This presentation introduces a fascinating,
provocative and controversial book called Star Guests, Design for
Mortality, one of the first volumes in the writings and
channeled discourses compiled by William Dudley Pelley beginning in
the late twenties. He moved to New York following a successful stint
of writing novels and screenplays in Hollywood, preceded by an
adventurous career as a roving journalist and war correspondent in
Eastern Europe and Russia. This came during and following the First
World War, coinciding with the Bolshevik Revolution and
establishment of the Soviet Union. From that experience, he began a
crusade against communism in all its forms, including those arising
in the United States. The earlier parts of his life are a story that
could be about a character found in novels and movies. During the
politically volatile 1930s, Pelley rather quickly became a key
figure in American right wing politics, fiercely opposing the
Roosevelt Administration and our involvement in the Second World
War. For what were essentially thought crimes, he spent time in a
federal lockup after a conviction for so-called “sedition”. He was
released in 1950, apparently after swearing to avoid anything even
remotely political, which he did. The complete story is quite
absorbing, but we focus only on his metaphysical writing and
publishing ventures during the spiritual-philosophical latter phase
of his life.
William Dudley Pelley is America’s forgotten
mystic and spiritual guide. Many now basic New Age beliefs and
paradigms spring from this same era, not only from Pelley, but from
contemporaries such as Guy and Edna Ballard and the popular I-AM
Movement. When Pelley began publishing in 1950, this coincided with
the beginning of modern interest in UFOs, alien life forms and more.
George Hunt Williamson and other key figures in the UFO movement
spent time working and studying with Soulcraft. Not only that,
Soulcraft doctrines preceded the Bridey Murphy phenomenon, the works
of J. B. Rhine, Timothy Leary, Thelma Moss, L. Ron Hubbard, Bishop
James Pike and many more.
I have assembled some of the principles which are
meaningful and helpful to me. Please be advised this represents only
a rather small portion of the myriad of mysteries and blessed
teachings revealed in the Soulcraft discourses. Be Well, Enjoy and
STAR GUESTS AND THE SOULCRAFT TEACHINGS
Star Guests is from a manuscript created by
automatic writing sessions, channeled by “discarnate entities” in
1928 and 1929, while the author was in New York. In order to gain
insight into the ancient mysteries, and about our true origins, the
reader must be open to some challenging concepts, literally reaching
to the stars -- to the star system Sirius, to be precise. From
there, spiritual (later corporeal) beings came to earth, committing
sodomy with physical earthly life, creating some strange beings who
images are, to some degree, still with us. These travelers were
immigrants from the star system Sirius. Pelley presents all of this
– and a great deal more -- in an intriguing style in Star Guests
and other books in the series of channeled writings. The automatic
writing sessions eventually produced over one million words.
Beginning in 1950, the volumes (along with several related journals,
newsletters, pamphlets and magazines) were published under the
general heading of Liberation Soulcraft Doctrine.
In Star Guests, Pelley speaks of the
larger publishing project, and expresses his feelings and intense
experiences as the channeler.
“I am not unduly exercised by any experience
which life may allot to me – so long as I feel the assurance that it
is included in the program that determines my cosmic destiny. Having
gone through this myself… the transcendent interpretations I have
been twenty-two years recording, I can only make compensation by
passing it along in honest form to the harassed brother or sister
who has not been so favored. I would be incurring the worst possible
type of karmic debt, I am certain, if I did not do this. As
industriously as I can, in my sunset years, I am recording and
publishing the sixteen books of the Soulcraft Doctrine – of which
this is the fourth. Every mystery or complication which human life
holds, somewhere has explanation or elucidation within these sixteen
volumes. But the drama of the redemption of man is the greatest and
most basic of them all. In Behold Life we had the general
preview of why life functions and achieves in mortal form. In
Thinking Alive we considered most of the realities of Thought as
a creative and motivating universality. In Earth Comes we had
the exposition of the integration of Cosmos and the solar planet on
which we find ourselves in particular. In Star Guests we have
the first broad foundations laid for the drama of Man as a creature
of physical predicament and sensation—that has to be more minutely
examined and assimilated in Adam Awakes.”
[Unless indicated, the following quotations come
from Star Guests.]
RECALLING MEMORIES FROM EONS AGO.
Voices from the clairaudient sessions with
discarnate intelligences speak directly about their purposes and
intentions in our world. This is a spiritual effort to awaken
something deep in our memories, deep within our inner selves,
helping us access elemental mystical archetypal images from long
gone magical days of yore.
“Memory is not Memory if we must forever make new
Thought-Bodies each time we give up our material bodies. Man will
someday know the truth and then he will make new bodies in the image
of God. Make no mistake, we are those now in the Light and we have
much to tell you. ‘Music of the Spheres’ is no idle phrase, but the
center of the mystery of this, our universe.”
“Where there is harmony there is life, and all
discord is death. We of the more harmonious planes, which are next
above the planes of earth, make this statement to you because you
are of that company whose bodies are yet of earth but whose eyes are
opened to perception of the truth. Many of us are with you, not
alone at this moment but in many moments when you are unaware of our
presences. We will make more power for you in all that you undertake
if you will but open yourselves more completely to our touch.” P.
“But there are no barriers in the universe of
Truth! What seem barriers to you are but creations of fear that are
the children of Hate and therefore the antithesis of Love. A Great
Teacher has told you that ‘love casteth out fear.’ We say to you
more than that. Where Love is, no fear can find entrance. When the
sun is high in the heavens, how can there possibly be shadows?” …
“We may not give you more than the smallest
glimpse of the mysteries that we may not reveal to you.” …
“Patience is one of the manifestations of Love,
and without it spiritual development is impossible. Many a spiritual
battle has been lost because the importance of patience was not
fully understood. Patience has no kinship with Resignation. Patience
is positive. Resignation is negative. Do you need further
explanation of that truth?” pp. 20-21.
IN THE LATTER DAYS.
“Great nations are not led of great statesmen, I
tell you. They do the behest of the widely advertised, not the truly
great in heart. They do follow demagogues who rant of war when war
threateneth, and rant of peace when peace is popular. They are
worldly sheep led of blind shepherds who do consort with wolves.” p.
“O My Beloved, have endurance! We are writers of
tales and sawyers of timbers. Verily we shall write epistles unto
the Father and raise dwellings of marble as homes for His people!
Know that the Goodly Company gathereth, that My spirit hovereth anew
above its earthly heads. Know that I go to keep communion with them,
and a covenant with them, and that presently all shall know one
another for the brethren whom they are.” …
“The World knoweth not My true servants’
identities. It considereth them men and women who have brains of
promise and fertility. But my servants know they are more than men
and women. They are divine of essence, making missions to earth for
the Father and Myself. This is their shibboleth: that the Father
holdeth them to an accounting for their responsibilities in this
progressing world!” …
“In the days ahead shall come great disturbances
of Nature; great cataclysms shall fill men’s hearts with alarm;
great international rumblings shall be felt; science shall run riot;
nation and nation shall suffer in common from burnings and floods
and famines and exhaustions. There shall be minor wars. The sons of
men shall cry Peace! Yet behold no peace cometh. These are the signs
and omens.” pp. 218-219.
ANGELS AND DIVINE MESSENGERS COME FORTH.
“The agents of these forces [that reach out to
us] are invariably the Beings whom you describe as Angels. We say
‘invariably’ because because they constitute a special order of
creation higher than man constitutes, and organized to render
specific service. Sometimes this service is fleshly, sometimes it is
purely spiritual. It can be either.” p. 172.
“There are celestial messengers and ‘special
agents’ abroad in Cosmos, who incarnate now and then for particular
purposes in either male or female bodies, depending on temperaments.
Humanity long ago coined the word ‘angels’ to describe these
WE ARE ALL CHRISTS IN SCHOOL.
The Elder Brother is called by several titles
including the Christ and the Man of Nazareth, but also Great
Teacher, Master Teacher, Great Avatar, and Universal Spirit.
Soulcraft teaches that we find the ultimate awareness and
enlightenment within ourselves. This is the spiritual principle
behind the Hindu greeting, “Namaste” – “The Light in me recognizes
the Light in you.” We are made in the image of God, and we receive
the Divine Light so we can share it with others. In several ways,
the Bible affirms this. In the Old Testament Book of Genesis, we are
told we are made in the image of God, and then Jesus tells us in the
New Testament to look within, that the keys to the Kingdom are
already within us.
“It is time to bring humanity an entirely
remodeled concept of the Christian faith, and introduce this Man of
Nazareth to the modern world as an Elder Brother – precisely what He
calls Himself – who stands ready to help and encourage as a loving
older brother would, and does, those of His family and relatives who
need what He is able to supply them. The big thing we’ve got to
alter our concepts to grasp and assimilate is this – WE ARE ALL
CHRISTS IN SCHOOL!”
SOULCRAFT SPEAKS OF OUR MODERN AGE.
“As of this writing– May 20, 1950 – World War
Three is still ahead of us.”
“Great wars are on their way’ the message had
stated in 1929 – and note that ‘wars’ is used in the plural. We live
in an era when the Piscean Age – or celestial month – is closing,
and the Aquarian Age opening. Such periods are attended by vast
social disturbances.” …
“We are subtracting nothing of the divinity and
faith of the Christian religion, to bring to humanity the concept of
the real Elder Brother as we in these modern times are
electronically discovering Him.”
This was channeled in 1928, when radio was barely
on the scene. Could this refer to our more advanced electronic age?
Pelley believed that the early years of the twenty-first century
would bring the transition from the Piscean Age to the Aquarian Age.
Perhaps 2012 is such a time. It means the end of a new cosmic
astrological age, not the end of the world. Pisces is the age of
Water and steam. Aquarius is the age of air, electricity and
THE GOD OF VEGEANCE DOES NOT EXIST.
“We are saying to these times: Forget your
Hebraic ideas of vengeance in all this Deity business and try to
grasp from His words and preachments the real Elder Brother as he
is. If he has no evidence of vengeance in His makeup, why need we
pay homage to any God of Vengeance whom He regards as Father? As a
matter of fact, He tells us specifically that to think of the
Personage whom He regards as Father as being vengeful, is to deal in
“THE ANCIENT OF DAYS IN THE UNIVERSE IS AN
AUGMENTED AND GLORIFIED CHRIST, A HUNDRED TIMES MORE UNDERSTANDING
AND COMPASSIONATE THAN THE MAN OF NAZARETH EVER HOPED TO BE!”
THE GREAT DEPARTURE.
In another Soulcraft work, Stairs to
Greatness, the Elder Brother, the Master Teacher, the Great
Avatar addresses us with a message.

cajolings and beseechings of Circumstance to produce an effect upon

ASCENDING TO HIGHER LEVELS.
If you’ve come this far in our journey through a
small part of two of the best books in the Soulcraft series, I hope
you have good feelings about what Star Guests and its
companion volumes offer spiritual seekers. Be aware that there are
more than a few teachings and revelations I have not touched on at
all. To learn more, you must seek, but without a doubt, you’ll
prosper if you do. Soulcraft enhances and amplifies whatever
spiritual systems and metaphysical paradigms you may already employ.

FINDING SOULCRAFT PUBLICATIONS.
Some (but less than half) of the original book
titles are still available. Reprinting is doubtful, so get them
while you can.
By the way, I have over 1000 pages of Soulcraft
newsletters from the late 1950s entitled “Purposes of the Infinite,
Private Weekly Transcripts of Psychical Proceedings for Students in
the Soulcraft Fellowship, Inc. -- Confidential”. If interested in
discussing this, please write.
PART TWO: THE SOULCRAFT LIBERATION DOCTRINES
William Dudley Pelley never really tried to start
a new religion or sect, but in many ways, the Soulcraft Liberation
doctrines redefined the basic understanding of the Christ, who
manifested to Pelley as the Elder Brother beginning in 1928-29, and
was also called by other names. Soulcraft says we are all “Christs
in School”, realizing our own inner godhood and divinity. In
essence, this reflects the ancient Indian Vedic scriptures with
their basically pantheistic theology. God is all, all is God, and we
can all achieve various levels of divinity as we climb the Karmic
ladder to ever higher levels. As you know, this is now a basic creed
among New Age and metaphysical groups, often reflecting basic
METEMPSYCHOSIS IN THE BIBLE.
Apart from the religions of ancient India,
several others preach similar doctrines. Today’s Gnostic Christians
and New Age movements, as well as certain sects of Kabalistic
Judaism, believe in reincarnation. Metempsychosis is, of course, a
key Soulcraft doctrine. Indeed, as pointed out in the Soulcraft
discourses, that we live other lives is a teaching of Jesus in the
New Testament. This appears in several synoptic texts: Matthew 17,
Mark 9 and Luke 9. It seems clear that past lives are the real
topic. As we know, the Roman Church co-opted the emerging Christian
religion and took over its scriptures in the early 300s. Once in
charge, they removed many controversial things, such as those having
to do with metempsychosis. However, for whatever the reason, they
left some texts largely intact. The one that follows has to do with
the Transfiguration, which was already established as a doctrine in
early Christianity. With the exception of Origen, the early Church
Fathers avoided reincarnation altogether, just as their counterparts
do today. Consider what he said about the secret teachings of Jesus.
“The secret of the kingdom of God has
been given to you. But to those on the outside
everything is said in parables so that, 'they may
be ever seeing but never perceiving, and ever hearing
but never understanding….” Mark 4:11-12.
"He replied, "The knowledge of the secrets of
the kingdom of heaven has been given to you, but not
to them. Whoever has will be given more, and he will
have an abundance." Matthew 13:11-12.
“[Jesus] conversed with His disciples in private,
and especially in their sacred retreats, concerning the Gospel of
God; but the words which He uttered have not been preserved, because
it appeared to the evangelists that they could not be adequately
conveyed to the multitude in writing or in speech… and they saw…
what things were to be committed to writing, and how this was to be
done, and what was by no means to be written to the multitude, and
what was to be expressed in words, and what was not to be so
conveyed”. Origen, Contra Celsus, Chap. VI. 18.
Read the texts carefully (also in Mark 9 and Luke
9), and decide for yourself if this speaks of past and future
reincarnations, a doctrine that would have been known by Jesus’
inner circle. But more than that, it was known to early Christians,
especially among the mystical Gnostics, Essenes and others. The
mystical and otherworldly story of the Transfiguration was so
strongly entrenched that even the Roman redactors dared not change
the text too much, much less totally remove it. Hence, the rather
successful tactic has been to simply ignore any references to
reincarnation, not even discussing it other than to cite all sorts
of other texts supposedly refuting it. The verses below are from the
Revised Standard Version.
“For all the prophets and the law prophesized
until John the Baptist, and if you are willing to accept it, he
is Elijah who is to come.” Matthew 11:14.
“And after six days Jesus took with him Peter and
James and John his brother, and led them up a high mountain apart.
And He was transfigured before them, and his face shown like the
sun, and his garments became white as light. And behold there
appeared to them Moses and Elijah, talking with him.” … And as they
were coming down the mountain, Jesus commanded them, ‘Tell no one
the vision, until the Son of man is raised from the dead.’ And then
the disciples asked him, ‘Then why do the scribes say that first
Elijah must come?’ He replied, ‘Elijah does come, and he
is to restore all things; but I tell you Elijah has already come,
and they did not know him, but did to him whatever they pleased. So
also the Son of man will suffer at their hands. Then the
disciples understood he was speaking to them of John the Baptist.”
Matthew 17:1-3; 9-13.
It seems clear to me, but the prelates, priests
and preachers cite other texts to the contrary, refuting any idea
that “ye must be born again” means rebirth in a later life. If you
follow the hypothesis that much of the New Testament was created
from earlier Buddhist writings and stories from ancient India, then
references to metempsychosis don’t sound so strange. But there are
no New Testament manuscripts before the 400s, and a lot can happen
in four hundred years. Any direct references to reincarnation were
surely expunged, beginning with St. Jerome’s Latin Vulgate Bible in
the late 300s. No earlier copies exist. If you think the old monks
just sat around in their hermitages copying, preserving and
illustrating manuscripts, think again! The monks did reproduce and
preserve church approved manuscripts, but also spent time editing
and rewriting the then-available scripture texts, then destroying
all originals. Beyond that, like a literary SWAT team, the monks
hunted down, seized and destroyed any contradictory “heretical”
writings such as those of the Gnostics. Of course as with the
Cathars, the pious churchmen not only burnt the books but the
believers as well.
“A GREAT DOCTRINE GROWETH OUT OF IT.”
“Give thought to that which is introduced to
you by this paper. Give it deep thought and I will reveal a new
incentive to you to carry over the bleak days which are necessary
for humanity to endure that it may arrive at an appreciative
understanding of the rich days. Now we go from you, leaving you to

THE NINE POINTS, A SOULCRAFT SACRAMENT.
In effect, this is a very Christ-centered
doctrine, but within the earlier esoteric traditions of the
Christian Essenes, Gnostics and the later Cathars. Metempsychosis is
a essential theological and philosophical assumption. May you read
and be enlightened.

A CALL TO GREATNESS.
The ASPIRATIONS of a man are the fodder for his
soul. But different men have differing aspirations depending on
their Cosmic gradings. Those of little mein are weak in Cosmic
circumstance; the mighty of the ages are chosen for a diadem. None
can take it from them. Choose ye this day whom ye will serve: God or
God is eternal. Mammon is last night’s squandered
huckstering. What doth it profit a man if he gains the whole world’s
acclamation yet lose his own soul striving to bow to it?
Those who are superior in point of Cosmic age
bend knee to this accolade.
They know the plights and circumstance and accord
us with a blessing.
“Every last one of us in this body to learn grace
under pressure. If the pressure were lacking, so too would be
incentive. The prayer of every truly valiant person should be, Lord,
make my future hard.”
When you pray it – and take it – you’ll be
finished with further need of earth-life and probably won’t come
back to it.
Thus the Stairs to Greatness! Ever so be it!
[End quoting.] Stairs to Greatness, 1956.
We are a free and worthy people, not weaklings or
cowards. We disown our fears and cast them far from us. They are
largely self-generated anyway. Some of you are especially called,
known in Soulcraft as the Goodly Company, preparing for the Great
Coming. We are at a New Age, passing from Pisces to Aquarius, right
now. You probably know who you are but some may just now be
reawakening. Come forth, O Goodly Company. This is your time. Listen
and mark it well. The Great Avatar, the Ever-Living and Undying
Christos, is coming at the Turning of the Cosmic Cycles. He returns,
as always, at the proper places and proper times to the proper
people as determined by our Eternal Father-Mother God, the Great and
Mighty I-AM, the Ancient of Days.
If the Great Avatar is not already among us, it
can’t be very long now. Be aware; watch for the signs. As revealed
in Star Guests, thirteen is the number and seven times seven
is the number of days.
I close with the loving and sincere hope that
some of you are drawn to know more. If so, start your journey by
reading Star Guests or any of theSoulcraft books.
EXPLORING THE REALITIES
An Essay in Metaphysics and Historiography
By Dr. Harrell Rhome
....In his 1833
magnum opus, Anacalypsis, Godfrey Higgins addresses
a key theological and philosophical matter. The forces that conflict today
have been around from the earliest times of human existence.
Higgins traces both the linguistic and spiritual roots to the Indo-Aryan
of India, but in particular the Zoroastrian religion of Persia.
These pagan Magian traditions quickly made their way into the belief systems
practiced by the Semitic peoples of the desert.
“Thus we see here that the doctrines of the Persians and that of the Jews,
and we shall see afterwards, of the Gnostics and Manichean Christians,
were in reality the same. The following is Dean Prideaux's account
of the religion of Zoroaster: ‘The chief reformation which he made
in the Magian religion was in the first principle of it; for whereas before they
had held the being of two first causes, the first light, or the good god,
who was the author of all good; and the other darkness, or the evil god,
who was the author of all evil; and that of the mixture of those two,
as they were in a continued struggle with each other....’
THE OCCULT ORIGINS
OF THE AMERICAN NATION By Dr. Harrell Rhome
......Let’s start in the beginning. We are, more often than not,
told that we are a Christian nation, founded on solid
Biblical principles, but this does not hold up under scrutiny.
Far from it! Practically all the key figures in the colonial
separatist movement were Freemasonic occultists.
If they publicly practiced a religion other than that, it was
usually philosophical Deism and/or ultra liberal semi-Christian
Unitarianism and Universalism.
Even then, none were ever known as regular churchgoers.
Religion, as expressed in various Christian creeds and confessions,
means utterly nothing to devout Freemasons, especially at the
levels of the higher adepts.
They see themselves as above all of that.....
