This process is beginning to demonstrate in the steadily expanding group, national and racial consciousness which humanity is today demonstrating—a consciousness which shows as a spiritual inclusiveness or as an abnormal and wicked attempt (from the standpoint of the soul) to fuse and blend all nations into a world order, based on material issues and dominated by a material vision. There was nothing spiritual in the vision of the leaders of the powers which were called the Axis powers. But the spiritual intent of mankind is slowly growing and the great Law of Contrasts will eventually bring illumination.The Lord of the World, the “Ancient of Days,” is releasing new energies into humanity, transmuted in the present furnace of pain and fiery agony.

It is necessary also for man to relate his soul to his personality, viewing both as aspects and integral parts of the human family. This will be increasingly the case. This process is beginning to demonstrate in the steadily expanding group, national and racial consciousness which humanity is today demonstrating — a consciousness which shows as a spiritual inclusiveness or as an abnormal and wicked attempt (from the standpoint of the soul) to fuse and blend all nations into a world order, based on material issues and dominated by a material vision. There was nothing spiritual in the vision of the leaders of the powers which were called the Axis powers, and the vision of the masses of people has not proved adequate to arrest, as yet, the materialising of this vision. But the spiritual intent of mankind is slowly growing and the great Law of Contrasts will eventually bring illumination.

A quote on “contrast“:

“The basic contrast between freedom of speech, thought and action which distinguishes the democracies, and the cruel suppression of all liberty of thought and personal activity which controls the masses in Germany today, is too well known to require emphasising by me. But I bring these contrasts to your attention, asking you to recognise your responsibility to stand behind those who fight for liberty and to end the activity of those who are the enemies of all human freedom.” -The Externalisation Of The Hierarchy

One thought on “Law of Contrasts

  1. AAB lived through World War 2 when there were dark periods where the certainty of victory over the Axis powers was by no mans certain. In the quote about “The basic contrast between freedom of speech, thought and action which distinguishes the democracies, and the cruel suppression of all liberty of thought and personal activity [by the Axis powers]” we indeed have a great contrast. Unfortunately many in America today, like the Antifa folk and those pushing for “politically correct speech” on campuses, do support “suppression of liberty of thought” very much like the Nazis in the 1930s. They also use similar tactics, that is, violence to suppress speech that they think is “hateful” while unable to see the hate in their own speech.
