The whole Universe is polarized yet functions in complete harmony, we can exactly predict the movements of heavenly bodies far ahead of time, there is very limited space for things of accidental nature. The Ray of Creation is built on the same laws, from the ABSOLUTE down to the suns and moons. What is wrong with humanity that we cannot apply this miraculous pattern of Creation to life on Earth? Why cannot we create Heaven on Earth by using the most basic principle of the Law of Three when it is possible? There is an ancient scientific system, that gives us the tools, how to do it. It is applicable in the East as well as in the West, but it needs both to “materialize” it, the same way as the Earth needs its moon and the moon needs the Earth. and men need women and women need men and all need the sun. That is the missing link, the reconciling force between them, the HOLY GHOST our sacred scriptures talk about. If I apply the same principle of three to our planet and know that the West is mind orientated, the East emotionally orientated and the biggest country connecting them together is half and half, and see that there are the same laws for the whole Ray of Creation, my planetary approach to planetary issues will be very different from those we have had so far, will not?
The enemy is not man, but his sleep. The elephants that are growing in numbers and sizes cannot be taken care of unless certain fundamental issues are understood properly. To understand them properly without understanding the esoteric science connected to them is unrealistic as they are the behind the scene forces that seem to block all logical attempts to deal with the current unsustainable situation. I am re-sending the following text for understanding, that ‚slaughtering of the sheep‘ is not required by Nature anymore. She reached the stage of its own evolution where she needs certain substances obtainable from humans provided they live with an increased level of consciousness but this knowledge has been partially forgotten and hidden from us and our one sided orientation on the intellectual aspect of human nature brought us to the opposite direction of decreasing consciousness which Nature had to adjust to by increasing the number of the population, which, resources wise, might force her to „puff and blow“. Who would suspect her of causing such trend? Can you see how absurd our depopulation policies are from this level of understanding?
„Although Man is part of Organic life on the surface of the Earth, which is created in order to pass influences down from the higher parts of the Ray of Creation to the terminal buds which are the Moons, it is no longer necessary for him at this stage to serve under this slavery. G.said that just at this period it was possible for mankind no longer to be slaves to this pain-factory on the Earth called Organic Life through whose suffering the lower parts of the Ray are nourished, including our Moon which is gradually developing in terms of planetary Time. He said that if Man would only become more conscious his slavery might end, but that owing to habits formed through centuries, habits of feelings, habits of thinking, attitudes, etc. it looked as though Man would continue to serve a purpose that was no longer necessary. „The problem is that Man has reached a stage in which he can become more conscious and if he did so everything would change. But because of traditions, prejudices, because, in short, of his mechanicalness, he cannot reach this point, and so isgoing downhill just at the moment in which he might give a shock to himself and pass intoa new world-order.“ (A good example of habitual thinking, automatically associated with NWO and so called deep state, although the pyramid and the single Eye represent the hierarchy of the Ray of Creation with the Absolute/Creator/GOD as the primary source of energy of everything existing. So ‚metanoia‘* needs to be introduced to humanity for being able to distinguish the higher from the lower.) „Asked whether this development of totalitarianism were a step in the right direction, he said: „No – quite the contrary. Man is simply putting himself under more slavery by these collective movement. The development of consciousness is an individual development. And, as I have said frequently, when War comes Man throws away even the small amount of consciousness that he normally possesses. In fact, he becomes quite insane and does not see his insanity. Consciousness is weighed and measured and there is only a certain quantity of it. But there is enough of this force of consciousness to change everything on the Earth if people would only use it.“ Asked what he thought about the future G.said that people were going in the direction of decreased consciousness and would form either colonies of bees or colonies of ants. He said on another occasion: „Well, you have a choice. Would you be bees or would you be ants?“
* metanoia has been translated in the Bible as repent but in Greek it means new way of thinking
As more and more esoteric materials appear in the academic domains, there is no danger of missing reliable information, but it has mostly historical and geographical aspects. If a newcomer wants to actually understand it, he or she will most probably need an insider to introduce them to the subject as it is a personal experience that makes the verifying of the truthfulness of the presented teaching. Esoteric schools do not wake people up but create an environment in which people can reach higher states of consciousness and increase their level of being. One can read a hundred books about mechanicalness and the inability to “do” and learn and know what it is all about until he gets into the first lesson of sacred dances and has to perform the first exercise. Another problem arises with formatory understanding of everything, not being able to grasp that nothing is static, everything is in movement, mutually interchanging its positions in the processes and I am not talking only about the physiological movements but also about the processes of forces of the whole Ray of Creation. Then there is an aspect of the outside force that has to be applied to a student in order to give a shock to his/her habitual mechanicalness or to hold out a mirror to them. The task of the school is to mercilessly attack vanity, pride, and ego in order to crack the false personality we are all encrusted with. Then the essence behind can be reached and eventually developed together with the true personality around to protect her. The school environment is needed for the protection of students in such processes. The ‘beauties’ get unmasked with painful experiences and in living conditions, it would kill the essence without false or true personality. So the School substitutes true personality while the student is creating his own. The so-called brainwashing happens everywhere. The difference is what gets in after the washing. There are genuine esoteric schools and false esoteric schools. Reading about the esoterics gives a map. Reading the esoterics brings understanding via the heart. If the interest is sincere, it leads one further.
BT, page 328 III.volume, Understanding of justice:
“‘Evidently we men, also like all the existing units of the World, are formed and always consist of the same three independent forces, by means of which the process of reciprocal maintenance of everything existing proceeds; namely, of the following three independent World forces:
“‘The first of these forces constantly arises from the causes which proceed in the Prime Source itself (the ABSOLUTE) and from the pressure of the newly arisen, and issuing from it by momentum, flows out of that Prime Source.
“‘The second World force is what this first force becomes, when, after having spent the momentum which it has received, it strives to reblend with the source of its arising, according to the fundamental World law called “The effects of a cause must always re-enter the cause.”
“‘Both of these forces in the general process of reciprocally maintaining forces are entirely independent, and in their manifestations have always and in everything their own properties and particularities.
“‘The first of these two fundamental forces, namely, that one which for compelling reasons always manifests outside the source of its arising, must constantly involve; and the second one, on the contrary, striving to blend with the cause of its arising, must always and in everything evolve.
“‘Owing to the fact that the first of the mentioned three independent forces arising from vivifying actions proceeding in the very foundation of the cause of everything existing and thus receives in its presence the germ of the possibility of manifesting vivifyingness, it may be considered as “Good,” that is, as a factor for the actualizing of the backward-flowing effects which in relation to this first force can and must be considered as “Evil.”
“‘Moreover, the first of these forces, which is manifested from inevitable and compelling causes arising in the Prime Source itself, can from this point of view be considered as passive. And the second backward-flowing force, because it must constantly resist in order to have the possibility of penetrating backward or at least the possibility of withstanding the opposite-flowing first passive force which has received its momentum from the Prime Source causes, must be regarded as active.
“‘And as for the third independent World force, this force is nothing else but only the result of the clash everywhere and in everything of these two fundamental descending and ascending independent forces.
“‘Although this third independent force is only the result of both first fundamental forces, it is nevertheless the spiritualizing and reconciling source of every World formation.
“‘And it is the spiritualizing source of every World formation because it arises and must exist in them as a presence all the time while the given results exist which arise from various unusual mutual resistances occurring between the said two fundamental forces flowing in entirely opposite directions.’
“And so, my boy, it was in this sense and in this meaning that the words ‘Good’ and ‘Evil’ were first used by this unfortunate Makary Kronbernkzion.” Beelzebub¨s Tales to His Grandson, Understanding of justice vol.3
So the fundamental Newton’s law of action and reaction of karmic nature has also far reaching dimensions of the opposite direction, it is the law which takes us HOME to the cause of our arising…how magnificently designed Law and how insufficiently understood by humanity.
With all respect to the sacredness of the Bible there are certain places where the logical mind of a 21.century citizen wonders about their meanings. The first one starts right at the beginning of Elohim in Genesis – Elohim is “monotheistic in connotation”, but “its grammatical structure” indicates “polytheistic”. That itself presents enormous possibilities of different interpretations and conclusions that a seeker finds among scholars. My knowledge of the Bible is extremely limited so I take it very humbly and I try to understand what I read, taking the Hebrew Interlinear Bible. 1:1 In beginning he created Elohim the Heavens and the air 1:3 And he is saying Elohim he shall become light 1:5 And he is calling Elohim to light 1:9 And he is saying Elohim they shall be flown together the waters from under the heavens…..
For me it feels like a conversation between GOD and Elohim, giving him/them instructions. There is a theory of the Tree of life or the Ray of Creation that explain the laws of transformation of Unity into Plurality, which is closely connected with the Law of Three or the Law of three principles and could explain both conotations of Elohim. Quoting from ISOM:
Every phenomenon, on whatever scale and in whatever world it may take place, from molecular to cosmic phenomena, is the result of the combination or the meeting of three different and opposing forces. Contemporary thought realizes the existence of two forces and the necessity of these two forces for the production of a phenomenon: force and resistance, positive and negative magnetism, positive and negative electricity, male and female cells, red/blue and so on, but they will not take place unless the third neutralizing force is present. If we observe a stoppage in anything, or an endless hesitation at the same place, we can say that, at the given place, the third force is lacking. In trying to understand this it must be remembered at the same time that people cannot observe phenomena as manifestations of three forces because we cannot observe the objective world in our subjective states of consciousness. And in the subjectively observed phenomenal world we see in phenomena only the manifestation of one or two forces. If we could see the manifestation of three forces in every action, we should then see the world as it is (things in themselves)….. But we know that we cannot observe the world as it is and this should help us to understand why we cannot see the third force. The third force is a property of the real world. The subjective or phenomenal world of our observation is only relatively real, at any rate it is not complete. “Returning to the world in which we live we may now say that in the Absolute, as well as in everything else, three forces are active: the active, the passive, and the neutralizing. But since by its very nature everything in the Absolute constitutes one whole the three forces also constitute one whole. The idea of the unity of the three forces in the ABSOLUTE forms the basis of many ancient teachings—consubstantial and indivisible Trinity, Trimurti—Brahma, Vishnu, and Siva, and so on. They separate and unite by their own will and by their own decision, and at the points of junction they create phenomena, or ‘worlds.’ These worlds, created by the will of the ABSOLUTE, depend entirely upon this will in everything that concerns their own existence. In each of these worlds the three forces again act. Since, however, each of these worlds is now not the whole, but only a part, then the three forces in them do not form a single whole. It is now a case of three wills, three consciousnesses, three unities. Each of the three forces contains within it the possibility of all three forces, but at the meeting point of the three forces each of them manifests only one principle—the active, the passive, or the neutralizing. The three forces together form a trinity which produces new phenomena. But this trinity is different, it is not that which was in the ABSOLUTE, where the three forces formed an indivisible whole and possessed one single will and one single consciousness. In the worlds of the second order the three forces are now divided and their meeting points are now of a different nature. In the ABSOLUTE the moment and the point of their meeting is determined by their single will. In the worlds of the second order, where there is no longer a single will but three wills.
The will of the ABSOLUTE creates the worlds of the second order and governs them, but it does not govern their creative work, in which a mechanical element makes its appearance. taken from chapter 4 of Ouspensky’s In Search of the Miraculous -to be read by humanity
If we take GOD himself as the ABSOLUTE, it is clear that HE does not create the world himself, HE delegates the plan of the work by his single will to Elohim, to the second order which he created, composed of three independent wills. So Elohim as a result of HIS Will, divided into three? Could that be why the plural form was used by wise ancestors?
“People have thousands of different ideas about the world but not one general idea which would enable them to understand one another and to determine at once from what point of view they desire to regard the world. “It is impossible to study a system of the universe without studying man. At the same time it is impossible to study man without studying the universe. Man is an image of the world. He was created by the same laws which created the whole of the world. By knowing and understanding himself he will know and understand the whole world, all the laws that create and govern the world. And at the same time by studying the world and the laws that govern the world he will learn and understand the laws that govern him. In this connection some laws are understood and assimilated more easily by studying the objective world, while man can only understand other laws by studying himself. The study of the world and the study of man must therefore run parallel, one helping the other. “It is necessary to understand from the very outset that there are many worlds, and that we live not in one world, but in several worlds. This is not readily understood because in ordinary language the term ‘world’ is generally used in the singular. And if the plural ‘worlds’ is used it is merely to emphasize, as it were, the same idea, or to express the idea of various worlds existing parallel to one another. Our language does not have the idea of worlds contained one within another. And yet the idea that we live in different worlds precisely implies worlds contained one within another to which we stand in different relations. “If we desire an answer to the question what is the world or worlds in which we live, we must first of all ask ourselves what it is that we may call ‘world’ in the most intimate and immediate relation to us., “To this we may answer that we often give the name of ‘world’ to the world of people, to humanity, in which we live, of which we form part. But humanity forms an inseparable part of organic life on earth, therefore it would be right to say that the world nearest to us is organic life on earth, the world of plants, animals, and men.
“But organic life is also in the world. What then is ‘world’ for organic life? “To this we can answer that for organic life our planet the earth is ‘world.’
“But the earth is also in the world. What then is ‘world’ for the earth? ” ‘World’ for the earth is the planetary world of the solar system, of which it forms a part. “What is ‘world’ for all the planets taken together? The sun, or the sphere of the sun’s influence, or the solar system, of which the planets form a part. “For the sun, in its turn, ‘world’ is our world of stars, or the Milky Way, an accumulation of a vast number of solar systems. “Furthermore, from an astronomical point of view, it is quite possible to presume a multitude of worlds existing at enormous distances from one another in the space of ‘all worlds.’ These worlds taken together will be ‘world’ for the Milky Way.
“Further, passing to philosophical conclusions, we may say that ‘all worlds’ must form some, for us, incomprehensible and unknown Whole or One (as an apple is one). This Whole, or One, or All, which may be called the ‘Absolute,’ or the ‘Independent’ because, including everything within itself, it is not dependent upon anything, is ‘world’ for ‘all worlds.’ Logically it is quite possible to think of a state of things where All forms one single Whole. Such a whole will certainly be the Absolute, which means the Independent, because it, that is, the All, is infinite and indivisible. “The Absolute, that is, the state of things when the All constitutes one Whole, is, as it were, the primordial state of things, out of which, by division and differentiation, arises the diversity of the phenomena observed by us.
“Man lives in all these worlds but in different ways. “This means that he is first of all influenced by the nearest world, the one immediate to him, of which he forms a part. Worlds further away also influence man, directly as well as through other intermediate worlds, but their action is diminished in proportion to their remoteness or to the increase in the difference between them and man. As will be seen later, the direct influence of the Absolute does not reach man. But the influence of the next world and the influence of the star world are already perfectly clear in the life of man, although they are certainly unknown to science.
Chapter 4 In Search of the Miraculous P.D.Ouspensky
“In order to understand this and, in general, the nature of knowledge and the nature of being, as well as their interrelation, it is necessary to understand the relation of knowledge and being to ‘understanding.’ “Knowledge is one thing, understanding is another thing. “People often confuse these concepts and do not clearly grasp what is the difference between them. “Knowledge by itself does not give understanding. Nor is understanding increased by an increase of knowledge alone. Understanding depends upon the relation of knowledge to being. Understanding is the resultant of knowledge and being. And knowledge and being must not diverge too far, otherwise understanding will prove to be far removed from either. At the same time the relation of knowledge to being does not change with a mere growth of knowledge. It changes only when being grows simultaneously with knowledge. In other words, understanding grows only with the growth of being.
“In ordinary thinking, people do not distinguish understanding from knowledge. They think that greater understanding depends on greater knowledge. Therefore they accumulate knowledge, or that which they call knowledge, but they do not know how to accumulate understanding and do not bother about it. “And yet a person accustomed to self-observation knows for certain that at different periods of his life he has understood one and the same idea, one and the same thought, in totally different ways. It often seems strange to him that he could have understood so wrongly that which, in his opinion, he now understands rightly. And he realizes, at the same time, that his knowledge has not changed, and that he knew as much about the given subject before as he knows now. What, then, has changed? His being has changed. And once being has changed understanding must change also.
“The difference between knowledge and understanding becomes clear when we realize that knowledge may be the function of one center. Understanding, however, is the function of three centers (meaning moving, emotional and intellectual). Thus the thinking apparatus may know something (instant downloading?). But understanding appears only when a man feels and senses what is connected with it. “We have spoken earlier about mechanicalness. A man cannot say that he understands the idea of mechanicalness if he only knows about it with his mind. He must feel it with his whole mass, with his whole being; then he will understand it. “In the sphere of practical activity people know very well the difference between mere knowledge and understanding. They realize that to know and to know how to do are two different things, and that knowing how to do is not created by knowledge alone. But outside the sphere of practical activity people do not clearly understand what ‘understanding’ means. “As a rule, when people realize that they do not understand a thing they try to find a name for what they do not ‘understand,’ and when they find a name they say they ‘understand.’ But to ‘find a name’ does not mean to ‘understand.’ Unfortunately, people are usually satisfied with names. A man who knows a great many names, that is, a great many words, is deemed to understand a great deal—again excepting, of course, any sphere of practical activity wherein his ignorance very soon becomes evident. “One of the reasons for the divergence between the line of knowledge and the line of being in life, and the lack of understanding which is partly the cause and partly the effect of this divergence, is to be found in the language which people speak. This language is full of wrong concepts, wrong classifications, wrong associations. And the chief thing is that, owing to the essential characteristics of ordinary thinking, that is to say, to its vagueness and inaccuracy, every word can have thousands of different meanings according to the material the speaker has at his disposal and the complex of associations at work in him at the moment. People do not clearly realize to what a degree their language is subjective, that is, what different things each of them says while using the same words. They are not aware that each one of them speaks in a language of his own, understanding other people’s language either vaguely or not at all, and having no idea that each one of them speaks in a language unknown to him. People have a very firm conviction, or belief, that they speak the same language, that they understand one another. Actually this conviction has no foundation whatever. The language in which they speak is adapted to practical life only. People can communicate to one another information of a practical character, but as soon as they pass to a slightly more complex sphere they are immediately lost, and they cease to understand one another, although they are unconscious of it. People imagine that they can, at any rate, understand one another if they try or want to; they imagine that they understand the authors of the books they read and that other people understand them. This also is one of the illusions which people create for themselves and in the midst of which they live. As a matter of fact, no one understands anyone else. Two men can say the same thing with profound conviction but call it by different names, or argue endlessly together without suspecting that they are thinking exactly the same. Or, vice versa, two men can say the same words and imagine that they agree with, and understand, one another, whereas they are actually saying absolutely different things and do not understand one another in the least. “If we take the simplest words that occur constantly in speech and endeavor to analyze the meaning given to them, we shall see at once that, at every moment of his life, every man puts into each word a special meaning which another man can never put into it or suspect. “Let us take the word ‘man’ and imagine a conversation among a group of people in which the word ‘man’ is often heard. Without any exaggeration it can be said that the word ‘man’ will have as many meanings as there are people taking part in the conversation, and that these meanings will have nothing in common. “In pronouncing the word ‘man’ everyone will involuntarily connect with this word the point of view from which he is generally accustomed to regard man, or from which, for some reason or other, he regards him at the moment. One man at the moment may be occupied with the question of the relation between the sexes. Then the word ‘man’ will have no general meaning for him and on hearing this word he will first of all ask himself—Which? man or woman? Another man may be religious and his first question will be—A Christian or not a Christian? The third man may be a doctor and the concept ‘man’ will mean for him a ‘sick man’ or a ‘healthy man,’ and, of course from the point of view of his speciality. A spiritualist will think of ‘man’ from the point of view of his ‘astral body,’ of ‘life on the other side,’ and so on, and he may say, if he is asked, that men are divided into mediums and non-mediums. A naturalist speaking of man will place the center of gravity of his thoughts in the idea of man as a zoological type, that is to say, in speaking of man he will think of the structure of his teeth, his fingers, his facial angle, the distance between the eyes. A lawyer will see in ‘man’ a statistical unit, or a subject for the application of laws, or a potential criminal, or a possible client. A moralist pronouncing the word ‘man’ will invariably introduce into it the idea of good and evil, and so on, and so on. “People do not notice all these contradictions, do not notice that they never understand one another, that they always speak about different things. It is quite clear that, for proper study, for an exact exchange of thoughts, an exact language is necessary, which would make it possible to establish what a man actually means, would include an indication of the point of view from which a given concept is taken and determine the center of gravity of this concept. The idea is perfectly clear and every branch of science endeavors to elaborate and to establish an exact language for itself. But there is no universal language. People continually confuse the languages of different sciences and can never establish their exact correlation. And even in each separate branch of science new terminologies, new nomenclatures, are constantly appearing. And the further it goes the worse it becomes. Misunderstanding grows and increases instead of diminishing and there is every reason to think that it will continue to increase in the same way. And people will understand one another ever less and less. “For exact understanding exact language is necessary. And the study of systems of ancient knowledge begins with the study of a language which will make it possible to establish at once exactly what is being said, from what point of view, and in what connection. This new language contains hardly any new terms or new nomenclature, but it bases the construction of speech upon a new principle, namely, the principle of relativity; that is to say, it introduces relativity into all concepts and thus makes possible an accurate determination of the angle of thought—for what precisely ordinary language lacks are expressions of relativity. “When a man has mastered this language, then, with its help, there can be transmitted and communicated to him a great deal of knowledge and information which cannot be transmitted in ordinary language even by using all possible scientific and philosophical terms. “The fundamental property of the new language is that all ideas in it are concentrated round one idea, that is, they are taken in their mutual relationship from the point of view of one idea. This idea is the idea of evolution. Of course, not evolution in the sense of mechanical evolution, because such an evolution does not exist, but in the sense of a conscious and volitional evolution, which alone is possible. “Everything in the world, from solar systems to man, and from man to atom, either rises or descends, either evolves or degenerates, either develops or decays. Bur nothing evolves mechanically. Only degeneration and destruction proceed mechanically. That which cannot evolve consciously—degenerates. Help from outside is possible only in so far as it is valued and accepted, even if it is only by feeling in the beginning. “The language in which understanding is possible is constructed upon the indication of the relation of the object under examination to the evolution possible for it; upon the indication of its place in the evolutionary ladder. “For this purpose many of our usual ideas are divided according to the steps of this evolution. “Once again let us take the idea man. In the language of which I speak, instead of the word ‘man,’ seven words are used, namely: man number one, man number two, man number three, man number four, man number five, man number six, and man number seven. With these seven ideas people are already able to understand one another when speaking of man. “Man number seven means a man who has reached the full development possible to man and who possesses everything a man can possess, that is, will, consciousness, permanent and unchangeable I, individuality, immortality, and many other properties which, in our blindness and ignorance, we ascribe to ourselves. It is only when to a certain extent we understand man number seven and his properties that we can understand the gradual stages through which we can approach him, that is, understand the process of development possible for us. “Man number six stands very close to man number seven. He differs from man number seven only by the fact that some of his properties have not as yet become permanent. “Man number five is also for us an unattainable standard of man, for it is a man who has reached unity. “Man number four is an intermediate stage. I shall speak of him later. “Man number one, number two, and number three, these are people who constitute mechanical humanity on the same level on which they are born. “Man number one means man in whom the center of gravity of his psychic life lies in the moving center. This is the man of the physical body, the man with whom the moving and the instinctive functions constantly outweigh the emotional and the thinking functions. “Man number two means man on the same level of development, but man in whom the center of gravity of his psychic life lies in the emotional center, that is, man with whom the emotional functions outweigh all others; the man of feeling, the emotional man. “Man number three means man on the same level of development but man in whom the center of gravity of his psychic life lies in the intellectual center, that is, man with whom the thinking functions gain the upper hand over the moving, instinctive, and emotional functions; the man of reason, who goes into everything from theories, from mental considerations. “Every man is born number one, number two, or number three. “Man number four is not born ready-made. He is born one, two, or three, and becomes four only as a result of efforts of a definite character. Man number four is always the product of school work. He can neither be born, nor develop accidentally or as the result of ordinary influences of bringing up, education, and so on. Man number four already stands on a different level to man number one, two, and three; he has a permanent center of gravity which consists in his ideas, in his valuation of the work, and in his relation to the school. In addition his psychic centers have already begun to be balanced; one center in him cannot have such a preponderance over others as is the case with people of the first three categories. He already begins to know himself and begins to know whither he is going. “Man number five has already been crystallized; he cannot change as man number one, two, and three change. But it must be noted that man number five can be the result of right work and he can be the result of wrong work. He can become number five from number four and he can become number five without having been four. And in this case he cannot develop further, cannot become number six and seven. In order to become number six he must again melt his crystallized essence, must intentionally lose his being of man number five. And this can be achieved only through terrible sufferings. Fortunately these cases of wrong development occur very rarely. “The division of man into seven categories, or seven numbers, explains thousands of things which otherwise cannot be understood. This division gives the first conception of relativity as applied to man. Things may be one thing or another thing according to the kind of man from whose point of view, or in relation to whom, they are taken. “In accordance with this, all the inner and all the outer manifestations of man, all that belongs to man, and all that is created by him, is also divided into seven categories. “It can now be said that there exists a knowledge number one, based upon imitation or upon instincts, or learned by heart, crammed or drilled into a man. Number one, if he is man number one in the full sense of the term, learns everything like a parrot or a monkey. “The knowledge of man number two is merely the knowledge of what he likes; what he does not like he does not know. Always and in everything he wants something pleasant. Or, if he is a sick man, he will, on the contrary, know only what he dislikes, what repels him and what evokes in him fear, horror, and loathing. “The knowledge of man number three is knowledge based upon subjectively logical thinking, upon words, upon literal understanding. It is the knowledge of bookworms, of scholastics. Men number three, for example, have counted how many times each letter of the Arabic alphabet is repeated in the Koran of Mohammed, and upon this have based a whole system of interpretation of the. Koran. “The knowledge of man number four is a very different kind of knowledge. It is knowledge which comes from man number five, who in turn receives it from man number six, who has received it from man number seven. But, of course, man number four assimilates of this knowledge only what is possible according to his powers. But, in comparison with man number one, man number two, and man number three, man number four has begun to get free from the subjective elements in his knowledge and to move along the path towards objective knowledge. “The knowledge of man number five is whole, indivisible knowledge. He has now one indivisible I and all his knowledge belongs to this I. He cannot have one I that knows something which another does not know. What he knows, the whole of him knows. His knowledge is nearer to objective knowledge than the knowledge of man number four. “The knowledge of man number six is the complete knowledge possible to man; but it can still be lost. “The knowledge of man number seven is his own knowledge, which cannot be taken away from him; it is the objective and completely practiced knowledge of All. “It is exactly the same with being. There is the being of man number one, that is, the being of a man living by his instincts and his sensations; the being of man number two, that is to say, the being of the sentimental, the emotional man; the being of man number three, that is, the being of the rational, the theoretical man, and so on. It is quite clear why knowledge cannot be far away from being. Man number one, two, or three cannot, by reason of his being, possess the knowledge of man number four, man number five, and higher. Whatever you may give him, he may interpret it in his own way, he will reduce every idea to the level on which he is himself. “The same order of division into seven categories must be applied to everything relating to man. There is art number one, that is the art of man number one, imitative, copying art, or crudely primitive and sensuous art such as the dances and music of savage peoples. There is art number two, sentimental art; art number three, intellectual, invented art; and there must be art number four, number five, and so on. “In exactly the same way there exists the religion of man number one, that is to say, a religion consisting of rites, of external forms, of sacrifices and ceremonies of imposing splendor and brilliance, or, on the contrary, of a gloomy, cruel, and savage character, and so on. There is the religion of man number two; the religion of faith, love, adoration, impulse, enthusiasm, which soon becomes transformed into the religion of persecution, oppression, and extermination of ‘heretics’ and ‘heathens.’ There is the religion of man number three; the intellectual, theoretical religion of proofs and arguments, based upon logical deductions, considerations, and interpretations. Religions number one, number two, and number three are really the only ones we know; all known and existing religions and denominations in the world belong to one of these three categories. What the religion of man number four or the religion of man number five and so on is, we do not know, and we cannot know so long as we remain what we are. “If instead of religion in general we take Christianity, then again there exists a Christianity number one, that is to say, paganism in the guise of Christianity. Christianity number two is an emotional religion, sometimes very pure but without force, sometimes full of bloodshed and horror leading to the Inquisition, to religious wars. Christianity number three, instances of which are afforded by various forms of Protestantism, is based upon dialectic, argument, theories, and so forth. Then there is Christianity number four, of which men number one, number two, and number three have no conception whatever. “In actual fact Christianity number one, number two, and number three is simply external imitation. Only man number four strives to be a Christian and only man number five can actually be a Christian. For to be a Christian means to have the being of a Christian, that is, to live in accordance with Christ’s precepts. “Man number one, number two, and number three cannot live in accordance with Christ’s precepts because with them everything ‘happens.’ Today it is one thing and tomorrow it is quite another thing. Today they are ready to give away their last shirt and tomorrow to tear a man to pieces because he refuses to give up his shirt to them. They are swayed by every chance event. They are not masters of themselves and therefore they cannot decide to be Christians and really be Christians.
“Science, philosophy, and all manifestations of man’s life and activity can be divided in exactly the same way into seven categories and this is why it is so difficult for people to understand one another. In Search of the Miraculous (ISOM) P.D. Ouspensky
Note: As a seeker of the esoteric school, based on scientific facts, not on believes of any kinds, I have been following closely the scientific fields that are most likely to prove the existence of the Ray of Creation. The alphabets have very advanced knowledge of both because of their spying on esoteric schools for hundreds of years. Some knowledge has been clearly misused for power games and political control , for enslaving humanity by psychotronic technologies. In the ancient times the esoteric schools had always trained the future scientists in accordance with the objective laws of the Universe so that they would not harm both humanity and the planet itself. Such wisdom got lost long ago. The current weather control of the entire planet with her nature’s processes are destroying the reciprocal maintenance of the whole ecosystem and the bio- technocratic orientation of humanity only supports our degenerative degress from the Ray of Creation. When re-reading the below aricle I wanted to know what was currently happening on the spiritual/science path in the mainstream. The above article atracted my attention most for certain aspects of universality.

Geoengineering and the Planetary Movement for Mother Earth
The urge to find out what truth is, what God is, is the only real urge, and all other urges are subsidiary. When you throw a stone into still water, it makes expanding circles. The expanding circles are the subsidiary movements, the social reactions, but the real movement is at the centre, which is the movement to find happiness, God, truth….The men who seek out what is truth, what is God—only such men can create a new civilization, a new culture.
Think on These Things, Ch. 11. THE ONLY REAL URGE Krishnamurti
is a magical-sounding formula that evokes a feeling of calm that it is something from nature that one does not interfere with, except during planting and harvesting, and only mechanically. Cherries, plums, apples, strawberries, wine, raspberries, blackberries, currants, nuts have been growing in the family gardens for decades completely independently without any chemicals.But times are changing, and with the development of new disciplines, especially genetics, one note of a sophisticated philosophical mind comes to mind – ‘the greatest crime on humanity is universal literacy’.I do not mean to start a verbally murderous struggle on the social issues and illiteracy of humanity, I just want to make my human colleagues think about the impact of their genetic interventions on nature in the context of history and something called the Ray of Creation. At the present stage, we have a situation in which scientists reject both the theory of intelligent design and the theory of creation, although it is already common from the deciphered human genome of species that we did not originate from natural evolution. One would expect that instead of concentrating on the usual invention of the most destructive viruses, bacteria, and other formations foreign to the human body and mind, scientists would again ask the world the most important question that humanity has been asking since its inception:Who are we, who created us, and for what purpose? And they would acquaint their human family with scientific facts in the context of history and religion.But it didn’t happen. On the contrary, a technocratic movement of transhumanism has emerged, in which the original creation loses its economic value compared to artificial intelligence, and it is said that the only solution to govern this process is by connecting us with it.As a result, thousands of science labs work with the genomes of all external forms and manipulate them to create gmos’, walking in full sun with masks over their faces, eyes fixed on smartphones to locate a person with a viral infection.How does this relate to bio? Well, simply. Bioorganic is bio-organic possibly by being grown in an organic environment, but the problem is that when you cut organic citrus fruit from a supermarket today, you will very often find no seeds but one at the best, which is an unmistakable sign of a genetic defect, either natural one such as in Navel orange or artificially created, for customer convenience or for another reason. In a democracy, one can choose, but one should know that nature in its wisdom uses genetic selection to prevent the degeneration of species. Those who have ceased to fulfill their original function are excluded from the reproductive process. On the contrary, in our considerable ignorance, we have made it a priority and a desirable feature. The problem, however, is that the Ray of Creation, which exists independently of the different stages of consciousness and knowledge of mankind over time, uses the same seed principle of transmitting information to prevent the degeneration of all external forms of its creatures throughout the universe. They have special mechanisms for the absorption of certain cosmic substances from the environment, which the human body can use for mediating certain mental and spiritual processes of man. Genetic interference at this level of cognition is clearly unsustainable.By ignoring the question of the origin and purpose of our existence, we also do not attach any importance to the different vibrations that each organism emits, and it does not seem abnormal to genetically modify the organs in pigs so that they can be transplanted into human organisms. It does not occur to us that this will vibrationally degenerate the highest degree of creation on Earth and at the same time destroy the original function of this animal, which will bring not just suffering upon it, but it will also violate the objective law of equilibration that will transfer the missing function on the shoulders of human beings. Everything is mutually connected. In this sense, literacy takes on a deeper meaning, and so do the missing seeds in fruits and gmo. I understand that when people cannot comprehend what shocks their bodies get with vaccinations they will most likely miss realizing the link between the mortality rates of gmo fed animals and Sagittarians. What I do not understand is how come that the planetary management does allow that when it is a clear indication of sinning against the Holy Spirit. Our planet is under 48 objective laws and we violate many of them, mostly by not being aware of their existence or by refusing to accept them as a limiting factor in our existential expressions. Either we will reconsider our position or we will be forced to do so by Nature.There are over 7 billion of us and each has his/her opinion and force, The fragmentation of both is overwhelming and so is the power of msm on masses. The alternative media could successfully counteract it, but they are in a similar position, having their own specific agendas and often fighting themselves, which means lost force at the end.If I did not have to fight over and over again Pandora since Adam’s time, I would try to unite the forces by adding the missing info from the esoteric domain on the current issues.For example the topic of meat consumption reduction for its negative impact on the environment. It is really an esoteric and health issue, that has been presented to the public as a political, environmental, and human rights question.Before getting emotional about it, everyone should read the Holy Science of Sri Yukteswar, where he leads the reader by observation of teeth, digestive canals, organs of senses, and causes of diseases to the realization that anatomically man is a frugivorous animal. That corresponds with Genesis 1:29.The 4th Way agrees on health issues and adds that higher meat consumption generates willpower in man and is among the causes of wars on our planet, apart from leading to premature death.So of all psyops, coronaviruses, dew, wi-fi, masks, vaccinations, gmo, etc, the meat seems to be in a different category.The meat will still be on the market, but the vegetarian choices might be so tempting that eventually, we will return to the times of our great grandparents, who would consume meat only once a week…..
The principal of a Waldorf school in Semily has been sacked for disregarding the government regulation on compulsory antigen testing in schools. He was dismissed in a unanimous vote by the town council. The school faces a three million crown fine for disregarding the regulation.
According to hygiene officers sent to investigate the case, the school principal allowed untested children into the classroom after their parents refused to have them tested. Some children underwent testing.
The principal of any school should be a human being who is aware of his responsibility to pass to the next generations wisdom, knowledge, and finest thoughts of past ages and to teach them to think independently while observing the objective laws of the universe. He is expected to be strong enough to stand up against the insanity of the world, not to conform to it. If all principals were like Ivan Semecky the governments would be forced to act differently and teach differently, certainly more like Waldorf schools than secular schools, twenty years after the completion human genome project.
Why should we work on our negative emotions? This is a very good question to ask oneself in all inner sincerity, and here the mind will help if the strength of the Work-ideas is beginning to form a new mind which has a small will of its own. The Emotional Centre is the seat of our ordinary will as it is and the negative part of the Emotional Centre is especially so. The small Will from the change in Mental Centre is not sufficient to control the will of the unredeemed Emotional Centre for a long time. The will of the negative part of the Emotional Centre coupled with the will of the physical body forms a very powerful antagonist to the Will that is formed through the Work in the emotional part of the Intellectual Centre. But although we witness constantly our complete failure in controlling our negative emotions, or, let us add, the will of the body, yet if the relationship to the Work and the valuation of its ideas are strong enough, there remains always in spite of constant defeats something in the background which does not consent to all that is going on. I do not think I have mentioned here, in connection with what the Work says that the knowledge of the Work must become emotional, that the first place in which it can become emotional is in the emotional part of the Intellectual Centre. As I said, it is here that the new Will of the Work is formed first of all. The problem then is the negative part of the Emotional Centre itself in which exist ‘I’s that are very powerful and do everything they can to fight every form of belief that we possess in regard to this Work. Now if we had not got Buried Conscience the situation would be hopeless. The negative ‘I’s in the Emotional Centre would always have the victory. The secret is however that in the Emotional Centre there is Buried Conscience and this is awakened by the emotional part of the Intellectual Centre when the ideas of the Work have entered the mind and become emotionally felt—not only as what is Truth but as what is Good. This awakens the Buried Conscience in the Emotional Centre itself. The Work teaches that Buried Conscience exists in everyone, quite apart from acquired Conscience, which is a matter of local upbringing. But for this Buried Conscience and the awakening of it in the Emotional Centre through the new mind and its new Will, we should indeed be in a hopeless position. But fortunately, as it is, every emotional perception of the truth of the Work coming from the Intellectual Centre arouses this Buried Conscience in the Emotional Centre and then the Emotional Centre itself fights against its negative emotions. Now if you do not keep the Work strong in your mind and renew it continually at least once a day, or at least often, if you do not rearrange everything in your mind at intervals so that you are thinking from the channels of the Work and their connections, this awakening of the Buried Conscience begins to cease and then you find yourself alone. When you feel alone like this, you must think of the Work, as, for example, go over what was said at the last meeting and refresh your mind with it. This is a form of Self-Remembering in a practical way and it will send a current of force to Buried Conscience in the Emotional Centre which alone can cast out your devils. It is not as if you do it, nor must you think that you can do it, but if you do what you can do, then something will help you which is not you and which you must never ascribe to yourself. We get into a bad state often because we ascribe everything to ourselves, just as we ascribe our merit to ourselves, just as we ascribe our good to ourselves, which means of course that we inevitably ascribe our evil to ourselves. One must ascribe neither good nor evil to oneself—otherwise one stands in the way of one’s development. The Work is an instrument first of all—a mental instrument—which must be used to put our thoughts in the right order, to get things straight, and if we do this with the memory of our past experience in the Work, this effort to re-arrange internally will stimulate this Buried Conscience in the Emotional Centre which can fight all negative emotions and cast out every devil in us. You cannot overcome a negative emotion directly. It will only get stronger as a rule. But you can through your mind, through arranging the Work in your mind, touch the emotional part of the Intellectual Centre, which in turn awakens the Buried Conscience which will attack by itself the negative emotions. The power of Buried Conscience derives from the Higher Emotional Centre. You must remember that the Work teaches that Man was once in touch with Higher Centres but went to sleep. He once knew what to do directly but now, in this state of sleep, he can only get to where he was by indirect methods. All that is left now is change of mind. Change of mind starts the whole possible recovery. That is why Christ taught always μετάνοια change of mind, as the first thing—not repentance, but change of mind. Unless the mind changes, whereby the attitudes change, everyone will always be just as he is, whatever effort he makes in the way of starvation, self-denial, and so on. With the same attitude, a man will always remain the same. As long as a man thinks in the same habitual way, he will remain the same. The Work can actually teach a man to think in a new way, I repeat, about himself, about others, and about the meaning of life.
With this change of mind his attitudes will inevitably change. If your attitudes have not changed then you will not change and you can never change. If, for example, your attitude is that you are a fully conscious man and that you are a unity and you have a permanent Real ‘I’ and an inflexible will and that you can do and so on, then these attitudes and this way of thinking will fix you always in the same psychological place as you are in and no new development is possible. But if your attitudes change through new thinking, through the ideas of the Work, from esoteric teaching, then you can change, because you will begin to arouse Buried Conscience which cannot work in you as long as you have all these false notions about yourself, about others, and about life, and ascribe all to yourself. It is exactly this new thinking, this that the Work can give us, that when emotionally felt arouses into activity the Buried Conscience which then begins to help. So you will see how important it is to keep the Work mentally living in oneself not only by constant outer reminders of it but by your own deeper inner thinking because, as you know, this Work is a rope let down that you have to jump to catch hold of.

“In school teaching a man is given examples of both descending (creative) and ascending (or evolutionar) cosmic octaves. Western thought, knowing neither about octaves nor about the law of three, confuses the ascending and descending lines and does not understand that the line of evolution is opposed to the line of creation, that is to say, it goes against it as though against the stream.” ISOM P.D.Ouspensky p.134 Not everyone wants to go the way of evolution for the attraction of the other, but everyone should be aware of the existence of both and their differences and impacts on our lives, our planet and the whole Solar system.
“Birdlip, December 2, 1944 LAW OF FATE AND LAW OF ACCIDENT INTRODUCTORY NOTE ON THE WORK TEACHING ABOUT LAWS The Work teaches that the Absolute is under one law—the law of its own Will. From it proceeds creation by the first trinity of forces which create the first order of worlds under 3 laws. This is sometimes called World 3. In tracing the Ray of Creation to our Earth we have next our Galaxy under 6 laws, our Solar System as a minute part of our Galaxy under 12 laws, our Planetary System as a whole under 24 laws, our Earth as part of the planets under 48, and our Moon as part of our Earth under 96. You must understand that the part is always under more laws than the whole. It is necessary to see this clearly by finding your own examples—for example, the soldier is under the laws of the Captain, the Captain under the laws of the Colonel, etc., and the whole army under the law of the General. Does Man put himself under more laws in war? Does the general movement of things tend to-day to put Man under more and more laws? Will this make it possible for Man to reach his Essence more easily or will Man tend to become more of a machine, more mechanical? Are ants and bees under more laws than we are? Have they any individual chance of development? The more laws Man puts himself under the more can it be said he is under the Law of Accident. In all that follows you must clearly grasp that, Personality is under more laws than Essence. Essence is under planetary laws at the note Fa in the Ray of Creation, or rather the note Si in the Side-Octave, both notes being at the same level in scale. Behind Essence lies Real ‘I’ which is under 12 laws and corresponds diagrammatically to the level represented by the Sun. That is, Essence is above Personality in the Scale of Being, and Real ‘I’ is above Essence. Psychologically, Essence is internal to Personality and Real ‘I’ internal to Essence. What is more internal is higher in scale. So you can either say internal or higher, both terms having the same meaning”. excerpts from Psychological Commentaries Dr. M. Nicoll
I expect all sane minds to understand how we put ourselves under more and more unnecessary laws.
A note to a stranger: pls read it 3 times, first as your newspapers, secondly vocalized and thirdly with mentating over it. G.I.G. Pls. do not get discouraged by the unknown expressions if unknown . Their understanding comes with feeling the knowledge (in time). D.P.
……”I must say that the three-brained beings of the planet Mars knew our genuine nature from the very beginning, and also the true reason why we were compelled to dwell on their planet. .”They were not like the three-brained beings of your planet who never knew anything and never even suspected who we were and why we existed on their planet.
“………the indubitable conviction that the results ensuing from the abnormal existence of the three-brained beings of your planet had already begun to act harmfully also on the ordinary existence of the three-brained beings arising and existing on the planet Mars, in respect of their ‘potency’ to perfect themselves as is proper to all three-brained beings.
“‘What I thus constated aroused in me a subjective interest which served as the source for the engendering in my presence of the requisite impulse for the thorough cognizance of the cause of this fact, and from then on I began to pay attention both to myself as well as to what proceeded around me and to seek out the causes for it; and after one “Rkhee” I became convinced beyond doubt that this undesirable state proceeded with me each time, on the day when our large “Lifechakan” was in action.
“‘It was just this fact which I then first constated which was the cause that I have, since then, become seriously interested in this omnipresent cosmic substance and deeply absorbed in the study of its details.
“‘As a result, from the very beginning of my subsequent experimental elucidations, I came to possess an immeasurable number of every kind of proof for the elucidation, both for myself and for others, of the fact that the Omnipresent substance Okidanokh is such a particle of the common presence of the atmosphere of our planet, and evidently of the presence of the atmosphere of other planets, as takes part both in the arising of every planetary and surplanetary formation – among which of course there is also the “Hraprkhabeekhrokhnian” part of every being – as well as in the maintenance of their existence.
[45. Extraction of Electricity, p. 1157]
“‘Upon my further experimental elucidations I also became aware, beyond all doubt, that although our solar system like all the other solar systems of the Great Universe has its own Ansanbaluiazar, and each planet with its atmosphere is a special place of concentration of one or another class of cosmic substances of the given “Systematic-Ansanbaluiazar,’ yet nevertheless the cosmic-substance Okidanokh is an indispensable and predominant part of the presence of each planet.
“‘And later, also thanks to my experiments, it became clear to me that this cosmic substance is, owing to the common universal equilibrium, concentrated in every system in a strictly corresponding proportion and is distributed also in a strictly definite proportion between the atmosphere of each planet of the given solar system, and that when this universal substance is used up by accident or design in any one place of atmospheric space, it must without fail be replenished for the equilibrium of its common proportionalness in the atmosphere, and this proceeds by its flowing in from other places, and thereby this balancing transposition of Okidanokh must proceed not only from one space to another in the atmosphere of any planet, but also from the atmosphere of one planet to the atmosphere of another planet, if in this other planet for some reason or other more than its established norm is used up.
“‘Finally, I still further very definitely and from every aspect made clear to my reason and proved to others that the Omnipresent cosmic-substance Okidanokh present in our atmosphere and which is constantly being replenished, is for the common presence of our planet not only necessary and most important for every kind of arising and maintaining of existence, but also that the essence of every “relatively independent” intraplanetary and surplanetary formation as well as of the beings of every system of brains and external coating depends on this substance, and likewise that the possibilities for three-brained beings to perfect themselves and ultimately to blend with the Prime Cause of everything existing depends exclusively also on it.
[45. Extraction of Electricity, p. 1158]
“‘I repeat, as a result of all my experimental elucidations, I very definitely cognized for myself and acquired indubitable data for the possibilities of proving from every aspect to all those around me, beings like myself, that the destruction in the presences of the planet and of its atmosphere, of the Omnipresent cosmic-substance Okidanokh is almost equivalent to the conscious destruction of all the labors and results of the First-Sacred-Cause of everything that exists.’
“With these words, captivated by the theme of this exposition, my dear godson, the young high-spirited Gornahoor Rakhoorkh, finished his talk.
“In the middle of Gornahoor Rakhoorkh’s explanations concerning the mentioned properties of the Omnipresent cosmic-substance Okidanokh and the inevitable consequences of its extraction and destruction from the common presence of your planet, the suspicion arose in me, and in my memory there gradually began to be restored all kinds of general pictures – previously perceived during my personal sojourn among your favorites just during the period of my close observations on their existence from the planet Mars of the impressions from their ordinary being-existence – of how they at different periods repeatedly obtained this substance or it’s separate parts from the nature of their planet and used them for their different, naively egoistic aims.
[45. Extraction of Electricity, p. 1159]
“And when during the further explanations of Gornahoor Rakhoorkh, I, by association, remembered the request of the great Toof-Nef-Tef of the planet Mars, I then with all my being became aware without any doubt of all the maleficent consequences of just this manifestation of the three-brained beings of your planet.
“They named the totality or the separate parts of this substance, sacred just for them, differently at different periods, and at the present time they name the result of the blending and the mutual destruction of two parts of this omnipresent substance ‘electricity.’ excertpts from Beelzebub’s Tales G.I.G.
“The next idea which it is necessary to master is the materiality of the universe which is taken in the form of the ray of creation. Everything in this universe can be weighed and measured. The Absolute is as material, as weighable and measurable, as the moon, or as man. If the Absolute is God it means that God can be weighed and measured, resolved into component elements, ‘calculated,’ and expressed in the form of a definite formula. “But the concept ‘materiality’ is as relative as everything else. If we recall how the concept ‘man’ and all that refers to him—good, evil, truth, falsehood, and so on—is divided into different categories (‘man number one,’ ‘man number two,’ and so on, it will be easy for us to understand that the concept ‘world,’ and everything that refers to the world, is also divided into different categories. The ray of creation establishes seven planes in the world, seven worlds one within another. Everything that refers to the world is also divided into seven categories, one category within another. The materiality of the Absolute is a materiality of an order different from that of ‘all worlds.’ The materiality of ‘all worlds’ is of an order different from the materiality of ‘all suns.’ The materiality of ‘all suns’ is of an order different from the materiality of our sun. The materiality of our sun is of an order different from the materiality of ‘all planets.’ The materiality of ‘all planets’ is of an order different from the materiality of the earth, and the materiality of the earth is of an order different from the materiality of the moon. This idea is at first difficult to grasp. People are accustomed to think that matter is everywhere the same. The whole of physics, of astrophysics, of chemistry, such methods as spectroanalysis, and so on, are based upon this assumption. And it is true that matter is the same, but materiality is different. And different degrees of materiality depend directly upon the qualities and properties of the energy manifested at a given point. “Matter or substance necessarily presupposes the existence of force or energy. This does not mean that a dualistic conception of the world is necessary. The concepts of matter and force are as relative as everything else. In the Absolute, where all is one, matter and force are also one. But in this connection matter and force are not taken as real principles of the world in itself, but as properties or characteristics of the phenomenal world observed by us. To begin the study of the universe it is sufficient to have an elementary idea of matter and energy, such as we get by immediate observation through our organs of sense. The ‘constant’ is taken as material, as matter, and ‘changes’ in the state of the ‘constant,’ or of matter, are called manifestations of force or energy. All these changes can be regarded as the result of vibrations or undulatory motions which begin in the center, that is, in the Absolute, and go in all directions, crossing one another, colliding, and merging together, until they stop altogether at the end of the ray of creation. “From this point of view, then, the world consists of vibrations and matter, or of matter in a state of vibration, of vibrating matter. The rate of vibration is in inverse ratio to the density of matter. “In the Absolute vibrations are the most rapid and matter is the least dense. In the next world vibrations are slower and matter denser; and further on matter is still more dense and vibrations correspondingly slower. ” ‘Matter’ may be regarded as consisting of ‘atoms.’ Atoms in this connection are taken also as the result of the final division of matter. In every order of matter they are simply certain small particles of the given matter which are indivisible only on the given plane. The atoms of the Absolute alone are really indivisible, the atom of the next plane, that is, of world 3, consists of three atoms of the Absolute or, in other words, it is three times bigger and three times heavier, and its movements are correspondingly slower. The atom of world 6 consists of six atoms of the Absolute merged together, as it were, and forming one atom. Its movements are correspondingly slower. The atom of the next world consists of twelve primordial particles, and of the next worlds, of twenty-four, forty-eight, and ninety-six. The atom of world 96 is of an enormous size compared with the atom of world 1; its movements are correspondingly slower, and the matter which is made up of such atoms is correspondingly denser.
“The seven worlds of the ray of creation represent seven orders of materiality. The materiality of the moon is different from the materiality of the earth; the materiality of the earth is different from the materiality of the planetary world; the materiality of the planetary world is different from the materiality of the sun, and so on. “Thus instead of one concept of matter we have seven kinds of matter, but our ordinary conception of materiality only with difficulty embraces the materiality of worlds 96 and 48. The matter of world 24 is much too rarefied to be regarded as matter from the scientific point of view of our physics and chemistry; such matter is practically hypothetical. The still finer matter of world 12 has, for ordinary investigation, no characteristics of materiality at all. All these matters belonging to the various orders of the universe are not separated into layers but are intermixed, or, rather, they interpenetrate one another. We can get an idea of similar interpenetration of matters of different densities from the penetration of one matter by another matter of different densities known to us. A piece of wood may be saturated with water, water may in its turn be filled with gas. Exactly the same relation between different kinds of matter may be observed in the whole of the universe: the finer matters permeate the coarser ones. “Matter that possesses characteristics of materiality comprehensible to us is divided for us into several states according to its density: solid, liquid, gaseous; further gradations of matter are: radiant energy, that is, electricity, light, magnetism; and so on. But on every plane, that is to say, in every order of materiality, similar relations and divisions of the various states of a given matter may be found; but, as has been already said, matter of a higher plane is not material at all for the lower planes. “All the matter of the world that surrounds us, the food that we eat, the water that we drink, the air that we breathe, the stones that our houses are built of, our own bodies—everything is permeated by all the matters that exist in the universe. There is no need to study or investigate the sun in order to discover the matter of the solar world: this matter exists in ourselves and is the result of the division of our atoms. In the same way we have in us the matter of all other worlds. Man is, in the full sense of the term, a ‘miniature universe’; in him are all the matters of which the universe consists; the same forces, the same laws that govern the life of the universe, operate in him; therefore in studying man we can study the whole world, just as in studying the world we can study man. “But a complete parallel between man and the world can only be drawn if we take ‘man’ in the full sense of the word, that is, a man whose inherent powers are developed. An undeveloped man, a man who has not completed the course of his evolution, cannot be taken as a complete picture or plan of the universe—he is an unfinished world. “As has been said already, the study of oneself must go side by side with the study of the fundamental laws of the universe. The laws are the same everywhere and on all planes. But the very same laws manifesting themselves in different worlds, that is, under different conditions, produce different phenomena. The study of the relation of laws to the planes upon which they are manifested brings us to the study of relativity. “The idea of relativity occupies a very important place in this teaching, and, later on, we shall return to it. But before anything else it is necessary to understand the relativity of each thing and of each manifestation according to the place it occupies in the cosmic order. “We are on the earth and we depend entirely upon the laws that are operating on the earth. The earth is a very bad place from the cosmic point of view—it is like the most remote part of northern Siberia, very far from everywhere, it is cold, life is very hard. Everything that in another place either comes by itself or is easily obtained, is here acquired only by hard labor; everything must be fought for both in life and in the work. In life it still happens sometimes that a man gets a legacy and afterwards lives without doing anything. But such a thing does not happen in the work. All are equal and all are equally beggars. “Returning to the law of three, one must learn to find the manifestations of this law in everything we do and in everything we study. The application of this law in any sphere at once reveals much that is new, much that we did not see before. Take chemistry, for instance. Ordinary science does not know of the law of three and it studies matter without taking into consideration its cosmic properties. But besides ordinary chemistry there exists another, a special chemistry, or alchemy if you like, which studies matter taking into consideration its cosmic properties. As has been said before, the cosmic properties of each substance are determined first by its place, and secondly by the force which is acting through it at the given moment. Even in the same place the nature of a given substance undergoes a great change dependent upon the force which is being manifested through it. Each substance can be the conductor of any one of the three forces and, in accordance with this, it can be active, passive, or neutralizing. And it can be neither the first, nor the second, nor the third, if no force is manifesting through it at the given moment or if it is taken without relation to the manifestation of forces. In this way every substance appears, as it were, in four different aspects or states. In this connection it must be noted that when we speak of matter we do not speak of chemical elements. The special chemistry of which I speak looks upon every substance having a separate function, even the most complex, as an element. In this way only is it possible to study the cosmic properties of matter, because all complex compounds have their own cosmic purpose and significance. From this point of view an atom of a given substance is the smallest amount of the given substance which retains all its chemical, physical, and cosmic properties. Consequently the size of the ‘atom’ of different substances is not the same. And in some cases an ‘atom’ may be a particle even visible to the naked eye. “The four aspects or states of every substance have definite names. “When a substance is the conductor of the first or the active force, it is called ‘carbon,’ and, like the carbon of chemistry, it is designated by the letter C. “When a substance is the conductor of the second or the passive force, it is called ‘oxygen,’ and, like the oxygen of chemistry, it is designated by the letter 0. “When a substance is the conductor of the third or neutralizing force, it is called ‘nitrogen,’ and, like the nitrogen of chemistry, it is designated by the letter N. “When a substance is taken without relation to the force manifesting itself through it, it is called ‘hydrogen,’ and, like the hydrogen of chemistry, it is designated by the letter H. “The active, the passive, and the neutralizing forces are designated by the figures 1, 2, 3, and the substances by the letters C, 0, N, and H. These designations must be understood.” “Do these four elements correspond to the old four alchemical elements, fire, air, water, earth?” asked one of us. “Yes, they do correspond,” said G., “but we will use these. You will understand why afterwards.” excerpts from ISOM of P.D. Ouspensky
“The idea of the ray of creation and its growth from the Absolute contradicts the general views of our day. “According to this idea the moon is still an unborn planet, one that is, so to speak, being born. It is becoming warm gradually and in time (given a favorable development of the ray of creation) it will become like the earth and have a satellite of its own, a new moon. A new link will have been added to the ray of creation. The earth, too, is not getting colder, it is getting warmer, and may in time become like the sun. We observe such a process for instance in the system of Jupiter, which is a sun for its satellites. “Summing up all that has been said before about the ray of creation, from world 1 down to world 96, it must be added that the figures by which worlds are designated indicate the number of forces, or orders of laws, which govern the worlds in question. In the Absolute there is only one force and only one law—the single and independent will of the Absolute. In the next world there are three forces or three orders of laws. In the next there are six orders of laws; in the following one, twelve; and so on. In our world, that is, the earth, forty-eight orders of laws are operating to which we are subject and by which our whole life is governed. If we lived on the moon we should be subject to ninety-six orders of laws, that is, our life and activity would be still more mechanical and we should not have the possibilities of escape from mechanicalness that we now have. “As has been said already, the will of the Absolute is only manifested in the immediate world created by it within itself, that is, in world 3; the immediate will of the Absolute does not reach world 6 and is mani- fested in it only in the form of mechanical laws. Further on, in worlds 12, 24, 48, and 96, the will of the Absolute has less and less possibility of manifesting itself. This means that in world 3 the Absolute creates, as it were, a general plan of all the rest of the universe, which is then further developed mechanically. The will of the Absolute cannot manifest itself in subsequent worlds apart from this plan, and, in manifesting itself in accordance with this plan, it takes the form of mechanical laws. This means that if the Absolute wanted to manifest its will, say, in our world, in opposition to the mechanical laws in operation there, it would then have to destroy all the worlds intermediate between itself and our world. “The idea of a miracle in the sense of a violation of laws by the will which made them is not only contrary to common sense but to the very idea of will itself. A ‘miracle’ can only be a manifestation of laws which are unknown to men or rarely met with. A ‘miracle’ is the manifestation in this world of the laws of another world. “On the earth we are very far removed from the will of the Absolute; we are separated from it by forty-eight orders of mechanical laws. If we could free ourselves from one half of these laws, we should find ourselves subject to only twentyfour orders of laws, that is, to the laws of the planetary world, and then we should be one stage nearer to the Absolute and its will. If we could then free ourselves from one half of these laws, we should be subject to the laws of the sun (twelve laws) and consequently one stage nearer still to the Absolute. If, again, we could free ourselves from half of these laws, we should be subject to the laws of the starry world and separated by only one stage from the immediate will of the Absolute. “And the possibility for man thus gradually to free himself from mechanical laws exists.” excerpts from ISOM P.D. Ouspensky
“G. spoke of the planets and the moon as living beings, having definite ages, a definite period of life and possibilities of development and transition to other planes of being. From what he said it appeared that the moon was not a “dead planet,” as is usually accepted, but, on the contrary, a “planet in birth”; a planet at the very initial stages of its development which had not yet reached “the degree of intelligence possessed by the earth,” as he expressed it. “But the moon is growing and developing,” said G., “and some time, it will, possibly, attain the same level as the earth. Then, near it, a new moon will appear and the earth will become their sun. At one time the sun was like the earth and the earth like the moon. And earlier still the sun was like the moon.” This attracted my attention at once. Nothing had ever seemed to me more artificial, unreliable, and dogmatic than all the usual theories of the origin of planets and solar systems, beginning with the Kant-Laplace theory down to the very latest, with all their additions and variations. The “general public” considers these theories, or at any rate the last one known to it, to be scientific and proven. But in actual fact there is of course nothing less scientific and less proven than these theories. Therefore the fact that G.’s system accepted an altogether different theory, an organic theory having its origin in entirely new principles and showing a different universal order, appeared to me very interesting and important. “In what relation does the intelligence of the earth stand to the intelligence of the sun?” I asked. “The intelligence of the sun is divine,” said G. “But the earth can become the same; only, of course, it is not guaranteed and the earth may die having attained nothing.” “Upon what does this depend?” I asked. G.’s answer was very vague. “There is a definite period,” he said, “for a certain thing to be done. If, by a certain time, what ought to be done has not been done, the earth may perish without having attained what it could have attained.” “Is this period known?” I asked. “It is known,” said G. “But it would be no advantage whatever for people to know it. It would even be worse. Some would believe it, others would not believe it, yet others would demand proofs. Afterwards they would begin to break one another’s heads. Everything ends this way with people.” excertps from ISOM P.D. Ouspensky
“In right knowledge the study of man must proceed on parallel lines with the study of the world, and the study of the world must run parallel with the study of man. Laws are everywhere the same, in the world as well as in man. Having mastered the principles of any one law we must look for its manifestation in the world and in man simultaneously. Moreover, some laws are more easily observed in the world, others are more easily observed in man. Therefore in certain cases it is better to begin with the world and then to pass on to man, and in other cases it is better to begin with man and then to pass on to the world. “This parallel study of the world and of man shows the student the fundamental unity of everything and helps him to find analogies in phenomena of different orders. “The number of fundamental laws which govern all processes both in the world and in man is very small. Different numerical combinations of a few elementary forces create all the seeming variety of phenomena. “In order to understand the mechanics of the universe it is necessary to resolve complex phenomena into these elementary forces. “The first fundamental law of the universe is the law of three forces, or three principles, or, as it is often called, the law of three. According to this law every action, every phenomenon in all worlds without exception, is the result of a simultaneous action of three forces—the positive, the negative, and the neutralizing. Of this we have already spoken, and in future we will return to this law with every new line of study. “The next fundamental law of the universe is the law of seven or the law of octaves. “In order to understand the meaning of this law it is necessary to regard the universe as consisting of vibrations. These vibrations proceed in all kinds, aspects, and densities of the matter which constitutes the universe, from the finest to the coarsest; they issue from various sources and proceed in various directions, crossing one another, colliding, strengthening, weakening, arresting one another, and so on. “In this connection according to the usual views accepted in the West, vibrations are continuous. This means that vibrations are usually regarded as proceeding uninterruptedly, ascending or descending so long as there continues to act the force of the original impulse which caused the vibration and which overcomes the resistance of the medium in which the vibrations proceed. When the force of the impulse becomes exhausted and the resistance of the medium gains the upper hand the vibrations naturally die down and stop. But until this moment is reached, that is, until the beginning of the natural weakening, the vibrations develop uniformly and gradually, and, in the absence of resistance, can even be endless. So that one of the fundamental propositions of our physics is the continuity of vibrations, although this has never been precisely formulated because it has never been opposed. In certain of the newest theories this proposition is beginning to be shaken. Nevertheless physics is still very far from a correct view on the nature of vibrations, or what corresponds to our conception of vibrations, in the real world. “In this instance the view of ancient knowledge is opposed to that of contemporary science because at the base of the understanding of vibrations ancient knowledge places the principle of the discontinuity of vibrations. “The principle of the discontinuity of vibration means the definite and necessary characteristic of all vibrations in nature, whether ascending or descending, to develop not uniformly but with periodical accelerations and retardations. This principle can be formulated still more precisely if we say that the force of the original impulse in vibrations does not act uniformly but, as it were, becomes alternately stronger and weaker. The force of the impulse acts without changing its nature and vibrations develop in a regular way only for a certain time which is determined by the nature of the impulse, the medium, the conditions, and so forth. But at a certain moment a kind of change takes place in it and the vibrations, so to speak, cease to obey it and for a short time they slow down and to a certain extent change their nature or direction; for example, ascending vibrations at a certain moment begin to ascend more slowly, and descending vibrations begin to descend more slowly. After this temporary retardation, both in ascending and descending, the vibrations again enter the former channel and for a certain time ascend or descend uniformly up to a certain moment when a check in their development again takes place. In this connection it is significant that the periods of uniform action of the momentum are not equal and that the moments of retardation of the vibrations are not symmetrical. One period is shorter, the other is longer. “In order to determine these moments of retardation, or rather, the checks in the ascent and descent of vibrations, the lines of development of vibrations are divided into periods corresponding to the doubling or the halving of the number of vibrations in a given space of time. “Let us imagine a line of increasing vibrations. Let us take them at the moment when they are vibrating at the rate of one thousand a second. After a certain time the number of vibrations is doubled, that is, reaches two thousand. 1000 2000 |—————————————————————| FIG. 7 “It has been found and established that in this interval of vibrations, between the given number of vibrations and a number twice as large, there are two places where a retardation in the increase of vibrations takes place. One is near the beginning but not at the beginning itself. The other occurs almost at the end. “Approximately: FIG. 8 1000|————————|———————————|——|2000 “The laws which govern the retardation or the deflection of vibrations from their primary direction were known to ancient science. These laws were duly incorporated into a particular formula or diagram which has been preserved up to our times. In this formula the period in which vibrations are doubled was divided into eight unequal steps corresponding to the rate of increase in the vibrations. The eighth step repeats the first step with double the number of vibrations. This period of the doubling of the vibrations, or the line of the development of vibrations, between a given number of vibrations and double that number, is called an octave, that is to say, composed of eight. “The principle of dividing into eight unequal parts the period, in which the vibrations are doubled, is based upon the observation of the non-uniform increase of vibrations in the entire octave, and separate ‘steps’ of the octave show acceleration and retardation at different moments of its development. “In the guise of this formula ideas of the octave have been handed down from teacher to pupil, from one school to another. In very remote times one of these schools found that it was possible to apply this formula to music. In this way was obtained the seven-tone musical scale which was known in the most distant antiquity, then forgotten, and then discovered or ‘found’ again. “The seven-tone scale is the formula of a cosmic law which was worked out by ancient schools and applied to music. At the same time, how- ever, if we study the manifestations of the law of octaves in vibrations of other kinds we shall see that the laws are everywhere the same, and that light, heat, chemical, magnetic, and other vibrations are subject to the same laws as sound vibrations. For instance, the light scale is known to physics; in chemistry the periodic system of the elements is without doubt closely connected with the principle of octaves although this connection is still not fully clear to science. “A study of the structure of the seven-tone musical scale gives a very good foundation for understanding the cosmic law of octaves. “Let us again take the ascending octave, that is, the octave in which the frequency of vibrations increases. Let us suppose that this octave begins with one thousand vibrations a second. Let us designate these thousand vibrations by the note do. Vibrations are growing, that is, their frequency is increasing. At the point where they reach two thousand vibrations a second there will be a second do, that is, the do of the next octave. do ———————————————————————— do FIG. 9 “The period between one do and the next, that is, an octave, is divided into seven unequal parts because the frequency of vibrations does not increase uniformly. , do, re, mi, fa, sol, la, si , do, FIG. 10 “The ratio of the pitch of the notes, or of the frequency of vibrations will be as follows: “If we take do as 1 then re will be 9/8, mi 5/4, fa 4/3, sol 3/2, la 3/2, si 15/8, and do 2. 1 9/8 5/4 4/3 3/2 5/3 15/8 2
do re mi fa sol la si do FIG. 11 “The differences in the acceleration or increase in the notes or the difference in tone will be as follows: between do and re 9/8 : 1 = 9/8 between re and mi 5/4 : 9/8 = 10/9 between mi and fa 4/3 : 5/4 = 16/15 increase retarded between fa and sol 3/2 : 4/3 = 9/8 between sol and la 5/3 : 3/2 = 10/9 between la and si 15/8 : 5/3 == 9/8 between si and do 2 : 15/8 = 16/15 increase again retarded “The differences in the notes or the differences in the pitch of the notes are called intervals. We see that there are three kinds of intervals in the octave: 9/8, 10/9, and 16/15, which in whole numbers correspond to 405, 400, and 384. The smallest interval 16/15 occurs between mi and fa and between si and do. These are precisely the places of retardation in the octave. “In relation to the musical (seven-tone) scale it is generally considered (theoretically) that there are two semitones between each two notes, with the exception of the intervals mi-fa and si-do, which have only one semitone and in which one semitone is regarded as being left out. “In this manner twenty notes are obtained, eight of which are fundamental: do, re, mi, fa, sol, la, si, do and twelve intermediate: two between each of the following two notes: do-re re-mi fa-sol sol-la la-si and one between each of the following two notes: mi-fa si-do “But in practice, that is, in music, instead of twelve intermediate semitones only five are taken, that is one semitone between: do-re re-mi fa-sol sol-la la-si “Between mi and fa and between si and do the semitone is not taken at all. “In this way the structure of the musical seven-tone scale gives a scheme of the cosmic law of ‘intervals,’ or absent semitones. In this respect when octaves are spoken of in a ‘cosmic’ or a ‘mechanical’ sense, only those intervals between mi-fa and si-do are called ‘intervals’ “If we grasp its full meaning the law of octaves gives us an entirely new explanation of the whole of life, of the progress and development of phenomena on all planes of the universe observed by us. This law explains why there are no straight lines in nature and also why we can neither think nor do, why everything with us is thought, why everything happens with us and happens usually in a way opposed to what we want or expect. All this is the clear and direct effect of the ‘intervals,’ or retardations in the development of vibrations. “What precisely does happen at the moment of the retardation of vibrations? A deviation from the original direction takes place. The octave begins in the direction shown by the arrow:
“This law shows why straight lines never occur in our activities, why, having begun to do one thing, we in fact constantly do something entirely different, often the opposite of the first, although we do not notice this and continue to think that we are doing the same thing that we began to do. “All this and many other things can only be explained with the help of the law of octaves together with an understanding of the role and significance of ‘intervals’ which cause the line of the development of force constantly to change, to go in a broken line, to turn round, to become its ‘own opposite’ and so on. “Such a course of things, that is, a change of direction, we can observe in everything. After a certain period of energetic activity or strong emotion or a right understanding a reaction comes, work becomes tedious and tiring; moments of fatigue and indifference enter into feeling; instead of right thinking a search for compromises begins; suppression, evasion of difficult problems. But the line continues to develop though now not in the same direction as at the beginning. Work becomes mechanical, feeling becomes weaker and weaker, descends to the level of the common events of the day; thought becomes dogmatic, literal. Everything proceeds in this way for a certain time, then again there is reaction, again a stop, again a deviation. The development of the force may continue but the work which was begun with great zeal and enthusiasm has become an obligatory and useless formality; a number of entirely foreign elements have entered into feeling—considering, vexation, irritation, hostility; thought goes round in a circle, repeating what was known before, and the way out which had been found becomes more and more lost. “The same thing happens in all spheres of human activity. In literature, science, art, philosophy, religion, in individual and above all in social and political life, we can observe how the line of the development of forces deviates from its original direction and goes, after a certain time, in a diametrically opposite direction, still preserving its former name. A study of history from this point of view shows the most astonishing facts which mechanical humanity is far from desiring to notice. Perhaps the most interesting examples of such change of direction in the line of the development of forces can be found in the history of religion, particularly in the history of Christianity if it is studied dispassionately. Think how many turns the line of development of forces must have taken to come from the Gospel preaching of love to the Inquisition; or to go from the ascetics of the early centuries studying esoteric Christianity to the scholastics who calculated how many angels could be placed on the point of a needle. “The law of octaves explains many phenomena in our lives which are incomprehensible. “First is the principle of the deviation of forces. “Second is the fact that nothing in the world stays in the same place, or remains what it was, everything moves, everything is going somewhere, is changing, and inevitably either develops or goes down, weakens or degenerates, that is to say, it moves along either an ascending or a descending line of octaves. “And third, that in the actual development itself of both ascending and descending octaves, fluctuations, rises and falls are constantly taking place. “We have spoken so far chiefly about the discontinuity of vibrations and about the deviation of forces. We must now clearly grasp two other principles: the inevitability of either ascent or descent in every line of development of forces, and also the periodic fluctuations,that is, rises and falls, in every line whether ascending or descending. “Nothing can develop by staying on one level. Ascent or descent is the inevitable cosmic condition of any action. We neither understand nor see what is going on around and within us, either because we do not allow for the inevitability of descent when there is no ascent, or because we take descent to be ascent. These are two of the fundamental causes of our self-deception. We do not see the first one because we continually think that things can remain for a long time at the same level; and we do not see the second because ascents where we see them are in fact impossible, as impossible as it is to increase consciousness by mechanical means. “Having learned to distinguish ascending and descending octaves in life we must learn to distinguish ascent and descent within the octaves themselves. Whatever sphere of our life we take we can see that nothing can ever remain level and constant; everywhere and in everything proceeds the swinging of the pendulum, everywhere and in everything the waves rise and fall. Our energy in one or another direction which suddenly increases and afterwards just as suddenly weakens; our moods which ‘become better’ or ‘become worse’ without any visible reason; our feelings, our desires, our intentions, our decisions—all from time to time pass through periods of ascent or descent, become stronger or weaker. “And there are perhaps a hundred pendulums moving here and there in man. These ascents and descents, these wave-like fluctuations of moods, thought, feelings, energy, determination, are periods of the development of forces between ‘intervals’ in the octaves as well as the ‘intervals’ themselves. “Upon the law of octaves in its three principal manifestations depend many phenomena both of a psychic nature as well as those immediately connected with our life. Upon the law of octaves depends the imperfection and the incompleteness of our knowledge in all spheres without exception, chiefly because we always begin in one direction and afterwards without noticing it proceed in another. “As has been said already, .the law of octaves in all its manifestations was known to ancient knowledge. “Even our division of time, that is, the days of the week into work days and Sundays, is connected with the same properties and inner conditions of our activity which depend upon the general law. The Biblical myth of the creation of the world in six days and of the seventh day in which God rested from his labors is also an expression of the law of octaves or an indication of it, though an incomplete one. “Observations based on an understanding of the law of octaves show that ‘vibrations’ may develop in different ways. In interrupted octaves they merely begin and fall, are drowned or swallowed up by other, stronger, vibrations which intersect them or which go in an opposite direction. In octaves which deviate from the original direction the vibrations change their nature and give results opposite to those which might have been expected at the beginning. “And it is only in octaves of a cosmic order, both descending and ascending, that vibrations develop in a consecutive and orderly way, following the same direction in which they started. “Further observations show that a right and consistent development of octaves, although rare, can be observed in all the occasions of life and in the activity of nature and even in human activity. “The right development of these octaves is based on what looks an accident. It sometimes happens that octaves going parallel to the given octave, intersecting or meeting it, in some way or another fill up its ‘intervals’ and make it possible for the vibrations of the given octave to develop in freedom and without checks. Observation of such rightly developing octaves establishes the fact that if at the necessary moment, that is, at the moment when the given octave passes through an ‘interval,’ there enters into it an ‘additional shock’ which corresponds in force and character, it will develop further without hindrance along the original direction, neither losing anything nor changing its nature. “In such cases there is an essential difference between ascending and descending octaves. “In an ascending octave the first ‘interval’ comes between mi and fa. If corresponding additional energy enters at this point the octave will develop without hindrance to si, but between si and do it needs a much stronger ‘additional shock’ for its right development than between mi and fa, because the vibrations of the octave at this point are of a considerably higher pitch and to overcome a check in the development of the octave a greater intensity is needed. “In a descending octave, on the other hand, the greatest ‘interval’ occurs at the very beginning of the octave, immediately after the first do and the material for filling it is very often found either in do itself or in the lateral vibrations evoked by do. For this reason a descending octave develops much more easily than an ascending octave and in passing beyond si it reaches fa without hindrance; here an ‘additional shock’ is neces- sary, though considerably less strong than the first ‘shock’ between do and si. “In the big cosmic octave, which reaches us in the form of the ray of creation, we can see the first complete example of the law of octaves. The ray of creation begins with the Absolute. The Absolute is the All. The All, possessing full unity, full will, and full consciousness, creates worlds within itself, in this way beginning the descending world octave. The Absolute is the do of this octave. The worlds which the Absolute creates in itself are si. The ‘interval’ between do and si in this case is filled by the will of the Absolute. The process of creation is developed further by the force of the original impulse and an ‘additional shock.’ Si passes into la which for us is our star world, the Milky Way. La passes into sol—our sun, the solar system. Sol passes into fa—the planetary world. And here between the planetary world as a whole and our earth occurs an ‘interval.’ This means that the planetary radiations carrying various influences to the earth are not able to reach it, or, to speak more correctly, they are not received, the earth reflects them. In order to fill the ‘interval’ at this point of the ray of creation a special apparatus is created for receiving and transmitting the influences coming from the planets. This apparatus is organic life on earth. Organic life transmits to the earth all the influences intended for it and makes possible the further development and growth of the earth, mi of the cosmic octave, and then of the moon or re, after which follows another do—Nothing. Between All and Nothing passes the ray of creation. “You know the prayer ‘Holy God, Holy the Firm, Holy the Immortal’? This prayer comes from ancient knowledge. Holy God means the Absolute or All. Holy the Firm also means the Absolute or Nothing. Holy the Immortal signifies that which is between them, that is, the six notes of the ray of creation, with organic life. All three taken together make one. This is the coexistent and indivisible Trinity.”
“We must now dwell on the idea of the ‘additional shocks’ which make it possible for the lines of forces to reach a projected aim. As I said before, shocks may occur accidentally. Accident is of course a very uncertain thing. But those lines of development of forces which are straightened out by accident, and which man can sometimes see, or suppose, or expect, create in him more than anything else the illusion of straight lines. That is to say, he thinks that straight lines are the rule and broken and interrupted lines the exception. This in its turn creates in him the illusion that it is possible to do; possible to attain a projected aim. In reality a man can do nothing. If by accident his activity gives a result, even though it resembles only in appearance or in name the original aim, a man assures himself and others that he has attained the aim which he set before him- self and that anyone else would also be able to attain his aim, and others believe him. In reality this is illusion. A man can win at roulette. But this would be accident. Attaining an aim which one has set before oneself in life or in any particular sphere of human activity is just the same kind of accident. The only difference is that in regard to roulette a man at least knows for certain whether he has lost or won on each separate occasion, that is, on each separate stake. But in the activities of his life, particularly with activities of the kind that many people are concerned in and when years pass between the beginning of something and its result, a man can very easily deceive himself and take the result ‘obtained’ as the result desired, that is, believe that he has won when on the whole he has lost. “The greatest insult for a ‘man-machine’ is to tell him that he can do nothing, can attain nothing, that he can never move towards any aim whatever and that in striving towards one he will inevitably create another. Actually of course it cannot be otherwise. The ‘man-machine’ is in the power of accident. His activities may fall by accident into some sort of channel which has been created by cosmic or mechanical forces and they may by accident move along this channel for a certain time, giving the illusion that aims of some kind are being attained. Such accidental correspondence of results with the aims we have set before us or the attainment of aims in small things which can have no consequences creates in mechanical man the conviction that he is able to attain any aim, ‘is able to conquer nature’ as it is called, is able to ‘arrange the whole of his life,’ and so on. “As a matter of fact he is of course unable to do anything of the kind because not only has he no control over things outside himself but he has no control even over things within himself. This last must be very clearly understood and assimilated; at the same time it must be understood that control over things begins with control over things in ourselves, with control over ourselves. A man who cannot control himself, or the course of things within himself, can control nothing. “In what way can control be attained? “The technical part of this is explained by the law of octaves. Octaves can develop consecutively and continuously in the desired direction if ‘additional shocks’ enter them at the moments necessary, that is, at the moments when vibrations slow down. If ‘additional shocks’ do not enter at the necessary moments octaves change their direction. To entertain hopes of accidental ‘shocks’ coming from somewhere by themselves at the moments necessary is of course out of the question. There remains for a man the choice either of finding a direction for his activities which corresponds to the mechanical line of events of a given moment, in other words of ‘going where the wind blows’ or ‘swimming with the stream,’ even if this contradicts his inner inclinations, convictions, and sympathies, or of reconciling himself to the failure of everything he starts out to do; or he can learn to recognize the moments of the ‘intervals’ in all lines of his activity and learn to create the ‘additional shocks,’ in other words, learn to apply to his own activities the method which cosmic forces make use of in creating ‘additional shocks’ at the moments necessary. “The possibility of artificial, that is, specially created, ‘additional shocks’ gives a practical meaning to the study of the law of octaves and makes this study obligatory and necessary if a man desires to step out of the role of passive spectator of that which is happening to him and around him. “The ‘man-machine’ can do nothing. To him and around him everything happens. In order to do it is necessary to know the law of octaves, to know the moments of the ‘intervals’ and be able to create necessary ‘additional shocks.’ “It is only possible to learn this in a school, that is to say, in a rightly organized school which follows all esoteric traditions. Without the help of a school a man by himself can never understand the law of octaves, the points of the ‘intervals,’ and the order of creating ‘shocks.’ He cannot understand because certain conditions are necessary for this purpose, and these conditions can only be created in a school which is itself created upon these principles. “How a school is created on the principles of the law of octaves will be explained in due course. And this in its turn will explain to you one aspect of the union of the law of seven with the law of three. In the meantime it can be said only that in school teaching, a man is given examples of both descending (creative) and ascending (or evolutionary) cosmic octaves. Western thought, knowing neither about octaves nor about the law of three, confuses the ascending and the descending lines and does not understand that the line of evolution is opposed to the line’ of creation, that is to say, it goes against it as though against the stream. “In the study of the law of octaves it must be remembered that octaves in their relation to each other are divided into fundamental and subordinate. The fundamental octave can be likened to the trunk of a tree giving off branches of lateral octaves. The seven fundamental notes of the octave and the two ‘intervals,’ the bearers of new directions, give altogether nine links of a chain, three groups of three links each. “The fundamental octaves are connected with the secondary or subordinate octaves in a certain definite way. Out of the subordinate octaves of the first order come the subordinate octaves of the second order, and so on. The construction of octaves can be compared with the construction of a tree. From the straight basic trunk there come out boughs on all sides which divide in their turn and pass into branches- becoming smaller and smaller, and finally are covered with leaves. The same process goes on in the construction of the leaves, in the formation of the veins, the serrations, and so on. “Like everything in nature the human body which represents a certain whole bears both within and without the same correlations. According to the number of the notes of the octave and its ‘intervals,’ the human body has nine basic measurements expressed by the numbers of a definite measure. In individuals these numbers of course differ widely but within certain definite limits. These nine basic measurements, giving a full octave of the first order, by combining in a certain definite way pass into measurements of subordinate octaves, which give rise in their turn to other subordinate octaves, and so on. In this way it is possible to obtain the measurements of any member or any part of the human body as they are all in a definite relationship one to another.” The law of octaves naturally gave rise to a great many talks in our group and to much perplexity. G. warned us all the time against too much theorizing. “You must understand and feel this law in yourselves,” he said. “Only then will you see it outside yourselves.” This of course is true. But the difficulty was not only in this. Merely a “technical” understanding of the law of octaves requires a lot of time. And we returned to it continually, sometimes making unexpected discoveries, sometimes again losing what had seemed to us already established. It is now difficult to convey how at different periods now one and now another idea became the center of gravity in our work, attracted the greatest attention, gave rise to most talks. The idea of the law of octaves became in its way a permanent center of gravity. We returned to it on every occasion; we spoke of it and discussed its various aspects at every meeting until we began gradually to think of everything from the point of view of this idea.” excerpts from ISOM P.D. Ouspensky
what is sleep? Sleep resembles death. Ah, why then dost thou not work in such wise that after death thou mayest retain a resemblance to perfect life, rather than during life make thyself like the hapless dead by sleeping?
You must be informed about many of the underlying issues behind the current state of planetary affairs but maybe you are not aware of denying forces of the 4th Industrial revolution that literally enslave the planet* and have already hypnotized humanity with psychotronic technologies, where a man stops to be in control of his/her own body and mind. I am speaking from my own experience and the social credit system is certainly aimed to be officially implemented on the western populations as well. It would be justified by the safety of citizens in the new age of electricities, where smart technologies have been utilized even by the private sector as directed energy weapons and an amazingly high number of people have no ethical barriers against using them for remote electronic hunting of their own fellow human beings. The attached patent of covid19** clearly suggests the direction life on earth has taken and perhaps its detailed descriptions of the intended tasks are explaining to us what we are dealing with. The technology is even able to recognize the moments of our divided attention (self-realization, self-remembering, self-awareness,…. the signs of the third state of consciousness). It can manipulate such states by remotely extracting bodily energy, so practically it can degrade humanity to a lower level of being.
It is the secular science that dictates the future of humanity, despite its inability to see the Universe as an interconnected hierarchy with the “Central reference system” built on the principles of reciprocal maintenance. The idea of transhumanism in its actual materialization could never be realized were it otherwise.
There are two scientific proves that the Universe is spiritual and that Genesis is correct:
The first one comes from the attached Tabula Smaragdina of Hermes Trismegistus***and from Beelzebub’s Tales **** – the Earth’s mystery of light and darkness. Anyone who pays attention to both will solve the puzzle. The second is given to us by the Human Genome Project with its “complete genetic code for building a human being”. The primates came to existence by the accidental crossing of humans with the quadruplex species (also known over 100 years via Mr. Gurdjieff). The subjective theory of natural evolution is obviously untenable for this age where quantum physics can already explain the scientific foundations of what we call spiritual.
The fact that the Universe is spiritual and humanity has not been informed about it have had many negative effects on the ecosystem, science, military, politics, economies, technology, culture, existential well-being of man, and on religions themselves.
By observing the current planetary “live exercise” under the martial law, with the intention to vaccinate the whole planet with a new type of DNA vaccines that permanently affect people’s genetic codes without knowing if it does not jeopardize man’s ability to create his/her so-called “higher being bodies ” and those of the subsequent generations, and either digitalize or even encrypt their bodies with DNA technologies*****, ought not the churches use vigorously their bells?
Most politicians have no scientific knowledge of the matters beyond the world physically manifested. Religions have to confront the world of secular science with the basic questions: Who we are, Who created us for what reasons, What is the main purpose of our existence, Where consciousness comes from, What happens to us after death? If they cannot OBJECTIVELY answer these simple questions, how come they are let to shape the future history of 80% of the Earth’s population who know? It is a duty of all who know to unite their forces and bring down the “wall of separation” between state powers and religion and replace it by the union of state powers with the religious/spiritual wisdom based science. Prophecies are just warnings about the unconscious forces, they cannot govern the conscious ones.
“If we have some crystals of salt andput them into a glass of water, they will quickly dissolve.. …But there comes a moment when the solution is saturated. Then the salt no longer dissolves and the crystals remain whole at the bottom. It is the same with the human organism. The material crystallized after such a surfeit takes the form of the man’s physical body, is a copy of it and may be separated from the physical body. Each body has a different life and each is subject to different orders of laws. The new, or second, body is called the astral body. In relation to the physical body it is what is called the soul. Science is already coming to the possibility of establishing experimentally the existence of the second body. (almost 100 years ago)
The matter of this astral body, in its vibrations, corresponds to matter of the sun’s emanations and is, theoretically, indestructible within the confines of the earth and its atmosphere.
Although in itself it is also divided into three principles, taken as a whole it represents the active force, the positive principle in relation to the passive, negative principle which is the physical body. The neutralizing principle between them is a special magnetism, which is not possessed by everyone but without which it is impossible for the second body to be master of the first. Further development is possible. A man with two bodies can acquire new properties by the crystallization of new substances. A third body is then formed within the second, which is sometimes called the mental body. The third body will then be the active principle; the second, the neutralizing; and the first, the physical body, the passive principle. But this is still not soul in the real meaning of the word. Only the fourth body completes all the development possible for man in the earthly conditions of his existence. It is immortal within the limits of the solar system. Real will belongs to this body. It is the real “I,” the soul of man, the master.” Excerpts from VRW G.I.G.
“If anyone desires to know and understand more than he knows and understands, he must remember that this new knowledge and new understanding will come through the emotional centre and not through the mental centre.” “But study; study everything. Know yourself, then humanity, then the planet. Study forty-eight hours a day.” (from M. Anderson)
Our planet, which is the mother of all of us, clearly indicates that our current way of life and the system of values we profess is unsustainable because it contradicts the objective laws of the Universe, under which, like the whole universe, we fall. Even with the naked eye, it is possible to observe air pollution by geoengineering operations, which together with military psychtronic systems are used to control the weather on a global scale and interfere with the planet’s natural electromagnetic field, with which all nature, including man, is harmoniously connected. The moment we change it, we disrupt the wellbeing of all living things without realizing the real causes. A detailed study of esoteric sources of the Fourth Way shows that electricity as one of the three sacred substances contained in the atmosphere participates in the endless processes of origin, maintenance and cessation of life on Earth, and the violation of its even distribution throughout the atmosphere nota bene its depletion directly influences psyche of all external forms of life, including man. In such a situation, humanity ceases to fulfill its functions for which it was created and degenerative tendencies occur, both physical and intellecual and mental. With almost 8 billion people choosing the path of life and intelligence in a digital and mechanized way, completely dependent on this sacred substance, maintaining a strictly measured amount of electricity is the main principle that humanity must obey so that it does not have to be lawfully rebalanced not only between continents, but also between the planets of the entire solar system, with which we are interconnected. Let the continent of Atlantis be our point of reference.
Another pitfall is atheistic science, which has already reached the border of the visible and invisible world, still in complete ignorance of the purpose of life on Earth and the true function of man, and the result of its research is the most destructive and enslaving weapons system of directed energies that attack remotely and invisibly man in the most sensitive parts of his body and mind, reserved only for him and his Creator. A quote “one has nowhere to lay one’s head” comes across one’s mind.
The field of genetic biology has become a direct threat to all species, because the decipherment of the genomes of all physiological forms of existence has become the impetus for headless experimentation with them, without knowledge of the laws of the world of electricity and divine magnetism that determine them. The key to the symbol of Noah’s Ark.
The secularization of science as a result of Darwin’s never-confirmed theory of natural evolution affects scientifically, politically, socially, and culturally virtually the entire planet, including countries of the East that are traditionally spiritually oriented, such as India.
Under these conditions, it is completely unpredictable what scientists around the planet will discover and with what form of new destruction they can come up with.
Think tanks, dealing with futuristic perspectives, solve the situation by gradually digitalizing the bodies of humanity of the entire planet, through which it can be totally controlled, as is clear from my case. The social credit, introduced in China, is already functional, the Western world is psychologically preparing for it, so far conditionally in case of sudden necessity.
The problem of electricity & resources some think tanks summed up in the equation 15% depopulation = 10 years 50% of GDP.
However, nowhere is mentioned man’s connection with ABSOLUTE, nor is the Fourth Industrial Revolution opposed by the Fourth Way, which clearly states that the number of humanities on the planet is not random at all, but is controlled by Nature, which is responsible for transforming energies for specific cosmic purposes. Man, as the only creature on this planet, has the privilege of creating vibrations either in a quantitative way just like the rest of nature, or in a qualitative way, given the way of life he leads. The first – quantitative way – leads to an increase in the planet’s populations, degradation of vibrations from their radiation and shortening of life. The second – qualitative way – leads to a decrease in the population, to an increase in vibrations from its radiation and to prolong life. The population graph is a good indicator of either way.
It would be very appropriate for planetary eugenics and think tanks to know about this esoteric information. It would then be easier to apply essential knowledge to the life of the entire planet, to introduce to humanity the self-governing system instead of social credit system in order to make the necessary transition from the war mentality of Dark Ages to the Age of peace and friendship, in which we learn to operate the fundamental forces of the Universe non-destructively and direct our scientific resources to the higher dimensions of the cosmic worlds of electricity & magnetism and their laws. about which we do not yet know enough but they are indicated in the Conscious Scriptures of the East and West. (-LUKE 22:51, Quantum field in Vedas)
But for this it is absolutely necessary that the CREATOR be returned to humanity and that the scientific, rational path of the creation of the world be explained to people.
If humanity remains connected to artificial intelligence and strives to achieve immortality on the line of time without being aware of its connection to ABSOLUTE, we cannot miss the predictions from Revelations.
This information, given in the most basic form, is I think necessary for a more comprehensive view of the current situation and for constructive communication between the various ‘true information & knowledge‘ centers that have to be synchronized for common understanding that will allow to unite the opposite forces into one, powerful enough to solve the planetary problems, overreaching the competences of individual states, no matter how powerful they are.
Summarizing of the few aspects of the existential knowledge available to us from the ancestors as the means to communicate more easily. Because of the history of violence and hatred, connected with the low level of out vibrations, the question of Jewish, Muslim and Christian faith is traditionally brought up to the surface and the 21th century should deal with it on a deeper level because last century we created physical concentration camps to hide our atrocities from the public, but today we have psychotronic technologies on hands which allow us to place the virtual concentration camps straight into our very bodies and we can destroy ourselves with one single vibration without even knowing it. One way would be to look at it from the top, from the available concepts of CREATION because their metaphysicality of Emptiness/ Nothingness can obstructs the right understanding of the internal world that governs the external. The concept of the Tree of Life more or less unites all religions into one:
The top- Absolute/Sunyata/Emptiness is a place to be clarified. For that another graph will serve as a useful means:
It is hard to grasp the distinctions between them but in the Food Diagram there is a needed information to it: The (SUN)ABSOLUTE is on the top and the (HOLY THE FIRM) ABSOLUTE/ NOTHINGNESS on the bottom. HOLY THE FIRM is said to be connected with the SUN ABSOLUTE and it is represented as an incomplete hydrogen 6144, a hydrogen without the HOLY GHOST. [“Each complete hydrogen is composed of carbon, oxygen and nitrogen. Now take the last hydrogen of the third scale, hydrogen 3072. This hydrogen is composed of carbon 512, oxygen 1536 and nitrogen 1024. Now further: nitrogen becomes carbon for the next triad, but there is no oxygen for it and no nitrogen. Therefore by condensation it becomes itself hydrogen 6144, but it is a dead hydrogen without any possibility of passing into anything further, a hydrogen without the HOLY GHOST.”] ISOM.
Further understanding comes through the emotional centres, not through the mental/intellectual centres:
[“After a certain rate of vibration everything in the Universe becomes psychological. Air and light= psychological food. The transmutation of substances.” ] The Unknowable G.
It is vital for all academics of every field to understand, that NOTHINGNESS on the level of the ABSOLUTE is a psychological equivalent to the vacuum in physics. I testify that it is an ABSOLUTELY FRIGHTENING space of absolute nothingness of any form perceived by any of our senses, where none of the loving emanations of the SUN ABSOLUTE penetrate. It is more merciful to encounter the EVIL. From that I imply that The HOLY GHOST must be the force of LOVE of the ABSOLUTE, the third, reconciling force of the Law of 3. I strongly suggest the science wakes up or is woken up to the fact that we are at the threshold of the internal world that can be fully accessed only via the emotional centre as a sole gate to the ‘higher emotional’ and ‘higher intellectual’ centres of man, where the REAL KNOWLEDGE resides but is inaccessible to us by our dreadfully low level of vibrations we operate on. It can be compared to inability to catch certain radio stations in the areas of bad perceptions.. The artificial intelligence is hardly going to increase them, so the utter concentration on the technocratic evolution of the mental/physical faculties of man seems to be a region for human intelligence’s innovations. The current level of psychopatic ‘life exercise’ of flooding and coronavirus across the planet would certainly suggest that.
“Behold, this is the essence of God in all truth and can only be grasped with the heart, but not ever with the intellect. GGJ HHG 2
“…….the Universe can be taken as response to request. Man requests,
and the Universe in all its full and total reality, outer and inner, responds
according to the request. In regard to what was said last time, I wish
to draw your attention to this fact: many people are getting responses
to requests which they do not understand they are making. If the
Universe, visible and invisible, material and psychological, gross and
fine, as apprehended externally by the senses and internally by the
mind and heart, is response to request, then you will see how important
it is to realize what kind of requests you are making in order to understand
why you get the response, from any side of life, that you are actually
getting. The Work says: “Your being attracts your life”. Do you see
the connection? Without knowing it, a man or a woman may be making request and so getting a response from the total Universe that he or
she does not like. They see the response but do not see what excites the
response, what it is in themselves that attracts it. People, in other
words, may be asking for trouble without being aware that they are.
They only see the result—that is, the response. They see only effects,
not causes. To think only from effects is one thing. It is how mechanical
people think. To think from causes is another thing. It belongs to more
conscious thinking. Now the level of your being enters into request as
much or more than your knowledge. You may ask intellectually for
happiness but not see how factors that govern your being, as love of
your negative states, your grievances, your secret jealousies, your laziness,
your dislikes, and so on, are asking for something quite different, and that
the Universe is responding to these factors in your being that you are
secretly willing and affirming without seeing that you are. Understand
that full request must contain both thought and will—formulation and
emotional desire. The side of knowledge is the side of thought and a
man can only think from his knowledge. The side of being wills, and a
man only wills what he desires. If you love negative states, then your
will is of this quality. Your love is your will; it will attract the response
belonging to it. Only self-knowledge will make you aware of your state
of being and this begins with self-observation. Enough has been said
here on this subject—namely, that a person may be getting responses he
does not expect or desire, without seeing that he is attracting them
because he is making requests for them that he is not aware of.”
Dr M.Nicoll Commentaries vol.I
I was told by a teacher that my being is not high enough to get the adequate response to “my” request. I agreed, but that did not diminish request which has been for good of the whole of humanity. So when seeing over and over again the response, I cannot but conclude that my request is actually not the request I am making, so someone else with higher being needs to come forward and do that as is needed.
“It has been explained before that in ordinary conditions of life we do not remember ourselves; we do not remember, that is, we do not feel ourselves, are not aware of ourselves at the moment of perception, of an emotion, of a thought or of an action. If a man understands this and tries to remember himself, every impression he receives while remembering himself will, so to speak, be doubled. In an ordinary psychic state, I simply look at a street. But if I remember myself, I do not simply look at the street; I feel that I am looking, as though saying to myself: ‘I am looking.’ Instead of one impression of the street, there are two impressions, one of the street and another of myself looking at it. (divided attention). This second impression, produced by the fact of my remembering myself, is the ‘additional shock.’ Moreover, it very often happens that the additional sensation connected with self-remembering brings with it an element of emotion,”
Efforts to remember oneself, observation of oneself at the moment of receiving an impression, observation of one’s impressions at the moment of receiving them, registering, so to speak, the reception of impressions and the simultaneous defining of the impressions received, all this taken together doubles the intensity of the impressions….”
……the highest matter can be “produced by the organism from air, that is, from the second kind of food. This, however, is obtained only by making a conscious effort* at the moment an impression is received. …. “It is necessary to understand what this means. We all breathe the same air. Apart from the elements known to our science, the air contains a great number of substances unknown to science, indefinable for it, and inaccessible to its observation. But exact analysis is possible both of the air inhaled and of the air exhaled.
This exact analysis shows that although the air inhaled by different people is exactly the same, the air exhaled is quite different. Let us suppose that the air we breathe is composed of twenty different elements unknown to our science. A certain number of these elements are absorbed by every man when he breathes. Let us suppose that five of these elements are always absorbed. Consequently, the air exhaled by every man is composed of fifteen elements; five of them have gone to feeding the organism. But some people exhale not fifteen but only ten elements, that is to say, they absorb five elements more. These five elements are higher ‘hydrogens.’ These higher ‘hydrogens’ are present in every small particle of air we inhale. By inhaling air we introduce these higher ‘hydrogens’ into ourselves, but if our organism does not know how to extract them out of the particles of air, and retain them, they are exhaled back into the air. If the organism is able to extract and retain them, they remain in it. In this way, we all breathe the same air but we extract different substances from it. Some extract more, others less. “In order to extract more, it is necessary to have in our organism a certain quantity of corresponding fine substances. Then the fine substances contained in the organism act like a magnet on the fine substances contained in the inhaled air. We come again to the old alchemical law: ‘In order to make gold, it is first of all necessary to have a certain quantity of real gold.’ ‘If no gold whatever is possessed, there is no means whatever of making it.’ “The whole of alchemy is nothing but an allegorical description of the human factory and its work of transforming base metals (coarse substances) into precious ones (fine substances).”
Excerpts from P.D. Ouspensky ISOM
*Conscious effort to divide attention between what we do (the object of our attention) and our physical body at the same time, to bring attention to it as well (like noticing my own breathing). The car’s autopilot (e.g. daydreaming) can be switched off, I may take control of driving, concentrate attention fully on speeding, be in the moment, yet identifying with it, not being aware of my physical body behind the wheel, only one-way attention.
The effort to control one’s emotions to save the expenditure of energy needed for conscious effort:
the practice of not expressing unpleasant or negative emotions, doubt, fear, anger, irritation, self-pity, etc….
of not ‘identifying’ with every nonsense, of not considering inwardly (what others think of me) but externally (what needs to be done) …..
“…if the Lord’ Prayer is tied up with fasting, why does it say ‘give us this day our daily bread’?”
“You’ve got it wrong. It isn’t with the Lord’s Prayer that fasting is tied up, but with the discovery of the note on which such prayers should be chanted. Without fasting you can’t discover the Name”
“Well, when you say ‘hallowed be thy Name’, what do you mean?”
I had to confess I had never thought about it.
“In your church, nobody does think about it. They beg the question by saying it is the name of God and leave it at that. Yet the key is in your scriptures: ‘In the beginning was the Name and the Name was with God and the name was God'”
“In the beginning was the Word, not Name”.
“Logos if you want to bicker” he retorted. “The point is that when there wasn’t yet any language there can’t have been any words and there can’t have been any names in the ordinary sense.
“Then what was the logos?”
“A sound. The first sound. The deepest sound.What you might call the world’s tonic note.”
“A sound we can hear?”
“Feel. Not hear in the ordinary sense.
The most penetrating sound is inaudible, just as the most penetrating light is invisible. But by training, you can produce an audible echo of the sound because every octave is a replica at a different level of every other octave, as everybody knows.
The function of prayer is not to beg or to extol but to attune.”
“To attune what?”
“The body. Or the soul, if you prefer the metaphor.
You are a musical instrument as a piano is and you need to be kept in tune. That’s where fasting and other exercises come in; you cannot possibly reflect finer vibrations when your body -or soul if you prefer -is loaded with a lot of food in the stomach or while the blood makes a din chasing about in the veins and arteries.”
“The blood? Making a din?”
“Like a cascade. You can’t hear it when you are always listening outwards. You have to listen inwards – and that alone is an art in itself…”
“….and needs to be studied systematically, not in an amateurish or haphazard way.”
excerpts from On a single breath S.P.Dukes
(so who does teach that nowadays, over a hundred years later?)
so rather than passing on the subjective thoughts which seem to get nowhere I exchange them for the conscious ones, which ought to be pondered by all militaries, ‘leaders’ and scientists: If they were, we might be somewhere else:
“Although you were created for the purpose of the common-cosmic existence on planets, and although you were created also as “a-field-of-hope” for the future expectations of our COMMON ALL-GRACIOUS CREATOR – that is to say, created with the possibilities of coating in your presence that “Higher-Sacred” for the possible arising of which the whole of our now existing World was just created – and in spite of the said possibilities given to you, that is to say, in spite of your having been created three-brained with possibilities of a logical mentation, yet you do not use this sacred property of yours for the purpose for which it was foreordained, but manifest it as “cunning” towards HIS other creations, as, for instance, towards your own-donkey.
“Apart from the possibilities present in you of consciously coating in your presence the mentioned ‘Higher-Sacred’, this donkey of yours is of the same value for the common-cosmic process and consequently for our COMMON CREATOR, as you yourself, since each of you is predestined for some definite purpose, and these distinct definite purposes, in their totality, actualize the sense of Everything Existing.’
‘The difference between you and your own-donkey is merely in the form and quality of functioning of the internal and external organization of your common presences.
“Such a distribution of forces and strength, which at first sight appears unjust, on the part of our MOST JUST CREATOR was made by Great Nature, simply because the surplus of cosmic substances foreseeingly given you by the CREATOR and by Nature to use for the purpose of your personal self-perfecting, is not given to your donkey, but in place of this, Great Nature Herself transforms the same surplus of cosmic substances in your donkey’s presence for the power and strength of certain of its organs for its present existence only, but of course without the personal cognition of the donkey itself, thus enabling it to manifest the said power incomparably better than you.
And these variously powered manifestations of beings of diverse forms actualize in their totality just those exterior conditions in which alone it is possible for those similar to you – that is, for three-brained beings – consciously to perfect the “germ-of-Reason” placed in their presences, to the necessary gradation of Pure Objective Reason.
“I repeat, all beings, of all brain systems, without exception, large and small, arising and existing on the Earth or within the Earth, in the air or beneath the waters, are all equally necessary for our COMMON CREATOR, for the common harmony of the existence of Everything Existing.
“‘And as all the enumerated forms of beings actualize all together the form of the process required by our CREATOR for the existence of Everything Existing, the essences of all beings are to Him equally valuable and dear.
‘For our COMMON CREATOR, all beings are only parts of the existence of a whole essence spiritualized by HIMSELF.
“‘But what do we see here now?
“One form of beings created by HIM, in whose presences HE has placed all HIS hopes and expectations for the future welfare of Everything Existing, taking advantage of their superiorities lord it over other forms and destroy their existence right and left and, what is more, they do so presumably “in HIS name.”
“‘The whole terror of it is that although such phenomenal anti-god acts take place here in every house and on every square, nevertheless it never enters the head of any of these unfortunates that these beings whose existence I or we are now destroying, are equally dear to that ONE, Who has created them, and that if HE created these other forms of beings as well as ourselves, it must also have been for some purpose.’….
….”I am quite sure that if any one of them should become aware that in destroying another’s existence he is not only committing an evil deed against the true God and every real Saint, but is even causing them, in their essences, sorrow, and grief that there should exist in the great Universe “in-the-likeness-of-God” being-monsters who can manifest towards other creations of our COMMON CREATOR so consciencelessly and pitilessly; I repeat, if any one of them should become aware of this, then certainly not one among them could with all his heart ever again destroy the existence of beings of other forms for Sacrificial-Offerings.
“Then perhaps on the Earth also, would begin to exist the eighteenth personal commandment of our COMMON CREATOR which declared:
“Love everything that breathes.”
“‘It goes without saying, GOD forgives everything – this has even become a law in the World.”
‘But HIS creations – in this case people – must not abuse this All-Gracious and Everywhere-Penetrating Goodness of HIS; they must not only care for but even maintain all HE has created.”
excerpts from BT G.I.G. written 100 years ago
„Přestože jsi byl stvořen pro společné účely vesmírné existence na planetách, a přestože jsi byl stvořen také jako „pole naděje“ pro budoucí očekávání našeho SPOLEČNÉHO-VŠE-MILOSRDNÉHO- TVŮRCE – tedy řečeno stvořen s možnostmi oblékání „Vyššího-Posvátného“ v tvé přítomnosti, právě pro jehož možné vznikání byl celý náš současný Svět vytvořen – a navzdory zmíněným možnostem, které ti byly dány, jinak řečeno přestože jsi byl stvořen jako tří-mozkový s možnostmi logické mentace, přesto toto své posvátné vlastnictví nevyužíváš k účelu, pro který bylo předem určeno, ale projevuješ ho jako „mazanost“ vůči JEHO jiným stvořením, jako například vůči tvému oslovi.
„Kromě možností vědomého ‘oblékání’ zmíněného Vyššího Nejsvětějšího ve své přítomnosti, které v tobě je, má ten tvůj osel pro společný kosmický proces a následně pro našeho SPOLEČNÉHO TVŮRCE stejnou hodnotu jako ty, protože každý z vás je předurčen k nějakému specifickému účelu a tyto odlišné specifické účely v jejich úplnosti aktualizují smysl Všeho Existujícího. “
„Rozdíl mezi tebou a tvým oslem je pouze ve formě a kvalitě fungování vnitřní a vnější organizace vašich společných přítomností.
“Ty máš například pouze dvě nohy, zatímco osel má až čtyři, z nichž každá je navíc nekonečně silnější než tvoje.”
“Uneseš například na těch svých nohách stejně tolik jako ten osel?”
„Určitě ne, protože tvé nohy jsou ti dány pouze k tomu, abys unesl sám sebe a to málo, co je nezbytné pro normální existenci tří-mozkové bytosti, jak předvídala Příroda.
“Takové rozdělení sil a moci, které se na první pohled jeví jako nespravedlivé bylo ze strany našeho NEJSPRAVEDLIVĚJŠÍHO TVŮRCE provedeno Velikou Přírodou jednoduše proto, že nadbytek vesmírných substancí, které ti předvídavě poskytli TVŮRCE a Příroda k tvému osobnímu sebe-zdokonalování není dán tvému oslovi, ale namísto toho Veliká Příroda sama transformuje stejný nadbytek kosmických substancí v přítomnosti tvého osla na sílu a moc některých jeho orgánů pouze pro jeho současnou existenci, ale samozřejmě aniž by si to osel sám osobně uvědomil, což mu umožňuje projevit zmíněnou sílu nesrovnatelně lépe než ty.
„A tyto různě poháněné projevy bytostí rozličných tvarů v jejich souhrnu aktualizují právě ty vnější podmínky, v nichž samotných je možné aby ti, kteří jsou podobni tobě – tedy tří-mozkové bytosti – vědomě zdokonalovaly „zárodek Rozumu“, umístěného v jejich přítomnosti k nezbytné gradaci Čistého Objektivního Rozumu.
“Opakuji, všechny bytosti všech mozkových systémů bez výjimky, velké i malé, vznikající a existující na Zemi nebo uvnitř Země, ve vzduchu nebo pod vodami, jsou pro našeho SPOLEČNÉHO TVŮRCE stejně nezbytné pro společnou harmonii existence Všeho Existujícího.
„A protože všechny vyjmenované formy bytostí společně aktualizují formu procesu, který náš TVŮRCE vyžaduje pro existenci Všeho Existujícího, esence všech bytostí jsou pro Něho stejně cenné a drahé.
„Pro našeho společného TVŮRCE jsou všechny bytosti pouze částmi Jím zduchovnělé existence celé esence . “Ale co tu teď vidíme?”
„Jednu formu bytostí Jím vytvořených, do jejichž přítomnosti umístil všechny své naděje a očekávání pro budoucí blaho Všeho Existujícího, kteří využívají své nadřazenosti k vládě nad jinými formami a ničí jejich existenci vpravo a vlevo a navíc se domnívají, že v “Jeho jménu“.
„Jsem si docela jistý, že pokud by si někdo z nich měl uvědomit, že ničením existence druhého nečiní jen zlý skutek pravému bohu a každému opravdovému Svatému, ale dokonce způsobuje v jejich esencích zármutek a utrpení tím, že by ve velikém Vesmíru měly existovat bytostní nestvůry v podobnosti Boží“, které se mohou projevovat vůči ostatním stvořením našeho SPOLEČNÉHO TVŮRCE tak nesvědomitě a žalostně; opakuji, kdyby si to měl někdo z nich uvědomit, pak už by rozhodně nikdy ani jeden z nich nemohl kvůli obětním darům zničit celým svým srdcem existenci bytostí jiných forem.
„Potom by snad také na Zemi začalo existovat osmnácté osobní přikázání našeho SPOLEČNÉHO TVŮRCE, které prohlašuje: „Milujte vše, co dýchá.“
„Je samozřejmé, že BŮH odpouští všechno – to se dokonce stalo na Světě zákonem.
„Ale JEHO tvorstvo – v tomto případě lidé – nesmí JEHO VšeMilosrdné a Vším-Pronikající Dobro zneužívat; musí se nejen starat ale dokonce udržovat vše, co vytvořil.
výňatky z BT G.I.G.
Esoteric science: today is a result of yesterday and tomorrow will be a result of today. (what is done today will be done tomorrow). Any changes can be made only in ‘now’. (One of the 48 Objective Laws of the Universe, under which humanity, in general, finds itself). So if by any chance anybody wants to change tomorrow, he/she has to do it ‘now’. By changing ‘now’ they will change tomorrow and by changing tomorrow they will change the past.
is the highest science available to men on Earth. You can do harm even kill with it and heal and give life back, such high knowledge it contains. Who has access to it has also incredible advantages over the rest of the population and so adequate responsibility. If he/she purposefully misuses it against another being, he/she creates a very powerful force against themselves hard to redress, despite of all-forgiveness of our Creator.
“To ordinary knowledge,” he said, “organic life is a kind of accidental appendage violating the integrity of a mechanical system. Ordinary knowledge does not connect it with anything and draws no conclusions from the fact of its existence. But you should already understand that there is nothing accidental or unnecessary in nature and that there can be nothing; everything has a definite function; everything serves a definite purpose. Thus organic life is an indispensable link in the chain of the worlds which cannot exist without it just as it cannot exist without them. It has been said before that organic life transmits planetary influences of various kinds to the earth and that it serves to feed the moon and to enable it to grow and strengthen. But the earth also is growing; not in the sense of size but in the sense of greater consciousness, greater receptivity.The planetary influences which were sufficient for her at one period of her existence become insufficient, she needs the reception of finer influences. To receive finer influences a finer, more sensitive receptive apparatus is necessary. Organic life, therefore, has to evolve, to adapt itself to the needs of the planets and the earth. Likewise also the moon can be satisfied at one period with the food which is given her by organic life of a certain quality, but afterwards the time comes when she ceases to be satisfied with this food, cannot grow on it, and begins to get hungry. Organic life must be able to satisfy this hunger, otherwise it does not fulfill its function, does not answer its purpose. This means that in order to answer its purpose organic life must evolve and stand on the level of the needs of the planets, the earth, and the moon. “We must remember that the ray of creation, as we have taken it, from the Absolute to the moon, is like a branch of a tree—a growing branch. The end of this branch, the end out of which come new shoots, is the moon. If the moon does not grow, if it neither gives nor promises to give new shoots, it means that either the growth of the whole ray of creation will stop or that it must find another path for its growth, give out some kind of lateral branch. …..

“All creation is governed by law,” Sri Yukteswar concluded. “The ones which manifest in the outer universe, discoverable by scientists, are called natural laws. But there are subtler laws ruling the realms of consciousness which can be known only through the inner science of yoga. The hidden spiritual planes also have their natural and lawful principles of operation. It is not the physical scientist but the fully self-realized master who comprehends the true nature of matter. Thus Christ was able to restore the servant’s ear after it had been severed by one of the disciples.” 12-11
Sri Yukteswar was a peerless interpreter of the scriptures. Many of my happiest memories are centered in his discourses. But his jeweled thoughts were not cast into ashes of heedlessness or stupidity. One restless movement of my body, or my slight lapse into absent-mindedness, sufficed to put an abrupt period to Master’s exposition. “You are not here.” Master interrupted himself one afternoon with this disclosure. As usual, he was keeping track of my attention with a devastating immediacy.
“Guruji!” My tone was a protest. “I have not stirred; my eyelids have not moved; I can repeat each word you have uttered!”
“Nevertheless you were not fully with me. Your objection forces me to remark that in your mental background you were creating three institutions. One was a sylvan retreat on a plain, another on a hilltop, a third by the ocean.”
Those vaguely formulated thoughts had indeed been present almost subconsciously. I glanced at him apologetically.
“What can I do with such a master, who penetrates my random musings?”
“You have given me that right. The subtle truths I am expounding cannot be grasped without your complete concentration. Unless necessary I do not invade the seclusion of others’ minds.Man has the natural privilege of roaming secretly among his thoughts. The unbidden Lord does not enter there; neither do I venture intrusion.”
“You are ever welcome, Master!”
“Your architectural dreams will materialize later. Now is the time for study!”
