Truth and Inclusiveness
If someone is overweight and you blurt out that they are fat your are telling the truth. If they complain about your wording just stating that you are telling the truth is no excuse for your words. In addition, the person will want to avoid you and you should understand why. If you are really concerned about the person being fat instead of stating the truth in the most offensive way you could suggest some healthy foods that will make them feel and look better.
If I were in your situation (which I have been numerous times in my life) instead of accusing others of not being inclusive, blocking you, not willing to work with you etc I would ask myself why this is happening and what I can do about it? There are those who like your spunky personality and maybe you haven’t reached out enough to individual persons. Maybe with the right approach you can achieve more than you think.
To be inclusive does not mean you take everyone within your aura. If this were the case one would accept a marriage proposal from an abusive person. Inclusiveness balances against the principle of discernment and selection. For instance, we do not invite those who seem to have no soul contact into this group as it would destroy the possibility of creating a molecule. On the other hand, the principle of inclusiveness will cause us not to reject anyone because of race, sex, personality etc who is really trying and wants to be included. Then eventually the working molecule will only include those who can tune into the group soul contact, overlook personality flaws and see all others in the molecule as souls.

Heroes of the Past
Just look at history for the truth of this one. Jesus was crucified as a criminal and only had 120 followers after his resurrection, Galileo was charged with being a heretic, Ignaz Semmelweis who warned the world that doctors needed to wash their hands because of some invisible microbe was sent to a mental institution. Lincoln was called a tyrant by not only the Confederate states but by about half of the people in the North and the press, specially the New York Times, attacked him without mercy comparing him to an ape.
The great people of the past were rarely appreciated at the time but on hindsight it is easy to see that what they were doing was right. Even so it is today. Many initiates are struggling against the grain and seen as evil when they are working on the side of progress and reason.

The Kingdom Within
Concerning Luke 17:21 which states: “the kingdom of God is within you” where some say within does not really mean within – let me add this
“Within” in this verse comes from the Greek ENTOS which definitely means “within” or “in the midst thereof.” It is derived from the Greek word EN which implies inward, the opposite of EKTOS meaning without.
Both ENTOS and EKTOS are used in this verse:
“Thou blind Pharisee, cleanse first that which is within (ENTOS) the cup and platter, that the outside (EKTOS) of them may be clean also.” Matt 23:26

Positive and Negative Poles
Every force corresponds to the two basic ones which are positive and negative. The positive and negative combinations produce many differentiations but, still, all such differentiations are reduced to two, which at the end of a cycle of creation are reduced to the one.
The positive corresponds to male, sending, radiation, light and forces that push from the center outward such as the dark energy which is causing the expansion of the universe.
The negative corresponds to female, gravity, magnetism, love, the strong and weak force.

I posted this quote: “Fulfillment comes when the seeker realizes that there is a plan, catches a glimpse, and decides to play a part in its manifestation.”
To this a reader said, “there seems to be a negation of free will, if we’re all involved in some grand scheme. And therefore, whether we take part in it’s manifestation or not becomes irrelevant.”
Free will does not mean you have all power. A part of the universal plan are the cycles of night and day, but because you cannot prevent the sun from coming up does not mean you do not have free will. You have free will within your sphere of power, consciousness, or ring-pass-not.
Lesser intelligences always operate within a larger sphere of a plan of a higher intelligence, but if that greater intelligence is in the light then the seeker will have free will within his own sphere of power.
And what we do does matter because the greater lives depend on the lesser to manifest their portion of the plan, just as you depend on the cells in your body to function.

The Coming Revelation
A reader pointed out that DK did not say specifically that the new teachings after 2025 would come from him. I did some searching and it seems that he did not say who would be giving out the teachings. Here are two quotes I found about the coming teachings. I know I’ve read about more than thus in the past, but can’t find them at this time. I suspect that DK will play a major roll in the coming revelation.
“I can, however, attempt to give you certain concepts, relationships and parallels which may serve to close this section on astrology and lay a foundation for future teaching around the year 2025.” Esoteric Astrology, Page 589
“Occasionally (usually once in a century after Their Conclave at the close of the first quarter ) there is the imparting of a more advanced body of teaching. This teaching will only be recognised by a few of the foremost disciples in the world; it will, however, prove to be the ordinary form of occult teaching during the next developing cycle. It is this type of work which I have been endeavouring to do with the aid of A.A.B.” Discipleship in the New Age, Vol 2, Page 318

To understand what a grievance is. Perhaps first one must understand what it is not.
If a person considers another person to be a distracting personality that he wishes to ignore that does not mean he has a grievance. I encounter many people I want to ignore but have absolutely no grievance against them.
If I go to buy a car and encounter an irritating high pressure salesman I will not have hurt feelings, but just go on to another lot and buy a car there. If I meet the guy in a grocery store and he starts up a conversation still there are no hurt feelings.
Hurt feelings come when you think you have been wronged and you blame the other guy in a way that causes negative feelings to well up inside of you. If, for instance, you have negative feelings you cannot dispel about people who have blocked you then that would be a grievance. If you do not and can care less about their reaction then there would be no grievance.
If someone who has blocked you but able to participate with you in a gathering but without hurt feelings then there would be no blockage of energy.
The fact is that all of us are attracted to some types of people and not to others. There are many people I want to avoid, but none of them have power to cause me to have a grievance.
To see the Christ in another does not mean that you do not recognize personality differences, but it does lead to overcoming grievances.

The Real Threat
Good article by Davis Borsos and I share his concern, but it amazes me that his biggest worry is human caused emissions when the planet has had over ten times the current level of CO2 and life has thrived. No where does DK warn of manmade climate change. Let us look at what he does warn us about:
“The release of atomic energy has not only put into human hands a potent force which will inevitably bring in a new and better way of life, but also a terrible weapon, CAPABLE OF WIPING THE HUMAN FAMILY OFF THE FACE OF THE EARTH. … The responsibility for its control must lie in the hands of the men of goodwill. They must control its destiny and make it available along constructive lines for the use of men everywhere.” Problems of Humanity, Pages 81-82
Again and again he talks about the saving power of goodwill that must be established between peoples, nations and groups. China, Russia, North Korea and others pose a terrible nuclear threat and goodwill is our best weapon to defuse the situation.
DK’s teachings on goodwill is what we need to promote, starting with our own political houses which need to quit demonizing each other.

3 thoughts on “Selected Smaller Posts”
Uh, it’s obvious that I need to pay more attention to proofreading my posts — as editing features are limited — and I make LOTS of “typos” — apologies.
d while I am posting comment on this (multipart) post — my intention is to address/respond to the ENTIRE series of piosts here @ FreeRead.Com — and more @ a public thanks for JJ taking the time to posting his “thoughts” on a wide variety of timeless, timely — new or old — topics.
As a “reader” of JJ of some 15+ years — I believe the greatest benefit of “reading” — or RE-reading his “articles” — is by way “of correction” — in that while i may be aware of some “principle” — and believe I “understand it” — I often find that upon a “re-read” or “consideration” of what is being presented —- that I discover that I now “understand it” differently.
Also, i find that more often than not that this “new understanding” leads me into MANY different “directions.”
Again, I suspect that this is what I find “attractive” — or am “attracted to” the Principles I encounter.
Make of “It” — as you Will. (giggle)….
Appreciate your comments.
