I see the restituted physical state. From the degree of mentality to the degree of the physical or glorious body is it restituted. The time of disequilibrium has passed and formations no longer rise and fall fluctuating as the waves of the sea. Each sphere of the Spheric Dominion is as a city of peace, for in all is BRAH manifested. They are decked with loveliness as a bride adorned for the reception of the bridegroom.
I hear a sweet voice which comes from the centre and throne of the pathotic force of each sphere saying: 'The covenant of ADONAI is confirmed to men. BRAH dwells within them and they are the sanctuary of his temple. The Eternal is their only God. By the Divine Oneness which banishes forever all personal gods, all tears of sorrow cease, there shall be no more mourning, cries, and sorrow. for retrogressive transformation is no more.
In the time of activity OANNES spoke saying:
"Let this be known and remembered of our own forever: the Unthinkable, the Unpenetrable, the Indivisible, is One and eternal. By the manifestation of the Unthinkable in penetrable, divisible and eternal Substance are all states and degrees of being formed and classified. By the permeation of the less rarefied by the more subtle rarefaction with which it is in rapport of affinity, is all formed that is formed. To the originator the conception and its primary manifestation are concomitant. To those to whom the conception is manifested, the conception may precede the manifestation by aeons of time, because the conception is in the being of the conceiver; manifestation, realisation and materialisation of the conception depend on that with which it is clothed.
I will tell you a parable.
A master architect journeying through a foreign country conceived in his mentality the design of a wonderful palace. But the people did not speak his language so that he could not communicate his conception to them. After a considerable while of establishing trust, one amongst them was persuaded to enter into a state of rest and try to perceive the conception which the architect has manifested as well as he could by the concentration thereon of his desire and will.
After a long while of waiting, the one who rested communicated with him as mentality to mentality, saying: 'Now that I rest in your mental aura, I am in rapport with you and I perceive your conception in part, but very dimly. I am willing to do what I can to realize it, but first it is essential to know and fully understand it; give us therefore the design.'
'I have no means to draw this design save by your hand; rest and let your hand do this.'
After a time, the design of the master architect was traced, and that one who traced it and those in affinity with him saw that it was wonderful in beauty and utility. Then the master architect said: 'As a conception is not yet a design, so a design is not yet a building. It is my will to materialize this manifestation, but I do not have the proper material for the execution of my design. If you so will, rest that you may find it.'
He rested and said: 'In rest have I been clothed and have entered a region of materiality from which that which you desire may be evolved.'
The master architect said: 'By your sentientation do you know this; through you therefore will we evolve this materiality by the infusion of our forces therein, so it will receive that which it is capable of receiving, and according to its capabilities and its actual evolvement will be its fitness.'
And it was so, so that at length, from the foundation to the most lofty pinnacles, nothing was wanting.
So all conception descends and clothes itself in the degree of substance which is meet for its manifestation. Conceived by the originator, the conception impregnates substance in passivity; that is, substance whose inherent pathotism, spirituality, intellectuality and vitality have not yet been brought into activity by duality of being.
Thus, the rarefied and divine conceptions descended continually into density after density of substance, enduring and seemingly lost therein, but rested in the seeming burial place to rise, glorious and triumphant, first in Pathotism, then in the seven-fold Etherialism and lastly in the Materialism of which the material Spheric Dominions are formed.
Now the Unthinkable, Unclothed (and therefore not manifested), and the Unthinkable, clothed upon in the substance of the density of the material spheric dominions, is one and the same. In the oneness of the Unthinkable, universal being is one. By reason of this oneness, in order, all states and degrees of this universality of being are in rapport one with the other. Thus the last evolved density, symbolized as darkness because of the dimness of its intellectuality, will finally evolve to its full capacities of perfectionising and thus be in rapport with all more rarefied states and degrees, even to those which are now to man unthinkable.
I sleep but my intelligence wakens, wakens to rapport with the intelligence of the initiates of the past.
Throughout the cosmos mortality is not, in the cosmos inertia is not. Therefore we stand face to face with two manners of transformation: the transformation of progression and the transformation of retrogression. It was in face of these two, forever opposed transformation that a hierarchic chief of old proclaimed to his order: "I set before you decadence or perfectionising. Choose therefore which you will accept this day."
Aeons and aeons of time have passed since there words were spoken, and so vast is the majority who have practically chosen to accept retrogressive transformation, that - save for the few who have in themselves the witness that that which is received from the beginning is true - progressive transformation in integrity of being is as a vain dream, and those who proclaim the possibility, and the equilibrium of such transformation, are accounted by the others as those who have lost their intelligence or who seek to dupe their fellows.
Let no man deceive you: the restitution of formations (that is, the re-placement of progressive transformation for retrogressive transformation) will not come by a so-called supernatural (that is, by abnormal or phenomenal incident or series of incidents), but by the renovation of true science; not by a revelation from the heavens in the midst of earthquakes and thunderings, but first by the philosophical and theoretical knowledge of equilibrium and disequilibrium, and then by the steady and reasonable march of science which follows in the track of philosophy and tests the truth of ancient traditions, and while accepting only that which it is able actually to prove, it does not deny that which is not proven, but seeks ever to find and utilize conditions which may enable it to verify that which was hypothetical yesterday and which is today proven.
It remains for science, following on the steps of philosophy, or the eternal present, to find a light which shall lighten the dwelling of man from sunset to sunrise, that is a light which from on high is able to illumine the quaternary atmospheres of which the breathable air is the clothing, so that there shall be no darkness at all. This luminary should possess all the beneficent properties of the sun's rays in the spring time. He who shall find this light and the means of its utilisation, shall be remembered for all time. For it is the philosophers and scientists who, by re-opening to man the way to the knowledge of all that is knowable, are the pioneers of the Restitution. It is not from the clouds and in the sight of all men that the Restitutor rises, but rather, from the concretions beneath the earth, at the presence of whose knowledge and power, the concretions shall yield up to the soil, the water and the air, their primitive and normal constituents. It is not as a mighty victor accompanied by his victorious armies, but as the man of sorrows who is veiled by the Initiates, that the Restitutor will respond to collective humanity in its agony in the darkness: 'Be your light manifested.'
Because, only by the manifestation of the intelligence of collective humanity can the radiance of the divine indweller be manifested. Only by the united manifestation of divine and human intelligence can the long night (abnormal and timal) of retrogressive transformation be banished by the dawn of the day (normal and eternal) of universal progressive transformation.
