Spirituality and Religion:

The Perpetual  Raising


             The well-read student of spiritual literature will note, that standing behind all of the worlds’ scriptures and Holy books, there have been individuals of great insight.  To these few specific Seers, Authors, Visionaries, Healers and Philosophers, the rest of humanity owes the ultimate debt of gratitude.  It is They who have pioneered powerful spiritual paths, so that the rest of our species can gain valuable insight into the nature of reality, of truth, God, and the purpose of life.  The truly great teachers of all time, have taught the lessons of spirituality and the value of right living.  By many they have been referred to as “Masters”. 

            A Master is a spiritual seeker who has reached a very notable degree of self realization.  By virtue of this, they have also reached a notable degree of God realization.  A Master has plumbed the depths of consciousness, and found that humanity is One at the most fundamental level of existence.  Each of us is a part of that which is called God.  All of the Masters throughout the ages, (such as Christ, Buddha, Lao Tse) have taught that it is within the power of every individual, to become as self realized as they, and to SEE as they SEE.  We too may know God just as we can know our own selves.  It is within our power to understand the purpose of life, and the greater potentials of the human spirit.  To do this, we need only apply ourselves to the same universal principles which underlie all Teachings, Religions and Philosophies.  We too may perform “miracles”, upon realizing that all the resources for happiness, personal power, strength, love and clarity, lie within. 

The only true obstacle to our spiritual/evolutionary progress has always been human-made ideas, which usually fall far short of the values and precepts of Cosmic/Natural Law.  When we go beyond specific cultures, nationalities, ideologies, political and social systems, it is then that our true purpose and essence as conscious beings is revealed.  We are not of nations but of God.  Our true self is not composed of thought or social imagery, it is made of consciousness.  In consciousness we know our fellow human beings as a part of ourselves.  We are all One because we are all composed of the same universal consciousness, (God/unified field).

Having identified ourselves with consciousness, we understand that humanity does not merely reflect Divine influence.  We are in fact, each a fragment of God.  Our true place and right focus is therefore within God and Nature, so as to live and prosper through Spiritual/Natural Laws.  Our true purpose is to carry out the designs of Nature and Divine Order, so as to build a truly progressive world society, and a truly profound inner self.  We are conduits for Divine expression, or in other words, Universal Consciousness. That which organizes the universe also organizes our cellular structures, inter-galactic events, and our very existence as human beings.  To understand consciousness is to understand that organizing influence.  To attain greater and greater mastery of consciousness, (to expand it) is our very purpose, as cells within the body of God.  These are some of the major tenets, teachings and purposes of the Masters throughout the ages.

            Let us seek the very highest aspirations, and the most noble of human potentials.  It is the mark of the genius and the revolutionary, to not settle for anything less than profound self realization.  Let us all seek to be Masters and to embrace Cosmic Purpose. To do this, we must Intend greater Mastery, and by the same token, gain greater Mastery of Intent.

The fact that the Intent of the Master is “perpetual raising”,  is hereby explained;

1)  “Perpetual raising” is the Intent that a Master uses,  in order to retain the basic status/state of Mastery.  It is the Intent of total, ongoing, spiritual progressiveness moment to moment, of every day.  It is the focus upon the building of love and clarity without end.  Perpetual raising is therefore the unceasing focus upon the expansion of consciousness, both within the self, and throughout the world.

The Master knows that it is through Intent that all things are manifest.  Every thought we have and every emotion we generate, begins to create in the surrounding environment a reflection of that inner creation.  To think and feel is to create far more than changes in ones’ neurochemistry, it is to CAUSE TRANSFORMATION both within and without.  Every thought, emotion, image and belief we maintain, is founded upon an underlying Intent.  Every Intent we employ is responsible for inner and outer manifestations. Intent is That in God and the soul which, CAUSES SHIFTS TO BE MADE IN THE UNIFIED FIELD, (PSYCHIC OCEAN) WHICH SURROUNDS US.  These unified field shifts then lend themselves to similar manifestations on the physical plane.

 Those familiar with Intent know that it is wise to Intend into place, only those qualities and conditions of living which are most beneficial.  One such Intent is that of perpetual raising.  Perpetual raising implies the continual self-elevation of ones’ level of consciousness, as a first priority in life. With this Intent in place as our first priority, we make best use of every single circumstance and opportunity in life, for the progressive expansion of consciousness. Perpetual raising is the Intent through which the consciousness of the spiritual practitioner is maintained as a dynamic psychic engine, WHICH CONSTANTLY GENERATES HIGHER LOVE, CLARITY AND DIVINE CONNECTION ON A DAILY BASIS.  This Intent must be conducted/maintained bodywide.

2)   The Master knows that Intent is a bodywide phenomena.  Every cubic inch of body tissue acts as an individual transceiver of psychic information.  This information or knowledge is sent and received from our bodies and minds in the form of feelings, thoughtforms, common thoughts, images and ideals.  That which we believe in and focus upon therefore, is that which is done, (accomplished/manifest). Like “spiritual radios” our bodies are in fact a collection of transceivers, and as such, have continuous contact with the psychic fields of Energy at large in the environment.  This implies we have continuous psychic contact with all people on this planet, (the World Mind) at all times.  Their joys and sorrows are ours to share.  Their thoughts and beliefs directly influence our own, and vice versa.

Every cubic inch of the body is constantly sending and receiving energy, awareness and Intent, (the components of consciousness).  Intent is the most causal, (manifesting-changing) factor for consciousness, and therefore all of the universe.  This is true because consciousness underlies all manifested things, and Intent is its guiding factor. The Intent housed in every cubic inch of our physical and spiritual bodies, as well as the Intent housed in the fields at large, (unified field/God) guides all of our experiences.  It may be said then, that Intent is the instrument through which God manifests the Evolutionary Plan. Intent is of a personal, group, planetary and universal, (Divine) nature.  It determines how our awareness and energy function at every level of our being.  Only the mastery of Intent is the ultimate personal mastery.

3)  Consciousness is “fluid” in nature.  It has a  strong tendency to flow together to unite minds, combine feelings, jointly form thoughts, and cause group mind action.  The body is a group mind, and an excellent example of these universal principles.. Our bodies are a collection of cell groups. Each cell possesses its own consciousness, and therefore its own Energy, Awareness and Intent.  This energy, awareness and Intent of many individuals working together in cooperation and specialization, creates an extremely strong collective force.  Thus the consciousness of individual cells form cellular group minds, or tissues.  Tissues comprise larger group minds, or organs.  All of the organs of the body compose the overall group mind of the human physical form.  At each of these levels of group mind organization, the degree, power and abilities exhibited by our cells become geometrically increased, due to the group mind principle.  This principle of natural law and consciousness states that; the resulting force generated from the combining of like minds, (or cells, atoms, life forms, etc.) is geometrically greater than the sum of its parts.  In other words, minds/cells which are focused together upon a common theme, create a mutual force which is not merely additive, but vastly more powerful than any one individual or group of individuals.  This accounts for the fact that the human body is a truly incredible and diverse instrument.  It is the cooperation and specialization of many individuals, to make a sophisticated whole.  There is much to be learned about Cosmic principles and their application, from our own bodies.

          The basic natural and spiritual law of the universe, is that all things are composed of consciousness, and founded upon it.  That which we call our soul, as well as the atoms, molecules and cells of our physical bodies, are therefore founded upon and sustained by, the same basic substance, (Intent, awareness and energy combined).  Each of the smaller group minds, (every cubic inch of tissue) corresponds to specific portions of the spiritual body, or soul.

        A mastery of Intent bodywide, is a significant mastery of ones’ state of consciousness.  A greater mastery of ones’ state of consciousness bodywide, is a greater mastery of the Soul/Body interface.  Through a refined body-wide awareness, the soul makes optimum use of the body as its instrument on the physical plane. Since the terms “soul” and “consciousness” are basically synonymous, a greater mastery of consciousness implies a greater body-mind-soul rapport, or unity.  It also implies that we are capable of great rapport and unity with our fellow human beings, who are also “souls in bodies”, (beings of consciousness).  

         In meditation we find that we are not thought, but the creator of thought.  We are not emotion itself or images themselves, but the creators of both feelings and images. We are That which Watches and Intends behind all of lifes’ circumstances.  When it is understood that the body, mind and soul all operate by virtue of this Watcher/Manifestor, (consciousness) it is then that life gains a profound unity and comprehensiveness.  As souls, (consciousness) we must cultivate strong minds and bodies, so that these may serve as the ideal spiritual instruments.  To do this we must purify our Intentions.  Because the body has Intent and also memory, it is necessary to purify the Intentions lodged within the physical tissues.  This can be done by cultivating the following Intentions body-wide, (as well as within the mind);

A) The Intent of self knowingness, or awareness of awareness.  This is known as  increasing ones degree of Clarity.

B) The Intent of the perpetual raising of consciousness, (and in each Intent-element or cubic inch of the body) as a  coordinated whole. This is known as the employment of Right Intent, and is accomplished as Right Action.

C) The Intent of creating progressively greater Love and high feelings.  This is known as the increasing of ones’ Vibration.

D) The Intent of the enlargement or magnification of spiritual benefit for all beings.  This is known as Expansion, or “expanding the psychic area of effect”.

E)  The Intent of psychic attunement with Nature, ones’ own soul and God.  This is known as gaining “Right Alignment”.

F)  The Intent to maintain higher levels of vital force, necessary for greater spiritual, mental and physical work.  This is known as the gaining of greater “Energy” or “Chi”.

The above six focuses, (Clarity, Right Intent/Right Action, Vibration, Expansion, Right Alignment and Energy) are an ideal combination of Intentions.  They greatly aid in the expansion of consciousness.  When used one at a time they have potency, but when used in tandem they are unstoppably progressive, in terms of spiritual advancement.  They may be employed by individual persons successfully, or by groups of meditators/prayer circles for particularly potent, spiritual results.

The entire body is a matrix of Intent, Awareness and Energy.  This matrix corresponds and interacts with the matrix of Intent, Awareness and Energy in the environment, (surrounding psychic fields/unified field).  Therefore the inner, (personal) and outer, (environmental) states of consciousness have a direct relationship with each other, of cause and effect.  When we increase our state of love within for instance, (raise our Vibration) love starts to be reflected back from the environment in which we live. When we increase our level of Energy at will, the environment tends to feed us even more vitality.  As Clarity is improved, so too do our relations become more clarified and lucid.  When Right Alignment or greater connection with God/Nature is established, the manifestations of the Divine begin appearing in daily life.  When we Expand all of these Intentions/states of consciousness to others, (and the world in general) they become increasing manifest there, and return to us a hundred-fold.  By “broadcasting” progressive, spiritual Intentions individually and in groups, we cause an effect of great benefit for humanity.  This may also be referred to as “improving ones’ karma”, by manifesting direct psychic effects in the world.  Through the use of our Intent, we can bring about great changes in the collective consciousness of humanity, as well as within our own being.

It is thus very useful to cultivate or Intend all of these six elements of consciousness expansion, and throughout the physical body.  Each specific part of the human body corresponds, and is connected with, that same part of the body in all other people.  This fact is a result of the natural law of resonance.  This is made evident by an awareness of the chakras, and how they react to the Intentions of others. The feelings and Intentions in our bodies reflect those of the world to a large degree, and vice versa.  All of these daily, moment to moment phenomena which we all constantly experience,  are made possible through the unified field and other natural laws.  Love, (higher vibration) should therefore be increased within every cell and tissue, as should greater clarity and energy. Divine/soulic connection, (right alignment) and spiritual good will, (right intent/action) can be intentionally increased within as well, in the full knowledge that it is our spiritual responsibility to do so, for our own sake and the sake of our planet. It is similarly useful to Intentionally expand, (project) all of these aspects/Intentions outward to all people, and the Earth in general.  To do so is to improve ones’ health, karma, state of being and effectiveness in every area of life.  Through the instrumentality of Intent and the Transceiver that is the physical body, a new world may literally be “Intended into place” this very day.  When we combine together our mutual Intentions in this regard, there is literally no limit to what we can spiritually and socially accomplish.
