My energy has tanked the last few days – Mars & Pluto activation, etc.. soOo I finally took a night to mummy up in soft fuzzy blankets, lay around with my kitties and read ~ utter bliss !
Finally finished The Key (click). It was a fabulous read with unique spiritual and environmental perspectives. I marked a couple of things to share. (You might want to read my previous entry to get up to speed on the book. The direct link to buy it is at the top of that post.)
This first bit refers to the precession and the ages of man.
Whitley: So how are we to approach God ? What is the nature of this infinite being that resides in every grain of sand ?
The Master of the Key: When you say God, you think of somebody outside of yourself. You think as the age of worship thinks. Over the last age, that of Pisces, the elemental body was changed by this process of worship. It is not the same as it was two thousand years ago. Now the receptacle is larger. Now each of you can contain all of the universe. That was not true then. Now this is a species of sacred beings. But you are babies, still ignorant of your powers. The last age was the age of the external God.
This is the age of God within.
Whitley: What is real religion ?
The Master of the Key: From outside of time, man’s effort to know God appears as a single form, a work of art that has evolved across history. You have created it in three phases. The first is negative, the age of sacrifice. This is why the Old Testament God is so terrible. The moment that God tells Abraham not to kill Isaac is a record of one of the most sacred of all human moments, for it sets the stage for the next age.
The second age is positive, the age of worship. This is why the God of the New Testament is full of compassion.
Your present age is when man and God become one. You find in yourself Christ, Buddha, Allah, Krishna. In this age, the elemental body has evolved to the point that it has the potential to reflect divine ecstasy.
Interesting, yes ?
Neptune into Pisces is up next…
Whitley: What is heaven ?
The Master of the Key: Music.
Whitley: Are you being facetious ?
The Master of the Key: Heaven is a state of being that intensifies the spin of every electron in the body. It is a music that begins in the root of being.
Now check this bit which is so Uranus square Pluto~
Whitley: Why does a process of extinction cause intelligence ?
The Master of the Key: Evolution is pressure. Pressure causes struggle. Creatures struggling not to be destroyed evolve adaptations.
earlier in the text:
The Master of the Key: The purpose of meditation is two – fold. It is to organize the energetic body so that it will not lose its integrity after it can no longer depend upon the structure of the elemental body for its form.
Cosmic Neptunian reading, yes ? It is a book filled with thought – provoking conversation, definitely worth a look.
Be aware The Master of the Key speaks of us ‘choking on our own garbage’ and the ‘evil of secrets’ perpetuated by those who are the control behind government officials. If you are looking for sunshine and rainbows, some of this book isn’t for you.
I do find it interesting that The Master of the Key mentions being thankful for the shadow for it is the teacher. God is everything – All One. Evil is NOT the way, but it shows the way. Darkness is what the Master of the Key calls the ‘compassion of God’, its very existence reveals the light.
Sounds like a weird concept until you think of Yin yang.
There is no bad karma – all karma is good karma, for even the ‘bad’ karma has worth, for it is the teacher – the enlightener.
The elemental world may only find communion with the energetic world by releasing fear. It is fear we must transcend.
Oppositions and squares in the natal chart are what cause us to grow. They push and pull us – forcing us into action.
The same can be said of conflict between two charts. Challenging synastry with another who pushes our buttons will force change. In order to relieve the difficult aspects, the internal (square) or external (opposition) stress, we create solutions, we compromise, we find balance – we evolve.

Card energies to bring benevolent highest good for all readers, the Key wrap – up ~
42 Wide Open:
Expand your horizons beyond what you believe to be your limitations. Express yourself and your unique viewpoint. Re-train your brain. Possibilities are rich and infinite – manifest !
11 Balancing Act (Spirit Card):
Choose harmony over discord, and success will be yours ~
Ps. The book I am reading now is even groOovier – The Source Field. !!
It takes All One to a whole new level ~ love it !
More on that later…
owow. now, see…this is another posting that i will have to sit with for many many days. i just LOVE this, even the harder truths; it strikes me as so LOGICAL and i really think that ‘in the end’ we will find that all this complexity, all the struggles of physicists, to grasp and then articulate into our limited channel of language, the truths of sentient being will be stunningly SIMPLE.
like rusty tuning forks, some of us sit and twang away….being the minority, we realise how laughable we must seem to those coping on a different but equally valid vibrational level. honouring the individual path of all is crucial to receiving so much of the message as it is given to us, bit by bit.
(not sure why i went off in that direction of thought… must be my packed 11th? or perhaps a reader here will need to see it. i so agree -even if i dont like it all the time!- that all karma is necessary karma…i dont like to use the word ‘good’ or ‘bad’ either. it is immediately exclusive rather than inclusive and that, in my opinion, is the root of conflict over the mellenia. a vision-blocker of the worst kind.)
not really feeling my coffee yet…better hush 😉
I love that you said equally valid – in the book The Master of the Key speaks of our personal responsibility to All Others on the planet.
He repeatedly spoke of the interconnection between all humans, all life. If one of us suffers, we all suffer because our seperateness is an illusion brought about by living on the material plane.
Our true forms are radiant energetic bodies.
Everything around us is teaming with energetic life. At last we are beginning to become more aware of it. Prayer, meditation and tuning our ‘forks’ to the highest vibration will raise the strength of our energetic bodies leading to enlightenment, awareness of all dimensions of life on this planet.
The path to enlightenment is individual, and honorable. yes. Yet, any opportunity to help lift up the vibrations of another must be taken if we all are to progress together.
‘Our true forms are radiant energetic bodies’: this takes me right back to the Hemispheres posting 🙂
and today, my i-travels finally take me to a posting that has been waiting for me since mid jan and i think its in perfect synchronicity with this book’s message:
Ohhh ! It is in synch ! Thank you, Mary Beth, lovely ! xo
