Writing

And when Jozef has developed enough as a medium, Master Alcar can begin with his most important task: writing the spiritual-scientific books.
In this way, Alcar, as an astral-spiritual being, is capable of 'living' again on earth and writing books which are not influenced by the earthly thinking of Jozef Rulof.
For Jozef is not conscious of what is being written during the writing.
When he awakens from the trance afterwards and reads what has been written it is also a revelation for him how those words were put on paper.
Because of the deep grade of trance Alcar disengages every influence from Jozef, so that wisdom from the world after death can come to earth in a hundred percent pure state.
This highest grade of mediumship is very rare.
However, this ‘letting go of the body’ is more difficult for the medium than the natural falling asleep.
After all, the human personality is completely fused with the nervous system.
Day in day out our thoughts pass through our nervous system and we make our bodies move by our will.
By means of this our bodies are completely attuned to our own will, to our own life of feeling, to our own thoughts.
In this way we develop a conscious but also an unconscious control over our bodies.
Jozef has to let go of that control and that fusion of soul and body, all those nerve tissues must be freed from his human personality, so that Alcar can take over this nervous system.
To make this possible Alcar already began with building up this mediumship during the first years of Jozef’s life.
Alcar had to prevent the personality of the medium from fusing too much with his body.
Alcar already sometimes released Jozef from his body as a child, and he gave him the ability of ‘disembodying’ as a spirit.
By means of this Alcar can later give the adult Jozef the ability of disembodying regularly and developing spiritually.
During the trance he lets Jozef disembody from his material body so that Jozef can see and act as a spiritual personality in the astral life, the life of the spirit.
Jozef considers this gift of leaving the body the best aspect of his mediumship.
In ‘A View into the Hereafter’ Alcar explains to Jozef why this is so important:
We will guide the people onto this beautiful path, so that they may develop and see the light in the Hereafter when they die on earth.
A View into the Hereafter, 1936
Man lives in matter, because of it and along with it, which causes him to forget the spiritual aspect, the beautiful part that must help man’s soul to grow.
And you’ll be surprised to hear that the soul is kept from growing because man refuses to accept the reality of a life after death.
A View into the Hereafter, 1936
Alcar lets Jozef experience everything in the spirit first and then what he experienced is recorded in writing.
In this way Jozef can also ‘represent’ the books, because he has experienced everything himself.
And when Alcar and Alcar’s leaders start to build up their university of spiritual-scientific knowledge in 14 titles, Jozef can grow along with the depth of each new book.
This also explains why the next book goes even deeper into the spiritual laws which are the basis of their and our earthly life, because in this way it keeps pace with what Jozef can deal with.
Master Zelanus, a spiritual leader of Jozef Rulof, says about this:
I have been connected to Jeus since his birth, so I know his inner life and know what to do.
However, Master Alcar himself is working on this and is laying the new foundations for writing.
Now Jeus gradually goes into a deeper trance; we ourselves can only write between the fourth and fifth grade of sleep, before that grade it is still merely under inspiration.
Jeus has reached this stage through Wolff, through painting.
Now we place him before the most difficult part, the easiest part for us, that is to say, we want to start immediately on the typewriter.
After all, the pen is part of yourself, it is in your hands, not so the typewriter and it is more difficult for a writer. Yet, for others the means of being able to concentrate free from everything and every contact, because the pen immediately influences the inner life, which immediately reacts to your thoughts, but cannot be an inspiration by any length.
Because you learned and have done that since childhood, you are influenced by your pen as a means of writing and we want to prevent that now.
So Jeus goes out and buys a typewriter for twenty-five guilders, a nice old one, which he does not have a clue about; but we do.
He has never sat behind a thing like that.
You can surely feel, we are deliberately taking him away from his own knowledge and skills, the less he knows, the better we can work through him.
You know about his youth; his time at school and what he learned in society, is nothing, he did not learn anything, nothing in order to be able to write now, he does not have any understanding of anything!
He cannot do it, he does not know it either, he did not learn it and now we also take his pen out of his hands, he is not allowed to be able to do anything for himself, and that is the most difficult part for him, but it will be easy for us, now we will not be faced with the material learned possession of your world.
It does not matter what that writing is like in the beginning, it will be everything when Master Alcar can determine the true occult through Jeus, that improving and polishing for the material will come later.
Jeus of Mother Crisje Part 3, 1952
