We’re excited to announce that this is the first ever podcast produced by the New Zealand Branch of The Aetherius Society!

It’s also the first in a series of shows about the amazing book called The Nine Freedoms. This book contains a series of transmissions delivered by a Cosmic Intelligence, the great Mars Sector 6, who spoke through Dr King, the Founder of The Aetherius Society. Dr King went into a positive samadhic yogic trance and Mars Sector 6 spoke through him using his voicebox. These transmissions were given on 9 successive Sundays in 1961, in London, England.

The Nine Freedoms are:

  1. Bravery
  2. Love
  3. Service
  4. Enlightenment
  5. Cosmic Consciousness
  6. Ascension
  7. Interplanetary Existence
  8. Saturnian Existence
  9. Solar Existence

The First Freedom will be Bravery

So our first podcast focuses on the First Freedom, Bravery. Bravery is a word we all understand and at first may seem an unusual concept to begin a spiritual text with. But in order to evolve spiritually, bravery is essential because to do so we have to leave the well trodden path of orthodoxy.

These days the media has such a hold over us, telling us what is important and what is not, we’re conditioned to live in a certain way, to strive for more money, a bigger house, greater fame and fortune. So to break away from this conditioning and to search for something deeper, something more lasting, is to go against the norm and this requires a certain kind of bravery.

Not only this, the further along our spiritual path we progress the more we encounter situations that test our bravery to stick to our chosen path.

Our podcast delves deeper into this concept of  ‘Bravery’. And to give you a flavour of what this great text is like, here are the first couple of paragraphs of the First Freedom – these are the words of the Cosmic Master, Mars Sector 6:

“The First Freedom will be—BRAVERY.

“BRAVERY is essential in all things, for while the aspirant allows the negative accumulation of fear to discolour his outlook, he cannot ever truly aspire to Freedom.

“Freedom from fear can be brought into active manifestation within all men providing they have knowledge. Knowledge of the right kind dispels fear, whether the manifestation of this fear be petty or more potent.

“It is not necessary for man upon Terra to fear man upon Terra, for if you obey the Unchangeable Laws, indeed by your obedience do you burn fear in the bright light of dawning Enlightenment.”
