Deep Thoughts

Deep Thoughts

Read these words of Djwahl Khul (DK) over and give your thoughts as a group. It should be interesting to see what you come up with.

There are two quotes. Here is the first one:

“Gradually the antahkarana is built and in this way the ‘greater Light and the lesser light’ are consciously related. A path of light and energy is established or created between these two divine aspects. As time goes on, there appears in the egoic group what is technically known as the “linking light” or the “bridging radiance.” This is the Path referred to in The Old Testament as ‘the path of the just is as a shining light which shineth more and more until the day be with us.’ In the esoteric books it is referred to in the following terms:   ‘Before a man can tread the path, he must become that path himself.’

“These four stages have been described in The Old Commentary in the following terms:

‘The point of light shines forth. It waxes and it wanes. The point becomes a line through the starting of a vortex and from the centre of the whirling force, there comes a voice–invocative and clear.

‘The One Who sits in silent work, alone and unafraid (because the part is not alone and the group is unafraid) looks down, catches the light, reflects the whirling force and hears the voice.

‘Then from the silent point of power, a Word goes forth: Be still. Be silent. Know that I am God. The needed work will now begin.

‘Between the Great One and the little striving one, communion is established; the interplay begins; the mind assumes its rightful place. The Path is surely laid.” Discipleship in the New Age, Vol 1, Pages 714-715

And, here is the second quote.

“You will see, therefore, why I have included this teaching upon the Points of Revelation in what I have to give you anent the processes of preparing for initiation. It is essential that the modern disciple no longer goes forward blindly but that he cooperates intelligently in the new systems of training. You will note the relation (if you call it no more than that) between the two phrases ‘points of revelation’ and ‘mountain of initiation.’ In the Old Commentary, these are brought together in a very illumined statement–illuminating if duly reflected upon:

“The disciple climbs the mountain, its five peaks illumined by the Sun and hiding the other two.

“From point to point he goes and the Way moves upward all the time-out of the dark into the light, from the jungle to the open space, from night to dawn.

“From point to point he moves and at each point he gets new revelation. Five are the mountain peaks, and as he mounts towards each peak he receives five times the light. Five to the five and so from five to five till five fives have brought him light. Ten lie ahead, but these concern him not as yet.

“What is meant here (to bring it down to the bare factual outline) is that there are five initiations ahead of the disciple, with two more ahead of the Master, making in all seven initiations, and that prior to each initiation-symbolically or factually speaking-there are five great revelations, making a total of twenty-five, with ten later to be registered by the Master.

“I have indicated to you in my past instructions three of these revelations. They are, if you will remember:

“1. Energy follows thought and the eye directs that energy. This has been an occult platitude ever since the days of H.P.B., during whose time it was decided that this was the first of the points of revelation which could safely be given to the general public. The assertion of this revealed fact was an essential piece of knowledge in the world, prior to the externalisation of the Ashrams–or, my brother, of the Hierarchy. The thought that all is energy has already been accepted by modern science, and the concept of vision (the first step towards understanding the use of the spiritual eye) is already part of the teaching of modern philosophy and of many of the metaphysical schools.

“2. The Will is fundamentally an expression of the Law of Sacrifice. Paradoxically we found that when the spiritual will was–even in a small measure–expressing itself, there was no such thing as sacrifice. Incidentally, we considered the great exponents and the great field of sacrifice, considering the great Life in which we all, as well as all other forms, live and move and have our being.

“I would like here to quote something I said to you in connection with this subject: ‘These few thoughts upon the significance of sacrifice, or upon the ‘taking over,’ through identification, of the task of salvage, of revitalising and of presenting opportunity, are important to all disciples, as a goal and as a vision.’ (Page 288.)

“3. The Monad is to the planetary Logos what the third eye is to man, esoterically understood. This is a most abstruse statement for all of you and will require much concentrated reflection and serene meditation. The vision of the solar Logos and of the planetary Logos is closely related to intention and purpose, and is the cause of the Plan. It is, however, beyond and different to the Plan. I leave this thought for your consideration and meditation, but can assure you that you will come to no easy or early comprehension.

“Later on, as the years slip away and as students come and go, a clearer grasp of the techniques of comprehension–these emerging Points of Revelation–will form themes for prolonged meditation and doors of entrance to the new occultism. The foundations for this new occultism are well and soundly laid; the superstructure can be erected now, slowly and with due care, in conformity with the divine blueprints and in response to a sensitive reaction to spiritual impression.” Discipleship in the New Age, Vol 2, Pages 308-310
