Good to see you posting Ren -- about time.
I agree that the present situation corresponds very closely to that of the civil war. As I said recently, I believe we are having a civil war on the astral level, but this time it engulfs Western Civilization rather than just the United States.
Ruth W states:
"Also, I do not believe the period on the other side, before rebirth is as short as JJ thinks, except in the case of early childhood death."
Actually, this is not what I think. I believe I recently have written that the average period is around 5-600 years. There are two groups that experience short periods between incarnation.
First those with a low vibration attached to the material world. Murders are included in this and often come back quickly. However, when the vibration of the entire planet is sufficiently raised these individuals will have much longer periods between lives.
Secondly, disciples who have paid off most of the negative karma and have the ability to choose their time. They often bypass the heavenly bliss that is available and come right back into incarnation so they can continue a service.
Quoting DK [Djwhal Khul through Alice A. Bailey], Mindy first writes:
"I would remind you that the release of atomic energy has had a far more potent effect in the etheric web than in the dense physical vehicle of the planet. Three times the atomic bomb was used, and that fact is itself significant. It was used twice in Japan, thereby disrupting the etheric web in what you erroneously call the Far East; it was used once in what is also universally called the Far West, and each time a great area of disruption was formed which will have future potent, and at present unsuspected, results."
(Discipleship In The New Age, Vol 2, pg 61, by Alice A. Bailey)
Mindy then continues with:
"When DK says 'unsuspected' it leaves me considering lots of things. Any idea of what these future potent and unsuspected results may be? Why is 'three' significant in this case?"
Some students read this and think that these unsuspected results are going to be something bad. But if this would be the case with three small bombs then what about the results of dozens of bombs much larger than the original releasing hundreds of time more radiation than was the case when DK wrote this? Logically, it would seem that if this unexpected result were negative and far reaching then we would now be in the midst of a cataclysm and such is not the case.
One of the reasons we read this and wonder where the unexpected results are is that much of what was unexpected in DK's time is known today and doesn't seem unexpected.
This unexpected result plays out in the negative and positive. On the negative side is the effect of radiation on the etheric double of the physical which thus effects the dense physical with deterioration, disease, mutations, etc. Many studies of those effected at Hiroshima and Nagasaki revealed many "unexpected" findings of intense radiation on physical well being.
There are unexpected results on the positive side yet to be discovered. There are some rough studies that indicate that the slight increases in radiation throughout the world may actually produce numerous positive effects, but it is presently politically incorrect to follow this line of research as political correctness decrees that anything connected with atomic energy is evil.
When we rise above our primitive thinking the world will eventually become aware that atomic radiation is like a medicine. Too much can make you sick or kill, but just enough can stimulate and heal. Most present environmentalist categorically state that any increase in radiation, even a minuscule amount is to be deplored and attacked at all costs.
In addition DK said this:
"My problem has been to choose which of the myriad interlocking triangular relationships I would take up with you and thus present this science in such a manner that it would prove of real interest. The inner web of light which is called the etheric body of the planet is essentially a web of triangles and when the evolutionary process is completed, it will have been organised. At present a pattern of squares is the major construction of the web but this is slowly changing as the divine plan works out. The etheric webs of the sacred planets are largely triangles whilst that of the Sun is that of interlaced circles. The effort on Earth today (as seen by the planetary Logos) is to bring about a transformation of the web of the planet and thus slowly change the existing squares into triangles. This is done by the creation of division, by the application of the Law of Separation, but also by the recognition, in consciousness, of duality, the application of directed motion and the appearance of two triangles in the place of one square. When this has taken place, the perceiving consciousness recognises identity and the rule of the square is ended. These words were once spoken to me by an ancient seer who bisected the square esoterically, thus forming two triangles and united them in a fresh manifestation to form a Star of Life. Ponder on this.
"It is for this reason that the astrologers of the future will emphasize the relation and the interrelation of triangles. The new astrologer will, as I have hinted before, lay the emphasis upon:
"1. The Science of Triangles, as the result of the growth of the initiate understanding."
(Esoteric Astrology, page 480, by Alice A. Bailey)
Glenys was on to something when she suspected the square patterns in the etheric web will be assisted in changing to triangles through atomic energy. The hint is given above when DK says: "This is done by the creation of division [...] the application of directed motion and the appearance of two triangles in the place of one square."
What happens in an atomic explosion? Again we have "the creation of division" -- the appearance of two atoms in the place of one original atom.
Note the sublime correspondence here.
DK said that the splitting of the atom was an initiation for matter itself indicating a leap in evolution. He also said that the leap in the evolution of the etheric web will be the spitting of the square into two triangles of living substance.
All we need do now is to add two and two and realize that the initiation of matter through the splitting of the atom will indeed stimulate the evolution of the etheric web.
The full results of this will take over a thousand years to see, but we have already witnessed much by the tremendous changes we have seen in every department of life through the geometric progression of knowledge since 1945. The splitting of the square into triangles has allowed more light to permeate our consciousness. It is also interesting to note that DK started triangular relationships among disciples shortly before the splitting of the atom.
