from Discipleship in the New Age volume 2 and Master DK:
“Humanity can now intelligently work with the presented Plan, and this for the first time in human history. I would have you note this. Men can now do their little share in bringing the divine purpose into manifestation because they have now unfolded the needed mental capacity.” pg. 223/24
Part 1 of this series asserted that humanity is the youngest kingdom on planet Earth and is the current focus of creative activity by the planetary life. Current focus signifies that the evolutionary development of the other kingdoms of Earth’s manifestation are now living out their divine design, doing so through natural and ongoing unfolding. Humanity is the newest planetary “Word made flesh.” In the continuous unrolling intention for which Earth exists, humanity is the newest and youngest expression. Everything in creation is this Word; word symbolizing the vibration of macrocosmic intention.
Part 2 related Taurus to the process of illumination for humanity. Taurus rules the physical throat and the throat chakra and, therefore, by inference rules humanity (the planetary throat center: DK). That is evidenced through the primary and evolutionary demonstrations of Taurus: from self-oriented desire for tangible existence and all within the life of form, through the Path of refinement and creative expression, unto the Way of Illumination, which leads to Enlightenment.
The above quote from Master DK begins part 3. What is meant by the Plan? The definition is the same on a macrocosmic scale as in one’s life. A plan is a sequential and yet whole-istic unfolding of a set of follow-throughs in order to produce a certain result or set of results. A plan is a simple as a recipe, the necessary gathering together of ingredients, conditions and equipment for cooking, and ability to do all of these. Looking for a recipe or creating one begins with a desired and imagined result in mind. Then aspiration and willingness to apply effort, time, energy, as well as commitment to the goal, steadfastness and perseverance combined together will bring fruition. This is so on a planetary level as well.
At its simplicity, the Plan is light: to bring into multi-dimensional conscious expression the full spectrum of that of which electromagnetism (em) and its principles are. Why? Because light in its range of expressing is materialized Awareness. The esoteric word for that is fohat. Fohat and how to align with it as pure creative potential is what is being brought forth in the developing awareness of humanity. Electromagnetism is one component of fohat. Other components are electric fire and vibration. Fohat derives from ineffable Awareness as IT moves to create. Why or how is beyond conceptual ideation.
Space is Awareness as it IS: completely undisturbed primordial cosmic Thatness. No subject/object exists to cosmic Awareness. It is invariable. Awareness is its own state of ineffable holographic Awareness. Its expression is ITSelf and ITSelf is all expression. No observer or observed, Perceiver or perceived exists as far as this consistent beyond-concept Awareness is concerned. But all fractal iterations of awareness within Awareness perceive distinction.
Fohat is the first wiggle or arising of Awareness to express. Fohat is all that Awareness is, just a human being is all that monadic awareness-being is. Yet by nature of being the first (ie. only) movement within the Unperturbed, fohat is also the seed or spark of complete cosmic Awareness. Fohat, then, is an immeasurable fragment of all that Awareness, which is how fohat is electromagnetism, is dynamism, is cosmic unfolding, is electric fire, and more. Master DK states that “Fohat acts as the force which brings latency into activity and potentiality into demonstrated power. … Fohat has to do with active manifestation or objectivity.”1 Yes! Any perturbation within the smooth uninterrupted nature of primordial cosmic Awareness is, by fact of being a perturbation, that which demonstrates power, is latency being brought into activity, is the very process of objectification.
As such, light is a dynamic and ongoing demonstration of Awareness-Being. This is the simplicity of the cosmic intention for Earth. Note that Awareness-Being is a shift from Awareness-As-IT-Is and implies a doing or presenting. Doing what? Expressing the fullness of Awareness. To whom? Only to Awareness-Being ItSelf. Humanity, then, like all on planet Earth is an aspect of this cosmic fractal mirroring. As such, all life on Earth and Earth herself have one simple and ultimate design: demonstrate electromagnetism in every way possible given the conditions and possibilities because electromagnetism is fohat and electromagnetism presents all the qualities and aspects of fohat. This points to electromagnetism as a display and presentation of all aspects of Awareness-AS-IT-Is.
This overarching Plan of light, magnetic field, and self-perpetuation is evidenced within the kingdoms of Earth. Below is names a few points for each kingdom, but this idea holds much for observation and contemplation.
- The mineral kingdom shines, radiates, produces illumination and heat. (Heat/thermal radiation being a form of em.) Attraction/repulsion and all factors of combination or antagonism create chemical bond and coherency such that materialization can take place.
- The plant kingdom displays color (one of its manifestations of chemical bond and reaction). The chemical process of photosynthesis will one day be understood as the process whereby electro-magnetism self perpetuate each other. And the plant kingdom is the food source for the majority of all that lives on Earth. Plant matter, then, is fuel for bodies just as it is fuel for homes. These are forms of light, as in they are electromagnetic processes. Also, chemical bond demonstrates as relation/interdependence in the plant kingdom, and magnetic field is experienced through nature’s beauty and wonder. Finally, generosity is a high or lighted act. The plant kingdom gives everything to all beings.
- The animal kingdom, though vastly older than the human kingdom, is still young on Earth and earning how to express its part of the ultimate Plan. Nonetheless, magnetism and various wavelengths of light/sight and sound/vibration are used by all animals. The display of color also evidences an evolution designed by light. Relatedness expresses through the variety of relationships that animals have with one another and to other kingdoms. And, light is expressed through sound in the animal kingdom.
- The human kingdom adds the light of mind and intuition to all that has been expressed through the other kingdoms. This is not intellect as it expresses through all kingdoms in nature – which, of course, is light and an expression of the planetary design. Nor is intuition the same psychic knowing that arises through intimate connectedness. Mind is consciousness, self-aware awareness. Human beings also live the qualities of light that express through the older kingdoms but do so in a human way. Clarity, illumination, intuition, lightness of being, lightness of heart, kindness, understanding, and enlightenment are some ways through which humanity particularly manifests light on Earth.
“Humanity can now intelligently work with the presented Plan …” Presented is a double entendre:
- a) meaning that there is more to the overall planetary Plan than has been revealed and than humanity is currently capable of working with;
- b) it is a reference to Presented Attributes explained in Esoteric Psychology vol. 2 of the Master’s works. A presented attribute is a fundamental aspect of macrocosmic LIFE. The Master says that “naught can be said” about the macrocosmic LIFE which is Awareness-Being. However, humanity can comprehend some of the Attributes of cosmic LIFE as they present through the fractals of living expressions. Love/relationality, dynamism, perception, and reiteration of design are some presented attributes expressing through life.
All of this leads back to humanity as the planetary throat center. For analogy, the human throat chakra is the apparatus that translates primordial and cosmic vibrations of Reality into relative expressing concepts of reality. The human throat chakra is a wormhole or gateway connected to pure Awareness-Being and the gradations of its demonstration (planes of consciousness and states of being).
The human throat center is, thus, an apparatus of mind. It’s placement is above all of the relational chakras (sacral, solar plexus, and heart), and it is the downflow point for all the head centers into the incarnated life (crown, ajna, and alta major). Throat has a distinct relationship with its complement, the sacral center. The throat center works with the vibrations of divine idea and inspiration that require formulation of some kind while sacral center interacts with all layers of form (not to be read as only materialized form). The sacral has the ultimate preference of merging into a unity and then repeatedly reproducing the experience. In this way, the sacral center holds the secret of desire and the longing for satisfaction and contentment on a relative and ultimate scale. The throat center has the ultimate preference of diversity as the only unity. In other words, manyness expresses the limitlessness of which the throat center is an aspect (the macrocosmic unconditioned infinite void).
Humanity provides the latest planetary expression of manyness, as a reflection of limitlessness, through its particular forms of creativity. This is a factor regarding humanity as the planetary throat center. Manyness is the prerogative of creation; Nature bears witness to that. But the throat center is not referring to that type of manyness. Instead, it is the human capacity of mind for creativity and inventiveness that is referenced. An example is language. Though it is true that all animals have language or forms of communication, only humanity communicates in the variety of ways that it does. Furthermore, only humanity renders intuited or inspired concepts and understandings into a communicative form. Each nation or culture has its spoken language, rather like species of birds each with its own bird song; but there are common languages such as geometry, astrology, mathematics, music, dance, mime. There is body language (which animals express as well), the variety of written scripts and ideograms, and various sign or braille languages. Human communication is one fragment of the forms of creativity and inventiveness inferred by humanity as the planetary throat center.
Consider a group of children in a non-modernized culture (read non-screen time or before it). When sent out to play, their creative imagination is immediately engaged. To the children’s minds, everything they encounter is more than what it appears to be. The level of inventiveness is expansive, changeable, and spontaneous. Creative playing is also an example of joy and collaboration which is an expression of human light. This example suggests that as humanity matures to being less self-focused, a natural participation in the great creative endeavor of Earth will emerge. An aspect of this maturation will be human access to primordial unconditioned Awareness but this on a mass human scale because the throat center provides this access. Then the processes of creative manifestation will be in accordance with planetary design and cosmic primordial vibration (WORD). Master DK explains:
“I urge each and all (to) … renewed effort to fit themselves for service by a conscious and deliberate effort to develop the intuition and to achieve illumination. Every human being who reaches the goal of light and wisdom automatically has a field of influence which extends both up and down, and which reaches both inward to the source of light and outwards into the ‘fields of darkness’. When he has thus attained, he will become a conscious center of life giving force … , will stimulate, energize, and vivify all that lives that he contacts … . He will act as a transmitter of light in the darkness. He will dispel the glamour around him and let in the radiance of reality.
When large numbers of the sons of men can so act, then the human family will enter upon its destined work of planetary service. … All grades of matter meet in man, and all the states of consciousness are possible to him. Mankind can work in all directions … and bring heaven down to earth.”2
Master DK writes “Men can now do their little share in bringing the divine purpose into manifestation because they have now unfolded the needed mental capacity.” Why now? And, what does now mean?
Now refers to this point within the Aryan root race. The term Aryan root race means the long cycle of the evolution of human consciousness focused on the aspect of human mind. The root races are stages of evolution of human consciousness such that ultimately the full range of Awareness-Being is expressed through the spectrum of human existence. In other words, the planetary intention for humanity is that Awareness will be embodied as pure unmitigated Awareness, thereby providing that all existence will be known as Awareness-Being. Aryan derives from the Sanskrit word arya which means noble. Therefore, the focus of this cycle of human evolution is to express that which is noble: the fullness of mind. But, again, mind does not refer to intellect. Mind is a comprehensive word for Awareness expressing through compassion – the supreme creative activity – and wisdom – supreme understanding. Aryan also infers that as humanity awakens to the noble character of heart-mind (compassion-wisdom, innate lighted nature), humanity will recognize that all manifestation is noble, in fact that all is light.
This is the realization shared by mystics, poets, occultists, meditators and children. It is the striven for goal of yogis and mahamudra practitioners. The realization that all is light is, literally, represented in one of the symbols for the throat center: a sun with a multitude of radiating rays. This pervasive light is not to be read as only literal brightness but as:
- happiness, joy, and bliss,
- as intuition, clarity, lucidity, sparks of insight,
- as humor, ease, effortlessness,
- and as experiences that report beauty, harmony, deep contentment, and simplicity.
Humanity, the planetary throat center, is the current focus in planetary evolution of the form aspect. This is evidenced by humanity being the youngest kingdom on Earth. The mineral, plant, and animal kingdoms have matured adequately such that they are now self-directed, however, humanity is still coming to know its range of expression. For example, historically only a small proportion of human beings have excelled in full-spectrum human Awareness and its creative expression. Instead, the majority of humanity consider themselves as form (“I am this or that.”). This is tell-tale of humanity’s collective level of maturity within itself.
What is “the needed mental capacity” that has been attained? From Master DK:
“ (that)… his state of consciousness remains of a developing reaction to his environment, as registered by his consciousness, and in which he (stage by stage) becomes an integral factor. This integration into his environment, his absorption of its atmosphere, and his potency in progression are all related to the fact that he is created to receive impression and that he possesses a mechanism of response to all the facts of the divine expression in manifestation. … You see, therefore, how the theme of revelation runs throughout the entire evolutionary process; it must never by forgotten that step by step, stage by stage, expansion after expansion …, the divine WHOLE is realized by man.”3
Thus, the needed mental capacity has been the development of unitive mind and adding it to the nature-shared quality of intellect. Unitive mind makes a human being integral to planetary design, and because of unitive mind man seeks to integrate into the greater whole. The terms integral, absorption, and receive from DK are demonstrations of unitive mind. In other words, humanity has passed the mid-way point of the Aryan root race with its cultivation of consciousness such that a maturing of the nature of human mind is being realized. DK states: “Disciples then become agents of the divine will and are entrusted with the direction of energies, with the Plan and with the secrets, and the inspirations which are hidden in the Mind of God.”4
Humanity, then, as the planetary throat center (chakra) is the point of latency coming into activity. The latent quality or energy is Awareness itself. Awareness is creativity and the source of all creative processes. Awareness is the potential in all creation that is being nurtured to full expression. As humanity lives from its inner light (clarity, wisdom, truth of being, heartfulness, mindfulness, compassionately, ethically, relationally, inventively, philosophically, spiritually, in all ways possible), then humanity will be living according to its inner nature and intended design.
An analogy: a tree consumes from the soil, the sun, and the rain. It does so in order to produce its fruit and seed. While consuming that which it needs to survive and thrive, the tree produces life-giving oxygen, effects and conditions ground temperature, moisture and aridity levels, takes carbon out of the atmosphere, is a home for insects, birds, and animals, feeds a multitude of beings, and brings beauty visually and by sound into the world. A tree is planetarily mature in its expression of reason for being. These forms of living/giving by the tree are various manifestations of light and the electromagnetic spectrum. What the human form of this level of maturity is is hard to say. Why? Because as a collective, human beings are immature from a planetary evolutionary point of view. However, through human history there have been those who have brought forward the full creativity that the throat center infers and that a human being, by nature, is capable of expressing. Doing so, they have demonstrated the power: that of Light and lighted creative endeavors.
To sum up part 3:
- The Plan is light and to bring into multi-dimensional conscious expression the full spectrum of electromagnetism and the principles behind light (em).
- “Fohat acts as the force which brings latency into activity and potentiality into demonstrated power. … Fohat has to do with active manifestation or objectivity.”
- Humanity, then, like all on planet Earth is an aspect of this cosmic unfolding.
- The human kingdom adds the light of mind and intuition to all that has been expressed through the other kingdoms. This is not intellect as that expresses through all kingdoms in nature. Mind is consciousness, self-aware awareness.
- The human throat chakra is the apparatus that translates primordial and cosmic vibrations of Reality into relative, expressing concepts of reality. The human throat chakra is a wormhole or gateway connected to pure Awareness-Being and the gradations of its demonstration (planes of consciousness and states of being).
- The human throat center is, therefore, an apparatus of mind.
- The planetary intention for humanity is that Awareness will be embodied as pure unmitigated Awareness, revealing that all existence is Awareness-Being itself.
- The needed mental capacity has been the development of unitive mind, thereby adding this to the nature-shared quality of intellect.
- Humanity, then, as the planetary throat center (chakra) is the point of latency coming into activity.
