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



Sense of humor -

                                                                                  SENSE OF HUMOR

May I in all earnest offer to you the paradoxical injunction to work with utter earnestness, and yet at the same time to refuse to work with such earnestness, and not to take yourself so earnestly? Those who stand on the inner side, and study the work of the world aspirants today, see an almost pitiful distress of individual deficiency, a sustained and strenuous effort on their part to "make themselves what they ought to be", and yet at the same time a distressing lack of proportion, and no sense of humor whatsoever.  I urge upon you to cultivate both these qualities.  Do not take yourself so seriously, and you will find that you will release yourself for freer and more potent work.  Take the Plan seriously, and the call to serve, but waste not time in constant self-analysis.

There are two things that every disciple must some day learn, my brother. One is to cultivate the ability to "sit light in the saddle" ( to use an old proverbial injunction ) and the other is to develop a sense of humour, a real ( not forced ) capacity to laugh "at oneself "and "with" the world.  This is one of the compensations which comes to those who can succeed in working in the light upon the mental plane.    The Tibetan Master D.K.

The Spirit of Masonry

By Foster Bailey

ISBN 0-85330-135-2, Paperback, 152 pages $12.00 plus shipping

Published by Lucis Publishing Company, New York

The Spirit of Masonry, provides an esoteric view of Freemasonry as part of the eternal spiritual "Quest" - the key to both individual and group progress toward God’s goal for man. The Tibetan Master described Masonry as one of three paths leading to initiation.

"The three main channels through which the preparation for the new age is going on might be regarded as the Church, the Masonic Fraternity and the educational field.…The Masonic Movement when it can be divorced from politics and social ends and from its present paralysing condition of inertia, will meet the need of those who can and should, wield power. It is the custodian of the law; it is the home of the Mysteries and the seat of initiation. It holds in its symbolism the ritual of Deity, and the way of salvation is pictorially preserved in its work. The methods of Deity are demonstrated in its Temples, and under the All-seeing eye the work can go forward. It is a far more occult organisation than can be realised, and is intended to be the training school for the coming advanced occultists."

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...
