through Alice A. Bailey
The entire rhythm of international thinking has to be altered, and that constitutes a slow and arduous task; the evil personalities which, in every country which are responsible for the chaos & uncertainty, have eventually to be replaced by those who can work in cooperation with the rhythm of the seventh ray, and thus produce ordered beauty. (2-668)
These forces, as far as the intelligent peoples of the world are concerned, work insidiously and cloak their effort in fair words, leading even disciples to express hatred of persons and ideologies, fostering hidden seeds of hatred found in many human beings. They fan to fury the fear and hate of the world in an effort to preserve that which is old, and make the unknown appear undesirable, and they hold back the forces of evolution and of progress for their own ends.
These forces which it is well for you to recognize as existing, but there is little that you, as individuals or as groups can do about them beyond seeing to it that there is nothing in you which could make you---unimportant as you are---a focal point for their efforts or an agent for the distribution of their peculiar type of energy---the energy of focused and directed hate, of separation, of fear and pride. With them We who are connected directly with the Hierarchy have to deal, but you can aid more than you know through the regulation of thoughts and ideas, through cultivation of a loving spirit, and through the use of the Great Invocation. (2-75/76)
The Dark Brothers are -- remember this always-- brothers, erring and misguided, yet still sons of the one Father, though straying far, very far, into the land of distances. The way back for them will be long, but the mercy of evolution inevitably forces them back along the path of return in cycles far ahead. Anyone who over-exalts the concrete mind and permits it continuously to shut out the higher, is in danger of straying on the left-hand path. Many so stray ... but come back, and then in the future avoid like errors, in the same way as a child once burnt avoids the fire. It is the man who persists, in spite of warning and of pain, who eventually becomes a brother of darkness...
The dark brother considers not what suffering he may cause; he cares not what agony of mind he brings upon an opponent; he persists in his intention, and desists to from the hurt of any man, woman or child, provided that in the process his own ends are furthered. Expect absolutely no mercy from those opposing the Brotherhood of Light.
One of our immediate educational objectives must be the elimination of the competitive spirit, and the substitution of the cooperative consciousness.(6-74)
The only regret that is justifiable is based on failure to learn the lessons of failure.
Be not in any way discouraged brother of old, if you find the upward way stiff and hard to climb. You are in good company and are not alone.(7-599)
Note : I don't take the predictions from the Lucis Trust for granted as if there is already an Avatar to come. At the end of Kali Yuga, the Kalki Avatar will appear, but this will take another 432,000 years to become a reality. And the rest of the predictions ... we'll see :-)
