These metaphysical musings extend from Man’s Connection to The World Tree and Hyperborean Frugivores.
Resonance is a law of correspondence. Creation is sound/ light at different frequencies. Trees, flowers, fruit are a manifestation of condensed sunlight. What is your resonance? The path to Asgard/ Immortality is a process of density, from the least vital, slow waveform to the most vital, fast waveform. Are the different worlds different frequencies? Higher energetic states are beyond the slower. There appears to be a conspiracy to suppress this vitality, maintaining a domesticated human lacking subtle and higher sensitivity to greater realities and awareness – an attempt to disengage us from the Super Natural and integrate us into the artificial machine world. This is wild speculation for the dreamers.
In becoming (or returning to) an Immortal in Taoism, there is a transition from slow vibration (dense, animal flesh) to fast vibration (subtle, cosmic/ radiant energy) sustenance. Simply “you are what you eat”. Earth is perhaps the most dense reality.
Light is Consciousness. The greater the vibration, the greater the capacity for information. By sustaining ourselves with slow vibration/ death we align with a high density dark reality. 3d foods = 3d reality. Light(er) sustenance dissolves the veil of 3d reality and we expand into more subtle light realms.
Example density transition: meat > dairy > grains > vegetables > fruit > pure water > sunlight > aether / cosmic/ radiant energy
Plants transform light into 3d matter. Are we able to achieve similar accessing this light directly?
Light-harvesting chlorophyll pigments enable mammalian mitochondria to capture photonic energy and produce ATP”, indicates that by eating a chlorophyll-rich diet mammals (and by implication humans) can capture specific wavelengths of sunlight radiation that will translate into increased energy within the powerhouses of the cell known as the mitochondria.” source
There may be a point where human physiology is so purified and adapted one can absorb sunlight directly. Mystics have transcended through this process (with meditations and energy practices).
The Japanese likewise practiced various dietary abstentions: nikudachi from meat, shiodachi from salt, kokudachi for abstention from the Five Cereals and hidachi from cooked food (Blacker 1999). Japan’s famous sages, such as Ryosan retired to Mt. Kimpu eating only leaves, or Yosho who diminished his intake to a single grain of millet and then ceased altogether and vanished only to be seen flying like a “unicorn or phoenix” (Blacker 1999). The Japanese have a specific practice, “tree-eating” or mokujiki, to help give up the cereals which consists of eating berries, bark or pine needles. Blacker mentions, Mokujiki Shonin, the Saint Tree-eater, which is applied to ascetics since medieval times.
“Zhuangzi praises that idyllic age with these words: ‘Spirits and gods show their good will and nobody dies before his time’” (Levi 1982). This is anathema to the Confucian view that it took a civilizing divine-potentate to rescue humanity from it’s own ignorance and helplessness in a brutal wilderness. This expresses a fundamental cosmological orientation that is the foundation for much of the social movements in China, perhaps even into modern times. “Ancient man imbibed dew” and “fed on primordial breath and drink harmony” and ate not the toilsome, vulgar crops of the red dust that are exemplified in the Five Sacred Grains (wu ku). source
In European traditions, overcoming death, ethereal divine nectars the gods partake, no mortal foods do they consume.
The ancient Greeks called mead, Ambrosia, or Nectar (history gives us many names & varieties of Mead). It was believed to be the drink of the gods, and was thought to descend from the Heavens as dew, before being gathered in by the bees. Because of the believed ties to the gods, it is easy to see why the ancient Greeks believed mead to have magical and sacred properties. The Greeks believed that mead would prolong life, and bestow health, strength, virility, re-creative powers, wit and poetry. The bees themselves, we are told by Virgil’s Georgics are driven to the sky to honor the goddess Aphrodite. And, the prophetess’ at Delphi are suspected of drinking mead made from a honey from slightly toxic plants in order to induce their prophetic states, and visions of the future.
While the great Norse god, Odin, was said to have gained his strength but suckling Mead from a goats’ udder as an infant. Celtic mythology tells of a river of mead running through paradise, while the Anglo-Saxon culture held mead up as the bestower of immortality, poetry and knowledge. source
The concept of an immortality drink is attested in at least two Indo-European areas: Greek and Sanskrit. The Greek ἀμβροσία (ambrosia) is semantically linked to the [anskrit अमृत (amṛta) as both words denote a drink or food that gods use to achieve immortality. The two words appear to be derived from the same Indo-European form *ṇ-mṛ-to-, “immortal” (n-: negative prefix from which the prefix a- in both Greek and Sanskrit are derived; mṛ: zero grade of *mer-, “to die”; and -to-: adjectival suffix). A semantically similar etymology exists for nectar, the beverage of the gods (Greek: νέκταρ néktar) presumed to be a compound of the PIE roots *nek-, “death”, and -*tar, “overcoming”.
In ancient Greek mythology, ambrosia (Greek: ἀμβροσία, “of the immortals”) is sometimes the food or drink of the Greek gods, often depicted as conferring longevity or immortality upon whoever consumed it. It was brought to the gods in Olympus by doves,
In Greek mythology, Ichor (/ˈaɪkər/ or /ˈɪkər/; Ancient Greek: ἰχώρ) is the ethereal golden fluid that is the blood of the gods and/or immortals.
The consumption of ambrosia was typically reserved for divine beings. Upon his assumption into immortality on Olympus, Heracles is given ambrosia by Athena, while the hero Tydeus is denied the same thing when the goddess discovers him eating human brains. In one version of the myth of Tantalus, part of Tantalus’ crime is that after tasting ambrosia himself, he attempts to steal some away to give to other mortals. Those who consume ambrosia typically had not blood in their veins, but ichor. source
Ichor originates in Greek mythology, where it is the ethereal fluid that is the Greek gods’ blood, sometimes said to retain the qualities of the immortal’s food and drink, ambrosia or nectar. It was considered to be golden in color, as well as lethally toxic to mortals.
Iliad V. 364–382
Blood follow’d, but immortal; ichor pure,
Such as the blest inhabitants of heav’n
May bleed, nectareous; for the Gods eat not
Man’s food, nor slake as he with sable wine
Their thirst, thence bloodless and from death exempt. † source
The path to immortality and spiritual development is relative to resonance/ correspondence , the path being conscious expansion into greater light spectrum awareness. Light permeates all things but our capacity to see, hear and feel has been made dull by heavy elements, for example with alcohol our senses can become vastly impaired, entering states of oblivion, with people experiencing total memory loss, etc.
In my experiments (say a week of only mangoes/ oranges) bliss is experienced, unveiled by changes in what I use to create and sustain my body (physical, mental, emotional). Upgrading to higher frequency sustenance increases senses of sight, smell, clarity of mind, etc.
En-lighten-ment/ becoming light (again), is our natural state, from which we have become far removed via a process of consuming greater density/ darkness/ ignorance. We have corrupted our temple, our cosmic fire water energy body, distancing ourselves from the Divine, to greater or lesser degrees. We now find ourselves in a world ruled by base forces, ensnared by them, doing their bidding, enacting their parasitic behavior on the world at large, enslaving and ravenously feeding upon all nature. In ancient Taoist thought there is the 3 corpse worm demons concept (physical and spiritual parasites). These demons/ parasites create cravings, thoughts and desires, manipulating us toward self destruction so we become host to them while they feed on our vital energies (little different to how we treat cattle), promoting and feeding on death and decay. Individually and collectively we believe their thoughts, feelings, and desires to be our own, keeping us bound to this dimensional realm, rather than being the elevated Grand Suns, Sols, or Beings of Light that we are.
This transition is also mental in terms of what we believe is and isn’t real or possible. “Those who say they can and those who say they can’t are both right”, only for a few.
Roughly 96 percent of the mass of the human body is made up of just four elements: oxygen, carbon, hydrogen and nitrogen, with a lot of that in the form of water. The remaining 4 percent is a sparse sampling of the periodic table of elements.
