I believe The Hierarchy is of the same order. It is a book for the modern planet. Douglas Harding spent at least eight years writing this book in the s —more or less fourteen hours a day, seven days a week. He saw who he really was and then thought, felt and wrote deeply, consistently, passionately, about what he had found—how it made sense and what it meant for the world.
I am drunk with its genius. I believe the publication of this book in digital form is the equivalent of the moment when the Bible was made available to a wide audience with the invention of the printing press. Douglas took years to produce this one book plus one copy. He finished it in In the Shollond Trust with Crowquill produced copies. Thanks to the generous work of many volunteers, lovingly managed by my friend Navi Blight supported by her husband Sam the Shollond Trust can offer this book to as many people as click the button on our website.
Thank you friends, thank you Navi and Sam, thank you Douglas. It is a great achievement. Douglas once said that although the universe is often a tragic and terrible place, even so, a universe that produces the music of Mozart is a wonderful universe, a beautiful universe. I say, a universe that produces The Hierarchy of Heaven and Earth is, in spite of all the terror and tragedy in the world, a wonderful, beautiful universe. He first saw who he really was when he attended a workshop with Douglas Harding in He is committed to making this Vision as widely available as possible.
Douglas E. Harding — My solution if it can be called that will not in its entirety do for anybody else, and it is offered here more as an incentive than as a guide. In any case I have no complete, self-consistent, well-rounded system, but only the sketch-plan of a philosophy. The nature of man is a baffling and inexhaustible topic, about which I do not wish to dogmatize. Knowledge that is not counterbalanced with knowledge of ignorance is mere dead weight. I can offer no easy way out or in, no short cut to bliss, no philosophy without tears, no brand-new gospel.
All I can promise are some ancient teachings in modern dress — teachings that are difficult only because they are simple, and must be lived to be understood — together with some old recipes for hope and confidence. The merely new-fangled is as useless as the merely traditional.
The Hierarchy of Heaven and Earth - Douglas Harding - A View by Richard Lang
We must go forward to new ideas and back to old ones; we must get down to the facts of science and wake up to those of religion. This book is the book I would take with me to a desert island if I were allowed only one book. It is, so to speak, a modern Bible of who we really are. I believe The Hierarchy is of the same order. It is a book for the modern planet. Douglas Harding spent at least eight years writing this book in the s — more or less fourteen hours a day, seven days a week.
He saw who he really was and then thought, felt and wrote deeply, consistently, passionately, about what he had found — how it made sense and what it meant for the world.

Douglas took years to produce this one book plus one copy. He finished it in Close objects have taken only a fraction of a second to arrive here in me whereas the sun.
And we say: With this development came human culture. Currently most of us see ourselves in this human way.
The view out. These three stages apply at other levels too. I see myself as a separate mortal thing. But the view that she is separate from us and dead engenders a lack of respect towards her which has led us to pollute her body.
I dismiss the idea of headlessness as stupid or mad. The life on Earth is the life of Earth. I am aware of my view out into the world but unaware in any developed sense of the views in that others have of me. I do not stop at the boundary of this body but go on to include not only other people and other species but the planet too. Continuing to take on board what I am for others a person at the human level I also take seriously my own view.
Identifying with my view out I embraced the animals and plants — I was not separate from them. Of course each seer has described their experience in different ways depending on their religion. It may be these seers are forerunners of a transformation in human consciousness as a whole. Consequently we respected her great living body.
At the human level I am born unaware of my appearance. Stage three began appearing several thousand years ago with the emergence of mystics here and there who realized they were not at centre what they looked like to others — meaning they saw who they really were. I am capacity for my world — without knowing any other way of being. As an adult I see myself as others see me.. The survival of the species may depend on our coming to our senses in this way.
Evolving into the second stage I came to see myself from a distance. In other words I see I am the Earth. In the third stage we 'remember'. The Earth At the planetary level the broad outlines of the story are the same. The living Mother is back. In fact she never really died.
Unaware of being headless. In the second stage view in we have come to distinguish ourselves from the planet. I am in time for others. A perfect arrangement. This is the unitary science of all my levels. Stripped of time here I am clothed in time there. Metaphysics belongs to the centre and the Whole. I am dated. And yet… I look from the timeless into time.
At the heart of my time-bound. In my unborn and deathless being are the lives of all beings and they are all mine. Here I am wholly present. In the same way as others are in time for me.
The further I look. Or rather. At each level the scientist restricts herself to that zone. It is a contemporary vision of my. Regret and worry disslove here at centre. And here. At my centre everything is different. The human sciences study my middle layers.
Here as No-thing I take no time to manifest. There is no separation. I have no past to explain. A Unitary Science Each layer of my body has its science. It is only the travelling scientist. And the longer my past. I am encircled by increasingly ancient time zones.
And the higher the rank of the object I identify with reflected back to me by others of the same rank the older I am so that as a person I may reckon my age in tens of years. For an observer looking at me from several feet I am a human being. If I live long then working life will be followed by the active retirement of second youth with its partial surrender of responsibilities and powers.
Gradually I took on the arts and crafts of being human. What am I capacity for? Looking out a small distance from my centre I am capacity for my headless body. To test this for yourself. At this range I am one person amongst about six and a half billion others on this planet.. I was conceived in my mother's womb. As an adult I continue developing. The View Out What am I from my own point of view? At centre I am not a person.
I am aware space or capacity.. At this range I am looking into my human zone. Trading Faces When I meet a friend I see her face here in my no- face..
Put another way. The three stages are: Three Stages Of Life I have not always been aware that I am capacity for others — I used to see myself only as others saw me. I am her and she is me. I am stationed here in her human region where she manifests as a human being being no-thing for herself at centre.
Nor need this stage be the last stage in anyone's development. There are potentially three main stages in life: I've also described the important transition stage of the child. So I begin accepting I am a thing separate from all other things. The world I am capacity for includes my headless body. But to their frustration!

Looking at a flower I see the flower clearly with no idea of a face in the way. What choice is there anyway? No alternative is offered.
I relate simply and openly. But then mum or dad comes along and tells me to behave: In those blessed childhood hours when I am blissfully unaware of my image. Not yet over-concerned with what others think about me.
In imagination I travel several feet away from myself and. I have no awareness yet of my appearance in the eyes of others. I have not yet learned where I stop and the rest of the world begins.
My growing capacity to see myself as others see me distinguishes me from animals in the sense that animals do not become self-consciousness like humans. Much of the time I forget about what I look like.
Why do I start making this shift to seeing myself as others see me?
Now that as a child I am able to do more things physically and through language can communicate better. I am capacity for that face. Although from my point of view I am headless. When I am playing. I enjoy easy intimacy with others because I am capacity for them. The essence of this game is pretending I have a face where I don't have one. The basic condition for participating is knowing who I am in the eyes of others and taking responsibility for myself as that person.
The Hierarchy of Heaven and Earth
I am not a little baby — I am capacity for the world! Undivided in this way I have plenty of energy. As my grasp of language grows I begin learning to see myself as others see me.
In the company of others I see imagine myself face to face with them. I am original and inventive in my play.. Even though I am taking on board here what I am for others there.
I want to be a part of what is going on around me. So I begin to overlook and discount my own spacious view of myself. I am the flower. I am learning to play a game. I start imposing here on my central facelessness the face I see there in the mirror.
Gradually I learn that the infant in the mirror is not another infant but is myself. Not constricted yet by worrying about impressing others. In fact if I mention it. I do not yet have language. I am capacity for the world. Stage One. Without describing it in these terms. I see the flower. I am a speck of dust.
I take seriously what I see — that from my own point of view I am the headless source and container of the world! At the same time. Dimly recalling my original openness towards others. I search for it everywhere. On the other hand. Thus I realize I have two sides: Even if I am not consciously thinking about what I look like. In short. Appropriately so. On the one hand this enables me to function in the adult world and enjoy tremendous benefits.
My abandon and enthusiasm has been replaced by caution and indifference. Playing the Face Game. I am a unique. Now I am a brief flash in a cosmos that by and large pays me no attention. Another person has only to glance at me and I feel under inspection or on show.
I repress from consciousness my own point of view. I am sure I am face to face with others. Stage Three. The stress that arises from seeing myself only from outside.
Something is missing. All my relationships and responses are based on this view of myself.
I couldn't be a member of society if I were not self-conscious. I search everywhere for the peace I vaguely remember knowing as an innocent baby — and the lightness. I am also aware I have an appearance — I still recognize myself in the mirror! I know I am an individual in society with a special contribution to make.
When I start living in conscious awareness of Who I really am. I identify automatically with my appearance.

When I look in the mirror I have no doubt I am that person. On the road towards adulthood. So deeply am I convinced I am what I look like that I dismiss as mad the idea of having no head. From being everything. As a baby I enjoyed being the timeless centre and owner of the world. My view of myself at centre where I am no-thing. I am now aware of being an individual and aware of the adventure of my life.
A veil has fallen over the enchanted. What is important at this stage is recognizing my objective. Though I have not actually lost my spaciousness. Fortunately there is a further stage. Where do I belong? What do I want to do in my life? Stuck in the first stage I would need institutional care. Of course I feel cheated and robbed — I have been. Of course deep down I am afraid — countless swords of Damocles hang over my head.
And so on. The denial and repression of my central spaciousness casts a shadow over my life. The loss of Who I really am affects every area of my life. I have shrunk from being capacity for all things stage one to being just one thing up against all other things stage two. I realize there is a difference between what I am for others and what I am for myself.
Stage Two. No wonder if I feel abandoned and excluded. I identify with my appearance and ignore being capacity. I feel as though I have — without quite knowing what I have lost.
I am not a bird. The truth shall set you free. Just one teaspoon of my blood contains about 25 billion red blood cells. Trace the ancestry of any cell in my body and you would eventually arrive back at the original fertilized ovum. Using her instruments she enters this cellular society that I am.
I discover the infinite wisdom and goodness of my True Nature. The largest kind of cell. Old cells in my body are replaced with new ones at a rate of millions per second. Each type of cell in my body has a different job. Life expectancy depends on the type of cell — my liver cells.
As I experiment living in conscious awareness of Who I really am. Seeing that all things are within me I realize I am infinitely rich.
She discovers that at close quarters I am a community of cells. Stationed several feet away my observer finds I am a person. What does she tell me about my life at this level? My body contains about thousand billion cells that belong to about different types.
Armed with a microscope she approaches to see what I am made of. All my behaviour begins in my central nothingness and translates upwards through my layers into my human region and beyond.
Stepping back further she finds these many atoms joining into one molecule. As she moves towards me she finds my individual human body breaks down into my billions of cellular bodies. I am one yet I am many. It is by working together in community that many individuals at one level rise to the status of the individual at the next level. First she sees one individual in her field of view.
She notes that my identity evolves to higher and higher levels the further she retreats from my central nothingness. At their own level my cells know nothing about me typing about them. Step back and I am billions of cells working together. The answer lies in the relationship between these two levels of myself. Yet at the human level I know about my cells. As my observer retreats. Vertical Movement. This two-way vertical movement through my regions. It is because I can take up the mobile viewpoint of my observer as she moves from my human level to my cellular level and back.
And pulling away from the cell she finds it is a cell-in-community. If my observer were then to reverse her direction she would discover my particles becoming atoms.
Station yourself at close range and I am a cell going about my own business. Everything I do as a human being is also done by my cells. Pulling away from a single atom she finds other atoms coming into view. In the first instance she moves horizontally around me. My observer's vertical movement.
How do they know what to do? The level of behaviour an observer encounters depends on the range at which she intercepts my actions. Parts And Wholes My observer can either investigate what I am on a particular level. Step back even further and I am a person. Each of my cells doing its own job. The closer she approaches my central nothingness. I who am here at the centre of all my regions see that at centre I am indeed nothing at all.
Pulling away from that molecule she finds it is part of a community of molecules that. I lift a finger and billions of them act. Seen through her eyes and microscope.
But look further. All my actions as a human being can be 'explained' in terms of cellular activity. As she moves away she finds my billions of cellular bodies coalesce and build up into my one human body. If she were to penetrate further inwards she would discover my cellular bodies breaking down into molecules.
My behaviour at the human level is continually being translated downwards or analyzed into my behaviour as billions of cells. Certainly cells are very good at getting on with what they have to do.
At this range she is taking up the viewpoint of one of my cells and finds herself capacity for me as a cell. This assumption is supported by the fact that my central emptiness is not simply the source of my human appearance but is the source of every one of my appearances. At this range she is cells. Cells are primitive animals. I can test this by looking through a microscope at my observer. I am my neighbours. Thus to look here is to see the True Nature not only of myself as a person but of myself as a cell too.Thus I rise from the status of a person to that of a species when I enter the society of species and become self-conscious.
Even closer and we would practically lose each other.
I do not yet have language. The nature of man is a baffling and inexhaustible topic, about which I do not wish to dogmatize. Headless, I am capacity for my world — without knowing any other way of being. At this range my mind view out and body view in are human. I search everywhere for the peace I vaguely remember knowing as an innocent baby — and the lightness. Our guest, Hanan Samet, is an undisputed guru in the field of multi-dimensional and spatial data structures and mathematical techniques for sorting spatial information.
I can test this by looking through a microscope at my observer.
