THE RELEASEMENT MASS/SAMADHI MASS FOR THE NEW HUMANITY: EUCHARIST RE-IMAGINED

A MASS FOR THE NEW HUMANITY: THE RELEASEMENT MASS

A MEDITATIVE, DEEP, UPLIFTING EXPERIENCE OF DIRECT GOD-UNION, AN OPEN TABLE TO WHICH ALL ARE WELCOME

The Releasement Mass is an adaptation of several liturgies with original material by Bryan Rice, but is unique unto itself. This Mass was inspired by the Gnostic Liturgy of Peace and by spiritual teachers such as Tau Malachi, Paramahansa Yogananda, Rosamonde Miller, and Patricia Jepsen Chuse. This Mass is an empowerment and mix of shamanism, A Course in Miracles, Non-dual Gnosticism, and elements of dance that are part of the Cosmic Mass created by Matthew Fox. Come and be uplifted and freed from compulsions and desires that cause suffering and neurosis. Experience something you have never given yourself permission to take part in before. This Mass transcends any one tradition and is a partaking in the Light and Life Force of the Radiant Christ Presence. It is not a sacrifice in any way. It is a remembrance of our True Nature and Oneness in the Divine.

SAMADHI OF THE BODY AND BLOOD: A MASS FOR THE NEW HUMANITY
All are invited to this “Open Table Fellowship”. All you need do is BYOBW: “BRING YOUR OWN BREAD” and “WINE”.The purpose of this Mass is to eradicate all mortal longings and to Transfigure sense desire energy into a sacred yearning for the divine substance and Cosmic Meal of immortal outpouring. This Mass is NOT a sacrificial remembrance, but a remembrance of “who we truly are in the Fullness of Heaven”. All of you have the I AM Divine presence of Christ Consciousness in you. You can consecrate bread and wine together with the priest by your innate divinity. This consecration is a non-local, remote experience not bound to one space-time location. We do this in thanksgiving for the life of Jeshua Messiah, who revealed the path of Enlightenment, the “Way” to the Supernal Parents, the goal of this Eucharist is to gain flashes of insight and illumination, to help further the cause of Awakening from sleep and ignorance, unconsciousness, and delusion (maya). Contained within this Yoga (Divine Union/Bridal Chamber) is a Releasement (Apolytrosis/ Deliverance) of any and all forms of darkness and oppressive spiritual forces, as the Radiant Light of the +Father and +Mother God, the +Holy Androgynous-One-God, penetrate the darkness with Supernal Light from the Heavenly Abode. In this Eucharist Yoga Feast, there is a true exchange of Primal Life Force energy transmitted through Pure, transformative God-Consciousness. In the receiving of the divinized gifts of bread and wine, one can experience the Bliss of the Ultimate Reality, strength to endure, power to overcome, and get a glimpse of The Fiery Light-Transmission, Zion Illumination, or Samadhi Yoga (UNION) with God, by realizing the Love of God in the intimate quarters of what mystics of the past called the Bridal Chamber, and your true nature through Self-Realization. Above all, we take part to evolve and accelerate in Consciousness. You ARE the CHRIST. 

THOUGHTS FROM BRYAN RICE

THE ONE AND ONLY RULE: That you consider yourself to be a conduit for the Divine Source of All That is, and thereby, have within you, the very nucleus of the God-Presence/Spark – the Vital Life Force of God which is the Unified Principle and circuitry through which the “BODY AND BLOOD” of the Father-Mother flows and thereby CAN consecrate the Bread and Wine when you are in alignment or At-One-Ment with that very God-Power. Together in the meditative Mass audio, you co-consecrate the elements. What you believe happens or doesn’t happen during the celebration of the Eucharist is of no consequence, just that it is a Rite of Empowerment, Fellowship, Thanksgiving, and Rejuvination.

What I suggest as mere food for thought (no pun intended) is that the “Essence” of the elements beyond the atomic and even beyond the quantum level of existence, does in fact become the “Fiery Desire-Light-Energy” and the Messianic Consciousness Substance that serves fit to remind us of who we are. THE GODSELF, THE CHRIST. THE BUDDHA. KRISHNA CONSCIOUSNESS (not the little ego self-definitions we invent). This Essence that already exists within us, rises and falls, seemingly dying (though only ever hiding) then experiences the Resurrection-Power through God-Union. This unitive aspect of our Essence with that of God-Being/GodSelf/Christ-Self is the meaning of this Mass. We merge with the divine in the intimate holy of holies and turn away from the outer, exterior, sense identified habits, to be One with the O’ All Maker.

THE ONE AND ONLY THING YOU NEED DO: “BYOBW”: “Bring Your Own Bread and Wine” – Everything else is to be taken as a grain of salt. What speaks to you, you take with you, what doesn’t, you simply let what is happening pass gently by, coming, then going.

Above all, we are here to evolve and accelerate in Consciousness and give birth to the “new Humanity” and “New Earth”.

WHAT IS THE EUCHARIST? : SOMETHING DIFFERENT TO PONDER

* ON A METAPHYSICAL/ONTOLOGICAL LEVEL:

A DIRECT, INTIMATE, PERSONAL ENCOUNTER WITH the Quaternity through the VEHICLE OF A SACRED FELLOWSHIP MEAL, (OPEN TABLE FELLOWSHIP). DIVINE REALIZATION through a SACRED RITE of THE OUTPOURING OF DIVINE ENERGY, THE TRANSMISSION OF THE FOUR SACRED ELEMENTS, of EARTH, WATER, AIR, and FIRE (LIGHT), invoked from its state of PURE PRESENCE, THE REALM OF POSSIBILITIES, and POTENTIA and then MADE TO MANIFEST as a FIERY INTELLIGENT ACTUALITY – an ANDROGYNOUS HOLY FIRE and LIGHT that gives each recipient a FLASH OF GNOSIS or A TASTE of DIVINE ILLUMINATION = THE CHRIST (LIGHT) PRESENCE. THE DESCENT OF THE CHRIST FROM THE MYSTICAL REALM TO PHYSICAL – MADE MANIFEST IN INDIVIDUALS THROUGH THEIR BELIEF In SHARING and passing of the gifts from one to another (rather than the priest giving the Eucharist to every one – so that there may be no grovelers, or opportunity for guru worship, rather – ) and in proclaiming to each person in succession, that “This is my body, given for you” and “This is my Blood (Life Force), take and drink” – that there is a Principle of the Real Presence of Christ’s Mystical Body and Blood (Life Force), being passed IN and THROUGH each person, beginning with the Priest who invoked the Holy Presence of the Quaternity, consecrated the gifts, and TRANSMITTED the MYSTICAL PRESENCE, INITIATING the chain of SELF-OFFERINGS in a manner reflective of Christ (who began the process), each person in fellowship, one to another outwardly proclaiming what becomes an inward reality, that IN CHRIST, THEY ARE ALL ONE, and that part of each person, is inwardly taken into the next, completing the chain, by returning any unconsumed part of the elements to the Priest.

The Presence of the Holy Name, made manifest through the Christ and Holy Spirit, once invoked and either commanded or made to manifest in the original yet-to-be shared oblation, by the Priest’s best intention, will create a chain reaction – a CONNECTING UNITIVE PRINCIPLE at work by the motion and movement of the Holy Spirit. GOD enters each person THROUGH THE MYSTICAL PRESENCE OF CHRIST in and through the congregation DUE TO this EXERCISE OF FAITH. CHRIST MANIFESTS in those present, but not specifically through any atomic change in the elements themselves. This MYSTICAL PRESENCE is INTENSIFIED in the PRESENCE OF OTHERS, in silence and with candles and incense, and SPARKS A NEWNESS OF REGENERATION (“I am the bread of life”) in all those who humbly share in the COMMEMORATIVE MEAL of REDEMPTIVE LIGHT and the SUBSTANCE/PRESENCE of LIFE ETERNAL .

* PURPOSES OF THE MESSIANIC BANQUET/BRIDAL CHAMBER

1. THANKSGIVING, for Yeshua Messiah laying down his life as a free act of love for his fellow humans, (not out of a God-planned sacrifice for atonement).

2. TO COMMEMORATE the LIFE, and MINISTRY of Yeshua/ the Christos (and the Magdala), and to SHARE in the WORD (Logos)

3. FELLOWSHIP; meals are sacred and bring people together, to commune–i–cate with fellow brethren.

4. TO NOURISH

5. UNITE: Unitive Purpose; God-Union: Communion – meaning to be in UNION “WITH” the Quaternity (Father, Mother Sophia, Son, Daughter Sophia); This UNION or BRIDAL CHAMBER is experienced on the level of BODY, SOUL, MIND, SPIRIT; YOGA with the CHRISTOS/SOPHIA and FATHER-MOTHER GOD.

6. TO INVOKE, MANIFEST, and RECOGNIZE the I AM PRESENCE in oneself and fellow neighbors, and be WITNESSES of/give TESTIMONY to The DIVINE AGENT of God, who in the great Quaternity, Father, Mother, Son, Daughter, ACT through well-intentioned devotees, to MANIFEST, the PRIMAL FOOD OF CREATION, through multi-dimensional, METAPHYSICAL & MYSTICAL MEANS. The PRIMAL FOOD of bread and wine outwardly REPRESENT inward (soul-bound) reality. Wine remains wine, bread remains bread, but the gifts are FIRE and LIGHT that cause the inner atmosphere of a recipient to BLOOM, BLOSSOM, and FLOWER.

7. To ESTABLISH a universal means by which to invoke the Holy Name of God and the Christos that humanity could experience the TRANSCENDENT (Father) and IMMANENT (Divine Mother) aspects of God beyond mere abstractions of the mind. WORD BECOMES FLESH in that the divine in its state of PURE POTENTIAL, through the INTENTIONS of a holy vessel becomes an ACTUALITY. As Yeshua Ben Joseph says in “The Way of Mastery”, “WHAT YOU DECREE IS”.

8. Not so much for the holy oblation or offering of bread and wine to themselves be divinized or to have their properties changed, but through our PARTAKING in them, we ASSUME the NATURE of the CHRISTOS-SOPHIA, synthesized through their syzygy – the one receiving the elements becomes the ESSENCE of GOD expressed in the CICUITRY of GOD’s blood that flows through all existing creatures ever made in the Angrogyny’s image, and has the LIFE FORCE OF not only the Christos, but The Quaternity activated in the frail, human form.

9. TO INITIATE a CHANGE or RAISING OF CONSCIOUSNESS in a congregation, fellowship, or an individual; to give someone an experience of GNOSIS, intimate divine knowing, or a flash of INSIGHT OR ILLUMINATION for the purposes of EVOLUTION and the EMERGENCE of a NEW EARTH and NEW HUMANITY.

10. To TRANSFIGURE the recipient of the Holy Eucharist with the LIGHT-PRESENCE of Christos, the CONTINUUM OF LIGHT ETERNAL, in the SUPERNAL ABODE.

11. To REDEEM; not in the sense of atonement or absolution from sins, but a STRENGTHENING and GUARDIANSHIP of the soul from IGNORANCE and FORCES OF DARKNESS.

12. To INITIATE the CHRIST-FLAME in the hearts of those who receive.

13. To ATTAIN ETERNAL LIFE.

* NOTE ABOUT BLOOD OF GOD/THE TRUE CIRCUITRY

The Father’s blood is the Blood of Christ, a new circuitry manifest by the Jesus Mind, the Cosmic Christ Consciousness, the calibration of all avatars and ascended masters. As we find people relating to one another as one family, nations will know peace and will understand the lifeblood that runs through all and honor it. This “blood” that constitutes the circuitry of the new body or new world will be the Law unto itself and the connecting presence with all people, to a dawn of new cosmic identity.

ENLIGHTENMENT AND ILLUMINATION

This entry was originally posted in the blog Holy Fire by Brother Bryan in August 2009.

As I say in the the subject of this blog, Enlightenment (an inner experience of the Kingdom of God or His Ecstatic Love) and Illumination are not things that can be achieved or earned by following all the rules. Don’t get me wrong, having boundaries is a necessary part of the process of healthy development of one’s sense of self. But rigidly adhering to them, and priding one’s self for doing so, won’t get you that taste of Heaven’s Banquet any more or any quicker than the person who radiates joy, acceptance, and peace. Not even quicker than someone who acts compulsively, irrationally, or impulsively, in many cases rejecting the Love and Power of God’s grace. Father Richard Rohr, OFM has spoken about what he calls “the performance principle”. In addition to refuting the importance many people place on being part of an “in group” or the “chosen religion”, what he calls “tribal religion”, he says that people come to the experience of God’s mercy and love by doing it wrong, by a “spirituality of imperfection.” Don’t misread this; he doesn’t say sin freely and be a heathen. He just honestly admits, including himself in the reality he speaks of, that this is the pattern. Of being lost then found. The parable of the prodigal son is very significant to the pattern of behavior and complacency we have towards God the Father’s hopes for us and how he welcomes us with open arms when we go astray and choose to return.What I am driving towards, is a sort of surrendured stance, a definite kind of humility. Enlightenment and Illumination are terms that most Christians don’t use freely or regularly. Gnostic Christianity does along with other esoteric based religions. God is light in addition to all other aspects we are told about. Having experiences of light or even seeing apparitions don’t make you an Enlightened person who is automatically initiated into the Kingdom of God. Such experiences may preceed a series of mystical experiences, that I can attest to. But for me or any one else, other than maybe Jesus, Buddha, Gandhi, and Lao-Tzu if they were here on earth today, to say “I am enlightened” and to proclaim it as an absolute state of mind that they exist in apart from others, is border line heresy and a claim made by an inflated ego. I have been influenced by German spiritual teacher Eckhart Tolle. He says that at the age of 29, he had an enlightening experience that changed his life. If I have heard him correctly, he never has said or written that he is in an “enlightened state” nor in a “privileged state of consciousness” that is somehow superior to the masses of ignorant people that walk the planet sleepwalking so to speak. He is grounded. He actually talks about what Jesus made clear to his those who desired to follow him, that they would have to pick up their crosses and walk the same journey as he did, maybe not to martyrdom, but to powerlessness and surrender to the Absolute Love and Will of God. Rohr and other more progressive Catholics have spoke of experiencing The Christ-Self within or the Buddha nature. In doing so, they speak of a state of Awake, Alert, Sober, Entrainment of Mind and Heart. Jesus, most radically, connected His earthly body in the experiences or encounters with God, thereby uniting the human and the divine in a way that NO OTHER SPIRITUAL TEACHER ever has. Jesus took an established pattern in nature, of life, death, and rebirth (resurrection) and turned the tables on it. In Catholic circles you hear about the Paschal Mystery, “Christ has died, Christ has risen, Christ will come again.” In defense of those who believe in the Real Presence of Christ in the Eucharist, and to those who are curious about this reality, the experience of Illumination or Enlightenment is found in the encounter and eating of the Divine Substance, not just taking place in a corporal nature, but in a light filled mystical occurrence, whether through the gift of tears, intense, deep peace, or unspeakable ecstasy and joy. These emotions are not experienced at the expense of a Christ who is crucified over and over in a cannibalistic way, but rather through the vehicle of his risen glorified body – one that serves as a promise for us in the resurrection. In my seminary training as a student of Christian gnosticism, I was told that the “Archons” or Fallen Demonic Intelligences created as the result of a cosmic tragedy (the birth of a light being who became a lesser god, than the Ineffable, Incorruptible Father-Mother) feed off of the sacrifice of the Mass and get people who consume Christ’s Body and Blood to experience “false enlightenment” so that they will remain addicted to the sacrament and ignorant, the only sin in gnostic theology. I don’t commit myself to eating and drinking from a corpse. The sacred meal is much more than that, both a thanksgiving/remembrance of the very life Christ lived in this world and the radiance of Light he brought to those in darkness or illusion (both words I chose to substitute for sin).In summary, with the exception of Roman Catholics who exclude those not of their denomination from receiving the Eucharist, even if a person whole-heartedly believes in transubstantiation and humbly wants to receive the Elements, the gift of Christ’s Real Presence is freely given, not only through the Eucharist or Holy Communion, but in fire and spirit longing to be incarnate or impregnated in everyone. Regularly giving thanks/remembrance and partaking in the foretaste of Heaven’s Banquet will bring Divine Light to you and continually transform you, to allow God to reveal Himself/Herself to you with an Intensity no human can replicate by their own doing. Illumination can happen in every experience of the Eucharist, even if you see it as a symbol of Christ’s love and mercy (God is not limited by human restrictions or metaphors or lack of metaphors). Enlightenment, or the state of grace, or the inner condition of the Kingdom of God, I must confess comes and goes. It’s like losing it then finding it again. The minute we think we have it all, it dissipates. Don’t misunderstand me, God is not a tease. But He/She gives us just what we need as much as we need it, almost careful not to spoil the surprise granted to those who seek Him/Her in this world and the next. As an ascended master who appeared to a man who now is a well known teacher of A COURSE IN MIRACLES said, “heaven is like the perfect orgasm that never stops.” I must conclude that though I believe celibacy should be a choice, not a mandate, those who offer up their sexuality in exchange for union with God in the strictest sense can still know what that feeling is like, for there is no marrying in Heaven. This is not a commentary or a chance to provoke debate about mandatory celibacy for vowed religious. I’m just saying, if we “walk the walk” not just “talk the talk” we all are in for a truly ineffable experience. Alleluia!!!
