Real Karma

Real Karma

I am amazed at this strange doctrine concerning Karma not being real that has surfaced in the new age community over the past few years and am curious where it has come from. All the sages past have taught the principle of cause and effect. It is plainly taught in all the scriptures of the world and in modern inspired books by Blavatsky, Alice A Bailey and even the Course in Miracles. Is there some new recent channeled work that I am unaware of that brings forth this great illusion? If anyone could cite some reference here it may help me understand where this teaching is coming from and why it is so easily believed. Or is it possible that many are just creating their own version of belief in Karma associated with a desire to escape effect?

I think however we are beginning to make sense out of a recent post. Misapplied teachings of karma have indeed been used to enslave the minds of many.

There is great illusion being derived here from the comparison of karma to the statement of Newton’s Law. The potential correspondence is accurate, but the correspondence must be seen as it is.

Where is the illusion then?

In Newton’s law, as well as cause and effect which is basically Newton’s law, like creates like.

The Law states that for every action there is an equal and opposite reaction. Note that it DOES NOT say that the opposite reaction is a different type of force than that created by the action but an “equal” one. The word “opposite” refers to the direction of the force, not the force itself.

I was asked what is the opposite of Love. This question has nothing to do with the true point we are discussing. Why? Because when the initiating cause is love in the direction of another human being we then have the effect (karma) of love coming back to us from an opposite direction. Sending out force does not cause something other than force to return and sending out love does not return hate. But the opposite involved is not the opposite of love or force, but the opposition involved is in direction. Love begets love, force begets force, hate begets hate.

Question: What is the opposite of Karma?

Answer: Oblivion, lifelessness, voidness, nothingness, deadness, no creation, no love – the opposite of Becoming. If this appeals to you then go for it but for the life of me I cannot see the attractiveness of it in this reality.

Now some say that cause and effect are happening at the same time in a higher reality where there is no time. This may be true but still it does not negate karma. I submit that the Eternal Now is not timelessness as many teach, but a consciousness that allows time selection. If their were true timelessness as some believe then nothingness would be the result and the higher worlds are far from being nothing.

Now some associate karma with guilt, but guilt is created by illusion, a trick of the mind caused by an outside entity or voice that takes the place of the true god within. Outside voices can be very deceptive, but again, even with this we have a cause and effect. An outside voice causes you to believe you are to trust in the voice of God out there and that you need to hang your head in shame when commands are not followed.

Let us take a Mormon and a non religious person drinking coffee together. The good Mormon will feel very guilty about it, but the other guy will feel no guilt even though they are doing the same thing. The true basic effect on them physically is the same.

However, one feels guilty because he erroneously believes he is displeasing God and the other feels no guilt. Because guilt is created by illusionary cause it can instantly disappear as soon as the illusion is removed.

In this way Christ removed our sins for he dispelled much illusion that removed us from effects of karma that we never had in the first place.

Imagine that the Mormon authorities told the church that they could now drink coffee. Instantly, all guilt surrounding this act of coffee drinking would be erased, but the real effect from the hot liquid and caffeine would remain the same as before in the real world.

On the other hand, the effect of missing out on a lot of enjoyable coffee drinking is a residual effect through decision to accept illusionary cause.

Now some of you are saying that karma exists merely because we believe in it. The only way karma is altered by belief is when belief initiates a new cause and produces a new effect. It does not negate a past effect, but joins in with it.

Let us say a person throws a stone in a stagnate pool and it creates a rippling of waves. Now I have a second stone that I will label as a cause created by belief and I throw it in where the ripples are. Does this nullify the previous effects?

No. The ripples are still there from the first stone.

Does the new stone create an overall new effect?

Yes.

Is there any way that you can use belief only to cause all the ripples to instantly disappear?

No.

If you desire a still pool what are you to do?

Answer: Wait for the forces to play themselves out. There is no other way. As the forces are playing themselves out you might want to make the best of it and throw a leaf in the midst and watch it dance upon the forces until stillness arrives.

NOTE: It is interesting that I wrote this just before I read Geoffrey’s words as follows:

“Those who believe that karma does not exist are right……if you are looking far enough into the future. Take a tank of water for an example Drop a stone into the water and run away. Come back at the end of time and you will see no effect of dropping the stone into the water. The water is calm. No karma! Drop a stone into the water and watch the effect. Waves crash across the surface and hit the edge and return and collide with other waves. Plenty of karma here.”

This is an excellent use of the Law of Correspondences. The time will indeed come when all karma will be played out and we will enter into a peaceful rest to contemplate the experience. But then we will plunge again into the rippling world of cause and effect and play the game one more time, but a little wiser than before.

If karma, cause and effect, is caused by belief only then why does it exist on the surface of Mars where there is no intelligent life or belief?

Why does karma exist in the animal kingdom for animals have no beliefs? Some say that karma exists because we see ourselves as separate. Yet the animals see themselves as interconnected yet still experience the effects of karma.

DK basically said that among primitive man for millions of years the animals were the ones that dominated the human kingdom. Early man lived in constant fear of ferocious animals and there was a great struggle on the part of the human kingdom just to stay alive in their midst. Many there were who had friends and family killed and eaten by the beasts.

Now DK says that this situation which lasted for eons created a karma within the animal kingdom that is being played out today. Now the situation is reversed and humans are a threat to the animals rather than animals being a threat to humans. He says this karma is the true reason that we presently kill animals for food. When this karma has played out then there will be a balance achieved between the human and animal kingdoms and both shall live together with greater harmony.

DK also says there is karma in the very elements of the earth itself, an effect from the previous solar system. Our personal belief would have nothing to do with this residual effect from billions of years hence.

A reader makes a statement that could explain the differing views here:

“Karma is the perceived effect. The perceived cause is an action with which one associates themselves. In other words, you have carried the accumulated effects of a past experience into the present.”

JJ: If we define karma as that which is perceived then a change in perception can give the illusion of negating karma.

For instance if Jim wants to give me an anonymous gift and gives it to Jane to give to me I will erroneously perceive that the gift originated with her. The true fact is that the cause of the gift was Jim no matter what my perceptions were. If my perception is changed incorrectly and I see that the gift did not originate with Jane but perceive it to be from Jack that does not negate the true cause. This true cause is still Jim no matter what my perceptions are.

True karma is actual cause and effect, not perceived cause and effect. We daily experience the effects of many causes of which we are consciously unaware of and which have nothing to do with our individual belief system.

A while back I perceived myself typing the word “the,” but instead typed “tghe.” My perception did not create the reality, but my lack of focus and cause on the physical plane did. I believed at first I typed the word correctly, but belief did not alter reality.

In fact, the alteration of reality and the creation of misperception of cause and effect is a technique used in brainwashing. In the book 1984 we read of many alterations by Big Brother, but instead of creating a new pleasant reality the result was instead hell on earth.

Some say there is no real karma here because this world is just a larger dream state and when we awaken from the dream we will discover the karma never was.

First let me state that this is a very long dream. Creation on the physical plane has been ongoing for billions of years and since we have been and will be involved for such extensive periods then perhaps it is in our interests to make this a “happy dream” as the Course in Miracles calls it.

It is in the nature of all conscious beings to dream on a regular basis. One who is deprived of the dream state becomes insane. Dreaming in one form or another is something we will do on and off as long as there is existence,.

Even a dream has a cause and then within the dream itself there are causes and effects. When I have a good dream with good causes and effects (karma) I often reflect upon it during the next day or so and feel that it adds to my quality of life. Thus even if it turns out that this life is like a dream we will still take the experience with us to a greater reality and this life will be a cause to ongoing effects in higher realms.

DK describes the coming liberation from physical life as follows:

“Respond, O Rising One, to the call which comes within the sphere of obligation; recognize the call emerging from the Ashram or from the Council Chamber where waits the Lord of Life Himself. The Sound goes forth. Both soul and form together must renounce the Principle of life and thus Permit the Monad to stand free. The soul responds. The form then shatters the connection. Life is now liberated, owning the quality of conscious knowledge and the fruit of all experience. These are the gifts of soul and form combined.” Esoteric Healing, Pages 535-536

JJ: Note that in this liberation form reality is not forgotten for he says we will then own “the quality of conscious knowledge and the fruit of all experience. These are the gifts of soul and form combined.”

“The quality of conscious knowledge and the fruit of all experience” is thus good karma (effect) that we take with us to the higher planes. Belief has nothing to do with it. Attachment has nothing to do with it and judgment has nothing to do with it. You will just take this “fruit” with you even though you will be free from attachments at that distant time.

Now those of us here in this group are far from having the connection shattered with form so it is best to plow with the horses we do gave rather than dreaming of riding the tractor we do not have. If we merely dream of riding the tractor we do not have we will cease being a cause in this reality, but if we plow with the horses we have cause will be generated and the effect will be a plowed field. Maybe it will not be plowed as quickly as we can dream of doing it on a tractor, but at least it will be plowed in real life and preparation is made to eat the real fruit of the vine.

The First Law

The First Law

The law of Karma is the Law of Cause and Effect. There can be no cause unless there is a corresponding effect for that is what a cause is. The first definition of a cause in The American Heritage Dictionary is: “The producer of an effect, result, or consequence.”

The same dictionary gives as the first definition of effect as: “Something brought about by a cause or an agent; a result.”

Therefore, by definition there can be no effect without cause and there can be no cause without producing an effect.

Now some have said that Karma, or the Law of Cause and Effect, can be negated or eliminated.

Some say that it only exists because we are attached to it or because we have judgment within us. Others say that we merely must rise above the illusion of this world and Karma will cease.

Do you realize what it would mean to escape karma to the extent that karma would no longer exist?

If karma no longer exists for you this means you would cease to exist. Non-existence is to have no power to initiate cause and effect. And non existence is impossible; therefore, total escape from karma is impossible. If you are beyond cause and effect you are beyond the power to even be alive.

DK through Alice A. Bailey tells us that the Masters do not eliminate the Law of Karma. Instead they learn to “wield the law.” In other words, they create causes so the effects that result are desired effects rather than undesirable ones. In this way they are free from unpredictable karma. In other words, they are no longer victims of the law as regular humanity is.

A regular human in his use of karma is a little like a novice going to Las Vegas to gamble at blackjack. The odds are against him because he does not understand the game and does not realize that because of his ignorance the longer he plays the more he will lose. He who learns to master karma is a little like the master gambler who learns how to count the cards which will give him control over the game. In both cases the law of cause and effect is in full force, but in the latter case the Master Gambler uses the law instead of being used by the law.

Is cause and effect only applicable in the worlds of form?

Answer: It would have to be applicable in all worlds because the worlds of form are an effect of energy which was an originating cause before the worlds were created.

In the beginning there was God and God Itself was a cause and creation is the effect. Thus the first act of the invisible God was the exercise of cause and effect.

To those who say they can exist apart from karma, let me put forth this challenge.

I can show you billions of examples of karma (cause and effect). But can you show me even one example of anything that is real that creates no cause and effect? It takes a tremendous leap of faith to believe so strongly in that for which no example can be given. Why would someone believe in a place beyond cause and effect if such a place cannot be demonstrated internally or externally??? You can in deep meditation attempt to withdraw into perfect stillness, but even this meditation (cause) has the effect of peace or stillness of thought.

Not only does logic, experience and the Law of Correspondences bear witness to the eternal existence of cause and effect but all the writings revealed by the teachings of the Masters as well as the scriptures agree.

The Bible:

“For every man shall bear his own burden. Let him that is taught in the word communicate unto him that teacheth in all good things. Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap. For he that soweth to his flesh shall of the flesh reap corruption; but he that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting. And let us not be weary in well doing: for in due season we shall reap, if we faint not.” Gal 6:5-9

Note here that Karma extends beyond the physical for it says: “He that soweth to the Spirit shall of the Spirit reap life everlasting.”

From The Book of Mormon:

“For it must needs be, that there is an opposition in all things. If not so, my first-born in the wilderness, righteousness could not be brought to pass, neither wickedness, neither holiness nor misery, neither good nor bad. Wherefore, all things must needs be a compound in one; wherefore, if it should be one body it must needs remain as dead, having no life neither death, nor corruption nor incorruption, happiness nor misery, neither sense nor insensibility.

“Wherefore, it must needs have been created for a thing of naught; wherefore there would have been no purpose in the end of its creation. Wherefore, this thing must needs destroy the wisdom of God and his eternal purposes, and also the power, and the mercy, and the justice of God.

“And if ye shall say there is no law, ye shall also say there is no sin. If ye shall say there is no sin, ye shall also say there is no righteousness. And if there be no righteousness there be no happiness. And if there be no righteousness nor happiness there be no punishment nor misery. And if these things are not there is no God. And if there is no God we are not, neither the earth; for there could have been no creation of things, neither to act nor to be acted upon; wherefore, all things must have vanished away.” II Nephi 2:11-13

Note that without karma, cause and effect there would be no creation, no you and me and no God for God is the First Cause, the first agent of karma.

A Course In Miracles:

“If I intervened between your thoughts and their results, I would be tampering with a basic law of cause and effect; the most fundamental law there is.” Text Pg 27

“Think not you understand anything until you pass the test of perfect peace, for peace and understanding go together and never can be found alone. 5 Each brings the other with it, for it is the law of God they be not separate. 6 They are cause and effect, each to the other, so where one is absent the other cannot be.”

Text Pg 278

“ Nothing can have effects without a cause, and to confuse the two is merely to fail to understand them both.” Text Pg 420

Alice A Bailey;

“As I write this instruction I would call your attention to the subject of karma. There comes ever in the life of a disciple and in the soul’s experience some one particular life wherein the Law of Cause and Effect assumes importance in the consciousness. From that life and that moment, the disciple begins to deal with karma, consciously and definitely. He learns to recognize it when events and happenings come which require understanding and which evoke questioning; he begins to study the quality of his radiation as a karmic agent, and therefore he becomes the maker and constructor, in a new and important sense, of his own destiny and future. His reactions to life and circumstances cease to be simply emotional in nature and become deliberately dictated by conscious observation; they then have in them a significant quality of preparation which is absent from the life of the average man. For the remainder of this life, therefore, I would ask you to carry the theme of karmic decision and of preparation for the future ever in your consciousness; I would ask you always to take action with as full an understanding of the probable following effects as you can manage to achieve, and to make a real effort to study the Law of Consequence and Compensation.”

“It is not my intention to explain or elaborate the subject of Karma. This occult yet fundamentally exoteric theme, the Law of Cause and Effect, evokes a general recognition when called by this name. When called the Law of Karma, it is immediately regarded as mysterious, Oriental and new. Called (as it sometimes is) the Law of Retribution, an entirely erroneous connotation has become attached to it. Today, the karma of humanity is descending upon it. I would remind you, however, that the continuous emphasis laid upon the malevolent aspects of karma conveys a wrong impression and negates the full grasp of the truth. There is as much good karma as there is bad; even in the present world situation, the good karma emanating from the soul of humanity balances the evil which comes from the material aspect and is continuously over-emphasised. It is the rhythm of matter in contradistinction to the rhythm of the soul, and these constitute the initiating causes of the present conflict, both in individual lives and in the general world situation. When this is properly grasped, the true picture may emerge in your hearts and minds with greater clarity.”

“A steady endeavour to see the reality in every form. This literally involves a study of the law of cause and effect, or karma, the object of the karmic law being to bring the opposite pole of Spirit, matter, into strict conformity with the requirements of spirit so that matter and form can perfectly express the nature of spirit.” Discipleship in the New Age, Vol II, Pages 538-539

JJ: DK goes on to tell us that the earth is not a sacred planet because Sanat Kumara himself is somewhat of a rebel from a cosmic point of view and has some effects (karma) that he must deal with before the planet can take the needed initiation.

Even high entities who have learned to use the law of karma in a positive sense cannot let their guard down, for one of the Kumaras that came to the earth with the Ancient of Days (called Lucifer by Christians) fell from his lofty station when he did not wield the law with wisdom.

The Perfect Circle

 

The Perfect Circle

Samu continues to give some great answers here so we’ll pick on him again. Keep in mind here we are talking about the universe in the physical reality.

JJ: Now the big mystery among scientists is this. The universe is expanding and they are amazed that each galaxy is moving away from every other galaxy at a uniform speed.

Question: Could this correspond to growth of a living body.

Samu: Indeed it could. At embryo stage cells first grow in size, after which they grow in number. When the cells are ‘old enough’, they specialize to play their part in a specific organ performing a certain bodily function, joining with other cells with same vision, much like human beings finding their place in society and groups after they’ve grown up. I don’t see why it would be any different for galaxies within the universe, looking for their special spot.

Good answer Samu. You are using the Law of Correspondences here.

The big question among scientists is whether or not the universe will ever cease expanding or just expand forever.

Using the Law of Correspondences what would the answer be?

Samu: The human body grows in physical size until it reaches adulthood, then the development takes place on other dimensions of existence, inner spheres expanding. We start forming relationships, become intimate and interactive, so to speak. This would indicate that the universe ceases expanding physically one day, after which it starts developing its head and heart qualities, and starts associating with other universes over time. This is an interesting thought, because I used to think the physical expansion too was never-ending. Hmmmm. I guess then that would only be if our universe planned on becoming over-weight, one pound at a time; Before the end of a human lifetime, most of us give birth to offspring. Correlate this to universal life… Very interesting.

JJ: Earlier we talked about what would stop the expansion of the universe. Can you remember what it is and what this corresponds to in the atomic universe?

Question: What does this tell you about the association of one universe with another?

Samu: That it’s very loose at this stage of development. Like being aware of the existence of each other, without knowing what the relationship really consciously could mean in all of its possibilities. I can sense somebody being out there, but who and why? Got to find out whos and whys of oneself before it makes sense to reach out ones hand in order to offer friend and partnership, ya know 🙂

JJ: Let me add this. We concluded that according to the Law of Correspondences the universe is in its infancy.

Now the distance from our solar system to the even the nearest star boggles the mind. It takes light just a couple seconds to reach the moon, a little over eight minutes to reach the sun, but four and a half years to reach Alpha Centauri our nearest neighbor.

Now on a higher scale we are a dot in the Milky Way galaxy which has up to 400,000,000,000 solar systems and the distance to our nearest galactic neighbor boggles the mind even more. The nearest galaxy to us takes light over a million years to reach us.

Now the Hubble telescope has spotted galaxies about 20 billion light years away. This is causing scientists to recalculate the time of the Big Bang which they thought was only 14 billion years ago,. I submit that the universe may be much bigger and older than scientists believe.

(Note: back at the turn of the millennium there were reports of galaxies spotted being 20 million light years away. Now the claim is that 13 billion light years is the furthest)

Now let us suppose we could go to the edge of the universe and look out in the void. What would we see?

Answer:

Nothing.

Why?

Two reasons. First the nearest universe would be so far away it would only seem a dot at best.

Secondly, the nearest universe would be so far away that it’s light could virtually never reach us. All the universes in the greater universe would come and go a thousand times before light could ever be received. That would be how vast the distances would be by the Law of Correspondences.

Thus we see that through the use of this Law that the universe is an infant very alone in a great void receiving no physical light from any source. As it grows to self awareness it’s first external question will be: “Am I alone?”

Correspondingly this is the question mankind is now asking. Are we alone? Are there any other intelligent species out there amidst the billions of star systems?

Question: Why is it that we are not a pimple on someone’s giant nose as some think?

No one answered this yet. Any guesses?

Does the Law of Correspondences suggest that there is a certain number to all things including the worlds within the universe of universes? Could that number be the true number for pi?

Samu:

How many galaxies can I fit in a universe with the volume of xyz? Or is there a constant number, a natural constant, for the distance between galaxies that they gravitate towards? But I still can’t see how 3,141592654 could somehow be connected to the number of worlds? Maybe I’m misunderstanding something here. Could you please elaborate JJ?

JJ: As I was writing about this subject the number for pi flashed in my mind. I realize this number is produced by dividing the circumference of a circle by its diameter and at first glance does not seem to have any cosmic significance. On the other hand, the circle is the one constant symbol that reappears everywhere in creation. Therefore this one constant number that comes from the circle could be some type of final number. It could be something like the number of atoms within the universe itself.

Super computers have figured this number out to a million digits and still haven’t arrived at the final one. Here are the first thousand or so digits.

Remember that are about a million more digits discovered and still mathematicians have not discovered the final pi.

Think on this. If God is ever to create a perfect circle then He would have to have the exact number for pi, for without it a perfect circle is impossible making the perfection of God impossible. It would be fitting that this ultimate number of perfection was also the number of particles in creation. This would correspondingly mean that there is the perfect number of atoms in existence.

Question from yesterday: Now everyone says that the number of creations are infinite, but because everyone believes this does not make it true.

Does the Law of Correspondences suggest that there is a certain number to all things including the worlds within the universe of universes?

Now this question may throw some for a loop, but bear with me and consider that which you have not considered before and that is that the universe may not be infinite.

How could it be that the universe does have a specific number of worlds and particles yet to us would seem infinite to the extent that we could never find the end even if we traveled as fast as thought?

This brings us to the next principle of discovery which I will state early.

“Take that belief which is embraced by the world and look in the opposite direction. In this opposite direction much truth lies hidden.”

The world believes the universe in infinite. Let us question this.

The Law of Correspondences

 

The Law of Correspondences

Many have a good general idea of the Law of Correspondences, but few realize the value of this principle in the discovery of truth. In fact it is so important it is one of the Keys of Knowledge and will be expanded upon in the future. Whereas most of the keys present new or lost knowledge this is a key which is widely circulated but merely needs to be understood by humanity. A correct understanding of this key by two people will lead to the union of minds and then to union of souls. A correct understanding will also lead your mind to discoveries only known to the Masters, for even they use it as they progress in knowledge and understanding.

Here is a tributary law in connection with this key.

“Any principle which is true or leads to truth will have enough correspondences to known truth that a resonation will occur with the inner self when such correspondences are contemplated.”

Let us put this Law of Correspondences to use. To discover truth never before realized by humanity. I have hinted at it in my writings, but you may have overlooked it.

Let us correspond from the microcosm to the macrocosm.

The higher correspondence to an atom is a cell. The higher to a cell is a human being. The higher to a human is a solar system. The higher to a solar system is a galaxy. The next step up is an unknown. This would be a universe of galaxies.

Using the Law of Correspondences answer these questions:

How large would the universe be?

What would be its shape?

How complex is its structure and organization?

How evolved is it within its own sphere?

Are there other universes?

Discovering the Universe

Samu stepped forward with some very intelligent answers after contemplating the Law of Correspondences.

Question: How large would the universe be?

Samu: Well, our own galaxy, which is like a cell in the universal body, has a diameter of 100.000 light years. 1 light year is 9,466,411,842,000 kilometers, and if we agree that the orbit of Pluto (5,913,520,000 km from the Sun, average) defines the diameter of our solar system, then we get the ratio 80,040,414 which tells us that the diameter of our galaxy is over 80 million times the diameter of our solar system. It’s my understanding that these ratios grow when the “cells” grow, meaning the ratio between human body and one of its cells is smaller than the one between a galaxy and its solar system, so the diameter of our universe would be way bigger than 80 million times that of our galaxy. HUGE alright.

JJ: Now the big mystery among scientists is this. The universe is expanding and they are amazed that each galaxy is moving away from every other galaxy at a uniform speed.

Question: Could this correspond to growth of a living body?

The big question among scientists is whether or not the universe will ever cease expanding or just expand forever. Using the Law of Correspondences what would the answer be?

Samu: What would be its shape?

Thinking of the shape of our solar system and home galaxy I would like to answer that it’s disc-shaped, but somehow I feel that our solar system only appears disc-shaped to the physical eye (where the disc represents the plane in which the planets revolve around the sun) and is really a sphere, if we could only see all the frequencies of energy forming it.

JJ: Good answer. None of the living bodies are circular. The human for instance is egg shaped. Keep in mind that you have to consider the shape of our aura and outer film to see our true shape. The earth is flattened at the poles. Then the solar system is more flattened still and a galaxy even more so. This would suggest that the universe is not circular, but disked shaped. But since the universe is young compared to a galaxy we would have to look at a young galaxy to get an idea as to its current shape. Thus it may look a little like a cloud coming into the shape of a disc.

Samu: How complex is its structure and organization?

Oh boy…It’s *vast* for sure!!! And complex beyond my comprehension. It’s gotta be, if you compare something from the mineral kingdom, let’s say a crystal to a human being,

and then scale this up to a full universe… wow!

JJ: An atom is very complex. How complex we do not know because we have not unlocked all of its secrets.

The next step up is a cell and we do know that it’s complexity is beyond our imagination.

As far as humans go we are much less complex. Our state of organization in cities and states is very elementary compare to the smaller lives.

As we go larger the complexity is less. A galaxy – the closest unit to the universe is quite simple. The stars circle around a center forming elementary relationships with each other.

This would mean that the organization between the galaxies in the universe is more elementary still. Astronomers have attempted to map sections of the universe and have found evidence of this. They have found elementary associations of groups of galaxies.

Question: What does this tell you about the association of one universe with another?

Why is it that we are not a pimple on someone’s giant nose as some think?

Samu: How evolved is it within its own sphere?

I’d say in its adolescence… Well maybe more like in its infancy, because I think man is only entering adulthood, hah! 🙂

JJ: Good answer when looking at man in relation to this planet, but in relation to the universe he is just a kid playing around. All indications are that the universe itself is a babe.

Samu: Are there other universes?

Sure there are. Countless of them. The mind of God is unlimited, and His creations are infinite, and eternal in their development.

JJ: The Law of Correspondences does suggest there would be other universes. Now everyone says that the number of creations are infinite, but because everyone believes this does not make it true.

Does the Law of Correspondences suggest that there is a certain number to all things including the worlds within the universe of universes? Could that number be the true number for pi?

Solar Questions

Solar Questions

A reader wants clarification on what a previous solar system is.

This may have a correspondence, but a solar system is just a very small part of an island universe (a galaxy) or a universe of galaxies. A solar system is merely one sun with a system of planets. The previous incarnation of our sun and planets were a previous sun and planets vibrating to a different key and color frequencies.

When this ancient system finished its life the form returned to it’s quiescent state and billions of years later was reborn as our current little star system about three quarters of the way from the center of the Milky Way.

Question: Could you elaborate on this statement: “…we lived as composite units through the 21 minor centers that still exist within our bodies.

They still exist in all of us. Here is a tabulation given by DK

“The etheric body is a body composed entirely of lines of force and of points where these lines of force cross each other and thus form (in crossing) centres of energy. Where many such lines of force cross each other, you have a larger centre of energy, and where great streams of energy meet and cross, as they do in the head and up the spine, you have seven major centres. There are seven such, plus twenty-one lesser centres and forty-nine smaller centres known to the esotericists. However, we will confine ourselves at this time to the etheric body as a whole and to the seven major centres. It might be of interest to you, nevertheless, to be told where the twenty-one minor centres are to be found. They can be located at the following points:

“There are two of them in front of the ears close to where the jaw bones are connected.

There are two of them just above the two breasts.

“There is one where the breast bones meet, close to the thyroid gland. This, with the two breast centres, makes a triangle of force.

There are two, one each in the palms of the hands.

“There are two, one each in the soles of the feet.

“There are two, just behind the eyes.

“There are two also connected with the gonads.

“There is one close to the liver.

“There is one connected with the stomach; it is related, therefore, to the solar plexus, but is not identical with it.

“There are two connected with the spleen. These form one centre in reality, but such a centre is formed by the two being superimposed one on the other.

“There are two-one at the back of each knee.

There is one powerful centre which is closely connected with the vagus nerve. This is most potent and is regarded by some schools of occultism as a major centre; it is not in the spine, but is no great distance from the thymus gland.

“There is one which is close to the solar plexus, and relates it to the centre at the base of the spine, thus making a triangle of the sacral centre, the solar plexus, and the centre at the base of the spine.

“The two triangles referred to in this tabulation are of real importance. One is above and the other below the diaphragm.”

Esoteric Healing, Pages 72-73

Question: This is so interesting JJ… (the fact that the first solar system was Third Ray and this one Second Ray) so from this level with the manifestation of a new life form, will that be upon the foundation energy of the First Ray??

JJ: There will be some First Ray (the Ray of Power) manifest but all forms and life in this system have the purpose of manifesting Divine Love. In the near future we will see more First Ray demonstrated than ever before in recorded history, but all the First Ray influence we will perceive will be within the context of one of the seven sub rays of the major Second Ray of Love.

Question: So do the Solar angels thus create the next foundation energy system, say for the future the first ray, by incarnating here and creating from here that future system??

JJ: A common name for the Solar Angel is the Higher Self. Eventually your perfected self will fuse with your Higher Self and evolve through all the higher spheres together as this solar system dies. Then in ages and ages hence a new solar system will come into incarnation on the First Ray of Will-Power-Purpose. In that far future age your new and improved Higher Self will reflect again and nurture its new born baby – a new and improved version of you. In this system the Higher Self teaches and guides us through the knowledge and impulse of Love. But in that future system Love will be known and the connection with the Higher Self will be much more direct and we shall walk in that system as gods compared to this one. Power will become manifested beyond our imagination at this time. There are principles where power can be exercised that our imagination is not even capable of perceiving at present. We must perceive where and how power can be used before power can be desired or sought.

Question: So those that had not progressed and ended up here, would they be what is termed the ‘laggards’ that came here, not originally from here??

JJ: There have been teachings circulated that many of the problem people here are laggards from other solar systems. This is not exactly true. The real laggards are mostly from the previous incarnation of this system, not from other current solar systems.

Generally each solar system takes care of their own problem children with one major exception. There are cases where an initiate came very close to choosing the Dark Path and in taking a detour he developed some very heavy karma. His debt was so great that it was difficult for the entity to pay off what he owed in his system as it leans toward the ways of peace. In this case the reformed brother is in need of a more turbulent world where is will be able to perform the needed service.

Some of our greatest teachers and leaders on this planet are these entities who are now centered on the Spirit, but are obligated to give a great service before they can obtain liberation. They are not laggards, but advanced souls with a debt to pay.

Abraham Lincoln was one of these.

Question: So would it be true to say, that in this second group of initiates (from the previous solar system) are those that have already overcome death in some other system, and thus would be termed ‘masters’ by our expression here…

JJ: Not exactly. Those who are Masters here on this earth have become one with their higher Self and are linked Molecularly. What we know as a Master today did not even exist in that previous system. High initiates there mastered form whereas current Masters are also masters of love and wisdom.

Question: Are the Jews of today all reincarnated from the Jews of yesterday, all the way back to Moses, or even their previous planet?

JJ: Many of the Jews who seem stuck in the ways of the past belong to this group of laggards mentioned earlier and will often incarnate into the Jewish race.

However, many of the Jews from the time of Jesus have incarnated into the Mormon church and some of the Jewish leaders from that time are leaders in the Mormon church today. It is interesting that the Mormons even have their own dead sea, a symbol of their dead works.

Question: Are the lives which comprise the heart and the head (to use your examples) the same in each individual i.e. from the same animal ‘family’?

JJ: The animal lives generally make up the lower four centers and they will be different combinations for different entities.

Our differences are created by many differing causes – our past decisions, our bodies, and the ray and astrological influences. The subject is too vast to cover in detail here.

Lives within the centers are a combination of molecular order and fusion. We shall talk more about the principle of fusion at some future date.

Question: When we die and the etheric body dissipates, what happens to these lives? Do they just go back into some kind of storehouse to be used another time? And tell us more about the lives in the centers.

JJ: You answered your own question here. We leave them behind when entering the spirit world and assume a new but similar group of lives in a future incarnation. Sometimes we will take many of them with us to a future life but not necessarily all.

Your solar plexus center, for example is composed of ten petals which slowly unfold. These are ten lesser lives making a greater life. As each of these ten lives contact and merge with the higher self which is you they unfold like a flower reaching upwards. When all ten unfold then the greater life or molecule of ten become a greater life, but still a part of you. This has the effect of stimulating your consciousness and moving you into experiencing new feelings.

The higher centers are stimulated by your higher self and largely composed of lesser angel lives.

Molecular Qualifications

Molecular Qualifications

Question: Do we have to be perfect as individuals to make the Molecular Relationship happen? If not, how good or close to perfection do we have to be? What is required of us as individuals if we are to begin so great a task?”

We have talked quit a bit about perfection in the past.

Let me just make a quote from a previous post:

There are three Greek words translated as “perfect in the Bible. The two main ones are TELEIOO and AKRIBELA. AKRIBELA is the one equivalent to the way we use “perfect” in our English, especially the way people talk about God. However, in the Bible AKRIBELA was used in a negative way to describe those who crucified Jesus. The religious people of his day believed in AKRIBELA.

The scripture “Be ye therefore perfect even as your Father in Heaven is perfect.” is a mistranslation in almost every Bible available. Why? Because the illusion of perfection is so important for the religious world to maintain.

In this scripture “perfect” is mistranslated from TELEIOO which means “Complete, finish and puts forth the idea of finishing a job or goal that you have.”

Now let’s translate this verse correctly as Jesus meant it:

“Therefore finish (or complete) the work you are given to do even as your Father in Heaven completes His.”

Isn’t the true rendering the more practical advice?”

The scriptures do not teach us to be perfect as the word is understood today. Even God is not called perfect. Instead we are told that God works at His job until it is successfully completed and we are to do the same.

When an artist paints a great work of art he makes many mistakes between the beginning and the end. But when the work is finished and the artist sees the work is beautiful he forgets about all the mistakes in the past and enjoys basking in his completed (TELEIOO) work.

Many people wait until they are near perfection in learning before they will begin a new project. This often causes not only a waste of time but also many missed opportunities.

I have found the best way to learn is on the job. Just plunge in and do and learn as you go. Fear is a much greater threat to success than an imperfect or unprepared start is.

So do those who create the first molecule have to be perfect?

No, far from it.

Are there any requirements then?

Yes, of course. You do not have to be perfect, but, on the other hand, one cannot be a successful receiver of Spiritual Flow if he is centered on the lower self or caught up in glamour.

A good item to study as far as qualities desired would be the qualities of the disciple that we discussed earlier.

Meanwhile I will group several attributes necessary for the individuals involved to make a molecule work.

(1) Soul contact so when there are disagreements all can reach the soul together and receive the same answer and agree as one.

(2) Reasonable mastery of maya, glamour and illusion so the soul is reached instead of astral force.

(3) A willingness to follow that which comes through the soul even when it hoes against personality wishes.

(4) A sense of mission and desire to serve others as much or more than the self.

(5) A willingness to follow the path of high resistance when necessary

(6) Good imagination, desire to experiment and willingness to let go of the old and take on the new.

(7) Genuine goodwill to all people and a cultivation of the spirit of Love. All should be willing to say the Song of the 144,000 as one voice.

Others could be grouped but this will supply seed thoughts.

The next question:

“Do you identify with this parable? (From the previous post of planting a seed) Have you allowed the seed of these teachings to be planted and if so what happened?

“In a line or two what we call this principle of discovery?”

I enjoyed your accounts of how this parable has worked in your life. Many of you have demonstrated that it is indeed a true concept.

I particularly liked the comment that: “plants can only grow in the light.”

On the other hand, we must keep in mind they begin their life by sprouting in darkness.

When we begin our quest for discovery we often grope in darkness and must test a direction of which we are unsure. But if we do not at least move somewhere then the seed will die. The seed must take in the moisture and move toward where the light seems to be before the sureness of the light can be felt.

The group gave some good names for this principle and some of them may be as good as my selection here. The latest principle of Discovery is: The principle of planting and harvesting.

This certainly does require faith, but the great part of this principle is that is that it is demonstrated wherever there is life.

Someone brought up the idea that bad seeds seem to grow also. This is true, but the bad seed produces a much different effect than the good seed. The good seed creates peace, enlightenment whereas the bad seed creates fog and confusion.

The Religion of Truth

I indeed try and answer religious questions in the language familiar to the student but we are not partial to any religion. The only goal is to find the truth.

Indeed, the religion of this group is the same as that stated by H P Blavatsky who said: “Our highest religion is truth.”

If we use this as criteria then we will indeed be quoting from a wide variety of sources for truth is sprinkled in larger and smaller portions among all the writings of the world. Even the devil himself couldn’t write an article without saying something within it that would be true.

Keys of the Kingdom

Question: “A friend said he had read here that Joseph Smith (the Mormon prophet) was a reincarnation of the apostle Peter and also of Merlin. Is this true? If so, how does this square with Joseph’s well-known views on reincarnation? And how did the resurrected apostle Peter lay his hands on Joseph’s head in 1829?”

A reader gave some great references to this subject for you. He has independently found many of those references I have used in my writings. I have written one Readers Digest version on this subject

But you ask a good question here that I do not believe has ever been addressed.

You ask how a resurrected Peter laid his hands on Joseph’s head if Joseph was once Peter? The truth is that Joseph never claimed that a literal laying on of hands from Peter James and John and no date of this event was ever recorded.

This is probably one of the scriptures that concerns you:

“And also with Peter, and James, and John, whom I have sent unto you, by whom I have ordained you and confirmed you to be apostles, and especial witnesses of my name, and bear the keys of your ministry and of the same things which I revealed unto them;” D&C 27:12

This writing was claimed to be given in a revelation dated August 1830, but when this writing was first published in The Book of Commandments in 1833 this verse was not in there. It as not added until the 1835 edition of the Doctrine and Covenants.

Now Oliver Cowdery was with Joseph when they were visited by John the Baptist and testified to that event with boldness, but here is all he had to say about the restoration of the Higher Priesthood:

“I was present with Joseph when an holy angel from God came down from heaven and conferred on us, or restored, the lesser or Aaronic Priesthood, and said to us, at the same time, that it should remain upon the earth while the earth stands. I was also present with Joseph when the higher or Melchizedek Priesthood was conferred by the holy angel from on high. This Priesthood, we then conferred on each other by the will and commandment of God.” DHC Vol. 1 pg 40

Notice that Oliver’s words about this being who confirmed the higher priesthood. He calls this person, “the holy angel” not Peter James and John. Notice the word angel is singular. It would appear this being who confirmed the higher Priesthood was the same as gave them the lower. Reread the above statement and you’ll see that it appears he is talking about the same angel. We are given no written record of the manner of this visitation.

What created the confusion is that the angel told them that he was acting under the same authority as was held by Peter, James and John from ancient times.

Joseph intuited a confirmation of this Priesthood by sensing the presence of the Apostle Peter, but even he was unaware at the time that he was communing with a memory and thoughtform of his past where Jesus told him in a past life the following:

“And I will give unto thee the keys of the kingdom of heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt bind on earth shall be bound in heaven: and whatsoever thou shalt loose on earth shall be loosed in heaven.” Matt 16:19

Joseph was given the same promise as was Peter because he was Peter. Here are two references.

“And the keys of the mysteries of the kingdom shall not be taken from my servant Joseph Smith, Jun., through the means I have appointed, while he liveth, inasmuch as he obeyeth mine ordinances.” D&C 64:5

“Unto whom (speaking to Joseph) I have given the keys of the kingdom, which belong always unto the Presidency of the High Priesthood:” D&C 81:2

Intelligence In Substance

Intelligence In Substance

A reader wants to know how the lower kingdoms – animals, plants and minerals – fit into the Molecular Order.

It is a definite fact that we are composed of mineral, vegetable and animal. Your bones and teeth, for instance, are living minerals. The hair you have all over your body are plants. That’s one reason you can cut your hair without feeling pain. Then your body as a whole is a highly refined animal body and your lower centers are composed of refined animal type consciousness who are seeking to be one in consciousness with you.

There are two major parts to yourself which are composed of two groups of lives with which we can identify – the heart and the head. We can tell they are two lives because they have two wills as I pointed out previously. This is especially apparent when one falls in love with the wrong person. There will then be a conflict between the head and heart. The heart will want to go with the feeling because when the heart manifests this love energy it likes so much to bask in it that it wants nothing else.

On the other hand, the mind uses reason. It recognizes the good feeling but it is concerned about evidence that the love of his life may be an ax murderer and wants to get to the truth on that matter before taking any plunge.

Thus the heart and mind must fight it out, making certain decisions that affect the whole entity and when in disagreement only one of them will get its way.

Now we take these two major parts of ourselves and put them together molecularly what do we have? We have you – a fully functioning human being. Do you think you would be you if you had no heart? How about if you had no mind? You need both of these lives together in molecular cooperation to manifest you as an individualized entity unique from all others in the universe.

This said, it seems to be illogical to some that a plant could become molecular. How could such a lower life form be intelligent enough to create complex molecular orders?

I have heard it said that mathematicians have examined all the dynamics of the bumblebee and determined that it is impossible that it could fly. But the reality is that is does fly. So who do we believe? The mathematicians or our own eyes revealing that the bumblebee does actually fly?

The same goes for the molecular order. Many scientists laugh at the idea that there is any type of life in matter itself, but then when we take a look through the microscope we find extremely complex forms in all kingdoms. It is as Jesus said: “Solomon in all his glory was not arrayed as one of these.”

Even the very atom itself is seen as being more complex than we have dreamed as we delve deeper and deeper into subatomic particles with our atomic accelerators. Where does this organizational intelligence come from?

The intelligence within matter itself (as far as we can see) comes from the long evolutionary process of the intelligence of the reflections of God creating and playing upon matter itself. The evolutionary foundation of almost all forms, as we know them, comes from the previous solar system many billions of years ago as taught in the Ancient Wisdom.

(Note: some of these things I am to discuss here were revealed by DK through Alice A. Bailey but many new details will bring further enlightenment.)

The first solar system that we as entities are connected with was a previous incarnation of the life of this solar system. That solar system had a life span of a longer duration than this one. The foundation laid by the development of the intelligence aspect in that ancient time has made our current evolution easier and amplified in the use of time.

Life in that previous estate was much different than it is in this one. The polarization of humanity there was female where it is male in this one. Most of the high initiates and saviors were also female. Instead of functioning through the seven major centers we lived as composite units through the 21 minor centers that still exist within our bodies. Just as this solar system is built on the foundation of the second ray of Love-Wisdom even so was the first built on the foundation of the Third Ray of Active Intelligence. The highest intelligence at that time developed and reached physical perfection and only the highest initiates had a glimpse of the meaning of the Second Ray of Love-Wisdom. These high initiates began manifesting two or three of the seven centres we now have as major centers.

In the end of that system all the attention of intelligence was centered on the perfection of form and individual consciousness was not as we understand it now. The consciousness there was of such a different state that pain and pleasure was not registered as we comprehend it and this allowed for full attention on the form. Unrealized by many is that pain and pleasure must exist for there to be a full development of the Love aspect in our consciousness.

That which was good in that previous system was the perfection of form at any cost and that which was evil was the imperfection of form. This idea has a residual effect in this system through the demonstration of “survival of the fittest” in physical evolution. This survival of the fittest will soon give way to “progression through the magnetic power of Love.”

Those who were successful at the end of their span of lives in that system went on to progress in the spiritual realms and finally into a period of rest called pralaya. Many of these entities later became advanced entities in this creation.

As reflections of the One we are one with our Solar Angels in the higher spheres but in this one we are the same Song, but played in a different key. Eventually the two keys must come together and play as one.

Those who failed in that system did not evolve to the higher planes but came to this system, not as new creations, but as reincarnations of their old selves from the past system. These failures from the past system came to earth with a great advantage over the “new souls.” They are very savvy in the materialistic sense, but not that spiritual. They a sense of superiority over the new souls and have sought in many ways to control and dominate them through riches and authority. But the new souls are now developing soul contact, or contact with their solar angels, and are catching up with the astuteness of the old souls and passing them up in many ways as far as spiritual development is concerned. Thus the first shall be last and the last first. The new souls will eventually be the saviors of the old souls.

There are two other groups to be considered from the past solar system. First there was a group of initiates who glorified in their accomplishment as far as physical perfection was concerned and instead of Becoming they put their concentration on Being. They wanted to Be forever what they had Become. It’s a little like the guy who gets a successful income stream coming in. He just wants to sit back, relax and enjoy it for the rest of his life instead of continuing to grow by doing something new.

At the close of that solar system instead of moving on and preparing for a creation of a new order, these initiates decided that they wanted to recreate the old structure with all its glory. These entities who performed so well in this ancient time clung to the old ideas and hence came to this new system as a source of evil.

The second group of initiates moved on and became either solar angels or advanced beings who either moved on to other systems or stayed here to help the Solar Logos in various capacities in the higher planes.

Thus we see again that the first are often last, for this first group of initiates were high achievers in that ancient system, but now in this one they are the last. They are the highest entities within the Dark Brotherhood who put their attention on self and the perfection of form at the expense of Love consciousness.

This shows us the true nature of evil. Evil is the inability to let go of the past which has filled its purpose and to move on to a new state of Becoming.. The Good are those who can let go of the past and are willing to enter into a new Becoming.

This is the reason that Hitler was so alarming of a presence to the Brotherhood of Light. There was a dark one who worked through him who was a high initiate from the previous solar system and was hell bent on re-establishing the physical perfection of that past glory. This being had no sense of pain that he may cause to the world or the love which is in the Purpose of God to be manifest.

At the end of that first solar system the high intelligence that evolved there recorded in the substance of the matter of the system itself a living record of all that was learned, and this was to be used as consciousness develops in this, the second system.

This is the reason that we do not have to concentrate on physical perfection here because physical perfection is already built into us from the atomic level on up. Everyone wonders what the unused strands of DNA are for. They were created by us in the first solar system and will be activated as we grow in consciousness. It is of little use for us to dwell on the unused intelligence within our forms. This is the way of the past. Instead we need to concentrate on unfolding the Love-wisdom aspect of our consciousness. When we do this all things physically needed will come to us. This is one of the hidden meanings behind the statement of Christ: “Seek first the kingdom of God and all these things needed will be manifest.”

The molecular order exists in kingdoms lower than human because the very attention of God passed through all lower kingdoms. As this Divine Attention passed through each kingdom they were embedded with the intelligence of the Molecular Order. When relative perfection is achieved in a lower kingdom the Divine Attention then shifts to a higher kingdom. Presently the Divine attention is focused (in physical reality) on mankind. Now it is our turn to prepare the way for a greater manifestation of life through the creation of a new form and consciousness. What makes us different from the lower kingdoms is that we shall accomplish this with conscious cooperation. This will cause the completed forms and life forms to be much greater than has ever existed before in this universe. We are speaking of the far future here. Currently it will take some time just to catch up with the intelligence organization manifested in a rock.

Question: “Ok, the 24 humans of a molecule draw down only 1 higher life form. Are these humans doomed to forever stay in close proximity with each other? After all, a water molecule ceases to exist if the hydrogen and oxygen decide to go their separate way. How long are the leashes on these humans?”

JJ: A point to bear in mind is that creation on a higher level will have some similarities to the lower but will be far from exactly the same. For instance, a solar system is a bit like an atom, but with many differences. Even so will a human molecule have correspondences to a chemical molecule, but with differences. Its form structure will be on the mental plane instead of the physical. Thus on the physical level there only has to be a bond in consciousness once it is linked to the higher lives.

The life span and general health of the individuals involved will be enhanced. How much is difficult to say. They will not be immortal by any sense, but a few will become Masters and gain the ability to extend life as long as desired.

Isaiah tells us of an age wherein the individual will live to be the age of a tree and he who dies before the age of one hundred will thought to be cursed of God.

Question: “Once the molecule is formed, what will be it’s purpose? Will the members travel around the world healing the sick, parting seas, walking on water, etc, or what?”

JJ: That is like a primitive man asking the ancient inventor of the wheel this question:

“What’s going to be the purpose of that there wheel you’re making?”

The inventor may have said: “I can see a few uses, but this is so revolutionary that I am sure I can only give you the tip of the iceberg. Ask me again in 10,000 years.

The apostles of Jesus demonstrated a few of the benefits with healings and other miracles, but so far we only can sense the tip of the tip of the iceberg.

The Seed of Faith

The Seed of Faith

One of the best teachings in the Book of Mormon is from the book of Alma Chapter 32 where it gives a key to the discovery of truth. This is probably a good time to present it as a principle of discovery.

21 And now as I said concerning faith–faith is not to have a perfect knowledge of things; therefore if ye have faith ye hope for things which are not seen, which are true.

22 And now, behold, I say unto you, and I would that ye should remember, that God is merciful unto all who believe on his name; therefore he desireth, in the first place, that ye should believe, yea, even on his word.

23 And now, he imparteth his word by angels unto men, yea, not only men but women also. Now this is not all; little children do have words given unto them many times which confound the wise and the learned.

26 Now, as I said concerning faith–that it was not a perfect knowledge–even so it is with my words. Ye cannot know of their surety at first, unto perfection, any more than faith is a perfect knowledge.

27 But behold, if ye will awake and arouse your faculties, even to an experiment upon my words, and exercise a particle of faith, yea, even if ye can no more than desire to believe, let this desire work in you, even until ye believe in a manner that ye can give place for a portion of my words.

28 Now, we will compare the word unto a seed. Now, if ye give place, that a seed may be planted in your heart, behold, if it be a true seed, or a good seed, if ye do not cast it out by your unbelief, that ye will resist the Spirit of the Lord, behold, it will begin to swell within your breasts; and when you feel these swelling motions, ye will begin to say within yourselves–It must needs be that this is a good seed, or that the word is good, for it beginneth to enlarge my soul; yea, it beginneth to enlighten my understanding, yea, it beginneth to be delicious to me.

29 Now behold, would not this increase your faith? I say unto you, Yea; nevertheless it hath not grown up to a perfect knowledge.

30 But behold, as the seed swelleth, and sprouteth, and beginneth to grow, then you must needs say that the seed is good; for behold it swelleth, and sprouteth, and beginneth to grow. And now behold, will not this strengthen your faith? Yea, it will strengthen your faith: for ye will say I know that this is a good seed; for behold it sprouteth and beginneth to grow.

31 And now, behold, are ye sure that this is a good seed? I say unto you, Yea; for every seed bringeth forth unto its own likeness.

32 Therefore, if a seed groweth it is good, but if it groweth not, behold it is not good, therefore it is cast away.

33 And now, behold, because ye have tried the experiment, and planted the seed, and it swelleth and sprouteth, and beginneth to grow, ye must needs know that the seed is good.

34 And now, behold, is your knowledge perfect? Yea, your knowledge is perfect in that thing, and your faith is dormant; and this because ye know,

for ye know that the word hath swelled your souls, and ye also know that it hath sprouted up, that your understanding doth begin to be enlightened, and your mind doth begin to expand.

35 O then, is not this real? I say unto you, Yea, because it is light; and whatsoever is light, is good, because it is discernible, therefore ye must know that it is good; and now behold, after ye have tasted this light is your knowledge perfect?

36 Behold I say unto you, Nay; neither must ye lay aside your faith, for ye have only exercised your faith to plant the seed that ye might try the experiment to know if the seed was good.

37 And behold, as the tree beginneth to grow, ye will say: Let us nourish it with great care, that it may get root, that it may grow up, and bring forth fruit unto us. And now behold, if ye nourish it with much care it will get root, and grow up, and bring forth fruit.

38 But if ye neglect the tree, and take no thought for its nourishment, behold it will not get any root; and when the heat of the sun cometh and scorcheth it, because it hath no root it withers away, and ye pluck it up and cast it out.

39 Now, this is not because the seed was not good, neither is it because the fruit thereof would not be desirable; but it is because your ground is barren, and ye will not nourish the tree, therefore ye cannot have the fruit thereof.

40 And thus, if ye will not nourish the word, looking forward with an eye of faith to the fruit thereof, ye can never pluck of the fruit of the tree of life.

41 But if ye will nourish the word, yea, nourish the tree as it beginneth to grow, by your faith with great diligence, and with patience, looking forward to the fruit thereof, it shall take root; and behold it shall be a tree springing up unto everlasting life.

42 And because of your diligence and your faith and your patience with the word in nourishing it, that it may take root in you, behold, by and by ye shall pluck the fruit thereof, which is most precious, which is sweet above all that is sweet, and which is white above all that is white, yea, and pure above all that is pure; and ye shall feast upon this fruit even until ye are filled, that ye hunger not, neither shall ye thirst.

43 Then, my brethren, ye shall reap the rewards of your faith, and your diligence, and patience, and long-suffering, waiting for the tree to bring forth fruit unto you.

Notice that to discover whether a teaching is true that you do not search out the evil that may be therein, for until the truth is discovered it is difficult to sort out the good and the evil, the true and the false.

So what does this scripture tell us to do?

It tells us to “experiment.”

And how do we do that?

The scripture plainly tells us:

“Now, we will compare the word unto a seed. Now, if ye give place, that a seed may be planted in your heart, behold, if it be a true seed, or a good seed, if ye do not cast it out by your unbelief, that ye will resist the Spirit of the Lord, behold, it will begin to swell within your breasts; and when you feel these swelling motions, ye will begin to say within yourselves–It must needs be that this is a good seed, or that the word is good, for it beginneth to enlarge my soul; yea, it beginneth to enlighten my understanding, yea, it beginneth to be delicious to me.”

This is one reason the scriptures tell us to “believe all things.” One cannot use this principle of discovery unless he places himself in a believing mindset. Now the trouble some have with my teachings is a concern that the word may be from the devil which prevented the completion of the “experiment.” But Alma here did not tell us to be concerned about whether the seed is good or evil because the experiment of faith will teach you that. And how is that?

The scripture answers:

“Therefore, if a seed groweth it is good, but if it groweth not, behold it is not good, therefore it is cast away.”

You can’t tell if the seed is good by continual analysis alone. Instead you tell by the fact that the seed grows. If the seed, or the word, is not good what will happen? Will the good old devil come possess you? No. Instead nothing happens. The seed does not sprout and does not grow.

So why does the bad seed not grow? Because that which is not true is illusion and illusion is created from shadows and shadows are not real. That which does not exist and is not real cannot grow. The scripture tells us that it is possible to prevent even a good seed from growing if you “cast it out by your unbelief.”

So if you plant the seed and fear it may be evil or useless and cast it out then of course, the experiment has ended and it will not grow. But if we are successful with step one and plant the seed and feel it growing what will happen next?

“…behold, it will begin to swell within your breasts; and when you feel these swelling motions, ye will begin to say within yourselves–It must needs be that this is a good seed, or that the word is good, for it beginneth to enlarge my soul; yea, it beginneth to enlighten my understanding, yea, it beginneth to be delicious to me.”

Now I know that there are many in this group who have performed this experiment. Many of you have believing hearts and have allowed the teachings I have presented in the Immortal and on the group into your hearts. Each time this has happened I have seen the seed planted begin to grow within you. Then I have witnessed the literal truth of this scripture as I have watched the seed swell and grow, enlighten your understanding and be “delicious” to your taste as it is to mine.

Question: Do you identify with this parable? Have you allowed the seed of these teachings to be planted and if so what happened?

The Third Party

The Third Party

A reader made the point that third parties are not needed and instead of relying on others we should go directly to God and receive our own revelation.

I agree that “The revelations of God come to those individuals that seek them.” But if you receive a revelation that I have not received then you become a third party. Does that nullify the veracity of your revelation and make it any less true?

Jesus, Joseph Smith and Paul were third parties who received revelation that are available for us. I notice that you use and accept these third parties.

“Unto whom much is given much is expected.” When one receives higher knowledge or ability he is expected to share it and help others achieve all that he has accomplished. The very name of Jesus Christ means “anointed to deliver,” Thus if we take upon ourselves this sacred name we do become a third party for others to a degree. We then seek to be a servant to our brothers and sisters and helping to deliver them from the disadvantage of the picture with missing pieces by sharing the knowledge of the more completed picture. They can then use the eyes of the soul to discern whether or not the new vision of the picture is correct.

I thank God every day for the third parties who have taught me, but they do not in any way take away from my free will in seeking any knowledge or soul confirmation I desire.

Now what is indeed in error is for a third party to take the place of God in a persons mind so he will not seek his own revelation and soul confirmation on revelations which have already been received. I’m sure we both agree on this.

Where are the Revelations?

The reader seemed to have the idea that I was claiming to be the only source of new revelation on the planet

This was not my implication at all and I believe that most understand that.

Here was my question:

“If the light and knowledge presented here is not in alignment with the Purpose of God, then where are the revelations from Him? Do you have them, or did God fall asleep with the death of Joseph Smith?”

Now most Mormons and disenfranchised Mormons that I know do not recognize any new knowledge or principles that have been revealed since the death of Joseph Smith. Therefore, if God has not given a message for the world for over 150 years it does seem that He is sleeping on the job. If he isn’t sleeping then where are the revelations??? We are surely as worthy of them as were the people in the 1840’s when this country still had slaves and thought the Bible supported such a travesty.

My belief is that over the past 150 years that God has given many revelations. I was about a million miles away from asserting that I am the only one giving them out or making soul contact.

I do notice though that no one who rejects the light given through Bailey, Blavatsky, Levi and others has ventured to answer my question so I will ask it for the third time.

If the metaphysical teachings given out to the world are not from God then Where are the revelations? Joseph taught that revelation was continuous. Is God sleeping on the job or is this the cry of the current Mormons and ex-Mormons something like this: “A Standard Work a Standard Work, we have a Standard Work and need no more a Standard Work!”

Note to all: The Standard Works for the Mormons are the Bible plus the Mormon scriptures.

The Anti New Agers

One thing to consider about anti New Age writers is that most of these will lump Joseph Smith and Mormonism right in there with the new age beliefs and see them both as controlled by the good old devil.

Most anti New Age Christians will see Joseph’s teachings about man becoming God as being at least as insidious as anything taught in the new age.

One thing Christians should understand about all the groups labeled by them as new agers is this: Just as there is one Christ but there are many believers in Christ who we would not want to associate with – snake charmers, castration cults etc. Even so, is there only one real coming new age, but many beliefs branching off from this central theme. Some of them are quite strange, full of illusion, and then, some have quite a bit of truth.

I myself am a Christian New Ager. I believe in Christ and the inspiration of the scriptures (but not their infallibility) and also believe we are entering into a new and better age than the authoritarian age of Pisces.

In Matthew 24 it was prophesied that Christ would come at the end of the “age.” (mistranslated “world”). What comes after the end of an “age?” Duh – a new age right???

All believers in the prophesy of Christ here should be a new agers if they accept the scriptures.

Just as you can be a Christian and reject many strange ideas of the Jehovah’s Witnesses, even so can you be a New Ager and disagree with many ideas of various new age groups.

Now concerning Randall N. Baer. His brand of New Ageism (from his past) is far removed from most of the things I believe in, but I’ll tell you what. I know you have ordered his anti new age book, probably with the idea of gaining ammunition to bring us to the error of our ways. But here is what we would like you to do and not do.

We request that you do not:

Point out evils talked about by Baer that have nothing to do with the beliefs and teachings presented here. I’m sure you wouldn’t want to be called evil as a Christian for not believing in blood transfusions, as the Jehovah’s Witnesses adhere to, when you do not identify with their beliefs.

Here is what we do request:

You are welcome to present “enlightenment” to us from Baer that pertains to actual beliefs and teachings presented here.

Molecular Dialog

Molecular Dialog

Reader: “At least J.J. admitted today that he’s never been ashamed of being called a New Ager.”

JJ: I wouldn’t call it an admission any more than you might “admit” to being called a patriot. It is a proud declaration.

The reader then complained that I am misusing the term “New Ager” which leads to confusion. He complains that “Black becomes white and white becomes black. It is a tricky slight of hand.”

He is guilty of what he is accusing me of here. A New Ager is simply one who looks forward to and believes in a “new” and better “age” to come. The term is pretty self-explanatory.

Now enemies of those looking forward to a better world or age for some perverse reason despise new agers and do everything in their emotional power to portray them as evil and satanic (with no basis in reason). The enemies of the new age conjure up their own definitions of what a new ager is and declare that this is reality merely because they state it. Do Mormons allow their enemies to define what a Mormon is? Would you, being an excommunicated Mormon, allow the authorities in the Mormon church to define the purpose of your website???

Yet you have, with no apparent discernment on your part, swallowed the definition of a new ager put forth by the enemies of a loving and harmless segment of society.

The fact that New Agers are a loosely knitted group who believe in a new and better age to come is not a redefinition.

Next the reader expressed concern that a molecule could be created by a gathering of misguided or deluded souls and thus the greater life created would be evil instead of good.

This is not a concern because a true higher molecular life can only be created when the correct number are gathered and all involved obtain soul contact together. This creates a link to God, the Source, which can only happen when there is alignment with divine purpose.

Any gathering of the deluded who do not contact higher Spirit as a group will not create a molecular life but the highest they can experience is some addition of group energy.

The reader is using the distortion principle again and keeps throwing out Satan and Lucifer in relation to me and the group, but does not realize that it is the Dark Brothers who use distortion as a technique when they attack their enemies. Distort the views of those with whom you disagree and then this makes you look more correct and more like the good guy. Hitler called the Jews Satan’s children again and again and pretty soon a lot of people believed it.

The reader accuses us of setting the stage for tyranny and a loss of freedom. Freedom is a principle that is worked out in practice rather than speech only. No one in our group has in the slightest attempted to infringe upon your freedoms or the freedom of any in his group or any individual. Yet he comes here and impose many posts that infringe on the freedom of our group to pursue the desired subject. We allow this for a certain tolerance is necessary. Many consider it an infringement of this freedom to be heckled from the sidelines as potential or current devil worshippers.

Imagine a fundamentalist going into a science class and accusing the teacher of being in league with the devil because he is teaching that the earth is more than 6,000 years old and insists the class revolve around his narrow ideas rather than scientific exploration as was the design of the class.

Who is the one with the lesser regard for freedom – the teacher or the student turned heckler?

Joseph Smith saw a portion of the Molecular Order and saw that those who were not a part of it within their eternal progression would remain in a “separate and single” situation. Even so, the Dark Brothers are incapable of joining to draw down a group life form. As Jesus said that if one is not connected to the vine he will wither and die. If we are not connected to the vine of life then no type of greater life can manifest.

The dark ones can influence groups through thought forms and overshadow on an individual basis, but they cannot duplicate what happened on the day of Pentecost. That is beyond their power.

Perhaps instead of pointing the accusing finger at us, conjured up illusionary reasons to accuse, you should examine yourself consider your scripture warning of fighting against a great light making “a man an offender for a word, and lay a snare for him that reproveth in the gate, and turn aside the just for a thing of naught.” II Nephi 27:31-32

If the light and knowledge presented here is not in alignment with the Purpose of God, then where are the revelations from Him? Do you have them, or did God fall asleep with the death of Joseph Smith?

Now let’s take a little time with Rick’s thoughts:

Rick: So, when JJ asks who or what incarnates into the molecule, I’m asking myself, why are we back-tracking to the question that is asked in books 1 and 2, that was covered even before we come to the Keys group.

JJ: Actually, we haven’t covered this angle yet. In the Immortal we learned that the key word was Decision and that power within us that makes decision is our essence, or at least our essence as far as the foundation principle of ourselves as individual living entities.

I do not believe we have talked about the manifestation of the unique entity (that occupies the Molecule) in the previous posts either

Rick: Could I really have done this. Lost myself in the larger group. Is it insolent of me to think I am a higher life form?

JJ: Higher than what? As humans we are not the highest but neither are we the lowest. But through the Oneness principle we can have access and identification with lives much higher than we are.

Rick: Now the confusion, in my mind is this; I know my body’s parts, by name. I can direct my consciousness into my hands, my feet, maybe all the way down to the cellular and mineral level. But, if I reverse it and go upward in kingdoms, I have no way to identify the forms.

JJ: We are going into territory that has not been covered by Bailey or anyone else I have read. The molecular lives do not have names that I know of and it is quite possible that a name for them would be meaningless, except the name of Jesus Christ which is the name of all those who seek to lift their fellow lives up to a higher level. These entities are on a totally different order than is human and is a higher correspondence of a crystal, just as humans are a higher correspondent to atoms. Technically we could call it a crystalline life within a human molecule. We will not carry on conversations with it like we would another human but it’s main purpose in manifestation is to be a conductor of the purpose, power and will of God. What about love you say? That part comes from us. We are to take the power of God and transmute it into loving service.

Rick: I need a chart, naming the various levels of organized life. I know we have names like Molecule and master molecule, etc., but these don’t seem like good names for living beings. Do they have other names, or do we have to come up with some.

JJ: Your body is just called a human body. You, Rick, are what is in the body. Even so, the body of the higher entity is a human molecule which is not a name. Eventually many different entities will occupy many molecules and may or may not reveal their names.

We must keep in mind that we know very little about this new life form – only what we can pick up intuitively or from what little was written about the Apostles. Because it manifests in a spirit of oneness it may not see itself as separate enough from us to reveal a name. Perhaps each molecule will come up with various names for the higher entities.

Rick: We need a glossary of terms, used by our school. I was taught that the etheric, astral and physical are three separate planes, but here we call them only two.

JJ: The etheric and the physical are closely interlinked and shortly after the physical dies the etheric dissipates. As DK says the physical body is not built on a principle, but illusion. The real principle behind the physical is in the etheric body. The Masters see the etheric as the real physical body. They are able to walk through physical walls because they understand this,

The astral realm has the same relationship with the mental plane. The mental plane is built on real principles and the astral is an upside down reflection of mind and is, from a higher point of view, not real. Thus in the worlds of form we have only two planes created from true principles: The etheric plane and the mental plane.

However, when the average man dies and goes to the spirit world it will seem as real to him as the physical does here.

Rick: I was taught that the next three life forms, above human, were called angelic, arch-angelic and celestial, but I don’t know what we call them here.

JJ: The angel lives are an entire kingdom, or even kingdoms from a higher point of view, and have many grades of lives therein. Now the Bible makes the understanding of the angel kingdom difficult because the word for angel there means “messenger” and sometimes refers to humans or advanced humans from the other side of the veil.

In addition there are several kingdoms of Angels who have evolved within their sphere independent of the human and will eventually become human. The angel, or deva evolution varies from very simple lives to very powerful ones and in the new age we will learn how to better communicate with them and use their services and they ours.

Rick: It would help me if we all spoke the same language. Is there an Alice A. Bailey . book that would tell me these things or can we just cover it here, in simple language? Throw me a bone and put a nametag on that bone. Foot bone connected to the leg bone, leg bone connected to the knee bone.

JJ: Sorry. There is no chart to prepare you for that which is to come. The only ones who understand the Molecular order at present are the Masters, but they experience it from the vantage point of living within the kingdom of God as a group. We will experience it from the vantage point of regular mortality and so all the repercussions of its manifestation, especially in this age, can only be guessed at. How many of the attributes of the higher life are carried down to the single members will be determined by the soul contact of each of us as individuals and collectively.

The creation of the first human molecules will require the greatest act of faith demonstrated on the earth for many years.
