Principle of Freedom ~ August 15

This Sirian influence was not recognised, and little of it was definitely focussed
in the Hierarchy, until Christ came and revealed the love of God to humanity.
He is the expression, par excellence, of a Sirian initiation, and it is to that
high place He will eventually go ~ no matter what duties or hierarchical
obligations may take Him elsewhere between that time and now.

- Alice A. Bailey, The Rays and The Initiations

Principle of Freedom

In our exploration of SouledOut's annual seed focus ~ Planetary Liberation Inaugurates Cosmic Freedom ~ the Principle of Freedom is implicit in this very concept.

Sirius, associated with freedom and liberation, is the closest major star to our own solar system. Sirius is also closely connected to Leo, and with the potent full moon during this cycle ~ this past Sunday August 10 ~ the Sirius energies presently are of significant influence.

The Principle of Freedom and the Principle of Liberation are forged on planet Earth by energies emanating from the great star Sirius. Because it embodies freedom and liberation, Sirius assists us in invoking freedom on our planet and imbuing more of this wonderous star’s quality into life here.

Calling on the available Will during this Leo cycle, there is opportunity to overcome all that dilutes our shared experience of the One Life.

The Principle of Freedom is representative of the consciousness on Sirius. This Divine principle governs the expanding initiations we as humans undertake and attain in our evolution to membership in the Spiritual Kingdom.

Freedom & the Initiations

In our evolution humanity embraces ever more fully the concept and the quality of freedom, as we become increasingly soul-infused and eventually liberated from the restrictions of physical plane existence.

[There is a] significant connection between our unimportant little planet and that vast expression of divinity, the Life which is manifesting through Sirius; it is an expression which is organised and vital beyond anything man can vision and which is free to a completely unlimited extent, again beyond the power of man to comprehend. The principle of freedom is a leavening energy which can permeate substance in a unique manner; this divine principle represents an aspect of the influence which Sirius exerts on our solar system and particularly on our planet. This principle of freedom is one of the attributes of Deity (like will, love and mind) of which humanity knows as yet little. The freedom for which men fight is one of the lowest aspects of this cosmic freedom, which is related to certain great evolutionary developments that enable the life or spirit aspect to free itself from the impact, the contact and the influence of substance.

It is the principle of freedom which enables Sanat Kumara to dwell on the Earth and yet stand free from all contacts, except with Those Who have trodden the Path of Liberation and now stand free upon the cosmic physical plane; it is that which enables the initiate to achieve a state of "isolated unity"; it is that which lies behind the Spirit of Death and forms the motivating power of that great releasing Agency; it is that which provides a "pathway of power" between our Hierarchy and the distant sun, Sirius, and gives the incentive towards the "culture of freedom" or of liberation which motivates the work of the Masters of the Wisdom; it is that which produced the ferment and the vortex of conflict in far distant ages and which has been recognised in the present through the results of the Law of Evolution in every kingdom in nature; this is that which "substands" or lies under or behind all progress. This mysteriously "exerted influence," this "pulling away" from form (as we might simply call it), emanates from Sirius and for it we have no name; it is the law of which the three cosmic laws—the Laws of Synthesis, of Attraction and of Economy—are only aspects. None of these three subsidiary laws imposes any rule or limitation upon the Lord of the World. The Law of Freedom, however, does impose certain restrictions, if one can use such a paradoxical phrase. It is responsible for His being known as the "Great Sacrifice," for (under the control of this law) He created our planetary life and all that is within and upon it, in order to learn to wield this law with full understanding, in full consciousness, and yet at the same time to bring release to the myriad forms of His creation.

The Law of Economy affects humanity as a whole today throughout every phase of its life; the Law of Attraction is beginning to gain some control, particularly in the work which the Hierarchy undertakes to do; and many initiates and senior disciples are becoming aware of the significance of the Law of Synthesis and are reacting to its impact. Later on, when moving to one of the seven Paths, the Master will work with the Law of Freedom. This is not, as you may well surmise, its true name, for in the last analysis, freedom and liberation are effects of its activity. This unique and mysterious law governs the Life and the Lives upon Sirius, and it is to that unknown "sphere of functioning and intelligent activity" what the Law of Economy is to our planet—the lowest of the laws controlling existence in planetary form.

This Law of Economy includes ... many lesser or subsidiary laws; it might therefore be stated that this Law of Freedom also does the same. Until more divine attributes are realised as existing and recognised as aspects, it is not possible for the name of the law which embodies the Law of Freedom to be given, for there is no word in our language adequately available. The above information will, however, link Sirius and our little planet, the Earth, in your minds.

- Alice Bailey, The Rays and the Initiations, p. 416-418

Besides the direct association of Sirius and Leo, also to note, “Scorpio is under the influence or inflowing energy of Sirius. This is the great star of initiation because our Hierarchy ... is under the supervision or spiritual magnetic control of the Hierarchy of Sirius.”  (1)
