Sensitivity to Telepathic Impression
and the Age of Aquarius

The trend of the evolutionary process is to make each unit, microcosm and macrocosm, an intelligent co-operator, responsive to forces impinging upon it externally, and aware of its own internal economy and of the latent forces and energies which it has to contribute to the good of the whole.1

The Ageless Wisdom teaches that the etheric or energy body of every human being is an integral part of the etheric body of the planet itself and consequently of the solar system. Through this medium, we are all related to each other and to every other expression of Life, whether minute or great.

Additionally, the Ageless Wisdom teaches that our Solar System is made up of seven levels of consciousness with each level being subdivided into seven sub-levels. The human being is normally conscious on the lowest three subplanes of the Seventh Cosmic Physical Plane.

Every thought, every feeling and every behavior leaves its imprint on these levels of consciousness. What we are aware of depends on our focus of attention. The process works in a similar way as does a radio receiver or TV antennae. The concept of "the raincloud of knowable things" or "the overshadowing cloud of spiritual knowledge" is older than the sage, Patanjali who first put this concept in writing many thousands of years ago. This phenomena explains, for example, why certain ideas often appear at the same time in the minds of people who are geographically distant.

Because the human being is the microcosm made in the image of the macrocosm, we too have seven primary centers of energy, which inform our life. If certain of these energy centers are dormant or inactive, we are oblivious to certain realms of consciousness. We cannot tune into a particular frequency.

Alternatively, if our attention is focused in a particular center of consciousness; for example, if we are excessively polarized in the solar plexus center, then we are emotionally susceptible. We are thus swayed and influenced by the particular dominant emotion coloring or qualifiying the planetary emotional body at any particular point in time.

It is for this reason that such emotions as fear, anxiety or worry can with lightening speed move through a group or through a crowd and readily influence world public opinion as we have recently seen with regard to terrorism, war and the stock market. These emotions are literally as infectious as a medical epidemic.

It is via this same process that humanity is learning how to harness the power of thought and beginning to respond to the "overshadowing cloud of spiritual knowledge," as reflected in the growing interest in spirituality-from people all over the world and in all disciplines.

The germ or embryonic capacity for all types of planetary contact is inherent in every human being and it is only a matter of time before it is realized. In the book, Esoteric Psychology (Vol.II), the Tibetan Master indicates that "the story of man, the aspirant, is the story of his response to, or repulse of, applied energies" (p.54).

As the Bodhisattva Pledge2 and the concept of the Salvaging Christ as the Good Shepherd who leaves no sheep untended indicate, the Soul, the omniscient spark of consciousness animating each human being, works not towards the consummation of its own salvation, but "it works towards the regeneration of matter" and the evolution of consciousness.

As the spiritual teachers of humanity have long taught, the spiritual goal is not primarily to attain a certain spiritual stature and to demonstrate unique spiritual qualities. Rather, "this desired stature and these spiritual qualities are manifested when the vehicles have been 'occultly saved', and matter has thus been transformed, transmuted and symbolically 'raised up into heaven'. When the vehicles vibrate in unison with the soul then is the liberation of the Soul achieved."3

Developing sensitivity to telepathic impression is one of the most important techniques of this evolving Age of Aquarius. As each of us via meditation, service and inspirational reading strive to fit ourselves to respond to the energies radiating from the higher realms of consciousness, we create a path of light-a channel (the Antahkarana) through which the higher impressions may reach us. This individual channel or cable eventually becomes the planetary channel. As the cable grows and becomes strong and magnetic, so it can attract and withstand the increasing voltage of the higher energies, leading eventually to planetary redemption and the longed for transformation.
