The Brotherhood of Light

Counseling and Guidance

The buildings and grounds of the Brotherhood of Light are intended to be a place of peace and instruction for souls who are lost and upset in the process of reincarnation. It is a way station where they feed the hungry, cheer up the sorrowful, and instruct the ignorant. This is the primary purpose of the Temples of Wisdom.

As counselors and teachers, the members find and help lost souls. They have generated the grounds and the temples by concentrated will, and maintained them by will, and the force of compassion. For those souls with no spiritual orientation, who are paralyzed by fear or anger or sorrow following death, the brotherhood has helpers. They speak of the process of dying, of the necessity of moving on, and suggest reasonable options to such souls. These souls may not be able to reach the heaven worlds, but neither are they so malevolent that they will be forced into the hells.

Karmic counseling can occur on two levels. In the first, people need to see what is owed, and the karmic records are defined in terms of gain and loss, rather like an accounting ledger. People owe others and those obligations need to be fulfilled or negotiated, and a debt can be paid either directly or indirectly. If a person is in grave trauma with no direct cause, then it is the universe that owes him or her fulfillment and happiness. If the person has harmed many and still wishes to do so, then the universe owes revenge. This cannot be negotiated away.

In the second, and more common form of counseling, the counselors examine the person's karma and can suggest some directions of travel and incarnation. Many souls at death call out for guidance and the counselors allow time for deities to attend to them, if they have a preexisting relationship with a deity, or if one takes mercy on them spontaneously and comes to their assistance. The counselors look to the neglected ones whose fear or sorrow has prevented the travel that would normally occur following death.

The observers of the brotherhood see if it looks like they can be helped - if their thoughts and emotions are open to learning. If they are open in this way, then the counselors of the brotherhood can help some of them.
