The Universe- The Great Way of the Spirit Explored

Posted on June 15, 2011


“…each mind/body/spirit complex shall and should and, indeed, must perceive each archetype, if you use this convenient term, in its own way. Therefore, you may see that precision is not the goal; rather the quality of general concept complex perception is the goal.”- Ra, Session 77

The Universe


Arcanum 21

BTW: The Great Way is described in session 100 as “the environment within which the mind, body, or spirit shall function.“-Ra

Way: how something is done or how it happens; the condition of things generally; a journey or passage; a course of conduct

Spirit: the vital principle or animating force within living things

 Universe: everything that exists anywhere

 Intelligent: endowed with the capacity to reason; the ability to comprehend; to understand and benefit from experience

 Energy: from the Greek – energeia, “activity, operation”, from – energos, “active, working”) is a scalar physical quantity that describes the amount of work that can be performed by a force, an attribute of objects and systems that is subject to a conservation law…[1] Mental or psychic energy or activity is the concept of a principle of activity powering the operation of the mind, soul or psyche. The idea harks back to Aristotle’s conception of actus et potentia.[2]

What is the Great Way of the Spirit?


“…although one may also see the reflection of this contact [with intelligent infinity] as well as the contact with intelligent energy which is the Universe or, as you have called it somewhat provincially, the World.”   -Ra, Session 80


It recently occurred to me that Ra often called Carla ‘the instrument’ and only now can I see how very true this concept or label is. I see that our bodies are truly an instrument played by the soul. This is not only an interesting description, but it has even more interesting implications. Modern thinking would like to suggest that we are nothing more than the contents and firings of our brain. Life happens spontaneously and without purpose. That which we call a soul is nothing more than a fantasy in old stories and has no relevance in the ‘real world’.   But if we would allow ourselves to see that hidden hand behind the brain; the dancer, the poet, the artist, the lover, the dreamer, the creator, then we would see that a perhaps more proper way to look at our body is the instrument the soul uses to create the most beautiful music in creation, the song of life. The spirit strokes and plays our heart, we are to stay grounded and in tune.

The symbolism also suggests, to me, a suggested mental configuration, that of allowing the creative, feminine, unconscious (right-brain concepts) to be the musician, and the logical, rational conscious mind to keep the instrument properly tuned and cared for. The woman is kneeling and the instrument has no method of moving on its own. This isn’t about moving, its about being in the moment. Being fully present in the now and with the actions of your life, playing sweet and beautiful music. Let the words and actions of your life be sweet music to the ears of others. Let your spirit sour. Rise above. Lift yourself up.

A Practice to produce acceleration toward the Law of One:

Exercise One. This is the most nearly centered and usable within your illusion complex. The moment contains love. That is the lesson/goal of this illusion or density. The exercise is to consciously see that love in awareness and understanding distortions. The first attempt is the cornerstone. Upon this choosing rests the remainder of the life-experience of an entity. The second seeking of love within the moment begins the addition. The third seeking empowers the second, the fourth powering or doubling the third. As with the previous type of empowerment, there will be some loss of power due to flaws within the seeking in the distortion of insincerity. However, the conscious statement of self to self of the desire to seek love is so central an act of will that, as before, the loss of power due to this friction is inconsequential.

Exercise Two. The universe is one being. When a mind/body/spirit complex views another mind/body/spirit complex, see the Creator. This is an helpful exercise.

Exercise Three. Gaze within a mirror. See the Creator.

Exercise Four. Gaze at the creation which lies about the mind/body/spirit complex of each entity. See the Creator.

The foundation or prerequisite of these exercises is a predilection towards what may be called meditation, contemplation, or prayer. With this attitude, these exercises can be processed. Without it, the data will not sink down into the roots of the tree of mind, thus enabling and ennobling the body and touching the spirit.

The galaxy and all other things of material of which you are aware are products of individualized portions of intelligent infinity. As each exploration began, it, in turn, found its focus and became co-Creator. Using intelligent infinity each portion created an universe and allowing the rhythms of free choice to flow, playing with the infinite spectrum of possibilities, each individualized portion channeled the love/light into what you might call intelligent energy, thus creating the so-called Natural Laws of any particular universe.

Each universe, in turn, individualized to a focus becoming, in turn, co-Creator and allowing further diversity, thus creating further intelligent energies regularizing or causing Natural Laws to appear in the vibrational patterns of what you would call a solar system. Thus, each solar system has its own, shall we say, local coordinate system of illusory Natural Laws. It shall be understood that any portion, no matter how small, of any density or illusory pattern contains, as in an holographic picture, the One Creator which is infinity. Thus all begins and ends in mystery.”   -Ra, Session 13

From The Pathwork Healing Series

“When the tenth chakra starts to open up the individual will begin to manifest many of the skills they have learned in all of their previous lives. These individuals will seem to excel at anything they undertake and any project they are involved with will take off from their influence. It is not that they are just good at doing everything. Rather they are tapping into previous skills learned in past lives. The barriers between the past selves are breaking down and knowledge and wisdom begins to flow through time and space.

Typically this chakra is responsible for divine creativity, synchronicity of life, the merging of the masculine and feminine within. How do these emerging skills relate to these qualities? Well it is these emerging skills and the taping of previous lives that make all these elements come about. Divine creativity is the ability to create all facets of your life in perfect harmony. When this harmony starts to manifest the individual’s life just clicks. It will seem as if this person is always in the right place at the right time. Divine energy is flowing out of the chakra and into the individual and bringing perfection into everything he or she does. And because taping into past lives does not discriminate between male or female lifetimes, the individual will begin to merge the masculine and feminine within themselves. This merging brings even more harmony into a person’s life because they are not prone to either the masculine or feminine energy or the faults that each of those polarities tends to bring up. A gender balance exists within the person and the individual is free to tap into the best that each energy polarity has to offer.”


Tom DeLiso / Hermes Trismegistus



“Consider, if you will, that the universe is infinite. This has yet to be proven or disproven, but we can assure you that there is no end to your selves, your understanding, what you would call your journey of seeking, or your perceptions of the creation.

That which is infinite cannot be many, for many-ness is a finite concept. To have infinity you must identify or define that infinity as unity; otherwise, the term does not have any referent or meaning. In an Infinite Creator there is only unity. You have seen simple examples of unity. You have seen the prism which shows all colors stemming from the sunlight. This is a simplistic example of unity.

In truth there is no right or wrong. There is no polarity for all will be, as you would say, reconciled at some point in your dance through the mind/body/spirit complex which you amuse yourself by distorting in various ways at this time. This distortion is not in any case necessary. It is chosen by each of you as an alternative to understanding the complete unity of thought which binds all things. You are not speaking of similar or somewhat like entities or things. You are every thing, every being, every emotion, every event, every situation. You are unity. You are infinity. You are love/light, light/love. You are. This is the Law of One.”– Ra, Session 1 


“Thus, the World card, very aptly, represents a successful conclusion, all aspects accounted for and taken in. Simply put, this card tells the Querent that the end to a long-term project is in sight, and that it will be accompanied by well-earned praise, celebration and success. With Saturn as its ruling planet, this card can also indicate that the Querent, now an expert in their subject, is likely to become a teacher or sought-after lecturer. And, finally, on a more mundane level, the World card indicates travel, not short business trips, but long, fantastic trips. Maybe a lecture tour, book signing, or just a trip around the world. This is a wonderful card of wholeness, perfection, satisfaction and happiness.”[3]
