Each human being is a cell within the divine consciousness that ensouls, not only planet Earth, but also the vaster bodies of the solar system and the universe. The evolving human consciousness ever seeks a deeper understanding of the relationship that binds it to this greater cosmic whole of which Helena Blavatsky wrote extensively within the Secret Doctrine and which Albert Einstein defined for the scientific community as the relationship between energy and matter.
The Ageless Wisdom brought forth by the Tibetan Master, Djwhal Khul, and presented within the books authored by Alice Bailey, explains even more specifically that in this second solar system, form or matter is used expressly for purposes of manifestation, as a medium of expression and as a vehicle whereby the indwelling life may grow, expand, experience and realize itself.
Herein, it is taught that the solar Logos—God—is the sum total of every state of consciousness or awareness:
“Man,—humanity as a whole, or an individual unit—is part of that total. The many minds, from the mind of the atom (recognized by science) to the mind of God Himself, through all grades of thinkers and stages of awareness, are responsible for every form found in our system. As we work from the infinitely small to the infinitely great, from the microcosm to the macrocosm, a gradually expanding state of consciousness and a steadily increasing condition of awareness becomes apparent.”2
Here, is the eternal hope and challenge for humanity. The Breath of Life is here, present among us and in all forms of expression, including, pervading and yet, remaining transcendent. It is greater than all appearance and it reveals Itself progressively and cyclically, in response to humanity’s increase in knowledge and understanding.
It is the pull of the overshadowing "remaining Self" that draws the little fragment back to its originating source. Eternally present, the divine seed—the spiritual potential within each human being—each a part of the third planetary center, Humanity, must be awakened so that it can grow and flourish, bringing Light and spreading enlightenment to the entire planet.
There is then both the evolution of form or substance and the evolution of spirit or consciousness. The three outstanding types of forms are the form of the atom, the true microcosm; the form of the individual man/woman—the macrocosm for all the subhuman kingdoms; and, the form of God—a solar system, the macrocosm for man and all the superhuman stages.
All of these forms, including all the intermediate forms, are dependent upon some life, endowed with the capacity to think and through thought impulse to modify and influence sentient substance, building it into forms.
In the fourth book of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali, Illumination, it is taught that “forms are cognized or not, according to the qualities latent in the perceiving consciousness;” It is explained that:
“Herein lies the clue to our limitations. Herein lies the promise of our success. Latent faculty, when developed, will reveal to us a new world. The hidden powers of the soul when brought to full expression will make us aware of a new world and reveal to us a scheme of life and a kingdom of being hitherto negated by us, because not seen. Hence the need for every investigator of the mysteries of existence to bring to his search his full equipment, and hence the necessity therefore for this process of soul unfoldment to be carried forward and potential faculties to be developed if the truth in its fullness is ever to be realized.” 3
The scientific certainty is that as we progress into the Age of Aquarius so will individuals increasingly be able to contact their own inner divinity and as a result, they will recognize the divinity within others. In full conscious awareness humanity will increasingly recognize the Light, Love and Power that eternally endure, awaiting to be revealed and manifested.
