The Five Emanations – Aligning the Modern Mind with the Ancient Soul by William Douglas Horden
The Five Emanations “is a course of self-transformation in the tradition of sudden enlightenment practitioners.” Everyone should have this wonderful book on their shelf of sacred texts.
Horden begins his Forward – The Yoke of Memory and Understanding, with an exciting tale of his own near death experience, in which he was given this message to give us. Nothing is more important than a conscientious communion of personality and soul. By learning to fully experience each moment of living, we are really learning to fully experience the moment of dying. At the moment of death the personality must be yoked to the soul so that the Memory of the lifetime is fused with the Understanding of the soul; and so that the personality does not become a disembodied personality.
Horden calls the place we go after death, the Sphere of Universal Communion. In this place all the spheres of light “are reflective of one another…. We are no less spheres of communion here than we are there.” He has not ever found any difference between his experience in a body and without a body. “It is clear that preparing to die is actually learning to live.”
Horden entitles his Introduction then, The Art of Living. Here his message sounds very much like the Law of Attraction and the work of Abraham-Hicks. “The way we are thinking and feeling all the time forms our relationship with the world….. When we change our moment-to-moment thoughts, we change our personal power, success and luck….. The Five Emanations are soul-thoughts that orient the personality to the compass points of the spiritual landscape…. They allow us to lean into the coming moment with a more open-minded, open-hearted and dynamic personality.” The Practice is to concentrate on these ancient soul thoughts enough to keep our habit-thoughts from taking over.
The First Emanation is REFLECTION; it sets our moment-to-moment awareness “against the standard of our own eternal well-being …. As an immortal spirit, are these the thoughts, feelings and memories I choose for eternity? Watch your thoughts! Watch your emotions! Watch your memories! Keep your feet on the path that will allow you to consistently answer irrevocably and resoundingly, Yes!”
Many people find the Second Emanation, FREEDOM, the most difficult one because it is about “training the personality to voluntarily quiet itself so that the soul’s thoughts, emotions and memories might be heard…. What is most important is not how others are treating me – What is most important is how I am treating others…. This has nothing to do with the fact that others wrong me – this has everything to do with gaining freedom from feeling wronged.” Abraham-Hicks explain that the only way another person can hurt me is if I am paying attention to what they think and do. When I am doing that, I am not centered. “Abandon the sense of being controlled and you have no need to control how others treat you!”
I just went thru the exact situation Horden describes. My partner in relationship had an affair. After 15 years, I had based my entire sense of identity on the way my partner treated me. In this case, the sense of betrayal and loss of self caused an intense period of confusion and disorientation. Results are feelings of outrage and righteous indignation that makes anger and resentment seem like justifiable responses. Horden asserts that, “When we enter relationships despite knowing that such things can happen, when we do not base our sense of self on the way the other person treats us, then the other person’s actions are matters of their own evolution, their own ethics, their own conscience, and not matters that throw us off balance and into an emotional and spiritual tailspin.”
“Your personality is so convinced that the habit thoughts running along with your body are you that it comes up with any number of reasons why replacing those thoughts is impossible. Even if those reasons can be addressed rationally, there is still an emotional component that is often reticent to admit that it is already talking to itself all the time. Repeating the same thoughts over and over, reacting to events in the same habitual way day in and day out, entertaining the same memories, most of which are based on pain and loss – the personality keeps the moment-to-moment awareness overwhelmed with the sense of a personal history in order to maintain the continuity of its artificial identity.”
This second Emanation, finding true freedom, is about coming to terms with our inability to control others and moving on to what we really can control; that is to “maintain the integrity of my relationship with the Living One by keeping my moment-to-moment awareness filled with noble, and ennobling, thoughts, emotions and memories.” The next 3 Emanations provide us with a baseline standard of inner actions that lead us deeper into the transformative nature of this practice.
Always be alert to any opportunity to be of benefit to the Whole! To be of encouragement and inspiration to and from all we touch is True Power. The Third Emanation is POWER. The Soul and the Universe are constantly pouring bliss into the other. Don’t worry about your well-being! The Soul is Well-Being. The Soul is Happiness. Replace the personality’s self-centered way of thinking and feeling with the Soul’s outpouring of Goodwill and Well-Being! Consistently repeat “I am a well of happiness, overflowing into the lives of others” to invest yourself with inner power to return to your Center! Explore the Universe of opportunities before you without losing your bearings! Look at the world thru the Soul’s eyes! The Soul has enough forever. Life is about creating something meaningful with others.
Once I learn to serve my soul within all matter and life, no thought can distance me from the sacredness of All; I will then have a new vision of the unfolding moment.
The Fourth Emanation is LUCK. “I am part of a Living Whole that wants the best for me and all others at the same time.” I bring good luck to all I touch.
At this point in the book, Horden says, “Be Water!” His fascinating treatment of what this means is as interesting as his Life after Death experience in the Forward of The Five Emanations. He says Water’s Cycle, from salt water to fresh water and back, is our Soul’s Mirror. All beings depend on Understanding and Memory for their immortality (salt water); while in these bodies we depend on our personality (fresh water.) Water’s Cycle is a model of how our personalities may authentically live.
This fourth emanation tells me that to “Be Water” means to sense the tides and currents in my body. Sense merging like a drop of water into the Ocean of Life! Go with the Flow! Consistently choose the path of nonresistance! Keep my mind focused on Goodwill toward All! Turn situations of unmet needs into wellsprings of benefit! Keep moving! Find my way by feel! My life thus becomes Improvisational.
Matter itself is Spirit. If I treat everything as living spirit that is how it responds to me. Address each thing in creation as a person in order to become more sensitive to the Immortality of All! The Fifth Emanation is CHARISMA. “Because everything is sacred, so am I.” I will have Visible Charisma when I sense the Sacredness I Embody. I will have Invisible Charisma when I sense the Sacredness of All Creation, including All that is beyond my senses. Accept my own Nobility and Ennoble everything I touch!
In authentic alliances all members are treated as a being of unknown potential, which they truly are. To be charismatic is to bless and to be blessed. Horden says Real Charisma is Sincere, Absurd and Magic. Absurd because the unexpected comes disguised as nonsense. Magic because we know without knowing how we know. Causes, which underlie everything at the same time, produce effects in other times and places. The Soul’s Understanding unconditionally accepts it’s belonging to the present moment.
The Science of “As Above, So Below,” proves everything is a microcosm of the living whole. Each personality is a microcosm of the whole of Humanity. Further the work of the great macrocosm by unconditionally accepting the unknowable nature of our own sacred mystery! There is only One. One Spirit! One Body! One Humanity! Formless takes Form; Form returns to Formless. “Everything is a Circle whose Center is Everywhere.” The ancient teaching of self liberation “transcends the separation of spirit and matter by uniting That which is Above with That which is Below in this very body in this very lifetime.”
Be aware of what carries you thru Life and Harmonize with it every moment!
Horden ends this lovely little book with this Blessing. “You are the Understanding and Memory That You Emanate.”
