The New Planetary Reality: The Coming Avatara and The Nine Paths to Enlightenment by Imre Vallyon explains the distinguishing factors between the physical or worldly domain and the spiritual domain of enlightened people like The Christ, The Buddha, Lao Tzu, and others throughout world history.
Vallyon explains the lower and higher order dimensions with the ninth being the most prominent. The Mahaparanirvanic Plane or ninth dimensional space is the highest order of the Father. The Paranirvanic Plane is the eighth dimension consisting of the Son or The Christos. The Nirvanic Plane or seventh dimensional space is the mother or Spirit.The Buddhic Plane is the sixth dimensional plane of the spiritual soul. Lastly, the third to fifth dimensional planes represent the physical body, emotions, and the mind.
The classic negations between and amongst opposing forces are assaults aimed at our physical well-being, emotions, mental well being, the psyche, and our livelihood. It is in the interest of the opposition to keep human consciousness in darkness. And so, the more light you shed around you the more opposition increases around you, according to Vallyon.
The light increases as one ascends through the Inner Planes because the opposition wants people to subsist in the lower dimensions, according to the author. The lower planes consist of either a purely proletarian existence or an overly materialistic one devoid of higher order humanitarian thinking and proclivities to do good unconditionally.
Vallyon points the way in order to progress from darkness to light. Essentially, the heart consists of a subtle light energy that is a combination of wisdom and unconditional love or total compassion. The Christ, The Buddha, Rama, Krsna,
and Lao Tzu were all warriors of the light in their day according to Vallyon.
It takes courage to obey the impulses of the heart when it provides guidance that the mind opposes. And so, part of the lesson of the spiritual warrior in us is to trust the heart without interference from the mind or the purely rational side of being. A corollary is that explaining things from the heart creates positive energy which people will accept more readily over purely logical approaches.
