Chapter Five " the religion of atlantis" continued...  

So our 'religion', and work, continues on. And now, because of the time and situation, you [he pointed at me!], will soon be publicly revealing the teachings of the Children, and heralding the coming spiritual changes.

Remember, because of the unique nature and purity of the Atlantean Children's spiritual way, it is as valuable today as it was then. Their teachings and methods can help anyone return to the Universal Spirit, achieve enlightenment, and live in harmony with Universal Law & Universal Will."

"Thank you Noah."

"It was my honor to help you." And with that, he bowed and kissed my hand with the feeling of love and respect that one might only expect to see offered to his teacher, or the head of the order. It was rather shocking to me, because I felt I wasn't worthy of it, didn't deserve it, and that it wasn't appropriate for someone of my humble station. But he was honoring who I was inside, which at the time, I didn't really see in myself (even though my ego thought it did). Nevertheless, it was there, just waiting to manifest. [Author's note: Now, as I deal with my students and others, I also see who they really are inside - their potential - and support that. We relate to that as well as their present level of consciousness. To reinforce and strengthen the Inner Being, while attacking and starving the selfish separate self, is our constant function and duty]. Then Noah put his hands together and made a gesture of spiritual respect to the other novice monks in the chamber, and crawled off through the little door.

Crossing Cultures

The next day, Noah discussed more about different cultures, and the religions or spiritual traditions of various cultures.

"Some spiritual traditions are so rooted in the culture they are from, that people from 'foreign' cultures or lands find them difficult to adapt to. Sometimes there are even language barriers and cultural customs that have become part of the religion. For instance, some paths require learning or chanting in Japanese or East Indian languages, rather than translations of those languages. Many require performing or participating in rituals that are unique to a foreign culture, even though they evolved specifically because of those cultures. While some paths have legitimate reasons for such things, most do not, and their requirements are limiting, and often nothing more than dogma and cultural bias."

"Boy I can relate to that Noah. A year or so ago I entered a Zen monastery in the U.S. for about 6 months. And they did everything in Japanese, and in Japanese style, and wouldn't explain to me what the translations of the Japanese chants were. Even still, I liked a great deal of it, and I definitely got something out of it, but it just wasn't ultimately my right path."

"No. It is a very good path, but clearly, this is yours. If for no other reason than to teach me patience."

"What?"

"I was just joking younger brother. You had a good point. It's just that you are here for me to learn some things, just as I am here for you to learn some. But you are ultimately here for the world, more than I. But let me get on with what I was saying.

Unlike other traditions and religions, our spiritual and philosophical teachings lack any emphasis on religious dogma and have no cultural embedding. The teachers are from every part of the world. And the universality of the teachings and methods easily adapt to those individuals from any culture, who have an open mind, and are truly spiritually inclined. Thus, it is a path that is readily accessible and useful to people from any land, if they wish to take advantage of it."

To someone like me who had previously studied many religions and cultures, the teachings crossed over seemingly opposing religious boundaries with a unifying wisdom. They were also "complete"- filling in all the blanks left by my previous studies, and tying in the aspects of truth I had found in other paths, into one comprehensive whole.

A Natural Spiritual Path based on Universal Laws

My next course involved how the Atlantean teachings came about, and what they were based on. It was to be given by the elder monk Zarathustra. I'd "heard on the grapevine" that he had long ago originally come from Germany. He was quite well studied and intellectual from what I'd seen of him so far. I liked him, and he even let me be involved in some very sophisticated vibrational experiments he was conducting (which gave me the foundation for my later vibrational studies and developments). He had a great scientific insight into such matters, and was perfect for teaching this course.

"The beliefs and teachings that the Children of the Law™ of One had, and have, were not formed based on faith. Most of the basis of them came from Atlantis, and thus to us, our knowledge, philosophies, and practices are simply gleaned from the 'scientific facts' of Universal Laws that govern all things in the Universe, including the use of the mind and energy. They are merely the result of 'observations' of the Universal forces that are involved in the practical applications of our spiritual and physical existence. Thus, even today, understanding the substance of even the ancient 'beliefs', requires no faith, but rather a certain quality of 'intuitive logic'. In fact, the path urges us not to take the teachings on faith, but to EXPERIENCE God and higher consciousness directly. That way we can really know, rather than just taking something on faith and 'hoping really bad' that it's true. There is no more powerful way to change your life in a real and lasting way, than to directly experience Universal Consciousness, and thus experience and know Oneness with the Universal Spirit/God.

The teachings both give us methods to expand our awareness and directly experience God and Universal Consciousness, while also explaining to us the effects of Universal Laws in simple terms, even if the Law itself is difficult to understand."

"Uh... that statement was difficult to understand." Novice Vicente said.

"Ok. For instance, you may not understand the complex laws of gravity that physicists grapple with, but you can understand how Newton's observation of an apple falling from a tree led him to a scientific conception of 'What goes up must come down'. Right?"

"Yes."

"More simply still, your own experience with the law of gravity has taught you about the effects it has on your life. For instance, you wouldn't ignore the law of gravity and walk off a 30th floor balcony, yet how many people ignore even more important Universal Laws because they don't really understand their effects factually? So the ancient Atlantean teachings offer us a way to understand the effects of Universal Laws on our lives, and thus a way to benefit from them."

"Yes, I understand you now, but I want to learn more about spirituality, not physics."

"True spirituality is tied to Universal Laws though. And if you want to consider that just plain physics, fine. But this scientific approach doesn't mean that the path of the Children is a cold and clinical one. Far from it. Nowhere else will you find more emphasis on compassion and Love. Instead, the scientific basis in the teachings makes the ways and beliefs of the Children of the Law of One™ more simple and unique. As opposed to other religious orders, it is a "natural" religion, or more appropriately, a natural spiritual path. It is natural because it is based on nature - not just the nature of this planet, but the nature of the Universe. It was founded on an understanding of the way the Universe functions, and endeavors to apply the laws and flow that govern it, to human conditions. The ways of the Children were thus developed to insure that we are in our proper place in the grand scheme of things. Rather than encouraging blind faith in an unknown God and a dogma, it encourages knowing and experiencing the Universal Spirit yourself, and becoming One with it. By these very virtues, it is not as much a 'religion', as it is a 'way' of being One with All of creation, and the Creator, both. Nor is it just physics by any means. This is not your garden variety religion, and it has a beautiful simplicity to it."

"Science-Magic"

One morning I decided to explore a bit of the central pyramid, just to "check out" some of this incredible "thing". I was walking up one of the chamber halls there, when all of a sudden, I saw a strange moving light coming from a small side-tunnel. Before I could even look into it, Zin-uru, came crawling out. He was one of the Initiates at the monastery, an Adept monk who was the personal teacher of many of the elder and novice monks who worked with monastery's energy systems. He was holding a sort of lantern/flashlight, which explained the strange light.

From day one, I had heard the phrase "science-magic" used around the monastery. Sometimes it was referring to the monastery's technology, but sometimes it was regarding the "creation" of our personal lives. But when the term was used in reference to the monastery's technology, it was often used in the same breath as the name of the Adept Zinuru. I had also come across references to 'science-magic' in the ancient texts in the library, but it had not been explained to me in any of my courses yet, so I decided to ask him about it while I had a chance. I didn't know if he would have the time, or inclination to speak to a monk like me, but it was worth a shot.

"Zinuru, if you have a moment, could I please speak with you?"

"A moment, a moment. I suppose I do. Yes. No. It's gone now. Sorry. But yes, I'll speak with you now anyway."

"Can you tell me about this 'science-magic' I keep hearing about."

"No problem. It has been said that all the teachings of the Children of the Law of One™ , are based within 'Science-magic'. Have you heard that?"

"Yes, I think so."

"You think so. Very well. Well, they are all based on it. Let me explain the history of that. To our ancestors, what many consider the 'mysteries' of life were not confusing or complex, but simply a matter of applying their understanding of Universal Laws."

"I just had a course about that."

"Good, then you'll save me some time. Our Atlantean ancestors easily manipulated vibration, using thought, within a framework of scientific facts. God, and spirituality, were not vague concepts. The Universal Spirit was not unknown to them, or some being that was 'out there somewhere'. And magic and miracles were not just something that existed in fairy tales and religious parables from days gone by. They were the scientific workings of spiritual forces on physical matter. Spirituality, as well as materiality and physical life, were all simply based on scientific facts of Universal Laws. For instance, they understood that psychic phenomenon, electricity, magnetism, gravity, light, sound, space, time, and such, were all related, and aspects of the same thing, and all followed Universal Laws. The barbarian cultures that lived around us, or came into contact with our ancestors, couldn't understand these things, so they just lumped it all together as 'magic' - some mysterious 'something' that could only be created and wielded by gods, devils, or witchdoctors with strange powers and rituals. But what gives anything the appearance of magic. If not deceptive illusions or tricks, what is real 'magic' other than creating or altering energy, and matter which is comprised of energy? So in a very real sense, much of what we do is magic, but it is based in science, not superstition. Thus, science-magic is inherent in the Children of the Law of One™ 's entire approach to life and 'religion'. Visualization, for instance, works like magic. You see it happening, and it happens. Visualization is used successfully in everything from Zen Archery, to healing - and all such things have that appearance of 'working like magic'. Here, let me give you a little demonstration." He had me stand behind him, and lift him up by the waist. It was easy. Then he said, "You should be able to that again, yes?"

"Of course," I said.

"Then do so."
