22 November 1973
THANKSGIVING
Present: WC, EM and (his mother) LM, SC and RC, RH and AH, CH, SB.
EM: Why is it that Old souls with united Fragments are not superior in
competence to Young souls who have a smaller amount of united Fragments?
THE OLD SOUL, AT A DEEPER LEVEL, REALIZES THE FUTILITY AND TEMPORARY NATURE
OF MATERIAL ACHIEVEMENTS, AND THEREFORE LACKS THE DRIVE TO ACCOMPLISH THIS.
YOU ARE ALL EXTREMELY COMPETENT, EVEN IN ROLES THAT ARE OUT OF ESSENCE. THE
DRIVE IS NOW FOR SPIRITUAL EVOLUTION IN ALL OF YOU. THEREFORE YOU ARE
INCLINED TO LET THE REST SLIDE. ANY ONE OF YOU COULD ACHIEVE ANYTHING YOU
WISH TO DO. WHY DIDN'T YOU? FOR INSTANCE, E.M. USES POVERTY AS AN EXCUSE,
BUT THIS IS INVALID. MANY POVERTY-STRICKEN YOUNG SOULS HAVE ACHIEVED
WONDROUS THINGS THROUGH SHEAR STRUGGLE. S.C. USES THE SAME EXCUSE.
EM: If I try the stock market, could I make money without working so hard?
IT IS LIKE ANY OTHER MONETARY GAME AND DEPENDS ON THE WHIMSY OF THE ECONOMY
AND HOW ASTUTE A GUESSER YOU ARE. IT WOULD NOT RELIEVE YOUR FINANCIAL
ANXIETY. IT WOULD CREATE A NEW ANXIETY-LADEN SET OF OBSTACLES.
RH: I would like verification of WL's soul level.
W.L. IS A FIFTH LEVEL MATURE SOUL.
RH: I would like to ask abut SB's role. I believe she once was said to be an
Artisan, and last Tuesday it was said she was a Warrior.
S.B. IS A WARRIOR. THE INFORMATION WAS GIVEN CORRECTLY BUT TRANSMISSION WAS
COMING THROUGH A GREAT DEAL OF BIAS.
EM: What was the essence of the teachings of Christ?
TRUTH IS THE GREATEST GOOD AND LOVE IS THE HIGHEST TRUTH. GOOD IS ITS OWN
REWARD, AS IS TRUTH.
EM: I'm seeking for a practical way of practicing the teachings of Christ.
Can you tell how this can be accomplished for me?
THAT SHOULD BE SELF-EVIDENT.
RC: Could we ask for a general comment?
HONESTY WITHOUT GUILE, SIMPLICITY WITHOUT POVERTY OF SOUL, LOVE WITHOUT
MATERIAL EXPECTATIONS, EMPTYING THE LIFE OF ALL NONESSENTIAL CONSIDERATIONS,
THE ENDLESS CYCLES OF EVOLUTION WITH THE PHYSICAL PLANE BEING THE CRUDEST
AND ROUGHEST THESE ARE THE THINGS EMPHASIZED IN THE TRUE TEACHINGS OF
CHRIST.
EM: Whereby Jesus' statement "I can do nothing"?
HE COULD DO NOTHING. THAT IS TRUE OF ALL, WITHOUT THE OTHER FORCES HOLDING
THE UNIVERSE TOGETHER ALL OF THESE COMBINED ARE NECESSARY TO PERPETUATE
THE CYCLES. KNOWING HOW IT HAPPENS DOES NOT GIVE YOU CART BLANCHE TO GO AND
DO IT. MANY PEOPLE WERE DISAPPOINTED IN JESUS BECAUSE HE DID NOTHING
PHYSICAL ABOUT THEIR WOES. THIS WILL BE THE CASE AGAIN. THE INFINITE SOUL
DOES NOT COME TO LEAD THE TROOPS. THE INFINITE SOUL COMES TO BRING THE LOGOS
TO BEAR. IT IS UP TO YOU TO LISTEN AND TAKE YOUR OWN ACTION.
EM: What is the meaning in the scriptures that Christ died to save our sins?
It makes no sense to me.
IT DOES NOT MAKE ANY SENSE TO US EITHER. IN THE LITERAL SENSE, IT IS
MEANINGLESS. HE DID NOT SAY THAT. THAT WAS PERPETUATED BY ZEALOTS.
EM: Where is Paul now?
THE FRAGMENT THAT WAS SAUL HAS NOT BEEN REBORN YET, BUT WILL BE SOON. HE
WILL BE A FIFTH LEVEL OLD SOUL [Priest] THIS TIME, AND MAYBE HE WILL LISTEN.
EM: Paul contradicts himself. His appeal was ludicrous. Two and a half years
later when he arrived in Rome, nobody knew what he was talking about.
HE MADE MANY ERRORS. THAT IS HOW YOU LEARN.
RH: I've read much on the crucifixion and have never been able to figure out
why it happened.
HE WAS A THREAT TO JOSEPH CAIPHAS [the High Priest] WHO WAS GETTING RICH ON
TEMPLE FUNDS, AND THERE WAS A SUITABLE PAWN AVAILABLE IN THE PERSON OF THE
JUDEAN GOVERNOR [Herod Antipas] WHO WAS A COWARD AND WHO WAS ALREADY IN
TROUBLE WITH [Roman Emperor] TIBERIUS OVER OTHER THINGS. THE INFINITE SOUL
CARES NOTHING ABOUT THE PHYSICAL BODY, AND WHEN IT WAS REALIZED HOW THE DECK
WAS STACKED, IT WAS SEEN AS A CONVENIENT WAY TO SPEEDILY FULFILL THE
PROPHESY.
EM: What is meant by His saying He was the Son of God?
YOU ARE ALL "SONS OF GOD". THIS MAN, BEFORE THE INFINITE SOUL MANIFESTED,
REFERRED TO HIMSELF AS THE SERVANT OF MAN. THE INFINITE SOUL SAID, "I AM THE
WORD". THE INFINITE SOUL MANIFESTED DURING A PERIOD OF INTENSE MEDITATION
AND FASTING, AND "THE SERMON ON THE MOUNT" WAS THE FIRST UTTERING OF THE
INFINITE SOUL.
EM: Did the man Jesus become conscious after the forty days and forty
nights?
THIS MAN WAS AN OCCULT MASTER. HE WAS A FINAL LEVEL OLD SOUL.
EM: What is the meaning of, "I am the word"?
THE LOGOS, THE TRUTH, THE ABSOLUTE, THE ORDER OF THINGS.
EM: "Thy kingdom come, (when you hear the word,) thy will be done" could
you comment on this?
THE WORD IS UTTERED, THE WAY IS MADE KNOWN; IF YOU CHOSE THE PATH, EVOLUTION
WILL OCCUR.
RH: It makes me wonder, if evolution occurs through cycles regardless of
what one does, what is the point of the Infinite soul manifesting? A lot of
people quit their jobs to follow Him, and then lead useless lives. The
implications are not to quit these things unless you are on the path instead
of quitting your job and sitting around waiting for the "king", and
"judgment day".
THIS WAS PROMULGATED BY A MAN NAMED JOHN, WHO HAD A SERIES OF NIGHTMARES. IT
WAS NOT PLEASANT TO WATCH SOMEONE YOU LOVED DIE IN A PARTICULARLY HORRIBLE
MANNER. THERE WAS AN EARTHQUAKE AND AN ECLIPSE THAT DAY COMPLETELY NATURAL
PHENOMENA, BELIEVE IT OR NOT. THIS GAVE RISE TO MANY BAD DREAMS IN ALREADY
SUSCEPTIBLE SUPERSTITIOUS PEOPLE.
EM: Could you comment on the second coming being in the clouds?
HE WAS WARNING THEM NOT TO EXPECT ANY PHYSICAL HELP FROM HIM. THEY COULD NOT
CONCEIVE OF THE HELP IN THE ABSTRACT, AND TO HAVE TOLD THEM THAT IN TWO
THOUSAND YEARS HE WOULD REPEAT THIS PERFORMANCE WOULD HAVE BEEN MEANINGLESS.
BY THE TIME LUCANUS QUIRINUS [Luke] REACHED THE HOLY LAND, THE MOTHER OF
JESUS WAS COMPLETELY INSANE. SHE HAD BORNE FAR MORE THAN COULD BE EXPECTED
OF ONE FAIRLY SIMPLE PEASANT WOMAN.
EM: Luke didn't come until after Jesus was crucified, that is right. Was I
there?
YOU WERE NOT IN JUDEA. YOU WERE IN ROME.
EM: Which Roman was I?
YOU WERE GREEK, NOT ROMAN. YOU WERE A TUTOR. YOU DID HEAR ABOUT JESUS
ALMOST EVERYONE DID. MAIL SERVICE WAS VERY GOOD.
EM: The way I have understood the teachings of Christ, through meditation or
praying, one can elevate himself to receive the word by communion with God.
That is what He meant by "receiving the word of God". That is what is meant
by being "under grace" all troubles melt away. Can I achieve this state?
YOU WILL ACHIEVE THIS STATE WHETHER [or not] YOU DO IT THIS TIME IS UP TO
YOU. YOU KNOW HOW TO DO IT: MEDITATION, CONCENTRATION, RIGHT-THINKING,
STUDY.
EM: Could you elaborate on the third chapter of Genesis about what the
knowledge of good and evil is?
KNOWLEDGE OF POSITIVE AND NEGATIVE FORCE.
SB: There seems to be a conflict of my [Warrior] role and my present state
of work. Am I in the wrong thing professionally?
YOUR ESSENCE WOULD BE MORE AT PEACE IN A LEADERSHIP ROLE, YES. YOU DISLIKE
BEING SUBORDINATE. BEING SELF-EMPLOYED HAS ALWAYS BEEN YOUR ROLE BEFORE.
SB: What was I in my immediate past life?
YOU WERE CHIEF OF POLICE IN BERLIN AT THE TURN OF THE LAST CENTURY.
SB: What could I be doing that would be better for me?
THAT IS UP TO YOU.
EM: What have I done in past lives to account for the physical burden I now
have?
THE PAIN YOU INFLICTED ON LOVED ONES IN THE PAST IS A PART OF KARMA FOR YOU,
E.M. ALSO, YOU HAVE ALWAYS HAD A SCHOLARLY INTEREST IN RELIGION, BUT WITH A
SAVAGE BENT MORE THAN ONCE; FOR INSTANCE, DURING THE CRUSADES AND THE
INQUISITION.
EM: What on earth did I do?
IN BOTH INSTANCES, E.M. TOOK AN ACTIVE PART IN PROSELYTIZING BY FORCE.
DURING THE INQUISITION, HE WAS AN INFORMER.
EM: I have been studying Christianity for seven years, and when people in
the laboratory where I work ask me about things in the Bible, I have refused
to tell them. Why?
YOU SAID TOO MUCH BEFORE.
SB: Am I burning karma by being in a subordinate role?
JUST A POOR CHOICE. YOU WILL MAKE SEVERAL CHANGES SOON, WE THINK.
SB: Any hint in the direction I might take?
SHOULD WE GO THROUGH IT ALL OVER AGAIN, S.B.? MEDITATION, CONCENTRATION,
FASTING, STUDY, RIGHT-THINKING. THIS IS THE MAGIC ENLIGHTENMENT FORMULA,
LIKE E = MC2.
This question was lost.
WE THINK IT IS A GOOD WAY.
SB: Why am I sleeping so much? I go to bed at 7:30 every night. :
YOU ARE SLEEPING BECAUSE YOU ARE BORED. BOREDOM IS A VICIOUS CYCLE. IT
CAUSES SLEEP, WHICH CAUSES MORE ENNUI, WHICH IN TURN CAUSES A GREAT NEED FOR
SLEEP. [Watching] TELEVISION IS A FORM OF SLEEP. YOU ARE JUST MORE OVERT IN
YOUR ACTIONS [by actually sleeping instead of watching TV]. YOU MUST
CONSCIOUSLY BREAK THE CYCLE.
EM: Is hypnosis a form of sleep? I'm wary of it as such. Why do I sleep so
much?
HYPNOSIS IS A FORM OF CONCENTRATION, NOT MEDITATION. YOU GO TO SLEEP BECAUSE
YOU ARE TIRED, E.M. YOU DO ACTUALLY NEED MORE SLEEP BECAUSE OF YOUR PHYSICAL
DISABILITY.
EM: Could you answer the three questions about my mother: i.e., Role, soul
[Age] and Bodytype? (We speculated on late Mature Priest or Sage, Lunar.)
L.M. IS A FINAL LEVEL MATURE SOUL, ALMOST TOTALLY UNDER THE INFLUENCE OF THE
MOON, SOME VENUSIAN. THIS LADY IS A SLAVE. (She serves a humanitarian role.)
(No one in the room besides EM and his mother knew her name, and it came out
on the board, knowing.)
SB: I would like to ask about my friend, P. I think she is a Baby soul, but
I have no idea what her Role is. I would also like to ask about a friend,
Z I'd say late cycle Old Priest.
Z. IS A MID CYCLE YOUNG PRIEST. P. IS A MID CYCLE BABY SCHOLAR.
SB: She can't even spell.
CH: [A Seventh Level Young Priest] I become irritated when I hear older
souls talking down young souls. I hear what they say and it makes me mad.
YOU CAN HEAR THE KNOWLEDGE. MOST YOUNG SOULS ARE UNWILLING TO DEVOTE
THEMSELVES TO THE LIFE OF CONTEMPLATION THAT IS NECESSARY TO CAUSE THE WORDS
TO FRUITION. THIS IS AN ACTIVE CYCLE, C.H., THE ONE IN WHICH THE MOST
VALUABLE LESSONS ARE LEARNED AND MOST OF THE MISTAKES ARE MADE. IT IS LIKE
ANY SYSTEM OF LEARNING: THE INFANT SOUL IS IN KINDERGARTEN, THE BABY SOUL IS
LIFE'S ELEMENTARY SCHOOL, THE YOUNG SOUL IN GYMNASIA SCHOOL, THE MATURE SOUL
IN COLLEGE, AND THE OLD SOUL IS OUT IN THE WORLD.
AH: Did I ever commit suicide in past lives?
YOU NEVER SUICIDED.
EM: How many Fragments are united in my Entity?
THERE ARE NOW FIVE HUNDRED UNITED FRAGMENTS. THE DOMINANT THREAD THAT IS
E.M. HAS BEEN MALE MOST OF THE TIME, THE SAME AS S.C. SCHOLARS DO NOT LIKE
BEING FEMALE AND DO NOT CHOOSE THIS ROLE OFTEN. ARTISANS ENJOY BEING FEMALE,
AND SO DO PRIESTS.
EM: Maybe that is why I block my past female lives. If I set aside vacation
time (40 days) for meditation, how long will it take for me to reach the
state I want?
LONGER THAN YOU HAVE VACATION. YOU MUST MAKE IT A PART OF YOUR LIFE.
SB: How many Fragments do I have?
THE WARRIORS, SCHOLARS, KINGS AND SAGES ARE MASCULINE ROLES. YOU [a Warrior]
DO NOT LIKE BEING FEMALE EITHER.
Then Priests, Artisans and Slaves are feminine?
YES.
THERE ARE ONE HUNDRED AND TWENTY FRAGMENTS UNITED. WARRIORS DO NOT AS A RULE
[spiritually] ACCELERATE RAPIDLY. THIS PERTAINS TO YOU, TOO, C.H. BECAUSE
YOU ARE A PRIEST YOU WILL ACCELERATE MUCH FASTER THAN THOSE AROUND YOU. THIS
IS WHY YOU FEEL THE RESENTMENT NOW.
EM: If a Scholar, Sage, Warrior, and King role are masculine, why is it that
a female would choose any of these Roles? Does this mean that I've been male
more often than not? Is this why I have a tendency toward "cool" thinking
and not being a giving person. I do not have love to express. I am cold and
analytical. (Everyone expresses from false personality, which cannot love.
EM feels he does not have love to give. If you are a real true being in
essence, then you can love.) I feel the male is more aggressive than the
female. (Roles in the soul are masculine and feminine, not the soul.)
SB: Is my child, BB, a Warrior? I want to confirm that.
YES HE IS. THE CHILD IS A FIFTH LEVEL OLD SOUL.
EM: What are a few outstanding Scholars in my Entity?
THE DOMINANT THREAD THAT IS EDGAR WAS AN ASTRONOMER NAMED TYCHO BRAYHE
(World book spelling: Brayche; Danish). IS THIS ACCOMPLISHMENT ENOUGH? (RC
added that he made the preliminary triangulations on calculating the size of
stars and planets.)
CH: How many Fragments are united in my Entity?
C.H.'S ENTITY CONSISTS OF FIVE HUNDRED PRIESTS, FOUR HUNDRED SAGES, AND ONE
HUNDRED KINGS.
RC: How many Fragments are united in my Entity?
IN YOU THERE ARE NOW ONE HUNDRED AND THIRTY FIVE FRAGMENTS.
RH:  Am I [a Fifth Level Old soul] correct in assuming in Role I have lived
5000 previous lives? (One hundred fifty Fragments, each Fifth Level Old soul
= 4800 lives.)
THIS IS NOT COMPLETELY VALID. THE DOMINANT FRAGMENT, IN OTHER WORDS, THE
THREAD THAT IS STILL DRAWN TO THE PHYSICAL PLANE, REMEMBERS ONLY THOSE LIVES
THAT PERTAINED TO IT EXCLUSIVELY. IT ONLY HAS INDIRECT ACCESS TO THE
INTEGRATED FRAGMENTS [of its Entity].
RH: Do PJ, ET, and I represent all the Artisan Fragments?
THERE ARE FIVE OTHERS.
RH: Does the dominant Fragment have indirect access to my previous lives?
THE INTEGRATED FRAGMENTS OF YOUR ENTITY WHICH ARE A PART OF THE LOW ASTRAL
BODY HAVE A TREMENDOUS PULL ON YOU. IT IS ALMOST AS THOUGH THEY ARE CALLING
YOU HOME. YOU ARE RIGHT THOUGH, R.H., IT WILL BE CURTAINS FOR THOSE WHO
INTEGRATE. THE OTHERS WILL CONTINUE AS LONG AS THEY ARE EARTHBOUND BY KARMIC
RIBBONS AND HAVE INCOMPLETE MONADS.
RH: Who will be the dominant Fragment between PJ, ET and me?
THIS WILL DEPEND ON THE EVOLUTION. RIGHT NOW IT WOULD APPEAR THAT E.T. HAS A
FEW MORE INCOMPLETE[Monad]S. THE FRAGMENTS YOU HOLD IN COMMON WITH E.T. AND
P.J. ARE THE SAME. THESE FRAGMENTS DID NOT FALL BY THE WAYSIDE. THEY
EXPERIENCED ALL OF LIFE.
RH: You mean my 150 Fragments are the same as PJ's and ET's?
THAT IS VALID.
RH: How can I have the same Fragments as ET and PJ?
THE STRENGTH COMES FROM THOSE FRAGMENTS WHICH HAVE ALREADY INTEGRATED AND
ARE NO LONGER SUBJECTED TO KARMA. YOU ARE A PART OF THIS ENTITY, NOT
SEPARATE FROM IT, BUT THERE IS NOW A PARTITION BETWEEN YOU AND THOSE
FRAGMENTS AVAILABLE, SO TO SPEAK. IT IS UP TO YOU WHETHER [or not] YOU CAN
DRAW UPON THE CONGLOMERATE KNOWLEDGE. YOU MUST FIRST BE ABLE TO PERCEIVE
THAT A LARGE PART OF YOUR TIME IS NOW BEING SPENT OFF THE PHYSICAL PLANE,
AND THIS TIME GROWS LONGER AS MORE AND MORE OF THE ORIGINAL ENTITY BECOMES
INTEGRATED. THE PULL IS ALMOST IRRESISTIBLE NOW. MORE THAN HALF OF THE
ALLOTTED SLEEP YOU NOW SPEND ON THE ASTRAL PLANE; P.J. TOO.
RH: Are 150 Fragments incarnate in me on this physical plane?
NO. THERE ARE MORE THAN ONE HUNDRED FRAGMENTS INTEGRATED [on the astral
plane]. IT REALLY AMOUNTS TO THE SAME THING. R.H., STOP THINKING OF THE
ASTRAL PLANE AS "UP THERE"; IT IS "DOWN THERE" REACH OUT AND TOUCH IT.
RH: Is my incarnate soul a single Fragment?
IN YOUR PHYSICAL BODY THERE IS A SINGLE DOMINANT THREAD, BUT YOU MUST
UNDERSTAND THAT YOU ARE NO LONGER SEPARATED FROM YOUR INTEGRATED FRAGMENTS.
THEY ARE VERY MUCH A PART OF YOU. WHEN THE ENTITY FIRST FRAGMENTS AND ALL OF
IT IS ON THE PHYSICAL PLANE, THERE IS WIDE SEPARATION, THEN THERE IS
PROGRESSIVE INTEGRATION. ALL OF THE FRAGMENTS STILL INCARNATE HAVE THE PULL
EXERTED ON THEM BY THEIR ASTRAL FRAGMENTS. THERE IS NO "REAL" SEPARATION,
MERELY A PHYSICAL BARRIER THAT IS EASILY SCALED.
RH: 150 Fragments are on the astral plane then. (The body is a container
working on its karma.) ET, PJ, and I are sharing the 150 astral Fragments.
THAT IS VALID.
Who would be the dominant Fragment if ET, PJ and I are united?
IT WILL BE A FRAGMENT THAT HAS NOT EXPERIENCED ALL OF LIFE.
That spoils my concept. Then the Schlitz beer ads are correct: one time
around. This destroys my concept of the continuation of that consciousness
of which I am aware. After that I would be united with my Entity, and would
no longer be conscious of self as I now know it.
THAT IS VALID. THE WHOLE IS THE SUM OF THE PARTS. WE HAVE NO DOMINANT
FRAGMENTS. WE ARE AN ENTITY-INTEGRATED WHOLE. THERE IS NO SENSE OF LOSS,
WISTFULLNESS, POIGNANCY, OR WHAT HAVE YOU. THE LOSS IS PERCEIVED ONLY ON THE
PHYSICAL PLANE. NOW WE ARE WHOLE. BEFORE, WE WERE SPLIT APART AND THEREFORE
HAD LESS THAN TOTAL. THERE IS STILL EVOLUTION IN STORE FOR US. ALTHOUGH WE
APPREHEND THIS, WE STILL DO NOT SEE IT AS IT WILL BE WHEN THIS OCCURS. RIGHT
NOW YOU FEEL THAT THE LOSS OF THE INDIVIDUALITY WILL BE FELT AS PAIN. THIS
IS NOT TRUE. THE INDIVIDUALITY IS PAINFUL, NOT THE INTEGRATION.
RH: Could it be analogous to a cell of my fingernail not knowing what the
rest of the body is doing? All of the cells don't know what is going on?
IDENTIFICATION AND LABELING IS PART OF FALSE PERSONALITY. YOU HAVE HEARD
THIS FROM THE MAN, R.B.
[Without a personality,] there wouldn't be a "you" to perceive it. There
would be no point in having a ranch, no point in setting up a treatment
center in order to get closer to essence.
If you don't do those things, you may keep coming back until you do. The
closer you get to essence, the farther you are from the wolf [false
personality].
On the physical plane there is "life" and a picture of it, and it all hinges
on false personality. Is there a word to describe what happens on higher
planes, since "life" is not a description?
YOU DO NOT "LIVE" ORGANICALLY [on the higher plane], IF THAT IS WHAT YOU
MEAN. ORGANICITY BELONGS ON THE PHYSICAL PLANE. WE DO "LIVE", THOUGH WE
JUST DON'T HAVE A PHYSICAL BODY; WE HAVE A CAUSAL BODY. YOU ARE TALKING TO
ALL OF US ALL OF THE TIME.
RH: I can't get a physical picture. It is like when "I" am talking to
Michael, the cells of my fingernails are not being a part of it. Is that a
valid analogy?
NOT COMPLETELY. THE ANALOGY WOULD BE THAT WE ARE THE FINGERNAIL CELLS FOR
THE CAUSAL PLANE.
RC: I asked them how they could give their undivided attention to what I'm
saying and being aware of what they are saying. They said, yes, they could
do that and at the same time talk to a hundred others.
It sounds like individuality is a crutch and not a good thing.
That is one reason communal living is good. You become a working unit, and
communicate on a mind-to-mind level.
