Paper 17 : The Seven Supremeˆ Spiritˆ Groups
17:0.1 THE seven Supremeˆ Spiritˆ groups are the universal co-ordinating directors of the seven-segmented administration of the grand universeˆˆ. Although all are classed among the functional family of the Infinite Spiritˆˆ, the following three groups are usually classified as children of the Paradiseˆ Trinity:
17:0.2 1. The Seven Master Spiritsˆ.
17:0.3 2. The Seven Supremeˆ Executivesˆ.
17:0.4 3. The Reflective Spiritsˆ.
17:0.5 The remaining four groups are brought into being by the creative acts of the Infinite Spiritˆˆ or by his associates of creative status:
17:0.6 4. The Reflective Image Aidsˆ.
17:0.7 5. The Seven Spiritsˆ of the Circuitsˆ.
17:0.8 6. The Local Universeˆˆ Creative Spiritsˆ.
17:0.9 7. The Adjutant Mind-Spiritsˆ.
17:0.10 These seven orders are known on Uversaˆ as the seven Supremeˆ Spiritˆ groups. Their functional domain extends from the personal presence of the Seven Master Spiritsˆ on the periphery of the eternalˆ Isle, through the seven Paradiseˆ satellites of the Spiritˆ, the Havonaˆ circuitsˆ, the governments of the superuniversesˆ, and the administration and supervision of the local universesˆ, even to the lowly service of the adjutants bestowed upon the realms of evolutionaryˆ mindˆ on the worlds of time and spaceˆ.
17:0.11 The Seven Master Spiritsˆ are the co-ordinating directors of this far-flung administrative realm. In some matters pertaining to the administrative regulation of organized physical powerˆ, mindˆ energyˆ, and impersonal spiritˆ ministry, they act personally and directly, and in others they function through their multifarious associates. In all matters of an executive nature — rulings, regulations, adjustments, and administrative decisions — the Master Spiritsˆ act in the persons of the Seven Supremeˆ Executivesˆ. In the central universeˆˆ the Master Spiritsˆ may function through the Seven Spiritsˆ of the Havonaˆ Circuitsˆ; on the headquarters of the seven superuniversesˆ they reveal themselves through the channel of the Reflective Spiritsˆ and act through the persons of the Ancients of Daysˆ, with whom they are in personal communication through the Reflective Image Aidsˆ.
17:0.12 The Seven Master Spiritsˆ do not directly and personally contact universeˆ administration below the courts of the Ancients of Daysˆ. Your local universeˆˆ is administered as a part of our superuniverseˆ by the Master Spiritˆ of Orvontonˆ, but his function in relation to the native beings of Nebadonˆ is immediately discharged and personally directed by the Creative Mother Spiritˆˆ resident on Salvingtonˆ, the headquarters of your local universeˆˆ.
1. The Seven Supremeˆ Executivesˆ
17:1.1 The executive headquarters of the Master Spiritsˆ occupy the seven Paradiseˆ satellites of the Infinite Spiritˆˆ, which swing around the central Isle between the shining spheres of the Eternalˆ Sonˆ and the innermost Havonaˆ circuitˆ. These executive spheres are under the direction of the Supremeˆ Executives, a group of seven who were trinitized by the Father, Son, and Spiritˆ in accordance with the specifications of the Seven Master Spiritsˆ for beings of a type that could function as their universal representatives.
17:1.2 The Master Spiritsˆ maintain contact with the various divisions of the superuniverseˆ governments through these Supremeˆ Executives. It is they who very largely determine the basic constitutive trends of the seven superuniversesˆ. They are uniformly and divinelˆy perfectˆ, but they also possess diversity of personalityˆ. They have no presiding head; each time they meet together, they choose one of their number to preside over that joint council. Periodically they journey to Paradiseˆ to sit in council with the Seven Master Spiritsˆ.
17:1.3 The Seven Supremeˆ Executivesˆ function as the administrative co-ordinators of the grand universeˆˆ; they might be termed the board of managing directors of the post-Havonaˆ creation. They are not concerned with the internal affairs of Paradiseˆ, and they direct their limited spheres of Havonaˆ activity through the Seven Spiritsˆ of the Circuitsˆ. Otherwise there are few limits to the scope of their supervision; they engage in the direction of things physical, intellectual, and spiritˆual; they see all, hear all, feel all, even know all, that transpires in the seven superuniversesˆ and in Havonaˆ.
17:1.4 These Supremeˆ Executives do not originate policies, nor do they modify universeˆ procedures; they are concerned with the execution of the plans of divinityˆ promulgated by the Seven Master Spiritsˆ. Neither do they interfere with the rule of the Ancients of Daysˆ in the superuniversesˆ nor with the sovereignty of the Creatorˆ Sonsˆ in the local universesˆ. They are the co-ordinating executives whose function it is to carry out the combined policies of all duly constituted rulers in the grand universeˆˆ.
17:1.5 Each of the executives and the facilities of his sphere are devoted to the efficient administration of a single superuniverseˆ. Supremeˆ Executive Number One, functioning on executive sphere number one, is wholly occupied with the affairs of superuniverseˆ number one, and so on to Supremeˆ Executive Number Seven, working from the seventh Paradiseˆ satellite of the Spiritˆ and devoting his energies to the management of the seventh superuniverseˆ. The name of this seventh sphere is Orvontonˆ, for the Paradiseˆ satellites of the Spiritˆ have the same names as their related superuniverses; in fact, the superuniversesˆ were named after them.
17:1.6 On the executive sphere of the seventh superuniverseˆ the staff engaged in keeping straight the affairs of Orvontonˆ runs into numbers beyond human comprehension and embraces practically every order of celestialˆ intelligence. All superuniverseˆ services of personalityˆ dispatch (except Inspired Trinityˆ Spiritsˆ and Thought Adjusters) pass through one of these seven executive worlds on their universeˆ journeys to and from Paradiseˆ, and here are maintained the central registries for all personalities created by the Third Source and Centerˆ who function in the superuniversesˆ. The system of material, morontialˆ, and spiritˆual records on one of these executive worlds of the Spiritˆ amazes even a being of my order.
17:1.7 The immediate subordinates of the Supremeˆ Executives consist for the greater part of the trinitized sonsˆ of Paradiseˆ-Havona personalities and of the trinitized offspring of the glorifiedˆ mortalˆ graduates from the agelong training of the ascendantˆ scheme of time and spaceˆ. These trinitized sonsˆ are designated for service with the Supremeˆ Executives by the chief of the Supremeˆ Council of the Paradiseˆ Corps of the Finalityˆˆ.
17:1.8 Each Supremeˆ Executive has two advisory cabinets: The children of the Infinite Spiritˆˆ on the headquarters of each superuniverseˆ choose representatives from their ranks to serve for one millennium in the primary advisory cabinet of their Supremeˆ Executive. In all matters affecting the ascendingˆ mortalsˆ of time, there is a secondary cabinet, consisting of mortalsˆ of Paradiseˆ attainment and of the trinitized sonsˆ of glorifiedˆ mortals; this body is chosen by the perfectˆing and ascendingˆ beings who transiently dwell on the seven superuniverseˆ headquarters. All other chiefs of affairs are appointed by the Supremeˆ Executives.
17:1.9 From time to time, great conclaves take place on these Paradiseˆ satellites of the Spiritˆ. Trinitized sonsˆ assigned to these worlds, together with the ascendersˆ who have attained Paradiseˆ, assemble with the spiritˆ personalitiesˆ of the Third Source and Centerˆ in the reunions of the struggles and triumphs of the ascendantˆ career. The Supremeˆ Executives always preside over such fraternal gatherings.
17:1.10 Once in each Paradiseˆ millennium the Seven Supremeˆ Executivesˆ vacate their seats of authority and go to Paradiseˆ, where they hold their millennial conclave of universal greeting and well-wishing to the intelligent hosts of creation. This eventful occasion takes place in the immediate presence of Majestonˆ, the chief of all reflective spiritˆ groups. And they are thus able to communicate simultaneously with all their associates in the grand universeˆˆ through the unique functioning of universal reflectivityˆ.
2. Majestonˆ — Chief of Reflectivityˆ
17:2.1 The Reflective Spiritsˆ are of divineˆ Trinityˆ origin. There are fifty of these unique and somewhat mysterious beings. Seven of these extraordinary personalities were created at a time, and each such creative episode was effected by a liaison of the Paradiseˆ Trinityˆ and one of the Seven Master Spiritsˆ.
17:2.2 This momentous transaction, occurring in the dawn of time, represents the initial effort of the Supremeˆ Creatorˆˆ Personalities, represented by the Master Spiritsˆ, to function as cocreators with the Paradiseˆ Trinityˆ. This union of the creative powerˆ of the Supremeˆ Creatorsˆ with the creative potentials of the Trinityˆ is the very source of the actualˆity of the Supremeˆ Beingˆ. Therefore, when the cycle of reflective creation had run its course, when each of the Seven Master Spiritsˆ had found perfectˆ creative synchrony with the Paradiseˆ Trinityˆ, when the forty-ninth Reflective Spiritˆ had personalized, then a new and far-reaching reaction occurred in the Deityˆ Absoluteˆˆ which imparted new personalityˆ prerogatives to the Supremeˆ Beingˆ and culminated in the personalization of Majestonˆ, the reflectivityˆ chief and Paradiseˆ center of all the work of the forty-nine Reflective Spiritsˆ and their associates throughout the universeˆ of universesˆ.
17:2.3 Majestonˆ is a true person, the personal and infallible center of reflectivityˆ phenomena in all seven superuniversesˆ of time and spaceˆ. He maintains permanent Paradiseˆ headquarters near the center of all things at the rendezvous of the Seven Master Spiritsˆ. He is concerned solely with the co-ordination and maintenance of the reflectivityˆ service in the far-flung creation; he is not otherwise involved in the administration of universeˆ affairs.
17:2.4 Majestonˆ is not included in our catalogue of Paradiseˆ personalities because he is the only existing personalityˆ of divinityˆ created by the Supremeˆ Beingˆ in functional liaison with the Deityˆ Absoluteˆˆ. He is a person, but he is exclusively and apparently automatically concerned with this one phase of universeˆ economy; he does not now function in any personal capacity with relation to other (nonreflective) orders of universeˆ personalities.
17:2.5 The creation of Majestonˆ signalized the first supremeˆ creative act of the Supremeˆ Beingˆ. This will to action was volitionalˆ in the Supremeˆ Beingˆ, but the stupendous reaction of the Deityˆ Absoluteˆˆ was not foreknown. Not since the eternityˆ-appearance of Havonaˆ had the universeˆ witnessed such a tremendous factualization of such a gigantic and far-flung alignment of powerˆ and co-ordination of functional spiritˆ activities. The Deityˆ response to the creative wills of the Supremeˆ Beingˆ and his associates was vastly beyond their purposeful intent and greatly in excess of their conceptual forecasts.
17:2.6 We stand in awe of the possibility of what the future ages, wherein the Supremeˆ and the Ultimateˆ may attain new levels of divinityˆ and ascend to new domains of personalityˆ function, may witness in the realms of the deitization of still other unexpected and undreamed of beings who will possess unimagined powersˆ of enhanced universeˆ co-ordination. There would seem to be no limit to the Deityˆ Absoluteˆˆ’s potential of response to such unification of relationships between experientialˆ Deityˆ and the existentialˆ Paradiseˆ Trinityˆ.
3. The Reflective Spirits
17:3.1 The forty-nine Reflective Spiritsˆ are of Trinityˆ origin, but each of the seven creative episodes attendant upon their appearance was productive of a type of being in nature resembling the characteristics of the coancestral Master Spiritˆ. Thus they variously reflect the natures and characters of the seven possible combinations of the association of the divinityˆ characteristics of the Universal Fatherˆ, the Eternalˆ Sonˆ, and the Infinite Spiritˆˆ. For this reason it is necessary to have seven of these Reflective Spiritsˆ on the headquarters of each superuniverseˆ. One of each of the seven types is required in order to achieve the perfectˆ reflection of all phases of every possible manifestation of the three Paradiseˆ Deitiesˆ as such phenomena might occur in any part of the seven superuniversesˆ. One of each type was accordingly assigned to service in each of the superuniversesˆ. These groups of seven dissimilar Reflective Spiritsˆ maintain headquarters on the capitals of the superuniversesˆ at the reflective focus of each realm, and this is not identical with the point of spiritˆual polarity.
17:3.2 The Reflective Spiritsˆ have names, but these designations are not revealed on the worlds of spaceˆ. They pertain to the nature and character of these beings and are a part of one of the seven universal mysteries of the secret spheres of Paradiseˆ.
17:3.3 The attribute of reflectivityˆ, the phenomenon of the mindˆ levels of the Conjoint Actorˆ, the Supremeˆ Beingˆ, and the Master Spiritsˆ, is transmissible to all beings concerned in the working of this vast scheme of universal intelligence. And herein is a great mystery: Neither the Master Spiritsˆ nor the Paradiseˆ Deitiesˆ, singly or collectively, disclose these powersˆ of co-ordinate universal reflectivityˆ just as they are manifested in these forty-nine liaison personalities of Majestonˆ, and yet they are the creatorsˆ of all these marvelously endowed beings. Divineˆ heredity does sometimes disclose in the creature certain attributes which are not discernible in the Creatorˆ.
17:3.4 The personnel of the reflectivityˆ service, with the exception of Majestonˆ and the Reflective Spiritsˆ, are all the creatures of the Infinite Spiritˆˆ and his immediate associates and subordinates. The Reflective Spiritsˆ of each superuniverseˆ are the creatorsˆ of their Reflective Image Aidsˆ, their personal voices to the courts of the Ancients of Daysˆ.
17:3.5 The Reflective Spiritsˆ are not merely transmitting agents; they are retentive personalities as well. Their offspring, the seconaphimˆ, are also retentive or record personalities. Everything of true spiritˆual value is registered in duplicate, and one impression is preserved in the personal equipment of some member of one of the numerous orders of secoraphicˆ personalities belonging to the vast staff of the Reflective Spiritsˆ.
17:3.6 The formal records of the universesˆ are passed up by and through the angelˆic recorders, but the true spiritˆual records are assembled by reflectivityˆ and are preserved in the minds of suitable and appropriate personalities belonging to the family of the Infinite Spiritˆˆ. These are the live records in contrast with the formal and dead records of the universeˆ, and they are perfectlˆy preserved in the living minds of the recording personalities of the Infinite Spiritˆˆˆ.
17:3.7 The reflectivityˆ organization is also the news-gathering and the decree-disseminating mechanism of all creation. It is in constant operation in contrast with the periodic functioning of the various broadcast services.
17:3.8 Everything of import transpiring on a local universeˆˆ headquarters is inherently reflected to the capital of its superuniverseˆ. And conversely, everything of local universeˆˆ significance is reflected outward to the local universeˆˆ capitals from the headquarters of their superuniverseˆ. The reflectivityˆ service from the universesˆ of time up to the superuniversesˆ is apparently automatic or self-operating, but it is not. It is all very personal and intelligent; its precision results from perfectˆion of personalityˆ co-operation and therefore can hardly be attributed to the impersonal presence-performances of the Absolutesˆ.
17:3.9 While Thought Adjustersˆ do not participate in the operation of the universal reflectivityˆ system, we have every reason to believe that all Father fragmentsˆ are fully cognizant of these transactions and are able to avail themselves of their content.
17:3.10 During the present universeˆ age the spaceˆ range of the extra-Paradise reflectivityˆ service seems to be limited by the periphery of the seven superuniversesˆ. Otherwise, the function of this service seems to be independent of time and spaceˆ. It appears to be independent of all known subabsoluteˆ universeˆ circuitsˆ.
17:3.11 On the headquarters of each superuniverseˆ the reflective organization acts as a segregated unit; but on certain special occasions, under the direction of Majestonˆ, all seven may and do act in universal unison, as in the event of the jubilee occasioned by the settling of an entire local universeˆˆ in light and lifeˆ and at the times of the millennial greetings of the Seven Supremeˆ Executivesˆ.
4. The Reflective Image Aidsˆ
17:4.1 The forty-nine Reflective Image Aidsˆ were created by the Reflective Spiritsˆ, and there are just seven Aids on the headquarters of each superuniverseˆ. The first creative act of the seven Reflective Spiritsˆ of Uversaˆ was the production of their seven Image Aids, each Reflective Spiritˆ creating his own Aid. The Image Aids are, in certain attributes and characteristics, perfectˆ reproductions of their Reflective Mother Spirits; they are virtual duplications minus the attribute of reflectivityˆ. They are true images and constantly function as the channel of communication between the Reflective Spiritsˆ and the superuniverseˆ authorities. The Image Aids are not merely assistants; they are actualˆ representations of their respective Spiritˆ ancestors; they are images, and they are true to their name.
17:4.2 The Reflective Spiritsˆ themselves are true personalities but of such an order as to be incomprehensible to material beings. Even on a superuniverseˆ headquarters sphere they require the assistance of their Image Aids in all personal intercourse with the Ancients of Daysˆ and their associates. In contacts between the Image Aids and the Ancients of Daysˆ, sometimes one Aid functions acceptably, while on other occasions two, three, four, or even all seven are required for the full and proper presentation of the communication intrusted to their transmission. Likewise, the messages of the Image Aids are variously received by one, two, or all three Ancients of Daysˆ, as the content of the communication may require.
17:4.3 The Image Aids serve forever by the sides of their ancestral Spiritsˆ, and they have at their disposal an unbelievable host of helper seconaphimˆ. The Image Aids do not directly function in connection with the training worldsˆ of ascendingˆ mortalsˆ. They are closely associated with the intelligence service of the universal scheme of mortalˆ progression, but you will not personally come in contact with them when you sojourn in the Uversaˆ schools because these seemingly personal beings are devoid of will; they do not exercise the powerˆ of choice. They are true images, wholly reflective of the personalityˆ and mindˆ of the individual Spiritˆ ancestor. As a class, ascendingˆ mortalsˆ do not intimately contact with reflectivityˆ. Always some being of the reflective nature will be interposed between you and the actualˆ operation of the service.
5. The Seven Spiritsˆ of the Circuitsˆ
17:5.1 The Seven Spiritsˆ of the Havonaˆ Circuitsˆ are the joint impersonal representation of the Infinite Spiritˆˆ and the Seven Master Spiritsˆ to the seven circuitsˆ of the central universeˆˆ. They are the servants of the Master Spiritsˆ, whose collective offspring they are. The Master Spiritsˆ provide a distinct and diversified administrative individuality in the seven superuniversesˆ. Through these uniform Spiritsˆ of the Havonaˆ Circuitsˆ they are enabled to provide a unified, uniform, and co-ordinated spiritˆual supervision for the central universeˆˆ.
17:5.2 The Seven Spiritsˆ of the Circuitsˆ are each limited to the permeation of a single Havonaˆ circuitˆ. They are not directly concerned with the regimes of the Eternalsˆ of Daysˆ, the rulers of the individual Havonaˆ worlds. But they are in liaison with the Seven Supremeˆ Executivesˆ, and they synchronize with the central universeˆˆ presence of the Supremeˆ Beingˆ. Their work is wholly confined to Havonaˆ.
17:5.3 These Spiritsˆ of the Circuitsˆ make contact with those who sojourn in Havonaˆ through their personal offspring, the tertiary supernaphimˆ. While the Circuitˆ Spiritsˆ are coexistent with the Seven Master Spiritsˆ, their function in the creation of tertiary supernaphimˆ did not attain major importance until the first pilgrimsˆ of time arrived on the outer circuitˆ of Havonaˆ in the days of Grandfandaˆ.
17:5.4 As you advance from circuitˆ to circuitˆ in Havonaˆ, you will learn of the Spiritsˆ of the Circuitsˆ, but you will not be able to hold personal communion with them, even though you may personally enjoy, and recognize the impersonal presence of, their spiritˆual influence.
17:5.5 The Circuitˆ Spiritsˆ are related to the native inhabitants of Havonaˆ much as the Thought Adjustersˆ are related to the mortalˆ creatures inhabiting the worlds of the evolutionaryˆ universesˆ. Like the Thought Adjustersˆ, the Circuitˆ Spiritsˆ are impersonal, and they consort with the perfectˆ minds of Havonaˆ beings much as the impersonal spiritsˆ of the Universal Fatherˆ indwellˆ the finiteˆ minds of mortalˆ men. But the Spiritsˆ of the Circuitsˆ never become a permanent part of Havonaˆ personalities.
6. The Local Universeˆˆ Creative Spiritsˆ
17:6.1 Much that pertains to the nature and function of the local universeˆˆ Creative Spiritsˆ properly belongs to the narrative of their association with the Creatorˆ Sonsˆ in the organization and management of the local creations; but there are many features of the prelocal universeˆ experiences of these marvelous beings which may be narrated as a part of this discussion of the seven Supremeˆ Spiritˆ groups.
17:6.2 We are conversant with six phases of the career of a local universeˆˆ Mother Spiritˆˆ, and we speculate much concerning the probability of a seventh stage of activity. These different stages of existence are:
17:6.3 1. Initial Paradiseˆ Differentiation. When a Creatorˆ Sonˆ is personalized by the joint action of the Universal Fatherˆ and the Eternalˆ Sonˆ, simultaneously there occurs in the person of the Infinite Spiritˆˆ what is known as the “supremeˆ reaction of complement.” We do not comprehend the nature of this reaction, but we understand that it designates an inherent modification of those personalizable possibilities which are embraced within the creative potential of the Conjoint Creatorˆ. The birth of a co-ordinate Creatorˆ Sonˆ signalizes the birth within the person of the Infinite Spiritˆˆ of the potential of the future local universeˆˆ consort of this Paradiseˆ Son. We are not cognizant of this new prepersonal identification of entity, but we know that this fact finds place on the Paradiseˆ records of the career of such a Creatorˆ Sonˆ.
17:6.4 2. Preliminary Creatorship Training. During the long period of the preliminary training of a Michael Son in the organization and administration of universesˆ, his future consort undergoes further development of entity and becomes group conscious of destinyˆ. We do not know, but we suspect that such a group-conscious entity becomes spaceˆ cognizant and begins that preliminary training requisite to the acquirement of spiritˆ skill in her future work of collaboration with the complemental Michael in universeˆ creation and administration.
17:6.5 3. The Stage of Physical Creation. At the time the creatorship charge is administered to a Michael Son by the Eternalˆ Sonˆ, the Master Spiritˆ who directs the superuniverseˆ to which this new Creatorˆ Sonˆ is destined gives expression to the “prayer of identification” in the presence of the Infinite Spiritˆˆ; and for the first time, the entity of the subsequent Creative Spiritˆˆ appears as differentiated from the person of the Infinite Spiritˆˆ. And proceeding directly to the person of the petitioning Master Spiritˆ, this entity is immediately lost to our recognition, becoming apparently a part of the person of this Master Spiritˆ. The newly identified Creative Spiritˆˆ remains with the Master Spiritˆ until the moment of the departure of the Creatorˆ Sonˆ for the adventure of spaceˆ; whereupon the Master Spiritˆ commits the new Spiritˆ consort to the keeping of the Creatorˆ Sonˆ, at the same time administering to the Spiritˆ consort the charge of eternalˆ fidelity and unending loyalty. And then occurs one of the most profoundly touching episodes which ever take place on Paradiseˆ. The Universal Fatherˆ speaks in acknowledgment of the eternalˆ union of the Creatorˆ Sonˆ and the Creative Spiritˆˆ and in confirmation of the bestowalˆ of certain joint powersˆ of administration by the Master Spiritˆ of superuniverseˆ jurisdiction.
17:6.6 The Father-united Creatorˆ Sonˆ and Creative Spiritˆˆ then go forth on their adventure of universeˆ creation. And they work together in this form of association throughout the long and arduous period of the material organization of their universeˆ.
17:6.7 4. The Life-Creation Era. Upon the declaration of intention to create life by the Creatorˆ Sonˆ, there ensue on Paradiseˆ the “personalization ceremonies,” participated in by the Seven Master Spiritsˆ and personally experienced by the supervising Master Spiritˆ. This is a Paradiseˆ Deityˆ contribution to the individuality of the Spiritˆ consort of the Creatorˆ Sonˆ and becomes manifest to the universeˆ in the phenomenon of “the primary eruption” in the person of the Infinite Spiritˆˆ. Simultaneously with this phenomenon on Paradiseˆ, the heretofore impersonal Spiritˆ consort of the Creatorˆ Sonˆ becomes, to all practical intents and purposes, a bona fide person. Henceforth and forevermore, this same local universeˆˆ Mother Spiritˆˆ will be regarded as a person and will maintain personal relations with all the personalityˆ hosts of the ensuing life creation.
17:6.8 5. The Postbestowal Ages. Another and great change occurs in the never-ending career of a Creative Spiritˆˆ when the Creatorˆ Sonˆ returns to universeˆ headquarters after the completion of his seventh bestowalˆ and subsequent to his acquirement of full universeˆ sovereignty. On that occasion, before the assembled administrators of the universeˆ, the triumphant Creatorˆ Sonˆ elevates the Universeˆ Mother Spiritˆˆˆ to cosovereignty and acknowledges the Spiritˆ consort as his equal.
17:6.9 6. The Ages of Light and Lifeˆ. Upon the establishment of the era of light and lifeˆ the local universeˆˆ cosovereign enters upon the sixth phase of a Creative Spiritˆˆ’s career. But we may not portray the nature of this great experience. Such things pertain to a future stage of evolution in Nebadonˆ.
17:6.10 7. The Unrevealed Career. We know of these six phases of the career of a local universeˆˆ Mother Spiritˆˆ. It is inevitable that we should ask: Is there a seventh career? We are mindful that, when finalitersˆ attain what appears to be their final destinyˆ of mortalˆ ascensionˆ, they are of record as entering upon the career of sixth-stage spiritsˆ. We conjecture that there awaits the finalitersˆ still another and unrevealed career in universeˆ assignment. It is only to be expected that we would likewise regard the Universeˆ Mother Spiritsˆ as having ahead of them some undisclosed career which will constitute their seventh phase of personal experience in universeˆ service and loyal co-operation with the order of the Creatorˆ Michaelsˆ.
7. The Adjutant Mind-Spiritsˆ
17:7.1 These adjutant spiritsˆ are the sevenfoldˆ mindˆ bestowalˆ of a local universeˆˆ Mother Spiritˆˆ upon the living creatures of the conjoint creation of a Creatorˆ Sonˆ and such a Creative Spiritˆˆ. This bestowalˆ becomes possible at the time of the Spiritˆ’s elevation to the status of personalityˆ prerogatives. The narration of the nature and functioning of the seven adjutant mind-spiritsˆ belongs more appropriately to the story of your local universeˆˆ of Nebadonˆ.
8. Functions of the Supremeˆ Spiritsˆ
17:8.1 The seven groups of Supremeˆ Spiritsˆ constitute the nucleus of the functional family of the Third Source and Centerˆ both as the Infinite Spiritˆˆ and as the Conjoint Actorˆ. The domain of the Supremeˆ Spiritsˆ extends from the presence of the Trinityˆ on Paradiseˆ to the functioning of mindˆ of the evolutionaryˆ-mortal order on the planets of spaceˆ. Thus do they unify the descending administrative levels and co-ordinate the manifold functions of the personnel thereof. Whether it is a Reflective Spiritˆ group in liaison with the Ancients of Daysˆ, a Creative Spiritˆˆ acting in concert with a Michael Son, or the Seven Master Spiritsˆ encircuited around the Paradiseˆ Trinityˆ, the activity of the Supremeˆ Spiritsˆ is encountered everywhere in the central, super-, and local universesˆ. They function alike with the Trinityˆ personalities of the order of “Days” and with the Paradiseˆ personalities of the order of “Sons.”
17:8.2 Together with their Infinite Mother Spiritˆˆ, the Supremeˆ Spiritˆ groups are the immediate creatorsˆ of the vast creature family of the Third Source and Centerˆ. All orders of the ministering spiritsˆ spring from this association. Primary supernaphimˆ originate in the Infinite Spiritˆˆ; secondary beings of this order are created by the Master Spirits; tertiary supernaphimˆ by the Seven Spiritsˆ of the Circuitsˆ. The Reflective Spiritsˆ, collectively, are the mother-makersˆ of a marvelous order of the angelˆic hosts, the mighty seconaphimˆ of the superuniverseˆ services. A Creative Spiritˆˆ is the mother of the angelˆic orders of a local creation; such seraphicˆ ministers are original in each local universeˆˆ, though they are fashioned after the patternsˆ of the central universeˆˆ. All these creatorsˆ of ministering spiritsˆ are only indirectly assisted by the central lodgment of the Infinite Spiritˆˆ, the original and eternalˆ mother of all the angelˆic ministers.
17:8.3 The seven Supremeˆ Spiritˆ groups are the co-ordinators of the inhabited creation. The association of their directing heads, the Seven Master Spiritsˆ, appears to co-ordinate the far-flung activities of Godˆ the Sevenfold:
17:8.4 1. Collectively the Master Spiritsˆ near-equivalate to the divinityˆ level of the Trinityˆ of Paradiseˆ Deitiesˆ.
17:8.5 2. Individually they exhaust the primary associable possibilities of triune Deityˆ.
17:8.6 3. As diversified representatives of the Conjoint Actorˆ they are the repositories of that spiritˆ-mindˆ-power sovereignty of the Supremeˆ Beingˆ which he does not yet personally exercise.
17:8.7 4. Through the Reflective Spiritsˆ they synchronize the superuniverseˆ governments of the Ancients of Daysˆ with Majestonˆ, the Paradiseˆ center of universal reflectivityˆ.
17:8.8 5. In their participation in the individualization of the local universeˆˆ Divineˆ Ministers, the Master Spiritsˆ contribute to the last level of Godˆ the Sevenfoldˆˆ, the Creatorˆ Sonˆ-Creative Spiritˆ union of the local universesˆ.
17:8.9 Functional unity, inherent in the Conjoint Actorˆ, is disclosed to the evolving universesˆ in the Seven Master Spiritsˆ, his primary personalities. But in the perfected superuniversesˆ of the future this unity will undoubtedly be inseparable from the experientialˆ sovereignty of the Supremeˆ.
