“Where there is no vision, the people perish: but he that keepeth the law, happy is
he” – Proverbs 29:18.
The eagle is an ancient symbol of spiritual vision. It was supposed to be the only
creature that could look directly into the sun. Spiritual vision is essential true
Americanism. Our national arms proclaim the principle that the Primary Aim of the
United States of America shall be to establish peace. A nation that dedicates itself to
the establishment of peace dedicates itself to the quest for ever-increasing knowledge
The esoteric meaning of eagle is “the liberty of the Gospels” and it refers to the
“good news of freedom” that is the burden of the New Testament. That good news
eagle is associated as a symbol of the regenerated activities of the Scorpio force,
connected with the element of water, always a symbol of purification for the transformation of darkness to light. After purification is accomplished, we have borrowed from the eagle and have eyes with which to see and recognize the great truth that everything in our environment works for liberty and not for human bondage. What stands in our own way looks like the devil because evolution is still in progress. We cannot allow ourselves to become fixated in the appearances of negativity. We must see them as necessary transitions that are leading towards positive and constructive brotherhood and unity. Suffering of humanity comes as a result of seeing ourselves as being separate from one another and of seeing God as something separate and outside of ourselves. The appearance of the world is not the reality.
It is time to cut the reverse side of The Great Seal of The United States. We are in
the dissolution of power that has held human life in bondage by fear and force. The
element of fire, Mind, is approaching to burn out man’s ignorance. Man’s power is losing
the electrons that have retarded soul growth to discover our divine destiny. The time of
the fate of anyone expressing the Truth of Reality is now under the protection of Higher
Law. We cannot silence Freedom of Speech as the methods of communication advance
at a rate of speed no man can stop.
We need to address the idea of change in our thinking instead of adding onto already
unworkable ideas. Piling more money onto everything that is already obsolete and in a
state of collapse is useless effort. True freedom implies wisdom and understanding. To
be a leader you have to know where you are going. The underlying spirit of freedom will
triumph as it is organized by world thinkers with understanding of the changes that are
taking place that require new direction and guidance. In spite of the vast destruction
everywhere, change is being increasingly felt. The destruction of the forces of evil is going
on even though at great cost to the forces of Light. Simultaneously there is a regrouping and
rearrangement of human attitudes and thought.
The Spiritual structure has always been present, but it has been heavily overlaid by the
material desires of mankind. A thick crust of thoughtforms veils and hides the inner realms of beauty and of meaning, of quality, and of spiritual consciousness. This crust is being blasted away by the present catastrophic condition in the world. There is a need to wake up to a better understanding of energy and how it is used to choose to aid humanity, or bring destruction.
Let us begin to look to divine possibilities. When a person or nation in spiritually oriented,
the result of the energy impact will be good and will lead to the working out of the divine plan
and thus be wholly constructive. As spiritual values emerge more clearly, the fact that God
is working with us on our journey from darkness to the light of inner development, the Inner world will no longer be questioned. New values and new goals will be revealed as this destruction parallels the impact of the descending spirit. The day will come when we will look back and wonder at our blindness and be shocked by our selfish and materialistic past. The future will prove itself to be the best yet.
The Cosmic Age is a time for all people to understand how consciousness changes as
new straight-knowledge unfolds trust in God. Guidance comes to individuals who sincerely
seek to know more, not for self alone, but to share that knowledge.
IN GOD WE TRUST. Ponder this.
