Light and the Manifest Illusion
As I read and research on current developments in Ascension Process as it ripples around the globe in ever widening circles, I See that there is a great deal of misunderstanding among the recently awakened regarding how life functions within the boundaries of the Earth/Gaia’s Planetary Grid. I am going to attempt to shed some Light in this area if I may.
First of all, there are a great number of misconceptions about how Hierarchy works in this Universe and many others. This is not a case of better than or more worthy than… It is merely a matter of Integrity. A condition of being Closer to All-That-Is in energetic composition. I am going to simplify greatly here, because it is not necessary to worry the details. The best way to look at it is to see Creation as a blossoming, and unfoldment from the Center (Source/All-That-Is/The Void). I would note that I am speaking of this Universe here. There are countless Universes, experiencing a myriad variations of this process.
Out of that Center(Source/All-That-Is/The Void). wishing to know Itself, Longing for the experience of Self-Reflection, first came the Emanations, the Sephiroth or Attributes through which the Infinite begins to Know Itself. There were Ten in the beginning (Until the War initiated by an Archangel attempting to Usurp the Creative Impulse caused Two of the Mighty Emanations to split resulting in Twelve. I will address this subject in the future if there is interest.) and out of the interactions of these Emanations, Life began to emerge into Creation. First those we know as the Archangels, the Word of God in Motion, then the Elohim, the Expression of God’s Nature, and Manu, the Co-Creator of God’s Will.
The Emanations were the First Lifestreams, those closest to Source, then they began to split into these Kingdoms of Beings, with each Emanation expressed through these Three. From there, the Kingdoms each began to split into rivers of Light/Life, into the various Angelics, the Elementals and the Humans, constantly branching into more diverse channels and tributaries. This simultaneous expansion and individuation extended the Awareness of All-that-Is and enriched all of Creation.
Light Becomes Matter—The Corporeal Being
When Light, and I speak here of Life— the Lifestream—enters into the restricted environment of the lower dimensional or material planes within the distortion of the Space-Time Continuum about a star or planet, it becomes fragmented. I use the term Lifestream to convey the concept of Self I wish to address, rather than the more limited concepts of Spirit, Soul, Entity or Being. When Light, the Lifestream, intersects the grid of Space, Time, Gravity and Relativity, it splits and refracts into a myriad tributaries of Light.
The Fragmentation that a Lifestream experiences upon entering the density surrounding a planetary body is unavoidable. This is the reason for the difficulty on Earth/Gaia of experiencing oneself as part of the Larger Reality, the loss of connection with the Higher Self and the isolation of the Individual. I will attempt a rather simple explanation. I have already said that Lifestreams on Earth have fragmented. Instead of intersecting with the Energy Body, the electromagnetic field, of the Earth while still maintaining their own integrity, Lifestreams here are pulled into a spiral of increasing Density, of condensed form, as they approach the physical body of the planet. Light becomes Matter. It is as if the Lifestream were passing through a grid formed out of the intersection of Time and Space. It cannot remain intact and do so, so it splits or fragments into many individual aspects.
Because there is a great variation in the gravitational field ones encounter as they approach Earth, the seeming flow of Time is variable also, or Relative, becoming slower as gravity increases and limiting the dimensions of Awareness that can be experienced by the Lifestream fragment. Since Time doesn’t really exist except as a dimension of Awareness, experienced by the limited consciousness of the Fragment Lifestream one point of focus at a time, in a linear or chronological fashion, the Lifestream is spread out along the field created by each Incarnational Aspect. In other words, the Self you are at this moment is not the same Self you were half an hour ago, or will be a half hour hence. To complicate matters further, each Self, operating independently within the moment, or the boundaries of its separate framework, has the power to choose from an array of decisions which may affect all of the Selfs which have come before or after. This creates a further dispersal of the Lifestream into a multidimensional terrain containing alternate realities and probable events, as well as variations in perception and perspective sufficient to “change the world” you seemingly inhabit. So, what was One shining stream of light before it arrived on Earth, is now incomprehensibly scattered.
So while you were a magnificent Being of Light, now you are a corporeal being, tied to the surface of the planet, forced to find food, shelter and sustenance before you can even start to ponder on your Larger Reality. And of course, when addressing the dimension of Time, there is the matter of what is thought of as reincarnation—the aspects of Self that appear throughout the probable pasts. Since Time is primarily a Tool used to organize Perception, it only seems to fall into a Linear construct. In Reality, it is all Now, dependent upon where you have placed your perceptual focus. The consensus reality is set up so that we experience it as a unidirectional flow for the most part, creating a shared framework through which humanity can interpret Life. However, each of what would be seen as these incarnational aspects represents a further sundering of the original Lifestream/Awareness that entered into the planet’s density. Since we’re keeping this simple, I believe this is enough for the present about the descent into corporeal existence.
Turning Around—Going Back to The Light
Now that we have gotten to the Matter of the matter, I would like to speak briefly about some of the ploys used by the Lifestream in order to survive and organize itself within the limitations of physical being. I have broken down these systems into eight principle components which also correspond rather closely to certain of the initiatory experiences that accompany investiture into many of the traditions and religious vocations. These are the various aspects, readily accepted as Self by most, which are used to tailor or define our function within the boundaries of the World in which we find our self at any given point. You may think of them as costumes, disguises of what we are in the context of larger Reality, or for the more technologically minded, as the software,programs or apps used to adapt a computer or other device to the user’s purposes. These then, are the components of the physical focus as I’ve classified them; Persona, Mold of Man, the Form, the Ego, the Soul, the Spirit, the Christ Self, and the I Am. These are to some extent arbitrary labels I have assigned to the various aspects of Manifest Self, but very apropos for the most part. They align closely with the subtle bodies described by mystics and seers for millennia, but are a more concise picture of the more physical aspects we present to the world.
In order to escape this corporeal fracturing of Lifestream, this loss of memory and integrity ones encounter upon entering the planetary energy body, we must first realize that there is More to us. And that Realization ideally leads us to Seek Freedom, to pursue what we call Ascension Process. That process begins to unfold when we start the assimilation or balancing of these Aspects of Self. Greater numbers of people are seeking this very freedom, embarking upon the difficult journey of Ascension, than ever before. While it is as easy as making the decision to do so, it is not a decision made lightly, or past a certain point, without an understanding of what is entailed. It is another paradox that one cannot discover the True Self, until one has found the True Self…
