“Since light is the basic physical manifestation of life, bathing all creation in its radiance, it is highly important to realize, in part at least, the subtle nature of this divine substance. That which is called light is actually a rate of vibration causing certain reactions upon the optic nerve. Few realize how they are waled in by the limitations of the sense perceptions. Not only is there a great deal more to light than anyone has ever seen but there are also unknown forms of light which no optical equipment will ever register. … Man is thus surrounded by a supersensible universe of which he knows nothing because the centers of sense perception within himself have not been developed sufficiently to respond to the subtler rates of vibration of which that universe is composed.
“Among both civilized and savage peoples color has been accepted as a natural language in which to couch their religious and philosophical doctrines. The ancient city of Ecbatana as described by Herodotus, its seven walls colored according to the seven planets, revealed the knowledge of this subject possessed by the Persian Magi. The famous zikkurat or astronomical tower of the god Nebo at Borsippa ascended in seven great steps or stages, each step being painted in the key color of one of the planetary bodies. It is thus evident that the Babylonians were familiar with the concept of the spectrum in its relation to the seven Creative Gods or Powers.” ~Manly P. Hall
In recent decades, we have learned that light is a far more important thing than we thought it was. This is primarily due to the discovery by Quantum Physicists that the entire universe of matter is actually a hologram made of light. Your car, your house, the ground you walk on is nothing but light. Your physical self is made of light. We sense this world of light with senses that are themselves made of light. Our different senses are not truly sensing different things, but different frequencies of light. So it should not be a surprise that the first step in creating this dimension of matter was to say, “Let there be light”. Continue reading “Radiant Light Manifesting Life”
“Then shall the righteous man stand in great boldness before the face of such as have afflicted him, and made no account of his labors. When they see it, they shall be troubled with terrible fear, and shall be amazed at the strangeness of his salvation, so far beyond all that they looked for. And they repenting and groaning for anguish of spirit shall say within themselves, This was he, whom we had sometimes in derision, and a proverb of reproach: We fools accounted his life madness, and his end to be without honor: How is he numbered among the children of God, and his lot is among the saints! … What hath pride profited us? or what good hath riches with our vaunting brought us? All those things are passed away like a shadow, and as a post that hasted by. … Even so we in like manner, as soon as we were born, began to draw to our end, and had no sign of virtue to shew; but were consumed in our own wickedness. For the hope of the ungodly is like dust that is blown away with the wind; … like as the smoke which is dispersed here and there with a tempest, and passeth away as the remembrance of a guest that tarrieth but a day. But the righteous live for evermore; their reward also is with the Lord, and the care of them is with the most High. Therefore shall they receive a glorious kingdom, and a beautiful crown from the Lord’s hand: for with his right hand shall he cover them, and with his arm shall he protect them. … Thus iniquity shall lay waste the whole earth, and ill dealing shall overthrow the thrones of the mighty.” ~The Wisdom Of Solomon
There are many different ideas of what a righteous person is. Most would say that it is someone who faithfully follows the rules of the church they belong to. But in the Book of Wisdom, it is a more universal and accurate thing. In this quote, it means one who faithfully follows the Way of God and the Laws of God, even when it is not popular to do so. That means following the actual Law of God, not some minister’s opinion of it.
Troubled with Fear
Why should others be troubled when they see that a righteous man has awakened and achieved salvation? Because it shows that their idea of the path to salvation is a false one. It shows that there is a true Way of God and variations created by man do not lead to real salvation.
Another reason might be that some people, specifically false priests, and government officials, don’t want people to have a true spiritual awakening. They like people to remain like sheep who can be easily manipulated, easily controlled. This is why false paths based on fear are often promoted by those authorities.

“Doth either the sun take upon him to do that which belongs to the rain? Or his son Aesculapius that which unto the earth doth properly belong? How is it with every one of the stars in particular? Though they all differ one from another, and have their several charges and functions by themselves, do they not all nevertheless concur and cooperate to one end?
“If so be that the gods have deliberated in particular of those things that should happen unto me, I must stand to their deliberation, as discrete and wise. For that a god should be an imprudent god, is a thing hard even to conceive: and why should they resolve to do me hurt? For what profit either unto them or the universe (which they specially take care for) could arise from it? But if so be that they have not deliberated of me in particular, certainly they have of the whole in general, and those things which in consequences and coherence of this general deliberation happen unto me in particular, I am bound to embrace and accept.” ~Marcus Aurelius
Sun and Rain in Cooperation
Aurelius is correct in saying that the sun doesn’t try to do the job of the rain. Neither does winter try to do the job of summer. Frogs do not injure themselves trying to fly and squirrels don’t try to swim underwater like fish. Each thing has its own purpose and its own environment to live in. When they try to usurp that of another species, chaos ensues. Fortunately, that rarely happens.
While the point Aurelius is making is true, there is one thing he misses. The sun is more involved in the activities of other forces and beings than he thinks. Studies in modern times have shown that patterns of sunspots and other cycles on the sun can be used to predict such things as earthquakes and hurricanes. So you might say that while it is true that the sun doesn’t do the job of the rain, the sun may often act as a kind of supervisor directed the rain and the wind, the sky and the earth.
For Everything There is a Purpose
Everything has its own purpose and there is nothing that does not have a purpose. It may be that the only purpose of some things is to irritate and annoy us humans, or make us sick, but that is still a purpose. Sometimes, we need to be taught humility. The important thing is that each thing, each being, must serve its own purpose and not try to do the job of another.
Just take your physical body as an example. If your liver suddenly decided it wanted to do the job of the heart, and the heart wanted to do the job of the stomach, you wouldn’t last long. Your heart is not equipped to digest food and your liver can’t pump blood like the heart does. When each part does its own job and all of them work together in harmony you live a long and healthy life. When your body parts don’t do their job, or try to do something else, you end up getting cancer or having a heart attack. So it is not only important for each thing to do its job, it also has to do it in cooperation and harmony with the other parts.
That need isn’t limited to our physical bodies. Our planet is a physical body. The universe of matter is a physical body. On all levels, that cooperation and coordination must happen to keep things going smoothly. When one species on Earth does whatever it wants with no regard for others, disasters happen. When one planet get out of harmony with the universe, it has to be stopped. Either something will be done to get the planet back in line, or it will be destroyed. The overall health and harmony of the universe is more important than and one planet or star.
The Physical and the Spiritual
There also has to be harmony and cooperation between the spiritual and physical levels of reality. Even though the physical universe is an error created by the Demiurge, the fallen angels, it must function with the other levels. It does that to a large degree, but not as much as necessary. That is why it must be changed back into spirit. Spirit always stays in harmony, matter doesn’t. Matter doesn’t accept the superiority of the spiritual universe so it doesn’t cooperate with it any more than it has to.
One reason why cooperation and harmony doesn’t always work well is because there are so many things and beings to cooperate with. This is where a hierarchal structure comes into play. It is where a supervisor is needed. God is he ultimate supervisor of all of it. He may give some such powers to his angels, but God Himself still remains in charge. It was only when the fallen angels decided to do things on their own that the aberration of the physical universe happened. If they had stayed within God’s law, everything would have remained in harmony and we wouldn’t have death and disease. But that cooperation and harmony must be maintained. For that reason, the physical universe must be repaired.
