Love and hypnotism

A man can fall in love with a woman, and even if she is most obnoxious toward him, he still loves her, even when he sees the harm she is causing him by her actions toward him.

De-hypnotization can be achieved when a hypnotized person learns how to think clearly, with logic and reason, and through the Law of Karma and its consequences.

Those who fall in love and make love for a while but then separate are those who suffer for a long time due to the fact that they both are hypnotized by each other.

In some cases they take a reverse path to cut their ties. They hate each other and try to hurt each other to keep themselves away from each other. This creates a more complicated problem because in hatred they come closer to each other. This is a mental and emotional closeness, but a reverse approach.

Often such a relationship leads to crime and murder, according to the created posthypnotic suggestions.

In the future a totally new science will be developed to welcome babies

In the future, newborn babies will be examined by highly advanced psychiatrists who will be able to see the different psychology, mood, and radiation of the babies.

A totally new science will be developed to welcome babies and detect very valuable information about the journey they took to reach the physical plane. This science will be able to dissociate parental effects, even effects of inheritance, from the psychic condition of the babies and formulate various methods of handling the babies.

Sometimes it will even be possible to see in the mirror of the babies' aura the video tape of their journey.

Such a science eventually will discover not only the "location" of the babies' departure but also the evidence of their mundane life in the past.

Through this science will be discovered also the secret of karmic relationships with parents and sisters and brothers.

This fascinating science will slowly develop toward the year 2050. The psychiatrists at that time will have degrees in astrology and electronics, and some of them will be clairvoyants.

After observing the baby medically, astrologically, and psychologically, a good forecast can be given to the parents about how to deal with that baby and in what atmosphere to raise him or her.

When this science develops, then every child will be directed to the right duty, the right field, and the right responsibility. In this way a great amount of energy, time, and life will be economized.

Most people do not have the memory of their dharma, and they wander through many different fields until they reach age sixty or seventy. Then they remember what to do, but all their former years were wasted.

A professional group can guide the life of the baby, forecasting his potentials, tendencies, and weaknesses  -- something that is not done yet. This group of professionals can even develop a system of meditation or contemplation through which the growing person slowly starts to remember his dharma and guide his life accordingly.

The most precious elements that must be presented to the newcomer are love and welcoming. The baby's soul will crave these two substances. Often most mothers will give these substances to their babies, but the maternity hospital must be a place of love, beauty, and blessing.

A child who comes into such an atmosphere will remember his dharma, his responsibilities, and from the beginning such a memory will be his guide.

If the relationship between the Solar Angel and the human soul is established and conscious, the memory of dharma will never fade, and year after year it will inspire the person and urge him ahead.

Do animals dream? - The astral life of animals

People often ask if animals dream. Some say yes, but their dreams are a repetition of events which strongly impressed them during their waking hours.

The fact is that animals dream, but their dreams are not a repetition of events which strongly impressed them during their waking hours. An animal, a bird, even an insect lives half in the astral and half in the physical plane, and when the animal sleeps he awakens totally in the astral plane and lives a total replica of his physical life.

For example, a bear's hibernation is not an unconscious period but a period of total astral activity. With his astral body the bear lives in the astral plane as he would live on the physical plane. Even he nourishes himself with astral foods. By nourishing his astral body during hibernation he nourishes his physical body and when his hibernation is over he awakens and continues the same life as if there were no difference between these two dimensions.

When animals are killed they suffer for a long time because after they leave their bodies they continue to experience the form of their dying in the astral plane.

Animals, of course, are affected by their physical experiences, for example, when they are beaten or left alone and hungry. But this is not only a physical experience for them. It is both physical and astral. A hungry dog when he sleeps is a hungry dog in the astral plane. The life of animals simultaneously runs both in the astral and physical planes with no difference whatsoever.

Some animals live more in the astral plane than in the physical plane. Some live more in the physical plane than the astral plane, but during sickness they withdraw to the astral plane in order not to feel the pain. Some animals, before they are shot or killed, escape to the astral plane to save themselves from experiencing the hardship of the process of dying in both planes. This is why killing animals causes them intense suffering.

Live in the moment? This is not right

Question: We are told not to live in the past or the future, but to live in the moment. Can you comment on this?

Answer: This is not right. Every true achievement is in the domain of the future. It is a challenge for others to be in the future. Every achievement leads you to the future. For example, a man becomes a great statesman who bring peace, prosperity, and joy to the world. Such a man is your future. He is showing you how you must live to be a future vision. Every achievement, every true development and unfoldment takes you to the future.

A little bud of the rose slowly opens and unfolds. Then the perfume comes out. This is the evolution of the future. This is what we are going to be. We must not be like elephants and put our noses into the mire of the present. Instead, we must look to the future and develop ourselves. The whole subject of Other Worlds challenges us to look at the future.

People think that solitude helps to conquer the lower self

People think that solitude helps to conquer the lower self. It depends on the person's level of understanding and energy. If a person is weak and flooded with glamors and illusions, blind urges and drives, solitude will not help him. It is better for him to have a friend around who bugs him so that he starts awakening. If he goes instead into solitude for two or three days, he becomes happy and remains on the same level of consciousness. That is why groups are necessary. Groups are boiling pots: either you survive or you degenerate. When people enter a group, their vanity, ego, and vices surface. Their good qualities also manifest and grow.

The result of most of today's music is an increase in criminals

The result of most of today's music is an increase in criminals. The rock voices make people totally insensitive to the life. It is a criminal process.

For ages people have known that with some music you cry. With other music you commit suicide. With some music you strive toward the highest. It is not a secret. Music, or noise, stimulates the seven chords in your makeup.

New music will be created that will cause headaches to vanish and enable you to relax. This music will break all crystallizations and regenerate you.

All obstacles will vanish once we release the Divinity within us

Once a husband and wife came to my office for counseling. I said to them, "What is the matter?"
"Well," said the husband, "she hates me, and I hate her."
"Because," I said, "you do not see the God behind your forms. Now, can you look at your wife? And can you look at your husband and by all means try to find the Divinity behind the form, the emotions, the thoughts? Try sincerely, and let us see if you can."
They looked at each other and they shook their heads.
"Come on,"I said, "you are doing good."
They began to look at each other and deep sadness covered their faces and tears came from their eyes, and suddenly they embraced each other.
"Did you see?" I said, "You have discovered the beauty in each other, the God in each other."

All obstacles within our emotional and mental spheres will vanish once we release the Divinity within us.

An increase in knowledge is not the same as expanding the consciousness

Remember that an increase in knowledge is not the same as expanding the consciousness. Unless one expands his consciousness, he cannot use his knowledge for the good of all humanity and the whole Universe.

A materialistic scientist is not aware of Higher Worlds and their relationship to the events happening on earth. His vision is limited; his judgement is horizontal, and therefore he is doomed to failure. Unless every action is considered in relation to Higher Worlds and the distant future, man is condemned to failure or even to suicide.

Healing through the voice

One of the best ways to heal yourself is to listen to your voice and change it if you are not feeling healthy. You will see a change in your relationships and that your health is changing them. Some people divorce not because they dislike each other. They divorce because their voices are constantly irritating each other and bringing them to a state where they can no longer tolerate each other''s voice. Actually it is not the voice; it is the chemistry behind the voice.

The agents of unreality

It is very interesting to discover that many agents of unreality are allowed to be on the path, just to mislead people and to direct them to the path that leads to the domain of unreality.

Such people know all the vocabulary of the Higher Teaching but do not have a realization of the Teaching. They are failures. And because they are failures, they have never touched the sacred rock of reality. In their hearts they do not believe in the existence of reality. Their pleasure is to mislead people in talking the language of reality to them and in advising them to follow the paths which take them away from the domain of reality.

These people are like "drug stores". They have all kinds of goodies to sell. Whatever you need you can buy from these "stores".

Some books written by such people or lectures given by them are like "drug stores."They have all their goodies just to sell or to appear that they are in business. Such books and persons do not change our state of consciousness or lead us to the reality latent within us. Instead, they keep us busy buying their goodies, which never contribute in discovering our own reality.

Those who only know the "language"of reality are many, and they have their business on the path. Such business people are the most dangerous tests on the path for a disciple to overcome.

A disciple must not only fight against unreality in himself but also fight against the embodiments of unreality on the path.

A victory over such people on the path leads disciples into higher dimensions of reality.

Reality is the expanding Self, going from glory to glory.

When your light increases, your virtues increase, but your vices also increase

If a person who is full of hatred, anger, fear, revenge, treason, and jealousy is given the Teaching, it will increase his vices. I have seen this many times. For example, a woman had a problem with jealousy. Then ten years later her jealousy became a viper. This occurred because she did not uproot that weed, which gradually was nourished by the Teaching. First you must work on the cleaning process, the work of purification. After you clean your personality, the dosage of Wisdom will increase and nourish the "flowers", not the "weeds" in your "garden." When your light increases, your virtues increase. And when your light increases, your vices also increase.

In spring, you can see in your garden that all of the weeds as well as the flowers grow and bloom. The Sun gives Its energy, and the vices and virtues grow side by side. A good gardener will be able to slowly, slowly remove the bad seeds from his garden, so when the energy comes, only the good plants will start growing within him.

Stability is the foundation of every kind of success, creativity, and progress

Stability is the foundation of every kind of success, creativity, and progress. If we do not cultivate stability, we cannot reach spiritual maturity. You must have a healthy and stable body, stable emotions, stable mind, stable heart, stable friendships, stable respect for others, stable progress, and stable cooperation. If this stability exists in your life, you have a runway and your airplane can fly.

There are higher stabilities. There is stability in meditation -- your mind is stable. Why can you not meditate? You cannot because your are unstable. How can you build spiritual mansions when there is no stability?

There is no stability because your heart has seven vipers:
1. Fear
2. Anger
3. Hatred
4. Jealousy
5. Revenge
6. Slander
7. Treason

And there are five devils in your mind:
1. Vanity
2. Ego
3. Separatism
4. Greed
5. Showing off

When these twelve exist within you, there is no stability in your consciousness.

If a very advanced psychiatrist were to examine the public, maybe eighty percent of them would be admitted to a mental institution. There is much mental instability. Instability is a contagious disease. To be free from this disease, you must have right motives in your mind. Let us say that you married a person with the right motive. You have a child with the right motive. You love your wife with the right motives. You love your friends, your Teacher, and everything that you are related with. This creates stability in your mind. If anyone has a wrong motive in a relationship with any person, with any job, or with anything, he will never have a stable mind. Your motives must be pure and correct -- absolutely open and sincere.

Our heart also needs stability. A heart can be stable if there are no guilt feelings. Sometimes you put blankets and lots of jewels on your "dead"body to pretend that you are beautiful. This does not create stability.  Any time you have guilt feelings, you destroy the stability of your inner and outer heart. Of course, you can see these things if you are totally sincere with yourself. If you are not playing hide and seek with yourself, you will succeed in seeing these things. When you play hide and seek, it is impossible to build stability in your heart.

A stable man is a giant, a leader. He is a source of joy and strength because he is together, integrated, and stable. A stable person is a refuge. He stands on his principles, on his directions, and in his visions.  You cannot move that man or that woman from their stability.

The technique of confusion

We see the technique of confusion working in the musical field. Rock music, disco, acid and punk rock music and their other sisters and brothers are there to create confusion - confusion in your musical sense, distortion in your mental field, distortion in the natural arrangement of the cells and atoms of your brain, distortion in those areas of your mental field which are oriented and polarized toward great visions, creativity, service, labor, and striving for greater achievements.
These fields are distorted by confusing music, and the followers of such music find themselves less and less interested in achieving moral and spiritual heights and serving humanity in its effort to solve the world's problem; they sink into apathy, goallessness, drugs, and they reject the values needed for the survival of humanity.

The same confusion is contrived and sold widely in the field of color and painting. So-called modern art is presenting us with confusing forms, forms that distort our sense of beauty and create a deep confusion of artistic values. The same confusion is proliferated in certain movements of dances, such as when you see girls and boys throwing themselves to the ground, rolling, screaming, and moving chaotically. Nature is geometrical, measured, arithmetical, ordered, rhythmic, and cyclic; but here you have movements and motions that are the reflections of chaotic emotions, thoughts, and inner conflicts.

Art has certain high aims: to sublimate, to uplift, to expand the human consciousness, and to create harmony and certainty.

People may defend such confused arts through their own philosophy, but one must wait and do years of research to find out that the exponents and followers of such music, dances, and paintings gradually lose their health and happiness. They lose their friends, and without a science of right human relationship they slowly descend into depression, hopelessness, failure, and even suicide.

Confusion is also created in religious and psychic fields. People everywhere are channeling "higher powers" and broadcasting their experiences. Most of these messages are shallow, funny, or contradictory. People are speaking in tongues, and tremendous chaos is created in the minds of the average person. Only the healthy ones found an escape from this trap by rejecting all that is given by such lower psychics.

This is the situation. They read your aura and your past lives, and the goal is to create confusion in you. After you are confused, you fall victim to the hands of those who are using such psychics and channels.

Confusion is an effort to destroy principles and ideas which people use to build their lives. Such an action is taken without presenting better principles and better ideas. Confusion is not easy to impose at once upon the minds of people. It is promoted gradually through doubt and by undermining spiritual standards, moral principles, and values.

Confusion causes paralysis in certain areas of our senses and nervous system. In confusion, right and wrong are equal, or both do not exist.

Physical purification

Physical purification is achieved by standing, as much as possible, for purity: pure food and pure sexual relationships or no relationships at all - the purest or none!

In sexual relations the auras of the two people mix together like two bottles of colored water. Let us say that one is yellow and the other is green with lots of germs -- not only physical germs but also the germs in the emotional, mental, and etheric contents of the aura. When the auras mix together, you become a "soup". What did you do to yourself? Your aura is polluted, so your inspiration will stop and you will not have the aspiration to be something. You will stop meditating. You will not read or study. Something falls apart within your system. This is the result of lack of purity. You will not even be able to appreciate beautiful things because your aura is like a soup. Pure relationships and pure food are important.

Discipline of speech

No one can advance on the path of perfection without severe discipline of speech and silence.

The Great Ones do not trust the secret keys of Nature to those who cannot use their tongues constructively, discriminatively, and are unable to keep silent.

During the period in which we learn how to keep our tongues under control, we master gradually our vanities, touchiness, show-offs, and fears and develop discrimination, listening, intuition, and strict watchfulness.

Every word that we utter creates a corresponding color, smell and note in our aura and in space. If these notes, colors or smells are not of high quality but are chaotic, disharmonious, and stagnant, the higher forces refuse to contact the man.

A disturbing speech is a discord and creates disorders in the organism and eventually sickness.

The sphere of solemnity is affected by noise, loud speech, silly jokes, ugly expressions, the clapping of hands, or by making jerky movements.

Man has a very important sense within himself. This sense can be hurt and stop functioning if a man continues with speech devoid of beauty, goodness, and truth. This is the sense which instantaneously lets him know right from wrong. It is not related to logic, thoughts, or reasoning. It is there like our eyes and ears to warn us from danger, but because of wrong speech and wrong acts, it becomes dull. Only in very rare occasions do we feel its warning.

As we increase our discipline of silence and right speech, the sense regenerates itself and comes into action. This is sometimes called "straight knowledge"or the "Voice of Silence" or the little voice of guidance within our heart that speaks to us when there is silence. Occult silence is a condition in our aura where there is utmost harmony and rhythm.

This voice is the guidance of the Transpersonal Self within us, and we can increase Its guidance only by listening and acting accordingly.

Manifested talents

People generally think that only art is art, but art is to live a life of example, the serving of people. Even a medical doctor can be an artist of peace. A national leader can be an expression of his talents, leadership talents.

It is the manifestation of principle, standards, ideas, and higher visions and dreams that you are bringing in many forms, in many places, in many colors. The result is to lead people into transmutation, transformation, transfiguration, and eventually resurrection, which is mastery over all impediments and hindrances.

Clean your mind from the false images about yourself and others

If you hate somebody, you imagine how ugly he is, and so on. You create a drama to justify your hatred. You justify your hatred because you have deceived yourself.

In order to hate somebody you create justification. And if that justification is wrong, you start working on something, doing something that is not based on any foundation at all. This kind of thinking within your mind creates storms, and then the rain comes. Try to clean your mind from the false images about yourself and others.

Also, people project their own ugliness on others and make them believe that they are ugly. In so doing, people also reinforce their own ugliness upon themselves. If they see beauty in others, they may impress the beauty on themselves.

It is YOU that builds your genes

I was reading in a medical book that the genes and DNA control the muscles, the glands, the behaviors, and the consciousness of people, but the doctors do not dare to question how these formations of genes came into being. How is it that you have cancer in your genes, or tuberculosis, and others do not? Is God really so unrighteous to create good genes in you and bad genes in them? Some doctors never dare to talk about these things because they are scared! Even if they know a little, they don't want to discuss these things because it affects their income, and for some their income is more important than your health problems.

Your thinking, your emotions, your actions, your speech create those recordings in your permanent atoms that eventually produce your genes. It is YOU that builds your genes. No one else builds them. God is not so crazy as to sit there and prescribe genes for you. Your genes are made by your own hands, by your own thoughts, by your own mouth, by your solar plexus or heart. The way that you are living and acting and relating to people creates your genes. That is why whatever you are, you are! You created it.

The Subtle World is the replica of the dense world

The Subtle World is the replica of the dense world - the life there is almost similar to the life we have here, but it is in astral matter. The life there runs almost like here. People do business, go to hospitals, drive, walk, until they emancipate themselves from the impressions of the Subtle World.

The illusion is so great that they live there exactly in the way they were living in the dense world. There are also wars there, armies and military equipment, and they hurt each other as they do here. There are millions of businesses and people who help each other, cooperate with each other, kill each other, wipe out each other for the sake of business, and make money in the subtle plane, money that they do not need at all.

Why does this happen? It is because people carry with them the earthly consciousness. When they enter into the Subtle World they think they are still in the dense world. If people do not have knowledge about the Subtle World and have not developed continuity of consciousness, they do not see any difference between the dense and the Subtle World and they continue their life as they were living in the dense world. This is because the life in the Subtle World is the projection of that which is in their consciousness.

Teachers or awakened people come to the Subtle World and try to help people there and tell them that this is a world of glamors and illusions, and urge them to detach themselves and prepare to enter the Fiery World. Of course the same thing happens there as here; people do not listen to those who want to awaken us.

Do not let the potentials sleep within you. If you can paint, start painting If you can sing, start singing. If you want to compose music, compose it. Your talent must not be kept inside.

Show that you are an example of the vision that you have. This not only sublimates and transforms your life, it transforms also the lives of others.

Glamor - Illusion - Maya

Glamor sets in your nature as a result of seeing the world through your wishes, desires, and ambitions.

Illusion forms if a truth or a principle in your mind is mixed with self-interest, selfish plans, and goals. Thus truth is taken from its purity and mixed with your ever-changing self-image and self-projections.

Maya is the crystallization of the forces in your etheric body that prevent perfect circulation of energy, and you feel weak. It happens when certain energies and forces come through your other bodies to actualize. Before actualization they meet the resistance of your habits -- primarily sexual habits.

The best thing for you at the present is to do meditation

With those people who are doing meditation you can see in their life that they are changing. I knew a lady. This lady was so tough. This lady was acting like a macho man. She can do everything, anything, swears, cusses. One day she came to me and said, "Do you think I am okay?" I said, "I see everything okay, but shall I give you a meditation to start doing?"

After doing three months of meditation, she came back and said, "I am very angry." "Why?" "You did not tell me I was a very bad bitch." "It is not my place to tell you that to you." "Why did you not tell me? I am doing meditation and looking at myself and I am just polluted trash." "Well lady, I do not say these things. It is better if you find it yourself." If I had told her, she was going to attack my throat immediately.

You are going to see. That is the beauty. You are going to see how silly you are, how stupid you are, how square you are, how tough you are, how unrefined you are. You are going to see it. When you see it, you are going to take constructive action and say, "Wow, it is better to put myself in shape because that is better."

How One Can Serve the Teacher

One of the requirements of progress on the path of achievement of perfection is the service that one can render to Teachers, Great Ones, and to his fellow human beings.

How One Can Serve the Teacher:

1. By understanding and practicing his wisdom.
2. By offering gifts to him.
3. By protecting him and his name from malice and slander.
4. By propagating his Teaching and continuing in his service when he passes away.
5. By not letting any of his creativity be lost after he passes away.
6. By not letting people distort his Teaching and his true image.
7. By sending love and blessings to him during his life on earth and in the hereafter.

The Lotus Sutra makes this very clear when it states that one can become a Buddha only after serving thousands of Buddhas through his many incarnations.

The supreme duty of marriage

Generally, the marriage of today is a contract between two people which gives them an official permit to have sex with one another, to have legal children and legal rights to each other's possessions.

But the REAL marriage goes beyond purely physical concerns. It is a fusion of the emotional nature of the man and woman. It is a synchronization or harmonization of the mental plane and fusion of the two souls into one rhythm.

Real marriage requires intelligent preparation and full readiness of its obligations. At present, the emphasis is on the physical relationship with some emotional and mental cooperation. In the future more and more people will realize that the supreme duty of marriage is to help each other in such a way that the divine Self within each one finds opportunities to gradually manifest Itself.

No disciples of the world attack any teaching or religion

No leaders in the Teaching, no disciples of the world attack any teaching, any religion, but carefully study them to find ideas and meanings.

Disciples are inclusive. They accept similarities, not differences. Difference for them creates the power of discrimination. Talking badly about any religion or teaching deprives those people who spiritually profit from them, or urges people to attack them in fanaticism. Ways and means to approach the Presence can be different -- but most teachings and religions seek the same ultimate goal.

Speech and health

You must learn to be silent in many, many instances. You must learn to speak only what needs to be said. Your level of achievement or whatever you are is the result of your speech. Even your sicknesses are related to your speech.

In all esoteric Teaching, there is great emphasis placed on speech - right speech without exaggeration. Even one word used unrighteously or improperly creates an effect on your consciousness.

Speech creates a tremendous vibration in your electromagnetic field. Wrong speech - criticism, lies, hatred - creates stones in your electromagnetic field. This is also the reason why great Teachers advise us to be silent when we are sick so that we heal ourselves more quickly. Whenever you speak about wrong things, you disturb and distort the symphony of your being, just like a man who enters a symphony hall and starts to bang on a barrel while the orchestra is playing. Whenever you distort your being, you cannot have health.

The Science of Complaints

Some people, because of their inner insecurity, express lots of complaints about the environment, about people, about the weather. This discourages people and directs their consciousness to unpleasant events existing in their environment.

A real person must never complain but instead try to analyze, observe, and encourage people in spite of conditions.

The atmosphere created by complaints can be highly toxic and flammable. Its affects the auras of people and slows down the centers of his immediate co-workers. Dark forces search for complaining people to destroy organizations.

Complaints sap the energy of co-workers and orient them negatively. They need, cheer,joy, positivity, courageous manners and attitude, not complaints.

Complaining also creates friction with the laws of nature and with the law of karma because nothing happens by accident, nothing happens outside of the law of karma. In the atmosphere of complaints no “flower”  flourishes. It has been observed for centuries that complaining destroys health, happiness, success, and prosperity, and builds a wall between the higher world and the lower world. Complaining leads to isolation.

Complaints impress on our mind that the effort of analysis, examination, or observation is hopeless, and you develop a rejecting attitude when life presents you with unpleasant events or conditions which are observed as such because of your psychological conditioning or education.

Complaints prevents your horizon from expanding and limits it to negative imagery. Complaints affects the imagination and thought form building process. Every complaint turns into a thought form through imagination, and time comes that the complaint is surrounded with negative and ugly thought forms and the person cannot free himself from their influence. Because of this his creativity decreases and his clear thinking slowly vanishes. The complainer becomes the victim of his complaints.

Instead of complaining you can study the events as if they were necessary part of life, teaching you lessons that you missed.

Complaints obscure the pathways of inspiration and the joy of touching higher worlds. Complaints create a psychic fog and even a cloud through which one cannot see the reality of superior values or register the flow of impressions so vital for the growth of the soul.

Every time you think of complaining, focus your heart on gratitude and observe. Complaints emanate waves of energy through ones voice, but the energy waves do not go into space. They turn inward and fill ones aura, thus creating psychic congestion.

Find a real Teacher who tells you directly what he thinks about you

Find a real Teacher whom you cannot buy, who tells you directly to your face what he thinks about you and how you can improve yourself. A real Teacher loves you but does not accept your failure, self-deception, and vanity. He breaks these things and sets you free.

"Soft" teachers, ones who are very sweet and polite and who do not dare to hurt your feelings, are called "caressers" in the old country. When a person is hurt because you take his mask away, it proves that his whole being is a sensitive wound, that he is not healthy. That is why he is sensitive, or touchy.

Caressers praise and flatter you. They talk about subjects that are pleasant to hear. But in the end you see that you are still the same person as you were before you met them.

All that occurs in the Subtle Worlds and here on earth is on record

It is very important to emphasize that the consciousness registers all that we do on all levels; it keeps these records in the permanent atoms and in the Chalice. When one passes away, he does not necessarily remember his past. Also, when he incarnates, he does not necessarily remember his experiences in the Subtle Worlds. Unless the Antahkarana is built, certain periods of life, both here and there, are left blank.

The records are stored in the atoms and in the Chalice, and they are also locked into the subconscious mind so that the consciousness is not limited, disturbed, or glamored by past records. In a normal state of mind, they are stored until the consciousness starts to function on the highest level of the mental plane and the Antahkarana is built between the lower and the higher mind and also between the higher mind and the Spiritual Triad.

It is possible to force the consciousness through drugs, hypnosis, or certain psychological techniques to remember certain events whose records are stored in the Chalice, permanent atoms, or subconscious mind. The results of this forcing are as follows:

1. Partial or distorted information is received.
2. The laws of Nature are violated.
3. Pressure is placed upon the permanent atoms and Chalice.
4. Negative physical effects on various glands occur.

The important point to remember is that all that occurs in the Subtle Worlds and here on earth is on record. The consciousness has access to these records if it is expanded purified, and connected with the centers to a certain degree. When Judgment Day comes, you and your consciousness will be able to see all that is recorded and decide your own destiny with absolute accuracy and righteousness.

Thus, man is the manifestation of his own karma. He is his own verdict and his own judge because of the continuation of consciousness, life after life.
