Laws of the Soul Webinar Commentary 25 covers EP II pages 193-200, and is about three hours long. Topics include: 1): presentation of five statements touching on the relationship between outer groups and their prototypical inner groups; 2): the fourth of five statements describing the nature of the newly forming groups: Statement 4: “They are also an experiment which has for its objective the manifestation of certain types of energy which will produce cohesion, or an at-one-ment, upon earth.”; 3): for review, Statements 1, 2, 3 are as follows: Statement 1: “They are an experiment in founding or starting focal points in the human family through which certain energies can flow out into the entire race of men. These energies are ten in number.”; Statement 2: “They are an experiment in inaugurating certain new techniques in work and in modes of communication.”; Statement 3: “They are the externalisation of an inner existing condition”; 4): new energies must be imposed upon energies which over the centuries have established a definite momentum; 5): the new emerging groups must establish harmony amongst themselves; 6): presentation of a new section: “Astrology and the New Groups”; 7): the Law of Group Progress swept into greater power in May, 1936; 8): the Law of Group Progress produces coherence in the units of a group, for good or for ill; 9): within any group thus affected “The recognitions eventuating are those of group affinity, group objective, and group goal.”; 10): one of the factors inducing coherence amongst the units of these new emerging groups is “group idealism”; 11): the members of such groups can register in the brain that which the soul has imparted; 12): the augmentation in December of 1935 of the energies of the constellation Capricorn by the energies of a still greater constellation; 13): discussion of the possible magnitude of this constellation and of the analogy given—that it is to our zodiac what the zodiac is the Earth!; 14): the possible meaning of the revolution of our entire zodiac of constellations around a cosmic center; 15): the availability of Capricornian energies throughout the coming Aquarian Age; 16): discussion of the Festival Week of the New Group of World Servers as a “week of group impact” of the energies of Capricorn; 17): the potency of the Capricorn Full Moon if it falls within the Festival Week of the New Group of World Servers; 18): if there are three members of the New Group of World Servers in any outer group that outer group can be considered connected to the inner group of New Group of World Servers; 19): the membership of the New Group of World Servers is most closely linked on the mental plane; 20): for an individual to become a conscious functioning member of the New Group of World Servers the following requirements are necessary: a): his awakened heart center must be rapidly linked with the heart centers of eight other individuals; groups of nine awakened aspirants can be consciously absorbed into the heart center of the Planetary Logos; b): “The head centre must also be in process of awakening, and the ability to ‘hold the mind steady in the light’ must be somewhat developed.”; c): “Some forms of creative activity must likewise be found and the server must be active along some humanitarian, artistic, literary, philosophic or scientific lines.”; 21): the head, heart and throat centers of such disciples will be linked; this will increasingly be the case for humanity as a whole; thus “triangles of fiery light” will be formed; 22): all this indicates the “Way of Group Progress”; 23): there follows an illuminating tabulation summarizing the first five Laws of the Soul: discussed are the law, the effect, the general physical effect, the inner psychological reaction and the quality developed through the expression of each of these five laws; 24): in this tabulation, new and illuminating information is given which sheds additional light on everything said bout the Laws of the Soul in the sections dedicated to the explanation of these laws; 25): a brief, speculative analysis of the Law of Expansive Response; 26): a brief speculative analysis of the Law of the Lower Four; 27): these laws apply to those who have direct connect to the inner archetypal prototypical groups of which the outer groups are an expression; 28): the coming of an era of peace to humanity—a peace based upon spiritual understanding and not upon an astral condition; 29): discussion of the emergence of the soul qualities—serenity and joy; 30): “These two qualities of the soul—serenity and joy—are the indications that the soul, the ego, the One Who stands alone, is controlling or dominating the personality, circumstance, and all environing conditions of life in the three worlds.”

Topics include: 1): “The Characteristics of the New Groups”; 2): the outer organization of the New Group of World Servers is fine, nebulous, tenuous; 3): the group is held together by an inner structure of thought and telepathic relationship; 4): within the membership of the New Group of World Servers there is both a diversity of outer life and soul life; 5): the etheric nature of the members of the New Group of World Servers is one of the paramount factors holding this group together; 6): the members of the Spiritual Hierarchy of our planet is called an “inner group of Thinkers”; 7): this inner group is divided into seven major divisions; 8): the new outer groups are externalizations of groups which have hitherto operated only subjectively, inspired by the Hierarchy; 9): there is increasingly a trend in humanity towards cohesion and integration and it is this which contributes to the possibility of the emergence of outer groups which reflect the nature and function of the inner groups; 10): subjective relationships determine the cohesion of outer relationships; these subjective relationships must be based on soul contact; 11): the new emerging outer groups are slowly forming “pattern-groups”; 12): prospective members of the new, emerging pattern-groups are tested and tried in many ways; membership in such groups is difficult; 13): there is underway, a great group-training experiment initiated by the Spiritual Hierarchy; 14): mutual love, life and interplay characterize a Master’s group in the inner side of life; can the outer groups demonstrate similar characteristics; the Masters are evaluating this; 15): the inner groups are unencumbered by the physical body; the effort is now being made to see of outer groups can be properly related; the encumbrance of the physical body makes this more difficult; 16): in the new groups, the astral-brain reactions should be regarded as non-existent; 17): the emphasis is on mental and egoic relations; 18): the next section presents material on the experimental nature of the groups; 19): the experiment concerning the new groups is fourfold in nature; 20): the first two descriptions of the nature of these groups is as follows: a) “They are an experiment in founding or starting focal points in the human family through which certain energies can flow out into the entire race of men. “; b) “They are an experiment in inaugurating certain new techniques in work and in modes of communication”; 20): there follows a description of ten groups which are roughly identical to the list of the Ten Seed Groups found in DINA I; 21): in some cases the words used are exactly those found in DINA I, but in many other cases the description of different and is illuminating when compared with the descriptions in DINA I; the ninth group seems to vary quite a bit from Seed Group IX as described in DINA I, and yet, obviously, it is the same group; 22): some of the description of the tenth group in this listing makes it seem to have functions similar to Group IX in the DINA I listing; 23): the third description of the nature of these groups now forming (a continuation from the description of the first two found above, a. and b., ) is as follows: c) “They are the externalisation of an inner existing condition.”; 24): four requirements necessitated in the outer groups vis-à-vis the inner groups are listed.

Laws of the Soul Webinar Commentary 20 covers EP II pages 157-172, and is about three hours long. Topics include: 1): the story of man’s relationship to desire is the story of his search for happiness, joy and bliss; 2): this is also the story of man’s progression from instinct, to intellect, to illumination and finally to identification; 3): the two things which determine the rapidity with which he can bring the Law of Repulse into play: his motive to be of service and his willingness, at any cost, to be obedient to the light within himself; 4): thus, Service and Obedience bring the Law of Repulse into play; 5): discussion of the benefits to the disciple of Service and Obedience; 6): service is the mode par excellence for awakening the heart center and obedience the method for awakening the head center; 7): the urge to serve as the basic urge of the soul of man; “If the urge to satisfy desire is the basic urge of the form life of man, the urge to serve is an equally basic urge of the soul in man.”; 8): “the heart of man is sound but oft asleep”; 9): the watchwords of the disciple, “serve and obey”, have often been distorted in the conventional religious presentation; 10): when service and obedience are understood and followed the law of desire will give way to the Law of Repulse; 11): the Law of Repulse leads to right discrimination and right dispassion; there are also distortions of these faculties; 12): selfish spiritual desire as the major sin of so-called esotericists; 13): on the Path of Discipleship, the Law of Repulse is particularly important; 14): the Law of Repulse is at first very difficult for the disciple to grasp; 15): three things the disciple must do once he recognizes the Law of Repulse; a) he must decentralize himself; b) he must isolate the “Noble Middle Path”; c) he must build the antahkarana or “Path of Light”; “service, an understanding of the Way and the building of the true line of escape” is the task before all modern disciples; 16): “the Central Way” is the path between the pairs of opposites; 17): at the third degree, the Law of Repulse will hold the dominant place in the ruling of the life; 18): repulse considered as “an attitude towards that which is not desirable”; 19): the Law of Repulse involves the devaluation and discarding of that which is not desirable from the perspective of the soul; 20): through discrimination, dispassion and discipline the right choices are made which will set the Law of Repulse into motion; the term “decentralization” should be added to these three and refers to an attitude which removes the personality from its central position in consciousness; 21): the Law of Repulse is also operative on the Path of Initiation but consideration of its function on that Path is too advanced for the average disciple; 22): the presentation of a list of ten opposites between which the disciple must learn to discriminate; 23): the disciple must discover that which is neither of the pairs of opposites and the Central Way which passes between them; this Way the Law of Repulse reveals; 24): only treading the Path of Initiation will reveal the nature of this Central Way and that which is neither of the pairs of opposites; 25): “the Law of Repulse and the pilgrim on the Way of Life”; 26): “The Law of Repulse drives in seven directions, and forces all it thus contacts back to the bosom of the seven spiritual Fathers.”; 27): there is a “Way of Repulsion” for each of the seven ray types; 28): the seven Laws of the Soul lie behind all presentations of truth given out by all spiritual teachers down the ages; 29): DK asks us to find the relationships between the seven Laws of the Soul and the Beatitudes, the stages of the “Noble Eightfold Path”, the Eight Means to Yoga, and the Ten Commandments of the Semitic Religion; 30): by way of example DK relates the Eight Means of Yoga to the Seven Laws of the Soul, and classifies these relationships by ray; 31): DK begins the discussion of the “Seven Directions of the Law of Repulse”; 32): by following these seven directions, each Prodigal Son is drawn back to the Father’s Home on one of seven rays; 33): the impulse to return to the Father’s Home is preceded by the stages of “riotous living”, satisfied desire, satiety and loss of contentment, followed by a period of intense suffering; 34): the seven stanzas dedicated to the Seven Direction of the Law of Repulse are then presented; 35): these stanzas are not analyzed here; they have been analyzed in some hours of previous programming which can be found under the Commentaries on Esoteric Psychology II in the Makara Website; 36): the seven types two whom the Law of Repulse is applied are: the Gardener, Scholar, Weaver, Mixer, Worker, Follower, Magician; 37): DK encourages us to count no cost too great to achieve the revelation brought to us by obeying the Law of Repulse;

Laws of the Soul Webinar Commentary 9 covers EP II pages 105-109, and is about one hour long. Topics include: 1): added to the three previous relinquishments is the fourth – relinquishing the sense of responsibility for what other disciples do; 2): this sense of responsibility is based upon “a sense of righteous responsibility, an adherence to principles as they appear to the individual, and the accumulated experience of the disciple,—which is necessarily incomplete experience.”3): the link between disciples is of the soul and not the mind; 4): an inner subjective linking is indispensable; 5): the process which is to salvage our civilization is to be carried forward under the Law of Sacrifice; 6): perfect unanimity and cooperation among servers is not yet possible; 7): differences and divergences will fall away when the inner link between disciples is held in love and when disciples relinquish authority over each other; 8): there are Three Rules: a) “First, see to it that you permit no rift to appear in the inner relation in which you stand to each other”; b) “Secondly, pursue your own duty and task, shoulder your own responsibility, and then leave your fellow disciples to do the same, free from the impact of your thought and criticism.” c): “Thirdly, preserve ever in work the attitude of mind which must grow out of the two rules above, faithfully followed.” 9): There are three interpretations of the three rules: a): “1. Relinquish or sacrifice the age-old tendency to criticise and adjust another’s work, and thus preserve the inner group integrity.”; b): “2. Relinquish or sacrifice the sense of responsibility for the actions of others, and particularly of disciples.”; c): “3. Relinquish the pride of mind which sees its way and its interpretations to be correct and true, and others false and wrong.”; 10): These rules and their interpretations guide the Teachers on the inner side of life; 11): “ …in freedom and in the sense of joy and in the strength of inner cooperative love is the best work done.”; 12): the Teachers look for the sacrifice of the non-essential in favor of the essential; 13): techniques and methods are secondary to the One Humanity; 14): cooperation is indispensable among disciples and nothing must be allowed to interfere with it.

Laws of the Soul Webinar Commentary 8 covers EP II pages 103-105, and is about one hour long. Topics include: 1): the Relinquishing of Gain is performing action without attachment as in the Bhagavad Gita; 2): the power to detach ourselves from our achieved possessions is latent in our spiritual nature; 3): the soul must relinquish the personality; 4): an important sequence in this process is as follows: dispassion, discrimination, detachment; 5): rose is the color of affection; a rosy cross indicates, for one thing, that the consciousness has affection for that which is to be found upon the cross; 6): the soul must relinquish it tie to other personal selves; other people are to be met only on the plane of soul; 7): many disciples are detached from their own personality self, but still have personal attachment to the intimates, the “near-ones”; 8): such personality attachments are repeatedly taken away from the disciples until at length he or she learns the lesson of impersonality; then all those who were taken away are restored to the disciple, but as souls, on a higher turn of the spiral; the disciple has learned to love them as souls; the real man one gained can never be lost; 9): parents on the Path of Discipleship are taught man lessons in detachment by their children; 10): “to hold, one must detach and to keep, one must release; 11): “The soul has also to learn to relinquish the fruits or gains of service and learn to serve without attachment to results, to means, to persons or to praise”.

Topics include: 1): 1): the three major monadic ray types express through the seven ray types—either the seven soul rays or, perhaps, the seven subsidiary monadic rays; 2): the formula Three, IV.7. expresses the major ray structure of an individual whose Monad is upon the third ray, his soul upon the fourth ray and his personality upon the seventh ray; 3): to this formula the rays of the three lower vehicles must be added; 4): it is possible to have a fifth ray astral body as the sample ray formula indicates; 5): one should study oneself and others and prepare sample ray charts of the kind here discussed; 6): the painful and sorrowful reactions to the Law of Sacrifice can never be eliminated on Earth or on Saturn and Mars; 7): for our Solar Logos, bliss and sacrifice are synonymous terms; 8): on other planets the Law of Sacrifice is not experienced painfully and sorrowfully; 9): human beings can also experience bliss, ecstasy, exaltation and sublimation of feeling if they are sufficiently advanced spiritually; 10): when a human being escapes on to the plane of unity there is no sorrow or suffering; 11): such escapes usually occur unpredictably in states of heightened emotional intensity and do not last; 12): the antahkarana is the “way of escape” into such states and it can be used consciously and at will; 13): even a partially constructed antahkarana can lead to a temporary and fleeting escape into the higher worlds when such a partial antahkarana is submitted to great excitation; 14): via the antahkarana, the “way of escape” becomes the “way of daily livingness”; 15): esoteric psychology can be understood in terms of the Law of Sacrifice: when this occurs light will be thrown on the following; a) the Saturnian influence in human life; b) the cessation of rebellion or the ending of the Martian influence; c) the building of the antahkarana which releases a man from personality life; d) the evocation of group consciousness; e) the ending of pain and sorrow; f) entrance into Nirvana and the beginning of the real Way.

Laws of the Soul Webinar Commentary 4 covers EP II pages 93-96, and is about one hour long. Topics include: 1): to the higher consciousness, descent into matter is death; 2): “the angels chose to die and in dying, lived”; does this refer to the Solar Angels or to man as an Ego; or to that part of man which is the soul-in-incarnation which, when sacrificing itself, gains new life; 3): the sacrifice of the Solar Angels helps to lift matter into heaven; 4): the mystery of the Solar Angels is the “mystery of the ages”; 5): in itself, the process of sacrifice is deeply mysterious; 6): in the far-distant past, the Monad undertook its ‘Pilgrimage of Sacrifice’ in the spirit of joy; 7): man repeats the supreme sacrifice of the Monad undertaken at the “dawn of time” by a deliberate sacrifice as a world savior—far later in his evolutionary career; 8): the “Sacrifice of a World Saviour” is worked out within himself and also before the world as a spiritual drama; 9): the Drama of the World Saviour can be enacted as either the Christ or the Buddha enacted it; these enactments had different results; 10): for the Christ through the Initiate Jesus it was the drama of death through sacrifice; 11): for the Buddha, it was the drama of the death of personal desire; 12): sacrifice travels in both directions; the death of that which is lower in order to release that which is higher; or the death of that which is higher to relase that which is lower; 13): the many painful emotional and psychological states surrounding the process of sacrifice all occur because man is still identified with the form and not with the consciousness of the soul; 14): the moment a man identifies himself with the soul and not the form, he understands the Law of Sacrifice and is spontaneously governed by it; 15): in this type of sacrifice there is no pain, sorrow or real death involved; 16): World Saviours can appear on all the rays and not just on the second and sixth (as has been emphasized during the Age of Pisces); 17): there is a connection between the Atlantean civilization and the experiences of the Age of Pisces; 18): the work of a World Saviour, on no matter which ray he may appear, is salvage, restitution, renovation and revelation; through sacrifice they accomplish this; 19): they are much misunderstood but their work is good.

Is it Sanat Kumara? Is it the Solar God; is it the Cosmic Logos to whom our solar God is related?; 9): a study of the objectives of this great crucified and impelling Being are: a) the development of consciousness; b) the refining of forms; c) the intensification of realised life; 10): the foregoing great eventualities are but the lowest aspect of Divine Purpose; 11): the understanding of Cosmic Purpose persistently deepens; 12): the energy of the fourth ray is directly and appropriately related to the Law of Sacrifice; 13): the fourth ray has so much to do with our solar system, our planet, our Creative Hierarchy, the Fourth, the human kingdom, the fourth; etc. 14): through these fours the Law of Sacrifice is prevalent upon our planet; 15): the fourth ray is the “Ray of Conflict” with a view towards eventual harmony; 16): the fourth ray is a controlling factor in the evolution of our solar system, which is a system of the fourth order; 17): the line-up of fours in relation to our present solar system, shows why our little planet is, at least apparently, so important; 18): since the fourth ray dominates the fourth kingdom of nature and the Fourth Creative Hierarchy, it is now of paramount importance in relation to these two groupings; 19): the position of our planet in the series of solar systems and the position of our solar system in a series of solar systems and in relation to the Cosmic Logos are parallel; 20): under the fourth ray, beauty must be achieved through struggle; 21): the fourth ray is the ‘Ray of Livingness through Death’; 22): it is the ‘Ray of Harmony through Strife; 23): it is the ‘Ray of Union through Diversity and Adversity’; 24): the Solar Angels are “returning nirvanis” and at first, some of them took human beings; 25): we have to learn to what extent we can be considered the “angel” and to what extent the Monad-in-immersion; 26): we as Monads chose to die in order that lesser lives might live; 27): the sacrifice of the Monads and of the Solar Angels has made possible the evolution of the indwelling consciousness of DEITY; 28): for the indwelling life which had worked its way upward through the three lower kingdoms, the sacrifice of the Solar Angels has made possible still further progress; without them (and in our solar system) no further progress would be been made in a timely manner; 29): three kinds of service result from the work of the Solar Angel; a) our service to God; b) our service to other souls; c) our service to the lower kingdoms; 30): all possible human progress is closely related to the Law of Sacrifice.
