804 Energies Clergy and Religions

Now let’s look at the clergy. It’s very interesting, let’s look at the nuns first of all. Nuns have a devotion. They choose that life for a variety of reasons. A lot of them is where they’ve had bad experiences, and they want to escape from those experiences, and feel that they’re doing the right thing. It’s a bit like purgatory in reverse. They get sort of, you know, abused in a bad way, and they want to escape by going to a nunnery, where all they have to do is serve God and ask for forgiveness and so on. A lot of it depends on their religion, how they have been brought up and so on. Others are brought up a slightly different way, and they’re devoted to worshipping God, Jesus and so on, and their ultimate goal is to become a nun, and serve, and to get rid of Earthly goods.

 

S: They dedicate themselves.

 

Spirit: Yeah, they dedicate themselves, but they don’t take any possessions with them, and they’re not open to any form of sin. They’re more protected from any form of sin. That’s why they do that. They believe that to be the higher good, the way to go, to just devote themselves to doing that particular thing.. And it’s a big safety thing for them, because they don’t have to venture out in the world anymore. They’re in a nunnery, where they’re looked after, and everything is disciplined, and they don’t have to think for themselves anymore, so they devote themselves to what they believe and worship.

 

Individual clergy. A similar thing would apply to monks. Where you get individual priests and rabbis and so on. There’s a huge variety here. Part of it is devotion, part of it is what they truly believe. There’s also a certain amount of escapism by going into clergy. There’s a certain amount of wanting to do good by serving the people, by becoming the local vicar and helping people. For people who like to help people, this is ideal for them. So they can go to their church, they can have their own little community, and they can look after their community, and they genuinely want to look after their community and make it better. And they do this by believing more and more in the religion that they’ve chosen. So when they decide to do this, they will go to a school of that particular religion, and be indoctrinated more and more into how that religion can be beneficial to help the community. So they go into the community with the best intentions, to look after the community, help them and so on. They automatically accept the religion, they don’t question it, and as they learn more and more, they simply interpret it their own way, to do good. They will come across small things which they will question, and they won’t feel it’s quite right, they sort of leave those on one side. It’s a bit like eating a roast chicken, you leave the bones on one side, the same sort of principle, but they still enjoy the whole thing.

 

Where you get to the individuals that get promoted, if you like, archbishops for example, and deacons, and those who hold high office, a lot of the time ego takes over there, and they don’t question their religion at all. They are afraid to question it in case they sort of lose their positions, they don’t want to rock the boat. And they suffer the most when they come across to our side, because they realise what they have done, and how badly they did it in the end.

 

S: And if something felt amiss, they didn’t do anything about it, because of ego.

 

Spirit: Correct, yes. And the problem there is that they realise that they have been teaching a community for 50 years, and they have been teaching them the wrong way for 50 years, and that of course spreads to their families, their next generation, and so on, so it actually does a lot of damage. In general though, they are believers. They truly believe their religion and so on.

 

Now I’m looking at the Dalai Lama and the Tibetan monks and so on. In their particular area where they live, Tibet, it’s an area dedicated to their religion, to the Buddhist religion. And Buddhism is more of a way of life. It’s not so much understanding what happens when you cross over the other side, evolving and so on. It’s a matter of living for the moment, and enjoying the life that has been created for them. They are not too concerned about the afterlife. They have various theories about the afterlife, but they believe there are structures of heavens and hells, which they can get to, which of course we know are wrong, but in their particular religion, when they cross over, some of them will want to see those particular structures. Others can be converted back to a different way of thinking. But we need for that religion to continue, the belief to continue, there have to be more souls coming down to continue that religion. But there are very few which are reincarnated.  Now, the way they choose the next Dalai Lama, when one dies, is the closest officials to the Dalai Lama will travel around the country. They’ll take with them the Dalai Lama’s original toys he had when he was a baby, and a few of the things he had as he grew up and so on. And they will travel around, and when they find a child that recognizes those toys, then they know that that is the next reincarnated Dalai Lama. Now, it’s not the same Dalai Lama. It’s somebody who is recreated to keep that religion going, with their beliefs. So you, for instance, could suddenly pick up all the information you wanted, and then you would choose, volunteer to be that particular re-incarnation, if that was the track that you were on. Overall in Tibet, it’s a very nice area. There are a lot of hardships there, and people are used to hardships, but they are very likable, friendly people. They very much keep to themselves, but they’ve got a very strong belief in what they do. They’re an awful lot more honest and straightforward than the majority of people on this planet.

 

S: Yeah.
