Quantum Man, The Guided Missile




The Child Within Us Lives! A Synthesis of Science, Religion and Metaphysics
By William Samuel

INTRODUCTION 

QUANTUM MAN, THE GUIDED MISSILE

  Something enormous is soon to happen in the world; there is no sensitive person who doesn't feel this deeply. In every field—science, religion, philosophy, government, business, or whatever—a strange sense of disquiet is growing, a feeling of Something Imminent. As we look about us, we can see that the world is off course. Many who think they understand, point to drugs, overcrowding, pollution, the overload of information, corrupt government and any number of other possible causes. But what is happening now has a more significant and, as yet, undreamed of cause. The recognition of this deeper dimension comes with a solution for the world's problems! This book is about that.
  
If we think of mankind in quantum terms—as a single organism—we might picture civilization as a missile moving through time and space. This missile has been on its way for many thousands of years, headed for a special destination for mankind. Its internal guidance mechanism was turned on when the great religions and philosophies arrived to give humane guidance to men. For Western society, the missile's central system was activated at the time of Judaism's declaration of one God, and that declaration, along with similar statements from other cultures, has been the primary directive for society thus far.
  
When Christianity arose and broke from the popular Judaism of the day, the missile received input that altered the course, much as our satellites today are given in-flight corrections as they move to do their work in the universe. With each discovery or development in history, Eastern or Western, external and internal, have come new adjustments in civilization's direction. None of the developments in this long line of progression have been accidental or "bad," despite the human tendency to judge them so. Everything that has happened has been driving us relentlessly to this present moment and to the events shortly to begin.
  
Now, imagine the missile of collective civilization nearing its target, ready to receive its final redirection for the next and perhaps last phase of the trip—not unlike the "smart missile" that sees the target ahead and directs the internal mechanism to drive itself straight to the destination. For mankind, the destination is a rediscovery of simple subjectivism, a new mark in non-space and non-time, a fulfillment of the Original Purpose for tangible life on earth.

As far as the relationship between time and space and their interconnections to tangible life goes, the end-game's corrective information is presently being received within the quantum body of civilization. This information is intended to adjust and correct society's major systems for their final movement as mankind comes to discern the true nature of things—particularly time, space, matter and awareness (life). In many ways science, the vanguard of human wisdom, has nearly reached that comprehension already.

What does this final corrective feel like to you and me here in the old-world scene of things? It comes as a new clock turned on within us; as new sensitivity; an increasing intuitiveness; a new perception within us; as certain unfamiliar anxieties, disquiets, stresses and discomforts; as inexplicable fear and depression. Anyone can look at the human scene and see the lids popping off here and there with acts of insanity and people trying to satisfy impossible urges. Who is to say what the northern geese feel before they assemble to make the trek south? Or the butterflies before they start their long upwind search for their ancestral birthplace? I know that dramatic course-altering input is presently arriving within mankind; the sensitive feel it especially. This arrival is not unlike the way the ability to perceive color has developed in mankind in recent millennia. We are told this sense is one of the latest developments of the human brain—but what is presently happening is at a deeper level of mentation. What is it? The arrival of the truly subjective nature of mentation—quantum man's capacity for ever greater introspective self-examination. 

  At this moment, civilization is a little like a field of cotton beginning to bloom: first a boll here, another there, then more and more until one morning we look out and the entire field is abloom. Or, it is like popcorn popping. One kernel pops, then another and another until there is a veritable explosion of the rest. Hard pressed, shaken together and running over, mankind is coming into a conscious knowledge of a subjective sense of things which is certain to alter the course of civilization. The first "blooms" have been the prophets, the seers, the avatars, the insightful, those with eyes to see and ears to hear. Now the field is turning white with the ability to perceive subjectively. Confusion abounds at the unrecognized newness of it all. Now that subjectivism is here, no one knows what to do with it. The major divisions of human activity have not made the necessary adjustments to allow the missile the freedom to change course. Neither education, government, religion nor metaphysics has made the full turn demanded of them—and the time is short. In certain areas, science, with the help of subjective quantum mechanics, has adjusted reasonably well as it goes along searching the vistas of tangibility, but it remains to be seen what scientists will do with their information once it becomes clear that they are now, and always have been, examining consciousness.

  People are individually willing to adjust, as their intuitions and feelings come into focus, but the controlling groups to which they belong, are vigorously holding to the old ways, refusing to listen to the New Sounds within. Either the institutions of mankind adjust to allow men to change mental course, or there will be a sociological anguish unparalleled in human history.

*******************


  Pertaining to this subjective capability within myself, I have come to perceive special things about time, space, and matter that seem to be generally unknown; yet it is essential that Everyman begin to understand them. Like so many of the things that have been shown to me in the past, I know that mankind and his science will find them soon.

One Ego




"Poppy Field" By Sandy Jones

Transcribed from an audio recording by William Samuel, 1978 --   

One Ego

How do we know that God is all?  This is one point one must find; if God Really is All. 

We don’t have to call it God, you can call it Reality or, Isness, or something else. Because we are certainly not talking about so big man who sits on a throne and he has a long white beard, and waves a wand and Jesus Christ sitting at his right hand and something else on his left. That’s not what we’re talking about. We’re talking about something entirely other than that and I don’t mean to be ridiculing those Ideas either. Because those ideas all serve their purpose. and I’m not in any way, form, or fashion knocking any kind of religious concept. Because I am not opposed or contrary to anything that I include within My Self.  Unless I want to be Self destructive.

Now, let's come here.  

So, how do we know that God is all? How do we know that there is one God?  

Judaism began with such a principle. You know, "Thou shalt have no other God before me."  

 Christianity began with the concept of one God. All religious philosophies begin this concept. How do we know there’s one God? What do we mean by One, Singleness? What do we mean by Oneness?  How do we know there is a Oneness? 

Well, these are some of the ways I did get past intellect and finally did get to the heart with it.

Now just consider for example everything tends toward oneness. Everything that we perceive in this Universe tends toward oneness. 

You start out and you got electrons and protons and other particles whirling around a single nucleus and it is one atom, isn’t it?  
And then we have a whole passel of atoms and it winds up being one molecule. You got a bunch of molecules that wind up being one grain of sand. And you have lots of grains of sand that tend to be one rock. And we see that many rocks tend to be one mountain. In all nature, we see everything tending toward singleness. You will find that many mountains tend to be one continent. You will find that several continents tend to be one earth.  It’s always a move toward singleness. You’ll find that several earths or planets constitute one solar system.  A lot of solar systems constitute one galaxy.  a lot of galaxies constitute one Universe. 

Alright, so That which is being the one final Universe is that which is God, That which is being the Totality of Being, is what God Is. 

And that Totality of Being certainly includes Life doesn’t it? There is Life right here, right now, Living, being aware. It is includes trees and bees and little girls with scruffy knees. It includes mountains, it includes birds, it includes all of the images of perception.  All included in and within the Universe.  All tending toward a single oneness. Well, that which is being Life, which is being things, is what we call God.

Now let me show you why It is ineffable. That is, why there is no way in the world to put your finger on what God is. Why It is an undefinable term. Why you can’t outline it or describe it, or use words to speak of what Isness is, or Reality is.   It’s impossible.  

All the religions have said you can define every thing but you cannot define what God is.  And we all know this is true. In fact there was a time in Hebrew history when the word wasn’t even written. There was no word representing God. In fact this is still true.  Some other concepts in the East or Middle East where the word God won’t even be written.

So why then would it be ineffable. Let’s pretend there is a lump of gold here in the middle of the room.

Better yet, let me tell you that everything we see, birds and tress and bees are what we call the qualities and attributes of God. All of you who have studied physics or chemistry know what we mean by qualities and attributes.

Well, Isness is apparently being those qualities and attributes that constitute the Universe. Well, we an certainly comprehend this, something has to be whatever this is, whatever things are. 

There is some isness being the qualities and attributes that constitute the Universe including this Life right now that is living here.

Alright, now why it is impossible to see or perceive God I can point out with the illustration called the lump of gold. 

If you will just see in the middle of the room a lump of gold and pretend that its all and its only and that there is not anything else besides. 

So what are the qualities and characteristics, or attributes of the lump of gold?  Well, one of them is that it’s yellow.  So right, it's yellow, but yellow is not all there is to gold. Well, yellow by itself is nothing, yellow could not exist unless the lump was gold existed. And yet there isn’t any gold itself in yellow. Yellow is just a quality or characteristic.  The quality is because gold is. Now, another characteristic is that the gold is malleable. Well, okay, is there any gold in what we call malleable? There is not, but malleable exists. Malleable is measurable, malleable, since it's measurable, is finite.  Malleable is not all there is to gold. And yet malleable lives and moves and has its being because gold is.   

And another, gold is, you might say, heavy.   Is there any gold in the term heavy? You might also say what its taste would be, I don’t know what gold tastes like, maybe it's tasteless, is there any gold in tasteless?   

You’ll see that the only thing we ever perceive with the eye, or can measure and hear, or touch with the hand, or anyway consciously aware of are always qualities and attributes.  Yet there is no gold itself, no gold in the qualities and attributes. These qualities and attributes exist because gold is.  Even if we knew all there is to know about the qualities and attributes and knew everything about their relationships and inter-relationships, we would still not perceive that Isness that is being the qualities and attributes.   

So it is that if we were to know everything there is about all the chemical things we perceive in this universe, all the physical things and material things, all of the stars and the planets, and all that constitutes them and all of their relationships, and inter-relationships, backward and forward.  And the intellect could perceive all there was to perceive, the intellect would still not have touched that isness which is being all these qualities and attributes. 

So we can see intellectually why we can’t define this term God or Isness. But we can understand that there is Something being these qualities and attributes.

Would you have yellow if there was not an isness called gold? Would you have malleable or soft or whatever the other qualities and attributes are, something has to be them.   


So, therefore there is an Isness, an Ineffable, Unnameable, Being what we perceive to be the Universe. and this consciousness of It. And that Isness for lack of a better word, is called God.

And where is It?  Where is God? Where is Reality? Where is this Ineffable Isness? Well, It's right here, being this consciousness that is conscious of things.

You know, I went around the world looking for God-- twice! Not once, twice. Traveled on and studied in several continents. With all kinds of teachers, only to find out that God was closer than fingers and toes, closer than breathing.

God or Reality is being this very Life I am. This consciousness lives and moves and has its being because Isness, Reality Is, an Ineffable Is. 

Now let me tell you, if this Ineffable can be such a perfect Universe, planets moving in such precision, balance beyond belief --  all the physicists, and chemists are constantly amazed at the intricate, perfect, harmonious, mathematical precision at every turn of the road, in every study. If this Ineffable can be that perfection, then what does this awareness being I have to worry about its existence, its being?  None at all, none at all.

Little Boy Lost





LITTLE BOY LOST

Pondering the enigma of communication one day out in the back country of my hills, I witnessed the happy reunion of a father and his five-year-old son who had been lost in the woods for many hours. I knew the boy would be found—and I knew I knew—but despite the positive knowing, I was unable to allay the father's fears or bring him to understand the Truth I saw. Then, even as I wondered—even as I asked about this inability to communicate when it seemed so important to do it—I saw the little boy and the father find each other.


Oh, such a reunion! A barefoot ragamuffin came running out of the woods shouting with all his might, "Daddy! Daddy!" and I saw the father, unashamedly sobbing, sweep the child into his arms. All he could say was, "Hallelujah! Praise God!" again and again. "Hallelujah! Praise God!"  

Then and there, it was my joy to see the communication was ever so much more than fancy words, proper grammar and intellectual nuances; more than education and cultured sophistication. I saw uninhibited enthusiasm say more in an instant than all the words of the encyclopedia heaped upon all the words of the Bible. I saw uninhibited being, stripped of its world-be possessor. In the twinkling of a "Praise God" and a "Daddy, Daddy," I learned that words are just words. Too many are a clutter, and pompous ones a waste. Simple, unpretentious, tender childlikeness—honesty—stirs the Heart and overthrows the intellect, leaving the child-we-are in the Father's arms. 

Since those days, I have been a child again wandering along the back roads and river banks, enjoying, enjoying... Since that time I have known that the intellectual, philosophical presentation of words is not the all-fired important thing I had made of it before. Then and there I determined, as best I could, to end my own use of pompous metaphysical language and attempt to say whatever might be necessary to say in the tender, simple way so natural to us all.
This is a portion of the simplicity you and I have discovered, dear reader. It tells the Story to the first and the last alike.

————————

"Ah, but what of our dignity if we act so simply?" someone asks.

There has never been more Dignity in all the world than the child who runs to his Father and whispers, "I am home again!  I am home again!"



The Secret Of Communication

This afternoon I held a smooth stone in my hand that existed before a single word had ever been uttered.
Which is more significant: the smooth stone or the words that describe it?

ABOUT WORDS

Dear Mary,
Very often we give too much importance to words. Those who are most devotedly looking for the Truth are frequently the ones most hung up on "This is relative or that is absolute."  How many times have you heard that? I was the world's worst. As a renegade metaphysician traveling over the universe from sage to Guru to Prince to Practitioner to apostate, no one ever became more entangled in the intellectual concern for words and their precision than I. Pretty soon I found myself with certain expressions I did not dare use in the presence of some people because I was sure my words indicated my level of comprehension. Bosh!

Subtle restrictions of expressions—thousands of them—abound within the judgmental framework of coming-to-comprehend the Light rather than being the Light.
In our studies here in Mountain Brook, the first thing we do is to look into the matter of words, thence to come down from that ridiculously lofty and arid plateau of "absolute" versus "relative." All words are relative. No word is absolute. The absolute that Isness is exists in a dimension as much beyond words as a melody is more than a sheet of music or the principle of arithmetic more than a numeral.

There is an intellectual aspect to Truth, of course, and words play their part in that but the Real contains an infinity of subtle essences that is more than words, greater than words. The awakening to these is often precluded in our wrestling matches with semantics.

The Child's Interface




INSIDE/OUTSIDE, OUTSIDE/INSIDE, THE CHILD'S INTERFACE

  Nothing, absolutely nothing, is more important than the following: In all existence, there is a “flow” involved. Be gentle with yourself and remember the flow of old. What was it? When we were children we interfaced with God and the world freely. Our imagination flowed without restraint into the world of people, places and things. By the same token, the world of people and things flowed freely into the child. We saw a frog (outside) and, presto, the imagination was off and running. Or, we thought of kings and queens (inside), and immediately the people walking up the street (outside) became part of the royal court (BOTH sides). 

Adulthood has woven a veil that hangs between the Child-heart and the world. The world outside has become the adult's reality, bound in time. The free-flowing exchange from inside to outside, outside to inside, has been interrupted and insulated by the unconscionable bastard we insist on being in linear time.

  Just as a stopped-up kitchen sink needs to flow again, it is necessary for us to regain to flow—outside/inside, inside/outside—moving freely again. Examining one's own thoughts is the necessary first step—and make no mistake, it is necessary. The Child thinks differently than the old man, as you are feeling already while the Child comes alive in your experience. Of course, writing is not the only way to examine one's thoughts (and thinking), but it is the most immediate way to do it by oneself.

  In human history, the “breakthroughs” to greater dimensions have inevitably occurred with writing playing a major part in the process—from the ancient forest wanderers to these final days of this civilizations, as physicists sit pondering their equations. The historic Jesus may have written only in the sand, but who can dispute he caused much to be written? So, we do this writing for ourself alone—without an intermediary between ourself and God. Who stands between the thinking and the thought but our Self? In the end, all the words being spoken and written in the name of Truth are as nothing compared to our OWN experienced interface with Reality—inside and outside.

  The instant a word of our own is written on the paper before us, our tangible scene has been altered—moved toward darkness or light, for better or worse, by that written (and spoken) word. If we keep the flow passing between the heart and the fingers that touch the world, the old bastard's barrier becomes less opaque and our experience in the world starts improving. As the Child of us shows us our birthright atop Da Shan (and we're quickly on our way the moment we take pen in hand), the climbing adult diminishes, the Child increases in consciousness, more and more—until, atop the mighty mountain of Kwangse, naught remains but the True Identity, the Child I am. 


  Despite all you have heard elsewhere, there is no way “There” short of finding and living the Child that IS there and everywhere. There are no shortcuts. No church can take us there. No doctrine can do it for us. We may lay metaphysical claim to our heritage until the jade eggs of Da Shan hatch, but we don't receive that heritage until we BECOME the Child in conscious, living action. 

Intellectualism has its place, but it doesn't take us home. The Child's conscious “return” to the peak of the mountain is accomplished in living fact before one gets off the temporal world's wheel of trials, tribulations, beginnings and endings, time and rebirth.

The Subjective Comforter






48
*****
THE SUBJECTIVE COMFORTER AND THE HISTORIC JESUS

People who study the Truth via subjectivism or metaphysics tend to think of Christ as God, as Truth, but not necessarily as man—especially physical man. Stressing the Christ rather than the man, the metaphysician speaks of Christ but seldom of “Jesus.” Metaphysics carried to its absolute extreme, having dismissed the mortal man, must dismiss all mortality or men—so it sublimates history and must, in consequence, think of the Biblical or historic Jesus (and all events in time) as illusion or myth. This is not peculiar to the West alone. One finds the same thing in Eastern philosophy. Let me state quickly that neither the Christ nor Jesus is a myth.

When first “the mountain” becomes “not a mountain,” (our move from objectivism to the discovery of metaphysics) for a time the concept of a mortal man goes out of the Christ for most earnest metaphysicians. Well then, how does one at this level of things, before he has moved beyond metaphysics, describe the historic Jesus of Nazareth? When one of the good, old-timey fundamentalist churchmen collars him, how does the metaphysician respond? Not very well, clearly, or there would have been a greater interest in subjective studies. A good statement that can withstand the onslaught of bickering theology needs to be made—but to do that is tantamount to making a rock fall up. 

Here is that question, recently put to me for ten thousandth time: “What is the significance or relationship of Jesus Christ to me, as this Awareness I am?”

Let me try to answer that question to the satisfaction of a thinker. TRUTH is applicable at all levels of human understanding, but the metaphysician has never been able to give a satisfactory answer to the fundamentalist churchman. Not just because the churchman hasn't come to accept subjectivism yet, but because subjectivism can't make the whole statement of Truth. However, the Child of us CAN.

In reply to the question above, I must answer from the metaphysical, subjective, middle position so it will remain subjectively correct, but still be understood objectively by one who hasn't caught the subjective idea yet. I begin a full answer: I can speak only for myself, Subjectively, people and history unfold within my self-awareness. I have no awareness of Moses, Abraham, Jesus, Genghis Khan, Dolly Parton or anyone else OUTSIDE this conscious/subconscious awareness that writes and reads these words. I take myself to be this Awareness within which all bodies appear, including this one that plunks at the keyboard, as well as the one who asks this one a question about Jesus. Everyone, including the one who reads these words, is within myself/yourself-as-Awareness. This is self-evidently and undeniably true for each of us, even for the theologian who dismisses it as “silly solipsism.” His dismissal doesn't make it untrue. 

Identified as Awareness, I look “outside” and see trees, flowers, people and history in the making—all MYSELF-AS-AWARENESS going on in an unending “now.” I look out and see evidences of the past(history) and the possibilities for the future. I look out and read history books and bibles. I look out and see attracting, compelling, unifying things and ideas which are all within this Self-awareness. I look out and, despite all the teeth-clenching metaphysical absoluteness I am capable of, I still see (“seem” to see) distracting, repelling, dividing and destructive things, all within Awareness. Wheat and tares.

The wheat and tares “outside” myself have an equivalent “inside.” The tree and the warm glow of the setting sun evoke a sense of beauty. The unifying themes evoke a sense of harmony and joy. The distracting and divisive scenes evoke discomfort, distrust, dis-ease, and so on. The obverse of this is true as well. I feel a sense of peace within and look outside and see evidences of that peace as happy and harmonious things I might not have been aware of otherwise. (Part of the Mystery is the Christly admonition to “make the inside and the outside into a single one.”)

Let us examine this solipsistic fact for a moment. The first thing I see when I look “outside” is this body-image at the typewriter, an image more sensitive to me than all the other images—from this objective point of view. Stick a pin in this image and I yell. Stick a pin in that image and I may yell, but I don't always feel the pain. “My” view seems to be limited to the purview of this first image whose name is William and who sits here at the typewriter. But is isn't. After these many years of subjective living, I have learned that Awareness isn't limited at all, but can and should perceive from many viewpoints simultaneously, including some views little understood by the more distant images I see within myself when I look “out”—and especially not understood by my religious selfhood, nor even by my metaphysician friends who should understand. For that matter, Awareness sees things undreampt by men. 

The belief which “the world” proclaims and the beliefs (viewpoints) I hear spoken “out there” in the people-world are written and spoken from the position that IDENTITY is that first thing I see when I look into the mirror. That body-image which is so sensitive, the world says, is our (my) identity. This form and shape that sits here writing and answering your question is said to be the identity I am—an identity not unlike the form of the man who walked the hills of Galilee. But clearly (to me), the body-image is not my identity. Rather, the Awareness that “looks out” and looks in, “thinks out” from that body, is the Identity I am. The Awareness within which all the bodies and trees and books and artifacts appear is Identity, as nearly as I can establish at the metaphysical level. My God, if I'm naught but the body, I am a mere bucket of blood and a sack of tremulous pumps. If I am that only, I am what my mother and father made. If I am LIFE, I am what God made. 

Therefore, this Awareness is the “subjective” Identity I am and think of myself AS. From this perspective, all tangibility, all things, thoughts, ideas, books, historic figures and all history itself are WITHIN the Awareness I am—and this Awareness embraces every form of every thing. Clearly, Moses spoke of this identity as having dominion over every creeping thing that creepth upon the earth. He also indicated that we lost sight of it very quickly in the scheme of things. 

Well now, subjectively (metaphysically), some of the things I look at are more meaningful to me at one time or another. When it seems this first image within awareness, the William body, is hungry, food is a sight to enjoy. When I look at a unifying idea within the world of myself, I feel more satisfaction than when looking at or listening to a destructive idea, a dividing idea, or one that creates doubt and confusion in myself and in the world. 

“But what about JESUS, for Christ's sake?” my questioner thunders.
He is the most unifying Idea I have, my friend, but keep your shirt on. I am answering your question reasonably, logically, step by step, leaving nothing out, which is the way the Answer comes to us. O.K.? Your question will be answered if you will be patient.

“William Samuel, I tell you that Jesus is the blood of the Lamb! Jesus saves! Jesus is the way! Praise Jesus, Hallelujah!”

Thank you for such love, my friend. Now let me answer that part of your question about the relationship of Jesus Christ and “me as Awareness.” I was saying that identified as Awareness, all my knowledge of anything and everything is WITHIN Awareness—including the knowledge of Jesus Christ. It is exactly the same for you. All the bibles of the world are knowledge that comes to us by way of Awareness. I have no consciousness of the avatars, Jesus mighty among them, except as they come to ME here, WITHIN and AS this AWARENESS. Would you agree with this? 

“I'm lost.”

It seems so.

“If I'm lost, why am I trying to save you?

You are not lost really, my friend, and neither am I. Let's get back to the subjective views of Awareness. About Jesus Christ specifically, because this will answer questions for subjectivists who need to know as well. They especially need to get their metaphysics straight so they can get on with the rest of the Work given them to do. 

Suppose I look outside that window of myself and suddenly, unexpectedly, see a special butterfly—a big, beautiful, flashing sparkle of ethereal light darting through the sky. I am delighted and thrilled. Something in me comes alive. I would like to know more about butterflies, and about THAT butterfly especially. 

What do I do? If that spectacular butterfly passes out of my sight and goes into history, I can still turn within myself, to my expert friends, libraries and books. I find a book on butterflies and learn more than I ever  believed possible because such books are filled with information, are they not? (Incidentally, those books are an external confirmation of the Wisdom you and I already are, internally. We may not know that consciously yet, but that is partly what the human experience is about.)

One day I find a photograph of my special butterfly on page 1212. I get right down to a knowledge of everything about that special bug, and I'm so fascinated and excited, I pack my bags and make the necessary pilgrimage to Central America to the butterbug's winter home. I visit with hundreds of those particular butterflies to learn about them first hand, eyeball to eyeball.

Now, my friend. Listen gently. The holy books of the world have come to me just like that special butterfly. I have gone to the experts and authorities and libraries of the world within myself to examine them further. The Bible in particular has flashed and flown through my experience countless hundreds of times—and I tell you, it is surely among the special flashing lights of my world. INSIDE that book, the story of the historic Christ, the “Son of God,” is, among all the stories within myself, the most influential record within this Awareness. How so? Because Something Wonderful within me stirs and sings when I even think of that man's statements and parables.

So, to finally answer your questions right down to a bug's whisker, my friend, I have examined the words of many men within my holy books, but the words of Jesus and the words of LaoTse are head and shoulders above all other words within myself except for my own. How so? Because those words of Jesus, subjectively understood, told me what to do with this first image, this body that talks to that body and they told me how to live my subjective view in an 
objective and apparently divided world of conflicting stories, ideas and people.

And why are my own words important to me? Because here in this world of images, they reflect what I believe. My own beliefs influence my words, and my words bring results in my own subjective arena, here and now. Whose words put those shoes on your feet? The words in the Bible or the words that came out of your own mouth? Whose words put you into your present church?

“But Jesus came to save the entire world, Mr. Samuel. In Jesus there is salvation. Have you accepted Jesus as your Lord and Savior?”

You aren't listening, are you, my new friend? Much more than acceptance, I have become ONE with the words from the Christ's mouth. I have become ONE with THAT One. Reading and rereading his words, I have come to learn the mystery of those words and stand as one with them. I have drunk those words and eaten them and they have become me. The one who uttered them in human history came to confirm this Identity I Am and you are, and the two of us have become one Identity.

Furthermore, as the inner meanings of those words have come alive within “me”—this form you are looking at—my entire subjective world is being lifted up, even as I am lifted up in the honest and faithful understanding of His words. As I find God's grace via the words of the Christ—and all other ways the light of Spirit comes—my world finds it too, just as you found me to come to and ask your questions. As I am saved from the former identification, all mankind within myself can be (is) saved from that mistaken sense of things as well. As I surrender the deadly deception, I come alive as the Christ-light for my own subjectivity, my entire world! And this is exactly what the Christ of the Bible told me to do, isn't it? I am doing those things with all the power and authority God has given Me.

At this point, I looked at the man who had come to question me and he was sleeping softly. His wife looked at me strangely, shook her head almost imperceptibly, first one way, then another, as if she were thinking yes, then no, then yes again. She wanted to say something, but didn't or couldn't. Suddenly she burst into tears and threw here arms around me saying “Thank you! Thank you!” Her husband awoke looking most bewildered.

Sometimes I look out and see those images of myself hearing what I'm trying to say. Sometimes they seem to hear and understand. Oftentimes, it is as if I were talking to a rock wall or a mud fence, but the one of myself who hears, makes plain the one who doesn't. And the one who doesn't, tells me I am to say it better and more clearly still, when I can, when I can, when, with God's grand Grace, I can. In ten thousand years the world hasn't understood the subjectivist yet. 

If the world knew how completely the “transfiguration” has taken place here-as-AWARENESS, the world would BE on the door steps of the subjective idea, butterfly book in hand, asking questions, prepared to hear the deep things of Selfhood. The Tree of Life is soon to blossom and seed. There isn't much time, of temporal time, remaining. Life is eternal; the mortal tree of life is not eternal. “Ask Me while you can,” says the Christ Light of Love.

THE METAPHYSICIAN ASKS A QUESTION

Dear Sam,

You have answered the man's question logically. I understand how I should think of the historic Christ from the “is NOT a mountain” position. Now, will you tell me how to think of Him from the “It is a mountain AGAIN” position?

Dear friend, 

The purpose of this book is to help you answer that question for yourself. No book alone will answer you fully. The answer, surrounded by the wilderness of time and space, lies within you and your own interface with God. “Thine own right hand can save thee.” Perhaps you should know it took thirty years to write the paper you have just read. It will not take you so long to answer your question for yourself. Just don't throw the historic Christ of the Bible out the window as science and some versions of metaphysics try to do.

The Child Messiah Arrives






THE CHILD MESSIAH ARRIVES AS WE GET SUBJECTIVISM STRAIGHT

When the subjective idea is clearly in hand, one is able to complete the interface with the world. During the time the subjective idea is developing, one is curled up within himself like a caterpillar in a cocoon. He is living in the world, working in the world, but growing spiritually by leaps and bounds. That is understood. We can't complain about the stasis apparent in the religious, scientific and metaphysical community provided we finally perceive movement and progress on the parts of those who are getting their subjectivism straight.

I submit that, with subjectivism clearly understood, one perceives for himself how to live it effectively on the objective scene of things. He lives his subjectivism objectively and remarkably in the world and becomes as  light that cannot be hidden.

Then the third step arrives. “The Mountain becomes a Mountain again.” After a time of balanced living, the ongoing of us are brought to make the surrender of everything. This is part of “the time of trouble” the Messianic Avatar carefully announced.

The final Secrets are to be revealed to those few who are willing to surrender even their vaunted religion and subjectivism to know GOD, Truth, aright. This is the final surrender—and may very well already have historic as well as subjective confirmation as Judaism's choice to deny the Messiahship of the historic Jesus. History records that Christianity indeed views the tangible (and intangible) Jesus as the living son of God. Perhaps Judaism, by divine Plan, rejected the Son, opting for the Father FIRST and ONLY. There is an objective reward for such a metaphysical position when the final trump is sounded—perhaps as the first group who will accept MESSIAH within the heart of themselves to be the Original Christ-Child of God, the New Covenant, for whom the prophet Jesus represents the historic evidence in confirmation—the Man who made that surrender.

Certainly Isaiah foresaw the Child of God. Certainly Jesus identified as that Child. It fits metaphysically that the discovery of the Child within will very well represent Messiah to Judaism when the Child within Everyman is found—and may even be found by the Christian community as well. But more likely, Jewish and Christian churchdom will fear for their dogmas, buildings and numbers—especially worry about deceivers—and refuse to listen to the Child Itself right in the heart of them. If so, the ministry of Jesus would be confirmed positively and subjectively. The prophets, including the confirming Christ of history, could be right once more. The Child IS the savior. A child shall lead a remnant of “children” to New Jerusalem, a new dimension. 

I state as a fact of my own Self-discovery, I walked the objective ground first; I walked the subjective discovery second; I lived my subjectivism in the world, discovering the remarkable Balance about which I've written. Then I was pushed into total willingness of self-surrender. That surrender wasn't finished until I was willing to give up my most cherished self-beliefs, even the teaching of Jesus seen to be subservient before Godhead. Then I was given the keys to the Kingdom, the Secrets of the Child and the Equation with which I proved the truth of the Self-revelations and the teachings of the historic Christ.

The point here (and I repeat it endlessly) is I was given nothing of the Child and the Child's Equation until I was proven willing, after many years, to surrender even my joys of subjectivism—everything—even God, in obeisance to Godhead. What I have been shown since has been lived and proven, every step of the Equation confirmed—attesting the primacy of GOD first, not the messenger of God, even when that messenger is the Son of God Himself. I was finally made WILLING to surrender the Christ Idea for God, perhaps a little like Abraham—and then the Secret was given to me so that rather than lose that Christly Ideal I could become it. 

Since those days, all but a few things I was shown have come to pass—and what has not happened, will, if the pattern remains as certain at its conclusion as it has been thus far in time. I see no reason it won't.

In the world, resistance to Truth is individual, then group wide, then nation wide, then worldwide. Objectively, the groups will be shattered and shaken as the individual has been—then the nation, then the world.

One does not have to be shaken if he moves ON with God—but he will be destroyed if he doesn't.

These words do not sound very metaphysical, but why do they have to? The Truth isn't bound to meet human expectations. God is still a mystery to me, but the Self-I-am, made in the perfect IMAGE of God, grows clearer every day—and those who heed these words will find what I have found. We become like the fountains we drink from. Religionists and metaphysicians drink from many fountains and have become a dilute nothing. There is a single Fountainhead, God, for whom Jesus speaks. The words of Jesus (in Thomas and elsewhere) are true and faithful. Whatever I have had to say can be found in those words or in the words of LaoTse who addressed nature as himself. The man Jesus drank from the Prophet's fountain and I drink from His. Jesus came as the historic, linear confirmation of the Child within—the first willing to BE that Child of God. I announce the Same Child of God, present in the hearts of Everyman. I hail Godhead first; I hail God's Original Image—the Child within the Elect of God.

Space, Time And Progression






Excerpt From 
"The Child Within Us Lives! A Synthesis of Science, Religion and Metaphysics"  
By William Samuel 


SPACE, TIME AND PROGRESSION

Time and space aren't “real”—not as inexorable and immutable as they seem to be—but they are essential in this human scheme of things. Rather than deny their existence, metaphysicians would do well to come to comprehend why they are not what they seem to be and what role they play in the human experience.
When we take subjectivism into account, time and space remain the means by which we are able to comprehend the Reality that lies specifically behind them. “Point” isn't necessarily “real” from the standpoint of sphere, but it is a specific step in the mathematical progression in the knowledge of sphere. One goes from point to line and from line to plane, and finally, from plane to sphere. Sphere is “real” in the absolute sense, and the point, line and plane are three lesser dimensions within it, building it, so to speak. There is a natural hierarchy here—and a cosmology. Even though our comprehension of sphere is built point to line to plane, sphere precedes them in time and space. Our steps of comprehension are “after the fact.” Sphere “knows” all about point, line and plane, whether point, line and plane know themselves or not—and none of them, neither separately nor together, can know the whole of sphere. Sphere knows sphere.

Time is one of the steps in the comprehension of its opposite, timelessness. Space is a step toward the comprehension of its quantum state, Infinity.

The logician and philosopher—occasionally the subjectivist—want to know why the fall into time and space in the first place. “If they aren't real, why do they seem to exist?” That question asked of philosophy, religion and metaphysics is tantamount to the ancient wonderment about the origin of evil, if God is good and God made everything perfect. Religion, philosophy and metaphysics have never answered that question to the satisfaction of logicians. The absolute metaphysical pronouncement that evil doesn't exist outside the belief it does still doesn't answer the more basic question of who the believer is who entertains, or seems to entertain, pictures of presidents getting cancer and terrorists taking hostages. Again, the absolute position of metaphysics—“None of this is even going on. It's all a lie and I don't have to explain a lie!”—doesn't say anything that helps anything. Similarly, the claim that “death is an illusion” has done nothing to lessen the appearances of that illusion among those who call it illusory. The proper logician wants and deserves a better answer. Theology demands one but can't make it. Metaphysics cannot evade or double-talk forever without a real answer. Philosophy can't dismiss the matter forever either. Science comes closer to answers than religion, metaphysics or philosophy, but science presents the intolerable position that refuses to take spirit, ineffability, Deity, into account. 

Like Zen Buddhists, particle physicists and mathematicians insist they can't get beyond the limits of the senses to speculate about the existence or non-existence of Godhead, so they refuse to talk about it. But science has reached the point at which it can no longer evade the issue of Ineffability. Scientists are getting there ahead of the metaphysicians, ministers and priests, surprising to say. One wonders if they will be as successful at hiding quantum mechanics as the theologians in hiding subjectivism, dismissing it as “silly solipsism.”

Now, after all these years, I find myself able to give an answer that completely satisfies the logicians and pragmatists about the reasons for the appearance of evil in the world—provided they take the (unreal) time and make the necessary subjective proofs for themselves. I know the answer is satisfactory because I was long the pragmatic logician seeking the answer, content with nothing less than precise logic itself. What I find so interesting now is something never expected originally. Now that I have the Answer—able to articulate it sufficiently, such that certain states of mind can understand and agree with the same marvel of marvels—the people in the world who least want to hear the answers are those who first propounded the question so vigorously. It is a paradox of paradoxes to which many masters have alluded. Jesus said: “...now you do not ask.” The old nature of us so hates to display its ignorance.

The physical scientist are interested, when I can catch their ear. People are interested. But ministers, priests, rabbis and “religious” metaphysicians seem to have no interest whatever, so those who rely on them for guidance have no interest either. Those who spend their time in study, straining to catch a bit of light here or a glimpse there, are too busy to examine the quantum GIFT that is new on the Scene.
