This article follows the three published in last years’ newsletters on the Interrelationship of the Kingdoms, in which the animal kingdom, the plant kingdom, and the mineral kingdom were delved into.
Perhaps I should expand my title to say “Interrelationship of (some) of the Kingdoms (of Earth or further).” My experience of the interrelated web is that it goes on and on, down into infinity and up into infinity. Through it courses the joy of Life. Sometimes the patterns of interconnectedness definitely need adjusting, changing, healing, disentangling. Other times the beauty of their patterns carries one beyond awe.
The patterns are not static. They move according to many different levels of universal laws, each law perfectly describing what is occurring, if only we learn to pay attention. We try with our minds, of course. But it is not a mental exercise. It is pure attunement.
The Devic Kingdom
This is an evolutionary stream that the Ancient Wisdom teaches us works in tandem with our process, yet has completely different imperatives. One could say that it is in tandem because we seek existence within the levels of consciousness or material reality where devic beings carry out their Life-appointed tasks.
In perfect obedience to patterns of universal law and guiding principles undetectable and unimaginable to everyday human existence, this form of consciousness is the builder behind the formation of particles of Matter in their simplicity and complexity at all the many levels of the Cosmic Physical Plane.
Allied to this kingdom are Entities and Beings of which we have no knowledge, although there are obscure references and names that trickle down through various wisdom traditions.
All those interconnected, interrelated webs of which I have written are all built, moved, re-strung, reorganized by this kingdom. This is its task. Just as we find the energy of our deep inner self through creativity, this kingdom finds fulfillment through the creation and destruction of form.
There are intricate hierarchies of beings that have their fields of activity in many different areas of physical creation and destruction. For example, the beings known as angels are devic entities that interact with human beings.
The interrelationship of the devic kingdom with the human, the animal, the plant, and the mineral kingdoms as a whole is much less visible, far more indirect, than what can be perceived between the “Earth” kingdoms. This is because it does not get any denser than the higher etheric layers. Also, I suspect interdimensional engineering is involved. A little like the silicon chip in a computer, or the ghost in the machine; we know that there is something there, but as beginner communicators with the other kingdoms, we cannot trace out the wiring diagrams without a great deal of practice and help from experts. The experts, of course, are the devas.
Our connection with this mysterious evolving stream of consciousnesses allows us to enter into relationship with many other dimensions and levels of awareness because it so permeates them all. As we are a bridge between Spirit and Matter for sub-human kingdoms (our younger brothers and sisters), the devic evolution is our bridge to a greater understanding of more and higher evolutions than we can presently conceive of.
One could say that all Earth kingdoms interrelate as they do because of the work of the devic kingdom! But that is how we perceive it. This is neither necessarily true nor complete. That is the magic and wonder of spiritual expansions of consciousness. They lead ever inward in a never-ending spiral of existence and discovery.
