Note: this is a long metaphysical rant, best digested in short amounts of reading. While I agree with most of it, the author forgets that ‘Talk does not cook the rice”. If half of his energy was devoted to internal alchemical practices, in stead of intellectual ideas about how alchemy is the only cure for the plaent’s ills – then there would be far more progress. – michael
from the text:
Based on various esoteric teachings, the soul is something human beings need to develop or grow from a consciousness seed (see Gurdjieff, Castaneda), and to embody it via spiritual/esoteric work. In the average person in todays post-modern maze, the soul remains in an embryonic state and is thus not fully individualized. Until the soul has matured, ones identity lies in the mechanical false personality and is open to manipulation on all levels. An embodied soul, on the other hand, becomes the seat of the real selfs creativity and dynamism, and the personality blossoms as an expression of ones higher (immortal) identity, connected to spirit and the Divine within.August 3, 2016 at 3:11 pm #46940
This quote is very positive but leads to the obvious dilemna.
It could all just be personal mythology if there is no proof.
If the material is presented in a way which seems like mythology,
it may actually be an obstacle to the truth.
The premise IS real.
How can “we” know that it is real?
1) Genuine exercises in “heart” based “yogas” activate a true sympathetic resonance. It may take, possibly, a year to actually get the confirmation, but it does not take that much input or work.
2) There is a real continuum interacting with that system which CAN be documented through dream research, hypnosis, bio-feedback/analysis tools, and near death research.
3) We have real locations for a REAL bio-eletric “soul” which is NOT just an idea. It is eventually proven through a combination of the above items in conjunction with the channels and pathways that have been documented for millenia.
4) We have genuine psychedelic tools which activate a real “ajna” center to a degree of cosmic awareness which could not otherwise be sustained during the daily process.
WE CAN NOT LIVE THE SPICE INITIATION EVERY DAY.
We can, however, know that it is real.
This leads to the ultimate question:
How can we know where the soul is coming from?
That can only be revealed/proven by walking these experiential paths as we come to know that
I) We are interconnected and bio-electric/electro-magnetic.
II) We are genuinely preserving memory across the life/death barrier.
III) That it is a “solar” nucleus (Middle Cauldron) which is combusting, developing, and moving within those landscapes.
We can retrace the steps back,
make contact with the resonant knowledge of those who have been through,
blow through the door with magical potions,
It may take awhile,
it may take no time at all.
The way to know that the “Solar” core is beyond life and death is by awakening the memories/pathways and learning the landscape
BECAUSE the interface in this dimension is psychic/”electro-magnetic”…
and that can be proven.
When the organism dies, the light fades BECAUSE it is REALLY fading.
We do not need mythologies, beyond artistic function, when there is a REAL universe doing these amazing things.
To that “mystical” end,
we have no explanation,
or cause for limit,
to a “Universe” which has no “rational” or “normal” means of ever occurring to begin with….
What law explains the occurrence of “Universes”, possibly ceaselessly, without origin? Within what space do they occur?
It is the equal “MIRACLE” of an occurrence from,
NOTHING or ETERNAL INFINITY.
which shows something is occuring beyond normal comprehension.
(HINT HINT: It is the “Holy Spirit” eternally regenerating, evidenced by PHI,
but that again sounds like mythology and serves as distraction from the point).
