Principles of Conscious Living
1: A New Relationship with Ageless Truths
years ago now, in response to a question about right and wrong, DK drew a
circle. Locating a point just above to the centre of the circle, he then
drew a line which, when it reached the rim, went clockwise around it to
another point on its opposite side. This, he said, was right.
then drew another line from the same near-centre point which, when it
reached the rim, went anti clockwise around it and arrived at the same
point on the opposite side. This, he said, was wrong.
you draw this yourself and meditate upon it, casting judgement may no
longer be so easy. The anti-clockwise line may be longer but, eventually,
it reaches the same point.
personalities and some threads of consciousness are designed to go
anticlockwise rather than clockwise.
does not mean that there are no valid distinctions between right and wrong
to be made by a spiritually aware person, but it does show the process of
evolving consciousness expels nothing and will eventually call everything
back no matter which way round the circle it is travelling.
this in mind, consider that it may be beneficial rather than not to the
development of consciousness that one generation rejects the values and
guidance of the established spiritual values and mores to take the risk of
establishing a new relationship with the objective perennial truths which
are the bedrock of our spiritual and religious systems. Too long have we
churned out the sentimental and simplistic view that older societies have
a better connection with the truth and that we will try and imitate them.
If we do that we will never convert into opportunities the challenges that
arise in modern life.
rejection of the old values creates an opportunity to replace the habitual
response with something that may encourage a more confident clockwise
motion. As with any relationship, our relationship to spiritual knowledge
is dulled by habituality and a sense of duty. To break and remake may
restore vitality. It
may, of course, have just the reverse effect because the old may not be
replaced by anything that can serve consciousness. All developments which
hold out a major opportunity to consciousness contain a risk. One of the
greatest of these risks has been the development of the Western style
individuality. We can either
make it work for us or it will send us home by the longer route.
Magian astrologers of Afghanistan who have a custodial role on the planet
and with whom the DK Foundation has had some dealings at different times
in the past 7 years, consider that the dye is cast and that, of itself,
Western individuality ensures anti-clockwise development. This view comes
across in a very uncompromising way in recent conversation with the Magi
on the matter of 2012 and is just the kind of challenge the personality
needs to bring it into a state of awareness.
this latest round of conversations will be available in published form by
DK Foundation’s approach to astrology is based upon the need that we
have to make our strong personalities serve the process of alignment with
the soul. The way forward for our strong personalities is via purpose to

has long been anxious to reintroduce ten commandments in the form of ten
principles for every day living in order that a new generation who may not
have heard, understood or accepted them in another form may reconnect with
these perennial truths.
