A Short Essay
Brother James, Lo_G
[Lo_G means Lover of God]
Let us begin at the beginning…
In the beginning there was, as they say… A Void. But was this void truly a void [meaning that there was nothing there], or was there something there… but it’s nature was such that it gave the appearance of being nothing, and therefore, a void?
I believe that what is referred to as a void is, in fact, the primordial energy of existence, and it appeared as “nothing” because it was ‘Neutral Spiritual Energy,’ or NSgy, for short. And if you consider the term “Neutral,” one of its characteristics is a lack of resistance. That is, being neutral, it has nothing for matter to butt up against, which is necessary for friction to occur, which is what we often see. That is, the result of a collision of otherwise invisible elements.
So, for me, that primordial energy is what is called the Void. And although the Void cannot be seen, it does have a Sound to it…and this Sound has the name “Word”. And I say this because the Bible itself says that “in the beginning, was the Void,” or, as the Bible also says… In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God. and the Word was God.
Does this mean that God was in the Void, or perhaps comprised the Void? And perhaps this also means that God. although appearing like a Void [being invisible], could be identified as a special ‘Word”?
Now, what if that special “Word” was also called by the name Spirituality? And Spirituality, which is invisible to the physical senses, is the operational Energy of God, and thus Spirituality [and perhaps even Reality] can be KNOWN… but only by experiencing what is referred to as the “Word”? And since this Word cannot [apparently] be heard by ones physical ears, how does one go about hearing this “Word”?
What do the mystics say about this question?
The mystics tell us that a part of Man is capable of hearing this Word [but not with ones physical ears]. They say one must develop ones Astral body hearing, and this then will enable one to “hear” the “Word”. And they say this can be accomplished by specific meditation designed to accomplish this task. But they also tell us that to learn this form of meditation may take several lifetimes.
When the mystics speak of the Astral body, they are referring to the Lower MIND Within Man that represents the Astral region of Creation. The Higher MIND represents the Causal region of Creation, and these two are spoken of in the singular as the MIND of Man [which modern mental health virtually ignores] due to the mistaken beliefs of B. F. Skinner, whose fear of his own MIND, in the early 1900s, caused him to deny the MIND of Man, and to create the oxymoron ‘behavioral psychology’.
___________Or the insane notion that the MIND-level conflicts of mental illness can be treated by denying the MIND of Man, and instead, focusing on the behavior of Man. Of course our behaviors are the means by which our MINDs mask and hide what is causing our behaviors. So BS&bp [Behavioral Science and the oxymoron ‘behavioral psychology’] is designed to fail mankind. The level of this failure is demonstrated in the high rates of suicide among Veterans, and the rapid rise of sexually conflicted individuals in America.________
To return to our discussion of the four simultaneously existing, and yet entirely separate dimensions of Man… it is of great value to remind ourselves that three of the four dimensions of Man are invisible to the brain and physical senses.
For those individuals who are confined to, or limited to the use of their brains and thinking… the idea of the three dimensions of Man that the brain cannot perceive just never enters their thoughts. I refer to this type person as an Intelack type person. Or a Soul that has not [as yet] acquired enough “C’etc” to enable it to resist the negative desires of the MIND… or to readily perceive evil.
________ The symbol “C’etc” is pronounced C_etcetera, and it is the symbol for my terms for the Virtues of Life: Conscience, Discretion, Knowledge, Acceptance and Empathetic Understanding. Empathetic Understanding suggests empathy, insight, and Intuition, or the Esoteric aspects of an Esoteric Knowledge Man is slowly acquiring by “completing” Karma over many, many lifetimes. Again, people in the West have a choice to make: Either believe that Man only has one time to live and deny three-quarters of the Reality of Man, and Life… or believe Man has as many lifetimes as is required to achieve the C’etc necessary to escape the illusion of Life? One choice keeps one stuck in the illusion, and the other makes one a target of the Intelack people in the world.
Once a Soul incarnates into the Earth plane, regardless what form ones Soul in using, that Soul has begun to collect Karma, and as this Karma grows, ones choice [or limited free-will] is diminished considerably, simply because the Karma one has created demands to be addressed. And the “completion” of this Karma is the Purpose of Life… so it naturally takes precedence over ones design of the Fate Karma ones Soul designs for each lifetime.
There is nothing simple nor easy in the life of any Soul on this Earth plane. And the foregoing introduces three new concepts to the normal person in the West. One is the Astral body of Man; the second concept is that one can “learn” to hear via ones Astral body; and the third concept is that one has more than one lifetime in which to accomplish fulfilling the Purpose of Life.
Would it not be interesting to discover that the primary difference between East and West is whether one believes in Reincarnation or not? Some scholars believe that one or more Popes removed the verses in the Bible that obviously mention the Law of Karma [as ye sow, so shall ye reap], and Reincarnation [which, oddly enough Hebrews 9:27 refers to obliquely… although it has been misinterpreted differently], since perhaps around the fifth century, or some 500 years after the birth of Jesus.
The net effect of this is that the West tends to believe that Man only has one lifetime in which to achieve perfection, while the East believes that Man has as many lifetimes as needed to achieve the Purpose of Life. Of course the only importance to this is what do you believe? Since it is your individual Soul that must acquire the Knowledge to enable it to rise above the illusion of Life? There is no collective salvation or judgement, there is only individual judgement of the individual Soul.
It might be helpful, for those who are not sure about all of this, for me to mention that every living thing has a Soul. The tree, the donkey, Man, and so forth. Therefore, if your Soul was born as a tree… [and your Soul only has one lifetime to live…], is that your only opportunity to acquire perfection as a human being?
Or, is the Eastern view of Reincarnation a more reasonable [and loving] thing for God to do? I have always believed that the Eastern view of Reincarnation is much more God-like that the one-life to live nonsense of Christianity based on one misinterpreted verse in the Bible:
Hebrews 9:27. And as it is appointed unto men once to die, but after this the judgment:
And the East has no complaint regarding this verse, only a much different interpretation. At the end of each lifetime ones Soul [with MIND attached] goes before a judge, and ones Soul goes over how well it did working through the Fate Karma it designed for its just concluded lifetime.
Then. before ones Soul goes to either some Hell for re-education of its MIND, or some Heaven for rest and relaxation, ones Soul designs a new Fate Karma for its next lifetime, which is the natural way all Souls are slowly climbing up the Ladder of Life.
—————– Back to the concept of meditation. Like virtually everything in the West, the dominance of the Left-Hemisphere of the brain [because it is what the MIND uses to communicate its Delusional Thinking to the brain], and thus, we naturally develop a dependence upon the Left-Hemisphere of the brain. And, this then becomes the automatic part of the brain we use to address anything that is new, unusual, or unknown in our lives.
And this tendency is exacerbated by our system of education, and those who tend to gravitate toward teaching [or its Intellectualism], which, in the wrong hands, becomes a subtle form of CONTROL… and a denial of, mocking of, and a punishing of… the natural Intuition of Enlightened children. This is the unstated purpose of Common Core, by the way.
There are children who are ‘naturally’ Enlightened individuals when born. And in the West, with its stance on “one life to live,” the idea that a child can be born with far more Enlightenment than its parents is difficult to comprehend. Because… without a prior opportunity to ‘earn” this Enlightenment, possessing it would mean that God allows inequality in Souls and their “one live to live.” So, those who buy into the “one life to live” idea have no other choice than to deny the Enlightenment of the child before them. With one life to live… it is virtually impossible for any child to be born already in more possession of Spirituality than his or her parents.
And the scorn, mocking, ridicule and physical pain imposed upon Enlightened children by fearful parents and teachers is substantial. But let us praise those Popes whose need for control over mankind caused them to misinterpret the principle laws of God. Sorry, I can’t praise ignorance and fear.
But if you doubt me in this… please read
Revelation (2 verses)
17:5 – And upon her forehead was a name written, MYSTERY, BABYLON THE GREAT, THE MOTHER OF HARLOTS AND ABOMINATIONS OF THE EARTH.
Not many in the world realize that this reference to Babylon the Great is referring to the Papacy, and ultimately to Rome, the city of seven hills. And who is the greatest supporter of the Antichrist? It is the False Prophet, which is the last Pope [which happens to be the present Pope].
Man proposes, and God disposes… is as true now as it has ever been. How much mankind honors those who expound upon what is and what is not the Word of God… when such people have no idea what God is, or where God is? And these same people teach that all it takes to achieve perfection is to say [after a life of crime, filth, and evil] “I’m sorry”.
God is not mocked, nor is His Law of Karma. As one sows, so shall one reap. And this Law is an Absolute Law. How is it possible to reap what one has sown, if one is forgiven ones sin by simply saying “I’m sorry”?
Yes, God does forgive we Souls… and this is precisely the reason he Created the many Hells on the Astral region of Creation. And by providing us Reincarnation, so that we can experience the Yin side of the Yang [action] Karma we sowed. By doing evil, and then receiving the fruit of such evil oneself… one “learns” all one can KNOW of that evil. And how in goodness sake can this be accomplished in one lifetime as a tree, a horse, or a frog? Or in one lifetime as a human being for that matter?
Reincarnation is simply a fact of Life, and it is the necessary sister of the Law of Karma. Life is not a theoretical proposition, nor is it one-sided. Nor is it part experience and part imagination. Life is an opportunity for we Souls to struggle our way up the Ladder of Life. And in doing so, we make possible the many transitions that our Souls must make in its journey toward perfection. Our Souls slowly rise in experiential Knowledge born of sowing and reaping the necessary Karma of Life, which was Created for we Souls by God, whose NSgy provided Knowledge of what was needed?
I trust this was helpful in explaining just a bit about the fact of Reincarnation, and how it is an integral part of Life?
