The Santa God

This entry is part 3 of 28 in the series Christmas Messages

A reader was offended with my following statement:

“This simplistic view works well as a teaching mechanism for the spiritual infants of the world who see God as an amplified Santa Claus, but there comes a time that the seeker realizes that the Santa Claus God is an illusion and wants a more logical reason behind the true disciplines and gifts of the Father/Mother/It God.”

Even though I gave this in answer to one of your questions I did not mean to direct it at you, but I was trying to teach the general principle as it applies to all. I was not assuming that you saw God as an amplified Santa Claus.

It is interesting though to apply the law of correspondences to the idea of Santa Claus. Children are taught the illusionary belief that there is a real physical Santa Claus who brings gifts to all the “good” children of the world, but if you are “bad” then Santa Claus will have nothing for you. You may stand out among your friends as a bad kid because you received few or no gifts.

You go through several cycles of dealing with this illusion until you individualize enough to wake up and smell the coffee. You begin asking questions. “Dad, there are millions of kids in the world. How does Santa Claus visit them all?”

Dad gives an answer, but you are not satisfied with it.

“Mom, how does Santa Claus get into our house through such a small chimney?”

Mom gives an answer that shuts you up for a time, but still you wonder.

“Dad, why does my friend Jimmy get a lot better stuff than me when he got caught stealing from the grocery store and cheating in school? I’ve been a good kid and I get cheap stuff.”

Dad gives an answer but now you’re really getting uneasy. You’re not satisfied with it.

“Mom, we saw three Santa Clauses today while shopping. Which one is the real one?”

“They’re just helpers of the real Santa,” says Mom.

“Well, I want to see the real one.”

“He’s up at the North Pole making toys.”

“How does he make millions of toys?”

“He has lots of elves that help him.”

“But the last Santa I talked to said he was the real one.”

“Maybe you just got lucky then,” smiled Mom.

You then look back at mom smiling and wonder. Are you being told the truth here or is there some type of scam going on? You decide to find out the truth once and for all. On Christmas Eve you sneak out of bed and hide in a closet with the door cracked open so you can see the Christmas tree and the chimney. You are going to catch Santa when he shows up and ask him some questions and get some straight answers.

You wait and wait and nothing seems to happen, but then finally you see some movement, but it is not Santa coming through a chimney. Instead it is Mom and Dad with presents in hand placing them under the tree.

You sit back and slap yourself on the side of the head. “I should have known,” you think. “It all makes sense now. Mom and Dad are Santa Clause!

Why didn’t I realize the truth after all the signs I saw? Why wasn’t I able to put it all together?”

The interesting thing is that even though you discovered that you were in an illusion, you also found that the gifts of Christmas were not illusion. The gifts were real, but they materialized through a different process than you previously believed. You have now discovered a cause and effect that makes sense and this knowledge is actually more satisfying to your growing consciousness.

Now what is the correspondence here? As young souls, Santa Claus corresponds to God and we ask similar questions about Him. To our Reverend, Father, Pastor, Mom, Dad, or friends we ask:

“If God is all powerful and loving then why does He allow so much suffering?”

“How is God aware of me and billions of others all at the same time?”

“How does God find time to pay attention to me and billions of others at the same time?”

“Why do I only see God’s helpers? I want to see the real God.”

“Why do I have so many problems when I am a good guy and Jim lives in luxury when he is an SOB?”

“Why do I have to go to church when it is so boring and I don’t learn anything?”

“How can God be everywhere all at the same time, yet be sitting on a throne in heaven?”

Finally, after a period of questioning you withdraw to your closet and open the door to your inner world and you see that the reality of the God you have been told about is no more real than Santa Claus. There is a source of all your gifts, but it is not as you supposed. In many ways it is better than you supposed because it is real.

Seeing Eye to Eye

This entry is part 28 of 34 in the series 2010B

Thanks to the group for your thoughtful comments.  It always helps when I ask a question that invites group response.  Maybe I should do more of that on this site since the more activity we have here the better will be our ratings with search engines.

Even though it was a hassle to change servers and transfer information I think the extra activity here will pay off in the long run.  WordPress also keeps updated on the latest programming technology so we won’t be left behind as the web progresses.

Larry W made a comment that deserves some attention.  He surmised that third degree initiates and higher are pretty much in agreement.  So, is this a true statement and if so what is the principle involved?

The answer is that from the perspective of normal human consciousness this is true, but from a higher perspective it is not.  Let me explain.

The principle is this.  People agree consistently on that which they understand. If a subject or idea is below the level of understanding of those seeking union then there is likely to be disagreement.

It is interesting to note, however, that two can agree on a falsehood.  In this case the union of thought comes not from understanding but from either wrong mutual perception or the acceptance of an outside authority who is in illusion. If the authority changes his mind the followers will normally be united in changing their minds also.

In the days of Galileo the church members as a whole were united in the idea that the earth was the center of the universe and the sun circled around it.  They “knew” this for two reasons.  First, they could see the sun moving around the earth each day and secondly the Vatican Scientists stated that this was both scientific and spiritual fact.

Their authorities wee wrong as well as their perceptions so they were united in illusion.  The goal, however, is not to be united in illusion, but in truth.  This is only achieved consistently through a mutual understanding or shared vision of the real.

As people advance in their spiritual evolution they become united in a larger number of shared truths.

Average people can now understand that the earth circles the sun, that 2+2=4, that human slavery is undesirable, that basic freedom of speech is good, getting an education is a good thing and numerous other items.

As we move up the scale of thought there is less agreement among the masses, but agreement is still to be found among the thinkers.

The first initiation pertains to the physical plane and physical desires.  These initiates will tend to agree on diet, exercise and sex.

The second initiation is centered on mastery of the emotional nature so these individual will extend their agreement to values centered on the feeling nature.  They will agree on the importance of taking personal responsibility, the ingredients of success, love and relationships to name a few.

They will agree on physical and emotional values yet still have disagreements on the plane of the mind and have differing philosophies.

The third degree initiate masters illusion on the plane of the mind so two such initiates, even with widely different backgrounds and belief systems, can sit down and reason together and see the logic in each others’ thought. If one is able to bring forth facts, reason and logic that differs with the others’ beliefs then he will consider the new information and will not reactively reject it.

So do the higher initiates agree on everything?


Why not?

Because no matter how high you get, there are many unknowns to be discovered.  Even though they have solved illusion on the plane of the mind, there are still many things unknown to them and with such unknowns they can only theorize and guess about all the truth involved.

Not knowing an unknown is not illusion if you know you do not know.  If you do not know how many beans are in a jar you know you do not know and there is no illusion.  If you think you have some special gift to guess the correct number of beans, then that is illusion. The many are in illusion because they accept certain things as fact that are not facts and they do not know that they do not know.

When the archangel Lucifer fell from heaven he did not sink into illusion as we understand it but was part of a group seeking solutions to the advancement of humanity, a project with many un known’s to the group.  He therefore thought that he could devise a plan as good as his elder brothers.  He liked his ideas better than theirs and went with them and drew many after him.  Since there could only be one master plan for the whole of the human race a plan was accepted and he was overruled.  He has been seeking to prove he was right ever since.

As entities progress they will agree on lessons learned and truths understood, but their disagreements will become more complex as they strive to achieve their next level of understanding and expand their own ring-pass-not.

Before I comment more on yesterday’s post let us expand the search for political initiates.  The group has only mentioned people in the USA.  How about the rest of the world and political thinkers who are not politicians?

1. “Anything you believe is possible if you are willing to find the steps to manifest that belief. Then after the correct steps are found, you must be willing to take those steps, or else your belief will become a fading dream.”

2. “The final test of the validity of a belief is whether or not the belief can be demonstrated.”

3. “If a person has the simple belief that all he has to do to get any information in the universe is to go within, then, if this belief is strong enough, it creates a thoughtform that hovers around the seeker almost as a separate living entity that has a life of its own. This quasi entity also picks up information from questionable sources and feeds the seeker.”

4. “Those who create a sure foundation for a belief system based on truth will proceed slowly and ask questions as they enter into new territory. This causes the symbolic seed to take strong root so it cannot be moved at a later date.”

5. “If we happen to have a false foundation belief as a part of our mental calculations then even the finest logic will be flawed and destroy that which is real, or true.”

6. “Many dogmas and illusions force us toward belief systems with no appeal to common sense or logic of any kind.”

7. “Without the testing of a belief that belief cannot be turned into a real experience, and without a real experience the truth cannot be fully known and the seeker cannot be truly free.”

8. “Proclaiming a belief does not make it true.”

9. “The controversy over guns is largely caused, not by the damage they do, but from the fact that the freedom to bear arms runs contrary to the belief system of many.”

10. “No matter what your belief system there will come trials in harmonizing the Principle of Freedom with personal feelings.”

11. “One of the things I look for in formulating my own beliefs is how they play out in the real world.”

12. “Illusions are caused by wrong core beliefs in a person’s thinking.”

13. “Emotionally charged people can never trace their beliefs back beyond the point of where their mind currently has its attention.”

14. “Whosoever commits an error and does not correct the error incorporates that error in his belief system and becomes a servant of that erroneous belief.”

15. “Illusion in [a, and/or] the belief system will cause a person to kill his own loved ones, his friends, his countrymen, people who love him and even his own Master as was the case with Judas.”

16. “There is always a fence in this reality and if we cannot see the point in the middle that creates the fence, our beliefs are likely to be fuzzy.”

17. “The true student desires to acquire true knowledge, not a belief system.”

18. “To attain a position of a true teacher has to do with the acquisition of knowledge, not belief.”

19. “The disciple will receive knowledge that may contradict things he has believed all his life. If he is attached to his old beliefs then he may not be usable as a student or teacher.”

20. “Many religious people believe that the earth and universe is only 6-10,000 years old. They continue to believe this even though there are mountains of evidence against it, including the fact that we have spotted galaxies whose light has taken sixteen billion years to reach us.”

21. “We usually find evidence to prove that of which we have a preconceived notion to believe.”

22. “A misconception or illusionary perception of a past event will cause a current belief system based on illusion that seems as real as one based on truth.”

23. “Take that belief which is embraced by the world and look in the opposite direction. In this opposite direction much truth lies hidden.”

24. “The only way karma is altered by belief is when belief initiates a new cause and produces a new effect. It does not negate a past effect, but joins in with it.”

25. “What many today call ancient paganism was really most of the populated world which was composed of a large variety of peoples of varying belief systems.”

26. “The teaching of doctrine in the churches has been very rigid in the past and it has been demanded that members in good standing conform in belief and not consider looking into the value of alternative beliefs.”

27. “The swinging of the pendulum manifests among humanity by their swing to the left and right in their belief systems. As the pendulum swings among us, the masses swing with it, not realizing that they are following the energy much more than they are doing any independent thinking.”

28. “The funny thing about freedom is that if you ask anyone if they believe in it they will emphatically answer yes. But unfortunately, for the majority, freedom to them means freedom for the tiny individual self, even if it comes at the expense of the loss of freedom of others or damage to the whole of a group with a different belief system.”

29. “Many seekers have areas of their belief system that is blocked by illusion or glamour of some kind and then have other areas where they are open. In the areas where they are open they can receive soul contact, but then in areas where they are closed no such contact will be forthcoming. Instead, contact will be made with a thoughtform which will substitute for the soul.”

30. “I believe that the heated emotional feelings of the anti gun people comes more from the disturbance of their belief system than it does from concern over the damage guns may create.”

31. “Read this chapter [Matthew, Chapter 23] and you find that Jesus felt very strongly about people who do not abide by their belief system. They were the only ones He ever condemned. No sin He ever witnessed was ever condemned by Him except this one.”

32. “When a person looks for evidence of his belief with a desire to find it then he will find what he is looking for. Even if the evidence supports a falsehood the seeker will believe it until he drops his preconceived notions and looks with fresh eyes.”

33. “I do not see the grace of God as an exclusive favor to those who have their mind right, but as an inclusive favor to all those who are open as a little child.”

34. “I realize that most people believe in infinity, but now that I have thought about it, it makes no sense to me. It cannot be demonstrated or experienced.”

35. “I notice that those who attempt to avoid the negative by erasing it from their belief system have as much or more negativity in their life as anyone else. I have noticed that those who have this belief system will downplay smaller negative occurrences for a period of time, but then the suppression often builds and when something big comes along there is difficulty in facing it.”

36. “Anyone who believes in Christ and that he does not work alone believes in the Brotherhood. They may call this group by different names, but a rose is a rose by any other name.”

37. “Every man, no matter how blinded, believes in his own way that he is reasonable.”

38. “When has blind belief or blind faith ever brought more benefit to humanity than the reasonable course of action? Never. There is not one example in history.”

39. “No where in the Bible does it tell us to have Jesus in our hearts, but it does clearly tell us to have Lucifer there. If Lucifer refers to the devil himself maybe the Christian world should burn their Bibles.”

40. “The word “faith” is not really a belief but it is a state of mind that is aligned with Purpose that can override all the influences on the physical world even to the production of great miracles including the overcoming of death.”

Be Ye Not Deceived

1. “It’s always a good test to ask someone who considers himself a super being to present us with a new principle or even an expansion of a revealed one. So far not a single person I have met who has claimed to be a great one has been able to reveal even one.”

2. “One pointed visualization of the suffering of Christ accompanied by a desire for approval from God can indeed manifest some interesting phenomenon.”

3. “Many in the New Age community are deceived by the concept of relative truth. The deception that comes with this type of belief in relative truth is that the incentive to find the real truth is removed.”

4. “If one is deceived into supporting a belief system which will limit overall freedom he will come back in a situation where that which is important in his life is kept from him because he has diminished freedom to pursue.”

5. “A great life which once lived in Shamballa who has reversed himself, and yet has the knowing of a master, will have the power to deceive all but the very elect for he can duplicate all the wisdom, the power and even the concern for humanity a Master may appear to have.”

6. “Because some greater reversed lives can appear good, throws emphasis on our maintaining soul contact for it is only through bypassing authority with all life but the soul and spirit can we safely travel the path forward and not be deceived.”

7. “Deception to avoid hurt only becomes necessary when a foundation has been laid by previous deception.”

8. “If you make a promise believing you can carry it out, but then find that you are unable to fulfill it, the promise was broken because you were self deceived about what you could or could not do.”

9. “The main thing that causes the seeker to be deceived, as he seeks an answer to his question, is his refusal to drop that which is “familiar” to him. To find the truth then we must let go of the “familiar spirit” and become open to accepting that which is not familiar.”

10. “The moment we let the magnetic power of the lower personality pull at our attention (as we seek) we become susceptible to deception and will take an internal emotional desire as an answer from God.”

11. “Even though the full power of decision is available to us, if we had the consciousness to use it, we are swindled out of this power through ignorance or deception. All us, of to some degree, are deceived into thinking that we cannot use it in certain areas.”

12. “Jesus or the Christ does not channel by direct voice.”

13. “The three deceptions are not that complicated. It is important, however, that you understand them well enough so you can explain them in your own words without quoting some other teaching.”

14. “Lies deal with an attempt to deceive others and broken promises are caused by self deceit.”

15. “Those who have had no soul contact will find that every communication they give or receive will have some deception in it.”

16. “In the days of each antichrist God sends great deception.”

17. “Visualize yourself on a path that divides. The left hand path leads to deception and the right hand leads to truth. Where are you likely to find the most truth? Taking the left hand path and discovering everything that is false, or taking the right hand path and discovering truth after truth. Which path leads to the greater progress?”

18. “The trouble with the great deception here is that by the time it is unraveled the person is so attached to his selfish interest that the turning around is very difficult.”

19. “Whenever you hear any news report warning of the dangers of freedom, start looking into the hidden facts and details and you will be amazed at the deception you will find.”

20. “If your thoughts are true they will be followed by action. If they are not then there is deception in your thinking.”

21. “The deception to accept his [the beast’s] authority comes from our own self deception and has little to do with the beast itself. “To thine own self be true” is not something one can do until he reaches a certain degree of evolution; therefore, the beast does not even have to lie.”

22. “The methods used by the Masters of Wisdom on up always involve full consciousness on the part of the receiver whenever possible, whereas astral entities are happy to send the medium out of his or her own awareness and take over consciousness.”

23. “As soon as we see through the deception fostered by the beast, the Tree of Life again becomes available to us. We will discover that we left the Tree of Life — the Tree of Life did not leave us.”

24. “Forget about some infinite consciousness that has the warped interest in deciding when you are going to squash your next ant and concentrate on where you are in the now and mold that great future ahead of you to your own satisfaction.”

25. “The preacher may say “Jesus wants you to give me your money.” This blasphemes the name of Jesus. The preacher has no idea what Jesus wants.”

26. “Not all invisible contacts are Higher Lives, and the biggest mistake of the beginner is to assume that all communications from the unseen world is from higher intelligence.”

27. “More than ninety percent of proclaimed higher contacts are either astral entities with very limited knowledge, or from the person’s imagination and subconscious, or both.”

28. “If a person with invisible contacts always seems to be receiving what he wants to hear, you may take this as a sign that the source is not a Higher Life or a Master.”

29. “Once we see in advance the temptations to deceive, we can just about always figure a way around them so we can be true to ourselves and others, yet at the same time follow the path of harmlessness.”

30. “You must not trust me or anyone else until you and prove to yourself that a teacher or teaching is leading you the right direction.”

31. “There are many who claim to be advocates of freedom who are merely deceived. If their own benefits are enhanced at the expense of the many, they are deceived into thinking that freedom is enhanced.”

32. “Beware of anyone who claims to be going within and only brings forth facts and data, but no principles.”

33. “And what is the correct approach to progress toward the true reality? The answer is simple. All illusion is created by deception. Therefore, we find reality by practicing non-deception.”

34. “The problem with pinpointing any current activities of emotional deception perpetrated by Beast energy is that controversy will always be involved.”

35. “If, therefore, one suspects I am motivated by ego and decides to look for evidence of that conclusion he will find his evidence. The evidence may be a reflection of his own ego, but he will find it nevertheless.”

36. “If an entity claims to be a Master and cannot or does not manifest in the flesh, then he is deceiving you and is not to be trusted. Such an entity will seek to use the body of an unconscious channel and gather disciples around him for his own glory.”

37. “There are many astral entities, which are far from being Masters, who think themselves wise and seek to have influence on the physical plane. Such entities cannot manifest in the flesh. Some have power to project an astral image, but if you try to touch them, your hand will pass through. If you touch a true Master you will feel his or her body.”

38. “Many are deceived into supporting the Robin Hood idea of stealing from the rich and giving to the poor.”

39. “If I said I received a revelation from some great entity I could be lying, just as are ninety-nine percent of those out there who make the claim do.”

40. “Guilt is not the result of a violation of conscience, but the offending of a false ego which seeks to deceive in the darkness of an unilluminated mind.”

41. “The most deceptive of all of the energies is the solar plexus.”

42. “The decision between the two paths is not a decision between blissful love and demonic madness. If that were all it is, then all would choose the path of light. Instead, many are deceived into a dangerous heading toward the dark path because they believe they are choosing love.”

43. “Maya is the pull of matter, which matter has a magnetic pull on us in a direction away from the Christ consciousness.”

44. “Almost all of the visits of famous spiritual people from the past are illusions created by thoughtforms.”

Book Of Quotes

Inspirational, Spiritual and Metaphysical Quotes

From The Writings Of JJ Dewey

1  I cannot put too much stress on recognizing and overcoming illusion. Until this occurs in the life of a disciple he or she is not trusted by the Brotherhood of Light for they realize an illusion may yet trip him up.

2  Once you have reached the point where you are totally dedicated to following the highest you know, then illusion must be dispelled or you will become dangerous.

3  The average person loves illusion. He wants to be tricked into believing what he wants to believe and not let the facts get in the way.

4  That’s part of the great plan. Give us all the illusion that we can handle until we’re ready to come out of the illusion.

5  To my knowledge the principle of illusion has never been explained so average seekers can understand it, yet it is the final block to full soul contact.

6  The problem is that any illusion we unravel will strike a nerve in about half the people so it is best to use an example that we all at least agree to be against.

7  To find an example of illusion that creates great harm to illustrate its dangers and identify its reality you have to pick on a person of fairly high evolution who furthered the cause of the left hand path and there are not many who are well known that we can choose from.

8  Illusion is logical to those caught in it and the only way to expose it is to understand it.

9  It takes the discriminating mind and intuition to separate the real from the illusion.

10  If we do not practice non-deception then inspired teachings designed to take us out of illusion can lead us further into illusion.

11  A person may have basically overcome Maya in one life and then slip back into its trap in another.

12  Illusion is not resolved by exclusion, but by the revelation of light.

13  The true seeker will never exchange truth for illusion no matter how disturbing.

14  Be open to all possibilities, but remember this. When your foundation truths are challenged the chances are that the challenger is presenting illusion and you should question accordingly.

15  The ways of transforming good intentions into harm through illusion are without number.

16  Illusion is so powerful that it can take even good and decent people along the path of destruction.

17  Illusion cannot be dispelled by mind alone.

18  Often times several people together will see a similar illusion because of their similarity in vibration and expectant outcome.

19  Foundation illusions are very difficult to dispel because they are usually tied in with a mainstream thoughtform which is held by millions.

20  The Dragon itself has no power over man, but can only establish power through illusion.

21  The only way to dispel the foundation illusion is through the intuition and sincere inquiry.

22  The astral world is full of illusion, but also a heaven of sorts and to rise above this illusion one must see through illusion after illusion until the celestial devachan is reached and finally Nirvana as taught by the Buddha. When this is reached the seeker finally sees reality as it is.

23  The only thing which is truly beyond illusion is the third great energy of Purpose from whence Love and Light owe their origination. But even Purpose is not “that which is not,” but that which is not understood.

24  The trouble is that few people are able to look with vision upon the greater reality because their present illusion is comfortable, and they do not wish to have it destroyed.

25  Mental illusions cannot stand in the light of truth.

26  I admit that I often do defend myself when attacked and sometimes counterattack. I try and see myself attacking the illusion rather than the person however.

27  That which is not true can have the illusion of truth, but that is all.

28  There is a certain amount of illusion behind most fears, but there is also great illusion behind most proclamations of love.

29  I would be prone to believe that major illusion would be involved if someone does not believe he would react on a physical level in crisis situations.

30  Physical matter is created on an illusionary principle that must be unfolded rather than undergo fusion to remove the illusion.

31  Deluded or not, we must move ahead following the highest that we know. If we do this with a pure heart, our strength will be as the strength of ten and the fog of our illusions will be lifted; moreover, we will see reality as it is piece by piece.

32  I do not like victimhood because such an idea is illusion and escapism.

33  Celebrities, as a whole, operate in the world of illusion and glamour and act as a fog which hides the light rather than direct the hearts and minds of the masses toward the light.

34  The path out of the illusion is truth.

35  Sure there is a lot of illusion in this world and there are others worlds a lot more permanent and more real in higher realms. We must start here where we are.

36  This world is created on illusionary principles, but the power that created it is real and the experiences we have are real.

37  There are illusionary paradoxes and then there are true paradoxes.

38  One of the most enslaving illusions…is the illusion that God speaks to our authorities instead of the inward authority of the Holy Spirit. It is the illusion that we are to trust the outer authority more than the inward authority. It is the illusion that God is replaced by man and the outer man or woman is another human being just like yourself and no more speaks for God than you do.

39  What makes a terrorist or a dangerous enemy is not anger but illusion.

40  Illusion in a belief system will cause a person to kill his own loved ones, his friends, his countrymen, people who love him and even his own Master as was the case with Judas.

41  All illusion is created by deception.

42  While it is true that there is a time and place for all things, even accusations, it is my observation that those on the side of illusion make many more accusations, including many that are baseless, than the pure in heart. Many not only accuse, but do so with much hatred and vitriolic emotion.

43  If people believe a mistake is a lie then this illusion which is created can lead to separateness, hate and distrust.

44  The mind is captive to illusion and cannot free itself. It is at the mercy of Spirit to free it.

45  If we are dedicated to knowing the truth we will indeed eventually see through all illusion.

Relative Perfection

Book Of Quotes

Inspirational, Spiritual & Metaphysical Quotes

From The Writings Of JJ Dewey

1  To have perfection you have to have a judge of what perfection is.

2  True perfection consists in having the ability to complete a task successfully.

3  If God is ever to create a perfect circle then He would have to have the exact number for pi, for without it a perfect circle is impossible; making the perfection of God impossible.

4  Female energies build forms and male energies destroy forms for in the reaching of the perfection of any decision one must both build and destroy.

5  A reason that people accept Jesus as God is because they see him as being perfect. Actually, there are more scriptures that talk about the perfection of the saints than that of Jesus.

6  That which is above is in the process of evolution and will, at the end of its evolution, be more complex and majestic than that which is below; but that which is below is near the end of its evolution, and has reached relative perfection.

7  Eventually our laws will reach relative perfection where little or no change will be necessary.

8  The only path to relative perfection is to have corrective measure built in the system so correction can be applied as light is revealed.

9  Orthodox Christians say that Jesus was perfect because he obeyed all the laws but the Bible says “The law made NOTHING perfect.”

10  All living things are perfect as the Father is perfect if they follow the harmony of nature.

11  Once relative perfection is reached in the world of form the intelligence behind its creation recognizes it and begins to duplicate this perfection.

12  An injunction to be flawless as is the One God who holds the universe together, and created all the millions of galaxies is like telling a worm to be like a man.

13  It is indeed disturbing for many to contemplate that even heaven or the higher worlds may not be a perfect place.

14  The tiny subatomic lives (which have united as one) which are responsible for the interplay between spirit and matter within us have reached relative perfection, and humankind in relation to the universe is just getting started.

15  We want to make the leap to perfection in one step because the picture painted by some inspired book looks so beautiful and true we cannot bear to live with our imperfect selves another instant.

16  The tiny lives that exist within our bodies that have perfected themselves in their sphere, seek to shift their time awareness and consciousness to harmonize with our own, to them a human is the universal God.

17  In the molecular level relationship has reached relative perfection, whereas the progression of humanity toward their relative perfection in relationship is at fifty percent or less.

18  The Masters use the term “relative perfection” because any concept of perfection is relative to the fulfillment of some objective.

19  The Soul which is above is humanity living on millions of planets throughout the universe. The largest difference between higher soul (humanity) and lower soul (the interplay within us) is that humanity is only at the beginning of its mission in relation to the universe whereas the microcosmic soul has reached relative perfection.

20  The Christ through Jesus perfectly (relative perfection) manifested both love and wisdom as well as anchoring the will of God on the earth in a way that had not been done before.

21  The word equivalent to the modern word perfect is AKRIBELA and if you check your Bible Concordance you will not find this word ever used in connection with God or Jesus.

22  What perfection is, is different for each person. To the Jews who crucified Jesus, He was one of the most imperfect beings who ever lived. To the born again Christian, He is completely flawless.

23  Ultimate Perfection is an illusion and actually undesirable. If we were to live in a state where there could not exist a goal to progress even higher then there would be no joy in living.

24  We have the concept of perfection and imperfection in the world of form, but in the formless world of origination this concept is meaningless. Perfection has meaning when form is in the process of creation or has materialized.

25  A life whether it be an atom, a worm, a man or a planetary Spirit evolves to relative perfection within its sphere. When this relative perfection is reached its progression on an individual basis comes to an end, but it uses molecular principles (see The Molecular Relationship) to enter a path of higher evolution.

26  Becoming, or evolving toward ultimate perfection within the various spheres, is the destiny of all the sons and daughters of mankind.

27  It is only after many attempts at trial and error, and then learning from mistakes, that relative perfection is finally obtained.

28  We presently have a system of numbers and math that allows us to assign an exact figure (say one foot) to a distance that no one has been able to measure as existing in the real world.

29  The word perfection only applies to form; talking about perfection when there is no form is meaningless from our point of view.

30  With relative perfection one can reach a state where the entity has a skill down pat so he becomes a reliable performer or he has achieved a particular goal to his satisfaction, but soon he finds another skill to master and another goal to achieve.

31  The reason absolute perfection is an illusion is because to believe in such a thing one must negate the eternal principle of correction. Because correction is always taking place absolute perfection cannot be.

32  If everything were perfect we wouldn’t be here to begin with and there would be no illusion, which is imperfect.

33  What is the perfect diamond, the perfect look, the perfect color, the perfect flower? What is perfect is what we define as perfect, or cannot be improved upon, and each person has a different idea of what that is.

34  God cannot create a perfect world for you and me because we define and see perfection differently. A perfect world to one may be hell to another.

35  When you look in the eyes of another and see only perfection what do you see? You see the face of Christ and this opens the door of the soul.

36  Perfection is a journey rather than a final adjustment.

The Intuition

Book Of Quotes

Inspirational, Spiritual and Metaphysical Quotes

From The Writings Of JJ Dewey

1  This is the purpose of the Intuitive Principle – to cause you to contemplate on questions in hope of touching the soul.

2  Probably the most misunderstood higher contact made through the soul is the intuition.

3  Perhaps the most common thing to be mistaken for the intuition is psychic reception.

4  When we speak of intuition we are not using it according to the common definition in the world, for the world does not understand what soul intuition is and therefore is not equipped to give a definition.

5  Intuition operates through the language of principles and psychic impression operates through the transference of information or data.

6  The closest the average person comes to approaching the intuition is in use of ideas.

7  We could call intuition a higher idea stimulated by soul contact and a regular idea a “lower idea.”

8  The intuition uses all the faculties of the lower self including lower ideas, but takes them further.

9  When the intuition works properly, the seeker can often write a book on the one holy instant of downloading what came into the physical brain.

10  In ancient times initiates were often given dangerous tests to force a point of tension to stimulate the intuition of the disciple. Partially because of the complexity of the modern world such tests are not necessary, for in the day to day world of complex situations and living, it is usually possible to create our own points of tension making a trek to a far away pyramid unnecessary.

11  Intuition is ALWAYS accompanied by understanding. He who receives information, but does not understand it, receives it by some other way.

12  Many who teach and claim to have Christ Consciousness possess little more than higher emotional feeling. Such feeling is pleasant, but it does not mean that the world of the intuition is opened up so the Oneness Principle is activated.

13  The first soul contact comes long before development of the intuition.

14  Soul contact opens the door to all higher contacts, and the intuition opens still another door to even higher levels. Intuition could, therefore, be called the revelation of that which lies behind knowledge or the revelation of principles.

15  He who uses intuition reflects the higher light off the mind and filters the knowledge down to the physical brain.

16  Some psychic impression is accurate and some is not, but even if it is accurate this reception works through different principles than intuition does.

17  If a person obtains knowledge outside the normal realm of learning this does not mean he has used the intuition.

18  Definition of Intuition (not found in any standard dictionary) is:  “The reception by the mind, as a result of a point of tension reached through contemplation, of a principle which leads to a ‘flashing forth’ of understanding, which leads to unlimited knowledge.”

19  A child does not use intuition as we have defined it here. A child’s mind is not equipped to do the type of contemplation needed.

20  Those who are the true intuitives of the world will never feel alone and isolated because mentally they are already gathered, or synthesized.

21  Whereas instinct impresses important facts upon the mind of the receiver, intuition impresses the principles behind the facts. He who wields instinct knows. He who masters intuition knows, and knows that he knows, and knows why he knows.

22  As far as I know this is a first for the introduction of new teachings and principles through the intuitive principle which are virtually unrevealed to the world at large.

23  Understand and develop the principle of intuition through which quantums of truth can be downloaded into your mind and understood by the heart.

24  The problem with understanding intuition is that a full realization of it requires a degree of soul contact. If the principle is explained to one who does not have soul contact, this person will not comprehend it.

25  The intuition leads to comprehension of a principle which leads to knowledge and not knowledge or facts only.

26  Without the connecting link of the intuition the mind determines that illusion is real, and because it is full of facts and does not understand all true principles, it rejects or “slays” the true reality.

27  The mind must be led out of deception and illusion by the power of the intuition.

28  The path to the intuition is forged on the plane of the mind.

29  The main obstacle that prevents the mind from finding intuition is that the mind “slays the real.”

30  Feeling alone excludes reason whereas intuition includes it.

31  The intuition is only correctly perceived when heart and mind have been balanced. Without balance great deception will be present.

32  One cannot develop the full powers of the intuition unless he first masters the powers of the mind and its power to reason and see logical correspondences.

Book Of Quotes

Inspirational, Spiritual & Metaphysical Quotes From

The Writings Of JJ Dewey

1.  “It is not the discovery of truth that is an indication of your evolution. Instead, it is your power to perceive truth.”

2.  “True equality can only be achieved through truth, not illusion.”

3.  “No ultimate truth will ever ‘stand up’ for us. We must seek it in our quiet moments. As we become sensitive to the revelations through the soul we will all discover truth in some odd places.”

4.  “If we expect truth to always verify our desires we develop a mindset which becomes an enemy to truth.”

5.  “The highest truth originates from God and the lowest level is the physical plane.”

6.  “To find the higher truth one must find the truth on the physical plane first.”

7.  “We must learn to recognize and embrace truth in all the spheres. If we cannot recognize truth on the physical plane then we have no chance of understanding truth on the astral and mental planes.”

8.  “Truths discovered by Newton were not replaced by Einstein, but added to. Every truth discovered by Newton is still true and has not changed one iota.”

9.  “All truth belongs to all and is the exclusive property of none.”

10.  “When people use the phrase “my truth,” they generally mean “my opinion.”  If we are honest with ourselves, we will see that the phrase ‘my truth’ and ‘your truth’ are illusionary statements.”

11.  “The only stand I ever concretely take is either for the truth or the pursuit of truth wherever that path may lie.”

12.  “The truth is always relevant and if your goal is to expose the truth your impact will be powerful and lasting.”

13.  “If the seeker believes he is willing to accept the truth no matter what, yet is still governed by his attachments then he has no impetus to take the final step to truth.”

14.  “If I were to make any claim, it would be that it is possible to know the truth, especially principles that reveal truth and this is through reflecting the material off your own soul.”

15.  “There are times when you are faced with a choice between the real and the unreal, what is true and what is false. When faced with such a choice you seek the truth within your heart. In this case, there will be a sense of peace surrounding the truth, and fear connected with the false.”

16.  “Since all truth from God is reasonable then to abnegate reason is foolish indeed.”

17.  “The seeker must become as a little child, and be open to all things and have a willingness to learn any new truth, even if it diametrically opposes that which he has held dear for many years. Then when the truths of the Holy Spirit do distil upon his consciousness, he must not resist, but follow. If he does not follow, depression is likely to result for he will not be able to completely set aside the feelings from his innermost being that he is not living up to the highest of which he is capable.”

18.  “There are many truths beyond our ring-pass-not that we are unprepared for and would be devastating for us to prematurely learn.”

19.  “Truth can also bring fear and terror. Consider the person who discovers that he has been traveling the path of illusion for forty years and now must backtrack and start from square one. This truth will make his heart sink.”

20.  “Truth is simple. It is what is. When we experience ‘what is’ then we know the truth whether it be 2+2=4 or the Light and Love of God Itself. Meanwhile, I am waiting here for Santa Claus to have an experience with him.”

21.  “The only way to harmonize with the Word which is pure Truth is to become the truth ourselves.”

22.  “Only truth can be experienced as true.”

23.  “Take away your body, feelings and mind and you still exist, but you are unable to assimilate the truth.”

24.  “Truth is that which IS at any point in time, space or thought. It is sustained by the consciousness of all that is and exists independent of individual consciousness.”

25.  “Anything that is experienced is a true experience.”

26.  “There is no such thing as infinite truth.”

27.  “The desire for the truth must be the only desire in the consciousness as the truth is sought.”

28.  “If one perceives a truth as clear as the morning sun but cannot convey that truth it will only seem as the blackest night to him who has not heard.”

29.  “The truth is that God is good and the eternal path of light is the path of dominating good.”

30.  “No one in my entire life has ever been able to give me a relative truth. Relative perceptions yes, but not relative truth. There is no such thing.”

31.  “There are two types of truth that we can ponder. First there are true facts. These are pixels of information about events or ideas. Secondly there are true principles.”

32.  “We are much better off to concentrate on the discovery of truth as we understand it and as we can understand it.”

33.  “As far as some absolute truth beyond our understanding why even talk or think about it, for it would be beyond our understanding. Why teach a slug about nuclear physics if he can’t understand?”

34.  “Our only religion here is truth and that is what we will pursue no matter where it leads.”

35.  “Diversity, to fill the needs of all those seeking truth at their own level, is always needed.”

36.  “We must understand what is not true before we can understand what is true.”

37.  “Truth is not determined by anyone.”

38.  “Truth alone is the religion of the soul and it does not matter where it comes from.”

39.  “A love of the truth and a certain amount of ability to perceive light and truth is essential. Unfortunately, almost all, high and low, claim to love truth and think they are as good as the next guy in perceiving it.”

40.  “The truth is that only a handful truly loves truth.”

41.  “If the seeker has a casual interest in the truth, but that which is not true is the object of his desire, he will see that which is false as the truth.”

42.  “If everything is true just because you think it then the search for truth ends for there is nothing left to search for.”

43.  “If the search for truth ends then no further increase in light will come and the person is reduced to a stagnant I AM rather than I AM BECOMING.”

44.  “An accurate perception of truth does not change truth.”

45.  “There is no such thing as anyone owning truth.”

46.  “The truth is out there but it is very illusive and that’s what makes the game of life so interesting.”

47.  “The important thing is to balance off a healthy skepticism with a considerable weight given to earned authorities to come up with the truth to the extent that it registers with your soul, mind and heart.”

48.  “Many people seek to prove a thing true by looking for errors and flaws. The idea is that if they find no error then only the truth is left. Why is this approach not reliable? Why is it easier to find truth by looking for truth?”

49.  “Truth is always independent of perception making truth absolute, but perception relative.”

50.  “All classifications of truth being relative, is in reality caused by calling perception truth; whereas that which is perceived is often not true.”

51.  “Mind is not the ultimate source of truth and eventually must reach numerous dead ends that can only be crossed by revelation from Spirit or the Higher Self.”

52.  “The truth is, truth seems relative, but in its essence is absolute.”

53.  “Truth brings a feeling of joy and peace or tranquility. This is certainly true if it is the discovery of a truth that we ‘seek’ as Christ admonished us to do. When we seek and find there is indeed joy.”

54.  “Einstein increased our perception of truth about gravity, time, space and other things but he did not change anything that is true. He obtained a more accurate vision of reality than Newton, but an accurate perception of truth does not change truth.”

55.  “Truth is not found in perception but exists independent of individual perception.”

56.  “Many teachers present their perceptions as ‘the truth.'”

57.  “Only by releasing ourselves of our preconceived notions and looking at the esoteric facts and influences can we get at the truth.”

58.  “Follow all the aspects of the Will of God that are within your perception and your sensitivity to the truth will increase.”

59.  “A scientific truth is as true as any truth and truth will harmonize with truth.”

60.  “I know from personal experience that it is possible to reach agreement on any point of truth.”
