Today I want to address the question of why we need to return again and again to Beelzebub’s Tales to His Grandson BTTHG. Keep in mind that here I am only the pointing finger. Do not stick to the finger and look towards where the finger is pointing.
I think the answer to the question under consideration is given in the first 52 pages of the Book and I am going to quote three paragraphs that for me answer the question:
1.“To destroy, merciless, without any compromise whatever, in the mentation and feelings of the reader, the beliefs and views, by centuries rooted in him, about everything existing in the world.” From the Prime Directive.
2. “I wish to bring to the knowledge of what is called your “pure waking consciousness” the fact that in the writings following this chapter of warning I shall expound my thoughts intentionally in such sequence and with such “logical confrontation,” that the essence of certain real notions may of themselves automatically, so to say, go from this “waking consciousness”— which most people in their ignorance mistake for the real consciousness, but which I affirm and experimentally prove is the fictitious one—into what you call the subconscious, which ought to be in my opinion the real human consciousness” (p.24).
3.Beelzebub once saw in the government of the World something which seemed to him “illogical,” and having found support among his comrades, beings like himself not yet formed, interfered in what was none of his business” (p. 52).
Paragraph 1 tells us what the Book s going to do for us. It is going to destroy our subjective reason. But destroying for the sake of destroying would make the Book incomplete and not self-sufficient. The Book is complete and self-sufficient. Like the Serpent of Knowledge it closes onto itself: The beginning is the end and the end is the beginning. It begins with two mentations and it ends with two rivers. In between there is the teaching on Objective Divine Reason. This is the Reason the Book is going to help to develop in us. The Germ is already in us but exists only as a potential actualization. The Book is going to help us to transform this potential actualization into a kinetic realization. And it is going to do it the proper and normal way, by first awakening in us Objective Divine Conscience. Objective Reason without Objective Conscience is an abnormality, the abnormality of the Hasnamuss type.
Paragraph 2 tells us how the Book is going to do it. It is going to force us to penetrate our subconscious or real consciousness. That is the great Hope the Book gives us because it is in the subconscious where that data necessary and sufficient for the awaking of Conscience is now buried. Without that Hope there would be no hope for us.
Paragraph 3 tells us why the Book is going to do it. It is going to do it because there is something “illogical” in the functioning of the Universe. This is why we have to do something about ourselves because we cannot let things go that way. We have to help the Universe to become “logical” again. What is this “illogical” something? We are never told but we know that the Book has the answer. Beelzebub spends thousands of years in exiles trying to find out why this “illogical” something exists. And he does find it and we too can find it if we go to the Book. It is not that it in the Book; it is that it is in us. We too live in exile.
The Book then puts us face-to-face with the three most fundamental questions: Why, What, How. Why is for the thinking center. What is for the feeling center? How is for the moving center.
The Book puts us in contact with the totality of our being: our three centers. The Book helps us to bring normality to the abnormality that now exists in us. By doing so the Book gives us the possibility of accessing the two higher centers which are fully developed in us. These two higher centers are never mentioned in the Book. Why is it so? For the simple reason that the Book is written from these two higher centers and no need exists to speak about them when they are already there.
In the spirit of Returning,
