New Exodus and the Path of the Divine Rainbow – II
In the previous Post I listed four steps on the Nine-Fold Rainbow Path : Exodus, The Garden of Paradise, The Holy Mountain, and The Heavenly Jerusalem. Now I will continue to list the rest of the Steps. The work of our spiritual group, lasting for more than thirty years, is dedicated to this Path. Now, I am only listing the Steps on the Rainbow Path, but there is rich material about them in the format of books, lectures, seminars, a website and various media activities.
If we imagine humankind ascending to heaven, to a new higher state of consciousness and at the same time acting on Earth with the task of transforming it into a Paradise, then we can say that the path of humankind is like a magnificent Divine Rainbow – Earth-Heaven-New Earth – rising from the earthly consciousness to Heaven and descending back to the reality of the New Earth. In essence, the Path of the Divine Rainbow reminds us of another very inspiring rainbow image which represents the Covenant that God made with Noah:
When the rainbow appears in the clouds, I will see it and remember the everlasting covenant between me and all living beings on earth. That is the sign of the promise which I am making to all living beings. (Genesis 9:16-17)
This rainbow, arcing from the Earth to the sky and back to Earth, is a symbol of Divine protection and care for humankind and all kingdoms of life on Earth. The new Divine Rainbow is a mythological image, a symbol of the greatest metaphysical event in human history: the return of humanity back to the Kingdom of God and the establishment of this Divine reality down on Earth, which will affect all living beings and the planet as well. The path of the Divine Rainbow is the result of the creative Act of God, Who creates everything new, as the prophecies of Isaiah, Ezekiel and St. John testify. They testify for the glory of the Holy City, the New Jerusalem, coming down out of Heaven from God.
Above the highest Divine world in Creation is the CREATOR, the World of Emanation according to Kabbalah, the Absolute in Hinduism,, the Great Void in Buddhism, Allah in Islam. The Fifth and Sixth Steps are consecrated respectively to the Mysteries of Universal Spirit – the active, subjective, masculine Divine principle, and to the Mysteries of the Universal Feminine – the receptive, objective, feminine Divine principle. They are in eternal dynamic Union, through which the CREATOR now emanates the reality of the New Heaven and the New Earth. At this stage of our Path we merge with Metatron, achieve the state of cosmic consciousness called Yechidah and receive a mission for co-creation with G-d!
The Fifth and the Sixth Steps constitute the climax of the Divine Rainbow Path. But, while the Fifth Step crowns the first act of the drama of humankind’s transformation – that of mergence with G-d, the Sixth Step opens the second act of this drama – our descent back with the task of bringing the reality of the Kingdom of God down on Earth.
Step Seven of the Divine Rainbow Path is The Transfiguration of the Earth. It requires healing, purification and spiritualisation of the Earth. In general, our perception and understanding of the Earth depend on our state of consciousness. When we open our eyes to the astral celestial world, we can contemplate the Earth as a beautiful “astral planet”. Then, for us, the Earth will appear as a living celestial Being with its own planetary Soul (part of the Universal Soul) and with a planetary Spirit – i.e. the planetary Divine Logos, who leads the evolution of the Earth. The Earth, as a celestial Being, has spiritual centres (chakras) and a very rich and well developed structure of lay-lines of circulating energies which correspond to the nervous system in the human body.
Therefore the new Earth for us will be enlivened by radiantly bright spiritual colours and will become first a Garden of Paradise, a wonderful “astral” planet, and after this it will appear as a Divine Temple in the Kingdom of God where there are many mansions. On the new Earth we will live as cosmic-spiritual beings and we will be mediators between Heaven and Earth for the spiritual elevation of the whole planet with all kingdoms of life on it. Thus we will fulfil our predestined function on Earth as Divine Mediators (Divine Messengers). For this purpose we will be in direct contact with the Divine Masters as the living Light – they will be both within our Souls and Spirits and before our spiritual gaze. This is the reality of the New Earth and in this reality we will become new beings – Sons and Daughters of the Divine Father-Mother. Thus, we will live as God’s people on sacred Earth.
Step Eight is Transformation of the Earthly Culture into a Heavenly Culture. Each nation has a three-fold structure similar to that of the human being: body (personality), soul and spirit. On the earthly, or material level, every nation develops by forming a socio-cultural organism which consists of various systems such as economic, political, cultural, religious, educational and so forth. These systems are very closely, organically interconnected and, altogether, form the ‘organism’ of the human society which, in order to develop and reproduce itself, enters into relationship with the socio-cultural organisms of other nations and with all kingdoms of life on Earth.
Every nation also has its National Soul which is like a bouquet of human virtues and qualities that the nation develops over centuries and expresses through religion, morality, the arts and science. Each nation makes a unique contribution to humankind’s treasury of spiritual qualities. Together the National Souls comprise the essence of humanity in the Heart of God – that is, in the reality of the Universal Soul.
Furthermore, every nation has its National Spirit who leads the nation and its destiny according to the Divine Plan. Each nation has a mission which it unfolds over the centuries of its development on Earth and the National Spirit, an emanation from the Divine Universal Spirit, is the inspirer of this mission. The ‘kings of the earth‘ referred to by St. John are the National Spirits who hold the keys to the spiritual wealth gathered by each nation along its historical path. So, when the time comes for humankind to return to the Kingdom of God, its ‘kings’ will bring forth and manifest the spiritual wealth of the nations. In other words, every National Spirit-Guide will present the spiritual richness of his people in front of the Throne of God.
The process of transformation of the earthly culture into a heavenly one is similar to the blossoming of the human Soul and the awakening of the higher Self. Just as the human being first develops a personality and self-consciousness within the human culture and later transcends this level of existence to enter into the higher worlds, so human society develops its socio-cultural organism based on the earthly culture and later it has to transform its earthly culture and enter into the ring of cosmic-spiritual civilizations. Then human society ceases its absorption with itself, becomes an organic part of the heavenly civilizations, and starts to blossom in the reality of the Universal Soul and the Universal Spirit.
Finally, as we establish our new celestial style of life which bears fruit twelve times a year (Revelation 22:2), we reach the end of the Divine Rainbow, touching the New Earth, which has already become a Garden of Paradise. And in accord with myth that at the end of every rainbow there is a pot of gold, at the end of the Path of the Divine Rainbow we will find, or more precisely speaking, establish the New Golden Age. This is Step Nine of our Exodus on the Path of the Divine Rainbow.
Fortunately, when humankind reaches the higher states of consciousness which correspond to the reality of the New Heaven and the New Earth, it will not descend back to the world of struggling polarities. The dramatic metahistorical cycle of human involution after the Fall will not be repeated again. Instead of descending into the dark earthly life of struggling polarities, humankind will continue its ascent from Light to Light and from Wisdom to Wisdom, continuously deepening its spiritual experience within the initiatic cycles of the cosmic-spiritual Zodiac-Mandala of the Heavenly Jerusalem on Earth.
The main aims of Step Nine are to model our style of life in the reality of harmonised polarities and to form the structure of the spiritual year which brings fruit twelve times a year. The formation of the new harmonious style of life is a very subtle spiritual task which requires changing our whole stream of life with its values, motivations, principles and attitudes. In this new style of life we have to implement the results of our journey on all previous Steps of the Nine-Fold Rainbow Path. At the beginning of the Path, in Step One, we are discussing the most appropriate style of life, but for the journey which lies ahead. In Step Nine we have to summarise the spiritual results of the journey and to form a harmonious style of life which will allow us to live in the higher world of balanced polarities. When we make Step Nine the beginning of a new Rainbow journey, we will then implement the results from the previous spiritual path in an appropriate style of life for the new journey and so on, journey after journey on the Divine Rainbow Path. Truly, there is no end to our spiritual growth on the Divine Rainbow Path and our celestial evolution on the spiral of the initiatic cycle of the Mandala of the Heavenly Jerusalem.
Dear Friends, after the general information about the Exodus on the Path of the Divine Rainbow, it is appropriate to go deeper into some of the Steps leading to the reality of the Heavenly Jerusalem. Let us start on this path, because in it is the key for solving the main human problems on Earth, including the Coronavirus pandemic and the existing wars! With our present egocentric style of life on Earth, we are destroying the Earth, Nature and our own civilization. Let us embark on the Path of the Divine Rainbow, because this is the Will of God for the new cosmic cycle of evolution and in it we will live forever with Divine Blessings for Health, Love, Joy, Peace, Wisdom, Light and Salvation! So be it! Amen!
