Bread of the Presence – Monoatomics, Akhenaton, Serabit El-Khadim and Feeding the Ka

While I do not encourage or recommend ingestion and attempted integration of the white powder monoatomic gold (MFKZT) for anyone, there is sufficient information available regarding this process, extreme physical longevity, the cessation of aging, bi-location and highly ascended states. Just as symbol exists across many conceptual states of mind and dynamic associations, so does the allegorical Philosopher’s Stone of alchemy. As above, so below…as within, so without. The formulation and manifestation of MFKZT exists in several parts and the monoatomics require additional charge and subtle integration within the body. Each chakra has its corollary and attributing counterpart within the Ka in the form of glands. The subtle connecting threads to the ethereal, or light body can be enhanced and with proper care and preparation can be nurtured to assist in the ascension process. Each gland has its own monoatomic counterpart within the PGM group. High-spin, orbitally rearranged monoatomic gold changes the Pineal Gland and activates the Crown Chakra to an extraordinary degree. (See “Silence is Golden” Daily Mediation Post)

The harmonics, ratios, mixes, dietary preparation and ingestion schedules will vary from person to person. Without proper preparations, this process can both retard and potentially cease the inner progress. If you are not actively seeing with third sight and are not able to experience reconciliation of higher mind/sight with the material presentation (the world around you) in a harmonious, inner way…what I call Fifth State (the allegorical, inner Pyramid constructed), do not even consider this path. The ability to function in an abstracted, heavily symbolic mind-state while remaining in this world’s collapsed realities requires significant training, initiation and a high degree of integration of the Great Work.

The sacred geometries must be fully understood in both esoteric and sacred context before serious contemplation of this process should be considered. MFKZT addiction must be thoroughly contemplated and trade-offs considered. Perhaps a deep, exhaustive, symbolic and esoteric examination of Frank Herbert’s early allegorical and fictional portrayal of the Spice Melange may prove beneficial for initiates and those well on the Path. This is a path taken by few and must be taken alone for the purposes of service to mankind in my humble opinion.

Yes, I know how to make it and no, I may not tell you. I’ve left all the pointers necessary, scattered throughout this blog.

Egyptian Roots of the Bread of the Presence – MFKZT and Alchemy

This was a very interesting lecture given by Vincent Bridges in the past year. His presentation of John Dee’s work in Prague as well as his historical synopsis of the history of Alchemy is quite interesting and informative as well as being entertaining. The work he presents on the geometric and mathematical application of the Enochian Tables as well as Sephirothic constructs in euclidian context is a good introduction for those interested in a primer for the Sacred Sciences.

It is my hope that in the future he will go further into the harmonics and resonance waves associated with the geometries, particularly as they relate to the volumetrics of the solids and nested spaces. I posit that these resonance harmonics are directly tied to what Rupert Sheldon calls Morphogenic Fields; the self organizing sub-space fields that determine the structures of life in physically manifested realities. For those interested in further study of number theory and sacred geometries (Sacred Sciences) as they relate to esoteric principles, I highly recommend the works of R. A. Schwaller Delubicz as well as those of his wife Isha.

The Role of Thought – “Thinking for Yourself”  thought1

I have no idea how many times I’ve heard that saying, “Think for Yourself”. We all have. It actually wasn’t until much later in life, that I began to understand that adage.

Just this morning, I got a call from a good friend of mine in California. He wanted some advice on handling a somewhat political issue, as a result of dealing with some interesting people problems. We spoke for a while and it became clear that the issues he was discussing are all too common in business and corporations, even families and churches, any assembled group of humans really. When the normal daily routine is disturbed for a continuing amount of time, people will create drama, they will go to the point of actually creating conflict where there is none (in some cases, people do this when everything is fine as well). Rumor get manufactured, cliques get established and mob mentality settles in. At this point, people are not thinking for themselves.

We go through life, dependent on others for information. We have limited senses and our bodies can not function very well in modern society without guidance. When we are very young, we are quite literally dependent on those around us for everything. As we get older, we learn to do things for ourselves, but amazingly, many continue to rely on others for thought. I am astonished by the volume of quotes, rehashed newspaper or television commentary I hear daily by those around me. In many cases, the people regurgitating the information to me think they have the thought that they are conveying to me, even though I know, it came from someone else.

There are certain truths on this plane which need to be experienced to be thoroughly understood. They are important ones too, and in order to get to the point where one starts to become aware of them , it is necessary for one to think for themself. Jed McKenna has a great quote which is very apropos here: “Think for yourself and figure out what’s true. That’s it. Ask yourself what’s true, until you know”.

The esoteric orders, the Mystery Schools, to some point, even some of the mainstream religions, have at their core, great teachings which help one to move forward with tools and knowledge to allow themselves to functionally think for themselves. This is about our own journey, our personal adventure here and now. When we take someone else’s adventure and internalize it and try to make it our own, we experience conflict, we get the schizophrenic state that so many succumb to in this age. Our own stories are what are important and our own experience is what we learn from best.

By accepting another persons truth we limit our selves. By accepting dogmatic teachings and authoritative notions from government, or religion, a boss, a person of status or someone you admire, you degrade our own worth and devalue the experiences in your life. Be yourself and think for yourself and the world will reward you with riches and wonder and you will experience an amazing life. I usually end these with some text in blue and a thought for the day.. today, I’d just like you to think..for yourself. =)

Your experience is the truth.

Book Review – The Meaning of Masonry

The Meaning of Masonry – W.L. Wilmshurst momwilmhurst

My father gave me this book as a gift right before I got my First Degree in the Blue Lodge. The author does a very good job of covering some of the deeper aspects of the Craft within Freemasonry as well as very good commentary on some of the historical background of the degrees and Rites.

The real value in this piece, is the abstraction of the Degree initiations and their respective symbolism and philosophy. While there are many, many books on masonic symbolism (see series on Symbol), this book does a very good job of tying the core Blue Lodge journey together with the articles and symbols (example: a very good section on the Apron) associated with each degree through the Royal Arch. The author’s writing style is very natural and flowing and a sense of quiet reverence and respect is felt when reading it. There is mention and commentary on the further degrees and Rites as well as a refreshing dive into the mystical heritage (Mystery Schools) and alchemical tenets of the Order.

While the original publishing is relatively dated ( 1927; my copy is a 1980 revised edition), the content is no less applicable today as it was then. In many cases, the tempo and subject matter are better suited than most of the more recent published works, for the newest generation of Brethren joining for esoteric reasons, rather than purely fraternal or political ones. As I mentioned earlier, this book does have sentimental value to me ( my father and many family members are active in Freemasonry, Eastern Star etc ), but I genuinely see this work as a solid addition to any personal Masonic library… Knife and Fork Masons included 😉

Unity and Separation unity

We all have our relationships in life that play out in various ways. Our bankers handle our funds, dentists clean and repair our teeth, family members and friends support our well being etc. In the western world we live in a mode of separation.. church and state, employer and employee, science and spirituality. As the scientific method and industry evolved into what they are today, the notions of compartmentalization and reductionism began to infiltrate our way of thought. In a sense, these divisionary concepts are our models of how we view the world around us, when the fundamental truth is quite opposite.

While our social structure has been hierarchical for some time, our mode of thought has not. When we see ourselves as separate from everything and everyone around us, we limit ourselves greatly and perpetuate a constant internal state of conflict. Although there are times when we want to reach out, to express ourselves and really connect with others, we often times don’t because of these constructed divisions. We create excuses (illusions)…that person is too ______ or I am not _______ enough. Where exactly do you think these thoughts are coming from?

As one begins to see the similarities, the patterns, principles and universal laws that exist in the world around us, it starts to become clear that everything is related. Shared existence is intrinsic to the entire fabric of reality..not separation. As Above, so Below.. or as Within, so Without. Things in the world are not separate.. we perceive them to be, so it appears to us as that they are. This is a very simple concept yet is causes a life of anguish and suffering for so very many people. Separation is the child of ego and while you and I seem worlds apart, we are not. We are limited and separated by our egos, not by our true selves. In regards to our journey on the path and seeing the physical experience as a mystical adventure, what is the relationship of unity to meditation and how do we overcome separation at all levels?

The Role of Silence goldthought – “Silence is Golden”

We’ve all heard the saying: Silence is Golden (Speech is Silver) but not many think about that age old axiom. Meditation has been called the “creation in the silence” by many and references to isolation and the removal of exterior influences abound in the meditation texts for over 4,000 years. While the esoteric references to the subject of gold are too numerous to mention in this brief text, a few dovetail nicely for our needs today. We will look at some additional background information pertaining to some intriguing aspects of a few of these references as well.

The first and most widely referenced allegorical golden symbol is the sun, our provider, nourisher and catalyst for creation on Earth. Its constant energetic action is reflected in the mind’s constant awareness, even in sleep and the seemingly never ending internal chatter of thought. We’ve recently touched upon the symbol of the sun as it relates to the chakra system(See Daily Focus Meditation from 9SEP2009). Although seldom documented, the chakra system is closely tied to the endocrine system. Each chakra corresponds to a gland in the body. NOTE: If there is enough interest, I will explore these pineal1relationships in detail at a future time. Additionally, each gland has an affinity or pairing with a specific noble metal, in this case the pineal gland has correspondence with gold as a physical analogue to the esoteric evolution and perfection of consciousness; both the Philosopher’s Stone of the Middle Ages.  As you begin to understand sacred sciences and the unified teaching of Pharaonic Egypt, you will see how our differentiated sciences were once an integrated set of teachings. In short, there are relationships between mathematics, chemistry, music, physics and other disciplines which are not expressed in the modern scientific models for various reasons. Concepts such as shared resonance and harmonic proportion, in this instance there are analogous tendencies in say, the orbitals and vibrational harmonics of the gold atom which correspond to the composition, function, vibrational nature and structure of the pineal gland in a mutually beneficial way. These interactions can effect the spin or state of the gold atoms and conversely, the activity of the pineal gland, which relates to the third eye (see series on Symbol) or mind’s eye (6th chakra); a key component in the meditation act. The fact that the practice of alchemy concerns the transmutation of base elements into gold (see today’s Book Review) is another well known association to this metal that most alive today are aware of. We now have a very basic connection between gold and silence, in the context of meditation and alchemy.

It is in the silence or stillness that one is brought face to face with their own emotions and thoughts. During meditation, we access an inner realm which ceases to exist solely in either physical or non-physical manifest realities, yet shares aspects of both. The union of the above and the below; the higher and lower. I recently heard it said (see Movie Review from today), that the crucifixion scene itself, is a images-1pointer to the mechanics and mysteries of mediation and the Inner tradition. As the Master teacher’s hands were nailed down, or pinned (we also see a veiled astrotheological reference, as the stasis is in space and time as well; A “fixed-point” neither on earth or in the heavens) we see the pointer to stillness and reckoning with the internal. As one sits with themselves and begins to delve into their own being, their own recesses of consciousness and identity, their emotional constructs of the ego, the mediation process begins.

As we learn to slowly push away the constant inner dialog of the ego and begin to bear witness to our own thoughts as they appear and dissolve, we open the inner dialogue with the higher self and the Alchemical Great Work commences. In regards to our journey on the path and seeing the physical experience as a mystical adventure, what is the relationship of silence to consciousness and how does silence aid us in our non-meditative states?
