Hafed starts his spiritual development teaching:

Good afternoon and God bless you, my children

I thought that this afternoon we may have questions and answers.  I wish you to settle down and for two or three minutes think about questions that you would like to ask.  I do not want any questions dealing with how or when this planet of yours is to come to an end.  I wish to keep it only on spiritual matters and on the level that you have been taught over the course of many months.

Question:

The Bible says it is better to give than receive.  It seems to me that giving and receiving are the wrong way round.

Hafed:

Well whichever way we look at it, it doesn’t matter much so long as the process of the law, which governs giving and receiving is in operation.  Margaret has asked a question regarding giving and receiving and she thinks that you have to receive before you can give.  Is that what you are asking sister?

Comment and Supplementary Question:

No, not really.  It seems to me that we have little to give of our own, but if God wants us to give, He provides us with the information to pass on and in our giving, we are receiving.  We are so fortunate to receive what He has given because we don’t lose it; it stays with us.  But what I want to know is there any more to it than that.

Answer from Hafed:

What you must realise is that you have to rise to a certain degree of spiritual awareness before you can receive and before you can give.  Cast your minds back over the years and you must surely realise that now you are in a much better position to understand that you can only give what you have already received.  You cannot give anything that you do not have and the gradual process of evolving over those years has lifted your mind, heart and soul nearer to that quality of spirit that God wishes to see all of His children expressing.

When you have reached that point where you can give what you have already received, you have grown in the likeness of the child that God seeks you to be.  A person pretending to serve God, because they wish to have the limelight cast upon them, is not in a state of grace that fills their mind with light.  The truth of God has not been invested within them and their mind is still in darkness.  How then is it possible for them to give anything of light and spiritual truth to others, when they are incapable of receiving for themselves?  You have to progress to that point where spiritually you have become at one with your heavenly Father.

When the same qualities of meekness, gentleness, love, understanding, tolerance and forgiveness, now abound within you.  Those qualities are indeed what you are giving, for God will show you how great they are to possess.  They enrich your mind and fill your life with true happiness, so God gives them where there will be no waste and where He knows they will be received and be given to others.  God is the beginning of the giving and you are the receiver and also the giver.

You give what you have received out of love for your brothers and sisters.  From the light and truth within you that speaks to you of God.   Do you understand that?  Do you see where it is more than a question of giving and receiving?  It means the person who is giving has reached that stage of spiritual light where they are capable of receiving.  Many have asked the question is it better to receive than to give?  Well of course it is better to receive than to give because if you don’t receive how can you give?  Does that answer your question?

Comment:

Yes, thank you.

Question:

I go to various churches to offer healing but there is one church where I feel uncomfortable and I can’t get up and heal in it.  I don’t feel right in it and the people there don’t give proper help to anybody.

Hafed:

If you feel uncomfortable anywhere you should not return, it is a way of your inner eye telling you that this is not the right place.  So you must depart and not go back anymore.

Comment:

I haven’t been back again, but how is it that some people won’t help others?   They pray and tell God that they love Him, yet they do not help His  flock.

Hafed:

Well that can be accounted for in many ways.  Perhaps they just want people to see and hear them praying so that they may be perceived as a wonderful person.  They are not capable of doing these things and their reason for being there is different to yours.  They wish to be known as something that they are not.  They try to disguise themselves and of course if that is the case, they will not receive anything.  You will find such people in many of your spiritual churches but a great many of them are not worthy to be called the servants of God and neither do they search to be servants of God.  They search to be the servant of spirit and as there are masses of spirits, with good and bad intentions, you will always find someone that will be willing to guide and instruct you, but not always along the right path.  Do you understand?

When you come to understand more deeply the ways of God and the Laws of God, then those people stand out; very much so.  They should not be where they are and they should not be in a place that is in the public eye.  The true servants of God are those who teach and have humility, for no man can serve God without humility.

They either do these things for money or to be in the limelight, so others might say they are a wonderful person.  There are many of them who are at the top of your so-called religion.  That is why they are at the top, because it is where they wish to be and they are quite prepared to tread upon anyone who is in their way.  No, you must be able to see things in a much clearer light so that you may know who is speaking the truth and who is speaking for their own grandeur.

Question:

My question is to do with the Circle and it is in three parts.  Last week young Douglas was given a reading from a spirit who called himself Lazarus.   In essence it said that the brothers and sisters of our Circle meet when we sleep and also Jesus comes to that Circle.  So the first part of my question is to ask you to tell us more about that.  The second part of my question is to ask whether are you happy with the progress that our Circle is making and thirdly can you please tell us what more we can all do to progress ourselves?

Hafed:

Yes, you do meet when you sleep.  You know very well that while the body may sleep the soul cannot sleep, for the soul is eternal.  Therefore only the body rests and the soul travels on, into the world of spirit.  You are brought over to the other side of life to meet together with many of your own teachers and me.  We talk and explain things that you do not understand in your physical lives.  In many cases you are not ready to understand these things in the physical, so we prepare you for the unavoidable events that are to come into your life, which perhaps will cause you much grief.

We do this when we all come together by speaking to you of the event that is to come.  We try to make it easier than it would otherwise have been, for the shock would have been too great for your soul to bear alone, but because the soul has been forewarned it is able to absorb a lot of the shock.  These events come into your life; some have already happened whilst others have yet to happen.  Of course I am not going to explain what they are, for you must wait for that time to come.

We also meet together so we may help your friends or relatives on Earth.  We also take you to those war torn countries, where we can help the children who have made the change called death, to come to an understanding about life.  To understand where they are now and that they will not be with their mother or father again.  We show you how it takes a long period of time (as you know time) to adjust the child to their new environment and conditions, but eventually bring them to a new understanding of why they are there.

We take you to the lower realms where we try to help those who have fallen from grace because they have committed unspeakable atrocities on Earth.  The cross they bear is weighing them down and they cannot raise themselves up.  We try through gentle persuasion to get them to see where they were wrong and how to put it right.  I want you to know that it is not just your Circle, for there are others from different parts of the world that also attend.  Needless to say they are not of a spiritualist order, but of another order.

They are also striving to lighten the minds of men, like you who are striving to progress back to God.  You know them very well, for you have been together before you were born here and they are greatly loved by you, as you are by them.  There is an army of souls who dwell in this world who meet together in that spirit life, which they once had before they left to be born here.  You come together.  Earlier in your question you asked about the Lord Jesus, so I tell you that all of this is in accordance with the light and love of Jesus and the instruction of Jesus.  All of you know and feel that.

Sometimes your lives become so confused and mixed up that you feel great hurt within yourself.  You think to yourself, “My God, where are you?  Why have you forsaken me?”  On those occasions we allow you to take back with you a feeling of where you have been and what you have been doing, in order to raise up your spirit and fill you with a new kind of energy and strength.  It is not a power that is going to change the problem around you, but it is an energy and strength that is going to lift you up, so you may defeat that problem.  This is what you have to do.   You have got to do that; not me, not God, not Jesus, but you!

It is a frailty within yourself that is letting you down.  This is how you make the spiritual progress that you have asked about, by coming face to face with these problems and overcoming them.  I am not talking of problems such as owing money and not being able to repay it, or not being able to find a place to live.  Rather I refer to the problem of frailties that are strong within you.  They could come from any one of those deceptions that life places upon you.  It could be of a sexual nature, drug taking, drinking alcohol, gambling or thinking nasty thoughts about other people.  It could be in any number of ways but nothing will change until you can overcome them.  What in effect happens is the imperfection within you draws other forms of trouble to you from the darker realms.  Forms of trouble that bring money problems, health problems, worry over your children.

In many ways, trouble can come and it is like a magnet.  When your obsessions become greater than God within you it is because you are outside of the Law of God.  It causes you to draw from the earthly man, not from the spiritual nature.  By following your frailties you place yourself under a whole different set of laws, which will cripple you in many ways, because they do not come from God who loves you.  They come from those who oppose and hate you.  That is the problem brother and you can see just how far above some you are, because you are here and the word of God is not a stranger to you.  Yet there are still frailties within you.

When you use that as a yardstick to measure against those who are not here, do not believe in God and commit all kinds of atrocities; can you see why their lives are so dark and why there is so much hatred and poison within them because they live under a different law.  So then, the more you strive against the weaknesses and imperfections within you, the more you rise above it and the closer you come to the reality of God within you.

Then you will find the love and truth that is there and the perfection that begins to change your mind, outlook and reasoning.  You will find everything that your soul is searching for.   Then you are under God’s Law and when you are faced with trouble you can go to God and say Father will you help me please and he will help you.  But not until you have risen above the man made things, not until you have accepted the fact that you need his help to overcome the difficulties that lie within you.

So there you are, it is a Circle within a Circle.  Christ is always seeking out ways of helping you and others around you, in order that you may help others.  Even if it is only your presence with light and spiritual power, you can change the way people think and are willing to act in life.  It is all connected with the earlier giving and receiving discussion, is it not my son?

Question:

Yes, I would like to know why sometimes we can be easily controlled by spirit but at other times it is harder?

Hafed:

There are times when the physical body is not strong enough to be controlled; it is very lightly controlled.  There are times when the mind is tired and they find it terribly difficult to impress upon that mind, the words that they wish to give.  There are times when conditions of the world itself will influence control.  There are times when one wishes to come and speak, but the condition in that room is not right, or the one that you are talking to, is not right.  There are many different conditions that govern control and I have only stated a few.

Question:

Is it right then that you feel so let down because you have let them down?

Hafed:

Oh yes, if you do not feel that my child, then you do not really love them.  It is a sign of your progression my child when you feel that you have let them down and wished that you had been able to do so much better than you did, because you love them.

Question:

Can you describe to me how it will feel when I am controlled?

Hafed:

No.  My son, different people experience control in different ways.  I cannot say that there are two people in this room that would feel exactly the same.  Different factors come into play such as the extent of their development, spiritual awareness and understanding, the difficulties in their life, their spiritual gifts, which are there to be used but they are blind to.  It is not an easy question to answer, but controlled you will be.  It will happen, same as most of you in this room can be controlled.  Some of you will inevitably have inspirational thought, which is I suppose a very light but different form of control.

Question:

People operate on different levels of consciousness, don’t they?  Is that related to spirituality?

Hafed:

Oh yes.

Question:

Was there a different kind of consciousness many years ago, where people could relate directly to God at that time?

Hafed:

There is just the one law that governs the consciousness of God and that is the law that states that you must all reach God through the same way.  Through your experience of life, the hardships that you suffer on the way and the recognition that love is the only way in life.  Then our consciousness gathers momentum, by becoming increasingly aware of the need for God in our life.  I speak of the consciousness that belongs to the greater consciousness of God.  Each one of us has evolved to a different level of that consciousness when we are born.  The stage we have reached will govern our level of consciousness.

Question:

So you could almost swap the word consciousness for spirituality?

Hafed:

Oh yes, because spirituality is a substance, or a power that envelops the conscious thoughts and makes them worth more than those who are more conscious of their physical side of their life.  The greater the love and awareness you have, the higher will be your consciousness.  And the greater will be your ability to express the gifts of God while here on Earth.  Sanity you see comes into all of this because the lower the spiritual consciousness, the closer you are to insanity.  Your mind can only be governed by your way of thinking, which is to a higher or lower degree, according to the spiritual awareness that is in your consciousness.

Consciousness then is part of your soul and your spirit.  When you look at the turmoil that some lives are in, where they have no regard for life whatsoever, but only to fulfill their satisfaction.  It may be greed for money, power or for sexual satisfaction but it is the lowest form of consciousness.  It is a consciousness that tells you that you are alive but nothing else.

It only seeks for the fulfilment of their desires, which are of an earthly nature.  And they must grow away from this you see.  In this world there are many of God’s children who are on that level of progression, very close to border of insanity.  When they begin to recognise love and their ability to love, they grow in a different kind of awareness, not for self but for others.

We, who are here in this room, have a consciousness that is infinite.  It reaches out to the great spirit of God and draws to itself that great warmth and knowledge of God.  Little by little that filters into our minds and changes our views and outlook and gives us a deeper insight of the meaning of life.  There is a stage of being that doesn’t even recognise life, for there is no consciousness of life.  It is because they have sunk so low into the abyss of darkness and cannot rise to capture that magic which is life itself.

Question:

If those who are bordering on insanity are of a spiritually low level, does it mean that they were born like that?  If so, it’s not anybody’s fault that the Earth is in the state it is in, because they can’t help being low, they haven’t evolved to a high level?

Hafed:

That is not quite right, but there is a lot to be said, in what you have raised.  The answer is to be found in the way that man brings up his children, which hides the face of God.  He does not teach them in the ways that God wants him to and so that deepens the darkness and moves them closer to insanity.  Instead their minds are on that level, where they abuse life and other people’s lives.  If in the beginning they had been taught about God, their relationships and about love towards their parents and friends, then the light would have began to rise within them and it would have awoken a different type of life.

Question:

But what happens if their parents and predecessors before them are all of a low spiritual level?

Hafed:

It is unlikely for that to be so and you must realise that God is not unjust.  We do see these problems and because of it, we usually send a higher soul into those surroundings.  He is someone that uplifts the family because he comes with love and grows with that awareness of love.  He will teach his parents, not as I teach you, but through his actions and the things he says and does.  They will be able to see, through him, that there is a better way to live their lives.

Question:

So how is it then, that there are so many on a low level?

Hafed:

You must realise that the opposition is great.

Question:

So they attack the high soul?

Hafed:

Yes they attack the high soul.

Question:

And they often succeed?

Hafed:

Often they succeed.  You believe there is no war going on in your country, but there is a war going on between good and evil.  This war has been going on in the world of spirit and in the world in which you live for centuries.  At the present moment the battle is being raged and the darker forces are winning.  Do you see?  But as I have said in the past, it is also one of the reasons why God, in his great love, will not permit this world to continue in that way.  He will bring that condition to an end and raise up salvation in His people.  Then the Golden Age will begin and we will see a different kind of world.

Don’t forget that you are all being opposed and all of you are being fought by the forces of evil.  They are striving to raise up your frailties, so they may separate you from God.  The more you express those frailties, the more you become conscious of how wrong you are and that separates you from God and will eventually be your downfall.

I must go now.  Goodnight to all of you.

It only seeks for the fulfilment of their desires, which are of an earthly nature.And they must grow away from this you see.In this world there are many of God’s children who are on that level of progression, very close to border of insanity.When they begin to recognise love and their ability to love, they grow in a different kind of awareness, not for self but for others.

We, who are here in this room, have a consciousness that is infinite.It reaches out to the great spirit of God and draws to itself that great warmth and knowledge of God.Little by little that filters into our minds and changes our views and outlook and gives us a deeper insight of the meaning of life.There is a stage of being that doesn’t even recognise life, for there is no consciousness of life.It is because they have sunk so low into the abyss of darkness and cannot rise to capture that magic which is life itself.

Question:

If those who are bordering on insanity are of a spiritually low level, does it mean that they were born like that?If so, it’s not anybody’s fault that the Earth is in the state it is in, because they can’t help being low, they haven’t evolved to a high level?

Hafed:

That is not quite right, but there is a lot to be said, in what you have raised.The answer is to be found in the way that man brings up his children, which hides the face of God.He does not teach them in the ways that God wants him to and so that deepens the darkness and moves them closer to insanity.Instead their minds are on that level, where they abuse life and other people’s lives.If in the beginning they had been taught about God, their relationships and about love towards their parents and friends, then the light would have began to rise within them and it would have awoken a different type of life.

Question:

But what happens if their parents and predecessors before them are all of a low spiritual level?

Hafed:

It is unlikely for that to be so and you must realise that God is not unjust.We do see these problems and because of it, we usually send a higher soul into those surroundings.He is someone that uplifts the family because he comes with love and grows with that awareness of love.He will teach his parents, not as I teach you, but through his actions and the things he says and does.They will be able to see, through him, that there is a better way to live their lives.

Question:

So how is it then, that there are so many on a low level?

Hafed:

You must realise that the opposition is great.

Question:

So they attack the high soul?

Hafed:

Yes they attack the high soul.

Question:

And they often succeed?

Hafed:

Often they succeed.You believe there is no war going on in your country, but there is a war going on between good and evil.This war has been going on in the world of spirit and in the world in which you live for centuries.At the present moment the battle is being raged and the darker forces are winning.Do you see?But as I have said in the past, it is also one of the reasons why God, in his great love, will not permit this world to continue in that way.He will bring that condition to an end and raise up salvation in His people.Then the Golden Age will begin and we will see a different kind of world.

Don’t forget that you are all being opposed and all of you are being fought by the forces of evil.They are striving to raise up your frailties, so they may separate you from God.The more you express those frailties, the more you become conscious of how wrong you are and that separates you from God and will eventually be your downfall.

I must go now.Goodnight to all of you.
