The Ageless Wisdom teachings offer us a valuable roadmap and set of navigational instruments for our journey into deeper levels of consciousness and self-awareness.
Like each one of us, the sacred eco-system we call Planet Earth is also evolving and seeking to fulfill the light-filled promise of its destiny within the greater Solar Family. Evolving lives within evolving lives within evolving lives.
The Tibetan teacher Master DK explains that three things are required of humanity to create the right psycho-spiritual soil conditions in which the solar seed containing this light-filled planetary promise can germinate and flourish. They are: acceptance of the reality of the Soul, recognition of the Spiritual Hierarchy and the realization of a Divine Plan.
In February we explored the concept of the Kingdom of Souls (aka the Spiritual Hierarchy or fifth kingdom) and put forward the idea that this realm of post-graduate humans represents the full flowering of the promise held within the heart and soul of humanity. It is what we aspire to become as soul-infused personalities.
In March, the statement was made that if we view all the kingdoms of Nature (from the dense visible plane to the refined invisible realms that comprise the full spectrum of existence) as aspects of One Planetary Life, then closer cooperation between humanity and the Spiritual Hierarchy is simply Life communing with Itself in a deeper and more intentional way.
Last month it was suggested that just as the carrot seed contains the pattern and promise of the carrot so the seed of a brighter future held within the Planetary Logos contains the vision and promise of a society that expresses “heaven on earth”. This ‘seed idea’ with its awesome pattern of possibilities is the spiritual architecture of a new world commonly referred to as the Divine Plan.
We know from the Ageless Wisdom teachings that a major task for those who are called to serve this Plan is to help prepare the way for the externalization of the Spiritual Hierarchy and the Reappearance of the Christ. In other words, the work of creating a bridge of resonance that facilitates direct communion and cooperation between humanity and the Kingdom of Souls as well as establishing a fecund field for the emergence and appearance of the Christ Presence that lives within the heart of each person.
One way to assist in the ‘externalization’ is to approach this task as a process of ‘internalization’. By contacting and embodying the qualities and characteristics of the Spiritual Hierarchy, the Presence of the Soul eventually becomes an 'internalized’ reality within the group consciousness of humanity. The soul qualities referred to include compassion, wisdom, light, love, joy and goodwill. Once a certain degree of embodiment has been reached then the group field becomes a magnetic point of precipitation for the Plan.
It is not our place to tell another person what they should or should not believe and all we can do is invite each other to reflect on what is true for us in relation to these important topics. In that spirit, let me leave you with a question to ponder:
"What is the true nature of my relationship with the soul, the Spiritual Hierarchy and the Divine Plan and what active part am I possibly being called to play in this great planetary adventure of revelation?"
