The world’s sacred traditions speak of multiple levels of existence above our three-dimensional world, and to beings within each of these levels that populate them. This is a common feature of many systems, including Hinduism, Neo-Platonism, Tibetan Buddhism, and Christianity. These beings from higher levels are capable of intervening in the life of humans and of assisting the evolution of Planet Earth. For example, in the Western religion (Judaism, Christianity and Islam) scriptures and mystics speak of Angels and Archangels, with many recorded instances of their presence and influence among us.

The appearance and work of these higher entities has changed throughout history, adapting itself to the mentality and conditions of humans in a given time period. Many are not aware that these contacts are continuing and occur now, in our times.

Take for example the phenomenon of Crop Circles – sacred geometric patterns which appear spontaneously and within a matter of seconds and imprint themselves in fields of wheat, corn and other crops, and even in snow and ice. These have been documented in many countries for over thirty years and all attempts to debunk them or explain them by normal means have been confounded. Initial attempts by critics to dismiss them, having failed, have been replaced by silence and neglect about them. It is amazing that this phenomenon is virtually ignored by the media.

The epicenter of this phenomenon is in Wilshire, England, the location of many prehistoric sacred sites such as Stonehenge. Scientific research on crop circles has demonstrated that they emit unusual energies (which have been known to destroy and interfere with electronic devices), produce alterations in plants that are generated from seeds harvested from crop circles, alter the chemistry of the underlying soil, and that the patterns in which the plants are bent are fused occurs in such a way that the plants survive and keep growing. Often a shadow of a crop circle will appear the following year in the new crop planted at the location. And remarkably, when crop circles are viewed from above their shape is adapted to the curves in the landscape in such a way that they appear perfectly symmetric to the viewer from above.

Each summer dozens of Crop Circles are manifested in the countryside of Great Britain, often within view of ancient sacred sites. In some cases, forgotten sacred sites have been re-discovered based on information provided within a crop circle, such as an arrow or line pointing in a specific direction. Crop circles have also ‘appeared’ in many other countries, including Belgium, Brazil, Bulgaria, Canada, Czechoslovakia, France, Italy, the Netherlands, Russia, and Switzerland, In short, crop circles appear to be intelligent phenomenon that contain important information for humanity. Some of them are constructed in binary codes or fractal geometrical patterns that can be decoded to reveal musical structures or which provide specific information. Often they take the form of planetary arrangements that are occurring in the heavens at the time of a crop circles appearance, and also may depict the arrangement of future planetary events and alignments.

Many crop circles appear in forms that are remarkably similar to diagrams made by esoteric philosophers, such as the Vesica Pices, for example those developed by Anthony Damiani and published in his book Astronoesis. This suggests that the diagrams developed by these philosophers are not merely a human construction or conceptual scheme but represent in fact a channeling of sacred patterns that are part of the divine intelligence that is creating the universe – patterns that today appear in the form of crop circles.

Those working with crop circles – photographing them, studying them, and reporting them to a humanity that seems uninterested in acknowledging them – believe that crop circles manifest a greater intelligence that interacts with those who pay attention to them. For example, there are numerous accounts of crop circles that appear in forms, patterns, or arrangements that seem to be in response to the questions, research, and interests of the crop circle community.

What does this all mean? Each of us must decide for ourselves. Is the existence of divine beings that have been referred to as “deities,” “angels,” “gods” and “goddesses” merely a cultural belief or an outdated mental concept or do they refer to actual realities? If they exist, what is the correct way of relating to them and what is our responsibility to them? If they are indeed trying to help and communicate with us, how should we respond? Or, is it more reasonable to believe, as has been suggested by critics, that crop circles are produced by large groups of people who sneak into fields at night to shape corn, wheat, and other crops – and even snow and ice – into geometrical patterns?

Our planet is in a critical moment of its evolution. Humanity has interfered with planet earth to a degree that is unprecedented and which endangers the well-being of the planet and all those who live on it. To solve these problems we may need help, help which may be readily available and which is being offered in ways that we may not yet recognize. Through prayer, attunement, reflection and understanding sacred phenomenon, including as crop circles (or by meditating on their pictures) it may be possible to invoke the assistance of higher beings to help us reverse the destructive course that humanity has embarked upon.

A Deeper Look at Bystander Behavior

by Magda Beatriz Berkowitz, M.A. and Alan Berkowitz, Ph.D.

You see a situation that bothers you and you wonder if you should do something. You are now having the experience of being a “bystander.” Where does this desire to act come from? To answer this question we must ask yet another question – a question that is often overlooked because we think that we know the answer. “Who am I?” In other words, to know where our deepest impulses come from – our desire to help others, to do the “right thing”, to not be a bystander, and in many cases to go against what we have been taught from parents, family and culture – we must look deep within ourselves to seek their origin.

Spiritual Service and the Inner Meaning of “Temple”

November 1, 2007 – Istanbul, Turkey

 

Dear Brothers and Sisters:

It is a great honor to stand before you as fellow “Spiritual Searchers” here in this land that has been home to so many sacred traditions, temples, and lovers of wisdom – teachers and teachings who have inspired my search and shaped my thinking.  Today I want to talk with you about the inner meaning of “Temple” and what it means to be a world-server.  To serve the divine plan we must become temples where the divine lives.  By temple, I mean any place where the sacred dwells.  I will also introduce you to the work of my own spiritual community – Wisdom’s Goldenrod Center for Philosophic Studies, in the United States.  I offer you my sincere thanks for inviting me to be here with you now.

The Multi-Dimensionality of the Human Being

by Beatriz Berkowitz

“Healing is always linked to the expansion of consciousness” - Jose Trigueirinho Neto

The human being is a very complex being composed of many levels and dimensions.  We could even say that it is a mysterious being, as is the macrocosm that surrounds it.  The human being as a microcosm reflects in itself the macrocosm.  They are interconnected and in relationship to each other.   From this interaction life is created and the human being has the opportunity to discover itself as a cosmic being, resolving in this way the enigma of human existence.
