Uranus And Gaia

Uranus - Father of the Gods

When Creation Was Begun – According To Greek Legend

The ancient myths and legends that have come down to us throughout the ages, without exception, have always contained important esoteric messages that to this day can help us in our search for a better understanding of the purpose and meaning of our race’s and our world’s existence. For as long as we still insisted on taking these tales literally and interpreted them exoterically, from a purely earthly view, their true higher meanings had to remain hidden. Yet, as soon as the light of our inner teacher or intuition penetrates them, each one without hesitation begins to reveal the precious spiritual treasures they have contained ever since the Angels and Masters on the highest levels of life gave them to our world.

Take for example the psalms of the Bible. They are so old that their origins are lost in the mists of time. Most of them are believed to have been written by King David and King Solomon, and that this probably took place in Jerusalem during the tenth century BC. King David lived from about 1037 to 967 BC. However, some of the psalms, if one looks carefully at the words, must have been written after the Jewish exile in Babylon when Cyrus, the King of Persia, invaded and took over the Babylonian empire. He decreed that the Jews should be allowed back to rebuild their temple. This took place around 539BC and the years following. Therefore it is possible that the psalms were written over a period of well over 500 years. Because by the time the Jesus legend came into being, the psalms had been well established as devotional songs and poems, they were included in the New Testament. Even the Master’s supposedly dying words on the cross ‘My God, My God. why have you forsaken me’ had been taken from Psalm 22.

Psalm 91:4 promises: ‘He will cover you with His feathers and under his wings you shall trust. His truth shall be your shield and buckler.’ Buckler is an old fashioned word for a small round shield. It is usually held by a handle or warn on the arm, as a means of protection and defence.

Telling us things like the above was good enough for humankind’s limited grasp of God’s wisdom and truth when the various parts of the Bible were written, especially way back when the Psalm came into being, but still at the time when the Jesus legend was written. That’s why in St. John 1:5 we are told: ‘In the beginning was the Word and the Word was with God…’ But thanks be to God and the Angels, since then our perception of the spiritual background of life, of God and of ourselves has changed and increased dramatically and we are expected, by going within and working with our inner teacher, to work on finding out how Creation really did begin. By now, we know that God’s truth cannot be found in books and that, no matter how high and holy they may be, it may only be partly revealed to us there. Time and again we all have been placed in this life, so that in the end each one of us in their own right should be guided to their own conclusion that this kind of truth can only be found within. 

The main purpose of the times we spend on the Earth plane is to help us all to evolve into seekers of wisdom and truth. Irrespective of whether someone is as yet aware of this or not, each one of us has been placed in this life to do their share of getting an ever better grasp of God’s Divine wisdom and truth. As we fulfil this task, the individual and collective consciousness of our world slowly expands. Like the early Christians were during the Piscean Age, we are the pioneers of the Aquarian Age. We are here to find new and better ways of living and being through a greater understanding of the spiritual concepts that lie behind all life and each is required to make their contribution towards this. I am all for keeping and preserving that which was good in the past.

Having done that, each one of us has to get on with climbing the spiritual mountain, hand in hand with God and the Angels, yet on our own. The work we do and the treasures we find set those who follow behind us free to make their own discoveries. That, in my view, is the only way humankind will ever be able to achieve some real progress. As our knowledge of God, the Universe and ourselves will always continue to grow, I believe that in our search for truth a cautionary note does not come amiss. Before God every soul stands alone, i.e. the perception of what this concept means is unique to every soul and that is why everybody’s truth will always vary slightly from anyone else’s.

Human souls yearn for stability and security, yet, for as long as we expect to find them on the Earth plane, we shall look in vain and that for the simple reason that they are not meant to be found there. In our explorations into certainties and absolute truths we may turn to a host of sources in the hope of finding them, But in the end each one of us has to discover for themselves that they do not exist anywhere. This is because all life – including ours and that of our world – is relentlessly moving forwards and upwards on an evolutionary spiral that constantly takes us and our world onto ever higher levels of consciousness. This process eventually returns each one of us into the oneness with our Creator.

As established in other parts of the jottings, the law of life is evolution. Universes and the worlds within them are born, evolve and grow. When they have outlived their usefulness, they are destroyed again, to make room for new ones to come into existence. In spite of the fact that our understanding of the meaning of God has vastly improved over the ages, the only constant in the whole of Creation will always be the spirit within, the eternal presence of the spirit of God and our own. As a spark of the Divine, like God we too are immortal and cannot die. The spirit of God and our own will be with us forever. Anything else we may require along our evolutionary pathway will eventually be surplus to requirement and has to be shed again.
