“Markandeya Rishi Tempted by Cupid and His Followers” . by Jadurani devi dasi . with comments by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 26 May 2018

Dear Ones,

At the below link are a beautiful painting on canvas by Jadurani devi dasi, entitled “Markandeya Rishi Tempted by Cupid and His Followers.”

The accompanying scriptural reference, Shrimad Bhagavatam, 12.8.15-16, is strikingly pertinent to what has been percolating round through the astral airs, and clearing from Earth, since the year 2000 …

Link: “Markandeya Rishi Tempted by Cupid and His Followers.” by Jadurani devi dasi … http://bbt.se/art_html/Markandeya.html ..

The scriptural description linked to above has to do with temptations a spiritual person faces on the path to knowledge of God. Yet we are all experiencing these temptations in recent years. Thus, we humankind are all, in these years of the Second Coming … of what Lightworkers term the Ascension … and of what other faiths term the Last Judgment … facing those same temptations that heretofore were only grappled with by saints and sages.

Lightning fast, each of us faces temptation upon temptation … as the scripture says: dancing girls, delights of the senses, greed, and intoxication. If not on the physical plane, then wafting through the astral airs.

The first word in the above scripture is ‘Cupid’. Who is Cupid, really? Is he the god of romantic love, who gets couples to tie the knot? Or is he a being who gets folks so involved in the idea of romance, that they forget all about seeking God? Or is he a being who drags this instance of the play of God in manifest reality down into the Satan worlds?

What name do we hear most frequently on the astral ‘internet’? If not ‘Cupid’, then what name do we hear? Who is this seeming man, who mystifies our sleeping minds with thoughts of dancing girls, or dancing boys? Who rules our daydreams with internet porn? Who drags our high and hopeful thoughts into the mire of object grasping, almost gotten, ne’er forsaken dreams?

Cupid, the man who made the hall of mirrors that we call the world. Cupid, who conjures up the Other that can ne’er be us. Try as we might, we will not find him … or her … our true Beloved … in the mirrors of the senses. In the eyes of the world.

Yet, in those eyes, if we look closely, we can catch a glimpse of Him.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

Apollyon (Abaddon), Male Competition, and the HIV / AIDS Virus . by Alice B. Clagett

Previously titled: Apollyon (Abaddon), the Drive to Competition, and the HIV / AIDS Virus

Dear Ones,

Apollyon is another name for Abaddon, a force of destruction mentioned in the Book of Revelation. In another blog …

Link: “Overcoming Abaddon (Apollyon),” by Alice B. Clagett, published on 10 October 2016 …  http://wp.me/p2Rkym-6fa ..

… I have mentioned that this force, the ‘bringer of locusts’, might be considered the force that has brought the HIV virus into reality in the third dimension … which is to say, into physical reality here on Earth.

APOLLYON OR ABADDON AS THE DRIVE TO COMPETITION

ADULTS ONLY (PG-13 – VIOLENCE): Here is an awful painting of one man eating another man … Link: “Abaddon Eating a Person” … http://g01.a.alicdn.com/kf/HTB1YeL_KpXXXXcfXFXXq6xXFXXX7/Art-oil-painting-Repro-Abaddon-eat-person-monster-24×36.jpg_640x640.jpg ..

Maybe the lesson is that the men of the future, of New Life on New Earth, will not vie with each other through competition, but instead work together for New Creation.

SUBCONSCIOUS SYMBOLISM OF ONE-UPMANSHIP: MALE COMPETITION REPRESENTED BY THE ACT OF RECTAL INTERCOURSE

This painting may also be viewed from a psychological perspective. In this context, and without explicitly portraying the act of rectal intercourse, the artist seems to me to portray the energy thread behind this act that has been so often mentioned in the noosphere in recent years (and, the clair-gifted may notice, is now in the process of transforming to love and Light).

The main way the HIV virus spreads is through rectal intercourse (could be among men, or between a man and a woman). Now, this act of rectal intercourse is interpreted by the subconscious mind as “f— you in the a– h—” or the like … in other words, as an act of hatred by one human being against another. Thus it could be said that our subconscious minds, the shadows of our personalities, have called forth this HIV virus as a physical representation or enactment of the drive to competition, the drive to “f— each other in the a– h—“

The drive to competition is one aspect of patriarchy, of the imbalances that took place in the last part of the Atlantean Age just now past. This competitive instinct, like the HIV virus, is causing a great deal of suffering in the world today.

THE CHALLENGE THAT HUMANKIND FACES RIGHT NOW

As you may know, many are now expanding in consciousness from Awareness of their physical (3D) presence on Earth, to an Awareness of the astral plane (4D). There they must face and overcome the tests of the negative astral beings.

The next test takes place at the ‘borderline’ between the astral plane (4D) and the Kingdom of God, which will be our New Life on New Earth (5D). As all beings on this new plane of existence … this new field of Awareness … feel compassionate love like that of Christ, and peace like that of the Buddha, we must drop all energy threads that are not of compassionate love and peace, before we can enter this sacred land.

One such energy thread is our sense of competition with other human beings. This is the challenge that faces humankind right now: To cease the competition, the aggression that causes so much suffering for all of us; to come together as a world people and help make life better for all humankind.

This coming together in loving kindness will usher in the New Age, which all will enjoy as soon as the squaring away process known in many faiths as the Last Judgment has taken place. In fact, this ‘Last Judgment’ is the process that effects the switchover from our consciousness as 3D and 4D beings, to our consciousness as 5D or higher.

ON BLESSING THE WORLD WITH PERFECT WELL-BEING

I am in great hopes, as well, that the departure of that dense distortion of the Light will be accompanied by DNA upgrades that allow humankind to gracefully deal with the test of the HIV virus as well as for antisocial personality disorder (which may affect millions of people) …

Let humankind be blessed with perfect well-being, perfect health, perfect happiness, and perfect ease of spirit.

Dear Ones,

INTRODUCTION

Is the Last Judgment something to fear? Is entry into the kingdom of God a pass/fail event? 1 John 24:16-21  speaks to that.

1 John 4:16-21 KJV (public domain)

16 “And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.

17 “Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.

18 “There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.

19  “We love him, because he first loved us.

20 “If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?

21 “And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also.”

After the video is a lightly edited Summary …

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice. I Am of the Stars.

I have here some verses for you from 1 John 4:16-21. I like them because they give us a tool for getting through these days of the Last Judgment. Especially right now, during the Fall Equinox 2015 … or during any Equinox … it is good, because there is a lot of energy coming in. I will show you why it is good. Here goes …

And we have known and believed the love that God hath to us. God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.” –1 John 24:16

So what is happening here? In the first sentence, Christ is saying that we know and believe “the love that God hath to us.” These words are important; especially, the word ‘believe’. We ‘believe’ that God loves us.

Now this may seem self-evident to many of you. But in the big cities, and sometimes in the small towns, across the world, there are people that do not know this. They believe the headlines that they read in the newspapers, and they do not understand all that God gives us: That our very existence, our Awareness, is a duplication or fractal of the existence and Awareness of God.

The fact that we perceive what we perceive, comes from God. Everything comes from God. So we have a lot to be grateful for. And why would God do this if God did not love us? it just does not make sense, to feel that God does not love us. I do not know how people get stuck in that.

The next sentence is good, too: “God is love; and he that dwelleth in love dwelleth in God, and God in him.” So concentrating on the heart chakra … concentrating on love … will bring us near to God, and God near to us. And you will see why in a minute … this is very important. The next verse …

Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the day of judgment: because as he is, so are we in this world.” –1 John 24:17

Hmmm. Let’s see … This verse speaks of the Day of Judgment. The Day of Judgment is now, actually. But it is taking place in an expanded timeline, so that everybody can be ready and can pass the test, if they want to.

These timelines depend on each person. People are arising … or ascending in Awareness … in flocks; and also individually. The timelines shift around like you would not believe. You know?

People merge with other people on a particular timeline. And sometimes they need more time to clear the Darkness, and to get out into the Light and into the love. And so they go through a slow curve of Time, where they can experience hatred and fear, and all kinds of things like that, and then come back out of that, into love again … into a space synchronously with other people who have gone Zip! … like that! … through that particular snag. Do you see what I mean?

This is the Last Judgment, but really, it is the time of clearing, and of becoming love. And everybody has a chance, a possibility, of doing that. So, here He says, “Herein is our love made perfect, that we may have boldness in the Day of Judgment.”

‘Boldness in the Day of Judgment’ … Those who are feeling love, or positive emotions like love … appreciation, gratitude, joy, peacefulness … those kinds of feelings … In other words, they are confident, during this time of Judgment … They are confident enough to get through it fast, without too much trouble … without the wailing and gnashing of teeth thing. On to the next verse …

“There is no fear in love; but perfect love casteth out fear: because fear hath torment. He that feareth is not made perfect in love.” –1 John 24:18

Alright, so this is very important. The people that are on the longer, snaggy timelines … the slow loop into the Kingdom of God … These people are feeling fear. So it is about emotions. It is not about intellect or belief.

The Last Judgment has to do with perfection of the emotion of love … the feeling of love. If you choose fear (because this is a Free Will Planet) … if you choose fear instead of love … then fear hath torment. And that is the torment of Hell that is spoken of, for the Last Days, the Days of Judgment …

There are those that take the slow bus, the slow boat, to the Kingdom of God. And there are those that go Pachoom! … right through, and into the Light and the love. They are just ready; they make that decision.

I know this is not like the standard interpretation, but this is the way I feel it to be. You may disagree, but there is just no point in judging other people, because, time and time again, Christ speaks of judgment as being not the thing to d.. Forgiveness is the thing to do, right?

So a way to avoid judging other people, is to think in terms of these timelines. It is just one way. So, verse 19, speaking of God …

“We love him, because he first loved us.” –1 John 24:19

And this is all about love, these last few verses …

“If a man say, I love God, and hateth his brother, he is a liar: for he that loveth not his brother whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?” –1 John 24:20

So in a nutshell, we need to love everyone … Here, the physical and mental Awareness are expanding into the emotional body (the astral plane) right now. And people are arising into that Awareness in flocks. And so we are beginning to clair see and hear people all around us … And not just those from our own faith!

And so the first thing that happens is, we start ricocheting against other people’s beliefs and negative feelings … and regrouping … and glomming to other people … and becoming more and more aware of whatever is not love. in our emotional bodies.

It is very easy, during this process, to start feeling negative about other people because, in our minds … and maybe with our astral vision … we are hearing and seeing and feeling other people all the time. So it is very easy for the emotions to get snagged on this notion of blaming other people for the clearing process.

So that is occurring. And it is just not helpful at all to do that. It is very unhelpful to do that. What we have to do is, to keep aligning with God and turning to love, during this process. And that will shorten our perception of our own journey … because, truth to tell, the Kingdom of God has already arrived, and is already here. And it only takes our clearing of our own hearts, for us to understand that that is true … however long it takes. Good tidings, right?

And the last verse I have in this series is …

“And this commandment have we from him, That he who loveth God love his brother also.” —1 John 24:21

… So, just a reaffirmation that the way to get through the astral tangles right now is to continue to feel love, no matter what. Do not attach to any mental scenario that is going on. Do not shade yourself Light and the other people in the story Dark. Do not even assume that anything is happening, other than that the great Light and love of God is becoming manifest to all humankind.

You all take care! Love you lots!

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars

Dear Ones,

EARTH IS PASSING INTO THE FEELING WORLD (THE FOURTH DIMENSION, THE ASTRAL PLANE)

As you may know, Earth is now passing into 4D, the astral plane, sometimes called ‘the feeling world.’ Actually, it is not that we are passing into this dimension … rather that our 3D physical reality is expanding to include 4D as well.

To put it in human terms, before the 2012 Shift, sometimes termed Ascension or the Great Awakening, most humans (except for those with the ‘second sense’) experienced physical life on Earth in terms of the input of the five senses … seeing, hearing, tasting, sniffing, and touch.

EXPECTATIONS OF EARTH’S GREAT RELIGIONS REGARDING THE LAST JUDGMENT

Christianity. Now for Christianity, the expectation is that after life on Earth, our Souls experience one of two (Protestantism) or three (Catholicism) states: hell, purgatory or heaven. These are states that exist in the feeling world … 4D, the astral plane.

Judaism. For traditional Judaism, there is expectation of a judgment day, the resurrection of the dead, and the assignment of Souls to one of three categories: heaven, permanent hell, or temporary hell (1).

Islam. Muslims also hold the expectation that there is life after death, and that the Soul will eventually be judged, along with all humankind, and will then experience either heaven or hell. Until that time, deceased Souls, while in the grave, will experience a foretaste of that. (2)

Buddhism and Hinduism. For the Buddhists and the Hindus, the expectation is that, after we passed on, and before our next incarnation, our Souls spend quite an interlude on the astral plane, in school, as it were, for the education of our Souls. Could be 1,000 years of schooling. Then, on to a new incarnation, a new body, and a whole new set of lessons to learn … Earth school.

So for many folks around the world, there is an understanding that the astral plane exists, separate from the physical plane. And also, that it is a state experienced after death.

WE CAN NOW EXPERIENCE THE PHYSICAL WORLD AND THE ASTRAL PLANE SIMULTANEOUSLY

The Shift that happened in 2012 made it possible for humans to experience both 3D and 4D at the same time…. To use the ‘parlance’, the Shift allowed folks to bilocate between these two dimensions. This is a first step in developing our multidimensionality skills.

OUR NEW CLAIR SKILLS

What happens when we bilocate in this way? In addition to our five physical senses, we begin to develop the clair (astral) senses:

  • clairvoyance (astral vision),
  • clairaudience (astral hearing),
  • clairsentience (astral ‘feeling’),
  • clairscent (astral smelling),
  • clairtangency (psychometrics),
  • clairgustance (astral tasting),
  • clairempathy (feeling the emotions of others),
  • channeling (conveying information from the astral realm or a higher dimension), (3) and
  • clairhealing (fractal patterning)
  • clair electromagnetic sensitivity, and many others

So 3D-4D bilocation involves getting used to a whole new set of senses, a whole new way of perceiving reality.

ON ACCEPTING AND INTEGRATING OUR REPRESSED EMOTIONS (OUR ‘DARK BODY’, THE ‘SHADOW OF OUR PERSONALITY’)

In addition, when we bilocate we must integrate our feeling world with our mental world. This involves getting in touch with our repressed emotions. Specifically, the moment we step into 4D awareness, we will encounter the ‘shadow of our personality’ … the ‘Dark Body’ within our Body of Light. Which is to say, the things we have done that we want to forget about … our Soul wounding experiences in this lifetime and in other incarnations, and our emotions that do not meet societal expectations. Here is more on all that:

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Many Women Have Moved into the Fourth Dimension

It seems to me that what has been happening on the astral plane in the last few years in the feeling world … for the emotional bodies of humankind … is that women, in particular, are becoming increasingly sentient on the emotional plane … the fourth dimension.

Many Men, Because of Cultural Expectations Regarding Expressing Their Feelings, Are Just Now Stepping into Awareness of the Fourth Dimension

I can hear men talking in the fourth dimension, but it just seems to me that it is possible that they are existing in that dimension, like women, but not as aware of that dimension, because of societal expectations. So it has been hard for them, because many men are taught that feelings are not masculine. And that is the dimension into which we are expanding right now.

So it is very peculiar for me, hearing all men talking. I can even talk to men, on the astral plane, and they do not even know that it is happening. They are not even aware. And I can talk to women, and some women actually do know that I am talking to them.

And what I find is that, when men wake up to these emotions that they have … maybe when a woman tells them what she hears, or when they start listening and they start hearing, and integrating the fourth dimension into their realms of awareness … then they become just like the women were two years ago: They become very shocked about the whole thing.

When We First Step into the Fourth Dimension, We Encounter Our Deepest, Darkest Secrets

Because what happens is, all of the repressed emotions … all of the things that society does not expect of us … are the things that are jammed down and compressed in the fourth dimension, in the emotional world. And so, as the Light comes in, what is happening is that all of these compressions are getting the old zingo! and coming to Light.

And all of the deepest, darkest secrets of humankind are also coming to the Light. So the one thing that we did wrong in our life … that carries great social opprobrium … that thing is the thing that immediately comes up. And it makes a lot of people say: Oh my gosh! I don’t want to be in this dimension at all!

On Having Faith that Our Faults Will Be Forgiven

Yet that is what we are traveling through right now. It is really where Earth is right now. And so, we are all going to have to notice the things, and let those things go that are totally Dark and secret. We are going to have to let them go.

And we are going to have to have the faith that society will forgive us for our faults … Just as they laud the great, good things that we do for society, they will forgive us all our faults and peccadilloes. As we forgive them. As it says in the Lord’s Prayer: We’re sincerely hoping that God will forgive us our trespasses, as we forgive those that trespass against us.

So that is one place we can go for sure; because God will do it! And we can do it, because God does it. And then we can have that stance; it is like that karate stance called ‘horse stance’:

Image: Young girl in ‘horse stance’ … http://visihow.com/images/a/a6/Darla-horse-stance–large-msg-114428266624-2.jpg ..

It is both feet flat on the ground, knees slightly bent, feeling down into Mother Earth. We can have that feeling that we are who we are, and it does not matter about societal expectations.

God loves us. We forgive ourselves. And all is well.

. . . . .

LEVIATHAN
A poem by Alice B. Clagett
22 January 2012

O, we are all deep sea divers
and at night we ride the whale,
who churns and turns our dream-time hearts
with the strength of his mighty tale.

When morning comes, we stretch and yawn,
and walk to the window sill,
with nary a thought of those deep sea dreams
or the whale that we’re riding still.

All the sad, bad tales of our childhood woes
sink down into the deep,
and the length and breadth of our grown-up lives
are the size of the secrets we keep.

. . . . .

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars
