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.
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.
