ARE HERE WITH YOU TONIGHT. WE WOULD SAY A FEW
WORDS ON A SUBJECT THAT
HAS NOT BEEN BROACHED. WE FEEL THAT YOU NEED
TO KNOW ABOUT [it], AND
PERHAPS IT WILL GIVE RISE TO SOME QUESTIONS.
THE LIFE CYCLE IS THROWN IN MOTION ON ANY
GIVEN WORLD, IT IS LEFT
ALONE FOR MANY CENTURIES TO EVOLVE UNMOLESTED
AND UNDISTURBED. WHEN A
DOMINANT SPECIES FINALLY STABILIZES, WE BEGIN
TO MONITOR THIS
SPECIES. WHEN THE ANIMAL BECOMES SUFFICIENTLY
DOMESTICATED, AND IS
TAUGHT BASIC SURVIVAL TECHNIQUES, INFANT SOULS
ARE CAST. THE DINOSAUR
DID NOT EMERGE AS THE DOMINANT SPECIES.
INSTEAD, A CARNIVORE, A
MAMMALIAN, UPRIGHT APE DID. THE INFANT SOULS
WERE NOT INITIALLY CAST
UNTIL THE DOMINANT CREATURE HAD EVOLVED INTO
ONE WHERE THE CEREBRAL
CAPACITY WAS SUFFICIENT FOR LEARNING.

IS CULTURALLY INDUCED, FOR THE MOST PART.
SCHOLARSHIP IS NOT VALUED
IN ALL CULTURES, BUT SURVIVAL REQUIRES
INTELLIGENCE OF ANOTHER SORT.

SPECIES EVOLVED SEPARATELY. THE HOMO SAPIENS
VARIETY IS SEPARATED AND
DISTINCT, SAY, FROM THE GORILLA GORILLA.

WOULD RECOGNIZE, SAME AS
WITH EOHIPPUS. THERE WAS ALSO A PROTOTYPE

what consequence is this to us now?

YOU WILL BE ASKED.
soul has been said to have always been in
existence. Would this be
equivalent to Genesis where we were thrown out
of “Paradise” —
a creation purely spiritual — into the
second chapter of Genesis tells of God making
a body out of earth.
CHAPTER II EXPLAINS THE EMERSION OF THE SOUL
IN THE BODY OF THE
DOMINANT CREATURE, YES.
I ask for information about what a Pragmatist
ATTITUDE EMPHASIZES THE PRACTICAL, “REAL” SIDE
OF NATURE, MANY
TIMES TO THE POINT OF DENYING THE EXISTENCE OF
OTHER EXTERNAL FORCES.
IN THIS LADY THIS IS SOMEWHAT MODIFIED BY THE
SPIRITUAL ROLE [of
back to the origin of man, I find the source
of my trouble is
awareness of self in contrast to intellect, as
IS VALID. THAT IS WHERE ALL OF THE PROBLEMS
ARE. YOU ARE RIGHT ON
THAT. WE HAVE SAID MUCH ABOUT ALIENATION, AND
ONE OF ITS CAUSES IS
THIS AWARENESS OF SELF AS A SEPARATE AND
UNIQUE BEING IN A HOSTILE
UNIVERSE. WE HAVE ALSO SAID THAT THE UNIVERSE
IS NOT HOSTILE — IT
IS COMPLETELY NEUTRAL. MAN’S SEPARATISM IS AN
ILLUSION, PART OF
MAYA FOR THE ESSENCE TO OVERCOME ON THE UPWARD
CLIMB. YOU ARE NOW
BEGINNING TO REORGANIZE YOUR PERCEPTIONS TO
INCLUDE THE LARGER WHOLE.
ALL OLD SOULS DO. YOUR OWN MANIFESTATION HAS
BEEN PROTRACTED BY YOUR
OWN DESIGN. IT HAS TAKEN YOU A LONG TIME TO
QUESTION THIS, AND YOU
MUST STILL ASK MANY QUESTIONS, AS THERE IS
STILL A HIATUS IN YOUR
would like to ask “how” to apply the knowledge
to the work I am
doing at the hospital, and if people’s style
of dreaming has in it
a clue to their soul.
[dreaming is not a clue to their soul,] BUT
THEIR ABILITY TO RECALL
[past lives] AND DESCRIBE [them] IS. MUCH OF
THE TIME SPENT IN
“DREAMING” IS, IN REALITY, TIME SPENT ON THE
ASTRAL PLANE. THE
AMOUNT OF DREAMING ACTUALLY INCREASES AS THE
SOUL AGES, AND THE
ABILITY TO RECALL BECOMES ACUTE IN THE MATURE
AND OLD CYCLES. MOST
SOULS WHO HAVE DEFINITELY RECURRING DREAMS ARE
MATURE AND OLD SOULS.
BABY SOULS DREAM MUNDANE DREAMS, AS THIS IS
THE STYLE OF THEIR LIVES.
YOUNG SOULS DREAM EXCITING AND OFTEN ROMANTIC
DREAMS, [in] WHICH THEY
ARE OFTEN THE “DRAGON SLAYER”. THE MATURE
SOULS OFTEN DREAM
DREAMS OF VIOLENCE AND DEATH, AND MANY TIMES
THEIR DREAMS ARE REPLETE
WITH RELIGIOUS SYMBOLISM. OLD SOULS OFTEN
DREAM OF INCIDENTS FROM
THEIR REMOTE PAST [lives].

feel dreams are a commentary of your life, of
the stresses and
strains at the moment. A dream can tell you
where you are. We all
want to categorize dreams. I’m saying that
this can’t be done as
each dream has to be individually analyzed.
MAN IS A BONA FIDE IDEALIST.
PERCEIVE THE WORLD IN TERMS OF ITS IDEAL
STATE, AND BASE YOUR ACTIONS
THEREIN. IT IS NOT NAIVETÉ, NO.
[an Idealist] expect people to perform a
certain way and never can
quite see that they do not mean what I hear
them to say. I see
Idealism as being able to perceive things as
they could be and trying
to pursue that.
Cynic thinks everyone has an ulterior motive.
[The editor thinks this
comment applys better to a Skeptic in the
negative pole of
vision quest I took on Saturday was
enlightening, and I would like to
go through it again, but I feel I would like
to have a trained
psychologist for a guide this time.
THE PROVISION ON PROFESSION? SOME WHO HAVE NOT
RECEIVED THE PROPER
CREDENTIALS ARE MUCH MORE SKILLED IN THIS.

BECOMES THE BEST GUIDE. ANY MEMBER OF THIS
GROUP WHO HAS TAKEN A
SIMILAR JOURNEY WOULD SUFFICE.

IS VALID. WE THINK THAT YOU ARE NOT HELPING
YOURSELF RIGHT NOW, S.S.
NONE OF THE CONFLICTS YOU ARE NOW EXPERIENCING
ARE KARMIC, AND THE
SUFFERING IS NEEDLESS. ACCEPT THE GUIDANCE OF
THOSE WHO WOULD GIVE
FREELY OF THEIR TIME AND COMPANY, AND
RECONSTRUCT YOUR LIFE AROUND
THIS NEW SUPERSTRUCTURE. YOU WILL FIND THE
MEANING YOU SEEK. YOU CAN
ALTER YOUR GOAL AND CHANGE THINGS FOR YOURSELF
IN A MOST POSITIVE WAY
BY TAKING WHAT IS OFFERED INSTEAD OF CHASING
RAINBOWS THAT HAVE
ALREADY FADED. THIS ADVICE CAN BE TAKEN TO
HEART BY OTHERS HERE ALSO,
BUT YOU ARE NOW DWELLING IN FANTASY [typical
for Idealists], AND YOU
MUST TAKE THE STEP THAT WILL LIBERATE YOU FROM
THIS. IF YOU FOLLOW
OUR ADVICE, YOU CANNOT FAIL TO CHANGE IT — IT
can I resolve my guilt feelings?
KNOW THAT YOU ARE IN NO WAY RESPONSIBLE — YOU
CANNOT HOLD YOURSELF
[responsible] FOR THE ACTIONS OF OTHERS.
HOWEVER, WE DO SUGGEST THAT
IN THE FUTURE, YOU BE A BIT MORE OPEN ABOUT
YOUR OWN FEELINGS FROM
it because of my Priest Role that I have
trouble accepting the work
of other nurses? Why do I expect so much of
them and other people? I
do not like it when they are careless.
[a] PRIEST YOU NATURALLY EXPECT OTHERS TO
MEASURE UP TO YOUR OWN
EXALTED STANDARDS. YOU ARE ALSO AN IDEALIST
AND WITH [the] GOAL OF
DOMINANCE [which makes this tendency even

strong enough. I don’t
feel the advice given is enough to hold us
IS A DEFINITE STRIVING TOWARD COHESION BETWEEN
AT LEAST FIVE MEMBERS
IN THIS GROUP. THE ADVICE MUST NOW BE
EXTRACTED FROM THE MIDDLE OF
MATERIAL YOU HAVE RECEIVED AND SPELLED OUT TO
THOSE WHO HAVE NOT
JOINED FORCES. WE FEEL THAT YOU AND SEVERAL
OTHERS ARE CAPABLE OF
EXTRACTING THE ESSENCE OF THIS TEACHING SO
FAR, AND GIVING IT TO THE
OTHERS. IF THEY ACCEPT IT, THEN THAT IS GOOD.
IF NOT, THEN YOU MUST
KNOW THAT WE WERE NOT THEIR TEACHER.
move seems to be reason for division.
OF THIS TEACHING CONSISTS OF ELIMINATING THE
ISOLATION AND THE
DUPLICATION OF ENERGIES. IF THIS IS
UNACCEPTABLE, THEN IT IS NOT THE
TEACHING FOR THEM.
would like to ask, since being told I was a
Stoic, and have looked
back over my life, about times as a child when
my other brothers and
sisters were so upset that they could not eat
their meals: is being a
Stoic why I could always eat, no matter what
upsets were going on
IS, IN PART, DUE TO THE STOICISM, BUT ALSO TO
STRONGHOLD. THERE WAS NO RATIONAL REASON WHY
YOU SHOULD NOT EAT.
STOICS ARE NOT DEVOID OF ALL FEELINGS; THEY
CAN MERELY DETACH
THEMSELVES IN A FAIRLY LOFTY MANNER FROM THE
PAIN INVOLVED. OF
COURSE, THEY ALSO DETACH THEMSELVES FROM MUCH
OF THE PLEASURE ALSO.

WOULD SAY SOMETHING ABOUT THERAPY AT THIS
POINT. IT IS WITHIN THE
CAPABILITIES OF ALL OF YOU TO RESOLVE YOUR
LIFE CRISES AND WALK THE
PATH OF SPIRITUAL GROWTH. WE ARE ATTEMPTING TO
PROVIDE FOR YOU AN
ENVIRONMENT WHERE THIS WILL BE MORE THAN JUST
POSSIBLE — IT WILL BE
A REALITY. THE REJECTION OF THIS WILL BE A
CHOICE THAT YOU WILL MAKE
YOURSELF — REALIZE THAT. THERE ARE THOSE IN
THIS GROUP WHO CAN
GUIDE THE OTHERS IN PROVIDING SUCH A GROWING,
BUT YOU MUST CHOOSE. YOU ONLY HAVE A
CHOICE; WE CANNOT MAKE IT
we have a definition of a Realist?
REALIST PERCEIVES THE SITUATION AT HAND IN AN
CLARITY, AND SUBCONSCIOUSLY APPLIES ALL OF THE
LIGHTNING SPEED, COMING UP WITH A WORKABLE
SOLUTION WITHIN AN
EXTREMELY SHORT PERIOD OF DELIBERATION. THE
REALIST HAS FEW
EXPECTATIONS OF [a] FANCIFUL NATURE, AND AS
WOULD BE EXPECTED, IS
GROUNDED IN REALITY.

KARMA — THEY KNOW
would like to return to the comment you made
at the beginning of the
evening on the origin of the species, homo
sapiens. We seem to ignore
it with our egotistical questions.
HAVE DISCUSSED THE PROBLEM OF PERSONAL AGENDAS
BEFORE. WE DO
UNDERSTAND THIS DRIVE AND WE DO NOT DEPLORE
IT. IT IS JUST THAT WE
HAVE MUCH MORE TIME THAN ANY OF YOU, AND WE
WOULD BE OF AS MUCH HELP
AS POSSIBLE IN THE LIMITED TIME AVAILABLE.
BEING IN A MORE INTIMATE
SITUATION WOULD ALSO ELIMINATE THIS PROBLEM.
WE WILL DISCUSS THIS
QUESTION OF ORIGIN AGAIN SOON. IT IS IMPORTANT
THAT YOU HAVE SOME
FOUNDATION IN THIS BEFORE YOU BEGIN TO
