Understanding Mind

Understanding Mind

Question: What other things need to be taught to assure the world that a new age of peace can really be established?


How will disciples reach the masses?

There are indeed many great and wonderful things that will be taught in the new age. There is one most important principle that has been overlooked and here is the hint.

The Age of Pisces which we are leaving is ruled by which element and what does it symbolize?

The Age of Aquarius which we are entering is ruled by which element and what does it symbolize?

The shift from the element of Pisces to the element of Aquarius indicates the new comprehension that must be known. What is it?

We can see this shift playing out in the polarized elections and political divisions of today.

A reader pointed out that the element of Pisces is water symbolizing emotions and that of Aquarius (air) symbolizes the mind

The shift of attention by humanity from an emotional base for decision to the mind will insure the stability necessary for an age of peace to prevail.

As humans begin evolution we start with attention centered in the instinct/physical. Next we evolve to the emotional/astral. Then we move to the mental/thinking and finally to the intuitive/soul.

What do you suppose is the percentage of humanity that has risen to the plane of the mind to some degree?

Many feel that emotion (misnamed heart by many) is higher than mind, but why is it necessary that mind controls emotion rather than the other way around?

Are the heart energies connected with mind or emotion? Explain

This answer to the percentage was actually given by Djwhal Khul through Alice A. Bailey back in the 1940s. The answer he gave was about ten per cent. Sometimes, however, I feel that it must be lower than this for sometimes it is difficult to find a logical person.

Another thing to consider is that humanity is evolving and that it is likely that this figure has risen perhaps a few more percentage points.

Now some have thought that certain degrees of mind is active in all people, but this is not quite the case. It is true that those not included in the ten percent may have some mental activation, but just not polarized there yet. Even so, there are many in which the principle of mind lies dormant.

One may object and declare that everyone thinks, it is just that some think with more accuracy than others.

On the contrary my friends, the truth is that all use their brains, but all do not think. The cause of this world wide misunderstanding is that the use of the brain has been related to thinking, but…

The brain does not think.

Instead the brain is a piece of equipment equal to a super computer. This super computer has many built in programs and is capable of many calculations, but it does not think.

What does it do then?

Answer: It calculates. Calculating and thinking are two very different activities.

The emotionally polarized person has instinct, can calculate and feel, but does not think.

This is why most of the people on the planet have the mark of the Beast of authority. Only by the development of the ability to think can one break the mold of being controlled by programming, break free and become truly independent through thought.

The brain corresponds to a super computer, but the thinker corresponds to a programmer sitting at the keyboard with the realization that he does not have to go according to program, but has the power to work creatively and rewrite things.

The thinker is in charge of his destiny.

The non thinker must be controlled by a program.

The thinker does not lose contact with emotion, but increases contact, but learns to direct feelings intelligently.

Just as light has a higher vibration than sound and yellow is higher than red even so is the astral vibration higher than physical and the matter of mind is higher than astral/emotion.

This does not mean that light is “better” than sound or mind than feeling for both are essential on their level. It does mean that one is higher in vibration than the other and the higher vibration is always more difficult to comprehend and master.

All of us have a mental body, but the elements of which it is composed are not available for our use until we begin to master thought


Many feel that emotion (misnamed heart by many) is higher than mind, but why is it necessary that mind controls emotion rather than the other way around?

All of us feel emotion, but for most this feeling comes through the solar plexus center which is a reflection of heart energy. Few have felt the full power of the heart energies.

Emotion leads us into experience with no plan to master that experience. Mind must eventually be brought into play to create plans and direct the emotion and the experience in a constructive direction. Without the dominance of mind over emotion there will always be a lack of completion of purpose and a drifting off randomly in a new direction.

Emotion without mind is self destructive.

There is no such thing as mind without emotion for one must pass through the world of emotion to develop mind.

There are those who suppress emotion, but the emotion is still there.


Are the heart energies connected with mind or emotion? Explain

The heart center is composed of twelve energy petals that slowly unfold as we evolve toward Spirit. Six are different types of love energy and six are differing types of wisdom energies.

These wisdom energies in connection with the two head centers are very much linked to mind and thought as well as spiritual feeling. Solomon talked about thinking in the heart and indeed he was teaching a profound realization.

Let us now seek greater understanding in differentiating between the thinker and the non thinker.


Is one who has graduated from college as an engineer likely to be a thinker?

Is one who has patented three inventions likely to be a thinker?

Is the author of a best selling book likely to be a thinker?

Is one who has started a new and unique business likely to be a thinker?

Which is most likely to be a thinker?

(a) A member of a dangerous cult.

(b) An outstanding member of an orthodox church.

Name an individual who you believe to be using mind.

McCall Gathering 2007, Part 52

This entry is part 52 of 54 in the series McCall Gathering 2007

Labor XI
Cleansing the Augean Stables (Aquarius)

JJ: Next is my sign Aquarius, the cleansing of the Augean stables. Hercules was to seek out the land of Augeas that was ruled over by a king. Now this king had these stables there where had kept horses for 30 years and for 30 years he had not kept them clean and the dung was all over the place – it was everywhere. It stunk up the countryside and the king had consultants come in and nobody seemed to know how to get rid of it all.

W hen servants went in to shovel it out they could only stay in for a very short period of time because the stench was so bad, so the king could just not get these stables clean. In came Hercules before the king and he says, I can clean the stables and I believe I can do it in one day and I will not even charge you anything. Then the king says, I think you are mad but if you can do it in one day then I will give you one tenth of my cattle.

Hercules agreed and again he stood back and did some more thinking and noticed a river near by. He went to the stables and opened the side doors so that the air passed through the back and the front and then he diverted this great river. The river came and gushed through the stables and washed all the dung away – so Hercules was able to clean the stables within just a few hours.

Then he goes to the king and said, oh king I have cleaned out your stables for you and I have come to collect my reward. The king says, this is a trick and I thought you were going to do it by hard work. Hercules said it was not a trick I did it by using my mind. The king said I am not going t pay you for doing it with such ease. You will leave now or I will have you killed and I am not giving you 10% of my cattle.

So Hercules had to flee for his life and he got no reward or appreciation for doing that great labor for the people.

I like to compare this to the life of Abraham Lincoln who was an Aquarian responsible for a Herculean work. The horses represent human beings and the dung represents all the mess that human beings make as they do their work and we make a mess in many ways. Slavery was part of that dung in the past and today all the bureaucracies we create represent a lot of it. In addition we have all of the pollution to the environment and all of the forces of nature that we upset to a degree. All these things are problems of humanity and Hercules’ job was to clean out all these stables.

Now in government one of the main places where dung is created is the bureaucracy and it is interesting how bureaucracies really fulfill that. Wouldn’t it be great if we could have a Hercules today go and clean out the government in one day as he did with the stables?

Audience: Chuckling

JJ: That is actually what we need. You see what everybody else did in those days was they came with shovels and piece by piece they tried to clean them out and the stench was so bad they could not stay for long. So what happens when they go to Washington? They say, “Man, the stench was so bad I could only stay in Washington a little while and I had to get out of that place!” That is exactly what happens.

What we need is total cleansing to revamp the system and clean it out and start fresh and then we could have a country where everybody could have health and prosperity.

Audience: What would the water represent?

JJ: Water in this situation is a cleansing force, water symbolizes several things, cleansing, spiritual force. As a matter of fact the water came in two streams and there is a legend about the jar that the Aquarian puts on his shoulder and when he pours forth to a thirsty world it comes out in two streams and the two streams symbolizes life and love. So life and love is a cleansing force that will clean out the stables.

If we want to clean out the stables in Washington we must do it with the power of a new invigorated life and love if that is possible.

It is fascinating how the life of Abraham Lincoln corresponds here, the stables full of dung at that time was created by slavery and slavery was a stench on this country. To clean it out and perform the task of Hercules for that age, Abraham Lincoln, a quintessential Aquarian, shows up and he cleans out the stables by fighting the civil war and ending slavery. And after he ended it he did not ask for a reward like Hercules but people acted like they were going to give him a reward and instead of getting a reward he got shot.

Hercules was just threatened and escaped with his life but Abraham Lincoln did get shot and pretty much all he got for his life of service was a lot of hard work and distress and a wife that gave him a hard time on top of everything else. He had a rough life and little reward for all that he accomplished and did for us. It was similar for Hercules who showed up performed a great service and was chased out of town on a rail so to speak.

Audience: Where is the lesson here?

JJ: The lesson is to learn to serve even though you do not get a reward. Keep in mind this is the eleventh labor and we only have one more to go. As the disciple is reaching the point to be able to perform a labor similar to what Jesus performed he has to go through a period where he serves whether gets a reward or not, whether he gets any appreciation or not, just like what Abraham Lincoln went through. He served all that time, went through all that strain and pain and determination and got virtually no reward for it. He served for the sake of service alone and this is what happens in the Aquarian labor.

Audience: I guess I can understand the thought of working without the thought of a reward but I don’t understand him not getting a rewarded at the end anyway.

JJ: This is a little bit of a delayed reward because he does get a reward later on. Hercules is very close to eternal life and this is the end reward and at this point the reward of 10% of the cattle was really not that big of deal to pass on when you figure he was so close to getting the reward of eternal life where he would not have to incarnate again unless he wanted to and have power over life and death. That is the reward he is now very close to and because he is close to it he has a lot more impetus to continue with or without reward than he did at the beginning.

Discovering the New Age, Part 1


June 18, 2016

Discovering the New Age, Part 1

There has been a lot of talk in new age and esoteric circles about Piscean and Aquarian qualities and aspects that surface in our society. The Piscean is generally associated with the old that is passing away and no longer applicable and the Aquarian with the new that will be a part of the new age of peace, prosperity, love etc.

The problem with numerous assumptions made is that many tend to associate their own ideals and bias with the coming great age and associate all they dislike with the passing age of Pisces, generally seen as a pretty bad age that we should be happy to leave behind, or bury with the dead bones of the ignorant. Nowhere is this attitude more prominent than in the political world. The political view that is supported is seen as Aquarian and the opposing side is seen as old age or Piscean.

Let us attempt to put aside prejudices and do our best look at this subject objectively. The first thing we must do is draw a demarcation between Piscean and Aquarian characteristics so we can spot them in today’s climate. Without doing this it is pretty meaningless to just state that Joe the bartender’s views are old age with no light to them.

In examining the two ages we must not only take into consideration the astrological aspects, but also the Rays. The rays three, five and seven are active and closely linked to mind and harmonize well with Aquarius which is an air sign. Air is a symbol of the mind. Ray seven will produce the greatest changes in the near future and it is associated with Uranus, the ruling planet of Aquarius.

Just as Pisces is passing away so is the dominating ray of that age which is six. Pisces is a water sign, symbolic of emotions and ray six is the most emotional of the rays, governing the solar plexus. The water influence of Pisces with the idealism of ray six makes for a very emotional age where the people will often follow a course that runs contrary to logic.

As we read the history of the past two thousand years we indeed see that strong illogical emotions often governed the day rather than the voice of reason.

That said, let us tabulate some of the qualities of the passing age as well as the new.


Strong emotional dominance, often powerful enough to override reason, logic and facts.

A focus on an ideal that stirs the emotional center. This causes people to emphasize perfection and is why there has been so much attention placed on Jesus as the perfect man who is linked to a perfect God.

A focus on sacrificing for the ideal in hope of benefiting in the next world.

An emphasis on strong authority that takes the place of analytical thinking.

Seeing things in black and white rather than the nuances in between.

A willingness to put individual freedom aside and be controlled by external powers. Slavery was widespread during the past age and individual freedom suppressed and often seen as heresy.

Strong judgmental approach. The Inquisition was an example of this.


People will switch from an emotional polarization to a more mental one. Logic and reason will play a much lager roll in decision making.

Growing focus will be placed on service for the good of the many.

Less emphasis will be placed on the ideal and perfection and more on what works and benefits humanity.

Using sacrifice to achieve a goal in hope of benefiting in the this world.

An emphasis of questioning authority and finding out the truth for oneself through his own efforts.

There will be a moving away from the black and white judgmental attitude and people will attain a broader scope of vision, seeing many shades of gray.

Maximum freedom will be sought and secured by the establishment of just and fair laws supported by the will of the majority of the people.

The seventh ray, which governs business, will influence business to continue to evolve. We will see more employee owned businesses and various types of cooperatives surface. Law, which is also seventh ray, will begin to adhere to the Law of Economy and assist business and the people rather than creating unwarranted obstacles.

If I had to distil the differences of the two ages down to a paragraph it would be this.

Decision-making in passing age of Pisces was governed by emotion and influenced by strong authority. In the new age it will be governed by mind, putting logic and reason ahead of feelings.

Right now we are between the two ages. The emotional control of Pisces still dominates over mind. The reason for this lingering of emotional control is that there are still many sixth ray egos incarnating and, according to DK, we’ll still see a lot of them for the next 120 years. After that, the sixth ray will be mostly out of incarnation and we will see the rise of a humanity that is capable of being polarized in the mind, which makes logical decisions rather than feel-good emotional ones that often lead to disaster.

Let us hope that civilization holds together until that day arrives.

Many of the things that have been accepted by the majority of seekers as positive change are correctly seen as Aquarian, or new age, in tendency. Here are a few:

(1) The shift away from authoritarian rule toward democracy. There is still way too much authoritarianism, but we are much better off than was the world in the midst of the Piscean Age.

(2) The shift toward the scientific method and acceptance of proven scientific discoveries.

(3) The shift away from absolute control of the church and religious authorities.

(4) The shift away from teachings that have no foundation in logic and common sense. There are still a lot of non-sensible teachings afloat, but humanity has taken a few steps toward the more logical side of things.

(5) The abolition of slavery and the shift toward greater individual and group freedom.

Wendell Phillips reminded us that this shift could be temporary. He said, “Eternal vigilance is the price of liberty; power is ever stealing from the many to the few.”

Indeed we always have the power hungry seeking to control the many for the benefit of the few.

(6) The rise of charitable and service organizations that help those in need.

(7) The rise of spiritual investigation not connected with any church or dogma.

(8) The dramatic increase in technology, including. Technology involving air and space travel is particularly Aquarian, though technology as applied to business is strong also.

Now let us examine the controversial items on which there is much division, not only among spiritual seekers but all classes of people.

Paramount among them are:

Which political candidate to support?

Since both sides of the equation represent numerous issues, examining the choice becomes complicated. To determine whether one is Pisces or Aquarian in approach he needs to ask himself this question.

Is my decision on which party or candidate to support based on emotion or mind, reaction or reason, the good of the whole or satisfying the part?

The tricky thing about sorting out those who make decisions based on emotion is that many emotionally based people are found on both sides of the political equation. An emotionally based choice that is the better of the two is generally based on luck, but it often happens. They happen to get their data from a correct source or authority and it feels right to them so they go with it because of how it makes them feel. Without using the weight of mind though they will often make the wrong choice in other matters. Only through the application of mind, reason and logic can humanity as a whole consistently make the choice that is the greater good.

Another problem is that the person who makes a choice because of emotional polarization doesn’t see it that way. Many such people are very intelligent with good memories and have lots of facts, statistics and talking points in their computer brains. Almost all people whether they be polarized in the mind or emotions see themselves as following the path of reason and common sense. No one likes to think otherwise, no matter how unreasonable their conclusions may be.

If many of those making feeling based decisions are also intelligent then why would they stay with the emotional decision over the reasonable one?

The answer is that the emotions are very powerful. Everyone perceives the emotion of love on some level and feel that if their decision is based on this then it is the most reasonable in the end. The problem is that there are many glamours and illusions in the way of seeing perfect love, so being motivated by the emotion of love, especially solar plexus love, is not an accurate guide for decision making.

First, one must go though the avenues of the mind and learn to see the wisdom aspect of the heart center to see reality as it is. When the seeker has done this then he can make wise decisions as well as do that which is in harmony with inclusiveness and loving our fellow men and women.

Here is how it works for the intelligent, but emotionally polarized person.

He examines the surface of the issues and one side just feels much better than the other. From that point on his feelings cause a possible open mind to shut down. Instead of looking for the truth wherever it may lie he only looks for facts and reason that will verify his original feeling. He then proceeds with all the resources of a mentally polarized person to gather information to prove to himself and others that his feeling was correct.

An example of this we can all relate to is the illusion prevalent for thousands of years that the earth was the center of the universe with the sun and all the stars circling around it.

Now, all things considered, there was only a 50/50 chance that the sun circled around the earth. It was equally possible that it was the earth that circled around the sun. Why then was it that over 99% of the population believed the illusion?

The answer is simple. Each emotionally based person feels himself to be the center of the universe, so naturally the earth on which he resides is also the center of all things.

The idea that the earth is the glorious center of all creation harmonized with feelings of the Piscean aged people. We, as a people, had to be dragged away from this idea, kicking and screaming, until realty stared us in the face with such power that we were forced to acquiesce.

Today, both the emotionally and mentally polarized yield to the proof that it is the earth that circles around the sun.

BUT… that old idea still has residual power causing many intelligent, but deluded people to believe that:

  • The earth is the only planet in the universe with life.
  • The earth is special in God’s eyes and is the crown jewel of the universe.
  • The earth is the center of a great battle between the forces of good and evil in the universe.

The truth is that earth is only one of trillions of planets in the universe with various forms of life. It is more beautiful than most, but not unique or the center of anything except from this point of view. Every creation and life in the universe is a center from which all things in its periphery must be discovered.

The Candidates, Aquarian or Piscean?


May 30, 2016

The Candidates, Aquarian or Piscean?

I have noted before that the vast majority of Bailey students as well as new agers in general support the politics of the left. My estimate is that around 80-90% of them take this stand.

That is fine. I realize that many seekers and even initiates may disagree with each other on a number of things. The great work will still go forward if all do their best in seeing the soul within their fellow workers.

On the other hand, something about this upcoming election has brought out the worst in many people high and low in evolution.

In some circles people are not only plugging Bernie Sanders for president, but insulting anyone who may wind up voting for Donald Trump. Hillary is kind of seen that a middle of the road candidate and her supporters, though not cutting edge, are given a pass.

The talk of Bernie Sanders vs Trump goes something like this.

Bernie represents the Aquarian age, the Brotherhood of Light, reflects the teachings of DK and the Masters. If Bernie can get elected spiritual evolution will receive a great shot in the arm. Those who support him are the more enlightened of society.

Trump, on the other hand, is said to represent the old ways of the Piscean age. He is a strong authority patterned after the likes of Hitler and Mussolini and needs to be defeated at all costs. His supporters must be backward indeed for anyone in contact with the Christ within would surely shun the guy and support Bernie.

Since I would vote for Trump over either Bernie or Hillary this then places me with the Neanderthals and zealots of the Piscean age that is supposed to be dying out. It looks like my hand is forced to stand up for truth as I see it.

Here is the question to ask. Does Trump really represent the passing age of Pisces that must be discarded and does Bernie herald the Age of Aquarius?

Let us look at Bernie first. Why do his followers associate him with the age of Aquarius and the Brotherhood of Light?

There is basically one reason for this and that is that Bernie is a big government socialist and hopes to transform America into a socialist utopia. Because many new agers love their ideal of socialism being forced upon the people they equate this with the coming age of Aquarius, not the passing age of Pisces.

So, is Bernie’s idea of socialism really Aquarian in nature or is it from the old order of things?

To answer this we must realize that there are two basic types of socialistic endeavors. One is accomplished by force through the strong authority of a powerful government and the other is accomplished through free will cooperative endeavors.

Both have been around since the beginning of civilization and both existed in the days of Jesus. At that time Rome was the entity that had great authority over the lives of the people and they taxed the people to provide various social programs for the citizens.

There is not one instance of Jesus supporting such an endeavor. The only mention of taxes in relation to Jesus was a criticism that he was not paying them. (See Matt 17:24-27)

On the other hand, Jesus was an advocate of free will socialism. He told his followers to donate directly to the poor. That was a much different injunction than if he had advocated paying higher taxes for Caesar so the state could redistribute more wealth.

Today we see many examples of the type of free will socialism as advocated by Jesus in the various churches. They collect free will offerings and redistribute the wealth to the poor. The Salvation Army is a great example of this.

Other examples of free will socialism are various insurance plans that customers can take or leave, community gardens and employee-owned businesses. Free will socialism rises or falls its own merits whereas government enforced socialism can just tax the people more to compensate for a program that is not efficient or badly managed.

So which kind of socialism better represents the new Age of Aquarius?

The obvious answer is free will socialism. The Age of Pisces was governed by strong authority and powerful control over the people by both church and state. America struck a great blow at the powerful authority of the beast with the Declaration of Independence and the Constitution that limited the powers of outer authorities, especially the government.

The Great Seal of the United States struck the keynote of the new Aquarian Age with the words, Novus ordo seclorum, Latin for “New Order of the Ages.”

And what was this new order of the ages supposed to be? It was a limited government supporting a free people free from the control of strong authority and free from taxation without representation.

Socialism enforced by powerful authority represents the passing age whereas socialism by maximum free will is an ingredient of the new. The falling of the Berlin wall and the Old Soviet Union signaled the failure of strong social Piscean ideals enforced by strong authority.

In addition to strong authority let us look at another characteristic of the Piscean age. Pisces is the strongest water sign and water is a symbol of the emotions. Aquarius is an air sign and air is a symbol of the mind. DK tells us that the great shift of focus to move us into the new age is a change from polarization in the emotional energies to that of the mind.

Pisces is governed by the sixth ray of whose keynote is idealism which works hand in hand with emotional energy. Emotion fixes the image of the ideal in the mind and adds to its power over the individual. Conversely, emotion attaches itself to the ideal and seeks to manifest it any way it can, even if the rights of others are trampled upon.

Christ presented the divine ideal that stimulated the higher emotion of love, but the flaws of men degenerated the two from being centered in the heart to the solar plexus. We thus saw much that was negative manifested though emotion and idealism during the Age of Pisces. Examples range from the Roman Empire to the crusades, the inquisition, The French revolution and the bloodbath that followed, to burning witches at the stake to slavery, to the Communist Revolution and the idealist authoritarian rule afterwards.

The air sign Aquarius promises a move from idealism, sacrifice and strong emotional authority to a period of time where people will be polarized in the mind and discover the joys of living in a reasonable and logical world governed by wise choices.

Will the Aquarian Age be a replay of the Piscean where we start with a great example and degenerate into the wrong use of mind, which can slay the real and enhance darkness if misdirected?

The expectation of the Hierarchy is that this will not be the case. They tell us that humanity has made major strides in spiritual evolution and we are at the cusp of entering the world of mind, “the plane whereon the Masters can be found.

Part of the reason that a grand opportunity awaits us is that we are not entering a normal Age of Aquarius. Instead, the age we are entering is a lesser age within a cycle of Aquarius that is much greater, over 25,000 years. These strong energies of mind related to service only come along with a double potion about once every 310,000 years. The last time it happened Atlantis was flourishing.

We have just moved over the cusp of the new sign but the old energies of Pisces are fighting strong for survival. They are like the power of a great Dweller on the Threshold fighting for its own survival seeking to hold us back. The old Pisces emotional and authoritarian energies are powerful indeed because the majority of humanity is still strongly polarized in their emotional astral self. They are influenced more by slogans and catchphrases than logic and reason. The emotional pull is so strong that it is likely to take us a couple hundred more years for humanity to take full advantage of the Aquarian energies of mind.

Until humanity itself makes the shift that catches us up with the shift already made in the Zodiac the negative energies of lower emotion and fixed idealism will pull strongly upon us.

When we look at Bernie Sanders we see a person fixed very strongly, not in the Aquarian energies of mind, but in the Piscean energies of idealism authoritarianism, dominated by strong emotion that often does not listen to reason.

The obvious sign of the Piscean, sixth ray idealist is a life that is spent endorsing and promoting an ideal within the mind, but making little if any headway in accomplishing anything of practical value.

This description fits Bernie very precisely. Up to about the age of forty he spent his time promoting his ideals not even having a full time job, accomplishing little of value – not even writing a treatise or book of significance. Then when he did get a full time job it was in the government. He’s never been involved substantially in any private enterprise that creates a thing of value.

Speaking of a dreamer who never accomplishes anything DK says:

A dreamer whose dreams never materialise, a builder who stores up material which he never employs, a visionary whose visions are of no use to gods or men, is a clog upon the system universal. He is in great danger of atrophying.

Letters On Occult Meditation, Page 97

Bernie is indeed a visionary who wants the world to conform to his ideals but so far has made little happen in that direction for which he is responsible.

If he were to become president would he then have his great opportunity or would he wind up just being “a clog upon the system universal”?

We have already had a number of presidents who have accomplished little and either just maintained the status quo or got in the way of Aquarian energies. We do not need another one.

As stated, one of the hallmarks of the Piscean age is the strong emotion that accompanies it. It is the most heavily weighed water sign and water is a symbol of emotion. Powerful misplaced idealism and raw solar plexus emotion dominated much of that age. The quintessential example is perhaps the French Revolution. It was led by a number of idealists with strong feelings who promised a better world for the common man. Maximilien Robespierre was one of the leaders promoting hope and change but wound up incorporating a reign of terror that made the world shiver with abhorrence. It became so bad that he became of victim of his own methods and was himself guillotined without the benefit of a trial.

So, does Bernie and his supporters show signs of wrongheaded zeal in furthering the ideal and destroying the opposition.

Indeed they have. They have made every effort to not only stop Trump from speaking or being heard when he does speak, but they have blocked traffic, tried to shut down main roads leading to Trump rallies and crash the meetings and attempt to prevent anyone but themselves from being heard. A recent (as of this writing) example of their shenanigans happened Friday March 27 in California as CNN reported that about 35 people were arrested by police in riot gear. These people were out of control resisting every effort of the police to protect attending Trump supporters from harm.

Ever since thousands of protesters were able to completely shut down a Trump rally in Chicago last March they have been charged up wanting to create more mayhem and interfere with freedom of speech in any way possible.

All but the conservative media have given mere surface coverage to the forceful attacks of the Sanders supporters until it affected their own party. When the Sanders supporters threatened violence at the Nevada Democratic convention, then the left leaning media gave some serious attention to the matter.

Here is a clip from an article in Newsweek:

The unseemly tirade of Sanders supporters was a marvel, the kind of behavior more likely to be seen among British soccer hooligans than people claiming to be interested in politics. A chair was thrown. People screamed “bitch!” at Senator Barbara Boxer, a staunch liberal from California. Even the Nevada state Democratic chairwoman, Roberta Lange, who had endorsed Sanders, needed a security detail just to go to the bathroom in order to protect her from the hypocritical “humanity lovers” who seem to hate everyone but themselves and their idol. Afterward, the goons kept up their hostile hysterics. Protesters vandalized the offices of the state Democratic Party. Lange’s personal contact information, including her cell phone number, were posted online, and she has since received thousands of death threats, according to state party officials. One of the text messages to Lange said, “Praying to god someone shoots you in the FACE and blows your democracy-stealing head off!” (Only in the delusions of Sanders-land could democracy be stolen when the winner of the popular vote was winning.) Voicemail obtained by Jon Ralston, the dean of Nevada political reporters, contain such delightful statements as, “People like you should be hung in a public execution…. You are a sick, twisted piece of sh*t, and I hope you burn for this!” And, “You f**king stupid bitch! What the hell are you doing? You’re a f**king corrupt bitch!” And, “You’re a c*nt. F**k you!” And, “You probably just guaranteed fire is in Philadelphia.” Yeah, these are exactly the kind of people who Americans want to have as the next president’s base—vicious, sociopathic misogynists.


Barbara Boxer, a long time Democratic stalwart reported to CNN, “I feared for my safety and I had a lot of security around me … I’ve never had anything like this happen. It was a scary situation … If I didn’t have a lot of security, I don’t know what would have happened.”

Through all these disruptions and infringements on free speech and threats of violence Bernie has mostly just stood back giving the impression that he silently approves of such behavior.

All this brings to mind a saying from Jesus,

Ye shall know them by their fruits. Do men gather grapes of thorns, or figs of thistles?

Even so every good tree bringeth forth good fruit; but a corrupt tree bringeth forth evil fruit.

A good tree cannot bring forth evil fruit, neither can a corrupt tree bring forth good fruit. Every tree that bringeth not forth good fruit is hewn down, and cast into the fire.

Wherefore by their fruits ye shall know them. Matt 7:16-20

Part of Bernie’s fruit are the out of control supporters and that fruit is quite distasteful.

“But,” says the Bernie supporter, “everyone knows that the Trump people are the ones who are really out of control and should be feared.”

If one only listens to the reporting of the left this opinion is understandable for Trump and his supporters are presented as being a fearsome and violent bunch.

Here are the facts. All the problems at Trump rallies are created by Bernie supporters (maybe a few from Hillary) creating blockades harassing otherwise peaceful Trump attendees and forcing themselves into rallies creating mayhem to interrupt free speech.

If this infringement happened to any other group on the planet there would be some negative reaction take place. Let a thousand protesters try to stop Pope Frances from speaking to a large group and see what happens. Believe me, as saintly as you may think the Pope and his supporters are you can bet there would be some type of negative response take place.

The fact is this. All the attacks with intent to disrupt have come from the left, from Bernie and Hillary supporters, not from Trump. Of all the 17 original Republican candidates there has not been one group of any of their supporters who have attended a Bernie or Hillary rally and attempted to shut them down.

Now considerer what would have been reported if a couple thousand Trump supporters crashed a Bernie rally and blocked toads and entrances. You can bet that the Bernie people would have reacted violently and the supportive media would have placed all the blame on Trump.

When you tabulate the number of defensive attacks by Trump supporters, made only at Trump rallies which have been invaded, you have to give them credit for restraint, instead of blaming them for the problem. If Bernie supporters had remained peaceful there wouldn’t have been enough negativity from the Trump people to make any news.

So, let us examine these two groups – Bernie and Trump supporters. The Trump people just want to attend their guy’s gathering, listen and then go home in peace. On the other hand, the Bernie people are just not happy leaving well enough alone. They feel they must invade the space of the Trump people and prevent them from even hearing their guy. This is sad indeed and certainly does not speak for Bernie as one who is a herald of the new Age of Aquarius.

Another point to consider is that Aquarius is ruled by Uranus which is dominated by the seventh ray. On top of this the seventh ray is coming into incarnation and having an increased influence as we move into the new age. This means that if we want to find a true Aquarian candidate we would want to see aspects of the seventh ray manifested.

The seventh ray governs business, finance, organizational ability, ceremony and law.

Bernie is the strongest anti business, anti finance with the least organizational experience in the presidential equation and Hillary is not far behind. In many cases he does not support compliance with the law.

Trump on the other hand, is very strong seventh ray in this regard He has been in business all his life and has had many dealings with the financial world. He also runs and has run a number of large organizations. He is also a supporter of obedience to law. As far as the seventh ray aspect goes Trump is the Aquarian candidate, hands down.

As far as the sun signs of the candidates go Trump is a Gemini, Bernie is a Virgo and Hillary a Scorpio. Aquarius is an air sign and Trump is the only one who has a corresponding air sign – Gemini. Bernie’s is an earth sign and Hillary in Scorpio is a water sign. In fact water related to the age of Pisces is very strong in her chart.

Air and space exploration is also strongly related to Aquarius. Through the years Bernie has been one of the least supportive in Congress of the space program. He says that social programs are much more important than exploring space. Hillary has a similar attitude, but not as pronounced.

Trump not only has his own private jet but has been a supporter of space exploration and strongly criticized Obama for cutting funds. He wants to get the space program revitalized after he gets the economy headed the right direction.

Another strong characteristic of the Aquarian Age will be law which is an aspect of the seventh ray which is both coming into incarnation as well as being strong in Aquarius by being the dominate ray of Uranus which rules this sign.

So, why is law and order an Aquarian characteristic? After all, many new agers kind of see the coming new age as something existing in a laid back atmosphere where people do their own thing, kind of like a hippie commune satiation.

The hippies had their place in our societal evolution, but their casual adherence to law was not what we were supposed to incorporate from them.

Many seekers do not realize the importance of law and associate law and order with the old age that needs to be left behind. Nothing could be further from the truth. Laws that are accepted and respected are essential to create a peaceful, strong and progressive society. Where there is a breakdown of law you have a descent into either chaos, tyranny, or both.

When you have laws that are properly enforced and respected by the people as being just then you have a general population that can plan their careers, their activities, their recreation, their gatherings, their families, their business etc in a methodical order which can achieve positive results. Without good law constructive progress is greatly hindered.

What interferes with the implementation of constructive law? There are a number of items.

(1) A leader or leaders taking too much authority to themselves so that their word is law above that of the written law passed by legislative bodies. In tyrannies many victims may not break any law but merely offend some authority and are punished on a whim.

(2) Authorities that are tolerated in picking and choosing which laws are to be enforced.

We have a prime example of this with immigration. Many authorities are choosing to ignore immigration laws thus creating a volatile situation where many are upset and few are satisfied.

Many think laws should be ignored if they are seen as bad, but no less than Abraham Lincoln, a quintessential Aquarian, would disagree. Some of the worst laws we have had concerned slavery, yet even though he strongly disagreed with them he recognized the importance of adhering to law to prevent chaos. He had the attitude of supporting written law whether it be good or bad, but then worked to change that which did more harm than good. On this note he made one of the greatest changes in law in history and became the Great Emancipator, bringing freedom to the slaves.

To have a stable society we must follow Lincoln’s example. We should follow existing law, but then change that which does not work with better law.

If we think immigration law on the books is wrong then we should not ignore it, but work to change it and improve it.

Trump has been strongly criticized for expressing intent to enforce immigration law, even though he says he will create a wide door to let the harmless ones back in. What the critical new agers do not understand is that this is the correct attitude of the true leader in the coming Aquarian Age. Such a leader must be like Lincoln and work with existing law, but then make effort to change it if it is imperfect.

Picking and choosing which laws we will enforce as Bernie and Hillary are doing is not the Aquarian way.

(3) Too many laws and rules. If there are too many laws then confusion results. People will be breaking the law just because they do not even know it exists or the shear number can create frustration and chaos.

An example was Obamacare which consisted of thousands of pages. Few read much of it before voting and afterwards even supporters found problems with the wording.

The key to order is not to pass lots of law but pass essential and just law and then enforce it. Once we realize the importance of this we can begin to create a society worthy of the New Age of Aquarius.

I could go on and write a book on this subject, but this will have to suffice for the moment. There should be enough food for thought here to convince the objective reader that it is wrong headed to just make the knee jerk assumption that Bernie is the herald of the Aquarian Age. A Piscean idealist does not an Aquarian make.

Signs and Symbolism

Book Of Quotes

Inspirational, Spiritual & Metaphysical Quotes

From The Writings Of JJ Dewey

1.  “We must be vigilant to watch for the illusionary signs of our time. They will be obvious 100 years from now, but not today for they will be some of the major beliefs that the majority with power will use to lead men to disaster. Unfortunately, the unthinking masses will believe the signs are leading them to safety.”

2.  “Pisces is a water sign which is a symbol of emotion and Aquarius is an air sign which symbolizes the mind.”

3.  “Aquarius is a fixed sign and air indicating that mind, reasoning and judgment will prevail over blind emotion to bring the many into unity.”

4.  “All symbols are neutral until someone interprets them and that interpretation gives it power.”

5.  “Baptism is a symbol that communicates the principle of rebirth to the inner self. Without this inner rebirth and the release of guilt the Kingdom of God will not be realized.”

6.  “The body of Christ, as mentioned in 1 Corinthians, Chapter 12, is much more than the man Jesus. It is a body composed of many members. Partaking of the symbolic bread is a symbol of joining the body of Christ. Drinking of the wine is a symbol of the one Spirit that gives life to all those linked in the body of Christ.”

7.  “The symbol of the Sacrament (or Eucharist) focuses the inner mind on this principle and can cause a ‘communion’ with the Spirit.”

8.  “A mountain is a symbol of higher consciousness. This is the reason that many adepts in ages past have had their sanctuaries in mountainous areas, for the view of mountains speaks of higher awareness to the inner mind and helps inspire the aspirant in that direction.”

9.  “When the time comes in the far future that the universe will be created on a basis of twelve, then a point of perfect balance will be reached; thus the great symbology and power of twelve as a spiritual number that penetrates the soul into the unseen.”

10.  “Red is a symbol of power, and if it is not tempered with love it becomes the basest of colors and a symbol of great fiery emotion and anger, and desire for control, and, in it’s lowest aspect, a desire to be worshipped as a God.”

11.  “Ironically, two symbols of the New Age are found on the back of the dollar bill.”

12.  “All symbols have a multitude of correspondences which can be applied to the benefit of the truth seeker.”

13.  “The body of man is a symbol of the body of the one great God whose body is the universe.”

14.  “The 144,000 is a symbolic number of the small percentage of followers who see the vision of the initiate as well as a symbol of the perfected energies which flow through the perfected disciple.”

15.  “The [number] 144,000 not only stands for an internal manifestation of energies, but also an external one. Externally, it is a symbolic number of seekers who correctly see and follow the teachings of the initiate over the period of an astrological age of about 2160 years.”

16.  “Gold is a symbol of purification through struggle and advancement obtained by great trial.”

17.  “The wilderness is a symbol of that place ahead of its time where creative thoughts go and abide until the rest of humanity becomes ready for discovery.”

18.  “Often times several people together will see a similar illusion because of their similarity in vibration and expectant outcome.”

19.  “An earthquake is a symbol of a person’s false belief system being broken apart, paving the way for a new one.”

20.  “Baptism is a symbol of the removal of error and making a change in life from the physical to the spiritual.”

21.  “The Ark represents that secret place within yourself where the Spirit of God, and Christ consciousness is found.”

22.  “In the scriptures Babylon is a symbol of a mixture of all peoples, both the Israelites and non-Israelites. The word itself means ‘mixture’ or ‘confusion’.”

23.  “The residual Piscean people are enablers whereas the Aquarian people will empower.”

24.  “There is much wisdom to be gained through an understanding of the fours signs of the fixed cross.”

25.  “Seven years is a symbol of the transition period that those who are polarized in the world of feeling must go through when they are confronted with facts and truth that they can no longer ignore.”

26.  “Because the serpent humanoid is now a symbol of the past, which has served its purpose, there is little need for higher lives to use this form except as a symbol of domination of spirit over matter – the serpent representing matter.”

27.  “The source of life, spirit, light and knowledge in many sacred texts is said to come from the east, not only literally in many instances, but also symbolically.”

28.  “So what is the new song that will be sung by the 144,000? It is a symbol of the change of direction and the fresh outlook one will have to have in order to adapt to the New Age. It is a symbol of synthesis. Only a synthesizer can consistently sing the new song and adapt to the needed changes. All others blend with the crowd or their particular group thoughtform. They cannot make that paradigm shift and look at new situations (disapproved by orthodoxy) with a fresh outlook.”

29.  “Each odd number representing a ray or plane (and even years) is polarized in the positive energy and the even numbers are polarized in the negative energy. Notice that concerning this great number of seven that we have four positive numbers and three negative which gives all creation a domination toward the positive, or the dominating good.”

30.  “When life seems out of control it should be a sign to us that we have taken our attention off the part we should be playing.”

31.  “Tell me why the splitting of the atom is a symbol of the greatest miracle that Jesus ever performed?”

32.  “Babylon signifies confusion because of improper mixing. Those caught in materialism mix in some religion and maybe even a little philanthropy for show to hide their real motives. This mixing of God and mammon creates confusion and illusion that makes it difficult to be delivered into the world of spirit.”

33.  “Our souls are a symbol of the sun and our lower personality is a symbol of the moon with no light of its own.”

34.  “The fact that there are so many belief systems among the New Agers is a sign that Pisces is still working strongly there.”

35.  “The one miracle that is a real sign of a teacher of righteousness is the miracle of the change of the heart and mind of he who discovers the inner Christ through the window of the soul.”

36.  “There are many false teachers and new agers out there who believe they are masters come to earth, but if they proclaim themselves as such it is a sure sign that they are far from being a master, but an ordinary human.”

37.  “True humor is the symbol of the freedom of the soul.”

38.  “A greatly overlooked fact is that a true minister or pastor for Israel is to be a ‘watchman’ who is to watch for the signs of the times and give his people warnings that will ‘save’ or deliver them physically, as well as spiritually.”

39.  “Hitler chose the swastika with the clockwise swirls symbolizing the glorification of matter and material force and his subconscious choice to imprison the Son of God. He also placed the symbol on the LEFT arm signifying his choice of the Left Hand Path, the Dark Path, or the Path that holds light a prisoner.”

40.  “One of the signs of a disciple is that conservatives will see him as liberal and liberals will see him as conservative.”

The New Age

Book Of Quotes

Inspirational, Spiritual & Metaphysical Quotes

From The Discourses Of JJ Dewey

1  We are moving from the Age of Pisces into the Age of Aquarius. We will be securely into this coming new age in about 150 years and most expect this to be an enlightened age of brotherhood and peace as well as human advancement. Right now we are in the transition phase and the division between the old age and new age thinking is coming into greater contrast.

2  We are in the twelfth hour of the labors in the vineyard and many new workers are being hired and coming forth to serve. In many ways their labors now, for this one hour, are considered as valuable as that of the older laborers over thousands of years. Why? Because many of the older laborers are expecting to be the new gurus who will be served and respected. Consequently, they are of little use in the present. The new workers will wind up performing a service of equal value to the combined value of the seasoned ones.

3  Those who are caught up in the glories of the past and sacrifice the possibilities of current joy to the authorities of the past will only enter the New Age kicking and screaming.

4  Those on the cutting edge of the age past are often left behind as the new age begins to dawn.

5  From this time to 2025-30 the seekers will embrace various stages of New Age thought and present it to their peers in an acceptable manner. Some time after 2025-30 will begin the seven years (or periods) of burning the weapons of Gog. During this time the old emotional fires which fight the new age will be consumed and Gog and his armies will find that they are void of instruments with which to fight the Christ consciousness. After the seven years burning, the fundamentalist clinging to a certain creed or dogma will be an oddity for the ignorance of old dogmas will be clearly manifest.

6  The Christ is the building stone of the New Age.

7  If the lights bringing the dawn of the Aquarian Age are to be successful, they must first and foremost survive and stand in their rightful places until the sun arises and shines forth in its strength.

8  Many call the coming age, the Age of Peace, and this will be true on the physical plane, but not on the emotional and mental planes.

9  The New Age will see conflict through debate and discussion as never before, but physical conflict will eventually be seen as primitive and beneath the dignity of the human race.

10  Think you that when Christ comes again He will be the lone teacher here on the earth? Far from it. To usher in the New Age we will need thousands of teachers and many of them need to be here before He manifests again.

11  The shift of attention by humanity from an emotional base for decision to the mind will insure the stability necessary for an age of peace to prevail.

12  Some of the philosophies that will be popular in the New Age are now permeating society to a greater extent than was even hoped for by the disciple of the mid twentieth century.

13  The Aquarian Age switches from water to air. Air is the symbol of mind. The beginnings of this age were manifest at the writing of the Constitution of the United States. We are now about half way into the full manifestation of the New Age.

14  The New Age will be ruled by mind.

15  To move to the Age of Aquarius we must free up the mind and the mind is freed up as freedom itself abounds. This is why basic democratic rights had to be established on the earth before the New Age could come in.

16  In the New Age brought by the Prince of Peace and His disciples the focus will be taken away from mean spirited competition and refocused on cooperation and the cities (polarized systems) will fall and be transformed.

17  We may be entering a new age, but let us not leave behind the basics that many souls have fought and died to preserve and demonstrate.

18  Because Pisces is such an emotional energy and Aquarius so mental the resistance to the New Age by the accepted teachers of the world will be very strong.

19  The natural resistance to the energies of the New Age must be dropped and a new understanding must come.

20  A critical mass composed of the brothers of light must be gathered together to produce the chain reaction to usher in the New Age. As with atoms, so with humans. Without the critical mass almost all the radiating energy is of minimal effect.

21  Without the law of mind, the laws of order, we will have no new age, no order, but only confusion and disorder.

22  I do not know if one can increase public involvement through law, but this certainly needs to be taught and encouraged in the new age.

23  Laws producing an orderly society will not pass away in the new age, but will be refined until they work so efficiently that the whole world will become stable and live in peace.

24  From the New Jerusalem (teachers of light) will go forth with the revelations of the New Age which will be the foundation of the new order of the ages. These revelations will also include many new scientific inventions, healing techniques, mysteries explored and New Age teachings.

25  If mankind changes not and does not shift its thinking to the higher level of the New Age, then physical destruction must come.

26  Those who make right use of sacrifice will make an easy transition into the service of the New Age.

27  One of the important teachings of the New Age will be the restoration of knowledge of the power of female energy, for it is as mysterious as gravity; no form can be held together without it.

28  Pisces is also on the mutable cross which causes a “go with the flow” attitude as far as energy goes. The funny thing is that we often hear this phrase from new age people, not realizing that this is the mantra of the passing age and not the Aquarian Age. Thus the energy of the mutable cross caused the people of the last two thousand years to go with their feelings with very little thought involved.

29  Physical presence establishes a very necessary link for the new teachings and energy to be transmitted.

30  Service in the New Age will be seen in the light of the LAW of cause and effect and karma.

31  Many other sources of energy will be opened up for us in the New Age including the application of the theories of Nicola Tesla.

32  The basic seed of the New Age Plan was presented as far back as the days of Moses and the working principle behind that plan was the gathering principle, or the synthesis of Israel into a greater working whole.

33  Nothing can hold back the establishment of the coming age of peace save our own lethargy.

34  Just as freedom and democracy had to struggle for existence in the midst of totalitarian governments, so will the principles of the New Age have to struggle for a foothold in our present society.

35  Many of the gurus and new age people we see around sway people by their personalities. The New Age Disciple must get beyond the personality and what we need to look at is the pure words and how they affect your spirit.
