Steps in Progression
Question: Are there higher entities than the Hierarchy of the Earth? If so shouldn’t we seek to follow them for maximum progression?
Our progression is not dependent on any one outside entity. I have taught over and over that one must abide by that which is received through the soul – that even if it appears that God himself manifests to you and tells you otherwise – then you must disregard it if it is not in harmony with the inner being. One must only follow another entity, no matter how great, if his teachings reverberate within the highest parts of our own god selves.
For instance: When Lech Walesa challenged the Soviet Empire and led Poland to independence my soul within expressed joy and union with the man and I gave him all my inner support. But then there were other things later he did my soul was fairly neutral on so I put my inner attention elsewhere.
Example two: Our governor here in Idaho wants to trim unnecessary spending. My soul says yes and I support him 100 percent.
Question: Wouldn’t we be following a path of diminished freedom if we are not following the highest lives?
The opposite is true. When people attempt to take a larger step than their consciousness will allow then they are in danger of being deceived by the Dark Brotherhood.
If you climb a 20-step ladder and attempt to climb more than one step at a time you are likely to fall off and hurt yourself. If you try to take five steps at a time you are deceived and a fool. You will accomplish nothing.
The beginner on the path will look at the top step and imagine the great view he will have and want to jump up there in one leap, but will accomplish nothing.
Only by being humble and realizing one is on the first step can the seeker take the first step.
We must expand our ring-pass-not where we are, not where we are not. Freedom for the worm is the discovery of better soil where he can be nourished. He has no concept of what freedom for an advanced human is. The worm knows nothing about nuclear fusion which we are currently working on to bring humanity greater freedom. It would be silly to attempt to communicate such a concept to a worm for it has nothing to do with his next step.
Even so, we are like worms in relation to some of the higher lives. The expansion of their freedom has nothing to do with our next step. It would only be a distraction for them to even attempt to explain it to us.
The only entities that can help us are those that are a step or maybe two above us. If they are more than two steps ahead, then their attention concerning their freedom is on such a different level that it would be beyond our understanding – just as an earthworm cannot understand the internet and the freedom it gives us.
The maximum movement going up a ladder is to always take the next step. It diminishes progress and freedom to attempt more than you can climb and to have an accident and fall off.
The maximum joy is not found on the top step. The joy is in the journey. There is no freedom if you miss the great experiences of taking the steps on the path that take you through the beautiful scenery of life.
Question: How do you differentiate between those on the dark and light side?
That which is darkness interferes with the seeker taking his next step. That which is in harmony with the Brotherhood of Light helps us move forward in taking our next step forward toward greater freedom, light and understanding.
I glean from your previous comments that you have a great desire to skip the hard work and take a giant leap to some ultimate reality where no more progress will be needed. This attitude is common among beginners and hinders them from taking that real first step on the path to discipleship.
May you see where you are and work on your next step rather than attempt to make a giant leap into the abyss. Or, to put it another way… If you are going to eat a Big Mac do not attempt to eat it in one swallow or you could choke to death.
Question: If you are not following the highest entities does this mean you are following the Dark Brothers?
This is completely untrue and misguided. No one is on the dark side when he is attempting to take his next step in progress and filling the measure of his creation. Would we say that a beaver is serving darkness because he does not understand human concepts? Of course not. If he is fulfilling the measure of his creation then he is serving the light is his own way just as a human disciple is. Correspondingly, if a human is taking his next step, he is serving the light in his own measure just as the Solar Logos would be.
If a person is moving forward in his progress then he is not on a dark path. A person takes the dark path when he ignores the path forward and reverts to reestablishing the past as the main standard. I’ve written on this in quite a bit of detail so do not wish to repeat myself too much here.
On the other hand, we sometimes take detours from the path, but still arrive at the destination, but just later than planned. For instance, let’s say I decide to take a trip from Boise to Salt Lake. Then half way there I decide to go off the main route and go to Preston, Idaho where they filmed Napoleon Dynamite. I stay there two days, then backtrack and move onward to Salt Lake. If you really wanted to argue just for argument’s sake you could say that the detour to Preston was a necessary part of the trip because we have to look at the trip as a whole.
Realistically, one would have to concede that the trip was intended to take five hours and the trip to Preston was an unplanned detour that delayed the arrival.
Nearly all men can stand adversity, but if you want to test a man’s character, give him power. Abraham Lincoln (1809 – 1865)
