Hello dear friends: blessings and peace be to you and yours! Possibly, you’ll be able to join our next gathering, if only in spirit. We are currently exploring how to come to the solution of the consciousness puzzle, specifically, how to allow for a peaceful mind as the foundation of our effectiveness. First we need a languaging tool that is ultimate, in light of 1) having passed the test of time (having been in existence for millennia), 2) having passed the test of space (being shared across continents) and 3) having passed the test of mind (being rooted in nature). Sacred geometry fulfills all these conditions. Yet there is more: for this curriculum of ours to assist in merging the visible and the invisible, it would have to speak in elementals, and therefore be aligned to the forces that sustain life. We then stand a better chance to be an Avatar, a word that, in Hindu mythology, addresses the descent of a deity to the earth, and, by extension, the incarnation of our spiritual potential. Should you also relate to cybernetics and the internet as entry points into the spirit world, then you know that an Avatar is a graphical image representing a person. Yet, what does that have to do with your life and the Power to choose Peace?

To begin having a feel for it, consider the children’s cartoon Avatar: The Last Airbender. Set in an Asiatic-like world, the series follows the adventure of a few young heroes, dedicated to bring peace and unity in the world. To help them in their big mission, they received gifts, such as the ability to converse with the classical elements. That ability is termed as “bending,” an art based on the four classical elements, fire, earth, air and water. Each element is treated through certain movements, reminiscent of the qualities of the element itself. The more akin to the element the benders are, the more they are able to use psychic bending. This is to say that, instead of resorting to the aid of any physical movement, they instead use single-pointedness and the pure force of will.

Here is the thing: whether we know it or not, you and I are the “Last Air Bender:” if Air is the element of mind, just like Water goes to our emotional body and Earth, to our physical body, then bending the mind and healing its insanity into the quiet recognition of a world at Peace is not a small thing… Actually, it may be the one reason while we descended to Earth, to realize and model, just as a Hindu deity does, that we are the incarnation of the divine!

Here is the part that is most puzzling: just like the young benders, we have received tools to help us in our big mission to bring Peace in the world and “in the word.” We have been given letters and signs, who directly invoke (or “bend”) the elements to their will. If you’ve ever toned the sound Om (AUM), you know that the sacred mantra is rooted in the most mystical Power there is: the Power of three matrikas – three “mother letters” that originate ALL life. Om calls forth creation, destruction and preservation, by way of gods Brahma, Shiva and Vishnu, who are “benders” of Fire, Water, and Air. This brings us to a giant what if? What if the ability to “manipulate” the elements, that is, to converse with them was grounded in ancient languages? Would being fluent in a language that relates to elemental life give us the possibility to belong and be enough? Moreover, would that bring clarity to the element of Earth, that is, to manifesting our heart’s desire? Indeed, isn’t it curious that Earth would be the one element not invoked by the triplicity of the Om sound?

Should you be interested in feeling how the Avatar of Gen. 1 majorly bent the fire of the Living Word when S/he said “Let there be light!” and soon realized that there was light,” then, by all means, make it elemental to join us and explore with us how XPR fulfills a global vision, as it aligns the elements of the three main cosmologies (Hinduism, Taoism, Judaism) into one practical Wisdom Teaching. We will start at noon EST / 11 AM CST / 9 AM PST this Sunday and will inquire on Simplicity & Universalism (P22) and QKosmic SIX & Elemental (P23) of the New Essenes eBook (please make sure you have downloaded the latest version). If you can join us live this time, great!  If not, you may always listen to the archive or join us for our other New Essene shows via Elevate the Soul radio. Logistics follow.

Until then and beyond, peace be with you,

Maha, Michael & the emPowering NOW team
