Dear friends – I have been connecting the synchronistic dots that are like nourishing breadcrumbs on the path – affirming the work of the 10:10 Thought-Seed – a collective mediation done every day at 10:10 AM/PM, co-creating an imagination of the ‘Earth Becoming a Sun’ – that many of us have been holding since around this time last year. If you haven’t yet tuned in, it was part of my 1st offerings for the ‘I Think Speech’ podcast: Thought-ExperimentEgregoreProject Thought-SeedThe 10:10 How to.

Mark 14:51-52

In the evolution of humanity thru the Christ impulse, the seed for the future spiritualization of the Earth was planted. We are given a clue in the appearance spoken about in Mark 14:51-52, of the mysterious ‘young man’ whose outer garment is pulled away in the garden of Gethsemane at the arrest – the commandment of Christ’s sacrificial deed. This is an unveiling of a future cosmic process in which the human being, as well as the Earth Being Herself, will gradually completely spiritualize our physical aspects – allowing us to be transformed into a New Sun.

A friend wrote me the other day talking about a study conducted by German researchers at the University of Kassel showing that the area around the heart of an average person emits about 20 photons of light per second. A person who meditates from their heart center, sending love & light to others – emits an amazing 100,000 photons per second. That’s 5000 times more than the average human being. Numerous studies have shown that when these photons are infused with a loving & healing intent, their frequency & vibration increases to the point where they can literally change matter, heal disease, & transform negative events.

The Heart also loves, feels, thinks & remembers – communicating with other hearts. Pulsing continuously – each beat throbbing with impressions – which we must control thru our right thinking – moving them thru every organ of our body & out into the etheric, & astral realms we all share. ~

It is far more full & beautiful than what modern science would have us believe. A beyond the cellular symphony that is the very essence of our being – it is a magnetic & radiating vortex – a tool of human evolution, in the creation of the New Sun of the New Jerusalem.

Cresting in heart-thought with you…

  1. Dear Hazel, is it possible to send me a link or some other thread where I can look into this amazing research from Kassel on the heart and its various emissions of photons depending on activity of consciousness.
    thank you for the continuous stimulus you give , that I may widen my thinking and feeling. Caroline

  2. It can be shown that the pretext for the “young man” concerns the verses from 32 to 42 in this same chapter. Jesus in Gethsemane.

    51 A young man was following Him, wearing nothing but a linen sheet over his naked body; and they seized him. 52 But he pulled free of the linen sheet and escaped naked.

    It is interesting that the Gospel of Mark is based on the testimony of Peter to the mysterious John Mark, who would write down what Peter came to remember of his experiences in following the Christ. Thus, only Peter is known to have seen this “young man” dropping the linen sheet and escaping naked. In chapter 16, Mary Magdalene sees Jesus again wearing this linen sheet at the empty tomb.

    Now, the key to all of this actually comes in the Gospel of John, chapter 18, when Christ confides to Peter, just before being taken into custody, the following words: “The Cup that the Father has given Me, shall I not drink it”?

    A very rhetorical question, don’t you think?

          1. I’m intrigued by where you’re going with this Hazel. Somewhere recently I read that the true Grail is a Womb, but can’t recall where the thought came from. So when I saw your question, it brought it back to mind. The thought is still in gestation in the womb, so to speak.

            I know that Christ is the promised Seed (singular) of the woman (Genesis 3:15), and that the Womb is the place of gestation for the Seed (semen, from Hebrew za-rah). I know that unless the Seed falls into the Earth (that’s us) and dies, it cannot bear fruit (John 12:24). And I know that Christ (the Seed) in us is “the hope of Glory” (Colossians 1:27). I just don’t know how to put all these together to form a complete idea; perhaps the idea is awaiting more concepts?

            1. Yes, more concepts that show the correspondences, & like gematria, the hidden in plain sight connections…
              As you indicate we are all the vessel for the Christic seed.

              Ever full, overflowing, ever open to receiving, stirring, pouring, transubstantiation, changing water into wine, blood into earth, air into fire, death into life…the alchemical marriage uniting us all.

              The Holy Grail is the esoteric image of the whole of evolution; a living container which connects the ancient wisdom centers with esoteric Christianity. It is a key to the New Mysteries which are ever emerging in our time…The Grail integrates the etherized blood of the Christos with the Feminine aspect of the Holy Spirit, which descends on Whitsunday like tongues of fire – first to the heads of the disciples; penetrating then into their hearts, opening the larynx along the way, enabling them to speak the language of the heart.

              The disciples baptized by fire, become apostles…They are now able to put the secret teachings of the risen Christ, given to them over the 50 days between Easter & Pentecost, into practice out in the world. This is the first founding of the Modern Grail Science, which we are called to take up in our work of Building the Temple of the Heart.

              1. Obviously you’ve been thinking about this for awhile – there’s enough concepts here to overflow my “chalice”. Thanks Hazel, this brings it all together beautifully.

          2. Another thought on the Womb came yesterday – regarding the “seed of the woman” promised in Genesis 3:15, to redeem humanity. Had never considered that this term actually means the “semen of the woman”. Creator God, in foresight, created a second man from the first, but this man had a womb, hence “wo-man”.

            I know Steiner says that reproduction will be quite different in future humanity. The vessel for the Christ influence, the son of Mary, was conceived without the semen of a male, thus its origin is called the semen of the woman. Everything necessary for humanity’s redemption was encased in that Womb. The male actually became the “helpmeet” in this circumstance, with Joseph helping to ensure that Mary was kept safe so that nothing would interfere with the birth of this Child. So a reversal of roles, where the male now becomes the “helpmeet”. We ought to recognize, and place a high value, on such a Womb, that was so instrumental in our return to the Father’s house, the original domain of souls.

    1. A rhetorical thought indeed, this account you mention Steve. Allow me to share the thought it’s raised in my mind. I see the young man as an esoteric student of the first covenant, the “Law”, which was only meant as a temporary “covering”, like the linen sheet. Temporary, yet one could live if one followed it “I gave them My statutes and showed them My judgments which, if a man does, he shall live by them.” (Ezekiel 20:11). When it’s seized from him, he’s like Adam and Eve were in the garden, “naked”. A student in need of a garment.

      The garment he needed, but which hadn’t yet been provided, because Christ hadn’t yet been sacrificed, was the only garment which will suffice to allow one into the heavenly wedding feast, and that garment is Christ. Only Christ Jesus could drink the “Cup” the Father was giving – “Christ was offered once to bear the sins of many” (Hebrews 9:28).

      1. Here is my take on this questions, “what is the Cup”. Jesus prays to remove this ‘cup’ from him, but not for his sake, but for the Will of the Father. So, what is he doing? Why is he praying after all this time to remove and pass the ‘cup’ to the Father? It is because Jesus has been glorified at the Last Supper. It was decided then that Jesus was not going to suffer the crucifixion. So, he has none other to do than pray to the Father to remove the ‘cup’. So, the real issue is what comprises this ‘cup’?

        The Cup is the containment of the seven miracles described only in the Gospel of John, and wherein Christ exacts seven measures of His Being on the external plane of life. These seven measures pass over to the Nathan Jesus, who by the end of the three years that Christ walked the earth has become very gaunt and weak. You see, bearing the primal sun forces within a normal human body had become the progressive sign that the Son of Man was to die for the future of humanity. Yet, with the Last Supper, in which Christ washes the feet of the twelve disciples, and then tells them what it means, it also occurs that the Nathan Jesus is glorified in his own right. He is not to suffer crucifixion on the Cross of Golgotha as the Son of Man, but rather to pass the ‘Cup’, or container of the Sun Forces expressed in the seven miracles, back to the Christ. Just look at what John, 18:11 says. Can there be any doubt of who will die on the Cross?

        So, Jesus becomes the fleeing young man who escapes to live another day. He is able to present himself to Mary at the empty tomb. He also becomes the Etheric Jesus who enables the disciples to perceive the Risen Christ on the first day of the Resurrection.

        Steiner’s 10th lecture in the Kassel course on the Gospel of John goes over this rather completely.

        1. If you’re saying that Jesus was somehow excused from the crucifixion, which you seem to be saying, the question that rises is this – why, in John 18, is it repeated twice that this was JESUS OF NAZARETH whom the soldiers were seeking? It’s doubly emphasized that the man they arrested was Jesus (no mention of Christ), and several times His reply was, “I am He”. This kind of double emphasis is placed in Scripture to remove all doubt; it was probably foreseen that some would suppose that Jesus somehow “escaped”, leaving only the divine Christ to suffer the crucifixion.

        2. Perhaps I can explain it like this: Yes the Nathan Soul who held the divine archetype of the true human being before the fall was the vessel for the Christ.
          At the betrayal in the garden when the Christ began his mystery deed, you could say we see in this image given to us in the Gospel of Mark – of a ‘young man’ who’s garment is removed as holding the countenance of the Nathan Soul, but not as the proto-human, but as the final result of what we shall become when our physicality is stripped away in our future evolution into the Spirit-Human…

          1. The four gospels are consistent in that the writers do not entirely perceive that Christ and Jesus are combined; an entirely spiritual being in a human being. Thus, outwardly they all see and perceive Jesus of Nazareth over the course of the three years. Only after Pentecost do the disciples really begin to remember and understand with any kind of comprehension what has been going on. When Judas betrays Jesus, as described in chapter 18 of John, of course Christ is going to say, “I am he”. He has been combined with Jesus for three years! What happens after He says this? The captors all fall down. Now, isn’t that amazing? Only after Christ tells Peter in verse 11, “The Cup that the Father has given Me, shall I not drink it”? does it become possible to apprehend Him. Why? Because drinking the Cup causes Him to take on the possession of what had previously been in Jesus, i.e., the content of the seven miracles. The Mystery of Golgotha only makes sense when we can see this ultimate sacrifice of a God going through a human death for the first time in the history of the world. It is the Earth that receives these sun forces accumulated over the three years. For both Christ and Jesus to die together on the Cross was not necessary. In fact, Christ predicts many important signs involving the Son of Man for the future.

            This is why Peter has his singular experience of the fleeing young man, which is indicated only in the Gospel of Mark, chapter 14. Christ has just told him what to expect. Remember, when Jesus was praying to remove the “Cup”, he could not stay awake. Peter could not stay awake at the critical hour. Now, Christ has just told him that He does, in fact, have the cup to drink. In short, Christ takes possession of Jesus’ body. That is why the naked young man is a phantom. Naked is a symbol for his only possession, which is his Ego. A young man’s ego it was because Jesus had never been born before this life. His life was a very special preparation. GA 131 covers this in some detail.

  3. That study from the University of Kassel sounds interesting. It confirms something that we covered recently in Knowledge of Higher Worlds – just beginning to look at the “lotus flowers”, where Steiner says that when the esoteric pupil does his/her exercises, the flowers become brighter; later on they begin to revolve.

    Of course, this depends on the inner development of the pupil. To the clairvoyant, the flowers are dark in color; in the clairvoyant, the flowers are “luminous, mobile and of variegated color.”

    Your mention of bringing their vibrations high enough to “change matter, heal disease, and transform negative events” gives us a wonderful goal to strive for. This would be so helpful in our service to others.
