The mind is a powerful instrument. Life is not permanently changed by miracles but by the development of consciousness and science combined. The mind as it has been for humanity since the beginning of life on earth has not brought forth the perfection or the divine illumination that is needed to stop suffering. Something is not being understood. The facts that have shattered hope are the unequal development of individuals. There needs to be an immense action of stable light, a higher level of consciousness, for a cosmic harmony and unity to flood across the planet.
The world has seen many great teachers and the world remains divided. Life must be transformed. Human nature must change. Some look for the answer exclusively above. The light, the answer is right here in our body and life. None can reach heaven that has not passed through hell. What good do our meditations; visions and bliss states serve if we do nothing to transform existence here on earth? Everyone enters a battle field that lives in a physical body. It is our role to embrace, understand both the dark and the light. We cannot permanently heal unless we have the wisdom gained when we hit rock bottom. Usually, we do not descend to the base unless we have touched the heights. Both extremes are part of the journey of the soul.
We have the ability to bring down the Light, the Divine nature and strength into the parts of the mind that need to be healed. We need to understand the highest and the lowest. The Light will gradually pervade our darkness. In one of my books, My Own Tree, the cover displays the eternal Tree. “The eternal Tree roots are above and its branches downward,” says the Katha Upanishad. The future moves downward penetrating our confusion on all levels of mind. At some point, awareness and healing begins to seriously take place.
Have you noticed that through both the good and bad, we step upward followed by a step downward? To transform life, we experience it. It is the awakened and individualized consciousness energy in us that does all the work, automatically. Regardless of how good and spiritual we may feel or appear, everyone experiences these swings in consciousness. At the same time, we are never given too much more than we can handle.
There is a law of ascent and descent which appears to be a contradiction. Perhaps, it is because most people are not aware that they are fighting a battle on various levels of mind. It is uncomfortable knowing we have a black shadow existing somewhere in us. The good part is we have a corresponding Light. Light and darkness is our double nature…animal and Divine. There is only one single substance. There is a positive in all negatives. We need to be aware and work from both ends. Face the energy of darkness and heal it with love and the power of Light. There is a treasure within the cave. Connect the two and create a perfect circle. The finite and the infinite are one. We are destined to create victory here in the physical body. The level of our vibration is the key to transformation. Clearly said, we have a choice at all times to face, heal and use the energy of our Divine nature or continue to use the energy of the animal nature. Now, this brings up an interesting point in my mind…if humanity is ever going to be at peace, not only must individual consciousness be raised, the cellular energy and memory of the physical body be healed through a deliberate evolution.
