The Three Ideas Governing the New Age of Aquarius: 
Liberty, Equality and Fraternity


It is a truism to remark that the history of the world is based on the emergence of ideas, their acceptance, their transformation into ideals, and their eventual superseding by the next imposition of ideas.…Upon the use made of these ideas (which are in the nature of divine emanations, embodying the divine plan for planetary progress) will depend the rapidity of humanity's progress or its retardation for lack of understanding.1


Because Planet Earth is not yet a sacred planet, the material substance of the three lowest planes of manifestation dominate.  They imprison and eclipse the spiritual life.  Inertia, a blind and incessant instinct to maintain the status quo and a powerful personal will that covets supremacy for the small ego are all characteristics of these lower planes of material substance, which oppose and find antagonistic the life of the opposite pole—the higher planes of pure spiritual energy ever attempting synthesis and inclusion.  Until a certain degree of Self-consciousness is achieved, spiritual energy is ignored, dismissed or it is abhorrent to those who live their lives exclusively on the lower planes of evolution.

It is for this reason, over time and across all cultures that so many of our Spiritual Teachers have met with such powerful resistance leading to abuse, mistreatment, revulsion and vilification, resulting often in a tragic end for these sacrificing Great Ones.  Their heightened spiritual vibrations, posing a threat to the existing status quo were violently opposed, resulting in upheaval, chaos and conflict in the surrounding environment.

It is for this reason that the Christ-Maitreya cannot once again walk among us until the planetary physical plane vibrations have been purified and there is a greater appreciation and demonstration of the energies of Light and Love—in the form of the New Age ideas of liberty, equality and fraternity.

Yet, planet Earth IS the cosmic turning point, destined to become a sacred planet—not only at the abstract levels of consciousness such as is the case today—but on all levels of expression.  The question is just one of time.  How quickly or slowly can humanity forswear its foolish ways and succeed in throwing the full weight of its conscious, heartfelt dedication and striving into cooperating with the Plan of Love and Light and the Beings of Consciousness who ever seek the Common Good?

The Age of Aquarius is the Age of Brotherhood.  It is the Age of the mind’s true liberation and it is the age when all will be welcome to the table of plenty.  Sharing in all ways—physical and spiritual, are the order of the day.  Once recognized and attained, the higher spiritual energies will result in an unimpeded divine circulatory flow that will result in the expression of love as pure reason, insuring a sharing in all ways physical and spiritual.

Referring to the second World War, the Tibetan Master Djwhal Khul tells us that “It had been the hope of the Christ and the longing of all the Masters that men would see clearly and make free and right choice, so that—without physical plane warfare—they would bring about the needed changes and the ending of wrong conditions.   But the conflict descended onto the physical plane and the sword of material war (symbolically speaking) was taken up by humanity. 

“The Hierarchy [of Love-Wisdom] did what it could to change the trend of human living and thinking, awakening the consciences of the intelligent, stimulating the activity of the humanitarians and impressing the minds of Their disciples in order to arouse goodwill, a driving desire for right human relations and peaceful conditions.  But the movement was not strong enough; the sword appeared on earth and mankind was plunged into war.2

The balance of the world situation once again lies in the hands of the New Group of World Servers.  It lies in the hands of those spiritual workers who, inspired by a love for humanity and having done the necessary transformational work within themselves, can cooperatively wield and direct the energy of the will-to-good.  Nothing else can redeem the forces that are antagonistic to the inpouring Spiritual energies.  Nothing else can end the suffering on planet earth.  Nothing else can prepare the way so that the Masters of the Wisdom can once again—on a higher turn of the spiral, openly walk among humanity (as They did in Atlantis), radiating the Good the True and the Beautiful into the everyday life.  Nothing else can prepare the path for the reappearance of the Christ—the Planetary Teacher of this Aquarian Age.

The Hierarchy of Love-Wisdom asks for our aid and support in the arena of world affairs. They ask for our cooperation “in our mutual responsibility—the helping of humanity.”3
