“You will in good time learn the truth about the agenda of the dark Ones and, more to your liking, details of the wonderful life that lies ahead of you. Many of you are already quite knowledgeable, but nevertheless there is much that can be added that will give the complete picture.
“We will not however dwell upon the negative as such matters will be destined for the history books of your civilization and available for your deeper consideration in the Akashic Records. Everything that has ever happened is recorded in its original detail, and any part of it can be re-lived if that is your desire.” (1)
Let’s leave aside for the moment the communication of our history before Ascension and concentrate on its communication after, since the fact that there are only four months remaining until that event would seem to indicate that he’s not talking about the production of history books before.
What would a history of our civilization look like that draws on the Akashic records after Ascension ?
We have many accounts of what a history book on the Astral Planes would look and read like. The Astral Planes are the Fourth Dimension and we’re bound for the Fifth so presumably the history books that SaLuSa refers to would be even more wonderful.
But let’s look at the Astral text for a moment. Every book written on Earth is available there, but also countless books that have no earthly counterpart, as Monsignor Robert Hugh Benson tells us:
“Not only do we have copies of earthly books upon the shelves, but there are also volumes that have their source solely in spirit, By this, I mean that such books have no counterpart on earth. Included among them are works concerning spirit life alone, the facts of life here, and spiritual teachings written by authorities who have an infallible knowledge of their subject and who reside in the higher spheres.
“There are also the histories of nations and events, with the facts set down in strict accordance with the absolute truth written by men who now find that equivocation is impossible.” (2)
These histories, Benson tells us, give the incontrovertible facts of what happened in each event. As SaLuSa has told us on many occasions, the ubiased truth of events will come out.
“Side by side with the statements of pure fact of every act by persons of historical note, by statesmen in whose hands was the government of their countries, by kings who were at the head of some of those countries, side by side with such statements was the blunt naked truth of each and every motive governing or underlying their numerous acts – the truth beyond disputation.
“Many of such motives were elevated, many, many of them were utterly base; many were misconstrued, many distorted. Written indelibly upon these spirit annals were the true narratives of thousands upon thousands of human beings, who, whilst upon their earthly journey, had been active participants in the affairs of their country. Some were victims to others’ treachery and baseness. None was spared, none omitted. It was all there for all to see – the truth, with nothing extenuated, nothing suppressed.
“These records had no respect for persons, whether it be king or commoner, churchman or layman. The writers had just set down the veridical story as it was. It required no adornment, no commentary. It spoke for itself. And I was profoundly thankful for one thing – that this truth had been kept from us until such time as we stood where we were now standing, when our minds would, in some measure, be prepared for revelations such as were here at hand.” (3)
Oftentimes, the writing of the truth of events is done by the actor him or herself, as a means of addressing karma and setting the record straight. There’s no longer an ability to dissemble on the spirit planes, Benson tells us, where all is known in our aura.
“Who … writes the book of truth in spirit? The author of the earthly volume writes it – when he comes into the spirit world. And he is glad to do it. It becomes his work, and by such he can gain the progress of his soul. He will have no difficulty with the facts, for they are here for him to record, and he records them – but the truth this time! There is no need to dissemble – in fact, it would be useless.” (4)
Only the truth can be told on the spirit planes. To try to conceal proves futile, as Benson suggests: “Every word contained in these books was the literal truth, Concealment is impossible, because nothing but truth can enter these realms.” (5)
Matson describes the Astral library.
“When we first come to the astral plane, we can study in libraries which are very much like the libraries we have on earth. It is very important that these should be here for, if one were transported after death into completely new surroundings, the sense of continuity would be broken. I want to stress again that the astral world is almost a replica of your world, except that it is of a finer substance. Therefore, as we have pointed out before, on the astral plane we continue to practice many of the modes of living we carried out on earth.
“We have books that would seem to be exactly like the books on earth. As long as we think we need books, we may go to a library, look through the catalogues in the stands, go to the shelves, and find the correct book. There are librarians here, still doing the same work. We also have museums and art galleries here which contain replicas of the great art of the ages, and some people still find a need to study in those places.” (6)
The books contained in it are “of a quite different kind from yours,” according to an unnamed communicator. (7) Monsignor Benson describes some of the differences.
“We have our methods of printing, but they are totally unlike those of the earth. We have our experts, who are also artists at their work, and it is work they love doing, or else they would not be doing it. The method of reproduction here is wholly a process of the mind, as with all else, and author and printer work together in complete harmony. The books that result from this close cooperation are works of art, they are beautiful creations which, apart altogether from their literary contents, are lovely to look upon. …
“The books thus produced are not dead things that require a concentration of the whole mind upon them. They live just as much as the paintings we saw were living. To pick up a book and begin reading it meant also to perceive with the mind, in a way not possible on earth, the whole story as it was being told, whether it be history or science, or the arts. The book, once taken in hand by the reader, instantly responds, in very much the same way as the flowers respond when one approaches close to them. The purpose is different of course.” (8)
Medium Charlotte Dresser’s father tries to communicate how books communicate their knowledge astrally and finds he cannot:
“It is all so intangible to your way of expression, I do not know that I can describe it. But if you can picture wireless telegraphy as impressing itself in words than can be read,—if you can think of thought expressing itself almost simultaneously, flashing itself on pages, perhaps you can get an idea of the way books are formed.” (9)
Moreover the spirit ability to read books is far greater than ours, as Philip Gilbert explains.
“One can read books, but in a swift, all in-taking way impossible to explain.” (10)
“I was reading your book with you just now, but it’s an irritating process for I get the gist of a page and see, as it were, the whole before your physical eyes have read half of one.” (11)
But at some point we hunger for information to be given faster than is possible by reading books and faster means are always available. On the Astral planes, we can go to what Mattson calls “memory-bank reference” libraries. But on the Mental Planes other means of downloading information are also available that are infinitely quicker.
“However the time comes when you no longer want to go around in a regular library and get information in this way. Your own thinking and your own progress give you a desire to get information a quicker way. We can then go to memory-bank reference libraries, which contain records of everything that has ever happened.” (12)
We might secure information in the memory-bank reference libraries in one of three ways, Mattson tells us: “I could see it on a screen; I could hear explanatory comments; and I could have it recorded in written form for later reading. … The visual and sound portions could also be recorded for later use.” (13)
We know as well that we’ll be receiving information by direct download, usually in our sleep, and other fast means. We can look at those in another article.
If we can imagine ways of communicating information even swifter, more encompassing, and more instantaneous than this, they are probably what we’ll find on the higher plane of the Fifth Dimension. All knowledge will be available to us and in total truth. There will be ample time to find out what really transpired upon Earth in these years in which the cabal went for total domination of the planet and were stopped by the star nations and the Company of Heaven.
