Wesak Wonders

Principle of Directed Purpose

Synthesis of spirituality is the rarest gift; it alone kindles the light of the world.
Nothing can be compared to the light of the world.
The light burns, but its ray is being sought.

- Agni Yoga, Leaves of Morya's Garden II, Illumination II: VIII:3

The Principle of Directed Purpose

While we gather together at Wesak for the annual Festival and Blessing of the Buddha, we can project our thoughts into some coming changes that are to be expected perhaps at some time in the near future.

Seventy-four years ago Master D.K. told us that the energies present at Wesak would prove to be a "Changer of Conditions" and a major turning point in the life of humankind, if all spiritually minded persons could bring themselves to achieve the needed degree of selflessness, disciplined purity and the resultant receptivity. (1)

The following year he also said at the Full Moon of May, while millions seek to come under the influence of the Buddha and receive his blessings, that at a time in the not too distant future The Buddha’s term of service will be over and He will return no more. This is because the coming Avatar will take His place in the minds and thoughts of the peoples of the world. The Buddha's task of reminding aspirants continuously of the possibility of illumination and His work of keeping a channel open for the light to irradiate human minds by annually piercing through light substance to the Earth is thereby nearly completed, and the time had nearly come when "in that light we shall see Light." (2)

There are now on the planet vast numbers of aspirants, disciples and initiates of all degrees who have been selfless, disciplined and receptive for many years and who now await the Avatar who is coming into the consciousness of humanity ~ bringing a new energy to our planet, which has been called the "Implementing Force of Universality". (3) This energy relates to the future and is in accord with the Continuity of Revelation of Divinity that has occurred down the ages.

Such revelations are given out in part to assist in the awakening of a prepared humanity to a new and wider vision. The Heart of God ~ impelled by the Law of Compassion ~ sends forth a Teacher, a World Saviour, an Illuminator, an Avatar, who gives the message which will heal, which will indicate the next step to be taken for our civilization, which will illumine a dark world problem and give to human endeavor an expression of a hitherto unrealised aspect of Divinity. (4)

We are told that both the Buddha and the Christ are part of the Love Force of the Heart Centre of the Planetary Logos, and that the Buddha represents the 12-petaled Lotus in the Head, while the Christ represents the 12-petaled Lotus in the Logoic Heart Centre. (5)

At this time of Wesak, we remind ourselves that

The entire secret of divine purpose and planning is hidden in [the sign Taurus], owing fundamentally to the relation of the Pleiades to the constellation, the Great Bear, and to our solar system. This constitutes one of the most important triangles in our entire cosmic series of relationships and this importance is also enhanced by the fact that the "eye of the Bull" is the eye of revelation. The underlying goal of the evolutionary process—"the onward rush of the Bull of God," as it is esoterically called—reveals steadily and without cessation the stupendous and sublime plan of Deity. This is the subject which light reveals.
          - Alice A. Bailey, Esoteric Astrology, p. 376

Let us be open to Revelation!

The Tibetan further tells us that the importance of the Wesak Festival is in part because three factors of importance to us are brought into relation:

1. The Buddha, the embodiment or agent of the Forces of Light can then be contacted and that which They seek to transmit to humanity can be consciously appropriated.

2. The Christ, the embodiment of the love and the will of God and the agent of the Spirit of Peace, can also be contacted and humanity can be trained to appropriate this extra-planetary type of energy. [Emphasis added].

3.  Through the Christ and the Buddha, humanity can now establish a close relationship with Shamballa and then make its own contribution—as a world centre—to the planetary life. Pervaded by light and controlled by the Spirit of Peace, the expression of humanity's will-to-good can emanate powerfully from this third planetary centre. Humanity will then for the first time enter upon its destined task as the intelligent, loving intermediary between the higher states of planetary consciousness, the super-human states and the sub-human kingdoms. Thus humanity will become eventually the planetary saviour.

          - Alice A. Bailey, The Externalization of the Hierarchy, p. 162-163

Can we imagine that humanity will also one day become the intelligent, loving intermediary between all states of planetary consciousness, the sub-human kingdoms with extra-planetary cosmic energies?

Now that the Buddha has anchored the energy of the Light of Illumination on Earth, and Christ has anchored the energy of Spiritual Love, we await the coming Representative of Divinity who will convey the Synthesis of these two forces of Love. We will also be informed of the reasons these energies had to be established not only on our planet and for the Planetary Purpose, but also for the solar system and our Cosmic Source as well, before the energy of Synthesis may be accepted and anchored.

This understanding has to do with the Principle of Directed Purpose, which establishes the consummation of God’s Purpose, planned from the very beginning and yet manifests the stages of the Plan to implement that Purpose in the coming Age.

We know that Humanity is scheduled to take the Third Initiation of Transfiguration at the end of the time period of this fifth rootrace, when the presently dominating human incarnations will have reincarnated as more evolved beings, and that this occurrence is only the beginning of a vast process with a stupendous outcome in view.

The Messenger Who will later come and express the Shamballa urge to synthesis, the hierarchical aspiration towards love and the desire of humanity for intelligent activity with combined power will gather all into Himself.  All these qualities will focus in Him, plus another quality or divine principle of which the race of men as yet knows nothing and for which there is, as yet, no name.  He will be a great and potent Avatar and is not along the line of our humanity at all.
          - Alice A. Bailey, The Destiny of the Nations, p. 141

It will be up to the World Group, for we are The Light of the World, to reveal the Hidden Mystery of the underlying goal of the evolutionary process and humanity’s part in the Whole Process as far as our planet, solar system and Cosmic Centre are concerned.

Conscious understanding of the evolutionary process on earth, which includes the evolution of consciousness through the processes of initiation into greater areas of awareness of the Divine Mind, gives us a clue as to why humanity was created. We will eventually achieve God consciousness and be brought back to our Origins, so that we may fulfill our Destiny and responsibilities to the Whole. 

Brother-Sisterhood among all peoples and nations, and our love and care for the lower kingdoms in nature, will become a fact once the realization of the relationship of all parts of the Planetary Whole has become firmly established in human consciousness.

When we achieve the understanding that the Planetary Whole and our solar system are parts of the Cosmic Whole, and that humanity has a part to play within that larger Whole, we will begin the process of achieving our Divine Destiny.

We can attempt to expand our thought even further, as we dare conjecture a very small part of the function of our Cosmic Logos within that larger Whole. Master DK gave us the information that the human Monad is to our Planetary Logos what the third eye is to Man (6). And we can wonder if the Cosmic Monad serves the same function for Parabrahman!

Only a minor part of reality is cognized by humanity.
The Cosmic Eye is tensed in contemplation of reality.
Humanity dwells in a restricted reality; in the human
conception reality is limited to that which is visible.
Space testifies to the correlation of processes and effects.
Hence, while a process may be confined to the invisible
spheres, it nevertheless creates reality.
The law of fiery transmutation pertains to the same creativeness of Fire.
Hence, the centers create invisibly.
This psycho-creative reality intensifies all vital actions.
Therefore, the transmissions of spirit and thought
through the fiery centers imbue the space.
