Commentary to the Burning Ground Protocol – Long version

It may be said… that triangles and the Triangle network has been the anchor point of our Hierarchy for many decades. Men and women of goodwill are fervently working to ground energies in basic group formation. In fact, it is the smallest, working group formation that can take in cosmic energies in stabilized form.

It has been suggested that rather than work in ‘isolation’ or, maybe a better way to describe it, ‘secondarily’, through the planetary grid we should utilise the Triangle network that has been formed over the decades.

The Burning Ground is the web and through this We (the Hierarchy) may work, burning the stubble of Maya, preparing the earth by tilling with love. (The Initiate, November 2020)

The above phrases are sign posts to the next phase of the Twelves work. However, it requires a deeper understanding than has hitherto been the case. It has been pointed out on various occasions that the work of the Twelves would be different than that of the Triangle work of the men and women of goodwill, however important that work is to the Hierarchy.

The period leading up to 2025 and to that of the re-emergence of the One who all await will require a commitment as well as the application of esoteric knowledge to the task at hand.

– The Triangle network

Concerning the Triangle network, DK has this to say:

At present a pattern of squares is the major construction of the web but this is slowly changing as the divine plan works out. …The effort on Earth today (as seen by the planetary Logos) is to bring about a transformation of the web of the planet and thus slowly change the existing squares into triangles…

The inner web of light which is called the etheric body of the planet is essentially a web of triangles and when the evolutionary process is completed, it will have been organised. 

( IX Esoteric Psychology – TRS)

It is for this reason that the Twelves utilise the existing and established Triangle Network

– The Burning Ground is the web

The Dweller upon the Threshold is the personality – the sum total of all the past and the composite presentation upon the physical plane of all unresolved problems, all undeclared desires, all latent characteristics and qualities, all phases of thought and of self-will, all lower potencies and ancient habits of any of the three bodies (both bad and good). These, in their totality, are brought to the surface of consciousness, there to be dealt with in such a way that their control is broken. The Dweller, the personality,  is then absorbed by the Angel of the Presence, the soul. (XVI Glamour : A world Problem – Section Four – the Technique of Fusion)

It is not only an individual who needs to confront his Dweller, but groups, nations and the planet as a whole. During times of global crisis, humanity questions its existing values and confronts its past, its unresolved problems.  This has created an essential point of crisis on a global level, thereby producing the needed tension by the personality (the Dweller) invoking the soul (the Angel of the Presence) By redirecting the use of the will humanity crosses the Burning Ground, purifying old outdated modes and becoming more inclusive as it constructs the new world civilisation and begins to formulate the new culture. In this process the centres awaken.

The disciple initiates all the processes himself. It is not the Angel or the Dweller but the spiritual man himself who has to employ the will and take definite forward moving action. The essential point of crisis, producing the needed point of tension, is the result of the “invocative decision” of the personality (the Dweller) which, in time, produces an “evocative response” from the Angel (the soul). The two factors involved move together and towards each other. In the centre of the burning ground they meet, and then the lesser light of the personality is absorbed into the greater light of the Angel or soul. (XVI Glamour : A world Problem – Section Four – the Technique of Fusion)

When the mind (the instrument of thought) has become the vehicle of soul life, soul light and soul love, and the etheric web is responsive to the inflow of energy from the mind, then the reorganisation of the individual etheric web takes place. The individual etheric body is only a part, an aspect, of the etheric web of humanity; the steady reorganisation of the many parts leads to a transformation of the whole. In this work of assembling the necessary thought power for constructive work, the etheric web is definitely involved. (XII DINA – Six Stages of Discipleship)

The etheric body is a web of light energy, impulsed or motivated by the type or the quality of the energies to which it responds, from the angle of evolutionary development. (from DNA – Six Stages of Discipleship)

The medium through which this takes place is the Mind. The mind creates or formulates  those thoughtforms (or embodied energies) which express, upon the mental plane, the measure of the disciple’s understanding of the Plan, and his ability to convey the embodied mental energy to the etheric body—unimpeded by the emotional nature or by any lower desire. (XII DNA – Six Stages of Discipleship)

The work of Twelves is to aid in the construction of the planetary body of light

– and through this We (the Hierarchy) may work

Fundamentally, the task set before the Hierarchy is to “let in the light”; but this time not in the sense of revelation, of vision or of illumination.  These latter are all aspects of soul light; the work of the initiate is to aid in the construction of the planetary body of light-substance which will finally reveal the nature of Deity and the glory of the Lord.  It is the planetary correspondence to the light-body through which Christ and all the Sons of God Who have reached perfection finally manifest.  It is a vehicle created by the energy of Will, and it is implemented and “held in being” by the Will.  It expresses itself exoterically by the projection of this will energy, via the central point in each of the seven chakras or lotuses. (XXIV The Rays and Initiations – TSR – Volume V)

To quote from Temple of Light:

The worker is no longer an individual working with others but an essential component in the formation of light that approaches Us in service.

The individuals’ centres have, temporarily, become a vehicle for the formation’s combined focus and, more importantly, for Us to weld the formation into a united Temple of Light, and in summation multiply the energy for connection to earth’s centres. This Lighted Way, from higher to lower, acts like a beacon on inner planes and is seen from afar.  It is attended to by beings of light who are drawn to aid Us at this time.  The connection of the stream of energy creates, firstly a web of light, secondly an encirclement of light and thirdly a channel of light – mark these words well. 

This focus of energy, talismanic in effect, magnetically aligns the Ashramic pull with a line of intent.  The blending with Ashramic hierarchical force and the integrative nature of the formation creates a light-swell of force which reinforces the web of light. This process enables Us to reach the earth with an intensity of love, light and power heretofore unknown. This work is not of group directed power but of committed interaction and conscious cooperation between  the Brotherhood and its members on earth, keep this in mind at all times and enclose it within your hearts.

The creation by the Hierarchy in using the Twelves group formation  of a web of light, an encirclement of light and a channel of light

– burning the stubble of Maya

In Atlantean days, the plane whereon humanity received its major direction or unfoldment was such that the emotional, impulsive nature and the field of maturing desire became dominantly active.  Then the real difficulty within the realm of maya started. 

Then as evolution progressed and the human intellect began to make itself felt, “the four veils of maya” and the great “curtain of glamour” began to condition the mental plane.  (XXIV The Rays and Initiations – TSR)

When a man is under the control of physical, astral and mental forces, he is convinced at the time that they are, for him, right forces. Herein lies the problem of maya. Such forces, however, when they control a man, determine him in a separative attitude and produce an effect which feeds and stimulates the personality and does not bring in the energy of the soul, the true Individuality.

These (undirected impulses) sweep a man into wrong activity and surround him with a whirlpool of effects and of conditions in which he is entirely helpless. He is the victim of mass force, hidden in the animal nature or in the world and the environing circumstances in which he finds himself.( XVI Glamour a World Problem – Section One – The Nature of Glamour)

Maya is not something to be destroyed, dissipated, dissolved or negated.  Maya is in reality an aspect of time and connotes to the initiate the mass of creative forces with which he must work; these are swept into form generation and activity, and embody in the transitional, ephemeral, present moment the phenomenal point in evolution reached by the life of God.  The work of the initiate, acting under hierarchical inspiration, is to change the present forms into the more adequate forms demanded by the descending life and its dynamic activity.  We are therefore dealing with the precipitated aspect of divine evolutionary process.

The major type of energy with which the initiate works upon the physical plane is the seventh, the ray or energy of ritual, of ceremony, of order and of law.  The work done within the veils (of maya) is one of rearrangement and the ordination and coordination of the forces, present as existent maya; this must provide, in time and space, the forms through which the plans of the Hierarchy can materialise, the souls of all forms can be subjected to the needed experience, and so progress towards the fulfilment of the will of God. (XXIV The Rays and Initiations – TSR – The Fourteen Rules for group Initiation)

Add to this an understanding and the practice of the Technique of Indifference… What is this technique? What is indifference? … it signifies refusal to be identified with anything save the spiritual reality as far as that is sensed and known at any given point in time and space. It is, therefore, a much stronger and vital thing than what is usually meant when the word is used. . Indifference, technically understood, signifies direct descent from there to here, without deviation or distortion. He applies the technique of indifference for, if he does not, that which he is seeking to express may be held up and arrested by etheric force or by the veils of maya. He works consequently from a point of intense concentration; he refuses any “attachment” to any form or plane as he projects the energy into and [Page 264] through the three worlds. (XVI Glamour a World Problem – Section Three – The Ending of Glamour)

The work done within the veils (of maya) is one of rearrangement and the ordination and coordination of the forces…  This requires the worker to stand in full neutrality and from a point of intense concentration and identification with the soul and the Ashram

– preparing the earth by tilling with love

To quote from Temple of Light:

This process (of Twelves formations) enables Us (the Hierarchy) to reach the earth with an intensity of love, light and power heretofore unknown and work with the great vortexes which require a cleansing process to invigorate the linkages so creating more stability in the web; London, New York, Moscow, Tokyo, Darjeeling, Geneva, Rio de Janeiro, Berlin, Brussels, Adelaide and Beijing have set up a relationship, a presence of linkage, which shall be utilised by Us for the purposes of preparation of the Subtle Architecture for Christ’s Return.

The effects of this transmission of energy, directed from Our side shall be manifold – for purposes of world change, for the healing of nations, cities, populations, for the lighted beings to further build the bridge of light – so promised, so near.

Disciples are usually more preoccupied with their desire to help than with the scientific techniques of helping, of active love intelligently applied, to reach and touch soul levels of consciousness with focussed intent and to enrich the outpouring of loving energy from the Ashramic Star.

A Few Words about Protection

Radiating pulses are used for protective purposes by Ashramic workers to secure the light field, this is why such potent group work should always be under Ashramic guidance and sponsorship.

The formative stages of the formation should provide for an exclusion encirclement of light around the participants. From Our perspective we use six encirclements to protect and focus certain energies which are given by Us and lifted from earth. The first of these is centred in the middle of the Twelve radiating outwards and blending with the second which encompasses in a band the participants. The third of these, the exclusion encirclement, is around the outside of the formation, the fourth blends from that to the fifth and finally the sixth which is encompassing and focusing light in circuitous motion. Each of these encirclements is devised for protective purposes. Those that Stand in the Light in waiting (those in a supporting role)should not pass the exclusion encirclement except when called to do so for purpose of the work.

To clarify this, those in a supporting role should visualise themselves being at a distance of at least 10 feet / 3 meters from the Twelves formation.
