Evolution is unavoidable! As we evolve, we become more and more Human. As we become more and more Human we have experiences that reveal to a greater and greater extent that we are not our mortal animal physical equipment but the non-physical dense, and therefore nonmortal, Living Consciousness that is inhabiting it. Consequently more and more of our decisions regarding EVERYTHING are made to support the Common Good and the General Welfare rather than the self-centered desires of a deluded personality.
We eventually recognize that in our efforts to share this and many other scientific FACTS concerning the non-dense physical Reality in which we exist, the media we use to communicate with our sister and brother—immortal whether they know it or not—evolving units of consciousness, are the same media we used to contact and comprehend those FACTS ourselves. That is to say, we use hearing, touch, sight, taste, and smell. Communicating an experience which had no “form” as we experienced it, is the creative challenge facing every sister and brother who is to some degree consciously involved in the service of the Great Unfolding.
This is where being “struck dumb” by Beauty and Truth becomes a problem for some time. Having, in a place out of time, registered the energy, the frequency of a Principle with a synthesis of our 5 media or a 6th “sense”, we experience a kind of Knowing. However, there is simply nothing, no thing to communicate. All we can do is smile,
Or like stout Cortez when with eagle eyes
He star’d at the Pacific—and all his men
Look’d at each other with a wild surmise—
Silent, upon a peak in Darien.
John Keats “On First Looking into Chapman’s Homer”
Over time however, we are able to realize the energy impact into what we call ideas or what MM calls “images of Truth” Agni Yoga #122. These “images” of Truth do not have the same frequency as the Principles by which we were embraced in the Silence. They are still formless, and, as Master Plato points out, they are a lower frequency, or “one remove” from the Truth.
Initially for each evolving unit of consciousness, this process takes a varying amount of time. But gradually the process becomes synthesized or simultaneous. This is the eventual unavoidable result of the “esoteric” or energy process called building the “antahkarana”, an energy bridge which connects the form generating or creating process of Intelligence with the source of the Truth which gives Life to the form.
Via this bridge, the frequencies of the Principles which are able to register in or impress the receptive or “negative” higher mind through the Heart engagement of “loving magnetic attraction” or if you prefer, the Intuition, or Love-Wisdom, produce an Idea or Image of that Truth. This Idea or Image of truth through the use of the intelligence is used to create a form which will meet whatever needs are necessary to have the frequency of the Truth register in a way that the recipient can practically understand and use if she or he chooses.
Love Wisdom of course, only works to the degree that the motivation is selfless. Only the Heart can make the connection between the receptive frequencies (this means that the lower mental data processing is totally stopped.) of the higher mind and the Energy frequencies we call Principles: Love, Beauty, Justice, and etcetera.
To the degree that the individual still identifies as a separated self and operates as a relatively unconscious or conscious tool of Retrogressive Forces, the ability of the equipment to deal with these higher frequencies of Life, no matter how intelligent one is, are non-functional. “He [the Retrogressor] can and does respond to the knowledge—most ancient and hardly won—stored up in the “knowledge petals” of the souls.(See Chart VIII Thought and Fire Elementals A Treatise On cosmic Fire P817) He can appropriate and utilize the energy of attraction (erroneously called love by some students) stored up in the “love petals” of the soul, but he cannot respond to and use the energy of divine love, working out in the divine Plan which controls all knowledge and converts it into wisdom, and which actuates and clarifies the motive which brings loving magnetic attraction into action and which we call true group consciousness and group cohesion. It is at this point that the two ways—of darkness and of light—become widely divergent.” The Rays and Initiations P. 349
However, as we practice this form of Being, incarnation after incarnation, the time lapse between the experience of the Principles, their presence as Ideas or images of Truth in our higher mind, and our ability to formulate them into objectively useful thoughtforms, depending on the situation, becomes shorter. Eventually the intuitive connection between the Principle and the idea or image-generating function of a practical form is instantaneous.
Not quite there yet! Well this is where patience and striving matter. It’s called the Path. As has been pointed out by Master D.K. “The goal ahead of the aspirant is the consciousness of non-separateness and the recognition of a universal inclusiveness; the secondary goal is the ability to reveal the nature of that reality, Unity; the third goal is the ability to take those measures in the three worlds which will facilitate mankind’s apprehension of these fundamentals.” 7R5 p298
It’s a good idea here to recall that “a mistake in daring is more easily remedied than abject mumbling.” New Era Community # 48
Focused in, and guided by Love Wisdom, we use our 6th sense to formalize the initial idea or image of truth. We create a thoughtform and thereby give the image of truth some definite shape or structure that will transmit meaning and significance to our sisters and brothers. We are now two removes from the Truth.
This is of course the path that generates what we call Art, all art, to happen. The Art of Living, for example, is simply the effort we make to embody and present that silence which we Know through thoughts and actions, to daily model, that is, communicate through a dense form, Truth or Reality to our sisters and brothers.
To be able to do this is truly an art, and some bits of it are very much more effective than others. The dense form, regardless of how amazingly beautiful and powerful it is, is a manifestation of the thoughtform of the Idea or Image of Truth which is in turn the impression on the higher, formless, mental field of the energy of the Principle or Truth. The actual dense appearance of the thought form of the Idea in dense physical matter, as for example a poem, or a symphony is a symbol and is now three removes from the Truth.
Just to simplify, “thinking” is not processing data or forms. If one is “thinking”, one has created a magnetic link between the totally receptive or negatively polarized higher mind and the positively polarized Atmic or Plane of Principles. There are zero dense matter forms of any kind in this connection. One registers the Energies of the Principle or Principles (Joy, Beauty) and, though there are no forms, one KNOWS something!
Joy actually is a special wisdom. It knows! The movement of what one Knows from the interface with Principle, into the higher mind as an image of that Truth and from there into some kind of thought form is the Individual’s effort to share in relatively dense matter the non-thing that one KNOWS.
I know and understand that many of the “intelligentsia” will scoff at this. Unfortunately, this scoffing is the hurdle that has kept the “would be” scientists captured in the prison of one dimensional reality for lo these many centuries. Consequently we have had to depend on our artists, our musicians, our poets, playwrights, painters, sculptors, and those few real Scientists, who could and did produce philosophical treatises, and newly formulated presentations of the Ageless Wisdom or what we call Esoteric Philosophy, to provide windows, doorways, and paths into the Reality of the multidimensional Cosmos.
Anyone looking at the present world situation from a 2 or 3 century long vantage point will see the struggle that Humanity has been going through, They will also see that we have in the recent hundred years or so finally broken the lockstep of repetitive ignorance that has kept us on the revolutionary merry-go round. We have made giant steps toward freeing ourselves from the Big Lie of The Animal Farm consciousness of the Pigs.
Humanity is unavoidably evolving. This means that we are becoming more and more aware of the fact of the multidimensional Cosmos. We are simultaneously becoming aware of the interconnectedness or synthesis of all life on the Planet, the blatant ignorance of being identified with our dense physical anything, and the actual presence of an inner consciousness and connection with all of Humanity. This is Group Consciousness.
One must, however be aware of the enormous clouds of doubt, hate, and fear that the Retrogressive Forces are ginning up. Understand that these are the mind and heart killers. Triumph is not an issue. We will triumph; it’s evolution!
The only issue at present, and it seems to be a very sensitive issue, is how are we going to handle this? It is possible to do it with a minimum of dense physical destruction and pain. This requires that—regardless of the barriers that the Retrogressive Forces are using and will continue to use—first everyone Votes. Then everyone becomes involved at whatever level she or he can. We can all think! Think good thoughts about a Loving and Just Future for Humanity. And if you can, send money or dense energy as it is called to where it is needed.

This is precisely why we are here now. LET’S DO THIS
