Fear is a Handicap, A Guest Post by Michael Brine


By Michael Brine

In 2004 I wrote the material (below the poem) to a friend with whom I was having an exchange. In 2006 it was later published on a website who had asked permission to use it. I have decided that perhaps the time has come to give it a wider audience given the times we are living through. Also, may the wisdom of the poetry of Baha’u’llah touch your heart. Enjoy! M. B.

“Oh Son of Spirit!

I created thee rich, why doest thou

Bring thyself down to poverty?

Noble I made thee, wherewith dost

Thou abase thyself? Out of the essence of

Knowledge I gave thee being, why seekest thou

Enlightenment from anyone beside me? Out of

The clay of love I moulded thee, why doest thou busy

Thyself with another? Turn thy sight onto thyself,

That thou mayest find Me standing within thee,

Mighty, powerful and self-subsisting.”

              Baha’u’llah

There are many voices out there as you are aware. It remains I feel, for each of us to use our intuition as to what we are drawn to explore and indeed listen to. Personally, I have for years felt that we have been seeded from other star systems and that our different races represent the particular star system we may have come from. I do, however, feel there is a different story for the indigenous peoples of the earth, but I am not sure exactly how, for they are very much more in tune with this planet than are us ‘others.’

Getting out of the “Box” of our conditioning is the first big step. Once we have done that it remains for us to look around at this new unfolding landscape (as we rub our eyes and get used to this new light) and see/feel what we are drawn to explore and pursue.

As you well know, we have been ‘ruled’ by fear and it is this that has controlled us over millennia by forces that have not operated in our best collective interests. (Religions have done it very effectively through ‘judgmental’ motifs, et al.) Who the ‘controllers’ are behind the scenes is a matter of speculation. There are ‘takes’ on this and I’m sure you’ve heard them. Again, intuition here is the best guide – at least for me. It is, however, very important not to get caught up in any fear motif for this only muddies the waters.

Awareness is one thing and throwing light on a negative situation is very valid to help inform – but never get caught up in acting out of fear itself. Indeed this whole epoch we are traversing through is an incredible time of discovery about who we really are. While we may see desolation and tragedy taking place everywhere around us, it is perhaps a prelude to a new unfolding discovery about our very existence and what it is all about! You cannot build a new structure on a crumbling foundation —so the ‘old’ must be exposed and removed to allow for the new growth. I feel that is what is taking place as we move through these disturbing times and most importantly – for me at least – is that we have the support of our Star family at this exceptional time with the codicil, of course, of non-interference unless we collectively ask them to. I suggest that the amazing Crop Circles are coming from the concerned beings who surround us. They come in Love.

The Marks of An Angel and Why We Should Pray, from Sophy Burnham’s A BOOK OF ANGELS

I took Sophy Burnham’s A BOOK OF ANGELS from the shelf again last night. I didn’t even get through the Introduction before I grew too tired to continue, yet I felt loved, warmed, stronger. If ever there was a down-to-earth book filled with stories about how much our guardian angels love and care for us, it is hers. I thought I’d share a few paragraphs, hoping they will make you feel stronger, too.

She has interviewed/received hundreds of accounts from regular people like you and me who were visited by angels. The way it happens is always the same:

  • “They always say, “Don’t be afraid. Fear not. Leave everything to us.” They never say, “Look at the mess you’ve made of things now!” They never scold or criticize.”
  • “Second, you are filled with joy. With warmth, light, a sense of safety. Of home. Or Mother—the mother of your heart. Indeed, so many people report this feeling and always in the same words that it’s worth noting.”
  • “Third, you may not believe it happened—that an angel came to you—but you cannot forget it. And here’s another curious thing. The memory not only does not fade but it gets stronger with the passage of time, and this is unlike normal memory, or dreams, which fade with time.”

In the following story, Sophy learns about prayer. One day she was talking with her angels and asked a question. The answer was, ‘Pray;’ and she said to them, ‘You already know what I want. Why should I pray?’ The answer came at once, then divided itself into three sections. Continue reading

40-Days to Real Forgiveness, My Story Using J. Everett Irion’s Wisdom

Forgiveness. Jeez, what a subject. The deeper the shock of betrayal, the more we need to experience and process our pain—and the more we need to forgive. But forgiveness is hard. After years of therapy, I know that forgiveness is strongly recommended for our own healing, but it goes against who we are and what happened: “You hurt me. You broke my heart and I will never recover!”

Though I had read the November/December 2007 issue of Edgar Cayce’s Venture Inward magazine when it arrived, I had forgotten its contents. I pulled it out of a stack one day and opened to an article called The 40-Day Forgiveness Prayer By J. Everett Irion. “Hmmm,” I thought. “Forty days? That’s gotta be a serious forgiveness prayer. Could this work?”

On the Feminine Role in the New World, Quoted from the book: “Servers of the Divine Plan”

“This book is dedicated to all those intrepid souls who have sacrificed their exalted spiritual freedom in voluntary service to humanity and planet earth at this time of greatest need.”

Quoted from: Servers of the Divine Plan, Pg. 49

“It is evident that there has been an extreme patriarchal imbalance upon Earth for a very long time. The innate creative and intuitive qualities of the feminine spirit have been long-feared by distorted male perception, and as a result women have been repressed, dominated and persecuted throughout history. In order to bring equilibrium in a world that has known so much control by the male force, the majority of Server-souls upon Earth at this time have chosen to incarnate in female bodies. AS agents of change, these valiant envoys of the New Spirit bring to the planet a very high concentration of feminine power that will presently resolve the patriarchal problem upon Earth once and for all, restoring much needed balance and harmony that will benefit everyone in the New World, both women AND men. During the time leading up to the Great Transition, however, and since male authority is still presently the controlling global power, female Servers will continue to experience something of the anguish of the collective persecution endured by so many women over the ages. Nonetheless, they are assured that their long awaited time of liberation and victory is today at hand.”

How Can We Help the Hopi People? A Guest Post by Thomas O. Mills

By Thomas O. Mills
Email:
tmills1870@aol.comAuthor: The Book of Truth and Stonehenge, If This Was East

I am sometimes asked, “How can we help the Hopi People?” Having lived with the Hopi for a number of years, I can assure you that they do not need our help. They have been trying to help us, all four races of man, black, yellow, red, and white, from the beginning of time.The Hopi society is not based on money, owning property or collecting things. Green fields, rain, traditional ceremonies and laughter are all that they really need. Whenever electricity, running water, heaters, televisions, automobiles, freezers, or jobs enter the villages, only problems arise. How do I pay the bills for these things? I have ceremonial obligations and crops to plant; how can I work five days a week? How can they expect me to devote all my time for money? I never needed money before; why do I need it now? These are just some of the things I have heard on the reservation. An old Hopi joke is: Before the white man came all I did was farm, hunt, and take part
in my ceremonies. Now I have to work, to make money, so I can farm, hunt, and take part in my ceremonies.

I have always been amazed at how eager a true Hopi is willing to fast, pray, and devote his time for the wellbeing of all four races of man, no matter how terrible these races have treated the Hopi. It is still remembered how Kit Carson road up to an old unarmed Hopi man planting his crop and shot him in the head for no reason. We name cities, streets and mountains after Carson, and the Hopi lost one of their ceremonial leaders and had to eliminate the ceremony he was responsible for. Continue reading

The Final Freedoms and a Comment by Michael Brine, A Guest Post

To Notes Along the Path’s readers: I recently received an extensive email from Robert Landbeck, email: goliah@gn.apc.org, regarding a book entitled The Final Freedoms; he left this link: http://www.energon.org.uk

I was struck by the introductory message, but found it intellectually demanding, so I asked my online buddy, Michael Brine, to read it and tell me what he thought. His thoughts are below the quoted material. I also found the information that follows from Klatu, which gave a summary of the book and helped me to better understand the intention of the writer.

Quoted from the second website, written by Klatu, (dedicated to the future of our planet and mankind):

“Almost four years ago, a manuscript started circulating on the web titled, The Final Freedoms. The ideas contained within it are profound and new not just in the public domain but to history itself, and however implausible this may sound to the modern mind, this small work may hold the potential for changing the very course of human history. The reason for such an audacious statement becomes self-evident to those who take the time to fully explore its insights.

Using a synthesis of scriptural material from the Old and New Testaments, the Apocrypha, The Dead Sea Scrolls, The Nag Hammadi Library and some of the world’s great poetry, it describes and teaches a single moral LAW, a single moral principle offering the promise of its own proof; one in which the reality of God responds to an act of perfect faith with a direct, individual intervention into the natural world; correcting human nature by a change in natural law, altering biology, consciousness and human ethical perception beyond all natural evolutionary boundaries. Intended to be understood metaphorically, where ‘death’ is ignorance and ‘Life’ is knowledge, this experience, personal encounter and liberation by transcendent power and moral purpose is the ‘Resurrection,’ the justification of faith and foundation of righteousness.

Trials of this new teaching are under way in several countries. For those individual who can set their sights and measure progress above the existing political status quo, who are able to think for themselves and imagine outside the historical cultural box, who are willing to learn something new and stand against the stream of fashionable thought and spin, an intellectual and moral revolution has already started with the most potent Non Violent Direct Action any human being can take for peace, justice, change and progress. Here is a link to the book itself, which is free to download at: http://thefinalfreedoms.blogspot.com/.”

By Michael Brine, A Response to a Robert Landbeck Email

I was very impressed with this. One thing they should do is to make clear at the
beginning that in talking about ‘religion’ they are talking about the three Abraham based religions–Islam, Judaism and Christianity–which are Western-based. In fairness, the more Eastern religions are not so much religions in the accepted sense of the word but more spiritually-based, should I say, philosophies? They are also much more tolerant of each other and share by gathering together and sharing feelings/thoughts.

I experienced this when I lived in Malaysia in the late 1950s. A friend and I would go down to the Buddhist temple about once a week and sit on the porch of the head monk–The Venerable Dhamananda–originally from Ceylon, now Sri Lanka, and explore our insights in a most tolerant and respectful way. At that time, I was a member of the Theosophical Society founded by a woman named Madam Blavatsky (around 1875).

I applaud the recognition (by the author of The Final Freedoms) that Emperor Constantine’s influence in all of this was politically based. I feel this is a most important element and dove tails with what Anastasia (http://ringingcedars.com/) has told us and the fact that the fire that destroyed the Library at Alexandria was no accident, but effectively destroyed all our true past history which had been preserved there on parchments, scrolls and other recording elements used in earlier times.

There was also a reference to ‘Understanding the Natural World,’ which I liked, but the
email contained no mention that we are a part of this ‘natural world’ and not separate from it. Perhaps the book itself explains more. In this, of course, I am also focusing on the cyclic element that all nature passes through and the population explosio occurring at this time. Both elements are not considered, most likely because the consequences of what the Mayans call the “End Times” are hard to handle.

The email on ‘Final Freedoms’ also talked about a ‘direct intervention in the natural
world to create a new moral reality’ — not quite sure what they mean by this. To interfere or try to interfere with Nature will cause our collective downfall and to use the word “morality” smacks of a religious influence, which, of course it may be. Perhaps they mean a divine intervention.

They make a statement that, “The world is literally dying for want of new direction
and this teaching may hold both the potential and means for change,” etc. Again as I have said so often, ‘You cannot build a new building on a rotten foundation, so there must first be a Cleansing before the rebuilding.’ It is this, in my opinion, we are seeing and will witness more dramatically in the immediate days ahead. Increasing weather anomalies, earthquakes, and other upheavals would appear to be increasing at a substantial rate–wouldn’t you agree?

On health issues, I applaud their recognition that by building up our immune system we can stay healthy way beyond what we are witnessing within our societies at the
present time. Sadly, the email mentions building up the immune system, without
focusing on the true CAUSE of our ill health. This ‘cure’ mentality is good for the pharmaceuticals and the Allopathic doctors, but not for us as a whole. “There’s none so blind as those who don’t want to see.”

Regarding ‘war,’ et al, I have always felt that if we can get rid of the lines on a map
that we call countries, that so effectively divide us from each other, and learn to work together as in communities, this would create respect and healing between our different races. As with dogs we are all one humanity, just different breeds! 🙂

When we use this reference to our “Oneness” do we really understand this? All life, I repeat, ALL life, is One in this sense. The energy that resides within us is the same energy that resides in ALL things whether in humans, dogs, trees, fish, water, wind or even a stone. If the energy stops passing through it that form, whatever it is, it no longer exists.

One final comment that is very important is that we must stop these sickening divisional attitudes of the superiority of men over women! We see this especially within
the more extreme Islamic faiths but it is also true within our own culture also–maybe a bit more subtle–but it is there.

In closing, may I recommend a web site that is very profound and visionary: www.wingmakers.com Start with the film; then go to the interviews with Doctor Neruda found on the left hand side of the screen. Then check out the teachings of the Wingmakers, especially the “Lyricus” teachings. Yes, there is a lot to see on this site but I feel the time taken to ingest its essence will more than compensate for the
time taken. Good luck!

An Answer to Our Collective Prayer, A Guest Post by Sharie from Sending Joy

Happiness is Essential by Sharie of Sending Joy

“I want to see the world through God’s eyes today.”

There is only one way to see the world and still be at peace.  That is through the eyes of God. Whenever we can’t understand what we see or the reason we are having a particular experience, let’s not try to figure it out. We can’t.  Our job is to simply be still and pray, “God let me see this through your eyes.” And peace will flood through us and we will know that beneath the devastation and beyond the insanity, there is a place where all is well.

No matter how terrible things look, there are always underlying miracles and blessings working to make corrections. Those miracles are God’s gifts and we must allow them and trust in them, be grateful for them and surrender everything else. In this way, are we now an instrument of peace, a channel for healing and a part of the solution.

One of the biggest mistakes we make is not recognizing our part in the healing of the world. We may think we want to be happy, but if we’re not it isn’t hurting anything. The fact is our happiness is essential to God’s Plan for our healing and the world’s.

May you walk in the world today with a happy heart and God’s vision for seeing all things through His eyes.

Egyptian Murals Seen From the Perspective of the Hopi Creation Story, A Guest Post by Thomas O. Mills

A Universal Language That Time and Scholars Cannot Change
By Thomas O. Mills
Author of The Book of Truth A New Perspective of the
Hopi Creation Story
and Stonehenge, If This Was East

When I look at translations of Egyptian writings and murals, I see where many of their ideas are really based on just on one idea: The pyramids were built for a pharaoh’s tomb and after that, everything else just seems be added on to fit this hypothesis of death and tombs.

When I look at the murals with an open mind, and a point of view based on the Hopi Creation Story, there seems to be a different conclusion . . . a universal language that scholars or time cannot change.

It is the Hopi belief that we are in the fourth world or time. The Creator has had to come back to Earth and help populate (Create) the planet after three global catastrophes. The first world was destroyed by fire, the second by ice and the third by a flood of biblical proportions.

Figure 1

Figure 1: Creator is Creating when seen at this angle. Figure 1 shows the order of creation; From Peter Tompkins, Secrets of the Great Pyramid, Page 258

Figure 1 Explanation: My definition of the mural is: Positive, fertility, productivity, procreation and life giving. The Creator is shown with an erect phallus, a universal symbol of creation, creating four beings or guardians that represent one of each of the four worlds or times, past to the present. Whenever you see these figures represented in another mural, you know which world or time the mural is talking about. The first world is represented by a human figure with a beard; the second world is represented by a baboon-headed figure; the third world by the jackal or dog figure; and last, the fourth world (the present world) is represented by a hawk-headed figure. The Creator is lying at an angle that I imagine has to do with the earth’s tilt or angle, based on the Hopi Creation Story. He has the head of a snake in his right hand and its coils represent our path through the different worlds or times.

Figure 1 is a twenty-first century Dynasty drawing from Albert Champdor’s The Book of the Dead. The standard definition is that Figure One shows a mummy with phallus erect sliding into the Seventh Region of the Lower World, described as being “filled with serpent’s coils and the four sons of Horus who protect the viscera of the dead.” My research has not yielded an explanation of why or how the Egyptologists came up with this explanation.

Exact Location of the Hall of Records Based on the Hopi Indian Creation Story, A Guest Post by Thomas O. Mills

By Thomas O. Mills
email: tmills1870@aol.com

Before I lived on the Hopi Indian Reservation, I had always been told there were only two options as to where we came from or how we were created on Earth. One option was that a Spiritual Being created all of us from a white man and white woman, and the other was that we crawled out of the sea or evolved over many years of evolution.

After living with the Hopi for four years, I now believe we have a third option and if the Hopi are correct, this is the fourth time the Creator has tried to populate this planet. I believe there is a location, a Hall of Records, where he documented this information for us, using murals, text, and statues.

It is the Hopi belief that the Creator was traveling through space when he found Earth wobbling in space. He instructed his Nephew and the Nephew’s Female companion to stabilize the planet, to create all four races of mankind: black, yellow, red, and white; to distribute them around the planet and provide guardians to each race to teach them language, traits, customs, and religion.

The Nephew and his Female companion were to stay here on Earth to get the job done. They needed a place to stay, tools to do the job, and a labor force. It is my belief that the location where this happened is the pyramid complex in Egypt. I
think many of the temples located around the complex actually form the outline(hieroglyphic) of the Nephew, his Female companion, and the Newborn, or the Embryo, they created.

If I am correct, the Nephew’s tomb has already been found; he was buried in four gold coffins in a room full of treasures. The Female companion’s tomb, who the Hopi call Spider-Woman, has never been found. I believe when it is, it will contain the hall of records or the knowledge from the past. Edgar Cayce predicted the chamber would be
located beneath the right front paw of the Sphinx. Now we have a reason to look.

Our Suspicions Are Nearing Absurdity

I’ve decided to avoid any political debates or news reports about the coming elections. I mean, why bother? Politicians, pundits, lobbyists and expert-journalists are already so sure of their stances, there’s no room for hearing, for learning something new or learning from someone else. (You’re not listening if you’re thinking about what you’re going to say as soon as your opponent stops speaking.) A mindset of conservative vs. liberal is strongly in place and not just in America. But we Americans are really good at it–aren’t we?–so certain of ourselves and our opinions.

There was a time when people knew how to be civil, how to cooperate, how to care about everyone, how to respect others and how not to be so suspicious of the ‘other side.’ A friend of mine, a Christian conservative, believes that his difficulties are happening because God is making him stronger. People who have work and health insurance may have sold their souls, or some variation of this, to keep their jobs. In times of his personal prosperity, he is blessed by God; those who are suffering then should have been paying better attention to God’s laws. This is no way to live, so certain of our own convictions that we throw everyone else to the gutter, unwilling to see our own reflections in them.

Our opinions, our suspicions, are nearing the point of absurdity. The truth is, we are all so caught up in survival and/or acquiring and we spend so much time thinking about what is important to us, we can’t see the picture that is larger than ourselves. There are other people in the world!–each a child of God/Love/Great Spirit, each and every one loved by God, deserving respect for that reason alone. We are sisters and brothers, made from the same gene pool, cut from the same cloth, with only surface- variations like the color of our skin. We are created to embrace each other, to heal each other, to support each other. We are created for peace and togetherness but we have forgotten. Will any of our leaders hear the stories of our lives? Not in the current mindset, no, they won’t.

Signs of Our Times

I posted the video, The Quickening, yesterday (below this entry) after having watched only the first third of it and did not write an introduction. I should have and this is it.

The film is about the coming shift in consciousness; its producers (Awakening As One) align themselves with Carl Calleman’s view that the Mayan calendar end-date is October 28, 2011—not Dec. 21, 2012. The video can be summed up as a one-and-one-quarter-hour wakeup call that explores the history of the world through the steps of the Mayan pyramid/time capsule, which can be viewed as a record of humankind’s preordained invitation to spiritual evolution.

The main point of the video is that death and destruction, the end of the material world as we know it, long predicted by native cultures, is looming because a large percentage of us humans are stuck in materiality and will not move out of the false world of materiality into the oneness of spiritual unity until faced with our own death—perhaps not until we witness us destroying ourselves and the world in a nuclear WWIII. Therefore, the coming destruction of the material reality is the will of Spirit/God/Creator, a final invitation to join with Light and Love, to live a life not just about ourselves, but of service to Spirit and to others.

The Quickening depicts two ways of experiencing the next months: living with fear, in negativity and hate; or rising from the flames with a strong faith born of a spirit-based perspective, with hearts full of love and gratitude that Truth will, at last, be known. Those who choose unity, the producers report, will experience the destruction of this false reality with grace and ease. Others will live more like rabid animals, searching for food, for example, killing and stealing from whoever is in their way. The filmmakers recommend leaving large cities for the forests and mountains but remind us, also, that we are each exactly where we are supposed to be and if we cannot leave a city, we can connect with Mother Earth by thinking of water, a tree, or the earth under our feet.

To me, the most important point of the film is one that still echoes from the messages of Jesus Christ: Judge not lest ye be judged. The film suggests that the United Nations could call for (after severe destruction by natural disasters and terrorists, nuclear war and the appearance of fake or real alien beings) a one-world government, with a false leader who, for the price of obedience and subservience, will provide for our material needs. Some will accept these terms and others will rise against the one-world system, but it will be those who remain centered in spirituality, in oneness with the Divine Plan/Christ Consciousness, who light the way to healing by forgiveness of everything, offering love and acceptance to all who will accept it. During this period, we may each be asked to face the results of our own imbalances and errors—to see the seeds of darkness within ourselves, not just in others. This experience of humility will lead to oneness if we are willing to let go of our current warring mentality.

Also important are dates in August and September. During the period August 18-September 5, 2011, the filmmakers say a terrorist attack that could collapse the economy could happen, causing another depression and perhaps lead to WWIII.  The Hopi Indians have a prophecy that four celestial bodies will become visible in the ‘end times.’ Two Brothers (who had a hand in Creation), one the guardian of the north pole and the other the guardian of the south pole, will appear in the sky to return the earth to her natural rotation, counter-clockwise. The Blue Star Kachina will arrive and last, the Red Star Kachina, the Purifier. The makers of The Quickening state that the comet Elenin is the Blue Star Kachina and that when we can see the Blue Star, we will know that change is upon us. They also refer to the comets Honda and Levi.

Significantly, when Elenin was in some kind of alignment with earth on Feb. 23, 2010, there was a major earthquake in Chile; on Sept. 4, 2010, there was a large earthquake in New Zealand; and on Mar. 11, 2011, the catastrophic earthquake and resulting tsunami occurred in Japan. Elenin will be aligned with earth again on Sept. 26th and Oct. 16-17thth of this year. During this period we could see an orchestrated alien invasion, three days of darkness (which will come to an end–remain faithful) and more huge earthquakes. The filmmakers also report that on Nov. 3, 2011, earth will pass through the tail of Elenin. (Here is a link to NASA about Elenin, which states that the comet will have no effect on earthlings and there is no other celestial body, i.e. the Red Star Kachina, following it that threatens earth. Here is a link re: Elenin from Space.com.)

I’m posting this introduction to the video because the greed and self-possession of the powerful, which threatens to destroy our world and way of life (that is yet lacking for so many) could lead to our total annihilation. These men are out of control; we Americans, and others, have bought into their plans and Mother Nature and the Great Spirit are, at the very least, shaking us out of our stupor. Some people believe a peaceful, spiritual shift in consciousness is coming. I don’t know, of course, what will happen, but it is our obligation at this moment in time to discuss and consider the possibilities.

Inspiration from Wellesley Tudor Pole, A Guest Post by Michael Brine

By Michael Brine

Here are some thoughts and quoted material from Wellesley Tudor Pole, written in 1962. The insights of this remarkable being are truer today more than ever. Read and listen with your inner voice that beckons from deep within you, and reflect on the simple, yet profound, wisdom in these quotations from a booklet that was compiled by Oliver G. Villiers nine years after W.T.P.’s death, called Wellesley Tudor Pole, Appreciation and Valuation. Wellesley Tudor Pole’s own works are called The Silent Road, Man Seen Afar and A Message for the Coming Time.

Wellesley Tudor Pole was the person who inspired the “Silent Minute” in 1940, when he was able to persuade Prime Minister Winston Churchill and King George VI (of the U.K.) to have a minute for silence on the radio every evening at nine p.m. Everyone stopped what they were doing, and during that minute, sent out thoughts of peace.

After the war a British army officer, while interrogating a member of the Gestapo about why he thought Germany lost the war, the German replied, “You had a weapon we could not beat. You called it the Silent Minute.”

The quotes below are from the booklet, Wellesley Tudor Pole – Appreciation & Valuation by Oliver G. Villiers.

“Today Man stands at the decisive crossroads of his fate, and this fact is also true for every kind and form of life upon this planet. Within the next half century and perhaps during the lives of some who are listening to me now, the die will be cast and the issue settled one way or the other between the alternative of progress forward and upward or a return to the dark ages of long ago.

I will try to put before you some of the reasons which have brought Humanity to its present pass, and certain ways in which we as individuals can co-operate with the Elder brothers of the Race in an endeavour to ensure a victory for the Light over the forces of darkness and negation.

To begin with, may I endeavour to explain the origin and working of what I have referred to as the Blended Ray in my book The Silent Road. Spiritual and metaphysical realities can only be interpreted symbolically, and sometimes allegorically. Do not try, therefore, to materialise in your minds these conceptions to the point where they lose all power to uplift or to enlighten. This Blended Ray has been brought into being by the joint efforts of Great Masters and Initiates gathered together as a Hierarchy, under Divine Guidance, for this very purpose.

This radiation is now approaching the fringes of human consciousness, and already many among us are beginning to feel its inspiring, revitalizing and cleansing influence.

Put in the simplest terms, this Ray of Spiritual outpouring represents the child of the union between cosmic and primeval Divine wisdom, and the equally potent power of eternal and all-embracing love.

It is now evident that in addition to the use of nuclear energy for vile and destructive purposes, Man intends to augment his supplies of material force by the erection of nuclear reactors everywhere and on a very big scale. The passage of time alone will reveal whether it will become possible for Man to reach a truce with Nature’s Guardians in this matter. Apart from all other dangers to life, Man has not yet succeeded in neutralising the poisonous radiations given out continuously by Nuclear effluents and their by-products. We can hardly hope to look to Nature for help in this respect.

If the necessary steps are not taken to reverse the direction in which Man’s so-called progress is taking place, the next step that will be taken by those who are endeavouring to prevent the coming of a New Age would be to bring about a break in the link, already weakened, which joins the human race with the so-called lower kingdoms of Nature. If this link were to be broken, then indeed there would be universal war on this planet, but in this case with the human race on one side, and all forms of life represented by the kingdoms and intelligences of the mineral, vegetable, animal and those of fire, air and water on the other side.

The next step that we, as human beings, would be obliged to face if this process were to be continued, which God forbid, would be the severance of man’s mind from his brain, and ultimately the divorce of the spirit from the mind, in which case all forms of evolution on this planet, as we know it, would cease.

There is no doubt that the situation we face at the present moment in this great Armageddon that is being fought out, not only here on earth, but in the spheres around this planet, is indeed of such a serious nature that, unless we can look for salvation and help from spiritual sources, man alone is unable to find a solution to the problem which he has created as a result of evil thinking and acting, and the misuse of freewill right down the centuries.

What can we do at the present time in view of the very critical and dangerous conditions of world affairs? In the first place give up once and for all the mistaken belief that it is necessary to kill in order to survive. This applies not only to the killing of our fellow beings, but to the breeding and slaughter of those who belong to the animal kingdom whom we destroy in order to satisfy our appetites. How can we begin to make our peace with the kingdoms of Nature whilst such a practice continues?

Wellesley Tudor Pole circa 1965

The importance of positive, constructive, optimistic thinking all day long cannot be over estimated. The fight upon which you and I are constantly engaged is against the so-called forces of fear, depression, self-centeredness and frustration. Bar your gates against these negative forces as the first step towards making yourself and your life of greater service to others. Remember well, true spiritual perception, a quality for which we should always strive with might and main, does not depend in any way upon psychic vision, or the phenomenal experiences associated with what we call clairvoyance, clairaudience, or the automatic reception of messages purporting to come from unseen sources.

Look and seek, therefore, within your own Universe for your own progress, your inspiration, and your salvation.

Revelation is God given to each of us and is an interior and intimate process. Truth in its myriad forms and degrees reaches us in its own time and way. The more we look to outsiders for solutions to our perplexities, the more we weaken the link that unites us with our own interior and higher selves from whom, by far, comes the most valuable enlightenment and guidance for us.

Light does not DO anything to darkness. It simply SHINES!”

Love Lives in All Creatures, Great and Small

Another special animal story came this week (in an email—no groaning—it’s a love story and you’re really going to like it.) Someone reported it came from a French newspaper, but gave no details. So, thank you to whoever captured these moving pictures, a testament to the power of love that lives in all creatures, great and small:

Here a female swallow is injured and the condition is soon fatal. She was hit by a car as she swooped low across the road.

Here a male swallow, her mate, brought her food and attended to her with love and compassion.

He brought her food again but was shocked to find her dead.

He tried to move her … a rarely-seen effort for swallows!

Aware that his sweetheart is dead and will never come back to him again, he cries with adoring love. He stood beside her, saddened of her death.

Millions of people cried after seeing these photos in Europe, America, Australia, and even India. The photographer sold these pictures for a nominal fee to the most famous newspaper in France. All copies of that edition were sold out on the day these pictures were published.

And people think animals don’t have feelings? You have just witnessed love and sorrow felt by one of God’s creatures. The Bible says God knows when a sparrow falls. How much more He cares for us!

An Inconvenient Truth, a Guest Post by Michael Brine

By Michael Brine, wild.brine621@gmail.com

The Mayans, through their Mayan Calendar, along with other Indigenous races such as the Hopi Indians, are indicating that now is the timeframe in which we are transitioning from the end of this past Patriarchal Age, towards the coming new age we are moving into. In the process, the old male-dominated rulers, religions, financial systems, etc., have outlived their time and are collapsing. To quote the Hopis, “We are the ones we have been waiting for.”It is my opinion that if the Mayan Calendar in its essence is correct — and I believe it is — then it is also no surprise that the population on the planet has maxed out concurrently with this “cleansing” period we are witnessing. There are too many people on this planet to feed and nourish everyone properly. Hence, with the added chaotic weather anomalies we are seeing, food is becoming scarcer as crops fail. In the U.S. prices are rising, as they certainly are here in Canada, and also in Europe. It is part of the upheavals triggered by the cyclic time period we are moving through. Once again as I’ve said so often, you cannot build a new building on a rotten foundation! The corrupt and decaying elements we have allowed ourselves to be controlled by will not be part of this ‘new world.’

The situation that existed in Atlantis as its demise neared was that those who were Aware were given the insight to leave before the ‘Storm’ hit. Some went to North Africa (or what we now know as North Africa) and some to South America. Hence the similarity to the Pyramids and the Mayan Temples. Atlantis had become corrupted in a similar way as our world has to-day. I am not certain if this coincided with a cyclic event (which is the case to-day) but if we are to believe Anastasia, there was certainly a major event relating to an Age change. All I can add is that for whatever reason my Buddhist monk knew something was coming as did Major Wellesley Tudor Pole, who I had met around 1961 in Glastonbury, England. The vision I have always had is that after this ‘Storm’ has passed those who are left will re-start civilisation with the awareness to not repeat the errors of the past, but to live and create a world of Communities working together. More than this I cannot say.

All life in our Universe is subject to cycles — the tides of the ocean — the seasons — life spans — the movement of the stars — night and day, and so on. The population maximising concurrently with this transition is part of our planet’s continuing cycle. I believe in this 2011 year, starting in mid-March and in the following months, we are going to witness major disruptions and upheavals right across the world beyond anything we have ever witnessed before. Sadly, I sense many will die, which is why I have advised people who ask me: Move away from large centres of population as there will be much turmoil. I believe that is why my visionary Buddhist Monk — Namjyal Rinpoche — inspired me to move up here to Canada’s north those many years ago–all part of this “cleansing” I refer to. Knowledge is empowering — what we do with that knowledge if it rings a bell within us, is to use our intuition as to how we should proceed — but NEVER out of fear! Continue reading

We Are the Answer, a Guest Post from Sharie, Spirit Teacher

Sending Joy

We are the awe we feel at a glorious sunset or a star filled night.  We are the beauty of a lovely garden, or a snow filled woods. Not the garden or the woods, but the beauty which is a feeling that lives inside us. We are the heart of a lovely song, the picture in the frame, the pinnacle of every fear-filled mountain we’ve ever had to climb. We are the joy in an unguarded moment when something passes over us that surpasses understanding.

We are the deep happiness we feel when we get it, even for an instant, that God is alive and well and no matter how it looks, all is right with the world. We are a holy instant when time stands still and space is limitless and we can see through the fear, the pain, the doubts, the darkness to a place of light and delight, and then, with great relief, feel all our burdens lifted from us. We are weightless.  We are ageless.  We are the kindness in a moment when we connect with someone unexpectedly and feel compassion and empathy. We are a gift to the world and the world is a gift to us. We are a blessing who can bless.  We are a savior who can save.  We are a healed healer. We are the answer to every question. The question to every answer. We are every lesson learned.
