Tell-Tale Heart

What if…? The universe is made of music & storiesThe Word – not fluff & stuff.

What song will you sing today to bring the world into existence? What story will you tell?

hmmm…but, ummm…what if we aren’t consciously creating the universe? What if we are just going along, living in someone else’s narrative? What happens if we habitually expose ourselves not to The Word within, but to the voices shouting directives from outside us? – To the toxic stories that serve to enslave? What if a commercial jingle is our earworm? – The sound bite our only truth?

Friends! We could wind up living in a false universe! – A world where we are just human animals; a statistic, not spiritual beings having a human experience – A world where it’s impossible to become the purposeful prodigy we are ALL born to be.

No that’s crazy-talk; we would never choose that, right!?! We know that’s not our destiny!

So let’s wean ourselves off tell-tales that have a reductive plot line, & no real heart – fueled primarily by grotesque, negative scenarios, or delusional one size fits all ‘safety’ measures.

Instead, let’s celebrate the luminous mysteries that throb with truth & shape our life story: The clear meditative meanderings that don’t always lead to tidy conclusions, the budding spiritual ‘What If’s’ that feed our soul, but don’t do a thing to serve the false ego’s apathies. Let’s live into the adventure that revolves around brain-teasing breakthroughs, instead of exhausting wobbly confusion, or a status quo submission caused by fear & illusion….

So how about it…? Let’s encourage each other to nourish ourselves with delicious, nutritious narratives & the glorious Music of the Spheres, where ‘the ever present help of the spiritual world’ resounds – inspiring us to exercise our willpower for the highest good of all.

17 October 2021 – “Speaking with the Stars”: Deneb Kaitos is the brightest star in the constellation Cetus the Whale (or Sea-Monster). In star names, the word deneb usually means tail. And so it is with this star. It marks the tail of Cetus. It shines about as bright as Polaris the North Star. Deneb Kaitos reaches its highest in the sky on October and November evenings every year. It appears in the southern sky. ~earthsky

Constellation of Cetus the Whale Drawing by James Thornhill

In seaform, in cloud swirlings, in purposeful imaginings
I am the Sea-Monster in the sky
cracking the shell of illusion to reveal my meal
a food fit for the gods, my mission:
bestowing spirit life in the transformation…
Do not fear my destruction for I am true life…
Brooding on the face of the celestial waters
I am an urge, an idea, the portent
of an impossible dream
I lay between heaven & earth, between goodness & evil,
patience & explosion,
I am innocent & rosy as dawn…
I sleep with my finger in my mouth,
The cord of life curled beside my open ear…
I am with you but not among you…
I have no ending for I have no beginning.
I have always been here, a bitter-sweetness,
in the silence of things
Ready to awaken & renounce the false image
reflected in the briny past
I am the power of the primal sea, wise & generous.
The power of my Autumning is metamorphosis
for death in one world means birth in another…

~I come to spout the wisdom of water into the air…
I come with a star seed in my mouth…
I come to you
To sow my sky-sea tree…
Will you be there to meet me…?

  1. Hi Hazel. Enjoyed your discussion about the Music of the Spheres. My contribution to your discussion would be to mention the lecture from CW 155, “Christ and the Human Soul”, Lecture IV, where he teaches that there were two realms that humanity was excluded from, symbolically represented by the denial of our access to the tree of life. One of those involves the Music of the Spheres – which means effectively, that until we enter that state of consciousness of “not I, but Christ in me”, we have been denied access to any reception of such Music. One great aspect of the work accomplished at the Mystery of Golgotha, restoring our access to that realm. (We were denied access so that death wasn’t introduced into those realms as it was into all lower realms -great lecture, one of my favorites so far).

    1. Only two of the four Ethers were allowed to come forth in the Garden of Eden story from Genesis 3. Thus, the Fire Ether and the Light Ether broke through in the experience of Adam and Eve, wherein the temptation of Lucifer corrupted them to eat of the Tree of the Knowledge of Good and Evil. Hence, they were excluded from the Garden for the period of time necessary in order to begin to receive the other two Ethers, i.e., the Chemical-Tone Ether, which is related to the Music of the Spheres, and the Life Ether, which is related to the original Tree of Life.

      It was with the birth of the Nathan Jesus that these two Ethers came to earth again in the preparation for the entry of the Christ. Christ takes up these two Ethers, which had been withheld by the decree of Jehova when Adam and Eve were expelled. Thus, for two thousand years, Christ has been working with them progressively for the advancement of humanity.

      At the outset of the 20th century, this became a real objective. What Paul had experienced in terms of: “Not I but Christ in me” at the turning point of time has grown exponentially since then in order to receive the Michael Impulse as an objective fact since 1879. This has the effect of adding ‘Michael’ to the original equation spoken by Paul two thousand years ago. In other words, “Not I, but Christ and Michael in me”.

      According to Rudolf Steiner’s last writings involving the Michael Letters, he says that it is Michael’s objective to preserve and persuade a retrace of the past, wherein the Music of the Spheres will become ours again. At the same time, the forward progress into the future, wherein the expansion of ego consciousness leads to Spirit Self, Life Spirit, and Spirit Man, will serve to effect the restoration of the Life Ether. This Life Ether concerns the origins from the beginning, now made the matter of Gnosis.

      In order to effect a true Michaelmas festival, these considerations need to be taken up from the standpoint of Spiritual Science.
