The telestic method
The telestic method of investigation, also called “instruction by the Light” is a reconstruction of the practice used by the Gnostic seers of the ancient mystery schools of Europe. It is the only method known on the planet that has delivered verifiable evidence of interactivity with the planet, so far. I am using the method to find solutions to real practical problems, such as eradicating the archontic infection, and to learn about the true nature of reality so as to participate more deeply in the processes of life on this planet. The method is not a secret and anyone can try it, although not everyone will be successful.
The word “gnosis” is usually used in reference to some sort of special knowledge, that is considered to be “spiritual”, esoteric and concerned with matters beyond everyday existence. I think of it as “direct knowledge”, meaning knowledge received directly, without any intermediary, from the local source of life on this planet, the earth. “The Light” is the Organic Light (OL), the radiant luminosity that animates all life because it is the naked body of the indwelling divinity of the earth. This is not a belief, but a direct experience of the telestic method.
This summer we held two Planetary Vision Quest Retreats, the unique rite of passage particular to Planetary Tantra, for the “new aboriginals of the 21st century”. There were eighteen participants in total, most were familiar with John Lash’s work. In both retreats several participants encountered the OL for the first time. We enjoyed moments of great beauty. Here are the words from one neophyte, who at 76 years old still retained the stance of a warrior and the innocence of a child:
“I came to your place in pure innocence and curiosity and couldn’t in my wildest fantasy imagine what would happen.
It was the most beautiful and fulfilling experience in my entire life. Now I don’t need to believe anymore – I KNOW that the Earth Goddess exist here and now and can be called upon.
The entire nature was dancing with wonderful colors and patterns before my very eyes and waving for me to take part in Gaia’s dance.
I was not really aware of the moon at first but when I began concentrating on the moon, I saw Her and she is indeed “flirtatious”.
The meeting with her was very intense and real. Her beauty is immense and the challenge is “How much beauty can you take” and I could take quite a lot, but surely not all…”
Hans has since translated the whole of Not in His Image into Swedish, demonstrating the true effect of witnessing the OL, in that it shows up in how you live your life – what you achieve, rather than what you say about yourself.
It is always a fervent desire of all neophytes to encounter the OL, but witnessing the OL cannot be the aim of a telestic session. The purpose of a telestic session is to receive instruction from the Light, which means that participants must have a question prepared and the presence of mind to ask it at the moment they encounter the OL. This is not easy to do first time around. In the age of the mystery schools, neophytes would have undergone a rigourous selection process and have had years to prepare for this moment. We do not have the luxury of such extensive preparation, in this tiny window at the close of the kalpa. Experience has shown that it is a foolhardy expedition even to attempt such preparation in the few days we have together before a telestic session, so we will be changing the structure of future events accordingly. Look out for the Hierophant Programme to be announced in January 2017.
Selection in Correction
Since the onset of Correction, which began in March 2014, it is becoming ever more clear that the Aeonic Mother is calling the shots. Human witnesses can participate in Her Correction on Her terms only. What does this mean?
There is a selection process underway and it is a species level event. There is no doubt that humanity will survive, as all indications are that the Aeon Sophia aims to continue with this experiment and She now has witnesses to Her actions too. However, a mutation of the human species is now underway and a new strain, Anthropos 11 is appearing alongside the pre-existing A10. Although the specific attributes of A11 are still not fully discernible, the failure of A10 is becoming more self-evident by the day. A10 does not appear to be evolving towards the genius level with which it was endowed any time soon, primarily due to the archontic infection and the way it has manifested during this kalpa, (one Aeonic day, or 25,920 years). John’s insight into how this kalpa is coming to an end is very clear and makes perfect sense to anyone of sufficient intellect to understand. See Director’s Cut. The big question for each of us is: how does this play out at an individual level? Now, you want to ask: what’s in it for me? That’s a perfectly valid question, but from now on, in order to stay in the game, you must also ask: what’s in it for the species. A11 consciously operates at both personal and transpersonal levels with simultaneity.
Regarding the initial conditions for selection, are you an individual? The billions of people on this planet who respond with Pavlovian predictability to the dictates of their chosen tribal leaders are not individuals. They play-out to the end of the mainstream movie and then what? Oblivion beckons. Who cares? If you consider yourself to be an individual and act as an individual AND with regard to the contribution you are making to the species, there are still further competencies needed in order to be selected into A11. These conditions are still coming into focus. So far, I can say that you need to be sane and rational, you must have a critical level of intelligence, you must appreciate beauty, your pleasure drives must be intact and you certainly can’t be biophobic. You need to be in good health too, as the transmutation process takes a lot of energy.
Beyond this, there is still another level of selection, whereby after having met the selection criteria set by the Aeonic Mother (whatever they might be) you still have to select yourself in – voluntary self-selection. This seems to be based on your impeccability and how you live up to the pretenses you set for yourself. Those of us present at the Sovereign Moment Retreat here in August, witnessed failure of self-selection for one individual. I had known this young man, we’ll call him ‘S’, for two years and he had presented himself as a dedicated student; he could be funny and seemingly insightful on occasion, but it turned out that he was pretending to be a warrior and his pretending showed up catastrophically in the session. S could not control himself and became hysterical, luckily doing no harm to himself or anyone else. As a species the Anthropos is designed to learn from its mistakes and that often means that we over-extend ourselves and get into hot water, there is nothing wrong with that. However, to learn from a mistake you have to admit the mistake and S failed to do that and went on to make further mistakes, revealing the weak character he tried so hard to hide. Does this prove S is A10, doomed to extinction? I cannot possibly say. My observation is that he did not behave with the excellence or impeccability – arete – of the warrior he claimed to be and therefore, he cannot receive instruction by the Light.
As a contrast, I want to record the most beautiful moment on this retreat, which was when Alex claimed her personal sovereignty. A few of us had the pleasure of seeing how Alex directed PAM’s rage and acted on it with strength, grace and precision. Alex had been battling an illness for a while and in that moment I saw her innate self-healing spring to life.
An addendum to this and coming down to earth with a big, fat bump relates to an experience earlier this year. On this occasion I met a woman who was morbidly obese and had zero personality. This woman claimed to have a multi-millionaire, handsome, yacht-owning boyfriend who wanted to marry her. The obvious question: what on earth does he see in you, was not asked by anyone there, even though we all thought it. Was that kindness? Now that the Maitreya Process is active, I think it is easier to address such sensitive issues as they arise, in the spirit of friendship. The unasked questions, the topics that create tension when they spontaneously arise, these thoughts when expressed in the moment have the power to pierce the thickest armour and release the prisoner trapped inside.
The Command Syntax: interim report
I’ve been working on this since the November 2015 retreat in Andalucia. My command for the Summer Solstice Retreat was: show me the command syntax. In the moment of stabalising the OL I stated the command sub-vocally and Her response was immediate and crystal clear: what do you want me to do? Unfortunately, I wasn’t ready for that and didn’t have an answer.
In preparation for the Sovereign Moment Retreat I studied the following text:
When Pistis saw the impiety of the Lord Archon she was filled with anger. Acting in her invisible form, she spoke in this way: “You are mistaken, blind one — false deity who cannot see. There is an immortal luminous child, the Anthropos, who came into existence before you and who will appear among your spectral forms (plasmata). This luminous child will trample you in scorn just as a potter’s clay is pounded (into a lump). And you will sink away to your proper zone, the abyss (of gravity), along with those who belong to your legion.
“For at the consummation of your work, the entire defect [of Archontic illusion] exposed in the light of truth will be abolished, and will be as if it never had been.”
— On the Origin of the World, 103.15-30
I was groping for the command that would bring this text to fruition, because at that time it was not clear to me what sovereignty was to Her. I went through many variations of killing all the archontic agents and their proxies, but how could the Anthropos recover it’s pride without defeating it’s enemies? And who was going to do it? “The luminous child will trample you in scorn” seemed to be the key. Who is the luminous child and what will cause them to take the requisite action? On the morning of the telestic session, this syntax came to me: show yourself and your method to the Aryan people.
Initially, I considered the term “white people”. However, one of the neophytes at the retreat demonstrated through her actions, that this was not correct. Cheryl does not have white skin, but in her disciplined approach, intellect, beauty and pursuit of excellence, she proved herself to be Aryan. Being Aryan has nothing to do with skin colour. The origin of the term is unknown, except that it was how Indo-Iranian people referred to themselves – Aryan, most likely became Iran. Over time Aryan came to be used in reference to nobility; not the accidental nobility of birth or caste, but nobility of character. Today, just as in ancient times, anyone can designate themselves as Aryan regardless of their skin colour, provided that they live up to the Aryan standard of excellence – arete. Arete is the standard of the luminous child that shines through all those who hold themselves to this standard and when you act in accordance with this standard, in whatever situation you find yourself, the enemies of humanity will be defeated. Correction in the human realm is demonstrated through arete.
So, what is sovereignty to the Aeonic Mother? It means that She now has agency within the human realm.
“During the Sovereign Moment from January 9 through August 8, 2016, the planetary animal mother gained agency in the human world. This expression means that she, an Aeonic power from the galactic center now embodied in a planet, has direct access to the way human animals attend to their experiences. Gaining agency is a key factor in accomplishing her Correction which began in March 2014 after a reset process running for three years from March 2011. Indeed, It is the decisive factor.”
Sophia demonstrated Her method, Her Agency, with panache and humour, just as we moved into completion of the Bhairavi shift.
This crop circle appeared in Wiltshire, England on the morning of the 27th August. This is a very specific swastika, with the four dots signifying that it represents the earth itself. I am not suggesting for a minute that Sophia did this directly. I am claiming that this is proof of Her Agency, in that She affected other human animals to do it and that this is proof of the command syntax and the telestic method, as witnessed by those who were here.
The ongoing challenge is to improve the command content and syntax and to fine-tune the process. More on this in a future post.
