Humanity: The Divine Messenger to the World of Form
This coming process of planetary service through the third divine centre [Humanity] is only truly effective when Aquarius rules and when our sun is passing through that sign of the zodiac. Hence the immense importance of the next 2000 years. Therefore, only when a man is a world server and becoming group conscious can this desired objective of manifestation begin to demonstrate. It is beginning to happen today for the first time in planetary history. It is one of the first fruits of initiation and only in the next root race to our present Aryan race will we begin really to understand the significance of the process and the true nature of the energies to be released through the medium of humanity upon the planet.1

Through the past Lemurian and Atlantean civilizations and their eventual catastrophic destruction, our planetary Logos has gradually prepared the field for the future destiny of humanity, which, we are told, is currently in the fifth of the seven major phases of its intended unfoldment. Over the millennia, as it demonstrated readiness, humanity has been initiated into succeeding phases of divine consciousness through applied stimulation. Each phase has brought the original divine purpose of our planetary logos for Planet Earth closer into manifestation.

Thus, the evolution of Life proceeds, moving ever forward reasonably, regularly, and in good order. In the esoteric teachings we learn that humanity is the keynote of the Lord of the World. Humanity is the basis, the goal and the essential inner structure of all being. Humanity itself is the key to all evolutionary processes and to all correct understanding of the divine Plan, and in time, will express the divine Purpose of Sanat Kumara, referred to in the esoteric teachings by many names such as "the Ancient of Days" and "the Lord of the world."2

All the planetary centres are constituted of lives progressing towards the human stage (the mineral, the plant and the animal) and those who have left that stage far behind (the Hierarchy of the Masters of Love-Wisdom and Shamballa, the Beings of Will and Purpose) are yet endowed with all the faculties and all the knowledge wrought out into human expression in earlier planetary schemes or through our own planetary life.

Because They share a common humanity, the great and omnipotent Lives in Shamballa can impress the omniscient Lives and lesser lives in the Hierarchy of Love-Wisdom. Because of shared experience and understanding, the Hierarchical Masters and Initiates can consequently impress humanity. And, in turn, because of shared instinctual tendencies and the potential assets in the three subhuman groups, humanity can and does impress these planetary centres.

It is for this reason that in the ancient archives humanity is referred to as "the Sons of Mind," "the Messengers of Deity" and "the initiates." Humanity's purpose is to bring "light and life to other divine manifestations, and of this," the Tibetan Master tells us, "all divine world Saviours are the eternal symbols" and forerunners. Thus, humanity is the focal point for planetary and cosmic energies and the divine distributor of these to "individual man" and to the lower three kingdoms in nature.3

Through six stages (instinct, intellect, intuition, illumination, inspiration, identification) is human consciousness unfolded; this, as a result of the influence of the energies emanating from the zodiacal signs flooding our planet and available to those who have prepared themselves to receive this influence. These energies are ever present, but responsiveness and sensitivity are always dependent on the nature of the unit responding. To say it otherwise, we are each of us as radio sets bathed in a sea of energy and we have the opportunity to strive to tune in to those subtler and more rarified energies and ideas that we refer to as Light, Love and the Will-to-Good. We thus become part of the divine circulatory flow, playing our part in the grand scheme of Life as we, with stern resolve, and with earnest aspiration, look above and help below, becoming the Divine Messengers to the world of form, offering beneficent compassion and liberation to those whom we can help
