i wonder how did certain people so long ago get so much knowledge.


one group of humans are busy tending livestock, hunting. basically living their lives in a harsh life of limited medicine and life expectancy while SOME groups are doing math, science, esoterica. being rulers basically.



that is what i think about. the truth probably is...that the new world order only gets stronger as days go by. a truthsayer is always playing catchup. and learning about things way after the fact. to stop the nwo we'd have to start sending real msgs to the nwo. as long as you live and use money, the nwo is running. you'd have to literally build a city somewhere, that is powered by its own electricity systems. that refuses to pay taxes...and somehow gets recognition from that country as being a sovereign city. all food, education, and everything is entirelly regulated by that cities own decisions...this will NEVER happen....unless you goto some strange area of the world. but that is risky because that city has no way of protecting itselt from invasion.

you cant make a city in canada over a few decades of say 100 thousand "off the grid" thinking people, have canada say ok you can have that city. good luck. and then also have the canadian government step in with its military should some threat present itself to this sovereign city. this city cant even make offers because nothing it makes is of any value to canada and canada can produce anything it does in any of its own cities. so it has no leverage....

The Art of True Healing by
Israel Regardie
1.

Within every man and woman is a force which directs and controls the entire course of life. Properly used, it can heal every affliction and ailment to which mankind is heir. Every single religion affirms this fact. All forms of mental or spiritual healing, no matter under what name they travel, promise the same thing. Even psychoanalysis employs this power, though indirectly, using the now popular word libido. For the critical insight and understanding which it brings to bear upon the psyche releases tensions of various kinds, and through this release the healing power latent within and natural to the human system operates more freely. Each of these systems undertakes to teach its devotees technical methods of thinking or contemplation or prayer such as will, according to the a priori terms of their own philosophies, renew their bodies and transform their whole environment.
None or few of them, however, actually fulfil in a complete way the high promise made at the outset. There seems but little understanding of the practical means whereby the spiritual forces underlying the universe and permeating the entire nature of man may be utilised and directed towards the creation of a new heaven and a new earth. Naturally, without universal co-operation, such an ideal is impossible for all mankind. Nevertheless, each one for himself may commence the task of reconstruction.
The crucial question, then, is how are we to become aware of this force? What are its nature and properties? What is the mechanism whereby we can use it?
Untapped Currents
As I have said before, different systems have evolved widely differing processes by which the student might divine the presence of such a power. Meditation, prayer, invocation, emotional exaltation, and demands made at random upon the universe or the Universal Mind, have been a few of such methods. In the last resort, if we ignore petty details of a trivial nature, all have this in common. By turning the fiery penetrating power of the mind inwards upon itself, and exalting the emotional system to a certain pitch, we may become aware of previously unsuspected currents of force. Currents, moreover, almost electric in their interior sensation, healing and integrating in their effect.
It is the willed use of such a force that is capable of bringing health to body and mind. When directed it acts magnet-like. By this I mean that it attracts to whomsoever employs these methods just those necessities of life, material or spiritual, that he urgently requires or which are needed for his further evolution.
Fundamentally, the underlying idea of the mental healing systems is this. In the ambient atmosphere surrounding us and pervading the structure of each minute body-cell is a spiritual force. This force is omnipresent and infinite. It is present in the most infinitesimal object as it is in the most proportion-staggering nebula or island universe. It is this force which is life itself. Nothing in the vast expanse of space is dead. Everything pulsates with vibrant life. Even the ultra-microscopic particles of the atom are alive; in fact the electron is a crystallisation of its electric power.
This life force being infinite it follows that man must be saturated - permeated through and through with spiritual force. It constitutes his higher self, it is his link with godhead, it is God in man. Every molecule in his physical system must be soaked with its dynamic energy. Each cell in the body contains it in its plenitude. Thus we are brought face to face with the enormous problem underlying all disease, the enigmatical problem of nervous depletion.
What is Fatigue?
How can there be depletion if vitality and cosmic currents of force daily pour through man, simply saturating his mind and body with its power? Primarily, it is because he offers so much resistance to its flow through him that he becomes tired and ill, the conflict finally culminating in death. How is puny man able to defy the universe? Nay more, offer resistance and opposition to the very force which underlies, and continually evolves in, the universe? The complacency and confusion of his mental outlook, the moral cowardice by which he was reared, and his false perception of the nature of life - these are the causes of resistance to the inward flow of the spirit. That this is unconscious is no logical obstacle to the force of this argument, as all the depth psychologies have demonstrated. What man is really aware of all the involuntary processes going on within him? Who is conscious of the intricate mechanism of his mental processes, of that by which his food is assimilated and digested, of the circulation of his blood, of the arterial distribution of nourishment to every bodily organ? All these are purely involuntary processes: to a large degree so are his resistance’s to life. Man has surrounded himself with a crystallised shell of prejudices and ill-conceived fantasies, an armour which affords no entrance to light of life without.
What wonder he ails? What wonder he is so ill and impotent, helpless and poor? Why should there be surprise that the average individual is so unable to deal with life?
The First Two Steps to Health
The first step towards freedom and health is a conscious realisation of the vast spiritual reservoir in which we live and move and have our being. Repeated intellectual effort to make this part and parcel of one’s mental outlook upon life automatically breaks down or dissolves something of the hard inflexible shell of the mind. And then life and spirit pour abundantly. Health spontaneously arises, and a new life begins as the point of view undergoes this radical change. Moreover, it would appear that the environment attracts just those people who can help in various ways, and precisely those amenities of life that had been longed for.
The second step lies in a slightly different direction. Regulated breathing - quite a simple process. Its necessity follows from the following postulate. If life is - all about one, all penetrating and all pervasive, what more reasonable than that the very air we breathe from one moment to another should be highly charged with vitality? Our breathing processes we therefore regulate accordingly. We contemplate that life is the active principle in the atmosphere. During the practice of this rhythmical breathing at fixed periods of the day, there should be no strenuous forcing of the mind, no overtaxing of the will. We let the breath flow in while mentally counting very slowly...one, two, three, four. Then we exhale counting the same beat. It is fundamental and important that the initial rhythm, whether it be a four or a ten beat count or any other convenient one, should be maintained. For it is the very rhrythm itself which is responsible for the easy absorption of vitality from without, and the acceleration of the divine power within.
Rhythm
Immutable rhythm is everywhere manifest in the universe. It is a living process whose parts move and are governed in accordance with the cyclic laws. Look at the sun, the stars, and the planets. All move with comparable grace, with a rhythm in their inexorable times. It is only mankind that has wandered, in its ignorance and self-complacency, far from the divine cycles of things. We have interfered with the rhythmic process inherent in nature. And how sadly have we paid for it!
Therefore in attempting to attune ourselves once more to the to the intelligent spiritual power functioning through nature’s mechanism, we attempt, not blindly to copy, but intelligently to adopt her methods. Make, therefore, the breathing rhythmical at certain fixed times of the day, when there is little likelihood of disturbance. Cultivate above all the art of relaxation. Learn to address each tensed muscle from toe to head as you lie flat on you back in bed. Tell it deliberately to loosen its tension and cease from its unconscious contracture. Think of the blood in response to your command flowing copiously to each organ, carrying life and nourishment everywhere, producing a state of glowing radiant health. Only after these preliminary processes have been accomplished should you begin your rhythmic breathing, slowly and without haste. Gradually as the mind accustoms itself to the idea, the lungs will take up the rhythm spontaneously. In a few minutes it will have become automatic. The whole process the becomes extremely simple and pleasureable.
It would be impossible to overestimate its importance or efficacy. As the lungs take up the rhythm, automatically inhaling and exhaling to a measured beat, so do they communicate it and gradually extend it to all the surrounding cells and tissue - just as a stone thrown into a pool sends out widely expanding ripples and concentric circles of motion. In a few minutes the whole body is vibrating in unison with their movement. Every cell seems to vibrate sympathetically. And very soon, the whole organism comes to feel as if it were an inexhaustible storage battery of power. The sensation - and it must be a sensation is unmistakable.
Simple as it is, the exercise is not to be despised. It is upon the mastery of this very easy technique that the rest of this system stands. Master it first. Make sure that you can completely relax and then produce the rhythmic breath in a few seconds.
Mental and Spiritual Centres
2
I now approach an idea fundamental and highly significant. It is the inability to realise or thoroughly to have grasped its importance which really underlies the frequently observed failure of many mental culture and spiritual healing systems. Just as in the physical body are specialised organs for the performance of specialised functions, so in the mental and spiritual nature exist corresponding centres and organs. Exactly as the teeth, the stomach, liver and intestines are so many mechanisms evolved and devised by nature for the digestion and assimilation of food, so are there similar centres in the other constituents of man’s nature.
The mouth receives food. Digestion occurs in the stomach and small intestines. Likewise there is an apparatus for rejecting waste effete products. In the psychic nature also are focal centres for the absorption of spiritual power from the universe without. Others render its distribution and circulation possible. The dynamic energy and power entering man from without is not uniform or alike in vibratory rate. It may be of too high a voltage, so to say, readily to be endured by him. Within, therefore, is a certain psychic apparatus whereby indiscriminate cosmic currents of energy may be assimilated and digested, their voltage thus becoming stepped down or adjusted to the human level. The process of becoming aware of this psychic apparatus, and using the energy it generates, is an integral part of this healing system.
It is my contention that prayer and contemplative methods unconsciously employ these inner centres. Hence we would be wiser and far more efficient deliberately to employ for our own ends this spiritual power and the centres it flows through. Let us call these latter, for the moment, psycho-spiritual organs, of which there are five major ones. Since name them we must, inasmuch as the human mind loves to classify and tabulate things, let me give them the most non-committal and non-compromising titles imaginable so that no system of prejudice may be erected thereon. For convenience’s sake, the first we may name Spirit, the second Air, the succeeding ones being called Fire, Water and Earth.
To illustrate the concept, I reproduce a simple diagram. It shows the position and location of the centres. Not for one moment do I wish to be understood as stating that these centres are physical in nature and position (though there may be glandular parallelisms). They exist in a subtler spiritual or psychic part of man’s nature. We may even consider them, not as realities themselves, but as symbols of realities, great, redeeming and saving symbols. Under certain conditions we may become aware of them in very much the same way as we may become aware of different organs in our physical bodies. We often speak of reason as being situated in the head, referring emotion to the heart and instinct to the belly. Similarly, there exists a natural correspondence between these centres and various parts of the body.

THE MIDDLE PILLAR
Thought, Colour and Sound
It is axiomatic to this system that there are three principal engines or means whereby we may become aware of the centres to awaken them from their dormant state so that they may function properly within. Thought, colour, and sound are the three means. The mind must concentrate itself on the assumed position of these centres one by one. Then certain names which are to be considered as vibratory rates must be intoned and vibrated. Finally, each centre is to be visualised as having a particular colour and shape. The combination of these three agencies gradually awakens the centres from their latency. Slowly they become stimulated into functioning each according to its own nature, pouring forth a stream of highly spiritualized energy and power into the body and mind. When, ultimately, their operation becomes habitual and stabilised, the spiritual power they generate may be directed by will to heal various ailments and diseases both of a psychological and physical nature. It can also be communicated by mere laying of hands to another person. Simply by thinking fixedly and with intent, the energy, moreover, can be communicated from mind to mind telepathically or transmitted through space to another person miles away - objects in space affording no interruption or obstacle to its passage.
The Coronal Sphere
First of all, the position of the centres, as shown in the diagram, must be memorised. They are to be stimulated into activity either while sitting upright or whilst lying down flat on the back in a perfectly relaxed state. The hands may be folded in the lap, or else, with fingers interlocked, be permitted to rest loosely below the solar plexus. Calmness of mind should be induced, and several minutes devoted to rhythmic breathing should result in the sensation of a gentle ripple playing over the diaphragm.
Then imagine above the coronal region of the head a ball or sphere of brilliant white light. Do not force the imagination to visualise the light sphere. To force would only result in the development of neuromuscular tension, and this would defeat our end. Let it be done quietly and easily. If the mind wanders, as indeed it will,
4
wait a moment or two and gently lead it back. At the same time vibrate or intone the word Eheieh, pronounced Eh-huh-yeh. After a few days of practice it will become quite easy to imagine the name vibrating above the head in the so called Spirit centre. This is the indwelling or overshadowing divinity in each of us, the basic spiritual self which we can all draw upon. Eheieh means literally I AM, and this centre represents the I AM consciousness within.
The effect of thus mentally directing the vibration is to awaken the centre to dynamic activity. When once it begins to vibrate and rotate light and are felt to emanate downwards upon and into he personality. Enormous charges of spiritual power make their way into the brain, and the entire body feels suffused with vitality and life. Even the finger-tips and toes react to the awakening of the coronal sphere by a faint pricking sensation at first being felt. The name should be intoned during the first few weeks of practice in a moderately audible and sonorous tone of voice. As skill is acquired, then the vibration may be practised in silence, the name being imagined and mentally placed in the centre. If the mind tends to wander, the frequent repetition of the vibration will be found a great help to concentration.
The Air Centre
Having let the mind rest here for some five minutes, when it will be seen to glow and scintillate, imagine that it emits a white shaft downwards through the scull and brain, stopping at the throat. Here it expands to form a second ball of light, which should include a large part of the face, up to and including the eyebrows. If the larynx is conceived to be the centre of the sphere, then the distance from it to the cervical vertebrae at the back of the neck will be approximately the radius. Naturally this dimension will vary with different people. A similar technique should be pursued with this sphere, which we name the Air centre, as obtained with the previous one. It should be strongly and vividly formulated as a scintillating sphere of brilliant white light, shining and glowing from within. The name to be vibrated is Jehovah Elohim - pronounced as Yuh-hoh-voh Eh-loh-heem.
A word or two may not be amiss at this point with regard to the names. In reality they are names ascribed in various part of the Old Testament to God. The variety and variation of these names are attributed to different divine functions. When acting in a certain manner. He is described by the biblical scribes by one name. When doing something else, another name more appropriate to his action is used. The system I am describing now has its roots in the Hebrew mystical tradition. Its ancient innovators were men of exalted religious aspirations and genius. It is only to be expected that a religious bias was projected by them into this scientific psychological system. But it must be explained that for our present-day purposes no religious connotation is implied by my use of these biblical divine names. Anyone can use them without subscribing in the least to the ancient religious views - whether he be a Jew, Christian, Hindu, Buddhist or atheist. It is a purely empirical system which is successful despite the scepticism or faith of the operator. We today may consider these sacred names in an entirely different and practical light. They are keynotes of different constituents of man’s nature, doorways to so many levels of that part of the psyche of which normally we are unconscious. They are vibratory rates or symbolic signatures of the psychophysical centres we are describing. Their use as vibratory keynotes awakens into activity the centres with which their rate is in sympathy, conveying to our consciousness some recognition of the several levels of the unconscious spiritual side of our personalities. Hence the actual religious significance does not concern us. Nor their literal translation.
To refer back to the air centre in the throat, let the vibratory sounds be intoned a number of times, until its existence is recognised and clearly felt as a definite sensory experience. There is no mistaking the sensation of its awakening. About the same length of time should be spent formulating it and the succeeding centres as was devoted to the contemplation of the coronal sphere. This period having elapsed, let it thrust downward from itself, with the aid of imagination, a shaft of light.
The Fire Centre
Descending to the region of the solar plexus, just beneath the sternum breast-bone, the shaft expands once again to form a third sphere. This is the position of the Fire centre. The allocation of fire to this centre is particularly appropriate, for the heart is notoriously associated with the emotional nature, with love and the higher feelings. How often do we not speak of ardent passion, and the flame of love, and so forth? The diameter of this ambient cardiac sphere should be such as to extend from the front of the body to the back. Here vibrate the name Jehova Eloah ve-Daas, pronounced as Yuh-hoh-voh Eh-loh ve-Dah-ahs. Take care that the intonation vibrates well within the formulated white sphere. If this is done, at once a radiation of warmth will be felt to emanate from the centre, gently stimulating all the parts and organs about it. Some students have complained that the above divine name is unduly long and difficult to pronounce. After some experimentation, I have substituted the Gnostic name IAO for the Hebrew word. Both are attributed, qabalistically, to the Sephirah of Tiphareth on the Tree of Life, and so are equally valid. I have found it to be every bit as effective as the Hebrew name, and in
5
my own practice of this meditation I have permanently substituted the one for the other.
IAO should be pronounced eee-(as in key) ah-oh, slowly and with vigour. In point of fact, it is simpler to
vibrate this name than almost any other, and the vibration it produces is clear and strong.
Since the mind functions in and through the body, being co-extensive with it, the mental and emotional faculties likewise become stimulated by the dynamic flow of energy from the centres. The hard and fast barrier erected between consciousness and the unconscious, an armoured partition which impedes our free expression and hinders spiritual development, slowly becomes dissolved. As time goes on, and the practice continues, it may disappear completely and the personality gradually achieve integration and wholeness. Thus health spreads
to every function of mind and body and happiness ensues as a permanent blessing.
The Water Centre
Continue the shaft downwards from the solar plexus to the pelvic region, the region of the generative organs. Here too, a radiant sphere is to be visualised approximately of the same dimensions as the higher one. Here also is a name to be intoned so as to produce a rapid vibration in the cells and molecules of the tissue in that region. Shaddai El Chai is to be pronounced Shah-di El Chi (remember the ch is guttural as in ‘loch’). The mind must be permitted to dwell on the imaginative formulation for some minutes, visualising the sphere as of a white brilliance. And each time the mind wanders from such a brilliance, as at the beginning it is bound to do, let it gently be coaxed back by repeated and powerful vibrations of the name.
It may be feared that this practice could awaken or stimulate sexual feeling and emotion unnecessarily. In those in whom a sexual conflict is raging such an apprehension is just and legitimate. Actually, however, the fear is groundless. For the contemplation of the Water centre as a sphere of white light connected by a shaft to the higher and more spiritual centres acts rather in a more sedative way. And in point of fact sexual stimulation can be removed, not by ignorant and short-sighted repression, but by the circulation of such energies through the system by means of this practice. A thoroughgoing and far-reaching process of sublimation, Alchemical almost in effect, may thus be instigated. This is not to be construed as legitimising the avoidance of the sexual problem.
The Earth Centre
The final step is once more to visualise the shaft descending from the reproductive sphere, moving downwards through the thighs and legs until it strikes the feet. There it expands from a point approximately beneath the ankle, and forms a fifth sphere. We have named this one the Earth centre. Let the mind formulate here exactly as before a brilliant dazzling sphere fop the same size as the others. vibrate the name Adonai ha- Aretz as Ah-doh-ni hah-Ah-retz. Several minutes having been utilised in awakening this centre by fixed and steady thought and by repeated vibration of the name, pause for a short while.
The try to visualise clearly the entire shaft of silvery light, studded as it were with five gorgeous diamonds of incomparable brilliance, stretching from the crown of the head to the soles of the feet. But a few minutes will suffice to give reality to this concept, bringing about a vivid realisation of the powerful forces which, playing upon the personality, are eventually assimilated into the phychophysical system after their transformation and passage through the imaginative centres. The combination of rhythmic breathing with the willed visualisation of the decent of power through the light shaft or Middle Pillar, as it is also called, produces by far the best results.
Colour Correspondences
As skill and familiarity are acquired in the formulation of the centres, an addition to the technique may be made. Earlier I remarked that colour was a very important consideration where this technique was concerned. Each centre has a different colour attribution, though it is wisest for a long period of time to refrain from using any other colour that white. To the Spirit or coronal centre the colour white is attributed. It is the colour of purity, spirit, divinity, and so on. It represents, not so much a human constituent, but a universal and cosmic principle overshadowing the whole of mankind. As we descend the shaft, however, the colours change. Lavender is attributed to the Air or throat centre, and it represents particularly the mental faculties - human consciousness as such.
To the Fire centre, red is an obvious association requiring no further comment. Blue is the colour referred to the Water centre; it is the colour of peace, calmness and tranquillity, concealing enormous strength and virility. In other words, its peace is the peace of strength and power rather than the inertia of mere weakness. Finally, the colour referred to the lowest centre of Earth is russet, the rich deep colour of the earth itself, the foundation upon which we rest.
From this very brief and concise summary it will be seen that each of these centres has a species of affinity 6
or sympathy with a different spiritual constituent. One centre is peculiarly sympathetic to or is associated with the emotions and feelings, whilst another has definitely an intellectual bias. Hence it follows logically, and experience demonstrates this fact, that their equilibrated activity and stimulation evokes a sympathetic reaction from every part of man’s nature. And where disease manifesting in the body is directly due to some psychic maladjustment or infirmity, then the activity of the appropriate centre must be affected somehow in a deleterious way. Its stimulation by sound and colour, tends to stimulate the corresponding psychic principle and thus to disperse the maladjustment. Sooner or later a reaction is induced physically in the disappearance of the disease, and the consequent building up of new cells and tissue - the appearance of health itself.
2.
We approach a further and important stage in the development of the Middle Pillar technique. Having brought power and spiritual energy into the system by means of the psycho-spiritual centres, how best are we to use it? That is to say, use it in such a way that every single cell, every atom, and every organ becomes stimulated and vitalised by that dynamic stream?
To begin with, we throw the mind upwards to the coronal sphere again, imagining it to be in a state of vigorous activity. That is, it revolves rapidly, absorbing spiritual energy from space about it, transforming it in such a way that it becomes available for immediate use in any human activity. Imagine then that such transformed energy flows, stream-like, down the left side of the head, down the left side of the trunk and the left leg. While the current is descending the breath should slowly be exhaled to a convenient rhythm. With the slow inhalation of the breath, imagine that the vital current passes from the sole of the left foot to the right foot, and gradually ascends the right side of the body. In this way it returns to the source from which it issued, the coronal centre, the human source of all energy and vitality, a closed electrical circuit thus being established. Naturally this circulation is visualised as persisting within the body rather than as travelling around the periphery of the physical shape. It is, so to say, and interior psychic circulation rather than a purely physical one.
Stimulating Circulation
Let this circulation, once firmly established by the mind, flow evenly to the rhythm of the breath for some seconds so that the circuit has been traversed about half a dozen times - or even more, if you wish. Then repeat it in a slightly different direction. Visualise the vital flow as moving from the coronal centre above the head down the front of the face and body. After having turned backwards under the soles of the feet, it ascends at the back in a fairly wide belt of vibrating energy. This, likewise should accompany the inhalation and exhalation of breath, and should also be persisted in for at least six complete circuits.
The general effect of these two movements will be to establish in and about the physical form an ovoid shape of swiftly circulating substance and power. Since the spiritual energy dealt with by this technique is extremely dynamic and kinetic, it radiates in every direction, spreading outwards to an appreciable distance. It is this radiation which forms, colours and informs the ovoid sphere of sensation which is not conterminous with the shape or dimension of the physical frame. General perception and experience has it that the sphere of luminosity and magnetism extends outwards to a distance more or less identical with the length of the outstretched arm. And it is within this aura, as we call it, that the physical man exists rather like a kernel within a nut. Circulating the force admitted into the system by the former mental exercises is tantamount to charging it to a considerable degree in every department of its nature with life and energy. Naturally this is bound to exert a considerable influence, so far as general health is concerned, upon the enclosed ‘kernel’ within.
The final method of circulation rather resembles the action of a fountain. Just as water is forced or drawn up through a pipe until it jets up above, falling in a spray on all sides, so does the power directed by this last circulation. Throw the mind downwards to the Earth centre, imagining it to be the culmination of all the others, the receptacle of power, the storehouse and terminal of he incoming vital force. The imagine that this power ascends, or is drawn or sucked upwards by the magnetic attraction of the Spirit centre above the crown of the head. The power ascends the shaft and then falls down within the confines of the ovoid aura. When it has descended to the feet it is again gathered together and concentrated in the Earthcentre preparatory to being pushed up the shaft again. As before, the fountain circulation should accompany a definite rhythm of inhalation and exhalation. By these means, the healing force is distributed to every part of the body. No single atom or cell in any organ or limb is omitted from the influence of its healing regenerative power.
The circulation completed, the mind may be permitted to dwell on the idea of the sphere of light, spiritual and healing in quality, surrounding the entire body. The visualisation should be made as vivid and as powerful as possible. The sensation, following the partial or complete formulation of the aura in the manner described, is so marked and definite as to be quite unmistakable. In the first place it is marked by an extreme sense of calmness and vitality and poise, as though the mind was placid and still. The body, completely at rest in a state of
7
relaxation, feels in all parts thoroughly charged and permeated by the vibrant current of life. The skin over all the body will throw up symptoms, caused by the intensification of life within, of a gentle pricking and warmth. The eyes become clear and bright, the skin takes on a fresh healthy glow, and every faculty, mental, emotional and physical, becomes enhanced to a considerable degree.

Re: Meaning of or in life

Post  KapitanScarlet on Sat 19 Nov 2011, 03:46

Focusing Energy
This is the moment when, should there be any functional disturbances in any organ or limb, the attention should be directed and focused on that part. The result of this focus of attention directs a flow of energy over and above the general equilibrium just established. The diseased organ becomes bathed in a sea of light and power. Diseased tissue and diseased cells, under the stimulus of such power, become gradually broken down and ejected from the personal sphere. The revitalised blood-stream is the able to send to that spot new nourishment and new life so that new tissue, fibre, cells, etc., can easily be built up. In this way, health is restored by the persistent concentration there of the divine power. Carried on for a few days in the case of superficial ailments, and for months in the event of chronic and severe troubles, all symptoms may successfully be banished without others coming to take their place. There is no suppression of symptoms. Elimination is the result of these methods. Even psychogenic eruptions may thus be cured. For the currents of force arise from the deepest strata of the unconscious, where these psychoneuroses have their origin and where the lock up the nervous energy, preventing spontaneous and free expression of the psyche. The upwelling of the libido, as the vital force is called in psychological circles, dissolves the crystallisation’s and armoured barriers which divide the various strata of psychic function.
Where organic disease is the problem to be attacked, the procedure to be followed is slightly different. (One should still be under the care of a competent physician.) In this instance a considerably stronger current of force is required such as will dissolve the lesion and be sufficient to set in motion those systemic and metabolic activities to construct new tissue and cellular structure. To fulfil these conditions in an ideal sense a second person may be requisite to that his vitality added to that of the sufferer may overcome the condition. A useful technique which my experience has discovered supremely successful, and which any student can adopt, is first of all to relax completely every tissue throughout the body before attempting the Middle Pillar technique. The patient is placed in a highly relaxed state, one in which every neuromuscular tension has been tested and called to the attention of the patient. Consciousness is then able to eliminate tension and induce a relaxed state of that muscle or limb. I have found a useful preliminary in the practice of spinal manipulation and massage, with deep kneadings and effleurage, for in this way an enhanced circulation of the blood and lymph is produced - which from the physiological point of view is half the battle won. A suitable degree of relaxation obtained, the patient’s feet are crossed over the ankles and his finger interlaced to rest lightly over the solar plexus. The operator or healer the seats himself on the right side of the person should the patient be right-handed - vice versa for a left- handed patient. Placing his right hand gently on the solar plexus under the patient’s head, at once a form of rapport is established. Within a few minutes a free circulation of magnetism and vitality is set up, readily discernible both by patient and healer.
The patient’s attitude should be one of absolute receptivity to the incoming force - automatic, should he have unwavering confidence and faith in the operator’s integrity and ability. Silence and quiet should be maintained for a short while, following which the operator silently performs the practice of the Middle Pillar, still maintaining his physical contact with the patient. His awakened spiritual centres act on the patient by sympathy. A similar awakening is introduced with the patient’s sphere, and his centres eventually begin to operate and throw an equilibrated stream of energy into his system. Even when the operator does not vibrate the divine name audibly, the power flowing through his fingers sets up an activity which will surely produce some degree of healing activity within the patient. His psycho-spiritual centres are sympathetically stirred into the active assimilation and projection of force so that, without any conscious effort on his part, his sphere is invaded by the divine power of healing and life.
When the operator arrives at the circulation stage, he so employs his inner visualising faculty, a veritable magical power indeed, that the augmented currents ofd energy flow not only through his own sphere but through that of his patient as well. The nature of this rapport now begins to undergo a subtle change. Whereas formerly there existed close sympathy and a harmonious frame of mind, mutually held, during and after the circulation there is an actual union and interblending of the two energy fields. The unite to form a single continuous sphere as the interchange and transference of vital energy proceed. Thus the operator, or his unconscious psyche or spiritual self, is able to divine exactly what potential his projected current should be, and precisely to where it should be directed.
A number of these treatments incorporating the co-operation and training of the patient in the use of mental methods should certainly go far in alleviating the original condition. Occasionally, since fanaticism above all is to be eschewed, medical and manipulative methods may usefully be combined with the mental methods described to facilitate and hasten the cure.

Although I have stressed healing of physical ills in the above, it cannot be insisted upon too strongly that this method is suitable for application to a host of other problems. This description of technique will be found adequate for all other situations which may come before the student . whether it be a problem of poverty, character development, social or marital difficulties - and in fact any other problem type of which one can think.
Recapitulation: The Preliminaries
Repetition is often invaluable both in teaching and in learning new subjects. Hence some recapitulation of he various processes involved in the Middle Pillar practice will help to clarify some of the issues. And I should like to add a further consideration which will help to render the entire method more effectual, lifting it up to a higher plane of spiritual understanding and achievement. This final step will enable the student to call into operation dynamic factors within the human psyche which will aid in the production of the desired result.
The first step, as we have seen, is a psycho-physical exercise. The student must learn how to relax, how to loosen the chronic grip of neuromuscular tensions in his body. Every involuntary tension in any group of muscles or tissues in any area of the body must be brought within the scope of his conscious awareness. Awareness is the magical key by means of which such tension may literally be melted away and dissolved. Only a little practice is necessary for this, and skill is very readily obtained. The important conclusion following upon physical relaxation is that the mind itself in all its departments and ramifications undergoes a similar relaxation.
Psychic tension and somatic inflexibility are the great barriers to realising the omnipresence of the body of God. They actually prevent one from becoming aware of the ever-presence of the life-force, the dependence of the mind upon - even its ultimate identity with - the Universal Mind, the Collective Unconscious. The mind’s petty barriers eliminated, and life flowing through its extensive organisation, almost immediately we become conscious of the dynamic principle pervading and permeating all things. This step is without question the all- important phase in the application of these psycho-spiritual techniques.
Once having become aware of the preceding, the logical procedure is to awaken the inner spiritual centres which can handle, as it were, this high-voltage power and transform it into a unable human quality. Possibly the easiest way to conceive of this is to liken the spiritual part of man to a radio receiving set. The instrument must first be started with power either from the battery or from the main before it will work. Once power is flowing through it, then the rest of the intricate mechanism of wiring, transformers, condensers, tubes and antennae are able to come into operation. So also with man. We can tune ourselves to the Infinite more readily through the mechanism of lighting up the inner centres, man’s own radio tubes. When the radio set is operative, then the divine current can be shot through the set in various ways, until both body and mind become powerfully vitalised and strong with spiritual energy.
Prayer
But all this is merely preparatory. The radio set may be lighted, the condensers and transformers and antennae in perfect operation - but what do we want to do with it? So also here. We need money. Sickness is present. Or we have undesirable moral or mental traits - or what not. We have so to elevate our minds, in the utilisation of this spiritual energy, that the desire of our heart automatically realises itself with practically no effort at all. The wish, the heart’s desire, the goal to be reached, must be held firmly in mind, vitalised by divine power, but propelled forward into the universe by the fiery intensity of all the emotional exaltation we are capable of. Prayer is therefore indispensable. Prayer, not merely as a petition to some God outside of the universe, but prayer conceived as the spiritual and emotional stimulus calculated to bring about an identification with or realisation of our own Godhead, Prayer, sincerely, undertaken, will mobilise all the qualities of the self, and the inner fervour that it will awaken will reinforce the work previously done. It will render success an almost infallible result. For in such a case, success not because of one’s own human effort, but because God brings about the result. The fervour and the emotional exaltation enable one to realise the divinity within, which is the spiritual factor which brings our desires to immediate and complete fulfilment.
But I question whether prayer of the quite unemotional variety has any value at all here. This cold-blooded petitioning finds no place within the highest conceptions of spiritual achievement. An ancient metaphysician once said, ‘Inflame thyself with prayer.’ Here is the secret. We must so pray that the whole of our being becomes aflame with a spiritual intensity before which nothing can stand. All illusions and all limitations fade away utterly before this fervour. When the soul literally burns up, the spiritual identity with God is attained. Then the heart’s desire is accomplished without effort - because God does it. The wish becomes fact - objective, phenomenal fact, for all to see.
What prayers, then, should be employed to lift the mind to this intensity, to awaken the emotional fervour of which it was said ‘inflame thyself in praying’? That I conceive to be a problem to be solved each one for himself. Every man and woman has some idea about prayer which, when sustained, will inflame him to inward
9
realisation. Some people will use a poem that has always had the effect of exalting them. Others will use the Lord’s prayer, or maybe Psalm 23. And so on for all possible types. For myself, I prefer the use of some archaic hymns known as invocations, but which are prayers nonetheless, which certainly have the desired effect upon me of arousing the necessary emotional potential. In the hope that these might be useful to others, I append herewith a couple of fragments, the first one being composed of vesicles from various scriptures.
I am the Resurrection and the Life. Whosoever believeth on me though he were dead, yet shall he live, and whosoever liveth and believeth on me shall have everlasting life. I am the First, and I am the Last. I am He that liveth and was dead - but behold! I am alive for evermore, and hold the keys of hell and death. For I know that my Redeemer liveth and that he shall stand at the latter day upon the Earth. I am the Way, the Truth, and the Life. No man cometh unto the Father but by me. I am the Purified. I have passed through the gates of darkness unto Light. I have fought upon earth for good. I have finished my work. I have entered into the invisible.
I am the Sun in his rising, passed through the hour of cloud and of night. I am Amoun, the Concealed One, the opener of the day. I am Osiris Onnophris, the Justifed One, the Lord of Life, triumphant over death. There is no part of me which is not of the Gods. I am the preparer of the Pathway, the Rescuer of the Pathway, the Rescuer unto the Light. Let the White Light of the Divine Spirit Descend.
The second fragment is rather different from the above although both have a similar personal effect when slowly repeated, meditated upon and felt intensely. This second prayer consists of two parts - the first one being a sort of petition of the higher divine self, whilst the second part bespeaks of the realisation of identity with it.
Thee I invoke the Bornless One. Thee that didst create the Earth and the Heavens. Thee that didst create the Night and Day. Thee that didst create the Darkness and the Light. Thou art Man- Made-Perfect, whom no man hath seen at any time. Thou art God and very God. Thou hast distinguished between the Just and the Unjust. Thou didst make the female and the male. Thou didst produce the seed and the fruit. Thou didst form men to love one another and to hate one another. Thou didst produce the moist and the dry, and That which nourisheth all created things.
The second half should follow only after a long pause, in which one attempts to realise just what it is that the prayer has asserted, and that it is raising the mind to an appreciation of the hidden secret Godhead within, which is the creator of all things.
This is the Lord of the Gods. This is the Lord of the Universe. This is He whom the winds fear. This is He, who having made voice by his commandment is Lord of all things, king, ruler and helper. Hear me and make all spirits subject unto me, so that every spirit of the firmament and of the ether, upon the earth and under the earth, on dry land and in the water, of whirling air, and of rushing fire, and every spell and scourge of God the Vast One may be made obedient unto me.
I am He, the Bornless Spirit, having sight in the feet, strong and the immortal Fire. I am He, the Truth, I am He who hate that evil should be wrought into the world. I am He that lighteneth and thundereth. I am He from whom is the shower of the Life of Earth. I am He whose mouth ever flameth. I am He, the begetter and manifester unto the Light. I am He, the Grace of the World. The Heart Girt with a Serpent is my Name.
The prayer fragments are suggested only and are to be used or rejected as each student feels fit. They operate for me - they may operate in the case of other students, or not, as the case may be.
Non-therapeutic Uses
Quite apart from therapy, there are other uses of the Middle Pillar technique as I have intimated above. The enterprising student will divine his own usage’s for it.
It may be for various reasons that certain necessities of life, either physical or spiritual, have been denied one - with a consequent cramping effect on character and the onset of a sense of frustration. The latter always has a depressing and inhibitory effect on the human mind, producing indecision, inefficiency and inferiority. There is no real necessity why there should be any undue frustration and inhibition in our lives. A certain amount is no doubt inevitable. So long as we remain human it is quite certain that in some measure we are likely to be thwarted in our efforts fully to express the inner self, thus experiencing some degree of frustration. But any abnormal measure of persistent sense of thwarting and frustration may be dealt with and, by these mental and spiritual methods eliminated.
First of all an understanding of life is essential, and an unconditional acceptance of everything in life and
every experience that may come one’s way. With understanding will come a love of life and living, for love and understanding are one and the same. It will also foster the determination no longer to frustrate natural processes but by acceptance to cooperate with nature. The methods of spiritual and mental culture have long held out hope that these inhibitory conditions may be alleviated.
Poverty of estate as well as of idea is a life-condition which these techniques have always acknowledged to be menable to treatment. The usual method is one of such deep and prolonged reflection upon just that mental stimulus, moral quality or material thing which is wanted, that the idea of the need sinks into the so-called subconscious mind. If the barriers leading to the subconscious are penetrated so that the latter accepts the idea of the need, then, so it is said, sooner or later life will inevitably attract one of those things required. But, as with all therapeutic methods, there were so many instances where, despite close adherence to the prescribed techniques, success was not forthcoming. It is my contention, therefore, that they fail for very must the same reasons that their healing efforts fail. In short, it was because there was no true understanding of the interior psychodynamic mechanism whereby such effects could be produced. There was no appreciation of the methods by which the dynamic nature of the unconscious could be so stimulated that the human personality became transformed into a powerful magnet attracting to itself whatever it truly desired or was necessary to welfare.
Whether this procedure is morally defensible is a question I do not wish to discuss at length, though I know it will be raised. But the answer is brief. Whatever faculties we have are meant to be used, and used both for our own advantage and that of others. If we are in a state of constant mental friction, emotional frustration, and excessive poverty, I fail to see in what way we can be of service either to ourselves or our fellow men. Eliminate these restrictions first, improve the mental and emotional faculties so that the spiritual nature is able to penetrate through the personality and manifest itself in practical ways, then we are in a position to be of some service to those with whom we come into contact. The preliminary stimulation of the psycho-spiritual centres within, and then formulating clearly and vividly one’s demands upon the universe is capable of attracting almost anything required, so long, naturally, as it exists within the bounds of reason and possibility.
Using the Astrological Structure
First of all, let me preface my further remarks by stating that from the practical point of view the rudiments of the astrological schema are of untold value in that they offer a concise classification of the broad divisions of things. I am not concerned here with astrology as such, merely that it is convenient to use its schema. Its roots are in the seven principal ideas of planets to which most ideas and things may be referred. To each of these root ideas there is attributed a positive and negative colour, and a divine name for the purpose of vibration. I propose naming the planets with their principal attributions as follows:
Saturn. Older people and old plans. Debts and their repayment. Agriculture, real estate, death, wills, stability, inertia. Positive colour indigo; negative black. Jehovah Elo-him, pronounced Yeh-hoh-voh Eh-loh- heem.
Jupiter. Abundance, plenty, growth, expansion, generosity. Spirituality, visions, dreams, long journeys. Bankers, creditors, debtors, gambling. Positive colour purple; negative blue. El, pronounced exactly as written.
Mars. Energy, haste, anger, construction or destruction (according to application), danger, surgery. Vitality and magnetism. Will-power. Positive and negative colours bright red. Elohim Gibor, pronounced Eh-loh-heem Gibor.
Sun. Superiors, employers, executives, officials. Power and success. Life, money, growth of all kinds. Illumination, imagination, mental power. Health. Positive colour orange; negative colour yellow or gold. Jehovah Eloah ve-Daas, pronounced Yeh-hoh-voh El-loh ve-dah-ahs, IAO as explained previously.
Venus. Social affairs, affections and emotions, women, younger people. All pleasures and the arts, music, beauty, extravagance, luxury, self-indulgence. Both colours emerald green. Jehovah Tzavoös, pronounced Yeh- hoh-voh Tsah-voh-ohs.
Mercury. Business matters, writing, contracts, judgement and short travels. Buying, selling, bargaining. Neighbours, giving and obtaining information. Literary capabilities and intellectual friends. Books, papers. Positive colour yellow; negative colour orange. Elohim Tzavoös.
Moon. General public, women. Sense reactions. Short journeys and removals. Changes and fluctuations. 11
The personality. The personality. Positive colour blue; negative colour puce. Shah-dai El Chai.
These very briefly are the attributions of the planets under which almost everything and every subject in nature may be classified. This classification is extremely useful because it simplifies enormously one’s task of physical and spiritual development. It may be best if before concluding I instance a few simple and elementary examples to illustrate the function and method of employing these correspondences.
Using Astrological Correspondences
Suppose I am engaged in certain studies requiring books that are not easily obtainable from booksellers. Despite my every demand for them, in spite of widespread advertising and willingness to pay a reasonable price for them, my efforts are unavailing. The result is that for the time my studies are held up. This delay reaches the point when it is excessive and irritating, and I decide to use my own technical methods for ending it. At certain prescribed intervals, preferably upon awakening in the morning and before retiring to sleep at night, I practise the rhythmic breath and the Middle Pillar. By these methods I have made available enormous quantities of spiritual power, and transformed the unconscious into a powerful storage battery, ready to project or attract power to fulfil my need. This I circulate through the auric system.
My next step consists of visualising the negative or passive colour of Mercury, orange, so that meditating upon it changes the surrounding uric colour to that hue. Orange is used because books, which I need, are attributed to Mercury; and I employ the negative colour because it tends to make the sphere of sensation open, passive and receptive. Then I proceed to charge and vitalise the sphere by vibrating the divine name again and again, until it seems to my perceptions that all the mercurial forces of the universe react to the magnetic attraction of that sphere. All the forces of the universe are imagined to converge upon my sphere, attracting to me just those books, documents, critics, friends and so on, needed to further my work. Inevitably, after persistent and concentrated work I hear from friends or booksellers quite by chance, so it would see, that these books are available. Introductions are procured to the right people, and taken by and large my work is assisted. The results occur, however in a perfectly natural way.
One is not to imagine that the use of these methods contravenes the known laws of nature and that miraculous phenomena will occur. Far from it. There is nothing in them that is supernatural. These methods are based upon the use of psychic principles normally latent within man, and which everyone possesses. No individual is unique in this respect. And the use of these psychic principles brings results through quite normal but unsuspected channels.
On the other hand, should I desire to help a colleague who has literary aspirations but at a certain juncture finds his style cramped and the free flow of ideas inhibited, I should alter my method in one particular point only. Instead of using orange as before, I should visualise the aura as of a yellow or golden colour, through the vibratory name would be the same. Again, instead of imagining the universal forces to have a centripetal motion towards my sphere, I should attempt to realise that the mercurial forces awakened within me by the colour visualisation and vibration are being projected from me to my patient. If he, too, becomes quite and meditative at the same hour, my help becomes more powerful since he consciously assists my efforts with a similar meditation. But this need not be insisted upon. For, as shown by telepathy experiments, the greater part of the receiver’s impressions are unconsciously received. Therefore, in the case of the patient, his own unconscious psyche will pick up automatically and of necessity the inspiration and power I have telepathically forwarded to him in absentia.
This system combines telepathic suggestion with the willed communication of vital power. I strenuously oppose those partitive apologists who uphold in theory the one faculty to the detriment of the other. Some deny suggestion or telepathy, and argue overenthusiastically on behalf of vital magnetism. Others refuse categorically to admit the existence of magnetism, pressing their proofs exclusively in favour of telepathy and suggestion. Both, to my mind, are incorrect and dogmatic when insisting upon their idea alone as having universal validity or as being the sole logical mode of explanation. Equally, each is right in some respects and in certain number of cases; there is a place for both in the natural economy of things. The resources of nature are both great and extensive enough to admit the mutual existence of both of them, and innumerable other powers also.
Self-analysis
The technical procedure is, as I have shown, extremely simple - even where employed for subjective ends. Suppose the realisation suddenly comes to me that instead of being the magnanimous person I had imagined myself to be I am really mean and stingy. Of course I could go through a course of psychoanalysis to discover why my nature early in life had become warped so that a habit of meanness was engendered. But this is a lengthy and costly business - bad arguments, admittedly, against its necessity. And so much would depend upon the
12
analyst and his relations with myself. Instead, however, I might resort to the following technique. My first steps consist of those described above - rhythmic breathing, the light-shaft formulated from head to foot, and the circulation of force through the aura. Then remembering that a generous outlook upon and an attitude towards life is a Jupiterian quality, I would surround myself with an azure sphere whilst vibrating frequently and powerfully the divine name El. It depends entirely upon one’s skill and familiarity with the system whether the names are vibrated silently or audibly, but by either way, powerful Jupiterian currents would permeate my being. I would even visualise every cell being bathed in an ocean of blueness; and I would attempt to imagine currents invading my sphere from every direction, so that all my thinking and feeling is literally in terms of blueness. Slowly a subtle transformation ensues. That is, it would were I really sincere, desirous of correcting my faults, and if I did attempt to become generous enough as to perform the practice faithfully and often.
Likewise, if a friend or patient complained of a similar vice in him, appealing to me for help, in this instance I would use a positive colour for projection. I would formulate my sphere as an active dynamic purple sphere, rich and royal in colour, and project its generous, healing, and fecund influence upon his mind and personality. With time the fault would be corrected to his satisfaction and thus enhance his spiritual nature.
And so on, with everything else. The few examples will, I am sure, have shown the application of the methods.
It is not enough simply to wish for certain results and idly expect them to follow. Failure only can come from such an idle course. Anything worth while and likely to succeed requires a great deal of work and perseverance. The Middle Pillar technique is certainly no exception. But devotion to it is extremely worthwhile because of the nature and quality of the results which follow. Once a day will demonstrate the efficacy of the method. Twice a day would be much better - especially if there is some illness or psychic difficulty to overcome. After a while, the student who is sincere and in whom the spiritual nature is gradually unfolding, will apply himself to the methods quite apart from the promise which I have here held out. Healing powers, freedom from poverty and worry, happiness - all these are eminently desirable. But over and above all of these is the desirability of knowing and expressing the spiritual self within - though it may be in some cases that this ideal is hardly attainable until some measure of fulfilment in other respects and on other levels has been achieved. When, however, the ideal is realised as desirable, the value of this method will also be realised as supremely effectual to that end.

Amazing post Kapis, thanks.
I feel like I'm slowly realizing what's really going on around me and I can't believe how painfully different it is to life itself. It seems there is much more death, inflicted and intentional now than ever. If God is a point of light, each of us maybe, why would it want to experience the physical. Is there more freedom then, we can't see if for some reason or get to it.
To illustrate the concept, I reproduce a simple diagram. It shows the position and location of the centres. Not for one moment do I wish to be understood as stating that these centres are physical in nature and position (though there may be glandular parallelisms). They exist in a subtler spiritual or psychic part of man’s nature. We may even consider them, not as realities themselves, but as symbols of realities, great, redeeming and saving symbols. Under certain conditions we may become aware of them in very much the same way as we may become aware of different organs in our physical bodies.
This reminds me of when a person used to supposedly have use of other organs and facilities. And now they exist only in other realities.

Yeah some highly expansive perception there seraphim , i believe that this excerpt is of similar quality

Approaching the matter from another point of view, it may be said that Magic deals with the same problems as Religion. It does not waste its or our valuable time with futile speculations with regard to the existence or nature of God. It affirms dogmatically that there is an omnipresent and eternal life principle--and thereupon, in true scientific fashion, lays down a host of methods for proving it for oneself. How may we know God? Here, as before, there is a well-defined and elaborate technique for dealing with the human consciousness as such and exalting it to an immediate experience of the universal spirit permeating and sustaining all things. I say advisedly that its technique is well-defined. For the system has an abhorrence of the attitude of those good-natured but muddle-headed thinkers who, refusing to accept their human limitations as they are now, aim too high without dealing with the manifold problems in the way.
Let us assume that yonder building is ten storeys high. How may we reach the roof? Certainly not by ignoring the very obvious fact that at least two hundred feet intervene between us and the roof! Yet that is precisely the attitude of the so-called simplicity cult in mystical religion. God, they affirm, is an exalted state of infinite consciousness to which the microcosmic mind must be united. So far, so good--and here Magic is in accord with their view. Therefore, these people propose to attempt gaining the summit of attainment by ignoring the steps between man as we find him now and the supreme end-- God. It is as though they wished to jump from the ground to the roof of the aforesaid building.
Magic adopts a slightly different attitude. It is one, however, which is markedly similar to the common-sense attitude of the mythical man in the street. To get to the top of the building we must either climb the various flights of stairs leading there, or else take the lift upwards. In either case, it is a graduated process--an evolution, if you wish.
Man, holds the magical theory, is a more or less complicated creature whose several faculties of feeling, sensation, and thinking have slowly been evolved in the course of aeons of evolution. It is fatal to ignore these faculties, for evidently they were evolved for some useful purpose in answer to some inner need. Hence, in aspiring towards divine union, surely a laudable goal, we must be quite sure that our method, whatever it is, takes into consideration those faculties and develops them to the stage where they too may participate in the experience. If evolution is
held up as a suitable process, then the whole man must evolve, and not simply little bits or aspects of him, whilst other parts of his nature are left undeveloped at a primitive or infantile level of being. Moreover, these faculties must be so trained as to be able to "take" the enormous tension sure to be imposed upon them by so exalted but nevertheless so powerful an
attainment. Each faculty must be deliberately trained and carried stage by stage through various levels of human and cosmic consciousness so that gradually they become accustomed to the high potential of energy, ideation, and inspiration that must inevitably accompany illumination and an extension of consciousness. Failure to consider such a viewpoint in terms of its dynamics undoubtedly must account for the catastrophies so frequently encountered in occult
and mystical circles.
To present a bird's-eye view of the entire field of Magic, let me summarily state that for convenience the subject may be divided into at least three major divisions. One-- Divination. Two -- Evocation and Vision. Three -- Invocation. I will define each separately and at some little length.
With regard to the first division, the magical hypothesis is quite definite. It holds that divination is not ultimately concerned with mere fortune-telling--nor even with divining the spiritual
causes in the background of material events, though this latter is of no little unimportance. On the contrary, however, the practice of divination when conducted aright has as its objective the development of the inner psychic faculty of intuition. It is an enormous asset spiritually to have developed an exquisite sensitivity to the inner subtle world of the psyche. When carried on for a sufficiently long period of time, the practice builds slowly but efficiently a species of bridge between the consciousness of man and that deeper hidden part of his psyche of which usually he is not aware--the Unconscious, or higher Self. In these deeper spiritual aspects of his nature are the divine roots of discrimination, spiritual discernment, and lofty wisdom. The object of divination is quite simply, then, the construction of a psychic mechanism whereby this source of inspiration and life may be made accessible to the ordinary consciousness, to the ego. That this mechanism is concerned at the outset with providing answers to apparently trivial questions is by itself no objection to the technique itself. The preliminary approaches to any study may seem unworthy to or incompatible with that study. And divination is no exception to the general trend. Nor is the objection valid that the technique is open to frequent abuse by unscrupulous charlatans. But practised sincerely and intelligently and assiduously by the real student, consciousness gradually opens itself to a deeper level of awareness. "The brain becomes porous to the recollections and dictates of the soul," to use a current theosophical expression, is a true statement of the actual results of the training. As the object of analytical psychology is the assimilation of the repressed content of the Unconscious to the ordinary wake-a-day consciousness, so by these other magical means the human mind becomes aware of itself as infinitely vaster, deeper and wiser than ever it realised before. A sense of the spiritual aspect of things dawns upon the mind--a sense of one's own innate high wisdom, and a recognition of divinity working through man and the universe. Surely such a viewpoint elevates divination above the level of a mere occult art to an intrinsic part of mystical endeavour.
Geomancy, Tarot and Astrology, these are the fundamental techniques of the divinatory system. Geomancy is divination by means of earth. At one time, its practitioners actually used sand or black earth in which to trace its sigils and symbols--a typically primitive or mediaeval method. Today Geomantic diviners use pencil and paper, relying upon graphite in their pencils to formulate, theoretically, a magical link between themselves and the so-called divining intelligences or elementals of Earth. It is, so far as my own experience goes, a highly efficient technique, and I can clairn at least an 80% degrce of accuracy over several years. Tarot is the name of a set of cards, seventy-eight in number, which were introduced into Europe in either the fourteenth or fifteenth century from . . . ? No-one knows where they came from. Their origin is a complete mystery. At one period in Europe there were no such cards available, so far as we can see. At another time, the cards were circulating freely. Little mention need be made of astrology, since that has long been one of the most popular methods with which the public
has been made familiar. Anyone who practises these methods with this objective in mind will assuredly become aware of the results I have described. And while, it is true, his querents for
divination may receive perfectly good answers to the questions they have asked, departing from his threshold in the spirit of gratitude and wonder, the intuitive development accruing to him will constitute the more important side of that transaction.
It is when we leave the relatively simple realm of divination to approach the obscure subject of Evocation that we enter deep waters. Here it is that most difficulty has arisen. And it is in connection with this phase of Magic that the greatest misunderstanding and fear even has developed.
In order to elucidate the matter, let me again turn to the terminology of modern psychology. The term "complex" has achieved a fairly wide notoriety during the last quarter of a century since the circulation of the theories of Freud and Jung. It means an aggregation or group of ideas in the mind with a strong emotional charge, capable of influencing conscious thought and behaviour. If my interest is Magic, then naturally every item of information acquired, no matter what its nature, is likely to be built by association into that constellation of ideas clustering around my interest--becoming in the course of years a thorough-going complex. Mrs. Jones my dairywoman, because of her professional predilection, will have her complex centering about milk and cows and butter and the price of eggs.
Over and above this definition, however, is the more subtle one of a group of ideas or feelings congregating about a significant or dominant psychic theme, such as sex or the need to overcome inferior feelings, or some psychic wound of childhood, tying or locking up nervous energy. Thus, as a result of repression, we may find a complex of which the possessor is totally unconscious--a complex expressing itself in a sense of insecurity, obsession by morbid unreasonable fears, and persistent anxiety. Moreover, a constellation of feelings and moods and emotional reactions may exist which have become so powerful and yet so obnoxious to reason as to have become completely split off from the main stream of the personality. What modern psychology calls a complex in this sense, the ancient psychology of Magic, which had its own system of classification and nomenclature, named a Spirit. The system of classification was the Qabalistic Sephiros or the ten fundamental categories of thought.
Thus, should we essay translation of terms, the sense of inferiority we might call the spirit of Tipharas, whose name is said to be Soras, inasmuch as the Sun, one of its attributions or associations, is considered the planetary symbol of the individuality. Hence an affliction to the personality, which may be considered a general or rough definition of the inferiority sense, could well be referred to Soras--since the spirit in the case of each Sephirah is considered evil. That complex expressing itself in insecurity is the spirit of Yesod and the Moon, whose name is Chashmodai. This sphere of Yesod represents the astral design or foundation imparting stability and permanence to physical shapes and forms, in a word it is a symbol of security and strength. Should we be confronted with a case where the emotions were split off from consciousness-- this is the influence of the spirit of Hod and Mercury, Taphthartharath. One wallowing in emotional chaos, having refused to develop equally consciousness and the rational faculties, is subject to the spirit of Netsach and Venus, Haniel. A purely destructive or suicidal neurosis which causes one to exhibit the symptomatic tendency deliberately to break things, or to use
them in attack against oneself, is of a martial quality, belonging to Gevurah and Mars, the spirit Samael.
This, naturally, is the subjective point of view. That there is a purely objective occult theory I do not deny, but that cannot be dealt with here.
How, nowadays, do we deal with the psycho-neuroses in the attempt to cure them--to eliminate them from the sphere of the patient's thinking and feeling? Principally by the analytical method. We encourage the patient to narrate freely his life-history, to delineate in detail his early experiences in connection with his father and mother, his reactions to brothers and sisters, to school and playmates and the entire environment. He is asked to dwell particularly on his emotional reaction to these earlier experiences, to re-live them in his imagination, to recount and analyse his feelings towards them. Moreover, his dreams at the time of analysis are subjected to a careful scrutiny. This is necessary because the dream is a spontaneous psychic activity uninterfered with by the waking consciousness. Such activity reveals present-day unconscious reactions to the stimuli of life--reactions which modify, even form his conscious outlook. In this way the patient is enabled to realise objectively the nature of this complex. He must detach himself from it for a short space of time. And this critical objective examination of it, this understanding of its nature and the means whereby it came into being, enables him, not once and for all, but gradually and with the passage of time, to oust it from his ways of thinking.
Magic, however, at one time proceeded according to a slightly different technique. It too realised how devastating were these natural but perverse ways of thinking, and how crippling was the effect they exercised on the personality. Indecision, vacillation, incapacitation of memory, anaesthesia of feeling and sense, compulsions and phobias, besides a host of physical and moral ills, are the resultants of these complexes or spirit-dominants. So completely is the patient at the mercy of obsessing moods as almost to be beside himself, thus suggesting to the vivid imagination of the ancients an actual obsession by some extraneous spirit entity. So, in order to restore man to his former efficiency, or to the standard of normality, these afflictions must be eliminated from consciousness.
As its first step, Magic proceeded to personalise them, to invest them with tangible shape and forrm, and to give them a definite name and quality. It is the nature of the psyche spontaneously to give human characteristics and nomenclature to the contents of its own mind. In doing this, the magical system receives the official blessing, if I may say so, of no less a modern psychological authority than Dr. C. G. Jung. In his commentary to The Secret of the Golden Flower, Jung names these complexes "autonomous partial systems." Referring to these partial systems, he asserts: "Being also constituents of the psychic personality, they necessarily have the character of persons. Such partial-systems appear in mental diseases where there is no psychogenic splitting of the personality (double personality), and also, quite commonly, in mediumistic phenomena." It is, as I have said, a natural tendency of the human mind to personalise these complexes or groupings of special ideas. As another proof of this, we may cite the phenomenon of dreams, in which quite frequently the patient's psychic difficulties or complexes are given symbolically some human or animal form.
Proceeding a step further, the ancient science of Magic postulated that to eliminate this complex it was necessary to render it objective to the patient's or student's consciousness so that he might acquire some recognition of its presence. Whilst these subconscious knots of emotion, or astral spirits, are unknown and uncontrolled, the patient is unable to control them to the best advantage, to examine them thoroughly, to accept the one or to reject the other. First of all, was the hypothesis, they must acquire tangible, objective form before they may be controlled. So long as they remain intangible and amorphous and unperceived by the ego, they cannot adequately be dealt with. By a programme of formal evocation, however, the spirits of the dark underworld, or complexes of ideas inhabiting the deeper strata of unconsciousness, may be evoked from the gloom into visible appearance in the magical triangle of manifestation. Evoked in this technical way, they may be controlled by means of the transcendental symbols and formal processes of Magic, being brought within the dominion of the stimulated will and consciousness of the theurgist. In other words, they are once more assimilated into consciousness. No longer are they independent spirits roaming in the astral world, or partial systems dwelling in the Unconscious, disrupting the individual's conscious life. They are brought back once more into the personality, where they become useful citizens so to speak, integral parts of the psyche, instead of outlaws and gangsters, grievous and dangerous enemies threatening psychic unity and integrity.
How are these evoked? What is the technical process of rendering objective these autonomous partial-systems? Magic parts company here with orthodox psychology. Many months of tedious analysis at enormous financial outlay are required by the present-day psychological method to deal with these problems, and few there be who are strong enough or patient enough to persist. The magical theory prefers a drastic form of emotional and mental excitation by means of a ceremonial technique. During the Evocation ceremony, divine and spirit names are continuously vibrated as part of a lengthy conjuration. Circumambulations are performed from symbolic positions in the temple--these representing different strata of the unconscious, different regions of the psychic world. Breath is inhaled into the lungs, and, rather like the pranayama technique of the Hindu Yogis, manipulated by the imagination in special ways. By means of these exercises, consciousness is stimulated to such a degree as to become opened, despite itself, to the enforced upwelling of the content of the Unconscious. The upwelling is
not haphazard but is definitely controlled and regulated. For the Qabalists were thoroughly familiar with the ideas of suggestion and association, arranging their conjurations so that by means of association of ideas there would be suggested to the psyche the train of ideas required--and only that train. The particular partial-system is then exuded from the sphere of sensation and projected outwards. It embodies itself in so-called astral or etheric substance normally comprising the interior body which serves as the foundation or design of the physical form, and acting as the bridge between the body and the mind, of which it is the vehicle. The astral form now reflecting the partial system projected from the Unconscious, attracts to itself particles of heavy incense burned copiously during the ceremony. Gradually, in the course of the ceremonial, a materialisation is built up which has the shape and character of an autonomous being. It can be spoken to and it can speak. Likewise it can be directed and controlled by the operator of the ceremony. At the conclusion of the operation, it is absorbed deliberately and consciously back into the operator by the usual formula. "And now I say unto thee, depart from hence with the blessing of (the appropriate divine name governing that particular type of complex) upon thee. And let there ever be peace between me and thee. And
be thou ever ready to come and obey my will, whether it be by a ceremony or but by a gesture."
Thus the defect in consciousness caused by the spirit obsession is remedied and, because of the accession to consciousness of the tremendous power and feeling involved in such a repression, the psyche of the operator is stimulated in a special way, according to the nature of the spirit. To recapitulate, the purpose of Evocation is that some portion of the human psyche which has become deficient in a more or less important quality is made intentionally to stand out, as it were. Given body and name by the power of the stimulated will and imagination and exuded astral substance, it is, to continue to use metaphor, specially nourished by the warmth and sustenance of the sun, and given water and food that it may grow and flourish.

The meaning and purpose of life - Updated reflection

The human being of today finds itself as did its ancestors, in a world full of uncertain certainties and more importantly full of mesmerising mystery dependent on how deep one decides to look into the abyss of consciousness
The consciousness functions between 2 worlds , the physical and the psychic
If fully committed to pursuing the meaning and purpose of existence , then both the physical world and the psychic world must be given equal attentions as they are surely interactively entwined at all moments
In the physical world at this time, my question is , Who is the Boss , an individual persona , a collective of personas or something more etheral that influences such personas
In truth , i believe that the answer lies in both the psychic and the physical
Thanks to the internet, it is possible now for many individuals to carry out research at breakneck speed , with the only concern being , how accurate is the researched info , and is it a honey trap or is it the truth
In the physical world , it is possible and more vital than ever, to weed out and expose the political and corporate and banking criminals wherever they may hide and whatever complex layers of protection they have woven around their actions and trails to remain anonymous
One thing is for sure , in the present power dynamic of money and political persuasion, a very small proportion of people presently have great influence over the majority, and these people are highly skilled and accomplished in the art of deception and crowd manipulation and the tool they use for that is a psychic tool

The psychic world is a complete black hole for about 95% of the population , but just as the physical world has rules and regulations and to a certain degree its motions and nuances can be broken down into a technical exposure , so too does this psychic world , which when seen, reveals many of the tools that are used to deceive and manipulate crowds

To date, i have not seen a better more technical breakdown of the art of magic (the psychic influence) as is shown in the excerpt by israel regardie above , covering intuition, divination, invocation , evocation
The elite group of people controlling finance and governments are themselves influenced by psychic motion or belief or dogma
It is also not certain nor uncertain if these people are but willing or even unwilling puppets of some psychic awareness that has particular purpose and destiny for human consciousness

The exact same question can be put to every individual - What is it that is influencing you yourself and why
plus further worthy questions of What is my purpose here ? do i created it ? or is it something more fatalistic ? or a mixture of both
How can i improve my wisdom and quality of existence and understanding of others

All these questions are addressed in the ongoing study of the physical and psychic influences , just as this study itself is constantly threatened by other forces from the physical and psychic realms which ambush and bewilder the consciousness at times almost as if there is some studied intelligent destructive force preying on human consciousness and it is ravenous

The only protection from whatever one believes is going down in this very mysterious experience called existence , is to expand the consciousness of both the physical and psychic worlds , and all the information is out there waiting to enlighten or endarken those that seek it

Gracias Israel Regardie for your own elaboration on existence as you perceived it, for it has certainly fuelled my certainty in certain matters

Some more thoughts on the psycho/physical existence , Just like in the physical world, each persona has to learn to exist and try and master certain arts to acquire control of their destiny and comfort and excel in that realm , so too in the world of the psyche
The imagination is not a constant for any human , it has to be worked at and cultivated or it can just completely disintegrate
These practitioners of magic in its most distilled brilliance were actually aspiring to be masters of their own psyche which was also found to have an interactive effect on others psyches
In the physical world, a person can use conscious will power to become an aspiring master of any pursuit if the application and desire is there to be so, but the final piece of the jigsaw that makes the aspiring master appear as a master is not consciously repetitive
It requires a certain mastery of forces in the physical realm in conjunction with a certain relationship to forces in the psychic realm , this is indisputable in my own understandings / beliefs

Therefore i reckon any person aspiring magician studying the psychic realm of arts which may include , intuition, hunches, divination , invocation, evocation, geomancy, psychoanalysis, hypnosis, mesmerisation, meditation etc etc may find that pure willpower itself can only take a persona so far, because the area of study is more directly in connection with psychic influential types of forces not quite consciously definitive , there is required an ever increasing new type of will power that is a form of super induced hermetically sealed willpower of intention , which rather than immediately taking something or mimics something like in the physical world , magnetically attracts or lures this psychic types of influential forces through a period of time , which in themselves distill into the physical world in manifestations or thoughts ideas as required by the aspiring magician to form their new state of reality , but its always a fine line between their specific actual needs and the unknown forces use of them as a vehicle of its omnipotent expres​sion(if such forces exist and anyone studying this area will feel they do)
In some case it appears that one person may be achieving everything they want , where another person appears to make no progress at all, but that observations in themselves do not form any type of trusted comparison about what is really going on at the deeper psychic progression levels , it seems a world unmapped where every persona can only deal with their own connection and not make any form of presumed certainty about anthers state of connection , which in itself , removes the competitive edge from the psychic area and all the tensions that may create for some egos

A nice physical reality story from yesterday regarding Second sight , i was with a polish gent whom was a friend off a man called W
The man called W was a little stressed out from lifes pressures on the day , and he departed our company at 10.55am
At 11am, the polish gent said to me , I think that W will have a motor accident with a lorry later today
I said , is this a case of second sight , he nodded at me and smiled
Later that day about 3pm i bumped into W again, he was a little stressed out, he'd had an accident with a lorry and damaged his new vehicle
End of physical reality story

Moral of the story - There are unknown forces influencing physical reality that can be accessed by certain people for reasons that don't follow any publicly known sense

So if I understand you right then you think that it is quite possible that someone using magic can get stuck...

well allow me to add my own humble opinion on this issue.

I always felt that there is another realm or dimension existing beyond our ordinary or physical world, and beyond the magical world as well. I don't know how to call it, how about calling it the >miraculous world< !

To me it looks like this: if one is staying in the mode of pure self-serving interest and uses magic to achieve it, then yes, those kind of folks really get stuck on every level ...living in a peronalized bubble of self-delusion that forms around them. Inside all looks hunky dory, but they wont be able to see or receive anything beyond that anymore, slowly killing their ability to be authentic and humane. A bit like how google has set up their "services" for anyone who uses their applications while trying to become the exclusive over-lord-provider for all-things-concerning-the-internet.

If I would have to discribe the miracilous world I would say it's a place (or rather a state of being) were you can know all things without it going to your head thinking how fucking marvelous your own (magical) powers are (a sad by-product for some magicians), as at the same time 'all things' become relative (or one thing alltogether), especially ones selfconceived "identity of self" in the sense of the ideal-self and the masked-self...one is all powerful in the greater sense of belonging to everything, yet one also realizes the inevitable limitations of being "stuck" in a 3-D set-up for pure educational purposes, but most importantly, it requires to change the way one thinks about one self to change outwardly, and that transformation is so much more efficient and effective then any magic of a selfobsessed magician who re-lies on his deceptive abilities alone. It's similar to an electrical circuit...you can create an artificial one and use it, but at the same time you will still not be able to SEE how the energy moves through it. At a certain point in self-realisation the power of magic can lose it's appeal. It does not become a bad thing, ones just sees it for what it really is, and it's limitations as well. But you mentioned intuition and that plays an important role in the miraculous world too. There is no symbolism or ritual in this dimension..only abstract forces of energy which we can learn to communicate with, and I think that this world (reality) is only accessible once somebody starts to look for answers beyond the physical and magical options...

...and I am not talking about a form of escapism, but what is real.

Lovely greetings from the flying shaman ;D

Yes, i was summising that i believe that a person studying the psychic arts can only go so far using willpower in its self serving interest option, because i propose as others have before me, that there is an active relationship that may be established with this psychic realm which requires a certain transcendental development of the ego , not the death of the ego, more an upgraded development of it , which reveals its fruitions in the way it influences others ...indirectly

This is a very nice sharp conclusion of the allegorical platos cave
Essentially, the allegory of the cave tells the story of men who have lived deep within a cave their entire lives. Everything they see and experience is through the projection of shadows of objects on sheets. The story goes on to state that if a man were to be revealed to the real, harsh light of the outside world, rather than the neutralized light that is being intersected by a sheet, his attempts to tell his peers would prove futile. They would eventually kill him.  The men do not realize that what they see is not the full truth, but rather a projection and variation of the truth. What they perceive is what they believe to be real. This story is intended to make humans realize that we are all living in the cave, and none of us fully know the “truth.”

Individuals, mobs and countries act and react from a favoured or conditioned philosophical belief system even if it is predominantly subconscious and consciously inarticulatable for the majority
And the bottom line is that truth as a perceived phenomena is variable for all individuals, mobs and reps of countries dependent upon ones philosophical muscle mass and flexibility or conditioning
The majority of people are conditioned and not able to build muscle mass and flexibility in the realm of philosophical understandings of being

But there is one learned procedure that is the first step to unlocking the philosophically inert mind, and more energy should be concentrated on the importance of this in the schooling years

The word i was looking for and just located is called METACOGNITION otherwise interpreted as "Thinking about Thinking"
It is only when more and more people as a natural state , think more about their own thinking without being ambushed by their own insecure repressed emotional co-inhabitants Very Happy , will understandings between people move to a new enlightened level of appreciations between the developing true selfs

Dear Flames, thank you and I cannot agree more with you..yes all you say is how I feel too.

Oh uhmm, yes Q, I have read a few books from Castaneda..what is it you want to discuss with me about Castaneda?

I can say already that my Mayan, Aztec and Inkan friends (do NOT appreciate these books) regard him as a MISTAKE, they do not like the fact that he actually DID reveal some of the 'Art of Dreaming' and other magic knowledge, to the public....I for one think that it didn't matter if it was revealed or not, as the misuse of this knowledge is only going to *FUCK UP* the person trying to misuse this knowledge for only personal gain ....

Re: Meaning of or in life

Post  KapitanScarlet on Tue 17 Apr 2012, 12:40

Ive noticed that in my existence , i have met or communicated with certain people and often before and always beyond the actuality of the communicating dialogues , and any present or selective judgements on them , there is another more subtle level of recognition and judgement taking place , an attraction or repulsion to something that can't be identified in a physical sense , but can only be sniffed at , through the expressed communications from them and the reflected intuitions after these communications .

I believe this process may fit under the umbrella of soul recognition, the developed soul has a developed radar that recognises other souls that it can either learn from or nourish in a mutual engagement , a process that is carried out through intuition , and this process determines which people one seeks further communication with in a very quality controlled selective manner

The soul - in its own nature - is group conscious and has no individual ambitions or individual interests, and is not at all interested in the aims of its personality. It is the soul which is the initiate. Initiation is a process whereby the spiritual man within the personality becomes aware of himself as the soul, with soul powers, soul relationships, and soul purpose. The moment a man realizes this, even in a small measure, it is the soul group of which he is conscious.

From the above quote, i would split the human into 3 main portions , the soul which has psychic group consciousness , the personality which is conditioned and also adjustable by the spirit which i relate with the willpower . So the personality is conditioned by its society , its spirit of will and most importantly its impressions by other spirits of will
The ego and the id are like affective attenuations of the human personality displayed through expression or impression which affect its soul and spirit and vice versa

The key component is the spirit of will power, for it is this aspect that has the ability to develop the soul and alter the personality

When a human is born, it has a certain level of soul awareness, it has zero spirit of willpower in the sense i am talking off, and it has virtually no personality
In the early days, it will display certain traits which are both a result of the mothers / fathers attentions to it, and its environment , and even i will allow an x factor influence to take into consideration the possibility of re-incarnations
It is at this point that its personality begins to be formed as does its spirit of willpower follow in that development , many many things and circumstances can affect these developments or stagnate them

Now to skip ahead , you then arrive at a sexually matured adult , at this point, i will layout what i believe is the process of advanced evolution in human consciousness
Every adult has consciousness , and personality and a spirit of willpower , or lack of these last 2

The first stage of further development is i believe , self-consciousness defined as the ability to reflect on your own actions , impressions and expressions and perceive faults in them where they occur and then alter your personality or spirit of will power through that process

The second stage of development is to become aware that other people may also have developed self consciousnesses and factor in their well-being as a further burden on the way you exist around these people

So the basic adult has consciousness in soul, personality and spirit of will , but is very limited in their ability to have any influence over these and in fact these people exist in the most gullible phase to be influenced by others , these types will go to war for others in the good cause

The stage 1 self conscious human has the ability to alter their personality and also their spirit of willpower which also raises their soul consciousness, but they also have a danger in that they can become very selfish to a psychopathic level in the extreme , these types could harness others to go to wars for them and are very selective in who they communicate with, the priority being , if it helps them with their selfish needs in existence , so they may gravitate to a certain type of personality or spirit of will to hang out with

The stage 2 types have the stage 1 abilities but also have transcended the self conscious psychopathic phase and in fact look out for others wellbeing , as it interacts with their own and these types have a more developed soul consciousness making them much more selective in who they communicate with , seeking out people that have a particular soul consciousness communicated through intuition

But its not as straightforward as that, because sometimes these stage 2 types may get punished for being too caring about others and neglect themselves etc

So there is no exact road of advanced consciousness development , too many x-factors to consider , therefore it is left to each persona to decide in their own moments of consciousness development what is best for them and even how it affects others around them , and one thing is for sure , they will suffer the consequences of their every decision and sometimes others decisions too , which in turn alters soul consciousness , personality and the their spirit of willpower , and those that they engage with

But one thing comes out of all this tri-activity , the recognition of soul-development in the self and in others, it is this intuition that is a selective process in the choice of hanging with others , and the selection reduces as the soul consciousness raises which introduces new dangers to the soul-wellbeing , because isolation bites, but that intuition is like an inner gps that when not muddied by the disturbance of personalities wants or the disturbance of spirit of will powers demands is a guidance system which sometimes requires to idle because speed is not always of the essence , sometimes waiting is more profitable in the long game .

And when ever any of the components, soul , personality or spirit of will get disturbed , or bloated out of balance , then disturbances do occur which is where lessons are learnt or not so

Interesting model.

I feel that souls nourish themselves on metaphysical things. what a person will allow to happen, or what they must try to make happen.

many criminals do really foolish things, but they are just defiant all the way to the jail cell. the crimes they did were worth it for some reason despite the liklihood of being caught.

it seems like a bad trade. maybe this is what chess is. the game of trading profitably. if you trade your pawn for someones bishop. thats positive gain. your queen for a rook. thats negative gain.

but some people seem to run on different fuel. like myself. im ok at chess the board game, but not very good at the game of life. i make bad trades all the time. i can discipline myself to stick to a strategy in the board game. but in real life. ill speak my mind to the wrong person and get axed. because i felt that that was the right course of action, despite knowing it was a bad strategy.

something being a bad strategy but the right course of action simultaneously happens to me all the time in real life. but in the board game of chess. things are only the right course of action if they are in fact also good strategy. the dillema doesnt occur. this is probably why i like games so much, because i can exercise my intellect strictly for strategy. in real life i get clouded...its like i have to score points for some metaphysical god who is rating me against some other measure

I think you answered your own dilemma above

a persons general behaviour is the true public gauge of what they believe in and they tend to become the characteristics of any higher or lower force influence themselves if they really believe it, makes me wonder how these ethical principles manifest more in some people than others and is that a gauge in the level of their soul development

This is an interesting theory on the brain , touching on the misinterpreted concept of allah from the quran , early mind conditioning , the pineal gland, the fortunate or unfortunate ones, paradise heaven , and the origin of spirit , considering both science and religion in his intimations




Some very thought provoking theories coming from an islamic location , this turkish philosopher may stir some dangerous waters in a positive manner

AHMEDHULUSI Sharing his works for 46 years without any material gain in return, All his books and videos are non-profit and copyright free, you are welcome to download all his works for free

I think this man may be a True Saint Very Happy , great to see this type of info getting out from that area of the globe


In previous writings we explained that as human beings we cannot comprehend the Universe, we can only refer to a universe limited to our perception with our 5 senses.

We also mentioned that there was no such thing as "matter", that we wrongly believe there is "matter" because of misinformation given by our senses. Also, separate devices of perception will perceive separate "matters". Therefore, there are countless "material universes" according to different senses and without the right set of senses to perceive them, these universes become intangible.

Mankind cannot know the universe with the data based on the 5 senses. Everything in the universe is non-substance, waves or entities of different wavelengths that are a part of a quantum structure that can be interpreted in different ways. Therefore, what is mankind in its essence?

There are those who could improve their perception from the level of 5 senses to one of the essence, in other words, they could free their brain from the limitations of the 5 senses'. They ascend from the assumption of matter to the awareness of the Universal Essence using the power of knowledge and intuition. They state that every object has the true Universal Essence in it regardless of the dimensions that it is in determined by its makeup and devices of perception.

Every living thing perceives its own dimension as the only material world, and is unaware of the other countless dimensions due to its limited senses. Since everything in the universe is made up of the same essence which is the universal energy and wisdom, its creative power and the Absolute Consciousness holographically exists in every bit of everything in every dimension of the universe in exactly the same way.

Instead of looking at the universe through the lenses of innumerable species which are just different combinations of the essence, if we can look at it through a lens that has the capacity of all the perception devices, in other terms, if we can look at the universe deriving from the essence to the objects, we will perceive that there is nothing but the One which is alive, infinite, eternal, wise, powerful, the one that leaves no mention of anything else besides itself. At that point you can label it any way you want.

During the last few thousand years, those who reasoned from the essence to sense through tools beyond the 5 senses have reached many of these facts that are now confirmed by recent scientific advancements. However, because of the lack of scientific evidence at the time they had to use similes to explain their conclusions.

They stressed that the universe is made up of one spirit, through which everything exists and continues to exist and that it's a waste to seek this soul outside one's being. Unfortunately, they haven't been understood by the people limited to their 5 senses.

In terms of its essence, the universe is one and whole consciousness and energy; it is infinite and eternal and everything in it exists with the wisdom, power and life of the universe. So then, the only route for us to reach the universal truth is through our own conscious and essence.

In either strategy we use: part to whole or whole to part, the focus is the whole. If you don't know it you can't reach it, if you don't know it you can't derive from it. Therefore, we must understand the whole first.

Matter exists according to the data from the 5 senses. As the senses change, matter will change accordingly. So, the consciousness that determines matter can not be made up of matter.

Consciousness is not matter; within the Universal Essence, it is a wavelength, with a structure and vibration we are yet to determine.

According to this fact, we are a vibration of consciousness; a vibration which exists through and with the Universal Essence, not just a flesh and bone body among billions of other bodies, living in a planet of a star among hundred millions of other stars, in a galaxy among billions of other galaxies, as we would believe if we only relied on our sense of sight.

Everything we call matter due to the limitations of our senses is nothing but light at different vibrations.

However, our being which exists through the universal essence and which possesses the Universal Essence holographically is called the "spirit"

Therefore, for mankind, death as an end is out of the question. The dying person's consciousness has a shift from the material dimension to the holographic/radial body dimension, as the saying goes: passes onto the world of spirits. And there is eternal life for the holographic, light body according to the perception level s/he has reached and the layer s/he is in compliance with that level.

What is Islam? It's certainly not a social or political regime. So what exactly is it?
Islam has been revealed to us for a purpose: for man to identify himself according to the mechanics of existence and the universe, and for man to unveil the prime attributes from his true essence.
The holographic reality states that all that is present throughout the Universe also exists within the human mind. Islam provides the realization that the path for man to reach his creator is through his own mind... Islam provides you with the system and mechanics to reach your creator, to unleash the true potential within.
Islam was revealed to you, FOR you.

Existing translations of the Quran do not reflect its true essence nor its core thought process! Such translations base their premise on the fundamentals of a God beyond, and depict the Purveyor of the word of Allah as a 'messenger' mandated to spread God's message to humanity.

Oneness means there is only Allah and nothing else. It does NOT mean that Allah is the only God. To separate Allah from the cosmos, people and other beings is defined in the Quran as Polytheism.


The Quran emphasizes that all that is perceived and all that is beyond perception exists within the names of Allah. The Quran demonstrates time and time again that we cannot attain all that is referred to by the names of Allah by praying towards the skies. We must turn within, to our depth, our essence!


It is undeniable that we observe the states of hell and heaven during our lifetimes and from within! The facts either makes us feel rejoiced or saddened based on the way we evaluate them in our database. However our happiness and sadness are both none-other than the product of our delusions!

We will perceive our existence in the afterlife as if it were material, just as we perceive matter in our world during our life span. But our perception will be based on the conditions of that dimension and its life forms. Because it is obvious that we will be confronting our delusions during the afterlife just like we do every other night in our dreams; it is stated at the end of the Chapter in the Koran 'the Cow' (Bakara) that "Even though you reveal or conceal segments of data in your consciousness, you will be facing their consequences. The presence of Allah in your existence will assure this."

Everyone will experience and face the results of their dreams emanating from their consciousness. Those that do not manage to purge the data comprising their conscious selves will be left to suffer, as they will not be able to find an 'entity' to complain about their unrealized dreams!

He really is of saintly disposition


WHO IS AHMED HULUSI

Dear Reader,

Many have asked, who is Ahmed Hulusi, what is his mission?

Ahmed Hulusi was born on the 21st of January 1945, in Cerrahpasa, Istanbul, and was named Ahmed by his mother, and Hulusi by his father.

He spent the first 18 years of his life without any prior religious knowledge, believing only in ‘a Creator’. As every time Ahmed Hulusi enquired about religion he was told “do not question, just do as you are told” he lived a seemingly ‘irreligious’ life according to his environment.

Three days after his father’s death, on the 10th of September 1963, unable to decline his mother’s wish, he attended Friday prayer, where he felt an immense inspiration and desire to understand the reality of religon. That same day he decided to always keep in a state of ablution and committed to performing the prescribed daily prayers (salat).

He commenced his religious education by studying the eleven volumes of SahihBukhari, published by the Turkish Directorate for Religious Affairs, the whole of the al-Kutub al-Sittah, and the most authentic Turkish translation of the Quran by the late Elmalili, one of Turkey’s most eminent Quran scholars.

He then spent two years undertaking intense studies of the modern sciences. This exceptionally diligent period of education was then followed by an interval of intensive spiritual diets and retreats, leading him in 1965 to write his first book “Reflections” (Tecelliyat). This book holds an important place for Ahmed Hulusi as it is a conglomeration of his views and theological evaluations at the youthful age of 21.

In 1965 he took a solitary journey, as with all his endeavors, to fulfill his pilgrimage to Mecca (Hajj).

His principle has always been “Do not be a blind follower of anyone! In the light of Muhammad SAW’s teachings, choose and walk your own path in life independently!”

In 1970, when he was working for the Aksam newspaper of Turkey, he began researching the topic of spirits and the evoking of spirits, and published Turkey’s first and only book in this field, “Spirit, Man, Jinn” (RuhInsanCin).

After discovering that the phrases in the Quran “smokeless fire” and “fire that inhabits the pores” are actually references made to “radial energy”, Ahmed Hulusi began to further his research to decipher the teachings of the Quran in the light of science, and shared his findings in his book “The Mysteries of Man” (InsanveSirlari) in 1985.

Continuing to integrate the truths in the Quran with the contemporary sciences, Ahmed Hulusi established his understanding of religion on the foundation of the System and Order denoted by the One named Allah, and committed himself to “reading” the reality disclosed by Muhammad SAW, sharing his findings through his writings and the Internet.

Ahmed Hulusi, who has not only read and studied the aforementioned preeminent collections of Islamic Law, but who has also evaluated the works of many renowned Sufi saints and scholars, synthesizes his findings with scientific truths and presents them as an integrated system of rational reality. Ahmed Hulusi strongly believes that people should be evaluated according to their ideas rather than their personalities, and asserts that Muhammad SAW is the best example of this.

While, simple-minded people spend their lives busying themselves spreading rumors about ‘personalities’, he claims, developed minds engage with data resulting from ideas and thought processes.

In order to refrain from self-promotion, he has not put his surname on any of the books he has written over the last 40 years. He does not claim to be a guru or a teacher to anybody; on the contrary, he chooses to have very little contact with people despite the large demand and interest he receives.

He was forced to put his photos on his books after a few imposters claimed to be “Ahmed Hulusi,” gathering and exploiting large crowds of people in the Anatolia region of Turkey.

Ahmed Hulusi, who always held an authentic press card, has never been occupied in a field of profession other than journalism. He has never been a member of any political, social or religious organization, foundation or establishment of any sort. He has spent his lifetime researching Islamic mysticism, or Sufism, and the modern sciences. He is also the first author to offer all his works, including his entire collection of books, writings, and videoconferences absolutely free, fully downloadable from his Internet site.

All of his views and ideas are offered without any expectation of material gain.

Due to the February 28, 1997, “postmodern coup” in Turkey, Ahmed Hulusi and his wife Cemile moved to London, where they lived for a year, before settling in the USA, where he still resides today.

Ahmed Hulusi who prefers to live a relatively reclusive life in his small town, recommends that people re-evaluate the original teachings of Muhammad SAW and the Quran in the light of science, without depending on an intermediator.

According to Ahmed Hulusi, in respect of the System disclosed by Muhammad SAW, religious “positions” cannot exist. Every individual has the right to, and is obliged to directly interact with the teachings of Allah through Muhammad SAW and shape their lives accordingly.

Ahmed Hulusi claims, the only person one must follow is Muhammad SAW, as everyone else has a consultative role. He believes people are only accountable of the knowledge imparted by Muhammad SAW and the Quran; as all other views are “relative” and non-binding.

Due to this, Ahmed Hulusi does not encourage anyone to become his ‘follower’. He advises people that they should question his teachings and do their own research. He says “don’t believe me, find and verify the truth for yourself!”

Ahmed Hulusi is an Islamic intellectualist who tries to share his thoughts with those who have an intellectual and inquisitive mind!

None of his written, audio or visual works are copyrighted. As long as it remains faithful to the original, all his works can be printed and distributed for free. Just knowing that his books are in the houses of millions of people is a great enough honor for him.

All his works can be accessed and downloaded at the following site:

www.ahmedhulusi.org

Finally… It is important to remember that each person’s understanding is according to his or her knowledge base.

Try and evaluate these books with your own minds.

Be concerned about the writings, not the writer.

Duly examine these truths that are complimentarily shared with you.

I hope these books, that are based on the truths of Allah and the System (sunnatullah) and that have the potential to give direction to one’s eternal life, will open up new horizons for you.


Regards,

Ahmed Hulusi

Priceless Kapis! He gets so animated the more and more he talks, how exciting.
If the brain is such an automated device, is there anything we can actually do?
we re capable of recieiving other forms of data, based on research, our database
has this capacity, if we can hear the Nabi's message if our database permits us to,
if it hasn't become predetermined and fixed about particular topic due to previously
stored info, then we can hear the Nabi talking to us telling us, "your existence transcends
death, you are an immortal being, you are not comprised of this physical body. At some
point the body will stop functioning, but you will continue to exist indefinitely, and continue
your existence in a state of eternal ain or a state of paradise.

I'm so tired I could only watch half or more, I was going in a trance, if my head touches the ground I am out. So I will watch rest for sure later, so interesting.

Okay I'm recharged.LOL
He said the heart neurons can activate and stimulate the pineal gland, which decipher the bigger picture or more complicated quantum energy.
IMO, it's interesting that what can bring a heartbeat back that has stopped is electricity or something similar to it. So if that is the energy for the heart imagine how it can also work on the brain and open gates.

It is undeniable that we observe the states of hell and heaven during our lifetimes and from within! The facts either makes us feel rejoiced or saddened based on the way we evaluate them in our database. However our happiness and sadness are both none-other than the product of our delusions!

I have noticed that whenever a x-flare solar storm takes places I get a major headache for a couple days...

But I don't think it's a negative event.

Who knows...maybe it's grilling some of the darkness (in the sence of "not being able to see") out of our heads...
