The Left, the Right and DK, Part 5

This entry is part 5 of 73 in the series 2015

Belief in God and Intelligent Design

Back in the 1980s and earlier there was not much difference in the percentage of the political left and right who professed a belief in God and recognized some type of Divine Intelligence having a hand in creation.

Now all that has changed. The political left has taken a major swing to the spiritual left whereas the Right has held fairly steady. Pew polls show that in 1987 there was not much difference between the Republicans and Democrats in their belief in God, but by 2012 we approached a great divide that has probably become wider since. In 2012 92% of Republicans had some type of belief in God compared to only 77% of the Democrats.

Another Pew poll revealed that in 2012 73% of the atheists voted for the Democrats and only 18% voted Republican. About twice as many Democrats reject the idea that some type of higher intelligence had a hand in the creation of the universe.

I think the polls actually understate the belief gap. I have participated in a number of forums where politics is discussed and if I, or another there, just mention any type of acknowledgement of Divine Intelligence the attacks and belittlement from the political left spew forth without mercy. Rarely does anyone from the Left even mention a belief in God in any form. Many of those on the Left who do have some belief in God often seem too ashamed to publicly admit it. The only supporting posts made in harmony with me was from believers on the Right and the strange thing is that many of those believers have a lot different view of God than I do. Even so, just the mere acknowledgement of Higher Intelligence is a unifying guidepost leading to the direction of the Right hand path.

On this matter DK, as well as most any spiritual teacher, is much more in harmony with the political right than the Left. The acknowledgement of God, as well as all the hierarchies, representing higher spiritual intelligence in the realm of creation are at the core of all his writings. He definitely sides with the political right in accepting intelligent design.

The most famous words of DK, The Great Invocation acknowledges God as our source of “light” “love” and “Will.” One would think that Bailey students, especially would support the acknowledgment of Divine Intelligence.

Good and Evil

Speaking of good and evil often produces a very strong negative reaction from those on the political left, many new agers and even some Bailey students. Many new agers claim there is no such thing as good and evil and the political left simply doesn’t want any of their actions judged by anyone in those terms.

DK, on the other hand was a definite believer in good and evil. Again, in the Great invocation he utters the prayer, “And may it seal the door where evil dwells.”

The teaching of the Brotherhood of Light and the Dark Brotherhood are at the core of his writings. He did not hesitate to call evil by its name and strongly equated Hitler and the Nazis with evil. After the war he said:

The leader of the conflict against evil in high places is the Christ, the Head of the Hierarchy. What is the attitude of the Christ at this time?… He knows Himself to be the inner spiritual Commander of the Armies of the Lord. His is the responsibility of awakening the souls of men to their presented opportunity and to the need of bringing to an end this ancient conflict between the Lords of Evil and the Messengers of Light. His has been the problem of teaching humanity that, in order to demonstrate true love and to provide scope and opportunity for a civilisation in which love, brotherhood and right human relations are governing factors, those essential steps must be taken which will accomplish this….

The sword of discrimination is wielded by the initiates and the disciples of the world, and by its means the distinction between good and evil, with a consequent presentation of free choice between the two, has been laid before humanity, and the lines of demarcation have been made abundantly clear in this world war.

Externalization of the Hierarchy, Pages 433-434

By most any definition of the terms good and evil exists in the world. If this is not recognized then how can evil be replaced with good? One cannot defeat an enemy if he does not understand or recognize what the enemy is.
