Spiritual Teaching

Those who have attained some degree of Higher enlightenment, should be very careful as to which esoteric teachings are revealed on-line. As careful also in large gatherings (classes, etc.). Powerful forces have kept the battle between good and evil raging long before time~ divisions started in heaven. The further along the Enlightened Path, the more subtle the temptation to see power as emanating from one's self as opposed to always our Divine Source. Many a priest has fallen, tricked into promoting options seemingly moral or normal on the surface, yet having a sinful barb. Once a student opens his mind to White Light (Spiritual Light~ Divine Light), which is of a much higher intensity than sunlight (in-fact can only been seen with the Spirit-eye~ which we all have) he or she is also now susceptible to demonic possession. The teacher must be available to the student 24/7, for if the student has any keen aptitude for enlightenment, dark forces will try to take the devotee out early-on in the relationship, by disease or tragic accident or possession. Physical Psychic Centers should not be stimulated, without first tutoring in mental and spiritual purification, which takes many years to approach in most cases. Fad books, casual meetings with yoga instructors (if not done purely for physical flexibility) can be dangerous to the participant when the instructor is not very mindful of saying too much too soon during the initiation. And the student, or seeker in good-faith wouldn't know it until it was too late, his or her body and soul in jeopardy. How does one find such an enlightened teacher? You don't! They will come when you are ready, drawn by your spirit-light. Just practice being a loving person best you can (that is my personal first advice to anyone). Most are hidden teachers...you would not recognize on the street. The best do not charge, nor hold group classes. Christ took his special followers aside often, for individual instruction. But not to be chosen so, does not imply that one has less or more intelligence than the next guy, nor is seen as being less holy~ we are equally important in God's greater scheme. Each with an individual mission. Often not giving in to lesser ego (the dominant I) is a great enough achievement. Learn, but learn carefully, I tell myself. Let God teach, not to let the Lesser-self be in control. Sharing knowledge on Chakra Petals, 7 Psychic Centers, Kundalini, crystals etc., as if they were all one-sided positives (harmless mind games or exercises), can be like putting a loaded gun in the hand of a 4 year old. Best left alone, if not approached with total dedication, extreme caution and understanding of the countless potentially cataclysmic outcomes. Not for the merely curious observer.

The person that is new on the path is easily misled by the subtle lies of evil. There are amny things than merely seem to be right. We need to always give credit and glory to the Source of our insights. Thanks for sharing from the wisdom you've been blessed with, Joe. Write On! my friend. Bill

Thank you, Bill; your feedback today has done my heart a world of good. Thank you so much for taking precious time to read and comment. As you say, I hope this one has some greater value than its words. Blessings!

Thank you for sharing from your combined experiences Joe & wife. Your prose was an excellent and enjoyable read, my friend. Your advice very good for those seeking a deeper understanding of the spiritual side of life and how it manifests in our physical lives. The warnings were especially good to share. Beware of principalities and powers, as the Bible says. Your words concerning the Light being desired by evil even though it is its goal to destroy Light, is insightful. The closer we walk in the Light and allow it to flow through us, the more desirable we are too evil.

God is the In and Out of existence: I will explain to the best of my ability. When one writes a sentence, words are separated by spaces -- spaces just as important as the words for any statement to be easily read (understood). Spaces exist, though they appear as emptiness within the sphere of sentient atmosphere. In a relatable sense, music rests are just as important to the composition as notes played. Those rests exist in a dimension outside what is normally thought of as tangible physical form. And with God, when one stands on the summit of enlightenment (the Seventh Heaven) and looks off, it is incomprehensible to the human mind~ there is no way of describing it...other than by saying, it is the “Out” of existence. Like the spaces between words, like the rests in a music composition, non existence is something real, substantive. The unknowable God.

When God creates, he creates from himself. He does not go some place else (there is no else) to get parts~ He is all in all. (therefore nothing can be separated out of Him). In essence all spiritual and physical being are one (in the body of God) (which is the in and out of existence combined), viewed from different aspects, degrees of consciousness. The pure spiritual archetype is unchangeable. The physical representation is what man's conscious (unconscious) mind creates (changeable) ( it is what the individual mind creates, while being aspects of one mind, one soul, one spirit expressing) (the mirror image of our degree of enlightenment or unfoldment). The most misunderstood concept is that of Free Will. If 5 items are on a table, and I am free to choose any one I like~ that is not Free Will. It is an illusion of Free Will. Were that true I would be a mere manipulated puppet.

For me to have Free Will, I would need infinite objects to choose from...in fact, have created my own table, and the very earth in which it resides. And I do believe that we have Free Will.

Quite interesting. I think I have nothing to fear since I am about as easy to become good at yoga and Yogi the Bear. I happen to believe we all have a "death day" and time will tell us when ours is. (interesting how you brought in crystals. I think they are dangerous. I tried mine and it is always contradicting itself, so I just stay away from it now)

For sure; all one need do is to embrace the loving presence within you...it will do all the rest needed for a happy, healthy existence. I am no authority, obviously...just my feelings on the subject...with 165 years of combined practical experience behind it, for the little that may be worth~ my wife as kooky as I am:) Blessings!

Interesting Joe, the demonic possession bit ~ it’s true no doubt since I have a close friend who’s a medium and has done several exorcisms. The ‘demon’ too wishes to embrace the light but is afraid to do so and so has to be assisted, with love. I agree that the energy body should not be forced open by yogic or other methods like Shaktipat. Still, many people are having spontaneous awakenings now. If the heart is pure, there’s nothing to fear. The journey is wonderful!

Again, my experience only, in physical form I have never met an entirely pure heart. Though I have met many wonderful people. I do my best, and then let God be the judge and determiner. Generally when I take the lead...I royally goof! I am inclined to think, that we should treat one another with an element of grace. Forgive and hope to be forgiven. A person with a forgiving heart is approaching pure.

Hello my friend; my wife, now in her 90's, taught Yoga and also was a teacher of Theosophy, so I have a semi respectable source (she just bopped me on the head) for direct research. I have worked with people demon possessed, have had deathly cold demons come around me during meditation attracted by the light, at which time I give it all to God for redemptive influence. I once helped ascend an American Indian Medicine Man, whose spirit had become trapped, held earthbound. Why he was in this predicament I do not know.

He came to me because my wife, of American Indian heritage, had some of his belongings in a room I frequent. I agree, there are many ready to instantaneously embrace the light~ that is why I talk (write my heart out)~ hoping to be of some small positive service to the Divine...maybe a smaller furnace for myself before the next journey. I know nothing...for me this all about helping to enlighten one another. Myself as needy as the next guy. You do a great service I think, your writings compelling and uplifting. Door openers. Blessings my friend.
