Custodians of the plan

 The basic and most important fact which we need to grasp is the very simple statement that there is a plan for mankind, 

a goal towards which the evolution of the entire human family is tending. 

There are those who know of this plan and who, therefore, in a certain sense may be considered the custodians of the plan. 

They are human beings who have evolved a little further along the path than the rest of us.

Some effects of the incomming seventh ray energy on humanity.

One of the inevitable effects of seventh ray energy will be to relate and weld into a closer synthesis the four kingdoms in nature.  This must be done as preparatory to the long fore-ordained work of humanity which is to be the distributing agency for spiritual energy to the three subhuman kingdoms.  This is the major task of service which the fourth kingdom, through its incarnating souls, has undertaken.  The radiation from the fourth kingdom will some day be so potent and far-reaching that its effects will permeate down into the very depths of the created phenomenal world, even into the mineral kingdom.  Then we shall see the results to which the great initiate, Paul, refers when he speaks of the whole creation waiting for the manifestation of the Sons of God.  That manifestation is that of radiating glory and power and love.

Incidentally I might point out here that the seventh ray influence will have three definite effects upon the fourth and third kingdoms in nature.  These are as follows:

1. All animal bodies will be steadily refined and in the case of humanity consciously refined, and so brought to a higher and more specialized state of development.  This is today proceeding with rapidity.  Diet and athletics, open air and sunshine are doing much for the race and in the next two generations fine bodies and sensitive natures will make their appearance and the soul will have far better instruments through which to work.

2. The relation between the human and the animal kingdoms will become increasingly close.  The service of the animal to man is well recognized and of ceaseless expression.  The service of man to the animals is not yet understood though some steps in the right direction are being taken.  There must eventually be a close synthesis and sympathetic coordination between them and when this is the case some very extraordinary occurrences of animal medium-ship under human inspiration will take place.  By means of this, the intelligent factor in the animal (of which instinct is the embryonic manifestation) will be rapidly developed and this is one of the outstanding results of the intended human-animal relationship.
3. There will be, as a consequence of this quickened evolution, the rapid destruction of certain types of animal bodies.  Very low grade human bodies will disappear, causing a general shift in the racial types towards a higher standard.  Many species of animals will also die out and are today disappearing, and hence the increasing emphasis upon the preservation of animals and the establishing of game preserves.

A slice of the future

A slice of future vision.

Humanity is slowly moving towards a future world where racism and financial inequality has been redeemed.   There will be a free world for everyone, where all are members of the sisterhood and brotherhood of humanity.   This will happen when enough people desire it.
In this free world money will be shared equally and everyone will do his or her bit to assure equilibrium on the planet.
In this new there will no longer be a need for border control, and people will be travel freely wherever their interest drives them.
People will no longer travel in order to find work or escape governmental injustices for there will be one main world government.
What can we do today to ensure this future period of freedom is as rich as possible?
a)      We can preserve all animal and plant species for future re-establishment and to offer a richer human experience..
b)      We can control and reduce the human birth-rate because
o   Fewer people drain less of the global resource
o   Is easier to organize
o   Will reduce global poverty
o   Offers more space for nature
o   If not, the earth will no longer be able to sustain the appetites of humanity and the human race will start to die from starvation and global disasters.
c)                       We can preserve cultural heritage, heritage and language so that we can learn from each other in the future.   Every society has its own richness to share.      
d)      We can push educational requirement because none of the above is possible in a society that is emotionally driven.   A mentally focused person can strive towards future excellence, while an emotionally driven society seem to be caught up in past injustices and creating a future based on escaping pain rather than striving for freedom and abundance for all.   

 Tomorrow is not found in yesterday, yesterday was merely the foundation of today, which is the walls for the rooftop of which will be our tomorrow.
