A reflection on harmlessness reminded me of these AAB-DK quotes (below) and made me wonder: who would be “the seven men” representing the evil ideology of separateness in the United States today?
Keeping it impersonal, without naming names, can we “prevent, negate and destroy… the appearance, the quality and the life” of the EGREGOR of illusion, glamour and maya channeled by “Hitler, von Ribbentrop, Goebbels, Goering, Hess, Himmler and Streicher” then (EOH 258) and operating now in the Trump regime and its enablers in the USA and worldwide, particularly the Zionists? -JB
- Goebbels, Paul Joseph: Minister for Propaganda; NSDAP propaganda leader
- Goering, Hermann: General of the Air Force, chief of the Four-Year Plan (war economy), Minister for Aviation
- Hess, Rudolf: Deputy to the Fuehrer, NSDAP
- Himmler, Heinrich: Reichsfuehrer-SS, Chief of the Police
- Hitler, Adolf: Fuehrer, Reich Chancellor, Supreme Commander of Armed Forces, Minister of War, commander in chief of the army, Fuehrer of the NSDAP, Fuehrer of the SS
- Ribbentrop, Joachim von: Foreign Minister, 1938-45
- Streicher, Julius: founder of Der Stuermer (Der Stürmer (literally “The Stormer / Attacker / Striker”) was a weekly German tabloid-format newspaper published from 1923 to the end of World War II by Julius Streicher, the Gauleiter of Franconia).
EOH (written in Sep 1941): In the past I have outlined for you the general programme and the hoped-for objectives. I have given you much information and have indicated need and its possible solution. I have given you practical suggestions as to procedures and methods. I have asked—as I ask today—for your cooperation, and I ask it on behalf of the Forces of Light, of the spiritual Hierarchy and of distressed humanity.
The present world crisis could be shortened if the spiritually minded people lived up to their inner belief and knowledge. The task of unifying the men and women of goodwill is today infinitely more difficult than it was before the war. It can only be done if each servant of the Hierarchy thinks clearly, loves intelligently and serves to the utmost. I make no plea. I have pleaded much with all of you in the past, and the effort which resulted, though not a complete failure, was not adequately strong enough to off-set the forces [Page 326] of evil, focussed in Germany, Japan and—to a much smaller extent—in Italy.
This last statement (which I have made in other writings) has evoked resentment in the minds of those who believe that the Forces of Light must love so indiscriminately that their work on the side of evolution is negated, and that effort to promote the development of the human consciousness is rendered completely futile or should be held in abeyance until the fight is over. I would here point out that if the Forces of Light—aided by you—did nothing to influence the minds of men, the forces of materialism and of evil would triumph. Humanity would then be spiritually defeated and its evolution would be set back for an indefinite period. I would here call your attention to the words of my great Master and yours: “By their fruits ye shall know them.” I would remind you that there would be no world war today if Germany had not marched on Poland. The cause of the widespread cruelty, terror, murder and agony rests squarely on the shoulders of the seven men in Germany.
Had the aspirants and the disciples of the world realised the situation earlier, and had they worked more wholeheartedly, the present catastrophe could have been held within bounds; it could have been retained and the problem worked out upon the inner planes of thought and desire, and could there have been transmuted and the needed readjustments made. But they failed to understand, and the storm broke upon the physical plane.
The next twelve months will be decisive in human affairs. By the end of 1942, chaos and difficulty will still be present, but the sound of the victor’s trumpets will be heard. Will the victors be the Forces of Light, under whose banners fight the Allies, or will evil triumph and greed reap the profits of aggression? Will men be led into a darkness which—though not interminable—will engulf the human soul for decades? The answers to these questions lie in the decisions and the activities of humanity itself. The Hierarchy waits.
EOH : Toward the end of the second decade of my work, totalitarianism reared anew its most evil head, and perforce, the Hierarchy took sides against this primary principle of evil, though never against any group of human beings. Please [Page 637] note this. The point I seek to make is that the Hierarchy is inflexibly against any demonstration of the principle of non- freedom, no matter what form it takes, but is ever on the side of humanity. The spirit of evil which animated German actions evoked every possible opposition from the Forces of Light and from their source, the Hierarchy. Today this totalitarian evil is expressing itself through the planning of the Russian oligarchy, through the Zionist movement, and through all groups which seek to fetter and imprison the spirit of man; but the people under the sway of this evil influence and the scheming of these evil groups are never regarded in any light different to that of the rest of mankind. They are looked upon as glamoured, or as weak and ignorant (which they undoubtedly are), but they are never separated off in the thinking and planning of the Hierarchy from the rest of mankind. The evil must not be permitted or allowed to triumph, but the unhappy and glamoured exponents of this evil are loved, along with the rest of mankind. This is a point which is hard for the illogical thinker to understand, but it expresses most truly the attitude of the Christ and of all who serve His cause.
R&I: The area of difficulty—as is well known—is the Near East and Palestine. The Jews (who are not a nation but a religious group), by their illegal and terroristic activities, have laid a foundation of great difficulty for those who are seeking to promote world peace. As a Jewish member of my Ashram pointed out (and I commend him on his soul vision), the Jews have partially again opened the door [Page 430] to the Forces of Evil, which worked originally through Hitler and his evil gang. The “sealing” of that door had not been successfully accomplished, and it is the part of wisdom to discover this in time. These Forces of Evil work through a triangle of evil, one point of which is to be found in the Zionist Movement in the United States, another in central Europe, and the third in Palestine. Palestine is no longer a Holy Land and should not be so regarded.
R&I: The major battle in the world today is that of the freedom of the average citizen to think for himself and to come to his own decisions and conclusions. It is here that the major quarrel between the Great White Lodge and the Black Lodge is to be found. It is a battle in which humanity itself is the decisive factor, and for this reason the Black Lodge is working through the group which is controlling the destiny of Russia and also through the Zionist movement. The leaders of the U.S.S.R. are working intelligently and potently against human freedom and particularly against freedom of thought. Communism per se has no such objective; it is the totalitarian policies of the national rulers which are so disastrous, plus their ambition and their hatred of true freedom. Zionism today stands for aggression and for the use of force, and the keynote is permission to take what you want irrespective [Page 680] of other people or of their inalienable rights. These points of view are against the position of the spiritual leaders of humanity, and therefore the leaders of the Zionist movement, and the group of men who direct and control the policies of Russia, are against the policies of the spiritual Hierarchy and are contrary to the lasting good of mankind.
The freedom of the human spirit, the freedom to think, govern and worship as innate, human, instinctual human desire may dictate, under the influence of the evolutionary process, the liberty to decide on the required form of government or of religion—these are the rightful prerogatives of mankind. Any group of men or any form of government which fails to recognise this inherent right runs counter to the principle which governs the Great White Lodge. The menace to world freedom today lies in the known policies of the rulers of the U.S.S.R. and in the devious and lying machinations of the Zionists. In neither group is there any true spiritual potency, and both are doomed to failure even though they may succeed from the angle of material gain; from the spiritual angle, they are doomed. The leaders of the Russian enterprise against the freedom of the individual are doomed, because inherently man is free and fundamentally divine, and it is assured (from the long range vision) that masses of men in Russia and in the communistically inclined “satellite states” will inevitably react divinely and potently. The true communistic platform is sound; it is brotherhood in action and it does not—in its original platform—run counter to the spirit of Christ. The imposition of intellectual and formal communism by a group of ambitious and sometimes evil men is not sound; it does not adhere to the true communistic platform, but is based on personal ambitions, love of power and on interpretations of the writings of Lenin and Marx which are also personal and run counter to the meaning of these two men, just as the theologians of the Church interpret the words of Christ in a fashion which has no relation to His original intention. The rulers of Russia are not truly working for the good of the people, any more [Page 681] than academic Zionism is working and carrying out its projects for any humanitarian reasons. But the people hold the ultimate triumph in their hands, for the heart of the people in all nations is basically sound, fundamentally good and God-inclined. This the rulers of the communistic regime forget. ###
