"The idea once held, that the invisible elements surrounding and interpenetrating the earth were peopled with living, intelligent beings, may seem ridiculous to the prosaic mind of today. This doctrine, however, has found favor with some of the greatest intellects the world. The sylphs of Facius Cardan, the philosopher of Milan; the salamander seen by Benvenuto Cellini; the pan of St. Anthony; and le petit homme rouge (the little red man, or gnome) of Napoleon Bonaparte have found their places in the pages of history ...Not so very long ago the greatest minds of the world believed in the existence of fairies, and it is still an open question as to whether Plato, Socrates, and Iamblichus were wrong when they avowed their reality.
have often seen machine elf-type beings in my '___' trips and have a tremendous deal of curiosity about exactly what/who they are and what they might be trying to show us. I have just finished reading ‘Astral Plane: Its scenery, inhabitants and phenomena’ by C.W. Leadbeater (an early 20th century theosophist) and I was fascinated to find a description that for me had significant similarities to what I have experienced of the elves and what a lot of Terrence Mckenna’s descriptions of them along with posts on the nexus seem to say. Here are key excerpts from the book: These nature-spirits are known in popular language by many names – fairies, pixies, elves, trolls, goblins, etc. – some of these titles being only applied to one variety, and others indiscriminately to all.... Their forms are many and various, but most frequently human in shape and somewhat diminutive in size......Under ordinary conditions they are not visible to physical sight at all, but they have the power of making themselves so by materialization when they wish to be seen... There are an immense number of subdivisions or races among them, and individuals differ in intelligence and disposition precisely as human beings do.... instances are not wanting in which nature-spirits have as it were made friends with human beings and offered them such assistance as lay in their power. This helpful attitude however is comparatively rare, and in most cases when they come into contact with man they either show indifference or dislike, or else take an impish delight in deceiving him and playing childish tricks upon him.... practical joking and silly though usually good-natured horse-play... They are greatly assisted in their tricks by the wonderful power they possess of casting a glamour over those who yield themselves to their influence, so that victims for the time see and hear only what these fairies impress upon them, exactly as the mesmerised subject sees, hears, feels, and believes whatever the magnetizer wishes.....
"The salamanders are as varied in their grouping and arrangement as either the undines or the gnomes. There are many families of them, differing in appearance, size, and dignity. Sometimes the salamanders were visible as small balls of light. Paracelsus says: "Salamanders have been seen in the shapes of fiery balls, or tongues of fire, running over the fields or peering in houses." (Philosophia Occulta, translated by Franz Hartmann.)
We humans can corrupt most systems but hierarchy exists in everything in nature. It is a natural order that creates the system and is incorruptible we don't have any say.
What dictates our ascension? .. It happens all the time with individuals, It is the level of our own awareness. Our awareness has evolved over millions of years along with our physiology. Some make the journey through the human kingdom fairly rapidly, the rest of us are lumbering on but everyone gets to ascend eventually.
There is periodic harvesting when fruit becomes ripe and we become another kind of being, but for the majority, we ascent together as a group. Some are left behind for the next harvest.
Humans are very valuable to the wholeness of this system but we are by no means any better or more important than the thousands of other sentient species that live alongside us albeit in another state of matter.
Nobody judges you, you are your own judge and when you are out of the flesh your judgment is perfect and your errors are transparent, everything and every being loves you, everyone of us is on a mission and we arrive and depart in clans of humans who have shared countless lives together.
It really sucks that this knowledge has to be hidden from us by necessity. It will all soon become crystal clear. We don't really learn a great deal in the next world. The dimension beyond Maya is as mysterious to its occupants, as the afterlife is to us.
How do we pass through to Maya?
Information overload, Kenny. Please be more detailed with the content you provide, as I do find it intriguing. However, I’m having a hard time following some of (the briskly rushed over) statements you’ve made.
