“Meditation, Spirituality, Science and the Future”
by Charlie F. Lutes
Meditation is the technique or practice used to raise one up from a mundane to Cosmic Status.
It is the means of going within oneself and reversing oneself on the wheel of birth and death,
and, in due time, spinning off of the wheel and becoming liberated. This is done by raising the
body up to a state of purification and this is not an easy, or an overnight process.
This calls for dedication and devotion that is second to none, that one in their trek through life
has ever encountered, or will ever encounter in the future. One is entitled to this privilege only
because their karma decrees it; in other words, they have earned the right to Initiation and
Transcendental Meditation. They may not continue to Meditate throughout this life, however,
whatever progress they have made, they will not lose.
The path to Spirituality is not an easy path as most expect it to be because of the nervous
system, which is the Key, as it has to be purified. For most of us this is not easy or pleasant.
When one starts the regular practice of Meditation, one sets up a high vibration in the nervous
system and this starts the un-stressing in the body and in the mind. The nervous system is so
sensitive that anything of an unnatural nature that impinges itself upon the nervous system
impacts the nervous system and lowers the vibration in the body. The more the nervous
system is stressed, the more it is impacted.
When one starts to Meditate, one enjoys the good karma one has accumulated. However,
when this runs out, be it in a day or in a couple of years, the un-stressing starts. This may be
uncomfortable, or it may be extreme and nearly unbearable. But, if one has their sight on the
goal, one will go through whatever is necessary in order to reach the goal. Whatever the case
may be, it has to be handled individually and not by rote.
It is like playing a tape, for whatever is on the tape will play out until it is finished no matter
what is on the tape. Then, when one tape is finished another one starts, and so forth. It is
true that if one was a thief and they started to Meditate, they would for some time be a better
thief until this proclivity is burned out. It is no different than a child who is caked with mud
and is being bathed and scrubbed. He doesn’t care for the bath or the scrubbing, but it is the
end result that counts.
It is the human that is a “unit of energy”, a transmitting station for Solar Fire which is a
radiation that stems from the heart of the Sun which evolves all living things that come in contact with it. In the human, who is the highest expression of God on earth, it is the vagus or tenth cranial nerve that is the most receptive to this Solar Fire or Energy, the Spiritual Fire coming down, the Fire of the Macrocosm.
This fire energizes humans and uses them to express the qualities of love and wisdom. There
is a fire by friction in the center of the earth called the Kundalini Fire, and a Spiritual or Solar
Fire. The human is the focal point of these two Fires or forces which play through him and
activate one’s Seven Centers of Light. The Kundalini Fire is the “negatively charged energy”
which is activated by the “positively charged energy”, the Spiritual Fire, which is located in the
Central Spiritual Sun.
It is said that at a propitious time Kundalini hears the call of her mate and rises from her cave
in the base of the human spine to meet him. The Kundalini Fire is aroused as a final step in
one's Spiritual development, and it can only travel up a clear, pure channel, activating the
chakras as it goes. While this is happening, the latent powers within one are also coming into
full expression in a natural way. It is the way that one through many rebirths, and now rapidly
through Meditation, moves from mortality to immortality.
The Age of Aquarius
We are now entering the Age of Aquarius, an age which will feature group expression, group
Meditation, an age of Spirituality, an age of Spiritual Science and so forth. This Age of Aquarius
will also be the age of preparation for what will become in the Age of Capricorn a time when
an enormous amount of humanity will be ready, and will come to Meditation and will Meditate
in large groups regularly. This will be possible because most of humanity will have good karma,
minus much of the bad karma and adharma that so much of humanity now has. It is the bad
karma that keeps so many from entering onto the Spiritual path, and if they do approach the
path, in a short time they may fall away. Maharishi frequently stated: “They fall away because
they do not have the good karma to continue Meditation.” Also, this is what is meant by, “Many
are called, but few are chosen, and, they who choose to be Chosen”.
All that has been in manifestation in the Piscean Age is now in the process of disappearing or
at least changing, for the Aquarian Age is now here.
It is bringing in group relationships, group service, group sharing of love for fellow beings. Also,
now scientific ways of simplifying and improving the life of humanity will be super-stupendous.
Those who are incapable of contributing to the new way of life will disappear from the Earth,
and this means world-wide. Criminals and dissolute persons are now in the close of their
activity. So, they either change or vanish, and most will vanish. Grace is extended to any and
all who want to change.
“Heaven on Earth” means just that.
Those who will lead the way will be Spiritual souls, and not of those who are greedy persons
of those of evil intent. People of the New Age will automatically live in accordance with the
Higher Law (Divine Law) and will not need someone to ﬁnd them loop holes of escape from
justice. Higher souls will bring in higher souls. The deserts will truly blossom. And, space will
become our second home...
There will be no hunger and drought, since the deeds and thoughts of people who produce
these conditions and that karma no longer will exist. People will share and live in abundance.
Things will be so easily produced and in such abundance by robots, etc., that no one will
struggle for the necessities of life. The Government will be “by the people, of the people and
for the people” and for the most part, out of people's personal business.
The Future, Prophecy and Technology
There will eventually be the United States of the Americas, the United States of Europe, and
the United States of Asia. There will come in the near future a new method of almost instantly
imparting knowledge of any subject to a person, along with the fact that most people will be
very intelligent to start with. People will have an international code number and will be
reached by wrist phone anywhere on the earth and in space.
People will live in a park-like setting in beautiful surroundings with everything available for
pleasure and for health, and people will enjoy each other’s company.
Women’s equal rights will be fully established since humans will understand karma and
reincarnation and the alternating of sex, from life to Iife, when it is necessary to maintain
balance of the Soul and evolution. As a result, women, by their own free will, will return to the
home as wives and mothers since there is a special reward on the ‘Other Side’ for all Mothers.
Man and wife will live much closer together and enjoy each other’s company since they will be
nearly perfectly matched, and they will see themselves mirrored in each other. Karmic
marriages will be over, and emphasis will be on Spirituality and not on sex, self-advantage or
selfishness. It is much easier to live in a high positive atmosphere, than in poverty and want in
a negative atmosphere. Spiritual life and relationships will flourish, having no limit as to what
can be developed to make life easier and happier.
People will be “beamed” from one place to another as the human cannot envision anything
that he cannot materialize. The human, long ago once was in a mindless state and lived in the
Garden of Eden, and he is now with a highly developed mind, and again returning to Eden
(Heaven on Earth) for a 2,000 year stay. Trains will be running at great speed without wheels
and in the near future, cars will be running the same; very fast, very quiet and very safe. Very
brilliant children will be commonplace and the attention of people will be on God, instead of on
sports and on war.
Heaven on Earth
People will live in the Love and Grace of God, and they will live in beauty, youth, luxury, bliss
and in good health. They will no longer live to eat, but they will eat to live. The super-mental
being will realize the harmony of their individual self with the Cosmic Self; an Integrated
individual of will and action with the Divine Cosmic Will and Action. ln this state of
Consciousness one has no lower ego. One becomes a Finely Tuned Instrument of God.

Charlie would often talk about subjects, ideas and experiences that were not in his formal
lectures during meals, car rides and the times before, between and after actual lectures.
Typically, these were moments when there were just my husband Ray, our friend Jay Peters
and I with him. At the time I wrote many of these discussions in my journal. Here are a few of
these moments from the October 26-27th, 1985 series of lectures.
Charlie told me that one’s personal relationship with their Teacher is very important, is kept
quiet and is one-on-one. Several levels of knowledge are shared and this is for one
(the student) to learn to stand on their own.
I asked Charlie about the Siddhi's (Spiritual Powers) and he said, “Most people are not ready
yet, one must be Spiritually prepared. One cannot make them (the powers) work, they unfold
when the time is right. Spiritual powers (will) come naturally, on their own, through Devotion
to God and meditation. This is why it is so important to have the one-on-one relationship with
one’s Teacher. The Teacher takes the responsibility for guidance. One should not desire
powers; these Teachings are given as one Spiritually progresses”. He was repeating an earlier
warning given that day that the acquiring of powers without mentoring and guidance and
without the necessary Spiritual preparation could be very dangerous for one’s evolution.
Regarding Comets, “…they come from deep space and they bring in a very high vibration.
Comets are Celestial Messengers, pay attention to when they come, meditate more to be in
alignment with Cosmic and Spiritual Energy. Comets bring great changes which cause people
to un-stress and this affects the whole of nature and the planet. This is also true for meteor
showers, but to a lesser degree”.
Charlie said, “As we advance our Inner Experiences continue and over time our Spiritual
Energy increases and balances naturally. We balance our Inner Unfoldment with our outer life
and this is why reading the Scriptures is so important, for understanding, as the deeper levels
(of the soul) unfold. We begin to understand through our Spiritual expansion the layers
embedded and encoded in the Scriptures as they are reveled to our Inner Eye. The Teacher
increases one’s Spiritual Knowledge and Vibration; this Relationship is a Scared Trust, one of
love and mutual respect.
