Trials of Deception: Psychics Are Easily Deceived

In light of various messages, teaching and communication claims with either Masters of the Wisdom or their representatives, I offer this quote below as a theme for discussion on the validity of such claims, in order to uphold the integrity of the true teachings presented by the Masters of Trans-Himalayan Occultism.

Please read this following passage with care as none of us are immune from its cautionary theme.  We are, without exception, traversing a path from a condition of ignorance, to knowledge and wisdom, from darkness to light, seeking to bring order out of chaos for the benefit of the entire Group of esotericists:

“Psychics are easily deceived. For example, it is of course obvious that on the astral plane there is a thoughtform of myself, your Tibetan brother. All who have received the disciples’ degree monthly instructions, all who read the books which I have sent out into the world with the aid of A.A.B., also all who are working in my personal group of disciples have naturally and automatically aided in the construction of this astral thoughtform.

It is not me, it is not linked to me, nor do I use it. I have definitely disassociated myself from it and do not employ it as a means of contacting those I teach, for I work from choice entirely on mental levels thereby undoubtedly limiting my range of contacts but increasing the effectiveness of my work. This astral thoughtform is a distortion of me and my work, needless to say and resembles an animated and galvanised shell.

Because there is in this form much emotional substance and also a certain amount of mental substance, it can make a wide appeal and its validity is such that like all shells, for instance, which are contacted in the séance room, it masquerades as myself and where the intuition is unawakened the illusion is complete and real.

Devotees can therefore tune in with great facility on this illusory form and be completely deceived. Its vibration is of a relatively high order. Its mental effect is like a beautiful parody of myself and serves to place the deluded devotees in touch with the scroll of the astral light, which is a reflection of the akashic records.

These latter are the eternal scroll whereon the plan for our world is inscribed and from which those of us who teach gather our data and much of our information. This the astral light distorts and steps down. Because this is a distorted image and functions in the three worlds of form and has no source of validity higher than those of form, it has in it the seeds of separateness and of disaster.

Forms of flattery are sent out from it, ideas of separateness, those thoughts which feed ambition and which foster love of power, and those germs of desire and personal longing (which divide groups) emerge from contact with it. The results to those who are deceived thereby are sad.”  (The Externalization of the Hierarchy, Alice A. Bailey. pp. 11-12.)

I think we have reason enough to feel sad now that the forces of deception have cast their net and ensnared so many well intentioned seekers. It is of particular interest that even one of the disciples in training under the master’s supervision fell for this very type of deception despite personal warnings that their judgement was in error. We can benefit from that experience and take assistance from DK’s comments in this regard.

    How important it is to notice that the soul is the first Master…. and not any learned scholar of the wisdom; how important is it to respect all your fellow travelers on the Path with loving understanding in times of crises; how important is it to experience groupwork and recognize the Light on the Way of your fellow travelers; how important is it to take a stand on separation when you see it and be aware that your fellow human being is your brother even when he is glamoured or fed with illusions; have trust in that there is a Plan for humanity and that crises are needed for further growth and future incarnations of service to live sacred by the One Life. Seek for the GOOD in every human being, the Masters are with us and leading us in these unique cycle of expanding consciousness.

    How fortunate for us all that we have the master DK himself as an example of someone who is engaged in group work as a 5th degree initiate no less, in fact is the foremost promoter of group work, he seems to me the ultimate learned scholar, the exemplar of loving understanding and has presented many examples in DINA 1 & 2 of assisting those under his supervision in bringing to their awareness their glamours and suggesting the means of overcoming them…then there is his presentation of the Plan with hints and insights into the nature of Purpose.!.
    Then if all of that wasn’t enough he gives the rules for group work in Rays & Initiations so that we may study and learn of the techniques, the composition and spirit in which group work is to be conducted along with in-depth insights into the manasic, buddhic and atmic planes through the eyes of his wisdom…what more could anyone possibly ask for.?.
    He in turn asks of us to apply ourselves to the teaching he has generously given and…
    “It is for my disciples to safeguard this presentation of truth during this century and to see to it that the books are sent forth steadily upon their mission, until they are finally superseded next century by a newer and more adequate teaching.” DINA 1 page 31

    Of course not everyone who reads these comments is going to agree with the particular points of view offered or appreciate the reasoning for initiating this type of discussion, but as anybody can see there has already been some very good contributions.
    As for some mentioning they see this discussion as being divisive…really.?.
    Is no one able to make comments and present opinions and ideas for fear of upsetting someone.?.
    I would have assumed there existed a degree of spiritual maturity that would welcome such discussions and questioning on these important matters after all we are each one of us without exception seekers of Truth…

    The establishing of true group relationships. These relationships are not based on “liking and disliking, personality or impersonality, or on criticism or non-criticism, but upon a real comprehension of ‘divine indifference,’ spiritual detachment and deep, persistent, unchanging love.”
    R & I. from Rule Eleven … El – a Semitic word meaning god or deity.
    even – equal in value.
