Ancestors Arriving

If our ancestors are on the way, presumably, they would probably have alerted the more conscious sections of humanity to their presence in one way or another.

Yet, who would they choose? Who, for them, would be representative examples of humanity, typical in the sense of being well-worked out, sincere, honest and humane? Perhaps the idea that they would go first to government officials or media representatives to ensure that they arrival is widely broadcast may be far from the mark. Such high-powered, competitive and aggressive people are not necessarily the best examples of the humanity they intended to foster on this Earth with their religion and various social and other teachings. The very concept of humanity suggest being humane, which such people, in the constraints of their job environments, can’t always be, as if they were, others would soon take advantage of them.

Also, there may be a preparation through ‘grass roots’ movements intended to precede this. Not wanting to impose their presence or ‘superiority’, which is ultimately technical and evolutionary rather than meaningfully moral, they would rather let themselves be gradually known by the decent people of the world than suddenly impose their power on humanity as a whole. If this is something like the mysterious, personal ways of God, its not because they are God or gods, but because they, having evolved more, are more like him in their wise way of doing things. In fact, they might well appear to us to be gods, which is at present undesirable, as they want to commune and meet with us, rather than be worshipped, a misunderstanding that mankind’s history may well be full of.

To flesh out this idea, I might add the kind of encounters that people have had through the ages with beings from UFO’s. Leaving aside the forgeries, which may well be many, we have a common thread of quite everyday people begin visited. Some of them went on to be prophets or religious teachers, as we can see from the stories which seem to be about this in the Bible, of Ezekiel’s encounter with a flaming chariot for example. Yet a lot of them are just ordinary people, whose lives may well have been changed forever, yet are not fully believed by others. Seeing how visitors from another world would be very scientifically sophisticated, belief, especially blind and unquestioning belief may well not be their intention. Scientific evidence, experiential confirmation, even telepathic communication may well be closer to what they want to encourage in us at this stage of our evolution. Geeks, rather than Bible bashers may well be their target audience and who after all are closer to the gentle, self-willed biblical prophets anyway?

So, let us assume that these visitations have been a frequent feature of our human experience, even a defining one, the same way a dog or horse values contact with a sentient human being. Let us assume also that since our science accelerated, particularly in the post-war years and beyond, so did sightings and even contact with these beings, seeing as we are now, more than ever, ready (or getting there) to naturally, humanely, sweetly communicate with begins who in some ways are our makers. Then could it not be assumed from this that a time would come when their arrival could be a publically acknowledged avert, known to humanity as a whole, a humanity who had carefully been prepared for this, not randomly as the pattern of sightings might seem to us from where we stand now, but rather wisely and intelligently? An intelligence that not only respects our intelligence, but respects us for who we are, alert, intelligent beings capable of amazing things- a fellow sentience many footsteps beyond us but wizened enough not to be arrogant for this reason? A compassionate, warm and loving intelligence, who finds us on the verge of readiness for a more public appearance?

So what can we do to bring this stupendous and monumental event into being? First of all we need to recognise
it’s historical (or, if you prefer, post-historical) inevitability. We need to take in the evidence of past encounters as to what kind of beings our ‘gods’ really are and prepare accordingly, looking at contemporary accounts as well as those embedded so thoroughly in the world’s religions,unfortunately clouded with as many fantasies as facts in the years which followed. Then we need to look at what form such an event might take. In the next post, we will take a closer look at that and prepare for the greatest event to take place after the completion of the whole historical cycle leading up to it, leading to our maturity as a planetary species aware of who and what we are to a sufficient degree to handle contact with a higher form of life in a peaceful and communicative way.

Our Ancestors

There is a widely held opinion that, as we approach the end of this world cycle, we reach a point in which a nexus of elements will ensure we evolve to the next level of beingness. Just as a teenager grows into an adult, so do we as a race. Evidence of this happening is to be found in our highest technologies, which in a make or break system, we have survived. Despite repeated uses of nuclear weapons and disasters involving nuclear technologies, we are still here. Problems regarding our uses of genetic technology have yet to emerge, yet is increases in sophistication by leaps and bounds. How can we have such knowledge without growing up from within as well?

This leads us to another historical inevitability- the re-establishment of contact with our technologically proficient ancestors. Whilst it may well be true that God is at the source of all creation or evolution, that doesn’t mean he chooses to do everything directly, as a dictator would. Rather, he allows the universe to evolve itself, in accord with basic helpful blueprints. God is a God of love, not force.

Yet it is easy to postulate that we have ancestors existing in the universe, perhaps not so far away, but what could we know about them? Well, if they are in fact ancestors, who helped not only breed us in our primitive state and perhaps level up our ancient genetic code by actually inter-breeding with us, there would probably be records of them kept somewhere. as some have postulated (though I’ll admit, never proved). One of the most interesting examples of this is the account given by the Dogon tribe, in Sudan, who say that beings from the sky came down and bred with us, teaching farming and other skills in our collective infancy. Not only that, but they claim to recall where they originated- from one of the twin stars of Sirius (yes, I’m serious!). They hold that they are amphibious, fish-like beings (Admiral Akbar, perhaps), which, with our love for all things aquatic might well be something we have in common with them. You can see more here.

In the next post, we will look at who our ancestors may well be and their methods for having communication for us even now.


On Opportunities

Recently, I have been wondering about how opportunities enter the world and what is really going in with them. First of all, opportunities can in some ways appear as in-causal- they appear out of the blue, it seems, as nothing we can do can make them manifest. We can prepare for opportunities, we can make the most of them, we can even learn how best to recognize them. But one thing we can’t do, any more than we can create a bright, sunny day, is bring them into being.

Try as we might, they are something beyond our control to manifest, at least in terms of our waking consciousness. They are a gift from God’, a blessing.Yet it is in our own hands how we appreciate this blessing.

Now, before I go on to say more, I want to note that this blog is primarily a spiritual one, but it takes the view that the spiritual in every way can affect the material. There is no hard and fast line between the two. Yet whilst for most people the real is best embodied from their experience in the physical, material reality they inhabit, we take the view that the spiritual is in fact primary and expressing itself through the material world, rather than it being merely the subtotal of people’s dreams and imaginations. Nothing good comes from the material world as such, it is incapable of emanating spiritual values of love, truth or beauty. They are from the spiritual that supersedes and precedes it on every level. The invisible made manifest, if you like. My intention is not to argue the case, as this is something that can be demonstrated, but perhaps not proved. A hard-core materialist will not be convinced in any case, and trying to do so is way out of the scope of what we are attempting to elucidate here, though even so we hold that divinity will eventually, through it’s manifestations, make it’s presence known in all lives and all will eventually be ‘convinced’.

Whilst we cannot control the manifestation of opportunity, the appearance of genuine reward, we can invite it into our lives. Our consciousness is not left defenseless. It is perfectly natural that people seek for opportunities, that they train and practice for jobs with the intention that they get employed to use those specific skills. The problem in so many cases is not whether this dream is realistic or not, but whether they are going about it in a way that is likely to produce the affect they desire. In a sense, what is realistic is governed most primarily by what, deep down we feel is realistic. Not that by force of will or good habits we can manifest it… more to the point by such good habits and a pure, crystal-clear mind we can just invite it, sending a signal to the intelligent cosmos that we are ready.

My philosophy is, in a nutshell, ‘as above, so below’. Just as we have training and interviews for earthly jobs, so do the same things happen on a spiritual level. The invisible world is peopled by a host of beings, spirits and angels, who are entrusted to run the cosmos through a process originating and ultimately directed by God the Father, a cosmic father who knows each of us intimately and cares with a complete and loving heart. This may sound sentimental, but why shouldn’t it be true? That being said, if people find it hard to believe in this, it doesn’t disqualify them from his help. The government is in charge, whatever people think about it. Unemployment insurance can’t be denied people just because they have a hostile attitude towards authority, for instance. Their opinion is up to them, it may well be based upon bad experiences, though it is hoped that they will eventually differentiate between unworthy authorities working in their own interests and legitimate ones deserving of their respect. Mature people will also co-operate with important necessities whether or not they respect those ordering them.

People shouldn’t steal from shops, for example, whether or not they respect the shopkeeper or the police in charge of ensuring security. We are living in a universe made and upheld by God, whether or not we acknowledge that God and love him for all that he has done. A free universe, or a free country could operate one another way. You are no more forced to bow before images representing God than those of a decent secular leader. This, indeed, is a sign of both God’s security in his infinite power and his tolerance of human freedom. Although he would love to be worshipped and realises all the good it could do for his creatures, he neither requires nor demands it. there are indeed other ways to reach him and in a sense many indirect ways to be worshipful… what counts most of all in this is how we lead our lives.

So, in this roundabout way, we come to the central thesis here- that opportunities are something we attract by having a clear and open mind and by being ready for them. The universe is neither as chaotic nor as random as it appears. The incredibly complex connection between forces operating in it may at first appear to be randomness, but this can be seen through by seeing the patterns that lie behind this, which a discerning mind can see through the smoke, as it were, or by just having a childlike faith that all is being divinely directed from on high and not being troubled by the convolutions that could easily obscure it. These are in a sense the religious and ‘scientific’ methods- faith or reason and are not mutually exclusive- you can have faith and still have an urge to understand. This is using the word science in the broad sense of rational reasoning, not in the narrow definition of the activities of professional scientists in their spheres of enquiry.

So it has been shown that opportunities do arise, but how to make the most of them? First, we have to go with their flow, see where they take us. If it is to a place we don’t wish to be, we certainly have the right to withdraw or define the boundaries which we are comfortable with. There is no force, no pressure. Just opportunity, waiting to be found, invited, by our very attitude to life welcoming it.


Risen Before the World

Now, I am risen in glory before the world. Once, showing my meekness, I was alternatively praised and scorned, loved and feared, seen and ignored- whilst now I reveal my true glory, untouchable by the world of change and these dimensions of seemingly limited illusions. In love I came and in love I shall depart, never really to leave, but merely to wait for the right time to appear again.

My body of light is in truth like the essence within you all, would you but know it. My mastery over the powers of ‘life’ and ‘death’, your inheritance just as much as mine; as beings of eternity needing none other than love and light to sustain your true and unsullied natures.

Yet it is not with these teachings of ultimate truth only that I wish to leave you. They are things you will learn in due course, if you just open your eyes, your real eyes, those of the spirit- to truth. I want to be sure to leave you, for this moment, with the knowledge of the immanent, the trut of the world around you, within you, right now, accessible now. That is- to love. To love your neighbour, your friend, your enemy, even your inner self- just as you would yourself, giving whatever you can to their happiness, their safety, their feeling of belonging.

This inner choice is the path to peace that you all seek, the way to fulfillment. It will not always be easy to love one another; but if anything in me is valued by you, this is what you can do for me. The simplest of things can seem the hardest. Yet, in truth, it is the only meaning to be found in the seemingly endless cycles of illusion opening up before you, on your great journey back to The Father himself.

I leave you with this, my love, the spirit of love. Have faith that it will endure, no matter what Earthly distraction seems to obscure it, not for a moment will it leave you, not for a moment. In time, you will be ready for the spirit of truth in all it’s glory. To see the truth in all things, infinite and eternal, shining like a light from within them. Until then, love those around you for who they are, seeing the goodness in them you can help to heal them, to return them, so that they remember their divine origin; so easily forgotten in a comparative wasteland of illusions, so soon to pass when the time of the great remembering arrives.


I Came not to See or Conquer, I Came in Love.

To show that even in a world that faces so much confusion, creates so much needless misery, there is still hope- not just hope for a better future, but hope for a realised present. The signposts of love breath from every tree, every flower, emerge with every blossom. They warm the heart, bearing fingerprints of divinity wherever they appear.

Appear they will, bidden or not- yet they will only appear to those who choose to focus on them- for here lies the choice; to love or not to love, to experience the mirror of our own soul’s inner beauty or to see illusions in it instead. To feel the warmth of God’ loving hands, as reflected though our selves, or to pass by, heedless and ignorant. We always have the choice.

Which leads me to say- what really is love- can we ever be totally devoid of it? I would have to say- no, not at all- for love is our very essence, the very makeup of our being. In the beginning was the Word and the word was love. How indeed could it be any other way, for what other pathway is there to and from eternity?

Love is here in whatever the degree- and the greater the degree, the greater the joy, whether or not happy circumstances immediately accompany it’s realisation. At the base there is love for oneself, or the pursuit of those activities that one loves. Then it grows- some would say with maturity, though I’d qualify that by saying it is the particular road to maturity chosen- to love of another, then love of the family that they co-create (much as we already co-create our lives with God, whether consciously or not). Some let this grow further, into love for their country or religion, or even for the world as a whole. The ultimate growth is love for everyone around us- a love based on the former ones, yet just as steady and vital as hem. Such a love is much more than mere wishful thinking- it is the very realisation of who we are, moment by moment loving the appearances of God around us, His manifestation in others- and loving them for who they are.

Mere abstract love can be no more than hypocrisy, wishful thinking, self-deception and the deception of others, intentional or not. The true love is realised in action, in honest intention, in heartfelt regard. Hense this growth of Love that God wants from us, whether it be in tis world or the next. This is the change that we can do in the moment- to bring all our thought over to those of love and forgiveness, right now- to endlessly transform our inner landscape in the here and now. It is the timeless action of the sincerely religious- the action that reaches out beyond the apparent to the stars themselves and even beyond. The message that echos in eternity, that inspires and moves creatures everywhere. That one inner action- to be true to ourselves and our realisation of love- is the first and final action that bridges the apparent gap between us now and in eternity.

Only fear holds us back- a fear of illusions that must be cast aside, it’s ice melted into a puddle of nothingness, so that we can be free, free, free! Love is who we are and where we came from. The word was love and it still is now. The only thing we have to lose is our needless fear of being who we really were all along.

Amen
Starfire.

2) There are no yesterdays to regret,

3) Only endless presents, playing out simultaneously.

4) Filled with joy at the freedom of existence.

5) There is no knowledge of sadness,

6) For in this endless present, all wounds are as healed.

11) Revealing the grandeur of a far greater vision-

12) The truth of the divine.


>The Divine Broadcast (4) Evolution (For Children)

>

1) If our world of experience is medium-sized,

2) When compared to the vastness of space, or the intricacy of the small,

3) Let’s take a look at the small, to see what we can learn.

4) Is heaven as clear here as in the large?

5) Can the small take our breath away?

6) I’d say it can!

7) Also, not being used to it, it can startle us every day.

8) The heavenly of the tiny!

9) The intricacy of developing life!

10) We were once small creatures, but are now huge by comparison.

11) But are we really so big after all?

12) Are we really as strong and powerful as we like to think?

13) Or are we, in truth, no less vulnerable than a sparrow, when seen in the great context of things?

14) Are we just as dependant on God’s loving protection as she?

15) Seeing this, we know we must surely be blessed, just to be alive at all.

16) So we came to a sense of life’s meaning- to be appreciative and thankful, for all that we have-

17) Every last moment, of every single day.

18) For our continued life is indeed a miracle!

19) Just like those of the birds, of whom it is said we evolved from not so long ago (in the great scheme of things)!

20) “The source of all Miracles is Michael himself, for reality is the story of the miraculous taking place”… Miracles are of Michael.
