According to this book, most men have been addicted to the first seal, sex, whereas most women deal with life from the third seal, power. This is why men have feared and disempowered women, who rest naturally in a more powerful consciousness. Women, in order to survive in a patriarchal society where they have been put down and robbed of power, have usually stepped down their energy from the third seal in order to meet a mans energy. They have tried to make their faces and bodies enticing to men, so that they and their children could be protected and provided for.
Ramthas advice to women: "Don't use your sexuality to find another husband. Use your God to find yourself . . . When we are totally fulfilled in ourself, everyone else is company. Do you understand? That is the most desirable woman on the face of the earth."
And to men he says: "The day that the man no longer is connected to his penis but is connected to his fourth seal and works arduously to be that and still considers himself a God, not a man, is the day that he is nearer to God and he is on the equal precipice with women." The fourth seal in this teaching is the heart.
The first three seals are about emotion. "All emotion is a narcotic," says the Ram. "You are addicted to your emotions." Emotion demands that things be always new and different. Men coming from the first seal may say to a partner "I love you," when the desire is simply for sex. But when the first flush of sexual fulfillment is over, boredom sets in and one or both partners begin to fantasize about being with different people.
One of the most disturbing, eye opening parts of this book describes how our attitudes and fantasies during lovemaking determine the child who is conceived.
Ramtha teaches that women are more likely to use the second seal to become ill or have accidents, so that they receive attention. And to the third seal gravitate those who want the longest orgasm of all--power over others--such as gurus, executives, ministers.
Love is in the now. If genuine love exists between a couple, no Kama Sutra is needed. Love in the moment holds our complete attention. This love comes from the fourth seal of the heart, and higher. In that arena, we are attending to what is eternal in our partner, the soul and divinity.
There is a fascinating section about St. Germain and Don Juan at a dinner party. St. Germain speaks of immortality, while Don Juan is his usual seductive self. Which receives all the attention? From this is garnered that the most desirable any of us can be is not merely a body. Not a man, not a woman. But God, our spiritual divine self.
About amnesiacs, Ramtha says that as they feel no emotion from their past, they become younger; emotion equals time. And they are able to create cleanly and powerfully because nothing from their past holds them back. We need to break our repetitive emotional cycles. "The miracle exists out of emotional time," he says.
Of people with multiple personalities, one personality may have a disease-ridden, even terminally ill body. The next instant, another personality takes over the same body and it is disease-free, demonstrating that we are not a body, we are a mind.
Ramtha encourages us to become the "Observer," the high self which sees, knows and loves all without getting stuck in emotional attachment. Also, to not be a gender. "The clearest, cleanest, fastest way to manifestation is to create without gender. Then it happens straightaway."
About love with another person, Ramtha says "To fall in love with a person, another human being, has got to be the direct result of first falling in love with you."
"And the reflection of love as a many-splendored thing is essentially the reflection of ourself, and then when we look in this mirror, we are looking at another entity . . .[who] smiles and we smile, that its eyes dance and our eyes dance, and that when we come together, full body, and we touch, the only thing that separates us is that it is an illusion of our own reflection. Then we are in splendor."
In one overview statement, towards the end, the Ram says: "[Love] is a many-splendored thing. It is a phenomenon, and yet it is the basis of life itself because we are, in the greater view, loved into life. We are loved by a higher order that is so passionately involved with us that but for that passion, we would literally be nothing; with no memory, no past, no present, no future, no hope. We would be a nothing."
The last section of the book is a transcription of JZ Knights telling the group of her experiences with Ramtha, and it is quite moving.
All in all, I have read no book I would recommend more highly. It gives food for thought and action for a long, long time.

However, the presentation leaves a lot to be desired. The book is provided as a series of (channelled) lectures. The concepts appear meandering at times, uncohesive. Particularly the 'examples' seem off base a bit.
However, if you know someone with it I would say it's worth borrowing. I got some excellent insights from reading it, though I'm not sure I would recommend anyone buying it. Now, if it was out in paperback, it might be worth the cover price there.
The book is made up of selected teachings of Ramtha the Enlightened One, and takes you on a journey into the realms of mind, emotions, consciousness, life, and that elixir called love. Ramtha's teachings are so filled with rich information that by the time I had completed reading and contemplating and concluding about my life, I was refreshed with a new perspective and was able to move forward with wisdom and understanding. This volume has been a profound tool in assisting me in my personal growth, and I have returned to it often, for even more insights and understandings.
Easy to read, captivating, encouraging, humorous, and a welcoming light in the window for anyone with questions about or would like to experience the magic of true love. One cannot help but relate to the many examples of humanity, and then to recognize the potentials that are waiting for us when we become even just a little aware and awakened.
Everyone can relate to the information in this book, and everyone can learn from it. I would say this information is a great addition to any library!
"Our lives... your life, and my life in the beginning - were based upon feeling. ..... Yours is based upon feeling and redemption. And you have got this all confused with love. You think that being true to those emotions is love. But you are so wrongo in the Congo".
"You all want love, the great fountain, the great elixir. To love ourself is the beginning of the quest. Attitude is everything, and you can do this. So be it".Read more ›
This book does meander, but the information is worth reading over and over. I found this book very helpful.
