The Molecular Relationship, Chapter 28
THE UNION OF SOULS
A basic purpose of the Molecule is to produce union among all people. Union must first begin with the individual self. The personality must be united with the Soul; worded another way, the lower self must be united with the Higher Self. The only way a continual union of any two or more people can take place is if the two follow the will of the God Within, or the Soul, which never disagrees with itself. One Soul is never out of harmony with another Soul for in the world of soul there is no "my soul" and "your soul."
Those who do not have Soul contact can only be united by strong authority which allows no freedom of choice or movement. This is always a temporary union and has been demonstrated several times in the Piscean Age, which is passing. Now, in the Aquarian Age, a new type of union will manifest. This will be a union through seeing eye-to-eye because all members of that union will have some contact with the Soul. Union through understanding will be the keynote.
Therefore, the first objective here is to lift the individual member up to the realm of the Soul so he can feel its warm radiation and learn to recognize Its voice. Those who have never contacted the Soul will be unaware of the voice of the Soul and will often make the mistake of believing that their emotional impressions are from their Soul.
The individual must be taught to reach the point of tension that brings "the still small voice," "the peace that passeth all understanding" and the "baptism of fire" which come from an inflow of Soul and Spirit energy. Each must learn the difference between these three. He will learn the difference between the feelings of the Soul and the feelings of the higher emotions which are a reflection of the Soul.
He must also learn the difference between the vibration received from a thoughtform of energy and the vibration of the Soul. He will learn the difference between the vibration of the interplay of Souls through high emotional levels (such as the sharing of energy in romantic love) and the vibration of the individual Soul. He must learn to differentiate between a channeled spirit that is under control of the Soul and one that is influenced by the lower self. Finally, he must learn the difference between the vibration of his individual Soul and a message or endowment of energy from a Master or a Spiritual Guide who works though the Soul.
Those who learn to differentiate between the Soul energies and these other energies will then have the unique capacity to achieve oneness in thought. When a complete Molecule achieves oneness of thought through becoming sensitive to the Soul, then the Spiritual Hierarchy, which is presided over by the Christ, can pour forth its spiritual energy, which is channeled down from the very presence of God into a group here on earth. At that moment, the veil between heaven and earth is "rent in twain" and the group is translated from the Kingdom of Man into the Kingdom of God. They will become people of wonder and miracles just as were the apostles of Jesus.
Many people believe that it is impossible for even two people to think as one, let alone a whole group. On the illusionary plane of the personality this is true, for if the consciousness is centered on the great illusion, then the grand order and synthesis of all things is not apparent and points of harmony are overlooked. Psychologists say that you can tell that you are dreaming by looking twice at any scene. If it looks entirely different each time you look, then you are dreaming. This is the way the illusion of the personality is. Every time we look at it twice it changes and every time two people look at the same illusion they see and interpret it differently.
There is, however, another world which we call the Kingdom of God, or the Kingdom of the Soul where truth changes not and principles are eternal. When two different people look through the eyes of the Soul all things are seen as one, for all Souls are one. Looking through the eyes of the changeless Soul instead of the personality, or the lower self, then the scene before them will look the same to both of them and they will see eye-to-eye. They will then experience the Union of Souls and the two will become one.
As the two, or more, become one, they will be aware that they are both feeling the same Soul energy, and sharing the same spiritual fulfillment at the same instant. It will seem almost as if the two lives are only one life. It is a wonderful realization. It can happen with any two or more individuals who are willing to look beyond the illusion of the personality to the real world of the Soul.
Jesus talked about this principle when he said: "For where two or three are gathered together in my name, there am I in the midst of them. " [Matthew 18:20] In modern language, we could say that when two or more gather together to seek Soul contact, for the purpose of union, the Christ consciousness will manifest in the midst of them.
Achieving this oneness is essential to the functioning of the Molecule. Without it we will merely have twenty-four ordinary people forming a group. With union through Soul contact, we will then have a functioning Molecule that can be accepted by the Hierarchy to lay the foundation for the complete transformation of the whole planet earth which will bring about the redemption from the Fall of Man as prophesied in the scriptures.
Union is easy to teach but difficult to accomplish in real life with real people. The first step to union is to believe in its possibility. This is a problem for many. Because most of us have not experienced a Union of Souls, the possibility of seeing eye-to-eye seems to be a dream of an idealist.
To make sure that we understand that union is possible or even desirable, it is important here that we define our terms. Union does not mean that we will all want to drive the same cars, work in the same jobs, or paint our houses the same color. It does not mean that all of our computer brains will calculate the same way. On the other hand, it does mean that we will each see the same underlying principle behind a set of facts when they are expounded to us. Reread the discussion of principles and facts and bear in mind that when a principle is touched upon, the person who is sensitive to the Soul will sense a flash of light. Two or more people with the same sensitivity will experience the same flash and will experience a similar understanding together. They may relate the facts with different words, but they will understand the principle because they both received light from the same source, the Soul, or God Omnipresent.
In the world of the Soul, or the Kingdom of God, all life is one. There is no division or dual meaning. All Souls are one because they are linked to their source. Contacting the Soul is therefore as if we are contacting the One Great Life which is God. If there is truly only One Life pervading the Universe, how could it disagree with itself? If two people contact God pertaining to one point of doctrine, will they not both then agree in principle? Verily, yes.
A good scripture to study to inspire us toward oneness was given by the Master Jesus. He said:
"The Lord our God is one Lord: And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy Soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength: this is the first commandment. And the second is like, namely this, Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these." [Mark 12:29-31]
When we consider that the energy of love is the urge toward union, then we can look at this scripture in a different light. We can then interpret the greatest commandment as follows: There is only one God or One Life and we are to seek union with that Presence in ourselves and with others with all of our hearts, all of our Soul, all of our mind and strength. We will think, feel and act as one life as God is one life. We will seek to be one with our neighbor as we are one with ourselves. This is the greatest commandment because it redeems man from the Fall, and all other commandments are based upon this principle.
The key to union is found in the ancient statement that "energy follows thought." If our thought or attention is placed upon the illusionary personality, then our God Energy is also there reinforcing the illusion that separates one brother from another. Our attention is placed on the personality when we focus on the faults and imperfections of others. Energy is then centered on the illusion of imperfection and we cannot see the perfected One God in others or ourselves.
The key to Soul contact is to remember that there is a unified God that is omnipresent and is therefore in our neighbor as well as ourselves. We must look beyond the deception of division and imperfection and always put our attention on the God Presence. This will cause our energy to reach the God Presence in others and ourselves and we will sense the union of our Souls no matter how irritating a fellow brother or sister may be. As soon as we feel any irritation, we must shift our attention to the fact of the God Presence. Since energy follows thought, there is then a shift of energy and a degree of Soul contact is achieved.
If we are constantly concerned about the imperfections of others and allow them to be a source of irritation to us, then Soul contact will only be a dream unrealized. It helps us here to know that we all spend many lifetimes on this physical plane and those who make the most mistakes generally have not had a lot of experience in handling life. Would a college student get irritated at a kindergarten child for not knowing algebra? It is just as unreasonable for us to get angry at young Souls because they are still selfish and have not taken the same courses that we have.
Another point to remember is that people in the dark often get angry when presented with a greater light, such as the Jewish leaders who crucified Jesus. If we are too quick to judge and jump to the conclusions that seem to be, rather than the revelations of the soul, we could wind up condemning those who are in the light as being heretics.
