Aquarian Age Community
Working in His role as Messenger, on behalf of the Spiritual Hierarchy, the Tibetan Master has given us the date of 2025 (a short 21 years away) as a pivotal date in terms of the future of humanity and the planet. At this time "the date in all probability will be set for the first stage of the externalization of the Hierarchy" (The Externalisation of the Hierarchy, p. 530) and the consequent reappearance of the World Spiritual Teacher, known to us by such titles as the Christ, Maitreya, the True Aquarian, the Thinker and the "magnetic point of love for the entire planet."
Also, this date is given as the time by which "three recognitions must be evidenced by humanity and affect human thinking and action if the total destruction of mankind is to be averted." (Discipleship In the New Age, Vol. II, p. 164—underline added) Needed is a wide recognition of the world of the Soul, a recognition of the Masters of the Wisdom and the Spiritual Beings who lead humanity onward towards its destined goal and "a steadily increased recognition of the Plan on the part of the masses." (Ibid.)
Inherent in these three necessary recognitions is the spread of Christ (Soul) consciousness and the needed preparation for the reappearance of the World Spiritual Teacher. Over the period of many years, in response to the Tibetan Master's request, every Thursday we re-consecrate our lives and renew our pledge to count all things but loss save those that will prepare the hearts and minds of humanity for that event and create the path of light by which our beloved World Spiritual Teacher—the highest embodiment of Love-Wisdom possible on planet Earth—may once again openly walk amongst His disciples and reach out to humanity in a public way.
As we know, He will complete in the sign of Aquarius, the work he began in the sign of Pisces. The world then was not ready to fully benefit from His Wisdom nor understand the experience possible on planet Earth. In keeping with His work in Aquarius, His keynote is uniquely, "Water of Life Am I Poured Forth for Thirsty Men."
It is this very same keynote that each of us can aspire to embody as we seek to fit ourselves to intentionally and constantly live—in consciousness—within His aura, drawing upon His strength and love, as we seek to share it with a "thirsty" world, heeding once again the call of the Tibetan Master who enjoins us to "purify and beautify our modern world to such an extent that the Christ can appear among men." (Discipleship In the New Age, Vol. II, p. 226
In both The Externalisation of the Hierarchy (pp.489-490) and in the second volume of Discipleship In the New Age (pp.149-150) the Tibetan links the reappearance of the Christ with the San Francisco Conference that created the United Nations. In his words, "The Hierarchy will eventually, under its Head, the Christ, function openly and visibly on Earth. This will happen when the purpose of the divine Will, and the plan which will implement it, are better understood and the period of adjustment, of world enlightenment and of reconstruction has made real headway. This period begins at the San Francisco Conference (hence its major importance)."
This San Francisco conference inaugurated the "Cycle of Conferences and Councils," with the purpose of bringing about spiritual freedom as embodied in the Four Freedoms and right human relations—among people and nations. If the work attempted in these international conferences and councils is to be effective, they need the support of the New Group of World Servers and the men and women of goodwill who "must stand as a great 'army of implacable spiritual will' behind the participants in these conferences and councils, enabling them to think with clarity about the issues involved and thus (through this clear thinking) affect telepathically the minds of men." (The Externalisation of the Hierarchy, p. 455) As the Tibetan tells us, "this involves the use of a power seldom employed as yet on the side of righteous endeavour, though already widely used by the materialistic leaders of the forces of evil." (Ibid.)
Witnessing current events, we can better understand the warning that the war, which might follow the (Second) World War was going to be waged in the field of the world religions. And that such a war would be fought largely with mental weapons in the world of thought, involving the emotional realm from the standpoint of idealistic fanaticism. Is that not what is currently being played out on the world stage? Is there not a battle being waged for the hearts and minds of the people of the world? And, are not all means possible being used in this battle? Is it not as the Tibetan indicated, a battle between the Forces of Light and the Forces of Darkness? As we know, fanaticism of any kind creates tunnel vision and does not allow entrance to the light of clear thinking, preventing therefore the anticipated era that would bring in knowledge of the Soul.
The subtle energies of the inner worlds take much time in producing their effects upon the objective, tangible plane of daily living, however, the process can be enhanced through the power inherent in the light of many minds meditating in unison. We therefore invite those of you who are not yet using the esoteric meditation outline, "The Spiritual Work of the United Nations and the Liberation of Humanity" to request it.* For those already using the meditation, we encourage the continued, disciplined, focused creation of lighted thought forms that will electrify, strengthen and deepen the planetary Antahkarana. As earlier indicated, neither the Externalization, the Reappearance nor the restoration of the Mysteries can take place unless there is a "regularizing" of world affairs, leading to some measure of tranquility and stability in the world.
At this time, we also want to extend to you a personal invitation to join us in two special seminars related to this work and further described in the enclosed flyer. The first will take place on Saturday, February 7, 2004 and the second will take place at the United Nations on Wednesday, June 2nd. We hope you will plan to join us so that together we can seek to cooperate with Divine Purpose*.
We are reminded by Master M that diverting a hostile will toward "the good" is difficult indeed. In his words, "the difficulties of the task are akin to those of polishing a diamond." Leaves of Morya's Garden, Book I, The Call, 1924 (199) However, we are assured that if we "apply all ...[our] efforts, by ...[our] own hands will the power of the future be built" because, as he asserts, " I will help, I will help, but add your own efforts." [Ibid. (230)]
In this season that we celebrate His birth, may we remember the Christ's "new command" as given in Chapter 13 of John: "A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this all men will know that you are my disciples." (John 13: 34-35)
We deeply appreciate and thank each of you who have sent your heartfelt greetings in beautiful holiday cards and we are deeply grateful for your financial contributions that allow for the continuation of this work. We extend to you our heartfelt good wishes for a blessed, sacred Christmas and an inspired and joyous New Year and we look forward to seeing you at the two indicated seminars, if not at the monthly meditation meetings to strengthen the work of the United Nations.
In the light and love of the dawning Age of Aquarius,
Ida Urso, President
