Is there anything special about other lifetimes we should learn?

THE MOST BENEFIT IS DERIVED FROM LEARNING ABOUT A PRIOR TIME WHEN THE LESSONS WERE NOT LEARNED, AND NEED TO BE POINTED OUT IN ORDER TO AVOID REPEATING THE STORY. TO LEARN AND NOT REPEAT A LIFETIME THROUGH LEARNING IS USEFUL. TO SIMPLY PLAY WITH A PREVIOUS LIFE LIVED IS NOT HELPFUL AND A WASTE OF YOURS AND MY TIME.

An “automatic typing” session follows.

Do you have anything to say about Robert Burton [the leader of the Gurdjieff group out of which several of the group came]? I feel I owe him much.

I DO NOT PERSONALLY KNOW THE MAN ROBERT BURTON. IF HE OPENED YOUR EYES AND EARS THAT IS GOOD. THE THEORIES HE AND I TEACH HAVE BEEN AROUND FOR MANY GENERATIONS. IT HAS BEEN AN ENDLESS TEACHING IN TIME. IF YOU DECIDED TO LEAVE, IT WAS TIME. DO NOT LIVE IN THE PAST WITH “SHOULD”.

In that teaching there were teachings of certain Bodytypes, and influences of planets. Is this true?

YOU ARE UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF ALL PLANETS, AS THEY ARE IN YOU. THE PLANETS OR PLANET THAT CONTROLS YOU THE MOST STRONGLY THEREFORE IS THE MOST STRONG IN YOU, WAS YOUR TYPE. I ASSUME I HAVE THAT RIGHT. IT IS TRUE IF THAT IS THE WAY IT WAS STATED. THE TYPES ARE A GENERALIZATION OF THE COMMON THINGS, HABITS, PERSONALITY TRAITS IN MOST PEOPLE, AND CAN RESEMBLE ASTROLOGY. IT CAN BE WELL USED IF NOT IN IMAGINATION.

Which planet am I most influenced by?

YOU ARE MOST INFLUENCED BY VENUS, SOMETIMES MERCURY. WHEN HE IS JUMPING RIGHT IN THERE AND USES A SUGGESTION I HAVE GIVEN HIM, HE IS IN MERCURY, ALL RIGHT. WHEN HE IS SITTING AND EATING HE IS IN VENUS. HE IS MORE VENUS, THOUGH HE FOLLOWS INSTRUCTIONS LIKE A MERCURY. THAT CAN GIVE ME AN EGO PROBLEM. HE REACTS SO SUDDENLY.

Is it useful to use this information? Can it be used to take us to higher states or through several Bodytypes in one lifetime?

IT IS USEFUL TO USE THE TYPES, SO THAT YOU MAY SEE THINGS IN YOURSELF THAT NEED WORK, OR THINGS IN ANOTHER PLANET CONTROL TYPE THAT YOU WISH TO HAVE, SUCH AS PATIENCE, ENERGY, ETC. IT IS A GOOD EXERCISE FOR THE MIND, AND LEAVES YOU OPEN IF YOU USE IT RIGHT, AND CAN LEAD TO THE ALLOWING OF A HIGHER STATE.

Does what we are doing now have anything to do with the return of Christ?

NOT EXACTLY. THE PURPOSE OF YOUR BEING HERE IS NOT TO FIND ONLY CHRIST BUT THE KNOWLEDGE OF HOW TO BE. CHRIST IS IN THE PICTURE, BUT HE IS NOT THE TOTAL ALL — HE WAS A GOOD TEACHER. IF YOU ARE SEEKING ONLY CHRIST, WHY DON’T YOU GO TO CHURCH?

Was Robert Burton’s prediction right about California falling into the ocean?

THAT STATEMENT HAS BEEN MADE BY MANY PROPHETS PREVIOUSLY, AND HAS BEEN SPREAD BY MANY NON-PROPHETS AS WORDS OF TEACHING. AS I GET IT, CALIFORNIA WILL NOT FALL INTO THE OCEAN AS SUCH, BUT WILL HAVE LAND CHANGES AND BE DIFFERENT THAN YOU KNOW IT NOW. I CANNOT SEE A PLACE AS BIG AS THAT JUST FALLING INTO THE OCEAN, BUT THAT COULD BE MY PROBLEM.

Does Tomas have any comments on the subject of ”love”?

LOVE IS ALWAYS CHANGING, GROWING, REAPPEARING, SHARING. THERE ARE NO ADEQUATE WORDS TO DESCRIBE THE PHENOMENON. THE COMPLETE, UNSELFISH, WHOLE GIVING OF SELF, FIRST TO YOURSELF, AND THEN TO ONE OR MORE, IS LOVE. THE DEFINING OF LOVE ALSO TAKES AWAY FROM THE ESSENCE OF WHAT THE SPIRIT IS.

THE LOVE SUBJECT IS ONE OF THE MOST DISCUSSED, ALONG WITH SEX, WHERE YOU ARE. THE TWO BELONG TOGETHER, AND YOU CAN HAVE SEX WITHOUT LOVE AND THE SAME APPLIES BACKWARDS. THE DEEP, LOVING FEELING IS TO BE WITH YOURSELF COMFORTABLY, AND THEN WITH ANOTHER. LOVE, ONCE ATTAINED THERE, IS POSITIVE, AND WILL NOT LEAVE. IT IS ON AN EXTREMELY HIGH PLANE, WHICH TAKES MUCH WORK TO ACHIEVE. LOVE IS REACHING INTO THE SOUL. UNTIL THERE IS ENOUGH RICHNESS IN EACH SOUL, THE CREAM CANNOT BE GIVEN TO ANOTHER. IF THE CUP IS EMPTY OF LOVE, IT CANNOT BE SHARED. EMPTINESS IS NOT ABLE TO BE SHARED. AFTER THE CUP, OR BODY, HAS LOVE, IT CAN BE SHARED. I WILL TRY AND GIVE MORE ON THIS.

LOVE ITSELF IS A CONTINUATION. WITH DEEPEST LOVE, LOVE ON A HIGHER PLANE, EACH ARE “BEING”. THERE IS NO QUESTION OF LIFE OR LIVING, JUST TO BE, AND BECAUSE OF LOVE, BE TOGETHER. LOVE IS ONE ESSENCE PIECE THAT WAS A GIFT, AND IS TO BE USED TO ATTAIN HIGHER THINGS. WITHOUT THE COMPLETE, DEEPEST EMOTIONAL LOVE, HIGHER PLANES CANNOT BE ATTAINED. THE LOVE IS PART OF THE PUZZLE OF THE WHOLE SELF, AND IS AN INTEGRAL PART OF BEING. WITH LOVE THE SOUL HAS BEEN MADE COMPLETE, AND IS THEN ALLOWED TO GROW. LOVE IS A LARGE STEP TO HIGHER THINGS. IT IS AN EMOTIONAL REALITY AND SHOULD BE SOUGHT. YOUR STEPS PAST IT CAN BE GLORIOUS.
