Be Ready to Leave at a Moment's Notice

When Moses went to the pharaoh and demanded that he "let my people go," what incentive did the pharaoh have to agree? The power was all on the side of the pharaoh. Moses couldn't fight him, but he could demonstrate his capacity to see through the illusion of the power game that kept the Hebrews enslaved and knew that our Creator is stronger than the illusion, and he also understood that there is always a backlash to the games.

The power games continue on until an innocent person is crucified, and then there is an immediate backlash. The power games never worked. They just seemed to work. The pharaoh saw it was in his best interest to have unlimited slaves at his command to build his grand project, but in fact, it was not in his interest to do so. What he was doing was against Universal Law, of "do unto others as you would have them to unto you," and he was fighting the Universe and he could not win. Moses could not convince the pharaoh of that, so it took the seven curses, based on the Seven Deadly Sins, to backlash on the pharaoh and to create a sense of equality.

The pharaoh was 180 degrees from where he thought he was.

The Egyptians played all seven power games. First there was war, and then genocide, which log-jammed the Hebrews, and then massacres to take what was theirs, and finally, with all that new wealth, the Hebrews were enslaved. 

To overcome slavery, you must have somewhere to go. In the American south, for example, prior to the Civil War, people who were sympathetic to the plight of the slaves formed the famous Underground Railroad, and many slaves were able to make their way north to freedom.

Like the Pharaoh, what seems to what we need to get our life is not necessarily in anyone's best interest. The third dimension is called The Illusion because in this dimension, we believe what we are doing will help us get our life. It oftentimes takes hitting the point of crisis, and even the end of life crisis, to let go of what can't help us and to turn around and find what can help us.

In the Illusion, we hold onto what cannot help us and we push away what can.

The parable of the Banquet Table is about the dimensions. the dimension are 90 degrees from each other, a paradigm shift in what we believe. In the third dimension, we are on the floor, like dogs fighting over crumbs that fall from the table, and we believe by playing the games we will win success. This is our life, and when we come to believe we cannot get our life, that is when we die. . The leg of the table represents the fourth dimension, and we know we can get our life, but we haven't figured out yet how to get it. The table top is the fifth dimension, and that is when we are working to create the life we want. It is the Rainbow that Noah was promised by God after the deluge had ended. We Walk the Rainbow to create the life we want. It represents the planning process, and if you know the root cause of a crisis, with the planning process, you can find the solution to any crisis.

The spiritual hierarchy has given us a series of books and booklets that are like a road map for walking the Rainbow. The Outline Series on Creativity includes a chart that explains the Seven Deadly Sins and how to recognize them in your own life. What is the ultimate conclusion of the games that each of us is playing?

Everyone plays the games. The games are bad, not the people. To create the life we want, we must stand on the principles of Creativity, and know where we are, where we are going, and how to get there. And, like Moses and the Hebrews, we must be ready to leave at a moment's notice.
