This post begins to describe the characteristics of Bailey’s Group Four, which is dominated by what she calls Atlantean consciousness, Topics discussed include: Struggle to Lead More Stable Lives, Bonded and Connected, Conformity to Norms, and Following Leaders
This post continues to describe the characteristics of Bailey’s Group Three, which I have placed on the 6th subplane of the Emotional Plane and given the color of Red. The post also goes on to describe how Group Three/Red fits in with Bailey’s Egoic Lotus petals and does a comparison to the Integral model.
This post starts to describe the characteristics of Bailey’s Group Three, which I have placed on the 6th subplane of the Emotional Plane and given the color of Red. Group Three in Bailey’s model and is transitioning from “Lemurian to Atlantean consciousness, where the focus is increasingly on becoming tribal for the sake of exploiting resources to get initial desires met.
This chapter reviews some of the characteristics of Bailey’s Group Two and the development of what Bailey calls instinctual mind and hyper-sexuality.
This post completes the review of the Emotional Plane by taking a more in-depth look at kama-manas. The post also provides comparisons with Piaget’s system of Cognitive Development, Integral, and Theosophical models.
This chapter gives an overview of the Emotional Plane, which most of humanity is said to be on, demonstrating how it is connected to the emotions and desire.
This post describes Group One of Bailey’s Ten Groups. Bailey suggests this group has remnants of Lemurian consciousness. This group is also similar to Integral’s Infrared stage.
Before we become a Soul in the Ageless Wisdom teachings we have to learn to become an Integrated Personality. According to Ageless Wisdom and Integral theorists, few humans have reached this stage. What does it mean to become an Integrated Personality? What will humanity look like when it gets there? This book takes a look then at what it means to become fully human.
This second post on the Science of Contact attempts to discuss how contact is actually achieved. In truth, we are always in contact, but with what? Only as we can truly apply viveka (discernment) and meet the prerequisites that put us into resonance with that which we want to contact, can contact with higher levels of Divinity become possible. That is why in the Chela on the Thread stage so much emphasis is put on knowing how to navigate the subtle realms.
As I have been demonstrating when we get to Group 9 in the Ageless Wisdom teachings, which I have correlated to the Chela on the Thread stage, we must get a handle on the subtle realms from a place of increased objectivity and clarity. As we meditate and move into subtle realms caution is necessary. The Yoga Sutras of Pantanjali, comprised of four different books (which Alice Bailey read and commented on), talk about needing to establish a solid moral foundation (the yamas and niyamas) before moving into developing psychic powers, especially regarding Higher and Lower Psychic Powers. This moral foundation has some parallels to what has to be solidly in place by the Accepted Discipleship stage in the Ageless Wisdom teachings. We also have to have developed the capacity to truly think and intuit. In Integral, they refer to this as post-conventional thinking. But, there is more to contact than all of this, which is what this blog is attempting to explore.
