Alice A. Bailey On Planetary Evil

Alice A. Bailey (AAB) and Djwhal Khul (DK) writing on planetary evil imply that evil is a necessary part of Creation as Spirit is projected into matter. They also distinguish between planetary evil and cosmic evil.

Below are some quotes from the writings of AAB and DK on the subject of evil, particularly planetary evil.

First. It should be remembered that the whole subject of planetary evil (and students must distinguish carefully between planetary and cosmic evil) lies hid in the individual life cycles and in the history of the Great Being who is the planetary Logos of the Earth.  Therefore, until a man has taken certain initiations and thus achieved a measure of planetary consciousness, it is useless for him to speculate upon that record.  H. P. B. has touched, in the Secret Doctrine [S. D., III, 62; Section 6, page 67] ,  upon the subject of “the imperfect Gods,” and in these words lies the key to planetary evil.

Second.  It might briefly be said that, as far as our humanity is concerned, the terms planetary evil and cosmic evil might be interpreted thus:

Planetary evil arises from certain relations existing between our planetary Logos and another planetary Logos.  When this condition of polar opposition is adjusted, then planetary evil will cease.  The adjustment will be brought about through the mediation (occultly understood) of a third planetary Logos.  These three will eventually form an equilateral triangle, and then planetary evil will cease.  Free circulation will ensue; planetary obscuration will become possible, and the “imperfect Gods” will have achieved a relative perfection.  Thus will the karma of the manvantara, or secondary cycle, be adjusted, and so much planetary karmic evil be “worked off.”  All the above must be interpreted in its esoteric sense and not its exoteric.

The Voice of the Silence

The “Voice of the Silence” is an interesting and unique phrase in the writings of Alice A. Bailey. The following quotes are from the online books at the Lucis Trust website.

Sometimes AAB seems to mean something like “the still, small voice,” or what author Joseph J. Dewey calls “Soul Contact.”  You can read more on Soul Contact at The Seeker’s Guide to Soul Contact.

 Hence, in all meditation that is of occult value, the man has to do certain things in order to aid in bringing about the results. He tranquilises his bodies in order that there be no impediment to the egoic intent, and listens for the “Voice of the Silence. ” He responds then to that Voice consciously, and broods over the imparted plans. 

 The period wherein the aspirant struggles to achieve that inner quiet and directed attentiveness which will enable him to hear the Voice of the Silence. That voice expresses to him, through symbol and interpreted life experience the purposes and plans with which he may cooperate. 

 This Master first makes His presence felt through the “still small voice” of conscience, prompting us to higher and more unselfish living, and sounding a quick note of warning when there is deviation from the strict path of rectitude. Later this comes to be known as the Voice of the Silence, that word that comes from the “Word incarnate,” which is ourselves. Each of us is a Word made flesh. 

 Full consciousness will be achieved, and in the moment of achievement existence or entified manifestation will cease. All will be reabsorbed within the Absolute; pralaya, [xxxviii]38 or the cosmic heaven of rest will then ensue, and the Voice of the Silence will be heard no more. The reverberations of the WORD will die away, and the “Silence of the High Places” will reign supreme.

Alice A. Bailey On Albert Einstein

Alice A. Bailey mentions Albert Einstein in her writings a number of times and mentions “Einstein‘s newest theory of relativity.” 

  In the retrospect of history, the picture of the emerging prisoner, Man, can be seen in clear delineation. Little by little he has mastered the planetary boundaries; little by little, he has grown from the stage of cave man to that of a Shakespeare, a Newton, a Leonardo da Vinci, an Einstein, a St. Francis of Assisi, to a Christ and a Buddha. 

 ” In an article on Our Goal Is Unity in The Free World of October, 1944,… Albert Einstein regretfully took note of “an odious materialistic attitude toward life which leads to the predominance of an unrestrained selfishness. ” But how shall this materialism and selfishness of our culture be corrected. By geodesies in the space-time manifold of relativity theory. This would be cold comfort from a warm heart and Einstein does not offer this way out. Indeed, Einstein offers no clear solution. The simple truth is that the only counterweight to “materialism” is “idealism” and this must come out of the very heart of science, as an evolutionary development. 

  If each one of us would scientifically regard ourselves as centres of force, holding the matter of our bodies within our radius of control, and thus working through and in them, we should have a hypothesis whereby the entire cosmic scheme could be interpreted. If, as Einstein hints, our entire solar system is but a sphere, colouring is given to the deduction that it, in its turn, may be but a cosmic atom; thus we would have a place within a still larger scheme, and have a centre around which our system rotates, and in which it is as the electron to the atom. We have been told by astronomers that our entire system is probably revolving around a central point in the heavens.

Still further lines of investigation into the supernormal powers have been well summed up for us in a recent statement from an Australian periodical called The Federal Independent, and from which two paragraphs are here quoted: “New light on Christ’s walking on the waters was thrown recently by a scientist who has been making a special study of Einstein‘s newest theory of relativity. As a result of his investigations Professor H.  Continue reading “Alice A. Bailey On Albert Einstein”
