Autumn Reflections

Seth said that there is no division of the self, which is another way of saying that creation is one.� Nevertheless, each particle of creation has its individual integrity, and every atom has its divine awareness.� Seth says that the bedrock of our reality, its most elementary component, is a unit of consciousness, which is far, far smaller than an atom or any subatomic particle yet identified.� In the fragmentation of awareness of which physical reality represents the lowest level, many levels of awareness, wholeness, and fragmentation exist. �An electron in a squirrel�s toe has an awareness of itself, its role in the oxygen atom it is part of, its role in the water molecule it belongs to, the cell it helps comprise, the muscle it is part of, the squirrel it is part of, the squirrel species it is part of, the planet it is part of, the solar system it is part of, the galaxy it is part of, and the universe it is part of.� They all build upon each other, all part of the whole, similar to an onion�s skin.� The package of consciousness that concerns humans is commonly called the soul, which manages the growth of awareness through the physical plane for sentient beings.� Every human being is part of a soul, or as it is stated more commonly, each human has a soul.� Michael calls human beings fragments.� According to Michael�s view of creation, an earthbound human is generally one of more than one hundred lives that a soul experiences on the physical plane.� In the grand plan of regaining fallen awareness, souls help integrate the growing awareness.� Michael�s conception of a soul is probably not the same thing as those who gave away their free will to begin The Fall, but it could be considered close.� The entity that Paddy McMahon dealt with seems to equate the two. [32] � Virtually every piece of mystical material admits that reincarnation is a fact.� The mystical branches of the Judeo-Christian religions, specifically the Rosicrucians, Sufis, and Cabbalists (the mystical branches of Christianity, Islam and Judaism) all taught reincarnation as a fact, while their orthodox counterparts denied it.� On the other side of the veil, the closer a personality is to earthly life, the less it is aware of its soul, or other Earth lives its soul has lived.� Although the heavily edited New Testament removed more than half of Jesus�s life, and probably many references to reincarnation, Jesus�s statement that John the Baptist was Elijah returned to human form has survived. [33] � The plan to regain awareness is a vast one that no earthly awareness can fully comprehend.� Even the exalted awareness that Jesus and Buddha manifested can only hint at the big picture.� Physical reality is where awareness grows at its most elementary level.� The lessons learned at the physical reality level are essential for the progressing levels of awareness, similar to a three-year-old�s lessons of caring for himself being essential lessons that see him through his earthly life.� Everything on the physical plane has correspondence to �higher� planes.� The most beautiful tree on Earth is a drab reflection of how it appears in higher planes.� The most profound and intense love that we ever feel for our loved ones barely hints at the magnitude of love that permeates the higher planes, and it is as available as the air we breathe.� The physical plane is the most rudimentary manifestation of the higher planes� principles.� Numerology studies the mystical significance of numbers.� Numbers are not only for scientists and accountants, but a reflection of the higher planes, and today�s mathematics is merely one of many ways to deal with numbers.� There are perhaps an infinite number of valid mathematics systems, and we could glimpse many that would have little or no meaning to our minds.� Nevertheless, there are many significances to numbers that go well beyond what scientists think of them, with one, two, three, four and five having a great deal of mystical significance.� If there was a �divine� number, however, it might be seven.� There are many systems of thought in which the number seven has special significance (seven chakras, seven deadly sins, sacred seven prayers, seven days of the week, seven colors of the rainbow, etc.).� The Michael teachings are oriented around the number seven, and can be useful in helping understand the soul�s journey through the physical plane. � The Michael teachings define the soul as an entity that inhabits the astral plane.� The astral plane is the one just �above� the physical plane.� The soul that Michael describes �gives birth� to about 120 personalities that inhabit the physical plane.� Some souls live only one earthly life, others live thousands, and some never do.� It is up to the soul.� Again, there is not time as it is thought of past the physical plane, and the soul�s 120 personalities all exist at once as far as the soul is concerned, similar to leaves on a tree.� However, the physical plane has been set up with linear time, so part of the soul�s awareness experiences those lifetimes in linear sequence, and each experience builds on the other, as the soul�s awareness �grows� through the physical plane.� The soul grows in awareness with each physical life lived.� The astral plane is where souls rest, learn, and plan between lives.� When people have NDEs, out-of-body experiences, or visions of heaven, they are generally describing the astral plane.� In a paradoxical fashion that earthly brains cannot fully comprehend, souls �invest� themselves in each earthly personality that they give birth to.� The soul experiences each physical lifetime and learns the lessons it provides, although the earthly personality has little or no conscious awareness of the soul that gave it birth.� On one hand, that does not seem very fair.� On the other, the �on its own� aspect of the earthly personality allows it to develop in its own right.� When the earthly personality leaves physical reality, it comes back to the astral plane and is eventually reunited with the soul, but it might take quite some �time.�� Just as every atom has its own awareness and �soul,� so does each human being.� The human soul is no �better� than the atom�s �soul,� as all are ultimately made of the Creator, and are the Creator.� Even so, the human soul is much �larger� and more complicated and evolved than the atom�s soul, just as the soul is a more evolved and complicated entity than an earthly personality.� That does not detract from the integrity of each atom or human personality, however.� Each soul eventually becomes part of a larger entity on the plane �above� the astral plane, called the causal plane.� Michael claims to be an entity composed of more than 1,000 souls.� With each soul living more than 100 lives, the Michael entity draws upon the experience of more than 100,000 human lifetimes to inform his perspective.� The further the entity integrates on its way back to the godhead and full awareness, the less �personality� it possesses, so Michael has a clinical detachment and dry sense of humor, mostly confined to puns.� Michael hails from the middle of the causal plane, and is thus called a mid-causal entity.� Seth has also been called a mid-causal entity.� Seth evidences far more personality than Michael does, perhaps partly because Jane Roberts is part of the Seth entity, as he is her �big brother.�� Many people channel the Michael entity, but each interacts with a slightly different facet.� One person may channel a facet composed of 50 souls of Michael�s 1050, while another person channels a �subgroup� of 40 others.� It, combined with different channels, gives the Michael material a slightly different flavor, depending on who channels it.� The Michael teachings correspond to many others, such as Gurdjieff�s, the Indian caste system, and others (the caste system being a badly distorted corruption of valid perspectives, as all systems in a world of scarcity tend to become).� When souls begin the long journey, they choose a �role,� which is a common theme in mystical material.� Seth discussed �speakers� as one of the permanent roles that some souls choose, while Alexander describes a system quite similar to Michael�s.� In Michael�s view, a soul will choose one of seven roles: artisan, server, warrior, scholar, sage, priest, and king.� Each has its own orientation and awareness, and each soul will always have its initially-chosen role.� Each role has its strengths and vulnerabilities.� Each role progresses through its ages and its awareness expands as it �grows� older.� Michael teaches that there are seven soul awarenesses, or �ages,� with seven levels within each �age.�� On the astral plane, the soul is aware of all of its physical lives, but as the physical plane journey progresses with its linear time, each personality is somewhat aware of its �earlier� lives, and builds upon that awareness with each succeeding life.� The �grand plan� to regain awareness has been designed so that no soul can �backslide� all that far.� We cannot really �fail.�� That is apparently part of the Creator�s compassion.� No soul can become so lost that it cannot get back home.� We have free will, but it is constrained by some fairly narrow parameters on the physical plane: we cannot remember our nightly trips back to the astral plane, we generally cannot recall our past lives, we must eat to sustain our bodies, gravity makes us earthbound, the love energy that comprises the very atmosphere on the higher planes is not obvious here, we feel pain, and must die one day An Ordinary Person with an
