The Physical Trinity

January 2, 2010

Perceptively, our heart beat shifts for a poignant realization to anchor in consciousness, a noticeably stronger pulse that attracts our attention for a moment. Is it possible that an imminent burst of energy from Source or some kind of cosmic ray gun will wipe the heart-drive of incongruent belief systems?

Our movement through space into the Photon Belt precipitates a subtle rise in vibration, evidenced by a rise in the cycles per second pulse of our planet, an increase of a nearly imperceptible degree in human experience. Most humans seem to be oblivious; others sense an impending cosmic shift toward an age of enlightenment. Is there a cosmic change agent with their fingers on the volume control?

What about the various belief systems that have at their core a need to have good and evil? Is this truly a Divine characteristic or simply ignorant humans projecting their own circumstance on a divine framework so it ‘fits’ their mold. Modern theologians seem to breeze by the knowledge that ‘satan’ came from the Greek ‘thetan’ and means ‘thinker.’

As I recall, the word for ‘fallen’ was more like ‘condensed’ but the minds of the translators weren’t able to understand the concept at the time. It would seem ‘logical’ that cosmic intelligence would learn how to condense into physical form through their evolutionary process. Could we call that ‘descending’ mortals? The number of man (666) turns out to be the number of protons, electrons and neutrons in the carbon atom. How about that?

In spite of religious reluctance we are moving out of the fear, guilt and shame game and into a more holistic model. Is it too simple to believe that Lucifer (angel of light and music, by the way) was asked to take the lead in the process, being the Most High and all?

Why do we project our own problems and evilness on such a being? Is it so hard for humans to admit their own thoughts and actions are incongruent with their professed beliefs in an unconditional loving creator? Don’t forget that our translated version omits that ‘creators’ or ‘Gods’ was indeed plural in the beginning.

Omnipresent, omniscient and omnipotent lends itself to the trinity constructs. The Nag Hamadi presents the one intelligence of creation as three expressions or manifestations as I recall. Nearly every religion has an expression of a trinity. Heck, the proton, electron and neutron make up all physical material and with one exception (hydrogen) any kind of intelligent design has to be present in the material constructs. I thought about that one a long time.

A personal experience revealed yet another option, one that allows us to see the Trinity showing up as intelligently directed physical manifestations made of various configurations of the proton, neutron and electron.

Rising Out of Duality?

December 21, 2009

Let us move on to another interesting convergence toward harmony. Science and spirituality are closer to being united in ‘The Secret’ and even Oprah has released the information through national television as a possible alternative to our current consciousness and daily living practices.

Other authors have espoused such philosophies for centuries and spiritual masters’ core teachings are full of anecdotes that reveal a greater being within us all. Futurists explore how ergonomics, infrastructure and material specifications combine with energy flow and sacred geometry in developing new structures for business and community development.

Systems thinking is a corporate philosophy now. Moving beyond egocentric paradigms is quite the challenge, though. What is in it for me? After all, I am the center of my world. Change management? We still tend to see the process in a dualistic framework – magnetizing positive aspects and eliminating negative ones. Such is the path to balance and freedom…from the head to the heart.

It has long been said that this journey from head to heart is the longest one will ever make. We are thetanic (Thetan: Greek for ‘thinker’) beings by nature and yet our hearts are as pure and innocent as a child initially. Our life’s experience, rather our choices in it, dictate our reality and the experience of a lifetime. A mind aligned with and agent of the heart is most powerful.

What is the sense of panic or disconnectedness many feel and sense at times when in a change of critical path consciousness or structural design? Is it the shift in letting go of an intellectual stronghold that allows us to gently settle into the stream in our quest for ‘flow’? What is our measure? What is a man now? What is a woman now? What is a family now? What are relatives? How do we treat them? How do we best utilize recent discoveries in all the fields of future study toward a harmonic convergence of scholar and student?

The dualistic mindset is a pattern that is so deep in human consciousness there is little room to ascend the ladder to Oneness. Yet ascend we must if we are going to heal ourselves of dysfunctional and incongruent patterns of behavior that have led to human atrocities in current world activities and events. How can we move toward a better understanding of ‘what is’ without emotional projections that spin out of control?

The Tao provides at least a partial answer in the ‘what is’ notion of positive and negative forces in a constant balance. Far too often we deny feelings of malcontent simply to ‘keep the peace’ instead of creating peace by dealing with the articulation of the malcontent. What about the concept of Yin and Yang? Each is constantly spinning into the other and lines are blurred through ‘viewpoints.’  So, can we engage the gray matter in a healthy way?

It is quite revealing that a cross-section of our DNA helix viewed in black and white (light pulsing on and off) looks quite similar to the yin/yang symbol. Could this be a sign placed for our recognition, similar to the primer in the movie ‘Contact’?

We have the key to creating a union between homo and sapiens, right here on Earth. Could another similar sign, the ‘666,’ denote a scientific union… the number of man… carbon? We have all condensed into physical form to be here now, as consciousness in a body.

Yet today in many metaphysical gatherings, the ‘Ascension’ is probably the most present notion of the new millennium and the projected result of the alignment with the Galactic Center in 2012. What does that mean? To them we rise out of 3rd dimensional reality – duality of war and peace.

The Connection Conundrum

November 21, 2009

We know, or at least some have a sense, that all things are connected – a holistic model of consciousness permeates creation. Quantum sciences are pointing toward this as fact now. We still choose to separate ourselves from others today, though.

Fear is being promoted at the very top of national leadership across the world. Even when prompted to contact or communicate with another, our ‘logic’ often prohibits the interaction due to fear of misunderstanding, rejection or threat of appearing less than what we think we should.

Can we affect change where primary belief systems seem diametrically opposed? Can we offer a solution? Do we really want solutions? It has taken us centuries to arrive at the present conditions. Can or will it change in a few years? Will we rise above fear and embrace a new way?

How can we open our minds to something we’ve never experienced? What if we were able to acknowledge the obvious? Our minds and hearts are still in opposition, we fear what we do not know or have not experienced.

Oftentimes a new experience brings such a ‘rush’ of energy that we confuse it as a threat rather than a thread in the fabric of our evolution. We lock up – the fight or flight syndrome so common in psychology.

Are these our only choices? Do we have yet another choice yet unexplored? We can rise in consciousness but we actually take the mandatory rollercoaster ride to get there. It is our unconscious patterned desire for continued separation that inhibits our ability to connect, a pattern so deep and in such conflict with self/Self that wars are fought across the planet because of it.

Ancient Mayan and even Sanskrit terms in use today indicate we might want to consider some alternatives. ‘In lakesh’ (I am another you) and ‘Namasté’ (internal and external obeisance to thee) both acknowledge the oneness in self and others.

The humble bow of recognition that is part of many cultures moves us closer toward a sense of unity or at least understanding. It is more than respect. I am challenged to see and sense myself in another, even with the extensive experience and knowing of this truth and an attitude of gratitude. What about those unaware?

The Internet brings us closer in communication and yet further apart from physical communion with others. What do we really want anyway? The hot new belief system says we can attract what we want by identifying what we desire, giving it attention, and allowing it to happen.

Easier said than done, yet it warrants further consideration for sure. Implementing an action plan that creates the magnet for the desire to manifest is the key that we seem to ignore, thinking that we can defy known scientific rules: potential energy remains at rest until acted upon.

Conversely it is an obvious strain in feeling and logic to eliminate the concept of identifying what we don’t want in order to move closer to what we do. Still the objective is to create, co-create or construct new thoughtforms of a stronger magnetism that allows matter and spirit to coalesce in accordance with this new living awareness. I’ve heard it called ‘structural tension’ as an element in the creative process. How do we make the process simple?

Simplicity of being, doing and having is the goal for all spiritual seekers, allowing the greater consciousness to permeate their worlds and guide their daily movements. Simple gratification and validation is also the goal of most individuals in daily living, unconsciously desiring to love and be loved in the spirit of oneness. We talk a good line, but the result is tainted with pushing or pulling energy to move as many mountains as possible with as little effort as we can muster.

This is not to say that humans are lazy, yet they do tend to avoid the stretch to actually make things simple in their daily lives, let alone shift into a heart-centered awareness. Once a heart-centered awareness is achieved, though, the knowing moves us toward more prudent paths.

Our perceived intelligence often convinces us not to listen to the still small voice within, even after a so-called ‘spiritual awakening.’ We rarely challenge the notion of duality, yet it is the stumbling block laid before us in our quest to find balance and harmony.

Even science and religion strive to find harmony in their expressions of reality and thousands of books have been written on the subject of Unity… unified field theory to universal love, M Theory to The Masters of the Far East and much more. How can we simplify?

Would it be easier to simply look at the existing systems in our global economy, for instance, and focus on developing life-friendly processes and protocols? How can we better manage our resources, both human and material, while promoting a sense of unification without subjugation?

We are faced with choices on a moment to moment basis, pushed and pulled by this or that to make a decision about our lives, great or small. Granted some do not want to choose, they simply want to follow or be told what to do so they do not have to be accountable or responsible for their actions. It is far easier a path to be led than to lead. It is a challenge to think, let alone change.
