USA 2008: Hercules Test in Scorpio
30 August 2008Letter to the Esoteric Community: United States 2008
"...we are no longer dreamy outcasts. We are practical visionaries sharing a common goal: the greatest good of the greatest number."
"Hopefully, the tide has already turned. As of today (Oct 4, 2008), the victory of the progressive forces in the USA 2008 presidential election seems inevitable. Let's pray that no insane fanatic will delay the future with another anti-JFK/MLK/RFK bullet. A WW-III may be at stake. "
Recent past performance is the best indicator of near future performance. Dean Baker was right then; it's likely that he's right now. Let's heed his advice.
Stepping outside the moral "Matrix:" from self-righteousness to moral humility.
The New Group of World Servers holds steadily to the "Noble Middle Way" (as the Buddha called it) and seeks the decent burial of old forms, the implementation of that which is new and the restoration of that which has, in the past, proved useful and good and which could form the living germ of the new creation.

In an ancient scripture of India, The Bhagavad Gita, the disciple Arjuna stands faced with the same issue. He is involved in a great battle between two branches of the same family—really between the higher and the lower self—and he, too, questions what he shall do. Shall he go ahead with the battle and the test, and so triumph as the soul? Shall he assert his divinity and defeat the lower and the non-divine?
A compilation and commentary
"... the objective of all inner training is to develop the esoteric sense, and to unfold that inner sensitive awareness which will enable a man to function, not only as a Son of God in physical incarnation but as one who also possesses that continuity of consciousness which will enable him to be interiorly awake as well as exteriorly active. This is accomplished through developing the power to be a trained Observer ... It is well to remember that even the members of the Hierarchy profit by the opinions and advice of those disinterested disciples who can be trusted to rightly recognise and interpret the need of the hour." -DK
True love or wisdom sees with perfect clarity the deficiencies of any form, and bends every effort to aid the indwelling life to liberate itself from trammels... This it achieves not by blindness, but by discrimination and wisdom, separating contrary vibrations and placing them in position diverse.
Now that Pluto is going through Capricorn, it is not only going to bring out the financial corruption of Wall St, but it is going to deeply affect the Jewish Capricorn personality, plus its first ray soul, ruled in part by Pluto.
Do not live on income from money. This profit is stained... Instead of stock market speculation let there be striving for discoveries, supported by cooperative societies... The crime of speculation has to be prosecuted relentlessly, because the Earth is sick from speculation... Is it possible to speak about stock exchange speculations on Jupiter, or about brothels on Venus? The concept is simply unthinkable. -M.
... be cautious in all business and financial dealings. Live a simple life. Focus on the essentials. Work with the Hierarchy in meditation and right-action, to bring about the needed changes to prepare the way for the Christ’s return - symbolically, the dawning of the true Age of Brotherhood, of Love and Wisdom.
What Is Simple Living?
"Living in a way that is outwardly
simple and inwardly rich."
Simple living — aka voluntary simplicity — has just about as many definitions as there are individuals who practice it. Simple living is not about living in poverty or self-inflicted deprivation. Rather, it is about living an examined life — one in which you have determined what is important, or "enough," for you, discarding the rest.
We need a serene, cool-headed, truthful leader, respectful of international law, open to new ideas where old ones have failed, mindful that the survival of the planet is at stake, and willing to save it. We have been warned that a WW-III will be the end of it. We must all work to prevent such tragic event.
We, The World
Tipping Point Initiatives
(to move humanity off the path of catastrophe
and towards a world that works for all)
I stand for the Soul of Humanity, for unity above polarity, for love rather than hate.
Let all those who feel strongly about the issue of religiously inspired hate in today's world, read carefully and repeat daily the Mantram of Unification, AND take it to heart. I mean, really DO IT!
We absolutely must NOT let ourselves be divided by the atrocities prevalent on opposite sides of the Poles.
"Hatred ceaseth not by hatred".
I am appalled by the extremism I see, but if I become internally violent against it (using the Martian vibration) I am not acting as a member of the Hierarchy would act. They condemn the sin but not the sinner. Therefore, my method must be entirely different, based on love and will and steady control.
We must learn to stand with massed intent against the horrors which would be perpetrated by the irrational mind and inflamed emotions.
The "middle way" is not between but 'above' with the perspective which unites the good in the opposites and sees the contending ignorance and evil. It is Hierarchy's principled, and elevated stance. We don't want the status quo, we want unitive advancement.
Mantram of Unification
Humanity is One and I am One with All.
I seek to love not hate,
I seek to serve and not exact due service.
I seek to heal, not hurt.
Let pain bring due reward of Light and Love.
Let the Soul control the outer form,
And life and all events,
And bring to light the Love
that underlies the happenings of the time.
Let vision come, and insight.
Let the future stand revealed.
Let inner union demonstrate
And outer cleavages be gone.
Let love prevail.
Let all people love.
Do I think the message of sharing--sharing wealth, sharing energy, and sharing inevitable suffering, sharing as Aquarian 'meritocratic' distribution--represents the soul of America? Yes, I do. Selfish, personal people will detest such sharing.
I ask, "What would Christ say?" Would He support the aggressive selfishness linked to a Capitalist-Calvinist (hardly Christ-like) view of the world, based more on social Darwinism than on the truly Christian message of brotherly love? I say, He would not.
