Enduring the Presence
Readers are still questioning why the presence of a higher being could generate fear.
Refer back to my analogy on temperature and apply it to vibration. The higher the life in evolution the higher the vibration and the greater the adjustment necessary to endure the presence.
For instance of Moses it was written
“By faith he (Moses) forsook Egypt, not fearing the wrath of the king: for he endured, as seeing him who is invisible.” Heb 11:27
Notice that the writer of the scripture admires Moses for enduring the presence of God (or the Master he was working with). He points out that anyone who has the courage and fortitude to do this certainly would not fear the king of Egypt.
The reason is that it takes more courage to enter into the spiritual presence of one of the Great Ones than it does to risk certain death by offending absolute ruler on earth.
But you may ask, “I know of lots of people who have seen higher beings and there was no fear.”
99% of all such visions are from either the astral world or an encounter with a thought form and these do not have a high vibration and create no cause for alarm. Even a Master from the 5th Kingdom can visit you physically with no alarming exchange of vibration. But if you go to the higher lives in the spirit and see or experience them as they are the vibration difference will be alarming for the first several encounters. Also, if a Master connects with you in the Spirit you will note a high vibration that needs a period of adjustment. If a Master decides to admit you into his ashram you will first be sent a flow of energy of higher vibration to give you time to adjust. This adjustment can be disturbing at first – a little like getting into a hot bath. It’s discomforting at first but after you adjust it is OK.
Then after the disciple makes adjustments in vibration he or she is admitted to the group. If the ashram were to let you in without the adjustment you may either suffer death or go insane.
Lives higher than the Masters of the 5th kingdom are more intense still and their vibration can definitely create some fear at first. For instance, if you started to enter your tub and discovered the water was actually boiling you would be justifiable afraid to enter. Your body would have to undergo some type of change to enter such heat and if someone told you that you could enter safely you would have natural doubts, This would require a great act of faith in whoever told you to enter the boiling water.
Even so, high entities of light on the first Ray have this effect and this fear is what Moses had to overcome.
There is one person who joined this group who encountered a portion of this First Ray energy and that was Alley who created the artwork for my web page. I think it may have scared her off the group as we have not heard from her for some time. I think she may have had some type of assignment waiting for her.
Even though the vibration of higher lives is very intense the person receiving them will inherently know that they are on the side of good because the vibration will be recognized by the inner most part of themselves as desirable to attain.
All Things Being Equal?
Several thoughts concerning fear.
Without fear there is no courage and without courage there is no point of tension and with no point of tension there are no quantum leaps into newness and great adventures.
Perfect love casteth out fear, but it does not prevent the pilgrim from encountering and facing the fear.
There is a certain amount of illusion behind most fears, but there is also great illusion behind most proclamations of love. Unraveling the real fear and mastering it is as important as discovering the real love of God and accepting it.
The most important fear to master is the fear of fear, for he who fears fear will pretend to himself that he has no fear in any circumstances. Fear thus becomes a seed growing in the dark seeking the light of day.
The question: “What do we mean when we say that “good dominates?”
“Why do you suppose it is true that good dominates in the end and how can a knowledge of this help us to overcome the primal fear which is a fear of loss?”
All of creation takes place because of an interplay of positive and negative (male-female) forces. Most teachers believe that these two forces are exactly equal and balance each other out and therefore there is no such thing as good and evil in the scheme of things.
Why is this an illusionary belief? Are the positive and negative (good and evil) exactly equal? If not then what does this have to do with the creation of the dominating good? What would happen if the dualities were exactly equal?
The Power of Creation
Question: “If all of creation takes place because of an interplay of positive and negative (male-female) forces how do you explain cell reproduction with no sex?
The activity within the organism responsible for the growth of the new cell takes place as a result of positive and negative (male-female) forces. Without this interplay of forces there would be no cell to even reproduce.
Nothing is neutral in the world of form. Some believe that stable atoms, neutrons and cells are neutral, but they all will have a small charge either positive or negative.
No two things in the world of form are exactly identical but are close enough that the differences are not perceptible. No copy of anything is exact but again is close enough that the differences are not perceptible.
Even before the child displays physical sex his creation takes place through the interplay of positive and negative (male-female) forces., originating of course with the interplay of the male and female in the sex act itself.
From the one God did come the two (male female). But when there was one there was no creation. There was only creation when we had the two in order to have the interplay.
By the way, the ancient wisdom (HPB I believe) also teaches that there is no such thing as a number one unless you have a two. You either have zero or unlimited numbers because if you have one you have to have an originating source of the one which also makes two.
Also if you have one you also have zero which also makes two concepts.
Question: How then did two occur from one … if it wasn’t creation ..
As Blavatsky said if there is one there has to be two. The first creation, if there was such a thing, would have to have a second force acting upon it making a correspondence of male and female energy.
Now let us suppose there was a time (or no time) when there was no creation. Would there still be a duality? Here is an interesting quote from my book.
“It was an amazing feeling, or non-feeling, and even though there was a time that decision existed with no creation, I sensed that there were universes beyond and before creation, as we know it, and I could retrieve no information about them. I did sense that God, or Decision, existed in a point beyond and before time and space. Before this point were two possibilities. They were the possibility of Something, and Nothing, or the possibility of Creation or No Creation.
Suddenly an inspiring phrase came to me. “It was the decision to be or not to be. That is the question!”
So even before form and space existed there was still a duality – the possibility of nothing (female) and the possibility of something (male) or the decision to be or not to be.
Question: How is female nothing and male something?
The seen, the radiant, that which is in motion, the out breath corresponds to male. The invisible, the magnetic, the involution, the in breath corresponds to female. Wherever there is two there is one that corresponds to male and the other to female. That which we call nothing is an esoteric something.
