CC: I would like to ask about a neighbor.

THIS LADY IS A DEEPLY TROUBLED MID CYCLE MATURE ARTISAN IN REJECTION; BUT WHAT DO YOU HOPE TO ACHIEVE WITH HER?

CC: The neighbors feel threatened and it is frightening to see a person crumble in front of you. It sounds heartless to say that she will have to work it out herself. Is she with the proper therapist for her?

NO, SHE IS NOT.

CC: Would it help to know her Center?

SHE IS AN EMOTIONALLY CENTERED MARS-JOVIAL.

CC: Is she psychotic?

MILDLY, YES; MOSTLY NEUROTIC; MUCH AMBIVALENCE CONCERNING HER MOTHERHOOD ROLE. MOST SOULS IN REJECTION DENY ALL INTERNAL CAUSATION AND ONLY FIXATE ON THE EXTERNAL EVILS.

ET: They say, “The devil made me do it. I didn’t!” I know a lady who has been “sanctified by receiving the holy spirit”. Her son is selling dope, and her husband is a policeman. She thinks the devil is walking this earth and is making her do things.

THIS LADY IS A SECOND LEVEL BABY SLAVE IN REJECTION.

ET: I have been reading From Prison to Praise by Carothers. He is a part of the Charismatic Movement now. Before that, he was a son-of-a-gun. He is “healing” people now and says that God is telling him what to say. I was wondering if he has a “Michael[like]” source for his healings.

MOST OF THE TIME THOSE SOULS WHO WRITE AND LIVE THIS FASHION DO HAVE CONTACT, AT LEAST WITH ASTRAL TEACHERS. SINCE THIS IS A LITTLE-UNDERSTOOD PHENOMENON, THEY CALL IT A “GOD”, OR “JESUS”. YES, THERE IS SIMPLY NO KNOWLEDGE WITHIN TO ALLOW THEM TO ACCEPT ANOTHER SOURCE. THE VOCABULARY IS NOT THERE. MANY MATURE SOULS SUCH AS THIS MAN ARE WIDE OPEN TO TRANSMITTING. THEY ARE BROAD-BAND RECEIVERS, AND THEY CANNOT THEN ASSIMILATE AND RATIONALLY SEPARATE THE WHEAT FROM THE CHAFF. THIS MAN IS A POWERHOUSE OF PSYCHIC ENERGY WHICH HE BEAMS ABOUT INDISCRIMINATELY. WHAT A HEALER HE COULD BE IF THIS WERE CHANNELED IN SOME USABLE FORM.

ET: Kosmotokos, the author of The Last Temptations of Christ was also a broad-beam receiver.

NC: I would like to ask of each one their current feelings and how they relate to what extent of getting involved in the Oregon property.

SC: I don’t care for planning long distance. There are enough dragons to slay to keep one from getting up there.

RC: I do not think the time schedule CK has laid out is realistic.

SC: I am interested in an extended family, and if it means buying our own property, fine.

ET: I do not feel like making a commitment now. Perhaps in another year.

RH: I Just received depressing news from our financial advisor. Our investments are worth nothing. I cannot see myself earning a living by commuting to Eugene without a car.

NC: I would like to see more people at the planning sessions to make decisions. One cannot just go to the Town when he is ready. He must become involved before and know the people he will be living with, and have no expectations.

CC: I would like to ask where do you want the group to go in the Town?

Not a monastery; not a sanctuary; not an escape — to be in essence.

SC: I feel a lack of enthusiasm.

ET: It is important that we say what we feel as individuals, not what we think the group ought to feel. For me, the group is great and I will do it as along as it’s good growth for me. Other agendas do not have to mesh.

SC: I want to be part of an environment that is growing spiritually.

NC: Your involvement now is by running the Ouija board for others. I see your big interest as your book, and your need for resources would be met better in Berkeley.

ET: With a split, you may see an adept blossoming. Who knows? (Only the Shadow?) SC, you do not need the Ouija board to communicate (with me or anyone else.)

JH: I am anxious to go there, and may be able to have property near there as a base. I want to help build the rental units.

SC: I am seeking a way of life within the group, not to become more effective in the milieu.

THERE IS A WAY, YOU KNOW, THAT THIS TEACHING CAN SERVE THE NEEDS OF ALL WHO SEEK, AND YOU HAVE IT WITHIN THE ORIGINAL NUCLEUS TO PERFORM THIS SERVICE. THOSE WHO HAVE THE NEED FOR INTENSIFIED PERSONAL SEARCHES CAN ARRANGE FOR THIS. THOSE WHO ARE NOT CERTAIN OF THEIR LEVEL OF COMMITMENT MAY FIND THAT THE GENERAL SESSION IS ADEQUATE FOR THEM. THE SMALLER SESSIONS ARE MOST VALUABLE FOR THE MORE COMMITTED STUDENTS, AND DEFINITELY SHOULD BE RESERVED FOR THAT PURPOSE. THERE IS SOME MERRIMENT DERIVED IN THE GENERAL SESSION MERELY BY PURSUING SOME OF THE LESS DEDICATED STUDENTS’ PERSONAL AGENDAS, AND THIS WILL BENEFIT ALL. WE STILL SEE THE TENDENCY IN ALL OF YOU TO EXPECT OF THE OTHERS AND TO BE DISAPPOINTED WHEN THE ANTICIPATED REACTION DOES NOT COME ABOUT. THIS CANNOT BE AVOIDED UNLESS MUCH INTENSIVE WORK IS DONE. WE COULD DO THIS WITH YOU, AND WE ARE ALWAYS AVAILABLE FOR THIS. THERE IS A NEED FOR SOME DIVERSIFICATION HERE NOW WITH ALL OF THE PARTS CONTRIBUTING TOWARD A GREATER WHOLE IN THE END.

WE HAVE NOT SUGGESTED THAT THE NUCLEUS OF THIS TEACHING EXPAND TO THE POINT WHERE NEEDS ARE NO LONGER BEING SERVED. WE ARE CONCERNED ONLY THAT YOU SHARE THE KNOWLEDGE ONCE IT HAS BEEN ASSIMILATED AND VERIFIED.

WE HAVE A METHOD BY WHICH ALL OF YOU CAN CHOOSE TO ACHIEVE A MODICUM OF GROWTH ON A SPIRITUAL PLANE. MANY OF YOU CAN EVEN USE IT AS A SPRINGBOARD TOWARD BECOMING AN ADEPT. THIS IS ENTIRELY UP TO YOU. WE WILL FIND MANY VEHICLES THROUGH WHICH WE CAN TEACH THE LOGOS — THIS DOES NOT PRESENT US WITH A PROBLEM. WE ANSWER ALL CALLS FOR THIS TEACHING.

What is the method?

WE HAVE BEEN TRANSMITTING THIS TO YOU, BUT MANY HAVE NOT HEARD. THIS TEACHING HAS IMPLICIT WITHIN IT THE METHOD OF WHICH WE SPEAK.

NC: The method is to live the teaching in an attitude of love.

INDIVIDUAL VERIFICATION OF THE GIVEN MATERIAL IS PERHAPS THE MOST VITAL PRECEPT UPON WHICH THIS TEACHING IS BASED, FOR THIS PROCESS ALONE OPENS THE DOOR TO EXPANDED PERCEPTION, WHICH IS, OF COURSE, NECESSARY IN ORDER TO EXPERIENCE AGAPE, AND THUS GROW SPIRITUALLY.

RH: I saw the movie, Here Comes Everybody, an Esalen film by Will Schutz and Betty Fuller. I had the perception that they were Slaves: Betty perhaps an Old soul, and Will a Mature one.

THE PERCEPTIONS ARE ESSENTIALLY VALID: BOTH ARE SLAVES. BOTH ARE SPIRITUALISTS. THE LADY IS IN GROWTH, THE MAN IN ACCEPTANCE. THE LADY IS A SEVENTH LEVEL MATURE SOUL, THE MAN IS SIXTH.

RH: I would like to know if unblocking the emotions as is seen in the Esalen film is a healthy thing. It looks good.

WE DO NOT SEE THE NECESSITY FOR THIS ACTION WITHIN THE GROUP, BUT PERHAPS AN OUTLET NEEDS TO BE PROVIDED ELSEWHERE. IN THIS WE WILL NOT MEDIATE, AS THIS IS WITHIN THE REALM OF LIFE CRISES, AND DOES NOT PERTAIN TO SPIRITUAL GROWTH. THIS IS NOT TO SAY THAT THESE MATTERS DO NOT HAVE TO BE DEALT WITH — THEY MOST CERTAINLY DO. LONG BEFORE YOU CAN EVEN TALK ABOUT GROWTH — SPIRITUAL GROWTH FOR THE DEDICATED STUDENT AND FOR THE ADEPT — REQUIRES DETACHMENT FROM THE MUNDANE AND TRIVIAL MATTERS WHICH ARE SUCH IMMODERATE ENERGY DRAINS. HOW CAN YOU POSSIBLY GROW IF YOU ARE IMMERSED IN ALL THIS MAYA?

RH: The Town meeting for planning sounds like super Maya to me. It is making Maya what it ought to be.

CC: It is a planning process and one of growth involving the people.

ET: The meetings are where it is just talk, and I want “To be”.

CC: The Town Planning requires a constant dialogue. You have to earn a place in the Town. One without a sense of community cannot just walk into it: so there’s a need for planning.

MANY OF THOSE WHO ARE IN THE FOUNDING GROUP FOR THIS LAND VENTURE ARE IN SEARCH OF THE GOLDEN FLEECE. THIS DOES NOT HANG IN OREGON MORE THAN IN TROY. OF COURSE, THEY WILL CARRY THEIR MIXED BAG OF PROBLEMS WITH THEM. THE ADVANTAGE IN A CLOSED COMMUNITY OF THAT SORT IS THE OPPORTUNITY TO LIVE THE TEACHING IN A SUPPORTIVE ATMOSPHERE, AND BY EXAMPLE SPILL OVER ON TO THOSE AROUND YOU. THIS IS NOT TO SAY THAT YOU WILL BE HEARD BY ANY OF THEM. PROBABLY NOT MANY OF THEM WILL RESPOND, BUT THOSE WHO DO WILL CONTRIBUTE, AND WILL IN TURN AID IN YOUR OWN PERSONAL GROWTH PROCESS BY PROVIDING THE PHOTOGRAPHS. WE SEE ONLY ONE ADVANTAGE IN THIS PROPOSED COMMUNITY, AND THAT IS THE ENVIRONMENTAL ONE. WE SUGGESTED IT AS A MEANS TO AN END, WHERE YOU COULD, THROUGH GROUP EFFORT, FREE HOURS OF TIME FOR INDIVIDUAL GROWTH. PERHAPS YOU NEED NOT INVOLVE YOURSELVES AT ALL WITH THOSE WHO ARE IN THE AWARENESS MOVEMENT. WE WOULD POINT OUT TO YOU THAT THIS IS A VALID STARTING POINT FOR THOSE WITH AMBIGUOUS FEELINGS AND THE NEED FOR AN ELUSIVE “SOMETHING BETTER”. MANY ACCIDENTALLY FIND THIS “SOMETHING BETTER” BY GOING THROUGH THE AWARENESS PROCESSES, AND OTHERS GO ON TO A SPIRITUAL GROWTH PROCESS SUCH AS THE ONE WE WOULD SEE YOU INVOLVE YOURSELVES [in]. MANY OF YOU CAME TO THIS BECAUSE OF THE FRICTION IN YOUR LIVES, SEEKING A METHOD OF HANDLING THIS AND STILL STAYING ABOVE GROUND EMOTIONALLY, AND TOWARD THIS END SOME OF YOU HAVE MADE MUCH PROGRESS. THE MAN, E.T., CONTINUES TO STRUGGLE WITH THIS, AND IS NOW ABLE TO SEE HIS PROGRESS BEGINNING TO SPEED UP. THE MAN, J.H., WISHES TO DO THIS ALSO, BUT SEES THE NECESSITY TO CHANGE THE ENVIRONMENT. SIMILAR INSIGHTS HAVE COME TO OTHERS, BUT THEY HAVE CHOSEN TO DISCOUNT THESE AS IRRATIONAL, MAINLY BECAUSE THE CHANGES WOULD BE IMMEDIATELY PAINFUL, AND IMMEDIATE PAIN IS MORE SCARY THAN PROJECTED PLEASURES ARE WORTH.

JH asked a question about jobs in essence for her.

WORKING WITH YOUNG PEOPLE IN AN UNSTRUCTURED ENVIRONMENT WOULD BE MUCH MORE IN ESSENCE THAN THE STRUCTURED ENVIRONMENT OF THE CONVENTIONAL CLASSROOM.

CC: Is false personality something the soul chooses for growth?

YES, OF COURSE, THAT IS VALID. WHY ELSE VARY THE LOCALE AND CHOOSE THE FAMILIES THAT YOU DO?

BM: Do I have the right idea of equating false personality with Jung’s ”persona”?

RH: False personality is all that culturally induced trash.

Someone helpful: It serves a useful purpose and also buffers the essence.

FALSE PERSONALITY IS ONLY A PART OF THIS. THE TOTAL FALSE PERSONALITY INCLUDES, OF COURSE, ALL OF THE “SHOULDS” THAT YOU LEARNED IN CHILDHOOD, THE VARIOUS MACHINATIONS YOU GO THROUGH AS A RESULT OF YOUR GOALS, AND THOSE REACTIONS THAT ARE SOLELY THE RESULT OF THE TAPE LOOPS PROVIDED BY THE ATTITUDE.

MJ: More on “machinations”, please.

GROWTH IS A ROCKY GOAL, AND CAUSES THE SOUL TO GO THROUGH SOME ELABORATE AND COMPLICATED MACHINATIONS WHICH MASK ALL OF THE OTHER GOALS. MANY TIMES THE SOUL IN GROWTH IS FORCED TO PLAY OUT ALL OF THE AGONIES OF THE OTHER GOALS IN ORDER TO GROW, SUCH AS THE REJECTION-DOMINANCE SEEN OFTEN IN MANY MEMBERS OF THIS GROUP WHO ARE IN GROWTH. DEPRESSION AND ELATION USUALLY MANIFESTS OFTEN IN THIS GOAL. THERE IS SOMETIMES THE NEED TO SUBMIT, I.E., TO PUT ONESELF IN THE HANDS OF THE GURU. THERE ARE ALSO MANY TIMES THE NEED TO FEEL ACCEPTED, TO HAVE THE GOAL VERIFIED BY SOCIETY, TO CHECK OUT WITH LIFE THE SANITY OF THE SOUL’S PURPOSE. THIS OFTEN MAKES THE SOUL WHO IS STILL IN FALSE PERSONALITY GO THROUGH A SET OF WELL DEFINED PATTERNS. YOU CAN NOW BEGIN TO PHOTOGRAPH THESE PATTERNS IN ONE ANOTHER. THERE IS THE DEFINITE GAME-PLAYING ASPECT TO THIS THAT, ON A LOWER LEVEL, IS WORKED OUT IN AWARENESS GROUPS. SOMETIMES IT IS EASIER TO OBSERVE THE VARIOUS MACHINATIONS BY OBSERVING AWARENESS GROUPS AT WORK. PERHAPS THIS FILM (Here Comes Everybody) WOULD BE VALUABLE FOR ALL OF YOU TO SEE.

RH: Does erotic love ever play a part in the soul’s growth?

EROTIC LOVE IS A RATIONALIZATION OF FALSE PERSONALITY, ALL OWING FOR PERPETUATION OF THE SPECIES. JUST LOOK AROUND YOU, R.H., AND SEE HOW COMPLICATED THIS MOST NATURAL INSTINCTIVE FUNCTION HAS BECOME. THE ONLY REASON THAT YOUR CULTURE HAS NOT BUILT UP A SIMILAR RITUAL, COMPLETE WITH RULES, AROUND DEFECATION, IS THAT YOU DO IT ALL ALONE. AS SOON AS YOU COME TOGETHER WITH ANOTHER PERSONALITY, YOU BEGIN TO RATIONALIZE ALL FUNCTIONS AND BEHAVIORS.

In pair bonds is there more apt to be erotic love?

WE SPEAK OF PAIR BONDS IN ESSENCE, AND THIS LEADS TO A FEELING OF AGAPE. USUALLY, HOWEVER, THESE VERY FORTUNATE SOULS ARE SEXUALLY COMPATIBLE SIMPLY BECAUSE THEY ARE SO OPEN, AND THEY PLACE SO LITTLE EMPHASIS ON METHOD, AND MORE EMPHASIS ON THE QUALITY OF THE RELATIONSHIP.

Is sex so important in pair bonds?

SEXUALITY IS USUALLY NOT A PROBLEM IN PAIR BONDS, SINCE ALL OTHER FACTORS ARE COMPATIBLE. WE FEEL THE SENSUALITY CAN OFTEN BE A DOOR TO EXTRA PERCEPTIVE EXPERIENCES. SENSUALITY CAN BE ENJOYED OUTSIDE OF THE MATING URGE.

How about the other side, as in India with so much spirituality?

IT IS MORE APPARENT THAN REAL. THIS METHOD THAT IS TOTAL AUSTERITY SELDOM QUALIFIES THE SENSES ENOUGH TO COMPLETE ANY OF THE MONADS, AND THE SOUL MUST REINCARNATE AGAIN IN ORDER TO EXPERIENCE WHAT IT MISSED WHILE IT WAS SITTING IN ITS HAIR CLOTH.

NC: Is there any relation between super Maya, Goals and Roles?

OF COURSE, SOULS IN THE VARIOUS GOALS WILL CREATE SPECIFIC SETS OF OBSTACLES AND BARRIERS — IN OTHER WORDS, MAYA — AND THE OLDER THE SOUL, THE MORE EXALTED THE MAYA BECOMES, AND FINALLY, IT EVEN COMES AROUND TO MASQUERADING AS SPIRITUAL GROWTH, THE MOST SUPER REFINED MAYA OF ALL. WHEN YOU HAVE LEARNED TO DIFFERENTIATE BETWEEN THIS AND THE GENUINE ARTICLE, YOU WILL HAVE ARRIVED AT THE POINT WHERE YOU CAN NO LONGER SLIP BACK INTO OLD, SAFE PATTERNS, AND THEREFORE MUST GO FORWARD. THE AWARENESS GROUPS ARE, OF COURSE, SUPER MAYA GROUPS OF MATURE SOULS, THE POLITICAL ACTION GROUPS OF THE YOUNG, AND SPLINTER RELIGIOUS QUACKERY GROUPS OF THE BABIES. IT ALL COMES BACK TO THE LACK OF INNER PURPOSE AND THE KNOWLEDGE OF THE TRAPPED ESSENCE. MANY YOUNG AND MATURE SOULS ACTIVELY PRACTICE WITCHCRAFT AND BLACK MAGIC IN ANSWER TO THE INCREASED PERCEPTIONS THAT THEY ENCOUNTER IN THEMSELVES BUT ARE UNWILLING TO INVESTIGATE AT A DEEPER LEVEL. MANY OLD SOULS DABBLE IN ORIENTALIA FOR THE SAME REASON.

MJ: I would like to ask about a person I feel is an Old soul with much bad karma, an Artisan or a Sage, and I wonder about all the bad things that have been happening to her.

THIS LADY IS A MID CYCLE MATURE SAGE IN RETARDATION, A SKEPTIC. SHE SOUNDS GOOD. THIS IS USUALLY THE WAY WITH SAGES.

There was a discussion about hyperactive children, and something was said about using Ritalin for Mature souls in Retardation and what happens in adolescence when the Ritalin is no longer used.

THEY GENERALLY GO ON TO OTHER FORMS OF NEUROPSYCHOSIS AT THIS TIME.

How about adults in the Retardation Goal? And those who are psychotic?

DIPHENYLHYDANTOIN COULD BE USED, ALSO.

The drug would mask the Retardation then would it not?

IT DOES MODIFY, BUT NOT PERMANENTLY, BUT THE HOLIDAY CREATED BY THE DRUG ALLOWS YOU TO SUGGEST THIS ALTERATION OF THE SOUL.
