There‘s another major factor that we.re going to focus on in this story. Thirteen thousand years ago we were aware of something about ourselves that we’ve since completely forgotten: The geometric energy fields around our bodies can be turned on in a particular way, which is also connected to our breath. These fields used to spin at close to the speed of light around our bodies, but they slowed down and stopped spinning after the Fall. When this field is turned back on and spins, it‘s called a Mer-Ka-Ba, and its usefulness in this Reality is unparalleled. It gives us an expanded awareness of who we are, connects us with higher levels of consciousness and restores the memory of the infinite possibilities of our being.
A healthy spinning Mer-Ka-Ba is fifty to sixty feet in diameter, proportionate to one‘s height. The rotation of a spinning Mer-Ka-Ba can be displayed on a computer monitor using the appropriate instruments, and its appearance is identical with the infrared heat envelope of the galaxy [Fig. 1-2].the same basic shape as the traditional flying saucer.
梅尔卡巴由三个更短的词组成，来自古老的埃及。其它的文明可能记做merkabah, merkaba, merkavah。它有很多种发音，但一般把三个音节分开读，每个音节都是重音：Mer 代表某种特定的光，只有在第十八王朝的埃及才被理解。它看起来像是两个反向旋转的光场在同一个空间转动，由某种呼吸模式产生；Ka 代表单个的灵﹙Spirit﹚；Ba 代表灵对它所处的实相所做的诠释。在我们特定的实相中，Ba 通常被定义为身体的或物质的实相。在那些没有身体的灵的实相中，Ba 代表灵带给自己的、对实相的概念或诠释。
The word Mer-Ka-Ba is made up of three smaller words, Mer, Ka and Ba, which, as we are using them, came from ancient Egyptian. It is seen in other cultures as merkabah, merkaba and merkavah. There are several pronunciations, but generally you pronounce it as if the three syllables are separate, with equal accents on each. Mer refers to a specific kind of light that was understood in Egypt only during the Eighteenth Dynasty. It was seen as two counterrotating fields of light spinning in the same space, which are generated by certain breathing patterns. Ka refers to the individual spirit and Ba refers to the spirit‘s interpretation of its particular reality. In our particular reality, Ba is usually defined as the body or physical reality. In other realities where spirits don’t have bodies, it refers to their concepts or interpretation of the reality they bring with them.
So the Mer-Ka-Ba is a counterrotating field of light that affects spirit and body simultaneously. It is a vehicle that can take spirit and body (or one.s interpretation of reality) from one world or dimension into another. In fact, the Mer-Ka-Ba is much more than this, because it can create reality as well as move through realities. For our purposes here, however, we will focus mainly on its aspect as an interdimensional vehicle (Mer-Ka-Vah means chariot in Hebrew) that will help us return to our original higher state of consciousness.
为了不延续混淆，这里我想加一些注释：“灵魂”这个词是区别于身体来说的，真正要讨论时应该分开。在圣经中，灵﹙Spirit﹚与魂﹙Soul﹚是两个不同层次的部分。《地球之书Urantia》中也详细讨论过， Ka 为Spirit，代表阴；Ba 为Soul，代表阳。倪柝声在《属灵人》中说“灵魂”一词是堕落人类的思想，这里引用书中的一段话：“一个完全的人，是灵、魂、体的三位一体。照这一节圣经看来，人是用两件独立的质造的：灵、体。灵进入了体之后，就生出魂。魂是从灵与体联合而后生的。体原是死的，因为生命的灵，与之相遇，就生出第三的魂。无灵，体是死的；有灵，人才会生活。有灵在体，就有生机，这种生机，就叫作魂。”
