“Never regard study as a duty, but as an enviable opportunity to learn to know the liberating influence of beauty in the realm of the spirit for your own personal joy and to the profit of the community to which your later works belong”. – Albert Einstein
Hello, my name is Kala.
I’m not here to teach you anything; rather I’m here to help you remember what you already know at a soul level. I teach what are referred to as wisdom teachings. Some of the most recognized are the teachings from ancient Egypt, Greece and Celtic Europe, and others are from the ancient wisdom of Sumeria and India. These esoteric teachings are much older than this earth and the wisdom they offer is of most benefit when one discovers or rather uncovers, what is unseen rather than seen.
The teachings come from the other planes of existence. They are introduced to the mind and then experienced through the heart and soul. Perhaps it could be more accurately described to say that they are absorbed within to gain new life, rather than being committed only to memory.
These tidbits are pearls of wisdom from my book, 9 Life Altering Lessons: Secrets of the Mystery Schools Unveiled. If you are interested in more information, please check out the 9 Lessons book or consider studying with me at my school, The Academy of Mystical Arts & Spiritual Sciences.
The first lesson is:
We Live In A Magical Universe,
which means that
The Possibilities Of What We Can Create Are Infinite!
…. Excerpt from 9 Life Altering Lessons by Kala Ambrose
The cyclical nature of the universe has been understood by the mystery schools since their inception. Man over time, has become confused, believing that Time is linear and proceeding in a straight line. Yet, ask any history scholar who researches timelines for a living and they will admit that history does in fact repeat itself, repeatedly! And with this repetition, humanity appears to make the same mistakes, encounter the same experiences and relive commonalities over and again.
Why is this? The answer is that we are here on this earth plane to learn and grow and how we achieve this is by encountering experiences (lessons) which we repeat over and over until we understand what we need to learn from this experience. Once the point or points of the experience has been understood, the lesson no longer needs to be repeated and we continue on to a more complicated lesson. This takes the knowledge we have gained and continues on to a deeper lesson on our path to wisdom and enlightenment. Think of this concept much as one would when studying principles of mathematics. At first, we are introduced to the concepts and are instructed in the ways of addition and subtraction. Once you have achieved mastery over this, you move forward to multiplication and division, which are more complex forms of the same ideal. The same would proceed with Algebra and Geometry.
The ancients taught about the cyclical nature of our world, and our existence using simple and complex examples to get their point across. They taught the cycles of change describing the seasons using the Ouroboros, the symbol of a serpent swallowing its tail. Both were meant to teach that we are always in the process of creating and recreating and this fluctuates with our active/solar side and our passive/lunar side. It is the balance of all things and the understanding that they are not separate, but rather part of the whole and both are required for the full completion of the experience.
For example, which living creature would you say is more important, a Cow or a Bee? Are you sure? Do both not have something to provide to this world? If we examine these two closely, we see the Cow, gentle, passive, giving, in deep thought and when we look at the Bee, we see activity, creation, moving from one experience to the next, sharing as it travels. Do not both of these natures exist in us as well? At times, we must be contemplative in our surroundings, and at other times, we must take action and create to nourish not only ourselves, but others.
When we are out of balance, we are too far in one of these directions. If we stay active all of the time, there is no time for inner contemplation and self discovery. In this state, we are unable to digest what we have experienced. In the same way, if we are too still and just spend time in thought, we miss the opportunities provided for us to grow and expand our consciousness.
The first key is to understand that we must work to achieve balance in both sectors. This has been taught in Eastern cultures using the symbol of the Yin/Yang, which explains that both are required to make the whole. Neither is better or right, both are equally important. We must have passive time to reflect and active time to grow and we must face our shadow selves in order to fully see the light.
This understanding has been taught, not only in the mystery teachings, but also by Plato, who described the universe as a circular immortal being. This cyclical teaching is also described in indigenous tribe’s teachings, Celtic and Norse teachings, Chinese and other Asian teachings, Egyptian teachings, Alchemist teachings, and Greek, Gnostic, and Hindu teachings. In modern times, psychologists including Carl Jung also wrote about the Ouroboros, describing it as an archetype with great significance to understanding the human psyche.
You will soon discover with each lesson, one only experiences the outer layer. As your consciousness opens and expands, you will find deeper meaning and truth in each one. As we have said, many esoteric teachers refer to this as peeling back the layers of the onion. Have you ever peeled an onion? There are layers after layers to be pulled and this analogy is helpful in understanding the delicate layers that exist together to make the whole, in both the teachings and the understanding of the cosmos and the universe.
In the teachings it is said: When a student first glimpses this truth and the thought of it begins to burn in their mind, that more can exist beyond what they first thought possible, the first glimpse of light dawns on the horizon for them and they decide at that moment to begin their quest. They soon realize that if they can become the master of their thoughts and emotions, they can remove themselves from this cycle of the wheel of karma and grow closer to experiencing their true inner selves.
Once the student steps outside of the belief that their previous basic thoughts are the only thoughts that exist in life, they open up the floodgates to the greater possibilities the universe has to offer. This is where true magic begins!
