The life that God has given to us is a life that is intended to be used by our soul to attain reunion with the Inner Self. All else is extraneous and subject to that one goal. If we don’t make it in this life, we come again. The soul puts on a new set of “coats of skins,” or a new forcefield, and returns once again to the scenes of earth. This is why earth is so familiar to us; it’s because we’ve been evolving here for thousands and thousands of years

Life, then, is the path of initiation. Jesus, in his great love for the people of earth, came to show us how we could follow the path of initiation and in one concluding lifetime return to the heart of God as he did in the ritual of the ascension.

When we see the life of Jesus as a life marking the stations of our own individual initiation, we look at the birth of Christ as the sign of the birth of our own Christ consciousness—the moment when we determine to manifest the Father-Mother God and to bring forth that Christ light. We have the decision of Jesus to be about his Father’s business. We have his decision to discourse with the doctors in the temple, to expound upon the Law. And then between the ages of twelve and thirty, he is in the East preparing for the final three years of his Galilean mission.

One of his first initiations in these three years is the ritual of baptism, an important initiation symbolizing the cleansing and consecration of the soul to the will of God. We have his transfiguration before the disciples. We see his crucifixion, his resurrection. And between the transfiguration and the crucifixion, he works many miracles, so-called, as demonstrations of the science that we must one day prove.

The fact of the matter is that we must affirm that we are being transfigured every day, that we are experiencing the resurrection every day, that we are ascending. Even by a tiny, tiny increment each day we are drawing closer and closer to that energy forcefield that is the white-fire core of the atom of Self.

Continuing in order with the “Heart, Head and Hand Decrees,” we find that with each successive mantra we draw forth a greater degree of light. As we become more sensitive, we actually feel this light building within our own bodies. We can begin to feel the burning in the heart, which the disciples felt on the road to Emmaus when they were near the master but did not recognize him.

The burning in the heart indicates the expansion of the threefold flame. It is the sacred fire actually consuming the misqualified energies of fear and hatred and impure motive that often surround the heart.

The one pursuing the initiation of the transfiguration, then, gives the following mantra from the “Heart, Head and Hand Decrees:”

I AM changing all my garments,
Old ones for the bright new day;
With the sun of understanding
I AM shining all the way.

I AM light within, without;I AM light is all about.
Fill me, free me, glorify me!
Seal me, heal me, purify me!
Until transfigured they describe me:
I AM shining like the Son,
I AM shining like the sun!

There is a tremendous joy in this mantra of the transfiguration because it represents an influx of light whereby the very cells of our bodies begin to be filled with light and to be flushed of physical as well as mental and emotional toxins.

The joy of giving these mantras is the joy of becoming God.

What is the meaning of the term right living?

Right living is one of the requirements of the Eightfold Path of the Buddha, and right living means being obedient to the Inner Self. For thousands of years people have rebelled against the laws of God because they have felt that they were imposed from without as a yoke and as a burden. This rebellion against what seems to be outside of oneself is really the ultimate folly of rebelling against one’s own being, one’s own True Self.

Moses received the Ten Commandments. Jesus gave us a new commandment. We have received the code of living from all of the great gurus. Confucius’ teaching was a very practical wisdom for everyday life.

This is really what the great masters have come to show us—how to live on earth and yet to remain in God. And it comes down to a few simple precepts: Love the LORD thy God with all thy heart and all thy soul and all thy mind, and love thy neighbor as thyself.

So right living means being obedient to the highest principles of the religion we were brought up in. Whether we are followers of Muhammad or Zarathustra or Confucius, Lao Tzu or Mother Mary, we must remember that the basic precepts of honesty and right living are a proper and necessary matrix for the science of the spoken Word, this science of alchemy that comes with the Holy Spirit.

Is it true, then, that the Science of the Spoken Word is in no way a substitute for moral rectitude?

Yes. In fact, if the Science of the Spoken Word is used without the correction of our way of life, it will not be effective because the Law will not work for those who are out of alignment with that Law. If we steal, if we kill, if we partake of substances that we ought not to partake of, we are depriving ourselves of the benefits of the pure energy of the Word.

Is the Science of the Spoken Word useful in taking care of all the little habits and negative traits that plague most of us?

That’s a very interesting question. The Ascended Master Lord Maitreya has answered that question in his teachings on the overcoming of fear through decrees. He reminds us that Paul expressed the dilemma of these subconscious motivations and momentums when he said, “The good that I would, I do not. But the evil which I would not, that I do.”

Maitreya asks: What can the modern-day disciple do to protect himself from evil intent and evil action that he finds manifesting in himself and in the world at large? And he answers the question by talking about the discipline of the controlled use of energy through the Science of the Spoken Word.

Maitreya compares the momentum of habit to a coil of an electromagnet wound around its core. The number of times that the coil is wound around the core determines the power of the habit and its momentum. In other words, the number of times that the habit is engaged in determines its strength.

We can break that momentum through the use of the Science of the Spoken Word. As we give the mantras, we break the power of habit. Maitreya tells us that instead of unwinding the coil turn by turn, we can break right through the entire forcefield of that coil and break the habit by the power of God through the Science of the Spoken Word.

What exactly is meant by the term initiation?

Initiation is the testing of the soul. It is God’s way of determining how we will use the gift of free will. Temptation comes before us; we have to make a decision to walk the path of honor or to walk the path of the compromise of truth. As soon as we demonstrate that we are just stewards of the Law and of the abundance of God, God gives us more. He makes us caretakers of others and of larger fields of energy, more abundance, more supply, more responsibility on earth.

Every day we are receiving initiations and every day we are sending a message to our I AM Presence as to whether or not we are worthy to be counted as joint heirs of the Christ consciousness.

Are we worthy to inherit this Christ mind, this mind of the Buddha, this mind of Confucius?

It is ours for the overcoming, but we have to pay a price, and that price is to follow the inner law and to be obedient to the inner voice.

So one progresses on the Path by demonstrating one’s faithfulness and one’s courage?

In the parable of the talents, Jesus taught, “If thou wilt be faithful over a few things, I will make thee ruler over many.” The path of initiation is the only way that God has of determining whether we are ready for an increase of light, of the Holy Spirit, of graces and of the inner keys.

There are inner keys that are transferred to the individual by the ascended masters and by his own Inner Self as he passes his tests. And these keys are the very keys that we would have—the keys to the mastery of the science of Matter as well as the science of Spirit.

What are some of these keys?

The multiplication of the loaves and fishes. We have talked about a mantra that could be used to attain the abundance of God. But there are further keys behind that mantra from which that mantra comes. These are not lawful to reveal because they are the keys that are imparted to the individual by the master himself.

There is an old saying that goes, “When the pupil is ready, the teacher appears.” When we show that we are ready because we have been faithful over a few things, we have been willing to discipline our lives and our energies, then we find that the ascended masters approach us.

And as they come—either through a book, through a person, through a teaching, through our hearing about the Science of the Spoken Word—we begin to pursue the master. We begin to say, “I am going to do what that master says because I want to be like him.” So we begin demonstrating the master’s techniques and we find that in our own heart of hearts God speaks to us and gives us the key of life.

Is everybody being initiated?

Everyone is being initiated. Earth is a schoolroom. The moment you get out of bed in the morning your initiation begins and it doesn’t stop till you retire at night!

Everybody is making the decision hour by hour to be or not to be in Reality, in Truth, in God.

Does that mean that everybody is on the Path?

“The Path” means the path of the ascension. It is the goal of life for everyone to be on that path. But there are a number of tests and a number of challenges that you must meet before you can say you are actually on the path of the over comers who are tied to the ascended masters.

Those who are on that path are daily pursuing the balancing of their karma and the fulfilling of their dharma—the duty to be oneself, to fulfill one’s reason for being.

Cosmic Christ Illumination

27 Mar

 

Peace be unto you, my beloved. For my heart is with you this day, and my Spirit and my Presence.

I AM Jesus the Christ. I come in the fullness of resurrection’s flame that I might transfer to the aura of each one, so carefully prepared [by yourselves] in these days, that momentum of the resurrection that can give all the atoms a spin, the cosmic atoms a [cosmic] spin so that you may win and win your Victory in this life. May that spinning and that throwing off [of humanly misqualified substance of karma], beloved, create evermore the concentration of the sacred fire in each sun center that does comprise the vast Body of God which you are.

May you bask in this flame for the duration of my message and be seated in the joy not only of my resurrection but of your own, beloved. For you are also resurrected this day and this is my Easter message!  For the resurrection of your Real Self, of who you really are, can be the most transforming experience of your life.

You have lived so long with the adoptive self, the adaptive self, the accommodating self, the not-self, and the dweller-on-the-threshold, that sometimes what you think is your very best self is but a conglomerate of all of these and a habit.  But when the habit is consumed by the living fires of God and you step forth from that tomb and see who you are, blessed ones, you will never again argue in defense of that old posture, that old reason, that old ego.

Now then, it is springtime. Step forth into newness of life! I have counseled many of my disciples in this Community to become your Real Self and so I do it again. For it is a step-by-step,  a day-by-day process and sometimes it is necessary to take out the old photograph album and to see just how far you have removed yourself from those other years and lesser spheres of manifestation.

I impart to you, then, the love of our Oneness. For, beloved, I tell you, whether you have identified with me or not in this life you have gravitated toward this activity of service to set the record straight, to resolve to enter fully and finally into the heart-to-heart relationship [with myself], precisely the one that I shared with John.

Beloved hearts, know, then, that this Christ that I AM and that I declare–for I AM the Son of God–is your Christ, is your Sonship. [And] though [this Sonship] may be at times more evident where I AM, whether when I was upon earth [two thousand years ago] or in the ascended octaves [as I AM] today, yet, beloved, this [Christ of my and your Sonship] is the Rock of your Divine Reality. Cling to it as though all the waves of the roaring seas of hell should beat against it and you should hold on to that rock for life!  [Seeking and finding the] true Reality of oneself is like mining the gold of the Divine Image until one comes to the golden image of the golden-age man and woman.

I come for restoration!  I come for re-storation, beloved!  Let there be a new story!  Let the sacred fire consume the old coil!  Be done with it!  Have done with it!

Blessed heart, there is a new spiral and a new man and a new woman and it is the glory of the living Christ within you. This joy I bring you, this understanding I tell you. For newness of life and resurrection is the only way to survive in a dead and dying world, is the only way to come apart to infuse new life into those who are the sick–the maimed, the halt, the blind. By the resurrection flame and through prayer and fasting know that that Divine Reality can come forth.

I will be God in manifestation!  I will be God in manifestation!

So help me, God!

Ye Are The Light of The World

22 Mar

O light that reigns in the hearts of men because he has come into the world, we salute thee in the spirit of the resurrection and in the very person of the Sacred Heart of Jesus Christ. Angels of the throne of glory, descend in concentric rings of sacred fire. As the sacred fire lily of our hearts bursts forth in the light of the Mother and the Son, we gather to proclaim him King of kings and Lord of lords, victor over hell and death, our supreme master of life.

O Father in heaven, in his name, let the resurrection flame reign in every heart in this hour. In the name of the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit, in the name of the Mother, Amen.

Next to the incarnation of the Savior, the most glorious of all events is the celebration of his resurrection. When we come into the world vowing to “do thy will, O God,” as he did, we have no assurance that we will walk the path of initiation to the hour of our own individual resurrection—save the assurance and the promise of God that with him all things are possible1 and, by the endowment of the threefold flame of life, we can fulfill the original promise. And so when we behold our Master fulfill that promise, we have the comfort and the peace that we may follow in his footsteps.

At this very moment of the prophecy of the agony and the ecstasy, we find the disciples nearest Jesus questioning him. And their first questions are directed toward their own fate, their own chelaship.

James and John, the sons of Zebedee, come unto him, saying, Master, we would that thou shouldest do for us whatsoever we shall desire.

And he said unto them, What would ye that I should do for you?

They said unto him, Grant unto us that we may sit, one on thy right hand, and the other on thy left hand, in thy glory.4

They knew of the positioning of the cherubim upon the ark of the covenant. They knew that the guarding of the flame was a sanctified office of the two highest initiates of the Master. They wanted to secure their position in heaven before he should remove himself from their sight.

But Jesus said unto them, Ye know not what ye ask: can ye drink of the cup that I drink of? and be baptized with the baptism that I am baptized with?

And they said unto him, We can.

Thus it has ever been that as the disciples look upon the mastery of their Lord, they do not perceive the elements of that mastery, the great light of that attainment. Nor do they understand the thousands upon thousands of years of the ingredients of the glory that so easily flowed from his garment, the light that transfigured him before their very eyes. They are so certain that they simply say, “We can.”

Perhaps it is a false sense of assurance. Perhaps it is a profound inner understanding of what he has already taught them. We cannot totally judge why they say what they say. We cannot see whether it is selfishness or the enlightenment of the Higher Self that understands that in following the Master one must ask for his mantle in order to receive it. One must ask for his initiations in order to receive them. Elisha asked his Guru for his mantle when he ascended. Thus we come to understand that even when we are so close to the ascended ones, without the prayer and the asking there cannot be the blessed conferment of the resurrection flame.

Now therefore, O living sacred fire, in the name of thy Son Jesus Christ, in the name of the Cosmic Christ, whose presence he has brought to our hearts, in the name of the great quickening fire and the opening of the door to our own Christ Self, we ask this day that the children of God upon earth and the sons and daughters of God might be drawn in to the great congruency of thy throne.

Let thy Three-in-One, O God, descend now! Let it be for the healing of hearts, the purifying of hearts, the opening of the path of initiation according to thy light.

O beloved Jesus, let us now understand the deeper mysteries of drinking thy full cup and remaining steadfast to thy fiery essence, infused thereby within our temple—infused because thou art the fullness unto us forevermore of the transfiguration, the crucifixion, the resurrection and the ascension. AMEN

Love God in One Another

19 Mar

The Holy Spirit descending into your temple cooks out fear. Therefore, when God releases that Holy Spirit through his avatars, we are immediately converted to the light. A transfer of intense love has instantaneously melted our fear and we come to a experience of love.

I began by talking about having a reservoir of love in our heart to convey to people who need healing. Well, that is what the Ascended Masters have, and that is why, when you really make contact with them, you experience conversion. A portion of their love comes into your life and you are reborn. You experience a rebirth, which is another definition of conversion. However, you have to have something in you that can magnetize enough love to have a conversion experience. Even if there are layers and layers and layers of human infamy over it, the core of your being has to have the raw material–a God flame and some previous devotion to God’s love–to polarize with the love of an ascended being.

You also need to have a reservoir of love in your heart so that by magnetizing God’s love, you can be used as an instrument to transfer it to those who are in need of conversion, those who may not in themselves have enough of what is required to have a direct contact with an Ascended Master.

Therefore, it becomes the goal of your path to give of your heart’s love to someone who needs more love to experience conversion. You do this because your love for the God whom you know is so intense that it is transferred to the person before you who seems not to know God.

The Christ Is God’s Love Sent into the World

I will read verse 9. “In this was manifested the love of God toward us, because that God sent his only begotten Son into the world that we might live through him.” This is the perfect love of God.

He gave us in the beginning a threefold flame. We left off adoring it. It was reduced in size until we no longer knew the Son of God in our temple through that threefold flame. Thus the love of God was manifest in that he sent his only begotten Son, the Christ, the Universal Christ, into the temple of Jesus Christ so that we might live through that Christ.

This is also the love of Jesus Christ, because long before he ever took incarnation, he determined to pour out so much love to the Father that the Father would endow him with the fullness of that only begotten Son.

Verse 10: “Herein is love, not that we loved God, but that he loved us, and sent his Son to be the propitiation for our sins.” We are never the originators of love. God first loved us and with his love we have done what we will. The exercise of our free will has determined how we have spent this love, which manifests as the energy of the Holy Spirit.

God’s Love Is the Propitiation for Our Sin

God’s love is the energy we misqualify, and therefore fear is misqualified love. I repeat, fear is misqualified love. The flame within our hearts, the presence of the Guru Jesus Christ and the Universal Christ as your Christ Self, is God’s love sent into the world to be the propitiation for our sin.

How is it the propitiation for our sin? By the very process I explained, by the great mystery of love burning with an alchemical heat to transform the elements of the etheric, mental, emotional and physical bodies within the cells. That is how the Son of God who comes into your temple is the propitiation for your sin.

He adds unto your temple his momentum of the sacred fire of love and takes upon himself your fears, your sins, which you have not been able to transmute because you have not been able to wax hot in your fervor for Almighty God. That is why God has denounced those who are lukewarm, because the lukewarm can’t boil the pot. They cannot change or have the alchemy of the Holy Ghost.

The more psychological disturbances people have, the more they inflict all kinds of things upon their physical bodies. People do atrocious things to their bodies. We know therefore that there is a force of anti-body, and since the body is the Mother, it is an anti-Mother force that has us do things that destroy the wholeness and the figure-eight flow within our beings.

In fact, it’s the anti-Mother momentum that causes us to sin, to make karma and to fear, to the extent that we function only at a certain percentage of capacity. The cells and the various organs are working only at a certain capacity and we have to look squarely at the conditions whereby we allow this to continue.

This is the sword of truth, and it is the all-seeing eye of the fifth ray that puts a spotlight on our subconscious momentums and reveals to each one those elements of self-hatred that are really the hatred of the Great God Self. Self-doubt and fear are really the doubt and fear of the Great God Self.

These things have shortened the lifespan of the evolutions of which we are a part, have caused aging, disease, death, and so forth. So we must love one another and we must see to it that elements within the desire body and the mental body are not inflicted upon the physical body. Then we go out into other bodies, our brothers and our sisters, and we see to it that not by the spoken word, not by an unkind remark or something vicious or sarcastic do we inflict upon another body the hatred contained within ourselves for a part of ourselves.

As we prepare to surrender these fears into the flame, we need to be mindful of what we are putting into the flame and how the flame will work. A prayer full of generalities will not work because you will have failed to take responsibility for your own substance. Some people cannot admit that they are wrong now or have ever been wrong, so when they confess, they just say, “O God, forgive me for all my sins.” That is an irresponsible confession, as it does not contain enlightenment.

God cannot vaguely come down with a surgeon’s knife and remove a vague tumor in your astral body. Therefore the most important sins to confess are the individual sins that you cannot talk to anybody about because they are so terrible. Of course, they are not that terrible, but the devil has you convinced that they are.

If you do not talk to anybody about them, including God, you will never get over the sense of guilt, for when you can’t get something out of your system, that record in your electronic belt becomes an anti-sun. Then more fear, more guilt begins to revolve around it, as the sinister force rubs it in through the demons and discarnates who plague you in the night and tell you over and over again what a miserable sinner you are. We offer a prayer.

In the name of the beloved Mighty I AM Presence of all life, in the name of the beloved Holy Christ Self, we come to the altar of confession, O God. In the name of the living Savior Jesus Christ, we come to confess our sins by our love of God, who first loved us and established within our temple the threefold flame of life upon the altar of being, who sent forth the beloved Christ Self to be the mediator and the propitiation for our human karma.

We bow before thy living flame. We invoke fearlessness flame. Blaze forth within this temple and in every cell, beloved Ray-O-Light. Legions of fearlessness flame, enter every living cell of this temple. Bind now those centers of fear. Blaze forth the light of God that never fails.

By the authority of Christ within me, I say, bind fear. Bind its cause and core. Bind the moment of its inception in my life. Cast out death. Cast out strife. Cast out doubt and fear. Mighty I AM Presence, send forth thy ray of love, for this my command made in the name of my own Christ Self is made in perfect love for thee.

I would prepare thy temple, O living Word. I call forth the whirling spiral of the Central Sun of love from the very heart of the secret love star. I call for the mighty action of Surya and Cuzco. I stand upon this very forcefield at the altar of my confession. I ask for the light of God that never fails to descend now into my temple. Purge now every vortex of fear. I surrender it, O God. Let thy living flame of love pour through me as the mighty River of Life.

Angelic hosts of the Lord, come forth. Mighty secret love star, I call forth the whirlwind action of the sacred fire, the whirling Central Sun of Almighty God. I call for the whirling action of the Sun behind the sun of my own heart flame, and of every living cell within my temple.

Lo, I AM the action of the sacred fire! Lo, I AM the presence of the Lord Christ! Lo, I AM the soul that rises to be one with this Christ Self even as I bow before the altar and place upon this altar of sacred fire all misqualified energy!

In the name of the living Word, I call forth the light of God that never fails. I confess each act of fear and sin, known or unknown. I take responsibility for each and every act, thought, word and feeling that has ever passed through my chakras. I take full responsibility for them and I denounce the misuse of the living Word. I cast it into the sacred fire. I give unto the Lord now this substance and by the very fervor of love of my heart, lo, I make contact. Lo, I arc the flame of my fire unto God, even as the flame of God’s fire has arced unto me.

Lo, I am the completion now of this mighty flow of sacred fire! Lo, I am the light of God that never fails. I come before the throne of Almighty God. I bow before the throne of grace. I understand, O God, that without love, there is no forgiveness or forgetting of sin. Therefore, O God, I bring to the altar the gift of love, my perfect love, which is thy perfect love for every part of thee, for brother and sister, for every part of life everywhere.

The Power of Right Thought

5 Mar

 

The power of right thought to guide the lives of men is often overlooked; for the preeminence that men give to ego-centered emotions when making decisions that will affect their entire lives leads them into wrong thought patterns and negative spirals that can produce only more ego-centered emotions.

“He that is slow to anger is better than the mighty; and he that ruleth his spirit than he that taketh a city.”

Emotional control is the need of the decade. This need must be recognized by those who would go forth as representatives of the World Teachers (Jesus and Kuthumi). You who would set the example for the age must also bear in mind that you cannot mold the thoughts of others by argument, nor will a display of the ego generate respect in those you would lead. Therefore, your only alternative is to follow the commandment of the Lord, to “Let your light so shine before men, that they may see your good works, and glorify your Father which is in heaven.” Teaching by example is the way of those who have attained self-mastery.

It Is Not Necessary to Classify Individuals

How well we know that the misinterpretation of an individual’s thoughts and motives often creates a false picture of his character. Therefore, blessed hearts, the Brotherhood explains that it is not necessary to classify individuals. But, if after reading our admonishment you still feel compelled to do so, will you not “reclassify” them if your first opinion should be wrong? Why be hasty or feel the need to shove everyone you meet conveniently into a niche of your own creation?

Practice the Presence of God in your own life, we say, invoke the Spirit of his discernment in all matters, and you will more readily spread the balm of peace and beauty among your peers.

How easy it is for men and women to find fault with one another! Yet, how true it is that each such episode of faultfinding, when it is falsely based in any respect, brings forth a karmic recompense which may well create in the lives of the faultfinders those very faults that they so easily condemned in others. What, then, is the value of holding the immaculate concept for those whose lives are so impurely lived? Is it not in order to invoke the magnetization of benign energies throughout the universe?

And, conversely, does not the sordid thought about another sully also the garments of the mind of the one engaged in the practice?

How quickly the vibrations of a building, or of a consciousness, are lowered as men and women continually dwell on the errors and shortcomings of others. Hierarchy does not say that there is anything wrong with the statement, “By their fruits you shall know them”; but in heaven’s name, blessed ones, to know what a man is at a given moment should not forever defraud him of the mighty potential of improving his lot.

While the lives of men are full of shame, ending in blame toward one another, we would make them to be full of hope, that the dawn of self-improvement might appear daily to each human life. Why should we limit men when the balm of forgiveness can bring about a spiritual equity in the entire evolution of a planet? What applies to men individually applies to organizations, to nations, and to the split infinitives of purpose.

The Defense of the Matter Cube in the Mother Light of the Ascension

23 Feb

Thus the Mother flame brings all to the surface that you may choose this day whom you will serve.  For the light cannot give you your victory until you stand, face, and conquer every jot and tittle of the law of your own being.

Where you have made the law of sin, which is the transgression of the law of God, the law of your life experience, the rising, pulsating Mother flame exposes that law of sin and allows you to repent and to experience that remission of sins which takes place within your very own temple when the law of sin and the consequences of sin—the responsibilities for the transgression of the law of life—are surrendered into the all-consuming white fire, sacred fire, Mother flame.

The Mother flame and the ascension flame are one. This pure white light that issues from the Source is the crystal clear river of water of life.   And the fire flowing through crystal waters is the all-purifying and all-knowing ascension flame.

Guru Ma is the name given and the mantle worn by the teacher who teaches the path of Self-realization through the Mother flame—devotion to purity of consciousness manifest in the Word and Work of the Lord and to the raising up of the Mother light (the Kundalini) in the ascension coil. The path of the Mother leads to soul liberation through the ritual of the ascension taught and demonstrated for thousands of years by the avatars of East and West.

The one called Guru Ma is a devotee of God who is devoted to his manifes­tation of the Mother principle of Life. The Guru Ma teaches his/her chelas the way of the Christ and the Buddha who were both devotees of the Mother flame. Through the path of devotion to Mother and the Mother flame, one embodies more and more of the divine personality of the Mother in her role as counterpart to the Trinity.

As the active personality of the Father, the Mother is called Shakti. She personifies his mind and energy, abundance and truth as the active, energizing love of himself throughout the manifest creation. Without God as Mother, the material universe would still be “without form, and void” and darkness would still be “upon the face of the deep.”

The Mother light which lights up the galaxies is actually the Father’s light in feminine form. Mother is the negative polarity of the Godhead—the ‘other side’ of Father who holds the positive ‘Spirit’ polarity of the Mother manifestation.

Adoration of the Mother establishes the heart tie of the devotee to the God who is nearest and dearest because She is Him in Matter. By establishing that tie, the devotee links himself to the Father through the Mother. In reality it is the Father’s desire that we know him first through the Mother—that we receive her love and creative disciplines, that we are prepared for our relationship with him as the Trinity through her path that leads Home.

The teachings of all true gurus begin with Mother. They are guru because they love Mother. The highest Guru to a planetary evolution, the “God of the Earth,” is the Lord of the World because he embraces Mother and is her foremost disciple.

The white cube is for the precipitation ‘on earth as in heaven’ of the stronghold of the Great White Brotherhood. The threefold flame of all hearts united through the initiations of the ascension is the very stronghold of our Brotherhood in form and formlessness. Wherever there is an ascended master, wherever there is a chela of that master engaging his light and engaged on the path of ascension’s disciplines, there is the presence of our Brotherhood intact, lighthearted and joyous by the flow of the figure-eight spiral that connects the reality of all worlds.

How to Spot a False Teacher

20 Feb

Jesus foretold the coming of the false teachers in the ‘last days.’ He said they would be wolves in sheep’s clothing who would show great signs and great wonders to deceive the elect. These arch-deceivers are clever, charming, very convincing…and very deadly. Pure and simple, these false teachers are after your light and they will gladly derail you from the true path to get that light

The ascended masters want you to be able to declare your independence from the imposters masquerading as legitimate spiritual teachers. To this end, the masters have formulated a pathway that will lead you unerringly to your own God Consciousness.

However, you must be willing to embrace this path, and one of the obstacles we all encounter on the way is the darkness sown by fallen angels and all agents of evil, no matter what face they wear.

What we must overcome is our attachment to human consciousness, to the limitations of the human mind and to the seeming attraction of the world and all of its diversions.

But this path must be chosen, not coerced.

The ascended masters will never force their students to do anything. Students must be willing to exert themselves to show they have staying power, to lift the weight of darkness that it might become light.

This is the path of discerning the difference between the real Self and the not self…and, if you will but ask, the ascended masters stand ready to show you how to do it.

So how can you tell a false teacher from a true one? That is the subject of this series, and one of the first indications that you may be dealing with a false teacher is if you notice a lot of human ego and human will. There will be flattery, charisma, pride…anything and everything that might appeal to and gratify your human consciousness. A true teacher will seek to help you overcome the carnal mind, not embellish it. A true teacher will, like the true shepherd, lay down his life for his flock. The false teacher has no such desire.

“The false teachers of mankind have one motive:  the subjection of the soul and the energies of the four lower bodies unto their own egos, their own human will…The mystique of the false teacher is the claim of the preferred personality. It is because the human consciousness itself contains some of the elements of the false teacher that it finds itself being drawn in over and over again to the false teaching…In the words of the one who sought and found the inner Christed man of the heart, you will find the key to your own Christ-identity:  “If any man shall say unto you, Lo, here is Christ or there, believe it not….Wherefore if they shall say unto you, Behold, he is in the desert, go not forth; behold, he is in the secret chambers, believe it not. For as the lightning cometh out of the east and shineth even unto the west, so shall also the coming of the Son of man be.” (Matt. 24:23, 26-27.)”

How to Gain Greater Heart Capacity

6 Feb

 

Would you not have a greater heart capacity, beloved? [“Yes!”]

I come to you this evening to tell you, oh, it is so possible! Stretch the heart muscle! Expand the petals of the heart chakra! Breathe upon the fire of the threefold flame and breathe upon it again and know that your breathing exercises are for more than meets the eye.1

Blessed ones, here is how you expand the heart. Everyone has established a certain limit of patience, of tolerance, of indulgence of others. Most people, including yourselves, find that level of limitation. And when someone does try you or test you or torment you beyond a certain level, you, then, are no longer in that state of patience [or tolerance or indulgence]. And at that moment, because of the artificial barriers of the heart that you have erected, [you declare your limit, which] you do not go beyond. [You are unwilling to] walk another mile and another mile, caring for life–caring for life, beloved, loving and still loving, and yet that love is such a power of the discipline of the soul and of the fire of your own spirit. [This is surely not the way to expand the heart!]

Love is surely the greatest quality of God and the most misunderstood. Love is a purging fire! Love is self-discipline and the discipline of the child and the four lower bodies that have grown out of line. [Accept Love without limits and you will expand your heart.]

Yes, beloved, let us test the heart! Let us expand the capacity of heart for the power of God to bring all into submission to the Great Heart of Light! Thus, [there is the need for] the two-edged sword, the mighty sword of discrimination, beloved, whereby there is mercy, whereby there is justice and whereby Love does impel those who have gone out of the way to come back to that center!

⋄ ⋄ ⋄

O beloved ones, for a moment contemplate the seraphim of God who have gathered this night to love you, to love you and to love you! All that we do and say is to love you. You must understand Love that is a piercing fire that will suddenly separate you from the most cherished elements of yourself or your life. You must understand this and get on top of it and go beyond it, beloved.

You must understand that Love does come in 144,000 different flames, if you will. There is no limitation to how Love can be conveyed, and that Love does meet every human need. It does meet it, beloved. This is not an unworldly love or an otherworldly love. This is love that is God’s love, which reaches every level of life. [Embrace it and you will expand your heart!]

O the mighty sunbeams of the Great Central Sun! Bask in them now. Bask in them now, beloved. For the light of the Sun caresses you, and these light rays so gently take from you now that which you are ready to give to your Father-Mother God.

 

Therefore let go. Give to God all that limits you. Receive the limitless light of the Sun, the sun rays, and on these golden beams, beloved, receive now the Holy Spirit.

Each day, think of your Father-Mother Helios and Vesta as you greet the sun. And even for a moment, as you bask in the light, simply say:

I AM receiving now the Holy Spirit of Helios and Vesta
into my mind, into my heart, into my being,
into the organs of my body, into my entire self.
And I AM made Whole by the Whole-I-Spirit of Helios and Vesta.

In this Love abide. In this Love remain steadfast, unmoved, beloved, by all that would take it from you. See how your immovability is the key to your increase of the Spirit of God.

Oh, reach up and simply touch and take now the hand of your Mighty I AM Presence! Hold that hand and clasp it.

Yes, beloved, you are so very, very near to your victory. Treasure, oh, treasure the moments which you endow with the flames of your victory. Treasure the cups of consciousness. Treasure them, beloved, for the moments in the time frame shall be the elements of your eternity.

I AM the Maha Chohan. I woo you to the sacred heart of every ascended one. Make it your goal, beloved, to be that sacred heart and see how the world will truly receive the teaching you so love and you have so internalized. This is a love feast, beloved, a love feast in the Holy Spirit.

A New Perception of Your Mighty I AM Presence

5 Feb

 

I would like to speak to you about the thought form that is in our poster for this retreat, the Sine Wave to the Sun. You might say that this is a different way of showing the Mighty I AM Presence, the Christ Self, and the individual who is ascending to God. You might also say that this sine wave is a ladder of light.

You can see the concentric rings in a dimension of the attitude of the soul climbing, or accelerating, the intensity of light and entering into the successive rings going into the Central Sun, which is the I AM Presence. And here it is depicted as an infinite galaxy of light.

If you can imagine the center of your Mighty I AM Presence as an infinite galaxy of light, you begin to think about a new perception of the Infinite One and the manifestation we have become so accustomed to meditating upon in the chart of the I AM Presence. This would be the individual, as you, clearly manifest as a ray of light coalesced in this dimension. The white fire in the center and the galaxy in the heart denotes the Christ Presence.

Many times we hear people ask, “Who is my Christ Self? Is it myself? Is it someone else? Is it someone with whom I can speak? Is it an energy? Is it a consciousness?” It is all of these things, depending upon your own positioning both on the outside of the sine wave–following it and becoming the sine wave–or being in the center of it, poised in that very perfect point of Cosmic Christ consciousness which is called the laya center….

We descended this ladder of light, each one having free will–each one, for various reasons, presenting himself before the Lord God Almighty in the Person of the Father/Mother God, Alpha and Omega. And therefore, we were given the opportunity to go into the outer universes, out from the original inner retreat in the heart of God. Some had the design of exercising the potential to be co-creator in the Matter spheres. Some wished to exercise free will independent of God. Others went forth as guardian spirits concerned about those who would go forth in a state of independence from the divine union.

For whatever reason, we find ourselves in the same octave, in the same frequency, which is a very narrow band of this physical universe. The outer universe is far more vast than this narrow band. Therefore finding ourselves together on the narrow band, we immediately have at least that in common. We can see one another, we can touch and feel one another, we can understand one another’s consciousness to a certain degree. And we understand one another’s problems because we share similar problems, similar karmic conditions….

This excerpt from a lecture by Elizabeth Clare Prophet was delivered October 9, 1981 during the conference Sine Wave to the Sun and published in the 1981 Pearls of Wisdom Radiant Word Vol. 24 No. 47.

By Thy Grace I AM Love

31 Jan

 

The Presence of Life removes the dust of little things from the garments.  The Presence of Love infuses the soul with a new thought:  “By Thy grace I AM Love.”  Thus does the self stand aside and the Eternal Presence consummate the mystical union between souls.

Purpose is not conspiracy.  Purpose is fulfillment of the nature of Love—service.  To love is to serve.  He that is great in service is perfected in love.  The saints gathered small stones until their strength grew, and then they carried the larger stones to build the temple.  From the base of the mountain we have seen them rise, and it is a joyous occasion as the light upon the face of the shining ones shows that hope has been fulfilled in purpose…

The best things in life are truly free, and freedom is the best thing in life.  Freedom to us is the freedom to create and to fan liberty until in the blaze the imaginings and vanity of the people is shown up in retrospect as a viper to be consumed, to be burned, to be no more!  How long would men carelessly seek to preserve those values which are meaningless, destructive, purposeless and rebellious, carnal in their origin and leading to the ashes of bitterness in futility?

Let all men, then, perceive that God has created a magnificent opportunity for all.  There are no men and women upon the planet who cannot raise their heads in hope and face their God, saying at any age in the tenderness of the reaffirmation of the covenant, “By thy leave, O God.”  Such humility and assignation returns to the Father the right hand of purpose.  Surely it is his will, as soon as the son has demonstrated proficiency with the bow, to hand to him the quiver and the arrow and say, “The universe is thine.”

It is simply a matter of mastery.  Demonstrate proficiency in spiritual things and unify the wholeness of your life expression.  If you have talent, employ it in the salvation of men.

Let those in art seek those art forms
That ennoble the Spirit,
That inspire mothers with child
Until their dreams can be of finer things
That, floating softly in the air,
Do tell of man’s command of prayer,
To speak the Word and see it be
A thing of joy for all to see,
A radiant form of happiness
A child could press onto his breast
And feel a surge of comfort there
Because it spoke eternal care.
God loves you here and loves you there,
The universe is now your home—
Where’er you go, where’er you roam
Your God is there, you are his son—
A spark of light he made—well done.
No more is tarnish on your soul
A plan unfolds:  it is the goal
Be still, my child, and fret no more—
Your heart is now forevermore
God’s open door.
Then step right through
And see the world he’d have you view—
A passport to great majesty
A mantle wear; your freedom be,
And go or come beneath his hand
Your life’s secure; then by God stand!
Creator-son and master of
The world below and up above—
He made you then and loves you still
But you must find his holy will.
The key to Being is thine own—
You asked for bread, he gives no stone—
Save Rock of ages, Christ the Light,
Through him who vanishes our night.
The day eternal shows the way—
The game of life to play
As we uphold the Law of Good
We’ll understand life as we should
And fear will go and all that’s bad
That caused us to be sometimes sad:
The light will raise us from the sod
And seat us on the throne of God.
I AM is Being all secure—
I AM is Being, all that’s pure,
I AM is Life as perfect plan—
I AM is God who dwells in man.

Beloved ones, see in this poem from my heart the ideals that are sometimes put aside and forgotten at the moment when they are most needed.  Meditate on these things and may you ever remain, in the harvest of your life or in the springtime, one who seeks to serve without the mania of egotism that so often hurts one’s brothers needlessly.  Be the comfort of good will to men, and in thy being witness the staunchness of God, rising and raising thy life into the folds of its spiritual identity, into regenerative effort.
