    1. Say out loud, “In union with the Creator’s Transcendence (right hand to 6th chakra), Incarnation (right hand to 2nd chakra), and Indwelling Presence (both hands crossed over heart chakra). Amen.

      Similar to the sign of the Cross.

    2. For many mystics, the “apophatic way,”

      Cataphatic = Positive Theology

      Apophatic = Not knowing, unknowing

    3. Luminous darkness seems like a strange combination of words. How can darkness by luminous, full of light?

      Scientists have discovered that what looks like darkness to the human eye is actually filled with tiny particles called “neutrinos,” slivers of light that pass through the entire universe. Apparently there is no such thing as total darkness anywhere, even though the human eye thinks there is.

    1. Didymos Judas Thomas

      Notice how Simon had an "aka" (Peter) John had an "aka" (the one Jesus loved) This could have been Thomas's aka: a twin of Jesus

    1. –The Infinite Creator transcends me in mysterious ways that includes things I cannot fully grasp [5]. I indwell within the Infinite Creator.

      Reminds me of the Buddhist "Ocean and Wave" analogy.

    2. All things in manifestation may be seen in one way or another to be offering themselves in order that transformations may take place upon the level appropriate to the action.”

      Isaiah 55:1 "Come, all you who are thirsty, come to the waters; and you who have no money, come, buy and eat! Come, buy wine and milk without money and without cost.

    3. But I’ve learned that I do not find teachers or spiritual teachings very deep or having much to offer me during those times when I find liminal-space living downright hard and heavy if they don’t address the difficulty of living in liminal space–and acknowledge its unparalleled sacredness.

      There's an old saying, "Don't trust anyone who doesn't walk w/ a limp."

    4. Liminal Space, that place of holding paradoxes together, is my permanent home in my life.

      Proverbs 14:10 The heart knows its own bitterness, and no outsider shares in its joy. Holding space for irony is all through the scripture and all through reality.

    1. speculated about Mary's virginity and purity, impacting later doctrine and devotion.

      I think this was always a mistake. There's nothing wrong with the natural earthly way of things.

    2. as Jesus’ mother, Mary guarantees Jesus’ humanity against rival *Gnostic claims.

      So, what started as a guarantee of earthly claim (Jesus' humanity) morphed into a guarantee of human's divinity (salvation economy).

    1. Ra says that 75,000 years ago when Earth’s third density came online, some of the second density beings harvested to third density without any assistance from the Confederation. They just were able to use second-density catalysts well enough through experience to be able to gain sufficient self-awareness to graduate. Other second-density beings received Confederation help in various ways.

      3rd Density Human... Body is weaker so the mind has to be used more Have to operate in COMMUNITY more Love is activated

      **Think about the book Rob Bell talks about Homeo Sapiens coming online

    2. space/time (not time/space)

      Space time is

      Time space is the astro plane

    3. I would guess that human investment over many years would create thoughtforms of such strength and complexity that a kind of oversoul of the actual structure forms, becoming a sentient nucleus or the seat of its “gestalt” phenomenon.

      Kinda like the Akashic Records on earth.

    1. That same flesh and blood are miraculously recreated by an ordained priest at that moment in the mass when the host is elevated and the words “This is my body, … this is my blood” are spoken.

      Hocus Pocus

    2. Theological innovation in the West during this time was largely concerned with reworking doctrinal formulations that had been imperfectly hammered out in the early church era. It was a period of theological controversy and will be organized in a chronological manner in this article.

      A constant process of reforming. Perfecting the written circle, which was always a representation of the "perfect sphere" held within the mind.

    1. those who are strong, intelligent, etc., have a temptation to feel different from those who are less intelligent and less strong. This is a distorted perception of oneness with other-selves.

      Elitism. This is a very strong trait in all humans. A sense that my tribe is better than anyone else.

    2. I acknowledge you as Co-Creator and afford you the dignity which that entails. I will not see you as less than God, less than me,

      I forwardly give you the ascended path and don't hold you back from becoming God, just as I am becoming God.

    3. once a baby becomes conscious of themselves, the Law of Responsibility in that lifetime comes online

      It might be good to teach parents to watch and know their children early so they can "train them up" as the scriptures teach because they are online quicker than we realize

    4. What seems “good” by human standards, in the consistent growth and exploitation of nature’s resources, is actually quite an infringement of nature’s freewill.

      Google's "do no evil" beginning compared to their current "bigness" is an interesting example.

    5. The orientation develops due to analysis of desire.

      Visualize and Verbalize what kind of person that you want to BE. Then align goals that get you there. Other things fall away Hebrews 12:1-2

      Have someone visualize their brokenness. Then imagine Jesus surrounding that visualization And watch the bondage break off

    6. The proper role of the entity is, in this density, to experience all things desired, to then analyze, understand, and accept these experiences, distilling from them the love/light within them. Nothing shall be overcome. That which is not needed falls away.

      Reminds me of what Richard Rohr says about experiencing sin. Openly experiencing it and realizing that it doesn't satisfy.

    1. Satan is a personification of the illusion of separation

      This is good. When we look at the other sacred text that was left out of the cannon, we see more of the Satan, which was more than just Lucifer. It could very well be the embodied separator.

    2. perceived separation that I discuss below would be the byproduct of the “veil of forgiveness”

      Perceived separation is the assumption that something is wrong with the "other" (like when you know you're right and the other is wrong) but in this case, the other is our own selves, which results in a sin-sorrow consciousness gone bad where I'm accusing myself as not good.

    1. When a piece of fabric is cut on the bias and sewn from the bias it has a tendency to create interesting drapes and to enhance the style of a garment. It is just so with human biases. Within an incarnated human’s life there will be a continuing and continuous experience of seeing things from a particular bias or slant, and then being able to choose to rethink and re-vision and see things from the opposite bias.

      This reminds me of the Train up a child verse. That part that says, "in the way he should go" is the Hebrew concept of taste or bent or what this model is calling BIAS. Which sounds even more solid, "Train up a child according to his/her bias and when they are old they won't depart from it." (Proverbs 22:6)

    2. There is nothing but bias. There is nothing but distortion in all of the nested illusions of your creation.

      Ra used "distortion" in ways that communicated good or bad according to the hearer's "bias".

    1. I eventually came to appreciate that by spending a number of sessions developing a relationship of the person to the innate inner resource of the higher self or a spiritual comforter, one mitigated some of the unpleasant agitation of reworking old traumas.

      This is that "Have a lil' talk w/ Jesus" remedy that Christians know and practice!

    2. if I uncovered the trauma memory without developing resources of comfort first, a person was prone to relive the trauma, and somewhat retraumatize themselves from the reliving.

      The Body Keeps The Score! Great book

    3. The love integrates the opposites, bringing healing of the negative mental state related to the catalyst.

      I just love seeing this because it confirms to me what I believe, that love integrates while hate separates! Love integrates the opposites.

    4. Balance is not indifference but rather the observer not blinded by any feelings of separation but rather fully imbued with love.

      Balance (from my deficit qualities) isn't hating my messiness. But loving myself and my story in a transcendent way that accepts where I was, embraces who I am, and assumes where I am going.<br> The moment I "hate" my past, I self-fragment. Hatred separates where I actually came from, from where I am going.

    5. become that bias

      This is an interesting exercise in the sense that "through bias becoming again" what you were in an earlier state. Once developed, one could even "go forward" in deep time and become again into that state.

    6. mentally examine, as with the scalpel of a surgeon, each bias which you can remember.

      Mentally examine each bias. Observing with your mind the "biases" that you adopted, adapted, accepted.

    7. creating sensory rich memories

      I like this phrase and I want to implement it into my thinking. This is one of the greatest gifts that we can give ourselves or the greatest way that we can hamper ourselves: within the sensory rich memories that we create. Isaiah 26:3

    1. Jesus realized how the Orion group had been responsible for most of the negativity in the Old Testament, and he came to make a New Covenant of Love.

      Jesus didn't know anything about Orion! This is important to understand. Even if Ra's model of truth is true (and very well could be); it could very well be that Jesus being a high 4th density entity experienced the "veil of forgetting" that he often transmitted, but was only aware of the Greatness of Truth in the context of a 1st Century Jewish Prophet.

    1. Where there’s war, there exists the collective mindset of “us and them”…of “we are right and you people are wrong”… of “we are separate from you.”

      To me, this is the essence of hatred. The commitment to separation. Where Love is the commitment to unity or oneness.

    2. The information attempted to copy or ape positivity while retaining negative characteristics.

      Think about a "robot" trying to be human, but you can clearly see it's disdain of humanity (like Mr. Smith in the Matrix) and everything that came out was like: Don't deal with me like this and like that and don't do this and don't do that and then we can get along... This ain't love!

    1. not because Yahweh desired to set up an elite group that would be superior to other people in order to lord over all, but rather to be “a light unto nations,” as mentioned in Isaiah.

      I perceive God's plan for Israel was to be a gateway into 3rd density humans, a type of priest for all nations. BUT notice the route Israel took was to have 1 sub-tribe out of their burgeoning nation (namely Levi) ONLY be the priest! This was the lesser desired option from Yahweh's perspective! It could have opened a greater channel for an imposter to enter! Deuteronomy 5:29

    2. The purpose of the Orion group, as mentioned before, is conquest and enslavement. This is done by finding and establishing an elite and causing others to serve the elite through various devices such as the laws you mention and others given by this entity.

      Dominance through Elites. This is a grievous danger. We've seen a constant perversion of Genesis 1:27-28 (fruitful, multiply, dominate earth) by those who see this charge as an exclusive office rather than a "law" to be governed through 3rd density complexes! Dominion was designed to be a service to 2nd density and the way toward 4th Density for those in 3rd: NOT SERVICE TO SELF!

    3. The answer is that they were two different “Yahweh’s.”

      OK. I'm trying to work with this. I feel like I've been on the edge of revelation concerning this for quite a while.

      • Wouldn't the 1st encounter w/ a negative entity be in Genesis (Specifically because of all the killing and wars and Gen 6 account)
      • Was the serpent a negative entity????
    4. The origin of these commandments follows the law of negative entities impressing information upon positively oriented mind/body/spirit complexes.

      Think about this "law". The law of negative entities is impressing information upon positively oriented beings. Interesting. Think of the old game, "Don't think of an elephant"

    5. choose the manner of their further seeking of the One Creator.

      So this is saying that even all of evil (service to self) is a manner of seeking the One Creator. MAY BE THE LOOONG ROUTE but it will end up at Oneness with the Creator, which is a oneness and not a duality, so evil will be swallowed up in victory!

    6. A few contemporary examples, in my mind, include our current discovery, acceptance, and healing of our many social ills such as racism, internalized racism, macro aggressions, micro aggressions, heterosexism, ageism, inequity at all levels including economic, racial, sexual, and gender.

      What is interesting here is that most of the time we have less of a problem if we aren't directly affected. But there are moments when such evil is seen and a tipping point is reached and we "feel the infirmity" of others and many humans stand in those moments with the marginalized.

      "THE WHOLE WORLD IS WATCHING" (Chant)

      The Better Angels of Our Nature: Why Violence Has Declined is a 2011 book by Steven Pinker,

    7. In the spiritual sense, we get what we deserve because “like knows like,” as the key Perennial Philosophical nugget goes.

      Job said Man is born into trouble as "sparks fly upwards" Job 5:7 and Jesus said, "Light has come into the world, but Men love darkness more because their deeds are evil" John 3:19 Negative stimulus wreaks havoc! (manure in ice cream)

    8. Therefore, part of the job of the quarantine-net is to safeguard the amounts of negative-polarity stimulus that gets in so that humans “are not hindered from free choice.” Orion can still get in but only to the degree allowed by karma and calling.

      This reminds me of the action of breathing and "free-will". We can freely choose to "STOP BREATHING". But to continue living in third density our bodies must breath and will KICK IN and automatically breath even if the brain has to make us black out to resume breathing!

    1. bring the noosphere to its highest level of convergence, eventually operating as a single consciousness.

      The highest potential of thought is focused into convergence, and flow: infinite intelligence.

    1. He describes reality as an  unbroken, coherent whole that is involved in an unending process of  change—called holomovement.

      This idea of "Holomovement" is fascinating. Reminds me of the theological view that God is an unfolding revelation that can't be fully crystallized (exhausted) by our finite capacity.

    2. we must  ultimately concede that they are all derived from an indefinable and un-  knowable whole

      This! In my opinion is the interpretation of the 1st Commandment Exodus 20:1

    3. Figure 1. A hologram is produced when a single laser light is split into two  separate beams. The first beam is bounced off the object to be  photographed, in this case an apple. Then the second beam is allowed to  collide with the reflected light of the first, and the resulting interference  pattern is recorded on film.

      Figure 2. Unlike normal photographs, every portion of a piece of holographic film contains all the information of the whole. Thus if a holographic plate is broken into fragments, each piece can still be used to reconstruct the entire image.

    4. Information  from these two beams, required for reproducing a three-dimensional  image, is “enfolded” in the hologram in such a way that it is distributed  throughout.

      Paul talked about the "manifold wisdom" of God (Ephesians 3:10) The enfolded information that is distributed throughout!

    5. As a result, when the hologram is illuminated by the laser,  the complete three-dimensional image can be “unfolded” from any  fraction of the hologram. We can cut the hologram into many pieces  and each part will still be capable of reproducing an image of the  whole.

      Illumination = unfolding = revelation of the ORIGINAL THOUGHT! God's intention is love

    6. A  hologram—which might be compared to a photographic slide from  which we project a picture—is a record of an interference pattern of  two halves of a laser beam.

      Remember when you discovered that you are a "confluence of streams"?

    7. So we now have a universe that is an infinitely complex system of  vibratory phenomena rather than an agglomerate of Newtonian objects.

      Law of One!!!! Complex system of vibratory phenomena.

    8. British astronomer James  Jeans said some sixty years ago, the universe of the modern physicist  looks far more like a great thought than like a giant super-machine.

      We are the actualization of a GREAT, COMPLETED, SANE, LOVING thought!

    9. A good television repair person can look at  the particular distortion of the picture or sound of a television set and  tell us exactly what is wrong with it and which parts must be replaced  to make the set work properly again. No one would see this as proof  that the set itself was responsible for the programs we see when we  turn it on. Yet, this is precisely the kind of argument mechanistic sci-  ence offers for “proof” that consciousness is produced by the brain.

      Reminds me of my Uncle's ability (through mechanical mastery) to touch a running car and tell if it was out of tune! In the same way, God can tell where we are "out of tune" when we abide in Jesus and gives us our needed "tune-up"

    10. our  individual consciousnesses connect us directly not only with our  immediate environment and with various periods of our own past, but  also with events that are far beyond the reach of our physical senses,  extending into other historical times, into nature, and into the cosmos.

      It could be the life-force that the atoms are made up of: Love *(what we call conscious energy) & Light (what we call infinite intention*) have a historical record that is holographic in nature and intrinsically connected to The One Infinite Creator.

    1. Earth’s particular third density experience is rather unique with so many souls from different parts of the galaxy, most of whom would be repeating third density.

      This could be the difficulty as well as the blessing. Being from so many polarities it's kinda like all of earth is like a late bloomer. Paul calls himself a child born out of season, but that also advents a deeper richer transformation once it fully takes place.

    1. stopped experiencing the Creator and for long periods of time became the Creator experiencing third density.

      KENOSIS

      Philippians 2:5-6

      1. Let this mind among yourselves, which is yours in Christ Jesus, 6 who, though he was in the form of God, did not count equality with God a thing to be grasped, 7 but emptied himself, by taking the form of a servant, being born in the likeness of men. 8 And being found in human form, he humbled himself by becoming obedient to the point of death, even death on a cross. 9 Therefore God has highly exalted him and bestowed on him the name that is above every name, 10 so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bow, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, 11 and every tongue confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. Philippians 2:5-11
    2. The Logos’ plan all along was to reveal a heart-driven path up and out of 3rd density at the beginning of the last minor cycle through a living image or icon so that we (humanity) could see this image, fall in love with this person, follow this person, and single-heartedly imitate him.

      Said so beautiful and poetic.

    3. Every manifested thing has this same triune nature and this is what is meant that we “were made in the image and likeness of God.” 

      The triune nature is part of the fractal design.

    4. To sum up, the Infinite Creator has a triune nature on this side of divine awareness.

      A clear view of the fish from my perspective of the fishbowl

    5. Daskalos
    6. This differentiation gave rise to a triune nature.  Traditional Christianity terms the Trinity as the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

      Think about Rohr's Divine Dance:

      God as Trinity demonstrates as the actual and wondrous shape of the Divine Reality, which then replicates itself in us and in “all the array” of creation.

      Rohr, Richard. The Divine Dance: The Trinity and Your Transformation . Whitaker House. Kindle Edition.

    7. the Infinity (God with the lights off) became aware of Itself (God with the lights on).

      This reminds me of the Kabalistic view of "zimzum" where God in the form of all began to give distinction and form to things out of Himself. From Lights Out to Lights On!

    1. In each infinitesimal part of your self resides the One in all of Its power.

      Quaker view that God is in everything and all. See it.

    2. Maybe the egoic self doesn’t get “balanced” by doing good inner work but it was a catalyst to diving down and in.

      The egoic self doesn't get "balanced"... it gets out of the way for a more upgraded, informed, improved version of the self! Is the ego the "husk" that Francis joked about in himself? The husk protects the fruit, until the fruit "outgrows" the husk!

    3. “Ego” is also used in terms of the “egoic.” It’s akin to the “false self” that is connected to one’s self-image and self-importance. And here, it is important to note that the egoic self isn’t “bad,” per se. It just isn’t the True Self.

      Could the "ego" in this sense be the "limited image" of a person?

      • This is like the 'GRAVEN IMAGE' that was forbidden to describe Yahweh in [because it's too limited]
      1. Like trying to experience a video through one frame!
    4. From this seeking, from this offering, a great multiplicity of opportunities will evolve depending upon the mind/body/spirit complexes’ distortions with regard to the various illusory aspects or energy centers of the various complexes of your illusion.

      I believe now that the universe is gracious. I used to believe that the universe (God included) was jealous, stingy, scarce and dogmatic. But the universe is gracious. There are innumerable ways (multiplicity of opportunities) to love and serve God!

    5. The offering of self to Creator is the greatest service, the unity, the fountainhead. The entity who seeks the One Creator is with infinite intelligence.

      Psalm 40:6-8

      1. In sacrifice and offering you have not delighted, but you have given me an open ear. Burnt offering and sin offering you have not required.
      2. Then I said, “Behold, I have come; in the scroll of the book it is written of me:
      3. I delight to do your will, O my God; your law is within my heart.”

      Intentional "Living Self-Sacrifice"

    6. If you will observe those oriented through a lifetime experiential distortion complex from near the beginning of that experience, you will observe a relatively youthful, as you would call it, appearance.

      People that love well have a look of aliveness radiating out of them.

    7. In other words, they could receive the questions, check for alignment with Don’s mind, research the answer, create a response that is like an energy-ball of information and concepts, and then enter this energy-ball into a kind of inter-density “computer” that translates the energy into the English language.

      Reminds me of the language box scenario where someone thinks they are speaking in Chinese, but there's translators doing the real work.

      Also, the idea of word processors do the same thing. We only see the front of the interface (Microsoft Word) whereas the "CODE" is running all types of procedures in the background (in dos language).
