A Higher Form of Teaching

A Higher Form of Teaching

Those who have overcome death we call the “Masters.” They don’t teach in the same manner as we are used to being taught. They just do not pour information into you because it is understood that even if they were to put the mysteries of the universe in plain book form that very few if any would understand them.

The teaching method often used for aspiring disciples is a concept called “The Hint Principle.” The way this works is that the teacher gives you some data around the principle that he wants you to know, but not the principle itself. You must take the hints and figure out the principle by contemplating the “seed thoughts” in the light of your soul using your intuition.

The time between major hints should be 3-7 days with a week being the optimum. In the beginning many will be frustrated that the knowledge is not just given to them and others will want more hints in a shorter period of time, but after a period of time when enlightenment is felt the wisdom of this teaching method will be seen. It is comparable to the person who has earned a fortune starting with nothing to one who has inherited one. The first is much wiser in the use of money and if the world takes it away from him he can earn it all over again.

If you should die before you learn all the principles you will take the knowledge with you and be all the more prepared in the next incarnation. If knowledge is just given you, you may lose it at death.

The First Principle of Knowledge: “Who and/or What Am I?”

Hint: To say God, the Soul, the Higher Self is not enough. To understand what you are you must also understand what you are not.

For instance, a person may buy an expensive car and like it so much that he begins to identify with it to the extent that if the car is damaged, he or she feels pain. We understand, however, that we are not our cars, but a car is a vehicle that we use to explore the physical world.

There is the real YOU that uses vehicles to explore the worlds of form. What are the vehicles that most people identify with and think that is their “Selves,” but in reality is not their Selves at all?

“Who and/or What Am I?” seems to be a very basic concept to a general seeker, but the full understanding is not known to any person living on the earth in a physical body. Nevertheless, a series of revelations are acquired by seekers as they tread the path home. The basic understanding of a seeker is that our true self is an immortal self with no beginning and no end — that we are either God or a part of God and that we have no limitations. This is all well and good but it doesn’t shed much more light than the Christian phrase “three in one and one in three” espoused by the “born-again” religious person. There is a very deep truth that is to revealed there, but he has no idea what it is.

There is an ancient occult statement that says “words veil truth.” The truth of who you are is veiled by the pet phrases everyone recites. When a disciple understands the truth behind the words and writes them down to the best of his ability, he will know that, even though they seem to be plain, few will understand it. On the other hand, when a second disciple who also sees the truth behind the words communes with the first disciple on the subject then there will be a soul-to-soul communication, and the first will know that the second understands. At this point the understanding of the student and teacher become one.

Some believe that we are already immortal. All living beings are immortal in the sense of the continuance of life, but few beings have overcome physical death. Those who have can allow their bodies to be destroyed and recreate them according to their desires — just as the Christ restored his body after it was destroyed. Can you do that yet?

“I Am that I Am” is another answer sometimes given to the question at hand .

The phrase “I Am That I Am” originally comes from the Bible. After wandering in the desert herding sheep for forty years, Moses did a lot of contemplating about God, and what he would ask him if he should ever get a chance to talk to Him. When he finally got his big chance — what did he ask?

He asked God for His name.


Because in those days the name revealed something about the destiny or the character of a man or woman. It still does today but on a more subconscious level.

To this great question that Moses spent decades contemplating, the answer was “I Am that I Am.”

Or was it?

Think about it. This statement makes no sense at all, and all the scholars in the world have not shed any light on it. Neither has any channeling or New Age book even though many use the phrase on a regular basis.

The reason it does not make sense as quoted is because it was a mistranslation.

In the Hebrew it reads “EHYEH ASER EHYEH” and is usually translated as “I Am that I Am.” My writings render it “I Am Becoming.”

Let us quote the verses using the Concordant Version which I deem to be the most accurate English translation available:

“Yet Moses said to the One, Elohim (God): Who am I that I should go to Pharaoh and that I should bring forth the sons of Israel from Egypt?

Then He said I shall come to be with you…” Ex 3:11-12

Some manuscripts use the word EHYEH here so this verse could read:

“Then he said I AM BECOMING with you…”

Now this is an interesting thought. God not only becomes that which he decides to become within his own being, but he is BECOMING with and through Moses.

In other words, Moses was told to not fear because part of God’s BECOMING was to take place through the oneness of Moses and God working together with one purpose as one being. This is also true for us. God works through each of us and BECOMES who He decides to be through us so long as we follow the Spirit of God within each of our inner selves.

Let us continue with the Concordant translation:

“Now Moses said to the One, Elohim: Behold! When I am coming to the sons of Israel, and I say to them, The Elohim of your fathers sends me to you, then they will say to me, What about His name? What shall I say to them?

“Then Elohim spoke to Moses: I shall come to be just as I am coming to be. And he said thus shall you say to the sons of Israel, I-Shall-Come-to-Be has sent me to you.”

Then in the footnote alternative renderings are given. Let me quote:

“I shall come…coming to be. Literally: I AM BECOMING, or as traditionally rendered, I am that I am.”

Now to verse 15:

“And Elohim said further unto Moses: Thus shall you say to the sons of Israel, Yahweh, (Jehovah) the Elohim of your fathers, the Elohim of Abraham, the Elohim of Isaac and the Elohim of Jacob, has sent me unto you. This is my name for the eon(age), and this the remembrance of Me for generation after generation.”

Scholars agree that Yahweh is a more correct rendering of the Tetragrammaton (YAV HE VAV HE) than is Jehovah. So keep in mind that Jehovah and Yahweh are one and the same.

Now when God says “this is my name,” was he talking about Yahweh or I AM BECOMING?

An interesting note here is that even though the name Yahweh (or Jehovah) seems to be a new revelation to Moses it is a fact that the name was mentioned over 160 times in the book of Genesis (before the birth of Moses) But then, the Bible seems to contradict itself in Exodus 6:3

“And I appeared unto Abraham, unto Isaac, and unto Jacob, by the name of God Almighty, but by my name JEHOVAH was I not known to them.”

So why did God say this when Jehovah was written over 160 times in the book of Genesis?

Part of the reason for this is that I AM THAT I AM and JEHOVAH are essentially the same. Just like ISN’T is short for IS NOT, but the meaning is the same. JEHOVAH is short for I AM THAT I AM.

So why was this revelation of the name to Moses such a big deal when the Israelites already seemed to have the name?

The answer is that they did not have the meaning of the name which is also true of this generation, for the world today does not have the meaning either, for it takes a revelation to understand completely.

What God really said to Moses was:

  “I AM BECOMING that which I wish TO BECOME. Go tell Israel that HE WHO IS BECOMING has sent you.”

This gives us a substantial hint as to “Who and/or What Am I?”
