THE TRUE CONSTITUTION OF MAN
Here is a wonderful text by C.W. Leadbeater on the true constitution of man …
“This, then, is the true constitution of man. In the first place he is a Monad, a Spark of the Divine. Of that Monad the ego is a partial expression, formed in order that he may enter evolution, and may return to the Monad with joy, bringing his sheaves with him in the shape of qualities developed by garnered experience.
“The ego in his turn puts down part of himself for the same purpose into lower worlds, and we call that part a personality, because the Latin word persona means a mask, and this personality is the mask which the ego puts upon himself when he manifests in worlds lower than his own.
“Just as the ego is a small part and an imperfect expression of the Monad, so is the personality a small part and an imperfect expression of the ego; so that what we usually think of as the man is only in truth a fragment of a fragment.” –from Link: “A Textbook of Theosophy,” by C.W. Leadbeater. (2004). Urbana, Illinois: Project Gutenberg. Retrieved 27 July 2016, from http://www.gutenberg.org/ebooks/12902 … Search: Chapter VI. After Death … [Paragraphing is mine. –AC]
EGO: THE GLASS CEILING
When we place our Awareness in the third or fourth dimension … in the physical world or the astral realm (the realm of feeling), then ego is like a glass ceiling above us.
This glass ceiling is a ‘permeable membrane’ … coarser astral matter cannot pass through it. When our astral matter becomes well enough refined, though, we can easily pass through the glass ceiling of ego, to worlds of wonder beyond.
FEARSOME GUARDIANS OF THE EGO
Hounds of the Barrier
As we approach the egoic barrier, there are those, set to guard it, who vie with us to prevent our penetration of the barrier. These are called by Thoth “the hounds of the barrier” …
Link: “The Emerald Tablets of Thoth, the Atlantean,” translated by Doreal, and search the term: hounds of the barrier … https://books.google.com/books?id=MXQWqifpxvEC&pg=PA363&lpg=PA363&dq=hounds+of+the+barrier+thoth+doreal&source=bl&ots=TFLt1G8Lzo&sig=7UTLnkChWHlHmifwabh9Qdei33g&hl=en&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwjKnruT-5POAhXFJCYKHYSQCb4Q6AEIMjAD#v=onepage&q=hounds%20of%20the%20barrier%20thoth%20doreal&f=false ..
These fearsome beings become our last test in the Awakening.
Dweller on the Threshold
The Theosophists speak in hushed tones of another sort of being, the “dweller on the threshold.” Madame Blavatsky thought this might be our own incompletely dissolved astral body from a prior lifetime …

In an Ascension context, such as we are now experiencing, Wanderers …

… come from distant shores to participate in this last test, through which we may, each of us, sift past the illusion of Duality to the Fifth Dimension, where abide Christ consciousness and unconditional love.

VISUALIZATION TO OVERCOME EGO
Channeled by Alice B. Clagett
27 July 2016
I was inspired to this visualization by the teachings of the spiritual teachings of the Buddhists …
Link: “Plum Village: Mindfulness Practice Center” … http://plumvillage.org/about/thich-nhat-hanh/ ..
First, imagine that you are a galaxy …

Next imagine that God is the galaxy, and you are in point of Light, a point of bright Awareness, within Him.

In love, light and joy,
I Am of the Stars
