As the invocative system spreads and a greater alignment is attained, Shamballa—the planetary head centre—invokes energies outside the planetary life and the inflow of cosmic and solar energies will be very much greater; for this the esotericists of the world must be prepared. It will also produce the advent or appearance of many AVATARS, bringing with Them many and very different kinds of energies to those which hitherto have controlled human affairs and the events and evolution of the other, the subhuman kingdoms in nature. With the reappearance of the Christ as the focal point or the supreme Agent of the planetary heart centre, a new era or "divine epoch" will be instituted. The Avatar of Synthesis will draw very close to humanity and He will inaugurate the "reign of Avatars" Who will be embodied Purpose and spiritual Will; They will initiate both the Hierarchy and Humanity into phases of the divine character of which, at present, nothing is known and for which we have no terminology that could convey the exact facts and nature. All that I am attempting to do here is to give you a general outline of events which may lie centuries ahead but which will inevitably occur—once the Christ is again in physical Presence and recognized on Earth.
Though the good effects of
good intentions, of good thoughts and actions are elusive,
still, according to the law of causality, everything
produces an effect. This law is immutable and
sublime. The affirmation of causality in each action
gives a broadening of consciousness; for not fear, but
discernment of actions gives the proper direction.
How beautiful is the law which gives life to every
good and to each creative beginning! Indeed, the
structure of the Cosmos is aggrandized by all the origins
of each hour. Verily, the heroes of the spirit know
how their striving of each day links them with the
construction of life. Thus the law of causality can
direct the thinking towards an understanding of the
infinitude of the Fiery World; when the spirit senses that
it is a link in a Cosmic Chain, as the effect of a cause
and the cause of a new effect. Man will be able to realize
a great deal through this simple understanding of the law
of cause and effect. On the path to the Fiery World let us
remember about the eternal motion of our actionigence
applied to all states through the full conscious
utilisation of the faculty of discriminative love.
Fiery World III, par. 46, Agni Yoga Society, NY.
The Hierarchy seeks to provide
fit conditions for the development of self-consciousness
in all beings. This it produces primarily in man
through its initial work of blending the higher three
aspects of spirit with the lower four; through the example
it sets of service, sacrifice, and renunciation, and
through the constant streams of light (occultly
understood) which emanate from it. The Hierarchy
might be considered as the aggregate on our planet of the
forces of the fifth kingdom in nature. This kingdom
is entered through the full development and control of the
fifth principle of mind, and its transmutation into
wisdom, which is literally the intelligence applied to all
states through the full conscious utilisation of the
faculty of discriminative love.
Initiation Human and Solar, pp. 20-21
Your joy is Our joy.
Leaves of Morya’s Garden, Book One, The Call, par. 334, Agni Yoga Society, NY
It is the principle of freedom
which enables Sanat Kumara to dwell on the Earth and yet
stand free from all contacts, except with Those Who have
trodden the Path of Liberation and now stand free upon the
cosmic physical plane; it is that which enables the
initiate to achieve a state of "isolated unity"; it is
that which lies behind the Spirit of Death and forms the
motivating power of that great releasing Agency; it is
that which provides a "pathway of power" between our
Hierarchy and the distant sun, Sirius, and gives the
incentive towards the "culture of freedom" or of
liberation which motivates the work of the Masters of the
Wisdom; it is that which produced the ferment and the
vortex of conflict in far distant ages and which has been
recognised in the present through the results of the Law
of Evolution in every kingdom in nature; this is that
which "substands" or lies under or behind all
progress. This mysteriously "exerted influence,"
this "pulling away" from form (as we might simply call
it), emanates from Sirius and for it we have no name; it
is the law of which the three cosmic laws—the Laws of
Synthesis, of Attraction and of Economy—are only aspects.
The Rays and the Initiations, pp. 416-417.
Urusvati acknowledged the
cosmic nature of man. People often talk about Macrocosm
and microcosm, and at the same time, do not see their main
foundations. They do not admit the existence of the
primary energy, the Supermundane World and the spiritual
basis of everything. What kind of Macrocosm could it
be without basic foundations? It would be a poor
ruin and the microcosm would be a pitifully deformed
Supermundane, par. 934. Agni Yoga Society, NY.
However, until Christ came and
lived a life of love and service and gave mankind the new
commandment to love, there had been very little emphasis
upon God as Love in any of the world Scriptures. After He
appeared as the Avatar of Love, then God became known as
Love supernal, love as the goal and objective of creation,
love as the basic principle of relationships, and love
working throughout all manifestation towards a plan
motivated by love. This divine quality Christ revealed,
and thus altered all human living and human goals.
The Externalisation of the Hierarchy, pp. 300.
The purification of religions
predicates a new direct relation with the spiritual world.
Christ, Budda and their closest coworkers did not
use magic formulae but acted and created in full blending
with the spirit. Therefore, in the new evolution the
former artificial methods must be abandoned.
Remember cause and effect. The mechanics of
yogism are no longer suitable for the regeneration of the
world. A teacher who sits under a tree and forbids
does not conform to the need.
Illumination, II:III:7, Agni Yoga Society, NY
As I said elsewhere, it is a
fallacy to believe, as some do, that the main trend of
Christ's work is through the medium of the churches or the
world religions. He necessarily works through them when
conditions permit and there is a living nucleus of true
spirituality within them, or when their invocative appeal
is potent enough to reach Him. He uses all possible
channels whereby the consciousness of man may be enlarged
and right orientation may be brought about. It is,
however, truer to say that it is as World Teacher that He
consistently works, and that the churches are but one of
the teaching avenues He employs. All that enlightens the
minds of men, all propaganda that tends to bring about
right human relations, all modes of acquiring real
knowledge, all methods of transmuting knowledge into
wisdom and understanding, all that expands the
consciousness of humanity and of all subhuman states of
awareness and sensitivity, all that dispels glamour and
illusion and that disrupts crystallisation and disturbs
all static conditions, come under the realistic activities
of the department within the Hierarchy which He
supervises. He is limited by the quality and the calibre
of the invocative appeal of humanity and that, in its
turn, is conditioned by the point in evolution attained.
The Externalisation of the Hierarchy, pp. 479-480.
A manifestation must be
understood as evidence not to the eye but to the
consciousness. In this lies the difference between
your and Our understanding. What you call a fact is
a result, whereas We can discern the true fact, invisible
New Era Community, par. 77, Agni Yoga Society, New York
A 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.
Esoteric Astrology, pp. 493-494.
Urusvati knows how lightminded many people are about their own state of readiness. One would think that there exists a great number of heroes ready for self-sacrificing podvig.
Readiness can be flaming, or can be lukewarm. The lukewarm people cheat not only those around them, but also themselves. They do not even notice their own lies, and thus worsen their condition. Truly, it is better for those who acknowledge their unreadiness; at least they can improve themselves. But the cunning one and the boaster close off the path of advancement. Thus, We must constantly remind you about the state of readiness. It alone gives one courage for overcoming all obstacles.
Many speak of their readiness to work with Us, but at the first sign of difficulty they retreat in cowardice. One of the main causes for this is a lack of understanding of the meaning of life. They do not ponder upon the Supermundane Infinity, and are chained to the earthly mirage. Just as a horse kept always in a corral loses the ability to race, so also does the prisoner of Earth lose the ability for rapid advancement.
Thus, when I speak of readiness, I am reminding you about advancement. One should be ever ready for podvig. One must think much about podvig, before putting it into action. It must first be performed mentally, and thought about with such conviction that its implementation in life is unavoidable. Only thus is that living cooperation, about which so many words have been spoken, created.
The Thinker said, “Do you not think that lukewarm readiness is like one drop of nectar diluted by an entire sea?”
Supermundane IV, par. 701, Agni Yoga Society, NY.
