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

Milarepa



Heart - Sutra 534

E-mail Print PDF

It is wrong for people not to pay attention to the effects of eating during irritation and agitation.  Very strong poisons are formed by this unwise procedure.  Many days must pass before the poison will dissolve. It should be remembered that hunger is farbetter than harmful food. During irritation and excitement I advise milk in all forms as a customary antidote. 

Soda strengthens the action of milk.  The ability to recognise disquietude is already a considerable step toward the education of the heart. If disquietude occurs, one should be able to nullify it; but often disquietude is confused with fatigue, then let us not overlook musk or certain varieties of phosphorus, the substance that is called sperm oil, andcod-liver and fresh kumiss which are popular among northern people.

Also, you remember to what an extent the Teacher sends rays at night, but even these rays act far more powerfully when they are recognized.  The silence of the ancients during meal had a sacred significance.  But the understanding of sacredness also comprise the cure.  Thus, the heart and the nerves can often be strengthened by a rational partaking of food.  We are not Luculluses, but each vital function must be rational.  Many workers have poisoned themselves.  Moreover, the Chinese sometimes fed the enemy with the liver of an irritated rooster - thus resourceful are human wiles.  But in the New World everything must be directed to Good.

 

Esoteric Psychology - The Law of Attraction

-   The Law of Attraction   - The Seven Rays

- Second Ray - The Lord of Love - Wisdom, who is the embodiment of pure Love, is regarded by the esotericists as being as close to the heart of the Solar Logos as was the beloved disciple close tothe heart of the Christ of Galilee.  This Life instils into all forms the quality of love, with its more material manifestation of desire, and is the attractive principle in nature and the custodian of the Law of Attraction which is the life-demostration of pure Being.  This Lord of Love is the most potent of the seven rays, because He is on the same cosmic ray as the solar Deity.

He expresses Himself primarily through the planet Jupiter, which is His body of manifestation...

...the quality that emerges through the process of manifesting, and under the impulse of the divine Life, is love, which functions through the medium of the Law of Attraction with the aim of producing an ultimate synthesis in consciousness.  Let us not forget that the objective of our present evolutionary process is the unfoldment of conscious awareness.

The entire process is directed towards that consummation...

2025 - data set for first stage of the externalisation of the Spiritual Hierarchy

E-mail Print PDF

...Thus a great and new movement is proceeding and a tremendously increased interplay and interaction is taking place.  This will go on until A.D. 2025. During the years intervening between now and then very great changes will be seeing taking place, and at the great General Assembly of the Hierarchy-held as usual every century-in 2025 the date in all probability will be set for the first stage of the externalisation of the Hierarchy. The present cycle (from now until that date) is called technically  "The Stage of the Forerunner".  It is preparatory in nature, testing in its methods, and intended to be revelatory in its techniques and results. You can see therefore that Chohans, Masters,initiates,world disciples, disciples and aspirants affiliated with the Hierarchy are all at this time passing through a cycle of great activity.

In the adjustement necessitated by the rapidly advancing alignement, the Members of the Hierarchy are fitting Themselves for the objective work of public expression.  This entails far more difficulty than you might imagine or anticipate, because it entails the development of that form of "resistance to the pull of the lower vibration" of which you can know nothing, for that lower vibration is a necessary aspect of your normal expression - little as you may like to realise this.  You need to know that there is nothing in the Masters or higher initiates which can respond to any vibration of this nature. Though They cannot absorb it or react to it or re-develop it again, it can cause Them the acutest discomfort and pain; that is the reason why the Son of God was called in the Old Testament a "man of sorrows and acquainted woth grief".    

This did not in reality refer to His sufferings for poor miserable humanity (as ortodox theology so selfishly interprets it) but to the fact that He had to submit Himself to contact with humanity.  The Hierarchy is therefore, along all lines (many of which I may not indicate or upon which I may not enlarge) , preparing Itself for the experience of physical manifestation; It is also endeavourig to "create" the needed responsive apparatus which will be of such a nature that Members of the Hierarchy may function with the minimum of difficulty on earth and will experience the least possible measure of handicap; They will thus be enabled to give full time and attention to the work done by Them in physical manifestation.

They are endeavouring also toestablish a closer telephatic rapport and a more intimate (though strictly impersonal)  relationship with Their disciples on all rays, so that there can be a free integrity and one which - no matter what may happen in the three worlds-cannot be disrupted or in any way lessened.

Although for Them no astral plane exists and glamour is entirely non-existent,  They have to learn to do most peculiar things:  to work on the astral plane (because it exists for humanity and for the animal kingdom) , to traverse this region of glamour and then to "demonstrate light in dissipating fog" in a manner for which there has hitherto been no call.

Worry and irritation - from an esoteric prospective

E-mail Print PDF

1- The world situation is such, the problems and uncertainty are such, that scarcely a person in the world at this time is exempt. Everyone is more or less involved in the planetary situation.

2- The intercommunication between people has increased so much, and men live so much in massed groups -large or small - that it is inevitable that they produce an effect upon each other as never before. "If one member suffers, all the members suffer with it", it is a statement of truth, ancient but new in application, and today realised for the first time.

3- The increased sensitivity of the human mechanism, is also such that men "tune in" on each other's emotional conditions and mental attitudes, in a new and more potent manner.  To their own engrossing concerns and worries, are added those of their fellowmen with whom they may be en rapport.

4- Telepathically, and also with a developed sense of prevision, men are today adding the difficulties that belong to someone else, or to some other group of thinkers, and of people, to "the difficulties that may be ".  It is not sure that they "will be".

   These problems will demostrate to you how intensely difficult it is for men to face up to life.  It will beobvious that the problems of worry and irritation are many, and must be considered.

   Why are these difficulties of the astral body so "perilious" and serious? Worry and Irritation are dangerous because:

1- They lower vitality of the man to such apoint, that he becomes susceptible todisease. The scourge of influenza, has its roots in fear and worry, and once the world settles down to freedom from the present "fearful" condition, we shall see the disease die out.

2- They are so highly infectious from the astral point of view, that they lower in a peculiar manner the astral atmosphere, and thus make it hard for people - in the astral sense - to breathe freely.

3- Because the astral condition of fear, worry, and irritation are so widely spread today, that they might be regarded as "epidemic", in a planetary sense.

4- Because irritation ( I speak not here of worry ) is inflammatory in its effects - and inflammation is hard to bear - and leads to much difficulty.

It is interesting to note that certain forms of eye trouble are caused by this.

5- Because worry and irritation prevent truevision.They shut out the view. The man who is the victim of these conditions, sees nothing but thecause of his complaints,  and is so submerged through self-pity, self-consideration,  or  in  a focussed negative condition, that his vision is narrowed, and his group hindered.

  There is little that anyone can do when tests and deep distress and anxiety overwhelm a disciple, except to stand  in  love , send  healing thoughts  and  invoke the inner strength  of  the  soul  that the vehicles can be used.
