Divine intervention

Let the Lords of Liberation issue forth
Let them bring succour to the sons of men
Let the Rider from the Secret Place come forth
And coming, save
Come forth , O Mighty One
 
Let the souls of men awaken to the light
And may they stand with massed intent
Let the fiat of the Lord go forth: The end of woe has come!
 
Come forth O Mighty One
The hour of service of the saving force has now arrived
Let it be spread abroad, O moghty One
 
Let Light and Love and Power and Death
Fulfill the purpose of the Coming one
 
The WILL to save is here
The LOVE to carry forth the work is widely spread abroad
The ACTIVE AID of all who know the truth is also here
 
Come forth O MIghty One, and blend these three
Construct a great defending wall
The rule of evil NOW must end
 
 
In considering the subject of Avatars we would like to point out that (from the standpoint of mankind at his present point in evolution) Avatars are of two kinds, as might be expected when the consciousness of humanity is subject to the control of the pairs of opposites. These two are:
 
1. Those Avatars Who are the embodiment of the Angel of the Presence, whether that Presence is the soul in man, the planetary Logos, some extra-planetary Entity, some Cosmic Being, or an Expression of Cosmic Good.

2. Those Avatars who are embodiments of the Dweller on the Threshold, whether that Dweller is the human Dweller on the Threshold, planetary Forces of Materialism, or some Aspect of Cosmic Evil.
 
Let us attempt to make this analogy a little clearer. Just as in the case of individual man there comes a point in his life experience when the Angel of the Presence is sensed, known, seen and recognised as the revealer of divinity, so in the history of the race of men, the same great illumination may come. Revelation confronts the aspirant. Revelation confronts humanity. God is known within the human heart. God is known by mankind. This recognition of divinity in its varying aspects is naturally a progressive one - each stage and each life bringing its own revelation of the beauty of divinity and the glory of light more truly and clearly before the disciple. Similarly, there come cycles wherein the Dweller on the Threshold appears and confronts the aspirant, challenging his purpose and progress and blocking the door which leads to expanded life and liberation. The Dweller challenges the freedom of the human soul. So it is also in the life of a nation, a race, and humanity as a whole.

The Angel of the Presence indicates divine possibility, reveals to the attentive disciple the next step towards liberation which must be made, and throws light upon the immediate stage of the Path to Light which must be trodden. So does the Avatar Who reveals the Lighted Way to humanity.

The Dweller on the Threshold summarises in itself the evil tendencies, the accumulated limitations and the sum total of the selfish habits and desires which are characteristic of the material nature of the disciple. The Angel of the Presence indicates the future possibility and the divine nature. So does the Avatar. The Dweller on the Threshold indicates the past with its limitations and evil habits. So do those Avatars Who from time to time appear as the embodiments of evil and of the lower nature of mankind. And, my brother, They do appear from age to age.

Some cycles in a disciple's life present one aspect of a "confrontation" and some another. In one life he may be entirely occupied with fighting the Dweller on the Threshold or with orienting himself to the Angel of the Presence and permitting the divine conditioning energy to flow into him; he may be succumbing to the influence of the dread sum total of his evil and material desires or he may be drawing gradually nearer to the Angel. But - and this is the point of importance - it is he himself who evokes one or other of these manifestations. So it is with humanity. The call of humanity's soul, or of humanity's material nature, must evoke response, and thus an Avatar can manifest. It is the magnetic appeal or the massed intent of the disciple or of humanity which produces the manifestation. In other lives, the disciple may simply swing between the two poles of his being, with no conscious effort, no direct confrontation and no clear understanding of life purpose. So does humanity.

Eventually, however, there comes a life wherein the disciple is confronted by both the Dweller and the Angel simultaneously and the major conflict of his experience takes place. So it is today in the world. The spiritual and the material are in conflict, and humanity itself is the battleground.

Again, a correspondence to the Doctrine of Avatars can be seen in the disciple's individual life. When he has achieved right desire and has made a true effort towards correct orientation, then - when the conflict between good and evil is at its height - there comes a moment when he demands more light, more power, more understanding, and liberation to take his next forward step. When he can make this demand with firm intent and can stand steady and unafraid, response will inevitably come from the very Presence Itself. A manifestation of light and love and power will stream forth. Recognition of need has then evoked response. The conflict ceases; the Dweller departs to his own place; the Path ahead lies clear; the disciple can move forward with assurance, and a better life dawns for him.

So it is for humanity. A demand rises to the very gates of Heaven; the massed intent of humanity is that evil must end and a better and truer life become possible. At the moment of greatest tension and of difficulty the demand goes forth. Response comes. The Avatar appears and light pours in, making the way clear. New hope awakens and fresh determinations are made. Strength to establish right relationships streams through the body of humanity, and mankind emerges into a more spacious life, conditioned by truer values. A fusion becomes possible between the outer world of daily living and the inner world of spiritual realities. A fresh influx of love and light is possible.

Wisdom invokes potenties upon monadic levels

Another phase of Light is demonstrating itself as the result of the past, and that is Wisdom.  


Wisdom is also the enlightened application of knowledge, through love, to the affairs of men.  

 

It is as well understanding, pouring out everywhere as the result of experience.

 

The current revelatory phase (from 1975 on) - during which the Forces of Light, Love and Power, is bringing illumination to mankind - definitely invokes potencies which are to be found upon monadic levels of consciousness and upon what is occultly called the second plane of divine manifestation, where the Lord of the World Sanat Kumara and the three Buddhas of Activity dwell. 

 

When the world aspirants and disciples use this Invocation, the first phrase takes the consciousness to the Hierarchy of Light - the Masters of Wisdom, which is the intermediate centre between Humanity and Shamballa. It serves then to emphasise and establish a close rapport, blending and fusing the human and the hierarchical centres. This has already taken place and the Hierarchy uses this Great Invocation now with greater potency and carries the relation to a higher state and produces a blending with the Shamballa centre (recently in the year's 1975 and 2000), where the Forces of Light are found as embodied Presences and where Their focussed energy serves to provide great reservoirs of light, love and power. These are now available for planetary distribution, owing to the established relation between the three centres: Humanity, Hierarchy and Shamballa. The inflow of light, love and power to humanity is increasing when the disciples and aspirants of the world can be led to make the needed effort to stand in spiritual being and, from that poised attentive attitude, to invoke these great Entities. 


When the thought behind the Great Invocation can be carried high enough in the consciousness of those using it through a joint effort of the world disciples and the Hierarchy of Light - as well as being reinforced by the Forces of Light - then the Spirit of Peace and the Avatar of Synthesis can be invoked. 


On a lower turn of the spiral, the Wesak Festival enacts a similar invocation and process. It is a re-enacting and training process. There and at that time, the three Representatives of Shamballa within the Hierarchy - the Manu, the Christ and the Mahachohan - invoke the Buddha, Who in His turn is the transmitter of still higher Forces. He is invoked by a special mantram and transmits the appeal to the One Whose agent He is. If this Great Invocation which we are studying can be rightly said, the three great planetary centres can be related in a similar manner. 


The Lord of Civilisation, the Chohan R., representing humanity, the Maitreya (the Christ) representing the Hierarchy and the Lord of the World, linked through the Manu and representing Shamballa are be brought into a close relation so that the result will be the setting up of such a potent vibration and note that the Spirit of Peace and the Avatar of Synthesis will be invoked and contacted. 


It might, therefore, be noted that the Forces of Light express Themselves through the Hierarchy of Light and Their major effect is the illumination of the minds of men with love and light. This precipitates upon the mental plane. The personality or the form aspect of humanity is thereby pervaded and illumined. Thus the third great planetary centre, Humanity, becomes creative and magnetic, and two divine aspects - intelligence and love - will reach fruition upon the physical plane, making it possible for the first aspect and the will of God (understood by humanity as the Plan) to be consciously carried forward on earth in conformity with the activity instituted at Shamballa. The will of God is purpose and this is to be recognised consciously by man.


The Angel of the Presence in conformity with the divine pattern 


Today the moment of adequate tension in the life of humanity has been reached. The Angel of the Presence and the Dweller on the Threshold are at grips at some level. But the cry is going forth for aid, for relief, for revelation, for light, and for strength to shake off that which is evil. The massed intent of the world aspirants is directed towards the world of truer values, towards better human relations, more enlightened living and a better understanding between all men and peoples. With massed intent they stand, and their ranks are steadily increasing. With an increased focus of the will-to-good, with a clearer apprehension of future possibility, with a fixed determination that the world move forward in conformity with the divine pattern, and with an urgent cry for help, humanity stands expectant of relief. 


In every land there is a growing recognition that when mankind reaches the psychological point where, having done all, there is naught to do but stand, then some Expression of a divine determination to intervene will appear; there is a growing belief that human effort towards righteous action will be supplemented by the emergence of a divine Force, Person or Event which will bring the crises to an end. 


It might here be pointed out that in similar though somewhat less potent crises in the past, this divine intervention superseded human effort, but that it is hoped by Those Who are seeking to aid humanity that such intervention will today simply supplement human effort - a very different thing. 


Therefore, humanity everywhere today awaits the Coming One. The Avatar is sensed as being on His way. The second Coming (according to prophecy) is imminent, and from the lips of disciples, mystics, aspirants and all enlightened people in all lands the cry goes up, "Let light and love and power restore the Plan on earth." Those words are a demand, a consecration, a sacrifice, a statement of belief and a challenge to the Avatar Who waits in His High Place until the demand is adequate, and the cry clear enough to warrant His descent and His appearance.
