From the Archives: The Withering of Finer Ancient Senses
An excerpt from Tim's brilliant chapter, "The Pastime of Reincarnation" from The Risen. To read the entire chapter, go here.
“Because of the withering of such finer ancient senses, the reigning earthly cultural view disables any abilities to perceive the underlying realities, thus rendering them invisible to the mind. Now, in your time, Nature itself is being disabled and destroyed by humankind, which means that humankind is destroying itself. When you attempt to destroy Nature you are literally destroying your hearth. Destructive thinking leads to manifested violence. Humankind is an inextricable part of Nature because, like the baby trees, their spirits arise out of the same spirit of Greater Nature. Humankind is now increasingly dismantling its own hearth, which contains the collective memories of countless individual homes. Decreased access to the collective underconscious leaves a feeling of emptiness and longing, and so people are filled with increasing urges escalated by their ego-minds to fill that emptiness—even with stories that aren’t completely true or which have yet to be realized. These urges demand instant satisfaction regardless of the damages incurred, while neglecting the health of the overall collective and causing severe imbalances within the greater system."
“I give you an image here of your blue planet swimming in the Cosmic Ocean of Ceaseless Voyaging. Its never-ending development continually advances it as a new species in every unit of space-time. Although Earth appears finite, it is, in countless and generally unknown ways, infinite and nonpredictable in its own evolution. This is because it is a living, organic being itself. Although it has long been studied by earth-born Risen, our terrestrial home is still a great creature of greater mysteries. Citing the repetitive tendencies of human histories, some see Earthkind’s present destructive actions as signs of evolution and an element of the process of earth’s unfolding nature, where growth appears as an occurrence from a four-dimensional perspective, like the movement of a pendulum swinging to and fro, further and wider. They wonder what the limits of this pendulum are and if it is reaching the state of its final limitations—many believe that it has. From multidimensional perspectives that are beyond the usual four—within most of humankind’s ken—there are yet other models. The spiral is one that well-describes the Risen perspective, a model that is greatly downsized and a relatively static example of higher dimensions.”
