Oakland

Present: RH and AH, L, CC, MJ, JH and JH, SM, SC and RC, NA, ET, CS.

RH: I am starting to see both sides of a problem, seeing things in the round. I am wondering about this?

THANK YOU. WHEN YOU BEGIN TO SEE THESE “SIDES” AS MERELY ALTERNATIVES AND NOT AS EITHER NEGATIVE OR POSITIVE THEN YOU WILL KNOW THAT ESSENCE IS LOOKING AT THE SITUATION. UNTIL THEN YOU CAN BE SURE THAT THE PERSONALITY IS REACTING TO A PROPOSITION WHICH SEEMS THREATENING. YOU WERE ALWAYS TIRED BUT YOUR WORK ETHIC WOULD NOT ALLOW YOU TO REST. AT LEAST NOW YOU ARE IN CONTROL OF THAT TO SOME EXTENT.

RH: When we see the negative side of something, is this from personality rather than essence?

WE WOULD AGREE WITH THAT.

There is no positive or negative in essence. True?

WE WOULD AGREE WITH THAT. BUT YOU MUST REMEMBER THAT IN ESSENCE ONE EXPERIENCES, ONE DOES NOT EVALUATE. WE WOULD POINT OUT THAT THAT WHICH IS THE SOUL OPERATING FROM ESSENCE FEELS THAT WHICH WE CALLED “AGAPE”, AND THAT IS A FEELING OF TRANQUILLITY, OF PEACE, AND WE DOUBT THAT THE PERSONALITY OF MANY EARTHBOUND SOULS WOULD CONSIDER THESE PARTICULARLY STRONG EMOTIONS.

RH: I feel that a conscious soul has inner fires burning.

WE DO NOT DISPUTE THAT. THE ENERGY WILL BE AVAILABLE IN QUANTITIES, NOW UNAVAILABLE TO YOU, SIMPLY BECAUSE YOU WILL NOT BE LEAKING IT OUT THROUGH FANTASIES AND HOSTILITIES.

Is everyone’s Essence bored?

IN THIS SOCIETY WE WOULD SAY THE MAJORITY, YES. TO STIMULATE IT OF COURSE IT MUST BE PRESENTED WITH CHALLENGES, NOT STRUGGLES. WHEN THE ESSENCE HAS TO STRUGGLE IT REFUSES. STRUGGLING IS NOT WORTH THE EFFORT AND IT KNOWS THIS. INSOLUBLE PROBLEMS ARE GOOD EXAMPLES OF STRUGGLES THAT THE PERSONALITY LOVES AND THE ESSENCE FLEES FROM THROUGH BOREDOM.

What is Essence challenge?

SPIRITUAL GROWTH, FOR EXAMPLE; ALL FORMS OF STUDIOUS ENDEAVOR WHEN UNDERTAKEN FOR THE SHEER JOY OF THE UNDERTAKING; SOME FORMS OF RELIGIOUS PURSUIT; WORK THAT IS IN ESSENCE: THAT IS TO SAY, FOR INSTANCE, PAINTING WAS IN ESSENCE FOR THE OLD ARTISAN RAPHAEL, AND HIS ESSENCE WAS NOT BORED.

What is in essence for Warriors besides fighting?

MANY POSITIONS INVOLVING ADMINISTRATIONS AND LEADERSHIP; EVEN SUPERVISORY POSITIONS IN PUBLIC RECREATION AREAS. WE KNOW OF MANY MATURE AND OLD WARRIORS IN THIS COUNTRY NOW WORKING AS PARK RANGERS AND THEIR ESSENCES ARE NOT BORED.

How does false personality work? Where does it come from? How does it have to do with Overleaves?

THE OVERLEAVES EXERT AN ENORMOUS INFLUENCE ON THE ULTIMATE PERSONALITY. THAT [false personality] EMERGES FROM THE CULTURAL IMPRINTING AND DETERMINES HOW THE GIVEN FRAGMENT WILL ADAPT OR NOT ADAPT TO A SET OF SIMILAR LIFE CIRCUMSTANCES. FOR INSTANCE, ONE WOULD EXPECT AN EMOTIONALLY CENTERED MIDCYCLE MATURE PRIEST TO REACT WITH MORE LASTING STIGMATA TO SAY FORCIBLE RAPE THAN A MOVING CENTERED OLD SCHOLAR.

Someone asked about her mother dying soon.

IT APPEARS THAT WAY, YES, BUT THIS LADY WISHES TO BE RELEASED AND WILL UNDOUBTEDLY HAVE HER WISH SOON, AS THE BODY HAS USED UP ITS TIME, AND IS NOW USELESS TO HER. YES. THIS IS A SIXTH LEVEL YOUNG PRIEST IN ACCEPTANCE.

ET: I am reading a book by Rex Stanford. Does Michael have any comments about apparitions?

THESE APPARITIONS ARE VERY OFTEN NO MORE THAN THE HALLUCINATIONS OF A HYSTERICAL PERSONALITY, IN THE CASE OF RELIGIOUS ASCETICS. IN SOME CASES THERE HAVE BEEN APPEARANCES OF ASTRAL BEINGS WHO SIMPLY ASSUME THE CHARACTER DESIRED BY THE MEDIUM. THE MAN STANFORD IS ABLE TO LET GO OF HIS OWN ENERGY TO A DEGREE, WHERE HE COULD PRODUCE SUCH AN APPARITION. THE PREDICTION OF GREAT DISASTER IS AN INTERESTING PHENOMENON, AND OCCURS WITH STARTLING REGULARITY ALL OVER THE INHABITED UNIVERSE. SOME ASTRAL BEINGS FIND THIS IRRESISTIBLE. WE HAVE NO DOUBT THEY WILL, TOO.

Is there any validity to these predictions of disaster?

IT IS NOT VALID.

The pilgrims to Lourdes — are they actually healed?

THEY WISH TO BE HEALED. OFTEN THEIR ILLNESSES ARE STILL WHOLLY PSYCHOSOMATIC, AND THERE HAS BEEN NO STRUCTURAL DAMAGE. HYSTERICAL PARALYSIS IS PARTICULARLY EASY TO CURE AT LOURDES.

Invalidate:

WE WOULD SAY THAT MOST OF IT IS THE MAN’S ATTEMPT TO EXPLAIN THE PHENOMENON WHICH HE WISHES TO BELIEVE, AND IT IS FOR THE MOST PART NOT VALID.

Is the date of death predetermined?

THERE IS OFTEN MANY YEARS LEFT TO THE BODY, THOUGH AFTER THE PARTICULAR LIFE TASK IS DONE WITH THESE CHILDREN THAT WAS THE INIATIAN POSSIBLE AMOUNT WHICH THEY COULD ACCOMPLISH CERTAIN SEQUENCES [sic]. MOST SUICIDES HAVE “COPPED OUT” ON ASTRAL CONTRACTS.

Is the date of death known?

NO. ONE OF THE STUDENTS IN THIS ROOM, FOR INSTANCE, HAS THE GENETIC POTENTIAL FOR LIVING TO OVER ONE HUNDRED YEARS, BUT THERE ARE MANY SPOKES ON THAT STUDENTS’ WHEEL.

What does Michael mean by ”spokes”?

BY “SPOKES” WE SPEAK OF THE MANY CHOICES YET TO BE MADE BY THIS RELATIVELY YOUNG PERSON, AND THE MYRIAD ALTERNATIVE COURSES THE LIFE MAY TAKE.

Who is it?

HAD WE WISHED TO GIVE THIS INFORMATION WE WOULD HAVE.

Comment on Gurdjieff — he spoke of persons who knew when they would die. ET made the comment about his brother knowing at what age he would die — and others would die.

SOME SEEM TO KNOW. CERTAINLY IT IS POSSIBLE TO ACCELERATE THE PROCESS OF DEATH, AS IT IS WITH ALL OTHER PROCESSES. ALSO THERE IS A VERY DEFINITE AURA SURROUNDING THE DYING BODY, AND THOSE WHO ARE SENSITIVE CAN PICK IT UP.

MJ: I saw a woman on the bus. She was different — from another country. She looked attractive and I liked her, but then when I looked her in the eyes I had difficulty.

PRIMARILY THE DIFFICULTY HERE LIES IN THE FACT THAT THIS WAS A DEEPLY TROUBLED SOUL WITH AN OPINION OF HERSELF THAT CAUSED YOU TO FEEL THE ”EVIL”.

What was her soul level?

A MID CYCLE MATURE PRIEST.

Are etheric auras thicker than others?

NO, JUST BRIGHTER.

Do they vary from time to time?

VERY MUCH SO, YES.

CC: What is the SRGA of EL?

THE LADY WOULD BE AN ACTIVE STUDENT, YES. THIS IS A FIFTH LEVEL MATURE SAGE, MOVING CENTERED, MERCURIAL MOSTLY, WITH SOME LUNAR. YES, SHE IS IMPATIENT. THIS LADY IS AN IDEALIST IN GROWTH, AND IN THE POWER MODE.

What is her aura?

PINKISH-VIOLET.

What is the SRGA on TL.

T.L. IS A FOURTH LEVEL MATURE SLAVE IN DOMINANCE. YES, HE WOULD MAKE AN OBSERVANT STUDENT, AS THIS IS HIS MODE. HE IS NOT DYNAMIC, BUT STOIC. THIS MAN IS MOSTLY VENUSIAN, SOME LUNAR, AND IS IN THE INTELLECTUAL PART OF EMOTIONAL CENTER. HE IS ARROGANT, AND [his] AURA IS REDDISH-GOLD.

What is the SRG on their adopted child?

THIS [is a] SIXTH LEVEL OLD WARRIOR IN GROWTH, WITH IMPATIENCE POSSIBLE BUT YET UNMANIFESTED. THIS CHILD IS A SPIRITUALIST IN THE PASSION MODE, WITH A BLUE-VIOLET AURA.

What is the Bodytype and aura of S.?

THIS LADY IS MOSTLY JOVIAL, SOME VENUSIAN, [and] HER AURA IS YELLOW-RED.

Someone had a question about W and his overuse of the drug PCP.

THIS MAN NEEDS TO KNOW THAT THOSE EXPERIENCES CAN BE HAD WITHOUT [psychotropic] DRUGS, OF COURSE. YES, HE IS PRETTY DEPENDENT UPON THIS FAIRLY DANGEROUS CRUTCH NOW — THE ESSENCE ENJOYS THE TEMPORARY LIBERATION. YES, THE LADY COULD PROFIT, BUT SHE CANNOT BRING ABOUT ANY CHANGE IN HIM — HE MUST DO THIS HIMSELF.

Would he reject this?

HE WILL NOT LIKE THIS INFORMATION, BUT HE MAY BE FORCED TO LOOK AT IT IF HIS SUPPLY [of psychotropic drugs] IS SUDDENLY CUT OFF.

JH: This question is about a couple we are going to spend the weekend with in Tahoe: Could they hear the teaching?

THIS LADY FINDS THE SOURCE DIFFICULT TO VERIFY BUT IS RECEPTIVE TO THE INFORMATION. THE MAN FINDS ALL THINGS THAT SMACK OF MYSTICISM UNUSUAL LOWABLE [sic], OR PERHAPS UNPALATABLE WOULD BE A FINER CHOICE OF WORDS.

We discussed a potluck planned with YS's group. The date has been set as July 14, 1974, and is to be RH and AH’s.

A. is paranoid about JH — he can’t look at her. Why not? Has he been scared off?

OF COURSE THE MAN A. IS AWARE OF THE EXISTENCE OF THIS THORN IN HIS SIDE, BUT NOT OF THE TOTAL CONTEXT. HE IS TERRIFIED MORE OF THE UNKNOWN THAN THE KNOWN. ALSO, HE PERCEIVES THE CHANGES IN YOU AND CANNOT ACCEPT THESE.

JH: When should I get off session (ruling body)? [sic]

WE WOULD OF COURSE ALWAYS SAY THAT WHENEVER IT FEELS RIGHT, BUT YOUR ACCEPTANCE STANDS IN THE WAY OF HIS FEELING RIGHT AT THE PRESENT TIME. WE WOULD SAY, J.H., THAT YOU SHOULD EXAMINE YOUR INTERNAL COMMITMENT TO THE ISSUES OF THIS BODY AND GO FROM THERE. [This applies to] EVERYONE.

Everyone she talks to leaves. Is there anyone I should talk to before I leave?

THERE ARE MANY THERE THAT YOU COULD REACH. WE ARE NOT ASKING YOU TO LEAVE, ONLY TO EVALUATE AND APPRAISE.

Should I talk to anyone about the teaching?

IN PART, YES.

What other part?

YOUR OWN EXAMPLE.

M: Is there a Sequence between CC and I?

THE SEQUENCE THAT IS THERE IS NOT SO MUCH WHAT YOU SEE. THERE IS ALSO SOME INCOMPATIBILITY OF OVERLEAVES HERE. THE SEQUENCE INVOLVES A COMPLEX SITUATION OF SPIRITUAL SEEKING, AND THE TEACHING THAT YOU WERE INVOLVED IN SOME SIX HUNDRED YEARS AGO, AND THIS [Sequence] SHE HAS DONE. AT THAT TIME YOU WERE STUDYING IN A CONVENT AND WERE RESPONSIBLE FOR HELPING THIS MONK TO TRANSFER TO ANOTHER REGION WHERE HE COULD PURSUE HIS LIFE WORK WITHOUT THE INTERFERENCE OF A DOMINEERING ABBOTT.

M: Do I have a karmic ribbon with JH? He says I was a slave of his in the 18th century, I stole some money, and he then died.

HE FEELS [the] RIBBON IS OVERPAID.

I don’t feel that it is that simple.

THAT ACKNOWLEDGMENT ON HIS PART IS GENUINE. HE DID LOOK AT THE RIBBON AND WAS ABLE TO MAKE THE CONNECTION. YES, YOU CAN CONSIDER THIS DEBT PAID. ANY MORE CONTRIBUTIONS THAT YOU MAKE WILL HAVE TO BE CHALKED UP TO YOUR CHIEF FEATURE (Martyrdom). THE JOVIAL VENUSIAN IS FAR LESS ETHEREAL THAN THE LUNAR AND DOES NOT GIVE ONE THE SENSE OF COOLNESS THAT THE TRUE LUNAR GIVES. THIS LADY IS TIRED NOW AND THE JOVIAL NATURE IS SUBDUED.

AH: What is her Bodytype?

THIS LADY IS MOSTLY JOVIAL, SOME LUNAR.

NA: Was I an actress in a previous life?

YES, A VERY GREAT ACTRESS. YOU BROUGHT MUCH JOY AND LAUGHTER INTO THE LIVES OF MANY, BUT IN PARTICULAR TO TWO QUITE PROMINENT, AND, AT THE TIME, SADDENED PERSONALITIES. THE SEQUENCE WILL IN PART BE REPEATED IN THIS LIFE CYCLE, AS ONE OF THOSE PERSONS IS NOW A PART OF YOUR PRESENT LIFE. THIS WAS IN THE EARLY PART OF THE 18TH CENTURY. YOU WERE ABLE TO CONVEY THE EXPERIENCE OF LIFE SO SUCCESSFULLY FROM THE STAGE, AS WELL AS FROM THE LIFE, THAT YOUR INFLUENCE WAS QUITE WIDESPREAD.

Where was this?

THIS WAS IN FRANCE, AND YES, THE EIGHTEEN HUNDREDS.

RH: Did I know her?

YES.

Could we recall about him/her?

YES. YOU HAVE A SEQUENCE THAT YOU AGREED UPON WITH ANOTHER STUDENT.

By “student” do you mean someone in this group?

DEFINITELY. THE SEQUENCE IS NOT WITH YOU, _____. IN THE CASE OF SEQUENCES WE WOULD PREFER THAT THE STUDENTS RECOGNIZE THEM. WE COULD EASILY MANUFACTURE MANY SEQUENCES — FERTILE IMAGINATION.

How do I discover this [Sequence]?

UNFOLDING EVENTS, MOST LIKELY.

Do I have a Sequence with _____ or _____?

THE LADY DOES NOT HAVE A SEQUENCE WITH _____, BUT WE DID NOT SAY THAT SHE AND _____ HAD NOT KNOWN EACH OTHER BEFORE. THEY HAVE [known each other] MANY TIMES.

Have I known everyone in the group before?

IN THE PRESENT GROUP STRUCTURE, YES.

I get stronger things from auto[matic writing]. I have gotten an important task in this life and I’d better shape up. Is this valid?

YES, THIS IS VALID FOR YOU AS WELL AS FOR OTHERS IN THIS ROOM.

(We were told when up at Lake Tahoe from _____ that something significant would happen.)

I feel I am ready for my task. What is it?

ONE OF THE TASKS TO WHICH YOU AGREED IS TO INTRODUCE THOSE AROUND YOU TO THE TACTILE SENSE WHILE LARGELY AT [word deleted]. IT THIS CULTURE, TRUE [sic]. IN OTHER WORDS, HELP THEM TO OPEN THIS DOOR.

[Comment deleted.]

Is there another one?

ONE OTHER WE HAVE IN PART DISCUSSED WITH YOU, AND THAT INVOLVES COMMUNICATION, AND CAN BE SATISFIED THROUGH YOUR TEACHING (your creativity).

What are my [life] tasks?

OF COURSE, THE MORE OBVIOUS ONE INVOLVES SERVICE TO THOSE WITH WHOM YOU COME IN CONTACT. THIS ONE YOU ARE CURRENTLY FIGHTING, BUT WOULD IN THE FINAL INNING FIND FULFILLMENT IN IF YOU WOULD FOLLOW UP ON THE PREVIOUS SUGGESTION. YOU MIGHT SURPRISINGLY DELINEATE YOUR TASKS QUICKLY.

I would volunteer for a children’s hospital and cuddle kids, and fix their covers. (She was a pediatric nurse.)

NA: What is my expression of creativity?

THE ONE AREA WHERE YOUR REPRESSION HAS DONE YOU IN DURING THIS LIFE IS THE NORMAL VERBAL EXUBERANCE OF THE SAGE. ONE OF YOUR VERY CREATIVE AREAS CAN EASILY BE IN YOUR UNCONSCIOUS BUT EXCELLENT CHOICE OF WORDS. YOU COULD BE EXTREMELY PERSUASIVE IF YOU WOULD NOW ALLOW ALL OF THIS TO COME OUT. YOU ARE NOW QUITE PERSUASIVE PROFESSIONALLY, AND COULD BE [likewise] IN ALL OF LIFE’S ARENAS.
