Over the years I’ve heard many express opinions that there is a gigantic struggle of “good aliens” with “evil aliens” who supposedly “stole our DNA” or want to “enslave us” or keep us enslaved. This piece was written to dispel those illusions.
I’ll begin with a brief recap of the key points raised in Part 1. We’ll pick up the thread a few paragraphs down.
Views holding that any form of darkness can stand equal to the Light are usually based in fear and duality, and are by-products of the delusion of human separateness. Fear and duality prevent an unobstructed view of the whole of creation.
Remember -- all the forms of our apparent existence are God's dream. We all are products of light force consciously directed into our life forms.
I believe there is NO battle between good and evil, except within ourselves. It is a struggle for our Eternal Spirit-Soul to break free of the traps of inertia and ignorance. It is the only battle we ever fight throughout our eternity of existence, and once we win it, we live in the NOW and have positioned our consciousness to fulfill our higher purposes.
In part 1 I also offered that I've never yet seen "evil" that didn't originate in human behavior. All that we consider "evil" seems to involve the results of human behavior, where a person has forgotten their true nature and purpose, and wound up trapped in perceptual and sensory attachments, aversions, and illusions. We don’t need to blame space people or some version of “the devil” for human misbehavior resulting from ignorance and fear.
Though there may seem to be such a thing as collective evil, embodied in certain institutions, governments, groups and their ideas, it could be argued that these are merely vortices of dense ignorance. There are thought forms of slavery, brutality, torture, as well as a myriad of lesser evils. All of this is human generated mischief, and are the result of collective human ignorance and fear. These also didn’t originate from space people or “the devil.”
I regard these forms of “evil” as just more generic and collective human inertia perpetuating forms of suffering. We humans participate in some of these until we awaken to the reality that we are here to lessen suffering, first our own, then others. Of course, it could be argued that in lessening the suffering of others, we lessen our own.
Now we pick up the next part of the discussion. As we transition from the Age of Pisces, with its illusions and erroneous belief systems, into the Age of Aquarius, with miracles and wonder as yet unknown to our current world, we must use critical thinking skills to bust old mythologies masquerading as new mythologies. Time to put “Adam, Eve, and the devil” behind us, along with false belief systems about good and evil.
All the nonsense about supposedly higher beings or space people "stealing our DNA," or compelling humanity to suffer as slaves to their "higher will," are poor re-embodiments of an archaic and obsolete set of religious superstitions. Future generations will look back and wonder how and why we stayed in so much fear and ignorance for so many centuries.
We are not apart from Nature, Nature is not our enemy or ours to despoil, and we are beginning to see the Oneness of Life that all of humanity is a part of. The New Age will bring us out of the superstitions and fogs of the Age of Pisces into an integrated awareness of how everything seen and unseen relates to “All-That-Is.”
The struggle between the "gods" of mythology simply symbolizes the fluctuations between the inertia of obsolete forms and the ever-renewing Life-Light-Love Force as it manifests new forms on all levels. When the old does not want to give way, each polarity regards the other as "evil.”
Through this duality we learn to perfect our material, emotional, and mental functioning as we lead our consciousness to an ever-greater sense of At-One-Ment. This happens through our constant attraction of new perspectives and new opportunities to respond, based in the good we are and can do, and synthesizing these into our patterns of thinking, feeling, and doing.
Re-frame your approach to good and evil, from the standpoint of inquiry as to how and why all of this works together to bring forth the greater Plan of human evolution. We are collectively coming out of unconscious passivity to Life into a more dynamic relationship as co-creator with Nature Itself of newer, more evolved forms of manifestations.
To address one old superstition, "Luci-fer" actually means "light-bringer.” As you know from our monthly Full Moon meditation, when light hits upon dense matter, the play between light and form creates a shadow. The Angel who brings Light also brings shadows that are created by our dense thoughts, dense feelings, and dense actions. And by illuminating any thing from multiple angles, we dispel various types of shadows.
“The devil” is a different thought form, which I personally believe is the sum total of human thought forms based in fear, vanity, animal desire, and the human emotion of wanting ever more intense feeling experiences. Many have generated unhelpful thought forms across the centuries, but never took the time to reverse or dissolve them. While the totality of these can seem overwhelming, it’s helpful to remember these feeling-generated thought forms are inherently unreal, because all of them eventually pass away in the Light of Higher Awareness.
It is also said in one ancient philosophy that "the devil is God as He is misunderstood by the wicked." Or She. In that approach, the devil represents half truths that lead humanity astray, perceptions attached to the chains of delusion that we could lift off our shoulders any time we want.
Gaia, as well as the Consciousness of that body known to us as "The Lord of the World," is beyond "evil" as most people understand it. No part of the Plan for Earth and Humanity functions to further what suffering humanity usually calls "evil.” Besides the numerous articles in my archives on the subject, there is quite a bit in the writings of Alice Bailey that explains more about the greater evolutionary Plan.
We’ll close this brief examination of the nature of “evil,” “DNA stealers,” “evil space people,” and other illusions with a reminder that all of this relates to the limitations of human fear and separateness, known in esoteric philosophy as the "Ring-Pass-Not.” All forms and levels of this vibratory field, individual and collective, symbolize the limits imposed by conditions of Dharma that focus and impede the energies of the evolving being on whatever level.
All “Rings-Pass-Not” are the result of perceptual assumptions and various other factors of the human condition, including what is required of those who are “disciples” on a Path to Higher Awareness. Some of these limitations arise from wrong realization or wrong application of those realizations, but by confronting delusions of self/Self, doubt, and superstitions we can come out of these into the clear Light of Wisdom and Understanding.
This is where any lack of clarity regarding the nature of good and evil, the Plan and the Hierarchy, Christ, Sanat Kumara and the kumaras of activity and nonactivity, Shamballa, concepts of karma and Karma and other elements of the entire glamorized magilla, are all forms challenging our individual and collective “Ring Pass Not.” Ultimately, we transcend all forms of limitation and “evil” through right realization, and then applying those realizations in forms of goodwill and loving self-less service within a greater community dedicated to the will-to-good.
So the next time someone tries to tell you there are evil space people who enslaved us or who want to enslave us, regard it as perfume; you may or may not want to smell it, but you most definitely should not swallow it. We all have the power to transcend the lower self and become our Higher Self. We all ARE an Eternal Consciousness having human experiences.
“Evil” is an illusion. The Light of Oneness is the reality. And we are all together.
