Creation: a co-operation of the
male and the female energies
beginning there is Creation: time and space are created from what is One.
Diversity is the consequence: life takes on endless forms; there are an
infinite number of fields of experience, spheres, dimensions and worlds to
explore. This raises the question: Why did Creation happen?
includes everything, and in order for you to become aware of only part of that
unity, Creation is necessary. To give an example: white light is the sum of all
colors. To experience individual colors, we may break up the white light with
the use of a prism. This diffusion of the white light into all the colors of
the rainbow is what I call Creation: creating diversity from unity.
we have experienced the beauty and qualities of all the individual colors do we
understand truly what is white. Creation creating diversity stems from the
desire for self awareness. We understand the whole only when we have really
experienced all the individual parts. We can compare this with the journey we
make during our lives. When I was a kid, I understood what it was like to be a
child, but I did not yet know what it is like to be a teenager in love, what it
is like to be a married man, or a father. I need to have all those experiences
to really understand who I am as a human being and to truly find peace within
great journey of discovery, which is the purpose of Creation, two forces play a
central role: the male and the female. The male power is an outgoing,
inquisitive energy that is adventurous and wants to experience and understand
all things. It is this force that lies at the basis of the emergence of time
and space. The female energy creates the consciousness of inner oneness.
Through the female side, humankind is connected to that oneness (the One), and
with the male side, it is connected to diversity (the Many.) The female side
has to do with the inner world, the male side with the outward, manifest
energy ensures that what is unique and individual can be experienced in
everything, while the female energy ensures integration and union. Without the
female energy that integrates the unique experiences of individuals into a
larger picture, they would become lost in the night.
arises when a living being begins to identify too much with one side or the
other. In the present state of humanity, it is the male side that is the
dominant object of identification. The result is a suppression of the female
side which causes a loss of that sense of inner connectedness. The I-sense is
too strong: the ego sees itself placed in front of a universe that is no longer
experienced as a protective mother. It then feels small and threatened, and
reacts by wanting to amass as much power as possible from that universe.
female is the dominant energy, too much attention is focused on the inner world,
which creates a duality with the outside world. The inner world, the world of
the spiritual, is then seen as higher and superior to the outer reality of
diversity and plurality of forms.
Paradise: balance between the
female and the male
see duality at work in the history of mankind. In a pre-historic past, there
was a balance between the male and female energies. At that time, there were no
countries, no borders. This was the time of an earthly paradise that was called
Lemuria. In me, there live impressions of a time when I, along with other
angelic beings, were busy preparing the Earth for the arrival of humans.
"It's like a beautiful dream of a long, long
time ago. We were radiant angelic beings. In collaboration with mother Earth,
we were creating nature. Time for us had quite a different speed: the plants
that we created, we saw emerge before our eyes. We were busy preparing the
Earth for the arrival of humankind. It was a time of hope, a time of love. We
thought that the Earth would become a beautiful playground in which beings with
a simple childlike consciousness could discover what life is in a delicious
way; a place where people could enjoy their love for one another and for
nature. How mistaken we were. What went so terribly wrong? "
people who populated the Earth at that time felt the inner connectedness of
life and knew that mother Earth was there for everyone. People lived in harmony
with nature. The Earth, like the air, was there for everyone, but she was not
our possession. At the same time, life was a journey of discovery, a delightful
adventure. On every mountain, a new vista; behind every horizon, a new country
with new experiences to explore.
was created as a very curious, inquisitive race. In those days, people
possessed an exuberant, somewhat childlike consciousness. They enjoyed life
with a spontaneous happiness that we see only in children. Their consciousness
was more extensive than ours: they could communicate with animals, plants,
mountains, and rivers. It was natural for them to have contact with spiritual
guides and with etheric creatures like elves and goblins. They had a very
different sense of time and lived day to day.
developing humanity, there was a natural rhythm, with the female and the male
energies more or less dominant at alternating times. After each phase of
discovery and exploration, came a phase of internalization. Just as a human
runs by alternating the left and the right leg. But then it went wrong.
of paradise: the snake and the emergence of duality
Bible, this phase is described as the symbolic story of Eve, who is tempted by
the serpent to taste of the apple which gives humans knowledge of good and
wrong? Humanity as a whole is a male race, a race that focuses on discovery and
adventure. For this reason, there existed in humanity itself the desire to
become more free from the spirit world. The human race wanted to go on an
adventure and discover. Humanity gradually incarnated deeper into the Earth and
into matter. The connection with their guides the angels who accompany
humanity on its way and the observance of the spiritual world became less
important. Women, who by their nature are more focused on the inner world, were
more skilled in creating this connection than men, and some women were better
at doing this than were other women.
latter group was very important to the community and thus there arose a class
of priestesses. When the gap between these priestesses and the spiritual realm
of angels accompanying humankind became greater, an opening emerged for contact
with other sources that had less commendable intentions. Reptilian energies
(the Snake from the Bible) wanted to weaken humanity through divisions.
were tempted with the following ideas: the inner world is more important than
the outer; women who are more attuned to the inner world, are better than men
and are entitled to lead men. Such thoughts stroked their ego, and they began
gradually to embrace this dualistic worldview. Women, and the inner world, were
considered superior, representing the "higher". Men, and the outer
world, were considered inferior, representing the "lower". This was
the bite of the Apple: duality, the so-called knowledge of good and evil, got
solidly grounded into the thoughts of humankind.
priestesses began to consider themselves more and more important and wanted
beautiful temples and homes for themselves. There emerged communities that
remained in one locality. Humanity stopped wandering and discovering new
things, and the women remained dominant for a long time. Men were increasingly
regarded as inferior beings, and even treated as slaves.
Female domination and the wounds
in the male energy
of Queen-priestesses began. They proclaimed a dualistic worldview that
justified their power and authority and the essential superiority of women over
men. They claimed that truth resides only in the inner world, and that only
women had access to that truth. The outer world was portrayed as bad,
dangerous, and tempting, and people had to be protected against this bad world
for their own good.
concept had four far-reaching consequences which would cause deep wounds in the
The first wound: the loss of beauty
living in one place requires intensive agriculture and heavy work: men's work.
The natural urge of men toward adventure, which was already seen as suspicious,
was thereby even further suppressed. That urge does not go with heavy and
boring work such as plowing and threshing.
of what it was to be a good man changed: he was to be a reliable hard worker
who had no time for much thought. Adventurous men were regarded as tramps and
hobos, a danger to the community. All kinds of expressions in our time still
refer to this: "No one dies of hard work." "Man must earn his
living by the sweat of his brow." "The devil finds work for idle hands."
the desire for adventure in men is ultimately the desire to experience the
beauty and the wonders of the universe. By suppressing this desire, the first
wound in the male energy emerged: the loss of the ability to appreciate beauty.
Men learned that to enjoy the beauty of life, to go on an adventure and explore
new ways of life, the urge to create, to discover, were all "bad"
qualities that should be suppressed. A "good" man is a very hard
worker who asks no questions.
see the consequences of this way of thinking. Look at the modern cities that
are designed and built almost exclusively by hard working men and notice their
lack of color and beauty. We still see all around us only a runaway male energy
that cannot come to rest and does not seem to know what it wants.
this development, men became almost entirely responsible for the food supply,
making them more important within the community.
The second wound: the loss of love
of the dualistic worldview of the Priestess caste, the outer world became
increasingly seen as dangerous. The communities remained established in one
place and needed protectors. This was also the task of men: the hunters became
warriors. A warrior, however, unlike a good hunter, can have no feelings. A
soldier who kills another human being should not have feelings about his
victim. He cannot let it enter his mind that the one whom he has killed was
once a baby who had a mother who might have loved him very much and wanted the
best for him. The warrior cannot think: "Now I have killed her baby. How
will that affect her? What will she feel when she hears that he is dead? How
many tears will she shed?" A warrior who has empathy, cannot be a warrior.
warrior suppresses the energy of the heart and acts from a very dualistic
worldview: that the other, the enemy, is bad. The opponent is not actually a
human being and therefore I may kill him. This attitude, of course, resulted in
an increase of duality in the world. There was more and more fighting, more
wars, and more borders in the world. And so warriors men were becoming
increasingly important; men who had lost connection with their heart.
the second wound in the male energy, the wound in the heart: the loss of love.
A man who turns off his powers of empathy feels lonely and lost in a large,
empty, and hostile universe.
The third wound: the loss of wisdom
the established communities, change and renewal were regarded with suspicion.
Power became conservative; power goes hand in hand with fear of change and a
lack of flexibility. The natural, love-based spirituality changed more and more
into a fear- based dualistic faith with all kinds of rules about good and evil.
When spirituality is an established religion, officers are necessary who can
enforce the rules, by force if necessary, and this suppresses innovation; this
also became the task of men. The truth was no longer considered to be a living
and loving energy, which dynamically unfolds and shows ever new facets. The
truth was laid down in a set of rules which men imposed. At that time, we see
the emergence of authoritarian religions in which the truth is established once
and for all, and if you disagreed, you were bad or sinful.
maintaining the rules of a religion often coincides with the promotion of that
religion, the latter was also increasingly a task of men. Men were now the
authorities on spirituality. This
strengthened the tendency that men were more important and more powerful.
However, authoritarian religions have little in common with wisdom and truth.
Thus was born the third wound in the male energy: the loss of wisdom. Humanity
still suffers greatly from the idea that change is bad and that the truth has
been set down in a book of rules once and for all.
The fourth wound: the loss of a tender sexuality
of the rising tension between the sexes, the experience of sexuality also came
to be under pressure; there was less and less place for love and tenderness.
When men under the dominating priestesses had been regarded as inferior, having
sex with a man was seen as a necessary evil. And so women started to suppress
their sexual energy. For men, sex became more and more associated with the
expression of suppressed anger. Where it first was an expression of love for
the woman, it now became the expression of violence. Lust and pent up anger
began to coincide: the sexual fantasies of men were often violent.
born a fourth wound: a wound in the area of sexuality. From that time on,
sexuality has often more to do with repressed emotions than with the love
between men and women.
The emergence of male dominance
the priestesses no longer proclaimed a living spirituality, they ultimately
made themselves redundant. The rigid rules of an authoritarian dualistic
religion can function without female love and intuition.
men gradually were responsible for the food supply, the protection of the
community, and the strict enforcement of a "dead" spirituality, they
got the upper hand. The male energy became dominant and would continue so for a
dominant male energy, however, was a wounded male energy: a man emerged who had
lost his sense of beauty, his heart and its wisdom. Women were seen as an
inferior sex object and were often the victim of twisted sexual feelings
arising from violence. Women reminded men of their feelings and feelings were
dangerous and bad, so women were bad. Because the truth was secured in rules
and commandments, the natural intuitive and spiritual abilities of women were
seen as bad and dangerous. The terrible witch burnings, which in some places of
the world still take place, started in those days. Women were getting fewer and
fewer rights and became increasingly oppressed. Eventually, they were only
considered suitable for childbearing and raising children. In the Middle Ages,
women were even regarded by many theologians as beings without a soul.
had been abandoned: there ensued a time of wars, cruelty, division, and
falsehood, a time that would strike deep wounds in the female energy. An
inwardly divided humanity was no longer able to protect itself. The snake had
achieved its goal: human beings were no longer connected to the living truth
and were prone to false ideas. Someone who embraces a dualistic worldview is
afraid, and someone who is afraid is easy to manipulate: you impress on him
that if he does not listen to you, he will be the victim of what he is afraid
Extraterrestrial influences and
the emergence of Atlantis
who despise the feminine are vulnerable. They long for what is higher and for
guidance, but at the same time they reject the natural solution that the female
energy offers: to rely on your intuition and inner knowing. They then find a
false solution: powers in the outside world who claim to be "higher".
But they then become completely open to manipulation.
In the past, the consequence of this
vulnerability was that humanity became a plaything for all kinds of Galactic
forces. Humans who have lost connection with the inner female allow themselves
to be captivated easily by what appear to be miracles and the power of
technically advanced civilizations. Soon, representatives of these
civilizations were seen by humanity as gods. Humans were manipulated in every
possible way, and also in genetic ways. A lot of stories about old gods, such
as the famous Greek world of gods, with all their human errors and their
cruelties date from this time. The answer to the question: "Were the gods
cosmonauts?" (title of a book by Erich von Dδniken), is in my opinion,
of oppression ended when a group of advanced extraterrestrial souls decided to
live on Earth to help mankind develop. They created a kind of breed of
supermen; also known as Atlanteans or stellar people. They were physically taller
than the Earth's people and had great intellectual capabilities; their third
eye was also highly developed. Their goal was twofold: to liberate humanity and
the Earth from unwanted alien influences and to bring humanity into contact
again with its natural spirituality. The latter was to be achieved by restoring
the balance between the male and female energies.
Atlantic era had begun: a period in the history of mankind that lasted about a
hundred thousand years. During this period, there was a sharp distinction
between these incarnate extra-terrestrials, who regarded themselves as the
enlightened leaders of humanity the so-called spiritual hierarchy and the
more or less unconscious members of humankind. The stellar people, the
Atlanteans, were coming face to face with the Earth's people.
the birth of Atlantis carried within itself the seeds of its downfall. In order
to liberate mankind from alien influences, the stellar people on Earth built up
a huge dominance: they were the ruling class and regarded the Earth's people as
their subordinates. This was at odds with their spiritual intentions. Having
power over the Earth's people did not go together with their purpose of freeing
those same people inwardly. The spirituality of the stellar people was not yet
really a heart-borne one. It carried power motives with it.
Atlanteans saw the Earth people increasingly as dumb creatures only suitable
for slave labor. They started to see themselves increasingly as superior and
abused the power of their third eye more frequently. In addition, where the
Atlanteans considered men and women equals, that was not the case with their
subordinates, the Earth's people. With them, it was the men who dominated. This
suited the Atlanteans because men were better suited to follow their orders and
to build their magnificent cities. The Atlanteans understood very well that as
long as women were suppressed, they could stay in control of humankind and they
could do what they wanted.
corrupts, and this was also the case with the Atlanteans. Increasingly, they
began to enjoy their power, their apparent success and invincibility.
Increasingly, they abused the powers of their third eye. This third eye is
often called the agni, the fire chakra, and water was needed to erase this
power. Much has been written about the sinking of Atlantis. Still, the deepest
reason for it was an act of self-sacrifice. The more highly-developed
Atlanteans understood that they could only help humanity by joining it, and
this could only be accomplished by the destruction of Atlantis. Only in this
way could the duality between the stellar people and the Earth people be
I remember this episode from a previous life: "I
am standing in a beautiful building, a wonderful white tower. I look out over a
city. I have just had a fight with a woman. She has been with me for a long
time, but she is leaving me now for good. I'm sad about her departure. She
wants to live among the Earth people to help them as a kind of aid worker. The
gap between us, the almighty Atlanteans, and the Earth people is huge. We see
them as a lower life form. When I tune into this woman, I feel that she is
essentially an Earth soul who has been born among the Atlanteans; that is why
her desire to help the Earth is so great. She is also somewhat small and her
hair is red, which is unusual among Atlanteans. I walk into a room, and in the
middle of the room is a powerful symbol drawn on the floor. If you are in the
middle of that symbol you can leave your body very easily and permanently.
I realize what the woman wants to do is the right
thing but it will not work, she is an exception. As long as Atlantis exists,
Earth people will be subordinates. It has been this way for thousands of years.
The gap is too big, power too addictive, too prevalent.
Deep below me I feel how the forces turn themselves
against Atlantis. I connect with those forces and say: "Yes, go ahead. I
feel that I am not the only one; many others feel that it has been enough,
things cannot continue this way, the pain among the Earth's people, and in the
Earth itself, is too much. There exists in us a desire for change, a longing
for a new adventure. A deepening of life."
I then go and stand in the symbol and I let go of
my body. I know when I will be born again Atlantis will no longer be there; I
will no longer be one of them."
So it was
that the Atlantic rulers became what we now call Lightworkers. For centuries,
they would be persecuted and oppressed by humanity while they were trying to
bring humanity back in touch with the inner truth that comes to us through the
After the Fall: the Atlantic
of Atlantis left a definite imprint on humankind in relation to how a society
is supposed to be: the idea that there is some sort of upper class of people
who are privileged and a class of serving people. For many centuries, humankind
was to be governed by the so-called nobility, people who believed that on the
basis of their birth they stood above others and had the right to dominate them.
The nobility arose from the memory in the Earth's people of how the Atlanteans
behaved toward them. As soon as a nation was created somewhere, a privileged
aristocratic class immediately arose; the unconscious memory of Atlantis was
responsible for that.
the case with the Atlanteans, that women were equal to men, women were allowed
to be leaders of the lower class of Earth people. Many millennia later, at a
time when women were considered inferior, this Atlantean reminder, as a result,
allowed that women could give leadership in countries provided they were of the
nobility. For example, in a country like The Netherlands, it was accepted as
normal to have a Queen in a time when women still had no right to vote. Leading
women were accepted, as long as they were of "blue blood " a
reference to the celestial origin of the Atlanteans who, on the basis of
their origin, stood above ordinary people.
fall of Atlantis, the artificially maintained unity achieved by Atlantis also
disappeared: there emerged borders and nations. Again and again, humanity tried
to recreate Atlantis from its male energy. The great empires of antiquity:
Babylon, Assyria, Persia, the Roman Empire, all were attempts to recreate
Atlantis. And because each one of those countries tried again to be the New
Atlantis, there was almost continuous war.
all attempts to unify humanity through battle are doomed to failure. Unity can
only arise when it comes from within, not by having it imposed from above. This
is what the Atlanteans eventually understood and therefore why they transformed
themselves into Lightworkers. The Atlantic curse is that humankind tries to
recreate Atlantis, again and again. The desire to create an empire that imposes
its will, a desire to live in the magnificent cities of antiquity, the
disrespect for nature, the rule by the upper classes of people with "blue
blood", all are consequences of the memory of Atlantis.
is precisely the Atlanteans who themselves want things to be different: they are
the Lightworkers of today. These souls remember exactly how, through the abuse
of power, things went wrong in the past and they will do their best to protect
humanity against disasters. Fortunately, more and more people are starting to

carriers of love and inspiration. They were often violently persecuted for
their role, but, in the meantime, they planted seeds of light and hope. Men who
had a strong connection with their intuition gave humanity beautiful art and
scientific and social progress. And everywhere in the world lived brave women,
witches often, who remained faithful to themselves and courageously stood up
for their original spirituality. They have helped an incredible number of
people and planted innumerable seeds of light in the hearts of people. But all
too often they ended up burned at the stake.

your enemies", said Jeshua. It is not so that love transcends duality. No,
love brings to light that duality is an illusion. It is as if you go with a
lamp in your hand to search for the darkness, but wherever you arrive there
appears to be no darkness, because after all, the light of your lamp shines
there. Darkness does not really exist; it is simply the absence of light.
Duality does not really exist; duality is the lack of love. Every time we
really open up to another, we discover that that person is just as we are. The
duality that we first thought to be real appears not to exist at all, it is an
all the wars, humankind developed further and found both technical and social
progress. Important social developments include the abolition of slavery, the
emancipation of women, and the elimination of child labor. In the field of
technology, humanity advanced so far that it built a rocket that went to the
moon. And once humans landed on the Moon, they looked at the Earth and found
their home more stunningly beautiful than ever. They saw a striking blue world
without limits and realized deep in
their hearts that this world is a beautiful living being that we so abuse. They
brought back gorgeous pictures and stories. They shared their spiritual experiences.

the male energy. It is like the seeds that erupt from the male. After this
happens, there are feelings of gentleness and tenderness and peace; the female is
given back its space.
Humanity becoming whole
the sixties, a great healing process began to take place. Men started to wear
their hair long, a sign of recovering a connection with the inner female. From
all sides, humanity was helped to overcome duality and become conscious of the
interconnectedness of life. Science developed the Gaia hypothesis by James
Lovelock: the idea that the Earth is one living organism. This was a radical
break with the "masculine" evolution theory which states that the
Earth consists of a multitude of organisms that fight one another: the fight of
all against all. The Gaia theory is part of a much larger theory; namely, that
the entire infinite universe is a single living whole: we are one.
whole also means unification. And indeed humanity is busy discovering its inner
unity and connectedness. People travel more and more, and friendlier meetings
are taking place between people of different cultures. Thanks to the rise of
English as a unifying language and the Internet, I can now, for the first time
in human history, communicate with almost everyone. We are also increasingly
beginning to embrace the same values on Earth: the Universal Declaration of
Integration also means that we realize
that we are one. We are not a man or a woman; we are human beings. Both the
masculine and feminine are inside us. To feel that and to embrace it makes us
complete, makes us stand on Earth as a shining light. Then there will be peace;
an inner peace that is reflected in harmony with our fellow human beings, with
the Earth and the universe itself.
