Open House Series - No. 12
12 February 1987
Q. The question is: ‘Who, or what, is the anti-Christ and how, if at all, is this related to the beast and the number three times six?’
I would like to explain that, wherever there is a messenger of God, a positive messenger, an avatar of some kind, there is also an avatar working for the negative forces – anti-Christ, meaning against Christ, against the Light of Christ, destructive in his work or her work. As the messenger of God, or the avatar, is always a positive and renovating, vitalising, healing agent of God, the other one is a destructive, killing, decaying agent. And they always come at the same time.
Now, what I said before is an organisation can be an avatar. And there are also spiritual organisations on this Earth which are anti-Christ, even if the Lord D.K. doesn’t like the use of the word anti-Christ. But it is easily understood by people - it’s 'anti' the light. I will not name these organisations because they have a right to be here, and people will never believe it anyway.
The thing is that on this Earth – as I will explain more of in the workshop 'The Great White Brotherhood and The Dark Brotherhood' on the 21st of February - we have two hierarchies, the negative and the positive hierarchy, and they have all their duties to perform. The negative hierarchy, the Dark Brotherhood, is allowed to stay here until man becomes positive, then they will have to leave. For as long as man is not a positive, perfected human being, there will be a negative hierarchy on this Earth, testing man in his love, strength, courage and so forth.
The anti-Christ people in spiritual organisations, they talk about the Hierarchy (some of them), or about the light, about the Christ, as do the other organisations but their energy is wrong. You see, you can only recognise an anti-Christ if you learn to be sensitive to energy. That’s what we teach our people here: to open their hearts and become sensitive to what is right and wrong. And when you have learned the difference between positive and negative energy, positive and negative vibration, you will come to feel when a human being is not honest, when there is something false about that human being – not from looks, but in the speech. The speech sounds right, but there is something – there is an element of negativity, of danger or evil in it.
I would like to say, as I always say for you to understand, I respect the Dark Brotherhood on this Earth – the Hierarchy does respect [the] other, but They don’t cooperate with them. I would never cooperate willingly or consciously in this incarnation. I have learned too much with the Dark Brotherhood. But the Dark Brotherhood have their agents on Earth, minor and major agents, as has the Great White Brotherhood, and they are people who are working for the destructive element on this Earth.
What we term an 'anti-Christ', is a person with power – a politician, a soldier – or in any way in a powerful position where he can harm society or he can harm the world. We don’t call a little negative human being an anti-Christ. He is his worst enemy, we all know that, but he is not an anti-Christ. An anti-Christ is a human being who has been given the same power as an avatar working for the White Brotherhood, but he is working negatively; the other one positively.
Always when there are Christed, anointed messengers on Earth, there are the opposite as well. That is the balance that this Earth has always had. And for as long as this Earth is not a peaceful planet, we shall have a dark brotherhood here.
The 'beast' means that it is evil, beastly energy, working through the lower self. The anti-Christ always talks to people’s beast self, the animal self of man; the gratifying, lustful man. And the anti-Christ always talks to the personality: ‘If you work for me, I’ll give you money, power, houses, swimming pools. Ask anything and it is yours.’
The Christ says, 'I can only promise you your reward in heaven. I can only promise you a difficult life, but a beautiful and pure life. I can only promise you that you will live, perhaps, in poverty but be rich in heaven.' This is the difference.
And if any human being, if you can discern it, talks to your lower self, the personality who wants something, who desires something all the time for itself – I want this money or this whatever, and who cares about the others – it is the negative self that rules. And the negative powers talk to that negative self: ‘If you do this, you will gain this.' It is always something to do with success in life.
And when you go to workshops for money, to get money – they’re called... What is it they’re called these workshops? – 'Money and You'. Why do you want the money and why haven’t you got enough? First, you have to look at your karma and, when you discover why you have no money, you deal with that karma, because no affirmations will get you money if it’s your karma not to have it.
If you have abused the energy of money, you cannot go to one workshop and learn to get it. If you have abused the energy of sex, you will have several lifetimes without sex. If you have abused an energy, you will pay by not having it.
Q. There is another question here: ‘What do I mean by what I said last week, "We must not abuse the energies given to us"?’
What I mean by it is that, in every lifetime we live, we have the choice of using our energies we’re given by God wisely or unwisely. And everything you do wrong to gratify your little self, everything of that nature, is abuse. And we do a lot of abuse.
I have squandered money, more millions of dollars in past incarnations than you ever dream about in this life in stupid warfare, building palaces because I wanted to have a relaxation place in the country. I was there for a week a year. I have done everything you dream about on this Earth, and it never pays, because you live lives after that where you are not getting anything out of life except, perhaps, love. If you can manage to love others, you get love in return.
Many people say, ‘If I don’t get money, I will not be happy. If I don’t have two cars, I will be most unhappy. If I haven’t got three swimming pools, one inside my house and two in the garden, I will commit suicide.’ It is all the little self talking. It is the anti-Christ within every man talking; always demanding, always demanding something. But is it God who wants you to have it or is it your little self?
I tell everyone who is unhappy and has no money, no good sex relationship, no husband, no nothing, ‘Why haven’t you got it? Do you think you can go to [a] workshop and learn to have it?' No. The first thing you have to do is you have to find out the reason for not having what you want, and then you find out how much you are able to get this life, and then you start working at it.
This is a realistic way of working. This is past the level of illusion saying, ‘Grab it all, grab, grab, grab’ but you never think about what happens after you grab. This is the anti-Christ talking to your little self: ‘Take it all’ and you do, and for a certain period you have all, then you lose it, and also your life on top of it.
On Earth, we have to learn to live by the Divine Will of God. It takes us many thousands of lives to get there. There will always be a voice saying ‘I know you want to learn meditation but why don’t you wait a week? You have no time anyway.’ Or, ‘I know you want to give to your sister. She needs money, she is in a desperate situation – but would you like this coat first?’
This is how the anti-Christ in every man talks. And that is how anti-Christs, the greater ones, also talk. But people don’t see it as anti-Christ because the voice promises them everything they want, and they take it because the little self wants it. One day, the little self no longer rules the personality. The higher self is starting to talk, to rule the lower self, and you no longer want just for the sake of wanting. And then you get it.
There is an interesting Divine Law, that when you no longer need or want, you get it all. And that is why there is a Law that says ‘God gives and protects His children’. But if you can learn to live by His Law, you will get everything you need in life – what God considers you to need, not what your lower self considers you to need.
And I have learned that Law of Karma. I have learned, through abuse of energies in life after life and paying for it, I have learned not to want too much. I don’t say I have stopped wanting, but I have learned not to want too much. It takes time to go from the palaces, the Rolls-Royces, the titles, the crowns of Europe to nothing. It takes something, I can assure you of that. And it takes courage and strength not to become bitter, resentful because who are we always angry with? – God. ‘You have done this to me’, and so and so. And, for as long as we say such sentences, we haven’t learned a thing.
In this incarnation, I found out that whatever had happened to me of negative, I had done it to myself: wrong actions, abuse of energy in the past. I could sit there and cry for the rest of this lifetime – sometimes I wanted to, and forget all about this incarnation – or take up the burden of neutralising that karma, becoming stronger and stronger doing it, and becoming what I am today.
I could also, for ten years, have said to the Masters, ‘It sounds very good but don’t think I will do it. Find someone else. I want to sit here in this summer cottage and have a cosy time. Who cares if the Earth is going down. I will be saved.’
That’s what they all think: ‘I will be saved. The others will drown but I will remain.’ This is usually the misbelief of humanity. ‘The others will die but I will not.’ That’s what they thought when Atlantis went down. The negative priesthood had told them nothing would happen and down they went, with me on top of everything else. I shall never forget that I thought I would be saved, to the very last second.
This is what the negative brotherhood tells you. But the positive brotherhood says, ‘You’ve got to save yourself.' By living according to the Divine Will of God, you save yourself. And that is what I teach people, and that is the necessity to get people to understand.
So, abuse of energy means that, if you have ten dollars in your hand, how are you using that ten dollars? If you have the choice of ten times sex a week or one, I would choose one if I were you. It’s better for the balance. If you have the choice of giving to a worthy cause, fifty dollars, or buying sweets with it, I would give it to a worthy cause.
It is your choice which tells your life about abuse and right use of energy. And for as long as you don’t learn, you will suffer. And I tell you, I understand you so well because there’s nothing more wonderful than power and money when you are centred on that only. But one day, you become centred in the wealth of the Universe. The Love of the Master is hundred times more worth than a whole treasure box of golden coins.
And when you finally understand that you may not be rich on this Earth, you may not get what your little self wants, but you will get something greater – the love within you expands. You become loving. And Master talks to you. You see the inner levels of paradise that you are going to create on Earth. You see what your life will do to others. You will then start to use energies wisely. But you may fall back in your… [tape is being turned over] ... incarnation. Look at it, and you may be surprised.
Q. There is another question here. I can take this one first: ‘Do the gods and goddesses worshipped by the Hindu religion have anything to do with the Hierarchy?’
The gods and goddesses, first of all – many of them – are qualities, not humans, not living beings, not Cosmic Beings. We have, on this Earth, had Masters and initiates walking this planet since time began, namely the Hierarchy when They came to Earth eighteen million years ago.
The gods and goddesses of [the] Hindu religion – and all religions like the Egyptian ones, the Italian, the Greek religions – what they symbolise are qualities of God. And sometimes they are real Masters, and sometimes they’re not. Sometimes they’re only energy – namely, a quality of God.
See, the Jewish philosophy says there is only one God, and that is true, but the one God encompasses hundreds of God qualities. And these qualities some people have put name and face to, like statues –made statues of, worshipped – and sometimes not. It doesn’t matter because there is only one God, the Solar Logos, in this Universe and the Solar Logos has many faces and many names. And if you believe that there is a God, it’s alright. It’s better [that] you believe in a hundred gods than nothing – and you will then find God within yourself.
If you don’t believe in God, you don’t believe in yourself either because you are that God spark in the human body. And people who tell me they don’t believe in God, I have much compassion with. It is the most dreadful lives of all not to believe in God, because you don’t believe in yourself. You do not exist anymore. You cease to exist as a human being, a God being.
Therefore, some of the gods and goddesses have belonged, and do belong, to the Hierarchy, and some are only names, energy focal points. I believe it’s best to believe in something positive than not to believe at all, and any religion you belong to, it is positive because then you believe in God.
Q. There is another question here: ‘Please define the love quality, not the sentimental.’
There is love on all levels on this Earth. We have love, even if it’s on a very low level. Physical love is still love – an aspect of love. The highest love on this Earth is the love of soul and the love of spirit. It is God’s love for His children. It is fiery, it is burning, it is magnificent. But it is so strong that people cannot cope with this love. That is why Solar Logos sends to Earth His older children, the Masters. They can transform that fiery burning love into a love that mankind can understand. And the Masters transform this love down to lower levels.
You have love. Maybe not all the highest love within the heart, but you all have love within you. We have astral love which is very sentimental, but it can be very purified. In saints, it’s very beautiful love. It can be a mental love, very purified in purified mental bodies; very ugly perhaps, in people who are impurified.
We have love on all levels and love is good, but the day when we can love with our heart, the heart chakra, we are getting into divine love, impersonal love.
Many people – I have noticed something, it’s a very interesting thing. I have, at the Earth Healing Services, for nine years channelled the Lord Christ, and very few people have cried. I cry when I channel, but others do not. So I said – for a long time, I put myself this question, ‘Why do I feel it? Why do I feel Christ, but they don’t feel a thing? They are not aware that Christ is here.' He is actually sometimes standing in the middle of the floor, and nobody notices it. Then I saw that I was channelling the Cosmic Christ on such a high level that you have got to feel the soul and mental body. But when you are centred in your astral body, you cannot feel the Cosmic Christ. You can only feel the physical Christ.
The Lord Jesus in a more, shall we say, human form, you can feel. And I always said to myself, ‘Why are they crying when the swamis 'so and so' are talking, but they are not crying when I am talking, and I am also channelling this wonderful Christ?’ Because I understood that, when the swamis were channelling, they managed to channel through the astral body. And when they are managing to channel it down there, people can feel it. But I was channelling from my mental body, and here, and it’s too high a vibration.
I am learning to channel the Lord Maitreya down to the lower levels – that is what takes me so long to learn – so that people can feel this love and be redeemed by it, because to cry and to laugh is good, it is redemptive. It is not enough that your higher being feels that it is redeemed. What about your lower beings? And that is what I have been waiting for all those years, to be able to channel the Christ through my astral body, so that people could be redeemed also on that level, where there is most need of redeeming. And it is coming now, only recently.
So, there are many - there are many levels of love. There is sullied love, where one wants something from others. ‘I will love you, if you will do this for me. If you do more, I will love you more.’ This is human love. Or possessive love, not wanting to let go of the ones you think you love. But higher love is to give the personalities their freedom to be what they are, and to love them however stupid they may be.
And I have always, always said to myself, ‘The day I can love people, however much they irritate me, however much their negative self clashes with my personality', then I have come to the end because my ideal, [as is the ideal for many of us], is the Christ – the way He could talk, the way He could love everyone, no matter what they did to Him. And I am not there as yet. No, I will not say that I am. But I’m getting there slowly.
I suddenly – it suddenly struck me the other day that I could love some people that had, well, a little bit irritated me. I could love them. And that is because the Lord Maitreya is filling me with His Love. That is what I can do for you. A spiritual teacher can only do for others what he can do to himself. The moment I can love more, I can also teach you to love more.
And that is the ultimate on this Earth. Knowledge is good, wonderful. Everything is wonderful. But more wonderful is to love, and not look at people’s negative selves. It’s very difficult because it’s easier to be critical, condemning than tolerant and loving – much easier. It’s much easier.
[Question from the audience: ‘In Eastern terminology, would this be a sign that the kundalini has touched the heart chakra?’]
No, it won’t do it. The kundalini touching the heart chakra won’t. It’s not enough. The only way you can feel this love I am talking about is at a third initiatory level, where the soul governs the personality. It’s the third/fourth initiation. The heart chakra being stimulated by the kundalini is not enough. It has to be - it has to be the love of the soul governing the chakras first. There is a long way to go.
I have been a saint on this Earth, like some of you. I loved, purified love from my astral body. I have also tried to love mentally, but lower mentally, not complete, not enough, not enough. And that is what I learned in this life. It’s not easy. It’s the most difficult thing, to love. It’s much easier to do anything else.
[Comments from a Danish person in the audience: ‘I believe I have experienced this at times, and I find if I believe I have made an adversary, that if you, no matter what they did or said, that you send them the pink light at once...’]
Yes, that’s exactly what you do.
[‘... because that lifts oneself at once.']
Oh yes, yes – it helps you to feel more love.
['In my native town we have a saying: “The more clever one gives in.” It took me 30 years to understand that.']
It takes time. You should be happy it didn’t take you 30,000 lives to learn.
It is – it is very difficult to love. And some people talk about love as if it was the easiest thing in the world. You know, the preachers, the priest, the school teachers, everyone – the politicians – everyone talks about love, and it’s not easy to love. And we should use that word with understanding and discrimination.
What I said about Shan the Rising Light before, is that I try to teach only what I can keep myself. That’s why I go so slowly. I cannot teach you anything I haven’t learned myself. I can’t talk about – too much about – divine love and you feeling divine love, when I don’t feel it totally myself.
We have to be honest towards each other on this Earth; that if the teachers, the politicians, the leaders of this Earth looked upon themselves truthfully, and didn’t teach or expect anything other than what they could give, we would have a changed Earth in five minutes.
Well, let us see. We have a last question here, the rest we’ll take next time. There are a lot of questions here on this one. We can take the first one at least.
Q. The question is: ‘What is the guide or Master that each person has, and what is its function?’
The guide is not a Master. The guides that you have are astral beings, sometimes mental, all depending on your spiritual growth and development. A guide can do many things for you. It teaches you right or wrong – that is, if you have a positive guide.
The Master – you only have a Master at a certain development, stage of development, because the masters you call ‘Masters’ on this Earth are not Masters; they are disciples of the Hierarchy. The guide works with you when you are on one level of consciousness, and the Master when you are on another. It is like school. You complete one year of education, and you get another teacher in your next year because you need another teacher to teach you on a higher level, specialising in that teaching.
And it is the same in the spiritual world that, the higher developed you get, the higher the teacher you are bestowed. And therefore, we start with guides of an astral nature, living on the astral levels. A guide is usually a being who may be astral only, never incarnated as a human being, or is a human being who lives on the astral levels for quite some time to become a guide for some thousands of years.
But a guide is not a Master. And that is a major mistake committed by man, spiritual man. They think the guides are Masters, and they will listen to these words as if they were the highest words of truth. And very often they are also led astray by so-called guides, so-called Masters.
I will tell you something that I have said. I have written a little cosmic truth. You will meet the Master when you the least expect it. Be happy that you have positive guides and teachers from the inner levels and not Earth, but you will not meet the Master unless you are ready for it. And that is your soul development. As soon as you are a soul of a certain development and initiation, the Master will come. And He will not approach you until then. I explain, in the Course of Healing and Wisdom, when that is.
But be happy about your guides. Thank them for all good information they give you in healing work, and the way they protect you in your daily lives. Just know that the Masters are very rarely contacting man. He only does through His disciples, or Their disciples. I cannot explain more about it at this time. I will explain more, perhaps, next time.
Q. There was also here a question I would like to answer: ‘How are you able to see other people’s auras without looking through your own, and seeing your colours mixed with theirs?’
This is the training, because you look at other people’s auras through your own. But you see, when you are trained as I am, you can totally separate your own aura from that of one you look at. But others can’t. Not many astral clairvoyants can do it. That is why they see themselves also in the other. They might read some of their own aura in the other person. It is very difficult.
Your aura has to be purified and, when it is totally purified, it will not disturb the reading anymore. You will look at the other aura, at the other person, and see the truth. We see every human being through our own eyes. That means, if you are not a positive, perfected human being, you may see some of your imperfections in other people, and think you are looking at them. It’s yourself you are looking at.
And that is why you must go to a soul clairvoyant. You must go to an initiate, if you can find him or her, because only the initiates of a third initiation are able to look at another person and not see themselves. It is training. It’s hundreds of lives' training.
Q. I will answer the other questions next time about: ‘What is life?’ and ‘Are the colours of the aura related to the colours of rays and flames?’
No, not the colours of the aura. I wouldn’t say ‘no’ totally because there is something called auric colours, and there is also something called the colour of the ray of the personality body. But I will explain all that next time, so you will understand.
What I would like to say today, my dears, is I hope you have been able to take all my enthusiastic chattering. I’m always enthusiastic when I talk about the Hierarchy, the Rising Light, the Earth work because it is, for me, the most beautiful work one can do. And even if you are any other profession, just do some Earth healing work, some healing work, and you will be as happy as me because you can do it, nevertheless. It doesn’t matter what profession, your position – you can always do some work.
Not all of you will be working full-time with the work I do, but still you have time left over to work for the Cause, any good cause. It is fulfilling and giving you a contentment that you can’t find in anything else. I know that, when we are in politics, oh – it is so exciting. But one day it’s not so exciting anyway because you suddenly find out that what you have been fighting for is not so good after all. Good lessons in life.
No, my dears, I will tell you that the initiates in the next life we live in, some of you, will become positive politicians. By that, I mean that you will work for good only, in the name of the Hierarchy, and a new government, the World Government, will become a reality on this Earth. What I mean by good politician, is one without personal ambitions. You can’t have them now. They will never survive. I know there are good politicians but they don’t survive, not today. But in your next life, they will. We shall see a new world order, a new government or new governments, working for the benefit of man only – not to serve any ambition or desire, self-desire.
I know it’s difficult to believe. I hardly believe it myself. But when I look into the auras of man, I give readings, I can exactly see. In another hundred years hence, we shall have it – even less than a hundred years. It sounds nearly like a utopia but it happens because we are changing so much structure on Earth. Evolution is so much speeded up. You can’t imagine what your next life will be like. Nothing like this incarnation at all.
We are at the end of an era, totally. And when you incarnate next time, if you come back to this planet, it will have changed. You will not recognise it. Even the planet, the surface of the planet, will have changed. So, in this incarnation you are living in a difficult but exciting time and next time, hopefully, you will live in a more peaceful time on Earth, a more golden age, starting soon.
Yes, my dears, it is always pleasant for me to answer your questions, and I’m happy to see you here on Thursdays. You can bring all questions you think of in your week. I would also advise you, if you dare (I would do it), if you have any problem, real problem – doesn’t matter if a marital problem or whatever – put me the question here and I can answer you, help you with it.
