This Week’s Quotation:
The realm of potential is the realm of angels, using that word to acknowledge that this is a range not just of energy, not just of higher consciousness, but of higher Being. And just as there is beingness in our human world, there is beingness at every level of creation. What do you think—that there is beingness here on Earth where there are people, but at higher ranges of reality, higher ranges of consciousness, there’s no beingness, there is just energy and vibration? No. There are angels. There is a realm of consciousness and the work of angels. What is an already-existing reality in that realm is the potential for this realm.Becoming a Sun p. 208
The Realm of Angels
Are you happy with the version of reality presented by most of modern science that reduces it all to a mechanical universe? That acknowledges matter and energy but ignores anything beyond that?
Before the explosion of the natural sciences in the 17th century, Western culture embraced an understanding of the cosmos that included the presence of beings that live beyond the human sphere. The same was true in cultures globally.
As a person of the 21st century, wouldn’t you love to have your cake and eat it too? Wouldn’t you love to have all the benefits of modern science and still retain an awareness that the universe is not just energized stuff? It is alive.
Of course, if you are like me, you might like to let go of all the ancient superstitions about spirits, gods, and malevolent evil influences.
That’s what’s so great about living in this era. We are in a unique position to own spirituality for ourselves. To consider all that history, science, and the spirituality of the world has to offer and discern for ourselves what is true.
Here is what I have come to know for myself. Just because I can’t see something with my eyes doesn’t mean it is not there. Just because I can’t see someone with my eyes doesn’t mean they are not there.
And here is what I notice. I am the most normal, the most reasonable, the most balanced, and happy when I acknowledge the presence of those I cannot see in my life.
Angels? I don’t usually call them that. It is just that I sometimes feel someone looking over my shoulder, holding me with love and compassion, and calling me on to what is next for me in my life.
Do you ever feel that? Do you believe it if you do?
What does it mean to become a sun?
Every human being is already a sun on the inside—a being of intense love and light. The difference is that some people have the vision and courage to become a sun on the outside. This difference is our human destiny.
