The New Group

I have started a new Facebook group with a different slant than this or any other group I know of. It is called:

Quotes of Enlightenment and Ancient Wisdom (LINK)

This new group will focus on examining quotes from past writers of the Ancient wisdom and we invite you to check it out and join. Just click on the link below.

Here is a group description:

This group is about more than merely posting memes or short quotes and getting as many likes as possible. Instead, we will be looking at quotes that stimulate discussion. When placing a quote members are encouraged to say why they find it interesting or what they wish to discover from it. And, unlike most esoteric groups, we have no problem with a good argument developing as long as the participants remain civil. Light is often revealed through seeing both sides of a disagreement. Members should accept the value of the Fourth Ray of Harmony Through Conflict.

Here we place the most weight on quotes from the writings of Alice A. Bailey, amanuensis for Djwhal Khul (DK), but also respect any teacher of wisdom such as H. P. Blavatsky, Helena Roerich, Lucille Cedercrans, Geofry Hodson, A Course in Miracles, or anything that makes us think and discuss. When a quote is placed we recommend some comment or questions for discussion to be placed with them.

We start this as an open group with moderation to make sure posts focus in the desired direction. We will reject posts that do not apply or seem to be proselytizing for a point of view. Political thoughts will be permitted if they are connected with the teachings of the Ancient Wisdom. Others may be rejected. Please focus on the Ancient Wisdom and spiritual principles.

We prefer quotes of a hundred words or less as fodder for thought, unless an article is particularly interesting. Links to longer articles of spiritual interest are fine.

Here is the most famous quote from the Bailey writings:

THE GREAT INVOCATION

From the point of Light within the Mind of God

Let light stream forth into the minds of men.

Let Light descend on Earth.

From the point of Love within the Heart of God

Let love stream forth into the hearts of men.

May Christ return to Earth.

From the centre where the Will of God is known

Let purpose guide the little wills of men

The purpose which the Masters know and serve.

From the centre which we call the race of men

Let the Plan of Love and Light work out.

And may it seal the door where evil dwells.

Let Light and Love and Power restore the Plan on Earth

Questions

Why is the word “point” used here – or should we say, why was this word chosen?

What is the Plan?

Comment

So if God is represented by a dimensionless point and love is a point “within the heart of God” then we have a point within a point. How is this possible in a place without time or space?

This indeed leads to a great mystery. If the Source of all things that we call God is not form but the cause of it then what happens if all the motion in form ceases and the wavelengths flatline? If form is created on the principle of illusion through thought then what remains when form is no more? Is it nothing?

DK says this: “From the higher vision, that sees the subtler continuously overshadowing the dense when not in objective manifestation, pralaya is simply subjectivity, and is not that “which is not,” but simply that which is esoteric. Treatise on Cosmic Fire Pg 130

So during pralaya when form ceases to exist there is still something there. It is a subjective world in “esoteric” (hidden) existence beyond form, but the originator of it.

Because it cannot be represented in three dimensional portrayal it can only be described as a point. From this point all things manifest whether it be an atom or a planet. Within this point is subjective mind with the potential to manifest all form, light, love and power.

The basic intelligence that brought us all into manifestation is formless and can only be represented in form by a formless point.

The quoted invocation says:

“Let Light and Love and Power restore the Plan on Earth.”

What do you suppose the “Plan” is as taught by DK?

DK says this about the plan:

“You might here ask and rightly so: What is this plan? When I speak of the plan I do not mean such a general one as the plan of evolution or the plan for humanity which we call by the somewhat unmeaning term of soul unfoldment. These two aspects of the scheme for our planet are taken for granted, and are but modes, processes and means to a specific end. The plan as at present sensed, and for which the Masters are steadily working, might be defined as follows:—It is the production of a subjective synthesis in humanity and of a telepathic interplay which will eventually annihilate time. It will make available to every man all past achievements and knowledges, it will reveal to man the true significance of his mind and brain and make him the master of that equipment and will make him therefore omnipresent and eventually open the door to omniscience. This next development of the plan will produce in man an understanding —intelligent and cooperative—of the divine purpose for which the One in Whom we live and move and have our being has deemed it wise to submit to incarnation. Think not that I can tell of the plan as it truly is. It is not possible for any man, below the grade of initiate of the third degree, to glimpse it and far less understand it. The development of the mechanism whereby a disciple may be en rapport with Those responsible for the working out of the plans, and the capacity to know (and not just dimly sense) that tiny aspect of the whole which is the immediate step ahead and with which cooperation is possible, that can be achieved by all disciples and should be held as the goal before all aspirants. `With the exception of probationary disciples who are not as yet sufficiently stable in their endeavour, all can therefore strive towards achieving continuity of consciousness and at awakening that inner light which, when seen and intelligently used, will serve to reveal other aspects of the Plan and specially that one to which the illumined knower can respond and usefully serve.

“To bring this about has been the objective of all training given during the past 400 years, and from this fact you can vision the utter patience of the Knowers of the race. They work slowly and with deliberation, free from any sense of speed, towards Their objective, but—and herein lies the immediate interest of what I have to communicate—They do have a time limit. This is based upon the Law of Cycles. It concerns the operation of certain periods of opportunity which necessarily have their term. During these times of opportunity, forces, influences, and energies are temporarily at work, and of these the Masters seek to make use.”
