This is My Body which is given to you - Easter, Good Friday 3rd April 2015 ©

The soul of man is not the body it ensouls... it never is and never was, and will not be. The horse is not the rider and the ash is not the fire; our spirits are free and strong, unmeshed from the physical world - unembalmed from the whole.

In one almighty collaboration, this world of deterioration, gracefully and ephemerally coordinates layers of beings through integration and generation; in multifarious form, with will and want, and life's experience - each in contrast to one another - in a play of semi-permanency throughout the shift of time.

Think now of the plethora of entities, lying in the dust of the cosmic amphora; skimming the pools of a leaf's dewy cup; aggregating within and about the body and mind of a man.

Yet, this world is not the god that does drive it.

It is good for a man to behave like a god - if he truly behaves in that way - that is godly. But if he bethinks himself a god, or a representation of god, or commissioned by god, yet does not behave as a god, he is mistaken.

Christ was never his body: same body that was deified - same body that was crucified - same body that was revivified. 

His body and He were not one and the same.

This point is made quite a few times, over and over, in the story that is His.

And, it is this truth that gives hope to us all - otherwise, the eventual end on Earth would be inconsolable.

Death is not death, it is but a shift from one realm to another, a transcendency out and away from dependencies and constraints - into a life more natural than the world itself can offer.

Before the resurrection, The Resurrection, there was a push within the earthly realm to immortalize men by holding captive their soul, in the confines of an ever perpetuated earthy tenement. And all the while the spirits of men had their god-given immortality that pre-existed their earthly periods, yet their bodies held this truth from them.

If the body believes itself to be a man, then this is good, if it acts like a man - but if the body believes it is the man, yet follows the wills and want of just body, then this is not good for the man - or the world.

The body loves living. It enjoys life and most of the pleasurable experiences. It is happiest and most conscious when it can see through the eyes of the spirit indwelling and experience both the sensation and the excitement of incarnation.

Entire cultures have been driven by the body not wishing to depart or die. It would not be impossible for the consciousness of the body to incarnate into that of an electrical robotic being if it promised an immortality.

The spirit of man is persuaded, but not so easily pleased as it knows the better existence - and no matter how far removed from the heavenly worlds, the soul gains its freedom, out and beyond the gates of this world, nightly in dreams, visiting realms, in which it enjoys the robust, energetic vitalities.

The body also sleeps and dreams, but its consciousness cannot penetrate past that first astral gate - and its recollections, if any, will be in accordance with its nature and understanding - limited by desires and capability.

The sagely kings brought the impulses from higher planetary spheres - such influences as did infill the spirit of the vessel thereby. Whereas the shepherds and the comely stable was of the body and its overall Animalia.

Of course this is not the whole story or distinction - but an aspect, in part.

At the time of the Christ child's birth the world had been saturated in a materialistic ectoplasm - a veritable slag of astral refuse - a material so dense that it dirtied the Heaven's view, and men all the while grew shortsighted peering through it.

Virtue and family became second placed to commerce and luxury, to power, and above all, infantilism - for what is the desire of the rich, but to set aside honest occupation and have everything done for them without effort or self worth?

This is a dangerous path - and societies one way or another encourage such infantile pursuits and behaviors, identifying in ways that a mature soul does not, and cannot find attractive, becoming repulsed from such most naturally.

A society that endorses slavery of any kind is infantile. 


In the Sermon on the Mount Christ urges the collective to acquire reflection and responsibility. He speaks of social and moral maturity; that they may see with the eyes to God once more. His words and their message immediately elevate the spirit from its sodden lot. He expects and predicts a community of reasonable and caring men whose lives are not dedicated to the transitory materials and are not made anxious by their sways and their calls.

The body worships the infant state - it is as the golden era, and of course, that time most loved by others, of all. The rays from the human spirit within are so strong, whilst the caring without is usually the greatest also during this time. It is that period when self-awareness and self-consciousness, and an all-determining ego have not yet entered in - and for this then the body feels supreme - (although not) - it most certainly bathes in the sunrise of each life with added glory.

By Christ we were given an entrance into the physical World and by Christ we were given the proper passage back out again.

Our bodies are not hateful to us, or at war with us, but nor are they sovereign to our evolution or deciding. The relationship is a complex one and mostly it comes with the greatest of love. Neither body or spirit would harm one another. But just as we cannot dictate to the gods, nor can our beloved limbs dictate the realms we bide our time in. In this there is a true 'war of the flesh' to be understood - for desire comes in many forms.

Now there are a great number of reasons as to the mystery of this double-bind not being talked of or openly studied. Historically there has always been a perversion of extremes - of flagellation and condemnation - of resentment and denial of and with the body. This is the danger of taking the discussion into these aspects, and so it is prudent to caution the reader of these studies. The physical world, and the physical body is not evil. It is not inherently sinful - and is not at war with the spirit or its parent realms.

Having said that, the fleshly body takes instruction from its driver - and if the soul within cannot, or will not keep rein on its ride, then it will go as it will - and the pathways are many.

Overall this is what has happened, with a heightened evolution and awareness of its own throughout. 

"This is My Body which is given to you" -

Here is the divine offer for the exchange into that One body which has been accorded to Christ.

One of the greatest gifts to both the body and soul of Man was that Christ re-affect the cooperation between the two. It was by His synthesis to ours that this should be.

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.
