One of the new, but simple insights from the Russians Grigori Grabovoi and Arcady Petrov that I appreciate is that each human being is created one time, perfectly. In other words, the Creator did not and does not “err” in the conception, design, or execution of the Original Intention. This idea feels much better to me than the story that influenced my childhood home growing up in Chicago; a life that was sprinkled with a bit of early Catholic schooling, and heavy doses of Southern Baptist church-going.
If you listen to some purveyors of religious truths, each human is born in “sin.” This suggests a stigma, flaw, or defect. If you take these ideas seriously (and who doesn’t?), they become encumbrances to the mind and heart. There are many such “truths.” Greek mythology gave us the “Achilles heel.” Ancient literature proffered that every “hero” had a tragic flaw. There appeared to be no getting around the idea that we are damaged goods, fighting an uphill battle to become worthy in the “eyes of the Lord,” or any authority surrogate.
How many of us spend an entire life, or lifetimes going through that sorry loop? Could it be that some of the “truths” that have long been the foundation of our belief systems, are actually false?
Being a “sinner” certainly never rang true to me. Even when the majority of the people around me who shared the belief in “sin” said it was so, it didn’t feel that way to me. How did the religious belief become “the law” of some lands? Someone… a group of human beings wrote it down, including some information and leaving out other, and declared it was from God. This was supposed to be a powerful, all-knowing God of Love that never errs (in spite of creating our sorry asses).
The same scribes who set down and codified these religious principles created a separation; a barrier between God and His creation. $cience, which has become today’s religious authority, maintains the separation. Humanity’s natural connection with Nature and God garners little appreciation. Nature is to be conquered and God to be worshiped (along with money), while “man” is to be respected under certain conditions, or with well-defined “strings,” else be feared.
The predominant religious concepts of today, Christianity, Catholicism, Islam and Judaism, all have a God element but none of them acknowledge a kinship or oneness of humanity and the Source. Kinship is conditioned only if certain beliefs are surrendered to. Under such circumstances, relationship takes the form of worship or Judgment, but not partnership and certainly not relatedness.
According to some, Jesus was “God’s only son.” If that was true, what did that make the rest of us?
According to Islam, God is a “unique, indivisible being who is independent of the entire creation.” This is another reason to suggest revering the Creator, but reviling the creation (non-believers in particular). Yet, millions of people accept and live by these “rules.” Wars are fought in the name of them. Pestilence and plague appear to be God’s disfavor with the infidels, heathens, or other disaffected group of dis-believers, when in fact, it is the natural outcome, expressed in planetary dynamics, of our collective ignorance of self, and disconnection with each other.
So it was a breath of fresh air to hear someone assert that the Creator, God, created each human being perfectly, with love. I had no problem accepting this statement as true. Given the astounding things that have been attributed to Grabovoi and Petrov – amazing healings from severe diseases without medicine, regeneration of organs long removed, altering the outcome of certain events after the fact, even resurrection of people who had departed this stage of experience – my inclination was to know more, because it rang “true” to me.
Having now read over 2,000 pages of translated material from these two, the truth runs deeper.
I mention Grabovoi and Petrov not because they are special any more than Jesus or Muhammad was. They are simply the people through whom information that can change the world in their respective eras, was given. It would be unwise and inappropriate to put them on a pedestal. The world changers are US, whether or not we know who we are. If we know who we are, the world that we create will truly wonderful for all, not apparently wonderful for a few.
History is rife with individuals who raised the bar of awareness for humanity, but paid what appeared to be a high price from a thankless or threatened human society. Their bodies were killed off, yet their ideas took over anyway. What does that tell you?
“Father forgive them for they know not what they do.”
Jesus is said to have uttered these words from the cross at Calvary before being put to death… or so they thought. He knew something that the Romans, and humanity at the time, did not now.
“Death” is a fiction.
You can “overcome” death because it’s not real. Actually, it is just a shift in reality, the effect of a change in where our attention and energy is focused.
“Nothing real can be threatened. Nothing unreal exists. Herein lies the peace of God.” – from A Course in Miracles.
We’re been seeing evidence of these truths throughout human history, but have yet to become adept at connecting the dots. Yet if one is so inclined, the dots are there to be connected.
I am now reading the work of Robert A. Monroe (1915-1995) whose books, Journeys Out of the Body, Far Journeys, and Ultimate Journey, take us into the most important, meaningful, and rewarding area of exploration. That is, the journey to self-understanding.
Starting in 1958, Monroe began experiencing a strange, and at first, frightening phenomenon wherein he would find himself “awake” but either not “in” his body (next to it or floating somewhere nearby in the room), or “in” it, but temporarily unable “operate” it. (He later learned that the house in which he lived had a natural pyramid-shaped roof over his sleeping area, although his wife didn’t appear to journey with him.)
After numerous visits to doctors, psychologists and psychiatrists who convinced him that he was healthy, he elected to simply “go with” the experience and see where it took him. He eventually coined the term “out-of-body-experience” (OOBE).
Being highly analytical in his own right, Monroe elected to document his experiences, which became the basis of his books, and eventually, the Monroe Institute, located in Faber, VA.
He created an interesting framework of concepts around his discoveries and travels, which include various realities to familiar and unfamiliar places, encounters with humanoid and non-humanoid intelligences and entities, and an entire Order of Realities, with their own laws and permissions, all waiting for our readiness. The determining factor appears to be each one of us, as we understand, and thereby liberate, self; not a physical, but a non-physical aspect.
What does this have to do with the Norm of the Creator? Everything. We think of ourselves as a physical body. We sometimes say that we’re more than our body, but then there’s still the perception that it is part of us. The fiction of death, and our associated beliefs, is all about our perception of the body. However, it is not real. We are a pattern of energy that is not “physical” as we currently think of the term.
Monroe developed a method of being “awake” in one’s energy body, which I suggest is comprised, in part, of plasma, while the physical body slept. He maintained a connection to the physical body through an infinitely extendable “umbilical cord”. That connection persists as long as there is a desire or need to use the body. When the connection is withdrawn, the physical body is transformed back into component earthly matter.
In one of his experiments out of the body, he stood in the center of the room, which looked just as it did when the body was “awake.” While standing still, he looked at the wall, extending his arms toward it while imagining touching it with his hand. Without taking a step, his arms simply and naturally extended until he touched the wall, which he could feel in the same way as if he were in body. If we have that level of elasticity, I’d imagine we’d have no problem taking whatever form we desire at any given moment.
Understanding the nature of what we might call our “exo-physical” body, and the realities that can become apparent is the actual launching pad to the Cosmos that awaits us all.
With all this said above, the interview below between Lisa Harrison and Dannion Brinkley adds more perspective.
