WHAT IS THIS LIFE SO FULL OF CARE, WE HAVE NO TIME, TO STAND AND TO STARE……. …….AND THEN WE DIE?

WHAT IS THIS LIFE SO FULL OF CARE, WE HAVE NO TIME, TO STAND

AND TO STARE…….

…….AND THEN WE DIE?

Often, amid a dripping forest of rain-drenched, shiny umbrellas, the priest, in sonorous tones, informs the mourners that we are born with nothing and we die with nothing. Alternatively, amid gales of laughter at stating the seemingly obvious, a jolly wag will remind us that we can’t take it with us when we “Snuff it”

 

In actual fact, both, the priest and the jolly wag have got it wrong. Of course, you can’t take material things with you. What would you do with them even if you could? But contrary to what many people believe, the important, lasting things in our lives are not material, and so we do take them with us. But before we look at these non-physical possessions let’s look at death (as most people are taught to regard it). Then we will look at death in the context of evolving life force and reincarnation.

 

The sketchy knowledge many people have about ‘after-death’ is further confused and distorted by their ignorance about ‘before-birth’. The teachers of established Christianity teach their many followers that one newly born baby equates with one brand-new innocent soul. When this baby grows to adulthood its enquiring mind may have difficulty in accepting these Christian teachings, for example, that we are all born with brand-new souls, to live one physical life each, and then to die. At some stage, after our death, our Creator will judge each of us. Gratefully, what is supposed to happen next to unforgiven sinners, becomes less menacing, and instead, more vagueness as each century passes by.

 

To accept these teachings, one of the difficulties to be faced by the enquiring mind is the question of; on what basis will our Creator judge us? This is a fair question when we observe that many people appear to have life loaded against them from start to finish. Conversely, for other people, life appears to be, ”A bed of roses” from start to finish. An alternative view of the same teachings suggests that none of us was given any choice about being born in the first place. How could our Creator judge with equal fairness, the sin of a nuclear physicist, and the sin of a pre-historic Homo-Sapiens Caveman? Again these are not trivial questions because according to those teachings, every soul ever created will be waiting to be judged. Another question enquirers might ask is where is this mixture of countless souls that have lived their one physical life apiece and then died? What are they doing now?

 

No doubt the sincere teachers of Christianity have answers to these questions, interspersed with the traditional demands, that their followers have unquestioning faith. Our concern is not for how teachers or followers choose to use their freewill. Our concern is for the negative effect on the outlook of the individual. If a respected teacher has encouraged a follower to choose faith instead of knowledge, then for the follower, ignorance equates with loyalty to the teachings. But for the individual, ignorance also equates with fear of the unknown. Only logical knowledge can transform the unknown into the known. This applies both, to followers and to non-followers of religions. So let us now try to replace with knowledge, the fear of death, and of the unknown, that needlessly blights the lives of so many people. To understand death and thus to lose the fear of death, we must first understand the purpose of life. This is made more difficult when we are only able to regard life from our limited, individual points of view.

When we are prepared to burst through those limits we will then replace our fears with the self-confidence gained from true knowledge.

 

In our articles and books we have offered our readers an alternative scenario to those offered by eastern and western religions. To build that scenario we have included our belief that our Creator is part of an ongoing process that creates “Creators”. Readily we have admitted that we don’t yet comprehend how the process started. As part of a process our Creator’s role would be to ensure the continuity of the process. For this reason our scenario is built around what we believe is our Creator’s viewpoint instead of the limited viewpoint of we, the creations of our Creator.

 

Just like any process here on Earth, if the intended result is to be achieved, once started the process must run its course without interference. Logically this means that our Creator would simply start, monitor and supply the energy needs of the process. It also means that the intended products of the process are more Creators who will continue the process. We realise that this talk of process seems unfeeling, and a far cry from the various traditional, blurred, unthinking pictures we are offered of our relationship to our Creator.

 

It only seems that way until we use thought instead of emotion without thought. For example, when would-be parents long to have a child to love and cherish, they deliberately start a process with an intended result. Carefully they monitor the process and supply all energy needs. But to the parents, a vital part of the process is also to ensure that the child feel fully included in the love the parents have for each other.

 

This has to apply to each child equally, no matter how large the family grows. At first the child must be protected and guided, but as it grows older the parents allow the child to exercise its intelligence and freewill. The child will make mistakes and hopefully will learn from those mistakes. At that stage the parents know it is wise not to interfere with the learning process. Instead the parents set an example of harmonious living that the child will eventually learn is the best and only way to live.

 

Once again, the learning speed is different for every child. The more children in the family, the longer it will take for the entire family to learn the lesson of harmony and balance. It will take longer because the faster learners will have to develop patience and understanding for the disharmony caused by the thoughtless and selfish actions of the slower learners. At no stage will the parents think of their children as a crowd, even though at first the children might think of each other in that way.

 

The parents will always regard each child (slow or fast learner) as a unique, incomparable, very special individual in his or her own right. This parental love and respect for each child continues as each child evolves towards and achieves adulthood and equality with the parents. The mutual exchange of love and respect continues long after the child has achieved adult, non-dependence on the parents. Then it is the individual members of the now adult family that individually choose to continue the process. In our example, the parents represent the perfectly blended she and he of our Creator’s mind. Obviously each unique, incomparable, family member represents each member of a family called mankind. Each human being is destined to grow from childhood dependence to adult independence. This is the ongoing, warm, loving process that creates Creators out of people like you and me. Whilst our self-doubts and fear-filled minds need our Creator as a parental figure, we will always be part of our Creator. When we individually conquer our fears and self-doubts, our courage will allow us to fully comprehend our true and glorious adult destiny. But nowhere, in the process we have described, is there room for death. This can only mean that mankind has misunderstood the true meaning of death. So now let’s find out why.

 

One of the reasons is that, most of us get fixed ideas and fixed images of self and of those around us, as in this example at our place of work. For years our fixed image of Joe, the maintenance man, has been that of an oil-stained, blue boiler suit, a pair of greasy wellington boots, and a scruffy old cap and scarf that covers but cannot conceal Joe’s silver hair and his wry, fatalistic grin. For years we all shared this image of Joe, until one day when Joe invited us all to his daughter’s wedding. Then, as we all turned in our pews to watch the entrance of the bride, we all received a similar mental shock. Why were we shocked? Because suddenly we all realised that the elegantly dressed, distinguished stranger, proudly leading the bride, was our old Joe!

 

In exactly the same way, we receive a sudden mental shock when a loved one dies. Our fixed image of the loved one includes the loved one’s animated with life physical body; no matter how old or worn out with illness it may be. The mental shock stems from the sharp reminder that our eyes only ever saw the visible part of our now departed beloved. Our sense of loss is a different matter altogether.

 

Our fixed image of our beloved was so familiar we never even thought about it. The shattered image then compels us to think of our beloved in an unfamiliar and pain-filled way. It is pain-filled because now, just when we need accurate knowledge to reassure us as to the whereabouts of our beloved, who can we ask? In the same way we take our own physical existence for granted, and so we never think beyond our physical existence. Often the reason why we avoid thinking about these questions is because we don’t know what to think or what to believe. This is when fear of death enters the scene. So now we must look at what many fearfully think of as death, from our Creator’s wider (parental) point of view.

 

In our ‘process of Creators’ scenario our Creator evolved from childhood to adulthood, and is now the parent of children.  From our Creator’s viewpoint, all of those children are fully expected to evolve and grow in intelligence to our Creator’s idea of adulthood. Not just the brightest children, all are special and unique, and each will learn in his or her, own timing. Now let’s look at the children’s progress so far.

 

In a busy household the nursery is like a different world, a world in which to feel safe and secure. Just like earlier, in the womb, in the nursery all needs are supplied without needing the conscious thought of the infants, because mother does the thinking. In that sense mother is part of the process that creates Creators. The womb and nursery represents both, the physical universe, and the astral vortex of reducing power-levels of incoming energy that creates our universe. The beloved infants represent every trace of life force that has yet to evolve to the, conscious, aware, me, intelligence level, (to the human level). The mother is Mother Nature, whose intelligence thinks for the beloved infants throughout the lower astral power-levels and the physical universe. In the nursery the infants frequently sleep, but when awake, must be protected from each other. In this sense the physical body is each infant’s protection. If the body is irreparably damaged, the beloved infant slips into the peace of astral sleep until a new physical body is available. The explanations in this chapter are relevant to our theme, learning to lose the fear of death. As part of the lesson we have learnt that, below the human level, all life force in the physical universe is guided by the overall intelligence of Mother Nature.

 

The guidance is the product of her intelligence, and is received in the stepped-down form of instinct, appropriate to the evolvement level of the life force. Thus the life force of an elephant will respond at one level. The life force of bacteria in the elephant’s intestine will respond at a much lower level.

 

But both levels of life force evolvement will respond to that guidance, both, when in the physical or in the astral. So here we observe the ongoing, pendulum of astral and physical existence of the many levels of guided, evolving life force. At these levels of evolvement life force cannot think, it can only respond, at its own level, to the guidance of instinct.

 

The life force, guided by Mother Nature, enters, activates, and gives direction to the atomic structure that is the physical body. The life force abandons the physical body when the body becomes too ill, old, or damaged to continue. The life force doesn’t die, it moves to the astral level to which it has evolved. It cannot die because it is a living, evolving part of its Creator’s energies.

 

So now we realise that the visible and physical body is simply a tool and vehicle. Its function is to enable non-physical, evolving life force to experience physical existence. So far we have discussed life force that cannot think, it can only respond to instinct. This applies equally to your lovely dog or cat that died, the fish you caught for your supper, the house fly you just sprayed, and the tree you sawed into logs. It also applies to the life force of the now extinct dinosaurs of prehistoric times. It means that the ongoing evolvement level of the physical body reflects the ongoing drive of the life force to evolve, certainly not the other way around.

 

Let’s think about this astral/physical pendulum mechanism in terms of reincarnation. Even when life force has evolved to the individual, human, conscious, aware level it continues to use this mechanism. When the human body can no longer function, the individual, human, conscious, aware life force returns to a power-level of the astral vortex. There he or she awaits another opportunity to re-enter physical existence.

 

This is no different to all of the levels of evolving life force below that of the human level. There is a power-level in the astral vortex to match every level of life force evolvement. In a similar way to the fixed structure of coils of wire in a transformer, the energy structure of the astral vortex is constant and unchanging. It is the power-level of the energy, flowing through the vortex fixed energy structure that is continuously reduced in power-level. From this we learn that physical evolvement really reflects non-physical life force evolvement. Also that life force evolvement is really the drive to continually increase the capacity to reach ever-higher power-levels of the astral-vortex.

 

In our analogy of the nursery, our helpless, unthinking, beloved infants gradually sense, and then discover how to use, their physical bodies. Next they learn how to move about in their cots. Then they painfully learn to climb out of their cots to crawl about on the nursery floor. More bruising experience teaches the infants how to stand and then how to walk. Now intelligence begins to blossom in the nursery world of the infants. The realisation dawns in each of the infants that they can choose to walk to their toys. Finally each infant notices that the nursery has a door that leads to somewhere else if they can discover how to open it. This is the evolvement level where the nursery becomes a classroom for life force that has evolved to the conscious, aware, freewill endowed, individual human level. At this level individual intelligence coupled with freewill choice replaces blind obedience to the guidance of instinct. From our Creator’s (parental) viewpoint, all of the life force represents the family, not just the life force that has evolved to the human level.

 

How would our Creator regard us at our human level? Probably as school children who are at present fascinated and diverted by our physical classroom and by each other. Just like most children, we enjoy what is easy and what we are good at, and we avoid if we can what is difficult and unfamiliar.

 

Also, like most children, we nervously avoid thinking about leaving our familiar junior school, when alone we have to enter the unfamiliar senior school. It never occurs to us that beyond the world of classrooms and schools is an adult world in which each of us has a unique part to play. So to lose the fear of death we each have to re-assess our own value, from our Creator’s point of view instead of our own.

 

We have discussed in this article an astral vortex that we have compared to a transformer, in that its coils gradually transform high power-level energy into very low power-level energy. Elsewhere we have described how the vortex structure resulted in the creation of a physical universe formed from spinning atoms of low power-level energy, and also how dormant high power-level life force was able to descend the vortex to enter the lowest power-level of all, that of physical existence. We have described evolution as the ongoing drive to achieve adulthood in the same sense as our Creator regards adulthood. The only way the life force can achieve adulthood is to climb from the lowest power-level to our Creator’s high power-level. At first, as dormant life force, the drive to climb the vortex power-levels is in unconscious obedience to instinct. At the human individual life force level, the conscious, aware, intelligence of the life force can choose to climb or not.

 

Let’s now bring this knowledge into our daily lives. Between the moment a human egg is fertilised, to the moment the baby is born, the foetus is continuously transformed. From a simple life form consisting of a few cells, it rapidly passes through many of the lower levels of evolution before it finally evolves into a human baby. This is common knowledge, but how does it apply to the ongoing pendulum existence of the life force that enters and activates the baby? This question is relevant to the subject of losing the fear of death. When the same physical baby grows to adulthood and then to the degeneration of dotage, the life force will have to depart from it. So now let us explore how life force enters and leaves its physical vehicle.

 

Reincarnation we have described as the continuous pendulum existence between the astral vortex and physical existence. Eastern religions describe our individual vortex climb in terms of spiritual attainment, and we have described it in energy power-level terms. In fact, evolution, spiritual attainment, and increasing one’s capacity to exist on ever-higher power-levels of energy, all three are the same thing looked at in different ways. The advantage of thinking in terms of energy power-levels is this. We all know that our familiar, solid, physical universe is really composed of atoms that are composed of energy. We all already know that this energy that forms atoms is very real, and must arrive from somewhere. Our certainty of the realness of that energy takes the astral energy vortex out of the realms of unfamiliar mystical knowledge. Instead it places it firmly into the layperson’s store of scientific general knowledge.

 

A human being exists physically and on the astral, many, many times. Each time his or her intelligence evolves a bit more. Each time he or she will gain some spiritual attainment. Each time he or she will increase the capacity to exist on yet higher power-levels of the energy vortex. This is the point of the whole exercise. So whilst on the astral, our human being has relinquished his or her worn out physical body. He or she has returned to the power-level of the vortex, that his or her total capacity has achieved over many lives. When we leave the limitations of physical existence it is like being cured of a lifetime of amnesia, spent in a diving suit on a murky seabed.

 

We know that it states the obvious to suggest that an inexperienced boy of seventeen years could not imagine himself at the age of seventy years. Probably it would spoil his life if he could.

 

Of course he could visualise himself with grey hair and with an old and failing body. But it would be beyond the boy’s powers of perception to imagine the rich total of bitter, sweet experience that the decades ahead will give him. It would also be beyond the boy’s powers to imagine his outlook at the age of seventy. It would be an outlook moulded by those decades of experience that he had lived moment by moment. In this sense, for the boy, life is like moving through a mist, where only now is fairly clear. His past blurs and fades into the mist. His future has yet to materialise out of the mist.

 

The only moment the boy can control is this moment called, ‘Now’. The mist is filled with people and events that the boy will face and interact with when they appear before him out of the mist. Whenever the people and events appear, the boy can only interact with them at his then current level of understanding. The people and events may seem positive, or they may seem negative, but how the boy allows them to affect his outlook is the lesson he is there to learn. Each person and each event eventually slips from the boy’s ‘Now’ into the mist of the past. But it is the effect on the boy’s outlook that remains in the boy’s now. If that effect is positive, the boy will regard his unknown future with Positivity. Conversely, if that effect is negative, the boy will face his unknown future with Negativity. From boyhood to dotage his level of understanding continues to increase, unless it is clouded by emotions felt in the past.

 

All of this is obvious until we place it into the context of an experienced old man of seventy, riddled and torn with guilt or self-blame, over mistakes he made in his younger days. Or his present outlook soured by hate and bitterness over the people and events of long ago. At the start of this article we mentioned that there are things you take with you to the astral. Your outlook is one of those things because it is the self-image you have built. Unconsciously or consciously, you built that image of self. No one but you has the right to change that image.

 

The boy became an old man and then (to the best of everyone’s knowledge) he died. Contrary to his pre-conditioned expectations, he discovered that he wasn’t then promptly marched away to await judgement by God. Our Creator-parent does not and cannot interfere with the process that creates Creators. Instead the confused old man found that he was faced with a long, dark tunnel, brilliantly lit at its far end.  How he will deal with this situation will very much depend on how he has faced his unknown future during his physical life. This is important, so let’s pause here to examine this a little more deeply. Each of us has to face our future in our own way. For us all, the future contains an unforeseeable mixture of joys and disappointments that we deal with as each appears. The content of the mixture is of lesser importance than what the entire mixture represents. To each of us the mixture represents ongoing uncertainty that we must live with, from birth to death. In other words, the only foreseeable certainty in anyone’s future is its content of ongoing uncertainty.

 

Uncertainty only becomes certainty when it is fixed in our past. This is why we use our past as a rough guide to our future. From this it will be obvious that how we regard our uncertain future will be powerfully influenced by how we allow ourselves to regard our past.

 

For example, we can view the events in our past in two opposite ways, the negative way, with bitter regret for lost happiness. Also, the dread that the future may contain similar awful problems to those we faced in our past. Or we can view our past the positive way, with optimism firmly based in our knowledge that, as we knew happiness in the past we may well know happiness again in the future. Also, that as in our past we faced and resolved those awful problems, we can be confident of our ability to resolve similar problems in our future. One of those two ways to regard the past will also is the yardstick we will use to regard the future. So in that sense it doesn’t matter whether you are a pharaoh of Ancient Egypt, or a factory worker of today. You will regard your future in one of those two ways during your physical life. Now we return to our disembodied, confused old man, who is now faced with a mysterious, dark tunnel with a light at its far end. Of those two ways that we have described, which will he use? To the old man the tunnel now represents the unknown just as in physical life his future represented the unknown. He has a freewill choice to make, and only he can make it, to move through the tunnel and into the light, or to move away from the tunnel and the light. All of this sounds very mystical. So whilst the man ponders on his choices, let us transform the mysticism into practical knowledge that we can all understand and use.

 

What is the tunnel, and what is the light? Both represent different power-levels that the man must ascend to return to his total achieved power-level in the astral vortex. Earlier in this article we compared physical existence (as viewed from a total achieved astral power-level) to a lifetime of amnesia, lived in a clumsy diving suit, on a murky seabed. Of course it all felt natural whilst on the seabed and now our confused old man has left the seabed and has removed his heavy diving suit. But the man will continue to suffer from amnesia until he returns to his achieved power-level on the astral. The man was born completely stripped of memories of his previous physical and astral existences. Now, as he faces the tunnel, the only memories he has to guide and influence his choice are of this last physical life.

 

The light at the far end of the tunnel is that man’s total achieved power-level on the astral. The tunnel contains all of the power-levels that were previously stripped from him to enable him to be born into low power-level physical existence. In energy terms, his higher power-level had to be reduced before he could safely and gently enter the much lower power-level atomic structure of the growing foetus. Part of the power-level reduction process required his multiple (higher power-level energy) memory to be left in the same tunnel. This also was necessary to protect, in the mother’s womb, the foetus that was to be his future physical vehicle. For a moment let us consider his reincarnation, in human, psychological terms instead of power-level reduction terms.

 

There always seems to be confusion when the subject of birth and death is discussed. The Christian priest teaches that our old man was born with a brand new soul and that when the old man dies, his soul will sleep until awakened in God’s good timing. In complete contradiction of this belief, many people on their deathbeds, describe with joy, long dead loved ones that are there to meet them. Are the teachings inaccurate, or are people about to die, prone to hallucinations? The former seems more likely because the priest must teach only what he was taught. The dying person is in an altered state, similar to that of a psychic medium who describes what only she or he the medium can see.

 

Only when we apply the concept of reincarnation to this contradiction do we pinpoint the inaccurate part of the priest’s teaching. The inaccuracy lies in the question, when do you sleep? Does a soul sleep at the start or at the end of a physical existence? One thing is obvious, even to a person devoid of any kind of belief in God or the Hereafter. No matter what else death means to us, death is a certain escape from all physical pain. During physical life, a toothache or an aching back can be physical and mental torment until the pain is relieved. After the pain has gone we feel released, but may sleep to allow our bodies to rebuild their drained resources of physical energy.

 

When we leave physical existence we also leave its physical pain, so the need to sleep does not apply. The need to sleep does apply though, at birth and before. The priest teaches of brand new souls that enter brand new babies.

 

Reincarnation teaches us that we are experienced old souls. Also that to reincarnate, we must, with blank-sheet minds, re-enter a physical vehicle whilst it is still a foetus forming in its mother’s womb. Psychologically the need to sleep becomes obvious. It would be to escape the mental torment and mental pain that an aware, adult soul would suffer, trapped in the helpless body of a physical infant.

 

On his astral total achieved power-level, our old man has reviewed the lessons he previously set to learn during his last reincarnation. He alone judges his progress so far, and then plans his next reincarnation accordingly. He chooses his future parents and the environment into which he will be born, and so on. For the man, from his wider point of view whilst on the astral, there is only one reason to re-enter physical existence. The reason is to re-learn those lessons whilst in the confusion of physical life. Most of that confusion is caused by the necessity for everyone’s forgetfulness during their physical lives.

 

At this point a fundamental question must be answered if the readers are to make sense of this pendulum existence. The question is, why? We have explained that all life force is gradually ascending the power-levels of the astral vortex. Eventually all life force will rise above the vortex/physical pendulum existence. This includes the man in our example. Meanwhile, his progress continues to increase the gap between his achieved power-level whilst on the astral, and the power-level of physical existence. At the end of each reincarnation he leaves his physical body and returns to a higher power-level in the vortex. Finally the man reaches the highest power-levels of the vortex. This man through his own efforts is highly evolved, highly spiritualised, and so is able to exist on a very high power-level, but to achieve this high level he had to repeatedly return to the lowest power-level of all. Again and again he had to begin to make progress whilst stripped to the power-level of a helpless human foetus. As the power-level gap grows wider, a strange thing begins to happen. Earlier during the vortex climb, when the gap was much narrower, our man was slow in making progress. Each time when he reincarnated he was overwhelmed by the thoughts, ideas, and beliefs of other people that he believed knew better and more than he did. As a result of this, at the end of each life in the physical, he faced the tunnel with fear and trepidation.

 

Our confused old man has made his choice. Before his physical death he had developed an optimistic outlook despite the uncertain future that we all face. He has brought this outlook with him, and so he optimistically moves along the tunnel and into the light. But suppose he had developed a pessimistic, fear-filled outlook with which he now faced that tunnel? Full of self-doubt and fear of the unknown, he wouldn’t know what to do, or what to choose. What happens then? We need to know because for each of us, when our time comes, we will be faced with that same tunnel and that same quandary.

 

The tunnel and the light often are featured in the descriptions of near-death experiences of patients whilst undergoing surgical operations. These descriptions are very similar to those given by many clients during past-lives regression therapy. In both cases the person knows that he or she is fully conscious and aware, and has left the physical body. The person can see his or her unconscious physical body on the operating table surrounded by frantic surgeons, or, on his or her deathbed, surrounded by grieving relatives, at the end of that past life.

 

In both cases, when the person lifts his or her gaze from the physical scene below, the next to be seen is the tunnel and the light. Often whilst describing this tunnel to the PLR therapist, the client will suddenly realise that he or she is not alone. Someone has come out of the light and down the tunnel to meet the client.

 

Then the delighted client recognises the person as his or her beloved and trusted friend or relation that died before the client died, during that past life. Arm in arm, together they move through the tunnel and into the light. All of this sounds very encouraging and similar to the priest’s comforting assurances that, one-day we all will be reunited with our loved one, but what does it really mean?

Amid the illusion and confusion of physical life, people that we have categorised surround each of us. Our regard for each person is governed by our experience gained by our contact with that person, and as a result, some people we deeply love and trust, whilst others we may distrust, fear, and even hate, or any shade of feeling between these two extremes. Let’s call it a private mental catalogue that each of us makes, and then takes with us when our physical life ends. Thus when someone emerges from the light and the tunnel to meet us, automatically we consult the catalogue before we agree to trust and accompany that person.

 

For each of us the dream ends when we enter the light of our achieved power-level on the astral. Only then are we able to fully comprehend how that private mental catalogue distorted our regard for those around us. Released from the physical dream, we remember that we are all beloved students of a university for potential creators. For each of us our self-taught lessons take the form of an ongoing play.

 

The play is acted out on a theatre stage called physical life. We are the actors and actresses, and individually we make many exits and entrances as the play proceeds. There is no script, and so, offstage (on the astral) we students collaborate with each other so that onstage we will all learn from each other and from the play. To play our parts to the full, whilst on stage we have to fully immerse ourselves in the parts we have chosen. We may choose to sometimes play the villain, the hero, or a crowd scene part. But the lessons we learn from each part, onstage, are really to help each of us to eventually graduate (with flying colours!) from the University of Potential Creators.

 

We choose a different role each time that we appear in the play, sometimes as the oppressors, and other times as the oppressed. Each role offers us a different viewpoint of the roles we have played previously. Then as we learn more and more about ourselves, each of us, at our own speed of learning, chooses to refine our image of self. To achieve this, we plan our future parts so that whilst on stage they include the opportunity to realise that it is simply a play. Also to learn of the greater reality that lies behind the play. Previously onstage the apparent realness of the play, and its cast, deeply affected each of us until we left the stage, but then we learn to always be true to our refined self-image, both off stage and on stage. Only then does each of us begin to deeply affect in a positive and beneficial way, the play, and its entire cast. In accelerating numbers the actors and actresses, on stage, choose to portray the real person behind the fictional character part. Eventually, each of us in our own timing, finally leaves the play, and ascends to a higher grade in the University of Potential Creators.

 

His optimism that carried him into the light allowed our dear old friend to rediscover the truth behind the play. Even when fear and self-doubt clouded his optimism, always a trusted beloved from his past, would lead him into the light. Then the beloved would return to his or her achieved astral power-level (this might be higher or lower than our old friend’s achieved level).

 

Sometimes the old man’s fear and mistrust were so intense that even when his loved ones left their different astral levels to meet him, he would refuse to believe in them. At the human level this entire Creator Process is governed by individual freewill choice. To reincarnate, our man chose to move through the tunnel. Now only he can choose to return along the same tunnel. No one may force him if he chooses not to. But if he does choose not to enter the tunnel, where can he go? He cannot return to physical existence, and his fear has barred him from his achieved astral level. So where is he? He is trapped by his fears on the Interlife Zone between physical and astral existence. There he remains, oblivious to everyone and everything whilst he exists in a world of self-created fantasy and fear. He has become a trapped soul. He will remain trapped until a psychic medium in the physical, or someone on the astral can persuade him to re-enter the tunnel and move into the light. This is the only Hell, and only self-doubt and fear can create it. After countless delays caused by his fears, our man, whilst on his achieved astral level, finally decided to do something about it.

 

He learnt to always include in his future lessons for whilst in the physical, the chance to gain knowledge of his link to his higher self. For each of us the pivot of the pendulum existence is our higher self that exists above the astral levels. That was the breakthrough for our man, when he ceased to allow others in the physical to over-ride the guidance of his higher self. His progress accelerated on the astral. Whilst in the physical, he became a light-worker that helped to transform general confusion and fear into the clarity of self-knowledge. The higher that he climbed on the astral, the more affect he had on the confusion rife in the physical. But also, despite undergoing the required reduction process each time to be able reincarnate, he found that his astral-achieved high power-level began to affect his physical body.

 

How was this possible? To understand how, first we must consider the purpose of a physical universe. Earlier we described physical existence as a womb and a cradle. This womb and this cradle is for dormant life force that has the potential to evolve to the human (individual me) intelligence level. Until the life force evolves to that level, it exists in unconscious harmony and balance with the rest of Creation, and always in the moment called “Now”.

 

Even the apparent foresight of the little red squirrel that hoards nuts for the winter, it is not foresight. The squirrel collects and hoards nuts “NOW” in response to instinct that compels it to act “NOW”. In this sense, all life force below the human level is an unconscious, guided part of an overall harmonious pattern. But what happens to that pattern when life force evolves to the human level? Just a passing glance at planet Earth clearly demonstrates what happens. At the human level, individual conscious awareness replaces blind obedience to the overall pattern.

 

The overall pattern is the product of an overall intelligence that never interferes with the pattern. Looked at logically, this means that there is no permanent place in that overall pattern, for the individual human level of conscious, aware intelligence, and yet we return to that pattern again and again, as we progress to climb the vortex. Let us think about this for a moment in terms of, Mother, Womb, Nursery, and Classroom.

 

Mother represents the overall intelligence. The lower power-levels of the non-physical astral vortex and our physical universe together represent the womb and nursery. Energy, converted into the physical matter of physical bodies, represents the protective-garments and vehicles that all non-physical life force must wear whilst existing in the physical. We can compare the overall pattern to Mother’s set nursery routine. That routine is very flexible. It has to be to cover needs that range from those of newly born babies, to those needs of active toddlers that are near to school age. Because of the flexibility of her routine, Mother seldom if ever has to alter it. She designed her nursery routine for infants because they are unable to think for themselves. But also her routine extends to the protective garments worn by the active toddlers who do think for themselves. Carefully Mother never interferes with the way a toddler chooses to think and act, because she knows it will learn from mistakes.

 

She also knows that when it has learnt to always choose harmony and balance as its way of thinking, it will permanently leave the nursery. Mother only asserts herself when, in their immature and arrogant thoughtlessness, the children’s mistaken thinking becomes a threat to the nursery. Then Mother gives those children an experience to learn from, of a world where harmony and balance is missing.

 

The experience this time is familiar to us all. It is of a planet where pollution, and man-made global overheating have made freak weather patterns and rising sea levels a normal, studiously ignored, way of life. In this sense in our analogy of the nursery, it is fitting that we have likened Mankind’s current use of thought to that of wayward and clumsy children. This isn’t punishment, it is we being affected by what we originally caused, or allowed to be caused by our apathy.

 

Through the mistakes we all make whilst in the nursery, we all experience different aspects of dis-harmony and unbalance. Whilst in the nursery our mistakes cause no permanent harm to anyone. So the lesson we all individually learn from the nursery is to choose to think and act always with harmony and balance. Eventually we no longer have to consciously choose because each of us becomes harmony and balance. Then we can be trusted not to create havoc wherever we go when we leave the nursery.

 

Now we return to our old friend. To reincarnate yet again he must descend from his very high, achieved power-level of the astral vortex. Again he must pass through the tunnel to the Interlife zone, and from there, safely reduced in power-level, into physical existence. Now with increasing difficulty he sleeps whilst his tiny, helpless physical vehicle takes form. His difficulty is the vast gap between his astral and physical power-levels. Probably our readers have already seen typical examples of our old friend. You stop to admire a stranger’s baby in its cot or pram. For you it is like an electric shock to see bright intelligence and instant recognition when the baby’s eyes meet yours. Today, wherever you are in the world you could experience such a shock.

 

No longer is this a rare experience because for countless ages time and time again we have all made that gruelling two-way trip through the tunnel, highly developed souls whose chosen character roles on the physical stage are identical to their image of self on the astral. Just before and ever since this new millennium began, these souls have been reincarnating into the physical. As our old friend is typical of these returning souls, let us follow his progress.

 

Patiently our old friend dozes and holds his high power-level intelligence at bay. This he must do to allow his baby vehicle to develop naturally in its own timing. At this helpless stage all he can do is observe from his cot or his pram. Through the physical eyes and brain eyes of the baby our old friend receives glimpses of the real self-images of those character actors and actresses that surround him. The baby enters early childhood and because it is so filled with self-confidence, it becomes a source of astonishment to its parents and grandparents. Most of us have looked back in wonder when we have compared it to our own lack of self-confidence when at a similar age to our grandchildren.

 

More sources of astonishment for us all are the instant rapport that youngsters have with computers. It is as if they instinctively know that computers are simply tools that will release mankind from drudgery, to allow him and her at last, the time to concentrate on being truly human. Also children quickly grasp the computer’s potential to teach people everywhere to cherish and share with all people everywhere.

 

Our old friend is typical of this new special generation of children and young people who are changing the attitudes and outlook of their elders. No shabby, nationalistic, propaganda campaign will fool these clear-eyed souls into bloody wars against other souls. At their schools and colleges these fearless souls already run their own campaigns. They focus the public spotlight into the furtive shadows of the hypocrisy that always has riddled our society. At their age most of we elders were too busy, concentrating on qualifications for future careers in that society, to even notice the hypocrisy. Now, at long last, a new, enlightened generation is learning from the mistakes made by previous generations. It isn’t so much the mistakes we made, it is our reluctance to acknowledge and rectify those mistakes, that generates impatience in our youngsters. Who can wonder if, amid the physical illusion, many of them take to addictive drugs, as an escape from the madness of generally accepted normality?

 

In his outspoken teens our old friend tried to cure the problems of the world. Later, with a little more wisdom, he tried to alter the legislation that he believed caused those problems. Baffled when this failed he turned away from the world and instead withdrew into himself. Then, just as he’d previously planned whilst on the astral, a light worker taught him to meditate. Quickly this triggered his conscious link to his higher self. Next, knowledge of the bigger picture flowed down the link to widen his outlook, and this in turn revealed what he had previously missed. He realised those legislators and legislated, rulers and ruled, all have the same thing in common.

 

They are all unique and special individuals who don’t yet realise they are unique. Because of this each of them lacks self-trust. Filled with hidden fears, and with doubt of self, they merge their individuality into that of the crowd. Either as the leaders and manipulators of the crowd or as the faceless led of the crowd, but always as a crowd.

 

This gave our old friend a clue as to his role. Quietly and in his own way he began to help those he met to look at their selves in a new light. His help took the form of talking to, and writing for, individuals, because in a crowd people listen as a crowd. The effect of his work on individuals remained unseen, but he trusted that the affected individuals in turn would pass on the effect in ever-widening ripples. This is happening now. There are countless numbers like our old friend, quietly bringing the light of self-knowledge and self-confidence to individuals all over planet Earth. The work began slowly and painfully, as an idea that was alien to accepted normality. Then, just like a virus, it spread around the planet to affect everyone it touched.

 

What of our old friend’s ascension above the vortex power-levels? Why must it include the ascension of his physical body? There would be no need to include it if his intended final destination was to remain as part of his Creator’s Creation. But this isn’t his intended final destination. His final destination is to be the adult creator of his own unique creation, maybe alongside, but certainly not as part of, his parent Creator’s Creation. Together our old friend, merged with his feminine aspect twin soul, must leave their Creator’s Creation. Their adult role is to fulfil their part in the process that creates creators.

 

When the acorns leave their parent oak tree, they all contain the patterns needed to become oak trees in their own right. But this is not enough because when they leave the parent tree they also leave behind its flow of life-giving sap. This problem is overcome early in the process, whilst the acorns are developing on the tree. Each acorn converts some of the sap into a form of stored nourishment (the kernel), to use after they leave the tree and before they individually take root in fertile soil.

 

Now we must apply the same idea to our old friend, and what applies to him also applies to each of us. When we leave our Creator’s creation we will need an equivalent to the acorn’s kernel. Everything that is part of our Creator’s Creation (physical and non-physical) is totally dependent for continued existence, on an unfailing flow of energy from our Creator. That energy flow is very real both, before and after it has taken the form of atoms. The Creator-donated energy flow is continuously reduced in power-level as it spirals to the centre of the astral vortex, on its way to be formed into lowest power-level physical atoms.

As we climb the power-levels of the vortex we emboss our self-built image of self, onto the energy flow at our currently achieved total power-level. Our old friend’s self-built image of self belongs to him, because he alone created it. But the energy flow onto which that image is embossed is not his, because it enters and leaves his image, on its way down the vortex to become lowest power-level physical matter.

 

His spiritual progress, the control his highly evolved intelligence has over his thoughts and emotions, his striving in the altered state to reach ever-higher power-levels of the energy vortex. All three are the same thing, and they mean that our old friend, with his self-built, harmoniously balanced, image of self, could rise above the vortex. But first he must descend again to physical existence to collect the energy version of the acorn’s kernel that later he will need to reach his intended destination.

 

Now let’s all get comfortable and familiar with such daunting words as “Intelligence” and “Atoms”. Earlier we defined intelligence as a very real Creative energy that has evolved to the human level of aware, consciousness of self, and will continue to evolve at its own speed to our Creator’s level. That definition applies to all of us. Many people (including the authors) might feel that if ascension requires highly evolved and developed intelligence, “We’re not going anywhere”. But if for a moment we all drop our self-judgmental roles, we may then regard our own intelligence in a more favourable light. Let’s look at an example.

 

In the world of science, names such as, Albert Einstein, Isaac Newton, and Charles Darwin, these and many more are justly revered. But for what are they revered? Obviously it is for their invaluable contributions to the ever-growing store of scientific knowledge. We could say that the products of their individual intelligence benefited mankind, and for that we honour them.

 

But also in comparison to them we tend to devalue our own intelligence; these men were special, where as we are not special. But if we asked these honoured men, they would not agree that they were any more special than the rest of us. This wouldn’t be false humility; it would simply be the truth. The great store of scientific knowledge is composed of both, what has been clearly proved to be true, or of what has been clearly proved to be untrue. Provable knowledge of both is an essential foundation on which to build further reliable truth.

 

If asked, any of these great thinkers might tell you, “From existing data, all that I knew for sure was what it definitely isn’t. Knowing this, I wracked my brains to discover what it definitely is. Finally, no nearer to the answer, I shelved the problem until tomorrow, and instead went home to relax in a hot bath. Then, amid the warmth, steam and lather, whilst musing on thoughts of supper later on with my wife, inspiration came like a flash in the form of the searched-for answer. Suddenly I knew the answer, and the rest that followed was just tedious hard work. This was inspiration from his higher self that was only able to reach him when he ceased to create a barrage of thought. This same inspiration is the businessman’s sudden hunch or the poet’s or the composer’s creative-flow, that in the middle of the night awakens them.

 

All of us have experienced these sudden intuitive flashes of “Knowing” no matter what we choose to call them. What we do with that inspiration is then up to our individual freewill choice. But no one is barred from his or her higher self, and so in that sense we all have the same potential to highly evolve our intelligence.

After all, the same man, whose ideas changed the way mankind regards the universe, would probably be completely baffled by the intricacies of an income tax form.  Equally, his brilliant mind might retire totally defeated, when faced with a gunge-clogged S. bend drainage pipe of a kitchen sink. Really this means that our praise for the man should be equalled by our praise for his wife, who took on all the mundane boring tasks to free him to think. Possibly Mrs Einstein seldom if ever, felt riveted by her husband’s theories. But in her love for him she intuitively and fully directed her intelligence towards releasing his thoughts from the mundane. So which of the two had the highest evolved intelligence? Who may judge? Brilliance of intelligence becomes meaningless unless guided by the love of harmony and balance.

 

From these examples we all may allow ourselves to never again feel intimidated by comparisons of intelligence levels. These comparisons are simply fake weapons used in a school fictional stage play about a temporary and illusionary competitive world.

 

Now let’s see how we all feel about atoms? Just like our guess about Mrs Einstein’s feelings, probably the answer would be, “We feel indifference, and can take them or leave them”. This was a fair answer for many thousands of years, because until recent decades no one had the technology to see an atom, let alone, to see inside of it. Ancient Greek philosophers (who were also the scientists of the time) theorised that if something solid was continuously cut in half enough times, eventually what would remain would be an atom. Also that if you then cut this tiny atom of solid matter into halves it would disappear because it would be too small to exist.

 

Until comparatively recent days, no one since that time had any better ideas. As a result, countless generations both, of learned scientists, and of learned theologians, based their theories and teachings on one ancient unproven idea. The idea, that solid physical matter is entirely separated from the blind, non-physical process (favoured by the scientists) or, of the non-physical intelligent Creator (favoured by the theologians), that somehow created solid physical matter.

 

Later this same rigid idea placed severe limitations on the far-reaching work on the laws of physics by that genius, Isaac Newton. The same rigid idea also limited the brilliant insight of Charles Darwin as to the wider meaning and ongoing purpose of evolution.

 

The rigidity of the concept was based in the idea that all atoms of solid matter were created once only. Then once created by whatever created them, the atoms were left to get on with obeying the laws of physics. Even young schoolchildren of today are in a position to know a scientifically proven truth, denied for aeons to scientists and theologians alike.

 

The truth is that each atom is created and re-created continuously from an incoming flow of energy from the non-physical dimensions. The energy flow arrives via the empty space at the centre of each atom. If the energy flow ceased, the physical universe would cease to exist in its physical form. This applies no matter who or what supplies the ongoing energy flow. These physical atoms of whirling energy must obey the laws of physics.

 

All of us have lived with the effect of this unintended distortion of truth ever since. As a result we will only trust our physical senses.

This means that we rely entirely on our physical senses to tell us everything we want to know, even when we become curious to know about the non-physical. When use of these inappropriate senses, leads, as it must to failure and disappointment, often we will doubt the reality of the non-physical. Or we will doubt our own abilities. Instead we tend to rely on the abilities of others rather than to seek inside ourselves for senses, more appropriately attuned for the task.

 

Why did we ask how you feel about atoms? We asked to enable you to fully comprehend the realness of the non-physical, because it is no less real than the physical. Exactly the same energies are the basis of both, physical and non-physical existence. To make those same energies physical they had to be reduced in power-level and compelled to spin via the sub-atomic level into the form of atoms.

 

So now we come to the real question. What was and is, continuously used to control and compel high power-level energies to become low power-level atoms? The answer must be the living intelligence of our Creator. This has to be an acceptable answer, rather than the product of wishful thinking. So first we must acknowledge that living intelligence can and does control energy, even on our human level amid physical matter.

 

Every human trio of “Me, Mind, and Body”, is really a structure composed entirely of energy-flows. This structure is set amid, and is an integral part of, a larger energy-flow structure that we regard as physical existence. Simply by the use of thought, the living intelligence of “Me” is able direct “Body” via “Mind” to climb a mountain, or to send a rocket composed of atoms, to the moon. Equally, because emotions also are flows of energy, the living intelligence of “Me” is able to create or shatter the happiness of another “Me” simply with the vibrations of mutually understood words.

 

As we all learn more and more about our own human trio, the living intelligence of each of us continuously evolves to ever-higher power-levels of the energy vortex. Harvest time for our Creator is on an individual basis for each of us. Our individual evolvement of our conscious, aware, living intelligence will finally be able to channel our total achieved energy power-level from the astral and above.

 

We will actually draw down that high power-level energy into the low power-level energy structure of the atoms that form our current physical body. To remain physical, the energy structure of atoms must remain at the low power-level range of physical existence. Ascension means that we have consciously raised that power-level to the point where the atoms of our body can no longer remain in physical existence. Each in our own timing will take over from our Creator the control of that energy. Each acorn will have converted life-supporting, flowing sap into an independent kernel (energy source) to use later on, after leaving the parent tree.

 

So our individual ascension to the non-physical level is the beginning not the end of our conscious, aware, learning process. Ascension is simply the doorway by which we leave the nursery and the classroom for infants. The same doorway will lead us as ascended masters to the next grade up in the University of Potential Creators. But the only place for death, in our scenario, is the death of fear, and the fear of an illusion named, “DEATH”

AUTHORS’ COMMENTARY.

In the previous article we began with a forest of rain-drenched umbrellas beneath which mourners listened, whilst the vicar intoned grey words of Jove. All of us feel sympathy because all of us at some time take some part in the described scene. Also, we must offer sympathy to the vicar because he is locked into the inflexibility of tradition and ritual. Whether he wishes to be or not, it is expected of him, by the church hierarchy that employs him, and also by his congregation. The vicar privately may also be a student of metaphysics, who also has a profound knowledge of the mechanics and purpose of reincarnation. His studies in private completely contradict what he must teach in public, and yet he is torn between loyalty to tradition and loyalty to truth. He knows beforehand that if he is loyal to truth he will become just another voice crying in the wilderness; rather like all of you and us light-workers.  So for the benefit of all vicars, and all congregations, our next article describes how Yvonne and I work for the Light.

Antique Ramblings

I’m 78 nearly 79 yrs old. This means that any decade, any year, any month, week, or day, or even in the next hour I could leave this mortal coil. After my long, interesting, eventful physical life in this now aging, aching body the prospect doesn’t alarm me of entering the zone of non-physical existence. After shuffling through the dubious offerings from science and religions as to what I will face I have found it an entertaining exercise to limit myself to my own solitary meditative ponderings as to what I may face.
Everything Science tells me boils down to the provable fact that, everything in the physical universe, including my human body, is made up from an incoming flow of energy. This energy flow is somehow compelled to structure itself into atomic matter (which is really tightly whirling energy orbiting tiny empty spaces) from which everything so-convincingly physical is formed.
So immediately I am faced the undeniable fact thatwhat seems so real and solid is a structured energy matrix onto which in some way I am embossed or projected; rather like a holographic image. This leaves me idly wondering whether if two holographic images touched would they feel solid to each other. Science also proves to me via Mr Charles Darwin that the lifeforce that clearly exists in this universe is also driven and controlled, by instinct to evolve to the aware, intelligent, human level that thinks of his or her self as ‘Me’; and this is clearly demonstrated by the evolution from the lliving single celled organisms of billions of years ago up to and including the physical human body because in parallel with this physical evolution we have the undeniable ongoing individualised evolution of the non-physical lifeforce that today I regard as ‘Me’. In fact I suggest that the evolution of the physical body at every stage of its evolution is driven by the requirements of the non-physical lifeforce to exist and fully function in this physical universe. So I conclude that the Creator’s purpose for the creation of the physical universe was and is to act as a seedbed in which individualised, human level, inductive thinking and aware non-physical intelligence could germinate and to blossom. To then leave this physical dimension to re-enter the Creator’s non-physical dimensions.

Three of my past lives briefly seen and experienced in meditation.

Three of my past lives briefly seen and experienced in meditation.

 For those who have yet to experience regression into their past lives it might be helpful if I first briefly explain how it feels to be regressed. Also I should explain what might be achieved for the one who is regressed. At first glance the subject seems to contradict the ancient wisdom. This always urges us to live in the now, and not to dwell on past glories or past failures. In terms of present life clung-to guilt, regret, bitterness and so on, the wisdom is undeniably correct.

Equally, for the person who must do menial work in this life, what benefit is there to know that in a past life he, or she, was a rich and powerful ruler? Ofcourse there would be no benefit if the purpose were simply to satisfy casual curiosity. But this is not the purpose. Master and slave, both are said to enter and leave physical life with nothing. In terms of Earthly goods and Earthly knowledge this is true. Neither is relevant to non-physical existence on the Astral and the higher levels.

What we do take with us to the astral is the effect on our outlook of our individual experiences in physical life. Both, positive spiritual progress and negative obsessive thought are non-physical. Because they are non-physical their effect remains with us and affects our outlook no matter where we are. From life to life the cause of an obsession will be forgotten, but the obsession will continue to affect the one who is obsessed until the cause is once more revealed. To illustrate the point, and with his permission, I will describe how regression helped my husband David.

David is a harmless gentle sort of man, who throughout his entire life had always loathed houseflies and bluebottles. Allow one of these to exist in the same room as David, especially at meal times, and there would be no peace until it was dispatched. Most people dislike flies, but not with the intensity of loathing felt by David. When I guided David into regression we both then at last found out why.

In that life David knew that he and his brother were fellow soldiers in the armies of the Roman Empire. David was able to describe his situation to me. A battle had been fought and David and his brother had been mortally wounded and both now lay near to death under the hot sun. His beloved brother’s body had terrible, bloody, gaping wounds and the swarms of flies that covered and crawled in the wounds increased his agony. Helplessly, David could only watch the slow, agonised death of his brother.

As that life ended, David died full of hatred for flies, and with the first hand knowledge of what they had done to his brother. In the many lives that followed, David’s brother was forgotten, but the irrational hatred of flies remained. After the session had clearly revealed the cause, David’s obsessive hatred of flies ended and never returned. Before we move on to my past lives, just a couple of points for the readers to note, because to be regressed is not to view your self like in a cinema film.

First of all David was not a detached onlooker who observed someone who was himself and his brother in the described scene. David’s experience was as one of the two wounded men in the scene, and he relived the intense emotions felt at that time. Secondly, David did not experience any other part of that life. His higher self only revealed to David the part that was relevant in that it affected David’s present life.

23-10-1989: In meditation I was taken into a past life. In that life I know that I am a Roman lady of great wealth and that I now wear a heavy, ornate gold chain around my neck. I can feel that I have just been injured by the collapse of a building caused by an earthquake. Near to where I lie injured I can see some men who hastily board a boat to escape the chaos and destruction. One of these men pauses in his flight to lift my gold chain from my neck with the tip of his sword, and then he kills me.

1-1-1991: As I enter this life, before me stands a first dynasty Pharaoh of Ancient Egypt, in his hand he holds a rod of power that has a tassel at its end. I know that I am a priestess of the temple, and that I wear a white fitted gown. Around my neck hangs a wonderful necklace of gold, heavy with many large rubies. In my hands I carry a ceremonial sword, beautifully made of pure gold richly encrusted with many precious gems including more rubies. I carry it partially covered in a white cloth. It is my role to present this sword to Pharaoh.

9-11-1991: Another life in Ancient Egypt, but quite different from the one just described. This time I had committed a great offence or sin for which the penalty was death. First I was bound in cloth and then forced into a large bag into which also a live cat was placed. The neck of the bag was tied and then I was thrown into the Nile to slowly drown whilst the fear-maddened terrified cat fought and clawed in vain to escape. Later my body was washed up on the bank of the river. There two spirit beings watched over my body until my friends came to take it away for decent burial.

So why did my higher self select those three past-lives incidents to show to me?

Often, matters that others are able to easily comprehend as obvious seem at the time to be totally beyond our own comprehension. When eventually the light dawns and we do comprehend we could then kick ourselves that something so obvious eluded us for so long. In this present life we all tend to cling to and overvalue our roles or we undervalue them and wish we had other roles instead. The hungry pauper longs for the power and riches of the king, whilst the harassed king, surrounded by human parasites, usurpers, and Yes-men, longs for the responsibility-free life of the pauper.

Phrased like this no one need feel the urge to kick their selves, but countless numbers of people have to live enormous numbers of physical lives before the obviousness of the truth dawns upon them. It’s not their fault really, because in each life they are conditioned from birth by loved and respected elders to think in a certain acceptable way, as previously were those elders. We souls in our own timing, pendulum-swing from astral to physical and back over and over again but the thought conditioning travels down the physical generations and awaits each soul no matter when we reincarnate.

Lovingly the conditioning always channels our thoughts into a path relevant to physical survival and success, and all that comes with success. Anything outside of that path is considered as interesting but irrelevant. The time to kick ourselves is when it finally dawns upon us that our individual spiritual enlightenment is the only success that is always relevant no matter where or who we are.

I tell you God spoke to me

I TELL YOU GOD SPOKE TO ME!

Apart from my mother who had to be there at the time, alone I entered the world and when I face the death of my physical body, alone I shall leave this world.

During the period between these two events I shall continue to be bombarded by the thoughts, ideas, opinions, rules and regulations, and man-made laws of other people. This is no different and applies to every human being that ever has and ever will exist on this planet.

In 1936 I was born left-handed into a world designed for a right-handed race. During world war two, at the English primary school I attended, the headmaster honestly believed that to enforce ambidexterity upon five year old yours truly could screw up my brain. Unwittingly that good man condemned me to a life of struggle as all things mechanical are designed for status-quo right-handed people, including can openers, piano keyboards, the stringing of banjos and guitars, tools, most garden gates, and also the mechanics of English hand-writing. Though a struggle I had to learn different ways of doing things and thinking about things that I wouldn’t have had to learn if I had been born right-handed, and also thinking and doing in ways mostly right-handed mankind would never experience.

Gratefully, when I was a youngster my parents taught me to believe in a loving God, but didn’t indoctrinate me into any religious belief system and so I now view with a jaundiced eye and as an outside observer all traditional dogma-bound religions. I reserve an even more jaundiced eye when observing the hierarchies of people who, even well into their dotage, traditionally organise and run these different religions. I hope that mostly these are lovely, kind people who honestly and sincerely believe in what they teach. Confusion enters the scene when an outsider tries to make sense of what is being taught because each belief system offers different names for, and versions and interpretations of our relationship to, our Creator; versions and interpretations mostly handed down and set in the inflexible concrete of tradition down the ages.

Each different belief system has it own holy book or books, and each holy book trots out a totally different set of instructions for the teachers to impart to the unquestioning followers. Most religions throughout the world appear to be founded on the belief that long ago our Creator spoke to a man, and then that man relayed what he received to other men who then handed the knowledge in written form down the generations of men. Ironically, although that ancient-times man must have been psychic to have been able to telepathically receive a non-physical God’s utterances, many teachers of religions since then condemn and regard with deep suspicion anyone who openly displays psychic abilities.

Why do I have a jaundiced eye in regard to the hierarchies of people who, even well into their dotage, traditionally organise and run these different religions?

Assuming that the ancient-times man was, just like we are, subject to the frailties of being human, he had to eat, drink, and sleep. He shivered when cold and perspired when hot, and like us he had his worries and self-doubts, his highs and lows. Apparently this man had no need for a hierarchy of priests to intercede with God for him because he was in direct contact with his Creator. So why do we need them to intercede for us, surely if God spoke to that man there’s no reason why God wouldn’t speak direct to each of us if we trained ourselves to listen?

What of the holy books? Mostly these are men’s interpretations of men’s interpretations of what was actually meant when God spoke to the ancient-times man. We have all played the party game sitting in a circle and passing a message from player to player. By the time the message has travelled the circle it returns to its sender as garbled nonsense. Now consider the countless times down the centuries the holy books have been copied, translated into different languages and even re-interpreted for political motives. Even the misplacing of a comma could alter the intended meaning of a sentence, and yet today’s followers of traditional religions are required to faithfully accept as God’s Word everything written in their holy books. So my objection is that the priests expect and encourage their followers to accept a passive audience role instead of teaching them meditation techniques to enable followers to link directly with their Creator. Instead, if today a man insisted that God spoke to him those same hierarchies of priests would no doubt ridicule him or demand that he prove his claim.

At the beginning of this article I mentioned about being alone when I entered the world and when I face the death of my physical body, alone I shall leave this world. During the period between these two events I shall continue to be bombarded by the religious belief systems, thoughts, ideas, opinions, rules and regulations, and man-made laws, of other people. This is no different and applies to every human being that ever has and ever will exist on this planet. Knowing this it is up to each human being to apply clear thought and discernment before choosing to believe anything contained in the bombardment. The alternative is to be led by the nose as a non-thinking member of a herd. But what do you think?

WE ARE THE ONES, AND NO ONE PROMISED IT WOULD BE EASY!

As ‘Light workers’ wouldn’t it be lovely to be able to pick and choose the stepping-stones that form our spiritual path? If such choices were available to us we would no doubt always choose to be surrounded by helpful, friendly people who share our belief in the Ascension Process. We imagine that it must be always so much easier with the ongoing support of like-minded folk. When they felt discouraged, you would be there to uplift them. When you felt discouraged they would then uplift you. You would support their ‘New-age’ efforts and they would support yours. In this way ‘Working for the Light’ might become a continuously delightful experience for one and all. The truth is that for countless genuine and sincere light workers dotted around the world; ‘The Path’ isn’t like this at all. Far from it, for many it’s all about at times feeling trapped by lack of money, lack of like-minded stimulation, and also at times feeling one has been abandoned as irrelevant by Spirit, by family and by friends. Such negativity evaporates when one learns to draw upon that well of inner strength, or when a seeker seeks that which the light worker offers.

It sounds ridiculous to suspect that there’s some sort of ‘Celestial Selection Process’ that decides who gets which stepping-stones. For example, in 1991 Yvonne and myself  (David) meditated separately and deeply for guidance before, at the invitation of a trusted friend in France, in July 91 we permanently left behind in England all that was secure, comfortable and familiar to us. During those meditations Sanat Kumara said in a gentle voice to Yvonne, “You’ll do as you’re told”. From foreknowledge Master S K was assuring us that he knew we would follow the stepping-stones wherever they led us. Despite our meditations, when decision time arrived, it had to be a snap decision; a yes or no choice mainly based on our trust of those whom we honestly believed were our sincere friends. To avoid a long dreary story let us simply say that our trust was miss-placed. A previously unmentioned change of plan made us surplus to our friend’s requirements. In truth the trusted friend had never intended to reciprocate our 100% whole-hearted commitment to her venture. By January 92 we were left almost broke, friendless, homeless, and in a hastily rented old caravan amid the heavy snows of wintertime France.

Neither of us believes in coincidence. We could only conclude that the deeper meaning was that Spirit had used our wayward friend as a stepping-stone simply to move us to France. But once in France, Spirit meant for us to work alone. At that point, as ordinary working folk we were faced with another choice, to run back to safe England or to somehow remain in France. Really it wasn’t much of a choice to make because next we found that everything worked against our return to the UK (where we speak the language) whilst everything worked towards keeping us in France near the Pyrenean Mountains border with Spain (Where we don’t speak the language). Next, somehow, on a very worrying, very tight shoestring basis, painfully slowly but surely things began to work out for us so that, then and to date, we had and have just enough to live on. Already in our fifties what could we conclude from this ridiculous situation in which we were placed? We were and are genuine workers for the Light. We don’t play at it, for us Ascension is our real life.

Some of you readers already know, from Soul Readings received via Yvonne’s Psychic postal service, and even before, in England, Yvonne’s many clients, knew that Yvonne is a very experienced Medium. But in France, unless clients were fluent in Anglais, the language barrier barred Yvonne from this source of income. In a similar way distribution of our Ascension writings have always been limited to those who are able to read Anglais. So why did Spirit guide us to France? Earlier we mentioned the isolation the light worker must be prepared to face on the path. In our case we faced a financial and language barrier that we still struggle to overcome. We also learnt from our own experiences, that on the path the thoughts of the seeker continuously evolve beyond the comfort zone level of mundane daily life enjoyed by most people. This doesn’t mean that the seeker becomes superior to everyone else. It simply means that the seeker’s priorities and aims are so totally different. This, in turn, makes it difficult for the comfort zones of other people to cope with. Our sympathies go out to all solitary and isolated seekers and light workers, wherever Spirit may have guided them. Unless one is a dedicated ascetic (which we are not) it is impossible, without like-minded support, to remain totally focused, 24 hours a day, upon one’s ascension.

There are familiar, taken for granted, things that one misses, particularly for seekers who are women. For example, when most wives (and even lady mediums / channels!) need a break from their husbands’ often-repetitive conversations they pop next door to chat with their neighbour’s wife, or they visit the nearby busy shopping centre. Often for the female light workers abroad in isolation, even this relief is denied to them.

Please don’t think that this article is a diatribe of complaints about the stepping-stones that Yvonne and I consciously and willingly chose to follow. We love France and the French people, and the richness of their preferred way of life. We cheerfully remained here in this Pyrenean hilltop tiny village, surrounded by definitely not ‘New age’ thinkers, until Spirit decided our next move. Really this article is all about finding your own niche as light workers. Eventually, in one’s own timing, one moves beyond the need to be a follower of this or that proffered ‘New age’ belief. By that time, with an open mind one has taken in masses of assorted spiritual information culled from workshops, from channelled articles and from latest new age books etc.

Many sources of the same information offer helpful, sincere interpretations that appear to contradict each other. For the open-minded seeker this is very confusing, but it is also a test of discernment because in the end it will always come down to what ‘YOU’ believe, regardless of what anyone else believes or expects ‘YOU’ to believe. Once that fact crystallizes in your consciousness you then realize that you are on your own solitary path. Also that this applies no matter whether you live surrounded by the hurly-burly of the ‘New age’ scene, or, like us, you live mainly solitary lives, isolated from like-minded people. Yvonne and I are more fortunate than many light workers are in that we have the solid and reliable support of each other in our belief in the Ascension Process. Many solitary light workers guided by Spirit to far-flung places often have to provide their own ongoing support in their beliefs. They have our admiration and sympathy, but just like us they have found their special niche. Of course this has brought us, full circle, back to our original question. What did Spirit have in mind as light work for this English, middle-aged, married couple in 1991 in one of the most isolated, beautiful, forgotten, and neglected parts of France? First here is a little French history to find out what France needed from us.

Seekers are also always students no matter of what age group. We certainly had a great deal to learn, about ourselves and about the history of the area, before we recognized and then grew into our niche. I have already explained the limitations that we faced. These limitations meant that folks in France would seldom use any ‘intuitive writing’ or healing talents or developed psychic gifts that we knew we had to offer. Obviously Spirit didn’t intend our role to be connected with modern day French people in this area where, at the time, Spanish rather than English, was the second language. To become truly fluent communicators would take too long. Also in 1991 in this rural area local folk often regarded ‘New-age people’ as dabblers in black magic. From this we concluded that our future work must be connected in some way with this strange area of southern France. More than a decade later it is now known throughout the world as, “The land of the Cathars”

To become a seeker of truth also requires that the seeker cease to be a passive follower of this or that dogmatic belief system. This is inevitable no matter into which century the seeker is born. In medieval times, the Holy Roman Church would accuse any freethinking seeker of truth of being a heretic. To save the heretic’s soul from damnation required that he or she should publicly recant and obediently return to the RC fold. On refusal to recant, the seeker would be mercilessly tortured to enable him or her to physically experience the forthcoming torments of Hell. Finally the seeker of truth would be condemned to death and would then be publicly burnt to death.

We have described the fate of one typical medieval freethinking individual seeker. Now try to imagine the grim fate of a freethinking tolerant race of people encouraged to be individual seekers of truth, such as were the Cathars. Today, at least in the western countries, passive and fear-filled obedience to the demands of religious bigots has been replaced by public indifference. Today no one, including the authorities, really cares what you believe so long as you keep on producing and consuming. In a slightly different manner in those medieval times whilst Europe wallowed in the Dark Ages of religious bigotry the greater part of southern France enjoyed an easygoing outlook towards any religion that individuals chose to follow, or chose not to follow.

The Cathar belief system was a form of Gnosticism, which required each individual to learn how to spiritually and psychically develop his or her self. The teachers of the belief system were called Parfaits or ‘Perfected Ones’. But they regarded themselves as students as well as teachers. In a way we could compare the Cathar parfaits of medieval times with the light workers of today. In both situations the parfait of then was, and the light worker of today is, faced with vast opportunities to plant spiritual seeds into fertile soil. Both teach the knowledge and the logical nature of the knowledge in a way that appeals to the commonsense of each very different individual. Both then teach the techniques of meditation and self-development that allows the individual to transform blind faith in hearsay knowledge into ‘the knowing’ of self-gained experience. The Parfait, and the light worker then moves on because their part of the work is complete, the seed is planted and has germinated. Any more than this would be an intrusion.

The aim and method of light work as described here is and was the very opposite to the aim and method used by teachers of traditional established religions. What the light worker offers is offered to adults that are capable of independent thought. What the great established religions offer is often conditioned in to their followers at a very early impressionable and unquestioning age. This conditioned outlook usually becomes an integral part of the adult follower, thus to disagree with the teachers and the teachings is to also disagree with God. The Cathar beliefs began to spread beyond southern France and to take root far and wide. To the Holy Roman Church this heretical belief was akin to the spread of a virulent epidemic that had to be ruthlessly eradicated. Many books have described in graphic, grisly detail the Holy Crusade sent by the Holy Church of Rome to ruthlessly cleanse this heresy from southern and south western France.

In forty years the Holy Crusaders reduced the prosperous Land of the Cathars to a smoking plundered ruin. With ruthless efficiency seldom if ever equalled by the Nazi Gestapo the Crusade was immediately followed by a hundred years of intensive witch-hunt tactics by the Holy Inquisition. As a result the Holy Church of Rome achieved its purpose. The Cathar epidemic was wiped out and the Cathar people of southern France entered the misery of the dark ages alongside the rest of Europe. That’s enough French history so now let’s look at the effect upon the countless individuals that died during that mindless religious purge of a population, because this is where Yvonne and I found a part of our niche.

The Cathar Parfaits both, men and women, knew exactly what they were teaching. As we do they understood and accepted the concept of reincarnation, and had a clear understanding of what followed physical death. The seekers taught by the parfaits also gained this clear understanding. This meant that during the purge all that had this understanding could face without fear what comes after physical death. They weren’t supermen or superwomen, and they cringed from physical pain just as we would, but, like us, they had no fear of the afterlife. The problem with the Holy Crusade and the Holy Inquisitorial witch-hunt tactics was this. The Crusaders, mainly interested in plunder, indiscriminately massacred whole populations. The Holy Inquisition had to justify its own existence with results measured in numbers of condemned heretics. Anyone could be denounced and condemned as, Cathar Belief believers no matter whether they were or not. As a result countless victims then faced physical death whilst also filled with terror of what lies beyond death.

Then just like today, for many death and what lies beyond, was a taboo subject. This avoided subject was and is taboo because the majority of people lacked and still lack the precise knowledge of what follows physical death. During their present lifespan they are born without this knowledge and no one around them wants to talk about it or seems to know anything about it either. As a result many people take with them to their graves a garbled fear-filled version of what come after death. It is this fear based in ignorance that traps a soul in the Inter-life zone that lies between physical existence and the achieved astral level of that soul. In this blood-soaked, haunted land of trapped souls we found our niche, the rescue and release of trapped souls. During our years of drawing down and anchoring ‘Light’ in France, in our ancient two-seater farm car we have followed the trail of the crusaders and have released many souls that had remained trapped by their own fears and uncertainties.

We use the familiar term ‘trapped soul’ but really in any context it is easy to forget that a soul is a very real person that has for whatever reason departed from his or her physical body. In all other respects he or she is just the same human being as before. Previous to this life this soul has lived countless lives in the physical. Each life lived has added to his or her vast personal store of accumulated experience and spiritual evolvement. The ongoing accumulation of this vast store is the means by which each soul evolves to ever-higher levels of the astral vortex.

Often the soul’s achieved astral level is depicted as a brilliant light ahead that the disembodied soul has only to choose to enter and to reclaim as his or her right. Nothing could be simpler unless during this soul’s last physical life he or she has succumbed to the tendency to allow self to be devalued both, by others and by self. This tendency is non-physical but deeply ingrained and therefore often accompanies the self-devalued soul into the Interlife Zone.

Faced with but not aware that it is his or her, own glorious light, this soul may feel too intimidated to dare to feel permitted to enter it. Instead the soul backs away to then create a safe refuge out of memories. The soul remains immersed or trapped in those memories, in the timelessness of the Interlife Zone. A psychic such as Yvonne is able to sense the presence of the trapped soul. Yvonne then gently and respectfully enters the refuge to restore the soul’s self-confidence. Yvonne does this by showing the soul the true nature of the light. Often the soul will then allow Yvonne to lead him or her towards the light. Part of the rescue release process often requires Yvonne to listen to the story and the fears of this unhappy soul. Often the story is revealed to Yvonne in the form of thought images of the life and times of this trapped person, other aspects of the niche that we found also involved Yvonne’s ability to accompany a soul whilst receiving images from that soul; past-lives regression therapy.

With this aspect the souls are in the physical and are clients that have visited Yvonne so that they may re-experience some of their past-lives. With rescue release work Yvonne encourages and leads the trapped soul. With PLR therapy Yvonne encourages the client to take the lead. Each session is tape recorded for the recumbent client to describe what he or she the client is experiencing, this even though Yvonne is able to psychically ‘see’ what the client is psychically ‘seeing’ and ‘re-experiencing’. This ability of Yvonne’s to ‘see’ is not affected by distance. Our postal, Soul Readings and personal past-lives information service evolved and is offered for the benefit of seekers all over the world.

My role during our several years in France has been that of an intuitive writer. Over that time span I have ‘received’ (I assume via my higher self) information in a simple, clear, and logical form related to the ascension process. Often this information may contradict the current ideas and latest theories about the purpose of the ascension process. For example, as we all realize, the light worker’s task is twofold. Part is to continuously work on self, clearing old emotional blockages to allow more and more, soul light to overflow from the light worker onto unaware, un-awakened, people. This is natural, uplifting, soul-to-soul, communication that needs no words. Words are needed however when the radiated-upon, awakened soul then feels drawn to seek. Now the new seeker demands to know where he or she fits in when faced with the confusion of familiar to us all offerings of both, the new-age scene, and of established religions.

In our writings Yvonne and I have tried to provide a clear and logical picture of an energy structure. This is a structure of very real energy. The structure includes and leads from a Creator’s mind, down through every level of evolvement. It leads all the way down to the unaware life force that for now exists as microscopic life forms made up of a few atoms made of the same energy, anywhere in the physical universe.

Some new-age people choose to believe that originally humans descended from the Angelic levels, and descended into physical existence to be able to experience separation. They go on to suggest that having had the experience it is now time for humans to ascend and return to those Angelic levels. The suggestion may be valid but to a new seeker it would appear to be extremely vague and to totally ignore the undeniable presence of all ever-evolving life force that exists amid physical matter. This has to include the life force from the microscopic and upwards that has yet to evolve to the human level and beyond. Otherwise none of it makes sense. We could make this article fill many pages. In fact we have written full-length books that are available and that fully explore this logical structure. In the limited space available we will simply conclude by urging all light workers / spiritual teachers, to keep their teachings as simple as possible when offering guidance to new seekers. Confusion is generated in the minds of newcomers when they are offered an incomplete picture of the descension process followed by a blurred and vaguely described purpose and outcome of the ascension process. If you’d like to know more about our beliefs and our writings, or wish to make use of our psychic services, or even feel that in some way you can help us, feel free to contact us via this website.

David and Yvonne Brittain

Note: David and Yvonne continuously drew down and anchored the light in France for 15 years from July 1991 until October 2006 when they returned to their homeland England where they continue to do their spiritual work from Walton on the Naze a small seaside resort in Essex. Donations great or small would be gratefully received and would enable us to continue to spread the knowledge of the Ascension Process.

 

Ascension Doubt Blues

ASCENSION DOUBT BLUES

It seems so long ago: All that excitement, spreading throughout the New-Age World about the Ascension Process: To ascend, and entirely by our own efforts. Neither Lord Sananda, nor Eric Klein, through whom Lord Sananda channelled, made any pretence that the information was new or original. Far from it, what was offered was very ancient knowledge. This is knowledge that has, from time to time during Man’s long history, been offered; always at Mankind’s then current level of understanding. Once more in the early nineteen nineties we were offered that knowledge again: That time hopefully at our level of understanding.

Our physical bodies to fill with Light as we individually ascend to the Ascended Master Level and above. Surely even for New-Age seekers with the sketchiest scientific knowledge, this isn’t too difficult to comprehend? All that is needed is to combine knowledge of the process with what is every-day common knowledge already as we approach the year 2012. No one needs to be a scientific genius to know that if we insist on regarding physical matter as something solid, we are fooling ourselves. Scientists have proved that all physical matter is really structured from energies compelled to whirl in space-enclosing orbits so convincingly that the whirling energies create an illusion of solidity when they combine as atoms in great numbers. We admit that Jesus would have had great difficulty explaining sub-atomic realities to the Multitude: But in this day and age, as Lord Sananda, He probably thought it wouldn’t be necessary. All that is required is to give it a little clarity of thought.

On the one hand we have priests whom have always insisted that our non-physical Creator created our physical universe, though they can’t tell us how. On the other hand, our scientists have proved that physical matter really is controlled energy, though they can’t tell us what controls the energies, nor from where the energies arrive. So that dumps it squarely in the lay-person’s lap. Though they would never admit it, scientists have shown us how our Creator used the power of intelligence to control energies of self to create and continually re-create our physical universe, and of course this includes our physical bodies. It isn’t such a difficult mental leap to deduce what Lord Sananda was actually telling us. It is the INTELLIGENCE of each individual human being that will remove and replace our Creator’s control of the basic energy structure of each human physical body.

It is important to understand that Ascension is nothing to do with physical bodies glowing with light. When you ascend: Where you ascend to, you will have evolved beyond the need for a physical body. It is the full control of the basic energy that structures your body that you will need. At the moment everything you have including your body, is borrowed from your Creator’s energies, but it is necessary to think beyond Ascension. We hear vague mention of our Creator’s Great Plan that as God’s Children we are part of, what is this plan?

During our many physical lives, when we become parents, we fully expect our children to grow and mature into adults who will become our equals. If our Creator is our parent, what does that parent expect from us, eternally to be children, or to mature and evolve to our Creator’s adult level? All of this is food for thought, especially for those who believe that each unique human will eventually return to, and become part of, a central “Me” that we now regard as our Creator. This belief is based on the unproved assumption that Our Creator is the only creator, whose Creation is the only creation.

Equally valid is the unproved assumption that our Creator is part of a process of Creators. That in fact our Creator also was created by a Creator, and then had to evolve to the Creator Level in that Creator’s Creation. Do give this idea some thought because it means that our Creator has in mind greater plans for our future as individuals, than the roles of applauding, worshipping Christian audiences or as a bunch of memories for that central “Me” to reminisce about. Also it would make sense of our need of our body’s energy structure after our individual Ascension. This energy structure donated from our Creator’s energies will become our own energy supply; independent of our Creator’s energies. This would make sense if the plan is for us all to be independent unique creators in our own hard-earned right. The authors admit that these are large-sized, intimidating thoughts, but then that is what free-thinking is all about, isn’t it? It means we don’t meet our Creator on our knees. We meet as adults. It will be a loving relationship between independent son/daughter and parent. It will be a relationship in which we have evolved and matured to the Creator Level to be greeted as very special, trusted, unique, beloved friends.

The intention behind the Great Plan could be that INDIVIDUALLY, after that greeting, we leave our Creator’s Creation behind to enable us to continue the work of replacing the energies of Chaos with our own unique version of Creation. After all, how many creators does our Creator’s own Creation need? We admit that these are intimidating thoughts for those who feel safer hidden in the crowd scene. But the clues are all around us if we will only leave the restrictions of the crowd scene to see them. One clue: The re-emergence in the consciousness of Mankind of the belief that Planet Earth is an intelligent living being.

The next mental leap is to believe the entire physical universe is an intelligent living being. The leap is less difficult when we come nearer home to recall that our universe is structured from similar energy as is our own physical body. Each of us has a metabolism that plods on, doing its job to the best of its ability. Providing our scintillating intelligence hasn’t interfered in any way, each organ, each corpuscle, each enzyme, each atom, each sub-atomic particle, works at its task, never competing. Unconsciously aiming for complete harmony and balance for the entire metabolism. We seldom have to think about it. Whether we are asleep or awake our metabolism just plods on. We could take the comparison a stage further:

Imagine what would happen if those tiny organelles, called Mitochondria; that inhabit and power each living cell of our body, evolved consciousness, freewill, and individual intelligence. All Hell would break loose in our metabolism. Harmony and balance would be replaced by chaos and misery whilst all of those Mitochondria learnt individually how to use and control their intelligence. Painfully each of us could only wait until each organelle had learnt through hard experience, that Harmony and Balance requires co-operation, but is far better and far more logical than the chaos and selfishness of competition. Our comparison makes sense when we can think of our freewill endowed conscious aware intelligence as a non-physical thing that has an existence separate but amid our physical metabolism.

Planet Earth is the unconscious physical metabolism of slumbering intelligent Mother Earth. The physical universe is the unconscious metabolism of slumbering Mother Universe: Both of who are intelligent enough not to interfere with the unconscious workings of their metabolism. All goes well. All is harmony and Balance, until…until…until the Non-physical life-force in that universe, on that planet or planets, develops and evolves individual human, freewill-endowed aware, conscious Intelligence. Then the chaos and misery begins and will continue until we individually learn the lesson of Co-operation, Harmony and Balance.

Another clue: The process of “thinking” is so effortless we never give it thought. Yet in our lives, without thought nothing happens. To lift the rock takes effort. The thought intention is effort-less. But without the thought the rock stays where it is. The thought of one man or woman can transform the thinking of Mankind. To THINK is to use the power of Creative energy supplied by our Creator. We have the freewill to use that power creatively or destructively. Whichever way we use it, we learn eventually that harmony and balance is the only acceptable way of life. We take the effortlessness of thinking for granted, but we must understand thought to be able to Ascend; after we ascend: To think it is to create it. Before we ascend there is a delay between “thinking” it and creating it whilst the thought cranks it way through the atoms of our brain. The purpose of that delay is to allow us TIME to reconsider the quality of that thought before it becomes an action.

We have mentioned Comfort Zone Thinking. What is it? We all tend to exist in our comfort zone of thought. The zone contains all the thoughts, ideas, and people we are comfortable with. It is familiar and thus effortless: No Brain Strain! But if we choose to enter the realms of, say, Philosophical profundities, or the intricacies of higher mathematics, we would have no choice but to leave our Comfort Zone of thought. Until we got used to the strain of higher thought it would be a struggle to remain on that high level. This illustrates the fact that the focus of your Intelligence can ascend or descend to different levels or wavelengths of thought. You have a comfortable level that takes effort to leave, until you become comfortable on that higher level. Then that higher level becomes your Comfort Zone; until you strive again. The same applies in Meditation. Many people at first find it takes effort simply because they are re-tuning their mind to receive ever-higher wavelengths or levels of thought. So now we must try to comprehend why so much striving and tiring mental effort is required.

Our description of the sub-atomic world earlier was not intended to bore you. It was intended to bring that general knowledge forward in your mind. To help you to realise that despite appearances, each and every one of us is an intelligent energy with a focal point we each regard as ME. Our Creator also is an intelligent energy; no doubt with a ME focal point. The only difference between our Creator and us is that for now we must exist amid energies that are compelled to structure their selves into atoms. On the Creator’s level of existence the energies are not structured into atoms. Yet despite the fact that those atoms of energy build themselves into the bodies we all must clump around in, it does not prevent us from using our creativity, just as our Creator uses creativity. It only limits us. So to understand the striving and effort we must also try to understand what it is that limits us.

Let’s return to that rock for a moment. We all know that no matter how strong our beliefs in the powers of ESP that rock won’t move until someone applies either muscles or machinery to the task. Priests insist that our Creator is non-physical: No muscles, no machinery yet our Creator created everything that exists in non-physical and physical Creation. Consider the vast machinery and huge amounts of powerful energy required for nuclear researchers to artificially create short-lived sub-atomic particles. Go on to recall that our Creator only had to use the power of thought to control energies of self to create. Then we begin to realise how we all have under-estimated the enormous power of thought, the power of our Creator’s thoughts, the power of our thoughts as individuals, and the combined power when Mankind thinks as one.

Below is a reflection of above. What we see here are the same energies; the energies of our Creator. We also see a descending scale of power-levels applied to those energies between our Creator’s level and our physical level. So this gives us a clue as to what limits us, and why we always have to strive to overcome those limits. Here is a familiar example from domestic life as a comparison: To run a vacuum cleaner or an electric oven you would use the full power of mains electricity. But to run your little transistor radio off of main electricity you would need a plug-in transformer, or your radio would burn out. If you examined inside the transformer you would find a continuous coil of wire. The mains full-power follows the wire to your radio. In doing so, it has to work against itself; reducing its power-level all the way down to a level that wouldn’t harm a torch bulb.

So now we must find out what our Creator used as a transformer. A transformer that would safely reduce those energies in power-level, and would also be the mechanism that would convert those reduced energies into spinning atoms. We don’t have to look far. Most of us have heard of the Astral Levels, often known as the Astral Vortex. Instead of mains electricity compelled to follow a coil of wire: High-powered Creator energies would be compelled to form and travel down, a spherical vortex. The energy would work against itself to reach the centre of the vortex where it could only spin and then drop into a lower level. So here we have a bridge between physical and non-physical: The sub-atomic level.

Often our little domestic transformer is versatile enough to offer us a selection of voltages: For example; 12v, 9v, 7.5v, 6v, 4.5, 3v. This allows us to use appliances that can handle these higher voltages. For each of these different settings the coil is tapped into further and further along the coiled wire, because the further we move along the wire the higher the voltage. But as we know, if we use these higher voltages for our 3 volt torch bulb it will burn out. All of this is obvious, but we must apply the same thinking to the function of the Astral Vortex. Those who can accept the concept of reincarnation will know that our individual existences take the form of a pendulum that swings backwards and forwards between Astral and Physical. We must then expand that thought to accept that every form of life force; from the most simple life forms up to and including the human “Me” level: All experience this pendulum existence. When the poor old worn out body of a Human, or a Flea, can no longer carry the Life force, That Life force returns to the Astral for a while.

So now we must bring together three seemingly diverse fields. From the Flea level and below, up to the Human level we see a series of ascending levels each more complex than the one below it. Charles Darwin described these levels in terms of Physical Evolution as the driving force. But atoms don’t care about evolving. As part of a star, or a fingernail or a needle, it’s all the same to atoms. So the driving force must apply to the life force to always evolve higher and higher: With the accompanying need for more complex physical bodies. The second field is that of Spirituality. The ancient eastern belief systems tell us that the Astral Vortex Level we will attain between physical lives is governed by our total spiritual progress gained during our many physical and astral sojourns, to date.

Our third field we have already discussed: The Astral Vortex, with its levels, as a transformer that reduces and converts highest power-level Creator energies into low power-level atoms. Elsewhere we have written at length about the introduction of unconscious life force into the physical universe; via the Astral Vortex. Here we will limit ourselves to only mention that the Life force could have only arrived from the levels where the Creator energies are unreduced in power level. There is no where else they could have originated from. This must mean the unconscious life force could exist in those high power-levels: But to enter the physical existence amid low-power atoms, the power-level of the life force had to be greatly reduced.

Most of this very high power would have been shed in the Fifth Dimension, and would await the eventual Ascension of that life force. We know this as our Higher Self. The rest would be shed as the life force descended the vortex to await thresholds into physical life. At first as simple life forms that would survive or not. If not, the life force would return to the Astral at its lowest power-levels to await another suitable threshold. In this way the life force would commence its long climb. A climb that one-day will allow it to escape from the vortex. But before that day arrives the life force must keep on evolving until it evolved individual, human ”Me” Intelligence. At that point the evolutionary driving force of Mother Earth is replaced by Human Freewill choice. Unlike the animals, Man can choose to evolve or not. But the evolvement then is not of the body, but the “Me” Intelligence.

Now we are able to bring those three fields together: To understand why we have to strive, and what it is that limits us. From our description, it will be obvious that Evolution in the Darwin sense, Spiritual Progress in the Eastern Belief system sense, and increasing our capacity to exist and function on ever-higher power-levels of Creator energies. All three are exactly the same thing. When you enter the silence during your meditation: All mundane thought ignored as far as possible. In fact you are passively opening yourself to allow higher power-levels of Creator energy to flow through your being. Higher power-levels than you are used to normally in your Comfort Zone power-level of thought. Every time you quietly meditate, you are trying to raise your capacity, so that “Me” the focal point of your intelligence can move to higher power-levels.

Everything that is positive and good in our existence, is part of those Creator energies that flow
through us via the vortex. Those energies bring the patterns of everything we know. They also carry the virtues from our Creator to flow through us. So when we feel compassion it is flowing through us, not from us. But we feel it passing through us to where it is needed. It is energy. Negativity is when, in our lack of clear thought and understanding, we block or distort the flow. Spiritual progress is not aiming for goodness. It is more to do with clear thinking that will enable us to understand our ways of thinking and our selves. This is what Lord Sananda meant by “clearing the blockages”, because it is those blockages that will restrict the flow of those energies. You don’t need to try to be virtuous. Understand the blockages and then remove them. Then the virtues with their ever-higher power-levels will lift you clear of the Vortex.

The title of our article is ASCENSION DOUBT BLUES…. Yes it is a long time since the Klein Tapes. No. No one to our knowledge has yet ascended. And yet we all have learnt so much about ourselves. If we are honest, can we truthfully state we have cleared all blockages? We know we couldn’t; not even just from this present life. Then when we contemplate all that accumulated emotional scar tissue from all those past lives, we wonder if we’ll ever make the grade. For all that we’ll sure keep trying. There’s no going back. Where could we go back to?

In our article we have emphasised Intelligence and energies because that is what individually we all are. All are at different stages of development and speeds of learning. All are at different power-level capacities. Each of us is linked to our Higher Self by a trail of energy that we had to leave behind to be able to descend the energy windings of the vortex. We could liken that trail to our personal wire through the transformer and our individual intelligence is the appliance that must always strive to follow that wire: This even though we know the wire increases in energy power-level as we move along it. It can’t be rushed, and only you can do it, in your own timing. It is you who has to live with the discomfort of consciously and determinedly rising above your Comfort Zone level of thought.

For us all there are several stages of learning after we ascend to the Ascended Masters, fifth dimension level, but before we together with our twin aspect ascend through and then above the angelic/teachers’ levels to then achieve the perfection level of our Creator. Meanwhile the energy control achieved by our efforts as individuals would allow us when appropriate to convert our energy into physical form as a means to spiritually uplift those in the physical, still striving to ascend.

We’d like to be able to tell you that the Ascended Masters or ‘Scottie’ from Star Trek will wave a wand or press a button to “Beam you up”. But there is no wand, nor a button. Instead, as it should be, there is UNIQUE YOU FULLY EQUIPPED TO TRIGGER YOUR OWN ASCENSION IF YOU WILL ONLY TRUST YOURSELF ENOUGH NOT TO FEEL YOU MUST RELY ON OTHERS WHO YOU MISTAKENLY THINK, KNOW BETTER THAN YOU DO.

You could regard dumping your Ascension Doubt Blues, as an exercise in blockage clearing.
