Temples of Learning

Ethel Mclean describes the structure and workings of a temple of learning – the Lodge of the Golden Lotus –  as distinct from a more formal university such as Tesla attended. Let me cite her description at some length:

“There is one particularly beautiful temple where we frequently attend lectures, which are conducted by very advanced beings from a higher sphere. I use the word ‘lectures,’ yet there is no vocal delivery, as you would understand it. I will try to give you an account of what actually takes place.

“It is, as you have guessed, the Lodge of the Golden Lotus, where Donald spends so much of his time, and this temple is, we are told, a reflection from the Spheres of Light. It has been created in meditation by those in this sphere who are attuned to the Brotherhood of Light.

“Its great golden dome dominates the landscape and, when power is being poured down to it from the higher spheres, its surrounding courtyard and beautiful gardens appear to have been dipped in pure gold. The cherished ‘temple flowers’ have a golden hue, as Donald has often told you, and give off an exquisite perfume.

“There are no organized meetings or services in this temple, as there are in the orthodox churches here. Anyone is at liberty to seek its sanctuary for meditation at any time and it is never empty; in fact, whenever we go, it is packed to capacity.

“The earnest thoughts of those who seek enlightenment attract the attention of the Masters who come to give their aid and encouragement. These visitors are not always visible to the congregation, though they are, sometimes, seen by some and not by others. But their presence is invariably felt by all.

“These teachers have the ability to contact the individual thoughts of the seekers and, from them, build up a theme of instruction which brings enlightenment to the whole audience. … This temple is also a great power-house for directing enlightenment to the earth.” (1)

“There are many centres of radiation on your earth that are sustained by the power from this beautiful temple of pure thought; their influence is gradually spreading, as more and more people open their minds to the outpouring of Divine Wisdom.” (2)

The possibilities in the higher planes are endless, Ethel says:

“There are many here who devote their entire energies to learning. There are so many fascinating branches of study to which one’s time can be devoted and we are taught that our efforts here open up new fields of progress for the earth as well.” (3)

Furthermore, as her daughter, Phyllis McLean, notes, “education is not the tedious affair it is on earth. Knowledge is absorbed without undue effort. The mind retains the impression it has received.” (4) This is very different than on Earth where much is forgotten the moment one leaves the lecture hall.

By the time one reaches the Seventh Dimension or Christ Sphere, angels and archangels begin to appear as teachers, according to John  Heslop, a resident of the Seventh.

“The angels and archangels who minister directly to God through eternity have attributes and powers quite beyond finite understanding. To them are committed the behests of the Divine Father. These behests are then passed down from one High Intelligence to another, till they reach us in the Christ Sphere. By us they are communicated to various unfolded worlds.

“Angels from more exalted spheres frequently visit the Holy Temple [in the Christ Sphere] to instruct us.” (5)

I could go on. But my purpose is just to whet the appetite to learn more of education in these miraculous settings so that we can know where to seek inspiration from in our own endeavors to discover new educational approaches for Nova Earth.

Astral Museums

Astral museums are very, very different from earthly museums, Mgr Benson suggests.

“Earthly museums are rather cheerless places. They have an aroma of mustiness and chemical preservatives, since their exhibits have to be protected from deterioration and decay. And they have to be protected from man, too, by uninspiring glass cases. But here there are no restrictions.

“All things within these halls are free and open for all to see and hold in the two hands. There is no mustiness, but all the beauty of the objects themselves sends out many subtle perfumes, while the light of heaven streams in from all quarters to enhance the glories of man’s handicrafts.

“No, these are no museums; very far from it. They are temples, rather, in which we spirit people are conscious of the eternal thanks that we owe to the Great Father for giving us such unbounded happiness in a land of which so many upon earth deny the reality.” (1)

I was always fascinated with the description, from G. Vale Owen’s mother, of the way a globe of the Earth could almost come alive. And even historical scenes would come into view.

Let me cite that description at some length:

“The globe slowly left the pedestal, or pivot, or whatever it rested on and began to float out from the wall.

“As it approached the centre of the space it entered the blue mist and immediately on contact began to enlarge until it became a great sphere glowing with its own light and floating in the blue space. It was exceedingly beautiful. Slowly, very slowly, it revolved on its own axis, evidently in the same way the earth does and we were able to see the oceans and continents. These were flat patterns, like those on the terrestrial globes used on earth. But as it revolved they began to assume a different aspect.

“The mountains and hills began to stand out and the waters to sway and ripple: and presently we saw minute models of the cities, and even details of the buildings. And still more detailed grew the model of the earth till we could see the people themselves, first the crowds and then the individuals.

“This will be hard for you to understand, that on a globe of some perhaps eighty to a hundred feet in diameter we are able to see individual men and animals. But that is part of the science of this institution – the enabling of these details being seen individually.

“Still more distinct grew these wonderful scenes, and, as the globe revolved, we saw men hurrying about the cities and working in the fields. We saw the wide spaces of prairie and desert and forest and the animals roaming in them. And as the globe slowly circled we saw the oceans and the seas, some placid and the others tossing and roaring, and here and there a ship. And all the life of Earth passed before our eyes….

“Soon the scenes began to change on the revolving sphere and we were taken back thousands of years of the life of the Earth and the generations of men and animals and plant life which had been from the present to the ages when men were just emerging from the forest to settle in colonies on the plains. …

“When we had satisfied our eyes for a while, the globe gradually became smaller and smaller and floated back to the niche in the wall and then the light faded out from it and it looked like an alabaster carving, just as we had seen it at first, set there as an ornament.” (2)

Moreover, displays of animals could “come alive:” and even become transparent, accordi9ng to her.

“The animals about the walls were also used for a like purpose. One would be vivified by these powerful rays and brought into the centre of the hall. When so treated it could walk of itself like a live animal, which it was temporarily and in a certain restricted way.

“When it had ascended a platform in the centre space, then it was treated with the enlarging rays – as I may call them, not knowing their scientific name – and then with others which rendered it transparent and all the internal [organs] of the animal became plainly visible to the students assembled.

“Then it was possible to bring over the living model a change so that it began to evolve backwards- or should I say ‘involve’? – towards its simpler and primal state as a mammal, and so on. The whole structural history of the animal was shown in that life-like process. …

“Also it was possible for any student to take charge and continue the development according to his own idea and this not of the animals alone, but of the heavenly bodies and also of nations and peoples, which are dealt with in another hall, however, specially adapted to that study.” (3)

(Continued from Part 2)

Astral Books

What constitutes a book on the higher astral plane?

“There are books,” an anonymous communicator  reveals, “but of quite different kind from yours.” (1)

Mary Bosworth explains the difference between an earthly and an astral book:

“We have books, or the spirit counterpart of books. They are composed of etheric substance, but can be read by spirit sight, and enjoyed by the students and teachers here. They are not quite as Earth books are, but are still something within the touch and sight of spirit, and can be read at any time.

“How could we store up the histories of worlds or the progress of other planet life if we only saw the present? Our teachers of history are wonderful in their learning and their memory, but they prepare the lessons given to others from the books that are within the reach of all in the libraries here.” (2)

These books are constructed by creative thought and without labor, as medium Charlotte Dresser’s father describes:

“It is all so intangible to your way of expression, I do not know that I can describe it. But … if you can think of thought expressing itself almost simultaneously, flashing itself on pages, perhaps you can get an idea of the way books are formed.

“There are such great minds here, and the greatest of earth’s writers find their powers so exalted and so easily expressed, that books may appear without labor.” (3)

Monsignor Benson describes the the mental process of creating a book:

“The method of reproduction here is wholly a process of the mind, as with all else, and author and printer work together in complete harmony. The books that result from this close cooperation are works of art, they are beautiful creations which, apart altogether from their literary contents, are lovely to look upon. …

“The books thus produced are not dead things that require a concentration of the whole mind upon them. They live just as much as the paintings we saw were living. To pick up a book and begin reading it meant also to perceive with the mind, in a way not possible on Earth, the whole story as it was being told, whether it be history or science, or the arts.

“The book, once taken in hand by the reader, instantly responds, in very much the same way as the flowers respond when one approaches close to them.” (4)

The books on the astral plane, however, are not the self-serving accounts of people trying to ensure their place in history. They are what Mgr Benson called “the blunt naked truth”:

“I have made another discovery that for the first time left me astounded. I found that side by side with the statements of pure fact of every act by persons of historical note, by statesmen in whose hands was the government of their countries, by kings who were at the head of some of those countries, side by side with such statements was the blunt naked truth of each and every motive governing or underlying their numerous acts – the truth beyond disputation.

“Many of such motives were elevated; many, many of them were utterly base; many were misconstrued; many distorted. Written indelibly upon these spirit annals were the true narratives of thousands upon thousands of human beings, who, whilst upon their earthly journey, had been active participants in the affairs of their country. Some were victims to others’ treachery and baseness. None was spared, none omitted. It was all there for all to see – the truth, with nothing extenuated, nothing suppressed.

“These records had no respect for persons, whether it be king or commoner, churchman or layman. The writers had just set down the veridical story as it was. It required no adornment, no commentary. It spoke for itself. And I was profoundly thankful for one thing – that this truth had been kept from us until such time as we stood where we were now standing, when our minds would, in some measure, be prepared for revelations such as were here at hand.” (5)

Not telling the truth on the astral pLane is impossible and therefore useless, he tells us.

“Who … writes the book of truth in spirit? The author of the earthly volume writes it – when he comes into the spirit world. And he is glad to do it. It becomes his work, and by such he can gain the progress of his soul. He will have no difficulty with the facts, for they are here for him to record, and he records them – but the truth this time! There is no need to dissemble – in fact, it would be useless.” (6)

Tomorrow let’s take a stroll to a higher-dimensional “museum” and travel back in time….
