Kings and Queens

"In the dream of the second attention, we begin to create our personal heaven, and when we reach the dream of the third attention, our life is heaven. Heaven is a kingdom where we are the king or the queen. I have my personal kingdom and it's heaven, but it wasn't always heaven. It became heaven the moment that I no longer judged myself or anybody else—when I decided to respect my kingdom complketely, and when I learned to respect everybody else's kingdom." (The Fifth Agreement, pg. 197)

Three degrees of awareness:

  1. Dream of the first intention, the human form, victims, the dream of hell, begins by consuming the lie at the tree of knowledge, begins by self-rejection, and setting up idols or false images of perfection. Speak the Language of Gossip.
  2. Dream of the second attention, warriors, battling with awareness, fighting to become who we really are. Speak the Language of the Warrior.
  3. Dream of the third attention, masters, begins after the last judgement of ourselves or anyone else. Speak the Language of Truth. When the dead rise from their grave.

 

"Hiram [Smith] said Aug 1st [18]43 Those of the Terrestrial Glory either advance to the Celestial or recede to the Telestial [or] else the moon could not be a type [viz. a symbol of that kingdom]. [for] it [the moon] 'waxes & wanes'." (Franklin D. Richards, "Words of the Prophets," Historical Department of the Church, p. 24. This is a small 30 page handwritten booklet produced by Richards from 1841 -1844. In it he recorded notes from a number of sermons of Joseph Smith and others)

"If you see two children playing together, and they start to fight and hit each other, the children cry and run to their mothers. Hey, she hit me! One mother goes to talk with the other mother, The two mothers have a big fight, and five minutes later the two children are playing together again as if nothing happened. Now the mothers hate each other for the rest of their lives." (TMoL, p 172)
