the synthesis between past and present
reincarnating process is a system of recycling within a cosmic structure
where the purpose of a lower level of consciousness is to receive from a
higher level and to make a return. This process creates both manifestation
and consciousness: the higher level manifests to the lower and the lower,
changed by this gift, makes its return in the form of consciousness
hears often in spiritual circles that it is love that activates the
Universe. What precisely does this mean? To ponder on the nature of the
flow of force through the Universe will give insight.
Universe is the phenomenal appearance of a multitude of different kinds
and levels of consciousness each attracting, processing, returning and
each deriving its purpose from what it receives and gives back.
human in incarnation is a synthesis of new and old: the new is provided
from the soul plane in the form of a new lifetime with new opportunities;
the old are the mental dispositions, emotional patterns that have been
created by those lives that have gone before and that are the substance of
our subtle and dense physical bodies. The human being in incarnation is
very much an assembled kit.
soul gives life to the personality; the personality turns life into
consciousness and returns it to the soul. That is the purpose of humanity.
What that means in specific terms, in each human life, will depend upon
the design of the personality, the personality ray and the egoic ray.
personality of each of us is made up of the new and the old. The old
predisposes us to think, to react and to behave in certain ways. These
predispositions have to be watched very closely because they stand to pull
us away from the new direction provided with the new incarnation.
the past is a repository of experience and once we are clear about our
rightful way forward, we can bring out the past to good effect, enriching
our experience in incarnation with the fruits of what has gone before.

life upon which there has been a focus for lifetimes; the house in which
the Moon is found indicates an area of life in which there has been recent
experience. From either or both of these areas may comes aptitudes or
specific skills that may provide the frame for the creative contribution.
the right kind of understanding, the past can be made to service the
present to good effect. When we are clear about our rightful direction and
then consciously encourage and draw on remembered capacities we create an
efficient synthesis between past and present. We serve our own
developmental purposes and those of our planet when we include and redeem

lives of people with no concept of development or no means to identify
what is progressive and what is regressive in the context of their lives.
there is no means to understand or recognize the challenge of the new, a
life will be driven by the sense of familiarity to restore old ways of
being and new opportunities stand to be strangled by the dead hand of the
past. There is no movement onwards and so there can be no redemption.
past is a bad master but a good servant.
