Flowing Between Dimensions

“The Flow is the movement between what physicist David Bohm called the implicate (enfolded/nonphysical) order and the explicate (unfolded/physical) order. Bohm proposed that matter and consciousness are both holographic, in that they both enfold the structure of the whole within each part, and both are involved in a continuous process of enfoldment and unfoldment. … Bohm said consciousness is a process, and in each moment the content that was previously implicate (nonphysical) is presently explicate (physical). …
“It’s helpful to realize that there are two main frequencies of this rocking Flow. There are long cycles that pertain to your growth and creative processes, and there is the very vibration of matter itself. … All the while, In a concurrent, microscopic cycle, we’re blinking on and off, in and out, of physical reality like a … strobe light that never stops. Our reality, … is coming and going with us.” ~Penney Peirce

Abstract backgroundI have not heard this theory before and I find it a very interesting one. The idea that, much like a light bulb that is blinking on and off so rapidly it appears to be always on, we are blinking in and out of physical reality, going back and forth between the spiritual and the physical. But if you think about it, we are told by spiritual masters and gurus that matter cannot exist in a spiritual world and spirit cannot exist in a material one so, since we are part matter and part spirit, we exist in a world that is between the two called the third dimension (dimensions one and two are pure matter and dimensions four and higher are spirit worlds). It makes sense that in order for us to exist as both spirit and matter, we must flow between the two worlds, but we don’t even know we are doing it because our physical brain/mind only knows what happened in the physical half of the cycle.

Plato’s Atlantis

“From a careful consideration of Plato’s description of Atlantis it is evident that the story should not be regarded as wholly historical but rather as both allegorical and historical. Origen, Porphyry, Proclus, Iamblichus, and Syrianus realized that the story concealed a profound philosophical mystery, but they disagreed as to the actual interpretation. Plato’s Atlantic symbolizes the threefold nature of both the universe and the human body. The ten kings are the tetractys, or numbers which are born as five pairs of opposites. … With the trident scepter of Poseidon these kings held sway over the inhabitants of the seven small and three great islands comprising Atlantis. Philosophically, the ten islands symbolize the triune power of the Superior Deity and the seven regents who bow before His eternal throne.” ~Manly P. Hall

Candelabra

Candelabra (Trident) of the Andes. A symbol of Atlantis?

One reason we have so much difficulty understanding the writings of the ancients is that we tend to think everything they wrote is intended to be historical fact, or is completely symbolic allegory. Plato’s tale of Atlantis is just one of many that are a mixture of both. The trick is knowing what to look at as fact and what to interpret as allegory and try to find it’s real meaning. In can get even more confusing when something is a historical fact, yet is used as allegory to explain something else. Sometimes, it is fairly obvious, such as when we read about flying ships in ancient Hindu books, that this was almost certainly allegory, but what is it’s meaning?

Hall tells us that the tale of Atlantis is allegory for the threefold nature of the universe and the body. What does he mean by that? I thing he is saying that just as man is made up of three “bodies”: the physical, the psychic and the spiritual, so is the universe, and Plato reflects this in his description of Atlantis. So if you search for a place that meets the physical description of Atlantis in the hope of finding the place, it won’t work. Atlantis was a real place, but the description of it is largely allegorical. Continue reading “Plato’s Atlantis”

Ferry to Heaven

“The ferryman comes to the place of waiting, he of the winding river which is the tortuous channel of purification. The Newcomer stands at the mooring place and proclaims, ‘O ferryman, away to the region of the Blessed Ones. I am purified, purged of polluting evils; make haste, do not delay. I am a wanderer anxious to reach my destination. … Do not tarry, for I am anxious to depart from this somber shore. Have no fear, cautious one, for no evil dogs my footsteps. …’ The ferryman hesitates: he says, ‘Show me your token that I may know you have truly passed the tests, that I may know your true destination. …’ The Newcomer says, ‘My token is the brightness, which, if you be no imposter, you may see shining above my head, …” ~The Kolbrin Bible SCL:5:3-5

ferrymanWe are familiar with the tales of the ferryman who ferries people to Hades (Hell), but this story is of a different ferryman, or perhaps the same ferryman, but a different view of him. Here, it seems, the ferryman has a choice of destinations and can bring his passenger to the region of the Blessed or the Land of the cursed.

The new arrival asks the ferryman to take him to the place of the blessed ones, but the ferryman hesitates. The newcomer tries to encourage him to get moving, but the ferryman stays still. The Newcomer informs the ferryman that he has been purified and purged of pollution. What does he mean by that? Has he been pasteurized? Has he been mummified? Has he been soaked in some detox formula? No, that isn’t it. What he means is that he has purged himself of evil. The evils of materialism, ignorance, jealousy, negativity, violent behavior, and so on. He has done all this while still alive on the material plane so he will be ready and worthy of being taken to the place of the blessed ones. Continue reading “Ferry to Heaven”

Good, Evil and Neutral

“To deny Evil a place among realities is necessarily to do away with the Good as well, and even to deny the existence of anything desirable; it is to deny desire, avoidance and all intellectual act; for desire has Good for its object, aversion looks to evil; all intellectual act, all Wisdom, deals with Good and Bad, and is itself one of the things that are good.
“There must then be the Good—good unmixed—and the mingled Good and Bad, and the rather Bad than Good, this last ending with the Utterly Bad we have been seeking, just as that which Evil constitutes the lesser part tends, by that lessening, toward the Good. What then must Evil be to the Soul? What Soul could contain Evil unless by contact with the lower kind? … The Soul takes up false notions through having gone outside of its own truth by ceasing to be purely itself.” ~Plotinus

Yin and Yang fantasy with angelsThere are some well meaning spiritual teachers who claim that there is no evil, no good and bad, no right and wrong. Their concept is that God created all and, since God cannot be the author of evil, there can be no evil. While it is certainly true that God cannot create evil, the fallen angels, referred to as the demiurge.

Hand a bottle of poison to one of those gurus pushing the “there is no evil” philosophy and ask him to give it to his child sitting nearby and what answer will you get? I certainly hope he will refuse to poison his own child,but why? If there is no evil, what’s wrong with doing that? Maybe you would do better if you gave him a bomb and asked him to set it off in his temple while sitting on top of it, but I doubt it. There are things he simply will not do and the only logical conclusion is that he considers those acts evil. In other words, such gurus are hypocrites! If they agree there there are things you should not do like poison your children, then they are saying those things are wrong, bad, evil. Continue reading “Good, Evil and Neutral”
