Lateral Lattice principle came to light during a healing experience. It
echoes the principle of the Universe, reflected in man and humanity.
the universe, the entire vast maze of billions of galaxies is electrically
interconnected. None exist in isolation.
like manner is the vast 'sea' of billions of stars in each galaxy
interconnected with one another by the electric plasma currents that power
so, we too, are all interconnected with one-another by our humanity and the
spirit of life and love that we share, in which we find our power. In
civilization no one really exists alone. Or else we would not have a
civilization. We live with one-another, side by side,
and for one-another. On this lateral plain we gain the power to reach for
the sky. In this, we also find our universal unity with God, and the healing
it can bring to the human scene.
story is situated in Leipzig, Germany. It is a story about a principle for spiritual healing based on an actual experience and its wider significance reflected in intelligence and love meeting the human need. It is about truth, love, universal unity and support during a surgical operation,
and about the oneness of being and spiritual light. It is a story about mental technology and science.
I was tremendously grateful for those few days and hours that I had been privileged to share with Helen. I had gained a glimpse of a world I hadn't known to exist. I also had hoped all through this time that some of what I have learned and experienced, would remain with me. Being with her had started like a dream that seemed beautifully unrelated to this world. Now it came to light as an image of the real world with a bright promise.
When I awoke on this final morning that we would have together, the room was filled with sunshine. I saw her face gently illumined by the glow of the morning sun.
"You are an angel," I said to her.
"No I am a healer," she corrected me. "Learning to be in Love, means learning to heal." She suggested that the greatest damage that the distortion of Christianity has caused remains virtually unknown today. "It has taken away our capacity for healing. But now a healing has begun, a healing that inspires freedom, and power, and joy, a healing that gives more than we ever hoped for, and enables more than we ever thought possible. It even enables aspects of the sacrament that we never imagined to be a part of it, for its substance has been for too long hidden. And to celebrate this breaking out into a New World, I suggest we start the new day with a feast for the soul as it were. With this in mind I will give you permission to kiss my vulva, Peter, for one last time as a before-going-away celebration. You are free to go ahead if you so wish. I would wish this for you."
"Ah, I see, another type of sunshine to wake up to," I said, and I didn't just nod. I bowed. I got myself ready with a smile and started the extension of our morning kiss that had been so graciously offered."
Eventually Helen started to talk about healing again. She explained what she meant that the Christian church had blocked. She explained that the original Christian ideal of loving reflects the lateral expression of Love, born out of a deeply conscious being in Love with oneself and ones humanity that reflects God, and thereby ones being in Love with God.
"Jesus called himself both the son of man, and the Son of God," she said. "He lifted the entire interrelationship of man and the Universe onto its native laterally-interconnected platform. On this platform, healing became possible and became natural. Of course this threatened the imperial model of interrelationships, the vertical model, the model that Rome was built on. Consequently Rome fought the Christians. Eventually it was deemed wiser by the Romans to pervert Christianity, instead of fighting it, and to turn it into a tool for advancing imperial goals. This grand perversion was achieved by perverting the lateral model of Love into a vertical, hierarchical model. God was put up high into the infinite sky, humanity dragged down into the dirt of the Earth, and the Christ was put on a pedestal into the middle as an intermediary. This model was the model of empire. It served the empire well. In Rome it was extended into religion. The church, which was controlled by the oligarchs, was set up as the intermediary. The real sense of church was swallowed up."
Helen explained that the imperial vertical model totally disabled the healing process. She said, that this model still rules today. She said, "before Rome collapsed, a portion of the Roman Empire had split itself off and had become the Byzantine Empire that culturally dominated the Middle East and Russia, while on the European soil, the so-called Holy Roman Empire later emerged that continued the same perversion. The Renaissance did eventually defeat some of that perversion, but too much of it had remained."
"Why does this simple perversion destroy the process of healing?" I asked perplexed.
"I challenge you to answer this question yourself," she said and grinned. "Think of the difference between the vertical model that prevents healing, and the lateral model, where all exist on the same level side by side, which furnishes healing. Think of the birds of prey and their effect."
"You spoke of loving as a process of self-loving," I answered her cautiously. "You spoke of being in Love with our humanity by which we become laterally connected with one-another. You referred to this structure as a sphere of sovereign individuals, bound into one by universal Truth that envelops all in Love. But, what has this got to do with healing?"
"The imperial vertical model prevents healing from happening as it turns Truth upside down," said Helen. "It causes isolation."
She confided to me, that as a child, she had been taught to look up to God in prayer and pray for his love for her. She suggested to me that this type of hierarchical model for identifying oneself isolates one from ones native humanity and from one-another. "It isolates. It doesn't heal anything."
Moments later she described to me what it means to heal. She described it by relating her own experience in helping to heal a friend. Her friend had been in hospital undergoing extensive surgery. She told me that twenty minutes after the procedure had been scheduled to start, she had felt a sickening feeling. She felt a crisis was happening.
She told me that she had focused herself mentally onto that person's needs, who would be operated on. She said, she became sensitive to his needs. She said, that she had sensed a critical need for help. She said, that simultaneously with that feeling, images came to mind of the dimensions of Truth that she knew of our humanity. She told me that she saw images of a wide array of human hearts all connected horizontally with one-another, arrayed side by side in a lateral relationship. She said that she saw a vast network of hearts bound to each other in this lateral lattice of our human world, all sharing and supporting one-another physically -- each heart contributing some of its strength in support of the strength of her friend's heart
this moment of need during his operation. She said, that she sensed his need for some extra strength. She said that she saw images of a universal flow of support meeting her friend's need in a process that reflected the lateral flow of Love as the light of our universal humanity. She said that she clung to this image that appeared in the mind until the mental atmosphere became quiet again and a sense of peace returned. She also said, that this awareness of a crisis soon reasserted itself and brought the same response to her mind.
She told me that this process repeated itself two times, with quiet periods in between. At these three different occurrences, she had become aware of a critical need for help. She told me that her response had always been the same. It had emerged with equal clarity, unfolding with visual images of what she had understood to be universal Truth. The images that she saw were based on the science that she had explored in the years before, which she had frequently felt the efficacy of, in her own experiences.
Helen explained to me that this image of a lateral lattice of interconnected human hearts was not a dream image, conjured up in the intensity of the moment. She said it reflected a profound perception of a reality that she had long recognized and had learned to be in Love with as the reality of her being and that of the whole of the Universe.
