Belated Happy Mothers’ Day to all mothers, women, Mother Earth, Mother Nature, Divine Mother! Glory be to our mothers!

I will substantiate today the thesis I made in a previous article about the effects of breaking of vows. Vow-breaking is the working of one’s ‘inner demon’ (see my article “Inner Demon, Doppelganger”), it is as demonic as any criminal act. Vows pledged to certain Orders are particularly those that will be dealt with heavy penalty by the Karmic Board, and the neutralization of effects is something I have no idea about for now. Let me meditate on that later.

Meantime, just to show to you what the deleterious effects of vow-breakage can do, let me cite some cases of brethren of my libertarian-service Order, the Phoenix. As I said in a previous article, to my own shock, I found out that Leviathan (Satan, Ahriman, Belzeebub, Anti-Christ) was himself actively involved in fragmenting Phoenix, and is likewise doing the same to many fellowship groups here and in other fallen planets. Right now I see the same pattern happening in the charismatic fellowship Couples for Christ, and pity this huge brotherhood it is fragmenting at a time when it has been showing great strides in its social development campaign (via the socialized housing Gawad Kalinga).

Here are some cases of what’s happening, as the brethren of Phoenix are now being engulfed by the most evil of energies from the 7th Dominion of the Dark Side:


·         Jack M. Formerly Grand Premier of the supreme council, late 70s-early 80s. Committed to get active in reviving Phoenix in 1994, promised me not to join the Free & Accepted Masons. To my shock, he joined masonry, disappeared in Phoenix. And secretly got involved in gold smuggling overseas, through passenger plane operations…. Result: JM is today suffering from debilitating stroke. Slowly deteriorating, he’s almost in vegetable state.


·         Roger M. Another leading youth Phoenix. Formerly from the chapter for Philippine School for Business Administration. Committed to be active and help me in reviving and re-engineering Phoenix to a grand order. Secretly got involved in overseas smuggling (gold, other contrabands), with Yakuza partners. He got caught, jailed, then went back home with brain damage. …Result: Since the mid-90s yet, he was a vegetable for life. Lucky enough, he’s got a devoted wife to take care of him. He’s till deteriorating gradually, and worsening by the day. Yet he lives.


·         Tony S. One of the originals. Committed to help in re-engineering, but was half-hearted. Always found reasons not to get involved too much. Disrespected the innovations that I was introducing to the Order. Till he dropped out, around the late 90s…. Result: His wife divorced him, c 2001-02. Past his 50s, as a development professional he can’t get a job above the coordinator level, which makes him financially average if not troubled. Some brethren, such as Brod Ronald (his former colleague in a NGO), parted ways with him, on ideological grounds. At his age, in his own words, he said “hanggang ngayon wala pang nangyayari sa buhay ko” (till now nothing substantial has happened to my life). Coming from an intelligent man, who attended the premier university, what a pity!


·         Cesar M. Formerly of UP Diliman chapter, married to Phoenix sister Annie M. Refused to even attend any of the Phoenix fellowships since after we met him in Sept. 1994. His wife Annie wished so much to get involved again, but was blocked by Cesar….Result: Annie began to suffer from debilitating cancer in the 90s. For almost a decade she suffered. Then, around 2005, she died of the ailment. Pity on this man, who knows not what he’s doing! I hope he won’t lose his only daughter, so cute and beautiful like her mother Annie. Or lose his advertising job, his only fund source.


·         Arnel S. Another leading youth Phoenix. Formerly of Adamson University chapter. He’s been appearing in past anniversary and other events in 94-98. He showed enthusiasm to get involved, but always floated the excuse that he was a family man, was active in civil society (Left), had no time for Phoenix. …Result: Around the late 90s, his wife suffered from debilitating ailment (apparently cancer). In one surgery alone, his family had to spend nearly P400,000 which, in the 90s, was a fortune here. I never heard about him again till the 1998 anniversary.


·         Jun M. Quite leading brethren, but mentally unstable. Began suffering from psychosis in mid-80s. Was able to function in his job for a while, till 1990. Before that, his wife Gina began a long bout with cancer. We’ve been together in civil society for a time, and he was among those who joined me to revive Phoenix in 1994. However, due to his lingering bout with schizophrenia, he couldn’t keep focus. Only in 1999 did he become active. Did some appreciable tasks. Then his wife died couples of years back. He’s still dysfunctional job-wise, he can only do volunteer work and is a bum till now. Lately, he betrayed me and the Order, put up another group with his factional pals, does not even know the consequences of his own action. What would you expect? The perennial loser guy. A jinx to his own family. Living a vicious circle.


·         Jim M. The type who’d regard Phoenix as a mere loose club. Cronyist since we were youth, Jim had this aura of creating an inner circle even if he superficially relates to brethren. He was factional in youth, had Attention Deficit Disorder condition, was an underachiever and phlegmatic in personality. Committed to help me in re-engineering Phoenix in 1994. But he was so superficial in his behavior, ‘plastic’ as we called it in Filipino, his commitment was half-hearted. In the 1990s his own wife, a feminist leader, divorced him. He was simply unable to make his wife happy. Even in the new Phoenix (grand order), he hardly did anything appreciable such as to build a lodge. He recruited his cronies, and still aspires to build a club of his former activist cronies. Then, in 2005 he betrayed me, slandered me before a former boss with whom I departed ways for his group’s incompetence and unwelcoming behavior. This was the last straw. Already guilty of treachery, this guy never even put his foot forward to apologize, and instead moved to get his faction out of the Phoenix and is now building this club of cronies. What will happen next to him is worth observing.

More brethren will die in the coming years, and chances are that by 2012 all brethren will see deaths to themselves, or spouse or family member. Add to that the catastrophe of financial collapse, debilitating mental ailments, or any disaster that would come in ‘surprise’ fashion. Nothing is surprising about their destruction, come to think of it. They broke vows, broke with Phoenix like it were some garbage of shit, and what would you expect? They unwittingly unlocked the 7th-dimension Dark Energy veil!

So, you fellows out there better re-examine the couples of vows that you may have broken in the past or are about to break. As to the karmic penalties for the vow breakage, only the Karmic Board can fix that and revise it with the help of certain Boddhisattvas. Question is, do you even connect to Boddhisattvas? Do they even figure in your life paradigm? Save your own souls, fellows. God bless!

Erle Frayne D. Argonza

Magandang hapon! Good afternoon!

Almost everyone experiences fear, among which is the fear of the Devil. Why not re-examine your behavior, and one time or another you’d be going through the rituals of demonizing people around you: neighbor, fellow officesmate, Saddam Hussein, or anybody outside of you who would exemplify the Demon-incarnate.

Fellows, the demon is right inside of you, so please don’t over-bother yourself with looking for demons outside of you. True, there are ‘devils’ (fallen angels, negative aliens of the Reptilian type) and ‘demons’ (interdimensional demented beings) everywhere, but you failed to see this Inner Demon inside of you. Mind you, we all have this petty demon inside of us, and it matters how we manage to rise above its dictates on us—through the Primal Self, or desire-driven pursuits.

Inside of us too is an ‘etheric double’ that looks just like us. It is our doppelganger, and at times it can disengage from us, show up elsewhere and materialize right there, looking exactly just like us, and then moves back to be re-integrated into your physical body. The doppelganger is the repository of everything negative in us, becomes our ghost when our soul departs with the astral body, and disintegrates after around 500 years or so. Our Inner Demon necessarily nestles in the doppelganger, they are One.

Since we all tap Light from above, at varying grades of intensity (masters and mystics tap the greatest), the question that arises is: for what purpose do we use that Light? If 51% of the time the Light is used for Primal pursuits, than chances are that we have become Demonic or moved over to our Dark Side, ceased to be human, and is a hazardous Thing that moves around freely.

If at least 51% of the time the Light is used for service-for-others, loving others, productive pursuits, and constructive engagements, than we end up more human at the end of our life. Better if 75% of the time we use the Light or ‘spirit’ for higher purposes, and only 25% or lower for primal-sinning purposes. This way, we have a chance to evolve a bit higher, and when we reincarnate at some other time, we will be of a better quality of being.


What do we do to get this Inner Demon down the drain? Tough question, fellow Earthan. Should we control our passions, thus ending up with a tamed Inner Demon? Lucifer taught us that Path before, and it backfired. I am myself not in frequency with those who use a ‘passion control’ method, like the Born Again, fundamentalists, and their likes who are, in effect, wittingly or unwittingly serving Lucifer. Controlling passions will only lead to our repetitive return in the physical plane without nary a bit of soul improvement. Lucifer saw the result of his flawed prescription, and he never repented at all about it. Bad! Arrogant! From a Being of so much Light, a producer of Light himself, who till the end of his “last breath” was producing Light and sharing this to His own minions.

The better way is through gradual deprogramming renunciation. Gradually, deprogram each of your vices (opposite of virtues), and then consequently build virtues. This is not the same as controlling passions. On the contrary, if passions strike you while still young, go ahead and flow with it for a while, and then realizing thereafter that flowing with the Primal brings you down, then you yourself with rise up above the passions and flow with the Light or beneficial energies instead.

Remember the story of Mary Magdala? She rode astride her Inner Demon for some time, both for survival (she has to make a living through commercial sex) and probably for pleasure (sex, wine, controlling people were damn good pleasures). Until the World Teacher, Jesus Christ, arrived in her life and she had this paradigm shift.

Now, do you ever know of any occasion when Jesus condemned passions the way Lucifer did? “He who hasn’t sinned will cast the first stone,” was his candid declaration to the folks who wished to condemn a sex worker & sinner. In that process, the respective Inner Demon of the folks were projected unconsciously on the sinner, and as a matter of expiation exercise they would have stoned their own same Inner Demon. And the horror of it is that another person will die due to their own sinfulness. See?

In some previous writings of mine, I already elaborated on the matter of deprogramming of vices, building virtues, the use of prayers and meditations for enhancing divinity, and related spiritual technologies. They are the ones that are easily applicable and practicable, so I’m recommending that you examine their efficacy.

Again, fellow Earthans, let me repeat, the more dangerous Inner Demon is just right inside of you rather than those external ones. Even if there were 1 Billion demons and devils surrounding you, like they did to the baby Krishna, if you are vibrating at higher frequency, are virtuous and possess a strong aura that is truly protective of your being, then those Evil Ones will never be able to attack nor destroy you. On the contrary, they would snub you, feeling frustrated and giving up on their annoying abominations.

So, Dear One, please work out to tame your Inner Demon and your doppelganger as well. Don’t enslave it as this will certainly lead to schizophrenia. If you get to that point of manic-depressive disorder, your Inner Demon-doppelganger will then invite external Evil Ones who will possess you collectively. It may take another lifetime before the possession will be corrected and healed. Or, you may end up becoming demonic yourself, and may take many lives before you attain relative self-integration.

Learn how to dance with your Inner Demon and eventually tame it, making it conform to your will. It can be done, mind you, yes it can. The various teachers and masters have demonstrated to us the tools to do them. Have the will, courage, patience, you will be able to tame this Inner Demon. May you succeed in this noble task of yours. Carpe diem!

Goodwill and peace!

At this juncture let me share notes about the deprogramming of vices and building of virtues as an essential lesson in the Path. These tasks are one and the same: you will advance in the Path by building virtues, and building virtues is a matter of deprogramming vices.

You see, a lot of people are not exactly evil, yet you see them existing here in 3rd Density or 3rd Dimension. If they aren’t evil, then they must be good people, and so they are saints. Wrong! Better listen to the late US President Abe Lincoln when he registered the observation that “a lot of people don’t have vices but they don’t have virtues either.”

Now, that’s a part of the human condition, nay the tragedy of human existence. One lives here, isn’t exactly evil and possesses probably nary a defect that is so gross as to be incapable of unlearning, yet nary a virtue either to be adjudged as worthy of being counted among the wisest and most sagely people. That’s why they are called folks: they do not at all stand above others as to be called ‘extraordinary’ precisely due to their virtues.

The building of strengths or virtues is incidentally making waves today among the most urgent traits that ought to be built within the worksphere. Many management consultancy groups offer team building lessons or ‘social technologies’ that include certain tools about how to deprogram a bad trait and replace it with a good one. Without realizing it, these experts or consultants are very close to what the spiritual masters have been working all along for eons now: of deprogramming vices and building virtues.

So, dear fellows in the Path, if you’d ask me a question whether it’s alright to employ such tools for your self-development, my response is a loud Yes. By all means, please go ahead and immerse yourself in those workshops offered by consulting groups, organized by your company or employer. Do not put attitudinal barriers into the said practices by saying “I will only participate here because I’m required to and because it will be good for my promotion.” Ride the tide, flow with the wind! For failing to do so, the result would be disastrous: your own anxiety disorder condition may be reinforced, rendering you one step backward in the Path.


But indeed, before everything else, there must be a constant realization within your part that you have a long list of bad traits or ‘vices’ that must be deprogrammed. Failure to engage in that recognition, and more so stubbornly believing that nothing’s wrong with you, that you’re near to perfect, would ruin your chances of progressing in the Path.

So, begin by recognizing what those defects are. It’s so simple a thing to do, and do it by fixing a schedule for the task. You can do it inside your church, a coffee shop, an eco-park, atop a mountain while you’re with fellow mountaineers, beside the sea, inside your home, or wherever you find yourself most comfortable. Your listing can begin by reflecting on your own observations about yourself. Then, you can proceed to the feedbacks coming from other people, such as when they remark that you always come to meetings late. If you are hard up in making self-reflections, then begin right away with the feedbacks from others.

Now, to ensure that your esteem won’t sag so badly as the long list of weaknesses might prove unbearable to your psyche, then come up with a list too of your strengths. Your simple task in life is to maintain those strengths and even possibly build them up even more. But don’t ever be shocked to find out that your weaknesses may end up longer than your strengths. Admit it, that’s life, that’s why we’re here in 3rd Dimension that is our school for learning.

After determining the list of traits, both for strengths and weaknesses, then begin a deprogramming schedule for the weaknesses. This task is no easy thing to do, and please don’t ever brag that in just a day they will be gone. Bragging itself is a vice, so if you are a braggart, list this down as a weakness. Many braggarts suffer from Attention Deficit Disorder and need psychiatric help as a tool to deprogram the trait.

For optimal results, take one (1) month to deprogram a vice. If you meditate regularly, meditate on the vice for one (1) week, by asking yourself first why do you possess such a weakness. If you don’t meditate at all, then use prayer: before sleeping, ask your Guide or Guardian Angel to give you answers as to why you are, for instance, a braggart. The answer will come to you intuitively, mind you. For a yogi like me, the answers come in pictures, like some 1 megapixel photos, flashing before my eyes.


Now, do immediately meditate or pray, right after doing the diagnostic questioning, by deprogramming the vice. Here would be some tips to do, whichever of the following practices you wish to use:


·         Meditation: Visualize the vice you possess. Be creative in your visualization. E.g consummate liar. You can visualize the trait as a huge, bad lizard that harms people. Deprogram it then by visualizing that the lizard will be neutralized, or killed. You can visualize an angel coming from higher space, coming down with an unsheathed sword of Light, and tearing down the lizard to pieces. Do the visualizations for a week.

·         Prayer: Try to visualize your Guide or Guardian Angel standing in higher space in front of you, assuring you that He or She is around to help you. Do pray with a purple-colored candle, as this will help in the ‘healing’ process. Petition the Almighty I Am Presence, thru the help of your Guide, to deprogram the vice for you. Improvise on an invocation such as “My Guardian Angel will deprogram my tardiness for me,” and declare it seven (7) times. Then end with Amen.

After a week of meditation and/or prayer, observe the results. It would always be best to observe the results in the social sphere, in environments where people are around. Do this for the next three (3) weeks. See the results by noting the feedbacks from other people. If you used to be tardy and come to meeting late, and then your office mates will observe you changing the pattern, then indeed the vice has been quite deprogrammed. All you need to do is to sustain this new strength, then move on to the next deprogramming schedule.

For a vice to be effectively deprogrammed and the corresponding opposite—virtue—will be built, I would counsel strongly that you only take one trait at a time. Do not mix up two or more ‘evils’ and force a deprogramming of them altogether. Note the term ‘force’ there: you are indeed hurrying up too much by mixing up traits altogether. Remember that your Unconscious Mind, which is the repository of the traits, has its own complexity. It is best to get the cooperation of your Unconscious by working on a trait one at a time.


As to the observable or ‘visible vices’ such as smoking, licentious sex, gambiing, doping, and shopaholic behavior, do the same procedure. But assign a longer time frame for these ones. They may be caused by childhood fixations and traumas, so it may take a bit more time to deprogram them. I used to smoke a lot, and I found out from my own mother that it only took a short time to breast-feed me as I was lactose-sensitive (I had to be bottle-fed with soya milk). So, knowing my psychoanalysis fairly well, I realized that my smoking has a great deal to do with the breastfeeding deprivation, that smoking was compensatory for this unconscious lack of an essential maternal provision.

I kept on quitting smoking since young adult age, and only got to quit it in the late 1990s as I already suffered from the following by then: asthma, chronic tonsillitis/throat infections, sinusitis & allergic rhinitis. My ‘mother body’, nay Mother Nature was telling me to please quit smoking as this is a gross disrespect to my physical body that is the vehicle of my very soul. In 1993 I even underwent tonsillectomy, but despite this surgery I went back to smoking. Nicotine had a good way of keeping me awake and the habit made my astral body a bit thicker instantly, and I was getting to be more sensitive that year as my mystical awakening was fast unfolding…. Till I finally quit.

Do note that a lot of these vices were acquired via past life learning experiences, so it isn’t that easy to unlearn them and replace them with strengths. As to which lifetime did you acquire them, don’t worry about the matter too much. Leave that to your Inner Guide or Guides, who see you from a higher dimension. If in case that other people during those lives may have been involved in learning the bad attitude or trait, then add in the deprogramming a forgiveness of those people even if you don’t know who they were. Just trust that the message will reach God Almighty, and this can accelerate the healing process.

Successfully deprogramming vices one after the other and replacing them with corresponding virtues is like winning a war. It is in fact a war against your own Primal Self. Every time you win, you gain more merits in life and move ahead in the Path. Even in your career and/or business you will succeed all the more. Those who succeeded the most financially are, as per result of researches, precisely those people who have greater insights about their own weaknesses and strengths compared to others. Read thru Jim Dornan, Robert Kiyosaki and John Maxwell who are among top gurus of financial success today, and you will hear the same things as I tell you now: self-insight leads to greater financial success.

So Fellows in the Path, learn from the gurus of success. But most of all, do work out to practice those tools and turning yourselves into jewels of exemplary behavior. It can be done, believe it. Amen.

Good day, Noble Seeker!

With certitude I’d reckon that you dream every time your body sleeps. And if thou art Seeker indeed, your dreams are colored in hue most often. Evolutionary Laggards dream in black & white and wouldn’t dream as often as seekers and mystics. As a soul advances in the evolutionary path, so does the access to higher vibratory climes increase, such climes thereby appearing in ever greater colorful textures in dreams.

Do make it a habit to keep tab of your dreams, Seeker. At least keep a memory tab, at most maintain a daily dream journal. Dreams reveal so much about our unconscious and superconscious states, we can’t afford to throw away this ‘tool’ of self-reflection into dustbins just like trash. Were it not for our problems of retrieval, which is a matter of short-term memory, our dreams could be total guides to our daily actions and routines.

Interpreting dreams, however, is no layman’s task. So, Noble One, please learn to interpret dreams with a modicum of mastery. In ancient language, the term exegesis was used to refer to the interpretation of texts, and exegete refers to the interpreter. Since symbolic templates of life today are regarded as text in hermeneutics (art of exegesis) and semiotics (science of signs), then it pays to be an exegete in various respects: dream interpretation, exegesis of myths, interpretation of body language, divination interpretations (e.g. tarot, palmistry, numerology, astrology, runes, I ching), etc.

Necessarily, one must learn from the masters of hermeneutics and semiotics to be able to interpret dreams with some degree of accuracy. It takes some time to learn, but it is a rewarding thing to do exegesis. Rest assured you will procure the greatest benefits from the exegetic process, and you’ll feel a deep sense of satisfaction, sometimes euphoria, every time you’re able to crack the codes behind the deeply coded messages in your dreams.

To name a few representative masters: Carl Jung, Sigmund Freud, Mircea Eliade, Claude Levi Strauss, Umberto Eco among social scientists and philosophers; and, the theosophists H.P Blavatsky, Annie Bessant. You can also review materials coming from popular literature about dreams such as those written by psychics.

In sum, the said experts have contended that the figures one sees in dreams, myths, and cultural symbols (e.g. totem) must be regarded as archetypes. As Eliade clarified, an archetype is a basic structure. In Eco’s semiotics, an archetype is a signifier—a representation of a deeper meaning or structure, the signified. Exegesis basically entails an appropriate unlocking of the signified meanings hidden behind the dream symbols, in the case of dreams.

Note also that the contents of dreams are often related to the dreamer’s experiences in the lifeworld. For instance, when an ice cream appears in one’s dream, this symbol appears on account of the person’s experiencing of eating ice cream. This archetypal subject wouldn’t likely appear in the dream scenes of a person whose entire life is spent in hinterlands where ice cream isn’t an established fact of daily life.

Dream themes could be a revelation of the following: unfulfilled wishes, ailments that are about to surface, past life scenes being replayed from ‘above’, events forthcoming in the next few days in the person’s life (dejavu), prophecies about one’s country or planet, and lessons from one’s Spirit Guide. Freud made very interesting contributions to first two forms (he was keen most of all on mental ailments being a psychiatrist).

The lessons or messages from one’s own Spirit Guide or inner space guru is what you the Seeker should be on the alert for as a sign that you are about to enter the Path. Or, when you have already began the ascent to the Path, the Guide can show signs that you have just graduated from one stage or phase in the journey and you’re about to move on to a next phase. Usually it takes seven (7) years to begin and end a phase, though if one chooses to stop for a while in one’s lessons the period could be extended.

In my experience, I first began to feel that something uncommon was going to happen to my life when, as a pre-school child, I strongly felt the presence of a mighty divine being, a figure I’d recognize later as the Archangel Michael. His assuring presence (maybe I was networked to his ‘department’) made me take routes less traveled, such as to dream of becoming a priest, knowing that God always watches me.


Before reaching the age of ten (10) I realized how different I was from my siblings. I was overly contemplative, introspective, and nerdy at an early age. And somehow, deep inside me, I knew I wasn’t among the Earth’s people. The daily course of materialistic life that I encountered early enough shocked me so much that I longed to enter the seminary and say goodbye to normal life.

My dreams were very colored in hue, so colored that the dream objects were so real, beginning in early childhood years. Even the smell of dream objects, like the smell of delicacies, grasses and flowers in the fields, and animal dung were all so real, further multiplying the psychic and emotional powers of the dream scenes.

It was at age 18 when I first encountered my mahaguru, the Master El Morya, while in a dream state. I was already a 2nd year university student then. I wished somebody else so wise and divine could explain to me so many questions that the church people and mediocre spiritual pretenders couldn’t explain at all, and were it not for the timely appearance of my guru, I could have moved on to become an atheist for the rest of my life.

I thought it was God who appeared to me in the dream, as He blasted me with feelings of love so incomparably overwhelmingly, encompassing and ecstatic. He gave me a lengthy message of love, encouragement, and note about my future missions. I woke up weeping with joy and euphoria, assured at last that a Divine Being takes care of me personally. From then on, I intensified my lessons in the Path, reading voraciously a diversity of topics, to wit: esoteric philosophy, yoga, ETs & UFOs, mystical science, eastern psychology, paranormal science, theology and comparative religion.

From that time on, my mahaguru would appear every now and then in my dreams. He guided me to the materials that I should read, made me encounter my first yoga lessons right inside the classroom, meet interesting people who were also fellow seekers, and so on. With the passing of time, I recognized my great Guru as the Ascended Master El Morya, chohan (sort of CEO) of the 1st Ray of the Great White Brotherhood. In the succeeding dreams, he would appear more in archetypal form (often as a university professor), while I would perceive his face directly as my mystical vision opened due to yoga practice.

I’ve already entered several phases in my journey. And in 1994 I graduated to a mystic level, no longer seeker but finally reaching the initial ‘end of a journey’, when the Filipino guru F.F. sponsored me into the Great White Brotherhood. My seeker phase had ended, but my mystical path just began then. I still kept on seeing my master in my dreams, with the addition of other masters in couples of other dream scenes thereafter.

Just recently, more than a month ago, I dreamt of my guru again, instructing me in many lessons. The dream scenes lasted for three (3) hours. Some other fellow mystics were there with me during a dream phase. In other dream phases other masters appeared. I just received lessons that could last for over 1 year’s study, offered in just a single moment, which I must gradually retrieve from my memory.

So, Noble One, similar experiences could happen to you. You see, if you dream of your Spirit Guide offering you lessons, even when you wake up to urinate, the moment you go back to sleep the same dream scene will be continued. Or, there would be another scene, but it will till be the Guide offering you lessons that will be the dream theme.

Take note that during the initial encounters with your Guide, your guru may not appear to you in literal form. Rather, the manifestation would be archetypal, e.g. beautiful large sheep radiating light and peace to you. Or, the Guide could appear as your deceased Grandma or Grandpa whom you cared for so much, so the Guide will make use of your grandparent’s image to bring messages to you.

I recalled the narrative of a fraternity brother of mine, Glen B., whom I personally initiated into my wisdom brotherhood, the C.L.. He revealed to me and some brods one day that I appeared to him in a dream, offering him sublime lessons. I was so elated at his narration, and told him that it was his very own Guide and not me who actually appeared in his dream. I was happy because it was a sign that, as a mentor, I succeeded in catalyzing the link between a young seeker and his Guide.

So, Noble One, enjoy reading your dreams, these being exciting, fitful compasses to your journeys. Bon voyage!

Know thyself!

That sounds like a tall order of a command. It really is no command but a task, a lifelong task. It fused together ‘know’ and ‘self’, the task being to ‘know the self’ in its totality.

Self-knowledge is knowledge of a very high order. This we mystics are very much aware of. We regard self-discovery as the last frontier, the frontier of ‘inner space’. To be able to make adventures in ‘inner space’ and discover truths along the way is the very task of a seeker or knower.

To take it for granted that you already know yourself, or pretend that you know yourself 105%, is pure hubris. On the other hand, to be so disabled from knowing the self, so much that you cannot even think of qualities that indicate your personality and level of psychological integration, is a mark of deep fragmentation and disorder. Both tendencies must be discarded.

It pays to know the self. Today’s gurus of success are very right in their contention that persons who have greater insights about themselves get to become more successful than those who don’t. Robert Kiyosaki and John Maxwell, who are on top of this chain of success gurus, have declared this contention very explicitly and kept on re-echoing it in their various writings.

Know the self well, as this is the way to a more successful future. This is another way of writing the formula. To put it in mathematical language:

Success = fn (self-insight)

Success = A + B X (Self-insight)

Where A = Goals in life

B= Pace of acknowledgement and absorption of self-insight

The Teaching is so filled with methods for self-insight, methods and information that past gurus have already shared to the world. You can go ahead and study them well.

Take a look at astrology and numerology. They are examples of methods for self-analysis and insight devised by masters in antiquity. It pays to study them well. The better if you do the study yourself rather than rely all the time on an external agent (numerologist, astrologer) to do the analysis for you. There are information packages that would be best for you to find out for yourself, as you derive the information intuitively.

As a young yogi in the making, I did study numerology and practice its analytical powers on myself and my former students (1980s, 90s). Numerology, using the combined Pythagorean-Chaldean methods, worked so wondrously that each person done with a reading exclaimed their mighty accuracy of up to 90% most often. The lowest self-assessment I received for efficacy was 80%, with 20% error. The highest was at 95%. That high precision renders numerology into a great scientific tool!

Learn as many methods as you can. Study Jung, Freud, Maslow, Erikson, and other personality psychologists. Study also the methods for examining abnormal psychology, so that you will have an advanced method of self-integration assessment. Nobody is perfect, each one of us has degrees of personal fragmentation that’s why we’re here in the physical plane. So please take pains to study the methods and even undergo psychological tests from time to time. This is for your own good.

The last thing expected of you is to declare that you’re perfect okay and other people are very defective. If you make this self-claim, please see a psychiatrist as you delude yourself with grandiose states. You may need to be locked up in an institution, the better for you. Amen.

Let me articulate at this juncture the last of the 7 Ray Lessons that I wish to stress: Serve God and His Creations! I will begin with some reflective notes on the sociological ‘law of reciprocity’ which the masters made known to us through the ‘golden rule’. I will incorporate in the discourse the reflective notes on libertosophy that I elaborated in my book Libertosophy and Freethought: The Path of Illumination for Libertarian Freethinkers.

Sociologists and anthropologists alike discovered the ‘law of reciprocity’ across cultures. In philosophical sense, this law is an axiological standard and is at the core of ethical teachings. On the positive sense, it is stated: “Do for others what you want others to do for you.” In the negative sense, it is stated: “Do not do unto others what you don’t want others to do unto you.”

In libertosophy, I outlined three core principles regarding the liberation project: (1) to be able to attain liberation, one must liberate others; (2) only the free can set other people free; and, (3) liberation must be done within the context of the social world (never in isolation from people). They are all inter-connected and mutually reinforcing.

The Teaching is clear that one must practice yoga (union) and attain union by (1) immersing in the social world, (2) observing mutual devotion with your fellows, and (3) doing mutual service unto each other. In no way should one opt to attain nirvana via a total detachment, by meditating inside caves, by retiring in monasteries early in life for successive lives, by a prayerful attitude and yet manifesting anti-social behavior towards fellows. Only under exceptional cases should one do yoga in isolation, such as when one has been exhausted due to over-immersion in the social world for successive lives. In which case, one will be allowed to meditate in isolation by your Mahaguru (e.g. Christ) for an incarnation or two.

But after some times in isolation, your Mahaguru will again remind you to go back to the social world or ‘lifeworld’. At the minimum, one might be allowed semi-isolation, through a monastic life, in which case one is in the company of a group and can then conduct service with a team of monks. At the maximum, one must immerse fully “with the crowd”, practice a profession or business for a while, and then retire early so as to do the work of a Teacher. Another option would be, based on good karma in past embodiments, to incarnate you in a wealthy family so that you need not have to work for a living. For the latter experience, you as an advanced yogi-mystic can catalyze your ascent to Master status and become a Teacher early in life, such as Paramahansa Yogananda and his teacher Sri Yutekswar Giri, both of whom came from wealthy families.

Among the current gurus of financial success is Robert Kiyosaki, writer of best-selling Rich Dad, Poor Dad. In his books, Kiyosaki emphatically reiterated the need to do service unto others, by sharing your graces to others. He said succinctly that “the more you give, the more you receive.” Without need to mention, the trait of stinginess speaks of negative backlash. But very graphically, Kiyosaki did stress the dangers of becoming greedy as this would lead to disasters in one’s financial life. Though Kiyosaki is no yogi, couples of core wisdom lessons were articulated by him that reverberate the wisdom of the ancient masters.

Let it be clarified that there is not one fixed form of service. The 6th Ray gets manifested in diverse forms. By praying for others, whether singly or as a team, one does service to others. By extending financial gains to the less fortunate ones such as the clients of a hospice, one does service. By doing relief works for those affected by calamities, one does service. By washing the feet of priests during special occasions, even if such priests are dogmatic and sinful, one does service. Who is without sin anyway? “He who is without sin will cast the first stone,” declared Jesus Christ.

In the emerging contexts, service as a manifestation of deeply divine principles has been steadily increasing. So powerful is the subtle force behind the 6th Ray that even capitalism itself has been transformed from the greedy money-bag capitalism of yesteryears, which has no moral philosophy whatsoever, to that of ‘corporate social responsibility’ capitalism or ‘compassionate capitalism’. Many young executives are turned off by purely money-making concerns, even as some other top echelon executives demand that, prior to their appointment as CEO of a huge conglomerate, CSR must be considered first and foremost. The noble CEO Mr. Licuanan, who steered the Ayala Group for sixteen (16) years, whose leadership led the said conglomerate to grow to multinational scale, made such a demand on the corporate patriarch Don Jaime Zobel de Ayala who empathically listened to him and granted his demand. Look at the enormous stride in the growth of the Ayala Group with CSR at its core principle of operations, which has diversified its investments from Manila to overseas.


Many other young executives, fresh from MBA, choose to shy away from the corporate world altogether. Rather, they opt to serve the NGO sector, or the Non-Profit Associations. In a recent research conducted by me lately about international consulting think-tanks, I was amazed at the trebling of numbers of such young executives who serve international aid organizations and non-profit think-tanks, risking their lives in the poor regions of the emerging markets. This trend is bound to grow exponentially as the years go by, rest assured.

Furthermore, there are also businesses whose nature is to help others in their financial lives. Among these enterprises, network marketing is the fastest growing form. It is among the least understood enterprises, because people are fixed to the old ideas of doing business: pure old capitalistic profit-seeking. Per my own research, network marketing socializes teams of marketers to help out each other, via the adage “the rising tide will lift everybody up.” The members of a team can’t afford to claw at each other like crabs, for the demise of one could redound to the demise of the entire group. The team members observe the lesson that you must help yourself first, and when you gain profits than you can have the extra income to help the less fortunate. It makes a lot of sense, this network marketing.

It surely pays to listen to the new gurus of success including those who brought network marketing to maturity such as Jim Dornan of Network 21. They first of all stressed on the power of the team approach, and the norm of helping each other out. In the process, network marketing and related modalities are very potent at deconstructing the ‘crab mentality’ in the lifeworld. Converging with CSR at some junctures, the new modalities for ‘compassionate capitalism’ may lead to some other modalities in the future, and reformat the world from old-world capitalism to altruistic or ‘community economy’ within a broad context of Information Society.

Understood in another sense, the lessons say “do not hoard what you have, learn to be self-sufficient but when resources permit, share your blessings to others.” Among the various thinkers in the scientific community, it was the Erich Fromm who discoursed on the dangers of the principle of hoarding. He articulated this well in his books, such as the Art of Loving. Hoarding is among the counterproductive traits, and the greater we hoard in life the more we become objectified or depersonalized. Liberation becomes expressed, among other things, in more productive behavior such as loving, sharing, or those related to “being” that make us all more ‘human’ in the process.

The creation of a ‘compassionate society’ has been the obsession of many thinkers particularly those on the Left. “Serve the People!” declared Mao Zedong, who secretly was an engaged seeker and was no atheist. This society, in their mind, should also be a ‘rational society’, so that the cognitive principles of ‘rationality’ should harmonize with the non-rational axiological principles or value-based rules. They envisioned integrated societies, where the detached rationality of modernity would harmonize rather than clash with the value-based axioms of the ethicists and spiritual masters.

At this point, let me stress the narrative of Mother Theresa of contemporary India. This great soul is the exemplar of a saint or master who ascended to the level of a Mahatma or Ascended Master via the Path of Service. It pays to contemplate and meditate on her wisdom adages regarding service and love. She counseled us all to do service no matter what response (indifference or sympathy) would be exhibited by the recipient of your altruism. Even if the recipient hates or scorns you for your behavior, love and serve them just the same, quipped this indubitably holy being. No wonder that she won a Ramon Magsaysay Award (Asia’s Nobel prize) for service, which she truly deserves.

We sorely need the likes of Mahatma Theresa today, and we miss her so much. But we need not worry much, as her likes left the world with large cadres of Godly servants who are referred today as Lightworkers. The increasing presence and influence of the Lightworkers is changing the social landscape of the planet. Every institution of society will more or less be transformed in the decades ahead, as the numbers of Lightworkers increase all the more and their altruism becomes the sacrosanct standard behavior.

One last point that I need to stress is the distinction between the “service-for-self” and “service-for-others”. Because altruistic service had become pervasive for the last successive decades, there are those hoarding-oriented or egotistical types who rode the wave by exhibiting “service-for-self” behavior. In this case, one does service so as to be noticed by others. It isn’t serving others due to a “call of the heart” but rather due to selfish pursuits. It is service that won’t allow you to ascend for sure.


After our periodic conduct of service, it would be fruitful if we meditate on the service that we have delivered. We can make self-assessments whether the service is egotistical or altruistic. It would also be great if some sensitive souls among our fellows (seekers, mystics, masters) would help us in our self-assessments. It should be the job of a spiritual Teacher to be a seeker’s mirror or feedback-giver and self-development counselor, but with the reality that we have a scarcity of teachers this option is equally scarce. If one is already well connected to one’s Inner Guide, then the guide can be a surrogate for the teacher and can share the feedback through dreams or intuitive thoughts.

To conclude, let us all be like Mahatma Theresa, and let’s hasten the construction of the ‘compassionate society’. Let us serve God, our Fellows, Mother Nature and her biological endowments, and show the greatest respect for all life forms around us including minerals. Who knows, the 6th Ray could be the last lingering alchemical agent that could make one ascend to the next level of soul evolution. Try it, amid risk, for God Almighty provides the blessings in your Path and protects you along The Way.

Amen. Aum. Om Tat Sat Om.

Erle Frayne D. Argonza

In this article, I will stress the need for filling up another important ‘glass’ in one’s Path: the ‘glass of Will’. As I have repeatedly echoed in previous articles, faith alone does not suffice to make one ascend the Path towards liberation or salvation. One must fill up other ‘glasses’ of life as well, one of which is the ‘glass of will’.

If life were likened to war, then one must have both lance & sword to be able to gain mileage in many battles to fight. This kill weaponry tandem is equivalent to the Will, a trait that one can’t do without in life. It is Will that keeps one moving in life, and so is it Will that will propel one to climb the Heights of inner transformation. For it is truly a matter of climbing mountains, this task of moving ahead in the Path.

The need for Will-bearers in society led the Hierarchs to evolve a particular class of humans to perform this role: the Warrior or ksattriya class. From among the warriors came a special class, the King, who wasn’t only endowed with Will but was also with extraordinary occult powers like unto the shamans’ or magicians’. The Warrior class, being the embodiment of Will, became the models for developing the traits that were subsidiary to a strong Will.

Weak will leads to stagnation and death, while strong will leads to greater life and liberation. Subsidiary to Will are the following traits: Courage, Audacity, Decisiveness, Self-Determination, and Organizational Ability. Without these traits, human society will flounder and self-destruct. Mutual faith/devotion is as good a pasting material as we can ever imagine, but without Will to enforce the norms of mutual devotion, human associations will self-destruct and society fragment altogether.

Gone may be the Warrior as a class, but in its stead had evolved the ‘Leader Class’. In all sectors of society, there is that high expectation to exercise leadership. Necessarily, the exercise of leadership would require leaders. In political society, we have the Political Class as a subclass of the Leader Class. In the military/police organizations, there is the Officers’ Corps. Among the various professions, we have the Executive Class. Among civil society groups, there is the Mass Leader. Within the Priesthood, there are the Bishops, Patriarchs, and Imams.


There simply isn’t any sector today that doesn’t manifest a need for leaders. And no one sector will ever enforce a lesson of “be weak, remain lowly and weakly in esteem, for thou art of the weakest types.” No Sir, the lesson is for one to follow the leaders and, in due time, for one to emerge among the leadership of the organization, group, or sector. And various discourses have emerged to articulate the need for leadership, the traits of a leader, the concomitant need for organization, and determination as a core ingredient in achieving success in business, professional life, and financial life.

Warriorship—and the Kingly class that it spawned—was originally a response to the need for Rulership. The Rulership principle, being a universal/cosmic principle, must be forged in all the dimensions of human life. Rulership begins first of all with one’s individual life: one must be Ruler unto one’s Self. The philosophers Plato and Aristotle were so adroit at their observation of this principle, that both contended for the need to be King unto one’s Self without reserve. Without the capability to be King unto one’s self, it will be futile to be King or leader unto others.

Rulership then moves on to the lifeworld, where the need for leadership and role models among diverse “In-groups” must be exhibited. Sociologists have done enormous studies on the lifeworld, using the scientific tools of sociometrics to examine the elements of social distance and leadership. Max Weber theorized about the ideal types of authority to explicate leadership types in various contexts: traditional, charismatic, rational-legal. The principles and elements discovered and articulated by sociologists eventually overflowed into the new science of management.

Within the context of formal organizations, the principles and practice of management have already developed to a very highly complex, sophisticated level today. In the evolving context of Information Society, new principles are being innovated on which were largely absent during the time of Weber, Taylor and Fayol, the fathers of the science of bureaucracy. Ouichi’s Theory Z, for instance, elaborates on the trend towards more decentralized, autonomous, participative leaderships. The excitement in the sciences of organization and management is a never ending story, and I myself wish to continuously get updated about them as a sociologist and practitioner of organizations and institution-building.


Onwards to the highest levels of expression of social organization, the need for Rulership remains invariable although the forms for those at the national, regional and global/international ones do manifest their own peculiarity. At this juncture, we have reached the point where the need for a global state has become irreversible, and sooner or later we will have such a polity at hand. ‘Political Will’ shall then be exercised with greater resolve, and international fiats executed with more teeth than before. Otherwise, in this continuing situation of ‘anarchy of nation-states’, we might end up blowing each other apart and destroying the planet through weapons of mass destruction due to our stubborn intolerance towards differences.

So, as one can see from above, it is sacrosanct an expectation to develop Will and its subsidiary traits to be able to climb the Heights to the ‘mountain of salvation’. To be able to forge a strong Will requires intense studies on the subject, intense focus on modeling one’s behavior from the mentors of Strong Will (executives, leaders of professions, high political leaders, etc), and practicing leadership in real life contexts when opportunities for such present themselves. One must also develop the sharpness at recognizing when a context is filled with opportunities for exercising leadership. In both normal and contingent situations, such opportunities present themselves.

As to the study of the subject, it pays to get some formal studies on leadership, organization and management in whatever form. Even when one had already accomplished a program degree or special course on leadership, one must go on and continuously update oneself about new developments in the field. As many leaders (officials, managers, supervisors) have found out, refresher courses make such strong dent that the practitioner gets to be reminded of both flaws and appropriateness in one’s supervisory behavior after a management workshop.

It is also very enlightening to do self-assessments about one’s own weaknesses and strengths regarding Rulership or leadership principles and practice. Many of the weaknesses and strengths are results of one’s own socializations in previous lives which overflow into the present embodiment. Some others are results of socialization processes in the present embodiment. The lesson, which the 2nd Ray shares unto us in our learnings of the 1st Ray, is to sustain our strengths and overcome our weaknesses.

Overcoming weaknesses, through diverse methods of learning and unlearning, is no easy process. But it is a possible undertaking nonetheless. Overcoming the Fear complex is at the core of ironing out weaknesses, and this begins with identifying one’s various fears. A listing of fears could result to a long list, and one should better be honest about them. Honesty about fears will facilitate one’s unlearning of the said traits, while dishonesty will only lead to possible scorn from observers. No one can ever fake Will when one lacks them in certain contexts, since other people are there to observe you. So better be honest, recognize your weaknesses and gradually work out to deprogram them.

Those fears that are learned complexes from out of traumas in life, both past and present embodiments, are the hardest to unlearn. For instance, the habit of obese eating, which could make one mightily overweight, could be traced to a previous life of starvation and death. And so, in this present life, the unconscious fear of starvation leads to indulgent eating habits and obsessive food storage. Therefore, no matter what weight reduction and slimming programs one goes through, the same obese habits would come back and weight lose efforts fail. One must then go through a healing process to be able to solve the problem.

As already mentioned in the previous articles, self-development tools and applications are exploding today. Addressing Rulership-related problems can gain much headway from using such tools. What I wish to emphasize here is for you to add the tool of yoga meditation (and prayers too) to unlock the causes of fears and related problems and take out the dense energies from one’s Unconscious Self. If the fear complex is very deep-seated, schedule at least a week to meditate on a particular fear trait. If the fear complex borders the abnormal or dysfunctional, then better consult a psychiatrist in addition to practicing meditation and prayers.

In my own experience, joining the radical mass movement, at a time of Martial Law, demolished my wimpy or low risk-taking attitude. At age 19 I was initiated via the ‘baptism of fire’, by being posted at the frontline of an Anti-Dictatorship protest rally in Manila’s Rizal Avenue, and was cruelly truncheoned by cops. I admittedly almost urinated with fear and terror on that occasion. But things changed as I joined and led mobilizations against the dictatorship and post-dictatorship regimes. By the time I became a national leader of civil society groups, I no longer had the goose bumps when I faced cops in protest rallies. Many of my warrior traits acquired in previous embodiments that remained dormant in my Unconscious were released along the way, strengths that have since been with me as professional and leader.


Not only that, even my disdain for cops disappeared, a disdain that developed during the terror times of Marial Law (1972-86). I was already a yogi and mystic in the mid-90s when I led national mobilizations by teachers against unjust economic and educational policies. At that time, when I looked at the cops in front of my mass formation, I could only see people who were doing their own duties, many of whom feared the mass in front of them. Yoga had changed the way I look at duty. I hope that both the activists and cops learn to meditate and face each other as people doing their own duties respectively.

For a final recommendation, please don’t miss out on the Bhagavad-Gita among your readings on leadership and organization. The sublime thoughts of Sri Krishna are compressed in this book. It is one exquisite piece that integrates High Wisdom into the practice of warriorship. It begins with being possibly struck by the ailment of indecisiveness while one is already in the midst of battles, and what wisdom lessons to practice to overcome the ailment and win the war eventually. The lesson says: win the war within one’s self first, in order to win the greater war ahead of you. What discourse can possibly deconstruct such a recondite principle, if ever?
