origin, purpose or danger
Based on the books by Jozef Rulof.
How do various sub-personalities, each with their own character, occur within one human being, and do they have a purpose or do they form a danger?
‘Because why is the questioner in this hall and is he interested in a life after death and in looking back at past lives?’
The existence of various parts within one personality can be absolutely normal.
For instance, for a number of people a distinction can be made between the youth personality and the adult personality.
In the professional life this youth personality can be undesired because it can have unsuited habits, or it speaks a specific dialect.
After his youth, if someone moves to a different country where people speak a different language, the difference is usually even clearer.
When the immigrant wants to become integrated, he or she is faced with the task of building up a new personality or sub-personality in the new country that has been adapted to the customs of that country.
When people later visit their native region again, fortunately, the youth personality usually resurfaces automatically, which not only speaks the regional dialect, but is also recognized by family and friends.
Otherwise, people no longer feel ‘at home’ in the own native region.
In the books by Jozef Rulof, his youth personality is called ‘Jeus’.
Jeus speaks ‘Gelders’, a dialect from the east of The Netherlands.
After his youth, when Jeus moves to The Hague, a large city by Dutch standards in the west of the country, he must build up a new city personality there, which as ‘Jozef’ must learn standard Dutch and who as a taxi driver must master city manners.
Theo and Jack
Various adult personalities can also exist alongside each other within one human being.
These different parts of the personality can get in each other’s way or not get in each other’s way, and they can also complement each other.
For instance, in addition to his city sub-personality, Jozef also had a more spiritually oriented sub-personality which is called ‘André’ in his books.
André is his spiritual side, and he could develop himself to a great spiritual height, because he no longer needed to concern himself with the social life, which Jozef took charge of.
The name André comes from France, he was given that name during a past life in that country.
The personality from that past life is a sub-personality in his present life.
The books by Jozef Rulof also describe numerous other people who experienced several sub-personalities.
For instance, Theo in the book ‘Through the Grebbe line to Eternal Life’ describes how he gets to know his second personality Jack.
As a Dutch soldier, Theo has to fight in the Grebbe line, a front line in World War II.
When he roams round in that war violence, he feels that Jack comes up inside him.
This is another personality which he did not feel in that strength in his entire life.
Yet Jack does not feel strange to Theo.
Later, Theo learns that Jack is the name that he had in his past life.
Jack is his inner life from then, as he felt in his past life.
In the Grebbe line, when Jack takes over the day-consciousness, his body is torn apart by the explosion of a grenade.
And however strange this sounds to Theo, that is exactly for what purpose Jack was reincarnated.
Later when Theo looks back at his life, he is given the explanation from his father in the hereafter why this violent death took place.
Jack had been a psychiatrist, who was attuned to just one question his entire life: ‘Does the soul survive every physical shock?’
Jack had even already been struggling with this question for many lives.
As a scientist, he wanted to give mankind the answer to this question, because the eternal life after death of the soul would put all the confirmed knowledge in a different light.
However, it had become more than a scientific study, for his reincarnating inner life it had become a question which he could no longer free himself from.
Due to the continual focus on that one question, the soul of Theo sought out the situation itself, as a result of which the pressing question could be answered with the absolute certainty of the own experience.
Otherwise, the inner life would no longer be free from this, and the spiritual evolution of his soul would be at a standstill.
The personality which had to have this question answered was Jack.
Theo had never been interested in this question, he experienced life like a carefree child.
This is why at the decisive moment Jack as sub-personality arose in his consciousness, because it was his moment, his time, the reason why Theo had become a professional soldier.
Later, Theo sees that it was Jack who had made this choice of profession, without Theo being aware of it at that time, because then Jack still lay mainly dormant in his subconscious.
However, for this vital decision action was already taken from the inner life of Jack, because Jack was reincarnated for this purpose.
After Theo had processed his life in the hereafter, it is also Jack who takes charge as the leading personality.
Theo was only important for that one life, but he no longer has any further meaning for the spiritual development of his soul.
As Jack he has something to give mankind, he now wants to pass on his newly acquired knowledge to the world, so that the human being on earth also gets to know the immortality of the soul.
This is why, after the life of Theo in the hereafter, he prepares to later reincarnate on earth again, to then be able to deliver this proof as a scientist.
At the time of the explosion, Jack was present for seventy-five percent in the day-consciousness, intensely attuned to that one moment for which he came back.
At that moment, Theo only formed twenty-five percent of the day-consciousness, he saw everything as if in a dream.
In the hereafter Theo will sink away further, and Jack will devote the hundred percent power of feeling in order to serve mankind.
In the spheres of light in the hereafter, there is ultimately no place for several sub-personalities, which can only be useful for various periods or tasks in the life on earth, such as experiencing youth in a small village as opposed to dealing with the harsh society in the city, or combining a task and making amends.
Jack knows for sure that he will incarnate again, because he will make a contribution to the spiritual consciousness of mankind, and that mission has priority over the souls which only return to the earth in order in order to bring itself back into harmony with all the life by making amends.
Who within us is reading these articles?
At a contact evening, Jozef Rulof was asked the question how he could lose the wonderful priesthood from his past life as Dectar in Ancient Egypt during his later reincarnations.
Jozef replied that he has not lost that priesthood, but that it is still available as his sub-personality Dectar in his present life.
Jozef adds to this that the questioner can also research these realities within himself.
Because why is the questioner in this hall and is he interested in a life after death and in looking back into past lives?
Who is the person within the questioner who can think so smartly, who asks good questions and has a tremendous yearning to read the books by Jozef Rulof?
Is that the person who grew up in The Hague?
That person accomplishes a social job in which he is probably not so spiritually occupied as when asking Jozef questions.
And his youthful personality is probably not that interested in questions about reincarnation either.
Perhaps the questioner is rather someone from the temple from then, who now sees the opportunity in this hall to take up his spiritual study again and continue it.
How many sub-personalities can we distinguish within ourselves?
In this light we can research how much percent of our inner life already wants to take part in spiritual development.
And how many characteristics in us are already harmonically and universally loving.
How great is the part of our personality that already feels, thinks and acts in a sphere of light?
At another contact evening Jozef outlines a situation where a sub-personality comes up which can have a negative influence on the life cycle.
He talks about a woman who is no longer satisfied with her financial situation and who wants to see more money from her husband.
Someone from the nobility comes up in her, who wants to have money.
If she and her husband do not know any reincarnation, this can cause problems of course.
In the worst case, the woman will look out for another man who can give her more wealth.
Because as a lady of the nobility in her feeling she has a right to this, she can no longer manage with less.
It is only if they both understand that a past life has come up, which gives her these new feelings which were not there before, that this new sub-personality can be referred back to where he or she belongs, in the deep subconscious.
For this purpose, the woman must take control in her inner life, and limit the access of this sub-personality to the day-consciousness.
Because not every sub-personality can be used in this life, many parts are no longer usable and must be precisely let go of and transcended in order to be able to take a step further in the spiritual development of our soul.
Even greater problems can occur when influence comes from a personality which does not originate from our own subconscious, although people could first think that it is an own sub-personality.
Then the phenomenon can become sickly.
These problems are dealt with in the book ‘Mental illnesses seen from the Other Side’.
In the present-day psychiatry terms are used such as multiple personality disorder and dissociative identity disorder.
In the past people also spoke of a split personality.
Psychiatry and psychology still do not fathom these disorders, because science does not accept any life after death and any past lives.
Splitting of the personality
The books by Jozef Rulof also talk about the danger of an unconscious splitting of the personality, whereby an action only comes from a part of the personality, and the other parts are not conscious of that action.
For instance, the book ‘Masks and Men’ describes how the Dutch painter Vincent van Gogh committed suicide.
He reached a great height in his art, but reached and exceeded his experiences.
Then he reached for a revolver and shot himself through the head.
At that moment it was not his whole personality which was acting.
The trigger was pulled by ten percent of his personality at the most, the rest of his character did not take part.
As an artist, at that moment he did not know what he was doing.
Something rose from his subconscious that did not want to carry on living, but Vincent could not reason with this, he did not know his own reincarnation, he could not think in this, otherwise he would have been able to talk with that part of his personality that arose and then be able to give it the right place in his artist’s life, so that he would not have had to end his earthly life in this way.
Not only suicide can take place at ten percent of the personality, but also murder or other destructive actions.
That does not remove the fact that the human being will experience the consequences of these actions, because people cannot hide behind a part of their personality, people always remain fully responsible for their own deeds.
This is why it is so important to get to know all the parts of the personality, and to make sure that they come under one central management, a control that works for the own spiritual development instead of stopping that evolution.
That one self
When Jozef Rulof was faced with experiencing the deepest laws of the cosmology, he first had to integrate his sub-personalities so that he could devote the full hundred percent of his personality in order to feel these laws.
All the feeling that he could mobilize had to be focused on this task, all the thoughts had to start to serve this wonderful work.
Before his various sub-personalities were useful in order to each be able to specialize in a particular part of his life, but now all that power of feeling had to be combined.
Jozef says that we will all be faced with this task, for the last time when we want to enter the spheres of light.
There we can no longer start anything with various parts of our personality which each want to go in an own direction, there all the powers of feeling have to form part of that one self that makes us grow in consciousness and love.
