Body Electric 2

WE are surrounded today by untold numbers and varieties of energy-intensive, man-made machines and gadgets.

We are besieged by these machines all day, they rule our lives in the developed world.

These products range from the hardly necessary to the  indispensable. From TV’s and video games, to cardiac pacemakers, to our beloved cell phones and computers.

The electromagnetic frequencies (EMFs) that spin off from these products, it turns out, are our developed society’s price-to-pay for its monster creation—an all pervasive, insidious, ever-throbbing, artificial world.

Many readers will recall Rachel Carson’s comfort-shattering Exposé, Silent Spring, which documented the world-wide destructive effects of pesticide use, notably DDT.

Her research launched what has now become our well-regulated and accepted organic food industry.

Back to the pulsating sacred Earth: the toxic man-made EMF swimming pool, i.e. wireless cell towers, radar towers, and hundreds of Earth-circling satellites, must be exacting, like agricultural pesticides, a huge price on natural systems. The inevitable effects of this interference could prove unrecoverable.

Clearly, we are flawed space travelers ignorantly abusing an natural system that is no less than Life itself.

The original pristine natural state of the world and the cosmos, is both electro-magnetic and spiritual — we co-exist with our fellow planetary travelers at every level, from cells to stars. So any crippling abuse is of critical concern.

The Psychic Life

ELECTRIC and magnetic affinities are generated, occult teachers say, whenever there is physical touch, the sound of a voice, or even a meaningful look.

Every action we take carries information about us and the life around us, a kind of psychic body language. We also call them ‘vibes’ – and they can be ‘good’ or ‘bad.’

The invisible transfer of information between persons, animals, trees, bacteria and brain neurons, is still largely a mystery. Even birds and bees do it. The general term today is “psi,” coined from parapsychology, and usually refers to telepathy or other forms of extrasensory perception currently unexplained.

Mme. Blavatsky with her Adept Teachers authorized Three  Objects for the Theosophical Society, which included study of  this mysterious phenomena.

The First Object of the Society was “to form the nucleus of a Universal Brotherhood of Humanity,” and the Second “the study of Aryan and other Scriptures, of the World’s religion and sciences etc.,” and these are preserved by almost all Theosophical groups.

The original Third Object was also stated clearly by H. P. Blavatsky in The Key to Theosophy, Section 3, published in 1889, and reads:

“To investigate the hidden mysteries of Nature under every aspect possible, and the psychic and spiritual powers latent in man especially.”

Ξ

Despite the Founder’s unambiguous wording, some Theosophical revisionists have chosen to unilaterally remove both the words “‘psychic” and “spiritual” from the last Object. Others followed suit, and today a timid, unauthorized and watered-down version is all the public sees.  How could this happen with a subject that pervades every major textbook the Teachers wrote, and hundreds of their original articles?

Auguries of God

SCIENCE now realizes that mother nature was ahead of her time in understanding the quantum universe.

A red rose, the dance of honey bees, spiral galaxies, Fritjof Capra’s The Tao of Physics, and Yogi Berra all get it right.

It’s back to the future all over again. Poetry, plants, religions, even materialists and atheists—all have a lot more in common as we’ll see.

Even celebrated artist and poet William Blake sensed he saw “a world in a grain of sand, and heaven in a wild flower,” and how you could

“Hold Infinity in the palm of your hand, and eternity in an hour.”

Children at play—left to their own instincts and intuitions unsmothered by parental intimidation—engage the delights of spontaneous imagination. Theirs is an unselfconscious, non-ideological purity of intent.

Genius of originality in the young child is  hardwired, and when not managed by disapproving, arbitrary rule makers, their creations are joyful and  unpretentious. “The true sign of intelligence,” Albert Einstein once said, “is not knowledge but imagination.”

Mme. Blavatsky’s closest colleague, William Q. Judge, wrote of imagination as “the King faculty,” (Ocean of Theosophy, 139), because “the Will cannot do its work if the Imagination be at all weak or untrained.”

All life forms, like kids at play, are inseparably intertwined — yet consist, as does the radio wave spectrum, of  infinite individual frequencies .

(The Secret Doctrine)

“Would to goodness the men of science exercised their ‘scientific imagination’ a little more,” Blavatsky wrote in her article Kosmic Mind,  “and their dogmatic and cold negations a little less.”

All One Being 3

ELECTRICAL and magnetic signatures are generated, occult teachers say, whenever there is physical touch, the sound of a voice, or even a meaningful look.

Every action we take in fact carries information about us, a kind of psychic body language.

The transfer of information from one person to another without the mediation of any known channel of sensory communication, called telepathy, is the most noticeable effect of this transfer.

Mme. Blavatsky and her Teachers authorized three plainly stated Objects for the Theosophical Society— the Third referred to psychic and spiritual powers.

Despite this fact, revisionists in some major theosophical groups unilaterally removed both the words psychic and spiritual from that original Third Object. Many smaller groups have, unfortunately, timidly followed suit.

Yet, in H. P. Blavatsky’s The Key to Theosophy, Section 3, published in 1889, the original Third Object of the Theosophical Society is stated unambiguously:

“To investigate the hidden mysteries of Nature under every aspect possible, and the psychic and spiritual powers latent in man especially.”

Nature’s Human Magnets 2

WE are surrounded today by untold numbers and varieties of energy-intensive, man-made machines and gadgets.

We are besieged by these machines all day, they rule life in the developed world.

These products range from the hardly necessary to the  indispensable, and all are actively in use. From automatic can openers to cardiac pacemakers, to video games, to our beloved cell phones and computers.

But the electromagnetic frequencies (EMFs) that spin off from them, it turns out, are our developed society’s price-to-pay for its ever-throbbing, artificial world.

Many readers will recall Rachel Carson’s comfort zone shattering expose Silent Spring, which documented the world-wide destructive effects of pesticide use, notably DDT.

Her research launched what has become finally the well regulated and thankfully popular  organic food industry.

Every action we take in fact carries information about us,  a kind of psychic body language.

It is indisputable that Mme. Blavatsky and her Teachers authorized three plainly stated Objects for the Theosophical Society.

Despite this fact, certain unknown revisionists in the T.S. unilaterally had the word “psychic” removed from the original Third Object. Many smaller Theosophical groups, unfortunately, have followed suit.

Pot of Miracles

kara1An old strawberry pot was left near my back door when I moved in years ago. The base of it was actually broken clean from the rest of the pot, but I figured it was worthy enough to plant morning glories in for summer color.

Weeds grew in the little strawberry holes, so I’d yank them out. But one summer, an unusual plant appeared in one of the holes, so I thought:

“It’s worked so hard to get there, I’m going to let it be.”

Winter arrived, consuming all with bitter cold and the little plant withered away.

Come spring, the scraggly plant reappeared! I couldn’t believe it wintered over in that thin pot. A friend told me it was some kind of raspberry.

I had been taking raspberry leaf herb supplements at the time, and had been lamenting its costly expense.

My raspberry plant.

My raspberry plant.

So, here my nature spirit friends brought the needed herb right to my door! I made tea from its leaves.

This year, the plant overwintered again, sprouting up two large branches and bearing fruit!

Elementary, My Dear

Helena Blavatsky was the first to refer to nature spirits as elementals.kirlian8

“Some classes of elementals… have an intelligence of their own and a character…”

And further ….

“A plant can be receptive or non-receptive, though every plant without an exception feels and has a consciousness of its own. But besides the latter, every plant—from the gigantic tree down to the minutest fern or blade of grass—has, Occultism teaches us, an Elemental entity of which it is the outward clothing on this plane.”

kirlian6

William Quan Judge explains.

“As it (the elemental world) is automatic and like a photographic plate, all atoms continually arriving at and departing from the ‘human system’ are constantly assuming the impression conveyed by the acts and thoughts of that person…

“…and therefore, if he sets up a strong current of thought, he attracts elementals in greater numbers, and they all take on one prevailing tendency or color, so that all new arrivals find a homogeneous color or image which they instantly assume.

Your Space

“…every thought combines instantly with one of the elemental forces of nature, becoming to that extent an entity which will endure in accordance with the strength of the thought as it leaves the brain, and all of these are inseparably connected with the being who evolved them.”

KirlianSparks2

“There is no way of escaping; all we can do is to have thoughts of good quality, for the highest of the Masters themselves are not exempt from this law, but they ‘people their current in space‘ with entities powerful for good alone.”  -W. Q. Judge

Quantum Plantics

“On the other hand, a man who has many diversities of thought and meditation is not homogeneous, but, so to say, particolored, and so the elementals may lodge in that part which is different from the rest and go away in like condition. …”

“They move with the velocity of thought. In their world there is no space or time as we understand those terms.”

kirlian

Penn State University scientist Consuelo M. De Moraes and other researchers are finding that plants behave with the diversity of which Judge speaks concerning elementals.

“I think most people regard plants as being pretty unresponsive and stuck in one place,” says ecologist Richard Karban of the University of California, Davis in a recent issue of ScienceNews.

Richard Karban, Ph.D.

In a 2008 paper in Ecology Letters, Karban explores the range of plants’ capacities revealing

“high levels of sophistication previously thought to be within the sole domain of animal behavior.”

But these scientists are also observing plants being as aggressive and mean towards other plants as a lion stalking its prey. Some plants even fight each other for resources and even scream for help.

Hmmmmmm.  Maybe the elementals and plants in my back yard are happy and helpful because they’re appreciated in a friendly environment.

Maybe the other plants are fighting because they don’t like being in a lab? 😉

P.S. New arrival!

Later today, as I was reading your nice comments on the post,this little raccoon came right up to my screen door. In Broad Daylight! I wonder if it was one of the babies I met last summer (see my post “Sweet and Wild.”) Thank you, everyone!
