More from “Art Of Living”

This is an excerpt from Frank’s book, Art of Living, 1974:

Frank, we have created a rather intellectual picture of what is going on in that physical world. We used the brain as a symbol to represent the majority of spirits existing in that material world. They are slowly waking up and discovering that something is wrong, discovering that their own negativity is physically manifested around them. They are trying, or starting to try, to correct some of the material signs of their negativity by channeling their intellectual energy into scientific, political or educational levels of human life. Such attempts, without correcting the loneliness and isolation which the spirits there feel, will probably solve problems such as unbreathable air and undrinkable water. But such attempts will only add to the negativity if these attempts do not come from a conscious movement to bring people together, not on an abstract and idealistic level, but on a very personal and human level.

The majority of the spirits there, the brain of that physical world, do not have any way to consciously cope with the vague feeling that has enveloped that world. They can only feel frustration and try to release it during the sexual experience; they can only feel restless and try to release this through emotional outbursts; they can only feel lonely, isolated, and unfulfilled and try to rationally explain this feeling away by pinning this feeling to a physical object or an abstract concept, and then try to intellectually solve the problem. But no matter on what level they try to deal with the vague feeling, in the end they still feel empty, as if they have missed something beautiful.

They lack the pure vision of spiritual love, to see their simple need to be personally close to one another. But in that world, there are a growing number of spirits who do see and feel through this vision of spiritual love, although most of these are not living in the progression of spiritual love yet. These spirits, these Fishermen of Men, are the mind of that world who can pull that world into a collective level of love by living their vision out within that world, living their vision with the other Fishermen of Men. Unfortunately, these spirits are always being tempted to forget their vision, to forget their role as Fishermen, because living their vision with one another is very hard without glamorous results which they can show that world. They are tempted to disbelieve that the world will feel, but probably will not consciously see, what these Fishermen have created together. They are tempted to believe that it is impossible for the invisible net of deep human love released by the inter-relationships among the fishermen to pull the rest of the world into real closeness like fish in a net. Because of this worry, some of these sensitive spirits withdraw from the human world into what they think is themselves, into an abstract spirituality. They isolate themselves because they are bitter that the world does not, cannot, see their vision yet. Others try to ignore what they see and feel in order to live “normal lives.” However, they can never completely forget their vision and must always carry with them the knowledge that they are living second best lives, that they are not living their highest vision. Still others, desiring to have proof in the standards of that material world that they are really doing something, really contributing, try to channel the levels of politics, science, education and art. But by placing importance in the proofs that these material levels of living offer and in the things that are created within these levels, these spirits are just making that world a little harder. The only way to use these levels to being the soft, human vision into that world is by not placing importance on these levels and what can be created within these levels, but placing the importance on human relationships and create from those human relationships…

From “Art of Living”

This is an excerpt from Frank’s book, Art of Living, 1974:

Frank, it should be very clear to any person there who is aware of the world around him, even though his awareness may be purely on the physical level, that the material world has reached the critical point in its life. The world of materiality has become physically ill, just as an individual spirit in a physical body commonly gets ill when he has reached a turning point, a decision of his inner existence, a karmic requirement facing him. He rarely knows consciously the inner illness. He just knows he is hurting physically and takes steps to cure himself. While this is happening, hopefully just by living in a slower state, he will, most of the time, unconsciously make the decision, select the next path to follow, face up to what he must do. All of this goes on usually without ever coming to the attention of the physical brain because this inner issue is dealt with in the mind.

To understand more clearly what is happening within that material world, you should see that world as an individual spirit within a physical body. This person would be about to enter the Love Progression, but has a great deal of trouble balancing the four sides of his lower self, and cannot relate to people around him because of his inability to communicate in the acceptable manner. At first he is unaware that anything is the matter. But now he has an uneasy feeling, a feeling that he cannot rationally label as any concrete thing or a particular event. It is just a vague feeling felt by his mind. Then he discovers sores on his body, and also difficulty breathing. At first, he isn’t concerned and waits for a while to see if the sores will go away; moreover, he dismisses his shallower breathing to his imagination (by this he is really blaming his mind). His mind at this time is tempted either to be absorbed into the physical brain or to isolate itself to think and feel by itself in an abstract state using its intellectuality to do this. Both roads, being absorbed and being isolated, are used to escape feeling the vague uneasiness. Both roads are an escape from the mind’s leading and translating role.

The brain finally recognizes that the body is ill and takes steps to cure the illness; meanwhile, the brain, lacking any rational reason for the vague uneasiness, sees the physical illness as the root of the vague feeling.

This is the condition that the material world is in now.
