If you think of harming someone, this is the same as actually doing it, in terms of the spiritual world, since the spiritual world is vibrational, which includes thinking.

All of our punishment institutions, including jails, laws, church confessionals, and so forth, are systems of illusion. The order of the universe, the infinite justice of yin and yang, naturally takes care of all motion and compensation. We don’t need to invent arbitrary ways to make balance with punishments.

Memory is merely the process of tuning into vibrations that have been left behind in space and time.

The usual heresy consists in denying the existence of a god who has created us. It is a much more interesting heresy to imagine that possibly a god has created us and then to say that there isn’t the least reason for us to be impressed by that fact. And certainly not to be thankful for it.

We are all surrounded and bombarded by thought-fields, and the thoughts we claim as our own are like a continuous universal broadcast. Some thoughts are cosmic in origin, while others are like local stations. The pituitary gland is the primary radio-receiver, channeling all wavebands and frequencies. It transmits selected frequencies (through secretions) directly to the pineal gland, which then amplifies certain broadcasts for transmission throughout the body. The pineal gland has total control over what it will and will not transmit through its controlled manufacture and release of the melatonin hormone. High melatonin production thereby increases the facility for receiving and transmitting high-frequency cosmic and local broadcasts, and leads to a greater state of cosmic awareness – a state simply of ‘knowing’. In this regard, it is interesting to note that the Pineal Third Eye has been found to contain very fine granular particles, rather like the crystals in a wireless receiving set.
