The “Second Coming” – More Growth Test Results
July 1, 1953
THIS IS THE LAST HRA BULLETIN, at least for a little while, until we can get Guidance as to what the next step is for us to try to take together. Thanks to the kindness of several of you who have sent Cigbo a gift. After the end of his June 1, 1953 “fishkul year,” he will have enough in his box to get us out a news letter or quarterly bulletin or something a bit later on.
THE WAY THINGS STAND AT THE MOMENT
With new people always running into the old book, SSBM, and writing to ask what was going on, then asking to join the HRA, they were 5 1/2 years behind in knowing what we had been doing, testing, discovering and speculating upon. This made it very necessary that we boil down the 1,000+ pages of back Bulletin material and order the material, expand some of it, and provide a better way of bringing new members up to the minute on the work. So, I wrote the new book, SECRET SCIENCE AT WORK, but, being without a publisher (Kosmon Press not wishing to bring out such a book), I followed Guidance to the best of my ability, got a friend to go in with me and borrow money, and then join in the work of advertising and selling the book to share our findings with the public, and, if possible, to help out with personal finances.
Under the set-up as before, I had come to have to work from 9 in the morning until 11 every night, seven days a week to keep the Bulletins coming out and to send even the shortest answers on the “tinned letter” sheets to my ever increasing numbers of friends. The HRA membership, which had stayed at about 300 for five years because I had periodically “deadwooded” those who did not pay their share of the Bulletin expenses, rose to over 400 because I saw the end coming and let the “free riders” just stay on during the past year. In the application blank sent for new members to use, I asked for a dollar a month if that was possible, or at least for enough to buy the stamps to be used in sending the Bulletins. As a general rule, the new member sent the first dollar, wrote about five letters asking questions to be answered, and was then heard from no more. Many were added who were old and sick and too poor to pay even for stamps. The overseas members seldom could send out anything, and they have been carried for the most part by the ones able to contribute. The wonder of it all, to me, is that we have been able to keep going as long as we have – which is, of course, something for which we must give our warmest thanks to the few loyal, able and very generous HRAs who have sent more than their share to Cigbo, month in and month out. We have, for the most part, done what we could, or at least what our interest in the Huna research dictated – this interest, admittedly, being rather small for a great many.
It has been suggested that the Bulletin be put on a straight subscription basis if renewed publication is contemplated. This I have hesitated to do as so many could not pay even a dollar a year. On the other hand, unless I can give all my time free to getting out the Bulletin and answering letters connected with the work, the cost of the subscription, to pay for issuing a twice-monthly 8-pager, and of paying for the time of an editor and two girls for a staff, would be out of sight.
It is too bad that the ugly monster of money has to have even the slightest consideration when friends group together to undertake research or a search for God, but under modern conditions we seem either to have to pay cash for paper and envelopes and stencils and stamps, or be reduced to taking the begging bowl and going out to preach our “good word” to one person at a time, if that were not frowned upon by the vagrancy laws. I quite agree with the time honored dictum that “religion should be free,” but for the life of me at the moment I cannot figure out how to pass it out without printing, postage and envelopes. Even in the churches the hat has to be passed. Perhaps the best way is for those who, like myself, yearn to tell others of the Light they have found, to give to this labor of love only their spare time and what few spare dollars they can find above their living expenses to squander on their missionary efforts.
On the other hand, there are many people who are both wise and modern, who assert that if a person is not willing to pay a money price for what he wants in religion or otherwise, he will never value what he gets or try to use it. This line of reasoning, I am sad to say, seems very close to the truth. So, it may be better to drop the effort to get out a Bulletin and answer the letters which are an inevitable part of this approach, and simply write, print and offer for sale betimes whatever may come to hand, head, heart or spirit which seems worthy of being passed on. Perhaps that is the solution to the present problem. We shall see what Guidance is given on the matter. Meantime, I will be driving my hardest to push the new book project through successfully. Later on I may be able to find ways and means to organize and direct extensive tests of the new methods found in the Huna-in-Bible passages. The foot-washing and other rites seem to offer the greatest promise of help in removing the complexes and spirit “eating companions” so that our path to the Aumakua can be fully opened.
OTHER METHODS OF REMOVING COMPLEXES AND EVIL SPIRIT INFLUENCES may also be tested. A recent letter from Sydney Hewitt, written after reading the new SSAW, carries the comment that fasting, which was a part of early Christian ritual observance, has been found in his own work to be invaluable just by itself. He says, “You see, my experience with fasting is such that I consider it not merely ancillary to spiritual development but practically essential to the achievement of that aim. In fasting, between 600 and 700 patients for every disease under the sun and for periods ranging from five to fifty-six days, one cannot fail to notice effects other than physical. I call fasting ‘Nature’s quick method of psychoanalysis.’ 90% of insanity is curable by that method.”
I have written at once to tell of our eager interest in this line of findings, and to ask for more information on as many points as possible. The “Lady Preacher” in the East, Miss Kathryn Kuhlman, recently mentioned in a Bulletin, uses fasting as a preparation for her prayer healing ministrations. If mental and physical ills are due to evil spirit influences or obsession in many cases, as na kahuna believed, then fasting would make life in the body of the obsessed no longer attractive – even very distasteful as well as uncomfortable. (It must also be remembered that Dr. Bidwell recently told – as reported in a Bulletin – of his success in treating cancer by means of a long fast. If I remember rightly, there was a theory advanced not too long ago that cancer was caused by spirits fastening themselves to the living and causing certain cells to begin to grow in a strange way to take over the victim by degrees, just as does a parasitic plant entity feeding on its host.)
Dr. A.J.P. GETS RID OF PATIENTS’ “EATING COMPANIONS,” he tells me in a recent letter. I quote from it. “Last week I had mother and daughter patients, each of whom had ‘eating companions.’ I used my old formula which reads like this: “Attention, my Inner Self. I am calling through Thee to the mighty Angels to come forth and seize from within and around (name patient) all disembodied beings of every kind and nature; take them to their place, bind them there until they acknowledge Jehovah as the Father and Creator of all. I thank you that it is done.”
In both cases there was an outbreak of profuse perspiration, jerking, sickening of the stomach, etc. Ten minutes later the daughter said, ‘I feel more like myself than I have in years.’
“Both were in again today. What an improvement one could observe! The quality of their voices, their calm manner and positive actions – they were just changed personalities.”
The Doctor also sent me a new test signature which he had written after, as he described it, “applying or using the ‘Light’ or mana all day long, practically without let-up since morning, and with the usual excellent results.” His first signatures for the growth test were reported as the third test on page 3 of Bulletin No. 102. In that test his normal brain radiation showed at 386 degrees and his signature made with prayer rose to 560. In the present test card the reading of the “will” and personality pattern remained the same as before, but the brain radiation reading at the end of the day of prayerful healing work was 417 degrees. That this higher-than normal reading was found suggests that he still retained a part of the faster vibratory rate of prayer.
The thing that seems to prove this is that his “will” and personality pattern on this reading both showed the “perfect” pattern of straight up-and-down for the “will” and a large, strong and round clockwise personality pattern gyration. One may conclude from Dr. A.J.P.’s experience that the use of the High Mana in prayer involving the Aumukua has a replenishing feature which makes continuous healing possible. This fits the Huna theory of the return flow of High Mana matching the sending of low mana along the aka cord to the Aumukua. On the other hand we must not forget that map dowsers, not consciously depending on such an exchange, tire after about five minutes, even when they are the most gifted, having to rest up before trying again. The implication seems to be that the Aunihipili, going off to locate the territory represented by the map, and establishing an aka thread of connection to it, uses up a large amount of low mana, and as this is not at once replaced, psychic fatigue (or bodily also?) results. (Dr. Oscar Brunler tested map dowsers at a dowsers’ convention, and is responsible for the observations just mentioned.)
NEWS FROM THE “EIDETIC” FRONT
News arrived by way of a neat five-page mimeo weekly just started by Eidetic Foundation, 252 Mershon St., Fairhope, Alabama, H.R.A. Jim Welgos, head man. The news was contained in the new weekly, and it is that a new form of “processing” has been worked out which “amounts to no technique at all, but which, for want of a better name, we will continue to refer to as a technique.” Let me quote more. “The technique is such that it will GROW with the individual! At the start of each case the REAL problem of the individual is laid bare. From there he begins to build happiness for himself BY RESOLVING the various curious, spurious ways in which he has created the problem. Yes, the technique will produce optimums – flatly and emphatically, yes! It works fantastically FAST. How fast, depends solely on how desirous the individual is of solving the present time problem. Aberration? Pooh!” (Speaking later of the techniques, Jim explains that it is to be found in the Bible, in psychology books, in great literature, etc.) “In any material ever written by any optimum who ever tried to tell the truth to those who seek it. It is the stuff of which religions and philosophies are built.”
“What we have here is completely logical; it makes beautiful direct, simple sense; no imagery, gimmickry, or other gobbledegook is required in its presentation or use. We shall present it as it appears to us – as simple truth Because of these discoveries we have reached a decision to give up the intensive processing of individuals in favor of the more rapid dissemination of our knowledge that classes will afford. Classes are scheduled to start on July 6th, August 3rd, September 7th and so on.”
“Here is a fast way of learning (the new technique). Select times when others were doing things you didn’t like, then switch around and look at yourself, figuratively, in the incident and search for what you were believing or maintaining which caused you to feel that you were supposed to feel as you did.This is a belief which caused you to be out of harmony and made you unhappy. Are you still believing it? If so, why? Should you keep anything inside you unmodified which will cause you to dislike others and attempt to take away their right to live and believe as they feel they should? Don’t you want them to respect your rights and beliefs? Let’s all be more friendly – and have better perceptions.” (It is to be supposed that if one recalled an incident in which one disliked seeing a man beat a dog, this type of incident would be out of bounds.)
EIDETICS has been coming around rapidly to what seems to be Huna-in-Bible method of getting rid of complexes and the “evil spirit” obstructions which prevent working contact with the Aumukua. More and more, Eidetics advocates arriving at a desire to improve as a first step, then, taking a good look at one’s self and forcing improvement by contemplating past warped points of view. Huna, as taught secretly by Jesus and his initiate disciples, insisted on the willingness to turn to the hurtless life, to .rake amends for past hurts, either directly or vicariously – in kind then to pass from the “conversion” stage through the three “baptisms,’ one of water or mana, one of fire and one by the Holy Spirit. The use of the High Mana or “fire” by the Holy Spirit or Aumukua, to dig down from the top and clear the path of obstructing complexes and entity influences, appears to be the missing step in Eidetics as well as in Dianetics-Scientology, psychoanalysis, and the like.
NEWS FROM THE “E THERAPY” FRONT
News was recently given by HRA A.L. Kitselman, who called at the Study with good friend of Huna, Fred Kimball (who reads one’s subconscious by means of his own subconscious with results which may be hard to prove or disprove, but which are often impressive). Mr. Kitselman has been making extensive studies of the teachings of great world teachers and preparing a series of lecture tapes which may be had for individual or class instruction. During this intensive study he has also had much “E Therapy” processing. I was greatly interested to find, upon running a Biometric test for him, that since March 9th of this same year, he has retained the perfect “will” pattern which he then had, but has made his circle or personality pattern much larger and stronger and almost perfectly round. His brain radiation count, which was 409, has risen to 430, a really amazing rise for so short a period. While his study was not undertaken entirely with the aim of having a part in our “growth” test project, it certainly gives splendid confirmation of the fact that one CAN take one’s self in hand with a determination to grow-evolve mentally, emotionally and spiritually, and CAN succeed.
Mr. Kitselman discussed with me the need of the Huna cycle of (1) conversion and amends, (2) the kala or cleansing which may be accomplished to a lesser degree by the Aunihipili and Auhane, and (3) the complete kala or cleansing which can only be accomplished through the help of the Aumukua. I was given permission to use the “E Therapy” book and to add my own slant and comments to go with it – these, of course, to be in keeping with Huna. Perhaps later, ways and means to publish such a combination book will be found. It would furnish a working outline of value for those who wish to use the foot-washing rite for others or to have it used for themselves.
A “SECOND COMING” or the incarnation of another great teacher, has occurred, Mr. Kitselman believes. He speaks of this and other interesting matters in his recently issued 15-page offset-printed release, the heading of which is, “THE SECOND COMING OF CHRIST.” His address is 201 Clayton St., San Francisco, Calif., The Institute of Integration, should you wish to have a copy of the release or to have a list of the lecture tape releases and other available items. (Mr. Kitselman is a great admirer of J. Krishnamurti, who is currently lecturing again at Ojai, California this summer, and it may be that in this gentleman we have his “Second Coming.” It will be remembered that the Theosophists at one time expected Krishnaniurti to become, at a given date, an incarnation of the expected new world teacher, but that nothing happened except that the young man disclaimed the need for organized religion and went off bravely on his own – a thing which won him respect on all sides.)
THE HUNA IDEA OF THE “SECOND COMING” had for its outer meaning the actual return of the god Lono, in Hawaii, or of Jesus, in Bible lands. The inner and secret meaning is that Huna, which Jesus taught and symbolically embodied in himself when he stood for the “Way, the Truth and the Light,” was to “Return from the West” one day after being long lost. I am convinced that we of the HRA have been instrumental in bringing about this SECOND COMING OF THE TRUE LIGHT, and if there is anything in the “Pyramid Prophesy” for this coming August, I imagine it will have to do with this “Return,” and with nothing else. That a new world teacher may simultaneously appear to again proclaim the ancient Truth of Huna, we can only hope. Personally, I would greatly welcome such a teacher, but I have very grave misgivings as to whether or not he could make his voice heard in conditions such as grip the world at this time. On the other hand, if world conditions should begin to go rapidly from bad to worse, the very suffering of humanity might force it to turn to anything which offered betterment.
THE REPORT ON THE GROWTH TESTS
This report is the excuse for issuing this extra Bulletin, but as I have had several letters from HRAs who did not take part in the tests, complaining that they were bored by pages of readings which had nothing to do with them, I have decided to report directly to the HRAs who have sent in their final set of test signatures, in cases where there was a change for the better. (I have already made the readings and have sent a personal report to most of those who sent in a second set of signatures after making an honest try at growth. About 10% of those who sent in the first test cards really worked and sent in the second and final set.)
The conclusion which has been reached has already been given. IT CAN BE DONE. We can, by using a variety of methods, cause our Biometric patterns to become bettered, even perfect. We can raise our brain radiation or “soul” (as Dr. Oscar Brunler liked to call it) count much more than had been expected.
Whether or not one can (granting that a limited series of reincarnations are probably part of the evolutionary scheme) in a single incarnation make sufficient growth-through-planned-effort to “escape the wheel of reincarnations” we cannot say, but that this may be possible is something not to be put lightly aside. Only those quite lacking in ambition will be content to keep reincarnating when there is the chance that one may be able to evolve into higher levels of conscious being. Or, one may put it this way, whatever form of evolutionary growth one inclines to believe in, it constitutes the whole of the “SALVATION” promised by the following of religious teachings. At first thought most of us incline to say that we love life as we know it and would gladly live our lives over and over. But on second thought, most of us shrink from the thought of having to live over even this present life if unable to change it in any detail. Most of us have, on looking back, so little of accomplishment to show that the efforts made seem out of all proportion with the results. One begins to realize keenly that only inner growth has really counted. Or shall we include in that growth the levels of the Aunihipili and the emotions as well?
THIS REPORT WOULD NOT BE COMPLETE were I to make no mention of the painful fact that some of the HRAs taking the tests slipped back after a first rise upward as seen in the Diametric readings. One good friend amongst the HRAs furnished me with old signatures and photos so that I could trace his ups and downs over a period of years. He then worked very hard with the use of Dianetics-Scientology methods. using an “R Meter” and getting a long intensive Scientology “run” by expert Scientologists. At the end of the intensive he sent in test signatures and I was delighted to be able to report back that he had come up several degrees and had bettered both will and personality patterns. Just what took place between the end of the intensive and a letter sent a few days ago, I have no way of knowing, but in making a Biometric reading of three lines of the letter written in ink (the signature was in pencil, which is difficult to test), I was distressed to find the fine gains almost entirely lost.
This is something which I report only with some reluctance, but it is almost more important than the proven fact that the Scientology methods can and do cause a radical rise and betterment in Biometric readings. It proves that this method of growth cannot be depended upon to last. It is a matter which resembles only too closely the familiar “backsliding” of converts in the churches. One is even forced to remember that sometimes a period of being intensely good ends by a swing of equal strength in the opposite direction.
The obvious conclusion is that (1) either the methods used to cause the betterment were lacking in that they were not sufficiently complete and so left “seed” complexes uncleared to grow to replace those which were removed, or (2) the ministrations of the Aumukua are absolutely necessary if a lasting and complete cleansing job is to be done. (This would hold good for the convert of the church or for anyone undertaking to “grow-evolve” through the use of any other approach to the good and hurtless and evolved condition.)
There seems little question, now that our growth test has been made, that na kahuna of old were entirely right when they taught the necessity of making our growth on all three self levels. Trying to grow without the help of the Aumukua is folly. To try to force mental growth in ability and power without first going through the “conversion” stage and then that of cleansing and the higher phase of “baptism” is even greater folly provided one has become aware of the necessity of turning over the new leaf. Too many of us have been determined to have our cake of hurt-sin and at the same time to eat it. A great kahuna once said, “Seek first the kingdom of heaven, and all else shall be added unto you.” It would seem that there is no other “technique” which can be used to gain the same ends. The path must be unblocked and contact gained and kept with the Aumukua. Only then can all the hoped for things be “added unto” us.
Only one Frederick Marion Course student has supplied needed test signatures for the beginning of the course and for readings as the work has progressed. However, this HRA, after finishing half the course shows good improvement in “will” and personality patterns and a rise in brain radiation reading. The actual work of getting through to the “Universal Mind” comes later in the course, and I await with interest the test signatures from any of the HRAs when they get past that point.
THE GOAL, AIM AND REWARD FOR GROWTH such as we have been attempting through the use of various training methods, appears to be all that Hubbard offered those who would become “clears” through the use of Dianetics – increased mental powers, clear, swift thinking, much better memories, and so on. In addition, if we add the Huna cleansing by the Aumukua, there will undoubtedly be awakened psychic powers of a high order and the ability to experience frequent periods of REALIZATION (similar to that in Zen practices) in which we blend in consciousness with the Aumukua and are able to glimpse the utter realities of the “pattern world.” The goals are greatly – vastly – worth striving to reach.
NEW STUDIES ARE PLANNED this summer as I can get a few spare hours. I have discovered a wealth of material in MMS discovered in recent years, and which were not included in the New Testament when it was assembled. The books of G. R. S. Meade, (out of print now) are a good source for translations and comment. In his FRAGMENTS OF A FAITH FORGOTTEN, one gets the material from the Askew Codex, covering the Pistis Sophia and Extracts from the Book of the Savior. From the Codex Brucianus there is the Untitled MS and the Book of the Great Logos. Also the Akhrum Codex, The Acts of Thomas and the Forgotten Sayings.
In Mead’s ECHOES FROM THE GNOSIS set there is significant Huna material to be found, especially in The-Hymn of Jesus, A Mithriac Ritual, The Gnostic Crucifixion, and even in the Chaldaean Oracles.
The works that come under the title of THE COPTIC APOCRYPHA also contain “gospels” which did not get included in the New Testament, and which here and there have passages of great Huna significance. The 1928 book by Dr. Frank L. Riley, THE BIBLE OF BIBLES, (probably out of print now), gives many excellent selections from the writings mentioned above, also many from religions developed in India and China as well as elsewhere.
THE “MYSTERIES” CONTAINING HUNA were frequently mentioned in these early writings. In the Pistis Sophia we read, “But few will comprehend the higher mysteries. I tell you that there will be found one in a thousand, and two in ten thousand for the consummation of the mysteries of the First Mystery.” It is such passages which merit our close study, now that we know the nature of the “mysteries of the kingdom of heaven,” and since we can see only too plainly the great inertia of the masses of humanity and the reluctance of the individual – even of advanced mental power to set determinedly to work to get freed of “stumbling blocks” and to establish and KEEP free contact with the Aumukua, which is, in the last analysis, the Master of the Mysteries.
THE “SACRED LANGUAGE” of na kahuna was undoubtedly used in the genuine and effective mystery teachings. One reads from THE BOOK OF THE GREAT LOGOS, under the heading of “Baptism of Water,” “The Master then turns with his disciples to the four corners of the world, and the disciples are commanded to set their feet together (the Aunihipili was symbolized as “feet” in the rite of the foot-washing). He then offers a prayer which is prefixed with an INVOCATION IN THE MYSTERY LANGUAGE, intersperced with TRIPLE Amens, and continues as follows: ‘Hear me My Father, Father of all Fatherhood, Boundless Light, who art the Treasure of Light. May the Supporters come who serve the Seven Virgins of Light who preside over the Baptism of Life. May they come and baptize my disciples with the Water of Life of the Seven Virgins of Light, and wash away their sins and purify their iniquities, and number them among the heirs of the Kingdom of Light.” In Huna the word for “seven” and the idea of “supporting” or lifting up, take us back to the symbol of “rising” to cause all three selves to “stand in line” or in contact. The idea of the “Virgins of Light” is indeed intriguing, and I will try to find out what lies behind this. On the face of it, there would seem to be little of importance, but it may cover something of great value. In Hawaiian, a “virgin is a puu`paa. Puu means to dip up water in the hands, and indicates a gathering of low mana for baptismal use.
