Worlds Within Worlds 02 – Where the Body Meets the Spirit

This article is about that nebulous region where the physical body (or any other material structure in this material universe) blends into its spiritual counterpart… a spirit body (or spirit structure). We’ll consider some worldly and other-worldly principles that might come together and facilitate the blending-together of those bodies—the spiritual and the physical.

.

Before 1990. I used to believe that if we could delve deep into trees and rocks and other material things, down into the tiny world of molecules and atoms and subatomic particles such as quarks and leptons, we’d find tinier and tinier systems… maybe extending downward, inward, forever.

After 1990. After a spiritual awakening (compliments of George Meek) I finally had to admit that all structures are mostly an illusion, even though they seem solid and real to inhabitants of structured universes like ours. Reality exists beyond structure. It is a formless, living force that’s sometimes called spirit or consciousness. So then I deduced that if you could dig into a quark, what you’d actually find is reality… what science calls waves, and what George Meek called cosmic energy… akin to what religions have been calling prana, chi, shakti, and Holy Spirit.

Then I slowly started to digest the Timestream contacts and other information that form the basis of the macyafterlife website… and a new picture started to emerge.

In the past 20 years I think I’ve finally gotten a clearer understanding of “the everything.” Those other two cosmologies (the physical one and the spiritual one) have now sort of wrapped themselves together in my mind to form a new, more accurate picture of how our material world blends into the spirit worlds.

New Cosmology

The picture below is a very simplified view of how the omniverse (I believe) is nested… that is, worlds within worlds within worlds… and how it’s all nested in at least two different ways: physically and spiritually.

A simplified view of “the everything.”

Physical nesting. The series of pictures at the bottom of the diagram show the basic composition of our material realm… a vast universe containing many galaxies, each containing many worlds or planets like the Earth, each planet containing many geological and maybe biological entities, and each entity made up of molecules and atoms. That’s all part of “Level 1” in the 7-level model of the omniverse.

Spiritual nesting. At the same time, everything in the material universe (and the universe itself) has spiritual counterparts or copies or templates that trace inward in vibration toward the central source (a.k.a. God, Allah, Brahman…). So all of the universes are nested: Material universes containing astral universes containing ethereal universes… all containing the source at the center of everything.

Many universes. Each level contains multiple universes, not just the one shown in the picture, and that starts to get a little complicated. (Read more about that… )

Overlapping. All of the universes are superimposed over each other in the same space, like radio signals, each remaining distinct by its unique vibration. So at this point in the discussion it helps to squish the picture together to show that the omniverse isn’t confined to the illusion of “space” as we think of space here on Earth. Instead, it’s all jumbled together in a spaceless, timeless reality that’s hard for us carnal humans to imagine.

The countless universes in the omniverse are all jumbled together in the same space like radio signals, each universe remaining distinct by its vibration… something that’s hard to envision with our five senses and brains, which are only geared to perceive our own physical universe.

When we die.  Nearly all of us will awaken in an astral world after we die. We’ll have a more multidimensional vision at that point, and it’ll be “natural” for us, then, not just to perceive the astral world around us, but also to get glimpses into some of those superimposed worlds around our world… some of them subtler and lighter than our new world, others darker and denser. If we’re lucky enough to awaken in an astral world at level 3 or level 4, we’ll be delighted to see that it’s an absolute paradise. All of the structures (buildings, forests, mountains…) are lighter, brighter and more vibrant than structures on Earth. Nearly all the people there are now in the peak of health and at the prime of life (age 25 to 35 in appearance), regardless of whether they’d died as oldsters, infants or invalids.

Where the Body Meets the Spirit

Okay, now that we understand that these two nesting arrangements (physical and spiritual) are integrated with each other, we can get a feel for how things come together and integrate between a physical structure and its closest spiritual counterpart… the astral structure. For this, we’ll focus on a physical human body and on the molecules and atoms that are its basic building blocks.

Apparently the astral body is close copy of the physical body, limb for limb, organ for organ… down to the level of atoms and molecules.

Here we have physical bodies of five people at different ages, and their corresponding astral bodies. The astral body at level 3 is a copy of the physical body at the prime of life (age 25-35 in appearance). Apparently the astral body has the same organs, cells, and atoms that make up the physical body… but everything in the astral body is of a much finer substance. The atoms are much smaller and there is a great deal more “space” between them… which apparently is why we can’t perceive the spirits around us. They don’t reflect enough physical-world light to be seen by our physical eyes.

The main difference between the physical body and the astral body is that the astral body is of a much finer substance and vibration, making it essentially “invisible” to us carnal humans with our five physical senses.

To complicate matters a bit, there is not just one astral universe (and there’s not just one astral body for each physical human being), but multiple astral universes (and multiple astral bodies) that get finer and subtler as they get closer to the source in vibration. (Referring to the 7-level model, structure begins to disappear at level 5, and by level 6 it is gone.)

Eventually the astral body (as well as other structures) in the astral universes simply gets so subtle that it merges with the formless ethereal universes and disappears altogether. At this point we reach a finer level of reality, beyond the illusions of structure. We become a brilliant energy being or light being.

Hm, that’s a little bit misleading. We don’t really become an energy being. We’re already a brilliant energy being and light being. That’s one of our birthrights of living in the omniverse. Shedding the various physical and astral bodies during our spiritual advancement is like shedding layers of clothing that are simply outer appearances of our true self… the soul.

So spiritual advancement in the spirit realms is simply a matter of shedding the bodies one by one. The entity’s outermost self becomes ever lighter and brighter as it returns home to the source, bringing along a rich collection of experiences and memories that it’s gathered along the way.

Spiritual advancement during a lifetime on Earth involves getting familiar with our spiritual make-up and reawakening the connection between the carnal mind (brain) and the various spiritual minds within us… especially the ultimate inner mind: the soul, which is a piece of the source that rests at the center of our being.

When we die and shed the physical body, all sorts of fascinating possibilities open up for us, and that’s a subject of the next article in the series.

    Just watched Gregg Braden talk about scientific testing discovering that the electrical energy from the heart is five thousand times more powerful than the brain and how the Earths magnetic fields spiked directly after 9/11 which was measured by two satellites…….He talks of the heart energy being a matrix spread out by us all over the Earth. I find the fact that we have to have Astral bodies at all weird although it does seem there has to be ying yang, positive and negative, polar opposites to experience gratitude, love, the divine. If the energy is denser on this astral plane maybe there is a start and an end with each lighter higher vibration going back towards the source. I wonder what the denser, lower realms would look for souls closer to the source? Sorry Sunday morning thoughts

    Thanks, Mark, a dot in the matrix
