Most of the blog entries were synthesized from various works. The original intent is to clarify for myself the information that had come. There was a need to ensure the integrity of the information received by cross checking them with others. With Theosophy and Ageless Wisdom as the basic framework, the “new information” must be in harmony. It must also resonate with a deeper reality within. I am sharing this synthesis with the view that it also assists the reader in clarifying and discerning for him/herself the truth, relative as it may seem.

The root doctrine of Ageless Wisdom is also the basis of the “esoteric (hidden) traditions” of most major world religions:
1. Cabbala of Judaism
2. Ancient Gnosticism, Essenes and Nazarene, and the Medieval Rosicrucian and Masonry in Christianity
3. What HP Blavatsky called “Esoteric Buddhism”
4. Sufism in Islam
5. Vedanta, Upanishads and Yoga of Hinduism

In the late 19th century, Helena P. Blavatsky (1831-1891)reintroduced the Ageless Wisdom through various works, such as “The Secret Doctrine” and “Isis Unveiled.” She called it "Theosophy;" she also established the Theosophical Society, under the guidance of Ascended Masters known to the world as Masters Morya, Kuthumi and Djwal Khul (who purportedly appeared to the world as the Three Magi during the birth of Jesus).

Blavatsky claimed her main source as an ancient book called "The Book of Dzyan" (from the Sanskrit Dhayana, meaning "mystic meditation"). In c. 400 BC, the book found its way as the Chinese "C'han Philosophy" and the Japanese "Zen," both of which took root from Buddhism.

Blavatsky also wrote "The Voice of the Silence," derived from "The Book of the Golden Precepts," which she claimed had the same origin as the "Book of Dzyan." Many of the Golden Precepts can be read in the Bhagavad Gita. Another book, "Light on the Path," written by Mabel Collins, was also derived from this source. A third book, "At the Feet of the Master," written by J. Krisnamurti (at 15 years old) completes a trilogy, considered as the basic tenets of “Theosophy.”

After Blavatsky died, the society underwent changes and spawned several other groups, such as the Esoteric Order of the Golden Dawn (MacGregor Mathers), Fraternity of the Inner Light (Dion Fortune), the “new” Rosicrucians and “Masonry,” the Anthroposophical Society (Rudolf Steiner) and the World Order of the Star (J. Khrishnamurti).

Alice A. Bailey, formerly an associate of Theosophical Society, also spun off with her Lucis Trust. She authored 24 books on esoteric philosophy, guided by Master Djwal Khul (DK) for 30 years (1919-1949) on a more advanced presentation of the Ageless Wisdom. She founded the Arcane School, training aspiring world servers in esoteric work.

After Bailey, several "guided" authors advanced the Ageless Wisdom. The information from these authors was the basis for the Ageless Wisdom Updates.

Among the major sources for this synthesis are the writings of/from H.P. Blavatsky, C.D. Leadbeater and Douglas Baker of the Theosophical Society; Alice A. Bailey of the Lucis Trust; Janet MacClure of the Tibetan Foundation; Hilary Hargreaves and Mark Brittain of the School of Inner Light; Genesis 2012; Kryon, through Carroll Lee; and the Pleiadians, through Barbara Marciniak & Amorah Quan Yin. The sources were appropriately labeled.

This synthesis is divided (initially) into 5 parts:
Part I - The Logos and Creation (Planes, Dimensions, and Human Evolution)
Part II - The 12 Rays and Spiritual Hierarchy
Part III - Cosmic Humans/Groups & Elohims, Archangels and Secret Rays
Part IV - Humans: Chakras (Centers), DNA, Electromagnetic Forces, Light Bodies, Layers of Consciousness
Part V - Updates and further elaboration of the 4 Parts.
-- Earth, DNA and Humanity (3 Part Series)
-- Ageless Wisdom and the Book of Revelation (3 Part Series)
-- Esoteric Astrology (3 Part Series)
-- Global Calamities and Human Evolution (3 Part Series)

The presentations (entries) are from newest to oldest. That is, Part I is the earliest and thus the oldest entry.

Discernment is very important when dealing with Ageless Wisdom. Mastership, from the viewpoint of the Master DK, is about "mastery of oneself" and not about "having pupils." (DK's Introduction in Violet Starre's "The Diamond Light,"2000)

Dion Fortune (in "The Esoteric Orders and Their Works," p. 83) explained: “upon the mundane plane, it is impossible to escape from the limitations of the human personalities. A great occultist will make a great occult school, but upon his death the mantle may fall upon unworthy shoulders and the glory be departed or turned to corruption.” Fortune added: some (mystery schools) have flourished unchecked, feared and revered by the people they guided, sometimes fallen into evil ways as the degenerated voodoo schools. Some retained a noble tradition as in certain Indian and Chinese schools and monastic orders, accepted as part of racial life.

In the words of Khrisnamurti (“The First and Last Freedom”): “It is through self-knowledge, not through belief in somebody else’s symbols, that a man comes to the eternal reality, in which he is being grounded...Our system of upbringing is based upon what to think, not how to think.”

In the words of the Master DK, the Tibetan (Introduction of AABailey Books, 1935) who inspired this synthesis: “the books that I have written are sent out with no claim for their acceptance. They may or may not be correct, true and useful…If the teaching conveyed calls forth a response from the illumined mind of the seeker in the world, and bring a flashing forth of his intuition, then let that teaching be accepted. But not otherwise.”

From Master Kuthumi (through Michelle Eloff): “A liberated spirit never needs to hold onto anything because every moment provides what is needed, because the moment is perfect… your daily purpose makes up for your greater purpose on Earth. Do not waste time searching for the grand purpose of your life. Be present and embrace the purpose of the moment. Every moment has a purpose, which is why you are in it.”

Part IV - A: Nadis (Flows), 12 Chakras (Centers) & Endocrine Glands

The Nadis - Pinglala, Ida and Sushuma

The word nadi comes from the Sanskrit root nad meaning "channel", "stream", or "flow."

Nadis are thought to carry a life force energy known as prana in Sanskrit, or qi in Chinese-based systems. In particular prana (active) is supposed to circulate inside Pingala, while apana (passive) is supposed to circulate inside Ida. Inside Sushumna is supposed to circulate kundalini when awakened.[3]

The nadis is symbolized in the cadeceus, which became the symbol of the medical profession. The three main channels (nadis)- Ida, Pingala and Shushumna (sympathetic, parasympathetic, and central nervous system) - run along the spinal column from the root center in a curved path & cross one another several times.

At the intersection points are strong energy centers called chakras. The two nadis are believed to be stimulated through different practices, including Pranayama, which involves alternate breathing through left and right nostrils, which would alternately stimulate respectively the left and right sides of the brain.

The Ida and Pingala nadis are often seen as referring to the two hemispheres of the brain. Pingala is the extroverted (Active), solar nadi, and corresponds to the right hand side of the body and the left hand side of the brain. Ida is the introverted, lunar nadi, and corresponds to the left hand side of the body and the right hand side of the brain (crossing occurs in the optical chiasma). These nadis are also said to have an extrasensory function, playing a part in empathic and instinctive responses. ( \

The 7 Major Chakras

Chakras are the sacred centers within that carry us on our journey toward greater awareness and aliveness. As the architecture of the soul, they provide an important map for our wholeness and transformation, both personally and globally. As an ancient spiritual system, they show the path to enlightenment and integration. Traditionally, 7 major chakra centers are discussed in various books.

Root (Muladhara) – Survival. It stores our core identity. It opens to oneself and is the foundation of core beliefs; alter-ego – Brow to Crown; access potentials; New Age Ray link to higher rays; last to be aroused
Sacral (Svadisthana) - Creativity and Sexuality. It opens the records of beliefs and experiences; controls sex life. It is transmuted to throat center.
Solar Plexus (Manipura)Perceptual. Gut Feel, which intuit our way through life; motivates the heart; balances and harmonizes the emotional and mental bodies. It pertains to perseverence and the  deva evolution. Involves the transmutation to the heart center.
Heart (Anahata) - Center of compassion & link to all; flow of compassion goes beyond judgment (the trap)
Throat (Visshuddha) – Speech,  through which we speak our truth
Brow (Ajna) – Third Eye. Ability to see beyond the 3rd Dimension; motivates integration; service, forgiveness. It stimulates intuition, hearing and seeing. It involves the shift from the Sacral to Crown center.
Crown (Sahasrara) – Knowing. When opened, connects and circulates spiritual energies.  Once stimulated, the pineal, pituitary and hyphothalamus actively link you up.

The Endocrine System

The Chakras are linked to specific Endocrine Glands in the physical body; the glands are the physical manifestations of the chakras. The Endocrine glands act as transducer of energy that changes energy from one form to another (Cayce). They operate to change psychic and mental energy patterns into physical patterns within the body and vice-versa. The Table shows the correspondents with the first 7 chakras.

1.  Pineal & Hypo-thalamus Glands (Crown)
Produces melatonin which regulates sleep and waking up. Light stimulation of the Pineal affects the Leyden’s production of sex hormones. Connects the inner vision of imagery with the creative principle. The Hypothalamus regulates body temperature and water. It is the gatekeeper between the physical body and the outer chakras. When stimulated, it leads into a new domain chemically induced without taking anything. (Note: some say that the pineal and pituitary should be exchanged in their relationship to the Crown and Brow chakras. Leadbeater associated the Anja with the pineal)
2. The Pituitary (Brow or Ajna Center)
Like the Pineal, is basically dormant (Marciniak). In Cayce, the Pituitary is the 7th center. Its hormones communicate to the rest of the glands and connect to the central nervous system via the Hypothalamus. The Thalamus has a key role in the physical basis of consciousness. Ajna's key issues involve balancing the higher & lower selves and trusting inner guidance; the inner aspect relates to intuition; mentally, with visual consciousness; emotionally, with clarity on an intuitive level.
3. Thyroid (Throat)
Relates to communication and growth through expression. The thyroid produces the thyroid hormone for growth and maturation. Physically, the center governs communication, emotionally it governs independence, mentally it governs fluent thought, and spiritually, it governs a sense of security
4. Thymus (Heart Center or Anahata)
Part of the immune system; the T cells produced fend off disease; may be affected by stress. Sends signals for rejuvination. The gatekeeper that regulates what comes from above and from below the neck. It shinks the older one gets. It is not continuously giving signals of its idealized blueprint because it is not getting the messages from the temples of the head; they were severed from the full strand of DNA. When the body & mind is ready (for life expansion), the thymus returns to vitality. Key issues involve complex emotions, compassion, tenderness, unconditional love, equilibrium, rejection and well-being; physically, circulation; emotionally, unconditional love for self & others; mentally, passion; and spiritually, devotion.
5 Pancreas Adrenals; “Guts”  (Solar Plexus or Manipura)
Seat of power in the body. Through the feeling center (inner wisdom), you feel your way through events that may make no sense logically. (in Cayce, the Adrenals activate mediumship; serves as broadcaster, amplifying the exchange of signals among the other glands; center for “flight or fight”). The Solar Plexus is believed to correspond to the Islets of Langerhans, cells in the pancreas, and the outer adrenal glands and adrenal cortex. They play a valuable role in digestion. Key issues governed by Manipura are of personal power, fear, anxiety, opinion-formation, introversion, and transition from simple or base emotions to complex; mentally, personal power; emotionally, expansiveness; and spiritually, all matters of growth.
6. The Cells of Leydig (Polarity or Sacral): The “seat of the soul.”
The soul’s companion is the subconscious mind. These two abide in the autonomic nervous system and directly affect the glands and the hormones. Their primary points of contact are the 2nd and 6th chakras. The Sacral (Svadisthana) corresponds to the testes or the ovaries that produce the various sex hormones involved in the reproductive cycle. It is also considered to be related to, more generally, the genitourinary system and the adrenals. The key issues involving Svadisthana are relationships, violence, addictions, basic emotional needs, and pleasure. Physically, Svadisthana governs reproduction, mentally it governs creativity, emotionally it governs joy, and spiritually it governs enthusiasm.
7. Gonads- Ovaries and Testes (Root)
 Descent from heaven into matter in this world, with outer influences taking hold and possesing us. This chakra is where the 3 channels are merged, then separate and begin their upward movement. Inside of this chakra is wrapped up the  kundalini three times around a black lingam. Although no endocrine organ is placed here, it is said to relate to the gonads. There is a muscle located in this region that controls ejaculation in the sexual act of the human male.

The Higher 8-12 Chackras

With the Harmonic Convergence in August 1987, the opening of the higher centers (8-12th) outside the body were made available, linking the human being to the centers of the Earth, the Solar System and the Galactic Core . The Higher Centers are also called Jacob's Ladder.

The 8-12 centers are presented in the Table. The 12 chakras, when developed, are spinning centers of information or light encoded filaments (etheric discs). (From Barbara Marciniak - Pleiadians)

The Soul Star or Alta Major Chakra – Located 12 inches or more above the body, this chackra relates to the invisible realm outside the body. It cleanses and heals the four lower bodies and brings clarity to daily experience. It stimulates the ajna opening and cleanses the subconscious. The 8th chakra is the last of the "human" chakras which hold us prisoner in this manifest world. Clearing patterns held in this chakra will free our being and allow the development and understanding of our true spiritual identity.
Earth Chackra – Located within a few feet above the head. (After nine helixes are formed) it will move out of the atmosphere. It may go as far as the moon, linking you as a steward and watcher of earth. It activates the thymus and integrates the heart, thymus, and throat into the Solar Power Center. It also aids in soul merge, the 3rd initiation, and contact with our Christed (body of light).
Solar Chakra - Onced aligned and plugged in, will be aligned to solar system. It assist in building our light body and align with the chakras below our feet.
Galactic Chakra - Chakra hooked up from the palm and is plugged into the “Galactic system.” It provides the link and information to our local stellar influence. It is the rainbow bridge to New Age, the higher dimensions, the I Am and Mother Earth. It balances humanity.
Univeral Chackra - Hooked up from the palm to the “Center of Universe,” outside Galaxy (the rest of the universe as pictured); Illumination; God source; contain all the Rays; help integrate all qualities; color of higher beings. The opening began early 1990s.

The 12 centers are presented in the chart, along with a 13th and 14th Chackra and with the counterparts of the 7 Chakras in the body (discussed in another entry, The New Energy {Cosmic} Centers.)
