EVERY THING YOU EVER WANTED TO KNOW ABOUT ECKANKAR & PAUL TWITCHELL, BUT WERE AFRAID TO ASK .

Paul Twitchell , the Founder of Eckankar,  Westernized version of Sant Mat, has been fully exposed to curious Mystics who have asked the wrong people about the whos, whys and whats, regarding this Light & Sound religeon that Paul Twitchell compiled from all of his former experiences, and marketed to the West.

A loyal friend of mine, has diligently put together his Labor of Love that has taken him decades to sort out. I highly recommend his researched Documentation regarding Eckankar over all other writers   Offering their "opinions" on a subject that my Friend has expertise in, from the inside out.

Soul Convicts Wanted, .....Dead or Alive!

My Soul is an Escaped spirit who has wandered away from Spiritual Home, to become WANTED: Dead or ALIVE,by either the god of materialism, …or the Cosmic Creator of ALL Universes. !

I was once a spirit,….fully alive,…Eternally,  that for reasons forgotten, decided to venture away from the Home of The Living to explore the land of the dead. I only intended to go for a brief visit, to have a few material adventures, but now have been gone so long, I have forgotten my way back to the home I once left.

As the Eternal spirit I was, I projected in to matter and became a soul, once I was joined to my physical container I now call the body I am able to see in a mirror. But once joined to this body , my spirit has bonded to this body, and has become the soul that has been shaped by the mind that has taken the soul prisoner, and projects me, as a mind trained soul, out into the material world of existence, through the sense gates of my prison ward I call my body. My spirit that was alive before becoming soul, now is asleep in slumber, and is in  hibernation until either the body expires, releasing the knotted mind/soul back to the spirit realms, or,…..until the longing of the spirit to return to the forgotten Home I once left wakes up from slumber, and seeks for a Source of Assistance to commence the Journey of souls to return to the Home all incarnated spirits once left to seek material adventures.

 Before I left home, my Instructions were to stay in full contact with my Spiritual Over Seer once I became a soul. Had I obeyed, I would have remained a living spirit attached to a material body that became a living soul, how ever, I instantly became enticed by the 


physical senses that drew my soul out of my body through one or more of the nine sense gates, where my training to become dead to the spirit world rapidly began. The more material adventures I explored, the deader to the spirit world I became. The tighter my soul became knotted to the mind that kept increasing in material knowledge, with experience, the deeper my  Eternal spirit went into hibernation giving over its Authority to the knotted mind/soul, and has lost contact with the Spiritual Realm of Souls all together.

The Divine Plan was, the spirit was to become a living soul, teaching the mind to become a Spiritual Teacher to lost souls, by taking Instructions from the Spiritual Over Seer, not from the material god of this world received through the nine sense gates of the body that entices the knotted mind/soul to become educated to the ways of the world.


I know I am human, because, unlike the  lower species, I know and recognize I am conscious. Consciousness is defined as many ideas, and numerous papers have been written defining consciousness as per the writer’s perception. But for me, I like to think I am conscious, as a soul, because of my individual awareness as well as my unique thoughts, memories, feelings, sensations, and environment, as witnessed by my writing this Article.

I know I am not just a clone, or an identical thought form, wherever I came from, because I have yet to ever meet another human being that agrees with much of what I have tried to share since I started trying to share any thing I have been taught as Truth. It appears each of the 7 billion humans on planet earth have their own truths, and also seem to be hard
wired in their brains to try and download their beliefs and thought forms into any othesr they interact with. 

So, what chance does a projected spirit who has projected into an average human body like mine, and has become entrenched in to a Biological Prison  that has 10 to the 13th power average cells, or 10,000,000,000,000 average cells spread out all over my body from the top of my head to the tip of my toes, have of ever being able to escape back into the Spiritual Realm that I once left?

Even if my physical body expires, which it will, as all physical material is impermanent, including my present old ageing body ( now 2 months short of 73 ) will my knotted mind/soul instantly release my Eternal spirit and free it from bondage from each of the possible material realms? Metaphysically, depending on which School of Thought one chooses to adopt,  there may be numerous material/spiritual realms or planes of existence, that are linked to the physical body while the body is alive, but once that body expires, each surviving plane connected to that body, also has its own time limitation to remain alive in that particular realm, that still has the Eternal spirit held hostage by the knotted mind/soul until EACH surviving realm also expires, which means that each has an allotted time factor, which might be unknown to my unawakened ( or the reader’s ) spirit.

With out delving into Metaphysics, Biology explaining DNA. or the unending Religions, Fraternities, Sects, etc. etc., which may be seen all over the Internet, as well as more books than can be read in millions of life times, ( assuming one subscribes to the teachings of Reincarnation and Karma, as I do ), I once decided to use my own body, as a spiritual laboratory, or Temple of my soul, to experiment with different spiritual exercises, using my body as a Spiritual University, so to speak. I obviously have not yet graduated from my University, because I am still here sharing a little of what I feel like sharing, with out acting as just another Dominant Alpha Male trying to corral the other 6.99 billion opposing souls on earth  into doing what I do, to become liberated from the Prisons of the soul. 

But, in simple Laymen’s terms, imagine how the tiny Point of Light that my spirit was that entered the body that has become my prison, when the first Breath of Life was Breathed into my body at birth, and I became a Living Soul. Immediately, this tiny spirit 0f Light started down loading into every available cell in my tiny infant body, and my life journey, this incarnation began!

Well, what can I saw, ….other than, its been an interesting ride, surely different than any other human presently on earth, due to our differences in life experiences.

But, the interesting thing to consider, is we ALL arrived here, and took birth in our individual respective bodies the same way. ( unless Aliens are reading this? ) We ALL became prisoners of our body/mind/souls the same way! Why? Because we all have the same human organs, with biological cells, etc.

So, we all have an opportunity to enroll in our own Spiritual University to experiment with our own spiritual exercises while we still retain human Temples to seek our Spiritual Over Seer, in order to try and hook up with. If we fail to make the connection here, in the physical body, then, we must reincarnate again, and again, and again, until we are successful. Not a good choice,….if one has decided they have had enough of this form of life, on planet earth, and seek to ascend to higher or more Spiritual, and less material realms, or planets, where wars, killing, exploiting and eating lower species, along with all the other horrors of what we spirit prisoners have been seduced in  to accepting as normal.

This Article is not intended as a Discourse or Lesson on how to become enlightened, as many Religions and Sects already  teach, but only as a reminder that we, as spirits, are not who most of us think we are, or have recognized our selves to become, in these bodies.

If a fragment of my spirit consciousness is in one of the cells in my big toe, I need to figure out some way to entice it to vacate that cell and to travel up to the top of my head, where it may be allowed to escape the prison of the body, and start the Journey of souls back to the home I once left. Now, imagine, not only do I need to vacate that big toe cell, but the rest of the 10 to the 13th power of remaining cells in the body as well, in order to travel the spirit world!

The above is only an Appetizer, that might serve to activate the Reader’s Spiritual thirst, to desire to seek further ways to become liberated, from the Prison of souls to return to the Home we all left as Living spirits, Eternal Ageless, individual spirits, reunited with our Spiritual Creator.

Reading other Articles on my blog may offer helpful hints, at different possibilities of escape.

Until we meet again, I remain,
Eternal Flame

WAS JESUS A VEGETARIAN?

The following is "food for thought",.....Pun intended. The thoughts are taken from a RSSB Sant Mat book, of the Radha Swami faith. It may be Copyrighted, but as an Initiate, I like what the contents share, so think I want the information on my blog for future Seekers to also be able to consider.

In practice, many people who find themselves seeking spirituality slowly come to a realization that they no longer wish to eat the flesh of dead animals. It no longer agrees with them, in one way or another. As their own awareness, love, compassion and sensitivity increases, they automatically find themselves drawing away from the consumption of meat. Then, as they do so, they experience the benefit in terms of a greater lightness of heart and inner peacefulness, and sooner or later they are naturally inclined to take a clear decision to become strictly vegetarian. If they are lucky enough to meet a perfect Master, he will certainly insist that they become so if they wish to receive initiation
into his fold.
 
Was Jesus Vegetarian?

From a careful study of Jesus' teachings, it is quite evident that he taught the law of recompense for sins. And if he also taught reincarnation as so many of the more mystically-minded, early Christians believed, he would certainly have been vegetarian and have taught vegetarianism to his disciples. What is also clear is that he was of such a kind, loving, forgiving, merciful and compassionate disposition that it is difficult to imagine him even hurting another creature, let alone placing it upon his plate and eating it.

Jesus' philosophy of non-violence was as far advanced as that of any other teacher of this subject, probably all of whom have also been vegetarian. How can one who advises turning the other cheek, giving your cloak to one who has already taken your coat and walking two miles with one who has already coerced you into going one mile with them, be thought to have happily eaten up the bodies of slaughtered animals? How can one who is so far removed from thoughts of violence and revenge that he recommends extending unlimited forgiveness to others, advises loving your enemies and doing good to those who treat you badly, have been expected to have condoned the killing of other creatures for his food?

Jesus also reiterated the commandment attributed to Moses, "thou shalt not kill",' as we find it in the King James Version of Mark and Luke.' In many modern translations, however, the key word has bee changed to "murder" in both the Old and New Testaments, though the meaning in Deuteronomy is ambiguous and could mean either or both `Murder' implies only human beings, `killing' refers to all life, and the translators must have been aware of the implications of their change

But there is another passage amongst the books attributed to Moses this time in Genesis, where the meaning is stated clearly:

There is no doubt about the vegetarianism inherent in this piece advice. So although the provenance of these Biblical writings is large a mystery and their meaning often obscure and allegorical, this passage at least is clear enough and applicable to all human beings in ages and cultures. This is one of the reasons why Jesus said:

Jesus, who spoke so definitively about the hypocrisy of the Pharisee and Jewish priests, is hardly likely to have behaved hypocritically him self. How, then, can he be expected to have killed for his food? Can one imagine Jesus with a gun, a knife or a sword, or going out a; hunter or a butcher? The picture is quite inconsistent with everything else he taught.

So although there is no explicit quotation from Jesus recorded the gospels on the subject, the evidence of the remainder of his teacher alone is more than suggestive. It would have been most inconsistent of him if he had not abstained from killing animals and eating meat.

And God said,

"Behold, I have given you every herb bearing seed,

which is upon the face of all the earth,

and every tree,

in the which is the fruit of a tree yielding seed; To you it shall be for meat."

Genesis 1:29, KJV

Did not Moses give you the law,

and yet none of you keepeth the law?

John 7:20

After all, bearing in mind the approach of the orthodox Christian authorities as well as the attitude of the Roman emperors who adopted Christianity, would one really expect any references to vegetarianism to be present in the canonical gospels? They had three or four hundred years and ample opportunity to adjust any `difficult' passages to their own liking. And since everyone in those days changed texts to fit their own beliefs, they could so easily have justified their editorial excursions in the name of `correcting earlier errors'.

Those of rigid, hardhearted, angry and aggressive - even violent - character, as many of the orthodox authorities seem to have been, are hardly likely to have entertained vegetarian leanings. Such people like their food and drink and will go to all lengths to substantiate their position in order to continue in the way they always have done. This is the nature of the human mind. The response and reaction come from a deeply subconscious place to preserve and enforce one's own personal beliefs. So if in the face of Jesus' teachings to the contrary - they could condone causing misery and hardship, even exile, torture and death, to their fellow human beings, they are hardly likely to notice a discrepancy between their killing of animals for food and Jesus' teachings of love and compassion. Nor would they feel any twinges of conscience in adjusting Jesus' teachings to suit themselves. Like the Pharisees and Jewish priests before them, they were already too far away from the teachings they professed to follow.
 
Locusts and Wild Honey

Definitive records of Jesus as a vegetarian may be absent, but with his predecessor, John the Baptist, the case is somewhat different. As we have them now, the gospel texts vary. John's gospel makes no mention of the matter at all. Matthew follows Mark, speaking of "locusts and wild honey":

John had his raiment of camel's hair, and a leathern girdle about his loins; and his meat was locusts and wild honey.

Matthew 3:4
And:

John was clothed with camel's hair, and with a girdle of a skin about his loins; and he did eat locusts and wild honey.

Mark 1:6

While Luke makes no mention of John the Baptist's food, but does introduce an angel who declares that John will abstain from all alcoholic drinks:

He shall be great in the sight of the Lord, and shall drink neither wine nor strong drink; and he shall be filled with the Holy Ghost, even from his mother's womb.

Luke 1:15

It is generally reckoned that Luke is referring to the Nazirite vow, an ancient Jewish rule of asceticism, described in the book of Numbers,; which specifically mentions abstention from "wine and strong drink" and who Epiphanius tells us also "forbid all flesh-eating and do not eat living things at all':` Luke, however, in seeming to designate John the Baptist as a Nazirite, may only have been jumping to conclusions based upon the popular stories that had grown up regarding John's dietary habits.

Locusts, one might observe, are not vegetarian food and advocates of vegetarianism have tried to explain the term away by various means. Some say that it referred to the evergreen locust tree or carob (Ceratonia siliqua), so called because its pods, often curved, resemble locusts. The tree is widely distributed from Spain to the eastern Mediterranean regions where its flat, leathery pods, three to twelve inches long, with their sweet pulpy interior (they contain about 50% sugar) are eaten by animals and also by man, in times of scarcity. Traditionally, the tree has also been called `St John's Bread; indicating how widespread was the belief that John the Baptist's diet did indeed include the pods of the locust tree rather than insects. In all probability, it is also the pods of this tree which are referred to in Luke's parable of the prodigal son as the "husks that the swine did eat”

Incidentally, in North America, the locust tree is the common name given to any tree of about twenty native American species belonging to the genus Robinia, such as the well-known black locust (Robinia pseudoacacia), introduced into Europe in 1636. The carob and the North American species are different, but related, both being leguminous.

One group of early Christians in Palestine, the Ebionites, who were undoubtedly vegetarian, claimed that the correct Greek word was not locust (akris) at all, but enkris (cake) and it would certainly have been easy enough for such a mistake to have occurred during the transmission of early manuscripts. But whether or not the "locusts" were carob

The Ebionites and another closely allied group, the Nazoraeans, had their own gospels, neither of which have survived in anything other than brief quotes and citations amongst the writings of the Church fathers. The Gospel o f the Ebionites was probably a `harmony' or a synthesis, in Greek, of the canonical gospels, but we are solely dependent upon Epiphanius for the few extant references. The Gospel of the Nuzoraeans is usually said to have been a translation into Aramaic or Hebrew from the Greek of Matthew, with considerable expansion, but again very little remains and that only in citations by Jerome, Eusebius and Origen. The position is further confused by Irenaeus (120­202, fl. 178-185) who speaks of the Gospel of the Ebionites as a version of Matthew.

Their interest to us in the present context is that, according to Epiphanius, the Ebionites believed that both John the Baptist and Jesus' had been vegetarian, and their Gospel of the Ebionites reflects this. Regarding John, Epiphanius quotes

It came to pass that John was baptizing; and there went out to him Pharisees and were baptized, and all Jerusalem. And John had a garment of camel's hair and a leathers girdle about his loins, and his food was wild honey, the taste of which was that of manna, as a cake dipped in oil.

Gospel of the Ebionites, in Epiphanius, Panarion 30:13.4, NlA l p. 157

And the reference to Jesus comes where Jesus declines to eat the Passover meal with his disciples, though this, as well as the excerpt concerning John the Baptist, probably only reflect the fact that the Ebionites were vegetarian and had modified or written their version of the gospel according to their own beliefs, as did all the other groups at that time. What is of more interest is how this group of early Christians came to be traditionally vegetarian and why they thought that Jesus and John the Baptist had been so, too.

Outside the gospels, information on John the Baptist is scarce, but in the Slavonic edition of the Jewish War, evidently writing from popular hearsay and legend, Josephus relates:

At that time there was a man going about Judaea remarkably dressed: he wore an animal hair (garment) upon those parts of his body not covered by his own. His face was like a savage's. He called on the Jews to claim their freedom, crying, "God sent me to show you the way of the Law, so that you can shake off any human yoke: no man shall rule you, but only the Most High who sent me."

His message was eagerly welcomed and was followed by all Judaea and the district around Jerusalem. All he did was to baptize them in the Jordan and dismiss them with an earnest exhortation to abandon their evil ways: if they did so they would be given a king who would liberate them and master the unruly, while he himself acknowledging no master. Then his promise was derided by some but believed by others.

The man was brought before Archelaus and an assemblage of lawyers, who asked who he was and where he had been. He replied: "I am a man called by the Spirit of God, and I live on stems, roots and fruit."

Josephus, Jewish War (Slavonic), JWF p.404
And:

He was a strange creature, not like a man at all. He lived like a disembodied spirit. He never touched bread.... Wine and other strong drink he would not allow to be brought anywhere near him, and animal food he absolutely refused. - fruit was all that he needed. The whole object of his life was to show evil in its true colours.

Josephus, Jewish 41'ar (Slavonic), JWF p.405

It is uncertain whether these passages in the Slavonic Jewish War - which do not occur in other versions - can be really be attributed to Josephus. But even if they were penned by some other hand and even if the details are somewhat fanciful and inaccurate, they still indicate that the traditional, non-orthodox account of John the Baptist had him as a vegetarian and teetotaller. And if John really was the Master of Jesus, then - considering the high esteem in which Jesus held John - it would be reasonable to suppose that Jesus followed his Master's example and was both vegetarian and teetotal, too.

Wine and Strong Drink

As with abstention from eating meat, there is no direct evidence that Jesus drank no alcohol. But anyone who has ever struggled sincerely with concentrated prayer or spiritual practice of any kind knows that the effect of alcohol or of any mind-affecting substance, legal or illegal, is to seriously disturb concentration. Such substances decrease

He confesses Christ by name, if you please, and says "Christ is king':... He bans burnt offerings and sacrifices, as something foreign to God and never offered to Him on the authority of the fathers and the (Judaic) law, and ... he rejects the Jewish custom of eating meat.

Epiphanies, Panarion I.-L19.3, PES p.46

In fact, from a variety of ancient and reputable sources, such as Philo,14 Josephus15 and Jerome, we learn that other sects of a similar character, including the Essenes of Palestine and the Therapeutae of Egypt, were all vegetarian. It seems to have been characteristic of the esoteric groups of those times - Christian or Judaic. It was also the accepted practice amongst Hellenistic esoteric groups such as the Pythagoreans16 and was attributed to other Greek philosophers and mystics who had also taught transmigration of the soul, such as Empedocles" (c.490­430 BC). Indeed, it has always been the case that those following a spiritual or mystic path have either been strictly vegetarian or have had leanings in that direction. It is still true, even in modern times.

The vegetarianism of the Ebionites and the "Nazoraeans" or "Nazarenes"18 is significant for these groups date back to the time of Jesus. Jesus himself was called the Nazoraean19 and in Acts, Paul was described as a "ring-leader of the sect of the Nazarenes" ;20 though the teachings that he took into the wider Roman Empire differed sig­nificantly from those of the Judaic Nazoraeans. Being descended from the direct disciples of Jesus who had lived in Palestine and the neighbouring area, the traditions they preserved are far more likely to reflect Jesus' real teachings than the groups that formed through the evangelical activities of Paul. The fact that the earliest Christians, directly descended from the time of Jesus, abstained from meat and alcohol is therefore a powerful testimony to Jesus having followed the same practice, for human nature being as it is, the general trend is to drop such restrictions as time passes, not to add them.

JOURNEY of SOULS: SPIRITUAL REALM CHARTS of VARIOUS PHILOSOPHIES and RELIGEONS.

 

SPIRITUAL PLANES CHARTS

The Apostle Paul, once was quoted to have said, in the New Testament, "Absent from the body,....present with The Lord." Paul's understanding of who he was, or who or what, was in his body or out, might not be as simple as he thought, or as present Church pew warmers imagine. The spirit which incarnates into a human body might have interesting travels from the womb to the tomb, depending on what one chooses to believe. This post shares only a few of the various Spiritual Planes Charts I have borrowed from different Internet sites. These Charts might allow a seeker a visual lesson how a simple spirit, which incarnates into a material body, moves through the various planes of growth, from the fetus be born, live, and die again, on its Journey back to the Home it once left.

CONDOMS of the SOUL: PERISPIRIT/ASTRAL BODY

Prophylactics are used by humans to prevent the spread of physical diseases, where by Perispirits are used by souls who reincarnate into material bodies to experience life as humans, or to participate in the Play of Consciousness, in The Creator's  School House, with out becoming permanently bound to any material body by karmic diseases enticing incarnated spirits. 

According to Spiritist teachings introduced to the late Allan Kardec by spirits, a Perispirit " is the link which unites the soul and the body. It is semi-material--that is to say, of a nature intermediate between soul and body, as it must be in order that they may be able to communicate with each other. The soul is an incarnated  spirit, where the soul was a spirit before being incarnated, or while out of a material body.       

The spirits are protected by Perispirits while in the body as souls! " page 108 of The Spirits' Book, linked on this blog as a free download. Since The Spirits' Book was written in the early 1800s, Astral Bodies, as introduced by Theosophy was not yet known by Kardec, and Perispirits were what dis incarnated spirits channeled by Mediums conveyed to Allan Kardec during his interviews with various spirits using hundreds of Psychic Mediums to answer Kardec's metaphysical questions.

Of course, since the Internet has been available to all who care to research such Metaphysical Philosophies such as the relationship between the spirit and the body, there is an abundance of available Literature to either read on line, or to download, or purchase  as published books. There are also many blogs, such as mine that you are presently reading, that offer unending critiques of each other's opinions of present or past Author's  writings. I don't want to even begin to venture into quoting other writers, because there are too many that could fill volumes and volumes of web pages that are already there, which  may be accessed by key boarding in a single word and then searching, on Google or Yahoo. Wikapedia usually has the most extensive references, and the word "perispirit" may educate any wanting more information on what I coined " spirit condoms of the soul. 

The Internet also offers many Spiritual Planes Charts, showing various levels of how the Eternal soul interfaces with material bodies, some showing as many as 18 different levels or spiritual planes that the Eternal soul descends, from Source, through all the lower levels finally incarnating into material bodies. 

Then, since birth into a material body  becomes the temporary  death of spirit, or the terminal disease of materialism, since all materialism is impermanent, the incarnated soul must ascend  upwards or back out through all the spiritual planes or realms to return home where it once left, when it was initially created by our Creator. 

These Charts may be accessed by running search words such as Sant Mat, Radhasoami, Eckankar, Theosophy, Rosicrucians, Martinists, etc. etc. The Agra Sect of Radhasoami Sect has the 18 levels of soul sheaths, resembling a seed in the core of an onion.  As the soul ascends from the core of its sheaths, rising through each spiritual plane, the amount of residual materialism decreases in each Plane, as the spiritual portion of the spirit increases.

The purpose of this note is not to educate the reader to each different sect, but to introduce one to the idea of how souls animate individual material bodies. 

One blog is the home of  a Mystic who teaches that souls never reincarnate into new bodies once the body dies, but only Holographic projections of fragmented past life spiritual DNAs enter each new births by the interaction of male sperm penetrating the female ovum in the womb. forming the fetus, that allows the spiritual DNA of a fragmented past life projected from one of the many Mansions of the Beings of Light. Each  Mansion, or Being of Light may encompass up to 144,000 possible fragmented past life spirits that failed to become acquainted with their own Soul-Self Being of Light. According to the Mystic, these past life failed spirits residing in each individual Mansion may be consulted by the Holographic projected spiritual DNA incarnated as present souls, by becoming complete, or whole, by following what the historical man, Jesus, taught his disciples practicing TheWay. Very confusing, and difficult for entry level spiritual seekers to understand, so, I will not continue to confuse, should the reader be interested in researching some of these interesting Web sites of blog, just run a search on the Long Island Mystic, and have a feast of more web pages of teachings than one could read in several life times,.....because this mystic claims to be the brother of Jesus, i.e. James, who walked and talked with Jesus, and has been writing Scripture since any was written! I know. Sounds insane, or heretical, but before the reader writes it off as insanity before reading even a sample of what the Mystic writes, one would be missing a very unusual opportunity!  Enough said. Except, even more interesting is, the core members of his blog claim to also be reincarnated spiritual fragments of DNAs that incarnated with this Mystic during many of his past lives. It's a spiritual   jungle in Cyber Space, so let the Buyer Beware! "Caveat Emptor!"

Until we meet again, I remain,

SOUND from THE LIGHT: CALLING ALL SOULS!!

RETURN!! To the HOME WE ALL LEFT!

Attention, lost souls! AWAKEN from slumber. You have been locked in your prison of organic flesh,  blood and bones long enough!

Your Savior is sounding the Trumpet. Listen closely! Your Savior is your Master within. Your Inner Master is your Higher Self. Your Higher Self, has fallen, descended from the Eternal Home of Over souls, and has since thought itself awake, when it, you, we, have actually been asleep to the Spiritual Realm, or DEAD, while "thinking" we are alive. WE all have been fooled! WE all took the bait of an impostor, believing a lie of deceit.

We have all been fooled, and our play of consciousness has been used by the Grand Puppeteer to trap us in organic materialism. But, the Call is now Sounding. Arise and become free from the prison of souls that have fallen from Grace.

The Path of return to The Cosmic Home we once left is not easy, but is possible, as long as knowledge of the organic locks on the prison doors are opened with the correct keys.

Come, Dear souls. Follow The Savior through the illusion of permanence, when the Truth is, that ALL materialism is impermanent!

Our Journey begins. The Sense Gates of the prison are being opened, one by one, with the keys that open them. 

EYES: Seeing is the most sensitive physical sense to all the external vibrations of souls. It allows humans to realize rates of vibrations which may be measured in musical octaves, color, chemical. Light, measured in Vibrations per second, is the highest form of energy that may be recognized to the natural physical senses of humans.  Focus on the Light within.

HEARING: Ears. Listen for the Sound of CHRIST, the LOGOS. The initial Sound will be heard by the INNER Ear as a Ringing Radiance, or continuous buzzing of bees, and may be found in the Musical Scale of "D" in the 1st Octave at 144 Vibrations per second! It may be recognized as the AUM or OM of Eastern religions, but is actually the Sound of Christ, the RHEMA, of Sound. Rhema is the Greek word meaning Sound of the Cosmic. All humans hear it, ringing continuously, but until the Ear Gate is opened by the Savior, silence is blocking the Sound of Christ. The range of the human outer ear to hear sound is between 15-16 thousand vibrations per second. so, when we can't touch, Sound is the next sense Gate that baits the lost soul trying to hold it in outer illusion. "Faith comes by HEARING ( Rhema), and HEARING, by The WORD of God."

SMELLING: Nose sense Gate some times is confused for taste. Souls are enticed to visit the outer world of illusion by the inviting odors.

TASTING: The Mouth sense gate entraps lost souls to become addicted to food, drink, and is a hard habit to break, considering that food and drink are fuels of energy for the organic prison to be sustained.  

FEELING: Touch Sense Gate is the least sensitive of the 5 senses, but it is possible to feel and hear Vibrations at the same time. Touch may be measured in Vibrations per second as well, by Musicians knowledgeable of the music scales.

All 5 Sense Gates are controlled by the Spinal Nervous Systems in the organic body, likened to an electrical system spread out through the entire body. The nerves in the Nervous system respond to vibrations of certain frequencies only. All the physical senses are connected to the nervous system, and impulses sent to the brain, which controls the Objective mind.

The lost souls are controlled further in the body by the Objective Consciousness, which is the faculty of realization of sense perceptions. All the impressions of the 5 sense gates are transferred by Objective consciousness to sensations.

The Subjective  mind controls concepts, functions of will, imagination, reason, recollection and memory, so is directly related to the objective mind.

The Objective Mind in man is the Director of voluntary functioning of the body and is the intelligence of the brain.

Subjective Mind controls Imagination, Will, Habit, Reasoning, Memory,  so is acting as the Prison Warden of the trapped soul.

The lost soul MUST rise from the Minds controlling all physical senses, freeing itself from the whole stream of consciousness that is the border line of where the subjective mind merges into deeper levels of consciousness.

The Levels of consciousness controlling complete memory, emotions, instincts, are the impelling urges and impulses that are products of the Vital Life Force in organic humans.

All lost souls must escape all of the mentioned sensory perceptions of the body and return to the Cosmic Vital Life Force which permeates the organic being of humans.

So, Dear Lost Souls, the reason we all need the SAVIOUR to free us from these organic prisons, is, the lost soul is a projection from the Master Over Soul, who is sounding the Trumpet, and Calling all lost souls to return to the Home we all left!

LISTEN for the Call of your Inner Master, which is your Higher Self. Your Master has been watching over you since the very first second you took birth as a human, when the first breath was breathed into you by the Cosmic Creator. Your Inner Master now has orders from the LOGOS to awaken you from the dead, where all slumbering lost souls deceived into the Play of Consciousness squander their inheritance of Royalty while playing the role of Prodigal Sons separated from the Loving Father of all souls.

The Call will be heard as a Still Small Voice from within, and will never be found any where in the outside, where the 5 senses have tricked the mind knotted with the lost soul to explore and become enticed by the illusions of materialism, which is all smoke and mirrors, or impermanence!

You will know you have been awakened from slumber, as soon as you recognize that YOU, lost soul, are the Observer, and can never become the observed, because it is your own Higher Self, or Inner Master who is observing, and has observed all that you are or will become!

LIGHT to the Eyes, and SOUND to the ears, ........to those souls who have ears to hear, and eyes to see.

Until we meet again, I remain,
Eternal Flame

OCCULT INITIATION from SPIRIT to CONSCIOUSNESS  with out HOLY BOOKS

  We are here, ( in the Earth Light Zone, having left the Twilight Zone ) where ever we happen to be, at this very moment, imagining how our lives might be different, had we departed our place in the Spirit world, entered a womb, bonded with a fetus, and matured to being delivered into our present material bodies into this world of ,.....confusion.

Were we born with any particular Holy Book, or Scripture, or Owner's Manual hanging around our necks, instructing our parents how to care for us, or what we needed in order to reach self sufficiency and to be able to take care of our selves?

Imagine, that we arrived here, in our present material environment, that there had never been a single Holy Book written, not a single past human that had ever shared any religious or occult, or esoteric information with any human up to now!

We would have to decide on our own, all the mysteries of birth, life, death, and survival from the womb to the tomb. Could we do it, and remain human? Would society be better, or worse, with out all the religions, denominations, secret mystery schools, sects, with all the names we have become familiar with, and most of us have chosen to join one or more, and to become involved by either being followers, or leaders?

But, again, what if no Holy Books of instructions penned by inspired past humans had ever been written?
The only instructions we would be able to learn from, would be given to us orally, and by Teachers who we would choose to listen to, and we would be able to gauge what they told us by their actions! In other words, we could witness if they walked their talk, or talked their walk, or did they prefer to teach others, or us, to  "do what we say, not what we do!"

But, considering that no Holy Books had ever been written by any past teachers, we would need to be taught by any one we chose as our teachers, by witnessing how they lived, how they treated their family and others, and we would be able to know most aspects of their lives, if we chose to follow in their foot steps, if we wanted to live as they do.

Now, considering the above, so far, are there ANY such individuals, who YOU would choose to follow and become a disciple of, by knowing that particular teacher or leader had never read a single holy book, or had ever been taught by any past leader that had read any such holy book of instructions, or had never been initiated into any secret society, fraternity, club, other than Consciousness, in the material body, having arrived from some mysterious place outside our present bodies?

That is exactly how our early human ancestors arrived in human bodies on planet earth, from where ever they came from. They arrived here with out Holy Books hanging around their necks, or written any where on their anatomy!

But, ....they all arrived with software that had to be down loaded into their hardware, and once the software packages were down loaded, and run through their planet earth Anti-Malware Virus programs, ( All Holy Books of instructions had been deleted from memory) they would need to OK new additions of software into their ( our) hardware, from then on!

Once we were on our own, and had graduated our parent guardian's care, we would need to choose our own ways to live in human society, that had grown to present from the beginning, with out any participant ever having access to, or having read a single holy book of religious instructions or myths.

We then would have to choose our own medicine or poison! WE would be constantly flooded with decisions of either rejecting, or accepting habits that our family, friends, and peers have already made part of their lives! And, we would be able to actually SEE and WITNESS the lives of those that we chose to participate, or reject in their habits or medicines.

Consider how our present lives might be different than they are presently, considering what we were spoon fed and forced to believe by our parents, teachers, gurus, priests, ministers, clergy, nuns, shamans, occultists, magicians, ....deceivers, heretics, and the list could be never ending.

I do not want to name any sect, but running searches on Google of denominations, religions, secret societies, etc, would take many life times just to wade through the basics of a few of them! Wikipedia could keep one busy reading an entire life time, alone!

But, our ancestors did not have Google, nor the Internet, and they relied on holy books, written by people we could not witness in action. Consider, further, any original thoughts written could have been changed, with other additional thoughts either added or deleted to suit their purposes of the times, by editors, scribes, etc. as well as translated from language to language, where many original thoughts were lost in translation. Our earliest ancestors arrived here with only their spiritual software, and survived. Could we now also survive, if we had to, and if so, would we be better or worse as humans?

Of course, we would need to include philosophy, and philosophers, in the same examples, because they are only another branch of non-religious religion, as well as Atheism, Deism, Occultism, Mysticism, Charletism, or any Isms!

We each would need to be led by only what our inherited software we arrived here with, and was installed in our hardware, ( brains) instructed us about how to live! But, considering all the present holy books haven been downloaded into our hardware, ( brains), our hardware has been turned into mushware!

Then, we would all be asked to consider accepting or rejecting opportunities in material life such as:

Diets: what should we eat, that would be the healthiest for nourishing our bodies, while doing the least damage to the planet earth, or taking life from other lower species?

Medicines: Would we participate or reject alcohol, tobacco, any kind of addictive drugs, or natural herbs?

Considering, none of us had ever seen or heard about any 10 Commandments, or any other "Thou shalt nots" from any prior holy books, we would need to make our own decisions based on what our elders shared with us, or told us, but we would be able to WITNESS what effect our elders choices had or was having on them!

Would we participate in war, if called to kill other human beings?

With out listing wrongs or rights, we each would be held responsible to either participate or reject, each opportunity for either further progression, or suppression of our individual spirit/souls,.....if we had implanted software that even registered such ideas.

The above is only food for thought, if we decide we might like to take personal inventories of our present implanted moral values.

How ever we arrived here, or Who or What ever sent us here,....will remain a mystery,. ....until we graduate these present earth suits.

Until we meet again, I remain,..

REINCARNATION Vs RESURRECTION: Skeptic, Pragmatist, Atheist, or Mystic?


None of us can ever know for certain if We will return here in a brand new incarnated material body, a latest Model of ourselves. Possibly even as the opposite gender we left in, or if our same old body will be resurrected to live again. Will the witnesses watch with surprise, as the remains of our rotting corpses in the grave crawls out of the Vault after upsetting the grave stone on top of the scraggy grass, or winter snows? Or will our ashes and remaining bone fragments that were cremated and poured into an copper urn magically take their original shape and features as if a Genie floating out of the top of a bottle? For if we are to return here to planet Earth materially and physically then our beliefs are unable to interfere with what will occur! This is a very controversial and convoluted subject to discuss. Be it openly among friends and family or let alone strangers, religious people, Agnostics, Atheists, Philosophers or with Mystics! And so may Fundamentalist Bible Believers Beware! Closed minds are unable to accept such discussions easily. Save yourself and exit now to read no further! Each to their own, is the easy way to avoid challenging belief systems or non-belief, whatever that might be, or be not! For myself, I want to at least set the record straight and to be fair to all. Instead of remaining the hypocrite I was for way too many years, saying one thing and yet secretly believing something else entirely! I mention on my blog and elsewhere, that I am a firm believer in the possibility of Reincarnation of Soul, and My own especially. Because mine is the only Soul I have any control over or interest in.


Other terminologies for the word Reincarnation from the past are: Pre-existence of the Soul (Origen), Metempsychosis (Plato), Nature of the Soul (Socrates), and Transmigration of the Soul (Eastern/Hindu Religion). I could choose to quote from the massive library stores of the many books available, as well as many past and present Celebrities and Philosophers, and from Theologians and Mystics who favor the ideal possibility of Reincarnation of Soul.

Of course there are also many and varied methodologies offered up about Reincarnation, such as "what" part of "us" does reincarnate, and IF it is, after all is said and done, even Real. The Rosicrucian teachings I studied for about 10 years do have a reasonably coherent teaching about what part of our Soul does reincarnate, along with the teachings of some Spiritualist groups.

Unbeknownst to most Homosexuals and Lesbians, I can say they were born that way after all. They didn’t suddenly "become" Gay overnight! The most likely case is a case of a slower transition from the opposite gender in their immediate past life, or even a hangover of other lives more distant. (This aspect could be another complete Article in itself worthy of future consideration on these pages.) So without quoting others here or plagiarizing any particular text past or present, the Author wishes to especially mention why Reincarnation makes the most common sense to me. Should there be any Life after Death, Eternal Life, or a continuance of our Human Consciousness once our present material bodies are pronounced dead by the Coroner, then it appears self-evident to me as the most critically important topic to engage with and not leave on the shelf to ignore or avoid. As for the resurrection of dead corpses or ash remains, of Mummies wrapped in rolls of cloth with their internal organs removed and stored in clay vessels, and more recently the Cryogenic human remains kept in tanks frozen of Nitrogen, well. Admitting that I can no longer accept that I will ever come back here, in the very same but repaired body with same features, I willing accept this labels me as a heretic Christian according to Fundamentalist Christian Dogmatists!.


This is fine because that disputed Label I have worn for many years now as it is. In fact, I have worn the label since back in 1984 when I finished my Doctoral Thesis (Th.D.) at the Christian Seminary! To earn a Doctoral Degree in any subject, one is introduced to literature and information that the normal Christian layman would never get to look at. This is because of past conditioning of the history by Fundamental Christianity since the Fifth General Council was convened by Justinian in 553 C.E.
Origin's "Pre-existence of the Soul" was stricken from the ‘sacred’ records at this event and the new compilations of the Holy Bibles were declared Canon Law by the Bishops. But the doctrine of reincarnation , regardless who had believed in the possibly and taught such to others including Jesus of Nazareth himself, was no longer to be taught in the Christian Church under pain of excommunication and possibly death. As a genuine Mystic, converted from close minded Fundamentalism, I now consider myself a Gnostic Christian Spiritist! That’s a label I can wear with some humility these days along with a willing acceptance. In other words, I freely recognize my "Master Within", the "Christ in me", and the "Hope of Glory" rather than what, as a misguided fundamentalist Christian, I used to believe in. Most born-again fundamentalist Christians believed somehow magically they had a material body of the Lord Jesus made up of real flesh, blood and bone in their hearts, inside their own bodies! Was it magic, imaginary or only hopefully?


I think the material, physical remains of the human part of the human person of Jesus of Nazareth, would be spread real thin had he still existed in every Christian walking around today. Let alone all those millions who were born, lived and died since he was crucified on the cross 2000 odd years ago! We really need to think rationally about what we can believe versus that which we parrot by rote. That is a belief in those old sayings of religious people who tend to leave their god given reason outside the doors of the Church when they enter into it each Sabbath day.
For me at least, it is much more intelligent and wise to understand that our Master Within is the VERY same Master SPIRIT, which the material man Jesus had in his own body too. The CHRIST or LOGOS when he walked the Earth! Now, there is a bunch of Theology I can back that up with, but I choose not to because my purpose is not to try and convince anyone to believe as I do.

I AM not the Savior of anyone else's Soul, other than my own, because it is for each Soul's Free Will to either believe or disbelieve whatever brings one to Inner Peace and Tranquility! As I heard an old Priest recently say: "In all my years as a Priest, I have learned two things only: (1) There is a God and (2) I am not Him!"

The word "Salvation" is another misnomer of Theological dogma having many variables which I will leave to the paid Clergy who earn their living by recruiting another sheep to the flock as a loyal Tither. Been there, done that too! I much prefer being truthful about what I feel and believe these days rather than preach dogmas like tithing which I no longer, if ever, truly believed myself. This allows me to sleep much more peacefully when I close my eyes to find myself alone with my Inner Master. As sensible people, with any human understanding at all, educated or not, everyone at some point in their lives attempts to sort out where they came from, who or what sent them, what they are supposed to do with their lives, and if there a God. And if so, does this God have anything to do with them anyway, and if so, why does he always hide in silence and allow all the evil to continue in the world. This is basic human questioning, that almost all of us have done or are still doing. Yes, we all have our ups and downs, joys, sadness, sickness, health, success and failures. But most humans go through life, from the womb to the tomb, day to day, only in survival mode, until suddenly without warning the angel or messenger of death knocks on the material door and pulls Soul back out of the body to deposit it where? Again, belief systems are challenged. But since I consider myself a type of Christian, i.e. a Dualist Gnostic Spiritist, I would properly identify my current understanding of just who I AM with Reincarnation and Karma the only sensible methodology of how any merciful Creator Deity Lord God could continue to allow such evil to continue in our world and yet never seem to force it to cease. In other words, "What goes around comes around", "Every action causes an equal reaction" or "The wages of sin is spiritual death", or for the irreligious unbelievers, "Life's a bitch, and then you die!" But, are we all created equal, and from the start in our earthly lives? No, for certain we are not. Just look around you, for proof of this. It is ridiculous to believe each human being on earth is born in equal bodies with equal possibilities, in equal families, environments and countries and so on. Sure each individual spirit or Soul was created equal yet each spirit once incarnated in its very first material body became "a living human soul as God breathed the breath of life into him."

So from that very first incarnation the wheel of karma started turning for that individual spirit became knotted with a soul, both aspects essentially imprisoned in a material body to work out its own "Salvation with fear and trembling" as the Apostle Paul spoke of an taught! Interestingly most Christians today who "confess Jesus as Savior by his shed blood on the cross" are following a far more ancient dogma from many other Sects used long before the man Jesus of Nazareth was ever on earth! In fact, it is so easy to overlook the fact Jesus Christ was NOT EVER a Christian himself! (Warning Heresy Alert!!!!)

Much evidence now exists that Jesus was in fact a Judaic Essene which included the dreadlocked hair Nazarene or Nasserite evangelist order of which he was also a member of. Jesus had Jewish Nazarite parents and siblings plus he preached his teachings and philosophy to the local Jews. Jesus never told uncountable missionaries to go out and preach the Gospel to all nations. He only told "the eleven" ( Mark 16:14, 15, 16.). Jesus never told anybody that he was God, nor that he was his own Son! Yet he probably did say while on the cross, "My God, my God, why have you forsaken me?"

After the death of Jesus, his brother James the Just, as he was called, led the Ebionite Church which was actually called the Nazorene Jerusalem Church. By reading the New Testament Epistle of James one will find a much different Gospel taught by James than by the Saint Paul of Tarsus. James taught that faith without works is dead, whereas Paul taught that we are only saved by Grace through Faith and not by works alone. The Nazorenes were a Sect who claimed to have acquired their mystical teachings from James the Just.


The Apostle Peter, who denied Jesus three times before and during his crucifixion, was not the apostle who led the followers of the Inner Group of Ebionites that Jesus had initiated. This secret Initiation which Jesus shared with his inner group of disciples is still the sought after true Initiation that many still seek today in various, usually esoteric teaching sects, that is not taught by any of the Christian churches or denominations. It was instead his brother James the Just, who led the early genuine Jesus of Nazareth Church!
James led this new Ebionite (aka Nazorean, Nasarite, Nazarene, and essential Gnostic Essene) Church of the followers of Jesus from his crucifixion until 62A.D. when James was captured, persecuted and then killed by the Jewish Sanhedrin by stoning. The Apostle Peter was the one who was lifted into place as the deemed first leader of the later established Roman Catholic church. This was not done until the 4th century by Emperor Constantine who was basically the first Catholic Pope. Therefore the Popes to this day claim direct descent from the Apostle Peter and insist he was anointed by Jesus himself to lead the early ‘church’. Thus the Bible says it is so. So, who is correct then is it Saint Paul, James the Just, or the Apostle Peter? Better still if you do consider yourself a Christian, and saved by Grace, and not by works, who do YOU actually follow or align yourself to here as being the key establisher of Jesus’ church and teachings after he departed the scene? For beginners who actually was Saint Paul? Well Paul was not even one of the original Apostles that who walked with and were taught directly by Jesus. Paul never saw Jesus in the flesh either. Paul was a Roman citizen born in Tarsus, in present day Turkey to Roman parents who had converted to Judaism. (or was that Jewish parents who had converted to be ‘pagan’ Romans – I am unsure)

Christians should already know "the story" of Saint Paul persecuting Christians by reading Acts in the Bible. Yet the fact is that at the time THERE WERE NO CHRISTIANS in existence! Paul was actually persecuting these Ebionite followers of James the Just, the brother of Jesus who was then leading the followers of Jesus as well as openly challenging the teachings and leadership of the Apostle Peter.

Paul instead essentially created his own teachings about Jesus Christ, after his major Spiritist type of epiphany which came out of his ‘road to Damascus experience’. Saint Paul’s teachings are therefore those which certainly show a closer resemblance to what most of the so-called Christian denominations preach today. The present Christian Churches follow a system of dogma taught by the converted Roman Citizen born of converted Hebrews who had nothing to do with Jesus, were actually


Roman citizens living in Turkey not Palestine who never met him, when Paul was blinded on the road to Damascus by a light and a voice claiming (Paul believed) to be Jesus Christ!
Another interesting little known fact is that Qumran, where there was a large Essene community of followers communed, was called Damascus by many during that time. So more likely than not Paul was not looking for people to persecute on his way through Syria as most may assume was the case. Most Gnostics, esoterics, and spiritists also claim to see light inside, to hear inner voices and sound, and lay claim to Christ as their Hope of Glory, much as Saint Paul did all those years ago. Also, most Gnostics of the early A.D. centuries did not accept the Old Testament Jehovah as being God the Father nor the Father whom Jesus is said to have spoken about. So these various pieces of history may raise all kinds of questions for a seeker after truth, such as, are so called Christians today Christians, Jews, Ebionites, or Gnostics? Well the truth is that each of us has to decide for ourselves, or alternatively stick to that which has been chosen for us by our parents or our preacher.

My own personal belief is the Hope is the Christ in me, the Hope of Glory, of whatever is animating this present body is to survive transition to another place (when the biblical "Silver Cord" is severed from the body which Spiritists refer to as the "Perispirit" i.e. the Astral link that is joining spirit to the body and holds it there until death) releases my spirit to join Christ, where "I" will be judged and given my next assignment.

That next assignment will either be right back here on Earth in a new Model of a material body or on some other planet or spiritual plane that will have totally different bodies to be afforded by the Creator as containers of the spirit/soul. I have no desire to be resurrected back into this exact same body that has been holding my spirit/soul prisoner here, witnessing that body getting older, more withered and wrinkled, fatter or thinner, looser and more dilapidated and slowly worn out beyond the useful Vehicle of Progression of the Soul that it once was. Cut Me loose Lord, I say! But, not quite yet please! I still have a few more messages left I would love to share with my fellow souls. Until now Grace from the Christ Spirit has treated me enduringly well. Yet I do know that karma has had a profound positive effect on my progression in life up to now. There was plenty of works, and plenty of faith, and best of all, much GRACE has made it possible for me to continue on using my own stamina and resourcefulness. As it has been said by many about Life: ‘Each to thine own heart be true!’. I am content to be at this stage in life where I now find myself in the centre point of this great wheel of karma. For alas dear friend it is true that "My Karma has completely run over and destroyed My Dogma"!

All I can do now is to remain steadfastly open for any further gifts of Grace our Creator is willing to shower upon me, along with any new assignments of Eternal Life Adventures in the near or distant future, whenever, where ever, and whomever, they may Become. Until we meet again, I remain,
