Fifth Race and Sixth Race Man

“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

Mankind

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.

Elohim

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.

Fifth Race

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.

mortal man

Mortal Man and Spiritual Man

“I myself also am a mortal man, like to all, and the offspring of him that was first made of the earth, And in my mother’s womb was fashioned to be flesh. … And when I was born, I drew in the common air, and fell upon the earth. … For all men have one entrance into life, and the like going out. Wherefore I prayed, and understanding was given me: I called upon God, and the spirit of wisdom came to me. I preferred her before sceptres and thrones, and esteemed riches nothing in comparison of her. Neither compared I unto her any precious stone, because all gold in respect of her is as a little sand, and silver shall be counted as clay before her. … I learned diligently, and do communicate her liberally: I do not hide her riches. For she is a treasure unto men that never faileth: which they that use become the friends of God, being commended for the gifts that come from learning. God hath granted me to speak as I would, and to conceive as is meet for the things that are given me: because it is he that leadeth unto wisdom, and directeth the wise. … For he hath given me certain knowledge of the things that are, namely, to know how the world was made, and the operation of the elements: The beginning, ending, and midst of the times: the alterations of the turning of the sun, and the change of seasons. … For wisdom, which is the worker of all things, taught me: for in her is an understanding spirit holy, one only, manifold, subtle, lively, clear, undefiled, plain, not subject to hurt, loving the thing that is good quick, which cannot be letted, ready to do good, … For wisdom is more moving than any motion: she passeth and goeth through all things by reason of her pureness. For she is the breath of the power of God, and a pure influence flowing from the glory of the Almighty: therefore can no defiled thing fall into her. For she is the brightness of the everlasting light, the unspotted mirror of the power of God, and the image of his goodness. ” ~The Wisdom of Solomon

Mortal Man

Solomon, or whoever actually wrote this book using his name, that he is a mortal man like any of us. By this, he means that he is physically mortal for his mortal body will dies one day, just as will ours. He adds that he was fashioned of flesh in his mother’s womb, and born into the common air. He was not born in any special way that should make us think he was some special sort of being and not an ordinary human. Yet we all know that he was far from being an average person.

One Life to Live

Solomon also says: “For all men have one entrance into life, and the like going out.” This is probably the most important thing he says here, yet few will understand or believe it. We are all born once and die once. No second, third, or fourth chance. One physical life, that’s all! No reruns on this channel! So don’t just shrug things off thinking you will do better the next time. There is no next time. Mortal man gets one chance only. Continue reading “Mortal Man and Spiritual Man”

complete man

Complete Man of Body, Mind, Spirit and Soul

“Man is a far more complete being than is generally imagined. He has not only a body and a soul, but he is a spirit possessing a soul, which soul has several vehicles being of different degrees of density, the body being the lowest form of expression. …

“The real self is pure spirit, a spark of the divine fire. This spirit is encased within numerous sheaths, which prevent its full expression. As man advances in development, his consciousness passes from the lower planes to the higher, and he becomes more and more aware of his higher nature.

“The spirit contains within it all potentialities, and as man progresses he unfolds new powers, new qualities, into the light.

“The Yogi philosophy teaches that man is composed of seven principles. …The seven principles of man … are herewith stated:

  • Spirit
  • spiritual Mind
  • Intellect
  • Instinctive Mind
  • Prana, or Vital Force
  • Astral Body
  • Physical Body

Of all the seven principles od man, the physical body is or course the most apparent. It is the lowest in the scale, and is the crudest manifestation of the man.” ~~William Walker Atkinson

A Complete Man

We in Cosolargy would say that man is a complex being rather than “complete”. For one thing, complete implies that everything is there and no improvement is needed. I think we all know we haven’t reached that stage of completeness. Of course, Atkinson doesn’t actually say man is complete, just that he is more complete than we realize. Again, if that is true, it would be better to say that man is a complex being.

Spirit Possessing a Soul

I’m not sure we should say that the real person is pure spirit possessing a soul. Saying the spirit possesses a soul makes it sound like the soul is a piece of property that the spirit owns. It is more like the relationship between the physical body and mind. The body doesn’t possess the mind and the spirit doesn’t possess the soul.

Silent Animal and it’s Message to Man

“In the twilight of a beautiful day, when fancy seized upon my mind, I passed by the edge of the city and tarried before the wreck on an abandoned house. …

In the rubble I saw a dog lying upon dirt and ashes. Sores covered his skin,and sickness racked his feeble body…

I walked slowly towards him … but my approach only terrified him. … He turned a look on me in which helpless wrath was mingled with supplication. In that glance was speech more than any man’s. …

‘Man I have suffered through illness caused by your brutality and persecution. I have run from your bruising foot and taken refuge here , for dust and ashes are gentler than man’s heart. … I am a miserable creature who served the sons of Adam with faith and loyalty. I was man’s faithful companion, I guarded him day and night… But when I grew old and ill, he drove me from his home.

‘Oh son of Adam, I see the similarity between me and your fellow-men when age disables them. There are soldiers who fought for their country, … But now that the winter of life has come and they are useful no longer, they are cast aside. … How oppressive you are, son of Adam, and how cruel’” ~Kahlil Gibran

The Dog Story

It is hard to believe that in a day of great of great technological advances such a thing as animal abuse still exists. And it really doesn’t matter what kind of animal it is, but abusing pets, your own or another persons, is worse in one way. It is worse because these animals have been bred for centuries to trust and rely on humans. It’s really only one small step from Hitler’s SS having recruits raise a puppy for six months, then requiring them to kill it to prove their loyalty. We were appalled when we learned of such things done by the Nazis. But more than fifty years later animal abuse is still happening. The good news, I guess, is that in some places, the culprits are being sentenced to jail or heavy fines when caught.

But the dog in Gibran’s story has suffered what maybe the worse kind of abuse. On a mental level, it is worse than physical abuse. This dog lived with a family that it thought appreciated it and loved it. It did its best to please them and be a good companion. But when it became old and ill,they abandoned it. I don’t know exactly when Gibran wrote this, but he died in 1931. More than eighty years ago, yet little has changed. We still here of people abandoning pets when they get old or sick. One thing that has changed is that now those people get ridiculed in social media. Perhaps that will help prevent others from doing the same.

Dogs are not the only animals we treat poorly. On the very day I started working on this post I say a news story about a cat that was given away by its owners. The cat walked from the new owners home back to its original owners home twelve miles away. Their response was to ask the shelter to euthanize the cat. Fortunately, they refused and found the cat another home. And we treat plants even worse than animals, but that is a story for another time.

The Human Story

The silent animal is not just telling us that we mistreat animals, but also other humans. Gibran starts with the example of the soldier send off in his youth to fight, and possibly die, for his country. But when he is old and feeble, he is shoved off into a nursing home and forgotten. When the governments needs to cut spending, or just wants to to make voters happy, one of the first places they look to cut is programs for the elderly. Another is programs for veterans. “We love our veterans,” they shout, but they don’t want to fund them.

And lets not forget the great health insurance scams where the big corporations that own the hospitals and make the drugs also own, or are heavily invested in, the insurance companies. So the hospitals and drug sellers artificially raise prices, then give you a big discount through the insurance companies they own. It’s just a variation of the old department store scam where the double the price of a product the week before they put it on sale for half off.

Not only have corporation in the United States been given the rights that are intended for people, but they actually now have more rights than people. They have limited liability, a right that real humans don’t have.  Continue reading “Silent Animal and it’s Message to Man”
