    Default The Wisdom of the Soul - CHAPTER XVI - THE VISION

    CHAPTER XVI

    THE VISION

    ON the evening of December 10th, 1954, when the Templars' committee had assembled for their weekly meeting, a vision was shown me by the Master Oneferu, and I shall describe it here so that the reader can see it in his " mind's eye." It is symbolical of present day confusion and depicts the battle that is taking place for the Soul of the World:—

    I (El Eros) am viewing a scene as from a great height. This is set in a spacious round building and for want of a better description, let me say it resembles the Royal Albert Hall in London. Round the arena are many doors at equal distances apart, most of which are barred and bolted.

    My attention is drawn to one door in particular, which is open, and standing guard at its entrance is a knight in silver-white armour. His hands are clasping the hilt of a cross sword which is sheathed and resting point downwards on the marble floor. This is the same knight that I have seen on several occasions over many years. I know him as the Keeper of the Grail (which is the symbolised form of Cosmic Truth or God-consciousness), the Father-King El Daoud.

    In the very centre of this vast hall is a large circular table around which are placed chairs corresponding to the doorways which I have already mentioned. Massed all round is a vast milling crowd of people of all races and beliefs.

    On the far side of the circular table stands a priest-like figure dressed in white, and emitting iridescent colours from time to time so that he flashes like a jewel. He points to a pair of scales placed in the centre of the table. He, himself, is standing at the sign of Aquarius, for the table is divided into the twelve signs of the Zodiac.

    The priest now raises his right hand and he is seen to be holding a twin feather, gold down one side and purple down the other. The crowds about him are silent and watch to see what he will do and say.

    The Feather, he tells them, is the Feather of Truth which would outweigh, in spirituality, all earthly wealth and achievement. Then he places his Feather upon the scales, inviting the multitudes to place their mortal wealth and achievements on the vacant or opposing scale. There is much laughter and jeering at the suggestion of a mere feather outweighing the combined mass of earthly wealth and power.

    One by one the Earth's rulers throw on to the scales their worldly goods, but the Feather outweighs them all and the people begin to wonder. Some drift over to the far side of the Hall, where the followers of the white priest stand, and bring with them their wealth to be given in the service of spirituality.

    A white radiance which forms a cone from a point high up in space covers the top of the table upon which stands the scales. This is the light of Truth and Understanding which shall enter all places of darkness to show those who dwell therein the light of true knowledge. Those who see and understand shall be clothed in its healing rays, but those who reject it shall be cast into the refining fires of their own Karmic making.

    (I understood that this was the true meaning of Hell, as opposed to the light of understanding, which is the state referred to as Heaven and the Kingdom of God.)
    Then I see, cloaked in the shadows of materiality and self will, a powerful Earthly Ruler, who, with his followers, defies the light of the spirit and dedicates himself to worldly might, seeking to dominate the whole Earth. And the white priest warns him of his folly, telling him that others like him were tempted and had fallen.

    Now there appears to be a great conference amongst this ruler's satellites as to whether or not they should help him in his greed for power and omnipotence, against the spiritual powers symbolised by the Feather.

    The Black Lord's House is already divided against itself for his supporters are separating into opposing groups. Certain of his followers beg him to pause and not be too precipitous in challenging the Feather. Some are for an immediate trial of strength. Others point out that failure would mean destruction and the loss of all their worldly power. Yet how could a symbolical feather hope to match them, and the material power and riches at their command ?

    The radiance covering the table, now widens its circle, and as its cleansing rays sweep outwards, it sears and discomforts all those who are in disharmony with the spiritual knowledge which it brings. It fills them with the foreboding of disaster and many more detach themselves and walk fearlessly into the light.

    As the ranks of the Black Master become smaller, it seems that his power is concentrated into a dark pillar or column, and many of those within its dark circle are filled with fear and are quarrelling amongst themselves. Some are urging one thing and some another, yet clearly action must be taken for his sphere of dictatorship is gradually narrowing and shrinking.

    Whilst they take council, they see the Feather still outbalancing all earthly wealth and power, and they throw themselves to the ground, forsaking the Black Ruler who is left with his load of material ambition and power, now too heavy for him to support. Those who have been his vassels in the past, now deny his authority when he bids them cast the Crest Jewel of his evil power on to the scales. Seeing that he stands alone, he prepares to use all the power at his command to destroy mankind, although he knows that it will also destroy him. But before he can do this, there is a great earthquake and he is swallowed up and buried beneath his own iniquities.

    The Earth is saved, and the multitudes turn again and follow after the Truth and give their hearts to Love and Brotherhood.

    A great brightness envelopes the whole scene and beautiful music is heard which manifests itself as a swirling mass of rainbow colours.

    All has faded, and where had been the table and the scales, there rises a white Lotus flower, its yellow stamens reaching upwards like hands, seeking the Spiritual Essence within a descending sea of colour.

    Then a voice like silver is heard, "I am the heart of the Son, I am come for the Marriage Feast, when all mankind shall be received back into the womb of the great Cosmic Trinity. So endeth the first day of God, the Universal Creator of All Things that ARE, that WILL BE, time without end, where there is no time, ever growing bigger, more vast, without end, Eternally— Amen."

    Default The world we live in - CHAPTER I - THE DAWNING OF POWER

    PART II
    THE WORLD WE LIVE IN


    CHAPTER I

    THE DAWNING OF POWER

    WHY have we, the human race, arrived at such a state of confusion and chaos ?

    This is a question that is posed very often these days, yet nobody seems to have given the correct answer. If we are to find it then we must go away back to the beginning of things and search out the fundamental truths which were incorporated in Man.

    These have survived, being eternal, even to this present age of chaos, but for the most part he is unaware of the still small voice always ready to be of spiritual service to him.

    If we think carefully, and reason with ourselves, we are brought to the realisation that in the beginning (whenever that may have been) Man was educated and cared for by Nature, and so long as he observed the laws by which she operated, then all things were well for him.

    Mankind lived in harmony and peace with all Creation. The animals were also peaceful and there was a bond of companionship and love between the human and animal kingdom.

    As time moved on, some human beings awakened more quickly to the wonders surrounding them than did others.

    At first this was harmless, and the desire to obtain power for personal benefit had not yet presented itself to Man's mind as being the first essential of human existence.

    Finally, however, with the accumulation of knowledge, this came about, and he grew aware of the wealth of natural laws and phenomena surrounding him. More and more he gave his attention to mastering them and finally turning them to his own purpose.

    At first no ill results were visible and the subtle process of free-will in its relationship to accumulating knowledge, crept on like a moving shadow, always going forward and bringing with it an ever growing light of understanding.

    At length came the day when, individually, Man realised that his knowledge was more than that of many of his companions; in fact, he could, with benefit to himself, make use of the labours of those less quickly awakening brethren around him. This appeared beneficial also for them, because they received food and lodging for their work and were relieved of the hazards which stalked all seeking to support life in those far off days.

    So it was that groups and clans sprang up within the human community of peoples, and each clan was dependent upon the intelligence and knowledge of its self-appointed Chief-man.

    At last these Chiefs began to realise a sense of well-being within themselves, and harboured a pride that their particular clan was superior to another, thus sowing the first seeds of what has eventually become world nationalism.

    Now the Chiefs of these clans had claimed areas of land over which they exercised control.

    All was still well, and peace and harmony reigned amongst them. As I have said, the subtle shadow of knowledge and understanding was ever creeping relentlessly onwards until at last it brought with it a realisation of power for domination over the lives and freedom of others.

    Yes, that was the first nail in the coffin of peace and brotherhood for mankind in those far off days.

    Do not be mistaken and think that Man was, as your scientists tell you, a brutish animal-like creature, warring with, and destroying, all who came near him. He was not. He was gentle and peace-loving until the day when he realised that he had within himself "Power." That, he argued, was his right to use as he willed, by reason of his greater knowledge which had gradually accumulated, until now he could dominate and control those of the human family who had not arrived at his state of understanding.

    He now ceased to be kind and gentle in his new-found knowledge, and forced his fellows to work for him for his own benefit, and on his own terms, having less and less regard for the conditions of those under his domination. With time the various self-appointed rulers coveted the lands and possessions of each other, and as obviously they could not obtain ownership of them by the mere fact of asking, they resorted to force, which is the firstborn of power.

    All this had proceeded for many ages of Earth's time ; then there happened a thing which had not yet entered into Man's consciousness. Certain men became aware of a mysterious spiritual force within themselves which was quite apart from the purely physical body. Gradually they explained and taught this to others who in turn realised this fundamental truth and spread it further. At last the day came when certain men of intellect realised that this newly discovered spiritual understanding could be brought under an organised central control.

    Houses of spiritual learning were built and intending students could acquire knowledge under the guidance of teachers. These teachers, who had the pure spiritual wisdom, taught those who came to them that they must seek Truth within, even as they themselves had done.

    Then was it that the Chiefs, or Rulers, of the various communities began to realise the danger accruing to themselves, and devised a plan whereby it could be removed. They initiated centres of teaching, within the territories over which they had dominion, and under the guise of helping the people in spiritual matters, they elected teachers from amongst their own supporters. These had instructions to expunge gradually and unobtrusively all that conflicted with the code by which they lived and governed.

    At last we come to a social order having within its fabric Religious and Temporal power. Church and State, working side by side, sometimes in harmony and sometimes bitterly opposed, with Religion as the dominating force and controlling Secular authority.

    Default The world we live in - CHAPTER II - THE RISE OF EVIL

    CHAPTER II

    THE RISE OF EVIL

    IT is some seventeen-thousand years now since a great and wonderful civilization was engulfed, destroyed and despoiled by the monstrous but avenging forces of Nature.
    That Nature whose knowledge, if cherished as a thing of beauty and used for the benefit of mankind instead of for power and gain for selfish ends, can bring untold blessings upon the whole human race.

    Yes, Atlantis and all its marvellous culture was engulfed and sank beneath the bosom of the ocean.

    Today the only visible remains are the Azores, which are the summits of the great mountains of the Sacred Heights where dwelt the Sons of God, the divine Teachers, who in the great and Golden days governed and taught a satisfied and contented community of people.

    Then came the day when evil reared its head, as lust for power and domination swept through the consciousness of Man.

    The result was that divine knowledge was used for the benefit of those who had stolen its secrets, until finally such a potential of evil was created that Nature was spontaneously detonated, destroying all that came within the scope of her avenging hand.

    Yet, civilization did not entirely perish, for many colonists had left Atlantis during the centuries before the Great Cataclysm, and they brought their culture to parts of Western Europe, the Mediterranean, Egypt, India and China. Others of course, went in a westerly direction, and relics of the civilizations they founded are constantly being brought to light in the Americas.

    These were the beginnings of the new civilization which grew throughout the world, until over a period of some seventeen-thousand years it has developed into world culture as we know it today. Started, comparatively speaking, by pioneer bands of colonists and refugees who, moved by an inner consciousness or Cosmic urge, left their doomed homeland.

    Through the intervening periods of time, nations have risen and for a while dominated the world of their day, only to fall into decay and themselves become the prey of other and greater conquerors.

    Why have these various nations, within the Great Family of humanity, stood divided by war and greed for power and domination over their fellows, and why have they striven individually for dominion over the whole Earth ?

    The answer is given in the Osirian scripts, for in The Book of Truth, Part I,1 Chapters IV-VIII inclusive, we read in the Curse of Satanaku:
    Behold I, Satanaku, will strive with thee for the mastery of the world called Earth. I will defy and set at nought the commands of Godhead . . . those same commands shall I parody, in so much that men shall not know in which direction to turn, that they may receive the true word of the Father God . . . And I ... will cause thy twin names to be hated and despised of all men . . . because thou Adam-El-Daoud hast harkened unto the voice of thy female half, who is Evam, and hast listened unto the temptations that have proceeded out of her lips, so hast thou been the cause of Evil to bring dishonour upon the heads of those evolving Yehavic divine sparks. And I will wrest from thee the dominion of Earth, for, behold, I am a God even as thou.
    This curse of Eranus, or Lucifer, is the challenge which was thrown down by that Son of God when he, as a divine representative of Earth, was admonished by his elder brother Adam-El-Daoud, God's Viceroy for the Spheres of Matter and Gross Matter within our Solar System, because he was meddling with the evolutionary plan for the children of Earth.

    In the Biblical account, or legend, we are told that Adam lent an ear unto Eve, his female counterpart, and did eat of the tree of the knowledge of Good and Evil in the Garden of Eden.

    What happened, in fact, was that Eve, or Evam, according to Dhuman custom, acted as the medium or ear to her male half El Daoud, and gave him the knowledge of what Eranus had contrived to do with evolution, and also told him God's commands concerning Eranus' future.

    These were that Evil (personified by Eranus) was to be used to strengthen Man's purpose for good, by causing him to reincarnate over periods and thus work his way back to the original point in the divine plan when error or evil originated. Eranus' threat was that he would parody all God's commands so that Man would not know what was right and what was wrong.

    The Biblical legend, by misrepresenting the facts, put Eranus threat into operation. It talks of Adam and Eve as the first man and woman, whereas in reality they were among the first male-female Spirits created outside the Trinity of God the Father-Mother-Son.

    Eranus' "will" came into conflict with El Daoud's authority, and so the fight between Good and Evil was started

    In consequence of Eranus' Curse, and God's decision to use Evil to test or strengthen Good, we have had a constant fight being waged throughout the ages, ever since Man came into the mortal flesh. It has been a mental fight to a great extent because Man has freewill and can take whatever pathway he wishes. He can listen to the promptings of his lower-self which is in contact with all the lower astral vibrations of thought, or he can aspire to climb higher and reach upwards through his higher-self, or God-consciousness.

    In this way be can become a force for good upon Earth by his knowledge of the laws of nature, and by demonstrating the benefits to be gained in using them for the good of others.

    Jesus was such an example and put his teachings into practice.

    Default The world we live in - CHAPTER III - ATLANTEAN EMIGRATION

    CHAPTER III

    ATLANTEAN EMIGRATION

    WITH the fall and destruction of Atlantis, the ancient wisdom was, to a very great extent, lost and was only saved from complete obliteration through the emigrants who escaped. It was their descendants who gradually recaptured that knowledge and made it possible for mankind to rebuild again from the corner stones of their learning, culminating in present day civilization.

    During its thousands of years of prosperity, Atlantis became the greatest empire of the ancient or antediluvian world. Colonists and explorers made their ways both east and west, some going as far as China.1

    The Atlanteans were red men and the Red Indian tribes existing in the new world, previous to the Spanish invasions of Cortez, etc., were the direct descendants of the original Atlantean colonists.

    The Egyptians were also red men, and likewise had their origin from those Atlantean refugees and colonists who moved in an easterly direction prior to, and at, the flood.
    Noah's party separated into different colonies and so it came about that Mizrahim or Horhotep, son of Ham, son of Noah, disembarked at the spot where Alexandria now stands, whilst Noah and his party of boats proceeded onwards to the east, and beached on the coasts of Palestine and Asia Minor.

    Thus we see that it was the descendants of Noah, through his son Shem, who settled in the regions of Asia Minor and Mesopotamia. They later left Ur of the Chaldees after the birth of Abraham, circa 1780 B.C., and under the leadership of Jacob, or Israel as he became, wandered as nomadic tribes throughout Mesopotamia, Syria and Arabia; finally coming to the borders of Egypt, at the end of the 13th Egyptian Dynasty. The Egyptian social system which, as we have seen, traced its origin from the descendants of Ham, Horhotep, and their progeny, had collapsed and a state of anarchy existed throughout the land.

    These Israelites, Nomads, Shepherd Kings, or Hyksos, took advantage of the situation and consolidated themselves in the delta region of Lower Egypt, a rich grain producing area. They controlled Memphis and held the northern part of the country to ransom, whilst minor native Egyptian Princes ruled from Thebes. They maintained themselves for about four hundred and twenty years but were finally defeated by a Theban Prince called Khames2 and taken into bondage. They remained thus until the latter half of Amenhotep III's reign, when they commenced their "Exodus" into the Sinai Desert and finally to Palestine, under the leadership of Moses, Joshua, Samuel, etc.

    Archaeologists continually scoff at occult information concerning the construction of the Sphinx and Pyramids of Gizeh. They have loftily said that the Gizeh area has been so excavated that nothing could have possibly escaped them. They denied the existence of any temple near, or connected with, the Sphinx, and yet now the so-called Temple of the Sphinx (really the Temple of Purification for the intending neophyte before he was taken to the Sphinx) is open to sight-seeing tourists.

    These same authorities also scoffed at the idea that there were any passages or temples and chambers under the Sphinx and Pyramids.3

    Yet, today, we can see the results of the labours of the late Dr. Selim Hassan, an Egyptian who preferred to work out things for himself rather than accept orthodox dogma.
    He discovered a subway cut out of the living rock which passes under the causeway running from the Sphinx to the second Pyramid. From this subway shafts penetrate downwards some 130 feet connecting with rooms and chambers none of which bear any relationship to tombs or funerary chambers4. They are collonaded sanctuaries and hallways—temples and ritual chambers. In none of these has been found any trace of funerary accoutrements or sarcophagi. Why ? Because they are all part of the great Masonic Initiation centre planned by Mizrahim or Horhotep when he landed on the shores of Egypt at Alexandria, or I should say, where it now stands.

    Horhotep laid down the plans, and each of his successors, in turn, undertook to complete this masonic shrine. Within it are hidden all the laws for the government of nations, together with many scientific secrets of which modern science is only just touching the fringe.

    To come up to date, let us examine the discovery of the unfinished pyramid at Saquarah. The discoverer, Dr. Zaharia Gonheim, predicted that it would yield up the mummy of a Pharaoh, but when the alabaster sarcophagus was opened it was empty and, as Dr. Hayes of the Metropolitan Museum, New York, stated, was brand new and polished inside. In a report published by Mr. Leonard Cottrell of the B.B.C. in the Radio Times of August 6th, 1954, he says : "As is now known, the Sarcophagus discovered in a central chamber in the pyramid proved to be empty . . . The discoverer believes, and in this he is supported by a number of archaeologists, that the chamber containing the sealed but empty sarcophagus is a ' soul burial' intended for the Ka or spirit of the dead monarch. . . .

    Dr. Gonheim's theory, as I have explained, is that this was a dummy burial which had some connection with the "Heb-sed" ceremony, and whilst not all archaeologists agree with him, he is supported by Dr. William Hayes of the Metropolitan Museum of Art in New York, who was present at Saquarah and with whom I had the opportunity of talking."
    So you see at last, archaeology is seeking for an answer to the question : why are the bigger pyramids devoid of mummies ?

    In the Osirian scripts it has been clearly stated for the past thirty years that the larger pyramids are Initiation Temples and not tombs. The empty sarcophagus plays its part in the mock burial of the body of the intending initiate. It symbolises the burying of all those things appertaining to the material world, a negation of material mortal self, and a dedication of the spiritual self, the real self, to the commands of the spiritual force within incarnate Man.

    In the 1952/53 season Professor Emery found at Saquarah traces of a civilisation which existed six thousand years ago. He discovered the tomb of a king of the First Dynasty (Waji) equal in culture to that of Tutankhamen, who lived two thousand years later.

    These early Egyptians did not suddenly arrive at this state of civilisation. Were the Pharaonic Dynasties the result of an earlier race landing in Egypt, and bringing their civilization with them, asks Emery ?

    They were, in fact, the Atlantean Emigrants as has already been stated.

    1. In March, 1947, Colonel Maurice Sheahan, Far-Eastern Director of Trans-World Airways, saw from the air a giant pyramid in the remote mountains of the Sherjsi Province in West China. He estimated its height at one thousand feet and its width a bare one thousand five hundred feet. The Pyramid seemed completely to dwarf those of Egypt, he said to the Press.
    2. On June 26th, 1954, was found an intact and perfect stela giving the history and the expulsion of the Asiatic invaders of Egypt, called Hyksos. It stated that King Khamos was responsible for their final defeat circa 1600 B.C. On March 6th, 1926, I was given a detailed prophecy of which the aforegoing is the fulfilment. This document was in the hands of my publishers when my first books were issued in 1927.
    3. Herodotus, who visited Egypt immediately after its conquest by the Persian Cambyses, recounts that the Nile connects with a large chamber under the Great Pyramid and completely insulates it with water.
    4. In previous volumes, detailed prophecies foreshadowing these discoveries were included. Detailed plans were also given through to me in 1928. First of these discoveries started to be reported in the Press of March 4th, 1935, one of the headings reads "Subway found below Pyramids."

    Default The world we live in - CHAPTER IV - CHURCH AND STATE

    CHAPTER IV

    CHURCH AND STATE

    AS time progressed in Earth's affairs, nations both great and small, have risen and fallen giving place to immensely powerful modern empires. With this expansion the desire for power has gathered and grown in men's hearts.

    During this period, those who controlled religious thought realised that if they were to secure for themselves positions of undisputed power and wealth within the World's social structure, they must remove from orthodox teachings those beliefs which still remained, exhorting the individual to think for himself. Any suggestion indicating that he could find God and make his own contacts, without the State priestcraft interposing themselves, must be ruthlessly discouraged.

    And so, we see the gradual march to power of the State Churches with their dogmas and creeds, suppressing without mercy any who tried to bring true spiritual knowledge to the World.

    As we have said, Prophets and Teachers have returned to the Earth plane from time to time, and have carried the torch of God's Truths before them, and often they have suffered martyrdom for their fearlessness and courage.

    It has been asked how it was that the tyranny of orthodox repression throughout the ages, did not have the desired effect of extinguishing the light carried by these pioneers and Prophets of true spirituality. The fact is that the knowledge of the Spirit, when once realised, so penetrates men's hearts that they count mortal life and material things as nothing compared with the truth of spiritual at-one-ment.

    It is now well nigh two thousand years since Jesus came to Earth and raised the banner of Brotherhood and Love. The result is one that we all know. The State Church of the day at once sensed danger. They actually had no spiritual knowledge where-with to refute his teachings, so they tried to trap Jesus into saying and doing, things that were against Jewish law. They deliberately misinterpreted his sayings, when he was teaching, as blasphemy against Jehovah, and eventually they built a case around him which, according to the law of the day, demanded death. In other words, they could not refute the truths he taught so they saw that he was silenced beyond recall.

    Jesus said, "I come not to bring peace into the World, but a Sword."

    Well did he realise that when, eventually, Christianity became a State religion it would split into numerous sects and denominations, all bitterly opposed to each other even unto death.

    Jesus taught men to seek the Love of the Father which was enshrined within the consciousness of each individual. "Love thy neighbour as thyself," sums up exactly his interpretation of the essence of true brotherhood between men.

    To-day world religious denominations are in bitter opposition as to who holds the true knowledge of God. They crouch over the bones of their disintegrating untruths or dogmas like hungry dogs, lest they lose even that which they have.

    How many of the blind followers of orthodox Christianity to-day really know of the beginnings of the State-controlled Christian Church ?

    Rome was converted to Christianity by the Emperor Constantine's edict. The conversion was an uneasy one and required much compromise to bring it into effect. Yet, it had to come. The Emperor knew it, and the Christian Fathers knew it, and unless a wedding could be arranged between the followers of Mithra and the followers of Christianity there would be continued strife and bloodshed.1

    As the worship of the Sun was a great part of Mithraic thesis, it was amongst other things agreed that Sunday should be given a prominent place in the new religious constitution. There was little of Jesus' teachings in this Mithraic ritual, however, nor was Love given the first consideration as a necessary part of the Master's Teachings.

    So, the Church of Rome was born, to become the Roman Catholic Church as we know it to-day. A church which has committed some inexcusable deeds of savagery. A church, knowing many of the fundamental truths and mysteries, but one that has always made quite sure that they are kept within the knowledge of only a few, very few, of those controlling this Religious-Secular organisation.

    Some years ago, I had a very good friend who was not only a devout Catholic, but also a nobleman holding a position of honour within that Church.

    One evening we sat together in his flat discussing religion. Suddenly I asked him point blank what he thought of the Osirian Scripts which I had received inspirationally and which had just been published in book form. His reply was very remarkable and his words were to this effect. " Within these four walls I will admit," he said, "that we know all that is contained in your writings."

    "Then," I said, "why do you not give it to the people if you know it to be true?" "That would never do," he said; " once these things reached the masses we should lose our power."

    Maybe many will totally discredit my statements but I am not worried by this, it is the truth, and as such I tell it.

    Yes, Orthodoxy has not only withheld true knowledge from its adherents, but it has conveniently removed many who have been fearless enough to hold and propagate opposite views, however true they may have been.

    Look into the records of the Orthodox Christian Churches during the Middle and Late Middle Ages. You will find a veritable crime sheet. Remember the Spanish Inquisition; the political intrigues and murders carried out by the Borgias in Italy; Richlieu and Mazarin, Cardinals of the Roman Church and both consecutive heads of the French Government. They wore and carried the vestments and trappings of so-called priests of the Church which claims to be the mouthpiece of that Jesus whom they call "the Christ."

    The debit side of the account with God is not confined to the Roman Church alone. During the Reformation at the time of our own King Henry VIII, the Roman Church in England was persecuted just as mercilessly as it had persecuted others when in the heyday of its power. We should also recall the atrocities of the Huguenot Massacres carried out in France in the year 1575.

    I have touched on only those happenings within the Orthodox Christian Church which are known to most of us, and go down as some of the blackest spots in Ecclesiastical history. They are but a few of many such stories of tragedy, and intrigue for power, in the name of God.

    Sometimes the Church controlled absolute power, and sometimes the State.

    The swing back has come in the Communist countries to-day. Communism in Europe mostly flourishes in those countries where militant Catholicism is the State religion.

    This is no less the case in Russia, because the Russian and Greek Orthodox Churches are but a small step from Rome. In these countries whilst Ecclesiastical wealth was unbounded, the people lived in utter poverty. They were exploited by the Church which had control of vast acres of land and property, prior to the Communist revolution.

    To date this has swept over most of Europe, reversing the order of things. But one evil has begotten another, and the failure of the Church to teach sound truth to those under its charge has bred hatred and revenge in the hearts of the present generation. They have known poverty and hunger, and having been reared in such conditions are an easy prey for their Communist Masters and Exploiters.

    The true way of the Spirit does not fit in to the Communist way of life anymore than it did with orthodoxy. True, they still allow the Church to function, but only so long as it does not teach anything that is in conflict with the party machinery. Those who lead the Churches in these countries are carefully selected by the State and it is their duty to teach their youth only what upholds the Communist doctrines.

    Thus we see that the State also is committing, and has committed, crimes of murder and violence to ensure its continued domination.

    Do not mistake me, there are many true and God-fearing men within the ranks of orthodoxy, but they do not control the Ecclesiastical ship within the Secular State and must carry the banner of Truth almost single-handed. They do what good they can where they can, and in some countries they face life imprisonment and even death.

    Both Ecclesiastical and Secular power, then, are responsible for our present state of world chaos and spiritual bankruptcy.

    The climb back will be hard, but the world's karma to-day is Communism, bred and born through the ages by those holding power. When they should have thought of others, they thought only of themselves, and the under-dog could only pick up the crumbs that fell from the master's table. Now, through brotherhood and justice, these past injustices must be expiated. Not by force of the atomic bomb and war, but by the love and trust of one human being for another; the Brotherhood of Man throughout the world. We must remove all distrust and hatreds and remember that we are all children of the One God, the Great Creator of the Universe; and, sooner or later, we must conform to His plan which is complete at-one-ment with Him.

    1. It is often stated by Christian Theologians that there was no real link-up with Mithraism, but only a coincidental resemblance between certain rites. On the other hand, it is well-known that the Christian Church, at its various Synods and Convocations, has removed or re-written things that have not suited its leaders of the day.

    Default The world we live in - CHAPTER V - THE BABEL OF MANY VOICES

    CHAPTER V

    THE BABEL OF MANY VOICES

    WORLD religious thought today is like a veritable babel of dissentient voices all trying to shout one another down.

    Christianity has split into numerous sects, each one proclaiming that it, alone, has the essence of true knowledge. The Master Jesus knew this would happen, and he gave warning in this respect, when he said that a house divided against itself could not stand. Also he is quoted as saying, "I come not to bring peace but a sword," How true these sayings are in view of the present chaotic state of world religious thought.

    It is for this reason that the ordinary man and woman are breaking with Orthodoxy and are seeking the answer to life's problems for themselves. Some have ceased to believe in anything and are complete agnostics, even atheists. They see the so-called spiritual leaders of the world indulging in activities which are completely opposed to teachings they claim to endorse and uphold.

    Orthodox Christian writ, for instance, lays down the law, "Thou shalt not kill." Yet, when any of the Christian nations have been involved in war, they have conveniently enlisted the special sympathy and benediction of God in their countries' causes, whether they have been the guilty parties or not. God is at once made to condone this legalised murder especially for them, and raise the ban on bloodshed. The Commandment quoted above does not mean the laying down of arms in the face of aggression, but only to use them in upholding the principles of Truth and Justice.

    If they are going to bring humanity back to spiritual ways, then there must be a return to initial Truth; if not, present civilization will perish. The story is not new and nations have risen and fallen because fundamentally their spiritual outlook was wrong. They have typified an example of the "Wolf in Sheep's Clothing," and variously they have been swallowed up by a greater and bigger wolf.

    Amongst all the babel of orthodox squabbling as to who owns the greater knowledge of God, is the evangelist. He looms up from time to time, like a fanatical dreamer. Many such, I am sure, are individually honest, though some are not. The theme they usually adopt is that you must believe in a literal Bible and that unless you accept the divinity of Jesus you are the devil's own child and will be eternally tormented.

    Against these, we can quote the pronouncements of Dr. Barry, Bishop of Southwell, who said, " The Story of Adam and Eve in the Garden is not factual and it serves no Christian interest to pretend that it is. It does not describe an event which happened at the dawn of history." Dr. Barry is right in saying this, and it would be much better if there were more Churchmen courageous enough to come into the open and state their views.

    The time has come when Theologians throughout the world must get together and admit that God is not the personal property of any particular sect or creed, and that He dwells within the Soul-consciousness of each human being. Generally they speak as if He had created nothing more that mattered, in limitless eternal space, than our Earth. Let us face the facts; Earth is, comparatively speaking, just a small grain of dust. It will not be any more individual to other heavenly bodies than the mass-formation of the "Milky Way" is to us. Yet, orthodox Christian Teachings still insist that God sent His only begotten Son to the Earth. Why single out Earth, if He had really only one Son ? What was to happen, in the meantime, to all the other probably equally deserving planetary systems whirling in eternal space ?

    Almost, it would seem, they believe that the Universe was created to be the Earth's satellite ! We can appreciate this attitude in the less enlightened days of Jesus, when the Earth was considered to be the only world on which conscious life existed. In his time, the science of Astronomy had not reached that state of advancement which we claim today. If we accept this progress in the scientific field, then surely it follows that our reasoning powers must have progressed in proportion, and we should throw overboard all such untenable and illogical dogma.

    Default The world we live in - CHAPTER VI - CAUSES OF COMMUNISM

    CHAPTER VI

    CAUSES OF COMMUNISM

    TODAY it would appear that chaos and confusion reign throughout the entire world. The downward rush has increased steadily since the advent of this twentieth century. The two World Wars have left a litter of unsolved problems which defy even the most astute brains.

    As has been said earlier in this book, we live on this earth by the laws of cause and effect, and bad causes have bad effects. Both these wars were heralded as "the war to end all wars," yet those in control of the destinies of the Nations must have known—both victor and vanquished—that the slogan was still-born and doomed to an early burial.

    World War I was fought mainly for economic reasons and our enemies were well on the way to ousting the British Empire, as it was then almost always referred to, from its place of first-power of the world.

    Two blacks don't make a white, and our opponents were even more to blame than we had been in the past, when we strode on to undisputed conquest after conquest.
    Germany of 1914 was determined to dominate the world, and thought she had an almost certain chance of doing so by use of force if necessary. She had for long been building up her power with the sole aim of giving effect to her intended inroads into other countries.

    Britain on the other hand was not, and never had been, the aggressor. She intended to defend herself and all that she owned. So far so good, but she was not entirely blameless.

    Huge international armament-combines were trafficking in the lives of human beings for money. Armaments were made for friend and foe alike, and although not officially admitted, these facts became the property of many who perished in consequence, and whose sons and grandsons have carried down this knowledge. In both wars the cry went up "no profiteering," yet many made fortunes, literally out of the blood of those who perished in the fight for "freedom," as it was called.

    Previous to the rapid advance of education, many had grown up untutored and believing implicitly what they were told. The Press up to 1924 had been almost entirely right wing in bias. Then came the age of wireless, and huge Corporations such as the B.B.C. linked round the world, sending out and receiving news from all parts. The masses were at last able to know what was taking place in the other countries of the world, their world.

    Fearless men like Ghandi carried the banner of justice and freedom high and were sentenced to long periods of imprisonment as enemies of British rule. Yet they were not traitors or enemies ; they were doing the same as most Englishmen would have done had they found their country occupied by a foreigner who was exploiting them and their people.

    Let us be fair, and realise that the days have come when the old slogans justifying force and war will no longer stand, because this generation knows that wars are the result of international vested interests endeavouring to obtain control of world markets. Human beings are beginning to awaken to the fact that the Creator made all men without preference of rank, creed or race, and it is the duty of those who are more advanced than their fellows, to help them for their own good and not to exploit them.

    Why has China become Communist ? The reason is not far to seek. Europeans have exploited the Asiatic peoples for many years now, and this fact has not been overlooked by Soviet Russia, who has been quick to take advantage of an already difficult and deteriorating situation.

    Once again the cry is "freedom," and whilst we know that Russian or Communist ideas of freedom do not agree with those of the Western Nations, it has a very definite meaning for the peoples of Asia, who interpret it as freedom from foreign domina tion, and Russia has found fertile ground on which to sow her seed. She is helping the Chinese and supporting all who are throwing off the European yoke.

    It is no use to worry about the rights or wrongs of this or that "ism." Those Chinese who are now in early or middle manhood, are the children whose forebears were oppressed and exploited by those running the country for their own financial ends, whilst leaving the native communities to live as best they could. Consequently this generation is not trusting the occidental again. They see the dawn of a long awaited freedom, in which their native lands will once more be under their own control, or so they think. What they do not realise is that their new masters are the creatures of the Communist Central Organisation, and will be utterly ruthless even to their own people if it be necessary in the interests of the Communist doctrine. Theirs is not freedom in the full sense of the word. They may be free of the occidental, but they are now under the domination of men who will tolerate no opposition. The only political road is that one laid down by the Communist Party Executive.

    Communism is a policy of dictatorship and terror which brooks no interference, and ruthlessly sweeps aside all opposition. It is evil at the roots and is inspired by the forces of destruction, lusting for power and domination over the whole world.

    This was the curse of Lucifer (Eranus), that he would wrest Earth from the forces of love and spirituality and would rule it himself with those spiritual rebels who had followed him.

    Pacifism and apathy are the allies of this Anti-God-Force of Communism ; so let the youth of the free world cease to be like flies playing around a spider's web. They should take warning lest they lose their freedom as this monster creeps on and on, devouring all those who come within its reach. Remember, the systems by which the free world is governed may not yet be Utopian, but they are as Heaven to Hell when compared with Communist slavery.

    Default The world we live in - CHAPTER VII - THE ATOMIC CLOUD

    CHAPTER VII

    THE ATOMIC CLOUD

    AMONGST the many destructive forces gripping the world at the present moment is the threat of atomic warfare. This is, in fact, as great a menace as Communism. Yet we need not think in terms of War to realise that the present nuclear experiments being carried out in the United States and Russia, are building up a force that will destroy life on this planet, as we know it to-day.

    Eminent scientists admit that the amount of atomic experiments that can be carried out safely are limited, and that they do not know if, or when, that limit will be reached.

    The Master Oneferu told me as far back as 1928 that if Man continued his downward rush into materialism, he would be destroyed by the inventions of his own hands. To-day we have reached that very stage in Man's material progress.

    Both the United States and Russia are already fearful of the growing wave of opposition to their experiments. Recently Mr. Konstantinov, a Soviet Academician, wrote an article in Pravda, the Communist Party's newspaper, denouncing all those, both inside and outside Russia, who allowed themselves to be scared by the idea that an Atomic War would end present-day civilization. He said, "this view is theoretically false and politically harmful."

    Actually, the Communist rulers of Russia are at great pains to allay any fears on the part of their naturally superstitious people, especially the uneducated peasants, who would be likely to attribute any unexplained phenomena of weather, etc., to atomic experiments. Obviously the fears expressed by Western and United States scientists have seeped behind the "Iron Curtain." The Press, on the same day as it gave prominence to Mr. Konstantinov's prognostications, also printed the views of leading United States scientists who urged an enquiry into the effects of too many atomic tests. This is what the Federation of American Scientists said: "It should be clear that accelerated hydrogen-bomb tests by several Atomic Powers will ultimately reach a level which can be shown to be a serious threat to the genetic safety of all the people of the world."

    Well may fear grip the hearts of those who have unleashed this Frankenstein upon the world.

    On Monday, 7th March, 1955, the biggest explosion in a series of nuclear tests occurred in the Nevada Desert. Within a matters of hours, tornadoes, bringing hail, lightning, thunder and rain, swept across Kansas, Oklahoma, Texas, etc., causing millions of pounds worth of damage.

    Again the meteorologists denied that this had any connection with the atomic tests, but, says a Press report of Friday, nth March, 1955 :
    It is further noticed that the storms have occurred on both sides of the massive radio-active cloud caused by the explosion. This cloud travelling eastwards, was two miles above the Earth and was about one thousand miles long and two hundred miles wide. It has moved out over the Atlantic.

    Of course the official Meteorological bureau denied that this havoc and devastation was caused by the atomic experiment being carried out in the Nevada Desert.

    Suppose for one moment they officially espoused the idea, what do you think would be the result upon public opinion ? It might quite easily create a mass demand for the cessation of these experiments. This could only benefit the world if the Russian Proletariate were in a position to order their rulers to cease making atomic weapons also, but they are not.

    What is unofficial, carries no weight, and denials can always be put up to refute individual views. Therefore, officially, there is said to be no reason to suppose that atomic explosions cause the varied and devastating terrestrial upheavals which have been gradually increasing during the past eight years. Russia is playing the same game to keep her people unaware of the true facts.

    One thing nobody can deny is the proven fact that atomic weapons cause very far-reaching and disastrous effects to human beings who become contaminated with radio-active particles. Dr. Kimi Houda, a Japanese doctor who visited this country in March, 1955, stated that three-hundred thousand people died in Hiroshima and Nagasaki, only one-hundred thousand died from the actual bombing, the rest died the most terrible deaths from the effects of the radio-active conditions created.

    When we stop to think that these bombs would to-day be obsolete, we should do well to pause and ponder what the effects of a modern H-Bomb would be on any city. Science can't get away from these facts.

    What matter how the Earth is afflicted terrestrially, if it becomes unfit to contain and support human life by reason of the continued nuclear experiments, irrespective of war. This is the problem which faces humanity at this moment of time.

    Dr. Houda further stated that people in Japan are still becoming ill as the result of the Hiroshima and Nagasaki atom bombs after a period of 10 years. She said that quite recently a student fell ill in Tokyo. A blood test was taken and he was found to be suffering from radio-active disease contracted when Hiroshima was bombed.

    What the present atomic experiments produce eventually in the human race as a whole, only time will tell; then it may be too late. A leading member of the Atomic Commission said recently that the Earth could only take a limited number of atomic explosions and God alone, so far, knew what that fatal number was.

    There is no doubt that the peoples of the world are tired of wars and the constant threat of destruction and disruption of domestic life, and if allowed, they would live in peace with one another. Fundamentally men are the same the world over and they will react to, and follow, leadership. Thus the responsibility lies in the hands of those people who are shaping their destinies for good or for bad.

    Today, any Tom, Dick or Harry can seek political election, although he may not possess the necessary qualities to warrant his having a control over the lives of his fellow-men.

    In the ancient days of Atlantis and in early Egyptian times, all those aspiring to the leadership of men and nations had to qualify, through centres of Initiation and Learning. There they were schooled in the ethics of government. Their teachers lived by the highest moral standards necessary to produce and maintain a contented and prosperous community. Envy, malice, corruption, greed and lust for power for personal gain were not tolerated, and all persons exhibiting these qualities could never hope to hold public office however small the calling might be. How many of the world's present-day leaders would have qualified, I wonder ?

    The inference is quite clear for all to see. Distrust, and all those undesirable things, can only be fought and overcome by a change of heart in the rulers of the world. Absolute selflessness must first be their motto, for only in the negation of Self can faithful, honest and unswerving service be given to the communities over whom they rule.

    It is useless to discuss pacts for disarmament under present conditions. The West could, with a little self-analysis and conscientious searching, set its house in order. Communist Russia, on the other hand, would not under the Kremlin's present rulers. She has so saturated her satellites with her evil doctrines of force and hatred that any volte-face on her part now would bring about her own downfall.

    The only course open to the Anti-Communist nations is to hold the balance of power, so that the constructive Thought at present being poured upon mankind from the Spiritual planes can permeate humanity's consciousness. Eventually, this will balance the destructive Thought which seeks to kill all opposition and obtain its goal through force, if that be the only way open.

    On Wednesday, 9th March, 1955, Dr. Matthews, the Dean of St. Paul's, in a most excellent address over the B.B.C. called, ''The Churches and Psychical Research," pointed out that to the materially-minded man, things of the Spirit seemed illogical. That is so, and it is this material attitude which is causing the chaos and confusion into which we have drifted to-day—to the very brink of destruction.

    Gradually a spiritual light will dawn in the hearts of the new generation and, as I have just said, the rulers of the nations must, in the transition period, hold the balance of power until the young and tender spiritual child taking shape in the womb of humanity, is mature enough to speak for itself, as the one great voice of Universal Brotherhood and Fellowship amongst men.

    It is the duty of all who realise the tremendous power for Good that can be achieved by each individual, to direct his or her thoughts into the great pool of Universal Brotherhood.. This power will be the light that comes in the morning, driving away the darkness and fears of the night.

    Default The world we live in - CHAPTER VIII - UNKNOWN FORCES

    CHAPTER VIII

    UNKNOWN FORCES

    I HAVE been asked on many occasions to explain how the destruction of the Lemurian and Atlantean civilizations was the result of Man's discovery and misuse of Nature's secrets. The Atlantians certainly had no atomic bombs, and war in those far off times was fought with weapons such as swords and bows. How then could they have produced a situation in which their civilizations were destroyed ?

    In a broadcast of March, 1955, the Dean of St. Paul's (Dr. Matthews) said that it was always difficult to make people, with a material outlook, accept the existence of any factual spiritual forces. Very true, and it is because of this that humanity is in such a state of chaos at the present time.

    The destruction of these ancient continents was brought about through evil thought emanations on the earth. When negative, or evil thought forces are concentrated in great enough strength, they attract to themselves like forces from the astral planes, which are absorbed by those within the earth's mass. This causes an etheric reaction, eventually resulting in atmospheric and terrestrial disturbances. Once these forces have made contact with the material plane, they build up huge negative magnetic centres which act as receiving reservoirs, continuing to grow and grow until they come to such proportions that they culminate in a physical explosion.

    So-called orthodox science will, I am sure, scoff at this explanation as absurd, but let me remind them that they are only able to understand those things that come within the three-dimensional way of life. They have no conception of the different types of magnetism or electrical forces which exist within the great limitless Universe, or just how much they can affect the mass of our material earth. It is a matter of etheric chemistry of which they have no knowledge, and show a petulant disinclination to investigate.

    When a person is taking a drug that would eventually kill them, the doctor gradually reduces it, until finally the patient no longer craves for its stimulating effect.

    The same applies to evil or inharmonious Thought. The higher spiritual Thought Forces must be brought to the earth in sufficient quantity to offset and absorb the evil potential. In this case, humanity is the patient and the doctors are the spiritual teachers who have come to minister to its wants throughout the ages. To-day they are operating in larger numbers than ever before, because the malady of materialism is greater. Their task is to bring to mankind the medicine of constructive spiritual thought, so that in time it will not require the drug of anti-spiritual materialism which the black forces are using in their attempts to lure it to its destruction.

    Man must be made to realise the benefits that can be derived from the many inventions that have come through to the earth plane, if only he will use them for the good of humanity.

    In Atlantis the priests possessed a knowledge of harnessing the force of the Sun and using it for the benefit and comfort of humanity. Eventually this knowledge, along with many other natural discoveries, became the property of men who only wanted to use it for their own ends. The result was that they produced a thought potential upon Atlantis which caused it to be broken up, and finally submerged by terrestrial upheavals.

    To-day the menace is two-fold. Not only is the destructive thought potential tremendous, but in addition Man has gained a certain mastery over the laws of Nature which has allowed him to split the Atom. He can, as we have shown, destroy his Race with this discovery even if he does not use it in war. The important fact to note is, that he is experimenting with a destructive end in view, and not firstly for the benefits he can give to his fellow men by the peaceful uses of his newly acquired knowledge. The thought surrounding the knowledge is, at present, and was initially, destructive, and it will therefore collect around it all the evil potential with which the earth is becoming saturated.

    If he will only realise in time that the advantages to be gained by the peaceful application of his discoveries are enormous and could alter the entire conditions of human life upon Earth, then he will be on the way to recovering from the malady of materialism, which only seeks to turn acquired knowledge to purely commercial ends.

    At the present time, greed for money and power is drawing out of the earth its life force more quickly than it can be restored. I have a report in front of me which discusses the possibility of applied Solar Energy being investigated. This is, indeed, a step in the right direction, for once Man fully realises that he can obtain all the potential he wants from the Solar Force, then he will be in a position to cease draining the life blood out of the earth's mass in the form of oil, coal, etc. The earth has produced enough from its own sources of energy to bring humanity up to its present state, but we have reached a point when the demand has outstripped the supply and we must now learn to maintain ourselves through the knowledge we have gained, and are gaining, of the natural forces at our disposal.

    The ancient scientists, who also had spiritual understanding, knew how to store and harness the Solar Energy, and it was by this method that they lit their temples and houses in those far off days. This knowledge was lost to Earth with the birth and growth of materialism. None but the more material or astral mysticism remained to Man and the true Cosmic knowledge, guarded by the Priest-Pharaos of the so-called prehistoric dynasties of Egypt, was lost.

    It was at this point that Cosmic or Esoteric Masonry was usurped by Exoteric Masonry, which latter has flourished throughout the intervening ages to a greater or lesser extent but has to-day reached its lowest level of materialism, and is bereft of all the higher mysticism. A masonic friend of mine said, not so long ago, "What a pity that we cannot make a marriage, for it seems that you have the soul and we the body." He was not being facetious or sarcastic, but was speaking sincerely, being also a student of the spiritual facet of Masonry.

    Default The world we live in - CHAPTER IX - FALSE TRAILS

    CHAPTER IX

    FALSE TRAILS

    NUMEROUS red herrings and false trails are being drawn across the main roadway of spirituality for the express purpose of creating uncertainty and confusion in the minds of the masses throughout the world. Today is the day of the false prophets, referred to by Jesus as those who should come in his name.

    In The Book of Truth, Page 97, we read also: —
    And the face of my beloved son (Osiris) shall again stand before my chosen ones, that he may both shield the divine mysteries, in that he shall see that they be not given unto false prophets, and also that he may give of them freely to my faithful ones who are still true to that service which they now so gladly offer.

    This refers to the present day of Aquarius. If we look around us we shall see all manner of claims being put forward by persons averring contact with the spiritual planes by one device or another.

    Our Scientists will tell you that no human beings could exist on such and such a planet, because the atmosphere is marsh gas. This may well be true and would, therefore, exclude the possibility now being investigated by some, that there may be future landings from rocket-propelled machines sent off from our earth. The one faint possibility within our Solar System is the moon. This could be reached, scientists say, but the expense would be enormous, and the return journey very doubtful indeed. Any craft stranded on the moon for any length of time would be in the same predicament as a submarine which had dived to the ocean bed and could not surface again. We all know that with the supply of oxygen finished the crew would die of asphyxiation. The same would apply to a stranded aircraft on another planet.

    This equally excludes another much publicised and discussed theory at present gripping pseudo-scientists and occultists, also followers of science-fiction, who claim to be in touch with physical beings from other planets, who use material machines, do land, and can exist on the earth. They are, presumably, dealing with material physical bodies, as mention is made of foot prints from which it is alleged plaster casts were taken. Had these been spiritual beings they would not be in need of machines in any material form.1

    The latest red herring is the so-called mechanical medium. The general idea is an electrical circuit which, it is claimed, penetrates all layers of matter, etheric vibrations being set up which stimulate and induce spirit communication and manifestation.

    Why will these self-styled scientific researchers always confuse the electrical energy, which we know here in our three-dimensional state, with other forms of magnetism or energy existent outside the electric envelope? This surrounds our planet causing all material electrical impulses to deflect back upon the earth again.

    The only method of communication with spiritual forces is through a physical medium. The vital Force of Essence, which is incarnate in our bodies is a purely spiritual force. As such it can stretch out and contact other discarnate spiritual forces whilst itself still in the flesh.

    An electrical circuit does not produce a spiritual force, but builds up a material electrical energy which is the same as that given off and generated by the physical body. When contact is made with spirit forces through a medium, it is the spiritual counterpart of that medium which links with the spirit force it wishes to contact. An electrical man-made circuit generates only purely physical electricity and energy. It has no power to produce the spiritual kind.

    As for the claim that an instrument can increase the medium's powers of clairvoyance, clairaudience, healing, etc., we can see from what has already been said that material magnetic stimulation will not have any effect on the spirit of the medium or help it to greater and clearer spiritual contact. What it will do is to stimulate the physical brain, thus opening the doors of illusion and imagination from the purely physical level.
    I think I can do no better here than quote the Teacher Oneferu's pronouncements upon this subject: —
    "There are those on the earth plane who claim that instruments have been constructed akin to radio sets, which can produce the phenomena of mechanical mediumship. They can, it is claimed, produce voices and all kinds of communication with the spirit world. This is not so. The Black Forces are ever ready to lay such snares to trip the feet of the seeker. A spirit, when enclosed by the flesh body has physical senses. When a spirit takes control of a medium, it has to use the voice-box, ears, even eyes if necessary, though it is better if the eyes remain closed as it allows the third, or etheric eye to be used more freely. The controlling spirit requires to use all the medium's physical means of expression.

    If you build an electrical circuit it will only be able to reproduce a physical sound or voice produced in the first instance from a physical source.

    A discarnate spirit lives in a dimension outside the three-dimensional physical realm of gross matter, and does not function on paralleled lines. When incarnate you have a physical ear with which to hear sounds. Those discarnate function by different laws.
    A discarnate spirit does not manifest sound as you know it in your three-dimensional plane of matter, and a radio circuit could not bridge the gap and translate the thought-message into sound. The forces of evil are using this idea to tempt people to deviate from the path of soul consciousness in an effort to get easy information."

    These radio machines provide fertile soil for fraudulent practices, and a clever radio specialist will be able to fake almost anything so that the uninitiated amateur will be completely hoaxed. The stumbling block to most psychical research is that investigators always fall into the error of assuming that they are dealing with conditions similar to our own. The spirit planes manifest through Thought, and the physical plane through the sound of the spoken word to interpret the thought.

    The Dean of St. Paul's, Dr. Matthews, said in a broadcast in March, 1955, that spiritual communication was, in his view, the result of extra-sensory perception. That is so, my Teacher has often told me, but it requires the physical organism of the larynx to give expression to the thought of a discarnate spirit sensitising our brain cells. The brain must transmit the thought into sound and expression. A man-made robot radio-circuit cannot do this. Apart from the fact that we have to find spiritual contact through our own selves, and through the learning and conquering of personal or individual faults, there are also other, and very good reasons why communication through such a device would not be allowed, and is not in the scheme of God's Plan. I again quote the Master Oneferu: —
    "Those who dwell in the planes of spirit live within their own particular thought band, and are conscious only of those things that come within it. Imagine the chaos and confusion that would exist if all sorts and conditions of men could purchase a man-made medium for 'thirty pieces of silver/ As like attracts like, incarnate possessors of such a mechanical medium would contact an exactly corresponding individuality in spirit to their own.

    This is the age of false prophets and all those who seek to deceive and destroy the truth. The human personality invariably has an affinity for that which is sensational against those things that are true and simple. The sensational creates importance in the eyes of others."

    If robot communication were possible it would be one of the greatest triumphs for the Black Forces of Lucifer. We should crucify Jesus all over again by forsaking his teachings and descending into gross materialism in the making of robot mediums.

    The teachings of the Master Jesus are initial Truths, and therefore eternal, and do not depend upon the advancement of material science which today is bringing humanity within sight of a disaster even greater than that which befell Atlantis.


    1. The magnetic conveyances referred to on Pages 158/9 of my recent book, Atlantis to the Latter Days, do not become gross matter when within the ionosphere (Electric envelope) but manifest as forms of etherialised matter which register on radar screens as airborne objects. There are no such things as material space-craft carrying visitants from other planets, and with time, and continued lack of proof, these claims will die. This I was told in early 1954, and the statement was duly published.
