Wayne: I know where the separation between the animal mind and the human mind is. No animal thinks abstractly or symmetrically. They think objectively and every whole human thinks in abstract form and that is why we have spoken languages and why we think in languages. Animals don’t – they think in pictures or sense so I know that is where the break point is and if that is the same as becoming self-conscious…
JJ: That is not the same as becoming self-conscious. When humans first become self-conscious they are still very close to the animal instincts. They carry those animal instincts closely with them and develop them to the highest level possible. For instance, you hear stories about native in the jungles using their animal instincts in an almost supernatural way that baffles the regular civilized person.
Now moving ahead we eventually develop everything we can at the physical level. We are talking about identifying with the physical and this is what we first learn – everything connected with physical survival and using those instincts in a native element and then we progress to something else that many people think is not progression. Does anybody have an idea as to what that is?
Audience: It has something to do with the physical thinking mind.
JJ: Okay we have the physical, the thinking, or mind – and what is in between?
Audience: The emotional.
JJ: The emotional; we learn selfishness. Now what is interesting is that a lot people visit these native tribes and find out that they are very sharing. They go and hunt the wild animals and everybody shares them and many people think that they are more evolved than us since they have a natural sharing about them. That is the instinctive level that has a bit of a pack mentality, but then we begin to separate ourselves and begin to develop the desire nature and as we do this we see our selves as separate from everybody else. Then we want what is good for us and the heck with our neighbor. Many people see selfishness as evil but what is not realized is that this is a state we must all pass through to learn unselfishness. All of us know people that are going through this period of selfishness and it is something that we have to go through.
We go through many lives that are spent in this emotional development and in this development we learn emotional love and emotional love is different from spiritual love because when you fall in love emotionally you want the person for what they will do for you. So this is a selfish form of love and you want money for what it can do for you and you want the possessions for what they can do for you. As a person enters this emotional existence and he goes through hundreds of lifetime in this period of emotional existence his learning is a slow process. He becomes more and more selfish and he begins to get so selfish that finally he reaches a lifetime to of almost absolute selfishness, and he reaches a point where he is so selfish that he gets everything he wants and he steps on everybody’s toes and finally reaches a point where he realizes he is not satisfied. He has everything he wants and he has hurt a lot of people to get there and he does not do unto others as he would have them do unto him. He does unto others before they do unto him type of thing.
Finally he reaches the point where he gets everything he wants but it does not make him happy and he thinks, well there has to be something more. And as he begins to think about what works and what do not work in this process he develops the next step, which is his mind. Then he develops his mind and he gets excited again about life and he begins to study philosophy and how things work and he puts together a belief system. When he has developed a mind he decides for a period that there is no God at all because he cannot see any direct evidence at all and God has never come down and talked to him. So when he reaches this mental ability and he begins to develop this mental ability he becomes an atheist for a number of lifetimes and becomes a non-believer.
Now what is interesting about atheism is we see these atheists around us and many of them are more evolved than the religious folk and born again people who are very zealous about God and the after life and being saved. Many of the atheists are actually farther along in the whole scheme of things than are the religious zealous people. Now there are also religious people who are very high up spiritually and you cannot put them all in one category but many of the simple minded religious people are not as spiritually evolved as the atheist and this is just a period that the atheist goes through and each one of us sometime along the path will go through a period of where we will just give up on there being a God. So the person goes through a number of lifetimes where he does not believe it unless he can see it, unless he can prove it and what do you think turns this guy around?
Audience: Near death experience.
JJ: You never know!
Wayne: He starts to develop spiritually.
JJ: What turned the selfish man around? Lorraine what turned him around?
Lorraine: He did not find joy.
JJ: Yes, selfishness did not work for him. So the man develops his mind and becomes very wise, the equivalent of the college professor or a great scientist, an engineer, and great philosopher at one time and he explores all the elements of the mind lifetime after lifetime until he reaches a point where he mentally produces one thought: “I have gone through and used every piece of logic and reasoning to understand life and still I cannot get the answers.”
Audience: The person who is at the pinnacle of selfishness – would it not bring them joy for a little while before he came to this realization that this selfishness did not really bring him true joy and happiness?
JJ: Everything new brings you joy and when we went from the physical to the emotional and began to develop emotional love – it really stimulated us and felt great. Just like say you get a divorce from a bad marriage and you start doing the bar scene and you say, “oh man, this is really great to be free and you do it every night for say a year.
Then you think, man I am getting bored of this and I had better start thinking about settling down again. You eat the best candy you can find and when you eat it over and over again you get bored of it. So when you enter a new activity you get real excited and for a period of time and then you get bored again. The guy who enters the mind finds it very exciting to encounter these emotionally based people and counter them with an argument or to wrap them around his finger because he is a little bit smarter than they are. It is kind of a thrill to do that for these guys. And it is kind of a thrill to study different things that stimulate the mind but over a period of lifetimes he covers everything related to the mind and still he finds that he still does not have all the answers that he wants. The answers have to be there somewhere and where are they? Could it be possible that there is an answer somewhere? And that maybe they’re something higher up than just physical matter?
So his mind begins to open up because he has reached a dead end and he asks a lot of questions that he just can’t get answered. Logic cannot answer them and his mind cannot deduce it from available data. He just can’t get the answers for sure and internally he feels that there must be a way to get the answers so he looks within.
Then what spurs on his evolution is he opens up and becomes as a little child, “Except ye become as a little child you cannot enter into the kingdom of God.” So when he thought he knew it all he had no possibility of entering into the kingdom of God. But then he keeps knocking his head against the wall and not getting any answers and then finally concluding that maybe there is something there and asking, how do I find it? Then he becomes like a little child as if he knows nothing and he begins to get a flash of inspiration and then thinks, did I imagine that somewhere inside my mind or did that come from somewhere else? I am going to test this out. He begins to test this out logically and piece it together. He thinks, this piece of knowledge I have just came in a flash. It is logical but it is not logical how I got it. I wonder if something else will come.
He concentrates on it and pretty soon something else does come and then he learns to develop the intuitional part of himself, the spiritual part of himself, and he is excited again. He was banging his head against the wall for several lifetimes and now he has discovered that there is higher knowledge available, not through the mind but there is some type of higher life up there that is able to funnel down higher principles so that he can understand new things and he is all excited again.
With each round of discovery you get excited again and now he is real excited that he has found a new way to obtain knowledge by the intuition and by contacting something. So he goes through a number of lifetimes where experiences false contacts and true contacts until finally he begins to differentiate and learn what is the soul and what is not the soul and what is true and what is not true until finally he is able to solidify himself in the kingdom of God.
Then when he solidifies himself in the kingdom of God he makes contact with not only his intuition but he makes contact with the Brotherhood of Light and he finds out that there are high beings upon the earth that have gone through everything that he has gone through and have mastered everything that pertains to humanity. These people work with us through the soul energies and there is whole group of lives on the other side that can be contacted through what I call the oneness principle. Through the soul he finds that he has group contact and just before he contacts this group life he goes through what is called “The Dark Night Of The Soul”. Most people do not understand the dark night of the soul. They think that if they are depressed than they are under going the dark night of the soul but that is not what the dark night of the soul is. The dark night of the soul is a point of tension before you find and make a link with your group life – with The Brotherhood Of Light.
The Brotherhood of Light is like a Spiritual Internet. In other words, you turn on your computer and all of a sudden there are millions of lives there available. You punch a key and you can have the thoughts from among millions of human beings show up on your computer screen. The Spiritual Internet is like that. It is interesting to note that in esoteric teachings every one of our inventions is really something that is patterned after something on the unseen worlds. In other words, the regular Internet is patterned after the Spiritual Internet.
There is a Spiritual Internet and through the soul you can tap into this and you never know what you are going to get. It is a little bit like doing a Google search, when you put in a word for a Google search and you don’t know what you are going to get. If you put a key word in your mind and you are in contact through the soul through the intuition you are going to bring down some interesting material and you never know what it is going to be. If you put in a word on a Google search such as “Boise” you will get all kinds of generic information about the city, but if you put in Boise Broncos then that is going to really narrow it down so you are not going to get nearly as many hits but it will be more specific. The same is true with us with the Spiritual Internet – if we put out some specific words and key questions that are floating around in our mind then we are going pull more specific material that is going to download into our minds.
