If mental well-being is to flourish healthily, maximally and spiritually, particularly depression during COVID, then our mental paradigms need adapting to incorporate deeper levels of pure mental silence: awareness which facilitates disease-free consciousness and purifying transcendence.
Humanity has evolved beyond 'copy n paste' religious belief systems, replaced now with mature independent thinking -- integrated souls functioning through spiritually evolved intellects -- a level of cosmic consciousness through which the heart 'sees', intuits [Reality] beyond falsity.
But, here we must be careful, for, while maybe abandoning formal religion -- for whatever reason -- is a personal choice, abandoning God is not a choice even if we think we've jumped ship; abandoning God is not possible for the reason of evolution and the innumerable laws of nature.
Evolution is a God-appointed process -- the Transcendent which created the laws of nature. This Transcendent Power, through the agency of evolution, continues working within each of us, guiding unto more mature perceptions of inner Reality as separate from outer programming. In other words, notwithstanding 'decision' of maybe to leave formal religion, God-Force, through evolution, unceasingly works WITHIN everyone for the reunification of the human soul back to God -- back to Source AS Spirit Soul. More on evolution further on.
Self-Transcendence - Intuiting The Sacred
Coronavirus has left many intuiting for Sacred Immanence within: self-transcendence in defeating COVID by natural or spiritual means. Intuiting represents divine response to action, to what we can do practically regards COVID and mental health.
More than ever, emergence of spiritual leadership-understanding is called for globally. In this context, at individual level, the Sacred within you needs YOU to create Pure Thought space in our own mental environment thereby grow self-immune consciousness: grow health-emanating stillness whereby antibodies are rapidly forthcoming in establishing, not only a virus-free consciousness going forward, but complete positive mental health by natural means. To this outcome, self-transcendence simply means rising above our worldly affairs - and associated consciousness -- in meditation.
At practical level, the shift from human awareness unto Sacred consciousness -- unto self-transcendence -- involves only attuning our mental compass inward toward the realm of transcendental consciousness in meditation.
Establishing transcendental consciousness ultimately will emerge victorious in defeating COVID, heralding the spiritual-maintenance approach to complete mental / physical health in our own life, and globally going forward.
In establishing transcendental consciousness, esoteric scriptures undoubtedly are the reliable means on developing transcendental consciousness, whereby the born-into animalistic mind standard can undergo change -- alchemy from base level 'DE-pressed' consciousness to function blissfully or, transcendentally in 'EX-pressed' consciousness. Thus, in relieving symptoms of mental low energy or mood fluctuation, the secret lies in the expression of bliss consciousness.
In expanding this mental health theme let us decode three pivotal scriptures which have direct bearing on such matters plus resolution of this pandemic by natural self-immune means.
Luke 9-58 states:
'Birds have nests, foxes have holes, but the Son of Man has nowhere to lie down and rest'.
This heavily coded sentence is obviously not intended for literal surface interpretation. Unless these ancient words are understood esoterically then their hidden benefit -- of building mental health and COVID resilience naturally - is lost at practical level.
'Birds' here symbolize Genesis 'fowl of the air', they represent lower nature thought patterns: non-soul serving mind-sets which have 'nested' in the deeper mind, in the subconscious.
'Foxes' symbolize cunningness, divisiveness, selfishness, thus, not wanting to be exposed, they hide in safe places - in fox holes -- to deflect detection.
Thus the 'birds' -- lower thought nature -- have built 'foxholes' in the deeper mind from where to propagate negativity and low mental energy.
What is 'son of man' in relation to 'birds' and 'foxes'?
Luke 9-57 puts it:
"As they went on their way, a man said to Jesus, I will follow you wherever you go".
'Following' biblical Jesus means replicating the symbolism for which the title 'Jesus' stands, which is, Ideal or Perfect Soul. In other words, Jesus represents Perfect MIND, the spiritually Enlightened consciousness - the God-given Potential within each of us.
The man in this scripture is symbolism for 'son of man', 'son' meaning offspring of the mind's lower nature - 'man' symbolizing mind.
So, as divine status can only know Itself through Itself, biblical Jesus is revealing that the man (carnal mind) cannot 'follow' Jesus, [Enlightened mind] AS 'son of man' into the kingdom of health, happiness and bliss consciousness, that such lower state of mind is not compatible with divine consciousness.
'Son of man' represents a subconscious law of lower mind and its non-spiritual dynamic, including ignorance of the source of mental / physical health and COVID Immunity.
'Son of man' is symbolism for carry-over programming from previous lives which conditioning is rooted in duality consciousness, in opposites such as good-bad, love-hate, like-dislike, possible-impossible, including negative or depressive attitudes regards healing, health and happiness.
With no capacity for relating spiritually or lovingly, lower nature in principle recognises only ill-health and negativity as opposed to Immutable Truth -- inner healing, compassionate, transformative well-being and love-consciousness expression.
Thus the reason 'son of man' has nowhere to rest or lie down is because it is not possible to do so: not feasible for lower nature to rest simultaneously in pure consciousness.
Involution -- Evolution in Relation to 'Son of Man'
Humanity exists in cycles of involution / evolution eternally: Spirit descends - involution --into matter, forms the physical body marking the beginning of 'evolution' the process back unto Wholeness. In this context, the human soul at birth arrives with a non-spiritually developed intellect, plus five senses of perception set at animalistic standard. We come here with the initial ability of experiencing in carnal sense consciousness only, the involution level THROUGH which we evolve and ascend AS higher consciousness.
Equipped initially in experiencing through animalistic standard of perception, we're born with a non-discerning intellect which interprets 'reality' through conditioned awareness. Thus, like caterpillar-butterfly metamorphosis, evolving out of this son of mortal man cocoon unto eternal Son of God consciousness and beyond, is the purpose of our life on earth. Through this seemingly impossible carnal/cocoon involution, humans become transformed from 'son of man' unto Angelic Son of God, thereby further soul evolution unto higher states of Spirit consciousness.
From the involution / evolution perspective we can see that humans must also come to earth with a non-fully developed immune system.
In the context of developing self-immunity - of defeating COVID naturally -- meditation without doubt is key and vital.
Ignoring the soul's yearning for spiritual evolution and optimal mental health is causal of almost all human mental suffering, suffering which has its genesis in residual chronic stress and lack of higher-self-expression.
Until we awaken consciously from this involution slumber, the human soul remains under subconscious law, thus maintaining 'son of man' standard in perpetuity: conditioned intellect without ability of spiritual discernment, without Resolute mental awareness. Thus, no place which will give the mind that which intuitively it is seeking, that of eternal bliss-health consciousness now.
Meditation and the Immune System
Stress compromises the immune system, whereas, meditation -- by producing greater levels of antibodies to respond to and prevent potential viral attack -- produces immunity. Therefore, by establishing transcendental consciousness and a stress-free physiology, regular daily meditation releases mature T-cells, lymphocytes or antibodies from the thymus gland to defend against foreign antigen invasion.
Meditation interrupts the cause cycle of mental dis-ease and mood fluctuation. In this context, bypassing 'the transcendent present moment' in meditation is a costly mental health oversight.
The reality is, mental well-being exists already within as potential bliss-consciousness -- only needing infusion into the mind. By dissolving residual subconscious stress, meditation expands the mind's conscious capacity of withstanding ever-deepening bliss-natured silence.
Mind-centring disciplines such as yoga and mantra meditation are invaluable in establishing mental stability, brain coherence and ability of full concentration. Thus, concentration is an OUTCOME of meditation and not a requirement for its practice.
Meditation is seated yoga known as raja (royal) yoga (unity). In this context, silently inner hearing the sacred sound AUM would be an excellent sound vibration for mantra meditation and mental stimulation.
Jesus said: After Judas (son of man / lower-ego) had left (when the fox became exposed):
"Now God's glory is revealed through him" Luke 13-31
Biblical translation: when 'son of man' standard becomes surrendered in meditation, higher mind ('him') ascends unto 'Son of God' -- awakened to the Sacred within. 'Son of God' is a biblical title given unto souls who, through inner meditative means, have conquered Goliath - 'son of man' within -- thereby redemption, salvation or, transcendence of human soul unto transcendental eternal consciousness.
Thus the Light which rids 'son of man' darkness -- de-pressed consciousness -- readily establishes bliss-mental-health-consciousness, to include natural immunity to COVID.
