What is the SRG on ______: Mature Scholar, Saturn-Jovial, Idealist, Arrogance, Observation, Spiritualist?

THIS IS A FINAL LEVEL MATURE SCHOLAR IN GROWTH, YES, A SPIRITUALIST IN OBSERVATION, MOSTLY JOVIAL, SOME SATURN, WITH A CHIEF FEATURE OF STUBBORNNESS, EMOTIONAL PART OF INTELLECTUAL.

What is the SRG on ______: a Jovia1, Priest, early Old, Skeptic, Growth, Caution, Intellectual part of Emotional Center?

A SECOND LEVEL OLD PRIEST IN THE CAUTION MODE, YES, A SKEPTIC IN THE INTELLECTUAL PART OF EMOTIONAL CENTER, MOSTLY JOVIAL, SOME VENUSIAN, IN GROWTH, NO (Chief Feature). YOU DID WELL ON THAT ONE, YES.

What is the SRG on _____: Mercury / Solar or Martial, Stoic, no Chief Feature, Growth, Intellectual part of Moving Center?

YES, A SIXTH LEVEL YOUNG SERVER IN THE OBSERVATION MODE. YOU DID WELL HERE TOO. YES, STOIC, IN GROWTH, INTELLECTUAL PART OF MOVING CENTER, MOSTLY MERCURIAL, SOME MARS.

_____ saw a transcendent soul on television — Archbishop [Fulton] Sheen, a very opinionated and arrogant man — he spoke of death. RH commented that he loses much energy around the experience of a patient dying.

WELL, UNFORTUNATELY, IN THIS CULTURE DEATH HAS LONG BEEN ASSOCIATED WITH PUNISHMENT, AND THIS SPILLS OVER ONTO THE FAMILY AND THOSE IN ATTENDANCE. IN CULTURES ACCEPTING THE TEACHINGS OF REINCARNATION EVEN THIS OCCASIONALLY HAPPENS, ESPECIALLY IN THOSE THAT ESPOUSE REINCARNATION TO A LOWER ORDER. IF YOU REGARD DEATH AS “BAD”, THEN NATURALLY YOU ARE GOING TO LOSE ENERGY WHEN THIS “BAD” HAPPENS. ALSO, IF YOU PROJECT EXPECTATIONS OF HEALING UPON THE PATIENT AND HIS ATTENDANTS YOU ARE GOING TO FEEL A SENSE OF FAILURE WHEN YOU DO NOT FULFILL THESE EXPECTATIONS. YES, YOU CAN GO TO GREAT AND HEROIC LENGTHS TO PROLONG THE PHYSICAL LIFE, BUT OFTEN TO THE GREAT DISCOMFORT OF BOTH THE PATIENT AND HIS FAMILY. OFTEN THE DEATH OF SOMEONE WHO HAS BEEN PAINFULLY ILL FOR A LONG PERIOD OF TIME COMES AS A DISTINCT RELIEF TO THE MEMBERS OF HIS FAMILY, EVEN THOUGH THEY WOULD BE UNABLE TO VERBALIZE IT. SOMETIMES YOU CAN DO THEM A DISSERVICE BY PROLONGING AGONY THAT THEY MUST SUFFER VICARIOUSLY. IF HEALING IS TO TAKE PLACE IT WILL BE FAR MORE DRAMATIC THAN MERE ANALGESIA, AND THESE ARE THOSE CASES IN WHICH YOU MAY PUT YOUR SKILLS TO THE TASK. BUT IN CASES WHERE THERE IS NO HEALING POSSIBLE, THE MOST YOU CAN OFFER IS COMFORT, AND USUALLY THIS WOULD BE BETTER DIRECTED TOWARD THOSE TO BE LEFT BEHIND. MANY VERY ILL PERSONS HAVE AN ACUTE AWARENESS OF THEIR IMPENDING DEATH, AND THE OPPORTUNITY TO DISCUSS THIS IS MANY TIMES MORE VALUABLE THAN ANY USELESS LAST DRASTIC TREATMENT. WE WOULD HOPE TO SEE IN THE FUTURE MORE COUNSELING DIRECTED TOWARD THOSE WHO WILL BE LEFT WITH A LIFE TO LIVE, AFTER THE DEATH HAS OCCURRED. MANY TIMES DURING A LONG ILLNESS THESE PERSONS NEED THE MOST HELP, CERTAINLY MORE THAN ONE WHO HAS DIED. WE WISH WE COULD GRAPHICALLY ILLUSTRATE THE AWARENESS THAT A DYING PERSON FEELS. WE FEEL THAT IT WOULD PUT YOUR FEARS TO REST. MANY TIMES THIS AWARENESS EVEN BECOMES AN INTENSE LONGING TOWARD THE LAST. YOU ALL KNOW WHERE THE LINE CAN BE DRAWN BETWEEN A CASE IN WHICH THERE CAN BE A HEALING AND THE CASE IN WHICH THERE WILL BE IMMINENT DEATH. LEVELING WITH THOSE INVOLVED WHEN THIS LINE IS DRAWN CAN BE THERAPEUTIC FOR BOTH THE PHYSICIAN AND THE PATIENT. THE GUILT OF COURSE STEMS FROM THE CONCEPT OF DEATH AS A PUNISHMENT. AFTER ALL, YOU ARE SENDING THIS SOUL TO MEET HIS FATE AND ARE THEREFORE RESPONSIBLE. THIS IS QUITE A BURDEN, AND WE ARE NOT SURPRISED THAT THIS PRODUCES FATIGUE. IT NEED NOT BE THAT WAY, BUT YOU YOURSELF MUST BEGIN TO LOOK UPON THE PHYSICAL LIFE AS MERELY A TRANSITORY THING AND NOT TO BE MOURNED. IN THE OLDER SOULS THIS BECOMES FAR EASIER, AS ALMOST ALL OF THEM WILL ACCEPT SOME CONCEPT OF PERPETUATION. WITH THE YOUNGER SOULS THIS MAY REQUIRE MORE SKILL, BUT STILL CAN BE SMOOTHLY HANDLED BY ONE WITH STRENGTH OF CONVICTIONS. YES, WE DO SEE MUCH ARROGANCE IN THE MAN FULTON. THIS IS A FINAL LEVEL OLD SOUL “TRANSCENDENT” [karma-free], AND NOT A MANIFESTATION OF A TRANSCENDENTAL SOUL. THERE IS A DIFFERENCE.

RH: Can it be seen in a patient’s eyes when they are going to die soon, or in their aura?

INTERESTINGLY ENOUGH, THERE IS ALSO A THERMAL CHANGE IN THE AURA THAT IS MEASURABLE AS IT CHANGES FROM ITS USUAL COLOR TO BLACK. BUT YES, MANY GOOD STUDENTS CAN SEE THIS IN THE EYES JUST AS CLEARLY AS THEY CAN SEE THE OVERLEAVES. THE LADY WAS AWARE OF THE POSITIVE THOUGHT FORMS.

_____ asked about his relationship with his sister-in-law. He has much negativity toward her. She is psychic. What is their conflict? Is it from the past? It is a strongly negative reaction.

THIS IS A VERY INTERESTING EXAMPLE OF AN EXTREMELY EXALTED SOUL WHO IS EXPENDING MUCH OF HER PSYCHIC ENERGY USELESSLY BY WORKING OUT OF THE NEGATIVE POLES OF EXALTED OVERLEAVES. FOR INSTANCE, THE SCATTERING COMES FROM THE NEGATIVE POLE OF GROWTH, THE HOSTILITY FROM THE NEGATIVE POLE OF PASSION. THE EXALTED OVERLEAVES IN THE NEGATIVE POLE WILL RESEMBLE THE CORRESPONDING ORDINAL OVERLEAVES AT THEIR STRONGEST MANIFESTATION. IN OTHER WORDS, PASSION AT ITS MOST NEGATIVE POINT WILL BE ALMOST REPRESSION; GROWTH WITH THIS AMOUNT OF SCATTERING WILL AMOUNT TO SOME DEGREE OF RETARDATION. THIS STUDENT HERE PRESENT, _____, OPERATES CLOSE TO THE MIDLINE, AND SOMETIMES FAR TO THE POSITIVE POLES OF GROWTH AND OTHER OVERLEAVES, ESPECIALLY THE PASSION MODE. THERE IS MUCH NEGATIVE ATTRACTION HERE AS A RESULT OF THIS. ALSO, THERE HAVE BEEN MANY SEQUENCES IN THE PAST. THE LADY WAS ONCE IN A POSITION WHERE HER POWER AS A CARDINAL EXTENDED OVER MUCH OF THE KNOWN WORLD — OR RATHER HER INFLUENCE CERTAINLY DID. YES, SHE DOES HAVE MUCH POWERFUL PSYCHIC ENERGY AT HER DISPOSAL. IT IS HOPED THAT SHE WILL CHANNEL IT MORE EFFICIENTLY IN THE NEAR FUTURE.

THIS DESIRE TO DO AWAY WITH LABELING IS NOT AT ALL BAD, AND IN ITS MORE POSITIVE STANCE APPROACHES ZEN BUDDHISM. LABELING FOR THIS CADRE IS NOW ONLY AN EXPEDIENT OF COMMUNICATION. AT A LATER POINT WE WOULD HOPE TO BE ABLE TO DISPENSE WITH THIS. RIGHT NOW IT IS EASIER THIS WAY AND MORE UNDERSTANDABLE.

THERE IS MAGNETIC ATTRACTION HERE, AND THE FEELING THAT IS KNOWN (felt) IS INTERPRETED AS NEGATIVE. THIS IS WHAT WE MEANT BY NEGATIVE ATTRACTION. THIS STUDENT IS IN ACCEPTANCE, NOT GROWTH (referring to _____).

_____ asked if _____ was a part of his Entity.

NO. WE WOULD SUGGEST THOUGH THAT YOU PURSUE THE FEELING FOR THE OTHER ALTERNATIVES.

_____ asked if E and he had known each other in religious causes.

YES.

_____ asked what stops him from submitting to love — growth — what is the barrier there for him to the emotional experience. His SRG is Old Priest, Spiritualist, Arrogance, Emotional part of Intellectual Center.

FIRST OF ALL WE WOULD LIKE TO CORRECT A SEMANTIC SLIP. THAT IS, THAT “KNOWLEDGE” IS UNDERSTANDING. WHAT HAS NOT PASSED INTO UNDERSTANDING WITH YOU IS INPUT — NOTHING MORE — INTO THE COMPUTER TO BE STORED. THE TRANSFORMATION ONLY OCCURS WHEN THE CHOICE HAS BEEN MADE — THE COMMITMENT. THE METHODS YOU SUGGEST WOULD OF COURSE BE IMPOSSIBLE FOR US TO ENFORCE, ALTHOUGH WE DO OF COURSE RECOGNIZE THE METHOD. IN THIS LIGHT WE HAVE SUGGESTED TO YOU AN ALTERNATIVE METHOD WHEREIN MUCH STRIPPING [of the barriers of Maya and False Personality] WOULD OCCUR, AND YOU WOULD ALL BE FORCED TO CONFRONT YOUR OWN AND OTHER STUDENT’S PERSONALITIES. WHEN YOU COMMIT YOURSELVES FINALLY TO A CAUSE, WHATEVER THAT CAUSE MIGHT BE — CHRISTIANITY, OCCULTISM, REVOLUTION, ETCETERA, ETCETERA — THERE IS TOO MUCH AT STAKE TO PULL OUT, AND YOU ARE FORCED TO CONFRONT YOUR BLOCKS, AND EITHER SINK OR SWIM WITH THEM. THE CONCEPT OF EXTENDED COMMUNITY OR FAMILY IS ONE ENVIRONMENT IN WHICH THIS CAN COME ABOUT. THE STUDENTS CAN SOMETIMES OVERCOME THESE BLOCKS OR BARRIERS RAPIDLY WHEN THEIR LIVELIHOOD DEPENDS UPON IT. RIGHT NOW IN THIS CADRE NOTHING REAL IS AT STAKE. THERE IS NOTHING TO LOSE IF THE STUDENTS ARE UNABLE TO WORK THROUGH THEIR BLOCKS. THE BARRIER BETWEEN YOU AND THE EMOTIONAL CENTER IS ONE THAT MANY IN THIS CADRE SHARE — YOU ARE NOT ALONE. THE SACRIFICES, YES, ARE NECESSARY IN YOURS AND OTHER CASES, FOR ONLY THROUGH THESE “SACRIFICES” WILL YOU BE ABLE TO HAVE THIS EXPERIENCE. AS IT IS NOW, THERE IS NO GOOD REASON, AND YOUR PERSONALITY IS WELL AWARE OF IT. IN MANY WAYS YOU AND OTHER STUDENTS ARE MUCH LIKE THE SUNDAY CATHOLICS THROUGHOUT THE WORLD, WHO DO NOT HAVE THE EXPERIENCE EITHER, BECAUSE THERE IS NO COMMITMENT. WE WOULD SEE YOU ALL EXAMINE YOUR SHORT-TERM GOALS WITH RELATION TO THIS TEACHING. THAT IS, WHAT IS IT YOU HOPE TO GAIN FROM OUR ASSOCIATION. IF THIS INCLUDES THE POSSIBILITY OF SPIRITUAL GROWTH, THEN WE WOULD SUGGEST THAT YOU REEXAMINE THE STEPS TOWARD THAT GOAL THAT WE HAVE OUTLINED. IF YOU ONLY EXPECT TO GAIN DATA, THEN THIS WILL SURELY BE A DISAPPOINTMENT TO YOU IN THE LONG RUN. MANY OF YOU ARE LOOKING FOR THE EXPERIENCES YOU SENSE THE OTHER STUDENTS ARE HAVING, BUT YOU ARE UNWILLING TO WORK FOR THIS IN THE WAYS WE HAVE SUGGESTED. YOU ARE CONTENT TO SIT BACK, SIGH, AND SAY, “OH, SHIT”. THIS IS OF COURSE AN OPTION, BUT ONE WE DO NOT ENCOURAGE. HOW MANY TIMES HAVE WE REPEATED THE STEPS YOU MUST TAKE? EXAMINE THE TENETS OF THE WORLDS GREAT RELIGIONS AND THE GREATEST TEACHINGS NOW EXTANT ON THIS PLANET. YOU WILL FIND THIS SAME ADVICE AGAIN AND AGAIN — PERHAPS CLOTHED IN DIFFERENT SEMANTICS, BUT NEVERTHELESS THE SAME — THAT UPON WHICH CHRISTIANITY WAS BASED, THAT UPON WHICH JUDAISM HAS SURVIVED FOR THE CENTURIES, THE PILLARS OF ISLAM, THE TEACHINGS OF SIDDHARTHA GUATAMA, THE TAO TE CHING. UNTIL THIS TEACHING BECOMES A WAY OF LIFE FOR YOU, THERE WILL BE NO EXPERIENCES FOR ANY OF YOU. THE ONLY WAY WE KNOW OF TO EXPERIENCE ANYTHING IS TO LIVE IT — WHETHER YOU BE ON THE PHYSICAL, ASTRAL, CAUSAL OR THE HIGH PLANE, IT DOES NOT MATTER. COMMITTING YOURSELVES BEGINS THE TRANSFORMATION. THE CONCEPT OF “PILGRIMAGE” IN SOME OF THE BEST TEACHINGS EXTANT ON THIS PLANET DO A MARVELOUS JOB OF STRIPPING, IF THE PILGRIMAGE IS PERFORMED IN THE PROPER STATE OF MIND. WE HAVE SUGGESTED TO YOU SOMETHING EVEN HARDER IN THIS CULTURE: THAT OF LIVING TOGETHER. SOME OF YOU WOULD MUCH PREFER TO WALK ACROSS THE DESERT FROM MEDINA TO MECCA THAN EVEN TO CONTEMPLATE LIVING TOGETHER. THIS IS WHY IT WOULD IN THE LONG RUN BE VALUABLE. IT IS PERHAPS THE HARDEST TASK YOU WOULD EVER UNDERTAKE ON THE PHYSICAL PLANE, FOR EVERYTHING IN YOUR CULTURE MITIGATES AGAINST IT. THE ENTIRE CULTURE IS ACHIEVEMENT-ORIENTED, AND THIS ALONE IMPLIES ALIENATION AND COMPETITION. ANTI-ACHIEVEMENT GROUPS ARE FRIGHTENING, AND THEREFORE ANTI-CULTURE, AND TO BE ELIMINATED. FINANCIAL INTEGRITY IS THE WATCHWORD OF THIS CULTURE, AND THEREFORE FRAUGHT WITH MAYA. THIS CAN ALWAYS BE EASILY SEEN IN ANY CULTURE. THAT WHICH IS HELD UP AS THE GOAL OF SOCIETY IS THE GOAL OF FALSE PERSONALITY, AND THEREFORE OPPOSED TO SPIRITUAL GROWTH. NOW, WE ARE NOT SUGGESTING THAT YOU PLUNGE YOURSELVES INTO POVERTY. WE WOULD SEE THAT YOU LIVE WELL SO THAT THERE IS NO STRUGGLE TO SURVIVE, FOR THE MAIN REASON THAT IF YOU MUST STRUGGLE TO LIVE, YOU CANNOT DEVOTE THE AMOUNT OF TIME NECESSARY FOR SPIRITUAL EVOLUTION. THIS IS A LIFETIME COMMITMENT. IT IS NOT SOMETHING THAT YOU CAN WORK ON ON SATURDAY NIGHT AND FORGET ABOUT FOR THE REST OF THE WEEK. YOU COULD NOT KEEP IT TUCKED AWAY IN SOME DIM, DUSKY, CEREBRAL CORRIDOR AND ONLY TAKE IT OUT WHEN COMPANY COMES. WE HAVE SPOKEN TO YOU MANY — NO, COUNTLESS — TIMES ABOUT WHAT YOU AND WE CHOOSE TO CALL A “TRUST LEVEL”. THIS TRUST LEVEL IS OF COURSE ESSENTIAL TO AGAPE OR A SPIRITUAL LOVE. THE PERSONALITY CAN NEVER EXPERIENCE THIS. THE PERSONALITY CANNOT TRUST, THEREFORE CANNOT LOVE. IF THIS TRUST LEVEL IS TO DEVELOP, IT MUST DEVELOP IN AN ENVIRONMENT OF ALMOST CONSTANT EXPOSURE. IF AGAPE IS TO DEVELOP, IT MUST DEVELOP IN AN ENVIRONMENT WHERE STUDENTS OBSERVE EACH OTHER IN ALL FACETS OF LIFE, NOT JUST WHEN THE STUDENTS ARE ON THEIR GOOD MEETING BEHAVIOR. IT IS EASY TO LOVE MOST OF YOU DURING THE WEEKLY COMINGS TOGETHER OF THIS CADRE. WE DOUBT THAT THIS WOULD HOLD TRUE TWENTY FOUR HOURS A DAY WITHOUT MUCH WORK. MOST OF YOU TRUST EACH OTHER ONLY SUPERFICIALLY. NOT ONE OF YOU FEEL THE BONDS THAT WE WOULD FOSTER IN THIS CADRE, BUT THE ABILITY IS THERE, AND A START HAS BEEN MADE SEVERAL TIMES. HOWEVER, WHEN IT BECOMES FRIGHTENING, IT IS QUICKLY ABORTED, AND THE SUBJECT IS CHANGED RAPIDLY OVER TO SOMETHING LESS SCARY. WE HAVE RECENTLY DECIDED THAT THIS WILL NO LONGER BE THE CASE, AT LEAST WHERE WE ARE CONCERNED. WE WILL NO LONGER GO ALONG WITH THE WHIMS, THE CAPRICIOUSNESS, OF VARIOUS STUDENTS WHO DO NOT WISH TO FACE THEIR BARRIERS. PERHAPS THEN WE SHOULD SAY THE WINNOWING HAS BEGUN.

Anything else?

ONLY THAT THE CHOICE IS STILL YOURS. YOU CAN WALK OUT OF THIS TEACHING NOW, OR YOU CAN STICK AROUND FOR THE EXCITEMENT.
