Life is loving synthesis in action.
Love (Will-to-Good) is based on realised unity and leading to expressed synthesis.
The basic Oneness underlying all forms and which the group of workers of today must immediately emphasise, is the fact of the kingdom of God, of the planetary Hierarchy.
Meditation is the instinctual mode whereby the Hierarchy - in response to the invocation from the three worlds - approaches the higher Centre, Shamballa (or Shambhala); then the Hierarchy evokes the energies, the Beings and the spiritual inflow which hierarchical service in the immediate future requires. It is also - in a unique sense - the technique whereby the Masters Themselves prepare for the sixth initiation, thus conditioning the Path of Life upon which They will eventually find Themselves and pass thence to higher cosmic undertakings.
A study of the first (Will or Power) and second (Love-Wisdom) rays will make it clear why in humanity (and in the solar system also) these two major rays are always so closely associated, and why all esoteric schools throughout the world are predominantly expressions of these two rays. A study of the activities and the cooperative endeavours of the Chohan Morya and the Chohan Koot Hoomi may also serve to make this clearer. Their work is indispensable to each other, just as life and consciousness are mutually indispensable, and without them form is rendered valueless.
It is very essential that the emphasis is laid on the fact that the basic school of occultism is that one, which has its root in the sacred centre of the planet, Shamballa. At that place is found the central office for the educational disciplinary training work of the Hierarchy. There will be found the Chohan, Who is directly responsible for the various endeavours, and to Whom the Masters Who take pupils, and the Heads of the various occult schools, are directly responsible.
No meditation that is truly and occultly suitable can be assigned by an inner teacher, who has not the capacity of causal consciousness and contact. When the teacher knows the note, the rate of vibration and the colour, then he can wisely assign, but not before. The wise teacher at this time considers the situation and weighs the effect of the incoming seventh ray on the spirits of incarnation. Here, therefore, you have a third ray and its bearing to be considered in the assigning of meditation. Fortunately the Hall of Wisdom equips its graduates for this task. The Hall of Wisdom embodies the teaching which the two coming races will develop and unfold, and thus trains the disciple and the initiate. True occult meditation is as yet little understood. Those disciples, who stand ready when opportunity is offered, ought to continue steadfastly with their work even when apparently there is no inner contact. These disciples offer no strain to the inner teacher (the soul) and make the most progress.
The Universalia e-reader publications on this website are not prescriptive, but are suggestive and they are sometimes technical and then not as easy to read due to the style of writing and the numerous correlations suggested via parentheses. It is intended to ponder on, to stimulate constructive thinking and foster spiritual growth. Each thought may be accepted, deferred, or rejected, in whole or in part, according to the framework, perspective, values, and consciousness of the reader. Self-realization and the following of the Path of Liberation occurs not through any rational or intellectual process, but rather through the meditative quality of higher consciousness.
The texts are assimilated, synthesized and compiled according to the flow of consciousness by the school-group. It is not intended for the casual reader, but for the more serious student who is willing to invest the time and attention to understand both the context and meditative impressions. Some of the publications are incidentally intended to discourage casual reading and to encourage a more deliberate-but-non-linear approach that allows and stimulates a more spiritual reading. It is what we 'understand', at the moment we read the material. The challenge is for the esotericist to read the material meditatively and intuitively rather than intellectually. In the final analysis, it is up to the reader to discern the truth, according to his or her own consciousness.
We would challenge all esotericists and advanced disciples to attempt the simple and practical approach which we will here outline on this website. We would ask them to live redemptive lives, to unfold their innate mental sensitivity, and to work continuously with the meaning which is to be found behind all individual, communal, national and world affairs. If this is done, then the light will suddenly and increasingly shine upon your ways. You can become light-bearers, knowing then that "in that light you will see Light" - and so will your fellowmen.
