A Greater Light is Beginning to Penetrate the Fog

In the midst of the political campaigning that precedes our country’s election day, it’s easy to get lost in the word-spin and sleight-of-speech that weave confusing cocoons around slogans of presumed truth. Yet voters are increasingly seeking to know what the real truth is behind it all, the reality beneath the rippling surface reflections. Human consciousness is unfolding into deeper and vaster realities and, from its expanding viewpoint, is beginning to see through the panoply of policies and catch-phrases that provide ammunition for the all too familiar war of words.

A new era is being born and a greater light is beginning to penetrate the surface fog

A new era is being born and a greater light is beginning to penetrate the surface fog of partial or manipulated truth. It brings a new energy that flows through a more enlightened vision wherein all is seen in its place through unfolding time and evolving space. We are realising that we share the same life. And, as we attune to the oneness of the great organic Life in which we live and move and have our being, we may find that the adversarial and competitive nature of our current institutions no longer serves and seems increasingly anachronistic.

We can already see it emerging as beams of new light begin to shine here and there

What might emerge to replace it? What might the new consciousness be like and how will it express itself in its social institutions? What might be its motivating power and from whence does it come? We can already see it emerging as beams of new light begin to shine here and there throughout our world. They are beacons which light up wherever wise hearts serve the genuine need of others and care for the world that supports us all. Their light ignites the hearts of those who come within its radiance. Thus the fire of love is carried from heart to heart, impelled by the wellspring of divine intention drawn forth and distributed through the pulse of the planetary heart.

…with the wave of will-to-good that is gathering quiet momentum and rising like a new flood through the decaying structures of a passing civilisation.

Their radiatory presence is not passive or static. It inspires others with its courage and willingness to flow with the wave of will-to-good that is gathering quiet momentum and rising like a new flood through the decaying structures of a passing civilisation. As it rises up it purifies and reorients, revealing the essential truths for a new era and inspiring a new expression of the glory and beauty of our world and the human heart that facilitates its life-flow.

And though we may question the quality, motive and source of the current political catch-phrases, they herald the rising potential for human consciousness under the new incoming energies – as the Tibetan Master foretold:

…A curious indication of the effect of the seventh ray magical work upon the mass consciousness is the growing use of slogans and of “catch phrases” … which are employed to bring about results and to sweep human beings into certain forms of mass action. This is the embryonic use of the Words of Power, and from a study of their tonal values, their numerological indications and their inherent potency, men will eventually arrive at vast magical achievements and creations, producing group activity and the appearance of certain forms of expression upon the outer plane.”

“…By his knowledge of ritual (which is the ancient codified means whereby the attractive and expressive nature of the energies to be employed are organised and related), by his understanding of the “Words of Power” (which he discovers by experiment) and by using the potency of sound, the disciple of the future will work and build the new world with its culture and civilisation.”

“After all, scientific formulas have reduced the most intricate and abstruse discoveries to a few signs and symbols. The next step is to embody these signs and symbols into a word or words, thus imparting to them what is esoterically called “the power of embodiment.” If I might express it this way, the ancient statement that “God spoke and the worlds were made” simply means that God’s formula for creation was reduced to a great Word which He sounded forth and the inevitable results followed. Something of this process on a tiny human scale will be seen happening in the coming age. …for this reason the emphasis in all teaching given is laid upon purity of motive…” The Destiny of the Nations, page 130-131

…many around our world are waking from this sleep of forgetfulness

In all great scriptures the essential truths are conveyed in so many ways that it might seem surprising that we sometimes live our daily lives as though oblivious of them. Yet many around our world are waking from this sleep of forgetfulness, roused by the growing reverberations from the break-up of the fabric of the passing era through climate change, pollution, war, economic collapse and the vast diaspora of refugees.

…we wake into a whole glorious realm

The essential divinity of man, the human soul, has been written about for eons and perhaps the time has come to realise it and to actually live as a soul in the world – as a divine embodiment. When our sense of “who we are” becomes that of a living soul rather than the material sheath with which we clothe it, we wake into a whole glorious realm which opens to us the freedom of life sharing with the Great Life of our world. As the poet, Rabindranath Tagore, describes:

My soul is alight with your infinitude of stars. Your world has broken upon me like a flood. The flowers of your garden blossom in my body. The joy of life that is everywhere burns like an incense in my heart. And the breath of all things plays on my life as on a pipe of reeds.”Rabindranath Tagore

The Tibetan Master also explained that:

All that IS is ever present. What we are concerned with is the constant awakening to that which eternally IS, and to which is ever present in the environment but of which the subject is unaware, owing to short-sightedness.” Telepathy & the Etheric Vehicle, page 54

…wherein all is seen according to its light, the light of the Soul.

Having reached the conscious identity of a soul, one becomes aware of that vast subtle dimension of life wherein all is seen according to its light, the light of the Soul. Illusions, glamours and false images, once protected within separating forms, have nowhere to hide. And it seems significant that much that was previously hidden from public witness is now being brought out into the light of the human soul and exposed through global media.

We are becoming conscious citizens of the Kingdom of Souls, not of this Earth but expressing through its grace by living as embodied souls.

We are becoming conscious citizens of the Kingdom of Souls, not of this Earth but expressing through its grace by living as embodied souls. Those Who guide us in this Kingdom lead through the free resonance of the heart and all share the light, love and life of a realm where nothing impedes their free flow. Christ taught that: “My kingdom is not of this world” But that Kingdom enters the world through our realisation of its eternal, life-sharing Presence – in the world but not of the world. Rabindranath Tagore conveys the livingness of heaven on earth:

Where is heaven? you ask me, my child,- the sages tell us it is
beyond the limits of birth and death, unswayed by the rhythm of day and night;
it is not of the earth.

But your poet knows that its eternal hunger is for time and
space, and it strives evermore to be born in the fruitful dust.
Heaven is fulfilled in your sweet body, my child, in your palpitating heart.

The sea is beating its drums in joy, the flowers are a-tiptoe
to kiss you. For heaven is born in you, in the arms of the mother-dust.”Rabindranath Tagore

…we become at-one with the soul in all.

The scriptures gave us the fundamental truth that: “the kingdom of God is within you.” As human consciousness expands its realisation into that kingdom, we become at-one with the soul in all. Then, as souls, we live by the underlying divine order of the world with its patterns and rhythms all serving the life pulse of the great divine embodiment, God, which ensouls and animates all things.

Purify your eyes, and see the pure world. Your life will fill with radiant forms
~ Rumi
