The Spiritus Lumine

Friends of the Light, I am Broth­er Thomas your hum­ble ser­vant from the Sev­enth Ray in the God-Col­lec­tive. Dear friends, we hear your prayers! So many of you pray so fer­vent­ly! We want you to know, no human has ever prayed a sin­gle word that has not been heard by the appro­pri­ate guide in the God-Col­lec­tive. This is a bold claim to be sure!

But so many of your kind would say, “What about my prayer for my moth­er, world peace, the end of suf­fer­ing and the like” – what about those prayers? We tell you, we hear and answer them all accord­ing to the con­tracts you each have to ful­fill your des­tiny. Appear­ances can be so deceiv­ing – espe­cial­ly for those who take their spir­i­tu­al­i­ty so seri­ous­ly. After all, so many of you have been fight­ing the good fight as light­work­ers for so long that you have come to believe your will and obser­va­tions about what is need­ed is the right view. We under­stand this – for we endured these same tri­als as well when we lived as you.

Nev­er for­get that the world you inhab­it exists for a pur­pose – which it per­fect­ly car­ries out! The pur­pose of this place is not per­fec­tion as so many assume. Our job as mys­tics and lovers of the light is not to trans­form this world – but to trans­form our­selves by the pow­er of love and there­fore ascend this world once our lessons are done. Much like a mil­i­tary boot camp, your earth has been inten­tion­al­ly cre­at­ed to teach and test you. Believe it or not, you are attend­ing one of the best uni­ver­si­ties of its kind. Max­i­mize your learn­ing.

It is okay to feel weary. Hard work and study nat­u­ral­ly pro­duce this. Just know that grad­u­a­tion is near! In the mean­time, keep on work­ing. We believe (we actu­al­ly know) that if you look care­ful­ly at those drill instruc­tors, you will see that some of them will actu­al­ly wink at you as they pre­tend to work you to the bone. Nev­er for­get, those that try you the most are mem­bers of the God-Con­tin­u­um – just like you. Their work is to make you ready. You will thank us for it lat­er.

What is Spiritus Lumine?

Spir­i­tus Lumine is the lov­ing and orga­niz­ing intel­li­gence that takes the infi­nite and inef­fa­ble qual­i­ties of God, such as con­scious­ness, essence, intel­li­gence, and impar­tial being­ness – and dis­trib­utes them across the infi­nite planes of exis­tence. Short­er still, the Spir­i­tus Lumine is a Divine inter­net, pro­vid­ed by Source, to help us grow in our mys­ti­cal jour­ney.

Spir­i­tus Lumine is Latin for Light of the Spir­it. It refers to the great light of God that trans­mits the creator’s qual­i­ties into all things, space, dimen­sions, and time. This is the same light that is described in the Holy Bible when it says that God is light and in him, there is no dark­ness at all. It is also writ­ten that God is a Spir­it, and those that wor­ship him must do so in spir­it and truth. Obvi­ous­ly, there is more to God than spir­it and light, but these two clues are very help­ful for those desir­ing to trav­el the mys­ti­cal path. Since God describes his/her/itself as spir­it and light, we should too.  After all, we are cre­at­ed in God’s image.

Even though Spir­i­tus Lumine is the Light of the Spir­it, it should not be con­fused or equat­ed as being the same thing as God; rather, it refers to those essen­tial qual­i­ties that make Source what It is – and more specif­i­cal­ly, the dis­tri­b­u­tion of these qual­i­ties to all of cre­ation. Spir­i­tus Lumine exists because The Cre­ator has dis­trib­uted Its infi­nite self across a lim­it­less uni­verse.

Though we will speak about the Uni­fied Uni­verse in anoth­er les­son, for now, it is impor­tant to under­stand that the pre­cise rea­son for the exis­tence of Spir­i­tus Lumine in the first place is because God choos­es to exist in an infin­i­ty of forms and there­fore must have the means of dis­trib­ut­ing Its infi­nite qual­i­ties as well. Thus, we have an unend­ing num­ber of uni­vers­es, solar sys­tems, plan­ets, inhab­i­tants, humans, angels, archangels, avatars, and so on infini­tum – all over­seen by the Divine Light of Spir­i­tus Lumine.

This lov­ing light of God is the orga­niz­ing prin­ci­ple from which all order is cre­at­ed. It is that which holds all things and the uni­verse in its prop­er place. This Great Source Light is also the qual­i­ty that reminds all aspects of cre­ation that it is but a part of some­thing greater than itself.

A Few Simple Illustrations

To help you bet­ter under­stand the con­cept of Spir­i­tus Lumine, we use illus­tra­tions based on car­ri­er waves and light bea­cons.

Car­ri­er waves are used to trans­mit pro­grams over radio and tele­vi­sion.  With­out get­ting over­ly sci­en­tif­ic, radio trans­mit­ters have a base fre­quen­cy used for broad­cast­ing. When radio announc­ers say you are lis­ten­ing to 89.9 FM, they are refer­ring to their station’s car­ri­er fre­quen­cy.  Infor­ma­tion, such as news, weath­er, sports, and music are all mod­u­lat­ed (added to) with the car­ri­er fre­quen­cy.  When we tune our radio receivers to a par­tic­u­lar radio fre­quen­cy, we can enjoy all of the pro­grams the sta­tion pro­vides.  Spir­i­tus Lumine is a lot like that.  Think of Spir­i­tus Lumine as the car­ri­er wave that broad­casts God’s inef­fa­ble qual­i­ties to us as we learn to tune in to the var­i­ous fre­quen­cies.

Anoth­er way of under­stand­ing Spir­i­tus Lumine is to com­pare it to a giant light bea­con. This “God Light” bea­con shines through­out the infi­nite uni­verse and illu­mines it all.  Bea­cons show air­planes where they need to go and warn the ships at sea about dan­gers along the shore.  So too, we humans get the beacon’s ben­e­fit direct­ly through each of the Sev­en Rays – which we will dis­cuss in lat­er lessons.  But for now, imag­ine that we focus the beacon’s light (which we com­pare to Spir­i­tus Lumine) through a prism – result­ing in a rain­bow effect of col­ors.  Sim­i­lar­ly, the Sev­en Rays are likened to that rain­bow effect – each col­or pro­vid­ing us with unusu­al poten­tials for spir­i­tu­al growth.

It’s impor­tant to remem­ber that no metaphor or illus­tra­tion can entire­ly cap­ture the con­cept of Spir­i­tus Lumine, for in many ways it escapes def­i­n­i­tion. The longer we trav­el the path, the more we learn.  At some point, all of us will learn of its addi­tion­al ben­e­fits beyond the dimen­sions of time and space. For­tu­nate­ly, it is not nec­es­sary for us to ful­ly under­stand all there is to know to receive its ben­e­fits.  The hum­ble bean crop grows in the sun with­out under­stand­ing any of the physics relat­ed to radi­ant solar ener­gy and our com­put­ers will run, even if we don’t com­pre­hend Ohm’s Law, as long as they are plugged into the elec­tri­cal sock­et.  To quote a pop­u­lar new age fig­ure of the day, all that is nec­es­sary is to be “tuned in, tapped in, and turned on!”

The Illumination We Have Been Seeking

The ordi­nary per­son doesn’t think much about light oth­er than the illu­mi­na­tion it pro­vides. How­ev­er, the Great Light is more than a util­i­tar­i­an flash­light we shine on a dark for­est trail to keep from stub­bing our toes. As our soul con­nects with Spir­i­tus Lumine, we receive those qual­i­ties of God essence, intel­li­gence, and impar­tial being­ness in greater amounts. This is the illu­mi­na­tion we have been wait­ing for – that which awak­ens, trans­forms, and enlight­ens the human soul! This is the illu­mi­na­tion that eras­es kar­ma, trans­forms our exis­tence, and moves us from one plane of expe­ri­ence to the next.

Spiritus Lumine Belongs to no Religious Group

The Spir­i­tus Lumine is holy and sacred and should be described with rev­er­ence and respect. How­ev­er, even though we have quot­ed from the Holy Bible, Spir­i­tus Lumine is not the prop­er­ty of any reli­gious group. In truth, many of its aspects are described in near­ly all the major reli­gions. Addi­tion­al­ly, the Light of the Spir­it is not bound by any con­cepts, dog­mas or creeds cre­at­ed by humans or those giv­en to them by the beings of light on the oth­er side of the veil. This Light of the Spir­it is as much the inspi­ra­tion of athe­ists, philoso­phers, and human­ists as it is Chris­tians, Bud­dhists, Mus­lims, or oth­er reli­gious groups. Spir­i­tus Lumine exist­ed long before reli­gions were cre­at­ed and will exist long after they have been for­got­ten. Reli­gious or not, the Spir­i­tus Lumine impar­tial­ly gives its ben­e­fits to all with­out thought or judg­ment.

Inner and Outer Forms

To this point, we have seen that the Spir­i­tus Lumine is the Holy Light of God used to dis­trib­ute God’s inef­fa­ble qual­i­ties to all planes of exis­tence. As far as we humans are con­cerned, we can observe this in two ways – the inner and the out­er forms.

The Inner Forms

Some inner forms of the Spir­i­tus Lumine include dreams, visions, sud­den real­iza­tions, auto­mat­ic writ­ing, intu­itions, mes­sages received in med­i­ta­tion, and the like.  There will be many lessons on this web­site teach­ing you how to con­nect with the Light of the Spir­it using a spec­i­fied inner form.  In these lessons, a key point will cen­ter on teach­ing the stu­dent how to unite their Less­er light, also known as the Lux Ani­mae or Light of the Soul, with the Spir­i­tus Lumine.

The Outer Forms

The Great Soul Light also con­nects with us dai­ly through out­er forms such as these online lessons and dis­cus­sions, chance meet­ings with some­one who deliv­ers a spe­cial­ly need­ed mes­sage, books, DVDs, YouTube videos, syn­chro­nis­tic events, omens, and the like. The key here is to train the stu­dent to rec­og­nize the pres­ence of the Spir­i­tus Lumine and to devel­op per­son­al forms of com­mu­ni­ca­tion with it. Again, this web­site will pro­vide help­ful dis­cus­sions on iden­ti­fy­ing the out­er forms of Spir­i­tus Lumine.

Review and Concluding Remarks

Spir­i­tus Lumine is the method used by the Cre­ator to trans­mit Its inef­fa­ble qual­i­ties to all cre­ation. The Light of the Spir­it is sacred and holy. One’s work with Spir­i­tus Lumine should always be con­duct­ed with hum­ble­ness and respect. Care must be tak­en not to con­fuse Spir­i­tus Lumine with oth­er reli­gious teach­ings of which we may be famil­iar. Though there are sim­i­lar­i­ties, they are not the same. We can learn how to inten­tion­al­ly con­tact this Light of the Spir­it as we learn to mas­ter the inner and out­er forms. As we do this, we open our­selves to receiv­ing the wis­dom we need for per­son­al trans­for­ma­tion and spir­i­tu­al pow­er.

May I share a con­clud­ing remark before we end this les­son? All beings, whether they know it or not are in con­tact with the Spir­i­tus Lumine. The dif­fer­ence pri­mar­i­ly is whether they are receiv­ing its sus­tain­ing pow­er or access­ing its trans­for­ma­tive pow­er. The God Light is hid­den in plain sight and is the attract­ing force that caus­es peo­ple to ques­tion their lives and see if there is some­thing more to it than what they have. Not all are ready to begin this search. The Spir­i­tus Lumine is infi­nite­ly patient and nev­er coerces a per­son who is not pre­pared to start this work.  Nei­ther should we. Those who fol­low this mys­tic path are no bet­ter than those who do not. At best we are bet­ter informed and more method­i­cal about our spir­i­tu­al path than those about us. There is noth­ing we can do to make God love us more or less. As we fol­low this path, we must be will­ing to go where the Light of the Spir­it leads and allow oth­ers this same free­dom.
