invisible beings

Invisible Beings of Spirit and Truth

“It is worthy of notice that, while rejecting as a superstition of Occultism, and religion too, the theory of substantial and invisible beings called Angels, Elementals, etc. – without, or course, having ever looked into the philosophy of these incorporeal entities, owing to observation and discovery, should have unconsciously been forced to adopt and recognize the same ratio of progression and order in the evolution of chemical atoms as occultism does. … Let it be remembered that Fire, Water, and Air, or the ‘elements of primary Creation’ so-called, are not the compound elements they are on Earth, but noumenal homogeneous Elements – the Spirits thereof. Then follow the septenary groups or hosts. Placed on parallel lines in a diagram with atoms, the natures of those beings would be seen to correspond in their downward scale of progression to composite elements in a mathematically identical manner, as to analogy. This refers only to diagrams made by the Occultists; for were the scale of Angelic Beings to be placed on a parallel line with the scale of the chemical atoms of Science – from the hypothetical helium down to uranium – they would of course be found to differ. …

“In esoteric philosophy, every physical particle corresponds to and depends on its higher neumenon – the Being to whose essence it belongs; and above as below, the Spiritual evolves from the Divine, the psycho-mental from the spiritual.” ~H. P. Blavatsky

Invisible Beings

There are even today many who still can’t accept that there could be invisible beings. Yet it is not so strange as it sounds. Even if we look just on the physical level, we find some exotic fish, squid, and other sea creatures that are almost completely transparent. They may not be totally invisible, but they are difficult to see if you are not looking for them.

That last sentence may be key to it more than anything else. There are so many things around us to see, even just on the level of matter, that it is impossible to “see” all of them. That is because seeing a thing involves the mind as much as the eyes. Your eyes may see something, but if your mind doesn’t care, or doesn’t believe in it, it doesn’t register on your conscious mind.

If you are interested in art, but not in flowers, and you walk through a garden that is full of artworks, you might be able to answer many questions about what artworks you saw, but couldn’t answer a single one about the flowers. So to you, the flowers are invisible.

But beyond that type of invisible beings are those that are invisible because they are not material. Spiritual beings cannot be seen by the physical eyes unless they wish to make themselves visible. Even then, you are probably not seeing them, but actually “seeing” an image they have sent into your mind, they may not be their true form.

It is possible to see these being, and in their true form, but not with the eyes of the physical body. Instead we must use the spiritual sight of the soul. The soul must, of course, be awakened first. A sleeping soul sees little. Continue reading “Invisible Beings of Spirit and Truth”

sun life

Sun Life and the New Golden Age

“Through the changing relations of the Sun, there appears now in the human being himself, as has been already indicated, a change in the conditions of life. Things so shape themselves that when the human being is dominated by the Sun influence, he devotes himself more to the Sun life and its phenomena than to himself. At such times he feels the greatness and glory of the universe; he, so to speak, absorbs them. Those very exalted beings who dwell on the Sun then influence the Moon, which again influences human beings. … It is then that the physical and the etheric bodies attain a definitive size and form. … Man gave himself up to the enjoyment of the universe in a kind of Sun life. During this period he was carried beyond his own life; he lived more spiritually. … He felt as though the forces of the universe were streaming into him.” ~Rudolf Steiner

Relations of the Sun

In the quote, Steiner is writing about ages in the distant past. He calls one such age the Sun eon, and another the moon eon. But just about everything he says in the quote can be equally applied to shorter, more recent periods of time. In fact, it can be applied to a single day, but to different individuals living as either Sun people or Moon people.

We have always had a close relationship with the sun. But in recent centuries, we have been convinced to push that connection aside in one way or another. Centuries ago, it as done mostly through religion. The state-approved churches put down any forms of sun gazing as pagan sun worship. They preached that anyone who did such a thing would never be welcomed in heaven. But simply because a religious or spiritual practice predates Christianity does not mean it is wrong.

Change in Conditions

While the practitioners of modern Astrology often exaggerate the influence stars ad planets have on us, they are correct in saying that they do have an influence. The locations and conditions of the sun, moon, stars, and planets all change the conditions of the world we live in. When the conditions change, they change us. But they do not force us to behave in any particular way. They only guide us toward certain things, for better or worse.

Sun Life

In Steiner’s ancient cosmology, a sun age came first, then a moon age. The sun age was more spiritual, the moon age more materialistic. This sun age ended long ago. The moon age of materialism is still happening.

In that sun age, man’s life was different. We did not have the dense physical bodies we have now. Because our bodies were almost pure spirit, we didn’t need to eat matter to survive. We lived on energy, on spiritual light. In the sun age, we were as concerned about others as we were about ourselves. We did things to benefit all rather than doing just what benefited ourselves. We shared everything we had with friends and family. The idea that we owned anything made no sense to us at all. The whole concept of ownership was unknown.

Moon Life

But dark beings and influences got to us. They convinced some to start consuming matter. They convinced some to start claiming ownership of things. Before long, we were in a moon age, an age of materialism. In this age, we have wars and diseases. We have greed and envy. Practically everything negative belongs to the moon age. But now that is changing one more.

A New Sun Life

We are at the dawn of a new solar age. This is primarily because God has sent us the promised Sun of Righteousness. That’s “sun,” not “son”. The Sun of Righteousness might be thought of as a special edition of the spiritual sun. It has more energy than the previous spiritual sun. It has higher frequencies than the older sun. It sends spiritual light and consciousness toward us at a much greater rate than before.

As a result, some of us are awakening. As we awaken, we turn around and start changing from moon-age beings to a new sun life. As solar beings, we consume less matter, but take in more energy. We start thinking of others as much as ourselves. Killing other beings, plant or animal, without a good reason is not acceptable to us. Most of all, we gradually raise our consciousness levels, with the aid of the spiritual light from the Sun of Righteousness, to higher and higher levels. As we increase our levels of consciousness, we become able to communicate with higher beings like angels and light beings. We learn truth and wisdom. Gnosis is achieved. And the darkness and the beings of darkness will be banned forever in this new age of light. So start becoming part of this new sun life now.

higher worlds

Higher Worlds and the Beings that Live There

“There are entities of the higher worlds in the hierarchy of Being so immeasurably high that to us, they must appear as gods, and collectively—God. But so we, mortal men, must appear to the ant, which reasons on the scale of its special capacities. The ant may also, for all we know, see the avenging finger of a personal God in the hand of the urchin who, in one moment, under the impulse of mischief, destroys its anthill, the labor of many weeks-long years in the chronology of insects. … Who knows and who can affirm or deny?

“The refusal to admit in the whole solar system of any other reasonable and intellectual beings on the human plane than ourselves is the greatest conceit of our age. All that science has a right to affirm is that there are no invisible intelligences living under the same conditions as we do. It cannot deny point-blank the possibility of there being worlds within worlds under totally different conditions to those that constitute the nature of our world; nor can it deny that there may be some limited communication between some of those worlds and our own.” ~H. P. Blavatsky

Higher Worlds

Higher worlds are of basically two types. There are those that are part of our physical universe, and those that are none-physical. The higher level physical “worlds” are giant gas planets, stars, and possibly others we have yet to discover. Our science and logic tells us no beings, or at least no higher-level beings can exist in such places. Only things like microbes and germs could live there. But that is because we think of life only as it exists on Earth. Living beings can exist in such places that are so different from us, we wouldn’t even recognize them s beings if one was standing right in front of us. This is particularly true of the stars. We think stars are so hot nothing can live on or in them, but we are wrong. Beings of a very different nature do live there. Live is found almost everywhere. The life force is every bit as powerful as gravity, and reaches just as many places. Continue reading “Higher Worlds and the Beings that Live There”

sharing light

Sharing Light and Truth With Others

“The rich and enlightened man shall distribute gifts to all the angelic choirs and all spirits, each in particular according to its merits, out of the richness of his God and out of the generosity of his own ground; which is illuminated and overflowing with great and wonderful gifts. … This enlightened man goes swiftly and in ghostly wise round through all the heavenly hosts, rich and overflowing with charity, and enriching and inundating the whole celestial company with fresh glory out of the richness and abundance of the trinity and unity of the Divine Nature. This is the first going out, towards God and towards all saints.” ~John of Ruysbroeck

Sharing is Caring

Yes, sharing is caring . And it is one of the first things most of us are taught as spiritual students. At least if the school we follow is legitimate. But we are also taught that there are things we should share and things we shouldn’t.

We should share with others that we are on a path of spiritual enlightenment. We shouldn’t share everything we have learned without the permission of our teacher(s). Some things must be kept secret from those who are not ready to learn them. This is for their protection as well as the protection of others.

When we take in spiritual light, we should share some of that with others. We send some out to others filling it with thoughts of peace and love. We send it out to plants and animals as well. In many cases, they will send their light back to us. This is one way we learn and become part of The One. Continue reading “Sharing Light and Truth With Others”
