Perfection Revisited

Perfection Revisited

A reader asks: “How do we become perfect before God? If God Itself is not perfect; but is instead that which is becoming, is there then no perfection before God? Ahhhh, but I say there is:

“For we know in part, but when perfection comes, the imperfect disappears.” 1 Cor 13:9

JJ: We eternally are in a state of becoming because there is no ultimate perfection. Such a concept is illusion. The Masters use the term “relative perfection” because any concept of perfection is relative to the fulfillment of some objective.

The scriptures agree with this and in relation to Jesus or Deity never uses the word perfection as it is meant in English today.

A reason that people accept Jesus as God is because they see him as being perfect. Actually, there are more scriptures that talk about the perfection of the saints than that of Jesus. There are two referring to perfection in relation to him.

In the first Jesus said: “Behold, I cast out devils, and I do cures today, and to morrow, and the third day I shall be perfected.” Luke 13:32

“Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered; And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him.” Heb 5:8-9

Before we go on and discuss perfection it is important that we understand the word as it is used in the Bible. There are three basic Greek words that are translated as “perfect” or “perfection” in the King James Version. The first and most popular is TELEIOO and the corresponding TELEIOS. This word was used in the reader’s scripture and does not really mean perfection as we think of the word today but more literally means “to finish, accomplish, or complete.”

The second word is KATARTIZO. This word means to complete or finish, but in a different sense. TELEIOO has the implication of finishing a new work or effort one has taken on whereas KATARTIZO implies a restoration to something as it was in the past. Both words imply wholeness, but the first through a new task, the second through a restoration.

The third word is AKRIBELA and derivatives thereof. This is the closest Greek word to our modern word “perfect”. It means: “to do a thing precisely and exactly correct.” Paul used this word in reference to the way the Jews taught the law: “I am verily a man which am a Jew, born in Tarsus, a city in Cilicia, yet brought up in this city at the feet of Gamaliel, and taught according to the PERFECT (exact) manner of the law of the fathers, and was zealous toward God, as YE ALL ARE this day.” Acts 22:3

When the Bible believing people of today talk about Jesus being perfect they usually use the word in the same sense that AKRIBELA was used. That is they think that Jesus obeyed all the laws “exactly” . They think of his perfection in the sense that he never made one mistake, that he never broke one commandment and exactly obeyed every injunction from the Bible. He was beyond reproach.

Actually, AKRIBELA was never used in the Bible in association with Jesus. The ones who were seeking for perfection, exactness, or AKRIBELA were the ones he continually called “hypocrites”. The Pharisees, Saducees, the Doctors of the Law, Scribes, in other words, the basic religious people of the day were continually accusing Jesus of not being AKRIBELA or perfect enough in obeying the law.

The scripture says: “THE LAW MADE NOTHING PERFECT, but the bringing in of a better hope (Christ) did; by which we draw nigh unto God.” Heb 7:19

The word for perfect here is TELEIOO and is the one used in connection with the perfection of Jesus and has nothing to do with obeying the law thus the law cannot create TELEIOO, or the perfection of Christ.

Orthodox Christians say that Jesus was perfect because he obeyed all the laws but the Bible says “The law made NOTHING perfect”?

Why do people worship Jesus and revere him as God because he exactly obeyed every law and scriptural injunction when the Bible says: “that NO MAN is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, the just shall live by faith. And the law is NOT of faith: but, the man that doeth them shall live in them. Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree.” Gal 3:11-13

Here Paul boldly states that Jesus was not perfect (or AKRIBELA) because he broke the law by his very death. The Old Testament which Paul quoted stated that anyone who was hung on a tree (or cross) was “accursed of God”. (See Deut 21:23) Therefore Paul explains that if righteousness comes by the law then Jesus was cursed because he was crucified on a cross made from a tree.

Why do you suppose it was in the plan of God that Jesus violated the law of perfection (AKRIBELA) to the extent that he was to be “accursed of God” by his very death. After all, he permitted it to happen. Was it so we would look forward to something else besides a black and white interpretation for our salvation? If this is so, why do we put Jesus on a pedestal by saying he never broke a law? Why do we think of him as AKRIBELA (perfect) when the scriptures do not say this?

One of the main reasons that Jesus was rejected by the Jews is because he was not perfect or exacting enough for them in keeping the laws of God given through Moses. He did not have the black and white attitude of the typical pious person. He realized that there is a time and season for “every purpose under heaven” Eccl 3:1 He knew that no carnal law could be written that was correct in every circumstance and taught that on the principle of love “hang ALL THE LAW and the prophets.” Matt 22:37-40

Paul reinforced this and said: “For he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law.” Rom 13:8 He also taught us not to be concerned with “the letter (of the law), but the Spirit: for the letter killeth, but the Spirit giveth life.” Rom 3:6

In other words, if one follows the law of love, or the spirit, he may wind up breaking the letter of the law and the prophets. Almost everyone, for instance, would be forced to break the letter of the law if he or she lived under a ruthless dictatorship. If authorities came looking for one’s child to execute him what parent would not lie to some degree to save the child from unjust suffering? In this case a lie breaks the letter of the law, but fulfills the law of love. Exceptions as this can be found for every commandment as was well illustrated by Solomon when he said there was a time for every purpose under heaven.

It should be a great relief to us that Jesus was not perfect (AKRIBELA) in the keeping of the carnal law and that his perfection was in the fact that he was able to do the job expected of him by the Father. This is especially so because of a commandment men and women everywhere are given: “Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.” Matt 5:48

Jesus was intelligent enough to not give his disciples a commandment that they could not obey, or that he himself did not adhere to. Most people see this perfection of the Father as something entirely beyond our grasp, but Jesus was talking about something that is possible for both him and us. The word perfect here comes from TELEIOS, an adjective form of TELEIOO. We find that this scripture is right in the middle of the sermon on the mount and that it makes a lot of sense when we read it in its context with a more enlightened translation:

“Finish therefore what is expected of you, even as your Father which is in heaven accomplishes that which is expected of him.” This is a commandment we can live with and appreciate and is much more applicable than an injunction to be flawless as is the One God who holds the universe together and created all the millions of galaxies. That is like telling a worm to be like a man. That is impossible, but the worm does his job assigned to him by nature just as do the higher animals. In this way all living things are perfect as the Father is perfect if they follow the harmony of nature.

A reader says: “By the way, the more you give the “devil” credit (even for the bad stuff) the more “power” you give him.”

JJ: The principle you are talking about here is that “energy follows thought.” There is much more depth to this law than even seasoned students understand.

If we put our attention on the negative then energy will follow that thought and manifest “devils” in your life.

Does this mean that we are to suppress negativity and pretend it does not exist? No, this may produce even worse results.

The key is to keep ourselves grounded in the real world by mentally acknowledging the reality of evil, negativity, the Dark Brothers etc, yet at the same time focusing thought on the desired energy and outcome. You will thus keep the realization that there is evil out there that needs to be dealt with but at the same time not feed it any energy because your directed thought is on the positive.

It’s a little like driving a car along side a river bank. It is important that you realize the river is there so you do not drive into it and destroy yourself, but at the same time you have no fear because your mind is focused on the positive goal of staying on the road and on coarse. You therefore do not give any energy to the thought of driving in the river, but only on your next desirable destination.

With the correct attention on thought and energy you thus live in the world of duality, but master duality.

The Dark Brothers connection with us is a little like that of a Mafia boss. The average guy does not know who he is and the Mafia Boss could care less about the average guy.

The Mafia guy does have an effect on the average guy, however, for his organization is selling drugs to kids and his abuse of the system causes the average guy to pay more taxes to keep everything under control.

On the other hand, if some average person steps forward and does something that interferes with mob business then he will have their attention and will have a fight on his hands. In this case mere positive thinking will not create any immediate solution any more than a person stepping into the ring with Mike Tyson can make Mike turn into a cream puff by sending him good vibes. When in the ring with an opponent even the man of peace must fight with all means necessary or suffer defeat by default.

Riding With God

Riding With God

After reading a discussion on the Molecular Relationship a reader asks: “Did I miss something? Is the group issuing stock or are we starting a church?”

JJ: We have enough churches to go around. If members want to attend a church there are plenty of them available, but we are not starting one.

There are three applications of the Molecular Relationship in the archives and to get a full idea it would be best to read that material which is composed of an entire book.

Three different organizations are presented as possibilities for the world.

The first is a spiritual organization that will link humanity with the Christ and his Hierarchy of Masters who is in turn linked with Shamballa who is in turn linked with the Solar Logos and on up from there.

Now aside from the purely spiritual aspects of this relationship, the manner of the organization is very practical and has applications that can help humanity in areas not generally considered spiritual. Two of these areas are business and politics. Actually from a higher point of view all areas of human living can be seen as spiritual, but that is another topic.

So the two possible extensions of the harmony of the order can have tremendous application in business and politics and thus a practical application of molecular principles is introduced in the chapters on the Molecular Business and Molecular Politics.

The Twelve Principles of Synthesis are not written as any foundation principles for our particular group, but are presented as a synthesis or the best common beliefs of metaphysical and New Age people. The trouble with these various groups is that they have no common bond or banner under which they can unite for any purpose. The Twelve Principles of Synthesis is unique in that it states twelve principles that almost all seekers accept and are capable of endorsing. These principles do not belong to us or any group but it is hoped that they will be picked up by many New Age, metaphysical as well as churches as a standard that can unite people of goodwill throughout the planet.

This of course will not happen overnight, but it is something that can materialize and eventually produce much good in the world.

One thing that all seekers must learn as we move on into the new age is that there are many transformations that will take some time. A mistake that many make is to fall for predictions of great change in a short period of time and this rarely happens. Instead we must look forward to the future even beyond our own lifetimes to hundreds of years ahead and more. Only by making long range planning can we lay a sure foundation for lasting peace on earth goodwill to humankind.

A reader brings up a point that needs addressed.

“This sentence really caught my attention: ‘An extremely high degree of perfection has to be reached to remain in an unchangeable state for that period of time.’ That seems like a boring, stagnant or static state of being.. that has so often been discussed, and lasts for billions of years… and is because of the high state of perfection… like my thought of God… that is unchanging because of the high degree of perfection… JJ Would you call this then a ‘state of being’ as opposed to a state of becoming due to its level of perfection, and is the consciousness then bored in that state for so long???”

JJ: There is a principle here that I have hinted at in the past but probably should have more elaboration and that is this. Everything in the universe that is in a state of progression or Becoming will eventually reach a state of relative perfection where additional progression become virtually impossible. When this point is reached any further progress can only be obtained through the Molecular Relationship which takes the lower consciousness to a higher level where there awaits new challenges.

Let us take the windows operating system for example. As I understand it (being a Mac man myself) it is built upon the foundation of DOS and has advanced from Windows 3 to 95 to 98 and then to 2000. How many more improvements can Bill Gates make on the current foundation before he reaches a point where improvements become almost impossible? Mark my words, the day will come when Gates must move to some new foundation structure or die with Windows 2050 or some such number.

Our better bicycles, for instance, are made about as close to maximum efficiency as possible. As manufacturers approach relative perfection others follow. We will never create the perfect bicycle, but we will eventually get so close to perfection that it would be a waste of time to attempt any more improvement.

An eternity ago the attention of God was in what we now call the subatomic universe and there the proton and other particles were perfected. This happened in an instant by our measure of time but by the measure that was used then the process took billions of years. The proton was thus fine tuned again and again until further perfection became impossible so God multiplied them to an unlimited number and their course was put on automatic pilot.

Now would the life of God that is reflected in the proton be bored to death if it just remained in this relative perfection for trillions of years with only infinitesimal change? Yes, it certainly would and that is where the Molecular Relationship comes in. Protons and other subatomic particles united to form something greater than themselves – called atoms. The sub atomic lives thus transferred their consciousness and awareness of time to a higher level and continued their progression through the atomic world. When the atomic life then reached a degree of perfection these units in turn joined and created molecules and thus a higher order was made available for further progression. The attention of God then moved from the lower to the higher until it has now settled upon the human kingdoms in all the worlds within this universe. The mind of God is thus now in the process of entertaining Itself through us, so the better show we put on for God the richer will be the experience of the whole.

All the kingdoms above human such as solar systems, galaxies and groups of galaxies owe their existence to the interplay of energies that manifest in the human kingdoms and below.

Now when I mention the human kingdom I also include the Masters and higher lives who have passed through humanity at one time or another as well as lower lives approaching human. And I am speaking of this physical universe. When we go higher than physical the prime attention of God may be on a higher kingdom that will manifest in the future in this physical reality.

Thus in answer to the comment the proton itself will not change and become something other than a proton in this eternity, but it will continue to “Become” through the “Principle of Identification” with higher lives.

The goal of the atoms and cells of your body are to link with your consciousness to the extent that they become one with you or become you. Then as you Become they also Become in ways never dreamed of before by these little lives.

Humanity will do the same thing. When we reach a relative perfection there will come a time that it will seem as if there are no new worlds to conquer because we have done it all and conquered all. We will not cease to Become, however because at that point we will be molecular and identify with lives greater than ourselves and these higher lives will take us on a thrill ride that we cannot imagine in our present state.

The Illusion of Perfection, Part 2

Nov 30, 1998

The Illusion of Perfection, Part 2

I will make several comments about Gabrielle’s comments on my comments.

The main thing I am trying to get across here is that perfection is an illusion. What perfection is, is different for each person. To the Jews who crucified Jesus, he was one of the most imperfect beings who ever lived. To the born again Christian he is completely flawless.

The interesting thing is that the early Apostles realized this. NO WHERE in the Bible do they call Jesus perfect (AKRIBELA). In fact they do not even call God perfect.

Gabrielle quotes John 17:23 “I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made perfect in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.”

Again we have a mistranslation that is used by all the current advocates of the orthodox view of Jesus.

The word perfect here is again translated from the Greek TELEIOO which means “complete,” “completion of a job” or “Finished.”

Thus the correct translation is: “I in them, and thou in me, that they may be made COMPLETE (or Whole) in one; and that the world may know that thou hast sent me, and hast loved them, as thou hast loved me.”

The word equivalent to the modern word perfect is AKRIBELA and if you check your Bible Concordance you will not find this word ever used in connection with God or Jesus.

The early teachers understood the Hebrew and were familiar with the Revelation of Moses and the wise knew that Jehovah, Jesus, Peter, you and me are all in a state of becoming and that if a being could become perfect then his purpose for existence would cease.

Here are some interesting questions to ask someone who believes in perfection:

IS GOD PERFECT

QUESTION: Is God perfect?

ANSWER: Yes.

QUESTION: Then you believe that God does not make mistakes?

ANSWER: Yes. He doesn’t make mistakes.

QUESTION: Did God create you?

ANSWER: Yes.

QUESTION: Are you perfect?

ANSWER: No.

QUESTION: But if God created imperfect beings such as ourselves then He would have to be imperfect, wouldn’t he?

ANSWER: No, God is perfect and created us perfect, but He has given us our freewill and, using this freewill, we do imperfect things.

QUESTION: But who created your freewill? ANSWER: God.

QUESTION: So we come back to the same conclusion. God created you in an imperfect state. How can you believe that God is perfect? ANSWER: You are twisting things. (This is the answer a person gives when he doesn’t want to face truth or admit that he has been wrong.)

QUESTION: Did God create the earth, the minerals, plants and animals?

ANSWER: Yes.

QUESTION: I notice that animals are also not perfect. Some get sick; others are dangerous and bite people. Did God make them imperfect?

ANSWER: I’m not sure.

QUESTION: How about plants and minerals? Very few crystals are nearly perfect and many plants are misshapen and off color. If God is perfect and He created everything, then why is everything not perfect?

ANSWER: It’s because of man’s original sin that all this imperfection came into the world.

QUESTION: But, apparently imperfection was already in the world, for the imperfect serpent was here when man arrived. Was man responsible for the creation of the imperfect serpent?

ANSWER: No.

QUESTION: So then one must conclude that man is not responsible for all the imperfection in the world. Is this right?

ANSWER: I guess.

QUESTION: So who is responsible for imperfect creations?

ANSWER: The Devil. God makes things perfect, but man and the Devil corrupt them.

QUESTION: So when were you created perfect by God?

ANSWER: When I was born.

QUESTION: Are you saying then that all babies are perfect when they are born?

ANSWER: Well, I know that some are born without limbs and with defects. I must have been perfect when I was conceived.

QUESTION: But you were not created when you were conceived, and we know that nature aborts many conceptions, so even they are not perfect. If God is perfect and we are created at birth by Him, then why are not all babies perfect?

ANSWER: You are twisting things.

QUESTION: Do you really believe that God is perfect or is that just what you have been programmed to think?

ANSWER: You’ve got me confused. What’s your answer?

The answer: perfection in the world of form is an illusion and is in the mind of the beholder. The closest we come to it is called “relative perfection.”

Gabrielle also quotes the first few verses of John. These verses are very much misunderstood by the religious world.

The Bible says yes. It tells us that there is a hierarchy in all things, even the Gods: “If thou seest the oppression of the poor, and violent perverting of judgment and justice in a province, marvel not at the matter: for he that is higher than the highest regardeth (many scholars think that this refers to Jehovah) AND THERE BE HIGHER THAN THEY.” Eccl 5:8

The Duay version renders it this way: “If thou see the oppressions of the poor, and violent judgments, and justice perverted, in the province, wonder not at this matter: for he that is high hath another higher, and there are others still higher than these.”

The Bible does tell about a God who created all the heavens who must be a lot higher than the God of the earth. It also tells us that he made the worlds through the power of the Son of God. (Hebrews 1:1-3) It makes it sound as if it was Jesus, the man from Nazareth, who created the trillions of worlds out there and is perhaps the one God that is over all things.

This belief is further reinforced because Jesus is identified as the Word in the first chapter of John by the Christian world: “In the beginning was the word, and the word was with God, and the word WAS GOD. The same was in the beginning with God. All things were made by him; and without him was not anything made that was made. In him was life; and the life was the light of men.” John 1:1-4.

This sounds confusing. God is identified with men, the God of this earth, the creator of all the heavens, and now as the man Jesus who created all things. What really did create all things? A more correct translation will help here. The Concordant Version does the best job in rendering the original Greek in John 1:1-4: “In the beginning was the word, and the word was toward God, and God was the word. This is in the beginning toward God. All came into being through IT (not Him), and apart from IT not even one thing came into being which has come into being. In IT was life, and the life was the light of men.”

There is a major revelation here in this more correct translation. The Word is an “it” and not a “he”. The original translators of the King James wanted to glorify Jesus to the position of the creator of all the heavens so they changed “it” to “he”. Some of the modern translations give an honest rendering but most show their bias by keeping the “he”.

The original word “it” is very significant. This indicates that “it” is an energy (words are vibration and vibration is energy) and not a single person. The same is true with the Son of God. It is not just the man Jesus, but all who reach the Christ consciousness can be Sons of God. Jesus was a representative on this earth (not the originator) for the power of the Word of God, or the Son energy.

There is a hierarchy of beings of a diverse magnitude of consciousness who are tuned into the Father, Son, and Holy Ghost energies. There are billions of entities in each category throughout the universe and even though Jesus is the greatest teacher of humanity many others on other worlds are greater than he.

After a thousand years of relative peace he who occupies the position of Christ will leave this system and become a student on another one. Thus “the first shall be last and the last first.”

Jesus himself is an individual entity like you and me, but the Christ principle is a point of interplay between Spirit and matter that our consciousness must attune to discover the mysteries of God.

The Illusion of Perfection, Part One

Nov 29, 1998

The Illusion of Perfection, Part One

Alice writes: “The crucifixion was the (historical) event and the resurrection was the healing.” Even though this was not the answer we were looking for it is interesting how the Dark Forces always seem to copy, in some degree, that which the Brothers of Light do or teach. Christ did receive a deadly wound and was healed and the beast is doing the same thing in its own way.

Alice wants me to comment on Gabrielle’s questions so here goes. Gabrielle first quotes me:

JJ Dewey: “Jesus did not even want the take the chance of looking too “good” to his followers, but now the mindless followers think it is blasphemy to call Him anything less than the goodest, most perfect creator God of the universe.”

Gabrielle’s Remarks: “For me it would be blasphemy to consider Christ anything less than the goodest most perfect creator God of the universe and to love Him and thank Him as such. The Gnostics might disagree with this, I understand, however I cannot see Father God despising such a love – a love for love (in Christ).”

“The mindless followers had heart. Jesus asked them to go out and love one another. Mind is good too, but His doctrine did not say firstly: go out and be mindful about one another. We have also been warned that it is dangerous to call a good an evil.”

JJ

My remarks may offend some, but I stand by them. If you talk to any standard religious person and say anything else about Jesus but that he is “the goodest, most perfect creator God of the universe.” they will think you are speaking blasphemy.

Actually it is far from blasphemy for nowhere in the Bible is Jesus called perfect. All mentions of his perfection are a mistranslation. One of the main scriptures speaking of the perfection of Jesus is as follows: “Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered; And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him.” Heb 5:8-9

Before we go on and discuss perfection it is important that we understand the word as it is used in the Bible. There are three basic Greek words that are translated as “perfect” or “perfection” in the King James Version. The first and most popular is TELEIOO and the corresponding TELEIOS. This word does not really mean perfection as we think of the word today, but more literally means “to finish, accomplish, or complete.”

The second word is KATARTIZO. This word means to complete or finish, but in a different sense. TELEIOO has the implication of finishing a new work or effort one has taken on whereas KATARTIZO implies a restoration to something as it was in the past. Both words imply wholeness, but the first through a new task, the second through a restoration.

The third word is AKRIBELA and derivatives thereof. This is the closest Greek word to our modern word “perfect”. It means: “to do a thing precisely and exactly correct.” Paul used this word in reference to the way the Jews taught the law: “I am verily a man which am a Jew, born in Tarsus, a city in Cilicia, yet brought up in this city at the feet of Gamaliel, and taught according to the PERFECT (exact) manner of the law of the fathers, and was zealous toward God, as YE ALL ARE this day.” Acts 22:3

When the Bible believing people of today talk about Jesus being perfect they usually use the word in the same sense that AKRIBELA was used. That is they think that Jesus obeyed all the laws “exactly”. They think of his perfection in the sense that he never made one mistake, that he never broke one commandment and exactly obeyed every injunction from the Bible. He was beyond reproach.

Actually, AKRIBELA was never used in the Bible in association with Jesus. The ones who were seeking for perfection, exactness, or AKRIBELA were the ones he continually called “hypocrites”. The Pharisees, Sadducees, the Doctors of the Law, Scribes, in other words, the basic religious people of the day were continually accusing Jesus of not being AKRIBELA or perfect enough in obeying the law.

The scripture says: “THE LAW MADE NOTHING PERFECT, but the bringing in of a better hope (Christ) did; by which we draw nigh unto God.” Heb 7:19 The word for perfect here is TELEIOO and is the one used in connection with the perfection of Jesus and has nothing to do with obeying the law thus the law cannot create TELEIOO, or the perfection of Christ.

Orthodox Christians think that Jesus was perfect because he obeyed all the laws, but the Bible says “The law made NOTHING perfect”. Why do people worship Jesus and revere him as God because he exactly obeyed every law and scriptural injunction when the Bible says: “that NO MAN is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, the just shall live by faith. And the law is NOT of faith: but, the man that doeth them shall live in them. Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree.” Gal 3:11-13

Here Paul boldly states that Jesus was not perfect (or AKRIBELA) because he broke the law by his very death. The Old Testament which Paul quoted stated that anyone who was hung on a tree (or cross) was “accursed of God”. (See Deut 21:23) Therefore Paul explains that if righteousness comes by the law then Jesus was cursed because he was crucified on a cross made from a tree.

Why do you suppose it was in the plan of God that Jesus violated the law of perfection (AKRIBELA) to the extent that he was to be “accursed of God” by his very death? After all he permitted it to happen. Was it so we would look forward to something else besides a black and white interpretation for our salvation? If this is so, why do we put Jesus on a pedestal by saying he has never broken a law? Why do we think of him as AKRIBELA (perfect) when he was not?

One of the main reasons that Jesus was rejected by the Jews is because he was not perfect or exacting enough for them in keeping the laws of God given through Moses. He did not have the black and white attitude of the typical pious person. He realized that there is a time and season for “every purpose under heaven” Eccl 3:1 He knew that no carnal law could be written that was correct in every circumstance and taught that on the principle of love “hang ALLTHE LAW and the prophets.” Matt 22:37-40

Paul reinforced this and said: “For he that loveth another hath fulfilled the law.” Rom 13:8 He also taught us not to be concerned with “the letter (of the law), but the Spirit: for the letter killeth, but the Spirit giveth life.” Rom 3:6

Now we will quote the whole scripture about the perfection of Jesus again so the reader can see the correct context: “Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered; and BEING MADE PERFECT (he finished this task of learning obedience), he became the author of eternal salvation to all that obey him.” Heb 5:8-9

Amazingly, this scripture by itself clearly tells us that Jesus was not perfect throughout his entire life -as the religious world defines perfection. It says: “yet LEARNED he obedience by the things which he suffered.” This tells us that there was a time in his life when he had not yet learned obedience and that he suffered for it. This reference tells us that Jesus came closer to perfection (as we use the word today) after he suffered. If he was perfect (AKRIBELA) from start to finish then why did he have to suffer to learn obedience?

Many Christians today have the idea that Jesus was so perfect that he never made one mistake. They further believe he did not have to learn obedience, but it was automatic with him because he was God. Why should God have to learn obedience from God? They think that he completely and literally obeyed every injunction in the Bible, and that he was a rigid law keeper. As we can see, this has no basis in the Bible. The Bible does, however, show us that he was the most perfect expression of love that ever walked the earth.

Another common misconception concerns Jesus being The Creator. The creative force of the Universe is the Son or Christ principle. The Christ is a position occupied by one individual on each inhabited planet. There are millions of Christ positions throughout the Universe, but only one principle that is manifest everywhere and creates all there is. In addition all of us who become one with the inner Christ become one in Spirit with the inhabitants of the Kingdom of God. We become part of the body of Christ.

The Principle of Correction

Principle Seventeen:  Correction

Correction is not usually thought of as a principle, but indeed it is and an important one at that. Without it relative perfection could never be achieved. No great advancement, no thing of beauty and nothing with complexity has ever been achieved without it.

The reason absolute perfection is an illusion is because to believe in such a thing one must negate the eternal principle of correction. Because correction is always taking place absolute perfection cannot be.

To see how needed this principle is visualize stopping your car on a stretch of straight road and then perfectly pointing it straight ahead in an attempt to drive it for one mile without correcting it through steering. After pointing it straight ahead you start the engine and hit the gas pedal. We all know what will happen. In less than one block the car will veer to the left or the right and you will have to grab hold of the wheel and correct the direction. In fact, by the time you arrive at the first mile you will have made hundreds of corrections with the steering wheel. It is obvious to anyone who has driven a car that it is impossible to drive a car anywhere without using the principle of correction.

Now visualize an artist painting a masterpiece. Is each stroke and color applied done with perfection? No. Again he must make many corrective strokes and blending of colors to achieve the final appearance desired.

How about the creation of this world? Was it accomplished in one great attempt? No. It began as a ball of fire and condensed. Later came the oceans and an atmosphere accompanied by elementary life. The life evolved into more complex forms until the human race appeared. Millions of corrections and changes have occurred for this planet to arrive at the beauty it now possesses and yet it is still far from perfect. Millions of additional corrections must be accomplished before this planet achieves the measure of its creation.

One of the most common mistakes made by teachers of the past is they present their ideas or revelations as if they were absolute perfection from the mind of God. The problem is that even if the concepts were inspired and sound, the application of them will require much correction before they become workable. Instead of making corrections the followers try with exactness to implement the plans. This always fails and when it does the original good ideas are often abandoned and replaced with inferior ones — usually after the initiate dies.

The teacher of this age must present the basic principles behind his ideas with the thought that some trial and error, or correction, will be required before they mature and reach their maximum usability.

This principle is expanded upon in Book four of the Immortal series, Eternal Words.

Relative Perfection

This entry is part 14 of 98 in the series Principles

 

Principle 16:  Relative Perfection

There are two scriptures referring to perfection in relation to Jesus:

In the first Jesus said, “Behold, I cast out devils, and I do cures today, and tomorrow, and the third day I shall be perfected.” (Luke 13:32)  The second scripture states, “Though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered; And being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him.” (Hebrews 5:8-9)

Before we go on and discuss perfection it is important that we understand the word as it is used in the Bible. There are three basic Greek words that are translated as perfect or perfection in the King James Version. The first and most popular is TELEIOO and the corresponding TELEIOS. This word does not really mean perfection as we think of the word today but more literally means to finish, accomplish, or complete. The second word is KATARTIZO. This word means to complete or finish, but in a different sense. TELEIOO has the implication of finishing a new work or effort one has taken on whereas KATARTIZO implies a restoration to something as it was in the past. Both words imply wholeness, but the first through a new task, the second through a restoration.

The third word is AKRIBELA and derivatives thereof. This is the closest Greek word to our modern word perfect. It means to do a thing precisely and exactly correct. Paul used this word in reference to the way the Jews taught the law: “I am verily a man which am a Jew, born in Tarsus, a city in Cilicia, yet brought up in this city at the feet of Gamaliel, and taught according to the PERFECT (exact) manner of the law of the fathers, and was zealous toward God, as YE ALL ARE this day.” (Acts 22:3)

When the Bible believing people of today talk about Jesus being perfect they usually use the word in the same sense that AKRIBELA was used. That is, they think that Jesus obeyed all the laws “exactly.” They think of his perfection in the sense that he never made one mistake, that he never broke one commandment and exactly obeyed every injunction from the Bible. He was beyond reproach.

Actually, AKRIBELA was never used in the Bible in association with Jesus. The ones who were seeking for perfection, exactness, or AKRIBELA were the ones he continually called “hypocrites.” The Pharisees, Sadducees, the Doctors of the Law, Scribes, in other words, the basic religious people of the day were continually accusing Jesus of not being AKRIBELA or perfect enough in obeying the law.

The scripture says, “THE LAW MADE NOTHING PERFECT, but the bringing in of a better hope (Christ) did; by which we draw nigh unto God.” (Hebrews 7:19)

The word for perfect here is TELEIOO and is the one used in connection with the perfection of Jesus and has nothing to do with obeying the law; thus the law cannot create TELEIOO, or the perfection of Christ.

Why do orthodox Christians say that Jesus was perfect because he obeyed all the laws when the Bible says “The law made NOTHING perfect”?

Why do people worship Jesus and revere him as God because he exactly obeyed every law and scriptural injunction when the Bible says, “That NO MAN is justified by the law in the sight of God, it is evident: for, the just shall live by faith. And the law is NOT of faith: but, the man that doeth them shall live in them. Christ hath redeemed us from the curse of the law, being made a curse for us: for it is written, Cursed is every one that hangeth on a tree.” (Galatians 3:11-13)

Here Paul boldly states that Jesus was not perfect (or AKRIBELA) because he broke the law by his very death. The Old Testament which Paul quoted stated that anyone who was hung on a tree (or cross) was “accursed of God.” (See Deuteronomy 21:23.)  Therefore Paul explains that if righteousness comes by the law then Jesus was cursed because he was crucified on a cross made from a tree.

Why do you suppose it was in the plan of God that Jesus violated the law of perfection (AKRIBELA) to the extent that he was to be “accursed of God” by his very death. After all, he permitted it to happen. Was it so we would look forward to something else besides a black and white interpretation for our salvation? If this is so, why do we put Jesus on a pedestal by saying he never broke a law? Why do we think of him as AKRIBELA (perfect) when he was not?

One of the main reasons that Jesus was rejected by the Jews is because he was not perfect or exacting enough for them in keeping the laws of God given through Moses. He did not have the black and white attitude of the typical pious person. He realized that there is a time and season for “every purpose under heaven.” (Ecclesiastes 3:1)

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

In this scripture “perfect” is mistranslated from TELEIOO which means “Complete, finish and puts forth the idea of finishing a job or goal that you have.” Now let’s translate this verse correctly as Jesus meant it, “Therefore finish (or complete) the work you are given to do even as your Father in Heaven completes His.” Isn’t the true rendering the more practical advice?

Again I will repeat: You have to read from a mistranslated Bible to teach the perfection of God or man. The doctrine of perfection, as the religious world understands it, is just not in there. If you do not believe me go to any standard Christian bookstore and buy a concordance (Strongs Concordance is the best.) and look these words up. This knowledge is available to all the Bible believers.

Since we are basically talking about the perfection of God let us first define perfection as it is usually used in relation to religious discussions.

Perfection:  “A state of being, achievement or attainment which cannot be improved upon and from which no further progress or improvement is possible.”

When this idea is applied to worshipped beings such as Jesus or Jehovah it is done with the idea that they can never make a mistake. Every word, action, movement and creation they make is flawless.

Basically these poor gods have nowhere do go because they have it all. They have no goals because to move toward a goal of any kind would take them away from the perfection they are now experiencing. They have nothing to learn because they are perfect in their learning. There is actually nothing even left for them to create because their creation is perfect since they are perfect.

Such a delusion about any living entity in the universe is a great example of the deception that “the Beast” has fostered upon mankind. And the interesting thing about this idea is that it is found nowhere in the Bible, but the Beast creates the illusion for the masses that it is taught in the scriptures so control becomes that much easier.

Since the Beast uses even good things like the Bible as a tool of control it must make us think his most cherished teachings are in there whether they are or not.

Ultimate Perfection is an illusion and actually undesirable. If we were to live in a state where there could not exist a goal to progress even higher then there would be no joy in living. The closest we get to perfection is what we call “Relative Perfection.” With relative perfection one can reach a state where the entity has a skill down pat so he becomes a reliable performer or he has achieved a particular goal to his satisfaction, but soon he finds another skill to master and another goal to achieve.

First let me say that to put Jesus, Buddha and other religious icons in their right place and perspective is not blasphemous as truth is the highest form of religion and is never blasphemous. On the contrary, to overstate their importance as the beast did with Jesus in the Nicene Creed IS blasphemous and needs correction in the religious world. To put Jesus in his right place in the universe is a good thing, just as it would have been a good thing to put the emperor of Rome in his right place. Only by putting all things in their right place can the truth be seen. If one puts Jesus on an even higher pedestal than He belongs then all perception of Him and his words will be seen through a fog and high illusion will be the result.

Where there is not an agreed upon measure for ultimate perfection what is called perfection is in the eye of the beholder.

On the other hand there are many absolute perfections that can be agreed upon. For instance an absolutely perfect circle has all points on its circumference exactly the same distance from the center. But in physical reality there is no such thing as a perfect circle. There is not a planet in the universe with an exactly circular orbit. No one has ever created a perfect circle. What is the best we can hope for? The closest we can come to absolute perfection is relative perfection. In other words, we can create relatively perfect circles.

Once relative perfection is reached in the world of form the intelligence behind its creation recognizes it and begins to duplicate this perfection. For instance, a proton is relatively perfect. These particles are not absolutely perfect because each proton has a very slight differentiation from all others. Because the intelligence behind the proton recognizes the relative perfection of this unit it has created these relatively perfect particles by the same principles everywhere in the universe.

Humanity does the same thing as God does. When we reach relative perfection in creation others copy this perfection to the best of their ability. Our better bicycles, for instance, are made about as close to maximum efficiency as possible. As manufacturers approach relative perfection others follow. We will never create the perfect bicycle, but we will eventually get so close to perfection that it would be a waste of time to attempt any more improvement.

This is what supreme intelligence has done with the proton. Perfection is so close that any more attention on improvement is not worth the effort. God’s efforts are now much better spent working on humans. We are far from relative perfection on the physical plane.

“Management is doing things right; leadership is doing the right things.”

Eternal Lives, Chapter 15

This entry is part 15 of 17 in the series Eternal Lives

Who Was Jesus?

The greatest mystery man of all time is, of course, Jesus himself. What is his history? There is not a lot of information in the scriptures about his past, but there is some.

One of the strongest hints of an ancient past is found in the gospel of John:
“And there are also many other things which Jesus did, the which, if they should be written every one, I suppose that even the world itself could not contain the books that should be written.” John 21:2

Now according to orthodox belief, the apostles only knew Jesus for three years and this was not enough association to even write a book. Each of the gospels that were written about him was only the length of a short story, not enough material for one book let alone books so numerous that they would fill the earth.

When did Jesus do all these thousands, perhaps millions of deeds so numerous that they would fill thousands of volumes??? There is no way that so many works could be done in a mere 33 years. Such a voluminous history would have to span many lifetimes.

Another hint of the Past of Jesus is given in this scripture: “And John saw and bore record of the fullness of my glory, and the fullness of John’s record is hereafter to be revealed. And he bore record saying: I saw his glory, that he was in the beginning, before the world was. (In other words before the “age” was or before the days of Adam.) Therefore, in the beginning the Word was, for he was the Word, EVEN THE MESSENGER OF’ SALVATION” D&C 93:6-8.

Thus we see that in the dawn of time here on the earth that Christ was one who was called the “messenger of Salvation.” It is quite obvious that he must have had many lives of service to become what he was when he appeared to the Jews and one or more was as a “messenger of salvation.”

The scripture continues: “And I, John, saw that he received not of the fullness at first, (In his first life), but received grace for grace; and he received not of the fullness at first, but continued from grace to grace, (life to life), until he received a fullness; And thus he was called the Son of God, because he received not of the fullness at first… I give you these sayings that you may understand and know how to worship, and know what you worship, (That is he, the Christ, is a man like unto ourselves, but with more experience), that ye may come unto the Father in my name, and in due time (after sufficient incarnations) receive of his fullness… He that keepeth his commandments receiveth truth and light, until he is glorified in truth and knoweth all things.” D&C 93:12-14,19,28.

The scriptures make it obvious that Jesus lived more than one short life of thirty-three years: “For we have not an high priest which cannot be touched with the feeling of our infirmities; but WAS IN ALL POINTS TEMPTED LIKE AS WE ARE yet without sin.” Heb 4:15. Before I accepted the doctrine of reincarnation I often wondered how Jesus could have been tempted in all points as I have been for I have often thought that I have been in many circumstances that he could not have been in. But if we consider reincarnation, we can see how this scripture is actually true, that during his long probation of lives he has been tempted in every way possible and came off victorious in his last life without sin.

This helps us understand another scripture: “For in that he himself hath suffered being tempted, he is able to succor them that are tempted.” Heb 2:18. Now we see that he is able to succor us because in his vast experience he has undergone every temptation imaginable. We see that “though he were a Son, yet learned he obedience by the things which he suffered; and being made perfect, he became the author of eternal salvation unto all them that obey him.” Heb 5;9-10

Now we can apply a larger perspective to the interpretation of this scripture. Christ learned obedience by the things which be suffered in past lives. His suffering in his life as the Christ took place after he was already perfected, but he learned obedience by the things which he suffered in past lives which prepared him for a life as the Son of God. We are told that after he learned obedience by suffering that he was “made perfect” and “became the author of eternal salvation”. What does this mean, and what is perfection?

Perfection seems to mean different things to different people, and from a human standpoint it could be defined as the highest ideal of any individual. But since the highest ideal of each individual is somewhat different, then perfection would be different for almost everyone. For instance Jesus was by no means perfect in the eyes of the learned Pharisees and Scribes. They thought the perfect Messiah would idolize their law and traditions as they themselves did. The Christian world in the days of Joseph Smith thought he was far from perfect for they thought a prophet should be very pious. Of course, he did not live up to this standard and even many converts were disappointed when they met him. Joseph once said that if Jesus himself were with them they would find many faults with him.

Thus we come to a question. If perfection by human standards is the highest ideal of an individual, is there any such thing as real perfection? After all, no matter how high a person’s ideal is, there is yet another higher throughout all eternity. There is no limit to a person’s will-to-good. Unfortunately when something higher than a person’s ideal is presented, the individual cannot recognize it unless he elevates his thoughts. If he does not do this the person will stand in absolute blindness when faced with the greater reality, a blindness so great that nothing from without can penetrate it.

Therefore, the Jews were completely ignorant to the fact that Jesus represented a greater reality. They thought he was less than perfection and presented a threat to their perfection; thus they sought to destroy him. Would this mean that there is a greater reality than Christ? Yes, and he admitted it for he said: “My Father is greater than I am.” John 14:28 Jesus was able to recognize one greater than himself, but the Jews could not and this was why they were condemned. They saw perfection as only their highest ideal and could not accept the fact that there was nothing higher and were called “the blind that lead the blind and both shall fall in the ditch”. The first step toward eternal progression is to remove this blindness and always be “opened” to the possibility that there may be somewhere out there a greater reality than we have ever before imagined. Many who read these words now will be amazed a few years down the road at all of the greater realities they will discover.

Taking the above logic into consideration we may safely conclude that perfection as it is understood by humanity is an illusion and does not really exist, for there is no ultimate in achievement. Even as far as Christ is concerned, he is just a junior achiever in relation to his Father, and his Father is a mere junior executive in comparison to the Gods above him for his Father’s main responsibility is this planet whereas other’s govern solar systems and galaxies and have a consciousness above anything that can be imagined even by Christ himself.

If this is so then what is meant by the scripture which tells us that he was “made perfect?” To understand this we must examine the Greek. The words “made perfect” are translated from the Greek word TELEIOO which really has little to do with perfection as we understand it. As a matter of fact there is no Greek or Hebrew equivalent for the English word perfection as it is applied to deity for they had enough common sense to realize that such a word was meaningless. The word TELEIOO is more appropriately translated as “finish, fulfill, or consummate” and in the text of this scripture it implies “To accomplish an assigned mission” Jesus himself used this word in a similar context when he said: “My meat is to do the will of him that sent me, and to finish (From the Greek TELEIOO) his work.” John 4:34. Paul also said: “Neither count I my life dear unto myself, so that I might finish (TELEIOO) my course with joy.” Acts 20:24.

Thus we see that after the Christ had finished his assigned task that he became the author of “eternal salvation”. These are another interesting pair of words for neither one of them mean what they seem. “Eternal” comes from the Greek AIONIOS which can mean one of three things: (1) Something which can last for an age or a long period of time. (2) Having an ageless quality or (3) At the end of an age. One has to look at the content to see how the word was intended to be used and the key is given in the word salvation which comes from the word SOTERIA which is more correctly rendered “deliverance” or “rescue”. An equivalent Hebrew word is used in Joel: “And I will shew wonders in the heavens and in the earth, blood and fire, and pillars of smoke. The sun shall be turned into darkness, and the moon into blood, before the great and terrible day of the Lord come. and it shall come to pass, that WHOSOEVER SHALL CALL ON THE NAME OF THE LORD SHALL BE DELIVERED (saved): for in mount Zion and in Jerusalem shall be deliverance, the Lord hath said, and in the remnant whom the Lord shall call.” Joel 2:30-32 Here we see that this word is used to indicate a deliverance at the end of the age rather than a spiritual atonement. We see that the righteous will be “saved” from the calamities which will come upon the world.

Taking this into consideration let us retranslate the scripture in question which reads: “And being made perfect, He became the author of eternal salvation unto all that obey him.” It could be more correctly rendered: “And completing the work which was expected of him he made possible our deliverance at the end of the age.” In other words the work of the Christ made possible and paved the way for our deliverance at this time thousands of years later. This deliverance could be multiform. It could be a deliverance from physical calamities, but could also imply a deliverance from our lower nature as the teachings of Christ finally sink into our consciousness at the end of the old and the beginning of the new age.

Kalispell Gathering 2006, Part 37

This entry is part 22 of 24 in the series Kalispell Gathering 2006

Audience: The one great life that is the youngest, in my head I think of this life as the big baby, because he is the biggest but is also the youngest. Didn’t He create molecules? When you say that we are in the seventh plane (universe of seven), are we the universe seventh edition and did that same big baby create them all?

JJ: Laughter. Okay, it would take a whole book to explain that. It might be a good idea to read the book again. There is really only one life and what the One Great Life did was reflected Himself, so if you put one mirror on one side of your self and another mirror on the other side of your self and looked, have you ever done that before? You will see the mirror reflect into endlessness. In the Bible when God said He created man, that He created man in His image. The word in the Hebrew actually means a reflection of himself, so this tells us that what God did in the beginning was reflect Himself and each of us is a reflection of God, we are just not a piece of God but the whole image of God is reflected in all of us so each one of us has the potential of the wholeness of God, not just a piece of Him.

Everything that God has is available within us, but each time a part of God goes to sleep and wakes up on a higher plane then He has to start from scratch. Everything is still in there and everything that we have ever learned is still intact. All we have learned from many lives in other universes and spheres is within us, but it is not all accessible because we are in a creation that we have never experienced before. What man is in the universe is where God is putting His creative energy. By man I mean man and woman. That is the trouble with man and woman, there is really no good substitute word that means both man and woman. Humanity is good but man is short and sweet. If I say man I mean male and female in this context.

Humanity is where God has His physical energies in this creative universe. There are 12 Creative Hierarchies in all the universes from the various spheres but in the physical universe that we are in man is where God has His creative attention and just like us we can only put our attention on so much at one time. God is the same way because we are in His image. Now if want to understand what God is like then we need to understand what we are like because we are made in God’s image.

We can only put our attention on so much at one time and in this universe He can only put His attention on so much at one time so His attention is on mainly focused on where his image is which is man. So we are the creative force in this universe and we are really just getting started with the creation. What happened in the lower universes within the atom is that His attention in the past had been there but when relative perfection was attained what happened was we then left it there like a computer program.

When a computer program is perfect, when we get the perfect Microsoft Word then no programmer has to come and fix it, it just works forever. It just works and no one has to create Microsoft Word again. It has reached relative perfection and there it is. When we as the smaller parts of ourselves were in the smaller universes, we reached relative perfection and then left that relative perfection there like a great computer program. All the atoms stay together and function perfectly because they are all computer programs that were perfected with the attention of God.

DNA and the human genome just did not materialize on it’s own. It got there through a lot of labor and work. Once it was perfected it was left there like a great computer program. As a matter of fact it is so complex, a famous atheist studied it and he was so impressed with the complexity that he was convinced that there was some intelligence involved because it could not have just fallen together. But you do not need to study that. You can just look at anything through a microscope and think how did that get there and how did that get put together and by what intelligence?

The intelligence was not just God sitting up on a chair and snapping His fingers. Bet’s suppose it was. Well, then, who created Him? No one had answer for that. The answer is that we have always been and the intelligence has always been an active intelligence creating things and once one thing is created we plug in the computer program and it runs on it’s own. Every hydrogen atom that makes up water is extremely complex.

We think a human cell is complex, a hydrogen atom is just as complex as a cell and DNA but it is running on a bunch of computer programs that is keeping everything together and running and then that little atom is joined together to make cells and they have little computer programs running and the attention of God no longer has to go on creating them. The wheel has already been invented in that area and does not have to be re-invented. So where is the creative mind of God at work?

It is at work now in the human atom and what is interesting is in the law of correspondences. Remember they said that the solar system corresponds to an atom, but so does a human being. And who was the first man? Adam, who sounds very much like atom, does it not? And this is not just a coincidence because we are very much like an atom. You say well we are not round like an atom, well yes we are but we do not see this. What we see is a nucleus of ourselves. Our physical body here corresponds to the nucleus and the energy field in an atom corresponds to the seven chakras. We have seven electron shells around us just like the atom has seven shells within it, the atom has seven chakras and we have seven chakras.

If you learn to see the aura you will see that you have an energy field around you is that is a little bit egg shaped. So you are actually a circular being. What we see is just the dense part of us. The proton weighs about 1839 times more than an electron, so in the hydrogen atom the particle in the center is 1839 times as dense as the particle circling around it. That is why we cannot see our outer electrons because the body is much more dense. Our body is much more dense that our aura field.

Our aura field is something that we can see and I have trained myself to see it and it actually circulates around us. If you can see it then you can actually see it circulating around you just like an atom with something circulating around it. We are not exactly like the atom; we correspond to what is below but with a difference. When we look below, we lots of organization, the DNA is so complex that it took all the computer experts in the world to put together programs to just map it. Mapping it was a great undertaking let alone understanding how it works. Extremely complex, detailed and perfect almost. We cannot think of anything more perfect. Then when we get to us, are we perfect? No, we have not even achieved relative perfection. Except for James over here, he is pretty darn close! Laughter.

JJ: All of us are working on our own perfection and most of us feel a thousand miles away from it. But, when we look at what we do here compared to larger lives, we see that, the planet earth itself is beautiful but is kind of rough. Then we look at Mars and the various planets and they are all different and they all have much that needs organized that could be done.

When we look farther and farther up we see random organization. We look at the stars and see they are randomly placed out there; there is some organization but not a lot. It is random unless you really study it a lot and then we find that there are, certain groups of stars that do group together in galaxies but it is a bit rough. So now we find out the larger we get the less everything is organized, and the smaller we get we find that everything is ingeniously organized – almost perfect organization, and we are right in the middle. God is putting His attention through us to organize the universe. Humanity is young in the universe at present. On the various planets the various beings have probably evolved to look somewhat different but they will all follow approximately the same program. Just like each hydrogen atom evolves about the same way on each planet and at the end of evolution each being will wind up looking very close to what we will look like when our evolution is wrapped up here. In between there may be some differences but by the end of our evolution on the earth we will look like those on other planets who have reached the end of their evolution.

Let’s say that were some people living on the Sirius in that system at the end of their evolution. They would look a lot like our final race because trial and error produces a very similar end result. But we have to figure out to get there and what we are going to create. As we evolve, we are going to evolve in ways that we could never imagine right now because we are really at the start of our evolution and we are just getting started to understanding how to use spiritual energies.

When we understand this then we are going to be the creative force that actually organizes the universe. We are going to do things like go to Saturn where the Cassini spacecraft just took pictures and we are going to be able to take the moon Titan and move it out of it’s orbit and closer to the earth and sun so we will be able to populate it and establish a habitable world. We will eventually be able to reorganize our entire solar system so that we can make use of all these planets out there. It is our human nature to always want new experiences and new challenges.

We cannot live without these and it so built into who we are that even when we sleep we cannot do nothing. We still have dreams and in these dreams we do all kinds of crazy things. They are kind of crazy at times but they are still an experience that is very challenging. You will find that some of your dreams are very challenging. So even when we sleep it is in our nature to find something new all the time to experience.

Our inner self conjures up something for us to be entertained because we demand to be entertained and demand to experience new things all the time. The youth want this all the time. When we get old we do not want the new and this is one of the reasons why we die. If we want eternal youth then we must go after new things and new experiences.

So what happens when relative perfection is reached is that life becomes very boring and the lives that reach relative perfection go to sleep. Then what happens is they wake up and merge with other lives and participate in the creation of a greater life and then that greater life does new things. You are composed of trillions of atoms and each one of those atoms is alive, but also asleep, they are asleep and dreaming of being you and you are giving them the experience that they cannot get on their own.

Those little tiny lives live in the cells, atoms, quarks, electrons and things and because they are alive they want something to happen, they want to build new things, to create new things, to have new experiences, and they have done all that they can on their own plane of existence so they have to go to sleep and wake up in you. You are a composite of trillions of other life forms and universes, which are in you. They are all waiting for you to do something interesting. What have you done interesting Wayne to keep the lives within you entertained?

Wayne: I refuse to answer on the grounds that it may incriminate me!

Audience: Laughter

JJ: So interesting it may be illegal huh Wayne! Outside of Wayne the rest of you are really going to have to work on it I think.

Relative Perfection

Book Of Quotes

Inspirational, Spiritual & Metaphysical Quotes

From The Writings Of JJ Dewey

1  To have perfection you have to have a judge of what perfection is.

2  True perfection consists in having the ability to complete a task successfully.

3  If God is ever to create a perfect circle then He would have to have the exact number for pi, for without it a perfect circle is impossible; making the perfection of God impossible.

4  Female energies build forms and male energies destroy forms for in the reaching of the perfection of any decision one must both build and destroy.

5  A reason that people accept Jesus as God is because they see him as being perfect. Actually, there are more scriptures that talk about the perfection of the saints than that of Jesus.

6  That which is above is in the process of evolution and will, at the end of its evolution, be more complex and majestic than that which is below; but that which is below is near the end of its evolution, and has reached relative perfection.

7  Eventually our laws will reach relative perfection where little or no change will be necessary.

8  The only path to relative perfection is to have corrective measure built in the system so correction can be applied as light is revealed.

9  Orthodox Christians say that Jesus was perfect because he obeyed all the laws but the Bible says “The law made NOTHING perfect.”

10  All living things are perfect as the Father is perfect if they follow the harmony of nature.

11  Once relative perfection is reached in the world of form the intelligence behind its creation recognizes it and begins to duplicate this perfection.

12  An injunction to be flawless as is the One God who holds the universe together, and created all the millions of galaxies is like telling a worm to be like a man.

13  It is indeed disturbing for many to contemplate that even heaven or the higher worlds may not be a perfect place.

14  The tiny subatomic lives (which have united as one) which are responsible for the interplay between spirit and matter within us have reached relative perfection, and humankind in relation to the universe is just getting started.

15  We want to make the leap to perfection in one step because the picture painted by some inspired book looks so beautiful and true we cannot bear to live with our imperfect selves another instant.

16  The tiny lives that exist within our bodies that have perfected themselves in their sphere, seek to shift their time awareness and consciousness to harmonize with our own, to them a human is the universal God.

17  In the molecular level relationship has reached relative perfection, whereas the progression of humanity toward their relative perfection in relationship is at fifty percent or less.

18  The Masters use the term “relative perfection” because any concept of perfection is relative to the fulfillment of some objective.

19  The Soul which is above is humanity living on millions of planets throughout the universe. The largest difference between higher soul (humanity) and lower soul (the interplay within us) is that humanity is only at the beginning of its mission in relation to the universe whereas the microcosmic soul has reached relative perfection.

20  The Christ through Jesus perfectly (relative perfection) manifested both love and wisdom as well as anchoring the will of God on the earth in a way that had not been done before.

21  The word equivalent to the modern word perfect is AKRIBELA and if you check your Bible Concordance you will not find this word ever used in connection with God or Jesus.

22  What perfection is, is different for each person. To the Jews who crucified Jesus, He was one of the most imperfect beings who ever lived. To the born again Christian, He is completely flawless.

23  Ultimate Perfection is an illusion and actually undesirable. If we were to live in a state where there could not exist a goal to progress even higher then there would be no joy in living.

24  We have the concept of perfection and imperfection in the world of form, but in the formless world of origination this concept is meaningless. Perfection has meaning when form is in the process of creation or has materialized.

25  A life whether it be an atom, a worm, a man or a planetary Spirit evolves to relative perfection within its sphere. When this relative perfection is reached its progression on an individual basis comes to an end, but it uses molecular principles (see The Molecular Relationship) to enter a path of higher evolution.

26  Becoming, or evolving toward ultimate perfection within the various spheres, is the destiny of all the sons and daughters of mankind.

27  It is only after many attempts at trial and error, and then learning from mistakes, that relative perfection is finally obtained.

28  We presently have a system of numbers and math that allows us to assign an exact figure (say one foot) to a distance that no one has been able to measure as existing in the real world.

29  The word perfection only applies to form; talking about perfection when there is no form is meaningless from our point of view.

30  With relative perfection one can reach a state where the entity has a skill down pat so he becomes a reliable performer or he has achieved a particular goal to his satisfaction, but soon he finds another skill to master and another goal to achieve.

31  The reason absolute perfection is an illusion is because to believe in such a thing one must negate the eternal principle of correction. Because correction is always taking place absolute perfection cannot be.

32  If everything were perfect we wouldn’t be here to begin with and there would be no illusion, which is imperfect.

33  What is the perfect diamond, the perfect look, the perfect color, the perfect flower? What is perfect is what we define as perfect, or cannot be improved upon, and each person has a different idea of what that is.

34  God cannot create a perfect world for you and me because we define and see perfection differently. A perfect world to one may be hell to another.

35  When you look in the eyes of another and see only perfection what do you see? You see the face of Christ and this opens the door of the soul.

36  Perfection is a journey rather than a final adjustment.

What Are You Deciding To Become?

Book Of Quotes

Inspirational, Spiritual and Metaphysical Quotes

From The Writings Of JJ Dewey

1  The translation “I AM” is incorrect and misleading. In the Hebrew it reads:  “I AM BECOMING.”

2  When the seeker says he has found the ultimate feeling, bliss, or God Presence, he knows not that he is only at the beginning of his journey. No matter how high the consciousness, bliss or joy, the seeker adjusts to it and eventually becomes ready for more. When he is ready, the more will come, worlds without end.

3  Additional seeking is always necessary no matter where we think we are upon the Path. There is always more BECOMING ahead of us.

4  BECOMING is the action of Purpose, the dominating good which interpenetrates both male and female energies.

5  Unfortunately the word BEING is associated by many with the decision “not to be” as spoken by Shakespeare. True BEING is not yielding to the line of least resistance but after we have taken “arms against a sea of troubles,” and have prevailed as Gods – only then will true BEING become known and no longer esoteric to us.

6  We are in a state of eternal becoming because there is no ultimate perfection.

7  He, who humbles himself before those greater than himself and before those seeking the light from his radiance, will be endowed with the glory of God from on High and generations unborn will yet warm themselves with his light and love.

8  Let us join the great ones together, my friends, and humble ourselves; so any greatness which is manifest is from the one Spirit that permeates us all.

9  “Being yourself,” for many of us, involves recognizing that we have a purpose for being here. Our obligation–our opportunity–is to discern what that purpose is, and then surrender to whatever it requires of us to fulfill. It can be a source of deep joy:  service to humanity, in whatever form, is deeply satisfying.

10  Part of being humble is just being you.

11  The I AM of itself is not wrong or evil for it is a description of BEING which is the foundation of life for us all. Where the problem comes in our evolution is where we become lazy and cease to become and just “be.”

12  We only go forward on the path by amplifying our power to decide in harmony with the Will of God and then bring that decision into reality through BECOMING.

13  God works through each of us and BECOMES who He decides to be through us so long as we follow the Spirit of God within each of our inner selves.

14  Incorporated in BECOMING is BEING.

15  In order to become, one first must be, or become alive. Becoming only increases the sense of being alive.

16  You have “to be” before you can “become.”  You do not “become” so you can “be.”

17  If you are in a state of “being” only, you are enjoying a temporary rest. When you are “becoming,”  your life is in a state of “being” with the added aspect of “becoming.”

18  Those who live upon the sea of hateful and bitter emotions despise the good, the beautiful and the true. They die as to the things of the Spirit.

19  Greatness is seen in worldly power and money rather than in spiritual power, intelligence and character.

20  Many of those who fight the truth of the soul will be stolen and taken away by the spirit of Christ and removed from their illusions.

21  To become the greatest possible help to others who are under negative influence, it is important to develop your sensitivity to the feelings (and sometimes thoughts) of those within your aura of concern.

22  As an individual you can, through the soul, contact the spiritual worlds and your own higher self, which is a Master upon its own plane.

23  How does the Beast of unjust authority want you to see yourself: as I AM, standing still – easy to control, or I AM BECOMING, changing and improving and therefore difficult to control?

24  All activity that one can engage in is pushing toward the fulfillment of a conscious intelligent goal set by someone somewhere.

25  If one wants to accomplish beyond the norm he must not only believe but make a decision within his ring of consciousness.

26  A goal is a specific believable objective set by the mind and accepted by the heart. It includes definite steps that will be taken to ensure its completion at an approximated time.

27  We can become a member of the heavenly Jerusalem at any moment that we “overcome” and obtain soul contact and the Christ consciousness.

28  The principles that just are cannot be altered or changed but must be mastered and used to mold creation to a desired end. That desired end is that which we DECIDE and creates the process of BECOMING.

29  When we realize that we are BECOMING beings, we discover the truth and the truth sets us free. Free to do what? Free to DECIDE for ourselves and BECOME that which we decide to become.

30  The path for us to become one with God and manifest the name within is us for us to take upon ourselves the name of Jesus Christ by committing ourselves to the highest service that we know and then practice the science of BECOMING the highest that you can DECIDE to BECOME.

31  It is only after a decision has been made that Purpose is made manifest even though they both silently co-exist in the mind of the Creator. Then it is only after a purpose is sensed that Power can be applied. Again it is only after purpose and power is in play that Will can be exercised to manifest the decision.

32  You may receive inspiration, knowledge and some guidance, but your own power of discernment and DECISION will always play a large part in how you will apply yourself.

33  We begin to win at the game of life when our ATTENTION is focused in one direction rather than scattered.

34  Put your attention on finding that which is true rather than that which is in error.

35  Any denial of that which is true, leads to greater failures than those experienced by one who faces the truth of failure and perseveres in learning from it and turning it into success.

36  The mirror of ourselves is always out there in the world of our creation. I seek to help you create a more loving world to reflect back to you.

37  To become a Master one must not only balance off cause and effect as it relates to others, but also as it relates to oneself and between the lower and higher self.

38  When the heart and mind are in agreement (as was Jesus and the Christ) then there is peace and harmony and miracles happen in your life.

39  I caught a glimpse of the suffering humans experience on the earth, and I saw much of it happens because people just don’t take the course of action they know within their hearts they are supposed to do.

40  If you look for verification of something that you have a preconceived notion is true, then you will find evidence to prove it, at least to yourself. This will happen whether the notion is true or false.

41  The Still Small Voice is the revelation of “Direction.” It is fortunate for humanity that the use of this requires no great spiritual evolution. The only real requirement is that a seeker seeks that which he understands as the guidance of God. He must do so with sincerity of heart and pure intent.

42  When God switched from the state of Being to BECOMING, the worlds of form were created.

43  My conscience is a perfect man whom I would like to see.

44  If we can attain a true realization that we are truly a reflection of the Solar Angel, and one life with it, then we can become as Christ and have power over physical reality and even death.

45  Keep checking with your souls, and when the link called in the east the antahkarana is created, then the seeker graduates from a sheep to a disciple to a shepherd.

46  As you double your ability to achieve, your opportunity to use other people’s energy and efforts will multiply geometrically.

47  If you are a light to the world and light is produced by contrast would this not indicate that you should live a life that appears in sharp contrast to average “Joe six pack”?

48  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.

49  Seek ye therefore the baptism of fire and the Holy Spirit, the greatest of the gifts of God in this life.

50  All who follow the highest they know will join with the higher consciousness and share a oneness with them and assist in the great work.

51  If the seeker follows the direction of the peace that passes understanding then he will be led to true vision.

52  When you make a decision around some goal of becoming that decision relates to what you will be in a future time or what you shall become.

53  Contemplate the part of you that actually decides and you can feel that link between you and God. It uses your bodies but it is not your bodies.

54  What are you deciding to become?
