On Behalf of my 83rd Birthday… A TREATISE ON “MEDITATION”…

 

This Treatise had its beginning on March 17, 1972. That is 46 years ago, and that is the date I received “Initiation” from a Mystic… which is crucial to this treatise, but  that event, without  reader-preparation, would simply be confusing.

Over the last quarter century, I have written a great many books. What makes this strange is that in the eleventh grade, the only punctuation I used was a dash, like this ( – ).  Should I write, I wrote a single  run-on sentence punctuated here and there by a dash – between thoughts.  I attribute this to the fact that in the fifth grade, I could neither read, nor write. I am thankful to Mrs Cox, in the fifth grade, and Miss Ziebold in the eleventh grade. This is just my background.

What I discovered over the years is that Knowledge has nothing to do with information, the brain, or education.  Knowledge is entirely experiential, and it only takes place as a most complex process entirely  “Within” the MIND and Spiritual dimensions of each human being  We return to this concept shortly.

We think of life as sequential.  That is, events taking place as a series of straight lines [one after another].  Whereas, in Reality, Life is always now [like a stage] with past and future events waiting off-stage to make a sudden appearance, and we integrate these into now [“ignoring” the incongruity of the event].  In this sense, Shakespeare was correct.  What causes us to ignore the lack of congruence is the MIND, for whom time is irrelevant. It is carrying out its job of integrating the Law of Karma with what we believe is a linear life unfolding before us… as we view these seemingly “accidental” events as unrelated to us.

To comprehend the subject of “Meditation,” we must understand what this term means? And, it is difficult to understand the term “Meditation” because the key to the term Meditation is the term “Esoteric”.  Esoteric means ‘invisible’ to the brain and physical senses.  Or put another way, the key-principles of Meditation involve  the “Attention” faculty of Intuition, and  that of “Concentration,” both of which are operations of the Soul… and people mistakenly “think” they know what the Soul is? How many of you have seen a Soul?  And to think one knows what the Soul is, when one has no idea what the Soul is… is a common form of Delusional Thinking, which is virtually ignored in Western education.

Mankind therefore engages in a subtle form of Delusional Thinking, which is the MIND feeding Delusional Thinking to the Left-Hemisphere of the brain, and we do not realize this is taking place continually. The fact the MIND can feed Delusional Thinking [or D-Think] to oneself, and one is unaware that what one is thinking is what one’s MIND wants one to think… is a bitter pill to swallow for the Ego of Man.  So, we ignore it, and we deny it can even happen.  And the MIND counts on [and helps] us  deny this phenomenon.

So, now we have briefly set the stage, so to speak, let us discuss the practice of Meditation?  We begin with discussing the “purpose” of Meditation?  Meditation is a crucial part of the teaching of every Saint or Mystic that has been sent into the Earth plane by God… And the reason Meditation is so important is that Meditation is the ONLY way for the Soul to begin to stop the leeching of the Spirituality of the Soul by the MIND that is attached to the Soul.

How does the MIND “create” Karma?  It takes a bit of the Spiritual Energy of the Soul and “creates” an event for the Soul to vicariously experience… Vicarious in the since that it is the Soul’s own Energy that creates and sustains that event.  And then the MIND stores that event in its memory as Karma.  And, over many lifetimes, that storehouse of memory is filled with what we call “Attachments”. The attachment we speak of is the Spiritual Energy of the Soul that is dissociated and held in all that Karma.

This is the reason the Mystic speaks of the Soul being a “slave” to the Karma held within the MIND.  Although it is the experiencing of this Karma that will eventually give we Souls experiential understanding…  it must be converted from Karmic experience into Knowledge, and Truth.  And that takes place Within us at levels of which we are unaware.

Meditation involves Attention, Concentration, and Acceptance… although the Acceptance part is rarely discussed. Acceptance means forgiving oneself for having spent ones own Spiritual Energy on pleasures of the Illusion.  Both the positive and the negative experiences we have participated in  have been at the expense of our own Spirituality.  In other words, we used our own Spiritual Energy to fulfill  our “desires” for these experiences of the Creation.  And when a Soul awakens to this FACT, it most generally creates a great deal of grief, sorrow, and humiliation.  And we are ashamed, but that is Ego.  This subtly begins the awakening process of “seeing” the difference between the Reality of God, and the Illusion, which we  believed to be real and important. 

Grief is the magic eraser of  Karma, and the more a person can grieve, the quicker that person converts Karma into Knowledge.  Humility only comes from humiliation. So, rather than try and hide from humiliation, embrace it deep within yourself.  See it as a friend, and as a way to clean out the storerooms of Karma from “Within” oneself.

The MIND does not appreciate, nor does it initially support nor encourage this transformation by the  Soul.  In fact, the MIND does everything in its power to dissuade the Soul from engaging in Meditation.  It attempts to feed D-Think to one during Meditation.  It will also bring up all kinds of memories from deep within itself, and it displays these on a screen during one’s Meditation.  This is the reason the Mystic tells us to do both Simran [or repeating of the holy names], and dhyan [which is focusing on the Mystic that Initiated one’s Soul]. And one must keep ones full Attention fixed in the eye-center, resisting the temptation to look either left or right, up or down.

And this is Meditation. An attempt by a Soul to focus all its Energy at the eye center, at the forehead, and to exclude everything else.  And this is a very long and difficult process, and it takes a great deal of dedication, desire, intention, and surrender of one’s Ego.  And the MIND will be relentless in its offering of distractions in various forms:  One’s work, children, politics, pains, aches, and any resentments the MIND can stir up during the day… are stored and presented during Meditation.   A favorite of my own MIND is providing me flashes of pictures of the movie I saw the day or evening before.  I personally sit for meditation between 2 and 3 a.m.  And I have done that every day for the last 46 years.  And, this morning was not unlike any other morning… except that now, I am much more aware of how relentless my MIND is in its attempt to interject itself into my Meditation.  The statement of Christ, “If thine eye be single, they whole body shall be full of light,” is a reminder that what Mediation needs to be is one-pointed Attention of all one’s Concentration. This intensity is quite tiring.

Most Mystics, or Masters, remind us of just how difficult Meditation is, and they know this because every Soul must go through the same process.  There is only one Path back Home to God, the Father of we Souls.  I hope my sharing this bit about Meditation has been helpful.

Peace, Brother James, May, 2018

A Peculiar Thing About Truth…

Although it is said that Truth does not exist… that thought is untrue.

Truth does exist,, but it exists in a dimension that is not physical, and thus, not available to that part of Man that is associated with the physical brain.

So, that explains the reason philosophers have not found the Truth. That is, they… being confined to the Left-Hemisphere of the brain, and thinking, do not make use of the ONLY part of Man that can ‘experience’ the Truth… which is the faculty of Intuition, which is a part of the Soul, which is purely Spiritual.

That which enables a person to gain access to the faculty of Intuition is the Soul, which depends upon the level of Consciousness it has acquired… by completing Karma?  Now, if you do not believe in the Law of Karma, or that you possess a Soul, well then, how likely is it you will let go of thinking long enough to experience your faculty of Intuition?

Experiential awareness of ones Spirituality is limited to those who, first of all, believe in God.  Secondly, if you stand still with your belief in God, and do not make use of it to climb up the Ladder of Life, then you do not reach the level where Intuition is actively operating.   So, a passive Soul pretty much remains at a level where the MIND controls what one thinks and believes?

Unfortunately, Intuition can be used, but only if one “believes” it exists.  If one prefers use of the brain, then one is allowed to make use of the brain, and that results in one being unaware of the existence of Intuition, Spirituality, and, of course, Truth.  This is the condition I refer to as the Malady of Intellectualism [or a person whose fear of the unknown causes that person to cling to the brain and thinking]… which is a condition brought on by a lack of Faith… which is the natural result of an immature Soul.

So, Truth most definitely exists, but it only exists to those whose Souls have climbed up the Ladder of Life to the point where they have contacted Intuition, which then enables them to “experience” bits of Truth.  Alas, only those people who have reached this level of the Ladder of Life can experience Truth.  So, it is not possible to share one’s bit of Truth with anyone whose Soul has not climbed the Ladder of Life to the point where they can experience Intuition.

And, this is just the  way Life is structured, which fits the Law of Karma, and we Souls have as much time as we need to awaken to this Reality…contrary to what we have been told.  But once a Soul discovers this, it become anxious to leave the cycle of birth and death as soon as it can do so?

What do I Mean When I Say “The Soul Has no Race”?

I am speaking of the fact that the Soul is immortal, and that we Souls have as many lifetimes as we need to fulfill the Purpose of Life?

In other words, the external form which the Energy of the Soul enlivens… can, as the Eastern Mystics tell us, run the full spectrum of the “Wheel of Eighty-Four”… and this phrase refers to the 8,400,000 different species of life forms a Soul can incarnate into upon the Earth plane.  One life form at a time.

In the West, generally speaking, we believe two things we are told… which are not true.  One is that the Soul only has one life to live.  And the other thing is that Man alone has a Soul.  Both things are mistaken beliefs by people who have not made a study of Mysticism, or the Fifth Century period of the Popes and Catholicism.

Both Reincarnation and the True story about the role of Spirituality in the life of Man were written out of [removed] from the Bible [or an attempt to do so was made] in, and around the Firth Century A.D. The reason?  Desire for power, ego, greed, and ignorance.

The fact is… every living organism has a Soul.  And the ONLY REAL part of everything that is alive is the Soul [which is immortal], and the Soul has a MIND attached to it [which remains with it until that Soul leaves the cycle of birth and death forever].  The MIND enables  each Soul  to fully and completely explore and experience everything the Creation has to offer?

So, the idea that the Soul [which is an aspect of the Energy of God, and is immortal] has a race, just because it happens to be in a particular physical form this lifetime is sheer nonsense, coupled with ignorance.  The Soul [and this means every Soul] is composed of Neutral Spiritual Energy, or NSgy.

Open Letter to Christians United For Israel… RE: David’s Temple #3

Many years ago, Carl Jung used the term Synchronicity to apply to what he noticed as several people awakening to the same bit of Truth in diverse locations.   What he noticed was the fact that Truth is universally available all the time, and those awakening to it possess Souls that are “ready” to awaken to a particular bit of Truth.

Well, given the above, it is likely others, beside myself, may have awakened to a bit of Truth subtly offered within the presentation I watched on YouTube the other day?  And let me try to explain…

The host of the program [Watchman Episode #3], dealing with the recent discovery of King David’s Temple, in Jerusalem, was listening to his guide, who pointed out that a massive pond was located at the base of a very high stone staircase, going up several hundred feet.  The guide said that those who visited the Temple on certain times of the year  would likely be in the thousands, and that they were required to “cleanse” themselves before climbing the long stairway…

Well, that triggered something I had been writing in my new book,  just the day before.  That is, the fact that the Soul, before leaving the cycle of birth and death in and out of the Earth plane, would have to first spend a long time time clearing Karmic accounts that the MIND of that Soul had acquired over lifetimes. In other words, before the Soul could begin its “climb” up the Spiritual ladder, its MIND would have to be purged [cleansed] of enough Karmic debt [attachment] to allow the Soul to enter the Astral Region [thought to be the first Spiritual region by many].

A worldly example of this would be someone desiring to climb a mountain, and demanding that he be allowed to carry all his belongings with him…

And the method of cleansing is via “a specific Meditation given to certain Souls who are determined by God to be ready”.  And this bit of Knowledge is only known by those who have been exposed to Eastern Mysticism in some way, or whose Souls are Enlightened enough to recognize the Mystical “cleansing process” that begins with “special Meditation,” which is a necessary step in the Soul’s path back to God.

The MIND, in other words, in using the Soul’s Energy to create phenomena, subtly obligates the Soul to that phenomena.  So, the Soul must divest itself of the “attachments” to that phenomena, before it can leave the Earth Plane.

In other words, the pond, stairs, and ritual of cleansing are all symbolic of the  SPIRITUAL PROCESS REQUIRED OF EVERY SOUL THAT SEEKS TO LEAVE THE CYCLE OF BIRTH AND DEATH FOREVER.  And this “process” or Spiritual Practice was obviously KNOWN BY KING DAVID. Which means that Kind David knew of “the one universal method every Soul must use to return to God”.

My interpretation, of course, is not an intellectual one, but is based on over 40 years “meditation,” of a special nature.  And, because the symbols explained in the presentation were so powerful, I felt obligated to share what I saw in them.

IRREDEEMABLE…?

 

irredeemable | ˌi(r)rəˈdēməb(ə)l |
adjective
1 not able to be saved, improved, or corrected: so many irredeemable mistakes have been made.

So, who helps the irredeemable? That is, if the Soul is immortal, as Mystics suggest… Are we to conclude that some Souls are irredeemable, and thus forever lost? Such as the Souls that go to the Lake of Fire at the time of Armageddon?
My question is… Who helps the irredeemable Souls?

Wanted: Therapist for Irredeemable Souls.

Redeem:
redeem | rəˈdēm |
verb [with object]
1 compensate for the faults or bad aspects of (something): a disappointing debate redeemed only by an outstanding speech | (as adjective redeeming) : the splendid views are the one redeeming feature of the center.
• (redeem oneself) do something that compensates for poor past performance or behavior: they redeemed themselves in the playoffs by pushing the Detroit Red Wings to a seventh and deciding game.
• (of a person) atone or make amends for (error or evil): the thief on the cross who by a single act redeemed a life of evil.
• save (someone) from sin, error, or evil: he was a sinner, redeemed by the grace of God.
Definition from my Acorn Dictionary

Redeemed by the Grace of God…?
Can one put a coat of paint over a corrupt form, and erase the corruption underneath the paint? Not very likely, is it? More likely, the paint will be corrupted by what it seeks to mask?
What is “the grace of God”? What does this mean?

For me, “the Grace of God” means “permission from God to change, and in changing, Redeem [or remove the corruption that was taken on by one’s Soul], and is inherent in the nature of the duality of Creation.
This would mean… I believe…That the immortality of the Soul cannot actually be sullied, but any form it animates is easily pulled into corruption by the illusion of Creation, whose reality is always illusory, and thus false.

So, are we missing an element of irredeemability that should suggest that even the seemingly irredeemable Soul can be redeemed if… The lost Soul is helped to rekindle the light that is inherent in that Soul?
I believe the secret of irredeemability is to discover the True nature of the Soul?

CONSIDERING THE CONCEPT: “GOD IS WITHIN YOU”?

First of all, what does this old saying mean, exactly?

Many people assume they know what this familiar phrase means…  But do they? Quite likely, the same people who “think” they know what the Souls is,  are the same people who assume they know that God is?  Have you ever seen a Soul? Just curious?

Do people really know that this phrase referring to God being “Within Man” is a Mystical message given to Man by Mystics?  …A Mystical message?  A Mystic, by the way, is someone who “listens to God”.  Now, do you know what this means?  How in the world does a person “listen to God”?  Certainly not by use of ones physical ears, right?

Well, oddly enough… Listening to God makes use of the same part of Man that must be used in order to awaken to the  fact that God exists “Within” oneself. And, that “part” of Man is known as “Intuition“.   Alas, unfortunately, the term Intuition stands for something that is not taught in education  today.  Can you guess why it is not taught in education?   The reason Intuition is not taught in edlucation is that those who are naturally drawn to teaching are people who are  found of  the brain and thinking, and  thinking is a physical exercise, using this muscle, we call the brain.

human-brain-8265651However, the brain is incapable of perceiving the Energy of the Spiritual dimension of Man, where Intuition resides.  To diagram the Whole of Man, we might do this:

WholeIn this sketch, we have the physical man with brain, then the oval of the Lower MIND [Astral region], the Higher MIND {Causal region], then the Soul, or Spiritual dimension of Man.  Man is composed of all four which exist simultaneously in the Whole Human Being.  By the way, the combined Astral and Causal regions represent the MIND of Man.

Now, take the  concept of Intuition, and imagine it within the circle marked Soul, and this then is the reason… if your Attention is in your Brain [black square], it cannot be focused in Intuition operating out of the Soul. You can “think” or you can KNOW.  But it is one or the other.

The fact is, it is not a “choice” a person has whether or not to make use of one’s faculty of Intuition?  Unless your Soul contains a sufficient amount of the Virtues of Life [which I refer to by use of the symbol “C’etc” (pronounced “C_etcetera”)] you will not be able to make use of your Intuition to “listen to God,” or to “see” and “hear” bits  of Spiritual Truth.   So, although it is True that “God is Within Man,” it is not possible to possess experiential proof of this until one’s Souls possesses a sufficient amount of C’etc to enable it to make use of your faculty of Intuition, which enables you [your  Conscious Awareness] to both “see” and to “hear” the bits of Truth which ONLY exist Within your Self.

This sadly means that not every Soul is “ready” to “see” or “hear” Truth.

Peace, Brother James

 

Why we in the West fail to realize the Reason some people deny God, while other people Love God?

And, before we begin  this serious topic — ponder this question:  Is it possible to actually love someone one has never met?  arrow 11a

0 line

As strange as it might seem…and in spite of the fact that a great many people mistakenly believe that because the SOULS of people are the same Spiritually… [ or “Within” a person], then people should also “be” the same…externally?  The fact is… mankind represents two [2] distinctly different types of people.  One type I  refer to as “Intelack,” and the other type I refer to as Enlightened.

The problem we have [particularly in Western cultures]  is a problem of improper education, which is the natural result of institutions being run by the most intellectual type people… rather than run by the most Enlightened type individuals.  And, the question then becomes:  What is the difference between an intellectual type person and an Enlightened type person?  The difference is the intellectual is run by his/her MIND, and thus denies God.

To begin to discuss this hugely important topic, we must first agree on some basic principles of Life? Does a carrot have a Soul?  How you answer this basic question will determine whether you are a friend of Truth, or a defender of “let’s pretend”!  And while on this question, how about a Tree, a dog, a cat,  a snake, or a cell?  Do these life-forms have Souls? And are all Souls the same?

A A Soul is an aspect of God, and thus, the Soul contains the same Energy as that of God, which is invisible to the physical senses of Man.

The simple fact is… every living thing has a Soul. It is the Soul that provides “life” to  every living thing in the Creation; from cell to Man.

Now a second important question:  How many lifetimes does a Soul have in which to accomplish the Purpose of Life?  The Purpose of Life is to explore and experience all the ways that Neutral Spiritual Energy can manifest itself in the Creation?  And to do this, the Soul needed to take-on a MIND, which God provided each Soul as we entered the Creation.

Final question?  It it likely that a Soul that has not acquired Enlightenment would be able to resist a MIND whose purpose is to insure that the Soul remain somewhat like a slave to the desires of the MIND, until that Soul is capable of acquiring sufficient Consciousness to rise above the MIND?

Answer:  No, the Soul of an Intelack type person remains subject to the dictates of the MIND, which views the Energy of God as the “unknown,” and thus, the [Lower] MIND remains  fearful of the invisible Energy of God.

And,  since the only part of Man that has seen God is the Soul of Man, only the Enlightened Soul can manifest its Love of God.
