The Human Being as a Magnet
It was in the sun that I first saw the magnetic forces of a human being. And it was in the sun that the vision continually reappeared. It appeared to me again today out under the pine tree in the backyard as I was doing my movements on the grass, with the sun falling on me between the branches. The vision has been developing in bits and pieces over the last few months, but today the picture was sharper and clearer than it has ever been before - like an image carved in crystal and in my calmness I entered into the vision as easily as one would enter a happy thought and I was overwhelmed by the ease and simplicity by which the knowledge was presented to me.
I saw the transparent outline of a human being, it was neither man nor woman to my inner eye but merely a representation of a perfect human being. For ease of description however I shall refer to it as a man. The color was of muted grey. Superimposed over and larger than the figure were the clean blocked lines of a bar magnet, also grey although the top was lighter than the bottom, with a positive charge at the upper end, a negative charge at the other and divided by a line at the chest area.
Then I saw as clear as day the energies of the man being pulled upward toward the sky in a positive charge, reaching to attain the unreachable. This took the form of little sparklets of light, like comets surging upward. And the man allowed himself to go with the magnetism from above. High dreams and visions of an Almighty captured his attention and the unwillingness to compromise those high hopes kept the charge active and alive. He was polarized and he rode the powerful force into flights of fantasy, beyond the reach of earth. The upper part of his body, from the chest to the top of his head, became slowly transformed from grey to golden light as the particles rushed towards the top of his head.
And then I saw movement begin below the chest. As if to counter the action above, little light particles began charging toward the earth, crying out for balance. The nature of the negative force was no different than the other except for direction, for it was being pulled downward towards the soil of the mother planet as if to anchor the imminent flight. Now practicality captured the man's attention. He was reminded of his earth-bound condition and the necessity to keep his feet upon the ground.
The counteraction of the negative charge served to throw water on the firey hopes indulged in by the abstract side of his nature and his enthusiastic ardor was momentarily cooled. Now the lower part of the man's body was also filled with light and he become as a magnet, each end charged with equal force, each moving in opposite directions away from the other and away from the center line. As the opposing forces struggled for dominance I entered into the man and felt the confusion of being divided into two parts. I asked myself, "Now which direction do I go in?"
But now my attention was brought to rest in the center of the chest near the heart area. And I was shown that, just as at the center of the bar magnet there is a neutral zone where the particles lay entwined at rest, so it is in a human being. And as I became conscious of this central area of calm, I became aware that it was a very narrow band of stillness, almost imperceptible to the eye - a sort of no-man's land where all fighting ceased to be. But as I remained focused on this band of peace, other particles of light above and below ceased to struggle and began drifting backward toward the center, lessening the sense of friction. Now the band of calmness began to expand and broaden as positive and negative charges entered the neutral zone and found each other. Here in the center of the man a great and wonderful peace began to spread. No storms raged, no lightening struck, no struggle existed, no desire remained unfulfilled. Instead there came into being a sense of marvelous wholeness, a wonderful peace and a sense of infinite power.
It was then that I was shown the birth of Love, for as the man rested from his struggle and resided in this neutral zone, his sense of self began to grow and, almost miraculously, the warm fires of love ignited without his even trying. The sense of love, peace, power and purity stretched upward and downward so that I looked to the head and to the feet and saw that the calmness had spread even to those outer limits.
I was shown then the flowering of the soul who, after asserting dominance over his struggle of desire and resistance, no longer sought in the outer world that which was already present. I saw the heights and the depths to which the man had access. I saw that the unknown and the unreachable does not exist. Only the known exists. It has always been known but it has always been rejected as the unwanted side of one's own self at any given time. But now as the unwanted was recognized and embraced so did the window to the infinite open, and a super-human quality permeated the whole man.
In the stillness of meditation after the current had stopped flowing, my body peaceful, I knelt on the mat and let the sun flood the interior of my mind. I pondered. One further question stirred and I wondered, "Could it be this simple?" With that the marvelous force awakened once more. Invisible hands seemed to cover my arms and lift them gently, slowly, to place my hands on my chest. Words rang out loudly and clearly through my mind: "THIS is the center of balance."
From my journals of many years ago, there is no date on it but probably sometime in the 1980's.
