Two explanation levels

During a contact evening, Jozef Rulof explains that his master Alcar wrote the trilogy ‘A View into the Hereafter’ according to the social thinking:
We taught you that, but master Alcar - I told you that several times - wrote ‘A View into the Hereafter’ according to our human, material, earthly, social thinking and feeling.
So still not seen spiritually, and not spatially either and not divinely either, but followed perfectly simply, humanly.
Questions and Answers Part 3, 1952
The three books of the trilogy ‘A View into the Hereafter’ were published between 1933 and 1936.
In these books, master Alcar emphasizes the importance that Jozef asks him questions, so that he can give the explanations at the level of thinking of Jozef himself:
Is this also clear to you?
One other thing: ask me as much as you want to.
Your question is my link; I want you to understand this correctly.
I’m keeping to a set plan without any side-tracking.
Now, if you would like to know something, don’t hesitate to ask, and I will reply to the best of my abilities.
The deeper you’re adapted, the more wisdom it will mean to you in the spirit.
Your feeling will tell you what to ask and I will answer you.
So ask on behalf of all the people on earth who would like to, but can’t yet, as they don’t possess this gift.
A View into the Hereafter, 1936
First, master Alcar showed Jozef (who is often called André in the books) the spheres in the hereafter.
When they later begin with the soul level of the cosmology, they will no longer have to follow the spheres:
André has got to know the spheres.
If Master Alcar had not yet followed those laws, then we would not yet have been able to experience these books, but that is no longer necessary now.
The Cosmology of Jozef Rulof Part 5, 1944
For instance, the masters in ‘A View into the Hereafter’ also spoke about ‘hells’, because the human being on earth had formed this word.
However, many images that the human being built up about hell, do not respond to the spiritual reality.
There is no hell in which people can burn eternally, but there are dark spheres which the human being builds up by means of disharmonic actions on earth.
At the soul level of the cosmology, people no longer speak about hells, but about a dark spiritual world in which the soul lives which is still on the way in order to discover its own light and to allow it to radiate:
These are the terrible hells which the Bible speaks about and the human being got to accept.
We too, André, spoke about hells, because we followed the human feeling and thinking, but the Cosmology no longer speaks of hells.
After all, they do not exist!
But the human being condensed, created such a hell, even if there was darkness in there and the first human being did not understand himself, yet the misery was not so awful as we now have to accept.
Who created the human being in such a way?
He himself!
Who created the hells?
The human being!
We followed and got to know the laws of life of the first people.
Now see the difference.
Try to make yourself one with this world and you will know your own misery.
The sphere says that, gives us the law of life to experience as a universe and we have to accept that now for the present stage.
In this world all the misery which the human being possesses on Earth lives together, but now as an astral personality.
That misery is personal.
The human being, man and woman, forgot themselves.
Nothing was able to stop the human being, he lived it up by means of the life on Earth.
What we now got to know on Earth as evil, we find again in this world.
Millions of men and women have attunement to these worlds, these seven transitions as laws of life, because they violated the life of the universe on Earth.
In the books ‘A View into the Hereafter’, my brother André, we analyzed all the hells.
For the Cosmology we now only determine the spatial laws, because we gave the child of Mother Earth a complete analysis of the spheres of darkness.
This is the world for the soul as human being.
The Cosmology of Jozef Rulof Part 5, 1944
In the hereafter, the masters speak telepathically by means of their spiritual power, but on earth they must use the earthly language:
We use the earth’s languages to make ourselves understandable there, but you must understand, André, here we only use our spiritual energy, and this goes for our speech too.
A View into the Hereafter, 1936
The masters ensured that the explanation level remained in harmony with the personality of Jozef:
As a result of that, no worlds were missed out and his personality remained in harmony, even if he succumbed several times.
The Cosmology of Jozef Rulof Part 5, 1944
In this way, the masters built up their university step by step:
You can now accept that we laid stone upon stone for the University of Christ.
The Cosmology of Jozef Rulof Part 5, 1944
By experiencing about twenty books, the feeling and thinking of Jozef is ready for the soul level:
He now realizes that better than before, when he walked in the streets, and with ‘The Bridge to Eternal Life’, ‘The Cycle of the Soul’ ... and when he experienced and underwent the other books, made the journeys to the hells and the heavens.
Now everything is clear to him.
And if Master Alcar had not begun with that then he would not have been ready either for this thinking.
Lectures Part 3, 1952

From mercy and gift to reincarnation

During a contact evening, a woman asks Jozef what the situation is with the word mercy that she has read in his books.
She has meanwhile gathered from the books that an innate gift has nothing to do with receiving a mercy, but rather to do with what the soul mastered in past lives:
Someone from the hall now asks: ‘So there is no mercy for the receiving of Divine gifts?’
Jozef says: ‘No, mother, madam, that exists for nothing!
We people must master everything.
Were you here, when we were talking about the human voice?
Yes?
Then you will certainly understand it.’
Lady: ‘I understand it now and accept it, because this is the only justice for me, because otherwise one human being would receive everything and the other nothing and God cannot approve of that.
But I read the word ‘mercy’ after all in your books!’
Jozef says: ‘That is true, master Alcar also speaks about mercy there, but that is seen from the human thinking.
What we are talking about, already belongs to the cosmology and we must earn all those gifts honestly and by giving our blood for them!’
Questions and Answers Part 1, 1950
Also during another contact evening, a member of the public asks master Zelanus why the books by the masters speak about mercy, when it is later explained anyway that no mercy exists for receiving spiritual gifts:
(Gentleman in the hall): ‘But all your books speak about mercy; how do you explain this?’
There are no mercies.
Master Alcar said: ‘This is a mercy’, but then the books were described and experienced as a human being.
Can you feel this?
So you can ...
Do you call this which André has ... He writes, he paints, he can heal, he sees, he has some ten, twelve, fourteen, fifteen, sixteen, seventeen, twenty gifts – you already have it – they are gifts, aren’t they?
That is true, isn’t it?
They are gifts from Our Lord?
Questions and Answers Part 6, 1951
Master Zelanus explains that all the gifts of Jozef (André-Dectar) were earned, because in his past lives he worked on those inner powers in for instance Ancient Egypt.
For instance, the book ‘Between Life and Death’ describes the past life of Jozef as an Egyptian temple priest.
As a result, the built-up inner powers entered the subconscious of Jozef, so that during his last life on earth Jozef could be ready to expand his feeling and thinking to the soul level of the cosmology.
His gifts were not given but earned:
They were earned.
So, in Ancient Egypt ...
Read ...
This is why we brought ‘Between Life and Death’, ‘A View into the Hereafter’.
But if we come to the cosmology, then you will have to earn everything.
So André-Dectar, Jozef Rulof is ready to proclaim this, to bring this.
Questions and Answers Part 6, 1951
Terms such as mercy were used in the books for the human being who thinks in terms of mercy.
The soul level of the cosmology was built up gradually, so that Jozef (André-Dectar) could follow that development:
But you will earn everything.
But if you come across that in the books, then it was written for the human being who still lives in that mercy-like conscious or unconscious.
Can you feel this?
So adapted to the social, dogmatic, biblical thinking.
Because you will feel, master Alcar, the masters could not have begun immediately with cosmology, André, even as Jeus, could not have understood that.
That was built up gradually.
Questions and Answers Part 6, 1951
Terms such as for instance ‘day-consciousness’ are assumed to be known when the master begins with the soul level of the cosmology:
“We are leaving from the earth.
The earth is bathing in sunlight, but we attune ourselves to the spiritual astral world and now it becomes dark, therefore the sun disappears.
You now know all those laws because you possess the twenty books.
You will feel, you must be able to read and have read twenty books, if you wish to be able to deal with the cosmology.
Because you must now know what we all see and experience and why we can say: we dissolve for day-consciousness because we want to enter the spiritual worlds.
Lectures Part 3, 1952

From death to evolution

Half of the human dictionary can no longer be used in order to explain the evolution of the soul:
And then you start to understand for the first time how many unnecessary words the human being has to learn.
in order to become conscious for space.
Then you can throw half of your dictionary overboard if you start to see creation.
For example: there is no more death, that is now called: evolution, I will continue.
Continuing is death.
What kind of misery does that word ‘death’ not have on earth?
‘My mother is dead!’
And we say: ‘No, sir, she got ‘wings’, she will continue, or go back to the earth.’
Imagine what a difference.
Questions and Answers Part 3, 1952
At soul level death becomes evolution:
There is no life and death, evolution, fatherhood and motherhood and reincarnation, evolution.
The planets have that, we have that, all life has that.
Space is so perfectly simple, if you just know the divine foundations, and the transitions.
Questions and Answers Part 3, 1952
In order to reach this explanation level, the masters must first talk about that so-called death:
But then there is no death, because now death becomes evolution.
I must speak that name, that word in order to be able to make the comparison for the human being on earth, so that the human being feels and understands this.
There is no death.
No, that is the continuing in order to evolve.
Lectures Part 3, 1952
When writing the books by Jozef Rulof, the art was to find the correct word:
But you will feel, just to write these books is already an incredible difficulty in order to find the correct word.
But the masters are artists in that.
Artists.
And the dictionary of ours will certainly change, madam, as the human being gets more consciousness, then that word ‘passing away’ will be called ... that is clear, isn’t it?
But, madam, that is not clear to the masses and the world.
Because passing away does not even exist.
There is also no dying - that dying - and beating to death, ‘Yes’, they say, ‘I murdered a human being’, but soon you will no longer be able to murder a human being.
All those words will go from our dictionary.
And then you will get both the spiritual word and the meaning.
We have so many words in our dictionary here which have nothing and have false meanings.
Questions and Answers Part 3, 1952
At soul level, half of the human dictionary can be released:
Passing away.
And if you then come on the cosmic path, that means, if you now have to do with cosmic laws and science, then you can ... half of that dictionary, which portrays: spiritual science, psychology ...
Then the academic is completely off the mark.
And then he says: ‘That is this’, but it is not that.
Questions and Answers Part 3, 1952

The cosmology

The masters mainly expressed themselves with the aid of a social word use because at that time they could not yet use the soul level of the cosmology:
“I expressed myself like that then because I could not yet explain the ‘Cosmology’ to you and we now have to accept that.
The Cosmology of Jozef Rulof Part 5, 1944
Many books have consciously been kept from the soul level of the cosmology, so that the reader is not brought into contact too quickly with too many new terms:
Master Zelanus says: ‘’I did not write about that, because then I bring the human being into too many laws.’
Look, they absolutely kept those books from the cosmos at that time.
Questions and Answers Part 2, 1951
20 preparatory books were written in order to be able to begin with the ‘Cosmology’:
The Masters first initiated you by means of 20 books, before you can begin with the ‘Cosmology’.
But, the University of Christ gives an answer to all these questions and explains the grades of life and laws of life for the human being, the animal and Mother Nature.
The Cosmology of Jozef Rulof Part 2, 1944

New terms in order to describe the soul level

The cosmic soul level is given very different words:
Human thoughts built up a space.
Society originated as a result of your thinking and feeling, but not as a result of the All-Source.
You gave a name to the sun, you gave a name to the creating power, and it is called for you ‘sun’? And that is a ‘she’?!
And you christened the first cosmic grade in ‘moon’, but that is the first grade of evolution for the Divine revelations which we got hold of as a human being.
Mars is the second cosmic grade and the earth is the third for this universe, the very highest consciousness for the macrocosmos to which you belong.
And now it is called: Jupiter, Saturn ...
What kind of names are these, what do those names mean?
Lectures Part 1, 1950
In order to describe everything at soul level, many more books about the cosmology are needed, but the masters do not have time for that within the lifetime of Jozef, that will come later directly from the hereafter to the earth via a technical instrument:
I explained to you, and you can read that in ‘The Origin of the Universe’, and soon in the twentieth, thirtieth, fortieth, fiftieth, the hundred thousand books about the cosmology, which we would still write – we do not have time for that, of course – that comes into being from and of ‘beyond the coffin’.
Questions and Answers Part 5, 1950

The Origin of the Universe

‘The Cosmology of Jozef Rulof’ goes much deeper than the book ‘The Origin of the Universe’.
In the cosmology, the masters describe the All-Source as the source from which all the life in the cosmos was born:
By means of our journeys which we made in the universe, we experienced the first spiritual and the material laws for the cosmology.
Now we will go deeper.
We will now return to the All-Source.
And all of that is for the University of Christ.
Lectures Part 3, 1952
The human being projected his own human thoughts into the mouth of Christ.
That Biblical thought was included in ‘The Origin of the Universe’:
(Gentleman in the hall): ‘In ‘The Origin of the Universe’ it says ...’
Speak a little louder, then that microphone will be able to hear you there.
(Gentleman in the hall): ‘ ... explained how on Golgotha, where Christ said: ‘My God, my God, why have You forsaken me?’
Yes.
‘I do not understand the explanation which it gives there.’
Sir, it is not right either.
We have treated that, master Alcar has treated that, that question has already been asked here twenty times.
Master Alcar let me experience all the first nine books humanly, if it was about the thinking of the human being.
Golgotha: ‘My God, my God, why have You forsaken me?’
Christ never said that there because He was God.
If we can already accept: God does not forsake us, it is me myself.
If I do well, am harmonic, I will continue evolving.
And that divine Personality there in Jerusalem on the cross, He also said: ‘My God, my God, have You forsaken Me’?!
He comes from the Divine All and He has not seen God, He did not know that?!
Is that not really humanly put, which now passed those divine lips?
Questions and Answers Part 3, 1952
As a divine personality, Christ no longer knew any ‘abandonment’.
This human thinking does not correspond with the reality:
And then you know that Christ did not beg at Golgotha: My Father, why have you forsaken me?
That is not possible!
That is an untruth!
Lectures Part 1, 1950

Beyond the races

The cosmology is the actual core of what the masters brought, the other books are only preparations around this core:
But they are the little novels around the actual core.
Because when we begin with the cosmology, then we begin first: to analyze the All-Soul, the All-Mother, the All-Light, the All-Life, the All-Spirit, the All-Personality, the All-Fatherhood and All-Motherhood, the All-Laws, the elemental laws.
And then we will gradually continue.
Questions and Answers Part 6, 1951
A word such as ‘race’ was thought up by the human being:
Every word from your dictionary, take that into account, was not built up by God.
Because every word can mean a law.
But you thought up those words, the human being.
Questions and Answers Part 6, 1951
In order to explain a word at soul level, whole books are necessary:
All books; every word is a book now, in order to explain those laws to you.
Questions and Answers Part 6, 1951

From human being to All-Soul

The soul level transcends the material thinking and focuses on our cosmic soul as growing All-Source:
But now we go to the cosmology.
Divine laws now speak.
You free yourself from the material thinking and you go straight with us to the All-Source.
And then, when we experience this, this morning – I have to stand still now and again – then afterwards we get God as light, God as soul, God as spirit, fatherhood, and motherhood.
And you will experience that growing.
Lectures Part 3, 1952

From words to reality and truth

During a contact evening, Jozef Rulof explains to a lady that the masters used new words in order to be able to depict the reality of our cosmic soul.
With these new words, they can explain every phenomenon on one page, but then no one would understand that page without the key of the soul level:
And if you see that picture, madam, then you will feel, then mankind will get new words.
If we were to write a piece and we have analysed it spiritually - you cannot analyse it earthly, materially, socially by means of this dictionary - but then they will not understand any of it, because they have not yet heard of those systems.
Recently there was something in the paper and that was about the eel.
No one knows why the eel goes to the North Sea, to the seas.
I wrote that to that man, I say: ‘Sir, in one page I will explain the universe to you.’
This is a universe for the eel.
Whether they accept that; I do not know.
Madam, this is a spiritual-scientific revelation which I give the people, because it is perfectly simple if you know those laws.
But now that sea is no longer called ‘sea’, but now that sea is a space for giving birth.
As you as mother possess the organs for giving birth in the form of the womb; for the sea that is the space for giving birth, and that can be analysed completely, but that will take a book of five hundred pages; and it can be told in one page.
They do not understand a bit of that.
Why not?
Because not one academic amongst the whole of mankind knows anything about it.
He does not know the sea, he does not know the soul, does not know the spirit, and he does not know own independence for every insect; and then the independence for the seas.
Can you feel the wonderful depth which those people are faced with, and that you certainly cannot analyse that depth by means of material words?
Spiritual space is needed for that.
