"5th Ray Focus!"

The Key Focus and Service work of the 5th Ray Ashram and 5th Sphere of Life is to Focus every moment on what one Wants from a Situation,The Thoughts Feelings and Experiences One Wants to Create,The States inner and outer that One Wants to experience.It is the Higher Octave of the 3rd Ray so it is a Mental Ray that allows one the ability to think consistently,This Laser Focus allows one to Know anything one sets on Mind to,it is therefor the Ray of the Scientist and all Great Discoveries in Science have come through this Laser Focus.All Knowledge from Nature has been obtained this Way and The Great Mother Herself gives her secrets Forth to those that Directs the Fires of Mind Focus into the Deepths of Bosom,Those who direct the Spiritual Mental Emotional and Physical Energies into the Deepths of the Mother Receive the Blessings Gifts Bounty Abundance Knowledge Peace and Perfection that is the Mothers Gifts.This Relates esoterically to the Dual SPhere of Scorpio and Taurus.
The Key Pracrtice of the 5th Ray is to focus ones attention and energy on manifesting Ones Goals and aspirations by Firing the Sub Conscious Mind with the Conscious Mind the Impressions of the Super Conscious Mind at all times and in all situations.This requires Constant Dilligence for the Instant One is not causing ones reality One is being Caused by Reality,The Instant One is not being a Master One is becoming a Victim.The Instant one is not Focusing on what they want they are focusing on what they dont want.So we can see the Requirements for Mastery of the 5th Ray which is basically unbroken Dilligent Unceasing focus on ones Manifestation process and then taking action to that end.Action is the Key here to and after taking action one should review ones actions During the Yin Cycle(Night Time and New Moon).During the Yang Cycle(Day Time and Full Moon) One should be unceasing in ones Focus attention on ones goals desires and aspirations then take action to the attainment Realization Integration and Demonstration of those Ideals on the Earthly Plane.All Practices should be around these keys as well as focusing the Energy and Mind at the Throat Chakra and the Space Element.One should also request to attune to Master Hillarion and the 5th Ray Ashram and to be bi located to that Ashram all day and Night.By this way one is moving into the Upper Trigram of the 5th SPhere of Life,by Ones “Un Relenting Focused attention on ones Manifestation Process!” Namaste Dear Friends!

What Does it Mean to "Believe in G-d"(By Mais Freindman

What Does it Mean to "Believe in G-d"?
Tevet 23, 5771 · December 30, 2010
By Manis Friedman
Even the honest atheist will agree that a first cause, an original being, must have preceded the universe. This original cause or source is what so humbled Einstein, although he incorrectly described it as a religious experience. The questions of faith begin with how we understand this First Cause, its nature, and its relationship to us and to the universe.
The statement, "I believe there is a G-d" is meaningless. Faith is not the ability to imagine that which does not exist. Faith is finding relevance in that which is transcendent. To believe in G-d, then, means not that you're of the opinion that He exists, but that you have found relevance in Him. When a person says "I believe in G-d" what s/he really means is "G-d is significant in my life".
In discussing our relationship with G-d, the question we first need to ask, is, Who cares? In what way is He relevant?
For some people, G-d is relevant because they are concerned with the origins of existence. For others, G-d is relevant because they are concerned with the afterlife, and faith is a prerequisite for getting to heaven. Finally, for others, G-d is relevant because they believe that life has purpose.
In Judaism, particularly in Chassidism, the interest in G-d comes from the conviction that life has meaning. The recurring question in Chassidic thought is: Why is a soul sent into the world to suffer in a physical body, for 80, 90 years? We know there is a purpose, that G-d is the author of that purpose, and we want to know and understand it.
Chabad Chassidism teaches that the mind is the soul's capacity to detect logic, the heart is the soul's capacity to respond negatively or positively. The respective functions of the mind, heart and soul are often confused.
One who lives by his heart exclusively, trusts only what he feels. One who lives by his mind exclusively, trusts only what fits. But neither of these tells you the truth. The mind demands that logic be trusted, the heart demands that the emotions be trusted. Yet both can be mistaken. They do not reveal inherent truth. For that, we turn to the soul, the neshamah. Because the soul is a part of the Divine -- and that is truth. When we have faith, when we find relevance in G-d, we are trusting that instinct in the soul that tells us that G-d is the purpose of life.
In pragmatic terms, the mind, the heart and the soul must each fulfill their function: when we know all that can be known, when we come to the edge of knowledge and logic itself tells us that we have reached its outer limits and it cannot handle what lay beyond this point, faith enters. Where the mind is no longer adequate, the soul responds to truth. This is faith.
This faith, this soul response, is necessary in the fulfillment of that category of mitzvot known as chukim, supra-rational laws, laws that do not subscribe to reason.
If someone has difficulties with these particular commandments, that is an indication that they may be relying on the mind and heart at the expense of their own capacity to react to truth -- the expression of their soul. When a Jew fulfills a mitzvah before they've fully intellectualized it, they are allowing their neshamah to respond to truth.
It is an ability that often needs to be cultivated. The sixth Lubavitcher Rebbe, Rabbi Yosef Yitzchak Schneersohn (1880-1950), recounts in his memoirs that as a small child, he once asked his father to explain to him why we follow a particular custom with regard to the saying of Modeh Ani upon waking in the morning. Instead of giving the answer, the Rebbe's father led him to an elderly, simple Jew, and asked the Jew, "Why do you say Modeh Ani in this particular way?" To which the man responded, "Because that's how my father taught me to do it." The Rebbe's father might have just as easily given him the rational reason for the custom. Instead, he saw it as an opportunity to exercise his ability to respond with faith.
This is why in Chabad-Lubavitch it is our approach to invite a Jew -- even one who claims not to believe -- to do a mitzvah, before we engage them in a discussion on faith. Because in consideration of the existence of the soul, we can assume that we don't have to convince people of life's Divine purpose. We just have to get them started, and with each mitzvah they do, their neshama asserts itself more, and questions become answered of themselves. By way of analogy, if a woman's maternal instinct appears to be absent, you don't argue the philosophy of motherhood with her. Just put the baby in her lap and her maternal response will emerge.
The relevance we find in Him will differ from person to person. Being that He is everything, people will experience G-d in every possible way. He is the G-d of Abraham and Isaac, of Benevolence and Might. And it is also true, as G-d says, "I am known according to my deeds." Some will know Him as a rewarding G-d, others as a G-d who punishes, who provides, who saves, who enlightens, who inspires, and so on and on..
In the beginning, G-d revealed Himself as the creator, master, king -- all very impersonal roles. In Halachah (Torah law) G-d reveals His laws, but doesn't allow His "personal feelings" to show. Later, in the Kabbalah, G-d makes Himself vulnerable; He shares intimate details. He is humanized in a two-way relationship. So the Halachist has great respect for the wisdom of the commandments, while the mystic sees G-d as taking the mitzvot personally. When G-d says, "don't cut down fruit trees," if we were sensitive we would not only hear a commandment, but we'd see something about G-d. Kabbalah reveals that something. The halachot are the details; Kabbalah reads between the lines.
Kabbalah gives us a very different perspective on G-d's "anthropomorphic" behavior. It reminds us that Torah comes to teach us about G-d, and that expressions such as "G-d spoke," "G-d's hand," "G-d's anger," need to be considered from Torah's or G-d's perspective. We are not the reference point for G-d's behavior; G-d should serve as a reference for our behavior. He created the world. Speech, hand, anger, jealousy -- these are all His creations, these are all Divine rights. Our speech, our hand, our anger, our jealousy -- these are only metaphors for the real thing, not the other way around. When we read that "G-d raises His hand" and splits the sea, we need to measure our own hand against that. When we raise it, what happens? Nothing. We learn then that we are not quite as powerful as G-d. When we read that G-d gets angry and punishes because He created a world with a Divine purpose, and that purpose is frustrated, we ought to measure our own anger against that. What have we created? Nothing. We may not, therefore, get angry and punish as G-d does. Considering G-d's anger and other attributes in this way brings us to a humbling recognition. Only when our anger or jealousy is an expression of moral indignation does it reflect true, Divine qualities. Only then, may we exercise such expressions. Whatever truth there is in anything in us, it is the extent to which we embody what it is He tells us about Himself.

"The New Moon Spell"

Welcome to the Rhythmic Lizard Moon of the Noos-Letter
With this edition of the Noos-letter of the Foundation for the Law of Time, we enter the Rhythmic Lizard Moon of Equality. This is the sixth moon of the Planetary Service Wavespell. Since the purpose of the annual 13 Moon wavespell is to determine how to live our lives in accordance with the Earth in a way that brings about a greater state of peace, during this moon we learn a fundamental lesson for creating peace: Equality.
Watch the movement of this moon's totem animal, the lizard: It moves with perfect rhythmic equality. In the pulsar cosmology of the wavespell, the sixth position or tone, corresponding to the sixth moon, belongs to the first dimension life pulsar. This position is where, like the lizard, we extend the rhythm of our action and command equality! What does this mean?
First of all, in our mind when we equalize our thoughts and bring ourselves to a state of equanimity, then nothing can really disturb us. All thoughts have equal value; each disappears just as it appeared. What excited us a moment ago is replaced by another thought that appears to occupy our mind. When we do not value one thought or life activity over another then we are commanding equality. Doing the dishes is as important as writing that next song. When we command equality we are balancing our life.
When we treat everyone as equals (in lak'ech!), knowing everyone to have the same ultimate soul potential as ourselves, and not favoring anyone whether they believe as we do or not, then we are commanding equality. When we command equality we are taking a positive step toward the noosphere. In the noosphere the equalization of thought and life brings about universal telepathy, which can only occur when we are at peace with ourselves and no one is deemed mentally, spiritually or morally inferior or superior to anyone else.
This sixth Moon is the second (of three) in the year coded by the same solar seal as codes the annual wavespell. Just as the first day of the Magnetic Moon was Red Overtone Moon, so the first day of the Rhythmic Moon is the Red Lunar Moon. In the Telektonon prophecy of Pacal Votan, it says: "When the Lunar Moon overflows its banks, the G-7 will be no more." Since the G-7 refers to the world banking system, this is an advisory regarding the continuing failure of the world monetary system. What next after Ireland? Take note.
So welcome again to the Noos-letter of the Foundation for the Law of Time! Our goal is to anticipate the noosphere by expanding our minds into the universal time of synchronization. Thank you for participating in this great cosmic process!
Moon at a Glance
Synchronicity follows a set of universal principles based on a mathematical matrix. This matrix is the primary structure that connects all events, people and reality as we know it. The more we tune into this matrix, the more we experience the synchronic order. This is the purpose of the 13 Moon, 28-day calendar. The following are some examples of how the synchronic order can be read on a day-to-day basis. If you are new to this please see the 13 Moon tutorial.
Star Traveler's Synchronicities
Red Overtone Moon Year
Rhythmic Moon (Moon 6 of the 13 Moons)
13 December 2010 - 9 January 2011
In the Rhythmic Moon we ask ourselves: How can I extend my equality to others? This moon we take the self-empowerment we generated in the Overtone Moon and extend it to others. The lizard is the sixth totem animal in the 13 Moon calendar. The Lizard is a master dreamer and shapeshifter. It is attuned to the subtle vibrations of the Earth making it able to detect what needs balancing. Lizard is also associated with the power of change and new beginnings, presenting us the opportunity to gracefully shed old patterns and embody new ones.
(13 December 2010) Rhythmic 1, Red Lunar Moon
Today is the first day of the Rhythmic Lizard Moon of Equality and the last day of the Red Galactic Spectrum, Season of Life Force (65-day cycle). A day for endings and beginnings - a great day for purification and assessing the new patterns you wish to install into your life.
14 December 2010) Rhythmic 2, White Electric Dog
Entry into the White Galactic Spectrum, Season of Love (65-day cycle). This is the Moon of equality: Consider that the average yearly income of the richest 20% of people in the world is about 50 times greater than the yearly income of the poorest 20% of people. Let's envision the power of love and compassion to eradicate inequality and poverty forever.

"How many observe Christ's birthday! How few, His precepts!" (Benjamin Franklin). "Do unto others as you would have them do unto you." (Jesus) This is similar to the Mayan term, In Lak'ech (I am another yourself). On the 13 Moon calendar, Christmas Day is always the 13th day of the Moon. Christ was the 13th among the 12 disciples. On this day in 1758 Halley's Comet was first sighted.

(30 Dec 2010) Rhythmic 18, White Rhythmic Worldbridger
Magic Turtle Day (Tone of the Moon, and Tone of the kin are both Rhythmic). How can we equalize and balance our perceptions to stay attuned to the reality of the here-and-now while also extending a continuing consciousness of the higher galactic orders of cosmic time? Through balance we attain the strength to change - as Albert Einstein (Kin 260) put it: "You cannot solve a problem with the same consciousness that created it."
(1 January 2011) Rhythmic 20, Yellow Galactic Star
Gregorian New Year. The Star corresponds to the planet Venus bearing the archetype of the Artist. For more information on the galactic archetypes see Book of the Timespace, Cosmic History Chronicles Volume V.
(4 January 2011) Rhythmic 23, Blue Spectral Monkey
New Moon. Partial solar eclipse, preceded two weeks earlier by the total lunar eclipse (10 Dec 2010). This set of solar eclipses repeats approximately every 177 days (sign of Galactic Earth). Solar birthday of mathematician and astronomer Sir Isaac Newton (1642), who discovered gravity. Galactic signature of Jose Arguelles/Valum Votan who discovered the Law of Time (1989): "Who owns your time owns your mind; own your own time and know your own mind."
(9 January 2011) Rhythmic 28, Yellow Electric Warrior
Rainbow Bridge Meditation day. Each of us is a rainbow. "When we speak of "rebuilding the rainbow bridge" we mean putting the two halves of the brain once more into harmony with each other, unifying the flow of our intuition with our rational thinking." (Dhyani Ywahoo).

"Checklist of 10 things you can do to move out of Mass Consciousness"

Checklist of Ten things you can do to Move out of Mass Consciousness

1. You must strive for integration, balance, synthesis and full spectrum prism consciousness in all ways and all things. Mass consciousness is exactly the opposite: it is fragmented and imbalanced.

2. You must have discipline and structure in life.

3. You must develop an incredible work ethic.

4. The way out of mass consciousness is through denial and affirmation: denying the consciousness of the masses and affirming the group consciousness of the New Group of World Servers.

5. You must claim your identity to the level above you instead of the level you are living on.

6. You must live your Spiritual ideals.

7. You must be in integrity within yourself: If you learn a thing force yourself to practice that thing.

8. You must be 100% determined to not let anything stop you from your mission and vision in life.

9. Rest when needed and embrace the horizontal plane of life, but see these things in the context of your Spiritual path.

10. If you cannot run up the mountain, walk! If you cannot walk, crawl!

The Integrated Ascended Master is 100% committed to step out of mass consciousness because he realizes that he is not born to fit in – he is born to stand out! He chooses to stand out of mass consciousness, and instead of following the path of the masses, he forges his own path and leaves a trail for others to follow!

"Going with the Flow"By Dr Robert Anthony

We often talk about "going with the flow". Why? Because that is
what you were created to do! Think about this...everything that
has been created has a natural flow and when it operates in that
flow there is no struggle.
Water does not struggle to flow.
Grass does not struggle to grow.
Wind does not struggle to blow.
Rain does not struggle to fall.
Sun does not struggle to shine.
Earth does not struggle to rotate.
Flowers do not struggle to bloom.
What does this tell us? Struggle is unnatural. Why sentence
ourselves to a life of struggle when it is clearly unnatural?
In short, struggle is a "learned response" that has been taught to
us by those who are in a trance of struggle. This "learned
response" has become an UNCONSCIOUS HABITUAL PATTERN.
Awareness is the first step to making any change in our lives. If
you are aware that struggle is not "normal" and that it is a
choice not to live your life paddling upstream.
Focus your attention on this; NOTHING YOU WANT IS UPSTREAM!
Everything you want is DOWNSTREAM. This means you do not have to
struggle (paddle up stream) to have it. All you need to do is put
your boat in the stream and let it carry you. In fact, you don't
need to paddle at all. Even if your boat is pointed in the wrong
direction (upstream), as soon as you stop paddling the stream will
turn your boat around without any effort on your part. Then you
will be going in the direction where everything you desire takes
It is a simple but powerful metaphor. Give up the struggle once
and for all. Let go of the paddles, trust that Source Energy will
guide you downstream to your desire and start enjoying the trip.
It's a heck of a lot easier!
Today will bring you a new awareness, a lesson or a manifestation
that you are making progress - IF YOU LOOK FOR IT! No matter how
large or small, please record it in your Evidence Journal. It will
only take a few moments and will AUTOMATICALLY put you in the Flow.
Truly Caring for Your Success!

The December 5, 2010 The Lunar Month of December 5, 2010 - January 4, 2011 Self Mastery, Personal Responsibility, & Passageways of Change

The December 5, 2010
The Lunar Month of
December 5, 2010 - January 4, 2011
Self Mastery, Personal Responsibility,
& Passageways of Change
The New Moon of December 5 begins the last lunar cycle of 2010. Conjoining the Centaur Pholus, the New Moon resides in sidereal Scorpio and the constellation of Ophiuchus. It conjoins Sarin, the shoulder of Hercules and Restaban of Draco, eye of the Dragon. This area of the zodiak is about self mastery and being personally responsible for our freedom and well-being, and aiding others in their pursuit of the same.
Several events occur in this lunar cycle, including a Mercury Retrograde and the start of a new 116-day Earth Mercury synodic cycle, with a theme defined by the stars in early sidereal Gemini. Juno, asteroid of colleagues, partnerships and mutual cooperation, opposes Jupiter and Uranus, which are about to make their final conjunction on the following New Moon. Juno will also conjoin Makemake, one of our newly discovered planets, bringing attention to the administration of resources in partnerships.
The Full Moon, occurring on the December 21, 2010 Solstice, produces a Total Solar Eclipse in early sidereal Gemini, on the "Gate of Man" of Earth's Precessional Cross; conjoining Betelgeuse of Orion and Menkalinan of Auriga. The eclipse is visible throughout North America and western South America. Our Solstice Full Moon Eclipse also creates a dynamic Grand Square with Juno opposite Jupiter-Uranus. The entire Solstice Grand Square Total Eclipse Full Moon creates a primary activation of Earth's Precessional Cross--our sacred geometry of evolutionary change. This produces a dynamic and potent passageway--a challenge for radical action to change and shift into a new octave of experience--especially regarding relationships and partnerships of all types.
These are just a few of many events occurring in this lunar cycle. The Monthly Lunar Planner explores the details of these events and more, the underlying cycles upon which we evolve and which guide our daily lives--based in star-level astronomical astrology and synodic astrology.

the planetary cycles ahead, visit The Lunar Planner.
The stars would not be in the heavens
if we were meant to walk in darkness.

Today's Tanya Lesson

Today's Tanya Lesson
Likutei Amarim,
כי השכל שבנפש המשכלת כשמתבונן ומעמיק מאד בגדולת ה׳
For when the intellect in the rational soul deeply contemplates and immerses itself exceedingly in the greatness of G-d,
איך הוא ממלא כל עלמי
how He fills all worlds,
i.e., how G-d animates all of creation with an immanent divine light and life-force (just as the soul fills and gives life to every part of the body) — a life-force which clothes itself in and unifies itself with each creature, and which adapts itself to the individual needs of that creature,
וסובב כל עלמין
and when one further contemplates how He encompasses all worlds,1
He illuminates the worlds with a G-dly light and life-force that is far beyond the capacity of the worlds to receive internally; rather, it affects them in an encompassing manner.
וכולא קמיה כלא חשיב
Or, when one contemplates another aspect of G-d’s greatness, namely, how in His presence all creation is considered as naught, —2
נולדה ונתעוררה מדת יראת הרוממות במוחו ומחשבתו
Upon contemplating and immersing oneself in any of the above-mentioned aspects of G-d’s greatness the middah of awe for the Divine Majesty will be born and aroused in one’s mind and thought,
לירא ולהתבושש מגדולתו יתברך, שאין לה סוף ותכלית
to fear and be humble before His blessed greatness, which is without end or limit,
i.e., the fear will be coupled and permeated with humility, as in the awe one feels in the presence of a very wise or righteous person, which expresses one’s bashfulness and humility before him,
ופחד ה׳ בלבו
and there will also be born a dread of G-d in his heart.
This explains how contemplating G-d’s greatness arouses a fear and dread of Him — an expression of the attribute of Gevurah.
ושוב יתלהב לבו באהבה עזה כרשפי אש, בחשיקה וחפיצה ותשוקה ונפש שוקקה
Next his contemplation will give birth to the attribute of Chesed, expressed as a love of G-d, so that his heart will glow with an intense love of G-d like fiery flames, with a passion, desire and longing, and a yearning soul
לגדולת אין סוף ברוך הוא
(each of these expressions — “fiery flames,” “passion”, and so on, denoting a different grade of love) toward the greatness of the blessed Ein Sof.
והיא כלות הנפש, כדכתיב: נכספה וגם כלתה נפשי וגו׳, וכתיב: צמאה נפשי לאלקים וגו׳, וכתיב צמאה לך נפשי וגו׳
This is what is meant by the term kalot hanefesh (“a consuming passion of the soul”), as it is written:3 “My soul longs [for You]; indeed, it faints…,” and4 “My soul thirsts for G-d …,” and again,5 “My soul thirsts for You.”
So intense can one’s love become that the soul risks being consumed in the fiery flames of its love of G-d, and totally leaving the body. In fact, were one not to forestall this danger, and contain this great love, he would indeed expire. But he restrains himself so that his soul will remain clothed in his body — the only condition in which it is possible for him to fulfill his G-d-given mission.
והצמאון הוא מיסוד האש שבנפש האלקית
This loving thirst is derived from the element of Fire in the divine soul.
וכמו שכתבו הטבעיים, וכן הוא בע׳ חיים, שיסוד האש הוא בלב
As students of natural science affirm, and so it is in Etz Chayim, the element of Fire is in the heart,
ומקור המים והליחות מהמוח
while the source of [the element of] Water and moisture is in the brain,
וכמו שכתוב בע׳ חיים שער נ׳, שהיא בחינת חכמה שנקרא מים שבנפש האלקית
As explained in Etz Chayim, Portal 50, [the source of the element of Water] is the level of Chochmah which is called “the water of the divine soul.”
Inasmuch as the heart is the seat of the emotions — of warmth — we say that it is the abode of the element of Fire. In contrast, the brain — being the seat of “cold” intellect, calm and measured intelligence — is the source of the element of Water. One creadily observe this by comparing the demeanor of an emotional person to that of an intellectual.
So, too, with the intellect and emotions of the divine soul: the heat and passion of one’s love of G-d is expressed in the heart, an ultimately leading him to expire in kalot hanefesh. The mind, however, remains cool. This capacity of the intellect for calm appraisal of a situation leads it to comprehend that G-d’s intent is that the soul remain clothed in the body so that it will be able to fulfill the Torah and its commandments. This realization cools the fiery ardor of the heart and thus prevents the soul from actually expiring in kalot hanefesh.
The Alter Rebbe’s discussion of the birth of middot from the intellect has thus far been centered on two emotions: love and fear of G-d. What of the others?
ושאר המדות כולן הן ענפי היראה והאהבה ותולדותיהן, כמו שכתוב במקום אחר
The rest of the remaining five middot are all offshoots and derivatives of fear and love (and obviously they, too, are born of Chochmah and Binah), as is explained elsewhere.
All the above explains why Chochmah and Binah are called the “father” and “mother” of the middot, for it is through the contemplation exercised by Chochmah and Binah that the middot are born. Chochmah is called the “father”. Just as the drop of semen which derives from the father’s brain comprises, in concentrated and concealed form, all the organs of the child’s body, similarly the seminal point of Chochmah contains, in a concealed manner, all the details of an idea, as explained above. And just as it is the mother who reveals the child’s organs from their concealed state, and brings them to a state of completion, similarly, Binah reveals, expands and elucidates the concept in all its details.
But what of Daat, the third of the intellectual faculties? Daat too, as explained earlier, is a “mother” and source of middot. What does it contribute to their birth? This issue is now addressed.
והדעת הוא מלשון: והאדם ידע את חוה, והוא לשון התקשרות והתחברות
Daat, whose etymology may be found in the verse,6 “And Adam knew (ידע) Eve,” implies attachment and union.
שמקשר דעתו בקשר אמי׳ וחזק מאד, ויתקע מחשבתו בחוזק, בגדולת אין סוף ברוך הוא, ואינו מסיח דעתו
(As applied to Daat of the divine soul, this means) binding one’s mind with a very firm, strong bond and firmly fixing one’s thought on the greatness of the blessed Ein Sof, without diverting his mind from it (i.e., the subject matter conceived in Chochmah and developed in Binah is absorbed in the mind by concentration, Daat.)
כי אף מי שהוא חכם ונבון בגדולת אין סוף ברוך הוא, הנה אם לא יקשר דעתו ויתקע מחשבתו בחוזק ובהתמדה
For even one who is wise (by utilizing his faculty of Chochmah) and understanding (by exercising his faculty of Binah) in the greatness of the blessed Ein Sof, yet, unless he applies his Daat and fixes his thought firmly and diligently on his understanding of G-d’s greatness,
לא יוליד בנפשו יראה ואהבה אמיתית, כי אם דמיונות שוא
he will not produce in his soul true fear and love, but only vain fancies.
He will only imagine that he fears G-d and loves Him. True fear and love are attained only by way of Daat.
ועל כן הדעת הוא קיום המדות וחיותן
Thus, Daat provides the substance and vitality of the middot (and is therefore termed a “mother” of the middot, another parent side by side with Chochmah and Binah).
והוא כולל חסד וגבורה, פירוש: אהבה וענפיה ויראה וענפיה
It comprises Chesed and Gevurah; that is to say, love with those other middot that are its offshoots, and fear with its offshoots.

"The 12 Labours of Heracles!"

Hercules was the Roman name for the greatest hero of Greek mythology -- Heracles. Like most authentic heroes, Heracles had a god as one of his parents, being the son of the supreme deity Zeus and a mortal woman. Zeus's queen Hera was jealous of Heracles, and when he was still an infant she sent two snakes to kill him in his crib. Heracles was found prattling delighted baby talk, a strangled serpent in each hand.
The Labors
When he had come of age and already proved himself an unerring marksman with a bow and arrow, a champion wrestler and the possessor of superhuman strength, Heracles was driven mad by Hera. In a frenzy, he killed his own children. To atone for this crime, he was sentenced to perform a series of tasks, or "Labors", for his cousin Eurystheus, the king of Tiryns and Mycenae. By rights, Hercules should have been king himself, but Hera had tricked her husband Zeus into crowning Eurystheus instead.
Labor One: The Nemean Lion
As his first Labor, Heracles was challenged to kill the Nemean lion. This was no easy feat, for the beast's parentage was supernatural and it was more of a monster than an ordinary lion. Its skin could not be penetrated by spears or arrows. Heracles blocked off the entrances to the lion's cave, crawled into the close confines where it would have to fight face to face and throttled it to death with his bare hands. Ever afterwards he wore the lion's skin as a cloak and its gaping jaws as a helmet.
Labor Two: The Hydra
King Eurystheus was so afraid of his heroic cousin that when he saw him coming with the Nemean lion on his shoulder, he hid in a storage jar. From this shelter he issued the order for the next Labor. Heracles was to seek out and destroy the monstrous and many-headed Hydra. The mythmakers agree that the Hydra lived in the swamps of Lerna, but they seem to have had trouble counting its heads. Some said that the Hydra had eight or nine, while others claimed as many as ten thousand. All agreed, however, that as soon as one head was beaten down or chopped off, two more grew in its place.
Labor Two: The Hydra (continued)
To make matters worse, the Hydra's very breath was lethal. Even smelling its footprints was enough to kill an ordinary mortal. Fortunately, Heracles was no ordinary mortal. He sought out the monster in its lair and brought it out into the open with flaming arrows. But now the fight went in the Hydra's favor. It twined its many heads around the hero and tried to trip him up. It called on an ally, a huge crab that also lived in the swamp. The crab bit Heracles in the heel and further impeded his attack. Heracles was on the verge of failure when he remembered his nephew, Iolaus, the son of his twin brother Iphicles.Iolaus, who had driven Heracles to Lerna in a chariot, looked on in anxiety as his uncle became entangled in the Hydra's snaky heads. Finally he could bear it no longer. In response to his uncle's shouts, he grabbed a burning torch and dashed into the fray. Now, as soon as Heracles cut off one of the Hydra's heads, Iolaus was there to sear the wounded neck with flame. This kept further heads from sprouting. Heracles cut off the heads one by one, with Iolaus cauterizing the wounds. Finally Heracles lopped off the one head that was supposedly immortal and buried it deep beneath a rock.
Labor Three: the Cerynitian Hind
The third Labor was the capture of the Cerynitian hind. Though a female deer, this fleet-footed beast had golden horns. It was sacred to Artemis, goddess of the hunt, so Heracles dared not wound it. He hunted it for an entire year before running it down on the banks of the River Ladon in Arcadia. Taking careful aim with his bow, he fired an arrow between the tendons and bones of the two forelegs, pinning it down without drawing blood. All the same, Artemis was displeased, but Heracles dodged her wrath by blaming his taskmaster Eurystheus.

Labor Four: the Erymanthian Boar
The fourth Labor took Heracles back to Arcadia in quest of an enormous boar, which he was challenged to bring back alive. While tracking it down he stopped to visit the centaur Pholus. This creature -- half-horse, half-man -- was examining one of the hero's arrows when he accidentally dropped it on his foot. Because it had been soaked in poisonous Hydra venom, Pholus succumbed immediately. Heracles finally located the boar on Mount Erymanthus and managed to drive it into a snowbank, immobilizing it. Flinging it up onto his shoulder, he carried it back to Eurystheus, who cowered as usual in his storage jar.
Labor Five: The Augean Stables
Eurystheus was very pleased with himself for dreaming up the next Labor, which he was sure would humiliate his heroic cousin. Heracles was to clean out the stables of King Augeas in a single day. Augeas possessed vast herds of cattle which had deposited their manure in such quantity over the years that a thick aroma hung over the entire Peloponnesus. Instead of employing a shovel and a basket as Eurystheus imagined, Heracles diverted two rivers through the stableyard and got the job done without getting dirty. But because he had demanded payment of Augeas, Eurystheus refused to count this as a Labor.

Labor Six: The Stymphalian Birds
The sixth Labor pitted Heracles against the Stymphalian birds, who inhabited a marsh near Lake Stymphalus in Arcadia. The sources differ as to whether these birds feasted on human flesh, killed men by shooting them with feathers of brass or merely constituted a nuisance because of their number. Heracles could not approach the birds to fight them - the ground was too swampy to bear his weight and too mucky to wade through. Finally he resorted to some castanets given to him by the goddess Athena. By making a racket with these, he caused the birds to take wing. And once they were in the air, he brought them down by the dozens with his arrows.
Labor Seven: the Cretan Bull
Queen Pasiphae of Crete had been inspired by a vengeful god to fall in love with a bull, with the result that the Minotaur was born -- a monster half-man and half-bull that haunted the Labyrinth of King Minos. Pasiphae's husband was understandably eager to be rid of the bull, which was also ravaging the Cretan countryside, so Hercules was assigned the task as his seventh Labor. Although the beast belched flames, the hero overpowered it and shipped it back to the mainland. It ended up near Athens, where it became the duty of another hero, Theseus, to deal with it once more.
Labor Eight: the Mares of Diomedes
Next Heracles was instructed to bring Eurystheus the mares of Diomedes. These horses dined on the flesh of travelers who made the mistake of accepting Diomedes' hospitality. In one version of the myth, Heracles pacified the beasts by feeding them their own master. In another, they satisfied their appetites on the hero's squire, a young man named Abderus. In any case, Heracles soon rounded them up and herded them down to sea, where he embarked them for Tiryns. Once he had shown them to Eurystheus, he released them. They were eventually eaten by wild animals on Mount Olympus.
Labor Nine: Hippolyte's Belt
The ninth Labor took Heracles to the land of the Amazons, to retrieve the belt of their queen for Eurystheus' daughter. The Amazons were a race of warrior women, great archers who had invented the art of fighting from horseback. Heracles recruited a number of heroes to accompany him on this expedition, among them Theseus. As it turned out, the Amazon queen, Hippolyte, willingly gave Hercules her belt, but Hera was not about to let the hero get off so easily. The goddess stirred up the Amazons with a rumor that the Greeks had captured their queen, and a great battle ensued. Heracles made off with the belt, and Theseus kidnapped an Amazon princess.
Labor Ten: the Cattle of Geryon
In creating monsters and formidable foes, the Greek mythmakers used a simple technique of multiplication. Thus Geryon, the owner of some famous cattle that Heracles was now instructed to steal, had three heads and/or three separate bodies from the waist down. His watchdog, Orthrus, had only two heads. This Labor took place somewhere in the country we know as Spain. The hound Orthrus rushed at Heracles as he was making off with the cattle, and the hero killed him with a single blow from the wooden club which he customarily carried. Geryon was dispatched as well, and Heracles drove the herd back to Greece, taking a wrong turn along the way and passing through Italy.
Labor Eleven: the Apples of the Hesperides
The Hesperides were nymphs entrusted by the goddess Hera with certain apples which she had received as a wedding present. These were kept in a grove surrounded by a high wall and guarded by Ladon, a many-headed dragon. The grove was located in the far-western mountains named for Atlas, one of the Titans or first generation of gods. Atlas had sided with one of his brothers in a war against Zeus. In punishment, he was compelled to support the weight of the heavens by means of a pillar on his shoulders. Heracles, in quest of the apples, had been told that he would never get the them without the aid of Atlas.
Labor Eleven: the Apples of the Hesperides (concluded)
The Titan was only too happy to oblige. He told the hero to hold the pillar while he went to retrieve the fruit. But first Heracles had to kill the dragon by means of an arrow over the garden wall. Atlas soon returned with the apples but now realized how nice it was not to have to strain for eternity keeping heaven and earth apart. Heracles wondered if Atlas would mind taking back the pillar just long enough for him to fetch a cushion for his shoulder. The Titan obliged and Heracles strolled off, neglecting to return.
Labor Twelve: the Capture of Cerberus
As his final Labor, Heracles was instructed to bring the hellhound Cerberus up from Hades, the kingdom of the dead. The first barrier to the soul's journey beyond the grave was the most famous river of the Underworld, the Styx. Here the newly dead congregated as insubstantial shades, mere wraiths of their former selves, awaiting passage in the ferryboat of Charon the Boatman. Charon wouldn't take anyone across unless they met two conditions. Firstly, they had to pay a bribe in the form of a coin under the corpse's tongue. And secondly, they had to be dead. Heracles met neither condition, a circumstance which aggravated Charon's natural grouchiness.But Heracles simply glowered so fiercely that Charon meekly conveyed him across the Styx. The greater challenge was Cerberus, who had razor teeth, three (or maybe fifty) heads, a venomous snake for a tail and another swarm of snakes growing out of his back. These lashed at Heracles while Cerberus lunged for a purchase on his throat. Fortunately, the hero was wearing his trusty lion's skin, which was impenetrable by anything short of a thunderbolt from Zeus. Heracles eventually choked Cerberus into submission and dragged him to Tiryns, where he received due credit for this final Labor.
Heracles had a great many other adventures, in after years as well as in between his Labors. It was poisonous Hydra venom that eventually brought about his demise. He had allowed a centaur to ferry his wife Deianara across a river, and the centaur had attacked her on the other side. Heracles killed him with an arrow, but before he died he told Deinara to keep some of his blood for a love potion. Deinara used some on Heracles' tunic to keep him faithful, little realizing that it had been poisoned with Hydra venom from the arrow. Heracles donned the tunic and died in agony.
Heracles was the only hero to become a full-fledged god upon his demise, but even in his case there was his mortal aspect to be dealt with. By virtue of his spectacular achievements, even by heroic standards, he was given a home on Mount Olympus and a goddess for a wife. But part of him had come not from his father Zeus but from his mortal mother Alcmene, and that part was sent to the Underworld. As a phantasm it eternally roams the Elysian Fields in the company of other heroes.

The Mind and Beyond,By Tzvi Freeman

The Mind and Beyond
By Tzvi Freeman
Today's Western society is built on the foundations of two cultures: the Jewish and the Greek. Both treasured the human mind.
The Greeks reached the pinnacle of intellect at their time. But the experience of Mount Sinai had taught the Jew that there is something greater than the human mind. There is a G-d, indescribable and inexplicable. And, therefore, a world could not be built on human reason alone.
The idea annoyed the Greeks to no end. While they appreciated the wisdom of the Torah, they demanded that the Jews abandon the notion that it was something Divine.
Ethics, to an ancient Greek, meant that which is right in the eyes of society. To a Jew, it means that which is right in the eyes of G-d. The difference is crucial: Ethics built solely on the convenience of the time can produce a society where human beings are treated as numbers in a computer or where the central value is the accumulation of wealth. At its extreme, it can produce a Stalinist Russia or a Nazi Germany.
A healthy mind is one that recognizes that there will always be wonder, because G-d is beyond the human mind. And a healthy society is a balanced one, whose soil nurtures human accomplishment but whose bedrock is the ethical standard of an Eternal Being.

Gratitude's Full Frequency Spectrum by Simeon Chiron

We are multi-dimensional beings. Multi-dimensional in the sense that we have the complete set of frequencies which makes up our being spread out across a vast spectrum which spans many dimensions of reality, all of them actually.
The other day as I was meditating with the energy of gratitude in the spirit of the current Thanksgiving holiday in the U.S.A (also celebrated in Canada, The Netherlands, Grenada and Liberia), I had this distinct sense of how the energy of gratitude was also spread out across the full spectrum of frequencies that comprised our beingness as well.
Being naturally curious I started exploring how the energy and consciousness of gratitude could be experienced at these different frequencies. An expanded awareness began to emerge regarding gratitude that helps to complete the hologram of awareness I am in when experiencing this energy now.
One of the things I noticed immediately was that the higher in frequency I explored, the more the energy of gratitude seemed to be most easily experienced for subtler and subtler things. In other words, when our consciousness is focused on the lower frequency spectrum of the physical plane then our gratitude is felt most profoundly and authentically in relationship to things of the physical plane.
When our consciousness becomes intently focused upon higher frequency aspects and dimensions of reality, then our gratitude will be most strongly experienced in regards to things that are germane to that plane of existence. However, it also became apparent as I continued my explorations that the things of the physical plane were not being excluded, they were being enveloped within the higher frequency states of gratitude and fully included, but with much more included as well.
Its easy to know what types of things we can be grateful for on the physical plane of reality. You may be wondering at this point, however, what kind of things we might feel gratitude for at higher planes of reality. What I experienced at the upper end of the frequency spectrum was sheer gratitude and appreciation for the very fact of my existence as a pure energy form. I felt the Great Love that gave me life as a being and there was such an immense flow of gratitude that opened up within me that it filled me to overflowing, and very easily.
There were many gradients of things to be grateful for between that most expanded state and the physical plane of reality as well. For example I found myself experiencing deep gratitude for the presence of other beings in the universe, for the amazing thing we call the universe, for the energy of love at so many different levels of reality, for the presence of other beings in this world even though they are not all awake to who they really are, and so on.
When I had completed this journey through the spectrum of gratitude's frequencies I had a deeper sense of fulfilment within this energy than I had ever experienced before. It made the gratitude I felt for things at the physical plane level so much more profound as well.
I now have the realization that our efforts towards truly feeling gratitude for the things we have in this world reality is greatly enhanced by taking a little time to consciously move through the higher frequency bands of our being so we can experience gratitude (and everything else) at those levels too. Engaging this brings more of your multi-dimensional self present in the now, and with that comes a greater power to be experienced in everything.
It was my deep desire to be able to find the time to share this with all of you so that if it had not occurred to you previously to open up to the full spectrum of frequencies gratitude has to offer, you might be inspired to do so now.
Therefore this is my Thanksgiving message and gift to you, and I hope you take a few moments to fully experience the energy of gratitude throughout the entire spectrum of your multi-dimensional being too! As you expand out into your higher aspects, you will come to the place where we are all one!
Have a Blessed Thanksgiving Holiday,
Simeon Chiron

The Letter of the Foundation for the Law of Time!

With this fourth edition of the Noos-letter of the Foundation for the Law of Time, we enter the Overtone Peacock Moon of Radiance. This is the fifth moon of the Planetary Service Wavespell. As we are learning, the purpose of the annual 13 Moon wavespell is to determine how to live our lives in accordance with the Earth in a way that brings about a greater state of peace on behalf of our planet.
In the self-existing cosmology of the wavespell - the fourth dimensional form constant of cosmic time - there are four principle articulations: The two gates, the first and thirteenth tones, and the two towers, the fifth and the ninth tones. In the fifth moon we enter the first of these towers, the Tower of Overtone Radiance. What does this mean?
In music it is the fifth tone that brings the overtone of the higher harmonies. Also the primary musical scale is the pentatonic, which is an octave that consists of five tones. When we listen, for instance to Tibetan overtone chanting, we can hear the higher harmonies coming through when a particular frequency is toned. This brings about an etheric feeling that is not of this world.
This fifth Moon - the Overtone - is also qualified by the term radiance, which visually and metaphorically, like the overtone in music, speaks of a higher dimensional quality that has the ability of radiating an extra-special power and luminosity. The aura, for instance is the radiance of the inner being. The peacock is the totem animal for this Moon, because like the Quetzal bird of Guatemala, its feathers are colored by a radiant iridescence that seems unworldly in its beauty.
These reflections speak to the underlying formulation of the law of time: Energy factored by time equals art. The peacock is an obvious example of a living art form, as actually we all are. When we enter the noosphere - the next great era of terrestrial evolution, we will transform our weapons into artistic tools, and each one of us will have the opportunity to become overtone channels of the higher mind, making art in whatever we do. This will create a living peace on Earth.
So welcome again to the Noos-letter of the Foundation for the Law of Time! Our goal is to anticipate the noosphere by expanding our minds into the universal time of synchronization. Thank you for participating in this great cosmic process!

Red Overtone Moon Year

Overtone Moon (Moon 5 of the 13 Moons)
15 November 2010 - 12 December 2010
In the Overtone Moon of Radiance we take command and gather resources and determine how to best empower ourselves for the highest good of all. Peacock is the fifth totem animal of the 13 Moons, a royal bird whose ostentatious plumage denotes a command of beauty pride and elegance.
This is a great moon to confidently move forward and unite with others. In the northern hemisphere autumn cools the Earth in preparation for its winter slumber - align with this energy to cultivate your strong inner bonds in your community (and in yourself) through heart circles, and ceremonies for Earth healing. In the southern hemisphere spring is going strong - great energy to align with for outdoor peace demonstrations, celebrations, group gardening and art projects.

"To see things Change in the World we must Change the way we See things!"

The Integrated Ascended Master realizes that the world we see is a projection of our own thinking. So what we see in the world is determined by our own thinking.
There is a way of thinking that can give us happiness and inner peace regardless of what is going on in the outer world. This way of thinking is called Spiritual/ Christ/ Buddha/ Krishna/ Moses/ Mohammed/ Mighty I AM Presence thinking.
It is a way of thinking that helps us to transcend the lower self and identify with our Higher Self or God Self. It is a way of thinking that transcends fear with love, illusion with truth, and separation with oneness.
And as we change our thinking from fear to love we will automatically change the way we see things, because essentially we each are seeing our own thoughts.
And since our thinking translates into action, as we change our thinking and what we see in the world, we will naturally change the way we act in our daily life.
And as we change the way we act in our daily life, we will be able to step into the foot steps of the great Mahatma Gandhi and live his great advice that we must BE the change we wish to SEE in the world.
And as we each ARE the change we wish to see in the world, we will create a new beautiful world. And as we create this new wonderful world, we shall create Heaven on Earth for everyone!
The Integrated Ascended Master is ever eager to change the way he sees things so he may ultimately learn to see the world through the eyes of God!
So let it be written. So let it be done.

This Day also rules the 3rd Kingdom which is of course the Beloved Animal Kingdom.The Animals bring us all so much Unconditional Love(Domesticated Animals) where the Wild animals teach us about the importance of Instincts and Freedom within the natural world.We are considered as Elder Brothers and Sisters to the Animal Kingdom and as such we are the guardians and protectors of these most beutiful Creatures and Incarnations of the Eternal I am the Oneself of all.On this day we make a decisive decision to develop a right relationship to the Animal Kingdom,taking time perhaps to learn and commune with the animals that we might have in our company.
The 3rd Initiation of course deals with Mental Mastery.Are we the Cause of all our thoughts at all times or do we allow other people outside energy and situations to change and direct our Mind?If we don’t own the 100% power of our Mind we give it away and loose our mental mastery!We must at all times think with our own Christ Mind and be the absolute Master over the SPhere of the Mind that we can be a Master of the Sphere of the Emotions and the Body,the 2 Bodies directly bellow the Mental Body.Next we move into Mastery of the Spiritual Body!Namaste!

The Birth of a New Earth!Universal Completion!

Birth of the New World

The new world of 2012 is not something that simply will drop down on us ready-made from the sky. It is something that is created step by step through the various phases, so called days and nights, of the Mayan calendar that we are living through also at the current time and requires our active and conscious participation in the process as co-creators of this new world.

In stark contrast to the media focus on a singular date and the end of the world that this purportedly will bring, the only existing inscription about the end of the calendar from ancient Mayan times speaks of the simultaneous manifestation of 9 different cosmic forces.

The Mayan calendar is a description of the exact rhythm with which these cosmic forces are manifesting and so the study of this is critical for anyone seriously wanting to use it for understanding the cosmic plan and how the birth of a new world will take place.

—Carl Johan Calleman, author: The Mayan Calendar and the Transformation of Consciousness, Stockholm, 11 Ahau (March 7, 2010).

Why Your Participation is Vital

"Cruise into 2012—Surfing the 9th Wave" is for all those who are ready to authentically say: "I intend to manifest Unity Consciousness on this planet." Without such intention, it is doubtful whether there will ever be such a shift on this planet either individually or collectively.

That is why your presence on this cruise is so vital, for, as the Hopis say, "We are the ones that we have been waiting for."

Hope for the future lies exactly in learning to surf on this 9th wave and so transcending, rather than getting caught up in all the dualities and conflicts of lower Underworlds.

This is the last chance that human beings will have to truly align themselves with the cosmic plan. It is now or never. The final descent of Bolon Yookte, the 9 Waves (9 Lords of Time or 9 Underworlds, or whatever name you prefer) is upon us and it is not without reason that the number 9 is sacred in so many spiritual traditions. 9 is the destiny number of humanity and so it will be your own choice whether you want to be part of co-creating this destiny.

What Is the 9th Wave?
Sean David Morton

The 9th Wave is the capstone of the energy that all started with the first Harmonic Convergence in August of 1987. According to the Mayan calendar, and the time code of the Great Pyramid of Giza, on November 30, 1985 (all set in motion the same day Haley's Comet was visible from earth in its 76-year trek) that "Powerful spiritual influence would begin to irradiate the enlightened, bringing them closer to spiritual and material perfection."

The Great Pyramid also says that the energy from 1985 was the capstone of the last energy pulse that was begun in 1933. That was when the spiritual power of the Christ Force would begin to physically manifest, literally "coming in the clouds" into Earth's atmosphere and begin to fundamentally change the DNA of humanity. And, of course, the bad guys, the Dark Lords the Children of Light have warred with down through time, knowing this date had decided, "Oh well, let's just put Hitler, Hirohito, Churchill and Roosevelt in charge and see how much chaos they can create to stop the Children of Light from moving upwards."

But it's okay. It was all part of the plan. If you truly believe that we are all part of God and were there at the beginning of time, and will be there at its end, and that we are all unbreakable, unkillable, immortal beings of light and that there is truly no death, than all these tyrants of the 20th Century can be looked upon as just particularly harsh teachers with lessons that we needed to learn as we continue our evolution from the eternal down through our sojourn in what we call Time and Space.

So beginning November 30, 1985, the Christ-Force began to come from the clouds and physically incarnate as the next generation. This is where people talk about where the Blue kids starting coming in, like what Edgar Cayce spoke of, as opposed to the Indigo Children that started coming in around 2000. Now with the 2010 Conscious Convergence this is truly when the children of the "Violet Ray" will start to be born.

In 1987, on August 17, 18, and 19, it was a functional DNA activation of the Quetzalcoatl energy of which hundreds of thousands of people around the world, millions actually, started gathering to activate this energy.

Jose Arguelles (who wrote The Mayan Factor), said that if they could just get 144,000 people together on those days in August 1987, which is 12 times 12,000--that if these people could come together in peace and love and harmony for just these three days, that you could pull all the dire prophecies (of what was about to become the sixth world) down by a factor of 10.

We now have the opportunity to pull down the dire predictions of 2012. You'll see all the worst-case scenarios of coming disasters in movies coming from a magnetic shift or a polar flip and all this other stuff. But we have an opportunity now…right now… with a very small group of people, to stop all that from happening. We can pull all the rest of the dire prophecies down by a factor of 100, which is why this time of Universal Hyperactivation and this particular date in time and space is so powerful. The Universal Activation barrels towards the end of the Galactic week, coming into the Universal week, a 234-day period, which is the final culmination of 16.4 billion years of human spiritual evolution, according to the Mayan calendar. So everything is coming together right now.

So that's why the 234 Days Hyperactivation is so important. This is why it's the next big thing. It's really the last crux point we have to really make a difference because from there on out the roller coaster starts to go down the hill, so to speak.

There are a few more dates coming up in 2012. There's the total solar eclipse on May 20th, with the penumbra directly over Mount Shasta, which oddly enough was where on of the biggest gatherings was for the Harmonic Convergence in 1987. There was fantastic phenomenon everywhere around the mountain at that time. Everything from UFOS and apparitions of angelic beings, to a bizarre violet tube of light coming from one woman's television set. These events made news all around the world.

The Venus Transit is 16 days later on June 4, 2012, which the Mayans thought was a more important date than the end of time on December 21st. That final Venus transit, where Venus has its face towards us, is going to be the final activation of the feminine strand in the Quetzalcoatl DNA change. There was one in 2004 and the next set of transits will not happen again for another 171 years.

What Does This All Mean?
Sean David Morton

The Mayans' 25,000 works on medicine, on astronomy, on astrology, on the future, basically had all the knowledge we could ever want on the Universe. Then the Catholics and the Spanish came in and said, "No one should have access to this," and they burned it. One priest saved four calendars, thinking there was no way a simple calendar could be a threat. These became known as the Dresden Codex eclipse table and Venus table, the Paris Codex zodiac, the Grolier Codex and the Madrid Codex. They have the names of the libraries in which they are stored.

If you combine what Carl Johan Calleman and Jose Arguelles did--and Jose did the Yeomen's work on this because he really broke down the Dresden Codex. Then, if you take the latter 20th century dates, and you combine the time code of the Great Pyramid of Giza, and you take Tiotiwakan, and then take Chichen Itza, Tikal, and Palenque, and put them all together, it's a litany of the Apocalypse.

I guess you could say with the Apocalypse, we're moving out of the age of the Occult--things being hidden, now coming to light and being brought out. So the Occult Age is over and we are now moving back to the age of being co-creators with God.

We started out being co-creators with God. We then created the physical world around us, and got so entertained by it, that we started worshipping form, and it's like "Oh this is the lord God-coffee cup." Then the priests realized that if we went back to Universal co-creation, there's no money in that; there's no profit in it. No real power over others. They surrounded the ability to co-create reality and hid the true power from the people which then entered us into the Occult Age where things, specifically all the true power, is hidden. Then the Apocalypse comes and all that is hidden is revealed. The word "apocalypse" means, "That which is hidden is revealed." Just as "abracadabra" means "As I speak it so shall it be" in Arabic.

"Apocalypse!" An age in which the hidden is revealed. Which does mean the end of the world for some people. Those who keep true power from the people.

Here's how the dates play out:

November 30, 1985--the same date Haley's comet was visible from Earth, the Great Pyramid says, "Powerful spiritual influences will begin to irradiate the enlightened bringing them closer to spiritual and material perfection."

It goes back to another prophecy about November 1933, in which the Christ would begin to come in the clouds. That the Christos would begin to change the atmosphere and change the DNA of the planet itself, and from 1933 the Christ would become a denser and denser form of Christ consciousness. I think Hitler was a subversion of that Christ consciousness, "Okay, you want to have Christ consciousness? Let's see how you're doing while we're killing everyone on the planet. Putting them in camps and doing all kinds of horrible things to the world."

In 1985, the implication was that the Christ consciousness would become physical, and people born after 1985 would actually be the first race Edgar Casey called the Blue Kids. The Blue Vibration, then the Indigo vibration, then the Violet vibration. The Blue Kids would start coming in at 1985, the Indigos in 2000, and the Violets would probably come in 2012 or so.

Then you jump forward to 1987, so for two years this energy, the physical manifestation of people becoming more perfected, more spiritual beings, begins to percolate. Jose Arguelles writes his book The Mayan Factor. So August 17, 18 and 19 of 1987 is now the beginning of the return of Quetzalquatl, the sacred twins of male and female. But what they miss, and I think probably why the Catholics burned all the Mayan stuff, is because they had a whole series of very specific predictions about the return of Quetzalquatl, the bearded white man, now being a woman, and that it was the feminine aspect of Quetzalquatl that would return.

But the key to this is the Venus Transit, because the Venus Transits of 2004 and again in 2012 represents once again the reactivation of the feminine strand of the twin serpent of Quetzalquatl. Jose Arguelles said if they could get only 144,000 people to greet the dawn on the 17th, 18th and 19th of August in 1987 that you would pull down all the coming dire Mayan prophecies by a factor of 10.

The idea is that if we can get the same kind of Activation again, during the 234-day Activation period, we would be able to pull down coming destruction of Earth, by either fire or water, by a factor of 100.

The next date in the Mayan calendar was January 21, 1999, which begins the 13 year cycle of the final Galactic week of 7 days and 6 nights which begins in 1999 and ends, depending on who you listen to, either October 28, 2011, the end of the Aztec Sun disk, which I think is the sperm hitting the egg, the conceptual moment of whatever's going to come, with the later birth date on Dec. 21, 2012.

Then December 21, 22, 23, 2012, when the sun hits 27º Sagittarius and begins its journey along the cosmic rift--begins it--when the sun aligns with the ball court at Palenque, and when the sun aligns with the ball court it looks like a child's head crowning as it comes down the birth canal. The October 28, 2011 date is the conceiving point, the December 21 date is the birth.

If we go back to the timeline of the Pyramid of Giza, February 21, 1999 is the beginning of the Exodus generation, the last days, so to speak, and the coming of a 40-year cycle going from 1999 to 2039--to October 31, 2039, to be precise.

But it's also interesting to note where the building material of the Great Pyramid changes. The outer pyramid is made of sandstone. The inner pyramid is made out of polished base grey granite, and the inner core, the Kings chamber (which represents ascension, conquest of death, and the Messianic Age) is red granite, which is where the Holy of Holies always is in every temple in all of Egypt. You always have those three materials representing the masses, the lay people, and the High Priests. Those three are always found in all the Egyptian temples because red granite has a massively high quartz content and carries sound especially well.

The theory is the Egyptians would take obelisks of red granite and lay them on certain plates and strike them with large mallets and sound would create an anti-gravitic vibration that would allow them to put these massive things up.

February 21, 1999 begins the Great Exodus. From that point on, everything we do becomes sacred; everything we do becomes the holy preparation of the coming of the next Messiah.

Then we move into the days and nights of the various calendars. Now we are in the Galactic week, whereas the days and nights of the Planetary Week took about 20 years apiece, these are taking exactly a year apiece, and between March 9, 2011 and October 28, 2011, we are going to hit the final Universal Hyperactivation, which takes us to the temple at the top of Tikal, which is the Universal Underworld, in which we achieve the culmination of 16.4 billion years of Evolution.

The Hopi glyph on the Second Mesa says, "This is your last chance before the chaos, to drop down to the lower path, the path of God, the path closer to the earth and to your true spirit." To reconnect your head to your body. We are right at that point right now.

And you have all the other astronomical alignments. When you get into 2012 things start to get really hairy, because you have the May 20th alignment, the eclipse over Mount Shasta, the partial eclipse over Chitzen Itza--the first alignment in 26,000 years of the Pleiades, the Sun, and the Moon in a straight line. Then 16 days later you have the Venus Transit. You have the crop circle that shows that in that 16-day period, some massive shift or change is going to happen in the world. The Venus Transit happens June 4, 2012. Venus always has one face to the Earth when it transits across the sun, meaning that all the power of the feminine is going to be amplified with all the power of the sun, which is a massive force of reintegration with the quantum right side of the brain.

Rockin' in the Cosmic Cradle by Simeon Chiron

Rockin' in the Cosmic Cradle
by Simeon Chiron
We just entered into the initial harmonic activation of the 13th Galactic Heaven on 11/3/10. On 11/6/10 we have a New Moon, a cycle of new beginnings. In less than a week we go through the 11:11 harmonic time gate and star gate. On 12/21/2010 we go through the Solar Galactic Gate of Winter Solstice. On March 9th, 2011 we enter into the 1st Heaven of the ninth and final Universal Wave of consciousness evolution.
We are currently within a "Cosmic Cradle." This cradle is formed by the "time-space" existing between the newly activated harmonics of the 13th Galactic Heaven and the initial activation of the 1st Universal Heaven next year.
The current New Moon, the 11:11 time gate and stargate, and Winter Solstice 2010 are celestial dynamics that will set our cradle to gently rocking to nurture and comfort our Cosmic Spirits as they naturally transform our older paradigm human elements in order to complete a solid foundational basis for our reality emerging more fully within a new universal consciousness next year.
We can make this transition more smoothly by simply being aware of some of the celestial and cosmic influences playing out in our experience. With our awareness holding the more expanded perspective, we have a platform to better understand what we are experiencing, and why, at a human level. That alone is a significantly helpful factor because it empowers us with a perspective that is much more resonant with our Divine Self and therefore facilitates an alignment between all dimensional aspects of our being.
The primary cosmic evolutionary harmonics set the overall parameters that everything else operates within. The 13th Galactic Heaven and the 1st Universal Heaven are the primary harmonics. The lunar and solar cycles and even 11:11 are operating within the primary harmonics identified by the ancient Mayans.
For the dynamics we are currently dealing with it thus looks like this: we are going through a major balancing of polarity, a de-polarization if you will, which seeks to perfect the Cosmic Dance of God/Goddess within us and our world. This is in preparation for entering the 1st Universal Heaven next year.
Within this overall context, we also have the New Moon, influences from Chiron and Neptune, and the 11:11 energetics now coming online to facilitate the larger evolutionary processes defined by the 13th Galactic Heaven. So let's have a look at what is happening to understand better how the perfected Cosmic Dance of God/Goddess is being facilitated astrologically over the next week or so:
From Lynn Hayes' Skywatch Newsletter:
The New Moon in Scorpio occurs on November 6th. Scorpio is the sign of passion and intensity and the Truth that exists where life and death meet. This New Moon offers us an opportunity to face the darkness and discover our own Truth - to strip ourselves of any falseness and pledge to live in Truth. New Moons begin a new cycle, and in Scorpio the challenge is to confront our emotional fears without becoming enmeshed in the story. Mercury is very active during the New Moon, suggesting the need to remain objective without becoming detached.
From Cayelin Castell's Celestial Timings Newsletter:
November begins with Chiron and Neptune getting ready for their direct station on November 5 and 6... Neptune initiates from the Celestial World in ways that are designed to increase our intuition or inner knowing. Chiron initiates from the Underworld where we encounter shadow elements such as any unresolved woundings and fears as well as our greatest talents and gifts for the purpose of transforming them into the medicine we carry.
Chiron's nearly 5 year journey through Aquarius has had the intent to transform past wounds that have limited our experience of our true divine nature. Neptune provides access to the field of all possibilities or the field of dreams.
The perceptual and experiential polarities being facilitated into greater balance in the current astrology are thus: truth/falsity, life/death, emotionality/objectivity, intuition/logic or right/left brain, wounds/talents or gifts, human/divine nature, mundane reality/dreams.
By correlating our current experience to these dynamics we can greatly expand our awareness into the Cosmic Plane of Awareness so that our cradle continues being gently rocked by our Cosmic Spirit. If we lose sight of the bigger picture, the state of chaos in our world could rock our cradle wildly and that would not feel so nurturing, comforting and beneficial for the seeds of universal consciousness growing within us.
If that happens, do not judge yourself or blame or judge anything or anyone else. Simply adjust your perceptual awareness back into the bigger picture and by focusing on being gently rocked in the Cosmic Cradle by your Cosmic Spirit. You are that Cosmic Spirit...
Using the Heart Breathing technique I teach in my e-Book entitled "Heart Breathing: Breathing for Balance, Higher Awareness, Higher Consciousness and Ascension" is also very helpful for both maintaining balance and for reaching it whenever we may find ourselves caught up in the little picture of duality where all the chaos resides.

2011 and 2012

2011 and 2012
two end-dates
I have a dream that the New Earth will have rapturists, and they'll vastly outnumber the terrorists. The rapturists will be performance artists with a conscience . . . charismatic improvisers who love to spring fun surprises. They'll commit unexpected interventions and unscheduled spectacles that delight hordes of strangers. - Rob Brezsny
To write about the Mayan Calendar is not easy. To have a full command of this vast subject (with conflicting reports coming from different sources) is a tall order. But somehow I seem to find myself trying to grapple with it. The only way to begin such a task is to become a ridiculously chutzpah'd rapturist, at least for a few moments. So, here are a few of the concepts that I think are important regarding the Mayan Calendar. With this humble attempt I hope to illuminate part of the meaning of the 7th Day.
First, we need to address the subject of the two end-dates of the Mayan Calendar that are being discussed in Western culture right now. During the Classical Era - c. 250 CE to 900 CE (the height of the Mayan culture) - mind-boggling time calculations were calculated by Mayan calendric wizards that far surpass any time calculations in modern times (and they worked without computers or telescopes). These Mayan Time-Shamans calculated eclipses in our current day to within minutes of accuracy. They built pyramids that were encoded with their astronomical knowledge of time and time cycles. To this day, there are Day Keepers in the hills of Guatemala who keep the ancient count of days stretching back thousands of years.
One of the key concepts of the Mayan Calendar is known as The Long Count. The Long Count began on August 11, 3114 BC (some scholars say August 13th) and it will end on December 21, 2012. The beginning of the Long Count ushered in the historical era (when we began keeping written records), the rise and fall of empires, the development of civilization, the building of cities, and the flourishing of cultures.
With the development of the Long Count, the Mayan Time Shamans looked ahead into the future and calculated that the Earth would align with the Galactic Center on December 21, 2012. (Modern science tells us the exact alignment occurred in 1998, but when you consider the length of time within which they were calculating, they were really only about 15 minutes off:)They ended their calendar, which spanned thousands of years, on this date - December 21, 2012. It was kind of strange to have a calendar END all of sudden; and so many people have projected Armageddon-like ideas onto what 2012 means. I won't go into that here. I just want to point out that the 2012 end-date of the Mayan Calendar is steeped in an esteemed heritage, based on centuries of indigenous caretaking. It cannot be ignored.
The other end-date currently debated in the Western world is the end-date proposed by Carl Calleman, a Swedish scientist. Barbara Hand Clow - a Cherokee Elder, brilliant astrologer, and one of my beloved teachers - has stated that she believes Calleman 'broke the code' of the Mayan Calendar.
Calleman has calculated an end-date for the Mayan Calendar of October 28, 2011. I will describe his theories in some detail in the next section of this newsletter. There is some contention between the various Mayan end-date scholars concerning Calleman's "audacity" in changing the end-date. He is after all from SWEDEN (i.e. not indigenous). His system has much validity, however; and if you have any curiosity about this subject you may want to research the debate further.
As for me, I embrace both end-dates; they both have significance. For me, the 2011 end-date has more to do with the mapped-out evolution of consciousness as described below; and the 2012 end-date has more to do with an epochal celestial alignment with the Galactic Center - that signals the Turning of the Ages and the end of a 26,000-year cycle. Both are valid, and I am ok honoring both of them. Walking that polarity tight-rope - which seems to be what we are all asked to do in all areas lately.
Carl Calleman's Theory
time-wave thoughts & time-compression
from the mind of god
The mind-boggling events triggered by the culmination of the Mayan Calendar Underworlds make it hard to think clearly because of rapid time acceleration. - Barbara Hand Clow
Every 18 months for the last decade, the world has doubled the data it pushes to you. Twice as much email, twice as many friend requests, twice as many sites to check, twice as many devices. When does your mind lose the ability to keep up? Then what happens? Is it already happening? - Seth Godin
It feels like we are literally having the fear squeezed out of us. That makes sense because we don't want to take it with us past 2012. - author unknown
This section contains information from Carl Calleman's theories, either articulated by Calleman himself, or explained by Ian Lungold or Barbara Hand Clow (both of whom are proponents of Calleman's system). This information is not the traditional indigenous Mayan perspective, which espouses the 2012 end-date (taught in many books by the brilliant lifelong Mayan scholar, John Major Jenkins). As I mentioned above, the 2012 end-date has been held in consciousness and Truth for thousands of years and I recommend that you hold it in the same way, while also exploring the radical and controversial new system proposed by Carl Calleman.
The Mayans were obsessed with time and lived in a Universe of Holy Time. Their calculations of time were based on a "divine year" of 360 days, not the 365.25-day cycle of the Gregorian calendar. (The Egyptians and other spiritually advanced ancient cultures also used the 360-day calendar to tune into Sacred Time.)
Calleman says that the Mayan Calendar is a chronology of the emergence of Divine Light within the entire galaxy, which - of course - includes humanity. He says that the Mayan Calendar describes a process of creation from a time when no solar systems or even galaxies existed. This is Holy Time, not mechanical time or even astronomical/astrological time (which we track from our perspective here on earth). Calleman says that the Mayan Calendar applies to the evolution of all life in this galaxy, not just to the evolution of life on earth.
There is a Stele (carved rock) in the Mayan city of Coba which contains a long list of dates. Understanding this Stele holds the key to the meaning of the Mayan Calendar. Calleman, a biologist by training, looked at the dates (the ones that were labeled by the Maya) and realized that they corresponded almost exactly with the known (i.e. modern scientific dating of the) evolution of the universe - dating back to the Big Bang 16.4 billion years ago.
BTW - Here's something mind-blowing: the stele includes even longer periods of time. It has dates that are not labeled which extend up to a million billion times of the known age of the universe! The Mayans truly were time-travelers.
But what caught Calleman's attention with the stele was the 'coincident' similarity between the labeled dates on the stele and the scientific dating of the various stages of evolution: Cellular, Mammalian, Familial, Tribal, Regional, National, Planetary, Galactic, Universal. Calleman calls these the 9 Underworlds. We are currently in the Galactic Underworld, which began on January 4, 1999 and lasts for 12.8 years. We are only one 'cycle' away from the final Underworld, the Universal which begins in March 2011 and lasts only 260 days.
Cellular - 16.4 billion Years Ago - Matter/Big Bang
Mammalian - 850 Million Years Ago - First Animals
Familial - 40 million Years Ago - First Primates
Tribal - 2 million Years Ago - First Humans
Regional - 100,000 BCE - Spoken Language
National - 3100 BCE - lasted 5125 Yrs - Written Language
Planetary - 1769 CE - lasted 256 Yrs - Industrialism
Galactic - Jan 4, 1999 - lasts 12.8 Yrs - Internet & Ethics
Universal - March 9, 2011 - lasts 260 days - Conscious Co-Creation
Ian Lungold writes, "This pattern does have an acceleration built into it. Each cycle of Creation contains the same amount of advancement and change but each cycle runs 20x faster." We are currently in the 8th period of Galactic Consciousness. The same amount of change that happened in 1.26 billion years of the Cellular cycle now occurs in 12.8 years in our current cycle which began in January 1999. The previous Planetary Consciousness period was 254 years long. A lot of us resonate with this concept of extraordinary time -acceleration and compression.
Here are two videos that demonstrate the acceleration of time in our world today:
From May 2007:
An update to that video, November 2008:
The Quickening
an emergency
It's important not to stay in a state of fear, but to see that the current prevailing disillusion is necessary, so that a new structure can come into being. - Eckhardt Tolle
The arrival at each new level of the Mayan Calendar is an 'emergency'. Each bump up is a radical change in our brains with the cumulative effect that basically we have no idea what's going on. - Barbara Hand Clow
There is a new frequency that is pulling us forward from the future. - Lloydine Arguilles
The Mayan Calendar is 'the Time of the invisible universe' not of anything physical - including the sun, the planets or even the stars (as tracked by astrology). Astronomical physical bodies explain cyclical repeating phenomenon, not continual ascending evolution. This Holy Time pulses from 'The One Reality' and, according to Calleman, we are scheduled to 'arrive' at full enlightened consciousness on October 28, 2011. This will be "a return to the Dreamtime" a perfect balance of polarities - within our brains, within our society, within the planet (the Global Brain) and in the galaxy itself. He writes, "only the divine reality is real, eternal; the material world is but an illusion."
The Mayan system of tracking time differs from the other systems in that it is not based on astronomical cycles in our local solar system, but on cosmic energies emanating from the Tree of Life." In other words the Mayan system of tracking time is sourced at a Galactic level - pulses of light issue from the Galactic Center which create evolution on earth (and all planets in this galaxy) and also create waves of time. These cycles are bigger, more universal than the astronomical cycles we astrologers follow based on the cyclical nature of our 'local neighborhood' - the solar system revolving around our star, the sun.
Note: For an explanation of the different types of calendars (and thus different streams of time) available to us, see my previous newsletter on the subject of Sacred Time: (scroll down to the bottom for the article)
Calleman created a 9-level pyramid model for the quickening cycles of time within the Mayan Calendar. Within each of the 9 levels - known as underworlds - a cycle of 7 DAYS and 6 NIGHTS occurs. 6 Days plus 7 nights = 13 heavens. Each Day or Night is "a consciousness package," an infusion of Light into humans which creates a steady progression to higher dimensions of consciousness. This in turn causes all humans to evolve into beings with multi-dimensional consciousness.
The 13 Heavens - step-by-step - lead to the emergence of a brain increasingly better equipped to receive information from the Cosmos. We see human creativity during the Days alternating with internal change and integration during the Nights. At the beginning of each DAY, beings with significantly more developed brains emerge, sometimes quite suddenly. One might say that each new Heaven is a new Thought from the Mind of God.
Mayan teacher Ian Lungold provided a 'by-line' or label to describe each of the Days and Nights of the Mayan Calendar. I find these labels to be quite accurate. For instance, for the 5th Night (Nov. 19, 2007 - Nov. 12, 2008) he used the by-line THE END OF MANUFACTURED LACK. It was during this time (on September 15, 2008) that the economy collapsed. We are still living in manufactured lack (due to the money-printing by the Fed, the corrupt banking system and our hysterical amounts of debt here in the U.S.). But the death-knell has been sounded.
For the 6th Day (Nov. 13, 2008 - Nov. 7, 2009), Mr. Lungold applied this label: CONSCIOUSNESS SURPASSES TECHNOLOGY. I believe that the explosion of social media during this time - especial FACEBOOK which encompasses enormous numbers of 'ordinary people' in a way that myspace or twitter and other social media outlets never have. It was during that time - in my life at least - that I seemed to suddenly be connecting with family, friends from all 'eras' of my life, and even highschool cohorts. We were connecting on the level of consciousness, giving a new meaning to how I related. It was surprisingly inclusive and loving. The technology was a useful tool, but what really happened was a closeness in mind and heart that was unprecedented in my life. Here is a video with some stats on how social media is changing our consciousness:
Ian Lungold says that as we progress up the pyramid "the deck is stacked" for more and more Light, more and more expanded brain capacity, and more and more higher consciousness. Creation is on our side and, as I quote Calleman below, the Beast of Materialism cannot prevail.
During all of the shifts and escalations of the pyramid, we have been waiting for the 7th Day (which begins this week on November 3, 2010) as this is the time that the full flower of consciousness is possible. The first buds, it is said, emerged during the 5th Day. So when we look back over the cycle we can see that what emerged during the 5th Day (November 24, 2006 - November 18, 2007) will be seen as the pivotal evolutionary developments from the perspective of the 7th Day. This is a good time to think back to the time period of November 24, 2006 to November 18, 2007 to see what emerged then and how it is now reaching fuller evolution.

On November 3, 2010 the 7th Day of the Mayan Calendar (according to Carl Calleman's system) begins. The 7th Day is the pinnacle of development for the Galactic Underworld, i.e. the form of consciousness that has been evolving since January 3, 1999. (Note: on March 9, 2011 we will start the final capstone on the pyramid, the culmination - known as the Universal Underworld -which lasts for only 260 days, ending on October 28, 2011. More about that in a future newsletter.)
And so, at this moment in time, all over the world people are planning gatherings to celebrate the beginning of the 7th Day of the Eighth wave (Galactic Underworld) on the days November 3-7. The background of these events will be the balancing and unification of East and West, Intuition and Rationality and maybe most importantly Feminine and Masculine. The Cosmos is inviting us all to align with this shift. (For more information on the global celebration of the beginning of the 7th Day, go to this FB page:
World dominance from the western hemisphere is coming to an end as a part of the evolutionary process ending now. Looking for abstract value (computer, digits, money on paper) will come to an end. A whole new context for the economy will emerge. The new world will not be driven by this kind of abstract value; it has to be based on the needs of the people.
The Eastern hemisphere of the planet (i.e. the right hemisphere of the Global Brain) is now being stimulated. As a result, the inspiration of the Galactic Underworld will LITERALLY come from the East (the Eastern hemisphere of the globe) - i.e. from India and China for example. And it will come from women. Many of our most profound teachings (and lessons) will come from these 'feminine/yin' sources between the years of 1999 to 2011 (and beyond).
So, as evolution accelerates, the feminine side of our brain is coming into balance with the masculine. During these years in general, and especially now during the 7th Day, it is a good idea to meditate on bringing the left and right hemispheres of your brain into balance. If you do nothing else on Wednesday November 3, this would be a great meditation to practice.
HERE'S THE THING, THOUGH: When you look around at the world, doesn't it seem like nothing could be farther from the truth concerning consciousness and integration? It's hard to picture such a shift taking place in our increasingly divided world and on such a short timetable.
The answer is: it is happening within our psyches. We can choose to resist or embrace the increasing influx of light. I have decided not to look outside of myself to see these shifts happening, but to look within myself to see if I am embracing the polarity balancing on all levels of my being. Is my brain adapting to the change? Is my heart? My emotions? My actions?
Rebecca Smither Orleane, PhD describes it beautifully: "We must pledge to look even more deeply at the emotions we feel and the choices we make. We must pledge to reject all thoughts that lead us to act out of fear and separation, the thoughts that judge others or ourselves to be less than we are as pieces of divinity moving towards unity together. We must pledge to examine the ways we manipulate others to get what we want and stop those patterns of behavior. We must pledge to be honest and true to our own hearts. Most of all, we must pledge to recognize the power of love and learn how to use it wisely. We must choose wisely through only our hearts."
The 7th Day
keep holy the sabbath
By the seventh day God had finished the work he had been doing; so on the seventh day he rested from all his work. - Genesis 2:2
WE EVOLVE TO CONSCIOUS CO-CREATION OF EXISTENCE AND EXPERIENCE is the label given to the 7th Day by Ian Lungold. What might this mean? I think a clue can be found by going back to the Biblical account of what happened on The 7th Day of Creation, as quoted directly above.
Here are other Biblical references to the 7th Day:
For in six days the LORD made the heavens and the earth, the sea, and all that is in them, but he rested on the seventh day.Therefore the LORD blessed the Sabbath day and made it holy. - Exodus 20:11
For six days, work is to be done, but the seventh day is a Sabbath of rest, holy to the LORD. Whoever does any work on the Sabbath day must be put to death. - Exodus 31:15
But the seventh day is a Sabbath to the LORD your God. On it you shall not do any work, neither you, nor your son or daughter, nor your manservant or maidservant, nor your ox, your donkey or any of your animals, nor the alien within your gates, so that your manservant and maidservant may rest, as you do. - Deuteronomy 5:14
For anyone who enters God's rest also rests from his own work, just as God did from his. - Hebrews 4:10
And God blessed the seventh day and made it holy, because on it he rested from all the work of creating that he had done. - Genesis 2:3
On the 7th Day we are to make holy the Sabbath. The definition of SABBATH is 'a special day of prayer or rest.'
The edict of keeping one day per week for holy activities is established in Commandment #3 of the 10 Commandments: 'Remember the Sabbath and keep it holy.' In Judaism the Sabbath is honored on Saturday; Christians honor it on Sunday - a reflection of the belief that the Resurrection of the Christ occurred on Sunday.
DEFINITION: Sabbatical or a sabbatical (from Latin sabbaticus, from Greek sabbatikos, from Hebrew shabbat, i.e., Sabbath, literally a "ceasing") is a rest from work, or a hiatus, often lasting from two months to a year. The concept of sabbatical has a source in shmita, described several places in the Bible (Leviticus 25, for example, where there is a commandment to desist from working the fields in the seventh year). In the strict sense, therefore, sabbatical lasts a year. The foundational Bible passage for sabbatical concepts is Genesis 2:2-3, in which God rested (literally, "ceased" from his labor) after creating the universe, and it is applied to people (Jew and Gentile, slave and free) and even to beasts of burden in one of the Ten Commandments (Exodus 20:8-11, reaffirmed in Deuteronomy 5:12-15).
Metaphysically the concept of ceasing or resting from work and commiting oneself to honoring a holy time represents a rest from material pursuits (materialism) simply for the sake of materialism, and coming to rest in the Sacred, the Holy. In what is Real. Prayer and meditation are the primary ways to do this, but the commandment here is to keep a longer segment of time, even a full year, devoted to this spiritual communion. We are being asked to enter holy time where instead of worshipping material pursuits only, we are in tune with the Real and the Holy, on Sacred Time - which is so much more than a calendar based on bank holidays. For one thing, this way of being cares about people as well as profits.
WE EVOLVE TO CONSCIOUS CO-CREATION OF EXISTENCE AND EXPERIENCE. Instead of labor disconnected from the spiritual, we co-create with God. This way of living applies to people of all races, socio-economic strata and even to animals. And, oddly enough, it is punishable by death if we do not remember what is holy! Our world will die. We will die. In so many ways and on so many levels.
In the masculine centuries, especially in the 14th-16th centuries, the word Sabbat was defined as 'a secret rendezvous of witches and sorcerers for worshiping the Devil, characterized by orgiastic rites, dances, feasting, etc. One of the problems being addressed now is changing this demonization of the feminine, of the earth, and the earth religions.
But before Sabbats were demonized they were simply eight annual earth-religion (agricultural) festivals - aka Cross-Quarter holidays. These festivals honor the midway point between the major seasons of Spring/Fall (the Equinoxes in March/Aries and September/Libra) and Winter/Summer (the Solstices in December/Capricorn and June/Cancer). They mark the point where the earth's energy begins to shift forward toward a new CARDINAL sign. Astrologically the Cross-Quarters are denoted by when the Sun reaches 15* of the zodiac sign between the seasons. The Sabbats reach to the CARDINAL energies, toward the great Galactic Cross of Awakening.
We have just emerged from a summer of being 'crucified' on the Great Cardinal Cross.
Honoring the Sabbath and the Sabbats brings us closer to the Divine Perfection of the Conscious Co-Creation of the Cardinal Cross - the Cross of the Initiate, one who is firmly on the path of holiness in its purest sense. Now we are disciples. Then we will be Initiates.
(To read more about the Cardinal Cross, see my previous newsletter:
I leave you with some quotes, worth repeating, concerning the 7th Day and Ceasing from the Wheel of Materialism:
An important thing to realize is that the Beast (of Materialism) cannot win. - Carl Calleman
We can expect a last violent assault by the forces seeking a return to the materialist values of the previous underworld (i.e. level of consciousness).
Only the divine reality is real, eternal; the material world is but an illusion.
The Divine Feminine in the Underworld
New Moon in Scorpio Nov 5-6
Women as half of all workers changes everything. - 'The Shriver Report: A Woman's Nation,' study by Maria Shriver and the Center for American Progress
The time is out joint / Oh cursed spite / That ever I was born / To set it right. - Hamlet
If you find yourself in hell, keep going. - Winston Churchill
The burden of setting time right (holy time vs. banking time) falls on the Divine Feminine as she re-emerges with a gentle fury in this time of great quickening. The masculine must support her and lay down his weapons once and for all.
And so, as the 7th Day dawns - that penultimate time of balancing of masculine and feminine - it just so happens that Venus, the planet representing the feminine is retrograde and 'in the underworld.' A different kind of underworld than the ones described above - this underworld means that Venus is so close to the sun as she travels backwards (apparent motion from earth) that we can't see her in the sky. This holds an energy of being 'off the world stage'.
As if talk of two different kinds of underworlds isn't enough, we also have the New Moon in Scorpio on November 5-6 (12:52am Eastern Nov 6; 9:52pm Pacific Nov 5). Scorpio being the astrological sign most associated with the underworld, that internal place where our shadow side lurks, repressed parts of ourselves we'd rather not look at but which contain treasures if we are brave enough to let all parts of us see the light.
Any New Moon holds no light. The New Moon is also known as the Dark Moon, a womb-like energy at the very very beginning of a new cycle. Venus is retrograde for 40 Days and 40 Nights - wandering in the desert.
In October, Venus disappeared as the evening star and began a deep hidden journey. She'll re-emerge as the morning star in the eastern, pre-dawn sky on November 5 - at the time of the New Moon. And so, at this New Moon in Scorpio, Venus is halfway through her Underworld journey in Scorpio. She will then turn direct on November 18 - just days before the Full Moon in Scorpio/Taurus.
The planet Venus is known as Earth's 'sister' planet in esoteric spiritual philosophy. It is said that she has reached 'Sacred Status' - a kind of ascension or enlightenment on the planetary level. (Esoterism contends, and I agree, that all planets and stellar bodies have consciousness). And so it is said that Venus is helping Earth on her own journey to the same level of ascension. Angels are Venusian substance making up the protective/helping energies that have been with us for millions of years.
The Great Feminine Angel leads us onward. And right now, she is leading us through the Underworld. Angels guiding us through our own inner hells, like Virgil pulling Dante forward by the light of a flickering candle. Evolution calls us forward.
And so we have all of this light from the 7th Day, combined with a hidden, secretive, even weakened Venus who is not concerned with world affairs so much as she is with the inner journey, combined with a dark moon in the 'dark' sign of Scorpio. So much light so much night. Masculine-Feminine, Light-Dark, East-West.
Like Ms. Feminine, we too need to 'off the world stage' - a kind of Sabbath or sabbatical from all things worldly. Time to go within, even if there are goblins in there that frighten us. Time to rest. Time outside of artificial time. Ceasing.
This week (on the days of October 31 - November 2) is a holiday known as All Saints Day in the Catholic Church, Hallow's Eve in secular terms and Dia de Los Muertes in Latin culture. It is, across many cultures, the time to remember the ancestors, those who have passed on, both recently and in the long-ago mists of time.
Our blood relatives reveal the arduous task of evolution to the current state of being human. We have left much of antiquated beliefs and primitive behaviors behind, and yet we still cling to many destructive patterns. Consult the Wise Elders who have led the way in the past toward progressive en-Light-enment for their descendants. Tap into the path they have hacked through the forest, and follow the streams they have found in the desert, leading to the fountain of greater love and compassion toward our fellow humans and the planet.
The astrological sign of Capricorn represents the elders, wise and other-wise. Pluto, the 'planet' of death and re-birth, now has 'both feet' firmly planted in Capricorn, and eldership will now be re-defined, re-structured. Corruption and lack of integrity will be uprooted and pruned and turned to light in the new forms of government, and in the realms of corporations and banking. We need integrity-based elders - wise people of all ages - to run our institutions (our work in the world) in a 'holy' way, or we will surely perish. ('be put to death')
2024 is the new 2012
and an eclipse on winter solstice
When the book of time turns to blank pages - and the prophets are blocked from viewing the future - It is not written that this will be the end of all things - but a new beginning - A phoenix from the ashes - an opportunity for the human race to write a new book - and fill it's pages with all the beauty of the cosmos. Once and for all - we can claim our rightful position - on the throne of creation - as exploratory citizens of the universe.
2012, I am so over it. Back in 1997 when I first heard about the Mayan Calendar and its end-date of 12-21-12, I was mesmerized and fixated on it. Until recently. I still feel it is important. I see it as a gateway (2011-2013), much the same as the Millenial gateway of 1999-2001. An event (like 9-11) could happen. Or it could not. Much will change. But you knew that already didn't you.
The one thing about 2012 is that the general population is aware of it - thanks and no thanks to Hollywood, for bringing it to mass-consciousness but (sigh) in a fear-mongering form. Nonetheless, the fact that mass-consciousness is aware of it shows a shift in and of itself. Who knew about it back in 1997 except er, um odd-folks like me, holed up in my room reading esoteric and metaphysical books;)
NOW how 'bout 2024? This is a significant year which has come across my radar more than 10 times just in the past few months - leading me to pay attention to it. In 2024 Pluto goes into AQUARIUS which is going to be so mind-blowing, there really are not words to describe it. First we must get through Pluto in Capricorn which is chewing up our economy and having it for breakfast, then we will be ready for the Ferocious Revolution of 2024 and following.
I have also been studying esoteric spiritual philosophy and am told that the next person to take *dictation* from Spirit in the avenue of Alice Bailey at the turn of the last century will emerge in 2025. Some kind of fire will alight on earth at that time.
Oh and don't forget our Winter Solstice this year will be amplified by a Full Moon Lunar Eclipse falling within 3 hours of the Solstice! The Solstices and Equinoxes - 2 of each happening every year - will be eternal touch-flames to the Cardinal Cross, for many many moons to come. This Winter Solstice, the first after the Cardinal Cross perfected in the summer, has a big ol' moon pointing to it. More to come on the eclipse as it approaches. For now, suffice it to say that I'm all excited about it! I love eclipses and I love Winter Solstice so this is like, er, Christmas for me (which of course comes a few days later;) ... well, you know what I mean:)
