An illuminating excerpt from “The Lost Teachings of Atlantis” by Jon Peniel.
This book devotes an entire chapter to the history of the Children of the Law of One, from its Genesis prior to Atlantis, to the present, directly translated from the ancient texts, and my accounts of recent developments. But in the following segment, Noah just briefly describes the specific aspects of that history which led to the creation of the Children. You’ve heard Darwin, you’ve heard Genesis. Now you are about to hear another theory, the first one that made sense to me. And according to the Atlantean teachings, Genesis is actually a simplified, loose allegory, based on this.
“The historical records start with the premise that there is One Great Being (God/Universal Spirit) that is All things, including the Universe itself. It divides/multiplies within itself to create us, thus, our history begins with all of us (humans) essentially being part of, and One with God. The records describe us as being spiritual or ‘angelic’ beings, free to roam, create, and enjoy the Universe. The teachings go on to say that our beginnings on Earth, came in two steps – a ‘first wave’, and ‘second wave’ of ‘human’ (& semi-human) materialization into physical bodies on Earth. At the time, we had the ability to instantly alter our vibration, and instantly create anything we desired, with a mere thought. It was in this way that we ‘thought ourselves’ into matter, into material existence on Earth. Which began our fall from our angelic state, and Oneness with God.
You have probably heard of mythological beings such as the Minotaur, Centaur, Mermaid, etc.. The Minotaur, had a bull’s head and a human body, the Centaur, a human head and torso with a horse’s body. You may also have seen pictures of Egyptian ‘gods’ with animal heads and human bodies, or animal bodies and human heads (like the Sphinx). In the Pacific regions, ancient drawings and carvings of ‘bird headed’ humans can be found on both sides of the ocean. Why do you think so much of this exists? Many legends and myths have some foundation in fact, and this is no exception. The ancient teachings from Atlantis, reveal that such creatures did indeed exist, and that their origins were not what you might expect – they were the fallen angelic beings from the ‘first wave’ of materialization on Earth.”
“Fallen angels??? You mean like Lucifer?”
“Well, yes and no. You have a misconception of sorts. That is a personalized concept from the allegory. The first wave of materialization was a terrible mistake [Author’s note: this will be explained in greater detail in the history chapter]. The first wave beings materialized as partly human/partly animal creatures. This is why in the story of Lucifer, or the various creatures that were called ‘devils’ or demons or whatever, they appear as horned, cloven hoofed creatures with tails – the fact is, they were part goat. This is why goats have become associated with the devil also. But evil, is an entirely different matter. Think not that evil does not exist. But true evil, disguises itself, and points the finger at innocents.”
“So Lucifer was not evil?”
“Not initially. The stories you have heard have become terribly mixed up. Even the bible originally paints him as a great angel. But there was no ‘rebellion’ or defiance against the will of God until AFTER this fall, not prior to the fall as is often depicted. It was just a mistake at first. Try telling one person in the meeting hall a story, and ask him to repeat it quietly to the next, and the next person to the next, until it comes back to you. By the time you hear your original story, it will not even be recognizable. That is why our teaching methods are so stringent. We must keep the truth straight, and consistent, and this has been assured by our forebearers.
Getting back to the primary teaching today, there were more ‘fallen angels’ than Lucifer. And they took many different part animal forms. For ease of description we call the part human, part animal beings that fell into physical vibration or matter, during the ‘first wave’ of materialization, ‘humanimals’. As soon as the first wave beings materialized in their ‘humanimal’ bodies, they suffered a great ‘fall’ in vibration from their previous spiritual, angelic state of existence. They instantly experienced a near total loss of consciousness, awareness, and intelligence. In less than the twinkling of an eye, the consciousness that just moments before, had encompassed the entire Universe, and experienced Oneness with the Universal Spirit/God, was virtually gone. The new limited consciousness of these pitiful creatures, ‘trapped’ them on the physical plane of the Earth, where they had to live in ignorance, with their animal-like intelligence and awareness. They were suddenly isolated from Universal/God Consciousness, and trapped in the lonely anguish of ‘separate’ consciousness. This separate consciousness gave birth to a sort of separate free will, which was ignorantly used selfishly, rather than in harmony with the will of God. Ultimately, they would also be trapped in slavery. Evil is spawned by selfishness, but later, even greater degrees of evil came about (which we will discuss more later). Yet all selfishness and evil, has since mistakenly been blamed on these poor unfortunate ‘first waver humanimals’. To be sure, some had horns, and tails, and cloven hoofs – but they have been used as ‘scape goats’, and diversions, in order for others, including regular humans, to avoid taking personal responsibility for the real evil, the real devil, which is the selfishness living inside each human who maintains separate consciousness from the Oneness of God.”
Other novice monks in the class, including me, immediately responded with a flurry of questions.
“What do you mean?”
“How can this be?”
“How did it happen?”
“Slow down,” Noah said. “One question at a time please. All will be answered in time.
Remember, we were spirits only. Very ‘fine’, ‘high-frequency’ vibrational beings, with no experience in this physical realm. These humanimals came upon their terrible fate because of a rapid, uncontrolled slowing down of their vibrational frequencies, for purposes of materialization of their spiritual selves into the material plane of the Earth. It occurred in a way that cut them off from their normal consciousness, like changing the dials on a radio to an area of radio frequency that had nothing to receive. Their ‘internal radio’ of consciousness, was no longer ‘tuned in’ to God. It was a materialization that went too far, too deep, into the dense, slow vibrations of the physical plane. When the finer frequencies were ‘cut off’, they were left ‘cut off’ from God and the rest of spiritual creation, and thus the consciousness of the Oneness of the Universe – the consciousness of God – the Universal Spirit. This left them with only a ‘separate self consciousness’, that lost touch with ‘Oneness Consciousness’, or ‘Universal Consciousness’.
“Then why aren’t all of us still lost, and out of touch with God?”
“A couple of reasons. Some of us did not make this ‘fall’. Those who didn’t fall, were still in their angelic state, and watched all this happen to the first wavers. Our grand master [Author’s note: later known as Jesus in his last life on Earth], organized and led a rescue mission. With their great Love and compassion, many of the other angelic beings who had not ‘fallen’, decided to help the trapped first wavers, even at great risk of the same fate. They became what we call the ‘second wavers’.
The second wavers knew they could only help the first wavers, if they too, materialized in forms that would allow them to work on the lost souls (the humanimal creatures) in their own physical form and dimension. And the grand master and various angelic volunteers, knew that in order to do that, it would require lowering their own vibration, towards that of the physical plane, and subsequently lowering their consciousness to some extent. They knew this was dangerous, and that they had to be very careful how they did this, and be careful about how deeply they went into physical matter, or they too would become trapped in limited consciousness just as the humanimals were. Thus the ancient Atlantean teachings describe how this second wave, became the first consciously controlled thought projection, or materialization, of modern ‘human’ life on Earth (or at least they eventually became modern humans as they gradually solidified into the material plane from their spiritual ‘angelic’ state). The ape-like early human form was actually just eventually chosen by second wavers as the preferred type of physical vehicle to model themselves after, because it allowed for the greatest control and manipulation in the physical plane, that would be required to help the first wavers. That is why scientists cannot find the ‘missing link’ – because there simply is none. Because while evolutionary change certainly does exist, our present existence on Earth did not involve evolving for millions of years from apes.”
Again, if the above theory of creation that is offered by the ancient Atlantean teachings, is disagreeable to you – no “biggy”, that’s OK. There are all kinds of theories of creation, that people are VERY intense and pushy about. We aren’t.
Scientists are supposed to stay objective, and stick to proven facts, and if they can’t present absolutely proven facts, they are supposed to present their ideas as “theories”, and only as “theories”. Yet many alleged “scientists”, have sneakily insinuated, and taught the “theory” of evolution of humans from apes, as FACT, even when they have a huge gap, a huge “missing link” in their “theory”- they have not found a direct ancestral lineage of modern man, that connects the whole evolution of apes and “cave men” types of semi-ape, semi-humans. And on the flip side of the evolutionist theories, many religions have followers, and thus money and power at stake. Unlike both of those categories, we have nothing at stake, nothing to prove, nothing to lose or gain since we don’t make money or get power from the teachings we present. While we have personally viewed it as an historical, written record, you are welcome to “take them or leave them”. We really, really don’t care if you believe the concepts of history or creation presented in this book, or not. If it “rings the bell of truth” for you, fine. If it doesn’t, that’s OK too. We obviously can’t prove ancient history, nor do we feel it is important. It isn’t important. We really, truly, don’t care about any of those intellectual ideas, theories, or concepts. We DO care about the reality of human life and suffering, NOW. The things that really impact everyone’s lives on Earth. So what we want, and what we really care about, is simply for everyone to be kind, caring, compassionate, and harmless. Is it really too much to ask even if you believe you are descended from an ape? Is it really too much to ask if you believe God created you out of Adam’s rib? Who cares? We don’t think it’s too much to ask. Regardless of what you believe, don’t believe, or have faith in, or don’t have faith in. The same goes for everything else you read in this book – who cares? Be nice. Let’s all be real caring friends and family.
The Creation of The Children of the Law of One.
Before Noah could catch his breath, I began my eager questioning again, “So the second wave of materialization began as a ‘rescue’ operation of sorts – to save the ‘humanimal’ beings who ‘fell’ in the first wave? Please tell me more about who organized this, and how could they do anything about it?”
“Who, we will discuss later. Please just let me finish relating this part of the
In order to accomplish this ‘rescue’ as you called it, two things had to be done. One, methods had to be devised that would help the humanimals REGAIN their spiritual consciousness and awareness of Oneness with the Universal Spirit; and two, methods had to be devised for the second wavers to MAINTAIN their spiritual consciousness and awareness of Oneness with the Universal Spirit. To both these ends, second wave beings founded the spiritual path of the Children of the Law of One, and created the methods and teachings that are still in use, and valid, today.
Thus, the spiritual order of the Children of the Law of One was founded with a very specific and unique purpose. And while this order included aspects of what would later become numerous ‘religions’, the Children of the Law of One was unlike any other religion that would ever appear on Earth. And remains so. It was NOT created to fill a need in people’s hearts and minds, NOR to strike fear into their hearts, NOR to worship anyone or anything, NOR to answer the spiritual questions that arose in the spiritually ignorant masses, NOR to control those masses. It was created before all those issues even existed.”
“So the Children are not really a religion in a sense?”
“No. By many modern definitions, it could be considered such. But again, the whole point of the Children’s materialization was to rescue their ‘trapped’ kin, by returning the first wavers to their angelic state of existence and awareness (Universal Consciousness). Thus the whole point of the Children’s spiritual path, was to be able to enter the material plane so they could help the first wavers, while maintaining their own spiritual consciousness and angelic state, so they wouldn’t get trapped also. If I may continue.
As the second wave rescue mission gradually descended into materiality and human form, some of them, lured by selfish desires, turned away from the Children’s spiritual path. They then lost spiritual awareness, and separated from Oneness with God. Ultimately, this division created two ‘religious’ or ‘philosophical’ groups in Atlantis with very different purposes and ‘politics’ – the Sons of Belial and the Children of the Law of One.
The Sons of Belial mimicked the Children in many ways, even in the sense of being ‘spiritual’ or ‘religious’. But their ‘religious practices’ were mockeries of true spirituality – phony, empty, and self-serving. They would use ‘prayer’ and visualization to attain whatever they wanted, and they turned a blind eye to what the repercussions of getting what they wanted would have on others. Some popular present-day religions, are offspring of the Belialian religion. And then there are the secret societies that still practice their original ways.
In Atlantis, the most significant contention between the Children and the Belialians was over what to do about the humanimals. The humanimals were easily controlled by the powers of a second waver’s mind, and they could be made to do anything just through visualization. Since the Belialians had turned away from their awareness of Oneness with God in favor of selfishness, they wanted to use the ‘humanimals’ as ‘pet slaves’. The Children, however, still wanted to help return the humanimals to their higher state of consciousness. Thus the Children also became ‘activists’, and their goal as a group ‘movement’ was still to free their trapped kin, but now they also had to contend with other SECOND wavers who had ‘gone bad’.”
“So Noah, did the Children win out over the Belialians – there aren’t any humanimals walking the Earth any more, right? Were they all killed, or rescued?”
“I’ll answer that in a moment, but first let me say that even the best of the Children of the Law of One, eventually succumbed to some degree, to the separation from the Universal Spirit. But that is another story, which involves the allegory of Adam & Eve.
“Now, to answer your question, while part of the Children’s goal was eventually achieved (the humanimals were freed from their animal entanglement after the destruction of Atlantis), freedom from darkness and slavery has not been fully accomplished. The battle continues. As far as the first wavers go, reincarnated humanimals still walk the Earth in normal human bodies – you have seen them. If you are observant, you can see subtle animal traits, mannerisms, or facial appearances on many of the people of the world. But humanimals or not, the age old struggle between the Children and the Belialians – the struggle of freedom against slavery, still continues. These days slavery can be in many forms, traditional, economic, socio-political oppression, imprisonment, and mental programming. The world is basically populated by five groups, the Children, Belialians, reincarnated “lost soul” first and second wavers, and the enlightened. Most from both the first and second waves, are still separate in consciousness from the Universal Spirit.
That makes them easy prey for the Belialians, and they either become their pawns in one way or another, or their slaves in one way or another. [Author’s note – In previous editions of this book, the only description of Belialians was that of the old teachings. This left many people confused about who and what they were, and how they look in modern times. Belialians are not some kind of genetic creatures who have physically lived and survived for thousands of years. Like all of us, they have continued to reincarnate, and live in modern human bodies. But they are so evil, those of us who are sensitive to it can sense or feel that. This can sometimes even be physically or intuitively seen as being reptilian- like, or as the old teachings call it, “lizard-like”. But whether you see or sense this yourself, you can know them by their agenda. Lifetime after lifetime, they maintain their maniacal drive for power and agenda of slavery and domination. Many of them are the people who run the world. The upper echelon are the real power people pulling the strings behind the scenes. Like Initiate monks of the Children, the higher level Belialians are totally conscious and aware of who they are, and what they are doing. The middle and lower echelon are sometimes in the forefront, or in the public eye, functioning as political, military or business leaders who are apparently not being told what to do – yet they really are. Of course some leaders are just pawns, and not consciously aware of who they serve (and wouldn’t care anyway). Belialians are usually born to rich and powerful families who are already of the Belialian heritage, and their families train them and continue to pass on their tradition. They go to the best schools and join the “right” “special” fraternities and sororities. They are trained in the ways of using visualization and ritual to practice their dark magic. They always want more money and power. They want to maintain economic slavery and child labor slavery in the world, and even worse. They want a state of total monitoring and control of all people (and they have been making great strides in this). They will use physical force to dominate and control if necessary, but mental programming through education, media, peer pressure, or other means, has been extremely successful – and parents continue to pass their own programming on to their children also. Examine world history and you see these struggles continuing through time – entire groups of evil oppressors trying to enslave. We have continued to fight them, and they continue to fight us.
Just as many of the scientific advances have come from reincarnated Atlantean scientists, so too have those with thirst for power and control at any cost, come from reincarnated Belialians. They continue to develop more sophisticated ways to keep people under their control. So how do you identify them? Again, you can feel it, and sometimes see it when you look into their eyes. But anyone whose agenda is control of others, is either Belialian, or one of their pawns. They care only about themselves and would be willing to harm anyone or even everyone on the planet if it helps them get more power – and they can do this all with a big smile and warm handshake (which many people “buy” into as being a “nice” person). Ask yourself if this could be true, and feel the response from your inner voice.] Noah continues:
So our ‘religion’, and work, continues on. And now, because of the time and situation, you [he pointed at me!], will soon be publicly revealing the teachings of the Children, and heralding the coming spiritual changes.
Remember, because of the unique nature and purity of the Atlantean Children’s spiritual way, it is as valuable today as it was then. Their teachings and methods can help anyone return to the Universal Spirit, achieve enlightenment, and live in harmony with Universal Law & Universal Will.”
“Thank you Noah.”
“It was my honor to help you.” And with that, he bowed and kissed my hand with the feeling of love and respect that one might only expect to see offered to his teacher, or the head of the order. It was rather shocking to me, because I felt I wasn’t worthy of it, didn’t deserve it, and that it wasn’t appropriate for someone of my humble station. But he was honoring who I was inside, which at the time, I didn’t really see in myself (even though my ego thought it did). Nevertheless, it was there, just waiting to manifest. [Author’s note: Now, as I deal with my students and others, I also see who they really are inside – their potential – and support that. We relate to that as well as their present level of consciousness. To reinforce and strengthen the Inner Being, while attacking and starving the selfish separate self, is our constant function and duty]. Then Noah put his hands together and made a gesture of spiritual respect to the other novice monks in the chamber, and crawled off through the little door.
