Trust

7/4/99

Trust

Let us itemize the discussed qualities so far:

(1) Soul contact

(2) Holding the mind steady in the light

(3) Detachment when necessary.

(4) The ability to either send or receive

(5) Reflection – contemplation

(6) Talent.

(7) The power to initiate

(8) The ability to create and sense a point of tension.

(9) Willingness to sacrifice

(10) Discernment

(11) Perseverance

(12) Inclusiveness

(13) Harmlessness

(14) Sensitivity

(15) Trust

Question concerning number 15: What are the areas where the disciple needs to demonstrate his trustworthiness as far as the inner teachers are concerned?

How much should he trust others?

How many times have each of us met someone in our lives who said something like this to us: “What’s the matter don’t you trust me?” This then seems to play upon the person’s guilt and he often gives in thinking he is doing a virtuous act and trusts the person whom he does not know that well with valuables of some kind.

Then, a short time after the trust was given, the person who trusted finds himself totally betrayed.

After this happens two or three times the trusting one often turns to the other extreme and then trusts no one and often becomes bitter.

Both of these extremes are in bad judgment and not the way of the disciple.

The example of the Brotherhood of Light is a good light for us to follow here.

As one approaches discipleship and gains a desire to serve he tackles the problems of maya, controls his physical body and passions. Once this is accomplished, does the Brotherhood the trust him?

Not yet.

Why?

Because he can still be led completely astray by glamour and wind up doing more harm than good for the work.

Is he of no use then?

He can be of great use, but the Brotherhood does not trust him to always take the right path for they know he is going to do take wrong paths several times yet. They will use him a much as possible with this in mind, but cannot give him or her the great responsibilities.

As the disciple progresses on the path he eventually overcomes glamour and is no longer deceived through wrong emotions, overblown ego and most guilt.

Does the Brotherhood now trust him?

Their trust in him is increased as well as his power to serve, but still he is not trusted to always follow the path of light and therefore is still limited in endowments trusted to him.

Why?

Because he is not yet free from the great problem of illusion which can trap a person with reasonable purity, ego under wraps and a strong desire to serve.

Then in the next round of progress the disciple slays this seemingly last dragon in the path and stands free of illusion, glamour and maya.

Is he now trusted?

Yes. He is now given a high degree of trust that he will not stray toward the left hand path and his responsibilities are increased according to his talents and abilities.

So is he trusted completely?

No one is trusted to never make mistakes. Even now the trust given to him will be with the realization that mistakes will be made, but the vision of the path will remain.

Is it not possible then that an adept can fall to the dark side?

No matter how high we go we always have free will. However, while walking in the light after basic illusion is overcome the light is almost impossible to betray. Nevertheless, there does come another round of temptation when one progresses to a higher level as illustrated by the fall of Lucifer in the Bible.

Here is a comment on this made by Djwhal Khul:

“Again, in the council chamber of the Most High, there has not always been peace and understanding, but at times, war and disruption; this is made abundantly clear by several of the stories in the Old Testament. Symbolically speaking, some of the sons of God fell from their high estate, led, at one time, by “Lucifer, Son of the Morning”. This “fall of the angels” was a tremendous event in the history of our planet, but was nevertheless only a passing and interesting phenomenon in the history of the solar system,”

Esoteric Psychology, Vol 1 pages 394-5

The disciple follows the example of the Brotherhood of Light and makes others earn trust before he gives it to them unconditionally. He always tries to give others the “benefit of the doubt,” but where great harm can result by a betrayal he becomes very cautious and will watch his associates carefully until he can ascertain which parts of their makeup can be trusted and which cannot, which circumstances they will handle correctly and which they will not.

Even though one who trusts too much may be a great guy and have a strong desire to serve such a one cannot yet be an accepted disciple for he may wind up trusting a part of the work to a con man who could destroy the whole.

Next we’ll talk about balance and in the meantime give you the seventeenth quality.

Rick said something to the effect that if courage is not one of the qualities it should be. I agree, but many show significant courage before discipleship is reached. A certain type of courage is looked for that reaches past the physical to the astral and mental levels and beyond. Djwhal Khul teaching through Alice A. Bailey beautifully coined the phrase “Divine Carelessness,” but said virtually nothing about it. Nevertheless, this quality of courage we shall call the art of being divinely careless is the characteristic looked for.

Contemplate this enigmatic phrase and tell us… Why in the world would this be a quality that is looked for? How do you suppose divine carelessness is different from the standard carelessness we see all about us?

Glenys just presented a great account of the dangers the signers of the Declaration faced. Were they divinely careless?

McCall Gathering, 2007, Part 23

This entry is part 23 of 54 in the series McCall Gathering 2007

White Magic

JJ: I will just touch some of the basics of “The Treatise On White Magic.” This was the first book by Alice A. Bailey that I had read all the way through. It is not the first book that I bought though. I had just returned from a mission from the Mormon Church. I was 21 years old and going to college in Moscow, Idaho. About 30 miles south is a town called Lewiston and I was exploring a used bookstore there. The bookstore owner came up to me because he realized the books I was looking at was in the weird section or whatever. I have always been interested in unusual material from time I was 6.

Anyway he takes this book off the shelf and says, “You would probably be interested in this book.” It was “Letters On Occult Meditation” by Alice A. Bailey. Now for a guy raised in a fundamental religion the word “occult” is normally a turn-off but for some reason it attracted me and I thought, well it does sound interesting so I will look through it.

Then I looked through the list of all the books published by Alice A. Bailey. I saw “A Treatise On Cosmic Fire” and I thought, what in the world is that? A Treatise on White Magic, A Treatise on the Seven Rays, These were fanciful sounding titles and it would be interesting to see what these books are about. So I bought the book on meditation and I took it home sat down, opened up and read about 3 or 4 pages and I thought, whoa! For one thing I got to the part about reincarnation which challenged me for the church taught that reincarnation was the doctrine of the devil. I thought, “Even though this writer believes in reincarnation, this person really sounds like she knows what she is talking about more than any philosophical writing I have ever read.”

For some reason I told myself that I was not ready to read it yet, so I closed it up and put it on the shelf. It stayed there for about three years. Then I was in another bookstore about three years later in Portland and I was browsing through the books and I was kind of at a low point in my life and I looked up and saw The Treatise on White Magic and I thought, “I am going to buy this book.” It was a lot more reading than the book on meditation and I was going to read it all the way through and see what the teachings were all about. I had been thinking about it for three years now and I thought I was ready to read one of the books all they way through at that time.

So I bought that book, went home and forced myself to read it. When I first started reading it, it did not make any sense and I was little bit like Annie and I thought maybe I would learn a little magic from this book thinking of the common understanding of what we think magic is. As you read along you think, well where is the magic?

Audience: Laughter

JJ: But anyway, as I read along I found a couple points that stimulated my interest and agreed with a number of principles that I had learned on my own and by the time I had finished the book I closed it and said I was going to read everything she has ever written because this is the highest knowledge that I have ever read and from that point on I was hooked on the Alice A. Bailey material. My book on White Magic is so worn out that it does not even have a cover on it anymore.

The question we might ask is, what is white magic? If white magic is not what Annie and I were expecting when we first sat down and read it then what is white magic and why is it called magic? The answer is partially revealed in that rule that Annie said was her favorite and is mine also, Rule # 8,

“The Agnisuryans respond to the sound. The waters ebb and flow. Let the magician guard himself from drowning at the point where land and water meet. The midway spot, which is neither dry nor wet, must provide the standing place whereon his feet are set. When water land and air meet there is the place for magic to be wrought.”

Where water land and air meet… visualize this spot in your mind. Now we have a bunch of water out there and then we have land and air. They all meet in a spot that is neither wet nor dry – visualize this in your mind – where is that spot, where magic occurs? It is hard to visualize a place where land water and air meet which is neither wet nor dry. It is not a spot that you can really touch with your finger is it? This is the place where soul contact is made. And where soul contact is made, you bring down the magical powers of the soul and magic does occur and it is not magic as we think of it. You kind of think that when most people first buy a book like this – they are probably thinking of tricks like a common magician might do but the ultimate white magician according the Bailey books and the Master Djwhal Khul who authored them through her was…? Who was the Ultimate magician?

Audience: Christ

JJ: Jesus, yes, Jesus was the Greatest White Magician in our recorded history for he did many magical things. He turned water into wine, walked on water, healed the sick, raised the dead, had a resurrection, He did a lot of interesting magical things. Now none of us are as accomplished as Him but we can still do the magical works of the soul. When we had our healing session some people felt energy come down and enter into them and it produced some results. Some had more results than others because of that point which is neither wet nor dry, where land, air and water meet within them.

Water is symbolic of the soul, land is symbolic of physical reality, and air is symbolic of the mind and also the higher worlds. So where the three worlds meet within us is that point where soul contact can be made and magical things can occur. I have seen magic occur sometimes in my life and then other times I have been somewhat frustrated and when I really wanted the magic to occur it did not occur. There are so many things behind whether or not a miraculous event occurs. For instance in healing, the person’s karma, the person’s belief system, the blockage that is within him, the lessons that he has to learn all kinds of things, but every once in a while you have the magical flow of the soul occur and the energy happens and a genuine miracle will occur. How many here have heard me tell about the miracle of the quarters? I told somebody, was it you?

Audience Female member: Yes

JJ: Do you mind if I tell it again?

Audience female member: Not at all!

JJ: Do you know why I want to tell it again? Because I just found two quarters in my shower not ten minutes ago! Laughter!

Audience: I had a toad jump out from underneath me in the shower on one of the wooden things in there! Then I looked down and there was another one and he jumped at me!

The Real Jesus

121

Aug 19, 2016

The Real Jesus

Stephane gave a very good rundown giving a great overview, though some of the details are in dispute about the possibility of Jesus being patterned after a previous Jewish teacher such as Yeishu ben Pandeira. The problem is that there is no way to positively prove by historical research any of the theories about Jesus, among which are:

(1) He was a real historical person as presented in the Gospels.

(2) He was a historical person, but greatly embellished by the gospels.

(3) He was a historical person, but inspired by a different person in history than Jesus of the Gospels. Among these are Yeishu ben Pandeira as well as Apollonius.

(4) He was a completely fictional character created to control the masses.

(5) The life of Christ was a fictional allegory written by mystics to use as a teaching vehicle.

Stephane made about as good of a case as possible for the real Jesus being Yeishu ben Pandeira. Perhaps the strongest point for the Theosophically inclined is that HPB indicated that Jesus of the gospels was patterned after Yeishu ben Pandeira.

I tend to not accept a truth merely because she said it. I do give a lot of weight to her words as I believe she had higher contacts as well as being extremely intelligent. Among all those who have come in contact with the masters she had the sharpest mind in my opinion.

Even so, I think her words were far from infallible and few of them represented actual words from masters. I think she did receive a lot of inspiration and some detailed facts, but wrote them all down in her own language, using her own intelligence. Thus I read all she writes in the light of the soul.

On the other hand, Alice A. Bailey, though intelligent, was not as savvy as HPB, but did write the words of the Master DK pretty much word for word as given to her. In fact, I think the greatest proof that she had higher contact is to read a book written by her and then one by DK. The difference is profound.

So do I accept DK’s words without question then?

No. I do not accept anything without running it by my mind and Higher Self. However, DK is an earned authority with me and I give his words, perhaps more weight than any other author. If I come across something that does not seem logical I will then study them from every angle trying to see if I missed something or perhaps there is meaning beyond the obvious.

Thus when HPB suggests that the person of Jesus was inspired by Yeishu ben Pandeira I do not automatically accept it though I do give it weight and study out the possibility. When DK says that the Master Jesus was also Apollonius of Tyanna the red flag of a possible error goes up, but I still give the statement a lot of weight because I have proven to myself other things he said that seemed strange or unbelievable in the past. I therefore look at and consider all possibilities that could conform to the idea that Jesus was Apollonius.

Being able to give weight to a teacher’s words is important because if that teacher is truly inspired then you also can be inspired by his words.

That said I see number of problems with the idea that Yeishu ben Pandeira was the person that some writer used as a pattern from which to create the life of the Jesus of the gospels. Let us look at the pros and cons of the idea.

Pros:

(1) They were both said to be miracle workers.

(2) Another name for Yeishu (or Yeshu or Yesu) ben Pandeira was Yeishu ha-Notzri. “Some have translated this as Jesus the Nazarine.”

(3) Yeishu had five disciples. Two of them, Mattai and Todah, had names similar to the disciples of Jesus being the Hebrew forms of Matthew and Thaddaeus.

(4) They both upset the Jewish authorities and were put to death on the eve of the Passover.

(5) Early Christians were called Nazarenes, a term in use before the Common Era.

Cons

(1) We have very sketchy information on Yeishu ben Pandeira. We know little of his teachings or life.

(2) Yeishu ben Pandeira had five disciples, not twelve, and three of them, Nekai, Netzer and Buni had names one could not associate with the Twelve Apostles.

(3) The Hebrew name for Jesus is generally agreed to be Yeshua, not Yeishu, or Yeshu. Yeshua is of course translated into the English Joshua. It is believed that the Greek word for Jesus, Iesous, was back translated to come up with Yeishu instead of Yeshua. If this is the case then Yeishu ha-Notzri is not the equivalent of Jesus the Nazarine.

(4) If Jesus was patterned after the life of Yeishu ben Pandeira then where did all his teachings and parables come from as well as the story of his ministry? There is little in the life of Yeishu ben Pandeira that could be used for the script of the Gospels.

(5) The main claim to fame for Jesus was the resurrection story. Without this, he would have been lost to history. If the life of Jesus was inspired by Yeishu ben Pandeira then why was there no resurrection story about him also?

This would be like creating a character patterned after George Washington, but making him come back from the dead, something the Washington story does not have in it.

(6) There is quite a bit of evidence that Jesus lived in the beginning of the first century. One of the strongest from non Christian sources is verification from Josephus and Hegesippus that James, the brother of Jesus was a historical person, who was stoned to death in 62 AD. If the brother of Jesus (who is mentioned in the Bible) lived in the first century then Jesus would have lived then also.

For final verification let us look at the actual words of a master (DK) and see what verification we can get about the life of Jesus.

It is true that sometimes DK spoke of obvious symbolism in the life of Jesus, but there can be symbolism behind actual physical events. For instance DK speaks of the baptism as a real event.

“We have an instance of this in the manner the Christ used the body of the initiate Jesus, taking possession of it at the time of the Baptism.”

TCF, Pg 1150

Then he also talks about the symbolism behind baptism.

Here are some other real events indicated by DK in the life of Jesus.

“Behind these words of illusion, glamour and maya, lies TRUTH. This truth is the clear consciousness of Being, of Existence and of essential, initial Reality. That is the reason that Christ stood mute before Pilate who symbolised the human intellect; He knew that no reply could convey meaning to that veiled, inhibited mind.”

Glamour, Pg 240

Also:

“I would remind you that the outstanding characteristic of Jesus of Nazareth, throughout the period prior to the crucifixion, was one of complete silence;”

Rays and Initiations, Page 220

Here DK speaks of Jesus before Pilate as if it were a historical fact. Pilate was a true historical person who was the fifth prefect of the Roman province of Judaea from AD 26–36, right around the time given the Gospels for the crucifixion.

Then there are numerous other references where DK indicates that Jesus was crucified as related in the gospels rather than stoned to death and then hung on a tree.

“The exclamation of the Christ, “Father, not my will, but Thine be done,” indicated His monadic and realised “destiny.” The meaning of these words is not as is so oft stated by Christian theologians and thinkers, a statement of acceptance of pain and of an unpleasant future. It is an exclamation evoked by the realisation of monadic awareness and the focussing of the life aspect within the Whole. The soul, in this statement, is renounced, and the monad, as a point of centralisation, is definitely and finally recognised. Students would do well to bear in mind that the Christ never underwent the Crucifixion subsequent to this episode, but that it was the Master Jesus Who was crucified. The Crucifixion lay behind Him in the experience of the Christ. The episode of renunciation was a high point in the life of the World Saviour, but was no part of the experience of the Master Jesus.

Rays and Initiations, Pages 314-315

Here DK acknowledges the Gospel account of the experience in the Garden of Gethsemane as being a real occurrence as well as the crucifixion. It doesn’t sound like he is just speaking in symbols.

Then there is this:

“It is interesting here to note that the Master Jesus, as He hung upon the Cross, experienced (on a much higher turn of the spiral than is possible to the disciple) the acme and the height of this crisis, though in “His case – being attuned to God and to all God’s children – there swept over Him the sum total of the dilemma of the world disciples and all the agony of the astral awareness of this dilemma, voicing itself in the agonising words: “’My God, My God, why hast Thou forsaken Me.’”

Esoteric Psychology, Page 374

“The Master Jesus on the Cross could not respond to any saving process (even had He desired to do so) because the soul body – as is always the case at the fourth initiation – was destroyed; there was nothing to respond to the evocative power of an outside person, interested or loving. As an adept and as one in whom monadic consciousness was firmly established, the powers then available to Jesus could not be used in the saving of His physical body.”

Esoteric Healing, Page 654

“It was the Master Jesus who ‘died’ and entered into the tomb, thus climaxing His long series of incarnations and ending – by destruction – the hold of matter on the spirit;”

Rays and Initiations, Page 355

Here we have verification of the gospel account of his words on the cross as well as his crucifixion.

In addition, DK seems to subscribe to the fact that there was a literal resurrection of Jesus from the dead, something not identified with any other Jewish figure before him.

“This return to an original state is pictured for us in The New Testament under the story of the Prodigal Son, who said “I will arise and go to my Father,” and by the story of the resurrection in which the Master Jesus arose out of the tomb; the chains of death could not hold Him. At that time of His “rising,” a far more important event took place and the Christ passed through the seventh Initiation of Resurrection and returned back to His original state of Being…”

Rays and Initiations, Pg 730

The fact of the resurrection will be demonstrated during the next few centuries, and the Living Christ will walk among men and lead them onward towards the Mount of Ascension.

The Externalization of the Hierarchy, Pg 471

Finally, the parting words to the disciples are verified

“The final words of the Christ to His apostles, gathered together in the upper chamber (in the Hierarchy, symbolically) were, ‘Lo, I am with you all the days, even unto the end of the age,’ or cycle.”

The Reappearance of the Christ, Page 29

There is some symbology in everything, but overall it does indeed sound like DK subscribes to the basic elements and timeframe of the life of Jesus as being largely historically accurate.

In addition it would add depth to the mystery if Jesus was a reincarnation of Yeishu ben Pandeira – which thing is a real possibility.

Solving the Contradiction

Aug 17, 2016

Solving the Contradiction

Patrick asked me to comment on an inconsistency in the writings of DK that I have worked out. Most of the inconsistencies with himself have been subtle and open to interpretation. However, he had a few seeming inconstancies with physical reality as we know it. I’ll briefly comment on one of them.

Consider this controversial statement from initiation, human and Solar:

“As Apollonius of Tyana, He (Jesus) took the fifth initiation and became a Master of the Wisdom.”

This is perplexing since his main biographer, Philostratus, tells us that he was born in 3 BC and died 97 AD at 100 years of age.

If we go by orthodox records it appears that both Jesus and Apollonius were contemporaries, born around the same time. It seems unreasonable to believe that Jesus and Apollonius are the same person when history describes them as two separate people living during the same time period.

So, what is the answer? There are a number of possibilities. Here are a few.

(1) Reliable records, accepted by scholars, proving the precise birthdate of either man does not exist. Some claim that Apollonius was born later than the date set by Philostratus while other say that Jesus was born much earlier than the orthodox date. Some including Blavatsky places the birth of Jesus over 100 years earlier than orthodoxy: She wrote this in a dialogue with the Abbe Roca, a French Canon of the Roman Catholic Church:

“The legend of which I speak is founded….on the existence of a personage called Jehoshua (from which Jesus has been made) born at Lüd or Lydda about 120 years before the modern era.”

If the birthdate of either of the two men was significantly off then that could solve the conundrum.

It could, but I think the evidence is pretty overwhelming that the story of Jesus is roughly true as written. You’d have to fool people on so many levels to convince them that some guy born a century earlier was the real Jesus. It would be like saying that the real George Washington was born in Spain in the 1630 and did a great work there and his work in America is a fable.

In addition to this Alice A. Bailey and Djwhal Khul seem to accept the gospel story fairly close to as it is written.

What is puzzling is that DK threw out this apparent contradiction to history without making an comment on it and that in the decades to come AAB did not seek for clarification.

(2) The solution most widely accepted by Bailey students is that after the crucifixion Jesus overshadowed Apollonius and thus took the fifth initiation using his body.

If this is what happened then this could explain the contradiction, but this explanation is unlikely.

Why?

Because during his life the disciple Jesus had only attained to the fourth initiation and was not advanced enough to overshadow a disciple as did Christ, who was the equivalent of a sixth degree initiate. I believe that a Master has to be a sixth degree or higher to accomplish this type of overshadowing. You’ll note that D K, a fifth degree initiate, did not overshadow Alice A. Bailey but used mental telepathy to accomplish the work.

(3) Another possibility is that the Higher Self of Jesus projected, not one reflection, but two, into two separate physical bodies. Perhaps this was done with the idea that if one did not succeed in the mission that the other one would.

To me this is the most plausible explanation so far.

There is one more possibility to which I am partial.

(4) Jesus became Apollonius. This is one you have probably not heard before and it goes like this.

Jesus appeared to and worked with the disciples for at least 40 days after his resurrection. After a tremendous word of mouth the various Jewish and Roman authorities became extremely alarmed and made an all-out effort to capture Jesus and make sure he was really dead this time. They would cut off his head and burn the body.

Contrary to popular belief Jesus was not all-powerful and did not have an immortal body. Instead, his body was rejuvenated and restored to good physical condition. Even though he could escape if they placed him in jail, if they caught him off guard and immediately executed him, his body could be destroyed. He thus concluded that his effective work with the disciples had come to an end.

He then had a grand idea to solve the problem. Shortly before his mission to Israel he had met Apollonius and was amazed at how similar in appearance the two were. Apollonius was fed up with the people in the West and told Jesus he was going to the Far East and possibly settle down there.

Jesus then decided to assume the identity of Apollonius and preach his gospel using this new identity. After telling only a few trusted disciples about the plan he traveled a safe distance from Jerusalem and began his work with the new identity and, as Apollonius, did a work that earned him he fifth initiation and became a Master of Wisdom.

Words of Eternal Life

12

Words of Eternal Life

Part 1

Communion

I consider the following quote from the Old Commentary, given by Djwhal Khul through Alice A. Bailey, to be the greatest words in his or any writings available to the public on the planet.

“When communion is established, words are forthwith used, and mantric law assumes its rightful place, provided that the One communicates the words and the three remain in silence.

“When response is recognized as emanating from the three, the One, in silence, listens. The roles are changed. A three-fold word issues from out the triple form. A turning round is caused. The eyes no longer look upon the world of form; they turn within, focus the light, and see, revealed, an inner world of being. With this the Manas stills itself, for eyes and mind are one.

“The heart no longer beats in tune with low desire, nor wastes its love upon the things that group and hide the Real. It beats with rhythm new; it pours its love upon the Real, and Maya fades away. Kama and heart are close allied; love and desire form one whole – one seen at night, the other in the light of day….

. . . . . . .

“When fire and love and mind submit themselves, sounding the three-fold word, there comes response.

“The One enunciates a word which drowns the triple sound. God speaks. A quivering and a shaking in the form responds. The new stands forth, a man remade; the form rebuilt; the house prepared. The fires unite, and great the light that shines: the three merge with the One and through the blaze a four-fold fire is seen.”

Treatise on White Magic, Pages 75-76

It may be interesting to take a closer look and see what we can gleam from this.

Here is the first paragraph:

When communion is established, words are forthwith used, and mantric law assumes its rightful place, provided that the One communicates the words and the three remain in silence.

What communion needs to be established? The beginning of all spiritual communication starts with the soul, or the Higher Self. Then later it reaches to the Monad, the Higher Self to the soul, our personal Father in Heaven.

There are, of course degrees of communion, but here it is referring to one who has made a solid link that can be tapped into at will when the attention is focused.

words are forthwith used”

Don’t we all use words whether we are soul infused or not? Yes, but this is not referring to just any words. These are “Eternal Words” and explained in my book of the same name. DK also calls them “words of power.”

He lets us know more about these words:

“and mantric law assumes its rightful place.”

So these words he is talking about are just mantras, right?

Not quite; these words are not just any mantra, but those that are in harmony with “mantric law.”

Many man made mantras are not in harmony with matric law and even those in harmony with the soul must be spoken through spiritual impulse to be in accordance with mantric law.

Next he gives us the criteria that make the seeker in harmony with mantric law:

“provided that the One communicates the words and the three remain in silence.”

So here we see the key to personal words of power. The One, The Higher Self, must communicate or be the sender of the words and to receive them the three must remain in silence.

Who are the three?

The main three are the physical/etheric body, the astral/emotional and the mental. Another correspondence is the throat/sacral, the heart/solar plexus and the head centers which are focused in receiving mode.

The text continues:

“When response is recognized as emanating from the three, the One, in silence, listens. The roles are changed. A three-fold word issues from out the triple form.”

What is the response? There must be a registration to a communion with the Higher Self from the mind, the emotions and on down to registration in the physical brain. Then after conscious registration there must be a response. This is important because many messages from the Higher Self are either ignored or dismissed.

And what should be the response? There were words commutated to the lower self and all the parts of that self must cooperate and embrace and act upon the words.

Then we are told the response must be “recognized”?

By whom?

Of course, this is the Higher Self, but what needs to be understood here is the significance of the recognition. The Higher Self recognizing a response from all three bodies, as if they were one body, is very significant. This means the communication from the Higher Self was received, embraced and acted upon with no part of the personality in resistance.

Such a thing is a cause of celebration in the higher spheres.

“The roles are changed. A three-fold word issues from out the triple form.”

How is it that the roles are changed? Quite simple. Instead of the lower self attempting to listen and understand words from the Higher, the Higher is now focussing itself and concentrating to see what is coming from the lower. The first rule of white magic is at play here:

The Solar Angel collects himself, scatters not his force, but, in meditation deep, communicates with his reflection.

And what is the Higher Self listening for?

“A three-fold word issues from out the triple form.”

This three-fold word must issue out from the triple form or from all the bodies of form, the physical, astral and mental.

So what then is the three-fold word?

To solve this mystery we must not look for a word as generally understood by humanity. Esoterically, a word is an encapsulated thought, or even the combination of thought and action.

The threefold word the Higher Self seeks to register is a harmonious vibration coming from the three bodies of form. These three words are like three notes that form a harmonious chord that is a part of a great musical composition. A three-fold word is created when all three bodies submit themselves and then act upon the true perception of higher will.

When the Higher Self listens and senses a three-fold vibration that is tuned to Spirit as well as itself a great event is witnessed:

“A turning round is caused.”

The disciple has learned to hold his mind steady in the light and understands that things eternal and spiritual are of much more value than the attractions of the material world. Therefore:

“The eyes no longer look upon the world of form; they turn within, focus the light, and see, revealed, an inner world of being.”

So, how is it that “the eyes no longer look upon the world of form?” Don’t we all, high and low, who live in this world have to pay attention to it?

It is acknowledged that the disciple is to live in the world but not be of the world. He has found the inner kingdom of God and realizes this is his true home and that is where his heart and focus is. The physical eyes and brain are aware of the material world and function in it but his focus has changed from the past. Now he is totally committed to seeing the spiritual and giving it priority over the physical.

By giving the inner his attention he becomes aware of the inner light and realizes that he must focus on it as well as focus the light itself if he is to dispel illusions. Through this focus he sees “revealed, an inner world of being.”

“With this the Manas stills itself, for eyes and mind are one.”

Manus is the mind and must still itself to see the inner world as well as the fact that the attractiveness of the inner world causes the mind to withdraw attention or be still to the outer world. “Be still and know that I am God” is the keynote here.

This paragraph ends with this curious phrase: “for eyes and mind are one.”

Few have considered the eyes and mind as being one. After all, the eyes are for seeing and the mind for thinking, right?

This is true for the average person, but as the pilgrim advances upon the path and taps into the higher mind he finds he accesses higher vision also and what is seen in the vision is instantly understood, and what is understood is instantly seen, for the eyes and mind are one. There is a lot of depth of meaning to this phrase and would be a good seed thought for meditation.

Part 2

Mastering Low Desire

The disciple is now that the stage where he and the Father are one. The Will of God is manifest through his lower self on earth as it is through the Higher Self in heaven.

At this stage:

“The heart no longer beats in tune with low desire, nor wastes its love upon the things that group and hide the Real.”

Is there a difference in the beating of the physical heart of one who is soul infused and one who is not? There may actually be some subtle differences discovered if the subject were ever investigated, as spiritual influences do create causes that ripple down to the physical plane.

Obviously it is talking about heart energy which lies beyond the physical. Would this be the etheric heart center then?

That and more. It would be the heart energy as it extends from the etheric to the astral to the mental and yet more. It would be the whole of our energies that focus and cause our existence on the physical plane. The heart energies themselves are merely the epicenter and anchor of our life energy. Overall then the script is talking about our whole focus impressed by the heart.

We are told that at this stage “the heart no longer beats in tune with low desire.”

Obviously, it is the case then that in all but a few among humanity the heart does beat in tune with low desire. What does this mean and how is the beat and the rhythm different with low desire than with the one in harmony with spirit? Where does this beat of low desire originate?

The spiritual heart center can focus its attention upward to the higher heart center in the head or downward to the solar plexus. In the vast majority the focus is downward. Many looked upon as being spiritual leaders have more focus downward than upward.

Everything that is living has a rhythm or beat or oscillation. Conversely, the solar plexus has a beat and rhythm different than the heart center. When the heart energies are focused downward the rhythm of the heart then adjusts to its reflection rather than to its true reality and lower desire pulls it in its direction.

What is it about these lower desires that captivates humanity so? Shouldn’t these lower desires be so obvious that all sincere seekers should see through them and transcend them?

What many seekers do not realize is that the lower desires do not seem so low to the vast majority. While it is true that negative feelings are associated with the lower desires, so are numerous positive ones and herein lies the problem. The seeker generally gives the positive feelings of the lower nature priority and even associates them with the higher and is not willing to sacrifice them until many milestones have been passed.

The solar plexus has ten energy petals and each can manifest in a duality as follows:

  1. Romantic and Selfish Love/Hate
  2. Trained Conscience/Guilt
  3. Self-Esteem/Ego-Pride
  4. Happiness/Sorrow
  5. Friendship/Vengeance
  6. Desire/Repulsion
  7. Determination/Acquiescence
  8. Passion/Apathy
  9. Aspiration/Submission
  10. Sympathy/Loathing

Isn’t it a good thing that we hold on to the love of our lives, our friends, our passions and those things that make us happy in this world?

In most cases this is fine until any of these positive or negative feelings come in conflict with the path the disciple must tread.

If the disciple must choose between romantic love or the Path, then he must choose the Path, even if he loses the love of his life.

If the disciple finds that following the will of the Higher Self turns his friends and family against him then he or she must be prepared to lose them for this life.

If the disciple finds that the higher will requires him to sacrifice all that seems to bring him happiness then he must be prepared for that and willing to go a new direction.

If the disciple is willing to let all that seems praiseworthy slip through his fingers in order to focus on the higher in order to tread the Path then the turning round is caused and the heart no longer beats in tune with low desire.

No longer does he waste his “love upon the things that group and hide the Real.”

“Things that group” is an interesting phrase and apparently such things are a problem because they hide the real. Thus it is important to understand what they are.

Things that group are those that cause separation and it is important to remember that separateness is the only sin, says DK.

How are “things that group” associated with separateness?

It is not so much that grouping is a problem – as even Jesus had his group of disciples and the Masters have their groups of ashrams. The problem that hides the real is a grouping that creates an air of superiority. This type of identification with a group makes the person feel special and separate from and better, or more enlightened his brethren.

This attitude can manifest in a legion of ways such as a feeling of superiority or smugness because he associates himself with

(1) A certain religion or belief system

(2) A certain political party or ideology

(3) A club whose members seem elite.

(4) A certain income level

(5) A certain neighborhood

(6) A certain class, sex or race.

(7) It can even be a disadvantaged group such as the handicapped, the poor or people with a certain illness.

There is nothing wrong with participating in various groups. This is not where the problem lies. The problem comes from an attachment to the group and a feeling of being separate from one’s brothers and sisters who are not in the group.

It is our internal self that groups and creates a feeling of separateness that hides the real. This attitude must be negated and the disciple needs to see us all as souls being in the same boat together seeking our way home.

The mantra of unification says it well:

“The sons of men are one and I am one with

them. … Let inner union demonstrate and outer cleavages be gone.”

Part 3

Love and Desire

The text continues:

It beats with rhythm new; it pours its love upon the Real, and Maya fades away. Kama and heart are close allied; love and desire form one whole – one seen at night, the other in the light of day….

The downward focused eyes shift upwards rather than downwards and the seeker adjusts to a new rhythm. The old rhythm had much that was discordant. Many notes were either out of place or out of tune and this caused vision to be obscured and caused the seeker to come to many wrong conclusions.

By focusing upward and adjusting to the new harmony and rhythm love is seen in a new light and higher energies of spiritual love are released and is poured upon the Real, and Maya fades away.”

What is the real? It is pure truth not distorted by illusion or warped by the pull of matter and lower desire.

The disciple now looks for truth wherever it may be whether it is among the righteous or the wicked, the conservatives or the liberals, the rich and the poor, the famous and not so famous, the past and the present etc. Most important is that he looks in the direction of spirit and sees what is real there and brings the true realities down to earth. He links heaven and earth.

Next it says:

Kama and heart are close allied; love and desire form one whole.

“Kama” is merely another word for desire. Saying desire and heart and desire and love are two similar statements.

It is interesting that desire is often portrayed as a great evil that must be totally negated by many spiritual teachers, past and present. Here, however, it is placed in a positive light. We know for sure that heart and love are good things yet it says heart and desire are close allied and love and desire form one whole.

Haven’t we been told that we are supposed to kill out desire, put it behind us and only then will we move onward toward eternal bliss?

So what is the deal in linking desire with heart and love after the disciple has his feet solidly on the path?

What the seeker needs to realize is that it is not desire that is bad, as all lives in the universe have desire – even the One Great Life we call God. Why does this universe even exist? Because God desired it to be. We are lucky God had such a desire or we wouldn’t be here.

It should not be the goal to negate desire, but to master it and not let the lower grosser desires dominate over the higher and spiritual ones. What needs to be eliminated is not desire as a whole but wrong desire and too much attention on desires that are not of eternal importance. Each seeker needs to take inventory of his desires and arrange them in their true order of importance with the desire to return to spirit as being the number one as far as the end game goes.

It is interesting that an advanced soul has stronger desires overall than the average person. All ten of his energy/desire petals are unfolded in his solar plexus center while another may only have five or six completely active. The advanced soul thus has more energy in circulation that he has to handle. The difference is that he has mastered the energies and the less advanced soul has not. The proven disciple puts all desire in their right places and order.

The higher can fulfill the lower, but the lower cannot fulfill itself. Therefore when the higher energies and will control the lower desires there is peace because the lower and higher nature are both fulfilled.

How is it that love and desire are linked and form a whole? The answer is that the two form a duality and are interdependent wherever creation is manifest. Just like you cannot have one hand clapping you cannot manifest love without desire. The pilgrim merely must make sure it is accompanied by the correct selection of desire.

This paragraph ends with this curious statement:

“one seen at night, the other in the light of day….”

The question now becomes this: Which one is seen at night and which in the light of day? The natural inclination is to associate desire with the night and love with the light of day. After all, during the dark night of the soul lower desire dominates. On the other hand, what appears to be the obvious interpretation may not be correct.

Is the truth behind our desire nature and the order in which it must be arranged seen at night?

No. When the seeker is struggling to get to the light his desire nature is not seen clearly and gets in the way blurring vision even more. The disciple must see in the light of day to see the correct effect of his desires so he can put them in their correct places and master them.

On the other hand, love does not need light to be seen or understood. Love shared during the darkest night is felt and understood as it enlivens the soul. As the disciple transverses the valley of the shadow of death in the blackest pitch, a hand extending love is seen with overwhelming joy that could not be experienced in the light of day.

Part 4

The Revelation

In part three we ended with:

Kama and heart are close allied; love and desire form one whole – one seen at night, the other in the light of day….

Then the text continues:

. . . . . . .

“When fire and love and mind submit themselves, sounding the three-fold word, there comes response.

It is easy to overlook something of significance here. The line ending in “the light of day ends with a series of dots. This indicates that words are missing.

Then between the paragraphs we have a separating series of dots. This indicates substantial text is missing.

What do you suppose is missing and why was it left out?

To understand we need to look at an overview of the entire text. In as few words as possible the Old Commentary is telling us about the process of overcoming death.

The prime ingredient in this process is what is called the “turning round.” The seeker turns his attention from the lower self to the Higher Self. The entity goes through many stages in completing this process. First he acquires an intellectual interest in it. Then he starts acting on a few of the spiritual impulses. Then as he slowly acquires trust in them he acts on more of them until at long last the full turning round is caused and becomes a full fledged disciple, looking upon the real and maya fades away.

Looking upon and seeing the real is an important step but now in the next the disciple goes much further and that is a total submission to the spiritual reality that he has seen.

The journey between seeing the real and then totally incorporating it is extremely difficult and may take significant time to accomplish.

The text leaves out the words that tell us about the in between stage. Most probably it contained information reserved for initiates near this stage on the path.

The script leaves the stage of merely seeing, skips over a phase and focuses on the stage of total submission where, “ fire and love and mind submit themselves, sounding the three-fold word.”

Notice at this stage there is no duality is mentioned. There is no desire and love, but only love. There is no mention of the anything physical, but only fire. There is no lower and higher mind, but only mind. There is no mention of anything to do with form.

At this stage the essence of who the disciple is, that which composes his living self submits itself to pure Spirit, the monad, the Father in Heaven.

“Not my will, but thine be done” is the keynote.

This stage has nothing to do with submitting the desires of the lower nature. That has already been accomplished. Now the disciple must submit all the qualities of the soul nature to the still higher will of pure Spirit. He commits himself to use all his spiritual attributes in the service of the Great Plan while actually knowing what his part of the Plan is to be, while those farther back on the path want to be a part of the Plan but because of illusion often submit themselves to ideas that run counter to it.

But here’s the trick for this advanced disciple.

He must submit himself while “sounding the three-fold word.”

At the earlier stage a three-fold word issued from the triple form. This was an effect caused by raising his sight from the lower to the higher and following the highest he knew.

Now he must walk and chew gum at the same time. He must keep his focus on the higher, in a state of submission, while sounding the three-fold word.

Sounding the word at this stage is somewhat different as well and is more difficult than before. His three bodies must not only vibrate in harmony with spirit, but to complete the sounding of the word he must complete his revealed portion of the work that will advance the Divine Will.

This is a major task in the attaining of the fifth initiation, which is called The Initiation of Revelation. The disciple receives a revelation, or three-fold word, revealing to him a portion of divine will which he is to accomplish on three levels. When the work is then sufficiently initiated in mental, emotional and physical levels he has at that point sounded the Word.

After the word has been set in motion and becomes a living essence it is written:

“there comes response.”

The culmination of eons of effort has now arrived. The disciple here goes way beyond being soul infused to being truly one with the Monad, pure Spirit, God, the Father in Heaven, a link to the Source, the One Great Life.

This link, however, is not a one-way connection but two. The disciple is in the Divine Presence and as he approaches a great point of tension prepares to receive an astonishing gift.

Part 5

Overcoming Death

Finally we approach the climax of these great words:

“The One enunciates a word which drowns the triple sound. God speaks.”

The disciple thought he has heard the voice of God numerous times in his long journey. He has heard God speak through the still small voice, through inspiration, through the soul, through pure spirit, through dreams and maybe through visitation of God’s messengers.

This time, however is much different. God speaks in a fullness that few have imagined possible. The speech is described as “a word.” It is just one word that “drowns the triple sound” of fire and love and mind.

So, what word is it the disciple hears, or is it a word as we know it and is it heard in the normal sense? How does it drown fire and love and mind?

A hint may be available from DK’s description of the writing in the Old Commentary from whence the text was taken:

The words “the One enunciates the word which drowns the triple sound” are depicted by a shaft of light ending in a symbolic word in gold superimposed over three symbols in black, rose and green.

Treatise on White Magic, Page 76

When one reads DK’s translation he may get the impression that by drowning the threefold word that they may no longer exist, but this is not what happens. The Word is symbolized by golden light superimposed over the three words. The three words still exist, but are so overshadowed in this instant by this golden word that all that is now realized by the disciple is this one word.

The disciple finally has the prayer of the Gayatri answered:

Unveil to us the face of the true Spiritual Sun

Hidden by a disc of golden Light.

A word is sound and sound is vibration. Vibration is composed of wavelengths. A true word can be made of fine wavelengths such as light and sound or large ones such as repeated human activity or various cycles.

In this case the golden Word is much more than sound as we know it. When experiencing this Word the disciple’s whole being, body, heart and mind, are so saturated with the spiritual essence of his Source that nothing else seems to exist but this wonderful synthetic oneness of life of which he is now partaking.

As the disciple experiences this blending we are told, “A quivering and a shaking in the form responds.”

The form that responds includes the physical/etheric, the emotional or feeling nature and the mind. That which is particularly affected though is the physical/etheric. The physical, which is furthest from Spirit, is now merged with Spirit. Because the distance between the physical and Spirit is much greater than heart and Spirit or mind and Spirit, the impact of the drowning life energy seems greater there. The intensity will be so intense that the disciple will wonder if his body will just evaporate and be no more.

After the disciple adjusts to the experience he discovers that all parts of his being are still intact, including his physical body. Instead of it just going up in flames he finds, “The new stands forth, a man remade; the form rebuilt; the house prepared.”

To his amazement he finds that all that makes up his form has been rebuilt and he is rejuvenated. His body returns to the vitality of his youth and he is truly born again, though there may not be much change in his physical appearance. His life is now extended for at least another lifetime without tasting death. Then at the end of his new life cycle, if he continues to correctly sound the threefold word, he can repeat the blending and rejuvenation. He is thus a master of life and death and can extend his field of earth service as long as it serves a purpose.

Next it is written:

“The fires unite, and great the light that shines:”

This great light could extend to the physical, as demonstrated by the glowing Christ on the Mount of Transfiguration, but it is mainly referring to the light in the etheric, heart and mind. The one great golden light, which is the One Word, gathers the lesser lights together as one and the disciple is able to see with a much higher angle of vision than before. The great light of understanding is the important gift here.

The Old Commentary ends with these words:

“the three merge with the One and through the blaze a four-fold fire is seen.”

After the merging these appear to be just one fire but if the disciple looks through, or within the blaze he sees that what seems to be one fire is really four fires. The fire of pure Spirit, of mind, heart and the physical fire by friction.

The disciple thus becomes a master and knows of a surety the truth of the words of Jesus:

Verily, verily, I say unto you, If a man keep my saying, he shall never see death. John 8:51

“And whosoever liveth and believeth in me shall never die.” John 11:26

This achievement requires much more than some statement of belief. It requires the disciple to become the Path, the Word and manifest the life of God on the earth through incorporating the words of the outer and the inner Christ.

The Lives of the Seven Chakras

This entry is part 14 of 73 in the series 2015

Contacting Lesser Lives

Have you ever had a conversation or read a book or article and just have something strike you in such a way that produced an a-hah moment? I think we all have had this experience at one time or another.

I had the privilege of creating such a moment for Bryan Smith in a conversation we had some time ago. I made an off the cuff comment about the influence of the lesser lives in our centers and their influence upon us and the comment turned on a light in his head.

He then asked me if I had ever taught this concept in the Keys or at a gathering. I told him that I had often taught that we were composed of many lesser lives, but did not recall teaching it this way.

Well, the other day in an email he reminded me that I should elaborate more on this topic so here goes.

Many esoteric, metaphysical and new age teachings tell us that life is much more pervasive than accepted by orthodoxy. The common teaching is that all things are alive, from atoms to molecules, to cells in our body and clear up to the earth itself, the sun and the entire universe. All the various parts of the human body are more than just parts that make up a life, but are also individual lives in their own right. In other words, an individual cell in your body has its own consciousness and sphere of influence and ring-pass-not, but merely on a different level than our own.

These lesser lives combine to create the greater life which is the body as a whole.

Expanding on this concept produces the foundation of the teaching of the Molecular Relationship. It is known that humans form groups that seem to have a life of their own, but the Molecular Relationship takes this a step further and tells of scientific groupings and linkings to higher lives that can create greater conscious life forms than humanity has seen before.

That is all well and good, but what caught Bryan’s attention was when I told him that all of us can actually feel some of these lesser lives and communicate with them and direct them if we pay attention. In fact controlling these lesser lives is a key that must be understood and mastered on the path to liberation.

“So where are these lesser lives and how do we feel them?” inquires the seeker. “I realize my cells and organs are alive, but I do not recall receiving or giving communication with any of them.”

To this I respond that you have interplay with lesser lives within you all the time and you communicate with them, but you just did not realize what you were doing.

To this the seeker would want to know how this could be. Here is the answer.

There are many lives within us besides our cells, organs and various physical body parts. The most powerful lives are those that compose the seven centers. Just like you are a life composed of lesser lives, even so, are each of your centers a life composed of lesser lives and are a part of the greater life which is you. Because the centers are the highest lives that are a part of you they are also the easiest to contact and communicate with.

And the strange thing is that humans communicate with them all the time and do not realize it.

How so?

Because it seems that the lesser lives are just us, not something alive in their own right.

“So, where can I find one of these lesser lives and communicate with it?” one asks.

It is quite easy. Just wait for the next time someone irritates you and you feel angry as the dickens

When this happens, just still yourself and step aside from your physical existence for a moment and become the observer. See yourself as being outside of your body just watching what is going on. What do you see?

What you see and sense is a powerful life form dwelling in the solar plexus area that wants to take control of the body and direct it toward destructive ends for its own satisfaction.

This life is not you, but is sharing the body with you and tries to convince you that you and it are the same life and you are under its control.

If you step aside and see this angry life as separate as your dog or an associate then it will indeed dawn on you that the source of this anger is a life that is not you. You will realize that it is not technically correct to say, “I am angry.” Instead, it would be more correct to say something like, “Those darned little deva lives in me are having a fit and want me to express the anger they feel.”

It would also be correct to say, “I feel anger.”

The essence which is you is not angry, but because you have incarnated into the body with these lives capable of creating anger and other feelings, you have the ability to feel what they try to communicate.

When you die and return to your soul you leave many of these lesser lives behind and are not so influenced by them. But when incarnated in the physical we do feel what they feel and for many lifetimes we are deceived into thinking that what they tell us to feel is who we are.

It is not who we are. This is the great revelation that leads to liberation.

The first time the seeker steps aside and tunes into these lesser lives expressing anger, jealousy, irritation, romantic love, strong desire or other emotions connected with the solar plexus he or she will come to some very insightful conclusions.

The easiest emotion expressed by a lesser life for the individual to tune into is anger. This is the easiest feeling to see that it has a life of its own. Many feel anger and sense that this is not the real individual. “This does not seem like the real me, it is not who I want to be, but I feel like kicking the door down,” he may think.

When the seeker then realizes that the anger is coming from a separate life then it becomes much easier for him to take control. It is much easier to drive the car where you want to go when the real you is driving instead of someone else.

If you identify with the anger then someone else is driving your life. But if you place the real you in charge then you become the driver.

And what happens when you take charge of the lesser lives wanting to express anger?

You control them. Just tell them to quiet down, be patient and behave themselves.

Here is another secret about these lesser lives. They evolve differently than we do. We evolve by making conscious decisions and taking charge of our lives. The lesser deva lives go backwards and become out of control when they are given total freedom. Unlike us they evolve by being controlled.

Thus by taking charge of your lower emotions and controlling them you are not only furthering your evolution, but also moving the evolution of the lesser lives forward.

Now keep in mind that control is different than suppression or denial. To suppress is to tell the lesser lives they do not count and this denies their right to feel. If you do this they will rebel and attack the whole body and often create disease.

The seeker must recognize the lesser lives and direct them to their right place by good old fashion self control.

All the lesser lives we have covered belong to the solar plexus but there are six other major centers. Any idea what are the characteristics of some of the lives in the other centers and how to communicate with them?

 

The Lives in the First Two Centers

In the last post we discussed the influence of the lesser lives through the solar plexus center demonstrating as the lower emotions calling for our attention.

So what about the other centers?

Another center that is often of equal or greater force in getting our attention is the sacral center. This is the center governing sexual energy.

These lives are particularly powerful in young people who have not settled in some type of routine of self control and direction. If reasonable self control is not established the main deva life with its lesser components will dominate the person until his vital energy is exhausted.

The lesser lives of this center are quite easy to recognize. The only reason people do not is that they see the sexual energy as being a part of themselves rather than individual lives within the body.

Now think of a time that a very attractive person crossed your path. If you are normal you felt a strong pull, even if you are committed to someone else. Perhaps a part of you felt like grabbing that person and ravishing him or her on the spot, but of course, you controlled yourself.

Perhaps a part of you felt like throwing your current relationship to the wind and starting something fresh and adventurous.

Fortunately, most people do not follow all the desires expressed by those crazy lives in sacral center. Most put them under some form of control, though many yield in moments of weakness, usually to their regret.

When a provocative sexual situation occurs the observer can certainly at that point register that there are lesser lives in the body with a mind of their own and these lives need to be controlled and directed into a harmless outlet. When the person is highly aroused sexually he or she can definitely feel the effect of these lives which is beyond the mere thought process.

The ultimate testimony to the presence of life in the sacral center is the result of its creative activity which is the birth of a new and independent human life – a baby.

The first center in the lower regions is at the base of the spine. This is the initiating center from whence come the flow of energy that vitalizes or feeds the other centers and hence the entire body.

Now the seeker may comment that he can surely feel the influence of lives from the solar plexus and the sacral, but can’t think of any communication that would be coming from the base chakra. What in the world would that be?

The reason the sensing of the life there is not as obvious is that it is not as excitable as the lives tuned in to the emotions and sexual desire. Even so, all of us feel the life presence there every day, but again the reality passes over our heads.

Tuning into the life in the base center is quite simple. Just ask yourself these questions?

How am I feeling today on a physical level? What is my energy level? Do I feel tired or am I alert and ready to tackle my work?

Then after you ask yourself these questions tune into the life that activates and energizes your physical body?

This is the life at the base chakra. If you feel tired all the time then you are doing something to hinder its vitality. If you feel good energy and a sense of physical well being then you are allowing it to express its life force.

When someone asks you, “How are you, today?” you will generally say fine and see this totally in reference to your life. But the real answer you give (speaking physically) concerns the condition of the lives at the base of the spine.

If the seeker will quiet himself down, concentrate and tune in to his life energy he will become aware of this foundation life. Focus on the energy source for your body and whether or not it is adequate in the present. If it is not adequate then ask it what it needs in order to circulate more energy throughout the body.

Now let us focus on the throat and heart centers. What will communication or contact with them reveal?

 

Questions on Lesser Lives

A reader quotes me as follows:

“What you see and sense is a powerful life form dwelling in the solar plexus area that wants to take control of the body and direct it toward destructive ends for its own satisfaction.”

And then asks:

Why would this powerful life form want to direct out body toward destructive ends for its own satisfaction?

JJ

These lives are on a different course than whole human lives. They evolve by being controlled. When intelligently controlled, they can be directed toward constructive ends. When not controlled they merely take the line of least resistance which leads to chaos.

Reader

Does it get some type of pleasure from this? And why would it?

JJ

Emotionally based lives get pleasure from expressing themselves whether it be constructive or destructive. They do not have much discernment.

Have you ever reacted emotionally and then minutes later asked yourself, “Why did I do or say that?” What happened is you turned your body over to the life of the solar plexus which just wants to express itself, good or bad.

Reader

If it did this, then it would have no body?

JJ

There is a lot of destructive emotional things said and done that do not involve injuring the body. Normally the feeling nature seeks to preserve the life of the body.

Reader

Where did this life form that is so destructive come from?

JJ

All lives are composites of lesser lives. The solar plexus has ten petals dominated by ten lesser lives with a more significant one in the center of the lotus.

From the beginning of the universe the intelligence of God worked through lesser lives, gathering them together to create greater lives. All organized lives came from the creative mind of God.

Reader

Are these life forms part of the Lunar Lords from the Moon chain?

JJ

Many lesser lives here were partially developed in past systems.

Reader

So why are we housing a life form that is so destructive? Is that part of our karma, or part of our own lower nature from a past universe?

JJ

It has little to do with negative karma. All life, including man goes through a destructive and uncontrolled period until he begins to fulfill the purpose of his creation and creates or encounters some type of control or direction that moves it toward a constructive, joyful end.

When lives of the solar plexus are put under constructive control they then reflect the energies of the soul and add to the joy of being human.

Reader

Is this lifeform the Dweller also, or is this life form, like the Dweller wherein it is a collective of all our negative thoughts, since the beginning of time and space?

JJ

No. Your dweller is a thoughtform composed of emotional and mental matter apart from the centers. It may use fear and negative emotion connected with the lower centers, but it is distinct from them.

 

The Lives of the Throat and Heart

Now we move to the throat and heart centers to see what communication or contact with them reveal.

The lives composing the sacral and solar plexus centers are under an impulse to control the personality, but need to be controlled by the indwelling ego for the sake of their own advancement as well as the person incarnated.

As we advance upward to the throat, the heart and the head, the lives are of a higher order. These higher devas respond to the control from the soul rather than the personality.

The throat is at the midway point between the frequencies of heaven and earth so to speak. It helps to understand the throat center to realize that the human kingdom represents the throat center for the planetary life of earth.

The human kingdom is composed of the very spiritual and the very materialistic. A part of this center dwells in soul consciousness, a part touching upon it and a large part is stuck in a very materialistic thinking.

The throat center stimulates creative energies and in the human kingdom we see very inspiring creative endeavors in art, music, architecture and innovations of all kinds. On the positive side many of these help humanity. On the negative side we are also creative developments used for war, destruction and perversion.

Even so, the lives in the throat center can be responsive to personality desire or to the will of the soul. Which one they tune into will be determined by the person in charge. If the pilgrim focuses on lower desire then his creative energies, as well as his speech, will reflect this. If he focuses on the spirit and soul then the creative energies will turn their attention to reflecting the higher life and the manifestation of spiritual things.

To tune into the lives in the throat center pay attention to the various impulses that come to you to speak, to write or to create. If you find yourself speaking something you regret, without thinking, then the lower lives there have taken over and bypassed the control that you should be exercising.

If you are in charge of words that come from your pen or mouth and you feel good about them then the chances are some of the light of the soul has been received by the throat center.

Christ and his Hierarchy, the Brotherhood of Light, represent the heart center of the planet. So just as the life of a master is of a higher order than the life of an average human, even so are the heart energies more in line with soul and spirit than are the lives below the heart. The lives in the heart are thus controlled by the Higher Self and not the lower. To access the real energies of the heart the seeker must seek to make his will harmonize with his Higher Self.

At first this just happens now and then and sometimes by accident. You may make a decision in line with the Higher Self and not even be aware of the unity. But then when you move on a decision in alignment with higher will you will experience sensations from the heart petals responding.

The main life of the heart center is composed of twelve lesser lives called petals. Six represent the wisdom aspect and six tune into spiritual love.

You feel the wisdom lives when you come to a new realization, perceive a new truth that isn’t obvious to the lower personality or have an Ah-ha moment.

You feel the lives reflecting spiritual love when you share soul energy with other humans. This often comes as a result of service. Bringing joy to or helping a young child is one of the easiest ways to stimulate and feel this spiritual love of the soul. A child hasn’t been separated from his soul for very long and thus tends to guide us toward spiritual love with greater ease than many adults.

The spiritual love of her heart feels quite different than the desire love of the solar plexus – which includes most romantic love.

The lower love responds because of what the other person does for us. For instance, most people fall in love because of what the other person offers him or her.

The love from the heart center responds because of what you do for a brother, sister, or child. You feel the lower love when you are served and the higher when you serve with the aim of carrying out the higher will of the soul or spirit.

Most of us have felt the higher love a number of times in our lives. It doesn’t come often enough but it does come to those with a sincere heart.

If you think back to a time when you felt spiritual love or a flash of enlightenment you can sense that you were indeed feeling a life within yourself reflecting spiritual energy under the control of your soul, a master on its own plane.

The end goal is to be one with our Higher Selves so we can be a participant in releasing the higher energies of the throat, the heart and the head.

The final two main centers are the center between the eyebrows and the crown chakra. Contemplate on the lives dwelling there and what contact would be like until I write again.

Only the hands that have let slip all within the three worlds are free to carry the ultimate blessing to struggling humanity.

Treatise on White Magic, Page 265

 

The Lives in the Head

Now let us look at the two highest centers which are the center between the eyebrows – the ajna, sometimes called the third eye, and the crown center – also called the sahasrara chakra, or the thousand petalled lotus.

The center between the eyebrows consists of two major petals. One petal is rose red and yellow and the other blue and purple. Each of these major petals consists of 48 lesser petals each making a total of 96 petals composing this center. It takes many lifetimes to unfold all of these lives but when they are the powers of heaven are manifest on earth through a human entity.

Just as the physical eyes see and bring in data for the brain to process, even so does the ajna center see, but on a higher level. How much the seeker sees depends on his point of evolution and how many lesser lives of the center are activated and cooperating.

So how much can the disciple see through the ajna center? Seeing is virtually unlimited as a fully opened center is linked to the originating monad. He or she can penetrate into the unseen worlds of form as well as the formless. He can see into the hearts and minds of men and sense the heart and will of God and beings unseen by common man.

As the disciple opens this center he begins to penetrate the realm where ideas are born and principles understood. He realizes he must do more than memorize facts and data, but must understand the how and why of things. This third eye receives principles and reflects them to the heart center which processes them with added wisdom and understanding.

So, what will the seeker feel when he senses the lives of this center? These lives dance and play upon the inner light within the head. Close your eyes and focus in the forehead until you see or sense living light in motion. Feel them transmitting that light to your whole being.

You’ve sensed them before, but you didn’t realize they were lives in their own right laboring to bring heaven down to earth for you. Recognize their labors and the gifts of the spirit will multiply and manifest.

The highest center in the body is the crown at the top of the head. Even though it is called the thousand petalled lotus the actual number is a little short of this. It consists of twelve larger outer petals, white and gold in color, that interplay with the twelve golden petals of the heart center. This is sometimes called the “heart center in the head.” Within the circle of these twelve petals are 960 lesser petals.

This center is linked to the monad and this link is slowly realized by the seeker, after many lifetimes of struggle, when many of the petals are activated.

This center reflects the will of God and assists in manifesting it on the earth. Each of the 960 lesser petals represents some divine purpose manifested in some life, past or future. The twelve major petals represent a greater embrace of Divine Will where the seeker becomes a disciple and performs a correspondence to the Twelve Labors of Hercules in twelve or more lifetimes or cycles.

Have you ever sensed that you have a purpose that you are supposed to fill in this life? All of us have this sense whether we acknowledge it or not. This sense is reflected to you from one or more of the lives in the head center.

Be still for a few minutes and contemplate your purpose and the value of your life. That sense of value and mission is reflected to you by an inner life doing his darndest to get through your thick skull. If you are like the rest of us these dedicated lives have their work cut out for them.

As the disciple advances along the path his sense of higher will increases so he can see beyond the purpose of his own life to Divine Will as it is designed to work out in groups, nations, the human race, the entire planet and more. There is always more.

Now we have covered the seven major centers it would be beneficial for the seeker to practice now and then in quiet moments in sensing the lives from the base of the spine to the top of the head and then synthesize them in the inner consciousness and see them and himself as one greater life working in cooperation.

Give thanks to the lives within and the God they serve as you cheerfully continue on your journey.

If you can’t figure out your purpose, figure out your passion. For your passion will lead you right into your purpose.

The Left, the Right and DK, Conclusion

This entry is part 11 of 73 in the series 2015

Conclusion

There are other points that could be made illustrating how DK leans more right than left. His teachings are certainly a different flavor than either the current right or left is custom to hearing, but overall are more in harmony with the Right. A good DK student will find in his writings teachings that support:

(1) A belief in God

(2) A belief in an afterlife

(3) Good or evil works will reap a just reward after death

(4) There are angels and spiritual beings in other realms.

(5) He teaches against promiscuity

(6) Christ was a real historical person.

(7) Christ will come again.

(8) He believes in the power of prayer

(9) He stresses rugged individualism and personal responsibility and we are the ones who created whatever situation in which we find ourselves.

(10) He stresses the importance of law and justice in order to insure the preservation as well as the advance of civilization. He tells us that the seventh Ray is coming into power and greater emphasis will be placed on this.

The Right overall are bigger supporters of law and order than the Left. One of many examples of this is border control. We have plenty of laws that the Left helped pass to secure the border but now that it is not politically expedient they do not want to enforce them. The Right tends to support enforcing laws even when they disagree with them. This latter attitude is necessary to insure a secure civilization.

Of course, there are exceptions to every rule and there may be a time and place to break the law for the greater good but the Left does not support many laws that are for the greater good and necessary for a secure state.

If we have bad laws all efforts should be made to change them rather than break them for personal or dogmatic reasons.

About the only way that DK sounds more to the Left than the Right are found in his promotion of the idea of sharing wealth with some socialist sounding teachings.

On the other hand, nowhere des he say that social programs should be forced upon the majority by a minority. He presents a future ideal that both sides can agree with if accomplished through the Principle of Freedom.

And indeed freedom is one of his core teachings as well as one of mine.

Therefore, through the Forces of Light, liberation into freedom will come and it will mean the freedom of all mankind.

The Left, the Right and DK, Part 10

This entry is part 10 of 73 in the series 2015

Discrimination

Thanks to the demonization of the Left, the word “discrimination” has become such a forbidden word that if one discriminates at all on most anything he is deemed to be in league with the devil himself.

Again we see a difference of approach as far as the use of discrimination goes with the Left and the Right.

The Left has nothing good to say about using our natural abilities to discriminate, especially as far as people are concerned. They feel we just should not discriminate at all, period, end of story.

They have carried this so far that it becomes difficult for law enforcement to profile criminals or possible terrorists. If some guy robs a bank the media is often afraid to mention his race or even name if it belongs to a minority.

Other developments are the doing away with a single valedictorian in schools, dumbing down the grading system, tests, and discipline – all in the name of too much discrimination.

The Left has used this black and white approach to discrimination to water down critical thought and analysis in ways too numerous to cover here.

The Right has a different approach. They agree with the majority of the people that we should not use unjust discrimination that would interfere with basic civil rights but they support discrimination where it makes sense.

Here is one example. After the attack on 9/11 it became necessary to screen boarding passengers more carefully. Many on the Right wanted to use a little discrimination and profile passengers, like Israel does with great success, so more attention could be placed on those who were statistically more likely to be a problem. They thought it was silly to single out little old ladies from Pasadena with as much intensity as a non citizen from Saudi Arabia from whence came those who took down the Twin Towers.

Most on the Right think it is advantageous to give all possible details on wanted criminals including race, sex, height, weight, accent – anything that helps to identify the guy.

Most on the Right reject the idea of quota systems that takes away our ability to wisely discriminate. They want to chose their friends based on who they like, they want businesses to hire people based on their abilities, not quotas, and students should be able to get into schools based on their achievements.

DK agrees with the Right in that not all discrimination is bad, but goes even further and says it is an essential characteristic that must be mastered and used by disciples.

The positive use of discrimination was a huge theme in his writings that was repeated and emphasized over and over. Here are just a few quotes from DK of the many that could be given:

Every expenditure of force on the part of a Master or Teacher is subjected to wise foresight and discrimination. Just as we do not put university professors to teach the beginners, so the Masters Themselves work not individually with men until they have attained a certain stage of evolution and are ready to profit by Their instruction.

***

Watch yourselves and your daily life with discrimination, so that you learn to distinguish between glamour, illusion and maya.

Many on the Left say that those who discriminate in any way are haters, but DK says:

Hate ever lacks discrimination. The great Law of Spiritual Retribution requires that justice be meted out, but hatred will close the eyes of justice.

***

A man has been taught that he evolves and becomes aware first by means of the five senses, and later through the development of the faculty of discrimination, coupled with dispassion. Here in the West we have primarily emphasised the five senses, and have not taught that discrimination which is so essential.

***

Go forward with discrimination where your unfoldment is concerned, and with love and understanding where your group is concerned.

***

You must learn discrimination and understanding and right choice through experiment, through failure and through success.

***

You can also see why for centuries the emphasis of the Teachers of the Ageless Wisdom has been upon the necessity for discrimination, particularly where the probationary disciple is concerned.

***

Our first aim should surely be self-realisation through the practice of discrimination; we must learn to think clearly for ourselves, to formulate our own thoughts and to manipulate our own mental processes; we must learn to know what we think and why we think it, to find out the meaning of group consciousness through the study of the law of sacrifice. Not only must we find ourselves through the primary childhood stage of selfishness (and surely that should lie behind us), not only should we learn to distinguish between the real and the unreal, through the practice of discrimination, but we should endeavour to pass on from that to something very much better.

DK was definitely against a black and white rejection of the use and application of our powers of discrimination. One could say that he taught the art of using the discriminating mind to discriminate effectively in a beneficial, and not harmful manner. Wise discrimination leads to the fulfillment of Martin Luther Kings dream where he said:

I have a dream that my four little children will one day live in a nation where they will not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character.

The Left, the Right and DK, Part 9

This entry is part 9 of 73 in the series 2015

The Preservation of Species

Both the political left and right as a whole seek to preserve the various species of the planet. The difference between the two is that the Left is far more conservative in its approach than the Right. Many of them feel that draconian steps must be taken if there is any risk to a species and they must be preserved at all costs. They seek to keep life where it is now whether it be animal, insect, vegetable or Mother Earth itself.

The Right has a more liberal approach in that they want to take reasonable steps to not interfere with the health of various lives, but when it comes down to measures that that seem to create great problems for us humans they will side with the humans.

A prime example of this division is in the extreme measures to save the Delta Smelt in California at the expense of irrigating water for hundreds of thousands of acres of choice farmland in California. For years now the 700,000-acre Sacramento-San Joaquin River Delta has been turning into a dust bowl because an attempt to keep the water in place so the tiny smelt could survive.

The crazy thing is that all this sacrifice the farmers had to endure was for nothing as the smelt have been rapidly declining in numbers despite the extreme efforts of the Left to save them.

DK sides with the Right here and tells us that the appearance and extinction of various species is an important part of evolution taking place on this planet.

He says:

One of the recognised facts in the realm of natural science has been the cyclic change in the fauna and flora of our planet. Animals, plentiful and familiar many thousands of years ago, are now extinct, and by means of their bones we endeavour to reconstruct their forms. Flowers and trees that once covered the surface of our planet have now entirely disappeared and only their fossilized remains are left to indicate to us a vegetation vastly different to that which we now enjoy. Man himself has changed so much that we find it difficult to recognise homo sapiens in the early primitive races of the far distant past.

Esoteric Psychology, Vol 1, Page 101

He explains that many species will naturally become extinct because of the influence of the incoming Seventh Ray.

The third effect of the coming in of this ray is one that may at first repel – it will cause a great destruction in the animal kingdom. During the next few hundred years many of the old animal forms will die out and become extinct. To supply the wants of man, through disease, and through causes latent in the animal kingdom itself, much destruction will be brought about. It must ever be borne in mind that a building force is likewise a destroying one, and new forms for the animal evolution are, at this time, one of the recognized needs. The immense slaughter in America is part of the working out of the plan. The inner life or fire which animates the animal groups, and which is the life expression of an Entity, will, under this seventh influence, blaze up and burn out the old, and permit the escape of the life, to newer and better forms.

Treatise on Cosmic Fire, Page 465

Note that he makes the statement that “new forms for the animal evolution are, at this time, one of the recognized needs.” To prepare for the new the old must go. What this tells us is that the Left’s black and white draconian measures to preserve all species at all costs are merely interfering with the evolution of the planet. We must learn to use some common sense. Of course we must not participate in senseless slaughter of species to the point of extinction, but neither should we interfere with nature and let her and common sense take its course.

Finally DK makes this interesting statement:

A portion of the animal kingdom will enter into a temporary obscuration, thus releasing energy for the use of the remaining percentage, and producing results such as are hinted at by the prophet of Israel when he speaks of “the wolf lying down with the lamb”; his comment “a little child shall lead them” is largely the esoteric enunciation of the fact that three fifths of the human family will stand upon the Path, ‘a little child’ being the name applied to probationers and disciples. In the vegetable and mineral kingdoms a corresponding demonstration will ensue, but of such a nature as to be too obscure for our comprehension.

Treatise on Cosmic Fire, Page 493

According to DK here an obscuration of a species has the benefit of “releasing energy” that can be used by the remaining members of that kingdom.

Animals are a part of a group soul and not individualized as are humans. This means that fewer numbers gives the group souls more power to work with the remaining lives and stimulate their evolution as well as bring about new species.

The Left often portrays humanity as a plague or virus on the earth doing nothing but damage. Again DK sides with the Right in that the destiny of humanity is to be a benevolent force.

In the vegetable kingdom, the effect (of humanity) will be the demonstration of increased beauty and diversity, and the evolution of new species with an objective impossible to explain to those not yet initiate. The production of nutritive forms which will serve the needs of the lesser devas and angels will be one of the results.

In the animal kingdom the effect will be the elimination of pain and suffering and a return to the ideal conditions of the Garden of Eden. When man functions as a soul, he heals; he stimulates and vitalizes; he transmits the spiritual forces of the universe, and all harmful emanations and all destructive forces find in the human kingdom a barrier. 

Treatise on White Magic, Page 99

The human kingdom has made mistakes, but we are learning as we go and our ultimate destiny is to be great benefactors for the kingdoms below us. May we hasten this day with the use of a little common sense.

The Left, the Right and DK, Part 8

This entry is part 8 of 73 in the series 2015

Abundance of Resources

There is an interesting division between the political left and right on their views on the availability and management of natural resources.

The Left sees the future availability of resources such as oil, natural gas, energy, trees, minerals, land, food, water, commodities and even manufactured items as very limited in supply. Because of this limitation we must conserve. It is ironical that in this area it is the Left which is extremely conservative, even though they are called liberals by the masses.

The political right has a different take. They do not merely consider resources available now and make the mistake in thinking that nothing will change. Instead, they believe that human ingenuity will figure out ways to create all the resources we need to provide for us in the future. All we have to do is give people the freedom they need to manifest them.

DK seems to agree with this idea as never once did he say that there would not be enough natural resources available for us in the future. The only problem he saw in this regard was that a lack of right human relations and a lack of goodwill would interfere with a distribution to those in need.

Concerning resources he said:

These are: first, the recognition that there is enough food, fuel, oil and minerals in the world to meet the need of the entire population.

Externalisation of the Hierarchy, Page 197

This is as true today as it was in 1940 when he made this statement. There are plenty of natural resources to take care of the whole world. We just have to have the freedom to go after them, produce them and then distribute them.

The Left creates a stumbling block in the manifestation of the abundance of these resources because many do everything in their power to prevent humanity from obtaining them. They attempt seal up new sources of oil production, natural gas, coal, atomic energy and even wind and solar in some cases. They push for these limitation even in poor countries that desperately need energy for survival.

Let us just look at one commodity, oil. Almost all the predictions about its future availability were wrong, really wrong. Here are some examples.

In 1885, the US Geological Survey announced that there was “little or no chance” of oil being discovered in California. In 1891, it said the same thing about Kansas and Texas.

“Petroleum has been used for less than 50 years, and it is estimated that the supply will last about 25 or 30 years longer. If production is curtailed and waste stopped it may last till the end of the century.”

July 19, 1909 Titusville Herald (Titusville, PA)

In 1939 the US Department of the Interior said that American oil supplies would last only another 13 years.

“M. King Hubbert of the Shell Development Co. predicted [one year ago] that peak oil production would be reached in the next 10 to 15 years and after that would gradually decline.”

March 9, 1957 Corpus Christi Times (Corpus Christi, TX)

The Limits to Growth (1972) – projected the world would run out of gold by 1981, mercury and silver by 1985, tin by 1987, zinc by 1990, petroleum by 1992, and copper, lead and natural gas by 1993.

“At any rate, U.S. oil supplies will last only 20 years. Foreign supplies will last 40 or 50 years, but are increasingly dependent upon world politics.”

May 1972 Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists

“As a nation, Americans have been reluctant to accept the prospect of physical shortages. We must recognize that world oil production will likely peak in the early 1990’s, and from that point on will be on a declining curve. By the early part of the 21st century, we must face the prospect of running out of oil and natural gas.”

1977 US Department of Energy

Each time some wrong, shortsighted prediction is made about some natural resource the Left assumes it is the gospel truth and builds its ideas for conservation around it.

The Right, on the other hand, factors in the truth of human ingenuity and creativity. They see us as problem solvers that can take charge of our destiny.

The thread of all DK’s writings agree with this approach. He sounds this positive note when speaking of atomic energy.

Man will eventually come to the realisation that in atomic energy, harnessed to his need, or in the inducing of increased radioactivity, lies for him the path to prosperity and riches.
