Mental Illnesses seen from the Other Side
Alcar, the spiritual leader of Jozef Rulof analyses the psychic problem in this book.
Alcar has obtained a grade in the spheres of light which is referred to as ‘master’.
This grade is granted to a spirit who can already fathom life on earth.
This grade can only be obtained after hundreds of years of study as a spiritual student.
Master Alcar gives a deep analysis of the psychic illnesses from astral life at a level which the official earthly psychology and psychiatry still has no knowledge of even in present times.
This book was written in the first half of the twentieth century, and uses the names for mental diseases used at that time.
In this way the book talks of ‘psychopathy’ or psychopath’.
In this book master Alcar exposes the real cause of this spiritual handicap, and explains why different grades or levels can be distinguished.
Psychiatry today distinguishes between neurotic and psychotic problems.
Translated into human terms people talk about ‘mild’ and ‘serious’ mental illnesses.
In the case of ‘mild’ problems master Alcar speaks, among other things, about ‘mental deficiency’.
He makes it clear that many psychological problems which people have to deal with find their origin in wrong views which disrupt the nervous system.
In this way ‘eternal damnation’, which is or was preached by certain religions, has left serious marks behind in the thinking of millions of people, who feel troubled as a result of this and can no longer summon any life force in order to improve their so-called ‘sinful life’.
The destructive influence of other delusions are also analysed in detail.
In this book master Alcar clearly shows how the greatest spiritual cause of nervous illnesses lay in the ignorance of spiritual realities.
As long as the human being cannot accept that he lives on after earthly death, and that the ‘spirits’ are in contact with earthly people in various ways, his thinking cannot evolve.
By means of numerous examples master Alcar show how many psychotic problems have to do with astral influence.
This negative influence of dark spirits can vary from slightly strengthening lower feelings in the earthly being, on the one hand, to the deepest grade of possession, on the other hand.
People used to talk here of madness, insanity or lunacy.
Master Alcar describes the causes and characteristics of this serious problem in great detail.
The reader is therefore advised to read ‘A View into the Hereafter’ and ‘The Origin of the Universe’ first, in order to be able to feel and understand all these spiritual laws better.
