This Week’s Quotation:
Heaven and earth are one; that is, a state of wholeness, which is the state of holiness; therefore the ghost, as it relates to the material aspect of being, is the holy ghost. The true ghost is no longer absent; it’s present; it is wholly present in the dimensions of the earth of the individual. But of course, it’s not just an individual matter because the fact of the matter is that we are not all separate people with walls in between us, the way it seems now. It seems that way now because the ghost is unholy; there’s no sense of wholeness. The individual sense of wholeness brings with it the collective sense of wholeness.
So as long as the veil is in place, no matter how human beings strive to experience brotherhood and all this, it eludes them. It is impossible to experience on that basis. There must be wholeness in individual experience for wholeness in collective experience to be known. But this wholeness working out in individual experience, by reason of the creative process through those who hunger and thirst, is also working out in a collective sense..~ Martin Cecil
As I read Martin’s words, I am aware of how controversial they are. They run against the tide of culture in our post-modern world.
Often, when you share an Attunement with someone, they are seeing their health and well-being on an individual basis. Even though their everyday life may be enmeshed with family and friends, they see their Attunement as relating to them as an individual. And, of course, it does. But there is far more to it than that.
More and more, our culture tells us that happiness and fulfillment are individual—that it is about me, not us. The experience of Attunement reverses that trend. Inevitably, as we attune, our energy field fills out. And by the very nature of the human energy field, it is something we hold in common with other human beings. An attuned person becomes a generation station in the collective energy field, especially the field they share with people close to them.
The other controversial element of Martin’s words is that he “borrows” words from a traditional religious context to describe the Attunement experience—heaven, holy ghost, veil, and hungering and thirsting. Yet it’s clear that how he uses those words is anything but traditional.
Why would he do that?
Post-modern culture is increasingly secular and increasingly individually oriented. But to know Attunement and thrive as human beings, we must reclaim the sacred for ourselves and embrace not only who we are as individuals but also who we are together. This is not regressing to something traditional, conservative, or even tribal. And it is not an attempt to launch ourselves into some brave new world of the future. It is entering an experience of how we are made and how our human capacity is designed to work now as we know Attunement.
What Is Attunement?
Attunement is a consciousness practice and an energy medicine practice that leads to personal spiritual regeneration.
