Hedron was at one time a planet in this solar system. Once a paradise of beauty and culture, Hedron contained within its causal body a divine plan for a golden-age civilization. On this planet was an evolution of souls destined to outpicture the flame of divine love under the direct influence of Helios and Vesta in the center of our solar system.
The fall of Hedron
The evolutions of Hedron basked in the sun, they rejoiced in the love of God, but after a time, that rejoicing, that childlike innocence, turned to selfishness and to the pleasure cult. And so the word “hedonist” has descended all the way from Hedron as the sign of those who make the goal of life the pleasure of the five senses. The totally selfish consciousness of those evolving on that planet resulted in their self-annihilation. They destroyed themselves and they destroyed their planet.
Those who were counted worthy, the remnant of the Hedonists (or the Hedrons) were allowed to reembody on Maldek. At that time Maldek was a very pure, virgin planet. With the coming of the Hedrons, this planet was also perverted through a pleasure cult.
The Hedrons were not a new evolution. They had great experience in science and in war, and they were able to create weapons greater than our most modern nuclear weapons, inventions greater than our most modern forms of transportation in air, on sea and land. And so they brought about a nuclear holocaust on Maldek and destroyed themselves. All that remains of that planet is the asteroid belt between Mars and Jupiter.
Once again there were souls thrust from physical embodiment floating on the astral plane. Once again, life provided an opportunity. The Lords of Karma determined that two-thirds of the evolution of that entire planet were not worthy of perpetuation. They were brought to final judgment and they passed through the second death. One third who were considered redeemable, those who were humanitarians, philanthropists, scientists, who had resisted war and inharmony, who had resisted the misuse of love—love as obedience and love as vision—were allowed to reembody upon the earth.
Thus the earth is beset with a race of people who have a previous evolution of the pleasure cult, of science, of creating babies in test tubes, of creating all forms of life, of controlling genes and chromosomes, of waging war. These people (who are called laggards because they lagged behind the spiritual evolution of this system) embodied on Atlantis, and they began to repeat the same way of life, and so earth also became infested with this pleasure cult.
The golden age of Hedron
In a dictation on December 31, 1986, Gautama Buddha opened the record and the memory of what was once a golden age on the planet Hedron:
Beloved of the Golden Sun of the Infinite One, how art thou now transported into another golden sphere—a sphere of memory that does become a Reality only in the Eternal Now. For the mortal cannot capture the infinitude of a presence of a once-manifest Golden Age so long past, now forgot.
Come, then, for I would speak to you in this golden sphere, once thy habitat, once the kingdom of joy. And this joy, beloved, is the true bliss of the Divine Union, a joy of a paradise that seemed as though it would never end.
This golden sphere, beloved, where I am taking you is in fact the Causal Body and the point of origin of a planet closest to the sun, identified to you by beloved Lanello as “Hedron.” What you know of Hedron is its descent into a cult of pleasure, but I bring you to the golden sphere of a paradise that was beyond all necessity of human pleasure.
For here I would that you might experience for an hour with me this night what it is to be in the warmth of the golden sunshine of love and to know the fullness of all joy in all chakras of being, oneness with the twin flame and with God. So, beloved, it is a reprieve from a planet called “Earth” where you sojourn and have entered to tarry with the Lord and to toil for the hour of his appearing....
Thus, hearts of Light, it is a giant sphere that takes us there for contemplation upon a perfection so light, so beautiful, so immediately the transfer of the temple of Helios and Vesta—truly the first point of qualification of this “sun-light” by a planetary body followed by the calling and the office of other planetary bodies of the seven spheres.
Beloved ones, to enter here now you may see the beauty, the verdure, the fragrance, the harmony of an existence that each and every one of you knows exists somewhere in the vast somewhere. It is a memory like this, beloved, that endows all human existence with hope, with certainty of faith and conviction born of experience that Earth is not as God intended it to be and that there is an Eternal Now waiting for the soul.
I give you a moment to explore—with eye and swiftness of Mercurian feet, winged-sandaled—meadows, forests, streams, vast bodies of water, sky and lightness, elemental life, visible angels—not overpopulated nor under, for on a small orb such as this many can evolve when harmony is as natural as the grace of birds and flowers in springtime.
Sit back, as it were, beloved, and relax in this atmosphere. Absorb from this great Causal Body of golden light and pink glow-ray a peace, a recharging, a sense of divine purpose and ultimate goals, and know that all that separates you from this experience is time, space and karma—kal-desh....
Now then, this golden sphere does not leave one passive, without activity and challenge; it affords new vistas, almost a sense of urgency to unfold cosmic splendor and science. Here ascended masters, unascended ones see the immediacy of becoming God and more of God. Earth’s playground—or playpen—is a very limited challenge. From this level the whole of the Spirit-Matter cosmos beckons. Any one of you can consider those things that would take your heart and mind and diligence if you but had the hours, if you had taken from you the struggle and the dire challenges of earthly existence. Know, then, that there is no plateau in infinity, no end of opportunity, discovery, happiness, creativity.
In the wonder of this beauty where many of the inhabitants of Hedron could see to the very heart of the Sun itself, the presence of Helios and Vesta, there eventually came about on the part of some, absent of true gratitude and appreciation for these opportunities unlimited, a desiring for other discoveries in lesser spheres, in lower vibrations.
Why, then, would they desire less than all of this? Because in the lower domain, you see, they would achieve notoriety and a human kind of a godhood not subject to a hierarchical chain of command; they would achieve independence and the fulfillment of a desire for a pleasure that would slowly begin with a titillation of the outer senses instead of the stimulus of the inner sensitivities of the soul.
Gradations of vibration are subtle, beloved, and the one least aware of his own fluctuation is the individual himself. Only a single blind spot, and one (thinking he is yet in the corona of the Sun) may have strayed many miles from the highest vibrations of Maitreya. Many have not understood what is known as the fall of angels, but I tell you, beloved, the descent is always by imperceptible degrees.
Now, if you but think of this eventuality on Earth, you are very much aware, for instance, that those who are ignorant know not that they are ignorant, even as in the animal kingdom the animal that is clumsy knows not that he is clumsy. You have all seen insensitivity of conscience, of awareness of Christ Self allow individuals to rationalize heinous crimes against humanity, all manner of perverse relationships and actions against one another justified for some so-called righteous cause, even as you have seen individuals locked into pockets of self-deception believing they are God-fearing and of the highest path or, on the other hand, aware they have chosen the left and yet so very certain it is correct.
Thus, if you will attempt to understand the mysteries of life from examples and equations of Earth, you may come to some very practical as well as sobering conclusions to the questions you ask—primarily: Why would one leave the very center of the throne of grace in the heart of God in the Great Central Sun to descend for experimental purposes or other reasons?
I show you gradations of light and darkness and how these have resulted, in fallen angels, as a direct opposition to the Most High. This is easier to understand than the apathy of the sons and daughters of God who stray just a little and all of whose actions seem to be Godlike and for righteousness. These pedal in one place. They know not what place they are in; they have no sense of co-measurement—neither betwixt Earth and the lower astral plane nor Earth and the Golden City of Light or the Golden Planet of Light in this sphere where we are.
Blessed ones, the shadows creep and fall across the unsuspecting soul. No matter what plane of occupation, whether the etheric or in dense Earth, once one has entered the decision to be in relativity, a relative good and evil based on a position and a defense of one’s right—“my right”—from thenceforth, beloved, one can calculate neither the plummeting nor the ascent. Something apart from oneself must report the goings and the comings—the rise and fall of the soul.
The causal body of Hedron
There is a Causal Body for each planet of the system, and there are spheres of Light that contain the record of all good in that collective Causal Body. The Causal Body of each planetary home contains the entire momentum of the members of the Great White Brotherhood and unascended souls who have evolved upon it, and may be called upon to “swing round.’ And in that swing it becomes congruent to those earthbound, as you say, and can transmit in an instant a Light and a power that can also consume on an instant.
This consuming, to the inhabitants of such a sphere so touched by the sphere of the Causal Body, can seem as utter destruction, desolation or annihilation, as though someone flashed a light and a goodly portion of the known world were to be changed. This is a method of drawing a world abruptly back into an alignment with the inner blueprint. It is not the preferred method, beloved, but it does avert ultimate chaos and destruction of souls.
What occurs in this method is a reducing of the identity of all. For to take from the individual his karma or his human creation before he has gained a mastery of the Light in the opposite dimension—that is, in the dimension of the I AM Presence—is therefore to reduce his identity. For one’s karma and one’s human creation is one’s self until one has transmuted it and ascended to a higher level of self-awareness.
Thus, if you can imagine a flash of light as a nuclear explosion coming upon the planet only for a split second, in that moment God would have the power to reduce all equally, let us say, by ten percent, by fifteen percent, depending on what reduction would be necessary in order to avert an utter calamity or cataclysm. This has been done in the past. Entire evolutions have been “dwarfed,” you might say—reduced in life span, reduced in stature. Thus, as the Evil was cut back, so the potential for greater Good was also cut back until that evolution should come unto a love for and an obedience to the higher Law and Lord.
The drawback to this solution to a planetary equation that was once the dilemma of Hedron or Maldek and is fast becoming the dilemma of Earth is that there is no lesson learned. There is the same potential for Evil as that which created the greater danger in the first place. Without the intercession of World Teachers, those so reduced will simply continue on in their old ways, and the Darkness will mount again as new Nimrods come forth to build new towers greater than before.
So you see, beloved ones, there is a certain futility to this solution; for the planets that have received it have not merited further World Teachers, having been given many, even as many have been sent to Earth. Thus, without an Intercessor, a Maitreya, they have simply built again, just as the grass grows and the weeds return once the fields have been cut or the lawn mowed.
Thus, the advantage is a certain gaining of time. And this time was gained in Earth through the flood of Noah, the sinking of continents, and the reduction of the life span of the evolutions on Terra. And even withal, teachers were sent again and again. Yet, the joy of it all is that there has been a harvest of souls who have ascended for the gaining of that time, for the setting back of the potential of Evil on Earth. Thus, there is in the annals of Earth, as we read them this night from the golden sphere, some salutary word that souls have been won for the ascension and have attained a Godhood that otherwise might have been lost....
One of the dilemmas that face the Cosmic Council and the Lords of Karma at this juncture of the history of this system of worlds is that some among the lightbearers descended too far, lost the way, identified with fallen angels through only a splinter of pride, which grew and festered and began to dominate their existence. These lightbearers, then, lost the momentum, lost the wind in their sails.
It is about these lightbearers that we are most concerned, that the Darjeeling Council and the messengers are concerned—that they, having a memory of higher spheres, not sensing the gradations of consciousness over which they have crossed, do not have a sense of the danger, do not have a sense of the jeopardy in which their souls are placed when such forces of Darkness as are being witnessed today are coming nearer and nearer a confrontation on the planet.
This planet where they should be but pilgrims, sojourners in the way, easily able to take their leave of it, has now become to many of these children of the Sun a prison house from which they cannot escape. They have lost the key to open the prison doors, and unless some make the call, no angel will come to open those doors. This is a far greater dilemma to Sanat Kumara than the plight of a mankind that has ever walked the easy, downward way.
We seek to save that which has lost the First Estate, those who were once in the kingdom of joy. It is our hope that in saving these, there might be an engrafting of the Word unto those who have it not. Unless, then, the firstfruits be saved from psychicism and all manner of false prophecy, how, then, can there be another opportunity for humanity at large?...
I will tell you, then, beloved, that the golden sphere of Light where you now abide is about to be transferred.... As all lightbearers have entered it, now the golden sphere itself does begin to move toward planet Earth. When it is fully accomplished,... you will know that there is a very large golden sphere of light that literally touches the Earth in its lower portion.
It is like a tree house into which you climbed as a child. This place, beloved, forms the figure-eight flow with the “Place Prepared” below. It provides you with a haven of paradise even as you work the works of God at hand. It provides you with an inner blueprint and a power source that you have not known.
This sphere, beloved, is positioned with its center being the throne that I occupy as Lord of the World. Thus, I was called to other octaves by the Cosmic Council and Sanat Kumara many weeks ago, and to me they presented this proposal. For Hedron has long gone beyond the pale of restoration and has become, as you know, an asteroid belt.
Therefore, the Cosmic Council decreed: Why not deliver this sphere to those lightbearers of Earth who have demonstrated the responsibility and the ability to produce what is necessary? Why not give to them access to so great a reservoir of light and kingdom of joy that those who have been called by Serapis to ascend and stand with him as the stalwarts of Thermopylae might have almost unlimited wealth, abundance, opportunity, wisdom—and at the same time an escape hatch if the various courses of action should come to pass that have to do with the return of mankind’s karma?...
For you, beloved, were a part of the building of this kingdom of joy and this Causal Body; and therefore, because you are here—having volunteered to redeem the karma not only of Earth but of Hedron (for many of its fallen evolutions have reembodied here)—you, then, by your presence have also allowed this event to take place.
Thus, in truth, many upon Earth who did not go the way of the pleasure cult completely but regained their senses and stood fast have, to your credit, substance in this Causal Body. Thus, you have a point of polarity with it and now, for the first time in thousands of years, access to this cumulative momentum of world good.
