Unfolding Spiritual Consciousness for Growth

Unfolding Spiritual Consciousness

“As man unfolds spiritually he feels his relationship to all mankind, and he begins to love his fellowman more and more. It hurts him to see others suffering, and when it hurts him enough he tries to do something to remedy it. As time goes on and man develops, the terrible suffering which many human beings undergo today will be impossible, for the reason that the unfolding Spiritual Consciousness of the race will make the pain felt so severely by all that the race will not be able to stand it, and they will insist upon matters being remedied. From the inner recesses of the soul comes a protest against the following of the lower animal nature, and although we may put it aside for a time,it will become more and more persistent, until we are forced to heed it. The old story of each person having two advisors, one at each ear, one whispering to him to follow the higher teachings and the other tempting him to pursue the lower path, is shown to be practically true by the occult teachings regarding the three mental principles. The Intellect represents the ‘I’ consciousness of the average person. This ‘I’ has on one side the Instinctive Mind sending hin to the old desires. … On the other side is the Spiritual Mind, sending its unfolding impulses into the intellect, and endeavoring to draw the consciousness up to itself … and to cause him to master and control his lower nature.” ~William Walker Atkinson

As Man Unfolds

It would be nice if we could say that all of humanity is growing spiritually, but the truth is that only a small minority are doing so. The success of Trump, and similar politicians in several other countries, shows that a large percent of the population still clings to materialism and their lower instincts and animal nature. But now that the Sun of Righteousness is here and is growing stronger all the time, more and more people will awaken to some degree and turn toward the development of the unfolding Spiritual Consciousness which is the only way that mankind can be saved from total destruction in the years ahead.

Being Energy, Being Solar, Being Spirit

“Being energy the vibrational frequency of our intentions, thoughts, and actions determine the experiences of the life we live. This is an absolute truth. When truth is discussed within spiritual realities, it takes on an absoluteness. This absoluteness is part of the quantum level of understanding. Spiritual truths and knowledge, when fully understood, stabilize your consciousness from within and create a firm foundation. This allows you to climb to higher truths and realities that are spiritual and existing as a part of the soul’s consciousness. Our consciousness has the ability to know and understand truth at a quantum level and the ability to duplicate perfectly what these quantum truths are. Quantum spiritual truths will create a completeness in the ability to know within our consciousness. When information is being gathered and accepted, at a quantum level, your inner knowingness will allow you to receive and understand, with perfect duplication, any new quantum information that you are accepting as a part of your realities. As your realities adjust innately to quantum realities and truths, your ability to understand these new truths will be crystallizing, allowing you to process automatically what is being said, with a completeness. Understanding and completeness are stages of learning that eventually become quantum realities and truths. The ability to know and understand at a quantum level creates a completeness and clarity to help you reawaken the consciousness of the truths within you. It is this very stage of complete understanding that is creating the future for absolute and unlimited knowledge.” ~Teresa Reed Conroy

Being Energy

Yes, thoughts, emotions, and desires are energy. And like all energy, they do work; they affect change in things. So as Conroy says, they “determine the experiences of the life we live.” But here is what it gets tricky and where the “Manifest what you want” crowd goes wrong: Everyone’s thoughts and emotions are affecting the world around us, not just our own. Even the thought of those who don’t believe such things, even angry and jealous thoughts, rise up to the sun, where they are amplified and reflected back to Earth and the other planets. Therefore, it should not surprise anyone that what the sun is reflecting to us most of the time is causing storms, floods, droughts, earthquakes, and other unfriendly phenomena. It isn’t that the sun hates us, it is simply reflecting back at us what we sent to it. Continue reading “Being Energy, Being Solar, Being Spirit”

bread made of corn

Bread Made of Corn, Bread of Light

Bread Made of Corn

“For a man to say, ‘This bread is made of corn,’ is easy enough. He should tell us how bread is prepared in detail, and baked. To talk of freedom from passions, and of perfection, is easy, but to experience to be brought to perfection is the lot of few. The gospel says in short compass, ‘Thou shalt not be angry; thou shalt not covet. If any man smite thee, turn to him the other also. If any man judge to take away they cloak, give him thy coat also.’ The apostle, tracing out how the work of cleansing should be done, little by little with patience and perseverance, teaches at large, first feeding with milk, like babes, then carrying on to growth and to full age. The gospel said that the garment was made of wool, the apostle declared in detail how it is made.

“So those who utter spiritual discourses, without tasting what they discourse of, are like a man who travels on a desert plain, assailed by burning heat, and being thirsty, draws a picture of a running stream of water, with a sketch of himself drinking, when all the while his lips are parched, and his tongue also, by the thirst that possesses.” ~St. Macarius the Egyptian

The Bread Made of Corn

St. Macarius is talking in allegory throughout this Homily. As a spiritual adept and teacher, he doesn’t care whether or not you know what your bread is made from or to have you know how to bake bread. That is if you interpret “bread” literally. But you shouldn’t. He is really speaking of an allegorical bread, a spiritual bread. It is the bread that Jesus used to feed the multitude. It is the Bread that Jesus taught us to pray for in the Lord’s Prayer. Neither of those is about physical, literal bread, but instead about the food of the spirit and soul, which is Spiritual Light.

So St. Macarius is saying that we need to know what the spiritual bread is made from, Spiritual Light, but we also need to know how that bread is “baked”. In other words, we need to know how to get that Light into us to awaken and nourish our spiritual faculties. Continue reading “Bread Made of Corn, Bread of Light”

supreme light

Supreme Light that Dispels All Darkness

“Those knowers of Brahman (who have purified their mind through the withdrawal of the senses and other means like Brahmacharya) see everywhere the supreme light of the ancient One who is the seed of the universe and the light that shines in the Effulgent Brahman. May we too having perceived the highest light which dispels darkness, reach it. Having perceived the highest light in our own heart we have reached that highest Light which is the dispenser of water, rays of light and the Prānas shining in all gods—we have reached that highest light. It is the light of the Supreme Being that is in the eternal light and in all the luminaries of the galaxies, such as the sun, the moon, and the stars. It is His light that is in wood, lamps, candles, and is the energy in all living beings. His light is behind all lights and the source of all energy in the universe. …

“The Sun is Brahman—this is the teaching. The further explanation of this (is here given). Before creation, this universe was non-existent. Then it became existent. It grew; it turned into an egg; it lay for a period of one year; (and then) it burst open. Of the two halves of that egg-shell, one was of silver and the other of gold. Of these, that which was of silver is this earth. That which was of gold is heaven. That which was the outer membrane is the mountains. That which was the inner membrane is the mist together with the clouds. Those which were the veins are the rivers. That which was the water in the lower belly is the ocean. And that which was born is the yonder sun.” ~Chandogya Upanishad

Knowers of God

Those who truly know God (or Brahman) do see everywhere the Supreme Light. They see it in the land and the sea, in the greatest stars and the tiny mustard seed. They see it in the living and in that which is, according to material science, non-living. Most of all, they see it in the Sun. They see glimmers of it in the physical, mundane sun, but mostly, they see it in the Spiritual Sun. They can see what others cannot because they have awakened their spiritual faculties and they see with the “eyes” of the soul, which is the only way to truly see the spiritual reality behind the illusion that is matter.

The Supreme Light

The Supreme Light is Spiritual Light. In some ways, it is like physical light, but in other ways, it isn’t. It cannot be seen by the physical eyes, although some sensitive people seem to be able to get glimmers of it. There are some rare individuals who can see auras around people, animals, and even plants. They think they are seeing the Supreme Light, but they are not. They are seeing a type of light that is halfway between physical and spiritual light. While this light is seen everywhere by the awakened soul, it has a source. The immediate source of this light for those of us on Earth is Sol, the sum. More specifically, the spiritual Sun. Spiritual Light can only have a spiritual source. The Ultimate Source of the Supreme Light is God. He sends his Light into the spirits of the stars and that Light is slowly transforming the fallen universe of matter back into spirit. Some question why God doesn’t transform the universe instantly. There is a two-part answer to that. One, it doesn’t give us the opportunity to transform with it. Two, time has no meaning whatsoever to God, so what may take a million years to us is an instant to God. Continue reading “Supreme Light that Dispels All Darkness”
