i wanted to get these thoughts and notes together as a continuation of our dialog on the Christ/antiChrist and the  materializing influence. most of this information is from the esoteric perspective but lends validity to the question of purpose in polarity and end goal.

esoterisicm is the Science of Redemption. redemption means 'to regain possession of, to buy back again or to release.' all the world Scriptures carry the legend of the "fallen angels" and during the Middle Ages this legend became impregnated with the idea of a fall from grace, a fall into the depths, a descent into a state of wickedness.

the true esoteric meaning is that the Sons of God came down into matter and form in order to redeem matter or substance and lift the whole to the created world a little nearer to divinity. in the Secret Doctrine (Blavatsky), these "fallen angels" are called the Lords of Sacrifice and Love and the Lords of Knowledge and Wisdom, and that their work was to redeem form and, through the influence of the human kingdom, to lift it up to heaven.

humanity is the planetary savior of the three lower sub-human kingdoms (animal, vegetable, mineral), and the ultimate function of the human kingdom is the application of the Will of God to those kingdoms in execution of the divine Plan; of the lifting........releasing or redeeming of the "lives" evolving through the forms in those kingdoms.

the true Inner Redeemer, the Soul or divine Man carries this redemptive process forward with intelligence and perseverance through the transmutation of his own body vehicle (mental, emotional, and physical), making it an instrument "for the Master's use". through our own individual   redemption, the Christ within us is released in a new radiatory activity to merge with the Christ within all forms.

in the esoteric view there are three great planetary centers which are closely interrelated as expressions of divine livingness.

SHAMBALLA or Holy City.......the Spirit/Life aspect...... Will/Power.......Purpose, the Plan..........Lord of the World.........the Ancient of Days (Melchizedek).

the HIERARCHY or Inner Brotherhood.............Love/Widsom.........Unity, At-one-ment........Group Consciosness........World Savior........the Christ.

HUMANITY or outer brotherhood...........Active Intelligence..........Self-consciousness..........Creativity.............the Prodigal Son........Lucifer.

from the standpoint of the Hierarchy, the present conflict between the personality of humanity (expressing the material values as the dominating factor in life experience) and the soul of humanity (expressing the spiritual values as the dominating factor in human affairs) is identical with the conflict which takes place within a human being's consciousness when he has reached the stage of discipleship.

this can be called the conflict between Christ and Antichrist........... the dualities of spirituality and materialism, both in the individual and in humanity as a whole.

this relationship is also spoken of as God and the Devil ..........man himself is an expression of divinity (God) in a material form (the Devil).  matter is but the medium through which divinity must eventually manifest in all its glory.........and when that takes place, matter will no longer be a controlling factor but simply a medium of expression.

the battle is therefore on between the form side of life and the soul.

on the astral (emotional) and mental planes centers exist which are called "dark centers" because the emphasis of their activity is upon the material aspect of manifestation and upon the activity of material substance..........all energy is subordinated to purely selfish purpose.

the Forces of Light work with the soul  in every form.........they are concerned with group purposes and with the founding of the kingdom of God on earth. the dark forces work with the form side of expression and with the founding of a center of control which will be theirs entirely and which will subdue all the living forms in all kingdoms to their peculiar behests.

it is the old story, familiar in Biblical phraseology, of the kingdoms of the world and the kingdom of the Christ.......of the power of Antichrist and the power of Christ.

this produced a great climax in Atlantean days and, though the Hierarchy of Light triumphed, it was only by the merest margin. the battle was fought out on the astral plane, though it had its correspondence upon the physical plane, in a great world conflict of which ended in the catastrophe of the Flood.

the seeds of hate and of separation have been fostered ever since that time and the three modes whereby the forces of darkness seek to control humanity are hatred, aggression and separativeness............ the three great spiritual counterparts are love, selfless sharing and synthesis.

the same energy or identical force will produce results within the consciousness of a Christ or within the consciousness of Antichrist. it is the same energy, but the forms upon which it plays differ so vastly that in one case the will-to-good is intensified, and in the others the will-to-evil.......energy per se is entirely impersonal.

notes from the alice baley material
