by special means. Because the future epoch must erase the boundaries between the worlds. And the EgyptianMysteries have been transformed into the formula, “by human feet.”II:VI:1. One may have at one’s disposal powers not for demonstration but for progressive actions. When theessence is invisible to the crowd and arouses no attention, being veiled by the result, such essence will penetrateinto the consciousness of the people, accustoming them to the fact of achievement through human hands. Thus,actions will be achieved by human hands as a result of the highest spirit-creativeness. It behooves the spirit todwell in spirit. Let the hand manifest the earthly direction; creation by human hands does not arouse hatred.II:VI:3. Our Shield is forged by human hands. The manifested power will come through people. There is no needfor angels to deafen the ears with trumpets when human hands are found able to accept the chalice.III:V:2. Life’s achievement must be performed by human hands.III:V:17. Working hands may disguise the Messenger.
53. Verily, the Earth is to be saved by earthly hands, and the Heavenly Forces are sending the best manna; but if ungathered it is transformed into dew. How then not to rejoice when gatherers are found? When, ignoringderision, these seekers proceed, remembering Our Shield.156. It can be seen that the path of those who bear a mission is not a restful one. People think of a procession of some kind of magicians, almost as with the cap of invisibility.But the World Community is built with human hands and feet, and therein lies the beauty of the construction.
258. We will affirm the concept of “by human hands.” Why do We insist on the need for action by humanhands? It would seem easier to expand humanity's possibilities by providing access to some new subtle energies.But, once again, the heart of the matter lies in the consciousness. As long as the finer energies are not realizedthey will not be beneficial to people. In fact, it must be understood that energy not consciously realized can even be destructive. An unrealized energy, like an unbridled elemental force, can demolish all surroundings.Realization is almost mastery, and it is already co-measurement. Until humanity begins to realize the truemeaning of energy, it is essential to insist upon the principle “by human hands.”373. Agility of consciousness is a quality of the Higher World. One should understand why royal incarnationsmay alternate with those of shoemakers, without debasement. It is difficult for those on Earth to grasp this ideaof changeability of external forms, because the ascent of the spirit is little understood. Agility teaches one tounderstand things from different angles. And the formula “by human hands and feet” ceases to be an abstraction.375. Wherein lies the success of a yogi? It is not in the attraction of crowds, not in the conversion of multitudes.But, near the works of the yogi, one can observe how others emulate him. Consciously or unconsciously,voluntarily or involuntarily, people begin to do the same thing. Even his enemies, while cursing him, are drawnin his wake. It is as if a special atmosphere had gathered about the actions of the yogi. This is a true success,when neither money nor fame, but the invisible fire kindles human hearts. Desiring to emulate him, these ignitedhearts enter the yogi's atmosphere and bear away with them some drops of the creative dew. Success does notcome only from without. It is created by the collaboration of human hands with spatial thought.
33. To each one is entrusted the finding of the path to the higher sphere; but when humanity thinks that the work designated for the transmutation of the spirit and of all accumulations can proceed from without, then the lever of Cosmos will devastate the accumulation. Only by one’s own hand, only by one’s own will, only by one’s ownstriving, only by one’s own work can the spirit become a conscious co-worker of the Infinite.
