Transition Time Between Descent and Ascent

“A new epoch is now coming for humankind in which the Intelligent World will show people the way that they can return to their primordial Life and come to stand on good, solid ground. At present, most people live amid life’s illusions.

“During the involutionary process—that is, during the process of descending into the material world—materialized souls descended through great resistance into the densest matter of the Earth. In the process of descending, considerable energy is generated. …

“Although the Teaching of Love—that is to say, the path of ascent or evolution—has been taught to people, they still walk on the most difficult path.

“The Divas, the Angels, move along the easiest path: the path of the least resistance. That is to say, the Angels move along the path of love. …

“At present, we are in the transient time between involution and evolution. Because descent is followed by ascent, at the border between the two epochs—that is, his transient period—the greatest resistance, the greatest suffering, exists. That is why there are so many delays and obstacles at present Nevertheless, once the evolutionary process begins, the forces will be directed upward.” ~Beinsa Douno

Transition Time

What Douno calls the transient time, I prefer to call the transition time. Transient generally means something that is constantly moving or exists temporarily. While this transition time is temporary, like any other time period, I don’t think we can say it is constantly moving or changing. At least I don’t think we can say that people are constantly moving. I think in the transition time, we have come to a standstill and must now choose our direction. We can continue to fall further into matter, or turn around and return to the realms of spirit.

The Descent

Douno says that during the process of descending into matter, we descended with great resistance. That is probably true. No one jumps into a bottomless pit voluntarily. And when we are falling into that pit, we naturally struggle to stop and escape. But that is only true if we realize that we are falling into a pit. If we didn’t recognize matter for the land of death and suffering that it is, we might have thought it would be a fun place to visit.

Some believe God sent us here to learn. While that makes sense to the logical mind, I don’t agree. What parent would throw their child into a fire so it could learn what it was like to burn? Learning from the land of death and error is not learning at all. It should instead be totally avoided.

Douno also says that man descended “ into the densest matter of the Earth”. That is not entirely true. While a few may have done that, most of us have not. That is fortunate because once you descend all the way down to the densest form of matter, there is no turning around. Yet it is true that since his first descent into matter, man has continued in the same direction, becoming denser and denser. That is why we are now at the transition time. We can descend no lower without losing the ability to turn around. It is now or never.

Path of Ascent

The path of ascent has never been closed to us. It has always remained open. Yet few have bothered to turn around and take that path. There are many reasons for that. Basic science will tell you that if you are driving a car, going faster, slowing down, or continuing at the same speed is much easier than turning around and heading in the other direction. In most cases, you will have to slow down almost to a stop before you can turn around. That basic law applies here as well. Another reason is that many of us are unaware that we are continuing to descend into matter and will be little more than a rock if we continue. They don’t believe in spiritual realms and therefore see no need to turn around.

But some people are doing it successfully. It isn’t easy. It isn’t quick. But it can happen if you are willing to work at it. And the rewards for doing so are great. One is eternal life. Another is complete knowledge and wisdom straight from the source.

Douno calls this path of ascent, the path of love. That is a good name for it. One of the things that we must learn in order to turn ourselves around and help others do the same is to love without conditions.

Douno also says that the false path is the path of wisdom. I think this is a poor choice of words on his part, or the part of his translator (he didn’t write in English). I believe he means the pat of Intellect, not wisdom. Those terms are considered interchangeable to many, but to spiritual people, especially Gnostics, they are not. Intellect refers to those things known by the human mind, and are limited in scope to the realm of matter. The mind can speculate about the spiritual, but not actually know it. Only the soul can know the spiritual. Real Wisdom is that knowing. So if you know the spiritual through a truly awakened soul, then following the path of wisdom is correct. It is the same path as the path of love.

More Transition Time

Douno says the transition time has more difficulties, more suffering, more obstacles than other times. This is true. One reason for this is the beings and forces of darkness. Yes, they do exist. Anyone who says otherwise is living in a cartoon. Those forces and beings don’t want us turning around. We would be heading away from their control. We would be taking away their favorite toys!

Another reason is that so few of us realize the need to turn around. Or we think we can put it off forever. So like the donkey that has to be hit upside the head to get its attention, we have to be hit with disasters, wars, plagues, and other horrors to awaken us. Not that God and His Angels are causing those things to happen. We are by not turning around while we can. So don’t let this transition period leave you behind. The ships of enlightenment will not wait around forever.

Not destruction, transformation to spirit

Transformation of Matter, Not Destruction

Destruction of Matter

“’Will matter be destroyed or not?’

“The savior said, ‘All natures, all formed things, all creatures exist in and with one another and will be resolved into their own roots. The nature of matter is resolved into its nature alone. Whoever has ears to hear should hear.”

“Peter said to him, ‘Since you have explained everything to us, tell us also, what is the sin of the world?’

“The savior said, ‘There is no sin, but you create sin when you mingle as in adultery, which is called sin. That is why the good came to be with you, to enter the essence of each nature, and to restore it to its root.’He continued, ‘That is why you become sick and die, for you love what deceives you. Whoever understands should understand. “Matter gave birth to a passion that has nothing like it and came from what is contrary to nature. Then there arises a disturbance in the whole body. That is why I said to you, ‘Be of good courage,’5 and if you are discouraged, still take courage in the diverse forms of nature. Whoever has ears to hear should hear.’” ~The Gospel of Mary

The Matter with Matter

We can assume from the name of this Gospel that it is Mary Magdalene asking the questions.

The question of whether or not the complete destruction of matter is at hand is a common one in religion and spiritual schools. Why is this question asked? Because in most mystery and spiritual schools, and in the early teachings of Christianity before they were altered by politicians, it was taught that matter was a mistake. God did not create matter, the fallen angels did. In Gnosticism, they say is was a being called the Demiurge who did it. That is really just another name for the fallen angels. Because matter was not created by God, it is a substandard creation. It constantly changes. The living beings in this dimension have to eat each other to survive. Not at all a place of God.

On hearing that about matter, it was natural for people to assume that God would want to destroy it in the same way that we want destruction of a cancer tumor. But Satan is the destroyer, not God. God deals with such problems differently.

Matter Resolved

As Jesus tells Mary, matter will be “resolved,” not destroyed.  In other words, it will be reclaimed by God. It will be transformed back into its original form as spirit. This will not happen instantly. It won’t even happen overnight. In fact, the process has already started. Scientists are aware of changes in the sun and the stars in recent years. They are not saying much about it because they don’t want to admit that they don’t know what is happening. It is not part of their limited understanding of reality. But spiritual masters understand. It is the beginning of the transformation.

So why doesn’t God complete the transformation in just a day? Because He is giving us and opportunity to redeem ourselves and join in that transformation. Many of us have grown so densely material, that trying to get us to change is like trying to get a stone to run a marathon. And since we do have a certain amount of free will, God will not force it on us. We need to make the decision to transform with the world. Some will remain stubborn and refuse. Hopefully, most of us will listen to that inner voice and join the process. Then there will be a redemption rather than destruction of matter. That’s how God works.

Primordial Life of Infinite Love

“For as long as you were outside the material world, you were idealists; you strived toward God and desired to sacrifice, to share everything. Nevertheless, when you descended into the material world, you forgot everything. In the process of descending, you lost something. You need to return to that state in which you were at the Beginning. Since ancient times, many beings ave lost their primordial, sublime life. The infinite Love of God strives to permeate them so that He may restore the Life and Light they have lost. Love wants to awaken all those who have fallen asleep. …

“A new epoch is now coming for humankind in which the Intelligent World will show people the way that they can return to their primordial life and come to stand on good, solid ground. At present, most people live amid life’s illusions.” ~Biensa Douno

Outside the Material World

If we were outside the material world, how did we eat, breath, sleep, etc? Could we even exist at all outside of the world of matter? Yes we could. Our real self could. Our physical body couldn’t, but it is but a shell or mask we are briefly in while stuck in the realm of matter. The real self is spirit. As such, it is eternal. Spirit exists outside of the limits of space and time. Therefore, our spirit and soul could, and did, exist outside the material world. This is what Douno is calling our primordial life.

Strived Toward God

We strived toward God in several ways. One way is that we tried to get closer to God. Not in a physical sense, but in terms of frequency and level of consciousness. Yet we did that with the idea of serving God better, not trying to take control from him. The idea of rebelling against God was the furthest thing from our spiritual minds.

Another way in which we strived toward God is that we sought to do whatever we could to further His Divine Plan. Exactly hat that might have been before the Great Fall, we don’t know. We do now that after the fall, he plan is to reclaim the lost part of the spiritual realm that became the fallen land of matter.

Primordial Infinite Love

In that primordial world, we had infinite love. Because most of us have lost touch with our spiritual faculties, we no longer feel that. But we can regain that primordial love for all. We simply have to awaken our dormant spiritual faculties.

Douno says that infinite love from God now tries to permeate everything in the physical realm. He further says love wants to awaken all who sleep. I’m not sure we can say that the energy that is making that transformation happen is love, but there is no doubt that God’s Love is the reason the transformation is happening.

A New Epoch

Many wonder why God has waited so long to correct the problems created by the Great Fall into matter. They forget that in the spiritual world of God and the angels, there is no space or time. So while God, from the perspective of that realm, may have fixed the problem instantly, it can take millions of years to manifest on our level where time and space do exist. Another reason is because God gave us a certain amount of free will. We must, therefore, choose to return to that primordial state of pure spirit before God will complete the transformation. But as we now enter a new epoch, God has sent His Sun of Righteousness into our physical sun to help awaken as many as possible. We can also help with that by letting others know that awakening is both possible and necessary. And when I say awaken, I don’t simply mean becoming aware that the physical realm is full of lies and illusion. I’m talking about bringing the dormant spirit and soul back to full consciousness. That is a process that has to be worked at, usually for years. People who claim to have done it instantly are living in fantasies. Continue reading “Primordial Life of Infinite Love”

The Great Soul in the Material Universe

“Let not merely the enveloping body be at peace, body’s turmoil stilled, but all that lies around, earth at peace, and sea at peace, and air and the very heavens, into that heaven, all at rest, let the great soul be conceived to roll inward at every point, penetrating, permeating, from all sides pouring in its light. As the rays of the sun throwing their brilliance upon a lowering cloud make it gleam all gold, so the soul entering the material expanse of the heavens has given life, has given immortality: what was abject it has lifted up; and the heavenly system, moved now in endless motion by the soul that leads it in wisdom, has become a living and a blessed thing.” ~Plotinus

The Great Soul

The concept of a great soul is not a new one. Plotinus, who live nearly 2,000 years ago, wrote of it. The basic idea is that there are no individual soul, but just one Great Soul that is in all of us. This concept makes sense when you consider that the soul is pure spirit, and therefore is beyond the limitations of time and space. It exists everywhere, and in all times. So that would mean that your soul is occupying the same space as mine, and Fred’s and Susie’s. Yet I still think that even if each of our souls is but a tiny piece of the Great Soul, each soul is still an individual to some degree. A stone in a stone wall doesn’t lose its individuality just because it is part of the wall.

Great Soul is also a term sometimes used to describe a highly evolved spiritual person like Jesus, or Gandhi. That isn’t what Plotinus means. He is talking about the One Soul of which all individual souls are a part. Continue reading “The Great Soul in the Material Universe”
