INSUPERABLE COSMIC FORCES began the prophesied acceleration and advancement of the Divine Plan for Earth much earlier this century, but only relatively recently has this necessary process been substantially hastened. By way of its more tangible effects, therefore, it has attracted the attention of a larger percentage of the world’s population, and it is these more aware persons who are responsible for introducing today’s novel thought-trends, elaborate cosmologies, expanded spiritual philosophies and new healing modalities, which collectively have come to be regarded as the New Age movement. The ongoing changes that are currently being so avidly discussed and researched by those who belong to this movement represent a very important preliminary phase of the Divine Plan for mankind at the end of this Piscean cycle, yet they constitute only an integral part of a much larger process, the concluding stage of which, as far as humanity is presently concerned, has generally and metaphorically come to be known as Judgement Day. The destiny of every single soul upon Earth is inseparably linked with this momentous and now impending time of critical human choice and planetary transformation.
These culminating world events within the vast cycles and sub-cycles of cosmic unfoldment have occurred many times during the past and they will continue to take place whenever the dawn of a major epoch is about to break. They present, therefore, in and of themselves, nothing new, yet the great opportunity that is offered to all life which they influence is unprecedented for that cycle.
Approximately every 25,000 years the hour of Judgement Day strikes for planet Earth, and each 75,000-year period represents a major cycle which yields its own major Judgement Day. These most important occasions present great catalysts for the spiritual advancement of accomplished souls, and some aware persons have more aptly termed such a momentous period The Harvest Time, signifying that all those who have learned well the lessons of the physical plane will be harvested into, or promoted to, a higher, more expansive level of education and experience.
In the past, certain individuals have managed to harvest themselves early. These assiduous personalities have often been referred to as ‘enlightened’, and techniques of self-liberation, e.g., yoga, meditation, etc. have addressed this possibility, although sitting for enlightenment has ever been lengthy and difficult, and only those persons possessing an indomitable will and unyielding diligence have succeeded. Today, however, at the end of this 75,000-year major cycle, and consequently due to the tremendous spiritual opportunity afforded each and every person on Earth, it is much easier for all humanity to ascend in consciousness, and groups of souls will be harvested during the birth of the New World in accordance with their ability to attune to the grace of the present period and to thereby succeed in raising the frequency of their consciousness, for the key to success at the Harvest Time is vibration. Each individual’s consciousness (which is an integral part of the planetary vibration) must be raised to a minimal level in order to qualify for graduation into the New World.
There are many legends of a ‘Day of Judgement’ at which time the future destiny of mankind is decided. Behind these legends there lies an important truth, although the fanciful imagination of certain religious adherents has in the past misinterpreted the perfectly simple and logical fact of necessary karmic reconciliation into a distorted and whimsical idea of ‘everlasting damnation’. It is a perfect part of the Divine Plan that cosmic forces bring to an end cycles, ideologies, societies and civilisations when the due and right time comes. This is done in order to make place for that which is better and which will prove adequate, and not limiting, to the awakening consciousness and to the emerging life.
The Judgement Day as found in scriptural behests is a conveniently recallable simile for a necessary separation of souls, when human beings who are not sufficiently advanced to progress with the rest will be excluded from the ongoing stream of life. With regard to the imminent Judgement Day, divine ordinance will ensure that the development of such immature souls will continue upon another planet where conditions are better suited to their specific needs and more befitting to their level of evolvement.
Leading up to the ‘Day of Reckoning’ when the ‘Book of Records’ will be opened for everyone to see, all those who have failed to take full advantage of the spiritual opportunities afforded them during many lifetimes will depart from the rounds of Earthly incarnation where a more advanced life-expression is about to begin. However, this does not mean extinction or eternal damnation of the soul, even though it does impose a considerable though incalculable delay to its onward journey. While such delay is unquestionably serious, nevertheless the universal Law of Recompense knows no biased leniency and so can show no special sympathy for those who do not make the grade. Such underdeveloped souls are clearly in need of more experience upon the battlefield of physical-plane life, and that experience they will be given by law, even though it may mean innumerably additional lifetimes, many of which will include much suffering. Conversely, all those souls who successfully meet the greater requirements of the impending Harvest Time will be liberated from the wheel of rebirth and will be entirely free of the obligation to incarnate in any of the fallen worlds on any planet ever again.
It may be recognised, then, that with regard to today’s cyclic spiritual opportunity there are three distinct groups:
i) Those who, having failed to learn the lessons of the physical plane over many lifetimes, will be forced to leave the Earth in order to later incarnate on another physical world so that they may begin again to learn by way of the unique experiences and opportunities that are available only in the third density.
ii) Those who have learned sufficiently from and passed the tests of the physical-plane school and who will have therefore earned their promotion to the fourth- or fifth-density classroom of life where they shall proceed with their higher learning. It should be understood that such a graduation does not mean Liberation or perfect Enlightenment, and the promoted soul will at some stage in the future be compelled by karmic law to return, via reincarnation, to the physical plane in order to once again attempt to achieve the one Goal of every unenlightened human being: transfiguration, or ultimate Liberation from matter (including the more subtle matter of the 4th and 5th densities). Therefore, the graduation to the 4th or 5th densities is actually a temporary promotion into more rarefied spheres of existence and experience, and so may be termed ‘the lesser harvest’.
iii) Those who have discovered and gone the Path of Return* and who are, therefore, able to be lifted up into the sixth cosmic sphere – the Body of Christ – and so who will attain the Final Liberation from all the lower worlds of fallen nature by being harvested back into the divine Kingdom. This is the true Harvest and has been the prime focus of all Avatars throughout human history.
* The Path of Return and its requirements – scarcely known but vital esoteric information – is available to all earnest and intelligent seekers (see end of book).

Most Christians today do not fully realise that a vital part of the great mission of Jesus two thousand years ago was to attempt to prepare humanity for this present time of unprecedented planetary transformation and spiritual opportunity. It was with the objective of saving as many souls as possible from avoidable delay and suffering that the Piscean Christ said to his disciples: “Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel to every creature; he that believeth and is baptised shall be saved, but he that believeth not shall be damned”. For baptism, and its corresponding rites in other religions, is a sign of the dedication of one’s life in service to the Divine Plan and to humanity, and the one who grasps the truth of universal law and so resolutely forgets the self in order to look forward and upward in the right direction, will certainly be amongst the saved who escape the “damnation” of the succeeding Judgement Day. The word “damned” is indicative of the rejection from the present life-current which is about to be promoted, and a throwing back into the preceding of the successive life-streams; a veritable damnation indeed for all those who would prefer to move ahead spiritually and to behold the splendour of a new human consciousness and a new world.
After the Great Separation – the period of which Jesus referred to as “The Sifting Time”, what the Koran terms “Kiyamat”, and which immediately precedes the new era that the Mayan Prophecy calls “The Golden Age” – world conditions will be specially adapted for the rapid progress of the more advanced souls, and will therefore be wholly unsuitable for those who are at a much lower stage of development. The more intense frequencies of energy upon the planet in the future would not rouse the higher nature of the less-developed man, but would instead stimulate and amplify his lower passions, so that while he would not himself benefit by being on Earth at that time, he would also present difficulties for the progress of the more advanced souls. The New World stands ready and waiting today to admit humanity into its higher vibratory field of life, but those who have failed to learn the vital lessons which it has been their choice to learn or not to learn for many incarnations, will be unable to venture forth due to incompatibility of vibration; such is a fundamental ruling decreed by the forthcoming Judgement Day.

The Sheep and the Goats
From The Aquarian Gospel
of Jesus the Christ
33 Be ready at every moment of the day and night, because when you expect him not the Lord will come.
34 Behold, when he will come with all his messengers of light, the Book of Life, and that of Records, shall be opened up – the books in which the thoughts and words and deeds are written down.
35 And everyone can read the records he has written for himself, and he will know his doom before the judge shall speak, and this will be the sifting time.
36 According to their records men will find their own.
37 The judge is Righteousness, the king of all the Earth, and he will separate the multitudes as shepherds separate the sheep and goats.
38 The sheep will find their places on the right, the goats upon the left, and every man will know his place.
39 And then the judge will say to those upon the right, “You blessed of the Father-God, come unto your inheritance, which was prepared for you from times of old.
40 “You have been servants of the race; I was hungry and you gave me bread; was thirsty and you gave me drink; was naked and you gave me clothes;
41 “Was sick, you ministered to me; was in prison and you came to me with words of cheer; I was a stranger and in your homes I found a home.”
42 Then will the righteous say, “When did we see you hungry, thirsty, sick, imprisoned or a stranger at our gates and ministered to you?”
43 And the judge will say, “You served the sons of men, and whatsoever you have done for these, that you have done for me.”
44 The judge will say to those upon the left, “Depart from me; you have not served the sons of men.
45 “I was hungry and you gave me naught to eat; was thirsty and you gave me naught to drink; was a stranger and you drove me from your door; I was imprisoned and was sick, you did not minister to me.”
46 Then these will say, “When did we thus neglect to care for you? When did we see you hungry, thirsty, sick, a stranger or in prison and did not minister to you?”
47 And then the judge will say, “Your life was full of self; you served the self and not your fellow man, and when you slighted one of these, you slighted and neglected me.”
48 Then will the righteous have the kingdom and the power, and they who are unrighteous shall go forth to pay their debts, to suffer all that men have suffered at their hands.
49 They who have ears to hear and hearts to understand will comprehend these parables.

Past examples of Harvest Times can be verified by referring to esoteric history. The great catastrophe that destroyed Atlantis many thousands of years ago was a veritable Judgement Day of a similar yet lesser order to that which is now impending, and which will, as it did in the end times of Atlantis, reject all those souls who are unqualified to proceed with the remainder of the race. It is probable that in Atlantean times, just as in our own, many or even most people failed to believe or heed the warning signs, their prophets or their predictions, yet today a little intelligent observation and research will highlight clearly to those who remain objective what shall be.
It is plainly evident to all of discerning awareness that, owing to their materialistic attitudes, those who cling to the old and outmoded ways of life will be unfit to continue side by side with the more spiritually-oriented population in the New World. Therefore, it may be seen just how critical it is in these times to subscribe sincerely and fully to all that is new, relevant and righteous, for the Harvest Time is at hand. A mere interest in the truth of the times is most definitely not sufficient. Cursory inquisitiveness never managed to raise anyone’s vibration by very much and will certainly not, by itself, produce a positive result at the Harvest Time. It is the demonstration of love alone that shall positively affect a person’s consciousness. Therefore, active and altruistic response to the present need is demanded today in order for success to be known, not passive acquiescence.
