Three and a Half Cycles

Three and a Half Cycles

Reader Question: Why did the Christ say He would return in about 2000-2500 years, if it takes about 3500 years or 3 and a half times longer as the principle?

JJ The three and a half does not refer to a thousand years any more than it would refer to three and a half times 100 or 50. Instead it refers to natural cycles. Specific natural cycles mentioned in the scriptures where this figure applies are days, years and months.

Other natural cycles are generations, seasons, hours, periods of work, repeating cycles, etc. It could refer to 1000 only if an identified period of a cycle covering that time period is mentioned.

I do not see the three and a half used in reference to the absence of Christ, but it is used in reference to the church of Christ being hidden from the earth, which we shall cover in the next chapter.

The three and a half periods generally apply to a period of work or tribulation that ends with a step of progress if the labor is not terminated.

The cycles could be divided like this.

First Period. This is the period which lies within the expected time that the work is thought to be successfully completed.

Second Period. This is the period that goes beyond that which was expected. Now it is apparent to all that the labor is much more difficult than expected. If the initiator perseveres some complaints will surface, but it appears he still has the support to continue to victory.

Third Period. The initiator has persevered with bullheadedness, in the eyes of many, and it seems the work is doomed to failure and any more effort is a waste of time. Even many friends and supporters turn on the initiate and attempt to make him alter his path.

The Half a Time, or Period. Only the committed initiate on the path of the Christ has the will to continue until this final time of enduring to the end is reached. Perhaps the best example of this was the work of Lincoln, a high initiate, during the Civil War. After over 500,000 deaths of his own brethren, he continued to the half a time with a determination seen by few people in history. Now, on hindsight, we see that this half a time of perseverance was extremely important to the history of the world.

Even so it is with any disciple who follows the path of Christ. He will see a vision of his work and within himself form an estimate of how long it will take to achieve success.

This is the first period and after it passes it will seem he is farther from success than when he started. Then twice that time passes and still the goal is far away and initial supporters are starting to grumble and fall away.

Two times or cycles have passed and now he enters the “time,” or the third cycle. Not only do supporters turn on him and wonder if he was ever right or inspired to begin with but he doubts himself. Only by going back in his mind to the initial revelation of the work and reminding himself of its reality can he manage the power to continue.

The disciple who does not do this only cries out “My God, why have you forsaken me!” and quits.

The disciple who does correctly reflect may still make this cry but he continues for the half a time despite the appearances and circumstances.

As he endures to the end through the final maze and fog the inner sun arises and its blazing flames dispel the mist and all doubts evaporate. After the half a time the disciple wonders why he ever doubted, for he is glad beyond measure that he did not give up.

Those who fell away from the cause return as if they were supporters all the time.

Those who betrayed him retreat into silence and dare not speak as they did before, else they appear as fools.

Those who stayed with the initiate are seen as true friends to himself and to each other and have joy and knowledge of real brotherhood – a brotherhood known to a sacred few.

Three and one half is half of seven, the number of days in a week and the number of cycles of creation.

After three a half days of creation God was in the middle of making the great lights in the heavens, darkness was no more.

After the three and a half cycles are passed the work is not done but the second half of the work begins. This is the work where the laborers proceed in the light rather than in the dark. It is now seen the labor is beneficial and desirable and many come to the aid of the initiator (who is often dead or gone) and finish the work.

For instance, after the civil war, even though Lincoln was dead, the people now saw the value of the labor and sought to finish his work and reconstruct the country. Indeed, there were many problems but overall the labor benefited many generations to come.

Remember that after God completed the seven days of labor his greatest creation (Adam) fell and still more labor was required to salvage him.

The earth itself was beautiful, but was far from perfect. Even so, no work started by an initiate is perfect and beyond criticism, but it will be a thing of beauty and will be a vehicle to assist humankind to go where they have not gone before.

 Next we will more closes examine the following concerning the Two Witnesses: Rev 11:5 And if any man will hurt them, fire proceedeth out of their mouth, and devoureth their enemies: and if any man will hurt them, he must in this manner be killed. Rev 11:6 These have power to shut heaven, that it rain not in the days of their prophecy: and have power over waters to turn them to blood, and to smite the earth with all plagues, as often as they will.

(1) Who are their enemies? (2) What is the fire coming out of their mouths? (3) What will happen when heaven is shut? (4) What does it mean that they will have power over the waters? (5) What is the symbolism of turning the water to blood and smiting the earth with plagues?

A reader asks: Does your comment mean that because some may not support or agree with the disciple they are no longer his friends even though they bear him no harm.

JJ I don’t know where you get this idea, certainly not from anything I have said. What happens is usually the other way around. As the initiate proceeds with his work many of his friends and fellow workers give up on him as well as the project. These often view the initiate as insane or mislead and will often withdraw their friendship.

One who is fairly progressed along the path will attempt to be friendly and a friend to all though he may be limited in establishing numerous personal friendships because of time.

Reader Comment: They may support him in general, or in some things, but that doesn’t mean in everything. That would prove them fools, indeed!

JJ An initiate does not expect perfect agreement in all details but it is important that all workers see the same big picture or else little will get accomplished.

If a true disciple is laboring to complete a certain job, he certainly would not expect someone who does not like the labor or the project to work against his will.

Reader Comment:  There are many teachers, disciples, and initiates working in the world today in common purpose and I’m familiar with the work of a number of them. I don t personally see any one of them as superior to the other, or another. Each is very well suited to their particular calling and missions and most will go on against all odds, but this is the only time I have ever heard it implied by anyone, that those that didn’t see and recognize the superiority of an alleged initiate would eventually come crawling back hiding the fact that they were fools like nothing had ever happened. Only time will tell who the real fools were, if any. It may not be a matter of fools, but those that were fooled.

JJ I don’t know where you see this aura of superiority that you are talking about here.

Let us again use the example of Abraham Lincoln who DK acknowledged was a “racial avatar.”

He felt within himself that it was of extreme importance in the scheme of things to preserve the union and to free the slaves in the process if at all possible.

When the war started many thought it would be short and Lincoln had reasonable support. But as things progressed and it looked as if the it would never end many who previously supported him turned against him, There were conspiracies in both the North and the South, in Canada in France and England to kill him.

Then after the war ended, he was martyred and his work began to be seen as one of extreme significance for humanity. Many of those who opposed him acted as if they were supporters all along. Many who were not friends claimed to be his friend. Those who openly spoke against him during the work became silent and did not speak else they appear a fool, especially in the North.

Now did Abraham Lincoln project a smugness and air of superiority? Not really. Even his enemies did not accuse him of such.

Did he have a work to do that he internally knew was right and good to accomplish?

Yes, he did or he could have never persevered the way he did.

Was Lincoln unfriendly to those who had different view than himself?


If someone was an open and hostile enemy how was he handled?

In a number of different ways. If possible, Lincoln ignored him but if his hand was forced, he dealt with them as an enemy.

Did Lincoln think that his work was superior to all others?

There is no evidence that he thought this way, even though his work was indeed important. It only appears that he thought he had a job to do and went ahead and did it.

Did Lincoln depend on others who saw eye to eye with him to get the job done?

Yes. Lincoln did depend on many others who agreed with him in the general principles of the work. Those who wanted a nation divided were not much assistance to him.

Reader:  “.”I am certain that the path and direction we have taken is the Will of Almighty God. Adolph Hitler

JJ Are you implying that if a person believes himself to be in harmony with the will of God that he is insane?

While it is true that the bad guys and the disillusioned often think they are following the will of God but so do many of the good guys.

Lincoln thought it was within the will of God that slaves should be freed. Was that a bad thing?

Notice that the two disciples who fought Hitler were also confident they were following his will.

“We are not content to stand still. As Americans, we go forward, in the service of our country, by the will of God.” FDR Inaugural Address 1941

“Arm yourselves, and be ye men of valour, and be in readiness for the conflict; for it is better for us to perish in battle than to look upon the outrage of our nation and our altar. As the Will of God is in Heaven, even so let it be.” Winston Churchill Radio Broadcast May 19, 1940

“Such inspired leadership is now being given to humanity by Winston Churchill and Franklin D. Roosevelt, in contradistinction to the focused leadership of the forces of materialism through Hitler and another man in his group. …These Avatars express the Will of God, the energy of Shamballa…” From Externalization of the Hierarchy Page 301

Hitler ate carrots too but that doesn’t mean I can’t eat them. He initiated the Volkswagen, but it doesn’t mean it was an evil car.

No matter what work is put forth we have to examine it in the light of the soul and then go by the highest we see to be correct.

In closing I think it is important that readers understand as we examine this part of Revelation that we are talking about the work that is seen and attempted by a high initiate following the path of Christ. Generally, a work chosen by a high initiate will be a beneficial one for humanity if accomplished.

Compare it to building a house. If a builder works on creating a house, which is very usable and a positive creation, then this is not to say that others cannot also work on homes of their own design which are also good.

On the other hand, neither does it mean that every house built is good. Some have poor foundations and are built cheaply and fall apart.

If the builder decides to go ahead, he does not find those who overly criticize to be of much use. He needs those who are willing to work on the building according to the blueprint. With no blueprint the house will be a dismal failure.

The logic here is pretty basic.

To know oneself is to study oneself in action with another person. Bruce Lee (1940 – 1973), Tao of Jeet Kune Do

The Two Witnesses

The Two Witnesses

Continuing with Revelation:

“And I will give power unto my two witnesses, and they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth. These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.” Rev 11:3-4

Before we give the inner interpretation let us briefly relate the orthodox one. Standard Christians see the two witnesses as two physical prophets who shall appear in the last days. Some believe they will be Moses (or possibly Enoch) and Elijah come again, not reincarnated, but making a supernatural appearance. They see these two as appearing in Jerusalem and causing all kinds of grief to unbelievers.

On the fringe side of things there are hundreds out there with large egos claiming to be one of the two witnesses. Because of this claim we are supposed to drop everything and follow them

Then there are others who teach that the two witnesses are groups, movements or even historical figures.

While it may be true that certain physical correspondences may appear from time to time that could be interpreted as the two witnesses (and I have written of this myself) I think the reader will find that the inner interpretation will strike a chord within. Whereas the outer interpretation occurs within a very limited time; the inner applies from the time of John until today and henceforth.

So, who or what are the two witnesses and what is it they are witnessing to or for the disciple seeking to unfold the Christ within?

To answer this question, we must recap the meaning of the recent verses.

The disciple has eaten the little book or obtained a revelation of his place in the scheme of things, his mission and the work to be done. After this, he sees he must look into the hearts of men and discern the true seekers after the light within from those who are governed by the light without.

What is it that must now be witnessed or verified?

To answer this, we must reflect back on the book (mission) he swallows. We are told “it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey.”

The mission and labor is sweet to dream and talk about, but the actual work and application can be very bitter because of the resistance the one following the path of Christ encounters. Remember that Jesus had to suffer the bitter pill of suffering in the garden and being crucified.

Others seeking to follow the path of Christ may not be crucified but they must be willing to give even their lives if necessary and will also reach that point where they will ask “if it be possible, remove this cup.”

The only way the disciple can make his way through this valley of the shadow of death is to be absolutely sure his direction is correct. Otherwise, he will stumble, fall and not recover to obtain the victory.

The only way for him to obtain this surety is to obtain the two witnesses.

“And I will give power unto my two witnesses…”

Note that the two witnesses are given power from God. What is the purpose of such power? The purpose is to verify with a positiveness that transcends physical reality so the witness is sure.

So who or what are the two witnesses?

“These are the two olive trees, and the two candlesticks standing before the God of the earth.” Verse 4

What does this tell us?

A clue is given in the Book of Zechariah

“Here is a lamp-stand meets my eyes, all of gold. A bowl this lamp-stand has at the top of it, and from the bowl run seven pipes, to feed the seven lamps that crown it. And there are two olive trees hanging over it, one to the right and one to the left of the bowl . . .” Zech 4:1-4

“Then I asked him about the two olive trees, to right and left of the lamp-stand; and there was more I would know. What are the two olive-shoots, close beside the two golden taps that feed yonder pipes of gold? What said he, canst thou not tell? Not I, my Lord, I answered. What should these be he said, but the two newly anointed ones that stand in his presence, who is Master of the whole earth?” Zech 4:11-14 Knox Version

Notice that we have the symbolism of the two most important numbers when dealing with the Creator which is the seven and the three. We have the seven pipes and lamps symbolizing the “seven spirits before the throne.” Then we have the “Master of the whole earth” and the two anointed ones who feed the seven. These two plus the one equal the three of the Trinity.

After there disciple meets the powerful angel and eats the little book he feels he has a witness from on high (the powerful angel), but this is still not enough to sustain him. Remember that as Jesus faltered in the garden that “there appeared an angel unto him from heaven, strengthening him.” Even for the Master, knowledge of his mission from his father was not enough. He needed additional assistance from another witness.

Next, as Jesus faced his accusers Peter cut the ear off of one of the soldiers. After this Jesus healed the ear in the eyes of all. This was a final witness to himself as well as his accusers that his mission was indeed in harmony with the higher will.

The purpose of the two witnesses is first to strengthen the disciple and, secondly, to verify his works.

The witnesses fulfill two purposes. First to strengthen and verify to the disciple and secondly to witness to the people who listen.

The first witness increases the inward spiritual power that is sent forth from the disciple to the people. The people receiving his words thus feel an inner strength being projected. Then the second witness verifies his works to the people.

In other words, the verification of his works and words are the two witnesses from the disciple to the people as well as to himself.

“…they shall prophesy a thousand two hundred and threescore days, clothed in sackcloth.”

Sackcloth in Bible days was made of a coarse, black goat’s hair. The material was used to make sacks, but also garments used to signify a period of mourning over calamities or death.

And what is the period of time involved?

“…a thousand two hundred and threescore days (1260)…”

This is the second time period mentioned in this chapter. The first reads:

“…the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.” Verse 2

A prophetic month in scripture was considered to be a flat 30 days. Thus 42 months equals exactly 1260. The symbolism of this figure is repeated numerous times in the Apocalypse. Later there is a period of “times, a time and a half a time.” Times equal one season, period or year, time equals one and finally a half a time. Add these together and we get three and a half periods. If we apply this to scriptural years of 360 days each we again arrive at 1260 days. Then later in this verse we see the witnesses were dead for three and a half days.

We thus see that the three and a half periods were repeated four times in the book, but written four different ways.

What is the reasoning for this?

This is to emphasize that the three and a half represents a principle rather than a black and white time period. The thing which is consistent with all these four time periods is also significant. All four represent periods of loss, tribulation or mourning before victory is achieved.

[1] The holy city is “tread under foot forty and two months.”

[2] The two witnesses prophesy during 1260 days of difficulty and resistance from enemies.

[3] The two witnesses are dead for three and a half days.

[4] The church flees to the wilderness for times, a time and a half a time (three and a half times).

“What then is the true meaning of the three and a half periods?

The answer is much different than you have read in the various Bible commentaries.

Humanity has a certain affiliation with the number three, as far as time or work goes. This is illustrated in the truism “Three is charm.” It seems to us that after three attempts or periods that success is to be achieved. Evidence of this is even seen in the resurrection of Christ for it is thought he was in the tomb for three days. Maybe this is incorrect. Maybe it was really three and a half days.

The reason that the great miracle of Jesus raising Lazarus from the dead was so impressive was that he was in the tomb for over three days. It was a belief among the Jews that it was impossible to bring a man back to life who had been dead for more than three days.

When Jesus was told of the death of his friend, he purposefully delayed going to Lazarus so he would be dead for over three days. This was very upsetting to those close to him for they also thought that even Jesus could not bring him back after three days. Both Mary and Martha expressed regret that he did not arrive earlier.

We are told that this attitude made him groan ‘in the spirit, and was troubled.” John 11:33

Why was he so troubled? Because of this built-in mechanism that normal humanity has within themselves to just give up after the three periods.

This is why Jesus taught us that he who endures to the end shall be delivered. Matt 10:22 The end is always at least a half of a time period beyond that which the seeker expects.

The key to success is to not endure just one round of troubles, or even two or three, but always expect an extra half more than you think will be the maximum. In truth it may be more than the half, but at least a half.

The bottom line is that success will take as long as it takes but the promise is that if we endure to the end, we will achieve success. The problem is the end is always further away than one tends to expect. That last period that extends beyond the three rounds is the one crucial to success.

Two good examples of this are the two greatest conflicts experienced in the United States – the Civil War and World War II.

Time and time again great pressure was placed upon Lincoln to end the war, especially after three years had passed. It is only due to the iron will and inspired determination of this man that the war was successfully consummated after three and a half years had passed.

The same thing happened with World War II. No one was sure who would win after three years of U.S. involvement, but after we endured three and a half years it seemed pretty sure we would win, and of course we did.

A similar time period was at play in World War I which lasted just over three and a half years in Europe.

The principle taught is this. If we want to achieve victory on any level, we must be willing to endure for longer than the expected three periods. Sometimes it will require three and a half periods, sometimes more. When there is a major struggle or work to be accomplished it will always take longer than expected. If we have a timetable and say I will struggle for X amount of time, and that will be it, then failure is inevitable. Only the disciple who endures as long as it takes will triumph in the end.

No good deed goes unpunished. Clare Booth Luce (1903 – 1987)

The Difficult Path

The Difficult Path

Continuing with Revelation we read: “And the angel which I saw stand upon the sea and upon the earth lifted up his hand to heaven, Rev 10:6 And sware by him that liveth for ever and ever, who created heaven, and the things that therein are, and the earth, and the things that therein are, and the sea, and the things which are therein, that there should be time no longer:” Rev 10-5-6

Spirit and matter, heaven and earth have joined in the disciple and as a being one with the soul lifts his hand as a symbol of commitment to the direction of Spirit as he sees it.

He commits himself to the idea “that there should be time no longer.” This sounds strange until we realize it is a mistranslation. It should read that he makes a commitment that “time should no longer be delayed.” Instead of stating that there will be no more time it is merely saying that the disciple is resolved to have no more delay.

No more delay about what? Next we read:

“But in the days of the voice of the seventh angel, when he shall begin to sound, the mystery of God should be finished, as he hath declared to his servants the prophets.” Verse 7

The seventh seal (chakra) is opened but now the disciple is having an awakening to the power and revelation from that center revealing the will of God. The disciple commits to following that will without delay and this will finish his quest for the mystery of God. He is now on the path toward oneness with God and such oneness is the greatest mystery declared by the prophets.

 Next we read: “And the voice which I heard from heaven spake unto me again, and said, Go and take the little book which is open in the hand of the angel which standeth upon the sea and upon the earth. And I went unto the angel, and said unto him, Give me the little book. And he said unto me, Take it, and eat it up; and it shall make thy belly bitter, but it shall be in thy mouth sweet as honey. And I took the little book out of the angel’s hand, and ate it up; and it was in my mouth sweet as honey: and as soon as I had eaten it, my belly was bitter.” Rev 10:8-10

In a state of oneness with God and Spirit the inner voice speaks to him and tells him to take the book. In other words, he is to accept the revelation of oneness to which he is awakened and accept the mission that he has with the sons and daughters of men. Without the usual delay he now accepts the voice immediately. The revelation and mission is sweet “in his mouth.”

He finds it sweet to teach and talk about his revelations and plans but in his “belly” it was bitter.

When the disciple fully digests all that he must endure to accomplish the portion of the will of God he sees he discovers he must go through many trials, tribulations and endurance. He finds that shall not be so sweet as talking about lofty philosophy but will be a bitter pill to swallow, as was the crucifixion with Jesus.

At the beginning the disciple cheerfully says “here I am Lord,” and at the consummation he is likely to say, “If it be possible remove this cup.”

After the realization of the bitter pill to be endured he is told:

“Thou must prophesy again before many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.” Verse 11

The disciple learns that not only will the bitter cup not be removed, but his work and trials are far from over. This mission he perceives is just the beginning of his work on a higher level than before. He will yet teach “many peoples, and nations, and tongues, and kings.” The bitter pill is a reminder that none of his future labors will be easy. His mission is the beginning of a struggle toward success that would frighten most seekers, but he must take courage, take the book out of the angel’s hand and move onward. In the end the reward and the joy will far outweigh any distress he endures. He senses this and moves onward no matter how great the risk.

Next we read: “And there was given me a reed like unto a rod: and the angel stood, saying, Rise, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein. But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.” Rev 11:1-2

John was given a reed like a rod for measuring. This reed was probably like a stalk of grass that grew in the area something like a piece of bamboo. The rod was probably about six cubits or nine feet in length.

Next he was told to “rise.” This word comes from the Greek EGEIRO which is often translated as “arise” but can also mean to “awaken.”

John had just taken the book out of the angel’s hand so he had already arisen. There is no indication that he was reclined in any way. This tells us that the alternative meaning of awakening must apply here and would read:

“Awaken, and measure the temple of God, and the altar, and them that worship therein.”

We can visualize someone measuring a building such as a temple and an altar, but he is also told to measure people.” How do you measure people with a rod? You could measure the height of one person, but how do you measure hundreds, thousands or perhaps millions of them?

Again, this tells us that the word “measure” may imply something other than the obvious. This word comes from the Greek METREO, which can mean “measure” in the normal sense but can also imply a judgement or to estimate a thing or matter.

A hint is given in its use in the following scripture:

“Judge not, that ye be not judged. For with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged: and with what measure ye mete (METREO), it shall be measured to you again.” Matt 7:1-2.

Notice that saying “with what measure ye mete (METREO), it shall be measured to you again,” is merely presented as another way of saying “with what judgment ye judge, ye shall be judged.”

What is the disciple to judge? Three things: (1) The temple of God, (2) the altar and (3) those who worship therein.

But there is something he is not to judge. The next verse reads: “But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.” Verse 2

 What does this all mean?

The disciple has just taken the little book and has finally comprehended his mission to be of service to mankind. Where shall he put his attention? He is to put his attention on, and understand in a way that gives him power to judge, the appropriate action to take in relation to the “temple of God.”

The temple of God is where God resides. And where is that?

Within ourselves. Those who seek God are temples of God and collectively form a great edifice.

Secondly, he is to judge the altar. And what is that? The altar is where the seekers go to communicate with God.

The true altar is the human heart. The disciple on the path of Christ is this to judge or assess the hearts of those he is to teach and to assist.

Thirdly he is to judge those “who worship therein,” or those who seek with pure hearts and good intentions to find the true spiritual path.

It is then interesting that there is another group he is not supposed to judge. These are the “gentiles” in the court outside the temple. These are they who do not seek God within, but seek a god without to rule over them. They are the masses who have not found the altar of the human heart as the only authority they need to find God.

He is told to not concern himself with them. They are not ready to find God where he truly is. He is supposed to put attention on those who are willing and able to sense the spirit of God within themselves. It is with these that he applies the principle behind the name of Jesus Christ, which means “anointed to deliver.” He thus seeks to teach and assist to deliver the pure in heart from the false Gods in the outer court.

The last part of verse two reads: “and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.”

Those who worship a God without will tread underfoot the holy city. What is that? The holy city is the gathering of lights or of those who find God within. Those who see a prophet, priest, king or book as the mouthpiece of god without will seek to destroy and disperse any gathering of those who find God within. They will seek to discourage them from finding God within and attempt to persuade them to worship god without. This power they have to diffuse the power of the lights will not last forever, but for “forty and two months.” This time period appears repeatedly and we shall examine it shortly.

Party Domination

Party Domination

After posting several chapters from my book, Fixing America it appears that it would be helpful to add some esoteric clarification of the two sides, the left and the right or the Democrats and Republicans.

To understand about the qualities of each party must realize that the Republicans are polarized in the male energy or along the line of Rays 1, 3 & 5. The Democrats are in the female energy or along the lines of rays 2, 4 and 6. Both use Ray Seven almost equally.

The Republicans will excel in their lines of influence and the Democrats in theirs. Let us take a look.

Ray One governs politics. Because the Republicans are polarized along the line of this ray, they see with greater clarity what is practical in the application of political thought. A book could be written on why this is true, but all I will do at present is make this statement.

It is certainly true that Democrats are no sleeping violets in the political world and this is because they dominate the sixth Ray which governs emotion and strong authority. They use these two ingredients of this ray to gain political power beyond the political process itself.

The Democrats dominate Ray Two of love wisdom. This has a powerful teaching quality. This is why most teachers are Democrats. They have a natural affinity for teaching and their emotional energy helps them to convey their message with conviction.

The Republicans dominate Ray Three of active intelligence and gives them more power to reason and discriminate between what will work and what does not work. This is why they dominate in business. A business cannot succeed on good intentions and good feelings but can only succeed if it has a workable marketing plan that is executed. This also causes them to excel in talk radio where the issues are analyzed.

The Democrats really dominate Ray Four, which is harmony through conflict and governs creative energies. They thus excel in creative writing, movies, broadcasting and most of the media. This gives them tremendous power to present their dreams and visions to the public.

Ray Five is the Ray of and Concrete Knowledge and is dominated by Republicans. This makes them better at analyzing data and coming up with true applications and workable facts. Science is mostly governed by this ray, but is influenced strongly by rays 2, 4 and 6 making the use of science a battleground between the parties.

Ray 6 is dominated by Democrats, as mentioned earlier. This gives then much greater power to convey their ideas with emotional appeal and greater authority. Even when they have a bad idea, they can convince the masses that it is a good idea because of this power.

Ray Seven is the ray of ceremonial magic and governs organization. Because it is a synthetic ray neither party dominates for long in the use of its power. They both use this ray to organize and get the most out of their rituals and traditions.

You’ll note that both Bush and Kerry were members and brothers in the Skull and Bones Society, which is governed by this ray. The Ray Seven influence appealed to them both.

Hell hath no fury like a bureaucrat scorned. Milton Friedman US economist (1912 – )

The Revelation of the Higher Self

The Revelation of the Higher Self

Here is the beginning of Revelation, chapter ten:

“And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire: And he had in his hand a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth, And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices. And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not.” Rev 10:1-4


Who is this angel?

Why was his face like the sun?

What is the little book?

What is meant by the right foot upon the sea and his left upon the earth? What are the seven thunders?

Why were the words of the seven thunders sealed?

Six angels have sounded their trumpets and the seventh is about to sound. Meanwhile, this powerful angel shows up just before the seventh trumpet. This angel doesn’t seem to be the seventh angel, which sounds the final trumpet, but represents a revelation from heaven that precedes the last angel and is closely linked with it.

Another thing to keep in mind is this. The number seven keeps repeating itself. We have already had the opening of the seven seals, or chakras, but after this we have the seven angels sounding the seven trumpets, the seven thunders and the seven plagues. The book also talks about the seven churches, seven spirits before the throne, seven eyes, seven horns, seven candlesticks, seven stars, seven lamps, seven heads, seven golden vials, seven mountains and seven kings.

It sounds like John is trying to tell us something about the number seven.

Seven is, of course, a very important number because our whole current universe is built upon the number seven, or the seven rays. Even so, our personal universe is built upon this number through the interplay of the seven rays through our seven chakras that make up our individual existence.

We have already noted the progress of the disciple opening the seven seals, but after this we have the seven angels coming forth sounding the seven trumpets. Are the two related?


You’ll remember that the seals were on a book, which must be read and understood. Opening the seal is just the first step. After the book is open it must be read and assimilated.

The opening of the seal represents access to the energy of the center involved. The blowing of the trumpet by the corresponding angel represents a core realization or awakening gained from the mystery of the center involved.

Each center has a number of petals. The heart, for instance, has twelve. The seal of this center is open when just a couple petals are unfolded, but the majority of the petals must be unfolded before the trumpet of the corresponding angel sounds and the revelation is realized.

The seven last plagues yet to come represent the stage where the disciple uses the full energy of the centers and all seven are completely unfolded and the understanding gained from them put to full use.

Now let us examine the verse one: “And I saw another mighty angel come down from heaven, clothed with a cloud: and a rainbow was upon his head, and his face was as it were the sun, and his feet as pillars of fire.” Rev 10:1

Heaven is often associated with the highest stage of consciousness or the highest center. When the seventh seal was open there was “silence in heaven.” Now we are approaching the seventh trumpet a great angel comes down from “heaven.”

In other words, this angel represents a revelation to the disciple. To discover the nature of it we just examine the additional clues.

The angel was clothed with a cloud. What does this mean? It helps to examine the use of the cloud in previous scriptures. For one thing, God revealed himself to Moses and the people in a cloud. A cloud rested upon Mount Sinai and was in the pillar of fire that followed the Israelites.

During the transfiguration of Jesus, the voice of God spoke from a cloud and later Jesus ascended into a cloud. In addition, we are told he will come again in the “clouds of heaven.”

It is interesting that one reference tells us he will come not in clouds, but “a cloud.”

 “And then shall they see the Son of man coming in a cloud with power and great glory.” Luke 21:27

This more closely corresponds to the coming of the angel who is a symbol of the coming of Christ. He who is the Christ will indeed come among us again, but there is also a coming of Christ that happens to each disciple on a personal level. When he is ready, the “angel of the presence” will visit him and it will be as real as if the Messiah from Galilee had come to his door.

When the seeker is visited, a cloud always stands between him and God for the glory of God is so overwhelming that it needs to be covered by a cloud, else the presence would be too powerful to withstand, especially before the disciple has reached relative perfection.

The cloud thus represents the glory and power of pure spirit diffused or stepped down so those of us in matter can partially comprehend that which is beyond matter.

The verse then states that there was “a rainbow was upon his head.”

You can’t have a rainbow without there first being a cloud. Without the cloud there would only be pure undifferentiated light, but the diffusion of the cloud differentiates the light of spirit into the seven colors or the seven rays that creates all there is in matter.

The rainbow represents the promise of God that the many will be gathered into the One and that behind the many is always the One.

“…his face was as it were the sun…”

If the disciple peeks beyond the rainbow and the cloud to the pure presence of this godlike angel he sees, not seven colors, but a face that shines in one bright light, like the sun.

The face of the angel represents the soul, the higher self or the solar angel of the disciple.

“…and his feet as pillars of fire.”

Remember that God followed the Israelites led by Moses in a cloud and pillar of fire.

The pillars of fire represent the power given to the disciple who realizes his unity with God. He now has great power to move toward spirit, even when he has descended to the lowest point in the world of matter.

 Life is an unbroken succession of false situations. Thornton Wilder (1897 – 1975)

The Little Book and the Seven Thunders

The next verse to consider reads:

“And he had in his hand a little book open: and he set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth,” Rev 10:2

The last scroll or book was sealed with seven seals. It was a great book with a lot of writing on both sides of the papyrus. This second book was very small and is not sealed but open and is readily available for John to consume.

A small scroll was not a document with a long message, a new scripture or anything of the like. Instead, such a scroll was used for a short message or announcement of some kind. When the disciple uses the intuition, and then begins to perceive the will of God, he finally sees what his mission is to be. He may have read many books in the past, in a quest to discover what he is supposed to do or to be. He wants to be of the greatest possible service to mankind, but when the moment of revelation finally arrives, the answer is reduced to a small number of words on a scroll. It may be just a sentence or two.

A thrill goes through the disciple. He is to finally find out exactly what it is that God wants him to do. No longer does he have to surmise and guess. Now is the time of discovery through the soul (the angel).

“…and he (the angel) set his right foot upon the sea, and his left foot on the earth,”

Remember the angel’s feet were as “pillars of fire” which represents great spiritual strength. The door to the soul is open and the higher spiritual life descends like a fire and anchors itself in the emotional and passionate part of the disciple (right foot on the sea) and finally blends the highest (spirit) with the lowest, or the physical nature (left foot on the earth).

The disciple is now “soul infused.” He and the Father are one.

“And cried with a loud voice, as when a lion roareth: and when he had cried, seven thunders uttered their voices.” Rev 10:3

When the disciple realizes his unity with God the inner voice is no longer a “still small voice” that one has to pay a lot of attention to even be sure it is real. Instead, the voice of God is his voice and the fire of the voice is swelling up in him to the extent that the voice is so profound and overwhelming that it is as if it is the voice of a lion roaring.

When the voice of God penetrates him to the soul the “seven thunders uttered their voices.”

Thunder signifies an awakening. Seven thunders tell us there is an additional awakening of the disciple throughout his whole being, which is governed by the seven centers. Every part of his life energy is stimulated by the voice of God and is awakened to a new purpose, unrealized before.

“And when the seven thunders had uttered their voices, I was about to write: and I heard a voice from heaven saying unto me, Seal up those things which the seven thunders uttered, and write them not.” Rev 10:4

The disciple has received a full realization of who he is and his purpose and he feels like telling the world but the voice of the spirit says no. “Write them not” – do not announce your mission. Seal it up in your heart and mind. Your mission will have no herald. Only your works will proclaim you. Thus, it must be, so the lights of the earth can discern he who has the consciousness of Christ from the many who have the consciousness of the ego.

Every great advance in natural knowledge has involved the absolute rejection of authority. Thomas H. Huxley (1825 – 1895)

Who are the Devils and the Sorcerers?

Who are the Devils and the Sorcerers?

We left off with this verse:

“And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk: Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.” Rev 9:20-21

So, who are the Devils and the Sorcerers?

It seems odd in this day and age to consider the idea that people still worship devils. It is true that there are rumors of a handful of Satanists who may openly worship the devil, or devils, but surely that wouldn’t include the next door neighbor or the friendly mailman – or could it?

The scripture speaks of those who worship devils, not as if there were a small handful, but almost as if it included the majority. But if it included the majority this would mean that your neighborhood grocer or barber could be included. Is this possible? Could seemingly harmless people we see around us be worshipping devils?

Then if we expand the interpretation to include that, which manifests within the advanced disciple, we come to an even more startling conclusion, which is this. Even the advanced disciple retains forces within him that leans toward the dark side or the devils of his nature.

How could this be?

Since we do not see the general worship of devils permeating society then perhaps, we must look at the meaning of the word. Perhaps believers do not understand what was written in the ancient scripture.

A reader did some research into the Greek word for devils. He writes: After looking up “devils” I found that in most instances the word comes from the Greek “DAIMONION” which is a ‘neutered’ (yes, neutered as in ‘no gender’) derivative of the word DAIMON which comes from the word DIAO: to distribute fortunes. Hmmmm.

With the ‘added info’, DAIMONION is a ‘demonic being’ a deity devil, god.

The word DAIMON also means a demon *or* a supernatural being of a bad nature. (End quote)

This word is used a lot in connection with the mission of Jesus. Time and time again he cast out devils and the people were healed. These were not people foaming at the mouth like the possessed in a horror movie, but many were just ordinary people who were sick. What was it that Jesus was casting out that was making the people ill?

To answer this question, we must ask ourselves what makes people ill in our day that is related to life force that the ancients may have called a devil?

It is basically accepted that when one is in good health he has a good flow of vital force, but when something saps that vital force and draws from it, competes with it, or prevents it from flowing, ill health results.

Let us take cancer for instance. A cancer is a life unto itself that competes with the life of the body and saps it of its strength. This could be called a devil in the fact that when it is cast out the person is healed. Is it possible that Jesus spoke to the life occupying the cancers of the victims in his time and merely commanded them to leave? He thus cast out the devil of cancer and healed the sick.

In addition to physical growths, we have negative spiritual growths or thoughtforms which plague the sick person. It is widely recognized that attitude is a powerful factor affecting health, but what is not so well known is negative thought and attitude can create the devil of a thoughtform occupied by a vampire type life form that can debilitate a person.

How does a thoughtform cause an illness? By a number of methods. I’ll just name three.

(1) By fear. The person’s fears draw negative astral matter that create a vehicle for a looming devil that reminds us again and again the words of Job.

“For the thing which I greatly feared is come upon me, and that which I was afraid of is come unto me.” Job3:25

(2) By suppression and denial. To pretend a problem, fear or thought does not exist takes a large expenditure of energy. Anytime there is such an expenditure of energy in the wrong direction the door is open to drain the life force.

(3) Placing subtle thoughts on the benefits of illness. Often when the person gets ill, he discovers that he gets more attention and sympathy from loved ones. He puts his attention on this benefit and thus allows the negative thoughtform to feed on his life energy.

People thus worship, or give attention to, devils that sap them of their strength. These negative thoughtforms need to be cast out for the body to be whole.

Foremost, we need to consider the devil that effects more people than any other, and causes illness spiritually as well as physically.

This is the devil of misplaced authority and is the key to understanding the Beast which shall be discussed in chapter 13 of Revelation.

God dwells within us. That is where He can be found, but when we place our attention on any life outside of God then that misplaced focus becomes the worshipping of devils.

One of the definitions of devils is a “false God.” He who takes the place of the God within may be a prophet, priest or king without who is seen as a spokesman for God and whose word are given the authority of God.

Giving authority to the words of man as if they are the words of God is akin to worshipping a devil, or a false God.

The last part of the verse compliments this subject and is easier to interpret.

“…that they should not worship… idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk.”

Many students interpret this to mean that humanity values their possessions that have no life more than they value the living God. There is indeed truth to this thought.

So, how do we interpret this verse as it applies to the disciple who has opened the sixth chakra and whose sight has pierced the world of the intuition?

The message is basically this. Even such an advanced disciple has only destroyed a third of his attachments to outward authority, methods and physical form. He still has a long way to go to let go of the lower world and dwell entirely in the world of Spirit.

The next verse reads:

“Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.”

The disciple who has opened the sixth seal (chakra) but not the seventh still struggles with returning illusion and is not fully tuned in to the will of God. He may not be a murderer or thief in the normal sense but he unwittingly supports a system that encourages:

[1] Murders. This can occur through supporting unnecessary abortions, misdirected wars on crime and drugs, corrupt prison systems that murders the souls of men, a lack of protection for the innocent from real criminals.

Another big item would be a misdirected war, especially a war for selfish purposes, which enslaves the souls of men. But this is not a black and white issue and the second key of knowledge must be used. A war can free the innocent and save lives. Over 80% of the American people were against stopping Hitler before Pearl Harbor. This delay and lack of support for Britain caused the death of many souls physically and spiritually. In this case it is obvious on hindsight that those who opposed going to war had the blood of the innocent on their hands and just about supported the extinguishing of an entire race of people – the Jews.

[2] Sorceries. This comes from the Greek PHARMAEIA. The modern words “pharmacy” and “pharmaceutical” come from the same Greek root as this word. In fact, one of the definitions of PHARMAEIA is “the use of administering drugs.” Some of these ancient drugs that were used by the doctors of the time were so powerful they were seen as supernatural in effect and the druggist was seen as a sorcerer.

Think not that only recreation drugs is condemned here. We must realize that legal drugs cause far more pain, suffering and death than do the illegal ones.

Is the world repenting of the sorcery of drug dependence? Not hardly.

As far as the disciple goes, he has usually mastered physical drugs and is not affected by them, but he is still attracted to the pull of the physical plane. This has an influence, like a drug, deluding him from time to time into thinking it has more to offer than the spirit.

[3] Fornication. In the Old Testament those who committed fornication were those whose heart was taken off the living God and placed upon non-living idols. In other words, those whose heart is linked to the possessions of the world are guilty of this.

[4] Thefts. In addition to regular theft there are many who take from the Creator that which is rightfully his. By focusing on the material rather than the spiritual side of life we steal from ourselves and from God that which is our true destiny.

This time, like all times, is a very good one, if we but know what to do with it. Ralph Waldo Emerson (1803 – 1882)

Out of the Mouth of Christ

Out of the Mouth of Christ

The next scripture to examine is:

“And thus I saw the horses in the vision, and them that sat on them, having breastplates of fire, and of jacinth, and brimstone: and the heads of the horses were as the heads of lions; and out of their mouths issued fire and smoke and brimstone. By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths.” Rev 9:17-18

Most students interpret this to be John’s method of describing modern warfare such as helicopters, warplanes, tanks etc. The description does match close enough to impress the modern-day student that perhaps John did see our day.

Even so, the literal student will get frustrated and error if he tries to find literal physical fulfillment verse by verse.

Sections of the book, not in any particular order, will have periodic physical fulfillment, similar to the writings of Nostradamus, but they go deeper than did he in that they give a unified presentation of the spiritual evolution of the disciple who is following the path of Christ.

We have established that the riders represent the “innumerable” angelic and intelligent beings with whom the disciple obtains contact through the Oneness Principle when he uses the sixth angel or the sixth chakra in the forehead.

These beings support him in a spiritual war where he slays the lower elements of his nature that distract him from progress.

These invisible beings, who have gone on before, have “breastplates of fire, and of jacinth, and brimstone.”

A breastplate is a piece of armor which protects the warrior from injury to the heart or a mortal injury. These spiritual beings are said to be members of “the church of the firstborn” are thus protected from the sufferings and distress that afflict regular humanity. This protection is expended to the progressing disciple who establishes communion.

The protection is threefold.

(1) By Fire. Fire here comes from the Greek PURINOS which is derived from the Greek PUR which can be translated as “fire, fiery, or lightening”. The word indicates a display of light and is a symbol of the passion through love that drives the disciple toward the presence of God.

By moving into the light the disciple receives protection from the negative forces of the earth.

(2) By Jacinth stones. These were normally dark blue in color. Blue is a symbol of the higher mind and divine thought which is light itself.

By tuning into the thoughts of God the disciple is not distracted by the illusion of lower distracting thoughts.

(3) By Brimstone. This seems like an odd thing to have on a protective breastplate until we examine the Greek. This word comes from the Greek THEIODES which comes from THEION which is the neuter of THEIOS which in turn comes from THEOS. THEIOS is interpreted as “Godlike” or “divine”, and THEOS is “God.

The third element that protects the disciple is the power of God within.

We thus see that the disciple is protected by “light and love and power,” as expressed in the Song of the 144,000.

Those unified in the thoughts of God ride upon strong horses of intelligent activity whose heads “were as the heads of lions.”

The lion is the most terrifying of all creatures for the unprotected person. It is also a symbol of the Christ consciousness as well as the sign of Leo, which represents, in its highest aspect, divine fulfillment and joy.

While Christ was here on earth, he not only had the God consciousness, but had a consistent inner fullness of joy no matter what was going on around him. Instead of seeking the source of this joy many feared him more than the dreaded lion. Why? Because his joy was so different than the weariness of the soul felt by his enemies. People fear, more than the lion, that which is different from themselves.

Out of the horses’ mouth issued forth “fire and smoke and brimstone. By these three was the third part of men killed, by the fire, and by the smoke, and by the brimstone, which issued out of their mouths.” Verse 18

Smoke is substituted for Jacinth here, but the symbolism is the same. Smoke is symbolic of thought. Divine thought in the midst of carnal logic is seen as suffocating smoke which can only destroy.

Those elements of the lower nature which must be dropped to open the sixth chakra are destroyed by fire (love), smoke (thought) and brimstone (divine power).

These three things come out of the mouth of the horse with the head of a lion (Christ).

The disciple, nearing the end of his journey, learns to speak those words which present divine love, light and power to the heart of man.

“For their power is in their mouth, and in their tails: for their tails were like unto serpents, and had heads, and with them they do hurt.” Verse 19

“Power” here comes from EXOUSIA which should be translated as “authority” here.

The authority of the disciple on the path of Christ comes not from any outer decree but from the words of his own mouth. His words are eternal words, which shall not pass away, and have an authority of their own as soon as they are spoken.

Authority also comes from the tail, which is like unto a serpent. This is the symbol of wisdom of the disciple after the kundalini is raised. His words and his wisdom are so strong that they “hurt” those who do not desire to move forward.

The next verses are

“And the rest of the men which were not killed by these plagues yet repented not of the works of their hands, that they should not worship devils, and idols of gold, and silver, and brass, and stone, and of wood: which neither can see, nor hear, nor walk: Neither repented they of their murders, nor of their sorceries, nor of their fornication, nor of their thefts.” Rev 9:20-21

Question: Do people in our age still worship devils & idols? Explain.

Youth cannot know how age thinks and feels. But old men are guilty if they forget what it was to be young. J. K. Rowling, Harry Potter and the Order of the Phoenix, 2003

Impression Explained and More

Impression Explained and More

Reader quoting JJ: “The Oneness Principle works through the science of impression, as taught by DK.”

He asks: Where is that taught by DK?

JJ: Quite a number of places. He uses different language than I do and he does not use the term “Oneness Principle.”

Here is one quote:

“The New Group of World Servers (disciples) are impressed by the active INTELLIGENCE of God; they translate this divine impression and step it down in two great stages, therefore, bringing it into concrete manifestation.”

Telepathy Page 46

Reader: I would think these are _not_ the same. I get the “impression” that the “science of impression” involves one entity “impressing” something to another and the “Oneness Principle” would more involving “tuning in” to universal principles.

JJ: I never said they were the same. The Oneness Principle and the Science of Impression are two different things as a car and a wheel are two different things. The car includes the wheel, but is not a wheel. The Oneness Principle includes and uses the Science of Impression, but is not the Science of Impression.

You are right in saying that the Science of Impression is used when a master of this principle impresses information on the mind of another, but its use extends far beyond that.

On the receiving end, the Science of Impression, which includes the science of receiving impression, is used for many things. It can be used by any sensitive person to receive a glimpse into the emotion and thought of another.

It can be used by the disciple to pick up a thought sent to him by a master if he should be so fortunate to have any contact with one.

It is used to pick up thoughts and thoughtforms generated from the group or ashram of which he is a part (often unrealized).

It can be used to pick up messages from his own soul.

The disciple can use it to open the door of the soul and tune into the universal mind or the “active Intelligence of God” as DK calls it in my quote. He can then tune into the universal Internet of which I speak and all principles are available to be impressed upon him. You could say that the akashic records are the great storage medium to be accessed through the Oneness Principle.

Before any of these things can happen, the disciple must become sensitive to impression. A good starting point is to practice being sensitive to the needs, feelings and thoughts of each other.

Reader: Unfortunately, you sometimes do not define your terms very well and the distinct impression is that you are “playing loose and fast” with your terms. 🙂

JJ: I think you’ll find that I am willing to be as specific as any spiritual teacher you will find. In cases like this where it may seem I am playing loose I will be glad to be more specific when asked.

Another reader comments: It’s been a day or so since I finished The Immortal I. I enjoyed it for the most part, but found some conflicting ideas. Like when John said you shouldn’t let anyone be mean to you, to stand up for yourself, else you’ll develop a fatal illness from the repressed, unhappy emotions you’ll experience if you tolerate it. John later says you’re supposed to submit to a situation you don’t like, because you’ll learn a karmic lesson and improve your soul. How does standing up for yourself work in harmony with submitting to abusive treatment for your karmic development? If you stand up for yourself, the negativity should end. That conflict confused me.

JJ: You are not presenting a clear picture of the teachings in the book here. For one thing, the word “submit” isn’t in the book.

Let me recap the principle in a nutshell. Suppressed or denied emotions have a very negative effect and can manifest as various types of disease, most notably cancer. One of the reasons this creates such a problem is that it is a lie to pretend you are fine or that you accept abuse when internally you are resenting it. Dishonesty always brings a negative effect to the evolving seeker.

On the other hand, submission can be done with no dishonesty. I daily submit to speed limits that I think are too low, but I do not suppress my feelings about it not do I deny what I think about it.

There is no conflict here even if a submission was discussed. Submission and denial are two entirely different things.

Vic: Then there was the Song of the 144,000 John taught Joe and Elizabeth, which, if they forgot to say several times a day, meant they’d be unhappy and irritable, even argue at night and go to bed miserable. I don’t understand the ‘pray or suffer the consequences’ concept.

JJ: I don’t understand it either. Are you sure you read the right book?

Neglecting to say the Song does not make anyone miserable, but saying it will uplift one’s spirit. That was supposed to be the message conveyed.

You are the first to get this message from the book. If others see this then perhaps, I need to do some rewriting.

Next the reader seemed to get the impression I associated the Song with piousness.

I don’t see where you get this idea from the book at all. The song has nothing to do with piousness. There is no mention of any punishment for not saying the song.

There is a benefit to saying the Song just like there is a benefit to exercise. If one does not exercise, he usually doesn’t see himself as being punished for it, but merely that he no longer has the benefits it gives. Even so it is with the Song – even so it is with any prayer or meditation.

Let’s take this statement.

“I said the Song Monday and Tuesday and felt pretty positive and things went well for me, but I didn’t say it Wednesday and felt irritable and a lot of things seemed to go wrong.”

One could take the books statements about the  Song and apply it to other things such as:

I listened to Tony Robbins tapes on Monday and Tuesday and felt pretty positive and things went well for me, but I didn’t listen on Wednesday and felt irritable and a lot of things seemed to go wrong.

I did my meditation on Monday and Tuesday and felt pretty positive and things went well for me, but I skipped it on Wednesday and felt irritable and a lot of things seemed to go wrong.

I said my prayers on Monday and Tuesday and felt pretty positive and things went well for me, but I skipped them on Wednesday and felt irritable and a lot of things seemed to go wrong.

I watched my blood sugar on Monday and Tuesday and felt pretty positive and things went well for me, but ate some candy bars on Wednesday and felt irritable and a lot of things seemed to go wrong.

I did my exercises on Monday and Tuesday and felt pretty positive and things went well for me, but I skipped them on Wednesday and and felt irritable and a lot of things seemed to go wrong.

Now in these various scenarios you don’t normally think of being punished for not doing the thing. Instead, you think of the positive effect if you do it.

It’s a common occurrence that when one begins to establish a positive habit and then stops that he will feel a marked difference in his daily life. Few would look at such a thing as punishment – and from whom? If there is a punishment there has to be someone doing the punishing. I have certainly never taught that God is sitting up there on a throne watching us for error and throwing down bolts of punishment when we make mistakes.

Our non-dualist friend returns saying: To be frank, I have heard more of these stories of people following the guidance of “voices” in their mind, instructing them too often to do the most horrible things. When interrogated, their explanation mostly was that they heard God telling them to do this.

JJ: There you go again; using the lower mind insinuating a judgement of me in the worst possible light. If you have the opportunity of giving the benefit of the doubt, making a positive judgement or a negative you will go the negative route. If you are trying to present a positive example of the results of your philosophy you are failing big time. Your statement is biased and illusionary for several reasons.

[1] I have never said anything in these posts that I recall about hearing voices. The Oneness principle works through the science of impression, as taught by DK.


[2] I have never instructed anyone to do anything harmful let alone horrible either by my own voice or any other voice.

[3] The statement is hypocritical considering that you come here preaching your own message of from God which must be from an inner voice of some kind.

Reader: Politics, in any way or from any wing is part of the beast’s manipulation of humankind.

JJ: So Lincoln was in league with the Beast when he freed the slaves. So was Martin Luther king when he worked for civil rights.

Reader: “Politics, in any way or from any wing is part of the beast’s manipulation of humankind.”

JJ: Then explain why you accept DK when he writes the following:

“The work of the Manu is occupied with the science of divine government, with politics and law.”

“The divine Christ in the human heart can express itself in many different departments of human living-in politics, in the arts, in economic expression and in true social living, in science and in religion.”

“What this divine purpose may be the Christ Himself will reveal upon His arrival; the focal point of His activity will be dependent upon the medium used by Him to implement that purpose-known only to Him and to the senior members of the Hierarchy. Should politics be the medium through which He best can serve, that then will determine the locality of the focal point.” Externalisation of the Hierarchy, Page 274

DK seems to think that there is a good possibility that Christ will be a politician (or work with politics) when he comes. Who knows? He may even write a book on politics. Will you then condemn him as being spiritually inferior and in cahoots with the Beast?

The object in life is not to be on the side of the majority, but to escape finding oneself in the ranks of the insane. Marcus Aurelius Antoninus (121 AD – 180 AD)

The Third Part of Men

The Third Part of Men

The next verses of Revelation to interpret read:

“And the sixth angel sounded, and I heard a voice from the four horns of the golden altar which is before God, Saying to the sixth angel which had the trumpet, Loose the four angels which are bound in the great river Euphrates. And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men. And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them.” Rev 9:13-16

The question:

What are the four angels bound in the river Euphrates and what holds them bound?

First, have we seen these angels before? Most probably. Remember this is the sixth angel that is sounding its trumpet and we saw this angel at the opening of the sixth seal where it is written:

“…and he cried with a loud voice to the four angels, to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea, Saying, Hurt not the earth, neither the sea, nor the trees, till we have sealed the servants of our God in their foreheads.” Rev 7:2-3

Here we see the four angels were bound so they could not hurt the earth, the sea and the trees. They were bound until the disciples are sealed “in their foreheads,” or the sixth chakra is functioning.

What holds them bound?

The great river Euphrates. What does this mean?

This river represents the life energy that feeds the lower self, or lower quaternary. Because only the element of water is mentioned here (water symbolizes emotion) we are to understand that the emotional self or the solar plexus is the main binding agent.

The emotional self is the cause of the problem of glamour, which is enabled by the great power of the ego that needs attention and recognition to survive. The awakening of the third eye through the raising of consciousness (sounding the trumpet) causes the disciple to realize that there is a greater source of life than that which feeds the lower self. He discovers that if the higher self is fed the lower self is also fulfilled.

Seeing beyond the emotional world for the source of life looses the four angels, or forces that feed the lower self. He hears the voice of God within, not only from the higher centers but as it now circulates through the lower nature as well. He sees that all life is one, that all energies are spiritual if they are directed toward spirit. He never fully realized this before. He always saw the lower nature as an enemy to God, but now sees that the four forces are “loosed” and are no longer directed toward selfishness, but can serve higher will through he energies of the soul.

In order to insure this right direction they must be commanded and directed by the awakened “sixth angel.” Thus does the disciple use the sixth chakra to direct that which used to be bound. The four angels were bound because they were randomly destructive without this higher direction.

The next two verses read:

“And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men. And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them.” Rev 9:15-16

This is one of the more terrifying parts of the Book of Revelation for modern believers. For one thing, an army of 200 million men was impossible in the days of John for that was close to the population of the entire planet at that time, including women, children and people abroad.

But now in this age where the earth has six billion inhabitants such an army is possible. Some Bible students fear that the Chinese could raise such an army, or perhaps the United Nations.

In addition, it is frightening to read that this great army will slay “the third part of men.”

What do you think? Did John mean this to be taken literally, or is there another meaning?

What is it?

Let us examine verse 15:

“And the four angels were loosed, which were prepared for an hour, and a day, and a month, and a year, for to slay the third part of men.” Rev 9:15

It is interesting that even though the horsemen do the slaying that it is the four angels who are over the horsemen. When they are no longer bound these are the ones responsible and in charge of destruction.

There were four different angels made ready for four different times. One was made ready for “a year.” In other words, there is a certain year in the life of the disciple where this angel will do his work. The second angel is prepared for a work to be accomplished in a month, a shorter period; the third for a certain day and the final for a certain hour.

As the disciple moves forward in spiritual evolution at first it is difficult and time consuming for him to let the old thoughtforms that no longer serve him be destroyed.

The two longer periods of a year and a month are connected with the force of maya as it deludes us and pulls us toward matter through the physical body and the life-giving energies of prana that flow through it.

There is a certain year that it dawns upon the disciple that he needs to control his body and take good care of it.

There is a certain month that it dawns upon him that he must direct his passions and sex energy toward the higher way.

The third angel directs the solar plexus and the emotional world of the disciple. This creates the problem of ego and glamour for him.

There is a certain day that the disciple realizes that his ego and emotional self must yield to spirit and pure reason.

The fourth angel governs the lower mind and throat center. This creates the problem of illusion where even the sincere disciple is tricked into incorrect thinking through flawed foundation beliefs.

Illumination that dispels illusion comes quickly when it does come. Within a certain hour of intense reflection and experience his world comes falling down and he realizes that much of what he has dearly believed was wrong.

All this change leads to what? The scripture says “to slay the third part of men.” Now surely the disciple is not going to rush out after achieving some enlightenment and slay a third of the population.

To find the answer we must ask what is actually slain?

Whenever the disciple moves forward in spiritual progress he finds there are always elements that held him bound that must be slain.

When the Christian reads about the slaying of the third part of men he will generally think that God is allowing this to rid the earth of sinful people to bring a more righteous balance.

If this impression from reading the verse is true then how do we apply it to the disciple? What must be slain to bring more balance in his life?

What are the two energies that govern us and throw us in and out of balance?

These are the energies of male/female. These are expressed as sending and receiving, teacher/student, radiant/magnetic, action/acted upon, aggression/victim etc.

There is a time arrived at by the disciple where he realizes that many of those who have dominated his life with male energy and have been his senders, his teachers and his authorities have been completely wrong. As he reflects he sees value in two thirds of what he has received, but one third of “men” (male energy) he has previously received must be eliminated or “slain’ no longer having any life to distract him again.

As he rejects and slays the third part of the male energy governing his life he then explores his female side and his nature becomes more nurturing, gentile and loving.

Next we read:

“And the number of the army of the horsemen were two hundred thousand thousand: and I heard the number of them.” Rev 9:16

To slay a third of the thoughtforms and ideologies which held him bound the disciple not only uses the assistance of the four angels, but of a large number of horsemen.

How large is the number? It is difficult to tell. The number is literally translated as “two, ten thousand, ten thousand.” The word “times” is not in the original but implied. If we use that implication, we can translate it as 2X10,000X10,000 which equals 200 million.

Now “ten thousand” comes from the Greek MURIAS which is not always translated as 10,000. It is sometimes rendered “innumerable” or “myriad.” Myriad is derived from this Greek word. For instance, when Jesus was teaching before a large crowd we read: “In the meantime, when there were gathered together an innumerable (MURIAS) multitude of people…” Luke 12:1

In this case here the number was not exactly 10,000, but the writer was merely expressing the idea that there was a large number of people.

Another interesting point is that the number MURIAS was the largest number for which they had a word in that day. If you were attempting to describe something beyond your power to count you could just use this word. It corresponded somewhat to our word ‘infinity” today.

Now let us look at what John was saying. He said that the number of horsemen was an innumerable amount times or plus another innumerable amount and then double that. When we put it that way it sounds like a person merely trying to emphasize that the number is beyond the imagination.

What are the horsemen? As we said earlier a horse symbolizes intelligence working through the lower nature. A rider on the horse directs that intelligence toward a desired end.

That desired end is the neutralization or destruction of at least a third the lower energies which pull the disciple toward matter or deceive him. As the disciple makes a major leap toward spirit he finds he is not alone on this path. With him are the four angels and an unlimited number of souls who have crossed this bridge before him and lend him support through the Oneness Principle. He cannot see these beings, but he feels their support.

Note the use of the word in the following scripture: “But ye are come up unto mount Sion, and unto the city of the living God, the heavenly Jerusalem, and to an innumerable (MURIAS) company of angels (messengers). To the general assembly and church of the firstborn, which are written in heaven…” Hebrews 12:22-23

We see that the inhabitants of heaven are described with the same number as the number of horsemen who assist the disciple in slaying his lower nature.

Now is it possible that a physical externalization of this prophecy could happen, that an army 200 million men (or an immense number) in modern weapons could surface to destroy a large part of humanity?

Yes, there is a good chance this could happen sooner or later, but remember that that these prophesies contain those “things which must shortly come to pass.” Rev 1:1.

It’s been 2000 years now and if we wait long enough most anything could eventually happen. All the things in the book did shortly come to pass on the inner planes in the lives of disciples who were alive in the days of John. Fortunately, they are still coming to pass today in the lives of a much greater number than ever before.

Dialog on the Atom

Dialog on the Atom

Reader: I don’t know how plainer I could have made it when I criticized JJ’s narration of the quantum experience as using an out of date scientific model where atoms were compared to “beach balls” (beach ball is JJ’s phrase)… that quantum theory rejects these early 1900’s ideas as naive.

JJ: Quantum theory says that subatomic particles and electrons exhibit the properties of both a wave and a particle. Some scientists say this is an illusion, but assuming it is correct when an atom or electron exhibits the property of a particle it would indeed have a shape. When photons or electrons are observed in the double slit experiment they make an impact as if they were small round balls.

Would actual photographs of individual atoms that look like small beach balls do the trick???

Go to this LINK:


Reader: Sheesh. A retired real estate monkey lecturing a Ph.D. in chemistry with all the confidence of a fool.

That has to be good comedy. (c;

Hey Einstein, take another look at the site and pay attention to the dancing atom in the upper right corner.

“Dancing” is a key word you are missing in your dissertations on the quantum world. There are a couple of other fundamental ideas of quantum mechanics you miss too, but perhaps we can cover that another day. You might take a look at “The Holographic Universe” by Talbott… it covers in layman terms some of these other things.

JJ: The dancing atom has nothing to do with quantum physics but proves my previous point that even stable atoms like gold have slight polarity. It is obviously a slight imbalance in charge that is causing the atom to move back and forth. (Link no longer available)

To say this is some type of quantum movement is illogical. If it were, the movement would be a much greater distance and many atoms (instead of a single one) would be disappearing into waves and reappearing. Only one atom out of hundreds is even moving.

Your point to me was I was wrong in stating that if one were to descend into the atomic world that one would see the atoms as objects. Yet here we have an actual photograph of atoms that are like many beach balls grouped together. How you can deny the shape of what can be photographed is a mystery, especially from one who claims superior learning.

How much more obvious can it be that if you were small enough that you would see the same beach ball like objects as in the actual photograph? After all, quantum theory tells is that even subatomic particles are solid when they are observed.

I’m sure you will soon bow out of this argument soon to minimize being embarrassed by a monkey.

Reader: I will repeat myself here again at the science 0.00101 level…. “It is generally accepted by quantum scientists that the Quantum world DOES NOT follow the laws of the marcro non-quantum world.” Please read that sentence until it is understood. Please notice the words “DOES NOT”.

JJ: This is completely understood by me and does not refute anything I have said.

Reader: So, JJ says, “looky, looky, here some photo’s!” Sheesh. Does JJ know how those are imaged? Do these guys even claim that these have quantum relevance… are quantum representations? So, now I am supposed to explain how quantum scientists even view such photo’s? They would laugh at JJ’s points as complete crap…. missing the point… wide of the mark. Why? Two words: QUANTUM UNIVERSE.

I gotta go. But, when I get a chance, I will type out a few comments on the difference between disinformation and misinformation. Maybe that will help. JJ’s nonsense is misinformation run amok… he’s way in over his head in regard to his nonsensical over-simplified scientific claims … if it was that easy, we scientists could complete our training in a week.


It doesn’t matter whether there is a quantum or holographic universe, form is form. If you look at a picture of a beach ball then it has the shape of a beach ball whether it is a hologram or not, or if quantum is at play or not. In fact, all form in the universe is the result of formless quantum energies uniting to create form. You could even say that your body operates on quantum principles but that doesn’t mean I cannot see it.

We have an actual imaged photo of atoms that look like little beach balls and you have failed to explain why I am wrong in saying they look like beach balls. Sigh.

Your response is to say I do not understand how an electron microscope works. I understand it as well as I understand how a digital photo or a film photo works. You only need to know one thing. The form you photograph is the form that exists in this reality.

If I were you I would be embarrassed to cut and run without explaining why you disagree with me or why I am wrong.

The reader then quit the group. I thought this was sad because he had been a member for years and often caused controversial, but interesting dialog. Even so I couldn’t let him get away with an unjust attack because he is a PhD.

Another reader asks some questions: As we have a handwriting specialist in this group, I was wondering if I could pose a couple of questions.

My six-year-old daughter loves going to school, except for one thing. At the moment, they are teaching her class how to do joined up writing of which she simply hates.

JJ: This is good. This shows she has an independent spirit at an early age. Look at how you were taught to write and see how different your writing is now and this will indicate how much your independence has taken you away from what you were taught is the correct ways. Cursive is the normal writing taught in schools because it is deemed nice looking and faster to write than printing – at least for a child.

It would be awkward to teach more than one system of handwriting in today’s schools, but once a system has been learned the student should not be discouraged from developing his own style.

Yes, a person can change his personality by changing his handwriting, but neither joined letters or printing is seen as good or bad.

One who joins his letters is more of a team player and one who separates them like to do his own thing and be his own boss.

Fortunately for people like me we now type most of our words so our words are easy to read. Good English is the difficult part now.

Men of ill judgment oft ignore the good

That lies within their hands, till they have lost it. Sophocles (496 BC – 406 BC)
