Attaining and maintaining internal peacefulness in a chaotic world

The new spiritual teaching people arise in a world of great external chaos and conflicts, they will need to learn how to gain access to, attain and maintain, their internal peacefulness. We see various meditation groups and so-called mindfulness programs appearing, so many people are already recognizing the need to cultivate peacefulness within themselves.

There is very specific information from Billy Meier on individual, as well as group*, meditation practices that help the individual deal with negative conditions, feelings, emotions, traits and behaviors that have taken a foothold in their memory, or subconsciousness.

The Quiescent State

The two following excerpts from Meier’s writings (emphasis added) explain more about how to work with these situations, as volatile as the internal content may be, in a still or quiescent state.

From The Way to Live, page 394, verse 452:

“If one is still unaccustomed in regard to meditation, but is able to attain a state of deep stillness, then often this does not last very long, because, again and again, thoughts, feelings and emotions or impulsations, and so forth, arise. Such manifestations should be neither oppressed with Gewalt (violence) nor rejected; rather, they should simply be accepted in the flow of the pure awareness. It is the stillness which is important and the all-embracing, peaceful state of meditation done with dedication. All that which arises and manifests is nothing other than the everyday consciousness’s own radiation, which can be brought under control through a further dedication to the meditation, whereby, however, coercion must not be exercised, rather stillness and pure perception in the peaceful state. It can thereby be advantageous to immediately follow the arising constructs back to the root of their origin in order to dissolve them there. If the unshakable stability of the perception and view is really embodied, regardless of whatever arises, then, in the meditation, everything becomes fathomed in truth without the possibility of distraction; consequently, delusions no longer come forth from any kind of things, and none can occur anymore.”

From And there shall be peace on Earth:

“Problems of any kind, be it fear, hatred, revenge, cowardice, terror, lust for power and retaliation, or whatever else, cannot and may not be simply filed or buried in one’s memory or subconsciousness, with the hope that they simply disappear. In fact, the problems remain existent and maliciously push into the foreground again and again causing uncontrollable harm. In the worst case the consequences will be war, hatred, vindictiveness, murder, greed for power, and striving to gain power; as well as terror, fanaticism, or homicide of the most evil form. To fight against these evil forms of degenerations is more or less unsuccessful. Thus it is not possible to simply file away these problems in one’s memory or subconsciousness, for they need a clear resolution and dissolution. The only way that this can happen is by leading the existing problems into an acute state, where their particulars and subtleties can be consciously examined, analysed, cleared up and dissolved. Putting problems into an acute state means that problems -whatever they are, whether they relate to themselves or to a single fellow-human being, or to several of them, or to an entire nation, the environment, or even to the whole of mankind – are tackled in the way whereby they are consciously brought forward and made to exist in the present where they are recognisable and acute. In this way they become highly active and break forth like an explosion. However, that has to happen in a quiescent state, in where the problems that are becoming acute become mobile only in the thoughts and feelings and do not break out externally. The problems, therefore, are not becoming externally effective but are only directed inwards, towards the thoughts, feelings and emotions. And as the problem’s eruption takes place consciously occurring only in the inside, since there were no external factors present such as other people, activities, situations, etc., this is called a quiescent state; because quiet prevails externally and the fight only takes place internally. The problems don’t have to be fought and overcome in an external condition that is unreal, for they are not externally existent. Thus this process only takes place internally acute in thoughts, feelings and emotions, and can be consciously controlled, analysed, worked upon and dissolved iota for iota. Therefore, all emotions as well as problems of any kind are in an external quiescent state when they are placed into an acute condition in the innermost self. Which is why it is also taught that emotional problems and any other forms of problems can only be worked upon and dissolved in their quiescent state.”

A Personal How-To Instructional

In 1990, I created the Consciousness Awareness Workshop based on these principles (though I hadn’t read and learned them from the spiritual teaching yet at the time). I began doing private and group sessions in this process, which I originally called Standing in Spirit. I was also invited to teach it to corporate and government leaders in Europe, by a consultant to Princess Diana, because of its stress-relieving and clarity-enhancing benefits. Some of the participants corresponded with me for years afterwards.

When I asked Meier if I should separate this work from my representation of the case and the spiritual teaching, he requested that I include it and instruct people in the process at every opportunity. This instructions, which is now available on a DVD, promotes the attainment and practice of the quiescent state, leading to it becoming more of the daily norm; a preferred state to live in the more familiar we become with it.

Special Offer

So, I invite you to get the Consciousness Awareness Workshop and you’ll also get a FREE bonus DVD, The Spiritual Teaching in Everyday Life. And certainly, The Way to Live is a profound and beautiful book that instructs, with great clarity, in exactly what the title portends.

  • Considering the past 5 weeks experience I have been thinking much about what you wrote in this blog post….will be getting the workshop….thank you for such a timely post 🙂

  • I would be lost w/o my daily 60 minutes of reading German/English FIGU books, and saying German prayers to my inner world (consciousness). I often achieve a quiescent meditative state when I read the books. I spend some minutes after the atomic clock hits 60 minutes passed, to reflect on what I read.

    I can profess that I have attained much positive developmental progress since studying the spiritual teaching (the change in thoughts has given my life new honourable meaning), and I can attest to the validity of the laws and recommendations of Creation. 🙂

  • In this changing world of upcoming disaster, old virtues such as fairness, honour, logic, love, and knowledge may become more desirable by terrestrials hungry for something substantial. Just ask any student who can’t live without the virtues, this is a changing world. 🙂

  • The Quiescent State sounds a like a script from a Philip Marlowe private detective investigation, however he always seeks to stepping into the wrong situation only to be clobbered by goons into unconsciousness. That’s how he resolved his cases for his clients and he always won in the end with all expenses paid and a fair sized retainer usually.

  • Thank you Michael. This was pleasant reading indeed. Love your blog.
    Been thinking about it for a long time, and now it’s time to put it to practice; Is it possible to order from you, considering that I live in Norway?

    • Hi Gunnar,

      Yes of course. And I will let you know if there’s any additional postage, etc. Just click on the “Buy Now” button on the blog.

  • It has become a habbit for me to contemplate on my life experience everyday. Every morning I read the Main Geist prayer created by Henoch. My life each day is for Creation, consciously participating on creative cycle. Most people whom I associated with thinks I’m always happy. It’s true because I deal with every circumstance of life with love and patience. It took many years to reach this state of awareness. It’s like taking care of your garden, weeding, planting new seeds, removing deadwood, spent flowers, etc.. In the evening before I retire for the day, again I think back of the events that happened during the day, thanking Creation for the experience. If tomorrow comes, that will be great.
    Honouring oneself is such a wonderful virtue to experience. If I don’t do it, no one will. It has to start from me.
    Thanks MH and KS for writing this wonderful article.

  • Michael Horn, That’s a very good post. It got me to thinking about something I’ve cogitating about- let’s call it a “meditation retreat” for maybe FIGU passive members, or something like that. It would be maybe a camp- out type of scenario over the weekend for like minded people. The “program” letter for this get together (purely fictional at this point in time) might look something like this:

      • Hi Steve, I think what you’re contemplating is some kind of Retreat Weekend. I have friends in BC and Loveland Colorado who facilitate such retreat, not in a manner of UFO but more of non religious spiritual type setting. They have a conference centre where people can check in, food is extra. The space is available for rent.The setting is actually in a ranch. They grow their own food, teach permaculture, and other down to earth modalities. It’s called Sunrise Ranch. The one in BC Canada is Edenvale Retreat Centre.
        On the other hand, FIGU Canada is doing their great work on connecting like minded people here in Alberta. We meet everytime an opportunity arises. That will happened very soon. There are now 16 people in this province, some are new for us, and we all come from different places. It was Sheila and I who started the conversation about Billy Meier and his materials. We are also hoping to start group studies.

        • Looking forward to that too Dolly. Happy Mother’s Day to the mothers (and the smart women who chose not to be mothers) of the new millennium.

  • PENTRAMEDITATION

    Explained by Mohamed Wageh

    Pentra is a word that means something like “that which arises from love”. Meditation is performed for 20 minutes, either alone or in a group. You can also take a meditation pyramid to help. This pyramid is exactly the same as the one used in “Salome” Peace meditation.

    Absolutely no other pyramids can be used, so please read under the headings “Salome Peace meditation” and “Harmfull pyramids” for more detailed information. This is very important!

    We must face all types of meditation try to let go of everything else around and be an observer, that is, an innocent bystander. Remember, the harder, slower, more difficult and omedgörligare a man is the more difficult exercise. One should also preferably wear light, non-fitting, clothing. If you are alone and if the option is given, it would be best to be fully nude in a secluded and heated rooms. The pyramid,
    If you use such a, shall be at eye level with the person meditating. When several participants are with the pyramid should stand on an intermediate level. Use the compass as the pyramid’s diagonal lines shall be at the four cardinal points. When to meditate in a group, a person should be designated to signal the start and end of the Pentrameditationens. Pentrameditationen is done with closed eyes in which participants sit around a table or on the floor. It is important that the head and the spine is upright and relaxed throughout the Pentrameditationen. Pentrameditationen lasts for 20 minutes and is controlled with a stopwatch.

    At the beginning of the meditation is read the entire Jmmanuels meditation-prayer “Mein Geist.” high once and then focuses quietly and repeated the word “PENTRA” the remaining time.

    Mein Geist-read my spirit always in German- English explanation

    Mein Geist der du bist in Allmacht. My spirit you’re near omnipotence.

    Dein Name sei geheiligt. Hollowed be your name.

    Deine Kraft entfalte sich in mir, Your power unfold within me,
    auf Erden und in den Himmeln. on Earth and in the heavens.

    Mein tägliches Brot gib mir heute. Give me today my daily bread.

    So ich erkenne mein Schuld So I recognize my fault
    und ich erkenne die Wahrheit. and I know the truth.

    Und führe mich nicht in Versuchung und and lead me not into temptation and
    Verwirrung, sondern erlöse mich vom Irrtum. Confusion, but deliver me from error.

    Denn dein ist das Reich in mir und die kraft for the Kingdom in me and that is your strength
    und das wissen in Ewigkeit. and know in eternity.
