Dear Visitor, Hello and welcome to the Spirit Communication portion of my web site. I want to share with you The Ascendant Path and the Temple of the Soul, two of my favorite channelings by one of the ancestors I work with in my work with meditation and altered states. The ancestor John.
Who is the ancestor John?
John was an Essene scholar who lived in the time period of the man Jesus. The Essenes were known for their abilities of healing, prophecy and sacred law. They were the authors of the Dead Sea Scrolls, were descendants of the order of Melchezedeck and were considered masters of the Kabbalah.
John is noted for his poetic wisdom and his masterful knowledge of the book of Revelation.
John's words invoke in people a sense of wonder that flows from his philosophy of natural spiritualism.
I hope you enjoy this teaching. Sincerely, Kevin Ryerson
The Ascendant Path
By your birth you have chosen to come into the earth plane to learn of your own celestial nature. The grandeur of your nature is that you are not simply an entity born of the physical that has become conscious of itself as a physical entity, but rather you are a spiritual energy, and energy is one with the grander mystery of all things. Remember, the spirit is the light, the mind is the builder, and the
physical is the result.
Love the Lord God with all your heart, mind, strength, and soul and your neighbor as yourself. Your business is the affairs of human-kind. Are you your brother's keeper? Are you your sister's keeper? Indeed, this is what you till when you enter the earth plane. This is the law of right fellowship.
Where should you go from here? Closer to God. And in what manner? By instructing others and pouring out your experiences to them. For as each son and daughter of God and man and woman is lifted up, all others are drawn to him. You uplift others by becoming as a teacher in each act, each deed, and each word. A teacher is not a system of organized information-rather, a teacher is one who seeks to inspire.
The steps you may follow include right diet, right occupation, right service, right expression, right prayer, and the cornerstone of all of these-meditation. Draw upon the talents that you have been given in measure. Select those which serve you, which you love to do; then you may love others in serving them. Right expression gives you the keys to communicate with other. Monitor your words carefully, and ultimately you express the spirit. Practice meditation , which is the
calming of your physical body in the presence of God, so that your nature is pure. Right prayer is your dialogue with the most high. These are steps you may follow. But above all else, love one another.
Choose a path that has heart, something you love to do. And always choose the middle path, neither extreme asceticism nor
extreme indulgence, and the path becomes self-actualizing. If you hone your talents to that which you love to do, then you will have the highest inspiration to pursue that path, and thus you will harness all of your resources.
There is only one life purpose, and that is to discover your unity with God. With regard to your life service, the personality is a tool; it is the vocabulary by which you communicate with other beings upon this plane. Aspects of this personality, or vocabulary, can be arranged to communicate or articulate your talents and other unique tools. These talents, based upon experience from past lives, can then be organized into a particular service to society, or to the spiritual community as a whole. This becomes your life work or life service-some may even say life purpose.
Meditation is the tool for properly accessing and establishing your priorities and by which you spiritualize your talents and align the with the true purpose of finding your unity with God. Meditation may even draw unto the self the events and alterations of personality necessary to achieve your life service. But again, it is but recall, the process of memory.
Each of you has a blueprint of your life pattern. We would say that mind is the builder and your spirit is the blueprint that gives rise to the illusion of absolute predestination. You choose the quality of the structure. You may build upon the rock or the sand. the blueprint is the build a living temple. If God dwells in that temple, the structure is complete. Though a play may be fixed in its dialogue, structure, and time, can you not shape the words with your passion and crate meaning anew? So, even though there is the illusion of a fixed time structure in time and space, so in turn your mind is the builder.
Each of you is portal through which the light comes. Each of you is a facet upon a prism. The prism turns and from that prism flows forth many diverse points of light that illuminate the plane and take it to its higher level of purpose and existence.
When you perceive life through your five physical senses alone, you are indeed limited. But when you allow your mind to expand into past lives and future potentials, you are transformed, and reality, in the sense of the five physical senses, crumbles. This is not to die but to be transformed into a new reality, a new society, a new social order, a new brotherhood, a new sisterhood, a new humanity.
So, to express your full humanity, you must go beyond the five physical senses. Formerly, you were thought to be mind and body with the spirit sitting beyond your reach. Then, with the discovery of the subconscious mind, was not your society transformed? Do you not now take into account a fuller measure of the human being in your societal affairs? How much moreso will your reality be reshaped and transformed when, individually and as a society, you accept yourselves as spirit.
Gathering bodies of evidence will eventually dictate a new understanding of your reality. Even as science has harnessed new insights, so in turn will mind and spirit harness new insights. Allow God to quicken your intellect and you will be given a new heart and a new mind, and the world as you have known it, the world of grief and stress, will pass away and you will enter into a thousand years of brotherhood. How so? By being of mind, body and spirit, which is your true nature. You are one with God, who is love.
But above all else, the dialogues that you carry on with the channel speaking, or any other ancestral spirit, have worth only if you love one another. Your dreams, your meditations-these are your recall. Simply remember. This is the only process that you must do. Meditate, draw on your breath, relax, and expand the mental dimensions. For mind has only one gift-to remember. And when you merge mind, body and spirit, you remember the divine, from which you came and which you return.
Seek the principles which heal. Seek the principles which generate the divine. Then in turn these forms of service would extend to all of your principles and all of your actions. Above all else, allow God to quicken your intellect in these ways, and then you will see with the inner eye. Even those things which come upon you and cause you stress are moreso to strengthen you. Those things which bring you peace are but to be as a positive reinforcement of that state. For indeed, there is no such thing as testing or failure, there is no such thing as victory or defeat. There is only the state of the isness that is within, the state of being human. And in being human, you are mind, body, and spirit. This is the critical tool of peace-merger of mind, body, and spirit, and then the manifestation of Christ consciousness within.
If you see the shadows darken, know it is because the lamp and the oil of life and faith burn short within you. But if your oil is tilled well, you will burn ever brighter, illuminating and attracting those who would seek the light. Hide not yourselves away in the shadows of your own fear, but keep your eye single, and all souls will eventually come home.
Pour yourself out. Be yourselves more filled with the true self. The only sin is selfishness, perpetuation for the sake of self. Pour yourselves out of these things; then, all that is left is that which is of God, the divine inspiration. How to pour ourselves out? In service to others. This is not the suppression of self; this is the active dynamic force of true self.
Know also, however, that the servant is worthy of his hire; so therefore, you would also receive of your own service. And as the servant chooses the master he desires to serve, so you may pour yourself out in service but then be filled up with the spring that never runs dry, the well that comes from within and replenishes you. If you would drink of this spring, you would never thirst again but would be given a new heart and a new mind and a new way to see things. So, pour yourselves out in service and then merge your mind, body and spirit unto God. Prayer and meditation afford you the opportunities to come to these inner rerevelations. The merger of mind, body, and spirit in service to God reveals the aspect of you that is unique, that each of you is a child of light and is to be as the light to illumine the path that leads to truth. But how sad that some confuse the path with the truth itself, for broad is the road which leads to discord, discontent, and accusation, but narrow is the road which leads to truth and illumination.
Make straight the ways of the Lord and your nature is shaped, and you are made as straight as a rod, that you would not rule over others, but bring them into harmony. For the rod is that which gives guidance and direction and touches you gently on one shoulder or the other. It is not the staff of the conqueror, but the staff of the shepherd who loves and tends the flock and draws the very sustenance of life from this activity. So in turn with each of you, that as you go forth in balance, and with the staff of truth, you attract others to you who would also become as children, innocent and wise in all things. There is no foolishness in this, nor even anything utopian, for these things do not arise from philosophies; they arise from the fact that you are children of light, children of God.
So, seek first the kingdom, then all things are added unto you. For the word kingdom means "the natural order of things," and this springs up from within each of you and must dwell in the living temple that is the physical body.
Life in this solar system is to be the "eyes" of the universe, to explore it and have its nature understood, that you would understand life beyond the boundaries and regions of its biochemical form. For life has linkage not only with the energies that surround the physical body, but also with the etheric forces, extending even unto the stars themselves. The future of life upon this planet is that eventually you will become beings of energy and will have less and less need for the biochemical physical body. Moreso you shall become etheric beings. It s not so much that you will extricate yourselves from the physical body and so therefore be made pure and return to the angelic state, but moreso you shall extract yourselves from the biochemical physical body necessary for maintaining your perception of life and shall become more and more beings of energy and light in the level of perception.
For the universe itself has a pattern of natural unfoldment and attunement with those forces which are the mind of God, although God is also a being in
a state of existence. So in turn, even as you have a physical body, so in turn is the universe the body of God. Each of you is to bring forth balance within the self in attunement with these forces, that you would become as a prophet in your own right. For this is the visionary level.
The purpose of physical creation is to align yourselves with the higher force, which is God. In this you would draw yourselves up through the seven levels of existence to the higher levels of consciousness, to become that which you truly are-sons and daughters of God. This is accomplished through merging mind, body and spirit. Finally, you manifest God's nature upon the physical plane as it would be revealed to you through the Father/Mother God, or the Holy Spirit, which then makes you a living soul. For you would then have life by your revelations from one another.
Remember your higher ideals, your higher intentions. Choose to ascend to that level of consciousness that you feel is your highest. Activate that through your prayers to the one true energy, which is God.

The Temple of the Soul
The physical body is a temple in which the soul resides, and is thus its vehicle for experience upon this plane. The mind is the priest that dwells therein and seeks to contemplate the nature of God, and the spirit is the presence that links you with the divine.
You are not encased in the physical body as a place of imprisonment; you are here out of choice, for the purpose of experience and revelation. The physical body is the ability of the soul to have focus in time and space. It is the natural extension of the soul’s force in the earth plane and is given to its natural laws and dynamics. You are here to fulfill the law, not to be under it.
As men and women, you are a portion of spirit, a fine attunement of mind, body and soul. The merging of mind, body and soul is what you know as “personality.” You are not a limited personality shaped simply by parental or environmental influences; moreso, you are a personality shaped by all the cosmic influences.
For many thousands of years, mystics have known of the physical body’s true energy patterns, as well as the illuminations which surround the physical body, or the “aura.” It is only recently that your sciences have begun to document these things. In part, science is the scribe who documents that which God already knows. Indeed, the physical body has direct linkage with the universe itself, as reflected in the ancient science of astrology.
The physical body is the temple wherein the soul, which is the portion of God within you, has chosen to reside. So therefore, the soul is your linkage with the universe, and the physical body is but an expression of that soul on this plane. The physical body carries within it all the unique patterns of your past lives. It is shaped by the soul to perhaps even institute further physical body patterns through your children for further incarnations of that soul at a later point in time.
The flesh brain is a physical vehicle for storing the mind. It extends itself to other portions of the physical body through the nervous system. Picture the entire physical body as a reasoning faculty, or as a physical organ for the expression of the soul. Then, picture the patterns of individual thought, extending along the body’s various meridians.
In this way, the soul’s thoughts are extended into the physical body and manifest in specific properties within the various organs.
The soul is in a state of perfection, yet the illumination that it may give to this particular plane comes through your physical body, and is therefore filtered through your experiences on this plane, which is your karma. Each organ into which the soul’s thoughts are extended, has a specific function, and is reflective of a certain aspect of your personality. As your personality is manifested in the physical body through the filtration of the soul’s karmic patterns, disease is perhaps disharmony from a past life, which is regulated by the life force, which is the soul’s thoughts, and ponderance upon the physical body in this plane.
It is not so much that each organ bears a form of intelligence; it is moreso that each organ bears a system of consciousness. Even as you have discovered certain electromagnetic fields about the physical body, so, in turn, does each organ, by its very molecular existence and vibrations, give forth specific patterns of energy that may be perceived, studied measured and understood. Each of you is already an instrument for these measurements upon the subconscious levels, for each of these patterns activates the natural intelligence which resides in the cranial area.
Intelligence is but the ability to perceive, retain and apply. It is the intelligence which measures the energy pattern, or consciousness, of each specific organ, for consciousness is but a collection of a body of specific information. Consciousness is not so much an intelligence, or a reasoning, or even a state of mind. It is but a collective body of facts that must be activated and applied by intelligence. So therefore, it is the natural intelligence of the level of the soul, or the ability to perceive knowledge and apply it, that gives forth the illusion of intelligence in the physical body. But it is moreso a state of consciousness that is perceived and utilized by the natural intelligence of the mind itself. It is the mind which calculates each of these forms of resonance, and therefore, gives instruction to either limit or to allow its own natural abundance.
Various karmic patterns stored within the physical body have the capacity upon the level of the soul to shape the physical body after the fourth month of conception. Since stored within the genetic structure are also certain karmic patterns, this often determines the shape of the physical body – to act out karmic patterns from past lives. Ultimately, however, the soul shapes the physical body through its reflection of the personality. For the personality and the mind extend deep into the physical body, like the roots of trees extending deep into the earth.
The mind is the pattern of the entire physical body. It is separate from the physical body, yet grounded to it physiologically, and through the personality. The conscious mind can perhaps be said to be the personality, but not the total substance of mind, which includes the superconscious, conscious and subconscious mind functioning in attunement with the higher levels of the soul. So, since the soul itself is immortal, the mind has the ability to rejuvenate the body, which is its current vehicle, even to the levels of physical immortality. But immortality is moreso a property of the soul than a direct function of the mind.
The life force is the direct pattern of the soul’s expression in the physical body. It travels along the various meridians. When there is blockage within the mind, there is corresponding blockage within the personality, which is the reflective instrument of the soul. So the mind is the builder. It is the architect of the physical body and the architect of your existence. Hence, you can truthfully say that, as a man thinketh in his heart, so is he also in all of those things which he does.
The life force does not travel by capillary action, but is a completely independent system of energy. It travels through the blood within the hemoglobin, which is rich in iron, and its very flow generates a mild magnetic field. Also, the electrical properties of the nervous system, particularly the sympathetic nervous system, generate a similar mild magnetic flow. The life force, which extends forth from the soul, travels along these magnetic flows to various portions of the physical body. Its linkage with the soul is like individual streams of light, which flow forth from the sun – the light is not the sun itself; it is but a portion of its energies.
A spirit is a particular focus. When it says, “Ye are as a spirit,” it means that you are a point of inspiration on this plane within the spirit of the Father. But as a soul, you gain a greater sense of attunement with all levels of thought. The soul gains the breath of life from the spirit of the Father, but its individuality is that which gives it unique life patterns.
The soul knows neither time nor space, so it knows neither good nor evil. But, as it experiences the immediacy of time flow in these dimensions, the soul continuously arranges itself in acts and motivations throughout time and space. As these acts or memories continuously rearrange themselves into dimensions you call the personality or the conscious mind, they give themselves meaning in the context of known history, but eventually they must become realized within God.
The spirit is the allencompassing knowledge that is the Father. It is a body of knowledge and substance that all have access too, for this is what a spirit is – a body of information that activates certain points of inspiration within the focus of the mind. Since the Father is universal mind, and you possess mind as a soul, so do you possess the spirit, which is the Father. But the soul is your individuality within the allencompassing spirit.
Men and women were created in spirit since the foundations of the world. You incarnated into the physical plane for experience and revelation. By this, we do not mean learning in the ordinary sense, as there is no such thing as learning – there is only revelation. For each of you is a portion of God, a portion of spirit, a portion of universal mind, which knows all things to begin with.
Revelation comes to you by a process of remembrance. For if all things are a portion of the truer self, which is the soul, then they are only forgotten and must be revealed unto you. Just as you may lose a particular object of great price and recover it through remembering, how much moreso would you seek to remember the kingdom that is already your own?
Those faculties which are termed, “the higher self,” or what you term, “psychic,” are the various gifts of prophecy – speaking in tongues, divination, clairvoyance, telepathy. All these things are but remembrance from the levels of the soul.
Your various sciences and psychologies study the mind and the various hormones of man in search of the biological personality and linkage of mind and body within your species. Unfortunately, man rarely goes beyond those regions. He limits his studies to the mind and body, ignoring the influence of the levels of the soul.
It is peculiar that the human race identifies itself so much with the lower primates that you have drawn all of your evolutionary models and sense of yourself from rats. Consider the current state of your society and imagine what lessons have been learned. It would be wiser to study the higher primates, the higher mammalian forms, such as dolphins, and you will see intercooperation in a more appropriate environment; a highly fluid environment. For your own true environment is mind, which is as fluid as the ocean itself. It is feeling, as fluid as the ocean itself. Study these aspects of the animal kingdom and you will learn more of self and higher evolutionary patterns to emulate.
Currently, parapsychology has begun to explore the concept of past lives or reincarnation, which is sometimes considered a key to the soul. But still, most of your society continues to cling to ideas of genetic or racial memory, which see man as only the physical body, and the personality as conditioned only by the earth plane. Your truer nature is heaven, and is moreso a state of consciousness. For you are but shadows of the universe, and even as a shadow cannot exist without light and without the physical body, so, in turn, there is no existence without the mind, the body and the soul. Your reality is made up of consciousness.
You are not incarnate in the physical body. You are incarnate in the human personality. As long as the ego dominates, as long as the ego clings and you focus upon it rather than spiritualizing it, then you have not fully remembered who you are. You must activate the memory of the true source of your nature. That memory must become your nature. It is possible to be in the earth plane, yet not be of it. It is possible to be physically incarnate in the human condition, yet with full knowledge of your truly loving nature. Then, you hold it in full sway in heaven and on earth – as above, so below.
Your responsibility on this plane is to so spiritualize the personality and so integrate it with the levels of the soul, that when the hour of your passing comes, you may actually maintain and inhabit the personality you have now, that the personality you inhabit be worthy as a garment to encase the soul, perhaps for a sojourn again into another similar pattern.
The soul “wears” a personality as you would a garment. The personality, being such a garment, is eventually shed, and goes as a memory unto the level of the soul. It is not so much that you would pass away and lose all identity, for when you perceive yourself as a soul in this plane, you become as one living.
The soul is always in total illumination; it is the personality which is but a memory, but seems to dwell in confusion. Even as your memory and your mind consciously wander from affairs you desire to be focused upon, so, in turn, is it with the personality as a whole. For the personality is made up totally of mind, and it is only when it becomes integrated with the levels of the soul that it makes its truer advancements.
Man has often spoken of the soul as the mind of God, for the soul is immortal. It is the very center of man’s being, and when it leaves the physical body, the physical body becomes inactive. For it is not that you are biological creatures, dependent only upon the earth plane and its interplay and forces. Moreso, each of you is as a soul, and each of you is as a caretaker of universal forces themselves. In your dream states, you project into the astral realms and into the levels of the soul, which lie even beyond the God planes. In this, you must understand the physical body as the vehicle of the soul, as well as the projection of your energies upon the universal planes.
Your superconscious mind, which is synonymous with the spirit, is the sum total of all your past lives and all your future potentials. It is a vast ocean of cosmic consciousness that all of you are one with. When you incarnate, or when this consciousness focuses itself through the physical body at your birth, then collectively, the events of this lifetime are the sum total and expression of all your past lives and all of your future lives, transpiring simultaneously.
The same way that all of your childhood events create your adult personality, yet this is not the sum total of your being, so, in turn, the spirit, which is the sum total of all of your past lives and all of your future potentials on the earth plane, is still not the whole essence, the true self, or the true nature. It is but the soul’s sojourn through the physical. For indeed, to move beyond the issues of life and death, you must be children of light. You must express yourselves as children of God, for if you are immortal in your spirit or if your thought may survive for the briefest moments beyond the realms of the physical body, then indeed, you are a spirit. You are an energy that can neither be created nor destroyed.
To be human is to be of mind, body and spirit. To be human is not only to err, but to forgive error, because you are spirit, and spirit transcends error. Try not to dwell too much upon the limited vs. the infinite, which you are. Even as you have increased your mental resources and have passed through various schools of thought in forming your adult personality, how much moreso, when your mind enters into the threshold of the spirit. Even as you have misplaced an object and found it through recall, so in turn, now recall yourselves as part of that infinite sea in an ocean of consciousness. Your actions must be shaped by love. Love is your only ethic.
Understand, then, that the universe itself is the physical body of God. Your own physical body is your capacity to have focus in this plane. The physical body is your temple, and all those things which you take into the temple, you put upon the alter of God, and even as the universe itself is God’s expression, so, in turn, is your own physical body your expression unto God.
This is not to say that there must be a perfect anatomical form. Moreso, it is how you utilize it as a teaching expression unto one another. The physical body is not a curse upon you. It is your capacity to have expression in this plane. For without the physical body, there is no progression. In this way, each of you has been given a focus in this plane of your own choosing from the levels of the soul.
Acknowledging the physical body as a vehicle of expression on the earth plane is to cause you to seek the levels of the soul for your true nature, for each of you is as a soul, and the physical body, again being a focal point, gives you flexibility in this plane. It gives you the ability to be creative in this plane. Above all, it is a temple unto the one living God, of whom you are all sons and daughters.
So do not feel that the physical body is a burden upon you, for no matter what its capacity it is to bring into focus manifestation of your true nature as God. The physical body that you have been given, no matter what its shape or capacity, is not so much to be an instrument of suffering; it is to give you focus. Each of you must look upon the other, for you are your brother’s keeper and your sister’s keeper upon this plane.
Each of you has, within you, true freedom. Extend yourselves unto the regions of the astral, where you would travel into greater understanding. But moreso, serve the love that is in each and every one of you, for the capacity of the soul is the one true master which you must all serve, and that is the love within you.
Love is harmony. Look to the universe, and you shall find harmony. It is not a system of chaos. It is a system of harmony. It is the music of the spheres that extends into your planes that the physical body hears and records and perhaps knows not. For although you hear the wind and know not from where it comes or where it goes, so, in turn, you know there is but one atmosphere from which you draw the very breath of life. So it is with the spirit. There is only one spirit, one God, one love, one harmony, which gives you life and gives you the only sense of true value and worth, the only sense of true measurement whereby you may measure your sojourn in the earth plane. So, while you are incarnate, the physical body is your expression. It is your temple unto the living God, of which each of you is a part.
