APPLYING WHAT WE KNOW 

The transcription of a talk given by Eugene Halliday 

At Parklands, Altrincham to members of Ishval on 2nd October 1983

The inertia of time-sequence thinking is nothing but a habit acquired in time. You think in a certain way because you are brought up in a certain type of society. Human beings condition each other as children and this inertia is an externally acquired habit. The problem is how do we get to initiative if we have fallen into a state of inertia. Most of the major religions have a story about a fall, the fall is quite a simple proposition. It consists in this; that a free intelligence makes a form or an idea and then identifies itself with the form and forgets that it made the form. This illustrates the fall from initiative to inertia. This talk uses the symbology of the cross to further make this clear. The failure of people with religious beliefs to apply their beliefs has been the clash between mental inertia and eternal spiritual truth. The reverberations of this clash affect us all as individuals and as members of society. This talk also has many very interesting references to symbols from a variety of major religions and points to a hidden unity within all religions.

CYCLIC LAW

CYCLIC LAW

The transcription of a talk given by Eugene Halliday 

At Parklands, Altrincham to members of Ishval

Cyclic Law is the big law. We are not training for time, we are training for eternity, we are working through time for the timeless for the absolutely permanent. We have got work to do as long as we have a physical body. If when we finish up on our deathbed we’ve accumulated enough directive forces in us to carry us into the next world with the right direction that is all we ought to hope for. Human birth is hard to get. To get into a human body and complete your evolution is very very great good fortune to ignore the opportunity is foolishness. To climb out of the dominion of cyclic law we must practice non-identification with it and to aid in this we must assert the opposite phase of the cycle. The aim is to be able to elevate or depress oneself at will in order to stay on the median line and not be subject to cyclic law. The first step is to think that cyclic law really exists and it is quite a good thing to stop it. The technique of stopping it is stating the opposite. To see summer in terms of winter is to see summer properly.

FATHERHOOD

FATHERHOOD

A synopsis of the talk given by Eugene Halliday

At Parklands, Altrincham to members of Ishval in 1976

The pytri, father in ancient Hindu and the patér of the Greeks and the pater of well-educated English boys are all the same. The word means put-power-differences, simply to differentiate power. Christ said, “Call no man Father on earth, you have one Father in Heaven”. Heaven is the place two powers meet and press. You have to believe that God who made the Universe, is your Father, because if you don’t believe it, the generative power in you will not be his. The Spirit “lusts against the flesh and the flesh lusts against the Spirit” There is a war in your body between egotism and its plans and real knowledge that we are in possession of the Infinite Power of God has given us to develop our talents. We have to choose. Whether you commit yourself to the finite or the infinite you will learn something worth learning. You are a father when you consciously, reflexively generate and put something into being that was not there before and you are a Master of Creative imagination when you know that you are able to imagine, create. We live in a field of Infinite power. This power is imagination. We have been conditioned by education into externalization to destroy our imaginative power because if we are really imaginative and creative, we cannot be controlled from outside.

HERE AND NOW

HERE AND NOW

A synopsis of the talk given by Eugene Halliday

At Parklands, Altrincham to members of Ishval on 2nd October 1983

Here is a spatial concept and now is a time concept, time always means energy expenditure. Time cannot be observed without release of energy, moment by moment so time as experienced by human beings, depends on energy emission by those human beings. It takes time to see space, so space, time and the energy required for perception cannot be separated. Space, Time, Power need to be considered as a trinity. Power can only be expended through time on a given space. A now only exists when energy is emitted from my energy store to my organs of perception, all ‘now” depends upon the fact we are emitting energy. Here is related to the locus in which the observer himself exists. Here, is right in the center of my observing consciousness.

You never make a decision in the whole of your life, about anything except in a here and now. The sages say “Live in the here and now “. That is in full sharp intensive awareness of the differences of power in all the beings presented within your field of experience. The great men of history all had one quality in common and that was they lived in the here and now. Any person who cannot get in the “here” and emit energy in the “now “ is at the mercy of any other person who can get in the “here and now”. How do we get in “here and now” there is only one reply to this, the answer is by doing it, by practising it, by remembering every moment this principle, that decision is here and now, not somewhere else.

ILLEGITMACY OF GOD

ILLEGITMACY OF GOD

A synopsis of the talk given by Eugene Halliday

At Parklands, Altrincham to members of Ishval

Despite its cryptic title this talk explores the inner meaning of the concept of Law and how God is beyond all limitations. God the Father is the creator of all laws yet remains free of any restrictions these laws may impose. The infinite power undulating not rotating is pre legal. The only valid law is a law that can enforce itself. The word law cannot be used unless there is a binding, and therefore the infinite force that is there prior to first ensphering or circumscribing process is pre legal. No man at any time has seen the father, this means that no finite sense organ can perceive an infinite field of power therefore the infinite prior to that ensphering process is not legal. Although there is only one supreme law, everything is made of cycles, of forces, there are many little laws and each law is effective at its own level. There are within the first sphere innumerable little spheres each one with the divine consciousness that is the property of the infinite and which cannot be destroyed. This is the supreme purpose to create an infinity of beings who know what they think, what they feel and what they will and will be absolutely self-determinant within the infinite. Every single human being in the world is a little sphere with an authority effective in so far as they comprehend the meaning of their own thought processes, control their own likes and dislikes and are able to compel themselves into action or to withhold from action at their own will.

INVOLUTION

INVOLUTION

A synopsis of the talk given by Eugene Halliday

At Parklands, Altrincham to members of Ishval

If evolution is taken to signify bringing something out from a situation or substance then we have to account for the qualities that emerge being in the substance from which they emerge. Involution is prior to evolution. We start with an Infinite field of Power in which Involution is a movement towards a center, evolution is a movement away from a center.  Both involution and evolution are inherent in ultimate reality, the infinite field is structured from eternity. The original reality from which we derive, in some mysterious way, is a field of intelligent energy, thinking, feeling and willing, self-condensing to make bodies. The whole process of the movement from the field into the body is called involution. The field from the point of view of physics being a space-time continuum of energy. All bodies are modalities of a continuum, the attributes of which must include thought, feeling, volition, coordination, and possible self-condensation, which we call incarnation. The talk also uses the symbol of the hand to create a mnemonic of the process with each of the fingers representing either Power, Form, Desire, Biofield and Physical body and how this symbol can be made to show the whole process.

YOGA

by Eugene halliday | audio file and transcript available

YOGA 

Yoga synopsis

A talk of about one and a half hours on the subject Yoga given in Liverpool in the early 1960s

The talk starts by looking at the origins of the word Yoga and the link to the word religion. Religion is a quite legitimate translation of the word Yoga. Religion means to yoke back to the source of being, the practice of Yoga is an attempt to return to the relationship that was once ours in the infinite and the Yogi aspires to join him or herself to infinite power. There is a discussion of philosophical basis of Yoga in India and an analysis of the terms used.

Yogis aim to become one with pure consciousness, pure consciousness is a continuum that precipitates forms within itself. The technique is to move backwards from object identification to identification with the source of all being. There is much else in the talk about universal substance, cosmic reason and Buddhi.
