Something truly extraordinary is currently in the process of happening on Planet Earth. The accumulating evidence has now reached a point where it is overwhelmingly convincing and can no longer be ignored.
Because they are without precedent in our experience, however, it is not easy for us to recognize the symptoms of what is occurring or to comprehend their significance.
Since the first atomic explosions in 1945, millions of UFO sightings and thousands of extraterrestrial contacts have occurred throughout the world, in spite of the all-out efforts which our governments have made for over 50 years to cover up the facts.
Since 1972, thousands of crop circles have mysteriously manifested all over the planet, utilizing sacred geometry to convey symbolic messages which are obviously of superhuman origin.
Also since 1972, increasing numbers of extraordinary children with superpsychic abilities have been born throughout the world, and scientific research at the UCLA Medical Center has recently succeeded in establishing the fact that the human race is currently in the process of mutating into a superhuman race which is immune to all forms of disease as a consequence of having DNA that produces 24 active codons of messenger RNA rather than only 20.
Like pieces of a jig-saw puzzle which are slowly coming together to give us a preview of the future, these extraordinary developments make it absolutely clear that something truly momentous is gradually unfolding before our very eyes. The only question is: what does it all mean?
There is reason to believe that we are now approaching the pivotal point of a 25-year process of planetary ascension which began with Harmonic Convergence in 1987 and will be completed in 2012. What is more, there is reason to believe that this planetary ascension process is specifically designed to serve as our ultimate initiation process, the implication being that humanity is now in the midst of final examination prior to graduation. (See my article, "Planetary Ascension Confirmed", which reviews the origin of this theory and presents further empirical evidence that corroborates this way of understanding what is presently occurring.) On the basis of this theory, I would now like to propose a specific hypothesis for the practical purpose of helping us to cope with some of the more immediate consequences of this cosmic event.
I shall begin with the general hypothesis that our third-dimensional planet is currently undergoing a process of ascension into a fourth-dimensional planet within a multidimensional universe characterized by the descension and ascension of consciousness (descension being the process whereby consciousness contracts as frequency decreases and ascension being the process whereby consciousness expands as frequency increases).
If this is true, then from an empirical point of view, what it means is that our third-dimensional planet is currently in the process of dying at the same time that our fourth-dimensional planet is being born. Both processes are occurring simultaneously because, in reality, they are simply two different aspects of the same transformative process. Hence, we may experience this process either as a dying or as a birthing, depending on whether we are looking at it from a third-dimensional perspective or from a fourth-dimensional perspective.
My specific hypothesis is that, when we choose to be in our hearts (feeling positive feelings of love, gratitude, enthusiasm, and joy) we are tuning into the fourth dimension of consciousness where the birthing of our fourth-dimensional planet which is now occurring can be directly experienced; when we choose to be in our minds (thinking logical thoughts that define, distinguish, differentiate, and separate) we are tuning into the third dimension of consciousness where the dying of our third-dimensional universe which is now occurring can be directly experienced; and when we choose to be in judgment (experiencing negative judgmental emotions of fear, anger, grievance, guilt, and depression) we are unwittingly imprisoning our minds in the second dimension of consciousness, thereby giving ourselves no alternative but to experience the dying of our third-dimensional planet.
This hypothesis is based on the metaphysical premise that our physical bodies represent the first dimension of consciousness (which corresponds to the first chakra that is located at the base of the spine), our emotional bodies represent the second dimension of consciousness (which corresponds to the second chakra that is located just below the navel), our mental bodies represent the third dimension of consciousness (which corresponds to the third chakra that is located in the solar plexus), and our causal bodies represent the fourth dimension of consciousness (which corresponds to the fourth chakra that is located in the vicinity of the heart). (See my article, "The Evolution of Consciousness," for a more comprehensive exposition of this metaphysical premise.)
Stated more simply, my specific hypothesis is that each of us has a choice as to how we are going to experience this planetary ascension process, which is now approaching pivotal point. And it only remains to add that our physical bodies will always give us an accurate reflection of the choices which we are making. Thus, for example, if someone has a physical body which appears to be dying, it could be an indication that they have unwittingly been choosing to keep their attention focused in the second or third dimension of consciousness and are consequently resonating to the dying of our third-dimensional planet.
From this it follows that we would be wise to keep our attention focused in the fourth dimension of consciousness rather than allowing our attention to remain focused in the first, second, or third dimensions of consciousness. This can be done by following our heartsí desires, living joyfully in the continuous present, communing with nature, falling in love with the Source of our being, and cultivating an attitude of gratitude by regarding everything that occurs in our lives as an opportunity to gather wisdom from experience through the process of learning and growing. Peace of mind, unity consciousness, and a profound sense of wellbeing are the natural rewards for doing so.
I therefore recommend that we regard our present situation as being analogous to the process of switching a television set from one channel to another and that you learn how to switch your consciousness from channels 2 and 3 to channel 4, while occasionally tuning into channel 1 from time to time for the purpose of monitoring the reflections that your physical body is giving you in order to let you know how you are doing.
If you have strong attachments to your physical possessions, I recommend that you relax your attachments. And if you have unwittingly imprisoned yourself with judgments (arising from the negative judgmental emotions of fear, anger, grievance, guilt, and depression), I recommend that you give top priority to the task of liberating yourself from your mental prisons by choosing to release all of your judgments through the practice of unconditional forgiveness.
If your work requires you to spend time in your mind for the purpose of focused thinking, I recommend that you do so for not more than one hour at a time before pausing to shift out of your mind into your heart for at least half an hour of relaxation and meditation. As we approach the pivotal point of this planetary ascension process and the energies become increasingly intense, I further recommend that you spend no more than three hours per day in your mind engaged in concentrated thinking.
Needless to say, if you intend to survive this challenging time of crisis, you will want to minimize your exposure to polluted air, contaminated water, junk food, red meat, caffeine, sugar, alcohol, tobacco, drugs, pornography, discordant music, and the wide variety of negative influences that are currently being transmitted to the public through the controlled media. In order to help your body cope with the intensifying energies, I also recommend that you eat less solid food, drink more pure water, do frequent stretching exercises and deep-breathing exercises, walk at least one mile every day, and get plenty of rest. I will even go so far as to suggest that you think of yourself as being like an Olympic athlete preparing for a major event.
I predict that, as we approach the pivotal point of this planetary ascension process, the fourth dimension of consciousness will remain harmonious and peaceful while the third dimension of consciousness becomes increasingly discordant and confusing, the second dimension of consciousness becomes increasingly traumatic and chaotic, and the first dimension of consciousness provides us with a physical reflection of where we are choosing to focus our attention.
What is more, I predict that, as collective frustration and anger escalate into rage manifesting as violence and as collective anxiety and fear escalate into terror manifesting as panic, it will become increasingly clear for all to see that the mind without the heart is a prescription for disaster and that humanity without spirituality is nothing less than a prescription for insanity.
If you are inclined to be governed by fear and are operating under the illusion that you are a separate person, this is a sure sign that you are living in your mind, experiencing separation consciousness in the second and third dimensions.
If you are in love with your Source and know that you are an integral part of One Universal Being, this is a sure sign that you are living in your heart, experiencing unity consciousness in the fourth dimension.
As I have explained elsewhere, shifting out of the third-dimensional consciousness of your mind into the fourth-dimensional consciousness of your heart is essentially a process of learning how to place your masculine principle in the service of your feminine principle. (For further information about how to do this, see "The Book of Choices: Keys to Enlightenment".)
The key point to remember is that it is all a matter of choice. Whereas those who choose to be in their minds will have an increasingly discordant experience as we approach the pivotal point of this planetary ascension process, those who choose to be in their hearts will have a relatively harmonious experience.
What is your choice?
ADDENDUM (2000): THREE KEYS TO ASCENSION
1. Release all external attachments, and align to the internal Source of your being.
2. Release all judgmental emotions, and practice unconditional forgiving love in every situation that arises.
3. Release the past, live in the continuous present, and trust the process.
ADDENDUM (2001): THREE KEYS TO MASTERY
1. Say yes rather than no to God.
2. Do not be deceived by the ego illusion that you are a helpless creature who appears to be the victim of circumstance.
3. Accept the reality that you are in fact the powerful creator of your experiences with every choice you make, and realize that how we experience the events in our lives is determined, not so much by what happens, as by how we choose to respond to what happens.
ADDENDUM (2002): SECURITY VERSUS GROWTH
Life in this polarized world of labyrinthic illusion is essentially a process of gathering wisdom by first making choices and then experiencing the internal as well as the external consequences of our choices.
Experience shows that one of the most important choices we can ever make is the choice as to whether we are going to put our growth before our security or whether we are going to put our security before our growth. Whereas those who choose to make growth their first priority tend to develop love-based personalities and open minds with a creative orientation to life, those who choose to make security their first priority tend to develop fear-based personalities and closed minds with a reactive orientation to life.
If you are someone who has developed a love-based personality and an open mind with a creative orientation to life because you have made the empowering choice to put your growth before your security, I congratulate you on your courage.
If, on the other hand, you are someone who has developed a fear-based personality and a closed mind with a reactive orientation to life because you have made the disempowering choice to put your security before your growth, then I invite you to consider the possibility of reorienting your life by making a more empowering choice.
The important thing to realize is that wisdom can be gathered from our unwise choices as well as from our wise choices once we have made the empowering decision to learn and grow from every experience.
