The Post Delusion Age
As the Kali Yuga ends, all processes actually speed up, which is why we should not regard the periods predicted in the past to be unchangeable. As the Kali Yuga ends, even half a century is not a minor period of time. Heart #446
The forces that were particularly powerful during the Black Age must now struggle for survival, and they prefer a general catastrophe to defeat. Supermundane #157
A Few Data Points
Note: I am writing this piece mostly for those sister and brother units of consciousness who have achieved Post Delusional Consciousness. Many, many, probably most of you, while being definitely Post Delusional in consciousness, (having achieved that state in prior incarnations) are not presently multidimensionally or “esoterically” informed or inclined toward detailed data regarding the source and function of the various energies that impact evolution; therefore, you may balk at the fact of reincarnation. The reincarnation into mortal physical bodies of non-mortal units of consciousness, what we call souls, who are participating in this Planetary experiment is an essential fact of Human evolution, and so, I would ask you to at least consider its rationality in terms of evolution. The following data points would be basically meaningless otherwise.
The Path of human evolution expands an individual’s awareness of Reality from what we call mass consciousness to what we call group consciousness. The section of the Path which bridges these two poles is called Self-consciousness. It is the Path of self-consciousness on which we have been crawling around for something like 17 million years. (A Treatise on White Magic p. 378) What initiated all of this was an event called The Coming of the Lords of Flame which “…occurred in the third rootrace in the fourth round.” Treatise of Cosmic Fire p.299 The Lords of Flame, “implanted a germ of mind in the secondary group of [mass conscious] animal-men who were ready for individualization [self-consciousness].” Treatise on Cosmic Fire p.1147
This journey on the path of self-consciousness, as we know from many, many, incarnations of experience and struggle, turned out to be a seriously significant undertaking. There was/is a group of ancient and highly advanced Intelligences who are violently determined to end that journey. The fact that they created a “planned distortion of the divine will….” The Rays and the Initiations P. 350. to facilitate their intention has not made our journey any easier.
So, maybe 17 million years is understandable.
The fact is, however, that our evolution from self to group consciousness is unavoidable and has been happening all along. The efforts of the Retrogressors, while a huge problem, frequently worked as a tactica adversa causing one or a few of us, (and eventually the entire incarnated group, which is what is currently under way.) at various times to draw forth from our Inner Truth the courage and will to overcome and move on. The anciently sung and chanted as well as the modern well known myths, and stories, and names of the heroes, the podvig of these Sisters and Brothers, are the deeper histories of our journey. For all those millions of years individuals here and there and gradually groups of us achieved a step on the path from the darkness of ignorance to the Light of Knowing.
The Great Delusion
The Path of Self Consciousness
The “secondary group of animal-men”, conditioned by the spark of mind and free will, eventually became aware of the fact that they were individuals who could choose to do whatever they wanted to do. Their identification of who or what they were shifted from the animal focus of mass consciousness to “Self” consciousness. Their immediate separative identification was still with their separate dense selves. We literally thought, and probably billions still do, that we were our dense physical bodies. So, we had an I AM! Moment!
Thus, we have the long evolutionary journey from animal man into Human Beings.
It is precisely this delusional identification with our dense physical vehicles that has been the major impediment of our evolution. “It is the concretizing unprincipled mind which brings about all the troubles of humanity. It is the sense of I-ness and the spirit of separative individuality which has brought humanity to its present condition, and yet even that is a part of the great developing process. It is the consciousness of duality, and the subjectively realized and synchronously acknowledged sense of “I am God” and “I am form” which has plunged mankind into the great illusion.” A Treatise on White Magic p.614
A couple of factors regarding the nature of evolution and time need to be considered if we want to understand the enormous “leap” from the Age of Delusion to the Post Delusion Age.
It took roughly 17 million years to evolve from the Lords of Flame’s little implant to get to around 1500 AD. It has only taken 500 years to get from a Conclave of the Hierarchy in I500 to today. So, let’s forget the 17 million years bit, and just consider the period of history about which we supposedly know something which is 5000 years.
In the above noted 500 year segment of that 5000 years, numberless, significant changes or developments occurred within the dense physical and psychic lives of all Life on the planet including Human life. For one giant example, since 1500, a significant majority of Humanity evolved from being held in some relative form of slavery, from actual iron collars and chains to simply being the “serfs” or property of whichever group of supposed “Royalty” were the present “God made owners” of the land and everything on it, to being “free” individuals.
The point is not just the level or amount of evolutionary change but that it occurred in 500 years or so. 500 years in comparison to the previous 5000 years—to say nothing of the 17 million—is less than the blink of an eye. Since 1500 in virtually every Kingdom of life on this planet, huge, deeply significant changes have and are occurring.
(A few esoteric data points: This change involves the disintegration and removal of many forms besides human which vibrate to the Piscean Age energy of the 6th and 3rd Rays. It also makes it very difficult for 6th and 3rd Ray units of consciousness to incarnate or evolve with in the frequencies of the Aquarian Post Delusion Age which is very powerfully impacted by Rays 1,2, 7.)
The sign of success of all this struggle and strain is summed up in the esoteric phrase “I Am That and That Am I”. Mostly this exclamation is thought to mean that we, the inner unit of consciousness, usually in a flash, have finally realized that we are in actual fact our inner unit of consciousness rather than our dense physical body. On another level this realization also reveals, eventually, that we exist in synthesis. There is zero separation in the multidimensional cosmos. We are Individuals and One with all at the same time. It is the ability to know this fact as Reality that signifies the shift from the Age of Delusion into the Post Delusional age of Aquarius.
As we know, the population of humanity has gone from 2.7 billion in 1953 to 8 billion in 2020. Within this gigantic population explosion there is a steadily growing appearance of reincarnating humans who are born knowing this. Their knowledge is not necessarily a currently conscious thing but simply a perfectly natural inborn fact of life which they have learned during the many incarnations of their evolutionary process.
The majority of humans, who are limited by their one dimensional delusionary identification, have as yet to realize that by very far, the most significant of these changes, which is actually the Driver of them all, is this exploding presence of individuals on the dense physical plane who are group conscious.
It is, in the end, not really that difficult to discriminate between the “humanity” of the Age of Delusion and the new Post Delusion Age of Humans which is being manifested through the agency of Rays 1, 2, and particularly through Ray 7 which functions as a synthesis of the 3. “The seventh ray has sometimes been called a peculiar name by Knowers. It is regarded as the “Ray of Ritualistic Decency.” It aids and inaugurates the appearing of a new world order, based on a spiritual drive and on aspiration, mental freedom, loving understanding and a physical plane rhythm which provides opportunity for full creative expression. To bring this about, energy from Shamballa (embodying the will-to-good) is fused and blended with the organizing energy of the seventh ray and then carried to humanity along the stream of love which emanates from the Hierarchy itself.” 7R3 p.445
To but it simply, Post Delusion Humans are Human Beings. They tend to be neither identified with nor motivated and driven by the desires of their animal natures or bodies. To a great degree, they do not identify with their personalities or the material things that they may or may not have. They are consciously self-responsible for their actions. They do not “own” anything. They have a sense of responsibility to use whatever they do have control of for the furthering of the Common Good, and the General Welfare.
They mostly realize that they are evolving toward a more perfect union with the Light. And while they understand clearly the difference between Truth and delusion, they strive to bring loving understanding into all matters.
