I’ve been asked to write an article discussing the “structure” of the divine order. It’s challenging to write about something that does and does not exist, especially with Third/Fourth-Dimensional eyes. But I’ll try.
The origin (and the destination) of the round of life is the One without a second, the Source, the Void, about whom nothing can be said. Some ancient sages, including Jesus, called this “God the Father.”
The Source is silent and still. The Source and love are the same. The Source is omnipotent, omniscient, omnipresent. To realize that Source is the reason why all of us were created. We climb Jacob’s ladder of consciousness. God stands at the top.
When we realize the One, God meets God and the purpose for which we were created is fulfilled. We then return and help others to have the same realization. Because that meeting is joyous beyond imagination, life is said to be a lila or divine play.
To create the world in which we sparks of divinity grow and learn and eventually realize ourselves as God, the One entered into created reality as movement and sound, as a sine wave, which creates, preserves, and transforms/destroys. We call this universal creative vibration, this primal energy God the Mother or the Divine Mother. Hindus call “her” (she is not a “she” just as “he” is not a he) Shakti or Energy.
Hindus break this sine wave down and personify it as:
(1) Creation = Brahma = The cosmic force called rajas.
(2) Preservation = Vishnu = The cosmic force called sattwa.
(3) Transformation = Shiva = The cosmic force called thamas.
The Divine Mother has been known by a thousand names. (1) The Father does not speak. The Mother is his voice, which leads her to be called the Word of God, the Voice in the Silence, the Voice in the Wilderness, etc. She is known to all religions as Wisdom or Sophia (Solomon), Royal Glory (Zarathustra), the Holy Spirit (Jesus), etc.
When the Divine Mother comes through in a channeling, to all intents and purposes, we’re talking to the Father. No one gets to the Father except through her, so to speak.
When the Mother creates worlds without end, she builds a body for its inhabitants and the Father deposits a divine spark (the soul, the Self, the Christ, the Atman) in the prepared body. This spark completes the Trinity, which in Christianity is called the Father, Son and Holy Ghost and in Hinduism Brahman, Atman, and Shakti. This is the Divine Family.
The first created beings were the seraphim, according to Archangel Michael. But then came the archangels and then more seraphim and then….
Steve Beckow: X said that archangels were born first from God. I thought seraphim were. What is true?
Archangel Michael: First of all, it was the seraphim, but then it was the archangels. But it was not all the seraphim and then the archangels. There was a little intermingling. (2)
While early Christian fathers saw the angelic kingdom as a hierarchy, starting with the angels and culminating in the Seraphim, Archangel Michael says it’s not hierarchical. Each angelic realm was created with its purposes in mind and each is equal. The angels do not want to become archangels, etc.
Below these are the dimensional realms, such as the human. There are twelve dimensions, Archangel Michael told me recently.
Steve Beckow: How many dimensions are there Lord?
Archangel Michael: Twelve.
Steve: How come some people talk about the 21st plane and the 30th dimension?
AAM: They are misunderstanding the construct of the human existence.
Also understand that within each dimension, there are 12 planes. Think of it as a 12 step program for each dimension. (3)
The human body, which conforms to what is called the Adam Kadmon template, is common in the universe. It’s bilaterally symmetrical, bipedal, with stereoscopic vision, physical senses, a large bicameral brain, etc. David Wilcock explains:
‘The human body shows up in the galaxy on every planet where life can form. It’s a natural evolution. Some might get there by an insect; some might get there by a lizard; some might get there by mammals like we do; some might get there by cetaceans; some might get there even by vegetation, apparently.” (4)
Inside the different bodies is the same one soul.
I used to believe, as I think did most of our terrestrial sources, that we progressed from mineral to plant to animal to human to angel on our journey from God to God. Archangel Michael has told me that that view of things doesn’t quite reflect reality, but I haven’t explored the matter further with him. When I do, I’ll round out the picture, but this is as clear as it is to me for now.
