spirit comes the light

my talk is entitled “From Spirit Comes The Light” and I will begin with a
short and brief definition.
word “Spirit” possesses many meanings. For
example, “Spirit” can be used to mean an individual discarnate entity,
someone who has made his transition and passed on to the next dimension of life.
It can also mean an incarnate entity, someone now living on earth.
Or, “Spirit,” can be defined as a form of “esprit de Corps” which
radiates from an individual or a group of individuals.
Something very powerful – yet also very subtle.
Something unseen, yet, having an effect upon people, and even on
for the purpose of this Chapel talk, let us agree that by the word “Spirit”
we mean an animating principle of life. Let
us agree that this animating principle of life has the following characteristics:
is Divine in origin.
is present in every form of life.
emanates from the Great Cosmic God Head, himself.
pervades everything that exists everywhere in the universe.
permeates tiny insignificant Particles of matter.
let us agree that, in terms of illumination, the light that comes from
“Spirit” flows through every situation in which you are involved, either in
the company of others or by yourself.
Now, moving on from this short and brief definition, as to what is to be understood by the word: “Spirit,” I will give you a point of reference. Science now tells us “energy comes from motion, and that motion comes from energy.” This can be explained as follows. As many of you already know, there are two types, or forms, of energy: Static and restless energy, or negative and positive energies. When the energies of positive and negative qualities meet, restlessness is created. The end result of restlessness is motion, which produces energy once again.
may seem or appear to have little or nothing to do with the principles of Spirit
and Light at the moment; yet, in certain situations, the vitality we manifest is
the result of negative and positive qualities or conditions that take us to a
stage in our lives in which we would soon lose all appreciation of
“spirit’s” Divine Light.
best instruction in your life and development will come directly from the Cosmic
“Spirit” revelations. When this
happens a light is turned on and like magic a veil is lifted from any given
painful or stressful situation. Even
when the result is a guilty conscience, when the act never becomes known and we
do not have to acknowledge it, we still feel the damage to our personal
integrity and struggle growing out of it.
it were not for light, we would not have any appreciation or comprehension of
what constitutes darkness. We would
be so accustomed to the absence of Light, so accustomed to what we now call
darkness, that we could not call it by any name at all that would suggest a
contrast in terms of light. We would
simply call it the natural condition. This
is what happens when we get used to a situation that is malefic in nature, a
situation that is dangerous to any form of life, a situation that is hazardous
to society, or a condition in our lives that is not conducive to good health; be
that moral, legal, spiritual, or physical health.
These are the patterns in our lives that create the condition of apathy.
In this condition we loose track of where the light is coming from and
hence, are unable to prioritize the significant events of our lives.
looking back to a time when this light energy of Spirit was put into motion, in
my own life, I think of my birthday. I
think of what took place on that day. Perhaps
you already know this, but it is certainly true that the force of Spirit, in its
totality, is incomprehensible to our finite minds.
But to help me have at least a wisp of partial knowledge of what had
taken place that day, the Spirit force of Divine Light brought me clarity and
so, Dearest Friends, at the moment I wrote the words of the event that follows,
only a few hours had passed since I had become one terrestrial year older.
It was my birthday, September 11, 2001 and the coordinates of that point
in space we call the
I arrived home from work, that night, my immediate reaction was to enter into a
personal space in my home where I pray and begin to privately pray for six of my
family members whom I was sure had been killed and ten others who lived, and
worked, in the immediate vicinity of the tragic and brutal terrorist attack upon
the United States.
that personal space of my home, and within my private inner chambers, I asked in
silence for light to be shed upon our lives.
I wanted to know the status of the scheme of things.
And then, as I focused my gaze upon the emblem of the rosy cross, within
a split second, I saw the body of Jesus Christ supervising a choir of Angels.
The Angels, as well as Jesus Christ, were dressed in garments that
resembled a polished linen material. It
was an electric white dress that was loosely fitted; yet, it seemed to delineate
what I am accustomed to calling a humanoid physical form.
standing at the bottom of the rubble, close to, and encircling the
my vantage point, the braided strand of golden thread appeared to enter into the
heart of each Angel from the back of their hearts and exited through the front
of each of their hearts. It pierced
individually into each of the Angel’s heart at approximately every six to
eight feet; thus creating an angelic chain that extended the length of several
miles of the braided golden thread.
could not see their hands, but each Angel appeared to be holding on to the
braided strand of golden thread a few inches from his heart’s portal exit.
It was almost as though someone or something was moving the golden thread
with invisible hands. I notice that
whenever an Angel made a movement with his portion of the golden thread, a
number of Celestial Souls were lifted from the dead bodies that were on top,
underneath, within, and among all the debris.
also noticed that each Angel greeted each Soul as if it was a member of his own
family. I heard them whisper: “the
father of,” “the mother of,” “the son of,” “the daughter of,”
“the brother of,” “the uncle of,” and so on and so forth.
Then, after each was welcomed, the identified Soul attached itself to the
golden thread in front of the Angel.
all the Celestial Souls were lifted from the ground, Jesus Christ began to walk
forward and everyone else followed him in a single file.
Although I was unable to see their feet, I had the distinct impression
that they were walking upwards as if hiking or climbing up a very steep hill.
Within seconds, literally, thousands of Celestial Souls had reached the
heavens. When at the tail end of the
braided strand of golden thread I saw twelve of my family member enter the
Celestial Heavens. I felt a thug - a
very sharp pull within my own heart, as if I had been connected to the braided
strand of golden thread all along. With
all the tremendous pain I was feeling, at that particular instant, I cannot tell
you what happened next, but the last thing I recall is seeing and hearing the
those of you who are asking yourselves: How did this happen? And What does this
mean? Please believe me, I asked myself the same questions.
Here is what I came up with.
did this happen?
logically, my physical body was in the physical world, which is one of the seven
subdivisions of the Seventh Cosmic Plane. From
there I left my body and went to the subdivision of the cosmic plane called the
world of thoughts. It was there where I toyed with the idea that my family
members were dead. Then I passed
unto, or arrived at the second Cosmic Plane where I had the dream-like vision,
while still awake. It was here where
I realized and was able to confirm that my family members had made their
transition to the next planes of life. This
means that I was conscious that even though my bodies were in different Cosmic
Planes, they were well aligned and in perfect harmony.
of this, that is to say the vision I experienced, was like looking at the
recording of a part of a story that had taken place some time in the past; a
cinematographical story - a movie of something that had already occurred.
I had the great honor of observing what had taken place in the already
mentioned Cosmic Planes. I saw what
took place there prior to taking place in the physical world.
The collapse of the
also saw the magnificent orchestration of the movie.
When something happens in the Physical Plane is because it has already
occurred in the higher Cosmic Planes. The
physical hour or time is only a point of reference for us humans.
In order for something to manifest in our physical world, that something
must be complete and in harmony with the other worlds and must have taken place
in the higher Cosmic Planes. Hence,
the event took place in the Second Cosmic Plane and the collapsing of the
does this mean?
me this experience illustrates the idea that:
are never, ever, alone; Jesus Christ is always with us,
those victims, physical death took place prior to the terrorist attack.
Perhaps it is so with every physical death, of this type.
this physical plane we are connected by the relationship labels we give
ourselves. But, in the spiritual
plane we are all one. We are all one,
connected by a long braided strand of golden thread.
We may identify ourselves as: “the father of,” “the mother of,”
“the brother of,” “the sister of,” “the uncle, aunt, nephew, niece of,”
or simply the friend of someone. But
more importantly we are citizens of a point in space of the universe.
let us not forget that From Spirit
Comes The Light - Yes! Indeed from spirit comes the light. If we do, If we do
forget that from spirit comes the light, we will begin to engage in minutia. If
you understand this, If you, truly, understand this concept.
You will begin to realize or grasp the pettiness of bickering over a flag
at a time like this
victims who perished along with my family members, on September 11, 2001 were
not just Americans. Many were none
American citizens from several countries outside the
this brutal terrorist attack, I have received hundreds of letters and electronic
mails from across the world expressing their support and solidarity.
It was interesting to note that they all depicted the intense emotion
that I was feeling on my birthday, on September 11, 2001.
Those letters resonated in unison with the fact that we are all citizens
of the world. Many of the people who
wrote stated that they had included the victims, their family members, their
significant others, as well as all of humanity in their prayers.
While many others have expressed what had dared to happen on our planet.
The tremendous depth of each writer tells me that there is still hope for
all of us. Their genuine loving care
and their kind, heartfelt, good wishes, both on a personal level and a
collective level tells me that the writers are all “walking the talk” and
their Souls are in unison with all the Celestial Souls that perished on my
birthday – September 11, 2001.
a Final Not I would like to end this talk with a quote, and my explanation of
it, from a man named Walt Whitman, who said years ago, and I quote: Let your
Soul stand cool and composed before a million universes.”
In my humble opinion, I think what he was really saying was this.
That when you orient your consciousness to the spiritual dimensions of
life and to the infinite power of the light that comes from Spirit, it is
possible for you to be stable and composed inwardly, no matter what the outer
circumstances may be; even an awe inspiring confrontation with a million
varying degrees of success, and in different situations, I have found this to be
perfectly true. Like the magnet
itself the power of Spirit is mysterious and we know but a fraction of all there
is to know about it. But let us
continue to study it. Let us
continue to use all we know about it. An
please, mark my words, for each and every one of us, the day of a greater Spirit
revelation will surely come.
This concludes my talk. Thank you, most kindly for your divine presence. May the Light that comes from Spirit be with you today and always. God Bless!
