When I was first introduced to the Law of One Material a couple of years ago, I was intrigued and inspired by the dialog between the channeling team and “the messenger” of the Law of One, Ra. However, I hit a hard wall of confusion at the seventeenth session when the discussion turned to Jesus of Nazareth. As a Christian, my personal relationship with Jesus had always been strong and at that particular time I had once again rekindled the flame and was falling in love with him even more. My understanding of Jesus comes from my faith tradition. He was the Christ, the Begotten Son of God, the Second Person of the Trinity who incarnated on Earth to reveal to humanity the Love of God. Jesus and the “Father” shared the same unique divine substance which was different than that of creation. My view, along with most Christians, was this: Jesus is God and thus we worship Him, give Him praise and thanksgiving, and endeavor to invite Him into our hearts.
And then I read this:
Ra: I am Ra. I have difficulty with this question as it is phrased. Can you discover another form for this query?
Ra: I am Ra. The one known to you as Jesus of Nazareth did not have a name. This entity was a member of fifth* density of the highest level of that sub-octave. This entity was desirous of entering this planetary sphere in order to share the love vibration in as pure a manner as possible. Thus, this entity received permission to perform this mission. This entity was then a Wanderer of no name, of Confederation origins, of fifth* density, representing the fifth-density* understanding of the vibration of understanding or love.
* This should be fourth. Ra corrects the error in the next answer.
What!!!???!! Ra is saying that they knew about Jesus in a much different way that the orthodox Christian position. From Ra’s perspective, Jesus was NOT the Unique Incarnation of God but rather a member of what is known as the Confederation of Planets in the Service of the Infinite Creator. And not only did Jesus belong to the Confederation but he was a junior member who had just “graduated” from the density of Love (4th) into the density of Light (5th). An even further cause of confusion and angst was that I had come to see myself to be a Wanderer, or “starseed,” whose home density is the sixth; higher than that of Jesus.
For sake of clarity, let’s let Ra quickly define “Wanderer:”
Ra: I am Ra. Imagine, if you will, the sands of your shores. As countless as the grains of sand are the sources of intelligent infinity. When a social memory complex has achieved its complete understanding of its desire, it may conclude that its desire is service to others with the distortion towards reaching their hand, figuratively, to any entities who call for aid. These entities whom you may call the Brothers and Sisters of Sorrow move towards this calling of sorrow. These entities are from all reaches of the infinite creation and are bound together by the desire to serve in this distortion.
Ra: I am Ra. Few there are of fourth density. The largest number of Wanderers, as you call them, are of the sixth density. The desire to serve must be distorted towards a great deal of purity of mind and what you may call foolhardiness or bravery, depending upon your distortion complex judgment. The challenge/danger of the Wanderer is that it will forget its mission, become karmically involved, and thus be swept into the maelstrom from which it had incarnated to aid the destruction.
For a link to the article that was foundational for me regarding Wanderers, click here. In the early 80’s when this channeling took place, Ra mentioned that there were approximately sixty-five million Wanderers incarnated on Earth. Nowadays there may be will over a hundred million, mostly from the sixth density, but increasingly from the fourth who come here to participate and witness the planetary shift into the density of love. More on this later.
Few Wanderers ever awaken to their true nature because of the veil of forgetfulness in the third density (approx. 10% are quite certain that they are from elsewhere). The most common characteristic is a feeling of alienation and somehow knowing that they are different but they can’t quite place their finger on why. They also usually have a strong impulse to want to serve others or know that they have a mission in life. While this description is quite ambiguous, a more distinctive trait among Wanderers is that usually from a young age they look at the sky with a strange knowing that “up there” is home and not Earth. It’s not just a longing for “heaven up there” but a strong unconscious nostalgia for their home that they know is literally out of this world. For those interested or curious in learning more about the topic of Wanderers, click here. Most Wanderers do not “pierce the veil” and often live out their lives in quiet service. And that is just fine.
However, getting back to Jesus, Ra said that Jesus was a Wanderer who remembered more than most at an early age (italics mine):
Ra: I am Ra. This entity learned the ability by a natural kind of remembering at a very young age. Unfortunately, this entity first discovered his ability to penetrate intelligent infinity by becoming the distortion you call “angry” at a playmate. This entity was touched by the entity known as Jesus to you and was fatally wounded.
Thus the one known as Jesus became aware that there dwelt in him a terrible potential. This entity determined to discover how to use this energy for the good, not for the negative. This entity was extremely positively polarized and remembered more than most Wanderers do.
I wrote my friend, A.C., who had introduced me to the Law of One Material, and who is also a Christian, about my deep confusion regarding Jesus. He wisely met me where I was at, and wrote back that I shouldn’t worry because, “Ra can’t see everything.” That simple statement helped me get past these troubling passages so that I went on to learn more about the Law of One Material, much to my benefit and enlightenment. An inner drive began to form inside me. How can I make sense of the Law of One Material in conjunction with my Christian faith? Is the Law of One Material wrong? Misleading at best and at worst, evil? New Age? Or is Christianity somehow not entirely clear, in need of nuances to bring it to the next stage of cosmic understanding? Ahh… the dilemma.
Instead of assuming a black and white, either/or stance that one had to be right and the other wrong, I tried to hold both sources together in tension. I realized that I was free to not know. What I found that over the months and years, that tension would slowly dissolve, bit by bit, as pieces fell together into place. A story was emerging inside me that allowed for a putting together both sources in a way that made sense to me.
Even now, as I write this, I admit that the pieces don’t fit together perfectly. But my own spiritual growth of moving from the Illuminative state to the Unitive state gives me the utter confidence to realize that it doesn’t matter. I am experiencing in my own way a kind of oneness with God that is more than enough to provide me with a solid ontological foundation. In short, I know who I am in the Infinite Creator. And once you get the “Who” right, the “how” or “what” of metaphysics becomes a matter of discovery and discernment.
With this backstory, I now proceed into new territory. Why is it new? Well, quite frankly, people who identify themselves as Christian most likely would not be open to the metaphysics that the Law of One Material reveals. They would see it as esoteric and New Agey and thus, quite dangerous. On the other side, people who read the Law of One Material, as far as I can tell in my own research, are usually quite suspect of not only the Christian faith but of all religions in general. They throw the whole baby out with the bathwater. It seems one facet of my vocation in this incarnation is to attempt in my own way to synthesize these two sources to some degree. This is at least true on a personal level. Whether my own synthesizing attempts are helpful to others, is not up to me (although I’d be pleased!!).
I have a hunch based on esoteric developments not discussed in this essay that in the not too distant future, Christians will be highly challenged by certain disclosures that will cut to the core of their reality bubbles. I hope to at least paint a large enough picture that will assist disillusioned Christians find that not only many of their faith’s intuitions are absolutely correct but can hold even more cosmic truths.
Who is God the “Father” in this Picture?
The following few paragraphs is a review of the first two essays in the trilogy: Trinitarian Implications in the Law of One Material, and Who was Christ? Infinity became aware and formed a di-polar specialization with Intelligent Infinity on one side and Intelligent Energy on the other. Together, this di-polar dynamic made up the Mind of God. With awareness came another realization, Infinity was completely self-sufficient and therefore possessed total free-will. Through awareness and the first divine law, free will, God then brainstormed a concept called “Finity.” In those two essays above, I conflated the word “Finity” for “Christ” following the Christian tradition of understanding Christ was the first idea in the mind of God.
The Mind of God not only conceived of Christ, as an Idea, but due to the first divine law, endowed this concept with free will. Now begotten, the novel idea then gazed back upon the “Father” and realized that it was one with the “Father.” In a moment of ecstatic union, “Father” and “Son” freely choose to embrace with total self-abandonment. The embrace itself resulted in the second divine law, Love. We now have a dance of three, a fullness of unity that has morphed into a trinity. The “Father” begot the “Son”. The Holy Spirit proceeded from the “Father” and the “Son” through the act of recognizing and then choosing union. Ra’s second divine law, Love, is what Christians call, the Holy Spirit.
The 1) Mind of God, 2) It’s first Idea, Christ, and 3) their mutual Love, the Holy Spirit, form what Christians call the Immanent Trinity or Godhead. Now we have a template for all of reality that will be re-created in an infinite variety of forms or holons. This triune nature will be stamped within each holon of creation, no matter how infinitesimally small or how galactically large.
When the Immanent Trinity was ready, God began to manifest Godself in a unique manner. This is the image (icon) of God in God’s creation. Christ, the original Idea from the Mind of God, burst forth from the womb of God as the first streamings of manifested reality, Light. Light, then became the third divine law. We could say that manifestation is actually God’s Love configured as light. In other words, what you see with your eyes and touch with your hands is God’s Love configured in a seemingly frozen-like, dense state of light. And the code word for this manifested form is the “Cosmic Christ.” But here is a very important point and actually THE central idea behind the concept of Christ: Infinity could now explore Itself through various levels or states of perceived limitedness and separation. In short, the Many-ness of God (the created universe) is made up of Holy Individuated Forms, sometimes called Holy Monads. There is no difference in the substance between one Holy Monad and another or between themselves and the Infinite Creator, yet later as Finity/Christ explores Its own Beingness, differences in levels of consciousness of oneness arise. As we will see, some monads share God’s omniscience and other monads have chosen to submerge themselves in the worlds of separation to experience the novelty of finity come to its logical conclusion.
At first these Holy Monads all shared with the Infinite Creator total awareness of unity just as Christ within the Godhead realized It’s inherent union with the Father after being begotten. This first generation of the Many-ness of God were, as I mentioned, individuated portions of God, and thusly endowed with the same triune nature that contained their 1) own Mind, 2) their own concept of Finity/Christ, and 3) their own experience of the unifying Love between them. Collectively AND separately they knew themselves to be members of the original Christ and likewise met the gaze of the Father as the original Christ did.
Is there a difference between God and Holy Monads? No, not really. To recap, Holy Monads are individual expressions of God who explore and self-express using the first three divine laws, or divine tools. The tools are there in place, and the Holy Monads are free to eternally create and experiment using them. Nothing separates the Holy Monads from each other and from the “Father.”
Yet, because of the amazing, novel concept of Finity/Christ, a natural holoarchy begins to develop. Holy Monads through their own use of the Christ Principle can create sub-monads who then create sub-sub monads in “descending holons” which are all contained within the original Holy Monad that begat it all…. which is Itself also contained within the original Holograph, the Godhead. In other words, God the “Father” is totally aware of the creations that each Holy Monad beget because they make up the Father’s meta-Cosmic Body. Put succinctly, God’s right hand knows what God’s left hand is doing, as it were.
Once a Holy Monad desires to manifest, it mirrors the process of the Godhead, the Immanent Trinity. Through it’s own concept of Finity/Christ, a new Logos, or Word, is begotten. One example of this extremely high level of begotteness is what Ra refers to as the Galactic Logos. It’s own body grows into billions of stars and planets. Each star within this Galactic Body, including our own Sun, is called a sub-Logos. Humans are actually sub-sub Logoi and make up the Body of the Sun. Our Sun is a sub-Logoic Being who is in total union with the Galactic Logos, who in turn is totally one with the Infinite Creator. In actuality, the Sun could be understood as an individuated expression of the Galactic Logos. As such, It possesses It’s own free will to co-create using the particular pattern in the Mind of the Galactic Logos.
Briefly stated, the Galactic Logos comes up with a creative combination of how to use the divine tools: free will, love, and light. Then it makes this combo into a template. Next, the Galactic Logos creates a holon or sub-monad of Itself and endows it with free will. With free will and the Galactic Template “in hand,” the Sol begins to create Its own Body: the solar system and everything in it. Everything in our solar system is the Sun’s Logoic Body. Likewise, every star system in our galaxy makes up the Galactic Logoic Body. Then, all Galaxies comprise the Universal Logoic Body. All Universes combined are the Multiverse’s Body, and so on. The Infinite self-creates infinitely.
Interestingly, it appears that the different Galactic Logoi self-express the three divine laws differently. Ra states:
Ra: I am Ra. There are entities of Ra which have served as far Wanderers to those of another Logos. The experience has been one which staggers the intellectual and intuitive capacities, for each Logos sets up an experiment enough at variance from all others that the subtleties of the archetypical mind of another Logos are most murky to the resonating mind, body, and spirit complexes of this Logos.
Concluding Remarks About the Cosmic Christ’s Progression
As the reader can see, the many-ness of God, otherwise known as the Cosmic Christ, offers an infinite amount of varied expressions that not only combine in creative ways the three divine laws (free will, love, and light) but also opportunities to experience Itself through varying degrees of perceived union with the Godhead.
Who is the “Father”? I think the “Father” is the felt-experience of the presence of the Infinite Creator that is beyond you and me and yet includes you and me. Is the “Father” our Sun? our Galactic Logos? the greater Infinite Creator? The answer is perhaps, “Yes!” to all of the above. For the Sun is an expression of the Galactic Logos, which is an expression of the Infinite Creator. All exist as one in the many-ness of God. In fact, we are the “Father” under the perception of finite form. We know on some level that separation is an illusion and so our hearts are restless as they urge us to become aware of our Infinite nature in God. The “Father” is the Infinite nature calling us upward and outward and forward as our consciousness of union grows into the plenitude of awareness… and then individual limited consciousness falls away and omniscient awareness remains. At that point, the “Son” has returned home to the “Father” and the celebration of love that occurs begets yet new life and new creations.
You see, all of this creating and self-exploring is the fruit of Love. It is the mutual Love begotten from the uniting of the eternal “Father” and the eternal “Son” that provides the kinetic action which bursts forth the womb of Immanent Trinity as Light. It is Love that makes the stars burn brightly. It is Love that thrusts things out and Love that draws them in. It is Love that individuates and Love that coalesces. It is Love that disguises Itself as you and me and Love that makes us one. Finally, It is Love that allows creation to gaze back at the Creator and with one voice, speak back the same Word that begot everything from the beginning. The whole process of becoming is Love! It is important to get some idea of the progression of the Cosmic Christ because I’m setting up a narrative for the big event that took place on Earth: The Jesus Event.
The Jesus Event
A Heretical Position
I admit right off the bat and without hesitation that the view of Jesus I offer here is heretical to orthodox Christianity. It falls somewhere near Arianism but doesn’t quite fit within that heresy either, as we will see. My friend A.C.’s words, “Ra can’t see everything,” still has meaning for me but I have placed their “not seeing” at a different location than before. In the following quote from 1 Peter, we see that there is a Biblical reference for high spiritual beings like Ra not being able to grasp the full picture.
1 The prophets who prophesied of the grace that was to be yours searched and inquired about this salvation;
11 they inquired what person or time was indicated by the Spirit of Christ within them when predicting the sufferings of Christ and the subsequent glory.
12 It was revealed to them that they were serving not themselves but you, in the things which have now been announced to you by those who preached the good news to you through the Holy Spirit sent from heaven, things into which angels long to look.
I have come to believe that Ra did state the truth that Jesus was a “creature” and not the unique incarnation of God, as the central tradition of Christianity claims. Yet, Ra wasn’t able to see what Christ was up to through the incarnation of the entity that later became known as Jesus. A much grander revelation was afoot that even an angelic presence like Ra couldn’t understand or grasp. From this standpoint, I affirm that Jesus was a special, unique incarnation of God! What I’m just saying is that he was not THE special, unique incarnation of God. For as we will see below, all of creation, including all of the visible and invisible worlds, is God Incarnate. Jesus, you, and I all make up the “Many-ness” of the Infinite Creator; and the real difference between the Creator and the creature lies between the level of conscious awareness of this inherent union.
In what may be referred to as the “Jesus Event,” the Infinite Creator broke into third density Earth to offer humanity what I see as six interrelated revelations: 1) God is merciful and loving, not wrathful and petty; 2) any difference between God and creation is an illusion; 3) the Incarnation reveals that all of creation is the Body of God and therefore materiality is the fullness of divine expression, not the “left-overs” of some divine “trickle-down” condensation; 4) Love as the primary expression of God flows as a certain dynamic in what Christian’s call the Pascal Mystery; 5) Relationality as an approach to God is a key to opening the heart chakra; which is important because; 6) a planetary shift into the fourth density was around the corner and the God revealed in the person of Jesus an en vivo, live-action view of what this new density would be like.
Jesus as the Face of Christ
That’s quite a job that the Infinite Creator undertook and God needed an “icon,” a real person to be the face of God’s version of Christ’s to break into our reality, the third density. The Galactic Logos knew that humans would not fall in love with an idea or doctrine or some heady esoteric truth. That may work for a few people but the vast majority of us fall in love with a person. The Infinite Creator as expressed by the Galactic Logos understood that the harvest to the next density requires a 51% activation of the heart chakra in each person. The heart chakra is the fourth energetic center in the human body and as such it is a holon of the God’s own chakras. The heart chakra of the person needs to resonate at a certain threshold level in order to be appropriate for transitioning into the higher resonance of the fourth density. So what did the Galactic Logos do to get people’s hearts open so that the harvest could be as large as possible? God sent to them an archetype of Love, Jesus of Nazareth. Ra clarifies this a bit [italics mine]: “17.22 Ra: … This entity became aware that it was not an entity of itself but operated as a messenger of the One Creator whom this entity saw as love.”
In other words, Jesus, as an extremely positive senior fourth density Wanderer (density of Love and Understanding) realized in some way during the pre-ministry part of his life that his vocation was to be a living archetype of his home density’s energetics. He was harvestable to the fifth density which meant that he had mastered the lessons of the fourth. Who better to come into the third density world than a being who embodied perfectly the energetic frequency of love? Who better to enliven the energetic-of-love chakra of third density beings than a perfect embodiment of that self-same love-energy?
Here, too, I will get into trouble with most Christians. I do not believe that Jesus ever understood himself as God, in the way that most Christians assume. He never asked us to worship him, only follow him. Jesus’ miracles seemed godlike at the time (and would today, too) but he used principles of Intelligence, Free Will, and Love that are available to all humans. He remembered early in his life how to penetrate the veil and he had aligned his will with the Will of the Infinite Creator. Jesus’ ability to heal others was not a unique gift that only he could ever possess [ie because he was God], but rather an ability that all share if we are willing and able to fully enter the Kingdom of God Within. Ra outlines a three-step, albeit difficult, process in how a person could become a healer:
4.17 …Firstly, the mind must be known to itself. This is perhaps the most demanding part of healing work. If the mind knows itself then the most important aspect of healing has occurred, for consciousness is the microcosm of the Law of One.
The second part has to do with the disciplines of the body complexes. In the streamings reaching your planet at this time, these understandings and disciplines have to do with the balance between love and wisdom in the use of the body in its natural functions.
The third area is the spiritual, and in this area the first two disciplines are connected through the attainment of contact with intelligent infinity
Ra states in session 17.20 that before Jesus began his ministry, he…
…studied first day and night in its own religious constructs which you call Judaism and was learned enough to be a rabbi, as you call the teach/learners of this particular rhythm or distortion of understanding, at a very young age.
At the age of approximately thirteen and one-half of your years, this entity left the dwelling place of its earthly family, as you would call it, and walked into many other places seeking further information. This went on sporadically until the entity was approximately twenty-five, at which time it returned to its family dwelling, and learned and practiced the art of its earthly father.
When the entity had become able to integrate or synthesize all experiences, the entity began to speak to other-selves and teach/learn what it had felt during the preceding years to be of an worthwhile nature.
When Jesus started his three years of public ministry, he was actualized as crystallized healer. As Ra states, “A crystallized healer has no will. [He or She] offers an opportunity without attachment to the outcome, for [he or she] is aware that all is one and that the Creator is knowing Itself” 66.15. This is why Jesus repeated to those who he healed that it was their faith that saved them. Ra clarifies this in session 73.13:
When [Jesus] was asked to heal, it oft times did so, always ending the working with two admonitions: firstly, that the entity healed had been healed by its faith, that is, its ability to allow and accept changes through the violet ray into the gateway of intelligent energy; secondly, saying always, “Tell no one.” These are the workings which attempt a maximal quality of free will while maintaining fidelity to the positive purity of the working.
The point here is that Jesus didn’t do the healing but rather acted as a crystallized conduit (of diamond-like purity) of the Holy Spirit which did the healing to the degree that the recipient wanted it. Daskalos, the Christian mystic and healer extraordinaire said the same thing about his own ability to bring healing to others. He saw himself as a channel for God’s divine healing energies and never took credit himself as being the healer. For me, the miracle of Jesus’ healing lay, in part, in his own inner work which would have to have been extremely well honed. He must have possessed little or no blockage in his own energetic centers (chakras) in order to become a crystallized healer. His will and the Will of the Father were one as he himself was One with Father (John 10:30).
Revelation 1: God is Merciful and Loving not Petty and Wrathful
Richard Rohr convincingly shows that Jesus employed a unique hermeneutic when he interpreted the Hebrew Scriptures. Jesus saw God as loving and merciful and intimate. Rohr writes [italics his]:
My methodology [for interpreting Scripture] is very simple; I will try to interpret Scripture the way that Jesus did.
Even more than telling us exactly what to see in the Scriptures, Jesus taught us how to see, what to emphasize, and also what could be de-emphasized, or even ignored. Jesus is himself our hermeneutic, and he was in no way a fundamentalist or literalist. He was a man of the Spirit. Just watch him and watch how he does it (which means you must have some knowledge of his Scriptures!).
Jesus consistently ignored or even denied exclusionary, punitive, and triumphalistic texts in his own Jewish Bible in favor of texts that emphasized inclusion, mercy, and justice for the oppressed. He had a deeper and wider eye that knew what passages were creating a highway for God and which passages were merely cultural, self-serving, and legalistic additions. When Christians state that every line in the Bible is of equal importance and inspiration, they are being very unlike Jesus . . . .
Jesus read the inspired text in an inspired way, which is precisely why he was accused of “teaching with authority and not like our scribes” (Matthew 7:29).
What about the problematic images of God presented in areas of both the Hebrew Scriptures and Christian Scriptures? Ok.. so we are moving into another controversial area but if you stay with me, a satisfying resolution results.
Two Paths to the Creator
The Law of One Material articulates two paths to the Creator: the positive path and the negative path. I will discuss more fully the two paths to the Creator in a later essay, but for now, I’ll sum up the dual-path of soul evolution in this way. The main “job” for souls in our density, the third density, is in the choosing of a polarity that will become the thrust towards greater and greater consciousness. What allows for polarity in our density is what Ra calls, “catalyst.” A catalyst can be roughly understood as anything that brings us to our knees, whether in great suffering or in great love. For the positive path (positive polarity), aka right-hand path, a being learns to love and accept the catalyst and thus experiences a “death” and “resurrection.” For the negative path (negative polarity) aka left-hand path, a being seeks to control and manipulate the catalyst. Both paths are legitimate ways for soul evolution. Did Jesus every mention anything about these two paths? I think so.
In Revelations 3:15-15, Jesus words read, “I know your deeds, that you are neither cold nor hot; I wish that you were cold or hot. So because you are lukewarm, and neither hot nor cold, I will spit you out of My mouth.” One possible interpretation, albeit poor exegesis, might be that “hot” and “cold” represent the two paths towards the Infinite Creator. Those who don’t achieve the prerequisite polarity (51% for positive harvest and 95% for negative harvest) are “spit out of God’s mouth” or recycled into another third density experience so that the soul has further opportunity to learn the lessons of choosing a polarity.
Ultimately, all beings no matter which polarity they choose in third density will choose the positive path, or path of unity, in early sixth density. Put in another way, parts of the Finity of God (Many-ness of God) fall in love with the idea of separation and limitedness. As these parts make the choice to follow the negative path, they must, with all of their might and will, block all urges to see another being as it’s self. With great perseverance, a negative polarity being seeks greater control and domination of other selves in order to ride the idea of separation to its furthest destination: the beginning of the density of unity. Why is early sixth density the end of the road for the negative path? Ra answers:
65.15 The sixth-density negative entity is extremely wise. It observes the spiritual entropy occurring due to the lack of ability to express the unity of sixth density. Thus, loving the Creator and realizing at some point that the Creator is not only self but other-self as self, this entity consciously chooses an instantaneous energy reorientation so that it may continue its evolution.
Ra shares that the Orion Confederation, a negative-path Confederation, bent upon enslaving others has played significant roles throughout the history of humanity, especially in recent times. The Orion Confederation is a group that resonates with negative polarity made up of beings from the third, fourth, fifth densities, and their few overlords in sixth density. Their great ability (and from a unitive perspective, dare we say role? For a very telling piece on this by Dr. Michael Salla, click here.) is coopting positive movements almost right from the start and use them for the purposes of enslavement and manipulation. As a whole they are not as creative or far seeing as the positives in higher densities. They often corrupt the good by parroting them at first and then pulling their followers ever so subtly towards their vision.
While they may not be so creative, they are extremely clever. One example of this is the corruption of the message of a sixth density group named by humanity as Yahweh. Ra reveals that there were two “Yahwehs” that appeared to Moses. The first Yahweh was like Ra, a senior member of the Confederation of Planets in the Service of the Infinite Creator. Their great desire was to help third density humanity awaken to the Law of One; which of course is the reality that all is One and separation is an illusion. It is noted here that Yahweh, like Ra, is not a single entity but a unified group mind/spirit complex who hails from the sixth density, the density of union. When a sixth density individual speaks, they do so in total union with their entire society. The questioner asked Ra in session 17.13, “When I am communicating with you as Ra, are you at times [an] individualized entity or am I speaking to the entire complex?” Ra answered, “I am Ra. You speak with Ra. There is no separation. You would call it a social memory complex thus indicating many-ness. To our understanding, you are speaking to an individualized portion of consciousness.”
All members of a sixth density society enjoy totally unity of community while retaining their the diverse expression of individuated beings. This is so because they are closer to the Omega point as they approach the gateway, the seventh density. Nevertheless, groups like Ra and Yahweh are not omniscient and have not achieved complete and perfect enlightenment; they are still on their journey. And they can’t see everything as Ra makes it very clear. Ra’s group and the Yahweh group made “naïve mistakes” that did not produce the fruits originally intended.
If interested, I invite the reader to explore on their own what the Law of One Material reveals about the original Yahweh’s services to humanity (click here). For our purposes in this essay, I offer that Moses had originally been in contact with the sixth density group, Yahweh. Through dialog, Moses began to teach the Law of One to his people through various means. This transmission of the pure teachings of the Law of One created a metaphysical bright light and acted as a beacon that drew worried negatives who would find enlightened third density souls to be quite threatening. They also desired to conquer and subjugate humanity as part of their imperial plan. Unrest in Moses’ followers stirred things up. Due to unrest within his followers and within his own psyche, he began to resonate at a lower vibrational frequency which allowed the Orion group to “get on the line,” as it were. Read what Ra states regarding Moses as the ground zero for an intensive battle with consequences reaching strongly into the present time.
Ra: The recipient was one of extreme positivity, thus accounting for some of the pseudo-positive characteristics of the information received. As with contacts which are not successful, this entity, vibratory complex, Moishe, did not remain a credible influence among those who had first heard the philosophy of One and this entity was removed from this third-density vibratory level in a lessened or saddened state, having lost what you may call the honor and faith with which he had begun the conceptualization of the Law of One and the freeing of those who were of his tribes, as they were called at that time/space.
Ra: I am Ra. This was an intensive, shall we say, battleground between positively oriented forces of Confederation origin and negatively oriented sources. The one called Moishe was open to impression and received the Law of One in its most simple form. However, the information became negatively oriented due to his people’s pressure to do specific physical things in the third-density planes. This left the entity open for the type of information and philosophy of a self-service nature.
In other places, Ra explained that the original Yahweh had genetically modified a group of humans in a certain way that gave them: 1) greater physical strength and stature, 2) greater mental capacity including having access to a bank of sound vibrations that were linked to creative forces within the cosmos. These sound vibrations became the Hebrew language and the power behind certain words or sounds within this language are certainly known by Kabbalists; and 3) a greater innate ability to understand the Law of One. Though their intentions were of service, the Yahweh group lacked the full wisdom to see that the root stock of human souls on Earth’s third density reality might create a social posture of elitism. The Orion Confederation capitalized on this tendency because this fits perfectly with the service-to-self path, the way of negative polarization. Thus, Orion made strong inroads into humanity at this time.
But the Love Always Wins!
From an exoteric (outer) perspective, no one outlines the Biblical journey better than Rohr [italics his].
I like to think of the Bible as what historian, social scientist, and literary critic Rene Girard rightly calls “a text in travail.” The text itself edges forward and then pulls its punch backward out of fear or small heartedness, just as humans do. In other words, the Bible doesn’t just give you the conclusions (which is what we want), but it does reveal some basic patterns of Divine Intrusion in to the world and thus creates a tangent for history. Our job is to connect the dots as they move history forward, and only then can we recognize when we are retreating from that trajectory. Such wisdom is surely a gift of the Spirit, and explains why the Bible has done so much harm in history when it was put in the hands of immature people, angry people, power-hungry people, fearful people, and people grasping for identity and superiority (which is all of us before conversion!).
Only inner spiritual experience of the meaning of a text can do the job–not just proof texts or memorized answers. Spiritually speaking, it does not help to give people quick and easy answers–which the ego always wants but will then misunderstand or misuse–unless they have also gone on an actual inner journey. The genius of the biblical revelation is that it doesn’t just give us conclusions. Instead, it does three things: 1) it tells us that the spiritual journey is real, and invites us into that journey; 2) it charts the process of going on that journey toward God, and there seem to be many patterns in the Bible itself; and 3) it thus offers us both the inner experience and some outer confirmation to trust that God is actually with us and will guide us. That is about all we need. The rest is all window dressing.
Life itself–and Scripture too–is invariably three steps forward and two steps backward. It gets the point and then loses it or doubts it. In that, the biblical text mirrors our own human consciousness and journey. Our job is to see where the “three steps forward” texts are heading (invariably toward mercy, forgiveness, inclusion, nonviolence, and trust), which then gives us the ability to recognize and guard against the “two steps backward” texts (which are usually about vengeance on enemies, supposed divine wrath, law over grace, forms over substance, and technique over relationship).

The exoteric presentation that Rohr outlines here is totally sufficient and one need not take a peak behind the veil and see the “inner workings of the clock,” so to speak. In fact, I would argue that the very fact we can even notice the three-steps forward, two-steps back pattern in life’s journey–and in the Biblical narrative–clearly shows the greater wisdom and vision of the Galactic Logos was at play all along! Put differently, the forces behind humanity’s evolving consciousness exist in the unseen realms, including what Cynthia Bourgeault and others call the “Imaginal Realm.” At this level, the duality of positive and negative polarity, war against each other as part of their progression.
The Imaginal Realm provides the template for what can be understood as the analog reality here in third density Earth. In other words, the Galactic Logo’s own chakras are working themselves out in the Logo’s own self-journey back to It’s own Omega point. Our reality of perceived limitedness and separation is the Galactic Logo’s own lower chakras moving through their own form of unblocking and clearing. We are holons of the Galactic Logoic Body and as such participate in the Logo’s own divine Becoming. Any warring factions on the third or fourth densities are in actuality groups of individuated sub-sub logoic beings, holons of the Galactic Holon, who play out in analog what is really happening in the unseen realms. We could even say that, rather than the good and bad being in combat with each other, they are offering each other the gifts of repeated catalysts for their respective group and individual souls’ evolution. God is in charge and the friction that polarity causes provides the thrust for our Logo’s living out It’s own life in the manifested world. All things are used for the good.
To conclude this segment, Ra states a nice example of this truth (Italics mine):
Ra: I am Ra. The Ark of the Covenant was that place wherein those things most holy, according to the understanding of the one called Moishe, [were] placed. The article placed therein has been called by your peoples two tablets called the Ten Commandments. There were not two tablets. There was one writing in scroll. This was placed along with the most carefully written accounts by various entities of their beliefs concerning the creation by the One Creator.
This Ark was designed to constitute the place wherefrom the priests, as you call those distorted towards the desire to serve their brothers, could draw their power and feel the presence of the One Creator. However, it is to be noted that this entire arrangement was designed, not by the one known to the Confederation as Yahweh, but rather was designed by negative entities preferring this method of creating an elite called the Sons of Levi.
Ra: I am Ra. This was charged by means of the materials with which it was built being given an electromagnetic field. It became an object of power in this way and, to those whose faith became that untarnished by unrighteousness or separation, this power designed for negativity became positive and is so, to those truly in harmony with the experience of service, to this day. Thus the negative forces were partially successful but the positively oriented Moishe, as this entity was called, gave to your planetary peoples the possibility of a path to the One Infinite Creator which is completely positive.
This is in common with each of your orthodox religious systems which have all become somewhat mixed in orientation, yet offer a pure path to the One Creator which is seen by the pure seeker.
Concluding Remarks on Revelation 1
Taken as a whole, the entire Bible reveals a pattern of God slowly revealing Godself to humanity. The Scriptures show that humanity’s own group spiritual evolution gradually opened up to higher levels of conscious awareness of the nature of God as love, mercy, forgiveness, and inclusion. The collective psyche of the Jewish religion needed to see itself as chosen, separated, and different. This gave them a strong identity. And if their chosenness and strong identity happened because of the influence of the Orion Confederation, these are accidentals. The negatives never see the big picture, so they can’t understand that they fulfill a very important role in the overall pattern. God uses the “devil” for God’s glory!
This three-step forwards, two-step back dance mirrors the individual person’s psychological development in that the main tasks of the first half of life include establishing an identity, a strong self-image, and a place to belong. The Galactic Logos, in the fullness of time, then chose to break into humanity’s third density reality using the person of Jesus to be the face of this new level of consciousness. The Cosmic Christ’s message, via Jesus, to Jesus’ own people and to the rest of humanity is that once an identity is established and one feels their chosenness, it is time to move into the next phase of the journey: to loosen the boundaries of identity and gaze into the eyes of others and see the same Self. You have to have a sense of self in order to let go of it. We have to let go of our attachment to identity and allow our reality bubbles to be pierced or at the very least, be semi-permeable, in order to better see how all is blessed, chosen, and indeed, One.
That we can understand this three-step forward, two-step backward pattern of the Big Picture, means that we are tracking with the Cosmic Plan of the Infinite Creator. All of the esoteric goings-on are secondary and actually make up the intricacies of the Plan. They are not necessary to know or even believe for us to get the message. It is one, coherent Universe because it is One Cosmic Body that Is-and-Becomes. Exactly how the Body “Becomes” is a matter of the Many-ness of the Infinite Creator interacting with each other at varying degrees of conscious awareness of union with the One. That the Many-ness includes positive and negative extra-terrestrials (humans from other planets) is an accidental matter that is less important to the Gestalt of the whole process.
Revelation 2: Separation from God is an Illusion
Interrelated to the first Revelation is that all separation and all limitedness is an illusion, and part of the divine matrix or veil that was placed in the third density by the Galactic Logos in order to make this density of choosing much more intense and efficient. Nothing polarizes better faith.
From my view, the Gospel stories point to several events that indicate Jesus’ presence ushered an intensification of the consciousness of love and understanding. This is so because the planetary shift into the fourth density, the density of love and understanding, was just on the horizon. Ra states that in fourth density, the veil is dropped, and the great work for humans at this level is to expand in the consciousness of love within oneself and between oneself and others. At some point in fourth density, the entirety of the society unites in a fusion of minds becoming what Ra calls the “social-memory complex”. No veil exists between self and other self within a society at this point. Jesus’ entry into the third density scene marked the beginning of the great push to gather as many people as possible together and activate their heart centers (chakras) in order to make the harvest into fourth density as large as it could be.
The Gospel stories about Jesus include narratives where the unitive light of Christ in Jesus was dispelling the stranglehold of perceived separation that characterizes the third density. Collectively, humanity was ready for a larger picture of reality and Jesus was the living archetype who started framing it. The following is not an exhaustive list but suffices for our purposes here, which is to show how Jesus’ presence brought the light of divine union into a world shrouded in the darkness that results from feeling separated and limited .
Jesus is confronted by Satan in the desert
(Matthew 4:1-11New International Version (NIV))
4 Then Jesus was led by the Spirit into the wilderness to be tempted[a] by the devil. 2 After fasting forty days and forty nights, he was hungry. 3 The tempter came to him and said, “If you are the Son of God, tell these stones to become bread.”
4 Jesus answered, “It is written: ‘Man shall not live on bread alone, but on every word that comes from the mouth of God.’[b]”
5 Then the devil took him to the holy city and had him stand on the highest point of the temple. 6 “If you are the Son of God,” he said, “throw yourself down. For it is written:
“‘He will command his angels concerning you,
and they will lift you up in their hands,
so that you will not strike your foot against a stone.’[c]”
7 Jesus answered him, “It is also written: ‘Do not put the Lord your God to the test.’[d]”
8 Again, the devil took him to a very high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their splendor. 9 “All this I will give you,” he said, “if you will bow down and worship me.”
10 Jesus said to him, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only.’[e]”
11 Then the devil left him, and angels came and attended him.
The devil is the archetype (and I would argue “living archetype”) of the world of separation, of the material. Material domination is offered Jesus if only he would worship that “spirit” of separation. When Jesus rejects the invitation to worship this spirit of separation, it disappears. He held on to his own integrity and self identity as being in union with the Infinite Creator.
Jesus also didn’t fight the devil, he didn’t give the temptation any energy, and he didn’t take any bait. The ethos of separation desires to pit a person against another within a world of scarcity. The result of this ethos produces a hierarchy of power where each successive rung on the ladder towards the top seeks to enslave and manipulate the lower. The top enjoys total power and control, but it also knows how fragile this position is. Since it’s all based on illusion, nothing is firm so there is a extremely intense urge to ever increase the strength of their grip. When Jesus said, “Away from me, Satan! For it is written: ‘Worship the Lord your God, and serve him only’,” he meant something like this: “The illusion of separation is transparent to me. I see you for what you are and I won’t allow you to control me through any temptation. Since you are not real, anything you offer me is also not real. Rather, I worship the mystery of unity of all things. I serve the Infinite Creator!”
Jesus sees Satan falling like lightening
A second area where Jesus takes on separation is right after 72 people come back from a mission trip. In Luke 10:17-18 “The seventy returned with joy, saying, ‘Lord, even the demons are subject to us in Your name.’ And He said to them, ‘I was watching Satan fall from heaven like lightning.'” This might be another way of saying that the illusion of separation (Satan) is falling and a new understanding of unity with God is revealed. That this statement came at the return of his disciples from doing good work puts a highlight on what Jesus’ mission was all about: revealing God as Love wherein no separation or division exists between the heart of God and the heart of the human.
It is important to note that nowhere did Jesus ever condemn the spirit of separation for existing. Why? Because it’s necessary in the self-becoming of the Galactic Logos. In It’s experience of Becoming, those portions of Itself (humanity as sub-sub logic beings belonging to the larger Galactic Body) also go through their mini inner-reconciliations. We could not become whole and “reconciled” within ourselves much less with the Galactic Logos if it were not for the perception of separation (veil). In other words, it is in the struggle with our inter- and intra- conflicts (catalysts) that brings us to greater wholeness and consciousness. Evil belongs. As I have mentioned, in Law of One terms, it serves as catalyst for further polarization should we, through our own free will, accept it and even love it and thereby transform it rather than transmit it.
Jesus heals, forgives, and transforms lives
Jesus’ ministry included healing people on all three triadic components of the soul: the Mind, the Body, and the Spirit. As an archetype of love and understanding (the energetics of the fourth density) he helped people reconcile with each other and with God. The Cosmic Christ, that manifestation of the Love between the “Father” and the “Son,” broke into third density humanity and enflamed the heart chakras of the people through the person of Jesus. Ra (17.22) stated that Jesus became aware that he “was not an entity of itself but operated as a messenger of the One Creator whom this entity saw as love…” To be a bit picky here, the Infinite Creator is not exactly Love, in se, for the nature of love is the recognition of an inherent union and then freely consummating that union. Love is both perceiving and acting on the reality of unity. So for love to even exist you have to first have at minimum a dyad. In the divine progression of the Godhead, the begetting of Love was a “a couple of steps out” from undifferentiated Infinity.
Nevertheless, Jesus’ own understanding of God-As-Love falls perfectly in line with his soul experience of having (just) completed the fourth density. His message that God-Is-Love is quite appropriate now in our times, to our third density reality. Love unites, reconciles through forgiveness and understanding, and the fruit of all of this acts as a transformer of energy. Lower, more chaotic energetic vibrations enter a transformer and are gathered, streamlined, and elevated to higher levels. Love does this and the Cosmic Christ used Jesus’ ministry to spark the fire.
Jesus Proclaims that he and Father are One
Jesus boldly announces to a tough audience, “I and the Father are one, ” John 10:30. Jesus had exquisite knowledge of his own soul. He had done extensive inner work and was by all accounts a wisdom teacher and adept of the highest order. He had achieved what later theologians would call “theosis” or “divinization” which is a heart-knowing and personal experience of being in union with God. The various statements made by Ra bear this out as Ra describes Jesus as being a crystalline healer whose will was totally aligned and one with the Will of the Infinite Creator.
Jesus was by no means the first person to achieve divinization. The Buddha and many of his followers as well as others from the Eastern part of the world shared in this same realization while embodied in the third density. Yet, the Cosmic Christ was using Jesus as a sort of “divine plow” that It pushed forward forging a straight pathway to heart activation and ultimately up and out of the octave. Jesus’ statement that he and God are one is not meant to be taken as an exclusive pronouncement only pertaining to him. We, too, are one with God because we are the Infinite Creator, albeit with “blinders on.” Courageously, with Jesus, we can stand firm in our own ontological integrity and face the ethos of separation, whether embodied by the “devil” or the “asleep” masses, and proclaim, “I and the Father are one, too!” We may even go further and invite our “enemy” to understand this same gospel truth.
The Veil in the Temple Tears
“And when Jesus had cried out again in a loud voice, he gave up his spirit. At that moment the curtain of the temple was torn in two from top to bottom. The earth shook, the rocks split…” (Mathew 27:50-51). This dramatic scene in Mathew’s Gospel account of the immediate aftermath of Jesus’ death reveals something very important. The Cosmic Christ was showing that the veil between the sacred and the profane is an illusion. Indeed, all is sacred space and there is no “holy of holies” in the Cosmic Body of the Galactic Logos. Temples served their purpose in the Age of Pisces. They created a gathering place that seemed separate from the rest of the world. Here, an individual or a group felt like they could have better access to the divine. Temples and sacred spaces work for the third density (and perhaps early fourth density) psyche. They created the container so that they roots can go deep. Religions do the same, when they are functioning at their best. Yet, the very notion of an ecclesia, or church, is moving into a more transcendent reality that acts as a fulfillment of the third density idea. I would argue that the creation of a social-memory-complex in the mid-fourth density is “church” come to its logical conclusion and manifestation.
Seen from this lens, Jesus’ prayer that “they will all be one, just as you and I are one–as you are in me, Father, and I am in you” (John 17:21), seems to be a foreshadowing of, and indeed an urgent longing for, the reality that comes to pass naturally in the course of the fourth density when the social-memory-complex forms. Just prior to this Incarnation, Jesus had enjoyed total union of mind and heart with other members of his society, wherever that was. This was a very fresh experience whose memory was vivid in the deep mind of his own soul. He knew what awaits these third density God-beings in the fourth density and longed for it to be a reality now!
The Cosmic Christ used Jesus to reveal that there was no separation between the material world and the divine. The tearing of the veil conveys this divine disclosure and connects it to the death of Jesus, the face of the Christ.
Revelation 3: The One Incarnation
Many New Age belief systems that I’ve encountered seem to have an underlying disregard for materiality. This disregard ranges from outright distain for the material world, including the body and sexuality, to expressing a very subtle frustration that we are here in this “valley of tears.” Perhaps this is the result of some vague yet persistent primordial knowing that this material world with its seeming limitedness and separation is, as Ra states, “dancing thoughts” in the Mind of God. There is an impulse to want to exit the veil and be done with separated life. I understand this impulse.
Yet, what the Incarnation reveals to us is that the Infinite Creator’s full self-expression through It’s original idea, Finity/Christ , is material world. Materiality is Light and Light, Ra says, is the fruit of the act of Free Will upon Love. Materiality is the Infinite Creator’s ultimate masterpiece!! It is Love expressed outwardly in eternal cycles of begottenness. All of materiality is alive and in its own way sentient. Its level of consciousness depends on whether it has evolved high enough to house a new soul, an individuated holon of God, in the late second density.
What gives us the wisdom and courage to say that materiality is not an impediment to God but rather the only avenue–the reality of the Incarnation? Here I move swiftly into the waters of speculation but I will just say it. I believe that it was no accident that for all of Christian history, humanity conflated Jesus with the one and only Christ. The orthodox story of Jesus as (the unique) Christ was also part of the Logoic plan because humanity needed to sit with the seeming paradox that the divine and material world could actually exist in union! Jesus became the Cosmic Christ’s icon of this mutual indwelling so that we could get the truth in one place, at one time, with one person. The idea was to see the truth in Jesus and then to see it in ourselves and all of creation.
The only difference I see between what I am saying about Jesus and what the orthodox position of Jesus with respect to the Incarnation is this: Jesus was a sub-sub logos like every other human, whether from this planet or another. He was a fourth density Wanderer harvestable to the fifth density and he freely chose to incarnate here to be a messenger of the Cosmic Christ to third density Earth, which I would argue was the plan of the Logos all along. He was not the unique Incarnation of God but rather a unique incarnation that was indeed special because he became the face of the transcendent Cosmic Christ in order to reveal the nature of God in unheard of ways. There has only ever been ONE Incarnation. That was the original bursting forth of Light from the Infinite Creator’s great and eternal act of love with Its one Idea, Christ. Put differently, when the Immanent Christ within the Immanent Trinity pushed outward as Light, THAT was the Incarnation. What pushed out? Materiality. What is materiality? God as the Many-ness. How do we know this? The Incarnation! How did we come to the notion of Incarnation? Jesus!
Revelation 4: The Pascal Mystery as a Divine Process of Becoming
This revelation of the Cosmic Christ deserves its own essay! The Infinite Creator is simultaneously Being and Becoming. Seen from the standpoint of infinity, the Pascal Mystery is how God “Becomes.” Through the person of Jesus, the Pascal Mystery can be distilled to one historical moment. There was a strong message that the Cosmic Christ wanted to reveal to humanity through Its face, Jesus. That message is this: If the Trinity describes what God IS, and Love describes what God DOES, then the Pascal Mystery describes the flow of God’s Love.
The Pascal Mystery’s distilled moment in time was the death and resurrection of Jesus. This was a bit of a shocker that burst open people’s reality bubbles enough to allow for some serious reflection on that paradox. The fruit of the reflection, guided by the Holy Spirit, was to say that the very flow of love in reality is a cycle of dying and rising, giving and receiving, “letting go, and letting God,” as the saying goes. This flow happens all the time, everywhere through the manifested universe. But the Pascal Mystery is not exclusively found in the Jesus, because as I mentioned previously, all of materiality in whatever size or complexity, contains the same substance as the Infinite Creator. The Pascal Mystery is actually the movement of Love, the second divine law, between the Mind of God (“Father”) and Its holy and unique concept, Finity/Christ (“Son”).
Recall that the Mind of God begot Christ as a concept. The first gift that the Mind of God gave to Christ was total free will. When Christ realized Its own beingness and then saw that It was but a perfect mirroring of the Mind of God and thus totally one with God, Christ returns the gaze of God in a “moment” of ecstatic delight and then reached out to embrace. Together they dance in an endless cycle of giving of self and receiving of “other self.” The gift of self, the love of the other, the mutual delight, is the Holy Spirit begotten from the union of “Father” and the “Son.”
So the reader can see that within the Immanent Trinity, the Godhead, the Pascal Mystery is HOW the dance between three flows. Like sound waves of a divine music traveling concentrically from the epicenter of the Dance, the potential energy that was “contained” in the Mind of God is released into its own beingness as Light (the third divine law) forming ever greater concentric circles of divine radiation. This emanation grows “outward” through the cycles of energy repeating the same Pascal Flow of Love. Not only is energy never lost but through repetitions of transformation (death and resurrection, to use the conventional terms) it reorders itself into new realities that are greater than the sum of the parts. A sort of Gestalt process happens in the reordering of energy. The result of the resurrection, or the reconfiguring of energy on the other side of death, is a new and much grander shift into a higher level of beingness.
I’ll just quickly mention Guirdieff’s Law of Three as a way to illustrate how the Pascal Mystery plays out in reality. The Law of Three holds that there are three forces at work within the Pascal Mystery: Holy the Affirming, Holy the Denying, and Holy the Reconciling. Cynthia Bourgeault describes that the interplay of these three forces working within a wholeness result in not just a mediation between two conflicting parties (Affirming and Denying) but an actual new level of beingness. The Pascal Mystery, conducted by the symphony of the Law of Three, is the music to which the Infinite Creator dances to in all Its Beingness and Becoming. This music can be heard, felt, and fully experienced in every nook and cranny of the manifested universe, no matter how large or small.
How else could humanity have understood such a marvelous cosmic truth if it had not sat long and hard with the seeming paradox of what Christians began to believe as Jesus’ nature as being both divine AND human. As I mentioned before, that the early church conceived of the Incarnation and its implications of Jesus being God Incarnate was, to my mind, no accident. However, with the transmission of a new, pure in light and love, cosmic exposition in the Law of One, might it now be the time to revisit this hallowed dogma and provide an important nuance? Maybe humanity is ready for it and a reappropriation of Jesus as being part of the Many-ness of God, albeit Christ’s face or icon, rather than God’s unique Incarnation, might go a long way in helping humanity 1) better follow Jesus, rather than (only) worshipping him (something he never asked us to do!), and 2) see themselves more clearly as part of the Cosmic Christ, holons of the Infinite Creator.
Cycles of death and rebirth, great and small
The Pascal Mystery is a code phrase for the cycles of death and rebirth, both on the macro scale and on the micro scale, both on the cosmic level and on the human level. Rather than summing up the work of many great writers who have taken on this topic, I am going to jump right into a more of an esoteric lens of the Pascal Mystery.
Reincarnation is one of those ideas that most Christians either don’t consider or may feel guilty in admitting that they have interest in this area. Just recently I had two brief encounters with Catholics who shared with me that they are open to idea of reincarnation, but they quickly countered, “Well, you know… it’s against our religion to think those things.” Rather than against our religion, I believe that its perhaps one of the biggest kept secrets in all of Christendom. This essay is not the place for the reflecting extensively about reincarnation. I’ve actually written a piece on this before and can be accessed here. Nevertheless, if viewed from a higher or broader perspective, reincarnation is not the boogeyman it’s made out to be and for purposes of this essay, I would argue that it falls within the umbrella of the Pascal Mystery.
Just like in a person’s lifetime now, he or she moves forward through levels of consciousness that range from the dualist to the non-dual. Spiritual writers and psychologists alike often lament that most of humanity, as a whole, seem to be adolescent in their emotional and/or spiritual development. Still, when breakthroughs happen, it’s because our ego defenses are thinned by the many moments of great suffering or rare but precious moments of great love.
Episcopalian priest, Cynthia Bourgeault, wrote a compelling book on how the Trinity’s own Becoming follows a fluid and predictable movement involving three divine forces: Holy Affirming, Holy Denying, and Holy Reconciling. She appropriates Gurdjieff’s Law of Three teaching and sets it within the Immanent Trinity and later in the Economic Trinity. From our position in this essay, the Holy Affirming force could be understood as our normal operating egoic functioning; consciousness as usual existing on a “comfortable” level of awareness. Then something happens, either gradually or suddenly, and the force of Holy Denying drops in onto the landscape of our lives. Through intense reckoning, perplexity, and many times great angst, a pathway opens up on “higher ground.” This pathway is the force of Holy Affirming and it is the result of the conflict that often takes place somewhere in the deep mind of the soul. Soul-work done well allows us to see in hindsight that whatever painful experience that brought us to a more inclusive and transcendent level of consciousness was well worth it. From a Pascal Mystery standpoint, the dropping in of the Holy Denying force often signals the death toll for the “old way of being.” It invites us to see that the time of death has arrived for that particular way of being and doing, and a new “resurrected” life awaits. This happens many times throughout someone’s lifetime. And it happens throughout many lifetimes of someone.
Ra indicates that the great task of the third density is to choose a polarity. This is why in the Law of One Material, the third density is known as the “density of choice,” and it is of paramount importance because one’s polarity becomes the particular thrust behind his or hers soul evolution.
76.16 The prelude to choice must encompass the laying of the foundation, the establishment of the illusion and the viability of that which can be made spiritually viable. The remainder of the densities is continuous refining of the choice. This also is greatly lengthened, as you would use the term. The choice is, as you put it, the work of a moment but is the axis upon which the creation turns.
When a new soul is formed that hasn’t experienced third density before, it would exist more or less as a tabula rasa on the soul or deep mind level. After the cessation of their bodies, new souls don’t spend much if any time in life review and are immediately tended to by helpers of angelic beings known in the Law of One Material as the Guardians. Ra illucidates after being questioned who supervises the determination of further incarnation needs and sets up the next incarnation:
48.8 Ra: I am Ra. This is a query with two answers.
Firstly, there are those directly under the Guardians who are responsible for the incarnation patterns of those incarnating automatically, that is, without conscious self-awareness of the process of spiritual evolution. You may call these beings angelic if you prefer. They are, shall we say, “local” or of your planetary sphere.
The seniority of vibration is to be likened unto placing various grades of liquids in the same glass. Some will rise to the top; others will sink to the bottom. Layers and layers of entities will ensue. As harvest draws near, those filled with the most light and love will naturally, and without supervision, be in line, shall we say, for the experience of incarnation.
When the entity becomes aware in its mind/body/spirit complex totality of the mechanism for spiritual evolution it, itself, will arrange and place those lessons and entities necessary for maximum growth and expression of polarity in the incarnative experience before the forgetting process occurs.
The bottom line here is that once a person chooses a polarity, whether the service-to-others path or service-to-self path, they become ready to take the reins of their own soul-evolution. Choosing the manner of the polarity is key because the person has a foundation on which to launch their further soul-exploration and evolution. This cycle of incarnation, death, and reincarnation fits within the overall scope of a person’s personal Pascal Process. They will continue to be reborn until they reach a strong enough polarity to achieve what Ra calls, “harvestability” to the next density. For some, this process is about 75,000 years (the average time for a Master Cycle in third density). For others, they have to repeat third density elsewhere on another planet, until they “graduate” to the next level of consciousness. The good news here is that no one is lost! There is no hell except for the ones we make ourselves either in our lifetime now, or intentionally choose in future lifetimes in order to address a karmic imbalance. All of our rebirths, whether great or small, evidence the flow of Love of the Infinite Creator, the Pascal Mystery.
Karma, soul evolution’s gears in Pascal Mystery’s motor
Karma is the key component of progress in the overall Pascal Process of a soul. In my limited way, I understand it to be the “force” that allows people to stay where they are at on an emotional/spiritual level to the point where a kind of inertia sets in. The common phrases such as, “stuck in his or her ways,” “comfort-zone,” “repeating the same mistakes over and over again…” etc., speak to the phenomenon of karma. Ra gives a good, albeit typically dense, explanation in the following two exchanges between the questioner and themselves. It’s worth reading in their entirety:
18.12Questioner: You stated yesterday that forgiveness is the eradicator of karma. I am assuming that balanced forgiveness for the full eradication of karma would require forgiveness not only of other-selves but forgiveness of self. Am I correct?
Ra: I am Ra. You are correct. We will briefly expand upon this understanding in order to clarify.
Forgiveness of other-self is forgiveness of self. An understanding of this insists upon full forgiveness upon the conscious level of self and other-self, for they are one. A full forgiveness is thus impossible without the inclusion of self.
Ra: I am Ra. Our understanding of karma is that which may be called inertia. Those actions which are put into motion will continue using the ways of balancing until such time as the controlling or higher principle which you may liken unto your braking or stopping is invoked. This stoppage of the inertia of action may be called forgiveness. These two concepts are inseparable.
34.5Questioner: If an entity develops what is called a karma in an incarnation, is there then programming that sometimes occurs so that he will experience catalyst that will enable him to get to a point of forgiveness thereby alleviating the karma?
Ra: I am Ra. This is, in general, correct. However, both self and any involved other-self may, at any time through the process of understanding, acceptance, and forgiveness, ameliorate these patterns. This is true at any point in an incarnative pattern. Thus one who has set in motion an action may forgive itself and never again make that error. This also brakes or stops what you call karma.
As the reader can see, karma and forgiveness are two sides of the same metaphysical coin! They are inseparable, as Ra states above. In the overall flow of the Pascal Process, a soul moves forward in its evolution towards greater and greater consciousness of oneness with the Infinite Creator through exploration of the worlds of separation. The soul makes sense of these “separated” worlds by experiencing the oscillations of karmic flow where one becomes karmically unbalanced and then after a process of dying and rising (perhaps many times!), regains karmic balance. This regaining of karmic balance is another way of saying that a person experiences a metanoia and is now enjoying a higher more transcendent view of reality.
Concluding Remark on the Pascal Mystery
Much more could be written here on incorporating the Law of One Material into the Pascal Mystery. I’ll end this segment by commenting that souls who have achieved a higher perspective, whether in one lifetime or several, come to a deep trust and faith in the Pascal Process of their own journey. They learn that karma is a blessing and gift which can be used in the moment to learn and accelerate soul growth. Both the falling and the recovering from the fall are equal gifts of the Infinite Creator, as Julian of Norwich intuited. What hurts now, helps in the long run.
Revelation 5: Relationality as the Key
The fifth major revelation that the Cosmic Christ revealed to third density humanity through It’s face, Jesus, was the dynamic of relationship being of primary importance in moving forward in spiritual evolution, both on the macro and micro levels. Relationship requires a minimum of two, but as we are discussed previously, no dyad exists alone. Their relationship becomes a third dynamic that both of them “beget” together. In other words, they bring into existence this third “thing” that unites them as a larger unit. It is through the relationship, that much catalyst is generated for soul evolution. Ra gives a most terse reply to the question of the importance of relationships:
33.17Questioner: Do we have enough time left to ask the second part of this question which is to list all major mechanisms designed to provide the catalyst that include action with other-self? Do we have enough time for that?
Ra: I am Ra. You have much time for this, for we may express this list in one of two ways. We could speak infinitely, or we could simply state that any interaction betwixt self and other-self has whatever potential for catalyst that there exists in the potential difference between self and other-self, this moderated and undergirded by the constant fact of the Creator as self and as other-self.
Relationality is the dynamic at play from “top to bottom” in both God as One and God as the Many-ness. And yet, there are different ways that relationality is experienced and used as the force behind catalyst in the soul evolution in different planets. We move now into some esoteric material presented in the Law of One Material. We will see shortly that the Cosmic Christ, through Jesus, made straight the path to God through a particular flavor of relationality that was tailor made for Earth’s third density reality.
Towards the beginning of the transmission of the Law of One, Ra stated that they could not plumb the depths of the distortion that infect our people. Apparently of all of the planets that host third density life, sixty percent are entirely positive, ten percent are entirely negative, and thirty percent consist of “a mixed harvest.” These mixed planets are the battle grounds between positive and negative forces. The negative groups seek to extend their empire and subjugate the population. The positive groups respect the free will of the people and work to protect the sleeping masses from the negatives until they awaken and can lead the charge towards their own liberation. This war takes place largely between fourth density beings and much of the problems we see in our current time have their origin in this higher density. It is important to note here that one should not blame all bad things on “the devil” of negative density beings.
To put this simply, the three-step forward, two-step back pattern of the collective human consciousness is a natural process that would occur without the intervention of higher beings. What the negatives do is to accentuate the two-step backward pattern by very cleverly disguising it as the three-step forward for those who cannot or will not discern. At their wisest, the positives let the native populations alone because they respect the free will of each entity with the honor that this first divine law deserves. When they have intervened, as the Ra and Yahweh groups have, it has never worked out well because the negatives quickly corrupt what was good.
Why are these very highly evolved beings so naïve? My guess is this: they evolved on one of the sixty percent totally positive planets. Whatever catalysts they used during their own progression in the third density were, to my estimation, extremely subtle and what we might say, “heady.” Ra shared that they were gifted by their teachers the concept of the Tarot. Through visualization, they were able to penetrate to satisfying degrees the archetypal mind of the Sun Logos. This understanding, coupled with their highly sexual society, produced strong polarizing energetics that allowed them to be “highly harmonious.” When their teachers introduced the concept of the pyramid as a focuser of etheric light which could be used for healing and initiation, they used it in the appropriate manner for the wellbeing of all. When Ra introduced the pyramid to Earth humanity, the elite quickly capitalized on the opportunity to garner power for themselves and use it to control the masses.
This corruption of the good for the service-to-self path is exactly what happens in mixed harvest planets like Earth. And this negative practice of parasiting the positive is precisely what was so surprising to Ra and Yahweh. It’s logical to assume that their own collective soul growth and harvest to the seventh density entails them learning how to most perfect the balance of love and wisdom. The sixth density, after all, is the density of unity. At this level, an individual being as resolved any paradoxes within themselves (total integration of shadow and light within), become one in consciousness with all others in their society (social-memory complex), and put together in perfect balance the lessons of the fourth density (love) and the fifth density (wisdom).
Put differently, Ra and Yahweh’s primary lesson that remains for them in this octave is to redress their love-over-wisdom imbalance which they possess due to their own very harmonious collective soul evolution (a common trait for those evolving on one of the 60% totally positive planets). As such, they are tied to Earth’s third density humanity because they are karmically responsible in part for their positive attempts going wildly awry. Their relationship with Earth’s humanity is part of their own collective Pascal Mystery that affords them the opportunity to progress further towards their Omega point.
All of this is to say that if Ra could not “plumb the depths of the distortions of Earth’s humanity,” they likewise could not ascertain the specific remedy that was needed to cut through the distortions in order to increase the harvest of humanity to the fourth density, which was rapidly approaching. They couldn’t see. The Yahweh group couldn’t see, either. But the Infinite Creator could and did see. I would argue that all along, the plan was for the Infinite Creator’s Cosmic Christ to enter into Earth’s third density’s mixed energetics in the fullness of time to reveal the Archetype of archetypes: That Love is a Kenotic Flow between a communion of three who eternally die and rise in each other and for each other. This Truth, this Archetype, transcends and includes all of the “lower” Logic and sub-logic archetypes.
How did the Cosmic Christ hope to portray relationality as a shortcut in spiritual evolution? The plan seems simple to see “here on the ground.” The plan was to use Jesus to enkindle the hearts of people so that their polarity increased to the vibrational threshold of fourth density (positive), 51% positive polarity or heart chakra activation. As we will see further in the next revelation below, the Cosmic Christ sent Jesus (who freely volunteered) as a realized fourth density being who was able to (almost) fully activate his fourth density body within the third density. His presence just electrified the heart chakras of people and they fell in love with him. They still fall in love with him. And through falling in love with a person, they fell in love with the “Father,” whom they began to feel shared the same substance as the Infinite Creator. Jesus presence revealed that God could be related to as a Person. Through this I/Thou relationship, a person’s heart is opened and this allows for access to the higher energy centers (chakras) so they can be activated.
To sum up this section, I posit that all mixed harvest planets, which as we have seen is thirty percent of the total third density planets, probably have some sort of Jesus Event or group event that essentially reveals the same relational path. To put it visually, if the waters of distortion of a mixed planet like ours are so murky as to not be penetrable, an I/Thou relational model with a loving, merciful deity splits the sea so a bridge of dry land forms from the backwater village of duality to the glorious, golden city of the non-dual state.
Revelation 6: Earth’s Imminent Shift to Fourth Density
We now arrive at the sixth revelation of the Cosmic Christ through the person of Jesus: the planetary shift into the fourth density. Behind the scenes, the Sun was moving rapidly towards an area of the Galactic Logoic Body that resonated at higher vibration. As planned, the Sun and all of its planets would experience an energetic increase. Session nine in the Law of One Material provides quite an interesting description of the shift.
9.4Questioner: The way I understand the process of evolution [of a] planetary population is that [a] population has a certain amount of time to progress. This is generally divided into three 25,000-year cycles. At the end of 75,000 years the planet progresses itself. What caused this situation to come about… preciseness of the years, 25,000 years, etc.? What set this up to begin with?
Ra: I am Ra. Visualize, if you will, the particular energy which, outward flowing and inward coagulating, formed the tiny realm of the creation governed by your Council of Saturn. Continue seeing the rhythm of this process. The living flow creates a rhythm which is as inevitable as one of your timepieces. Each of your planetary entities began the first cycle when the energy nexus was able in that environment to support such mind/body experiences. Thus, each of your planetary entities is on a different cyclical schedule as you might call it. The timing of these cycles is a measurement equal to a portion of intelligent energy.
This intelligent energy offers a type of clock. The cycles move as precisely as a clock strikes your hour. Thus, the gateway from intelligent energy to intelligent infinity opens regardless of circumstance on the striking of the hour.
In 17.22, Ra stated that Jesus knew that Earth was in its last portion of Master Cycle. One can feel that urgency and longing that Jesus had in Luke’s Gospel narrative when he said, “”I have come to set the world on fire, and I wish it were already burning!” Luke 12:49. He embodied the Love density (fourth density) as purely as possible and came to know as his vocation the enkindling of the heart chakras of humanity. He came to light the match and turn up the gas in our hearts so that our souls would be ready for the shift when it came. The Cosmic Christ planned all along to break into this portion of third density with the great trump card, the Jesus Event.
It is of paramount importance here to say that a battle of sorts is now being waged within deeply hidden arenas between factions variant degrees of positive polarity and highly negative factions for how the narrative of disclosure will unfold. This disclosure will not only reveal the existence of extra terrestrials and the fact that there has been a seventy-year governmental cover up but more shocking will be how the elite behind the Earth’s governments and power centers have committed heinous crimes against humanity without impunity for eons, with a particularly uptake of negativity beginning in first decades of the last century. This essay will not be an expose of this material. But let me reassure the reader that the post-disclosure world will be very different than the pre-disclosure one. Whether there will be a Disclosure Event where a massive downloading of information happens at once or a gradual disclosure that will take decades to unravel is now what is being decided upon.
The reason why I bring up this highly controversial topic of disclosure in this essay is to position it within the greater parameters of the Pascal Mystery. Karma on a grand scale is being balanced through the intense catalysts of current events, visible and invisible. This is all part of the process of dying and rising. Earth’s third density is ending and is currently in the very last gasps of breath. We are in a collective dying phase but soon will experience a collective rising. It is indeed a benevolent Universe and when we can surrender into the flow of Love in our own lives, we will radiate a infectious joy that enlightens the hearts of others. When we do this, we join in the same ministry of Jesus who so longed to set the world afire with the Love of God.
The Return of Jesus
Before we end this essay, I want to briefly mention what Ra has to say about their understanding of return of Jesus.
Ra: I am Ra. I will attempt to sort out this question. It is difficult. This entity became aware that it was not an entity of itself but operated as a messenger of the One Creator whom this entity saw as love. This entity was aware that this cycle was in its last portion and spoke to the effect that those of its consciousness would return at the harvest.
The particular mind/body/spirit complex you call Jesus is, as what you would call an entity, not to return except as a member of the Confederation occasionally speaking through a channel. However, there are others of the identical congruency of consciousness that will welcome those to the fourth density. This is the meaning of the returning.
Put differently, the meaning of the return of Christ can be seen more clearly now with the information from the Law of One. The Return is the Shift. Ra says above that Jesus “spoke to the effect that those of [his] consciousness would return at the harvest.” Those of his consciousness would be fourth density beings heralding the transition into fourth density. Many if not most of the children now born, and maybe mine included, are what Ra calls, “double-bodied” Wanderers.
63.13Questioner: Now these entities incarnate into a third-density vibratory body. I am trying to understand how this transition takes place from third to fourth density. I will take the example of one of these entities of which we are speaking who is now in a third-density body. He will grow older and then will it be necessary that he die from the third-density physical body and reincarnate in a fourth-density body for that transition?
Ra: I am Ra. These entities are those incarnating with what you may call a double body in activation. It will be noted that the entities birthing these fourth-density entities experience a great feeling of, shall we say, the connection and the use of spiritual energies during pregnancy. This is due to the necessity for manifesting the double body.
This transitional body is one which will be, shall we say, able to appreciate fourth-density vibratory complexes as the instreaming increases without the accompanying disruption of the third-density body. If a third-density entity were, shall we say, electrically aware of fourth-density in full, the third-density electrical fields would fail due to incompatibility.
In other words, the Cosmic Christ is returning now, in our midst, through the higher vibratory fourth density beings that have arrived early to the planetary shift. Ra mentions that this is great privilege for them to be able to incarnate and participate in the transitioning over into the higher density.
Let me make this clear, we don’t need any of this esoteric material, really. It’s all smaller components that make up the intricacies of the Many-ness of the Infinite Creator. It’s sufficient to say that when more and more people open their hearts to each other and grow individually and collectively towards greater conscious union with each other and with God, then whatever “hundredth monkey” that finally tips the scale towards shifting into higher beingness, that will be the Return of Christ.
Nevertheless, one never fully knows what the Infinite Creator will do. Perhaps Jesus will return, as a member of the Confederation of Planets in the Service of the Infinite Creator, in a space ship! And behold, a voice booms down from the sky saying, “Surprise!”
Implications for this Christology and Concluding Remarks
I had long read that God is One and the Many, and then when I studied for my Masters in Pastoral Ministry years ago, I encountered Jesuit theologian, Karl Rahner’s, dictum: The Immanent Trinity is the Economic Trinity and the Economic Trinity is the Immanent Trinity. The message that I was picking up was that God is creation. But Christians were quick to say that was pantheism, a heresy. Instead, Christian theologians were very careful to speak about God and creation in terms of panentheism: God is in creation and creation is in God. Moreover, traditional Christian dogma holds that Jesus and the “Father” share the same substance (homoousios) which is categorically different than the substance of creation. So it seemed that there were two substances out there? Yet one God? I was picking up conflicting messages but whatever restlessness it stirred in me was unperceivable. It remained quite in the background.
Then when I read the Law of One material, they seemed to have some “insider” information on the being that later became known as Jesus. After more than two years of delving into this material, falling more in love with the person of Jesus, his message, and most importantly for me, developing a centering prayer practice that led me to unitive consciousness, I put together some pieces that make sense to me. In other words, once I began enjoying the unitive condition of soul where I know myself as being one with God on an experiential level, I then could better synthesize this material so that a narrative emerged that satisfied me to some degree. Whether I am right or wrong, I know that I am loved deeply, that I am contained in a larger reality that transcends and includes me. I got the “who am I” part right so that I could attempt the “how did we get here” part with a bit more clarity and courage.
The Law of One Material, for me, is key to unlocking the conundrum of that pesky question, “If there is only one God, how can there be two substances out there?” My response? There is only one God, for who else is there? There is only one substance, that of God! There is only one Incarnation which took place when the Godhead threw out Its divine inner life as manifestation via the throbs of Love. Jesus does share the same substance as the Father AND so do we, so does all of creation. It is all ONE, after all. Perhaps a new word that somehow combines pantheism and panenthism is overdue. Maybe “panambitheism” might work? (“ambos” is Latin for “both)
The bottom line for me is this, rather than God and creation possessing different substances (which as I said, doesn’t make sense), they possess different levels of gnosis. Therefore the distinction between God and creation is on the level of awareness of oneness. And that’s exactly the point! What good is the concept of “Finity” if you can’t use it for self-exploration? So God as the Many, or Cosmic Christ, seems to operate from varied levels of conscious awareness of this union, and therein lies the difference between the Godhead and creation.
What is the point of existing at various levels of awareness, the reader might ask? Nothing less than Love! The force of love, the second divine Law, resurfaces eternally in creation every time a “part of God” recognizes on some level itself in other “part of God.” As Cynthia Bourgeault, quoting Jacob Boehme, states in her marvelous article on this Christian mystic, “For so,” Boehme says, “the eternal delight becomes perceivable, and this perceiving of the Unity is called LOVE.” The entire creation as the Infinite Creator eternally delights every time and everywhere the perception of unity becomes perceivable.
As far as my limited vision can see, the implications for a Christianity seen from a “Law of One Material” perspective would be varied. For mystical Christianity, not much, I think, would change. Mystics have always intuited this kind of knowing and many enjoy the communion of being with the Infinite Creator, as the Infinite Creator, because they are the Word returned (cf John 1:1)! For conventional Christianity, some pretty strong disillusionment might ensue. And yet! As I have tried to lay out here in this essay, Christianity has intuited cosmic truths from the very beginning. In fact, I would argue that incorporating Christianity into the metaphysics laid out in the Law of One Material provides a wonderful corrective for some of the dead ends found in the lived expression of Christianity. The dead ends would be places in the Christian Body that relish the “two-steps back” part of the dance of spiritual evolution and have made these two-step back movements their dwelling place. From a unitive consciousness standpoint, it’s not hard to spot the two-steps back movements by their sour fruit. Communities and ideologies stuck on the two-steps back always lead to 1) privileging orthodoxy over orthopraxis, 2) the development of elitism or tribalism, 3) an impulse to separate themselves from the rest, 4) desirous of conformity rather than celebrating diversity within unity, and 5) scapegoating. These five tendencies often led to a strong and paranoid power elite that increasingly busy themselves with deciding who is in and who is out of their flock. Dissention is not tolerated well.
Karl Rahner, SJ, along with the chorus of Catherine Lagunga, Rev. Cynthia Bourgeault, Richard Rohr, OFM, Thomas Keating, OSCO, and Mike Crosby, OFM, Cap, prophesized once that if Christianity doesn’t move into the mystical levels, it would die. On an intuitive level, many Christians sense this truth. This is certainly true of the Emergent or Emerging Church movement which seems to be a positive outgrowth of Christians who seek unity within diversity through their commitment to dialog centered on the love and imitation of Jesus.
However, on a hidden level, Rahner’s warning may be a strong hypothesis whose validity is about to be strongly tested. What will literalist Christians do if they learn through disclosure that much of their religion was coopted by negative factions early on in its development? That Constantine’s move to make Christianity the official state religion was the most overt example of this coopting that is still ongoing today in different ways? How will they react to the news that some hidden influential people in the Vatican and elsewhere over the centuries have indirectly or directly promulgated a service-to-self agenda in cooperation with a much larger negative fourth density faction? And, for that matter, what will they do if they learn about the existence of extra terrestrials and then wonder whether Jesus should also be Lord over them, too? So many difficult questions…
My contention is that these Christians will enter some strong disillusionment and perhaps reactive tendencies at first. Then they will either drop the whole darn thing and wander around stupefied in a kind of pervasive existential crisis, or they may risk dipping into the mystical waters of Christianity which includes and transcends the exoteric and the esoteric wisdom. From a deep mystical level, fear would assuage, and all the pieces could be seen in their proper perspective. The presence of the negatives in Christianity (and other religions) is actually a part of the whole picture. Moreover, we would all understand more clearly how the Infinite Creator’s revealing Itself to humanity came to us through the hidden conflicts between the dual polarities. In a word, the “devil” works for God!
So, indeed as Rahner and some leading spiritual writers contend, Christianity will morph into a truly wisdom based mystical approach to view reality or it will die. Of course, from our view in this essay, dying and rising is the whole point, now isn’t it!
