In answer to my plea for help understanding how the universe at its highest levels is organized and operates, Suzy Ward sent me a chapter of Matthew’s Revelations for a New Era (available from https://www.matthewbooks.com).
Matthew takes us on a tour of Reality at levels so sublime, words would fail us.
I wish I had infinitely more time to research Matthew’s writings. After the Reval, I’ll put a team of historians to work on the task. First a database, then articles, then books.
Here’s Matthew on the highest levels of Reality and how the rest, including us, originated and fit in! Thank you, Suzy.
HIERARCHY OF CREATOR
MATTHEW: To understand the purpose of our lives, there must be an understanding of our relationship with our Creator. It is a relationship as simply stated as the father and his children, but the origin of our souls within Creator cannot be stated that easily.
Creator/Creation is the proper designation of the Totality. It also is the most descriptive, encompassing both the total essence and the creative action. For simplicity, we usually say only Creator.
There was nothing before Creator, and nothing except the sleeping power of Creator until Its self-expression. In that moment, which some have called the “Big Bang,” came the First Expression, the original fragmentation of Creator’s love and wisdom and power into soul entities. The term “fragmentation” in this context is not a severing or a breaking down of the whole, it is a sharing or bestowing upon the divisions the same properties of the whole.
However it may seem an irreverent analogy, I shall liken the hierarchy of Creator to a pie because it is a good visual aid. The entire pie is the soul of Creator: the omnipotent Totality of the cosmos. At the center resides the mind of Creator: the residence of omniscience. Starting at that central point, imagine a series of
concentric rings superimposed over the whole pie. The rings indicate the spheres of the hierarchy, which are flexible divisions of Creator.
At this point the visual aid requires an unusual perspective for an accurate representation of happenings. Imagine the pie cut into countless slices whose widest ends touch the limitless mind of Creator and become narrower as the slices enter rings successively farther from that beginning. The slivers represent the fragments of Creator that have been created throughout all time into independently experiencing entities. Every tiny portion contains proportionally exactly the same ingredients as the total pie. It is the same with all of creation. NOTHING is separate from Creator.
When the soul of Creator first divided Itself, each of Its fragments within that first sphere had the identical powers of Creator. Those fragments are the highest angels. There is no form within this first sphere, only perfect light and purity. This is where the Christed energy generates, and where the paternal power called Archangel Michael and the other archangels reside.
During that time of pure awareness, Creator gave to all the angelic portions of Itself the ultimate of gifts, free will with its inherent power of co-creating ability. Thus, in the next expression, Creator and the archangels created the next level of angels, not as close to Creator mind as the archangels, but still collective light entities in purity, without form or substance.
In conjunction with Creator, the angelic realms created the third sphere of being, life form potentials that, after timeless reflection, at will could be discarnate or could manifest in form. These life form potentials became the celestial bodies of the universes and the gods who later were dispersed to reign over them. One of the gods
became the supreme being of our universe and, with Creator, created all life within it. Since our god is called God by some Earth religions and that is how you think of Him, Mother, that is how I shall refer to Him.
For ever-greater experiencing, God’s original beings, which are called root souls, expressed themselves into divisions called soul fragments or soul sparks, or God fragments or God sparks.
Similarly and successively, those soul entities divided themselves into sparklets, who divided themselves into subsparklets. Entities created by further fragmentation also are called subsparklets. This procession does not define soul evolution, but only the order of lineage. The myriad individual, independent and inviolate lifetimes of every soul at all levels of fragmentation are called personages.
These or other designations may be given to show the order of lineage of the souls in the various spheres radiating outward from the mind of Creator, but simply “soul” is enough. There is no difference in each one’s connection with Creator or its makeup in proportional measure. ALWAYS the life force of even the most minute independent soul is its own inviolate self connected inseparably to Creator, just as every single cell in your body is both a viable, independently functioning cell and at the same time is an inseparable composite part of you.
SUZANNE: Where does our current population fit into the subdivided spheres?
Primarily at subsparklet level. Remember, Mother, that’s NOT soul evolution, only the order of emergence of the personage souls. I think your expression “old soul” pertains to the evolution part and not the order of lineage. Those may have nothing at all to do with each other, because spiritual growth — or not — is determined by each soul’s free will choices and not how many lifetimes it took to make the choices that elevated it to a higher level of evolution.
