“All right. Enough of this! Transparency of time, and times, and oneness are just fine, I’m sure. But my head is spinning. And I’m in the dark about some very simple things. For instance, where exactly are we? When we arrived in this time, we came down into a deep forest in the Sahara Desert, of all places. But then, in some kind of meditative state, we followed you here to this temple city and garden. Which place is real? What is your world really like? What are your people really like?”
“I understand your confusion. But it is truly not important for you to understand too much of this future. That would be outside the scope of our project. It would only serve to distract you from our mission. I will explain some basics though; that is all.”
“OK. Some basics then!”
“We live almost entirely in inwardly projected forms here. The outer physical world is left in a primal, natural state. We maintain physical bodies in order to be grounded in incarnation. But we have found ourselves increasingly drawn into the etheric world—within our individual and collective consciousness. You might call it a dream world. But it is much more than that.
“We had always known that the manifested physical plane is illusory and constantly changing. While being the most concrete and rigid, it is also the most transitory level of all, believe it or not. Contrary to what the mind believes, the denser the form, the farther it is from reality. Once we fully appreciated this, it became clear that our destiny lay in moving into the less dense stratum of incarnation—the etheric plane. Our decision and ability to bring this about was linked to a major discovery—the key to the Threshold. I will explain what this means shortly.
“I have in fact been made aware of this Threshold.” [I interject.] I do look forward to hearing more, once I find out a little more about you. What about your physical bodies? Don’t they need exercise, food and care?”
“Yes. We have our ways of maintaining them in healthy condition and, as I described before, without disease or imbalance. In the larger scheme of things, our cultures determined to stop manipulating the physical plane for many reasons, which I will not elaborate here. Suffice it to say that nature within us chose to preserve nature around us in a more pristine state. This condition enables us to evolve in more harmonious ways that are truer to our internal being. Part of the care and maintenance of our physical bodies is this highly cooperative relationship between our inner and outer forms. 500 years ago you were just beginning to discover this type of appreciation.”
Some of our newest dialogues reflect what you’re talking about. I will pay more attention to them now that I know this.
“In the inner-active state, we continuously create our whole world anew, with full awareness of what we’re doing. Our lives are neither entirely physical nor entirely non-physical. We have generated a new intermediary dimension between the two.”
“What’s the value of that?” [I inquire.] “Why bother incarnating at all, if you’re just going to get out of your bodies again?”
“The simplest answer is that Conscious Evolution is moving us in this direction. It is creating another of its many portals between inner and outer space in this particular way, using our whole civilization. It is continuing to explore the thresholds of its own existence. This is, of course, what the Source-gazers were beginning to see in your time. We have all acquired their talents in my world. It is not the Void, however, that occupies our attention. Rather, it is the Threshold. That is where we have carved out our destiny.”
“This is making me wonder about where you hope to go from here. We talked recently about a species some have called homo angelicus. Do you know of them? Do they really exist? Are you them?”
“Indeed, they do exist. But we are not they. Curious that you should ask though. They do play a very important role in the evolution of both our species. Homo angelicus is one of our grand destinies. It draws all creatures collectively forward in time and evolution. They are the force that drew homo evigilatus out of homo sapiens. And this is another example of the triangulation I’ve been telling you about. Manifestation is following threes. It is the same archetypal phenomenon we use to reposition our time frames.”
“I’m not following.” [I turn to you. You’re sitting silently in contemplation.] “Are you getting this, O?”
Yes. As he speaks, I am resonating more with the revelation.
“Our soul needed to triangulate three positions in order to bring this current project forward. The same kind of triangulation is continuously happening, on a much larger scale, between our three species. Sapiens to evigilatus to angelicus. To manifest the destiny of the one-in-three of us, the conscious linkage among these three must be realized, bridged.
[Old Man continues,] “All through the Cosmos and across myriad dimensions and universes, there are life-forms and cultures, all pursuing their independent realities. Yet at the core, they are all united within Source. More than that, they are integrated energetically in manifestation, as a great interstellar family and network. All forms are interactive and related ultimately; not just in the formless. Each one has an effect on every other. But some have unique connections, with profoundly intimate and creative effects.
“Homo angelicus is one such form for us. It exerts major influence on our evolutionary path. It has always been a step ahead, just out of reach. It seems like it always will be. It is evolving as we are, and accelerating away, paradoxically. When we approach where they have been, we find that they have moved on, into yet deeper, subtler realms of the Threshold. We find ourselves becoming what they once were. But always a step behind. They are our role model as a species—as we are your role model, dear humans!”
