A Tale of Forever

A Tale of Forever

Preface:

Because of our history of differing cultural interactions with angels the world has developed several story lines about them. Who are they, exactly? Where do they come from? What do they do? Are they sent by God, or gods? If so then who or what, exactly, are these? The whole topic is complex with no shortage of legends. I want to write about angels but I do not want to do so in a way that affronts anyone’s beliefs. I channel Bartholomew and have for a long time. This does not mean that what I write is correct. Truths are not absolute. They vary with our circumstance, culture and ability to perceive. On Spiritual Forum are many accounts of angels and other beings. Is one correct while the others are wrong? No. I try to avoid thinking in those terms.

A well known master soul bids us do not believe a thing just because some titled person says it. Do not believe only because ancient tradition seems to persuade or require. Believe a thing only when your personal ability to reason, your individual rational mind, tells you it is the best yet available information. Let’s begin.


Forward:

About angels. Briefly…. They are an evolutionary race which predates that mighty event that we call “the creation”. One could say that “before the beginning”, they were. As the primal force, the Great Creator, began to express the higher spiritual planes came in to existence arranging themselves in a grand and very intelligent design. These were arranged in a hierarchical fashion, the highest of these being the Monadic. This is the plane which “is” the absolute consciousness of the creator as is now defined. Here there are no dimensions as we know them. There is no time. It is the timelessness of god that some call the “I am”. As a result of the process of expression other spiritual landscapes came into being. The first of these was, in our reckoning, the Atmic. This, below and less refined, is a most dynamic plane for here we find the beginnings of divisions of consciousness which result in the differential we observe and call time. Beginning on the Atmic plane the flow of time, which is the product of division, exists.

It is on this plane that our story begins.


Part 1 Concerning Angels

In the last story the travelers were shown the planet of pastels, the home world of Angels. It, in allegory, is their source. Here the newly created take shape and are tutored in what will be their work. He, also the elder may retire to resume their own paths of evolutionary ascension. This, in our reckoning, might be called the Atmic.

But may we return to the nigher, the Monadic, for just a moment? A closer look at the Monadic reveals what to us would seem a single blinding light, pure consciousness. No apparent movement. Stable but with the purpose which would require a dissolution of a fragment of itself. This was the first “Creation”. The primordial “I am”. It was also the advent of the first of those who would develop, those Great Beings who, much later, were known by humanity as angels. Note that references to the flow of time used here are conveniences only. Any comparison of high planes to lower must include these because it is we, in our imperfect states, who seek.

These then were the first (race of) angels. Of the Creator in an almost direct measure their responsibilities included the institution of what we now call evolution, that mechanism which allows all, spirit and physical, to always change and grow. It is they who, through a subordinate race of beings, the worker spirits, cause a single sub atomic particle to adapt to that field of consciousness which is the single, essential, universal principle. In a single statement then the primary duties of the angelic race is the application and moderation of the principle upon and within all which follows. Nothing less.

Note that one may discover, in this seeming complexity, another principle which serves to tie it all together into a single, coherent, whole. Here we refer to the great Law of Correspondences. “As above, so below.” As the story progresses watch for this to become more and more apparent.

The Monadic then was the source of those first beings which would later assume such roles of importance (in the yet to be created lower planes). To provide for them a sphere in which they could wield influence another plane was constructed. Newly created angels needed a world of their own. This, lower than the Monadic and at that time the lowest of any yet envisioned, we might call today the Atmic. This would be the functional home to the angels throughout the long ages which would follow. And, as a reference these would henceforth look to the higher, the Monadic as the heavens of their own aspirations, to which they would someday ascend.

Thus far we see the great creative source, it’s impulse to express and the results of that action. As in any creative process it is Will directed through Visualization to the Matter of some lower plane which results in Form. This simplified statement is the essence of any creative process.

As we read on it is important to know, too, that in the structured universe whether it be spiritual or physical if we think in terms of varying degrees of consciousness we will correctly apprehend the Oneness of it all.

It might be said that angels are God’s “agents of creation”. Before even those realms to which we aspire, they were. They were the managers which would later make their presence known in so many ways.

Now the stage is set so to speak. The Creator has prepared for what would follow.

Our group of travelers is now in the company of the Lady, the First Angel. As they prepare to depart for higher heavens, our story begins.

To be continued.

Part 2 Angels’ Home

In the previous story we found the travelers, guided by and protected within the aura of the lady, the First Angel, racing at speeds far beyond that of light through the reaches of our solar system and out into the distant landscapes, towards the heart of our galaxy. Through this period though we remain in the Astral plane so that we can continue to see the physical universe around us, approaching and receding as we pass. The reader will remember that we passed the constellation of Orion and while there visited the now dead world from which, long, long ago, parties of colonists left journeying to the Earth to begin again on a new world. This world exists yet. It orbits an aging sun, a red dwarf which is too dim now to be seen from Earth without the help of a powerful telescope. This part of the story is literally real. It did happen. It is the reason we on Earth have such an affinity for Orion's belt. But it was long ago and our memories of those times are fading now, replaced by legend.

We may also remember pausing in our earlier journey in the vicinity of the constellation Pleiades where our group was joined by other angels, the Seven Sisters of lore. Quite real after all. Later in our story we will learn more about them. Now in company with the Lady, the First Angel and seven others who are sometimes remembered by their Earthly names assigned by the ancient Greeks, we continue on to the portal through which we will leave the lower heavens and, once again, transit the into the higher worlds, the Buddhic and the Atmic. Shall we continue?

We are bid by the Lady now to compose ourselves for sleep in preparation for the transit. Ahead of us is a point of unusual proportions and coloring. A dark globe like structure of vast size. The blackness of it has a different quality which is unlike anything we’ve ever seen before. We remember that we are in the Astral plane, not the physical. Yet it seems so familiar. It seems to be both very bright and incredibly dark at the same time. Yes. Darkness now as we draw nearer. Our speed, almost un-measurable before, is now increased dramatically. But there is no sense of movement.

Note: This darkness that we detect is an effect caused by extreme concentrations of pure lower spiritual plane energy, in a sense, reflections of the physical.

Now the travelers, in company with and in the protective arms of the great aura, are drawn in… and through. There is no measuring the speeds at which we travel. Indeed is it correct to use that word at all? It is like, in a way, a tunnel. Within as we progress we are continually showered with particles of energy which, as we progress, changes, becomes more refined. These, we are certain, have an effect on our beings. In our minds we hear the Lady explaining that this is the process of conditioning that all must experience before they can enter the… and here she pauses and we sense an idea of a “homeland”. We wonder at this thinking what it might mean. In time we pass what appears to be another boundary. This one is seen, or perhaps, appreciated is a better word, for just a few moments but we continue without hesitating. Later we will ask about that. Not now. The Lady, knowing our thoughts replies “Yes, you will…”. The darkness which we know now to be high levels of energy, lessen and become lighter. We slow now as though we had passed through and are now leaving the vicinity of some grand vortex.

The tunnel effect diminishes. We are at our destination. But it is not any sort of universe that we can recognize. There seem to be irregular shapes, in pastels but nothing of substance, at least of the kind we are used to. Again the Lady intercedes and we begin to understand. We have arrived at the “borderlands” of the Atmic plane of existence. Our rate of progress is now constant and continuing. Our angel guides have changed just a bit. They seem now to be of a slightly different quality. As we seem to slow they become more… “serene” is the word that is given us. They are home.

We have arrived on the great Atmic plane of existence. Here, in these landscapes, we do not move about as before, from place to place. We do not move through any sort of geographical dimensional setting. Instead we travel through “consciousness”. Here one does not so much “see” a thing as she or he “realizes” it. We find later that as we move in a linear sense those things that we perceive are created before us (for our benefit and attuned to our abilities) so that we may comprehend. This being the work of the Angels.

We slow and come to a stop. Before us is a world which seems to be like a planet in pastels. We seem to be seeing it but certainly we can feel it throughout out beings. The angels loosen their formation now. They seem to be smiling among themselves. Then we understand. We are at the home world of the angels. It is here that they begin, here they learn, here they return from time to time for the periodic cleansing that all beings require. Remember the cyclic natures of all? No created being is exempt or held harmless in the midst of that through which they must move in the performance of their duties. It is true, too, with angels. From our more familiar lands of the Earth we do not realize this but it is so. Now we are allowed just a peek into other worlds. It is given to us to expand our consciousness just enough….

The world before, or is it below, us glimmers and changes shapes. Looking closer we see movement. We do not move but we are allowed to send our minds down, down to within the mazes of luminescence. We find that if we slow we are rewarded with visions of structures made of light. And within these are light beings moving about. Several pause and look our way, inquiring… but they continue with their own business. There are columns and domes, sometimes with openings which look like Roman occuli. We are given to know that these serve as “learning centers”…. Here is where young angels receive their educations. Like us, they learn and grow. Lastly we find a body of what appears to be water. The surface shimmers but there are no waves. We seem to know that we are looking at a specialized form of energy. Yes. Something is out of sight to us. It houses or hides a center within which angels are graded and given courses, areas of activity (service areas) in which they will do their future work.”

The stage of our story thus set, resumes.

To be continued.

Part 3 The Pyramid


Our party of travelers has stopped now. Our angel guides will escort us, one of us with each of the seven to the Atmic center which serves as the higher correspondence to the more familiar Hall of Records in the Earth’s Astral plane. Seven travelers, seven angels. The eighth of these, the Lady, now raises her arm before us and points to a structure in the distance. We become aware of it now, not through our eyes or even via our third eyes…. No. It’s different. We are using our imaginations, or rather some higher form of them. What we perceive is being created for us in our minds. Identity is lost to the singularity of this new experience. Forward now, the fifteen move slowly towards this new destination. This writing is a memory which suffers from the need to translate plane to plane until it is within reach of our rational minds. So much is distorted. The reader, each of you, will find slightly differing realities in the tapestry to be unfolded. Colors too will modify in accordance with your own auras’ perceptions. Shall we continue?

We have arrived on the Atmic plane and are upon the mythical home planet of the angels. It is a world in pastels, wonderful. Shapes in light inhabited by beings of light. Only slight variations in coloring. We remember that this is not a physical world at all. Indeed it is unlike any that we can imagine. We are guests, travelers here. The sights that we experience, our understandings of it all are products of the interactions afforded us by our angel guides. It is they who send directly to our human minds (remember we are yet in our Earth plane Astral bodies) those things that we seem to see or hear or understand. Later, after we return home we will, for a time, remember as though we were really there. Were we or because of some need was it yet another dream? Perhaps we will never know. Our perceptions of this place will vary but never let the truth of it’s existence be doubted. It is all quite real.

Before us is what appears to be an immense pyramid made of some shimmering, translucent material. We see it but we can also, to a degree, see into it. As we watch we note very light bands of color moving as though some very mystical play is being enacted, meanings conveyed to some audience. No. It is so much more than just that. It is a four sided pyramid very similar to those found on Earth. We exchange glances.

Our angels, each of them ministers to each of us. Each angel carrying one of us within their protective auras as before. We move forward now and enter. There are no doors or openings that we can see. We simply find ourselves inside. Now all about us are swirling patterns of colored cloud like bands moving as though by directed purpose. Complex but not random at all. We understand just enough to answer our immediate questions. Everyone is inside now. We stop. Yes. It seems to be a strangely layered structure. We have the impression that is not a matter of a building with things inside but rather…. We are seeing or witnessing all the events of the planes of existence arranged in order of something like quality of manifestation. And through it all we know ourselves, our places in this monument. Or so it seems. We will continue. We ask:

“What is this that we see as a pyramid?”

Our angel answers us saying:

“It is our repository of forever.”

We are seated now or rather we seem to be but our bodies do not touch any surface. Perhaps floating is a better word. The Lady, the First Angel, speaks:

“You question the pyramidal design of what you perceive. It is familiar to you. You have seen like structures on Earth and there are hints of others too… The pyramid is a design which, because of it’s inherent stability and simplicity, and versatility serves as foundational to any, to each of the planes of existence.”

We listen and realize that she is correct of course. We have many pyramids on Earth and some say there are others on both our moon and on Mars. She continues:

“This structure is the higher correspondence of the fabled Hall of Records which exists on both your Earth and in her heavens, on the Astral plane of expression. In it’s vaults is a complete history of forever. And, just as the use of this idea provokes wonder in you so shall the discoveries that you will make. Shall we begin?”

The Atmic plane does experience a flow of time but it is almost unrecognizable to us. On lower planes we are used to the very familiar processes of thoughts, thinking. Here this is surpassed by realizations. If we were to describe it we might say it was more akin to variations in consciousness. Perhaps a modulated form of awareness is better. Allow us to simply say that after a time we are led to someplace that seems like, if it were on Earth, to be a reception area. We look about us and we see a regular shaped enclosed space. The ceiling is in the shape of an inverted vee though. And there is one ornament. To one side a covered elongated box. Of this we are told nothing, yet. We discover more about this just before our story concludes. Now the party pauses. We did not see or sense them a moment before but now we see seven passageways around the perimeter of the area. They are not marked that we can discern but plainly they each lead to other areas inside of the pyramid. And now we are moving again.

Each of our guide angels moves to one of the doors. Seven angels, seven doors, seven travelers. It appears that each of us will experience an individual adventure. The Lady, who is still watching says:

“Yes. You are correct. Beyond each of these doors is recorded the various structures of the spiritual realms, both high and lower. Each of you will see and experience the reasoning and mechanics of the forever worlds. Later then you will remember even after returning to the Earth. And a sharing, perhaps in your Healing Room, will be beneficial to you all. But more, as you continue with the rest of your lives you will teach those who show interest affirming the true nature of reality of it all.” We are given to understand that the “forever worlds” are the higher representations or correspondences of the lower, created worlds that we know so well. Shall we proceed?

Note: Angels are known to many all over the world. In each culture or tradition they are recognized by name. May we, for convenience, use the names given the Seven Sisters of the Pleiades by the Greeks?

The seven are: Taygete, Merope, Maia, Electra, Celæno, Asterope and Alcyone. In the company of one traveler each, they move each to a different portal, and enter. At this point the essence of the story begins.

To be continued.
