A New Tide Brings the Dawn of the New Era

Forces are realigning between the old world as it slowly destroys itself, and a new world rising out of the ashes

In a world where global events and forces are becoming more urgent and critical, our view of things is being brought to a higher vantage point, changing our perspective on everything from whole world issues through to our own personal way of living within that larger context. As we realise our interrelationship with our world and within a global community, our human view broadens. A larger realisation is gradually moving through the great field of human awareness and shifting our focus increasingly towards where need is greatest. This shift is inspired by the opening of the heart. Forces are realigning between the old world as it slowly destroys itself, and a new world rising out of the ashes and coming alive in the human heart.

Let us imagine this new world so that we will know how to recognise its first luminous shoots as they shine amongst the rubble of the old. Thus, we will draw the new world into being and, in turn, we will be drawn into its greater reality. As we invoke it, it is evoked in a magical, mutual resonance – for this world is the domain of the heart, the great magnet that brings everything together in realised oneness. Once we learn to see the new growth, all else pales behind its radiating presence.

…there is beauty every time somebody takes part in building the New World. This is the true domain of the heart. This longed-for purification of life gives rise to the solemnity that shines forth like an inextinguishable Light.” Heart, sloca 195

The journey into this new realm may appear long yet it is closer than we may yet realise

Can we imagine a world where the sustaining forces are those of Truth, Goodness and Beauty? Where everything is moving towards upliftment out of pain and suffering into increasing joy? Where love is the air we breathe and fear merely a pale ghost of the past? Where all is transparent and can be seen through resonance? Where the underlying urge is to give and to serve where needed? Where the heart’s knowing guides every thought, word and deed? Where our inner compass draws us to greater refinement and enlightenment? The journey into this new realm may appear long yet it is closer than we may yet realise as it lives in the human soul and reflects through the human heart.

In this new Age it is the human heart that leads the way into a new dispensation and a completely new world which embraces all who resonate with truth, goodness, and beauty.

As we realise and identify with this new world, our recognition will move through the vast plane of human consciousness and, like the wake of a boat sailing purposefully across a lake, it will stir an ever-expanding awakening and lift consciousness into a new rhythm, direction, and purpose. In the past, wise Teachers have come bringing new understanding that spread through human consciousness and inspired the great lines of spiritual approach embodied in the world religions. In this new Age it is the human heart that leads the way into a new dispensation and a completely new world which embraces all who resonate with truth, goodness, and beauty. There dwell the Great Teachers and there the Coming One will appear as we open the eyes of the heart. Such is the heart’s power.

The power of the heart overcomes absolutely anything. The heart is able to know the meaning of events that happen far away. The heart is able to soar, thereby strengthening the necessary connections. The heart is able to partake of the distant worlds. Try this simply by transmission of the will of the brain, and you will perceive what is different about the will of the heart. The Epoch of Maitreya is the Age of the Heart! Only with the heart can you fathom the value of Maitreya’s treasures! Only with the heart can you understand how greatly all accumulations and all straight-knowledge are needed for the future.” Heart, sloca 74

The cosmos moves to the mutual interactions of all its elements as each part seeks the harmony and direction to which it is inherently drawn by the heart’s knowing. This seeking sounds through all layers of consciousness from an unconscious yearning for betterment, arising from the instinctual urge for life, to the purposeful invocative appeal of those awakened to a sense of the divine purpose that brings light and life to all dimensions of being.

The heart calls us to discern and stand firm against any remaining attachments to the outgoing stream…Then will the new tide bring the dawn of the new era and the radiance of the heart will warm all beings.

While an enlightened sense of spiritual purpose lifts and lightens as it moves through consciousness, a separative and exploitative purpose can spread a stain of fear and chaos behind it. One is uplifting and uniting, the other oppresses and divides. In these turbulent times of the shift into a new civilisation at a higher turn of the spiral of human evolution, we can strengthen the magnetic pull of the new tide to overcome the undertow of the outgoing one. The heart calls us to discern and stand firm against any remaining attachments to the outgoing stream as they rise to the surface in the turbulence of the opposing tides. Then will the new tide bring the dawn of the new era and the radiance of the heart will warm all beings.

Just as the sun is the heart of the system, the human heart is the sun of the organism. There are many sun-hearts, and the Universe represents a system of hearts; that is why the cult of Light is the cult of the heart. To understand this abstractly means to leave the heart out in the cold; but as soon as the Light of the sun-heart comes alive, the need for the magnet’s warmth will make it shine forth like a true sun. It has been said: “Let your heart lead you in crossing Santana.” That is how you can make the concept of the heart resistant to the cold. You can look upon the rhythm of the heart as the rhythm of life. The Teaching about the Heart is as bright as the sun, and the warmth of the heart speeds as swiftly as a sunbeam. Everyone has felt astonishment at how a ray of the rising sun can instantly insulate everything from the cold. The heart can do the very same thing!
I am speaking of the warmth of the heart now that it is especially necessary. A thought surging forth in aspiration sets space on fire, while the warmth of the heart is a constant hearth. Courage dwells in the warmth of the heart—remember this! The manifestation of the dark forces acts like frost on a sown field. Only the heart’s warmth provides a radiant shield. But just as we conduct tests on light waves with delicate care, we should approach the heart with caution and solicitude.” Heart, sloca 62

Let us attend now to the new Life that is ready to be born

The fruits of the Garden of the Soul ripen through the loving husbandry of the heart. Let us attend now to the new Life that is ready to be born in all its exquisite splendour through the human heart. An ancient scripture teaches of the inner growth that leads to the new world:

When the sun progresses into the mansion of the serving man, the way of life takes the place of the way of work. Then the tree of life grows until its branches shelter all the sons of men. The building of the Temple and the carrying of the stones cease. The growing trees are seen; the buildings disappear. Let the sun pass into its appointed place, and in this day and generation attend ye to the roots of growth.” A Treatise on White Magic, page 426
