46 WEEKS TO 12/21/12: YANG WATER DRAGON YEAR’S SIGNIFICANCE January 31, 2012

46 WEEKS TO 12/21/12: YANG WATER DRAGON YEAR’S SIGNIFICANCE

Erle Frayne D. Argonza / Guru Ra
31 January 2012

Gracious day to all enthused spiritual aspirants, Lightworkers and people servants!

The Chinese New Year just kicked off, serving as kick off of a year of radical transition to new mega-realities. The year is declaratively a year of the Yang Water Dragon. That bodes well for those aspiring to join the New Earth soon, while it bodes ill for those who will be driven out of the planet to join their own fellows with whom they share low levels of awareness.

The Yang in the Dragon makes for Yang Dragon, which reveals the workings of the Father who has been intervening on Earth since 1974 yet. The Water in the Dragon yields the Water Dragon that is the Mother’s aura of protection and nurturing, as water will truly come in colossal amounts to serve as the amniotic fluid of a new world birthing in the Mother’s Womb.

Meantime, spiritist mediums and pretenders who now form the large entourage of false prophets and false teachers are intensifying their dissemination of confusing claims that tend to obfuscate the phenomena of planetary ascension and divine grace that will be granted upon the Service-for-Others who will mutate to 4th dimensional humans just 46 weeks from now. Let it be re-echoed: karmic penalties await such quacks as Gabriel is readying the enforcement of the sticks on them.

Just a couple of years back, there were still approximately a million Evil Masters who comprised the ‘gods of Pralaya’ (diffusion) remaing Evil Ones that pestered Earth for many eons. Gabriel’s Forces then commenced with the arrest and imprisonment of the said gods of destruction, in consonance with Divine Plan for Earth, around late 2009. I was among the Brothers of Light who witnessed the commencement of the arrests, and I’d say verily that the influence field of the Evil Ones has narrowed immensely since then.

As a result of such karmic action, fewer Evil Masters now remain who desperately ensue with their sinister agenda, while the numbers of White Robes and Melchizedeks are increasing by the month. The balance of forces has already clearly tilted in favor of the Light Forces since after the autumnal equinox of 2011 yet.

But that isn’t enough a karmic action sweep. Gabriel’s Forces likewise enforced punitive action on the souls of many Demoniacs down the surface, locked up their souls in the Kama Loka (hell) planet reserved for them. Result: as much as 200 millions of Demoniacs have their physical shells remaining here since the campaign begun. Such shells behave much like the hybrid soul-less Men-In-Black or Deros that can be felled by defending Terrans without causing guilt at all, for the shells are mere objects.

As the balance of forces tilts rapidly towards the Light, evil operators are busy expanding meditation groups as front organizations, groups that deny the Ascension Plan altogether. They flaunt concocted links with the Masters of Light, yet intentionally don’t recognize the Brothers of Light who are on the surface, thus revealing what they truly are: Luciferan operators. One such False Prophet unabashedly used St Germain’s name to sales-talk people into the Luciferan agenda of catch-as-many-souls-as-you-can who will later join the Hell Planet awaiting them.

Puppets of Fallen Aliens, such as that evil extraterrestrial leader who manifests with the face of a Lion to beguiled folks, are likewise busy quacking anti-Galactic Federation pedantries and styling themselves as messianic role-players out to save many folks from coming inundations. Yet they too deceive people by denying the Ascension Plan for Earth! They constitute networks of New Age cults that have mushroomed across the past four (4) decades, cults whose leaders are directly controlled by Ahriman or AntiChrist today.

We Brothers & Sisters of Light and our chelas could only but be amused with the pedantries of the Evil Ones’ puppet sycophants, knowing that they are getting exposed more and more by the day. The Dragon of Wisdom is awakening among those in the know, and this Year of the Yang Water Dragon will show greater favor for those preparing for the New Earth.

Kung Hei Fat Choi! Welcome the Yang Water Dragon!

 

‘SEVEN SONS’ & UNIVERSE’S ESSENCE January 30, 2012

‘SEVEN SONS’ & UNIVERSE’S ESSENCE

Erle Frayne D. Argonza

The ‘7 sons’ and mulaprakriti or svabhavat (plastic essence of the universe) were then clarified by the spiritually Perfected Ones. Note that the ‘7 sons’ and ‘plastic essence of the universe’ are intertwined, as the divine creator beings (sons) couldn’t work out on manifesting reality down to the lowest planes without the svabhavat.

So was it declared by the Perfected Ones, in Sloka 5 of Stanza 2, Book of Dzyan, the thesis: “THE SEVEN (Sons) WERE NOT YET BORN FROM THE WEB OF LIGHT. DARKNESS ALONE WAS FATHER-MOTHER, SVÂBHÂVAT, AND SVÂBHÂVAT WAS IN DARKNESS (a).”

HPBlavatsky substantiated the sloka in Volume I, Secret Doctrine, through the following articulation:

(a) The Secret Doctrine, in the Stanzas given here, occupies itself chiefly, if not entirely, with our Solar System, and especially with our planetary chain. The “Seven Sons,” therefore, are the creators of the latter. This teaching will be explained more fully hereafter. (See Part II., “Theogony of the Creative Gods.”)
Svâbhâvat, the “Plastic Essence” that fills the Universe, is the root of all things. Svâbhâvat is, so to say, the Buddhistic concrete aspect of the abstraction called in Hindu philosophy Mulaprakriti. It is the body of the Soul, and that which Ether would be to Akasa, the latter being the informing principle of the former. Chinese mystics have made of it the synonym of “being.” In the Ekasloka-Shastra of Nagârjuna (the Lung-shu of China) called by the Chinese the Yih-shu-lu-kia-lun, it is said that the original word of Yeu is “Being” or “Subhâva,” “the Substance giving substance to itself,” also explained by him as meaning “without action and with action,” “the nature which has no nature of its own.” Subhâva, from which Svâbhâvat, is composed of two words: Su “fair,” “handsome,” “good;” Sva, “self;” and bhava. “being” or “states of being.”

PARABRAHMAN: THE ONE RAY January 27, 2012

PARABRAHMAN: THE ONE RAY

Erle Frayne D. Argonza

The spiritually Perfected Ones declared in Sloka 4 of Stanza 2, Book of Dzyan, “HER HEART HAD NOT YET OPENED FOR THE ONE RAY TO ENTER, THENCE TO FALL AS THREE INTO FOUR IN THE LAP OF MAYA (a).

On the highest level of reality, ‘The One Ray’ and ‘The Three’ are of supreme import. ‘The One Ray’ is Parabrahman in Sanskrit, and as the contention is saying, Parabrahman at the very inception was ‘one ray’: that the three ‘divine persons’ were One.

In synergy with the Mahatmas, HPB substantiated the same sloka, with the following articulation, in Volume I, Secret Doctrine:

(a) The Primordial Substance had not yet passed out of its precosmic latency into differentiated objectivity, or even become the (to man, so far,) invisible Protyle of Science. But, as the hour strikes and it becomes receptive of the Fohatic impress of the Divine Thought (the Logos, or the male aspect of the Anima Mundi, Alaya)—its heart opens. It differentiates, and the THREE (Father, Mother, Son) are transformed into four. Herein lies the origin of the double mystery of the Trinity and the immaculate Conception, The first and Fundamental dogma of Occultism is Universal Unity (or Homogeneity) under three aspects. This led to a possible conception of Deity, which as an absolute unity must remain forever incomprehensible to finite intellects. “If thou wouldest believe in the Power which acts within the root of a plant, or imagine the root concealed under the soil, thou hast to think of its stalk or trunk and of its leaves and flowers. Thou canst not imagine that Power independently of these objects. Life can be known only by the Tree of Life. . . .” (Precepts for Yoga). The idea of Absolute Unity
would be broken entirely in our conception, had we not something concrete before our eyes to contain that Unity. And the deity being absolute, must be omnipresent, hence not an atom but contains IT within itself. The roots, the trunk and its many branches are three distinct objects, yet they are one tree. Say the Kabalists: “The Deity is one, because It is infinite. It is triple, because it is ever manifesting.” This manifestation is triple in its aspects, for it requires, as Aristotle has it, three principles for every natural body to become objective: privation, form, and matter.* Privation meant in the mind of the great philosopher that which the Occultists call the prototypes impressed in the Astral Light—the lowest plane and world of Anima Mundi. The union of these three principles depends upon a fourth—the LIFE which radiates from the summits of the Unreachable, to become an universally diffused Essence on the manifested planes of Existence. And this QUATERNARY (Father, Mother, Son, as a UNITY, and a quaternary, as a living manifestation) has been the means of leading to the very archaic Idea of Immaculate Concepcion, now finally crystallized into a dogma of the Christian Church, which carnalized this metaphysical idea beyond any common sense. For one has but to read the Kabala and study its numerical methods of interpretation to find the origin of that dogma. It is purely astronomical, mathematical, and pre-eminently metaphysical: the Male element in Nature (personified by the male deities and Logoi—Viraj, or Brahmâ; Horus, or Osiris, etc., etc.) is born through, not from, an immaculate source, personified by the “Mother”; because that Male having a Mother cannot have a “Father”—the abstract Deity being sexless, and not even a Being but Be-ness, or Life itself. Let us render this in the mathematical language of the author of “The Source of Measures.” Speaking of the “Measure of a Man” and his numerical (Kabalistic) value, he writes that in Genesis, ch. iv., v. 1, “It is called the ‘Man even Jehovah’ Measure, and this is obtained in this way, viz.: 113 x 5=565, and the value 565 can be placed under the form of expression 56.5 x 10=565. Here the Man-number 113 becomes a factor of 56.5 x 10, and the (Kabalistic) reading of this last numbered expression is Jod, He, Vau, He, or Jehovah. . . . The expansion of 565 into 56.5 x 10 is purposed to show the emanation of the male (Jod) from the female (Eva) principle; or, so to speak, the birth of a male element from an immaculate source, in other words, an immaculate conception.”
Thus is repeated on Earth the mystery enacted, according to the Seers, on the divine plane. The “Son” of the immaculate Celestial Virgin (or the undifferentiated cosmic protyle, Matter in its infinitude) is born again on Earth as the Son of the terrestrial Eve—our mother Earth, and becomes Humanity as a total—past, present, and future—for Jehovah or Jod-he-vau-he is androgyne, or both male and female. Above, the Son is the whole KOSMOS; below, he is MANKIND. The triad or triangle becomes Tetraktis, the Sacred Pythagorean number, the perfect Square, and a 6-faced cube on Earth. The Macroprosopus (the Great Face) is now Microprosopus (the lesser face); or, as the Kabalists have it, the “Ancient of Days,” descending on Adam Kadmon whom he uses as his vehicle to manifest through, gets transformed into Tetragrammaton. It is now in the “Lap of Maya,” the Great Illusion, and between itself and the Reality has the Astral Light, the great Deceiver of man’s limited senses, unless Knowledge through Paramarthasatya comes to the rescue.

GERM OF LIFE January 24, 2012

GERM OF LIFE

Erle Frayne D. Argonza

Let’s move on to the subject of ‘germ of life’. Stanza 2 seems to parallel much the phenomenology of Hegel whose disputations centered on the process of ‘being-in-itself’ mutating into a ‘being-for-itself’. Along such a line of thought, we can reflect on the evolutionary process it takes for the ‘germ of life’ to proceed from “was-not” (potentiality) to “is” (actuality).

The subject of ‘germ of life’ brings us back to the theme of Cosmic Egg from which the former issues from. To aid us in our understanding of the recondite subject, the Perfected Ones advanced the following cogitation, in Sloka 3 of Stanza 2, Book of Dzyan, to note: “THE HOUR HAD NOT YET STRUCK; THE RAY HAD NOT YET FLASHED INTO THE GERM (a); THE MATRI-PADMA (mother lotus) HAD NOT YET SWOLLEN (b).*”

The lotus surely has very esoteric significance in comprehending deep spiritual truths. It was directly employed by the Perfected Ones as a wisdom tool in relation to the ‘germ of life’, in like manner that yogi-Christs or rishis liken the crown chakra to the 960-petalled lotus.

A further substantiation of the subject was articulated by HPB, chela of the Mahatmas & Chohans, in Volume I, Secret Doctrine, to note:

(a) The ray of the “Ever Darkness” becomes, as it is emitted, a ray of effulgent light or life, and flashes into the “Germ”—the point in the Mundane Egg, represented by matter in its abstract sense. But the term “Point” must not be understood as applying to any particular point in Space, for a germ exists in the centre of every atom, and these collectively form “the Germ;” or rather, as no atom can be made visible to our physical eye, the collectivity of these (if the term can be applied to something which is boundless and infinite) forms the noumenon of eternal and indestructible matter.

(b) One of the symbolical figures for the Dual creative power in Nature (matter and force on the material plane) is Padma, the water-lily of India. The Lotus is the product of heat (fire) and water (vapour or Ether); fire standing in every philosophical and religious system as a representation of the Spirit of Deity,† the active, male, generative principle; and Ether, or the Soul of matter, the light of the fire, for the passive female principle from which everything in this Universe emanated. Hence, Ether or Water is the Mother, and Fire is the Father. Sir W. Jones (and before him archaic botany) showed that the seeds of the Lotus contain—even before they germinate—perfectly formed leaves, the miniature shape of what one day, as perfect plants, they will become: nature thus giving us a specimen of the preformation of its production . . . the seed of all phanerogamous plants bearing proper flowers containing an embryo plantlet ready formed.‡ (See Part II., “The Lotus Flower as an Universal Symbol.”) This explains the sentence “The Mother had not yet swollen”—the form being usually sacrificed to the inner or root idea in Archaic symbology.
The Lotus, or Padma, is, moreover, a very ancient and favourite
simile for the Kosmos itself, and also for man. The popular reasons given are, firstly, the fact just mentioned, that the Lotus-seed contains within itself a perfect miniature of the future plant, which typefies the fact that the spiritual prototypes of all things exist in the immaterial world before those things become materialised on Earth. Secondly, the fact that the Lotus plant grows up through the water, having its root in the Ilus, or mud, and spreading its flower in the air above. The Lotus thus typifies the life of man and also that of the Kosmos; for the Secret Doctrine teaches that the elements of both are the same, and that both are developing in the same direction. The root of the Lotus sunk in the mud represents material life, the stalk passing up through the water typifies existence in the astral world, and the flower floating on the water and opening to the sky is emblematical of spiritual being.

DOES ABSOLUTE KNOW ITSELF? January 21, 2012

DOES ABSOLUTE KNOW ITSELF?

Erle Frayne D. Argonza

Does the Absolute know itself? What is Absolute Being? Does it not require senses in order to know the self? How can the senses be there during the ‘deep sleep’ phase of the great cycle of Maha-kalpa? If in such a state without senses, is Absolute Being then the same as Non-Being?

Such a guide question is surely tough to ponder about. Precisely why there is a great difference between a chela, who goes through an initiation program towards self-realization or nirvana with full guidance of a sage or Master (teacher), from a mere freethinker who pursues the Path by going through blind alleys.

To reflect more on the ‘problematique’, the Perfected Ones contended on the subject, in Sloka 2 of Stanza 1, Book of Dzyan, to wit: “ . . . WHERE WAS SILENCE? WHERE WERE THE EARS TO SENSE IT? NO! THERE WAS NEITHER SILENCE, NOR SOUND (a). NAUGHT SAVE CEASELESS, ETERNAL BREATH (Motion) WHICH KNOWS ITSELF NOT (b).”

A further substantiation of the said contention was articulated by HPB in Volume I, Secret Doctrine, thus:

(a) The idea that things can cease to exist and still BE, is a fundamental one in Eastern psychology. Under this apparent contradiction in terms, there rests a fact of Nature to realise which in the mind, rather than to argue about words, is the important thing. A familiar instance of a similar paradox is afforded by chemical combination. The question whether Hydrogen and Oxygen cease to exist, when they combine to form water, is still a moot one, some arguing that since they are found again when the water is decomposed they must be there all the while; others contending that as they actually turn into something totally different they must cease to exist as themselves for the time being; but neither side is able to form the faintest conception of the real condition of a thing, which has become something else and yet has not ceased to be itself. Existence as water may be said to be, for Oxygen and Hydrogen, a state of Non-being which is “more real being” than their existence as gases; and it may faintly symbolise the condition of the Universe when it goes to sleep, or ceases to be, during the “Nights of Brahmâ”—to awaken or reappear again, when the dawn of the new Manvantara recalls it to what we call existence.

(b) The “Breath” of the One Existence is used in its application only to the spiritual aspect of Cosmogony by Archaic esotericism; otherwise, it is replaced by its equivalent in the material plane—Motion. The One Eternal Element, or element-containing Vehicle, is Space, dimensionless in every sense; co-existent with which are—endless duration, primordial (hence indestructible) matter, and motion—absolute “perpetual motion” which is the “breath” of the “One” Element. This breath, as seen, can never cease, not even during the Pralayic eternities. (See “Chaos, Theos, Kosmos,” in Part II.)
But the “Breath of the One Existence” does not, all the same, apply to the One Causeless Cause or the “All Be-ness” (in contradistinction to All-Being, which is Brahmâ, or the Universe). Brahmâ (or Hari) the four-faced god who, after lifting the Earth out of the waters, “accomplished the Creation,” is held to be only the instrumental, and not, as clearly implied, the ideal Cause. No Orientalist, so far, seems to have thoroughly comprehended the real sense of the verses in the Purâna, that treat of “creation.”
Therein Brahmâ is the cause of the potencies that are to be generated subsequently for the work of “creation.” When a translator says, “And from him proceed the potencies to be created, after they had become the real cause”: “and from IT proceed the potencies that will create as they become the real cause” (on the material plane) would perhaps be more correct? Save that one (causeless) ideal cause there is no other to which the universe can be referred. “Worthiest of ascetics! through its potency—i.e., through the potency of that cause—every created thing comes by its inherent or proper nature.” If, in the Vedanta and Nyaya, nimitta is the efficient cause, as contrasted with upadána, the material cause, (and in the Sankhya, pradhâna implies the functions of both); in the Esoteric philosophy, which reconciles all these systems, and the nearest exponent of which is the Vedanta as expounded by the Advaita Vedantists, none but the upadána can be speculated upon; that which is in the minds of the Vaishnavas (the Vasishta-dvaita) as the ideal in contradistinction to the real—or Parabrahm and Isvara—can find no room in published speculations, since that ideal even is a misnomer, when applied to that of which no human reason, even that of an adept, can conceive.
To know itself or oneself, necessitates consciousness and perception (both limited faculties in relation to any subject except Parabrahm), to be cognized. Hence the “Eternal Breath which knows itself not.” Infinity cannot comprehend Finiteness. The Boundless can have no relation to the bounded and the conditioned. In the occult teachings, the Unknown and the Unknowable MOVER, or the Self-Existing, is the absolute divine Essence. And thus being Absolute Consciousness, and Absolute Motion—to the limited senses of those who describe this indescribable—it is unconsciousness and immoveableness. Concrete consciousness cannot be predicated of abstract Consciousness, any more than the quality wet can be predicated of water—wetness being its own attribute and the cause of the wet quality in other things. Consciousness implies limitations and qualifications; something to be conscious of, and someone to be conscious of it. But Absolute Consciousness contains the cognizer, the thing cognized and the cognition, all three in itself and all three one. No man is conscious of more than that portion of his knowledge that happens to have been recalled to his mind at any particular time, yet such is the poverty of language that we have no term to distinguish the knowledge not actively thought of, from knowledge we are unable to recall to memory. To forget is synonymous with not to remember. How much greater must be the difficulty of finding terms to describe, and to distinguish between, abstract metaphysical facts or differences. It must not be forgotten, also, that we give names to things according to the appearances they assume for ourselves. We call absolute consciousness “unconsciousness,” because it seems to us that it must necessarily be so, just as we call the Absolute, “Darkness,” because to our finite understanding it appears quite impenetrable, yet we recognize fully that our perception of such things does not do them justice. We involuntarily distinguish in our minds, for instance, between unconscious absolute consciousness, and unconsciousness, by secretly endowing the former with some indefinite quality that corresponds, on a higher plane than our thoughts can reach, with what we know as consciousness in ourselves. But this is not any kind of consciousness that we can manage to distinguish from what appears to us as unconsciousness.

DIFFERENTIATION OF CONSCIOUS & UNCONSCIOUS BEING January 17, 2012

DIFFERENTIATION OF CONSCIOUS & UNCONSCIOUS BEING

Erle Frayne D. Argonza

What is the difference between conscious and unconscious being or existence? What process did it take to move from unconscious to conscious being? What divine beings were involved that mediated the evolution of conscious being?

In answer to the guide question, the Perfected Ones declared in Sloka 1 of Stanza 2, Book of Dzyan, the following cogitation: “WHERE WERE THE BUILDERS, THE LUMINOUS SONS OF MANVANTARIC DAWN (a)? . . . . IN THE UNKNOWN DARKNESS IN THEIR AH-HI (Chohanic, Dhyani-Buddhic) PARANISHPANNA, THE PRODUCERS OF FORM (rupa) FROM NO-FORM (arupa), THE ROOT OF THE WORLD—THE DEVAMATRI* AND SVÂBHÂVAT, RESTED IN THE BLISS OF NON-BEING (b).”

In that axiomatic statement, the Builders were outrightly revealed. The Builders are the collective creators of the Universe, and the term alone connotes ‘architects’ (creatives progenitor), of the ‘fathers’ of original ‘7 worlds’ or 7 regions of Kosmos, and more.

In substantiation of the sloka, HPBlavatsky (with the guidance of Mahatmas who were always beside her to reveal recondite truths), articulated in Volume I, Secret Doctrine, the following:

(a) The “Builders,” the “Sons of Manvantaric Dawn,” are the real creators of the Universe; and in this doctrine, which deals only with our Planetary System, they, as the architects of the latter, are also called the “Watchers” of the Seven Spheres, which exoterically are the Seven planets, and esoterically the seven earths or spheres (planets) of our chain also. The opening sentence of Stanza I., when mentioning “Seven Eternities,” is made to apply both to the Maha-Kalpa or “the (great) Age of Brahmâ,” as well as to the Solar pralaya and subsequent resurrection of our Planetary System on a higher plane. There are many kinds of pralaya (dissolution of a thing visible), as will be shown elsewhere.

(b) Paranishpanna, remember, is the summum bonum, the Absolute, hence the same as Paranirvana. Besides being the final state it is that condition of subjectivity which has no relation to anything but the one absolute truth (Para-mârthasatya) on its plane. It is that state which leads one to appreciate correctly the full meaning of Non-Being, which, as explained, is absolute Being. Sooner or later, all that now seemingly exists, will be in reality and actually in the state of Paranishpanna. But there is a great difference between conscious and unconscious “being.” The condition of Paranishpanna, without Paramârtha, the Self-analysing consciousness (Svasamvedana), is no bliss, but simply extinction (for Seven Eternities). Thus, an iron ball placed under the scorching rays of the sun will get heated through, but will not feel or appreciate the warmth, while a man will. It is only “with a mind clear and undarkened by personality, and an assimilation of the merit of manifold existences devoted to being in its collectivity (the whole living and sentient Universe),” that one gets rid of personal existence, merging into, becoming one with, the Absolute,* and continuing in full possession of Paramârtha.

DANGMA: EYE OF PURIFIED SOUL January 14, 2012

DANGMA: EYE OF PURIFIED SOUL

Erle Frayne D. Argonza

When an Aspirant becomes purified, his/her higher faculties would consequently open, as the former veils that block access to the higher spheres and the higher mind are dropped off.

So was it contended by the Perfected Ones, in Sloka 8 of Stanza 1, Book of Dzyan, the following: “ALONE, THE ONE FORM OF EXISTENCE STRETCHED BOUNDLESS, INFINITE, CAUSELESS, IN DREAMLESS SLEEP (a); AND LIFE PULSATED UNCONSCIOUS IN UNIVERSAL SPACE, THROUGHOUT THAT ALL-PRESENCE WHICH IS SENSED BY THE “OPENED EYE”* OF THE DANGMA (b).’

The explication of the Mahatmas of the Brotherhood, working through the chela HPB, is seen in the excerpt on the subject culled from Volume I, Secret Doctrine, to note:

(a) The tendency of modern thought is to recur to the archaic idea of a homogeneous basis for apparently widely different things—heterogeneity developed from homogeneity. Biologists are now searching for their homogeneous protoplasm and chemists for their protyle, while science is looking for the force of which electricity, magnetism, heat, and so forth, are the differentiations. The Secret Doctrine carries this idea into the region of metaphysics and postulates a “One Form of Existence” as the basis and source of all things. But perhaps the phrase, the “One Form of Existence,” is not altogether correct. The Sanskrit word is Prabhavapyaya, “the place, or rather plane, whence emerges the origination, and into which is the resolution of all things,” says a commentator. It is not the “Mother of the World,” as translated by Wilson (see Book I., Vishnu Purana); for Jagad Yoni (as shown by FitzEdward Hall) is scarcely so much “the Mother of the World” or “the Womb of the World” as the “Material Cause of the Universe.” The Purânic Commentators explain it by Karana—“Cause”—but the Esoteric philosophy, by the ideal spirit of that cause. It is, in its secondary stage, the Svâbhâvat of the Buddhist philosopher, the eternal cause and effect, omnipresent yet abstract, the self-existent plastic Essence and the root of all things, viewed in the same dual light as the Vedantin views his Parabrahm and Mulaprakriti, the one under two aspects. It seems indeed extraordinary to find great scholars speculating on the possibility of the Vedanta, and the Uttara-Mimansa especially, having been “evoked by the teachings of the Buddhists,”whereas, it is on the contrary Buddhism (of Gautama, the Buddha) that was “evoked” and entirely upreared on the tenets of the Secret Doctrine, of which a partial sketch is here attempted, and on which, also, the Upanishads are made to rest.* The above, according to the teachings of Sri Sankarâchârya,† is undeniable.

(b)Dreamless sleep is one of the seven states of consciousness known in Oriental esotericism. In each of these states a different portion of the mind comes into action; or as a Vedantin would express it, the individual is conscious in a different plane of his being. The term “dreamless sleep,” in this case is applied allegorically to the Universe to express a condition somewhat analogous to that state of consciousness in man, which, not being remembered in a waking state, seems a blank, just as the sleep of the mesmerised subject seems to him an unconscious blank when he returns to his normal condition, although he has been talking and acting as a conscious individual would.

The ‘dreamless sleep’, as far as we habitués of the dense sphere is concerned, translates to the meditative state. Such a state, which in psychology goes by the category of ‘states of consciousness beyond the normal’ or ‘paranormal’, is the normal state of awareness of the Dangma.

Note that an Aspirant must focus the eyes on ‘trikuti’ alone (as a Radha Soami declared), while learning to perfect meditation through practice. Such practices are part of the overall purification works, constitutive of the overall goal of self-realization or nirvana. In no way should an Aspirant aspire to open the 3rd Eye as the goal, for the untimely opening of such astral faculties is immaterial to the purification in a state of nirvana or the bliss of a Self-realized one.

As the Aspirant or chela reaches the threshold of self-realization, the mystical faculties (4th plane faculties) will activate, enabling the chela to intuit on higher truths, gain access to the Akashic records, and broaden the powers to engage in creatives (power of genius).

Upon the purification of the Aspirant, the perceptual access to higher truths, inclusive of observing the higher planes or dimensions, take place. Hundreds of energy veils drop off, thus clearing the higher faculties for observing even the spiritual planes, depending on the level of spiritual awareness achieved.

EXISTENCE, BEING AND NON-BEING January 11, 2012

EXISTENCE, BEING AND NON-BEING

Erle Frayne D. Argonza

There is nary a metaphysical question that the Perfected Ones didn’t touch on, thus rendering their thoughts far superior to those done by materialist Western philosophers. The Perfected Ones thus cogitated, concerning the subject of being and existence, in Sloka 7 of Stanza 1, Book of Dzyan, to note: “THE CAUSES OF EXISTENCE HAD BEEN DONE AWAY WITH (a); THE VISIBLE THAT WAS, AND THE INVISIBLE THAT IS, RESTED IN ETERNAL NON-BEING, THE ONE BEING (b).”

In Volume I, Secret Doctrine, HPB discoursed on the sloka, as follows:

(a) “The Causes of Existence” mean not only the physical causes known to science, but the metaphysical causes, the chief of which is the desire to exist, an outcome of Nidana and Maya. This desire for a sentient life shows itself in everything, from an atom to a sun, and is a reflection of the Divine Thought propelled into objective existence, into a law that the Universe should exist. According to esoteric teaching, the real cause of that supposed desire, and of all existence, remains for ever hidden, and its first emanations are the most complete abstractions mind can conceive. These abstractions must of necessity be postulated as the cause of the material Universe which presents itself to the senses and intellect; and they underlie the secondary and subordinate powers of Nature, which, anthropomorphized, have been worshipped as God and gods by the common herd of every age. It is impossible to conceive anything without a cause; the attempt to do so makes the mind a blank. This is virtually the condition to which the mind must come at last when we try to trace back the chain of causes and effects, but both science and religion jump to this condition of blankness much more quickly than is necessary; for they ignore the metaphysical abstractions which are the only conceivable cause of physical concretions. These abstractions become more and more concrete as they approach our plane of existence, until finally they phenomenalise in the form of the material Universe, by a process of conversion of metaphysics into physics, analogous to that by which steam can be condensed into water, and the water frozen into ice.

(b) The idea of Eternal Non-Being, which is the One Being, will appear a paradox to anyone who does not remember that we limit our ideas of being to our present consciousness of existence; making it a specific, instead of a generic term. An unborn infant, could it think in our acceptation of that term, would necessarily limit its conception of being, in a similar manner, to the intra-uterine life which alone it knows; and were it to endeavour to express to its consciousness the idea of life after birth (death to it), it would, in the absence of data to go upon, and of faculties to comprehend such data, probably express that life as ““Non-Being which is Real Being.” In our case the One Being is the noumenon of all the noumena which we know must underlie phenomena, and give them whatever shadow of reality they possess, but which we have not the senses or the intellect to cognize at present. The impalpable atoms of gold scattered through the substance of a ton of auriferous quartz may be imperceptible to the naked eye of the miner, yet he knows that they are not only present there but that they alone give his quartz any appreciable value; and this relation of the gold to the quartz may faintly shadow forth that of the noumenon to the phenomenon. But the miner knows what the gold will look like when extracted from the quartz, whereas the common mortal can form no conception of the reality of things separated from the Maya which veils them, and in which they are hidden. Alone the Initiate, rich with the lore acquired by numberless generations of his predecessors, directs the “Eye of Dangma” toward the essence of things in which no Maya can have any influence. It is here that the teachings of esoteric philosophy in relation to the Nidanas and the Four Truths become of the greatest importance; but they are secret.

As a budding scientist and philosopher, I had the opportunity to read through the works of modern Western thinkers. That begins with the empiricists, then with the French phisosophes, then the German Enlightenment thinkers, and onward to the positivists, hermeneutes, Marxists, phenomenologists,… up through the followers of Nietsche, the post-modernists, who it seems celebrate Chaos and the Primal.

After all the peregrinations and discourses done by the Western thinkers, very few of them have come closest to unraveling the layers of reality. I do give credit where it is due, so I recognize the contributions of the said thinkers—the last reads of mine being those of the postmodernists Foucault, Derrida, Guattari, Deleuze, Lyotard, Laing, Lacan, Kristeva, Baudrillard, Spivak—to the advancement of contemporary thought. Yet putting their works together hardly came closest to representing and explicating reality as it is, and the classic questions of being and existence, a metaphysical feat that belonged more to the philosopher-Teachers of the East.

The noumenon of all noumena, the crux of all causes, was best articulated by the Perfected Ones. And their peregrinations haven’t ended yet. They only revealed to us those which we can chew and digest, as Terrans’ finite minds cannot comprehend the totality of cosmic evolution, even of questions of being and existence, save for those who have attained the state of Perfected Ones.

Two classical German thinkers—Kant and Hegel—I truly had great admiration for. Kant was able to unravel the truth concerning the structure of reality as noumenon and phenomena, while Hegel was able to intuit on the continuous flux of progression. Let me add Goethe too to that list of German thinkers, who in poetic form showed to us the possibility of a quantum mutation in awareness from the gross level to that of a ‘higher mind’, though the process is fraught with risks.

But after contrasting them to the Mahatmas of the East, and authenticating their contentions gradually through higher perceptions enabled by kriya-raj meditation, I could only surmise at how limited are the mindsets and perspectives of the Western thinkers. The meta-discourse on the way to liberation and comprehension of the layers of reality is with the great Teachers, Perfected Ones, Dhyan Chohans, whose own tireless mentoring and love made possible the ascension of the 144,000 rishis of today.
