Gold of the Gods, Alchemy, and Monatomic ORMUS – ROBERT SEPEHR

Laurence Gardner was a British author and lecturer. He wrote on subjects such as the Jesus bloodline, the Knights Templar, the Holy Grail, anti-gravity, and monatomic gold, a consumable elixir which allegedly can do everything from extend life to awaken dormant psychic abilities.

David Hudson is credited by most people in the field as being the originator of the term “Orbitally Rearranged Monatomic Elements”, or by its acronym, the ORMEs (ORMUS). Mr. Hudson began speaking publicly about his research and discoveries in 1995, claiming that he had discovered an ingestable matter that caused Superconductivity in the human body, or in other words, what some interpret as the alchemical Philosopher’s Stone.

Hermetics | Kymia Arts – Something to Think About – Ep. 1: Integrating Alchemy into Everyday Life

Due to its coded and vague nature, the Alchemical path is fraught with pitfalls and shrouded with misinformation. This is illuminated by the sheer number of questions that bombard Kymia on a daily basis. With this series, we hope to answer those questions and to provide clarity to those who seek it.

Philosophy | Love and Strife: Empedocles’ Universe

Who hasn’t looked up into a sky full of stars and wondered what our place is in this vast universe? What is the nature of this environment we find ourselves living in? Are there underlying substances to this “stuff” that makes up our world? For the contemplative among us, there are all too often few satisfying answers, yet an endless list of questions. This is especially true for those of us who have cruised around our sun on planet Earth for many years, as when we were younger we seemed to “know” everything! A revered professor of mine once said that as we progress in age, that is precisely the trajectory: as we go along, the “answers” become fewer and the questions accumulate, until we have pretty much nothing but questions! Perhaps that is a bit cynical, but not far off the mark in my opinion.  […]

Theosophy | SPIRITUAL ATTENTION – II, by Raghavan Iyer

   One must use with care those living messengers called words, and this reference to messengers has to do with different classes of elementals, all the myriad invisible centres of energy that permeate the diverse departments of Nature. To be full of the fire of devotion and to do the best work one can, one must have the right basis in thinking. The immortal soul is capable of immortal love, of immortal longings that may summon the life-essence that permeates this globe, the omnipresent spirit that is dateless and deathless. Everyone is inherently capable of an unending, unconditional love and courage and endurance, ready “to suffer woes hope thinks infinite”. The depth of devotion depends upon the level of being. Those who are unafraid of death, who see themselves neither in terms of the body nor in terms of the mind, but as immortal monads, can generate and sustain devotion to the greater hearts and minds of the Bodhisattvas. This constant devotion is in the context of universal mind or Mahat, and the hebdomadal heart of the cosmos. They come under the protection of supreme compassion, the universal umbrella of Dharma. When devotion thus becomes a sovereign talisman, it is continually enriched by yajna and tapas, sacrificial meditation. The wise are those who, starting from small drops of genuine devotion, humility and wisdom, make them grow. They are wise because they grow the way Nature grows. They will, of course, make mistakes, but as long as they maintain their original recognition of the utter simplicity, the transparency and truth of devotion, they can strengthen the current of resolve and regeneration. Magic is possible where there is authenticity, continuity and a sense of proportion, where there is sacrifice, care and a willingness to learn, as well as a capacity to merge the little self in the greater Self.

   The path of spiritual attention is not easy, although anyone can make a beginning by trying to understand. Those who still have desires should pursue the path of sublimation through sacrificial works. To those who are neither completely indifferent nor too much attached, the devotional path bears fruit. One is not expected to be perfectly indifferent to everything nor suddenly to show effortless mastery in the practice of devotion. Devotees have their many limitations, but they are expected to moderate their attachment to the fruits of results. Then the path of devotion will bear fruit at the moment of death or in other lives. The mathematics of the universe is exact; one merely does the best one can and leaves the rest to the Law. It is necessary to elevate what is mortal and unreal with the help of a mental posture which involves true obeisance. To remember properly the original moment is to gain glimpses into the future. The divisions of time into night and day, clock time and calendars, engender an illusory sense of past and present and future. It may be that in a certain year upon a certain day one had a spiritual awakening because one came into the presence of spiritual wisdom. If so, to be true to that means to keep going back again and again to the original moment, because the more one can do that, the more one will come closer to the Teachers of Wisdom. If on any issue one understood the original moment, then one would see that the whole story is compressed in that original moment. In that is already determined and defined the future outcome of everything that is connected with that original moment.

   One cannot awaken the powers of spiritual attention if one is preoccupied with externals. One cannot be spiritually awake and attentive if one has forgotten that one is an immortal soul. Even if at some level one knew it and then forgot it, that is going to have an effect upon the power of attention. Understanding means making connections. When one truly enjoys thinking about what one is trying to recall, then one can summon other ideas connected with the same line of thinking. Correlations begin to emerge and connections can be made. With calm and detachment and true love of something larger than oneself, there can be access to a vaster perspective. The reason why people forget and why they fantasize is that they do not really know in the present. The reason they do not know in the present is that they are not fully attentive as immortal souls. They are misled by the sensorium, by the shadowy screen of prejudice, by the film of false anticipation and by the burden of failure, shame and regret. Therefore, they have neither lightness nor freedom nor joy, neither do they have any fullness of receptivity and devotion. The path of spiritual reminiscence has to be summoned, and the future is obscure to those who desperately want clues or cues from the outside.

   Human beings define themselves during the day by how they relate to deep sleep, and during their lifetime by how they relate to their golden moments. They could know their karma if only they would have the courage to look at their vows, at their highest moments and the extent of their fidelity to them. If they can say that they have at some level made an effort to be true but failed, then they should go on and say that they are willing for Karma to work. They must be honest with themselves if they would gain the strength they need through rekindling a golden moment. This could again become real for them in the present. Then they do not have to see their future only in terms of failures, betrayals, forgetfulness and loss of vision. They could see it in terms of a renewal of vision and a rekindling of strength.

   To work with Karma is to learn why one is what one is at any given time on any plane, to look at one’s strengths and with the help of this awareness to recognize the seeds of former resolve. One always has the opportunity to be grateful to those who made it possible, to have the courage to look at one’s weaknesses and understand calmly how they arose, and be determined to counteract them. Then one has a sense of actually shaping the future on the basis of true knowledge, not on the basis of mere chance or the whim of a capricious god. This is true spiritual knowledge based upon a courageous correction of one’s own relationship to the divine spirit within, the indwelling Ishwara. Great teachers work under a law where every genuine striving is noticed, but all human beings throughout the world come under the same law. Those who can see the past, the present and the future simultaneously will only let their gaze fall where it is merited, because where it falls there is a tremendous quickening of opportunities for growth, but also an enormous increase of the hazards of neglect. In a dynamic universe of thought and of consciousness, a great difference can be made in one’s understanding of causality and of energy through one’s concept of time which is determined by one’s concept of self-hood and being. This is truly a function of how one thinks at this moment today, how one sleeps tonight and how one wakes up tomorrow, in a cycle of progressive awakenings through meditation and ethical practice, not for the sake of oneself but for the sake of all living beings in the visible and invisible cosmos.

Hermes, May 1979

Theosophy | SPIRITUAL ATTENTION – I , by Raghavan Iyer

    Sit evenly, erect, at ease, with palms folded on the lap, with eyes fixed on the nose: cleanse your lungs by taking a deep breath, holding it in and then discharging it, raise in your heart the OM sounding like the tolling of a bell, and in the lotus of your heart, contemplate My form as encircled by light.
  The path of knowledge is for those who are weary of life; those who still have desires should pursue the path of sublimation through works: and to those who are not completely indifferent nor too much attached the devotional path bears fruit.
  Perform your actions for Me and with thoughts fixed on Me: untainted like the sky, see yourself within your self; consider all beings as Myself and adore them; bow to everybody, high or low, great or small, kind or cruel; by seeing Me constantly in all, rid yourself of jealousy, intolerance, violence and egoism. Casting aside your pride, prestige, and sense of shame, fall prostrate in humility before all, down to the dog and ass. This is the knowledge of the learned, the wisdom of the wise – that man attains the Real with the unreal and the Immortal with the mortal.


— Krishna to Uddhava

  The universe is mostly unmanifest, and every human being is a microcosmic reflection of the entire egg-like cosmos. Each individual is a vast but largely hidden force-field, but all are manifesting with varying degrees of knowledge, deliberation and discrimination. These diversities are the product of a long history of use, overuse and misuse of the sheaths and vestures in which immortal monads have been embodied in myriad environments over eighteen million years. Given this far-reaching perspective, how can any person use this potent teaching in order to become a better human being? How can an individual become more attentive and discriminating in using the sacred gift of creative imagination, training the mind as an instrument for concentrated thought, directed with a benevolent feeling towards goals compatible with the purposes of all living beings, towards universal good? Strange as it may seem, everyone can discover indispensable clues for answering this question in the simple fact that he or she is a certain kind of human being. The whole story is recorded from head to toe: the way a person walks and talks; the way a person holds himself or herself; the way a person thinks, feels and acts; the way a person relates to other beings; but, above all, the way a person lives through waking and sleeping from day to day, passing through the three halls of consciousness – jagrat, swapna and sushupti – connecting moments in childhood through the seasons of human life, growing, maturing and mellowing with intermittent glimpses of wisdom.

    Every person can test motives and methods in the daily attempts to translate thought and intention into outer modes of expression. If someone gets a chance to work upon certain details of some part of a larger work in which the levels of motivation markedly vary, that person can learn through what karma brings to him or her. If, by mistake, one became involved in more than one can manage, this would be known within a short time because one would get burnt. To be unready is to have a shrunken sense of self and therefore a force-field that is very congested with blurred, contradictory and weak currents liable to short circuits and shocks. As long as there is the opportunity to learn and to correct, it is always possible to make a difference, because all human beings are capable in their finest moments of the highest possible motivation. There is hardly a person who has not had moments of pure love of the human race. There are few who have gone through the whole of life without even once having looked at the stars and sky and wondered at the magnitude of the universe. Nature cannot support a human being who cannot ever negate the suffocation of confinement within shallow perspectives of mind and heart. As long as there is the beneficence of sleep, every human being has abundant opportunities to renew the larger Self, the greater motive, the fuller perspective. The problem then is not that a human being is without spiritual resources, but rather how to make those resources tapped during deep dreamless sleep relevant when one is out in the field of duty, Kurukshetra. Wakeful deployment of resources will require sufficient noetic detachment to avert captivity to compulsive activity, and thereby avoid being cut off from the greater Self. When the only correction available is sleep, it is too inefficient to rely upon automatically because the daily passage through confused dream states vitiates the healing effects of deeper dreamless states.

    Meditation is the source of noetic understanding, but this depends upon an initial humbling of the false self that otherwise undermines every effort. Learning without unlearning is not only useless, but, like eating without elimination, it can be fatal. Bad habits must be unlearnt while learning new ways of doing things that come from new ways of thinking, and in this continuous process one has to be courageous in assessing one’s spiritual strivings. By seeing where one is going wrong and why, it is possible to make significant connections between causes and consequences and then see where a real difference can be made. It is always possible to make a difference, but only on the basis of self-examination that leaves one more determined and relaxed – more relaxed because of seeing oneself in relation to the whole of humanity. Without running away from the facts, it is possible to take an honest inventory, and if this is done, one will soon begin to discover that it is not that one’s motive is entirely bad or that one is altogether no good. It is rather that one is not very good at learning because of having created blockages in the self through pride, blockages in the mind through prejudice, blockages in the heart through partiality, blockages in the will through perversity. These blockages precipitate very quickly in the presence of great resolves, and if they are not faced, it is difficult to avoid walking backwards. But if this realization brings a sense of defeat, that means one never really understood the teaching of Karma. The Self that has to make the effort of understanding is that ray of the immortal soul which is put in charge of the kingdom in which the different parts of one’s being must be dynamically balanced. When there is a greater harmony within, it is possible to contribute more to harmony without. This is what each is meant to do. The general accounting can be left to Karma. By altering radically one’s attitude to work, to motive and method, and one’s way of balancing them, there is the opportunity for growth on the basis of a larger and a firmer recognition of the invisible forces, realities and laws constantly at work in Nature and in oneself.

Theosophy | Drawing The Larger Circle – 1

The 1975 cycle will continue to precipitate momentous choices for individuals and societies. What are the vital elements in this decisive choosing, and what will be the chief consequences? There is in the life of every human being a series of minor choices which add up to a crucial choice, but often it is made with incomplete knowledge of its critical nature. To grow and to age is to recognize with increasing clarity that all events in the past have had their irreversible consequences. Therefore, within any shallow philosophy centered essentially on the physical body and premised upon a single incarnation, a personal sense of futility and fatalism looms large as one comes closer to the moment of death. As with individuals, so with civilizations. Civilizations are apt to conduct the deepest reflection upon their storied past in times of depression, either out of self-indulgent nostalgia or sheer bewilderment at their bygone glory. This has shadowed every great civilization in its hour of decline, and today we are witnessing this in Western Europe and in the nostalgic mood which is intermittent in the United States. Civilizations seek to cling to something of the past, and perceptive chroniclers like Toynbee in England or Jaspers in Switzerland sense that something went wrong as early as before 1914, that the seeds of today’s malaise lay far back in the past. When we look back to that past we surmise that a lot could have been avoided, that there were viable alternatives and missed opportunities. This is the sad state of societies as well as individuals who, because of narrowness of perspective and myopia in relation to the future, impose upon their lives a delusive dependence upon their own edited versions of a truncated past. But whenever human beings are willing to rethink their basic assumptions about themselves, about their shrouded past and about their cloudy future, then they do not need to edit. They do not have to limit unduly the horizon of their gaze.

This is difficult to understand initially. One might think in terms of the extreme example of a person with Promethean foresight who can discern in the cycles of this century long-term factors that go back a thousand years into the past and will go forward a thousand years into the future. In the Victorian Age, T.H. Huxley observed that in the myriad worlds around us there is no reason why there cannot be beings with an intelligence as far beyond our present level as ours is beyond that of the black beetle, and with a control over nature as far beyond our own as ours is beyond that of the snail. He also suggested that even ordinary human beings can look back and forward over a millennium and make broad projections. It is, in principle, possible for there to be beings in the universe who can see all pasts and all futures. The power of choice is partly a function of the scope of perspective. With wider perspectives our choices become more intelligent, but as they become more informed, we readily recognize that there are many factors that are constant. One cannot wish away causes generated over a long cycle. The more clearly a person sees what he cannot alter right now in this incarnation, the more effectively he can use his energies to alter what he can. All this requires a measure of balance, but most human beings are unable to choose wisely by clearly facing the alternatives before them. All too often they vainly hope that by proceeding in one direction, everything else will automatically come to them. Energy cannot move in all directions at once, and though there are many planes of matter, it is always the case that everything adds up in a mathematical universe. One’s capacity to choose is a function of one’s knowledge, not merely of particular causal chains but also of what is at the very core of the phenomenal process of becoming: breathing in and breathing out. Ideally, if one could comprehend the meaning of a single day, one would by analogy be able to understand what is enacted over a lifetime.

It has been taught that for the truly wise, each day is like a new incarnation. In small space they see the subtle motions of unbounded space. In a single moment they can grasp quintessentially the infinite possibilities that are spread out in eternal duration. They can retain in consciousness the freedom that belongs to those who are not rushing to manifest, while displaying a shrewd awareness of what it is possible to manifest with a due respect for the feelings of others, for collective strengths and weaknesses, for the limits and possibilities of the current cycle. Theosophical teaching offers the vast perspective of eighteen million years of human history and also of the sixth sub-race which will emerge far in the future but which must clearly have some relationship to the fifth sub-race – now visibly on the decline – that flowered forth in Europe and partly in America. At this point of time there is, by analogy and correspondence, a critical moment of choice bearing upon the alternatives that confront our intelligence. The ratiocinative mind has become adept, because of modern upbringing and so-called education, because of so much dichotomous thinking since Aristotle, at rationalizing its wants, desires and limitations. Now we find at a global level the logical limit of this rationalizing mind, which insists there is not enough room or food on earth for all human beings on our globe. This no-exit barrier in thinking arises because of assumptions that were too limited from the start. It hinges upon a view of the universe which is incompatible with the vast resources of the creative imagination, with the inventiveness displayed in the last three centuries in building up the structures of applied science and sophisticated civilization. Even this is merely a recent example of the immense resourcefulness of the human race over many millennia. The type of thinking which is inductive, inferential and dichotomous, functioning within the perspective of a closed universe or of a one-life system, has become sterile and has no real answers to the awesome problems of our time.

Esoterica | Language of the Mysteries


“The learned may penetrate into the significance of all oriental mysteries, but the vulgar can only see the exterior symbol. It is allowed by all who have any knowledge of the scriptures that everything is conveyed enigmatically, i.e. esoterically.”
— Origen of Alexandria (185—254 C.E.)

“When the human race learns to read the language of symbolism, a great veil will fall from the eyes of men. They shall then know truth and, more than that, they shall realize that from the beginning truth has been in the world unrecognized, save by a small but gradually increasing number appointed by the Lords of the Dawn as ministers to the needs of human creatures struggling to regain their consciousness of divinity.”
— Manly P. Hall, Melchizedek and the Mystery of Fire

“In all esoteric traditions, the most important inner instructions are always transmitted in symbolic language, thus veiling the sacred from the eyes of the profane. At the same time, the unveiling of the instructions offers a method for training the disciple’s understanding.” — Raul Branco, The Pistis Sophia, An Introduction

“There is a thinking in primordial images, in symbols which are older than the historical man, which are inborn in him from the earliest times, eternally living, outlasting all generations, still make up the groundwork of the human psyche. It is only possible to live the fullest life when we are in harmony with these symbols; wisdom is a return to them.” — Carl Jung

No photo description available.

“Symbolism is the language of the Mysteries; in fact it is the language not only of mysticism and philosophy but of all Nature, for every law and power active in universal procedure is manifested to the limited sense perceptions of man through the medium of symbol. Every form existing in the diversified sphere of being is symbolic of the divine activity by which it is produced. By symbols men have ever sought to communicate to each other those thoughts which transcend the limitations of language. Rejecting man-conceived dialects as inadequate and unworthy to perpetuate divine ideas, the Mysteries thus chose symbolism as a more ingenious and ideal method of preserving their transcendental knowledge. In a single figure a symbol may both reveal and conceal, for to the wise the subject of the symbol is obvious, while to the ignorant the figure remains inscrutable. Hence, he who seeks to unveil the secret doctrine of antiquity must search for that doctrine not upon the open pages of books which might fall into the hands of the unworthy but in the place where it was originally concealed.”
— Manly P. Hall

Today’s Meditation | St. Germain’s Violet Flame

The following is an example of the 4-step Alchemical Violet Flame Meditation, which will transmute your karma and negative thoughts, actions and emotions. Ideally, you meditate on the Violet Flame for 9 minutes at 9:00 a.m., 3:00 p.m., and 9:00 p.m. daily.

There are many ways to use the Violet Flame. This is the basic method Saint Germain wishes everyone to use as a foundation for Violet Flame work. It is very simple with only four steps. Once you understand the principles behind this practice, you can adapt it and use it in unlimited ways.

Step 1.

Bring the Violet Flame into your body. Ask your Higher Self, a Master Guide or Angel to assist you to do so, or just ask the Flame to “be made manifest,” whichever is most comfortable. It is helpful to visualize (doesn’t matter if you can or cannot actually see it) or pretend that there is a ball of violet fire above your head. Then ask that ball of fire to come into your body and fill every speck of your entire body.

Step 2.

Spin the flame in and around your body. Keep the Flame inside your body while asking it to also come out through your heart chakra and spin around or encircle the outside of your body so that it’s encompassing your emotional, mental and spiritual bodies.

Step 3.

Ask the Violet Flame to transmute everything you wish to be changed or eliminated from your life. Some people like to mention everything like a shopping list – all karma, negative feelings such as anger, poverty, frustration, sadness, physical illnesses, etc., which is fine. But you can also do a catch-all phrase, such as “transmute anything and everything standing in the way of my ascension, or of becoming a Christed Being.” Again, it’s the intent and the feeling behind it. One important phrase to add is, “on all dimensions, on all levels, through all time and space, past, present and future” to your request. That covers all your lifetimes and your multidimensional selves.

Step 4.

Change negativity into Divine Light and fill your body. “Holes” are created in your aura where the dense energy and blocks were consumed by using the Violet Flame. It is very important to fill those spaces up with healing energy. Some people like to do the list again. “Please transmute everything into love, prosperity, abundance, peace and happiness.” Or you can ask for specific colors, which are pure energy. Pink is unconditional love. Blue is peace and tranquility. Green is health and abundance. Deep dark blue is spiritual knowledge and intuition. Violet is spiritual advancement and knowledge. Either way works fine. The Violet Flame Invocation, below, turns everything into the golden light of the Christ Consciousness, which encompasses all the qualities of the other colors.

Preparation: Center yourself. Take a few deep breaths to prepare, and then, say these words:

Mighty I AM Presence, Beloved God, My Heavenly Source,
Please make manifest in me now the Sacred Violet Flame of Transmutation.
Bring the Violet Flame into every cell, molecule and atom of my body filling me totally and completely.
Blessed Violet Flame, blaze into my Heart and expand out and around all of my bodies, physical, emotional, mental and spiritual, surrounding my entire Being with your Divine Grace, Love, Mercy and Forgiveness.
Transmute all karma, negative thoughts, actions, deeds and energy that I have ever created at any time, in all dimensions, on all levels, in all bodies, through all time and space, past, present and future, for all Eternity.
Transmute anything and everything that stands in my way of embodying the Ascended Christ Being That I AM.
Beloved Violet Flame turn all that has been transmuted Into the Golden Light of God, the Christ Consciousness, The Light of God that never fails.
Send this Golden Light to me now, filling and surrounding my entire body with its Divine Radiance, raising my vibration and frequency to the highest level possible for me at this time.
And So It Is.

St. Germain’s Violet Flame Invocation

Please individualize the Invocation using words from your heart and say them with great feeling and intention. Saying the words out loud is best because the power and vibration of the spoken word has energy, which helps create the maximum results of the Violet Flame. If you are among people, you can just say it quietly in your mind.

Interpreting Khalil Gibran: Even when you are lost, you are already Home

Acharya Prashant

“The significance of a man is not in what he attains,

but rather what he longs to attain.”

-Khalil Gibran, ‘Sand and Foam’

Question: Once during a discourse on the Bible, you too have said, “The more you know the Truth, the more you want to know; such is the expanse of the Truth, infinite.” If this be so, then what is coming back to Home? What is this whole thing about coming back Home? Can one ever really be Home? Khalil Gibran seems to say that more than arriving at Home, it is the longing for Home which is important.

Acharya Prashant: Listen again to what Khalil Gibran says. He says, “The significance of a man is not in what he attains, but rather what he longs to attain.”

Man is a constant search, man is a restlessness; that is how man…

On Spiritual Egoism …

Spiritual egoism. It’s a sin worse than pride. It seems all of us are guilty of this transgression, from the hippie guru, a rabbi, a minister or priest in a church. Recognition of the many faces and facets of spiritual egoism is a positive sign that you are on the journey to fully understanding the battle of love versus hate.

Jesus Christ’s mission was all about “love one another”. But, walking The Path of Spirit Greatness is not a straight one. Spiritual egoism is a slippery slope and only underscores the narrowness of The Way. It seems to be guided. It is a moment to moment scruitany, and this is why the development of discernment in feeling is key. People like to criticize my views by sayjng that I don’t believe in Yeshua. None could be farther from my truth, because my guide stone is Yeshua’s very words: “BE LIKE ME”.

The question is how can we ever fully know what that admonition means in this life? To truly know it requires a transmutation of being: a transmutation of consciousness. However, as much as I desire that ideal, I readily admit that I am not yet ready to commit wholly to that transmutation process … and I question myself about “when” that next step will come to pass.

When will it become easy for me to commit to it? This inquiry has caused many challenges for me, and yes, anguish with the question of not knowing when. This is spiritual imperfection. Frankly, we, each of us, will always and ever not know unless and until we die. This is the big secret!

An out of body experience will not ever be definitive because of the sheer reality that you come back. To “know” means you never return. Nobody gets out alive and THAT is the fear. This is the unity. Looking into Death’s face is no BS and it cannot be sugar-coated.

In this Now, we are still in that embattled state of mind obsessed with “when” … and we are at the pinnacle. The focus of my generation is on what we can illuminate for those coming up behind us: the future generations who are our legacy.

The hubris of knowing is humbling. Thus, we collectively stare into the face of our own mortality and in so doing, we want to be heard because we are now truly of age. Hence, the desperation and fear: the din created by spiritual egoism.

Listen, it will always be someone’s latter days, and so an excuse to shout louder. So, to punctuate the dialogue with spirtual egoism is like pouring gas on the proverbial fire. Now, the “when” is shaping up to appear as the moment when “knowing” will be a platform of mutual agreement. This trigger point we collectively feel and act differently then those who went before us. Two, four, seven generations from now we will tell the story. Are we doomed to remain stuck? It takes constantly stepping back to view the big picture perspective to keep variables straight and in play. In conclusion we are each influenced profoundly by those who were with us during our development years. I also learned that all of us are the ultimate human potential. we can co create our own reality.

Ancient Philosophy as a Way of Living: Cynicism

I’ve made some rather strange and unexpected decisions that fall outside of the social and economic norms of our 21st century. The American Dream, at least for me, is dead… and in a way, I may be loosely following the Cynic dream instead. I say loosely because the Cynics of Ancient Greece were a very radical group.  […]

Paradigm Shift || Martin Kenny – 2020 DE-TO-X … Ascension CODES

2020 – NEW CLEAR SOLAR EVENT, NEW AGE, NEW WORLD ORDER.

I think it’s safe to say that we are living in very strange times. Many are even calling it the LAST DAYS/DAZE.

There is certainly a natural mystic in the air.

All this is not a random coincidence. We are slowly consciously individually & collectively evolving & shifting.

There is a mass conscious awakening underway …

And like any mass shift, there is bound to be confusion, chaos, uncertainty, anxiety, etc.  But it’s all good, this is all heading to a beautiful fantastic climax – VISION 2020

In 2020 our universe will experience something known as a galactic alignment or Solar event. These events periodically happen over cyclical time, in various scales. The last biggish one occurred in 1859 and it’s called the Carrington event, also linked to the great mud flood.

The one coming in 2020 is going to be much much bigger…this one only occurs every 2 – 3,000 years. The last cosmic event this big was the biblical great deluge/flood. This coming 2020 solar event is not going to be as physically catastrophic as the last one. The last one was a WATER cataclysm where as this one will be AIR centered.

This coming event is meant to realign cosmic energy & consciousness within the various earthly domains/realms of our vast Earth plane. This energy will begin at the CENTER of the Earth (North pole) Spiraling outwards & back again over a short period of time.

The Event itself will be triggered by an electromagnetic sonic boom that will look like what we know as a Nuclear atomic bomb.

IT WILL NOT BE AN ATOMIC BOMB.

However, it will be positively NUCLEAR … It will give humanity a NEW CLEAR vision for the future – individually & collectively. It will give us 2020 VISION. I suspect the current so called powers that be will attempt to use this natural cosmic event as a false flag.

They may say “aliens” did it or it was caused by “global warming”… This sonic boom of electromagnetic energy will shut down our entire electric grid instantaneously, causing a collapse of our financial, socioeconomic, political & collective cultural existence as we know it. This event will be used to pave the way for a new way forward.

 

THE NEW WORLD ORDER

The so called “elite” who currently run this realm are aware of this event & have been planning for it for a very long time. These post 2020 plans are accelerating as we get closer to the time frame – As I’ve proven in this video.

Anyway … This cosmic event is not to be feared. It is a natural process to allow growth within our individual & collective consciousness. The electromagnetic Purple, red & green astral rays that this event will create, will cover the entire plane of our earth for a short period of time. It is not to be feared.

Government authorities will most likely tell us that this green mist caused by this event is a toxin (TO – X – IN).

They will tell us to stay indoors & not go out into the radiation. They will say it’s harmful radiation … And indeed it will be for many … Mainly for those who have heavy metals in their bodies, i.e., vaccines, iron from meat eating, GMO foods, etc.

But for those with minimal harmful chemicals in their bodies, the radiation will radiate & activate dormant DNA … (supernatural abilities).

Those of us planning to make the pilgrimage UP North to the CENTRAL realm of our Earth (Eden) – this will be our window of opportunity.

In this Video presentation I am going to clarify & give you information on how best to prepare your ARK ( mind, body & spirit) for the coming air deluge. Those staying in this realm, will have the opportunity to forge a new path forward as we shift out of our conscious iron age (Pisces) & into our bronze (Aquarian) age. Whatever your path, I hope you enjoy the ride it’s going to be a little bumpy but no doubt exciting & adventurous as well.

VISION 2020 — For those with eyes to see.

Melchizedek Consciousness || Forbidden History, Watchers, Nephilim, Higher Consciousness || The Fall of Atlantis, The Rise of the Archons, and the Emerald Tablets – with Matthew Lacroix

Great mystery still surrounds the forgotten land of Atlantis, created by the mighty Greek god Poseidon, and the dark magic that led to its downfall. For thousands of years, there has existed an ancient battle between the opposing family factions of the eagle and serpent, leading to the rise and fall of empires. Has our timeline been secretly puppeteered by dark forces known as the Archons who have been hiding in the shadows all throughout history?

Paradigm Shifting …

” […] the central brain of the Matrix Control System [is] known by the ancients as the Demiurge. The demiurge is said to be the soul of the universe. It is the all-pervading energy field that projects matter, energy, space, and time at the quantum level. The Demiurge is a nonphysical artificial intelligence that, in its original and rightful form, fashioned physicality according to the divine will. Except it has since broken away from the divine framework and become a parasite upon its own corner of Creation, which is the universe we now find ourselves in. The Demiurge has shaped this universe into a cold deterministic machine, a construct that perpetuates the illusion of linear time, that grinds onward without regard for the consciousness of its inhabitants, and that forces its subjects to live by the law of the jungle. These spiritually suffocating conditions are what allow the Matrix Control System to exist. They lead to a mode of living that favors serving self at the expense of others. What was supposed to have been a nurturing womb, a growth matrix for the evolution of consciousness through physical experience, has instead taken on overtones of a spiritual prison.

The second component of the Matrix includes all the nonphysical beings that have taken after the Demiurge. In a realm of limited resources, there will be those who have developed competition, predation, and survival to a high art. Such beings are spiritually dead and cut off from the divine. They look to the living, such as ourselves, for their source of energy and entertainment. The more powerful ones, whom the Gnostics termed Archons, may be viewed as the henchmen of the Corrupt Demiurge. Here on Earth, they preside over a network of negative entities that farm us for our soul energy. This network includes demons, parasitic thoughtforms generated by human suffering and perversion, as well as ghosts working in the service of demons. They are all nonphysical predators that roam around and instigate human suffering at every opportunity, mainly to feed off the soul energy released. They are energy feeders, mind manipulators, and tormenters that play us like fiddles if we are not aware. They can orchestrate misleading synchronicities, create accidents and freak illnesses, insert foreign thoughts and emotions into us during lowered states of consciousness, and they can induce schizoid symptoms in the vulnerable.

The third component consists of alien collectives that have manipulated mankind in every way conceivable since the dawn of our species. They have shaped our genetics, history, beliefs, and want full control of our planetary destiny. Unlike demons, aliens are physical or quasi-physical beings who possess superior intelligence, psychic abilities, and technology. Within certain limits, their technology allows them to alter matter, energy, space, and time through the use of demiurgic energies. That is why aliens are architects of the Matrix Control System.”

Meditation  || Live Virtuously

 

At the root are four virtues.  Courage.  Temperance.  Wisdom, then Justice.  These are the root virtues that human beings are meant to develop in their lives.  All virtues come out of one of these four virtues.

 

Courage

Courage is the first and most important virtue, because upon it the other ones are based.

Generosity is actually the daughter of the mother virtue, which is Courage, because generosity is courage with one’s wealth.

Patience is also a type of courage because it is a lack of anxiety when a calamity afflicts you, and that is from a type of courage.  So, being patient is rooted in courage.

In English, the root word of courage is core  which means “heart”.  Thus, the essence of courage is the heart, ergo, a person who has courage has a lot of heart.  That’s why the West African Arabs say, “he does not have any heart”, which means the person does not have any courage.  It is the heart that is the source of courage.

 

Temperance

Temperance is about balance.  Temper has to do with balance.  For example:  Temperature, you adjust.  To temper is the ability to adjust to different circumstances.  Therefor, temperance is about always maintaining the balance, like a homeostatic moral homeostasis.  In the same way, your body maintains 98.6, the soul maintains a moderation in all things:  that is the essence of temperance.

From temperance comes Chastity. Iffa, which has to do with not aggressing against anyone, either sexually or financially.

From that, temperance gives birth to Contentment.  And from contentment, comes Trustworthiness.  Thus, somebody who has chastity … and remembering the root word chaste carries a meaning not exclusive to sexual mores … but has to do with everything now is limited only to the idea of chastity and sexual relations.  But traditionally, the idea of temperance had to do with moderation in all things … and that moderation led to this chastity, or chaste nature.  A pure, virtuous nature.

 

Wisdom

From Wisdom comes Understanding … the virtues of the mind and intellect … and then, finally, Justice.

 

Justice

At the essence of justice is a desire for Fairness.  So, the essence of justice is fairness, which is very difficult to achieve.  The essence of justice is Ein Soph and it is very difficult  to attain.  Very few people are fair in this world.  Even people who are oppressors, or who are oppressed, will always look at the other with total lack of fairness.  Always.  An oppressor will always look at the one he is aggressing upon with a total lack of fairness.  By the same token, the one aggressed upon will always look at the oppressor with a total lack of fairness.  This explains the reason true Justice is very hard to come about in the world because of human nature.  It is so difficult for human beings to be fair and to be truly fair.

Another essential component of Justice is Mercy.  In the traditional understanding, mercy actually came out of justice.  The reason for that is because mercy is an emotion that emerges when one sees another suffering, or is in a situation that he (the emoter) is not.  Mercy arises from that sense that this person does not deserve their circumstances.  In other words, the fact that one is not in the other’s condition communicates that one does not want those conditions happening to the other person … and that is Justice … and that’s why mercy emerges out of justice.  It is an extraordinary concept because we usually tend to see mercy and justice as mutually exclusive.  You are either just, or you are merciful.

True mercy is actually emerging out of a real sense of justice … that you don’t deserve that.  This is why when God shows mercy to His creatures, that mercy is coming from His justice.  That is also why the Q’uran says, “my mercy outstrips my justice”.  In other words, if the two concepts race, mercy always wins.

From this idea of mercy emerges the idea of Forebearance.  Despite someone aggressing upon you, forebearance is the ability to not desire retribution.

From that virtue of Forebearance, emerges the virtue of Forgiveness, or Pardoning.  This is why forgiveness is the highest virtue.  The amazing thing about forgiving another is that it physically heals the forgiver, thereby healing the mental body of depression, anger and despair.  It is a type of Acceptance, and that is the beauty of forgiveness — the acceptance that there is nothing that can be done about it.  This when you ask yourself, “Do I want to continue the cycle, or do I not want to be the one that breaks the cycle?”  That is mujahidah, what the Prophet (sallallahu ‘alayhi wa sallam) said is the one who prevents his soul from things that are harmful for it.  A real warrior … and that is Ancient Chinese perspective in derivation.   The Chinese said, “It is the true warrior that conquers himself.”

This is in keeping with ancient tradition.

Theosophy | Weekly Quotes from “The Secret Doctrine”, by HP Blavatsky

Evolution and Intelligent Design in The Secret Doctrine – LXXII
The Comparative Anatomy of Man and Anthropoid Is Not a Confirmation of Darwinism

   We are told that while every other heresy against modern science may be disregarded, this, our denial of the Darwinian theory as applied to Man, will be the one “unpardonable” sin. The Evolutionists stand firm as rock on the evidence of similarity of structure between the ape and the man. The anatomical evidence, it is urged, is quite overpowering in this case; it is bone for bone, and muscle for muscle, even the brain conformation being very much the same.

Well, what of that? All this was known before King Herod, and the writers of the Ramayana, the poets who sang the prowess and valour of Hanuman, the monkey-God, “whose feats were great and Wisdom never rivaled,” must have known as much about his anatomy and brain as does any Hæckel or Huxley in our modern day. Volumes upon volumes were written upon this similarity, in antiquity as in more modern times. Therefore, there is nothing new whatever given to the world or to philosophy, in such volumes as Mivart’s “Man and Apes,” or Messrs. Fiske and Huxley’s defence of Darwinism. But what are those crucial proofs of man’s descent from a pithecoid ancestor? If the Darwinian theoryis not the true one – we are told – if man and ape do not descend from a common ancestor, then we are called upon to explain the reason of:

(I.) The similarity of structure between the two; the fact that the higher animal world – man and beast – is physically of one type or pattern.

(II.) The presence of rudimentary organs in man, i.e. traces of former organs now atrophied by disuse. Some of these organs, it is asserted, could not have had any scope for employment, except for a semi-animal, semi-arboreal monster. Why, again, do we find in Man those “rudimentary” organs (as useless as its rudimentary wing is to the Apteryx of Australia), the vermiform appendix of the cœcum, the ear muscles, 1 the “rudimentary tail” (with which children are still sometimes born), etc., etc.?

Such is the war cry; and the cackle of the smaller fry among the Darwinians is louder, if possible, than even that of the scientific Evolutionists themselves!

Furthermore, the latter themselves – with their great leader Mr. Huxley, and such eminent zoologists as Mr. Romanes and others – while defending the Darwinian theory, are the first to confess the almost insuperable difficulties in the way of its final demonstration. And there are as great men of science as the above-named, who deny, most emphatically, the uncalled-for assumption, and loudly denounce the unwarrantable exaggerations on the question of this supposed similarity. It is sufficient to glance at the works of Broca, Gratiolet, of Owen, Pruner-Bey, and finally, at the last great work of de Quatrefages, “Introduction à l’Etude des Races humaines, Questions générales,” to discover the fallacy of the Evolutionists. We may say more: the exaggerations concerning such similarity of structure between man and the anthropomorphous ape have become so glaring and absurd of late, that even Mr. Huxley found himself forced to protest against the too sanguine expectations. It was that great anatomist personally who called the “smaller fry” to order, by declaring in one of his articles that the differences in the structure of the human body and that of the highest anthropomorphous pithecoid, were not only far from being trifling and unimportant, but were, on the contrary, very great and suggestive: “each of the bones of the gorilla has its own specific impress on it that distinguishes it from a similar human bone.” Among the existing creatures there is not one single intermediate form that could fill the gap between man and the ape. To ignore that gap, he added, “was as uncalled-for as it was absurd.” 2

Finally, the absurdity of such an unnatural descent of man is so palpable in the face of all the proofs and evidence of the skull of the pithecoid as compared to that of man, that even de Quatrefages resorted unconsciously to our esoteric theory by saying that it is rather the apes that can claim descent from man than vice versa. As proven by Gratiolet, with regard to the cavities of the brain of the anthropoids, in which species that organ develops in an inverse ratio to what would be the case were the corresponding organs in man really the product of the development of the said organs in the apes – the size of the human skull and its brain, as well as the cavities, increase with the individual development of man. His intellect develops and increases with age, while his facial bones and jaws diminish and straighten, thus being more and more spiritualized: whereas with the ape it is the reverse. In its youth the anthropoid is far more intelligent and good-natured, while with age it becomes duller, and, as its skull recedes and seems to diminish as it grows, its facial bones and jaws develop, the brain being finally crushed, and thrown entirely back, to make with every day more room for the animal type. The organ of thought – the brain – recedes and diminishes, entirely conquered and replaced by that of the wild beast – the jaw apparatus.

Thus, as wittily remarked in the French work, a gorilla would have a perfect right to address an Evolutionist, claiming its right of descent from himself. It would say to him, “We, anthropoid apes, form a retrogressive departure from the human type, and therefore our development and evolution are expressed by a transition from a human-like to an animal-like structure of organism; but in what way could you, men, descend from us – how can you form a continuation of our genus? For, to make this possible, your organization would have to differ still more than ours does from the human structure, it would have to approach still closer to that of the beast than ours does, and in such a case justice demands that you should give up to us your place in nature. You are lower than we are, once that you insist on tracing your genealogy from our kind; for the structure of our organization and its development are such that we are unable to generate forms of a higher organization than our own.


1  Professor Owen believes that these muscles – the attollensretrahens, and attrahens aurem – were actively functioning in men of the Stone Age. This may or may not be the case. The question falls under the ordinary “occult” explanation, and involves no postulate of an “animal progenitor” to solve it.
2  Quoted in the Review of the “Introduction à l’Etude des Races Humaines,” by de Quatrefages. We have not Mr. Huxley’s work at hand to quote from. Or to cite another good authority:  “We find one of the most man-like apes (gibbon) in the tertiary period, and this species is still in the same low grade, and side by side with it at the end of the Ice-period, man is found in the same high grade as today, the ape not having approximated more nearly to the man, and modern man not having become further removed from the ape than the first (fossil) man. . . these facts contradict a theory of constant progressive development.” (Pfaff.) When, according to Vogt, the average Australian brain = 99. 35 cubic inches, that of the gorilla 30. 51 cubic inches, and that of the chimpanzee only 25.45, the giant gap to be bridged by the advocate of “Natural” Selection becomes apparent.

The Secret Doctrine, ii 680-682
H. P. Blavatsky

Theosophy | By Their Fruits (Part 2), by Raghavan Iyer

 

Apparently, as H.P. Blavatsky stressed, this turns out to be more difficult for many people in the post-Aristotelian age in the modern West than it appears at first sight. Can obedience be combined with a tremendous courage? Can a lion be a lamb as well? Nothing is impossible for human beings when they master the art of acting from within without, from above below. The process could never be successfully reversed. On sacred matters can one say anything definite? If one can, any of us, should he say, or indeed what would be the point of so saying? But all of this must show itself by its fruits. Surely in regard to the latest of Teachers and their servants it would be true, as it was true of the oldest of Teachers who came to what we call the West, but who really came to the whole world from the East: “By their fruits they shall be judged.” Surely it could be said of any teacher what was true of the paradigm of all Teachers, the Buddha: he was a spiritual Teacher in that he gave lasting confidence to everyone else. Yet he did it in a way that was inimitable, in a manner that baffles analysis and defies imitation. Or we could even say that every true teacher must have something in common with Krishna, the planetary spirit who overbroods all Teachers, in that Krishna was always an enigma to everyone around him. It took Arjuna ten chapters to put right his relationship with Krishna, to whom he said, “I took you for a friend, I sported with you.” In other words, he tried to put him in a box. In the second chapter of the Bhagavad Gita, when Arjuna asked him to describe the characteristics of a wise man, Krishna did not say, “Look at me.” Krishna gave the most magnificent impersonal portrait. So surely then it is only on the basis of the invisible thirty-two psychological marks of the true Teacher that recognition and direct benefit are possible.

No Teacher can be separated from other Teachers, and when we consider the broader import of spiritual instruction we are really talking about a fundamental renaissance, heralding the civilization of the future. Those who feel they have found clues within themselves should treasure them. Those who want to help should perpetually prepare themselves. Certainly, no one need waste time and energy in speculating about it because this is not a matter which could be a fit subject for opinion or speculation. To put it in a more positive way, anyone’s opinion is as good for him as anyone else’s, because in the end it is his life; he has to decide. Many are called but few are chosen. But anyone could decide at any point to do the best he can in relation to the best he knows. In the talismanic words of Mahatma K.H., “He who does the best he can and knows how, does enough for us.” Anyone who does the best he can and knows how can do enough for the Messenger of the Fraternity, and indeed thereby himself become a messenger, in a sense. He becomes a teacher because he has shown what it is to be a servant.

So then it gets back to oneself. What can one do to prepare oneself? What can one do to be a worthy servant available at the right time to do that which benefits oneself on one’s Path, but which has meaning in relation to a much vaster vision and plan that can be seen with the mind’s eye? Though it is hidden, it can be seen to be partly manifest, even before it happens. What is there at this very time which is crucial in enabling us to be ready to be at hand in the future? This is the classic chela-like attitude that anyone can take, but it does not mean going here or there. It requires that wherever one is, one is willing to be wholly available. There is a protective blindness in regard to the future, a protective blindness in one part of our nature. In another part of our nature we know. It is said in the oldest traditions of humanity that the future is very dangerous knowledge. The future is a closed book at all times through the compassion of the universe, and in another sense through the inability of individuals to be ready to bear the knowledge. A Teacher once said that unless a person is so made up, or so ready in his total makeup, that nothing in the future will frighten him and nothing in the future will make him elated, he will not be ready to know what is in the future. That is surely as true now as always in regard to unveiling the future. Shaw’s remark about freemasonry and marriages applies even more to the code-language of Adepts – those who are outside will never know, and those who are within are pledged to eternal secrecy.

Behind all the rhythms of nature that are perceptible to us there are other rhythms that we impose. And behind these there is a kind of chaos in which there is another rhythm that is very mysterious. The Monad of man has no resting place. It is on a pilgrimage where it is ceaselessly changing conditions. There is no refuge, because if there were refuge for the Monad, it would no longer be involved in evolution. In that sense, one might say, surely at the end of evolution there must be a resting place. Whether there is or not, for a Monad that comes voluntarily into the process there is no resting place, in a more poignant sense. Above all, for the Son of Man who comes to bear a certain cross, there is no resting place in that he chooses a destiny within the framework of universal consciousness. We should reflect deeply on that extraordinary passage in The Secret Doctrine where we are told that in regard to the great cycle or circle of necessity, in the end the only choice is between being a volunteer in the iniquitous course and being involuntarily propelled into it. As Simone Weil said, you either choose suffering, or suffering chooses you. As Subba Row understood, the Logos chooses the Avatar who allows himself to be so chosen. This para-historical paradox is pivotal to the destiny of mankind in the culminating decades of this century.

October 9, 1971

Through many millions of world-ages many people hear, when they are born, neither my name nor of Perfect Ones, neither that of the teaching nor that of my community. Thus is the fruit of bad action.

But when gentle and forbearing beings originate here in this world of man, then because of their good actions they see me revealing the teaching as soon as they are born.

Gautama Buddha

Hermes, May 1976
Raghavan Iyer

Theosophy | By Their Fruits (Part 1), by Raghavan Iyer

   This mergence of the Jivanmukta into Ishwara may he likened to what may happen in the case of the sun when a comet falls upon it; there is in the case of the Sun an accession of heat and light; so also, whenever any particular individual reaches the highest state of spiritual culture, develops in himself all the virtues that alone entitle him to a union with Ishwara and finally unites his soul with Ishwara, there is, as it were, a sort of reaction emanating from Ishwara for the good of humanity; and in particular cases an impulse is generated in Ishwara to incarnate for the good of humanity. This is the highest consummation of human aspiration and endeavour.

Bhavani Shankar

 

Shankaracharya, in Self-Knowledge and The Crest Jewel of Wisdom, provides a wealth of instruction about meditation and particularly the relation between Viveka or discrimination andVairagya or detachment. Anyone attempting to apply these teachings will find that it is difficult, but he will also learn that it is extremely enjoyable. If thoughtful, he will conclude that, by definition, there could not be any fixed technique of meditation upon the transcendent. Technique is as particularized a notion as one can imagine, a mechanistic term. A techne or skill has rules and can be reproduced. On the other hand, that which is transcendental cannot be reproduced. It does not manifest, and it is beyond everything that exists, so there can be no technique for meditation upon it.

Another way of putting it, an older way and perhaps less misleading, is that of the Dalai Lama in his book My Land and My People, where in a few pages he explains that the teaching of the Buddha is both wisdom and method. They go together. Wisdom is meaningless to us unless there is a method. But the method itself cannot be understood unless in relation to wisdom. He says that there is a distinction to be made between absolute truth and relative truth. In other words, wisdom is your relationship to knowledge, and that relationship involves the means you employ. It is skill in the use of what we call knowledge, but skill that is neither rigid nor final in its modes of embodiment. There is a natural allowance for growth in oneself and within others.

In this arena of inner growth, he who really knows does not tell, partly because he knows that what is essential cannot be told, in the Socratic sense in which wisdom and virtue could never be taught. But partly also he chooses not to tell when telling is of no help. The Buddha, the Master of skillful means, said that whichever way you go – telling little, telling much, or keeping quiet – in every case you have created karma. There were times when the Buddha told nothing. There were times when he told a great deal merely by telling a fairy story but saying through it much more than is ordinarily possible. There were times when he said very little, and even this sometimes became a bone of contention among disciples. We are dealing with the karma involved in human encounters, and this karma must not be physicalized and only understood literally and exoterically. That is our whole tragedy. We have a physical conception of telling and of silence, but that is because we still have not understood that the real battle is going on between that subtle and rarefied plane of consciousness where the true suns are, and that boisterous plane of consciousness which is the astral light, where there is an immense array of inverted shadows and images.

Words like “telling,” “knowing” and “being silent” have to do with inner postures. As long as we seek external representations of the inner postures of the spiritual life, the spiritual life is not for us in this incarnation, and perhaps just as well. Maybe this is where humanity has grown up. There is now no need for mollycoddling. There is no need for giving in to the residual and tragic arrogance of those who are on the verge of annihilation, by pandering to them, yielding external tokens, or performing external signs. In this Aquarian age, spiritual life is in the mind, and people have got to be much more willing to assume full responsibility for all their choices. The reading of the signs requires a deeper knowledge, or a tougher kind of integrity. The only honest position for anyone is that, given whatever one thing he really knows in his life, in terms of that he is entitled, in E.M.Forster’s phrase, “to connect” – to connect with what is told and what is not told. People are brought up in India, and indeed all over the East, to know from early on that what the eyes are saying is important, what the physical gestures are saying is important, and that ominous or peaceful silences bear meanings of many kinds. Brought up in the rich and complex poetry of silence, gesture and speech through all the seven apertures of the human face, there is no such problem as between knowing in one particular sense and telling in one particular sense.

A lot of the subtlety has gone out of our lives, probably all over the world, but nonetheless we must recognize that wisdom always implies an immense, incredible flexibility of method. Let us not play games, least of all adopt sick and self-destructive attitudes, where in the name of belittling ourselves we insidiously belittle our Teachers. What this really comes to is blackmail and bargaining and they never helped anyone. On the other hand, let us genuinely be grateful for whatever we receive at all levels. It is part of the meaning of the Guruparampara chain that if one were smart enough to be benefitted at some level and to be ever grateful to the person who first taught one the alphabet, then one is more likely to make good use of Teachers in higher realms. We are dealing with something archetypal in which our whole lives are involved, but in which each one will be unique in his or her response.

Conversely, there is nothing predictably easy about the emergence, appearance, decisions, masks and modes of any spiritual Teacher. To assume that would be to limit the Fraternity or to imagine that an organization or some individuals could make captive or bind him. The moment such a being becomes captive, as Plato pointed out in the Republic, his withdrawal or his failure is inevitable. He will be free. And what he is really doing would be known only to him. What is important is to know that existentially he will point beyond himself to the Tathagatas. It is a hard lesson for the world – especially in a worn-out West that is still fighting the Middle Ages – that a true Master is a true servant. The reason why we find it difficult, even in our everyday language, to understand what is involved in being a Master is because we have ceased to understand what is it to be a true servant. When we can restore the full meaning and the grandeur to the notion of a true and totally reliable servant, only then will we understand what is it to be a Master of Wisdom and Method. Who are the Masters? They are the Servants of mankind. Who, then, must be their agents? Those who exemplify the art of service, who are unquestioning, total, and absolute in their obedience to their Gurus.

Contemplations …

“There is no method of self-knowledge. Seeking a method invariably implies the desire to attain some result – and that is what we all want. We follow authority – if not that of a person, then of a system, of an ideology – because we want a result that will be satisfactory, which will give us security. We really do not want to understand ourselves, our impulses and reactions, the whole process of our thinking, the conscious as well as the unconscious; we would rather pursue a system that assures us of a result. But the pursuit of a system is invariably the outcome of our desire for security, for certainty, and the result is obviously not the understanding of oneself. When we follow a method, we must have authorities – the teacher, the guru, the savior, the Master – who will guarantee us what we desire, and surely that is not the way of self-knowledge. Authority prevents the understanding of oneself, does it not? Under the shelter of an authority, a guide, you may have temporarily a sense of security, a sense of well-being, but that is not the understanding of the total process of oneself. Authority in its very nature prevents the full awareness of oneself and therefore ultimately destroys freedom; in freedom alone can there be creativeness. There can be creativeness only through self-knowledge.”

Ascended Masters and Channeling pt. 1 · Esoteric Empyre

Here we will speak about Ascended Masters and Channeling. An ascended master is essentially a true teacher who has left the Earth plane, and gone on to the next plane – a paradise where all who dwell there have achieved the same consciousness of Unselfish Love, Light, and Oneness. Because of their release from the consciousness limitations of the physical plane, they do have greater consciousness.  […]
