Unified Substance of All Beings

“The Magi in their wisdom asserted that all creatures might be brought to one unified substance, which substance they affirm may, by purifications and purgations, attain to so high a degree of subtlety, such divine nature and occult property, as to work wonderful results. For they considered that by returning to the earth, and by a supreme magical separation, a certain perfect substance would come forth, which is at length, by many industrious and prolonged preparations, exalted and raised up above the range ov vegetable substances into mineral, above mineral into metallic, and above perfect metallic substances into a perpetual and divine Quintessence, including in itself the essence of all celestial and terrestrial creatures. The Arabs and Greeks, by the occult characters and hieroglyphic descriptions of the Persians and Egyptians, attained to secret and abstruse mysteries. When these were obtained and partially understood they saw with their own eyes, in the course of experimenting, many wondrous and strange effects. But since the super-celestial operations lay more deeply hidden than their capacity could penetrate, they did not call this a super-celestial arcanum according th the institutions of the Magi, but the arcanum of the Philosopher’s Stone according to the council and judgement of Pythagoras.” ~Paracelsus

Unified Substance

It was the goal of the Magi, the Mystics, and the Spiritual Adepts of the various ancient Mystery schools and Gnostic schools to helps all of us return to a state that Paracelsus is calling “one unified substance”. Where Paracelsus goes astray is in thinking that all of this was material in nature rather than spiritual. The only “substance” that is truly unified is spirit.

Purifications and Purgations

Purification ceremonies were practices by Magi and mystics. The Essenes used ritual bathing. Others may have used steam or smoke. Today, a lot of new-age types use sage smudging for the purification of their environment and themselves.

Purgation may also have been used, but was more of a mental thing than a physical. While purging the body of some things may have been helpful, it is purging the mind of false beliefs and teachings that is important in preparing one for spiritual development.

While purifications and purgations are helpful—sometimes even necessary—for spiritual growth, they do not do the job alone. The most important thing is awakening the spirit and soul using the light of the spiritual sun. Continue reading “Unified Substance of All Beings”

Practicing Unified Field Attention

Practice Unified Field Attention

“Practicing unified field attention is a powerful way to accelerate your transformation, and seeing how nonphysical fields connect intimately with physical reality is extremely helpful. Here are a few ways you can practice unifying your two realities:

  • Treat the world as if it’s conscious. As often as possible, remember that the world is—right now, at this very minute—precipitating out of a field of consciousness-and-energy. And that living consciousness-and-energy exists through every part of it—through you and even through inanimate objects. …
  • Perceive with your whole self. It’s not just your eyes and brain that are attending to life. As often as possible, … shift to your body and cells to see what they’re noticing, then shift to your heart—or liver, or kneecap—to see what it knows. … Occasionally, stretch out and expand your sphere to take in more of the unified field. …
  • Practice the art of correlation. When you experience frustration in the outer world, for example, you always experience a matching contraction in your inner world of emotion and thought. …
  • Read your reality for deeper meaning. Practicing the art of correlation leads you to guidance. For example, in the outer reality, your car has a flat tire. In the inner world, you see the flat tire relates to your hesitation to move forward on a new project.” ~Penney Peirce

The list Ms. Peirce has provided is really more of a hierarchy with the other items all being part of treating the world as if it is conscious. When you realize that the world is conscious, animals are conscious, plants are conscious, even rocks are conscious, you can’t help but want to pay closer attention to the relationship of yourself to the rest of the world, and various forms within it. And when you realize that your own consciousness is not limited to your brain, it is only natural to take the step of trying to notice the consciousness of other parts of your body, regardless of how limited that consciousness may be.
