|Tell all the
Truth but tell it slant —
Success in Circuit lies
Too bright for our infirm Delight
The Truth's superb surprise
As Lightning to the Children eased
With explanation kind
The Truth must dazzle gradually
Or every man be blind —
~ Emily Dickinson
individualized manifestation of Original
Creator Source, our spirit needs a form or body to navigate certain
environments. As embodied, spirit energy beings on the earth we
actually have more than one body, each interpenetrating and integrated
with one another. A body is any form through which the individualized
self moves and functions on some level. A soul is also another kind of
enlarged mental body which encompasses this self, participating in life
simultaneously with other souls. Original Creator Source Mind is the
infinite, underlying source of this enlarged soul self. All minds are
participating simultaneously with one another, as united and sustained
by the same Spirit.

While living on the earth our primary conscious experience is informed by the senses of the physical body, which is the densest of our bodies—so dense that we experience it as material and made of matter. This matter is so compacted from its slow vibrations that the Principle of Attraction on earth is based on some of the gravitational forces that are generated by this matter—or more aptly, generated because of matter.
The day will come when we’ll no longer need our physical form, the densest of our bodies, and it will be shed like an old winter coat. Left behind, it will be broken back down into the basic elements that constitute starlight. The old garment will be reabsorbed into the earth as well as released into the cosmos to be used again in other ways. As an individualized spirit we will continue on in a state that can still be called “embodied,” but in the far more subtle and highly vibrating astral body. We will move on and into a new season of life, a place or condition the Victorians quaintly called “Summerland” and some Native Americans might have called “The Yearned For Good Hunting Ground.” Almost every culture on the earth has its way of describing where we find ourselves after we die. We say “almost” because the culture of our highly technological and materialistic modern society has left barely any room for such a concept. Yet a spiritual revolution appears to be occurring now, re-opening our lives to ancient understandings.

As Risen, we won’t be dead at all, but more alive, conscious, and aware than ever before. We’ll be free of the immense gravity and spirit-numbing effects our materially dense earth bodies had been continually bearing upon our spirit. We will learn to move, live, and love in the astral body we had been carrying all along within our densest material one, and which had been evolving—or not—according to how much we focused on its evolution.
