You are the first person I ever remember agreeing with my thought regarding
the races. I realize the paper is not too clear, because there are many
sides to the concept that were not discussed. Thank you for speaking out
and being the first to add validity to my thinking. I fear others just
listen politely and then choose to ignore the idea entirely.
I would like to comment on your passage below:

In my mind, I could account for this differently. As dearly as I love the
thought of the Masters and value their presence in our life on earth today,
I do not think it possible that our evolutions continue alongside each
other infinitely. If they are present during man's ascension and at key
points in the creation of our human world (a mystery), then it is possible
that some day in the future (at the end of the seventh race) we will have
to depart from the masters. I only recently have considered this thought
and don't like it very much, but the only thing better than having their
assistance and life energies around is the thought of joining with the
"sun," the solar logos, Ishvara, and having a more direct contact with the
"life" of our solar system. I sense that even during the fourth race this
direct contact with the solar logos is very strong, due to the fact that
there is a constant presence of a dual nature in man's ascent and descent -
how would a duality be present during the "most material" of the races? The
only conclusion I have is that man is both the "good and the bad," but that
he is so under the direction of the solar logos and as a manifestation of
the life of the solar logos.
Mary Lutyens did

I don't know how to consider the Bodhisattva, except that in the creation
of the world, the Buddha projects forth an essence that is then transformed
into a living Bodhisattva and I'd have to look for a quote on this matter.
Even the attempt at union with the spirit of our earth is a noble endeavor.
In my "private consideration" of I AM Temple teachings, I ponder whether
the essence they call Victory is not the kumara of the Earth. It is
considered that this Victory is a resident of Venus. I think it would be
very joyful to unite with the energy of earth in such a way that we felt we
were blessing a planetary manifestation of another planet. The kumara here
which would be responsible for directing earth's energy to other planets in
a serial fashion to the way seven sacred planets affect us. Our earth is
certainly, in return, a sacred planet to seven periods of the evolutions of
the other planets.
When reading the whole

>irrelevant enough not to mention it."
Is it possible to consider the Bodhisattva to be our earth or our sun in
