"You cannot convince by denunciation. There should be a grand dignity in your answers, a moral personification of your communion with spirits, which will exert a more potent influence on the world than all the replies which you can make to attacks on our cause in vexation or a hasty zeal.”
— Spirit of Sir Francis Bacon
god: The conscious matrix that contains and supports the known universes. Origin is unknowable. Extent is inconceivable. Desire is assumed to be self-knowledge. Also referred to as “Father,” “Allah,” “The Almighty,” “All That Is,” and innumerable other titles.
realms: Areas or segments of the matrix which provide environments for different forms of existence. Generally delineated as to distance (in time or connection) from a central (or primal) area — the core of the network. Realms are sometimes valued as being higher or lower than one another; Heaven being higher (more important) than Earth, for instance. As with rings showing tree growth, it is more accurate to think of all realms as equally holy segments that are either nearer or farther, or older or newer than the core.
spirit: A part of god that has been sectioned off to form a seemingly separate but still linked individual. Felt in man as the “conscience.” Spirits are continually being created and survive as individuals until they are fully reconnected to the matrix. The spirit exists across multiple realms and serves as the link between the mind and the rest of the matrix. Also referred to as “Christ Consciousness,” “Holy Ghost,” and “soul.”
mind: The collection of memories obtained by spirit since its creation (i.e., its individuation). This includes skills acquired, lessons learned, and personalities formed. These memories are never lost by the spirit, although memories from one physical lifetime are usually suppressed during subsequent physical lives. The mind controls the voluntary actions of the body. The mind is analogous to son, as in “Father, Son, and Holy Ghost” (god, mind, and spirit).
body: The mechanism (including the brain) through which the mind is able to interact with the material realm. As the physical body develops, a more subtle duplicate grows, known as the “astral” body. When the physical body expires, the astral body survives and serves as the container of the spirit/mind in the next realm.
sin: Intentionally and unnecessarily causing or allowing harm to another living being. Sins are violations of conscience; that is, they interfere with the link to the conscious matrix — they separate us from god. The discomfort associated with such a condition can be ignored while living in the physical realm; but upon death, the sinner is directly exposed to the full force of a guilty conscience and suffers greatly therefrom.
reincarnation: Literally, the process whereby spirits undergo sequential lives in the physical realm. Spirits are not limited to physical lives, however, experiencing numerous existences in many realms prior to recombining with the matrix. Individuals vary; for instance, some spirits claim that they never have and never will occupy a physical body.
belief: a thought/opinion having no evidence of being true. A belief may or may not be harmful.
faith: a thought/opinion in opposition to known facts. Rarely, if ever, is having faith a good thing.
Acceptance of factuality, affirmed pending new evidence in
kindness: Demonstrating thoughtful concern for the welfare/happiness of others. Treating others as you would like to be treated.
tolerance: Neither condemning nor resisting any behavior that does not cause injury to others. Accepting
or ignoring unfamiliar or uncommon modes of dressing, talking, relating, loving, and living, even if irritating or
forgiveness: Accepting apologies and forgetting transgressions. One can tolerate another’s actions even if that person is unaware of being a bother; but forgiveness cannot be bestowed unless requested. It is severely insulting to tell someone they are forgiven for an act that they deny doing or believe justified.
integrity: Being honest, fair, and forthcoming in all situations,
especially those that tempt one to be the opposite.
joyfulness: Don’t worry; be happy. The
spirit is immortal and invulnerable. Maintaining a
positive, relaxed, and loving attitude is important for
physical and mental health.
