ASCENSION DOUBT BLUES
It seems so long ago: All that excitement, spreading throughout the New-Age World about the Ascension Process: To ascend, and entirely by our own efforts. Neither Lord Sananda, nor Eric Klein, through whom Lord Sananda channelled, made any pretence that the information was new or original. Far from it, what was offered was very ancient knowledge. This is knowledge that has, from time to time during Man’s long history, been offered; always at Mankind’s then current level of understanding. Once more in the early nineteen nineties we were offered that knowledge again: That time hopefully at our level of understanding.
Our physical bodies to fill with Light as we individually ascend to the Ascended Master Level and above. Surely even for New-Age seekers with the sketchiest scientific knowledge, this isn’t too difficult to comprehend? All that is needed is to combine knowledge of the process with what is every-day common knowledge already as we approach the year 2012. No one needs to be a scientific genius to know that if we insist on regarding physical matter as something solid, we are fooling ourselves. Scientists have proved that all physical matter is really structured from energies compelled to whirl in space-enclosing orbits so convincingly that the whirling energies create an illusion of solidity when they combine as atoms in great numbers. We admit that Jesus would have had great difficulty explaining sub-atomic realities to the Multitude: But in this day and age, as Lord Sananda, He probably thought it wouldn’t be necessary. All that is required is to give it a little clarity of thought.
On the one hand we have priests whom have always insisted that our non-physical Creator created our physical universe, though they can’t tell us how. On the other hand, our scientists have proved that physical matter really is controlled energy, though they can’t tell us what controls the energies, nor from where the energies arrive. So that dumps it squarely in the lay-person’s lap. Though they would never admit it, scientists have shown us how our Creator used the power of intelligence to control energies of self to create and continually re-create our physical universe, and of course this includes our physical bodies. It isn’t such a difficult mental leap to deduce what Lord Sananda was actually telling us. It is the INTELLIGENCE of each individual human being that will remove and replace our Creator’s control of the basic energy structure of each human physical body.
It is important to understand that Ascension is nothing to do with physical bodies glowing with light. When you ascend: Where you ascend to, you will have evolved beyond the need for a physical body. It is the full control of the basic energy that structures your body that you will need. At the moment everything you have including your body, is borrowed from your Creator’s energies, but it is necessary to think beyond Ascension. We hear vague mention of our Creator’s Great Plan that as God’s Children we are part of, what is this plan?
During our many physical lives, when we become parents, we fully expect our children to grow and mature into adults who will become our equals. If our Creator is our parent, what does that parent expect from us, eternally to be children, or to mature and evolve to our Creator’s adult level? All of this is food for thought, especially for those who believe that each unique human will eventually return to, and become part of, a central “Me” that we now regard as our Creator. This belief is based on the unproved assumption that Our Creator is the only creator, whose Creation is the only creation.
Equally valid is the unproved assumption that our Creator is part of a process of Creators. That in fact our Creator also was created by a Creator, and then had to evolve to the Creator Level in that Creator’s Creation. Do give this idea some thought because it means that our Creator has in mind greater plans for our future as individuals, than the roles of applauding, worshipping Christian audiences or as a bunch of memories for that central “Me” to reminisce about. Also it would make sense of our need of our body’s energy structure after our individual Ascension. This energy structure donated from our Creator’s energies will become our own energy supply; independent of our Creator’s energies. This would make sense if the plan is for us all to be independent unique creators in our own hard-earned right. The authors admit that these are large-sized, intimidating thoughts, but then that is what free-thinking is all about, isn’t it? It means we don’t meet our Creator on our knees. We meet as adults. It will be a loving relationship between independent son/daughter and parent. It will be a relationship in which we have evolved and matured to the Creator Level to be greeted as very special, trusted, unique, beloved friends.
The intention behind the Great Plan could be that INDIVIDUALLY, after that greeting, we leave our Creator’s Creation behind to enable us to continue the work of replacing the energies of Chaos with our own unique version of Creation. After all, how many creators does our Creator’s own Creation need? We admit that these are intimidating thoughts for those who feel safer hidden in the crowd scene. But the clues are all around us if we will only leave the restrictions of the crowd scene to see them. One clue: The re-emergence in the consciousness of Mankind of the belief that Planet Earth is an intelligent living being.
The next mental leap is to believe the entire physical universe is an intelligent living being. The leap is less difficult when we come nearer home to recall that our universe is structured from similar energy as is our own physical body. Each of us has a metabolism that plods on, doing its job to the best of its ability. Providing our scintillating intelligence hasn’t interfered in any way, each organ, each corpuscle, each enzyme, each atom, each sub-atomic particle, works at its task, never competing. Unconsciously aiming for complete harmony and balance for the entire metabolism. We seldom have to think about it. Whether we are asleep or awake our metabolism just plods on. We could take the comparison a stage further:
Imagine what would happen if those tiny organelles, called Mitochondria; that inhabit and power each living cell of our body, evolved consciousness, freewill, and individual intelligence. All Hell would break loose in our metabolism. Harmony and balance would be replaced by chaos and misery whilst all of those Mitochondria learnt individually how to use and control their intelligence. Painfully each of us could only wait until each organelle had learnt through hard experience, that Harmony and Balance requires co-operation, but is far better and far more logical than the chaos and selfishness of competition. Our comparison makes sense when we can think of our freewill endowed conscious aware intelligence as a non-physical thing that has an existence separate but amid our physical metabolism.
Planet Earth is the unconscious physical metabolism of slumbering intelligent Mother Earth. The physical universe is the unconscious metabolism of slumbering Mother Universe: Both of who are intelligent enough not to interfere with the unconscious workings of their metabolism. All goes well. All is harmony and Balance, until...until...until the Non-physical life-force in that universe, on that planet or planets, develops and evolves individual human, freewill-endowed aware, conscious Intelligence. Then the chaos and misery begins and will continue until we individually learn the lesson of Co-operation, Harmony and Balance.
Another clue: The process of “thinking” is so effortless we never give it thought. Yet in our lives, without thought nothing happens. To lift the rock takes effort. The thought intention is effort-less. But without the thought the rock stays where it is. The thought of one man or woman can transform the thinking of Mankind. To THINK is to use the power of Creative energy supplied by our Creator. We have the freewill to use that power creatively or destructively. Whichever way we use it, we learn eventually that harmony and balance is the only acceptable way of life. We take the effortlessness of thinking for granted, but we must understand thought to be able to Ascend; after we ascend: To think it is to create it. Before we ascend there is a delay between “thinking” it and creating it whilst the thought cranks it way through the atoms of our brain. The purpose of that delay is to allow us TIME to reconsider the quality of that thought before it becomes an action.
We have mentioned Comfort Zone Thinking. What is it? We all tend to exist in our comfort zone of thought. The zone contains all the thoughts, ideas, and people we are comfortable with. It is familiar and thus effortless: No Brain Strain! But if we choose to enter the realms of, say, Philosophical profundities, or the intricacies of higher mathematics, we would have no choice but to leave our Comfort Zone of thought. Until we got used to the strain of higher thought it would be a struggle to remain on that high level. This illustrates the fact that the focus of your Intelligence can ascend or descend to different levels or wavelengths of thought. You have a comfortable level that takes effort to leave, until you become comfortable on that higher level. Then that higher level becomes your Comfort Zone; until you strive again. The same applies in Meditation. Many people at first find it takes effort simply because they are re-tuning their mind to receive ever-higher wavelengths or levels of thought. So now we must try to comprehend why so much striving and tiring mental effort is required.
Our description of the sub-atomic world earlier was not intended to bore you. It was intended to bring that general knowledge forward in your mind. To help you to realise that despite appearances, each and every one of us is an intelligent energy with a focal point we each regard as ME. Our Creator also is an intelligent energy; no doubt with a ME focal point. The only difference between our Creator and us is that for now we must exist amid energies that are compelled to structure their selves into atoms. On the Creator’s level of existence the energies are not structured into atoms. Yet despite the fact that those atoms of energy build themselves into the bodies we all must clump around in, it does not prevent us from using our creativity, just as our Creator uses creativity. It only limits us. So to understand the striving and effort we must also try to understand what it is that limits us.
Let’s return to that rock for a moment. We all know that no matter how strong our beliefs in the powers of ESP that rock won’t move until someone applies either muscles or machinery to the task. Priests insist that our Creator is non-physical: No muscles, no machinery yet our Creator created everything that exists in non-physical and physical Creation. Consider the vast machinery and huge amounts of powerful energy required for nuclear researchers to artificially create short-lived sub-atomic particles. Go on to recall that our Creator only had to use the power of thought to control energies of self to create. Then we begin to realise how we all have under-estimated the enormous power of thought, the power of our Creator’s thoughts, the power of our thoughts as individuals, and the combined power when Mankind thinks as one.
Below is a reflection of above. What we see here are the same energies; the energies of our Creator. We also see a descending scale of power-levels applied to those energies between our Creator’s level and our physical level. So this gives us a clue as to what limits us, and why we always have to strive to overcome those limits. Here is a familiar example from domestic life as a comparison: To run a vacuum cleaner or an electric oven you would use the full power of mains electricity. But to run your little transistor radio off of main electricity you would need a plug-in transformer, or your radio would burn out. If you examined inside the transformer you would find a continuous coil of wire. The mains full-power follows the wire to your radio. In doing so, it has to work against itself; reducing its power-level all the way down to a level that wouldn’t harm a torch bulb.
So now we must find out what our Creator used as a transformer. A transformer that would safely reduce those energies in power-level, and would also be the mechanism that would convert those reduced energies into spinning atoms. We don’t have to look far. Most of us have heard of the Astral Levels, often known as the Astral Vortex. Instead of mains electricity compelled to follow a coil of wire: High-powered Creator energies would be compelled to form and travel down, a spherical vortex. The energy would work against itself to reach the centre of the vortex where it could only spin and then drop into a lower level. So here we have a bridge between physical and non-physical: The sub-atomic level.
Often our little domestic transformer is versatile enough to offer us a selection of voltages: For example; 12v, 9v, 7.5v, 6v, 4.5, 3v. This allows us to use appliances that can handle these higher voltages. For each of these different settings the coil is tapped into further and further along the coiled wire, because the further we move along the wire the higher the voltage. But as we know, if we use these higher voltages for our 3 volt torch bulb it will burn out. All of this is obvious, but we must apply the same thinking to the function of the Astral Vortex. Those who can accept the concept of reincarnation will know that our individual existences take the form of a pendulum that swings backwards and forwards between Astral and Physical. We must then expand that thought to accept that every form of life force; from the most simple life forms up to and including the human “Me” level: All experience this pendulum existence. When the poor old worn out body of a Human, or a Flea, can no longer carry the Life force, That Life force returns to the Astral for a while.
So now we must bring together three seemingly diverse fields. From the Flea level and below, up to the Human level we see a series of ascending levels each more complex than the one below it. Charles Darwin described these levels in terms of Physical Evolution as the driving force. But atoms don’t care about evolving. As part of a star, or a fingernail or a needle, it’s all the same to atoms. So the driving force must apply to the life force to always evolve higher and higher: With the accompanying need for more complex physical bodies. The second field is that of Spirituality. The ancient eastern belief systems tell us that the Astral Vortex Level we will attain between physical lives is governed by our total spiritual progress gained during our many physical and astral sojourns, to date.
Our third field we have already discussed: The Astral Vortex, with its levels, as a transformer that reduces and converts highest power-level Creator energies into low power-level atoms. Elsewhere we have written at length about the introduction of unconscious life force into the physical universe; via the Astral Vortex. Here we will limit ourselves to only mention that the Life force could have only arrived from the levels where the Creator energies are unreduced in power level. There is no where else they could have originated from. This must mean the unconscious life force could exist in those high power-levels: But to enter the physical existence amid low-power atoms, the power-level of the life force had to be greatly reduced.
Most of this very high power would have been shed in the Fifth Dimension, and would await the eventual Ascension of that life force. We know this as our Higher Self. The rest would be shed as the life force descended the vortex to await thresholds into physical life. At first as simple life forms that would survive or not. If not, the life force would return to the Astral at its lowest power-levels to await another suitable threshold. In this way the life force would commence its long climb. A climb that one-day will allow it to escape from the vortex. But before that day arrives the life force must keep on evolving until it evolved individual, human ”Me” Intelligence. At that point the evolutionary driving force of Mother Earth is replaced by Human Freewill choice. Unlike the animals, Man can choose to evolve or not. But the evolvement then is not of the body, but the “Me” Intelligence.
Now we are able to bring those three fields together: To understand why we have to strive, and what it is that limits us. From our description, it will be obvious that Evolution in the Darwin sense, Spiritual Progress in the Eastern Belief system sense, and increasing our capacity to exist and function on ever-higher power-levels of Creator energies. All three are exactly the same thing. When you enter the silence during your meditation: All mundane thought ignored as far as possible. In fact you are passively opening yourself to allow higher power-levels of Creator energy to flow through your being. Higher power-levels than you are used to normally in your Comfort Zone power-level of thought. Every time you quietly meditate, you are trying to raise your capacity, so that “Me” the focal point of your intelligence can move to higher power-levels.
Everything that is positive and good in our existence, is part of those Creator energies that flow
through us via the vortex. Those energies bring the patterns of everything we know. They also carry the virtues from our Creator to flow through us. So when we feel compassion it is flowing through us, not from us. But we feel it passing through us to where it is needed. It is energy. Negativity is when, in our lack of clear thought and understanding, we block or distort the flow. Spiritual progress is not aiming for goodness. It is more to do with clear thinking that will enable us to understand our ways of thinking and our selves. This is what Lord Sananda meant by “clearing the blockages”, because it is those blockages that will restrict the flow of those energies. You don’t need to try to be virtuous. Understand the blockages and then remove them. Then the virtues with their ever-higher power-levels will lift you clear of the Vortex.
The title of our article is ASCENSION DOUBT BLUES.... Yes it is a long time since the Klein Tapes. No. No one to our knowledge has yet ascended. And yet we all have learnt so much about ourselves. If we are honest, can we truthfully state we have cleared all blockages? We know we couldn’t; not even just from this present life. Then when we contemplate all that accumulated emotional scar tissue from all those past lives, we wonder if we’ll ever make the grade. For all that we’ll sure keep trying. There’s no going back. Where could we go back to?
In our article we have emphasised Intelligence and energies because that is what individually we all are. All are at different stages of development and speeds of learning. All are at different power-level capacities. Each of us is linked to our Higher Self by a trail of energy that we had to leave behind to be able to descend the energy windings of the vortex. We could liken that trail to our personal wire through the transformer and our individual intelligence is the appliance that must always strive to follow that wire: This even though we know the wire increases in energy power-level as we move along it. It can’t be rushed, and only you can do it, in your own timing. It is you who has to live with the discomfort of consciously and determinedly rising above your Comfort Zone level of thought.
For us all there are several stages of learning after we ascend to the Ascended Masters, fifth dimension level, but before we together with our twin aspect ascend through and then above the angelic/teachers’ levels to then achieve the perfection level of our Creator. Meanwhile the energy control achieved by our efforts as individuals would allow us when appropriate to convert our energy into physical form as a means to spiritually uplift those in the physical, still striving to ascend.
We’d like to be able to tell you that the Ascended Masters or ‘Scottie’ from Star Trek will wave a wand or press a button to “Beam you up”. But there is no wand, nor a button. Instead, as it should be, there is UNIQUE YOU FULLY EQUIPPED TO TRIGGER YOUR OWN ASCENSION IF YOU WILL ONLY TRUST YOURSELF ENOUGH NOT TO FEEL YOU MUST RELY ON OTHERS WHO YOU MISTAKENLY THINK, KNOW BETTER THAN YOU DO.
You could regard dumping your Ascension Doubt Blues, as an exercise in blockage clearing.
