Teilhard, and a Speculative Look at Esoteric Realms
Well, it's the season to be jolly as 2002 struggles to a difficult
end. I will write three essays this month and I hope all of
you are in a good holiday mood. 2003 will be better. This is
a promise. I would also like to take the time now to thank Dongwei,
Alex, Evgueni, and Dov for their continuing support and very
steady correspondence. It makes it much easier to write these
long letters knowing that there is an appreciative audience
letter is by far the most speculative letter written yet. I
ask that you all suspend judgement and just enjoy the intellectual
of you probably do not know that there is a very subtle world
out there beyond our physical bodies. This world contains subtle
bodies that are extensions of the physical one. These "
astral " bodies are connected to subtle planes and are
closely aligned with the chakras. These are the subtle energy
portals that are connected to the physical body. Shamans and
mystics are well aquainted with these subtle bodies. Our emotions
and thoughts are located in these areas aswell as information
from our past-lives.
I'm sure many of you have heard of astral projection. This is
when the mind actually leaves the physical body through a second
phantom body tied to the physical body through an etheric cord.
I will discuss this interesting phenomena shortly.
Teilhard talks about psychic convergence. It's tempting to speculate
that he means convergence of subtle bodies. Subtle bodies create
an aura around a person and much information can be gleaned
by a trained psychic looking at these auras. Fear, worry, and
annoyance are bad for the subtle body and these emotions are
often rife in low-chakra people. These unfortunate people have
cloudy and very dark subtle bodies. Higher-chakra people have
luminous and clear subtle bodies. Saints have very refined subtle
Unnecessary emotions fritter away energy. High-chakra types
are immune to this problem because of their air-tight emotional
discipline. But sensitives still in psychic training can be
seriously affected by low-chakra types. All thoughts create
radiating vibrations and floating thought forms. These thought
forms made up of psychic subtle matter can be very powerful
and can be extremely well directed by a strong and steady will.
Thought forms are sometimes mistaken for psychic entities by
untrained psychics. They can take a life of their own. Bad thought
forms always boomer-rang and good ones break through to higher
vibratory levels. Mental vibes effect the subtle bodies more
than the physical body and when these subtle bodies are damaged
then the physical body starts to rapidly deteriorate. Impure
foods pollute both the physical and subtle bodies and often
attract bad entities. Clean places are good for both physical
and subtle bodies. Also quiet places. Positive mental vibes
bring in more positive vibes and negative vibes invite more
negative vibes. It's that simple.
Depression is bad for physical and subtle bodies too. So it's
important to stay content and optimistic regardless of what's
going on. You need to SLOW the vibes in your bodies and not
hook into vibrations that are in a pitched frenzy. Psychic entities
can cause bad moods. Not just physical people. Insanity is due
to defects in the subtle body. You need to be strong and steady
in your mind. This is not easy in the speeded up world we're
living in now.
The subtle bodies are often at play during one's dreams. Indeed
The Little Monk's astral body met his teacher's astral body
during sleep. Aswell as many other types of dream entities.
Ginger Smudge is a kid's show case for astral travel. Dream-time
is astral time. You can solve difficult problems there. Better
than in awake-time, but first you need to know this astral realm
exists. Modern people do not. They are tuned unfortunately to
a narrow bandwidth of the psychic spectrum. The subtle bodies
are just wider and hidden parts of our huge minds.
Emotions are heightened in the subtle bodies. In Harvest of
Gems one can see how my physical seperation from Summer did
not end in the realm of our mutual subtle bodies. Dream communication
between us became even more intense as a kind of compensation
for our physical seperateness. Subtle worlds are inter-mixed
with physical ones in my work. Harvest and 2-ss are good examples.
Little Monk and Ginger Smudge are subtle works in their entirety.
This awake-time/dream-time is basically a CONTINUITY which tantra
fully understands. In subtle worlds physical space is not an
obstacle. I myself recieved much instruction and information
from spiritual masters while deep in sleep and now my psychic
treasures need to be plucked out by more highly developed persons
or they could also be accessed by me in a future life afte I've
done more mind work on myself.
Often you can give your subtle body an assignment to do while
you are asleep. You can give it a problem to solve or it can
comfort a person you know. See what happens later in awake-time
then! You will be surprised! Psychic mediums often travel through
their subtle bodies in order to get important information on
other psychic planes. When your awareness of subtle/gross bodies
increases life becomes a continuous stream of consciousness
WITHOUT segregation into periods of rememberance and forgetfulness.
What kind of astral convergence occurs in the Teilhardian sense?
How do seperate subtle bodies create one larger subtle one?
I am tempted to think that all art is subtle body related. The
avante garde waves dove into dream-time and brought back fragmented
visions from the subtle planes. All poetry is a product of the
subtle bodies. Great art weaves gross and subtle realities by
acknowledging that both realities are going on symultaneously.
This is a big message in all my work.
Subtle bodies like gross bodies have atomic properties and can
mix to create new psychic kinds of reality. Apparitions are
subtle bodies taking on the particles of physical matter temporarily.
Death is the ultimate subtle body experience. Your entire life
is quickly mirrored in front of you. Sometimes one can also
see past lives if your concentration at death is powerful enough.
It depends how deep you can see in your other sublte bodies
where this information is fully stored.
Harvest and 2-ss is a kind of global Castaneda epic. But global
subtle bodies are explored. Not just individual ones. Global
vortices are giant subtle bodies composed of many individual
subtle bodies. Little noospheres which are highly unstable and
prone to serious stress-flip. I believe that Teilhard was trying
to combine gross and subtle matter in his modern evolutionary
world-view. Quantum mechanics, world war and psycho-analysis
in the 20th century were the sensate portals to psychic life
for modern humankind. The violent psychic chaos between 1914-45
was the crucial breakpoint in the history of the modern world.
My work comes from this historical turning point. Teilhard's
work aswell. Also avante garde art and systems theory in its
current primitive form.
Feelings, and emotions are lodged in the subtle bodies aswell
as karmic memories. Humans and their psychic protectors are
an alliance of subtle bodies on subtler planes. A Teilhardian
group-mind is this too. Pure and simple. It would be fascinating
to find out what kind of clash was going on between not only
U.S. airmen and the Vietcong in Vietnam, but also what kind
of conflict was going on between their psychic protectors. Or
the war between U.S. special forces and Al Qaeda in Afghanistan
along with their invisible guardians. What kind of psychic protectors
are looking after the translation team?
Few humans know how to live in the subtle planes after death.
Low-chakra people have a hard time when they die because for
them this is the first time they have to deal with life on subtler
planes. Not so high-chakra people. Subtle bodies like gross
ones have a particle structure that dissolves into one form
or another. All kinds of opportunities and delights exist in
the astral realms. Sleepers, dead people, spirits and saints
all dwell there and go back and forth. Much important information
is to be gleaned here.
Dead writers have been known to influence living writers. Saints
often work here in these realms in order to influence an outcome
on the physical plane. Who knows what subtle drama occured on
the astral plane when Constantine converted to Christianity.
How did the Christian protectors convert the pagan ones? What
about king Ashoka in India? How did the Buddhist protectors
convert the local Vedic ones? What kind of protectors influenced
Father Teilhard? Possibly St.Teilhard in the future....
Physical language cannot describe the astral or subtle reality
adequately. On the physical plane there is much ignorance. On
higher planes learning and wisdom are more possible. This is
why art and religion are important. Science has little to say
about wisdom. Impressions brought back from the astral realm
are often unreliable. Many objects are seen through multiple
angles symultaneously. Even familiar objects look unfamiliar.
There is less vision distortion of the physical kind with its
constant reliance on perspective. Harvest and 2-ss tries to
give to the reader as many astral snap-shots as possible sometimes
in order to get a bigger if more complicated view.
The harnessing of powerful global subtle bodies can be explosive.
Discipline in the higher subtler bodies allows for the taming
of emotions and instincts in the lower subtler bodies and in
the physical body too. This is why meditation is so important
especially if you have regular access to a spiritual master.
I am 44 years old and 25 of these years have been pretty much
life on the outer-rim. 18 years have been inside the inner realms.
My work chronicles these 18 years. Harvest one chronicles Tibet
and its aftermath in California. The realization of having a
past life and my first haphazard explorations of subtle bodies
through meditation occured during this period: 1984-90. Harvest
two begins with a pilgrimage in California and an intensification
of what went on in Harvest one. Also big spiritual masters appeared.
This occured in 1990-3. Then Harvest three takes off with an
international pilgrmage and the introduction of a female consort.
Subtle body dynamics really start getting interesting now and
this global pilgrimage like the one in California also introduced
many new mind masters. This occured between 1993-4.
Harvest four then introduces all of the above mentioned in an
even more advanced form along with transmissions of very ancient
teachings. My world becomes an astral one predominantly between
1994-6 in California. Finally in 1997-8 another global pilgrimage
takes me to the geographic source of these new teachings and
the astral connections now really become galactic. A vision
on planet earth becomes much too small. Mind travel back in
time and out into space now predominates.
1998 to the present the public transmission of this quest on
a global and digital level has become prime now. This is where
all of you come in and the documentation of this new phase has
just started, but there is plenty of raw material. It would
be nice to go back on another physical and global pilgrimage
in a few years and the psychic foundations for this future trip
are being laid right now as I type these words.
