Truth as experienced by evolutionary forerunners
The scriptures are a revelation, perceived from intuition, not intellectually arrived at, although intellect is satisfied with the proof. Bacteria has evolved to Einstein on this planet, future potential is unlimited as well. Current potential for a human is also exponential within a single lifetime. The brain has developed sufficiently, the alignment of thought patterns, desire vortex and rewiring work is required foe experiential bliss. Those who experience such revelations are termed as Prophets. Misunderstanding about religion is common and you can hear people say its better to be spiritual not religious. They lack concrete understanding. The actual basis of religion / rituals (not mandatory at all) was for the time and clime and based on actual experience of human who came to be known as Prophets.
There may be a lot of conflict outwardly among the followers of various streams of religions, the persons to whom the revelation happened (Krishna, St. Francis, St. John, Prophet Mohammad) get along quite well with each other.
To the untrained eye, why is there so much difference between religions? Truth must be same. As explained by numerous practitioners, I had written a short book on the topic, can be downloaded from here.
The soul in encased in three containers, causal, astral and physical. The anatomy of astral body is discussed threadbare in Upanishads of India. With seven spinal centers, one eye, and 72,000 nerves it is the basis of forms the physical body. Google for “kundalini”, 11.3 million results from google as of today. The double helix like strand formed by Moon / Sun (Cooling / Warming) astral nerves Ida / Pingala inside the astral spine meets at the point between eyebrows. They criss-cross at seven points in the astral spine. This is experienced by consciously withdrawing the life current from the physical body. At the point above forehead a thousand-rayed light like that of million trillion suns is experienced.
When Kundalini is activated and stabilized, bliss is experienced (some times even physically thousand billion times intense whole body orgasms are experienced). Example of a recent recorded experience, even in mild form.
The biological transformation cannot be haphazard (unlike that displayed in Hollywood movies X-Men / Mutants). It is quite a predicted trajectory, at least we know that for the next step, if not further steps.
Christ was crucified once but his teachings are crucified daily at the hands of theologians, translators and intellectual interpretations.
Going to church or temples does not provide an experience of God, it only promotes “Churchianity”, similarly temples are meeting places of pigeons and parrots.
The true meaning of the scripture is realised inside oneself, which is the actual battlefield of Mahabharata (topic for another discussion).
Scriptures have knot points not understood by the intellect nor even by devouring the libraries.
Even Mahabharata is not understood and mis-interpreted for the real spiritual meaning is something else altogether, which contains the Hindu revered Gita commentary, is the inner battle, nobody names their sons Duryodhana, Dushasana (Cruel warrior, Cruel ruler etc.) and nobody has exact 100 sons. India never had a system of polyandry but this book contains an example of a lady marrying five men. The analogy of lady is Kundalini power and it pierces the five centres until the cervical centre in the astral spine. Krishna and Arjuna are having a discourse in the battlefield, clearly no place for a lecture. So, the allegories appear true but have a different meaning for the spiritual aspirant.
Let us see what St John wrote by his personal intuition and experience. St. John did not read a library full of books in order to write the book on Revelation.
To know truth, you must experience it in your own consciousness. The Hindu Yogis and Swamis practicing Yoga or the science of oriental Christian metaphysics have given almost identical descriptions in Yoga books as of all that has been recorded by St. John from his inner experiences.
Lets refer to what St John says in revelation from his personal experience and effort.
Revelation 1:10 I was in the Spirit on the Lord’s day and heard behind me a great voice, as of a trumpet.
Revelation 1:11 Saying I am Alpha and Omega, the first and last, and, What thou seest, write in a book, and send it unto the seven churches…
Meaning: In Spirit is St. Johns consciousness, he was leaving the world of vibratory matter. Sound of Om, Amen, Amin. Cosmic Motor. He describes vividly his experience behind the ego (Ego is soul identified with physical dot point).
Revelation 1:12 And I turned to see the voice that spake with me. And being turned I saw seven golden candlesticks.
St. John said in the tenth verse that he was in the Spirit; hence, when he spoke of being turned, he did not refer to bodily motions. He fixed his attention upon, and became one with, the voice which spake or vibrated within him, and as he stayed in that vibratory sphere he perceived the seven golden astral doors of escape which lay within his physical body. The physical and astral bodies are the bodies of energy. How are they connected? The physical body is attached to the astral body by seven candlestick like vibratory seals. Energy flows into the spine through the physical body. Just as electricity flows into the bulb through a wire passage, so the Cosmic Force flows through the medulla into the spine and its seven centres; into the body and its five sense lamps. The astral body of the life force is knotted to the physical body by seven golden candlestick like burning seals.
What is the meaning of candlestic? Two terms have been used, stars as well as candlestics; the former are the lights and the latter, the receptacles. Angel means star, and church means receptacle.
The seven centres of light for the outgoing current are:
(1) Thousand petaled lotus star ( seat of the beautiful, condensed, lotus,like, thousand rayed life current performing the thousand and one functions in the body) : Bliss-ether in which God and the angels abide: main dynamo. Cosmic energy enters the body through the medulla but is stored in, and distributed by, the whole brain;
(2) Medullary centre (seat of the two rayed lotus star of life force (positive negative current) ]: Superether in which thoughts and the life force move;
(3) Cervical centre (seat of the sixteen rayed lotus star of life force) : Ether through which sounds and electrons travel;
(4) Dorsal centre (seat of the twelve-rayed lotus star of life force): Air (vitality);
(5) Lumbar centre (seat of the ten-rayed lotus star of life force): Fire (inner life energy);
(6) Sacral centre (seat of the six-rayed lotus star of life force): Water (circulation);
(7) Coccygeal centre (seat of the four-rayed lotus star of life force): Earth (the gross flesh).
The spinal cord may be likened to a wire. In it are located these seven centres of light which are the subcentres for the conduction and distribution of life current throughout the body. The body is nothing but a condensation of this spinal energy. Just as invisible hydrogen and oxygen atoms can be condensed into visible vapor, water, and ice, so light can be transformed into body which is nothing but frozen energy. You must lose all fear of sickness and accidents; as your body is nothing but energy, it cannot be harmed.
When you realize this, you will be free.
The seven centres are the churches or candlesticks, and the seven stars are their dynamic radiating currents. The Cosmic Energy enters through the medulla to be stored in the brain, whence it descends into the seven centres, feeding the seven elements of which the body is composed. When these seven lights are withdrawn front the body in death, the body disintegrates. In passing from the consciousness of the body to that of the Spirit, one experiences these seven dynamic doors of energy fixed in the astral cerebrospinal axis. The soul must leave the physical. astral, and spiritual bodies through the seven astral doors in order to reach. and merge into, the Spirit. After it lifts its consciousness from the physical body, it must unlock, and pass through. the seven astral doors in the spine.
Revelation 1: 13 And in the midst of the seven candlesticks one like unto the Son of man, clothed with a garment down to the foot and girt about the paps with a golden girdle.
St. John speaks of the form of the astral body as some thing similar to the Son of man. or the physical body which is born of man, or matter. He describes the astral body as boot around the seven candlesticks or seven centres of golden life force, describing it as a garment down to the foot (the entire astral nervous system woven with filaments of nerve currents like a garment). The golden girdle, about the paps, or the swelled astral radiation, is the golden halo which surrounds, girdles, or spreads out around, the entire astral body. By looking steadily with unblinking eyes at the entire outline of one’s body, one can see a vapor, like astral radiation-an astral aureole.
Revelation 1 :14 His head and his hairs were white like wool, as white as snow; and his eyes were as a flame of fire;
Revelation 1:15 And his feet like unto fine brass, as if they burned in a furnace; and his voice as the sound of many waters
The origin of all concentrated finer forces which govern the physical body is in the head; hence the fine, hair, like filaments of white, fleecy lights in the main cerebral centre are described as white, fibrous and fluffy, like wool. The cerebral light of thousand petals or thousand rays, as described in Hindu Yoga books, performing the thousand and one functions in the body, is pure and white as snow. White is the combination of all colors; and the cerebral astral mother cell, the feeder of the above mentioned seven life sub centres of different vibrations and colors, is described as white. The seven subcentres manifest different colors, according to their rates of vibratory manifestations. Different thoughts register different states and colors in the spiritual eye and life force.
The physical eyes proceed from one light centre, just as one switch lights the two headlights of an automobile. Thus the physical body has two eyes, but the astral body has only one eye, like a flame of fire. It is the one astral flame of fire which pours into the two eyes, giving them power and manifesting them as two. For this reason, when the two eye currents are concentrated and thrown back in the medulla by focusing the eyes on the point between the eyebrows, they are perceived as one single spiritual eye of light. ( . . . If therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light – Bible) When the two physical eyes manifest the single spiritual eye, then one can perceive, by continuous spiritual development, the physical body as filled with the super,lights of the supersensuous astral body. The astral head is pure white, the astral centres of lesser vibrations are golden, and the astral feet, with the lowest rate of vibration, glow yellow, like melted brass in a furnace.
Vibratory manifestations are accompanied by lights or sounds, whether we register them or not; or rather, vibrations express themselves in us through various lights or sounds. The astral body consists of different rates of vibration, manifesting themselves in different colors and voices, or sounds of many waters, or vibrating elements. Different sounds emanate from the seven elements of the astral med ullary super ether current, ether manifesting cervical current; air, or vitality, dorsal current; fire, lumbar current; water, sacral current, and the earth, coccygeal current. All these- superether in the medulla; ether in the cervical plexus; air current in the dorsal plexus; fire current in the lumbar plexus; water current in the sacral plexus, and earth current in the coccygeal plexus-are the different vibrating elements which constitute the human body, and they give forth different sounds. For this reason, this astral body of many lights and colors is spoken of as emanating from elements.
The soul is trapped inside three bodies – physical, astral/energy/light and ideational/causal, and it is unable to cast of its shackles and escape to Omnipresent Consciousness. The union of human consciousness with Cosmic Consciousness is impossible to reach through intellectual study, imagination, study of scriptures. Such union is possible through knowledge and personal experience of seven astral doors/locks/candlesticks. By withdrawing the life force from the physical body, the physical body become inert/inactive/suspended animation/ or dead as if the current has gone from the bulb, yet one is face to face with one’s astral body, still trapped in two containers but never more alive and clearly aware compared to physical waking state. The soul must learn to free itself from the bondage. No matter what outward religion one professes, one is confronted with the necessity to open the seven seals of energy to unite in Spirit and free oneself from the bodily bondage.
