Cultivating the Angel of the Presence and Diminishing The Dweller on the Threshold
Dorothy Tilson


As we move into the Aquarian Age we find ourselves at present in, as a phrase from the Archive states: "A time of rending, when the mountains, which have sheltered, fall from their high places, and the voices of men are lost in the crash and thunder of their fall."1 This is a time where we see individuals, groups, and nations expressing their 6th ray macho separate individual natures, which in their attempt to adjust to each other results in aggression, wars, economic suppression and chaos. However, at the same time there are those individuals, groups, and nations responding to the incoming 7th ray where "The angel of the Presence lifts one hand into the blue of heaven. He plunges deep the other hand into the sea of forms. Thus he connects the world of form and formless life. Heaven to earth he brings; earth into heaven. The two are one. The Word is Manifest."2

This chaotic time, at present, will undoubtedly continue until the majority of individuals, groups, and nations understand and work with the energies of the seventh ray. When this happens the "Dweller on the Threshold" will rapidly diminish—this dark cloud can fade away leaving direct light to flow in to the entities thus involved. The power of the selfish will be lost in identification with the whole; disorder and chaos will be lost in understanding of the Plan; wrong use of speech and untruths disappear; and, selfish perversion of soul powers will dissolve into Reality.

We may ask, what are the rays? The Ageless Wisdom tells us that seven great rays exist in the cosmos. In our solar system, it is the 2nd ray of Love-Wisdom that informs all life. "The seven subdivisions constitute the 'seven rays,' which, wielded by our solar Logos form the basis of endless variations in His system of worlds. In fact there is nothing in the whole solar system, at whatever stage of evolution it may stand, which does not belong and has not belonged to one or other of the seven rays.3

At this time those who work with the "Angel of the Presence" seek the "Ways of God" and apply this energy to the dark places of the planet. It has been proven by the scientist, Dr. Robert J. Moon,4 that space contains no vacuum—that all is energy. He proved by experiment that by pushing an object through space, there is reactive impedance. Since all is energy, the movement of your little finger moves energy. But, where does this energy go? We might extend this same question to our thoughts (which have form); where do they go? We do see a result of this and we call it the "Dweller on the Threshold." Since this was created by evil and harmful thought power, it seems reasonable that this dark cloud hovering over humanity, hindering response to the Light can be removed by the opposite—good thought and meditation. This process will be enhanced by the cosmic seventh ray—the Lord of Ceremonial Order, who is called by many names. I like "the Fiery Unifier." If we each play our part, the United Nations Millennium goals, which exemplify beneficent thoughts for all life on our planet, can possibly come to fruition during this period.

In the transition period into the Aquarian Age, "the sixth ray fostered the vision. The energy of the seventh ray will help humanity materialize that which has been envisioned. Facilitating the development of individuation, the sixth ray, as part of the evolutionary plan, led to separation, to nationalism, and to sectarianism, due to the selective nature of the mind and its tendency to divide and separate. The seventh ray will lead to fusion and synthesis, for this energy blends spirit and matter. It unifies."5 As we are successful in aligning with and then expressing this incoming energy into our daily lives, so we can all look forward to an era of true Brotherhood, and to peace and goodwill between all peoples.

4 21st Century Science & Technology, Dr. Robert J. Moon: 'Space Must Be Quantized':
"The velocity of light times the permeability of free space is what we call the impedance of free space. There is something very interesting about the impedance of free space. According to accepted theory, free space is a vacuum. If this is so, how can it exhibit impedance? But it does. The answer, of course, is that there is no such thing as a vacuum, and what we call free space has a structure.
"The impedance of free space is called reactive impedance, since we can store energy in it without the energy dissipating. Similarly, radiation will travel through a vacuum without losing energy. Since there is no matter in free space, there is nothing there to dissipate the energy. There is nothing for the radiation to collide with, so to speak, or be absorbed by, so the energy just keeps there. This is what we call the reactive component." pp. 26-27.
