The Implications of Balance in a World of Free Will

One + One = Two. Ever so simple!

Evolving thought comes as a person adds one known to another known to arrive at a third previously unknown from the synthesis of the first two. The rhetorical saying that I personally subscribed to some years back was: “One must see the obvious before one can see further. What will be obvious tomorrow is not obvious today; and what is obvious today was not obvious yesterday.”

One: We live in a world of free-will. We have the option to choose love or to choose not-love. Still pretty simple! Choosing love brings a person to better relationships, to the path of spirituality, to harmony, and to a greater awareness of the connection to the higher realms. Choosing not-love is just as simple. It brings anger, agitation, judgment, conflict, and a reduction in awareness of the connection to lower vibration.

Another One: Earth is a planet of balance. Unlike Mars, we on Earth are not inherently warriors, or adventurers, or pioneers. And unlike Venus, we are not inherently compassionate, kind, or loving. Some of us are each of these at different times in our lives. Earth sits in a position of balance between the planets of love and war. When imbalance rears its ugly head, most of us do not have any difficulty seeing the problems it brings. A great deal of the practice of spiritual healing is focused on re-establishing balance. Disease is an imbalance—too much cigarette smoke leads to cancer. Perhaps the most noticeable imbalances are those in the political arena. When dictators, democratic or not, impose their personal agendas, countries drift toward imbalances. Corruption is an imbalance.

One + Another One = Two: When you add free-will to Earth’s balancing act, the outcome becomes a choice to live in balance or not. When the will is in-balance and on the path of love, consideration is given to others. A person has tolerance, appreciation, and goodwill, without going overboard. Such a person has goodwill for others, but also for self—in balance.

On the other side of the coin, when the will is out-of-balance and the person has chosen to not-love, really bad things happen. What can a strong will from the dark side do? Search the internet for the movie: “Triumph of the Will”. The Nazis understood the will. World War 2 is a case of excessively strong will married to the choice to not-love on a global scale. Bringing the warring world back into balance in 1945 took an atomic bomb to establish peace. Does this grate against your illusions of how the world is on Earth. Good! One must see the obvious before one can see further.

Ask the question: why have we, on Earth, had to live under the illusive hope that there will somehow be world peace? Wars and interpersonal conflicts have been a part of the past for as long as memory allows. The present is no different. The threat of mutually assured destruction from thermo-nuclear war has kept the world at peace since 1945, but pseudo-wars have broken out in different parts of the globe continually—Khuzestan 1945, Indo-Pakistan 1947, Arab-Israel 1948 /56 /67 /73  /82 /87 /00 /06 /08 /12 /14 /21, China 1949, Korea 1953, Taiwan Strait 1954/58/95, Vietnam 1954/65, Tibet 1959, Cuba 1959, Congo 1960, Ethiopia 1964, South Africa 1966, Gulf War 1991/2003, and on and on. Current on-going conflicts (how is war defined by the UN?) include Israel-Palestine, Panjshir, Armenia-Azerbaijan, Afghanistan-Iran, Sudan-Ethiopia. There was just way too many to list every pseudo-war or conflict since 1945. As I write this, Russia is building up troops on its border with the Ukraine, and Biden and Putin are planning a meeting to address what is going on.

If you think world peace is possible, look at the fundamentals: balance and free-will.

First fundamental: As a planet of balance, there will always be imbalance to deal with. This does not say that we are not evolving towards higher vibrations, which we are. But relations on Earth, including our relationship with climate, will always experience intermittent states of imbalance, whether major or minor. War is easy to point to, but imbalances are inevitable and constant. As a quick example, our dog, Merlin, is full of bounding energy right now because the ambient temperature outside is -24C and we do not want to take him for a walk for both his and our sakes—dog-energy-imbalance.

Second fundamental: As a planet of free-will, there will always be people that choose love and those that choose not-love. War and conflict are in the realm of not-love. Spiritual practices, kindness, and peace are in the realm of love.

Add the fundamentals: When the wilful choice to not-love creates the imbalance of conflict, war happens. When the wilful choice to love creates the balance of higher vibration, spirituality happens.

The disappointment that arises is that denial leads to the thought that we are what we are not. Denial avoids the thought that we live among those that do not choose love and among those that do choose love. Denial leads us to think that others live as we do. Reality is: some people are good and some are bad. World peace runs up against the quandary of choosing love/not-love in a world of balance/imbalance.

The realization that comes with adding these two ‘1’s’ to make ‘2’ has set my mind at ease with the idea that, while I choose love (at least half the time), half of the rest of the world chooses not-love (at least half the time). As I am that I am (to be defined later), the Earth is what it is. World peace?...... LOL Great Expectations!

Makes me think of Neville Chamberlain's words as he waved a flimsy sheet of paper with Hitler's signature in 1938: "Peace in our Time".

The Choice: Illusion or Not!

    Yes, we are supposed to be living on a planet of free-will.  And we do, but do we?  Sure-we-do, but you need to know how it works if you are going to make the choices that suit you.  First question for you… do you want to be a good person or not?  You quite clearly have the option to choose to be a Donald.  You also have the option to be a kind, generous, nice, and loving person.
    If spirituality is your goal, what choice do you think that entails?  Without further adieu, the will to be spiritual means choosing love.  The next question is… are you consciously aware enough to see the difference between choosing love and choosing that which is not-love?  Do NOT take your conscious awareness for granted.  Lots of nice people do bad things.  Someone famous once said: “Forgive them Lord for they know not what they do.”  When it comes to choosing to be spiritual, do you know what you are doing?
    All these questions pose the challenge that is inherent to living on Earth.  The challenge is to choose without knowing that the choice is the key to the universe.  Choosing opens doors.  Do you want to descend to the basement or ascend to the top floor?  Where on the scale of high and low vibration do you want to be?  Do you want to live in the mundane world, or do you aspire to be a bodhisattva and achieve the ascension?  Indeed, you have the free will to take yourself where you want to go.  Let’s not get into denial.
    Do you want to be spiritual?  The spiritual path begins with the choices to be loving.  Kindness, generosity, honesty, and being nice are the conditions that lead up to being loving.  These and similar preliminary choices demonstrate to-the-universe that you are willing to fulfil all the conditions that lead to love.  Oh! for heaven’s sake!  Do not get cemented into the illusion that unconditional love is the way forward.  Unconditional love follows the fulfillment of all the conditions that make love possible.  Love without honesty, respect, and all the other conditions does not happen.  So, turn it around—love is conditional to the achievement of all its attributes.  Love without peace—hah! … not possible.
    The choice then is to choose love.  There is a very technical, almost scientific way of conceiving how this works.  Do you want to connect with the enlightened universe; do you want to achieve enlightenment and the ascension?  Do you want to be spiritual enough to connect with your angelic spirit guides and receive the wisdom and knowledge of the universe?  Do you want to gain access to the consciousness of nirvana?  Well… all these choices are dependent on love.
    Consider the way the universe is constructed.  Having access to the Oneness of the all-pervasive, divine, and loving heavens comes with the merging of vibrations.  Who gets to take consciousness into the higher realms?  Vibration must be in harmony.  The gatekeepers of the divine universe are not going to permit entry to individuals that do not know love!  How else could it be?  The divine heavens are total and complete omnipresent love.  No drunks allowed!  No deviants, no murderers, no rapists, no sarcastic people, no cheats!  The only vibration that is consistent with the divine universe (as opposed to the not-so-divine universe, i.e., the dark side) is love.  The heavens are set up to permit entry only to those who have demonstrated love enough to bring their vibrations to an adequate level to be in harmony with the divine.
    So, back to the challenge that is inherent to the exercise of free-will.  If you do not have sufficient conscious awareness to know enough to choose love, your life is not going to find its way onto the spiritual path.  If you are consciously aware of what is required, do you really want to be spiritual?  If not, conscious awareness will recede into the darkness and you will lose it along with your place on the spiritual path.  If so, whether aware or not, the prerequisite is to choose love.  With enough love, the heavens come home. 
    The illusion is to think that choosing without love will take you anywhere but down.  So, choose love and I will see you in the heavens.

Creating Crystals that work with the Emotions

Stilbite and Prehnite Formation, 
Metamorphosis and Ocean Filtering

     Water, whether in oceans or lakes, filters the incoming vibration leaving a partial vibration to manifest into physical form. Water implies the fluidity of the emotions.  What is left after filtering, and what crystallizes into the depths of the oceans, are the emotional aspects of the manifesting vibrations.  Water filters out those vibrations that are not associated with the emotions.  Crystals that have been filtered by water, therefore, work with the emotions and the emotional body.
     From a scientific-geological perspective, the Stilbites and Prehnite were formed after they rose to the surface from deep within continental formations as metamorphic activity brought them forward.  The first perspective: of descending through the oceans, and this second perspective: of rising with metamorphic upheaval, may seem to be contradictory.  How can a crystal manifest both in the ocean and rise from volcanoes?  To resolve this apparent discrepancy in crystal formation and to ensure the integrity of my channel, I returned to my divine guidance.  

     The additional channel received asserts that both perspectives are true and do not conflict.  Yes, Prehnite and the Stilbites, along with other stones that were filtered in the oceans, do work with the emotional body.  And, yes, they were created in the ocean well ahead of the land masses that morphed into continents.  Water held these minerals deep beneath its waves for a very long time.  The way Prehnite and the Stilbites formed was that their masses first descended into the oceans as Earth took on its planetary form. They formed layers or crusts upon the ocean floor.  After that, other minerals also settled on the ocean floor to become layered on top of the layers of Prehnite and Stilbite. The layers containing Prehnite and Stilbite were compressed unevenly. As continental plates shifted and the heat within the Earth forced eruptions, many crystalline formations were moved about, and some came up to Earth’s surface.

     The buried layers holding the Prehnite or Stilbite vibrations started as having infiltrated into the Earth’s earliest oceans.  They were filtered, formed layers, and were buried deep on the ocean floor.  Land masses shifted causing even deeper burial.  With planetary heating and cooling, metamorphic action brought the Prehnite or Stilbite layers upward in volcanic-like upheavals.  The high heat, fast-upward-motion, and quick cooling caused contraction that resulted in a repeat of the layering action.  Following this further upheaval, the newly formed layers settled, often growing upon foundation minerals. However, the foundation minerals, such as Laumontite in Prehnite’s case, were not stable and later dissipated out of the formation leaving these newly formed layers with inner tubules.  Water and some debris may have temporarily displaced the unstable foundation minerals.  This further exposure to water within the tubules quite often gave Prehnite or Stilbite a recharge of their original emotional energies.  Water facilitates the more rapid movement of energy and facilitates the emotional vibrations which resonate with the emotional body.
     The metamorphic action of volcanic upheaval brought the long-buried Prehnite or Stilbite upward in a fast process that gave each its distinctive shape.  The original channelled information points to ocean filtering but omits the subsequent burial and volcanic upheaval.  The Prehnite or Stilbite change shape, but do not change their original essences, while undergoing these metamorphic processes.  Because their vibrations were filtered when they first settled deep in the watery crevasses of Earth’s earliest oceans, Prehnite, Stilbite, and other similar stones, retain their affiliations with the emotions and emotional energies.

Base Chakra Confusion: Red versus Black

Image of the 7 primary chakras

     Myths abound in the literature of New Age Spirituality.
  Discernment is such a gift to the aspiring devotee!

     I have heard so many times from a plethora of different sources that the Base Chakra is Red.  This is not even to say that the Base Chakra resonates with the red ranges of light frequencies.  Most of these sources have yet to link chakras with the flow of light or venture an explanation as to how the chakra works with light.  They simply say the Base Chakra is Red. 

     Throughout my books, The Story of Light, (both volumes) and The Crystal Textbook, the base chakra is ascribed the colour black and the pelvic chakra is red.  Are the chakras black and red?  Can you actually see Red?  Rather than having specific colours, the base and pelvic chakras work with the black and red ranges of light frequencies respectively.  If you are seeing colours, it’s not the chakras, but rather the frequencies that the chakras are working with.  However, numerous other sources of new age writings, as well as, loose translations of the ancient Hindu texts, ascribe the colour red to the base chakra and now this misperception is all over the internet.

     In volume one of The Story of Light, Path to Enlightenment, Chapter 1, section 1.3, entitled, “Black: the Light of Earth, the black light frequency is described as being Earth’s indigenous light frequency. The reasoning is that, in the very beginning, at a time when light was absent from Earth, only the lowest and slowest of all frequencies could descend into the density of the physical plane. This was the black light frequency.  Therefore, Earth’s journey to enlightenment begins with the assimilation of black light.  The natural consequence is that, first, the Earth resonates with black light.  Second, all grounding is within the black frequency ranges.  And, third, to best harmonize with the Earth, the base chakra has traditionally resonated with the black light frequency range. 

     Why then do other literary sources ascribe the colour red to the base chakra?  Is the source of writing just parroting the vast proliferation of internet perceptions?  I first wish to point to an interesting blog from a scholarly source that gives “The Real Story on the Chakras”.  You can go to the blog article at this web address.  Basically, the blog says that the understanding of the Chakras has found its way into the unchallenged thinking of new age practitioners as a derivative of doubtful translations by a couple of Western writers and a few 20th century Gurus that are equally questionable.  Finally, someone has come along that has taken the time to actually understand the Sanskrit language before offering an interpretation of the extremely complex ideas that go with spirituality as written in the ancient Hindu texts.  I nearly jumped for joy when I read this blog post.  Here was the real goods to dispel the superficiality of a lot of spiritual delusions. 

     I am also compelled to offer my own explanation of the colours related to the base and pelvic chakras.  As the Body of Knowledge about divine light is the foundation of all my teachings, the comprehensive understanding of how each of the chakras works with light can be found in my Udemy course, which is on the subject of chakra empowerment using crystal layouts (search: Roger Joyeux, Crystal Layouts 3, Chakra Empowerment).  How could the student ever hope to understand how the crystals work with the chakras, if s/he did not first understand how the chakras work?  

      Back to the confusion. 

     Poorly translated Hindu texts aside, the reader must first discern the origins of the source of writing that talks of a red base chakra.  Is the source of writing from among the souls who incarnated onto the Earth at the beginning of time?  Or, is the source of writing from among souls who incarnated in this current millennium?  The soul’s origin makes a difference. 

     The original arrivals on Earth began at the lowest levels of Earth’s dense vibration and at the beginning of time.  The recent arrivals began in the new age, with no exposure to the extreme density that dominated Earth’s beginnings.  Earth’s vibration in the new age is almost ready for the ascension, and is, therefore, significantly higher than at any previous time.  Many new age authors, who make reference to the base chakra, are recent arrivals from far away planets and star systems.  The Pleiades and Sirius star systems have made themselves known, but these are not the only ones.  The recent arrivals on Earth bring a different perspective, but more importantly, their message is unique to their own home world.  They are here to help Earth through its process of ascension, but equally importantly, they are here to learn what Earth has to offernamely, to learn about life in a physical world.

     The source of confusion comes from the application of perceptions that are limited to the new age.  The vibration of the incarnate body of the original arrivals on Earth so long ago began at a much lower frequency rate than the vibration of the incarnate body of the recent arrivals.  The base chakra of the original arrival has resonated traditionally and primarily with black light frequencies, but the base chakra of the recent arrival resonates at a frequency rate that is a full octave higher.  The recent arrival’s base chakra does not reach down into the lower ranges of the grounding black light frequencies.  It, therefore, resides within the red light frequency range with limited understanding of the lower black light.

     In their quest to help Earth through written publication, the recent arrivals write from the limited perspective of their own vibrations.  This perspective reflects familiarity with the higher vibrations that presently dominate the current new age, but not familiarity with the traditional lower vibrations that are still very much present on Earth.  Black light, then, is not innate to the recent arrival who is still learning about life on Earth.  The new arrival’s vibration is impressively higher and quite appealing to the devotee who is in the process of spiritual awakening.

Representation of the Base Chakra

    To the soul that has been on Earth since the beginning, the base chakra carries black light frequencies, resonates readily with the Earth, and responds to love and the divine vibration of Smoky Quartz for its opening.  In contrast, the soul of the recent arrival sees the base chakra at a higher vibration level.  The new arrival’s base chakra is within the red frequency ranges.  That is their truth.  The need to open the base chakra is integral to the original arrivals’ spiritual journey, but may not be necessary or even mentioned by the recent arrival, except in an empowerment context, which assumes that the base chakra is already open.

     The vast majority of souls on Earth are not recent arrivals.  The traditional need to open the base chakra, at the start of the spiritual journey, still applies.  Understanding who is proselytizing about red base chakras—the internet, recent arrivals, or misrepresented sanskrit texts—is a major step in clearing the confusion about how to proceed in achieving the spiritual awakening that is still required to graduate from incarnate life on Earth. 

     In your discernment, are you a recent arrival? Are you listening to sources that mimic poor scholarship?  Or are you one of the souls who have toiled over the many millennia to bring Earth’s vibration into alignment for the coming ascension?  If you are the latter, your base chakra resonates with the black light ranges of frequencies, and you will have to proceed through your spiritual awakening, walk the spiritual path, and achieve the enlightened state in the same way as has always been on Earth.
