43-2016 - A Recent Letter to All Arcane Students On Current World Conditions - January 8,2016

"During this world transition period, an increasing amount of energy is flowing into human consciousness from a variety of sources.  And as the Great Invocation* is an instrument for assisting this inflow, it's perhaps not surprising that "the primary result of the correct use of the Great Invocation (as far as humanity is concerned) is acceleration." Energy is being converted into activity at an alarming rate, and ironically, this may be an indication that this world prayer is being used effectively.  Many people comment that in today's world, there is a sense of time flying by and things spinning out of control. (Like we're on a merry-go-round that's spinning out of control -mf)   Crises are piling up relentlessly on a national and international level; world karma is intensifying and both the higher and the lower aspects of human nature are being stimulated as never before.

To many this picture seems bleak but seen with the "inner eye" a different picture emerges.  Through the leadership of the "New Group of World Servers", the will-to-good and goodwill are flourishing as never before - everywhere enlightened thinkers are inspiring humanity with a vision that is full of hope. And it is through the energy that this group wield that the problem of acceleration will be ameliorated through the steady transference of speed into harmonious motion.  This process translates the rajasic quality of mental/emotional/physical substance into the rhythm and harmony of sattva***.  As this transpires,  more enlightened human consciousness will steadily gain control of time and space.

An advanced stage of this process is described in J. H. Woods' commentary on one of the yoga sutras of Patanjali:  "When freed from obscuration by impurity, the sattva of the thinking-substance, the essence of which is light, has pellucid steady flow not over whelmed by the rajas and the tamas.  This is the clearness."  Alice A. Bailey adds that "there is an interesting analogy between the inertia (or tamas) aspect of matter and the condition of the bodies of the yogi when in the highest samadhi.  Then the sattvic or rhythmic motion is so complete that to the eye of the average man a condition of quiescence is achieved which is the sublimation of the  tamasic or inert condition of the densest substance."

While this sutra concerns the individual  yogi, the process also applies to the world situation and is the basis of the unfolding Plan for humanity.  The Tibetan writes, "the Plan as at present sensed, and for which the masters are steadily working, might be defined as follows:  It is the production of a subjective synthesis in humanity and of a telepathic interplay which will eventually annihilate time.  It will make available to every man all past achievements and knowledges, it will reveal to man the true significance of his mind and brain and make him the master of that equipment and will make him therefore omnipresent and eventually open the door to omniscience."*

These comments open up a rich field of thought on human destiny and the leadership role and responsibilities of esoteric groups.  It highlights the need for those undergoing esoteric training to work towards that continuity of consciousness between the outer and inner realms which to date has not proceeded as the Hierarchy had hoped.****  It is with this in mind that we have chosen the following keynote for the 2016 Arcane School conference period: (Conference held in NYC during Month of May)

Let the group strive towards that subjective synthesis and
telepathic interplay which will eventually annihilate time

As mentioned in last month's letter, the challenge of our times is to seek that stillness and poise, in the midst of all the clamor of our times, wherein a telepathic sensitivity to the vibrations of the various grades of hierarchical workers is attained.  As we move into the New Year, may the group be inspired with the insight and illumination needed for the work ahead."

Normally, I would not put information like the above out to be digested by the public; but we have been so stressed and overburdened in every area of our lives that it was like a gift sent to show us that those of Hierarchy who are diligently working behind the scenes and can see the "whole picture" see this situation as a great step forward - that the very stress that we are undergoing is forcing us from inertia Tamas into suttva that state of activity while in bliss, in other words, subjugating the three lower bodies mental, emotional and etheric/physical and working from the highest mental plane of jiva - that of the Solar Angel or Soul also known as the Holy Christ Self, mediator between the Monad, or I AM or Higher Self and our three lower bodies that reside in the third dimension.

Although we are not at that stage of telepathic dialogue with Hierarchy, we now have the opportunity, if we can control our three lower bodies, to reach that state of consciousness wherein, we are in alignment with the Solar Angel.  In the beginning classes I stated that the Soul/Solar Angel/Holy Christ Self reside about 23-25 feet above our physical body - this state of consciousness was created after the separation during the fourth root race, when we moved away from our Higher Selves to experience the lower planes.  Remember as we moved away from our Higher Selves so did our planet move on its elliptical course away from the great light giver, Helios and Vesta of our physical Sun.  So you could say that we became more dense as the planet cooled and moved further from the light.  We continued to "fall" or separate and our bodies that were once etheric and more gaseous, now became more solid and covered with a skin (or flesh).  The Seven Chakras that now dwell within our etheric body that's attached to our physical body, connect to seven areas within the spinal cord (see more information in the Chakra Lessons) were once visible. 

Over  the past two thousand years our planet has been drawn back along its elliptical course into the light of the Sun once more.  As we progress closer to our God Parents, Helios & Vesta, we  want to shed this denser body (like the snake sheds its skin) and we feel a great desire to re-connect with our own Higher Selves.  Of course, this was all predicted within the new testament when Jesus told the story of the Prodical Son who wandered far and away from the Home of his Father but the call has gone forth for his return and he is finding his way back and the Father prepares a feast for him..."
Well, we're the wanderers who've been away for millions of years, so long, in fact, that we've forgotten who we are.  We've been gone so long and we've moved so far away from our own Higher Selves, that most of Humanity are unaware that we're made up of seven bodies physical/etheric, emotional, mental, soul, causal body, Higher Self - all operating simultaneously at different levels, vibrations and within various planes of matter.

What the Tibetan was conveying to us in the above letter to his students is that we've been asleep and now we are beginning to awaken.  Think about having your feet go to sleep from sitting too long and when you try and wake them up, at first they are numb (inertia or Tamas) then there a prickling sensation letting us know that we're not quite dead, and suddenly our feet are back to normal and we're very happy to know that it wasn't a permanent condition.  Well we're in the prickly stage right now, and it's much more unpleasant than a mere foot, because the whole planet is involved.  We can definitely say that things are stressful at the individual, community, national and international levels at the present time.  You can't turn on the TV without some crazy person taking over a school, a business or an event and wanting to commit some act of revenge or terror depending upon the situation; but the fact of the matter is that as our planet undergoes the increase in frequency, vibration and light, we are also undergoing the same within our seven bodies.  This is wonderful if you're connecting with spirit in all planes, within all bodies and that you have been aligning yourselves with the Solar Angel and then with the Higher Self then you can consider yourself in sattva, (bliss) no longer concerned with what's happening in the world of form, but loving your brothers and sisters enough  that you turn from the light to lift them out of their misery through prayer and service and especially through brotherly love.  This is what the New Group of World Servers is all about - also the men and women of goodwill, who are unaware that they are also working with Hierarchy but are not part of any of the ashrams or Arcane Schools, just good citizens of the world, wanting to help  their fellowman.  The Hierarchy changed much of the way they interacted with mankind when they discovered that there were so many souls who just wanted to serve others and so they dissolved the Master/Disciple relationship and formulated group service.  Since the 1930's and '40's we have made giant steps forward by working as a group, serving mankind through group prayer, meditation and service - but mainly serving as mediators between Hierarchy and mankind.  In the group, there are no leaders, each soul is connected to his brother/sister souls and when coming together they form what is known as a "group soul" - thus they are a working force of light connected directly with Hierarchy.

Before we talk about the rest of mankind, there is one problem that needs to be addressed and that is that all of us need to shut down the outer clamor on a daily basis and go into  meditation deep in order to connect with the Solar Angel - this takes discipline and a very positive attitude, stilling the lower self in order to connect with the Solar Angel.

The last problem that needs to be addressed is the race of man.  I can express it through the following "seed thought" better:
Through the Soul  the Law of Love is manifest;
Through the form the Law of Separation seeks expression.
When the Law of Love supersedes the Law of Separation,
The  many are revolved again into the one.
This is a law to be observed and practiced by all aspirants.

I see  many of the race of men as still seeking expression through the Law of Separation.  They haven't a clue that we're on the move, they are only interested in money, power and acquiring whatever  they THINK they want.  As long as they remain in this state of consciousness they will live in the form life under the Law of Separation.  For the past 500 years this has been a way of life for many; but since the 1950's, we've seen people that are in top executive positions suddenly make a 360 degree turn and decide that they want to do something more fulfilling, like serving mankind in some capacity.  Why do you think they suddenly make such a drastic change in their lives?  Why give up everything that gives them carte blanc in the highest circles to go and serve instead?  

The answer to both questions is simple, they came to a point in their lives where there was a realization that nothing in the material world was really making them happy - something was missing - and being intelligent human beings they began to seek answers to their questions and we all know "the the CALL COMPELS AN ANSWER" so of course, they were now moving from the form-life and the Law of Separation into the SOUL-life and the Law of Love.  It's truly amazing how many people are rapidly changing their whole lives and the lives of their families as the light continues to increase all over the planet.

Now, we also know that it is a fact that where there is GREAT LIGHT there is also GREAT DARKNESS, and an excellent example of this was shown to us when Mother Mary appeared in Yugoslavia; as soon as she appeared the sinister forces moved in and tried in every way to prevent people from coming to the mountain village.  The children were treated like criminals but regardless whenever the Mother came into the atmosphere of Earth, every child knew instantly that she was near and they came from every direction to be with her.  

The speeding up of our planet, our time, our frequencies and vibrations has opened the doors to many among us to seek a higher standard of brotherhood and equality among all peoples; yet, at the same time, we are seeing those who refuse to move with the flow of light and who remain in the past dwelling on all the wrongs and building a hatred towards all those who are against their religious or political ideology.  We've seen the lack of respect people who are supposed to be our representatives in congress and the senate have towards our president.  When you look at the overall picture, the leaders of these politicians are all southern, still seeing an African American as chattel - they cannot comprehend how an African American got to be President.  Why?  Because they are still hoisting the rebel flag and still consider a yankee as their enemy.  The sad thing here is that their children are taught the same prejudices and carry the hatred on generation after generation.  We see a similar problem in the Middle East.  First of all with the Jews and secondly with all Christians. Now we have a new group that is spreading its propaganda over the internet and recruiting young people who have no idea who they are dealing with.   If this isn't enough to give you chills, we've have an unbalanced leader in the Far East, who is playing with nuclear energy and as the scientists confirmed yesterday, he'll play long enough until he actually develops the monster bomb.  Let's see what the Tibetan has to say about the evolution of man:

"All evolution is cyclic in nature, nations and races pass through the same cycles of childhood, growth, manhood, maturity, decline and disappearance, as does every human being.  But behind these cycles the triumphant spirit of man moves on from height to height, from attainment, to attainment and towards an ultimate goal which as yet no man visions but which is summed up for us in the possibility of being in the world as Christ was, this is the hope held out to us in the New Testament and by all the Sons of God down the ages and in every land and by all religious faiths."

The Good News is!"  In every nation there are those who see a abetter vision of a better world, who are thinking and talking and planning in terms of humanity, and who realize that those who form the various groups, political, religious, educational, and labor -are men and women and essentially, if unconsciously brothers.  They see the world whole and  are working towards an inevitable unification; they recognize the problems of the nations, great and small, and the difficult situation in which the minorities today find themselves, they know that the use of force produces results which are not truly effective (for the cost is far too great) and are usually transient.  They realize  that the only true hope is an enlightened public opinion and that this must be the result of sound educational methods and just and exact propaganda"

The Tibetan's Prophesy for the Future:
The effect of color on people, animals and units in the vegetable kingdom will be studied and the result of those studies will be the development of etheric vision or the power to see the next grade of matter with the strictly physical eye.  Increasingly will people think and talk in terms of light, and the effect of the coming developments in this department of human thought will be triple.

a.  People will possess etheric vision
b. The vital or etheric body, lying at the inner structure of the outer form, will be seen and noted and studied in all kingdoms of nature.
c.  This will break down all barriers of race and all distinctions of color, the essential brotherhood of man will be established.  We shall see each other and all forms of divine manifestation as light units of varying degrees of brightness and shall talk and think increasingly in terms of electricity, of voltage of intensity and of power.  The age and status of men, in regard to the ladder of evolution, will be noted and become objectively apparent, the relative capacities of old souls, and young souls will be recognized, thereby reestablishing on earth the rule of the enlightened".

From (A Treatise on White Magic, p. 334)

The spiritual tide sweeping throughout the world today is stronger than ever before.  This tide of spiritual understanding, will supersede theology; experience wrought out in the crucible of daily life will give us a new attitude towards our fellow human beings.  To bring about this new era in human living, three practical truths must be recognized".

1.  "That the errors and mistakes of past centuries, culminating in the present wars, are the joint errors and mistakes of humanity as a whole.  This recognition will lead to the establishing of the principle of sharing so needed in the world today".

2,  "That there are no problems and conditions which cannot be solved by the will-to-good. Goodwill nourishes the spirit of understanding and fosters the manifestation of the principle of cooperation.  This cooperative spirit is the secret of all right human relations and the enemy of competition"".

3. "That there is a blood relationship between men which, when recognized, dissolves all barriers and ends the spirit of separateness and hate.  The peace and happiness of each is the concern, therefore, of all.  This develops the principle of responsibility and lays the foundation of right corporate action."
