“It comes to this: Mankind in its first prototypal, shadowy form, is the offspring of the Elohim of Life (or Pitris), in its qualitative and physical aspect it is the direct progeny of the ‘Ancestors,’ the lowest Dhyanis, or Spirits of the Earth; for its moral, psychic, and spiritual nature, it is indebted to a group of divine beings. … Collectively, they are the handiwork of hosts of various spirits; distributively, the tabernacles of those hosts; and occasionally and singly, the vehicles of some of them. In our present all-material Fifth Race, the earthly Spirit of the Fourth is still strong in us; but we are approaching the time when the pendulum of evolution will direct its swing decidedly upwards, bringing humanity back on a parallel line with primitive third Root-Race in Spirituality. During its childhood, mankind was composed wholly of that Angelic Host, who were the indwelling Spirits that animated the monstrous and gigantic tabernacles of clay of the Fourth Race. … The ‘tabernacles’ have improved in texture and symmetry of form, growing and developing with the globe that bore them; but the physical improvements took place at the expense of the spiritual inner man and nature.” ~H. P. Blavatsky
Blavatsky talks about humanity in its current state and form as the “Fifth Race”. We in Cosolargy don’t talk about various races or levels of man, but of suns representing ages of Man. We are in the Fifth Sun now and at the beginning of the sixth and final sun. Humanity has descended further and further over millions of years until he is nearly all material with but a small part of spirit. If we descend one more level, we will be pure matter with no hope of turning around and returning to spirit.
The first version of Man was the creation of Elohim, which is one of the names of the real God, the God of Spirit, the God Jesus called “Father”. I don’t like the description Blavatsky gives us a “shadowy form” to this early prototypal human. We think of shadow figures as being demons and devils and early man was far from being that! A better way to say it is that we were less substantial and more spirit then. We were more light and less darkness, more energy and less matter. After the Great Fall, represented allegorically in both the story of Adam & Eve and the tale of the fallen angels led by Lucifer, Man was banished to Earth. Not an Earth of spirit, but one of matter. Since it is difficult, if not impossible to live in a material world when you are mostly spirit. Humans began to change. Over millennia, they became denser, more material, and therefore less spiritual.
Spirits of the Earth
What Blavatsky is calling the Spirits of the Earth are better known as the Fallen Angels, Devils, or Demons. Nowadays. We are probably not dealing with the original fallen angels at all, but with their offspring. Satan, for example, is not Lucifer under another name. Satan is the son of Lucifer. But I am confused by her also referring to these Earth Spirits as “Dhyanis” which seems to mean a spiritual master or highly advanced spiritual being, I.E. a Buddha.
Blavatsky calls this Fifth Race of humanity “all-material”. Fortunately, that is not accurate. We are but one small step from being all-material, but we are not there yet. This is fortunate because it means it is still possible for us—with a lot of help from God and Ascended masters—to turn around and head back towards being creatures of Spirit or Light. The Sixth Sun, also known as the Sun of Righteousness, has dawned and is gradually changing us and the world we live in. The Fifth Race of Man is starting to become the Sixth Race. But this can happen in any of three ways.
- We can sit back in neutral gear and wait to see what happens. Sadly, that is how many live these days including many who believe they are being spiritual by acting like a piece of driftwood.
- We can fight the change and try to remain material and materialistic like the people who insist on staying in a house that is being slowly covered with water in a flood.
- Or the best choice, we can embrace this change and work hard to help it come about in ourselves, in others, and in the world. The ones who do that are the Servants of God, the Chosen of God, the Soldiers of Light.
So don’t stay trapped as part of the Fifth Race any longer than you have to. The new Golden Age will be spiritual and it will need spiritual leaders. Be one.
