In the previous texts it was obvious that many
laws from the old World Year has lost their validity totally or
partially in the new World Year. This does not mean that they are
without influence at the beginning of the new World Year; such matters
are always a gradual process, and the new World Year has only just
Nevertheless it is important to consider the question that
what is taken for granted today will continue to be right, despite the
fact that justice and righteousness in general, even within the time
frame of one World Year or part thereof, are dynamic concepts, which
easily can shift in their appearance.
The spiritual - as well as the
social code of conduct that one grants oneself, is strongly depending on
this. From the point of the cosmos there is no re-evaluation of all
values - the accomplishments of the old World Year remain
accomplishments. It may be taken or granted that, in the light of the
more penetrating, at this time not so secret anymore, Knowledge of the
new World Year, these accomplishments will acquire a different
appearance and especially a different significance. This does not
necessarily mean that is has a deeper, more noble meaning. On the
contrary: many a concept from before the Threshold, is of little
influence after the Threshold. Most of the philosophical and religious
systems have a certain form of messianic ideal, and only few systems
emphasize self-salvation. This is mostly related to the repression of
Paganism, that in its highest evolution does know self-salvation, and in
which the Gods fulfill a role, as it is also present in the Book of
Spirits. The new World Year will prove that a messianic ideal is not
valid. The concept "Soter" (Savior) does not relate to anything else but
the latent self-liberating power of the Self, independent from the fact
that this power will come to full development or not.
concept in itself brings about that at present the messianic religions
have already lived out their existence: the savior-idea as light image
appears to be nothing else but a self projection, from the Self-nucleus,
which is already seen as purified. When the Christian God "offers"
himself, then this is nothing else but a symbol of self purification for
the benefit of the Self, and of his fellow-man. Making one step further
and the ideal of bodhisattva has been reached. Only the understandable,
but not less the unnecessary fear for the Self, for the High Loneliness
and for the required courage and alertness, that the idea of a savior
seems plausible. Hereby, the appearance of the savior is irrelevant,
although some have been more perverted than others by its followers.
One must free oneself from the paternalizing of saviors and subsequently
of similar religions and systems, in order to discover the true Soter in
oneself. This Soter is called Freedom, is called Cosmic Width, is called
Universal Seriousness, the three elements which together form Wisdom.
No wisdom is in him who is not free within himself, because he is a
thoughtless slave of others, who think in his place or at least pretend.
No wisdom is in him also when he is deaf and blind, who believes what
others see and hear in his place or pretend to do so.
No wisdom is in
him neither who is frivolous to the All, because he is a spiritual fool,
who leaves his responsibility to others, who pretend to fulfill the
cosmic plights in his place.
The path that is open, is not the one of
the least resistance. In stead of other thoughts, enlightened or not,
one has to think for oneself. In stead of echoing other people's
sentences, one shall have to learn to speak from oneself. But above all:
in stead of going to promised lands of eternity as if being part of a
traveling companionship, one shall have to oneself find the answers to
cosmic questions, and to find the spark in order to alight the innate
eternal Light. The era of belief is totally over; the era of Cosmic
Knowing has started.
