 November 9, 1974



This session was the second “board” meeting held during our weekend together. There is no record on the physical plane of the many experiences that occurred during other sessions.

Who was Pontius Pilate?

THIS MAN IS NOT YET IN THIS CADRE. HE WILL LEARN ABOUT THE GROUP AND MAY CHOOSE TO BECOME A MEMBER.

Did Jesus die on the cross as is said in the Bible? Was Judas really a betrayer? Who is Judas in this lifetime?

THIS WAS OF COURSE A COMMON FORM OF EXECUTION FOR A NON-ROMAN CITIZEN. YES, THE BODY DIED THAT WAY. THE TASK WAS FINISHED. IT WAS AS IT SHOULD HAVE BEEN. THE MAN JUDAS DID NO MORE THAN HE WAS ASKED TO DO. STILL, HE WAS CONFUSED AND OVERCOME BY REMORSE, EVEN THOUGH HE UNDERSTOOD THAT THE MAN WAS LONG GONE AT THE TIME THE BODY DIED. THE MAN JUDAS AT THAT TIME WAS A MID CYCLE MATURE PRIEST IN SUBMISSION. THIS GAVE HIM LITTLE OPTION TO REFUSE THE KING [Jesus]. IT WOULD BE GOOD WORK TO DETERMINE THIS. (Who Judas is.)

Is the former Judas a student in this group?

PERIPHERAL TO IT, YES. MANY OF YOU KNOW THIS FRAGMENT.

Is it _____?

THIS WAS A LOGICAL GUESS, BUT IT IS NOT VALID.

How did Judas die?

THE MAN SUICIDED.

_____ asked if she was Cleopatra when she died from snakes.

THERE WERE NO SNAKES WHEN THIS KING DIED. THAT IS A LEGEND THAT ATTACHED (and is) NO FACT. THE LADY TOOK POISON ADMINISTERED TO HER BY A LOYAL FRIEND. NO, _____, YOU WERE CLOSE TO BEING BORN IN ROME AT THAT TIME. YOU WERE IN FACT BORN TWENTY-EIGHT YEARS FOLLOWING HER DEATH.

_____ asked if her experience was before that life. _____ has a fear of snakes.

YOU SEE, _____, YOU AND A FEW OTHERS WERE AROUND FOR SEVERAL MANIFESTATIONS OF THE TRANSCENDENTAL SOUL; ALSO AMONG THEM AMENHOTEP (an Egyptian king).

Was it then that I saw snakes?

IRONICALLY, ______ YOUR EXPERIENCE WITH SNAKES WAS NOT A NEGATIVE ONE, THEN, AS YOU USED THEM IN YOUR RITUALS. BUT IT JUST HAPPENED THAT THERE WERE TWO OF THEM IN THE ROOM WHEN YOU DIED, AND IT WAS ONE OF THE LAST THINGS YOU SAW.

_____ asked about past lives.

REMEMBER, _____, THAT A CERTAIN NUMBER OF YOUR LIVES HAVE BEEN SPENT AS FEMALES. FEMALES HAVE LONG BEEN OPPRESSED IN THIS SOCIETY, AND THERE HAVE NOT BEEN MANY OPTIONS OPEN TO THEM. FOR THESE REASONS WE PREFER TO MENTION ONLY NOTABLE DEPARTURES. FOR EXAMPLE, MOST OF YOU SHOW IN YOUR PASTS CERTAIN REPETITIVE PATTERNS. THESE WERE PERPETRATED IN MORE THAN ONE LIFE. _____, FOR INSTANCE, RESENTED BEING FEMALE AND CHOSE TO LIVE OUTSIDE OF THE SOCIETAL MORES AS A FEMALE MOST OF THE TIME. THE LOCALE CHANGED BUT THE PROFESSION DID NOT. AND MUCH OF THE EXPERIENCE WAS BLUNTED.

______ asked why there have been errors in soul levels and Roles — are they purposeful? He had been told by Michael much earlier that he was an Artisan, and during a session the night before, someone in the group had asked about his Role and was told it was Scholar, which seems to fit him better.

THE ERRORS OCCASIONALLY HAPPEN WITH GROWTH IN MIND, YES. OFTEN THEY ARE ERRORS. THE MAN IS RIGHT IN ONE RESPECT. THE TEST IS NOT TESTING, BUT RATHER A LESSON TO BE LEARNED IN TRUST, AND GETTING IN TOUCH WITH INTUITION. THE SOUL LEVEL DISCREPANCIES ARE NOT REFLECTIVE OF TOO MUCH MORE CHANGE. THE COINCIDENCE OF THE CHANGES JUST HAPPENED TO COME IN ORDER OF THE QUESTIONS.

______ asked for verification of his SRG: Fourth Level Mature Slave in Dominance, Stoic, Intellectual part of Emotional Center, in Observation, with a Chief Feature of Arrogance.

THE BLUNTED STOIC IS DUE TO THE EMOTIONAL CENTER, AND THE GOAL GETTING IN TOUCH WITH THE MOVING CENTER MAY CLEAR THIS MISPERCEPTION. STOICS ARE NOT ALWAYS HEAVY INTO THE NEGATIVE.

Discussion of soul level knowledge and benefit of knowing whether we are First, Second or Fifth Level of any soul age.

THE ONLY BENEFIT WE CAN SEE IN KNOWING THE AGE OF ONE’S SOUL IS TO HELP THE STUDENT UNDERSTAND PERCEPTIONS AT VARIANCE WITH ONE’S OWN; PERHAPS ALSO TO UNDERSTAND REACTIONS AND DRIVES, IT IS VALUABLE. TRADITIONALLY, THE STOIC HAS ALWAYS REPRESENTED THE EYE IN THE HURRICANE. AT LEAST TO US, IF THIS IS NEGATIVE, OUR PERCEPTIONS ARE QUITE AT VARIANCE.

Who is my Essence Twin? Have I met the Twin? Is it someone in the group?

YES YOU HAVE. NO (not in the group), BUT AGAIN, PERIPHERAL TO IT.

SC asked verification: Second Level Old Scholar in Dominance, in the Observation Mode, Moving part of Intellectual Center, Idealist, Mercurial / Saturn, Arrogance as a Chief Feature?

_______ asked if her goal had changed from Acceptance to Growth. She is a mid cycle Mature Warrior in Acceptance, Intellectual part of Moving Center, Idealist, Passion Mode, Stubbornness as Chief Feature, Bodytype Mars / Lunar.

AS WE HAVE TOLD YOU BEFORE, THE GOAL OF ACCEPTANCE IS IN ITSELF A POWERFUL EXALTED GOAL FROM WHICH SPIRITUAL ENLIGHTENMENT CAN SPRING. WITH THIS THERE IS NO NEED FOR A SWITCH IN OVERLEAVES — MERELY EXTINGUISHMENT OF THE NEGATIVE POLE, WHICH IN THIS CASE IS THE DESPERATE NEED TO BE ACCEPTED UNIVERSALLY BY OTHERS. IN EXCHANGE FOR THIS YOU COME INTO THE POSITIVE POLE, WHICH IS OF COURSE, THE UNQUALIFIED ACCEPTANCE OF OTHERS, JUST AS THE NEGATIVE POLE OF THE GROWTH GOAL INVOLVES TREMENDOUS SCATTERING OF ENERGIES AS THE SOUL RUSHES FROM SCHOOL TO SCHOOL SEARCHING FEVERISHLY FOR THAT ILLUSIVE ”WAY”.

_____ asked what some of his past professions had been, and what he did with them.

AS YOU MAY HAVE SUSPECTED, YOUR PATHS HAVE CROSSED WITH OTHER STUDENTS HERE PRESENT. YOU HAVE BEEN A JESUIT — A BENEDICTINE AND FRANCISCAN. YOU HAVE BEEN A RABBI, A SADDUCEAN; IN FACT, YOU HAVE BEEN HERALD AT ARMS. YOU HAVE BEEN A DUKE, A BARON — THE LATTER IN GERMANY AT THE TIME OF LUTHER. YOU HAVE FIVE TIMES CARRIED THE BANNER OF RELIGION INTO WAR.

______ wished verification of SRG: Third Level Old Artisan, Passion Mode, Stubbornness as Chief Feature, Moving part of Emotional Center, Saturn / Mars, an Idealist?

WE AGREE WITH THAT. THE LADY IS FIRMLY TRAPPED IN THE EMOTIONAL PART OF THE INTELLECTUAL CENTER. WE BELIEVE THAT THIS IS AS IT WAS ORIGINALLY STATED. PERHAPS THE LADY EQUATES EDUCATION WITH INTELLECTUAL CENTER. FOR SHAME. THE LADY HAS STRONG FEATURES OF STUBBORNNESS AND IMPATIENCE. RIGHT NOW THE IMPATIENCE SEEMS TO BE WINNING. THIS IS EASY TO TRADE — TO EXTINGUISH NOW IS ANOTHER QUESTION.

____ asked about the Emotional Center development he feels he has been experiencing. Has he changed from Observation Mode to Passion Mode?

WE WOULD AGREE WITH THE MAN _____ THAT HE HAS TOUCHED GENUINE EMOTIONAL CENTER AND NOW HAS ACCESS TO THIS. IT COULD NOW BE AT WILL, BUT THIS MUST BE A CONSCIOUS ACT ON YOUR PART. THIS IS WHAT YOU ARE INTERPRETING AS THE PASSION MODE, SINCE IT SEEMS SO STRONG TO YOU.

_____ and _____ asked if there were any Scholars in their Entity. They were told earlier that _____ was part of his Entity, and as _____ was earlier told Artisan. That fit, but with _____ Role as Scholar it was not clear — no Scholars in this Entity.

THIS WAS AN ERROR, YES. THE MAN ______ IS A PART OF THE ENTITY THAT CONTAINS THE LADY ______.

How do we recognize a Fragment of our Entity?

THE RECOGNITION OF A FRAGMENT OF ONE’S ENTITY IS USUALLY A CASUAL ONE. SOMETIMES THE ONE WHO RECOGNIZES IS STARTLED AT FIRST, BUT THIS NORMALLY IS NOT A RELATIONSHIP FRAUGHT WITH MUCH TENSION. IN FACT, IT IS USUALLY MARKED WITH EASE, AS THESE ARE OLD FRIENDS, AND YOU WOULD NOT EXPECT FIREWORKS. WITH TWINS THERE IS NORMALLY A DESIRE FOR CLOSENESS OF AN IMMEDIATE NATURE, AND BARRING SOCIAL CONSTRAINTS, THIS PROCEEDS RAPIDLY, AND IS USUALLY FIXED FROM THAT POINT ON. THIS BOND IS BY FAR THE STRONGEST ON THE PHYSICAL PLANE, AND NOT MUCH CAN COME BETWEEN TWINS. KARMA OF AN ADVERSE NATURE CAN PULL TWINS APART, AND SOMETIMES THE GOAL OF REJECTION WILL REPEL A TWIN EVEN THOUGH IT DOES NOT WISH TO BE REPELLED.

What about Sequences?

YOU SEE, THERE IS A SENSE OF UNFINISHED BUSINESS HANGING OVER SEQUENTIAL PARTNERS, AND THEY FEEL THIS TENSION, WHICH IS ONLY RELIEVED BY COMPLETION OF THE SEQUENCE. THIS DOES NOT HAVE TO BE NEGATIVE. THERE ARE POSITIVE SEQUENCES, BUT STILL THE TENSION FOR COMPLETION OF THE TASK IS FELT. SOULS OFTEN SEEK EACH OTHER OUT MORE OFTEN THAN CASUAL FRIENDS WOULD, FOR THE OBVIOUS PURPOSE OF WORKING ON THE SEQUENCE.

Do twin souls have Sequences?

OH, YES, AND KARMIC RIBBONS TOO.

T. had been in hypnosis and the teacher [Michael] had seemed to talk through him. We asked about this.

THIS IS AN EASY BODY TO COME INTO, NOT MUCH STRUGGLE AT ALL; MUCH DESIRE. IT COULD BE FACILITATED MUCH BY FATIGUE. THE MAN IS NOT TIRED. ONE WAY YOU WILL BE ABLE TO MEASURE THE TRUST LEVEL IN THIS GROUP WILL OCCUR WHEN THE DIEHARDS BEGIN TO DROP THEIR GUARD. WITH THE MAN T. THERE IS NOT MUCH GUARDING, AND HE FINDS IT EASIER TO LET GO BECAUSE OF THIS.

_____ asked about a woman he had met and felt a strong attraction to: early Old Artisan in Stagnation?

THE OVERLEAVES WERE PLEASANTLY COMPLIMENTARY AND THERE WAS PHYSICAL ATTRACTION, BUT YOU ARE NOT STRANGERS. YOU HAVE MET THE LADY BEFORE. YOU ARE CORRECT, THOUGH, IN THAT THIS IS NOT AN ESSENCE TWIN, NOR ARE THERE RIBBONS. NO, THIS LADY IS A SIXTH LEVEL MATURE SCHOLAR.
