The Body of the Cosmic Logos, Part 4

The Body of the Cosmic Logos, Part 4
The Centers of the Centers

In addition to there being seven centers in the planet itself, each of those have seven centers. For instance, we have discussed the seven centers of the fourth kingdom, humanity, which are represented as seven cities with two yet to materialize as we reach a higher stage of evolution.

Let us see what we can discover about the centers of these kingdoms.

Concerning the mineral, DK says very little but does give a hint:

“The mineral kingdom is responsive to that type of energy which is the lowest aspect of fire, of those internal furnaces which exert an influence upon the elements in the mineral world, and which resolve these atomic lives into a gradual series of ever-higher types of mineral energy. For instance, the type of energy which plays upon iron ore, or which produces tin, is emanated from a different centre in the body of the Entity informing the mineral kingdom to that which converts the elements into those wondrous jewels, the diamond, the sapphire, the emerald or the ruby. Treatise on Cosmic Fire, Page 1071

So here we are told that there is a great entity who informs the mineral kingdom of this planet, and apparently the heavy metals like tin and iron form a center as well as one that informs the jewels, which would probably include crystals. He doesn’t say which center these belong to, so let us put forth our best estimate.

The base of the spine is the foundation of life, so that may be the center of the planet. The sacral center creates living forms, so that would be outer part of the planet including the top soil or the top layer of the planet from which living things grow. The solar plexus would be the oceans, for water is a symbol of emotion. The heart would include all elements that are not metallic or gaseous. The throat would be the metals – the source of many creative forms by humans. The ajna center equates to precious jewels and crystals, and finally, the crown center would be the atmosphere and all other gasses. The atmosphere is above the physical earth as is the crown center above the physical body.

Note that we are including the atmosphere and oceans in with the mineral kingdom as being inorganic. They would therefore belong to the first kingdom, the mineral, rather than the vegetable or another kingdom.

DK indicates that the various centers are not set in stone, but may vary according to consciousness and perspective.

For instance, we could arrange this kingdom into the seven groups of elements in the periodic table, each having a different number of electron shells.

Concerning the divisions of the kingdoms DK says this:

“It will be clear that each of the kingdoms—elemental, mineral, vegetable, and animal as well as the human—is divided into seven primary types or rays.” Esoteric Psychology, Vol 1, Page 164

He doesn’t list these divisions for the vegetable and animal, but does make this statement on a part of the vegetable kingdom:

Ray II is the beneficent influence, expressing itself through the cereals and flowers.

Ray IV is the life quality, expressing itself through the grasses and the smaller forms of vegetable life,— those which provide the “green carpet whereon the angels dance”. Psychology, Vol 1, Page 239

The student can only guess at other divisions. Trees would be a definite one of the seven major divisions.

Again, with the animal kingdom, he does not list the centers or divisions, but does give us some information:

“…for instance, the rapport being established between humanity and the domesticated animals. These animals are to their own kingdom what the New Group of World Servers is to humanity.” Telepathy and the Etheric Vehicle, Page 68

Earlier we learned that the New Group of World Servers represented an aspect of the ajna center of the planet, so we have an indication here that domestic animals as a whole represent that center within their own kingdom.

In addition, he does give some specific rays in connection to animals:

“Elephants are upon the first ray; dogs are expressions of the second ray; the cat is a third ray life manifestation, and the horse is sixth ray.” Esoteric Psychology, Vol 1, Page 260

This would indicate the elephants are linked to the head center of the animal kingdom (First Ray), dogs; the heart (Second Ray), Cats – the throat (Third Ray), and horses – the solar plexus (Sixth Ray). A number of interesting divisions can be made when all life associated with this kingdom are considered, such as the fish, insects and other animals not mentioned.

We have covered the seven human centers, noting five current cities and two centers to later appear, but in addition, the number seven repeats numerous times with us. For instance, the Ancient Wisdom teaches that during our evolution here there will be a total of seven root races. We are in the fifth now with two more to come. In addition, there are the seven continents which are: Asia, Africa, Europe, North America, South America, Australia and Antarctica. Then we have the seven seas, which are the Arctic Ocean, the North Atlantic Ocean, the South Atlantic Ocean, the Indian Ocean, the North Pacific Ocean, the South Pacific Ocean and the Southern (or Antarctic) Ocean.

Then, among humanity itself, there are seven divisions according to ray type. Each person is dominated by one ray above the others.

Those on Ray One gravitate to politics and positions of power and leadership.

Ray Two people have a strong desire to share and serve and are often in some type of teaching position.

Ray Three people are practical, good thinkers and are often found in business, manufacturing, sports and in creating organizations.

Those seeking creativity, harmony and unity are often on the fourth ray.

Scientists and logical concrete thinkers are influenced by the fifth ray.

The sixth ray has dominated for the past two thousand years during the age of Pisces which is now passing. Idealists, devotees and religious people are found on this ray.

The seventh ray is called the Ray of Ceremonial Law, Magic or Order. Those who are attracted to law and order, efficient business practices and ceremony, such as the Masons, are under this ray.

There is no single physical location for those on the different rays, as the divisions have more to do with energy than location.

The fifth kingdom representing Ray Two and the heart center of the planet is usually referred to as the Spiritual Hierarchy. These are those who have passed beyond the regular human stage in consciousness and have mastered human problems and are often called Masters of Wisdom. Djwhal Khul relates to us how these great lives are organized according to the seven rays. He thus gives out the positions of the Christ and Twelve Masters.

Under Christ, also on Ray Two, is a European Master, Koot Hoomi, and Djwhal Khul, the master who communicated with Alice A. Bailey.

The master heading up Ray One is called Vaivasvata Manu. Under him on this ray is the Master Jupiter and Morya.

The title for the head of Ray Three is called the Mahachohan or the Lord of Civilization. This is currently headed by the Master Rakoczi, formerly known as Saint Germain.

Under him is a Venetian Master, also on Ray Three.

On Ray Four is The Master Serapis and Ray Five is Hilarion, also known earlier as Paul of Tarsus. Ray Six is Jesus, who was the one who received the Christ at baptism. Ray Seven was presided over by Rakoczi but he moved up in position to head Ray Three, the Lord of Civilization. His replacement has not been identified.

The lower part of the ajna center of the planet are the New Group of World Servers in their seven divisions according to ray type previously mentioned.

The seventh center is Shamballa presided over by the Planetary Logos, the Ancient of Days – Sanat Kumara. The seven centers concerning this are represented by the seven Kumaras at the head. H.P. Blavatsky gave out the names as follows:

“The Exoteric four are: Sanat-Kumara, Sananda, Sanaka, and Sanatana; and the esoteric three are: Sana, Kapila, and Sanat-sujata.” Secret Doctrine Vol 1, Page 457

DK further clarifies:

“It has been said that in the head of every man are seven centres of force, which are linked to the other centres in the body, and through which the force of the Ego is spread and circulated, thus working out the plan. Sanat Kumara, with the six other Kumaras, hold a similar position. These central seven are as the seven head centres to the body corporate. They are the directing agents and the transmitters of the energy, force, purpose, and will of the Planetary Logos on His own plane.” Initiation Human and Solar, Page 30

The Body of the Cosmic Logos, Part 3

The Body of the Cosmic Logos, Part 3
The Seven Kingdoms

Next, for the planet as a whole, we have a further correspondence to the seven human centers or chakras. These are the seven kingdoms here on the planet, of which the obvious four are the mineral, vegetable, animal and human. Seeking exact correspondences that apply in all circumstances is impossible as they shift somewhat according to the evolution of the seeker, humanity and the viewpoint taken by the observer. In speaking of the relationship of the kingdoms to the centers, DK says this:

“These relationships prove each other but only when seen in relation to the greater cycle. Humanity was at one time the correspondence to the planetary solar plexus and some day will shift the focus of its receptivity to the planetary heart centre; when this takes place, the Hierarchy will shift its focus of receptivity into the sphere of influence of Shamballa.” Esoteric Astrology, Pages 454-455

So then, the human kingdom, which is usually related to the throat center, was once related to the solar plexus, and, as it progresses, it will become the heart center.

What is consistent is that there will always be seven higher centers which correspond to the seven lower, though their relation to each other may shift for a number of reasons. For instance, he tells us that they will be viewed differently when “expansions of consciousness” occur. (Esoteric Psychology, Vol 1, Page 221)

That said, let us look at our centers and see how they relate to the centers of the planet, or the planetary logos.

Center one, the Base of the Spine – The Mineral.

The mineral kingdom corresponds to the adrenals and rays 7 and 1. This is usually associated with the base of the spine as DK notes in Esoteric Psychology, Vol 1, Page 221. He notes that this is true when looking at “the seven kingdoms as a whole…” which would be from the view of the Logos. However a page earlier he makes different links when related to the human angle, and relates the mineral center to the sacral as well as the base center. Apparently, the different kingdoms can play different roles depending on whether we are looking at them through the viewpoint of humanity, the Hierarchy or Shamballa.

He also associates the mineral center with the spleen, which adds additional complexity. (Treatise on Cosmic Fire, Page 1071)

Students can see why he associates it with the spleen, for he says this center governs “the current of physical vitality or life” of the body relating it to the base of the spine, which is the foundation of the life force.

Although he associates the mineral kingdom in different circumstances with both the sacral and base centers he tells us that this is oddly shared by “the Forces of Materialism.

“The mineral kingdom and the Forces of Materialism do not really coincide today, for the one works through the sacral centre at this time, and the other through the centre at the base of the spine.” Externalization of the Hierarchy, Page 92

The second main kingdom is the vegetable. It would be natural to assume that since this is the second kingdom it would be most closely linked to the second center, the sacral governing sex, but DK does not make this link. One reason would be that reproduction in the vegetable kingdom does not require the division of the sexes as in the animal and human.

The lowest center linked to the vegetable is the third center up – the solar plexus and the sixth ray. (Esoteric Astrology, Page 456; Treatise on Cosmic Fire, Pg 1071)

This makes sense, as this center is associated with our emotions and idealism. The emotions are indeed stirred by beautiful flowers, ancient trees and many other wonders of that kingdom which have reached an idealistic perfection in evolution.

Next, DK associates this center with the heart and Ray Two of Love Wisdom. (Esoteric Psychology, Vol 1, Page 221) This ray is associated with magnetism, and the vegetable kingdom does indeed draw us with magnetic force created by its beauty, perfumes and source of food.

Finally, he associates this center with the throat center and the lungs. (A Treatise on White Magic, Pg 360 and Esoteric Psychology, Vol 1, Page 220) He does not explain why, but perhaps it is because the throat is associated with creation, and the vegetable kingdom highlights creation from Divine Intelligence.

In addition, he makes an unusual association of the vegetable kingdom with the fourth ray, but qualifies it saying that this ray is identified with the great being who ensouls that kingdom. (Esoteric Psychology, Vol 1, Page 120) The fourth ray is linked to the ajna and the base centers so in some circumstances there must be a link to one or both of these.

The third kingdom on the planet is the animal, and it is usually associated with the corresponding third center – the solar plexus. (See Externalization of the Hierarchy, Page 92; also Esoteric Psychology, Vol 1, Pages 220-221, 413)

Concerning this he says, “The animal uses the solar plexus in the same way that a man uses the brain.” (Treatise on Cosmic Fire, Page 287) Then he tells us that this sixth ray connection through the solar plexus especially applies to domestic animals, and causes them to have such a strong devotion to their masters unlike the wild animals. (Esoteric Psychology, Vol 1, Page 218)

In that same reference he indicates that the other animals lean strongly on the third ray connected with the throat center. He makes two specific references equating the animal kingdom with the throat center because of their instinct, especially of the wild animals. (See Esoteric Astrology, Page 455 and Treatise on Cosmic Fire, Pg 1071)

He adds further complication by relating the animal kingdom to the heart: “Man, the brain of nature; the animals, the expression of the heart.” Indeed, if we look at it from the perspective of humanity being the brain, then the heart makes sense for the animals.

Finally, he adds more complexity to the animal kingdom by linking it to the fifth ray (Esoteric Psychology, Vol 1, Page 162) but doesn’t give any explanation as to why he does so. Perhaps it is because the fifth ray is an attribute of the third ray linked to animal instinct. The fifth ray is linked to the ajna and sacral centers, indicating they may also have a link to the animal kingdom.

Finally, we come to the last visible center that is universally acknowledged to exist, which is the fourth kingdom of nature – us – humanity.

The human kingdom is generally recognized as being the throat center of the planet, which is usually governed by the Third Ray of Active Intelligence. Here is just one quote: “The great centre which we call Humanity is predominantly governed by the third Ray of Active Intelligence. This ray energy arrives at the throat centre via the head and the heart centres.” Telepathy and the Etheric Vehicle, Page 135

He repeats this link of humanity to the throat center and third ray a number of places, such as Esoteric Healing, Page 148, Destiny of the Nations, Page 23, Externalisation of the Hierarchy, Page 107 and Rays and Initiations, page 551.

He has repeated this enough that many students always link humanity with the throat center and ray three, but again the association is not black and white in all circumstances, as he links humanity to other centers and rays depending on the relationship involved.

We can see though why the throat center and third ray is the most common linkage, for the throat governs creativity and the third ray represents the adaptability of matter through the application of intelligence. Humanity is indeed the strongest creative material force on the planet who alters and manipulates substance to its desire through intelligent effort. Some think we are doing more harm than good, but DK assures us that humanity will learn its lessons and become a benevolent force in the end. He calls us “The Centre where the intelligence of God is producing the evolutionary process.” Telepathy and the Etheric Vehicle, Page 159

When linking humanity with the throat center he usually associates them with the third ray, but in one instance he links us with the fourth ray because of our “quality of acquisitiveness” and “conflict” that manifests through us. (Externalization of the Hierarchy, Page 92)

Then, in other points of reference, he links humanity to the ajna center while placing the animal kingdom in the throat. (see Esoteric Astrology, Pages 452- 455) Here he links them with the fifth ray instead of the third, which makes sense because the third ray is sometimes linked to this center between the eyebrows. We’ll talk more about this link when we discuss the sixth kingdom.

Again, DK throws in more complexity by associating the human kingdom with the heart center (Treatise on Cosmic Fire, Pg 1071), but this seems to be when relating us to only the lower three kingdoms.

Then he somewhat surprisingly links us with the sacral center (Esoteric Psychology, Vol 1, Page 221), but even this makes sense when you consider the sacral governs physical creation, and humanity is definitely creating many new physical forms. The sacral is also closely linked to the throat, but creates at a lower level.

There are three planetary centers above humanity not generally recognized by orthodox thinking. The first of these is the Spiritual Hierarchy, normally referred to as the Fifth Kingdom, a step above humanity, the fourth.

DK consistently refers to this kingdom as the heart center of the planet ruled by Ray Two of Love Wisdom.. The dominance of Ray Two makes this center one of great importance as this ray sets the tone for the whole solar system and the goal of our spiritual evolution during this system of creation.

He makes one exception, though, and tells us that from the view of one approaching the first initiation, the fifth kingdom, or the Hierarchy, should be seen as the throat center instead of the heart, with the human seen as the sacral and the animal related to the heart center. (Esoteric Psychology, Vol 1, Page 221)

He gives no further explanation for this unusual relationship but leaves it up to disciples to discern.

We’ll save the mysterious sixth kingdom for last and go major seventh corresponding to the crown center at the top of the head. This center has been given the name Shamballa. Even though the name can be traced back to the ancient Sanskrit, it is probably not the one used by its inhabitants.

As for its physical location, legend has it that Shamballa exists somewhere between the Himalaya Mountains and the Gobi Desert. DK doesn’t give an exact location, but does say “the location of Shamballa will be one of the latest etheric sacred spots to be revealed as it exists in the matter of the second ether.”      Initiation Human and Solar, Page 33

He also tells us that in relation to present humanity it is more of a state of consciousness than a physical location, though in the reference above he does hint at an actual location in time and space.

The head of Shamballa is the Lord of the World, Sanat Kumara, called in the Bible The Ancient of Days, also after the order of Melchizedek. Concerning him, DK says: “Sanat Kumara and His Pupils are in physical form, but have not taken dense physical bodies. They work on the vital etheric levels, and dwell in etheric bodies. Shamballa, where They dwell, exists in physical matter as do the Kumaras, but it is matter of the higher ethers of the physical plane, and only when man has developed etheric vision will the mystery lying beyond the Himalayas be revealed.” Treatise on Cosmic Fire, Page 753

The dominate center that is associated with Shamballa is the crown center along with Ray One of Will-Power-Purpose, though he also loosely links it to the heart and Ray Two (Initiation Human and Solar, Page 130) as well as the Base of the Spine and most probably Ray Seven. (Rays and Initiations, Page 367)

Shamballa receives from the Solar Logos who receives from extra planetary sources, and thus does divine intelligence flow down from on high to Shamballa to the Hierarchy and finally to humanity.

The sixth planetary center is somewhat mysterious, for when DK does list the centers he either leaves this center out or does not clearly identify it. Fortunately, he has identified it in the written text.

Before we examine the planetary correspondence, let us take a look at that to which it must correspond. DK says this:

“There is a downflow of energy from the ajna centre to the heart from the soul, just in so far as the aspirant is in touch with his soul. This leads to … The evocation of the heart centre in the head.” Esoteric Healing, Page 169

“The Ajna Centre (the centre between the eyebrows) works in connection with the three major centres but mainly, at this stage of human development, as the distributor of soul force and of spiritual energy as received from the heart and throat centres.” Telepathy and the Etheric Vehicle, Page 191

An active interplay, once established between the ajna centre and the throat centre, produces a creative life and a manifested expression of the divine idea on the part of the initiate. Esoteric Healing, Page 147

We can take from this then that the ajna center acts as a bridge, or channel, for the energy flow between the three major centers, the heart, the throat and the crown.

Using the Law of Correspondences we can assume that the ajna center for the planet would do something similar.

It is interesting that the ajna center for the planet involves an assortment of entities. DK writes about those representing the lowest level.

“The pioneers of the human family, the scientists, thinkers and artists constitute the pituitary body.” A Treatise on White Magic, Page 277

The pituitary gland is the most material manifestation of the ajna center and corresponds to the advanced thinkers of humanity. These thinkers contemplate and pick up impressions and ideas from the Hierarchy or the soul (heart center), and transmit them to humanity – the planetary throat center.

A step above the thinkers are disciples of the world dedicated to bringing additional light and spiritual power to humanity.

Whereas the thinkers are identified with the material externalization of this center, this group is directly connected to the ajna center of the planet:

The ajna centre of the Lord of the World is just beginning to express itself in a recognisable manner through the New Group of World Servers. This intermediate group—between the Hierarchy and Humanity—is a carrier of the energy which makes the Plan possible (the Plan of which the Hierarchy is the custodian). This Plan implements the Purpose, and later, when the New Group of World Servers is organised and is recognised as a living organism, it will definitely receive energy from Shamballa in a direct reception, via the Hierarchy. Rays and Initiations, Page 368

Here we are told quite plainly that The New Group of World Servers correspond to the ajna center. These are dedicated spiritual teachers and servants who catch a glimpse of the plan as transmitted by the Hierarchy and play a part in implementing it. Therefore, this group and the thinkers pick up impressions from the planetary heart center (the Hierarchy) and transmit it to the throat (humanity).

The correspondence does not end here as there are higher levels of beings who function as transmitters of spiritual energy and intelligence between kingdoms.

The next higher level are called the Nirmanakayas. These are advanced spiritual entities, such as the Buddha, who have achieved at least the sixth initiation and whose consciousness extends beyond the Hierarchy (the heart center) into Shamballa (the head center). Just as advanced humans bring spiritual intelligence from a higher level to humanity, these Nirmanakayas bring down power and intelligence from the head to the heart, or Shamballa to the Hierarchy. Concerning them DK says;

“…the Agents of the Plan are impressed from Shamballa, via the Nirmanakayas; the process is then repeated, and advanced humanity become the recipients, the sensitive recipients, of the Plan as transmitted to them by the impressing Agents, the Masters, working through the New Group of World Servers. This group is the lower correspondence of the Nirmanakayas, the recipients of impression from Shamballa.” Telepathy and the Etheric Vehicle, Pages 121-122

So we are told here that the New Group of World Servers and the Nirmanakayas fit in with the Law of Correspondences and provide the same type of service, but on different levels.

Then there is one more even higher group linked to the function of the ajna center for the planet. DK alludes to them here:

“These Servers (New Group of World Servers) are to humanity what the Buddhas of Activity are to Shamballa, and the group of divine Contemplatives (the Nirmanakayas) are to the Hierarchy. ” Telepathy and the Etheric Vehicle, Page 45

Here he places three groups as performing similar functions but on different levels. They are the New Group of World Servers, the Nirmanakayas and the Buddhas of Activity.

These Buddhas are three very advanced entities who counsel the Planetary Logos. Just as the New Group of World Servers and the Nirmanakayas transmit intelligence between kingdoms on this planet, the Buddhas of Activity do the same thing, but between solar systems.

We thus conclude that the ajna center of the planet is composed of four groups: (1) advanced thinkers (2) the New Group of World Servers, (3) the Nirmanakayas and (4) the Buddhas of Activity.

The Body of the Cosmic Logos, Part 2

The Body of the Cosmic Logos, Part 2
The Greater Lives

We have thus briefly covered the seven major centers and their accompanying rays for the human body. Now there are many other lesser centers, but these are the major ones taught in the Ancient Wisdom. DK does not talk about how they play out in the microcosmic lives but does correspond them to greater lives than the individual human.

These greater lives include groups, nations, humanity as a whole, the planet, other planets, the solar system and, last of all, the Cosmic Logos, or The One About Whom Naught May Be Said, which consists of at least seven solar systems. Beyond this great life little is said by DK. Unlike many others, he doesn’t speak of a galactic or Universal Logos, for understanding the Cosmic Logos seems to be more than we can handle in our present state of consciousness.

Concerning the centers of nations DK says this:

“Nations, for instance, have seven centres, as have all forms of existence from the human and animal upwards, and it is an interesting study to discover these centres and note the type of energy which flows through them. In connection with the United States of America, Chicago is the solar plexus centre, whilst New York is the throat centre and Washington the head centre. The heart centre is Los Angeles. The heart centre of Germany is Munich, and its head centre is Nuremberg, whilst Berlin is the throat centre. London is, of course, the heart centre for Great Britain (and temporarily it is also the head centre, though this will not always be the case), whilst Ottawa is the throat centre and Sydney is the solar plexus centre of the British Empire.” Externalization of the Hierarchy, Page 85

The United States is an interesting country in which to analyze the centers. It is interesting that he gives us an incomplete list, which is:

Head – Washington DC
Throat – New York
Heart – Los Angeles
Solar Plexus- Chicago

Note that he leaves out the ajna, sacral and base centers.

In the day he wrote this. the sacral center surely would have been Detroit since it was the main center of physical creation – manufacturing most of the cars driven at that time. Now that has changed and the prime source of our most used products is the Silicon Valley region in the San Francisco and surrounding region. This includes many of our computer related products, solar panels and electric vehicles.

In DK’s day, the base of the spine would have most likely been Philadelphia, for there was laid the foundation of life for this country. That, however, may have changed to Seattle today, as focus has shifted away from nationalism to just living the abundant material life. Thanks to Microsoft the foundation was laid for our computerized world, and there we also have Amazon which has become the lifeblood of most every consumer product produced.

So, where would be the ajna center, the eye of spiritual vision? He did not name one because such a place does not yet exist, so he just lumped the head as a whole into one center at Washington DC. There are a number locations which would like the title of our spiritual light. Many think the Vatican or Jerusalem are good prospects for the planet as a whole, but few enlightened souls look in their direction for higher consciousness. In the United States, Salt Lake City is the only major city built and headquartered by a religion, but few outside the body of LDS true believers sense much inspiration coming from there.

As it is, Washington DC, imperfect as it is, represents both centers. This is evidenced by the all-seeing eye (representing the third eye – the ajna center) on the reverse of the Great Seal of the United States which is printed on our dollar bills.

The United States has attempted to shine greater light on freedom and democracy to the world, though with imperfect results. It is also the source of much of the world’s new ideas of spiritual thinking from new religions to many New Age movements.

Unfortunately, there is no separate city of lights where the ideals and inhabitants are enlightened enough to be a light unto the world. Such a place will manifest in the not-too-distant future and then we shall live in a world where there is an open third eye, a center to guide the world in the ways of Spirit, rather than the material side of life.

Concerning humanity as a whole, DK tells us there are five cities that represent active centers of power for humanity. The number is five because we are in the fifth rootrace. When the next race manifests, a center in Africa will develop and finally, when the seventh and final rootrace appears, a seventh center will be seen in Australia says DK.

Currently, the five centers with their personality and soul rays, plus their astrological signs are:

City – Soul – Personality – Sign

  1. London – 5th – 7th – Gemini.
  2. New York – 2nd – 3rd – Cancer.
  3. Tokyo – 6th – 4th – Cancer.
  4. Geneva – 1st – 2nd – Leo.
  5. Darjeeling – 2nd – 5th – Scorpio

Esoteric Astrology, Page 458

Concerning these, he says, “The five cities which are the exoteric expression of the esoteric centre of force and through which the Hierarchy and Shamballa are seeking to work are the correspondence in the planetary body to the four centres up the spine and the ajna centre in the body of humanity and of individual man.” Esoteric Astrology, Page 528

He doesn’t tell us which cities are with the specific five centers mentioned, but the rays given as well as their order listed will supply some hints.

The Body of the Cosmic Logos, Part 1

The Body of the Cosmic Logos, Part 1
Centers and Rays in the individual

NOTE: This is the first of a ten part series concerning a subject of great interest to Bailey students. This concerns the mysteries behind a great life who DK calls “The One About Whom Naught May Be Said”. I have tried to write about the complex with as much simplicity as possible so both casual and serious students will find it interesting.

***

The great teacher, Djwhal Khul (or just DK), tells us that there is a great being who is higher in consciousness and evolution than either our Planetary Logos or the Solar Logos. Its life permeates through at least seven solar systems of which ours is one.

Its consciousness is so advanced that it is beyond even the masters on earth to comprehend. They have thus given this high entity the unusual name of “The One About Whom Naught May be Said.” Sometimes this is shortened to “Cosmic Logos.” We are given to understand that silence concerning this being is not because of demanded reverence, but because Its consciousness is so beyond ours that any full understanding is mere guesswork. Think of a snail trying to understand the mind of Einstein and you get the picture.

The fact that this being is of such a high consciousness is interesting to contemplate when you consider that Its body of seven solar systems is just a drop in the bucket compared to the Milky Way Galaxy, as a whole, which has over 200 billion solar systems within its life. This would indicate that there are billions of other Cosmic Logoi just in our galaxy alone and if a galactic logos exists then it would be One About Whom Naught May be Said in relation to our Cosmic Logos.

Then it further stretches our imagination to consider that our telescopes have discovered billions of galaxies, each with billions of solar systems, with no end in sight. This tells us that in this living universe there are indeed higher lives that defy the imagination.

For this treatise we will focus on our Cosmic Logos, of which each of us form a small part. This is the highest life concerning which any information from the teachings in the Ancient Wisdom is available.

Yes, I know, there are many believers who think they know all about the One Great Life we call God who created all things, but quoting a scripture or two is no indication that one even understands the Logos of our planet, let alone the universe.

So let us examine what is available and see if we can expand our consciousness to envision lives greater than ourselves.

All lives within our ring-pass-not live in bodies created by the interplay of seven rays which we see represented in the seven colors of the rainbow as well as seven notes in the musical scale. These manifest through humans in the seven major centers called the chakras. These seven divisions not only appear in humans but all life forms from the atom to a great Logos. The advanced atoms such as radium and uranium have seven electron shells corresponding to the seven chakras which are all active in the advanced human.

The first chakra is at the base of the spine. This supplies the foundation energy for the other chakras and the life of the body as a whole.

All seven rays have some interplay on each of the chakras, but there will always be one in particular which will dominate for each center. The dominate one is not always the same for everyone, for in some chakras it will shift as the seeker climbs the ladder of spiritual evolution.

The overall dominate ray for the base chakra is Ray One, that of Will, Power and Purpose. DK tells us this applies to the average person as well as initiates. (Esoteric Astrology, Page 517) Then, in between average and advanced individuals others have their base dominated by rays four and seven. He tells us that the “average aspirant” has a dominate ray four (Esoteric Psychology Vol 1, Pg 261) and still others ray seven will dominate at the base. (Esoteric Psychology, Vol 2, Page 521)

The fact that three different rays dominate at the base of the spine in various individuals tells us that we cannot specifically assign one particular ray with that center whether it be human, planetary or cosmic.

The next center up the spine is the sacral, which governs sex and physical creation. This is also influenced by more than one ray. For the undeveloped person it is governed by Ray three. (Esoteric Healing, Page 152 & 178) This seems to switch to Ray Seven as the person evolves. (Esoteric Astrology, Page 517). Then in another reference to this center DK connects it to Ray Five (Esoteric Psychology, Vol 2, Page 521) with no explanation as to where it fits with spiritual evolution.

The third center up the spine is the solar plexus, which governs the lower emotions. This is generally ruled by Ray Six (Ray of Devotion) though he does note that it “registers that of the second aspect.” (Esoteric Healing, Page 178). So, Ray Two does have a part, most likely in one who is spiritually developed.

The fourth center is the heart. Now keep in mind that these centers are not in the physical body or on the actual spine, but in the etheric body behind the spine.

The heart center is pretty much centered on Ray Two – the Ray of Love Wisdom. DK gives no other ray that ever dominates.

He does say, though, that there is a reflection of the heart center within the head center, and that is polarized in Ray One, the Ray of Power. He doesn’t tell us whether the heart center in the head remains under the domination of Ray Two or acquiesces to Ray One, though I think we may safely assume it is influenced by both rays.

He does make this interesting statement concerning: …“the Buddha and the Christ, Who are both embodiments of the heart centre of the planetary Logos, for the Buddha represents the twelve-petalled lotus in the head, of which the Christ represents the counterpart, the twelve-petalled lotus of the heart centre.” Externalization of the Hierarchy, Page 86-87

In addition, he tells us that the Buddha represents the wisdom aspect of this second ray and the Christ the Love. (Discipleship in the New Age, Vol 2, Page 516) This would tell us then that the wisdom aspect dominates in the head and love in the heart, but both centers would represent the two aspects to some degree.

In addition, he says: “the second ray deals largely with the soul’s activity through all the centres (those above and those below the diaphragm) but with the heart as the prime centre of attention.” Esoteric Healing, Page 130

So because this entire solar system is dominated by the second ray its influence is extremely pervasive and has some influence on all the centers, but “the heart as the prime centre of attention.”

The fifth center up the spine is the throat, which is a higher correspondent to the sacral. Instead of stimulating physical creation through sex, this center directs inspired creation through art, music, writing and other creative endeavors. Normally, DK references the Third Ray in relation to it but adds this: “Though the human throat centre is primarily expressing the third ray, there is an interesting situation to be noted in this connection: two ray energies control this centre at this time.” Telepathy and the Etheric Vehicle, Page 136

In that text he indicates that other ray is the seventh and then adds this:

“The throat centre of the average integrated personality is governed by the third ray and is strongly energised by third ray energies (again seven in number), whilst the throat centre of the spiritual aspirant, of disciples and initiates below the third initiation is responding primarily to seventh ray influence, and this is peculiarly the case now as the seventh ray is in incarnation.” Telepathy and the Etheric Vehicle, Page 137

His overall writings indicate that, even though the seventh ray is strong in some disciples the third ray has a strong influence in everyone. In addition, the first ray comes into play with the initial stimulation of the throat center. He says:

“people who work creatively usually have first ray personalities at the time that the throat centre becomes dynamically active for the first time.” Discipleship in the New Age, Vol 2, Page 122

As we rise above the spine we come to the two head centers, the first of which is the center between the eyebrows, often called the third eye or the ajna center. This is a center of higher spiritual vision and understanding as well as a director of energy.

The most common ray associated with this is the Fifth Ray of Concrete Knowledge. (See Esoteric Astrology, Page 517 and Esoteric Psychology, Vol 1, Page 261) Then, for advanced disciples and initiates, it changes to Ray Three. (Esoteric Healing, Page 154) Then he also gives Ray Four as dominating, (Esoteric Psychology, Vol 2, Page 521) but does not indicate what would make this change.

Finally, we come to the highest center of the major seven at the top of the head, often called the crown. Of this he says, “ There are twelve major petals of white and gold, and 960 secondary petals are arranged around the central twelve.” Letters on Occult Meditation, pages 77-78 Also Treatise on Cosmic Fire, Page 168

Even though the crown is a few short it is often called the Thousand Petalled Lotus.

Though all rays and many energies move through this center the dominate one is consistently said to be Ray One – Will-Power-Purpose.

Even though each center is influenced by all seven rays, certain ones will dominate according to the spiritual advancement and the consciousness of the person. Let us then tabulate the centers and the rays most likely to dominate.

The Crown – Ray One
The Ajna – Normally Ray Five, but sometimes Three and Four
The Throat – Normally Ray Three, but in advanced souls Ray Seven is strong.
The Heart – Ray Two
The Solar Plexus – Ray Six, but influenced by Ray Two.
The Sacral Center – Rays Three, Five and Seven.
The Base of the Spine – Rays One, Four, and Seven.

There is much more that could be written about the centers and the rays, but the main intent here is to establish the links between them as we examine the body of the great logos of which we form a small part. The centers and rays of humanity have correspondences in greater and lesser lives, so by understanding ourselves, we can gain some understanding of the greater.

Karma, False Christs and More

Karma, False Christs and More

Question: “If we did have World War III and most of the humans were destroyed, does that mean this is karma for all these people and will they eventually come back in a new world born as cleansed souls?”

When we make mistakes we always have to come back and go through the learning process that karma teaches us until we achieve relative perfection. One of the best examples of this is the movie, “Groundhog Day”. What Bill Murray did in living that Groundhog Day over and over is an interesting correspondence to what we do with life. For him it was just a day but with us it’s an entire life. As you remember, Bill Murray lived that day over and over and over until he finally got it perfect. When he got it perfect then he was allowed to wake up and enter into the real world. That’s an interesting correspondence to the way reality is. We live our lives over and over and over until we achieve an amount of perfection that coming back won’t really help that much after that perfection is achieved. Then we can enter into a greater reality.

As far as more mass destructions go, more karma is at play here than just individual karma. Individual karma affects us within our own lives and within our own sphere but we as a unit are connected through our group life through our families, our nations, our groups, the whole planet and so on. The various groups and nations of which we are members of have their own karma. Even though we may be as innocent as the driven snow as an individual, we are subject to national karma, group karma, and the karma of the whole human race. There is even karma beyond that, the whole solar system and beyond. We are subject to these things just like one of the cells in your body may be performing its job fine but if you were to get into a car wreck you’re going to affect the productive cells as well as the non-productive cells. All the cells in your body will be affected. There are certain collective events that happen on the earth that will affect everyone and that’s due to what we call group karma. Group karma is where the whole group is affected and it’s different than individual karma.

As far as World War III goes, I certainly agee that Jesus is not coming to destroy, but to save. This is an extremely important point: The midpoint between the Piscean and the Aquarian Age was 1945, right at the end of World War II. So we’ve actually swung over the balance since 1945. We’ve just got our big toe into the Aquarian Age and its going to take another 150 years or so until we’re entirely in it but the point of tension was World War II. If we do our job correctly that will be the major point of tension. There will be other points of tension but that is like the point where the Aquarian Age is born. If we do our job, the doomsday of World War III where 90% of the population is destroyed doesn’t have to happen. It could happen if we let it and don’t do our part in making sure that terrorists are dominated and not allowed to wreak the havoc that they desire to do.

Question: Did Jesus take bad Karma with Him when He was crucified? Also, the Apostles? Did the victims of 9-11 take bad karma with them?

Actually on an individual basis, Jesus had worked off His karma and didn’t have any karma to take with Him. As I wrote the other day, He did this as an act of service, went through the crucifixion for a purpose other than paying off karma. On the other hand, the world itself had a heavy weight of karma at that age. When Jesus was in the Garden of Gethsemane He faced the dweller on the threshold for the entire planet, which you could say is the sum total of all negative karma. So when He struggled in the Garden and bled from his pores, as the scripture says, He struggled with the world karma and in that way took upon Himself the sins of the world in the sense that He swung the balance of the world karma. So, instead of the world karma engulfing us, it began to lessen from that point on. Simply put, Jesus initiated a new cause creating new effects.

As far as the Apostles go, most of them did have karma to pay off and they paid a lot of it off in service. When they taught the teachings of Christ, spread them and elevated hope in mankind; this was a means for them for paying off their negative karma from their past.

As far as the people from 9-11, some of them, quite a number of them, had significant karma that they paid off in the disaster. There were probably a handful of people who were just in the wrong place at the wrong time. Quite often, the disasters that we’re caught in are a means of us paying off karma and learning our lessons. Those who caused the disaster of 9-11 will, eventually come back and be reborn, and they will have some crazy suicide person interfere with their life and family in the way that they had done so that they can learn their lessons, unless, of course, they choose the path of service as the Apostles and other great people in history have done. Through service, remember, we can pay off karma. Service is a cause which alters the course of causes past.

Speaking of prophets true and false, I did mention that there are prophecies and predictions in the Bible that one could argue may not have come true. (For instance, the one that seems to indicate that Jesus would be married) A reader points out that maybe Jesus was married. We’ve talked about that possibility in the past. That’s the difference between a true prophet and a false prophet…With a true prophet, even his questionable prophecies, presents the possibility of a true interpretation. Whereas the false prophets will prophesize specific things like the world is going to end on July 10th or something like that. And July 10th comes and it doesn’t happen and they were just flat out wrong. There’s no interpretation involved.

One of my main points that I was trying to make about prophecy is that no prophet in recorded history that we know of has been 100% accurate in an iron clad way. Some make that claim but even then we look at their prophecies and it takes a little creative interpretation to put a positive swing on them. What few people pointed out is the difficulty in making accurate predictions is entered in because of free will. Because we have our free will, making 100% iron clad, specific predictions, naming dates and things like this is almost impossible in many instances. One way it can be done is if a Greater Life makes a decision that something is going to happen and then coordinates events and makes that thing happen. If this isn’t going on, making exact specific predictions is almost always doomed to failure. Every person I’ve ever seen, for instance that has read the Bible and made specific predictions from it, have always failed. I haven’t seen one guy get it right yet.

The other way to maker accurate predictions is through the study of the Law of Cycles which h is based on the idea that history and events repeat themselves with minor changes. Accurate general predictions can be made from this law, but exact dates are difficult to conjecture.

So, really the false prophets of our age are those who go around making all types of specific predictions, which turn out to be blatantly wrong, then they make more predictions and they’re wrong again. Then they say things have changed and that’s why they’re wrong, or people repented or whatever. So they keep going over and over and making them wrong time and time again. These people are making predictions which do not materialize, especially the prophets of doom. They make wrong predictions then they make more predictions and they’re wrong again. Sooner or later, their followers need to wake up and see their track record is not that great. If you see a person who is making two out of three predictions that are correct, then he is probably getting a certain degree of inspiration and understands the law of cycles and is doing the right thing. We might be able to call this type of person a true prophet. A still better definition is that a true prophet is one who has soul contact and speaks from that context.

Question: What happened to Jesus between the ages of 12 and 30?

I believe this is fairly accurately represented in the Aquarian Gospel by Levi. You can download that free from the web. Just do a search on Google.

Question: “What happened to Jesus after the resurrection? The reader points out that there are different accounts of the post-resurrection years of Jesus. Some have Him settling down in Kashmir, His tomb is said to be there. Then again, others say he settled down in Japan and His tomb is said to be there. Both can’t be right, can they? Then there are accounts of Him being on the American hemisphere, like the Book of Mormon, for instance. I don’t have a full knowledge of what happened to Him after the resurrection except Jesus was the one who took the resurrected body. It was His body to begin with so He was the one who occupied it. During that three year period, when the Holy Ghost descended upon Him, the Christ came into Him and the two entities, Jesus and the Christ, shared the body for three years. After the resurrection they separated and Jesus occupied the body. The Christ has the capacity to manifest a body at will.”

What happened to Jesus in the resurrected body is somewhat of a mystery and I’ve been told that we don’t have the whole story. DK happened to say that He eventually became The Apollonius of Tyana, which is somewhat of a mystery because Apollonius was born 0 BC, the same period that Jesus was supposed to have been born. There are some followers of Apollonius that tell you that Apollonius was actually Jesus. So we have a lot of interesting legends on Jesus after the resurrection. As I get any further light on this I’ll be happy to share it with you.

So we pretty much covered the prediction that Christ made about the false prophets. He also predicted that there would be false Christs, that many would come in His name, saying “I am Christ” and deceives many. Who are these individuals that are the false Christs? Do we see a lot of people out there claiming to be Christ? Not that many. There’s an oddball now and then that thinks He’s the second coming but there aren’t that many. He points out in His prophecy that there will be many. Now, how has this been fulfilled?

First we must ask the question who is there out there who claims to be Christ? Well, we see a lot of people telling us that the Christ is within them and that they are Christ as much as anyone else. There’s another teaching out there which is quite interesting. Many people have the idea that the entity who is Christ won’t come again – that His coming is merely through us recognizing Christ is within. When we recognize that Christ is within, this is the second coming of Christ. This teaching is actually the teaching of the false coming of Christ. People coming in the name of Christ saying, this is the coming of Christ, they shall deceive many. They’re saying the entity that was Christ will not come. This is actually the fulfilling of the prophecy Jesus made.

There is an interesting scripture on this in First John, Chapter 4, beginning with verse 3.

“And every spirit that confesses not that Jesus Christ will come in the flesh is not of God. And this is the spirit of the Anti-Christ wherefore you heard that it should come and even now it already is in the world.”

Now the regular born-again Christian says, “see, you have to confess that Jesus is the Christ or you are the Anti-Christ.” But when you read this in Greek, you get a different twist on it. In the Greek it says this, “And every spirit that confesses not that Jesus Christ is comING in the flesh.” In most Bibles it translates it as ‘has come’ or ‘is come in the flesh”.

When we translate the phrase accurately we to “Jesus Christ is comING in the flesh (meaning a future return of the actual entity) we can read the predictions of the Christ with a real expectation of a visitation from the Master. Those who deny this possibility have the spirit of Anti-Christ and are teaching of a false Christ and incomplete or false return.

So the Anti-Christ teaching, in other words anti or against Christ teaching, is against the idea that the entity who is Christ will actually come in a body, in the flesh and teach again among mankind. He may do this a number of different ways. Either in a body of His own on in a divine possession the way He did last time through Jesus. But He will definitely come. The false Christs or those that deny this possibility will say this coming of Christ is a nebulous awareness of Christ consciousness or the Christ within.

They’re using a true principle to distort things because there is a Christ within and we must find that within ourselves so that we can manifest Christ the same way Jesus did. But one thing that is overlooked is that there is an entity that occupies the position of the Christ. That Entity was the one that taught, in ancient Israel and was crucified. So that person, as an entity, if He decides to come again (which He’s already made that decision) who are we to say that He can’t? And yet there are many, and these are the false Christs, who are the ones that are saying that Christ cannot come again. They think, “He’s only going to come the way I have fixed in my mind and that’s by recognizing Christ consciousness.” As I said, we must recognize the Christ consciousness but we must also recognize that there is an entity that occupies the position of the Christ for the whole planet and the second coming is when He will make a manifestation of some kind. All of the details are not given. The time is not given and no one knows for sure, but He has promised to show up. It will be an interesting time when He does.

There’s even mystery behind this. We’re told He may come like a thief in the night. We’re also told that He will come back in the same way that we saw Him go and there were only about twelve or so people who saw Him go so when He appears will there be only a small number of people that will be aware when He first shows up? There are a lot of mysteries around this; perhaps the most mysterious doctrine in the religious world.

The Chain of Contact

May 14, 2020

The Chain of Contact

Over the years I have had a number of people ask me about prayer and how our communion with God is supposed to work. I’ve touched on the answer to this in the past, but perhaps a more complete explanation is in order.

Those who are raised in an orthodox religion are taught about a god who sits upon a throne and pays complete attention to each and every one of the billions of people on this planet as well as everything else in the universe. Not only is he aware of you but he follows your every thought and action.

Now there are various doctrines on the Trinity but most think that Jesus shares this same omniscience.

Thus the good believer who prays feels that God is personally taking an interest in him and hears every word he or she speaks.

Let us turn this idea around and place yourself in the position of the all powerful all knowing God. You have all power so you can do anything you want. Do you really think you would want to spend all your time sitting on a throne taking in and evaluating billions of thoughts and prayers each day?

Just imagine what a hassle it would be to keep track of the thoughts and prayers of even a hundred believers, let alone a thousand, a million or over seven billion here on Earth and trillions on other earths and the unseen worlds.

If you have all power and can do anything you want I do not think his would be your idea of a good time. Just a few dozen rambling prayers going through one’s mind would be enough to drive any sane person to madness.

Does it not make sense here to apply the Law of Correspondences which tells us that that which is higher corresponds or has similarities to that which is below and that which is below corresponds to that which is above? The correspondences are never exactly the same, as many teach, but there are always similarities.

What therefore could correspond to a Higher Intelligence we call God governing his kingdom?

A lower correspondence to God and his kingdom would be a CEO over a business kingdom such as Tim Cook who presides over Apple. Tim is responsible for 137,000 employees, but even though he accepts this responsibility he does not personally oversee each one and give them instructions and corrections while individually listening to all their concerns. Instead, he presides over a hierarchy.

If there is some new policy he wants to incorporate he may call a meeting of a handful of leaders and explain it to them. They in turn will spread the ideas to others until all the many thousands receive the transmission and are given the individual attention that is needed to adapt to the new information or policy.

If a regular employee has a concern that he thinks he needs to share with Tim he will find that the best approach is to contact his supervisor instead, as Tim is too busy to individually listen to all employees. If an employee has something that is indeed innovative the suggestion may go up the line of authority until it reaches Tim, but as it turns out most concerns will be centered around his working group which may be a dozen employees or less. Most employee concerns and communications are handled at lower levels of hierarchy and need not call the attention of the higher ones who have their hands full dealing with broader issues.

Now Tim has an awareness, or a finger on the pulse, of the whole company and if he desires he can call upon any individual employee, but overall his attention has to be upon the whole rather than the part. On the other hand, the parts, or the individuals are not ignored, but linked up to Tim by a hierarchy of other workers. No one is left without guidance.

Now the skeptic will say that one cannot compare heavenly things to earthly things or God to humans.

And I say, why not? Of course, there will be differences but there are certain principles that are universal.

Why do you suppose it is written that God has “an innumerable company of angels” (Heb 12:22) and servants at his disposal if He as an individual does all the work? If this one being called God does all things for us then why does he need prophets, messengers and angels?

To the vast multitude of faithful servants on the earth Jesus made this promise:

“Well done, good and faithful servant; thou hast been faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many things: enter thou into the joy of thy lord.” Matt 25:23

If the individual we call God does all the work then what work will there be for the faithful servants. What are the “many things” over which they will preside?

God works with us because he needs us for we live in a universe of duality and separation so the various separate entities have to help each other. We are the arms and legs of God that have to reach out and assist others to the extent that they will say within themselves, “thank God.”

So what happens when we pray? Is anyone listening?

How far up the ladder your prayer goes depends on the intensity and sincerity of the individual.

Jesus tells us that we have “angels” who are assigned to watch over us. (Matt 18:10)

Indeed, there is one individual, usually higher up the ladder of spiritual evolution than yourself, who resides in the spirit world, paradise, or the kingdom of souls. This individual is assigned to watch over you and will assist you in making course corrections to insure that you fulfill your life’s purpose. This individual deals with a number of earth entities so you do not take up all of its labor but it will pay particular attention to you at important crossroads of your life.

This angel, or guide as it is often called, does not focus on answering your prayers though it may assist at certain important occasions.

The average payer of average intensity goes to your subconscious and mental self. This is like a great computer that can send you answers on many things, but it is only as accurate as its programming. It is a little like Google in that it has lots of information available, much of it is useful, but it is not infallible.

If your prayer, meditation or focused thought is intense enough you may pierce the astral static and reach your soul, your Higher Self, your guide or some helpful spirit entity who just happens to be tuning in.

Your normal contact above your subconscious is your own Higher Self or soul. Your soul is happy to see you making an effort to contact Higher Intelligence for a channel must be open by an effort from both sides of the veil. The soul’s effort is described in the first rule of White Magic which reads:

“The Solar Angel collects himself, scatters not his force, but in meditation deep communicates with his reflection.”

You are the reflection of your Higher Self, the soul, and such reflection roughly corresponding to your dream self which is an imperfect reflection of your waking self.

If you want to communicate with your dream self you have to focus a powerful thought and send it to your subconscious which can be picked up by the dream self. Then there are those who are lucid dreamers who are aware they are dreaming and know they are one with the waking self.

Now the correspondence between the higher and lower selfs is not exactly like this, but similar.

Jus as your waking self has a higher awareness than your dream self even so does your soul have a higher awareness than you. Even so, your soul is still you, but just a more complete you with much greater knowledge and abilities.

On the other hand, your soul is a reflection of something still higher which is your originating intelligence, called the Monad in the Ancient Wisdom.

Your soul corresponds to your Mother in Heaven and your monad to your Father God.

Your soul is linked to all other human souls on the planet which are linked to their monads which are linked to the One Great Life we call God.

Therefore, when your prayer ascends to your soul it ascends to God, but in this universe of duality God has become the many and there is indeed an “innumerable company” of assistants who help in the great work of guiding us through this dreary world until we find our way home.

Let Common Sense Prevail

March 13, 2020

Let Common Sense Prevail

An increasing number of people are expressing concern over the Coronavirus. Some have even gone so far as to associate it with the plagues in the Book of Revelation.

Unbelievers seem equally as panicked and imagine the worst while pointing fingers of blame and irresponsibility at anyone who tries to maintain a voice of reason.

I will try and be a voice of reason here and this may draw criticism from the extremes of the left and the right.

First let us look at the situation as it exists at the time of this writing (March 13, 2020).

So far worldwide there have been 143,757 cases resulting in 5,394 deaths.

Compared to the Swine Flue of 2009 within a period of a year there were somewhere between 151,700 to 575,400 deaths

In the United States there have been 1,992 cases so far resulting in 41 deaths. So far there has not been one death reported from someone under 50.

Between April 12, 2009, and April 10, 2010, the CDC estimates the Swine Flu caused 60.8 million illnesses in the United States alone with 273,304 hospitalizations and 12,469 deaths. Most of those affected were under 50.

So how serious is the regular flu? The CDC also estimates that up to 31 million in just the United States have caught the flu this season, with 210,000 to 370,000 flu sufferers hospitalized because of the this regular flu virus.

During the 2017-2018 flu season alone a whopping 61,000 people died, yet no ball games and special events were cancelled.

To put things in comparison in 2017 there were 70,200 drug overdose deaths involving an opioid and the problem is not diminishing.

Think you’re safe in a hospital? Each year there are around 100,000 deaths just from infections caught while staying in the hospital.

On top of that if we look at other problems we find that there are 250,000 deaths each year from medical errors.

Considering that if you are under 50 and living in the United States you should be more worried about being struck by lightening than the Coronavirus.

Considering our reaction to the Coronavirus one would think we are dealing with the likes of the Black Death plague of the fourteenth century. Now that was something to indeed be concerned about. One could be infected in the evening and suffer in horrible pain through the night and be dead in the morning. It was indeed a frightening disease that killed a third of the people in Europe and devastated much of the world.

Tom Hanks and his wife are the first celebrities I know of to get the disease. Tom, who is 63, an age that is supposed to be especially dangerous, made little comment about their condition. Perhaps they were so mildly affected that he didn’t want diminish the fear out there, but their son, Chet Hanks, did say this, “They’re not even that sick. They’re not worried about it. They’re not trippin’, but they’re going through the necessary health precautions, obviously but I don’t think it’s anything to be too worried about.”

Today I heard an interview with a 65 year old lady who tested positive on a cruise ship and she said she only had mild symptom for about three hours and that was it.

On top of this we have word from China that they are securing some containment, that the spread of the disease is diminishing there. If accurate that would indicate that it can be controlled, especially after a vaccine is given out. A Texas company has already claimed to have developed one, but will take a while to get it approved and distributed.

One who takes a holistic view and looks at the data may ask why there is so much panic spread by the media? Is this just hype to get ratings or political gain or what?

Just like any other pandemic there are unknowns associated with it and the unknown is always frightening. True, it is more deadly than the Swine Flu was when caught, but it is also not spreading as fast so there is a good chance it will turn out to be less damaging than either the Swine Flu, or perhaps regular flu.

Also some countries more affected than others.

Currently, Italy has the most severe density with 292 cases per million. This far exceeds China which only has 56 per million.

In Europe France has 154, Spain 190, Germany 41 and the UK 12 per million.

The United States is doing much better with only 6 cases per million.

And why are we faring better?

On January 30 the CDC confirmed the first US case of human to human transmission. President Trump ordered to protect the U. S. on Jan 31 a Public Health Emergency and issued 14 days quarantine rules for US citizens entering the US from China; and issued an order to deny entry to foreigners who have traveled to China within two weeks.

This raised accusations that Trump was a racist dictator, but it bought us some time and saved many lives,. Buying time is important because the more we know about this disease the better it can be contained.

As it is we have only 41 deaths so far in the United States and I would submit that the raw fear of the disease has caused more deaths than this. I would bet that there have been more than 41 suicides connected with financial downturns caused by fear. It is interesting by comparison that thousands die each year just due to cell phone distraction while walking or driving.

I think the Words of FDR need to ge repeated here:

“The only thing to fear is fear itself.”

On a positive note the stock market went up almost 2000 points today. Let us hope this is a new trend.

Obstacles To Goodwill

Jan 24, 2020

Obstacles To Goodwill

Here’s some more good advice from DK to which the Left should pay attention.

“the refusal of that public to face life as it is and to recognize the facts for what they are. The mass of men need arousing to see that good comes to all men alike and not just to a few privileged groups, and to learn also that “hatred ceases not by hatred but that hatred ceases by love”. This love is not a sentiment, but practical goodwill, expressing itself through individuals, in communities and among nations.”  Problems of Humanity, Page 173

The major problem in the United States that frustrates the promotion of goodwill as envisioned by DK is the hate of the left toward their political opposites. It was bad under Bush but has reached Biblical proportions under Trump.

“But” says one, “it is the Right that is full of hate not us. They are so despicable that we have to totally reject them and distance ourselves from them. We have to protest them, and more at times, and attack pure evil before it can spread.”

Yes, they promote the idea that they are the righteous ones because the Right deserves to be attacked because they are so repulsive.

They remind me of the opponents of Jesus who attacked him and later his disciples. Of them Jesus said

“They shall put you out of the synagogues: yea, the time cometh, that whosoever killeth you will think that he doeth God service. And these things will they do unto you, because they have not known the Father, nor me.” John 16:2-3

Just like the authorities in the time of Jesus thought that the hate they had justified them in severing relationships (putting them “out of the synagogues”) as well as violence even so does the left attack Trump and his voters with everything the law allows and then some. The fact that Kathy Griffin is celebrated for showing a severed head of Trump and many speak of wishing him dead while facing little criticism from their peers is evidence of this attitude.

Now Obama is pretty much the polar opposite of Trump. Most members of the Right disagreed with almost every move he made. Many even saw him and his supporters as outright supporting murder for their support of abortion, even late term abortion. One can see how hate and support of violence could have been supported by them.

Yet we saw no one carrying a severed head from Obama and laughing about it. We saw no one from the Right marching on the homes of leftists banging on their doors and windows, scaring their children. We saw no one from the right refusing to serve Obama supporters or interfering with their dining.

True there were a handful of bad people from the Right also, but when revealed they were generally condemned by them whereas the Left applauded disrespect from the left. Robert DeNiro is a prime example. After showing tremendous disrespect and destructive language toward the President he is applauded and given awards.

I submit that it is the Left that has created the main obstacles to goodwill and if they just relax and assumed a live and let live attitude that we could make a major step toward goodwill as promoted by DK.

I know I am willing and everyone I know from the Right is also. Goodwill is just waiting for the Left to meet us halfway.

Christmas Message 2019

This entry is part 24 of 24 in the series Christmas Messages

Christmas Message 2019

The Master sat in the great council and spoke. “What think ye of humankind – have they made any progress in the last year? How many have found the pure Christ presence within the core of their being? Is goodwill finally beginning to permeate the hearts of mankind?

One spoke up, “As you know the planet is suffering through turbulent times with great discord. The prophecy of goodwill and peace on earth seems to be far distant; whereas your prediction of brother against brother seems to be dominating.”

“Yes, the tension has been building for some time but this is a necessary step the sons and daughters must take to open their eyes and see the new world. You, my friends, have been searching for the pure in heart. Are there enough to swing the balance to peace and goodwill?”

Another spoke, “There has been an increase of both love and hate. Unfortunately, hate has been much more visible than love though love is increasing and flows powerfully beneath the surface of what is visible to the masses.”

I will go check the pulse of the people this Christmas season when their thoughts are more giving than usual.

The Master looked down upon the world and saw many points of dark and light in the hearts of the people. He decided to visit one in darkness first.

He observed a young man watching a political discussion on the television. He agreed with one commentator and hated the other. “Why can’t that stupid jerk see how wrong he is?” he asked himself And why can’t my parents see the truth? “Why are they on the side of hate?” he thought as he nurtured his own hateful thoughts.

Then the phone rang. It was his father wishing him a Merry Christmas. Then he grudgingly sent back greetings, but the father could feel a lack of love in his voice and ended the call with, “I love you son.” He then handed the phone to his wife and she also expressed her love as only a mother can.

His heart had been so disturbed by his political differences that he had difficulty returning the love, but at that instant the Master looked at the energies of his heart and saw dark clouds hiding the love that abides in the center. His thoughts penetrated that darkness and reached the core of his being.

His heart was touched and a stream of memories flooded his mind with all the loving acts his parents had done for him over the years. As his mind and heart returned to capture the feeling of those happy times he started to weep.

His mother was concerned and asked if anything was wrong.

“Why can’t things be the way they used to be where we loved each other and agreed on things?”

“Our love for you is greater than politics,” said his mother. We can have more love, not less, if we just look at the best in each other.”

Thanks Mom. Our political differences have made me feel distant lately but I just had a surge of good memories come back that reminded me of what great parents you are. I love you both and this time I really mean it.”

The master was pleased that this young man could he reached and moved on.

Next, he observed a young lady who was obsessed with social media. She had little physical contact because of the large amount of time online and this caused her much distress. She observed all the happy pictures posted by others and felt that everyone seemed to be having a better time than herself. Then when she did post anything that wasn’t positive she felt others reacted with bullying comments. This created a vicious circle of attack from both sides.

Her negativity had progressed beyond the point of reason and she was thinking of taking a bottle of pills and ending her grief.

The Master tuned into her thoughts and the heart of her sister who was in a positive state and linked the two hearts. The older sister then thought of the younger and felt a cry for help. She made a call, wished her a Merry Christmas and shared her love. She then reminded her of the good times they had when younger and these pleasant thoughts revived her spirit and she decided to embrace life again, feeling that life would get better.

The Master then raised his consciousness to embrace the earth and viewed all the hate and love, the positive and negative, the good and the bad. He saw the homeless and the destitute, the rich and the prosperous. He saw many sacrificing themselves to help others yet many holding back thinking only of themselves. He saw many consumed with rage and hate and others filled with love.

As he raised his consciousness further he saw many points of darkness, but they were gradually being pushed back by points of light coming from loving hearts. Indeed the darkness seemed overwhelming, but it had reached the height of its power.

The Master sat again before the council and spoke: “The point of tension is great indeed, but the hearts of all but the most hardened of souls can still be reached with love. The spirit of light and love is increasing and will not be extinguished. Let us continue to encourage humankind to take the better path and we will assess them again in the year to come. The will of the Most High will surely come to pass, but because of free will the only unknown factor is the time involved.

“What shall be the keynote of our focus?” was asked.

“We need to remind those imprisoned by negativity to look back on their lives as did the two souls I visited, and review the pleasant memories where love was shared. This will nourish the love of Christ that is eternally at the core of their being and cause it to manifest anew.”

“May it be so,” said the group as one voice.
