DK and Nuclear Energy

Dropping the Atomic Bomb on Japan

Even though this action was taken by a Democrat, according to a Pew poll published Aug 2015 only 52% of Democrats think it was justified while 74% of Republicans do.

Again DK sides with the Right on this as he strongly supported the dropping of the bomb.

“They (the Japanese) will be and are being defeated by physical war measures and by the destruction physically of their war potential and the death of the form aspect. This destruction … and the consequent release of their imprisoned souls, is a necessary happening; it is the justification of the use of the atomic bomb upon the Japanese population. The first use of this released energy has been destructive, but I would remind you that it has been the destruction of forms and not the destruction of spiritual values and the death of the human spirit – as was the goal of the Axis effort.

“That atomic bomb (though used only twice destructively) ended the resistance of the powers of evil because its potency is predominantly etheric.” Externalisation of the Hierarchy, Pages 495-6, 548

 

Atomic Energy

Next we come to peaceful uses of atomic power. It is interesting that DK predicted this as a positive thing long before the creation of nuclear power plants. He said this in the Treatise on Cosmic Fire which was published in 1925:

“When the energy of water and of the atom is harnessed for the use of man, our present types of factories, our methods of navigation and of transportation, such as steamers and railway apparatus, will be entirely revolutionised.” Treatise on Cosmic Fire Pg 910

Here he not only predicted here the positive use of nuclear power but the extracting of power from water. Scientists are currently working on economical ways of separating hydrogen from water and using it to power our homes and vehicles. Nuclear power could be a key to making this feasible.

He also said this about 100 yeas ago:

“The investigations of scientists have been greatly stimulated by the discovery of radium, which is an electrical phenomenon of a certain kind, and by the knowledge this discovery brought of the radioactive substances; the development of the many methods of utilising electricity has also greatly aided. This science has brought man to the threshold of a discovery which will revolutionise world thought on these matters, and which will eventually solve a great part of the economic problem, thus leaving many more persons free for mental growth and work. This expansion of knowledge can be looked for before one hundred and fifty years have transpired.” Treatise on Cosmic Fire, Page 809

And then this:

“man will eventually come to the realisation that in atomic energy, harnessed to his need, or in the INDUCING OF INCREASED RADIOACTIVITY, LIES FOR HIM THE PATH TO PROSPERITY AND RICHES.”

Treatise on Cosmic Fire, Page 496

So then according to DK we should be well on or way to abundant and economical energy that will virtually eliminate poverty in the world by 2075. But other writings indicate that we should have made much greater progress by now because humanity advanced faster than expected and made a “premature discovery of the release of atomic energy.” Rays and Initiations, Page 412

Near the end of his work with Alice A. Bailey DK expressed a very positive view of the nuclear technology that developed and had high hopes for it in the near future. He said this about nuclear power in the later years:

“Then—as time goes on—this liberated energy will usher in the new civilisation, the new and better world and the finer, more spiritual conditions. The highest dreams of those who love their fellowmen can become practical possibilities through the right use of this liberated energy, if the real values are taught, emphasised and applied to daily living. This ‘saving force’ has now been made available by science, and my earlier prophecy substantiated.” Externalization of the Hierarchy, Page 497

DK was very positive about nuclear power which unfortunately has become a strong political issue. So which political side supports the DK stance, the political left or the right?

Again we find the right is more in alignment than the left.

According to Gallup in March of 2019 65% of Republicans compared to 42% of Democrats favor use of nuclear energy. 34% of Republicans oppose it while 57% of the Democrats do. Republicans, College Graduates and Men Most Supportive of Nuclear Power. LINK

For generations now the Right has been a much bigger supporter of atomic power for the generation of electricity than has been the Left who have often strongly opposed it with protests and lawsuits. The major opposition has always come from the left, not the right and all the anti nuclear groups donate almost exclusively to the left and not the political right.

Amazingly DK predicted strong opposition to this energy source.

“the vested interests, the big cartels, trusts and monopolies that controlled the past few decades, preceding this world war, will mobilise their resources and fight to the death to prevent the extinction of their sources of income; they will not permit, if they can help it, the passing of the control of this illimitable power into the hands of the masses, to whom it rightly belongs. The selfish interests among the big stockholders, the banking firms and the wealthy organised churches will oppose all change, except in so far as it will benefit them and bring more financial gain to their coffers.

“Signs of this opposition can already be seen in the utterances of certain powerful men who are today encouraging a gloomy outlook in London and in Washington and elsewhere;” Externalization of the Hierarchy, Page 493

Some may read this and say that the opposition is not from big money interests but from environmentalists. What is not realized is that environmental groups worldwide receive billions of dollars to promote their agendas and those who would lose the most with abundant nuclear power will funnel money and influence to stop nuclear development.

Power brokers have also used many media sources to scare the people away from supporting nuclear energy

Some would think that DK was mistaken in thinking that atomic power would be economical. Few realize how correct he would have been if not for the tremendous resistance it has received and roadblocks put in the way with every lawsuit that could be conjured up. The great resistance caused the construction costs of plants to increase up to sixteen times the original budget. If nuclear energy were to have been allowed to develop naturally it would now be the most economical source of power. Instead, powerful forces from the left have deceived the public and frustrated development.

The red tape and costs became so great that nuclear development came to a standstill and the great opportunity hoped for from DK has been put on hold.

If not for the great opposition from the Left we could have economical and safe nuclear power.

Yes, safe. Science has solved most of the problems with nuclear energy and we can now build safe reactors that can even recycle their waste.

Then on the horizon we will see other forms of nuclear energy. We are on the verge of creating safe fusion reactors. Because of the delays caused by high resistance it looks like DK’s original date of around 2075 may turn out to be the time of liberating atomic energy, despite humanity getting a jumpstart on its development due to World War II.

I’ll end this segment with some additional quotes from DK on nuclear energy. Indeed he saw it as a positive thing we were supposed to embrace and perfect.

“The destroyer aspect was therefore the first aspect (of the first Ray) to take effect. It split the thought-form of materialistic living (which was governing and controlling humanity everywhere) upon the mental plane and, at the same time, it produced a great agent of destruction upon the physical plane.

“Thus was the new era ushered in; thus was the stage set for a better future. This was the intent and the purpose of Those Who compose the Council Chamber of the Lord. It rests with humanity itself to take advantage of the proffered opportunity which this destructive manifestation made possible.” Rays and Initiations, Page 647

“On the physical plane, the great scientific discovery, called colloquially the ‘splitting of the atom,’ will be turned eventually to the production of those conditions which will enable mankind to follow the good, the beautiful and the true. This men will then be able to do, freed from the dread presence of purely materialistic thinking. This is no idle vision or vague dream. Many scientists today (and particularly those who love their fellowmen) are not only visioning the non-destructive aspect of atomic energy but are already engaged in harnessing-for the good of humanity — some of its products and its radioactive properties.”

Rays & Initiations,” Pg 648

“As the forerunner of that release of energy which will change the mode of human living and inaugurate the new age wherein we shall not have civilisations and their emerging cultures but a world culture and an emerging civilisation, thus demonstrating the true synthesis which underlies humanity. The atomic bomb emerged from a first ray Ashram, working in conjunction with a fifth ray group; from the long range point of view, its intent was and is purely beneficent.” Externalisation of the Hierarchy, Page 548

“Conditions will be basically altered; along certain lines, such as the distribution of coal and oil for lighting, heating and transportation, is it not possible that in the future neither of these planetary resources will be required? These are two instances of the fundamental changes which the use of atomic energy may make in future civilized living.” Problems of Humanity, Page 66

“This release of (atomic) energy will eventually make money, as we know it, of no moment whatsoever; money has proved itself (owing to man’s limitations) a producer of evil and the sower of dissension and discontent in the world. This new released energy can prove itself a “saving force” for all mankind, releasing from poverty, ugliness, degradation, slavery and despair; it will destroy the great monopolies, take the curse out of labour, and open the door into that golden age for which all men wait. It will level all the artificial layers of modern society and liberate men from the constant anxiety and gruelling toil which have been responsible for so much disease and death. When these new and better conditions are established, then men will be free to live and move in beauty and to seek the “Lighted Way.” Externalization of the Hierarchy, Page 500

“Then—as time goes on—this liberated energy will usher in the new civilisation, the new and better world and the finer, more spiritual conditions. The highest dreams of those who love their fellowmen can become practical possibilities through the right use of this liberated energy, if the real values are taught, emphasised and applied to daily living. This “saving force” has now been made available by science, and my earlier prophecy substantiated. *** The constructive use of this energy and its harnessing for the betterment of humanity is its real purpose; this living energy of substance itself, hitherto shut up within the atom and imprisoned in these ultimate forms of life, can be turned wholly into that which is good and can bring about such a revolutionising of the modes of human experience that (from one angle alone) it will necessitate and bring about an entirely new economic world structure.*** Its right use can abolish destitution, bring civilised comfort (and not useless luxury) to all upon our planet; its expression in forms of right living, if motivated by right human relations, will produce beauty, warmth, colour, the abolition of the present forms of disease, the withdrawal of mankind from all activities which involve living or working underground, and will bring to an end all human slavery, all need to work or fight for possessions and things, and will render possible a state of life which will leave man free to pursue the higher aims of the Spirit.” Externalization of the Hierarchy, Page 497

“We are on the verge of entering a new era in scientific unfoldment, owing to the discovery of how to release the energy of the atom. Not even the scientists responsible for the discovery have the faintest idea of the far-reaching effects of this momentous happening. From the angle of our subject and the theme of this volume, an entirely new language related to energy and force is already in the making: the use of the discovery in the handling of disease will, in almost the immediate future (from the occult angle) be regarded as little short of miraculous.” Esoteric Healing, Page 713
