'SEE THAT YE BE NOT TROUBLED'
A lecture by Sir George Trevelyan (1906-1996)
This is what's happening, we are experiencing the Apocalypse.
We are experiencing what is written in the book of
Revelation and in Matthew 24:
"Thou shalt hear of wars and rumours of wars, famines and
earthquakes in diverse places. See that ye be not troubled."
That's an extraordinary remark! "See that ye be not troubled."
"For after the tribulation such as never was, cometh the
Son of Man upon the clouds with power and great glory."
And after that, Babylon, city of abomination, is thrown
down, the beast is chained for a thousand years, and the New
Jerusalem descends as a bride prepared for her husband.
That enormous allegory looks as if it's talking about our time.
This is exactly what is happening; and the beast is now putting
up his immense fight because he knoweth that his time is short.
~ The Field Of Battle Has Shifted Down To Earth ~
In other words, Michael and his angels have overthrown
the beast, and the field of battle has shifted down to Earth.
Who then is Michael?
The Archangel Michael is variously known as: 'the Wielder
of the Sword of Light', 'the Lord of the Cosmic Forces upon
Earth', 'the Countenance of the Christ', 'the Lord of the
Michael is a great being. He is the exalted being who is in
charge of this great epoch, this 'new age' epoch... this epoch
of the second coming of Christ. As he was the archangel in
charge at the time of the first coming of Christ, for the
first descending of Christ.
The Lord of the cosmic intelligence... not the intellect.
The intellect is male, masculine, brain-bound, sense-bound
organ, which can dissect and analyse and even make wonders
like the atomic bomb. That is the work of the intellect.
Michael is bringing the name for an impulse of intelligence.
The great ocean of intelligence which moves through ethereal
space is descending to Earth, and the point, of course, in which
it operates on Earth is through that point in nature which has
become self-conscious, in other words 'Man'. You and me.
And here is the prospect of a transformation of intelligence
within Man, and above all the filling of the heart with an impulse
which recognises just what that first poem (editor: earlier in
speech) expressed: 'We are Many and One'. And that could be
the flooding of a new power of love through the human race,
that is for transformation.
~ Operation For The Redemption Of The Planet ~
This operation for the redemption of the planet has been
launched, as far as we can see. And this is going to bring with
it stupendous change... amazing outer change... but it may be
You see, all this talk of the disasters, it may be that the very
foundations of the earthquake - like an earthquake - the very
foundations of our faith in rational, logical, intellect as the
soul arbiter for our consciousness... that may be shaken.
And it's got to be shaken in order that we shall expand
consciousness and apprehend this incredible and wonderful
oneness of the whole Universe.
The real earthquake may be that within us.
The real tidal wave that is foreseen by many could be simply
representing the flooding of the waters of Aquarius, of the
spiritual energies through our whole soul. And the volcano
could be the breaking up... the bursting up... of the energy
right up our spine and out the top of our heads. In other
words an inner volcano.
And if that happens inside us, it is going to be of only relative
interest unless it happens outside us too. Because remember
the law of correspondence: 'As within, So without'; 'As above,
So below'; 'Microcosm and Macrocosm', Man being the
microcosm, affecting the macrocosm.
This is the kind of thing that is likely to happen to us.
This is the sort of strain in which we live. You have got to
be able, somehow, to face the sort of change that is coming.
But the implication is that behind all the changes is the power
of the living Christ awakening within the human heart. And with
him, all his minions and angels, and all those human souls who
have picked up the Christ impulse, which is Love.
And you can imagine in this time of stupendous change, those
Beings of Light can only be massing in order to give support to
human souls who are going through what is undoubtedly an
extremely difficult, dangerous epoch.
~ Such A Generation In Which To Be Alive ~
I speak especially to the young ones here, there never was
such a generation in which to be alive. This is the great thought.
Whenever disasters come, you can't be killed; the body can
be killed, but you cannot be killed. Incidentally, if you were
washed away by a tidal wave it would be much the quickest way
into the New Jerusalem, and far more comfortable on the
other side. I don't mean that as a joke, it's a perfect truth.
There is nothing we need really be frightened of. The only
real anxiety is that we are failing to attune ourselves to these
powers of light; and that when the great event comes, we may
miss it through not being aware of it ... if the Lord comes riding
by and we are not aware and miss the event. That is what would
be the real tragedy. Because these events are virtually on us.
As Teilhard de Chardin says, "Where is the Christian who
is tired with the wild hope that our Earth is to be recast?"
He goes on to say that "Expectation ... active, operative
expectation of an end of the world - that is of a transformation
of the world - is the primary function of our religion".
'Expectation of a transformation of the world' ... our Earth
can be recast. This is the kind of scale in which our lives are set.
It's not relevant, if you don't like change, that you would much
prefer it wasn't so. Here, we have to wake up to the fact that
this is the world we live in, and, it is tremendous. It is full of
wonder. It is full of excitement.
It cannot be comfortable to live in an apocalyptic age, but it
is certainly thrilling. And it is incomparably worthwhile to be
alive at this juncture.
I will end with a poem, which many of you will have heard,
that expresses the thing so splendidly. This is Christopher Fry:
'A Sleep of Prisoners'. A wonderful allegory of prisoners of
war shut in an empty church in the night. They move in and out
of quarrelling and bickering, and then suddenly, one after the
other is picked up with a sort of biblical, cosmical thought.
In this strange and inspired passage, the sergeant is suddenly
taken over, and this he says ... which so expresses our own age now:
"The human heart can go the lengths of God. Dark and
cold we may be, but this is no winter now. The human misery
of centuries breaks, cracks, begins to move, the thunder
is the thunder of the floes, the thaw, the flood, the upstart
Spring. Thank God our time is now when wrong comes up to
face us everywhere, never to leave us till we take the longest
stride of soul men ever took. Affairs are now soul size. The
enterprise is exploration into God. Where are you making for?
It takes so many thousand years to wake; but will you wake,
for pity's sake?"
