Monstaville Book I. Chapter 28
“Perpetual motion is the eternal law of life. Like human respiration, it manifests everywhere in attraction and repulsion. Every action provokes a reaction; every reaction is proportional to the action which provoked it. A harmonious action produces its harmonious counterpart. A discordant action necessitates a reaction which will look ill-regulated but will be, in reality, a balancing one. If you fight violence with violence, you will perpetuate violence; but if you oppose it with the strength of meekness, you will enable meekness to triumph and violence to be broken.”
(Studies In Hermetic Tradition: The Great Secret, or Occultism Unveiled by Eliphas Levi, The Aquarian Press, London, U.K., 1975; original book published in 1868).
You have to be more flexible - accept and flow with things more.
4 September 2002. Angel Cards: Light and Gratitude, two cards came out at once. Could mean that your trials and suffering provide the darkness necessary to make you embrace, appreciate and keep to the light, which may arrive later, in contrast.
“When you practice gratefulness, there is a sense of respect towards others.” - Dalai Lama.
“You must concentrate and be alert. Otherwise, you’ll lose. Think positive; you’ll win.” - Last Hurrah for Chivalry (directed by John Woo, 1979, Hong Kong).
Douglas Bader: Courage creating strength and hope coming out of disaster. Battling on.
12 September 2002. Angel Cards: Courage (yesterday) and Patience (today). As if these will help resolve my problems or see me through them. Plus, Communication - you have to deal with others to resolve these issues. No choice.
Flipsides: There is a thin line between courage and stupidity and perhaps also between self-control and fear (and responsibility and mediocrity!).
“One has to move in spite of all the doubts: that's what courage is. To be a courageous man does not mean that you have no fears. A man who has courage and a coward are not different basically. The coward has the idea to move into the dark, into the unknown, and the brave man also has the fear. But the brave man is one who listens to the call of the unknown in spite of the barriers of the known, and the coward is one who listens to the known in spite of the call of the unknown. He listens to the known, and the courageous man listens to the unknown; that is the only difference.
Both parts exist in every person. Every brave man has his coward behind him, but he does not listen to it. And every coward has his brave qualities hidden within him, but he has not listened to them. And to whatsoever part you listen, you become that.
So take courage. Always take the invitation of the unknown and your life will become an adventure.”
"The problem of life is that there is always an enemy who will kill or be killed. I fear what I can't control, and I can't control a mind of equal intelligence to my own." - Medra (Robert Crewdson), a partially-deformed alien with whom Ann Barlow (Patricia Haines), a scientist, arranges an interview. The alien (in The Nightcaller, directed by John Gilling, 1965) subsequently murders her. The purpose of his brief visit to Earth is that of luring young maidens back to Ganymede via a model agency and its magazine Bikini Girl in order that the survivors of his home world avoid extinction. (Anne comes across as a prim Sixties’ British woman so desperate for sexual adventures that she’s willing to take her chances and Medra resembles a pervert in a mackintosh whose deformity has turned him into a sexually-frustrated monster!).
The basic truth (that the West generally overlooks and misses out on)
Basically, people are semi-beast and semi-divine. Their past is animal and their future is divine. They are learning to rise above their animal nature and realise their divine nature, their true being. This requires self-discipline, controlling base instincts and crude, lustful, violent reactions. It requires learning to be and exist like gods, angels, spirits, rather than dumb or aggressive brutes. The pain of life is all about that growth, that evolution from beast to god. It breaks one from attachment to the body and material forms, and it liberates one from worldly bondage to live in the spirit even while on Earth. This is the test, the challenge, to be in the material world and physical body but not of either; rather, being the spirit and relating and relying on the spirit world, the heavens.
Purify your mind.
“If you understand the essential message of the Buddhadharma...you’ll know, ‘Oh! It’s simply a matter of purifying my mind and will’...once enlightened, you will never have unclean thoughts again. Why do people suffer? It is because of unclean thoughts. Why is there no suffering in the Land of Ultimate Bliss? It is because the people there have no impure thoughts. Thus, they endure none of the suffering, but enjoy every bliss.” - Tripitaka Master Hua (A General Explanation of the Buddha Speaks of Amitäbha Sütra, Sino-American Buddhist Association, Inc., CA, U.S., 1974, p.110).
Purity = bliss.
…deals of life." - From the Rosicrucian Code of Life.
The way I learnt to meditate was to send love to people (which I eventually saw being represented by and carried by pink light). It always felt very powerful and therefore lifted my mind to an elevated, meditative state. At the beginning, a tiny Tinkerbell figure would appear magically above the person’s head and sprinkle multi-coloured healing ‘glitter’ - particles of healing light - over them.
After that, during my twenties, I sent absent healing to people regularly although, over time, it has become something I have engaged in less and less frequently. There was a Native American healing guide named Micha with me, the source of potent energy for which my thoughts provided the focus. He doesn’t appear to be there any longer. I’m not sure. I’m too out of practice or stopped for too long on this occasion. I can feel that the healing energy I send now is nowhere near as strong. However, when people I know have had very serious health problems, other extremely powerful healing energies have been channelled through me. [Retrospective note: Micha, incidentally, is still around somewhere. I happened to mention his apparent absence to someone and, not long after, St. Germain introduced him to me during meditation!].
I surround the person with pink light, a gentle, loving pink for emotional states (and physical conditions I feel might be at least partially caused by emotional stress, etc) that need healing.
Blue healing light I use for physical ailments. I have used various colours in the past and still do sometimes but, generally, I use a beautiful, medium blue colour, directing it to the affected area. Or I see the person sitting in a shallow pool of this blue energy, also pouring down over them, as though it is water. And this energy naturally enters and fills the body too, bringing healing to everywhere it is needed. I may also visualise the person in a deep pool of blue healing light, either still, floating or moving around.
I raise them into the Christ Light. I view it high up somewhere, just kind of elevated in the spirit world, somewhere beyond both material and astral form. Basically, ‘wherever’ it is! For a few years, I imagined the individual surrounded by Light upon Isis’ lap in place of Horus, essentially invoking the healing power of the Divine Mother (which, of course, may also be represented by Mother Mary and her child Jesus but I’m simply too ‘pagan’ to even contemplate such an image!). [Retrospective note: I also imagined the recipient of healing energy lying comfortably in a temple of Isis being attended by priestesses for a while during 2008 and I have also imagined the person in a chamber inside a pyramid receiving healing energy from a powerful crystal]. It is pure white, the highest frequency one can imagine. I generally either just use this method (or, occasionally, direct white light to them), especially if I am stretched for time when I meditate, or finish the healing with it, kind of like a perfecting ‘polish.’ I imagine them feeling better, smiling, enjoying life, moving on from the experience, embracing happiness. I combine this with the Christ Light visualisation, seeing them in a perfected, pure, happy state there. [Retrospective note: I tend to use gold light now after learning that this is the colour customarily ascribed to the Christ energy which, really, appears to have been created as a collective bridge for humanity to experience the higher frequencies associated with white Light and ascend further. Also, I usually send the Violet Flame beforehand. And, in fact, since December 2009, I have worked with Isis directly at the end of my meditation, sending her blue Light from Sirius to all the people I know and intending/visualising every cell of each person on Earth filled with her white Light].
Since I have established this as my practice for helping people in need, I am unable to really relate to the practice of tonglen in which one endeavours, through compassion, to “take on the suffering and purify the karma of all beings, and to give them all your happiness, well-being, joy, and peace of mind.” (The Tibetan Book of Living and Dying by Sogyal Rinpoché, Rider & Co., U.K., 1992, p.206).
“Giving to others selflessly and anonymously, radiating light throughout the world and illuminating your own darkness, your virtue becomes a sanctuary for yourself and all beings.” - Laozi.
An ‘Atlantean’ meditation described in The Children of the Law of One and the Lost Teachings of Atlantis by Jon Peniel (page 343 onwards) explains that, through self-discipline and humility, we may drop the selfish, separate self. Through selfless love, ‘flexible and flowing,’ we may express the energy of our true essence. This is the pathway to God, through alignment with the Will of the universal Spirit. The meditation attunes us to the spirit within us, to our higher nature, inspiring us become sensitive to the needs of others through deep spiritual love and concern for everyone everywhere. We are, at this level of being, unselfishly giving. Unselfish love energy fills our being with peace, strengthening us in the process. ‘You are a blessing to all who come into contact with you.’ Surrender to the Universal Spirit’s Will. Let go so that whatever it needs to do through you, it will and you feel relaxed, happy and carefree. The positive power of the Universal Spirit turns obstacles into stepping stones. “In service to the Universal Spirit’s Will, you have tremendous courage and willpower. You are fearless and joyful. Serving the Universal Spirit makes you feel wonderful, happy and secure. You happily do whatever tasks the Universal Spirit needs you to do. You welcome the tasks you are given by the Universal Spirit. When you need to transcend upsetting emotions or emotional turmoil, you still feel people and events, but you feel them from the calm, peaceful and secure place...You remain emotionally protected, centred in your calm...” (Notes from a YouTube reading of the meditation).

“Let me not pray to be sheltered from dangers, but to be fearless in facing them.” - Rabindranath Tagore.
“If you’re never scared or embarrassed or hurt, it means you never take any chances.” – Julia Sorel.
“Our definition of the purest form of light is love. Love is how you feel it in your bodies, hearts and souls. What is happening is that you now have an opportunity to spread more light on this planet than you have ever had before. Please be aware that with light come shadows, and with shadows come fear. Fear is the opposite of love. Many of you believe that hate is the opposite of love, but hate is an emotion. Hate is a reaction. Hate is a fear-based belief system which we call BS. The balance of fear and love is now shifting on planet Earth, thanks to the work that many of you have been doing.
You carry love, and when you express your light, it not only flows through you to fill you up, but it also flows around you to help others. Spreading light gives you a confidence within your soul, helping to re-mind you of who you truly are. The absence of light creates darkness, which is how we define fear. Humans feel darkness in their souls through fear. We have spoken of fear many times, for it is actually a lack of information; it is only possible to be afraid of the unknown. Once you fill in that information, even if it is incorrect, you lose the grip of fear and get to deal with what really is...
Then we come to rooms like this. There are thousands of you who are watching this broadcast - the Lightworkers on planet Earth. For you, dear ones, fear is an opportunity for light. Fear is calling you into work. Fear is an opportunity for you to be of service on this planet now, and that is what you do so beautifully. You bring love. You bring light. You bring information where there is none, so you can release this entire process of fear. We ask you to carefully watch the words you speak. If they can be construed as fear-based in any way, re-word them to more accurately communicate. Many will also become very sensitive to fear-based messages, motivations and actions in your own world. Fear cannot control you when you are aware of it. Become aware of fear-based movements, as this is the typical manner in which humanity has been controlled for eons of time.
As you move out of the field of duality you will experience less of the light/dark, love/fear, good/bad, right/wrong, and up/down thinking. These opposites are now being balanced by a new connection to your own Higher Self. This is partly being facilitated by the crystals that are forming inside your own physical body, for they are going to help you. That which could have been very negative is now being adapted by the most adaptable beings throughout the universe...human beings. You are changing it all in the blink of an eye.”

"Don’t pay much attention to fear, because that is dangerous. If you pay much attention to fear you are feeding it, and it will grow. Turn your back to the fear and move towards love." - Osho.
"Fear in fact is the absence of love." - Osho.
"If fear is felt, then love is the problem. Become more loving." - Osho.
"Don't move the way fear makes you move. Move the way love makes you move. Move the way joy makes you move." - Osho.
