David Wilcock is a one-man dynamo who delivers the teaching of nonduality in occult form. He seems to have tapped into the source of occult information ala Alice Bailey or Blavatsky or one of those types of spiritual chicks, and has incorporated it into a very intelligent, ambitious, energetic form and personality.
Like someone once said, it doesn't matter if 'truth' is delivered in the way of a Ra, Ramana, a Rumi, a David Wilcock, or a dirt encrusted pebble in the gutter, it's all truth or Buddha or another issue of the Highlights.
Sometimes these kinds of occult teachings end up dividing people into categories that we recognize as races and religions. Some are claimed to be superior to others. The occult form of nonduality, if aligned with, can get some people going out and killing people of the "inferior" races and relgions. But, hey, we're having fun, right? If ya can't step on a caterpillar once in a while or kick someone off the edge who is only halfway up the mountain, what good is all this nonduality stuff? It's like forms of Christianity: if they get rid of heaven, hell, and limbo, all that's left is bingo and the fat lady bringing you a plate of turkey.
I don't think Wilcock packages his teachings in a racist way. It wouldn't sell like it did fifty years ago. Besides, I've probably managed to insult more people in one paragraph than he does in his entire life's work. Good for you, David. Bad for me. But honestly, a crumb sitting on my keyboard has as much intelligence. Everyone knows that.
The following is from David's website: http://snipurl.com/yq9s
THE GRAND SCHEME OF THINGS: SETTING UP THE GAME
7. THE BEGINNING OF ALL THINGS
I. THE INFINITE ONE = THE SOURCE = INTELLIGENT INFINITY
A. THE INFINITE ONE IS UNFOCUSED AND UNDIFFERENTIATED
QUESTION: Can you tell me the first known thing in creation?
RA: The first known thing in creation is infinity.
B. AWARENESS DAWNS
QUESTION: What is the next step?
RA: Infinity became aware.
II. FROM THE INFINITE ONE DESIRING TO EXPERIENCE ITSELF ARISES THE CREATOR
A. THE CREATOR CREATES (OUTER) SPACE
RA: As the Creator decides to experience Itself It generates into that plenum (nothingness that has the potential for being) full of the glory and the power of the One Infinite Creator which is manifest to your perceptions as space or outer space.
B. THE CREATOR DIVIDES INTO (OR CREATES) INDIVIDUALIZED PORTIONS OF ITSELF
RA: Step by step, the Creator becomes that which may know (or experience) Itself, and the portions of the Creator partake less purely in the power of the original word or thought. The creation itself is a form of consciousness which is unified.
THE CREATOR DOES NOT PROPERLY CREATE AS MUCH AS IT EXPERIENCES ITSELF. (B1, 65)
III. THE CREATOR = THE FOCUSING OF INTELLIGENT INFINITY INTO INTELLIGENT ENERGY
RA: Awareness led to the focus of infinity into infinite energy. You have called this by various names, the most common being ‘logos' or ‘love' [But love is actually the 2nd distortion].
RA: The Creator is the focusing of infinity as an aware conscious principle called intelligent infinity. (NOTE: When infinity focuses itself, then creation occurs.)
RA: Love may be seen as the type of energy of an extremely high order which causes intelligent energy to be formed from the potential of intelligent infinity in a particular way. All love emanates from the Oneness.
IV. INTELLIGENT INFINITY AND INTELLIGENT ENERGY
RA: There is unity. This unity is all there is. This unity has a potential and a kinetic. The potential is intelligent infinity, Tapping this potential will yield work [or the kinetic part.] This work [or kinetic part] has been called by us, intelligent energy. [Yet] there is no difference, potential or kinetic, in unity. The basic rhythms of intelligent infinity are totally without distortion of any kind. The rhythms are clothed in mystery, for they are being itself. Its unity is undistorted. However, there is a vast potential to be tapped into by focuses of energy, which we call intelligent energy, (So, in a certain sense It does have a potential - as seen from that which taps into It, but not as seen from that which It is.) - (Recall Tillich's ground of being).
V. THE GREAT CENTRAL SUN AND THE RHYTHM OF INTELLIGENT INFINITY
RA: Intelligent infinity has a rhythm or flow as of a giant heart beginning with the central sun as you would conceive of this, the presence of the flow inevitable as a tide of beingness without polarity, without finiteness, the vast and silent all beating outward, outward and inward until all the focuses are complete. Then their spiritual nature or mass calls them inward, inward until all is coalesced. This is the rhythm of reality.
8. THE TOOLS OF REASON = 3 BASIC DISTORTIONS OF THE ONE
THE 1ST DISTORTION = FREE WILL
QUESTION: The 1st distortion of intelligent infinity is free will. Can you give a definition of this distortion?
RA: In this distortion of the Law of One it is recognized that the Creator will know Itself (or experience Itself). The primal distortion is free will.
QUESTION: The Creator then grants total freedom of choice in the ways of knowing. Is this correct?
RA: This is quite correct.
QUESTION: Then all other distortions spring from this first distortion, is this correct?
RA: It is both correct and incorrect.
In your illusion of physical existence all experience springs from the Law of Free will or the Way of Confusion.
In another sense, which we are learning, the experiences are this distortion.
II. THE 2ND DISTORTION = LOVE
A. THE FOCUSING OF FREE WILL YIELDS LOVE
RA: The 1st distortion, free will, finds a focus which is known to you as logos, the Creative Principle or love. This focus may be called the 2nd distortion.
RA: The second distortion is the distortion of love.
B. LOVE SEEKS TO KNOW ITSELF
RA: The distortion love is the great activator and primal co-Creator of various creations using intelligent infinity. ... Love uses Its intelligent energy to create a certain pattern of illusions or densities in order to satisfy Its own intelligent estimate of a method of knowing itself.
III. THE 3RD DISTORTION = LIGHT
(NOTE: Light, or light energy, is transformative: it may, or may not, be connected to love)
RA: This intelligent energy thus creates a distortion known as Light. From these 3 distortions come many, many hierarchies of distortions each having its own paradoxes to be synthesized, no one being any more important than another.
RA: The origin of all energy is the action of free will upon love. The nature of all energy is light, including the inner light which is the guiding star of the self. This is the true nature of all entities.
RA: THE INNER LIGHT IS YOUR HEART OF BEING. ITS STRENGTH EQUALS YOUR STRENGTH OF WILL TO SEEK THE LIGHT.
RA: A certain amount of awareness of the inner light is necessary to attract the in-streaming light upward spiraling from the south magnetic pole of being...
