WHEN mother welcomed us back in the house after a long day outside at play, we knew there was caring and love waiting for us.
There would be a warm meal, a soothing bath, a bedtime story. Clean pajamas and sheets were as much mother’s rule as her unconditional love.
There is a perfect analogy “between the processes of Nature, in the Kosmos, and in the individual man,” according to The Secret Doctrine (1:173.) We learn that analogy “is the surest guide to the comprehension of the Occult teachings.”
We are protected by a natural healing force in our bodies, the ever watchful immune system, surely a proof of a natural built-in ‘mother effect.’ There must be hundreds of examples of this built-in restorative force at work.
Cuts and scrapes are healed, harmful microbes are stopped in their tracks, and every day worn out parts all over the body are repaired with fresh new cells. Nature knows how to care for her children, if only we obeyed her few basic rules, and didn’t derail the natural order.
But in these hectic and distracting times find many of us straying from nature’s tried and true ways. With increasing financial and psychological pressures on parents, children’s natural lives can be less than ideal. Maybe some parents have stopped paying attention.
This is shown by an upwelling of separation anxiety in our children, a serious state leading to numerous mental, emotional and physical disorders.
But there are proven ways to recover from the effects of a missing or hurtful parent as will be seen and heard later in this blog in a ground-breaking talk by Clancy D. McKenzie, M.D describing these problems, and revealing an unexpected solution.
A Mother’s Love
“Mothers are the most important people in the world, especially on Mother’s Day,” says singer Amy Sky, “so this year I’d like to share with you ‘A Mothers Love,’ a song from my new CD Alive & Awake. Give it to your mother along with my own personal wish that this Mother’s Day will be the best one she’s ever had.”
Dr. McKenzie’s presentation, “Babies Need Mothers”, was given at the 2011 Annual International Theosophical Conference. Many of Dr. McKenzie’s most powerful insights were actually directed to him during his dreams, and experienced later as voices on awakening, and during the day at unexpected moments.
Is it because we forget that nature and humanity are really One Being, that we lose our way?
The solution hit him like a bolt of lightening he says, and without so much as a hand-held calculator, McKenzie “unearthed the origin and mechanism of serious mental and emotional disorders.”
Babies Need Mothers
“You do not have to be a yogi and meditate for years in a cave to receive an enlightened answer,” says Dr. McKenzie. “When you fall asleep you reach just as deep a level of consciousness. All you must do is take one minute at bedtime to formulate your question, and one minute when you awaken to retrieve the answer. Practically anyone can do this the very first night.”
Dr. McKenzie has not known “anyone to receive a wrong answer or one that is morally corrupt.” He concludes from this that “the answers are coming from a higher source, and that the programmed dream might be similar to prayer – but with a refined technique for receiving the answer.”
His proscribed treatment and three levels of prevention quickly followed. After forty plus years of research and studies, the author has made the results and prevention methods available to the general public for the first time.
His new book “Babies Need Mothers” – How Mothers Can Prevent Mental Illness in their Children, can be purchased on his website, or from Amazon.
In these often dark times of the soul, its easy to overlook the plight of our fellow humans, assuming someone else will help. Luckily there are many ordinary persons just like us who are determined to live unselfishly and harmlessly, somehow finding time to serve the needy and down-trodden.
Disease, poverty, hunger and the rise of environmental blights are, it seems, the inevitable result of our separation from the natural, unified state. The opening proposition of The Secret Doctrine reminds us of the most important Theosophical idea: the “fundamental One Existence, or Absolute Being, must be the REALITY in every form there is.”
“Existence is ONE THING, not any collection of things linked together. Fundamentally there is ONE BEING.”
What connects us and the whole of nature together? In Occult mythology she is called “‘The Mother of the Gods,'” says Blavatsky — “Deva-Matri — it is from her Cosmic matrix that all the heavenly bodies of our system were born — Sun and Planets.” In Occult Science it is called “one homogeneous divine Substance-Principle” (Secret Doctrine 1:273), the one radical cause.”
The root of ‘Mother’ is corroborated, writes H. P. Blavatsky, Secret Doctrine 1:91): “by the significant fact that Anna (the name of the Mother of the Virgin Mary), now represented by the Roman Catholic church as having given birth to her daughter in an immaculate way (‘Mary conceived without sin’), is derived from the Chaldean Ana, heaven, or Astral Light, Anima Mundi —
“… Anaitia, Devi-durga, the wife of Siva, is also called Annapurna, and Kanya, the Virgin ‘Uma-Kanya’ being her esoteric name, and meaning the ‘Virgin of light,’ Astral Light in one of its multitudinous aspects.”
This unifying Cause is the Hindu Akasha, also called the “mother substance,” which is the “real substance of the concealed (Sun)” according to a secret commentary [SD 1:290, (xxi.)]:-
“It is the heart and the matrix of all the living and existing Forces in our solar universe.”
In her groundbreaking masterpiece, The Field, investigative journalist Lynne McTaggart presents a compelling and stunning argument for unity. “It’s a concept that eliminates one of the biggest problems we have in the world,” she says, “which stems from the erroneous idea that we’re all separate.”
With a change of heart and direction, becoming “one with Nature’s Soul-Thought,” is becoming scarce today with the pressures of unemployment and financial losses. Yes we might receive a lot more TLC from the Great Mother than we do now, if we only followed Her Rules.
Humanity, starting with the children, needs to embrace the morals and values of the science of wholeness.
Only the spiritual knowledge possessed by the Sages of the past, can lead us to the healing we need in the present.
“When, moved by the law of Evolution, the Lords of Wisdom infused into him [the human form] the spark of consciousness,” H. P. Blavatsky wrote in The Secret Doctrine (1:210):
“the first feeling it awoke to life and activity was a sense of solidarity, of oneness with his spiritual creators. …
“Devotion arose out of that feeling, and became the first and foremost motor in his nature; for it is the only one which is natural in our heart, which is innate in us.”
“Before the soul can comprehend and may remember, she must unto the Silent Speaker be united,” says The Voice of the Silence, “just as the form to which the clay is modeled, is first united with the potter’s mind. For then the soul will hear, and will remember.”
A joyful lesson in exuberant teamwork from the inspired songwriter Barry Manilow, coaching his young pupils.
As We Think
“The thought manifests as the word;
The word manifests as the deed;
The deed develops into habit;
And habit hardens into character.
So watch the thought and its ways with care,
And let it spring from love
Born out of concern for all beings.”
“As the shadow follows the body,
as we think, so we become…”
~ Buddha – “The Dhammapada“
“She is very properly called ‘The Mother of the Gods,'” says Blavatsky — “Deva-Matri — it is from her Cosmic matrix that all the heavenly bodies of our system were born — Sun and Planets.” (The Secret Doctrine 1:99)
