In times of cataclysm (such as the Great Flood), some have been able to retreat—into the mountains, into inner chambers, into certain layers and levels of Earth’s surface. This happened prior to the sinking of Atlantis.
After periods of cataclysm, the sons of God would reemerge in various civilizations and differing geographical locales to teach mankind the arts and sciences of culture. They were the lightbearers for the civilization. They would go forth; and they were known as the “lonely ones.” They would come in the name of Sanat Kumara. They kept the flame of the culture of the Great White Brotherhood. As such, they were true keepers of the flame.
Kuan Yin speaks of the path of the “lonely ones”:
Understand that the fallen ones must move in mass numbers. And thus, they form collectives and cells and groups and, by their numbers, attempt to literally ramrod the bastions of freedom; whereas the path of freedom and initiation is one of the individual with God—one alone with God.
The disciples through the ages who have been absorbed in this path of the mystics East and West have separated themselves out from the path of the masses and even of the organizations of the fallen ones. And they have concentrated on the internalization of the Word. At a certain point of attainment, they have become a part of the Great White Brotherhood, and they have seen that the path of the “lonely ones” leads to the community of the Holy Spirit in heaven and on earth that is vast and yet retains the individual integrity, consciousness, and world of its components.
Thus, from the path of the lonely ones and loneliness to the entering in of the Great White Brotherhood, the individual must pass through many initiations. And in this process he is bound to meet organized this and organized that pitted against his right to be an individual, to enjoy his freedoms—whether it is the restriction of labor through the unions or the restriction of management through controls from above, from federal governments and nations limiting the uses of power or of moneys, restricting and prescribing movements and what can and cannot be done, or the control of zoning or the control of so much bureaucracy and paperwork and so many interferences with the sacred labor that many throw up their hands in discouragement and move away from the path of free enterprise.
Thus, beloved ones, you will understand: like the wolves, the fallen ones always move in packs and they understand, as the coyotes understand, that their defense is in numbers.
