for the possessions of man, the pirate and trader in slaves, the exploiter and builder of empires, built this world in his own carnal image. He built it for man and glorified himself as the killer of the sons of man, while women wept.

Man has always crucified love on the cross of his own self-glory by the killing of men; and women have always wept at the foot of the cross, as they wept when men crucified the Nazarene while all but one of His disciples who professed to love Him, deserted Him.

TWO WOMEN AND ONE MAN STOOD WITH JESUS TO THE END

There were actually three who stood at the foot of the cross: Jesus’s soul mate and wife Mary Magdalene, John the Beloved upon whose shoulders the Master place His mantle of authority, and Mary the mother of Jesus. It is significantly telling that there were two women and only one man.  John the Beloved was more than just any man.  He was a well integrated Man with both masculine and feminine energies balanced in his humanity. And Mary Magdalene was more than just any woman.  She also was an integrated human being with her masculine energies just as available to her as her feminine, which is why Peter and some of the other male apostles didn’t like her. She was the Apostle of apostles, the only one of his disciples who knew Jesus at his core being.  There was no separation between them, even after he ascended to his Father. Wherever Mary went Jesus went. Whenever she spoke Jesus spoke.

I truly believe, as author Cynthia Bourgeault goes to great and profound ends to present in her timely and important book The Meaning of MARY MAGDALENE — discovering the woman at the heart of Christianity, that this reuniting of man and woman was the sole purpose of their mutual and timely visitation, and at a most critical and pivotal moment in the history of Mankind.

The Great Redemption and Reparation has been accomplished. The broken relationship between man and woman has been repaired. Mankind has been redeemed from its state of separation and war between the sexes.  What’s keeping us from enjoying our salvation and getting on with life as it was intended and designed to be from the beginning and restored to its natural divine order and beauty by Jesus and Mary Magdalene?

Now there’s a book every Christian needs to read . . . would be restored to sanity by reading.  For the state of Christianity today is one of utter insanity and impotence. Little wonder people are leaving their father’s religion behind.

OUR HOUSE IS FALLING DOWN AROUND US

It’s time we took a closer look at the state of our humanity.  We are a race divided, and we will not withstand the apocalyptic changes that are afoot for all of Mankind. And by apocalyptic I mean what the word implies literally: REVELATION.  All things both good and evil are even now being revealed via social networking and the blessed internet. What a timely gift that is proving to be! Check out this video by THRIVE about the current state of the global economy and the banking system. It’s all collapsing around itself. The man-made currency system, made for men by men, is bankrupt and in utter failure . . . and  I don’t mean to insinuate that women have not been involved and behind those men pushing them on to make more money for greater security and wealth. No, both sexes bear equal responsibility for this deplorable state of our economy and our world . . . and our days are numbered.  Brace yourselves for a revelation of the truth.  For even as an old world is collapsing, a new and true world is emerging. The media just doesn’t find that news profitable.

Because of the timely and crucial nature of the topic in this chapter in Lao Russell’s book, I intend to share the bulk of the remaining chapter in the next couple of posts.  I will publish them a week apart.  Thank you for reading and following my blogs. I would love to share your own thoughts on these matters. Write me.

On Human Relations, part 2: The Law of Balance

 “The Law of Balance is the Law of Love upon which the universe is founded.” (Walter Russell)

My Chorale PicI’ve been away from my blogging for a few weeks due to preparations for a workshop that had to be cancelled for close family health reasons. I hope you enjoyed my last posts on this blog and on my Health Light Newsletter on the theme of balancing and harmonizing the chakras and endocrine energy fields. If you haven’t had an opportunity to read those posts, they are still available in the archives.

In this post we will continue our consideration of human relations, sharing some of the wisdom of Walter and Lao Russell. In Part 1, we started addressing the question: What is Love? In this post I will focus the consideration on balance, the essential ingredient of all successful, creative, and, therefore, healthy relationships.

Reading Walter and Lao’s books – THE MESSAGE OF THE DIVINE ILIAD and GOD WILL WORK WITH YOU BUT NOT FOR YOU respectively – I was profoundly touched by this couple’s powerfully creative and fruitful relationship.  They were truly in Love together.  I would like to take this opportunity to share with my readers excerpts from these books that will give you a feel for the cosmic basis of their relationship. I hope you will enjoy reading them as much as I do. Rarely does one find clear expressions of universal truths in timeless words. I love that about Walter and Lao’s writings.

THE LAW OF BALANCE

THE LAW OF BALANCE is the Law of Love upon which the universe is founded. This law is given to man for his coming renaissance of greater comprehension. It is, of all laws, the inclusive and the most simple. It consists of but three words. These three words are the very foundation of all our material existence, all phenomena of matter or interchange between humans, economically, socially and spiritually.

I will read to you from THE DIVINE ILIAD:

“Great art is simple. My universe is great art, for it is simple.

“Great art is balanced. My universe is consummate art, for it is balanced simplicity.

“My universe is one in which many things have majestic measure; and again another many have measure too fine for sensing.

“Yet I have not one law for majestic things, and another law for things which are beyond the sensing.

“I have but one law for all My opposed pairs of creating things; and that law needs but one word to spell it out, so hear Me when I say that the one word of My one law is 

                                                  BALANCE.

And if man needs two words to aid him in his knowing of the workings of that law, those words are

                                BALANCED INTERCHANGE.

If man still needs more words to aid his knowing of My one law, give to him another one, and let those three words be

                      RHYTHMIC BALANCED INTERCHANGE.”

Balance is the foundation of all human relations, of the universe itself. The stars of heaven move in obedience to it. They cannot do otherwise. Cosmic disaster of untold dimension would follow such disobedience. The starry universe is so absolute in its balance that the movement of a dewdrop on anyone planet necessitates the readjustment of the orbits of all the stars of heaven to that microcosmic event. Because of that law all happenings are universal. Any action anywhere is extended for repetition everywhere. All motion is as omnipresent as the Light of God is omnipresent. All effect is universal.

God is balance. From the stillness of His balance in the unconditioned One Light, He extends His balance to the conditioned universe of motion as two opposite unbalanced conditions of two lights which seek balance through each other.

“NATURE NEVER TAKES THAT WHICH IS NOT GIVEN”

Oppositely-conditioned pairs in Nature seek balance through each other by repeatedly giving all that each has to give to the other in rhythmic sequences. In Nature this process continues perpetually because in Nature all givings of one are perpetually balanced by equal regivings of the other. Nature never takes that which is not given.

This universe is founded upon love as manifested in the giving of one opposite to the other for regiving. The earth gives its forests to the heavens and the heavens give them back again to earth for equal regiving. Every dewdrop given by the heavens is equally regiven to the heavens by the earth.

Equal interchange between opposite conditions manifests the love principle of balance upon which God’s universal body is founded. Whatever is true of God’s universal body is true of man’s body. It is the equality of balance between the giving and regiving of Nature which makes its transactions perpetual. The lack of the love principle of rhythmic balanced interchange in the transactions of men is the reason for the ills of the body and for the disasters which make continuance of relations between men impossible.

The seller of goods is also a buyer. If the seller gives less to his customers than the value of what he charges, he deprives his customer of the ability to regive that which the seller needs to again become a seller. By sacrificing the good-will which is the foundation of continuance in any business, the love principle has been subtracted from the transaction in the measure of inequality of interchange.

Neither man nor nation can continue an interchange of relations upon a harmonious basis of multiplying power when the universal love principle is violated. The law of balance is absolute. He who breaks that law will be equally broken by it.

If each of the two conditions which forms the basis for every transaction between pairs of opposites in Nature can be kept in balance with the other, the resultant effect is good. When they are out of balance with each other, the resultant effect is bad.

Good and bad — sin and evil — measure the degree in which all pairs of oppositely-conditioned effects of motion are either in balance with each other or out of it. In all our human relations we, ourselves, make our own good and bad, or evils and sins, by our desires and decisions to act either in or out of balance with Universal Law.

There is no sin or evil in Nature, for Nature observes the law of balance. Every unbalanced effect in Nature is balanced by its opposite unbalanced effect.

The play of Creation consists of dividing all ideas into two opposite parts. What each half does in relation to the other half constitutes the play. Such divisions into halves are male and female—buyer and seller—positive and negative—compression and expansion, and countless other divisions of ideas into unbalanced pairs for the purpose of expressing those ideas.

Whatever these opposed pairs do in any transaction results in an effect. All human relations are thus divided, and transactions between humans results in either good or bad effects which we call happiness or misery in accordance with whether the transaction is balanced or unbalanced. Man can make whichever he chooses. He can make happiness, success, wealth, friendship and health only by obeying the law. He can never find them by disobeying the law.

For aeons mankind has been breaking the law in an endeavor to find happiness, wealth and power. Civilization has been built by the unbalanced power of might-over-right. Nations have enriched themselves by impoverishing other nations, expecting to find happiness by giving misery—expecting to attain power by depriving others of power. Without any exception, those who have broken the law have been equally broken by the law. This war-broken world of today is the result of yesterday’s breaking of the law.

IT’S ABOUT CONSCIOUS LIVING, ISN’T IT?

It is a challenge to be consciously aware — “mindful” is the word these days — of what I am doing day in and day out. For example, we go to the grocery store so frequently that it has become part of our routine in life. So routine is this activity that it can almost be done without thinking. I simply read my grocery list, collect what I need into my cart and check out at the cashier’s counter. I bring my groceries home, put them away and take them out later to prepare a meal. I sit down to eat my meal then rise to wash my dishes and clean up the kitchen. All this I can do, have done, without giving a single thought to all that has gone before, all the people who make my daily meals at all possible.

For example, there’s the farmer who grew the vegetables — which come from our own garden this time of year, “Thank you Mother God and the good earth and worms and microorganisms!” — the packager who shipped them to the super market, the truck driver who drove all night to get the produce to the grocer, the grocer himself who provided the store and stocked it with groceries. Then there’s the stock boy who placed the apples and oranges on display, the company who made the grocery cart for me to gather my groceries and cart them up to the cashier. Then there’s the cashier who checks me out and collects my payment, and the bagging boy who puts my groceries into bags so that I can carry them home. Then there’s the ” butcher, the baker and the candlestick maker,” along with the workers who packaged the bread, the meat and the candlesticks — all of this done for my convenience, to make my life enjoyable and less stressful. And we could go on to include the transportation system — our automobiles and the petroleum needed to run them — but I’ll stop there.  It’s called “Community.” How many people am I consciously aware of who are in some small and large way involved in just my daily meals? Well, if I am consciously aware of them, whoever they are, when I give my money to the cashier for my groceries, then that act of paying for what has been given to me can take on a much larger meaning that isn’t otherwise in my consciousness when I am acting mindlessly out of habit and routine, and maybe complaining about the rising cost of things. How much more fun there is in being mindful!  And thankful!

Sometimes I think of all this and a deep sense of appreciation whelms up in my heart.  It can’t help but whelm up. My payment, then, becomes a means of giving so that the grocer and so many others can continue giving — never mind whether or not they are mindful of the Law of Balance and of their participation in it or lack thereof.  If I am, then they are too, because what I do here is done everywhere. We are one Body of humanity! Let me be conscious for the whole Body.

Our needs are not that great. Our wants are what get us into trouble with the Law of Balance.

I practiced for fourteen years back in the 1960-70’s, along with other colleagues, without a fee for our services. It was called the “GPC Cooperative Fee System.”  The acronym stood for “God–Patient–Chiropractor.” The rationale was that God gives life freely to the patient and the chiropractor alike, so what right does the chiropractor have to charge a fee for helping his patients increase their experience of life?  That’s what true healthcare does, or is at least supposed to do: increase the expression of life in human beings. What price could we honestly place on that?! Health and life are priceless. So we didn’t charge for it, and God came through in providing for our needs. (And when you stop to think about it honestly, our needs are not that great. Our wants are what get us into trouble with the Law of Balance. Think about it. )

We practiced this way in order to align ourselves with the Universal Law of Giving and Receiving. In order to awaken my patients to the this law, I would often say “The patient just leaving the office paid for your services today. You can pay for the person following you, if you like.” Well, it wasn’t true, at least not in a conscious sense. But it was the fact, nevertheless, that we were able to continue giving our services to others because the ones who went before gave to us financially so that we could keep the clinic open and buy groceries in order to sustain our bodies.  Those were the best years of my entire career as a healthcare practitioner. We had so much fun waking people up to the truth and spirit of the Law of Balance. It was also an education in how little value people in general placed on our services and, more to the point, were willing to invest in the health and wellness of their own house of being.  Far more value is placed on the kind of automobile one drives, and keeping it in good running condition, and the quality and comfort of one’s domicile. We averaged around $9 per office visit — but we saw and blessed between fifty and a hundred patients every day!  Just thought I would cap this post off with a little story of my own. We are missing out on a marvelously rewarding experience mindlessly giving just to get something for ourselves from others. We can’t actually do that, you know, for there are no “others.” There’s only the One I am.

Until my next post, in which I will share some of Lao Russell’s wise words on personal relationships, I wish you well.

On Human Relations, part 1 — What is love?

My Chorale Pic

In looking for what book to read next, Walter Russell’s MESSAGE OF THE DIVINE ILIAD came to mind.  I had read it some time ago and remembered the profound impact it had on me.  Looking at the front cover again, however, it was the subtitle that caught my attention: “THE DAWN OF A NEW DAY IN HUMAN RELATIONS.”

This theme also runs through Lao Russell’s book GOD WILL WORK WITH YOU BUT NOT FOR YOU, which my wife has been reading recently – which is likely why I was drawn to Walter’s book. What stands out to both of us reading these books is this matter of love, oneness and human relations. So, I would like to spend a few blog posts considering some of the wisdom that has come through these two authors . . . and perhaps add a little bit of my own.

As the “Golden Race” who are here to usher in a “Golden Age,” it behooves us to understand what love is. What does it mean to love God with all and our neighbor as our self? Let’s explore.

LOVE GOD

Of course this caption is redundant, for God is Love. When we feel love in our hearts, it is God we are feeling and experiencing. Love is God within us. When we love doing something, for example, we are experiencing the power of God working in and through us.

Here are some words of wisdom from Walter Russell:

A lady wrote me once that she hated making the beds and washing the dishes. I said: “Whenever you find that you do not like what you are doing, just remember that God centers you, and whatever you are doing you are doing it with Him and with His help. You cannot move your little finger otherwise. When you make your bed, just say, ‘Come, God, make this bed with me.’”

Later she wrote: “That made me love to make beds and do things I did not like to do. Knowing that God was helping me took away that feeling of loneliness and drudgery.”

Take joy in doing things; find happiness in doing everything the best way you can. If you have to do it, you must do it, so you might just as well love doing it. If you really love your work, you will not tire. Conversely, if you hate your work, you will poison yourself by that hatred and the poison must be removed by an understanding of the universal law of balance. Any other form of relief which does not remove the cause can only be temporary.

The way this truth is phrased quickened a fresh perspective in me: “…just remember that God centers you.” As I extend this truth outward to include everyone and every living thing around me, my worldview suddenly takes on a renewed quality of compassion. God centers all living creatures, including those who do “evil” deeds – terrorists, murderers, bank robbers and rapists. God centers them, too, although their actions do not seem to arise from that center but out of their conflicted hearts and misguided minds. Still, God centers us all, goes where we go, does with us what we do.  That’s a provocative thought . . . and, at the same time, empowering.  God does not pick up and leave us when we fail to act out of the Love that centers us.  God powers our every action. We simply provide direction. Nor does God abandon those who do harm to others and enact horrific crimes against humanity — our enemies. “Love your enemies,” the Teacher instructed, “Do good to those that hate you.” In other words, love God in your neighbor as your Self. Or, simply, love God.

LOVE ONE ANOTHER AS SELF

Lao Russell has written some wonderfully inspiring words in her book as well. In Chapter XVI, entitled “Love Ye One Another,” she speaks passionately and longingly about the family of Man as One Body of siblings who share One Father and One Mother.

“Man does not yet know how to live with other men. He has not yet found that every other man on earth is part of his very body, his very self, not merely his brother. . . . Three thousand miles away means nothing. What happens three thousand miles away happens in our own homes. People who are hurt three thousand miles away are being hurt in our own homes, for what happens anywhere happens everywhere.”

Then she waxes beautifully with deep passion as a mother who longs for the healing of her feuding family.

[The world] must see the good in man and not look upon him as sinful and evil. The world becomes what the world thinks. It thinks of man as sinful and evil and he has become what his own thoughts have made him. He has made a world of hate and fear, and where hate is love cannot also be.

There will come a time, however, when the whole human race will know itself as one family, with but the one FATHER-MOTHER of all. When that day comes every man will be the father and mother, or brother and sister, or son and daughter of every other man. As love comes into the world with spiritual unfolding, separateness and disunity go out of it. With love comes knowledge of the power of unity which makes the power of every man become the power of every other man. Separateness and selfishness breed each other. Separateness makes one man want for himself what every other man also wants for himself. Separateness takes. It never gives, and long ages of taking must pass before he learns that what he takes he never has, but what he gives he always has.

The long ages will pass, however, and every man will serve every other man whom he knows as his very Self. Blood relationship is mighty in its desire to serve sons and daughters, or brothers and sisters, and fathers and mothers in one separate family. No matter what wrong a son may do to the whole world, the love of parents is greater than the fault.

The happy, peaceful and progressive home is one where each member of the family thinks first of each other member, serves first each other before himself, and freely gives without motive of selfgain. In the ideal family everyone will not only serve each other to make him happy but will refrain from doing anything to make any member of it unhappy. That is the ideal. That is what every home needs to make complete happiness for every member of it.

The world is one family of one worldhome. The ideal world is one in which every member of it serves each other lovingly to give him happiness, and refrains from doing anything which will take his happiness away from him. That is the ultimate goal. That is what mankind is striving for. That is what he has been striving for over the long aeons. For these long ages he has ever been searching for the road which will lead to that goal of romance and peace. 

The road to peace is not war. War is the road to destruction and post-traumatic suffering for our sons and daughters who fight for . . . what? That’s a good question, a question that likely lies at the heart of every soldier who comes back home after killing other selves. I believe deep down inside every man and woman who goes to war to fight their country’s battles returns home with a profound awareness that there are no “others.” There are only other countries’ sons and daughters who are just like themselves. There is no “other.” There is only one Self.  Russell says it well here and expands the thought to include place:

We think that thoughts, sounds, and other happenings of which we become cognizant take place in other objects and in other places outside ourselves. This objectivity of belief is not true to Nature. Everything which happens anywhere, happens everywhere.

There are not two points, two positions, or two objects in the entire universe. Therefore, whatever you think of as happening outside yourself is actually echoing within yourself.

There is no other place in the universe than that place which you universally occupy. Likewise, there is no knowledge or thought in the universe that is not omnipresent in the Light of you. The reflection of a light in the mirror is actually within the mirror. All Creation is a mirror which reflects itself within itself universally.

He then answers this profound question, which I will close with and let you ponder:

What is meant by being One with God? 

The more you are aware that the Light of God centers you, the more you become aware that that Light is your very Self, and that your body is but an extension of your Self which you have created to manifest your Self. The more that awareness grows, the more you become the cosmic Being and the more you know.When you finally become fully aware of that Supreme Being as your very Self, you ARE that Supreme Being. 

Human relations are healthy when based on love, which gives birth to oneness. We are each one centered by the same Light of Love. Therefore, we are already One at a core level, the level of our Being. At the Human level, we are different but not separate.  Like the rainbow of many colors that are inseparable from the one white light they differentiate, as Human Beings we are diversified in our expression of the One Light of Love. Why, then, does it seem so hard for us as a Global Family–or even as couples and nuclear families–to find our oneness in Being? Perhaps it is because we are distracted by our Human differences.  ‘Till my next post,

Be Love. Be loved.

The Hero’s Journey, part 3: The Timeline of the Golden Age

This is one of many depictions of the Rainbow Body from Tibet

This is one of many depictions of the Rainbow Body from Tibet

My Chorale PicThe Age of Aquarius is ushering in a Golden Age when time and death will be no more and humanity will finally be rewarded the Elixir of Immortality. Already, as mentioned in my last post, there are thousands of cases of the “Rainbow Body” phenomena reported in China and India. So the path to illumination and union with the divine is open and available to those who seek the Elixir of Immortality, the worthy quest of the Hero’s Journey.

The question I will entertain in this post is:  When does the curtain fall on humanity’s journey in this third density of the “valley of the shadow of death” and our final conquest over the social-political-religious nemesis that’s hiding this elixir from sight going to bring us finally and fully into the Fourth Density experience of total enlightenment and eternal life — the Golden Age foretold by ancient prophecies?

For possible and interesting answers, I will turn to my favorite historical author David Wilcock and reference passages in his 2013 literary release, The Synchronicity Key. One thing I can say about David Wilcock is that he did his homework before putting pen to paper — some thirty years of research. This lends a lot of credibility to his writings. So, let’s examine some of his findings.

First of all, the timeline is based on cosmic cycles. There’s the cycle of the Biblical seven days of creation Moses described in the Book of Genesis. This begs the question as to what is the actual span of a Biblical “day?”  We can find a variety of Biblical passages where a “day” symbolizes a year.

The prophet Daniel tells in 12:11 of his encounter with “a glowing, linen-clad man in a vision, which many readers of the Bible believe was a vision of Jehoshua [Jusus], writes Wilcock. He goes on to say “This glowing man in linen told Daniel there would be a final cycle of 1,290 ‘days’ before the end of an age.  (Underscore mine)

Then we have the Mayan “Great Year” that consists of twelve cycles of 1,290 years adding up to 25,920 years, the time it takes for the axis of the earth to cycle through the twelve Ages of the Zodiac. A larger cycle yet is revealed in Walter Cruttenden’s epic achievement Lost Star of Myth and Time in which he gives “compelling evidence,” writes Wiscock, “that our sun is orbiting a neighboring star….” That cycle is 2,160 years, which is subdivided into four 540-year quarter cycles. These four quarters mark the four corners of a square inside a circle.  Each of these quarter cycles can be visualized as circles, as we are orbiting around our sun, which is orbiting around another star.

Here we have the makings of what is called “Sacred Geometry.” We are impacted significantly by the energy field of this neighboring star. Each time we move through a quarter cycle of 540 years and come to the same point in the larger circle as before, Wilcock explains, “we experience bleed-throughs from events that occurred the last time.” In other words, history repeats itself . . . that is, if we allow it to and do nothing to change human behavior, which has a significant influence upon our experience of these cosmic cycles of creation and re-creation. Recall the words of the One standing in the midst of the seven golden candlesticks St. John writes about in his Book of Revelation: “Behold, I make all things new.”  So can we, and we have a golden opportunity, literally, to make our experience of life and our world new as this Golden Age dawns at the end of a long cycle and the beginning of another.

LOOPS OF FORCE IN AN ELECTRICAL CURRENT ARE WOUND UP CENTRIPETALLY, JUST AS SOLAR AND STELLAR SYSTEMS ARE WOUND UP IN THE HEAVENS. CENTRIFUGAL FORCE UNWINDS THEM FOR REWINDING AND REPETITION

LOOPS OF FORCE IN AN ELECTRICAL CURRENT ARE WOUND UP CENTRIPETALLY, JUST AS SOLAR AND STELLAR SYSTEMS ARE WOUND UP IN THE HEAVENS. CENTRIFUGAL FORCE UNWINDS THEM FOR REWINDING AND REPETITION

To further expand on our visual image of these cycles within cycles — or “wheels within wheels” as the Prophet Ezekiel described them — envision these heavenly bodies moving forward through our Milky Way Galaxy while at the same time orbiting around one another and you see a spiraling pattern of celestial movement through the galaxy and the cosmos. So we are moving in spirals through space rather than in circles around heavenly bodies. 

To expand even further upon this model, consider that these spirals do not necessarily stay the same width nor extend the same repetitious lengths. Some may be moving away from a single point of origin and others moving toward a single point “in nice and neat geometric intervals.”  This diagram from Walter Russell’s inspired writing in The Secret of Light demonstrates this perspective. It is a representation of his vision of how our electrical universe works to keep things in harmony and order. The spiral is Nature’s secret way of imbuing forms, such as trees, with strength and keeping a firm control on the integrative and disintegrative cycles of forms throughout the cosmos. It’s the Creative Process in action. We do, after all, live in an electrical universe, and it is electrical currents that drive and direct these cycles. Such is the magnificence of the Mind of the Creator.

TIME ENCODED PROPHECIES

Prophets apparently enjoy a depth of insight into these cosmic cycles, upon which they base their prophecies. They are, after all, heavenly — perhaps extraterrestrial — messengers who have visited us throughout the ages to give us some sense of direction our earthly journey is taking, along with warnings about repeating cycles that may bring about radical and even catastrophic changes in our planet’s evolutionary journey through the cosmos.  

Here’s one such prophecy Wilcock spends a lot of time with and upon which he places considerable weight in arriving at a time when time will be no more. Let me see if I can condense his reasoning into a couple of paragraphs, because Wilcock moves through a lot of history in his book, framing events within the context of cycles, a very fascinating, though complex, achievement that makes for entertaining reading — that is, if one stays focused in his line of thinking, which is somewhat a challenge. 

The main key to figuring out cycles is to determine their starting and ending points. Some thought to observe events occurring in human affairs throughout history as surface signs of the energetic cycles driving them from behind the scenes. For example, French scholars Michel Helmer and Francois Masson revealed in or around 1958 the hidden truth about repetitive cycles in human affairs. Masson saw the growth cycles of major religions in three phases of 720-year cycles. He suggested the “every major culture will go through stages of its spiritual and religious development that divide up into nice and neat 720-year cycles.”  Taking the birth of Jesus as a starting point, Masson describes the rise and fall of Christianity in cyclical phases:

‘The first phase . . . is the prophetic period of every religion. The second is the clerical phase, and the third is that of the supremacy of the temporal [physical] power over the spiritual power. For example: [the time of] the Christ’s teaching to the years 720-730 corresponds to the mystical epoch of Christianity. From A.D. 720-750 to 1440-1470, the times changed. This was the epoch of the mastery of the ecclesiastical [Church] hierarchy over peoples and governments.

Again, using the birth of Jesus as the starting point of the current cycle we are in, Masson cites the period of iconoclasm, around the year A.D. 726 when Byzantine emperor Leo III ordered the removal of an image of Jesus’s face over the entrance to the Great Palace of Constantinople, as the ‘first major crisis of the Catholic Church’ and the end of the first phase of Christianity’s 2,160-year cycle.

Iconoclasm is defined as “a technical-sounding word for a curture deliberately destroying its own religious icons for political or spiritual reasons.”  We have an example of iconoclasm in our time in the effort to remove prayer in public places, such as schools, and the word “God” from the our national anthem. Wilcock writes:

The use of Christ’s face as an icon in Christianity was considered an ‘abomination.’  This was the first time that the Church’s authority was questioned on such a widespread level. It was the first time that the people became aware that their beloved religion had become corrupted and was being used as a tool of social and political oppression. The church militarized and became an obviously direct arm of the government for the first time in its history. [Not much different from current trends in our government today.]

Going forward 720 years to the year 1440, we have the dawning of the age of modern science as we know it and the beginning of the Renaissance. This is the second major crisis of the Catholic Church when its infallibility in matters of “truth” were challenged, which led to the Reformation when the Church was forced to relinquish its firm control over the Bible and allow the people to have access to sacred scriptures for the first time in its history.

What followed was the breaking away from the Catholic Church’s version of Christianity and the multiplication of religious sects. The Church began to fall apart as it lost its control over the minds of the people. It didn’t lose its fear-based control over their hearts, however, and it is in that very control pattern where the heart of the nemesis beats and pumps out the current of belief throughout the body of Christianity, and other major religions, that death is the only way to heaven, and it is only opens to those who obey its religious laws and decrees and remain tithe-paying members. 

WE COME TO THE END-TIME 

Moving forward 720 years from 1440 we come to the year 2160. This date comes well after the time the Great Year ends and the Golden Age is predicted to arrive by various world wide prophecies. Wilcock adds this consideration:

However, if we are dealing with a system of cycles that is somehow guided by our own collective consciousness and was intended to reach its final resolution surrounding the end of the Great Year — which was in or around the year 2012 — then perhaps other cycles took effect.

A prominent Russian mathematician by the name of Anatoly Fomenko also discovered repeating patterns in history. Only his cycle was 1,296 years long and was divided into a four-part story. The story can be broken up into the three-act Hero’s Journey structure that Hollywood films are based on. I will end with these concluding excerpts from Wilcock’s book:

Let’s not forget that once we include the midpoint in the screenplay, we break it up into four perfectly symmetrical pieces — pages 1 through 30, 30 through 60, 60 through 90, and 90 through 120. If Fomenko has found that the overall “story” is thirteen hundred years long, that’s very interesting, because if we knock off four years and shave it down just a bit to 1,260 years, we now have another perfect subdivision of the 25,920-year precession. There are exactly twenty cycles of 1.296 years within the Great Year itself. Each of these 1,296-year cycles divides neatly into four equal parts on Fomenko’s graph, giving us 324-year sections.There are exactly eighty of these 324-year cycles in the 25,920-year precession of the equinoxes.

Wilcock finally arrives at a likely date:

What if we take the year A.D. 720 as the beginning of a new cycle of a different length? What if A.D. 720 becomes the beginning of a new Hero’s Journey story? What if the political and social climate of A.D. 720 now represents the “ordinary world” which the “heroes” of our modern era must all ultimately be inspired to join a quest to escape from, as they move from lifetime to lifetime?

. . . . What if we use A.D. 720 as our starting point for one of Fomenko’s 1,296-year cycles? This would mean that the cycle will end in the year 2016. This is a very close fit with the end date for the precession and gives us another year to keep an eye on.

And that’s where I will leave you to consider these interesting findings on your own time. Read the book. It’s timely and pertinent to our Hero’s Journey. There’s little doubt that something huge is underway. I just recalled the Master Jesus’ invitation and perhaps even warning: “Come out of her my people.” 

This ends this series on the Hero’s Journey. Until we meet again in this blog, I wish you all a very Happy Thanksgiving Day and a beautiful, peaceful and joyous Christmas and New Year. 

Be love. Be loved.

Our Electromagnetic Universe, page 3, The Body Electric, part 3

Your Heart's Electromagnetic Field

Your Heart’s Electromagnetic Field

Tony Pics for SA BookWe’ve been considering the effect of electromagnetic radiation on ourselves and on other creatures of the natural world. In this blog post I would like to report on some of these effects. I have a personal interest in this topic which was greatly heightened during our recent visit with family living dangerously close to high-power electrical lines in the San Francisco area. I am deeply concerned that the electromagnetic field generated by the powerful currents moving through these power lines may well be affecting their health, and perhaps even their energetic interactions. So I am re-reading Dr. Robert Becker’s book THE BODY ELECTRIC — ELECTROMAGNETISM AND THE FOUNDATION OF LIFE in order to gain a clearer understanding of electromagnetic radiation and its impact on human and animal life.

OUR VIBRATIONAL TERRAIN AND CONTEXT

Electromagnetic Radiation

Electromagnetism can be discussed in two ways—in terms of fields and in terms of radiation. A field is “something” that exists in space around an object that produces it. We know there is a field around a permanent magnet because it can make an iron particle jump through space to the magnet. Obviously there’s an invisible entity that exerts a force on the iron, but as to just what it consists of—don’t ask! No one knows. [Walter Russell would challenge that statement if he were still around] A different but analogous something—an electric field—extends outward from electrically charged objects. 

Both electric and magnetic fields are static, unvarying. When the factor of time is introduced, by varying the intensity of the field as in a radio antenna, an electromagnetic field results. As its name implies, this consists of an electric field and a magnetic field. The fluctuations in the field radiate outward from the transmitter as waves of energy, although somehow these waves simultaneously manage to behave as streams of massless, chargeless particles (photons). As to just how this happens, again—don’t ask! Sometimes the phenomenon is called an electromagnetic field (EMF), to emphasize its connection with the transmitter; sometimes it’s called electromagnetic radiation (EMR), to emphasize its outward-flowing aspect. However, the two terms refer to the same phenomenon and are interchangeable. The only  meaningful distinction is between static and time-varying fields.

 Each energy wave consists of an electric field and a magnetic field at right angles to each other, and both at right angles to the direction the wave is traveling. The number of waves formed in one second is the frequency; the distance the energy travels (at the speed of light) during one oscillation is its wavelength. The higher the frequency, the shorter the wavelength, and vice versa.

Now, that’s pretty much the gist of the matter, the basic understanding of electromagnetism today. If you want to understand how this phenomenon manifests, then I would encourage you to purchase Walter Russell’s enthralling book THE SECRET OF LIGHT, which I’ve referenced and blogged on in earlier posts. Also, see the previous post for information about the history of electricity and microwave technology.

Let’s jump over to the section in Becker’s book where he talks about the impact electromagnetic fields have on our physical bodies and our brains. Let’s start with this frightening bit of information:

The human species has changed its electromagnetic background more than any other aspect of the environment. [This was published in 1985]. For example, the density of radio waves around us is now 100 million or 200 million times the natural level reaching us from the sun. Nor is there any end in sight.When superconducting cables are introduced [which they have been], they’ll increase the field strength around power lines by a factor of ten or twenty. Electric cars, magnetically levitated transport vehicles, and microwave-beam satellites for transmitting solar power to earth would each add strong new sources of electromagnetic contamination.

Dr. Becker calls it “contamination” for valid reasons. He goes on to do the research into the impact it has on human and animal life. Understand, it’s the low and very low and extremely low frequencies waves (LF, VLF, and ELF) that are issues. ELF waves approximate the dimensions of the earth; at 10 Hz one wave is about 18,600 miles long. These are the ones that affect subtle disturbances in our own energy fields and that of animals because of the resonance factor. Higher wavelengths of energy have more noticeable effects on us, like burn our skin. 

Higher waves, like X-rays, gamma waves, and ultraviolet wavelengths of electromagnetic radiation—the shortest are gamma waves, a tenth of a billionth of a millimeter long, vibrate sextillions of times a second—are termed “ionizing radiation, because the higher photonic energy can knock electrons away from atoms, creating highly reactive ions where they don’t belong. They are “free radicals” that can cause cancer. Much of the damage from nuclear radiation is caused in this way. All lower frequencies, beginning with the longer ultraviolet wavelenghts, are nonionizing, but nonetheless affect us in detrimental ways.

We can protect ourselves from the higher frequencies because we notice their impact on our bodies. As Becker explains,

Except for light and infrared heat, we can’t perceive any of these energies without instruments, so most people don’t realize how drastically and abruptly we’ve changed the electromagnetic environment in just one century.

Nor do we notice the impact low frequency waves have on our bodies and minds. Experiments were done with animals, but the results cannot be applied necessarily to humans because of the varying factors like fur, feathers, skin thickness, bone size, and the general shape of the animals that complicate RF and MW absorption beyond our capacity to gauge it. In a sense, Becker says, “…the entire population of the world is willy-nilly the subject of a giant experiment.”  

SUBLIMINAL STRESS

This is what grabbed my attention. The experiments Becker and his colleagues, Howard Friedman and Charlie Bachman, carried out on human subjects showed rather conclusively that electromagnetic fields of 5 to 11 gauss, which are ten to twenty times earth’s background and well above the level of most magnetic storms, when the lines of force were passed through the brain from ear to ear, cutting across the brainstem-frontal current, slowed down the subjects’ reaction time pressing a button in response to a red light. Steady fields produced no effect, but when modulated with a slow pulse of a cycle every five seconds (a delta wave frequency), people’s reactions slowed down. Passed from back to front, the force field had no effect. 

They were excited and eagerly planning further experiments when they “came upon a frightening Russian report. Yuri Kholodov had administered steady magnetic fields of 100 and 200 gauss to rabbits and found areas of cell death in their brains during autopsy. Although his fields were ten times as strong as ours, we stopped all human experiments immediately.”

Friedman duplicated Kholodov’s experiments with more scrutiny and found that all the animals had been infected with a brain parasite peculiar to rabbits. He explains why:

However, in half the animals the protozoa had been under control by the immune system, whereas in the other half they’d routed the defenders and destroyed parts of the brain. The experts suggested that we must have done something to undermine resistance of the rabbits in the experimental group. The code confirmed that most of the brain damage had occurred in animals subjected to the magnetic fields. Later, Friedman did biochemical tests on another series of rabbits and found that the fields were causing a generalized stress reaction marked by large amounts of cortisone in the bloodstream. This is the response called forth by a prolonged stress, like a disease, that isn’t an immediate threat to life, as opposed to the fight-or-flight response generated by adrenaline.

Here’s the clincher, over which I will leave you to ponder. 

Soon thereafter,  Friedman measured cortisone levels in monkeys exposed to a 200-gauss magnetic field for four hours a day. They showed the stress response for six days, but it then subsided, suggesting adaptation to the field. Such seeming tolerance of continued stress is illusory, however. In his pioneering lifework on stress, Dr. Hans Selye has clearly drawn the invariable pattern: Initially, the stress activates the hormonal and/or immune systems to a higher-than-normal level, enabling the animal to escape danger or combat disease. If the stress continues, hormone levels and immune reactivity gradually decline to normal. If you stop your experiment at this point, you’re apparently justified in saying, “The animal has adapted; the stress is doing it no harm.” Nevertheless, if the stressful condition persists, hormone and immune levels decline further, well below normal. In medical terms, stress decompensation has set in, and the animal is now more susceptible to other stressors, including malignant growth and infectious disease.

In the mid-1970’s, two Russian groups found stress hormones released in rats exposed to microwaves, even if they were irradiated only briefly by minute amounts of energy. Other Eastern European work found the same reaction to 50-hertz electric fields. Several Russian and Polish groups have since established that after prolonged exposure the activation of the stress system changes to a depression of it in the familiar pattern, indicating exhaustion of the adrenal cortex [the etiology of chronic stress and chronic fatigue syndrome]. There has even been one report of hemorrhage and cell damage in the adrenal cortex from a month’s exposure to a 50-hertz, 130-gauss magnetic field.

Further experiments with ELF magnetic fields on animals showed impact on endocrine glands and activation of the “fast” flight-or-fight hormones centering on adrenaline from the adrenal medulla. Soviet biophysicist N.A. Udintsev documented an insulin insufficiency and rise in blood sugar. Notably, animals showed no indication they were aware of these hormonal changes, when normally they would react as though they were under attack. They showed no outward signs of fear, agitation, or illness. 

Most humans certainly wouldn’t be able to detect a 100-gauss magnetic field, at least not consciously. Only several years after Friedman’s work did anyone find out how this was happening. 

In 1976 a group under J.J. Noval at the Naval Aerospace Medical Research Laboratory at Pensacola, Florida, found the slow stress response in rats from very weak electric fields, as low as five thousandths of a volt per centimeter. They discovered that when such fields vibrated in the ELF range, they increased levels of neurotransmitter acetylcholine in the brainstem, apparently in a way that activated a distress signal subliminally, without the animal’s becoming aware of it. The scariest part was that the fields Noval used were well within the background levels of a typical office, with its overhead lighting, typewriters, computers, and other equipment [cell phones]. Workers in such an environment are exposed to electric fields between a hundredth and a tenth of a volt per centimeter and magnetic fields between a hundredth and tenth of a gauss. 

That’s more than enough to digest in one blog post. What you do with this information is up to you, of course. Just be aware that there are these factors to consider when your health, physical and mental, gets off kilter. I consider these factors each and every time a client presents bizarre or even “normal” symptoms. What’s “normal” anyway when all medical research has to work with are humans who live in this kind of environment. Is there any wonder our healthcare system is failing us?  We have no truly health model of a human being to measure against. 

This all can be overwhelming and depressing if you let it worry you and don’t embrace it with a higher frequency of energy. That would be the frequency of LOVE, wouldn’t it? We’ve created an environment which will not very much longer be able to support our animal flesh bodies.

But I believe that there’s a greater purpose being served by all this electromagnetic pollution. This may well be the catalyst that is setting in motion the ultimate transmutation of our species to a fourth-density state of being, along with our planet Earth. It would undoubtedly be less traumatic were we to meet it with equal or greater radiant force and let Love work its vibrational alchemy from within.  We may not have to do anything about what’s happening in the electromagnetic and atmospheric terrains of our environment. What could we do anyway, shut down the power lines and dismantle our electrical power plants and grids?  Then what? Regress to candlelight days? No, we’re headed smack dab into a vibrational brick wall that we will only be able to transcend as spiritual beings with light bodies. Our flesh bodies will have to ascend to a higher frequency and transmute. In the meantime, enjoy your electromagnetic universe! 

Be love. Be loved.
