Given the interest in Ascension, the Event, or a planetary heart opening, I’ve reworked two series from the past into one, going over all the voices I’m aware of who talk about the New and Golden Age.
This can also serve as an introduction to new readers.
(Continued from Part 2.)
Twentieth Century (Cont’d)
Beinsa Douno: The New Epoch is Coming
In between Imperator speaking in the 1870s and Silver Birch speaking in the late 1930s and 40s came the mystic master Peter Deunov, a member of the White Brotherhood, incarnated to tell us about the “New Epoch” approaching.
After his 1897 illumination, Deunov adopted the name “Beinsa Douno,” or the “the Bringer of Good through the Word.”
On March 9, 1914, Douno proclaimed the advent of the “New Era of Aquarius.” (1) From then until his death, he lectured about cosmology, the White Brotherhood, and the coming new world.
In 1917, the man later to be known as Omraam Mikhael Aivanhov met Beinsa Douno and became his fast disciple.
But it wasn’t until 1944, shortly before his death, that he made his most pointed and detailed statement, in which he called the climactic event Ascension:
“Everything that is around you will soon collapse and disappear. Nothing will be left of this civilization nor its perversity; the entire earth will be shaken and no trace will be left of this erroneous culture that maintains men under the yoke of ignorance. Earthquakes are not only mechanical phenomena. Their goal is also to awaken the intellect and the heart of humans, so that they liberate themselves from their errors and their follies and that they understand that they are not the only ones in the universe. …
“The earth is now following an ascending movement and everyone should force themselves to harmonize with the currents of the Ascension. Those who refuse to subjugate themselves to this orientation will lose the advantage of good conditions that are offered in the future to elevate themselves. They will remain behind in evolution and must wait tens of millions of years for the coming of a new ascending wave. …
“A new culture will see the light of day, it will rest on three principal foundations: the elevation of woman, the elevation of the meek and humble, and the protection of the rights of man.
“The light, the good, and justice will triumph; it is just a question of time. The religions should be purified. Each contains a particle of the Teaching of the Masters of Light, but obscured by the incessant supply of human deviation. All the believers will have to unite and to put themselves in agreement with one principal, that of placing Love as the base of all belief, whatever it may be. Love and Fraternity that is the common base! …
“Our mother, the earth, will get rid of men that don’t accept the New Life. She will reject them like damaged fruit. They will soon not be able to reincarnate on this planet; criminals included. Only those that possess Love in them will remain. …
“It is the end of an epoch; a new order will substitute the old, an order in which Love will reign on earth.” (2)
He said “there will be a new heaven and a new earth, and a New Humanity.” (3) In that new age, everyone “will have such freedom as when God first gave it to them.” (4)
“When we enter [the New Epoch], we will be as free as those who are our Advanced Brothers: the Angels, the Archangels, the Cherubim and the Seraphim.” (5)
At this time, “the idea of brotherhood will come into realization.”(6) In those times, “the strong will be the servant of the weak.” (7)
He painted a glowing word picture of what life would be like in the New Epoch:
“The houses will not be constructed as they are now, but will be built several kilometers away from one another. The animals will be given rest from the people. To the artists, musicians and other people of the arts, the best conditions for work will exist. …
“The inner wealth, the knowledge which a person possesses, will be available to all. Now you are provided with air, light and water. One day the bread too will be given to you like the air, the water and the light. …
“People will have bread in abundance. Everyone will have a home, a garden and fruit trees. When you pass through a place that is new to you, you will be asked from all sides to come in for a visit.
“In the new Order, everything old will disappear and all things will be completely new. …
“Somebody may say, ‘When we are perfect, what will we do?’ We will then begin to live. (8)
One cannot help but compare what Douno says to what SaLuSa, Matthew Ward and Saul say. They also predict abundant and a life of ease, in which people may pursue what interests them instead of slaving for others. They also say the animals will be given rest from people.
According to Douno, all of Heaven and the cosmos is interested in what is happening today on Planet Earth. This interest is also a common theme in contemporary 2012 literature. Douno says:
“That which now is coming into the world is so magnificent that all the Angels [peek] down from Heaven in order that they may see what is coming and what is taking place on earth.
“All of Heaven – the Whole of Creation – is interested in this. The Great Day is coming into the world.” (9)
The Divine Wave of Fire
In one of his lectures, Douno uses the analogy of a fruit tree to distinguish among three groups of people alive today – the ripe, the unripe, and the bad.
“We wonder what will happen to those people who were not able to accept the Divine. The issue is clear. I come to a fruit tree and collect the ripe fruit, and for the others, I will wait. When they ripen, I will pick them as well, and the bad fruit I will use as fertilizer.” (10)
The ripe will ascend; the unripe must wait for another chance; and the spoilt will be destroyed. The unripe are those who reject Ascension, The spoilt are those who so reject the Light that their energy is returned to Creator for reuse. These types too have been discussed in current literature on Ascension. (11)
Douno describes the time of sorting as being the time during which a divine wave of fire sweeps the Earth. This may be a description of the Ascension or it may be a more general description of our coming into the photon belt.
If the former, then the sorting process may happen quickly; if the latter, it may happen slowly.
This divine wave comes from what he calls “Cosmic Space” and what we would call the Galactic Center. Some will be be able to endure it and others would not.
“A new Wave is coming from out of the Cosmic Space: the Wave of Divine Love.
“It is also called ‘the Wave of Fire’. This Wave has powerful vibrations which not every human being can endure. … Those who are ready to withstand the vibrations of this Wave and assimilate them will become luminous.” (12)
Descriptions of residents of the Fifth Dimension often stress their luminosity when seen by residents of the Third.
The divine fire will wake sleeping souls and burn away impurities.
“Yet for those who cannot bear [the vibrations], it will be a Fire which will either consume them or will cause them to pass through great suffering. This will prepare them to awaken and receive Love. …
“Everything old and impure will burn in it. After man passes through this Divine Fire, the Kingdom of God will come to Earth. I say: when the Fire of Love comes, some people will become luminous; but others will burn, will pass through repentance. (13)
“This Wave of Fire will soon pass over the world and purify it.” (14)
Perhaps we will have to wait until after First Contact to find out whether this purification process will take place gradually over the next three years or will be more sudden. The outcome however is not in doubt: the outcome will be Ascension.
“All human thoughts and desires will pass through this Fire and become purified in the most perfect way. The Great Life will enter you, and you will become transformed.
“As the smith places the iron in the fire in order to refine it, so too, the Intelligent World will pass us through the Fire so that we can be purified and tempered.” (15)
“The Wave of Fire will pass through the minds of all people. You all will pass through this Divine Fire; you will free your souls and be liberated from bondage.” (16)
It would be best for all of us to have settled our old issues before that time, he tells us. “Woe to those who have not yet managed to settle their accounts.” (17)
Not all of what Beinsa Douno says is easily translatable into the language now being used to talk about the “New Epoch.” Not all of what he says is understandable.
Beinsa Douno was a mystic, a man far removed from the ordinary mind, communing with unknown realities, which, for many of us, may await Ascension to understand.
Nonetheless, it is affirming to hear another voice from the last century predicting events that we today see unfolding before our eyes.
