"Here's another question. In my previous theology (prior to ET conviction -- by which I mean a firm belief that they exist and that they are pertinent to our planet and to our spiritual advancement at this juncture in history), I anticipated a time in our not-to-distant future, in fact I believed it would happen in my lifetime, after our purging by calamity, group humiliation and divine redemption, a new society on this earth -- one which Joseph Smith called a return of the paradisiacal glory, the Edenic state but with enlightenment. I believe that state will be devoid of a telestial level manifestation on the earth because as a group we will have evolved collectively from being telestial to being terrestrial (born of the spirit, though not necessarily overcoming all things to a 'Celestial' level, though there will be many souls of a celestial level among us, indeed the 'church' that provides spiritual leadership to the planet in its continual group evolution will be of a 'celestial' advancement).

"In that advanced state, I envisioned free commerce between angelic and divine beings with humans in the flesh -- 'heaven on earth,' as it is called theologically."


The LDS [Latter-Day Saints -- Mormons], as well as most Christians, believe that there will be a great spiritual change when Christ comes. Either the earth will be changed into a paradise like Eden (after great destruction of the wicked) or the righteous will be taken to some paradise after the earth is destroyed where the wicked burn in hell.

This will not happen as expected (and the future will bear me out on this) but there is a seed of truth in part of this.

If the disciples of the world do their part then the earth will be turned into an Eden compared to what it was 2000 years ago when the predictions originated. In fact, the quality of physical life is an Eden today in the wealthy nations compared to life 2000 years ago. Imagine taking one of the disciples of Jesus into our age and taking him to supermarket where he could buy products and produce from all over the world. Then take him for a ride in a car and plane. Next take him home and show him how you cook on an electric stove and in a microwave. Finally settle down with him and watch a football game and movie on TV.

This disciple would be amazed indeed and may feel he has entered a paradise beyond that which he imagined existed.

But, if we do not blow ourselves up first, this is just the beginning. A couple hundred years of additional progression will make tremendous progression so eventually all the world can have relative abundance and become a paradise compared to times past.

The question is: What about the great spiritual difference that is supposed to come when Christ comes? Aren't we getting worse spiritually rather than better?

It is an illusion that humanity, as a whole, is deteriorating spiritually rather than progressing. Those who think so are not examining the evidence of history.

Let us look at the practices of ancient Israel who were more advanced spiritually than their neighbors.

Now this was the condition of the righteous. The neighboring countries were much worse. They sacrificed children to idols, and tortured their victims with much more cruelty than the Israelites, who merely killed their enemies.

Up until a few hundred years ago all wars were wars for conquest where the winner sought the property and land of the conquered. This changed in the 20th century. In World Wars One and Two all the democratic winners wanted was for the subdued nations to behave themselves. After World War Two we left West Germany, Japan and Italy much better off than their original state while not stealing their land or taxing them. Later we did the same thing with South Korea and now (if we succeed) we will do the same with Afghanistan and Iraq.

This is unprecedented progress for humanity.

DK [Djwhal Khul] makes the interesting point that the Red Cross, that we take for granted, is an organization that could not have existed just a few hundred years ago. This and other benevolent organizations can only exist today because of the advance in the spiritual consciousness of humanity as a whole.

Now admittedly, there are always a minority of the human race who are of a low spiritual order and are capable of as great of atrocities as the worst of them from the past. Saddam Hussein grinding up dissidents in a meat grinder or dipping them in acid for entertainment is a good example. But, overall, humanity has moved forward spiritually, not backward.

That said, the progress continues and when Christ comes again he will take the most advanced of humanity and teach them. These will be the seeds of the new race, the sixth root race or the consciousness of the terrestrial or paradisiacal glory. This sixth root race will be gathered and synthesized out of all the races and is more related to consciousness than it is physical features.

It will take many thousands of years for this paradise through higher consciousness to reach its apex as it spreads throughout the earth. As this consciousness progresses there will be a great increase of communication with the lives in the higher ethers and the spirit world.

Then, several million years in the future the final race will appear which will be the Divine Hermaphrodite -- the merging of male/female energies. This will inaugurate the celestial consciousness of the earth where the inhabitants will seem like Gods compared to humanity today.


"So, here's the question or point. If we as a planet are so inferior spiritually at this time to some of the advanced ET races that fly around our galaxy and universe, and our next, pending, on the brink step of advancement is to mingle freely with God (the diving hierarchy that oversees our planet, with one male-female couple at its head) and with angels in our midst, you would think that those ET races advanced from ours would already be at that level of commingling with God and angels -- and therefore that angels and divine beings, being in their midst, are aboard their air craft, instructing, discussing strategy -- if not visibly ever present, at least spiritually manifest."


Remember this. Cortez and his men were much more advanced technologically than were the American Indians, but which were more advanced spiritually? Cortez gave them cheap beads. They gave him precious gold. They shared, he plundered. Even so with ET's. It is entirely possible that many of them are not that spiritually advanced - unless they have mastered the spiritual technology necessary for interstellar flight where they can materialize in the physical. This takes a high degree of spiritual evolution to accomplish.

It is not the job of ETs to teach us or to save us. This must be accomplished by humanity itself and teachers who evolve from humanity. Those who are expecting a fleet of spaceships to show up and save us from ourselves are deceived. Before there can be any public interplay with ETs we must first reach a much higher degree of spiritual progress. If we get in a crisis we must fall back on the teachers of the race guided by the Spiritual Hierarchy of Christ and his disciples.

Sterling asks how other dimensions and universes effect us theologically.

The higher planes of our own world effect us, but the fanciful other universes and dimensions has about as much direct effect on us as the Andromeda Galaxy presently has on your consciousness - which is negligible.

All lives wherever they are working are on their next step in progression just as we are.


"Who are they (the ETs), theologically?"


Who are we? The answer is the same.


"If our awareness of our visiting ET neighbors can help solicit their mediation in keeping us from blowing ourselves off this planet, then an understanding of who they are theologically is invaluable. Furthermore, if some of the ET neighbors hanging around have malevolent designs on us, viewing us as mere chattel for harvesting and slave labor, using our world governments to exercise such control over us, then soliciting the assistance of the benevolent faction would be appropriate, to level the playing field."


No physical ETs are in on a conspiracy to control the earth and they are not in cahoots with the government, but the Dark Brotherhood is in this system and some are cooperating from other systems. These operate through subtle communications and influence and not as ETs, except as impersonating them if it serves their purpose.


"If our planet is slated for wipe-out in 2012, by an asteroid on a fixed course, for example, and life will be as impossible here thereafter as it is on Mars now, and an escape is necessary, then it seems that soliciting benevolent ET assistance in preparing for some sort of exodus would be prudent."


Our planet will still exist as is after 2012 though there will be points of tension. The main thing we have to fear is ourselves and disciples need to work with solving problems more than expecting the end of the world, or being saved by ETs.


"My theology does not see the earth becoming permanently uninhabitable after 2012. I do believe that the earth will be transformed, and that 2012 could be a purging event that does the trick."


The transformation will be one of slow and steady progress (with a few spurts forward and backward) rather than a giant purging that leaves only the spiritually minded left.

If there is a giant World War III then many of the good and bad will be destroyed leaving a mixture of the good and bad left over to struggle for power again.


"All things physical have a spiritual counterpart, and vice versa. The earth went though a physical baptism by water with the flood of Noah. It will go through a physical baptism of fire in the days not far ahead -- in our lifetime, I believe."


The real baptism of fire is very far into the future, but we could have a minor one before the new age.

One of the problems with prophesy is that the visionary will often see far into the future as if it is the present and write about it as if it will happen tomorrow. When seeing through the cycles of time it is difficult to predict in real time when events will manifest. The visionary must descend to his concrete mind anchored in time and put everything together.


"I cannot help but think that that baptism will require every bit as much of an escape vehicle as those who survived the flood of Noah had an escape vehicle -- complete with seeds and animals to repopulate the earth after the baptism by water."


Of much greater concern (in the category of natural calamities) for the immediate future is the coming Ice Age. The earth has one about every 11,000 years and one is due soon. Some think it will begin anytime. I think it will start within 150-200 years. This gives us some time to prepare for Gathering of the Lights into floating (as well as possible airborne) cities on the oceans where they will be out of harm's way of this and other earth changes.


"So also, I would think that there will be an escape vehicle humungous in scope, to repopulate the earth after its baptism by fire. Some individuals may be spirited elsewhere, transplanted. But I would think that the ideal fate of our group evolution would be to stick around here and repopulate Earth. I cannot fathom that such a feat could be accomplished without the assistance of advanced ET races willing to assist."


It is up to the Hierarchy of the earth to guide and save us. If we destroy ourselves then we will have to start over. It is unlikely all human life will be destroyed even if we do our worst. If this were to happen we could then be reseeded or stimulated by the Brotherhood [of Light] from other systems.


"What about the cities that were taken up -- Enoch, Salem, Melchizedek -- with a return slated after the earth is cleansed? Was the purely a function of a divine miracle moving people and soil? Where did they go? Or were there ET races involved in those transplantations, moving a whole society from this planet because they had transformed high enough spiritually?"


I believe the city of Enoch was not physically taken into heaven. The truth is indicated in this scripture:

"And he beheld, and lo, Zion, in the process of time, was taken up into heaven. And the Lord said unto Enoch: Behold mine abode forever."  (Moses 7:21)

Notice, that it was through "a process of time" that the city was taken into heaven. If a large land mass were merely removed and translated this would have been a quick occurrence. Why did the ascension of Zion take a process of time and why is it called God's "abode forever" if it is only a terrestrial order?

The answer is that the people who resided there achieved spiritual liberation and either died or ascended to the spiritual city of the New Jerusalem which John tells us in Revelations is God's abode. Those who find the Heavenly Jerusalem have found the city of Enoch.

After a period of time when all the lights of the city died or ascended then it seemed that Zion was no more or it had fled and only the telestial order of the dark and dreary world remained.


"Did they (E.T.'s) have a Jesus Christ in their past history? Did they have a Moses? Did they have a Noah? An Adam? A Joseph Smith? A latter-day David? An anti-Christ? 666? How ubiquitous are these motifs in the progression of civilizations elsewhere in the universe?"


Each Earth-like planet with intelligent physical life will have inhabitants going through a similar process of evolution to ourselves. A handful in the galaxy are ahead of us in technology and consciousness, many are behind us. In saying this, one needs to keep in mind that there have been past universes, galaxies and solar systems where previous humans achieved relative perfection and mastery of the physical worlds. However, in this round of creation human evolution is yet young in the universe. Our Elder Brothers from a past round are now our Gods and tutors .

The earth is one of the few physical planets which has received extra stimulation from liberated masters of past creations.

The inhabitants of each planet eventually receive soul contact and one in particular will master Soul and Spirit to become an example to all of the Christ consciousness and thus attain the position of Christ on the various worlds. Many humans have similar experiences and also different ones in the course of their evolution, even so do the races of the various planets. In the end (of their evolution) they all learn the same lessons and come to the same conclusions.


"On a general progression chart, how far along are we in relation to the Extraterrestrials involved heavily with our planet? 1st grade? 5th?"


If, by Extraterrestrials you mean all people living on the various planets whether they fly in spaceships or not, the answer would be we are in the top 95 percent.

If you are only talking about ETs in ships which includes those in the etheric matter then our state of progression is much lower by comparison.


"What sort of technologies can they bring to us as we engage them? Health remedies, energy solutions, transportation solutions, pollution remedies, spiritual teachings?"


Virtually none. All progress we have made is due to our own efforts and the efforts of the Masters to assist us. The current crop of Masters have all come from this earth or been here for some time.

An exception to this is after times of great destruction there will be assistance in seeding the earth for renewed growth.

There is one great truth from the Star Trek series and that is the "Prime Directive." The great lives in the universe have learned that the less they help the better is the end result and the more profound is the learning of the various people on the varied planets.

One of the dangers we face on earth, because of the little assistance we have received, is that we now have the capacity to blow ourselves into the stone age but not the maturity to insure we will exercise the proper self control move safely into the new age.

With a little luck we hope to move into a new age of peace and avoid an end of the world scenario that so many accept as out fate.


"Perhaps the most valuable result of all education is the ability to make yourself do the things you have to do, when it ought to be done, whether you like it or not. It is the first lesson that ought to be learned."
