Humanity and the Sacred Planetary Form

All that concerns humanity at this time is the necessity for a revelation and a gradual apprehension of the Plan which will enable man to

a. Work consciously and intelligently,
b. Realise the relation of form and quality to life,
c. Produce that inner transmutation which will bring into manifestation the fifth kingdom in nature, the Kingdom of Souls.

All this has to be accomplished in the realm of conscious awareness or response, through the medium of steadily improving vehicles or response mechanisms, and with the aid of spiritual understanding and interpretation.

              - Alice A. Bailey, Esoteric Psychology II, p. 6-7

Humanity as the Link and Accomplice
in the Divine Creation of the Sacred Planetary Form

Why is Humanity so vital in the grand scheme of things and why do we need to help raise mass consciousness?

Some studies say there are approximately 100 trillion cells in the human body. One can only imagine how many atoms there are, or even smaller units of energy. We know that the Science of Acupuncture can heal the entire Body by stimulating or unblocking one tiny place in that body where the diseased condition originates, which then allows for higher energies to flow through and thus heal the whole.

Perhaps our Earth is that one point, or one of many points, within the whole of the solar system and beyond that needs the correct flow of the energy of the Soul to pour throughout the planet and all its Life forms, thus cleansing and healing not only Earth, but the WHOLE of which we are a part.

Our Planetary Logos holds a unique place in the cosmic scheme of things, for He it is Who provides the training ground for those lives who are out of harmony with the cosmic order. Those who are willful and deliberate, take an oppositional path; those who are laggards in any particular evolution, and those who through serious misinterpretation are responsible for major failures find their way to this planet. These make up our humanity. We are each and every one of us here to reconstruct our own inner natures into a harmonious relationship with and within the One Life. Even those who come from outside this system to serve within it at great sacrifice, do so out of karmic necessity a karmic relationship with our Logos.

In cooperation with Saturn and Sirius our Planetary Logos balances a certain aspect of cosmic karma.

Thus, we glimpse something of Planetary Purpose and our relationship to it. We also come to understand more clearly the meaning underlying the experiences of pain and loss that are so characteristic here, for all life on the planet is actually a disciplinary training.

              - Lucille Cedercrans, Creative Thinking, p. 493

Identification with the Whole of Life is the essential next step for human evolution.

One of the marks of readiness for initiation is the ability to see the expanding and inclusive Whole, and to note the law which is transcended when the part becomes the Whole.

This sentence, with its many implications, is more than a hint, though two deeply significant hints are contained therein. It is a statement of individual, group, planetary and cosmic import and is the one hint out of the many which I have given to you in my various books and in these more particularised instructions which has a definite application for every single and isolated initiation. It is capable of indicating to the initiate ~ no matter what initiation he may be taking (from the lowest to the highest) ~ his readiness to undergo the expansion of consciousness which each initiation involves, the nature of the expanding vision with which he will then be confronted, and the higher reflection of the Law or Laws which initiation enables the initiate to grasp and thereby relinquish the laws which have hitherto governed his conduct and which have conditioned his realised life experience. Those laws he perforce continues to obey, as a member of the human kingdom, but his consciousness is not conditioned by them but is rapidly becoming subservient to a higher and a much more deeply spiritual law. 

              - Alice A. Bailey, Discipleship in the New Age II, p. 418

We can understand why Humanity is vital for the full and complete redemption of matter, assuring that all will be liberated from oppression and slavery. In our ability as human beings to transform our own vehicles into adequate receptacles of the purity of the Kingdom of Souls, is the assurance of the eventual fruition of the Plan to transform the Earth into a sacred planet.

... when I say that part of the purpose is to liberate light and love into a wider universe and to free the solar system from the attacks of cosmic evil, I am stating a truth, but a truth which remains as yet meaningless to those who have not been put in touch with the completed purpose ....
              - Alice A. Bailey, The Rays and The Initiations, p. 727

No wonder Sanat Kumara has been called "The Great Sacrifice" (1) to take on the task of Redemption of the Planetary Lives in order to make possible a Great Solar Revelation, and to suit our Earth for its Cosmic Mission in the future, to be an outpost of the Consciousness of God in the Solar System, and among other goals:

To set up a magnetic centre in the universe, in which the human kingdom and the kingdom of souls will, united or at-oned, be the point of most intense power, and which will serve the developed Lives within the radius of the radiance of the One About Whom Naught May Be Said.
              - Alice A. Bailey, Esoteric Psychology II, p. 217

A point for contemplation in regards to Humanity's Building a Lighted House in Cancer ~

"From the Centre which we call the race of men" (2) ... The Human Soul being the recipient of the Triadal energies of Atma, Buddhi and Manas, thence from the Soul into the dense body of the Logos ~ lower mental, astral and etheric/physical ...

Just as the planet called the earth is regarded as the turning point or the battle-ground between Spirit and matter, and is therefore, from that very consideration, of great importance, so our solar system holds an analogous place in the cosmic scheme. The cosmic man, the solar Arjuna, is wrestling for His individualised perfected self-consciousness, and for freedom and liberation from the form, and from the not-self. So man on this planet battles for similar ideals on his tiny scale; so battle in heaven Michael and His Angels, or the divine Heavenly Men, Whose problem is the same on the higher scale.

Adding to this week's Spiritual Focus, from SouledOut ...
The Sun and Sirius Oppose Pluto and Vega

Over the Dog Days of summer, during daylight hours Sirius and the Sun together shine their energies upon us and the entire planetary life.

Slow-moving Pluto is presently retrograde and in orb (16° 14' Capricorn) to oppose the annual Sun~Sirius conjunction at just past 14° Cancer, on July 6. At the same time Pluto opposes Sirius and the Sun, it is also conjunct Vega, our once and future Pole star. Because Sirius and Vega are opposite each other, whenever Sirius is above our heads Vega is underneath our feet, and vice versa.

Note: During 2015 there were 3 exact Pluto~Sirius oppositions ~ Feb. 3, July 5, Dec. 9. The second of these pivotal opposition days was on the day after the 4th of July, so we may reprise certain characteristics of last year's cycle.

Transformative Vega is the brightest star in the constellation Lyra, which has evolved in western astronomy from signifying the Vulture to being recognized as the Harp. One of the 3 stars in the stellar Summer Triangle formation, in the night skies of summer Vega has dominion high overhead.

Each of the 3 Summer Triangle stars are in constellations representing birds ~ Altair in Aquila ~ the Eagle and Deneb in Cygnus ~ the Swan, so the transformation of Lyra from Vulture to Harp speaks to Vega's harmonizing influence.

Like Pluto, Vega also has a signature of Death of the form, for Lyra represents also the harp played by Orpheus in his pursuit of Eurydice to redeem her from the underworld.
