Sleeping Soul Must Awaken, and Soon

“Beloved reader, this is no jesting matter; he that accounteth it so, hath not tried it, neither hath he yet passed the Judgment; but his conscience is still asleep; and though it should be deferred to his latter days, which is very dangerous, yet he must pass through the Judgment or fiery trial. Happy is he that passeth through it in the time of his youth, before the Devil buildeth his fort of prey strong; he may afterwards prove a laborer in the heavenly vineyard. … This judgment continues a long while upon many a poor soul; several years, if he doth not earnestly and early put on the Armor of Christ, but stayeth til the judgment of tribulation.” ~Jacob Boehme

Sleeping Soul

Boehme says that in many of us the “conscience” is still sleeping. It is more accurate to say the spirit and soul are still sleeping. Many don’t realize that when we are born on the material plane, our body and mind awakens, but the spirit and soul do not. Our spiritual faculties do not like it here. It isn’t their realm, their land. So an effort must be made to awaken them.

Awaken That Sleeping Soul Now

Boehme further says that deferring your spiritual awakening until you are old and dying is “very dangerous”. It is dangerous because you can die at any age. Deciding to wait until you are old to awaken hose spiritual faculties often means you will never get it done. A second reason to not put it off is that awakening is just the first step on a long path. Your body and mind have to continue to grow and develop after you are born. Your awakened spirit has to continue to grow and develop also.

Mr. Boehme gives the third reason for getting it done. The more time you spend with your spiritual facilities dormant, the more the devil and the dark forces can control you. Boehme uses an excellent allegory when he calls it the Devil’s Fort. This “fort” is the false beliefs and false “knowledge” that you have been filled with by the dark ones and their materialistic agents. These mental filters are well-known to modern psychology. Everything, we see, hear, read, etc. is passed through these filters. Only that which is acceptable to them gets past those fort gates. Clearly, if you can break down the fort before it is tall and strong, the more likely you are to succeed. Continue reading “Sleeping Soul Must Awaken, and Soon”

Tree Hugging for Spiritual Growth

“You are fortunate if you love trees, and especially the wild ones growing where the Great Creative Force placed them, and independent of man’s care. For all things we call “wild” or “natural” are nearer the Infinite Mind than those which have been enslaved, artificialised and hampered by man. Being nearer the Infinite they have in them the more perfect Infinite Force and Thought That is why when you are in the midst of what is wild and natural – in the forest or mountains, where every trace of man’s works is left behind you feel an indescribable exhilaration and freedom that you do not realize elsewhere. You breathe an element ever being thrown off by the trees, the rocks, the birds and animals and by every expression of the Infinite Mind about you….

“You are fortunate when you grow to a live, tender, earnest love for the wild trees, animals and birds, and recognize then all as coming from and built of the same mind and spirit as your” ~Prentiss Mulford

Love Trees and Nature

While Mr. Mulford was not exactly a spiritual guru, much of what he wrote is applicable to those of us learning to be more spiritual. While many will think that getting closer to nature isn’t spiritual at all, it is. That is primarily because a natural environment is closer to God than the artificial kind found in cities.

In this particular chapter of his book, he concentrates on tress and why they are important. When he says that what is wild and natural is closer to the “infinite Mind” which is God, than that which is man made, he is correct. We all can’t get out into nature regularly. But almost all of us can get close to a tree, even one that has been planted in an urban area. Continue reading “Tree Hugging for Spiritual Growth”

Spiritual Wings That Take Us To Heaven

“When God created Adam, He did not provide him with bodily wings, like the birds,but He had designed for him the wings of the Holy Ghost, those wings which he proposes to give him at the resurrection, to lift him up and catch him away whithersoever the Spirit pleases—which holy souls even now are privileged to have, and fly up in mind to the heavenly frame of thought.

“everyone of us therefore ought to strive, and take pains, and be diligent in all virtues, and to believe, and to seek from the Lord that the inward man may be made partaker of that glory here and now, and that the soul may have fellowship in that sanctity of the Spirit.” ~St. Macarius the Egyptian

Spiritual Wings

Neither Adam, angels, or any other light beings ever had physical wings like a bird growing out of their back. It is understandable that artists centuries ago depicted them that way. Today we have much greater knowledge of light, energy, and the connected world of quantum physics. Yet even now we see angels and other spiritual beings being depicted as having giant bird wings sticking out of their backs.

Adam was a spiritual being when God created him. He needed no bird wings to help him fly. Spirits can move instantly from one place to another. They have no physical bodies, no weight, so they need no physical appendages to help them move. In fact, they don’t really move at all because spirits are not restricted by space and time. Without the restrictions of space and time, they are everywhere already. They simply shift their attention to another location and they are immediately there – because they always were. So the “wings” on spiritual beings are not wings in the normal sense at all, but merely beams of spiritual Light. These spiritual wings are the “wings of the Holy Ghost” because they spread spiritual energy into the world much like the Holy Ghost. Continue reading “Spiritual Wings That Take Us To Heaven”

Spiritual Energy from the Invisible Sun

“The energy of our physical, mental, and moral life comes from the Sun. I do not speak about the physical sun, about the disk, which we can see, but about the other Sun, which is invisible (behind the physical one). It produces all invisible results.

“Living creatures are doors, conductors of energies. The highest energies pass through man – the highest form.

“There is a certain energy, which comes down from the Sun and is invisible. When this energy comes to the Earth, the female principle turns this energy and light is born. Light was born by the woman on the Earth. Energy has come from the Sun through the man. Energy will come through your brain, through your head. This energy transforms through your stomach brains (the solar plexus) and life begins to function.” ~Biensa Douno

“God has sent into the world the Sun of Righteousness as a redeeming Light, and through it He opened the doors of heaven so that man may know of the life beyond.” ~Gene Savoy

Spiritual Energy from the Sun

There are many types of energy that flow to us and to the planet from the sun. Visible lights, ultra-violet light, x-rays, and so on. Some of this energies are beneficial, others are harmful. Some can be either beneficial or harmful depending on how we receive them. And as Mr. Douno notes, there is energy from the physical sun and energy from the spiritual sun. For those of us seeking spiritual development, it is the spiritual energy that is of greatest importance.

Conductors of Energy

Yes, we are conductors of energy. We are also generators of energy. It would be annoying when I was working in the Washington, DC area and I missed my train home and had to wait for a later one. It would be doubly annoying when my anger caused me to generate enough electricity to erase the magnetic strip on my railway ticket and I would have to buy another one.

But more important than the things that can happen on a physical level is what can happen on a spiritual level with spiritual energy. Tesla said it is all about energy and frequency, and he was right. The primary difference between spiritual and material is frequency. Spirit operates at much higher frequencies than matter. In order to become more spiritual, we need to raise our frequencies. We do that by taking in more spiritual energy that comes from the spiritual sun.

The Highest Energies

Douno says the highest energies pass through man. I think what he means by this is that those higher energies come down from the spiritual sun into humans (both men and women). It is then up to us to share that energy with other living beings. We do that by sending it out with positive thought of growth and love.

Another meaning of this energy passing through man is that not all of us are able to absorb this energy and use it. In fact, the majority cannot, at least not without training. This high-frequency spiritual energy will pass right through if you are not in the proper physical, emotional, and mental state. The real purpose for disciplines like Yoga is to get us into the condition where we can absorb those energies.

Through the Brain

Spiritual energy does usually enter our body at the top of the head, then travel down the spine to the bottom. It is part of spiritual raining that we pull that energy back up from the bottom of the spine and get it flowing fully.

That energy does transform in the solar plexus energy center. Then it can be sent our from that center to others. The solar plexus s also the center we use when communicating with animals.

The Key to Spiritual Growth

So the key to true spiritual growth is energy and frequency. We have to raise our frequencies to become more spiritual. Chanting, yoga, and crystals don’t make us spiritual. They are only tools to help us raise our frequencies safely and increase our intake of spiritual energy.
