Yes, this is an old article! It popped out of my computer when I was trawling for something to do with Druids, and I have no memory of seeing it before whatsoever. Such small miracle events are becoming the norm - and, for me, are an indication of where to focus my attention. The article seems very relevant right now - and is talking about quantum effects without ever using the term! Peter
We would like to share the insight that parallel worlds converge at specific points, and that these are "points of consciousness." It is thereby possible to move from one world to another by shifting the focus of one's consciousness. The model that we are presenting details three particular parallel worlds. There are, undoubtedly, many more realms, but for what we consider practical purposes, we'll just be exploring three of them. We mean "practical" in the sense that each of these three worlds are active by being explored by beings on this planet. They are "The Material World," "The Magical World," and "The Miraculous World."
THE MATERIAL WORLD is the dominant mode in which humanity and other species exist. The motivating or driving forces in this world are called "instincts." Most beings on the planet today base their actions predominantly on information they receive from their survival, sexual, hierarchical, and territorial instincts. Acting on these instructions makes statements to the universe about what is real to the actor. For the most part, these pictures of reality stem from information that is encoded in the DNA of the physical body. These physical-body pictures of reality may imply:
1. I am mortal,
2. I need a mate,
3. I need Personal Power to rule others to some extent,
4. I need to own certain things and control space.
The mental body, too, generates pictures of reality. It creates pictures that say things like, "I must figure it all out"; "I need to be right"; "It's okay to lie if I have a good enough reason"; "I am better than they are"; "He's going to say this, and then I'll say that...." For various reasons, Western civilization has elevated the mental body to a god-like status. There are several methodologies which contend that by controlling the mental body, negative experiences can be transcended, and that we can even obtain enlightenment and Nirvana. The rationale goes: "I create my own reality with my thoughts. Therefore, if I eliminate negative thoughts and only think positive ones, then my life will change for the better." This implies that negative thoughts are the source of one's negative experiences, and the work then becomes to eradicate them - you become your own thought police. And, since "whatever you're fascinated with, you get more of," then being fascinated with negative thoughts just brings more of them. Plus, there is another aspect to consider: "The universe rearranges itself to accommodate your picture of reality." The "think-only-positive- thoughts" strategy assumes that the mental body is the sole composer of one's picture of reality - but it is not. The physical body has its own views and convictions of what is real, as does the emotional body, as well as the spiritual body (the I AM). Here is a simple story to illustrate this.
There was a mighty lion, Jonro, who was born in a small zoo. As he grew, he made it a point to investigate, as best as he could, all of the aspects of the world around him. All of the other lions in this zoo had been born in captivity, as well. Their cages were indoors. One day, another lion was added to the group, but he was captured in the wild. When he spoke of the vast savannas, the tall, spreading trees, the birds in the sky, and the other wonders he knew of, Jonro and the others scoffed. "How could this be!" they would exclaim. We've had plenty of time to investigate this world. We know precisely the limits of our cages, what other kinds of animals there are, where we came from, and how we get fed. What you are telling us is preposterous! Prove it!"
Beings who are exploring the Material world (and taking a stand for its validity) suffer from the illusion of separation from their spirit. This should be obvious - the physical senses cannot detect spirit, which is beyond form. (Consequently, if we are not at one with our spirit, then we cannot be at one with others, because Oneness is an attribute of the spiritual body.) They believe they must fight and struggle to exist, courtesy of the animal instincts. They perceive enemies. Their actions are a series of strategies being played out. They fear lack and condemnation, both which lurk in the background of their consciousness like hungry cheetahs. They need outside authorities to tell them how to reach God and to tell them what is real. (Today, scientists are the priests of "what's real.") When we find ourselves acting out and identifying with any of these pictures of reality and agreeing that they are real, you may say with confidence, "I am living in a Material World." Other experiences of this domain are:
- being caught up in a stream of thought,
- planning sexual strategies,
- mentally rehearsing what you're going to say when you confront someone (which you never end up saying, anyway, when the time comes),
- being sarcastic,
- being obnoxious,
- physically or verbally attacking someone,
- proving you're right (or the other wrong).
- defending or claiming your space
The way that we perceive and define ourselves implies which World we are living in. A few identities that take a stand for the validity of The Material World are: ("I am a...")
- hard worker
- smart person
- honest person
- business person, (or, name a profession)
- awesome/inadequate lover
- responsible person
- funny person
There is nothing wrong with these identities or with exploring the Material World; we all do it to some degree or another; let's face it - we're all in human forms. It's an option that our spirits have chosen to explore, for whatever reason. (The important point is not what we are exploring, but the position that our consciousness is in, in relation to the action.)
THE MAGICAL WORLD is the next step up, dimensionally speaking, from the Material World. When you are living in a Magical World, you are taking a stand for the realities and parameters of the fourth dimension (the astral plane). The link between the third-dimensional physical body and the fourth dimension is the emotional body; the emotional body peruses the astral plane and the mental body does its best to interpret the information (within the limitations of the linear-based functioning ability) that it receives. What follows are some principles, pictures of reality, and implications that are innate in the fourth dimension. When you are, say, standing in line (like at the grocery store) and begin to make psychic contact with others, you can say, "I am living in a Magical World." When you find yourself engaged in any of the following activities, you can say the same.
- trying to use or get "luck,"
- being superstitious,
- having a sexual fantasy,
- psychically attacking someone,
- psychically defending someone,
- fighting for God, the Light, or any other "good" cause (or "bad" cause, if that's your style),
- trying to psychically manipulate another being or situation,
- astral travelling,
- working out your karma,
- trying to be worthy in the eyes of God,
- preaching "the right way" to serve God, spirit, or the mission,
- using magic, either "white" or "black."
A few identities which take a stand for the validity of the Magical World are: ("I am a...")
- magician (druid, witch, enchanter, etc.)
- past-life regressionist
- warrior of the Light
- devil/demon worshipper
- religious person
The Magical World, compared to the Material World, is much more exciting. There are many unusual powers and phenomena to experience there. It has a unique and somewhat hypnotic allure. Many beings feel liberated as they move from the limitations of The Material World into the expansiveness of The Magical World. For others, however, this world of shifting forms, gray alliances, and non-linear logic is scary. Additionally, the rules of The Material don't mean much in The Magical; for those who need to "be in control" and "know how it really is," in a third-dimensional sense, this metamorphic reality with its uncharted territories (including purgatories and hells) are better left alone. We are at a time in human history in which the veils are rapidly being lifted between the two Worlds. This is frightening to those who want The Material World to be the safe, predictable place it has always (seemed to have) been. As The Magical World becomes increasingly accessible, The Material World becomes more destabilized. This is becoming increasingly apparent in the area of relationships. In many (but not all) cases, the scenario goes something like this: One of the partners begins to explore and experience the validity of the Magical World. The Material World-based partner, either unable or unwilling to explore The Magical probability, uses "scientific, common-sense logic" to explain why The Magical World doesn't exist, or just sarcastically dismisses the partner's interest. (A more clever response is this: He plays along with the Magically-inclined partners' "flights of fantasy and imagination." A wiser yet alternative: He supports the Magically-inclined partner's exploration.) But neither "common-sense logic" - the common logic of the five senses - nor sarcasm can negate another person's experiences. As the lure and exploration of The Magical World increases, there becomes less and less for the couple to talk about. And when it comes time for parting, the defender of the logical world finds himself alone with his cold facts, wondering what went wrong. Another outcome of this scenario is that the Magically-inclined partner halts or slows her progress so as not to hurt the partner, hoping that she can "bring him along." (It may be helpful to realize that all relationships are in the hands of spirit: spirit puts us together and separates us in accordance with the Divine Plan. This may sound harsh to the emotional body, but when grasped from a cosmic perspective, it is really a blessing.)
Relationships based upon the parameters of The Magical World can be enchanting; all sorts of magical events may transpire. The partner's face can morph from their usual appearance to that of a completely different person. Astral sex is "out of this world"; plus there are opportunities to play out unfulfilled Material and Magical roles with each other, sometimes reaching into past lives.
At this point in history, the next natural step for many beings is to move from the exploration of The Material World to the exploration of The Magical World. This requires letting go of rigid concepts which the linear mind holds as real. For those who have identified themselves with their mental and physical bodies, this, perhaps, is one of the biggest stumbling blocks to exploring the interesting realm of The Magical World.
The probabilities of THE MIRACULOUS WORLD are just now presenting themselves to humanity. Dimensionally, it is the next step up from The Magical World. Go outside on some clear night. Look up in the sky and catch a glimpse of the stars. There are more stars than we can imagine, with even more planets racing around them. And this is only the third-dimensional aspect that we are seeing. Look at your hand; move your fingers. To make all of this exist and work takes forces and a form of intelligence that is not possible to imagine. And this is only the third-dimensional aspect of our existence. Although this may sound oversimplified, it does seem to point to one thing: the universe is a miraculous place. If it can create all of this, it can do just about any thing it wants. (For more detailed information on the miraculous nature of the universe, read the Summer '94 issue of "The Federation Flash.")
In The Miraculous World, linear or "horizontal" logic (which uses past experience and one's beliefs to determine what is real), is not what directs one's actions; nor are one's feelings, regardless of how powerful they are. Instead, "vertical" logic (information received directly from one's spirit), provides the data from which to act. This is spontaneous revelation and is the key to consciously living in the Eternal Now. (You are, in essence, channelling your spirit.)
When we find ourselves acting out and identifying with the following, you can say, "I am living in A Miraculous World."
- you experience the awesome reality of living in the faith that you are in the hands of your spirit,
- you perceive everything as "okay" - even if it's sometimes unpleasant - because you know that spirit is directing your course,
- you see your identity as a Divine being unfold, - your reliance on Material and Magical perceptions is superseded by your reliance on Miraculous perceptions,
- you perceive other's pictures of reality as just that - their pictures - and do not take their projections personally,
- you realize that, in many areas of your life and especially your mission, the walls of time/space are not a limitation,
- you live with the understanding that by remaining open and empty, the universe can manifest miracles through you,
- you love everyone and know that they are part of the Divine Whole,
- you are grateful to be alive,
- you see your Vision of Heaven on Earth manifesting,
- you share your Vision, cosmic identity, and insights freely and naturally,
- miracles are a given.
A few identities (or ways to function) which take a stand for the validity of The Miraculous World are: ("I am a...")
- angelic/extraterrestrial/other-dimensional master
- divine/cosmic/holy being
- code master
- grid/template master
- energy-flow director
- receiver/transmitter for your off-planet/other-dimensional team,
- transdimensional trail blazer
- divine fool
Moving from The Magical World to The Miraculous World is similar to moving from The Material to The Magical. There is a barrier that separates these Worlds; the fear of the unknown, inherent in the human form (and reinforced by the Dark Forces), makes beings hesitate to explore new worlds. On the other hand, many beings don't explore other worlds because they are just plain ignorant of their existence: Spirit has dictated that the veils in their consciousness remain in place - they can do no more. It is interesting to note that in The Miraculous World, the mental, emotional, and physical bodies are used by the universe to achieve its ends. In The Material World, the universe is used by these bodies to achieve their ends.
The World in which we perceive ourselves, along with our identity, are major components of our picture of reality. And the universe rearranges itself to accommodate our picture of reality. If we're using Material World criteria for the basis of our discernment, it will look as if everyone is living in The Material World. If we use The Magical World as our criteria, it will appear as if everyone is living in either The Material World or The Magical World (or probably some combination of the two). If we use the criteria of The Miraculous World, it will appear as if everyone is living in The Material, Magical, or Miraculous World (or probably some combination of the three). This is because beings who are intensely exploring the Material World cannot include The Magical World in their picture of reality; yet, those who are exploring The Magical can include The Material. Similarly, those who are intensely exploring The Magical World cannot include The Miraculous World in their picture of reality; yet, those who are exploring The Miraculous can include The Magical. This suggests a hierarchical order based on
1. Our ability to accept ever-expanding probabilities, and
2. Our capacity to love.
In our version of the Ascension scenario, the Planetary Consciousness (and many other cosmic forces) is preparing a new, energetic environment for its inhabitants to live in. The foundations are already being laid. Its frequency will sustain only Miraculous World experiences. Once fully in place and operational, the option of exploring The Material and Magical Worlds will no longer be available, at least on this planetary body. Living in The Miraculous World will no longer be debated as to whether it is "possible" or "impossible"; it will just be "the way that it is."
We would like to conclude with an insight to the adage, "Seek and ye shall find." In The Material World, one seeks retirement and grows old; in The Magical World, one seeks enlightenment and grows wiser; in The Miraculous World, one seeks nothing and grows Lighter. As we all tread the homeward path, we will explore many realms. And one day, we will all realize that all experiences are simply different ways in which the All-That-Is perceives itself.
Our task is to recognise our divinity as an immortal spirit: and to consciously manifest that divinity at the core of this physical incarnation.
You said these precious words just happened to come up to the surface 'by chance', and you had no recollection of having read them before....
Well I am so happy you did post them. I remember when I first read this post over a year ago, the timing was perfect and it answered some questions for me. It helped define into words what I perhaps knew in a more abstract way.
Often I am asked by those close to me, ie friends or even partner, (and not by strangers who are more accepting) to justify that which I might say, do, feel or know....and because 'it' has come naturally to me, has come to me through Spirit, through the vertical logic not horizontal, and in a way of receiving information I am well accustomed to, there is not always 'proof' in the reality they are used to, based on their own belief systems.
We literally are worlds apart, talking a different language!!
Yes, asked to prove something which, to me, simply IS!!! And I can find myself stumped for words, surprised that they should even ask or have a problem with knowing!! And then left feeling frustrated!
I hunted this article down again today, as I needed to read it again, and once again remind myself of the beautiful message it holds.
It has helped me to remember that in future, when in the same lower-frequency type of conversation, I should not feel disappointed if I dont find the right words to satisfy a Material World-only dweller, nor frustrated with them for not being able to 'see'.
I can either invite them to open up to the Magical World at least, or leave them be or behind, and accept them as they are.
Nothing is permanent.
Horse to Water.
Everyone has their own Journey, and although I might wish for them, I am not responsible for their Growth.
2013 ~ What beauty. End of the Old, Beginning of the New.
On this wonderful Space Ship they call Planet Earth.
