Facing the Dweller
Question: You write about a world Dweller faced by Christ as well as a personal one. How does one face somebody else’s Dweller?
JJ: Christ did not face someone else’s Dweller, but faced the world Dweller for the human kingdom of which he was an integral part. In a very real way “the souls of men are one.” Just as my mouth can speak for me and say “I am JJ,” but is far from the whole body, even so can one person represent the human kingdom as a whole in various capacities.
Question: How was Christ able to face the Dweller of the world?
JJ: When a disciple is ready to face his individual Dweller or even a greater Dweller of a body of which he forms a part he will not go looking for the Dweller, but the Dweller will come to him.
The Dweller is composed of primitive life energies and is an actual life form. As with all lives it seeks with all its being to preserve its life. It is the opposite of your Solar Angel or your Higher Self. It could have been named the lower self, but the Dweller on the Threshold is a very accurate name because no person becomes fully aware of its existence until he reaches the threshold of higher contact. When this threshold is reached the Dweller begins to fear for its life and existence, and does everything in its power to prevent you from going higher. It realizes that if you face the Angel of the Presence that your attention will make a shift and thus no longer feed the Dweller with the life-giving energy it needs to continue existence.
This is then the reason that the Dweller comes looking for the disciple when the time is right and that the struggle the pilgrim has with it is so profound. The Dweller’s entire existence (as it sees it) is predicated on discouraging the seeker – and unfortunately he is often successful.
Question: What did he do to defeat this Dweller at the garden?
JJ: He held firm in his consciousness the highest conception of the Will of God of which he was aware and stood firm at that point in the will and faced that which he feared and did not move from it.
This was illustrated in his words:
“Not my will but thine be done.”
His personality self wanted to run from the experience with every fiber of its being, but the Christ, standing in the will of the Father, let his faith in the dominating good override any fear of destruction.
A mantra that will help those who feel they may be approaching an experience with the Dweller was given out by Djwhal Khul through Alice A. Bailey called “The Affirmation of the Disciple” which reads:
I am a point of light within a greater Light.
I am a strand of loving energy within the stream of love divine.
I am a point of sacrificial Fire, focussed within the fiery Will of God.
And thus I stand.
I am a way by which men may achieve.
I am a source of strength, enabling them to stand.
I am a beam of light, shining upon their way.
And thus I stand.
And standing thus revolve
And tread this way the ways of men,
And know the ways of God.
And thus I stand.”
The key phrase in preparation for the Dweller is the phrase:
“And thus I stand.”
Standing firm and facing the Dweller us the key to victory.
Question: By facing the world’s Dweller, how was Christ able to establish a link for us with the Shamballa energy?
JJ: The Dweller on an individual level creates a cloud of illusion between the seeker and the Angel of the Presence. When the cloud created by the Dweller is dispersed then it is realized that the Angel has always been there. Even so, it is with the world Dweller. The presence of the Ancient of Days and Shamballa is always with us but this fact does not seem so, or is not realized, because of the illusion created by the barriers placed by the world Dweller.
When Christ faced the higher Dweller and realized the illusion created thereby, the dispelling then of such illusion created a point where light could penetrate. That penetrating light through the veil of illusion established the needed link with the Highest center on the planet – Shamballa.
Question: Wasn’t there a link already established as part of the molecular hierarchy?
When Christ was suffering in the Garden and near the point of death it is written that an angel came and strengthened him. This angel was the molecular link while Christ was on the earth. This angel was not a permanent resident of Shamballa, but an intermediary called a Nirmanakaya in the East. These intermediaries work with stepping down energies between kingdoms.
When Christ faced the Dweller he bypassed the intermediary and linked directly with the Lord of the World. This direct link is one reason the molecule had more power after the crucifixion than it did beforehand. The day of Pentecost was a symbol of the direct link between heaven and earth.
Question: How would this link eventually end all sin and guide mankind to relative perfection?
Sin is merely error and there will always be error of some kind in the worlds of form, but every error that we have will eventually be dispelled by light and the application of that which is revealed. When this happens, a higher level of error must be corrected and mastered.
Sin among humanity is corrected when light is manifest and a link with the Will of God is established to enable the disciple to stand in the light.
A link with Shamballa caused an increase of light pouring into the minds of humanity and as we stand firmly in that light error is revealed and corrected.
