A Stately Alignment (response)

by James Cottrell

I am a new member and look forward to learning and enjoying the societies newsletters and venues over the coming months.

I felt an urge to reply to an article I read in the June issue (‘A Stately Alignment’) as it struck a chord with me and would like to offer it for publication.  Obviously comments to this by readers would be interesting.  I am not an expert in this field but have acknowledged this explanation to be a truth.

I would like to reply to Leslie Marr questions of:-

What does the saying “As above so below” mean? “Thy will be done on earth as it is in heaven”?  Where is heaven”?

My knowledge/understanding of the questions are simply:-

“As above so below” means that “above” refers to the GOD energy or the Universal energy which is all around us and which vibrates to the energy of pure love.
“Below” means the physical materialistic, the Earth plane which our bodies occupy.  Literally, a higher frequency band and a lower frequency band of vibrations.

As human beings, our purpose is to strive to reach the “Above” frequency band through the lessons we learn whilst in our present incarnation on this Earth plane.
This we achieve by becoming less fearful, doubtful and judgmental in our day to day thoughts.  Replacing these negative thoughts with positive thoughts of humility and non-judgmental loving thoughts for our fellow humans.  This is achieved over time, whilst becoming more aware of our 6th sense.  It may take many lifetimes to attain this level of awareness through eventual realisation.

If “On earth” or “below” we choose to remain in fear and doubt then we shall be stuck in the lower frequency band of negativity and not progress to the “Above”.
“Thy will be done” means achieving GOD’s will, a state of happiness which is unconditional love.  It is having trust in the Universal energy, the life force which drives each human being via its centre core, THE SOUL.  “Ask and it shall be given” is also a part of this formula.

“Where is heaven”?  Heaven is right here on earth, it is what each human being perceives it to be via the thoughts they choose to think.  “As a man thinks so shall he become”.  The soul of each human being is pure love, as you will observe in a new born baby. If each adult human being could reach and understand its souls purpose, then we would all be in heaven.

The above and below parts are all part of the whole the same as we are all part of the whole but I feel it cannot easily be explained away by saying that it is positive and negative, it is more complex than that.

If anyone wants to follow this further then I can recommend the following readings.

Gary Zukav “The seat of the Soul”

David Ash “The new science of spirit”

This will go someway to explain energies, waves, vortex energies, quantum theory, thought, evolution and reincarnation.
As in dowsing, understanding the energies involved is complex as is the questions about our own existence and the energies that subtly shape and mould our life.

I conclude with a quote by Stephen Hawking:

“If we do discover a complete theory, it should in time be understandable in broad principle by everyone not just a few scientists.  Then we should all, philosophers, scientists and ordinary people be able to take part in the discussion of the question why it is that we and the universe exist.  If we find that answer to that it would be the ultimate triumph of human reason for then we would know the mind of GOD”.
