Aries 2018 New Moon

STRENGTHENING THE HANDS OF THE NEW GROUP OF WORLD SERVERS

Meditation is the primary form of service for those following a spiritual path. It is a means of cooperation and alignment with hierarchical intent. The new moon period follows upon the cycle of outbreathing in the rhythmic cycles of the breath; it is a time of pause wherein together we can establish a soul-mind-brain alignment. During this period we work in thought to concretize the ideas and impressions received at the time of the full moon period and undertake the sometimes difficult process of translating them into practical plans that can be of service in the world. The effect of this meditative effort is to enhance the many ways in which the “power of the one Life” and the “love of the one soul” are working out through all true servers everywhere.

2018 Aries New Moon Meeting: UN Security Council

New Moon Meditation Outline

Q: What are the underlying causes obstructing the path towards human unity and the consequent need for reform within the Security Council?

A:  National self-interests obstruct the international common good.

 

Q: How can esoteric servers contribute to the resolution of these causes?

A: Promote the development of the intuitive sense in humanity. The new yoga,  Agni Yoga, is a REVELATORY practice dispelling ILLUSION. Newer TRUTHS about hierarchical democracy and spiritual governance need to be revealed by the NGWS.

Re: Synthesis, Agni Yoga and the Christ

Dear Duane:

Thank you for your thoughtful response. VBA’s intention was to share with spiritual aspirants, particularly those in preparation for the second and third initiations, an introduction to Agni Yoga, as he received it in his (Second Ray) Ashram.

The constant contemplation of life events, as archetypal symbols of an inner (usually hidden) reality, is key to this approach. In my presentation of the book for the general public

http://www.ngsm.org/2025/en/new-book-on-the-intuition-and-yoga/

I emphasize this approach. I believe that the current emphasis on “mindfulness” is linked to the revelation of this new Yoga of Synthesis.

The advanced stage in the practice of Agni Yoga, which you very well related to the contemplation of dynamic geometrical constructs,

and which I also relate to DK’s teachings on the Technique of the Presence to dispel illusion,

http://www.agni-yoga.org/IHF-TP.htm

I’ve included as appendices to VBA’s introductory guide.

Lastly, I’ve found it useful to visualize the Path of Initiation in terms of overlapping stages rather than rigidly demarcated milestones. As in college studies, one may master advanced graduate courses on specific subjects of our interest while still completing our undergraduate degree.  At the “terminal” degree level (third initiation for some, higher initiations for others), it will all add up.

Thank you so much for your work on the mystery of electricity and the study of dynamic geometrical symbolism, as they pave the ways into Shamballa and the revelation of the Buddhic plane.

JB

Synthesis, Agni Yoga and the Christ

Synthesis, Agni Yoga and the Christ

By Duane Carpenter

Dear Jose,

Thank you for sending me information on this new book by Vicente Beltran Anglada now published in English for the first time. There is a small but growing group of initiates and disciples at this time historically who are attempting to understand what true Agni Yoga may actually be and how it relates to the externalization of the Hierarchy, the Reappearance of the Christ and what these new third phase teachings may actually look like. It has become apparent to me that some of these advanced teachings are filtering through all areas of the occult sciences and not just esoteric astrology which we know is the most ancient of all the occult and esoteric sciences. To show the complexity of the subject DK has also stated.

“It is these Mysteries which Christ will restore upon His reappearance, thus reviving the churches in a new form, and restoring the hidden Mystery which they long have lost through their materialism. Masonry has also lost the true livingness it once possessed but, in its forms and rituals, the truth is preserved and can be recovered. This Christ will do. He will also revive these Mysteries in other ways; not all will seek the church or Masonry for the revitalizing of their spiritual life. The true Mysteries will also reveal themselves through science and the incentive to search for them there will be given by the Christ. The Mysteries contain, within their formulas and teachings, the key to the science which will unlock the mystery of electricity—the greatest spiritual science and area of divine knowledge in the world, the fringes of which have only just been touched. Only when the Hierarchy is present visibly on Earth and the Mysteries of which the disciples of the Christ are the Custodians are given openly to the world, will the true secret and nature of electrical phenomena be revealed.” (123-4 ROC)

This science of electricity DK is referring to is slowing being revealed through conventional science as well as ancient yogic traditions and its current research and exploration in so many new and creative ways that it may be incomprehensible to esoteric students of the past who are not informed or abreast of these modern discoveries. It is not just astronomy and astrophysics but involves all the sciences, particularly those that are exploring electricity, energy, force, light and gravity in new and creative ways.

Since initiation is also a deeply subjective experience requiring not just new information on any given subject but requires changes in the inner man and his different spiritual bodies only those who have had advanced meditative training and raised the Kundalini force to the higher head centers will see all of these obtuse questions in a new light and be able to answer these deep and mysterious questions because they are now directly interfacing with those hidden forces in their higher form. Kundalini we know has may levels and facets and only a true Agni Yogi can claim to have activated those three higher head centers we call the Crown, Ajna and the 12 petaled heart center within the head and not simply the centers found along the spine and lower torso. Only those who express all three qualities of the upper triad Atma, Buddhi and Manas simultaneously can claim to be an advanced Agni Yogi. We also understand that depending on a number of different factors which of these three centers will be the most dominate or the order in which they are first activated.

Paradoxically initiates of this standing that we have just outlined do not make claims but may prefer to remain anonymous and work from behind the scenes since the danger to “premature disclosure” might put them or the groups they work with in a vulnerable and compromised position because of world conditions.

Symbols

Since symbols according to DK, HPB and Master M that have been shared in the Agni Yoga series of books are the language of initiates and how they communicate on high telepathic and intuitive levels it is important we follow their instructions and meditate on what they have given. Not just individually but in groups. I have rendered and designed many of these key symbols in my different e-books that can be found on the right hand bottom column when my http://www.light-weaver.com/ site first opens.
I am presently drafting up a commentary that will reveal some of the most important images and symbols given by Master M through the Agni yoga series. A few visual examples can be found attached to this letter and may be freely used or shared.

The Agni Yoga series of books and teachings gives us some insight into a new type of abstract or “spacial thought” and indicates it can more easily be understood by the recognition of an “ascending spiral or dual dodecahedron” These images when visualized and meditated upon put the student in a better position to understand the idea of “Fiery Space” or the supreme principal of the “Intuition” “Shamballa” and the “Divine Will”. I understand that there are many approaches to spiritual revelation and inner recognition and that the idea of geometry is mainly a second ray approach to truth but it is one that can reveal much about all of the 7 divine rays and their hidden constitution.

Let us give a practical example and quote from Agni Yoga, 361.

“There are two kinds of logic: the logic of external reasoning, which one attempts to learn from textbooks, and that of mental synthesis, by which one collects and links the sparks of spatial thought. These sparks may seem to be a happy accident, even though this “accident” may have been ripening in space for an entire century…”

“As rings of the spiral show to the observer the outer turns and conceal the inner turns, so mental logic proceeds according to the limits of the outer turns while the inner turns are still merged in the streams of collective thought in space. Hence, We take such care about the broadening of the consciousness, in order that union with spatial thought may be approached.
This must be accepted as simply as is the vital importance of oxygen. Equally simple should be the idea of the spiral nature of all that exists, and of creative explosions. Thus the breath of the Cosmos will be realized as an ascending spiral…”

“We all rejoice if you are applying the rhythms indicated to you. Of course the rhythms vary with each individual, and the current condition of one’s organism determines the results. One should accept the transmissions from space into the open Chalice. This is the guarantee of synthesis. Likewise, one must follow one’s inner rhythm, because the developed consciousness cannot be without rhythm.
The combination of two dodecahedrons is useful for promoting the rhythm of fire. When enough energy has been accumulated, I shall demonstrate it, because this fleeting rhythm is necessary for the approach to Agni Yoga.”

Thank you dear Jose for your persistence determination, love and devotion to reveal and share your many important insights and research. I have ordered Vicente’s book and look forward to reading it. No one in the different esoteric fields or groups is the exclusive custodians of this important information we seek. Working together we can help build a better understanding of what Agni Yoga may look like hence in our small but important way help vacillated the Externalization program and the Reappearance of the Christ.

New Book on the Intuition and Yoga

August 2017

The intuitive sense is a crucial element in the skill set of visionary leaders. A natural talent for some, the intuitive sense can be developed through the practice of the fiery Yoga of Synthesis, also known as Agni Yoga.

Visionaries can glimpse the future because they can discard old models and adapt their vision according to new paradigms. The Promethean Fire of the Mind can melt old structures of thought in order to imagine more organically synthetic paradigms of reality. This synthesis is not the analytical outcome of the logical mind but the product of the trans-rational mind contemplating life as a sequence of symbols and their metamorphoses.

The practice of mindfulness is based on the constant presence of mind traceable to the tenets of Agni Yoga. These are: profound attentiveness, serene expectancy and perfect adaptability. When life is approached as a constant study and contemplation of archetypal symbols, whose meanings are to be revealed in all of life events and circumstances, the intuitive sense is unleashed and developed, not as an irrational regression to a naive worldview, but as a trans-rational “re-enchantment” of life itself, so much needed in our current post-modernly deconstructed world.

How to develop the intuition, from unreliable “gut feelings” and feeble hunches, to a stable and full expression of our innate capacity to speak the “language of the heart,” the grammar of symbols, is the subject of an introductory guide to Agni Yoga originally written by Vicente Beltrán-Anglada (1915-1988).

I hope that this first English translation, edited and enhanced with illustrated appendices, may be as useful to others as it has been for me to complete and publish.

“It sounds like a redundancy to speak of union through synthesis, but it is not so. It is union through identification with the whole — not union through realization or through vision. Mark well this distinction, for it holds the secret of the next step for the personalities of the race. The Bhagavad Gita gives us primarily the key to the yoga of devotion. Patanjali teaches us the yoga of the mind. In the Gospel story we have the portrayal of realization, but the key or the secret of identification is still withheld. It lies in the custody of a few in this integrating group of mystics and knowers and will be brought out into manifestation in the furnace of their own experience and thus given to the world. But the time is not yet. The group must grow in strength and knowledge and in intuitive perception.” – ATreatise on White Magic by Alice A. Bailey (p. 429)

This Full Moon period in the sign of Leo may be a good time to ponder on “the key or secret of IDENTIFICATION.” Leo’s keynote, I Am THAT I Am, may prove useful in approaching the new Yoga of SYNTHESIS, Agni Yoga. The Tibetan Master has associated the revelatory Practice of the PRESENCE, or Agni Yoga, with the technique to dispel illusion by the development of the intuitive sense.

“In the (Roerich) book Agni Yoga, some of the teaching to be given has filtered through but only from the angle of the will aspect. No book has as yet made its appearance which gives in any form whatsoever the Yoga of Synthesis.” (ibid)

We invite the English-speaking esoteric community to read and study this new book introducing the Fiery Yoga of Synthesis from a Second Ray perspective. Beltrán-Anglada was an accepted disciple in training for the third initiation of Transfiguration. His Master asked him to draft and publish an introductory guide on Agni Yoga from the teachings received in the Ashram. The first Spanish edition of this book was published in 1981.

Vicente Beltrán-Anglada’s work represents the first time that the spiritual Hierarchy has authorized the original use of the Spanish language to publish its teachings. The writings of H. P. Blavatsky and A. A. Bailey were originally published in English. H. Roerich’s work was originally published in the Russian language. Beltrán-Anglada was preceded by the Spaniard Francisco Brualla, who moved to Argentina to conduct his Hierarchical service. However, Brualla did not leave any public and personal testimony of his accepted discipleship experience. That responsibility corresponded to, and was accomplished by, Vicente Beltrán-Anglada.

As a witness of the Light and in the service of the Plan,

PS: The Fifth Addendum

Roerich’s Agni Yoga (Revised)

The purpose of this fifth addendum to the recently published translation of Vicente Beltrán Anglada’s Introduction to Agni Yoga is twofold. First, to provide a curated compilation of essential elements in Helena Roerich’s Agni Yoga. Second, to assist the reader in drawing contrasts and parallels between the VBA (2nd Ray) and the HR (1st Ray) approaches to the fiery Yoga of Synthesis. Appendix B (Agni Yoga and the Practice of the Presence) already provides the reader with a similar reference in regard to Alice A. Bailey’s approach to Agni Yoga.
