Initiation, Human and Solar
The theme of 'initiation' appears in various relationships throughout this
series of books. An initiation is an expansion of consciousness-a means of
opening the mind and heart to a recognition of what already exists in
reality. It is, therefore, a result of the ability to transcend those
glamours and illusions which veil the truth and limit the consciousness.
As a living process, initiation is experienced by all forms of life, from
the universal to the particular.
One of the great values of this book is that it does stretch the mind
towars a new conception of the intense activity involved at all levels of
consciousness on the planet to create condisions in which evolutionary
growth can proceed. The work of the planetary Hierarchy, and of some of
the responsible workers within the Hierarchy, is outlined in a way which
brings everyday human life into focus as an outer expression of qualified
purpose through the Ashrams of the Masters. The three departments of
Hierarchy form important planetary focal points of cosmic energy flow, each
one imbued with purpose and responsible for an aspect of the Plan of God.
The inter-relationship and interaction of the many kingdoms and centres of
consciousness are revealed aas tending towards the complete integration and
alignment of our Planetary Logos within the systemic whole.
...Essentially the individual aspirant treading the Path of Discipleship
is thrown back on his own inner spiritual resources as the only means by
which progress can be made and consciousness expanded. This he does to the
extent that he becomes sensitive and responsive to energy wielded and
projected by Hierarchy.
A disciple is "one who serves"-eventually one who serves "the One". So
the vast, dazzling and glorious process of evolution and initiation opens
out in the depths and in the silence of the soul, and the disciple learns
to relinquish all self-seeking-even for personal spiritual experience-and
becomes absorbed with others in the service of the Plan.
Letters on Occult Meditation
We have a recognised cleavage to be bridged in the workd today,
usually known as the cleavage between "East and West", but termied more
accurately between "Orient and Occident". Behind the differences in
culture, tradition, religion, ideology and social custons, hovwver, there
is a growing interchange of thought and mental understanding. One
powerfule stimulation to this mental rapport may be in an increasing
tendency for the westerner to cultivat the science of meditation long
practiced in the East as an essential part of religious and spiritual
experience. In this day and age, and as we maove on into mentally oriented
age of Aquarius, with increasing numbers of men and women transferring from
an emotional to a mental focus, the science of meditation as mind training
techmique in concentration and invocation will become increasingly
practiced in the West.
However, there are deeper and more profound areas of life and
consciousness to be penetrated and revealed in meditation. Meditation, in
the occult sense, is not only a training technique for the mind, but a
means of achieving alignment, union and identification with the sould, with
the Christ, and ultimately with "the Father". As distinct from the
experience of mystical union, occult meditation establishes a scientific
process by which causes set in motion will product identifiable effects,
which can be repeated at will. This is a technique to be mastered by the
mind; it involves intense mental activity followed by an absolute
stillness, with the ability so to control and order the mind that it
engages in action or becomes stilled to "reflection" at will.
The first purpose of this form of meditation os the conscious integration
of soul and personality, so that the livingness of the soul may impress and
influence the quality of the personality life. This draws a man steadily
into that centre of consciousness within the planet we call the spiritual
Hierarchy, the Kingdom of God; the spiritual Man then assumes control, and
the divine potential is unfolded.
Since we are dealing in meditation with energy flow which is literally
fiery and impersonal, there are pitfalls and dangers to be understood and
avoided; these, too, are discussed. And also the colours and sounds
corresponding to the various ray energies which, occultly speaking, are
vibrations of different frequencies.
In looking towards the future, the author predicts the growing
influence of the science of meditation, leading eventually to the
establishing of schools of meditation under the guidance and instruction of
intiated disciples. These schools will be of two kinds: one,preparatory;
and the other actually training the student for initiation. The ultimate
objective of these comprehensive training schools will be to provide
qualified disciples for planetary service-the spontaneous effect of soul
contact in the selflessly motivated disciple.
"The motive may be epitomised in these few words: The sacrifice of
the personal self for the good of the One Self.
The method may be also be shortly put: Wise control of the
personality, and discrimination in work and time.
The resultant attitude will be: Complete dispassion, and a growing
love of the unseen and the real.
All this will be consummated through steady application to occult
A Treatise on White Magic
Throughout the whole of this series of books runs a
single thread uniting various aspects of life and specialised
activities within the Plan for man. This is the thread of
consciousness evolving in man through the efforts of the soul to
contact and control its personality equipment; and evolving within the
planet as the centre Hierarchy becomes increasingly able to impress the
Plan on the minds of men.
This book contains the Fifteen Rules for Magic, and for soul
control, based on these words in the Bhagavad Gita: "Though I am
Unborn, the Soul that passes not away, though I am the Lord of Being,
yet as Lord over Mynature I become manifest, through the magical power
of the Soul."
The soul unmanifest is its essential being, manifest through the
nature of its personality equipment, is always a source of mystery. It
evades the analytical concrete mind; it reveals its true self to the
illumined mind fused with the open heart, seeking not to grasp and to
hold for personal progress, but to wield the magical power in service.
The power of the soul is always available to the one who seeks, as an
aspirant to accepted discipleship, to become of practical service in
his own peculiar times, state and environment.
The teaching in this book is based on four fundamental postulates
1. Teach the laws of spiritual psychology as distinguished from
mental and emotional psychology.
2. Make clear the nature of the soul of man and its systemic and
cosmic relationships. This will include its group relationship as a
3. Demonstrate the relations between the self and the sheaths
which that self may use, and thus clarify thought as to the
constitution of man.
4. Elucidate the problem of supernormal powers and give the rules
for their safe and useful development.
Through these underlying postulates runs the theme of ENERGY, of
the one informing life as a centre of energy, pervading and uniting all
within the divine flow. Man is essentially and inherently divine; and
the sould, the centre of consciousness, the result of the pervasive
union of Spirit with matter, is the means whereby man evolves a
consciousness of divinity and unity, redeems the gross matter of his
vehicles and liberates the pure flame of life energy from the
limitation of form. The soul is the vital link, therefore, between God
The book closes with a rousing call to the soul in all aspirants:
"I close with an appeal to all who read these instructions, to rally
their forces, to renew their vows of dedication to the service of
humanity, to subordinate their own ideas and wishes to the group good,
to take their eyes off themselves and fix them anew upon the vision....
Let all students make up their minds in this day of emergency and of
opportunity to sacrifice all they have to the helping of humanity....I
call upon all of you to join the strenuous efforts of the Great Ones."
A Treatise on Cosmic FIre
Although this book was one of the first to be written by Alice Bailey
in collaboration with the Tibetan, it is probably the most timeless,
profound and least understood. A Treatise on Cosmic Fire deals with the
underlying structure of occult teaching for the present era, with vast
cosmic processes reproduced through all areas of life from universe to
atom. It is, therefore, no book for the proof-demanding concrete mind, or
for those who dabble in the spectacular and the phenomenal. The true
student, however, the seriously applied aspirant will find his mind
stimulated and his consciousness expanded.
The book is dedicated to Helena Petrovna Blavatsky, and is said to be
"the psychological key to the Cosmic Creation". Certainly in its
revelation of relationship and correspondences throughout the Cosmos, all
aspects of life unfolding through consciousness are included, based on the
aphorism-"Having pervaded the entire universe with one fragment of Myself,
The One Life manifests through all form within the universe as fiery
energy; and the three main streams of cosmic energy, differentiated into
seven systemic rays, are shown in relation to the three aspects of fire
controlling all manifested life: Electric Fire, the Fire of Spirit; Solar
Fire, the Fire of Mind; Fire by Friction, the Internal FIres.
A large section of the book is directed to a detailed exposition of
Solar Fire, the Fire of Mind, since this is the dominant energy to be
understood and controlled during this second solar system. The cosmic Laws
operating through the system are shown in relation to the lesser laws of
planetary origin and the laws of nature, operating through substance, as
distinct from the life and the consciousness of the planet.
In her foreword to the book, the author mentions a five-fold purpose
within its teaching; briefly (a) To provide a compact and skeleton outline
of a scheme of cosmology, philosophy and psychology which may serve as a
reference and textbook; (b) As an elucidation of the relation between
Spirit and Matter, demonstration as consciousness; (c) To show the coherent
development of all that is found within a solar system and to demonstrate
that EVERYTHING evolves; (d) To give practical information about focal
points of energy found in the etheric bodies of the Solar Logos, the
macrocosm, and of man, the microcosm; (e) To give some information of the
place and work of those sentient lives who form the essence of objectivity,
and to indicate the nature of the Hierarchies of Existence who form out of
their own substance all that is seen and known.
These five objectives, and more, the book encompasses; for the effect
in the individual consciousness is such that theories become transcended
and the mind begins to experience through contemplative thought what the
words on paper reveal to the intelligence. The finite human mind can touch
its cosmic origins and its fiery essence when it opens to the three cosmmic
Laws of Synthesis, of Attraction and of Economy.
The fire of love, the flame of life within the heart, is the
touchstone for all intuitive thought, and the alchemist to the dense
materiality of gross substance.
A Treatise on the Seven Rays (Volumes I - V)
Esoteric Psychology - Vol. 1
lar system, our planet and all that lives and moves within its orbit. Of
the specialised subjects presented in these books, two volumes are
concerned with esoteric psychology-the first in relation to basic energy
patters and structures; the second particularly applied to the soul and the
personality of man and to the working out of the Plan for humanity.
The "psyche" is, after all, the human soul, the centre of
consciousness. Esoteric psychology begins with a consideration of the
human being AS A SOUL, manifesting in the form of a personality, consisting
of mental, emotional and etheric/physical substance.
From the point of view of esoteric psychology, evolution is the
evolution of consciousness, by which the imbedded fragment of the soul
within the personality progressively identifies its sipritual source and
becomes at-one with it.
In this volume of Esoteric Psychology...the Seven Rays are shown as
the Seven Creative Builders, each one imbued with purpose and power,
functioning together as s synthesis in occult obedience to the purposes our
Such a detailed and comprehensive study of the ray energies
influencing our planetary life and all kingdoms in nature is of inestimable
value to the aspirant consciously preparing himself to become of planetary
service as he learns to serve and to unite with his fellowmen.
Esoteric Psychology - Volume II
The second volume of Esoteric Psychology deals exhaustively with the ray
qualities controlling the life, consciousness and appearance of a human
being on the physical plane. Every man in his totality is subject to the
laws of evolution by which he proceeds from the One to the many and back to
the One, enriched by the experience of life in form and capable of
contributing the results of that experience to the larger life which
Because the process of evolution is one of expansion in consciousness
towards the centre of the One Life, and individual becomes increasingly
identified with larger and larger areas of group consciousness; with the
family and community group; with the nation; with the world and with the
one humanity; with the soul and the ashramic group; and ultimately with
those centres of consciousness we identify as Hierarchy, the planetary
heart inspiring the Plan; and with Shamballa, the planetary head centre of
purpose, will and intention. This is a long process of discipleship growth
and of service response to the requirements of the Plan and the needs of
This book, therefore, includes much comment and teaching of the utmost
value to the disciple in training for world service, learning to take his
place within that subjectively united and organised group of disciples
discussed in this volume as "the new group of world servers". Group
consciousness is a major goal for every aspirant to discipleship.
The first part of the book dealing with the Egoic Ray, includes
(1) The growth of soul influence
(2) The seven laws of soul or group life
(3) The five groups of souls
(4) Rules for inducing soul control
The second part of the book, which deals with the Egoic, or soul, Ray
includes sections on
(1) The appropriation of the bodies
(2) The coordination of the personality
(3) Some problems of psychology
(4) Diseases and problems of disciples and mystics
The final part of this volume, Humanity Today, anchors these pervasive
thoughts and erergies within the world arena. The world situation is
viewed from the esoteric and Hierarchical angle and in relation the
requirements of the dawning new age of Aquarius. A synthesis of
thought and a unity of purpose must be established in the world in
order to create conditions in which peace can prosper, and the Christ
can reappear. Supreme effort was made by the Hierarchy to avert the
1939 outbreak of war, and to this end stimulation and evocative
energies were literally forced into human consciousness through the
agency of the new group of world servers. The requirements of the
Plan for humanity were held up as the VISION, without which "the
people perish". Choosing to learn the hard way, humanity is only now
opening the eye of vision as the result of drastic experience.
Disciples and world servers, therefore, face a superlative opportunity
today to equip them selves for service to the Plan, to humanity and to
Hierarchy, by applying the psychology of the soul to every aspect of
their life environment.
Esoteric Astrology Volume III
This is the basis for the Astrology of the future. It will come into its
own as the esoteric or soul factore begin to supersede the exoteric focus
of the vast majority of professional and amateur astrologers today.
The Ancient Wisdom teaches that "Space is and entity". It is with the
life of this entity and with the forces and energies, the impulses and the
rhythms that esoteric astrology deals.
This is the science which deals with those conditioning and governing
energies and forces which play through and upon the whole field of space
and all that is found withing that field. The Ancient Wisdom teaches that
"Space is an entity". It is with the life of this entity and with the
forces an energies, the impulses and the rhythms, the cycles and the times
and seasons, that esoteric astrology deals.
Esoteric astrology can be applied by the trained worker in a variety of
ways; in medicine, psychology, science, education; to an evaluation of
human problems, of the destin of nations, of a correct interpretation of
world affairs, etc. It is necessary, however, that at this stage the
application of esoteric astrology to human life should be recognized as
experimental and tentative, so that each individual worker can adjust his
thinking and his methods according to his own wrought-out experience.
As with all other aspects of occultism and esotericism, accuracy and
facility to work depend entirely on a consciousness evolving out of
control by the personality into the life of the soul, out of
separateness and self-centeredness into a realisation of unity, and
absorption into a centre of group consciousness.
One of the fundamental premises of this book is that while incoming
astrological energies are received by all, each uses the energy in
accordance at the level of consciousness that that person is at. This will
explain many things which don't seem to work in traditional astrology.
This book does not deal with the personality or fortune telling aspects of
astrology, but rather with the cosmic and spiritual influences.
(A suggestion here; the book does make extensive reference to the
energies of the Seven Rays. For the best comprehension of the ideas related
in this book, try to explore first what the rays are and have some
fundamental idea of their qualities. You will find your understanding of
the ideas enhanced thereby).
Esoteric Healing - Volume IV
There are probably more individuals and groups of people in the world
of every shade of belief and capacity, devoted to the idea of healing
than to any other single human need. Yet healing is and exact, and and
exacting, science; and in modern society no physician or surgeon may
practice the ancient progession of healing without the personal
qualifications legally recognised by the State for the protection of
the public. No doubt prayer and invocation can be effective under
certain circumstances, particularly when the one who serves is pure
and harmless in motive, and has enough understanding to cooperate with
the soul purposes of the individual, so permitting the healing energy
of the soul to flow more freely and effectively through the
personality, or to proceed with the process of withdrawal, if that is
its immediate purpose.
Esoteric healing, however, includes far more than this; it is a
science based on a number of requirements, including knowledge of the
constitution of man and the nature of the various bodies, both dense
and subtle. To this practical knowledge, the science of occultism
contributes vital information of the energy factors, the karmic and ray
influences, the psychology and astrology of the soul, and the laws and
rules fundamental to the safe and successful practice of esoteric
With all this to encompass in understanding and in application,
little wonder that this science is as yet in its infancy, still in the
experimental stages, and with other aspects of escotericism due for
major development only as the soul in man takes a stronger hold of all
In this book the seven ray techniques of healing are discussed;
the requirements for healing are given in detail; and basic causes of
disease are shown. We learn, for example, that much disease can be
karmic in origin; that certain diseases are inherent in the soil and in
the substance of the planet; and that many others are psychological,
arising in the emotional or mental bodies. Hence the need for a total
and comprehensive understanding both of the patient and of the correct
and safe methods of healing.
We are also given a true understanding of death as the
abstraction, or the withdrawal, of the soul from the body to continue
life on its own plane without the limitation of the body, until a new
cycle of incarnation and experience in form is necessary.
In the effort to apply the teaching given in "Esoteric Healing",
those whose destiny lies in this area of human service will begin to
unfold the spiritual faculty necessary for the healing of the whole
man. And this will increasingly concern groups of workers using the
magnetic and radiatory power of group energy and invocation. The right
practice of esoteric healing conforms, therefore, to the new age
development of group consciousness, and the establishment of right
energy relationships which underlie all aspects of esoteric training in
the world today. Not only the potential healer, but all occultists
will learn much from a study of "Esoteric Healing".
The Rays and the Initiations - Vol. V
The final volume in this treatise on the seven rays contains the
fundamental spiritual structure on which the next presentation of the
Ageless Wisdom teaching will build. The book is in two parts; the
first part enumerates and details the Fourteen Rules for Group
Initiation. These are the rules for disciples and intiates,
paralleling on a higher turn of the spiral, the rules for applicants
contained in the book "Initiation, Human and Solar". The second part
of this volume is concerned with the Rays and the Initiations, those
nine major expansions of consciousness through which the intiate
becomes progressively liberated from the various forms of our planetary
life, ultimately proceeding upon his chosen Path of development and
service within the universe.
One of the outstanding principles unfolded through the pages of
this book is that of the growth of the group ides-group service, group
responsibility and group initiation. The possibility of group
initiation seems to be one of the new emerging developments of the
Aquarian era; therefore, the profound value to the disciple of Fourteen
Rules for Group Initiation. These rules embody great trughs in
symbolic form, into which the consciousness expands with the acceptance
of occult obedience, and the meeting of all requirements on the Path of
Initiation in a group penatrating together towards the centre of an
ashram, and into the heart and will of the presiding Master.
Because "the way to the innermost sanctum is the way of outer
service", and because initiation is the effect of an increasing
capacity to intuit the Plan, to register ashramic purpose and TO ACT
ACCORDINGLY, "these rules are in reality great Formulas of
Approach...approach to a specific section of the Path and not approach
to the Iniator. I would have you reflect on this distinction. The
initiate is becoming increasingly aware of the dynamics of the Science
of the Service of the Plan. This distinctive realisation can only come
when his fused and blended personality and soul expression of will has
disappeared in the blazing light of the Divine Purpose."
Much of this teaching, while beyond the grasp of the average
student today, is invaluable in expanding the mind to contemplate the
larger patterns and processes in which the individual function may be
viewed in perspective. In dealing with such abstruse matters, the
author again demonstrates a marvelous capacity to relate the deepest
and most profound aspects of the Master's teaching to the life and the
consciousness of the aspirant in the world today. Since there is no
separation in life, and since the aphorisn "As above so below" applies
in every particular throughout the cosmos, and recognisably within the
solar and the planetary lives, there is great value in the clear
deliniation of continuity.
"Revelation concerns Oneness and nothing else. The practical
nature of this truth is only recognised when the disciple attempts to
do two things: To realise it individually and to bring the nature of
planetary unity and of non-separateness to the minds and into the lives
of men everywhere".
The books above are, (IN YOUR HUMBLE SYSOPS' OPINION, FOLKS),
the most important books in the series. They outline the scope,
as well as the major work which the Tibetan has given out through
Alice A Bailey (as a secretary, of course, NOT a medium or channel).
Alice Bailey wrote many interesting books herself, which will be

through contributions only, devoted to the esoteric sciences.

The Externalization of the Hierarchy
The subject of human free will has always contrived to set men's mental
teeth on edge. The fatalist automatically resigns himself to whatever
befalls him, seeing in effects no cause attributable to his own
action-or inaction; but resigned always to the working of an inexorable
The Christian counterpart tends to accept his lot as the working
of God's Will in which he has no say or part.
At the other extreme stands the rebellious independent, determine
to exercise his right to free, self-willed action.
This book, as one of its many values, shows the extent to which
Hierarchy and other centres of life on the planet are dependent upon
the unpredictable and often irresponsible factor of human free will.
During the years leading up to the outbreak of World War II, every
opportunity and every possible spiritual stimulation was offered to
humanity in an effort to avoid precipitation of conflict on to the
physical plane. disciples and aspirants to discipleship were asked to
give special cooperation to the Hierarchy, and to make an all-out
effort to provide adequate leadership to human thought and decision.
All were left free, however, to determine their own limits, if any, and
to decide their own actions. According to law, the Hierarchy-even at
danger point-could not infringe human free will and dictate or impose a
course of action based on their own deeper knowledge and more profound
Many of the spiritual factors surrounding the period of human
history from 1919 to 1949 are presented in this book. The energies at
work behind the world scene are shown; and identity revealed of certain
great Beings magnetically attracted in service towards this planet at a
climaxing moment in the evolution of our planetary life.
These factors are an aid to our understanding of the interrelated
energy patterns within the universe which operate according to law.
But essentially they provide the esotericist with knowledge of
available energy flow responding to planetary purpose and plan which
can be contacted and given conscious and intelligent cooperation,
particularly by those in whom the selfish, self-centered will has been
transcended so that the spiritual will can be given more adequate
expression. Some of these energy factors are particularly clear in the
special "Messages" given over a period of many years at the time of the
Festivals of Easter, Wesak (the Buddah's birthday), and the Christ.
Many aspects of Hierarchical work, thought and planning are
discussed in these Messages, with the Hierarchical effect shown of
planetary evolution and initiation and its reflection into humanity.
This achieved a climax at the time of the three Festivals in 1945, when
a monentous decision was taken involving, among other results, the
eventual externaisation of the Hierarchy and th reappearance of the
The final section of the book discusses the "Stages in the
Externalisation of the Hierarchy". It is often difficult for the human
mind to imagine the problems facing those liberated from the
restrictions of form. It is even more difficult to contemplate the
effects in those so liberated of a free choice to reassume such a
So we are helped to understand what the interdependence of life on
this planet really signifies in terms of love, sacrifice and service by
the part to the needs of the whole.
Problems of Humanity
The text of this book was first published in pamphlet form
immediately after the second world war. It was intended to show the
acute problems existing in seven main areas of human life following the
devastating experience of global warfare. It is realised that the
problems themselves had existed in a more or less inconspicuous form
and with increasing effect on human society for numbers of years. The
war served to precipitate incipient causes of disruption in human
relationships and to reveal unacknowledged depths of evil and
The present paperback edition of "Problems of Humanity", published
in 1964, is revised and edited to eliminate all out-of-date facts and
information. Six basic problems continue, however, to confront
humanity with opportunity for progress -
- The psychological rehabilitation of the nations
- The problem of the children of the world
- The problem of capital, labor, and unemployment
- The problem of racial minorities
- The problem of the churches
- The problem of international unity and the
equitable distribution of the world's resources
From these many other social and economic problems arise,
essentially resulting from growth in human consciousness and progress
in many underprivileged countries and communities towards freedom,
equality and interdependence in a modern world.
Recognition of causes within these problems, however, provides
opportunity to those who love and serve their fellowmen. To deal with
effects with understanding, compassion and intelligence, the first
prerequisite is the ability for clear, unbiased thought-a form of
meditative focus-so helping to create the "thoughtform of solution".
All men and women of goodwill are concerned with the solution of these
problems. They are particularly the concern of those accepting the
self-discipline of training for discipleship on the new age, those
world servers capable of relating esoteric trughs and spiritual
realities to the field of service in which they are placed.
The esotericist of today is a practical worker. His illumined
consciousness makes available to him a source of energy supply which is
inexhaustible and which orginates within the circulation energy of the
One Life. He thus becomes a centre of energy transmission between
Hierarchy and humanity, reflecting the soul, or Christ principle,
throughout his service environment, illuminating and lifting the
darkened areas of human consciousness. His knowledge of world affairs
and human problems helps him to direct his energies where they can be
of most service to the plan for man, and in the restoration of all
"To put it scientifically and from the esoteric angle: spiritual
impression has been interrupted and there has been interference with
the divine circulatory flow. It is the task of disciples of the world
to restore this flow and to stop this interference. This is the major
problem facing spiritual people at this time."
The Reappearance of the Christ
"In every age I come back to deliver the holy, to destroy the sin
of the sinner, to establish righteousness." So runs the well-known
passage in the Bhagavad Gita, giving words to an eternal hope in the
In this book the reappearance of the Christ is recognised as
inevitable within the continuity of divine revelation. Not onlyh has
God never left Himself without witness, but at definite periods in the
history of human evolution, the "word of God", the projected potency of
His vital life, has manifested in form inorder to establish the
principles to be demonstrated during the coming cycle.
There have been many such messengers over the ages, manifesting
through one or another of the great world religions or followed by a
new form of religion based on the new revelation. Divine revelation
and the periodic appearance of messengers, or Avatars, occur, however,
according to cosmic law, when certain conditions exist within the whole
scheme affected by, and affecting, every part, large and small. Then a
chain of events is set in motion which under law must eventually work
The part that our little planet Earth plays in the intricate an
smoothly functioning system of inter-relationships seems to be of vital
importance at this time. The esoteric and planetary significances of
the reappearance of the Christ are suggested in ths book as underlying
causes for His Aquarian service to humanity.
This is the beginning and end of an age-the beginning of Aquarius
and the end of Pisces-marking also a major turning point in the
evolution of human consciousness from individual need to the needs of
humanity as a whole, from personal salvation to world service, and from
materiality to spirituality. It seems that this climaxing transition
must be "marked" in both its stages, beginning and end, byt the Christ
Himself, and a principle anchored in human consciousness, which
embodies not only the love of God established for the age of Pisces,
but also the new potency for the future, the "Will" of God, into which
only the Christ is as yet fully and perfectly absorbed.
The imminence of the reappearance of the Christ is sensed and
expected by many, belonging as He does to all humanity irrespective of
differing religious dogma and doctrine. "He for whom all men wait"
will Himself determine the manner and the timing of His appearance and
the area of His work in a way which creates no divisions or separations
between men, either religious, social or ideological. Not only does
Hecome as the first Son of God, but as Head of the spiritual Hierarchy,
the inner government of the planet. He is, therefore, a great workd
executive, representing the Kingdom of God, and fulfilling a definite
function in the world of men. He is coming to establish through
precept and example in world service the principles on which a united,
interdependent and interactive world may create its new material
systems and spiritual institutions for the new civilisation.
Preparration for the second coming is the responsibility of
humanity; it is for those who know and accept the imminent return of
the Christ to repare men's minds and hearts to recognise and receive
Hime, and to create those conditions of balance and sipritual alignment
which will ultimately draw Hime forth into our midst. For no matter
what message or revelation the Christ may embody when He comes, no
matter what principle or energy He may anchor on Earth for human use,
He is not coming to save humanity from the results of its own sins, but
once more to show humanity how to save itself in the new contitions and
new opportunities with which the world is faced
