The Highland Watchtower of Heaven – Processing Prayers

celestrial-cityHigh on the upper boundary of the tenth level of heaven, there exists a colossal tower, with ten sides. Each side processes the prayers and requests of a specific stage; from the lowest level of heaven up to and including the tenth level. A grand central station of thoughts, quandaries, conundrums, and problems which all need a response. The spirit Zabdiel describes the location; the facility is on a plateau. The ground covered in stone, the color of fire; the reflection of the stone permeates the air above to a height of one hundred yards. Next he tells about the building itself: Read More.

Origin of the Species – We (and animals) are Copies of Life in the Spirit World

Our Universe and the Spirit Realm Occupy the same Space – vlog

Our Universe and the Spirit Realm Occupy the same Space. We are immersed in the spirit universe; we just don’t have the capacity to detect it. As our planet become more advanced and when the human race rises in spiritual maturity, we shall be more cognizant of the different dimension surrounding us. Click here to watch my YouTube video.

The Allegory of the Cave – Plato

deathofSocratesI read Plato as a student and truth be told, I didn’t analyze too deeply Plato’s allegory of the cave. Let me refresh your memory (from Wikipedia):

“Plato has Socrates describe a gathering of people who have lived chained to the wall of a cave all of their lives, facing a blank wall. The people watch shadows projected on the wall from things passing in front of a fire behind them, and they begin to give names to these shadows. The shadows are as close as the prisoners get to viewing reality. He then explains how the philosopher is like a prisoner who is freed from the cave and comes to understand that the shadows on the wall do not make up reality at all, for he can perceive the true form of reality rather than the mere shadows seen by the prisoners.” [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Allegory_of_the_Cave]

Here is more detail on the prisoner’s return to the cave after he had seen the outside world:

“Plato continues, saying that the freed prisoner would think that the real world was superior to the world he experienced in the cave; “he would bless himself for the change, and pity [the other prisoners]” and would want to bring his fellow cave dwellers out of the cave and into the sunlight.

The returning prisoner, whose eyes have become acclimated to the light of the sun, would be blind when heSocratesv1 re-enters the cave, just as he was when he was first exposed to the sun. The prisoners, according to Socrates, would infer from the returning man’s blindness that the journey out of the cave had harmed him and that they should not undertake a similar journey. Socrates concludes that the prisoners, if they were able, would therefore reach out and kill anyone who attempted to drag them out of the cave.” [https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Allegory_of_the_Cave]

This allegory is usually interpreted from an epistemological point of view, which is a long word describing how we look at things (belief) from our own base of knowledge.

Plato ended the story with Socrates telling Glaucon (the pupil he was talking to):

“This entire allegory, I said, you may now append, dear Glaucon, to the previous argument; the prison-house is the world of sight, the light of the fire is the sun, and you will not misapprehend me if you PlatosCaveinterpret the journey upwards to be the ascent of the soul into the intellectual world according to my poor belief, which, at your desire, I have expressed whether rightly or wrongly God knows. But, whether true or false, my opinion is that in the world of knowledge the idea of good appears last of all, and is seen only with an effort; and, when seen, is also inferred to be the universal author of all things beautiful and right, parent of light and of the lord of light in this visible world, and the immediate source of reason and truth in the intellectual; and that this is the power upon which he who would act rationally, either in public or private life must have his eye fixed.” [http://webspace.ship.edu/cgboer/platoscave.html]

The Spiritual Intent of the Allegory of the Cave

While I can certainly understand reading the allegory to be one about our limited knowledge and how we process it, I see a more straightforward lesson. That is, we must look beyond what is shown us in this world, by our base senses and the influence of our society and look spiritually above us to moral truths, to Divine truths.

Plato has Socrates tell us directly to” interpret the journey upwards to be the ascent of the soul into the intellectual world”. Which, I propose, is the spirit world, for only in that realm are we allow to fully use our intellect without the presence of numerous physical and emotional distractions. Only by transcending the influence of current society and leaving behind what we are told on a daily basis; what is good for us and what we should desire, can we begin learning what life is like out of the cave. For that is the reason we are on earth; to rise above the fray and become loving and caring individuals, even in the face of immense pressure to conform to what we know isn’t right.

The Prophecy of the Allegory of the Cave

There is a second message in the allegory of the cave and it is prophetic. The philosopher comes into the cave and tries to reveal a new world to the people chained to the wall watching the shadows. Socrates tells us that anyone trying to extricate the prisoners would meet with bodily harm.

Four hundred years later, Christ would attempt to reveal a new world and would be crucified for his effort. Continue on for hundreds, if not thousands of years, people are still dying, or at least being shouted down in their attempt to expose a new method of thinking on a class of people content with their world, as they see it.

The Physical Meaning of the Allegory of the Cave

There is also a third message. Notice how the prisoners only detect two dimensions in their analysis of life. The philosopher escapes and for the first time sees, not only length and width, but also depth. He sees a three-dimensional world.

Our world is three-dimensional. In the book Beyond the Veil, by the Rev. G. Vale Owen, the spirit Astriel tells him the spirit world is at least four-dimensional. Spirits can see length, width, depth and also time. They are able to focus on an object and see the past and the future.

We when leave our prison, we too shall emerge into a rich environment that is beyond our senses in our current body.

I have most probably gone from under-analyzing to over-analyzing the words of Socrates as interpreted by Spirit-101-Front-smallPlato, but I have learned that there are multiple meanings within passages aplenty in messages from the spirit realm. Keep in mind, as told to us by Emmanuel, in the book On the Way to the Light, Socrates was sent by Jesus to enlighten the Greeks. As with Jesus, Socrates too, was killed for his efforts.

Spiritual Degrees of Brightness and the Law of Affinity

angel1Spirits see each other in varying degrees of brightness. The light a spirit detects is the reflection of spirituality and pureness which exists in the heart and body of a spirit. A spirit from the tenth level of heaven, Zabdiel, explains how the level of light within each spirit determines their place in the hierarchy of the spirit realm:

“As we stand on the earth plane, where I stand now, and look through the Veil of difference of condition which is between us and you in the earth life, we often see many people at one time, and sometimes but a few. These people differ in brightness according to the degree of holiness in each; that is, according to the degree in which each individual in himself is able to reflect the divine light of spirit which streams past and through us to you. Some appear very dim, and these, when they come over here, will go the regions dim or less according to their own dimness.”[1]

The process whereby souls are allocated to a certain region is called the Law of Affinity. The Law of Affinity is the great sifter, it is Saint Peter at the gate, determining who goes where. There are no AllanKardec-youngerquestions, no tests, and no debate, you are placed amongst those who are like you.

Allan Kardec, the Codifier of Spiritism, publishes the answer from a collection of spirits about how spirits congregate. He is told, “Union exists between all spirits, but in different degrees, according to the rank they occupy – that is to say, according to the degree of perfection they have acquired; and the greater their perfection, the more united they are.”[2]

GVOwenAllan Kardec, under the direction of the Spirit of Truth, brought the world Spiritism in the 1850’s. More than fifty years later, the Reverend G. Vale Owen communicated with a group of spirits, led by the spirit Zabdiel, the results of the sessions was documented in the book The Highlands of Heaven, which is part of a collection of four books, which are compiled in the book Life Beyond the Veil. The book was published in the 1920’s.

Chico Xavier

Chico Xavier

Next, Francisco (Chico) C. Xavier, starting in the 1930’s began psychographing messages and books from high spirits, all with the purpose of notifying the world about the Doctrine of Spiritism. Consistently, in literature published by Allan Kardec, G. Vale Owen, and Chico Xavier, the Law of Affinity is at the cornerstone of how spirits gather and are organized in the spirit realm.

Like Attracts Like

Zabdiel tells us how the Law of Affinity filters spirits and locates them with their brethren:

“So those whose radiance is great go into those spheres whose brightness agrees with their own; and every one into the sphere which agrees with his – be it less or more. But those whose bodies – spiritual bodies I mean – are of gross texture, and do not radiate much light, but are dim, go into those dim spheres where only they may be so much at ease that they may work out their own salvation. They are not at ease indeed in any sense of the word; but only they would be less at ease in a brighter sphere than in those dim regions until they have grown in brightness themselves.”[3]

After we separate from our physical bodies, we go to where we belong. The brighter travel to one of the levels of Heaven, the dimmer in one of the levels of the Lower Zone, and the darkest in The Abyss, or purgatory as it is known to many.

The degree of brightness that we reflect is determined by our internalizing the Love of God within us.NossaLar-city The more knowledgeable we are about the need to care, be fraternal, and honest with all fellow beings the greater our luminosity. As we grow in allowing love to permeate our entirety, the blemishes that we carry within us, such as envy and selfishness, become less pronounced; and solvable over time.

While those who are tied by material bonds to earth, who love possessions over people and see no wrong in fulfilling all of their desires at the expense of others are placed with their kin. They live in a world where others are similar to them, so they may see the true consequences of selfish behavior.

This is why it is important to work and study to increase your spirituality. To understand that we are on earth to learn to improve, to become better. As you ascend you will be granted the pleasure of being with others like you. With a group that cherishes and supports you. Allan Kardec explains how affiliated souls tend to stay with each other:

“These spirits happy at being together, seek out one another. Incarnation separates them only momentarily, because after their reentry into the errant state they meet again like friends who have returned from a journey. Frequently, they even follow one another into incarnation, wherein they are reunited in the same family or the same circle, working together for their mutual advancement.”[4]

The tight cluster of souls will watch out for each other. While some are incarnates on earth, others will look on from high and help guide the spirits going through their trials. Each helps everyone in the group to advance together. As they become purer, their friendship becomes more concrete, as their bodies divest themselves of matter. Petty jealousies and selfishness don’t disrupt their relationships.

The more you open your heart and mind to the Spirituality, the Supreme Intelligence, the more you shall be helped in your quest for improvement. Whatever effort you expend in denying yourself pleasures in this life in order to help others, you shall be repaid a hundredfold when you re-enter the Explore-Small-front-coverworld from whence you came, the spirit realm.

Understand where we are taken after we pass on from our physical life and what are the places on the spirit world where we have been and are going to by reading my book, Explore Your Destiny – Since Your Life’s Path is (mostly) Predetermined.

Council of Related Planets – Led by Christ

“At every age, in the beginning, the High Ones, so we are told, take counsel. Results accruing from sometime ages are gathered and laid before them. Those of ages very ancient are rehearsed in tabulated form and briefly. Those of the nearer ages are given in greater detail. Those of the ages last past in full. These are considered in their bearing upon events at that time proceeding on earth. Then the cognate planets have their hearing, and next both earth and them together. So the Council gets agait, and, with no hurry, comes at such conclusion as, when put into operative form for the next age, will be harmonious with the acts of other Hierarchies who have in charge the guidings of planets other than this of earth.” Read More.

What Really Happens During Near Death Experiences – According to Spiritism: 12 NDE’s are Explained and Explored (NDEs Explained by Spiritism)

What Really Happens During Near Death Experiences – According to Spiritism: 12 NDE’s are Explained and Explored (NDEs Explained by Spiritism)

Here is the Introduction:

Introduction
Why are we interested in Near Death Experiences (NDE)? With the advent of the internet, social media allows masses of people to more efficiently pool together shared experiences than at any other time in history. What was once an isolated phenomenon is now a common occurrence. Whereas, in times past a simple farmer or a rich landowner who would be able to pull back from death, their story, if they chose to tell it, would be a solitary happenstance. Easily explained away or believed. It made no difference, since the significance of the account would be eventually dismissed as an outlying data point.

The recent improvement in the speed and efficiency of human communication in conjunction with modern medical methods of assisting the human body to recover after trauma has supported the explosion of accounts. And as the interpretations of each individual who returned became widely known and disseminated, others choose to finally reveal their own personal story.

Therefore a small bookshelf of NDEs is now becoming a library. Recollections from every country, culture, language and age group now reside in the great internet cloud. A mountain of data, which can no longer be wished away or ignored. The parallels and common themes from all corners of the world preclude everyone’s account to be merely mass hysteria. NDEs aren’t in the territory of alien encounters. Doctors, lawyers, professors, engineers, smart and not-so-smart people are reporting in. Telling us similar refrains, with the added mystery of some NDEs where the person either saw or is told of events that they could not have possibly known in their current state. Taken as a whole, the only conclusion is that something must be going on.

Hence, interested researchers are beginning to seek an explanation. For most, the objective is to prove that these are the common side effects of a brain winding down. The equivalent of a policeman telling the crowd to move on, there’s nothing to see here. But, controlled experiments have a way of determining their own truth. With facts and figures, certain conclusions must be either discarded or entertained.

Freedom of Speech and Thought is Important to the Spirit World

Communication Between Spirits of Different Levels

mind-reading2There is a short three paragraph description of how spirits communicate with other spirits at different levels, by the spirit Zabdiel, who resided in the tenth level of heaven, when he communicated to the Rev. G. Vale Owen in 1910. The passage lacks details, but the central theme is the need to condition oneself spiritually to speak with spirits superior to oneself. Read More.
