Co-measurement with the Sumprime

Command of Rigden Djapo by Nicholas Roerich. 19331. "...The co-measurement, or, in other words, expediency, which reigns throughout the universe, must be manifested in everything. Everything must be accepted from the point of view of the common good or the benefit of all mankind." [Letters of Helena Roerich in 9 Volumes - 6. 026]


2. "Everything in Space is governed by co-measurement. Justice in its highest sense is commensurability." [Letters of Helena Roerich in 9 Volumes - 8. 186]


3. "First of all, co-measurement and justice. True, the second results entirely from the first. Indeed, one must forget about good-naturedness, for this goodness is not the good. Goodness is a surrogate of justice. The spiritual life is governed by co-measurement. The man who does not differentiate the small from the big, the insignificant from the great, cannot be spiritually developed." [New Era Community, 67]


4. "The criterion of the best is understood as conformity with the Highest Principle." [AUM, 23]


5. "Place four stones in the foundation of your actions: First – Reverence for the Hierarchy. Second – Consciousness of unity. Third – Consciousness of co-measurement. Fourth – Application of the principle, “By your God.” …For the third stone, select the longest vertical line in your workroom and make it the scale for measuring the Plan. Mentally measure every discontent, irritation, and fatigue on the scale of the World Plan, and in making this comparison you will find that there is not even the smallest place for illusory moods." [Leaves of Morya’s Garden II, 235]


6. "Always remember that spirituality is determined ... by the presence of synthesis and co-measurement in thinking and in actions." [Letters of Helena Roerich in 9 Volumes - 6. 074]


7. "Co-measurement is a necessary measure in everything." [Letters of Helena Roerich in 9 Volumes - 9. 147]


8. "Co-measurement is the highest wisdom ..." [Letters of Helena Roerich in 9 Volumes - 5. 081]


9. "Only a refined understanding will bring about the right co-measurement." [Agni Yoga, 386]


Watercolor Composition by Boris Abramov.10. "Blissful joy is in the acceptance of the Supermundane energy. It is available to everyone who desires to turn to it. In this will also grow co-measurement, which allows one to distinguish what is the most urgent and needed." [Supermundane, 709]


11. "…Co-measurement should suggest how much attention should be directed to the most valuable and the most important." [America by Nicholas Roerich]


12. "The ability to discriminate between the great and the small is forged in the same fire of the heart." [Fiery World I, 509]


13. "Naturally, everyone is allowed to think about himself, but where the pace is being measured in millennia, it is inappropriate to flit about like butterflies. In the final analysis, people must learn to commeasure! Thoughts about the Highest must give rise to the highest." [Heart, 207]


14. "Dear ones, develop a sense of justice and co-measurement. Both of these qualities are measured by the heart. Start thinking about the heart to remember it, and then listen to the sound of it. After all, the most powerful magnet is the heart. This magnet attracts all possibilities... There is nothing abstract in this, because all the subtle cosmic energies pass through the heart." [Letters of Helena Roerich in 9 Volumes - 1.048]


15. "One should take things in their reality, because exaggerating is as wrong as belittling. … Mark the usefulness of each messenger and do not place the load of a camel upon a donkey." [Agni Yoga, 35]


16. "From this quality [co-measurement]are born [people] discrimination and a reverence of Hierarchy. We guard co-measurement. An ancient proverb says, “An elephant’s load will crush an ass.” There have been instances when egoism hindered the understanding of co-measurement; yet there can be no justice without comparison." [Supermundane, 47]


17. "A man often puts a saddle on a cow and later is amazed when others, on horseback, outrun him. One may but smile bitterly at useless expenditures." [Fiery World II, 229]


Tangla. The Song of Shambhala by Nicholas Roerich. 194318. "A builder has to know how heavy a load the pillars of a house can bear.

A lack of co-measurement results in destruction, blasphemy, falsehood, betrayal, and every sort of ugly phenomenon. Can a structure stand in which the features of a giant are attributed to a flea? In which a soak in the hot tub is sought for more than the Lord is? In which a whirlwind is likened to a mosquito’s flight? A condition required by the Brotherhood is full co-measurement in one’s thought and expression – this is a stronghold for the truth of beauty." [Leaves of Morya’s Garden II, 208]


19. "If a sense of co-measurement is a guiding principle, the energy will always accelerate through the shortest channels." [Supermundane, 163]


20. "The idea of a travel bag has a certain meaning. And everything lies in it, but the most necessary. You can't take too much, your shoulders won't stand it… Hence – the co-measurement of the mental products of consciousness with the aim of selecting the unnecessary. Anything that doesn't match the Path is discarded. You can have a load and sit down with it by the side of the road because it is impossible to lift it. And many are sitting. The unnecessary is discarded without pity. Who needs irritability, discontent, fears and everything else? No one, least of all the walking ones. Unload consciousness. The bending of consciousness is often due to excessive load. But joy, cheerfulness, and courage, and so on can be taken in any quantity, because they have no burden and do not take up space. Traveler, review the luggage. ... One can consider the life of consciousness as a process of constant selection of the necessary from the unnecessary and the most necessary from the necessary." [Facets of Agni Yoga 1952, 320]


21. "Co-measurement is nothing but the consonance of the established cause with the desired effect. To strive for one thing and to desire one thing, but not to affirm the desired by consonant visible and invisible actions, means to destroy the undertaking at the root. ...Karma is the severe co-measurement and correspondence of past crops with present and future harvest fields. What you sow, you will reap, but in full harmony with the sowing done with your own hands. Therefore, act wisely..." [Facets of Agni Yoga 1958, 1]
