What might the Trinitarian implications in the Law of One Material?
Below is a quick summary of Ra’s explanation of the Infinite Creator’s self-progression.
–> Infinity becomes Aware. With awareness, Infinity is called Intelligent Infinity. First Primal Distortion, Free Will, is begotten. –>
–> Intelligent Infinity focuses Itself into individuated portions of Intelligent Energy. Second Primal Distortion, Love, is begotten–>
–> The Action of Free Will (Intelligent Infinity) upon Love (Intelligent Energy) creates light. The Third Primal Distortion, Light, is begotten. Thus the Manyness of the One is displayed in Infinite varieties.
Infinity Becomes Aware:
Prior to awareness, Infinity does not perceive because there is nothing that allows for perception. When Infinity became aware It was still in a state of total potentiality. There was only undifferentiated Godhead in complete silence, darkness, the void. All activity or energy was only there in potential, as not yet manifested. Infinity becomes aware of Itself and can thus be seen as Intelligent Infinity.
Intelligent Infinity is the “Father.” First Distortion of the Law of One: Law of Free Will
Intelligent Infinity understood that It was totally Self-Sufficient and Autonomous and possessed such a thing as a Will. Intelligent Infinity was totally free to use that Will at Its pleasure, thus the first primal distortion of Infinity came to be: Free Will. Intelligent Infinity is all that there is.
13.7 ….The Creator is the focusing of infinity as an aware or conscious principle called by us as closely as we can create understanding/learning in your language, intelligent infinity.
Intelligent Energy is the “Son.” Second Distortion: Law of Love
In the enjoyment of Free Will, Intelligent Infinity focused Itself through a novel concept which was not-infinity, or as Ra puts it, “Finity,” so that Its potentiality could be expressed. This self-contraction resulted in Intelligent Energy. This is the stuff of action, kinetic energy, and the development of creation. Ra calls Intelligent Energy: “Love” and “the Logos”. To be a Logos is to be pure Love.
How I define Love is that it is the energetics behind unity wherein the gnosis of oneness is fully known and enjoyed. Later down the Divine Progression, Love is the energy that exhales from the mouth of God into creation, and Love is the energy that inhales, draws, all things back to Source.
Ra: I am Ra. This must be defined against the background of intelligent infinity or unity or the One Creator with the primal distortion of free will. The term Love then may be seen as the focus, the choice of attack, the type of energy of an extremely, shall we say, high order which causes intelligent energy to be formed from the potential of intelligent infinity in just such and such a way.
Ra explains that this focusing leads to individuated portions of Intelligent Infinity called Logoi (Logos, singular). Our Galactic Center is our local Logos and is indeed what Christians know as the “Son.” 1 John 4:8 states that, “God is love.” To my mind, this is John’s intuition of the Logos being Love, the Second Primal Distortion of the Law of One.
The Logos further differentiates Itself into sub-Logoi which are individual stars. Though they are not separated from the Logos, they are individuated and have their own sentience. They are co-creators using the Logo’s divine laws by providing nuances that suit the Will-Pleasure of the sub-Logos. Ra says that our Sun is a particular intense and strong sub-Logos. The heliosphere is the Sun’s body and this includes all of the native planets and beings within it. Our Sun is also the “Son” in the Trinitarian model as it is a particular expression of our Logos, which as we know, is Intelligent Energy.
In fact, sub-logoi (like stars), or sub-sub logoi (like humans) have an interesting dual-ontology. We are both the “Son” and the “Father.” We are “Sons” since we are begotten of higher configurations of the Love, i.e. we are begotten of the Sun which is begotten of the Galactic Sun, which was begotten of Intelligent Infinity. At the same time, we are also co-creators in our own right which would indicate that we are “Fathers,” to our own creations.
This above paragraph is interesting but not that important in the comparison of the metaphysics of the Law of One and Trinity. The important thing is to note that Intelligent Infinity, which is Infinite-cum-aware, is the “Father.” It then begets (a kind of focusing of self within the prism of Finity using free will) Intelligent Energy. This is the “Son” and becomes the next important fluid movement towards Divine Self Expression. Free Will flows into Love which then flows into Light. Light is the foundation of all creation. All things give glory to God just by being themselves since all things are God expressed within the illusion of finitude. God learns and experiences Godself through you and me.
Isn’t the “Son,” Jesus? No. The Logos isn’t synonymous with Jesus, the man. But It is the same as what Christians call “Christ.” Christ preceded the man named Jesus as John 1:1 indicates: “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God.” Jesus became the Christ through his lifetime here on earth which was a process of kenosis, or life-long self-emptying. His one desire was to do the will of God, and this single-heartedness, gained him initiation into Christhood; something that all humans can obtain when our will becomes the will of the “Father” in the most pure and undistorted sense. In my reflection, the Jesus Event, we will see how Jesus was the icon, the living symbol, the face of the Logos. Jesus was a way-revealer, a way shower, and a way-maker up and out of 3rd density which was a path that did not exist in the same way before Jesus. Jesus was chosen (anointed= Christ) by the Logos for this mission… and Jesus, the 4th density graduate Wanderer, accepted.
Intelligent Energy Is (Also) the Holy Spirit. The Third Distortion: Light
The Logos (Word), or the Son, creates divine laws that become the structuring of creation. The Logo’s own Spirit is what Christians call the Holy Spirit, and what others might refer to as the Christ Consciousness.
The Holy Spirit is Intelligent Energy that proceeds from the Son/Logos (and the Father, Intelligent Infinity) as the kinetic, creative force of Love. Western Christians, in their statement of belief on the Holy Spirit, cite: “And I believe in the Holy Spirit, the Lord and Giver of Life; who proceeds from the Father and the Son; who with the Father and the Son together is worshipped and glorified.”
But wait! I said that Intelligent Energy was the “Son,” and now I’m saying that it is the Holy Spirit, too? To clear up the confusion, we can say that Intelligent Energy has a potential side and kinetic side. The potential side of Intelligent Energy (aka Logos, Love, “Son”) is the particular focusing of the Father (Intelligent Infinity) into individuated portions of Itself. This potential side of Intelligent Energy is the “Son” in our Christian Trinitarian model. Ra even used a special term for this potential side of Intelligent Energy and called it “Infinite Energy.” Infinite Energy and Intelligent Energy are pretty much synonymous with the emphasis being on the potential rather than the kinetic aspect of Intelligent Energy.
13.7 Ra: Awareness led to the focus of infinity into infinite energy. You have called this by various vibrational sound complexes, the most common to your ears being “Logos” or “Love.”
The kinetic side of Intelligent Energy is the Holy Spirit which puts all of the potential Love into action and creativity. The Holy Spirit indwells within all created things as the very Spirit of the Logos. If you wish to see the Logos, look in the mirror. We are the Logos having a human experience, albeit at a sub-sub dropdown level. The Spirit that made you is the Holy Spirit, Intelligent Energy. The Spirit that indwells inside you is this same Spirit: Christ Consciousness, the Holy Spirit, Intelligent Energy.
Ra: I am Ra. This is an appropriate question.
The intelligent infinity discerned a concept. This concept was discerned due to freedom of will of awareness. This concept was finity. This was the first and primal paradox or distortion of the Law of One. Thus the one intelligent infinity invested itself in an exploration of many-ness. Due to the infinite possibilities of intelligent infinity there is no ending to many-ness. The exploration, thus, is free to continue infinitely in an eternal present.
Another Christian belief is that the Holy Spirit unites all things into a larger body while each part of this Body has its own free will and sentience. This is not a hive mind model but one where each holon of the whole is united together in and through love energy. Christians speak of an indwelling of the One Spirit in each part of the creation. In my opinion, they are intuiting something that is true and consistent with the Law of One. Ra states that in the 7th density, the creature begins the returning to the One Creator. The 8th density is the conclusion of the former octave and the beginning of the next octave of being. Ra says that at the 8th octave level, one enjoys the totality of omniscience of the Creator. Yet, they also claim that the universe is infinite with infinite octaves of divine evolution taking place in an eternal now. It would seem, then, that the divine mutual indwelling never ends; that there will always be a transcendent quality to the divine which is clad in mystery that pulls its many parts ever more towards Itself.
Our Sun, as a sub logos, is clearly at minimum an 8th density being. And It is also a “child,” or sub-logos, of the Galactic Sun. They are both one and two at the same time. And in order for there to be “a two” there must be “a three” since there has to be a relationship between them. That relationship is expressed as the mutual indwelling of their shared spirit, that medium of oneness, wherein the Solar Logos’ indwells in the Galactic Logos indwells in the Solar Logos. Sub-logois, such as ourselves, indwell in the Solar Logos’ and the Sun indwells in us.
I would then speculate with some confidence that the Galactic Logos and Its “Father” mutually indwell and that this pattern of begetting and indwelling goes on and on, forever. In other words, the Infinite Creator’s One and Manyness is expressed as an eternal mutual indwelling of the same Spirit of Love. It seems that One can know that It is God, enjoying the totality of omniscience and omnipotence inherent within, while simultaneously being included into an always larger transcendence that is always just out of reach, clouded in the mystery of an ever larger wholeness.
There is Biblical support for this in John’s beautiful words of Jesus’ expressing this mutual indwelling.
“Do you not believe that I am in the Father and the Father is in me? The words that I say to you I do not speak on my own authority, but the Father who dwells in me does his works. John 14:10.”
“Believe me that I am in the Father and the Father is in me, or else believe on account of the works themselves. John 14: 11”
“…You know him [Holy Spirit], for he dwells with you and will be in you. John 14:17.”
From my perspective, many religious traditions are trying to grasp at the concept of the Creator. Their concepts capture and highlight different stages of the development of the Divine Inner Life, and none of the conceptions are “wrong.” That God or the Creator is Oneness is correct. It could be argued that “in the beginning” God existed as a Unity (Intelligent Infinity) that was NOT YET a Trinity. But it is also correct that God developed into a Trinity-within-Unity. Later, realizing that “later” is a metaphor for in eternity there is no time, God developed to the point where this Triune Unity self-expressed within a new law called Light.
It’s not enough to say that the Material World is an Illusion.
Yes, it is true that material world is an illusion, the manifestation of dancing thoughts in the Mind of God, the Law of One Material states. And, it is also true that God’s own development, or Divine Progression, led to Self-Expression in the eternal play of light that became the manifested, visible and invisible “World.” In fact, the fullness of God’s own self-maturity is realized in manifestation, itself. The invitation for us is to look around and see the delight of God shimmering in God’s self-manifestation. Look at your hands and see God’s hands. The very eyes that you use are God’s eyes looking outwards and Godward. The objects that your God-eyes see is also God. All is God, for there is no one else here. Paul intimates at the same concept: “Here there is no Gentile or Jew, circumcised or uncircumcised, barbarian, Scythian, slave or free, but Christ is all, and is in all” Colossians 3:11). When this kind of awareness becomes a personal experience, then you are able to perceive the Eternal Now as both Total Emptiness (The Infinite Creator before self-awareness) and Total Fullness (The Infinite Creator after self-manifestation). Both exist simultaneously in the Eternal Now.
All of Creation is God revealing Godself to Godself. We are all members of this One Body. We are all Christ, the Son, the Logos, and we are all created by and indwelled by the Holy Spirit.
