Q: Can you give examples of causal teachers or entities influencing humanity in unique ways? Are artistic or cultural movements like impressionism in art or the Renaissance period within our history influenced by planal guides?
A: The causal guides or teachers “influence” only their students. That their students then have an impact upon the reality in which they dwell is their choice.
Those that influenced or impacted greatly upon the society and cultures during what you term the Renaissance of Europe were those of a 4th and 5th cycle nature. That they had causal guides is true for some, but not all of influence were students of anything more than human nature and the human condition.
That one called Michelangelo was himself a 4th cycle scholar, 5th level, unable to stay with any one idea for longer than a “minute”. He tried to manifest as many as ideas as he could. That he was student of anyone anything else is not true. He understood much and simply tried to express it.
Many were that way. For the predominance of 4th and 5th cycles, especially artisans and scholars, in positions wherein they could create a change was the driving force behind this seemingly out-of-place band of time.
For the predominance of populace were 2nd and 3rd cycle, and it is this that is reflected in the politics and societies of the time. That the culture was expansive enough to allow most of those with 4th and 5th cycle sensibilities to express themselves was true, but also was it true that intrigue, back-stabbing, and struggles for power and wealth and position were foremost.
We see the church as extremely forceful in that time; using their position to influence those in the ruling classes and the poorer classes. Also was there much skullduggery within the church in the transitionings of power and wealth. For the church more than any other was the great political arena of the time.
The painters and sculptors were primarily 3rd and 4th cycle artisans. The musicians, 4th and 5th. That this (term ‘musicians’) also includes thespians and troubadours is true.
Those speaking with or seeking guidance outside of the church or other “approved” methods, risked much, for the power bases were still held by those of 2nd and 3rd cycle, and the need for conformity was great. It was only in terms of “art” that one was allowed to be “different”. This was permitted as they were creative and so something apart anyway; but those suspected of any type of activity not sanctioned by the church risked punishment befitting those accused of witchcraft or conspiracy with the devil.
We see Nostradamus as a great manipulator of energies and one who often sought advice from guides. The artist Raphael was very “close” with his causal guide, as was the musician Wilhelm Furtwangler. Mozart, although driven, was very in touch with essence, but his chief feature of self-destruction was stronger than his love of life. This period of time lasted until those within the power structure became too frightened, so required all to become more conforming to the “rules”.
