  • The End of the World

     

     

    People often do not know what to picture to themselves when they contemplate the question of the end of the world, if at all they give any heed to all the talk of the “End of the World” or the “End of Times”.

     

    Many, who feel the nature, frequency and intensities of events today, point to the approach of something about which mankind should seriously concern themselves, and cannot be swayed from thinking that there will be some culmination to all this development, and that the endpoint does not promise a gentle experience or happening. They intuitively perceive the approach of an end, and this perception is aided by the fact that many a prophesy exists about the “End of the World” or the “End of a Time”, a time or period that has to find mankind prepared, or prior to which they should have accomplished certain things.

     

    It also holds for some the potential for the end of everything that is, beyond which nothing would exist, leaving the ones who hold this view often concerned and anxious, simply due to the pressure of not knowing. Not knowing if they really should have accomplished some particular objective before this time, which would then qualify them for what may come next after the destruction of everything that currently is; or not knowing the form that this expected destruction would take and whether or not one would have to suffer painfully through the process. If at all there could be this end-time, would it then mean that those who were able to speak convincingly about it some millennia before were right, and that the other things that they also said and advocated with regards to the period (the End Time) and the happening were true?

     

    If that is the case, then which one of the numerous predictions and warnings about how to prepare for this “coming” period should they heed? How can one tell which is authentic and which in the end would prove to have been false? A state of anxious not-knowing for the one who has not been able to just brush aside the matter completely.

     

    For many a person who brushes it aside, however, he still does not fail to experience those moments when, from deep within him, something flares up like an unwelcome warning, urging him to prepare himself for that which will come and mark the end of the possibility for him to make a different decision, because there would no longer be the time for it, since the end would have come for the opportunity to learn and mature in this material school that has a definite time period of existence.

     

    This will mean the end of the cycle of existence of this material school itself, which would bring with it the disintegration of everything that has been formed in it, so that a new and more energized form can arise from the resultant basic units, aided by fresh spiritual students (new spirit seed-germs) sown like seeds into matter. A happening that affects every material form, whatever it may be, and takes it through the process of birth, through development and maturation, to flowering and bearing fruit, and then finally to disintegration back to its basic units, so that said basic units, newly-energized, can come together again to form something new, following the discharge of the energy that is the fruit of the just ended cycle.

     

    When this time comes for the earth, it would be best if the human spirits passing through it, in the course of their experiencing and maturing, would have already severed their ties and connections to it, so that they could move on towards the completion of their own development, in higher and more luminous spheres. If they found themselves unable to do this, then they would have to partake of the process of disintegration, which always entails a falling apart or even tearing down of what used to stand as a form in the material world.

     

    This would mean for them the tearing apart and disintegration together with matter of the personalities so far formed for those concerned, signifying their failure to have taken advantage of the period allotted them in matter to form themselves in such ways as would have allowed them to leave matter in order to eternally exist and transmit light in the Spiritual Realm as self-conscious spiritual beings.

     

    Where the gaze of a people has been lowered so as to have them consider as important only that which they can substantiate and estimate with their earthly senses, then such a people would through this continue to attach themselves to the physical and the earthly, with their intuitive perceptions, which shape their inner attitudes, thoughts, words and actions, and thus would not be able to see beyond this range in order to know any better. They would therefore sentence themselves to the experience of feeling the pain and effects of the tearing away from the material forms (which includes all conceptions bound to matter), which now have to fall apart in the natural process of their disintegration.

     

    They would have in a sense declared that they would like to experience the fate of all material substance, to which they bound themselves so tenaciously. Ignorance of the nature of the happening would not prevent it from taking place at the right hour, and in strict accordance with the natural laws. It would have been the fruit of their desiring.

     

    Man weaves a world for himself that agrees with the nature of his inner perceptions, his intuitive perceptions, which guide his thinking, speaking and acting. And as he intuitively perceives, thinks and acts, he emits radiations, or rather, like a magnet he pulls together for himself and around himself a world that is as distorted or as perfect as the nature of his perceptions. Through his connection to what he forms in this manner, he directs currents that flow through him, as an energy transmitter in Creation/the Universe, to them. What he attracts to himself as energy currents and transmits to the created forms (which are mostly invisible to the physical eyes), must accord in density and clarity to the nature of what he has formed.

     

     

    Through these connections he supplies sustaining nourishment to them, and they help keep him thinking and acting accordingly. Through him they are able to live, and through them he draws corresponding currents and pictures of how things are and work, in the natural reciprocal effect of his act of forming and sustaining them. They form a wall between him and reality, the boundary line of his capacity to recognise. He therefore forms through his actions his own capacity to see in Creation.

     

    And every movement within him is an action that assumes a corresponding form, which is composed of the same substance as the species of action (intuition being finer and lighter than thought, which is finer and lighter than the spoken word, which is finer and lighter in its nature and composition than a visible, outward action). The particular form assumed is animated in the manner described above.

     

    No two people can perceive their surroundings in exactly the same way, even if such an environment was the exact same physical one. This is because a person perceives and forms his own perceptions in a unique way. His unique perceptions then go on to contribute to what materializes on earth, together with the contributions of other unique personalities with their unique natures. They all participate in the forming but experience what has been formed in their own individual ways. The forms of their intuitive perceptions, thoughts, words and actions form the train of channels through which the impressions of earthly happenings reach the spirit residing within. And since the individual forms of perceptions and actions are all different, different channels to the spiritual cores involved must be different.

     

    A person experiences that environment that he shares with another according the nature of the world that he has himself formed with his inner attitude, his thinking and his speaking. This inner world that he has composed remains linked with him as long as he retains the kind of thinking and attitude that has brought it about. It is, therefore, also through the filtering effect of this his own inner world that he perceives the world that can appear uniform to the physical senses of every onlooker. The world he forms within himself is a particular variation of the world that he physically interacts with and shares with other unique individuals.

     

    The physical world can appear uniform, but the experiencing of it, what it triggers within the onlooker and unique contributor, is always different from that of the person just beside him. This is the case even if they had been through a similar upbringing in the same household, with the same parents and physical conditons. The way he has formed his inner world determines the way he views and experiences the outer one.

     

    But the formation of the inner world is something that can take place over several lifetimes on earth and does not just begin in the present one.

     

    A person who has built up an inner world that bases its source of happiness on an earthly and intellectually based sense of success and fulfilment, would form a narrow perceptive range for himself. He would draw superficially from the happenings around him, and he would react according to the narrowness of his perception. This narrowness agrees with his decision to confine his perception only to the narrow world of what is earthly, thus excluding the much larger parts associated with his existence, which include other planes or spheres of matter (that are inaccessible to the physical, gross material senses and investigative tools), with their differing degrees of fineness and permeability to Light radiations coming from the Origin of all movement. 

     

    What comes out of him cannot then form what is broadly beneficial but must reflect his narrow-mindedness and short-sightedness. In this way, his connection to centres of narrow perception keeps him fuelling his tendency to form a narrow inner world, with a narrow perceptive range. This his inner world then manifests as his psychic and physical conditions for him to experience, to reap. In this way, he would always draw from the physical setting or happening only what would agree with his narrow-mindedness, thereby also experiencing in the earthly that which he already gave rise to within him, and his reaction would be such as would serve to maintain this his inner world, and thus, also maintain the physical conditions, albeit, perhaps, in different forms. For his reaction would reflect a limited understanding, thus sowing the seeds for corresponding physical conditions; conditions likely to elicit a similar narrow-minded reaction from him. This is because he retains his capacity to draw material substance together for himself, like a magnet, according to the mould of his inner nature, whether or not this inner nature of his is upward-tending or downward.

     

    He would help the physical conditions develop differently, more beautifully, in a manner that permits the perception of more light, more understanding and greater clarity, if his inner world were such that allowed for this through its unique composition. Today, however, there is ignorance, one-sidedness, a general not-knowing that keeps mankind in the dark and at the mercy of what flows through their correspondingly distorted formations, which effectively and automatically act as veils through which their originators then try to see.

     

    The conditions within the family units, social, religious, economic, educational and governmental structures, all take after the very nature of the composition of the inner attitudes of men, hence, they reflect mankind’s general perception of how things work in the Universe/Creation and what to place value upon.

  • On the Question of a Final Decision

     

    Before getting into the matter of a final decision it would benefit the individual concerned if he determined for himself what the decision was about.

     

    A final decision gives indication of a cessation of opportunities to make further decisions, the one in question being the last one to be made. 

     

    What, in the life of man, could be accompanied by such a weighty situation in which he has to make a final choice and never get another chance afterwards? 

     

    The very nature of the finality of the situation already makes many a man not give the matter much weight or consideration. 

     

    It simply could not be; that things can get to a point where there is no longer the possibility of a reversal, an opportunity to do over or experience something once again, even if the happening were to occur after the physical death of the one concerned.

     

    In other words, many a man would find it difficult to accept that in a world where things are seen to go around in cycles, there could be an end, a cessation in the cycling. 

     

    There simply has to be the opportunity for the process, whatever it may be, to continue, even if in a changed and different form. 

     

    This perception causes many not to take seriously the question of a final decision, where it concerns man and his fate as a creature in Creation. 

     

    The assertion that man must make a final decision causes many in this camp to scoff and to point to the fact that calls have been ringing out in the past through men, considered to be prophets and spiritual helpers, for millennia now, urging mankind to prepare themselves for the final decision, the time of a final decision, the end-time, and yet generations of men have come and gone, and seem to keep coming and going.

     

    Why then should anyone put any stock in such assertions when they are made today?

     

    What would make the assertions or the situations at the time they are made any different from what has prevailed in the past?

     

    Those in this camp comprise men with a wide variety of perceptions in this matter.

     

    Their final conclusion, however, is that there is simply no sound reason to take such assertions seriously; some even feel that the ones who continue to make such assertions are to be pitied and helped to see more clearly, lest they spend their existence on earth in some fanciful plane of existence rather than attend to things of immediate and real importance.

     

    That is one camp.

     

    The other comprises those who believe that there is need for a fateful decision, made now or at least before the end of the period after which it would have become too late for it.

     

    The utterances of many in this camp cause them to appear not to see or acknowledge the existence of cycles in the Universe or Creation, causing some in the camp of scoffers and those who do see cycles to immediately recoil from them and not consider their assertions more seriously than they might have other wise.

     

    They are often seen as rigid and narrow-minded, and in opposition to science and traditional or conventional knowledge.

     

    They are seen as ones who have been blinded to the existence of logic and reason due to their obstinate and blind, often religious, faith.

     

    For this reason, they are not taken seriously, and if hey were to make any valid points in their arguments, such are not even allowed to rise to a level where they can be considered and objectively examined.

     

    The adamantine nature of their efforts in the face of scoffers and superficial responses from others causes them to appear more and more like fanatics, and also closes them in further within their homogeneous world.

     

    These seemingly fanatical efforts on the part of the second group also cause the vanity of the first group, the scoffers, to grow, because they feel pandered to and chased after, as though they were people of some importance to the attainment of some ultimate goal.

     

    But this only makes them reject and run away from what is being called out to them by those who appear to them to be dupes of religion.

     

    They have even less respect for them as a result and consider them to be delusional and out of touch with reality, backward and unscientific.

     

    This further separates the groups. In their homogeneous world, those who wish to spread the word about the need to prepare for a final Judgment, to make a Final Decision, develop further the sense of  “us against them”, and refuse to listen to anything else but the interpretations that they have given to the warnings and admonitions in the Scriptures or other writings, as well as to the events that they are able to witness or learn of in everyday happenings around the world.

     

    Narrow-mindedness therefore grows in both camps.

     

    Those in one camp, the ones who do not think that there is any higher governing order that they are supposed to heed, and which restricts them to particular ways of being and acting if they are to succeed as members of their species in Creation, do not read more deeply into the natural happenings around them and therefore do not get a wider perspective or interpretation that could help them understand that there is a definite goal towards which their species is to strive. 

     

    And that there is a point beyond which they would no longer be able to develop themselves in order to become useful fruits, able to participate consciously in the development and expansion of Creation.

     

    A point beyond which they would have to accept the fruit of the seed that they sowed with the decision not to investigate more deeply the purpose of their being on earth.

     

    The fruit of being regarded as useless fruit and corralled into paths and regions where they have to go through the disintegration of the personalities or egos that they have developed or formed in the course of millennia and several earth lives.

     

    They do not therefore seek wider interpretations of the happenings around them and thus do not find them either.

     

    They remain bound to looking at everything and every happening through the same lens as they had always previously done.

     

    Thus sealing their fate through reacting in ways that continue to form for them more closed and narrow worlds, just as they desired through their inner attitudes.

     

    Those in the other camp, the ones who feel that there are signs in the happenings of the present day that speak urgently of the foretold End of Time or Day of Final Judgment, feel the need to hold on even more tightly to their interpretations of the admonitions and the happenings, because they feel that they are at the battlefront, at which they have to steadfastly hold their ground lest they fall prey to the pull of the Darkness at the Final Hour. 

     

    They do not allow themselves the opportunities of personal growth in their understandings of the workings of the Laws of Creation, the Laws of Nature that logically bring about the happenings that they seek to interpret.

     

    They do not discover the streams of currents that carry with them recognitions that lead to spiritual growth and expansion, which come along personal paths of experiencing the workings of the Laws of Creation.

     

    The expansion and growth of the spirit of man alone allows him to see more broadly and to rightly interpret the happenings around him.

     

    The right “seeing” and interpretation lead to the right reactions, and thus to the emergence from man or the transmission through him of currents that build upwards. Limited perceptions cause men to interpret and react wrongly to the happenings around them because they do not see the whole happening and cannot therefore accurately read the working-out of the logic inherent in the Laws of Creation.

     

    Wherever logic is missing, there also is lacking balance and the right foundation for the experiencing of joy and happiness for man.

     

    There also lies the germ of collapse sown with the wrong attitude, thinking, speaking and acting, and the accompanying pain and misery.

     

    This will come even if the one concerned has the best of intentions, because he would always have to reap the consequences of what he actually does express in his inner attitude, thinking, speaking and acting.

     

    And ignorance of the nature of the working of the Laws of Creation/the Universe, which is the same as non-observance of them, must yield corresponding fruit for the one concerned.

     

    Narrow-mindedness always leads to and manifests itself in the form of limited perception.

     

    This also takes the form of seeing only what is perceptible by the human intellect and the physical senses of man.

     

    In other words, man keeps himself from seeing the true origin and breadth of happenings and limits himself to what he can sense and examine with his physical tools and implements.

     

    He makes himself incapable of perceiving the happenings beyond what is earthly and of the earth. He limits himself to a definite space and time.

     

    This growth limitation cannot allow him to see logic and lawfulness. He would always only see in part in this way and cannot experience the joy-instilling effect of lawfulness, justice and balance.

     

    He cannot come to the point of a full understanding of what lies within his capacity to understand, and the not-knowing, which always comes with a particular kind of pressure, keeps him fearful, anxious, narrow-minded (with thoughts of narrow self-interest), envious and vulnerable to many other similar faults, weaknesses or base attributes.

     

    He would then not succeed in preparing himself adequately for the Final Judgment, which actually does go on in the moments of his earth life today.

     

     

    The Final Decision is made one moment at a time because each moment today represents a much longer period of experiencing in the past for the person concerned.

     

    Experiences that were acquired in the course of thousands of years can now be lived through again in a few months, as they come back to the persons concerned as unbalanced and unconcluded threads of experiencing, whose cycles come to a complete close only when the one concerned as learned through personal experiencing what that particular thread is to teach him.

     

    He needs the lesson in order to complete his development, the development of the personality that he must become if he is to be active and useful in Creation.

     

    Each moment holds the question “Man, how do you stand? Do you stand for the Light and life or for the Darkness and destruction?” for the every man.

     

    His choice is made with the way he addresses that which comes at him in the moment.

     

    Whether this is in the way he is attuned within himself, or in his thoughts, his words or his actions.

     

    With each moment today he moves more surely in a particular direction, making a reversal and change to another path that much more difficult, because a purifying power surge has now penetrated and taken over the earth and its surroundings, causing all processes of development to speed up tremendously, including the working that brings man the results or fruits of his decision-making, his desiring, whether he is conscious of these or not.

     

    This speeding up of the processes at work in the Universe, which is accompanied by a more intense binding between homogeneous species, now makes each moment more vital for mankind than any other has been in the past, because a lot now lies in the moment. It is literally now a question of “either or” for each person each moment.

     

    He would continue to find reason to stay in the dark and in the state of not-knowing, or he can continue to see and gain recognitions of the ways that the Laws of Nature work, so that he can see more of the Will of his Maker and attune himself more to it, for the development and maturation of the seed that is his spirit, before the end of the period allotted for this development.

     

    He can continue to assume that he knows all that he needs to know in this time and for this task, and each moment would give him even more reason to maintain himself on that delusory path, or he can decide that it might be wise to be humble and ask in all humility for guidance in the matter, so that the moments that continue to unfold for him would be ones that would accord with this willingness to receive, with the corresponding consequence of recognitions of what he needs for his expansion, growth and perfection.

     

    There would not be a date or a year when it would be announced that the Final Decision time has come. It has been time to make this final decision for a long time now.

     

    The consequences of the numerous decisions that make up this final decision for each person has now brought us all to the present point in our states of being. They are also responsible for the differing attitudes towards this question among mankind, and would be the factor that would separate those who would decide aright from those who would not, the wheat from the chaff.

     

    It is up to the individual to decide which it is to be for him.

    The work: "What is Energy? A Call to the Spiritual Core of Man" deals in more detail with the issues addressed with here.
