Lesson 8 - New Spiritual Horizons

Two Worlds at Once

 Lesson 8

The Soul and The Body

An intelligent light.

In the next lesson you will be learning more about yourself, your environment and your universe.  Examine this chart we will use for reference. 

In the center is a symbol for the universal person.  It is a symbol of you.  Above your head is pictured a circle that represents your real life force.  This little halo is the symbol of your intelligent part.

We can think of it as an intelligent vibration, energy or the ‘Real’ you.  Let’s call this vibration “light.”  Science tells us that every human being is equivalent to about four watts of power.  This energy is measured in your body by British Thermal Units or heat, and it keeps the cells of your body together.  When you see a cadaver or dead person, three things are missing from that body – the heat, the intelligent part and this power or energy.

The connection between this intelligent part and your physical body is known as the “silver cord.” Here is a Biblical reference to the silver cord:

“Before the silver cord is snapped, or the golden bowl is broken, or the pitcher is broken at the fountain, or the wheel broken at the cistern, and the dust returns to the earth as it was, and the spirit returns to God who gave it.

Ecclesiastes 12:6-7

Levels of Consciousness

Learning to be one with all.

When a person really understands himself and realizes their purpose here on earth, they are prepared to “graduate” from the earth plane. A soul that has gained self-awareness will become what is called in the Bible a “Messenger of God,” or angel, or ascended Master. These are souls who have learned to be one with all things.

These highly evolved souls become helpers of people here on earth. We could say they have power equal to four-watts-plus. When they come close to a person they give the person’s nervous system an extra charge of energy. This is experienced by that person as chills or a tingling of the flesh that is often called “goose bumps.”

A second state is that of being earthbound. Suppose someone passes on from the earth plane in a state of confusion. They are mentally and spiritually in skid row. Because of the lack of balance in their state of consciousness, they become what the Master Jesus called an “unclean spirit” or an earthbound soul, or also known as a soul experiencing karma. They are not really on earth, but they are still thinking about things here on earth.

There is another level of consciousness called “Limbo.” Let’s say we have a person on earth who never really understands what life is all about. They are a good person, but they have no awareness about themselves and where they are going. When they pass on, they end up in “Limbo.” Until that person can come to some awareness about themselves and the real meaning of life, they will remain there. Like so many people, it just took too much effort to search within for the answers to life.


Recall an experience when you felt your angels or guidance helping you.


Command of Yourself

Respect your means.

When a person indulges in likes and dislikes they separate themselves from the total picture of “being.” They find themselves fighting for their rights instead of just being and accepting. If that person doesn’t realize that they are an essential part of the universe, they will build a pattern of failure. They will work for months at something and then blow it up in a few minutes.

If you want to get somewhere fast you must learn to go slow. “By the inch it’s a cinch, by the yard it’s hard.” You must respect your means. Your patience will give you your maturity and you will learn to go at your own pace. You will see that your pace is your tempo of your universe that only you have command of your timing and changes.

By wanting fellowship with your guidance, you are free and holding your own in the universe, for you have accepted your responsibilities. If you are accepting your responsibilities, you are standing straight and tall with the Spirit. You are a shell that dances to the rhythm of the ocean.

If you need your guidance for your protection rather than as your wayshowers, you want to be protected in your life and you have become your own slave. You are like a perfectly balanced scale, but if you insist on being protected, you become like a person on a teeter-totter with no one on the other end. You jump up, but your efforts bounce you back to the same place.

When you become your laws of your universe, you become wise and have your fellowship with Spirit. Wisdom is when you take everyone into consideration in your decision. If it feels right to you, it will be right for the universe.

Ask yourself: How can you stop putting pressure on yourself?

Being of Service

Command yourself through service.

The reason you came to planet earth is to find yourself. Through finding yourself you become of service to others. If you cannot do something for yourself, you cannot do anything for anyone else. When you become of service, you are in command of yourself and you know what you have and where you are going.

You can help people more effectively when you can see the total picture. The more conscious you become of your situation, the more aware you are of your scope. It is like climbing a tree, the higher you climb the further you can see. This is what you have been doing spiritually all of your life – climbing higher to see a bigger picture.

We are often afraid of trying something new because of a fear of making mistakes. Actually, very few people make mistakes. What we call mistakes are really stepping stones. A mistake is when you bump your hear in the same place three or four times because you haven’t learned from your prior experience.

“Look not to the things that are seen, but to the things that are unseen for the things that are seen are transient, but the things that are unseen are eternal.”


Where have you come from, where are you going and what are you doing here? Your parents, and your involvement with others have influenced you on your journey so far.  Now that you know your plan may be quite different from theirs, what do you plan to do now?

Are you ready to make this practical?
