BI TWENTY FOUR PROCESSEANS GOD PATTERNS
THE PROCESS CHURCH 0F THE FINAL JUDGEMENT Thursday 6 August 1970
Brethren, As it is,
Often there is confusion with new DPs about which God pattern predominates in them. Sometimes they appear to change from one pattern to another, or even do the rounds of all three. Sometimes they manifest such equally opposing characteristics, that it is impossible to place them even temporarily in one corner of the triangle.
And this does not only apply to OPs, but to Processeans on every level of the hierarchy. Most of us change, not only in terms of progress upwards, but sideways as well, from one God pattern to another, so that we think we may have been mistaken about which pattern we belonged to.
There is no need to be dismayed, or even surprised by any of this.
Processeans by nature are direct representatives of the Spirit of Christ. Therefore, to some extent, all of us are unity beings. We contain far more evenly balanced qualities of all three patterns than is normal.
No one can survive for very long within The process if he has a real deficiency in even one of the God patterns, far less two of them. A really staunch Jehovian could never abide the requirements of Lucifer and Satan, which are as powerful as those of Jehovah within The process. A complete Luciferian would collapse under the burdens which Jehovah requires us to carry, and would flee in horror at the concept of Satan. And an out and out Satanist could not stand the mind games of Jehovah and Lucifer, which have to be played out for the overall Game to progress.
A person who is practically all harsh realism, Jehovian, or practically all gentle idealism, Luciferian, or practically all spirtuality or corruption, the two Satanic extremes, is unlikely to be a Processean. A Procssean has at least a fairly even balance of all four of those leanings and characteristics within him, and is willing to recognise, and where necessary enact, each of them, in order to transcend the problems which they create for him.
So it is scarcely surprising that he jumps from a predominance of one to a predominance of another, and sometimes even enacts the apparent anachronism of manifesting two or more of them at once.
We might say that the ideal Processean is an even composite of all three God patterns. And certainly this is a state which all of us must reach before we can finally attain the point of unity, where the patterns merge and become one, and we transcend them all. Then the Spirit of Christ is truly manifested.
So be it.
