I was more interested in what happens when he gets back to the U.S.A. He joins the Summit Lighthouse and adds "decrees" to his spiritual practice of meditation. Decrees are a scientific way the Masters teach of calling to God and the Heavenly Host using the power of the spoken word.
Gene buys a beautiful piece of land in Vermont and describes how he turned it into a spiritual retreat and establishes a business there raising fish for area restaurants frequented by tourists. His attunement with the Presence of God in his life gives him the impetus to go to town one day, where he meets the woman he will later marry. Because of his daily meditations and calls to the archangels, he has some very intense experiences in which his life is actually saved by Archangel Michael, who alerts him that he needs to call immediately for protection, for the Heavenly Host cannot intervene in people's lives without being invited; and there is, in fact, an impending collision around the next corner. He was injured, but he could have been killed. There is another incident when his backhoe rolls over as he was digging a pond on his property wherein he would have been crushed, but instead finds himself miraculously standing on the sidelines.
Gene O'Neil is very enthusiastic about the Temple of the Presence, where the Ascended Masters have begun anew since the Messenger of the Summit Lighthouse retired. He prints several of the decrees in the book that he hopes will be good starts for the reader to experiment with.
"An Upraised Chalice" is a very inspirational story by an individual who, in attunement with the God-Flame in his own heart, takes responsibility for his challenges and doesn't settle for anything less than God Himself would want for his beloved sons and daughters in embodiment, (which includes us all, of course) and it will assure the reader that God and the angels and Ascended Masters are more available for practical interventions in the lives of those who connect with them than you may have thought possible. The key seems to be that ongoing connection that he maintains with daily meditation and verbal calls. I was inspired to begin a program of regular meditation after reading this book!
The author takes us on a tour de force of self-discovery, physical stamina, and a spiritual quest culminating in some extraordinary experiences in his later years. On the way we stop and share with him some of the sacredness of many of the holy sites and shrines he visits. He shares with us the fruit of this path of self discovery and some encouragement and signposts we too can benefit from on our own.
Hurrah for a remarkable story of one man's quest for spiritual enlightenment and for sharing it.
