Without True Knowledge of the Past, There is No Future
You may think you come from some smart apes or from no-where, however, wouldn’t it just be nice to k...
Conventional philosophical, historical, scientific and religious sources should have explained why you are here, and what you must do to achieve what you were meant to achieve in this life. And to do that, you first have to understand what you really are, because you truly don’t know, do you?
Don’t kid yourself, you don’t. What you look at in the mirror is just some ape-like-body in a mini skirt or a tie, but it’s not you. So, if you don’t know what you really are, how can you get anything right in your life?
Your life is just an accident waiting to happen. And for many of you, your daily doings are totally accidental and most likely far from successful in achieving your life’s purpose.
You may choose to believe in the story of Adams rib, seven days and talking snakes etc. but it is not clear to anybody what was really meant by those metaphors.
The many transliterations and misinterpretations you hear are varied and imaginative, but only the truth can help you to know all this. Accidental interpretations, wishful thinking, faith or metaphors you don’t understand cannot.
If the information doesn’t make sense, it’s non-sense.
First, Our Spiritual Origin:
According to the real secret teachings, the Universe was not first created out of matter, but existed prior to material creation in spirit form. Imagine a Consciousness similar to our own, except that this first Consciousness was boundless, a Universal Consciousness or Super Consciousness.
At some point, the Universal Consciousness desired to express itself. It began to conceive, to imagine and to express its inner promptings. And so the creation began – light, sound ... eventually stars, galaxies etc.
This was prior to the physical creation of the Universe that science records. This was a realm of thought, fantasy and imagination; no physical forms existed, only thoughts in the Consciousness of the Universe. The physical Universe had not yet been created.
According to the secret teachings, there came a point in this spiritual creation where the Creator's Consciousness desired to bring forth companions, creatures like itself that would share in this expression of life.
In order for the creatures to be more than creations, they had to possess individual consciousness and freedom so that they could, if they would, choose to be loving companions and co-creators.
Otherwise, they would only have been servants of the original consciousness. So within the one Universal Consciousness many individual points of Consciousness were awakened and given freedom.
It's important for us to realise that at this point in our existence we did not have physical bodies. All of what has just been described occurred within the mind of the Universal Consciousness. Consequently, its form resembled that of thought or imagination rather than physical objects.
In the very beginning we were individual points of consciousness within the one great Universal Consciousness. At first we were quiet and our wills were content to observe the wonders of the spiritual creation as they flowed from the mind of our Creator.
In these early periods we were so much a part of the Creator's Consciousness that we were one with it, virtually indistinguishable from it. However, it wasn't long before some of us began to use our wills and express ourselves.
At first, we simply imitated the creator, but eventually we gained experience, and with experience came knowledge and confidence. Then we truly began to create on our own, adding new realms to the spiritual creation, much like a second voice adds to a song by singing harmony with the main melody.
This was exactly why we had been created – to share in and contribute to the great expression of life and to be its co-creators and loving companions.
To fulfill this purpose we were created in the image of the creator: Consciousness with freedom, capable of conceiving, perceiving and remembering, capable of communicating directly with the Creator and the other companions.
Consciousness and free will were the greatest qualities given any creation, but they came with equally great responsibility for their use or misuse. Of course, the all-knowing Universal One knew the potential dangers in giving beings complete freedom to do as they desired.
However, the potential joy of sharing life with true companions, not servants, was deemed worth the risk. Therefore, each of these new free-willed beings would simply have to learn to take charge of themselves and to subdue harmful desires in order to live in harmony with the other companions and the Creator. To do otherwise would only bring chaos, suffering and separation.
Unfortunately, chaos came. As we continued to use our godly powers, we became more fascinated with them. We began to focus more and more on our own creations and became less concerned with and attentive to their harmony with the Creator, with the whole.
The more we thought of just ourselves and our own desires with less regard for the whole, the more self-centred we became, eventually perceiving ourselves as separate from the whole.
Of course, this sense of separation was all in our minds, so to speak, because there really was no way we could exist outside the whole because everything was of the Spirit. It was more a result of our sustained focus of attention on ourselves and our self-interests that resulted in a heightened sense of a distinct and separate self.
This was the beginning of trouble. It led to a very long fall for us, a
Fall that eventually left us feeling alone and separated from the rest of life.
It continued to the point that we, who were actually companions of and co-creators with the Universal Creator, today come to think of ourselves as little more than dust-like creatures, descendants of apes and inhabitants of a planet on the outskirts of a typical galaxy in the endless and diverse Universe.
To know ourselves and yet be one with the whole was the ideal condition, but the centring of awareness on self alone resulted in a sense of separation from the whole. The more we exercised our individual consciousness and free will for self-interest, self-gratification, self-glorification, self-consciousness and self-righteousness, the more we heightened our sense of self apart from the whole.
The resulting loss of contact with the source of our life and the purpose of our existence was the beginning of darkness and evil, which is ignorance and disregard for the Universal Laws and Principles.
Without a clear sense of our relationship to the rest of life, many began to use free will in ways that were never meant to be. Others simply let themselves be carried along with the current of life, abdicating their free will to the will of others.
In both cases, these were things that would make it very difficult for us to again be companions and co-creators to the Universal One. However, the Creator foresaw this potential and, prior to creating companions, created a Universal Law - whatever one did with one's free will oneself must experience the consequences.
The law was not intended as punishment or retribution for offences, but as a tool for education and enlightenment. Thus, as we used our freedom, we experienced the effect and came to understand and learn. Interestingly, both science and religion recognise this law. In science it is often stated that "for every action there is an equal and opposing reaction."
Its religious counterparts are "an eye for an eye, a tooth for a tooth"; "as you sow, so shall you reap"; and "as you do unto others, it will be done unto you." Even today's common knowledge expresses this principle in the saying "what goes around, comes around." This is the law of karma, sowing and reaping, of cause and effect and accountability.
It was, and is, the great teacher of the companions-to-be and it is an integral part of the hidden teachings. Once this law was established, the Creator conceived and freed countless independent points of Consciousness within its own Infinite Consciousness and, thus, the companions came into being, each conscious and free.
What a trembling wonder it must have been in those first moments! Again, it's important to realise that the companions were not physical bodies. They were like ideas in the mind of the creator that were given freedom to be independently conscious.
As they used their freedom, they developed into unique points of thought, feeling, desire, expression and memory. Each was slightly different from the other by virtue of its different vantage point within the Universal Consciousness.
Each companion had spirit. They had mind and Soul. Spirit is the essence of life, the life force. Remember the condition of the creator before the creation; alive yet still. This is spirit. It is the living stillness in the midst of activity.
So often we identify life with motion, but the essence of life was there before the motion. Spirit is the essence of life. Life in motion, or the power to move and shape ideas and even physical forms out of spirit, is mind. Mind is the sculptor, the builder who conceives imagines and shapes ideas out of the essence of life. Spirit is life; mind, the power to use it.
Each of the companions had spirit and mind. As they used their life forces, they developed experiences, memories, desires, fears etc. This caused their uniqueness; each had its own collection of experiences and aspirations; each its own story.
This individual aspect of the companion is its Soul. Soul is the sum total of all that the companion had done with its free-will consciousness. It's the companion's story, its complex of memories.
All of the companions have spirit and mind, but each developed a unique Soul, because each built a different collection of memories and experiences, resulting in different desires, hopes and attitudes about life. Thus, spirit is the life force, mind is the power to use it, and Soul is the being that develops.
The creation then progressed from essence to thought, thought to thought-form, and from thought-form to particle-form or atomic-form; in other words, matter. There are many realms to life. One of these realms is the third dimension – physicality as we know it today.
The companions, filled with newly found consciousness and freedom, went out into the vast universe to experience life and to learn about themselves, the Creator and their relationship to it.
In their travels through the universe, few of the companions entered the three-dimensional influences of Earth where they entered into physical form for the first time. Other Souls entered elsewhere in other systems, dimensions and planets where they took on other physical shapes and mind realities conductive to their desire and their needed experiences.
As the first wave of virgin Souls entered the earth, they became so encapsulated in the physical that they began to identify themselves more with their form than with their consciousness. They began to think of themselves as physical entities rather than free, living Consciousness.
Incredibly, they began to think they were only earthly beings and their celestial origins began to be forgotten. Form was so substantial, so sensual, so captivating that it was difficult to hold on to the more delicate reality of spirit-thoughts, pure point of consciousness in a Universal Consciousness.
To have an individual physical body of whatever sort, even a less than perfect body or materialized thought projection was also the ultimate in self-identity and self-expression. It had the power to separate the individual from the whole and the formless spirit-thoughts of the higher realms.
Strong identification with the physical made the companions subject to the laws of nature and, of course, that part of nature's cycle, which is death. The body would come to life according to the laws of nature, live for a time, and then die.
In their original state, the companions were continually alive, but those who began to strongly identify with their physical bodies of whatever kind or their own thought projection of some mixed bodies, were now affected by death to help them shed the bizarre half animalistic flesh they inhabited.
Since they thought they were their bodies, as many still do today, they considered themselves dead when their bodies died. Dead led to great confusion, and when those companions who had not become involved in the material universe saw what had happened to the others, they decided to help those in the flesh regain their former state of conscious awareness.
However, it was not going to be easy. In addition to the influences of the physical dimension, the Souls were building reaction patterns (karmic, or action-reaction patterns) with their wilful activities in the physical universe.
According to universal law, these actions had to be met – properly met in the physical universe where they had been initiated. The more one acted outside the Universal Laws in the physical dimension, the more one built debts that had to be met in the physical.
Death changed nothing except that those with karmic debts to be paid had to pay them by incarnating into another physical body. The result of this was reincarnation.
Another effect of entering the physical dimension was the division of Consciousness. According to the teachings, as an individual began to enter deeper into the physical, its consciousness separated into the three divisions or levels of conscious awareness.
Two of these divisions most acknowledge today, the physical consciousness / intellect and the subconscious. The first entails the physical realm where the human body requires a three-dimensional consciousness / intellect to function on the material plane.
It has become the part of our consciousness we are most familiar with, what we have come to call the physical conscious mind or intellect. Many materialistic minded people would consider ‘it’ to actually be the I, or me of ourselves. It is within this part of consciousness that we experience physical life, and our personalities are developed.
The second part of consciousness is shadow-like while one is incarnate in the physical dimension. It lives life as a shadow, always there, listening, watching, remembering and making its profound and sometimes frightening presence known.
We have come to call this part of our consciousness the sub-conscious mind. From this area come dreams, intuitions, unseen motivations and deepest memories etc. Accordingly, the subconscious is the realm of the Soul that uses the conscious mind as a mechanism for manifesting in the physical realm through the five senses.
Often the thoughts and interests of the conscious mind, combined with the desires of the body, become so strong and dominant that only its activities seem important and real; the subconscious seems illusionary and unrelated to outer life. But in truth, most of the real life memories occur in the subconscious.
The third area of the now divided consciousness is the most Universal. It is the part we can perceive and with which we can commune with the Universal Consciousness.
We have many different names for it: the collective mind, the universal mind, the collective unconsciousness and the super-consciousness, universal consciousness and Christ consciousness etc.
The more one's attention moves into the physical conscious mind/intellect, the narrower and limited the focus and awareness becomes, the lower the vibrational frequency. The more one moves toward the Universal Consciousness the more one becomes aware of the whole, the universal forces and the Creator, the higher a Souls vibrational frequency.
It may be more difficult to perceive the infinite when one is grossly involved in the finite, but the Universal Consciousness and the potential for attuning oneself to it remains.
Curiously, access to it is through the inner consciousness of the incarnate individual and not outside of it, making it a very mysterious passage for physical beings using their free will.
In time, however, the companions trapped in the physical dimension could again become aware of the difference between the physical and spiritual life. They could again come to know their original state and purpose, and regain their spiritual birth right of companionship with the Creator.
In time they could come to realise that the conditions in their present physical life were the result of their free-will actions and choices before the present life.
If the companions trapped in the physical dimension could genuinely begin to believe that the physical cannot possibly be all there is to life, they could begin the long journey back from form to spirit, a very difficult journey.
In many ways we, as human beings, are no longer spirit. Flesh has become very much a part of us, not just physically but mentally as well. Even when we are out of the body (through death, deep sleep, or some altered state such as meditation), bodily manifestation is still very much a part of us. Otherwise, there would certainly be no reincarnation. We would simply leave the physical dimension and never return.
The great paradox of humankind is that we are now both spirit and flesh. That's like saying we are a combination of oil and water, two substances that do not combine. The mystical analogy would more properly be fire and water; these, too, don't combine. How can anything be made up of two substances that are impossible to combine? Yet, such is the nature of humanity.
We are constantly forced to reconcile the seemingly irreconcilable: mercy with justice, cooperation with independence, unity with diversity, tradition with change, feeling with thought, love with truth, and on and on.
The old teachings go on to say that our physical beginnings on Earth came in two steps - a first wave of semi human, mentioned in other scripts as ‘Things’, ‘Giants’, ‘Nephilims’ or ‘Monsters’ and later as a 'second wave' of materialization into physical perfected human bodies.
The first wave of virgin Souls coming from the Spirit world entered into and used many different kind of bodies that were less than perfect having bizarre physical attributes that inhibited them from accessing their full Conscious potential and made it very difficult to escape the physicality they became trapped in.
Even today, Souls will at times enter a physical body that is less than perfect, but to a lesser degree. When Souls enter bodies that are misshaped and has many of the other handicapped ailments of whatever kinds, they are in a similar situations. Many physical attributes that are rare today were more common earlier, back then their differences and peculiarities were more extreme and in more bodies than today.
The bottom line is that Souls entered or used ill-suited physical manifestations or bodies of whatever kind, by choice.
Keep in mind it is the Soul and the Souls development that really matters, not the shape of the peculiar mortal flesh body they used and were trapped in temporarily.
You have probably heard of mythological beings described as the Minotaur, Centaur, Mermaids etc. The Minotaur had a bull's head and a human body, the Centaur a human head and torso with a horse's body. You may also have seen pictures of Egyptian, Minoan and Sumerian 'gods' with animal heads and human bodies, or animal bodies and human heads on their many wall depictions and their carved art.
These wall depictions were the best way primitive people could deal with the things they observe, but did not quite understand. Most of early history is awash with this art and depictions of Mixtures, Giants or whatever.
Why do you think so much of this exists? Many legends, myths and superstitions have some foundation in fact, and this is no exception.
The ancient teachings reveal that a variety of similar handicapped creatures with faulty physique and mentality did indeed exist and that their origins were not what you might expect - they were the fallen angelic beings from the first wave of incoming Soul’s failed attempt to materialize on Earth by thought projection and/or occupation.
But the first wave of materialization was not an evil thing as such. It was just a terrible mistake. Souls from the Spirit world were never ment to enter in the lower vibrations of materiality. All were free willed Souls trying different physical bodies to express themselves through.
Just as a Soul enter a human body close to birth right now, back then Soul would experiment and enter into bodies that was different physically and mentally, to experience the earthly realm. Souls of course didn’t know what an ideal body was meant to be; hence many variations of bodies were tried.
The human body had not been created yet, hence, they had nothing to compare or model themselves after. Remember, they were all spirit beings with no experiences in the physical world and by using their free will, mistakes were made. But Spirit is Spirit, and flesh is just flesh.
The stories you have heard have become terribly mixed up. But there was no 'rebellion' or defiance against the will of the Creator until AFTER this fall, not prior to the fall as is often depicted. The first wave was just a terrible mistake or error at first.
Try telling one person in the meeting hall a story, and ask him to repeat it quietly to the next and the next person to the next, until it comes back to you. By the time you hear your original story; it will not even be recognizable.
The same happened with the narratives in the Bible and many other scriptures, which came from long lines of well-meaning oral traditions as well.
The angels took on and tried many different strange forms and shapes. For ease of description we call the part human, part mentally and physically crippled beings that fell into physical vibration or matter during the ‘first wave’ of materialization for ‘humanimals’, or as the Bible and other narratives call them, “Nephilim” “Things” “Giants” “Mixtures” “Beasts” or “Monstrosities”.
As soon as the first wave of beings materialized in their ‘strange looking’ bodies, they suffered a great 'fall' in vibration from their previous high spiritual, angelic state of existence.
They instantly experienced a near total loss of conscious awareness, comprehension, and insight. In less than the twinkling of an eye, the Consciousness that just moments before had encompassed the entire Universe and experienced Oneness with the Universal Spirit/God, was virtually gone.
The new limited consciousness of these pitiful creatures 'trapped' them on the physical plane of the Earth, where they had to live in ignorance, with their animal-like primitive and undeveloped intelligence and awareness.
They were suddenly isolated from Universal Consciousness, and trapped in the lonely anguish of 'separate' consciousness. This separate consciousness gave birth to a sort of separate free will, which was ignorantly used selfishly, rather than in harmony with the laws of the Universe. Ultimately, they would also be trapped in physical slavery.
That kind of evil is spawned by selfishness, but later, even greater degrees of evil came about. Yet all selfishness and evil has since mistakenly been blamed on these poor unfortunate first wave ‘humanimals’.
To be sure, some looked strange by today’s norms, but they have been used as 'scape goats', and diversions, in order for others, including regular humans, to avoid taking personal responsibility for the real evil, the real devil, which is the selfishness living inside each human who maintains separate consciousness from the Oneness of the Creator.
Remember, we were spirits only, very 'fine', 'high-frequency' vibrational beings, all of us, with no experience in this physical realm. These unfortunate ‘humanimals’ came upon their terrible fate because of a rapid, uncontrolled slowing down of their vibrational frequencies, for purposes of materialization of their spiritual selves into the material plane of the Earth.
It occurred in a way that cut them off from their normal consciousness, like changing the dials on a radio to an area of radio frequency that had nothing to receive. Their 'internal radio' of consciousness, was no longer 'tuned in' to the Creator.
It was a materialization that went too far, too deep, into the dense, slow vibrations of the physical plane. This all occurred in the Lemurian (Mu) civilisation and the early Atlantean time frame.
When the finer frequencies were 'cut off' they were left 'cut off' from the Universal Consciousness and the rest of spiritual creation, and thus the Consciousness of the Oneness of the Universe - the Consciousness of the Universe - the Universal Spirit.
This left them with only a 'separate self- consciousness' that lost touch with the 'Oneness Consciousness', or 'Universal Consciousness'.
However, some of us did not make this 'fall'. Those of us who didn't fall were still in the angelic state, and watched all this happen to the first wavers from the spiritual dimension. The Grand Master organized and led a rescue mission. With great Love and compassion, many of the other angelic beings who had not 'fallen' decided to help the trapped first wavers, even at great risk of the same fate.
For now, I Bid You Adieu. Humbly Compiled.
