What is extraterrestrial life really like?

If you believe in extraterrestrial life, you have probably gazed up at the stars and wondered: what is it really like? We hear stories about this race or that race that is supposedly visiting Earth – but what is true, and what is simply someone’s vivid imagination?

However vivid someone’s imagination may be, it cannot compare to the unlimited imagination of the Creative Source that brought it all into being in the beginning. What are we really, after all, but figments of the Creator’s imagination, floating in its infinite sea of mind – one day to return to the macro-cosmic bliss of fully-conscious oneness … ?!

My King Yoga Experience – Your King Yoga Experience

My King Yoga Experience – Your King Yoga Experience

A quest begins …

When I was growing up I was very interested in spirituality, religion and the meaning of life.

I quickly became indifferent to the puzzled looks and concerned mutterings of people around me, including classmates of course, and sometimes even teachers, who couldn’t understand why I cared. In fact, in some cases they even seemed to feel threatened by my show of interest in anything at all beyond the mundane – spiritual or not. It was as if they perceived the very act of questioning as a passive aggressive challenge to their beloved status quo. As if I were unknowingly attacking the materialistic axis around which ‘normal people’s’ interests revolve …

Faith and The Power of Affirmation

Faith and the power of affirmation

Some people find it difficult to have faith in themselves, in external things, or even in a higher power. These people may pride themselves on being realists. While realism is a good thing, this word may be used to hide a fear of reaching beyond what can be seen and touched. Some so-called realists experience more obstacles and anxieties than those who have boundless faith and optimism, because they have a limited view of reality that can only offer further limitation.

What is faith?

When people say they have no faith in God, or a higher power, it is because they cling to material things and these form their reality. By its very nature, confusion and limitation must result. It seems logical that when one looks upwards at the planets and the stars; outwards at the beauty of Nature and inwards at the rich resources of our soul, that there is a creator and higher power behind it all, very much greater than we are. Faith is not an empty thing; it is born from humility, awe and wonder at the perfection of creation; it is a stage after belief and an essential stage before wisdom and enlightenment.

Mediumship – Séance or Science?

Mediumship – Séance or Science?Most mediums are pretty vague about what exactly they do. They use a type of psychic condition, be it light or deep, and receive through some method, a message. This comes from an intelligence who is not physically incarnate and who might be good, bad or, very often, indifferent.

Sometimes the communication will be delivered through the voice of the medium which requires them to enter trance. In nearly all cases, this will be what Dr George King describes as a negative trance. In this state, the channel negates their consciousness and allows themselves to be taken over by the communicating entity. Dr King stated that such a trance condition is extremely dangerous because the medium has little or no control over the state they are entering, and therefore could at some stage be easily possessed by a malevolent force. I strongly recommend Dr King’s brilliant lecture, “Trance – Its Various Types“.

What to pray for?

What to pray for?

The answer to this question might seem obvious to some people – “For whatever I want!” They would be wrong. As my wife, Alyson, puts it: “You can get what you want, but do you want what you get?” We should not pray for whatever we want because whatever we want is not always good for us.

Spiritual growth, and the happiness that comes with it, is not the result of satisfying the basic desires we have at present, but of training ourselves to focus on those desires that are spiritual in nature. With this approach, our more basic desires will gradually be transmuted into something higher – a purer expression of love. Easier said than done!

Unmodified Peace

Unmodified Peace

 

The word peace is used around the world thousands of times every day, with many different meanings. Ultimately it means an end to war upon this planet and harmony among all the peoples of the world. But as Mars Sector 6 questioned in his wonderful transmission ‘Heaven on Earth’ through our Master on December 9th, 1956: “How can you have peace in the countries of Terra (Earth), unless that peace be born in the hearts of all men?” He stated that: “True peace is a child of wisdom. What is wisdom? What else, dear friends, but love in action.

The Twelve Blessings makes many references to the word peace, for example in the famous saying which appears after the Third Blessing: “ …  first cometh the Angel, Peace – to make way for the Goddess – LOVE.”  This forms a perfect balance for the earlier quote by Mars Sector 6 illustrating the essential paradox in all great truths. For the Master Jesus says that peace comes before love, while Mars Sector 6 says that it comes after as its child. In the symmetry of wisdom, both must be true.

Could I do better if I had been born someone else?

Could I do better if I had been born someone else?
 

“I must point out that it is easy to make excuses and say, ‘If I had been born so-and-so, I could have done better’, but this is not so, it is the foolish talk of a child. Each and every one of you can, in the quiet of your own room – which is your mind – draw inspiration which comes from within. The more people who do this, the more will follow those people, because they will see within you the Light – they may not know that they see it, but they will see it.”

The Master Aetherius, ‘Cosmic Logic’ – November 28th 1954
You Are Responsible!, p.113

This statement is typical of the Cosmic Masters. On the one hand it may seem: uncompromising – unsympathetic – and hard-line. On the other hand it is: empowering – compassionate – and infinitely inspiring.

Such is surely the nature of wisdom … !

The Master Aetherius is telling us that no matter what the circumstances of our birth, we can all draw inspiration from within ourselves. All of us … !

You can only do your best by being yourself

This is not some sickly-sweet ‘New Age’ platitude. It is literally true.

Religion on other planets – insights by an alien intelligence

Religion on other planets - Insights by an alien intelligence

 

Extraterrestrial beings have given countless messages to Earth. One particular contactee who received more communications than probably any other, is Dr. George King (1919-1997) – Master of Yoga and Founder of The Aetherius Society.

Below in bold is an extract of a communication given on January 29th 1955 by the Master Aetherius – a being from a higher material plane of the planet Venus; not this physical plane. This highly advanced spiritual intelligence spoke through Dr. King while in a samadhic trance state.

In italics is commentary by Mark Bennett – an International Director of The Aetherius Society, and a Minister in the Aetherius Churches.

The Master Aetherius speaks:

I will say a word about our religion.

Yes, alien intelligences do have religion!

But the religion referred to here by the Master Aetherius is a world away from much of the religion practiced upon Earth. Theirs is not a religion of dogmas, petty rules and contradictions. Their religion is one of pure, unadulterated spirituality, as he goes on to describe.

All Change

All Change

A couple of years ago I was sitting in a tube-train at Earls Court station in London. I was dozing, as I often do on trains, to be awoken abruptly by a loud announcement over the tannoy. The announcement was two simple words:

“ALL CHANGE!”

As I was waking up, suddenly I felt a strange feeling of awakening of a different kind. “Yes …” I thought, or rather felt, “ALL CHANGE – what a fantastic message!”

I glanced up, still half-asleep, my eyes skimming the faces around me, and up to the advertisements displayed above the seats; my ears half-hearing the chatter and mindless background noise in the carriage. There was a message in virtually everything I could see and hear, and even feel around me, and this message was the exact opposite of what I had heard over the tannoy. The message was:

“STAY THE SAME!”

After I had completely woken up and come to my senses, I changed trains, as I had been instructed to do by the faceless tannoy. But the memory of my strange semi-conscious quasi-illumination stayed with me.

“Yes … “I kept thinking to myself, “Yes … that’s what we need – we need to all change … yet what we are constantly being brainwashed into believing is that we should stay the same …”
