Johann, it seems that the essence of your question lies in this statement you made:

"There must be something in the great rest otherwise the world would not be here or in other words, the world would not have become."


During pralaya physical form, as we know it, is folded up and seems to cease to exist. But does this mean that nothing exists? No.

DK [Djwhal Khul] said it well when he said:

"All these mark the points for the disappearance of the unit into pralaya. We need here to remember that it is always pralaya when viewed from below. From the higher vision, that sees the subtler continuously overshadowing the dense when not in objective manifestation, pralaya is simply subjectivity, and is not that 'which is not,' but simply that which is esoteric."

When all things are folded up we never have that "which is not" but "that which is esoteric."

There are two correspondences to look at for understanding:

The first is sleep.

Every day we have a mini pralaya when we go to bed. In sleep we have not disappeared into oblivion, but we have ascended to a higher plane. We still exist and are active on another plane. When we awake we cannot remember all that went on because the activity was outside of the physical brain.

Even so, when the great rest occurs we have a larger correspondence to sleep. There is not a condition of no existence, but an existence that is "esoteric" or hidden from that which is below.

The second correspondence to consider is the permanent atom as taught by DK. Each of us has a permanent atom for each of our bodies. This atom goes with us after we die and has all the programming of our past bodies of previous incarnations.

The physical universe also has a permanent atom with all the programming within it to create a new one better than the last. The last part of Book 4 of "The Immortal" illustrates this, but remember that this was a description of the physical plane and there are numerous higher planes, the next one up being the astral.

Light and love never completely disappear but always exist within the permanent atoms and within the subtle planes. The power of decision also always exists. As evidence of this is the realization that each creation is the result of this power operating behind the scenes.

Ruth asks:

"How does Justice become much more Scientific?"


When someone seriously breaks the law today they are either given a large fine or thrown in jail. Sometimes they are given community service but that is often ineffective.

Non violent criminals should not be fined and the money given to the State, but they should be forced to repay their victim with interest plus some extra to the State to pay for overhead. This way the victim gets some benefit. He gets nothing if the person is just sent to jail as it exists today. If the criminal does not repay the victim he could then be sent to jail.

Jail today is often just an education camp that teaches people how to be better criminals. They are called correctional facilities, but concentrate very little on the correction part. This should be more vigorously pursued with more schooling and even some Dale Carnegie type courses.

Some correctional facilities have internal businesses, but the inmates usually make something like 25 cents an hour. They should pay them a reasonable salary and then take most of it away and give it to their victims and pay for overhead. This would give them a continual sense of loss that would remind them of the effects of their crime.

But the pride of working and getting paid and then paying for their crime with their labor would better prepare them for the outside world.

Much could be written on this, but that's all I have time for now.

The basic question by "SH" is:

"Was there a family organization before we were born that is different than what we have on earth?"


To understand the organization of souls in the higher worlds we must look at the principle involved. The principle is this:  "Like gravitates to like."

The higher the worlds you go to the easier it is for this principle to operate. In the higher mental the gravitation is almost instantaneous, but by the time you get down to the physical plane the magnetic force has to pull through sluggish resistance. The principle still applies but it takes time. Eventually light will gather with light and darkness with darkness but in the present, light and darkness are mixed together on earth in what seems to be a random combination.

Take a look at your family on earth, for instance. How many are searching for light as you are? I'm sure you see quite a strange mixture when you think of it.

After death, material forces of separation have less power and you will gravitate to more like-minded souls. This will be good if you are in the light, but no so pleasant if one is in the dark.

The goal of some teachers in alignment with Purpose is to reorganize the Lights of the earth so they can blend their energies on earth as it is in heaven so peace on earth goodwill to humanity can manifest.
