Logos Lux- Part I

People often talk about Spirit and Spirit Energy, but few actually know what it is. According to The Kybalion, Spirit is "Unknowable, Unmovable, All-Pervading- having existed always and will always exist." It is the Underlying Essence, the Primum Mobile, the Great White light. According to the Qabalah, Spirit is the highest Element, the synthesis of all the Elements. Alchemically, it has been called the Quintessence, and even alluded to as the Mercury Element because of its Mercurial, fluidic nature. Truth is, Spirit is the animating principle of everything that exists.
Matter is real to us humans insofar as we are in this physical body and are able to live and move our being on planet Earth. But matter is, according to Quantum Physics not real, something the Ancients always have known. It is Maya, an illusion. If you look at a molecule with a microscope and you break it down, matter is in reality just empty space with electrons and neutrons orbiting around each other. But at its core it is empty space. An un-reality. Nevertheless,there must be an underlying reality, overlaid with this illusion of matter. So if matter is not real, then what is real?
What is real is Spirit. Spirit is in everything. It is the mortar which creates everything in existence. And as we are also Spirit; we have a Spiritual counterpart. It is our duty as human beings to get in touch with it. This is called in Christian terms, the Resurrection, or Rebirth. Metaphorically speaking, being born again, into Spirit. It is the raising of consciousness above physical matter into Spiritual reality that underlies all things.
In the Qabalah, Spirit is Kether, the Crown, the White Light and the highest state of consciousness attainable by human beings. In reality we can never know the Great White light directly. To do so, the physical body would have to die. This is why those who have near death experiences report seeing the White Light. We know it and of it through the next two spheres of the Tree of Life, Chokmah and Binah, Wisdom and Understanding. In the Christian pantheon, it is the Trinity. Kether is the Father, Chokmah is the Son and Binah is the Holy Ghost. These three are Eternal, that part of us which was never born and will never die.
We have an ability to perceive reality through Intuition, by using what is called the Mind's Eye. This is the 6th Chakra, the one below the Crown Chakra, which filters the White Light or Spirit. Some of us are in tune with the Mind's Eye and some are so conditioned by matter as perceived by the senses and by the Ego that their Mind's Eye has calcified and closed up. They don’t perceive reality through intuition, but only through the intellect.
The intellect is the by-product of the Mind and its main operator is the Ego. The Ego lives in the Water Element, which comprises 93% of our physical bodies, as we are mainly made up of water. Now, in order to raise consciousness above the physical body and the Ego, we must apply heat and the Fire Element to burn away the dross and negative karma stored in the Waters of the body, in our memories. The Ego feeds off fear stored in the karma of our memories, through fear of the past. It is formed and lives with us, trying to convince us that we are it. One way to apply heat to old memories in order to purge them is by raising the Kundalini Energy.
What is the Kundalini? Kundalini is the latent energy in man which resides at the base of the spine and which is said to be coiled three times. Raising this energy happens through the use of spiritual practices, by meditation, a traumatic life experience, or even through the use of recreational drugs. The energy rises through the spinal column and into the brain. Once raised to the top of the head, it triggers an awakening of the Spiritual Body counterpart, whose purpose is to attune us to the subtle world of the Spirit. This is the Body of Light.
This Spiritual Awakening, the highest Degree of Enlightenment, occurs after many, many years of purging and transforming. Enlightenment basically means to be In-Light, therefore it is akin to the Resurrection of the physical body into the Spirit, as the Spirit is Light. The two words mean the same thing. Enlightenment is the state of achievement while Resurrection is the process of attainment to this goal.
Kundalini triggers the awakening of the Spiritual body which, according to the Hindus, awakens the 72,000 nadis. Once this occurs, the awakened human becomes like a tree, with feet rooted in Mother Earth. Awakened ones receive vibrations from invisible worlds that are attuned to the World Aeon, the Aura of the Earth. These awakened nadis serve as receptors while the air around us serves as a medium of transmission of energy signals related to thoughts and feelings. This is the source of Telepathy, which is the direct knowledge of another's thoughts, and Empathy, which is the direct knowledge of other people's feelings.
Air is also linked to Spirit and in some Spiritual practices it is considered as the Spirit. But Qabalistically, Air is an Element, and therefore a part of Spirit, but not Spirit itself. But since Air moves both Water and Fire Elements in the physical realm of matter, the same property is given to it through the Alchemical Elements. "As Above, So Below." What takes place in the Microcosm, also takes place in the Macrocosm. And vice versa.
Air is Thought, while Water is Emotion, and Fire is Willpower. Thought moves both Willpower and Emotion, hence Air is said to be suspended between Fire and Water, which represent Life. Visually, it is the Hexagram or the Star of David, a Jewish symbol relating to Life itself. Within the Earth's atmosphere, Air is all around us; all life needs air in order to survive. Without air we cannot breathe and without breath there is no life. Simple as that. Air is Life.
Once an individual's Spiritual body and the 72,000 nadis are awakened, consciousness is able to receive and perceive vibrations and the person is termed "psychic" to a greater or lesser extent. Being Psychic is the ability to perceive worlds beyond the physical by using "psychism," the psyche, or the Mind. Hence it is an internal process of receiving. The awakened nadis are the antennae while air is the medium of transmission of vibrations. This is why people say that a Kundalini awakening, the raising of consciousness, and awakening of the Spiritual body, catapults the person into the world of Energy and Vibration. The Ancients called this the 4th Dimension.
Energy is an invisible substance that we talk about all the time. Upon closer inspection, we will see that Energy and Spirit are oftentimes interchangeable terms. Spirit is therefore Energy, and it can be measured and quantified due to its vibrational frequency. But there are varying degrees of Energy — Spirit being just one of them — that vibrate at the highest frequency. Once you start lowering vibration, you are able to tune into different vibratory fields between Spirit and Matter. Matter is said to vibrate at such a low frequency it is practically at rest. While Spirit vibrates at such a high frequency it is invisible. But both occupy the same Space at the same Time. Raising the Kundalini enables you to experience this Other World that is normally imperceptible by the senses.
It is our duty as human beings to raise consciousness to the level of Spirit, thereby raising our own vibrations. Vibrations affect everything, and if we raise our own vibrations we immediately affect everything and everyone that comes into contact with us. Vibrations work through induction. Hence they emanate and jump from one person to another, affecting everything from living things to inanimate objects. Quantum Physics now corroborates this process, knowledge the Ancients discovered thousands of years ago. We cannot look at anything or give anything attention, without changing it in the process.
So, what is consciousness? As human beings we are "consciousness," able to perceive the world around us through the five senses, and through the 6th sense of intuition, the Mind's Eye. Consciousness is everything around us, it is Spirit. You need the vehicle of consciousness in order to perceive and experience the world. Consciousness for humans works through Attention of Willpower.
That which we give attention to is where our consciousness is. If we give our thoughts attention, then we are in our own heads, in our minds and our consciousness is turned inwards. We are basically living out only what we think. If our attention is inwards, then we are in the Ego. If it is outwards, we are resonating with Spirit. If we focus our attention outwards into the physical world, we connect our consciousness with all living and non-living things and by uniting our consciousness with what is outside of us, we become One with the thing we are looking at. By becoming One with it, we stop living in the duality of Mind, and attune to the Moment, the Now. Since Past and Future only exist in the Mind as a form of duality. The Spirit lives in Singularity; while the Ego in Duality.
The Now is a rapturous Moment. In the Now, human beings feel a phenomenal emotionality. And since we love to feel good, we strive to be in the Now. We do so through the creative arts, by meditating, or through acts which make us literally lose ourselves. The creative process excites our imagination, which puts us in touch with the Now. This is why an artist, poet, or musician gets so enraptured with creating that they lose track of time and exist only in the Now. Another way is through meditation — either focusing on something, an object or thought and holding it, or by working to silence the mind. Both processes put the person in touch with the Now.
In reality, all life is a form of meditation, since we are constantly thinking about something. Even focusing to not think is thinking about not thinking, hence it is a form of thought. Thought is at the core of everything in the Universe — at least, as far as our Milky Way Galaxy is concerned. Talking about different Galaxies and the feasibility of existence there is to talk without factual knowledge. So when talking about the Universe, let it be understood we are only talking about our Milky Way Galaxy and our own Solar System.
