ABSOLUTE INFINITE BEINGNESS, GOD, THE FATHER, ALLAHA
What we know of God we see
in reflection as witnessed both externally and internally.
Absolute Beingness is, above all, the Divine Common
Selfhood, as Beings within the One Being. Love, Light and
Life belong to the primary Nature of Absolute Beingness as
Total Love, Total Wisdom and Almightiness.
The Love of God is
universal, ceaseless, and unconditional. It is the Love of
God, expressed as Grace, which lies at the core of Creation.
The Light is pure, luminous Super Self-consciousness.
Everlasting Life is the eternal motion, generation and
regeneration of Its expression. Other characteristics of
Absolute Beingness, in Its Omnipresence, include
Multiplicity, Self-sufficiency and the Will-pleasure to
express Itself in Itself as Creation. Absolute Beingness
manifests Itself as the Logos and the Holy Spirit, 'and
these three are one' (1 John 5:7).
That aspect of God which
lies beyond the reach of human and Archangelic
comprehension. The ultimate Source, the fathomless and
inarticulate depths of the Divine that are beyond
expression, for 'no man hath seen God at any time' (1 John
The Archangels are logoic
and Holy Spiritual Beings, who build, govern over, and
project themselves into the universes. Within Absolute
Beingness are Orders of Archangels, Holy Monadic Beings,
each Order containing myriad upon myriad of Beings of the
same kind. We know of the existence of twelve Archangelic
Orders: Thrones, Authorities, Dominions, Principalities,
Overlords, Seraphims and Cherubims together with others,
named and unnamed. They possess Total Wisdom, Love, Power
and Absolute Self-awareness. Angels are elementals of the

archetype. A Holy Monadic emanation, on its way to the Idea
of Heavenly Man, passes through the Idea of Archangelic Man.

BEING and EXISTING
Being is our Divine Nature,
boundless and eternal. Existing, as the expression of Being,
requires time-place-space conditions. Existing has a
beginning and an end and is thus a temporal phenomenon.
Above the noetic state, the
causal states are non-dual conditions of pure Love, Causes,
Ideas and Principles, cared for by the higher echelons of
the Archangelic Orders. They are also known as the fifth
heaven and above.
CAUSE AND EFFECT, LAW OF
The Law of Cause and Effect
is recognized by scientists as well as mystics. This Divine
Law of growth, harmony and balance, requires action to
result in reaction. Every deed, thought and emotion has a
consequence, either favorable or detrimental. Karma, a term
from the East, is the accumulation of the 'effects'. Not
limited to the gross material plane, this instructional Law
can operate over several lifetimes as well as within much
CAUSES, IDEAS and
The Will-pleasure of
Absolute Be-ness is the primal Cause. It is the Cause of
Creation. From within the Will-pleasure of Absolute Be-ness
all subordinate causes spring. Causes then give rise to
archetypal Ideas. Archangels work through the Ideas and
apply Total Wisdom to each form. Every Idea holds within it
the whole Circle of Possibility and Probabilities of the
form to be manifested. Principles govern the expression of
causes in time-, place and space.
CIRCLE OF POSSIBILITY
Each form contains a
Principle known as the Circle of Possibility. A full
embodiment of Total Wisdom, this Principle delineates all
the expressions of each phenomenon of life. All forms are
continually developing: from seed to tree, from child to
adult. Life requires change, movement, so that experience
may be gathered from the many perspectives of a Circle. Each
form changes in appearance, though never in nature. In the
Eternal Now a form is complete, with its Circle of
Possibility already established. On entering the worlds of
existence (material, psychical and noetical), the Circle of
Possibility of a human being is inscribed on the Permanent
Personality. No form can escape its Circle of Possibility,
thus ruling out transmigration from one form to another
(humans will always reincarnate as humans).
CIRCLE OF PROBABILITIES
While the Circle of
Possibility is the ideal development and is inescapable, the
Principle of the Circle of Probabilities allows for the
halting of a developing life at any point in its expression
in a given plane. A seed may not grow, a young tree may
become diseased and die, or a child may pass-over (to
continue in another dimension). Within each Circle of
Possibility we find millions of probabilities.
personalities we may come into conflict with one another and
the gulf between us may seem great, but in our common logoic
consciousness we are unified and indivisible. This is what
Joshua Emmanuel the Christ taught when He said, 'Inasmuch as
ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren,
ye have done it unto me' (Matt. 25:40). This is the Common
Selfhood. In other places Joshua speaks of this: 'Ye shall
know that I am in my Father, and ye in me, and I in you'
(John 14:20) and 'I am the vine, ye are the branches' (John
15:5). That we all share an equal place in Christ is one of
the most profound and greatest truths.
In the Cosmic Consciousness
every event, past and present, in all the universes, is
recorded and preserved. The Cosmic Consciousness is
constructed of Mind by means of living elementals in the
Contained within the Cosmic
Consciousness is the Cosmic Memory (Sanskrit: Akashic
record). This is the 'heavenly archive' where impressions,
actions, thoughts, emotions and desires are chronicled. By
attuning himself to the Cosmic Consciousness a mystic can -
within the limits of his own development - study and know
the Cosmic Memory .

EGO and EGOISM
Our use of these terms is
not to be confused with contemporary psychological
terminology. Egoism misuses Mind through the construction of
selfish desires, through base emotions, greed, malice and
envy. The Ego (with a capital E) is the Self as Beingness,
our Self-aware Soul nature, and is reflected through a
reasoning and loving personality. While egoism (the sum
total of unbridled elementals) is the source of dis-ease
throughout the personality, the nation and the world, our
Ego nature brings forth love, compassion, reasoned thinking
and reasoned action.
Every thought, emotion and
desire creates and transmits an elemental - also called
thought-form - that carries on an existence of its own. We
create and regenerate two types of elementals. When negative
emotion prevails over thought, we have created emotional
thought-forms, or desire-thoughts. When our ideas, desires
and emotions pass through reason and love, we create
reasoned thought-forms, or thought-desires. An elemental can
never be destroyed, only dis-energized (when no longer fed
with etheric vitality). Elementals of a kind collect to form
powerful group elementals. If an individual, or a collection
of individuals, are vibrating at the same frequency, they
will attract such group elementals. Archangels also create
elementals (e.g. nature spirits and angels) in the service
of the Divine Plan.
ETERNAL NOW, ETERNAL PRESENT
Time and place are concepts
resulting from, and sustained by, impressions generated in
the worlds of separation. Consequently the concepts and the
experience vary according to your location within the
universes. The worlds of existence are contained within the
higher, causal heavens, of the Eternal Now. Any experience
we have in the worlds of existence is but a slice from the
larger whole, the state of Everlasting Life, where past,
present and future collapse into the Eternal Now.
Within etheric doubles
etheric vitality breaks down into four conditions of ether:
creative, sensate, imprint and kinetic. Creative ether
constructs and maintains the phenomena of life. Imprint

ETHERIC VITALITY, MIND
'Our daily bread', etheric
vitality (Mind at a certain frequency) is obtained from the
sun, breathing, meditation, food and rest. We swim in a sea
of etheric vitality which surrounds and permeates the globe,
yet, through disharmonious lifestyles, most of us exhaust
our portion of etheric vitality and are unable to restore
it. Everything in existence, including our bodies, is
constructed within a mould of Mind vitality (i.e. the
ETHERIC CENTERS, SACRED DISCS
Centers of energy and
activity (Sanskrit: chakras) located at various points on
the etheric doubles of our bodies. Each of the three bodies,
from the gross material to the more refined, displays these
centers, which correspond to organs of the material body.
These centers act as gates and storehouses for elementals.
Each body of everything in
existence, from the simplest to the most complex structures,
possesses an etheric double centered within the body and
extending slightly beyond it. The etheric doubles, both
perfect and incorruptible, serve as the moulds for a body's
construction and in the preservation of a body's health.
Within etheric doubles ether is accumulated and distributed
to various parts of the body. The etheric double exists as
long as the body (whether material, psychical or noetical)
is projected. When a body dies (passes-over), its etheric

self-consciously while out of our bodies.
Not only an individual or
theoretical belief in the dogmatic truths of a religion, but
an all-embracing relationship, a recognition of, and love
for, Absolute Beingness. As such it involves the
transformation of our personality, whereby we are taken up
into the whole theanthropic activity of God in Christ and of
man in Christ through which we realize our Theosis. Faith,
above all, is an active virtue: 'Faith without works is dead
...' (James 3:26).
Anything, in order to
exist, is created according to an everlasting Divine form.
There are billions of forms reflected in the worlds of
existence. Each form possesses a unique Circle of
Possibility, established in Total Wisdom, that demarcates
its expression in the worlds of separation. The Archangels

At the point of our first
incarnation, having passed through the Human Idea, each of
us is protected and guided by a Guardian Archangel.
Throughout our long sojourn in the worlds of separation, our
Archangel helps our Permanent Personality plan and
experience each incarnation - all our valuable lessons -
though never tampering with our free will. Our most faithful
companion, this Archangel (with whom we are egofied), is
from the Order of the Thrones.
MATERIAL WORLD, BODY
The lowest vibration of
Mind. Mind made solid to compose the three--dimensional
gross material world and body.
Also called the Idea of Man
or the Human Idea. Our bodies are constructed according to
the Causal Law of the heavenly human form.
Not simply the physical
organ but the spiritual centre of mankind's being. Man made
in the 'image and the likeness' (cf. Gen. 1:26) of Absolute
Beingness as Reason and Love, our truest Self, our inner
sanctum, through which the mystery and union between the
Divine and the mundane is consummated. 'Heart' has thus an
all-embracing significance. Prayer of the heart means prayer
not just in the emotions and affections, but of the whole
person. We should strive to purify our hearts for 'God
knoweth your hearts,' writes Luke (16:15).

Spirit-Ego-Beings. A Holy Monad might be thought of as one
of countless myriads of 'cells' within the Multiplicity and

The Personality as a
unified Divine Being. Selfhood encompasses all the
expressions of the Self from Its apex as the Holy Monadic
Spirit-Ego-Being filtered down to the petty present- day

devalued; each is cherished in its own right. Our
Spirit-Ego-Being partakes in the Will-pleasure of Absolute
Beingness (to express Itself in Itself) by expressing Itself
within Its own Selfhood.
A term indicating the Self
in Its expression as the Permanent Personality.
An inner exploration to
trace the sources of our emotional and noetical behavior
with the resolve to self-consciously structure our
personality and its subconscious. The determination to free
the self of the limitations of egoism, by releasing 'your
conscience from dead works' (Hebr. 9:14), is moving towards
the wise and loving voice of the Soul. Daily introspection,
also termed 'looking within', is the process of
self-examination, of 'knowing thyself'. This is the core
practice of every Researcher of Truth and all those
interested in Self-Realization.
JOSHUA EMMANUEL THE
God's 'only begotten Son'
(John 3:16). Joshua is a direct and pure Ray of the Logos
incarnated, by immaculate conception, in Palestine twenty
centuries ago as the 'Son of man' (Matt. 18:11). His Divine
Teachings, as preserved in the New Testament, are cherished
in our work as universal and timeless, offering
indispensable guidance in the exaltation of consciousness.
CAUSE AND EFFECT, LAW OF
The Logos, the Divine
Common Selfhood, is Absolute Beingness manifested as Super
Self-consciousness. Logos has been translated from the Greek
to mean 'Word' and 'In the beginning [authority*] was the
Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God' (John
1:1). The Logos is 'the real light which enlightens every
man ... coming into the world' (John 1:9). Joshua Emmanuel
speaks as the Logos when he says, 'I am the Son of God'
(Matt. 27:43), and as Joshua when He speaks as the 'Son of
man' (Matt. 18:11).
The inner reaches of
introspection become the outer reaches of meditation, as the
exploration moves beyond the subjective experience of the
present-day personality, into the boundless oceans of the
Mind, towards alignment with the universal and eternal.
Mind is the bearer of all
life. Everything that exists is made of Mind at varying
frequencies from super-substance, substance, to solid
matter. Mind is an emanation of Absolute Beingness imbued
with the Total Wisdom, Love, Power and Purity of its
Creator. Mind, however, is not an immortal Being, but rather
substance eternally used in all Creation. Mind is Divine at
its source, and holy in its expression. When mind is used to
express its everyday, idiomatic meanings, it appears with
'm' in the lower case .
Absolute Beingness in Its
manifold nature as gods within God. The entire diversity of
Life resides within God, 'which is his body, the fullness of
him that filleth all in all' (Eph. 1:23).
The mental world. A state
of Ideas and unexpressed forms in the Eternal Now.
From the Noetic state the Archangels derive the forms for
creating and sustaining the phenomena of life. This state is
where we may come to rest in between incarnations.
NOETICAL WORLD, BODY
The five-dimensional world,
and the most rarefied of the three worlds of separation. In
the noetical world - the world of thought and home of the
noetical body - Total Wisdom of Absolute Beingness first
finds expression as thought-forms, ranging from galaxies to
unicellular organisms. This is a world of seven planes, each
with seven sub-planes.
Observation is part of our
Divine nature. Attention without tension. Perfect
concentration. The ability to observe in detail and to
recall what we have observed is vital to our understanding
of the Divine Plan.
A euphemism for what is
commonly termed 'dying'. Passing-over is properly understood
as an episode within a Circle of Possibility where a
personality concludes its existence in one dimension only to
continue in other worlds. It is in no way separate
from life but part of it.
That part of the Permanent
Personality which records the experiences and lessons it has
received in the space-place-time worlds. The permanent atom
is situated in the etheric heart of each body
simultaneously, and registers emotions, thoughts, reactions
and experiences as they occur in the worlds of existence.
The active and expressive
part of the Soul, both within and beyond the worlds of
separation. It filters knowledge to and from the present-day
personalities and distills wisdom.
A personality developed
during each incarnation, which we may call 'George' or
'Mary' or whatever. The present-day personality is a
projection of the Permanent Personality into the worlds of
separation. This petty self, infatuated with knowledge
resulting from the five senses, is the sum total of its
elementals. The work of the present-day personality is to
cultivate a humble, moral and loving character.
CAUSES, IDEAS and
PSYCHIC WORLD, BODY
The four-dimensional world,
also known as the 'world of emotions'. The super-sensuous
psychical world is composed of seven planes, each having
seven sub-planes. It is to the psychical worlds that we
travel in first exosomatosis, in our psychical body, and to
which, on passing-over, we first go.
The relationship between
the psychical world (emotions) and the noetical world
(thoughts) is so interwoven that we need often to consider
them as semi-unified. There is scarcely a thought without
some emotion, and in every emotion there is a measure of

of psycho-noetical substance, formed through visualization
by means of noetic light. Once formed this elemental is

The esoteric Christian
concept and practice of psychotherapy encompasses a complete
range of healing. Not limited to treating problems within
the personality, a real psychotherapist is concerned with
the noetical, psychical and physical well-being of human
beings. An aspiring psychotherapist must train himself in
many fields: Self-conscious use of etheric vitality (as the
four states of ether), the ability to visualize,
comprehensive knowledge of human anatomy including the
etheric doubles, understanding the sub-consciousness, and
awareness of Divine Laws. A psychotherapist is first and
foremost a humble Researcher of Truth whose effectiveness in
the healing process (not considering himself a 'healer', but
rather a worthy conduit for the Holy Spirit) depends on the
purity of his heart and consciousness. Motivated by
compassion, understanding and, above all, love, he values a
friend in need as a Spirit-Soul-Ego, in the Common Selfhood,
with time-place-space difficulties to be resolved and
The Greek word for
repentance, 'metanoia'. signifies primarily a 'change of

sorrow, contrition or regret, but more positively and
fundamentally an analysis of our erroneous ways coupled with
a resolve not to repeat them. Repenting means turning our
thoughts, emotions and deeds towards alignment with the

into Super Self-consciousness, which is total awareness in

Absolute Beingness: complete Abundance, Blessedness and
independence of all needs.
When a ray of a Holy Monad
passes through the Idea of Heavenly Man, a Soul is. The Soul
is not created; it is the precious 'pearl' of Spirit (Matt.
13:45, 46). The incorruptible Soul, which St. Paul called
the 'Spiritual Body'(1 Cor. 15:44), is in a formless state
as Spirit, yet retains the human Idea. When returning to the
Godhead, the Soul marries the Spirit-Ego-Being in a state of
Super Self-consciousness, as the bride marries the
bridegroom, cf. Matt. 25:1-13.
Our Self as a Divine Being:
boundless, eternal, and immovable. Our Spirit-Ego-Being is
the Self as Holy Monad, Super Self-conscious and luminous,
in at-one-ment with the Self-sufficiency and Multiplicity of
the Godhead. The Will-pleasure of Absolute Beingness to
express Itself within Itself is identical with the Will of
our Spirit-Ego-Being to express Itself in Its own Selfhood.
Researchers of Truth
understand the triadic nature of their subconscious.
One chamber of the subconscious contains all the elementals
composing our personality. The second chamber is the
storehouse of life-giving etheric vitality. The third, and
most valued chamber, is that of the Logos and the Holy

WORLDS OF SEPARATION
The three worlds of
existence (material, psychical and noetical) in which we
spend our periods of seeming separation from Absolute
Beingness. These are worlds of duality, of time-space-place,
which we experience during each incarnation.
