More Than Meets the Eye – What is Your Degree?

Many people are hung up on status, kudos and ranking.

Twenty-one years ago, I had not encountered the so-called “Blue Books”. I considered myself quite smart by virtue of my position at a top university, and the number of academic papers I had published.

There was a whole swathe of stuff that I had not encountered, yet I was starting to encounter it. The notion of Masters of Wisdom and Initiates was alien to me, but I am/was a researcher. I like to delve.

The following diagram shows the Planetary Hierarchy as per AAB and the Tibetan in 1925, roughly a hundred years ago. It distinguishes Masters who have had more than five initiations, initiates of the first, second, third and fourth degree, disciples, those on the probationary paths and average humanity of all degrees.

Where would you put yourself on this delineation?

Are you “average” humanity, “special clever” humanity or some kind of an initiate dude?

It suggests three basic strands of endeavour: the will aspect, the second ray love-wisdom aspect and the active intelligence aspect.

I have reason to believe that my causal vehicle corresponds to the second ray love-wisdom aspect, that I am therefore of the elephant dreaming class. I am not too lovey-dovey, so I suspect that I manifest more of the wisdom aspect than the love one.

If the details presented in the blue books are accurate The Tibetan took the fifth in 1875 as an old man and was still writing by amanuensis some 75 years later.

I suspect that my erstwhile colleagues might find this a tad hard to believe. Even though they have never met The Tibetan they would assume such claims to be fictional, they may even scoff out of hand.

Where do you think I am on this delineation?

Does it really matter?

If we are ignorant even though we don’t know it, are we right to opine and with adamant conviction?

Could there be more than meets our self-centred and physical plane eyes?
