1: Our society can only make changes by
means of war. We can also make changes by making friends
or accept what is, or, again, ignore it as we do with repression.
Acceptance is best and then "higher mind" will deal with
2: To change means both moving away and
towards, away from the conventional and known, towards an
unknown, although antiquity had better knowledge of this.
To move towards implies we do it how it works "over there".
3: Our psyche is vastly underrated in its
potentials and abilities. As a rough map this comes as Body,
Mind and Spirit. Spirit can be translated as imagination
and intuition. The body occupies the material realm.
The mind is not IN the body, but the body
is in the mind. Mind can be divided into (a) material and
sensory, limited as space and time (b) astral or spiritual
or psychic, which has form and is flexible for space and
time, with (c) angelic or divine which lacks form as space
and time but can adopt any form. Each of these levels has
untold sub-levels. Usually we name them as higher and lower
but they are simply more subtle levels. Pure mind may be
called god. Those with access to the astral are called psychics
and for the angelic mystics.
4: To change, improve or progress means
to remove imprints, boogies, hang-ups, etc., which block
our access to higher realms. Lisa's "Release"
works fine. Our brain can tune in to subtler levels and
access expands our potentials we bring along when born.
It is thus not "how" does one get rid of this
or that but as we expand they simply fall away. We are already
able to do all this but are blocked.
Most of our efforts fail because we try
and judge results in terms of the known. Like any whole
or complete system this steers us back into the known. Next
we may imagine, in terms of modern psychology, that we are
going crazy, need to get rid of our hang-ups and so on.
The rules and ways of these three worlds differ and so,
in order to gain access to the astral and angelic, we need
to abide by its rules, not ours. So to speak, if god is
perfect, then we need to perfect our self by its terms and
gain mastery and awareness of the higher worlds. This comes
not by our external but internal senses, feelings, chakra
actions and so on. Heaven lies within means access to it
lies within, in the subjective. The body is the Temple of
God we need to clear and clean, doing our housekeeping.
Simplest is to make an earnest dedication, declaration or
prayer to our unconscious to help us do all this. The unconscious
is the real and whole mind, divided by our ignorance. Such
a prayer can be done in words or our internal language:
We can also meditate, find a good psychic
like Lisa and Michael who may be called washerwomen as one
Indian saint has it, and several other ways. Our problem
is that the lower cannot recognise the higher, it works
the other way around. Many people therefore turn cynical
from sheer failures.
Tradition has it that we spend many lifetimes
to gain clarity. Psychics come in many, many kinds and not
all devote themselves to this work of enlightenment, which
happens to be literally true as we must let the divine light
of insight enter. In essence we must first accept ourselves
as a whole, warts and all. Why? Because our abilities and
potentials can be used in a negative and positive way and
unless we get access without this division we can hardly
know or choose. It is not that we should not do bad but
won't do this, knowing full well we can. After that it becomes
self teaching, once we know how to listen. At first this
comes as different experiences, some of
Most of our efforts fail
because we try and judge results in terms of the known...
them weird, in terms of the material world.
As we gain experience we learn how it works. Jesus saying
that we must first become as little children applies here
as children enjoy learning and play and exploration. This
has nothing much to do with belief so much as direct experience
by which we need no proof as the evidence speaks for itself.
The remarkable thing is that if the person
is in earnest even a bad or poor method will work and if
the person does not want or rejects what is done or happens
then even the best of methods won't work, therefore intent
and attitude is the more important.
In summary: to get there we need to learn
its ways and not try to do it our way or by conventional
means. To get a map of a territory you explore and make
one up, you don't use the wrong map. If it fails you have
a wrong map or theory. Basically all aspects of our environment
interact, all together and at once. Our so-called 'ego'
amounts to a setting or map to use the body, not the mind
or spirit. We have to change the settings or tune in properly,
or as the Buddha has it, detach from the ego. We still have
a sense of self which relies on beliefs or ideas. To change,
says Leonard Cohen, give up your most preciously held beliefs
first. Our society has it that we need fixed beliefs whereas
that should be flexible and adaptive. The simplest way is
to visualise that but doing it in the abstract, for the
mind, works better. Mind does not need senses being already
connected through spirit. That is why we have feelings and
as we get into more subtle levels the way of it changes
again, into what we can only call sensations in our aura.
We are said to have some seven chakras but
they only connect IT with the body. Our body is made up
of thousands of chakras, that word meaning knot. A blocked
chakra goes numb, making us unaware of it. Only mind can
undo this hence we need faith, trust, charity to allow IT
to do that. St. Paul says that obeying the law is utter
freedom. Chakras can be tuned positive, negative and neutral
or off, not connected. Each chakra is an energy point or
tuning coil to have certain things happen like knowing and
doing. The aura has further subtler chakras and that all
disappears when we get to the angelic level and we can,
so to speak, play piano on it.
