What is Fire?

Most dictionaries will provide a definition along the lines of it being a process in which substances combine chemically with oxygen from the air and typically give out bright light, heat, and smoke; combustion or burning. Indeed, well before electricity we used fire by way of the naked flame, be it candle, lanterns, fires, etc, because it provided light and warmth when the environment was cold and dark.

From this we could say that as humans some of the physical properties we know and love about fire, ever since ancient times and universally across the world, is that it keeps us warm and it casts great light.

And this is also true for Fire when we are referring to it as an energetic state of being because as humans we have two sources of energy of which we can align to and these are Fire (Soul) or prana (spirit).

As such there are two teachings that are very important for our health, well-being and evolution to understand and they are:

  1. the difference between Soul and spirit

  2. the difference between Fire and prana

Fire is our Soulful expression and what we are here on Earth to express and evolve back to. Whilst prana is also Divine, has its purpose and is needed by our physical body in small amounts, it is harmful in excessive expression and a great reduction to our true fiery state of being. It should also be noted that excess prana carries its own type of ‘heat’ that may make us feel ‘warm’ in a sense but is energetically cold when compared to true Fire.

Considering that Fire is our true Soul-full expression and Unimedpedia exposes how language has been bastardised – we can’t help but note how fire has been associated with the devil and hell.

There is no such person as the devil and no such place as hell other than the hell we create for ourselves when we do not express in fire.

"If you feel the fire you are truly from – you will not ever subscribe to the pranic life and thus not be fooled by it."

Serge Benhayon The Living Sutras of the Hierarchy, p 179

The audio below presents how our evolution is to come back to a Fiery Consciousness and how we need to have a healthy relationship between fire and prana.

Relationship between Fire and prana

The truth about our energetic make-up

Fire is the undying light and love of God – the eternal flame of love that burns within us all. And just as the sun does not extinguish itself at the close of the day, so too does the inner flame of our love never dwindle nor die.

Where we have strayed as a humanity is in our attraction to and overconsumption of prana which has led to us becoming physically and energetically quite dense, and in this state we can find it difficult to reconnect to the love and light of our Soul (Fire).

"All life is the result of energy and thus, we have a choice as to what energy we use in what we do, say and how we think. That choice is either prana or fire
You cannot have both!"

Serge Benhayon The Living Sutras of the Hierarchy, p 374

The huge difference between Fire and prana

Everything in life is defined by the quality of the energy it comes from and that energy is either healing or harming.

"It’s very simple –
Choose fire and know all about it by the fact of the Universe –
or choose astral energy and know all about it by the fact of all that the Universe is not."

Serge Benhayon Esoteric Teachings & Revelations II, p 404

Is it astral or fire?

Both astral and fiery energy can make you feel you are bigger than your body however there is a huge difference between the two.

From these teachings we come to the understanding that our task here together is to stop seeking excess prana and thus all that keeps us so cold, dense and living in separation to our Soul, and return instead to our natural and normal fiery Soul-full expression.

And if ever we needed reminding that we are of such magnificent light, we need only look up at the Heavens and see the great fiery orb in the sky we have come to know as our sun and understand that it has been perfectly placed to remind us of the truth of who we each in essence are – our warmth, our light, our glow and all that we emanate and ignite forth into the world when we live with true Fire.

"The fact that the eternal flame of love burns brightly and eternally within is immutable, yet we CHOOSE to not feel it and instead re-create a lesser or false essence that is everything but the fire we originally come from. Furthermore, and in the greatest irony that man holds, by all loving laws, we cannot ever leave nor separate from the eternal flame and thus from God. Hence, with this immutable fact in mind, it is mere CHOICE to choose to connect and thus know that eternal flame. However, and whilst these words can go on and on about the fact that the eternal flame is within and that God is always and forever there etc, it is most definitely not the experience of every human being. Much of this sad fact is ode to what we have today, which comes from our many lives lived in the waywardness of our spirit and thus, what it has left behind in this world we have to come back to until we get it harmoniously right. The lack of God in our lives leaves us less and, we have to come back to that less. Forget this not."

Serge Benhayon The Living Sutras of the Hierarchy, p 377
