Rev. Mary Mondello – “from my book – The Vision of Mary”
AVALON Ministry A Universal Ministry
I can remember the heated debates in my own science classes in Jr High and High school, during the 1970’s, when the “” and “evolution” chapters came up in our little science books. These debates have been echoed through schools and homes since the theory was born.
I remember being perplexed why everyone else didn’t get it as I did. I didn’t ponder too much on the matter, I just made the easy comments to my class, and even to my Primitive Baptist father, “Isn’t evolution just “how God did it?”
As my own spiritual evolution began, during the close of 2005 (the end of an era), my ego, my soul was stripped to nothing, I felt naked, like an infant crying out for my mother. I saw the struggle of my life, my soul as it came sobbing around the carousel I got on by mistake. Everything I had done in my “past” lives had been repeating itself, following the same patterns, in different scenarios, different synonyms, different jobs, even different marriages in even more different ways over and over again. I realized that turning on the light in the room of enlightenment was not enough, I had to go in and experience the light for myself; not just see what the angels were doing, but I was being called to help them.
At first I thought they were calling me, but I realized they were calling the elderly, the sick, the weary, the lost, the dying. I was “dying” in spirit because I was felt alone in Colorado with the rest of my family in Texas. I missed my large family holidays, I missed my mother, I missed my kids, and I missed not being there when my grandchildren were born. I was afraid that my father was going to be next, and he almost was. I lost 2 uncles and an aunt took a turn for the worse, and I began trying to find a way home.
I finally remembered that I am not in charge. I asked God to show me how it works! I returned to my remedy, music!! I used to listen to the radio all the time.... ALL OF THE TIME! I sang, and when I sang, whether to other people or to myself - and I do the same today - I feel the words, I feel the meanings, I put myself in the lyrics and I see how they relate to me, so that I AM the muse. I began to ask God to speak to me as I meditated with either the bible, or some other spiritual work, and let the stereo surround me with the sway of the music. I could close my eyes and feel the primitive beat underlying the modern rhythms, and then I saw the picture!! God had taken me back to the beginning, to feel how he did it. You must be able to feel the sentient spark that began each of us before you can begin to understand what kind of spark may have begun His universe.
This is the vision that He showed me of the beginning of my ancient soul, my long-suffering spirit, which is no different from yours, or anybody else’s. The human spirit is the same; only time reveals what direction each spirit must move. That movement will determine the movement of another spirit, and another, and another, and when another gets in the way, the group either works together to turn, or they collide, causing more static, or ripples, or waves, or all depending on the force of the collision, or joining, or leaping, etc... If everyone is of the same mind, and all hearing the same rhythm, they will dance together, sway together, flow together, and then we as “one” spirit can then evolve as a whole, as a family, as a community, as a city, as a nation, as a world.
This is what God showed me...In the beginning, the first million years, was a deafening silence ringing out in a dark space.
The continuing silence continued the length of another million years expanding, filling, and screaming until - finally!! The soundless void exploded and there peaked out a small particle, like a hair, a piece of lint, or string.
As we know, dust and lint multiply’s and collects. So these particles began to collect, multiply and then pile up, the space was filling again.
As the particles continued to expand and multiply, they begin to shift, and move causing a spark of awareness, like negative & positive ‘ions, thus causing the particles to move in rhythm in a primitive type of dance; first making a circular motion, back and forth; giving us a rocking movement carrying all the pieces back and forth until eventually they liquefy and then we eventually had the gentle swaying of the tide coming in and then back out, and then leaving small particles that crystallized into sand.
The spark brought about a type of spirit, a soul or a being - or – understanding, or order, and organization in the growing particles.
They began to dance, and clump – energy was with them now – they acquired rhythm, and the purpose was set; or thought, or plan, blueprint – intention was born. If there is a plan, there must be a planner! Enter, God, or the Creator, or the Great Spirit, all of which must be – Energy – now with them!
Because the spark had happened upon this clump of rotating, dancing particles, eventually, the sky separated from the waters, water attracts the sun - or maybe reflected nothing into nothingness and the reflection became animated, and the rotating continued – and the water had separated so the reflection grew and grew, and reflected off of the water into – land, and then began orbiting in its own beginning, its own dance, and soul, and there was no moisture, and “God said, let there be light”.
The accumulated sparks reflected off of the waters into space and comes back around, and then another light has formed. “God called the light day, and the darkness he called night, and the evening and the morning were the first day”.
A million years to us is no more than a day to God, so when he says “the morning and the evening were the first day”, he doesn’t mean twenty four hours; He means that the time it took to create the land, or earth, under the reflection of the culmination of His energy in the sun, and then when it was all finally in place, and working properly, that was the “symbolic” first day.
Now, as the particles were settling, and the sea was churning, and stirring, the spirits in heaven were warring, and the sun was beginning to light up the day; and the spheres were forming the earth and her atmosphere, and they were separating from the heavens and became a firm fixture with the stars, and the planets in the galaxy. “And God made the firmament and divided the waters which were under the firmament from the waters above the firmament, and it was so; and he called the firmament heaven. And evening and morning were the second day.”
And as this small, newborn sun was beginning to grow, and as the gentle rocking of the tide swayed, particles were settling, turning to sediment, pushing out in all directions, forming peaks on all “four corners” of the deep. So the dry land appeared as the sun warmed the atmosphere, and the sea dried away to show the rocks and sediment that had formed from the gentle back and forth rhythm of the tide from the slow orbit of the small string like “dust” particles which appeared out of the silence of space over time, so “forethought” reached out in screaming silence for the vision formed in her mind on that first long lonely day.
At the conclusion of the explosion, one small, lonely ion or particle appears and begins to move, throwing the spirit of his arm out gliding ahead. Startled by the movement, he throws out his other arm to balance himself, and the ying and yang, or positive and negative are born. Out of this back and forth kind of love song of ying and yang dance, they all gathered together and formed earth and water. And with the marriage of these two, life began to evolve, grass, herbs, seeds, trees, harvest, paradise. “God said, let the earth bring forth grass, seed, fruit & trees after his kind, and it was so.. The evening and the morning were the third day.”
This was the end of the vision. I now remembered that the bible was written by men, hearing the “word” of God and trying to translate what “they” thought, or heard into their own thoughts and perceptions with the knowledge that was available to them at the time. This is not literal, it is symbolic. So God doesn’t snap his fingers, he works through nature, it takes maybe 7 million years, instead of 7 actual days, andis the summation of the big picture of what happened, because before man or Adam, or the first sentient man became aware, he had no idea about time or space or heavens. Scientists, historians and paleontologists have found that the very first “tools” of man were not weapons of war, but instead items like combs, jewelry, personal hygiene, and precious things. So that tells me that we gained our souls because we began to groom and care for our young, and ourselves. That spark that made us these intelligent souls we are now, came from love and caring.
From caring for each other came gathering, feeding, clothing, sharing, mating, and birthing. Then more and more, then there were groups of families, and they again were at a new millennium and needed to change, or evolve to make things easier for the bigger groups of people that had been birthed, so they began to learn about the plants they were eating, they took them apart and found the seeds, or experimented until they acquired the fruit or vegetable they were trying to recreate.
At this time there were more than one species of “man” on earth, however, God only considered one of these people to be the chosen ones, and He tells them over and over again NOT to take the daughters of the other children to be wives (or husbands for that matter); according to Jewish teachings which we incorporated into Christianity in our King James bible. So, obviously, we slept with the daughters of men. Long hard ancient research has led me to believe that when God spoke to the “chosen”, the whole world heard Him, and they all thought He was talking to them. Some of them perceived the voice as the voices of ancestors, some as the voices of the kings and pharaohs who built the earth they knew, some heard the voice of fore fathers and mothers of their cities, states, countries, communities, and so on, and so on, those who have ears to hear, You know the rest...
Interestingly enough scientists are trying to find the connection between our known ancestors and how the Neanderthal man might still be found in some genetics today...well, there ya go. They wondered?! Well, obviously, we slept with female Neanderthal’s and probably gave birth to distorted “giants and monsters”, and the likes of Loke’s daughter Nephele, or Helle who was the keeper of the dead, and no one wanted to marry her. (Hmmm....this also sounds a little bit like Satan and the children of the Nephellyms, or something like that – don’t you think?)
And those species who didn’t yet “know God”, who lived by their instincts, and were “pagan” (which just simply means “country” or “natural”), were just telling us their handed down stories in the only way they knew how to relate them, like fairy tales, sagas, and legends. Don’t you realize that they are all based on true events, and they told us in the words they knew? They “didn’t know any better” as my Mommy (my Grand Mother) would have said. They told their stories the way they understood them, the only way they knew how to interpret the feelings that went with the stories handed down. Joseph Campbell said “we all have a fairy tale of ourselves in our head” (I know I do).
In case you are still wearing your “holy blinders” check around, many of the Scandinavian Saga’s and other legends (of which many of our children’s fairytales actually were derived from) are now in the process of being confirmed as actual fact. For instance, they have found real historical evidence of Eric the Red and proof of his travels outlined in the sagas, and historical evidence of the travels of his son, Leif Erickson.
Remember, the gods and goddesses here on earth were only called so by their loyal subjects, who thought that anyone who could build pyramids, forge water systems, and organize the people like they did had to be “as God”, or a god.... and then, later civilizations continued to remember these first builders of “mans” earth and paradises, and because they had a simple intellect, they simply worshipped those memories and legends and stories the way everyone else had done, they kept their blinders on, too, and never looked to see that they were only seeing a very small piece of a very big picture. “They didn’t know any better”!!
Perhaps they still felt the creator spirit that was still there, until people began to lovingly wrap their loved ones and prepare them for burial, and send them on to the afterlife, and to their ancestors, or whoever they “worshipped” or whosoever spirit they wanted to pattern their lives after.
None of this means that they were evil, or “wrong”, it just means they had not evolved enough, their carousel had not turned far enough around so they could see who had brought them, or they didn’t understand what they were looking at when they looked to see how they were turning, so they made up the most logical story, or in some cases they gave human traits to nature in order to understand how they worked.
This doesn’t mean that there were not evil horrible tragic rituals done in the names of these gods, because, remember, they were not gods, they were men, mistaken for gods because the people didn’t know any better; and they were sometimes evil, and some of the things they tried to understand were distorted, maybe, because they heard a message, but could not translate it properly. For example: if the high priests heard a message to give a long awaited child as a sacrifice into the service of God...and they didn’t really know God, they would think that meant the name of the “as god” that they had been taught to fear or worship. We know that would mean that God would call that child into his service or ministry. But, if you are picking up someone else’s message, and all you understand is “sacrifice” and “children”, what do you think you might do.
Of course, we may be misinterpreting the sacrifices they made, too. What if, all the bones, and remains of the children and poor victims at the top of pyramids and alters were not caused by murderous ritual, but what if, these were diseased, or dying children, or perhaps the bodies of some already dead, and this was how they sacrificed their children, or maybe this was a mass funeral after death, or at the time of dying in order for them to go to heaven. Or what if, heaven forbid, some of these children, or even adults thought that God wanted them to sacrifice themselves.... if they were not understanding the message, and they really believed that they were hearing the words of their god, and we know that these gods were just men who were esteemed to be as god, then maybe we can understand why they thought this was acceptable, and just grieve for those who misunderstood and know that their souls have learned now, and they realize what they did wrong, and do not want to lead any other souls astray...hence the fact these cults or religions have now disappeared.
They evolved!! Just like we did, from primitive beings whose DNA was mixed in the womb of mother earth with things like flowers, trees, vegetables, and all forms of animals; depending on the region of the earth they came from. Scientists have taken human DNA down to base “elements” which they found to include all of the items here. She joined with water, fire, earth and air by means of floods on the ancient earth mixing elements together, comets, and volcanoes spewing out the birth fluids ofto form new land and replenish the earth, then earthquakes, ripping apart the ground and changing the landscape, then winds, tornadoes, hurricanes and gales blowing. This was chaos...then out of chaos, the spark that created us, God breathed life into the spirit of Adam, first sentient beings on the earth, and through shear will their souls evolved to the vision of man that God had shown them. “Male and female He created”.
