Seven billion people are not concerned on spiritual development or improvement, and willy-nilly conformed to it, they do not know or cannot change; all of them are trudging through jungles of the economy, social disorder and scale of values under the control of big corporations. Not long ago, in the 30s of the twentieth century, the solution of global problems was divided into some groups of power. After defeating France, Hitler boasted to keep the world in his pocket. Shortly thereafter, the Soviet Union, winner of the war, offered its plans and programs. The United States, with the atomic bomb, imposed to the other half its capitalistic philosophy. The great Christian Church remained with its ideas and traditions. The Jews came back to Palestine with unrealistic projects and atomic bombs handed over by the United States. Islamic peoples rose up en masse for a place in the political arena of the planet. China remained independent and began to grow. Now, in the beginning of the third millennium, and the end of Western Civilization, amid geographic and climatic commotions, without Soviet Union, with collapsed capitalism, social unrest in poor nations, the Church sunk in immorality, and China as the first world power, men, seven billion people, still as before, are unable to change or perfect themselves. Day by day, mental and social patterns are stronger and stronger, and they collide: peoples against peoples, poor persons against owners, neighbors elbowing their way through the street, a lady protesting against the crooked greengrocer, children fighting in the school, a husband abusing his wife, and a man being against himself. No persona wants or is able to change. In December, for holidays, heavy snowfalls and cold paralyze railways, airports and roads; in the southern hemisphere, mountains do not drain water, there is water emergency, heat of 40 degrees Fahrenheit, and people gather on stores to buy Christmas gifts. In Buenos Aires, the destitute raid supermarkets to get some cider and eat nougat. Men are unable to change. So, such change comes by other ways: violence, death and destruction.
The human being perfects himself through stages, and the proof within the reach of all lies on his own experience. In early childhood, he learns to walk, talk, and relate to others; in later childhood, he goes to school and learns to read, write and calculate; in puberty and adolescence, he learns métiers and simple careers, and can provide for himself and procreate; in youth, he forms a family, settles, starts his work and can achieve amazing success; in mature years, he achieves totally his potential, and constructs outstanding works that can change the course of history; and in old age, he is able to teach young people to continue the evolution of the human species.
Also Humanity moves forward through stages that the traditional philosophy calls Races, by fulfilling the Divine Plan established by the Holy Masters since the beginning. Nowadays, we start the American Race, the sixth of the Fifth Root Race, whose mission is to develop the egoencia of Being, the highest potential of the individuality, after the achievement of great works by the Christian civilization. In Humanity, changes come along with deep transformations of the Earth, so as a child changes mentally and physically. Only few men go internally ahead of indispensable transformations of the planetary habitat, –they are unknown heroes, like Santiago Bovisio, Mother Therese of Calcutta, or Mao. They sow seeds of new life that shall remain for a while in the dark expecting for the global storm to pass so as to awake and illuminate those who survive the catastrophe.
If a man wants to move forward and perfect himself, he should die, forget what he has learnt and be born again. In human evolution, civilizations should die throughout History, and so it shall be in the future. The Christian civilization, of so many results through collective organizations and scientific knowledge, is disappearing, though masses are more and more active, decadent and aggressive. These movements are signs of destruction that, on the planetary situation, shall be total by atomic power, incapacity to survive, and climatic commotions.
If someone wants to work on programs of the American Race –which are explained by Master Santiago’s Teachings– he should transmute what he possesses –his personality– into other realities of the Renunciation Law. All persons are in the position of being transformed though men still live on ancient decaying powers, and every one, individually, should decide. This is why the Teachings are expanded in the planet by Nations, within the reach of every one, with no intermediaries: the Master and the pupil. But it is a hard path, with no remuneration or rest, like every Divine Work, and some few are in the position to do so. Who are they? It is a mystery shared by that soul and the Divine Mother.
The Teachings outlined the American Race but with no dogmas or moral for those future men because a characteristic of Hidrochosa is the egoencia of being –the most perfect individuality within the reach of every one. When Moses founded the Jewish Religion, he started by the Tables of the Law, which were handed over by Jehovah to the people –a collective idea. Mahomet established by the Koran an equal behavior for the faithful and, since those fixed rules, the religion grew up. Constitutions of the States are other lay example ordering the citizens the same political and social rules.
The American Race shall have different behaviors from those practiced by other civilizations, which have been explained by the Teachings, for example, Ethics of Right and Wrong, Analogical Contradiction, Reversibility, et cetera, which cannot be applied to collective societies. They are out of the law and repressed when are practiced. Traditional religions and nations constitutionally organized have a collective form of existence and, in case of contradiction, they fight among them so as to prevail through violence. In America, the first peoples fought in defense of their worships and life styles, but they were defeated on centuries-old wars in which the winner imposed his religion and control. Christian religions have only one way of living –their own way of living, and all others are sacrificed.
The style is the man, and from his integral development, the idiosyncrasy of the future shall take form –perhaps a society with no institutions, with no control of one over others, or excluding possessions, like a garden where all plants express their floral, aromatic and medicinal features for the good of all together.
Men shall come to Nature, which have been left behind by predation and death to learn how to live. If one watches with attention a vegetal or animal picture, we shall understand that every species and every individual, and members forming it have functions of cooperation and mutual aid, and their environments are kept for centuries, millennia… forever. On large reserves that have been kept –for instance, reserves like Serengeti, Iguazú and coral reefs of Oceania– relations between parts are so intelligent and experienced that they can feed and thrive from their environment, creating a balanced harmony to overcome catastrophes of Nature. Men of Aquarius –the survivors– shall learn how to live through natural harmony, like those primitive peoples of America and Africa, before the arrival of the Christian civilization.
Theoretically, a provisional scheme of Hidrochosa’s development cannot be made beyond ideas expressed by the Teachings, because their features shall not be a code or a constitution but the individual development of every one of the survivors, and nobody knows who they shall be or how the world shall be. Here is an example that is known to us so as to illuminate this dilemma as a whole: Robinson Crusoe. He was an ordinary trader who traveled by sea to do business and live like thousands of Englishmen in those days did. But after his shipwreck, safe and sound, he stayed on a lonely island of a lot of natural resources and those that he could rescue from the ship aground. The story is unusual and starts from nothing, with certain memories and, gradually, as years pass by, Robinson becomes a new man who is able to provide for himself, by respecting Nature, his provider, and getting more and more experiences and wisdom. He learns crafts, basketwork and pottery, and to build, make fabric and bake bread, and even to produce all those things he needs to live all his available days. Robinson could never imagine a scheme of life before his shipwreck, and he would have failed in case of imagining. He learned from experiences and works tat failed. Later, as years passed by, he rescued other persons and taught them to live. The continuity has been saved. He came back to England to tell us his adventures; they are an example for delight of imaginative children and a model for this reflection.
Robinson was entirely transformed, not by doctrines or written codes but by daily reality, rains, and storms, trips within the island, fires, and his wonderful imagination allowing him to create survival elements on a new world. By analogy, the shipwreck of the civilization that at the end became helpless, a different landscape, unknown resources, unsuspected hazards, loneliness and ignorance about the future, may place us, as twentieth-century men, on a similar situation like that of Robinson so as to be prepared. The civilization, great cities of the world, medicine, universities, systems of social security, and all those things known to us are the sinking ship. Something shall remain, and it is Nature, though we do not know on what conditions, with so large differences as London in the seventeenth century and that tropical island.
Beyond premonitory Teachings of the Master –who was guided by Initiates to write down those texts– we cannot speak. Perhaps we can dream a little and be prepared for transformations we are experiencing even now.
