The Meaning of Mustard Seed
The one additional point I was going to make about polarization is that the emotionally polarized person is very subject to believing lies. If he likes the person or he is friend or family he will often believe a lie without question.
The mental person will use discernment and become suspicious when the untruthful one does not make sense.
A reader also gave us a great quote from DK identifying the emotionally polarized as:
(1) an untrained mind and feeble intellect, (2) set apart or different from ones fellow men (3) the possession of a creed (ideals), because no matter how good they bar some out, and (4) pride and ambition.
The next step up in identifying polarities is in the understanding of the mental vs intuitional.
Just as the mentally polarized is higher in spiritual evolution than the emotional even so is the intuitional person higher than the mental.
There is an important point to keep in mind. That is the mind is the gateway to all higher polarization and when dealing with the emotional person (or lower) the intuitional person temporarily will descend to lower polarizations. The emotional cannot understand the mental person let alone the intuitional one.
A reader asks us to think of the meaning behind the mustard seed verses. One interesting new twist on it that he seems to be indicating is that there is enough energy in the matter of a mustard seed to move a mountain. If we change even the matter of a small seed into pure energy this can indeed be transmuted unto tremendous energy. It only takes a couple grams of converted matter to make an atomic bomb.
Interesting interpretation. As I have stated many times each inspired writing has a number of interpretations. Let me give a new one.
“He replied, “Because you have so little faith. I tell you the truth, if you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there’ and it will move. Nothing will be impossible for you.” Matthew 17:20
“He replied, “If you have faith as small as a mustard seed, you can say to this mulberry tree, ‘Be uprooted and planted in the sea,’ and it will obey you.” Luke 17:6
What is the similarity between a tree and a mountain?
They are both symbols of the kingdom of God.
What is the meaning of the sea? This stands for the peoples of the earth (Rev 17:15)
What is a seed?
It contains the hidden knowledge of life which is revealed when nourished. This is the life of the soul, the bridge of spirit (life) and matter (death).
This said, let us interpret.
If you believe what you receive from your soul (the mustard seed) you shall see the kingdom of God (the mountain or the tree) and you shall take the kingdom from it’s high place and cast it among the multitudes causing the kingdom to permeate the whole.
Reader comment: So, please tell me if I am wrong, but I think you are giving us one big clue when you said “contemplate”. You are trying to get us to stretch our muscles and reach above the plane where are normally polarized, even if only for a minute or two, and tell the rest of us how their viewpoint has changed vs their normally polarized viewpoint.
JJ: Basically you are right. It is important that we stretch ourselves. DK, for instance, is proof that one can intelligently contemplate that which he has not achieved.
As some of you know he is a fifth degree initiate. Even so he has given us quite a bit of information on initiations six through nine which he has not yet taken. The Christ himself is working on his seventh. The last two are not even taken on this earth. I am sure DK had to stretch himself to intelligently write about that which he had not yet achieved.
Only about 10% of the population have achieved reasonable mental ability, but I would guess that less than 1% have achieved full mental polarization.
In turn about 1% have achieved some functioning on the intuitional level, but less than one out of a thousand are polarized in that plane.
Most of the group here are aspiring to the plane of intuition wherein lies permanent soul contact and it can only do us good to contemplate our next step.
Soul contact has been compared to the Holy Spirit, but there is a subtle difference. The Holy Spirit is a great cosmic entity which surrounds and permeates all form. This entity has its representative on many levels and manifests through them. Just as there is one who represents the office of Christ, even so there is one on the earth representing the life of the Holy Spirit. DK calls him the Mahachohan. The soul more accurately corresponds to the Christ, or the middle principle – the mediator between God and man. Through the soul one may then contact the Holy Spirit, or its representative, or its emanations. The soul is the door to all higher contact.
And through the soul one may tune into the world of the intuition. The world of the intuition is not the same as the fire of the spirit. It is more aptly described as “the light which gives light, yet burneth not with sentient fire.”
Here is an exercise for you.
An emotional, mental and intuitional person are contemplating the reality of God. What is the difference in their approach to discovery?
