In order to celebrate and reflect the today heliocentric alignment between Saturn and Mercury in the fiery Sign of Sagittarius, here are some thoughts on the power of enlightened Mind to build the Future.
Saturn and Mercury (3rd and 4th Rays of creative Intelligence and Illumination) are the two solar Bearers of Light together with Venus (5th Ray: the Science of Mind and golden Construction of Forms), and their union on causal levels (heliocentric directions) give the opportunity to consciously imitate Their evolutionary Work.
The Relationship between the Three and Four is similar to the original one between Spirit and Matter, perfectly exemplified by the square-based pyramid, which combines Heaven and Earth.
In order to climb the Summits of Heaven one has to sacrifice what holds down, following a graduated program of rules and phases (see here).
The climb back up can only be led Above, by the Master/Heaven assumed as the Rule of Art, composing dissensions and solving resistances by generating the dynamic force (3) of Harmony (4): between parts, in and out, unit and many.
Harmony is the Goal or universal necessity, the splendour of Truth: It is the Centrality and the Beauty of Being.
We must ‘return’ to let our light shine: to rule our mind (manas – the human soul) with the power of love and wisdom (buddhi, the spiritual soul) in order to restore Heaven Harmony or Order on Earth.
“As yet but few of the human family work deliberately and consciously in mental matter only. The energy exerted by men is mostly kama-manasic or desire coupled with lower mind, with a preponderance, as might be expected, of desire force… The whole trend of evolution is to bring about ability to build in mental matter … the prominent workers and thinkers of the human family, under the direction of the Lodge [of the planetary Hierarchy], are engaged in three things:
a. The imposition of the newer and higher rhythm upon men.
b. The dissipation of the murky clouds of half-vitalised indefinite thought forms which surround our planet, thus permitting the entry of interplanetary force, and of force from the higher mental levels.
c. The awakening within men of the power to think clearly, to energise their thought forms accurately, and to hold in vital form those thought constructions whereby they may attain their objective, and bring about desired conditions upon the physical plane.”
Humanity is called to answer to the fourth stanza of the Great Invocation, which says: From the human centre “Let the Plan of Love and Light work out…”.
We know that a Plan for Humanity exists and is part of the planetary and solar one. We have traces from the Ancient Wisdom Teachings in this sense and in the last quarter of the 20th century some human ‘heart/minds’ have elaborated in response a Table of the Plan, built according to the Law of Sound and Number.
Since the Purpose can be understood through the Plan, we can say that the human Group has to illuminate the planetary Purpose. On this way, we can do anything but imitating the Hierarchy of Power, Love and Wisdom which rules our evolution and indicates how to operate according to the celestial Model.
On this respect and from the astrosophical perspective, the Plan is accomplished and reveals itself on the plane of the solar ecliptic, where the Luminaries continually trace and update it.
From the center, from the heartly mind, we try to understand the meanings of this major Plan and express it through our work.
This time of changing eras is the right one to sow the principles of a new Culture (which is also ancient) from which a new Civilization will descend, conceived according to the dictates of Aquarius, which incline toward group work, service, collaboration, order and the increasing power of the creative mind in order to pour ‘water of life’ into the thirsty world.
We therefore intend to build together a thought form based on these principles, to be layed as a foundation of the new world, and to impress it, from the causal level, into the general human mentality.
The Table of the Plan is a spatial matrix setting up a network of relationships where you can easily embark on a coordinated collaboration with all those who work for the realization of the Divine Plan on Earth. Our aim is to take this table, resonating with solar harmonies and numeric or universal rhythms, as a foundation for building the new Temple of Man and World, guiding back to the Culture of Heaven.
In summary, it is necessary to irradiate the hierarchical Order into the Heart of the One Humanity. We are called to constitute a manifest prototype of that planetary Order which exists on subtle planes and must be incarnated on Earth so that Hierarchy can be exteriorized.
This Order is the summit of Humanity, just as according to the esoteric Teachings the Real Government of Shamballa is the summit of Hierarchy.
Above and below correspond to each other and join. Order is Freedom.
“Rulership is not in crowns nor in crowds, but is in the cosmic expanse of ideas.
Thus, the Teachings of life complement each other, having no need to attract multitudes.”*
