The Attack of Seven
Glenys posed an interesting question to me and I thought the answer would be beneﬁcial to all members of the group.
Glenys said she has been saying the Song faithfully since she received it and at ﬁrst things seemed to go better for her, but now lately, things have been difﬁcult. Her computer broke down and she is going to have to go off line for a while. She is having several physical problems and everything seems to be off kilter lately.
Now she is not the only one saying things like this. We all know about Rick’s recent problems and until I suggested that we concentrate on positive posts, we seemed to be going through a period where the majority are having unusual problems. I do not believe that the Dark Brothers are attacking you as individuals, but it is possible they have sent a charge of energy to the participating group as a whole. What seems like an attack is usually just a natural effect of moving energy.
So Glenys (and I’m sure there are others) wants to know – what is happening here? Isn’t the Song supposed to prevent these things? First, you will remember in the book that everything didn’t go completely rosy after we started saying the Song.
The main purpose of the ﬁrst verse of the Song where it mentions protection from all destructive forces is to protect those who participate in the singing from destructive spiritual forces. This is more important by far than protection from physical things.
Whenever a person decides to pursue a higher spiritual path and makes an effort to attain higher knowledge and tread the path of service, things will usually seem better at ﬁrst. But if he continues and creates a ripple in the stagnation of inertia, a negative force will be automatically created that will attempt to pull him back; consequently, the last state of the person is worse than the ﬁrst.
This is illustrated in a parable of Jesus:
When the unclean spirit is gone out of a man, he walketh through dry places, seeking rest, and ﬁndeth none.
Then he saith, I will return into my house from whence I came out; and when he is come, he ﬁndeth it empty, swept, and garnished.Matt Then goeth he, and taketh with himself seven other spirits more wicked than himself, and they enter in and dwell there: and the last state of that man is worse than the ﬁrst. Even so shall it be also unto this wicked generation. Matt 12:43-45
When you take a greater step on the spiritual path (like saying the Song or participating in this group) it seems as if you have cast off some negativity in your life (evil spirit), but then a short time later you seem to ﬁnd yourself wrestling with forces greater than you have ever had before (seven times the negativity comes back to distract you).
Saying the Song seemed to work well with neutralizing one unit of energy and just when you thought life was getting better an attack comes with the strength of seven. When this negative attack comes many people just throw their hands in the air and say “this is just not worth it! Things are harder when I try, so why make an effort?” These people will often just give up, and go back to their old way of living.
But he who continues on the path, in season and out of season, and perseveres through obstacles will find the negativity will soon subside and he will enter a plateau of peace greater than ever experienced.
If you are taught by a false teacher that is taking you nowhere this type of negativity is not something you will have to worry about, but if you are treading the path of true progress you must earn every step that you take. Those who say the path is effortless are entirely wrong. Standing still is effortless. True progress takes a tremendous struggle – there is no other way.
Only through a great struggle can you obtain a fullness of joy. If you think of it you cannot imagine unspeakable joy without some type of struggle and accomplishment. Thus we must be prepared always for the one unit of negativity that we always have to deal with and then the seven units when we make a greater spiritual attempt.
Saying the Song and keeping your attention on the Light and Peace within will easily neutralize the regular voltage of negativity, but when the storm of the seven comes the Song and your rightfully placed attention will give you power to overcome it if you do not yield to the line of least resistance.
As I said the most important protection from the Song is from the spiritual forces of the sevenfold energy. This protection must be realized by you before the protection can ﬁlter down to the physical level. When your heart is centered on Peace, and your mind on Light, and you cannot be moved from this place, then you will receive essential physical protection. Notice that I say essential.
There are certain physical problems you will have no matter how much you pray, meditate or say the Song. For instance:
(1) Things you have to work out because of Karma.
(2) If you are careless or ignore messages from within certain accidents may be unavoidable.
(3) You may have ill health because you are not taking proper care of your body, or have a lesson to learn.
On the other hand, if you feel inwardly called to the service of light and follow the messages received through your soul, you will receive the protection necessary to carry out your mission.
