Kant said, "To achieve perfection in
yourself and happiness in others, so act
as to treat humanity, whether in thine
own person or in that of another, in
every case as an end, never only as a
means." In other words, to see it as an

We've gone so far from this fabulous
teaching that Kant gave us here in not
understanding how to apply it. Then he
said -- this, too, we feel is a part of the
categorical imperative -- "Let us live up
to such a principle and we shall soon
create an ideal community of rational
beings." Here's how he tells you how to
create it ( I like this -- he was such a
thorough thinker): "To create it, we need
only act as if we already belonged to
it." This means we need to accept it as
an idea that it is so, and we create it
so. We need only do this, he says, as if
we belonged to it.

This is all we're suggesting you do in
relation to the Totality concept. It reminds me of a little story Dick deMille
brings out in his book, "Introduction to
Scientology". He said just imagine the
fish in the ocean, swimming around, and
suddenly a few find themselves up on land
and they develop a tremendous necessity
to change their concept of life if they
are to survive. But what if they had
said, "It is impossible to live on land,
only in water can fish survive." Where
would we be. Luckily for us, some could
perceive that it was possible to live out
of their so-called natural environment,
and thru this perceiving we exist in
these bodies today. So, we say, we nded
only act as if we already belonged to it,
we need only to perceive that we ARE Totality in and thru all space, and this is
evolution. This is the fish coming out of
the water. Any time we doubt, we shut off
the circuit, the power and flow. And can
we afford to do this today? It seems to
me we are out on somewhat of a limb right

Kant qualifies it in just one more
little statement I want to give here. He
said, "It is the unconditional command of
our conscience to act as if the maxim of
our action were to become by our own will
a universal law of nature." Is this not
true of our ability to perceive ourselves as Totality -- as if it is a universal law of nature? It IS that which creates nature -- and you are it.

Schopenhauer said that the public was
compelled to see that what is obscure is
not always without significance. That is
the argument between people who are
thinking along solid concepts of reason
and logic, and those who can perceive the
invisible and the ability to function as
