The 8th insight is a whole new ethic governing the way humans should treat each other to facilitate everyone’s evolution. All the answers that mysteriously come to us, come from other people ie: even the manuscript was written by a person. But not all the people you meet will have the energy or the clarity to reveal the message they have for you. You must help them by a) sending them energy.
The 8th insight describes how to project energy and teaches us how to interact consciously. How we approach other people determines how quickly we evolve, how quickly our life questions are answered. Whenever people cross our paths, there is always a message for us. Chance encounters do not exist. The manuscript predicts once humans grasp this reality, our interaction will slow down, and become more purposeful and deliberate.
Spontaneous eye contact or a sense of recognition are definite signs you should talk to a person. They are often members of your thought group, evolving along the same lines of interest with the same expression and outward experience. We intuitively recognize members of our thought group and very often they provide messages for us.
When you appreciate the demeanor and inner beauty of a person, you can then send them energy, lifting them up. We need to keep our own energy high, then we can start the flow of energy coming through us, and into the other person. If the person is already operating in a control drama, as long as we do not assume the matching drama, their behavior will fall apart. Be truthful about what is going on in the conversation and they should respond by being more honest and cooperative. If they can feel energy coming in anyway, then it’s easier for them to give up their manipulating for it. The more energy we give, the more we receive.
During a group conversation, only one person can have the strongest idea at a time. If they are alert, members can sense who’s turn it is to speak and can focus their energy upon this person helping them be more articulate. This is a conscious conversation. It is as if the group is just one body, but one with many heads. Each individual knows when to talk and what to say because he or she truly sees life more clearly.
The 8th insight also instructs b) how to treat children and warns against your growth being stopped through c) becoming addicted to another person. One adult can only focus on and give attention to one child at a time. The learned manipulations on the child’s part can be avoided if the adult gives them all the energy they require i.e. unconditional love. They should always be involved in conversations and the truth can always be expressed at a child’s level of understanding. Worse are the distortions created by adults on the spur of the moment because they believe the truth is too complicated for the child to comprehend.
The mystical energy we can absorb as an inner source is both male and female. Usually, identifying with and integrating the energy of the same-sexed parent is accomplished easily but receiving energy from the other can be more difficult. If we connect prematurely with a human source for our opposite sex energy without learning to access it ourselves, we block the universal supply.
When a man and a woman fall in love, they are giving each other energy unconsciously but once they expect this feeling to come from the other person, they disregard the energy in the universe. They become dependent, then the energy runs out, they stop giving energy and are reduced to competing using their control drama. The bliss and euphoria of love turns into a power struggle.
Being in love feels like the wholeness that a full connection with the universe produces and both want to control this whole person. Perhaps in the past, one of the partners was willing to submit themselves to the other – usually the woman, sometimes the man. Not anymore though. We can still have romance but we have to learn to complete the circle on our own, stabilize our channel with the universe.
This involves experiencing the sense of well-being and euphoria at the beginning of a co-dependent relationship when alone. We also have to resist love at first sight and learn to have platonic relationships with members of the opposite sex, which removes fantasy about the gender. Afterwards, we can have what the manuscript calls a higher relationship. Connecting romantically with another whole person never pulls us from the path of our individual evolution.
