I'd agree that over time that the external world becomes increasingly refined,
becoming more responsive to our inner natures over time. This is the natural
course of things over the grand sweep of evolution. As we get to the Fifth
Round, things may be completely unrecognizable to us, were we to perceive it
at this time.
My reference was to the possibility of progressing faster than the normal
flow of things. This is what is referred to by "the Path;" it is hastened
evolution, running ahead of the normal external flow of life.

I'd agree that the best opportunity for our evolution is here on this globe.
This is where the human lifewave is. This is where the people we know are.
This is were we go to work our our karma with them. Here is where our
struggle to lift ourselves will naturally uplift and aid others as well.
The visiting of the other globes was more a reference to special circumstances,
for perhaps Chelas or Mahatmas, and is not the general rule.

With each Round, the globe moves up slightly, it improves. Our experience of
the other planes, though, comes from the time periods when the human lifewave
is on the other globes of the planetary chain. Each globe is on a different
plane (actually globes A & G are on one plane, B & F on a second, and C & E
on a third). When on a particular globe, we experience life as it is known
on the plane that the globe is on.

I'd expect external life to move at its own majestic pace, much as the planets
revolve about the sun, progressing slowly, stately, in harmony with the rhythms
of life. We as individuals, though, can outstrip the external pace of things,
and can hasten our evolution *internally*, even if we are limited to being
born into Fourth Round, Fifth Race, bodies on this globe.

There are at least three models of the globe chains that readers of 'theos-l'
subscribe to. Sometimes the topic arises, and there are interesting discussions.
