Ascension Thoughts on the Parable of the Tares . by Alice B. Clagett

Written and published on 23 July 2021

Dear Ones,

I heard a great Bible story today called the “Parable of the Tares.” The story is about a man who sowed wheat in his field. But while he slept an enemy came and sowed ‘tares’ or weeds among the wheat, then crept off …

Image: “The Parable of the Tares,” by John Everett Millais, 1865, in Wikimedia Commons … https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:John_Everett_Millais_(1829-1896)_-_The_Enemy_Sowing_Tares_(St_Matthew_XIII,_24%E2%80%9325)_-_1925P103_-_Birmingham_Museums_Trust.jpg … public domain

When the servants of the man found out about the ‘tares’ they wanted to pull them up. But the man thought that might injure the good wheat that was growing in the field. Instead, the man asked his servants to let both grow together till the harvest. Then at that time the reapers would pull up the tares first, bundle them, and burn them. The wheat, which would be all that was left in the field, might then be gathered into the man’s barn …

Matthew 13:24-30 (KJV, public domain)

24 “Another parable put he forth unto them, saying, The kingdom of heaven is likened unto a man which sowed good seed in his field:

25 “But while men slept, his enemy came and sowed tares among the wheat, and went his way.

26 “But when the blade was sprung up, and brought forth fruit, then appeared the tares also.

27 “So the servants of the householder came and said unto him, Sir, didst not thou sow good seed in thy field? from whence then hath it tares?

28 “He said unto them, An enemy hath done this. The servants said unto him, Wilt thou then that we go and gather them up?

29 “But he said, Nay; lest while ye gather up the tares, ye root up also the wheat with them.

30 “Let both grow together until the harvest: and in the time of harvest I will say to the reapers, Gather ye together first the tares, and bind them in bundles to burn them: but gather the wheat into my barn.”

When I heard the sermon about the Parable of the Tares, the pastor made a very good point that we must stay awake all the time … insofar as we may … so as to prevent the Enemy (which to my way of thinking means Satan and his works) from contaminating or polluting the good fruits of our Christian labors. The pastor explained how easy it is to slip into a state of sleep, even in the daytime. He explained how important it is to be awake and saying our prayers, instead of sleeping through church services.

I also thought of how The Enemy enters our dreams at night, with thoughts we Christians feel to be wholly foreign to us. From that I imagined how important it must be to counter these inimical thought forms and nightmarish dreams with a good prayer on arising every morning. That way, I feel, we may strive to stunt the growth of whatever that stealthy, dark and evil being may sow in our psyches while we dream on, all unaware of his endeavors.

I had some other ideas about this Parable that I would like to mention here. For instance, one might feel the Parable expresses there are both good and evil men in the world, whom God (the householder in the Parable) allows to dwell together on Earth. Then one might interpret that on the Day of Judgment … which many Christians feel will come to pass during the Ascension process … God will winnow the wheat from the tares, so that some people will be cast into the fires of Hell, and others will be gathered into the Holy Congregation that He shelters near Him.

There are Ascensioneers who agree with this idea. They feel … or used to feel, until the year 2012 … that only a portion of human beings would Awaken to Christ Consciousness, to the ‘Fifth Dimension’, during the Ascension process. Back then, they thought that other human beings would go through another long cycle of Earthly experiences before their Souls were ready and eager to go through an Ascension process to take place in the distant future.

Then at about the time of The Shift in 2012, quite a few Ascensioneers began to feel that Earth herself was arising and awakening, and that all the beings on her, within her, or above her, were also inevitably becoming more refined in energy and consciousness … that there would be no exceptions, either through enduring the Ascension process, or through death, to what some Christians call the Tribulation.

This is what the Ascensioneers think of as ‘burning away of the ‘dross’; of the ‘malware’ installed by The Enemy, and which is foreign to our true nature; or as dissolving of the Soul wounding encountered during our Earthly experiences. Everyone on Earth, they felt, was taking part in the Ascension process. Everyone’s energy field was being upgraded from one sort of energy so that it would include a more refined sort of energy. That was because we children of Earth, they felt, could not but follow closely in her footsteps.

Sidebar: Prep Work for the Refiner’s Fire

The fire of refinement of our energy field as we enter the Fifth Dimension might seem a fearful notion, or we might ready ourselves for the experience with a feeling of faith, and of hope in a New Tomorrow.

Whether we experience fear or joy, whether we feel a burning sensation … as is oft mentioned in Christianity as being ‘the woeful fires of Hell’ … or whether we feel blissful upliftment … pictured in the Christian world as standing at the right hand of Christ, near the Throne of God … depends on how we prepare ourselves emotionally for the Ascension process.

The video below offers an example of prep work for a pleasing experience of energetic refinement during Ascension …

………………..

I feel the idea that all human beings will be marching along together, in ‘lock step’, during the Ascension process to be a little misleading, a little facile, considering the theories of Multitemporality and Multidimensionality I and other Ascensioneers have channeled.

Surely on an Earth whose fundaments are free will and the All, in a Universe comprising many alternate timelines, many alternate dimensions, many alternate realities, there must be the longer ‘Ascension ride’ for those whose Souls are eager to acquire greater wisdom through physical experience in the third dimension, and through astral experience in the fourth dimension, while on the way to greater understanding of Christ Consciousness in the fifth dimension … must there not?

Given the theories of Multitemporality and Multidimensionality, there is ample leg room for each of us to experience this grand sweep of the Ascension process … a time-space continuum that suits each of us to a tee. Yet in our own optimum Awareness timeline and dimension, there may be many other seeming human forms whose Awareness timeline and dimension is not our own.

To us, they may seem to be sleepwalking through the Ascension process. It may seem to us that they have ‘missed the boat’. In reality, though, it may be that they are wide awake and ascending, here on Earth, in a space-time continuum that is slightly different from our own.

Yet through God’s mysterious wonders, I feel we may all emerge in the realm of Christ Consciousness at what may seem to our human sensibilities to be exactly the same moment. That is because the Fifth Dimension exists beyond Time and Space, in the Eternal Now. Thus we may anticipate we will all be together, in one grand instant, in the presence of Christ in His great glory.

From my fellow Ascensioneers I hear that, from that Eternal Now, He may teach us to dip into this timeline or that … into this dimension or that … so that we and our fellow Ascensioneers may once more enjoy Earthly life, through His Will, and by His Grace. But in so doing, we might always remember that Eternity from which we descend into the Earth realms, and that Grace on whose wings we flit through the halls of time and space, however briefly.

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

Leda and the Swan . by Alice B. Clagett

  • SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

Dear Ones,

This is the fourth of five videos filmed on the same day. This video has to do with the legend of Leda and the Swan, with the song The Daemon Lover, and with noospheric currents of astral rape.

I am just too chicken to say what this blog is really about, as I fear attack by a Neo-Hindu cult that specializes in mind control and astral rape. However, I have provided a clue about it in the fifth video filmed the same day … Link: “The Catch-22 in Spiritual Names,” by Alice B. Clagett, written on 8 March 2020; published on 7 December 2020 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-kWF ..

There is a Summary after the video …

VIDEO BY ALICE

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO

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

I have something to convey to you, that I have to convey in an extremely roundabout way, for my own safety and for the safety of other people as well. I hope some of you will be able to benefit from it, even though I am speaking very rotundly at the moment.

There was a story once … it was a myth … about a woman named ‘Leda’ and a swan with which she had a love affair, and by which she became pregnant, I think … the story of Leda and the Swan …

Link: “Leda and the Swan,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Leda_and_the_Swan ..

There is something about swans: They look very proud … kind of arrogant. They look very beautiful. They fly through the air. And typically they do not make women pregnant. But I suppose it is possible that a woman could think, in an erotic manner, about a swan.

So for people who have a concern about astral rape … otherwise known as psychic rape … on which I have a large section on my website … astral rape is a little like the story of Leda and the Swan, because something that feels like you as a woman are being raped or having intercourse (depending on your receptivity to the notion) flies through the air, and lands, and seems to actually be having sexual intercourse with you. So, in a way, the notion of astral rape is similar to the myth of Leda and the Swan.

There is a very ancient song about The Daemon Lover …

Video: “Andy Irvine – The Daemon Lover,” by praEdward, 30 July 2014 … https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=DvlgKeIpf18 ..

… that was, in recent years, changed into a song about a House Carpenter, with the same tune.

The story of The Daemon Lover is a lot like the story of Leda and the Swan, and also like the stories of astral rape. There is someone that flies through the air, and seems to make love to the woman, and causes her to leave her husband and her children and go off sailing across the seas … possibly in an empty boat … an empty barque … and never to see them again.

She loses touch with her family life, and in my opinion goes off into a world of the imagination because of the daemon lover.

Image: “Study for a Leda,” by Michelangelo Buonarroty, circa 1530, in Wikimedia Commons … https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Michelangelo,_studio_per_la_leda,_casa_buonarroti.jpg … public domain … COMMENT: In this painting it is as if Leda is daydreaming; this lends support to the theory that the legend of Leda and the Swan has to do with the legend of the Daemon Lover (‘The House Carpenter’) and the noospheric energies of astral rape.

Image: “Study for a Leda,” by Michelangelo Buonarroty, circa 1530, in Wikimedia Commons … https://commons.wikimedia.org/wiki/File:Michelangelo,_studio_per_la_leda,_casa_buonarroti.jpg … public domain … COMMENT: In this painting it is as if Leda is daydreaming; this lends support to the theory that the legend of Leda and the Swan has to do with the legend of the Daemon Lover (‘The House Carpenter’) and the noospheric energies of astral rape.

This daemon lover is, to my way of thinking, a type of negative astral being that can cause that stimulation of the second chakra, and at the same time, attack through mind control. In a woman, frequently that being stimulates also the heart chakra … giving her a feeling that she is in love with someone, when in fact, there is no one there at all. It can take away her life from her. It can take away her family … her husband and her children. It can turn her to the world of dreams, and remove her feet from Mother Earth.

In a man it can do the same, but not through stimulation of the heart chakra. It tends to degenerate into stimulation of the first and second chakras, and lead to the practice of homosexuality in a manner that descends into sadomasochism.

In both cases, I think, it is good to turn to those anchors of the faith that one has had in childhood … if one is lucky enough to have done so … and use those anchors to prevent the onslaught of these demons.

In addition I would like to say … for those that feel themselves to be arrogant and spiritual teachers … who feel that they are the beautiful swans of this world, and that other people are ugly ducklings compared to them …

Those people are in danger of being consorted with by those demon beings that then turn the people they meet into these paths of unrighteousness … the path of karma rather than that of dharma … if you see what I mean.

So I have a lead, from diverse traditions, on the notion of the demon lover, and I have a thought that through our traditional faiths, and the symbols of those faiths, and the sacraments of those faiths, we can overcome that loathsome fate inspired by those malevolent astral beings.

I wish you all Godspeed in avoiding them, and in returning to the ways of humankind, and the Light of God’s love and peace and joy, in this time of great Tribulation for humankind.

You know, Tribulation offers various avenues for us; it offers us a chance to grow in faith, or a chance to fall down in despair. It is up to us. If is our free will. We have these choices, moment to moment, in this Time of Tribulation.

God bless you all, and keep you safe.

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

Dear Ones,

This is a call to action regarding the religious practice of mortification of the flesh, including self-flagellation, that some Christian denominations retain as a historical tradition. In noospheric tenor, these practices tie into the denser energy streams of sadomasochistic sexual practices and snuff sex that have, of late, ransacked the noosphere of Los Angeles, especially on the weekends.

Aside from the link-in with historic practices of fleshly mortification why is it that this relatively rare nuance of sexual behavior is such a standout in the Los Angeles noosphere of late? For more, I turned to this publication …

Link: “The Psychology of Sadomasochism: An Attempt to Explain Sadism and Masochism,” by Neil Burton, M.D., posted 17 August 2014, in Psychology Today … https://www.psychologytoday.com/us/blog/hide-and-seek/201408/the-psychology-sadomasochism ..

From that I learned that many seemingly innocuous forms of behavior, such as tickling, infantilizing, and love-biting … and perhaps, I would add, taunting and bullying, as are oft found online these days … play into the darker, denser energy streams of the relatively recherché world of sadomasochism. Thus we are all, willy-nilly, for the most part unwittingly, involved in the clearing of these dense energy strands from the Los Angeles noosphere at present.

My appeal today is to those who are consciously able to choose whether they will add to these denser noospheric energies of sadomasochism. I make this appeal because, as an intuitive person, I find these energies very difficult to bear, especially on the weekends in Los Angeles, and most particularly so during times of solar storm … even geostorms as mild as that which we experienced last night …

Image: Kp Index 11 May 2019 18:30:02 UTC, by NOAA/SWPC Boulder, CO USA … public domain. One Level 5 bar spike indicates that a mild geostorm (lasting three hours or less) took place.

In order to keep our personal Body of Light (aura, or energy field) pure and bright, I feel it is important to avoid injury to the body, which is the temple of the Holy Spirit. The Spirit itself, in my sense of it, is injured by mortification of the flesh.

LET THERE BE NO RETURN TO THE KNIGHTS TEMPLAR OF OLD

It is the work of a Christian to discover the Grace of God within, or so I believe. What can be farther from that goal than the undercurrents that apparently evolved, over the centuries, in organizations such as the historic Knights Templar? Having read this no-holds barred account of that evolution …

Link: “The Dark History of the Knights Templar,” from “Knights Templar’s Saga” at theunjustmedia.com … https://www.bibliotecapleyades.net/sociopolitica/templars/knights_templars01.htm

… as well as this more tempered account …

Link: “Knights Templar,” in Wikipedia … https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Knights_TemplarMore tempered.

… I have some concerns about the renaissance of the Knights Templar tradition by newly formed groups here in Los Angeles and elsewhere in the United States.

How is it that, in ages gone by, sincere members of devout religious orders have fallen prey to emanations of self-hatred and hatred of others through organizations founded for the best of reasons?

The answer, I feel, lies in the slight affinity aroused in the body to hatred of others through the practice of self-mortification …

Link: “Flagellation: Religious Practice,” written by Geoffrey Abbott, in Encyclopaedia Britannica … https://www.britannica.com/topic/flagellation ..

Through this ‘toehold’ of hatred of the body, flows forth into the noosphere hatred in all its forms: Hatred of women, abuse of children, envy at the sexual prowess of other men; hatred of this teaching or that of one’s own church, or of those of other Christian denominations; and finally, hatred even of the Light of God within, and turning to the abomination of Satanic ritual.

WILL PLAGUE COMPEL US TO FLAGELLANT PARADES?

In the mid-13th Century, processions of self-flagellants took place in central Italy with intent to mitigate a devastating plague. In current times we face another such plague, the scourge of HIV / AIDS, which leaves those of our children who are so infected unable to produce viable offspring.

In our nation’s capital, Washington D.C., according to Centers for Disease Control statistics published in 2016, the lifetime risk of contracting HIV was 1 in 13 people …

Link: “2016 HIV Lifetime Risk Statistics from Centers for Disease Control,” by Alice B. Clagett, published on 30 March 2019 … https://wp.me/p2Rkym-c3f ..

Since 2016, no state-by-state statistics have been published. Yet the epidemic, I feel, is cresting in the congested urban areas of the United States, or will soon do so.

Until statistics are caught up, we cannot definitively know where we stand with regard to the HIV / AIDS pandemic. Meanwhile, shall we once more fall to the practice of publicly mistreating our bodies … whether in our streets, or on the silver screen?

ON PERFECTING WORKS OF CORPOREAL MERCY

The answer to the social stresses now testing the tensile strength of our democratic way of life lies not in hatred, not in acts of terrorism whether ultra right or ultra left, not in pogroms, not in vigilante justice, not in wanton waste of life, but in a learned and temperately discerning approach to the problems at hand.

Let us pay utmost respect to our bodies, the abiding temples of God’s loving kindness to us. It is this, the virtue of Christian charity … to ourselves as well as to others … that holds the answer to action in the world during this, the cusp of the HIV / AIDS pandemic.

In the Book of Matthew, Christ says …

“Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” –Matthew 6:16 (KJV, public domain)

I am put in mind of the biography of pastor Martin Rinkart, whose example I find  inspiring in these times of worldwide hardship …

The Heroic Works of Charity of German Pastor Martin Rinkart During the Great Pestilence

Martin Rinkart (23 April 1586, Eilenburg – 8 December 1649) was a pastor who ministered to his flock in Eilenburg, a walled German town, during the Thirty Years’ War, 1618-1648.

In 1637, when the town was already worn down by war, the Great Pestilence took place. At that time the town of Eilenburg had four ministers. People from the surrounding area who were suffering from epidemic and famine sought refuge in Pastor Rinkart’s town.

As the plague-ridden entered the town, the townspeople became infected. One of the town’s ministers, no doubt overcome by a sense of impending doom, fled to healthier climes. The two other ministers stood by Pastor Rinkart, who saw them buried.

In the end, Pastor Rinkart was the only pastor left in Eilenburg. He conducted services for over 4,000 people, sometimes as many as 40 or 50 a day. In May of 1637 his wife died, which must have been a grievous personal blow to him. By the end of that year, the dead were being buried in trenches, and there were no services for them.

Under the most harrowing of personal circumstances, Martin Rinkart composed this uplifting hymn of gratitude for God’s myriad acts of loving kindness, a hymn that is often sung even today …

The examples of the many great saints of our Christian faith are like a beacon lighting our way in these difficult times. Like them, let us maintain hope in the face of the trials that stand before us. Let the heartbreak of many in our community lift us to faith in God’s sweet intention towards our Souls. Insofar as we may, let us speak to the pure Spirit within, so that we may find the courage to face calamity with equanimity, and the fortitude steadfastly to practice the Christian corporal works of mercy.

Let us feed the hungry, give water to the thirsty, clothe the naked, shelter the homeless, visit the sick, visit the imprisoned, ransom those held captive. and bury the dead.

There is a passage in Matthew 25 that speaks most poignantly to this time of Ascension on Earth. This passage brilliantly limns the manner in which we may choose to address the momentous days that lie before us, through works of mercy practiced in loving remembrance of Christ …

Matthew 25:31-46 (KJV, public domain)

31 “When the Son of man shall come in his glory, and all the holy angels with him, then shall he sit upon the throne of his glory:

32 “And before him shall be gathered all nations: and he shall separate them one from another, as a shepherd divideth his sheep from the goats:

33 “And he shall set the sheep on his right hand, but the goats on the left.

34 “Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world:

35 “For I was an hungred, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in:

36 “Naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.

37 “Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink?

38 “When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee?

39 “Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?

40 “And the King shall answer and say unto them, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren, ye have done it unto me.

41 “Then shall he say also unto them on the left hand, Depart from me, ye cursed, into everlasting fire, prepared for the devil and his angels:

42 “For I was an hungred, and ye gave me no meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me no drink:

43 “I was a stranger, and ye took me not in: naked, and ye clothed me not: sick, and in prison, and ye visited me not.

44 “Then shall they also answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungred, or athirst, or a stranger, or naked, or sick, or in prison, and did not minister unto thee?

45 “Then shall he answer them, saying, Verily I say unto you, Inasmuch as ye did it not to one of the least of these, ye did it not to me.

46 “And these shall go away into everlasting punishment: but the righteous into life eternal.”

Surely none has spoken, nor likely ever will speak, more eloquently or to the point, than Christ himself has done. This passage sets us on a sure path through faith in Him, even in the face of  the most devastating hailstorm of temporal sorrow.

CONCLUSION

In these days of woe, shall we stand with Christ and act on his behalf? In truth, what we may do for the disempowered, the disadvantaged, and the disenfranchised people of Los Angeles, is what we may be privileged to do for Christ Himself in this lifetime.

It is the Body of Christ Himself to whom we minister. It is He whom we feed, whom we clothe, for whom we provide potable water, for whom we find lodging, whom we help to find a sure path after release from prison, and whom we seek to ransom from malefic entities … whether human or clothed in mists beyond our ken … who hold them prisoner.

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

  • SKY JOURNAL: RENEWAL OF THE CITY OF THE ANGELS

Dear Ones,

INTRODUCTION

Here is a Los Angeles sky journal for October through early December 2018. This includes images from Woolsey Canyon Fire of 8-21 November 2018, as well as the time before the fire, and the fire aftermath.

Since the fire, there have been an unaccustomed number of gentle rains in Los Angeles, and these have helped settle the ash from the fire and start a crop of lush new California wild oats sprouting up vibrant green from the grey Earth.

I am looking forward to what may be one of the best of Spring seasons for a crop of ‘fire follower’ flowers here in the Santa Monica Mountains …
