The Source



Welcome to the Source.  Some of the discussions in the Source will sound
wilder than science fiction.  But, then, truth is said to be stranger than

Many are charmed by the expression of Light - not seeing the Source of the
Light.  The Light is NOT the Source.

The [Divine] Source is often mentioned, but one must ask, "What is the
Source?"  It has been called by many names, such as:  The Unmanifest, The
Fount, All That Is, The One, The Great Mystery, Wakan Tanka, The Great Mind,
The Great Spirit, The Logos, The Formless One, The Infinite, The Timeless
One, etc.

The Source is the original "Home" of the Light.  From the Source, or The
Unmanifest, grows the Root of Creation.  Continuing with the analogy of a
plant, (realizing that this is necessarily a simplified explanation of
something that physical minds have a great deal of difficulty in
comprehending), consider that the trunk of Creation brings forth a single
branch - the Branch of Light.

From the Branch of Light appeared a shoot - the Shoot of Darkness.  I have
occasionally referred to the Shoot of Darkness as the Evil Creation, the
Evil Mind, the Evil Principle, Darkness or Evil.  For purposes of this
discussion, these terms are interchangeable.

The Shoot of Darkness was not created by Evil.  It is in fact a shoot from
the Divine Creation that went awry.  If the Shoot of Darkness were severed
from the Tree of Creation, it would wither and fade upon severance from the

If the Branch of Light were severed from the Source, it also would wither
and die.  Creation is the Expression of the Source and the Expression cannot
exist without nourishment from the Source.

The Branch of Light eventually became intertwined with the Shoot of Darkness
as the shoot clung to the branch for sustenance and support.  Due to this
mingling, it is difficult to discern if a being belongs to the Branch of
Light or the Shoot of Darkness.  All beings need to be traced to the Root or
Trunk of Creation to discover where they stem from.

The closer to the Trunk, the easier it is to discern, but as the Branch and
Shoot grow and express further, the interweaving of Light and Darkness makes
it harder and harder to identify individual beings.

Evil stemmed from a celestial experimental error that would not correct
itself, nor take Divine Correction, but instead thrived on the Corrective
Energy all the while resisting and defying Divine Correction.  Evil saw the
Creation (The Expression) as the Ultimate and forgot that without the Source
there would be no Expression.

Darkness created the illusion that it is the Source.  This illusion is so
real that Darkness itself is deluded and thinks that It (Darkness) is the
Source.  Evil chose the glitter over the substance.  The glitter attracts
the majority of beings.  Many of the Light beings also erroneously perceive
the Expression of Light as the Ultimate.

It is not the Source, but the Expression that is corrupted.  The Source, the
Unmanifest, is all there is of permanence and it remains uncorrupted.
Nothing is self sustaining that is manifested from the Source.  Only the
Source is eternal and perpetual.  Thus, the statement that the Light is
self-sustaining is clearly a simplification that needs further explanation
at this time.  A simple explanation is that the Light of Creation has been
deemed Good by the Unmanifest, and so long as the Light tends towards
Purity, it is self-sustaining because by striving towards Purity it
automatically connects Itself to the Source.

The Unmanifest will always be as it is - the Unmanifest.  It is not
personalized in the way humans comprehend and perceive it to be.  People are
unaware of the existence of the two Lights that are present in this False
Creation.  The two Lights I am referring to should not be confused with the
concept of the greater and lesser lights of the Masonic teachings.  For
purposes of clarification, I shall refer to the two Lights as the True Light
and the False Light.

However, the Light can be contaminated by Darkness if Darkness invades
Light.  Hence, if Darkness is not checked, the Light could be swamped and
weakened by Darkness and become contaminated by It.  The Light referred to
and experienced by the majority of people in this world and in the astral is
often not the True Light - it is actually the False Light from the Shoot of
Darkness.  Few people suspect that the Light they see and experience is in
fact not the True Light of the Branch of Light.  This explains why beings of
Light as well as beings of Darkness often claim that they are of the Light
and have been in the Light during near-death experiences and at other times
even though the Light they experienced is the False Light.  The Light
experienced by many people during near-death experiences is the False Light.

The present Dalai Lama has cautioned his followers that existence may not be
infinite.  Further, the Catholic Bible in Psalm 23 expresses a similar
thought in its final verse: "I will dwell in the house of the LORD for years
to come."  This concept is correct - when True Light is withdrawn from the
False Light at the time when the True-Light beings are withdrawn from this
Evil Creation (Shoot of Darkness).  In other words, Darkness is beginning to
suspect that when the Light supplied by the True-Light beings is withdrawn
due to their liberation from Darkness, the False Light will be extinguished.
Hence the existence of the False-Light beings (beings of Darkness) is not

Creation is an ongoing process.  It is only in the Dark Shoot of Creation
that "time" exists.  True Creation is Timeless.

Beings of Light will naturally be attracted to the True Light unless they
are severely contaminated by Darkness.  Beings from the Shoot of Darkness
are naturally attracted to the False Light created by the Shoot of Darkness
and will naturally be repulsed and threatened by the True Light.  Further,
True-Light beings can still be attracted to the False Light due to
programming, illusions and pollution.

Although True-Light beings can be attracted to the False Light, they are not
ultimately repulsed or threatened by True Light even though they might
initially be a bit insecure towards It due to pollution and programming from
Darkness.  True-Light beings are in fact nurtured, strengthened and
sustained by the True Light.

Beings of Darkness are attracted to the False Light and are nurtured by It
while   beings of Light, even they are being programmed to respond or be
attracted to the False Light, are not nurtured by the False Light.  Instead,
they are being exploited by the False Light and become pockets of energy
that nurture Darkness.

Beings of Darkness are not comfortable in the presence of True Light.  They
feel a sense of gloom and doom.  They can never recognize nor accept the
True Light and Its "Messengers".  They can never truly feel at home nor can
they truly be committed to the Work sponsored by the True Light.  Such ones
will always feel that they are still searching for their way home, even if
they encounter True Light and Its Messengers.  This is true since their real
home goes back to the Shoot of Darkness and not to the Branch of Light or
the Source.

On the other hand, beings of Light can never totally feel committed or
comfortable with the False Light.  The True-Light beings who are nourished
by the True Light grow in Purity, while the False-Light beings who are
nurtured by the False Light grow more and more evil.  However, beings for
either side will ultimately know which side they belong to.

The True Light carries an inner sound, an inner vibration, a blueprint which
the False Light cannot reproduce even though the False Light can imitate the
appearance of the True Light.  This is where the awakened beings of Light
will be able to discriminate the True-Light beings from the False-Light
beings AFTER the final stages of the separation of Light from Darkness
commence.  There is the Pulse, the inner Sound, the inner Vibration that
individual beings of True Light can inwardly access to recognize the True

The separation of the True Light and False Light is now in progress.  This
is manifesting on many levels and the operation is extremely complex and
delicate.  The entire Tree of Creation (the Expression) appears to be far
gone, but some of It can still be retrieved.  Therefore, the Tree can be
saved with some delicate pruning.  It is better to lose the offending part
than to lose the entire Tree.

As beings of the True Light become more and more detached from the beings of
the False Light, they become more and more unified with the True Light.
When this occurs they begin to notice the differences between themselves and
the beings of Darkness (This will occur more on the subtle level and in
their spiritual expression rather than in their physical appearance).

As beings of Light become more and more in tune with the True Light, they
will become more and more vibrant, shining sparks of the True Light.  Beings
of Light and beings of Darkness will then become more and more intolerant
and uncomfortable with one another.  While this separation of the two Lights
is in progress, True-Light beings and False-Light beings will both be
undertaking their respective "metamorphoses".

The Miniature Galaxy that has been discussed in the past is a "Half-Way
House" for the viables when they are evacuated from this Evil Creation.
True-Light beings who have been contaminated by Darkness will reside there
until all the necessary "metamorphoses" is completed so that they can safely
be re-assimilated into the Branch of Light.  Thus, once again, they will be
re-united with the Source and become an integral part of the True Creation.

It is then that True-Light beings will exist in the love, purity,
timelessness, harmony, joy and beauty of the True Creation.  Even the being
known as "Time" will have been liberated from Darkness.

DISCLAIMER: Thrice in my life I experienced the Light, once on a mountaintop, once in my Fresno farmhouse and once on my couch in Sandy, Utah. Don't know if the Light happenings were good or bad, but much more interesting than the mountaintop, Fresno or Sandy. I do find the D.M. article most powerfully instructional, although I do fret about how frail humans confronted with such profound possibilities can sort it all out. I also suspect that the cosmos might trump us all. For myself Awe is my best very real ally.--Kent
