Kurzbeschreibung

Juni 1973
We have a recognised cleavage to be bridged in the world today, usually known as the cleavage between "East and West", but termed more accurately between "Orient and Occident". Behind the differences in culture, tradition, religion, ideology and social customs, however, there is growing interchange of thought and mental understanding. One powerful stimulation to this mental rapport may be in an increasing tendency for the westerner to cultivate the science of meditation long practiced in the East as an essential part of religious and spiritual experience. In this day and age, and as we move on into the mentally oriented age of Aquarius, with increasing numbers of men and women transferring from an emotional to a mental focus, the science of meditation as a mind training technique in concentration and invocation will become increasingly practiced in the West. However, there are deeper and more profound areas of life and consciousness to be penetrated and revealed in meditation. Meditation, in the occult sense, is not only a training technique for the mind, but a means of achieving alignment, union and identification with the soul, with the Christ, and ultimately with "the Father". As distinct from the experience of mystical union, occult meditation establishes a scientific process by which causes set in motion will produce identifiable effects, which can be repeated at will. This is a technique to be mastered by the mind; it involves intense mental activity followed by an absolute stillness, with the ability so to control and order the mind that it engages in action or becomes stilled to "reflection" at will. The first purpose of this form of meditation is the conscious integration of soul and personality, so that the livingness of the soul may impress and influence the quality of the personality life. This draws a man steadily into that centre of consciousness within the planet we call the spiritual Hierarchy, the Kingdom of God; the spiritual Man then assumes control, and the divine potential is unfolded. Since we are dealing in meditation with energy flow which is literally fiery and impersonal, there are pitfalls and dangers to be understood and avoided; these, too, are discussed. And also the colours and sounds corresponding to the various ray energies which, occultly speaking, are vibrations of different frequencies. In looking towards the future, the author predicts the growing influence of the science of meditation, leading eventually to the establishing of schools of meditation under the guidance and instruction of initiated disciples. These schools will be of two kinds: one, preparatory; and the other actually training the student for initiation. The ultimate objective of these comprehensive training schools will be to provide qualified disciples for planetary service. In all training work inspired by Hierarchy the motif is service - the spontaneous effect of soul contact in the selflessly motivated disciple. "The motive may be epitomised in these few words: The sacrifice of the personal self for the good of the One Self. The method may also be shortly put: Wise control of the personality, and discrimination in work and time. The resultant attitude will be: Complete dispassion, and a growing love of the unseen and the real. All this will be consummated through steady application to occult Meditation."

Synopsis

We have a recognised cleavage to be bridged in the world today, usually known as the cleavage between "East and West", but termed more accurately between "Orient and Occident". Behind the differences in culture, tradition, religion, ideology and social customs, however, there is growing interchange of thought and mental understanding. One powerful stimulation to this mental rapport may be in an increasing tendency for the westerner to cultivate the science of meditation long practiced in the East as an essential part of religious and spiritual experience. In this day and age, and as we move on into the mentally oriented age of Aquarius, with increasing numbers of men and women transferring from an emotional to a mental focus, the science of meditation as a mind training technique in concentration and invocation will become increasingly practiced in the West. However, there are deeper and more profound areas of life and consciousness to be penetrated and revealed in meditation. Meditation, in the occult sense, is not only a training technique for the mind, but a means of achieving alignment, union and identification with the soul, with the Christ, and ultimately with "the Father".

As distinct from the experience of mystical union, occult meditation establishes a scientific process by which causes set in motion will produce identifiable effects, which can be repeated at will. This is a technique to be mastered by the mind; it involves intense mental activity followed by an absolute stillness, with the ability so to control and order the mind that it engages in action or becomes stilled to "reflection" at will. The first purpose of this form of meditation is the conscious integration of soul and personality, so that the livingness of the soul may impress and influence the quality of the personality life. This draws a man steadily into that centre of consciousness within the planet we call the spiritual Hierarchy, the Kingdom of God; the spiritual Man then assumes control, and the divine potential is unfolded. Since we are dealing in meditation with energy flow which is literally fiery and impersonal, there are pitfalls and dangers to be understood and avoided; these, too, are discussed. And also the colours and sounds corresponding to the various ray energies which, occultly speaking, are vibrations of different frequencies.

In looking towards the future, the author predicts the growing influence of the science of meditation, leading eventually to the establishing of schools of meditation under the guidance and instruction of initiated disciples.

Über den Autor und weitere Mitwirkende

The books of Alice A. Bailey, written in cooperation with a Tibetan teacher between 1919-1949, constitute a continuation of the Ageless Wisdom--a body of esoteric teaching handed down from ancient times in a form which is always suitable to each period. Intended to precede and condition the coming era, the Alice A. Bailey writings offer an unparalleled spiritual approach to such subjects as the teaching on Shamballa and the Path of spiritual evolution; the spiritual Hierarchy; the new discipleship and training in meditation as a form of service; the teaching on the seven rays and the new psychology of the soul; the teaching on esoteric astrology; and the new world religion, which emphasizes the common thread of truth linking all the major world faiths. Alice A. Bailey, (1880-1949) From her conservative British background, Alice Bailey's life led her in many directions, but always in one direction--towards the time when through drastic personal experience of many kinds she had acquired a synthesis of outlook and understanding, and an absolute conviction that one divine life pervades and animates the one humanity; that the Plan for humanity requires the cooperation and service of trained and dedicated human beings intelligently informed about world affairs, in collaboration with those who form the spiritual Hierarchy, the inner government of the planet. Her life work became an integral part of this synthesis and this realization. Without in the least losing any of her very human qualities and involvement, her soul took up its commitment to her Master, and her personality provided full cooperation in the field of her accepted service. Basically her work developed as a duality--her discipleship service which included the establishment of an esoteric school; and her initially reluctant agreement to work with the Tibetan, Djwhal Khul, in the writing of a series of books presenting the next phase in the continuity of the Ageless Wisdom teaching for the present and the immediate future. An extract from the Tibetan teacher, written in 1934 briefly explains the intent of these teachings: "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. It is for you to ascertain their truth by right practice and by the exercise of the intuition. Neither I nor A.A.B. is the least interested in having them acclaimed as inspired writing, or in having anyone speak of them (with bated breath) as being the work of one of the masters. If they present truth in such a way that it follows sequentially upon that already offered in the world teachings, if the information given raises the aspiration and the will-to-serve from the plane of the emotions to that of the mind(the plane whereon the Masters can be found) then they will have served their purpose. If the teaching conveyed calls forth a response from the illumined mind of the worker in the world, and brings a flashing forth of the intuition, then let that teaching be accepted. But not otherwise. If the statements meet with eventual corroboration, or are deemed true under the test of the Law of Correspondences, then that is well and good. But should this not be so, let not the student accept what is said."

5.0 von 5 Sternen Wonderful insights into practical meditation of all kinds. 30. Juli 2000
Von Dr Geo - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Gebundene Ausgabe
Most readers know already that meditation comes in many "forms". This book talks literally of these forms and the "principles" behind a large many of them and fits them into the groupings of the 7 rays. A "form" is a construction in thought matter, and the book explains that whatever kind of meditation you do constructs this as a bridge between the lower and higher self. For example, a person who prays and worships God is constructing their bridge from devotional "thought matter". The spiritual scientist uses rational or concrete thought to arrive at the Divine aspects of Truth in the substance of the created form. The spiritual magician uses rules and ritual.
There are "forms" the result of intelligent aspiration to God, and forms from application of Willpower. Obviously these forms are of a huge variety. There are the collective forms, all more or less valid, created by the world's religions and their meditative techniques. There are forms the result of colours, forms from mantras, forms from prayer, forms from music, forms from seeking the Void, forms from symbols, and forms from simply visualising God or the higher self.
Most important though is the form the disciple chooses in conjunction with their Teacher (whoever that may be). If you fully understand this book, you are probably a long way along The Path. If you use this book as a tool, you will gain as a person and as a soul. This book also has a very good section about dangers to be met in meditation, which is essential reading.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Letters on Occult Meditation 10. September 2001
Von Murmurd - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
Easy to read, more difficult to integrate. I found the Arcane School course of study very helpful with respect to Occult Meditation since the simple reading of this book does not help one advance in the practice. Step-by-step guidance by the Arcane School courses was essential for me to learn the intricacies of occult meditation. They showed the way that must be trod beyond thought to recognition of the voice of the Soul. Aspects of such meditation are clearly explained in this volume, but nothing can replace the practice, which must go hand-in-hand with the study.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Hints on meditation in a system 26. April 2006
Von J. J. Landheer - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
After reading many books on meditation and fooling around a bit myself, this book has again learned me some valuable things about meditation.

Coming into the second half of the book I had an initial feeling of "this is not for me, but for the more advanced levels". This is not true. If this book is for you (ie. you came halfway and you still like it :-), then every chapter has something to offer for you.

I think it is best digested in combination with other books from the same series, most notably "The Light of The Soul" and "A Treatise on White Magic". This book is for people who are on the verge of commiting themselves, I guess.

I am still tinkering on using these books, but a good teacher would be better (if available of course).

Meditation

They say "special experiences" are not to be valued.

Ha Ha

Meet your own Soul for the first time.

The Light

The unconditional Love

The Knowing without doubt

The trembling of Awe

The unbearable Energy

After that rests only the desire to regain that contact.
