The Cosmic Brotherhood



The Cosmic Brotherhood

There is no avoiding the awareness that the present situation on Planet Earth is Grave, very Grave, but not without a solution. What would be the point of having an unsolvable problem? I mean can it be a problem if it does not have a solution? That’s just dopy. Besides which, “from the beginning they have been struggling, and from the beginning we have been conquering”. I see every indication that this process will continue. We did not come this far to blow it.

Looking back, it seems apparent that we humans seem to relish close calls. (the effort to down load the science of the atom comes to mind.) We have lost more than a few, and this one seems very close; however, as the Master has indicated, and experience has taught us, “The power of experience defeats alien infirmity…. A miracle means for Me only the mark of a horseshoe. Courage means for Me only the arrow in the quiver. Resoluteness for Me is only the daily bread.” There is a kind of certainty in the field of consciousness that I deeply share. We are about done with the trouble makers. I mean we have had it with them. It’s time for them to go. We are moving forward, and we will prevail. Make no mistake.

In the meantime, around this rapidly unfolding and unavoidable event, there has been a lot of very excited talk and speculation. Books have been written and movies have been made about “Space, the Last Frontier” about our Space Brothers, or the Galactics, or Extraterrestrials and so on. Many of these concern our relationships with other Galactics, and about their dropping in and helping us out.

Present day people, while loving the movies and books, marvel and are astonished and mostly see it as fiction, fantasy. I suspect that the movies and books and a lot of the speculation are coming from deep within the collective consciousness of Humanity. Who is going to discriminate between re-membering and imagining?


At any rate, such appearances are nothing new for us Earth folks. We have, in fact, forever been being visited, “helped out”, and even impregnated by Non-indigenous folks from all over the Galaxy. Among the earliest if not the first help was what the Ageless Wisdom refers to as the “planting of the spark of mind in animal man.” Obviously, if it were not for that intervention, we would still be running around and being eaten by our bigger and faster four legged brothers.

The visitors came and they continue to come on several dimensions in all sizes, and shapes and kinds: from major to minor Avatars and Saviors, and, like it or not, we have also been invaded by the not so keen on helping us types, Devils and Slavers of various descriptions.

Ever since that first intervention, the one seemingly constant that we Earth Locals have in common with these visitors, regardless of their intentions, their shape, size, or kind, is Consciousness.

This fact should be a really big tip off that, who or whatever these various visitors “appear to be”, at the level of consciousness they are very much like us—probably with a few upgrades in the Wisdom and awareness category—and the folks we have to deal with every day. Some of us get It. There is this Principle called Brotherhood, we have an inborn feeling, a sense for that. We tend to be nice, friendly, hip to the fact that regardless of which Galaxy, Solar system, Planet, nation, race we currently come from, we understand that we are all brothers and sisters, and we all want to help the Great Cosmic Unfolding Unfold.

We have long known that some of these visitors are still chained to the Cosmic Wall like the one in Plato’s Cave. These folks just do not Get It! Or at least have not as yet Got It! They still think they are somehow Exclusive, dis-connected from the WHOLE THING, or Cosmos. They assume that they and their personal physical plane stuff, including themselves and whatever planets they can dominate, are all that MATTERS, or just matter. These Brothers simply are not able to get the fact of an infinite unified multidimensional Cosmos or get behind anything like cooperation or co-creation. They think that things like brotherhood and equality are just na├»ve ignorance.

So, since we have had, and are apparently still hosting, some of these Just Don’t Get Its or JDGI’s, on Planet Earth, we have all of this non-Plan nonsense, to deal with. You know starvation, disease, war, murder, gluttony, luxury insanity (Incidentally, luxury is a dope that makes the addictive qualities of heron seem like skim milk), greed, and so on. You know, it’s basically the kind of behavior you would expect from someone who is deluded and simply does not Get It.

Unfortunately, a lot of our local Earth folks, some of whom have been hanging out on Earth for some time are so hooked on the various drugs the JDGI’s are pushing, especially the big three, GGL or Greed Gluttony and Luxury that they are basically not conscious of being consciousnesses.


It takes a long time, if you will recall, to get it. Fortunately for us all, consciousness is apparently immortal. There is no shortage of time, and there is plenty of Space in Cosmos to work on getting it.

On the other hand, there is and always has been those on the planet who are aware at some level of being consciousnesses. Individuals and groups have always come forward especially in time of great need, like this one, to help us out. Sometimes they just walk in from a desert or write some poetry or do painting or show up on TV. A bunch of them showed up at a convention that went from May 25 to September 17, 1787, in Philadelphia Pennsylvania. The result of the Convention was the creation of the United States Constitution. Occasionally they show up as a President like Abraham Lincoln or a Minister like Martin L. King.


What these “helpers” do is provide the Light for us to see the way forward. They give life to the Principles that we need to understand and strive toward. All such visitors GET IT. They are Galactics. They understand that we are all brothers and sisters, and we all want to help the Great Cosmic Unfolding Unfold.

Where do you suppose all those Cosmic Principles like Justice, Beauty, Joy, that we carry on about come from? It is really all about consciousness. When one, anyone, real-izes that all of those humans out there are basically him or herself, that on the level of consciousness we are all One Life, then horizons expand, the barriers of separative illusions dissolve including the illusion of not being part of Cosmos.


The Common Good emerges.

So, you see, just like everything else We are all Brother Galactics. We are the invasion from INNER SPACE. We are Ideas in action, unfolding the Plan. It is truly unavoidable, and swimming within the stream of the Future is so much more enjoyable.

Dear Senator Sanders

Thursday, April 21, 2016
Dear Senator Sanders

All of the success you have had so far can be attributed to your clear heart energized enunciation of the CAUSES of the inequality that engenders the across the board suffering of our people.

It has been the clarion call of that message that has ignited the hearts of the people. It appears that most of those hearts beat in the breasts of the young. This is understandable because the effects of the gross inequalities that you call attention to have stifled and discouraged the hearts of many of our older brothers and sisters. The “young hearts” have not as yet been beaten down.

Also you must know, because such a heart beats in your breast, that there are millions of “older” but still undefeated hearts beating out there. Also the message you carry has reignited many of the hearts in our older brothers and sisters.

The point here, Senator is to forget Hillary. She is a wind from the past and will pass sooner than later. Focus that heart energy on the message. The Ideas which you carry into the mental and emotional fields are the Power that can still fire the hearts of the many. The future is not decided.

Criticizing Hillary was a Yuge mistake. I suspect that a number of your “experienced political advisers” have suggested this tack. It is understandable, but criticism of Hillary deflects light from the issues.  It was an act of fear, and fear is a lousy counselor.

Hillary, the sister, is not the issue. She is actually a victim of the heart discouraging Causes.

Stay on those causes. Why does the all of the money end up in the pockets of the FEW? What causes the manipulation of the voting processes to disenfranchise millions of individuals. The Causes of the “rigged” systems, the corrupt economic systems and etc. are the “beliefs” of the 1%ers. Greed is good. The “haves, and the have mores” are superior people and they deserve what they can take. Equality for all, except some are more equal than others.

Call on the Principles of our Constitution. The Ideas that make up our constitution are images Truth. They are Ideas of Power, and they will not go away or ever get old.
Lots of love

Dear Mr. President

Saturday, April 16, 2016
Dear Mr. President.
This may be the last letter I write to you, and it is probably the most important.

I am not among those who think that you, and a number those who have preceded you, who have had the responsibility of leading this incredible Human accomplishment we call the United States of America, are remotely interested in what is called you Legacy. Individuals who make choices based on such a vapid concern have always been a big problem for the evolution of this nation rather fosters of progress.

I think that you are concerned with dealing with the immediate problems facing our Nation and Humanity, of which we are an inseparable part, in the best possible way to serve the Common Good.

Never an easy thing to do and something that is not understood by vast numbers of our brothers and sisters.

Over the years The United States has vetoed every effort that was brought to the Security Council of the United Nations to solve the Palestinian/Israel tragedy. I am urging, that in these final days of your responsibilities as our President, that you cause the resolution to establish the two state solution to be brought before the United Nations Security Council for a vote, and vote for it.

The situation as it exists is a very dangerous generator of fear and hate. The time to put an end to this awful situation is now; and I think that the power to do it is ours, if we choose to do so.
Lots of love

Nuts,bolts and Joy

Nuts, Bolts and Joy

All there is, is energy. Energy, has no mass outside of form; however, no one doubts that it exists outside of form. Sun light is energy. Everyone agrees that energy cannot be destroyed, and energy can be measured and even photographed.

All forms of any kind, from a rock to an amoeba to a person, and of any size, from a quark to a planet or a sun, are basically densified energy, or energy that has been impounded in matter. There is no question about the fact that energy which has been impounded in a form can be released or moved from one form to another with varying results from relatively micro like striking a match to macro like setting of an atom bomb. These are all examples of energy as we know it on the dense physical planes.

But all there is, is energy, and energy exists purely as energy long before it becomes impounded in dense matter to make some kind of a dense physical form. Many of us, for example, are very much aware of the energy we call emotion, and the energy we call thinking. We are aware of it because we can register it in various ways with the equipment in which we live and move, our etheric and dense physical bodies.

The “etheric” body is an energy envelope that surrounds and interpenetrates our dense physical body somewhat like the blueprints of the superstructure of girders, pipes and electric conduits that we see when a building is under construction. The dense physical body is actually a kind of manifestation of the etheric body in a very much denser matter.

Not surprising then, the accouterments or apparatuses of the dense physical vehicle like our ears, skin, eyes, tongue and nose, which let us hear, feel, see, taste and smell, also let us register and, via the brain, interpret the frequencies of various kinds of energy on the subtler, that is much less dense, planes of emotion and thought.

It is frequently difficult for most people to discriminate between these two frequencies because they are usually mixed in with each other. However, a little consciousness training and some close observation can enable one to easily discriminate between these two very different frequencies of energy.

Once we gain some skill in this, we are able to observe these two energies operating within our environments. As we discover their various uses, and experiment with these energies, we can gradually become avoiders of empowering negative vortexes of either mental or emotional energies and creators of positive vortexes of the powerful energy of Fire or Light.

Activity on the mental plane, from useless “wool gathering” like free association, tripping or fantasizing, to the conscious embodiment in thoughtforms of the Images of Truth which we call Ideas, generates mental constructs. Thoughts are things. They are actual forms constructed out of mental matter.

Thoughtforms have life in the same sense as does the thoughtform which is our instrument of manifestation and to varying degrees with which we identify, or any form in the three lower dimensions. Thoughtforms, like all forms, persist in the lower dimensions for as long as they are energized by either a conscious or unconscious stream of energy. If the “eye”, the focused attention of the creator, is removed, the thoughtform, on any of the lower 4 dimensions will dissipate unless some other consciousness has picked it up and is animating it with his or her life energy.

We speak of thoughtforms here; however, the truth is that a large percentage of the activity of our brothers and sisters and even of ourselves does not produce actual integrated structures or thoughtforms. To actually exist a thoughtform, must have a “logical” or coherent structure. Just as one must follow certain laws of physics to create a building, say Disney Hall, on the dense physical, there are laws of physics involved in the creation of thoughtforms on the mental plane. To produce a thoughtform, one must be able to follow these laws of physics. Master D. K. has given a list of these in A Treatise On White Magic P. 278,9

However, every thought produces a thing or a partial form. And, even if the produced things do not achieve the status of thoughtforms, these things do exist. Most of what is produced by the present humanity is what Master M refers to as “accumulations of mental dust” and Master D.K. calls smog. The mental dust and smog, the stuff that free association and wool gathering produces, for example, do exactly what dense physical dust and smog do. They make the “mind’s eye” burn. They generate spirals of confusion and daydreams and make it next to impossible to see more than a few micro millimeters into what is going on, or even more important, to even be aware of what is coming right at us.

Actually, a great deal of the mental activity in which humans engage involves a data processing function, the re-processing of thoughtforms which already exist. (Master R. calls this activity “not-thinking”.) In this, we actually energize with our own life energy the thoughtform with which we are working, increasing its power and extending its life on the mental plane. Thus the ancient thoughtforms of evolution and Light and the ancient thoughtforms of devolution and darkness which exist on our mental plane as great vortexes of energy and are being constantly energized and have become very, very powerful.

The Ideas generated from the Light, the Principles of Cosmic Physics, the Images of Truth which we call Ideas, and, “which for real evolution are far more vital than any worship by entire nations” Agni Yoga 122 are contacted by human thinkers and meditators who update and reformat them into contemporary language and images. These radiant/magnetic literally fire devas or beings, for that is what a formatted idea, or a thoughtform is, are registered and used by millions of individuals to provide solutions to their specific issues and service.

Those ancient thoughtforms of separation and illusion which were generated by very powerful and highly skilled members of the Forces of Retrogression are also contacted by humans who are trapped in the prisons of form identification. These “prisoner of the Planet” many of whom are highly intelligent and integrated separative personalities use these thoughtforms to further what they assume to be their own desires, their own separative agendas. However, for the most part, they are the unwitting, however, responsible to the Lords of Karma, prisoners or slaves of the Retrogressive forces.

Once created, thoughtforms move into the emotional plane where they are empowered with emotional energy. They generate a frequency, an effect in emotional matter, and are used to implement the agendas, either of evolution or retrogression, of those who contact them. This process is what drives or hinders evolution. The retrogressive or devolving thoughtforms generate vast energy webs of fear, greed, hate in the lower mental and emotional planes. These Dark energy fields hinder evolution by blocking the magnetic radiant light of the incoming seeds of the New Age.

It is primarily on these two dimensions that the battle for the future or the planet between the Forces of Light and Retrogression is being waged. It is a 24/7 struggle that has no geographical location and that involves the entire Planet on all of the lower dimensions. The presence on the planet of starvation, disease, homelessness, huge flows of refuges, the terrible destruction of the environment and more all generated by the imbalances in the circulation of Light through the etheric and dense physical planes are the dense physical manifestations of the efforts of the Retrogressive Forces.

The above discussion regarding the generation and power of thoughtforms is intended to put this whole issue into non-esoteric or mystical language. Everyone who is somewhat mentally polarized and who has some concern for the plight of Humanity works on the mental plane. Every kind, healing, lifting, helping, solicitous thought and act impacts one’s immediate environment, increases the Light, relieves pain and furthers the manifestation of the Plan. When this work is done with conscious intention its power is magnified hundreds fold. This is what it means to be a Light Worker on the dense physical plane.

When this work is done through a meditative alignment with the World of Ideas and the higher dimensions of the Buddhic and Atmic planes, it opens a channel for the Light of the creator’s Intention to impact the ancient huge spirals and webs of dark and evil thoughtforms, and their astral vestiges which infest the lower dimensions, and destroy them. Thus clearing the frequency fields which lie between the Heart, Mind and Brain of Humanity and allowing the Seeds of the Future to be reached and be planted in the soil of the human heart.

Our primary focus in this world salvaging effort is the building and sustaining the bridge in consciousness that connects the Atmic dimension of Principle with the lower sub planes of the mental and emotional dimensions. The generation of images of truth which literally destroy the ancient vortexes of devolution is work that needs doing. There are not hordes of individuals who are skilled in this work.


Daily consciously directed meditation by those who are able in the center which we call the race of Man will restore the Plan on Earth. Consciously involving ourselves in this effort is not a job, friends, it is quite possibly the most Joyful thing any of has ever done. Imagine, saving a Planet!

What's Up with Bernie!

What's Up With Bernie!
Just read another NYT article that denigrates, in the typical sideways method of sophistry, (note the quote marks around the word revolution in the article’s title) Senator Sanders because he has been repeating the same message for thirty years. Although credited to his detractors, the underlying message of the article indicates that Senator Sanders’ “repetition makes him a doctrinaire ideologue, a broken record who lacks intellectual flexibility and fails to see the world any differently now than he did as a 20-something radical firebrand.” NYT “Bernie Sanders Consistent Over Decades in His Call for ‘Revolution’” March 25, 2016

The implication is that his consistency is a glaring reason why Senator Sanders is not capable of being the President. It is not of course significant that the nation has a Constitution, the Principles of which are still far from being embodied in Law, that has been saying the same thing for 227 years.

Another of Senator Sanders flaws is that while “most politicians will adjust their language, if not their message, to what they believe the crowd wants to hear, Mr. Sanders does not.” Of course most “politicians” who by and large are accomplished sophists, will adjust everything including the clothing they wear to satisfy what the crowd wants.

To do that would be completely against Bernie’s Character. I would guess that the notion never even occurs to him.

What is at the core of these unending efforts to cast the Senator as a radical firebrand turned buffoon, or a crazy old man is nothing new. It is the same technique that has been used to discredit and destroy or justify the elimination of every person who would dare challenge the power structure of the self-appointed rulers of Humanity. I could make a longish list of these great and lesser heroes starting with Socrates and including those individuals like Jesus who, over the centuries, have given all they have to further the Dream of Humanity while seeking nothing for their separative selves.   By the way, those who could not be gotten rid of in this sophistic manner were simply murdered. We could site several modern example of this method as well.

So why all of this effort to eliminate Senator Sanders for the field? It is another chapter in the ages old struggle between Reality and Illusion, or between the Principles of Cosmic Law and the delusions of the separated selfish materialists. The actors on materialist side of the struggle are individuals who are so identified with the material world that they either cannot or will not see the fact of the multidimensional reality of Cosmos. Thus they live to satisfy their conceptions of a separated reality in which the powerful are the rightful rulers of the weak.

However, not to worry, “From the beginning they struggled. From the beginning we conquered.”

Another part of the sophistic efforts to denigrate the Senator employs ageism. Usually this particular bit of darkness concerns the denigration of old folks. In this case it is cutting two ways. It labels Bernie as an outworn “broken record”, and at the same time, constantly mentions that his followers are “young”, therefore, not that smart, easily conned, lacking in experience and on and on. (Incidentally, “young” is an old thoughtform that is totally out of date as it is used to refer to human beings. First of all it has to do with the physical body, not the whole person. I have met many 10 to 30 year olds who have a much better grasp of what’s going down than vast numbers of those who are above 45. This is not a strange thing. It is evidence of Evolution.)

A very interesting point here is that the while the majority of individuals who show up at Bernie’s gatherings may be between 15 and 45 there are also a goodly number of individuals over that age. Labeling any of those who participate in Bernie’s meetings or who work for his campaign as followers is another piece of sophistry and ignorance. It is saying that they are deluded sheep following a pied piper or something.

My sense, and my experience with individuals of the so called “young age” is that they are not “following” Bernie as a personality. They are resonating to the frequency of what comes out of him, and not simply the speeches but the whole package. They are hearing with their hearts, not their programmed intellects. They respond to Principles not effects.

Bernie is relatively selfless. He is not into this for his “legacy” or for personal glory of any kind. People believe what he is saying is what he will attempt to do because of the frequency of honesty that he radiates. People do not “trust” Hillary because of the frequency she radiates. The heart can infallibly register these frequencies. The intellect cannot.

The Principles to which Bernie continually gives voice and therefore power are live energy fields. They are Ideas, images of cosmic Principles. They carry the foundations of the very rapidly unfolding Age in which we are living. They are the unavoidable aspects of the evolution of the Planet, and they will triumph. You can empower them with your will by voting for them.

Why Vote and Why For Senator Sanders?

The first one, why vote, is a no brainer. First of all, there is no such thing as not voting. Not voting is voting! It is voting for whom ever you think is the worst possible option. But that is just a fact.

Actually, consciously not voting is an act of moral turpitude. Strong word! Yes it is. By choosing to not vote one not only gives ones free will to choose how things will unfold to others, but ignores the millions of brothers and sisters who have paid dearly, dearly for our Right to Vote.

Not voting for any of the other multitude of reasons non-voters come up with is, likewise, a sell-out of what Democracy is, and it is also revealing of one’ self-centered ignorance. We, Humanity, are a collective, a unified field of consciousness. There is no my good and your bad, my eat and your hunger, my wealth and comfort and your poverty and lack of shelter, health care, education, humanity.

Literally forever, or at least as long as we have any written records, our Hearts our poets, our Teachers, our composers and musicians, our heroes of legend and life all of them, not the least of which was Jesus, have been telling us that each of us is all of us and we should do unto others as we would do unto ourselves BECAUSE WE ARE our others. Nothing is separated from the whole. Because of gluttony and greed others of us starve. It is a simple cause and effect fact.

So, Vote. Take your best shot, but take it.

Now, why vote for Senator Sanders.

Well actually, the Senator is our best shot at a multitude of possibilities. He is our best shot mainly because he is putting the POSSIBILITIES on the table.
Senator Sanders is not interested in the “legacy” or glory of Senator Sanders.

No true friend of Humanity ever is interested in what history will say about them. A, because they are not self-centered to begin with. and B. because, going in, they realize the only outcome will probably involve their demise, in one way or another, which it usually always does.

Senator Sanders is putting his entire life on the line. Why? Not to be the President, but to gain the Inalienable Rights of Democracy for all of us, to wrench the keys of democracy, freedom, dignity, and justice for all, out of the hands of the Keepers of the Keys, those of a self-adulating nature and retrogressive bent who have always been with us and been trying to keep us under their locks as “prisoners of the Planet”.

Presently these prison wardens are known as the Corporate Establishment.

There are no half-way measures in evolution. Evolution is unavoidable. It will get Humanity to where it is intended to go. Senator Sanders is doing everything in his power to put a light on that path. We cannot advance through half-way measures. At best we can maintain the gains that were made by full throated (interesting energy statement) efforts of those Heroes who have got us this far.

It is interesting that Hillary, that is Sir Edmund Hillary, was not a half way kind of guy. He climbed to the top of Mount Everest in 1953.

To get to the top of the Mountain, one must go there. Halfway measures will not accomplish that end. But Evolution is not a friend of halfwayness. So, first of all vote for Senator Sanders in any primary your involved in.

At the end, we do not, not vote. The heart, not an ignorant observer, will always take the best shot to move the climb to the top of the Mountain forward.
lots of love

From Illusion To Reality

From Illusion To
Reality
In his Republic, circa 380 BC E, Plato used a metaphor called the Allegory of the Cave to describe the multidimensional reality of the Cosmos in which we “live and move and have our being.” The metaphor has people in chains sitting in front of a blank wall. There is a fire behind them and all sorts and manners of things and objects pass on a raised platform in front to the fire casting shadows on the wall. The chained people, unable to turn their heads, see only the shadows directly in front of them. For these folks, the shadows of the objects passing behind them are reality.

The allegory goes on to relate how one prisoner is freed and, at first blinded by the light of the fire, is eventually able to see the things that were behind him. Eventually, having been dragged by the philosopher up the path into greater light, which involves the painful releasing of a continual string of illusion regarding the REAL, they finally reach the caves mouth. Again after a period of adjustment, the prisoner sees the Sun.

The prisoner now freed from his illusions of reality wants to free the rest of the prisoners too. So, he goes back into the cave to release the others. He is of course now blinded by the lack of light and the prisoners conclude that the exposure to light is painful and anyway, because of all of the totally weird stuff he is telling them about, he is nuts. They decide that they should get rid of him.

As we all know, Socrates was executed by the Establishment and Plato was sold into slavery.

The allegory is a metaphorical representation, an effort on the part of Plato to communicate what The Wise Ones have always known and a developing hard science has been trying to tell us since the Renascence. We of course know what happened to Galileo when he tried to point out to the Establishment that the Sun was the center of the solar system, a fact that had been know and demonstrated for a several thousand years.

This issue, the difference between the REAL and illusion, has been at the core of humanities struggle from the beginning. Plato, a Master of the Wisdom who along with another Master whom we know as Socrates, was Teaching in Athens. In his Allegory of the Cave https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Allegory_of_the_Cave Plato, who was totally conscious of the fact of the multidimensional universe, using the only tools available, metaphor and the dialectic, demonstrated with utter clarity the infinite unbroken chain  of thought which links the dimensions of Energy or Reality with the thought created dense material forms which make up the material world.

The further removed from the Idea, the deeper into the cave of illusion, the less real is the formulation. The greater the striving to manifest the Idea in its purest possible form, the more accurate or Beautiful is the representation of Truth. As another visionary teacher/poet pointed out, “Beauty is Truth and Truth is Beauty”. We do not expect that individuals who are still living in the cave of intellectual ignorance to understand this simple statement of the REAL. Only the heart can comprehend a metaphor.

To say that to strive to build systems and character that more and more clearly out picture the Images of Truth, Ideas like Liberty, Freedom Equality, Justice, is unrealistic, is simply ignorance. It is to deny humans that which makes them human. The allegory is thus the story of every individual who has ever brought Light into the darkness of the great illusion of reality which imprisons us in a cave of ignorance, a cave from which we, humanity, have been struggling to free ourselves since the Beginning.

Basically, Truth consists of what we think of today as the Laws of Cosmic Physics. For Plato these Laws were embodied in a number of totally abstract, that is formless, IDEAS, which exist in the “formless world of Being”. These ideas are simply “images” of Truth such as Beauty, Justice, Liberty. These Truths, are eternal and everywhere present in Cosmos.

The Plato/Socrates Teaching and the revelations that accompanied them were deemed by the then Establishment to be “corrupting the youth of Athens.” (Truth always seems to have this “corrupting” effect, that is the determination to get out of the Establishment’s cave,  on the still alive ones. Youth has little to do with chronological age. It is a matter of Consciousness. The Wise Ones are always like little children, pure, loving, inclusive fearless, whole hearted…) Subsequently Socrates, who was the apparent Head of the Academy, was tried for these crimes, found guilty and sentenced to death. Plato was eventually sold into slavery.

This of course is the Establishment’s old age way of getting rid of “trouble makers”, those who would dare reveal the Truth. Incidentally in cases where mock trials are not available there is no hesitation to use assassination or murder. Think of Martin King and the Kennedys.

Today the present incarnation of the ancient Establishment seeks the control of the U.S. and desires to return the entire Planet to the rule of the “Deserving Few”. The DF’s are employing the ancient tools of materialism to continue to block humanity’s evolution. Basically, they maintain that if one cannot weigh or put a coat of paint on something it does not exist; it is not “real”. So all of the IDEAS upon which human evolution is based and toward which we have, forever, been striving are “idealistic”, dreams, fairy tales which are not achievable because they do not exist.

The Deserving Few mask their halfway hearts through the distortion and manipulation of common sense which they ironically refer to as “hardheadedness”.  While protecting their own wealth, prestige and position, they wear the sheep skin of being practical, hard-nosed “realists”. Those who strive for Principles are denigrated as foolish Idealists. Nice people, but they are just unreal. They believe in dreams of liberty and freedom for all which is an unachievable dream. And in its place the Hard Heads offer what they call practical or pragmatic, achievable things.

Their positions are natural effects of their mind identification with a one dimensional material world which they see as REAL. They are not necessarily evil, but in the ignorance of their intellectual fixations and the inability to see Reality, they consider concepts like Liberty and Justice to be non-sense. They point to the fact that such things are only ideal dreams, the do not exist.

The intellect rather than the heart drives their plans. Only the Heart can comprehend a metaphor, or the Plan.

The greatest hindrance to the evolution of either an individual or Humanity as a whole is the identification with where we are, our comfort with what we have either material stuff or our conclusions about what constitutes reality and value. Try getting a lover of gold to see that the gold is just a metal, a relatively dense form of matter, and that possession of multiple tons of it does not and will not make him a better person. Or try releasing a fanatic of this or that religion. Like the dinosaurs of old, they are trapped and dying in their canyons of comfort.

As was said long ago, “From the beginning they struggled, From the beginning we conquered!” We will  not be dying with them!

Ideas are not dreams. Ideas are “images of truth”. “… the images of Truth, which you call ideas, rule the karma of the world. It is astonishing to see how images of Truth participate in the spatial battle. While the multitudes disintegrate in a blind fury of ignorance and betrayal, the thoughts of Truth weave their heavenly nests, which for real evolution are far more vital than any worship by entire nations.” Agni Yoga #122
Tom, February 2016
