Frank, Jerry, et al,
All the occult teachings are in the Book of Dzyan, and in the Secret
Doctrine commentaries by HPB -- if one knows how to read through the
"blinds" -- by intuitively seeing "in and around the words and
between the lines" -- as well as properly understanding the formula
(in plain sight) in the BofD. ("The Three, The One, The Four, the
One, The Five, The Twice Seven, The Sum Total")
For a direct geometric holographic interpretation of all the globes
and rounds (12 after the triune Supreme Spiritual field itself) and
why it was necessary for HPB to stress only the seven fold system, as
it directly applies to Man's inner nature -- See; "How It All Began" at:
(Note: if any illustration link results in a "Forbidden" window,
simply copy and re-paste (or highlight) link in browser and re-enter.)
Note that pairs of globes are inside surrounding globes -- which
accounts for the sum total of 14 primary globes (of which, the first
two constitute the inner nature of the Supreme Spirit... (That,
incidentally, was pointed out by WQJ as "NOT being "Atma" or
the"Spirit in Man")... Thus, explaining why GdeP spoke only of 12
globes pertaining to the cosmos after the initial 'Supreme Spirit"
triune field or first Logos -- which stands outside of the lower 12
Although, the seven globes, rounds and races on the physical/material
plane are, for all practical purposes, all that is necessary to
know-- (since these pertain to the lower 7 of the overall 14)...
Remember, a hologram contains all the information of the whole in
every zero-point of whatever matrix it is encoded in -- "as above, so
HPB also indicated the overall holographic, fractal involved,
harmonically cyclic nature of the cosmos, when she said (A) it was
like "wheels within wheels", (B) that everything could be explained
by "analogy and correspondence'. and (C) that all of it was
"electrical in nature". And, she even predicted all the changing
paradigms of modern and post modern physics --up to the latest
multidimensional (11 and more "hyperspace" field) string, quantum
field, and M-brane theories.. See:
Anyone can see that the Masters and HPB did not actually hold back
anything from the really intuitive student (other than the method of
using will to correlate the forces). And, they expected the whole
truth to be exposed before the end of the 20th Century in preparation
for a universal awakening in this century -- which should be about
the time the mass of sixth sub-racers begin to appear and be
noticed. That's why the Masters could retire long before CWL, AAB,
and other pseudo theosophists began spouting their distortions.
So let's keep watch, and do our best to welcome the newcomers by
spread broadcasting the fundamental teachings of theosophy they need
to know (while warning them of the false prophets and blind religious
beliefs that would lead them astray).
Apparently, the hints were given out right from the beginning -- with
the expectation that only the "intuitive student" would get it.
