“A River Whose Streams Make Glad”

Nancy B. Detweiler, M.Ed., M.Div.



Psalm 46

“God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.  Therefore we will not fear, though the earth should change, though the mountains shake in the heart of the sea; though its waters roar and foam, though the mountains tremble with its tumult.

There is a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy habitation of the Most High.  God is in the midst of the city; it shall not be moved; God will help it when the morning dawns.  The nations are in an uproar, the kingdoms totter; he utters his voice, the earth melts.  The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge.

Come, behold the works of the Lord; see what desolations [wonders] he has brought on the earth.  He makes wars cease to the end of the earth; he breaks the bow, and shatters the spear; he burns the shields with fire.

Be still and know that I am God!  I am exalted among the nations; I am exalted in the earth.  The Lord of hosts is with us; the God of Jacob is our refuge.”

Psalm 46 could have been written by a 21st century mystic.  It describes perfectly the world in which we live.  Shining through the devastation and uproar can be seen a river whose streams make glad the city of God, the holy habitation of the Most High.  What is this river? … What is the city of God? …  How can we be still and know that I Am is God while living our harried lifestyles in the midst of this planetary turmoil? How can anyone be calm and peaceful?  And yet, to do so is Spirit’s answer to our troubles.

Amidst our planetary upheaval, we are witnessing an ever-growing field of evidence that there really is a river whose streams make glad.  This river signifies the energy of Spirit manifesting within our lives.  The city of God is the heart and mind in which there is conscious awareness of God’s indwelling presence … the individual who loves God with all the heart, mind, soul, and strength.  Into this city flows confirmation that Spirit is working very actively in our personal and planetary lives.  However, in order to be attuned to Spirit’s presence, we must be still and know that I AM is God.  Even though we humans may be creating a terrific mess, the I AM of each of us awaits the moment in which It can make all things right.  To be still and focus on God is the means by which we learn to perceive this river whose streams make glad.

Have you noticed the increased occurrence of synchronicities in your life?  You silently desire a particular thing and someone hands it to you.  You dream of someone you have not seen in years and he calls you.  You and your significant other suddenly write different stanzas to the same song.  You are witnessing the river of the One Mind bringing all into closer attunement with one another.

Have you experienced unusual verifications of Spirit’s guidance?  While you ponder an important issue in your life, you see Spirit’s answer written on a billboard or a car license plate.  Following a mystical experience that made you wonder, “Did that really happen?” an undeniable form of proof presents itself in a way impossible to explain.  Or, your prayer is answered by a friend who calls and speaks the very words you need to hear.  Spirit is speaking to us through innumerable avenues.

Are you hearing thoughts that you did not have?  Are you speaking with authority about that of which you know nothing?  Are you writing a paragraph and then wondering, “Where did that come from?” … “Did I write that?”  The river whose streams make glad is slowly washing away our deafness to the dimensions of Spirit.  Our spiritual guides and angels are speaking to us and we hear, even when we are not consciously listening.  What appears often to be accidental can become intentional, as we learn to be still and know that I AM is God.  Listen and you will hear!  What you hear may seem like thoughts that pop into your head.  The fact that the thoughts pop into your head, when you least expect them, is one means of proving they came from Spirit.  This is especially true when deep emotional responses are also forthcoming.  Or, you may get chills—a method often used for verification by Spirit.

Are you perceiving beyond the physical?  You observe two people talking and suddenly know what they are saying, even though you are located too far away to hear their words.  The phone rings and, before you answer it, you know who is calling and what will be said.  You walk into a friend’s home and breathe a sigh of contentment … the atmosphere fills you with peace.  As you watch a friend approach, you see the faint outline of other beings accompanying her.  The river whose streams make glad is eroding the energetic wall between you and the world of spirit.  We are beginning to see and to hear beyond the physical.

We are learning that we are never alone.  Our thoughts reach out to others.  They hear and respond.  Although most of us would prefer to keep our private thoughts to ourselves, the time is fast approaching when that will be impossible.  The more sensitive we become to the world of spirit, the more easily we perceive the thoughts of others.  For, in the spiritual dimensions, communication is by thought.  No words are needed.  In a place of no time and no space, a thought can traverse instantly the universe.  The receiver is impacted according to the quality of our thought.

Another marvelous way in which the river whose streams make glad is the reuniting of twin flames.  Several years ago, during meditation, I attended a ceremony on higher dimensions in which thousands of twin flames were reunited.  First, Ascended Master St. Germaine used the transmuting flame to cleanse away residual negative energy in our auric fields.  Then, he introduced Ascended Lady Master Nada, who presently works with twin flames.  Nada called forth all those twin flames who are ready to commit consciously to fulfilling their mission together—one requirement in qualifying for ascension.  Thousands came forward.  Each couple kneeled before Nada.  Placing her hands on our head, she blessed us with light.  As she did so, she provided intuitive insights concerning the mission to which we are intentionally committed.  Following the blessing, twin flames merged into one.  This merging is one of absolute, total unconditional love that is unlike anything we experience on the physical plane.

Later, I learned—via meditative insights—that because our planet is in such dire confusion, a dispensation has been handed down by the Karmic Board, on which Nada serves.  This dispensation grants permission for all twin flames to experience the intense love felt during a merging, regardless of the level of spiritual maturity.  For many, this merging is brief and experienced on an unconscious level.  The goal is to allow all persons to feel—on the soul level—a moment of unconditional, total love.  Hopefully, the soul’s experience will filter into the consciousness of every human being as the yearning for something more than all the negative energies in which we are presently immersed on our planet.  It is the river whose streams make glad calling forth the higher Self of all humanity.  Calling us to move from hate, fear, violence, and deprivation … TO … love, peace, equality, justice for all, and harmonic cooperation in re-creating the environment on our planet.

Psalm 46 reveals this river whose streams make glad flows through the chaos to the heart of all those who choose to be still and know that I AM is God.  Though our planetary society may appear to be falling apart before our eyes, there is an alternative.  We, as a human family, can make the intentional choice to come apart from our hectic lifestyles and the turmoil that confronts us daily.  We can create the means for all to be still and know that I AM is God.

In the stillness, we come to know that God is our refuge and strength, a very present help in trouble.  (Verse 8 of Psalm 46 is an example of the changes in meaning that can occur through the various translations of Scripture.  Translated from the Hebrew, verse 8 reads:  “… see what desolations he [the Lord] has brought on the earth.”  Translated from the Aramaic by Lamsa, verse 8 reads:  “Come, behold the works of God, for he does wonders in the earth.”  We can discern the correct translation by reading verse 9, which enumerates the wonders—not the desolations—of God.)

In the stillness, we come to know that God makes wars cease to the end of the earth; he breaks the bow, and shatters the spear; he burns the shields with fire. Turning to God, instead of to the military, could bring about a much different ending to our planetary story.  We have access to a river whose streams make glad.  Why not turn inward and allow this spiritual river to flow through our lives and make all things right?

Why choose what we can see with our physical eyes, when we possess the capacity to close our physical eyes and to behold God working wonders in our world.  God can make wars cease, IF we allow God to manifest through us.  Human beings are the physical plane vehicles through which God seeks expression.  When we work solely on the physical, guided by our physical plane senses, we choose war.  When we turn inward and allow God to express through us, we choose to break our bows and destroy our spears.  When we are still and know that I AM is God, we choose to cease all wars.

For the Lord of hosts is with us in our efforts to cease all war.  God, not our politicians and military, is our refuge and strength.  A river whose streams make glad is the means by which all things are revealed to us.  We need not walk through life, clinging blindly to the false security of human efforts.  We have available to us the true Source of all security, justice, and peace.  In myriad ways, the river of Spirit seeks to flow into our lives … to awaken us to this Truth.

God is our refuge and strength …. He makes wars cease to the end of the earth.



Genesis 2 depicts symbolically the creation of twin flames.  The Creator separates Eve from Adam; they are two parts of the same flame.  Through the eons, twin flames may incarnate on the physical plane or may choose to remain on other dimensions of existence.  According to the choices we make, we often become separated from our twin flame. Throughout the eons of physical incarnations, we yearn for the intense love we felt when joined with our twin flame.  Now, … to be consciously reunited with our twin flame is a reward that must be earned.  Only Spirit reunites twin flames—at the perfect time for each twin flame’s spiritual advancement.  We can hasten this reunion by consciously undergoing the initiatory process required of us all.  As we mature spiritually, we assist our twin flame in doing the same, regardless of where that twin flame is residing.

You can learn more about twin flames and the initiatory process through at least two resources:

First, my book entitled:   Where Are You, God?  A Metaphysical Interpretation of the Biblical Book of Job – available for free download on my website.  The initiatory process is evidenced through Job’s life.  His story depicts everyone’s soul journey on planet Earth—here we learn most often through suffering.  Why?  Suffering gets our attention and motivates us to grow into the Light.

Second, you may order from Amazon.com, a little book by Elizabeth Clare Prophet entitled, Soul Mates & Twin Flames:  The Spiritual Dimension of Love & Relationships.

The Law of Life & Teachings By Divine Beings

A.D.K. Luk, Editor

With Notes In Brackets By

Nancy B. Detweiler, M.Ed., M.Div.

Goddess of Liberty, July 1954: “At the time when the Sun chose to create this solar system, twelve great Beings volunteered to embody the Twelve-fold Nature of the Sun God and Goddess, and to become the foci of the mighty Virtues in the Electronic Belt around the Sun.  I was One of Those.  Our relationship to the Sun each One, is to specialize in, concentrate and draw in intensification the power of one of these particular God Virtues.  All Twelve Virtues are embodied within the consciousness of Helios and Vesta.  That Virtue which I have chosen to embody, to radiate, and pour forth, is the God Virtue of Liberty.  (She is mankind’s Cosmic Mother.)

The original zodiac referred to these 12 Cosmic Temples or Houses in which each One of Us Who represent the Twelve Virtues of the Godhead abide.  Like the Rays of Light in the Causal Body pictured on the chart [of our Divine Self, for example], our radiation pours forth into the universe.  As the planets in orderly sequence pass around the Sun, the concentrated radiation and power of each one of the Twelve Virtues is intensified for a period of 30 or 31 days, while the planet is within the House or Temple of that concentrated Ray….  During the month when the consciousness of mankind is focused upon Libra [approximately 9/23 – 10/22], the consciousness, radiation, and power of Liberty flows through the Earth and nourishes the Liberty Flame within the soul and inner self of mankind.

In the course of the 12 months, as the Earth passes around the Sun, for every 30 days, one of the mighty Virtues plays upon the planet and through the inner bodies of its people with greater intensity.  When the original Cosmic zodiac again comes forth and the Law allows, those of you who are wise, giving attention to the outpouring of that Cosmic Virtue can with yourselves magnetize Liberty, Truth, or Purity within whatever House the planet [Earth] rests.”

Helios, March 1955: “There is no such thing as malicious influence from these twelve Cosmic Focuses.  There are only condensations of powerful life and nourishment.  As the planet Earth and its sister planets enter for 30 days into each such House, the specific blessings of those Beings do nourish the inner centers [chakras] of the individual. They particularly stimulate those who have come to birth in any embodiment under the auspices of that House.

In the House of Aries [approximately March 21 – April 21] – there are the sylphs, the Devas of the air, the exquisite Temples built like the castles in fairy tales of old.  There is the substance and energy provided for the air itself which you breathe, the purifying power of it.  There is focused the Cosmic Virtue of Wisdom.

In the House of Pisces [approximately February 21 – March 20] is the focus of beloved Neptune, the purity of the water element.  There are the undines, and all the focuses that represent the water element in which they are trained.  The purifying powers of Neptune do flood forth through the Earth, at that time of the year specifically.

In the House of Aquaria [approximately January 22 – February 21], mankind came close to His name in Aquarius.  In that House is the momentum of progress, of stimulation, of the intensification of growth.  From Aquaria for the New Age, we see the stimulation of the spiritual interest within the consciousness of mankind.

Within the heart of the great Being Minerva Who has been called Capricorn, in this House [approximately December 22 – January 21], we find the focus of discrimination, discretion, perception, intuition.  There are mighty forces and elements flooding through the Earth and its atmosphere during the period when Her outpouring is so great, that can be absorbed by the receptive consciousness.  Even as the Spring flower absorbs the specific radiation of April or May, according to its own perfect design.

The House of Sagittarius [approximately November 22 – December 22] belongs to mighty Zarathustra, the spirit of fire, of enthusiasm.  Here live the salamanders, and those who work particularly with the Elementals of fire.  The radiation and powers of the Zarathustras has been shown through all the histories of the Earth, down through the Atlantean and Lemurian ages back to the beginning of time.

The House that has unfortunately been called Scorpio [approximately October 23 – November 22] is a Focus of Mighty Victory.  All His powers and the momentum of victory of hundreds of thousands of centuries of accomplishment is within the radiation and the power that flows through Him.

The House of Libra [approximately September 23 – October 22], close to that of the Goddess of Liberty in name, is a Focus of Liberty and of Freedom to this Earth.

The House of Virgo [approximately August 23 – September 22] represents the balance of Virgo, the solidity, the assurance and the confidence.  A few of these great Beings were fortunate enough not to have the clouds of misconception drawn across Their beautiful faces, and They stand still revealed in the majesty and mastery of Their Light.

That which has been distorted into Leo [approximately July 21 – August 22], the lion, is the House of Apollo, the Master like Saint Germain of royalty, courtesy, dignity, and princely charm.

That which has been called Cancer [approximately June 21 – July 21], is the Focus of Cyclopea, now known as Vesta, with all the power of concentration, all the power through consecration that is His.

Gemini [approximately May 22 – June 21], that two-fold name, two-fold nature, is the House of the Cosmic Christ, the Focus of Love, of Lord Maitreya (at that time, He is now the Buddha – the Editor).  The Christ man working through personality, the Divine Image imbedded perhaps in flesh.”

The House of Taurus [approximately April 21 – May 22] is really that of mighty Hercules, the Focus of faith, strength, of courage, and of power.

As you pass from month to month through these various signs, you are passing through the Virtues which are radiated from Our own Bodies.  Those Virtues are provided by Our conscious invocation to the Central Sun and endeavor to duplicate in Ourselves the nature of that Central Sun.  You can avail yourself through the magnetic power of your own thought, of the blessing of that specific stream of concentrated energy which plays upon your Earth and through your vehicles.  That specific radiation is a power that can raise one man in one embodiment, whereas it would take another a thousand embodiments to accomplish it by self effort.  I have seen it done.  Those who progress beyond the masses must have made available to them certain spiritual nourishment.  Jesus said that He had food to eat that man knew not of.  Because any individual even like yourself, who is willing to give more than ordinary assistance to the masses, is likewise given the opportunity to take of nourishment of which mankind knows nothing.  Take them or leave them.  Because that is the Law of Life.” Divine Self

The Divine Self Chart was designed by Elizabeth Claire Prophet and can be purchased at


[“Take them or leave them.  Because that is the Law of Life.”  Here Helios is reminding us that we have freewill.  We can choose to be nourished by the Virtues in each zodiac House or we can ignore them.  That we have freewill choice is the Law of Life.]

The Seven Rays


Taken from Alan Oken’s

Soul-Centered Astrology:  A Key To Your Expanding Self

With Comments by Nancy B. Detweiler, M.Ed., M.Div.

COMMENT:  We function on a combination of Rays.  The two major Rays upon which you are functioning will be connected to your Sun Sign and to the Ascendant within your Astrological Natal Chart.  The only way to determine the Ascendant is to have a computer print-out of your natal chart.  Since the Sun represents your Soul in esoteric astrology, you can learn the overall intent of your Soul by knowing its Ray.  However, it is important to remember that the natal chart is an extremely detailed map of your Soul’s purposes for incarnating into a physical body.  Learning about one or two Rays on which you are functioning is simply a beginning.  There is always much more to learn!

I offer this brief information to assist you in “Know Thyself” – a major task in preparing for ascension into higher consciousness.  Understanding your family members as unique human beings with specific soul intentions is also helpful.

Description of the Rays – Quoting Alan Oken

If your Sun Sign or Ascendant is Aries, Leo, or Capricorn, you are functioning on the FIRST RAY OF WILL/POWER. “The energy of the First Ray acts as a catalyst, breaking up old existing conditions so that new ones may eventuate.

Soul Level:  The use of spiritual will for the benefit of the collective; power utilized for the purpose of enhancing unity and beauty; the expression of will for the purposes and well-being of the group.

Personality Level:  Ray of soldier, statesman, ruler, explorer, leader, government, politics, and administration.

General positive Traits:  Courage, diligence, quick discernment, leadership abilities , inspires others, adventurous, not dismayed by initial failures, but remains persistent until goal is achieved.

General Character Difficulties:  Limitless ambition, uses will for selfish purposes, manipulative of others through personal power, easy to anger, cannot take criticism, strong sense of personal pride.

To Be Cultivated:  Compassion, humility, tolerance, caring, sympathy.”

If your Sun Sign or Ascendant is Gemini, Virgo, or Pisces, you are functioning on the SECOND RAY OF LOVE/WISDOM. “The Second Ray is called the Master Builder….  It represents the cohesive force in the universe….  The Second Ray is the energy behind what we call “universal love” … connected to the powers of intuition….  The Second Ray instills cooperation between people, philanthropy, and the urge to serve.

Soul Level:  The urge to bring about a sustaining, loving wholeness to any group or life situation; the ability—through magnetic attraction—to bring about healing; the focus for the stimulation of consciousness, and hence for greater love/wisdom; the ability to see beyond differences into unifying principles.

Personality Level:  Ray of teachers, people in the healing and service professions.

General Positive Traits:  Naturally sympathetic and compassionate; eager to be of assistance; generous and philanthropic; calm, strong, and patient when dealing with the daily situations of life; faithful and reliable; lovers of truth who are very intuitive by nature.

General Character Difficulties:  Coldness, if Wisdom aspect is overemphasized; indifference to others; misplaced affection—always feeling sorry for things; a negative, ‘Why is it always happening to me’ outlook to life; rarely satisfied with personal accomplishments.

To Be Cultivated:  Faith in love as the healing force in life.”

If your Sun Sign or Ascendant is Cancer, Libra, or Capricorn, you are functioning on the THIRD RAY OF ACTIVE INTELLIGENCE. “The energy of the Third Ray … permeates into every form of life.  The Third is the Active Intelligence of Divinity, and represents the inherent intelligence within all matter….  All of humanity is strongly governed by the Third Ray….  The Ray of activity.  People who are closely connected to the Third Ray are very much on the go.

Soul Level:  The birthing of ideas to benefit humanity; the structuring of time and activities to allow for group energies to flourish; inherent, objective intelligence ready to be used in service to humanity in all ways.

Personality Level:  Ray of the astrologer, scholar, judge, banker, economist, chess master, abstract thinker.

General Positive Traits:  Adaptability, clear intellect, articulate speech, and ease in communicating ideas; business skills; ability to plan in advance in logical ways; a fine capacity not to worry oneself or others about insignificant matters.

General Character Difficulties:  The tendency to be overly active and nervous; too much pride in one’s intellectual capabilities; selfishness through a sense of isolation; the manipulation of others, especially in terms of the use of other people’s resources; mind games; overly strong attachment to materialism.

To Be Cultivated:  Tolerance, sympathy, devotion, accuracy in detail, open-mindedness to other people’s ideas.”

If your Sun Sign or Ascendant is Taurus, Scorpio, or Sagittarius, you are functioning on the FOURTH RAY OF HARMONY THROUGH CONFLICT. “The purpose of the Fourth Ray [is to be] an agent of balance.  The Fourth Ray leads to that type of discrimination required for the life of the Soul and the way of service.  It is thus the Ray of trial and error, so that we may move from the unreal to the real.  The Fourth Ray is the energy behind what we may call ‘Divine Discontent’….  As the Ray of beauty and art, the Fourth Ray is also essentially the refiner—the urge for an ever-more-perfect representation of the Will of God in the many forms of Its expression….  The Fourth is the Ray of struggle, and those people who are especially connected to it will find a very special duality appearing in their lives….  As the Ray of the artist, the Fourth is especially connected to color.  People who are closely associated with this Ray may find themselves with tremendous gifts.

Soul Level:  The ‘Divine Artist’—one who seeks to raise humanity’s consciousness through the realization of the beauty and harmony existing in nature and in the world of forms; the mediator between heaven and earth, God and man; the Priest.

Personality Level:  Ray of the mediator, interpreter, artist, and those healers whose treatments involve the harmonizing and balancing of the body’s energies and polarities—acupuncture, certain techniques of massage, color therapy.

General Positive Traits:  Strong sense of equilibrium and symmetry; a poetic sensibility, especially about nature; imaginative and creative in the formation of one’s life-style; can sustain struggle and conflict until desired aims are achieved.

General Character Difficulties:  Indolence, self-indulgence; may be overly passionate; may initiate conflicts unnecessarily; restlessness and a tendency to depression when goals cannot be accomplished.  (Since the Fourth is very much a blend of Rays One & Two, when the energy of the First Ray of Will/Power is not in balance with the Second Ray, the resulting lack of direction for the expression of Will is clearly marked.  This demonstrates as a poorly focused sense of personal orientation to life and a resultant lack of willpower.)

To Be Cultivated:  Serenity, emotional balance, confidence, self-control, truth, clarity of purpose.

If your Sun Sign or Ascendant is Leo, Sagittarius, or Aquarius, you are functioning on the FIFTH RAY OF CONCRETE KNOWLEDGE. “The Fifth Ray is the expression of Love/Wisdom through the intellect.  This occurs through scientific research and experimentation in order that the Plan of Divinity may be revealed through the mind of man….  It is the purpose of the Higher Mind to penetrate and purify the lower so that humanity may perceive, identify, and know the Mind of God behind all the forms of manifestation.  This is the great work of the Fifth Ray.

As the sign of Aquarius is on the Fifth Ray and on no other, the scientist and researcher will lead the way into the esoteric realities in our time, and reveal through their work those metaphysical Laws and Principles which underlie the Ancient Wisdom Teachings.

[We are moving into the New Aquarian Age, thus the importance of this 5th Ray.  LISTEN UP, ALL 5TH RAY PERSONS ]  The more evolved of FIFTH RAY-influenced people will, through the scientific method, seek to prove the validity of metaphysical inquiry.  The contributions they make to the well-being of society are limitless.

Soul Level:  Those who work to be connecting links of intelligence between the abstract world of pure ideation and the concrete world of practical application; precision and exactitude in creating those forms and inventions which allow for the outpouring of Higher-Mind Intelligence.

Personality Level:  Ray of the scientist, technician, lawyer, engineer, researcher, computer expert, and logician.

General Character Traits:  Power to master a chosen field on expertise; detached observer in quest for truth; accuracy in speech; precise mental perceptions and vision for the application of knowledge; love of scientific inquiry.

General Character Difficulties:  Lacking in compassion and sympathy; an overly narrow perspective; constant analysis and the splitting of hairs; pedantic; overemphasis on the form aspect of life; materialism; harsh criticism, mental pride, prejudice.

To Be Cultivated:  Intellectual tolerance; devotion; active love, nurturing, reverence, and sympathy.”

If your Sun Sign or Ascendant is Virgo, Sagittarius, or Pisces, you are functioning on the SIXTH RAY OF DEVOTION & IDEALISM. “The Sixth has been the primary Ray of the Piscean Age—[the Age now ending]….  The religious creeds and ideals connected to martyrdom are still influential wherever the Sixth Ray energy predominates….  Terrorism, suicide, and all other urges for self-annihilation based on religious and/or philosophical idealism are very much under the influence of the Sixth Ray….  One finds in its expression those devotional qualities that keep families together, instill great and small philanthropic gestures, and denote such saintly people as Mother Teresa and St. Francis of Assisi….  The Sixth Ray is also the inspiring force of people for whom the principles of Love, Goodness, Purity of Heart, and Selflessness are living energies and form their way of life.

Soul Level:  The urge to transform selfish and personal motivation into selfless, impersonal devotion for the good of all; the bringing about of circumstances which reorient the exclusive to the inclusive for the greater expression of Love/Wisdom.

Personality Level:  Ray of the saint, martyr, evangelist/preacher, religious workers of all kinds, psychics, mediums, many kinds of healers, theologians, poets, etc.

General Positive Traits:  Reverence and devotion; single-mindedness when attached to a cause; courage to fight for beliefs; love, tenderness, loyalty, sincerity, self-sacrifice.

General Character Difficulties:  Fanaticism; blind devotion; bigotry and prejudice; exclusive attitudes; hero worship; overly dependent on others for emotional support.

To Be Cultivated:  Tolerance; truth; common sense and practicality; flexibility to be supportive of other people’s views; balance of one’s feelings.”

[During the present transitional period, Earth is passing from the Piscean 6TH RAY Age


The New Aquarian 7TH RAY Age]

If your Sun Sign or Ascendant is Aries, Cancer, or Capricorn, you are functioning on the SEVENTH RAY OF CEREMONIAL ORDER & MAGIC. “The Seventh Ray’s main function is to work for the infusion of the energies of spirit with the substance of matter….  It is the working of the Seventh Ray which aids in the fusion of the Soul and the personality, and the resulting reorientation of an individual’s life purpose and direction.  It is this process of Soul infusion that can be symbolically rendered by the Seventh Ray alchemist as the process of changing lead into gold.  The hope for the Aquarian Age, the Age of the Seventh Ray, is for such a ‘golden’ collective transformation and reorientation to take place for humanity….  The recognition of the esoteric value of crystals in terms of their healing properties has been reawakened from its origin in ancient, magical traditions.  One should take note of the fact that the color particularly associated with the Seventh Ray is violet.  Of all the many kinds of crystals available at the present time, the amethyst variety seems to be especially popular.

The function of the Seventh Ray is to change those forms, both physical and mental, which are no longer of service to the Plan of unfolding evolution of creativity….  The energy behind the New Age is Jupiter, esoteric ruler of Aquarius, and the planet most closely associated with the Second Ray of Love/Wisdom.  It is this factor that is the great hope for the future of humanity.

Soul Level:  The urge to gather, formulate, and harmonize various aspects of a given set of life circumstances into an ordered expression for the Will of God; the urge to make ‘heaven on earth.

Personality Level:  Ray of the master of ceremonies of any event; film or stage producer; ritualist and shaman; organizational bureaucrat.

General Positive Traits:  Care in detail, perseverance, strength, and self-reliance; the ability to bring forth order out of chaos; often able to merge the powers of will (Ray One) with cohesiveness (Ray Two) to produce material results (Ray Three).

General Character Difficulties:  Too rigidly adheres to rules and regulations; may sacrifice self-determination to follow orders set down by superiors; may be very interested in omens and superstitions (especially if the Sixth Ray is also strong); pretentious, formal, follows ceremony mechanically.

To Be Cultivated:  Humility, gentleness, tolerance, open-mindedness, greater realization of world unity.”

COMMENT:  You may combine a study of your Ray/Rays with a study of your Sun Sign by going to my website:  www.pathwaytoascension.com and scrolling down the left hand column of my Home Page to “Your Sun Signs,” then compare these with “Your Destiny Number” based on your name and also listed in the left hand column.

We live in an orderly cosmos that knows YOU in great detail.  YOU are an integral part of the Whole and your place within the Divine Plan can be filled by no other.

The more you get to “KNOW THYSELF” as the cosmos knows you, the more exciting life becomes.

COMMENT:  The biblical symbolism of 3 Crosses on Golgotha depicts our spiritual journey.  Below is a brief description of each of the 3 crosses, taken from Alan Oken’s Soul-Centered Astrology:  A Key To Your Expanding Self.

Mutable Cross: represents “the totally personality-centered individual….  The focus of awareness and the underlying life motivation are underscored by ‘desire’—desire for the material life….  The passage of many lifetimes is related to the Mutable Cross, and serves to give the Soul the necessary ‘knowledge of earthly experiences.’

COMMENT:  The Mutable Cross is represented by the criminal who derided Jesus in Luke23:39.

Fixed Cross: “At this stage of human evolution, desire mutates to ‘aspiration.’  Once again, one may spend many lifetimes at this level, for the refinement of the lower vehicles (the physical, emotional, and mental bodies) is a long process.  The increasing tension of duality ‘between heaven and earth’ becomes strongly felt, and a choice is eventually made as to the nature of one’s path in life.  One is now conscious of the personality-Soul relationship.  At this point, one is said to be moving onto the Fixed Cross.   The purpose of lifetimes spent here is the revelation of ‘the true nature of Love.’

COMMENT:  The Fixed Cross is represented by the criminal who recognized that Jesus had done nothing wrong.  Luke 23:40-42

Cardinal Cross: “Once a person has become fully anchored in his/her Soul’s orientation, and Love has merged with knowledge to become Love’s Wisdom, evolution takes on a very distinct focus—total Soul-centeredness.  The individual is then said to mount the Cardinal Cross….  [It is on the Cardinal Cross] that a person (finally!) gets his ‘job’—his planetary purpose in terms of service to the collective humanity.  It is at this point that the personality has become the total vehicle for the Soul, and the orientation of the life has transformed itself from a personal to an impersonal one.  This is called the Path of Sacrifice….  In this case, ‘sacrifice’ means the will to manifest, the ‘leaving of the Father’s House’ and the descent into matter.”

COMMENT:  In other words, at this point in our spiritual evolution, we have the privilege of making a freewill choice to ‘sacrifice’ the glorious realms of spirit and incarnate into a physical body for the purpose of serving humanity.

COMMENT:  The Cardinal Cross is represented by Jesus, who willingly incarnated to serve humanity by showing us the Path of Initiation into Higher Consciousness.  Read my article entitled “Ascension” by scrolling down the center of my Home Page at www.pathwaytoascension.com.

COMMENT:  Each of have lived many lifetimes and are presently living in accordance with one of the three crosses.  We can greatly speed up our inner spiritual journey by consciously intending to ascend with planet Earth by 2012.   Jesus incarnated to show all of humanity the Way.  He did not start a religion nor did he adhere to one.  Even though he spoke in the synagogues of his day, there is not one recorded word that he spoke in favor of the religious authorities.  Instead, he repeatedly rebuked them.  I say this to say that all of humanity ascends in the same way—by mounting the Cardinal Cross—regardless of the religion to which one adheres or does not follow.

All presently incarnated on Earth have been granted the opportunity to ascend with Earth IF WE SO CHOOSE.  Soon the Ascended Masters and our galactic brothers and sisters will openly appear on Earth to be sure all know the process of Ascension and have the chance to achieve it.  Then, our soul’s “job” will be to assist in creating “a new heaven and a new earth.”

Archangel Michael, May 1953 – “Then came the seven Elohim, the great Builders of Form, each clothed in robes representative of His office.  Then I came with the other six Archangels, and We conferred together upon the creation and sustenance of a solar system.

Helios and Vesta showed Us on the Cosmic Screen the planets which They had decided to externalize from Their own Light Bodies, to cradle the members of the seven root races.  They had applied to the Central Sun for these which were to evolve into Ascended Beings.

Each planet was created for the particular number of lifestreams which had been decided upon by the God-Parents, to give opportunity for evolution upon it.  The contour of its surface and the size of the planet corresponds to the particular evolution within the mind of the Father and Mother of the root race.

Then We Who represent the protecting power of each successive planet came forth and stayed until the evolution returned in full mastery to the God-Parents.

There was the majestic Presence of Virgo, the flaming Presence of Aries, and the serene Presence of Neptune, Who stood before the Elohim and accepted the opportunity and responsibility of drawing the elemental substance from Their own kingdoms into the matrix of Electronic Light formed by the Elohim from the Rays of Their own hearts.

Through invocation These three Beings drew around Them Nature Devas, Builders of Form, and small Elementals representing Their kingdoms.  The Beings of the various kingdoms accepted the voluntary imprisonment which would be required to make a habitable globe for the new and innocent spirits as well as for the recalcitrant members from the preceding planets of this solar system, but not those of the systems above this.

As there were some who were unable to complete their evolution, and it was necessary that they be moved to the next planet when it had coalesced and was ready for habitation.  These souls were carried within the Auras of the Archangels and joined with the newly born spiritual egos who were destined for a small number of lifestreams, yet it took upon itself the residue of all the preceding planets of this system, as well as the new egos who were to have the first embodiment in physical form upon it.

I was chosen to bring to Earth the first lifestreams who were to embody for the first time.  This group was prepared at inner levels and was chosen for this opportunity.”

NOTE:  The Love with which all souls are created and cared for by the Divine Beings.  Those who choose not to ascend with Earth (Gaia) by 2012 will be carried to another planet that suits the level of their conscious awareness.  They will continue to evolve on that planet.

Master Jesus, June 1954 – “It was love that caused Helios and Vesta to apply to the heart of creation for opportunity to create a universe.  It was love that helped Them to fashion out of Light the beautiful planet.  It was love in that great mighty Cosmic Silent Watcher that drew Her voluntarily and made Her to accept the pattern of this universe into Her own living body, willing to remain as long as was required until that pattern could be externalized and every portion and part thereof developed and matured.

It was love that drew the Elohim and in Their great and sweet desire to do the Will of God, caused Them to look upon the Divine pattern and then weaving the energies of Their own consecrated lives create the planets of this system.  It was love beyond the human mind to conceive that drew mighty Virgo, that drew Neptune, and Aries.  They came with a tremendous number of spirits representative of Their kingdoms and perfected the Earth, so beautiful that it was comparable to the Sun, shining and the harmony and the melody of its natural Keynote adding to the Music of the Spheres.

It was love in the heart of Amaryllis that drew forth every known type of flower.  It was love, love infinite beyond measure that drew the guardian Spirits from their own superior evolution, and made them in love volunteer to help the earth spirits to manifest perfection.”

NOTE:  Contrast the love with which our planet was created with the destruction humankind has mindlessly inflicted upon it.  Wake up to Love, folks!

Arcturus, December 1954 – “It is the same in every application, from the smallest personal thing to the greatest Cosmic endeavor.  It has not come through happenstance or by a gift of faith, but is an actual precipitation which has proceeded first through the (1) will to do it, (2) the perception of what one wishes, (3) the love to fulfill it, (4) the purity of consciousness to hold it untouched by imperfection, (5) the concentration upon the design, (6) the rhythm of application in decree or silent mental thought force, and the feelings pouring Light into it, (7) then encase it round with peace and consecrate it and dedicate it to the use of the race.  Seal it in the Flame of the Eloah of Peace.”

NOTE:  The Universal Laws of manifestation

Hercules, September 1954 – “They willed to externalize the pattern Helios and Vesta desired (First Ray action)….  Through the Ray of Wisdom They perceived each planet as it was intended, the size, the rivers, mountains, vegetation and atmosphere, and the number of lifestreams which were to come upon it, (Second Ray).  Through the Flame of Divine Love (cohesion) They each in turn drew the Light pattern from the bosom of the Silent Watcher.  They felt the Love of Orion and desired to cooperate with the God-Parents of this system to bring forth the planet into perfect form.  It was Love which enabled Them to accept Their Design, rather than to project Their own, (Third Ray).  The Design was being held inviolate by the Flame of Purity of the Eloah of Purity, so that not even a blade of grass would be conceived out of Their minds, but every detail would be manifest according to the Divine Plan (Fourth Ray).

Then the radiation of Vista, holding the concentration of energy, and channeling it, called for the Builders of Form, the Angel Devas and the Directors of the Powers of the Elements so that They could coalesce Their energies and talents around one planet at a time, thus serve until it was completed.  This concentration was very important so that the planet was ready when the Manu of the first root race and His people who were to embody upon it could come forth.  When They created the planets of this system They came rhythmically.  It was the power of the Ray of Concentration which drew and coalesced the actual form of the Earth (Fifth Ray).  Then Arcturus in rhythm of Invocation and Music perfected every tiny part until it all shone like a diamond, (Seventh Ray).  When the creation of the planet was completed it was set into motion by the Eloah of Peace through the Three-fold Flame within His heart, and the Earth began its revolution as the radiation of His Peace flowed forth.  The Three-fold Flame began to hum and sing and the planet began to revolve upon its axis (Sixth Ray).

The Sun of Even Presence in the center sent forth a radiation producing a soft glow on the surface on the Earth.  As there was no decay the vegetation at the end of its season of expression, each manifestation just disappeared.

The Elohim, the universal Builders, have the universal Light substance as Their canvas, the Causal Body of the Central Sun as Their paint, the Cherubim, Seraphim, Angel Devas, and Builders of Form as Their brushes, to create planets, stars, and systems which is Their work.  The Music of the Spheres is the sound of the energies of creation as They do Their perfect work in joy, harmony, and perfection.”

The Elohim – “Rhythm provides nourishment for the form.  Then came the action of the Eloah of Peace Whose service is to seal the finished creation in the protection and perfection of Cosmic Peace.”

Eloah Orion, October 1954 – “When a planet is completed and it begins its revolutions on its axis, the Music of the Spheres begins to pour forth from it.  The radiation of the Eloah of Peace holds the form of the planet from disintegration, because where harmony, peace, and tranquility abide, that which one has drawn forth cannot be taken away from him nor disintegrate.  The Eloah of Peace enfolds and seals all creations in a planetary scheme brought forth by the Elohim, for the period of existence designed for that creation.”

NOTE:  There is a Divine Plan for all of creation.  We are never left alone to find our way the best we can.  Inner guidance is always available to us.

NOTE:   According to the time of our birth into a physical body, each Soul is functioning on one or more of the Rays.  The Seven Major Rays are:

The First Ray – The Ray of Will/Power. If your Sun Sign is Aries, Leo, or Capricorn, you are functioning on the First Ray.

The Second Ray – The Ray of Love/Wisdom.  If your Sun Sign is Gemini, Virgo, or Pisces, you are functioning on the Second Ray.

The Third Ray – The Ray of Active Intelligence.  If your Sun Sign is Cancer, Libra, or Capricorn, you are functioning on the Third Ray.

The Fourth Ray – The Ray of Harmony through Conflict. If your Sun Sign is Taurus, Scorpio, or Sagittarius, you are functioning on the Fourth Ray.

The Fifth Ray – The Ray of Concrete Knowledge. If your Sun Sign is Leo, Sagittarius, or Aquarius, you are functioning on the Fifth Ray.

The Sixth Ray – The Ray of Devotion & Idealism. If your Sun Sign is Virgo, Sagittarius, or Pisces, you are functioning on the Sixth Ray.

The Seventh Ray – The Ray of Ceremonial Order & Magic. If your Sun Sign is Aries, Cancer, or Capricorn, you are functioning on the Seventh Ray.

Astrology:  A Key to Your Expanding Self

Planet Earth is functioning on the Second Ray of Love/Wisdom.  Therefore, as inhabitants of the Earth, each of us function on one or more Rays within the energy of Love/Wisdom. We live and move and have our being within the energy of Love/Wisdom.



The following are excerpts from

A.D.K. Luk’s Law of Life & Teachings by Divine Beings, Books I-III

With Notes by

Nancy B. Detweiler, M.Ed., M.Div.

The above named books, which are now out-of-print, describe the world of spirit—the 5th dimension and above.  As we live out the last 3 years of the 4th World Age on the 3rd dimensional plane of duality, we need to widen our perspective of life to include the cosmos and the multiple dimensions of existence.  Many Earth humans are approaching a giant leap in consciousness into this cosmic world.  I offer the following excerpts to encourage all of us to begin thinking in much more expansive terms, for by doing so we lift our consciousness to higher levels.  Until we set aside the old and embark on the new, little do we know how exciting it is to experience “The Truth Will Set You Free!”

The Ascended Masters, or Great White Brotherhood, are those Earth human beings who have undergone successfully the Initiation Process and ascended into higher consciousness.  The Master Teacher, Jesus, demonstrated this Initiation Process for Earth humans—regardless of religious affiliation.  You may find a summary of this process in an article entitled “ASCENSION” found in the center of my home page at www.pathwaytoascension.com (scroll down to it).  Some of those Earth humans who ascend choose to remain close to Earth and to assist their brothers/sisters in ascending.  This group is called the Great White Brotherhood—having nothing to do with race and everything to do with the White Light of Spirit.

The Law of Life & Teachings by Divine Beings offers teachings by the Ascended Masters, many of whom we know as biblical characters now going by their Soul Name.  I list the name of the Ascended Master, or other Divine Being, before his/her teachings with the date on which it was given.


Lord Maha Chohan, Summer 1956: “There are only two activities in all of life….  There is only the in-breath and the out-breath.  There is the magnetization (the in-breath) of the gifts and power of the God Presence, and then Its radiation (the out-breath).  Both of these activities take place at Cosmic levels with regard to solar systems, galaxies, and the entire universe.

On the out-breath when creation takes place, the Central Sun of a system breathes forth the Suns from within Its own Aura.  Each Sun then, in Its turn, breathes out the planets destined to be part of the solar system.  This comprises an expression of the out-breath of Deity as regards a galaxy and a solar system.

At the end of a “Cosmic Day,” the Central Sun of that system notifies all the Suns below It that it is time for the in-breathing of their planets, in preparation for the in-breathing of all the Suns and their planets back into the Electronic Belt of the Central Sun.”

NOTE:  All bodies within the cosmos are Living Beings.

Lord Lante, August 1953: “When first the Earth became a habitable home, it was required of the Law that the Manu descend into the physical appearance world, carrying with Him the Magnetic Rod of Power, which would be the cohesive force holding the souls destined to embody and evolve into mastery within and on the Earth, and in its Aura.

When a planet becomes ready for habitation, this mystic Pole is drawn by one of the guardians of the race, for without It the souls would have no lasting affinity for the theater of their evolution.  As that directed Ray was precipitated from the hearts of the Father and Mother of the system (Helios & Vesta), It became the Pathway over which the first rhythmic release of mankind’s spirits walked into the world, and took form, together with the guardian Spirits.”

NOTE:  Who are we Earth humans?  We are spirits who took on a physical body for a while and who walk in the company of our guardian Spirits.

Master Jesus, April 1958: “The gravity pull of Earth is a beautiful thing.  It is a part of the activity of Polaris and Magnus, it is a part of the service of the great Beings that dwell in the Earth and protect the permanent Atom therein.  That gravity pull is necessary, for it keeps the people, all those unascended, on the planet.  It enables them to walk about without flying into space as this small Earth revolves around its axis and moves forward at the same time at great speed.  The gravity pull holds all the souls belonging to the Earth in the orbit of the Earth.”

Lord Maha Chohan, August 1956: “Every planet of this solar system vibrates at a different rate.  This was proven centuries ago with the experimentations of beloved Kuthumi in the Pythagorean school.  Every planet of this system has a different vibration as well as music, which represents the Keynote of that planet as it swings around the Sun.  Each vibration should be a part of the Music of the Spheres.  The Keynote of the planet Earth is off center and flat, a dissonance in the Music of the Spheres, and for that reason the Earth has been circled round by a special protective ring of Light, so that the dissonance cannot affect the rest of the solar system.”

Goddess Vesta, August 1956: “The galaxy to which the Earth belongs came from the Central Sun of Alpha and Omega and has seven Suns with 49 planets….  On the in-breath, which is the point you are coming to now in your own galaxy, the Suns began ascending, number 12 entering into the orbit of 11, number 11 going into the orbit of number ten and so on, all the planets of that system also ascending one space….  Venus will move inward into the orbit of Bella.  Venus and Earth will still be together, Venus above the Earth as now, because they will both move in one space.”

NOTE:  Goddess Vesta is describing the Ascension through which planet Earth is about to go … Earth will move forward one space.  Those Earth humans who are not ready to ascend will be allowed to transfer to another planet vibrating at the 3rd dimensional level and continue their spiritual evolution into ascension there.  All unfolds according to freewill choice.

Lord Maha Chohan, May 1952: “Each of the seven planets of this solar system must be quickened to enter and sustain itself in the orbit of the graduating planet.  Great Beings are delegated to the task of quickening the vibrations of these planets and We, Whose responsibility rests with the Earth, must prepare this planet and its people to vibrate at the rate of Venus’ present perfection.”

NOTE:  Great Beings are assigned to help all Earth humans who choose to ascend with planet Earth.

God Helios, March 1955: “After we received our Sun initiation, We designed through communication, thought, and loving feeling the planets of this system.  We created them of Light and of Life.  Then through that power of cohesion We drew the great Silent Watcher, Who offered to hold within Her own bosom and body the Light pattern of those planets.  Through the power of cohesion We drew the Seven Elohim, who came and offered to help us to build.  We drew the Archangels and Archaii, the Seraphim and Cherubim.”

NOTE:  “Then God said, ‘Let us make…”  Genesis 1

“The Word was in the beginning, and that very Word was with God, and God was that Word.  John 1:1

Creation takes place through the spoken word (communication), thought, and loving feeling.

Immaculata, July 1954: “When a Sun God and Goddess choose to apply for the opportunity of creating a solar system, They expand Their Sphere of Influence, to the point where the periphery would encompass all the planets, satellites, and all belonging to the system.  Through the fiat, ‘Let There Be Light,’ They spun from Their Beings the universal Light substance for this system.”

Archangel Michael: “When a Central Sun takes the Cosmic Initiation to create a galaxy, opportunity to develop and mature is given to three evolutionary intelligences:  the mankind, Angelic, and Elemental.

The Intelligences inhabiting the Central Sun are known as the Archangels.  They possess the full power of the God and Goddess of the galaxy.  They radiate the Light that fills the system, forming the atmosphere.  In the rhythmic out-breathing of the Central Sun as each lesser Sun is sent forth, seven Archangels and Their Twin Flames go forth to guard all the evolutions of the Sun and its planets.  They guard the Sun, the planets, satellites, the seven inner Spheres of the solar system, mankind, the Angelic Beings and the Elementals.

The Plan is not for Archangels to embody on a planet, which is meant for another type of evolution.

Legions of Angelic Beings came from the Central Sun with Us.  Their purpose of being is to fulfill the Divine Plan which is also Our Plan.  Besides, We have Angelic Beings Who have and are evolving within this solar system who join Our ranks at times, similar to when human beings make the Ascension.  They join the Great White Brotherhood.

The Power of God externalized the universe through Love.  Through Love, Helios and Vesta projected forth every planet just the right distance.  Every solar system of planets and satellites are held by Love within their orbits as the whole galaxy rushes forward through space with lightening-like speed toward a destiny known only by the Godhead.”

NOTE:  Through Love we and all of creation were brought forth.  We live and move and have our being within the energy of Love.  (Acts 17:28)

Master Jesus, May 1956: “[Helios & Vesta] used the same two activities We are endeavoring now to develop among the earnest and sincere students, the power of magnetizing good and then radiating that forth.”

Maha Chohan, September 1953: “The Cosmic Silent Watcher is the first Being Who is called after the Sun of a system decides to create planets.  Into the consciousness, the mind and the body of the Silent Watcher is impressed by the Father and Mother of the system the entire Pattern for every planet.  It is upon the ability of the Silent Watcher to hold that Pattern, Plan, and Blueprint completely unchanging, that the final manifestation depends.  The Cosmic Silent Watcher received into Herself, the Pattern of the planets of this system, the rivers, the lakes, the trees, the mountains of each one, each designed according to the requirements of the evolution that was to evolve upon it.  These seven lesser Silent Watchers were sent forth, Who in turn embodies the Design of just one planet.  They are something like an architect except that it is a living and breathing activity of Love and Light and not merely lines on a blueprint page.”

NOTE:  Read Daniel 4 in which King Nebuchadnezzar’s dream includes the Silent Watchers—referred to here as “holy watchers.”

Great Divine Director, May 1954: “Our Planetary Silent Watcher is known as the great Brooding Presence.  If the Being should lose for a second the pattern of the Earth, it would cause it to return to nothingness.  She has held the concentrated focus of the Earth as given to Her from the Cosmic Silent Watcher, since it was designed, and for millions of years beyond the time originally scheduled for its perfection.  She also held the pattern for every lifestream destined to manifest perfection on Earth.”

Virgin GlobeNOTE:  Try to comprehend the Great Love in which Earth humans are cradled.  Yet, we Earth humans are millions of years behind in our spiritual evolutionary progress toward perfection.

“Be ye perfect as your Father in Heaven is perfect.”  Matthew 5:48

The Master Jesus spoke these words 2000 years ago and still Earth humans appear to have no greater comprehension of His words.


The only reason we can be controlled by lies is that we do not know who we truly are.  We are regularly taught:  you have one body, one life.  How many times daily are we bombarded with the Boniva Advertisement “I have just this one body and this one life?”  And that’s in case we forget what the preponderance of religious observers are taught:  “Only one life to live.”

In anatomy class, we learn about the physical body with no mention of the other bodies that encircle the physical.  Instead, we learn we are our physical body.  We are taught this body was originally conceived when our parents’ egg and sperm united.  We came to life in the womb and were born into the one physical plane life we have been granted.

Philosophy class strives to extend our concept of self.  We were born into an existential life experience in an unfathomable universe.  Religion class proclaims we are “born in sin” and explains life in terms of a three layered universe:  the physical plane, heaven, and hell.  We burn in hell for eternity if we fail to obey the doctrines of a particular religion.  Psychology class teaches we consist of the id, the ego, and the superego.  We possess five senses:  touch, sight, hearing, smell, and taste.  Our perception of life is limited to what we can see with our physical eyes.  We proudly state, on the basis of our intellectual learning, “I’ll believe it when I see it” or “I’m from the show-me state.”

Problem is … 99.9% of Truth is invisible to the physical eyes and therefore not attainable by an intellect that knows only what it can experience physically—in person or vicariously through books, documentaries, etc.  In addition, since we habitually use only about 10% of our physical brain power, we really are ignorant of Truth!

So, who are we … really?

We are “parts” of the “Whole” of omnipresence God—the energy of love that is the intelligent life force permeating all of the cosmos.  Think in terms of God being a circle large enough to encase billions of universes.  Nothing exists outside of God because God is the life energy–The Source of all life.  Physics class teaches that “all is energy moving at varying rates of speed.  That means your car, your computer, your physical body, the walls of your home—all are energy moving at an imperceptible rate of speed.  All energy is God energy.   GOD IS.  WE ARE.

THERE IS NO TIME WHEN WE DO NOT EXIST.  We are taught to believe in birth as the beginning of life and death as the end of it.  It’s a lie, folks!  Birth is simply the “God-Part that is you” taking on a physical body in order to learn from experiences on the plane of duality—where we know both good and evil.  Death is simply the shedding of a physical body and the resumption of life on spiritual planes.  Yes, the physical body returns to dust … but that dust has absolutely nothing to do with who you are.  You are busy with life elsewhere in the cosmos.  You may remain close to Earth in order to watch over your loved ones still in physical body.  You may move on to another planet within the cosmos.  Within the Circle that is omnipresent God, we can live on many planets.  We are Star People.

While we inhabit a physical body on Earth, we tend to lose touch with the realms of spirit.  We forget, but that does not mean that we are solely the physical body.  In fact, the physical body could not live without our etheric body.  The etheric body houses the immaculate conception of the physical.  A good example of this immaculate conception is what we call “phantom limb pain.”  The etheric body houses the energetic pattern of our four limbs, whether or not one or more have been physically amputated.  It is for this reason that we can feel pain where the physical limb once existed.

Our etheric body also houses our chakra system, consisting of seven major energy centers located over our physical glands.  Our chakras connect us with the spiritual realms and act as channels through which the life force enters the physical body.  The example below is a diagram of our seven bodies.  It is easy to see that maintaining our focus on the physical plane (i.e. our physical body) is to ignore 99.9% of who we truly are as a Part of the Whole.  When we settle for knowledge of such a small portion of our true identities, we can easily be controlled by lies.

To study Part II of “So, Who Are We … Really? go to http://www.pathwaytoascension.com/lessons.html   and read Lessons I & II of Basic Metaphysics 101.  Lesson I explains holistic growth–necessary in preparing for 2012 and ascension into higher consciousness.  Lesson II explains our chakra system … see above illustration.  All physical dis-ease begins in our etheric body and chakra system.  Thus, healing must take place within before permanent healing is possible.  You may easily print off these two Lessions so they can be studied in detail.  They are of utmost importance in our spiritual evolutionary process.


Earth humans reside in a matrix of lies or, as metaphysicians would say, a world of illusions.  Many of the concepts upon which we build our lives are merely illusions, as we can see in my 7/13/09 blog entitled “Oh … The Lies We’ve Been Told.”

How are these lies perpetuated?  Do not intelligent people recognize the lie?  I’ll list a few of the methods used in order to give us an opportunity to awaken to what is really going on around us.

1.  Citizens are deliberately “dumbed down” through the use of all major structures within our planetary society.  These structures include: schools and universities, religions, political organizations, and a vast array of “store front” agencies that operate in one way overtly and another covertly.  Because the leaders of these structures have been “dumbed down” themselves, many have no idea as to the real goals of the work they are performing.  A small segment of the world population—the power elite—are in charge of all major decisions throughout the world.  The present chaos in our world represents the crumbling of this covert control.  Finally, citizens throughout this planet are awakening to how enslaved they have been and are demanding change.

An excellent website for learning the truth is Fred Burk’s, a former US State Department language interpreter for high level dignitaries, who resigned his position when the demand for secrecy became too extensive.   Many internationally known authorities now assist Fred in his efforts to expose what is really going on in our world.  http://www.wanttoknow.info/index.shtml

2.  Lies are deliberately created, then proclaimed as truth.  For the majority of citizens, repetitious statements of the lie will soon establish it as truth.  Many of the debates we hear between authorities through the major news media are based on a lie that has been accepted as truth.  A lie can be debated just as easily as the truth.  A perfect example of this is that nations must protect themselves against terrorists.  It is up to each of us to research on our own, to seek the truth, and make our life decisions on a foundation of truth.  “Authorities” may sincerely believe what they are debating because the truth has been withheld from them.  We cannot blame them so much as ourselves for not making the effort to learn what is really going on.

3.  Citizens are deliberately taught to “remain in the box” of codified thought.  Thinking independently results in all types of less-than-pleasant repercussions.  As long as we, the citizens of our planet, consent to be docile, to be taught by the authorities, to avoid independent thinking, we can be controlled.

4.  Earth humans are deliberately controlled by fear:  fear of loss of job, home, position within the community, family, and even life itself.  Yet, the only reason we can be controlled by fear is that we believe the lies, we consent to be “dumbed down.”

5.  The power elite controls the proclamation of truth via ridicule, destroying professional reputations, and a myriad of other methods including death.  A perfect example of this is the cover-up of extraterrestrial presence both on and around Earth.  We must do our own research on sites such as Dr. Steven Greer’s http://www.disclosureproject.org/ and http://www.cseti.org/.  View the DVDs from http://www.fastwalkers.com/ and http://www.galacticdiplomacy.com/

A major reason citizens can be “dumbed down” is because we do not assume the responsibility of researching for truth on our own.  Once we know that our loving galactic family is here to guide us into ascension to higher consciousness, we will no longer allow the cover-ups.

6.  “Dumbing down” is possible because Earth humans do not know who they truly are—child-gods made in the image of our Creator God.  Most, if not all of the religions, have failed to teach the truth about who we are.  Once more, fear is the controlling factor.

7.  An unfailing method of population control is to separate into segments by the use of “issues”—abortion, gay rights, immigration, political parties, religious ideologies, liberal vs conservative … on and on.  A divided nation can easily be conquered while the citizens compete and fight among themselves, oblivious to the covert and overt actions of those in power positions.

8.  Earth humans have been taught that it is the government’s responsibility to protect them.  All sorts of lies have been perpetuated on us under the false statements:  “for national security” … “in our national interests”  … “for our safety” … “to avoid pandemics” … again, on and on.

TRUTH IS:  Once we know who we really are, we do not need the protection or help of any outside agent.  This is the very reason the truth has been withheld from Earth humans.

9.  Lies are easily perpetuated by control of the major media and what they are allowed to report.  Citizens are taught to listen to the authorities.  As a result, when an individual or group attempts to reveal truth, many will respond with:  “What do the authorities say?”  In far too many cases, the authorities are involved in the cover-up, if for no other reason than they fear risking their professional credibility.  Hence, when the media quotes authorities, the truth is seldom revealed.  Truths, such as the presence of extraterrestrials and the spiritual gift of clairvoyance/clairaudience, are ridiculed or represented by using persons/examples who earn our distain by the use they put to their knowledge.  Highly credible professionals are not likely to place themselves in a position of being interviewed by a news media that manipulates both the manner of reporting and the truth.  ABC’s Peter Jennings’ program on extraterrestrials was an example of major media “pretense” at investigating and presenting truth.

9.  The entertainment media is also controlled by the power elite.  Excellent examples of this are the most recent Sunday night mini-series:  IMPACT on ABC and METEOR on NBC.  Both movies appear to be a convoluted attempt to warn Earth humans of the upheaval within our solar system and galaxy that is scheduled by fractal timing to peak around 2012.  Time, as we have heretofore known it, will end on 12/21/2012.  This end to a World Age will arrive either as vast destruction on the planet (as the previous World Ages have ended) OR as humanity ascending into higher consciousness and the creation of a New Earth & a New Heaven.  Earth humans control the outcome by the level of higher consciousness we can achieve between now and 2012.

The movies make no mention of these two probabilities.  Instead, they focus on a solution of using nuclear weapons in space.  Our governments are depicted as totally unprepared to deal with such a time … except by resorting to our armies and nuclear weapons.  The people have NO warning and therefore must be controlled by the Armed Forces.  A formula for martial law emerges.

In my view, the movies are attempting to convince Earth humans of the following:

a)  We are dependent upon the Armed Forces to protect us and save us from a destruction of cataclysmic proportions arriving from the solar system/galaxy.

b)  Nuclear weapons are our only hope of planetary survival within a solar/galaxy system gone awry.

c)  The governments know nothing of impending disaster and react only as the events within the solar/galaxy system are climaxing.

d)  Governments will do their best to protect us and our planet.

e)  In return, Earth humans will respond to the governments’ efforts with great appreciation and pledge to continue supporting expansion of nuclear weapons into space.  “Dumbed down” citizens will fail to recognize the governments’ cover-ups and allow them to proceed as before.

f)  The movies climax with an intended message: “With such late notice of approaching destruction, our governments did the best they could.”

THE TRUTH:  The sooner Earth humans awaken to the need to lift our conscious awareness to higher dimensions, the sooner lies can no longer be perpetuated among us.  The matrix of lies in which we live contains no lasting solutions.  Like attracts like: lies attract more lies … perhaps re-formulated, but still lies.

THE TRUTH:  Earth humans will save this planet only by ascending to a level of unconditional love for all humanity and achieving a lasting world peace.

OUR CHOICE:  We can choose:  1.  Allow ourselves to be led blindly into a destructive end to the present World Age in 2012 … OR …  2.  Assume responsibility for seeking Truth on our own and lifting our consciousness to a much higher level where only Light and Love exist, where no living being suffers.

IT IS TIME to attune to our true identities as child-gods with all the inner spiritual power we need to assist in bringing forth “Heaven on Earth.”  We need not depend on those who lie to us, who hide Truth from us, who ridicule the idea of a better Earth brought about by love and world peace—rather than control by fear.

We, as Earth humans, are perfectly capable of seeking and finding Truth on our own and of implementing that Truth into our lives.  We can allow the old ways to pass away and the new, far better, to emerge as Heaven on Earth.

Hand in hand, we can walk The Path Of Love!



Nancy B. Detweiler, M.Ed., M.Div.


Before we can truly walk the Way of Love, we must awaken to the many lies we have been told by those in power positions.  The most devastating of these lies relate to who we are as human beings living on Planet Earth.  These lies include the following, but are by no means the extent of the matrix of illusions by which we live.

1.  We are separate from God and all of creation.  This lie leaves humankind in a very vulnerable position—at the mercy of a God we do not understand and whatever else life throws our way.

2.  God rewards and punishes us according to our behavior.

3.  We must obey the teachings of our chosen religion in order to gain salvation from a punishing God.

4.  We have only one lifetime on Earth.  When we leave, it is because God has removed us.

5.  Death ends all opportunities to live on Earth and results in our soul being permanently assigned to one of two possible places:  heaven or hell.

6.  Life on Earth is naturally characterized by the “survival of the fittest.”

7.  God creates some human beings with mental, physical, and emotional handicaps.

8.  We are alone in the vast cosmos.  Thus, by inference, life on Earth is the best God could do.

9.  Each human being is the result of intercourse between his/her parents—the uniting of the human sperm and egg.  Therefore, human beings can be killed.

10.  Wars are necessary in order to protect ourselves from our nation’s enemies.

11.  God takes sides in war.  Of course, God always takes the side of those who are right and pray to Him.

12.  God is male and resides high in the sky.  He is the “man in the sky.”

13.  God can do anything God chooses.

The above list of lies—only the tip of the iceberg—are among the major factors in the formation of humanity’s belief system and therefore, humanity’s behavior.

In order to truly walk the Path of Love, we must reconsider each lie and seek the Truth instead.   As long as we subscribe to lies, our motives are skewed.  A good example is our motivation for “good works.”  Good works are among the criteria, taught by religions, that help us get into heaven.  Therefore, the majority of “good works” are performed with a skewed motive:  “I’ll be rewarded in heaven.”  Love based on fulfilling requirements cannot be unconditional love.

I am creating this Path of Love Blog in order to look at the above lies, and more, with the prayer that we may all awaken to the Truth of who we really are … who God is … and our real place within the cosmos.

May we walk together on the Path of Love as we prepare for a glorious emergence into the next World Age, commencing in 2012.  We have so little time in which to transform our world into one of Light and Unconditional Love!
