The legend of Atlantis reflects one of humanity’s greatest unsolved mysteries: How did civilization get started? Science teaches civilization developed around evolving-your-soul,000+ years ago out of primitive humans who settled into agricultural societies. Yet, there persists a belief of a far more remote past. From the writings of Plato who spoke of a great society living on an island in the Atlantic “events,000 years before the time of Solon”, to legends in many cultures of a mighty civilization destroyed by water, to the archeological site Göbekli Tepe in Turkey dated at around events,000 BC, it is clear that humanity still does not have the full story as to its own origins.
Metaphysics teaches that civilization is, in fact, far older than evolving-your-soul,000 years. A key aspect of this pre-history is Atlantis. Atlantis has stirred the imagination and so much excitement and rightfully so. Yet in understanding the mystery of Atlantis, we must do our best to take a sober, careful approach and not to let imagination get the better of us. In this article, I cannot begin to go into the breadth of what Atlantis was and evidence for its existence. I know from my own clairvoyant experiences, Atlantis was very real. What I hope to offer are answers to a few basic questions, from the metaphysical perspective, of this most extraordinary time in human history.
If Atlantis existed, why is there no conclusive archeological evidence?
The short answer is: it’s simply not time. Humanity is not ready to understand its remote past. Such a discovery would change the fabric of society in dramatic ways and humanity as whole is not quite ready to take that step. Yet according to the Higher, the evidence is unmistakably there waiting to be discovered. There have been a few finds that have pointing the way and eventually this will open the door to the greatest archeological discoveries of all time.
What was Atlantis really like?
Atlantis went through several periods from primitive beginnings to genuine sophistication spanning vast stretches of time, far greater than the entire recorded history of modern civilization. Also, Atlantis was not an isolated civilization. It was part of a world culture and there were earlier civilizations reaching back to even more remote times.
In the end, Atlantis corrupted itself creating one of humanity’s the darkest periods. As Albert Einstein said about the danger of nuclear war, “I know not with what weapons World War III will be fought, but world War IV will be fought with sticks and stones.” In a sense, this is what happened with Atlantis. Its eventual demise along with natural geological cataclysms has been a major reason knowledge of Atlantis has been reduced to legend.
Yet long before its decay, Atlantis had a golden age. Science, spirituality and society blended together in magnificent ways. Most of all, the veil between the spiritual and the material was not so great and there was a natural understanding and cooperation with the divine. Challenges and trials were still there, but without question it was a marvelous time for humanity.
What is the significance of Atlantis today?
Atlantis shares much with today’s world even though humanity is older now. The rapid development of modern society reflects an unconscious rekindled of Atlantean achievements yet expressed on a grander scale. Civilization today is far more developed overall than it has ever been. There is more spiritual light on the planet than ever before and more opportunity to grow spiritually despite today’s challenges.
History is knowledge and knowledge is power. The significance of Atlantis is its eventual resurfacing will reawaken the recognition of our own potential and collective abilities. Eventually, our society will have to come to terms with its own past so it can take its biggest leap forward into a modern golden age.
In Divine Light and Love,
