 April 14, 1974



Present: RC and SC, RH and AH and CH.

We had a discussion as to where we were going next, and if people were satisfied with the large meetings. We were started out on a planning octave, headed for an implementation octave, and it is seemingly petering out. There are no tasks in our group, and people pop in and pop out. There is a loose commitment of people, and we cannot plan on anything. When one tries to present the material to new people, they have their own thing and want to teach their thing, and think this is Satan’s work because it has to do with reincarnation. One of us saw the opposition to spread the logos coming from Christians. Christ was crucified because he had a new idea.

RH: I cannot understand mass psychology when it comes to religion.

SC: That is the only way I can reach Emotional Center, through a group high.

RH: Is Michael ready to turn us over to the technology and science Entity, as ST is working?

IF YOU WISH THIS, IT IS AVAILABLE. TO ASSIGN TASKS ON AN INDIVIDUAL BASIS REQUIRES WHOLEHEARTED COMMITMENT ON THE PART OF THE ONE ASSIGNED. THESE TASKS ARE NOT EASY AND OFTEN APPEAR DISTASTEFUL AT FIRST GLANCE. THE LADY, S.T., IS NOW EMOTIONALLY STRONG ENOUGH TO SHARE HER TREMENDOUS WEALTH OF PSYCHIC EMOTIONAL POWER WITH THOSE WHO DESIRE THIS SPECIAL HELP. THE METHODS HAVE BEEN OUTLINED FOR YOU NOW WITHIN THE CONFINES OF THIS TEACHING, BUT THIS TEACHING IS OF THE SORT WHERE THE IMPLEMENTATION MUST BE SELF-INITIATED. IN THE OTHER TEACHING, INDIVIDUAL GUIDANCE CAN BE OBTAINED THROUGH VERY LENGTHY SESSIONS WITH THE SOURCE WITH THE FOCUS UPON ONE INDIVIDUAL, WHERE IN THIS TYPE OF TEACHING THE FOCUS IS ON THE GROUP AS A WHOLE AND ABOUNDS IN GENERALITIES. IT IS POSSIBLE NEVERTHELESS TO GROW WITHIN THIS TEACHING AS IT IS WITHIN THE TEACHING OF THE MAN, R.B., BUT IT MEANS MUCH CULLING OF THE MATERIAL AND CONCENTRATION ON ALL THE WORK OUTLINED SO FAR. WE DO HAVE CONSIDERABLE INSIGHT INTO INDIVIDUAL NEEDS, BUT THEN, SO DO YOU ALL. YOU DISCUSS IT NEEDLESSLY AND REACH THE SAME CONCLUSIONS USING TERMINOLOGY WE WOULD NOT CHOOSE, BUT THE MEANING IS THE SAME. THE CHOICE IS YOUR STRONGEST BARRIER TO SUCCESS RIGHT NOW; OR TO BE MORE EXPLICIT, YOUR DENIAL OF THE FACT THAT THE CHOICE RESTS ALWAYS WITH YOU. WE HAVE SUGGESTED TO YOU ALL VARIOUS METHODS BY WHICH OTHERS HAVE ACHIEVED SPIRITUAL GROWTH. THIS IS ALL THAT WE ARE EMPLOYED TO DO. IF AND WHEN YOU MAKE THE CHOICE TO FOLLOW THIS PATH, THE PROTECTION IS THERE.

RH: What are they speaking of? Protection from what?

THE ONE WHO CHOOSES THE PATH TOWARD SPIRITUAL GROWTH WILL BE PROVIDED FOR.

RH: Like moving to Oregon? Not worrying about where the money will come?

THE MOVE TO OREGON IS ONLY ONE SUGGESTION. THERE HAVE BEEN OTHERS.

RH: Like what?

RC: Separate from the mainstream. The power spots feel good when I’m there, though.

HOW LONG HAS IT BEEN SINCE YOU MADE A REALLY THOROUGH COMPARISON BETWEEN YOUR OWN REACTIONS TO DISAPPOINTMENTS, LIFE CRISES, ETC., WITH REACTIONS OF THOSE NOT IN A TEACHING?

CH: I see a change in you, Dad. I feel much more love from you.

RH: How do you [I] get out of the Repression Mode? It is so deeply imbedded in my daily habits. I repress people’s names and whether it is a beautiful day. How do you change? Is the Mode of Repression from past lives, or from a Number One Experience? You cannot go from one Mode or Goal or Chief Feature by yourself.

RC: I had these fantasies about having trouble with my neighbor, who has threatened me with a knife before, when I was building my fence today. It really tired me out with all the fantasies I had should he come out drunk again and become belligerent.

THE MAN, R, WAS OTHERWISE OCCUPIED. IT WAS REALLY STRANGE. HE HAD NO DESIRE TO DRINK TODAY.

RC: Did Michael have something to do with that?

WE DID SUGGEST TO HIM THAT SOBRIETY WOULD PAY OFF TODAY.

RH: What are we going to do with the group being so loose?

YOU CAN USE THIS FOR FRICTION [otherwise known as having your “buttons pushed”, which indicate your areas of non-agape] OR YOU CAN SUCCESSFULLY ELIMINATE IT ALTOGETHER BY GOING TO SMALLER SESSIONS ONLY.

RH: I do resent the dreadful trait in RB’s teaching which keeps KH from being friendly with us. When he told people to separate from their families it was because they were a drain of energy. We are not that bad and it hurts me quite deeply to be separated from her. What RB is doing is good for RB. He may be using people so that he can be isolated from life people.

THIS WILL CERTAINLY SOUND PLATITUDINOUS, BUT YOU CAN ONLY BE USED IF YOU ALLOW IT. THIS APPLIES SEXUALLY, FINANCIALLY, EMOTIONALLY AND ALL OTHER WAYS.

RH: I am used by my employer Kaiser Permanente. The people who are running it are in the Perseveration Mode. Will we be able to receive a way of changing?

YOU MAY DO THE WORK WITHIN THIS TEACHING, BUT IN ORDER TO DO SO, YOU MUST BE ABLE TO RECALL THE REASONS YOU CHOSE THE OFFENDING OVERLEAF, THE SAME WAY THE LADY S.T. DID, AND THIS MEANS FOLLOWING UP ON YOUR INTUITIVE DRIVES. THOSE COMING OUT OF THE REPRESSION MODE OFTEN DO SO EXPLOSIVELY AND WITH MUCH RESENTMENT OVER ALL THAT THEY HAVE MISSED. SOME OF THIS “SHOCK” THERAPY YOU WILL SEE SHOULD GIVE YOU CONSIDERABLE INSIGHT INTO WHERE THE WORK IS. (This could refer to the conferences in Las Vegas we are planning to attend on the “Art of Medicine” using 50 new diagnostic and therapeutic techniques, including encounter, aggressive, trilene, marathon, nude, group, crisis, electric sleep, primal, body image, existential, alpha wave, deprivation, and expectation therapies, and an introduction to Zen and Acupuncture.)

THE LADY, S.T., IS PRACTICING A FORM OF “PRIMAL” THERAPY. SHE JUST TAKES IT A STEP FARTHER.

CH: How can I get out of my Caution Mode?

THE ONLY WAY TO ALTER THIS IS AGAIN TO UNDERSTAND WHY YOU CHOSE IT IN THE FIRST PLACE. TO PHOTOGRAPH DELIBERATION OVER MUNDANE DECISIONS AND ATTEMPT TO ACT RATHER THAN TO THINK — WE KNOW OF NO BETTER WAY THAN TO BECOME DISGUSTED BY YOUR OWN PHOTOGRAPHS AND THEREBY BE LITERALLY FORCED OUT OF THE OVERLEAF.

RH: Are there clues to why CH, AH, and RC chose the Caution Mode?

QUITE OFTEN WHEN THE SOUL CHOOSES THE PASSION MODE, IT IS TO EXPERIENCE THE MONADS DEALING WITH INTERPERSONAL RELATIONSHIPS. THIS OFTEN LEADS TO EMOTIONAL EXHAUSTION ON THE PHYSICAL PLANE. THE NEED IS THERE TO NOT EXPERIENCE THIS AGAIN. OFTEN, TOO, THE RIBBONS ARE COMPLEX ENOUGH SO THAT THE RATHER BLAND MODES ARE NECESSARY TO ALL THOSE IN THE SEQUENCE WITH YOU TO COMPLETE THEIR OWN MONADS. THIS IS THE WAY IT IS WITH R.C., WHO CHOSE CAUTION IN ORDER TO ALLOW THREE SOULS THE ROOM TO MOVE. R.H. CHOSE REPRESSION BECAUSE OF THE EXPERIENCES OF LIFE AS AUGUST PIERRE (Renoir).

RH: When I was 37, was I in Passion? Was August Pierre (Renoir) in Passion?

THE MAN AUGUST PIERRE WAS IN THE PASSION MODE, YES. [At age 37,] YOUR REPRESSION LIFTED IN THE FACE OF CONTACT WITH HIGHER EMOTIONAL CENTER, AS IT ALWAYS WOULD.

RC: If I moved out of the Caution Mode, would this deny the other souls mentioned what they had to experience?

NO. TWO ARE NOW DEAD AND THE OTHER IS (busy) PHOTOGRAPHING HERSELF.

CH: Why did I choose Caution? I do not like it as I see it.

PRIMARILY BECAUSE YOU HAVE CHOSEN THE PASSION OR THE POWER MODE THREE OUT OF FOUR TIMES IN THE PAST.

Comment: She was probably emotionally exhausted.

RH: If we just go along reincarnating, it is O.K., but if we are in this teaching, we should be changing. It does not seem that Michael is getting us to be conscious or even Number Four [balanced and centered] people. Life goes on the same old dreary way, and it doesn’t appear that it will change.

RC: It sounds as if you are putting yourself down,

RH. No. That is just the way it is. I need more passion. It seems that RB was in a Power Mode, and he was extremely patient. He attracted people by his Level of Being. If one is to be a spreader of the logos, one has to be a high person, probably in an exalted Role. It bugs me to be told to bring new people, then they pop in and out.

RC: I feel we give the new people too much at one time and it scares them.

CH: They should be talked to before coming.

RH: RB never argued with anyone. He would say, “That is correct”, and then say what he had to say. We are attracting people by what the Ouija board tells them. We must demonstrate our own evolution before we can pass it on. I become impatient when people argue with me and want to teach me “the truth”. It is the nonverbal quality which attracts people.

SC: Belief is not required.

RH: RB had this charisma which make people want to be with him. What he has is worth emulating. He has total assurance in himself and does not need pats on the back. He had this peculiar way of not laughing out loud, but of covering his widely-opened mouth with his hand when people would say something he thought was funny.

THERE IS AN ALMOST AWESOME SADNESS IN THOSE GOING TOWARD SUBJECTIVE CONSCIOUSNESS [the karma-free transcendence accomplished by an adept]. THE MAN, JESUS, FELT THIS. THE INFINITE SOUL DOES NOT FEEL THE NEED TO EXPRESS MIRTH IN THIS FASHION. LAUGHTER IS A COVER UP — A NERVOUS HABIT, SO TO SPEAK — BUT IS ONE OF THE LAST TO GO.

RH: RB decided that I was not going to become conscious in this life and was not giving me attention. Maybe he was right and I may as well wait and go through the incarnations.

SC: I do not expect to become conscious in this life. If I do, that’s okay, but what I would like is to become less uptight in this life.

CH: My aim is to become conscious in this life.

RH: Michael has never said anything about Gurdjieff’s idea of being trapped.

SC: What they have said is that if you feel you are a victim of your Overleaves, you are.

RH: Are RC’s ticks from another life?

RC: ST’s entity said it would take a whole evening.

RH: Can’t we just have a yes or no answer to see if they are from this life or another one?

THE NERVOUS GRIMACES AROSE FROM ADOLESCENT EXPERIENCES IN THIS LIFE AND ARE DIRECTLY RELATED TO THE OPPOSITION OF THE ACCEPTANCE GOAL AND THE CHIEF FEATURE (Stubbornness).

RC: When I stayed at Lake Tahoe, they disappeared completely.

RH: How can I get out of Repression? It is stronger than agape.

WE KNOW OF ONLY ONE EFFECTIVE METHOD TO BREAK THE THREAD, AND THAT IS THROUGH A MARATHON TYPE OF EXPERIENCE WHERE THERE IS A TOTAL BREAKDOWN OF THE DEFENSES TO ALMOST THE PSYCHOTIC POINT.

RH: Where can this be obtained?

YOU CAN DO IT WITHIN THIS GROUP, OR YOU CAN REQUEST IT FROM THERAPISTS WHO CONDUCT THESE EXPERIENCES, BUT YOU MUST MAKE A CONTRACT WITH YOURSELF AT THE TIME THAT YOU WILL STICK IT OUT.

RH: I doubt that it would last more than one day. What do they mean, in this group?

WITH GROUP AGREEMENT, YES.

RH: I think RB was able to ignore or separate from the things in himself with which he was not happy, and he did not have to experience out the negativity.

THE MAN, R.B., CHOSE AN ALTERNATIVE COURSE, AND THAT WAS TO NEGATE THE PROBLEM AREAS RATHER THAN TO TRY TO HEAL THEM. THIS IS A VALID CHOICE, AND IT DOES WORK.

RH: To spread the logos as RB does, you must have a Level of Being to attract people. You must be integrated and mysterious.

YOU ALMOST HAVE TO HAVE SOME TYPE OF MYSTERY, YES — WE AGREE WITH THAT. MOST PEOPLE DO SEEK A TEACHING, AND THIS INCLUDES ORGANIZED RELIGION THAT INTRODUCES SOME INTRIGUE INTO THEIR LIVES. THE TEACHING, THEREBY, BECOMES EXCITING. MANY DO IT WITH GIMMICKS; OTHERS WITH WHAT YOU CALL CHARISMA. IT ONLY WORKS BECAUSE IT PROVIDES THAT SPECIAL HINT OF THE MYSTERIOUS REALM BEYOND THE FIVE SENSES TO WHICH YOU AS THE TEACHER HAVE ACCESS, AND THAT THEY CAN SOMEDAY HOPE TO GLIMPSE. WE ARE NOT OPPOSED TO THIS AS LONG AS THE TEACHER DOES NOT BEGIN TO BELIEVE IN HIS OWN MAGIC.

RH: To be a person such as RB or Yogananda seems so far off. Baba Ram Dass had power, too. Can an Artisan teach a King?

CH: It was said before that I was to lead. Is that in a spiritual way? KH, too?

BOTH OF YOU COULD; THE CHOICE IS YOURS. YES, IN A SPIRITUAL SENSE, AND, YES, YOU ARE RIGHT, R.H.: THOSE IN ORDINAL ROLES WOULD GAIN MORE FROM YOUR TEACHING, BUT THE MAJORITY OF MANKIND IS IN ORDINAL ROLES.

SC: There seems to be geographic concentrations of exalted Roles. In Michigan, I observed so many Baby Slaves, it must be a geographic thing.

RH: Enlightened persons must go into seclusion because I do not see them walking around. Why should that be? There are those who do not see the need for a second Messiah.

THE BLIND REFUSE TO SEE AS THE DEAF REFUSE TO HEAR. THIS TEACHING IS OFFERED TO ALL, INDISCRIMINATELY. IT IS OFFERED OVER AND OVER EACH TIME YOU LIVE ON THE PHYSICAL PLANE.

RH: They don’t see my point. Do you see my point?

AH: I wonder if there is any truth to what RB used to say, that if too many people woke up, there would be another catastrophe such as Atlantis. RB said the reason for Atlantis being destroyed was that too many people were conscious.

WE DO NOT AGREE WITH THAT. IT WOULD MERELY SPEED UP THE EVOLUTION ON THIS WORLD, BUT WOULD NOT AFFECT THE STELLAR EVOLUTION.

RH: Why are we created over and over?

CH: Why are we not created blessed with agape?

RH: That’s my beef with Michael and his crew — they are stingy with their grace.

RC: Maybe you’re not letting it come through.

SC: You’ve been hearing about it every time you’ve lived, and sooner or later, you’ll listen.

RH: I’m saying it is their choice to give us grace.

WE CAN ONLY AID YOU IN DEVELOPING THOSE SENSES AVAILABLE TO THE ESSENCE, BEYOND THOSE LIMITATIONS PLACED UPON THE PHYSICAL BODY. WE CANNOT GIVE YOU ANYTHING AGAINST YOUR WILL.

RH: Then is there no such thing as grace?

NOT THAT WE KNOW OF.

RH: Are there things we could have if we asked?

WE CAN HELP YOU TO FIND THEM WITHIN YOURSELVES. YOU ARE AS WELL ENDOWED AS WE ARE; WE JUST HAVE LEARNED HOW TO TAP THE RESOURCES.

RH: Does Michael mediate?

SOMETHING SIMILAR, YES.

The question at this point went unrecorded.

NOT USUALLY THIS OVERTLY, THAT IS CORRECT. MOST CRAFTSMEN ARE INSPIRED THOUGH BY VERY SUBTLE NUDGES FROM THOSE ORDINAL ENTITIES.

RH: It is unclear to me what I am to do, and that is why I keep doing what I do.

SC: They suggested you go into solitude for a weekend retreat and you nearly flipped.

CH: Has any female ever made it consciously?

THERE HAVE BEEN CONSCIOUS FEMALES, YES, BUT NO GREAT TEACHERS HAVE BEEN FEMALE. THIS IS NOT TO SAY IT CANNOT BE; IT IS SIMPLY THAT FEMALES HAVE CHOSEN TO SUBORDINATE THEMSELVES IN THIS CULTURE.

Comment: Queen Elizabeth did not subordinate herself to anyone. She was supposed to have been conscious.

RH then asked each of the others how they set goals for themselves. He also asked if they felt entrapped. In turn, he was asked, to which he replied that he did feel trapped in not being able to emote and not feel passion. He expressed discouragement at not having changed.

THE GROWTH IS OCCURRING, R.H. YOU ARE REPRESSING YOUR OBSERVATION EVEN.

RH: What to do is not clear. I’m not a teacher.

OTHERS WOULD LIVE BY YOUR EXAMPLE.

RH: It is still unclear. Do I keep on being a doctor?

YES. IF THAT IS YOUR CHOICE.

THE ROLE CAN BE MADE INTO A TEACHING ONE. YOU DO NOT HAVE TO HAVE AN ORGANIZED SCHOOL OF YOUR OWN. IT IS ENOUGH TO BE IN ONE TO EFFECTIVELY AFFECT THE OPPORTUNITY FOR OTHERS AROUND YOU TO LOOK AT THEIR OVERLEAVES AND BEGIN TO UNDERSTAND. EVOLUTION ON THIS WORLD HAS BEEN SLOW AND NOW IS PICKING UP SOMEWHAT — STILL SLOW THOUGH WHEN COMPARED TO, FOR INSTANCE, SOLEAL’S WORLD.

RH: What do they mean, “choose to negate problems”?

SC: By admitting you have an insoluble problem and quit dealing with it. There are insoluble mathematics problems. They can go into infinity and never be solved.

RH: But human problems are different.

SC: If the problem is a karmic one, you would be growing in other areas and eventually you would solve it.
