I believe the only thing that is out of its harmonic nature, is man. I dont think planets and moons need perfect circular orbits or that this world of
flesh is meant to be perfect, in mans terms of what perfect is. Who is to say that all is not perfect, it what is needed, in the expression of what
is, the IAM?
I think the closest understanding we can come to understanding why things are like they are...is due to what some call the 'braking of the vessels'.
When something, being, expresses of itself...a push outwardly and a stiring inwardly occurs. To be, to constantly and consistenly be being (God, IAM,
what ever you wish to call Thee) there must be expression. To be is to express. To express is to manifest, create, emanate...the self. A braking of
the vessels then occurs...everything that comes through the expression is a part of a greater whole of expression, everything starts to seem seperate,
seperation causes many facets, then onwardly those vessels brake, express, while being, then onward and onward. The further of the braking...the less
the facets know the self, the one that expressed, the one that they are of, the IAM then finds its way, see's its true nature through concious
facets, through things/expressions/facets, like us. No mistakes, for the whole of the design is perfect for what is needed to be and become. No shame
we should carry, for being here now, we should not feel mankind is here through any wrongs or errors.
very good question. and very appropriate, when we think about the mythologies that mankind has built up over the years.
right now i'm reading "the mystical qabalah" by Dion Fortune, and it is a study of the Qabalistic "Tree Of Life", a perfect example of the
"breaking of the vessels".
The Tree of Life is an illustration of all divine creation, from the whole and infinite I AM to the tiny and measly human. It has at it's top, the
sphere of Kether (I AM in Hebrew), which is The One, the creator. it shares no other space with anything but itself. then the energy of kether
multiplies itself in order to make Chokmah and Binah, Wisdom and Understanding. Chokmah and Binah also represent positive and negative, male and
female, yin and yang, kinetic energy and potential energy.
since the infinite energy of Kether divides itself, it must therefore compartmentalize part of it's consciousness in order to recognize part of
itself as separate. we have to inherently believe that in order for two things to be different from each other, they must not be the same. Kether
realizes that in order to further evolve it's knowing of all that is possible, it must temporarily hypnotize part of itself into believing in
separation. (David Wilcock makes the point that Time is what hypnotizes us)
And this is where man has "fallen". At the top of the Tree of life is Kether, the One, the I AM. as kether's energy goes down the tree it is
immediately divided, and then balanced again (In Daath), further divided, balanced, divided, balanced, then comes the manifestation of the physical
world, all the way at the bottom of creation.
the lowest sphere, Malkuth or the Kingdom, is Earth. You can liken consciousness in a state of "grace" as an all-knowing consciousness, a
consciousness that knows all of creation to be a whole and can be one. this "state of grace" is the sphere of Kether, the I AM, the undivided.
human consciousness has "fallen from grace" in the sense that we are forced into thinking in opposites, we've had a "veil of forgetting" that
hypnotizes us into believing we are separate from everything else that is. This is because our sphere falls far behind the "first priorities" of
creation. The great I AM had to sort out a whole lot of different spheres of creation before manifesting the physical world, one of these being the
sense of division.
and since the earth is our mother, as long as we inhabit physical bodies incarnate on Earth ... passing through time ... we are hypnotized into
i could go on and on about this subject, and it's interesting to think about our "separated" relationship to all other spheres of creation and
forms of "life". (Like plants and animals, who, despite the fact that they incarnate on Earth, do not seem to be convinced that they are separate
from the Earth) ((maybe it's because humans have a bicameral brain? i'm too tired to think about this but it makes me think of "the origin of
consciousness in the breakdown of the bicameral mind" by Julian Jaynes.)) ... anyway there's a plethora of knowledge like this imbued in the Tree
of Life, i'd recommend the work by Dion Fortune to anyone.
