Awakening the Higher Mind and Intuition Through the use of Symbols
Presented by Duane Carpenter
The primary objective of this series of webinars is to awaken the higher mind and the intuition and not necessarily to impart large volumes of information however important as a foundational base. Information is only useful if it eventually leads the student to an expansion of consciousness or changes in the inner sheaths or bodies. We must see the occult path and all of its allied information as a synthesis and how the isolated parts can be brought together into a more organic whole.

Duane has a new Awakening the Higher Mind and Intuition facebook group for questions and sharing experiences that create a bridge between his webinars.  Group work takes on a life of its own through the group mind, group will, and group heart; and this helps build highways between the group and the Masters to facilitate the One Work and to bring these abstract ideas down into a concrete presentation.

Awakening the Higher Mind 13, presented by Duane Carpenter, held on Mar 23, 2019. Duane discussed the 6-fold Ray Charts of individuals, and the associations of the predominant colors of the different rays. Many of us know (or suspect) what are Soul and Personality Rays are, but only a few have an idea of what their Monadic Ray might be. Even if we have a good understanding of our 6-fold rays, each of the vehicles will have a sub-ray, so it can complicate the sub-tone or sub-color of our ray make up. Another factor Duane discussed is that as you become more and more integrated, the rays begin to overlap and blend in your ray chart. They are basically spherical in nature, nesting within each other. There are electrical forces that form discreate bands but as we evolve and radiate more and more, they leap to the next octave. He demonstrated this with an image of the 6-fold spherical chart, blended and blurred, taking on a new look, synthesized together. He also discussed the different points of light within a soul group, ashram, or Ray Ashram and how multitudes of egoic groups form interlocking, radiant yet diverse groups. All members of the human family are grouped according to their rhythm, quality, light, magnetic influence, radiation, and activity. And just as the Master can tell the status of a disciple by viewing his rayological constitution, so can the Planetary Logos tell the status of the various Ray Ashrams and groups who are accomplishing his Divine Plan.

Awakening the Higher Mind 12, presented by Duane Carpenter, held on Feb 24, 2019. Duane discussed the Divine Feminine and Warrior Spirit, and the Son, where fire and water meet. One of our long-term goals of evolution is to invoke the Divine Will side of our nature. First we work on the lower triad within our nature (Physical-Etheric, Astral, and Lower Mind) which is feminine in nature. Then we work on the upper triad (Manas, Buddhi, Atma) that is masculine and under the direction of the Spiritual Will. Establishing a vortex is key in this process, as the soul cries aloud and penetrates into the formless world, evoking a response from the higher triad. The dual sound creates a vortex that allows the two to touch and mingle and become one. (EA 327). Both will and desire are force emanations; even though they differ in quality and vibration. They are essentially currents of energy, one forming an initial vortex or center of activity that is centrifugal and the other centripetal, and matter is then accreted into form around the central vortex. This holds true for all form building for gods, men, and atoms. (TCF 1018-19). There are a myriad of geometric shapes within our constitution that are formed with various centers as we evolve, and astrologers of the future will cast horoscopes that explore these geometrical lines, the “geometry of the individual.” As each line functions in relation to another line, the energies will become apparent and eventually the “Star will shine forth.” TWM 440—1).

Awakening the Higher Mind 11, presented by Duane Carpenter, held on Jan 26, 2019. Duane reviewed the importance of the three crosses from last webinar and how they relate to the progress a disciple makes.  He discussed the importance of developing Divine Will.  He also discussed the seven meditations Master DK gives to his disciples in DINA II (179-193), and how he showed his disciples the sequence of critical points in the life of a man training for initiation, including the crosses, the vertical life of the aspirant and horizontal live of service.  The point where the crosses intersect represents the disciple’s personality; the long limb of the cross indicated the disciple must go down into the depths of human life to prepare the masses for the externalization of the Hierarchy; and the sphere at the summit of the cross portrays the disciple’s conscious activity in the Ashram.

Awakening the Higher Mind 10, presented by Duane Carpenter, held on Dec 22, 2018. Duane opened with a comment from Alice Bailey reminding us that the Master’s ashram is not on the mental plane and that one of the things we have to do is develop intuition.  He then discussed Capricorn and the skill and balance required of the goat who scales the mountain of initiation.  The horns are symbols of duality and dual rotary motion evoked in the image he shared with electrical discharges and the Tree of Life coming out of the horns; all initiation is a transition into a new electrical experience, as shown with the 2 vortices in the image representing Ray 3 and Ray 7 energies of Capricorn.  These dual vortices relate to the right and left channels of the spine, the Ida and Pingala, and when fused they release the great Kundalini force that begins at the third Initiation.  The central channel of kundalini, the sushuma is symbolized by the unicorn’s golden horn.  He demonstrated through animated graphics that the mountain top is a symbol of a vortex.  He also discussed Saturn’s influence in the first 5 initiations, and discussed the 3 astrological crosses.

Awakening the Higher Mind 9, presented by Duane Carpenter, held on Nov 17, 2018. Duane began with a discussion on the usefulness of the new Facebook page on Awakening the Higher Mind and the growing interaction between students of the Ageless Wisdom, some new to it and others who have studied for many years.  You can find it at https://www.facebook.com/groups/2167738123497445/.  Then he discussed the 12 faces of the zodiac seen as a dodecahedron, providing several short stimulating videos and some research done by scientists who are speculating that the universe might be shaped as a dodecahedron.  As a Treatise on Cosmic Fire tells us on p396-7, “when the esoteric side of astrology and of mystical geometry has been studied, and alliance has been made between these two sciences, a flood of light will be thrown upon this matter of the intelligent principle. . . .”

Awakening the Higher Mind 8, presented by Duane Carpenter, held on Oct 13, 2018. Duane began with a discussion on how the Hierarchy is attempting to impress upon Humanity a uniformity of approach through the use of color, sound, and symbols.  This can be done by observing astrological alignments like Full Moon meditations, viewing occult symbols, or telepathic connections.  Triangles are important in this work, yet they must be considered as more than just the 3 static points; they interface with other triangles and create an undulating, palpitating grid that is moving all the time.  The entire cosmic web and solar system is an interwoven series of triangles that are organic, are subject to all kinds of forces, and can connect with other triangles on different levels, all fluid and ever-changing.  Duane explained that you cannot access the abstract mind and intuition until you striate your mental vehicle.  As he’s previously demonstrated, the planes are electrified fields with alternating polarity, and movement between them is through this polarity.  He also talked about the 12 zodiacal potencies, the 12 faces of God, and how the 12 must become the blended 6 brought about by a process of tension, crisis, and then emergence (the fusion of the polar opposites).  Gemini is key in this process, and is referred to as the “constellation of the resolution of duality into a fluid synthesis.”  He ended the presentation with an excerpt from the Stanzas of Dzyan about wheels turning within wheels, great triangles, and the fiery vortices they create with their rapid movement (the Wheels-within-Wheels meditation video is extracted below for ease of viewing).

Awakening the Higher Mind 7, presented by Duane Carpenter, held on Sep 15, 2018. Duane discussed our etheric system and centers, and how they are connected, then expanded that thought to show that plasma connects us to everyone in the world, as a web of electrical circuitry connects all in nature.  Through new technology like infrared cameras, we can see things we’ve never been able to see before, including the plasma grid and electrical connections in all things; plasma is the crossover that connects it all.  Duane discussed human evolution and the 7 Rays and 7 Planes in relation to their polarity in terms of shifting and evolving dualities.  For example, when we study the 1st Initiation we learn that the Sacral center is transferred to the Throat center at this initiation.  At first the Sacral center is positive, but when the Throat is activated the polarity switches and the Throat center become positive and the Sacral center becomes negative.  So it’s important to look at the electrical polarity at each stage of human development.  He discussed the etheric grid of the Planetary Logos as being one of loose squares (that of a non-sacred planet); with the loose grid of squares, seepage occurs.  The Logos and Humanity are working on coordinating our etheric bodies and converting the grid of loose squares into a tight grid of triangles enabling the light to become exponentially brighter.  He demonstrated that the grid is multidimensional and spherical, as are the triangles that form it, and our etheric body is in constant motion.  These are moving triangles that are alive and organic, and every time we participate in a Triangles meditation we strengthen this work, for both ourselves as well as the planet. He wrapped up the webinar with a meditation on Leo, the Way of Fire, and the affirmation from Light of the Soul page 209.

Awakening the Higher Mind 6, presented by Duane Carpenter, held on Aug 11, 2018. Duane introduced us to an exploratory look at Synthesis and Astrology in this webinar, highlighting the websites and work of Walter Pullen (https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jFhwfM0FKCo), and Dj Sadhu (https://www.djsadhu.com/research/solar-system-2-0-science-friction/).   Both websites demonstrate the nature of motion in our solar system and galaxy, with the planets revolving in their various cycles around the Sun, the motion of the Sun itself, as well as movement of the entire system moving through space.  This motion is spiral cyclic and creates helix patterns.  Duane talked about the importance of these visual interpretations, seeing it not only in the 3-dimensional presentations by these 2 gifted artists, then that set in motion, which helps us understand astrology better than we ever have been able to envision it before.  It not only expands our mental appreciation, but also gives it a whole new opening for intuitive perception, especially when used in the nature of meditations.  Duane also discussed Laniakea, where scientists are redrawing the boundaries of the cosmic map because of their recent breakthroughs in understanding superclusters (regions of space densely packed with galaxies) and how those galaxies flow across space.  He also talked stars in our galaxy like Proxima Centauri emitting solar flares producing immense energy.  Master DK talks in Esoteric Psychology Vol I, p103-104 about an intensification of light going on all the time, and it will profoundly affect the human eye and make etheric vision possible, telling us “It will bring within the radius of our range of contact the infra-red and ultra-violet gamut of colours, and we shall see what at present is hidden.”  Duane finished up the evening’s discussion with information on triangles and astrology, and how the triangles found in the etheric body of man relate to other sphere’s of action like the entire universal pattern.

Awakening the Higher Mind 5, presented by Duane Carpenter, held on Jul 7, 2018. Duane continued his exploratory look at Laya Yoga, the Science of Triangles, the Planes, and the Rays. Duane discussed Etheric evolution, and how the Buddha grounded Triadal energy on the Mental Plane, Jesus and the Christ brought it down to the Astral Plane 2,000 years ago, and the Christ will bring it down onto the Physical-Etheric levels this cycle, where forms are created and reside. This is part of the incoming cycle of synthesis of the Aquarian Age and the work of Uranus and the Seventh Ray. He discussed different shades of violet and their correspondences in man’s Etheric body. As an example of the statement “As above, so below” he demonstrated that the 4 higher sub-planes of the Cosmic Physical Plane reflect in the Personality of man through the higher human etheric subplanes. He explained polarity of the planes and rays, and showed how energy gets caught up in small eddies that relate to the human chakra system and auric field. He also discussed the nature of an atom’s interaction with another atom, relating the nature of science to occult teachings.

Awakening the Higher Mind 4, presented by Duane Carpenter, held on Jun 2, 2018. Duane continued his exploratory look at Laya Yoga, the Science of Triangles, the Planes, and the Rays. He reviewed his previous discussion about the descent of color, the 7 Rays as qualities of life and discussed them in relation to motion, vortices as points of tension, and petal formation. He discussed the circular motion of the 3rd Logos, spiral-cyclic motion of the 2nd Logos, and progressive motion of the 1st Logos, then talked about the Law of the Supplementary 7 and the multitudes of radiant groups that form an interlocking whole, all working in unison, He discussed the A.U.M. and the interplay between the centers below the diaphragm and those above it, and how their transference activates the heart, throat, and ajna centers leading to true esoteric endeavors and creative work on the subtle planes. He presented a variety of images and videos on the study of 8s superimposed upon each other, demonstrating the form-building aspect of divinity through their activity of bringing the outer forms into manifestation.

Awakening the Higher Mind 3, presented by Duane Carpenter, held on Apr 13, 2018. Duane continued his exploratory look at Laya Yoga and its relationship to Esoteric Astrology, the Science of Triangles. He discussed going beyond holograms and the future potential of 3-dimensional presentations, virtual reality goggles, and the ability to rotate images 360 degrees for a full view similar to work being done now with medical students and imaging of human bodies. He elaborated on the descent of color from one common source, differentiating into other colors; and the relationship between the 7 Rays, 7 musical notes, and 7 exoteric and esoteric colors, based on the information Master D.K. gives in his teachings and how it all relates to the entire universal patterns. He switched to a new webinar format for this presentation that better accommodates his video and audio presentations within his webinars, so his animations were much better this month than they have been in the past. Note: the video picture is blank for the first few minutes as BL discusses the new format and raising hands and sending chat messages. Once Duane begins his presentation and shows his screen, the picture begins.

Awakening the Higher Mind 2, presented by Duane Carpenter, held on Mar 23, 2018. Duane continued his exploratory look at Laya Yoga and its relationship to Esoteric Astrology, the Science of Triangles, and how planetary and solar triangles have their counterpart in the human constitution or chakra system. He also discussed the Laws of Attraction, Law of Correspondences, the Macrocosm and Microcosm, as well as circular ray charts of the 7 Planes and 7 Rays, based on the information Master D.K. gives in his teachings and how it all relates to the entire universal patterns. Of particular interest was his demonstration of how energy is fluid and in motion, using the 7 Rays as examples in his animations.
