The following lectures are from Wandbua, the historian. Frank channeled these lectures at the same time that he was channeling Reed and the others in circa 1972. From the book The Art of Living by Frank Moore.
Hello, Frank. I have not been able to come through for a long time now. First because of the emotional chaos which has been around you, and then because your physical weakness caused by this chaos. This physical weakness, which is around you still but is not a part of you nor is caused by you, is the reason why our talk this time will be rather short.
Before the Sons of Man entered the bodies of the creatures who dwelled mainly in the Island’s western woods, these creatures were animals of prey. They lived and hunted in packs of ten, hunting deer and goats. The packs existed because of necessity, not because of group love or loyalty. Alone a creature couldn’t move fast enough to bring down any game except sick or lame animals. But a pack could maneuver a herd into an ambush. The members of a pack only communicated with one another in a hunt. They used a system or a code of noises which cannot be called a language by any means. By these noises and body gestures they could move as one being. But outside of the hunt, these noises were not used nor was there unity. Each creature had to be forever on his guard against the rest of the pack. Every day, there were fights within a pack over food, mates and sleeping grounds. But whenever the pack was attacked from the outside by hungry wild animals such as bears and wolves, or by another pack, the pack quickly became one to defend itself.
This was the life of survival, the first stage where no awareness was necessary. Every action was automatic in a sense, governed by instincts. This was the world of mechanical reaction to outside dangers. For a being with self awareness, with a spirit, such as one of the nonhuman villagers, such a life would be unbearable because it was based on fear. These creatures, however, lived this life without being aware of fear, even though they were totally controlled and shaped by fear. Understand, Frank, that fear in the state of unawareness is not negative, but as soon as awareness is born into either a world or an individual being, all fears become negative limitations which must be broken through before freedom can be reached.
