I'M JUST THIS GUY, YOU KNOW!   For me those grey drab years, between WW2 and the Flower-Power breakthrough of the Sixties, and also ever since, were illuminated by the ideas of writers of science fiction. During quarter-of-an-hour factory-canteen tea breaks I would maybe escape from the greyness whilst laughing at Isaac Asimov's medieval planet. On this backward planet the clumsy robots (whose sophisticated electronic brains were imported from the Galactic Foundation) had to remember to stoke coal into their own boiler fires for the steam needed to keep moving. Many years later the Arthur C. Clarke Sci-fi, story of "2001" was made into a marvelous film. Even now I can recall the mystified faces of the cinema audience, most of whom sadly lacked the shattered mind barriers that resulted from my early Sci-fi training.   The story was about a highly intelligent race, somewhere in the universe. They had long ago shuffled through the dizzy dead-end limits of the technological era and had then concentrated their intelligence on the question of, why they exist? When they found out why, they were then able to ascend and escape the bondage of physical existence. Behind them throughout the universe this wise old race left triggers or markers as clues to be found by younger intelligent physical races to also help them to escape the same bondage. The cinema audience was riveted by the advanced technology, but obviously baffled by the deeper meaning of the story; individual, conscious and aware Intelligence freed from physical matter.


Around that same time I was a postman who was required to pedal an ancient red bicycle, with 60 lbs of mail, around twelve miles a day to deliver two large and separate delivery areas on foot. Yet another, older postman was required to push along the high street a red-painted wicker hamper set upon two wheels, out of which he delivered parcels to the shops. One day the inspector, absolutely thrilled to bits, rushed in and dragged me outside to see the latest GPO innovation.

No longer would the old postman push the old-fashioned two-wheeled red hamper along the high street. Henceforth he would push a modern two-wheeled red box made from the latest discovery, Fibreglass. Needless to add, it was twice as heavy to push, and sounded like a big drum when it was pushed. Daft, isn't it? Decades later, today the people who stand in remote and strictly private silence in a packed lift or a tube train will wander along the crowded high street whilst burbling loudly into a mobile phone. This twisted thinking goes further so that if they do use a public telephone booth they will resent you overhearing their conversation. What has this to do with Ascension you ask?

Well, it has more to do with the distorted thinking that surrounds the teaching of Ascension. For example, we all are by now fully aware that the masculine/feminine aspects on this planet are out of balance. We also realise that this imbalance is the creation of human thinking intelligence, and that it is only our intelligence that will bring it back into balance. But to bring it back into balance doesn't require women to feel that they must act and think like men. Neither does it mean that men must try to think and act like women. At best each will make a poor job of it, that much is obvious. All that is really required is that both, men and women, truly begin to fully think for themselves. Otherwise the genders will have simply exchanged roles, daft isn't it?

In daily life terms, what does this mean? It means that both, men and women, must first choose to individually banish from their personal repertoire of "get-outs" the handy and non-committal phrase, "Someone should do something about it!"

With practice and determination this could be replaced with, "I am going to do something about it!" But what else is both, positive and gender-free? Simply saying exactly what you mean and meaning exactly what you say. This is a difficult exercise for many people because tact may often become confused with hypocrisy, and dis-honesty is often disguised as realism. Thus the father who thrashes his child for stealing sweets may proudly own his self-built garden shed, made from materials stolen from his employer.

The child understandably is baffled as to whether the thrashing from the child's role model was for stealing, or for being caught stealing. "Oh! But that's different!" But is it? Meanwhile the father's employer may promote regular monthly staff meetings conducted by career-minded, bright young men. These are paid to encourage each of the assembled staff to believe that to their employer, each is a valued member of the team. Simultaneously the employer may be planning massive staff cuts, and the transfer of production to countries with lower labour costs. "But that's business, so it's different." But is it?

There is no need to cite further examples because clear enough is the picture of a society with values blurred and distorted by its own lies and deceit. If the result were equal dollops of beloved happiness and well-fed joy all around, this blurred effect might be justified. Even when we use society's own crazy rules to suggest that the result is justified if it means happiness for the winners, still this wouldn't ring true. No one can be truly happy and exist in the full knowledge that it is at the cost of someone else. This is nothing to do with right or wrong, or good or evil. It is all to do with the energy that has to be continuously drained and diverted by each individual to build personal mind-shields. The mind-shields are needed to continuously keep honesty with self at bay. Happiness fades if the shield is lowered, even for a moment. Let's understand why the human trio builds shields, then we will understand the energy-saving advantages of living without personal mind shields.

Each non-physical human 'me' has to co-exist with a physical body, and with a mind that, though also non-physical, uses the Electro-chemical makeup of the human brain to link 'me' with body. So it is the mind that links non-physical Spirit, or non-physical Soul, or as we prefer, non-physical 'me' to physical existence via the human body. Medical science has demonstrated the technological ability to keep a brain-dead human body alive and ticking over for weeks, months or years as required, long after non-physical 'me' has departed to the Astral. A healthy human being that has lost the ability to think or to reason with coherence and clarity may well continue for a lifetime to exist on the combined mind and body instinctual level. Equally a clear thinking human 'me' with a generous and loving nature, that controls a clear mind, may co-exist with a crippled or shattered and uncontrollable human body for a lifetime. Now let's look at another form of trio.

Nowadays we hear of advanced computerised technology built into the design of automobiles. The computer monitors the functioning and requirements of the vehicle, but also it monitors the requirements of the human driver. The computer will warn the driver when the engine needs oil or water. If the driver chooses to ignore the warning the computer will eventually cut the ignition to protect the engine. This is part of the computer's protective role regardless of the driver's choices. A higher protective function of the same computer, on behalf of its human driver, is to make contact, via a space satellite, with a source of traffic information as to the best route to reach the driver's chosen destination. But always it is the driver not the computer that chooses the destination.

But if the human driver wants to contact the source he or she must always make contact via the computer. Just as in meditation, 'me' must make contact via the mind, because mind is your link with daily life and is also your link with higher dimensions.

Also the computer will only connect with the source when directed to by the driver. Probably the computerised version exists that will safely stop the automobile if its driver became incapable of maintaining control. A similar version may remain linked to the source ready with information for the driver to use or to ignore. Do you see the point we are making? The computer is an emotionless linkage between an emotionless vehicle and its emotional driver. Neither the vehicle nor the computer cares whether the driver drives directly to the destination or stops to pick daisies on route. It is all one to them.

The vehicle's role is to reach the chosen current destination, and the computer's role is to monitor the process. The emotions of anger or of irritated frustration felt towards other drivers are the products of the human driver. The human trio is many-layered and is far more complex. The differences are that the mind does the monitoring but the mind can't think, it can only sense and feel, because it can only respond to the energy flow range at the emotional level. The human body left to itself responds to the energy flow range only at the instinctual level of bodily needs and appetites.   As we will see, just like the kettle draws power from the power station, the self-created human trio draws this flow of energy from the Creator via the Creator's imagined idea.

The unmonitored human mind is fiercely protective and will go to extraordinary lengths to protect the trio. If mind senses that body feels pain, mind triggers the body's escape-or-fight mechanism without consulting "thinking me". In a similar manner, if mind senses that "thinking me" may be hurt, again mind will trigger the same limited mechanism, and again without consulting "thinking me". Mind is fully equipped to handle bodily needs and instinctual appetites but whilst undirected and unguided by 'me' it is not equipped to handle the more subtle higher requirements of "thinking me". In a similar way the computer isn't able to comprehend the driver's thoughts. The difference is that the computer won't try to comprehend where as the human mind will try to comprehend. Mind will try to do something about it, even though it may fail miserably simply because it cannot comprehend thought processes. Let's look at energy.
