Memory Matters- 29th March 2015

Right before, in that brief pause between, in that space just prior, in that last breath of peace.....

Preceding that which is to begin, that which will change everything, there is but one moment more quiet than silence, when the heavens, looking on, record all to a cosmic living memory to preserve what has come, and all that will go, with these moments.

The great Master was not without His friends. He was the most understood in the Cosmic-verse; for it was His Light that permeated the twelve constellations and beyond. It was His Light that bore the recipes and remedies, the form and the folly, the transcripts to history, the prizes and their mothering Saints; His Light unveiled Creations planes and contours; bright lit the swaggering, climbing, flying, crawling, gliding, walking parcels of consciousness; His Light that counseled the sages and inspired the pious, taught the fledgling spirits the mysteries of the cosmic world - that world within, that world without; and His Light that broadcast the futures so told bearing that divinest of predictions: the evolution of the soul - that Man might become all he is destined to be, in health, and with love, in reverential sanctity. To experience Life is to know Christ. 

From lifetime to lifetime the human spirit gathers the salt and savour of adventure and trial. It is to almost impossible lengths an individual will navigate, throughout histories of hardship, of naivety and mastery, of a constant need to learn and relearn - to adapt and change roles and scenes, to then migrate into races and times unknown.

And, all the while this same soul (which this is with all) retains an inner sense of remaining - a knowledge of self, of ego, of being - one of containment - yet with a voice - of individuality and the presumption of a moderate freedom.

The same human spirit identifies with that which is beautiful within Creations multi-toned spectrum, and to every other, and will embrace the loveable, rejoice in the good, and celebrate the great.

Same soul will many times die defeated, with complexities of unfinished plans - withered by age, disease or assault; vanquished by loss - of others or of self.

Same soul will suffer confusion - for this transient shift of script and scene is bewildering.

At present the world of Man affords the souls a weave of divine forgetfulness. The Heavens do not forget however - in point of fact their very substance is memory - every spiritual being is made up of that substance of memory. Every orb and particle of light is made with the memory of its own making. And, when the souls of Man frequent the spiritual worlds, they too walk in bodies of memory. Spirit-matter is refined memory - along with its divine infusion of hierarchical glamour, and godly core. Pure memory. And, if one has the eyes to see, you can read from any being or any thing its long, very long, history in its entirety.

It is a humorous thought that there are many who blush at the notion that God might be watching their acts and deeds, however their conduct and experience and all that is said and done, lives on - with its technicolor detail to be witnessed - forever. 

It is not as a matter of record, but of substance.

Every animate thing is propelled by the sequence of will from the very moments before, and that which takes us into one point of time, remains in that sequence ever after.

And yet, to look into any man or womans catalog of events would be more complex than the largest library in all the world, in the accumulation of lifes tales and moments for that one individual.

Remembering ones past always has been selective and not comprehensive - for the divine forgetfulness is a gift for the ability to change.

We have spoken of this before. To add to this is also to note: that the element of forgetfulness also enables the spirit to be able to experience outside of itself. Therefore, because of those periods of forgetfulness we can adopt new and different perspectives, and take into ourselves something other than what we have attracted previously through identification.

One would not want to literally live within their memories, and yet, so easily this could happen if the consciousness of the I am were not so developed.

So many beings exhibit repetitive and continual behaviors which are of a great service to their environment, yet they are also essentially living within their own memory realms and memory bodies, rather than by a present connection with self-consciousness operating anew. Within the Angelic realm and elemental realm this can be said - and it is to note here that the timelessnessof Faerie, is one such place because of the inhabitants re-living over and over again, in habitual play, in a memory world, with a spiritual dance of etheric sequence. It may not age, but it also may not progress this is the Peter Panaspect of a stable eco-fae-system with an almost static evolution.

There is a paradox to be found within the earthly sphere and the purposes of divine forgetfulness and memory consciousness.

If you take the ego awareness out from a mans conjecture he readily will slip into some form of memory-body consciousness - and his actions and activities will reflect this way of being.

Great suffering can dislocate a man from his self-consciousness - and regions of the world that have infants suckle from fearful and aggrieved mothers can become children and adults who are easily divorced from their self-hood and give over into a memory consciousness instead.

This by effect will go on to change their behaviors, counter in ways that the individual would have had, were he self-conscious.

It is often thought for example, that men who are mischievous or violent have corrupted their sons to become the same in the atmosphere of violence in the household. Sadly it is often the fear and subjugation from the mother astrally, that incurs the soul of the child to begin to separate out from itself and the world to then renounce their own consciousness. 

And so the babe in the arms of a mother who is suffering a war, or a hostile terror in her own person, is subject to become less than fully incarnated, and less than responsible for their actions in the years to follow.

The profile of the individual who has slipped into a memory-consciousness is one who doggedly (although not rationally) strives for repetition and dogma, finding comfort in practices and ideologies that are rigid, and usually unforgiving. The dominant principle is one of it is because it is rightor it is because it has always been. And the racial or religious characteristics become accentuated as old racial or old religion without any capacity to hold a living connection with the interactions about. There is no rational or empathetic or realistic consciousness that is operating from this person so affected. And, this handicap is largely formed in youth.

Of course such dislocation can happen within a grown individual as well - and very quickly. Soldiers who have desensitized, never to regain their wits or morals again; addicts who have departed their self-awareness leaving for the shores of an early retirement; prostitutes and other such laborers whose only way of endurance is to disincarnate out from their sense of self and realitys demands.

If you are a free thinker then you are truly blessed with this ability to experience anew.

Oft times it is simply this inner sense of being able to be a free and current thinker that is the most exciting and invigorating experience of all - moreso than the actual thought one is working towards grasping. It is that pause before the knowing, it is that space within the prospect; it is the chance and possibility - these light filled moments are born of true freedom and peace.

For some, in this one lifetime, the peace may not be known. For most, there will be spaces - enough, where the memory-self becomes remote and the man or woman is carried by something that they see or hear or taste or know - and this becomes a revelation - a new experience revealed. And this brings peace.

And for those who are fortunate enough to have philosophical minds that can wander as they please - you have now the responsibility to cultivate the new thought and work as you might to enrich the world with inspiration - in the hope that it will draw out the best from those around you, and awake a few besides.

Movement- 25th January 2015

HAVE you ever noticed that birds’ eggs are not round? The yolk inside is most beautifully spherical, and yet the outer shell of containment is elliptical.

It is not uncommon for the egg to be alluded to in spiritual context: in relation to one’s egoic body and auric halo, and in Brahmanda - [the great cosmic egg].

The shape of the birds egg is not determined by its delivery alone. Other species have round eggs - such as butterflies and fish. The formation of the outer encasement of the bird’s egg occurs inutero and before, by spiritual design, rather than it being moulded by the delivery itself.

The sphere within the egg (the yolk) will oscillate from side to side within its cradle. It may only be the slightest of movement, but nonetheless there is a freedom for this ability to deviate from its central place.

The yolk is both protected and confined within its shell, yet it may move from side to side, being neither fixed nor static, nor stationary. If you hold an egg and jiggle it lightly you can feel the yolk moving inside.

Now one consideration here to add further to this is that the yolk is only but a part of the embryonic stage of the life within - and is not the completed body by any means. This is the period before manifestation for which is described. And were the egg to become fertilized its yolk would very quickly lose its spherical form to become a tangle of head and limbs within, seeking eventual release into oxygen.

And so, to return to the yolk moving this way and that, we find that there is a positive energetic consequence from this very slight movement. Movement itself can stimulate the ethers and invoke an energetic life to help sustain and support that which is in motion.

Another perspective on this is a fundamental principle of universal solicitation and bounty - the original ‘asking and receiving’ in that life, all life, requires what it takes to sustain itself, else it die. Therefore all that is alive, on any plane, in any realm, has what it requires in order that it might and does exist. The proof of this is in its own being-ness - it is evident by that which it is.

And pertaining to this principle, all entities can attract replenishment according to their needs, and this is done primarily through their movement. “I move therefore I am”.

The more a plant moves (i.e. with the pulse of the wind and light) and its ability to move, the more prolifically it grows.

Children are active, and without such activity will become sickly. When the elderly cease to move, their energetic supplements wane concordantly. We pretty much measure life and death in terms of movement. And although these are very loose analogies to the principle and an oversimplification of the processes, one can also point to the higher principle which holds a very potent and significant meaning.

In relation to thought, for example, and activity within the being who is thinking - and within the will, and for the man or woman who is exercising their determining - the consequences are remarkably effectual as to who brings more vitality into these fields and therefore shapes their future to come thereby.

Sometimes it is not what we do, but the very fact that we are doing at all, that gives us a license at the very least for continuum. 

 Some decisions will never have a good or great outcome because they are limited to that which is real or possible. But the goodness gleaned from the forging of any decision is guaranteed in the possibilities then made available - if not now, then in the future, by these beginnings. This is a very important spiritual law in relation to every practical phase of existence, both here and within the heavens.

Right before any decision is formally made there is the decision to make the decision that precedes it. The will is exercised - often coaxed or motivated by circumstance, and rises up within the individual with a very clear signal to the ethers, resounding out about that life that is being expended on a task - i.e in the willing. And life is returned, it is replenished with a remedial enterprise.

A man who has been paralyzed has the possibility of life returning and renewing to that affected part, by the mental exercises of imagining the movements so desired. For it is that the very willing and thinking will invoke the energetic forces into those lifeless areas. You may not be able to regrow a leg at this particular time, but in the past and in the future this did/will happen within the physical world via the imagination and with the exercise of the energetic will.

Similarly, there needs must be ‘movement’ within our fields of virtue. One is not really to be considered virtuous simply by abnegation or inactivity, but moreover by what is done actively.

For example, a man might consider himself as being charitable because his inclinations lean that way; however the gifts to others from himself, in thought, deed or word, need to be delivered actively on a constant basis for this virtue to be kept lively within his own being in the present. Were he charitable but a month ago and not since then, the activity has gone very quiet - and what is attracted back to that soul will be very little also.

Prayers need constancy and regularity … and interestingly the energetic response to a prayer not only reactivates the ability of faith within the petitioner but also revivifies that person or collective to whom the prayer is addressed.

For the heart and mind actively designate where the incoming energetic activity should go to and it is by this feature that through prayer an almost lifeless circumstance can turn around and be renewed.

How very valuable to know that the stimulus does not have to come directly from the life itself - because, not one thing is separate unto itself and motivated solely by its own inclinations - and were it to be so very self-interred would surely be lost to desolation and decrepitude having been left to such a singular motivation.

In pregnancy the woman moves the baby - even with the breathing and the pulse and this in turn inspires the lively forces to enter into the growing child.

Similarly we can all be mothers to who we care for in prayer, attracting to those individuals the very vitality they might need to remedy, or grow, to live, to think, to find peace, and for all of those who that has lost their own momentum.

From waving cats to wind chimes on the breeze, flags and banners and waterfalls … even the movements of a grandfather clock would stimulate the ethers perpetuating the lively forces.

For the artist or the writer: pick up your pen or your brush and move it - and after time something will come! And, if it be only scribble, be content and persist.

Warmth brings warmth, light attracts light. Every parent substance feeds its infant when they awake.

The beginnings may seem very distant from the end, but are always, always, the starting points of divine referral.

Affiliated Thinking- 26th December 2014

And so it begins -

Death is a dance - it holds its own cosmological syntax and cannot be truncated or obfuscated.

With the exception of murderous circumstances, the timing of any individuals death is to the very second suitable and although it may appear that there is a decision of sorts with this timing - i.e. a hesitation, a farewell, a timely moment that belongs within the earthly realm - the process is preordained, and for this reason: that death in consequence occurs within the spiritual spheres before the physical body deceases. The one does not follow the other as is often pondered.

For the physical body does not ever dictate to the spirit anything of any matter. It can and does inform, convey, communicate and sometimes inhibit but it is always the conformist, the silent partner to incarnation and its processes.

The incarnating ego of an individual knows, senses and decides all matters from the soul firstly.

Of course by appearance it is very easy to be misled into thinking that we are solely motivated by physical needs and material thoughts. 

 However the basest of men and the slowest of the elderly are finely attuned to the rhythms of the unseen currents, and the wisdoms working within and without.

In point of fact the experiences we have during a lifetime are so much more significant when viewed from the aspect of the soul.

It is very much alike to that part of the birdsong our ears cannot hear, or the colors as yet not seen - we do not necessarily perceive the impressions and interactions of our souls life at present - but the richness of this experience remains, and when conscious recollections are so visited, the many reasons and natures are appreciated and further understood.

Life could be seen to be a barren enterprise if much of the day was simply as it seemed. In truth, one could wonder at a Creation that sought the noblest of beings to enact but the mundane, and that being the one and only purpose. But this is not the case. Every footfall is part of the cosmic dance that is explicit with deep meaning.

Just as the planets hold their relations within the boundaries of movements and magnetism, the incarnating ego is aware on its commensurate planes of existence just as to that exact position it holds. 

It feels the sun from the direction in which the rays are broadcast - it senses the proximity of others and their natures toward themselves and their influences great and small. These aspects of the soul are sensitive to all of life - all of the complexities - and over time (a cosmic time) can go back and see and feel with full knowledge of the life they have lived.

And so one can begin to understand that it is not just a review of places and times and humdrum or drama that is re-seen, given witness to.

It is not but a dream in the retelling - but much more with a cascading complexity that will infill the mind with ideas and inspiration for eons to come.

The pictorial aspect of the soul and the emphatic impressions it receives are first and foremostly strikingly beautiful. The very first intake of any knowledge has this effect within ones being. The soul would not choose to see something - and in most cases could not see – that which was darkly, horribly constructed. 

The first impressions are always those which take in the beauteous aspect of an event, a nature, of a time or another being. This is the greeting from one to another - the image of a place - the representation of a reality. The first senseimpression of the soul is in that receiving of that beauteous impression and the understanding of that cosmic reality by the tones of its beauty so given and received.

These ideas are not romantic or poetic or abstract - they are of the science of the soul itself. This is why at the beginning of this paper it was said that the process of death could not begin to be understood by material reasonings or perceptions - that the cognitive perceptions and reasonings do not and could not relate to the processes that give up and unto death; that the passage of the soul that passes out from the earthly realm and back into its ordinary habitat, are given to reasons and impressions that are from a vastly different perspective and motivation.

Also, to add to this is the comment that the operating consciousness of an individual is at the one place at the one time; yet having said that, the individual is consciously interpreting life in all of its aspects concurrently - it is just focused on the one significantly.

Added to this consciousness, self-consciousness and the expression of such are all very different modes of being. One can reverse their thought on dreams to obtain a clearer view on the physical expression of life as we know it. For example: it is commonly thought that our day-to-day conscious awareness of self and surroundings is the prime predictor of reality and has the clearest vantage to life and its meanings. In other words, it is the thought-world that is entertained by our active brains that determines our best judgment and expression of the world and ourselves.

Already one can see within the sentence a flaw in that prescription - given that the mind is limited to the selection of worldly thought utilized within its reasoning.

Some individuals who are given to esoteric thinking can utilize higheror more subtle thoughts - they can actually think with a modernized mind that is more predictive of future man than the ordinary man today.

The filters and differentiation employed within this thinking actually precludes an array of paradigmatic clusters - and so not only does it have the ability to draw from an advanced selection, it also precludes a great many groups of thoughts that are as the dead woodof the tree of knowledge.

This aspect of preclusion is no handicap - but a service to the thinker. Most commonplace thinkers are imbibed with the older aggregates of thought, and like barnacles upon a rock, find them hard to identify and pluck off - even if they had the know-how to want to - calcified thought bodies that are residual to the age, yet also very primal in their beginnings.

Thought does not break down, it does not leave the earthly realm and is taken up by the incarnating souls, who largely by proximity are most influenced. It shapes form as well as conscious thinking - it really is the stuff from which the physical world constantly recreates itself daily. For this reason alone it does need to be indestructible. Imagine for one moment what would be the implications if such pre-matter matter was, if it were transient, less permanent and dissolvable?

And so we have these bodies of thought-matter that have pre-existed manifestation and continue to remain.

Therefore, when contemplating the forms of thought that bring future learning and ideas into this world there are two things required: namely the ability to perceive the more subtle thought that is yet to become substantially received within the world, and also the ability to preclude that former body of thought that would in itself literally battle in contrast the wisdom to come.

And yes! it is not only people that go to war over ideas and ideologies! It is the very beings of thought that do this as well.

And this battling itself is where the men of old first picked this up from.

There are races of men who do not battle thought and are perfectly capable of scholastic enquiry without subjective interference - but then there are others who are so strongly imbibed with the living concepts of contesting ideas that they bring this aggression into their behaviors and future learnings.

Individuals carry their predispositions with them over lifetimes, and although they are subjected to the given thoughts of region and time, they are given to limitations and inclinations that have formed consistently within their conscious world thinking.

So said, the most limited of individuals can progress if the local bodies of materialistic thought begin to give over to the new thought brought in.

Old thought is combative, new thought is scholastic.

Old thought defends itself and would aggressively contest new thought coming in.

Receivers of old thought aggregates particularly enjoy watching or taking part in sports that are aggressively combative. Typically narrow minded materialistic thinkers are physically remonstrating the spiritual worlds contest of paradigms and thought-bodies throughout. 

Esoteric thinkers of the newthought are not afraid of confrontations or oblivious of their contests, but they do not aggressively seek them out, initiate battle with them, or enjoy such interactions - largely because they are sensitive to the stubborn thought they have selectively dismissed throughout their lives that is knocking at the doors of their minds and their beings persistently. One may be able to preclude the thoughts, yet still hear them rapping on the door!

When the process of death has begun within the spiritual worlds, the consciousness is immediately loosened from its affiliated thinking.

The term affiliated thinkingrelates to the whole conceptual status of the individual - whether synthesized through new or older configurations and recollections. This affiliative thought body is dismissed by the soul who is now operating a consciousness outside of their physical body in every respect.

This can take place years before the actual death occurs - as in dementia - or in the days, hours or minutes just prior to the last breath.
