Arizona flips blue

We must not underestimate the significance of this victory in AZ.

NYT: That Arizona — the home of the late Senator John McCain and Senator Barry Goldwater, a founder of the 20th century conservative political movement and the 1964 Republican presidential nominee — was in play for Democrats at all is remarkable. Before the state voted for Mr. Clinton, the last Democrat it had supported for president was Harry S. Truman in 1948.

Mr. Biden’s win underscored a profound political shift in Arizona, a longtime Republican bastion that has lurched left in recent years, fueled by rapidly evolving demographics and a growing contingent of young Hispanic voters championing liberal policies.

The NYT “forgot” to mention that Phoenix, AZ is the seat of the International USR Conference and that for 4 years we have been invoking the Lords of Liberation to assist us in spreading abroad the Light and Love and Power needed to prevent, negate and destroy the alternative reality of a fake post-truth world driven by the evil ideology of Trumpism.  

Only Truth Can Save Our Democracy
The Trump presidency has dangerously normalized lying.

When Trump was allowed to spread the “birther” lie for years — that Barack Obama, who was born in Hawaii, was actually born in Kenya and was therefore ineligible to be president — he realized he could get away with anything.

Sure, Trump eventually gave that one up, but once he saw how easily he could steal our turkey — the truth — he just kept doing it, until he stole the soul of the Republican Party.

And, had he been re-elected, he would have stolen the soul of this nation.

He and his collaborators are now making one last bid to use the Big Lie to destroy our democracy by delegitimizing one of its greatest moments ever — when a record number of citizens came out to vote, and their votes were legitimately counted, amid a deadly and growing pandemic.

It is so corrupt what Trump and his allies are doing, so dangerous to our constitutional system, but you weep even more for how many of their followers have bought into it.

“Lies don’t work unless they’re believed, and nearly half the American public has proved remarkably gullible,” my former Times colleague David K. Shipler, who served in our Moscow bureau during the Cold War, said to me. “I think of each of us as having our own alarm — and it’s as if half of their batteries have died. Lots of Trump’s lies, and his retweets of conspiracy fabrications, are obviously absurd. Why have so many people believed them? I’m not sure it’s fully understood.”

That is why it’s vital that every reputable news organization — especially television, Facebook and Twitter — adopt what I call the Trump Rule. If any official utters an obvious falsehood or fact-free allegation, the interview should be immediately terminated, just as many networks did with Trump’s lie-infested, postelection, news conference last week. If critics scream “censorship,” just shout back “truth.”

This must become the new normal. Politicians need to be terrified every time they go on TV that the plug will be pulled on them if they lie.

At the same time, we need to require every K-12 school in America to include digital civics — how to determine and crosscheck if something you read on the internet is true — in their curriculum. You should not be able to graduate without it.

We need to restore the stigma to lying and liars before it is too late. We need to hunt for truth, fight for truth and mercilessly discredit the forces of disinformation. It is the freedom battle of our generation.

Thomas Friedman has put in words what we have been invoking for all these years. This is the function of New Group of World Servers at work.

EP II, 638: Behind this fourfold panorama of humanity stand Those Whose privilege and right it is to watch over human evolution and to guide the destinies of men.  This They carry forward, not through an enforced control which infringes upon the free will of the human spirit, but through the implanting of ideas in the minds of the world thinkers, and the evocation of the human consciousness so that these ideas receive due recognition and become in time the controlling factors in human life.  They train the members of the New Group of World Servers in the task of changing ideas into ideals.  These become in time the desired objectives of the thinkers, and are by them taught to the great middle class, and thus worked up into world forms of government and religion, forming the basis of the new social order, into which the masses are patiently incorporated.

EOH: Let the Lords of Liberation issue forth. Let Them bring succour to the sons of men.

Who are the Lords of Liberation, and from whence do They come? All the ideas and concepts which control human life and have given rise to our civilisation have started as emanations from certain great Lives, Who are Themselves an expression of a divine Idea. The note They strike and the quality They emanate reaches out and makes an impact upon the most developed of the sons of men found at any particular time upon the Earth. These then proceed to make the sensed idea their own and to familiarise the thinkers of their time with the formulated concept. In this way great motivating, divine purposes become controlling factors in human progress. It is in this way that the basic urge to liberation and to freedom has slowly and consistently dominated human endeavour, leading first of all to the struggle for individual freedom and liberation (with the incidental ideal of heaven, of initiation and of spiritual attainment), and gradually moulding human thought to such an extent that the greater ideal takes shape. The freedom of humanity and the liberation of its power to be self-determining (which is an aspect of freedom) has become the dearest ideal and the best thought of the thinkers in all nations. In the last analysis, it is this interference with individual and group freedom which is the worst sin of the evil men who seek at this time to enslave the weaker nations and bend them to the rule of Germany, depriving them of [Page 267] their national assets and means of subsistence, and wresting from them—by force and fear—their dearest possessions, liberty of life and conscience.

Flipping Arizona blue is a partial victory.The Battle for Democracy is still raging. Georgia will be the next battle front.

Small Cracks Emerge in G.O.P. Support for Trump’s Baseless Fraud Claims

President Trump retains a powerful hold on his party. But a growing number of Republican elected officials and party leaders have signaled they will indulge his conspiracy theories for only so long.

Rule X. For Disciples and Initiates:  The rules for work within the veils of maya are known and have been used.  Let the group widen all the rents within those veils and thus let in the light.  Let the Army of the Voice be no more heard and let the brothers onward move within the Sound.  Then let them know the meaning of the O.M. and let them hear that O.M. as it is sounded forth by Him Who stands and waits at the very centre of the Council Chamber of the Lord.

Healing America

The HEALING of America

DN: The five cities which are the exoteric expression of the esoteric centre of force and through which the Hierarchy and Shamballa are seeking to work are the correspondence in the planetary body to the four centres up the spine and the ajna centre in the body of humanity and of individual man.

Research into the various national centres and their esoteric ruling energies, revealing in a more universal manner and with a wider horizon the destiny of humanity in relation to its group units, large and small.  The soul and personality qualities of nations will be studied, the centres within each nation which focus certain ray energies will be noted, and the qualitative emanations of its five or six major cities will be investigated.  Let me here give you an instance of what I mean:  the influences of New York, Washington, Chicago, Kansas City and Los Angeles will be the subject of scientific research; the psychic atmosphere and the intellectual appeal will be studied, effort will be made to discover the soul quality and the personality nature (the spiritual and the materialistic tendencies) of these great aggregations of human beings which have come into expression in certain fixed localities [Page 104] because they are expressions of the force centres in the vital body of the nation.

EOH 85: Nations, for instance, have seven centres, as have all forms of existence from the human and animal upwards, and it is an interesting study to discover these centres and note the type of energy which flows through them. In connection with the United States of America, Chicago is the solar plexus centre, whilst New York is the throat centre and Washington the head centre. The heart centre is Los Angeles.

[JB] By inference, the Heart of America, Kansas City, would correspond to the undeveloped ajna center of the United States.

As representative of Rural America, Kansas City, divided by the Missouri river (as geographically the whole country is), would serve as a point of cleavage upon which to pour healing energies of goodwill on the aftermath of this 2020 divisive election. -JB

EH 302: It has been most difficult to describe the nature of the imperfection of the energy of the Lord of the fifth ray.  In the activity of this energy which demonstrates primarily upon the fifth or mental plane will be found eventually the source of many psychological disorders and mental trouble.  Cleavage is the outstanding characteristic—cleavage within the individual or between the individual and his group, rendering him anti-social.  I have dealt with this in an earlier part of this treatise and need not further enlarge upon the difficulties here (In Esoteric Psychology, Vol. II of A Treatise on the Seven Rays).  Other results are certain forms of insanities, brain lesions and those gaps in the relation of the physical body to the subtle bodies which show as imbecilities and psychological troubles.  Another form of disease, emerging as a result of this fifth ray force is migraine, which is caused by a lack of relationship between the energy around the pineal gland and that around the pituitary body.

The Reconstruction of America

[JB] Invoking the WILL ASPECT… the Lords of Liberation (2nd stanza Great Invocation)… standing with massed intent to defeat the forces of darkness…

and the aftermath … invoking the Spirit of Restoration..

Libra. Scorpio and Sagittarius mark the completion of the work initiation at Easter, Wesak and Christ’s (World Invocation) Day: the VICTORY (in the Battle for Democracy) in Scorpio 2020 followed by a Full Moon meditation on the RECONSTRUCTION of the Nation in Sagittarius.  

After the electoral victory (without lowering our guard on the “already devious manipulations, evil misdeeds and prejudiced court rulings affecting our US Elections, — and no doubt it will get much worse”), we must refocus our efforts to IMMUNIZE the masses, particularly RURAL AMERICA, with the Goodwill VACCINE. We need to develop this kind of Herd Immunity to PREVENT pandemics of separateness threatening Democracy in the US and worldwide. -JB  

ROC 93: In June 1945, Christ set in motion the forces of reconstruction which are related to the Will aspect of divinity and which remain as yet the least powerful of the three streams of energy, released during the three Full Moon Festivals in 1945. These forces of reconstruction are effective mainly in relation to those entities which we call nations.

EOH 483/4 [Easter Day 1945]: Behind the Christ, focussing with intensity today and preparing for a great act of spiritual cooperation at the time of the June Full Moon, stands the Hierarchy. Together with Him, They will invoke a group of spiritual Forces which (for lack of a better name) we will call the Forces of Reconstruction.

[…]

The energy which I have called the Forces of Reconstruction will be more general in their application, and they will affect the masses of men through the work of the men and women of goodwill. I have therefore outlined a planned distribution of the three great streams of divine energy which will be set in motion at the three current Full Moons—one already past and two to come:

The energy of restoration, at the time of the April Full Moon

The energy of enlightenment, at the time of the Wesak or May Full Moon

The energy of reconstruction, at the time of the June Full Moon.

EOH [September 1941]: PRACTICAL STEPS IN THE RECONSTRUCTION WORK

There are those who will consider the study of the coming reconstruction period as premature. They believe (and rightly) that our first immediate concern is to win the war, and with this I am fully in agreement. The will-to-victory is the first and basic essential, for there will be no true reconstruction activity if the Axis nations triumph. But there are many today whose task is not that of fighting and whose place and function is perforce in the civilian aspects of the life of the nations. These can think, and talk, and work in preparation for the future. […]

The work of reconstruction will be the work of the intelligent men and women of goodwill, and theirs will be the task to restore new life and happiness to humanity, and it is for them I write. Please bear this in mind. I am not writing for technical experts and trained advisors to the government, but to those who have goodwill in their hearts to all men, and who, because of it, want to do their share in bringing tranquillity and peace to the world—a peace based on surer values than in the past and upon sounder planning. In the last analysis, it is not peace for which the men of goodwill are working, but for the growth of the spirit of understanding and cooperation; this alone will be strong enough to break down racial barriers, heal the wounds of war, and build a new world structure adequate to the intelligent demands of the masses.
