"An Altar of Earth shall thou make unto me, and shall sacrifice thereon my burnt offerings, and thy peace offerings, thy sheep and thy oxen; in all places where I record my name I will come unto them, and I will bless thee." (Exodus 20:24)
The altar of earth is the body which is made of the materials of the earth and should be an altar or holy thing dedicated to the service of God. On or within this altar should be sacrificed both the oxen and other animals, signifying the lower nature, and even the sheep or heart purity should be used in the service of God. If this is done, Jehovah promised (And all of the Bible promises hold good today) in all of the places within the body or centers where the Spirit is connected with the physical consciousness, God will record His name or give His spiritual vibration which will cause spiritual power and sight. In this heavenly power and vision we will be very greatly blessed.
In truth there is no furtive inner “I”. No “me” or “mine”. But outwardly the delight-appearance of life itself waxes and wanes, flows, spins in currents and eddies of wisdom and emptiness. This love manifests in realms and beings but is not mere nature - that machine of eating and being eaten. This movement of delight manifests in every interaction - but it is not mere relationship, that mechanism of fretful searching. Instead it is the always present deep of the ocean on which the waves rise and fall. It is the womb of space of the sky, spacious and vast, unmoved by the changing weather.
And now, the mind gone silent, form and emptiness embrace.
