The energy emanating from Shamballa is the animating force running through all ‘power points’, sacred centers or sites throughout the planet. Shamballa stands as the ‘One Central Point’ or innermost Heart of our Universal system.
The planetary system can be likened to the system of charkas & nadis in the human body. Each are fed by one central power source. Whether this ‘power’ is called Kundalini, the Holy Spirit, Shekinah, or simply the Divine Life, It is expressed through a complex system of micro & macro-cosmic inter-relationships.
“It is the prana or mana of eastern metaphysics, the “vril,” the universal medium of occultists, the anima mundi of alchemy. In China it is known as “qi” ..”the primal matrix of creation from which springs the yin and yang forces that give rise to substance and material forms”
The more conscious you become of the interconnectivity & synchronised activity between the human, planetary, solar & galactic levels of existence it is easier to see how magnetic & electrical currents & ‘activity’ in any part of the universal matrix is linked & inter-dependent.
At key points on the planetary physical-etheric grid lie recognisable power centers such as Mount Kailash, Mount Shasta or Mount Zion. Hierarchy & Humanity are themselves seen as ‘centers’ or outpost for the power generated from the originating or Supreme Center, we call Shamballa.
Shamballa is “ the prototypic Holy Land of which all other Holy Lands such as Jerusalem, Delphi and Benares are or have been secondary reflections.” In many traditions and mythologies this primordial center ‘point’ it is known under various names, ‘White Isle’ “White mountain’ ‘Mount of Salvation.’ Its symbol is also seen in the “Tree of Life’ at the center of the Terrestrial Paradise.
Accompanying the idea of Shamballa as the ‘Sacred Central Place’ or ‘Heart’ of this self-organising universal system, it is easier to glimpse how this may be fed by the same One Universal Power. Interrelationships between micro and macrocosmic centers & systems can in one view see the energy emanating from Shamballa as a great ‘stepping down’ process. This ‘Central Heart’ pulses the entire system with ‘Life’ current along definite pathways & via specific alignments to each & every ‘satellite’ or organising sub-center. This represents part of the Grand Cosmic or Universal Order.
When our Solar System, Planetary system & human body is seen in this light then some of the processes of the Solar or Planetary Logos, viewed within the context of this “Divine” order take on more immediate relevance and relationship.
“In line with the notion of “Gaia’ which sees the planet as an integrated whole, expanded to the entire cosmos the web of “Life’ sees an interactive and evolving single living entity, with each part cooperating with every other part to promote a continuation and evolution of more life. All the planet’s self-regulating mechanisms, point to this conclusion.”
This Life is seen as a Supra-Being organized around a Supreme center which we give the name, Shamballa.
In this way, it is much more possible to find our position in the wider scheme by accepting & tracing complex inter-relatedness. For example the following alignments are active in this cycle.
A solar system of the fourth order.
The fourth scheme in the system.
The fourth chain in the scheme.
The fourth globe in the chain.
The fourth round.
This simultaneous alignment “results in the clearing of a channel direct from the heart of our scheme through every ring-pass-not to the cosmic correspondence, found outside the solar sphere.”
The planetary centers chakras or power points permit the entry of force from the cosmos itself, or of extra-systemic electrical vitality.
Overall harmony in the system maynot always necessarily be seen existing at times at a ‘local’ level. “. This super-stimulation results in what looks to us like cataclysms, and a stupendous shattering of forms, but it is simply the necessary sequence to the vitalization of the life within the form, and the breaking of the limiting form unable to bear the cosmic action.”
According to Rene Guenon Shambhala-Agarttha, “is related to the zodiacal sign of Libra, which means “balance” or “scales,” and is the quintessential point of balance for the planet; and in precisely the same sense this “Directorate” is a stabilizing and balancing force in the life of ‘the race.’
“Our solar Logos has not yet attained true rhythm, but for millennia of cycles the equilibrising process must go on. Nor has our planetary Logos achieved equilibrium, and the even balancing of forces, therefore until His point in evolution and His objective vision is known and it is known also which center in the solar body is vitalized by His life….” [TCF1090]
A study of our place in the Grand order of the entire “System’ of which we are an intrinsic and integral part, will steadily reveal not only the polar influences and play of interconnecting magnetic currents that form the ‘electrical intercourse’ [TCF1070] between our planetary scheme and our immediate neighbours, but what will stand revealed is the overall ‘Life’ current that powers Solar & Galactic activity vitalising and animating every aspect of the Universal Whole.
Life is impulsed from Shamballa, the Supreme Center. The earth as a spiritual being operates under the same self-governing and self maintaining evolutionary principles as are evident in human beings.
According to the ancient cosmology the synchronization of the Universal Scheme “was rendered possible because one universal energy gave rise to the multiplicity of all known energies.” The energetic rapport between human, planetary and Galactic systems can be seen playing out in the simple energetic correspondence between the earths magnetic field which “fluctuates between eight and sixteen times per second and the predominant rhythm of our brains which lies in the same area…we find that frequency associated with physiology… both planetary and personal, are governed by the same timekeeper.”
Throughout time many names have been given to the Supreme Center from which all life is ‘inspired’ & ordered into activity. This is the zone of the Absolute. From this “Sacred Place” the triplicity of power (Will-Love-Intelligence) that is at the center or core of our heart, or the Heart of Solar System or the Galaxy, emanates.
Shamballa’s ‘veiled nature’ is not only the subject of myths & legends but is also at the ‘heart’ of the initiatory process, whether viewed or ‘taken’ at a microcosmic or macrocosmic level. For the initiate the relationship with this Supreme center moves from metaphorical or symbolic terms & becomes a ‘magnetic center’ which ‘calls’ and demands knowledge & acquiescence.
This is the Point from which all things proceed and to which all things return.
This is the initiate Hierarchy of superhuman adepts of the Mystery traditions “…located in a paradisaical place… a celestial centre at the foot of a ‘World Mountain or World Tree’ representing the Pole of heaven…They are the supreme authority for this planet, forming the governing core of Shamballa” extending their influence from there out through ‘secondary centers’ and outposts into ‘our world.’
The representative physical or etheric ‘place’ for Shamballa on the surface of the earth has been the subject of much speculation. “Lamas declare that the profane traveller cannot find the path to Shamballa at all – one must be summoned.’ There is also elaborate myth about an Underworld “Agharti” which in a sense can be see as another or second ‘planetary outpost’ of this Supreme Center.
Whether through the study of cosmic rays, the Sun’s solar flares or electromagnetic oscillations, outer solar or planetary polar influences, magnetic currents, lightening or electricity, we can see that all sources of power have their ‘originating point,’ their source, as well as their direction or ‘purpose’ emanating from the Supreme organising Principle, Shamballa.
Behind each ‘point’ stands the One Point, the location-less center at the ‘heart’ of all locations.
Shamballa is what lies behind each and every center.
It is the Supreme Center, the Central Point from which all manifestation emerges. Shamballa is to be found wherever & whenever one is connected with this central principle, whether that center is at the core or heart of our being, or is represented by the Sun at the center of our solar system or by the Galactic center.
Here is the Lost Paradise re-found & Primordial Eden re-entered.
“The central primordial state is ‘wholly independent of space.’ Unlocalised, this points attainment re-unites creator & created in indivisible union.”
“According to the Taoist doctrine, the perfect sage is he who has arrived at the central point and resides there in indissoluble union with the Principle, sharing its immutability and imitating its actionless activity. He, who has reached the maximum of emptiness, shall be fixed steadfastly in repose.. To return to ones root (to that Principle) is at once the first origin and last end of all beings.”
