This morning I was working on an address to be delivered in Los Angeles on our Master’s birthday about him. As I was in the middle of preparing it I was highly inspired and “on a roll” as it were.
I could have continued for at least another hour with inspiration flowing but had to stop in order to get ready for and lead Operation Prayer Power.
This I realised is an example of what Mars Sector 6 referred to in the Fourth Freedom as the transmutation of mental energies upon the plane of inspiration, called high intuition, at which stage meditation is possible.
I had to control the inspirational flow and detach from it because high intuition determined that I perform a more important act at that time.
Many a creative artist, writer, composer, etc., even including geniuses, might have regarded it as artistic sacrilege to stop a flow of inspiration for any other purpose because they had no higher purpose than their art.
That’s something I can relate to.
In the Fourth Freedom, Mars Sector 6 attributes two main keys to bring about this transmutation: strict control and the manipulation of one’s karma through service.
This is an example of a transmutation of mental energies through service in my small example when Operation Prayer Power was a more urgent responsibility than the preparation of this address. But I also realised that as kundalini rises to a particular chakra – let’s say, for example, the heart chakra – great inspiration is experienced through the mental energies in that centre.
High intuition sooner or later will guide you to raise the kundalini higher into the throat centre. To do this requires detachment from those mental energies and, if you’re able, the closing of that centre so that you can lodge kundalini –this could be, certainly in my case, just a partial rise of kundalini of course – in the throat centre.
And through that rise you’ve transmuted mental energies upon the plane of inspiration – in this case connected to the heart centre – under the guidance of high intuition.
This would be a case of strict control.
Maybe that’s why Dr. King says that an adept will be a genius, but a genius in several things. Unlike the artistic genius whose inspiration is usually confined to one discipline such as painting, writing or composing, or sometimes even a single aspect of that discipline such as piano music, or short stories.
An adept, you might say, because of service and strict control is a jack of all trades of genius or at least some of them.
On February 7th, 2023, today, I want to add that when you raise the kundalini to enter meditation you could be gaining very positive, absolutely beautiful psychic impressions and inspirations and you have to detach even from those. You’re not just detaching from lower things, you might be detaching from wonderful revelations, prophecies, great realisations and insights of various kinds. Even those have to go – at that point they have to go. Because they’re limitations when it comes to going beyond mind, which is the journey – certainly the conscious and sub-conscious mind anyway – that you’re on into pure super-consciousness. Ultimately, of course we are told in cosmic consciousness, which is way beyond my remit here, we’re going beyond mind.
