This next lesson is probably the basis of learning how to live consciously. Our thoughts become words, our words become actions and our actions build our character. We need to be conscious every moment of the thoughts we send out because eventually they manifest as form and we need to constantly send out thoughts of love, goodwill and compassion.
This training also helps us to learn detachment as you can see from the following …
WATCH YOUR WORDS - 15.5.96
The Teacher said that it is a time now when we need to listen to what we say, for what is being expressed through our mouthpiece, is perhaps originating from our emotions, or our lower mind, or maybe even from our higher mind. By now using our intelligent force and our power of will with the love energies, we should now be enabled to begin controlling the words that come out of our mouth.
We need to see our mouth as an instrument of healing and mark it for its quality. How do we register the marking? Through the day, we need to take account of how we speak, what are the words that we utter. Then at the end of the day, we mark ourselves from 1 to 10. That is, did we utter only that which will help in producing the Golden Thread? For that we will receive a 10.
As we go down the grades to perhaps something that has been hurtful, or that is using our emotions, then we give ourselves a 0 or a 1. We are quite capable of understanding how to mark ourselves.
This helps in a process of detachment and it is, at this time, of great importance to become detached. That is, we are attached through the energies into our physical body, our emotions and our minds and into all our personality bodies. But how is that attachment? Is it one that gives us fear of any kind - the fear produced by the emotions? Therefore, that is not detachment. We will be attached to our physical, emotional and personality body, but at the same time, we will be in control, and this control is of the greatest importance to us in the work that we are doing.
As we progress in this further control, we will learn to detach from all the surrounding energies that might be attaching to ourselves. That is, we will no longer be bothered by any negative force coming into us if we do not wish it so. For here, we are developing the WILL, and the power of the will, in a positive manner to produce the Golden Way. On this Golden Way, we will find nothing that is negative. Therefore, we are learning to harmonize what is within us by watching our words and our feelings and controlling. With this, we are learning not to allow into our range of energy, that which will bring negativity within us. Now this is important now because very soon, when we are doing very major work, there will be great material forces that will try to stop this work. There will be much emotional distraction to give us discouragement in going forward.
The Teacher added that there is a great group on that side of the veil who work with us, who are there with us, and who are trying to help us all the time to lift above the emotions and to detach. It was mentioned that they watch us most carefully, and they see that part of our development can be the reliance of guides and Masters and such-like. We need to know that we have been upon the Earth not once, not twice, but over and over again. We have done great deeds, and at times the opposite. Our ‘guides’ are all an essential part of us. That is, we are only a fraction of the greater part of our beingness.
This greater part has fragmented itself into its many fractions, each producing further power, further experience upon the Earth or whatever planet it happens to be upon.
We are actually receiving from the greater part of our beingness. Sometimes it may be on another planet, sometimes something higher. It all depends where we are placing yourselves and which fraction of us, enables us to call upon for assistance. These fractions of us are slowly coming together as we create ourselves, which then gives us the ability to work with greater power, with a greater deliverance to good. There are those who are working into the materialistic realms. They are impinging their creation into the astral and are not actually connecting to their own energies. They are connecting to astral plane images. These astral plane images are then giving forth and helping these in whatever event they wish to be in.
As we develop along the spiritual path, we do not stand along the astral plane. We lift out of it. As we go higher in our abilities to create and work with the higher energies, so we receive the ability to get the great synthesis of the fractions that are our beingness. Then slowly the higher parts of us become a beautiful ONENESS. It is all a weaving of the threads, the Golden Threads within us.
It is all part of the great Galactic Plan. We are all part of this plan. All life is part of this plan. Even those who use their will power on the material planes are receiving an experience that perhaps in other lives, will lift themselves to
a higher part of themselves. Work then without judgment, without opinion, without criticism. Watch the words that come out of your mouths. Speak the golden truth or speak not at all.
