If there is no past (previous) life, why do people say, “I’m looking for my soul mate”?

How is it that a person can be walking along a street and suddenly turn around and find a friend or acquaintance at a distance looking at them but saying nothing?

In what way as it has been reported in historical records that in dueling, the victor has felt the “ghost” of the victim run up the arm of his rapier or haunt him for months until reparation to the dead man’s family is made for killing him?

In Shakespeare’s Romeo and Juliette, Romeo declares to his cronies just after Tybalt has pierced Mecurio with a sword, “Mercurio is but a few feet above our heads,” and proceeds to use this a championing call for immediate revenge.

How can one person say to another: “Be me for a minute, and see how it feels.” Bodies don’t be other bodies.

Do we discount “gravity” because we don’t see it?

Do we stop breathing air because we don’t see it? And,

Do we ignore electricity because we can only see the effect it creates exposed air to action outside its conduit?

Dishes and Laundry

It seems impossible now that I look at it, that during formative years, every other day of the week I and my brother Mike would slave over washing and drying the dinner dishes and tableware. For five usually six persons.  Sister and my oldest brother would fill in between days.

Mike and I would inevitably have a contest to see who would finish first.  That got to be quite heated many times.  Not to mention how hot it got in the tiny kitchen during the summer.

I have found amongst the monotony of life several areas of interest which have provided me respite of monotonous existence.

One of them is writing. Another is the game of tennis. Another still is the study of the behavior of the human spirit.

With skyrocketing paroxysms of ecstasy, I write about what is most visible to myself: human beings engaged in being lost in wonderland, i.e. wonderland this life. Lost with no or little understanding of who they really are or who they really have been.

When I was two, I looked around my environment, New York City and knew that I had been here before.

That thought re-occurred to me again many times before I put it on the shelf. About thirty years later in a counseling session devoted to confessions of misdeeds I came upon the exact place where I had “been before” in that city. But long before that occurred I knew who I was and partially who I had been in recent times.

When I was nine I picked up a book containing the classic stories of Edgar Allan Poe, read them voraciously and felt a kinship almost immediately. I was not E.A. Poe. But I lived during the days he lived and many other days of many other famous and infamous persons. It has always amazed me occasionally, and amused me always, that people don’t get two things: one, that to enjoy a great or even semi-great piece of music, they must to some degree have performed or be capable of performing in a similar fashion. Two, that people and times of the past are not interesting only because “their ancestors” lived then, but that they lived then, and probably in many cases as their ancestors!

The mechanism of forgetting our past existences appears to be on several accounts judicious and beneficial to humans. For starters, it takes a heavy load off one to not have all that extra material hanging around in the present life to get in the way, or so it would seem. Secondly it is a convenient way to gloss over a lot of pain, pain from the loss of many times a cherished object, viz. a warm body and the failure to keep it alive, more often. Thirdly, our memories seem to also be shut off through an installed “forgetter mechanism” which in itself isn’t very robust, but does accentuate and in a way compliment our own agreeable solution to numbers one and two.

I mentioned just earlier ancestors who may have been current lifetime individuals, not necessarily having the same mother / father, sister / brother, husband / wife relationship but related none the less.

Blue bloods have that trait in common. Cleverly disguised as a genetic phenomenon, when in fact it is a case of transmigration, but not in all cases.

Even more phenomenal is the occurrence of people knowing the meaning of words without ever looking them up in a dictionary. You know, words like: OBSERVE, CALCULATE, SLIME, SURVEY, MOMENT.

Written orignally as Monotony To Monotony: March 19, 2013
PS. What is most important to me about the reality of past lives is not Who we might have been, but What skills and knowledge lay buried with those past lives that can be recovered for exploiting them in the future!

No man has seen the face of God. This we have heard many times.
BUT…when we substitute the word “a” for “the” we can state more truthfuly:

Man has seen a face of God.

In fact, Man has seen and does see billions of faces of God.

We are all children of God. Sounds very familiar. Also we know that children eventually grow up. Therefore mature children of God will ultimately be ?

As you consider so shall yee be.

STEVE – The Guy Downstairs

There’s this fellow downstairs, Steve, who used to be a contractor doing roofing and other construction. One day he “fell off” a roof and since has been confined to a wheelchair existence. Pretty sad really. But this fellow keeps at it, has a small business buying and selling items, he gets cheaply, locally or by wholesale, on eBay. He paints too. Not bad stuff either, doesn’t really see himself selling a lot of his work. Too bad IMHO.

Scientology Has The Answers Part III

(Continued from Part II)

One person I audited who had a considerable upset with a family member that was not resolving was asked simple non-invasive questions, while I consulted the meter (E-Meter) occasionally. The questions ran as follows: What conclusions have you made about the upset? Have you made any decisions about the person? Tell me your feelings about the person etc. After a few minutes the person sitting opposite me began to smile, I noted that the E-meter was not registering any reactions and I indicated to her that we could go on to the next part of her repair program. The simple fact of listening and not doing any of 1 to 29 of the AUDITOR’S CODE made it possible for this person to see the truth of the matter in your own time and space and that finished it to her satisfaction.

The Auditor can also compute while listening. This is necessary because while the person in their session is looking inward the auditor being exterior to the enturbulence* and falsely acquired data that is causing the difficulty can correctly identify and direct their attention fully to the details of the matter being addressed. Fully examining the details brings about freedom. Know the truth, and the truth sets a person free. Free to BE, free to Do, free to HAVE.

Probably the only reason confessions and such delivered by churches in the past did not fully resolve the problems and repeated undesirable behavior of a person, is that the priest or minister lacked an instrument capable of detecting the minutest thought. Scientology auditors have such a device and only registered Scientologist ministers by law can have or use one.

Once the parishioner and auditor have gone over ALL THE FACTS of what needs to be addressed and the metering device agrees, the matter is forever a thing of the past.

Another form of auditing called OBJECTIVES may be the solution to a host of social problems, and certainly is a milestone when completed on the route to greater freedom. It consists of processes to familiarize a person completely with the environment. It is noticeable, as was discovered by L. Ron Hubbard that people tend to shy away from spaces and objects and that includes people. OBJECTIVE auditing also permits a person under the guidance of a trained Scientologist (Auditor) to experience touching and letting go of objects and spaces until the person is totally comfortable with being given commands–directions really, and is finally comfortable in duplicating actions physically without protest. These drills usually run out a type of hypnotic trance that the environment has produced over the years on them. One such person, had been an alcoholic for the majority of his life and nothing, not even other auditing had really helped this individual. It took 35 hours of objective auditing of several types but at the end he was free from his habitual and slavish dependency on alcohol. BTW, OBJECTIVES are a MAJOR step in rehabilitating drug addicts and is used in the NARCONON program.

A third person undergoing auditing had a terrible loss of a sexual nature. The person that he had been seeing for a long time broke it off. It took though just two hours of auditing to completely heal the trauma associated with the breakup. The person was able to work more efficiently at his workplace and he no doubt could find another individual with which to create a marriage, which was the intention before the breakup.

*Enturbulence: the emotional upset and mental turbulence stemming from an uspset.

Scientology Has The Answers Part II

When someone asks (although less and less these days) What is Scientology, I can answer in many ways since Scientology is wisdom applied to living, and that covers a lot of activities and interests.

Here are a few of the answers easy to understand:

It’s a controversial new religion and religious philosophy based on the most ancient wisdom, used by millions to better their lives and be happier, sometimes misused by a few with bad intentions to bring others to ruin and succumb.

It’s the Glorious story of Man the Spirit vs Man from Mud theory, Man conquers Mud.

The rediscovery of the human soul, YOU, the isolation of its exact nature, and its ultimate liberation.

It’s what the common modern man uses to make his plans become actuality and achieve a higher state of being.

Scientology means more happiness, higher productivity, greater life, greater length of life and greater pleasure during life.

Here is the Code of Behavior for counselors in Scientology when aiding others to release trauma from their lives and overcome obstacles to a happier existence. They are called AUDITORS. The definition in Scientology for AUDITOR is a trained Scientologist who listens. Tomorrow I’ll go into depth as to how that helps people achieve the above. I’ll give examples from my experience as a Scientology Auditor.

I hereby promise as an auditor to follow the Auditor’s Code.

1. I promise not to evaluate for the preclear or tell him what he should think about his case in session.

2. I promise not to invalidate the preclear’s case or gains in or out of session.

3. I promise to administer only Standard Tech to a preclear in the standard way.

4. I promise to keep all auditing appointments once made.

5. I promise not to process a preclear who has not had sufficient rest and who is physically tired.

6. I promise not to process a preclear who is improperly fed or hungry.

7. I promise not to permit a frequent change of auditors.

8. I promise not to sympathize with a preclear but to be effective.

9. I promise not to let the preclear end session on his own determinism but to finish off those cycles I have begun.

10. I promise never to walk off from a preclear in session.

11. I promise never to get angry with a preclear in session.

12. I promise to run every major case action to a floating needle.

13. I promise never to run any one action beyond its floating needle.

14. I promise to grant beingness to the preclear in session.

15. I promise not to mix the processes of Scientology with other practices except when the preclear is physically ill and only medical means will serve.

16. I promise to maintain communication with the preclear and not to cut his communication or permit him to overrun in session.

17. I promise not to enter comments, expressions or enturbulence into a session that distract a preclear from his case.

18. I promise to continue to give the preclear the process or auditing command when needed in the session.

19. I promise not to let a preclear run a wrongly understood command.

20. I promise not to explain, justify or make excuses in session for any auditor mistakes whether real or imagined.

21. I promise to estimate the current case state of a preclear only by Standard Case Supervision data and not to diverge because of some imagined difference in the case.

22. I promise never to use the secrets of a preclear divulged in session for punishment or personal gain.

23. I promise to never falsify worksheets of sessions.

24. I promise to see that any donation received for processing is refunded following the policies of the Claims Verification Board, if the preclear is dissatisfied and demands it within three months after the processing, the only condition being that he may not again be processed or trained.

25. I promise not to advocate Dianetics or Scientology only to cure illness or only to treat the insane, knowing well they were intended for spiritual gain.

26. I promise to cooperate fully with the authorized organizations of Dianetics and Scientology in safeguarding the ethical use and practice of those subjects.

27. I promise to refuse to permit any being to be physically injured, violently damaged, operated on or killed in the name of “mental treatment.”

28. I promise not to permit sexual liberties or violations of patients.

29. I promise to refuse to admit to the ranks of practitioners any being who is insane.

When you know you KNOW, and when you’re right you’re RIGHT

Awhile ago, as I was leaving I handed a book on ‘Character Education’ to a cashier at an East Indian grocery, asking him if the owner had given him a copy that I provided staff, in Hindi his native language previously in the past month . The owner purchased a dozen so he could give them out to his employees in their native language. The cashier said no, so I gave an English copy to him, one that I had with me. Upon leaving the store I noticed the KINDLE I was carrying was no longer with me and I raced back to get it.
