Discipleship in the New Age II - Teachings on Initiation - Part IX
You get a clue here to the teaching which I have oft given to you, that the higher processes of spiritual unfoldment must consciously give way to a much higher phase of perception, for which we have, as yet, no word. In relation to consciousness, we speak constantly of initiation; in relation to this new process of simultaneous perception and interpretation, we employ the rather vague word "identification:"

The process in which the initiate is now permitted to share during and after the fourth Initiation of Renunciation (which is presented to him in a successive series of points of revelation) is made possible by his submission to the Law of Sacrifice. This, in its turn, brings his consciousness under the influence - in developing stages - of the Law of Assembly. This is a law to which I have not yet made reference in any of my previous instructions. The initiate can now - through appreciated and comprehended revelation - add to his work with the Plan and its building technique, a capacity to work with divine Purpose and with those substances (etheric in nature) and those energies which permeate the cosmic etheric body (the four higher planes of our cosmic physical plane) under a law which is set in motion by the Father, but which makes the building activity of the Son possible, so that it is utterly in line with divine Purpose.

Another angle of this process, revealed by the point of revelation attained in the fourth initiation, is that there is then indicated the very highest point of the process of [404] redemption, because the energies released within the Council Chamber of Shamballa are "the living substance which is substitutory in nature and which is made available to the progressing point of light." That point in the divine consciousness which can be called (for our purposes) the Unit, Man, redeems sequentially the substance of which all forms are made and brings into manifestation the higher counterpart of that substance, released - for man's use - at Shamballa. This is a deep mystery and I fear it is not possible for me to express these ideas with greater clarity. However, under the Law of Correspondence or Analogy, the initiate can gradually come to a true perception of the significances involved. These points of revelation emanate from the world of significances, and not from the world of meaning; they cast light, if truly interpreted and in due time, upon that world of meaning, thereby redeeming and liberating the forms in the world of appearances.

You have therefore, in this suggested point of revelation, the same three sequential methods of apprehension of truth as is to be found in all such revelations. What are these methods?

There is, first of all, the recognition of a great procedure which must, under the Law of Assembly, be responsible for the bringing in of extra-planetary energies as the redemption of the worlds of being and of form is carried forward by the second divine aspect. Of this procedure I can tell you naught. The place or the location of the procedure of assembly is made clear. It is in the Council Chamber of Shamballa. I would, however, brother of mine, call your attention to the fact that Shamballa is simply a word conveying the idea of a vast focal point of energies which are assembled and brought together by the planetary Logos in order to create a manifestation adequate to his unfolding intention and planetary service. The objective is equally clear; it is the assembly of that which has in it energies of redemption. Just as the Science of Redemption, under the hierarchical Plan, is the technique employed to redeem the world of appearances, so - on a much higher level - the Law of Assembly [405] produces the Science of Energy which is the redemptive process (in a sense which you cannot possibly understand) influencing the work of those who labor for redemption in the world of meaning.

Again you see how all this comes under the three stages of Penetration, Polarization and Precipitation, for it is related to the assembling of the redemptive energies brought into our ring-pass-not through the activity of Beings at Shamballa who can penetrate into extra-planetary spheres and then focus (within the Council Chamber at Shamballa) the energies thus assembled. They can then precipitate them into the ring-pass-not of the Hierarchy, and consequently hasten the redemptive work and carry the energies from the highest levels of the cosmic physical plane down to the lowest level of outer, dense physical manifestation.

The agent of this process is the energy of the intuition or the energy of pure reason. This is the mental quality "within the ring-pass-not of the Universal Mind" which is increasingly employed by the higher initiates in the work of assembling energies. This energy is perceptive of the stage of redemption attained in the world of appearances as the Hierarchy applies the redemptive energies; it is also perceptive of the quality and the stage of activity which the new energies to be assembled must possess.

I would call your attention to the fact that this point of revelation is related to the plane of pure reason or to the buddhic plane; this is the lowest of the cosmic etheric levels; it is therefore a plane of "transitional ejection - a level from which the new and assembled energies are "let loose upon the world of outer forms." This process has been greatly facilitated since the entire Hierarchy shifted its location (since 1925 A.D.) from the higher mental levels to the buddhic plane, thereby making direct and unimpeded etheric reception possible. This is one of the significances of the words which we read in The New Testament that "the veil of the Temple was rent in twain from the top to the bottom" - a symbolic way of expressing the unveiling of an unimpeded channel. This was made possible by the Christ as the [406] Avatar, working in cooperation with the Master Jesus, and also by the point of evolution reached by the humanity of that time.

We will leave the fifth point of revelation at this time and consider it in our next instruction. It is one of tremendous importance, for it concerns the highest aspect of the Will and covers the synthesis of the energies of the five planes of human and superhuman evolution. This synthesis precedes the work done on the two highest planes of divine unfoldment, and comes to its focus and its full expression at the time of the sixth Initiation of Decision.
