03. Self-knowledge of the knower of the Triune Self

The knowledge which a human acquires is available to him only during that life, except for a small portion, the essence of that knowledge, which is assimilated and stored up by the doer-in-the-body.

  • The knowledge which the doer thus acquires through its many human beings, often assists the present human being.
  • In a crisis and even in ordinary affairs of trade and work, a human then finds that hidden knowledge of his doer coming to his help.
  • On moral questions this hidden knowledge reveals itself through rightness and speaks as conscience.
  • This knowledge makes a human responsible. It is his noetic destiny and makes physical destiny.

Self-knowledge of the knower of the Triune Self is always certain, be it much or little, and it leaves no doubt.

  • It leaves no room for thinking, because it is the summation in which thinking has found its completion.
  • Self-knowledge of the knower may come to the doer also as intuition.

Intuition is a definite and certain knowledge concerning a subject that has a relation to the doer.

  • Intuition comes through the thinker and gives to the human information and an understanding of a superior kind.
  • The understanding is a live understanding and because it comes from Self-knowledge of the knower is not subject to argument.
  • Intuition is not a feeling, not an instinct, not a prejudice or a preference.
  • It is impartial, it does not come to everybody, and those to whom it comes do not usually mention it.
  • Intuition is tuition by one's Self from within.

Knowledge of the conscious self in the body comes to some unexpectedly, not as definite intuition and not as conscience, but as confidence and as a general aid inaccomplishing a plan.

  • This is noetic destiny of the human.
  • According to the purpose for which one uses this assistance he closes or opens himself as a channel for further contact with Self-knowledge of the knower.
  • If he will not have anyone but himself benefit by the contact with that aid he closes himself as a channel and shuts off the aid.
  • If he is willing to share the advantages he keeps himself open and may even make better contact.

The more he is willing to share without restrictions, the more he receives of this knowledge, from which most people shut themselves off because of their selfish desire.

As it becomes more evident to him that there is an inner source he will be led by it to think about it, and so he opens the way to the source, which is by exercise and discipline of his thinking, until this becomes a thinking without attachment, which does not create thoughts.

Thus a doer may eventually have in its waking state access to the noetic world.
