I just got finished reading the book The Spiritual Teacher Written by Spirits of the Sixth Circle. And this book was channeled through the medium's hand as a written work. That was back in 1852. This Ramtha is channeled by J.Z. Knight, a female, who first appeared to her in 1977. So the spirits have come a long way 'babe.' Hahaha. Anyway. I like Ramtha. He knows what he's talking about. Check out this video:
Now here is an excerpt from The Spiritual Teacher and after that, an excerpt from Wikipedia; J.Z. Knight.
The spirits have now arrived at a point where it will be necessary to elucidate the nature of the birth which here is mentioned. They desire to speak of the beautiful and interesting process by which the spirit becomes separated from its material sturcture and is born into the celestial world.
It has been stated the elements of the spirit are ordinarily diffused through the entire organization of the body and are not in a state of perfect concentration so as to be withdrawn from it as a perfect and undivided form.
Therefore when the vitality which forms the connecting link between the spirit and its frame-work is destroyed, the elements of which the spiritual body is composed are attracted from the surface and extremities of the organism, to the brain, from which they are eliminated in the form of an emanation or atmosphere which constitutes the substance of the spirit.
When this emanation or atmosphere has become completely thrown off from the perishing body, then this gradually forms into a definite and perfect figure through the attractive power of the most interior essence which has been denominated the germ of the Soul. After this process has been completed and the spiritual form has been rendered perfect and indestructible by the combination of kindred elements, then the spirit is gradually separated from the structure to which it was previously attracted and is borne away by the aid of congenial companions to the position in the spiritual world which it naturally and appropriately occupies.
Thus the death of the body is the beautiful birth of the spirit and the spirits have presented this explanation simply that the perfection of the existing Universe and the laws which govern it may be made clearly manifest.
Words of Wisdom
Be guided in every action more by the inward voice than by any external direction insasmuch as the external is not the real and the internal is the true reality.
Rely not upon any external authority, though it should be presented in the name of the most advanced spirits, for authority forbids the proper exercise of reason, and that which is received without reason can make no appeal to the spirit.
Place reliance not so much on what spirits SAY as on what they BE, for what they say will be but a feeble and imperfect expression of indwelling truth, but what they be involves the inherent qualities of the soul which no change or circumstances can destroy.
Receive only that as truth which can be comprehended by the reason and which has an application to the inner consciousness of the soul, for that which is above or beyond reason cannot be inwardly digested, and that which does not appeal to the consciousness of the soul can do the soul no good.
Finally, let the standards of thought and action which mortals have erected be made subservient to the divine and immutable (meaning BE YOURSELF) standard which is presented in Nature and the developed soul.
Wikipedia For J.Z. Knight, Ramtha Channel.
The four cornerstones of Ramtha's philosophy are:
1. The statement 'You are god.'
2. The directive to make known the unknown.
3. The concept that consciousness and energy create the nature of reality.
4. The challenge to conquer yourself.
All of the above are similar to the list of common messages stated by claimed channeled entities written by Russell Chandler:
The basic messages of the channeled entities exhibit a striking commonality:
- Death is unreal.
- All is One in the synergy of Deity.
- We are Divine Beings but have chosen to exist as physical humans.
- In this life there are no victims, only opportunities.
- We can control reality through the powers of Universal Mind.
Ramtha (the name is claimed to be derived from Ram and to mean "the God" in Ramtha's language) is an entity whom Knight claims to channel. According to Knight, Ramtha was a Lemurian warrior who fought the Atlanteans over 35,000 years ago. Ramtha speaks of leading an army over 2.5 million strong for 63 years, and conquering three fourths of the known world (which was allegedly going through cataclysmic geological changes). According to Ramtha, he led the army for ten years until he was betrayed and almost killed.
Ramtha says he spent the next seven years in isolation recovering and observing nature, the seasons, his army making homes and families, and many other things. He later mastered many skills, including foresight and out-of-body experiences, until he led his army to the Indus River while in his late fifties. Ramtha taught his soldiers everything he knew for 120 days, he bid them farewell, rose into the air and in a bright flash of light he ascended before them. He made a promise to his army that he would come back to teach them everything he had learned.
The key phrase is, HE PULLED BACK AND OBSERVED in silence.
Now...go do that. Go into your own self and just observe everything. Just take a few moments out of the day all by yourself inside yourself, you don't even have to be alone, just by-your-self, and OBSERVE.
