Belief – Faith

Ruth: So we should always question our soul and intuition? Isn’t the Spirit within the true voice anyway? Entering the Kingdom is entering the spiritual consciousness, rather than the lower consciousness.
JJ The trouble is that we have two voices within. The first is a voice created by the emotional/astral self. This was that which was called in the Bible “the heart which is deceitful above all things.” This does not represent the true heart energies but is the closest thing to it until the energy of spiritual love is recognized.
Many people seek the inner voice for lifetimes and the highest they achieve is the astral voice that always leads them to upside down truths and keeps them in illusion.
The seeker must question all things, including the astral inner voice before he can find the sure voice of the soul.
Then when he first discovers the true voice he will have difficulty in accepting it as real at first and will question its reality. It is only after the true voice proves itself a number of times that the seeker finally accepts it as reliable and begins to trust it. After he has proven its reliability and trusts it the power of the voice is increased until it becomes strong enough that there is no question that the seeker is hearing the true voice when it comes.
A sure reliance on the true voice will take a number of lifetimes and for the seeker who has mastered it in the past – he will still have to remaster it in the current life – though it could be much quicker because he doesn’t have to start from scratch.
Ruth How does one first prove or test that Jesus will raise another person from the dead, until the actual deed has taken place?
JJ Martha had already seen Jesus perform a lot of miracles and this increased her faith. To her credit the inner voice confirmed that Jesus could raise Lazarus and she accepted this.
Ruth quoting me: “He who masters intuition knows, and knows that he knows, and knows why he knows.”
JJ But before this happens the seeker will mistake the astral voice many times for the true voice. After all, he has nothing to compare the astral voice to until he hears and recognizes the true voice.
Ruth: Oh now I get it. So when God told Joe Smith to go west and save himself, he said no because he was too skeptical of that inner voice and had to test it, so he went and got killed instead?
JJ He wasn’t skeptical of the inner voice. He knew he should have followed it but the pressure from his wife, brother and others just got the best of him and he ignored the voice to his peril.
Ruth: For the rest of my life and the next and next one, I am supposed to question all of JJ’s teachings, all of Jesus teachings and all of the DK teachings, just in case they are all wrong?
JJ It doesn’t matter if God himself is speaking question anything that doesn’t make sense and seek understanding until you can make sense of a thing and have it register positive with your soul. I question DK regularly and this helps me see his teachings from a wider angle.
Ruth Glad Mary and Martha and all those other women did not question their soul voice when it came to Jesus depending on their faith and belief in those healings.
JJ But they did question it many times previously until they learned to recognize the difference between the true voice and the astral.
Ruth If I was to continuously question that which I know is true, then I will never truly believe in myself or my ability to know truth via soul.
JJ Use the things you are sure is true as a foundation, but ever so often one must reexamine himself and question all things. I do this with myself. If I didn’t do this I would probably still be a regular church member as when I was younger I was very sure that I was on the path of highest knowledge, but because I was open to all things I discovered I was wrong and reset my compass.
However, the true principles that were confirmed by my soul when I was younger are still true today. I just needed a path correction and needed the realization that the soul only gives you the portion of a picture that you can handle at the time.

Here’s a great quote from Donald Trump that Sterling dug up:
Let me get this straight . . . … We’re going to be “gifted” with a health care Plan we are forced to purchase and Fined if we don’t, Which purportedly covers at least Ten million more people, Without adding a single new doctor, But provides for 16,000 new IRS agents, Written by a committee whose chairman Says he doesn’t understand it, Passed by a Congress that didn’t read it but Exempted themselves from it, And signed by a President who smokes, With funding administered by a treasury chief who Didn’t pay his taxes, For which we’ll be taxed for four years before any Benefits take effect, By a government which has Already bankrupted Social Security and Medicare, All to be overseen by a surgeon general Who is obese, And financed by a country that’s broke!!!!!

Re: PI is wrong?

Here was a readers comments in PI which I thought was interesting:
What’s the big deal? We cannot handle doubling a constant? Besides, while some formulas are simpler, others are more complex. Circumference becomes Tau x R instead of 2 x Pi x R, but at the same time Tau x D / 2 instead of Pi x D. Area of the circle is now Tau x R^2/2 instead of a simpler Pi x R^2. I think what this “innovation” shows is that we have gotten so bad at math that we are not able to perform trivial algebraic and arithmetic transformations intuitively. But if calling 2xPi Tau saves space in some formulas, why not use it? At the same time, we still need Pi to keep others simple.

Glad you like that series. I got distracted and never returned to finish that book. I still plan on doing so one day not too far away now. When finished it may capture some attention.
I was wondering if you if you were ever going to finish this book? I often refer people to it for an overview of our human progression when the topic comes up it is done so well. Now of course I had to track down each link in the archives. I liked it better when we could just click on the next chapter or go to an index of all these works. > > I know your not very busy these days so I thought I would give you something to do for a change… ;D LOL! > > For those of you who have not read it or its been a long time here you go… > > Blayne > > http://www.freeread.com/archives/1633.html > http://www.freeread.com/archives/1635.html > http://www.freeread.com/archives/1637.html > http://www.freeread.com/archives/1642.html > http://www.freeread.com/archives/1645.html > http://www.freeread.com/archives/1648.html > http://www.freeread.com/archives/1650.html > http://www.freeread.com/archives/1654.html > http://www.freeread.com/archives/1658.html > http://www.freeread.com/archives/1665.html
What lives fuse to enter the kingdom?
July 7, 2011
JJ [archives]: > “… each time a new kingdom is entered lives are fused to create a greater life.” – http://freeread.com/archives/1633.html
Dan: So, when a human “graduates” to the god kingdom, what lives fuse?
JJ First remember that higher correspondences are loosely like the lower but are also different. The correspondences are never exact and the higher must be discern intuitively. Seeking an exact correspondence will never reveal the full truth for the life of God is always applying new intelligence on each new level.
We are all fragments of a greater whole. When a successful human molecule is created the various entities create stations for the atomic units but these may not be your true fragmented parts. As you enter the next kingdom your soul searches for your true parts that you will fuse with. It may be some time before this happens as other parts of yourself may not yet have entered the fifth kingdom but are regular humans not yet aware of you.
The Five Tibetans

Dan: So for those of us not at the gathering, what are the benefits of spinning JJ? And why is one direction (clockwise, if you laid a clock face-up on the ground) better than the other?
JJ I got an email from a woman’s only website that was supposed to contain a weight loss secret connected to spinning. I guess with a handle like “JJ” they didn’t know I was a guy. I decided to check it out. The site is at: http://www.weightlossguideforwomen.com
The author says she has received many positive comments of improvements in health from people who practice spinning clockwise, but if they spin the other way nothing much happens.
I found the book you linked to enlightening, however, because it explains the principle of activating the spinning energy centers in the body with a number of exercises. I plan on diligently applying these and monitoring the results.

Spinning (was Re: The Five Tibetans
Ruthangel I’m wondering if clockwise or counter clockwise had anything to do with the hemisphere???
JJ The body needs to spin clockwise not because of anything esoteric but because the energy centers it stimulates spin that direction. The clockwise spinning stimulates the spin of the centers in their natural direction and this increases energy flow to the whole body. That is the teaching anyway.
It is true that the natural spin of our various centers is linked to higher things but that is another subject.
I’d recommend reading the booklet Larry and Dan referenced.

I want to thank all those who came to the gathering. It was one more special occasion. A lot of the attraction for the group is just meeting each other and mingling.
The theme for the gathering was health and we covered a lot of good material but there were several things that I forgot to mention. One very important one was diet sodas and artificial sweeteners.
From the time I first tasted artificial sweetener I knew that they are not good for you. It tastes like nothing natural on earth – like it is manufactured from some chemical waste dump.
What really amazed me is how many people used them and seemed to actually like them. The only explanation I can think of is you acquire a taste after you use them for a while. As for me this was not something I want to acquire a taste for but even so a couple times a year I may drink something with artificial sweeteners as it is in so many things that it is difficult to avoid completely.
It is difficult to tell what has artificial sweeteners from the label as there are so many variations of them with numerous names. I read that they are sometimes added to natural sweeteners and not listed in the ingredients. Sometimes the only way you can tell is from the taste.
Below is the results of several studies showing some of the disadvantages. It is interesting that people use them to save calories, but those who drink diet sodas gain more weight than those who use regular sugar drinks.
I think the problems it causes are much greater than revealed by any study so far. Michael J. Fox was famous for endorsing Diet Pepsi and look at he poor guy now. I wouldn’t be surprised if the diet drinks weren’t largely responsible for his condition.
Anyway – here’s some thought provoking data.
People who drink diet soft drinks don’t lose weight. In fact, they gain weight, a new study shows.
The findings come from eight years of data collected by Sharon P. Fowler, MPH, and colleagues at the University of Texas Health Science Center, San Antonio. Fowler reported the data at the annual meeting of the American Diabetes Association in San Diego.
“What didn’t surprise us was that total soft drink use was linked to overweight and obesity,” Fowler tells WebMD. “What was surprising was when we looked at people only drinking diet soft drinks, their risk of obesity was even higher.”
In fact, when the researchers took a closer look at their data, they found that nearly all the obesity risk from soft drinks came from diet sodas.
“There was a 41% increase in risk of being overweight for every can or bottle of diet soft drink a person consumes each day,” Fowler says. More Diet Drinks, More Weight Gain
Fowler’s team looked at seven to eight years of data on 1,550 Mexican-American and non-Hispanic white Americans aged 25 to 64. Of the 622 study participants who were of normal weight at the beginning of the study, about a third became overweight or obese.
For regular soft-drink drinkers, the risk of becoming overweight or obese was:
26% for up to 1/2 can each day 30.4% for 1/2 to one can each day 32.8% for 1 to 2 cans each day 47.2% for more than 2 cans each day.
For diet soft-drink drinkers, the risk of becoming overweight or obese was:
36.5% for up to 1/2 can each day 37.5% for 1/2 to one can each day 54.5% for 1 to 2 cans each day 57.1% for more than 2 cans each day.
For each can of diet soft drink consumed each day, a person’s risk of obesity went up 41% http://www.webmd.com/diet/news/20050613/drink-more-diet-soda-gain-more-weight
New research that links diet soda consumption with an increased risk of heart attack and stroke has doctors urging caution about the controversial and preliminary results. According to a study of more than 2,500 people presented today as a poster at the American Stroke Association International Stroke Conference in Los Angeles, people who drank diet soda daily had a 61 percent increased risk of cardiovascular events compared to those who drank no soda, even when accounting for smoking, physical activity, alcohol consumption and calories consumed per day. “This study suggests that diet soda is not an optimal substitute for sugar-sweetened beverages, and may be associated with a greater risk of stroke,” Hannah Gardener of the University of Miami and her colleagues reported at the conference. http://abcnews.go.com/Health/HeartHealth/diet-soda-linked-heart-attack-stroke-ri\ sk/story?id=12868269
Watch your kidneys, folks.
Researchers analyzing the health habits of thousands of nurses found that women who drank two or more diet sodas daily had a two-fold increase in the risk of a significantly faster drop in their kidneys’ ability to filter blood compared with those who drank one or none.
Another analysis by the same pair of Harvard researchers found that eating a lot of salt also hurt kidney’s filtering power over time.
“While more study is needed, our research suggests that higher sodium and artificially sweetened beverages are associated with a greater rate of decline in kidney function,” Dr. Julie Lin, a kidney specialist at Brigham and Women’s Hospital in Boston, said in a statement. http://www.npr.org/blogs/health/2009/11/diet_sodas_may_hurt_kidneys.html

I figured someone must have checked this out and there would be some evidence of his past, but considering the meager evidence of his existence in the past I thought “Does Obama Exist?” was a funny question to ask.

Sex & the Throat Center
July 15, 2011
There were questions a while back regarding sex and the throat center. Here are a few interesting things from the Bailey writings on the subject:
This point has been enlarged upon because so many people, and particularly men, find that the animal nature requires attention when they begin to meditate. They discover within themselves uncontrolled desires, plus physiological effects which cause them acute trouble and discouragement. A person may have a high aspiration and a strong urge towards spiritual living and yet have aspects of his nature still uncontrolled. The energy that pours in during meditation pours down through the mechanism and stimulates the entire sex apparatus. The weak point is always discovered and stimulated. The cure for this situation can be summed up in the words: control of the thought life and transmutation. An intense mental preoccupation and interest should be cultivated in other directions than the line of least resistance sex. There should be an endeavor at all times to keep the energy contacted in the head and to permit it to work out through creative activity of some kind. The eastern teaching tells us that energy, usually directed to the functioning of the sex life, has to be raised and carried to the head and throat, particularly the latter, as it is, we are told, the centre of creative work. To put it in western terms, this means that we learn to transmute the energy utilized in the procreative process or in sex thoughts and use it in the work of creative writing, in artistic endeavor, or in some expression of group activity. The tendency in modern times to find the one-pointed thinker and purely mental type evading marriage and as he frequently does leading a purely celibate life, may be a demonstration of the truth of the eastern position. It is causing a good deal of concern among those who study our falling birth rate. Transmutation is not surely the death of an activity or a cessation of functioning on any level of consciousness for the sake of a higher. It is the right utilization of the various aspects of energy wherever the Self feels they should be used for the furthering of the ends of evolution, and the helping of the Plan. The mind, illumined by the soul, should be the controlling factor, and when we think straight, live straight, and raise all thoughts and energies into the “Heavenly places” we shall solve our problems through the development of a spiritual normality which is greatly needed at this time, particularly among aspirants and esoteric students. From Intellect to Intuition, Pages 259-261
The first indications of glamour arose when the disciples and the aspirants of the Lemurian world (whose problem was the right comprehension, correct functioning and control of the physical body) began to differentiate between themselves, as self-conscious beings, and physical and vital forces. That immediately set up a tremendous activity in the throat centre which is the higher aspect of the sacral centre (the sex centre) and thus led to the initial glamour and to the first definite recognition and consideration of the sex impulse, of sex attraction, and for the initiate of that period of the necessary sex transmutation. This went hand in hand with the earliest Yoga, or the cult of the physical body with the objective of its control by the soul, and the consequent merging of the conscious and the subconscious. Glamour Page 107
Let the disciple transfer the fire from the lower triangle to the higher, and preserve that which is created through the fire of the midway point.
This means, literally, the control by the initiate of the sex impulse, as usually understood, and the transference of the fire which now normally vitalises the generative organs to the throat centre, thus leading to creation upon the mental plane through the agency of mind. That which is to be created must then be nourished and sustained by the love energy of nature issuing from the heart centre. Initiation, Human & Solar, Page 204
Apart from a consideration of this along the lines of the conservation of energy, there is another angle from which the aspirant approaches the problem and that is the transmutation of the vital principle (as manifested through the physical organism) into the dynamic demonstration of it as manifested through the organ of sound, or creation, through the word, the work of the true magician. There is as all students of occultism know, a close connection between the organs of generation and the third major centre, the throat centre. This is apparent physiologically in the change of voice seen during the adolescent period. Through the true conservation of energy and abstention from incontinence, the yogi becomes a creator on the mental plane through the use of the word and of sounds, and the energy which can be dissipated through the activity of the lower centre is concentrated and transmuted into the great creative work of the magician. This is done through continence, pure living and clean thinking, and not through any perversions of occult truth such as sex magic and the enormities of the sex perversions of various so-called occult schools. The latter are on the black path and do not lead to the portal of initiation. Light of the Soul, Page 200
The energy of the sacral centre which feeds the generative organs is in due course of time transferred into the throat centre. The creative process is then carried on by thought, sound and the spoken Word. Hunger and thirst are the two aspects of desire, the one, hunger, being positive, masculine and grasping; the other, thirst, being negative, feminine and receptive. Those two words are but symbols of the two great impulses underlying the sex impulse. When these impulses are dominated and controlled, then the energy of the centre lying behind the organs concerned, can be carried upward to the throat, and hunger and thirst are arrested in the esoteric sense. It should be borne in mind here that these two words are the physical plane analogies to the great pairs of opposites which the yogi has to balance and which he does balance when the solar plexus is performing its highest function. Light of the Soul, Page 312
First, the energies below the diaphragm have to be lifted up and blended with those above the diaphragm. With the process and rules for so doing we cannot here deal, except in one case, the raising of the sacral energy to the throat centre, or the transmutation of the process of physical reproduction and of physical creation into that of the creativeness of the artist in some field of creative expression. Through the union of the energies of these two centres we shall come to that stage in our development wherein we shall produce the children of our skill and minds. Where, in other words, there is a true union of the higher and the lower energies, you will have the emergence of beauty in form, the enshrining of some aspect of truth in appropriate expression, and thus the enriching of the world. Where there is this synthesis, the true creative artist begins to function. The throat, the organ of the Word, expresses the life and manifests the glory and the reality behind. Such is the symbolism lying behind the teaching of the fusion of the lower energies with the higher, and of this, physical plane sex is a symbol. Mankind today is rapidly becoming more creative, for the transfusion of the energies is going on under the new impulses. As we develop the sense of purity in man, as the growth of the sense of responsibility is fostered, and as his love of beauty, of colour and of ideas proceeds, we shall have a rapid increase in the raising of the lower into union with the higher, and thereby the beautifying of the Temple of the Lord will be tremendously accelerated.
