Now it came to pass in the thirtieth year, in the fourth month, in the fifth day of the month, as I was among the captives by the river of Chebar, that the heavens were opened, and I saw visions of God. And I looked, and behold, a whirlwind came out of the north, a great cloud, and a fire infolding itself, and a brightness was about it, and out of the midst, thereof as the colour of amber, out of the midst of fire. Also out of the midst thereof came the likeness of four living creatures. And this was their appearance; they had the likeness of a man. The appearance of the wheels and their work was like unto the colour of a beryl and they four had one likeness: and their appearance and their work was as it were a wheel in the middle of a wheel. When they went, they went upon their four sides and they turned not when they went. And above the firmament that was over their heads was the likeness of a throne as the appearance of a sapphire stone: and upon the likeness of the throne was the likeness as the appearance of a man above upon it. This was the appearance of the likeness of the glory of the Lord, And When I saw it, I fell upon my face, and I heard a voice of one that spake. And he said unto me, Son of man, stand upon thy feet, and I will speak unto thee. And the spirit entered into me when he spake unto me, and set me upon my feet, that I heard him that spake unto me. Then the spirit took me up, and I heard behind me a voice of great rushing, saying Blessed be the glory of the Lord from his place. I heard also the noise of the wings of the living creatures that touched one another, and the noise of the wheels over against them, and a noise of a great rushing. So the spirit lifted me up, and took me away, and I went in bitterness, in the heat of my spirit: but the hand of the Lord was strong upon me. Then I came to them of the captivity at Telabib, that dwelt by the river of Chebar, and I sat where they sat, and remained there astonished among them seven days. ~ Book of Ezekiel (Holy Bible)
From the point of view of Self-Realization or enlightenment, there are no individuals. The Self, or God, exists as all manifestation. As our spiritual knowledge grows, our identification with the individual body-mind diminishes and our consciousness expands into universal consciousness. The life force continuous to act but its thoughts and actions are no longer limited to an individual; they become the total manifestation.
I have come to the conclusion that not only are Star children amongst us, but the rapid advancement of the human species is due to alien intervention in our bodies and minds… ~ Dr. Roger Leir ~ (The Aliens and the Scalpel)
To fully understand the meaning of Spirit, we must accept one direct principle, and that is…life is indestructible. It cannot be destroyed. It can change form and its rate of living consciousness; it can be transmuted, and its frequency changed to higher and lower levels, but it cannot be destroyed… ~ Ronald Beesley
The material world, which has been taken for a world of blind mechanism, is in reality a Spiritual world seen very partially and imperfectly. The only real world is the Spiritual world… ~ J.B.S. Haldane
Spirit is the real and eternal; matter is the unreal and temporal… ~ Mary Baker Eddy
