I have often wondered about the nature of prophecy. What is the impulse that comes upon a man or a woman to lead a people to a whole new plane? Where does that voice they hear come from, what gives them the courage to speak that truth, and what is the price they must all pay?
Throughout history men and women have heard that voice. It may have come from God, or Angel, or, their own past. The path chosen is never easy, yet they follow it strongly, and in their struggle, they uplift others. Moses, Miriam, Mary (the mother and wife) Cassandra, Dekanawida, Muhammad, and many more. In the end, they all opened the path that led to God.
They fasted, and prayed, and retreated to solitary places to free their spirits from their physical ego and better see the visions that would guide them. And they would see the future, and base their actions accordingly. And people thought the words they spoke were magical, and came from God.
We all have a Psychic ability that allows us to briefly see things as they are; sometimes to even glimpse the future. But a very few have that path to prophecy, and it is a rare few indeed. I referred to some of them in previous post "The Children of Atlan" and they always lead interesting lives, over and over again, and many of them came back into the same path, the same struggle, again and again. So, for example, Moses who once was Septros then became Muhammad, and repeated several of his lessons again.
And I look at the human price they all paid, as they tried to help and better humanity. And while I respect the religious aspect of what they did, and the need for that then, and appreciate their connection with the Divine, I know that whatever impulse they had was filtered through their human consciousness, and therefore, never perfect, only imperfect. Their life and their suffering was only too human...
I was aware of spirits around me from the day I was born. My parents from another life, Andron and Aeflan, there to watch over me. A strange child who sat in the dark and saw the spirits of the living and the dead in full reality. That I met the spirits of those I would meet in the flesh later, I knew. And we would, when we finally met, say we had known each other before..
There was a period in my life. My brother had died young, and I buried my grief, and I was searching for who I was . Then I learned to communicate more fully with Spirit, at the age of 14, and the first spirit I met then was Cheiro's.
Cheiro, Count Louis Hamon, was a famous British palmist and occultist, friend of the rich and famous, lover of many women, who read the future of many of the crowned heads of Europe. He belonged to many secret societies, may have been a spy, had studied in India and learned the occult secrets of the Jewish people. Basing his prophecies on calculations of the Great Pyramid, he prophesied in his Book of World Prediction the World Wars and that the Jewish People would come into great power. He eventually retired to America and when he died in 1936, he was a Hollywood screenwriter!
He, in spirit, encouraged me to study palmistry, astrology and numbers. Other spirits (who I would meet later in the flesh) told me I would be a writer. But it was through him that I started to grow, first in seeing energy through my reading the palms, then seeing the future, then healing with my hands. He started me on the path that led to my writing Man From Atlan, from which more things flowed, and now, as I write The Children of Atlan, I see the Great Circle that bring us all together again. I see, as this Age comes to an end, how the Children of Atlan are being born again.
Cheiro, you see, was once Septros, the husband of Aeflan and my stepfather. He was David and Moses and the last prophet, Muhammad. He walks again on Earth, but in quiet obscurity.
Each religion, claiming inspiration from special people who spoke with God. Yet the Way of Atlan teaches us that we all can speak with God, and it is only when we honor and respect the people who came at a special time for all the right reasons, but were still, all too human, and respect the religions for all the good they did then but reject that those are final words and final prophets, only then can we break free from the bonds of the past, and karma.
The Way of Atlan has always been, and always will be. We have always been in God, and God in us. We have forgotten that connection, but, Spirit is there to remind us, again and again.
