The Ascended Master Paul the Venetian, Lord of the Third Ray and initiator of our hearts, relates a very touching personal experience from his life as an artist in which his sensitive soul, at one with God, bore the unknown grief of another and then the comfort of the Resurrection Spirit that had the power to heal even an angel veiled in flesh:  “I remember so dearly the day when I first developed enough of the divine sense to feel that God and I were one. It had been a cloudy morning, and I had worked long and hard to try to portray the face of an angel, but somehow it was as through the celestial beauty escaped me and there was a jangle in my nerves and senses and feelings.  This was strange, because I had for some time developed a feeling of serenity, of calmness, of knowing, and now here I was desiring out of that calmness and serenity and knowing to portray a celestial being, and I needed to drink deeply of the fountain of peace.  For some reason, which did not seem to break through to my outer senses, I could not still my mind, and so with some measure of disturbance, shall I say, I closed up shop.  I put away my brushes and frankly there was a sadness in my every movement.  It was not a state of utter discouragement, it was just an unusual state of unrest in my feeling world, almost a dire foreboding that something undesirable would happen.”

Paul left the studio and went into the country. “And in the stillness of the approaching country I began to feel the awakening of the sense of peace, so familiar and so dearly loved… I reasoned quite suddenly that I ought to be strong enough to hold a sense of beauty in the midst of the ugliness and garrets of the city.”  Paul reasoned that he could keep his new found serenity but then he heard sobbing and his trembled for mankind and he prayed for her. “And then I decided that I would enter into simple prayer for her.  And as I prayed, the sun came out with greater glory and it was as through the hands of the angels were drawing back the curtain of dark clouds.  And with this change in the environment of the little cemetery, the young lady suddenly ceased to sob and gazed up with wonder.  Her sorrow and her grief were plainly stamped upon one of the most beautiful faces that I have ever seen, and there was my angel–the face I sought.” Paul spoke with the young women and explained that resurrection is in all nature and all things do return and she agreed but she was lonely.  Paul took hold of her hand “and as I prayed, I felt a surge of the Christ radiance go through me, and I watched as every line of her face reflected consolation, mercy, acceptance of the Resurrection Spirit.”

Through his discernment Paul was able to capture nuance on his paintings of Jesus and the twelve which incited the wrath of the powers that be. Paul stood firm and said that artist take the same liberties as madmen and writers. The name of his painting was changed from the Last Supper to the House of Levi. Near the close of his life, his guru, the Maha Chohan, advised Paul that through his Christic disciplines of Love on the path of the Third Ray, self-imposed for many lifetimes, he earned his release from Earth’s schoolroom and was ready to enter into the realms of immortality.
