Overview of Our Life Wave
By Richard Kieninger
For the first few billion years after the Creation of our universe, our Archangels were busy forming stars and planets. Then, after the earth had cooled, our planet’s Angelic Host was busy developing life forms. Our Life Wave officially began with the incarnation of the first Ego into the first human physical vehicle, which occurred a little over one million, ten thousand years ago. Our Angelic Host had experimented with various prototypes before selecting the body best suited to receive Human Egos. (As a bit of “esoteric trivia our physical vehicles are supposedly among the best that any Angels have developed.) Most Human Life Waves exist on the Physical Plane for about one million years. Our planet’s life wave—the time between the incarnation of the first human and the Progression of the Life Waves—is to last close to one million, seventeen thousand years.
From Clod to God
With about seven thousand years left until the next Progression, we are about one million, ten thousand years into our life wave, and yet only seven-tenths of one percent of the Egos assigned to our planet have mastered the first four planes of existence. This means that 99.3 percent of us have yet to achieve the purpose of our existence, and little time to do so. This is not the case on other planets, where the majority of humans are ready to advance to the Angelic Plane. Many years ago, Christ formed the wisest Egos of our planet into groups called the Brotherhoods (They were not organized on other planets because they were not necessary) to help the rest of mankind on our planet advance. The Brotherhoods developed a Great Plan to achieve this task, and implemented it about six thousand years ago.
During the first four hundred thousand years of our Life Wave, mankind existed in a peaceful, abundant environment in which all its needs were richly supplied. This is the period referred to as Eden, also referred to in the Bible. Our Angelic Host anticipated that we would advance naturally in these conditions. This approach has been used with success on some other planets, although not in the majority of cases. After some time, however, it became obvious that mankind was simply stagnating. Why? One possible reason is that development of the Mind through learning about the Physical Plane requires that we expend the effort to examine cause-and-effect relationships, and it seems that when all our needs were met, as in Eden, we had less impetus to examine cause and effect in our lives.
The End of Eden
After four hundred thousand years of Eden, about one-third of Earth’s Angelic Host began to believe that humanity would be spurred to greater advancement if the physical environment were more challenging. This was supported by the history of advancement on most other planets. Eventually, the dissident faction of the Angelic Host mentally destroyed Eden. The resulting physical environment then became more challenging, and humans was forced to reason and solve problems in order to remain alive. With the end of Eden’s ease, mankind began to advance at a faster rate.
Jehovah and Lucifer
The leaders of the two Angelic factions that differed over the Eden conditions were named Lucifer and Jehovah. Jehovah was the elected Regent of the Angelic Host, and led the group that supported Eden. In mainstream Christian thought, Jehovah is a name for God. It was the first English translation of the Hebrew word JHVH—or YHVH—one of several names used in the Old Testament to refer to God. (The Hebrew language is written without vowels, and later Biblical scholars believe that Jahveh, or Yahveh, is a more accurate translation of the Hebrew word.) “Jehovah” was sometimes used by the tribes of Israel as a name for God, as was the word “Elohim.”[i]
However, the Brotherhoods teach that the angel Lucifer led the faction that eventually overturned Eden. Traditional Christianity considers Lucifer a name for the devil, which is a carryover from much more ancient times. The concept of Lucifer as evil actually arose in Lemurian times. During the latter days of the Lemurian empire, a group of Katholi priests led their followers—who had been taught to wish for the return of Eden—to see Lucifer as loathsome because he was responsible for the destruction of Eden. Interestingly enough, the etymological definition of the name, Lucifer, means light-bearer, or light-bringer. The name more accurately fits the story of Lucifer as the Angel who brought light to man, by creating the conditions that have given us cause us to advance.
Following the Angelic differences over Eden, some members of both Angelic factions were asked to trade places with Angels from other planets in our Solar System, namely Venus and Mercury. Apparently, it was important that the number of Angels assigned to each planet be maintained. This decision was made by the Archangel Melchizedek, the elected Regent of our Archangelic Host. At this time, He assumed Regency of our Angelic Host as well. Melchizedek is not well known in popular thought. The Bible mentions him as the King of Salem (which means peace) and states that his days are “without beginning and without end.”
Before Civilization: The Need for Cooperation
Incredible as it may seem, mankind spent an additional 532,000 years—even longer than the period of Eden—to achieve the first civilization on our planet—Lemuria, approximately seventy-eight thousand years ago. What happened during that period of time? Essentially, people scrambled for food and shelter. According to The Ultimate Frontier, one problem was that people chose to fight each other for the available resources, rather than joining forces to share resources and build together. Civilization depends on people working cooperatively together. Until mankind was able to do that, it failed to advance significantly.
S. I. Hayakawa, in his classic text Language in Thought and Action, points out how much we take for granted the tremendous amount of cooperation that exists in our society. Many of the buildings and streets around us could simply not have been built by one person or even by one family; they required many people working together. We assume a great deal about how people work together: that they will organize themselves to attack common problems, that workers will follow their supervisors’ instructions, that most people will keep agreements and pay for goods and services rendered.[ii]
However easily understood these simple basic cooperative skills are understood today, they were apparently lacking for over five hundred thousand years of our history. Families cooperated to some degree, but did not extend their trust to other families for many thousands of years. The Sun Rises, a novel that details the beginning of the Lemurian civilization, states that two families had developed some rudimentary alliances and had began working together and pooling resources. After many hundreds of years of successful cooperation between these two families, they at last—with the help of some Angels and some wise human Egos—extended their cooperative experiment to include other family groupings and so founded the Lemurian civilization. This was mankind’s first, and to date most successful, civilization.[iii]
Cooperation remains a challenge for us. Although we have cooperated greatly in order to build the civilizations that now exist, wars and conflict continually threaten what we have built. In order for us to advance further, individual people, groups, and nations must continue to learn to cooperate and work together more effectively, for the good of all.
