In this book the scientific relation of matter and consciousness is discussed as evolution progressively affects the atomic substance of all forms. The “ atom” emerges as a miniature but complete replica of the energy structure common to all forms of life-cosmic, planetary, human and subhuman. This MP3 CD-ROM includes seven lectures on conciousness which covers The Evolution of Man, The Thinker; The Goal of Evolution; Cosmic Evolution and more
A nation is subject, as a man is, to the impact of energies emanating from solar and cosmic sources. These energies influence the nation as a whole through the "mechanism of response" equivalent to the Monad-soul-personality constitution of a man. Different nations are more receptive to some energies than to others; and all nations, subject to the evolution of national consciousness. have a destiny before them which is literally based on the qualities and the principles of the particular ray energy seeking expression through the national soul.
Education should be a continuous process from birth to death. It is essentially a process leading to reconciliation of the human and divine elements in the constitution of a human being. Right relationship between God and man, spirit and matter, the whole and the part, should be a prime objective of educational techniques.
This book discusses the interdependence of all states of consciousness and kingdoms in nature within the planet. It shows the interaction between humanity, the Hierarchy and Shamballa, and sets out the essentials of Plan and Purpose which influence human affairs. The process of the externalisation of certain ashrams within the Hierarchy and the practical effects of the process are given in detail.
Narrated by a volunteer for the Lucis Trust. This CD-ROM contains MP3 files playable on any MP3 supported device.
The five initiations of the Master Jesus during His life in Palestine are known as the Birth, Baptism, Transfiguration, Crucifixion, Resurrection and Ascension. Through these five stages on the Way, we follow the Master from Bethlehem to Calvary. These experiences are both symbolic and actual, setting guideposts along the way of the disciple. They exemplify the experience of the human soul through the five stages of its spiritual journey and can be invaluable to individual man facing the vast span of the same five-fold experience.
The development of the intellect, while necessary, is a means to an end. The intellect should become a means of penetrating into new dimensions of thought and consciousness, and of awakening the intuitive faculty of "pure reason". Through occult meditation the gap is bridged between the threefold mind and the intuition.
World glamour--the sumtotal of human ignorance, fear and greed--can dissipate through the clear, inclusive thinking of those in whom the soul (Christ) principle is awakening. Glamour results from a negative emotional focus; the dissipation of glamour depends on "illumined thinking".
An initiation is an expansion of consciousness—a means of opening the mind and heart to a recognition of what already exists in reality. One of the great values of this book is that it stretches the mind towards a new conception of the intense activity involved at all levels of consciousness on the planet to create conditions in which evolutionary growth can proceed. This MP3 CD-ROM includes 19 chapters covering the work of the planetary Hierarchy and some of the responsible workers within the Hierarchy: Founding, Departments, Lodge of Masters, Path of Initiation, Rules for Applicants and more.
This volume is an original paraphrase, with commentary, of the Yoga Sutras of Patanjali. The Yoga Sutras are of ancient origin, first reduced to writing by Patanjali, who is considered the founder of the Raja Yoga School. Control of the mind and its illumination by the soul are brought about through the practice of Raja Yoga.
Six basic world problems, (the psychological rehabilitation of the nations, the children, capital and labour, minorities, the churches, and international unity), with many ramifications, continue to present humanity with opportunity for progress. A perspective on these problems is shown in this book; the spiritual factors and subjective causes are related to the outer appearances and effects on the world scene.
Many religions today expect the coming of an Avatar or Saviour. The second coming of the Christ, as the world Teacher for the age of Aquarius, is presentad in this book as an imminent event, logical and practical in the continuity of divine revelation throughout the ages. The Christ belongs to all mankind; he can be known and understood as "the same great Identity in all the world religions".
It is an established and accepted occult fact that the soul works through the mechanism of the threefold personality in stimulating the three worlds of human evolution—the mental, the emotional and etheric/physical planes of consciousness. It is said that the aspirant to discipleship really needs to know only two things: the constitution of man and the next step ahead. In this book the way the human constitution actually functions in its component parts is made abundantly clear. It is an accepted goal for the aspirant that he learns to make of his personality equipment an instrument for the soul to use.
The entire subject of telepathic communication can be approached under a more subjective designation or name, but one which is interpretive of the more universal and prior stage than that of direct telepathic reception. The occultist ever approaches the subject connected with the evolutionary process from the angle of the whole and then the part, from the periphery to the centre, from the universal to the particular. Among Themselves, the Masters do not deal with telepathy as a science warranting consideration, endeavour and impartation; They are concerned primarily with the Science of Impression.
Five volumes have been written under the overall title of A Treatise on the Seven Rays, based on the fact, the nature, the quality and the interrelationship of the seven streams of energy pervading our solar system, our planet and all that lives and moves within its orbit. These two volumes go extensively into the psychological make-up of a human being as the life, quality and appearance of an incarnating, evolving spiritual entity. They also relate the circumstance of a human psychology to world conditions and to future possibilities.
This book contains the Fifteen Rules for Magic (for soul control)--the soul, the white Magician, becoming manifest through its own inherent "magical" powers. The human being is essentially and inherently divine. The soul is the means whereby mankind evolves a consciousness of divinity, redeems gross matter and liberates the pure flame of spirit from the limitation of form.
Alice Bailey's work developed as a duality—her discipleship service to her own Master, Koot Humi, which included the establishment of the Arcane School; and her initially reluctant agreement to work with the Tibetan, the Master Djwhal Khul, in the writing of a series of books representing the next phase in the continuity of the Ancient Wisdom teaching for the present and the immediate future. Thirty years work was planned. When this had been accomplished and within 30 days after that period, (in December 1949), Mrs. Bailey gained her release from the limitations of the physical vehicle.
Throughout the books of Alice Bailey we frequently come across arresting suggestions and ideas. Many of these are brought together in this book. Arranged in alphabetical subject order they form an ideal introduction to the books as a whole. Topics include: The Ancient Mysteries; Courage; Crisis; Guidance; Joy; Mind; The New Age; Visualisation.
