The Solar Angels of Alice A. Bailey

As you can see below, Alice A. Bailey had quite a bit to say about Solar Angels. You can use our search engine here to search the writings of Alice A. Bailey. Links on these pages are to Lucis Trust, the home of her writings on the Internet. 

 (4) By stimulating the egoic bodies of men so that the solar Angels may carry on with greater precision and force their conflict with the lunar gods.  This is the true war in heaven.  As the solar Gods [cclxxxvi] 87 descend ever [951] nearer to the physical plane, and in their descent assume a steadily increasing control of the lunar natures, the thoughts and desires of men are consequently purified and refined.  The solar fires put out the lunar light, and the lower nature is eventually purified and transmuted.  In time the solar Angels blaze forth in all their glory through the medium of the lower nature on the physical plane, that lower nature providing fuel to the flames.  The hated “Dweller on the Threshold” thus gradually dies for lack of sustenance, and disintegrates for lack of vitality, and man is set free. 

 b. At present much of the manipulation of mental matter and its direction into forms of some kind or another emanates from lower levels, and is the result of powerful desire based on physical attraction.  The desire bodies, and not the mental bodies of the majority of men are the most powerful, and set up such a strong vibration (due to the force of two groups of lunar lords) that the third group of lunar entities who construct the mental body are swept into a willing response, and the whole threefold lower nature is immediately engaged in the dire process of feeding the dreaded “Dweller.”  This direction of energy follows the line of least resistance.  One of the primary works of the Ego, as we well know, is to impose a new rhythm upon his shadow and reflection, the lower man, and it is this imposition which in time deflects energy away from man’s distorted creation, and brings his vibration into tune with that of his solar Angel

The Incomprehensible Alice A. Bailey

By my count Alice A. Bailey (AAB) uses the word “incomprehensible” 71 times in her writing that is available on the Lucis Trust website. Most of if not  all instances are attributed to  Djwhal Khul (DK) whom AAB described as a “Master.” Here are some samples:

  This Rod of Power is used at the initiation of the seven Heavenly Men on cosmic levels. It is used also in the initiation of groups, a thing almost incomprehensible to us.  Treatise on Cosmic Fire

  His subjective life is governed by the Law of Attraction; His material form is governed by the Law of Economy. He is coming under another cosmic law as yet incomprehensible to men, which law is but revealed to the highest initiates. A Treatise on Cosmic Fire

 They individualised as the result of work accomplished during incomprehensible aeons of endeavour. A Treatise on Cosmic Fire

 This occult abstraction is brought about by an effort of the will at present incomprehensible A Treatise on Cosmic Fire

Dweller on the Threshold

The Dweller on the Threshold is an entity we encounter in both Theosophy and the Arcane School of Alice A. Bailey. Below are some quotes on the Dweller on the Threshold in the writings of Alice A. Bailey(AAB) and Djwhal Khul (DK). Links on these pages  are to the online books at the Lucis Trust website.

 In Scorpio, two most occult factors emerge from the past and begin to engross the attention of the disciple. One is memory and the other is, as a consequence of the memory, the Dweller on the Threshold. Memory in the sense here involved is not simply just a faculty of the mind, as is so oft supposed, but it is essentially a creative power. 

 It is basically an aspect of thought and—coupled with imagination—is a creative agent because thoughts are things, as well you know. From ancient recesses of the memory, from a deeply rooted past which is definitely recalled, and from the racial and the individual subconscious (or founded and established thought reservoirs and desires, inherited and inherent) there emerges from individual past lives and experience that which is the sum total of all instinctual tendencies, of all inherited glamours and of all phases of wrong mental attitudes; to these (as they constitute a blended whole) we give the name of the Dweller on the Threshold. This Dweller is the sum total of all the personality characteristics which have remained unconquered and unsubdued and which must be finally overcome before initiation can be taken. 

 Each life sees some progress made; some personality defects straightened out and some real advance effected. But the unconquered residue and the ancient liabilities are numerous and excessively potent and—when soul contact is adequately established—there eventuates a life wherein the highly developed and powerful personality becomes, in itself, the Dweller on the Threshold. Then the Angel of the Presence and the Dweller stand face to face and something must then be done.

 Upon the mental plane the Angel of the Presence and the Dweller on the Threshold are brought face to face. Their synthesis is brought about upon the Path of Initiation.  Continue reading “Dweller on the Threshold”
