>The Way

>The Tao, The Ki, The Way, The Force, God’s Plan; all of these are of the same essence. We need to be in tune with the great stream of our being, something we ourselves generate as a manifestation of our life. As spiritual beings manifesting ourselves in the material dimensions, we create this stream, yet often forget what it is. We need to constantly align ourselves with the reality of our being-ness, to flow smoothly along, learning, loving, being gently carried to our destination in the highest heavens of God.

We need to remember our truest values and thus swim with our stream. Our pain and frustration comes from trying to swim against the current, with mangled conceptions of how things should be, when, in fact, a recognition and unfolding of the way they truly are is the most liberating force of all.

What could be greater than a free-will universe in which we willingly love God by loving one another? In which increasingly wonderful and beautiful forms evolve on planets, finding more and more of their creator as they thrive in sunlight and spiritual foods to come? As we find increasingly better things, we move onwards towards them. This shows our learning of higher morality and of the higher artistic possibilities of the universe.

God and the universe being an artist, we being children of same are likewise artists at heart. We create art simply by purely living our lives, expressing our deepest wishes whenever we live sincerely. Sincerity, sincerity and more sincerity- this is the way to enlightenment.

>Messages to the Universe

>Messages to the Universe (With thanks to Napoleon Hill!)

Work out what you would most like to accomplish or earn.
Decide what you would like to give in return, of equal value.
Write both down on a sheet of paper,
Let God and the universe arrange the rest- they will surely find a miraculous path with which to accomplish it.
Now, more than ever, we are free to choose our destiny.


>Sailing on Cosmic Seas

>Introduction

Glancing at the scientific table of elements, one wonders how the Grand Universe was made from things so small. Then, one realises- even the smallest of things is infinite.

When the first life was seeded on our planet, in that wondrous explosion as the comet hit- imagine the light created! Every day, with the Dawn-breaking of our nearest star, that moment happens anew.

The Light

Sailing cosmic seas between planets, we approach the guiding spirits of the architectural worlds, most especially Edentia. Lifeline to the cosmic source and light of the ages to those great spirits who design and maintain the vast creation, acting co-creationally with The Father with their great degree of knowledge and wisdom, bringing light and truth to lesser beings than themselves to just the necessary degree.

Truth-forgers who devote their lives to purifying and cleansing themselves, to inviting the divine will to manifest itself clearly through them, such will be touched by the gentle and loving manner in which the Great Father maintains the created universes, ensuring carefully, yet utterly effortlessly that-

* Everything has the opportunity to grow into the fullest realisation of it’s inner blueprint
* Nothing that might be too overwhelming is revealed, or even experienced by an evolving being. That which comes to each individual is something that they are ready for, that which is revealed is that which they can comprehend, or at least in some way integrate with their previous experiences.
* The overall balance of the cosmos is maintained despite allowing for such disturbances that are necessitated by the providence of free will, to all of God’s creatures in the created order of the cosmos.
* The seeming contradictions inherent in this arrangement are perfectly, flawlessly and ultimately resolved by the divine intelligence, which can anticipate all possibilities through awareness of all potentialities, Needless to say, such knowledge is rationed out to evolving beings and even immortal personalities on the basis of their neccessity to know, level of curiosity and degree of comprehension. It is on a ‘need to know’ basis’. For the universe is far more than a flatland or holographic reality. In fact, it is a multi-dimentional field of evolving experiences, in which all beings find their way back to their original source.

Life’s Adventure

In all of this, life is not just the learning experiences predicated by the traditions of the academic field. It is a great, vast adventure, in which all the answers are as yet unrevealed, all the questions not yet answered and the final end- a climax of unprecedented beauty and intensity- has yet to be experienced by the evolving soul.


>The Messiah

>

Part I- Who Was the Messiah?

I

The Messiah, the anointed one, is someone whom the ancient Hebrews, amongst others, had been awaiting for centuries.

There was hope that his coming would herald victory over their worldly and national troubles, yet despite this materialistic dream, the true victory is a spiritual event- then, as now, as it ever shall be in the endless worlds of the Creation.

II

When Jesus did come, he offered not the usual murky spells of religion, but a crystal clear and unending steam of religious truth, which is synonymous with pure love.

His aim was not simply to establish a new religion on the foundation of the old, but to reassert the truths that Judaism had long ago been based upon. He was making the ancient mysteries public for the first time. To do so required an utterly original teaching that could unify the deeply personal experience of God with social realities.

Jesus traveled widely, far more widely than The New Testament, as it has come down to us might seem to suggest. He dwelt long in the lands of the east, in places such as Egypt and Tibet, where he learning from the children of creation the mysteries of that creation, just as we do. The famous three wise men were not the only Masters to have a role in the upbringing of this uniquely gifted child…

III

Even now we can see that those truest to Christ’s ideal can be Easterners as much as those of the West, from Gandhi to Mother Theresa, to the Dalai Lama. This, the greatest religious event of human history, belongs to no one religion, much less any particular group of people.


Part II- What Did the Messiah Teach?



IV

Jesus, as a divine incarnation of The Eternal All, was utterly in tune with what this Eternal All Is and was thus uniquely qualified to reveal this knowledge. Mortal words are insufficient to portray this; yet, out of respect for our languages, so did he teach. Yet he knew, more than any, the supreme truth of action.

Jesus’ acts were not limited to the miracles, though these have long proved impressive, to minds that hunger for evidence of eternal power. His indelible fingerprint was that everyday gift of love, forgiveness, compassion, which he showed even in the smallest of ways. Those who had sinned were forgiven and sent forth to sin no more.

For the selfishness of sin brings the curse of death, by denying the very unity of life; whilst true love is life itself, freeing that great Self within us all. Such is his teaching. In his love, he gave his very life for us, despite our many sins.

V

By unveiling the mysteries of rebirth, in which we must lose our lives to gain them; in even giving his own self in such a way of selfless sacrifice; Jesus showed us the supreme path- of living for others without a thought for ourselves. In so doing, the old being must perish, to be born anew in unimaginable glory, just as the butterfly emerges from it’s chrysalis.

We caterpillars are all butterflies at heart, if we but enter the chrysalis of love and contemplation. As delicate, sensitive and sentient beings, our food for this is not just green leaves, but also that of the fresh spirit, which can be seen with newly opened eyes.

VI

Messiahs come whenever they are needed, to set us free from unliftable burdons, to light the path of truth. From the great silence, in the anticipation of our darkest and most challenging epoch, will come the Teacher of Love to guide us through it, to make it through the change to the other side.

Some day; if that day has not already come; shall appear the great Lord Matreiya, to show us the way from turmoil to peace, from a merely worldly to a spiritual understanding, descending for us from heaven in the greatest, deepest, glory and with the peace that heaven knows best. He will come when we are ready to understand what he has for us, when our accumilated power reaches such proportions as to be a danger to ourselves without proper guidance and supervision. He will teach us where to go from here- yet, as ever, though his mission cannot fail, it will be up to each of us as individuals whether we listen to what he has to say.

Science needs to be balanced with a truly religious love, with morality and an awe for what we encounter. With his eternally-wise words, speaking like the voice of many waters, the voice of the ancient of Days, he will restore our balance and remind us, that we are but children, children who should obey their Heavenly Father, whose love they can ever trust.

VII

The coming reign of God’s spirit- of a time when people see reality as it is, unstained by illusions- shall usher in the reign of the spirit, where in understanding and justice the, “lion shall lie down with the lamb and war be studied no more”. As ever, our greatest obstical; the mountain which God’s grace enables us to move; is our own selfish arrogance- and our finest hope, overcoming it to make a world in which we live for one another, just as was planned in Eden all along- in harmony with a very cosmic civilisation!

Thus may humankind and our home the Earth take it’s destined place in the celestial order, that vast family of planets, that lives as one for all and all for one, freely under The Father. Our home shall be no strange place to us- it will be filled with our deepest dreams.

THE END, of THE BEGINNING
of THE BEGINNING


>A Hymn to Life’s Joy

>There are so many choices, under this broad sky, with the love of our Father in Heaven to guide us. We often fear which way to choose, but there are really so many ways to live our life, with so many bright and wonderful experiences awaiting us. The universe is a school, with playgrounds to lighten it.

Here, we learn values: patience, kindness, temperance and compassion. We feel good when we care for others and our conscience troubles us when we make those mistakes that matter most. We learn the value, the total reality of love; a love which fills all things with the warmth and meaning of life itself. We learn of one another, especially of how to care for another sensitive, sentient being, with needs just like our own, but at any time different ones. We learn what real happiness is and how inexorably bound up it is with consideration for others.

All of this is sweetened by millions of beautiful play-things, just as rainbows follow rain. Walking, I see flowers spread perfume into the air and bright colours across the ground: birds sing sweetly, filling the skies with delicate music. Below us, the seas hold amazing life, from sunny tropical fish to the gigantic squid of the depths- whilst above, a plethora of planets and nebulae revolve, awaiting our discovery. Truly, this is a wonderful world, in a marvellous universe. To all this, our most natural response is thankfulness, praise-

Praise of the Heavenly Father who gave us all this,
Praise of the Eternal One, who could bring forth such wonders,
Thankfulness that He, in His grace, allows us to be co-creators,
Experiencing this fantastic universe as something of ourselves.

A personal experience, this life,
A joy granted equally to myriad beings-
To wisely choose our path through so many experiences,
Back to our Eternal Father, our God in Heaven.

Amen


>Taking Up the Cause of God

>Let me take up the cause of Eternal God, Lord of the Universe.

For does Satan not already have enough followers, in the false churches and boardrooms of the lands?

Let someone take up God’s cause,

To speak words of justice, righteousness and truest love.

Let me be one of his loyal servants.

It says as first commandment- “Love the Lord Your God with all of your heart and all of your soul”

Yet such love is given more commonly to Mammon, Maya, the host of myriad things.

Such has been the way for Millennia and will not quickly change.

I shall elucidate the situation in the following, so that those who wish to know may do so,

That we are forever called away from our selfish wills and into God’s whole one,

So that the very meaning of life may be made clear.

The Nature of The Rebellion
For the very beginning, when God breathed life into spirit-beings

It was clear that they would be encouraged, but not compelled to do His will,

To co-operate in the ordering of the unfolding Cosmos.

Great angels were given tasks in the measure of their granditude.

The joy and love this filled them with- joys and loves beyond the sphere of our imagining,

Was reward enough, as they gave more, so dids’t God’s spirit fill them with more to bestow.

The reward was in the action, a thing they understood not just philosophically, but in their experience from, one moment to the next,

As the assisted in the building of worlds and the administering of divine civilisations thereon

So is the vast Super-Temple of the Cosmos, the 7 universes as ordered by God, where freedom reigns throughout.

Yet for one higher angel, the joy of serving gave way to the search for other pleasures,

The desire to replace by denial the God from whom his powers and joys had come.

He would declare himself Lord, not content with his already lofty status as System Sovereign and claim the real God as simply non-existent.

Other angels followed, seduced by promises of greater power and the deceit that power over others is somehow greater than that spent in loving service.

Hence the problems in our planet and local system started, it’s administrative government corrupted, only to be fully replaced with the coming of Christ some 2,000 years ago, whist still much power is in the wrong hands.

Hence a situation that many mistake for the reluctance of God to solve our imminent problems, really one in which the powers originally granted to the rebellious angels and since thoroughly twisted by them into unrecognisable forms cannot simply just be taken away but rather need to be dealt with by divinely-loyal angels in the appropriate manner.

For God is a God of relatives, not one of absolutes- for in absolutes there can be no freedom, whereas in relatives there are infinite opportunities for various experiences.

To be Aligned with God

So, to align ourselves with God is to align ourselves with infinite rather than occasionally awesome and shocking powers that are simply finite. It is to align ourselves with selfless goodness, not with tactical and misleading displays of seeming good intentions.

It is a path to our true perfection whether or not we simply seek it- for any level of mind or intention can be a good one so long as we are enveloped in the will of The Divine.

It is a path that has it’s own hidden teachings, but no secret ones, all things being gradually revealed as the time is right, so as to enrich our hearts without confusing or controlling them.

Irony of ironies, our true freedom is in serving Him who made us, not in seeking to do simply as we please, except in the many cases in which the two naturally co-incide.

For The Lord, creator and Lord of nature just as much as of us, does not contradict such natures as we have but reveals their true meanings to those ready to know of them.

Service to Others and Self-Maintenance

Whilst God does NOT want us to turn our powers over to the rebellious ones, neither does he want us to tie them up and become ‘little people’ incapable of happiness or self-expression. Our sacrifice is not of our nature or of happiness- God is a liberating God, as any giver-of life must needs be.

Let not the various mis-representations of divinity blind you to the actuality of the divine love and grace in it’s true and gloriously generous form.

Any sacrifices asked of us are in the name of a higher liberation and a higher joy. Any sufferings are unintended consequences of ours or other’s sins.

Higher worlds of indescribable beauty and joy await us on the path of angelic and God-perfection. These are just as real as our own and in terms of their clear revelation, even more so.

Yet even so, God wants us to be free to enjoy the life we have now, a freedom that can only come from following Him and thinking for ourselves that this is the way to go.

Hence the bizarre phenomenon (from a believer’s perspective) that a wise atheist is so much closer to the path of Truth than a deluded theist. Such is the unfortunate spread of false ideas pertaining to God.

The description is not the described.

Any story concerning god that contradicts His basic benevolent attributes is a false one- in this manner and with the aid of god’s Holy Spirit, can you discern the true from the false.

The powers of our mind and that of cosmic mind go together- to reach just for one is a path of delusion and the source of many a false teaching, with all the pain and suffering they cause.

The rational and the divine go together, science and art/religion are friends.

God reveals to those who seek, so seek and you shall find.

Our own life is the path to transcendence, we are given none other. So make the most of it.

Paths to Transcendence

God has revealed many of these both to us and our forefathers-

Yoga, Pranayama, Meditation, Worship, Melodic Music, Art, Nature-appreciation, Delicious foods, Exercise, Helping others

None is above any other, yet some depend on one another, whilst some may suit some natures more than others will.

It may be seen the masters of many of these forms, let us call them ‘true arts’ for now, have often come from the most humble of backgrounds, or have abandoned the ways and customs of higher ones.

Let this be further evidence of God’s omnipresence, that he is just as real to those below us as to those level as above. He is quite simply everywhere, all of the time.

The many-armed or eyed Eastern deities are a visual allusion to this, however grotesque they may at first appear to Western eyes.

Everybody seeks transcendent experience, the question being how safe and authentic ones can be offered.

For there are more things in Heaven and Earth than are dreamt of in our philosophies- a fact known deep in our hearts.

The societies of the future won’t just provide avenues for transcendence, they will fully emphasise them, yet they always need be balanced by the mundane realities of Earthly Existence.

For now, we should seek our spiritual food, whilst making sure that it of the nutritious thought.


>A Hymn to Cosmic Tranquility

>We hail you,
Oh Lord of the great milk-ocean,
Keeper of the seven great tidal paths,
Who guides us along the universal currents
To our destination

Lord of fate,
Who decides what is probable
Yet in his graciousness lets us decide what is possible
Through the great unveiling of laws
In the tide of progress.

In the harmony of the universal centre
We find the patterning of mind
The warmth of unity
In your embryonic centre
The dwelling-place of truth.

So please let our cosmic sailing
Come without danger
Lets the creatures of deep-space be unoffended
By our momentary intrusions
Into their domains.
