Wasn't Carlos Castaneda quite promiscuous? Did he not believe his own writings?
Here are some interesting things about him.
He definately doesn't seem like a reliable source considering the wickedness that he dealt with as seen in the link above. That being said, I have written these words from Selassie I many times.
By the word "neutral" We do not, of course, mean that abstention from political activity which has been for so long the hallmark of a Switzerland. We can no more refrain from political activity in the year 1961 than man today can voluntarily refrain from partaking of the radioactive fall-out which will be bestowed upon him should a nuclear holocaust erupt on this globe. Nor does neutrality mean that without taking sides, we content ourselves with urging that the powers most intimately concerned negotiate in good faith to the solution of the issues in dispute between them; we have passed the point where prayerful pleading serves any purpose other than to debase those who thereby abdicate any responsibility or power to influence events.
To be neutral is to be impartial, impartial to judge actions and policies objectively, as we see them either contributing to or detracting from the resolution of the world's problems, the preservation of peace and the improvement of the general level of man's living conditions. Thus, we may find ourselves now opposing, now supporting. now voting with, now voting against, first the East, next the West. It is the worth of the policies themselves, and not their source or sponsor, which determines the position of one who is truly neutral.
This, We maintain, is the essence of non-alignment. Those who would righteously denounce one side on every major problem or issue while reserving nothing but praise for the other cannot claim to be non-aligned, nor can those whose policies are shaped for them elsewhere and who wait patiently to be instructed whether they are to be for or against be called uncommitted.
When I look at the concepts he speaks about regarding sex and offspring, I don't see them as true.
Here is one thing I found
You neednít think this a puritanical attitude toward sex. There is nothing wrong with manís sensuality. Itís manís ignorance of and disregard for his magical nature that is wrong. Itís a mistake to waste recklessly the life-bestowing force of sex and not have children, but itís also a mistake not to know that in having children one taxes the glow of awareness. Seers have seen that on having a child, the parentsí glow of awareness diminishes and the childís increases. In some supersensitive, frail parents, the glow of awareness almost disappears. As children enhance their awareness, a big dark spot develops in the luminous cocoon of the parents, on the very place from which the glow was taken away. It is usually on the midsection of the cocoon. Sometimes those spots can even be
seen superimposed on the body itself.
If a person has Faith in the Most High, having children will make them stronger and their glow become brighter.
Here is a Reasoning I made before that might shed some light as to what actually happens regarding people's Irits after having children.
RasTafarI people know about Rising up the Irits and Rising up the Fire within themselves, and after the Irits or Fire are built up enough, pushing the Irits or Fire outwards, to accomplish the Works intended.
I Reasoned about that a month ago in regards to Fire in the Reasoning:
Fire is Good
When a person has children, things change because the person is no longer just a body of themselves, but they and their Man or Woman are One, and their Children are also One with them.
At first, I didn't realize the significance of this Oneness in relation to Rising up the Irits or Blazing Fire. So for a long time I continued to Rise up the Irits and Fire just within Iself before pushing it out, and I noticed that it wasn't as strong as it was before I had a Child. At first I thought it was just because I was busy raising a child and I wasn't spending as much time Chanting and Rising the Irits. But then Selassie I put the Heights into I Mind to Sight that what I now must do is build up the Irits and Fire within the Oneness of I Empress, I Child and Iself, and then push it out.
When I did that, the increase in Strength of those Irits was so much Higher than they have been since I had a Child, and even Higher than they were before having a Child.
For those who have not already realized this. Try it and the I will Sight the difference in Strength. Sight and Feel the Oneness between the I and the I family, and build up the Irits within that Oneness.
