The Mount of Transfiguration – The Rule 1 Study Group – Djwhal Khul – 6th September 2018.
“Welcome Brothers and Sisters of the Way! It is time to open oneself more fully now to the understanding of where you are in this Present Moment. The Now for each of you reading this shall be the beginning of a new adventure, where I could only raise myself to the Challenge of assisting you in every way I could. For here lies another door that you shall stand before wondering the many thoughts that each one will give you a reason why you cannot pass through this aperture into the next Dimensional Level of Consciousness. In My Book ‘The Light of the Soul’ I said this:
“John, the Beloved Disciple, has said that “we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is” and the Revelation of the Soul to man in physical plane incarnation works ever the great Transformation. Christ Himself has said that “Greater works than I do shall ye do,” holding out to us the promise of the “Kingdom, the Power and the Glory” provided our aspiration and endurance suffice to carry us along the thorny way of the Cross and enable us to tread that path which “leads uphill all the way” to the summit of the Mount of Transfiguration.
“How is this Great Change brought about? How does man or woman, the victim of his desires and lower nature become man or woman, the victor, triumph over the world, the flesh over all inequities? It is brought about when the physical brain of the incarnated man and woman becomes aware of the self, the soul, and this conscious awareness only becomes possible when the True Self can “reflect itself in the mind stuff.” The Soul is inherently freed from objects and stands ever in the State of Isolated Unity. Man and woman, however, in incarnation has to arrive, in their physical brain consciousness, at a realization of these two states of being; they have consciously to free themselves from all objects of desire and stand as a Unified Whole, detached and liberated from all veils, from all forms in the three worlds. When the State of Conscious Being, as known by the Spiritual man or woman, becomes also the condition of awareness of the man or woman in physical incarnation, then the Goal has been reached. The man or woman is no longer what their physical body makes them, when identified with it, the victim of the world. They walk free, with Shining face and the Light of His/Her Countenance is shed abroad upon all they meet. No longer do their desires swing the flesh into activity, and no longer does their astral body subjugate them and overcome him or her.
“Through dispassion and the balancing of the pairs of opposites he/she has freed him/herself from the moods, feelings, longings, desires, and emotional reactions which characterise the life of the average man and woman and has arrived at the Point of Peace. The tempter of pride, the personification of the misused mental nature and the distorted perceptions of the mind, are overcome and he or she stands liberated from the three worlds. The Nature of the Soul, the qualities and activities inherent in the Love Nature of the Son and Daughter of God, and the Wisdom which demonstrates when Love and Activity (the second and third aspects) are brought together, characterise his/her life on earth, and he/she can say as did the Christ, “It is finished.”
“Dear Brothers and Sisters of the Grace of God, I bring this to your attention this day because here at the very time the Cosmos is supporting you with the Grace of Transformation and Illumination whereby it has become the custom here for these New Opportunities for Study in greater awareness to provide you with the Triggers and Codes to help you make the shifts required to not only open new doorways for you to stand before, but to offer you the very encouragement to Illumine the past that will allow you the Clarity and Transparency to pass over the Thresholds and through the Doors into Higher Consciousness.
“The Study of the 14 Rules for Group Initiation beginning with Rule 1, shall provide the Foundational Platforms for you to ‘reflect upon the old mind stuff’, that has kept you tethered to the pain and suffering of your lives. To free the Soul you have no choice, but to sooner or later reflect and move beyond the solitary confinement of the human incarnational life. The 14 Rules, beginning with Rule 1 shall help you along this Path of Illumination.
“The inherent nature of the lives which constitute these active versatile human forms has hitherto proved too strong for the soul (the Christ within, as the Christian puts it) and the soul-powers have been prevented full expression. The instinctual powers of the “animal soul,” or the capacities of the aggregate of lives which form the sheaths or bodies, imprison the real man or woman and limit his/her powers. Your lives Dear Ones are intelligent units on the Involutionary Arc of Evolution, working towards self-expression. Their objective is, however, different from that of the Inner Man/Woman and they hinder his/her progress and self-realization. He/she becomes “enmeshed in the ego personality activities” and must free him/herself before he/she comes into his/her heritage of Power and Peace and Bliss. Man or woman cannot attain “unto the measure of the Stature of the Fullness of the Christ” until there are no modifications to be felt, until the forms of the three lower bodies are transformed, their activities quieted, and their restlessness stilled.
“Aspirants, Disciples and Initiates alike are urged to bear in mind the nature of these aspects of Evolution which is proceeding concurrently from within a Group Formation. The times have changed, and whereby once this was a personal endeavour today individuals can be helped through the Unity of Group Consciousness. Hence the 14 Rules for Group Initiation. Right application of this inner work must be embraced, else further forward movement shall be stifled.
“Not one of you who are reading this have had the same identical experience as another and although the intensities of such experiences vary in ways beyond imagination there is one aspect of these facts that do remain identical. Not is experience this time but is in the process of Transformation into a Higher more Illumined State of Consciousness.
“Therefore, the transfer of the consciousness from a lower mind thoughtform into a Higher is part of the Great Creative and Evolutionary process. This is a very free translation but conveys a clear interpretation of the Truth to be grasped. The Evolution of Consciousness and the effect of that Evolution upon the physical, mental and emotional forms in which the conscious entity functions, is the sum total of the processes of nature and from the standpoint of the intelligent human unit, three words cover the process and the result. These words are, Transfer, Transmutation, and Transformation.
“One of the basic Laws in occult development and in Spiritual Unfoldment is given in the words “As a man thinketh, so is he,” and to it one can link the oriental truism, “Energy follows thought” as an explanation. As a man or woman changes his/her desires, so he/she changes him/herself; as he/she shifts his/her consciousness from one objective to another, so he/she alters him/herself, and this is true in all realms and states, higher or lower. The effect of the transference of our conscious thinking state from a low objective to a higher one produces a flow of energy of a Vibratory Quality equivalent to the Higher Objective. This produces a change or a mutation in the vestures of the thinking entity, and they become transmuted and brought to a condition where they are adequate to the thought or desire of the man or woman. Carried to their conclusion, a transformation is produced, and the words of St. Paul become therefore clear: “Be ye therefore transformed by the renewing of your mind.”
“Be clear Dear One’s, to achieve Transformation of the mind one needs to be very discerning as to what the mind portrays. For as the purificatory process is carried on, the sheaths or bodies which veil the reality becomes attenuated and no longer acts as thick veils, hiding the soul, and the world wherein the soul normally moves. The Aspirant/Disciple/Initiate becomes aware of a part of him/herself, hitherto hidden and unknown. He/she approaches the heart of the mystery of him/herself and draws closer to the “Angel of the Presence” which can only be truly seen at Initiation. He/she discerns a new factor and a New World and seeks to make them his/her own in conscious experience upon the physical plane. But not necessarily one that is Real, but one that remains a higher and more intense experience of the illusion.
“It should be noted here that Revelation, deals with the man or woman from the standpoint of the three worlds, physical, mental and emotional and brings about (in the man’s or woman’s physical brain) the power to discriminate between the real and the unreal and to discern the things of the Spirit. This is a most important facet of the process, because to continue in the unreal only reinforces the unreal, ‘Energy follows thought’ remember! Energy does not discriminate, it is projected knowing itself and returns unto the sender only with greater intensity and magnification to be dealt with. They cause also certain changes of conditions within the head, reorganizing the vital airs and act directly upon the pineal gland and the pituitary body.
“Discernment is part of the life of the physical plane man and woman, then the spiritual man and woman, the ego or thinker on his/her own plane attends to his/her part of the liberating process and the final two stages are brought about from above downwards. This process is the correspondence upon the Path of Discipleship, of the individualizing process, wherein animal man/woman, the lower quaternary (physical, etheric, astral and lower mental) received that twofold Expression of Spirit, Atma-Buddhi, Spiritual Will and Spiritual Love, which completed him/her and made him/her truly man and woman. The two stages of development which are brought about by the ego within the purified and earnest Aspirant, Disciple or Initiate, are:
“1. Enlightenment. The Light in the head, which is at first but a spark, is fanned to a flame which illumines all things and is fed constantly from above. This is progressive and is dependent upon steadfast practise, meditation and earnest Service.
“2. Illumination. The gradually increasing downpour of fiery energy increases steadily the “Light in the head,” or the effulgence found in the brain in the neighbourhood of the pineal gland. This is to the little system of the threefold man and woman in physical manifestation what the physical Sun is to the Solar System. This Light becomes eventually a Blaze of Glory and the man or woman becomes a “Son/Daughter of Light” or a “Sun of Righteousness.” Such were the Buddha, the Christ, and all the Great Ones who have Attained this State of Being!
“Here I shall close and would sincerely ask each of you beginning this Rule 1 of the 14 Rules for Group Initiation, or those reading this whom have already completed or in the process of such an endeavour or indeed anyone reading or listening to this, ponder if you would, for there is greater Understanding to be had. The analogy of the climbing up to the Summit of the Mount of Transfiguration could not start at a better place than these Rules for Group Initiation.
“I Am here with each and every one of you and remain in your Service sharing all that I Am with you to Illumine the way just a little with you! I wish to see your faces Shine as the Sun, and your Raiment’s as White as the Sacred White Fire Light.
“I Am Your Brother, Djwhal Khul.”
