Manifesting World Enlightenment: part 4

Part 4 of 5
There can be no doubt that the world situation today is grave. It is becoming increasingly apparent that the institutions, governments, and traditional methods of society, have little effectiveness in solving a collective crisis of global proportions. In this respect even wholesale environmental destruction or international war, is not the true essence of the modern crisis. Political parties and social policies are not in themselves at the root of human suffering. Wars and corruption are not at ultimate fault in the failure of world peace agendas. All of these conditions of the modern age are but symptoms of a central problem, one that is far beyond the reach of presidents and governments to remedy. Our worldwide social obstacle to fulfillment as a species, comes from the central root of wrongly focused consciousness. Therefore, the modern condition stems not from procedural inadequacy, but from a deep spiritual deficit.
Thousands of years ago we began to collectively assume that the purpose
of life was the accumulation of material possessions beyond need.
Materialism arose through artificial thinking, and we began to fear
truth and our true nature, as spiritual beings. As we turned away from
our spiritual selves, we also began to de-value nature and even that
which is called God, as a spiritual resource. In doing this, we began
believing that only what is immediately perceived by the senses has any
value in life. It is this spiritual deficit which drains the energy
away from all efforts at world peace. It is materialism which robs our
natural joy of its sparkle, making fear the materialists’ ever-present
shadow. To reverse the trends of the modern condition, it is our
responsibility to turn away from materialism and the society which
embraces it, to again realize the central purpose of life and living.
This central purpose is the expansion of consciousness. Consciousness
has always driven the course of evolution forward, and even now it is
the central foundation for every reading eye, every breath, and every
act we perform. To expand consciousness is therefore to fundamentally
change and improve our every act in life, and also to intentionally
evolve ourselves and our planet as conscious beings.
There can be no political solutions. The systems and laws created by
humanity are not the essence of reality, and cannot be the source for
our renewed progress in peace and spiritual prosperity. We cannot
realistically expect to find peace and fulfillment within the folly
generated by politics or modern governments of any kind. The reason for
this is clear. There is yet a much higher order than that which has been
invented by courts, popes and presidents. This higher order is known as
Nature, and its edicts are those of Natural Law. In applying ourselves
to this higher order completely, and without allowing interference from
the inferior laws of human-kind, we are then freed to ascend and evolve
at will. But to accomplish this significantly greater degree of
enlightenment, the willingness to both reject society, and disregard its
petty considerations as irrelevant, is extremely useful. Modern beliefs
in the Dollar as God for instance, simply must be dethroned, and so must
the governments and corporations who peddle such religious notions. To
reject materialism is therefore necessary to significantly progress on
the path of spiritual realization. This act becomes a matter of
lifestyle, and not just intellectualism. In so doing we find that our
only true need is to satisfy the intentions of both our own souls and
The road to greater self realization is endless, and there is no such
thing as ultimate enlightenment, only higher and ever higher levels of
spiritual embodiment. One of the main obstacles to progress on this
road, is belief in that which is not in accord with natural law. In
other words, belief in the false, is as sure a deterrent to real
progress, as is apathy and ignorance. To expand our consciousness then,
it is of paramount importance to re-evaluate all the suppositions which
make up the modern world. In so doing we find that society has been
permeated by the lies of centuries. These falsehoods are a block to not
only personal enlightenment, but world peace. The more false beliefs
are removed from the mind, the more consciousness will tend to naturally
expand. Likewise, the more consciousness expands, the more we tend to
challenge the status quo in the most fundamental manner, because clarity
and love allow insights into what is normally accepted as
Those who have already challenged the falsehoods of our day, have
emerged victorious in their defeat of personal illusion, to a great
extent. It is they who are ready to cooperate in the spirit of good
will, for the further growth of not only themselves, but the entire
planet as well. In some practitioners the realization of what is
naturally true and therefore worthy of life focus, (and what is not) has
grown to a great extent. At this point they are prepared to engage the
power of their consciousness to actually
manifest a new
It is understood at some level by such persons, that intent is a force
of consciousness which is capable of not only transforming the self, but
also the environment in which we live. As we combine this inner force
of Intent together for the sake of mutual upliftment, our spiritual will
begins to reverse the trends of society. In effect it begins to
transform the state of the World Mind, or collective consciousness of
society. Such effects are manifest initially on a psychic level, and
subsequently on the physical level of social relations. Just as love is
made perceptible when lovers enter an otherwise cold room, so too is are
the loving intentions of meditators from around the world, in combined
Through group meditation we are making perceptible and cumulative shifts
in the “world vibration and intent”, (World Mind). In so doing, world
meditations act as a psychic/social purifier, of international fear and
discord. The world crisis can ONLY be effectively addressed at this
level of international and domestic action. Political and social reform
in themselves be successfully implemented by throwing dollars at the
collective symptoms of spiritual disease. Only by addressing the root
of the modern crisis, in the expansion of consciousness, do we have any
real hope of the lasting improvement in the human condition. This is
true because no system or constitution, no matter how noble its original
intention, can afford lasting peace so long as the consciousness of
those who implement it remains lacking. The maintenance of high(er)
levels of consciousness, using a progressive intent on the other hand,
can take any system or document, no matter how corrupt, and turn it into
a productive and satisfying social collective. Let us then turn our
attention away from corrupt political parties, social systems and
governments, to the true source of governance which cannot lead us
astray. Let us return to nature and natural laws, to God and soul for
real nurturance in the application of genuine wisdom. In accomplishing
this we expand the essence which underlies our every act, and which the
soul knows well. This essence is consciousness itself, composed of
energy, awareness and intent, just like everything else in the cosmos.
There are very notably six major focuses,
or intentions, which have consciousness-expanding properties. These six
are described intensively by the Perpetual Raising series as;
Energy, (the progressive gaining thereof).
Vibration, (or love, and the progressive raising thereof).
Clarity, (or awareness of awareness, and the progressive
Expansion, (of the progressive enlargement/manifestation of any
Right Intent/action, (ever increasing spiritual will).
Right alignment, (the deepening of one’s connection to God,
Nature and soul).
These have been described in detail
previously, (see the Perpetual Raising). The reader is invited to
explore how these six intentions, or focuses, combine to greatly expand
ones’ consciousness raising efforts.
For the practitioners’ reference, the
following table demonstrates the effects in combining two or more
elements of consciousness expansion. This table reflects very similar
results at the personal, group and worldwide levels. Cross-reference the
six elements of consciousness expansion below to find their combined
result. Note that clarity combined with clarity, (the first
cross-referenced cell below) simply results in more clarity, and
therefore an “X” is shown. Clarity combined with love, (vibrational
height) results in “Ecstasy, enhanced intelligence, great spiritual
THE COMPLIMENTARY EFFECTS OF THE SIX ELEMENTS OF CONSCIOUSNESS EXPANSION, UPON THE PRACTITIONER, GROUP AND WORLD
Naturally, the graph above only
shows the simple combination of two types of Intentions at a time. For
the advanced meditator who has a disciplined mind, all six of the above
elements can be used simultaneously, or one after another in succession.
In so doing the advanced practitioner can render much greater results
than those shown above. But in the group setting where practitioners
specialize in their Intentions, each participant need only focus upon
one type of Intent at a time, while keeping aligned with other
specialists and their effects. Such specialization amplifies the
group-mind strength of the meditation, to expand the consciousness of
all involved. This accounts for much of the psychic power inherent
when meditators specialize in their Intent, for the good of the group.
Individual practitioners and groups are invited to explore the potentials of the multiple focuses listed above, in the World Raising meditations. This table is only a rough outline of the potentials involved with the multiple use of the six intentions above. Many potential effects other than those listed are very possible. Only experience and experimentation will reveal greater specifics, (and exceptions) which exceed the scope of this present text.
Groups and individuals are invited to try
variations on the meditational themes presented in this article series,
(and that of The Perpetual Raising). Practitioners within
local groups may opt to mutually focus upon only one of the six
consciousness expanding focuses at a time. A group may meet for
instance, for the expressed purpose of gaining mutual clarity, and
projecting this sole quality to each other and the world. Greater love,
energy, right alignment, expansion, and spiritual will, may also be the
sole subject of group or individual focus, for the duration of a given
meditation. The most highly recommended technique however, is the
specialization of Intent within the group, meaning that each individual
member take on one of the six specialized roles above, for the good of
the collective focus. When meditators do this, they employ their
specific focus in both raising themselves and everyone else in the group
AS ONE. Generators for instance, will raise chi not only into
their own bodies but all others present, by visualizing the entire group
as gaining energy, (see Perpetual Raising series). The minimum
recommended number for such specialized groups, (where each of the six
consciousness expanding elements is represented) is seven. This number
includes the six focuses above, as well as the position of Field
Coordinator or Guide, (see the Perpetual Raising series). Additional
participants over the recommended seven, are perfectly acceptable and
desirable, due to the Group Mind principle. In the case
of our Global Group Mind Meditations, such focuses render similar
psychic effects, except at a distance. Remember that consciousness
is not bound by time or space.
Thus far we have discussed the raising of the World Mind of Humanity, particularly in Part 3. The consciousness of the Earth however, (the Earth Mind) may be raised even more readily than that of the World Mind. Interestingly, the individual and group-mind raising of the Earth Mind, results in various psychic effects, which are generally more pleasant for the practitioner. Earth-raising Intentions create feedback that is qualitatively different than that received from most modern human communities, or the World Mind in general.
To focus awareness upon Nature, is to
implicitly align ones’ consciousness with the plants, animals and
minerals which compose it. Most animals and plants do not possess the
same mental capacities as the human being. This fact however, does not
imply that the consciousness (intent, awareness and energy) of plants
and animals, is to be underestimated. Plant and animal life renders
very sophisticated effects upon the fields of consciousness at large,
especially in terms of group mind influence. Their collective
effects are in fact very deep ones, reflecting a natural state of being
which humanity has currently forgotten, (for the most part). A forest
for instance is a local group mind, which is itself a splinter of the
overall Earth Mind, just as a human community is a splinter of the World
Mind. The psychic effects of a forest, (particularly one which has not
been recently disturbed by human interference) is a source for healing
and spiritual regeneration. This is especially true of old growth
The natural states of being found in wild areas have very profound qualities, which we may regain if the Intent to do so is in place. Among these qualities are high, wide-spectrum vibrations, (feelings) high energy levels, a purity of Intent, and expansive, unobstructed clarity. Even Divine connection, (right alignment) is enhanced in nature. For these reasons, the Native peoples of the world have always rightly considered nature to be their very source and temple of God, and worship its forms accordingly.
In acquiring natural states of mind, we are returned to the dignity of a balanced lifestyle, and deep wisdom for right living. The practitioner should take every opportunity to align themselves with Nature and natural areas, so as to regain their many psychic benefits. Alignment with the Earth provides a psychic cleansing of the body/mind. The high vibrational levels of natural areas, and their full spectrum of radiated, (psychic) emanations, balances our state of being. They make us more receptive to the inputs of the soul and the Divine. With knowledge of consciousness we may even access the wisdom of the Earth Mind, as the holder of eons of wisdom, just as Native peoples have always done. The Earth Consciousness maintains those states of right living and evolutionary Intent, which benefits all creatures. Thus it is an indispensable resource for spiritual regeneration, in this current artificial-ized age.
achieve greater mastery of the self and progress as souls in bodies, we
must make full use of our Earth connections, for these are our true
foundation as biological beings. So long as we are in a physical body,
we must attend to the physical realities of existence and spiritual
practice. There is no better way to care for the balance and well being
of the mind and body, than to stay aligned with the Earth Mind. This is
accomplished in large part through natural and practical living. It is
also accomplished by communing with nature, while in meditative states
of consciousness. The same is true for our collective consciousness.
For society to regain its balance and natural wisdom, we must all return
en masse, to the Earth for council and healing. This is an inherent
part of spiritual practice and cannot be neglected.
Raising meditations mentioned previously, (for use in World Mind
improvement) may also be used in the context of Earth Mind benefit.
Basically, the same procedure may be employed in Earth Raising as those
mentioned in Part 3 of this series. Groups of practitioners may meet at
a specific time and place that is appropriate for meditation. In Earth
Mind focus, the place of meditation is ideally a natural area such as a
forest. It should also be one that will be relatively undisturbed.
Holding the meditational setting in a natural area is not a necessity,
but it is a bonus for the achieving and maintaining of higher
consciousness. The felt, psychic emanations of plants and animals act
to relieve the stress of urban living, implicitly performing the
function of psychic protection and spiritual purification. Forests act
as a literal “psychic buffer” from the general stress and fear in
society. This makes them ideal places for meditation and
psychic/spiritual work of all kinds. If it is not possible for the
group to meet in a natural area, then an acceptable alternative will
have to be a communion with nature via the power of thoughtforms. To
employ thoughtforms of this kind even while in the midst of a large
city, one need only hold the visualization of being in a deep forest,
(preferably involving all of the senses of sight, sound, touch, smell
and even taste). By picturing yourself in a forest in this way, you
create a resonant thoughtform-connection with nature, which is the
second best thing to being there yourself. Perform this thoughtform
connection for 3-10 minutes prior to your Earth Raising meditation.
Note the differences
in the following meditation, to the World Mind-raising format, (see Part
1) Employ the usual
procedure for meditational preparation.
2) Meditate together using a pre-agreed meditational form, such as the Chakra Meditation. This step may be shortened according to preference, and the experience level of the group.
Once the desired state of consciousness has been gained,
meditators may then
The group may opt to include the local surroundings they are in, as a part of the mutual, group mind enhancement process. Each meditator may visualize and feel not only the psychic connections between themselves, they may also visualize and feel the connections with surrounding trees, animals, the land in general, etc. In essence, practitioners may include in their group mind, such entities as trees, animals and even surrounding regions.
The group can then to proceed to raise its
mutual level of consciousness through the Intent to do so, (as described
by The Perpetual Raising series). The recommended length
of this step is about 15-30 minutes, as coordinated by the Guide or
other facilitator. Once a group has raised its collective level of
consciousness to a degree that is mutually satisfactory, they may then
proceed to step four.
Step 4 consists of the
employment of a group visualization of the entire natural world.
Visualize our planet as if seen from space. See in the mind’s eye
all the great remaining forested regions, the deserts, oceans, rivers,
plains, the atmosphere, polar ice caps, the molten core beneath the
surface, etc., of the Earth.
maintaining the image of the planet in the mind, see the influence of
the group in the form of a bright light, extending out from the local
region in which it exists, and spreading rapidly over the entire Earth,
(and all of its natural areas).
the group mind state at the same time, while visualizing the expanding
light in step five. Feel love, clarity, energy, right alignment and
spiritual will expand outward from the group, (as
registered by the feeling/Awareness throughout body). It is important
to do this while maintaining the light visualization. Send love,
clarity, greater energy, Divine connection, (right alignment) and
spiritual will to all parts of the planet, including the Earth’s core
and surrounding atmosphere. In sending these out simultaneously, a
group of seven or more meditators can create a very powerful psychic
effect. This effect is of great aid to the Earth Mind. Practitioners
will note that after they send out such intentions for the aid of the
Earth, it will respond by sending a reciprocating wave of consciousness
back to the group on a progressive basis. The higher the states of
consciousness sent into the Earth, the greater will its psychic feedback
become. This is sometimes not the immediate case, when dealing with the
World Mind of humanity. Be prepared for this feedback-reciprocation, it
can give you an enormous spiritual boost!
that the Earth Mind as a conscious
entity, gain the best possible benefit from the projected qualities of
the group. Intend that the effects so projected, render
permanent benefit for the Earth Mind and all of its creatures in
general. In so doing you will gain the support of the Earth Mind, and
achieve very high states of consciousness, (as well as receive profound
insights on many occasions).
