If there are obstacles, not 'the infinite

If you can count, not the stars

If you tremble or shake, and not 'a mountain

If increases or decreases, is not 'an ocean

If it passes over the bridges, not 'a river

If you can 'grasp, and not' the rainbow

Here are the parables of the six external perceptions


The Externalisation of the Hierarchy

E-mail Print PDF
Julia Yakub a Blavatsky Bailey Roerich
Now that we are freed from our normal daily distractions and are forced to think about the future - what do we want our future to be like? Here are some guidelines, offered by DK in The Externalisation of the Hierarchy.
Let's join our efforts together in this beneficial thoughtform, as a group, and help to bring it into manifestation - at this time, when everything is possible.
Steps Towards the New World Order
"In contradistinction to the totalitarian world order, what should the rest of the world plan? Towards what world objectives should the democracies work? Utopian schemes, idealistic forms of government and cultural living processes have ever been the playthings of the human mind, down through the centuries. But these Utopias have been so far ahead of possibility that their presentation seems useless. They are most of them wholly impractical.
Certain immediate possibilities and attainable objectives can, however, be worked out, given a definite will-to-good and patience on the part of humanity.
Certain major and spiritual premises should lie back of all efforts to formulate the new world order. Let me state some of them:
1. The new world order must meet the immediate need and not be an attempt to satisfy some distant, idealistic vision.
2. The new world order must be appropriate to a world which has passed through a destructive crisis and to a humanity which is badly shattered by the experience.
3. The new world order must lay the foundation for a future world order which will be possible only after a time of recovery, of reconstruction, and of rebuilding.
4. The new world order will be founded on the recognition that all men are equal in origin and goal but that all are at differing stages of evolutionary development; that personal integrity, intelligence, vision and experience, plus a marked goodwill, should indicate leadership. The domination of the proletariat over the aristocracy and bourgeoisie, as in Russia, or the domination of an entrenched aristocracy over the proletariat and middle classes, as has been until lately the case in Great Britain, must disappear. The control of labour by capital or the control of capital by labour must also go.
5. In the new world order, the governing body in any nation should be composed of those who work for the greatest good of the greatest number and who at the same time offer opportunity to all, seeing to it that the individual is left free. Today the men of vision are achieving recognition, thus making possible a right choice of leaders. It was not possible until this century.
6. The new world order will be founded on an active sense of responsibility. The rule will be "all for one and one for all." This attitude among nations will have to be developed. It is not yet present.
7. The new world order will not impose a uniform type of government, a synthetic religion and a system of standardisation upon the nations. The sovereign rights of each nation will be recognised and its peculiar genius, individual trends and racial qualities will be permitted full expression. In one particular only should there be an attempt to produce unity, and that will be in the field of education.
8. The new world order will recognise that the produce of the world, the natural resources of the planet and its riches, belong to no one nation but should be shared by all. There will be no nations under the category "haves" and others under the opposite category. A fair and properly organised distribution of the wheat, the oil and the mineral wealth of the world will be developed, based upon the needs of each nation, upon its own internal resources and the requirements of its people. All this will be worked out in relation to the whole.
9. In the preparatory period for the new world order there will be a steady and regulated disarmament. It will not be optional. No nation will be permitted to produce and organise any equipment for destructive purposes or to infringe the security of any other nation. One of the first tasks of any future peace conference will be to regulate this matter and gradually see to the disarming of the nations.
These are the simple and general premises upon which the new world order must begin its work. These preliminary stages must be kept fluid and experimental; the vision of possibility must never be lost, and the foundations must be preserved inviolate, but the intermediate processes and the experimentations must be carried forward by men who, having the best interests of the whole at heart, can change the detail of organisation whilst preserving the life of the organism." (EH p.190-192)

Present moment ....

"To live on this shifting ground, one first needs to stop obsessing about what has happened before and what might happen later. One needs to be more vitally conscious of what is happening now. This not to deny the reality of past and future. It is about embarking on a new relationship with the impermanence and temporality of life.

Instead of hankering after the past and speculating about the future, one sees the present as the fruit of what has been and the germ of what will be. Gotama did not encourage withdrawal to a timeless, mystical now, but an unflinching encounter with the contingent world as it unravels moment to moment." (Stephen Batchelor, Confessions of a Buddhist Atheist)

Every person gives off a particular note and color that can be heard clairaudiently or seen clairvoyantly as well as certain geometric shapes seen in there different auric sheaths. This is how the Masters assess our relative place on the Spiritual Path and any progress made from lifetime to another.
It is a common experience of certain aromatic smells that come from the Masters and can be detected during moments of penetration into their ashrams through meditation. Each person also emanates a certain smell that can be ascertained and will reveal the condition of their etheric body and its lower extension of the physical from or body.
The article on this woman smelling disease will become more prevalent by more people as time goes by and will become in there higher expressions and correspondences a natural occurring part of the race.If one can smell disease before it becomes terminal it can be more easily healed or addressed.
The senses according to the works of D.K have many higher extensions or expressions, sight can be expanded into clairvoyance, and hearing into the realm of clairaudience and it would not seem too much of a stretch to see how on higher levels of spiritual perception the senses might not only be expanded to new levels of sensitivity but overrun their normal boundaries and become interspersed with other senses that are normally isolated and distinct from each other. The soul is a homogeneous unit of synthesizing light, sound and color and could easily unify many of the lower common senses men except as distinctly separate or individual expressions.
All the senses of man have higher there higher correspondences as outlined in a Treatise on Cosmic Fire ­
One of the higher correspondences of human smell is the Atmic Plane of Spiritual will.
1. Physical Hearing.
2. Astral Touch or feeling.
3. Mental Sight.
4. Buddhic Taste.
5. Atmic Smell.
DK has this to say about sound and the importance of tuning or refining ones inner or etheric ear.
“The key for man to discover and turn, concerns itself with the revealing of the mystery of:
a. His own sound.
b. His brother's sound.
c. His group sound.
d. The sound of that one of the Heavenly Men with whom he is connected.
e. The sound of the Logos, or the sound of nature; of the solar system, of the Grand Man of the Heavens.
Therefore, we note that on the physical plane a man has to find his own note, finding it in spite of the density of the form.
a. On the physical plane he finds his own note.
b. On the astral plane he finds his brother's note; through identity of emotion he comes to the recognition of his brother's identity.
c. On the mental plane he begins to find his group note.
d. On the buddhic plane, or the plane of wisdom, he begins to find the note of his planetary Logos.
e. On the atmic, or spiritual, plane the note logoic begins to sound within his consciousness.

Bruce Lyon 24 marzo - So here we are ....

So here we are - what seemed impossible some months ago and yet was predicted by all our hearts, has happened. The whole human world is in pause, turning inwards, facing their fears and finding out who they really are when crisis arrives. What matters? Really?
Once we get past making sure we are safe ( are we ever?), that the ones we care about are safe and that we have enough toilet paper what then?

This note is an encouragement to listen to the soul of the world via your own soul.

The coronavirus is not the main event here - simply a way of getting all our attention. Not to spend it online or in endless fascination with the latest death statistics. In fact I am rather hoping the internet may become overloaded so that we remember that our outer connectedness is simply a symbol of what we have forgotten - our inner connectedness. We are part of something and the mechanism for feeling that wholeness has atrophied with our focus on busyness and the material world. We are living vibrating instruments that, when calibrated properly, are capable of listening to the splendour of creation, the song of the cosmos and participating in the sacred dance of life.
We have meaning and synergy and life force welling up inside us if we will only stop and turn our awareness to it.

The soul of the world wants to talk to our souls. You may have your own way of listening. For some it is meditation or prayer. For others it speaks to them when they are creating music, poetry or art. For others it whispers through their bodies in dance, love making or acts of kindness and service to others. For some it is the natural world that sings to their soul and for others it is the dream world and inner visions. Whether all, none or one of these is your way - this is the time to self reflect and listen. The soul of the world is wise and infinitely adaptable. Each person who listens can receive their own tailor made input designed specifically for the circumstances and inherent creativity of their evolution. This will be a powerful antidote to the focus on being told what to do by the experts and the politicians.

What is being broken here is our reliance on the ego, materially oriented mind and existing power structures to protect us, direct us and reflect us. When we look back in hindsight at the way we have allowed our lives to follow imperatives which have been destructive to ourselves and our world we will be shocked. So deeply shocked that we may be incapable of behaving like sheep again.

After the crisis is past there will be much to reflect upon. We will have to face ourselves and our actions, individually and collectively. Each small and large act will be weighed by our hearts to see if it was motivated by fear and greed or sourced in love.

Humanity needs to remember its origin and destiny. This shake up is a wake up. May there be no return to business as usual until we get it. May we take that leap that reminds us that the only real survival that matters is our capacity to love. May 2020 be an irrevocable portal of initiation that we pass through into the heart of the world.
