What’s new about the New Age is that new energies and forces are flooding the planet right now and they are playing upon humanity and the consciousness of humanity and all kingdoms living on Earth.
And as these very energies flooding the planet hit upon the consciousness and life on Earth, they produce a very tangible effect – an effect which we, as human beings living in the middle of all of this, experience as crises, personal and planetary crises.
So one of the main reasons why we have so many crises on Earth right now – politically, economically, financially, socially, interpersonally in our relationships – is because these new energies are hitting our planet and consciousness right now and they are working on us, quite literally.
Now, you may ask: What kind of energy is that and why is it hitting us right now?
You see, everything is energy. We live and move and have our being in a sea of energies. But not all energy is the same. There are different qualities of energy – and the difference between the different types of energy is that they are impressed with a different quality and divine purpose. In intuitive philosophy – these energies impressed with differing divine intentions – are known as the so-called the Seven Rays.
Now, I don’t want to talk about the Seven Rays right now – simply because you can’t talk about that subject in a 5-minute video blog – but in essence there are so-called Seven Rays. And these so-called Seven Rays are said to make up the Personality of our Creator. Being an extension of our Creator, they also make up our very own personal and also planetary personality. The reason why one country is known for its discipline, and the next country is known for its scientific advancements has to do with these so-called Rays. The reason why one person has an analytical mind and becomes a mathematician and why the next person is more intuitive and artistic and can’t make any sense of maths at all, for example, has to do with these Seven Rays. Again, this is a huge subject and I am leaving out a million details here.
Anyway, in essence, the Seven Rays are Seven Universal Laws. And as they play upon our consciousness, by interacting with them, we are forced to learn these laws. So long as we are unawakened and unaware of their existence (which applies to mass consciousness), we are more or less victimized by these energies. Once we wake up and become aware of their existence, we can start consciously co-creating with them.
So what’s new about the New Age?
What’s new is that we have entered the Aquarian Age – and each astrological age has a different Ray influence. And the reason why that is, is because when these energies hit upon us, we start working with them and integrating them and making them part of our consciousness – even if we are not consciously aware of any of it. For example, the Age of Pisces was under the influence of the Sixth Ray of Idealism and Devotion. That’s why there was a Jesus who became Christ – Christ just being another word for the perfect expression of Divine Love. So Christ Consciousness or Divine Love was the ideal of the Piscean Age and the masses got devoted to the ideal. That’s the effect which the Sixth Ray of idealism and devotion has produced. Again, I am leaving out a lot of details here, but making idealism and devotion a part of our consciousness was an important step in our evolution in the Piscean Age.
Now anyway, what’s new about the New Age? What’s new about the New Age now is that this new age, this Aquarian Age, is under the influence of the Seventh Ray of Divine Law and Order and Magic.
Now what does that mean?
It simply means this: We are now entering the next phase in our evolution. And in this next phase we will be learning about the Universal Laws that maintain Order in the cosmos. These laws have always been there – we have just been unaware of them; and in this next phase of our evolution, they will become externalized, they will become mainstream. And as we learn about these laws and start working with them, we can actually become conscious co-creators with our Divine Creator. We become magicians.
Let me give you an example of what I mean by that and why the Seventh Ray is also called the Ray of Magic (which I guess must sound strange to some of you, at least to those of you who are new to intuitive philosophy who may think that can’t be for serious): Let’s say you are dreaming about having your own home. In your mind’s eye you start picturing it, then you start getting emotionally excited about it, and then you decide to take some physical initiative to manifest that beautiful home – and voilá, before you know it, you are living in your new home. If you think about it, that’s quite magical, isn’t it? How an idea in our mind becomes a physical reality. Today you dream about it and tomorrow you hold it in your hands. That’s called magic, in intuitive philosophy. So we are all doing it already – we are all magicians creating our lives, each one of us, day in and day out – but we don’t realize it. We don’t realize that our thinking, that our getting emotionally excited or getting emotionally worried about our thinking, and our doing creates our lives. When we think, when we feel, when we do, we are working with energies and forces.
