No Hierarchies on Earth

You understand, when I call my thought on hierarchies “idiosyncracies” that is a play on words.  I believe I am more than right.  I may not know the exact degree to which this should be reduced or revised, but a awful lot has to be done.  In heaven there may be a sort of hierarchy but this is never expressed on earth, not even in the most holy “orders”.  You find a ditch-digger half hidden in his ditch.  I see his heart miles above the bishops and yogacharies.

Gold?

How lucky for all of us that the Edmonton group chose to talk rather than keep “silence” which is the advice of so many “mystics”.  Or should Inayat Khan, Sam Lewis, and Jesus have kept silent rather than talking?  Or, can you see gold where it appears?  Hierarchies are games, which, rightly understood and used, have a purpose, but which most often are not rightly understood or used.

Healing

Health is natural, people will say.  Oh yes, but when we-all compete in living un-naturally, what have you?  So healing is required, but don’t give people the idea that you will or can heal them.  You might add a little lift to his/her own efforts.  Follow the script, the rules and put your soul in it and you will do all that is possible.  Sometimes, of course, an apparent “illness” is a way of terminating this life and any healing in that case would be an interference.  But don’t worry.  Life will take care of itself.

Pain

A special signal is pain.  As long as it is accepted as a signal and nothing else, it is good and does its work, fulfills its purpose.  If, in addition, it becomes a nuisance or even unacceptable suffering, this is a further signal that one has gone astray, that one has some revision to do.  Contact the Creator inside you and outside you, which is really your essential self.  Ask “Him” (or her?) why the healthful rays of the universe are not penetrating and completely healing you this very minute, and within seconds or at least hours you should have a reply.  The reply may be relief from pain and/or insight into what your should further do for improvement.

Diet

There comes a time for some, when no diet is necessary; the mind, the soul, masters the body at whatever diet or no diet is accepted. But generally people should not fool themselves and imagine they are on that stage.

God

Your trouble with “GOD” seems to come from loyalty to teachers and teachings.  I never had that.  From birth on I did not accept any church.  didn’t offend them either.  My mother and father were likewise, even though my mother was of a family of clerics.  She showed respect but had no faith in them.  “God” in my childhood, was a good playmate with lots of fun.  Later I found him inside myself — and in you.

When you predict a future of no energy and no ocean power you are making the God in you a bit too narrow.  For me, I know my duty to be to give all my energy to develop sensible patterns for the whole, and God and me (god in me) do not always succeed but we work on that assumption (that we do).  For God — the all — is not at all perfect or omnipotent at this time.  We limit him by time patterns. In the overall timeless space-time he and we are all-powerful.  In a limited time — no.

Energy

Apart from engineering I have worked in economics and banking, and in that capacity see a need for haste in energy development that may necessitate a faster progress than a leisurely technological view may indicate.  With the ability and temper of North Americans, this not merely can be achieved but favors our enterprise.

Also we have available energy sources that would make oil, coal, nucleonics superfluous.  I brought one such source to this country from France in the forties: The Ocean Thermal Difference System.  Free.  Unpolluting.  In the seventies the National Science Foundation finally caught up, now it is boosted by industry and universities — but — will Ford and Company listen?
