Question: Could you clarify the place and focus of the dark brothers in the various planes of existence?
The Dark Brothers are only able to operate within the worlds of form because they are trapped in form. They are trapped in form because they do not believe in or value life as it may exist in the higher worlds. Advanced beings whose consciousness is above the mental do not focus on the opposition the Dark Brothers can give, but their work in the worlds of form can be delayed because of the opposition that occurs there. Their work and plans from the higher levels of consciousness is not affected by the dark ones because this vibration is beyond their reach.
It is taught by some that when we rise to planes above the mental that there are no more dualities. This is true as far as the common idea of good and evil is concerned as you do not have the struggle of one against the other. Even so, there is still a duality, and seeds of duality, but it just doesn’t work out as the struggling opposition as it does in our plane.
Whenever any life, however great, descends to work in the worlds of form there will be opposition to that work. Much of the purpose of the Ancient of Days is thoughtlessly resisted by lives from the savage to the advanced thinker of humanity to even at times by greater lives.
DK says this: “Again, in the council chamber of the Most High, there has not always been peace and understanding, but at times, war and disruption; this is made abundantly clear by several of the stories in the Old Testament. Symbolically speaking, some of the sons of God fell from their high estate, led, at one time, by “Lucifer, Son of the Morning”. This “fall of the angels” was a tremendous event in the history of our planet, but was nevertheless only a passing and interesting phenomenon in the history of the solar system, and a trifling incident in the affairs of the seven constellations, of which our solar system is but one.” Esoteric Psychology, Vol 1 pages 394-5
This tells us that the direct opposition to the Ancient of Days comes from those close to him more than from the Dark Brotherhood.
DK tells us that one of the purposes of the Brotherhood of Light is to rise that which is evil to a higher level so the new evil is not as bad as the old evil. This tells us that the opposition that the advanced entities face may even seem good to us.
To give an example of how this principle plays out in the life of humanity one could say that in the days of old it was considered evil to mistreat a slave. Now it is considered evil to have a slave.
The Dark Brothers thus cause problems for all lives who are attempting to move evolution forward in the world of form, but in the higher worlds they have no power.
DK gives this interesting piece of information concerning them:
“The black brother carries the evolution of the senses on to a stage inconceivable to man now and this sixth mahatic sense is of vaster extent and service to them than it ever is to the white Adept. Therefore, it will be apparent that for a long cycle of time, the black magician can persist and develop his powers because one-third of the force of the egoic lotus is his and he knows well how to utilise it to the best advantage. He builds also an antaskarana, but of quality and objective different to that of the student of the white magic. It is called ‘the path of manasic evil,’ and bridges a gap between the mental unit of the magician concerned, and certain correspondences on mental levels in the vehicles of the devas of that plane. Through this medium, and through identification with the devas, he can escape from the three worlds to spheres of evil incomprehensible to us. The point to be remembered here is that the black magician remains ever a prisoner; he cannot escape from substance and from form. There is no need to enlarge further on this subject.” Treatise on Cosmic Fire, Pg 1126
Exactly where these advanced Dark Brothers escape to is not made clear, but as I have written in my books it works a little like a pyramid scheme where a few successfully vampirize the energy of the many to continue their lives.
The serpent races and the Dark Brothers are two different things. Serpents are merely a stage of evolution within the universe and this stage is good as the various lives pass through it and learn therefrom. It only becomes evil when we have learned the lessons from that stage and then refuse to move on. A Dark Brother may have the body of a serpent or a human being. It is his focus that makes him dark rather than his form. The same goes for a Brother of Light.
The human race needs to use our current bodies in order to progress according to the plan. If we had to regress to the bodies of serpents or of a more animal nature our spiritual focus would be hindered.
The current experiments of scientists pose a danger to us as they are combining human and animal DNA. Their motive is supposedly to create healing benefits for humanity, but as this progresses someone will not be able to resist creating a being that is half human and half animal. This could lead to great problems for the poor entities who have to inhabit such bodies if allowed to continue.
When the gods wish to punish us, they answer our prayers. Oscar Wilde (1854 – 1900)
