Helena Petrovna Blavatsky (1831-1891) – Contacted by the Master Morya in 1851. After years of contact with her spirit masters she helped to found the Theosophical Society in 1875. Published Isis Unveiled in 1877, established Lucifer, an occult magazine, in London in 1887, and then published The Secret Doctrine in 1888.
When talking about the NEW AGE…, the only real place to start is with Helena Petrovna Blavatsky. Everything…, and I really do mean everything that we discuss about the NEW AGE today goes back to this one woman! If there are those that doubt this…, then they have not done their homework. Her work…, THE SECRET DOCTRINE (1888) is the foundation stone of the new age thinking and teaching…, and where this “cult religion” gets most of its traditions, beliefs, and understandings from.
That most people claiming to understand the NEW AGE…, don’t know this goes a long way into showing how ignorant they really are about the NEW AGE.
Notice that in 1887, in London, she established an Occult Magazine simply called: LUCIFER! This was not accidental.
Alice Ann Bailey (1880-1949) – Contacted by the Master Koot Humi in 1895. In 1917 she became acquainted with students of Blavatsky and then joined the Theosophical Society. In 1919 the Master Djwhal Khul contacted her and asked for her assistance in taking some dictation. At first she refused out of fear, but then later accepted upon instruction from the Master Koot Humi. The Master Djwhal Khul then wrote eighteen books through Bailey over the next thirty years. She founded the hugely influential Lucis Trust in 1922.
Alice Bailey was the defacto “replacement” for Helena Blavatsky as far as the NEW AGE was concerned. Alice Bailey wrote many books, and published them through a private publishing company now known as the Lucis Trust.
However…, the Lucis Trust was originally known as THE LUCIFER TRUST…, before it’s name was changed. Just like Helena Blavatksky’s Magazine was called: LUCIFER…, Alice Bailey gave the very same nod of affection to LUCIFER by naming her publishing company after him, and then later changing the name when it obviously raised eyebrows.
Just as Blavatsky was associated with El Morya (a so-called Ascended Master), as well as associated with St. Germaine, and Kuthumi, so Bailey was associated with Djwhal Khul, St. Germaine, and Kuthumi.
Although these ascended masters have stood proudly as representatives of the NEW AGE…, all of the knowledge of the NEW AGE written down by Blavatsky in her book: THE SECRET DOCTRINE, can be thought of as many things…, but certainly the single most HIDDEN thing the NEW AGERS will drop their jaws at is the idea that LUCIFER is the “god” of this world. That “he” is the king and the holy of holies.
On page 162, of the Secret Doctrine, Blavatsky writes
“Lucifer is the LOGOS in his highest, and the “Adversary” in his lowest aspect – both of which are reflected in our Ego.”
(The Secret Doctrine II, p.162).
she then writes that,
“Satan is the god of our planet, and the only god,” (p.234). She sums up on page 513 by writing, “Lucifer is divine and terrestrial light, the “Holy Ghost” and “Satan,” at one and the same time… And now it stands proven that Satan, or the Red Fiery Dragon… and Lucifer, or “Light-Bearer,” is in us: it is our Mind – our tempter and Redeemer, our intelligent liberator and Savior…”
This sounds like interesting “deep theology” and could be seen only as metaphor if not for those who were so “certain” in their writings that LUCIFER himself was in fact their GOD and SAVIOR as stated above.
Curiously, the unholy trinity of Blavatsky and Bailey, according to their own writings, is not the ultimate expression of God. Their trinity is only concerned with this planet, so Blavatsky writes in one passage that:Satan is our only god, yet elsewhere she puts him in his place relative to the universe. The ultimate force is referred to by Bailey as “The Unknown,” or “The One About Whom Naught May Be Said,” This is her impersonal pantheistic god-force that is creation, it is her divine force of which she says we all have a spark.
On p.293 of A Treatise On Cosmic Fire Bailey offers a chart that shows: The Unknown…, presiding over seven Cosmic Logos, and each Cosmic Logos presiding over seven Solar Logos, and each Solar Logos presiding over seven Heavenly Men. As explained earlier, Sanat Kumara is described by Bailey as a Heavenly Man. He is Satan or Lucifer: The Lord of the World. He is far from the top of Bailey’s confusing universal hierarchy, but according to her he is the “only god” as far as humanity is concerned.
For those who may enjoy “word magic”…, it is easy to see that SANAT is an anagram for Satan.
HPB (Helena Protrovna Blavatksky) also writes The Secret Doctrines,
“In this case it is but natural… to view Satan, the Serpent of Genesis, as the real creator and benefactor, the Father of Spiritual mankind. For it is he who was the “Harbinger of Light,” bright radiant Lucifer, who opened the eyes of theautomaton created by Jehovah, as alleged; (Lucifer) can only be regarded in the light of a Saviour. An “adversary” to Jehovah the “personating spirit,” he still remains in esoteric truth the ever-loving “Messenger”…”
(S.D. II, ).
HPB describes Lucifer, or Satan the Adversary, as the Saviour, the ever-loving Messenger, but Jesus described him in totally opposite terms saying,
“He was a murderer from the beginning, not holding to the truth, for there is no truth in him. When he lies he speaks his native language, for he is a liar and the father of lies,” (Luke 8:44).
Both Blavatsky and Bailey view Jesus Christ with thinly veiled contempt.
To them, the “Master Jesus” is an individual who is separate from Maitreya the Christ. He is simply another Ascended Master just like Krishna, Buddha, Mohamed, etc. However, the story of this Master, as told by AAB (Alice Ann Bailey) is rather peculiar. She writes that He was indeed the man who was crucified and then resurrected, but that He was able to do this only because He was overshadowed by Maitreya the Christ.
New Age theology is predicated on a regimented series of degrees, or levels, of spiritual evolution. According to Bailey…, Jesus achieved the 5th degree at His resurrection, but He was then demoted back down to the 4th degree! In His next incarnation as Appollonius of Tyana He finally re-established His 5th degree status.
Presently, according to Benjamin Creme, the Master Jesus is waiting in Rome to take control of the Roman Catholic Church and to lead Christianity to accept Maitreya the Christ.
The Master Jesus is the only known Master to have ever been demoted, and He is also the only known Master whose ministry is tinged with negativity, because He is described by Bailey as a man whose followers are distinguished by their “fanaticism and devotion,” (Initiation, Human and Solar, p.56).
Interestingly, Bailey foresees a time when NEW AGERS will do actual “battle” with the followers of Jesus.
Elsewhere Bailey describes fanaticism as a trait that is characteristic of “small minds” and of those who are “beginners on The Path,” (The Externalization of the Hierarchy, p.20).
She also predicts that the future ideological battle will see those who are on the side of the New Age faced against the “fanatics” of Christianity,
“Years ago I said that the war which may follow this one would be waged in the field of the world religions. Such a war will not work out, however, in a similar period of extreme carnage and blood; it will be fought largely with mental weapons and in the world of thought; it will involve also the emotional realm, from the standpoint of idealistic fanaticism.
The world has been continually infiltrated by Theosophists, with what they believe to be consciousness-altering “light” in order to prepare us for the unity necessary to receive Sanat Kumara as our world leader and true spiritual identity. The next expected avatar who will bridge the gap between western and eastern mysticism will supposedly be Maitreya, who is one of the higher Kumaras, who will usher in the wide reception of Sanat Kumara.
Creme says that the aspect of God that we aspire to is the Logos of our planet, who is embodied for us as Sanat Kumara, on Shamballa.
He is our “Father ….In the coming age many, many people will see God as Sanat Kumara and take the third initiation ….When you take the third initiation you see God, as Sanat Kumara, the Lord of the world, who is a real physical being in etheric matter on Shamballa.” (Reappearance of Christ and The Masters of Wisdom, p. 135)
Creme talks about Maitreya being the 1st and 2nd initiations who “prepares the way” for this “Lord of the World” – “Sanat Kumara”, the third initiation. David Spangler another Blavatsky/Bailey disciple makes no bones about the identity of this initiator. He calls this the “Luciferic Initiation.”
The true light of Lucifer cannot be seen through sorrow, through darkness, through reflection. The true light of this great being can only be recognized when one’s own eyes can see with the light of the Christ, the light of the inner sun. Lucifer works within each of us to bring us to wholeness, and as we move into the New Age, which is the age of man’s wholeness, each of us is brought to that point which I term the Luciferic Initiation, the particular doorway through which the individual must pass if he is to come fully into the presence of his light and his wholeness.
Lucifer comes to give us the final gift of wholeness. If we accept it, then he is free and we are free, that is the Luciferic Initiation. It is one that many people now, and in the days ahead, will be facing, for it is an initiation into the New Age.– David Spangler,REFLECTIONS ON THE CHRIST, Findhorn Lecture Series, 3rd ed., 1981; p. 45
Creme denies the creator and promotes the Heresy of Lucifer, in which the serpent invited Eve to partake (Gen. 3:5).
- What will you say is the purpose behind creation? (Ageless Wisdom teachings and spirituality. Basic tenets FAQ)
- There is only one purpose that we can know about in the whole of cosmos – the service of cosmos by cosmos. If it is true to say that we are God, there is no such thing as God out there and us here. God is a state of Being, a state of consciousness. When you have that state of consciousness, you know that you are God.
- Alice Bailey founded the Lucifer Trust, which she later changed to the Lucis Trust — what did she mean by Lucifer?
- Lucifer is the name of a great Angel, not an upstart in heaven who revolted against God and was put down into the nether regions as the Devil….the angel who ensouls the human kingdom; every person, therefore, is a fragment of Lucifer. According to the esoteric teaching, the human souls individualized 18.5 million years ago. Lucifer, the Oversoul, diversified itself, and each fragment became individualized.
That’s funny the word of God tells me otherwise: “How art thou fallen from heaven, O Lucifer, son of the morning! how art thou cut down to the ground, which didst weaken the nations! For thou has said in thine heart, I will ascend into heaven, I will exalt my throne above the stars of God: I will sit also upon the mount of the congregation, in the sides of the north: I will ascend above the heights of the clouds; I will be like the Most High.” Isaiah 14: 12-15
And the great Dragon was cast out, that old serpent, called the Devil, and Satan, which deceiveth the whole world: he was cast out into the earth, and his angels were cast out with him. Rev. 12:9
Maitreya in another page at Creme’s Share International gives his disciples a prayer for the New Age. Read the following with Genesis 3:4-5 in mind: “And the serpent said unto the woman, Ye shall surely not die: For God doth know that in the day ye eat thereof, then your eyes shall be opened, and ye shall be as gods knowing good and evil.”
Now would the true Christ return to deny God and give the same message that the serpent gave to Eve; we can become Gods. Creme teaches that the Christ Maitreya has returned as the World Teacher and that his teaching is the art of “self-realization” or in other words, man has the capacity to become God by occult initiatory methods.
Whether Benjamin Creme’s channeled “Master” is, in fact, the antichrist or not, remains to be seen. However, the teaching of man’s divinity is the crux of the New Age-New World Order, and its various “light-bearers” have successfully ingrained this idea into the minds of humanity — a clear invitation to partake “in fruit of the tree of knowledge of good and evil”. We know who brought that first message in the Garden, and the startling thing is that they readily admit that its Lucifer bringing this same “initiation.” Incidentally, New Age leader John Randolph Price admits that, “Those who follow the path of Lucifer are called ‘light-bearers‘ in the world.”
The Plan of the Hierarchy of Ascended Masters is a New World Religion and a New World Order, with a “Christ” and one “Sanat Kumara” at it’s head.
Jesus said there will be many false Christs (Matt. 24:23,24), and warns of this as a sign just before his return. First the New Age Hierarchy had to ingrain their “Divine Plan” into the minds of an already spiritually-empty society, which our Western culture has been for generations.
It is my humble opinion that we must go beyond both Christianity AND the New Age, in order to find the truth that dwells within…, and that TRUTH is our own connection to SOURCE.
The time for SAVIORS and ASCENDED MASTERS is gone…, and just like Cameron Day’s articles say…, the entire structure of the so-called heavenly realms is a LIE.
We do need to go beyond these teachings and learn that these beings can not be OUR SAVIORS.
It is LOVE that we need to embody, and TRUTH that we need to tell. THE “SECRET” DOCTRINES of Blavatsky were just another Secret Society manual…, that was meant to lure innocnet people into a cult like following where the TRUTH could not be told because it had to remain secret. However that “truth” was once again a LIE…, for those who still thought that KNOWLEDGE should remain in the hands of a few.
Whatever the truth is…, it must embody LOVE for everyone…, while SECRECY needs to be wiped out forever!
All my love,
