12th Key of Knowledge
Larry Writes: So is the name for the Third Key of Knowledge Right Perception or Eternal Words?
The name is “Right Perception.”
Maybe JJ, can give us hints or clues to future keys until the time comes when he revels one at the Gathering.
I don’t plan on that but now the Twelveth Key is out I can guide you to a better understanding of that.
Question: What is the name of this Key? If you listened to the audio you should be able to figure it out.
Remember what was said in one of the books. If the essence of the keys were just given out few would understand or grasp the depth of their meaning. I gave this one out but no one has given much evidence of understanding it.

Three Sets of Keys
The Name of the Twelfth Key is, “The Word is God.” Ruth mentioned it in passing and Dan specified it.
Is WHY Martha believed primary to this effect? If she had believed just because she had seen him bend spoons (perform miracles) before (ie via beastly authority), as opposed to belief due to soul contact, would this still have generated the necessary power? In other words, does the source of/reason for the belief/faith matter? Or is it enough just to believe (regardless of reason)?
There is great power in the blending of male female energies of two individuals as demonstrated by Jesus and Martha. However there is also great potency in the individual blending with a higher life through the soul. In this case he would be the female (no matter what his or her sex) and the higher life would be male.
What is a Word which is God?
Why is the Word called God?

The Word Which is God
Expand Messages Expand Messages
Let us concentrate on the first question.
What is the Word Which is God?
Dan told us what the Word does which is:
“That which initiates motion (a cause).”
No one has told us what the Word is even though I clearly stated it in the audio. This illustrates that just giving out the information is not enough. There must be interplay to anchor the understanding of the Keys in the minds of the students.
Larry W writes:
All Words are God/Gods/God’s, because words are sounds/vibrations and all sounds/vibrations proceed from God’s decision to manifest.
Excellent answer Larry and your post as a whole was perhaps the finest you have made. We will return to some of those points later.
The answer is that ALL words are Gods.
Question: What is the difference between a Word that is spoken or written and seems to produce no effect and those that do? Are some Words Gods and others not Gods?
Again, I ask. What is the Word which is God?
Dec 9, 2013
Let me start over. My question was not specific to Martha/Jesus/Lazarus but more generally about whether the source of belief/faith is important to the generation of the male/female power.
I was under the impression that Martha’s belief that Jesus could resurrect Lazarus even after dead more than 3 days was what allowed him to raise Lazarus.
Even if, as you seem to indicate, and instead Jesus actually communed with a higher life, just for the moment lets assume Martha was the female to Jesus’ male. So, assuming this was the case, does the SOURCE of Martha’s belief matter?
Would it still have generated the power even if she had believed in Jesus due to beastly authority (however it may have come about)? Or ONLY if she believed on him due to communing with the God within (soul contact, etc)?
The power of belief is powerful whether it be the belief supporting a beastly authority or a belief inspired by soul contact and verified within.
I would suppose that Martha had such a strong belief because the works of Jesus were verified to her through soul contact, and Jesus sensed this, thus giving her belief more power.
On the other hand, faith healers who set themselves up as beastly authorities sometimes perform real miracles through the power of the belief of their followers who may not have soul contact.
Words are Gods and have great power for good or evil and may be used by a beastly authority or a master.
This brings us to Tom’s question:
is it ok or not to use God’s name in vain and other swear words…in the past awhile back you claim swear words do no harm.
Just because words are gods does not mean that they are all directed toward something desirable or good.
The Bible says that God created good and evil and words bring about good and evil in the world.
The work of the disciple is to use words and thought constructively.
Dec 9, 2013
The Question: What is the difference between a Word that is spoken or written and seems to produce no effect and those that do? Are some Words Gods and others not Gods?
The group has given some good insights and comments but no one has answered the question to completeness.
You have said that all words are gods. Yes, this is true, but what is the difference between a Word that is spoken or written that seems to produce no effect and those that do? Corruption, good and evil, male and female have nothing to do with the core answer.
Let us take the word “rock”. It is what it is. It is not corrupt or uncorrupt. It is neither good or evil, though it can be used in either direction.
This word could be written on a piece of paper and buried in the ground. In this situation the word is as if it does not exist. Words were written on the Dead Sea Scrolls and buried also and were as if they did not exist for 2000 years.
What calls the word into existence in this sphere of activity?
Good comments Judy, especially this, “Good is presupposed and evil is an after by-product or symptom or distortion of the original intent of Good.”
An example is the work of a computer programmer. The good is the desired work the program will do. The evil “by-product” are the imperfections that drive users crazy. However, the ed result after the release of numerous versions will be a relatively perfect or “good” creation.
No one has gotten it yet. Larry has come the closest with the word “use.”
Hint. Words can be gods not only to disciples, masters and seekers, but also to those who are totally ignorant and of low evolution.

Gospel of John
The writings of John were all originally penned in the Greek so it is not productive to translate them back into the Aramaic. All scholars agree with this. Here is a quote from the Catholic Encyclopedia.
The Fourth Gospel is written in Greek, and even a superficial study of it is sufficient to reveal many peculiarities, which give the narrative a distinctive character. Especially characteristic is the vocabulary and diction. His vocabulary is, it is true, less rich in peculiar expressions than that of Paul or of Luke: he uses in all about ninety words not found in any other hagiographer. More numerous are the expressions which are used more frequently by John than by the other sacred writers. Moreover, in comparison with the other books of the New Testament, the narrative of St. John contains a very considerable portion of those words and expressions which might be called the common vocabulary of the Four Evangelists.
What is even more distinctive than the vocabulary is the grammatical use of particles, pronouns, prepositions, verbs, etc., in the Gospel of St. John. It is also distinguished by many peculiarities of style, — asyndeta, reduplications, repetitions, etc. On the whole, the Evangelist reveals a close intimacy with the Hellenistic speech of the first century of our era. which receives at his hands in certain expressions a Hebrew turn. His literary style is deservedly lauded for its noble, natural, and not inartistic simplicity. He combines in harmonious fashion the rustic speech of the Synoptics with the urban phraseology of St. Paul.
So your argument that the Gospel of John was originally written in Aramaic is that the Gospel of Matthew may have been? Does not compute.
It is possible that Matthew Mark and Luke may have been written in Aramaic, even though most scholars believe that even they were written in Greek. There is no way to tell for sure.
But John’s writings are a different matter. He uses style, phrases and words peculiar to the Greek and the Gospel of John was written around the turn of the century when most church writers used the Greek. They are about 99% sure that the original Gospel of John was written in the Greek.
The earliest known fragment of the gospels is one of John written just a few decades after the actual book was penned by John and guess what the language was?

Back to the Key
Ruth came as close as anyone is probably going to get to the key word and that is one must “accept” the word to manifest its power.
Even here this word does not fully describe the process. The word “embrace” brings us a little closer to the mark. Even better is this. The seeker must become one with the word to manifest the word.
Again, one of the best examples of how this works is the movie Rocky II. Rocky’s wife wanted him to give up boxing and in the midst of their tension she became ill and was in a coma. As he sat by her side he decided that if she lived and didn’t want him to fight that he would give up the quest and live a normal life.
Then she miraculously came out of her coma and as he started to explain his decision she grabbed him, firmly looked at him and told him there was one thing she wanted him to do. She wanted him to go back in the ring and win. When se said the word “win” I felt visibly affected as it was a very powerful scene and you could feel the potency of the effect on Rocky. He not only accepted the word, but embraced it and became one with it which gave him the power to manifest it in deed.
Now we know the standard definition of a word as found in the dictionary, but the meaning is much more far reaching as far as the Word is God is concerned.
Question: What is the full meaning of the Word as it applies to this key?
We are talking about the twelfth Key, The Word is God. The Trinity of Key words are accept, embrace merge.
Also, how old was you JJ when you overcome the dweller in this life time?
I encountered my dweller when I was 16 and it took five years of struggle to put it in its right place.

So far no one has found the two important words in Dave’s post here:
Hint: How many words did God sound that created the Universe?
A word as understood by this key is much more than a single item in a dictionary.
Dec 11, 2013
he group is missing the hint.
Ruth was the first to get the first part of the assignment correct. The original sound that created all things was one word.
However, the group has missed the hint involved. Let me give an additional huge hint.
If the first word was composed of many words, as we know them, then perhaps the words we are looking for in Dave’s post are not two ordinary dictionary words.
What are the two real words given in Dave’s post?
Excellent. The key words were The Declaration of Independence and The Gettysburg Address.
The point I was attempting to instil in students is that a word is much more than an item in a dictionary. Even the whole of creation is a word. Ther are many words that reside in creation between the universe itself and a dictionary word.
Question: What determines whether something is a word or not?
Name three additional key words that are not dictionary words. One of them should be organic.
Dec 11, 2013
To those who are frustrated at not getting the hints I say:
You’re doing fine. Just look at how dense my character was in the Immortal books.
The problem is twofold.
(1) It is easy to get the wrong idea from hints, even carefully worded ones.
(2) It is human nature to absorb the surface meaning of what we study and think that we have taken it all in. In the case of these keys, they sound simple so when the basic knowledge is given out the student will assume he understands it. After all, it appears that Decision and Judgment would be that deep to understand.
By going through the various keys point by point the seeker can discover many things below the surface.
If all of creation is just one word in the mind of God then yes, a sentence, a book or a planet can be a word.
Look in the mirror and tell me of an organic word you see.

From Eternal Words
“What is a word?”
It seemed to be a very simple question, but one that I found difficult to find words to answer. Finally I answered, “Well, a word is a thing spoken that identifies something.”
Elizabeth grabbed a dictionary, opened it and and added, “It says here that a word is a sound or combination of sounds that symbolizes and communicates a meaning.”
“Now we’re getting somewhere,” he said. “A word is a sound.” What is a sound?”
“Since I play the piano perhaps I can answer that,” said Elizabeth. “The notes on the pioano are sounds and each note has a different frequency or vibration.”
“So a word is a sound, which is, in turn, vibration,” I injected.
“And what does the vibration represent?” he asked.
“Whatever the meaning behind the word is, I suppose.”
“Pick a word,” he commanded.
“How about coin?”
“And when you speak the word coin, isn’t a certain combination of vibrations sent forth to reach the ears of others?”
“And these vibrations represent an idea?”
“Agreed,” I said, trying to follow his thought.
And, in between the thought and the idea, what force acts as the bridge between the two?”
“I’m not sure.”
“Suppose you are reading a magazine and see a picture of a new car. The idea or concept of a car enters your mind. What has to happen within you before you will act and do what is necessary to get the car?”
“I suppose I would have to want the car enough to spend the money.”
“Very good,” he said. “In other words, you first have the idea of a thing in your mind, which is followed by want or desire, which in thrun is followed by the materialization of the physical object.”
“Makes sense,” I said.
“Now a word, you you generally understand the term, starts with an idea. It is followed with a desire to communicate, which is materialized into a vibration that symbolizes the thing, which is, in this case, a car.”
“But there is a big difference between saying the word car and actually having a new Porsche in my front driveway.”
“You think so,” he said with a knowing look.
“”I take it you don’t think so,” I replied.
He pulled out the shiny 1796 quarter again and set it on the table. “This is a coin, is it not?”
“I would think so,” I said.
“Now does the word coin refer only to this coin or to the idea of coins in general?”
“The idea of coins in general.”
“What word then refers to this specific coin?”
“I don’t know,” I said, thinking. “I guess we could call it John’s coin.”
“But there are many who are called John and many coins. What word refers to this coin?”
“How about John the Beloved’s 1796 quarter?” added Elizabeth.
“But I could have two such quarters,” he replied.
“I know you well enough to know you’re leading us to a conclusion that is beyond the obvious,” I said. “You’re not looking for a set of regular words are you?”
“Then what am I looking for?”
“You said you are looking for the word that identifies your coin.”
“Yes.” He noded. “Now what word could it be?”
“Well, I’ve concluded it is not a regular word, but you agree that a word is a vibration that represents a thing. Perhaps the coin’s word is some type of vibration peculiar to itself.”
John smiled and replied, “You’re finally headed the right direction.”
“And what is sound again?”
A light began to go off in my head as I replied, “Sound is a vibration and vibration is composed of waves!”
“And what is the word which is this coin?”
“This is getting interesting,” I mused. “I think I see where you are going. This coin is made up of vibrations, and since vibration is sound, then this coin is made of sound. If we could somehow hear the fine vibrations we could hear the word which is this coin.”
“You start off a little slow, but you usually come through,” John smiled.
“All creation, which appears complex when divided into its many parts, always evolves toward the greatest of simplicity. The element silver is composed of billions of tiny sounds, but the many tiny voices blend in a great choir to make one master sound. To speak the word which is silver, I merely make the one sound instead of the many.”
“But you said the coin is made of two elements, which is copper as well as silver. Is it composed of two words?”
“No. The sound which is silver blends with the sound which is copper to make one sound just as two voices blend to create harmony.”
“To ensure that this would be the case I absorbed and sounded the Word which is Elizabeth when I first met her. Just as the shiny new coin has an uncorrupted word, so do we. The image you see of Elizabeth is the result of her Word sounded in a healthy state. Having this image of her in my room gives me power to restore her to health on either a temporary or permanent basis.”
“And then I demonstrated the truth of this for you in applying it to form. All form is the result of sound, or a word, and all form goes through the process of decay or corruption. But the sounding of the original word on all planes restores the form just as sounding the original phrase in the game restores the meaning.”
“I think I see what you are getting at,” I said. “The idea of a sandcastle, along with its form, continues to exist even if the elements that represent the form crumble.”
“Yes,” he said. “The sand is not the form of the castle, but represents the form. All form represents an idea and all ideas are founded upon some eternal principle. We have therefore the eternal triangle of form, idea, and principle. An eternal word is a word that conveys the true idea so it will never be lost or destroyed. The first sandcastle is long gone, but the original idea is recreated every day, and can be seen on beaches as long as human thought continues on this planet.”
“Interesting,” I said. “So the first sandcastle still exists amidst all the beaches of the world as it is recreated by fun-loving people. I guess we must learn to differentiate between real form and that which makes up the form.”
“Exactly,” said John. “Even though the first sandcastle was not written with a pen or spoken with the mouth, it was nevertheless an Eternal Word that shall not pass away. There are many other ways to write or speak to the mind of another without the use of pen and ink.”
“Like pictures,” injected Elizabeth.
“Actually, all physical communication boils down to pictures,” he replied. “Even the basic alphabet is composed of pictures of symbols, which, when pieced together, create a bigger picture. The first letter of the alphabet is a picture of a sound, whereas a sandcastle is a picture of many sounds.”

Name three additional key words that are not dictionary words. One of them should be organic.
Perhaps I need to add a little more explanation. By key words I mean the use of the term “Word” as it applies to this key, which is somewhat different than the dictionary definition of a word. All the words that fit the regular dictionary definition are included in a good unabridged dictionary.
We are seeking the meaning of a word according to how John was using it when he said, “the Word is God,” and according to its use in the Twelfth Key.
I’ve given some reasonable hints so far including the fact that the creation of the universe is created and sustained by what is considered from a higher point of view – one Word. Now if the universe is created through the sounding of one Word then, from a higher view, a Word is much more inclusive than the thousands of pieces of information in a dictionary.
I elaborated on this at the gathering (Part 18 at about the seven minute mark) and told the group that a word could be a single word, a phrase, a piece of music, a book, or even the Boy Scout Motto.
A Word as it pertains to this Key is a thought seeking manifestation, or a thought in manifestation.
Dan and Adam named a few 12th Key Words that are not in the dictionary.
Dan’s were: “The Adventures of Tom Sawyer”, “The Holy Bible”, “John Lennon’s Imagine”, the “principle of freedom”, and “Soul Contact”.
Adam’s were: Lou Gehrig’s farewell speech, “Soylent Green is people!”
It may seem odd to call all these things words, but they all represent thought in manifestation. I was surprised that no one got the organic (living) word that you see when you look in the mirror. That word is you.
Now if your name is Dan, Dan is not the word I am talking about, for the Dan here in the group is a different word than the thousands of other Dans who are out there. Our Dan here has an essence, vibration and thought different than anyone else in the universe.
The universe is one word yet its body is composed of trillions of individual words.
A dog (God backwards) is also one word but is also composed of trillions of words. Some words that come to mind are eye, nose, hair, teeth, tongue, mouth, stomach, brain, cells, molecules and trillions of atoms, each representing a different word.
The Adventures of Tom Sawyer is a phrase representing the Word which is the book, and is composed of thousands of individual words. But overall, the word which is the book, is thought in manifestation.
Mark Twain heard this particular Word, which is God, within his consciousness and brought it into manifestation.
The question was, “What is a Word?”
The answer is that it is any idea or thought seeking manifestation.
Now let us move on to the second question. Why is the Word called God and why is this a key to power?
Dec 13, 2013
Judy was correct. There has been some high quality expressions the past few days Group members show what they are made of when challenged.
I can’t possibly comment on all the good thoughts but will add a few of my own.
Let us look at the first question. “Why is the Word called God?”
The Key cannot be understood or used unless this answer becomes clear in the student’s mind.
Why is God called God? Answer: Because He created all things. What created all things? Vibration. What is vibration? The sum of all wavelengths in the universe is The Word.
Is this universe all there is?
Is there some greater being uttering a Word that creates a universe of universes?
Now consider this. A human being is to the God of the universe as is God in relationship to the God of the universe of universes.
Does this mean that God is not really God, but some greater being is?
No. Neither does it mean that the word which is you is not God.
Neither does it mean that any idea that you have that you are seeking to manifest is not a Word which is God. It is also a Word, which is God.
Absorbing this truth elevates the soul to great heights because it is a key to manifesting the powers of God among men.
Earlier I said that the trinity of words pertinent to manifesting this key are: accept, embrace and merge.
These are helpful, but perhaps[s a fourth word is in order. This is one made up by the Science fiction writer Robert Heinlein in his book Stranger in a Strange Land. There was not an English word for what he needed to express so he made one up and that word is “grok.” If you grok something you totally understand it because you merge with it so completely that it is as if you become that thing.
This is what God has done with us who are his words and it is what we must do with our words. And remember, I am not speaking of dictionary words but ideas which are words coming into manifestation through your nurturing power and moved along by their own share of the intelligence of God.
Now tell me. How and why is this knowledge, when groked, a key to power?
Goodreads invited me to list my favorite authors. Here was my list:
Alice A. Bailey (The best by far)
Philip K. Dick
Philip K. Dick
James M. McPherson
If any in the group have three or more authors they like go ahead and list them. It would be interesting to see what you like.
