Like sunlight sparkling across a vast ocean, the great sea of human consciousness is twinkling with realisations as though constantly sparked by a surging current. The best and the worst are rising to the surface and into the forefront of our awareness and focussed attention; and their juxtaposition is revealing more about what is good, true and beautiful. Although reported in comparative terms, the polarities are no longer really horizontal – between nations, religions, political parties, ethnicities, racial appearance or whatever categories separate us. Instead the issues are increasingly global and vertical. They are about what is more true, what is better for the whole, about inclusiveness and acceptance of every part of that whole as being an element of its vast, diverse and essential beauty.
Human beings everywhere are beginning to see less in terms of separating categories and more in terms of shared life
…the human soul is beginning to flower through the storms and winds of change roiling around the world.
… the balance between harmony and evolution. These correlative concepts are often taken as being contradictory, but, in reality, can evolution ever be inharmonious? And how can harmony be created without evolution? Yet people prefer to understand harmony as an immobile and inactive state, and use it as an excuse for their irresponsibility. While the world is in convulsion people prefer to sit in sweet oblivion, and call their benumbed condition by the lofty word ‘harmony.’
However, the strong chords of harmony are tensed, and as they expand they contribute to evolution. Similarly, the benefit of evolution is in its continuously accelerating motion. It is beautiful to realize that the world is perpetually evolving, in ever-increasing striving and motion. People do not look into the future, but secretly dream about an impossible static condition. But there can be no static evolution. The spiral of evolution is an eternal ascent that even the convulsions of chaos cannot arrest.
In their earthly condition people cannot always notice the beneficial growth. All growth comes with pain, with lightning, and in storm, and only a perfect consciousness can perceive the radiance of Truth. Every evolving thinker must transmit his understanding of Truth while on Earth. If he does not apply Truth in life, man is not worthy of being called a thinker. Thought is life, and life is moved by thought.
Thus you realize the two foundations of Our Life. We live in harmony for the sake of evolution. We must evolve, otherwise We shall be transformed into mummies. One must be able to love the movement of evolution, for in it eternity is realized.” Supermundane, 97
The human heart is growing in power and presence as we sever ties with the limited view of the past and begin to build a new era
…how can we really grasp the breadth and depth of the human heart’s embrace and uplift?
Some Leaders point the way, like the Canadian Prime Minister: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=B2ubeSbkkEk
And all this heart-sharing is being realised (made real) through the informal, free-flowing interconnections enabled through social media and the World Wide Web, the internet. The very term, “internet”, points to the inner heart of the world where a constant stream of connection and communication flows, reflecting a great continuity of consciousness – stimulating us all to stay in touch and be aware within that mighty flow. Earnest students of the Ageless Wisdom have long aspired to a “continuity of consciousness” and yet it is more than an individual awareness. It is a great sea of sensitivity and we may focus into its dark depths of limited vision or rise to the surface for glimpses of the bright soul-bathed expanse that stretches beyond current limits.
Our human being-ness has the capacity to sense, visualise and imagine beyond all limitations
…What is this plan? When I speak of the plan I do not mean such a general one as the plan of evolution or the plan for humanity which we call by the somewhat unmeaning term of soul unfoldment. These two aspects of the scheme for our planet are taken for granted, and are but modes, processes and means to a specific end. The plan as at present sensed, and for which the Masters are steadily working, might be defined as follows:—It is the production of a subjective synthesis in humanity and of a telepathic interplay which will eventually annihilate time. It will make available to every man all past achievements and knowledges, it will reveal to man the true significance of his mind and brain and make him the master of that equipment and will make him therefore omnipresent and eventually open the door to omniscience. This next development of the plan will produce in man an understanding —intelligent and cooperative—of the divine purpose for which the One in Whom we live and move and have our being has deemed it wise to submit to incarnation. Think not that I can tell of the plan as it truly is… The development of the mechanism whereby a disciple may be en rapport with Those responsible for the working out of the plans, and the capacity to know (and not just dimly sense) that tiny aspect of the whole which is the immediate step ahead and with which cooperation is possible, that can be achieved by all disciples and should be held as the goal before all aspirants. …all can therefore strive towards achieving continuity of consciousness and at awakening that inner light which, when seen and intelligently used, will serve to reveal other aspects of the Plan and specially that one to which the illumined knower can respond and usefully serve.
To bring this about has been the objective of all training given during the past 400 years, and from this fact you can vision the utter patience of the Knowers of the race. They work slowly and with deliberation, free from any sense of speed, towards Their objective, but… They do have a time limit. This is based upon the Law of Cycles. It concerns the operation of certain periods of opportunity which necessarily have their term. During these times of opportunity, forces, influences, and energies are temporarily at work, and of these the Masters seek to make use.” A Treatise on White Magic, page 403-4
…our “ship navigator” is the Master who directs our attention to Those Who guide us through our subtle perception
I affirm that however small it may be, any motion made in the name of the future breaks through the strata of tension in the atmosphere. All the rubbish from the past that has piled up is cut away by the sword of the future. The shield of the future is the most reliable and beneficial. People should not assume that the future is inaccessible, for it is being created tirelessly and continuously – and the heart is a guarantee of the future.” Heart, 541.
“Entering the stream
I do not look back
For everything as I have known it
Has passed away
And I throw my faith entirely
on to one guide”
