Three Suns

My Three Suns – And What they Represent

The Three Suns and the Intellect

“Certain Rosicrucian scholars have given special appellations to these three phases of the sun: the spiritual sun they called Vulcan, the solar and intellectual sun, Christ and Lucifer respectively, and the material sun, the Jewish Demiurgus Jehovah. Lucifer here represents the intellectual mind without the illumination of the spiritual mind; therefore it is ‘the false light.’ The false light is finally overcome and redeemed by the true light of the soul called the Second Logos, or Christ. … In the rare treatise ‘The Secret symbols of the Rosicrucian’ Franz Hartmann defines the sun alchemically as: ‘The symbol of Wisdom. The center of power or heart of things. Each living being contains within itself a center of life, which may grow to be a sun. In the heart of the regenerated, the divine power, stimulated by the Light of the Logos, grows into a sun which illuminates his mind.’”~Manly P. Hall

We would say three suns rather than three phases of the sun, but the basic idea is the same. There is the physical sun which equates to our physical body, the psychic or intellectual sun that equates to our psychic body, and the spiritual sun that relates to and effects the spirit and soul. A special note should be made of the fact that hall equates the physical sun with both matter and the Demiurge which he says is the Jewish God Jehovah. Something to ponder.

God, Satan, and a Changing World

Be Part of the Changing World

“But if it undertakes to speak of the immeasurable Space, then it becomes full of Lies, and is troubled and confounded: for it belies the unmeasurable Deity; as Antichrist does, which will have the Deity to be only above the starry Heaven, that thereby himself may remain to be God upon Earth, riding upon the great beast, which yet must shortly go into the original lake of brimstone, into the kingdom of King Lucifer, for the Time is come, that the Beast shall be revealed and spewed out; … There is a wall and seal before the servants and ministers of Antichrist, till the wrath be executed upon her whoredom, … and till the eyes of the blind be opened;” ~Jacob Boehme

Why would speaking about the “Immeasurable Space” make lies of it? Modern scientists in the field of Quantum Physics, tell us that a thing is changed simply by being observed, so we cannot be certain what was there before we observed it. That may be part of what Boehme is talking about, in a sense, but I think it is something else. When He speaks of immeasurable space, he is talking, I think, about the spiritual realms, not the physical space of the universe of matter which, while enormous, is not truly infinite, and it therefore measurable (though we may not currently have the ability to measure it). He goes on to say that God (the Deity) is unmeasurable, implying therefore that the universe of God, the spiritual one is infinite and timeless. Continue reading “God, Satan, and a Changing World”

Writers Who Help Awaken the Spirit

Great Writers can Awaken the Spirit in Us

“Speak to the awakening Spirit of Humanity, to the human Spirit and the Spirit in man, these three in one and the one in all. Dickens and Thackeray, both born a century too late—or a century too early—came between two tidal waves of human spiritual thought, and though they have done yeoman service individually and induced certain partial reforms, yet they failed to touch Society and the masses at large. What the European world now needs is a dozen writers such as Doestoevsky. … What the Russian novelist has done is this: he spoke boldly, even fearlessly the most unwelcome truths to the higher and even to the official classes—the latter a far more dangerous proceeding than the former. … It is writers of this kind that are needed in our day of reawakening; not authors writing for wealth or fame, but fearless apostles of the living Word of Truth” ~H. P. Blavatsky

Awaken the spirit

Books that Enlighten

I have read several of Dickens’ novels and I agree that there is a strong spiritual underpinning to them. I have also seen several movie versions of his “A Christmas Carol”, also known simply as “Scrooge” this week and it is one of the best Christmas tales ever. His writing does seem to be more about social issues such as poverty and government corruption than spiritual things. At least he is famous for such lines spoken by Marley as, “Mankind was my business. The common welfare was my business.” I don’t believe I have ever read any of Thackeray’s novels, but Wikipedia says he wrote satire that attacked high society and the military establishment.

Fyodor Dostoyevsky is indeed one of the greatest writers and one who makes us thing. I have read several of his works. While he too writes about poverty, crime, injustice and corrupt governments, he does it in a more subtle way than Dickens. Continue reading “Writers Who Help Awaken the Spirit”

Gaia Paradox

The Gaia Paradox is Easily Resolved

Resolving the Gaia Paradox

There is a theory, or more accurately a belief, that the planet Earth is itself a living, conscious being. Most commonly, those who believe this use the name Gaia for describing this Mother Earth. I do believe the planet is a living being, but that does create an apparent paradox.

Because I am a living being, virtually every part of me is alive. My head, my hands, my feet, my heart, and so on, are all alive. My hair, nails, and outer layer of skin may be dead, but mostly, all of me is alive. If something caused a part of me such as a foot to die, it would have to be amputated or the disease or rot would spread. This is simple logic that nearly everyone understands. Yet Gaia, Mother Earth, is about ninety percent made of nonliving material. Mountains, lakes, rocks, sand, air are all considered nonliving. That would mean that the living being called Gaia is made of mostly nonliving things. That doesn’t make sense and that is what I mean by the Gaia paradox: we know Gaia is alive, but how can a living being be made almost entirely of non living material?

The solution to this paradox, fortunately, exists. We need to accept that all is living, though some life may be in forms that science does not yet recognize as life. So mountains really are living things. So are rivers, lakes, stones, and crystals. Simply because something doesn’t move and doesn’t breath doesn’t make it nonliving. Most scientists would disagree with that, yet most will admit that they don’t really know what life is.

This idea that all is living brings up many questions. If the Earth is a living being, is it conscious, does it think? Do rivers, mountains, and wind have enough free will to do what they want to? If Earth is a living being, than what about other planets, the stars, the sun? What about the universe? All good questions.

The Earth does have a mind and does think, though it is a very different kind of thinking. In a sense, the Earth mind is made up of all the minds of all living beings on it, and of all people who have died without awakening their soul so they can rise to higher level of being. So if Gaia seems a little confuse, a little insane at times, that is why.

Rivers, mountains, rocks, wind and so on do have a very limited consciousness: nothing can exist without it. Consciousness is, in part, the glue that holds things together, so everything must have some level of it or the thing would just fall apart.

If Earth is a living being that thinks, than it is logical to believe that all planets are the same, though to different degrees. Since the Gaia mind is mostly made up of the minds and thoughts of all life on the planet, a planet that has nothing living on it would have a very limited mind compared to others. But then many planets have lifeforms on them that we simply don’t recognize because science, in it’s arrogance, expects all life to be very similar to Earth life. Obviously, if the universe is made up of many living planets and stars, than the universe itself is a living thing.

At the other end of the scale, science would say that the tiny atoms contain no life at all, even though they have no idea what life actually is. But we, and all physical lifeforms, are made entirely of atoms, so where is life? Squished in between those atoms? No, of course not. Logically, if a being made of atoms is alive, then the atoms must be living things also. And since all the rocks, mountains, rivers, planets, stars and galaxies in the physical universe are made of atoms, they must all be living. If we then go to the higher, spiritual planes of reality, this is even more true. God created the spiritual worlds and he does not create death or disease. God is living and all he creates is living, so everything that is spirit is living. And that is another reason why everything must be alive on some level. Everything physical has a spiritual counterpart behind it, generating it, powering it. Since that spirit is alive, so is the physical being or thing. So death doesn’t really exist and there is no paradox. Gaia is alive because all is alive.
