Huna Bulletin 98
Cleaning Up the Bodies
April 1, 1953
THE NEW BOOK WILL BE READY APRIL 10th, says a letter from Kingsport Press. I will ask that a number be sent at once to me here in California so that they can be autographed before being mailed on to those of you who wish copies and prefer to have them autographed. The price is $4 post paid, with sales tax to be added in California. (352 pages, and binding uniform with the first edition of SSBM. This book, as announced in an earlier Bulletin, will be called THE SECRET SCIENCE AT WORK.)
AN AMAZING POSSIBILITY has just come into focus these last few days as I have worked to make the biometric tests of the signatures (old and new, with prayer and without) which have come in such unexpected numbers from the HRAs who have welcomed the chance to try out the possibility of mental-spiritual growth in the next few weeks – with signatures again to come in to be tested at the end of the period, about June 1st.
The AMAZING possibility of which I have just caught sight, is that it may be possible to finish up with the chain of incarnations even in THIS LIFE!
Many of you, like myself, have had a good grounding in the Theosophical beliefs borrowed from India and built on the foundation of reincarnation and karma. I must confess that, when I found that na kahuna laid so little stress on the matter of reincarnation, I was much relieved at the prospect of not having to come back again and again countless times in order to escape the dreary rounds which keep most of the people of India in a state of deep hopelessness.
In both parts of the Bible we find the matter of reincarnation touched upon lightly and, now that we know that there were na kahuna behind basic Biblical teachings (the secret part), we know why. It becomes evident that na kahuna confidently expected those who would accept the Huna teachings and use them to be able to get to “heaven” at the end of the one incarnation.
In Oahspe, where reincarnation is not taught, there is offered a theory that after death a spirit may continue its evolutionary progress toward the levels of being which must be reached if the divine plan is to be carried out. (Many HRAs believe firmly in Oahspe, so I take care to mention this angle.) In biology we learn that life began in the sea, then moved out on land, and even into the air. The human embryo passes through all the evolutionary stages from fish to man before birth, so we may be safe to say that the bodily evolution will be high enough at any time for us to be allowed to forget it and to turn our entire attention to the evolution demanded of each of the three selves in order to graduate – each self to graduate into a next higher grade of life or type of consciousness.
The old idea that we had to become entirely perfect before we could go on to heaven or to Nirvana was found to be impractical. The holy men of early Christian times went into the wilderness to conquer their appetites and become perfect. They left behind them little evidence that they accomplished anything worthwhile. In India, the same anti-social form of life was tried out with the aim of obtaining complete and utter control of both mind and body. It was hoped that by doing this one might be absorbed back into God. Of all the holy men who withdrew from life to make this effort, not one gave permanent evidence of having obtained marked growth of intellectual powers or of great wisdom which stood beyond the reach of human invention and comprehension. Jesus and Gautama spent little time in the wilderness, both returning to the busy walks of life to teach. And what did they teach? Supernal and seventh-heaven wisdom quite beyond the mental grasp of the less evolved? Not at all. They both taught two basic things.
- That a man must have will enough to give up ways of sin or ways in which others were hurt. This demanded a will strength that would not weaken or slacken. “WILL” was the first thing to develop.
- Once the will was strong enough to hold a man to his determination to live the hurtless and helpful (loving) life, the next requisite was that he perfect himself in goodness – which was nothing more nor less than freeing himself of all the tendencies to fall back into hurtful ways of thought, (including such emotional outbursts as anger, hate etc.) or of action.
OUR GREAT RECENT HUNA DISCOVERY of the mechanism which was hidden behind the foot-washing rite now allows us to see HOW the tendency to backslide into old hurtful ways can be avoided. The secret is to get rid of (1) complexes, which cause bad actions and reactions, and (2) the influence of “eating companion” spirits who stick by us as long as we “agree” with their evil ways, and respond to their obsessional urgings and live hurtfully.
THIS LEADS TO THE DAZZLING POSSIBILITY, since now we know what must be done and how to be able to do it, that we can stoutly decide to turn over the bright new leaf, give up all hurtful ways of thinking and acting, replacing them with love and loving acts so that our “will” and “character-personality” evolution may be quickly completed.
THE PROBLEM OF THE BRAIN RADIATION RATE or I.Q. has for some time bothered me. From pictures of some of the most famous modern saints of India, I have taken biometric readings, only to find that (as Dr. Brunler had earlier found) the reading was surprisingly, even shockingly low, for one so hurtless and good and powerful of will. Intellectually, they were quite ordinary men. But, in so far as their lives were concerned, if we are to believe their disciples, they held themselves with iron purpose to the good and helpful and loving life of saints. This patent fact, easily checked on the biometer, encourages me to believe that the degree of IQ or brain radiation is a part of the biological evolution and NOT a necessary part of the evolutionary growth of the conscious selves as something using the body but not part of it – something that leaves the body to return to dust but which goes on and on. If this line of reasoning is correct, we have then but to take the proper training steps, no matter what our physical brains register, and when we perfect “will” and “goodness” we will be ready to stop incarnating in the same old tiresome condition life after life. (Or, if you prefer Oahspe, to have to live on and on as a spirit after death until the lesson missed on earth is at last learned.)
What holds most of us back seems to be (1)bthe habit of living in a certain mental-emotional rut. We cling to the emotional and mental pleasures of our hates and fears and selfishnesses. Habits are rooted in the Aunihipili and shared and stimulated, perhaps, by the eating companion obsessional spirits whom we may tolerate. (2) The complex – this forcing us to react, whether or not in a certain good or bad way, when it is stirred into action.
The majority of us do not want to be good. Our ideas of “being good” are often mixed in complexed form with childhood religious training in which we struggled as youngsters to try to make ourselves be missionaries, or to do something else “good” which was not at all to our liking. There are also the pleasant habits which we hate to think of giving up (and which are often not sufficiently hurtful to the body to justify a struggle to give them up).
Like a pump which has to be primed with water before it will begin to pump up water from the well, we need to prime our pumps with all the will power we can muster and hold for a short time. Then, before we backslide, we must get clear of the complexes and eating companions. The first step is conversion; the second is baptism, and the alternate is the foot-washing rite. The use of E-Therapy is a step in the right direction and the conversion step needs to be added in front of the E-Therapy, while the auditor needs to be one who is in touch with his own Aumakua and who can send mana to it to give to the Aumakua of the one being cleared of “blockings of the path.” The Aumakua of the one being helped will then be able to use the mana to begin to break down the complexes and get rid of them. This may take a few sessions (we do not yet know) and the time taken for one person may be greater than for another. However, once the path is cleared and the eating companions find no “agreement” with them and their evil natures and so leave, the big difficulty of NOT WANTING TO BE GOOD will vanish. The will can expand to direct the Aunihipili perfectly, and the Auhane, while living the good life, will be able to give the Aunihipili enough instruction to make it ready to cease being an animal self and to graduate (in another incarnation ) to the level of the conscious mind self or Auhane. The Auhane, after death, will be ready to graduate to the Aumakua level and start its apprenticeship there, no longer having to come back to a physical body. The Aumakua, in its turn, according to Huna and all the ancient teachings, can graduate to still a higher level. Na kahuna said that the Aumakua became an Akua Aumakua, or a “more god-like” spirit of a higher level.
In the biometric readings I have been making, there is usually an imperfect will or an imperfect goodness indicated by the pendulum movements over the plate of the biometer. (See page 1 of Bulletin No. 88 for drawings and explanations of the “personality patterns” which may be used to test for the state of the will or creative goodness of intentions and acts.) I have found a case of a strange nature in which there is no “will” pattern at all, but an almost perfect “creativeness” or good pattern. I have found two or three cases in which there was an almost perfect will, and no circle pattern at all, either good or bad (circling clockwise for good, or counterclockwise for bad or lack of constructiveness). In between I find all kinds of combinations and degrees of lack which offer fascinating studies to see whether complexes are indicated.
My thought is that if we could all have a good careful biometric pattern reading, then take a second reading for the condition we are able to reach when we pray, we might have the data needed to formulate a swift and easy program of training toward growth – even growth right out of this world of woes and joys after death. (!)
One reading gave me a perfect pattern for both will and goodness, but the swings were small and weak – showing what I take to be the need for development and strengthening by exercise, as a muscle is strengthened. My criterion of measurement is the signature of new HRA, Frederick Marion, who not only has the highest brain radiation reading I have as yet measured, but who has a perfect “will” pattern as well as a perfect clockwise “good” circling pattern, and in both cases the pendulum movement is amazingly strong. This matches his personal development and, what is even more convincing, his trained abilities to use on all three levels of being. I am greatly interested in having the opportunity to follow with the biometer tests the growth of several of the HRAs who are fortunate enough to be able to study under Mr. Marion through his course. I am also fortunate in finding that Mr. Marion is eager and willing to give us a hand in problems such as I have been discussing. I have before me a letter in which he backs up strongly the Huna idea that … but let me share the letter with you:
“… the blending or valence of the three selves is most important for stepping up the proportioned (balanced) advance. The common mistake is the urge for replacement of planes and operations and higher planes at the expense of the lower planes, which does not bring desirable results. Such misconceptions are responsible for all the extremes, as we can see them around us wherever we look. The nonsmokers are just as wrong as the heavy smokers, and all the advocates of this or that are self-condemned pictures of one-sided advancements …”
THE SIOUX INDIAN MEDICINE MEN also knew the absolute necessity of growth-development on all three of the levels of consciousness – on the part of each of the three selves of the man. Mr. W. Luhnow of Boulder, Co., long a student of Indian lore, says in a letter of March 22nd that one of their medicine dances (Sioux tribe) gives this meaning: “It is better to be two men than one. It is better yet to be three men.”
Knowing what lies behind this veiled outer meaning, we can see that the knowledge of the three selves of man and of the full development of all three – in order to perfect the whole man – was spread thinly around the world and at least partly retained and put to use. Those occultists who prate of “spiritual growth” but who do nothing about the growth of “will” in the Auhane and of the human characteristics of planned “good” in the Aunihipili, miss two-thirds of the problem. One DOES seek first the kingdom of heaven (the contact with his own Aumakua), but that is to get aid in removing blockings in the path. Three-fold training comes next.
HRA JOHN A. HILLIARD, whose comments on meditation and growth were promised for the last Bulletin but not included for want of space, has much to say from his own angle of study and practical experience. Here are parts of a letter:
“now in these books the ‘Arcanum’ is only hinted at. (He has evaluated Masonic books on the Rose Cross etc. MFL) But I have done some of the ‘work’ with good results. I can assure you that the removal of the complexes or blocks in the path is part of it.
“One thing which comes first is the task of becoming aware of and acquainted with what – in Huna terms – you call the Aunihipili, Auhane and Aumakua. These are distinct and individual sentient entities but are harnessed together within one’s own subjective consciousness.
“The next, and often much longer, stage is the training of the entities in right action. This involves a removal of the complexes or bad habits, at the same time demanding care that no new complexes or habits be formed, and finally to train them to act together as a team in order to accomplish the purposes of the Aumakua member of the team – the ‘spark of God within,’ or that part of the man which is Love and Light. Better terms might be ‘tractive force’ and ‘radiant energy!
“It is a hopeless task to try to teach those who cannot learn because there stand in their way big blocks against coming to grips with reality. My own experience has taught me that the two na Aunihipili will play at philosophizing, cooking up ideas and concepts astounding in their profundity. But try to get them to do the work, and there is weeping and wailing. We must turn from speculation to application. (He explains at this point that meditation and concentration are ‘will’ developers and the material meditated upon should stress ‘good.’ He warns that as the will is developed, there is the great danger that the two na Aunihipili will use the new power for evil purposes and so defeat the entire purpose of training.) We must transmute the motives of na Aunihipili so that there is a ‘will toward God.’ When this is accomplished and the two na Aunihipili are working well together, doing good in the world, then, at a profitable time, the Light of the Aumakua breaks through to shine out in them. The man is then said to be ‘Christed’ or to have become illuminated and the wisdom of the Aumakua becomes open to him. This is the state in which the rose on the Rose Cross bursts symbolically into bloom. (Huna uses the same idea of the opening of the bud, and it is used in India with the lotus instead of the rose.) Only the Aumakua (at this stage) can become a full initiate, and then only when the three selves have come into complete harmony as a working team.” (A page was given over to the idea of the solar body and the awakening of the kundalini, with the grave warning to let the Aumakua do the awakening in its own due course of time when the individual is ready. Yoga efforts to awaken it before the man is ready will result in disaster.)
HUNA DIRECTORY NEW NAME
- 68. Mrs. Donald Johnston, Rt. 2, Box 71, Mora, Minn. An eager student who would like to know neighboring HRAs, if any.
BEYOND THE WINDY PLACE is a fairly recent book by Maude Oakes. It was published by Farrar, Straus and Young, New York, and I found it in a local library. It is a most interesting account of the life led by the writer in a far corner of the Guatemalan highlands where roads end and trails begin. She lived with the Indians for two years to get from them the native religious lore, and was successful. I was impressed by one of her experiences during a time when she was doctoring people in the village during an epidemic. She was very tired and was forced to put to use her own religion combined with what she had learned from the Indians. She relates, page 224:
“That night I went out into the yard to pray for Manuel and the girl with the typhoid. At such times, which became steadily more frequent, I found it more satisfactory to pray outdoors than in the house. I often thought how silly this was, for no matter where you are, God is.
“As I stood with my feet on the earth, my hands turned upward toward the sky in a gesture of receiving, it seemed to me I was tuned to a wave length beyond my world. I sensed that I was too egotistical and inadequate to comprehend the message, so I prayed, saying, ‘God, or whatever you are called, please help me to be humble and ego-less, and to be open to receive. Please give me the strength and the knowledge to serve. Please save Manuel and the typhoid child.’ I felt at peace, for I knew that I belonged, that I was part of a whole and that I would be allowed to serve. I now had faith that Manuel and the child would be saved.” (She explains that during her prayer.) “I felt a tingling in my hands and a great force enter my body.”
This last line, as above quoted, tells of an experience now so familiar to us through our Huna prayer-action work and the giving of the mana surcharge to the Aumakua – with the return flow – that I feel like extending the hand of fellowship to Maude Oakes, wherever she may be today and whatever research she may be carrying on.
MORE HUNA-TYPE SENSATIONS AND RESULTS
Reported in a letter from HRA H.H. of Pennsylvania. I quote:
“We have an evangelist here, a lady, who has been having miracle Fridays here in Pittsburgh for the last four years. Hundreds of people have been healed instantaneously. Cancers are literally burned out. I saw an eight year old boy with a three or four inch built up shoe get a leg healing within half an hour, so that both legs were the same length and new shoes had to be bought so the lad could walk home. Terrific heat accompanies the healing and sometimes there comes something like electric shocks. Most bodies under the healing power vibrate as one having a fit, but the lady preacher assures them it is God’s work and wonderful things are accomplished. She says she sees something like a golden rain falling over the auditorium during the healings.
I am endeavoring to make contact with this healer so that I can send her one of our new books. My hope is that she can and will help try out the foot-washing method to unblock the path and remove the complexes and eating companion evil spirits. I’ll report later on her.
The physical motion or agitation which accompanies the healing process and which was described as “like fits” in the above account of the ministrations of the lady preacher (as she calls herself), takes us back to the E-Therapy findings of HRA A. L. Kitselman who found that there were definite physical reactions in many cases when people were being treated through the use of his method. Other users of slightly similar methods have reported such reactions. Some report the use of stout pillows for certain patients to pummel. The Holy Rollers may have belonged in this class with their dancing and clapping, shouting and carrying on with “tongues.” The lighter or first stages of hypnosis frequently bring laughter and crying, as does Dianetics and E-Therapy in certain cases.
All these physical or nervous reactions begin to take on more definite meaning as we progress in our search for the best means of getting complexes removed and eating companion spirits driven away. L. Ron Hubbard observed these reactions and decided that there was much force or energy tied up with the complex – he called it the “engram” – and that when these were broken down, the energy which was released caused the physical reactions. He also, at one time, had a little to say about the production of great heat at some stage in his “Scientology” experiments, and warned that the patient or “preclear” should be grounded lest he be burned – this showing that he believed the heat to come from some electrical form of energy.
In the case of the lady preacher and her healing, the report quoted speaks of cancers being literally “burned out,” by the heat which was generated and described as “terrific.” In chemical reactions, great heat or cold appears under certain conditions. The atomic bomb is a prime example of this. Electricity is also involved in such reactions, so the “electrical shock” connected with the healing is to be expected. In psychical research, where objects are brought as apports, they are often too hot to touch upon arrival, but temperature changes can be, and often are, kept under control. Blocks of ice, pans of frying eggs, and living plants and animals, even human beings, have been brought as apports into the seance rooms.
In Mark’s account of the healing work done by Jesus, (1:26) we read, “And when the unclean spirit had torn him (hookaawili in the language of na kahuna) and cried out with a loud voice, he came out of him.” The “torn” word given in Hawaiian above, has in its roots (hoo`kaa`wili) the Huna secret code which tells us just what took place. The root kaa means:
- A cross, Huna symbol of a complex or obsessional influence or both, so we see that the command given by Jesus, speaking as one united with his Aumakua, caused the crazed man to be freed by the Aumakua. This was done with some use of mama sent back and forth along the aka cord because kaa also means,
- A vine, which is the symbol of rising mana, and a cord, which is the symbol invariably of the aka cord leading to the Aumakua. (The root wili means “twist,” also a mana symbol.)
- To radiate, is the fourth meaning and it is applied to radiating light from the sun, symbol of the high mana returned by the Aumakua after being given the sacrificial gift of low mana to be transformed and used in healing. This radiation also applies to the heat radiated out from fire, hot iron, coals and the like, indicating the use of heat in the healing process.
- To pass off, to take effect as an emetic or cathartic. This shows literally and symbolically the removal of the complex and evil spirit. Other meanings are “gone, absent, no more.”
- A path to walk in. This is also the symbol of the aka cord and it is this “path” that is having the “stumbling blocks” removed from it.
- To cause to be done. This meaning indicates that Jesus did not actually remove the complexes and evil spirit himself. He did what was necessary on the physical-mental level to “cause” the Aumakua to take over and do the cleansing and healing. (“Not I, but the Father, He doeth the works.”)
- To pay a debt. Here we have the necessity for making amends if we have hurt others, directly to the ones hurt or vicariously by doing good deeds or by such things as fasting to go with the vicarious amends and impress the Aunihipili that something real has been done to deserve the help which it is planned to call down.
- To roll off, or to remove. This form of removal was indicated in the Hawaiian translation of the account of how an “angel” rolled away the “stone” to release the arisen Jesus from the tomb. (The word for stone is pohaku, po being “darkness” and haku, “a lord or master.” In other words, the angel or Aumakua rolled away or removed a “Lord of darknness,” a devil, or a very evil spirit, perhaps a mixture of spirit and heavy complexes as symbolized by the cross of the crucifixion.) (To “rise” as from the dead is ho(o)`ala, which is literally, “To make a path” or to open up a blocked path.) The path is the aka cord to the Aumakua which is said to be blocked when complexes, evil obsessional influences or deep senses of guilt cause the Aunihipili to refuse to contact the Aumakua along the aka cord by telepathic means or to send the mana with the thought-forms of the prayer for help. It was the custom of na kahuna to put the secret meanings in duplicate words so that if one became changed, the secret would be safe in the other. In Mark 1:31, same page as the verse we have been discussing, Jesus took Simon’s wife’s mother by the hand and hoo`ala`ed or “raised” her. Immediately the fever left her and she was healed. It would be hard to convince a kahuna that he simply lifted her up from her bed in order to bring about her healing. Something was done to open her “path.”
- The final meaning of the root kaa is to be sick, to suffer, to mourn or weep. In many cases (remember the “mourner’s bench”) there is weeping on the part of those brought to see the evil of their ways. Weeping is also part of the reaction in many cases in E-Therapy and Dianetics. Quimby, who invented the basic treatment method which was later expanded into Christian Science, often predicted that his patients would become worse for a short time, but then be cured. Huna suggests that the part of the immediate future which has already been set or crystallized must be broken down before it can be replaced by the Aumakua with the new and better future. In many cases in our HRA work, it has been found that when we begin making prayer-actions for help or healing, things seem suddenly to worsen slightly or badly, then the help comes. In Dianetics, the efforts to dredge up and drain off “engrains” causes bodily pain very often to increase or to revive as well as mental suffering as past events are recalled. (See pages 209 through 339 of the new book, SSAW – not SSBM – for much more along these and related lines. If you wish to do a little missionary work for Huna, the new book will be ideal to place in the hands of friends, especially those with more liberal religious leanings.
