Einstein, Astral Projection and Imagination

February 17, 2009

For many years the study of material science was void of any spiritual counterpart.  With the advent of quantum physics, there now seems to be an intersection where to two meet again, as they did in ancient times.

 

Naturally science and the ancient mysteries  were not always devoid of each other.  At one time they were intermingled.  Then, as science began to unveil outdated beliefs and superstitions, the mysteries and science grew in an opposite directions.  This is a point of duality and separation in human evolvement.

 

Prior to this split, knowledge about nature was derived from inspiration, intuition and visions, and then it was transmitted via initiation. 

 

When I think about how this process took place, I often see people who stand in opposition to the ancient mysteries and simply refer to them as myths. These are often strictly science-minded people.  Yet the late Albert Einstein used this ancient process of visualization where he saw himself riding on the end of a beam of light.  From this he was able to formulate his theory of light and relativity.  Think of it, one of the greatest minds of our time was no doubt involved in what mystics call “astral projection.”  It is apparent Einstein developed a synergy between material science and myth including specific skills that are taught in many mystery traditions.

 

 Ancient sages did not view myth as arbitrary or some kind of fantastic notion. Myth was developed from a necessary process; the same process gives shape to the things of the imagination. EVERYTHING BEGINS IN THE IMAGINATION. Ancient myth allowed for the senses to dramatize themselves in images and figures that were blended into an artistic painting of sensory experiences and resulted in deep inner changes and alchemical transformation.

 

Today we live in a world where myth is very different from the scientific views of the 1950’s and 60’s.  Myth has come alive again in the imagination of the scientist, physician, natural healer, alchemist, mathematician, Qabalist, computer programmer, psychic, businessperson, engineer, and the mystic.

 

These are exciting times we live in because people are quickly moving in the direction of a holistic, holographic universe.  Many of us are moving beyond duality. Like standing on the top of a large mountain, the view is better, the air is fresh and clean, and inspirations are much more vivid.  This means manifestation is much more certain in the life of anyone willing to weave a tapestry between what we can see and the invisible.

 

“Universe, hear my plea.  Earth, open.  Let the waters open for me.  Trees, do not tremble.  Let the heavens open and the winds be silent!  Let all my faculties celebrate in me the ALL and ONE! “

 

 The above quote is from the hymn of the sons of Hermes.  Imagine if you could live your life outside of the duality of the illusionary material world?  What could you create?  What could you be?  Who would you be?  This is a world beyond limitations, a world beyond the confines of a calculator; this is a world of imagination inspired by Light.

 

Hold on there’s more.  I want to make a bold statement that I will talk about future blogs.  You are co-creator with the ONE.  This is the most ancient of teachings.  This places the responsibility square on your shoulders and most of us don’t like it there, because its easier to cast blame on other.  There is no room for this limited kind of thinking in Spiritual and Abundance Alchemy.  We can unite the material with the spiritual, the science of tomorrow with the myths of the past; we can be whole.  We can live the holistic life that every human being is called to live. I would like to end this blog with an important quote; I hope it inspires you as much as it does me:

 

“Rise up above every height; descend deeper than any depth; concentrate into thyself all the sensations of created things of Water, Fire, Dry, and Wet. Think of finding yourself simultaneously everywhere, in the earth, sea or sky; think of having never been born, of still being an embryo: young and old, dead and beyond death.  Embrace everything at the same time: all time, places, things, qualities, and quantities.”
