ADDRESSING HUMAN TRAFFIC VIA TRAINING: AFRICA SHOWCASE August 31, 2011

ADDRESSING HUMAN TRAFFIC VIA TRAINING: AFRICA SHOWCASE

Erle Frayne D. Argonza

Human trafficking can make or break a country that is known the seat of human traffic operations. So abhorrent is the phenomenon of human traffic and smuggling that any country named as seat of operations will need to work harder to shore up its tainted image, craft public policy to address the ailment, and strengthen institutions that can address the problem.

So gargantuan is the ailment of human traffic today as it has become globalized, with mafia groups collaborating across borders to smuggle people outside. Not only that, smuggled humans are also utilized to smuggle gold, treasures, and drugs, thus multiplying the complications to the problem.

Capacity-building initiatives aimed at training stakeholders, both grassroots and country-wide volunteer organizations, is another key result area for addressing the problem directly. Below is one such showcase training in Africa conducted by the IOM and partners.

IOM Provides Somaliland, Puntland and Djibouti Coastguards with Lifesaving Rescue at Sea Skills to Protect Vulnerable Migrants

19-07-2011

Djibouti – Coastguards from Somalia’s Puntland, Somaliland as well as Djibouti are taking part in an innovative IOM training programme to equip them with the necessary skills to assist and protect irregular migrants and asylum-seekers travelling at great risk through Somaliland, Puntland and Djibouti en route to Yemen and the Gulf States.
The six-day workshop, which opened yesterday in Djibouti City, brings together 50 coastguards as part of a Japanese-funded initiative to equip them with the necessary equipment and skills to assist and protect vulnerable migrants, trafficking victims and smuggled migrants.
“This training is critical to enhance the coastguards’ ability to save lives,” says IOM’s Mixed Migration Coordinator Husham Halim. “We are particularly encouraged to see that for the first time, coastguards from Somaliland are taking part in the training alongside colleagues from Puntland and Djibouti. This will no doubt increase their ability to respond at a sub-regional level.”
These workshops are part of a broader IOM programme to strengthen the protection of, and emergency assistance to, irregular migrants and asylum-seekers from Somalia and Ethiopia travelling through the region.
Every year, tens of thousands, mainly Ethiopian and Somali migrants and asylum-seekers, make the hazardous journey from their place of origin across the Horn of Africa and the Gulf of Aden to Yemen and beyond. These individuals, driven by political unrest and extreme poverty face not only dangers at sea but also physical risks, harassment and discrimination during their journey on land.

HORN OF AFRICA: MORE ON DROUGHT-RELATED MIGRATION

HORN OF AFRICA: MORE ON DROUGHT-RELATED MIGRATION

Erle Frayne D. Argonza

The famine that is now taking shape in the Horn of Africa is the subject of news features in canned Big Media outfits today. The alarm bells raised by international organizations regarding the matter have been quite successful in rapidly surfacing the malady before the public mind via sensationalized media reports.

As already noted earlier, 11 millions of folks are forecast to face starvation in the short-run largely due to drought. The congestion of migrants in resource-rich areas is complicating the issue, by depletion and competition for resources, thus deteriorating such regions into hovels of famine, hunger, diseases, and deaths.

Below is a report from the International Organization for Migration (IOM) on the same subject.

Drought Related Migration on the Increase in the Horn of Africa
Posted on Tuesday, 19-07-2011

Horn of Africa – The severe drought which is affecting vast areas of Somalia, Kenya, Ethiopia and Djibouti is leading to a considerable increase in complex, multi-directional migration flows, both within and across international borders, according to IOM missions in the region.
Those population movements involve not only refugees and asylum seekers but large numbers of migrants and pastoralists who have little choice but to move along numerous complex migration routes, initially from rural to urban areas and for many tens of thousands, across international borders to neighbouring countries.
Although information on many of these routes remains sketchy, increased population movements have been observed from drought affected areas in southern and central Somalia towards the capital Mogadishu, where heavy rains over the past few days have wrecked havoc among vulnerable displaced persons.
Displaced Somalis are also moving along perilous land routes from impoverished rural areas towards Somaliland and the self declared autonomous state of Puntland. Others continue their journey towards neighbouring Djibouti and across the treacherous Bab el Mandeb (Gate of Grief in Arabic) to Yemen and the Gulf States.
Recent reports in the Sudanese press of Somalis drowning in the Red Sea south of the city of Port Sudan could indicate the establishment of a new hazardous migration route from Somalia, Eritrea and Ethiopia to Sudan’s Red Sea State and then onto Saudi Arabia.
The situation in drought-affected regions of Somalia has led to a major increase of people seeking assistance in Ethiopia and Kenya, with some 50,000 new arrivals reported in June. Over the past three weeks, some 11,000 people have arrived in Ethiopia and more than 8,600 in Kenya, with daily arrivals now averaging 2,000 in Ethiopia and 1,200 in Kenya.
In Ethiopia, where the drought directly affects an estimated 4.5 million people, pastoralist communities are particularly in need of assistance because of the weakening or the death of their livestock. Their cross border movements in search of water and pasture for their livestock are creating a higher risk for resource-based conflict and further displacement, particularly in the drought-affected Northern Kenyan districts of Turkana, Wajir and Mandera, where Global Acute Malnutrition now exceeds 30 per cent among children, pregnant and lactating women.
The situation in Ethiopia is further complicated by the return of Ethiopian migrants from Yemen, where evacuation operations started in November 2010 resulted in the return of thousands of individuals to date. Major return areas are Oromiya, Tigray, and the Southern Nations, Nationalities and People’s Region (SNNPR) and Amhara regions, which are experiencing drought, crop failure and a dramatic increase in food and fuel prices.
The impact of these returns to resource-constrained communities has not yet been fully assessed, but it can be estimated that about 30 per cent returned to drought affected areas.
“Drought related migration is exacerbating an already complex situation of displacement and movement, triggered by conflict and instability and the returns of many Ethiopians and Somalis from Yemen,” says IOM’s Director of Operations and Emergencies Mohammed Abdiker. “Drought recognises no borders. The response to the current crisis has to take into account internal and cross border mobility as a survival strategy for large populations.”
IOM and UN partners have been working with governments in the Horn and East Africa to facilitate safe movement of pastoralists across border regions as a climate change coping mechanism.
The Security in Mobility (SIM) initiative called on regional governments to develop a policy to facilitate the safe movement of pastoralists within their countries and across borders using a collaborative approach that encompasses provision of humanitarian assistance, provision of basic services, facilitated migration and comprehensive security initiatives.
“Of all the key mitigation and coping mechanisms, mobility stands out as the most essential for pastoralists,” says IOM’s Abdiker. “No country in the region can singlehandedly tackle the complex challenges of climate change and migration. A concerted regional effort is therefore urgently needed.”

68 WEEKS TO ASCENSION: EMPIRE MANIACS OVERTHROWN, ARMAGEDDON SMASHED!

68 WEEKS TO ASCENSION: EMPIRE MANIACS OVERTHROWN, ARMAGEDDON SMASHED!

Erle Frayne D. Argonza
31 August 2011

Gracious Day from this Fellow of the Great White Lodge!

Only 68 weeks remain as of this writing. Already, signs are getting clearer of the changing timeline. Events that were long prophesied, such as Armageddon (the planned World War III) and the Tyranny in the West (Bonaparte’s re-embodiment and take-over of Euro-power), will not happen anymore.

The Almighty Father has been intervening on Earth since ’74 yet, and his intervention schemes are being reinforced by the spiritual Masters who comprise the Brotherhood. The interventions have been so potent as to stop the return of California to the sea, neutralize war plans and destructive agenda of the Illuminati/New World Order, mitigate powerful tectonics and storms, and more.

The overthrow of the Arab tyrant Gadhafy, who was actually installed to power by the British financier oligarchy, is among the additions to the events of overthrowing Orion-Draco overlords and tyranny. Libya’s democratization reinforces the neutralization of the planned World War III which could have pitted a Sunni Arab-Zion Alliance versus Shiite Persia & allies.

Prior to the Arab Spring, Israel was already undertaking heavy preparations for a direct assault on Iran. The preparations were largely done in Romania, though other pockets of areas served as tactical offensives training spots. World War III was just weeks away!

The Arab Spring came, and the planned global conflagration has gone awry. Even the technocrats of the Northern powers, who serve at the feet of the Orion-Draco Empire masters, openly admitted that they don’t possess the (analytical) tools to comprehend the Arab Spring, both the regional and the country-based studies, thus disabling the North’s oligarchy from waging a Plan B strategy.

The list of overthrows is now getting longer. There was the neutralization of the Bush Dynasty neo-cons in the USA that put an end to the planned dictatorship in America. Tunisia, Egypt, and Libya have seen their Orion bosses overthrown and replaced with nascent democracies. Shinawatra won power in Thailand, ending the 5-year rule of Northern oligarchs’ puppets and reversing the punitive neo-liberal policies there.

You can go ahead and add your list of overthrows. In Brazil the Empire overthrow was done earlier as Lula & party came to power (Rousseff continues the pro-people/anti-Empire policies of Lula). The whole of Latin America has gone pink, a pink that is soaked in autonomy and not the type that can be manipulated by the Illuminati operators.

Just about a decade ago, the Draconians sent a re-invasion force to retake Earth. Had it been successful, the Draconians could have reinforced the Empire leaders of Earth in their Tyranny installations (e.g. totalitarian Europe, Bush tyranny in USA) and World War III offensives. That invasion force was thwarted by the Confederation of Light, with just but a rag-tag lost command of it now doing hide & seek in the 4th dimension.

At this juncture, any Orion regime (80% of Terrans are Orions) that is overthrown will have no chance of being replaced by another Orion leadership. Starseeds are in critical mass of leaderships, from corporate to states, and their presence in new regimes ensures the policies of redistribution and harmony with other nations (away from polarities of wars and economic sabotage).

The fate of the once mighty Orion & Draco Empire is now clearer as far as Terra is concerned: its overthrow day in and day out. Solaria (solar system) is finally being freed from the Empire as the only remaining planet under the latter’s control is seeing regime changes even prior to the 2012 planetary Ascension.

HELL AS PER DIVINE WISDOM August 16, 2011

HELL AS PER DIVINE WISDOM

Erle Frayne D. Argonza / Ra

From negative elementals to negative humans, we cannot escape observing the attributes of negativity. We associate ‘negative’ to those manifest thought, feelings, and actions that are antisocial, hostile, sociopathic. We experience being with negative persons and we feel the dense energies resonating from them even if they don’t talk to us at all.

Such behavior, if persistent and recurring to the extent that it dominates one’s behavior totality or psyche (personality), constitutes the ‘demonic’ among humans. Among elementals or nature beings (devic world) they have their equivalents of negative beings whom ancient ones termed as asura.

What then happens to a negative person upon death? Do they go to ‘hell’? Is hell the same as the kama loka of the ancient Indians? What about Hades, is that a place (location) or a subjectivity, or is it highly destructive energy?

When a person persists on doing crimes incarnation after incarnation, this is what we get from Theos Sophia about their fate: their silver cord will be cut off in the long run, thus undercutting their lower selves or ‘ego’ from the imperishable atma-buddhi-manas upper triad. The cut-off ego will drift in the dense sphere of lower astral dimension and will eventually disintegrate.

Let us note the following quotation from the book The Key to Theosophy by H.P.Blavatsky regarding the subject.

ON THE FATE OF THE LOWER “PRINCIPLES”
ENQUIRER. You spoke of Kama-loka, what is it?
THEOSOPHIST. When the man dies, his lower three principles leave him for ever; i. e., body, life, and the vehicle of the latter, the astral body or the double of the living man. And then, his four principles — the central or middle principle, the animal soul or Kama-rupa, with what it has assimilated from the lower Manas, and the higher triad find themselves in Kama-loka. The latter is an astral locality, the limbus of scholastic theology, the Hades of the ancients, and, strictly speaking, a locality only in a relative sense. It has neither a definite area nor boundary, but exists within subjective space; i. e., is beyond our sensuous perceptions. Still it exists, and it is there that the astral eidolons of all the beings that have lived, animals included, await their second death. For the animals it comes with the disintegration and the entire fading out of their astral particles to the last. For the human eidolon it begins when the Atma-Buddhi-Manasic triad is said to “separate” itself from its lower principles, or the reflection of the ex-personality, by falling into the Devachanic state.
ENQUIRER. And what happens after this?
THEOSOPHIST. Then the Kama-rupic phantom, remaining bereft of its informing thinking principle, the higher Manas, and the lower aspect of the latter, the animal intelligence, no longer receiving light from the higher mind, and no longer having a physical brain to work through, collapses.
ENQUIRER. In what way?
THEOSOPHIST. Well, it falls into the state of the frog when certain portions of its brain are taken out by the vivisector. It can think no more, even on the lowest animal plane. Henceforth it is no longer even the lower Manas, since this “lower” is nothing without the “higher.”
ENQUIRER. And is it this nonentity which we find materializing in Seance rooms with Mediums?
THEOSOPHIST. It is this nonentity. A true nonentity, however, only as to reasoning or cogitating powers, still an Entity, however astral and fluidic, as shown in certain cases when, having been magnetically and unconsciously drawn toward a medium, it is revived for a time and lives in him by proxy, so to speak. This “spook,” or the Kama-rupa, may be compared with the jelly-fish, which has an ethereal gelatinous appearance so long as it is in its own element, or water (the medium’s specific AURA), but which, no sooner is it thrown out of it, than it dissolves in the hand or on the sand, especially in sunlight. In the medium’s Aura, it lives a kind of vicarious life and reasons and speaks either through the medium’s brain or those of other persons present. But this would lead us too far, and upon other people’s grounds, whereon I have no desire to trespass. Let us keep to the subject of reincarnation.
ENQUIRER. What of the latter? How long does the incarnating Ego remain in the Devachanic state?
THEOSOPHIST. This, we are taught, depends on the degree of spirituality and the merit or demerit of the last incarnation. The average time is from ten to fifteen centuries, as I already told you.
ENQUIRER. But why could not this Ego manifest and communicate with mortals as Spiritualists will have it? What is there to prevent a mother from communicating with the children she left on earth, a husband with his wife, and so on? It is a most consoling belief, I must confess; nor do I wonder that those who believe in it are so averse to give it up.
THEOSOPHIST. Nor are they forced to, unless they happen to prefer truth to fiction, however “consoling.” Uncongenial our doctrines may be to Spiritualists; yet, nothing of what we believe in and teach is half as selfish and cruel as what they preach.
ENQUIRER. I do not understand you. What is selfish?
THEOSOPHIST. Their doctrine of the return of Spirits, the real “personalities” as they say; and I will tell you why. If Devachan — call it “paradise” if you like, a “place of bliss and of supreme felicity,” if it is anything — is such a place (or say state), logic tells us that no sorrow or even a shade of pain can be experienced therein. “God shall wipe away all the tears from the eyes” of those in paradise, we read in the book of many promises. And if the “Spirits of the dead” are enabled to return and see all that is going on on earth, and especially in their homes, what kind of bliss can be in store for them?

EARTH’S SEPTENARY CONSTITUTION

EARTH’S SEPTENARY CONSTITUTION
Erle Frayne D. Argonza / Ra

Magandang gabi! Good evening!

In previous notes this White Robe from Filipinas already explained the subject of 7 Planes or dimensions of reality. Having been taught Theos Sophia or divine wisdom by the masters (it was El Morya who began to guide me at age 18, assisted by Master Jacob & Seraphim Master), I have used the frames of spiritual science as reference when I began to do my missions to young ones in the 1980s yet.

The question we raise here is: could the Earth possibly comprise of other planes as well? For those who are accustomed to recalling their dreams upon waking up, they know fully well that they’ve just been to the dream world and dreamt of this and that content or theme.

Being an Adept of the Brotherhood, I can testify to the existence of other planes or dimensions of the Earth. By dint of the same experience, I can testify to the existence of other planets that revolve around the sun as well, though these are invisible to the eyes. Theos Sophia in fact revealed 30 planets that revolve around the sun, most planets being invisible to the biophysical eyes.

In answer to the main query, let us note the following quotation from Helena P. Blavatsky’s The Key to Theosophy.

ON THE SEPTENARY CONSTITUTION OF OUR PLANET
ENQUIRER. I understand that you describe our earth as forming part of a chain of earths?
THEOSOPHIST. We do. But the other six “earths” or globes, are not on the same plane of objectivity as our earth is; therefore we cannot see them.
ENQUIRER. Is that on account of the great distance?
THEOSOPHIST. Not at all, for we see with our naked eye planets and even stars at immeasurably greater distances; but it is owing to those six globes being outside our physical means of perception, or plane of being. It is not only that their material density, weight, or fabric are entirely different from those of our earth and the other known planets; but they are (to us) on an entirely different layer of space, so to speak; a layer not to be perceived or felt by our physical senses. And when I say “layer,” please do not allow your fancy to suggest to you layers like strata or beds laid one over the other, for this would only lead to another absurd misconception. What I mean by “layer” is that plane of infinite space which by its nature cannot fall under our ordinary waking perceptions, whether mental or physical; but which exists in nature outside of our normal mentality or consciousness, outside of our three dimensional space, and outside of our division of time. Each of the seven fundamental planes (or layers) in space — of course as a whole, as the pure space of Locke’s definition, not as our finite space — has its own objectivity and subjectivity, its own space and time, its own consciousness and set of senses. But all this will be hardly comprehensible to one trained in the modern ways of thought.
ENQUIRER. What do you mean by a different set of senses? Is there anything on our human plane that you could bring as an illustration of what you say, just to give a clearer idea of what you may mean by this variety of senses, spaces, and respective perceptions?
THEOSOPHIST. None; except, perhaps, that which for Science would be rather a handy peg on which to hang a counter-argument. We have a different set of senses in dream-life, have we not? We feel, talk, hear, see, taste and function in general on a different plane; the change of state of our consciousness being evidenced by the fact that a series of acts and events embracing years, as we think, pass ideally through our mind in one instant. Well, that extreme rapidity of our mental operations in dreams, and the perfect naturalness, for the time being, of all the other functions, show us that we are on quite another plane. Our philosophy teaches us that, as there are seven fundamental forces in nature, and seven planes of being, so there are seven states of consciousness in which man can live, think, remember and have his being. To enumerate these here is impossible, and for this one has to turn to the study of Eastern metaphysics. But in these two states — the waking and the dreaming — every ordinary mortal, from a learned philosopher down to a poor untutored savage, has a good proof that such states differ.
ENQUIRER. You do not accept, then, the well-known explanations of biology and physiology to account for the dream state?
THEOSOPHIST. We do not. We reject even the hypotheses of your psychologists, preferring the teachings of Eastern Wisdom. Believing in seven planes of Kosmic being and states of Consciousness, with regard to the Universe or the Macrocosm, we stop at the fourth plane, finding it impossible to go with any degree of certainty beyond. But with respect to the Microcosm, or man, we speculate freely on his seven states and principles.
ENQUIRER. How do you explain these?
THEOSOPHIST. We find, first of all, two distinct beings in man; the spiritual and the physical, the man who thinks, and the man who records as much of these thoughts as he is able to assimilate. Therefore we divide him into two distinct natures; the upper or the spiritual being, composed of three “principles” or aspects; and the lower or the physical quaternary, composed of four — in all seven.

EMANATION, EVOLUTION, CREATION

EMANATION, EVOLUTION, CREATION

Erle Frayne D. Argonza / Ra

Whether creation is the endearing criterion for the ceaseless process of becoming in Kosmos is subject of debate. Theos Sophia or divine wisdom, the body of spiritual knowledge and truth mandated by the spiritual Hierarchy to be released to the broad public at the close of the 19th century, has an alternative viewpoint to offer regarding the subject.

The One Universal Principle—omniscient, omnipresent, omnipotent, God as the folks sayeth, is no personal, anthropomorphic being that we chose to look like. The Spirit-Force from which we were projections or emanations—“creations” as the devotee folks choose to call it—doesn’t sleep at all. So during the ‘day of Brahma’ when the manvantara (cycle of lifewave) begins with the outbreath of the Almighty, Kosmos and subjective worlds (inclusive of beings) emanate from the Spirit-Force, each entity then subject to the universal laws emanating from the same.

God does not create, and there is no such thing as a personal God. These truths were resonated by the mahatmas and their chelas time and again, though indeed such lines are hard to accept by devotees who are used to mechanistic thoughts about the Spirit-Force and the realms of living. That God ‘creates’ is the product of finite mortal minds who equated the evolution process to creation.

Below is the quotation from a section of the book The Key to Theosophy by Helena P. Blavatsky.

EVOLUTION AND ILLUSION
ENQUIRER. But who is it that creates each time the Universe?
THEOSOPHIST. No one creates it. Science would call the process evolution; the pre-Christian philosophers and the Orientalists called it emanation: we, Occultists and Theosophists, see in it the only universal and eternal reality casting a periodical reflection of itself on the infinite Spatial depths. This reflection, which you regard as the objective material universe, we consider as a temporary illusion and nothing else. That alone which is eternal is real.
ENQUIRER. At that rate, you and I are also illusions.
THEOSOPHIST. As flitting personalities, to-day one person, to-morrow another — we are. Would you call the sudden flashes of the Aurora borealis, the Northern lights, a “reality,” though it is as real as can be while you look at it? Certainly not; it is the cause that produces it, if permanent and eternal, which is the only reality, while the other is but a passing, illusion.
ENQUIRER. All this does not explain to me how this illusion called the universe originates; how the conscious to be, proceeds to manifest itself from the unconsciousness that is.
THEOSOPHIST. It is unconsciousness only to our finite consciousness. Verily may we paraphrase verse v, in the 1st chapter of St. John, and say “and (Absolute) light (which is darkness) shineth in darkness (which is illusionary material light); and the darkness comprehendeth it not.” This absolute light is also absolute and immutable law. Whether by radiation or emanation — we need not quarrel over terms — the universe passes out of its homogeneous subjectivity on to the first plane of manifestation, of which planes there are seven, we are taught. With each plane it becomes more dense and material until it reaches this, our plane, on which the only world approximately known and understood in its physical composition by Science, is the planetary or Solar system — one sui generis, we are told.
ENQUIRER. What do you mean by sui generis?
THEOSOPHIST. I mean that, though the fundamental law and the universal working of laws of Nature are uniform, still our Solar system (like every other such system in the millions of others in Cosmos) and even our Earth, has its own programme of manifestations differing from the respective programmes of all others. We speak of the inhabitants of other planets and imagine that if they are men, i. e., thinking entities, they must be as we are. The fancy of poets and painters and sculptors never fails to represent even the angels as a beautiful copy of man — plus wings. We say that all this is an error and a delusion; because, if on this little earth alone one finds such a diversity in its flora, fauna and mankind — from the sea-weed to the cedar of Lebanon, from the jelly-fish to the elephant, from the Bushman and negro to the Apollo Belvedere — alter the conditions cosmic and planetary, and there must be as a result quite a different flora, fauna and mankind. The same laws will fashion quite a different set of things and beings even on this our plane, including in it all our planets. How much more different then must be external nature in other Solar systems, and how foolish is it to judge of other stars and worlds and human beings by our own, as physical science does!
ENQUIRER. But what are your data for this assertion?
THEOSOPHIST. What science in general will never accept as proof — the cumulative testimony of an endless series of Seers who have testified to this fact. Their spiritual visions, real explorations by, and through, physical and spiritual senses untrammelled by blind flesh, were systematically checked and compared one with the other, and their nature sifted. All that was not corroborated by unanimous and collective experience was rejected, while that only was recorded as established truth which, in various ages, under different climes, and throughout an untold series of incessant observations, was found to agree and receive constantly further corroboration. The methods used by our scholars and students of the psycho-spiritual sciences do not differ from those of students of the natural and physical sciences, as you may see. Only our fields of research are on two different planes, and our instruments are made by no human hands, for which reason perchance they are only the more reliable. The retorts, accumulators, and microscopes of the chemist and naturalist may get out of order; the telescope and the astronomer’s horological instruments may get spoiled; our recording instruments are beyond the influence of weather or the elements.
ENQUIRER. And therefore you have implicit faith in them?
THEOSOPHIST. Faith is a word not to be found in theosophical dictionaries: we say knowledge based, on observation and experience. There is this difference, however, that while the observation and experience of physical science lead the Scientists to about as many “working” hypotheses as there are minds to evolve them, our knowledge consents to add to its lore only those facts which have become undeniable, and which are fully and absolutely demonstrated. We have no two beliefs or hypotheses on the same subject.
ENQUIRER. Is it on such data that you came to accept the strange theories we find in Esoteric Buddhism?
THEOSOPHIST. Just so. These theories may be slightly incorrect in their minor details, and even faulty in their exposition by lay students; they are facts in nature, nevertheless, and come nearer the truth than any scientific hypothesis.

SOURCE OF THE SOUL

Erle Frayne D. Argonza / Ra

Let us continue with the reflections on Theos Sophia or divine wisdom, with focus in this note on the source of the human soul. Popular belief holds the reductionist contention that “all souls came from God.” So we may as well begin our thoughts there, for the sake of simplification.

The process of the emergence of souls—of ensoulment—is complex and very tedious. Going by the laws appurtenant to cosmic evolution or cosmogenesis, the first sparks of the One Universal Principle could be conceived as those divine beings on the 7th plane, nearest to the Godhead, who were pure monad. Then consequently the monadic beings emanated or projected their essences unto the next plane, the 6th plane, thus resulting to ‘oversouls’ (buddhi and Christos are equivalent terms)

The next level of evolutes would be conceived of as group-souls emanating or projected from the higher-order oversouls, thus resulting to collective souls at the 5th plane. It is such souls that were planned at the beginning of history in our manvantara or ‘cycle of lifewave’ to embody down further in the lower dimensions or planes, as the evolutionary law says: to be able to evolve, one must devolve.

Let us note the simplification made by HP Blavatsky on the subject, as the following notes were culled from her book The Key to Theosophy.

ON THE SOURCE OF THE HUMAN SOUL
ENQUIRER. How, then, do you account for man being endowed with a Spirit and Soul? Whence these?
THEOSOPHIST. From the Universal Soul. Certainly not bestowed by a personal God. Whence the moist element in the jelly-fish? From the Ocean which surrounds it, in which it lives and breathes and has its being, and whither it returns when dissolved.
ENQUIRER. So you reject the teaching that Soul is given, or breathed into man, by God?
THEOSOPHIST. We are obliged to. The “Soul” spoken of in ch. ii. of Genesis (v. 7) is, as therein stated, the “living Soul” or Nephesh (the vital, animal soul) with which God (we say “nature” and immutable law) endows man like every animal. Is not at all the thinking soul or mind; least of all is it the immortal Spirit.
ENQUIRER. Well, let us put it otherwise: is it God who endows man with a human rational Soul and immortal Spirit?
THEOSOPHIST. Again, in the way you put the question, we must object to it. Since we believe in no personal God, how can we believe that he endows man with anything? But granting, for the sake of argument, a God who takes upon himself the risk of creating a new Soul for every new-born baby, all that can be said is that such a God can hardly be regarded as himself endowed with any wisdom or prevision. Certain other difficulties and the impossibility of reconciling this with the claims made for the mercy, justice, equity and omniscience of that God, are so many deadly reefs on which this theological dogma is daily and hourly broken.
