Mother Earth / Father Time

 

Occurrences:  Mother Earth — 5      Father Time — 6

First Reference:  4th Endowment 2:29-30

 

Let us then create a spirit mother for the world of the First Heaven, and give into her keeping the natural elements thereof; and let us also give to her that loving passion for living things, which very passion will permit that she might reproduce after her own kind, to receive from Father Time the seed of her own making.

Thus shall there gently guide, both Mother Earth and Father Time over the worlds which we have made; to be themselves as one forever in love and true devotion, causing that they should watch closely over all living things; and together shall they place in the coming forth of all new life, a kind and loving reverence.”

 

 

See:  El-Kai-Terra

 

Summary:  The designation, “Mother Earth”, refers to the earth spirit of a particular planet, mortal or divine, fashioned by God to serve the purposes of eternal progression (Hodos Alea). The phrase “Father Time” presumably presents an anthropomorphized depiction of time, rather than an entity possessing an intelligence sovereign to itself.

 

All earth spirits are female and undergo a process of maturation, progression and exaltation unique to their nature. This process involves guiding the evolutionary course of life on the planet, and ensuring the natural elements do not harm the children of God in the living of their lives. The earth spirit guides and watches over the whole world, “Becoming to all...as a mother and a guardian, to keep the world in balance and deepest harmony; to become herself the guiding power filled with wisdom, directing at her will the natural forces of a living world...” (5:12:22).

 

The Supreme Mother and Father of Heaven, Areta and The One, fashioned the very first earth spirit which came to inhabit the first world of Heaven (4:2:29-33). Later, an infant spirit, “drawn from the womb of the first great earth spirit of Heaven”, was placed in the mortal world of Terralee and given the following directives:

 

4. For this cause did God place within the earth, a young and tender spirit which sought for itself some exaltation, being drawn from the womb of the first great earth spirit of Heaven, and to this young earth spirit did God give charge over all the elements, saying:

5. “On this earth shall the spirit children of God be sent to learn for themselves both good and evil through a great many oppositions, which oppositions shall arise within themselves in the living of the mortal life.

6. Therefore, watch you closely over such elements as do move and surge upon the earth, for it is not good that the natural elements should prove themselves an evil in the living of the mortal life, to fill the minds of those who live with hurtful doubts of God.

7. Let then the elements move about their natural course upon this living earth, but guard well that they destroy not the life of any man or woman or child;

8. For if it should be that any should perish because of flood or storm or violent quake, if any be consumed by belching flames or noxious gas, or if famines and pestilence should haunt the children of my soul, then shall God receive the blame, to be seen by those who live as cruel with deep uncaring.

9. Be you, therefore, wise and deeply knowing in the moving of such natural elements as do flow and surge and gush about this living earth; restrain them not, neither hinder them in their natural course.

10. But if it should be that the natural elements would destroy the life of any man or woman or child, then shall you reach forth to change their natural course for but a moment in a wise and subtle way and thereby preserve the lives of all my children.”

11. Thus spoke God unto the earth spirit which God placed within the bosom of the earth, and God gave to her a soft command that the earth should bring forth the tabernacles of the natural man whereby the spirit children of God might inhabit them.

4th Endowment 5:4-11

 

As a note of interest, this earth which we currently inhabit — referred to in scripture as the ‘world of the First Power’ or the ‘world of First Man’ — was not created by God and does not possess an earth spirit to guide the natural elements and protect the human family from ‘natural evil’, ie., any natural occurrence which inflicts ruin, injury or death, including floods, hurricanes, earthquakes and famines. The prospect of bringing forth a spirit to indwell this earth was considered, however, the presence and reign of the Demiurge, Jehovah-Yahweh, prevented this course of action:

 

For in the world of First Man do we find a world unmade by God, being itself subject to the laws of nature and not of God; causing that there should be thrown against the living, the hurt of many natural disasters; being in their advent blind and filled with great destruction; casting into the midst of mortal life the feeling of great and dreadful evil.

For in yonder world is there found no presence of earthly spirit, neither can we at this time call one to indwell the earth; for there rules over the world of the First Power, the Demiurge Jehovah-Yahweh; and even he would seek with dread resolve to kill such earthly spirit as we would seek to give.

6th Endowment 3:10-11

 

Scripture implies that a spirit could at some point indwell this earth, given the right circumstances (6:3:11). While such circumstances are not disclosed, aspects possibly correlated with this earth obtaining a spirit may include: 1) a shift in the agenda and/or influence of the Fallen, 2) a shift in the dominion and/or influence of Jehovah-Yahweh, and 3) a shift in the general standard of consciousness held by the human race (B:4:15).

 

Azrael’s Commentary - El Shalon / El Shaloah: Artificer

 

[...] The creating of a mortal world is labor intensive, and a labor which the Heavenly Father and Heavenly Mother do together. To begin this long involved process, the Heavenly Father first works with one of the Chief Artificers within the House of El Shalon in the placing of a solar system within any one of the radial arms of a spiral galaxy. This is important because you do not want to place your solar system within the neighborhood of some star which is likely to go super nova. Such a cosmic event would destroy the very world you desire to create as a school for your spirit children. While this is being done, the Heavenly Mother is working with someone from the Office of the Great Mother Spirit within the House of El Shaloah. For the world which is to be created must have an earth spirit itself, to govern and direct the natural laws and forces of the planet to which you intend to send your children (4:5:4-11).

 

Yet, despite this initial and necessary separation of labors, Heavenly Fathers and Heavenly Mothers, acting in the role of the Artificer, do work together in creating the mortal world upon which their children will go through the many lives of their mortality. After all, tectonic plates have to be aligned, continents, ocean beds and mighty rivers set in place; plus a myriad of life forms have to be brought forth. This is done through the process of evolution and literally takes millions of years. This evolutionary process is meant to test the design and utility of the earth which is being created for the sole benefit of spirit children. This evolutionary process is carried in the mind of the earth spirit itself. All earth spirits are feminine. There are no male earth spirits. [...] (See: El Shalon / El Shaloah)

 

 

Notes/References:

 

Let us then create a spirit mother for the world of the First Heaven, and give into her keeping the natural elements thereof; and let us also give to her that loving passion for living things, which very passion will permit that she might reproduce after her own kind, to receive from Father Time the seed of her own making.

Thus shall there gently guide, both Mother Earth and Father Time over the worlds which we have made; to be themselves as one forever in love and true devotion, causing that they should watch closely over all living things; and together shall they place in the coming forth of all new life, a kind and loving reverence.”

So spoke Areta, and being in agreement, God did reach into the world of the First Heaven and did gather into their hands the building elements of earth, wind, fire, and water together mingled in sweet accord;

And taking these he also took from each living thing a single element of a living cell; and all these things did they forge together into one; and then did they wrap the sum of all living things into the elements of God’s own soul, even the very intelligences which flow in the midst of the golden stream.

And when they were complete, God took the living seed and placed it in the heart of Father Time, causing that in the appointed season, there might be born the spirit of Mother Earth, which spirit God did place within the world of the First Heaven.

4th Endowment 2:29-33

 

Warm blew the winds of Terralee, the earth which God did make at the edge of distant Heaven; and on that earth did there come forth the first of mortal men through Mother Earth and Father Time, according to the will of God;

Being themselves fashioned of their environment through the process of evolution, possessing bodies of flesh and bone, but having no spirit within, being themselves as natural men filled with promise, ever moving upon the land, perchance that they might find that certain thing which would add some purpose to their life.

4th Endowment 6:1-2

 

Now consider the mysteries of creation, for there is in the Celestial Kingdom of God seven suns which move round about the other. And unto each sun are found many earths filled with an abundance of glory.

Seeing then that everything which is physical is made first spiritually, even so is it for these worlds whereupon many Gods dwell. And even as the Father of All seeks to enlarge the borders of his glory, even so does the world over which he presides.

Therefore, this exalted world did take seed unto itself to bring forth another like unto itself, and seeing that this new earth spirit is innocent, having no knowledge of good and evil, it was expedient to send it forth unto the lower creations, that it might possess unto itself a physical tabernacle.
