Death involves the physical body and it disappears, yet the “subtle” bodies continue on and receive the new re-incarnated body in whatever form it presents, animal or human, possibly in a lower caste, or hopefully, at a higher status.
Levels 4–7 of universal energy frequencies deal with increasing levels of “consciousness” and at the top, level 7 symbolized by the lotus flower or the Jewel, immortality— eternal life, is attained. This top level is said to interconnect with the energies of all the universe, and thus the expression all is one and one is all, or as above so below. It is at this level that immortality and godhood is said to take place.”
A point of interest is the belief that plants contain higher frequency levels of energy. By consuming plants as our diet, we can obtain from them higher levels of consciousness. This is one of the reasons vegetarianism is common within neo-paganism. Essential oils are said to have high frequency and so affect the mind.
The goal of neo-paganism of the West and the religions of the East is to attain to the energy frequency level of the lotus and the jewel attaining godhood and escaping reincarnation. All religious activities are directed to this concept. Universal energy as described in this chapter is the core foundational belief of Eastern religions and in Western occultism. The religious activities are for the purpose of raising energy frequency levels from the material, speed of light level, up through the higher frequency levels and eventually reach to the Ultimate level. Illness is considered a burp, a blurb in the progress of ascending to higher frequency planes and to godhood. A multitude of acts and practices in these religions are designed with the idea that they will raise a person to the experience of nirvana.
PANTHEIST’S EXPLANATION FOR CAUSE OF DISEASE
Illness and disease are explained in the pantheistic viewpoint as resulting from imbalance or blockage of the presence, and flow through the body, of universal energy. Therapies are designed to balance, unblock, restore, infuse, or otherwise manipulate invisible energies which allegedly exist or circulate within the human body.
E.G. White wrote the following concerning universal energy:
The mighty power that works through all nature and sustains all things is not, as some men of science claim, merely an all pervading principle, an actuating energy. God is a spirit; yet He is a personal being, for man was made in His image. As a personal being, God has revealed Himself in His Son. Jesus, the outshining of the Father’s glory, “and the express image of His person” (Hebrews 1:3), was on earth found in fashion as a man. As a personal Savior He came to the world. As a personal Savior He ascended on high. As a personal Savior He intercedes in the heavenly courts. Before the throne of God in our behalf ministers “One like the Son of man.” Daniel 7:13.
Mrs. White often used the term vital force or similar expressions in her health writings. She was in no way expressing the same concept as that of universal energy. The word essence was used for that. She referred to the normal metabolism and functioning of our body that depends upon being in harmony with the laws of health, and the proper association of our systems to pure air, sunshine, water, exercise, rest, proper diet, avoiding injurious substances, using with moderation beneficial foods and placing our trust in God by keeping His physical and spiritual laws. Under these conditions, our system will function at its best.
We have learned in chapter 4 of the foundational teaching of pantheism’s explanation of our origin, that of blending two opposing parts of an imaginary universal energy. In this chapter we have looked at the many different names given to this energy. The concept is that illness and disease result from the imbalance of the two parts (yin-yang) of energy in our system. Treatment of disease in Satan’s system is an act of attempting to rebalance the energy. In following chapters we will look at various methods devised to affect balance and/or correct the vibration of universal energy in order to bring about health and healing.
That which takes our allegiance away from a Creator God and directs our allegiance to His counterfeit, will make void the grace of Christ toward us. It makes His word of no effect.
