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 Master Djwal Khul

The Master Djwal Khul

 

                                                    The Master Djwal Khul, known to many as the Tibetan, was a former student of the Master Kuthumi. Because of his specialized knowledge in Occult Philosophy and Cosmic law, Djwal Khul played a key role in communicating the Brotherhood's ideas and advice to the founders of the theosophy movement, Helena P. Blavatsky and Henry Steel Olcott, in the late 1880's and 1890's. He dictated a large part of H. P. Blavatsky 's The Secret Doctrine. It is for this reason he has been called "the Messenger of the Masters."

When the great wars of 1914 - 1945 embroiled the world in conflict, he was given the task of providing that bridge teaching necessary to guide the world through a critical period and he did this by dictating volumes of Ageless Wisdom teachings through Alice A. Bailey (whose teacher was also the Master Kuthumi). He was instrumental in helping Mrs. Bailey set up a prototypical esoteric organization called the Arcane School (see www.lucistrust.org) that will eventually evolve into that needed for the dissemination of the World Teacher's teachings.

The Master Djwal Khul is profoundly learned and knows more about the rays and planetary Hierarchies of the solar system than anyone else in the ranks of the Masters. He works with those who heal, and cooperates unknown and unseen with the seekers after truth in the world's great laboratories, with all who aim at healing and comforting the world, and with the great philanthropic world movements such as the Red Cross. He also works with certain groups of devas of the ethers, who are the healing devas, in their work to heal some of humanity's physical ills.

Little is known of the Master Djwal Khul's past lives although we know he is closely associated with the Master Morya and of course, his teacher, the Master Kuthumi. These three incarnated at the time of Jesus' birth as the three Magis or Wise Men who followed the Star of Bethlehem to the Holy Infant and later saw to it that he was protected from the machinations of King Herod.

In characteristic style of the non-imposing and humble, Master Djwal Khul is quoted as follows regarding the teachings he put forth through Alice A. Bailey:

 

"Suffice it to say, that I am a Tibetan disciple of a certain degree, and this tells you but little, for all are disciples from the humblest aspirant to, and beyond, the Christ Himself. I live in a physical body like other men, on the borders of Tibet, and at times (from the exoteric standpoint) preside over a large group of Tibetan lamas, when my other duties permit. It is this fact that caused it to be reported that I am an abbot of this particular lamasery. Those associated with me in the work of the Hierarchy (and all true disciples are associated in this work) know me by still another name and office. A.A.B. knows who I am and recognizes me by two of my names.

I am a brother of yours, who has traveled a little longer upon the Path than has the average student, and has therefore incurred greater responsibilities. I am one who has wrestled and fought his way into a greater measure of light than has the aspirant who will read this article, and I must therefore act as a transmitter of the light, no matter what the cost. I am not an old man, as age counts among the teachers, yet I am not young or inexperienced. My work is to teach and spread the knowledge of the Ageless Wisdom wherever I can find a response, and I have been doing this for many years. I seek also to help the Master Morya and the Master Kuthumi whenever the opportunity offers, for I have been long connected with Them and with Their work. In all the above, I have told you much; yet at the same time I have told you nothing which would lead you to offer me that blind obedience and the foolish devotion which the emotional aspirant offers to the Guru and Master whom he is as yet unable to contact. Nor will he make that desired contact until he has transmuted emotional devotion into unselfish service to humanity, --not to the Master.

The books that I have written are sent out with no claim for their acceptance. They may, or may not, true and useful. It is for you to ascertain the truth by right practice and by the exercise of the intuition. Neither I nor A.A.B. is the least interested in having them acclaimed as inspired writings, or in having anyone speak of them (with bated breath) as being the work of one of the Masters. If they present truth in such a way that it follows sequentially upon that already offered in the world teachings, if the information given raises the aspiration and the will-to-serve from the plane of the emotions to that of the mind (the plane where on the Masters can be found) then they will have served their purpose. If the teaching conveyed calls for the response from the illumined mind of the worker in the world, and brings a flashing fourth of his intuition, then let that teaching be accepted. But not otherwise. If the statements meet with eventual corroborations, or are deemed true under the test of the Law of Correspondences, then that is well and good. But should this not be so, let not the student accept what is said."
(Extract From A Statement By The Tibetan, August 1934, A Preface to the many volumes of Alice A. Bailey's works.)

A second ray (Ray of Wisdom) Master, the Master Djwal Khul works with the energy of right human relations. His Ashram is closely linked to the first ray Ashram of the Master Morya, through the work of Men of Goodwill and through all goodwill movements in the world. Goodwill is essentially an expression of the second Ray of Love Wisdom. He also works in close cooperation with the Ashram of Sanctus Germanus in applying intelligent activity to the energy of goodwill, a task demanded of all men and women of goodwill throughout the world.

 

 

 

Capricorn Keynote

Join us on Wednesday, December 30, 2009

Williams Club, 24 East 39th Street
 (between Madison & Park), New York, NY

 

Keynote of Capricorn:

Lost am I in light supernal, yet on that light I turn my back.

CAPRICORN GUARDS THE secret of the soul, the secret of the hidden glory, revealed to the disciple at the climax of the third initiation, the transfiguration on the mountain top of the personality by the soul.  But this revelation can occur only as the result of effort, of the ability to rise above the limitations of the personality, to persist on the upward way in spite of hindrances and difficulties.  There is no easy way for an individual to free himself from his own limitations of selfishness and separateness; and there are no short cuts.  It is a long, painful process in which we learn eventually by personal experience that self-discipline, self-control and self-sacrifice form the foundation stones of discipleship.

On this foundation the superstructure of a loving, responsible way of life, reflecting the values of the soul, may eventually develop.  This growth in consciousness becomes the way of initiation, the way to the mountain top, towards the supernal light which reveals the soul as the real Self, the Plan as the responsibility of discipleship, and the spiritual Hierarchy of the planet as the center of love into which initiation admits the accepted disciple.  Capricorn is therefore the outstanding sign of initiation.

At the time of each full moon Festival, energy qualified by the constellation influencing the period flows into the range of human awareness, establishing the divine attributes in the consciousness of humanity.  This spiritual inflow can be channeled in meditation into the minds and hearts of all people.

The technique of meditation governs all expansions of consciousness, all registration of Plan or Purpose and the entire process of evolutionary unfoldment.

The monthly full moon work is providing the seed of the coming new world religion.  In the future all people of spiritual inclination and intention everywhere will keep the same holy days.  This unanimity of effort will bring about a pooling of spiritual resources and a united spiritual effort.  Individuals involved in this invocation work will increasingly be able to act as mediating points, bringing in great spiritual energies and stepping them down for the benefiting and stimulation of the masses and the three lower kingdoms.

The characteristic human qualities of idealism and intuition are stimulated by the energy flowing through Sagittarius into our solar system, into our planet and into the center of consciousness we call humanity.  These are soul qualities inherent in all of us. 


 

Tibetan Flags

E-mail Print PDF
faded.. by jhnhtt.

"Traditionally, prayer flags are used to promote peace, compassion, strength, and wisdom. The flags do not carry prayers to 'gods,' a common misconception, rather the Tibetans believe the prayers and mantras will be blown by the wind to spread the good will and compassion into all pervading space. Therefore, prayer flags are thought to bring benefit to all.

By hanging flags in high places the "Wind Horse" will carry the blessings depicted on the flags to all beings. As wind passes over the surface of the flags which are sensitive to the slightest movement of the wind, the air is purified and sanctified by the Mantras.

The prayers of a flag become a permanent part of the universe as the images fade from exposure to the elements. Just as life moves on and is replaced by new life, Tibetans renew their hopes for the world by continually mounting new flags alongside the old. This act symbolizes a welcoming of life changes and an acknowledgment that all beings are part of a greater ongoing cycle."

Sacred Love - Poetry

POETRY

Sacred Love

My heart fish

has found the river of our love

and runs clear to the ocean

that is not ours but the domain of love itself

In your embrace

I am held by the lovers of all ages

your eyes hold the same light

that resurrected Lazarus

and at your touch I feel

Krishna pick up his flute

This love is not held secret

for its fragility

to be kept safe

from the calculating eyes of the world

But for its awesome power

A power that would tear hearts open

returning all fish to their source

When people are only asking for a bucket

or a small pond with one lotus and a frog to kiss

I stay silent

sinking ever deeper

taking our silver

into the dark sea of Love itself
