COMING OF THE BRIDEGROOM
For at least a decade now, the divisiveness and tension between people around the world has continued to build like the pressure under a massive volcano. Recently, war has broken out between Russia and Ukraine; leaders all over the world have taken sides and even publically antagonized those who do not agree with their own position, causing a sense of anxious apprehension within the global population.
For the last 2 years, the world has suffered through a global pandemic that many scientists, medical professionals, and doctors believe was man-made, not to mention the growing awareness that the vaccine being pushed by governments around the world is proving to be as harmful as the virus. Since the medical evidence is contrary to the governmental narrative, free speech is being suppressed globally. There is an atmosphere of, “What could go wrong next?”
This building tension follows the universal principle of Order and Chaos, which means this cycle of Chaos we are experiencing will continue to build until it completely exhausts itself in some grand finality and only then will it transition back to Order. This escalating chaos is evident in the US by the apparent “government approved anarchy, crime, and violence” we witness daily in the streets of our cities; apparent since no one is being held accountable. Our borders are wide open and, according to reports and eye-witness accounts, record numbers of illegals are entering along with massive amounts of deadly fentanyl from China. Many experts fear terrorists have also been slipping through.
The “signs of the times” going forward look very bleak, to say the least. From my years of studying the evolution of consciousness and the structures of consciousness in human evolution, I believe this to be an inevitable macro-awakening from third dimensional to fourth dimensional consciousness (See: Perception). A transition of this magnitude in the collective consciousness of humanity would be considered as a preordained cosmic schism which would separate those willing to follow the spiritual path revealed to us in Jesus Christ and those willfully clinging to the “illusory enticements” of materiality.
Such cosmic awakenings are usually preceded by a period of “darkness before the dawn.” These dark periods consists of traumatic events which will “shake the very foundations of the world,” that is, shake and break the underpinnings of our collective worldview which desperately holds onto the preservation of: life as we have known it; our cultural and social norms; the country’s infrastructure which sustains us; trust in the people around us; and faith that our religious beliefs will carry us through these troubled times. However, eventually, people will recognize they are clinging to a “dead carcass,” a fading reality. Christ reminded us that “this is not our world;” and in this chaotic finality, there will come a time when we must all let go of our life and follow the Spirit into the Oneness of life in Christ in the fourth dimension.
The biblical prophecies regarding the last days of the world as we have known it can be found in Matthew 24. How close we are to the transition from chaos to order is unknowable. As it says in the bible, only the Father knows that day and time. This transition is explained in 1Corinthians:15, “…in that day ye shall all be changed in the twinkling of an eye;” this indicates there will be a collective spiritual revelation for those who follow Christ. From my research, meditations, and spiritual experiences, I know this transformation will take place.
As the peace, prosperity, and individual freedom the world has known since the end of WWII continues to rapidly fade away, many people speak of the end times. What is emerging presently appears to be more closely related to fear and uncertainty as a result of the willful destruction of our cultural norms, the absence of moral values, the gradual loss of personal freedom from corporate and technological surveillance as well as theft of our personal data, and the incremental swing of the educational system toward socialism, wokeism, and the sexual grooming of our children. In reality, this is evil working in people who are willfully attempting to capture and control the world and its people. This turbulent, irrational, and evil period in history in which the world seems to have lost its way is the exhaustion of Chaos.
The Return of Christ
In these troubled times, keep in mind Matthew 24:30 which says, “Then the sign of the Son of Man will appear in heaven, and all the tribes of the earth will mourn, and they will see the Son of Man coming on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory.” There are many Christians who eagerly await this event. However, I would like to present something which is overlooked by many Christians in regard to the second coming; that is, what we as followers of Christ need to do NOW in preparation for this event. The spiritually awakened Christian plays a very important role in the second coming of Christ. In fact, the truly awakened disciple helps to prepare the way for this Second Advent.
All the content on the SC website is relevant to such a spiritual awakening. Every paper on this site stresses the importance of taking personal responsibility for one’s spiritual life by: detaching from the enticing and meaningless worldly illusions; learning what internal Christ-realization is and how to experience it; practicing daily meditation and learning to sit quietly and peacefully in God’s presence; being responsive to and aware of the Holy Spirit. We must actively prepare ourselves for this upcoming event and Matthew 25:6-8 gives us clear direction, “And at midnight there was a cry made, Behold, the bridegroom cometh; go ye out to meet him. Then all those virgins arose, and trimmed their lamps. And the foolish said unto the wise, give us of your oil; for our lamps are gone out.”
The preparation by the souls described in these verses as virgins, is referring to purified souls; those who have lived a spiritual life. In all meditation systems, both Eastern and Western, the pineal gland is considered as the light of the body or the spiritual eye; Jesus refers to this when He said, “Keep thine eye single and thy whole body will be filled with light.” In meditation, light, focused-breathing and virtuous thought circulating in the ventricles of the brain around the pineal gland stimulates the spiritual eye, making it secrete an oily substance which revitalizes the body and awakens spiritual sight. This is the “oil of the lamp” which lights the body referred to in the parable above. However, the virgins in the parable who had no oil are those who were distracted by the world and did not maintain their spiritual practices or their purified lives.
In today’s world, there are not many people who meditate or think about transforming their natural lives into the spiritual life, so much needs to be done to help prepare the way for Christ’s return. In this synchronistically-connected life, it may very well be the conscious awakening of people and the intensity of their devotion which actually triggers the event. Recently, I read Original Meditation: The Aramaic Jesus & the Spirituality of Creation and this author seems to agree with me that humans play an active role in Christ’s return. He writes, “The entire creation story is living and active, waiting for enough human beings to activate it in their own awareness and so bring the divine dispensation back to earth in an outer way. The ‘son of man’ which some scholars translate as ‘son of Adam,’ would be this person who enfleshed the original divine image of creation – Holy Wisdom’s son come to activate the power of sacred beginnings now.”
There are some reading this paper who are Children of Light, but may not realize it. The Children of Light need to awaken and consciously take responsibility for their personal salvation so they are ready to serve others when perilous times befall us. This is accomplished by consciously connecting with the presence of Christ within by cleansing and purifying the psycho-cognitive soul through the transformative experience of Christ meditation and connecting with the Sacred Heart as described in Stage 3 Meditation. Otherwise, as the world sinks deeper and deeper into darkness and chaos, many will find their faith severely tested and their love growing cold. We all need to focus on getting our own house in order first and foremost! This is what it means to prepare for the bridegroom!
Meditation is an internal and personal communion with the presence of God, the Father, Jesus Christ and the Holy Spirit. Stages 3 and 4 Meditation prepares one to experience the reality that we are created in the image and likeness of God. Jesus Christ died on the cross, He resurrected His body and ascended so we ALL could realize that we are both human and divine just as He is; this cosmic transformation of consciousness makes possible humanity’s resurrection. He wants us to understand who He is and believe He truly represents a state of divinity which also exists within each one of us. He wants us to awaken to that holy state within and become Christ-like. This is preparing for the bridegroom!
What I am suggesting is that each one of us meditates on being one with the divine image of the resurrected Christ; this is the divine human Adamic matrix Jesus embodied and resurrected. Through this divine human matrix, we can connect with the knowing and feeling of oneness which exists in this present moment with the Father and with all the brothers and sisters of Christ who are also awake within. We are here and we are one in Christ; we just have to become conscious of it in order to bring the Divine Light into the world and prepare the way for God’s will to be done in earth as it is in heaven. Be an active follower, seeking a true Self-realization experience in Christ (See: Introduction to Christ Meditation). The Church of Christ, the church without walls, will come alive when each of us gains the knowledge of our divine Self within and manifests it completely in life by being transparent to God and doing His will. God Bless you all.
“I pray that out of His glorious riches He may strengthen you with power
through his Spirit in your inner being, so that Christ may dwell in your hearts
through faith. And I pray that you, being rooted and established in love,
may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp
how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know
this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled
to the measure of all the fullness of God.” (Ephesians 3:16-19)
