Journeys in the Present is an attempt to explain the stages of the spiritual path and offer guidelines for climbing through each stage. Finding the pathway to enlightenment that works for each one takes much trial and error and many starts and stops. We learn of progress that can be made through the stages of the path and guidance on the path through different means offered to us. Each person needs to explore all these other paths, so they will eventually realize, after many, many lifetimes that the answer of the mystery of life was inside them all the time. This is the point at which they no longer have to reincarnate. When they reach this realization and know without a doubt that this is the answer, the truth, then they can, in turn, help others by joining the teachers and guides on the other side.
The soul is what one must contact to know oneself. To know who one truly is, is not one particular event or phrase that can be spoken. One’s true self is made up of all the myriad parts of oneself, including the physical, emotional, mental and spiritual aspects of a person. To know oneself is a combination of knowing what one likes to do with and for his body, to know what things will affect his emotions, what mental thought challenges him to aspire to higher thought and to know what spiritual concepts form the borders of his life. The concepts ingrained into people as children are what will form the experiences of that person for the rest of their life unless the consciousness can be raised to allow these to be changed. Consciousness must grow and expand along with the physical body.
A human being is a complicated and intricate “piece of equipment.” The mental, emotional, physical and spiritual bodies can be compared exactly to a computer set-up; disk drive, monitor and printer. The operator of the set-up is you. If you are synthesized in your higher and lower minds and have integrated the soul and the personality, your messages to the computer will be accurate. They, in turn, are given to the disk drive for storage, (seedcore) and can be brought back to your present reality at any time. They also can be expressed in a reflected manner (monitor) and in a concrete manifestation (printer.) Any time wrong input occurs, it breaks the chain reaction between the integrated circuits and the operator of the system. This then brings trouble. Sometimes the trouble is in the form of inaction. In some cases it is in the form of illness and in some it is in the form of explosion.
The Creator’s mind was a large, ungainly, awkward field of energy to try to explore this fascinating new planet with, so the decision was made to split His energy apart into small pieces and let each piece, or spark of His energy, explore on its own. When the Sparks entered the physical bodies, it was never intended that they should loose contact with the main body of the Creator God that stayed in the higher realms. The plan was to always have open lines of communication. Channeling is part of the plan as it allows this communication to take place. Channeling is the mechanism by which the cycle of evolution is accomplished on the earth plane. Therefore, channeling is a natural, normal stage of evolution for humanity, whose time has come.
This Course is based on The Chrysalis Teachings. Chrysalis is a state of expectation. It is similar to that period of waiting while in the mother's womb to begin a new life. This comparison of Chrysalis to a babe in the womb puts the progress of humanity at the same comparative level in their progress towards a new life, which will be as the opening of the door to understanding. They are at the instinct level of comprehension as far as sensing that which the next stage will bring.
Humanity is trying to correct a very complicated makeup with simple tools and it cannot be done. It is to be compared to digging up a football field with a teaspoon to the level of one foot deep. It is an impossible job with no end in sight. To be able to understand the tools needed they must first understand their complicated makeup. The Chrysalis Teachings by Norma Hickox are guidelines leading into the new society. They will help in all areas of restructuring behavior and give day to day help for each. No church will be involved. The Chrysalis Teachings will stand alone on the basis of their integrity as the common-sense replacement for past authority figures. The purpose of The Chrysalis Teachings is to explain things in simple language and terms, and show misinterpreted teachings.
The first part of the teachings is the designing of the human being, the second part is the stage of the new creation that he is in and the psychological path of the brain, the third part will be the Science of Music which will enable the sub-atomic particles to evolve to the next stage, that of the eighth universe. At this time humanity will take a huge leap forward in evolution, one of the quantum leaps. And the Chrysalis Teachings will have been the instigator of this quantum leap. Does this bring it home as to how important these teachings are?
