Within esoteric, religious and
spiritual traditions it is often said there are higher and lower
powers, higher and lower forms of energy, high vibrations and low
vibrations and the like. It is also said that if the human
mind could capture the mind of God, the human
mind would shatter. Similarly it is said the human cannot handle the
higher powers/Higher Powers of creation for we would simply vaporize
and/or burn up in the flow of that power.
In one way, such statements are true. In another way they are
completely wrong. Energy is energy. Consciousness is consciousness.
Consciousness awakens as a result of a flow of energy. Simply said,
if you have a large flow of energy, consciousness needs a
perspective to handle such a flow. If you have a much less flow of
energy, the perspective consciousness needs is quite different. If
the flow of energy is too great for the perspective of consciousness
something has to give. Either the flow of energy needs to be reduce
or the consciousness shatters its perspective.
The important point is that quality or essential composition of the
energy does not change, only the amount. It also does not mean one
perspective held by consciousness is better than another. It just
means consciousness will have a different experience of creation for
it awareness spans a great amount of energy. It is only our
mind and what we think and believe that has created all the
confusion about energy, consciousness and
what serves and doesn’t serves us. The issue is we are
infinitely creative being and the question is, “What allows us
to expand into the
infinity of our own being?” We can either expand
into the infinity of our own being and experience all of Creation or
we can segment Creation to experience only a portion compatible with
the perspective we hold.
This issue is presented rather well in the story
Moses and the Dancing Light. In the story, Moses experiences a
dancing light and does not understand. The light then forms into
symbols. Moses still does not understand. The light then forms into
the letters of the alphabet and Moses still does not understand.
Finally, the light forms into words and Moses understood and wrote
the Torah, the sacred book of Jewish
In essence, the energy of the light has been “stepped” down three
levels and we don’t know how many levels the energy was stepped down
before Moses perceive it as light. Many individual can just know
things long before they need to materialize or be perceived in some
type and kind of experience.
What is occurring here in the story of
Moses and the Dancing Light is the energy of
is simply being “stepped” down into a form that can be perceived by
a particular consciousness. In this case the consciousness of Moses.
In essence what the Divine did was begin to “step” down the energy.
That is, as the energy takes on form, some of the power available in
the energy becomes unavailable.
It is like the electricity that comes into your home. What was
available in the light was “stepped” down much like the way we
“step”down electrical energy. That which is in your home has been
“stepped” down from a more powerful form of the same energy that is
carried in the transmission wires. There is a transformer near your
house that takes the more powerful energy and “steps” it down to a
power that is more useful and manageable in your home. Analogously
it is the same in what we can achieve with the electrical energy as
it exist before the transformer outside our house is much different
than what we can achieve with the energy once it is “stepped down”
for use in our house. This fact does not make one better than
another. Each just creates different experiences which we then judge
as one being more desirable than the other.
When it is realized consciousness and energy are different forms of
the same things, we an being to see there is also a “stepping”down
that occurs in consciousness. Spiritual traditions have talked about
increases awareness and/or
levels to Creation. That to which they refer are only forms of
consciousness that can channel larger and/or different magnitude
flows of energy.
In a different awareness, Moses would have perceived the energy
differently. But that does not really matter. What matters is how
Moses perceived what he perceived for that is the starting point for
the action Moses takes. The same is true for all of us. We adopt a
particular perspective within a particular environment and have an
experience of the energy of
We then interpret that experienced with the
mind we have based on our past experiences. We think we
experience the reality of what is when in fact we only experienced
our mind and what it has experienced. To experience reality for what
it is, we need to take the perspective of a
detached witness and
to the flow of energy we feel as it exists.
The story of
Moses and the Dancing Light nicely shows much of what we
experience in Creation is much like using an electric blender, an
electric mixer or an electric carving knife. As a human, we have a
choice by the perspective we hold in
mind. Choosing a perspective is analogous to the appliance we
will choose to use. We can argue all that we wish as to which
appliance is better for chopping and mixing things. There are tasks
that one does better than another. But in the end, they all run off
our household electrical current that has been stepped down by the
transformer outside our house. That is they all run on the same
energy flow in the house. If we want to use the current that exist
outside the house before the transformer, we need to use different
appliances and have a different perspective.
In this regard, what can be achieved with any written or orally
transmitted tradition is much less that if the light which gives
rise to the written oral tradition is understood and we
dance with the light. Much can achieved with a
written tradition that is not fixed into a form by the use of vowels
as that described by the “sacred” Torah in topic”
Moses and the Dancing Light.” However, much more is possible
when we work with the light itself.
It is obvious the ancient Jewish sages were very wise and are to be
commended in desiring to keep things ambiguous by not allowing
vowels to be put with the consonants. As seen in the Taoist
references in that discussion the ancient Taoist sages made the same
observation. However, to fully understand the depth and breadth of
creative power and creative ability available to us, we need to learn to
work with the dancing light - we need to work with the
non localized energy of
We need to work with the energy as it is and dance with it before it
is “stepped down” into a given form. But to do that we need a
different perspective, we need a different way of thinking and
believing. We need to return to the dancing light, beyond tradition
and beyond form. We need to
step out of mind
for it is there we will find the true source of wisdom and our
All existing traditions and
schools of thought that depend on words,
whether orally or written, including all that is written here, are
just another facet of the an infinitely facets crystal of creation.
Any one facet of the crystal is equal to, and no better than, any
other. In this regard, the tradition initiated by Moses is no
different than any other, including this material. Some schools of
thought seem to shine more light than others, but they are still a
step or two down from the light and
creative life energy
sustaining creation that is flowing within our being.
The question can be asked if what is stated here is saying that we
are capable of an understanding even greater than Moses and other
ancient sages and that which is captured in the Torah and the other
spiritual traditions? The answer is, yes. But most importantly, we
find this understanding by going within and following the
creative life energy that flows within our being before we
channel it into specific patterns that we call words and thoughts.
It is to work with that understanding and knowledge that lies within
the form of the creation. It is to see the metaphor of Creation and
creativity is the language of consciousness. The life we
experience and the world we experience with that life is a
communication of consciousness. They are the attempt by our
consciousness and the
consciousness within/behind Creation
to communicate who and what they are.
Within the realization that we
desire to work with the energy before
we create words and thoughts, it is hard to talk about what we
should do. To say, “step out of mind”
is easier said than done. The recommendation made here is to use the
our creativity sacred no matter what it looks like.
Give our self permission to return to a state of
creative play and open ourselves to feeling to learn how our
internal guidance works with the intention of eventually
to what we feel. We need to learn to discern what we feel and allow
our feeling to become our
internal compass. You may appear a little crazy to the world but
we will be learning there is
an alternative way to live life. A way that is much more
creative and internally satisfying which can provide and
fullness of being and an
which never runs dry.
However, nothing which can be said can convince you of this or cause
it to happen in you. Creation and creativity is an experience. We
have to choose to act and
do our own experiments. Creation is a
experiential subject and not something that can really be
learned in books.
