Obstacles To Goodwill

Jan 24, 2020

Obstacles To Goodwill

Here’s some more good advice from DK to which the Left should pay attention.

“the refusal of that public to face life as it is and to recognize the facts for what they are. The mass of men need arousing to see that good comes to all men alike and not just to a few privileged groups, and to learn also that “hatred ceases not by hatred but that hatred ceases by love”. This love is not a sentiment, but practical goodwill, expressing itself through individuals, in communities and among nations.”  Problems of Humanity, Page 173

The major problem in the United States that frustrates the promotion of goodwill as envisioned by DK is the hate of the left toward their political opposites. It was bad under Bush but has reached Biblical proportions under Trump.

“But” says one, “it is the Right that is full of hate not us. They are so despicable that we have to totally reject them and distance ourselves from them. We have to protest them, and more at times, and attack pure evil before it can spread.”

Yes, they promote the idea that they are the righteous ones because the Right deserves to be attacked because they are so repulsive.

They remind me of the opponents of Jesus who attacked him and later his disciples. Of them Jesus said

“They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service. And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me.” John 16:2-3

Just like the authorities in the time of Jesus thought that the hate they had justified them in severing relationships (putting them “out of the synagogues”) as well as violence even so does the left attack Trump and his voters with everything the law allows and then some. The fact that Kathy Griffin is celebrated for showing a severed head of Trump and many speak of wishing him dead while facing little criticism from their peers is evidence of this attitude.

Now Obama is pretty much the polar opposite of Trump. Most members of the Right disagreed with almost every move he made. Many even saw him and his supporters as outright supporting murder for their support of abortion, even late term abortion. One can see how hate and support of violence could have been supported by them.

Yet we saw no one carrying a severed head from Obama and laughing about it. We saw no one from the Right marching on the homes of leftists banging on their doors and windows, scaring their children. We saw no one from the right refusing to serve Obama supporters or interfering with their dining.

True there were a handful of bad people from the Right also, but when revealed they were generally condemned by them whereas the Left applauded disrespect from the left. Robert DeNiro is a prime example. After showing tremendous disrespect and destructive language toward the President he is applauded and given awards.

I submit that it is the Left that has created the main obstacles to goodwill and if they just relax and assumed a live and let live attitude that we could make a major step toward goodwill as promoted by DK.

I know I am willing and everyone I know from the Right is also. Goodwill is just waiting for the Left to meet us halfway.

Christmas Message 2019

This entry is part 24 of 24 in the series Christmas Messages

Christmas Message 2019

The Master sat in the great council and spoke. “What think ye of humankind – have they made any progress in the last year? How many have found the pure Christ presence within the core of their being? Is goodwill finally beginning to permeate the hearts of mankind?

One spoke up, “As you know the planet is suffering through turbulent times with great discord. The prophecy of goodwill and peace on earth seems to be far distant; whereas your prediction of brother against brother seems to be dominating.”

“Yes, the tension has been building for some time but this is a necessary step the sons and daughters must take to open their eyes and see the new world. You, my friends, have been searching for the pure in heart. Are there enough to swing the balance to peace and goodwill?”

Another spoke, “There has been an increase of both love and hate. Unfortunately, hate has been much more visible than love though love is increasing and flows powerfully beneath the surface of what is visible to the masses.”

I will go check the pulse of the people this Christmas season when their thoughts are more giving than usual.

The Master looked down upon the world and saw many points of dark and light in the hearts of the people. He decided to visit one in darkness first.

He observed a young man watching a political discussion on the television. He agreed with one commentator and hated the other. “Why can’t that stupid jerk see how wrong he is?” he asked himself And why can’t my parents see the truth? “Why are they on the side of hate?” he thought as he nurtured his own hateful thoughts.

Then the phone rang. It was his father wishing him a Merry Christmas. Then he grudgingly sent back greetings, but the father could feel a lack of love in his voice and ended the call with, “I love you son.” He then handed the phone to his wife and she also expressed her love as only a mother can.

His heart had been so disturbed by his political differences that he had difficulty returning the love, but at that instant the Master looked at the energies of his heart and saw dark clouds hiding the love that abides in the center. His thoughts penetrated that darkness and reached the core of his being.

His heart was touched and a stream of memories flooded his mind with all the loving acts his parents had done for him over the years. As his mind and heart returned to capture the feeling of those happy times he started to weep.

His mother was concerned and asked if anything was wrong.

“Why can’t things be the way they used to be where we loved each other and agreed on things?”

“Our love for you is greater than politics,” said his mother. We can have more love, not less, if we just look at the best in each other.”

Thanks Mom. Our political differences have made me feel distant lately but I just had a surge of good memories come back that reminded me of what great parents you are. I love you both and this time I really mean it.”

The master was pleased that this young man could he reached and moved on.

Next, he observed a young lady who was obsessed with social media. She had little physical contact because of the large amount of time online and this caused her much distress. She observed all the happy pictures posted by others and felt that everyone seemed to be having a better time than herself. Then when she did post anything that wasn’t positive she felt others reacted with bullying comments. This created a vicious circle of attack from both sides.

Her negativity had progressed beyond the point of reason and she was thinking of taking a bottle of pills and ending her grief.

The Master tuned into her thoughts and the heart of her sister who was in a positive state and linked the two hearts. The older sister then thought of the younger and felt a cry for help. She made a call, wished her a Merry Christmas and shared her love. She then reminded her of the good times they had when younger and these pleasant thoughts revived her spirit and she decided to embrace life again, feeling that life would get better.

The Master then raised his consciousness to embrace the earth and viewed all the hate and love, the positive and negative, the good and the bad. He saw the homeless and the destitute, the rich and the prosperous. He saw many sacrificing themselves to help others yet many holding back thinking only of themselves. He saw many consumed with rage and hate and others filled with love.

As he raised his consciousness further he saw many points of darkness, but they were gradually being pushed back by points of light coming from loving hearts. Indeed the darkness seemed overwhelming, but it had reached the height of its power.

The Master sat again before the council and spoke: “The point of tension is great indeed, but the hearts of all but the most hardened of souls can still be reached with love. The spirit of light and love is increasing and will not be extinguished. Let us continue to encourage humankind to take the better path and we will assess them again in the year to come. The will of the Most High will surely come to pass, but because of free will the only unknown factor is the time involved.

“What shall be the keynote of our focus?” was asked.

“We need to remind those imprisoned by negativity to look back on their lives as did the two souls I visited, and review the pleasant memories where love was shared. This will nourish the love of Christ that is eternally at the core of their being and cause it to manifest anew.”

“May it be so,” said the group as one voice.

The Missing Goodwill

Nov 20, 2019

The Missing Goodwill

A reader asks a question worthy of attention. He references a post I made way back in March 1999 wherein I addressed concerns of predictions of the end of the world in the year 2000 as well as Y2K. I stated:

“The end of the world will not come around the year 2000. Y2K may create some problems but they will be solved and we will move on. The time of great opportunity is upon the disciples of light from this point on for the next thirty years.”

I also said that, “Providing that alternative two is successful it will still take about 150 years to successfully usher in the age of peace. But the main period of tension will be the next 30 years.”

To this Blayne asks where we are now in relation to my comments.

In that post I stated that we face two alternatives for our future:

(1) There can be great destruction which will “destroy them which destroy the earth.” Rev 11:18. Thus with all the destructive people out of the way the earth can rest from the mischief man creates.

(2) Some destruction will occur but mankind will basically institute the just laws and actions necessary to create world stability so humankind can join in with the earth in the period of great rest.

I stated that the forces of light are trying to implement the second alternative whereas the dark ones are working on the first. At that time the chances looked good or a peaceful transition to the new age but the dark forces have been more successful than anticipated in applying the principle of “divide and conquer.” The great division among us is now obvious in that all over the world we see a heightened political divide between the left and the right. Few years ago religious differences were of much more concern than political, but that has changed. Now politics has become the new religion and many who in the past that were fairly indifferent now passionately take a side with loathing and hatred toward the other.

The only other time in history that corresponds to this is the atmosphere in the United States just before the Civil War. There is a significant difference, however. Back then the fight was over a definite point of good and evil, which was slavery. Yes, there were other problems, but this was the main dividing point.

In this age, the points causing the division are much more ambiguous. The strange thing is that both the left and the right pretty much agree with what the main problems are. Unlike the Civil War period where slavery was the defining issue supported by one side and attacked by the other, there is no one main issue that divides us. Instead, the division comes from how serious these problems are and how we are to go about solving them.

The right wants to solve our problems through maximum free enterprise and minimal government and the left wants minimal free enterprise and maximum government intervention creating regulations and charging whatever taxes necessary to make things happen.

Instead of focusing on points of agreement, of which there are many, they focus on disagreements and if they are not strong enough then the other side is demonized by distorting their view into something almost satanic, beyond reconition.

The plan of the Hierarchy was to smoothly move us into the new age through the promotion of good will promoted by the disciples throughout the world.

Instead, this division tactic is working so well that many disciples have abandoned goodwill and joined in with the division and hate and loath all who disagree with them as being enemies of humanity. The efforts of seeking union through goodwill has been neutralized to a high degree.

There are a few working through goodwill but a much smaller number than is needed. Many of those who incarnated with the idea of assisting in moving this goodwill forward have failed in their mission, given impetus to the dark side and will be greatly disappointed when they have their life review.

Because of a failure to raise goodwill to the needed level our fate is in the hands of a humanity’s ability to observe the results of their policies and behavior and to deal with it in a positive rather than negative way.

After World War II there was strong optimism that we could safely transition to the new age, but now I’d say that we are down to close to a 50/50 chance. I’m still leaning a little in favor of things tending to no great Armageddon situation, but the lights of the world definitely need to become more proactive. A few generalized meditations will not do the trick. There must be more actual positive activity on the physical plane.

Back in 2004 I was contemplating the great division that was beginning to manifest and wrote the Principles of Political Unification in an attempt to bring the two sides together. Unfortunately, it has gained little traction, but the hope is still there.

Principles of Political Unification

(1) I seek that which is good for my country and the world above that which is good for my party.

(2) I support the principle of free speech. I shall be allowed to express my political and spiritual views, however repulsive, without legal restrictions and allow all people the same privilege.

(3) I support the principle of freedom and work toward securing the greatest possible freedom for individuals and groups in every situation. I accept the principles of freedom enunciated in the U.S. Constitution and Bill of Rights.

(4) I commit myself to sending goodwill and the spirit of friendship to all involved in the political process, especially those with differing political views.

(5) Even though the majority may not always support my views I realize that the majority view, when properly informed, rarely will lead us on a dangerous path. I therefore seek to honor the will of the people. When I disagree with the will of the people I will not seek to forcefully control them or change them but will use peaceful means to inform and educate them.

(6) There are a number of issues that cause division, heated debate and anger. Examples are abortion, gun control, social programs, drug legalization, military activities and others. Most cannot be resolved in the near future through the conversion of one side to another. I support this unifying approach: To support the principle of fairness on controversial issues both sides must be heard even though the other side may be repulsive to me, for free speech and thought is the most important principle and the prime directive of unification and ultimate peace. I therefore commit to the principle of fair play realizing that both sides deserve to be heard and have their representatives in positions of power.

(7) I believe in integrity and honesty and will seek to be truthful no matter what the opponents do. I seek not to distort or lie for the benefit of my party or for personal gain.

(8) I accept that we must be fiscally responsible and will do all in my power to create a balanced budget, except in times of national crisis. I will only support programs that can be funded or continued without increasing the burden on the taxpayer.

(9) I agree that the people are taxed enough and seek to keep the budget within the range of current tax revenues (or preferably lower) and to not raise the percentage of taxes on anyone.

(10) I agree to put the security of my country and the world above the views or actions of my own political party. If others of my party sabotage national security or undermine a just effort toward the elimination of threats I will be just as critical of them as the opposing party.

(11) I accept the fact that there is great waste and inefficiency in government spending and commit myself to eliminate waste and increase efficiency wherever and whenever possible.

(12) I accept and support the idea that we can save ourselves much grief by learning from the mistakes of history so we do not repeat them. It is therefore of extreme importance that the youth be accurately taught, without censorship, national and world history in a way that is of interest and will be absorbed by them. I will oppose all those who revise history in distorted fashion for political gain.

(13) I agree that extremism has been and is the cause of many problems in the world and seek to not impose extreme views on the people. If I happen to have extreme views which I believe to be of value to will seek to persuade by education rather than by law or force. It is also a problem when political opponents are called extremists when over a third of the public support them. Such accusations are extremism in disguise. I seek to not be extreme myself in distorting the image of opponents by calling them extremists when such is not true. For instance, it is not extremism to be simply for or against abortion as there are many on both sides of the equation.

(14) I support the elimination of poverty but realize there are two approaches to this. The first is to give a helping handout and the second is to provide circumstances so the person may help himself. Extremists on this issue have warred against each other and have been the cause of much division. I reject extremism on both sides and seek to recognize the value of both sides. There are times of helplessness when people need direct assistance and times when they need encouraged to stand on their own feet. I do not support handouts to those who are capable of helping themselves and refuse to do so.

(15) I support the separation of church and state, but reject extremism on both sides. I reject the extreme that the government should endorse any specific religious influence on public policy even though all religions have the freedom to express their views. I also reject the other extreme that any mention of God, religious values, or the public display of religious symbols is to not be tolerated.

(16) I support equal rights for all races, both sexes and members of all religions and ideologies. I recognize that the large majority both sides of the political spectrum seek what is best for all races and minorities (even though the opposition has a different approach) and refuse to manufacture accusations for political gain.

(17) I recognize that the large majority both sides of the political spectrum seek what is best for the environment but again both sides have a different approach. Two extremes causing division are: First aiding then environment even if there is strong economic and job loss. The second is seeking profits at the expense of the environment. The truth is the two are interdependent. A strong economy can provide funds to help the environment and a healthy environment provides for a good long term good economy. I seek therefore to work with both sides of this issue and will seek cooperation rather than assigning blame. I seek to aid the environment without harming the economic structure.

(18) I recognize we are a nation of laws and will not support the subversion of law for political gain. I will condemn such subversion of those who share my views as well as those who do not.

(19) I will only support the establishment of necessary law as well as the elimination of bad, as well as useless laws that clutter the system.

(20) In the end, I support the example of John Kennedy who, while campaigning, found good things to say about his opposition and instead of tearing down he said “we can do better.” I support the idea of converting by good works and ideas rather than tearing down the opposition.

Poetry in Motion

Poetry in Motion

Since we are passing around poetry I thought I would post a couple I have written that seems close to the subject at hand. Hope I’m not too mushy for you.

 

THE TEMPLE BEAUTIFUL

By J J Dewey

I sought to build a temple

Of the Living God

Where He could come and dwell

And rest His Iron Rod.

So the glory of God would shine around

And all would see the day

Love and Light would abound

Like the Sun would point the way.

I took the brick and motor fine

And a form I made.

All was there but Love Divine

And thus it cast a shade.

Then in the doorways it was clear

The Love of God did cry

You cannot alone build a temple dear

Only a form that one would buy.

To build a Temple Beautiful

And make a living thing

Find one you think is wonderful

And to her my Spirit bring

I appoint to you – a sign

You two shall be as one.

And share in love the truth divine

Until the living temple be done.

I found a one my Lord did love

Who sought Him as did I

The Spirit descended from above

The union made me cry.

A thousand lives

Is what our oneness shows

A love to make the building divine

A temple beautiful to know.

We sought to build somewhere

The temple – A living thing.

And found the breath of life was there

The Spirit we did bring.

For first we loved as few dared dream

A temple made with no hands.

Before we made the building seen

By the eye of men.

God did smile on the temple seen

Filled with Light and Love and Will-to-be

And revealed to me the mystery of the Trinity

The temple must be build by three.

You and I and the God of Love

Must be the cornerstone

And in oneness build the temple above

Before life can be seen in stone.

 

WHOLENESS

We have both yearned for oneness over many lifetimes.

I can feel it.

You have called out for your other half many times over thousands of years.

I have heard it.

I have put forth the thought that I need someone like you to complete me and give me strength to do what I know I must do.

I have spoken it.

Poetic thoughts of you over a dozen lifetimes fill my mind.

I have written them.

The soft melodies of the universe filters through your soul into mine.

I have sang them.

The powers and Gods that be have blessed our Union.

I accept it.

The time is come to be one in everlasting Love.

Let US do it.

 

MY BEST FRIEND

You are my wife, lover and partner

And for that I will always be grateful

But you are more than that.

You are my best friend.

You are always there for me

When I need you.

You are there to lift my spirits

When no one else is there.

You listen

And sometimes you are the only one

You inspire me

When there seems to be no inspiration left.

You love me

When perhaps no one else would

You accept me

For what I am.

It may take the rest of my life

Or longer

To repay

The gifts you have given me.

But the repayment is not a burden

It is a joy.

 

THE NURTURER

Light is Truth

Truth is the Word

The Word is a seed

I am a sower of seeds.

For thousands of years have I sown.

Most of them fell by the way side and were ignored.

Others fell on stony ground

And died and the wind of ridicule blew them away

Because they had no root.

Again I sowed among thorns

And the cares of the world choked

The Life from the sprouted seeds.

I have searched and searched for good ground

But it seems so illusive.

What seems to look so good

Seems to produce the highest weeds

That hide the sunlight and take the nourishment

From the soil that was to feed the seed.

But finally I found you.

Who made sure the seed was not cast by the way side.

You made sure the seed was not planted in stony ground

Nor did you let it fall among thorns.

Neither did you deceive me with soil that appeared good

But hidden within were seeds of many weeds.

You, the choicest of Nurturers

Have given me virgin soil

With no stones, thorns, or deceptive seeds

You allowed my word to be planted deep within

And kept it moist and aerated

And spoke kind words of belief and faith

And hope for the struggling life to break soil.

My Word in the struggling life

Will not disappoint you

But will spring forth a plant in a day

Whose flowers will follow the Sun in its tracks

Whose fruit will be the Love of God

And Union of Souls unto you.

Your soul and mine.

Brexit and the New Age

April 3, 2019

Brexit and the New Age

Esoteric and new age students of today suffer a similar illusion as did the Christians in attempting to promote their ideals in past ages. Early Christians thought that if a little of good ideal was good then more was better and any movement toward the ideal was good no matter how it was achieved. Consequently, when their ideas began to dominate after Constantine they felt that expansion, even at the point of the sword and slavery, was a good thing. Snuffing out competing ideologies like Mithraism, teachings of Apollonius, Manichaeaism, banned books and all forms of gnosticism were seen as victories. Then, when the Conquistadors went to the Americas they forced the natives to accept their ideal religion or die. The means to the end seemed worth it as the ideals of the kingdom of God embraced were taken from the teachings of the greatest of us all, the Christ.

Now in this age we have a higher octave of ideals set before us in the Ancient Wisdom, particularly in the teachings of Alice A. Bailey and DK. The question is this: Are the mistakes of the past being repeated? If a little is good is more always better and is any means justified in advancing the ideal, even the taking away freedom of choice?

The teachings emphasize sharing and the rejection of materialism. Does this mean that the ideals of socialism and communism should be accepted, even at the point of the sword to loss of freedom?

Some are all in and even feel that totalitarianism is a price worth paying, despite DK’s obvious teachings on the importance of allowing for maximum free will.

Others are supportive but by lesser degrees. These reject totalitarian communism but support social ideals that infringe on free will, but are not totalitarian as of yet.

Yes, sharing and cooperation are important ideals for the new age, but they must be accomplished, not by force, but through processes that do not infringe on the freewill of the people as a whole. Here are three quotes from DK on the importance of freedom:

“Leave people free in all respects—with the freedom that you demand and expect for yourself.” Discipleship in the New Age, Vol 1, Page 427

“It is a law that human freedom may not be infringed. The staging of the Plan and its working out is, in the last analysis, an entirely human affair, once it has reached the stage of precipitation. It is dependent upon the responsiveness of human brains, and their recognition of need and its sources. This is a point which should be remembered.” Discipleship in the New Age, Vol 2, Page 362

“Like everything else that happens upon the subjective plane of human living, a major distortion of the process and of the new technique will appear in some form or other in human affairs and constitute a great obstruction (apparently and temporarily) to human progress. It will be in the nature of a sidetrack and a glamour, brought into impelling and compelling use by the enemies of humanity and by those who work constantly against the Forces of Light. Today, this distortion can be seen demonstrating in all totalitarian countries; the individual is not free and his fusion with the state and his progress as a state-absorbed entity—deprived of the right of free choice and forced through fear and penalty to relinquish his own self-directed life—is a growing menace to mankind.” Discipleship in the New Age, Vol 2, Page 353

We all acknowledge that more sharing and cooperation is good as long as it is accomplished without infringing upon free will, otherwise the warning from DK would apply:

“Socialism can degenerate into another form of totalitarianism.” Rays and Initiations, Page 747

Thus all rational people can see that sharing and cooperation is good when tempered by free will but if done at the point of the sword then the end result is no more virtuous than that achieved by the Conquistadors with the native Americans.

AAB students have the same problem with the United Nations. DK spoke of the importance of cooperation among the nations and had high hopes for the U.N. Consequently many students support the United Nations with no reservations with a black and white attitude as if it can do no wrong. Whatever they do should be supported. They overlook DK’s warning:

“The United Nations is still the hope of the world and can remain so; it is a great field of experimentation, but is suffering today from an initial error. That error was the admitting of a totalitarian Power into its nations. For seven long and terrible years the Forces of Light had been fighting totalitarianism. In the early days of the post-war period the Nations compromised with principles and admitted Russia to the United Nations. Had they proceeded to unite all the other nations of the world on the sure ground of economic reform, of needed national reorganisation and of regional groups, Russia would have been forced to conform, for her very existence would have been at stake. An initial error can lead to much trouble, and it is this type of trouble which the United Nations today faces.” Externalisation of the Hierarchy, Page 640 – April 1948

Since this time, instead of putting pressure on totalitarian regimes, we have admitted more of them and are still faced with having to incorporate them instead of pressuring them toward freedom.

Again the wise student will judge the work of the U.N. through the lens of progress toward freedom and cooperation rather throwing them mindless support.

A current problem that concerns students is the issue of Brexit where the people of the UK voted to exit the European Union. Most esoteric students and those who embrace new age teachings are against Brexit and think that the UK should stay in the union, even if the majority of the people are against it. There are even groups getting together supporting meditation to influence the end result of the EU staying intact.

Why is such a high percentage of students taking this approach? Basically, it is because of the black and white unthinking approach to the ideal set forth by DK. He speaks of a future where nations will be more inclusive, cooperative and united, have loose borders and not require passports – where they will join in cooperative efforts, yet still maintain their national identity. The end result will be a fairly united one world where nations still maintain their individual identity yet cooperate together as if they are a part of the one world. This will not happen overnight but evolve over time.

Because a cooperative union is a desired goal the black and white student will tend to support any step toward union without doing any analysis of its ultimate good, or consider the free will of the people involved.

Students often forget that no good ideal is worth the sacrificing of the free will of the human spirit. This must be preserved at all costs.

Let us look at the old Soviet Union, for example. This was a union of nations which was at first supported by many esoteric students, but most finally conceded that the cost of human freedom was too great and the break up of the forced union was a good thing.

Now, through the European Union, humanity is witnessing another union of nations. Unlike the Soviet Union this one has taken place through the free will joining of the various nations. Thus, this initial union was in harmony with the principle of free will. But then the people of the UK saw the central authority of the EU became too intrusive and the benefits too few so they had a vote and the majority of the people d decided to exit the union. The vote was 52% for Brexit with 48% wanting to stay in the union.

If we then honor the free will of the people there should be no problem supporting the will of the majority. After all, if an organization is drifting toward to much central authority then it makes sense to question the value and withdraw while withdrawal is still possible.

What do you suppose DK would say about this political situation if he were to speak today to the most enlightened of the people who he called the New Group of World Servers? To get an idea let us see what the said in the past:

“They are occupied with the task of inaugurating the new world order by forming throughout the world—in every nation, city and town,—a grouping of people who belong to no party, take no sides either for or against, but who have as clear and definite a platform and as practical a programme as any other single party in the world today. They take their stand upon the essential divinity of man; their programme is founded upon good will, because it is a basic human characteristic.” Esoteric Psychology, Vol 2, Page 637

So here he tells us that these true servants of humanity will “take no sides either for or against” in partisan conflicts but instead “stand upon the essential divinity of man.” In other words, the divinity that is in humanity will eventually prevail – leading us in the right direction, but “Divinity, however, awaits the expression of man’s free will”. Reappearance of the Christ, Page 164

So, think about it. Why did he stress that the NGWS take no sides?

The reason is simple. The main goal of the NGWS is to promote goodwill among humanity for that is the key to solving the most serious problems on the planet and establishing peace on earth. If the servers therefore openly take sides and promote an issue that is opposed by half the people or more then what chance do they have in creating goodwill among that opposed half?

In fact, more than half, 52% of the people voted for Brexit. Therefore, if NGWS take a side against that 52% what chance have they of establishing goodwill among them by showing trust in their divinity that “awaits the expression of man’s free will”?

Instead, what have we? The 52% are looked upon as unenlightened near-do-wells who need to be corrected by the elite who know what’s good for them.

Do you suppose that there are no enlightened among those 52% who support Brexit? Who is to say that there are not more among the ranks of the NGWS among the pro Brexit as the anti Brexit?

How would the NGWS expect to establish goodwill among the 52% of the pro Brexit voters if they openly oppose their legal and democratic majority vote? After all, DK tells us that the NGWS and people of goodwill will be found in every religion and every political party.

At this point one may ask what are the principles involved that cause the Hierarchy to take a stand for or against a position? Unrealized by many students is the fact that they rarely take a stand. Normally, in a conflict they let both sides duke it out and merely work with the divinity in those of both sides with the idea that there will be progress toward good in the end. (See Externalization of the Hierarchy, Pages 475-477). The conflict of World War II was the exception. Here is his reasoning:

“On the basis of these distinctions, it is surely apparent that God is on the side of the allied nations, for it cannot be supposed that Christ is on the side of Hitler and the rule of cruel aggression. The spiritual Hierarchy of the planet is throwing the weight of its strength against the Axis powers just in so far as the spiritually minded peoples of the world can collaborate, for there can be no coercion of man’s free will.” Externalization of the Hierarchy, Page 187

Free will, not a forced union, is the deciding factor and the only one that causes the Hierarchy to take a side. Otherwise, disciples are advised to merely work with the divinity that is in us human beings, for once that spark is lit, goodwill will manifest and we will naturally be headed the right direction. When we therefore look at the Bexit situation we see that 52% of the people of the UK have chosen it of their own free will and this needs to be honored whether we personally agree with the decision or not. The key of wisdom here is that free will decisions will come from the divinity which is in humanity and we should trust that free will to eventually take us to a positive conclusion.

“The democracies, with all their present ineffectiveness, have in them the germ of that which is truly new, for they are the expression of an upward surging towards self-rule and self-mastery by humanity as a whole.” Externalization of the Hierarchy, Page 199

“The will of the people will then be seen in the light. It is in this connection that Great Britain will emerge into renewed activity for her personality ray and India’s soul ray are the same” (Ray One). Esoteric Psychology Vol I, Page 53

I can sympathize with those who want a united and effective European Union. It would be great if such a union were a great benefit but DK says, “Cooperative unity differs from an enforced unity in that the subjective spirit and the objective form are functioning towards one recognised end. Today, such a thing as a true democracy is unknown, and the mass of the people in the democratic countries are as much at the mercy of the politicians.” Externalization of the Hierarchy, Page 52

The key statement here is that “Cooperative unity differs from an enforced unity.” If the majority of the UK are voting against the uno then overriding that by the elite creates “an enforced unity.”

DK further States this:

“Still another reply, upon which I would ask you to ponder, is that Christ and the spiritual Hierarchy never—no matter what the incentive may be—infringe upon the divine right of humanity to achieve freedom by fighting for freedom, individually, nationally and internationally. When true freedom covers the earth, we shall see the end of tyranny, politically and religiously. I refer here not to modern democracy, which is at present a philosophy of wishful thinking, but to that state of the realm in which the people themselves will rule; these people will not tolerate authoritarianism in any church, or totalitarianism in any political system or government; they will not accept or permit the rule of any body of men who undertake to tell them what they must believe in order to be saved, or what government they must accept. Externalization of the Hierarchy, Pages 617-618

He always gives freedom the greatest weight, above unity, sharing or any other virtuous endeavor. Only in an atmosphere of freedom will ideals materialize into the dominating good. Disciples must not give into the temptation to attempt to speed the process by the exercise of undo force.

I’ll end this treatise with a digest of goals DK set forth for The New Group of World Servers:

“No word must be spoken or written which could be construed as evidencing partisanship, or as an attack upon any ruler, any form of government, or any national activity. ‘Hatred ceaseth not by hatred; hatred ceaseth by love.’

“Nothing must be published in any pamphlet, newspaper, circular or letter which could evoke antagonism from any government, any political party, any economic strategist, or any religious organisation. ONLY PRINCIPLES OF UNIVERSAL APPLICATION MUST BE EXPRESSED, AND NO PARTISANSHIP IS PERMITTED.

“Members of the New Group of World Servers are never to identify themselves with any political, religious or social propaganda. Such propaganda is separative in its effects, and breeds divisions and hatreds.”

Esoteric Psychology, Vol 2, Pages 680-682

The New Group of World Servers “constitute a third group or ‘middle party’ (to borrow a phrase from the field of politics) between those who are fighting for, and those who are fighting against, any group, religious organisation, political affiliation or form of government.” Esoteric Psychology, Vol 2, Page 676

The only exception to this. as noted earlier, is if the Principle of Freedom is at stake, for there can be no progress toward the light without it.

Investigating the Law of One

The Law of One, Part 1

I have finished reading Book One of the Law of One and will make some comments.

I first read some of the RA dialog back in the Eighties, shortly after it was published, and wasn’t impressed enough to read further at the time as the information seemed kind of ordinary. I must not have read Book One, or all of it, as this time around I found it quite interesting. Now I am wondering what part of the RA material I did read as much of this I had not read before,

Anyway, this is some of the most interesting trance channeled material I have read, even better than the Seth material. It is similar in quality to that brought forth by Delores Cannon. The source and process was somewhat different though. The RA and the Seth material accessed just one entity each, while Delores accessed many past lives and the higher consciousness of many subjects.

The problem with trance channeled material is that it bypasses the mind. The mind goes to sleep as it does when we dream and the communication takes place through the use of the astral, or the emotional body.

Communication through mental telepathy by use of the conscious mind is more accurate than through the astral body as more distortion occurs in the astral body than the mind, though neither are perfect.

It is interesting, but true that RA identifies us as “distortions” of true reality and recognizes the difficulty in truly accurate communication from the higher planes to the lower. This harmonizes with my teaching that all physical creation occurs through energies being out of balance.

As evidence of distortion you will notice that you will almost, without exception, find contradictory differences in the various trance channels, even the best of them.

This takes us back to the prime directive of all my teachings which is this. No matter how high or valid you think the source is, even God himself, run all things by your own soul, as your true inner voice is your most reliable source.

Even here the seeker can be wrong, and mistake the higher astral for the voice of the soul, but at least he is heading the right direction, and, once perfected, he will develop a high sense of discerning the true from the false.

The problem for the seeker in sorting out truth when there is a lot of data involved is the language of the soul is the language of principles., The soul always leads the lower self toward the understanding of the principle behind things or why a certain idea is true. It is strong on the wisdom aspect. To accurately discern the truth of data, such as past history, would require the ability to access and accurately read the Akashic records – something which no mortal I know can do, though many claim this ability.

That said, let us look at the Law of One with dispassion, just as we would any other channeled material, scriptures, Theosophical related works or any claimed inspiration.

First, let me say that the material is a product of intelligence that exceeds normal human consciousness and as such contains much that is true. It is of a high enough grade that the seeker may be tempted to accept all that is said without question. To this one should never acquiesce. For me, there are certain writings to which I give a lot of weight, but I never let my guard down and always question anything that does not make sense or that does not register with my soul.

That said, let me point out positive and negative aspects of RA’s The Law of One. We’ll start with the positive.

(1) The source is a high grade of intelligence and the questions asked were also of high quality. When RA said something confusing the person asked for clarification, such as RA calling a solar system a galaxy.

(2) It covers numerous mysteries to which many question, such as ancient history, the beginning of life, the pyramids, life on Mars and Venus, higher dimensions etc. RA gives credible answers on all these things.

(3) RA gives very interesting explanations and comes up with instant information with very little hesitation.

(4) Unlike most channeled material RA touches on a number of principles and expands on them.

(5) He correctly identifies the core difference between the light and the dark side – the light being service to others and the dark being service to self. This is an important distinction.

(6) The general direction of the teachings would lead the seeker toward love and service rather than to glamor and the implication of the ego.

(7) Whether you accept the source as valid or not RA gives much material that is good food for thought and, when contemplated on, can lead the seeker to greater light. It is good material for seekers to read through the light of the soul.

To be continued…

Law of One, Part 2

The RA material certainly gives one much to think about. I like the fact that it discusses concepts and ideas as well as the presentation of data. The soul can more easily guide the seeker in discovering truth behind principles, whereas the akashic records must be accessed or a revelation received to verify data.

Even so, we can use our common sense and reasoning minds to get a general idea of how accurate the data is.

Overall, I think the RA material is about as accurate as any of the trance channeled material out there, but, like anything else, one must run the teachings by his reasoning mind and soul.

The first thing I do with any channeled or revealed material is to see how it registers with my soul. This material did not register as perfect but good enough that I was encouraged to read all the books and contemplate the material.

The second thing I do is look to see if any specific predictions have been made and whether or not they have come true. This is sometimes difficult to ascertain as some writers go back and edit out false predictions once the date has past so it is always best to have the original material available. Fortunately, it does look like we have the original RA writings.

The first RA book was written in 1981 and most channeled material around that time was predicting apocalyptic type events before the end of the millennium. Many were predicting a shift of the axis, great destruction, the coming of Christ, great earth changes – all kinds of things that did not happen. Many channelers were wrong not with just one prediction, but all of them.

Wrong predictions, of course, do not mean all their other writings were wrong, but it does indeed signal that one must examine all other writings with a skeptical, or at least an analytical eye.

The problem with predictions is that not even a master can predict all the details of the future. Higher lives can examine cycles and causes leading to the future and be quite accurate in many instances, but, because of free will cannot accurately tell us all details of future events.

When some revelator therefore, gives a lot of specifics about future events, you can be pretty sure he is caught up in some illusion and there will be numerous flaws in his material.

Smart prophets will write like Isaiah or Nostradamus where their writings lack specifics, but can be interpreted numerous different ways. Believers can never be proven wrong.

RA was wise in that a number of times he avoided giving specifics about the future correctly pointing out that free will is at play. He was asked about future evens of the new millennium he indicated that there could be big earth changes around the turn of the century but was not specific. He did though give one specific prophesy.

In 1981 he predicted that within 30 years the earth and its people would go through a harvesting and the people would shift from third density life to the fourth density.

Now RA says there are a number of densities or dimensions in consciousness. He is a sixth density being, much higher in evolution than an ordinary human who is third density. Just to give you an idea of how far up the sixth density is he says that Jesus was a fifth density entity, an octave below himself.

So, around the year of 2011 humanity was supposed to enter the fourth density. In this density the people of earth would understand the Law of One and live in oneness, peace, love and understanding. There would be many other changes. For instance, he indicated we would not use cars (called “heavy chemical vehicles”) to get from one place to another.

As we approached 2011 believers in the RA material saw that as so close to the Mayan prediction of 2012 that many figured they were the one and the same.

Carla Rueckert, who channeled the Law of One material, later earmarked the Mayan date of 2012 as the time of transition. She wrote quite a bit about this in her 2009 book, “Living the Law of One.”

As I write this it is February 2019, significantly beyond either 2011 or 2012 and if anything we have moved away from love and unity as a civilization rather than entering a higher realm of peace and understanding. People are at each others throats in political disagreements as never before in my memory.

Believers refuse to admit that RA was mistaken but see the transition date as merely being postponed because of humanity’s free will. On the other hand, RA told us that the time for such matters is based on cycles that are set. He said:

“The timing of these cycles is a measurement equal to a portion of intelligent energy. This intelligent energy offers a type of clock. The cycles move as precisely as a clock strikes your hour. Thus, the gateway from intelligent energy to intelligent infinity opens regardless of circumstance on the striking of the hour.”

The hard fact is that RA was just plain wrong any way you look at it and even if there is to be a future transition of some kind he significantly overestimated his ability to predict an event.

This tells us that RA is most likely not an entity who is higher up the ladder than Jesus.

In fact he was not even able to predict more accurately than myself.

This is from a class I gave in 2007:

“A lot of the new agers are as bad as the Christians in that they are expecting the world to end, but they have an exact date of 2012. A lot of people think that the world is going to end, flying saucers are going to come down or something crazy is going to happen then.

“This is merely the end of the Mayan calendar and some people think that because it is the end of the Mayan calendar – that means the end of the world. I think that it is just the last date the Mayans had on their calendar – that’s what I personally think. It’s actually going to be a fairly pivotal time – it’s between the two ages – just as we are entering the Aquarian Age. So, it could be a significant time, but its not going to be the end of the world.

“2011 will probably be as significant as 2012 and 2013 – if you pick those three years as to which one is the most significant – the chances are that 2011 and 2013 will be just as significant, but it is an important time period – were in a time of transition and during the next 20 or 30 years we’re approaching a point of tension that will determine whether we are going into the new age peacefully or unpeacefully. We are in danger of entering a world war III that could put us back a thousand years, but the plan of the Hierarchy is to avoid that and have a transition period that is going to have some difficulties, but we will surmount those difficulties and go into the new age and have a new age of peace that’s going to be the best age in our recorded history.”

This was from a class at the 2007 Gathering.

“My feeling about 2012 is that it is a point taking us into the Age of Aquarius. I don’t think there is anything magical with 2012 over 2011. From what I understand it was the end of their calendar and they saw this as the end of an age rather than the end of the world. It could be an intense time period. Let me see. It is now 2007… we could have some interesting things happen by that time. I see a larger turning point occurring around 2025-2030, which I see as an intense period of change.”

Back in 2007 everyone in the new age and metaphysical movements were predicting big changes in 2012, whereas I said 2012 would not be any more significant than 2011 or 2013.

I am usually very cautious about making predictions because the future is so fluid, but there are some things I am intuitively very sure will not happen.

Some people get upset when you tell them that their favorite predictions will not happen. Almost twenty years ago a fan of my writings wrote me and asked me why I was not preparing people for the arrival of Nibiru, the famous planet X that was supposed to bring on the Apocalypse.

I told her that I wasn’t warning people about it because there was no planet X that was going to arrive in the foreseeable future.

This statement did not harmonize with her belief system and I never heard from her again.

Prophesy is impossible to get right 100% unless the key ingredients are under the control of the one making the prediction or strongly based on natural cycles or trends. There are only a handful of inspired writers that were able to score with 50% accuracy. If someone can be that accurate I will pay attention to his or her words. A lot of people claim to be quite accurate, but when you examine their original words and compare them with actual happenings we find that few can reach this 50% level.

 

Law of One, Part 3

I have to give the RA material credit for being interesting reading. To its credit it does touch on some principles, but most of the material consists of data that is impossible to verify unless one has access to the Akashic records. One can, however apply the Principles of Discovery, that I have enumerated in the past, and sort out some things that are likely to be true or false.

Predictions that have past their due date are the easiest ones to verify. By 2011-12 humanity was supposed to enter the fourth density where those remaining would be centered on love and have enhanced bodies that could teleport themselves and not need regular transportation. There would be such a change that the lifespan would be increased to a whopping 90,000 years.

That obviously didn’t happen. I see that new RA material has been released in 2018. I have not read it yet but am sure they give a reason that the “harvest” to the fourth density has been delayed, or perhaps we did not correctly understand the process.

One of the core teachings of RA is that life exists in eight different densities. This somewhat corresponds to the seven planes plus a synthesis as taught by the Ancient Wisdom, but with some differences.

According to RA the first density is fire, wind, earth and water interacting to lay the foundation for life.

The second density consists of plants and animals.

The third density is the present human kingdom.

The fourth density consists of beings of love and understanding who live in harmony.

The fifth is higher light and wisdom.

The sixth is a unification of love and wisdom and this is where RA’s confederation resides.

The seventh is pretty much beyond words, but these beings are in total harmony with the creator.

Finally, we have an eighth dimension or density which is assumed to be the first of a new octave of densities.

We are told that there is a special governing council in this density living on the rings of Saturn. Though anything is possible that indeed sounds somewhat fanciful and from a creative imagination.

The seven planes of the Ancient Wisdom are somewhat different. They are the physical, astral, metal, intuitional, Atmic (divine ideas), the originating monad and divine space. Corresponding to the eighth would be the cosmic physical. The ones with this high consciousness would be high beings such as the Ancient of Days who resides on earth in Shamballa or the Solar Logos and associates. The Logos of Saturn would have access to this high state, but it does seem odd to place him in the rings.

RA goes through the seven colors of the spectrum and identifies them sequentially with the densities as well as the human centers. Thus he says the centers from the base of the spine upwards are related to red, orange, yellow, green, blue, indigo and violet.

Many new agers assume that this is the case, but DK gives a different rendering which I believe is accurate. Here they are:

  1. The base of the spine. Four petals. These petals are in the shape of a cross, and radiate with orange fire. Ray 4
  2. Sacral Center Six Petals – Red with possibly some orange. Ray 7
  3. —The solar plexus. Ten petals. The colour rosy, with an admixture of green. Ray 6
  4. The heart centre. Twelve petals. Colour glowing golden. Ray 2
  5. The throat centre. Sixteen petals. Colour silvery blue, the blue predominating. Ray 3

6 & 7 The head centres. These are in a twofold division;—

a—Between the eyebrows. Ninety-six petals. Colour, one-half of the lotus is rose and yellow, and the other half is blue and purple. Ray 5

b—The top of the head. There are twelve major petals of white and gold, and 960 secondary petals are arranged around the central twelve. This makes a total of 1068 petals in the two head centres, or 356 triplicities. All these figures have an occult significance. Ray 1

See Letters on Occult Meditation, pages 77-78

RA says the age of the Great Pyramid is 6000 years. Orthodox science estimates the age to be around 4500 years. On the other hand, Edgar Cayce says it was over 12,000 years old. Others put the age much older. This seems to be a subject that neither worldly or other worldly investigators can agree on.

I could go on pointing out positive and negative points in the material, but believe I have given out enough so the investigator can check out the teachings for himself and make up his own mind.

A final question that needs to be addressed is this. Who or what is RA and where does he really come from?

I do not believe that the three people involved in the channeled material just deceptively made him up. It appears to me that RA’s intelligence was beyond their own. Neither do I think he is an entity or group purely from the sixth density as he says. Instead, here is my view:

There were three individuals involved who were Allen McCarty, Don Elkins, and Carla Rueckert and were good friends enjoying a common goal of higher contact. This union caused a blending of the energies of their Higher Selves. They were seeking contact through trance channeling which has to be done through the astral body. Their united desires created a thoughtform on the astral/desire plane. This thoughtform was not the Higher Self, but drew intelligence from it as well as information from the minds of the three individuals.

RA was thus a created being composed of elements of reflected higher selves and the combined consciousness of the three individuals .

RA said a number of times that he scanned the mind of the questioner. Indeed he had available the scanned minds of all three at any given moment plus some insights from higher realms.

There are mistakes because RA’s consciousness could not exceed the combined consciousness of the three individuals who were drawing some intelligence from their combined higher selves.

In closing I will give readers the advice I have given out many times. Study all teachings through the light of your own soul, even if you are sure they come from the highest possible source. Nothing will speak to you with more truth than your own Higher Self. If your inner voice rejects a teaching then put it aside. If it registers it as true then place that in the truth section of your mind. If you get nothing positive or negative then go with your common sense or put it on the shelf. The seeker who does not give up but continues will eventually find what he or she is looking for.

Update on the Law of One

In my post about the RA material I said this as my conclusion of its source:

“There were three individuals involved who were Allen McCarty, Don Elkins, and Carla Rueckert and were good friends enjoying a common goal of higher contact. This union caused a blending of the energies of their Higher Selves. They were seeking contact through trance channeling which has to be done through the astral body. Their united desires created a thoughtform on the astral/desire plane. This thoughtform was not the Higher Self, but drew intelligence from it as well as information from the minds of the three individuals.

“RA was thus a created being composed of elements of reflected higher selves and the combined consciousness of the three individuals.”

I said this after reading Book One. Since then I am finishing up Book Five so have a pretty good grasp of the material. What is interesting is that in Book Five I find statements that back up my conclusion. Here are two quotes:

Quote One:

“The death of Don Elkins, questioner for the Ra contacts, in November of 1984, marked the end of the Ra contact because it was the harmony between the three of us which was the primary factor that allowed those of Ra to speak through our group.”

Quote Two:

“…contact with Ra that gave us the Law Of One material, because it was the combined energy of us three that contacted Ra, not myself as channel, or any one of us as L/L Research, or even L/L Research as an entity. This is clear from the simple dates: Jim came to L/L permanently on December 23, 1980, and we received our first contact from those of Ra on January 15, 1981, less than three weeks after Jim moved in. And Donald felt from the first session with Ra that this was his life’s work, the culmination of all he had been through since the 50s, and his gift to the world.”

Don Elkins was the main initiator of the project and gathered together a triangle, a trinity, of individuals which produces a natural point of power when they are united. As they continued with the channeling they were said to be attacked from the to time by dark forces which appeared to culminate in 1984 when Don was struggling with them and decided to commit suicide to end it.

After that, the medium, Carla Rueckert, lost contact with RA. Most channels are only dependent on themselves for spiritual contact, but this was different. That difference of a group channel caused material to come through that was higher than normal. Instead of working through one individual, the RA thoughtform had the minds of three individuals to scan as well as any information that could be accessed from things filtered down from their higher selves.

The result was information that has a lot of truth, but has errors mixed in. The big one was the prediction that we would be harvested to the fourth density around 2011-12.

An interesting contradiction occurs on the date of the Great Pyramid. In book one we are told that it was built 6,000 years ago, but then in book five a question was asked about it, while mentioning Edgar Cayce. In this case the date was 12,000 years ago which is in harmony with Cayce’s revelations. In this case a different date was given, most probably because RA scanned their minds and came up with the date given by Cayce.

Overall, I will conclude this. The intelligence of RA is the combined intelligence of the three people involved plus contact of their higher selves that was able to be filtered through the astral plane. It will be profitable if read through the light of the soul, but if the reader accepts every word as divine truth then he or she will incorporate some error within the belief system.

Truth and Inclusiveness

If someone is overweight and you blurt out that they are fat your are telling the truth. If they complain about your wording just stating that you are telling the truth is no excuse for your words. In addition, the person will want to avoid you and you should understand why. If you are really concerned about the person being fat instead of stating the truth in the most offensive way you could suggest some healthy foods that will make them feel and look better.

If I were in your situation (which I have been numerous times in my life) instead of accusing others of not being inclusive, blocking you, not willing to work with you etc I would ask myself why this is happening and what I can do about it? There are those who like your spunky personality and maybe you haven’t reached out enough to individual persons. Maybe with the right approach you can achieve more than you think.

To be inclusive does not mean you take everyone within your aura. If this were the case one would accept a marriage proposal from an abusive person. Inclusiveness balances against the principle of discernment and selection. For instance, we do not invite those who seem to have no soul contact into this group as it would destroy the possibility of creating a molecule. On the other hand, the principle of inclusiveness will cause us not to reject anyone because of race, sex, personality etc who is really trying and wants to be included. Then eventually the working molecule will only include those who can tune into the group soul contact, overlook personality flaws and see all others in the molecule as souls.

Heroes of the Past

Just look at history for the truth of this one. Jesus was crucified as a criminal and only had 120 followers after his resurrection, Galileo was charged with being a heretic, Ignaz Semmelweis who warned the world that doctors needed to wash their hands because of some invisible microbe was sent to a mental institution. Lincoln was called a tyrant by not only the Confederate states but by about half of the people in the North and the press, specially the New York Times, attacked him without mercy comparing him to an ape.

The great people of the past were rarely appreciated at the time but on hindsight it is easy to see that what they were doing was right. Even so it is today. Many initiates are struggling against the grain and seen as evil when they are working on the side of progress and reason.

The Kingdom Within

Concerning Luke 17:21 which states: “the kingdom of God is within you” where some say within does not really mean within – let me add this

“Within” in this verse comes from the Greek ENTOS which definitely means “within” or “in the midst thereof.” It is derived from the Greek word EN which implies inward, the opposite of EKTOS meaning without.

Both ENTOS and EKTOS are used in this verse:

“Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within (ENTOS) the cup and platter, that the outside (EKTOS) of them may be clean also.” Matt 23:26

Positive and Negative Poles

Every force corresponds to the two basic ones which are positive and negative. The positive and negative combinations produce many differentiations but, still, all such differentiations are reduced to two, which at the end of a cycle of creation are reduced to the one.

The positive corresponds to male, sending, radiation, light and forces that push from the center outward such as the dark energy which is causing the expansion of the universe.

The negative corresponds to female, gravity, magnetism, love, the strong and weak force.

Fulfillment

I posted this quote: “Fulfillment comes when the seeker realizes that there is a plan, catches a glimpse, and decides to play a part in its manifestation.”

To this a reader said, “there seems to be a negation of free will, if we’re all involved in some grand scheme. And therefore, whether we take part in it’s manifestation or not becomes irrelevant.”

My response:

Free will does not mean you have all power. A part of the universal plan are the cycles of night and day, but because you cannot prevent the sun from coming up does not mean you do not have free will. You have free will within your sphere of power, consciousness, or ring-pass-not.

Lesser intelligences always operate within a larger sphere of a plan of a higher intelligence, but if that greater intelligence is in the light then the seeker will have free will within his own sphere of power.

And what we do does matter because the greater lives depend on the lesser to manifest their portion of the plan, just as you depend on the cells in your body to function.

The Coming Revelation

A reader pointed out that DK did not say specifically that the new teachings after 2025 would come from him. I did some searching and it seems that he did not say who would be giving out the teachings. Here are two quotes I found about the coming teachings. I know I’ve read about more than thus in the past, but can’t find them at this time. I suspect that DK will play a major roll in the coming revelation.

“I can, however, attempt to give you certain concepts, relationships and parallels which may serve to close this section on astrology and lay a foundation for future teaching around the year 2025.” Esoteric Astrology, Page 589

“Occasionally (usually once in a century after Their Conclave at the close of the first quarter [2025]) there is the imparting of a more advanced body of teaching. This teaching will only be recognised by a few of the foremost disciples in the world; it will, however, prove to be the ordinary form of occult teaching during the next developing cycle. It is this type of work which I have been endeavouring to do with the aid of A.A.B.” Discipleship in the New Age, Vol 2, Page 318

Understanding Grievances

To understand what a grievance is. Perhaps first one must understand what it is not.

If a person considers another person to be a distracting personality that he wishes to ignore that does not mean he has a grievance. I encounter many people I want to ignore but have absolutely no grievance against them.

If I go to buy a car and encounter an irritating high pressure salesman I will not have hurt feelings, but just go on to another lot and buy a car there. If I meet the guy in a grocery store and he starts up a conversation still there are no hurt feelings.

Hurt feelings come when you think you have been wronged and you blame the other guy in a way that causes negative feelings to well up inside of you. If, for instance, you have negative feelings you cannot dispel about people who have blocked you then that would be a grievance. If you do not and can care less about their reaction then there would be no grievance.

If someone who has blocked you but able to participate with you in a gathering but without hurt feelings then there would be no blockage of energy.

The fact is that all of us are attracted to some types of people and not to others. There are many people I want to avoid, but none of them have power to cause me to have a grievance.

To see the Christ in another does not mean that you do not recognize personality differences, but it does lead to overcoming grievances.

The Real Threat

Good article by Davis Borsos and I share his concern, but it amazes me that his biggest worry is human caused emissions when the planet has had over ten times the current level of CO2 and life has thrived. No where does DK warn of manmade climate change. Let us look at what he does warn us about:

“The release of atomic energy has not only put into human hands a potent force which will inevitably bring in a new and better way of life, but also a terrible weapon, CAPABLE OF WIPING THE HUMAN FAMILY OFF THE FACE OF THE EARTH. … The responsibility for its control must lie in the hands of the men of goodwill. They must control its destiny and make it available along constructive lines for the use of men everywhere.” Problems of Humanity, Pages 81-82

Again and again he talks about the saving power of goodwill that must be established between peoples, nations and groups. China, Russia, North Korea and others pose a terrible nuclear threat and goodwill is our best weapon to defuse the situation.

DK’s teachings on goodwill is what we need to promote, starting with our own political houses which need to quit demonizing each other.

Universal Healthcare Lost

Feb 7, 2019

Universal Healthcare Lost

Would you say that we have universal healthcare if we had a system that all could afford, even if one worked for minimum wage or was a fruit picker working for piece work with imported Hispanics?

Let us say that a fruit picker had an accident where he wound up spending three months in the hospital involving six operations, yet had no problem paying for the whole thing. Does that sound like the best system ever?

Yes, it does. This was what we once had and we let this utopia slip from our fingers for a bowl of porridge offered to us by Big Brother.

We had such a wonderful system back in 1958 when I had an accident with a homemade rocket exploding that indeed put me in the situation just described.

This happened at the worst possible time. My parents had just divorced and my Dad took off to central America, not to be heard from for years and giving us no support. We had no food stamps no welfare, no child support, no medical insurance and no skills in making money. To make money, my mother, younger sister and I picked fruit in the summer and my mother worked for minimum wage in a potato plant during the rest of the year.

After the explosion I spent eight hours in surgery and a month in the hospital. Then a short time later I had a second surgery requiring a few extra hospital days.

I was quite concerned about the cost to my mother for something that was my fault and discovered that my cost there was $8 a day. There were other rooms that cost $12 and $14 a day, but I had a cheaper one because it was a ward shared with others.

Even so, eight dollars a day in 1958 seemed like a lot for someone in our situation. That’s about $70 in 2019 dollars. On top of this we had the surgery costs and office visits.

We, of course, could not pay it off all at once, but over time we paid the whole thing by picking fruit, working near minimum wage and me mowing laws on the side.

Then, later I had four corrective surgeries by a specialist that required an additional two months in the hospital. To cover the costs my savvy mom found a private charity that paid for the whole thing.

If this happened under today’s system the overall bill would be around a half million dollars and there is no way that a fruit picker could handle it, even if he had good insurance that paid 80%.

Indeed, we used to have a universal health care system, in other words, a system that all could afford and it required no payments to the IRS taken out of paychecks to cover Medicare – neither did it require the government to borrow money to supplement healthcare.

What happened that destroyed such a fair system?

It happened when the government stepped into help in 1965 when Medicare was introduced. It was supposed to help with medical costs, but from that point on they increased exponentially.

Medicare seemed like a good idea to many, especially in consideration of the cost projections at the time. The public was sold on the idea that Medicare’s $3 billion cost in 1966 would only reach an inflation-adjusted $12.0 billion by 1990. Instead, the actual cost in 1990 was a whopping $67 billion. The “experts” were off by 7.44 times. Total Medicare spending reached $440 billion for fiscal year 2007, or 16 percent of all federal spending. Since that time, spending has continued to rise and Obamacare is sending taxpayer costs through the roof.

The only larger categories of federal spending are Social Security and defense.

Would the public have supported socialized medicine if they could have seen what they would loose?

Certainly not.

Unfortunately, young people today have no sense of history, of what a financial paradise health costs were when before 1965.

Back then doctors often put patients a couple days in the hospital for observation. Because costs were so low the payment was no problem. Now, even with insurance, no one goes into the hospital unless absolutely necessary.

Today people are often complaining about the price of gas, but when I had my accident in 1958 the price of a gallon of gas was 40 cents a gallon. In today’s money that is equivalent to $3.48. These supposedly greedy oil companies are now selling gas for as cheap as $2.06 a gallon at the time of this writing in my city. Consumers are winning in that they are buying this product below the cost of inflation.

On the other hand, if you spend a day in the supposedly non-profit hospitals you can expect to pay around $4000. That far exceeds the inflation of the $8.00 I was paying, which would be $70 today. In fact it is 57 times the cost of inflation.

If gas went up the same amount we would be paying almost $200.00 a gallon.

So much for the benefits of being non-profit and benefitting from government help.

Help like this is something we can certainly do without.

A question a real seeker of truth may ask here is which has worked better in proven reality? Has it been free market capitalism in bringing us oil or socialism replacing the free market in bringing us medical services?

Notes on the Sabbath

Dec 26, 2018

Notes on the Sabbath

Comment from H. P. Blavatsky

That the word “Sabbath” had a mystic significance is shown in the contempt shown by Jesus for the Sabbath day, and by what is said in Luke xviii. 12. Sabbath is there taken for the whole week. (See Greek text where the week is called Sabbath. “I fast twice in the Sabbath.”) Paul, an Initiate, knew it well when referring to the eternal rest and felicity in heaven, as Sabbath; “and their happiness will be eternal, for they will ever be (one) with the Lord and will enjoy an eternal Sabbath.” (Hebrew iv. 2.) Secret Doctrine Vol 1 Pg 240

It is interesting that the Greek word from when the English translation comes did not always refer to a certain day. Take note of these scriptures where the Greek SABBATON is used which is the same translated as Sabbath throughout the New Testament.

Luke 18:12: I fast twice in the week (SABBATON), I give tithes of all that I possess. 18:13 And the publican, standing afar off, would not lift up so much as his eyes unto heaven, but smote upon his breast, saying, God be merciful to me a sinner.

Acts 20:7 And upon the first day of the week (SABBATON), when the disciples came together to break bread, Paul preached unto them, ready to depart on the morrow; and continued his speech until midnight.

Now upon the first day of the week, (SABBATON), very early in the morning, they came unto the sepulchre, bringing the spices which they had prepared, and certain others with them. Luke 24:1

Upon the first day of the week (SABBATON), let every one of you lay by him in store, as God hath prospered him, that there be no gatherings when I come. I Cor 16:2

Here it sounds like Paul is referring to three consecutive days as three Sabbaths.

Acts 17:1 Now when they had passed through Amphipolis and Apollonia, they came to Thessalonica, where was a synagogue of the Jews:

Acts 17:2 And Paul, as his manner was, went in unto them, and three sabbath days reasoned with them out of the scriptures,

Acts 17:3 Opening and alleging, that Christ must needs have suffered, and risen again from the dead; and that this Jesus, whom I preach unto you, is Christ.

Maybe the variety of uses of the word is the reason Paul told us to not judge people on how they interpret their Sabbath days:

Let no man therefore judge you in meat, or in drink, or in respect of an holyday, or of the new moon, or of the sabbath days. Col 2:16

Some think the early Mormons recognized Saturday as the Sabbath, but the record reveals otherwise:

We found a number in the neighborhood still believing, and now anxious to be baptized. We appointed a meeting for the Sabbath, and on the afternoon of Saturday we erected a dam across a stream of water, which was convenient, for the purpose of there attending to the ordinance of baptism; but during the night a mob collected and tore down our dam, which hindered us from attending to the baptism on the Sabbath. We afterward found out that this mob had been instigated to this act of molestation by certain sectarian priests of the neighborhood, who began to consider their craft in danger, and took this plan to stop the progress of the truth; and the sequel will show how determinedly they prosecuted their opposition, as well as to how little purpose in the end. The Sabbath arrived, and we held our meeting. DHC 1:86

There are many references in Joseph’s recorded history in his own words referring to Sunday as the Sabbath. Here are three of many I could present if necessary.

October 5.–I started on a journey to the east, and to Canada, in company with Elders Rigdon and Freeman Nickerson, and arrived the same day at Lamb’s tavern, in Ashtabula; and the day following, the Sabbath, (Sunday, Oct 6) we arrived in Springfield DHC 1:416

On the 2nd, (Sunday, March 2, 1834) which was the Sabbath, Brother Parley P. Pratt preached, and I spoke in the evening; we had a good meeting. DHC 2:41

August 2nd, (1835) being the Sabbath, I preached a part of the day. (Aug 2, 1835 was on a Sunday) DHC 2:239
