CORPOREAL REALM VERSUS SPIRIT
It’s a big question, whether we should throw in our lot with our physical forms, our physical wealth, our physical contentment … or whether, upon responsibly providing for these, we should then turn to the treasures of spirit.
Ascension, if we accept that concept, would mean many changes in the materialistic value system. The keys to the Kingdom of Heaven, what does that term mean? To me, it means looking first to Spirit, as Christ said, and secondly to physical concerns. Both Matthew and Luke speak of this, in the scriptures at the end of this blog.
WILL WE RETAIN PHYSICAL FORM? WILL WE NEED MONEY?
So basically, for me, the issues the come up around Ascension are like this: Will I still have my physical body? A concomitant issue being: Will I still need money to get by?
I was listening to a talk by Sandra Walter … https://sandrawalter.com/ … yesterday, on Lauren Galey’s excellent web conference site … http://www.acoustichealth.com/ ..
Sandra Walter feels that our physical bodies, during the Ascension process … what is known in Christian texts as the Second Coming … will be transformed. We will not lose them; we will not ‘drop form’. But rather our physical bodies will be transformed through Christ consciousness. I feel that way too.
Sandra Walter also mentioned yesterday that the transformation to Christ consciousness is a matter of personal choice, of free will. Each of us can choose whether to participate or not. I feel that way too.
So for some of us, the third dimensional physical reality, the experience of dense form, may be so compelling that we choose not to participate in the Second Coming. What then? I have my own thoughts on this …
THE EARTH EXPERIMENT AS A WAY TO SPEED SOUL EVOLUTION
Some time ago, I read in the Law of One … https://www.lawofone.info/ … that the Earth experiment was designed by the Creator to speed Soul evolution through the experience of duality. The notion being that intense suffering would allow many Soul choices, moment to moment. That Soul wisdom might be more quickly accumulated in this way.
I like this explanation very well, as it backs up the neutral mind stance of those who conveyed the Law of One to humankind. What is the Law of One, anyway, but an expression of the value of being able to experience free will? The value of making choices, whether they be toward the Dark or toward the Light?
NEUTRAL MIND IS A GREAT BLESSING IN THE REALM OF DUALITY, ESPECIALLY DURING THE ASCENSION PROCESS
And so, in passage after passage, I see in the Law of One an admirably neutral attitude toward the entire play of Lila, the illusion of Duality taking place on Earth. And within that neutrality, a very light sense of humor towards the many choices being made and the many paths being trod, both by humans and by many nonhuman forms of astral beings. Keeping in mind that beings astral negative were needed by the Creator in order to manifest this duality play. In that sense, one can appreciate their presence here.
In the same way, with a supremely neutral mind, one can appreciate the human choices being made on Earth today … the free will choice not to participate in Ascension. The choice to continue to participate in Duality, in some alternate timeline, or perhaps on another world, in another galaxy altogether. Regardless of the geography, we can be sure that the Creator will provide an illusion to suit the Soul needs of those who continue to choose Duality.
And so, there is no need to be concerned about the choices humankind are making. It may in fact be that the one we love most dearly in Earthly form may choose not to ascend, and we ourselves may choose Ascension. This would be, would it not, the true test of neutral mind?
I myself look forward, more than anything else, to developing that sense of neutral mind, that lighthearted humor that aligns with God and says: Anything for you, my children! Anything you desire, I will make it so!
What depth of calm in that, what spiritual maturity, what dispassionate love, what sweet regard!
In love, light and joy,

MATTHEW 6 (KJV, public domain)
Treasures in Heaven
19 “Lay not up for yourselves treasures upon earth, where moth and rust doth corrupt, and where thieves break through and steal: 20 But lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust doth corrupt, and where thieves do not break through nor steal: 21 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.”
The Lamp of the Body
22 “The light of the body is the eye: if therefore thine eye be single, thy whole body shall be full of light. 23 But if thine eye be evil, thy whole body shall be full of darkness. If therefore the light that is in thee be darkness, how great is that darkness!
24 “No man can serve two masters: for either he will hate the one, and love the other; or else he will hold to the one, and despise the other. Ye cannot serve God and mammon.”
Do Not Worry
25 “Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink; nor yet for your body, what ye shall put on. Is not the life more than meat, and the body than raiment? 26 Behold the fowls of the air: for they sow not, neither do they reap, nor gather into barns; yet your heavenly Father feedeth them. Are ye not much better than they? 27 Which of you by taking thought can add one cubit unto his stature? 28 And why take ye thought for raiment? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow; they toil not, neither do they spin: 29 “And yet I say unto you, That even Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 30 “Wherefore, if God so clothe the grass of the field, which to day is, and to morrow is cast into the oven, shall he not much more clothe you, O ye of little faith? 31 Therefore take no thought, saying, What shall we eat? or, What shall we drink? or, Wherewithal shall we be clothed? 32 (For after all these things do the Gentiles seek:) for your heavenly Father knoweth that ye have need of all these things. 33 But seek ye first the kingdom of God, and his righteousness; and all these things shall be added unto you.”
34 “Take therefore no thought for the morrow: for the morrow shall take thought for the things of itself. Sufficient unto the day is the evil thereof.”
MATTHEW 13 (KJV, public domain)
The Parables of the Treasure and Pearl
44 “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto treasure hid in a field; the which when a man hath found, he hideth, and for joy thereof goeth and selleth all that he hath, and buyeth that field.
45 “Again, the kingdom of heaven is like unto a merchant man, seeking goodly pearls: 46 Who, when he had found one pearl of great price, went and sold all that he had, and bought it.”
LUKE 12 (KJV, public domain)
The Parable of the Rich Fool
13 “And one of the company said unto him, Master, speak to my brother, that he divide the inheritance with me. 14 And he said unto him, Man, who made me a judge or a divider over you? 15 And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man’s life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth. 16 And he spake a parable unto them, saying, The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully: 17 And he thought within himself, saying, What shall I do, because I have no room where to bestow my fruits? 18 And he said, This will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods. 19 And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry. 20 But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided? 21 So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God.”
Do Not Worry
22 “And he said unto his disciples, Therefore I say unto you, Take no thought for your life, what ye shall eat; neither for the body, what ye shall put on. 23 The life is more than meat, and the body is more than raiment. 24 Consider the ravens: for they neither sow nor reap; which neither have storehouse nor barn; and God feedeth them: how much more are ye better than the fowls? 25 And which of you with taking thought can add to his stature one cubit? 26 If ye then be not able to do that thing which is least, why take ye thought for the rest? 27 Consider the lilies how they grow: they toil not, they spin not; and yet I say unto you, that Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed like one of these. 28 If then God so clothe the grass, which is to day in the field, and to morrow is cast into the oven; how much more will he clothe you, O ye of little faith? 29 And seek not ye what ye shall eat, or what ye shall drink, neither be ye of doubtful mind. 30 For all these things do the nations of the world seek after: and your Father knoweth that ye have need of these things. 31 But rather seek ye the kingdom of God; and all these things shall be added unto you. 32 Fear not, little flock; for it is your Father’s good pleasure to give you the kingdom.
33 “Sell that ye have, and give alms; provide yourselves bags which wax not old, a treasure in the heavens that faileth not, where no thief approacheth, neither moth corrupteth. 34 For where your treasure is, there will your heart be also.”
In love, light and joy,
