Synthesis, Agni Yoga and the Christ
By Duane Carpenter
Thank you for sending me information on this new book by Vicente Beltran Anglada now published in English for the first time. There is a small but growing group of initiates and disciples at this time historically who are attempting to understand what true Agni Yoga may actually be and how it relates to the externalization of the Hierarchy, the Reappearance of the Christ and what these new third phase teachings may actually look like. It has become apparent to me that some of these advanced teachings are filtering through all areas of the occult sciences and not just esoteric astrology which we know is the most ancient of all the occult and esoteric sciences. To show the complexity of the subject DK has also stated.
“It is these Mysteries which Christ will restore upon His reappearance, thus reviving the churches in a new form, and restoring the hidden Mystery which they long have lost through their materialism. Masonry has also lost the true livingness it once possessed but, in its forms and rituals, the truth is preserved and can be recovered. This Christ will do. He will also revive these Mysteries in other ways; not all will seek the church or Masonry for the revitalizing of their spiritual life. The true Mysteries will also reveal themselves through science and the incentive to search for them there will be given by the Christ. The Mysteries contain, within their formulas and teachings, the key to the science which will unlock the mystery of electricity—the greatest spiritual science and area of divine knowledge in the world, the fringes of which have only just been touched. Only when the Hierarchy is present visibly on Earth and the Mysteries of which the disciples of the Christ are the Custodians are given openly to the world, will the true secret and nature of electrical phenomena be revealed.” (123-4 ROC)
This science of electricity DK is referring to is slowing being revealed through conventional science as well as ancient yogic traditions and its current research and exploration in so many new and creative ways that it may be incomprehensible to esoteric students of the past who are not informed or abreast of these modern discoveries. It is not just astronomy and astrophysics but involves all the sciences, particularly those that are exploring electricity, energy, force, light and gravity in new and creative ways.
Since initiation is also a deeply subjective experience requiring not just new information on any given subject but requires changes in the inner man and his different spiritual bodies only those who have had advanced meditative training and raised the Kundalini force to the higher head centers will see all of these obtuse questions in a new light and be able to answer these deep and mysterious questions because they are now directly interfacing with those hidden forces in their higher form. Kundalini we know has may levels and facets and only a true Agni Yogi can claim to have activated those three higher head centers we call the Crown, Ajna and the 12 petaled heart center within the head and not simply the centers found along the spine and lower torso. Only those who express all three qualities of the upper triad Atma, Buddhi and Manas simultaneously can claim to be an advanced Agni Yogi. We also understand that depending on a number of different factors which of these three centers will be the most dominate or the order in which they are first activated.
Paradoxically initiates of this standing that we have just outlined do not make claims but may prefer to remain anonymous and work from behind the scenes since the danger to “premature disclosure” might put them or the groups they work with in a vulnerable and compromised position because of world conditions.
Since symbols according to DK, HPB and Master M that have been shared in the Agni Yoga series of books are the language of initiates and how they communicate on high telepathic and intuitive levels it is important we follow their instructions and meditate on what they have given. Not just individually but in groups. I have rendered and designed many of these key symbols in my different e-books that can be found on the right hand bottom column when my http://www.light-weaver.com/ site first opens.
I am presently drafting up a commentary that will reveal some of the most important images and symbols given by Master M through the Agni yoga series. A few visual examples can be found attached to this letter and may be freely used or shared.
The Agni Yoga series of books and teachings gives us some insight into a new type of abstract or “spacial thought” and indicates it can more easily be understood by the recognition of an “ascending spiral or dual dodecahedron” These images when visualized and meditated upon put the student in a better position to understand the idea of “Fiery Space” or the supreme principal of the “Intuition” “Shamballa” and the “Divine Will”. I understand that there are many approaches to spiritual revelation and inner recognition and that the idea of geometry is mainly a second ray approach to truth but it is one that can reveal much about all of the 7 divine rays and their hidden constitution.
Let us give a practical example and quote from Agni Yoga, 361.
“There are two kinds of logic: the logic of external reasoning, which one attempts to learn from textbooks, and that of mental synthesis, by which one collects and links the sparks of spatial thought. These sparks may seem to be a happy accident, even though this “accident” may have been ripening in space for an entire century…”
“As rings of the spiral show to the observer the outer turns and conceal the inner turns, so mental logic proceeds according to the limits of the outer turns while the inner turns are still merged in the streams of collective thought in space. Hence, We take such care about the broadening of the consciousness, in order that union with spatial thought may be approached.
This must be accepted as simply as is the vital importance of oxygen. Equally simple should be the idea of the spiral nature of all that exists, and of creative explosions. Thus the breath of the Cosmos will be realized as an ascending spiral…”
“We all rejoice if you are applying the rhythms indicated to you. Of course the rhythms vary with each individual, and the current condition of one’s organism determines the results. One should accept the transmissions from space into the open Chalice. This is the guarantee of synthesis. Likewise, one must follow one’s inner rhythm, because the developed consciousness cannot be without rhythm.
The combination of two dodecahedrons is useful for promoting the rhythm of fire. When enough energy has been accumulated, I shall demonstrate it, because this fleeting rhythm is necessary for the approach to Agni Yoga.”
Thank you dear Jose for your persistence determination, love and devotion to reveal and share your many important insights and research. I have ordered Vicente’s book and look forward to reading it. No one in the different esoteric fields or groups is the exclusive custodians of this important information we seek. Working together we can help build a better understanding of what Agni Yoga may look like hence in our small but important way help vacillated the Externalization program and the Reappearance of the Christ.
