The Dweller on the Threshold
A reader mentioned that the Aquarian Gospel is a channeled work. By general definition a channeler is one who gives up his consciousness to create a channel for an outside entity so such an entity can speak or channel through the medium.
This is also known as “direct voice” and this method usually reaches either a thoughtform or an astral entity who knows less about the mysteries of existence than do many members of this group.
A much higher and accurate method is mental telepathy. Some outside of the Brotherhood of Light have the ability to use this, but in their communications the Brotherhood will almost always use this or higher methods, unless there is a direct visitation.
One of the higher methods is called by AAB the “science of impression.” This works through the intuition and by this method a “flashing forth” is created where there is an immediate transfer of a package of information through the use of the language of principles.
Then the highest from our point of view is “inspiration” or direct revelation from God as some Christians call it.
Still another is the reading of the Akashic records through meditation, crystals or other means. Some read a reflection of these records from the astral realm and their accuracy is very low. Others read them with the aid of a Master or the Higher Self and have great accuracy.
As we leave the channeling behind we see that the quality of work received by these higher methods is much higher than the channeled material. It may not have the flowery words and data, but will speak accurate truth to the soul.
The one criteria that runs through all high revelation is the continuity of consciousness. The works of Blavatsky, Alice A. Bailey, A Course in Miracles, the Bible, Book of Mormon, The Koran and other holy books were received this way.
The Aquarian Gospel was not voice channeled, but Levi entered a state of conscious meditation and read the Akashic records. I personally believe he was 90% accurate or better as he related the life of Jesus.
I believe we have credibly established that Jesus went through tremendous stress in the garden of Gethsemane and blood came to the surface of his skin because of the agony. I see no evidence that this was symbolic writing, even though there is always symbolism behind real events.
A large portion of the cause of the distress was covered in my posted book the Molecular Relationship. For those of you who are new you may need to read the book to receive a full understanding of what I wrote here. Nevertheless, I will quote part of it here.
Keep in mind that Jesus created a human Molecule of twelve units and I am here describing the stress caused by the temporary destruction of it by Judas.
Jesus himself was severely affected by the betrayal. At the point in time when Judas completely decided to turn on his Master and was with the Jewish leaders Jesus had brought three of the apostles to Gethsemane. We are told that he “began to be sorrowful and very heavy. Then saith he unto them, My Soul is exceeding sorrowful, even unto death: tarry ye here, and watch with me.” Matt 26:37-38 Mark also described him as “sore amazed.” Mark 14:33
Some of these words are not translated very accurately. “Sorrowful and heavy” come from LUPEO and ADEMONEO. “Sorrowful” is a fairly accurate rendering of LUPEO. It implies great sorrow, distress or grief. ADEMONEO implies a great distress of the mind or Soul. It could be translated as “anguish” or “depression.” It most exactly means that the soul of Jesus was saturated with a feeling of foreboding.
The second “sorrowful” comes from PERILUPOS. This has essentially the same meaning as LUPEO with the addition of the prefix PERI. This implies that the sorrow surrounded and completely permeated Jesus.
“Watch” comes from GREGOREUO which means to be awake or fully aware of what is going on. It implies the opposite of death or sleep.
“Amazed” comes from EKTHAMBEO which implies a state of mind that is astounded by what is happening and is in a state of wonderment.
What do we get from this? When Judas was in the process of betraying his Lord, Jesus was so completely overcome with a feeling of sorrow, heaviness, and distress of mind that he was astounded that such a thing could happen to him, the greatest of us all. The feeling was so intense that he thought that if it became any worse, he would die before any cross would get him. He was “sorrowful even unto death…”
The feeling was so bad he pleaded for his apostles to “watch” or be fully aware with him so he could draw strength from them.
The pain became so great he asked his Father to remove the cup from him “And being in agony he prayed more earnestly: and his sweat was as it were great drops of blood falling down to the ground.” Luke 22:44
Does this pain and heaviness that nearly killed Jesus have anything to do with the betrayal of Judas?
The answer is yes… it had everything to do with it. A Human Molecule of eleven did not conduct the spiritual energy flow, nor did it produce the same results as did the twelve. When Judas withdrew his energy, the whole Molecule was shattered and the tremendous spiritual power that had been flowing through Jesus and the apostles had been interrupted. They were all affected, but Jesus felt the brunt of it since he was the focal point. They were all sustaining a strong spiritual flow and when it was cut off, it felt as if their very life was dissolving. Jesus almost died and the apostles could not stay awake. He only brought three of the eleven to Gethsemane. Perhaps the other eight were still back in the room of the last supper asleep through depletion of energy. Whatever the case, he hoped to create some Molecular flow between himself and Peter, James and John. This would have returned him some of his strength.
The effort failed. Three times Jesus tried to revive the three apostles to share awareness with him and three times they fell back into a deathlike sleep.
Finally, he reached a point at which he could no longer continue on the physical plane without a recharge of energy. At this point: “There appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening him.” Luke 22:43
This angel was a member of the Molecule which existed in the Spiritual Hierarchy of which Jesus was a member. This angel then was able to re-establish in Jesus the spiritual flow he needed to continue his work. After this, he woke the apostles for the fourth time and this time they stayed awake. Jesus was able to recharge them so they could be themselves again.
We all know the story from here. Jesus was taken, crucified, and after three days he rose from the dead. Sometime after this later event, the eleven met together on the day of Pentecost. From the time of the betrayal to this time the apostles were just ordinary men, but now they were inspired to rectify this situation. They were going to add the additional unit to their group to make the complete Molecule of Twelve. They chose Matthias and immediately after he (and his female partner who is not mentioned) joined the group to complete the mystical number of twelve their minds were united “with one accord in one place: And suddenly there came a sound from heaven as of a rushing of a mighty wind, and it filled all the house where they were sitting. And there appeared unto them cloven tongues like as of fire, and it sat upon each of them. And they were all filled with the Holy Ghost, and began to speak with other tongues, as the Spirit gave them utterance.” Acts 2:1-4
Now this was an agony separate from the taking on the “sins of the world.”
Let us state the basic belief of most Christians concerning Christ in this regard. It goes something like this.
He came to redeem us from our sins, or to take upon Him the sins of the world. If we believe on him or his name and repent our sins will be removed. Many believe that in the Garden of Gethsemane He took upon Him or suffered for the sins of the world and this was a payment made by God so that we would not have to pay for our sins ourselves if we have faith or repent.
Now we have already pointed out that in that age sin was error and the great error by the “unsaved” was guilt. As far as the result of our actions go Jesus did nothing to nullify causes and we must all deal with effects of past causes. After a manner of speaking though he did take upon himself our sins.
Alice A. Bailey stated that he established a thread or link to Shamballa in the garden.
There is one thing that many do not realize about the higher centers of the earth and that is this. The relationship of the Masters such as Christ to the higher permanent inhabitants of Shamballa corresponds to the human relationship to the Masters. Just as it is very difficult for us to catch the attention of the Masters even so is it difficult for the Masters to catch the attention of the Ancient of Days and His Council Chamber.
The inhabitants of Shamballa of course are aware of all the goings on within and on the earth but did not in the past respond directly to humanity because their energy was too powerful. One must remember that they are focussed in the first ray energy of power rather than love-wisdom as are the Masters.
The Christ in Jesus was the first in human flesh of this earth to make a direct contact with the Shamballa energy, but in order to make that contact he had to face the Dweller on the threshold for all humanity.
Our individual Dweller is a powerful thoughtform which is created by the negative energy of all of our fears, mistakes, “sins” guilt and illusions from all of our past lives rolled into one bundle. The disciple has numerous partial contacts with the Dweller before he comes face to face with it.
We talked earlier about when a person makes a step forward in his spiritual progression that within several days there seems to be a strong negative force pulling him away from the Path. Many see this as a direct work of the devil, but in reality it is our Dweller coming back to haunt us.
The Dweller is actually a low life form that is fighting for its life and as such will do everything within its power to survive. Fear is its main weapon for when the disciple overcomes his fears and faces the Dweller it begins to “die” and go back to its source.
The disciple must face the Dweller before the third initiation of transfiguration. Before Jesus was transfigured he had to face his Dweller . This happened when he went into the wilderness and faced the three famous temptations.
The Apostle Paul faced his Dweller and was temporarily blinded by it.
Some have had to face the Dweller over a long period of time.
Moses received a partial revelation of God In Egypt. This was what converted him to identify with the Hebrews for he did not fully believe it until it was revealed to him.
Later he fled Egypt and spent forty years herding sheep gaining the courage to face his Dweller. When he finally did face it he then crossed the threshold and talked with God.
Joseph Smith had an interesting encounter with the Dweller:
“After I had retired to the place where I had previously designed to go, having looked around me, and finding myself alone, I kneeled down and began to offer up the desires of my heart to God. I had scarcely done so, when immediately I was seized upon by some power which entirely overcame me, and had such an astonishing influence over me as to bind my tongue so that I could not speak. Thick darkness gathered around me, and it seemed to me for a time as if I were doomed to sudden destruction.
“ But, exerting all my powers to call upon God to deliver me out of the power of this enemy which had seized upon me, and at the very moment when I was ready to sink into despair and abandon myself to destruction–not to some imaginary ruin, but to the power of some actual being from the unseen world, who had such marvelous power as I had never before felt in any being–just at this moment of great alarm, I saw a pillar of light exactly over my head, above the brightness of the sun, which descended gradually until it fell upon me.”
Joseph Smith was quite fortunate to have a single intense encounter with the Dweller as he entered into the Presence.
Even though many disciples mistake the Dweller for the Dark Brothers it is really a presence of our own creations. Nevertheless, when the disciple approaches the transfiguration initiation it will get the attention of the Dark Ones and in this case will do what they can to assist the Dweller.
Now facing our individual Dweller is a terrifying experience beyond the imagination of most seekers. Imagine what it was like for Christ who had to face the Dweller for all humanity in order to establish a link for us with the Shamballa energy. This Dweller he faced was the combination of all negative energies created by mankind since the first man. Even though it was written that he took upon himself the sins of the world it may be more accurately stated that he faced and penetrated the sins of the world and established the link with the Planetary Logos which would eventually end all sin and guide mankind to relative perfection.
As we explained earlier there were two entities involved in the mission of Jesus. The first was the man Jesus who was Joshua in a past life. The second was the Christ himself who entered and shared the body of Jesus after his baptism. The Christ was the same as he who was Melchizedek.
Jesus suffered great pain because of the shattering of the molecule through Judas and the Christ suffered through the facing of the Dweller. Both of these experiences created such anguish for the body of Jesus that an angel had to appear and strengthen him or he would have died right there.
Now the interesting thing is that Jesus going to the cross was the easiest part. The worst was over and some sense of relief was held. In fact a fragment of the Gospel of Peter tells us that Jesus actually laughed on the cross.
He had power to cancel out the pain if he so desired. Perhaps he was amused that his disciples thought this was the tough part. Little did they know.
