The Great Controversy Between A Connection To The Forces Of Light Or The Forces Of Darkness
Many scientists in physics and in other areas of science are finding out that everything is connected. The micro/macro connection is from the smallest atom to the largest star. Great writers throughout history have written about this universal connection, such as Walt Whitman, who said when a leaf drops stars feel it. Since everything is energy, broken circuitry from the source of energy affects everything.
For example, there is a small, battery-operated device that shows the significance of connection. It is a tiny globe of the earth with two points that need contact by human touch in order to give off a musical tone. As long as both points are touched by connected humans, it will chime. Two or one hundred people holding hands will cause music from this device, but if there is any broken place within the human chain of touching hands, the music will stop. I guess you could say that as long as there is a connectedness among humans, the earth sings, but whenever there is a break in human inter-relatedness and unity, the earth cannot sing as fully as it is meant to. Simply put, we humans are conductors of the Creator’s energy, physically as well as by thought.
The Field of Economics/Commerce
In the field of economics, the original system of barter was started thousands of years ago and has come down to the present time as capital or the money system. Today the capitalistic economic systems are set up for individuals to make as much money for themselves as possible. There is a saying that “money makes the world go round.” That is because the equation, on a fallen world like we live on, is called greed. Just like electricity is the prime mover of the physical world, greed is the prime mover of the world of capital.
According to Wikipedia, “Commerce is the whole system of an economy that constitutes an environment for business. The system includes legal, economic, political, social, cultural and technological systems that are in operation in any country.”
When commerce emerged in civilization, throughout history there were two ways to manifest finances or wealth:
1. The way of self-serving greed - the fallen mind that says “It doesn’t matter who you hurt or how you get the money; the end justifies the means, and financial wealth is power.”
2. The way of serving others – in following the laws of the Creator you will be blessed with the means to serve others, and the more people you want to serve, the more the Creator helps you to obtain what you need to serve them.
If it is just serving your family to enable them to have healthy and happy lives and to be responsible earthly citizens, that is acceptable. But people must realize what they need and what they don’t need and not become grasping and greedy in their desire for having more and more of what they do not really need.
The way of serving others has long been a forgotten and lost teaching in the consciousness of most of humanity. Even in some religious circles, the financial “prosperity message” has been accepted that teaches it’s OK to have excess, and the more you have, the more you are favored by the Creator or the universe. This prosperity message does not take into consideration that living in excess is harmful for other people as well as for the environment. It perpetuates the reality of those few who have a lot, usually too much, and most others who have not, or have hardly anything.
The Field of Law
In the law field, attorneys have written laws to benefit themselves and have controlled whole societies based upon the fact that people have to depend upon them in areas of mediation to solve the problems of humankind in business, family difficulties (like divorces and child custody), lawsuits, and so on. Hardly any attempt at resolution or agreement in any area of modern life can be done on your own without hiring an attorney to overlook it, because people are so afraid that someone else is going to sue them. And the laws, of course, have already been written (by the lawmakers who have usually been attorneys) that make it very complicated to move forward in a contractual agreement without an attorney, who charges huge fees.
The basic human-to-human handshake of trust is a lost reality. So in the business world today everything is connected to the law, and unfortunately much of the law is corrupt. Only God’s law is uncorrupt, and God does have His principles, laws, and statutes, and if they are followed by non-greedy persons, there would be no need to hire an attorney, who usually is one of the greedy ones.
The Medical Field
In the medical field, everything is connected to making money. It hasn’t always been that way. Most doctors really used to be concerned about healing people. Now there are just a few of the tens of thousands of doctors who are really concerned about the patient and just not their pocketbooks. The cost of paying loans back for young practitioners just out of medical school is a chain that locks them into the greedy system that often takes half a lifetime to pay off, if ever. The medical system is set up that physicians have to go back to school periodically and pay to learn something they’ll probably never use. It’s the same with massage therapists and other healing practitioners.
Psychiatrists are the worst culprits of being disconnected to really being able to heal anyone today. They are connected to the A.M.A. (the American Medical Association) and the pharmaceutical companies. It’s a several-hundred-billion-dollar connection to the pharmaceutical companies. The psychiatrists have developed hundreds of new disorders that they diagnose for patients, for which there is a new pill to prescribe. Medicare and Medicaid usually pay for those expensive meds, and the government allows it because certain politicians and lawmakers also benefit financially from subsidies and kickbacks from corporations of the medical industrial complex.
These psychotropic meds can create mindless drugged zombies who won’t be able to really get an education to think for themselves because the fallen system needs slaves to work menial and manual labor jobs. Stalin and Hitler murdered millions of people. America drugs them and keeps them medicated with “legal” drugs.
Today, in psychiatry free-thinking individuals (who think outside of the mainstream mindset) are often diagnosed as “bipolar” or by some other personality-disorder label. Free-thinkers united in some form of group are often called “cults.” Throughout history these free-thinkers have been burned at the stake by those in the power-elite who feared their free thinking, afraid that they will oppose the power-elite’s insidious plans to make money off of the “common folk.” Today doctors are addicting school children by prescribing legal drugs, which cause more psychological problems than heal them.
I, of course, realize that some medications and drugs are necessary to heal the body’s many systems, but in the field of psychiatry I have my doubts if any drug is actually necessary to heal the mind and soul. The Soulistic Medical Institute—which I co-founded along with Niánn Emerson Chase (a descendant of Ralph Waldo Emerson, who was a minister, an alternative thinker, and definitely connected to the Source of light)—uses a method in counseling called “morontia counseling,” which addresses the soul/mind without the need to prescribe any drug or diagnose someone with a mental illness.
I strongly suggest that you view the documentary film Making a Killing: The Untold Story of Psychotropic Drugging, which has to do with how psychiatry and the pharmaceutical companies are keeping teenagers and young adults, by the tens of thousands, addicted to drugs in both civilian life and the military. To learn more about the film, contact the Citizens Commission on Human Rights (cchr.org).
Which Source Do You Connect To?
Basically there are two connections to two different sources. One connection is to the forces of evil and greed of what many call the “Devil” or “Lucifer”—the source of darkness. The other connection is to the forces of goodness and justice of the Creator—the source of light. Both of these sources are a personality.
The dark force wants individuals to think that the Creator is just a force and not a personality, because Lucifer does not want humanity to trust in a benevolent, loving Father that created humankind. The dark force basically wants you to trust in him, and you don’t have to become a Satan worshipper to trust in the Devil. You don’t have to do rituals or read Satanic books. You do that by not trusting your neighbor and by not being trustworthy yourself. You do that by making disconnects with everything that is about love and instead putting your trust into the fallen systems of attorneys and politicians who distort the law, psychiatrists who prescribe debilitating medications, educators who teach values based on materialism, and bankers who misuse your money.
In every walk of life there are those connected to the source of light and those connected to the source of darkness. Unfortunately in contemporary society—because of tremendous materialism—there are many more connected to the source of darkness than there ever was in the history of this planet. Thus, we have the great confusion that exists all over the world in the political and economic systems, as well as in medical and educational systems.
The Great Connect And Disconnect
Within the law of karma or cause and effect, wrong actions or wrong thinking results in some kind of negative event happening to the perpetrator, and unfortunately to others, including the innocent. Many people on a spiritual journey think that people in India and Tibet are more spiritually oriented towards doing the right thing because of their consciousness of karma. I would think so, with the exception of those people in India who are more “westernized” and getting away from the teaching of karma.
In Western civilization, particularly America, there is hardly any consciousness of karma or cause and effect. They kid around with the slogan, “What goes around comes around,” but even an awareness of that saying is not a deterrent against wrong actions. In reality, the Creator set the laws of cause and effect into motion long ago, right before freewill sentient beings were created. Even scientists today are discovering that certain deadlier diseases seem to happen with frequency with people who are less moral or ethical.
There was a study done with nuns in a monastery for a period of more than 50 years. It was discovered that many of the nuns live a much longer life than females do outside of the monastery. This is attributed to nuns trying to walk a more virtuous lifestyle in their relationship with the Creator.
Many have observed that individuals who achieve great financial wealth and status through unethical means and by stepping on others and hurting many people are usually not happy people, and many of them die of awful diseases. Their money cannot buy their health.
Some of the happiest people are indigenous and live in the mountains of various countries, away from modern civilization that has become mechanized and materialized. They display no or very little mental stresses like anxiety and depression. These people also live longer than most Americans and others who live in industrialized and technologized societies.
Those closest to the earth and who have a greater connect to the Earth Mother (Gaia) have a sense of connectedness to each other and all natural things. They are more in tune with the positions of the sun and moon. They do not have to read books of theology to know the Creator, nor do they have to be evangelized by Christian missionaries or any other religious missionaries to be spiritually oriented, for they have a relationship with the Creator and believe there is a Great Spirit who created everything. Most of these people also realize that there are dark forces and a head of the dark forces. In their cultures they have many names for the Devil or Lucifer.
The teachings of the two forces of light and darkness go back long before the Old Testament, the Bhagavad Gita, or other religious books. The URANTIA Book teaches that the Planetary Prince (also called the Sanat Kumara by the Tibetans) was a benevolent being before his fall and that he reigned on this planet for 300,000 years as the Planetary Prince before his fall from the divine way of love, beauty, and goodness. The URANTIA Book calls him Caligastia, and he himself fell to his supervisor Lucifer’s evil declaration of self-assertion and unbridled liberty. Lucifer was a Primary Lanonandek Son, a ruler of 607 inhabited planets. Caligastia was a Secondary Lanonandek Son, a Planetary Prince.
Millions of celestial beings fell in the Lucifer Rebellion. Christian fundamentalists and other religious fundamentalists call these fallen ones “demons.” The URANTIA Book does not teach that there is a hell, where souls burn in an everlasting fire. Hell is right here on Earth, when human beings are separated on any level from their Creator, when they cannot hear His inner voice and plan for their life and destiny, or the voice of their spiritual elders.
Many people do not even know that they are supposed to listen to their Creator’s voice for guidance in their lives. And if they don’t seek that guidance from God, the fallen celestial beings are right there to give their advice and their guidance, which always leads to suffering, tragedy, and even death.
Millions of people worldwide are rebelling against dictators and systems—both religious and political—that do not serve the people. These many millions need to come to the higher realization that they will not find their peace and happiness or fulfillment in even a benevolent leader, because there will always be enough evil men in government to stop any good leader from implementing a more benevolent leadership for society.
Many of these others in governments, such as the Congresses and Senates, claim to have a relationship with the Creator. But because of thousands of years of false doctrines in those religions, even here in United States, fundamentalism has crept in, and individuals think that they are hearing from God when in actuality they are hearing from the doctrines of fundamentalism and narrow-mindedness.
What I have been advocating for more than 20 years, and what is necessary on a worldwide scale, is for people to join the SpiritualutionSM movement. This movement consists of individuals who have come to the realization that they have to obey God over man and trust God over man, trust God over the corporation, trust God over any paycheck anywhere. And they have to seek the Creator’s will, as opposed to their own will or the will of anything or anyone else—including their antiquated religions.
Basically that is the First Commandment: to love the Lord your God with all your heart, mind, and soul, and your neighbor as yourself. This is the connection that all humankind has to discover again. It was a known spiritual fact in ancient Dalamatia (also known as Atlantis). This is why this civilization was great. But when the Lucifer Rebellion occurred, individuals became more connected to Lucifer and Caligastia and that higher civilization of Dalamatia deteriorated and was finally destroyed by the infiltration of those under the influence of the Rebellion. And this is what is happening now to America and the rest of the world that has been touched by materialism and greed.
