You see, to have or to have not. Our whole lives are concentrated on “having” so we still believe we have a soul, when we are soul. Now if you are soul, then to live the life of soul is a different process. It’s a different sense of focus. It’s a different sense of evaluation. It’s no longer emotion with passion. It’s a reverse emotion which becomes devotion now by contemplation. You see you can be in the world and not be of the world, but that doesn’t say you’re a cold potato. You can stay in this world of pure love and at the same time you can be in love or be loved or wanting to be loved and the three last statements are all ego. The first one has no ego. If you are love, what are you? Consciousness. You’re not imposing, not requiring, in fact you’re the first to serve. You’re giving and that’s what the Masters would say, free to give, free to receive, better to give better than to receive. Consciousness gives, consciousness don’t ask. Consciousness responds. It’s never demanding because there is no demand for it. It is consciousness, you see.

You see, Master once said when a man said to him, “Master you are fortunate to have so many beautiful souls around you in a beautiful ashram, praying and meditating all day.” He says, “Impossible, this is only a hospital for sick soul and this universe is that, a place for sick souls, once it’s healed and can stand on its own, it doesn’t need a universe, it goes on.” Freedom. You see you’re not going to be freed from anything, you’re going to be free for responsibility. Who thinks he is free from responsibility is only fooling himself. He’s a weak person already because he’s hiding like the ostrich with his head in the ground, running from the lion who’ll eventually beat him. You see, a lion is chasing the ostrich and he outruns the lion and then buries his head in the ground as he’s going to hide and out comes the lion and devours him. He didn’t free from the lion. Our consciousness is pushing us this way. There’s a big difference in understanding ourselves.

When the two optical nerves of the eyes are focused, like lenses of a camera through the aid of light, the photosynthesis and the negative function of the eyes act as a plate, photographs the light, and leaves what is called an optical image relationship in the brain. Thus making you conscious of your fellow man around you as what he is. Then you see the ancient says, people say, or these scientists say, you live in Maya, you live in an optical illusion world. He (Jesus) being born among the Hebrew people could not use the word Maya because it would not mean anything to Hebrew people. Therefore he used what was most common in Hebrew word Sat-an, the natural adversary of nature, the polarity. Greeks for love of personality, took the word and made it into an individual, Satan, some individual with a pitchfork, long tail, sitting in a bank of fire or something, trying to stoke the fires of hell with human souls. You see? That’s the concept that has ended up in mythology. The cosmic science is coming out of it gradually. The Eastern people have used the word Maya, but today Maya, Sat-an, only means one thing as far as objective consciousness is concerned, or cosmic consciousness is concerned, it means relativity, the polarities of light in which we live. Without it, nothing is here.

Now the second phase of this cosmic consciousness would be when you sit down in your home, wherever you are, and step out and recognize the duality, recognize the twofold part of your being. When you do that, sooner or later you are able to have this whole awareness and see it. Now, having it isn’t having it for all mankind because if you know that “thou shalt have none other gods, but me” and “love your neighbor as yourself,” then you see that your own self is locked up in the other individual and it’s struggling in a body form. Though you know you’re everything that doesn’t say that form in which you are temporarily imprisoned by the thought block is functioning correctly, you see? Now, you have to look for that and realize “there for the love of God go I” but what am I doing, am I just sitting back? I know that person will work out his karma, good, but am I giving the necessary vibrations that would ease the tensions in his unfoldment? So when we say we are healing now, I’m not healing one individual no more, I’m healing the entire creation back that each one unfold out, because I’m healing myself. “Physician, heal yourself.” You’re healing back yourself, from your higher self. You’re healing this force. So you have to vibrate now and think of the elemental kingdom, seeing them in a state of light and peace, you have to see the entire mineral kingdom, which we took all our substances from and vibrate it back, we have to send the same thing to the vegetable kingdom, we have to send the same thing to the animal kingdom, the human kingdom, and we have to send it to the spiritual kingdom, and the cosmic principle in ourselves.

Now, the next freedom is freedom from hate, which is love, cosmic love. Everything has to be cosmic love. Now as you graduate from that next freedom, you go into what is called enlightenment, freedom from the ignorance, the ignoring of the laws of life. You begin now to function with the laws of life and as you free yourself from that ignorance, then comes on your illumination, your cosmic nature concerning man on this planet. Now, the first experience in the cosmic nature would be social cosmic consciousness via tourism. Your interest in man as a whole, not just you yourself. Most of us run away and hide in a cave looking for our own cosmic consciousness for ourselves. This is also self interest, this is also ego, it’s not cosmic realization. You see the masters are pointing out we don’t want a cosmic consciousness for the world, we want it for ourselves. We want to know we have something in ourselves that is unique. It’s not true. This is a natural law that will come regardless of ourselves when we are ready for it too. That is by to say the grace of god, it descends on us. This is a principle that where the Christian saints have transcended. They have willingly allowed the grace of god to pour down. You see? They did not go out to look for the thing for themselves personally. They wanted the thing to come down from on high. (to be continued)

Man must have his development evenly balanced out. So while he is evolving physically, he has to evolve mentally and he has to evolve spiritually, but it is easier to evolve spiritually than it is to evolve materially or in the physical plane because it’s easy to withdraw from the responsibilities of the world, hide in a cave, look at yourself and say “well, the world has treated me in a rough way. I don’t need the world. I can sit down and be” and I sit down and be. Yes, it’s alright, it’s good, you come home to yourself, but you’ll never find none of the Masters staying there because they get up and go out. Every one of these men, after they came back to their inner self, got up and worked. So we say, greater than the man of action, greater than the man of devotion, greater than the man of meditation or wisdom, is the man of conscious activity, the realized man. He is consciously active all the time, he’s not running, he’s here, he’s working, he sees and anticipate in consciousness. He is living, he’s not afraid you see? He knows where he’s going. Now, he infuses you with strength all the time and the first thing in any evolution, or freedom in this evolution, is courage and strength. If you don’t got it, you ain’t got it, and then you are suffering with the weaknesses. If you’ve got the weaknesses and you don’t have the courage to face up now where you are and work, you can’t go to the next freedom. (to be continued)

Now, when the individual goes through this principle of raising it or ascending in the spinal column and correcting this mechanism now, the first manifestation is extension of life in the body. We begin to extend the life principle in the body. The decay principle is arrested, you see? Now Kriya, as a science, by its very initial start starts to prevent or lessen the decay of the tissues by added oxygen taken into the mechanism. The atoms of those oxygen are transmuted into pure energy. The pure energy now revitalizes the mechanism and causes it to ascend.

Conscious death would be ability then to shutdown the five senses, slowly eliminate the respiratory function, not by forcing it, by a natural shutdown and the same time, lungs and heart would shutdown, and the life current would slip now via the medulla and step out. For the first time you would feel like you’re two individuals. There a lighter you, transparent, and a heavier you, sitting and reclining. Now this is possible. Now, it is also based on the very fundamental technique of meditation. The mental energy being directed independent of the senses. You see? It is always independent and stepping out. For the first time you step out and you get what is called a split in two parts, you see one part as pure light and you feel it and the other part is here with you. Now there is a linkage, just like McDivitt stepped out of the satellite and was hooked in by an umbilical cord to feed him from the satellite. When we step out in a conscious way, in a conscious way, we have the same connection. Now this is not a permanent way.

Man is a living Atomic Principle. He is a living, miniature Universe. Now, his aim is Cosmic Consciousness, but that’s just the beginning of his existence. We are moving toward cosmic consciousness not at the end, as the completion of our evolution, but not the completion of our existence. You see? Theoretically we evolve up to Cosmic Consciousness, which is our divinity of our-cells (ourselves) from there on we must move on to Cosmic Existence with our neighbors in the cosmos. See “in my Father’s House there are many mansions. I go to prepare a place for you. If it were not, I’d tell you.” So he was speaking already of cosmic Existence in relation to Cosmic Evolution.

Was amazed to see this on our drive home.
