The difference between a man and a knower
In a state of true meditation you become one with that upon which you meditate. You become someone who knows about that thing, not just someone who thinks they know, or who knows about it in theory only.
In this week’s extract, Master of Yoga Dr. George King draws upon his own experience as someone who was able to enter into this state at will, to describe the difference between ordinary knowledge and knowledge gained from Cosmic Consciousness.
The Nine Freedoms are a series of cosmic transmissions (communications) given by a great and wise extraterrestrial intelligence known as “Mars Sector 6”, through the trance mediumship of Dr. George King.Purchase the full lecture: https://www.aetherius.org/shop/the-nine-freedoms-lectures-cd

“In order to be Enlightened as I told you before, to give you a scientific explanation for it, we raise the power of Kundalini through all the centers. We gradually do this through concentration, contemplation, and the end of this is meditation, where Kundalini is raised through all the centers and all the centers are to all intents and purposes, dead.
“And we enter into conscious death or a type of conscious death. A very, very deep state of trance where there’s little or no warmth in the body, except around the top of the head. And that warmth stops rigor mortis setting in.
“Other than that, if you stayed in this type of meditation for several days, rigor mortis would set in, and you would be taken for one dead, you see? But a slight warmth is caused in the top of the head which warms the blood enough to stop rigor mortis from setting in. This is meditation, all else is working up to it. All else is working up to it.
“Right now, suddenly after going in and out of meditation many, many times and gaining great Enlightenment—suddenly one day, apparently out of the blue, something else happens: Cosmic Consciousness comes. Your meditation is different. It’s a much greater thing, a very, very, very much greater thing. A much, much, much wider thing, because you begin to feel at one with all things and to be at one with all things is to know things.
“We cannot know about a dog, a cat unless we are at one with a dog and a cat. How can we know about these things? How can we know about Buddhism unless we are one with the Buddhic realms? “Alright,” you might say, “study the works of Buddha.” It’s not good enough, you will never know about it by studying the works, not really know about it.
“How do you know anything at all about plant life? Anything whatsoever about plant life that isn’t just basic theory unless you are one with the plants? How do you know about sound unless you are one with sound? Do you know anything about light unless you are one with light? How can you? You cannot—all you can know is scratch the fringe like a little child scratches the fringe of deeper mathematics by saying 2 + 2 equals 4. Just scratching the fringe of it, and that’s all normal man is doing—scratching the fringe of these things.
“You can read things, you can hear people talk, these things help you. Reading helps you, studying helps you, most certainly. But to really become a knower is something above this stage, is to have the practical experience of these things.
“I might turn ‘round and tell you that the most wonderful sound on Earth is the sound made by molecules of material rubbing together in trees and grass and flowers when they grow, that this sound is like a great, natural symphony.
“I’ve experienced this, I know what it is, this is a part of Cosmic Consciousness, but my words are still only words to you as yet. They’re words which help. Do you see, I’m trying to point out the difference between a man and a knower.”
