"Go to Prepare for the Time After the End." The call is for sane and normal men, women and children who can comprehend the situation, face what must be done, and then give their daily lives to expressing for the world the qualities of the citizens of the kingdom of Souls / Thinkers: love, knowledge to wisdom for the one human race, non-critical of another, non-separativeness and freedom from hatreds and partisan, creedal beliefs.
When such men can be gathered together in large numbers on the mental [/conscious thought] & astral [/desire/emotional] planes (and they are gathering/activating rapidly) we shall have the fulfilment of "On earth peace, good will toward men.
brother(s)/hood, son(s), he/him/himself/his, man, men etc. is a transmittive mental symbol in toto’ is an inclusive spiritual term for FEMALE & MALE aspirants-on-up-to-the-highest-Chohan.
Race- the one human race, not the separative human sub-races based upon the false premise of COLOUR , geography, religious system, etc..
Karma is not so far removed from human control. For ages men-women-children have generated energies which must inevitably produce events upon the physical plane, evoke response upon the plane of the emotions, and induce mental reactions.
It is here that Natural Law and the Law of Karma meet and interact upon each other and is today producing great changes in nature. Conditions have been set in motion which must now work out to their predestined end. There are many people today who find an alibi for themselves and a consequent release from definite action and responsibility, by saying it is simply karma / the working out of cause and effect, nothing, therefore, that they can do about it. In so doing they overlook the third aspect of this same law, given the name of freewill .
It is the right use of freewill and its understanding expression which must eventually straighten out and adjust the working out of karma and transmute that which now works such evil and havoc in the world into a demonstration of good and of the successful foundation for the pursuit of true harmonic "livingry"… 2bcontinued… wsw
Ceremonial Order /or Magic 1.0
A particular incarnation is not an isolated event in the life of the soul, but is a part and an aspect of a sequence of experiences which are intended to lead to one, clear, definite goal_ the goal of free choice and a deliberate return out of matter to spirit and eventual liberation.
There has been much talk among esotericists (particularly in the Eastern presentation of the Path to Reality) anent liberation. The goal held before the neophyte is liberation, freedom, emancipation; this, by and large, is the keynote of life itself. The concept is a transitting out of the realm of the purely selfish and of personal liberation into something much wider and more important. This concept of liberation lies behind the modern use of the word "liberty" but is far wiser, better and deeper in its connotation. Liberty, in the minds of many, is freedom from the imposition of any man's rule, freedom to do as one wishes, to think as one determines and to live as one chooses. This is as it should be, provided that one's wishes, choices, thoughts and desires are free from selfishness and are dedicated to the good of the whole. This is, as yet, very seldom so.
Liberation is much more than all this; it is freedom from the past, freedom to move forward along certain predetermined lines (predetermined by the soul), freedom to express all the divinity of which one is capable as an individual, or which a nation can present to the world.
There have been in the history of the past two thousand years, four great symbolic happenings which have sequentially presented (to those who have eyes to see, ears to hear and minds to interpret) the theme of liberation_ and not simply of liberty.
1. The life of Christ Himself. He, for the first time, presented the idea of the sacrifice of the unit, consciously and deliberately offered for the service of the whole. There had been other World Saviours, but the issues involved had not so clearly been expressed, because the mind of man-w-c had not been ready to grasp the implications. service is the keynote of liberation. Christ was the ideal Server.
2. The signing of the Magna Charta. This document was signed at Runnymede, during the reign of King John on June 15th, 1215, A.D. Here the idea of liberation from authority was presented with the emphasis upon the personal liberty and rights of the individual. The growth and development of this basic idea, mental concept and formulated perception falls into four phases or chapters: a. The signing of the Magna Charta, emphasising personal liberty. b. The founding of the French Republic with its emphasis upon human liberty. c. The Declaration of Independence and the Bill of Rights, determining national policy. d. The Atlantic Charter and the Four Freedoms, bringing the whole question into the international field, and guaranteeing to men-women-children everywhere in the world liberty and freedom to develop the divine reality within themselves.
The ideal has gradually become clarified so that today the mass of men-women-children everywhere know what are the basic essentials of happiness.
3. The Emancipation of the Slaves. The spiritual idea of human liberty, which had become a recognised ideal, became a demanding desire, and a great symbolic happening took place_ the slaves were freed. Like all things which human beings enact, perfection is nonexistent. The Blaq/Negro is not free in "the land of the free", and America will have to clean house in this respect; to put it in clear concise words, the U.S.A. must see to it that the Constitution and the Bill of Rights are facts and not a dream. Only thus can the inevitable working of The Law of Karma be offset. The Blaqz/Negroes are Americans, as well as the Wytez/New Englanders and all other stocks which are not indigenous in this country, and the Constitution is theirs also. As yet the privileges it confers are withheld by those who are the slaves of selfishness and fear.
4. The Liberation of Humanity by the United Nations. We are participating in a great spectacular and symbolic happening and are watching it in process. The liberation of the individual has moved onward through the symbolic liberation of a section of humanity (the remnants of the first two races, the Lemurian and the Atlantean) to the liberation of millions of human beings, enslaved by the forces of evil, by millions of their fellow men-women-children. The ideal has worked through into a practical worldwide effort upon the physical plane and has demanded worldwide sacrifice. It has involved the entire three worlds of human evolution, and for this reason the Christ can now lead His \ Her forces and aid human beings to liberate mankind.
What has really been happening, therefore, in the lives of individuals, in the lives of nations and in the life of humanity? A tremendous move to put right most ancient evil, to offset consciously the Law of Cause and Effect by a recognition of the causes in the personal, national and international worlds which have produced the effects under which humanity today suffers.
The Law of Karma is today a great and incontrovertible fact in the consciousness of humanity everywhere. They may not call it by that name, but they are well aware that in all today's events the nations are reaping what they sowed. This great law_ at one time a theory_ is not a proven fact and a recognised factor in human thinking. The question "Why?" so frequently asked brings in the factor of cause and effect with constant inevitability. The concepts of heredity and of environment are efforts to explain existing human conditions; qualities, racial characteristics, national temperaments and ideals prove the fact of some initiating world of causes. Historical conditions, the relationships between nations, social taboos, religious convictions and tendencies can all be traced to originating causes_ some of them most ancient. Everything that is happening in the world today and which is so potently affecting humanity_ things of beauty and of horror, modes of living and civilisation and culture, prejudices and likings, scientific attainment and artistic expression and the many ways in which humanity throughout the planet colours existence are aspects of effects, initiated somewhere, on some level at some time, by human beings, both individually and en masse.
Karma is therefore that which man/woman_ the Heavenly Man in whom we live, humanity as a whole, mankind in groups as nations, and individual man_ has instituted, carried forward, endorsed, omitted to do or has done right through the ages until the present moment. Today, the harvest is ripe and mankind is reaping what it has sown, preparatory to a fresh ploughing in the springtime of the New Age, with a fresh sowing of the seed which will (let us pray/work and hope/vision) produce a better harvest.
The outstanding evidence of the Law of Cause and Effect is the Jewish race. All nations prove this Law, but we choose to refer to the Hebrew peoples because their history is so well known and their future and their destiny are subjects of worldwide, universal concern. The Jews have always had a symbolic significance; they sum up in themselves_ as a nation, down the ages_ the depths of human evil and the heights of human divinity. Their aggressive history as narrated in the Old Testament is on a par with present-day German accomplishment; yet Christ was a Jew and it was the Hebrew race which produced Him. Let this never be forgotten. The Jews were great aggressors; they despoiled the Egyptians and they took the Promised Land at the point of the sword, sparing neither man, woman nor child. Their religious history has been built around a materialistic Jehovah, possessive, greedy and endorsing and encouraging aggression. Their history is symbolic of the history of all aggressors, rationalising themselves into the belief that they are carrying out divine purpose, wresting away from people their property in a spirit of self-defense and finding some reason, adequate to them, to excuse the iniquity of their action. Palestine was taken by the Jews because it was "a land flowing with milk and honey," and the claim was made that the act was undertaken in obedience to divine command. Later, the symbolism gets most interesting. They divided into two halves: the Israelites with headquarters at Samaria, and the Jews (meaning two or three special tribes out of the twelve) locating around Jerusalem. Dualism ran through their religious beliefs; they were schooled by the Sadducees or the Pharisees, and these two groups were in constant conflict. Christ came as a member of the Jewish race and they renounced Him.
Today the law is working, and the Jews are paying the price, factually and symbolically, for all they have done in the past. They are demonstrating the far-reaching effects of the Law. Factually and symbolically, they stand for culture and civilisation; factually and symbolically, they are humanity; factually and symbolically, they stand as they have ever chosen to stand, for separation. They regard themselves as the chosen people and have an innate consciousness of that high destiny, forgetting their symbolic role and that it is Humanity which is the chosen people and not one small and unimportant fraction/race of the race. Factually and symbolically, they long for unity and cooperation, yet know not how to cooperate; factually and symbolically, they are the "Eternal Pilgrim"; they are mankind, wandering through the mazes of the three worlds of human evolution, and gazing with longing eyes towards a promised land; factually and symbolically, they resemble the mass of men, refusing to comprehend the underlying spiritual purpose of all material phenomena, rejecting the Christ within (as they did centuries ago the Christ within their borders), grasping for material good and steadily rejecting the things of the spirit. They demand the so-called restitution of Palestine, wresting it away from those who have inhabited it for many centuries; and by their continued emphasis upon material possession they lose sight of the true solution, which is that, symbolically and factually again, they must be assimilated into all the nations, and fused with all the races, thus demonstrating recognition of the One Humanity.
It is interesting to note that the Judah\Jews who inhabited southern Palestine, and whose chief city was Jerusalem, have succeeded in doing this and have fused with and been assimilated by the British, the Dutch and the French in a way that the Israelites, ruled from Samaria, have never done. We commend this to you for your consideration.
If the Jewish race would recall, therefore, their high symbolic destiny, and if the rest of humanity would see themselves in the Jewish people, and if both groups would emphasise the fact of human stock and cease thinking of themselves in terms of national and racial units, the Karma of humanity would radically change from the retributive Karma of the present to the recompensing good Karma of the future.
Regarding this question from the long range vision (looking backward historically as well as forward hopefully), the problem is one to which the Jews themselves must make the larger contribution. They have never yet faced candidly and honestly (as a race) the problem of why the many nations, from the time of the Egyptians, have neither liked nor wanted them. It has always been the same down the centuries. Yet there must be some reason, inherent in the people themselves, when the reaction is so general and universal. Their approach to their direful problem has been one of supplication, or of distressed complaint, or of unhappy despair. Their demand has been for the Gentile nations to put the matter right, and many Gentiles have attempted to do so. Until, however, the Jews themselves face up to the situation and admit that there may be for them the working out of the retributive aspect of the Law of Cause and Effect, and until they endeavour to ascertain what it is in them, as a race, which has initiated their ancient and dire fate, this basic world issue will remain as it has been since the very night of time. That within the race there are and have been great, good, just and spiritual men-women-children is unalterably true. A generalisation is never a complete expression of the truth. But, viewing the problem of the Jews in time and space, in history and today, the points which we have made will bear careful consideration by the Jews.
What we have said in no way mitigates the guilt of those who have so sorely abused the Jews. You have a proverb, have you not? that "two wrongs do not make a right." The behaviour of the nations towards the Jews, culminating in the atrocities of the second quarter of the twentieth century, have no excuse. The law must inevitably work. Though much that has happened to the Jews originated in their past history and in their pronounced attitude of separativeness and nonassimilability, and in their emphasis upon material good, yet the agents who have brought the evil Karma upon them equally incur the retributive aspect of the same law; the situation has now assumed the form of a vicious circle of error and wrong doing, of retribution and revenge, and in view of this the time must come when together the nations will confer upon this problem, and together they will cooperate to bring to an end the wrong attitudes on both sides. All Karma of evil nature is solved by the presentation of an accepting will, a cooperative love, a frank acknowledgment of responsibility and a skillful adjustment of united joint activity to bring about the good of humanity as a whole, and not just the good of an individual nation or people or race. The Jewish problem will not be solved by taking possession of Palestine, by plaint and demand and by financial manipulations. That would be but the prolongation of ancient wrong and material possessiveness. The problem will be solved by the willingness of the Jew to conform to the civilisation, the cultural background and the standards of living of the nation to which_ by the fact of birth and education_ he/she is related and with which he/she should assimilate. It will come by the relinquishment of pride of race and of the concept of selectivity; it will come by renouncing dogmas and customs which are intrinsically obsolete and which create points of constant irritation to the matrix within which the Jew finds him/herself; it will come when selfishness in business relations and the pronounced manipulative tendencies of the Hebrew people are exchanged for more selfless and honest forms of activity.
The Jew, owing to his/her rays and point of development, is outstandingly creative and artistic. This he/she must recognise and not seek as he/she now does to dominate in all fields, to grasp all opportunities away from other people, and so better him/herself and his/her own people at the expense of others. Release from the present situation will come when the Jew forgets that he/she is a Jew and becomes in his/her inmost consciousness an Italian, an American, a Britisher, a German, Afriqan or a Pole. This is not so at this time. The Jewish problem will be solved by intermarriage; that of the Afriqan / Negro / Blaq will not. This will mean concession and compromise on the part of the orthodox Jews_ not the concession of expediency but the concession of conviction.
Let us point out also that just as the Kabbalah and the Talmud are secondary lines of esoteric approach to truth, and materialistic in their technique (embodying much of the magical work of relating one grade of matter to the substance of another grade), so the Old Testament is emphatically a secondary Scripture, and spiritually does not rank with the Bhagavad-Gita, the ancient Scriptures of the East and the New Testament. Its emphasis is material and its effect is to impress a purely materialistic Jehovah upon world consciousness. The general theme of the Old Testament is the recovery of the highest expression of the divine wisdom in the first solar system; that system embodied the creative work of the third aspect of divinity_ that of active intelligence, expressing itself through matter. In this solar system, the created world is intended to be the expression of the second aspect, of the love of God. This the Jew has never grasped, for the love expressed in the Old Testament is the separative, possessive love of Jehovah for a distinct unit within the fourth / human kingdom. St. Paul summed up the attitude which humanity should assume in the words: "There is neither Jew nor Gentile." The evil Karma of the Jew today is intended to end his/her isolation, to bring him/her to the point of relinquishing material goals, of renouncing a nationality that has a tendency to be somewhat parasitic within the boundaries of other nations, and to express inclusive love, instead of separative unhappiness.
And what of the Gentile attitude? It is absolutely necessary that the nations meet the Jew more than half way when he/she arrives at altering_ slowly and gradually_ his/her nationalistic orthodoxy. It is essential that they cease from fear and persecution, from hatred and from placing barriers to cooperation. The growing anti-Semitic feeling in the world is inexcusable in the sight of God and man. We refer not here to the abominable cruelties of the obsessed German people. Behind that lies a history of Atlantean relationships into which it is needless for us to enter because we could not prove to you the truth of our statements. We refer to the history of the past two thousand years and to the everyday behaviour of Gentile people everywhere. There must be a definite effort upon the part of the nationals of every country to assimilate the Jews, to inter-marry with them, and to refuse to recognise as barriers old habits of thought and ancient bad relations. Men-women-children everywhere must regard it as a blot upon their national integrity if there is the appearance within their borders of the old duality_ Jew and Gentile. There is neither Jew nor Gentile; there is only Humanity. This war (1914-1945) should be regarded as having brought to a conclusion the ancient enmity between Jew and Gentile, and the two groups have now the opportunity to originate a newer and happier measure of living and a truly cooperative relation on either side. The process of assimilation will be slow, for the situation is of so ancient a date that habits of thought, customary attitudes and separative customs are well established and hard to overcome. But the needed changes can be made if goodwill directs the spoken word, the written presentation and the mode of living together. The Hierarchy sees no distinction. The Head of the Hierarchy, though not in a Jewish body at this time, achieved the highest spiritual goal for humanity whilst in a Jewish vehicle. The Hierarchy is also sending into Jewish bodies certain noos who will work with full intent at the changing of the situation. There are Jews today, a few in number, who do not think in terms of being Jews; who are not preoccupied with the Jewish problem to the exclusion of all else, and who are endeavouring to fuse all people into one humanity, thus bridging the gap.
Again, we say, that the Masters of the Wisdom see neither Jew nor Gentile, but only souls and sons / daughters of God.
In dealing with the subject of Karma as a factor_ decisive and lasting in both disease and health_ one of the criticisms to which our approach is subjected is that we deal too much with generalities and that we give no specific and detailed analysis of particular diseases, particularly of the great basic diseases which today take such a toll of humanity and which are not fundamentally being curbed. We do not deal with their symptoms or their cure, and we indicate not techniques whereby they may be handled. This we feel is a criticism with which we should deal, so that you may proceed with your study under no misapprehension. This is an appropriate point at which to stop and meet this contention. Karma is necessarily a topic which is general and not specific; it is not yet accepted in the psyientific sense by the general public. It must be considered along broad lines until such time that the Law of Cause and Effect is accepted as a major conditioning factor in the human consciousness, not only on a large scale but in relation to individual lives. Of this Law, the public is yet, as a whole, ignorant.
