>From Red Letters the context
Our       recommendation is that you give yourself time to let the content of the       Introduction and Letters settle. In time it will settle and from this       place may come useful and important questions. If those questions are put       forward to us we will ensure that certain of them are passed onto Kuthumi       for him to make his reply. In this way we hope to get some much needed       constructive dialogue going with the Hierarchy on the subject of 2012.              
       The       Letters are under copyright to World Teacher Network (WTN) which is       managed by the DK Foundation, but they may be distributed freely. If they       are reproduced on web sites please register with the Foundation so that we       can create a network. It is almost certain that KH will use this network       to distribute other communications.               
              All communications about the Red Letters should be addressed to Charlotte       Alton at               
       The       Red Letters              
       I       am Kuthumi.  Many of you know       of me as Master K.H.; some of you know that at this time I stand at the       head of those who teach on the Second Ray. It is in this capacity that I       address you now.                            
       The       identity of my collaborator in this undertaking is a matter of no concern.       It is consistent with both the aim of the exercise and the wishes of my       collaborator that the intermediary’s role be obscured by direct       reportage of what was said by me during our many interviews which       commenced as the year 2004 closed.                              
       The       aim of this undertaking is to put in place knowledge that will equip us to       deal with the events of 2012. I say ‘we’ because in this matter the       Hierarchy is one with mankind, and preparing you for this momentous event       is something for which, long ago, the Hierarchy assumed full       responsibility.                             
       These       communications will take the form of a series of open letters, twelve in       all, laying out the considerations that will shape man and his       spirituality after the Planetary Initiation that will reach the physical       stage of expression in 2012.                             
       These       communications are designed to have a wide readership; they are not simply       for those with an interest in esoteric teachings. The delivery is       intentionally direct and factual. My collaborator and I have put much       effort into finding the words and expressions that will make these       communications easy to understand.                             
       I       am calling these communications the Red Letters and, as you read them, I       encourage you all to ponder why this should be.                            
       The       awareness that major physical changes will occur on our Planet in 2012 is       growing apace. Yet for all this, the reality is that we are we are facing       this time seriously ill-equipped.                            
       My       brothers, from the spiritual angle mankind is in a worse condition than it       has been at any time in the modern age. In other periods, materialism has       held mankind in its grip and spirituality has been downgraded and       rejected, but there has never been a time when materialism has been called       spirituality, as is the case now. The confusion that is resulting from       this is costing you dearly[i].                            
       Humanity       has made extraordinary choices in the past 100 years. It has chosen ease       and egotism; but it did not have to be this way. The knowledge that would       have informed other, more helpful choices has been available for       generations.                            
       For       its part, the Hierarchy has both underestimated the problem and made       errors of judgment.  Our       biggest error was that we did not envision that man would reject the       knowledge and perspectives of the Initiate in preference for astral       excitement. We anticipated a different response to the knowledge that we       have provided in the last century[ii].       We assumed that it would be a spur to mental development, and we failed to       read aright. the signs that were telling us that this was not the case.       Our sense of commitment and responsibility have not lessened, and it is       with deep sorrow that we work now to try and improve the situation                             
       My       collaborator has had to be made aware of this sorrow and it has been a       heavy burden, one of many connected with this undertaking.                            
       As       I have said, in this matter mankind and the Hierarchy are one. As you       might say, we are in this together. We appreciate that more detail about       the purpose and nature of events in 2012 may help mankind to focus on its       own role, and such detail is the substance of this Introduction.                             
       Let       it be understood that survival of the physical events of 2012 is matter of       choice because the necessary warnings and organisation, and the knowledge       of how to survive will all be in place.                            
       How       many will choose to leave their possessions and attachments? This is the       nature of the choice to be made[iii].              
       The       Red Letters are for those who would cut through astral confusion and       remain on dry land. They are for those who intend to survive 2012        to take mankind on to the next stage of its journey.                              
       The nature of the       Event                            
       The       nature of the occurrences of 2012 will be appreciated where there is       understanding of the mystery of baptism and, specifically, the purpose of       immersion.                            
       Immersion       in water heals and restores. There are those who view the immersion of an       infant at baptism as an act of unkindness because that is the way that       human thinking has gone; and there are those who will view the immersion       of terra firma in water as a judgement upon mankind. This is not the case.                            
       In       2012, to permit it to raise its vibration, the planet will see its most       polluted parts immersed. Physical pollution reflects astral pollution. Man       is partially, but not wholly, responsible for creating those astrally low       places but, unavoidably, he is caught up in the situation. It is the habit       of self-centredness that makes him think he is the cause.                            
       As       a general statement, the terrain north of 65 degrees will be above the       global upheaval. This will be the safe zone[iv].                            
       There       will be other locations below 65 degrees North pre-designated as safe, and       information about them will be released at appropriate times, through the       appropriate channels.                            
       The       territory above 65 degrees North is open to anyone who is able to make and       to take the decision to leave what is familiar to him.                            
       Survival is a matter of choice.                            
       The physical       process                            
       On       December 17th & 18th 2012, the configuration of       planets interacting with stellar influences will pull our planet  into       a more upright position[v].                            
       The situation may be likened to a bent person straightening up.                             
       This motion will change the moon’s orbit.                            
       Amongst       the effects of this will be, that:                            
       1.       The moon will be visible from only a relatively small proportion of the       Earth’s surface              
       2.       The changed angle of Earth’s axis in respect of the sun will create a       more temperate and more uniform climate on the planet              
       3.       The changed angle of its axis will also mean that new constellation will       be identifiable from Earth[vi].                            
       In       time, as a result of this process, the energies removed from Earth and       infusing with the moon will bring about a similar process on the moon       itself which will then develop its own moon. This involutionary process,       however, need not be our concern.                                          
       The effect upon       Man                            
       These       changes will encourage the consciousness of mankind to orient itself       differently. Man will become more spiritual in the sense that its mental       capacity will increase as lower energies are expelled.                            
       Amongst       these lower energies are the involutionary tendencies. As these are       expelled, so man’s astral body will be cleansed of its separatist       tendencies. Although his astral vehicle will still constitute his lower       principles, that part of man will not be involutionary, as is the case at       present.                            
       The       increasing of mental capacity means that man will respond differently to       stellar energies.                             
       As       stated previously, new constellations will also be created by the changed       relationship of Earth to the celestial backdrop and this will admit new       influences into Earth’s energy field              
       The Zodiac                            
       Although       it will not change in its construction, the Zodiac will be understood       differently because a higher energy will be able to flow through it. The       result of this will be that it will become more expressive of man’s       potential and less concerned with his liabilities.                            
       Each       man will know his purpose and he will school his emotional nature to       assist him fulfil that purpose.                             
       The       purpose of the Zodiac will be to encourage and direct aspiration and exist       as a matrix for the refinement of man’s astral vehicle. Rather than       distributing energy as is the case at present, the signs will be perceived       to act as magnets, drawing emotional energy upwards and giving it       direction.                             
       The       Astrology of the future will emphasise the Seven Suns, and the esoteric       and the Hierarchical rulers of the signs, which are as the Master DK has       given out. The conventional rulers of the signs will be abandoned.                            
       The       twelve spiritual principles outlined in these Letters anticipate the       Zodiac of the future.                            
       Amongst       the Hierarchy, it is hoped that the present time will see preparation       being made for these changes.                            
       The Spirituality       of Man                            
       At       present, the emotional body of man is dominated by selfish, separatist       urges and his spirituality is a response to these urges. Spirituality now       is shaped by the efforts of the isolated individual to hold down his lower       nature.                             
       The       spirituality of the future will be based upon a realisation of potential.       The difference between these two assumptions and, in consequence, in the       quality of the spirituality arising from them is far greater than you       suppose.                             
       Owing       to the involutionary nature of the lower self at present spiritual impulse       meets with resistance. This will not be the case in the future when       man’s emotional nature will welcome the energy that is to refine and       direct it. Man’s spirituality will be informed by the need to give       structure and direction to the emotional self.  At       present the emotional self does not want this kind of discipline: it wants       to be allowed to gratify its selfish, separatist urges.                            
       At       the time of and after 2012, survival will be dependent upon group       endeavour and co-operation will be the centre-piece of consciousness where       now is self-centredness.                            
       Earth       will become a more harmonious and constructive place, a place where       God’s plan meets with conscious cooperation.                            
       The       religion of the future will be based upon the recognition and reverence of       the Intelligences residing in each of the twelve signs, and upon       encouraging co-operation with them. The nature of these Intelligences will       be understood through their Hierarchical        rulers, and man will attend at their altars. They will be more       influential than the parents in the shaping of a child’s life[vii].                                          
       Man’s emotional       body                            
       The       emotional body of Man will be refined by the cataclysmic events of  in 2012 and will become aspirational in nature. At present       aspiration represents the highest expression of a vehicle driven by       desire.                            
       After       2012 the etheric body of our planet will support only those members of the       human family with the heart centre open or ready to open.  Those who have not attained this level of development will go,       of necessity, into another system, into which the animal kingdom will       eventually gain entry[viii].                            
       This       is not the first time that such a process of refinement has removed from       the planet’s etheric body members of the human kingdom below a certain       level of development. Tracking the withdrawal of involutionary lines,       however, has never been a part of the teaching of the Masters.                             
       Beside,       man knows it. Over the ages, his consciousness has been impressed by this       knowingness and by the need to look to himself. He does not need to be       told anymore. His need is to take note of what he knows.                            
       In       the time that remains, practice replacing covetousness with aspiration,       and isolation and self-centredness with purposeful endeavour. Express the       quality of life bestowed upon you by the Sun in its sign and become       yourself a conscious, active, contributing part of our Solar Logos, for it       is He whom we name when we speak of God.                            
       There       are now places on Earth where you can walk and be strengthened in who you       are and what you know. Find these places out and help yourselves as we try       to help you.                            
       My brothers, these communications are offered as a challenge but also as       a lifeline.                                                        
           [i]           The principal problem is           that spiritual ideas are being used to strengthen and support egotism           and separation. Spirituality has been taken hostage by the lower self.           Spiritual self-importance, imagined levels of development,           acquisitiveness, misuse of the astral plane and laziness are amongst           the most prevalent negative manifestations of this confusion of           spirituality and materialism. Yet the situation is different from the           state of affairs at the time of Atlantis. It is less that psychic           power is being abused as, we are told, was the case then; it is rather           that powerlessness - passivity, negativity and hopelessness - has           taken grip of mankind.                                                     

                    [ii]           Spiritual aspirants have           remained passive in their expectations, waiting for rewards, signs of           favour and selfishly using the astral plane to take rather than to           give out.                               

                    [iii]           There are considerations           of two kinds here:                       
           i) For the individual, facing 2012 in a state of           preparedness and consciousness which involves working on self to raise           vibration and open the heart centre.                      
           ii)           For the member of the human race, thinking beyond 2012 and of the need           for physical vehicles of quality to accommodate those returning to           incarnation to take mankind on into the future.                                                      

                    [iv]           Below 65S is also to be           considered outside the danger zone, but for reasons which are to do           with the geography, history and energy of the South pole, this is not           able to support human life in the same way as the North pole.                               

                    [v]           At present the ecliptic           (path of the Earth round the sun) is at an angle of 23 degrees to its           pole. This is will reduce by 8 degrees to15. The authority for this           statement is DK.                                                                           

                    [vi]           As KH goes on to say: the           creation of new constellations through the changed angle of Earth’s           poles will admit new energies to human and planetary consciousness.                               

                    [vii]           KH hints at this in           Letter XII.                                                     

                    [viii]           The Zodiacal           intelligences are known by those involved in high (white) magic but           they have had no place in Western spirituality in modern times,           although DK prepares the ground for this in Esoteric           Astrology. As the constellations (Great Lives) send energy into           our solar system, using the agency of the planets which then give to           the sun, so through our own (small) lives, we distribute energy in           accordance with our Zodiacal profile, and give to the sun of human           consciousness and possibility.

       Question:       How has it come to this  spiritually       parlous state of affairs?                            
       Answer: The Hierarchy guides; it does not control.                             
       There       are many ways to the same place; and we were confident that, in time, some       of the routes being taken out of the body of the teaching given by the       Hierarchy would lead to the desired goal. This has ever been the way that       the Hierarchy has worked with man.                             
       The       Hierarchy serves the goals that man has to achieve; it does not establish       them. They come from the needs of the larger system.                            
       The       goal now is the raising of the vibrational level of man which will come       from, and only from, the development of mental capacity.                            
       In       fact, each generation has given an extraordinary[1]       response to the teachings. The early Theosophist reacted in a way that you       could not imagine or understand today. But we have had to persist because       men have to develop mentally and we had to hope that, eventually, the       rabbit would come out of the hat, as you might say.        But, by 2003, it was clear to us that this was not going to happen;       mankind was not at the required level.                             
       We       do not talk about failure, and hope that you do not either, but the need       to be at a certain level by a certain time brings a significant factor and       new consideration into this situation. We had to review the situation and       take action.                             
       In       truth, the vibrational rate is far too low: man is committing suicide and       we cannot prevent it nor change the requirements laid upon him by the       system of which he is a part. Mankind rises and falls together - for as       long as there is a need to reincarnate. The weight of the mass must hold back       the most advanced  If man       could be controlled there would be no point to him. We can only watch in       great sorrow. We never envisioned a time when man himself would lose       interest in the experiment of life on Earth.

           [1]           When KH uses this term he usually means unexpected and           disappointing. 
       Question:        Would       K.H say something about the ownership/control of land immediately before       and after 2012?  Will we be obliged to fight bloody territorial wars?
       G.H       / UK
       Answer:  There       will be no warfare because no government will be involved. Your       governments will remain in denial of the happenings up until the end. Know       this but do not waste time in deploring or in trying to change this state       of affairs. By their denial your governments will preserve law and order,       which will enable those who are making arrangements to go about their       affairs efficiently and unmolested.                              
       Keeping       law and order best contribution that your governments can make because       there is no place in the events of 2012 for a mass survival strategies       that will keep alive frightened, negative people who will then succumb to       disease. They are better to die.                             
       Those       who do intend to survive will form themselves into a body that will work       across national boundaries, quite independent of the state structures.       Numbers of such people will be small. The Hierarchy estimates that around       0.07 per cent of the world’s population will make the choices and the       arrangements that will ensure their survival              
       Survival       will depend upon harmony and cooperation. Recognition of this will be a       condition of inclusion, both in the group organising evacuation and in the       post 2012 order.                            
       KH       / March 2005                            
       Question:        As       I read the Red Letters and especially Letter VIII, as my Sun is in       Scorpio, I ponder the message contained herein—“help others understand       the process of which they are part”. Perhaps it is easy for me, as I am       a student of astrology, as well as the Ancient Wisdom, and can better       understand the messages conveyed here in the language of astrology. But       how to convey this message to others who, by and large, consider anything       related to the field of astrology to be bogus.        These are not ignorant or uncaring individuals, but people brought       up in a world of materialism who believe in what they can perceive with       their five senses. Many are devoted Christians who are apt to take a very       skeptical view of any spiritual message in conflict with their religious       beliefs. So how can I step down this information to a more practical       level, where it can be received with some sense
 of urgency and believing       by those outside of the spiritual and astrological community?

       Answer:  The       personality thinks in terms of survival at any cost, but the perspectives       of the personality are not suitable for preparing for the events of 2012.              
       Handle       the knowingness that you have as you would an invitation, which was the       way in which it was given to you.               
       First       before issuing the invitation, the invitee considers the nature of the       event and for whom it might be suitable but beyond that point he has no       control. His invitation sets in motion a process that involves the       recipient in receiving, considering, deciding and then acting upon the       decision made. The recipient can decline at any stage in the process. If       he cannot, then he is being coerced, not invited.                      
       As       I have said in reply to another question there is no place in the events       of 2012 for coercion or mass survival strategies that will keep alive       frightened, negative people who will then succumb to disease. They are       better to die.               
       It       is anticipated that no more that 0.07 per cent of the world’s population       will receive and take up the invitation to survive the event of 2012. And       that is as it has to be.

       The       Externalisation of the Hierarchy 
       Question:        May       I humbly inquire as to why plans for the reappearance of the Christ, and       externalization of the Hierarchy (as described in the AAB books) were       seemingly abandoned? I ask not in the expectation of humanity being       "saved" from the coming events of 2012. But when the Christ,       working through the Initiate Jesus, performed miracles of healing, and       taught publicly, people listened and responded. Today, in the modern era,       the Christ and Masters would not be limited to the comparatively small       audience Jesus had due to local geography. Modern communication systems       would allow the Christ and Hierarchy to reach people all over the world. I       cannot believe their presence and teachings would be ignored by humanity.       Whether the response would have been sufficient to alter present events is       uncertain. But I am astonished that the attempt was not made by our
       Answer:  I       welcome this question, my brother, and although, at first, you will find       my words hard to bear, with acceptance will come release from an unhelpful       attachment. In asking this question publicly you are creating for others       too the chance of liberation. For this reason I thank you. Much turns upon       clearing up this misunderstanding, and so I do not address you alone but       all who wait.                            
       The       Hierarchy has externalised itself. We have come quietly and quickly into       the room whilst you have been intent upon another doorway.                            
       Over       a period of thirty years the Hierarchy has allowed its quality to be       externalised through       the identities who you call the Masters. This process was still on trial       when the Master DK spoke of Externalisation through Alice Bailey; but now       hundreds upon thousands of people know of the Lords of Sacrifice and how       they serve humanity.                             
       We       do not perceive ourselves as you see us. We are Agnishvattas, an       Intelligence. The Masters as you understand them are, to us, like hands,       hands extended in friendship for men and women to reach and hold. A hand       is simply a part of a body but those who can read a hand know that its       quality externalises the inner being. We have shown our hands.                            
       For       what purpose have we done this? Why have we extended our hands? So that       you can pull us down onto your level and have us entertain you with a       spectacle that you could see on a film? What would be the purpose of that       when the need is for you to learn to access our level?                            
       We       have externalised our quality through the Masters so that humankind can       more readily interact with us and establish a working relationship with       us. We are waiting for you to understand that the Externalisation of the       Hierarchy is for the purposes of guiding awakened people who are willing       to take responsibility and work on behalf of the evolution of human       consciousness, not to offer miracles and displays to those who remain sunk       in materialism. The days of that are long over.                             
       What       would it mean to you if the Hierarchy were to expend the unconscionable       amount of energy that it would take to engage with the dense physical       plane? You are surfeited with cinematic images of sights that defy logic.       Mankind has long since lost the ability to distinguish between the true       and the counterfeit. The miraculous means nothing to you. Within weeks the       Masters would be commonplace and you would be looking for something else       to excite you.                             
       More       impressive because they are so rare are acts of unstinting generosity,       true kindness and wisdom between men. Let those acts bear witness to a       higher reality.                            
       The       way to see us is through dedicated service because we recognise our own       kind. Mankind has to grow up and use its head. You will see us then.  My collaborator and I walk and talk together every morning at       an hour which many call ungodly. My brothers, if you but knew!                             
       There       are amongst you now other modest, hard working people who have understood       the nature of the invitation from the Hierarchy and are going about their       business of service, guided and informed by their Masters. They are trying       to show the way to others but mostly people look past them, in search of       more exotic teachers who, whilst valuable time is passing, would keep them       in a child-like state of dependence, fed on a diet of extravagant claims,       promises and astral titillation.              
       What       could we have achieved together had there been more people ready to work       and fewer waiting to be thrilled like children promised a visit to one of       your abominable circuses? How numerous are the solutions that we could       have found in these years?                            
       We       have not forgotten you and the Christ will never forget His pledge to       return but His place is the citadel of light in the human head and it is       not yet ready. Where are the workers? They are standing expectantly at the       door through which departed the Nazarene 2,000 years ago, broken by his       efforts on behalf of the unbelievers.        Are you so attached to spectacles that you would see this happen       again?                              
       No       my friends, in the Aquarian Age, mankind helps itself. It is for you now       to open the eyes of the unbelievers, by the example that you set in your       own lives, by the knowledge that you have been given and by the sacrifices       that you are able to make. This way you will also prepare the place for       the Christ’s return.                            
       The       Hierarchy will come no closer but we watch and we wait and we send our       messages of guidance and encouragement through those who have learned to       talk with us.                             
       Paul,       the great epistle writer, was one who learned, and in his Letter to the       Corinthians he said this:                            
       When       I was a child I spake as a child, I understood as a child, I thought as a       child; but when I became a man I put childish things away.                            
       I       say to you now put childish things away now and prepare yourself to join       forces with those who serve mankind. Now you see through a glass darkly       but then face to face.                             
       Preparing       ourselves and our young children
       Question:        I       just read the Red Letters. My heart (like Master KH says to hear them from       the heart) tells me that there is reality and truth in every word written       in them.              
       I       would like to ask a question though.              
       There       are no provisions in the introduction for parents like me to prepare       ourselves as well as our young children for this event (mentally,       spiritually, and physically). They (our children) are usually not fully       conscious of making decisions as monumental as that, and we usually make       the decisions for them (not always but most of the time).              
       Where       do we start?                            
       Answer:  My sister,                            
       Do       you not think that children have the knowingness of what must be? Do you       not think they will enjoy the adventure?                             
       Do       not fill them with your own fears. Infants are in the Arien stage of life;       they will run on ahead. Be strong for them and let them guide you in the       choices that you have to make. They know more than you know. That       statement may be taken two ways, and both meanings apply here.                            
       Deal       with the matter as you would any other: as it comes up and when the       occasion requires. Permit your children take what they hear from you into       the playground and circulate it in their own way. By this means awareness       will be extended. There will be many adults who will come to hear of the       developments of 2012 for the first time from their children, and others       again who will throw off apathy and defeatism because of them.                             
       There       will be children playing on the eve of destruction and on the morning       after! In that unquenchable spirit is the hope of mankind.                            
       When       you see the illustration now in preparation for the sign Aries*, place the       image of your children on those steps, running towards the portal. In that       scene you will find your answer and the inspiration for which you seek.                            
       Share       this with your sisters.

       Duration       and timing
       Question: I'm       trying to assess the viability of survival strategies for 2012 additional       to that offered in the Introduction to the Red Letters. It seems implicit       that the Earth's baptism will be of short duration if the animals and the       vegetable kingdom are to survive. Would K.H tell us more about the       duration and timing of the twin processes of Earth's axial realignment and       the land's inundation by water? Will the inundation be from the sky or       from the sea?              
       Answer:  Earth is moving: it moves ceaselessly in       space, spinning on its access and moving around the Sun. Man does not       experience this movement directly but through its effects. So it will be       with the axis shift of 2012. It is not how long it takes to for the Earth       to change the angle of its axis that is of significance to man – he will       not be aware of that whether it takes a minute, a day, or longer, but how       long it takes him to adjust to the effects of this movement; and this will       depend upon many things, not least how well prepared he is physically and       spiritually.              
       Earth       will continue to support life through this process and after it but       intelligent life will have to find out how and where. Animals and birds       will follow their instincts, man will have to organise himself around what       he knows, organizing also the domestic animals and, to some degree, the       vegetable kingdom.              
       For       the Earth this is the start of a new cycle. All the geographical changes       that occur will become features of that new cycle, as will the chain of       reactions to those changes. It is not therefore a matter of either ‘from       the sea or from the sky’: it will be both in different places at       different times, although the seas will be the first to register the       effects of the axis shift and the corresponding change in the moon’s       orbital relationship with our planet.              
       The       amount of time involved in the Earth’s cleansing and healing is too       great for the human mind to grasp. The effect of it will be that assisting       Earth will become part of the human experience and, in consequence,       formative of human consciousness.              
       To       view the events of 2012 as a disaster from which a familiar order will       eventually re- emerge is quite inadequate. The present, familiar order       will be gone for ever. Never again will man be able to take our planet for       granted and to exploit its life forms in the way that he has done. The       inability of so many to engage meaningfully with the realisation that the       present order is about to be destroyed is a consequence of        the presumptuous belief that nothing on this scale could possibly       be allowed to happen to them.              
       Man’s       immediate concern is to work out how to organise himself in the safe       zones. With this the Hierarchy will help all we can but we have to tread       very carefully and give out information with great circumspection because       there is still time for selfish interests to spoil the opportunities for       human life that exist in those places.               
                   The                   dissolution of material things and pollution                                                                            
                   Question: What                   will become of all the material things that humanity has                   created over the last 150 years? Will they dissolve in time?                   What about the nuclear plants and other toxic waste...if they                   are submerged in the oceans will the oceans be this                   something that will have to dealt with? Will this event                   disrupt the satellites in the atmosphere?                                      
                   Answer:  This                   is a useful question, my sister, both in itself and in the                   opportunity that it provides for me to make clear a point upon                   which at present there is much confusion.                                                                            
                   What                   has been brought into being on the physical plane has to work                   itself out in time and in accordance with its quality. This is                   nature of the experience which Earth supports and 2012 will                   not change this.                                                                             
                   Responsibility                   has never been a feature of satellite technology, still less                   nuclear processing, and is unlikely to enter the situation now                   to help lessen the devastating effect of the pollution and                   other dangers connected to the loss of control of aerial                   objects and nuclear installations. What will end with 2012,                   however, is the creation of new causes of this kind of                   contamination. This will leave Nature able to find her own                   solutions, uncompromised by the profit motive or the other                   considerations which have made men so wilfully blind to the                   consequences of what they are unleashing upon the environment                   and upon future generations.                                                                             
                   This                   undeniably bleak picture of pollution and contamination                   post-2012 is the consequence of the outworking of man’s                   values and priorities of modern times, and not of the axis                   shift. The shift is a part of Earth’s evolution, an event                   foretold that could have occurred without the attendant                   man-made hazards, which are of a scale which makes it                   inevitable that they will kill as many people as the                   geographical changes themselves.                                                                             
                   If                   you are clear about this distinction you will be able to                   understand how without being in any way the cause of the shift                   itself, man is creating the physical conditions with which he                   must then contend.  Those                   who will see this will be able to understand much about free                   will and of the need to exercise choice responsibly and                   purposefully throughout their lives.                                                                            
                   At                   the present time there are in incarnation three generations                   who should have been born into and brought up with this                   awareness, but because thinking has remained insistently                   self-centred and self-deceiving, only a very few individuals                   understand as yet that personal salvation is a contradiction                   in terms. The truth is that we are one with each other and one                   with the Earth.                                                                             
                   As                   I have said elsewhere, never again will man be able to harm                   the environment in the way that he is doing at present because                   Earth will no longer support those who in their thinking                   cannot embrace the planet as a whole. Quite simply, their                   vibration will be too low.                                                                            
                   Lessons                   learned late are often lesson learned hard but because of this                   they impress consciousness in ways that mean they are never                   forgotten. It is for this reason that 2012 represents the                   start of new era for mankind.
                   Domestic                   animals                                                                            
                   Question: I                   just wanted to add that I have pondered on the latest posting                   but really would like to have some more specific clues from KH                   on how to organize relations to the different domestic                   animals. Beside it is hard to imagine that fishing as a food                   source and even meat is something we can do without.                                                                            
                   It                   is as if some "outside" help will be greatly needed                   if we should be able to set a new course in this, even if we                   take the initial steps ourselves. It seems we just have to                   trust this.                                      
                   Answer:  After                   2012, mankind’s relationship with the animal kingdom will                   become more detached as, in the new era, the animals’                   evolution will take them out of the Earth system.                    This does not mean that there will not be animals on                   Earth, nor that they will not be irresistibly attracted to man                   as a means of learning, but that the relationship will be                   based upon what man does not                   do to them i.e. what he leaves them free to do when he no                   longer eats their flesh or exploits them. And a human race                   with its heart centre open will do neither.                                                                             
                   Then,                   man’s primary relationship will be with the vegetable                   kingdom which will feed him and which he will nurture. The                   evolution of the vegetable kingdom will accelerate as a result                   of this in ways that we have seen foreshadowed at Findhorn in                   Scotland.                                                                            
                   As                   regards domestic animals in the                    context of 2012 you must do what you think best,                   bearing always in mind that there are few things that men can                   do for animals which they, obeying their instincts, cannot do                   for themselves.                                      
       KH        2005              
                   The Religion of the Future                                                                            
                   Question:                   In                   your introduction, under the Spirituality of Man, you tell us                   that the religion of the future will be based upon the                   recognition and reverence of the Intelligences residing in                   each of the twelve signs, and upon encouraging co-operation                   with them.                                                                                                
                   I                   am wondering whether there will be an Avatar for this new age,                   as before, at the start of the Piscean age, when the Lord                   Jesus laid down the Christian principles that became a                   religion for the past 2000 years.                    If guidance for this New Age does not come in the form                   of an Avatar, how then will we be made aware of this new                   religion? You have said before that there will not be a Savior                   as we must save ourselves, but will there be a teacher who                   leads the way?                                      
                   Answer:  Mankind                   always has been provided with the teachers that it needs. This                   most necessary service undertaken by the Hierarchy has never                   failed; nor will it fail at any time in the future.                                      
                   The                   teachers that you will need after 2012 will be with you then.                   You may depend upon it. Whether they will conform to what now                   you envision is another matter. Teachers meet the requirements                   of the time by expressing the aspect of Truth that serves it                   the best.                                      
                   That                   so much of mankind feels bereft, vulnerable and distrustful is                   a consequence of an attachment to his impressions, often quite                   erroneous, of the kind of teachers who came to serve the needs                   of a different time. In this matter, as in all areas of life,                   men restrict themselves by their preconceptions and                   attachments, with the results that upon this most bounteous                   planet they will not believe that they have enough of what                   they need nor recognise and trust the voices that would guide                   them.                                      
                   Many                   are now saying  that                   when  there are so                   many false teachers, it is difficult to know to whom to give                   attention; therefore they await some distant time when who are                   the true teachers will be a self-evident matter.                                      
                   It                   is evident now, my brothers. Listen! It is all in the sound.                   Did you not learn by listening how to distinguish between your                   child’s cry of real need and the attention seeking grizzle;                   between the different sounds of the full and empty vessel?                    Often distrust, disenchantment and sentimental                   attachment are serving the part of self that does not want to                   have to commit to anything that might disrupt the familiar                   materialistic round. Men fail to hear what they fear to hear.                                      
                   The                   teachers that you need now are amongst you now and their work                   is to prepare you mentally and to position yourselves                   physically in order to engage with those who are to come.                    The steps to the future are made from the substance of                   the present time.
                   My                   collaborator knows something of the arrangements and is at                   liberty to write about them outside of these Letters.                                      
                   Suffice                   it to say here that after 2012 the teaching will be of two                   kinds. Man will be taught:                                      
                   1.How                   to become responsible inhabitants of the planet and how to                   hear and to respond to the Earth’s needs.
                   2.The                    principles of the new religion.                                      
                   The                   first will precede the other in time, and men will graduate                   from planetary service to understanding principles that, as                   they enlarge the capacity of their hearts and minds, will open                   the door to possibility. The teachers that are needed for each                   of these stages will be available at the appropriate time.                                                                             
                   August                   2005
                   Accessing Knowledge                                                                            
                   Question:                   The                   many experimental community projects, such as Findhorn, being                   conducted around the world and based on the philosophy of                   permaculture seem to indicate the way we all will live post                   2012, but the subject is so vast - if studied down to a                   practical level - that no individual or small group can hope                   to master it. A wide distribution of specialist knowledge will                   force us to cooperate if we are to do more than simply                   survive, and each of us it seems must specialise in a                   different field in order to make a useful contribution to the                   whole. What worries me is that specialist knowledge of a vital                   and practical nature is still in relatively few hands. But                   assuming that that knowledge and co-operation will exist after      
             2012, how can the practice of permaculture help a vegetarian                   humanity in the lands above 65 degrees north where plant life                   is inhibited by an inhospitable environment? With less than                   eight years to go, what steps must we take to 'prepare the                   ground' for human habitation?                                      
                   Answer:  I                   welcome this question, my brother, both for itself and for the                   opportunity to deal with a wider matter that it creates for me                   at this time.                                                                             
                   Firstly, I will deal with the content of the question.                                                                            
                   Each                   of you who would live through the events of 2012 must become                   more familiar with the practice of distinguishing between what                   you can change and what you cannot change. At present there is                   much unrealistic thinking in this area. On the one hand there                   are those talking about trying to avert the events, and on the                   other there are those waiting for orders from some unspecified                   source. Neither of these extremes represents a suitable                   response.                                                                            
                   It                   is for each person to clarify his intention and to take                   personal responsibility for his decision. The greater the                   number of individuals taking personal responsibility, then the                   greater the opportunity for humanity collectively. Eight years                   is not a long time if only a handful of people are actively                   involved in preparations for 2012, but each of you is a                   resource. If 100 people are actively involved then you have 8                   years x 100; if 1,000 then the time available increases to 8                   years x 1,000, and so on.                                                                                                
                   If                   you consider that there is a need for more knowledge to be                   made available, whether the subject area is permaculture or                   any other, take the responsibility to seek out that knowledge                   yourself, or directly assist another to find it. The knowledge                   exists to be found and such initiatives could be coordinated                   by this project.                                                                             
                   The                   reason it is in the hands of so few is less to do with that                   knowledge being withheld, and more with the consequence of so                   few people being ready to accept responsibility. No matter how                   it may appear to you, the real problem is not lack of detailed                   knowledge but the lack of interest that is restricting its                   circulation. And it will remain deprived of its rightful value                   for as long as so many of those who are aware of 2012 are                   distracting themselves with foolish expectations of salvation                   or opportunities to escape from material reality. Such ideas                   do not come from the Hierarchy, my brothers. Why would we                   encourage you to find hope in mirages when the price of these                   fantasies is inertia and a lack of readiness? In                   the Age of
 Aquarius man saves himself by what he knows.                                                                             
                   Cooperation                   and organisation are features of Aquarian activity. There will                   be large areas of land in the more southerly latitudes capable                   of supplying food stuffs to those in the North to supplement                   the production achieved by the application of knowledge to                   this seemingly unpromising terrain. The Hierarchy will not yet                   release details about the southern locations because the                   necessary organisations are not in place. What are these                   ‘necessary organisations’? They are groupings of                   responsible, committed, clear- thinking individuals capable of                   acting in the common good and not simply their own selfish                   interests. As yet such individuals do not exist in numbers                   sufficient to make up the needed organisations.                                     
                   This                   brings me to the second point that I would make on this                   occasion. One of the consequences of this lack of readiness is                   that, having conceived the idea of what has become known as                   the Red Letters project, the Hierarchy, in full awareness of                   what a serious burden upon their time and resources it would                   prove to be, had no choice but to place the new undertaking                   with people who were already carrying a weight of                   responsibility. As there was no help for it we did not waste                   time in regret, any more than those at the DK Foundation, upon                   whom the administration of this project has fallen, have                   wasted time in complaint. All true servers know that their own                   comfort is not a consideration. The fact remains, however,                   that those
 involved in this project cannot be discharged from                   certain prior commitments, as important in their own way as                   this, and so it has been agreed amongst us that from September                   onwards they should be released from this undertaking for a                   period of some four months in order to attend to those duties.                   During this time there will be no further communications from                   me by means of this platform.                                                                            
                   This                   four month period will create a useful intermission during                   which those who have read the communications to date can get                   over the inevitable initial shock and become more familiar                   with the content of the Red Letters.                                                                            
                   In                   the New Year (2006) we will start Phase Two with, it is to be                   hoped, some more questions. Should there not be any suitable                   questions put forward for the New Year then Phase Two will be                   held up. To mask the lack of intelligent interest would serve                   no useful purpose. Better by far that we allow the true state                   of play to be seen and for that to deliver its own harsh                   message.                                                                            
                   My                   brothers, this is not the time for soothing words but for                   throwing out challenges. Spirit has ever challenged form to                   yield up the highest of which it is capable. If it did not                   there would not be evolution, not of form itself nor of the                   indwelling consciousness.                                                           In service, KH

     The Exteriorization of the     Christ
     Question:     When     you tell us about the secure places upper the 65° , and like in the north     it coincide with the Artic Polar Circle, we must suppose in the south of the     world it is similar and coincide with the Antarctic Polar Circle? (for to     search the lands which can be secures); and in consideration to the work of     the Hierarchy and the Christ, the success of 2012, in what changes the Plan     for His exteriorization, and if this success can be stopped by an spiritual     progress of the Humanity or it is irremediable.  Thank you for your     attention               
     JMN     Argentina.                    
     My brother,           
     There is no     other location on Earth for the Christ but that provided by the hearts of     men. The human heart is the place of the Second Coming, so long expected and     so widely misunderstood by those who are delaying, awaiting the arrival of     another saviour.          
     Those who     incarnate into the Earth system after 2012 will have achieved their own     salvation through their understanding that, born of the union of the Father     with the Mother, of spirit with substance, Christ, the Son, is     consciousness. His qualities are Love, Hope and Compassion. It is by making     these qualities their own, men are preparing the place and bringing the Son     to Earth to help make ready for the coming of the Father. It is for this     that you are praying with the words: May Christ return to Earth.          
     By whatever     name you call him, the Father is coming to establish himself in the citadel     of the head, and man then will serve His purpose which is Will and Power.     Yet His feet never will touch the Earth unless men make their own feet     available to him. It is for this that humanity is now being prepared; this     is the purpose that the events of 2012 will serve.          
     The Antarctic     is not for conscious men, my brother. The life that it will support, for a     time at least, will be the last desperate remnants of the old order. Leave     it to them. There are other places in the southern hemisphere that will     better support one whose heart is as open as your own You will be apprised     of them at the right time.

Vera Zelihovsky, H.P.B.�s sister, also had something to say about the actual level of brain activity in those who slander the founder of the theosophical movement.   
Referring to H.P.B., Vera wrote in a 1886 letter:
�As to her being a spy of the Russian Government � it�s such a gross imposture, and nonsense, that not one sensible man in  the world will pay attention to it, I am sure. Her opponents must surely well know that this sort of trouble  is well paid for. If she had been in the �service�, she would not be obliged now, in her old age and ilness, to labour for bread�s sake.  It is a monstrous calumny, and Mr. Sinnett may well throw it in the face of her stupid enemies.�  (1)
