The Dark Side of the Light

canstockphoto2032670Do you walk on the dark side of the light? You were not created to become an automaton. You were created to reflect the inherent qualities of your Creator through self-expression and your ability to choose between good and evil. You have been given everything you need and more to be able to enjoy your sojourn through the earth plane. The “more” means all those aspects of yourself and your abilities that you have, as yet, not discovered.

We could say that the creative energy of the universe or the Source, as it projected out of itself, gave its creations a tiny bit of its own power. We know this power source in us as the “spark;” our own tiny connection to the creative energies of the Logos. The Logos projected forth a soul; the soul puts down a spark of itself, but remains in its own realm. This spark resides physically between our shoulder blades. This is why you will feel pain in this area at times of stress.

The stress contracts the subtle channels in the body and these channels are unable to accept the higher frequency flow through of the creative energies. So instead of channelling up to the brain to be diversified through the brain centres and then through the glandular system and physical body, as they should be, sometimes they don’t channel through correctly and leach out into the muscles on either side of the spine. This can also result in spinal sublaxation or headaches until the stress is addressed.

The constructive positive and productive pole of the energies hastens man’s progress on his evolutionary path. Is it not desirable, then, even imperative, to develop along the lines of constructive power?

We have come into incarnation with certain facets to help us achieve certain plans, often called our purpose or our function. We arrange this long before we take on physical form. Everything is not black and white though; we do give ourselves certain choices and each choice has its own consequences, even illness and disease. These are also tools of information and are used as part of the human learning experience.

In a way, we are the architect and creator of our own plans, so it is up to each one of us to tap into our own potential through the art of meditation. We also have our conscience to guide us through the earth plane. We know when we are doing something that is not right for us. It might be right for someone else, but not right for us. So if we take heed of this warning signal built into us, we find that we do have infallible guidance available to us. Those who can make the connection to their Higher Self also find much assistance from this level of being. The art of channelling is also enlightening and can assist.

There are also many other beings who are available to assist us if the need arises. Initially there are our guardian angels and our guides. Archangels are also often of assistance, so are the ascended masters if we are at that level of development.

Because we are dual beings, there is also the negative, destructive side of our nature to contend with. Certain negative traits can be brought to the surface by our interaction with other people. This often happens because we need to evaluate and eliminate destructive habit patterns. It is wise to remember the undisciplined will that seeks to subjugate and trammel all that opposes it. When this happens, remember you are in the negative, destructive phase.

The way to get out of it is to nip it in the bid as soon as you realize it is happening, or use affirmations that are the opposite to the negative trait or habit pattern.

There is so much more goodness inside everyone than people are given credit for. This should give you a strong sense of purpose to “get about the Master’s business” and fulfil your own function whilst here on the earth plane without walking too far into the dark side of the light.

Sirian Mystery School

Screen Shot 2015-01-30 at 10.38.00 amJust a quick update we have added a new page, Sirian Mystery School to our website and we are publishing our Book of Wisdom Series as a range of ibooks. The first three books are on the App Store now. The book of Wisdom series is a reprint of a series of transcripts that were channelled through to meditators as the beginnings of the teachings that accompany the Sirian Path of Return to the Source, “Pathways to Self Mastery”, and these lectures are the main platform of the Command. The Sirian Mystery School teachings have been channelled through to assist humanity in understanding Universal Law and the Creative Healing Law. They are presented in this form for students of the Path, who feel a need to learn something of these essential concepts. Analogy is used to explain how the energy steps down from a higher frequency to a lower one in the form of a parent giving birth to, or projecting or spawning a child or many children. If the reader bears this in mind, the concept of how energy is able to become a physical manifestation, regardless of whether the manifestation is human, animal, vegetable or mineral, will be more easily understood.

Readers are not expected to give immediate acceptance or acknowledgement to the following ideas. Rather, it is better to read and reread the transcripts often to allow the concepts to be accommodated and assimilated. Understanding will gradually filter through from the deeper levels of your being, and each one in their own time, and according to their application will come to recognize that which they are, and that which is. Book of Wisdom SeriesTo gain the most from the information given here, it is suggested that the whole transcript be read right through to gain an overall understanding of the concepts, then go back and reread a few paragraphs at a time, resting back in the energies to allow the understanding of the concepts to filter through. Many changes and insights can occur as readers rest into an altered state of consciousness. These changes may include an acceleration of spiritual growth and changes in connection with the four-fold system of the entity. Sometimes enormous spiritual and personal growth can occur merely by resting in the energies. As readers open to the marvelous concepts contained herein, they open a doorway to make the way easier for others who follow to understand the higher wisdom.

We are very excited to be sharing this wisdom on the App Store platform and hope you enjoy and share this opportunity to explore some fascinating metaphysical concepts and transformational energies.

Sirian Mystery School 1

What is the Sirian Command?—Part One

Many of you have been wondering, “What exactly is the Sirian Command?” The following is part one of an inspired explanation. The second part of the explanation will reveal more. Please leave a comment if you have any further questions; I’m happy to answer any and all of them for you.

TEACHINGS FROM THE STAR SYSTEM OF SIRIUS

Screen-Shot-2014-01-14-at-10.29.01-pmThe teaching through the Sirian Mystery School as part of the College of Esoteric Education deals with the profound spiritual constitution of man, but it does so from an energy viewpoint, although other terminology may occasionally be used to enhance understanding. It must be understood that a stellar body deals strictly in energy so this teaching offers an understanding of the universe in terms of energy and frequency, and this is the basis of the comprehensive program that the College offers. It is not derived from traditional teachings, although it does assist with a deeper and more comprehensive understanding of them all.

The teachings of the College are involved with the structure and function of this universe in both its known and unknown operation.  The concepts that are taught through the Mysytery School involve an understanding of the energy structure of the many forms of existence, both observable and non-observable to the conscious mind. The main point to consider is that everything is energy, but energy operating in varying degrees of frequency difference.

These teachings depict the universe as a boundless range of energy environments of varying energy spectra, and of widely differing functions.  These environments or realms are all inhabited by species peculiar to their own environs, and as such are unable to be observed by the human eye, but distinctly observable to the etheric eye.  They are the result of energy nucleified in the form of intelligences and genii, many of which far surpass any human understanding.

We now enter the concept that all existence is energy, and we state again that there are many realms of existence comprising energy spectra non-observable to humankind.  These are the realms of the invisible and mostly unknowable, and it is safe to say that the conscious mind of a human being, under ordinary circumstances, is totally unaware of what is happening in their own energetic planetary field.  However, that conscious mind is attended by, and is itself, a product of certain intelligences that reside in those deeper realms, and by virtue of its resonance, communication or communion, and being in tune with them, may be made aware of their requirements.

This brings us to a concept of that which is called in modern terms, a channel or in older terms, a medium. This means an exchange of knowledge from deeper intelligences through people who are resonant with that particular requirement, so that that knowledge can be disseminated throughout humanity, and so guide it in its ongoing journey back to the Source or the Logos.  Humanity is becoming more and more aware of these intelligences, and we now find a growing number of highly intelligent and well educated people being able to access the deeper levels wherein these intelligences lie, and channel through information in a more pure form because the information needs to be known on a wider scale.

Sirius teaches of the universal Path of Return to the Source, and being a source of stellar magnitude itself, and advanced in its own withdrawal, it has the ability to oversee the smaller path that is a planet’s. So we see the supervision of a young planet by a star of ancient age, and it is not a subversion of the authority of this Logos but an agency for its advancement.  The effect of Sirian energies is to trigger the planetary ascension.

This Logos in its cycling must integrate with the cycling of the larger solar body, which in turn, must integrate with the cycling of the Sirian System. If you consider a giant universal clock, similar to the inner workings of an old fashioned wrist watch with all its wheels in mesh and inter-dependent upon each other, the picture becomes easier to understand.

Sirius projects energy foci whose function involves the integration of all these cyclic patterns.  But it is only from Sirius B that the ultimate authority for overseeing this integrated cycling occurs.  Each of the solar systems connected with the Sirian System permits the force of projection carrying the Sirian authority to channel through and some of these projected functions carry the predominant withdrawal imprint of Sirius B.  Let us trace one of these functions in its application to planet Earth.

When the Logos projected mankind, knowledge of the Ancient Wisdom was written in energy so that as mankind developed and searched for answers. It was available to those advanced ones who could then in turn teach it to others. Humanity was never left alone and bereft, and certain laws were given to assist and to draw mankind closer to its Source.

These great laws have become corrupted over time, and their meaning lost, but these laws are contained in the myths and legends of humanity. One only has to read the myths brought down to the present age about the many so-called quests from times of yore, such as the Grail Quest, or some of the famous fairy tales to understand that the meaning is there couched in allegory.

Periodically, in accord with cycling requirements, this wisdom is channelled in the way of a comprehensive teaching.  Such teachings are featured for their universality.  They are not restricted to race, culture or creed.  The principles they announce are applicable from one period to another and to all people.  Wisdom, in this sense, is not something associated with any particular faction or dogma, but the fact that these occur, for purposes that are born through them, is still contained within that overseeing wisdom.

Evidence of this fact has been found throughout all cultures; from the earliest cave drawings to the Egyptian and Tibetan Books of the Dead, and to our own more modern times of past life regressions and future life progressions. All give evidence of the belief in the continuity of a life far greater than that encapsulated in the tiny mortal cycle of a human being. 

So, we look at the great age of the white dwarf, Sirius B. As an ancient star much knowledge would have been gathered throughout its long existence, and then transmuted into that which we call wisdom. This wisdom via streams of solar energy is then channelled to our Sun and the planets. Our Logos of Earth, is awakening and releasing this ancient knowledge also to those who have ears to hear.

The Law of Polarity

mysticism 101The law of polarity is too well understood in scientific circles to justify much analysis, except to say that as the law of attraction and repulsion it was understood by the ancients when they devised the Greek cross as a symbol of this law. This cross consists of one horizontal line symbolizing the negative, magnetic force (feminine), bisected by the vertical, positive, electronic (masculine) line.

These two elements in motion were depicted by the swastika, or Greek cross, with short lines at right angles to the arms. If these short lines or extensions were toward the right of the arm, it symbolized centrifugal force; if toward the left, the force indicated was centripetal. These two forces, rotating in opposite directions, could work together in harmony like the gears in a mechanical contrivance. This illustrates the statement that unlikes attract each other, while likes repel each other. The ancients observed that these two forces in exact balance kept the moon from flying off into outer space because of the earth’s centrifugal force caused by spinning on its axis or from plunging downward to earth because of her gravity or centripetal force.

On the surface of the earth, the rays of the sun are positive, while the magnetic currents of the earth are negative. The result is life in all its myriad aspects. The law of polarity is probably one of the least understood laws of the universe.

Symbols and Allegories

dreamstime_2952980The more we search the remains of lost civilizations, the more we are tempted to believe that the people of the past were fully aware of their relationship to the Master Architect of the universe via the avenue of symbols and allegories. Then, after eons of time and after becoming engulfed in the lower octaves of corporeal existence, they had gradually forgotten their former estate and the universal principles which had been common knowledge to them.

This forgetting, this downward path of devolution, is told in the Christian Bible in the symbolic story of the downfall of mankind through their symbolic parents, Adam and Eve. The same symbolic forgetting or leaving the Father’s house is related in another allegory, the story of the Prodigal Son. At the present stage in world progress or evolution, mankind has reached the point just about where the wayward boy took stock of his degraded status and decided to retrace his steps to the home of his father. And because mankind has decided to reach up, there is a whole hierarchy of cosmic principles or entities ready and waiting to reach down to assist the Prodigal in his endeavors.

In all ages there have been a few who remembered their rightful status, their divine origin, and who attempted to keep this memory alive and to help their fellowmen in their return to the Father’s house. Among the most outstanding of these were Mithras, Buddha, Zoroaster, Akhnaton, Moses, Shakespeare and the Master Jesus. These great leaders and hundreds of others were followed by their disciples and adherents who devoted their lives to spreading the Truth, the ancient or Arcane Wisdom, in the form of the great philosophies such as the doctrines of the Greek sages, the esoteric teachings of the Far East, and our present day schools of advanced learning. All these great institutions have given out information through symbols and allegories.

 

How to Develop your Intuition

canstockphoto17015676Do you know how to develop your intuition? Intuition is a natural faculty that anyone can learn to tap into. However, it does take some time and effort to become accurate at it. But practice makes perfect! The more you use your intuition, the easier it becomes to trust what is coming through. Basically, you just have to trust what impressions you are receiving to allow your intuition to work for you. But you do need discernment as to whether you can trust your intuition. It may be coming from your own brain centres.

You can check your intuition simply by asking the question; “Is this coming from my Higher Self? The Higher Self is always steady, patient and will get you to your correct answer. If the information is coming from the emotional level, it may appear to be either hesitant or unsure or give you the information too quickly and then fade out. The Higher Self will still be there, and you will feel steady and feel that this is right for you. However, if you would like to develop this natural ability even further, you will find some tips below.

1. Meditation

There are various meditation techniques available today; it is just a matter of finding one that suits your temperament. Relaxation is a natural side effect of meditating, and is a good way to start to prepare for the development of intuition. When you are relaxed and the mind is quiet, it is easier for intuitive impressions to impact upon your consciousness.

2. Remain in a positive state of mind

When you can free yourself from the stresses of everyday living, and take the time to become relaxed and quiet, that will do much to improve your intuitive ability. By staying positive, you attract positive streams of energy making it so much easier to intuit events.

3.  Learn to listen to the inner voice

If you are on the brink of making an important decision, release, relax and let go of all inhibitions, and head to quiet, peaceful surroundings where you can tune in and listen to the still, small voice within you; that voice is always there – but it won’t be apparent until you still your mind and emotions.

4. Allow some time

After releasing all those things that stop you from thinking and feeling clearly, allow some time for your intuition to filter through to your conscious mind. It is like stirring up a muddy pond—you have to wait till the sediment settles before you can see the bottom clearly. Give it a little time then….Bam!…. now you have your answer.

5. You can’t be intuitive and sad at the same time

Happiness attracts immense power and part of that power includes intuition. In learning to increase your awareness to develop your intuitive skills, your motivation must be selfless but positive. Natural gifts like intuition, if abused by trying to find numbers for lotto or such like, will always be counter productive to your highest good.

Intuition, in most circumstances is extremely helpful, because sometimes it leads you in a direction that could not be found otherwise. A lot of lives have been saved by intuition alone. Help has seemingly come out of nowhere because someone used their intuition, and instead of the person being led on a wild goosed chase, they actually discovered someone badly in need of help at an accident scene or they were able to help someone find the right way because they followed an intuitive hunch to go to a certain place.  Decisions are made easier if you are armed with this gift. Develop intuition now by lots of practice and reap benefits you have only ever dreamed about. It can also be fun while learning how to develop your intuition.

Evolution and Truth

canstockphoto11655951Do we rely on evolution and truth in the 21st century? To some, it would appear that truth evolves but, actually, truth neither evolves nor is it in a process of becoming. Many philosophers have given their opinion on this problem of truth and it is important to consider what truth actually is. What people gain from truth, and what they may interpret as an evolution of truth, is simply the degree of understanding that they have of it at any point in time in history. It is interesting to note that people learn about truth from others rather than consider what truth actually is.

Everyone has an idea of what truth is as they consider certain ideas applicable to themselves. So they arrive at their own decision as to how much truth these ideas contain. This merely produces an illusion that truth itself is in a constant state or process of becoming. The illusion that truth is changing accounts for the fact that many people accept truth as a relative thing. And this is quite so as truth does depend on the insight of each person who ponders it. Naturally, we all do not have the same insight as we are at different levels of learning and development. In the life of the individual and in the history of the human race truth seemingly has made many changes.

Truth for the modern man is different from what it was for the primitive man. The discoveries of all branches of learning constantly seem to change the truth. However, this is not so if you consider it carefully. Simple ideas held in the mind of primitive man to explain the obvious natural phenomena have been discarded by the discovery of universal laws, which produce a more factual presentation of the phenomena. In ancient times it was believed that the sun moved around the earth, but we now know that this is not the case at all.

That ancient belief was held for longer than the now accepted theory of the earth moving around the sun. Early mankind could only interpret nature’s laws from what he could see. To him, the earth seemed to be a flat plane; the sun seemed to rise up and pass across the sky and then set or disappear beneath the flat earth. This obvious appearance was considered as truth and even though we rejected this conception years ago, we still use the terms rising and setting, in connection with the sun. Just as man’s concept of truth has changed historically, so does it also change in the life of each person.

What is truth for a child is usually not truth for an adult. Many grow up still retaining what they consider to be the truth told to them by their peers, parents, teachers or some religious organization, while other individuals search desperately for the truth of the matter, as they inherently know that what they have been told is not correct. The growth of comprehension, the ability to reason and intuit, regardless of the accumulation of certain factual knowledge, allows a shift in consciousness and subsequently the point of view of the adult. When we look back into our own lives, and we see how our perception has altered, we are tempted to believe that truth itself has altered, but this is not so. Truth does not change; it is our perception of it that changes.

Truth is built on universal law. And universal law is immutable and irrevocable. It is mankind who changes to accommodate it through his own perception of it, and this is where we get the term relative truth., because individuals can only look at this problem of truth from his own point of view. Even if absolute truth were explained to him by a Master, he could do no more than turn it around and evaluate it from his own perspective. Therefore it is really pointless to argue over the problem of truth. What may have looked reasonable before may seem so different from what we accept today that it would appear, on the surface, that we are being concerned with two unrelated things. Actually, the relationship between primitive man and modern man, as between the child and adult, is a clear illustration of the fact that truth itself has not changed, but that only in degrees have we learned something of it.

Truth is inherent in ultimate universal reality and at the present time non-understandable to humanity. Man can only aspire to know the truth. He cannot know absolute truth; he can only know truth that is relative to his present state of development, and this he will use as a yardstick until a fuller truth is found. So truth does not evolve it simply is, according to universal lnaw. It is a constant to which man can evolve as he moves through the centuries. The evolution of man as a physical organism is incomplete, we will soon evolve into a different species; still humanoid, but composed of matter in a different configuration and frequency. We can now accept that an ultimate accomplishment or aim for man lies in the future, and that we do rely on evolution and truth to bring clarity into our lives.

 

What are Archetypes?

Projecting our inner world onto our outer environment is not something we do consciously. This is simply the way the subconscious functions. This projection happens so continuously and unconsciously that we are usually totally unaware of the process even taking place. These projections, however, are useful tools in gaining self-knowledge for as we become aware of what is happening, we begin to know who we are. There are major streams of energy that flow through each human being depending on the faceted configuration used for each incarnation. These streams are pure energy patterns or archetypal energy, but they become distorted by daily living and begin to colour the projection of energy in a specific manner

Down through the millennia, these projections began to assume personalities until in more modern times we began to know them as archetypes. These archetypes function in the subconscious in much the same way as instincts function in the conscious.

Although the specific form of these archetypes may vary from culture to culture and even from person to person, their basic character remains the same because they are based on the seven universal principles that have initiated our local universe. These seven principles have diversified into many forms and many archetypal images. The most commonly known archetypal images that we are familiar with are the 12 signs of the Zodiac, the 22 Tarot Trumps with their analogies to the 22 Hebrew Letters, the Egyptian gods and goddesses, the Roman gods and goddesses and the Greek gods and goddesses.

Sometime in the futureI may list a summary of some of the different guises that the seven principles of our local universe have donned over the years. They have never been embodied, but they have never left us. Their influence today is as strong as ever it was in the past. They exist in subtlety in the collective unconsciousness of humanity but their influence continues to come through the various nations and ultimately the personality types.

These archetypes that are expressed through astrology, the tarot, the Greek, Egyptian and Roman gods and goddesses are not of course, these beings, they merely represent the fact that these universal principles are known about through many different cultures.

Your Connection to the Divine

Waves of energy are passing through our solar system altering the course of all life. We can be aware of this occurrence through the avenue of our connection with our Higher Self. Everything is being lifted into a higher state of vibration and we can see this happening on our planet in many different areas. There has been a tremendous increase in knowledge since the end of the last world war, and it is increasing, almost doubling itself every couple of years. Many are feeling the effects of this higher vibration of light by receiving more insights, having more frequent telepathic experiences, and feeling a deeper need to know their function or life purpose and put it into action. This time has been foretold in our sacred writings.

The upheavals that are being experienced were likened to a woman travailing in birth. The planet is experiencing the birth pangs of a new age, and similar to a woman about to give birth, the process is a painful one. This symbology is also expressed in the archetypal symbol of The Empress in the Tarot deck.  If you read the Scripture reference in Revelation 12 you will understand the symbology of the card . . .

“And there appeared a great wonder in the heaven; a woman clothed with the sun, and the moon under her feet, and upon her head a crown of twelve stars. And she being with child cried, travailing in birth, and pained to be delivered . . . “

The symbology here alludes to the World Mother, the Cosmic Feminine Principle that is always travailing in birth, always trying to bring forth the highest from man . . . the birthing of the Christ Consciousness. The crown of 12 stars alludes to the 12 powers associated with the 7 major force centres, and the 5 new centres, that will be used in the new age. There is also an influence through the twelve signs of the Zodiac.

Depending upon the spiritual maturity of man, these upheavals need not occur. They are basically symbolical of the internal changes that may happen as the emotions, thoughts and attitudes of the personality are cleared to allow the higher vibrations to enter. The way to make this transformation easier is to remember your connection to the Divine.

The beginning of a new body of light is being built around the heart area. This is occurring because you are beginning to open the heart centre, and allow more kindness and compassion into your life. Those who experience congestion on the chest or unexplained heart flutterings are merely having difficulties accepting the higher frequencies, and will need to look at addressing those emotional issues that still cause them pain. Pain or hurt will only be felt if there are still unresolved issues to deal with, otherwise unconditional love for all will be experienced. If you are able to deal with, and clear issues as they come into your consciousness, your transformation will be relatively easy and you will be able to assist others as they feel the impact of the energies of the new cyclic of energies we are moving into.

As the frequencies increase, more and more people will be tuning in to what you are already experiencing. This will produce fear in some people, and some will try to shut off emotionally; many may reject the energy entirely, not willing to change at all. Some may try to deaden the effects of the energy through alcohol or drugs. Some will openly criticize the new ways and some will act with skepticism and doubt.

The energies will impact upon the weakest point in you to try to resolve the disharmony. The vibrations can only be raised once those areas causing the problems are brought back into a state of balance and harmony. The way you react to the increasing vibrations will ultimately affect the rest of humanity. If you can raise your vibrations, it will make it easier for others to raise theirs. And we have this in the words of the Master when he said . . . “And I, if I be lifted up from the earth, will draw all men unto me.”

As the vibrations increase, you will need to carefully watch your thought processes. It is important to learn to control your thoughts, to think positively, and not give in to the denser energy layers that surround the planet. The work of thought control ought to be given the keenest attention, a fact each one will realize for themselves at a later time. It is no longer a question of having what you want, but of making sure you want what you ask for . . . for you will get it. This is where the benefits of re-establishing your connection to the Divine will become apparent.

Spiritual growth is really a journey of self-discovery. The ancients knew this well as they instructed humanity . . . “Man, know thyself.” As you learn to know and understand yourself, you will correspondingly learn to know and understand the universe. This is why man is known as the microcosm, and the universe as the macrocosm.

Your spiritual journey will give you the tools to make your everyday life work because as you connect your will to the will of your Higher Self through the communion process, you will gain more awareness of the path of humanity’s evolution, and the part you are to play in it. As you energize your force centres, you will draw higher vibrations through from your Higher Self and you will begin to express the higher aspect of the force centres through the physical body. This will begin to lift the veils from your eyes, and your clairvoyance will gradually increase in proportion to the effort you are willing to put into the process. This will also have a corresponding effect upon the clairaudient faculty and you will find your inner guidance becoming clearer in proportion to the time you are willing to spend listening to it.

As you begin to connect more fully with the Divine, you will find that your Higher Self will work with your personality, assisting it to develop self-confidence, courage, self-love, mental clarity and emotional equilibrium as well as many other important qualities. This helps to develop the amount of radiance your being is capable of emitting. As you grow and develop different qualities, you may find yourself attracted to different processes or a different partner. Many relationships that are not in harmony will simply dissolve as the energies of the higher light frequencies impact upon the heart centre.

As you are a unique human being, trust your Higher Self to guide you to the experiences or processes that are most appropriate for you. Do not be tempted to look for phenomena as a gauge of your spiritual growth. Phenomena, if they happen at all, are merely side effects of walking a spiritual path. Many highly evolved souls do not demonstrate superhuman abilities, nor have any memories of past lives etc. If they are involved in some sort of service to humanity, their work acts as their meditation and provides a unique opportunity for spiritual growth.

Spiritual growth is the process of living in constant communication with the Divine to the degree that you can express qualities of your Higher Self whilst still on the physical plane. How does your Higher Self communicate with you? Initially, it talks to you through your intuition and feelings. It also communicates by sending you opportunities, coincidences and synchronicity, in the forms of people, events, books or anything else that will give you the messages you need to hear. If you learn to listen, you will experience expansions of your consciousness. If you do not listen, life will be painful until you do. It is now time to act; to procrastinate is folly. Remember your connection to the Divine!

The Power Within

There are millions of human beings on the planet today who are poverty stricken, illiterate, suffering from disease or severe illness, or who endure untold other problems. It is a struggle for these people to survive in an atmosphere of dejection and despondency. Life to them is a burden; it is far from being peaceful or even pleasant. Many of those who suffer seem to be caught an inescapable trap. They are convinced that there is nothing they can do, as they are victims of circumstances not of their own creation. It is sad that these people never expect the situation to change and are reconciled to a continuing life of sorrow, illness and unhappiness.

Sometimes some of them turn to those who apparently seem to have been blessed as richly as they have been cursed malevolently. They often assume that those who enjoy the richness of life acquired it in the same accidental manner as they inherited their life of abject misery.

If they have any strength about them, they will use the deprivation and suffering to stir an emotional spark within them; sometimes anger, sometimes frustration. But unfortunately this usually emerges as a negative reaction. While the self-generated force is good in a way, it is still negative and not what is needed; it would be better applied as a positive force in the form of determination or assertiveness. All too often this new-found energy is wasted in rebellion against “the haves” and the government is often blamed also for their short comings. Sometimes this results in a rebellion that has for its prime goal, destruction. And this can be destruction of the only present source of relief available to them. So they perpetuate a vicious circle that they cannot break out of.

Why would they want everyone reduced to one level, the level of total suffering and total misery? In what way could such a victory help those now suffering and rebelling? It is hard to fathom the reasoning.

WHY IS IT TAUGHT THAT ALL ARE BORN EQUAL?

Whether we like to admit it or not all human beings are created equal in the sense that they arrive on this earth with only their body and they depart from it in the same way. During the interlude on the earth plane phase of their existence, they have the same struggle for survival, the same basic body to train and develop, the same brain to think and reason. So what is the difference? Why doesn’t each one have the same opportunities, the same good health, the same type of loving family, the same career opportunities?

Basically one’s journey through the earth plane relies on the Law of Karma. Briefly, this law holds that the Source of all being has made life eternal and has ordained that the human, the ultimate projection from the Godhead, shall earn and bestow his own rewards and punishments or adjustments, not only within the span of a lifetime, but more justly from one lifetime to another until perfection has been attained through the process of reincarnation.

In this manner, the Logos in its infinite wisdom does not favor one and punish another, like a stern but emotional father, but rather permits each human to compensate for his own errors. Thus one who cruelly oppresses others in one

lifetime may suffer the same oppression in another lifetime to balance out the energies and provide a source of rich learning at the same time. Mostly humans do not recall their past lives, as the burden would be often too great to bear, so they start off afresh each lifetime, and are born into the exact circumstances that are needed to provide the most opportunity for soul growth. Humans have simply observed and recorded that “man grows through suffering.” However, this Law of Karma is little understood and it would take many volumes to go into detail of all the variations, which is impossible to do in this short article.

However it is important to remember that the law also works in the opposite direction, good works prepare the person for good rewards! The Law of karma is really the balancing of the energies.

So what about those who do not seem to suffer the same degree of suffering and misfortune as the majority? What is their secret? What do these people have? They have tapped into the power within and have realized their full potential for this lifetime.

What is the power within? It is the creative spark of the Creator, our ultimate source, implanted in the fetus when the mother says her baby is quickening. The spark projects forward an emotional/mental body and it is here at the deepest level of this structure, that the facets containing the reincarnating principles are contained; facets relating to the primeval urges of self-preservation and reproduction. Other facets relate to the autonomic nervous system; some relate to the brain centres and the organs while other relate to the type of personality needed for this incarnation. All this goes in conjunction with the information contained within the chakra system.

So it is the realization and recognition of that power within that makes the difference in individual personalities. With the use of that power man can change his life and his world in accordance with his ability to desire to dream and to imagine.

The use of the power within is not dependent upon man’s environment or education. We could say that man’s environment and education are results of the power within! What is contained within is expressed without.

The mechanics of applying the power within are first the awareness of its presence as the divine spark within; the spark of Creative Source. This awareness allows us to depend upon ourselves and not have to depend entirely upon others, but that we have the power within our own being to change ourselves and our circumstances. We have been given a creative imagination to be able to do this and to attract what we desire into our lives to make for a fulfilling incarnation. One does not have to be rich to use the creative imagination—anyone can do this—in fact most do it and call it daydreaming, but most don’t use it scientifically to achieve results.

If you want to bring it into manifestation then you have to work hard to do so. Mother nature has provided a brain and the creative imagination as tools for you to use while on the earth plane, and the know how to do this but she does not provide the money to bring it about—this is where you keep visualizing and work hard to bring it into manifestation. So learn to use your God given power within and it will provide the increasing inspiration to do even more, “success breeds success.” But anyone can start with modest goals!

Of course there may not seem to be opportunities for the most underprivileged, but even they can begin with little goals and succeed because everyone has this power within and the power works for all. From little successes they can move on to larger goals, and from that to even great and famous goals. This is the history of humanity! Once upon a time, all men were underprivileged and suffering by today’s standards; how did we ever get by without our computers, iphones and TVs, even our fridges and washing machines? Except for some who used the power within to create these things for us, we would still be living in caves.

What is this power within? Your gift to achieve whatever it is you are supposed to do this lifetime. Don’t misuse it for frivolous things—but connect with your Higher Self and discover whatever it is you were put here on this planet to achieve. Use the power within!
