_____ expressed difficulty “finding himself” in all areas of his SRG, and asked for a review. Further discussion put this problem with Center, Mode, and soul Age.

THIS MAN IS IN GROWTH [Goal] AND HAS UNDERGONE ALREADY TREMENDOUS EXPLORATION AND ACCELERATION IN THIS LIFE. THIS IS THE PRIMARY REASON HE IS UNCOMFORTABLE WITH THE LEVEL [soul Age]. IT FEELS TRANSITIONAL TO HIM, AND AT THE END OF THIS LIFE IT VERY WELL MAY BE. THERE MAY HAVE BEEN AN ERROR IN TRANSMISSION CONCERNING THE CENTERING. IF SO, THEN THIS MAN IS IN THE EMOTIONAL PART OF INTELLECTUAL CENTER. WE FIND NO FAULT WITH THE TOTAL PICTURE OTHERWISE.

Is the aura blue?

WE AGREE WITH THAT, WITH UNDERTONES OF GREEN.

What is my Life Task and/or Sequences with this group?

THIS LARGE GROUP, WHICH INCIDENTALLY BECAME A FAMILY AGAIN IN THIS LIFE, IS LARGELY INTERWOVEN WITH SEQUENCES. THESE ALL INVOLVE THE SPIRIT OF COOPERATION, TO ENABLE THE GROWTH SO NECESSARY IN SEVERAL OF THOSE CONCERNED. YOU ARE NOT AN EXCEPTION TO THIS, AS YOU NEED THE SPACE, AND ARE WITH THOSE IN SEQUENCE WHO WILL FREELY GIVE IT. YOU TOO MUST GIVE OF THIS EVEN THOUGH IT MAY BE EXTREMELY DIFFICULT, AND HAS ALREADY INVOLVED GROWTH IN WHAT MECHANICAL MAN CALLS “SACRIFICES”. ACTUALLY, NOTHING HAS BEEN SACRIFICED — IT WAS CHOSEN AS A GROWTH PROCESS. YOU ARE A GOOD STUDENT. THIS IS PART OF YOUR TASK. THERE COULD BE MUCH MORE SAID, OF COURSE, BUT THE MAN GAINS VALUABLE INSIGHTS ON HIS OWN.

Am I a part of the same Entity as _____?

NOT A FRAGMENT OF THAT ENTITY NO, BUT YOU TOO WILL MEET WITH SEVERAL FRAGMENTS IN THIS LIFE.

What significance is there in being of the same Entity?

NO SPECIAL SIGNIFICANCE, BUT FRAGMENTS OF THE SAME ENTITY ARE QUITE OFTEN ATTRACTED TO EACH OTHER BY FAMILIARITY IF THEIR PATHS CROSS.

It was predicted I would be actively affiliated with a group. There has been many changes in this last two months. I have become very involved. Is this good, or should I be concentrating on more spiritual matters?

AT THE PRESENT LEVEL OF INVOLVEMENT, YES [it is good]. AT ANY RATE, IT IS NOT DETRIMENTAL, BUT YOU MUST ALSO KEEP IN MIND THAT YOU CANNOT HELP ANYONE ELSE GROW. IN THIS INSTANCE YOU BECOME AT THE MOST A GO-BETWEEN, AND THIS CAN SOMETIMES BE A USEFUL FUNCTION IN A CASE WHERE THE OTHER SOUL WILL NOT GROW FROM THE ADVERSITY. THE REASON THAT YOU ARE TIRED IS THAT YOU ARE USING EMOTIONAL ENERGY TO SOLVE A PRIMARILY INTELLECTUAL PROBLEM. THIS IS ALWAYS TIRING, AND CAN ALSO RESULT IN DEPRESSION AFTER THE CRISIS. YOU HAVE HAD THIS HAPPEN TO YOU BEFORE, AND SHOULD RECOGNIZE THE SYMPTOMS WHEN THEY BEGIN. OTHERWISE YOU COULD TURN THIS INTO A TEACHING EXPERIENCE, YES, OF COURSE YOU COULD.

Are my Overleaves changed?

NO, YOU ARE MERELY USING A GREAT DEAL OF EMOTIONAL ENERGY WHICH FEELS STRANGE TO YOU.

______ asked Michael to comment about the upcoming EST trip for her.

YES, WE WOULD CONSIDER THIS A WISE MOVE, AND A GROWTH EXPERIENCE.

On Saturday we visited a friend who will soon leave her home and go to a rest home. Sunday I felt depressed and ill. Do we have any connection with this lady?

SOME ARE ABLE TO COMMUNICATE THEIR DESPAIR MORE LUCIDLY THAN OTHERS. THIS LADY IS AN EXAMPLE. SHE WAS ABLE TO LET YOU, L., KNOW THE DEPTH OF HER DESPONDENCY.

Which Center lets this sensitivity in?

PLUS MUCH EARLY TRAINING IN SYMPATHY.

Is the TFR work _____ and I are in worthwhile?

FIRST OF ALL, WORK, IN ORDER TO BE “RIGHT” FOR YOU, MUST BE REWARDING IN THE SENSE THAT IT PRODUCES A DEEP DOWN SENSE OF SATISFACTION. BY THIS WE DO NOT MEAN EGO GRATIFICATION, BUT ESSENCE SATISFACTION. SECONDLY, YOU ONLY HELP OTHERS INDIRECTLY BY FIRST HELPING YOURSELF TO A LARGE SLICE OF JOY. IF THE PROJECT THAT [sic] TEACHING, THE JOB, OR WHATEVER, GIVES YOU THIS, THEN YES, IT IS RIGHT. BRING TO THIS YOUR OWN POSITIVE OVERLEAVES AND YOUR SKILLS AND IT MAY BRING YOU FULL MEASURE. LAG BEHIND THIS AND IT WILL BRING YOU ONLY THE FRUSTRATION YOU NOW FEEL. THE SECRET IS THAT YOU CAN TRANSFORM THAT GROUP INTO WHATEVER YOU WISH, BUT IT MUST SPRING FRESH FROM YOUR OWN ESSENCE NEEDS, AND NOT FROM WHAT YOU THINK THAT THE GROUP NEEDS.

I feel open and vulnerable.

ONE OF THE MOST POSITIVE CHANGES IN YOU HAS BEEN YOUR WILLINGNESS TO THROW DOWN BARRIERS. YES, KNOWING YOUR ROLE AND YOUR PHILOSOPHICAL ATTITUDE HAS HELPED YOU IN THIS.

What do migraines mean?

THESE ACHES HAVE THEIR ORIGIN IN TENSION, PART OF WHICH IS JOB-RELATED, PART OF WHICH IS ROOTED IN A BASIC INABILITY TO DISAPPOINT THOSE WHOM HE SENSES ARE COUNTING ON HIM. THIS MAN STILL NEEDS TO FEEL COMPLETELY FREE TO REFUSE, IN CLEAR CONSCIENCE, THAT WHICH HE INTUITS AS A WRONG MOVE.

Regarding my friends ______ and _____: He threatens suicide, and she no longer suffers. Are their karmic ribbons over now?

THIS IS VALID, BUT ONLY ____ CAN FEEL THIS, AND THE MAN CANNOT. HE WILL CONTINUE TO EXTRACT, AT LEAST HE WILL CONTINUE TO TRY. IT IS NOW A PATTERN WITH HIM THAT HAS BECOME IMPRINTED ON THIS WEAK EGO. AS SO OFTEN HAPPENS, THIS MAN _____ WAS FIRST BORN TO THE LADY B. WHEN SHE WAS MIDWAY INTO THE MATURE CYCLE. THIS IS NOT THE SPOT FOR INFANT SOULS.

______ and I are in and out of relationship. Our goals clash. I need verification of my Goal [Dominance], as it does not feel right.

IT DOES NOT FEEL RIGHT TO YOU, _____, BECAUSE YOU ARE SEEKING GROWTH NOW. YOU SEE IT [Dominance] AS NEGATIVE. AT THIS TRANSITIONAL POINT WE WOULD AGREE, YOU CAN GIVE IT UP. YOU STILL DO SEEK TO DOMINATE THE PHYSICAL ENVIRONMENT AROUND YOU.

I have no personal goal at this time. What could be a meaningful one for me now?

SINCE IT IS THE PRIMARY POINT OF FRICTION FOR YOU NOW, ______, WHY NOT ATTEMPT THE TRANSITION INTO GROWTH. WE WOULD SUGGEST FOR YOU [the] CONCENTRATION [exercise].

Would it be good for the men of this group to meet separately (as the women have done)?

THE PITFALLS WOULD, OF COURSE, BE FALLING INTO A MASCULINE, MECHANICAL TYPE DIALOG PERTAINING TO LIFE INTERESTS, AND NOT TO THE TEACHING. WITH EFFORT, THE MOVE COULD BE FRUITFUL, ESPECIALLY IN THE DIRECTION OF AGAPE. MANY OF YOU NEED TO CAST OUT YOUR STEREOTYPES, AND LEARN TO LOVE IN OTHER AGENDAS BESIDES THE SEXUAL ONE.

Comment on ladies meeting?

THERE WAS MUCH SCATTERING AS YOU KNOW, BUT THIS CAN BE CONTROLLED WITH PRACTICE. THE NEED TO EXCHANGE COMMUNICATION AT TIMES OVERRIDES THE QUALITY OF THAT COMMUNICATION. THIS CAN BE SO EFFECTIVE IF CARRIED OUT IN THE DIRECTION OF THE WORK. IT WOULD BE AN IDEAL TIME TO EXCHANGE THOSE INSIGHTS THAT ARE INDIVIDUALLY UNIQUE IN ORIGIN, AND YET UNIVERSALLY RELEVANT.

I am going through the book [of session transcriptions] and cataloging SRG’s of famous or well-known people. I want examples of Old Slaves and Warriors.

GEORGE PATTON (OLD WARRIOR): THIS MAN GEORGE WAS A FIFTH LEVEL OLD WARRIOR IN DOMINANCE, IN THE PASSION MODE, A REALIST WITH A CHIEF FEATURE OF STUBBORNNESS. HE WAS MOSTLY MARTIAL, SOME SATURNINE, IN THE EMOTIONAL PART OF MOVING CENTER. INCIDENTALLY, HE HAD A VERY CLEAR MEMORY OF SOME PAST LIVES.

How about an example of an Old female Warrior?

THE LADY BARBARA STANWICK IS A FIRST LEVEL OLD WARRIOR IN DOMINANCE, ALSO IN THE PASSION MODE. SHE IS AN IDEALIST IN THE MOVING PART OF EMOTIONAL CENTER, MOSTLY LUNAR; VANITY, WITH A CAPITAL ”V”.

How about an Old Slave?

PRINCE CHARLES OF BRITAIN IS ALSO A SECOND LEVEL OLD WARRIOR IN THE OBSERVATION MODE, A SPIRITUALIST. HE IS MOSTLY LUNAR, SOME VENUSIAN.

Does he have a Chief Feature?

YES, BUT NOT FIRMLY ENTRENCHED. HE IS SOMEWHAT A MARTYR.

So what about Old Slaves?

THE FORMER KING OF SWEDEN, GUSTAVE ADOLPH, WAS A SIXTH LEVEL OLD SLAVE IN GROWTH, IN THE POWER MODE, WITH A CHIEF FEATURE OF STUBBORNNESS; MOSTLY SATURNINE, SOME LUNAR; IDEALIST.

What is the SRG of King Christian of Denmark?

THIS WAS A THIRD LEVEL MATURE KING IN ACCEPTANCE, IN THE PASSION MODE, THE INTELLECTUAL PART OF EMOTIONAL CENTER, A SPIRITUALIST.

What is the SRG of Gregory Rasputin?

IT IS INTERESTING THAT THIS MAN WAS TWICE IN THE PAST AN ARCH DRUID, AND BROUGHT TO THIS LIFE A PAST STEEPED IN THE OCCULT. HE WAS A MID CYCLE MATURE PRIEST IN REJECTION, A CYNIC IN THE POWER MODE, IN THE MOVING PART OF EMOTIONAL CENTER, MOSTLY LUNAR, SOME SATURNINE; STUBBORNNESS.

Did I know him and have any relationship with him? (Druid Priestess)

ONCE, YES, YOU DID, IN THE FOURTH CENTURY BEFORE THE COMMON ERA.

How about another Old Slave?

THE NOVELIST PEARL BUCK WAS A THIRD LEVEL OLD SLAVE IN THE PASSION MODE, IN SUBMISSION, A SPIRITUALIST WITH A CHIEF FEATURE OF STUBBORNNESS, MOSTLY VENUSIAN, SOME MERCURIAL, IN THE EMOTIONAL PART OF INTELLECTUAL CENTER.

_____ asked for the SRG of ____, a guy with her sister: Is he a Fifth Level Old Sage or Warrior?

THIS MAN LOOKS LIKE A WARRIOR TO YOU BECAUSE HE IS MOSTLY MARTIAL, WITH SOME VENUSIAN; ALSO BECAUSE HE IS IN THE EMOTIONAL PART OF MOVING CENTER AND SUGGESTS STRENGTH. HE IS A FIFTH LEVEL OLD SAGE, A PRAGMATIST IN GROWTH, WITH A CHIEF FEATURE OF SELF-DEPRECATION — NOT STRONG, BUT ENOUGH TO QUIET HIM SOME. ALSO HIS PRAGMATIC APPROACH ROBS HIM OF SOME VERBAL STRENGTH. ALL IN ALL, THIS MAN IS IN A GOOD SPACE FOR GROWTH.

Are he and _______ of the same Entity or twin souls? Has she moved from Stagnation to Growth?

NO ON THE FORMER AND THE LATTER, BUT SHE IS NOW INVOLVED IN SOME GOOD WORK TOWARD THIS. THEY DO HAVE A SEQUENTIAL AGREEMENT AND THE ATTRACTION IS QUITE STRONG.

Are there lines and areas of questioning that we are presently capable of, but very seldom voice, which would make your teachings more available to us? If so, what can you tell us about them?

WE WOULD SAY YES, THERE ARE DEFINITELY MANY LINES TO BE EXPLORED, MOSTLY PERTAINING TO SYNTHESIS OF THE INFORMATION ON INTERRELATIONS. THE REASON FOR FAILURE IS IN THE INTERRELATIONSHIPS OF THOSE ON THE PHYSICAL PLANE, PARTICULARLY IN THE AREA OF SPIRITUAL GROWTH. IN PARTICULAR, A QUESTION WAS RECENTLY ASKED BUT NOT PURSUED AS TO THE REASON FOR THESE FAILURES. ALSO, SO FAR, NO ONE HAS VOICED A CONCERN OVER THE RELATIONSHIPS BETWEEN MAN AND THE UNIVERSE AND THE HARMONY THEREIN. THE LEVEL OF CURIOSITY CONCERNING THE YIN/YANG COMBINATIONS IS RELATIVELY LOW, CONNOTING A LACK OF UNDERSTANDING. ALSO, THERE HAS BEEN NO CURIOSITY CONCERNING THOSE WHO COME TO THE SYNTHESIS FROM SEEMINGLY DIVERSE BACKGROUNDS, AND YET BRING MUCH UNDERSTANDING TO THE TEACHING. ALSO, A MORE WORKABLE VOCABULARY WOULD BE IN ORDER. THE INTERPRETATIONS, AT TIMES, SUFFER FROM BROKEN SEMANTICS, AND THIS IS AN AREA OF WORK. THE ORIGINS OF MAN ON THIS WORLD, AND ITS EVENTUAL EVOLUTION, ALONG WITH ITS PLACE IN THE ULTIMATE EVOLUTION OF THE PHYSICAL UNIVERSE, IS ALSO A PART OF THIS TEACHING, AIMED AT PROVIDING YOU WITH A MORE CONCISE UNDERSTANDING OF YOUR OWN POSITION IN THE TOTAL SCHEMA.

What do you mean by “workable vocabulary”?

PERHAPS A GLOSSARY IS IN ORDER. TONIGHT THE WORD “VULNERABILITY” COULD HAVE BEEN DEFINED TO THE SATISFACTION, AND AGREEMENT REACHED TO SUBSTITUTE ANOTHER WORD FOR THE SECONDARY MEANING. ALSO, THE GROUP HAS REACHED A POINT NOW IN GROWTH WHERE MEMBERS CAN AFFORD TO BE CAREFUL WITH IMPORTANT WORDS SUCH AS “LOVE” AND ”SPIRITUALITY”.

What do you mean by ”afford”?

YOU CAN APPREHEND THE TRUE MEANING AND SUBSTITUTE ANOTHER MORE APPROPRIATE WORD WHEN YOU ARE DESCRIBING ANOTHER EMOTION, SUCH AS A FEELING ABOUT ICE CREAM. THIS IS AN EXERCISE IN SELF-REMEMBERING, AND CAN BE VERIFIED AS VALID.

Often people say, “I love ice cream”.

AT THIS POINT IN TIME IT IS USELESS TO BRING UP ANY DISCUSSION OF AN ULTIMATE PURPOSE IN EXISTENCE. THIS IS NOT A CONCEPT THAT CAN BE DEALT WITH IN THE LANGUAGE OF THE PHYSICAL PLANE. IT MUST BE INTUITED AT A HIGHER LEVEL, AND IT IS UP TO THE STUDENT TO WORK TOWARD THIS INTUITION. IT IS NOT EASY. THE TAO CANNOT BE UNDERSTOOD INTELLECTUALLY, IT CAN ONLY BE INTUITED. AS WE HAVE STATED BEFORE, AND WILL AGAIN, L., GROWTH IS THE GREATEST GOOD AND LOVE IS THE HIGHEST TRUTH. MUSIC IS MECHANICAL MAN’S ONLY METHOD OF EXPRESSING THE HIGHER, AND THIS IS ALSO TRUE ON THE HIGH PLANES AT ANOTHER LEVEL.

At this point E brought up the subject of trust. He asked for the group response as to how we felt about trusting him, etc. Considerable discussion followed.

IF ONE IS TRULY STRIVING TOWARD BALANCE, THERE WILL BE A DESIRE FOR HARMONY IN THE ENVIRONMENT. THEY ARE ONE IN THE SAME. THERE IS ONLY CHAOS IN THE ENVIRONMENTS OF THOSE STRUGGLING WITH CONFLICTS ON THE GLAMOROUS PHYSICAL PLANE. THE STRUGGLE TO MEET THE EXPECTATIONS OF OTHERS THAT IS, SADLY ENOUGH, MOST OFTEN WITHOUT KNOWLEDGE OF THOSE EXPECTATIONS. THERE IS SO MUCH GUESSWORK GOING ON, HOW COULD YOU POSSIBLY TRUST? WE AGREE WITH YOU, E., MORE THAN YOU THINK, THAT ULTIMATELY TRUST HAS TO DO WITH CONSTANCY --PREDICTABILITY, IF YOU WILL. THIS ENDOWS THE PERSONA WITH A CERTAIN AMOUNT OF RELIABILITY WITH WHICH TO OPERATE. IT IS LIKE ARMING THE CANNON. THE FLAGRANT MISUSE OF SOMEONE ELSE’S DEFINITION OF A WORD USUALLY DENOTES A LACK OF UNDERSTANDING, AND A SEMANTIC BARRIER RATHER THAN ANY PARTICULAR BREACH OF TRUST.

_____ talked of a headache he sometimes gets — this came tonight immediately after receiving the information he asked for. What is it? Why?

AS FOR THE BAND OF TENSION, THERE IS AN UNDERLYING DISAPPOINTMENT THAT NEEDS NOT BE. YOU ARE A GOOD STUDENT AND AS CAPABLE AS THOSE OTHERS. AS THE GOAL OF AGAPE OR SPIRITUAL LIBERATION ENTAILS ULTIMATELY BECOMING AN ADEPT, THE CONCEPT OF TELEPATHY SHOULD NOT BE TAKEN LIGHTLY. IT IS WITHIN THE GRASP OF YOU, AND WOULD REQUIRE AN ENORMOUS AMOUNT OF PREDICTABILITY. WHEN YOU MEET WITH AN ADEPT WHO IS STRONGLY TELEPATHIC, AND ALSO TOTALLY VULNERABLE, YOU WILL UNDERSTAND THIS MORE FULLY, BUT IT IS NOT AN UNREALISTIC GOAL FOR THE MAN _____.

Do you refer to “predictability” on my part?

AT FIRST YES, THEN WITH THOSE YOU ALLOW ACCESS TO. IF THE EMOTIONS ARE CHAOTIC, THE WORK CANNOT PROCEED IN THIS DIRECTION. THAT IS WHERE THE BALANCE COMES IN. WHEN THE STUDENT FIRST COMES INTO CONTACT WITH AN UNFAMILIAR CENTER, THERE IS AN INITIAL SURGE, AND THEN UNTIL THE ADJUSTMENT IS MADE, THE INSIGHTS ARE UNRELENTING AND CHAOTIC.

Regarding my new apartment, I have made tremendous growth.

WE WOULD THINK THAT BRIDGING THE CHASM BETWEEN INTELLECT AND EMOTION IS CERTAINLY A LARGE STEP IN THE UPWARD DIRECTION. IT IS STILL, OF COURSE, UNCOMFORTABLE, AND WILL BE FOR SOME TIME.
