Bit from new book…

The ONLY part of yourself capable of experiencing those vibrational energies Within you that are not physical… is the part of yourself that is part of Reality, Spirituality, or mistaken as ‘nothing’. That is, your Apapsyche [Operational Energy of your Soul], and its aspect of ‘Intuition,” which is not the part of you that dies. Your Soul has the potential of becoming immortal, in other words.

Listening to God = the purpose of life

The “purpose of Life” is to help the Soul discover everything God is, can do, and can become?  It is the wonder of doing so [in its latter stages] that each Soul is on Earth to do [as opposed to the common idea that life exists for Man to eat, drink, and make merry]!   Alas… not all Souls are aware of the purpose of life?

Psalm 46:10   “Be still, and know that I am God. I will be exalted among the nations, I will be exalted in the earth!

1 Peter 2:1-25   So put away all malice and all deceit and hypocrisy and envy and all slander. Like newborn infants, long for the pure spiritual milk, that by it you may grow up into salvation— if indeed you have tasted that the Lord is good. As you come to him, a living stone rejected by men but in the sight of God chosen and precious, you yourselves like living stones are being built up as a spiritual house, to be a holy priesthood, to offer spiritual sacrifices acceptable to God through Jesus Christ. …

How can any Soul learn, other than by experiencing the Earth in the physical body, which exists for this express purpose?  The Bible tells us that God created Man in His own “image”. Discovering what this means is the secret of how one “learns” how to listen to God.

2 Timothy 4:2   Preach the word; be ready in season and out of season; reprove, rebuke, and exhort, with complete patience and teaching.

“Reprove, rebuke, and exhort,” is a form of love, it seems to me. At least that is how I “hear” the message.

2 Timothy 3:16-17   All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be competent, equipped for every good work.

The mystics tell us that to “hear” the “word” of God, one must find a way to reach what is called the “eye center,” which is a mystical [invisible] point between the two eyes. And we are told that this can be done via ‘meditation’.  A specialized meditation to be sure, but it is something Man is designed to do.  And the difficulty in doing this is quite likely relative to how much negative Karma a person has to clear out of the way… before one reaches this ‘eye center’ or what the mystics call the “Tisra Til,” which the mystics tell us requires that one must first find a Perfect Living Master. And the secret to doing this is… one must be pulled to find such a Master.

The ancient saying is this:  “When the Chela [student] is ready, the Master appears”.  The question is, what does “ready” mean? Above, it is expressed in the Bible this way:  …a living stone rejected by men but in the sight of God chosen and precious…

Of course not everyone believes in what I just shared.  I state it only because it has been my own experience.  There are a great many aspects to life that the West [generally speaking] simply does not care to explore.

Listening to God = the purpose of life

An Act of Brutality…revisited

Yesterday, I was shocked by the children of Senator and Mrs. Cruz, being ridiculed and savaged by a person named Ann Telnase, a cartoonist who makes fun of people for a living.

After venting my reaction, and a number of hours being with my reaction… and some time spent in meditation this morning, I want to apologize to my followers, and to anyone who might have read my tweets… for a reaction based on my own childhood, and not based on a higher perspective of understanding.

That is, my reaction was to try and shield the innocent children from what I perceived as an attack by a thoughtless, mean-spirited female, who used her talent to intentionally hurt children.  In my view this is what happened.  However, what would cause an adult female to want to harm children is the more important issue, I believe.  And that is what I want to try and diagnose.

There are, of course, adult human beings whose childhood was one that we might describe as ‘damaging’ to the psyche of the person as a child. My own childhood was such a childhood.   Fortunately, when I was 43 years of age,  I re-visited a core piece of repressed trauma [between my mother and myself], that caused my MIND to “protect” me by separating me from  my own emotionality from age 3 [when it occurred], to age 43, when I underwent Gestalt Psychotherapy.

It is the nature of psychology that it is created by a person’s MIND [which is not the brain], at the time of ones birth. That is, ones MIND creates a fully non-conscious self-view — which is composed of misperceptions taken-on by ones MIND… and these are drawn from the repressed emotions of ones mother [and father if he is present]?  And then these basic  misperceptions [which are virtually always negative],  are reinforced by significant events in ones childhood. These external events DO NOT CAUSE our problems, they merely reinforce and exacerbate our non-conscious self-view. This happens to each human being, but modern mental health discounts this… due to the mistaken notions of B.F. Skinner, in the early 1900s, in which he denied the existence of the MIND… due to his own fear of his own MIND. Explained in my book: Death of Psychology that nobody noticed.

The most difficult task of a parent is the non-conscious [which means unknown] impact the parent has on the MIND of his or her children?  Again, due to the ignorance of modern mental health regarding the psychology of the child, and how the MIND of the child misperceives events in the child’s early life, many children are on drugs… only because too many in mental health know nothing about the MIND?

My point is that Ms. Telnase, has a repressed psychology that allows her to use children as objects through which she projects her own repressed rage… in a misguided and delusional belief that she is being funny.  This is not unusual in people, and it manifests itself in many different ways.  In some black youth, it manifests in killing other black youth.  In Mexican youth it manifests in gangs where the most seriously deranged among them threaten other non-consciously enraged youth to savage people to “prove” their manhood.  This is the origin of youth with repressed self-loathing going around trying to knock out old people, to “prove” to themselves they possess some value.  Sad, but inevitable given what passes for “psychology” today.

In some ‘comedians,’ is a non-conscious need to project their own pain and self-loathing by mocking, belittling, and crucifying people who are silly enough to “think” that being maligned is funny.

In some people, this need to “vent” the negative energy being generated within themselves is manifested by them withdrawing from life, and pulling into themselves, and secretly self-punishing themselves in behaviors like homelessness, continually making mistakes, or hurting themselves.  Other people continually drink to excess, smoke too much, use drugs too much, and engage in behaviors that cause others to condemn them, or scorn them… which is a means of self-punishing themselves for intensely negative [and fully non-conscious] self-views held by their MINDs]… and once again… these are composed of negative misperceptions acquired by these people in early childhood.

All of this negativity can be corrected, or much of it could be, if the field of mental health could disengage itself from the mistaken notions of B.F. Skinner, and the oxymoron “behavioral psychology”.  But the practice of “psychology” is today an exercise in Intellectualism [or denial of the MIND and emotion], and it is so well entrenched, it looks like it will not change before this Age ends.

So, that is my rant for today.  An apology for getting angry, and an attempt to share something about the psychology of Man at the same time.  Being a good human being is not an easy thing to do.  And for those engaged in professions, or activities which are not kind, well, recognizing that what one does is harmful to others… might be a fist step in helping oneself?

The Difference Between Earth and Heaven

I enjoy watching the History channel, and the reports of those who believe in, and promote, the possibility that aliens from other planets may  have visited the Earth in the past.

What I wish I could share with these individuals is the difference between the physical universe, and the Astral region of Creation, where the various Heavens and Hells are located.

The nature of the psychological makeup of the scientist-type person, and those individuals who are Enlightened [more Spiritually evolved], is the amount of C’etc the Soul of an individual has been able to accumulate?  And, of course… here is where many readers will have to leave our discussion… because the idea that a person can experience the whole of Creation in one lifetime… is a mistaken notion based on one sentence in the Bible.

Hebrews 9:27  And just as it is appointed for man to die once, and after that comes judgment,

The problem with this verse is that this verse applies to each lifetime a Soul experiences. The verse is quite correct in that each lifetime a Soul experiences [and then dies]… is the end of that particular person, animal, foul, or insect:  But it is not the end of the Soul that used that particular body for that lifetime of experience. The Soul is an aspect of God, and as such, it is permanent… unless God determines otherwise… a most complex story.

And, at the end of every lifetime, the Soul [with the MIND that was attached to that Soul when all Souls entered Creation], is taken before a ‘judge,’ and the life just completed is evaluated by ones Soul and that judge.  And when that evaluation is complete, and before going to some Hell [for re-education of ones MIND], or some Heaven for rest and relaxation, ones Soul designs a new lifetime [or Fate Karma] for itself.

And, only rarely will a person remember any of his or her past lifetimes. So, what ones religion, family, or society believes… is pretty much what oneself will believe. In the East, many cultures believe completely in both the Law of Karma [Galatians 6:7], and Reincarnation. But in the West, we are told that these facts of Life are in conflict with the Bible. One must grow up Within oneself and obtain a level of Enlightenment to learn that the East is correct.

The point of this blog is that the Earth is where we Souls take on bodies with which to enjoy the “play” of the illusion of life.  And the Astral region of Creation [which is a separate vibrational dimension of Creation] is where the various Hells and Heavens are located.

Genesis 6:4 The Nephilim were on the earth in those days, and also afterward, when the sons of God came in to the daughters of man and they bore children to them. These were the mighty men who were of old, the men of renown.

The Bible clearly distinguishes between the “sons of God” and the Nephilim… which were people of Earth [and different from the “sons of God”].  We are left to speculate about how the people of Earth came to be?

The Astral region, and the Causal region of Creation are each composed of vibrational dimensions  that are invisible to Man, and different from that of the Earth.  These non-physical dimensions are peopled with Souls, many of whom have not [as yet] incarnated into the Earth plane.  Man, or people on Earth, will someday learn of these other dimensions of Creation, but until we do, the wise will accept the hints we are given in the Bible.

There is a great deal more to both the illusion of life, and the Reality of Life than what we human beings are taught.  I recommend each person cling to God, and at the same time question everything that come before oneself?  In 80 years, I have yet to discover anything that diminishes God in any way.

Mystical Insight… #3

From Light on Sant Mat, by Maharaj Charan Singh.

From Glossary: “Yog or Yoga … Literally means union: Esoterically, spiritual exercise; practice; meditation in the spiritual sense; any system which heads to or aims at the union of the soul with God.”

There are many forms of yoga, but only one form of yoga actually leads to “union with God”.  And that form is called Surat Shabd Yoga, or Yoga of the Soul and Sound Current.

And this takes us back to the basic structure of the whole of Man.  The whole of Man is composed of four simultaneously existing, and yet entirely separate vibrational dimensions, only one of which is capable of being known by ones brain [which is a most marvelous electro-physical muscle], that can perceive that which is physical, tangible, or is represented by an abstract term or terms that the brain can think about and hold in cerebral memory.

But… and here is the subtle existence of a reality that most people fail to realize:  That is… the physical brain, being confined to that which is physical, is incapable of perceiving the vibrational [non-physical] energies of the other three dimension of Man. These other vibrational dimensions of Man are:  The Lower MIND, representing the Astral region of Creation; the Higher MIND, representing the Causal region of Creation; and the Soul, which represents the Spiritual dimension of Life,or Reality… and is, in actuality, an aspect of the primordial Energy of existence.

So, the purpose of Yoga, at least Spiritual Yoga, is to find a way for one’s Soul to return to God.  And this ‘way’ is called Surat Shabd Yog, or Yoga of the Sound Current.  And ‘Sound Current’ refers to the primordial Energy of existence… which… Like Truth, Reality, and Spirituality, ONLY exist Within the Spiritual dimension –the vibrational nature of which cannot exist on any dimension other than the Spiritual dimension itself.

So, for a Soul to experience Spiritual Energy, that Soul must experience its own Energy, which ONLY exists in a dimension ONLY open to that which is PURE Spiritual Energy.   And this takes us to the war between “good and evil” that exists Within every human being…whether a person is aware of this war or not, it is active Within oneself.  And this ‘war’ is actually between the MIND that was attached to ones Soul when ones Soul first entered the Creation, and the Spiritual nature of ones Soul… that remains hidden from that Soul until that Soul has “earned” the right to regain awareness of its Spiritual nature — or put another way, until a Soul can rise above the illusions operated by the MIND.

And the process by which a Soul ‘earns’ the right to awaken to its own Energy is called the Law of Karma.  The Law of Karma is a unique design by God, which is the means by which every Soul is slowly working its way up the Ladder of Life, the end of which is full Enlightenment;  or an awakening to what I refer to as Neutral Spiritual Energy, or NSgy, my label for the primordial Energy of existence.

For example, the term “Soul” is an abstract term.  It is abstract because the term Soul [being a made-up word]  cannot convey what the Soul is, but only presents us with an abstract term that stands for, or points to the [supposed] existence of a Soul; which one believes to exist, or one is unsure if it exists [an agnostic view], or one does not believe the Soul exists [which is the view of an Atheist].

And each person “believes” in the Soul, or in God,  based on the Spiritual Evolution acquired by the Soul of that person… as a consequence of having engaged in, and successfully “completed” a certain amount of the Virtues of Life?  Or what I refer to as “C’etc,” which is pronounced “C_etcetera”. And C’etc stands for Conscience, Discretion, Knowledge, Acceptance and Empathetic Understanding. And these are my labels for the Virtues of Life, and other people have presented their own labels.

Regardless of the names for these Virtues, these Virtues represent the result of many lifetimes of doing Karma, and having “completed” certain aspects of Karma… which means obtaining an experiential Knowledge of certain bits of Truth, which means an understanding of both the Yin [female and emotional nature] and  Yang [the male and physical nature] of Life. Until one actually, that is, personally experiences… the Karma that adds up to Enlightenment, one does not possess Enlightenment.  My name for this process is the term ‘Esotransmutation‘.

Enlightenment is not an intellectual process, in other words, it is strictly experiential [involving the whole of Man], and it manifests to oneself via ones faculty of Intuition, which is an aspect of ones Spiritual dimension…which many people deny as existing.  As one acquires bits of Truth as a consequence of completing Karma, these bits of Truth are stored Within what I refer to as ‘Apapsyche,’ or The Operational Energy of ones Soul.  And they are made available to one via ones faculty of Intuition… when it is time for one to awaken to such Truth?

Mystical Insight… #3

Mystical Insights…. #2

Before we continue, I feel obliged to point out something rather important about this series that is most difficult to convey in words alone.  So, Let us begin this series with our first quote, which just happens to relate to my point about the Esoteric [or invisible] in Life.

Source:  Light on Sant Mat, Written by Mararaj Charan Singh.

There is a difference between mind and the mental apparatus.  Mind is not to be judged quantitatively. Accumulated knowledge or tendencies in previous lives come to a head and make a man a genius. Those who have come up from lower lives and have accumulated lower tendencies inherit inferior mental apparatus and become idiots.  The background in both cases is that of karmas.

This quote, to begin with, speaks of the simultaneous operations of multiple and separate dimensions of Man.  The “mind” of course refers to the MIND realm of Man, which is composed of two energies the brain cannot perceive.  But the phrase “mental apparatus” speaks of a combination of the operations of the MIND realm, and that of the physical brain… and something more, which is the separate operation of ones karma — and the operation of ones karma’s overrides everything else… but the process is 90% invisible.

Mind is not to be judged quantitatively.  This refers to a subtle point, wherein the “Accumulated knowledge or tendencies in previous lives come to a head and make a man a genius.  And this can ONLY happen over lifetimes, and cannot occur in just one lifetime.

And, to comprehend the above, one must maintain an awareness that the author of the quote is referring to the Law of Karma and Reincarnation.  Which means that  Accumulated knowledge must be accumulated over lifetimes, not just in one lifetime. So the assumption of the author is that the reader is aware of the fact we Souls live multiple lifetimes.  And that by engaging in, and eventually completing Karma, one benefits from such activity by gaining knowledge.

Those who have come up from lower lives and have accumulated lower tendencies inherit inferior mental apparatus and become idiots.  In this sentence, the speaker is telling us the major determinant in deciding the personality and character of a person, is the nature of the Karma that person has engaged in… and has not as yet completed.  This suggests, of course, that when we encounter a person who is lacking in qualities we refer to as competent, capable,  responsible or honest… [or acting like an idiot].. this is a person who has not [as yet] acquired such virtues by completing the Karma he/she has accumulated.

In other words, by assuming that the people we meet in life are living the [single lifetime Christians mistakenly believe that Man is limited to], they are are often confused by the lack of character and disturbed personality a person may possess… [since that person, like us, only has one life to live…what has that person done to be like he is]?

We then look at the parents of that person, or the environment of that person to try and comprehend what is causing that person’s personality or behavior?  It rarely occurs to most people that the person is simply working out the karma he or she has accumulated in one or more past lifetimes!

My point about the Esoteric [unseen and invisible] aspects of life is that LIFE must be studied as extending over many lifetimes, not just one lifetime. Both education and competent psychotherapy must take the Reality of Life into account if… they are to be useful and relevant to our lives?

Mystical Insights from the East..a series, #1

This series will consist of my quoting a passage from a book written by a mystic, and then attempting to explain what that passage means in regular or intellectual terms. This is an attempt, in other words, to explain that which cannot really be conveyed in words, but must be comprehended by the faculty of Intuition.

…Intuition being a faculty of ones Spiritual dimension, and Intuition is also an ability that results from ones Soul accumulating what I refer to as C’etc.

The reader would be justified in wondering who I imagine myself to be to suggest doing this?  Well, there is a certain amount of ego in my doing this, no doubt.  But, after 43 years trying to do this for myself.. I believe I can at least explain what I believe I have come to comprehend… regarding the difference between mysticism and intellectualism.

And, perhaps being aware of the danger of increasing my ego [or increasing my attachment to what my MIND believes itself capable of doing], will be somewhat mitigated by helping someone awaken to the mystical aspects of him/herself?   Or, perhaps my thinking this is merely my MIND feeding my brain Delusional Thinking [D-Think], thus causing my brain to rationalize doing what I am doing?

Have I lost the reader already?

Part of the problem with attempting to share the generally unknown mystical elements of Man with people… is that quite often people fail to comprehend what I am saying [which is my attempt to put into cognitive terms (brain-level thinking), phenomena that cannot be known by the physical brain].

You see [or perhaps you do not ‘see’], unless one has a working understanding of the whole of Man, and how the whole of Man is structured, people are caused to believe that being confused is normal… Rather than realizing that intellectual confusion is “normal,” but such confusion is a lack of ‘experiential insight’ [Spiritual Evolution] that prevents an individual from possessing the “Knowledge” with which to realize that Man is composed of four [simultaneously existing], vibrational dimensions, three of which are Esoteric, or invisible to the brain and physical senses.

You see, despite the statement that all men are created equal [being true when all Souls initially entered the Creation], after a single lifetime on Earth, this equality is no longer applicable to Souls that have not [as yet] experienced Earth. Of course the Energy of every Soul is the same.. however,  attached to each Soul is what I refer to as the Apapsyche [Operational Energy of the Soul], which allows a Soul to relate to the Creation  [what I refer to as the Apapsyche might well be what the mystics refer to as the ‘Higher MIND’]?  Although I do believe there is a subtle difference between the Apapsyche and what I have read regarding the Higher MIND.  In any case, the Energy of NSgy is distinguished by the term “Neutral”.

What do you know that is Neutral?  NSgy is, I believe, the primordial Energy of existence.  And neutral, at least to me, means nothing, nata, or not having a form that can be identified.  In the Bible, I believe the term “Spirit” refers to what I refer to as NSgy.  And in the Bible, it is said that one must relate to God in the “Spirit”. I believe this means that to commune with God, one’s Attn Aspect of Apapsyche must be located in ones Spiritual dimension.  And what I just wrote is quite meaningless to all but someone who is quite familiar with my work, my symbols, and my writing. Or, I imagine… someone who is Enlightened might be familiar with [and thus capable of Intuitively Knowing] the invisible aspects of Man.

Is it not reasonable that to speak of the unknown of Man, one would of necessity have to create or coin terms that would point to and stand for certain aspects of the unknown that the brain cannot perceive, and for which there are no current “abstract terms”?

Who do you know, for instance, that has met a Soul?  And yet, everyone you speak to will believe that he or she knows what a Soul is?  Such a belief is an example of Delusional Thinking, or D-Think which the MIND subtle [secretly] provides the brain… [research Dm=SI], without the brain realizing that it only “thinks” it knows what it knows.

Well, if this was useful at all… I am pleased.  This blog does indicate the nature of this series.  So, be forewarned.
