Forgiveness of Sin on an Energetic Level

#1 Postby Tau Malachi » Fri Apr 29, 2016 11:30 am

Forgiveness of Sin on an Energetic Level

It has been taught by sages of wisdom that sin and righteousness is “etched” on our bones, and likewise that it is “written” on our foreheads, and it is said that with the Holy Spirit Tzaddikim are able to see this, and likewise maggidim, the angels of heaven, are able to see this. Given that our bones, as well as our flesh, is impermanent and are “dust returning to dust,” we may inquire what this means, for clearly it is not literal, though it points to the reality of the karmic continuum of the soul and the preservation of karmic patterns whether negative or positive.

“Sin is etched on our bones,” this corresponds with neshamah, our heavenly soul, and it is called “bones” because bones are the most lasting aspect of the body, enduring long after the flesh is gone, and neshamah is what remains when ruach and nefesh dissolve in the afterlife, reintegrating with neshamah from which they emanated. Within the outer aspects of neshamah, ruach and nefesh of neshamah, the karmic continuum of the soul is retained, all that has transpired with the soul, whether negative or positive, sin or righteousness. Thus, the karmic continuum of the soul from previous lives and the present life appears in the outer aspects of neshamah and is visible to those who are able to see it, tzaddikim and maggidim, or “saints and angels.”

“Sin is written on our forehead,” this corresponds with nefesh, for just as the flesh and forehead do not endure long after death, neither does nefesh, but the karmic continuum of the soul generated in this present life - sin and righteousness enacted, appears in nefesh and is visible to those who are able to perceive it, the tzaddikim and maggidim.

In the Gospel of St. Thomas that Master teaches us that “there is nothing that is hidden that will not be revealed,” and the plain meaning of this is that whether there is sin or righteousness it is known in heaven and will be revealed in the judgment, the life-review in the afterlife; but truly, already it is revealed and known to those who have eyes to see and ears to hear through the Spirit of God, certainly so!

Understand, to those able to see in the Spirit, and hear in the Spirit, and feel in the Spirit, the energetic dimension of beings, the subtle body and aura of beings, is visible and audible, and their vibration and energy can be felt. With many people the subtle body and aura appear dim, and there may be various distortions in the subtle body and aura, and there may be shades and shadows, and various unseemly things appearing in them; such appearances in the energetic dimension of individuals corresponds with sin, or with negative patterns of thought, speech and action, all of which affect the appearance of beings in the inner, energetic dimension. With others the subtle body and aura appears radiant and glorious, more or less, and the subtle body and aura appear in their proper formation, resembling something of the supernal image of the soul, and beautiful things appear in them; such appearances in the energetic dimension of beings corresponds with righteousness, or with positive patterns of thought, speech and action, all of which affect the appearance of beings in the inner, energetic dimension, just as sin or negativity does.

Thus, when masters of the tradition teach us that we become, or resemble, what we most love, there is a literal truth to this on a spiritual and energetic level, and likewise when they teach us that we go where our thoughts go this is also a literal truth, and we are wise to take their teachings to heart and consider deeply what we desire, and where our thoughts go, for they have a distinct effect upon our experience in this life, and their effects will extend into the afterlife and into future lives. Very literally in this life, with every thought, word and deed we are weaving the reality of our experience in the afterlife and future lives - we are forming the subtle body through which our soul will experience the afterlife states, and corresponding with the formation and appearance of the subtle body, its level of energy and vibration, will be the realms that our soul passes into in the afterlife, whether heavens or hells, or something in between, and likewise it will determine the play of fates and destiny in future lives.

Now as we know, in Messiah Yeshua there is forgiveness of sin, and likewise, as we know, anointed tzaddikim are empowered in the Holy Spirit with Mercy (Hesed) and Judgment (Gevurah), the power to release and retain sin or negative karma - the power to “erase sin etched upon bone,” or to “rearrange letters of the etchings” transforming sin into righteousness. Understand, when we receive the Holy Light and Spirit from above, and we are reborn from heaven, and we seek to integrate all aspects of our soul, our being and consciousness, with the Holy Light and Spirit, our ruach and nefesh are renewed, and there is a regeneration of our subtle body - the generation of a body of light radiant with the glory and power of the Spirit of God and heaven, and in effect there is a healing of our soul, our being, on an energetic level, so that truly, on a subtle energetic level we resemble the angels of heaven - angels of light. This is forgiveness, the effects of past sin, negative karma, being removed or healed, more or less, all dependent upon repentance, which is to say our generation of thought and emotion, and speech and action in harmony with the Holy Light and Spirit of God, the reintegration of our soul with God, the True Light.

The power of anointed tzaddikim to release or retain sin is in their ability to impart Light Transmission at various gradations, and their ability to communicate something of the Holy Spirit to us, or something of the power of their spiritual realization to us; hence, the facilitation of influxes of the Holy Light and Spirit from above, acting as midwives in the process of our rebirth from heaven, or from the Pleroma of Light. Through this, truly, we receive forgiveness, being healed and delivered from the effects of sin or negative karma.

Our capacity to receive forgiveness, or to receive something of the Holy Light and Spirit, depends, of course, on faith and devotion, and our willingness to cleave to Yeshua Messiah, tzaddik and community, and our willingness to engage in an active and dynamic surrender to Divine Grace, the Holy Spirit; hence, we must abide in the Sanctuary of Grace and co-labor with the Holy Spirit to workout our salvation, our enlightenment and liberation in the Messiah, and if we do the Holy Spirit will perfect and complete our labor, bringing it to fruition, all as the Holy One ordains and intends.

Understanding the energetic dimension to the forgiveness of sin, perhaps you may understand the great wisdom and power in spiritual practices such as giving and receiving meditation, union with partzuf meditation and the healing of the zelem, or “self-image”; hence, practices of a conscious generation of the body of light and an aura of greater glory, greater self-radiants in the Spirit of God. These are all practices of an active and conscious co-labor with the Spirit to workout our salvation, and engaging in them the Spirit will take them up, perfecting and completing our labor.

Naturally, though, joined with all of this there is a need for good works - enacting what’s good and true, active love and compassion, and there is a need to generate right thought and emotion, speech and action - righteousness; remember, the generation of the body of light, the body of the resurrection, is founded upon our mind and heart uplifted to God, thought and desire aligned with our heavenly soul, and with Christ and God, the True Light. It is through this that we truly embody the Holy Light and Spirit in full, just as our Elder Brother and Elder Sister, Yeshua and Mirya.

Receiving our forgiveness, may we forgive others, completing our reception of forgiveness! Amen.

(Given what we have shared, contemplate this prayer well, and understand!)

Shabbat Shalom!

Praise the Mother Spirit for this sharing!

This is very inspiring to read and contemplate and connects very much to the Holy Feast we just celebrated, the Feast of the Bride. In the ceremony we focused upon the Will of the Bride and the Will in speaking the vow she speaks, "To incarnate generation after generation in woman's form until all is accomplished." I am feeling in this teaching a deep connection between Forgiveness and the Vow the Bride speaks. It was said,

"The power of anointed tzaddikim to release or retain sin is in their ability to impart Light Transmission at various gradations, and their ability to communicate something of the Holy Spirit to us, or something of the power of their spiritual realization to us; hence, the facilitation of influxes of the Holy Light and Spirit from above, acting as midwives in the process of our rebirth from heaven, or from the Pleroma of Light. Through this, truly, we receive forgiveness, being healed and delivered from the effects of sin or negative karma."

Can we view the power to release and retain sin as a power that remembers through a continuity of consciousness? In this way, it feels that the Brides vow is a similar expression. To vow to take up incarnation generation after generation, embodying the remembrance of why one has come and for the purpose of Light Transmission, seems to have in it a resonance with the power to release and retain sin?

abiding in deep gratitude for your sharing here!

Kallah Messiah, we pray to join you in your vow for the sake of liberation of the People and the Land, Amen and Amen!

Shalom,
Elder Sarah

Shalom Tau Malachi!

Praise be to God for this understanding of the energetic dimension for the forgiveness of sin through the servants of the Holy One.

I seek a further understanding of the subtle body. When I receive or give kindness in word or action, I am united with an individual, even if for a moment. My emotions feels this interaction and my body holds the resulting uplifted energy. I understand this to be my vital soul or nefesh, correct?

So when you speak of the subtle body are you referring to the nefesh as well? Either the nefesh behamit (beastial) or nefesh elokit (spiritual)?

In addition, when I become aware of negative energy in me and sense a need for purification and repentance, am I perceiving the darkness in my subtle body?

Any clarification or correction is welcome.

May all become aware of the energy around them and seek out those with spiritual sight to guide,
Bevan.

Grace and peace to you in Hayyah Yeshua!

If we consider the Magdalene in this and her holy vow, as the Apostles of the Apostles, or Tzaddik of Anointed Tzaddikim, her vow expresses the sacred intention of all Tzaddikim - the Sacred Heart, which desires the enlightenment and liberation of all, and therefore compels ongoing incarnation, an ongoing spiritual labor for the harvest of souls. If we consider her intention with this vow as the Apostle of Apostles, her intention is for the Continuum of Light Transmission to remain in the world until the End-Of-Days, and likewise it is for the continued incarnation of souls of higher grades, Tzaddikim, in every generation, even in the darkest of times.

There is, indeed, the embodiment of a continuous presence of awareness in Tzaddikim, and likewise the embodiment of the Spirit of God and a higher consciousness - God Consciousness; and naturally, this corresponds with the realization and embodiment of neshamah, and with great Tzaddikim something of hayyah, and with perfect Tzaddikim something of yechidah. Understand, the outer aspects of neshamah hold the karmic continuum of the soul, but the inner aspects of neshamah are transcendent of the karmic matrix; to the inner aspects of the soul, neshamah, hayyah and yechidah, sin has never substantially self-existed, and is illusory and unreal, and neshamah, hayyah and yechidah have never been changed by sin or negative karma, but they remain in their primordial and supernal purity, inseparable from the Infinite Light.

The realization and embodiment of neshamah is the realization and embodiment of transcendence, and this is integral to the capacity to release and retain sin, and to the ability of Tzaddikim to descend into klippot in order to liberate souls from them and not be overcome by them; but the power of forgiveness, as we are speaking of it, is in the Holy Light and Spirit of God, and the play of Mercy and Judgment is in the experience of Light Transmission, and whether a given individual is able and willing to receive something of the Holy Light and Spirit or not. In this you may recall what Adonai Yeshua teaches of the judgment in the Gospel of St. John, that the Holy Light has come into the world and that there are those who desire to receive it and enter into it, but there are also those that love darkness and do not desire the Holy Light, and are unwilling to enter into it. In the teaching Yeshua gives he says that the Son of the Human One did not come into the world to judge the world, but that the judgment is this; if this is true of the Messiah, then this must be true of Anointed Tzaddikim, they do not, in fact, judge those whom they encounter, but the judgment is in souls themselves, and what individuals desire, or what they choose, and when there is a movement of the Spirit of God and Holy Light, there is the manifestation Mercy or Judgment accordingly.

When an individual opens to the Holy Light and Spirit, and receives the Light Transmission, there is a mending of the soul, a progressive healing of their energetic being, and this is the manifestation of forgiveness of sin, or the dispelling of negative karma, and with the Holy Light and Spirit something of their neshamah enters and they are reborn from above, from heaven; hence, there is a remembrance of their true source and foundation in heaven and God, and a transcendence of sin and death in the Messiah.

Now understand, receiving the Holy Light and Spirit we must co-labor with the Spirit for the full reintegration of our soul with the Holy Light, specifically the reintegration of ruach and nefesh, and as we reintegrate ruach and nefesh with the Holy Light, and the interior aspects of ruach and nefesh are realized and embodied, so ruach and nefesh of neshamah may be joined with the ruach and nefesh of our incarnation, and the influence of neshamah of neshamah may enter into play; hence, the aspects of our soul without sin, transcendent of the karmic matrix, may be drawn into this life. This corresponds with an evolution through higher mental states of consciousness into Supernal Consciousness, Christ or God Consciousness, and the corresponding Habad - wisdom, understanding and knowledge (remembrance).

Receiving the Holy Light from above, with the help of the Holy Spirit we must “bring it down,” and as we integrate our person and life with it there is a healing and regeneration of our subtle body - the generation of a body of light, and as we are taught in the Scriptures, quite literally, we are transformed from one degree of glory to another, the self-radiance of the subtle body increasing until it shines like the sun, and yet more until it becomes an even greater immeasurable brilliance, though composed of the most subtle and sublime translucent light - full supernal glory.

The subtle body is a vehicle or vessel of the soul, just as the material body is, and the subtle body is within and behind the material body, acting as the interface of the body and soul. As long as the material body endures, truly the soul is inseparable from it, and the same is true for the subtle body, the soul is the light and life of the body, material and subtle, and the soul appears and acts through the body, material or spiritual, in the corresponding dimensions, and the corresponding realms and worlds within them. Thus, nefesh is completely interwoven with the physical and subtle body, and our person and life, and within and behind is ruach, our spirit or intelligence, and within and behind nefesh and ruach is our neshamah, our divine nature, our supernal or heavenly soul. As perhaps you might intuit, receiving the Holy Light and Spirit there is a regeneration of nefesh - the generation of nefesh elokit, and there is a corresponding generation of the body of light. As we reintegrate our nefesh with the Holy Light, and we join nefesh with ruach, and realize and embody ruach, there is a generation of the body of light in greater glory; if then we join nefesh and ruach with neshamah the body of light shines with even greater glory, and the same is true if we are able to draw upon something of hayyah and yechidah, the purity and self-radiance of the body of light increases.

Understand, the soul has ten faculties, corresponding with the Divine Attributes (Sefirot), and likewise the soul has three garments, corresponding with thought, speech and actions; when we cultivate the Divine Attributes in the various aspects of our soul, and we express them through our mind, heart and body, or thought, speech and actions, our subtle body and aura become more and more radiant with glory - there is a higher level of energy and vibration in our consciousness, and our consciousness ascends and expands.

As we know, the Ten Commandments and Beatitudes correspond with the Divine Attributes, and therefore enacting the Commandments and the wisdom of the Beatitudes we cultivate the Divine Attributes, and we cleave to them and unify our soul with them, and through thought, speech and action we express them; as we do this we draw their light and spiritual power of the Divine Attributes into us, along with the light and power of the inner aspects of our soul, and we reintegrate our soul, and our person and life, with the Holy Light and Spirit of God, generating the image and likeness of Elohim, or Yahweh Elohim in the Messiah.

If and when we see, or feel, that our thoughts, speech or actions are not aligned with the wisdom of the Commandments and Beatitudes, so we will repent, which is to say that we will redirect our thoughts, words and deeds to enact what is good and true, and in so doing we reintegrate our soul with the Holy Light, and we embody the Light-presence (Messiah) and Light-power (Holy Spirit); the more we do so, quite naturally, the greater the self-radiance of the body of light, and the greater our resemblance to the angels of heaven and the Messiah in the Spirit.

As we know, the essence of all the Commandments and Beatitudes is in the single Holy Commandment given to us by Yeshua Messiah: “Love one another as I have loved you.” Enacting this Holy Commandment all of the Commandments and Beatitudes are fulfilled, all Divine Attributes are embodied and expressed.

In closing we may remember that the transformation of the subtle body into a body of light - the spiritual body of the resurrection, comes about through the awakening and uplifting of the serpent power and generation of the interior stars, the Holy Light and Spirit awakening and uplifting the serpent power in us; the interior stars are the manifestation of the Divine Attributes in us, and therefore the cultivation of the Divine Attributes corresponds with the generation of the interior stars, and with our co-labor with the Spirit to uplift and redeem the serpent power (desire-energy).

May we be awake this day in the Spirit of God and abide in the shadow of the Almighty (Shaddai)! Amen.

Shalom Aleichem!

Memory of Forgiveness

#5 Postby Elder Gideon » Wed May 04, 2016 5:37 pm

Shalom Tau Malachi and Elder Sarah:

When an individual opens to the Holy Light and Spirit, and receives the Light Transmission, there is a mending of the soul, a progressive healing of their energetic being, and this is the manifestation of forgiveness of sin, or the dispelling of negative karma, and with the Holy Light and Spirit something of their neshamah enters and they are reborn from above, from heaven; hence, there is a remembrance of their true source and foundation in heaven and God, and a transcendence of sin and death in the Messiah.

I'm hearing forgiveness so differently through this discussion. I praise Ma for its many directions and nuances.

In our most recent Solar High Rite, a deep mystery of forgiveness came through a climactic moment, raising a question that is simple in principle and very powerful to integrate.

You've taught above, Tau Malachi, that Within the outer aspects of neshamah, ruach and nefesh of neshamah, the karmic continuum of the soul is retained, all that has transpired with the soul, whether negative or positive, sin or righteousness. In this, I hear memory, which has the dual function of structure and resistance to the evolution of one's soul. What I'm hearing in this discourse, simply put, is that forgiveness is a spiritual experience transcendent of the memory held in one's nefesh and ruach. We can watch in the gospels how individuals experience forgiveness with the Perfect Master, according to the capacity of their soul. Each of these stories suggest degrees of intensity and intimacy. What for one individual soul is a gentle, healing word is for another an out-of-body experience.

However intense and intimate, forgiveness is another kind of memory beyond and behind karmic memory. Forgiveness feels altogether different now. As teshuvah-repentance was fashioned from before the beginning, so seems the experience of forgiveness before the need for forgiveness. I appreciate how it is, that we begin in ignorance and miss the mark so often that a karmic matrix is inevitable. Forgiveness, however, seems to surround this karmic matrix, preceding sin and ignorance. In other words, to fully experience forgiveness is to encounter this of neshamah that has never sinned. This was a moment in the Feast of the Holy Bride that fascinates me: In the height of prayers and worship came an influx of no memory of sin.

What more may we draw out of this tension between the memory of sin and the deeper memory surrounding sin that is forgiveness?

Gratefully,

Elder Gideon

Blessings to you in the Holy Name of Messiah Yeshua!

Indeed, if repentance-teshuvah was fashioned at the outset of creation then all in a great mystery forgiveness was also present from the very beginning, and, in effect, we were forgiven before our fall into ignorance and sin; certainly so! Consider the Gospel of St. John, “In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God and was God” (1:1). Aside from the more esoteric mysteries of the Word - Messiah, in the Works of Creation, the Messiah is the Savior - salvation, and this implies that in the beginning forgiveness was present, along with repentance, our ability to return to God, the True Light, and receive forgiveness.

Perhaps you may recall what we are taught in the Gospel of Truth, that the Holy One sees us in our perfection, and this implies that the Holy One sees us without sin or error; this is the vision of living spirits and souls in Atzilut, the eternal realm, beyond space-time and the karmic matrix, or the play of cause and effect in the ignorance, the illusion of separation. In the eternal realm all appears as it is in the Infinite One - primordial and supernal being, primordial and supernal enlightenment; hence, bornless being, “without father, without mother, without genealogy, having neither beginning of days nor end of life” (Hebrews 7:3).

Often in the Holy Kabbalah repentance-teshuvah is considered a cognomen of Understanding-Binah, and we are taught that in the fruition of repentance - reintegration with the Holy Light and Spirit of God (Ruach Elohim), souls are uplifted in ascent and are established in Binah, unified with the Interior Shekinah, the Supernal Mother (Imma). As we know, Neshamah corresponds with Binah, and while we may speak of an elevation of nefesh and ruach to Binah, such an elevation comes through the embodiment of something of neshamah, the divine or enlightened nature of our soul - the bornless nature; it is in this that souls are established in the World-To-Come, which is also associated with Binah.

Understand, sin and death have never substantially self-existed, but they come into being through the ignorance, the illusion of separation, and the self-grasping, desire and fear arising from ignorance, and therefore, believing the illusion of separation to be real, and believing sin and death to be real, the karmic continuum, sin and death, become the relative reality of the soul and the soul is bound up in it until the soul awakens and remembers its true being and nature, it’s inseparability from the Light and Spirit of the Infinite, its innate unity with the Eternal One.

In this, perhaps, you may understand that forgiveness, in essence, corresponds with the remembrance of the true origin of the soul, or the recognition and realization of the divine or enlightened nature of the soul, which is primordial and supernal - eternal. Thus, receiving our forgiveness, remembrance, we receive eternal life - the realization of bornless being, as spoken of in the gospels.

You may recall the promise of Adonai Yeshua in the Gospel of St. Thomas that whoever understands the secret teachings of the gospel “will not taste death,” but such understanding is not conceptual, but rather it is experiential, and it comes through the experience of Light Transmission, and through prayer and meditation, and gifted worship; hence through experience of higher, more expanded states of consciousness, the opening of consciousness to inner, metaphysical dimensions, and direct experience of the Messiah and Holy One - nearness and unification, Supernal or Messianic Consciousness. In order to pray and entertain deep meditation, and enter into direct spiritual and mystical experience, and be able to recognize and realize the divine or enlightened nature of the soul - neshamah, requires significant energy; hence, our need for initiation and spiritual empowerments, the transmission of something of the power of the spiritual realization of a living Tzaddik - Light Transmission.

We can, indeed, receive something of the Holy Light and Spirit from above independent of a living Tzaddik, but typically speaking to bring about full recognition and realization of our divine or enlightened nature requires the reception of teachings and initiation from a living Tzaddik and Community, and an ongoing experience of Light Transmission that occurs with a living Tzaddik and Community. We see this, for example, with Saul of Tarsus, who becomes St. Paul. Although he experiences a direct revelation of the Risen Messiah, and receives something of the Holy Light and Spirit from above, nevertheless he is sent to a disciple of a Tzaddik or an Apostle to receive a healing, an initiation, along with teachings, and eventually receives teachings and spiritual empowerments from the Tzaddik himself. Through this process his spiritual realization is brought to fruition and he comes into being as an Anointed Tzaddik, a Holy Apostle, bearing a great capacity for Light Transmission, teaching and initiating many other souls in the Way.

The story of of St. Paul is very interesting, for at first he was wounded, blinded, by the reception of the Holy Light and Spirit, and to him it was Severity or Judgment (Gevurah, Din), but then it became Mercy or Forgiveness when he was healed, initiated, and received his spiritual education from Tzaddik and Community.

Considering the story of St. Paul, who as Saul of Tarsus was a fierce persecutor of followers of the Way, we may understand that forgiveness is an energetic healing, but also that it corresponds with a radical transformation of consciousness, or an actual spiritual conversion - an experience of spiritual death and rebirth; and we may say that the person of earth, the child of the demiurge, dies, and a person of heaven, a child of the True Light, emerges - the old self passes away as a new self is born in the Messiah - the Anointing. Quite literally! Praise God!

These were a few more thoughts I was inclined to share today.

May the Holy Shekinah come to many this day with healing in her wings, and may many receive forgiveness and be free from sin! Amen.

Shalom Aleichem!
