Exposition from "A Simple Resolution of Fantasy"

The Divine in us is free. Spirit lives in a perpetual State of Grace. That is the foundation of its freedom. The ego is a prison of judgement that blocks the spirit at every turn. The choice lies in which Master you will serve, Spirit or Ego. The function of grace is to dissolve the Ego and restore Spirit to its proper place. The function of guilt is to keep the ego in bondage to itself. We are slowly culled away from Spirit through the socialization process and ego is an attempt by the Mind to compensate for this separation. As the shadow is to the Body, so Ego is to Spirit.

The Body is a temple. The purpose of the temple is to protect the altar within it. It is the altar within that makes the individual holy, not the temple. The temple and the altar are but two features of the entire individual, operating on two different planes of existence. There are others. The Shadow is the idol, the Body is the Temple, the Heart is the Sanctuary, the Mind is the Scroll and the Spirit is the Altar: together they reveal a nexus of cosmic forces at work beyond our grasp or understanding, yet somehow we as Individuals are still meaningful participants in our lives and the lives of others.

We are set in motion by Five Fundamental Drives: Instinct drives the Shadow, Appetite drives the Body, Passion drives the Heart, Reason drives the Mind and Intuition drives the Spirit.
They are our primary impulses. They each function on their own plane of existence. The the Shadow exists on the Shadow Plane, the Body exists on the Material Plane, the Heart exists on the Ethereal Plane, the Mind exists on the Astral Plane and the Spirit exists on the Celestial Plane. What binds all these bodies into one is the Individual. They operate in tandem and independently on their own planes of existence in service to the perpetuation and growth of the Individual.

God thinks in terms of Eternity, man in terms of time.

In the beginning when God created Adam, he created him perfect. Let us call this state of perfection individuality. He then created Eden within which to place his perfect creation. Eden or Reality, was designed to reflect in totality Adams individuality.
When Adam fell, whatever that may mean-- I personally take it to mean that Adam deluded himself into believing he was separate from God-- he split into the five bodies: The Shadow, the body, the heart, the mind, and the spirit. And Eden being a reflection, fragmented along with him into 5 planes of existence, let us call them the domains of being.. Adam lost his individuality. And the five bodies tumbled and Scattered into the 5 domains and forgot about themselves much less remembering each other or what they have been apart of, and they became lost deep in their respective domains.

The shadow lives in hell. The body lives on Earth. The heart lives in purgatory. The Mind lives in Nirvana. The spirit lives in heaven.

And so God bearing witness to the tragedy of man, unable to split himself into parts being the whole and totality, stretched himself out through the domains of being and issued forth the call for Adam to return home so that he may regain his soul attain salvation and become the perfect individual that he was meant to be. So God took the form of five Ushers of Being to span the five domains, that Adam might clearly hear the call. Satan is the Usher of The Shadow and he Guides Through instinct. Socrates is the Usher of the body and he Guides Through appetite. Muhammad is the Usher of the heart and he Guides Through passion. Buddha is the Usher of the Mind and he Guides Through reason. Jesus is the Usher of the spirit and he Guides Through intuition. We answer the call when we respond to these basic fundamental drives clearly, openly and honestly.



The Individual is the Supreme substance. It exists alongside God within eternity. Every other substantial layer is a partial reflection of the infinite magnitude of the totality of the individual. The Shadow (position), Material (direction), Ethereal (area), Astral (depth) and Celestial (volume) Orders reflect a way of being that expresses a certain dimension of meaning for the Individual. It is the extraction, absorption, understanding and sharing of meaning that drives the Individual to Expressions of Will. The Expression of Will is totally reliant on the functioning and harmonious operation of the hyperengine. (The hyperengine being the activity of the five bodies properly driven). This would seem to contradict the freedom of will. Although it is conditionally instantiated only through Awakening, it is operationally, creatively and behaviourally free in its range .

This Paradox of Being hinges on the existence of the Spirit and the Shadow. How can two expressions of a Divine Order function in total opposition to one another without any knowledge of each other's existence, whereabouts or operational range. The spirit radiates light, it is meta-conscious. the mind manipulates light it is somewhat conscious (initially and for the most part), but is capable of full consciousness were it not so self absorbed. The heart transforms light into sound, it is subconscious. body reflects light and absorbs sound, it is demi conscious. The shadow absorbs light and obliterates sound, it is unconscious. Shadow cannot see Spirit because it hides behind solid things that block the light. it lives in darkness thrives on secrets, and deception. Spirit cannot see Shadow, for it adores the solid things it was meant to shine upon and finds its fulfilment in their revelation. It thrives on truth and clarity. They are absolutely blind to each other. Their only awareness of each other comes through the body, heart and mind attempting to describe the effects of their operation on reality.

It is the responsibility of the Mind to resolve the paradox of Being, the Heart Must have the courage to accept it. and the Body must act out its resolution through behavior. Behavior is a direct expression of meaning and is immediately and equally modified by not only the corporeal pentad but by the individual itself. Often the individual leaves the corporeal pentad at the helm of behavior. [[This means that behavior is expressed as the synergistic operation of instinct, appetite, passion, reason and intuition, all towards separate yet common aims.. To the degree that the individual is conscious of their operation are they harmonious and in concert. Each body behaves in its own direction and responds most immediately to it's own drive. But only the individual itself can give it direction.  The individual receives its inspiration, intuition, insight, instinct and imagination from God.
