Out from the Struggling Chaos …23rd April 2000 Easter

THE only true illusion there is, is that of chaos. Chaos in its first interpretive sense, implied that condition which was of the earliest of beginnings. It did not denote disorder, but rather the preliminary positioning of the dancers before the dance, of that preorganized state in which all of the ingredients are gathering up their movements in preparation of yet further Creation in the combining. This is Chaos.

Amongst this hoary preamble there needs be spirit - most divine and Holy Spirit - required as chief motivating life. Hustling formation out of an otherwise stagnant inanimate pool, there is Holy Spirit. Calling the Holy Spirit forth with purpose as shown through the divine imaginations, there was the Creative God whose muse was that ancient of cartwrights who carried the eternal Phoebe out from and into her land of longings … there was and is our Christ.

Then there came two evils: Young Evil and Old Father Evil. Young Evil had ridden alongside Christ, whereas Old Father Evil lived outside of time. Young Evil's nature bore conceit. He was life interrupted before becoming yet fulfilled into its true promise. His nature was of being unripe. Old Evil always stayed far too long, protesting the new ways and he could not forgive Christ with all of His beginnings and renewals, and futures thus conspired. Old Evil honored self-perpetuation and was thus equally self-conceited, though his nature was that of the rotten.

Unripe and Rotten pitched tent within Christ's brand new world. If there had of been flags to claim the land as their own, they both would have staked each and every continent, for fast spread their dire influence most anyhow, bringing premature death to some, and a living death to those who remained. 

The World, in its wisdom, was revolted. Thrice over it made a change of its spinning, freezing tropics and fevering the angel-clad snows … but could not, for all of the calamity it caused, throw off these treacherous two.

The waters began to depart from the world, the heavenly forces becoming compelled to retire. Too many beings were disabled by the now vast corruptions, as Rotten had imported his armies and Unripe put on display his ambidextrous sirens. Half of the world cowered in frightened servitude, whilst the other gave over to an obnoxious frivolity. Either way men committed that which was not theirs to give - their hearts and their deciding being formed and shaped by an invalid's experience or naïveté's knowing. 

And yes, in argument for the gifts of these two - there was something to be said for the talents each one bore. However, the intelligence of Rotten was lifeless and unconnecting to its truth; whilst the merriment and beauty of Unripe lacked substance when compared to the real world of Christ.

Further to this men now entertained yet one more being who became increasingly more persuasive within our brand new World: enter Sin. Sin is N.I.S. backwards: "Not in service".

You can picture this, I am sure. Amongst the common orderliness which had reigned within the paradisaical World, all beings had been working in service most naturally amongst one another for Him. There had been no question of this occurring.

The manner in which one did serve another, and serve the World and the Heavens as well, was with an intelligent and loving understanding of their important position in the Cosmos. Joy became of serving because it was that through the action of this giving one could reflect and sense the greater Divine Mind. That by being intrinsic to the working whole, one knew the very operating wisdom of that one being so incorporated. Therefore it was not from compliance but rather the thrill to participate in which men and women served the whole in the tradition of many good beings besides them.

However, through one sin the whole deck must reshuffle … when the ecology is interrupted every cell must make its adjustment, and in this way are we given to incessant reaction in the stead of a proper design.

Do you recall a thought that if someone were to correct a problem, they should go to the source of its beginnings and set it aright back there? It is as this (spiritually speaking):

A beggar has come to my door (Old Moon),
And asks that I give him the time (New Life),
And I offer him bread from the scrape of my shoe (no consideration),
He partakes of my pantry, then runs off with my wife (Mother Earth).

Beggar, oh Beggar, oh beggar you be,
The past that I serve, when it shall not serve me …

The three scavengers, Unripe, Rotten and Sin have followed us over from a past existence which was prior to this World's condition. The patterns of contamination may be the same, but the origins come of a differing nature yet again.

In all things there is a palpable history succinct. Not the least does our World carry within it also the history of former conditions as well, layered like the rings of a tree, encircling the aureole of an innermost central Sun.

Christ resides within this central Sun and His Mind extends out through the many inhabiting realms besides. His passage into Life here within this time, in this World, redressed not only this epoch - or the one before or the one to come - but it also made discovery of the initial trials we have borne.

You see He changed something dearly with His Life and His Death. He brought into this World INDEPENDENCE. He gave this to Man. He changed the entire regime. He let loose the individual, into a freedom never before so realized. 

We are free now of the past and its presumptions over us. We are free now of the one card shuffle. No longer are we to be affected by one cell's choosing. If ninety-nine men were to refuse Heaven and Him too, then it is now that the one remaining can still decide in liberty away from his brothers, without the persuasion of the whole, without the consignment to his kind.

We are free of the willing and choosing of other gods. Temples used to pledge their obeisance to parliaments of persuading deity, transacting deals and compromising their brethren. No longer are these relationships so imposing that they are imposing on us.

For those who find Christ, they find also such an independence. For those who are yet to acknowledge Him they may be subject to old ways which still protest His currency. In truth, not one man or one demon, one god or one Heaven rules your deciding. For Christ gave us back to our Father for this keeping. Although we may go through Him for this to be effected, we do not even oblige Him in recognition to be one with the Father as is.

This was His great sacrifice. Though it has provided for the great separation of Mankind, it shall also prove the greatest of unity.

We now may know that flash of illumined mind that perceives the higher reasons for the good things which are of this world. We are not compelled or complied into servitude, we are not even coaxed through the overwhelming joys … but we are capable of seeing Him in His glory for that vision of Love which has kept the Truth remaining.

We can climb skies, float oceans, sway with the currents or fly above. We can polish the face of a mountain or sing with the angels of being. We can lavish the graces in veritable deserts of dismay, we can be patient to wait, obstinate with the truth, yet gracious to learn and quick to share …

"But now I go away to Him who sent Me, and none of you asks Me, 'Where are You going?' But because I have said these things to you, sorrow has filled your heart. Nevertheless I tell you the truth. It is to your advantage that I go away; for if I do not go away, the Comforter will not come to you; but if I depart, I will send Him to you. And when He has come, He will convict the world of sin, and of righteousness, and of judgment: of sin, because they do not believe in Me; of righteousness, because I go to My Father and you see Me no more; of judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged.

"I still have many things to say to you, but you cannot bear them now. However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come. He will glorify Me, for He will take of what is Mine and declare it to you. All things that the Father has are Mine. Therefore I said that He will take of Mine and declare it to you.

"A little while, and you will not see Me; and again a little while, and you will see Me, because I go to the Father."

Then some of His disciples said among themselves, "What is this that He says to us, 'A little while, and you will not see Me; and again a little while, and you will see Me'; and, 'because I go to the Father '?" They said therefore, "What is this that He says, 'A little while '? We do not know what He is saying."

Now Jesus knew that they desired to ask Him, and He said to them, "Are you inquiring among yourselves about what I said, 'A little while, and you will not see Me; and again a little while, and you will see Me'? Most assuredly, I say to you that you will weep and lament, but the world will rejoice; and you will be sorrowful, but your sorrow will be turned into joy. A woman, when she is in labor, has sorrow because her hour has come; but as soon as she has given birth to the child, she no longer remembers the anguish, for joy that a human being has been born into the world. Therefore you now have sorrow; but I will see you again and your heart will rejoice, and your joy no one will take from you.

"And in that day you will ask Me nothing. Most assuredly, I say to you, whatever you ask the Father in My name He will give you. Until now you have asked nothing in My name. Ask, and you will receive, that your joy may be full.

"These things I have spoken to you in figurative language; but the time is coming when I will no longer speak to you in figurative language, but I will tell you plainly about the Father. In that day you will ask in My name, and I do not say to you that I shall pray the Father for you; for the Father Himself loves you, because you have loved Me, and have believed that I came forth from God. I came forth from the Father and have come into the world. Again, I leave the world and go to the Father."

His disciples said to Him, "See, now You are speaking plainly, and using no figure of speech! Now we are sure that You know all things, and have no need that anyone should question You. By this we believe that You came forth from God."

Jesus answered them, "Do you now believe? Indeed the hour is coming, yes, has now come, that you will be scattered, each to his own, and will leave Me alone. And yet I am not alone, because the Father is with Me. These things I have spoken to you, that in Me you may have peace. In the world you will have tribulation; but be of good cheer, I have overcome the world."
-John 16:5-33
Christ withdrew Himself and His binding nature that we may be made individual - each one. Salvation now is individually obtained, and every man or woman, boy or girl, a Christ, a Son or Daughter to the Father. Scattered, every man to his own, but also free of the Sin, free from the Past which inflicts itself to the detriment of the futures, and free from the premature haste which assumes maturity before proper time.

Christ’s return comes individually, and He is here for the time of our choosing. He is here!
