Principles of Discovery, Part 17
Energy Follows Thought
Today’s Principle of Discovery is, “Energy Follows Thought.”
This finishes the Principles of Discovery for now. The reason I say for now is I am sure we missed a few and more may be added later.
This is an ancient esoteric truism but very useful in the discovery of truth. In fact, there is a book’s worth of truth in the statement itself. Rather than write a book on this principle we shall briefly cover it as it relates to finding truth.
The question is this. How does this principle aid us in truth’s discovery? The answer is quite simple. If your thoughts are directed toward truth then energy will follow. If spiritual energy flows in the direction of truth, consciousness will follow. When consciousness, attention and energy are focused on the truth, then the truth is much easier to discover than when this is not the case.
Do not most people want to know the truth? Do not the majority have thoughts on truth with the energy following?
Unfortunately, this is not the case. Most people believe they would like to know the truth, but the majority of their energy and thought is on achieving their desires. The desires at the top of their list are generally centered around numerous things other than truth.
Among them are:
* Taking care of family.
* Increasing income.
* Getting bigger house and newer car.
* Getting a more enjoyable job.
* Getting in shape.
* Spending time with friends.
Generally, all of these items draw more attention than does the truth. If a pleasant truth comes along, fine, the average person will accept it, but he’s not going to spend much time going after it, especially if that truth may upset the way he looks at life.
Socrates gives us the great example of the importance of putting truth high in this group. One time a student came to him and said, “Oh great teacher, I want to know what you know. Tell me how to be as wise as you are.” Socrates took him out in a lake and unexpectedly grabbed him and plunged him under the water and held him under for about a minute or two, then he pulled him up. The guy says, “What did you do that for?? I was dying for air! I asked you how to be wise like you.”
Socrates replied, “When you want knowledge and understanding the way you just wanted air, then you’ll be wise as me.”
To make the breakthroughs necessary to be one of the few who independently discover truth the seeker will need to want it as did Socrates. If Socrates were given a choice between a new discovery or a new chariot, which do you think he would choose? Most in that day would have chosen the chariot and today a new car, but the person with the Socrates mindset is he who will put truth first. Energy will soon follow and then discovery.
The discovery of truth will bring a feeling of inner satisfaction and lasting value that cannot be matched by the acquisition of any material thing.
Questions on the new earth
Question: How is the new earth related to the 1000 years of peace mention in your treatise on the Book of Revelation?
The new earth mentioned has nothing to do with the thousand years. This part of Revelations is in chronological order and we have already covered the 1000 years, and then moved on to the release of negativity after this period is over. Finally, we come to a final battle between good and evil. This will be millions of years in the future but before this final battle we shall see numerous correspondences of such a battle.
It will be after this major culminating conflict that will finally divide the graduates from those who do not pass this earthly course. Then, as DK confirms, 40% of humanity will be moved elsewhere.
After this cycle passes the Beast will have little power, but people will still be deceived through glamour and illusion. It’s quite likely that in future cycles the Beast will surface again though, but the book of Revelations does not go into this.
We will still be on this physical earth for millions of years until the divine hermaphrodite manifests and dominates. The main thing that will make a new heaven and new earth for us in our future are the changes in the consciousness of humanity.
Some time after the 40%, or the failures leave, the 60% on earth will be transferred to a duplicate earth made of more refined spiritual matter.
Question: Why would we want to extend life in the physical world?
We will want to extend life in the future for the same reason we want to extend it now. We have things we want to experience and accomplish – plus we enjoy being alive.
Question: Why wouldn’t everyone just exist in the higher realms/worlds?
For the same reason they do not do it now.
We will still be on this same physical earth in the interpretation I wrote of Revelation. Why did you think otherwise?
No matter which realm we are in disciples will seek to lift up others as well as move themselves forward. It is an eternal order.
In the New Heaven and New earth (which is still physical) there will be many grades of accomplishment and those who are further along upon the path will still help those on this earth who want to progress. Progression and Becoming will never cease.
The failures that will move to another planet will have to learn to help each other and the new souls they blend with.
As a general principle those in the higher realms work in the higher realms. Those in the lower realms work in the lower realms. Work in the higher realms has a ripple effect that filters down to us and there is some contact between the worlds. But the actual work is mostly done in the world where we reside.
Question: Where do Shamballa and the Hierarchy fit in?
Shamballa is the head center and the Christ and his Hierarchy are the heart center. Humanity is the throat center of the planet. Shamballa is built of higher etheric matter, sometimes called the true physical matter.
Shamballa is the head center now and will continue to be in the more progressed, or new earth. There are many higher lives working in higher spheres not directly connected with this earth as is Shamballa and the Hierarchy.
“Men occasionally stumble over the truth, but most of them pick themselves up and hurry off as if nothing ever happened.” Sir Winston Churchill (1874 – 1965)
