A reader has a question on these two previous statements I have made:
 If a teaching just seems to make no sense do not trust it until it does make sense.
 Plant a seed thought in your mind and heart, and feed this thought with contemplation and meditation. Observe the fruit that comes forth, and accept that which is sweet and registers with your soul.
Question: Should we plant a thought or teaching then if it makes no sense?
It would be a waste of time to plant seeds that your common sense definitely tells you are wrong or non-sensible. For one thing it could not even be impartially planted. For instance, you could not give a good planting or fair trial to the idea that the moon is made of green cheese for this is entirely unbelievable and to plant the seed takes an experiment in belief.
What kind of things can we plant then?
Often in life we come across a crossroads of belief. There are two things that could be true and you’re not sure which, if either, is true. Either belief could make sense but you do not have enough knowledge to confirm.
A popular one is whether or not there is a God. Many arguments have been made on both sides. Now you cannot prove a negative such as atheism but you could experiment with planting a belief in God. Plant the belief and act for a while as if it were true and see what grows within you.
Then if you receive a positive on this you can go further by choosing a number of alternatives with which to experiment such as:
Is God a composite being of which I am a part, or a single individual who sits upon a throne?
Is God more like the Old Testament Jehovah who orders women, children and gays killed when it suits him or a God of love as taught by Jesus?
Is Jesus the God of the Universe?
Is Jesus a special creation or is he a brother just more advanced than the rest of us?
Will those who believe in Buddha have the same chances of salvation as a Christian?
Did Bush make the right decision in invading Iraq?
I threw that last one in to illustrate the importance of an impartial mind in getting results. Obviously, if you already have a strong opinion the seed is not going to get properly planted. In order for this principle to work one has to have an open mind to the possibility that either side of the equation could be correct. If the seeker cannot apply this principle with an open mind, it would be a waste of time to use it.
A reader makes a good point we should not reject any idea out of hand because our internal reaction may be negative. Yes, we should always be open to all possibilities, but to effectively plant a seed as noted in this principle of discovery the idea must be credible enough to at least temporarily consider it.
Question: Is this a true statement: The Christ cannot reappear down here on Earth, until the Lights manifest him to reappear.
An important point to realize within the overall picture is that he who is the representative of the Christ energy for this earth, the one who appeared through Jesus, is an individual entity with free will just as you and I are. He is merely further along on the path.
He can decide to appear wherever he wants, but, all indications are that he wants to appear when the opportunity is right.
Think of a parent deciding when he will visit his kid’s class at school. If the kid is invoking his father by requesting again and again that he come at a certain time then the probability of him appearing at that time may be fairly high. On the other hand, the parent may decide to come when the kid is not expecting it and appear at a completely unexpected time.
DK tells us that the Christ is waiting for the world to acquire a little political stability before he comes so he can work more productively. There also has to be a significant number of people ready to receive what he has to offer.
“Each Pilgrim on the Road must carry with him what he needs: a pot of fire, to warm his fellowmen; a lamp, to cast its rays upon his heart and show his fellowmen the nature of his hidden life; a purse of gold, which he scatters not upon the Road, but shares with others; a sealed vase, wherein he carries all his aspiration to cast before the feet of Him Who waits to greet him at the gate.” Glamour, A World Problem, Page 51
