The Matrix of Universal Love

We come to the subject of matrices. Just as Mater signifies Matter and the substance of the creation in the formed state, so do matrices, the molds of creation, reproduce in the world of Matter-form the designs impressed upon them by their creator man. The matrix of love is the matrix God has placed as the foundation of Cosmos and all that is contained therein. If man would derive the intended benefit from this original matrix, he must identify with the pulsations of love in nature and re-attune the frequency of his consciousness in order to extract from the universe the essence of the Lord’s Spirit that is locked in the matrix of love.

“Though I understand all mysteries and all knowledge,” wrote Saint Paul to the church at Corinth, “and have not charity [love], I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal… Charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,” <1> he observed. But the proud talkers in every age say, “See me, here am I,” without ever becoming instruments for the magnificent gifts of love which God has placed in nature, in Matter, and, I might add, in man.

Matrices are important. Nowhere is this more evident than in mass production, where the demands are such that out of an original mold an assembly line of endless articles must be manufactured–all exactly alike. Now there are matrices of thought and there are matrices of feeling. Those which are perfect are from Above; those which are imperfect are from below. The latter are mass-produced by mankind out of the almost infinite variety of concepts, precepts, and diverse feelings which they hold about persons, places, conditions, and things. The effect of these matrices upon his life, his environment, and his future is seldom fully realized by man.

Perhaps it would be clearer for some if I were to refer to matrices as patterns, for this is exactly what they are. Patterns that are pure may be defined as those which faithfully duplicate the blueprint of some aspect of the creation; these originate in the Mind of God and are re-created in the consciousness of the undefiled among His children. Patterns that are impure are defined as those which do not faithfully reproduce the archetypes of the Creator’s thought; these originate in minds unperfected by the Mind which was in Christ Jesus. <2>  It can be said that some of each–the pure and the impure–occupy the consciousness of unascended man…

Now there are patterns in the subconscious as well as the conscious mind of man just as there are ideas both latent and active in the Universal Mind. Many ideas of which man is momentarily or fragmentary conscious descend into the realm of the subconscious, where, forgotten, they lie as dormant seeds until the release of energy into the mold produces for good or for ill after its kind.

It is a strange mystery, the mystery of Life. Akin to the mystery of Love, it is not understood by the average man or woman, who have not beheld either the purpose of Life or the purpose of Love. Let us consider, then, that the plan of Universal Love, in conveying the mystery of Life to each individual ideation of God, is to enable the individual to respond of his own accord to the vibratory qualities of love found in the first magnificent gift of God–the only begotten Son, the Universal Christ.

Yet the Universal Christ is not understood until it becomes personified in one such as the Lord Jesus. To some the universal aspect of the Christ seems remote and impersonal because they find it easier to identify with the embodiment of a principle than with the principle itself–with a person than with a pattern; for this they can relate to their own personality. In reality, this lack of understanding, this limited perspective, prevents them from seeing the universal nature of the man Jesus–the manifestation of the Universal Christ. For he who perfectly embodies the universal and impersonal God becomes that which he is the embodiment of.

Therefore, if we have eyes to see and ears to hear, if we have the pure patterns already fixed in mind and heart, we will find in Jesus not only the personal Christ but also the impersonal God–not only the individual Christ but also the universal image of the Son of God. Seeing only the personal, man is deprived of the universal; thus he can know God only in part until he corrects his vision and his logic with perfected matrices. The personal image, although more relevant to the evolving monad at a certain stage of soul development, can express but a portion of the universal image…

As he enters into the realization of his creative potential, man must develop the sense of limitless being, the sense of the abundant Life. He must replace the treacherous spirit of competition, which seized the heart of Cain and still dominates the mass consciousness, with the all-pervading sense of the abundant Love. Love has created him; he is made in the image of Love. Love will sustain him; Love will guide him every step of the way; Love will produce in him the regeneration of the Christ; and all of Heaven will bow to the Light within him because he has enthroned the Christ within his heart and developed an inner rapport with the universal Presence of Love

Is this not the loveliest valentine that any man or woman could receive–the realization that the flame within his heart is one with the Flame in the Heart of God; that his feelings are regenerating the patterns of the Ancient of Days; that his mind, imbued with the matrices of the Christ, is thinking the thoughts that beat in rhythm with the Heart of Universal Love, the Mind of Universal Love, and the Being of Universal Love!
