Dune and the Inner Journey: The Messiah Consciousness and the Secret of Sacred Oil

"‘The Soul Floats in the Cerebrospinal Fluid (CSF)’ - Dr. Randolph Stone

The second film of the Dune series, penned by the renowned American author Frank Patrick Herbert, made a striking entry into the local box office scene. Legendary Entertainment, which acquired the television and big-screen rights of Frank Herbert's Dune novel in 1965, embarked on a re-adaptation project, with the acclaimed Oscar-nominated director Denis Villeneuve at the helm. Starring Timothée Chalamet, Zendaya, and Rebecca Ferguson, the film narrates the story of the birth of a Messiah. For those unfamiliar, it's worth noting that the film currently consists of two series: Dune: Desert Planet 1 and Dune: Desert Planet 2. Reports have also surfaced indicating that the script for the third installment is in progress.

Now, delving into the story of the film: Set in a distant future, Dune focuses on the journey of our protagonist Paul Atreides, whose family controls the desert planet Arrakis. Across the galaxy, planets are ruled by rival feudal families. The control of Arrakis, the sole producer of the highly valuable resource 'spice,' is highly coveted among noble families. Referred to as 'melange,' this resource offers heightened consciousness and a longer lifespan. Additionally, it facilitates interstellar navigation. Our protagonist's family falls into a trap set by their feudal rivals, the Harkonnen family, resulting in the disintegration of Paul's family and their transition into fugitives. Supporters of Paul await a savior among the Fremen, the inhabitants of the desert planet Arrakis. According to prophecy, the Messiah is the one who will lead them to true freedom. In my book titled 'Will You Be My Role Partner?' translated into German as 'Erwecke Den Helden In Dir' (Awaken the Hero Within You!), I expound on Joseph Campbell's hero's journey, which perfectly mirrors Paul's transformation into Muad'Dib, the Messiah of his time. His ability to summon and ride the grandest worm of Arrakis and consume the life-sustaining fluid, the sacred secretion of a worm found in the temple, marks crucial milestones in his journey towards becoming the Messiah. But what exactly does the concept of the Messiah entail? Does it refer to a chosen individual who will save only a specific group? Or does it allude to a collective experience that will rescue humanity from the darkness it finds itself in?

The term 'Messiah' originates from the Hebrew word meaning 'anointed with holy oil.' In European languages, variations of the Greek-derived term 'Christos,' which means 'anointed with holy oil' or 'sanctified,' are used. Names like Christ and Cristos are derivatives of the Greek word Christos. So, where does this oil that transforms an ordinary individual into a hero or savior reside?

The concept of sacred oil or secretion has intrigued individuals and cultures throughout the ages. This mystical substance is often associated with divine and supernatural concepts, offering those who possess it the potential for divinity, spiritual liberation, or connection to the supernatural. It's fair to acknowledge that the concept of sacred secretion has emerged in various cultures and traditions. Hinduism summarizes this concept with the term 'Amrita,' representing the divine nectar that bestows immortality and enlightenment. Similarly, Buddhism describes the sacred secretion through the concept of 'Ambrosia,' heralding enlightenment and liberation from suffering. In Greek mythology, 'Ambrosia,' the nectar reserved for the gods, promises immortality to those who consume it. Zeus, while seeking refuge from his father Kronos on the island of Crete, was nourished by honey and the milk of a sacred goat accompanied by fairies named Mellissa. From Christianity's 'Holy Grail' to alchemy's 'Philosopher's Stone,' the concept of a special essence holding the key to spiritual metamorphosis and enlightenment has persisted as a motif sought after across cultures and ages.

It's worth noting that the concept of sacred secretion is reiterated in the narratives of the Bible. For instance, the Old Testament frequently mentions anointing oil, a precious substance used to consecrate kings and priests. According to biblical accounts, this oil is imbued with divine power that bestows special blessings upon those anointed with it. So, where is this oil that has been preserved through the ages and features in myths located?

The Sacred Oil lies within us! It floats in the cerebrospinal fluid inside our spinal cord, awaiting activation. It is secreted by the sacred claustrum or 'Santa Claus' claustrum by the brain. After being secreted by the brain/claustrum, it differentiates in the Pineal and Pituitary glands. These glands are known as Joseph and Mary.

The Pineal gland secretes a masculine electrical part known as 'honey,' while the Pituitary gland releases a feminine magnetic part known as 'milk.' This is the land where milk and honey flow.

Both glands slightly differentiate this sacred fluid. While the Pineal gland (masculine) imparts electrical properties to it, the Pituitary gland (feminine) imparts magnetic properties. It's said that the fluid from the Pineal gland is yellow, while the secretion from the Pituitary gland is white. These distinct secretions flow downward from both glands through the pathway of the lunar ganglia and descend through the spine, ultimately producing a seed in the solar plexus. In yoga literature, this sacred fluid, ignited by the divine breath or divine fire known as Kundalini, enlightens the individual, transforming them into an immortal. If humans were to live as they should, the seed would ascend upwards towards the promised lands, reaching the brain region where milk and honey flow. This 'anointed' seed (anointed with spinal oil) would then ascend further towards the skull. By illuminating the Crown chakra, it would open the gates of Olympus, the gates to the realm of the immortals.

This oil, if not wasted, illuminates the body, serving as the lamp. It's the sacred oil that bestows consciousness, and thus, light. If one were to live in this sacred state, the seed would be saved every month, and after twelve months of salvation, you would experience a real anointment; the saved oil, rather than being externally anointed with olive oil on your head, would be poured onto your brain, anointed by God. This would lead you to the Messiah Consciousness.

In summary, the story of the Messiah is not so much about an external Messiah who will save us but rather about the Messiah within each of us that needs to awaken.
