Divine Structure of Reality: Session VII: Incarnation and Evolution in the Divine Kingdom

OUTLINE SESSION SEVEN
INCARNATION AND EVOLUTION IN THE DIVINE KINGDOM II

BEYOND OUR WORLD

I.
a. Two aspects of the Soul of Atik Yamin are connected to our planet.
The nefesh of Atik Yamin oversees the day to day life of the planet.
Generally, this part of the Soul is what the Kabbalah is referring to when it uses the name Atik Yamin.

b. The second part of the Soul, the ruach, was active during the creation of our planet. This part of Atik Yamin is now focused in the greater life of the Solar system. In the Kabbalah, this part of the Soul is given the name Raisha Delo Ityayda – the Hidden Face of God.

II.
a. Beyond our earth-centric perspective, our planet takes its place as part of the Body of the Divine Being Who is the Lord of our Solar System.
b. In the Kabbalah, this Great Being is called Atika Kadisha, the Holy Ancient One.
c. Just as a human being are linked to his or her spiritual source in the higher worlds, the Lord of the World and the Lord of the Sun are linked to their spiritual sources on higher planes.
d. They receive help and guidance from these Cosmic Lives which helps Them to grow and evolve.
e. These Cosmic lives are part of even greater Divine Beings, Who embrace whole galaxies in their Consciousness.
f. Yet all these lives are continually growing and evolving.
g. And each of us plays a role in the unfolding process of Divine evolution, and the movement of the whole Universe toward perfection.

THE WORLD CRISES AND THE EVOLUTION
OF THE LORD OF THE WORLD

I.
c. The story of the evolution of the planet is the story of the evolution of Atik Yamim, the Lord of the World.
d. Just as we go through our difficulties and struggles, so too the Lord of the World must overcome obstacles as part of His spiritual evolution.
e. A world crisis is a spiritual opportunity for Atik Yamin to grow and evolve.

II.
a. The present ecological condition of the planet represents such a crisis in the life of the Lord of the World.
b. This ecological crisis also provides humanity with an opportunity to take a step forward in its evolution by recognizing the underlying unity and interdependence of all life.

III.
a. The world crisis is not just a crisis of form; it is also a crisis of the Spirit.
b. There is a great battle that is taking place between those who value openness, freedom and unity, and those who reject these values.
c. Surmounting this aspect of the crisis is as much a part of the world’s growth and evolution as overcoming the ecological dangers that the planet confronts.
d. The crisis, therefore, is the reflection of an inner process taking place in the consciousness of Atik Yamim that will lift ultimately the entire planet onto a different level of awareness.

Though we have spoken about the Lord of the World and the Lord of the Sun, as well as other Divine Beings, it is essential to always keep in mind that ultimately all these differentiations are an illusion. There is only One God, and all life on all of the planes is part of His Life and Consciousness.
