Trust God, not people. (The Bible)
Trust Brahman, not your own thoughts. (Vedas)
Trust in Allah, but first tie your camel (Mohammed)
The general consensus is that we need to be a little wary during a lifetime, since Earth is unpredictable, people are unreliable, even our own thoughts can get us in trouble… and about the only thing we can really trust is our personal connection to the source or higher power. Why is that?
I think science has the answer to the puzzle, at least the part about tenuous living in our world.
You can tell a lot about a world by how everyone treats each other. It’s what science calls symbiosis—the interactions of living things sharing a habitat. Here on Terra we have as many as 5 kinds of symbiotic relationships:
- mutualistic (win-win),
- commensalistic (live and let live),
- parasitic (taking what doesn’t belong to you),
- competitive (squabbling over anything that’s up for grabs), and
- predatory (stalking, attacking, and plundering the weak and unsuspecting).
Those last three can be pretty stressful!
What proportion of earthly interactions are the peaceful kind, like the first two on the list, and what proportion are of the stressful kind (parasitic, competitive, and predatory). My guess is that win-win and live-and-let-live relationships far outweigh the others, even if the stressful ones grab more of our attention. Still, there’s a lot of stress in our world.
How about other worlds? Are they as stressful? That’s what we’ll explore today.
I’ve come to believe that parasites, competitors, and predators, while prevalent on Earth, are rare in most other worlds. But let’s see what the evidence has to say. The evidence comes from:
- Advanced spirit communications from “realms in-beyond” or spiritual worlds, carefully conveyed for accuracy (Harsch-Fischbach ITC experiments).
- Extraterrestrial messages from other material worlds that have been received (channeled) through various earthly sources with very similar information about the lives of ETs (Anka, Hamden, Greer, and more… and more….).
So let’s look at life’s symbiotic relationships here on Terra that cause stress, and compare them to relatively stress-free living in other worlds.
Then, in an appendix at the end, we’ll consider effective ways to minimize stress over the course of a lifetime… to feel more peaceful and “at one” with the magnificent, timeless all-that-is.
Symbiosis Throughout the Cosmos
Meanwhile, this is the same pulled-apart diagram of that “all-that-is” that we’ll unravel after the article (in an appendix to tie up loose ends). The diagram shows:
- The source (which represents everything, since it creates and tirelessly nourishes everything with its life-energy),
- Earth (to represent countless physical worlds in material universes at level 1), and
- Spirit worlds, or “in-beyond realms,” that exist in subtler dimensions (levels 2-7) between physical worlds (like Earth) and the source.
If we use our imagination (supported by some pretty good evidence), we can envision:
- Realms rich with life-energy close to the source (levels 7-5) that are mutualistic—win-win—in which everyone and everything are resonant and unified in their attitudes and behavior.
- Worlds of slightly diminished life energy further removed from the source (levels 5-3), where entities gravitate into like-minded groups that coexist peacefully with each other in a respectful, live-and-let-live way.
- Worlds furthest from the source (levels 2-1) that, in rare cases like Earth, struggle to sustain the win-win attitudes as symbiotic relationships sometimes become parasitic, competitive, and predatory.
Here’s some pretty good evidence of those other worlds beyond the Earth that seem to operate mostly in a peaceful, mutualistic-commensalistic fashion.
Mutualistic, Win-Win Worlds
Closest to the source (levels 7, 6, and 5) is a vast realm where light beings and energy beings get along in a resonant, win-win scenario. These are the bright, magnificent realms perceived by visionaries like Dante Alighieri and artists like Gustave Dore (right). We can imagine these vast, ethereal realms spiraling out from the source, devolving ever so slightly along the way.
Back in the 1990s, my colleagues in Luxembourg (Maggy and Jules Harsch-Fischbach) were told by our spirit friends (deceased humans now living at level 3) what it’s like to be in the presence of energy beings and light beings:
“Communication among higher beings is something very special to behold. It is like a reservoir, one big network of communication. Compare it to many computers, except that these are highly evolved, living beings who exchange information as fast as a network of computers. If you speak to one of these beings, all other higher beings are also simultaneously informed of this conversation and at the same time are aware of your entire personality. Since they have no secrets from each other, one can only get closer to them by being absolutely sincere. Insincerity is alien to them. Nothing remains hidden in their dimension. You sometimes forget in your physical world that sincerity plays a most important part over here.” (read more… )
So if there are mutualistic worlds, they’re probably at levels 7 and 6, closest to the source.
Commensalistic, Live-and-Let-Live Worlds
There are many kind, resonant cultures that interact with our world peacefully and quietly, behind the scenes, to help and support humanity toward a bright future. Most of them are spiritual cultures from level 3 and above who flourish in parallel, non-material universes and dimensions, but many of them are material cultures—extraterrestrial civilizations—who share our Milky Way galaxy here at level 1.
Fine Spirits Who Support Earth
The same spirit friends of “Timestream Spirit Group,” who told us about ethereal beings (levels 5-7), also told us about their own world and their lives at level 3, a paradise inhabited by many of our ancestors. Again, most of the information came through the equipment of my friends and colleagues in Luxembourg—Maggy Fischbach and Jules Harsh, especially after we formed INIT (the International Network for Instrumental Transcommunication) in 1995.
Here are some first-hand descriptions of the commensalistic world called Eden, or Marduk, at level 3, where many of us will awaken after we die:
While level 3 is a product of the human mind, it is as much a reality as is planet Earth. People whose ideas and beliefs agree with each other come together here in groups and form one unity. This unity is the stepping stone to level 4. After crossing into the fourth dimension, also called The Summerland, the human being is relieved of the laws of reincarnation.
To establish this contact with you we have to get close to your world and adapt ourselves as much as possible. In the process we come to resonate with many of your thoughts and attitudes. At the same time, the members of Timestream are already approaching the border lines of higher consciousness at the fourth level.
Sometimes we feel pulled into the beauty of the fourth level, and it’s only the thoughts of our ITC responsibilities with Earth that tear us away, so we can return to the ITC station on the third level. Our experiences and knowledge from the fourth level might be useful to you.
We live along the banks of the River of Eternity along with those who were once living on Earth. There are animals here. Vegetation varies from algae to mammoth trees. Many buildings are made of wood. Some people or animals wake up here already reborn into bodies at the prime of life. Others come to us as old people and turn young again after the regenerating sleep. Why there are such differences, we do not know. At the end of the growth or rejuvenation process most people will be 25-30 years old in appearance. Animals also will be at an age of vitality and well-being, since ethical factors are not involved here. Damaged tissue or broken bones regenerate just like wounds heal in your world but much more perfect. Lost limbs will regrow. The blind will see again, and so on. The color of your hair and skin cannot be changed and will be the same as it was during your Earth life. Here in the river world, beings arrive from all levels of life. Gnomes and giants live together with formless beings and the former human inhabitants of planet Earth. Doubles who were joined but lived on parallel worlds do not live together at the same area of the river.
So that’s a glimpse of our spiritual home at level 3, a commensalistic paradise without parasites, competitors, or predators.
Extraterrestrials of the Alliance
There’s some compelling evidence that describes a Galactic Alliance of advanced cultures who collaborate peacefully, observe many worlds (including Terra), and make efforts to welcome more and more planetary cultures into their alliance.
The evidence comes from messages shared with our world by members of that alliance, especially an exploratory group calling itself the Ashtar Command. The messages in most cases were channeled, mind-to-mind, from ETs to psychically sensitive men and women.
While channeled information is often suspect among us humans, it’s the normal mode of communication among ETs, and it’s a challenge for them to share information with us using our words and languages. Hence the channeled information.
Here are some of their key messages, shared mentally with many sensitive people in our world.
- Members of the Alliance are somewhat interdimensional—beyond our concept of time and space. They don’t concern themselves with the past. They live in the moment—part of collective mind that’s evolving. Everyone’s simply a part of that evolution. Everyone’s in harmony.
- Most of the communication between individuals and between cultures is a silent, mind-to-mind sharing of information. The minds have to be resonant (peaceful, receptive…) in order for the communication to happen, a condition that presents a challenge when communicating with people on Earth, who slip easily into fear, deception, sadness, anger, and secrecy. ETs of the alliance say, simply, “Such emotions do not serve us.”
- A relatively small population (around 250 million, in some cases) live on their home planets (for example, a planet called “Essassani” in the Zeta Reticuli system), while many others live in “cities” aboard massive ships that explore many planets. They’ve established supportive, live-and-let-live relationships with planetary races of many of those worlds.
- Many galactic races share the goal of oneness within each race and among races. Because “all energies come from one place, one source energy,” they all long to be reunited with the “whole.”
- Some galactic races want humanity on Earth to join them, once we’ve become a peaceful, friendly, resonant species that can live and let live, at which point we’ll have achieved international and intercultural unity while aspiring to interstellar (or galactic) unity.
Meanwhile, the ET alliance tries to be patient with our world as we contend with our parasitic, competitive, and predatory qualities here on Earth. They hope we don’t destroy ourselves and our world with our stressful symbiotic relationships….
Earth’s Stressful Symbiosis
Parasites are sneaky, competitors can be ruthless, and predators are brutal. These are the aspects of Earth life that set our world apart from most of the cosmos, which seems to flourish mostly on win-win, live-and-let live behavior among entities and worlds.
Parasites, in my view, simply take useful and important things that don’t belong to them—things that belong to someone or something else. It could be mosquitoes, lampreys, and mistletoe sucking vital fluids from their hosts… or swindlers, thieves, blackmailers, insider traders, racketeers, and embezzlers taking money and property from others. Or drug dealers, pimps, casino owners, opioid pharmaceutical companies, and alcohol and tobacco manufacturers, who seek out addicts, urge their weaknesses, and take their money.
In nature it’s usually about stealing life-energy, which is plentiful in the blood, sap, chlorophyll solution, and other vital fluids of the hosts. In society it’s usually about stealing money or its equivalent, since money is a sort of artificial life-energy that society uses to create and nourish the social system (a subject of the next article). In world affairs, parasitic behavior usually involves strong nations stealing from weaker nations—Nazi Germany taking iron and coal from the Alsace-Lorraine region then plunging headlong into Europe, America taking oil from the Mideast*, China taking Tibet, or Russia taking Ukraine…. Parasitic behavior.
*Many Americans believe their country was buying Mideast oil, not taking it, but it typically doesn’t take a 21-year war costing $6.4 trillion to make a purchase. Countries, like people, often have ways of justifying their problematic behavior.
Competitors vie for things they consider useful or important. Struggles in nature are often about food, mating rights, or territory. Competition in society is often about fame, fortune, power, jobs, customers, subscribers, girlfriends or boyfriends… or sometimes just for hormonal gratification, as in the case of games and sports. In world affairs it’s usually about nations struggling for autonomy, power, and economic advantage, often at the expense of planetary well-being. Competitive behavior.
Predators stalk, attack, abuse, and often (in the case of carnivores) kill and eat their prey. I think of that as the most basic form of predatory behavior—killing and eating prey as a means of assimilating the life-energy of the victim.
In nature, it’s usually about food, but in society the predatory pattern spins off into rape, assault, murder, plunder, arson, poisoning, terrorism, hostile takeovers, and other situations in which the prey (or his property) is badly abused, and maybe killed or destroyed, but not consumed.
Modern society has “civilized” the killing-and-eating process with massive farms, ranches, and slaughterhouses, but it’s still, essentially, predatory behavior.
That basic predatory component of Terra (living things killing and eating each other) is the most brutal component of terrestrial living. It’s what sets us apart most dramatically from the win-win, live-and-let-live symbiosis of the vast cosmos. In fact, I’ve come to believe it’s what caused “the Fall of Man” that western religions refer to. (There’s good evidence to support that, as I explain in the appendix below.)
So that’s symbiosis in a big nutshell—from the mutualistic (win-win) and commensalistic (live and let live) relationships throughout the cosmos, all the way down to the parasitic, competitive, and predatory living conditions that pop up now and then on Planet Earth.
# # #
And now we can tie up a few loose ends:
- Minimizing stress over a lifetime.
- The fall of man.
- Other worlds that might have parasites, competitors, and predators?
- The big picture.
Wash Away Stress, Touch the Source
There are ways to minimize stress safely and effectively over the long term. They all involve fostering conscious contact with the source, since that intimate relationship between a living thing and the source is the most vital and reliable win-win relationship anywhere in the cosmos.
Social gatherings can wash away stress if they have important qualities like these:
- They include, encourage, and maybe teach personal techniques for making conscious contact with the source and its life-energy (God, Allah, Brahman, the universal life force, holy spirit, prana, etc.), and
- They focus on win-win, live-and-let-live behavior in the group and in the world. (They don’t dwell on parasitic, competitive, or predatory impulses that stir up fear and animosity and cause stress.)
Heart Meditation—My Personal Favorite
For centuries, Eastern mystics have called the heart the seat of the soul—the “soul” being the source as it rests at the center of our being. So it stands to reason that by moving our awareness—our consciousness—from the head to the chest (an area around the heart and solar plexus), we can more easily establish conscious contact with the source.
The heart meditation I do is a fairly simple process. I just move my mind, my “self,” from the head to the chest.
Especially at first, it involved closing the eyes and relaxing, letting the mind slowly clear away its thoughts, then encouraging it to get settled in the chest. It didn’t come naturally, since the mind “feels more at-home” in the brain with all of its drama.
I tried various techniques that helped, like sitting in an imaginary boat on a paradise lake, “dropping anchor” to the heart, and slowly pulling myself down through the nourishing fluid. Or moving my awareness to the back of the head, then down along the spine like an elevator to the chest area. Or repeating, silently in my mind, a simple, effective statement, “Focus … from the heart…. Gratitude … for the lifetime…. Thy will … be done….” [The words are spoken (silently in the mind) on the out-breath, the three dots (…) indicate silence bertween words during the in-breath.] This “mantra” helps push aside distracting thoughts while focusing on the process of connecting consciously with the source.
Once I get to the heart, my breathing becomes deep and automatic, and my body feels more coherent. Sometimes, at first, my body went through some gentle jerks, indicating that a major shift of some kind had occurred when I moved to a finer state of consciousness.
In recent years, resting in the heart seems to unravel the complicated dramas in my life and lets everything come back together more coherently.
After doing it daily for a while, it became a more automatic process that I can do almost anytime to get myself into a more relaxed state.
While that heart meditation works well for me, others can probably find techniques that work well for them by relaxing the brain into an “alpha state,” in which the mind is set free to explore nonmaterial realities (levels 3-7)… ultimately allowing them to foster conscious contact with the source and its pure life-energy.
The Fall of Man
Our INIT group received this message from The Seven higher beings as computer text in the 1990s, in response to a question posed by our Luxembourg member Maggy Fischbach about a Christian concept, the “fall of Man”:
The “fall of Man” is a legend handed down from Greek mythology. It was maintained by the “Mysteries” and found its way into the schools of philosophy during the Greek classic period. Humans were considered to be descendants of Titans who had killed the young Dionysus-Zagreus. The burden of this crime weighed heavily on them. In a writing by Anaximander it is said that the unity of the world was destroyed by a prehistoric crime. In reality, these legends are based on a factual incident: the downfall of the civilization you often call Atlantis (also known by other names). This downfall was brought about by the descendants of the last inhabitants of Marduk (Eden) who became marooned on planet Terra. This downfall came through reliance and blind trust in a massive technology…. You see, there was a “fall of Man,” but different from what you imagined. We know that many among you will not believe us. This does not bother us. We know that this is how it was. Today you may consider it science fiction, but you too will one day, once more, recognize its validity. The next time we shall speak of more pleasant things.
That ITC contact boggled my mind (as did several other messages from The Seven). I quickly documented it and moved it to the back burner to simmer for, well, about 20 years. Finally, just recently, reader Kate in England did some research on the subject and commented, “They ate Zagreus!” So I did some research of my own and found that the message did indeed refer to a legend of Titans killing and eating “gods.”
As best I can figure, the gods themselves were our most ancient ancestors—superhuman Edenites who colonized Earth after the destruction of their home planet Marduk or Eden (which I believe circled our sun in an orbit between Mars and Jupiter, where the asteroid belt is today). The Titans were hybrid offspring of the Edenites, intended to take over the stewardship of Earth… until they botched things up badly in the times of Atlantis, when megalithic architecture was springing up all around the world.
Long story short, Zagreus was a young god (Edenite) who apparently got eaten by the Titans, who assimilated the child’s considerable life-energy. And the rest, as they say, is our troubled symbiotic history, as living things eating each other to steal their life-energy became the norm here on Terra.
Mighty speculative, but based on messages like that one from The Seven and various “hard” evidence in our world (megalithic ruins) and in our solar system (the asteroid belt and Oort cloud), it’s the story that makes the most sense to me.
Other Worlds with Parasites, Competitors, and Predators?
Terra, with its parasitic, competitive, and predatory relationships, is almost certainly an exception to the rule of mutualism and commensalism that fills the omniverse. Are there other exceptions as well? Apparently so.
Evidence suggests that there are troubled spirits inhabiting a sort of shadow world that enshrouds our planet, and there are “abductor” ETs from other planets who visit us. Both seem to have parasitic, competitive, and predatory aspects to their personalities.
- Troubled spirits. Across the millennia (probably since the rough times in Atlantis), a spiritual shadow has formed around Earth. That dark spirit realm is a repository of parasitic, competitive, and predatory behaviors and attitudes that some Earth inhabitants carry along with them after they die. There’s no place in the vast, win-win, live-and-let-live omniverse where those attitudes can fit in, so they remain stuck in Earth’s shadow… and can sometimes have unpleasant influences on us when we give into our fears, belligerence, addictions, and other damaging emotions and behaviors that attract them to us.
- Troubled ETs. There are also, apparently, physical planets in our galaxy that are inhabited by Reptoids, lesser Zetas (abductor greys), and other struggling and contentious ETs who are driven largely by self-interest. Attracted by Terra’s stressful symbiosis, they sometimes visit our world, behind the scenes and imperceptible to our senses and sciences. They can sometimes abduct unsuspecting humans in their sleep—like lab rats—for purposes of cross-breeding and other unsettling experiments. There are lots of reports online about these abductions, which most of us prefer to disbelieve and ignore. Though I suspect many of the grueling accounts are real.
But all of those exceptions seem to be rare in the galaxy and beyond, where mutualism and commensalism are the rule.
Putting It All into Perspective
Life-energy from the source creates and nourishes everything everywhere, and everything’s really superimposed over each other in a way that’s hard to envision.
Earth in the diagram represents all planets in our physical universe, and the man at level 1 represents all entities in our universe. Every physical thing everywhere has a similar spiritual composition as depicted in the pulled-apart diagram.
Regardless of what physical planets we’re talking about (whether nearby Mars or Venus, or the countless planets in countless other star systems), most of their inner worlds (levels 2-7) are probably flourishing with life, even if their outermost planets in our physical universe (level 1) may seem “lifeless” to us.
To understand this mind-boggling, superimposed condition of the cosmos, it helps to pull it all apart into those 7 arbitrary levels shown in the diagram… the way we might dump a big bucket of uncut diamonds onto a table and divide them up into 7 little piles, from the smallest diamonds to the largest.
It’s easier for us humans to understand things when we can count, weigh, and divide them (mene, tekel, upharsin)…
… unless, of course, that meticulous process of measuring becomes an obsession (the way we humans sometimes get obsessed with our money)…
Then we’ve got problems. (More about that in the next article about money).
