This video is about the transcendent and immanent (i.e., omnipresent) qualities of God, and also about ‘magical’ notions of omnipresence or ubiquity ascribed to gurus, spiritual teachers, and Ascended Masters in the third and fourth dimensions, the realms of duality ….

SUMMARY OF THE VIDEO
On the Book “Meeting Jesus Again for the First Time,” by Marcus J. Borg
Hello, Dear Ones, It’s Alice; I Am of the Stars, and I am sitting in a beautiful Christian retreat center that I know about in the Los Angeles area. I was reading a book in their library called “Meeting Jesus Again for the First Time,” by Marcus J. Borg, published in 1994. I read the first part of it, because I love philosophical discussion, and I found this person very interesting to read.
On the Omnipresent and Transcendent Qualities of God
I’d just like to talk a little about one passage that I read on page 6 of the book. This passage has to do with the question of what he calls the omnipresence and’transcendence of God. That is one way of expressing it. In his youth he was puzzling over the question Is God up in heaven, or is God everywhere?
- If God were everywhere, then that would be that God is omnipresent.
- If God were up in heaven, then that would be transcendence … higher than, or transcending, all that we see.
He was a young person when he started thinking about this, and he had some trouble trying to figure it out. What he began to think was that God was up in heaven, but God was capable of being anywhere, if He wanted to be.
The Heresy of God Popping in, Once in a While
So that was one of his first decisions that he made. He apparently went past that, after that, and he came to the conclusion that this way of thinking … that God is up in heaven, but capable of being anywhere if He wants to be … like with, for instance, if someone were praying very hard and very fervently to be in the presence of God, then God could jump down from heaven and be with that person anytime He wanted to.
Obsession Compared to Channeling
On Obsession of People by People. But Marcus Borg says that this reduces the notion of God’s omnipresence to a magical notion of his potential ability to be anywhere. (I’m paraphrasing so as not to infringe on copyright.) This idea that some people have the notion that omnipresence has to do with jumping from the mind of one person to that of the next person, is something I have discussed in prior blogs, in terms of ‘flowing through’ or ‘passing through’ people, or temporarily ‘obsessing’ people.
Flowing through a person’s energy field, if it, in fact, takes place through a spiritual teacher or guru, a spiritually elevated person in physical form, then it involves mixing of astral matter between the guru or spiritual teacher who is in form, and the student … or whoever it is that he is temporarily ‘obsessing’.
On Channeling. We call that ‘channeling’ too. It’s ‘channeling’ if the presence that is flowing through us has extremely pure astral energy. Not even astral, but higher than astral. The Angel Realm, for instance, has the kind of energy that flows through a person and purifies and uplifts everything.
Omipresence as ‘Jumping into’ People
In the days, prior to the 2012 Shift, when the Angel Realm was not as available to us as it is today, people would rely on gurus and spiritual teachers who would attempt this omnipresent feat, which Marcus Borg calls ‘magic potentiality’ to be wherever … in the instance I am discussing, this might be construed as a magic potentiality to jump into people.
I know nobody’s been talking about this, because in the past, people have considered this ‘jumping in’ was ubiquity or omnipresence. But what I am saying right now is that, for those who are within the slipstream of time and space, in the third or fourth dimension … not as high as the fifth dimension or Christ consciousness … for those who are less than Christ consciousness in their Awareness … then this ‘slipping into’ people really does not represent omnipresence or ubiquity.
Karmic Implications of ‘Jumping into’ People
Instead, it represents a mixing, on the astral plane, of both the good and the bad energy, the light and the dark energy, of both people. Even if it is an Ascended Master in the third or fourth dimension, nevertheless, in order for that person to manifest in this reality, he will have dark tangles in his (or her) body of Light. That is a prerequisite for being in the third dimension, for being born. Because that is what the nature of this reality is here.
So when the spiritual teacher, the guru, or the Ascended Master in form, comes through the energy field, through the central vertical power current of a person, there is a mixing of the samskaras … of the tangles of the etheric net … of both people.
The spiritual teacher, the guru, or the Ascended Master goes back out of the experience adulterated with the samskaras of the student (in the Eastern tradition, they say that he ‘takes on the karma’ of his student) or the person he is ‘obsessing’. The student emerges from the experience with the tangles and samskaras of the person that he looks up to.
On the Inadvisability of Worshiping People Who Manifest Magical Ubiquity in the Dual Realms
That was my reasoning on this topic, and then I saw Marcus Borg’s quote regarding the ‘magical potentiality’ to be anywhere. Is it ubiquity? Is it omnipresence?
On Magic. The answer is No, because if involves a ‘magical’ quality.
- Now magic is a quality of the subconscious and unconscious mind.
- Magic involves lack of Awareness; lack of understanding of what is going on.
On Maintaining Our Auric Integrity. If we knew what is going on, we would never mix our energy field with that of another grounded being. We would attempt to maintain our own auric or energy field intact, and to have those kinds of interactions only with our celestial Ascension teams, which have the kind of energy that can purify our energy field and free (‘liberate’) us from karmas.
But because of this magic quality of the type of ‘ubiquity’ or ‘omnipresence’ that is practiced on Earth, people do not realize what is really going on. They frequently do not realize the adulteration of the astral matter that is taking place between two people that practice this.
Before Whom Ought We Bow Down?
Further, I would like to say that it is inappropriate to worship or bow down to a person who professes to have this kind of omnipresence or ubiquity. It is inappropriate to do so. Let us reserve our adoration for God, and only God. For the very Highest. For the Source of all that is. That way we can never go wrong about it. And in that way, in fact, we may achieve a thorough understanding, an innate understanding, of these qualities of God, of transcendence and immanence. We will know, because we will experience within ourselves, and beyond ourselves in all creation, the living presence of God’s love and Light and joy.
So that is it for this passage. I would like to recommend this book for your reading …

P.S. I have included this blog in the categories Hinduism and Neo-Hinduism – Neo-Vedanta, as the Indian Saint the Vallalar, and Sri Aurobindo of Integral Yoga are often connected to the concepts of omnipresence, omniscience, and omnipotence, and to the terms used by ‘the Vallalar’ and/or Sri Aurobindo: ‘gracelight’ … ‘grace light’ … ‘divine light’ ..
