Gwineva II

Foreword

It is now a full decade since the first Book of Gwineva was published and we can look back at what ten years of the teachings have accomplished. The group which has developed from the original one is now a unified and consolidated body of committed people who have learned a lot about organisation and collective working. From a gathering of individuals with widely differing outlooks, the group has developed into a cohesive and mutually supportive body of like-minded people.

In this, her second book, Gwineva has elaborated on some of her teachings and these teachings, together with those of other ‘Guides’*, form a cohesive body of books of wisdom specifically directed towards enhancing the quality of life. Those attempting to divorce the teachings from their everyday personal lives deprive themselves of the major proportion of the benefits.

There has been some confusion as to the nature of ‘The Cause’ which Gwineva has mentioned on several occasions. She has clarified it by stating that it embodies three fundamental concepts: First, the enhancement of love, to the effect that it is restored to its proper place in the lives of individuals. To do this requires a complete re-orientation of social attitudes in relation to this supreme emotion. The concept of True Love is something which the conditioned minds of individuals are finding increasingly difficult to comprehend. Second, the re-establishment of traditional family values which, today, are often derided by a society which not only condones but also actively promotes attitudes conducive to the disintegration of family life. In fact, dysfunctional families are rapidly becoming the norm. The third concept is the restoration of congenial relationships conducive to goodwill and harmony among men and women. At an intimate level, between the sexes, the situation is chaotic, because it is far easier to enter into a defective relationship than into a stable, compatible one. The pitfalls of paradoxical compatibility have to be thoroughly understood. *See Bibliography.

Ideally, Gwineva’s first book should be read and studied prior to this one. A superficial skimming through will be quite unproductive, but such is human nature that many will accept whatever conforms to their own concepts and reject that which may disturb their minds.

Gwineva has previously stated that her teachings have to stand or fall on their own merits; they should be accepted in accordance with the degree to which they promote good and counteract the negative influences in the world. She wishes to be regarded as no more than a name to a set of guidelines and body of teachings. Where this has served a desirable end, she has resorted to earthly sources of information.

Gwineva’s teachings are also a call to service and it is sincerely hoped that those who read these books will be stimulated and motivated to pursue the matter further.
