Universal truth -- Sources

Source texts from the books by Jozef Rulof for the article ‘universal truth’.
By Ludo Vrebos, based on the books by Jozef Rulof.
These sources presume the prior reading of the article ‘universal truth’.

11,000 pages of truth?

In the books by Jozef Rulof people talk of a universal truth:
“Indeed, my brothers, all of this is Universal truth!
The Cosmology of Jozef Rulof Part 4, 1944
For Jozef there is no longer any ‘but’, no longer any doubt about this truth, because he can experience the reality:
I say a hundred thousand times: ‘There is no but, if you can experience the reality.’
Questions and Answers Part 2, 1951
For his audience a ‘but’ can of course come:
(Gentleman in the hall): ‘Mr Rulof, you just said: there are no buts. But I may not expect that people accept something on authority, may I?
They must feel themselves that it is true, mustn’t they?’
Questions and Answers Part 2, 1951
Jozef proposes that we first read his books if we want to learn something about his cosmology:
You see, if you begin to learn this ...
Questions and Answers Part 2, 1951
Then you will read there for the first time.
Questions and Answers Part 2, 1951
The member of the audience indicates that merely reading the books still does not give any ‘knowing for sure’:
(Gentleman in the hall): ‘Yes, of course. But look, there are always things which people think about themselves and which people do not immediately feel correctly, so then a but already comes.’
(Gentleman in the hall): ‘Then you could say: “There is no but, just believe that”, but that is not convincing.
Questions and Answers Part 2, 1951
From this Jozef understands that the member of the audience also wants to have ‘the rest’.
That rest is experiencing that reality oneself, by means of leaving the body:
Yes, yes, so you also wanted to have the rest too.
Questions and Answers Part 2, 1951
Next Jozef indicates that ‘buts’ leave for the readers who can accept the books because they sense the content as true:
You first go through all those books.
And they begin with the first foundation: hells, heavens, life ‘behind the coffin’.
That ‘but’ has gone, and that is a cosmic ‘but’.
Almost all of mankind now also asks: ‘Is there life ‘behind the coffin’?’
And that ‘but’ has gone ...
(Gentleman in the hall): ‘Yes ...’
... If you ... that ... No, sir, I will come back to you. ... if you can accept that.
Questions and Answers Part 2, 1951
After reading all those books, the reader from that time can ask Jozef his remaining question himself during a contact evening:
And now you continue.
And now you will begin here.
And now you will come to those ‘Question and Answer evenings’.
Questions and Answers Part 2, 1951
Jozef has experienced that a great deal of people still remain with a ‘but’, even if he feels that he has given the explanation as comprehensively as possible:
Now you can ask the question which lives in you, precisely in attunement with your life of feeling and consciousness.
And if I explain to you, sir, now the crazy part comes, and I say: so and so, and so and so, then there comes in you: ‘Oh, well, would he alone know that?’
There we are.
That is what it comes down to.
‘But, but’, comes again.
Questions and Answers Part 2, 1951
The member of the audience argues that this is not a matter of authority after all:
(Gentleman in the hall): ‘Then I could also continue to sit in the Catholic church; there you must also accept everything on authority.
That is the same thing.’
Questions and Answers Part 2, 1951
Jozef indicates that all the members of the audience are faced with the ‘but’:
Now it says: there is no death.
Now you must accept that from me on authority again, because science still does not know it.
You see: those people must all in that ‘but’, ‘but’ ...
Questions and Answers Part 2, 1951
Jozef confirms the importance of the feeling of the reader that says: ‘Yes, this is it.’
But they accept it, because their feeling says: ‘Yes, this is it.’
Questions and Answers Part 2, 1951
Jozef indicates that by reading you can build foundations in your thinking:
Because I am talking to the people who want to work on themselves and say: ‘Yes, it is true.’
And if you begin with the first foundations, then you will gradually get the whole space, because we have three books about the origin of the universe.
And then you get foundations.
Questions and Answers Part 2, 1951
But for much of what is written in his books, reading still does not give knowing for sure:
And finally you must also say: ‘Behind the coffin, Jozef Rulof, I will see whether you are right.’
Questions and Answers Part 2, 1951
But if this stops the reader from further examining what is written, his ‘but’ will stop the further expansion of his truth:
But when you continue to ‘raise objections’ here, you will never come any further; that is what we are concerned with.
If you say here: ‘But, but, but, but’, then we do not need to write another twenty books, and you do not need to read another ten, because you are already breaking your spiritual neck here; here is your standstill, because the first ‘but’ holds you from the other expansion, there is no longer a bridge.
Is that true?
Questions and Answers Part 2, 1951
In addition, the spiritual knowledge which people cannot examine for themselves can also be extremely interesting, because it can free the reader from for instance the painful consequences of ‘suicide’:
‘But’, the people say, ‘it is becoming easier by knowing this.
I now do not commit suicide, now that I know how that Lantos Dumonché experienced a rotting there.
I no longer wept for he who leaves me, who dies, whom I will soon see again.
Thousands and thousands of sciences, problems were now revelations for me.’
Not for you?
Questions and Answers Part 2, 1951
Jozef know what happiness it will be for the reader if he expands his personality:
And I want to give you the satisfaction which comes from me.
I want to talk for a thousand years in order to give you it, because I know what happiness it will be soon.
You will be more expansive.
You will do those things differently.
Here in society you will start to act differently.
What you could not do yesterday, you do today; that gives you a colour, that gives you inspiration.
Your tone, artists, your sound on the piano becomes lighter.
Your colours as an artist will become different.
You will awaken in everything.
Your personality will expand.
Questions and Answers Part 2, 1951

That is not possible

There are people who populate their hereafter with their earthly loved ones by means of their yearnings:
They are on the other side of the grave and do not know it.
As a result of this they live in an unreal world.
They take their earthly clothing with them, their jewellery, in the life of the spirit.
I already told you: in this life your longing creates.
As a result of this they are even capable of populating their spheres with beings who still live on earth!
They talk and see their relations, their friends, whom they left behind on earth, and no one could convince them at this stage that they are not here ...
Through the Grebbe Line to Eternal Life, 1942
Truth gives peace:
If you then sit down in the house, then you are true and that truth – that means – that is peace.
Truth is cordiality.
Truth is understanding.
Lectures Part 2, 1951
But not everyone is satisfied with that peace:
But if you reach too high, if you want to possess more than you can, than you have in feeling, have in consciousness, then it becomes lies and deception.
Lectures Part 2, 1951
Jozef Rulof gives an example of someone who sold her opinion for truth:
There, in the comer of the hall there is a photo of Elise van Calcar, a woman, who did much for spiritualism, but she said: ‘There is no reincarnation.’
And that word from this woman, who thought she knew something and had a good intellect, is literally accepted.
But I can now put the words of Elise van Calcar right again, I can labour to get reincarnation as a result of that.
Because this is the possibility for all the Life of God, in order to evolve.
There is nothing else!
I can now fight against all those believers – spiritualists – for life and death, for their own progress, because they are at a dead point.
Questions and Answers Part 1, 1950
Since spiritualists put forward their own opinion as truth, the contact with the spiritual world was sullied, because that opinion did not come from the spiritual world.
In addition, that sullying also has spiritual consequences.
Jozef Rulof visited Elise van Calcar in her hereafter with his master Alcar in an out-of-body state.
He saw that her spiritual body remained old because she could not expand herself spiritually.
Her supporters on earth stopped her expansion, because they repeated her untruth in themselves, and she as the perpetrator could no longer take back this and undo this untruth.
As a result, she continued to live in the spiritual unreality which she had created herself, because that unreality was fed by other people.
This state will only dissolve if no one holds onto and propagates her untruth any more:
And now and now and now? ... this whole universal, beautiful, wonderful, spiritual contact has been sullied by the spiritualist, Elise van Calcar.
Isn’t that a pity?
Am I perhaps attacking her?
No, sir, no, madam, on the other side you want the truth.
I saw them, I say: ‘Master Alcar, I should have heard that for years, ‘where does she live?
Does she already live on the other side?’
He says: ‘Yes, we know her.’
Everyone who pronounces just one word for Christ, is known on the other side.
And then I went to that old one.
She remained old.
A beautiful person.
Beautiful personality.
And sir, she remained old.
I say: ‘Master Alcar, what is that old age here?’
He said: ‘Because she is stuck to untruth.
The human being passes that on.
She cannot develop now.
She remains old, she remains earthly.’
Those cursed thoughts which she gave space to here on earth in our spiritualist, spiritual society, they keep her pressed to the earth, she cannot rise out above her inner life.
That untruth which she gave to the human being now keeps her out of the first sphere, madam, because you cannot enter the first sphere, which is reality, with such misery and such aftermath.
Questions and Answers Part 3, 1952
Selling her opinion for truth was megalomania:
And then you stand again, then you stand before Elise van Calcar, who has already passed on twenty years ago, we still sit here with Elise van Calcar in our stomachs.
And now is she spiritually conscious there, in the first sphere?
She would like that!
I asked her: ‘Are you happy?
Still tears here in the spheres?
Weeping from poverty?’
I say: ‘Madam, weep for your own megalomania, for the boasting which you knew, which you gave to mankind.
But you did not know it.’
That was boasting.
That was megalomania.
You must first say something then, ladies and gentlemen, if you know it.
Then you may say: ‘It is not possible.’
Questions and Answers Part 3, 1952
In the spiritual world people can go to the light if every thought is in harmony with the truth, with the reality, with the life as it was formed.
Then a thought is true, and that thought is one with the reality.
The thinking of that thought then gives a harmonic unity with the actual life:
Because your light, your life, your world is according to your feeling, consciousness, acting, thinking.
Your world, your space.
And if you think wrongly for a moment, then you can absolutely not be in the harmonic light, in that spatial justice, legislative powers and forces, thinking and living; because you are not in the harmonic unity for that thought.
Questions and Answers Part 4, 1952

Checking by means of our feeling

When we search for the truth, we can expand our personality and experience new truth:
That means, sir: we must search for the truth.
And experience the truth.
Questions and Answers Part 3, 1952
We can expand our knowledge if we examine freely, unprejudiced:
Free, we are researching.
(Gentleman in the hall): ‘But it concerns the truth, doesn’t it?
That is what it is about.
And you can test me as much as you like.
Questions and Answers Part 5, 1950
Loving the truth:
To love everything which lives, to love the truth and to put aside that which is wrong, to listen to the higher, the growing, the real, the true first footstep as a foundation in the spirit, do you not live for that now?
Lectures Part 3, 1952


The first step to reduce the distortion by the personality is to look at what is true in our thinking:
I told it recently, if we had a school, if I was allowed to set up the school with spiritual development – this is universal development, but the spiritual development – then we begin with the first, and the master on the other side does that, with the very first one: what is true in my thinking and what is untrue?
Questions and Answers Part 2, 1951
And this question was not only intended for apostle Peter:
Now we are already faced with this situation: which is the truth of yourself?
How deep are you in your word?
Does your word have spiritual meaning, therefore already obtained a spiritual foundation?
Can we, can God, can Christ, count on that?
Not true perhaps, madam ... Peter, who walked next to Christ, let the cock crow!
That same cock crows for us.
Yes, madam, perhaps for our whole character, and now you know immediately, what I mean and what we have to do for ourselves.
For how many hundreds of thoughts and sayings does that cock from Jerusalem still have to crow for us, in this society, for Christ and our spiritual life?
What remains of us, madam, when we are faced with that reality?
Questions and Answers Part 1, 1950
Jozef Rulof thought himself free and empty, by experiencing and finishing all his thoughts:
But how do I learn to think?
Now we can learn to think humanly, physically, socially.
We can start to think spiritually.
I imagine, I feel millions, billions of processes, and I have experienced everything, experienced, experienced, expanded, finished from a to z for the cosmos, for the soul, for the life, for the life of feeling, for craziness, psychopathy, for the planets and stars.
I am so heavily cosmically loaded, sir, there is not one wrong thought in me which could disturb me.
I am as empty as anything.
I am completely empty, empty.
Questions and Answers Part 4, 1952
Many people cannot think properly because they are full of unfinished thoughts:
(Lady in the hall): ‘How can you think if you are empty?’
How can you think then if you are empty?
Madam, you are all full.
You are a thousand times full of something which you do not finish.
Questions and Answers Part 4, 1952
Jeus (Jozef Rulof) is already taught from childhood to finish all his thoughts, so that later he cannot be disturbed by a mountain of unfinished thoughts:
You see, Jeus, you must now think for that purpose.
You must finish everything completely, or there will be trouble, your thoughts will pile up, you will be faced with a pile of unprocessed thoughts.
You will then carry on with thoughts which demand experience, and you cannot do that, but sooner or later we will reach a dead point.”
Jeus of Mother Crisje Part 3, 1952
Master Alcar has prevented Jeus from absorbing social ideas at school:
The master wanted him to learn nothing as a child. A school would not be necessary for him, and it would make him unsuitable for mediumship.
Master Alcar prevented that.
He knew where the child would be born. The highest masters on this side could see it and took him to this soul life, which could be found amongst all those millions on earth.
This was a revelation for the master.
He sees a little village before him, a lovely nature, and now knows that he will be able to do everything for the instrument.
Spiritual Gifts, 1943

Ancient Egypt

In the temples in Ancient Egypt people knew that only naturally talented people had a chance of being developed into a powerful priest, because they had already built up the necessary powers for this in past lives:
Only those naturally gifted persons possess these powers and qualities, which cannot be learned.
Between Life and Death, 1940
With a spiritual concentration, priest Dectar closed off the past of his pupil Venry, so that Venry could begin completely empty with his training.
Venry had to temporarily forget everything that he had experienced before his entry into the temple, so that he would not be disturbed in anything:
But especially because we have to start completely empty and not there where there is plenty of light in you.
Thus, all the events you have experienced,
all those years I must either eliminate or cut off.
Now that I know what awaits you and what your life was like, I will temporarily cut off all those experiences, and we shall begin at the moment you came to me.
From that moment on your development commenced.
Everything else you will forget for the time being, Venry, because there may not be anything in you to disturb your new life.
We shall proceed from a darkness, which you will experience as an emptiness.
Only these thoughts and feelings may now be within you and you surely realize that this is only possible with our help.
Between Life and Death, 1940
The priest was taught to get a wild animal under control by means of a connection of feeling.
That control had to be increased so far that the priest could stop a wild animal during its attack:
Have you not stopped the panther when he was about to pounce upon his prey, a young child?
Have you not prevented the fight between the lion and the tiger by your will and power?
Between Life and Death, 1940
Dectar tells his pupil Venry that the priest who left his body could also experience spiritual unrealities as a result of his yearning for the ‘great wings’, by which people meant experiencing the universal truth:
“All of us can descend into the waters, Venry, but it is not so simple to explain all that life.
There was a priest who could explain much, but afterwards it appeared that it did not belong to reality and it was all of no importance.
We must be able to establish that, Venry, and to follow all these worlds, otherwise, we do not get to know the laws.
The things he had declared during the first sessions, and which had been miraculous to the masters afterwards turned out not to belong to reality.
The pharaoh was furious and that is not good for Isis.
Other Temples were ruined because of it.
What we collect, must have reason for existence, otherwise, we cannot proceed.
If you can look into reality there, it will give power to Isis and all of us; however, one’s own thoughts are useless here.
There were priests who had received beautiful gifts, and they thought they saw all those activities, but that was only their imagination.
A later research brought to light that they had spoken nonsense, of which they had not been aware.”
“Surely that can be seen, Dectar?”
“No, dear friend.
They see and experience a world, they see all that life before them, and yet it is only appearance.
Their vanity, greed and desire to possess the great wings are to blame for it.
They all received their castigation and some of them were killed.
We have been able to follow all this feeling and perception, Venry.
The possession of gifts is the greatest treasure the Gods can give us, human beings. However, it is disastrous, Venry, to imagine that you possess them and to live in thought the way they want to see it and conceive it.
Then we will all perish.
The masters are very docile, but woe to those who imagine they see what does not actually belong to reality, they destroy themselves.”
Between Life and Death, 1940
If a priest reached the highest, he was worshipped as a deity:
The great people of the earth longed for this.
Egypt did everything in order to experience this Divine unity and people also came that far.
A priest, you know that for sure, was a Deity there!
The Cosmology of Jozef Rulof Part 1, 1944
The high priests had devoted dozens of lives to uncovering the truth:
And ten grams of sensitivity for this, you can experience thirty lives for that, before you possess that feeling.
Questions and Answers Part 6, 1951

Grade of feeling

In the first sphere of light the human being begins to feel how important it is to be true oneself in all the thoughts and actions:
At the Other Side in the first sphere, when you are there, then you have to bow for everything.
There are – I explained that to you, I connected you with those lives – no longer any wrong thoughts in the human being.
One wrong thought kicks you out of the first sphere.
No, that sphere already dissolves for you.
And what do you do now?
Can you bow?
Do you bring harmony with your inner life?
Do you come to friends and acquaintances and do you bring the wisdom of life there and the true joy for the philosophical system, which you are therefore yourself, which takes you to the love?
When do you experience the true love?
Does it go in your left hand today anddoes it pass into your right hand tomorrow and then just go?
You are faced there for the first time with the first foundations, and that is – now we come to the wordbook – and that is: are you really true?
Are you truth in everything?
Are you harmonic for millions of laws of life?
Are you just for every thought?
Can you accept a mistake?
Or do you already lay another vision there in order to obscure, to shroud the mistake?
Can you really say openly and honestly: “Yes, I was wrong”?
Because then you can continue.
Lectures Part 2, 1951
In the temples on earth an adept could only begin with the spiritual development when he stopped with material thinking:
If you learn to think, if I could give you a lecture, if I could accept you as followers, and you were with me every day, then we would go walking.
What did Socrates do with his pupils?
How did Ancient Egypt build up that culture, that consciousness?
How does Tibet live?
What kind of life of feeling do you have?
What do you think about a temple life, a temple existence in Tibet, British India, India?
That people speak to you day and night.
People are silent there for years and years, and then people wait for you, what you feel.
And if you talk materially again then they let you wait another two years.
In this way people had to wait fourteen and twenty years before they received the first word.
It is up to yourself ... you have that ...
Questions and Answers Part 5, 1950
In order to be able to experience the truth, Jozef Rulof had to release himself from all the material thinking:
He now knows that Master Alcar is cosmically conscious and that he will experience Divine truth, because he can now already orientate himself.
He can, if he wants – and that is no longer necessary – make comparisons with the earth because he knows now where he lives.
He looks and he looks, and he knows the power of this light.
He sees light because he is light.
If there was to be one wrong thought in his life then Master Alcar would be powerless and would say: “What can I hope to achieve with you?
The state of purity is situated where we are going.
There everything is love, so you must free yourself from all the material thinking.
There can only be love in you, wanting to serve, giving birth and creating.”
Are you now – you will make comparisons – are you now ready to climb with masters, to write books, to receive books if you just want to accept one little lie?
You see now, you now already feel what is required of you as a human being on earth if you will experience and receive this.
Then you will really have contact too.
But one wrong word, even if the human being does not even know that himself – and that is of course much worse, because you shall now be conscious in your thinking and your feeling – if you know that you are wrong and you think that you can give a human being that, as happens on earth anyway, you attune yourself to a terrible darkness.
And now work out all the things for sale in this area in the world and in your society.
Lectures Part 3, 1952
The universal truth is distinguished in the fourth sphere of light:
“It is my aim”, Master Alcar says, “to bring your life to spatial unity.
We will experience the Divine revelations for the astral and material cosmos.
By means of this you will receive your cosmic consciousness.
If you can lay these foundations, no matter how it is spoken on earth to your life and personality, André, later you can consciously attune yourself to a law and only then the law of life will speak for your being and personality and you will be one with everything.”
If love, harmony, understanding lives in you, or you will not experience any contact.
Is that not true?
“Then you no longer need to look for the Divine laws, no, you beat them away from your life.
But if you are ready, then at the same moment, wherever you are and attune yourself, then the life will speak to you and will now tell you about the own obtained spiritual and material evolution.”
A flower does that, the water does that.
A dog did that, a cat did that, the night did that, the sun, moon and stars did that; everything now starts to speak and only because you are in harmony.
If there are now lies, if there is deception, then you do not have that rarity in you, because your Deity is now the foundation in order to experience that unity.
“And”, Master Alcar says, “we had to master that and everyone in the Spheres of Light, possesses that, the fourth sphere only places it in your hands.”
When you are in the fourth sphere then you are a cosmically conscious being, then you are a spiritual unity, then you are really sweet.
Lectures Part 3, 1952

To the earth

Then the unrealities which were lived in for millions of years will be cleared away:
And then we enter the spiritual grade of life for the human being, for the animal and for the space.
And then the sun is different, then the human being is different, then people on earth know that there is life behind death.
Then the psychologist knows the spirit and the personality, then the human being knows how he must live and then ...?
Yes, only then that first Adam and Eve fall down, only then you can take away those pedestals.
And then mankind sees and then the individual sees that there was living for millions of years, that there was thinking in an invisible world, in an unreality and that only now the possibility, the hour of consciousness has come in order to lay those new foundations for himself.
Lectures Part 2, 1951
By means of the books by the masters, we can gauge the wisdom of Jozef Rulof (Jeus of mother Crisje):
Just believe it!
You can know, since you were given the books.
Because of this wisdom you can gauge Jeus of mother Crisje.
Just make your comparisons, we will later talk through Jeus, and then you will be faced with the masters of space, and your questions, whatever they are, will be answered cosmically conscious!
If it does not mean anything to you, then all of this is not yet intended for your life!!
Jeus of Mother Crisje Part 3, 1952
We can compare that wisdom with what all the great ones on earth brought:
Do you not believe this?
I will explain and prove that to you by means of wisdom.
But if you can make comparisons for yourself with the wisdom of all the great ones who lived on earth, then you can check me, after all, can’t you?
Is that not simple now?
The Cosmology of Jozef Rulof Part 2, 1944
You see, in this way you get feeling, in this way you get space, in this way you get space.
And then you should just compare the books with the books which have been written in this area by people on earth.

Via the technical instrument, The University of Christ will soon be able to bring the complete universal truth to earth.
Then the masters will speak directly to mankind:

Finally you will begin with that true building up.
You will become truth, justice, harmony and love.
