A true spiritual path is not about rejecting logic. It is about understanding what the universe really is – and who you really are – through logic, and also through intuition and sense perception.
On November 28th 1954 the Master Aetherius gave to us a stirring spiritual message, through the trance mediumship of Master of Yoga Dr George King, entitled ‘Cosmic Logic’. This message can be read in full in the book You Are Responsible, which was written by Dr King.
In the extract below we are told to know ourselves and to help ourselves reach for the Light of Divinity that burns within each and every one of us.
In fact, the Master Aetherius gives us a formula we can all follow to fill ourselves with Cosmic Light and knowledge of the right kind. If we do this we can draw toward ourselves the help of those who are closer to true God knowledge, and serve as a living lighthouse of inspiration for others.
The Master Aetherius:
“You are not alone in your struggles — you have never been alone in your struggles for Spiritual supremacy. We have been aware, for centuries, of the tremendous battle now raging on Terra — a battle between basic materialism on the one hand, and Spirituality and enlightenment on the other hand.
“Now, when some of you regard the apparent surface chaos of your Planet, you are apt to be despondent. Cast this despondency to the winds, for it is a useless garment — it could never keep you warm because the winds of doubt could blow through its coarse weave and you would freeze.
“Discard your despondency!
“Have courage, hope and faith that your most honourable aspiration will be fulfilled by a greater magic than any other magic — the magic that is brought about by the power within you …
“This is the crux of my message: know yourselves and help yourselves — you cannot help yourselves without knowing yourselves, it is absurd. The more you know yourselves and help yourselves, the more you will be helped from all sources. Go out of your way to help and teach others and the more you do so, the more you will be helped to do this, for it is an honourable calling.
“You will find that in the coming years, the Flying Saucer believers will be split into two camps. One lot will look upon them from the super-mathematical aspect and the other camp will look beyond the products of mathematics — to the Light. It is to this latter camp that I have to speak, in order to teach and help.
“The other camp will be looked after by other agents, trained specially to look after the more academically minded terrestrial beings. So we will spread the teaching throughout this dark island which we call Terra — an island only because you have deliberately cut yourselves off and tried to shut away the Light of knowledge, which cometh through the ethers.
“I hope you will stay this dissection and open yourselves to those Cosmic rays which are being emanated by the Planetary Beings, so that you may become warm in the depth of winter, Light in the darkness, Holy in the midst of sin, pure and clean in the midst of impurity and dirt.
“You can do it now, if you will — it is not impossible for any of you. If I knew one here who would find it impossible, I would not talk so. If each one of you expended the correct effort, you could become filled with Cosmic Light and knowledge, for it would be the right knowledge which has been passed through the heart and moulded into wisdom. That cold knowledge, which has limitations, is useless because, sooner or later, it must be transmuted into something higher. So why not start in the right place now, gain the knowledge, pass it through the feelings and bring it into being on the Planet for yourselves?
“If you try to do this, you will not be working by yourselves — many others will see to that. It is the Occult Law that the teacher himself must not trespass upon the private sanctuary of what may be termed a person’s individual way of thinking. But if the thinker transmutes his way of thinking to the highest realm of which he is capable, then can the right teacher shed Light into his mind and body and raise him up.
“This is so — it has happened before on Terra — your great Masters have done this. Your Great Masters chose to be born in material poverty. I am informed that there is one shining exception to this — Buddha — who serves only to prove the rule — and even then, He had to cast aside His materialistic accumulation before He could receive the Light.
“I must point out that it is easy to make excuses and say, ‘If I had been born so-and-so, I could have done better’, but this is not so, it is the foolish talk of a child. Each and everyone of you can, in the quiet of your own room — which is your mind — draw inspiration which comes from within. The more people who do this, the more will follow those people, because they will see within you the Light — they may not know that they see it, but they will see it. They will not know why, but like moths that flit around the light of your lantern, they will follow. Why should the Law suddenly change now? It has been the vogue for 3,000 million years upon Terra and it will be 3,000 million years more before the Planet is absorbed back again into the Sun.”
