The Effect of Thought on the Lower Kingdoms of Nature

 

The rapid developments in light technology are a symbol of the soul light that is steadily waxing in human consciousness; energy follows thought and the more enlightened humanity’s thinking, the more beautiful and refined will become the illumination of the physical plane.

There is still a long way to go, of course, and the following remark made in the book A Treatise on White Magic over sixty years ago still has relevance today: “The tendencies of human desire and thought are not at this time of the highest order, and….the vast assembly of insects which now haunt our planet and cause increasing concern to the scientist, agriculturist, and all those dealing with the welfare of the human animal, are the direct result of thought precipitation.”

This extraordinary statement reveals how direct the relationship is between human consciousness and the natural world. The subhuman kingdoms of nature are also in search of greater light, and the quality of human thinking either assists or hinders their cause. To understand how the spiritualization of man’s thinking would end the insect pest and bring beauty and harmony to the planetary ecosystem, we can consider the iridescent splendour of a butterfly’s wings. According to Rudolph Steiner, the thread of substance that the caterpillar spins into a cocoon from its own body is fused with spiritual force patterns inherent in the sunbeam. Within this spiritual light imprisoned in the chrysalis, a new creature is formed that flies out as a sun-being.

Always the effect of spiritual forces imprisoned in light is to produce colour and this is seen to great effect in the butterfly’s wings. It is a lower correspondence of the way in which the soul colours its own body of expression on the mental plane. Here, the light of the spiritual sun is fused with the purified substance of the disciple’s thought life. This process can only occur because the human being is individualized and has an aspect of the ego – which we refer to as “I” – residing within his physical plane consciousness which does the thinking. The inhabitants of the lower kingdoms of nature have no individualized ego and cannot think in this way. Therefore the group soul of each sub-human species works externally on each life-form in cooperation with sunlight – colouring and beautifying the form nature; and this, in turn, stimulates and refines the nascent point of consciousness within.

As the disciple purifies the “I” state of consciousness, it becomes as a spiritual sun radiating its light into the lower kingdoms of nature. Fused with natural sunlight, it accelerates the evolution of the group souls of all the myriads of species of fauna and flora who work upon refining their form nature. And so, through the transmutation of humanity’s thought life will come the lifting of “Nature, red in tooth and claw” into a more harmonious state of consciousness – the butterfly’s wings being a symbol of this process.

As we work towards that time, the knowledge that human consciousness either enlightens, beautifies and harmonizes the natural world – or darkens, spoils and increases conflict within it – serves as food for thought for every aspiring esotericist. It is the deeper meaning hidden in the quote that “the magical work, and the next twenty-five hundred years will bring about so much change and make possible the working of so many so-called ‘miracles’ that even the outer appearance of the world will be profoundly altered. ”  (Esoteric Psychology I, p.83)

The bright and delicate butterfly fluttering in the air is a symbol of the world to be when mankind has achieved an enlightened state of mind and is subsequently transforming nature. And just as the caterpillar weaves the cocoon from which the butterfly emerges and takes to the air, so does the disciple weave in the light, colouring his egoic body and spinning the rainbow bridge across the mental plane into the air of the buddhic realm. It is for this reason that meditation on the butterfly stimulates the mind aspect, and why the adept associated with the Alice Bailey teachings gave to one of his disciples the following “magical phrase” for the development of his mental body:

"Like a golden butterfly which flies in the face of the sun, I find myself poised upon the lotus petal of the earth. I hover; I stay a little moment and then I fly—into the golden pathway that leads unto the sun." 1

Sutra 145

da "Foglie del Giardino di Morya "

Quanto all'uso delle Mie medicine,
tutte le virtù del regno vegetale si devono dirigere
all'unico scopo per cui esistono - l'aumento di vitalità.
E' possibile curare qualsiasi malanno con l'energia vitale.

Esistono piante che sono come serbatoi di prana.
I pini lo raccolgono con i loro aghi elettrici.
E, legami fra il cielo e le profondità della terra,
il pianeta è coperto di antenne viventi che afferrano e serbano
il vero elemento capace di rinnovare il tessuto spirituale.

Una malattia può essere nascosta dall'ignoranza, ma è meglio consumarla con il fuoco della vita.
Non con uno stimolante artificiale, che finisce per esaurire,
ma con la forza vitale che ristabilisce l'equilibrio.

Non la si cerchi fra i minerali, da lungo ormai privi degli effetti del prana. Il loro impiego è diverso.
Ma la manifestazione del sole è vivificante.

In vero il suolo minerale provvede un apparente sostegno alla vita, ma non è che un pedale, inutile senza corde.
E pertanto la Mia Farmacia è diretta all'essenza che è comune al genere umano.
Essa afferma la vitalità senza eccidi, poiché le piante passano con facilità nello stato successivo.
Le inoculazioni giovano se la qualità vitale è la stessa,
altrimenti agiscono come un empiastro distruttivo.

Chi è pervaso di vitalità non ne ha bisogno; gode di quella che è detta immunità solare.

La vitalità nelle campagne è scarsa perchè il prana giova solo se assorbito coscientemente.
Solo in tal modo si alimenta lo spirito.

...Il fuoco di Zoroastro era resina di cedro che ardeva nel calice ".

Vegetable Kingdom FIORI FLOWERS

'' Regarding the application of My medicines, all the powers of the vegetable kingdom must be directed toward the one aim for which they exist—the increase of vitality. It is possible to cure all ailments by the counterpoising of vitality.

Certain plants exist as reservoirs of prana. The pine trees collect it as if in electric needles. And as a bond between heaven and the depths of earth, the earth is covered with living antennae which gather and preserve the true renewing element of the spiritual tissue.

Ignorance may conceal a malady, but it is better to consume it with the fire of life. Not by an artificial, depleting stimulant, but by using the life force to restore the balance.

One should not search among the minerals, because they have long ago become devoid of the effect of prana. Their destination is different. But the solar manifestation bestows life.

Truly, the mineral soil provides a seeming foothold on life; but this is only a pedal, which is useless without strings. And so, My pharmacy will be directed toward the essence which is common to mankind. It will affirm vitality without any slaughter, because the plants pass easily into the next state.

Inoculations are good if the vitality is equal to them, otherwise they are like a destructive plaster. A being who possesses full vitality is in no need of inoculations; he has the so-called solar immunity.

There is little vitality in the villages, because prana helps only when absorbed consciously. Nourishment of the spirit can proceed only consciously.

To the indications about medicines one should add that the skins of the musk animals were valued in Lemuria. Also, a chalice of cedar resin figured in the rituals of the consecration of the kings of the ancient Khorassan. Druids also called the chalice of cedar resin the chalice of life. And only later, with the loss of the realization of the spirit, was it replaced by blood.

The fire of Zoroaster was the result of burning of the cedar resin in the chalice. ''

Its Australia's Federation birthday today, using the 1901 horoscope. Capricorn Australia will be covered in the forthcoming newsletter in a few days - with some of the esoteric reasons of what is going on. It is truly an unprecedented and ferocious firestorm that does not look like letting up.

Many south coastal towns in NSW were literally "midnight at midday", totally blacked out - a very eerie and unsettling situation for many. Supermarkets are running out of food, likewise fuel, mobile phone towers are out - people queuing up at phone boxes, once thought redundant.
