THE STAR SIRIUS & Rules for the Skyroad
Towards the close of their mission on the Planet Earth the Co-operators began to comprehend more fully the significance of their experience of identical at-one-ness. They also had apprehended somewhat about the nature of the Principle of Freedom as it expressed on that great Star Sirius. It was understood that when a human being of Planet Earth attained to a certain level of conscious awareness in which the nature of Oneness was revealed through their life and words, when cleavage within the mental faculty had ceased to exist, and they had entered into the realm of synthesis, then that being was accepted into the Lodge on Sirius as a lowly beginner. That exalted Lodge on Sirius was the higher counterpart to Earth’s Hierarchy.
It was obvious that such an entity was not suddenly plucked from the surface of one planet and dropped upon another. It was understood that just as Earth’s inhabitants came to understand that the highest centre on Planet Earth, known as Shamballa, was not a place but a position in consciousness, so it was that the entering of the Courts on Sirius had to do with a movement in conscious awareness, a position in consciousness.
So it was realized that the experience of identical at-one-ness, as it expressed between the Co-operators while resident on Planet Earth, and which they eventually perfected in their fully conscious realisation that the apparent separation caused by planetary time and distance had no power to separate them one from another, was actually by way of a preparatory sensitivity, a ‘door-opener’, to a fully conscious experience of entering within the Freedom known in the Courts of Sirius.
It was understood by the Co-operators that if they were successful in their mission to the planet called Earth then the Earth humanity would be enabled to move much more rapidly in their evolution, eliminating the need for many of the preliminary and often arduous steps previously required for their advancement in consciousness.
They would know a joy and a strength and sense of freedom unknown before and which reflected, if as yet but dimly, that Sirian Principle of Freedom, a freedom which expresses to a completely unlimited extent and which exerts its influence upon the little planet called Earth.
In line with their work the Co-operators gifted a set of Rules for the Sky Road to their Earth brothers. Many times the human beings, in their Prodigal Journey, would put down an aspect of themselves into the world of form, leaving behind the memory of their true estate, forgetting their true identity, and, subjected to every lesson their world had to offer, honed their instruments of expression, developing and perfecting their innate divine powers in order to present themselves as true servers of Divine Life. Finally, entering into the totality of their being, they returned home and knew they had never left. With such realisation further sojourns on the planet proceeded without loss of the continuity of conscious awareness.
The Rules were given to speed this Humanity’s progress.
Rules for the Skyroad
One: Know yourself as a spiritual being.
Two: To know we must experience.
Three: Live from the point of knowing.
Four: What do you wish to know? Express it.
Five: You cannot be anything other than what you are.
Six: On a planet of opposites it invariably happens that in approaching reality one begins by seeing everything back to front. Try starting from the other end.
Seven: To uncover reality, learn the art of comparing ‘what is not’ with ‘what is’ rather than comparing two things in the realm of opposites. The former brings revelation; the latter is merely a judgement.
Eight: In the past a path to the centre was indicated. Understand that the centre is everywhere present.
Nine: The stages of the past are the hindrances of the present.
Ten: Listen to the Word, not the world.
Eleven: There is all the time in the world and nowhere else. Do not waste it.
Twelve: Know that the Principle of Freedom permeates all substance.
