Seeds Of Ascension

Outline: In the perfectly normal world a man gets married, goes on a memorable honeymoon and has the time of his life. Only normality ceased for Roger Harrison with the discovery of alien technology within him, guardian angels, reptilian hunters and a sixty thousand year-old Atlantean, inspiring the awareness that memories are the illusion to which reality is draped and all is rarely as it seems in the journey of a soul’s growth. He begins to realize that time isn’t measured in heartbeats or lifetimes by some beings and a heavy price must be paid to stand in the gateway between memory and knowing, reality and illusion. But it is a price Roger is willing to pay to thwart those who would doom the ascension of the human race. This is based on many spiritual beliefs, recent scientific discoveries and the notion that we are not only not alone in this galaxy, but other more advanced races have us under surveillance in order to guide us into the next phase of our planet’s evolution. Roger and several others are being tested by people he views as angels, who are really agents sent from the Pleiades to test and guide us through an ascension process started by our advancing technology.

In Kansas? Sparky, I Don’t Even Think We’re On Earth Anymore.

Prelude

At certain times in our lives a rare wind blows across the fields of our minds that like others before it, stirs leaves and rustles grasses. Only this breeze disturbs dust covering dormant memories thought buried beneath the weight of time’s passage. Stricken chords begin vibrations, opening barbs of echoes nagging at the consciousness. Singing to voices thought gone from previous incarnations, former lives and sequestered dreams.

As dust settles and the wind diminishes, illusions present themselves that everything appears the same as before. Except the eyes and their four accompanying cohorts are in a sense easily deceived fools, allowing self-absorbed egos to bask in their own vanities. Oblivious to the fact that evolution is an aching compulsion beckoning with greater urgency at every passing breath to let change occur naturally. While within, the subconscious relentlessly hammers away at logic’s walls with persistent scratches of intuition’s voice.

Calling out to the settling dust, that as the wind quiets, something has inexplicably changed.

And as the stirred leaf is returned to its former position, awakenings take root in the realization, beneath knowing’s furtive glances, that it can never be put back into the same state of cognizance as before.

Expelling the old self and inhaling the new is all part of the process, the rhythmicity of life, like the waves of the ocean stealing at the shore’s foundation of imposed truths.

In the Akashic Hall of Records I look up from the Tome, my mind inscribing astral light thoughts onto the blank pages set before me. “Why am I here?” I ask.

The Hathor guide moves behind me. “Sundering one’s self from the whole and from All That Is brings not truly understanding, not knowing Thyself.” He glances at my words. “You begin to understand this final Chakra lesson well. It is time for this teacher to leave, for there is no more I can show you.”

I have learned much from him, with so much left to learn. He vanishes as I finish writing. Even time itself, in the scheme of universal matters, becomes meaningless.

Yet enlightenment cannot be won without darkness and from that void comes the sacred knowledge that there is no going back, no retreating from awareness, for that surely leads on the path to madness. We have both inside, light and dark, awareness and ignorance. To deny one means to surrender to the other and that is one of the secrets in transcending this realm and in comprehending the existence of the others.

Still, somewhere on awareness’ wind comes the tongues of chaos humming an endless incantation, as surely as old people whisper and children laugh freely, that nothing, absolutely nothing, is as we remembered it.

Nor can it ever be as it once was.

That wind blew this morning as you chose to open this book.

Dru83: This is perhaps my favorite part of the Olafson story just because it is here that were are introduced to his "gang".
