How do we interpret the different lenses for the interpretation of relationships? Exploring the theories of cosmology, whether reading or listening to those much more educated than I in them, has also given me ways to compare and contrast what I’ve experienced in relation to them. As an evolving civilization, the need to continue the exploration of our relationships is imperative.
I know there are more things under heaven than our minds can imagine still, yet this at least gets us on the same page, or at least a similar one. I was gradually made aware of the need to consider a holistic view after so many varied contact modality experiences throughout my life, there has to be a holistic view of reality that indeed address the relationships of consciousness, our cosmology and contact with non-human intelligence.
My premise was that if we are ONE, then how does that appear to our senses? Each aspect or expression [intelligence] of the contact modalities was a completely subjective experience, even though I was able to be aware enough in them to ask questions about them. In each there was a component of my consciousness that was ‘present’ as a participant and yet I was also able to observe and report (even if only in my own mind).
Dr. Mishlove commented that he was impressed with my ability to observe and report on the subjective experiences, which added a dynamic to my writing that many experiencers seem to lack. We are challenged to move beyond the emotion of the experience and question it as an outside observer with an existing knowledge base. The real opportunities come, in my opinion, when we suspend our belief systems and knowledge base to ask questions the take us into new territory.
In a moment of contemplation regarding writing this chapter and being able to offer something unique, my mind found its way to reflecting on a few authors from the late 19th and early 20th century. Perhaps the reflection isn’t unique, but the interpolation was.
Interpretation of Relationships
There are several that come to mind immediately, all having an impact on the lenses I developed. Helena Blavatsky described Theosophy as “the synthesis of science, religion and philosophy”, proclaiming that it was reviving an “Ancient Wisdom” which underlay all the world’s religions.
In the 1920s Guy Ballard wrote of Ascended Masters and an ‘I Am Presence’ that unified human consciousness with a higher realm of oneness accessible through his training with one known as Saint Germain. They first met on the side of Mount Shasta, a common place for CE-5 activity today (contacting extraterrestrials, weird, eh?). I think many of the great experiencers and thinkers had some form of contact, perhaps just unrecognizable as such.
Alice Bailey’s vision of a unified society included a global “spirit of religion” different from traditional religious forms and including the concept of the Age of Aquarius. Baird Spalding wrote of his discoveries on a scientific expedition to Southeast Asia in Life and Teachings of the Masters of the Far East. During that same time period, the Urantia Book was being recorded, but wasn’t published until 1955.
These early authors who explored the unknown with some voracity, yet only addressed semi-terrestrial circumstances and their interpretation of relationships. It wasn’t until much later that the UFO phenomenon was introduced in the mid-1940s. Now, if you were able to grok (from Heinlein’s Stranger in a Strange Land) all that, I’ll elaborate more of what I think may be possible in answering the final question. I’ll attempt to supply an adhoc unifying theory of everything that may hold some advantages and perhaps correlative factors for the reader.
The preceding was an excerpt from ZERO to ONE – Making Our Way Toward a Conscious Civilization. I’ll share a bit more in the next post.
