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.”

Earth, DNA and Humanity Part 2 - DNA and Intelligence

DNA and Inner Intelligence
The quantum (from the Latin, “how much”) describes the smallest unit of particle, like a photon is a quantum of light, because it cannot be further split into finer particles. It manifests when electrons collide with other electrons (as in electricity). From the collision, jumps the photon, which has no mass, coming from an unknown realm, not covered by the space-time dimension of Einstein.

The discovery of the quantum realm opened a way to see down deeper into the self. Sub-atomic levels are separated by huge gaps, making every atom more than 99.99 percent empty space. Everything solid, including the body is proportionately as void as inter-galactic space. Perhaps, quantum events are not “out there” in space, but “in here” as well. Quantum discoveries enable humans to go into atoms and remember the early universe itself. Around 15 billion years ago, light and heat came into being. Yet, every human being strikes the spark again, lighting the fire that kindles life.

A deeper intelligence must be guiding nature such that the non-physical manifests in the physical. The human being may be a deeper intelligence, i.e., soul, embodied in the physical world and expressed through the DNA code. All mental characteristics and faculties are nonphysical, but are real, such as sensation of light and colors, of sound and music; feelings and emotions; will and thought; guilt and remorse. The nerve cells seem to be the link that connects the physical brain with the world of consciousness.

In many ways, all the billions of bits of DNA in a body act like one big DNA molecule. From conception to the ninth month, all DNA in an unborn child acts as one. The DNA is manipulating molecules into rhythm or vibrations that are decoded in time. These signals - pure, abstract, vibrations - transmitted by the DNA are decoded into light, texture, smell, sound, etc. The brain turns the signals into real events in time and space. If genes can regulate time, then it could also regulate space. But time is riding on a molecule. The signals for time, space, motion, etc., come from the level of silent intelligence. The miracle of DNA is that it can turn so many totally abstract messages into life itself

British physicist David Bohm supposed that there is an invisible field that holds all of reality together, a field that possesses the property of knowing what is happening everywhere at once. This is based on the Bell’s theorem (after the author, the Irish physicist John Bell), which holds that the reality of the universe must be non-local, that is, all objects and events in the cosmos are inter-connected with one another and respond to one another’s change of state.
                The visible universe itself is now believed to be but a minuscule of the whole manifestation, the residue of a much larger reality that collapsed somewhere before time began, reducing the original (possibly 12) dimensions to four (the space-time dimension of Einstein). Also, it appears that at the moment of creation, the universe was filled with a billion times more energy that are now observed with radio-telescopes; the remainder was reabsorbed into the same hidden field where the other dimensions went.
The DNA code somehow exists both in the physical and abstract levels. It is a pattern that the unfolding entity will follow into the future, complete with the physical, emotional and mental make-up. Somehow, the pattern follows a grand design not only for the unfolding entity, but also for all life on earth, a consciousness translated by scientists in terms of physical or natural laws. Somehow, the grand design is true for the solar system, the galaxies, and the universe.

Free Will and Determinism

What about free will?  The organic theory viewpoint maintains that the ability to make a decision – to act and have emotional responses, is a product of the basic framework of the brain, inherited from parents as well resulting from the interaction with the environment. But then the DNA may have been the product of something primordial, a consciousness that decided to manifest in the fertilized egg, with its unique DNA code. The physical component of the DNA may have come as a result of the union of the parents; but its organizing field (the source) may have guided the union in the first place.

Is it possible that the human potential from conception until birth is greater than what is actualized in living in the world? According to Wilson Colin, the powers of the mind are not waiting to be evolved; they are already evolved and are simply waiting for humans to achieve a level at which they can be used. (Wilson Collins, Mysteries, p.495)

                Nature is like a radio band. When one pays attention to an isolated object – a rock, a star, a galaxy – one selects one channel on the band, with the rest obviously being excluded for that level of consciousness. It may be that other levels of consciousness receives more bands, or more than one band at a time. Right now, physicists estimate that the senses choose less than one-billionth of the energy waves and particles that surround the person. Humans live in an “energy soup” incredibly larger than the observable world.

Like the caterpillar is to a butterfly, the human being goes through a transformation process. However, unlike the butterfly, the transformation is obviously not in the physical realm, but in levels of consciousness, i.e., levels of mind and heart. This is reflected in differences among humans in terms of mental absorptive capacities and degrees of capacities for loving. Evolution of mind rests in consciously connecting to the primal energy field, i.e., in being at one with the source in a non-physical world.
