Quote of the Month

February 2017

point arises here which is one of real moment or perhaps, I should say that a question might here be asked:  How does it happen that one tiny non-sacred planet should be considered of such importance that these Lives should be concerned with the unfoldment of mind in humanity?  The answer is that they are not.  It is humanity which—under the urge of great inflowing and outflowing energies—is concerned with the problem of mental development.  In the last analysis, the problem of response to and interpretation of the environing contacts is one which is to be found on every planet and particularly upon the non-sacred planets.  This response must be evoked, not only in the fourth kingdom in nature but in all the kingdoms.  Our solar system is one in which sensitivity to contact is the dominant quality; it is in process of becoming cosmically aware; it is driven by need and environing cosmic circumstance to develop love-wisdom and both these words are descriptive and expressive of the consciousness aspect.  Love is response to contact and this—in the human being—means understanding, inclusiveness and identification.  Wisdom connotes skill in action as the result of developed love and the light of understanding; it is awareness of requirements and ability to bring together into a fused relationship the need and that which will meet it.  Service is essentially a scientific mode of expressing love-wisdom under the influence of one or other of the seven rays, according to the soul ray of the serving disciple.  The whole problem is one concerning our planetary Logos.  It might be said (in order to make our theme comprehensible to you) that the evolutionary process—from the standpoint of the ordinary human being—is to make the non-sacred planet, our Earth, responsive to cosmic impacts thus bringing more inter-related and inner integration into the logoic body of expression.  There are other purposes but it is only after the third initiation that a man begins to comprehend them.
