"And I saw another angel ascending from the East having the Seal of the Living God and he cried with a loud Voice to the four angels to whom it had been given to hurt the Earth and the Sea, saying, Hurt not the Earth neither the Sea, nor the Trees, before we have Sealed the servants of our God in their Foreheads. And I heard the number of those which were Sealed: One Hundred Forty Four Thousand from the Twelve Tribes of Israel." - Revelation 7:2-4

It was Plato who said, "The world, when viewed from above, resembles a ball sewn from twelve pieces of skin." How did Plato know that the earth is round? Well, first off, he was a Pythagorian and all the followers of Pythagorius understood that the world was round. But there are deeper truths here than saying that one day Plato looked at the back of a turtle and determined that the world must be made up of twelve pentagonal pieces.

Thanks to the internet, we are now able to research a subject from the viewpoint of many researchers. When I was at Northwestern University in Evanston, Illinois several years ago, I used every library available to me through their library exchange program. What I discovered was the work being pioneered by various researchers on the subject of ‘ley lines’. It

was becoming apparent that our ancient forefathers understood the magnetic power grid that covers the surface of our earth quite well and even built their greatest architectural structures on or near them. This is as true in India as it is in Egypt, England and the Yucatan. The most famous site sits at the center of one of these power nodes: the great pyramid complex at Giza. There is much that we still do not understand about this power grid but we are learning.

We do know that there is a powerful energy vortex in the Bermuda Triangle, where so many planes and ships have disappeared, even on cloudless day. There are other powerful nodes near Mount Shasta, in California, Stonehenge in the British Isles, the Great Pyramid in Egypt and Machu Piccha in Peru.


Throughout the world, mystics have told us about the universal life force which they have used to move objects and control the behavior of animals. But since Science can’t see it or smell it or test it, we are told it doesn’t exist. Tell that to the people in India, who call it Prana or the people in China, who call it Qi, or the ancient people of Egypt, who

called it Ankh, or the ancient Greeks, who called it Pneuma or the Polynesians, who call it Mana; or the people of Hawaii, who call it Tane, or the Australian Aborigines, who call it Arunquiltha, or the Iroquois Indians, who call it Orenda, or the Japanese people, who call it Ki.

This energy can be used to heal people at a great distance, kill bacteria, yeast or fungi and it can be used with great results in martial arts or for spiritual development.


Mystics from around the world tell us that Man is made up of seven inter-penetrating bodies, called Kosas. Each Kosas, or ‘sheath’ is made from a different energy and material. While our physical body is visible to normal eye sight, the other Kosas are not visible to normal eye sight. But they are visible to those who have developed the ability to do

so. Many can see the Prana-maya-kosa or the etheric body. Just as the Earth has a Van Allen Radiation Belt around it, to protect us from the violent solar flares (or sun spots) issuing from our own Sun, so too does the human body. In fact, every living thing has an electro-magnetic field about it.

Extending out from the human body is a field of energy which we call the Aura but which is known as the Prana-maya-kosa, in the East.. It extends out from the body on all sides from one to two feet. It pulsates and changes colors and strength according to a persons physical and mental health. I have been able to see auras slightly but I have friends who can see them very well.

Another Kosa would be our ‘thought body’ or the Mano-maya-kosa, which is necessary for rational or intellectual thinking. The next Kosa or ‘sheath’ is called Vijnana-maya-kosa, which extends out far beyond our active thoughts and represents potential consciousness. Some might even

call it our Soul. Finally, there is the most subtle of ‘sheath’ called the Ananda-maya-kosa, which penetrates all the others. It represents the highest, Universal Consciousness and is sometimes called the ‘Body of Bliss’. Please understand that these are not separate sheaths that surround each other; they interpenetrate each other, in the same space and time.


The human body also has power vortexes connected with it, as the ancient art of acupuncture is revealing. This art has been practiced by the Chinese people for centuries by using needles to release dammed up energy flows. But I would caution anyone wishing to undergo treatments to only consult veteran practitioners of acupuncture.

While the Aura exists outside the body, the ‘Chakras’, for the most part exist along the spinal column. These are energy vortexes very much like the nodes along Earth’s energy grid known as ‘ley lines’. The names of the best known chakras are, according to their Sanskrit names: Maladhara at the end of the spine (the sacral plexus), Svadhishtana,

which is very near the Muladhara associated with ‘sang-na’ (secret place) and with reproduction; Manipura, the ‘naval-lotus’, is associated with solar plexus and stands for transformation, both physically and spiritually; Anahata, the heart area; Vishudda,(pure) the throat center; Ajana (command) area between the eyebrows and the Sahasara-Padma (crown).

Connecting the Kosas and the Chakras are vessels called Nadis, which conduct energy through the subtle bodies. The three major Nadis are the Susumna, a central channel which runs like a hollow channel down the center of the spinal column; and the Ida and Pingala. These last two wrap around the Susumna nadi in a spiral fashion, starting with the left and the right nostrils respectively. They establish a direct connection among all the Chakras.

When Solomon spoke of the "silver cord" being loosed and the "golden bowl"1 being broken, he was referring to the Susumna with the Ida & Pingala nadis that intertwines around it and the golden bowl refers to the Aura around the body, at the time of death.

Forgive me here if I quote from one of my own books. "The vibrations of music and color are interchangeable but if color is converted into music, the harmonics are 40 octaves higher than the human ear can hear. The normal range for the human ear is between 19,000 and 20,000 Hz. Scientists have discovered that the Earth itself gives off a vibration frequency which registers around 7.8 cycles per second, so any sounds pulsed between 0.1 and 8 Hz are perceived by our bodies as being in rhythm with nature.

"The Dutch scientist, Christian Huygens in 1665 discovered that if he struck a tuning fork and brought it near another tuning fork with a similar frequency, the second one would be set in motion matching the first one. In a similar fashion the human body is a great resonator which can be ‘entrained’ just as the tuning fork. Not long ago, an American

businessman named Robert Monroe discovered that the human brain can be ‘entrained’ with pulses ranging from 5 Hz to 20 Hz, because that is the general frequency of our brains. He believes that certain frequencies help him to leave his body and travel out of body. Other scientists have also testified to the powerful effects of signals using frequencies of 7.8 cycles per second, which matches the Alpha wave rhythm of the human brain."2

If I were to tell my readers that Mind is not located in the brain but outside the body, I would not be surprised to hear from someone that I am cracking up. Well, the simple fact of the matter is, that there is much to support the notion that Mind operates through the brain and also

outside the body. The brain is like a computer; it is only as good as the information we put in it. Scientists are also puzzled by another mystery: according to several experiments, using Gravity, it now appears that Gravity pushes down instead of pulling down! Here, I’d better pass on.


Beloved, permit me to throw something out for the sake of conversation. At the present, we have crossed out of the Age of Pisces and entered into the Age of Aquarius. (Each Age lasts 2,160 years). We are traveling through the Manifestation of Sagittarius. (A manifestation

lasts 6,840 years or three Ages). Our Sun and Solar System revolve around a much larger Sun, called the Central Sun. Our entire Solar System, has just entered into an energy field, which is causing our Sun to throw off enormous solar flares, some of which, reach almost to the

Earth. So the earth is about to undergo a time of great trial and testing, brought on from two sources. One cause is the enormous ecological damage which has been wrecked upon Mother Earth by man himself and the other is being brought on from forces outside our Solar System.


Scientist Bruce Cathie of Australia tells us in his writings Harmonic 66 and Harmonic 695 that since mankind has exploded atomic bombs near strategic magnetic nodes along the ley lines, Earth’s natural energy frequencies have become distorted. He believes that this may be the

reason for the strange anomalies occurring in the Bermuda Triangle and the Great Lakes, where ships and planes just disappear into thin air. There have been numerous instances of such anomalies and our scientists are at a loss to explain what is happening to them.


As 1979 was drawing to a close, the United States Commerce Department felt compelled to issue a statement, which confirmed that we are losing time. Just in the past few years, the daily rotation of our planet has slowed down considerably and continues to do so. It seems that over the past two thousand years, the Earth’s magnetic field has fallen to just under two-thirds its former strength.

Since Earth’s magnetic poles are not in the same location as the true geographic poles, they tend to move around. From the years 1850 till 1950, they moved about two miles a year! But since the Earth has began to cool down, the magnetic poles have shifted 200 miles. This may be a result of the enormous increase in sunspots since 1957. At any rate, we are witnessing a growing difference between time as registered by Atomic clocks and Solar clocks.

During the years 1912- 1918, the geographic North Pole was centered in what we call the center of Earth’s Axis but from 1962-1969, this axis has been moving further and further from what was considered the true center. If one could view the Earth from above, he would see that the wobble at the North Pole is growing and that the Earth may be ready to do a flip-flop, with the heavy ice sheets at the North and South Poles ending up circling the Equator.

One of the side effects of this slowing down, is that more intense ultraviolet rays are passing through Earth’s magnetic filter. For some this may mean a greater likelihood of skin cancer. For certain species, should it continue, it would mean extinction and devolution. For others it will mean spiritual evolution, because of the higher energy pouring into our Solar System from an unknown source.

Not only are we in the Manifestation of Sagittarius, but at the moment the planet Pluto, which symbolizes Death and Rebirth, is also traveling through the Constellation of Sagittarius. It entered from Scorpio in 1996 and will exit Sagittarius twelve years later. Pluto and Mars will conjunct during September 1999 at 7 degrees Sagittarius. So this decade promises to be one of transformation.


If we were to ask any number of modern Christians if they believe there will be an Anti-Christ and that he will compel all men to receive his Mark (666) in their forehead, I am satisfied that most would say ‘Yes’. But ask them about the Mark that is placed on the foreheads of the

144,000 Elect ones and they will, more likely than not begin to spiritualize its meaning. Why is this? Why do they not believe in some literal interpretation? If one ‘mark in the forehead’ is literal, why isn’t the other?

Now, I will grant you that over the years, I have tried to bring out the spiritual significance of the number 144,000, pointing out, that it reduces down to the number 9, by using Pythagorean math (1+4+4=9), just as the 153 fishes in John’s Gospel reduces down to 9.

This mystical number starts with the Twelve Apostles, who were sent to the "Twelve Tribes of Israel scattered abroad."3 Each Apostle drew to himself twelve more followers until their labors were multiplied a thousand fold. Granted, it does state in the Revelation, that there were 12,000

from each tribe Sealed but we are not talking about literal ‘Jews’, for "he is not a Jew, who is one outwardly, but who is one inwardly."4 Paul says in another place, "They are not all Israelites, even though they be descended from Israel" . . . "That is, those who are fleshly descendants,

are not the Children of God but the children of the Promise are counted as the Seed."5 So when he says, "So all Israel shall be saved"6 he does not mean that all the Jews living in the land of Israel at some specific time, are going to be converted to Christianity. What he means, is that those who are spiritual Israelites in their hearts will be saved in this manner (through faith in Christ Jesus.)

Secondly, we have to take into account the extent of the Apostles’ travel. There are even records showing that someone came to central and south America, wearing white robes and built baptisteries and nunneries in the Yucatan Each country has a different name for these teachers.

WHO ARE THE 144,000 ?

There is a lot more said about these 144,000 servants of God, than might be supposed. In another place Jesus said, when describing the lump of clay that Adam was created from, ". . . Because of his [Lucifer’s] tremendous understanding, he knew that one day, God would call forth from that mass of clay, one-hundred-forty-four thousand

men, who would be marked with the Mark of Prophecy."7 And until their complete number was made up, the Consummation of the Universe could not occurred. "The dissolution of the Universe will come after the number of Perfect Souls is completed and the Mystery for which the

Universe arose has been completed. Then I will spend a thousand, years according the years of Light, reigning over all the Emanations of the Light and over the complete number of Perfect Souls, who have received all the Mysteries."8

Many imagine that the 144,000 are Jews, who will be converted sometime in the immediate future and that they will preach to the entire world. In the first place, Christ said they were the "first fruits of those redeemed from among men", in other words from all nations. This is confirmed by John himself, who heard their number in 7:4 but actually saw them in 7:9 as a "great multitude, which no man could count, from every nation, kindred,, peoples and languages . . ."

The Book of Revelation was Christ’s revelation of his war upon the followers of the Beast and those who refused to believe God. He explicitly said that the events recorded in it were to begin happening immediately after it was written down.9 It was not intended to be a

mysterious writing, whose meaning and fulfillment would have to wait 2,000 years to be fulfilled. Its events began happening immediately. But why is it that we see certain events recurring again and again?

Not all the 144,000 lived on the earth at the same time. We see Christ promising the ‘Overcomers’ in each of the seven Church Ages different rewards. All of there rewards accrued to the 144,000 and their followers. Let’s take a look at the promised rewards of the ‘Overcomer’.


The Angel of the Church at Ephesus was to tell his people that the ‘overcomer’ will eat from the Tree of Life."- (2:7) On page 26 of this study, I reproduced the glyph of the Tree of Life. Take a look at it.

The Angel of the Church at Smyrna was to tell the ‘overcomers’ of his Age, that they would receive a "Crown of Life"- (2:10) whereas the people of Philadelphia were warned "let no man take your Crown."- (3:10)

And the Overcomer "will not be hurt by the Second Death." - (2:11)

The Angel of the Church at Pergamos was to promise "the Overcomers will eat hidden Manna." - (2:17)and will be given "a white stone, with a new name engraved in it." - (2:17)

The Angel of the Church at Thyatira was to tell the Overcomers there that they "will have Authority over the nations." - (2: 26) and be given the "Morning Star". - (2:28)

The Angel of the Church at Sardis was to promise the Overcomer "shall walk with me in White" - 3:4

The Angel of the Church at Philadelphia was to tell the Overcomers there that they would be kept safe through the "Hour of Temptation that is to come upon all the world to test them." - 3:10 and they would be made "a Pillar in the Temple of God." -Furthermore, he would have the Name of my God and the name of New Jerusalem and the name of Christ "written on his forehead." ‘ 3:12

The Angel of the Church of Laodicea was to tell the Overcomers there that if they would "open the Door, I will come in and dine with him and he with me" and he will "sit with me on my Throne." - 3:20, 21

Dear friends, in this issue, we have seen that Man corresponds to that which is above. That the Kingdom is both inside us and outside us. The 144,000 standing on the Mountain are represented by a pyramid with its apex pointed skyward. Descending from Heaven is another pyramid with its apex pointed downward. These two pyramids must overlap in time and in the same location to create a six-pointed Star of David. It is a Divine Wedding.

It can honestly be said for those who have eyes to see with that We have already "come to Mount Zion, and the City of the Living God, - to the heavenly Jerusalem and an innumerable company of Angels and to the General Assembly, even the Church of the First Born, whose names are

written in Heaven and to God the Judge of all and the spirits of just men who have been made Perfect and to Jesus Christ . . . Wherefore, see that we are surrounded with so great a cloud of Witnesses . . .let us run with Endurance, the race set before us." Remember that we exist in Seven Realms simultaneously. God Bless. I remain,
