Saint Germain New Years 1977

31 Dec

Saint Germain large001

Good evening, ladies and gentlemen. Good evening, knights and ladies of the flame. My heart is more than joy-filled this night as I come. I come to see this place filled with the golden glow of candlelight that is within your very own heart. Each one of you now will start a cosmic flame of victory, a cosmic flame of freedom. Here now the will to begin has proven unto me that your way is that way of selflessness, surrender – now to win.

I AM the cleansing action of the sacred fire within you that clears the way for the coming of the Holy Spirit. We are watching the vessels of consciousness of Keepers of the Flame as though you were newborn babes in incubators. We watch you with the watchful eye of the Guru, and only when you become Guru will you know how watchful is that eye of the teacher for the student on the path of righteousness. We watch the Keepers of the Flame throughout the earth. And we nourish and we come and we love and we nourish still. You are our children.

And so I come. I come joyously at the behest of the Lords of Karma and the Darjeeling Council and by your own hearts’ calls to dedicate a new year and a new cycle. And so in preparation for my coming and the address that I would give to you this night, I have reviewed that which I have presented to you on previous occasions in the past year and in previous years. And my review has been of the effects of my dictations upon each individual soul, upon those who have heard my word through the messengers and upon those who have felt the emanation and the radiation of the flame of freedom with my coming.

Surrendering Selfishness

And I have gone to the Darjeeling Council and I have conversed with the ascended masters concerning the effect of the flame of freedom and of the teachings of the seventh-ray masters upon the evolutions of earth. And do you know what Mother Mary has told me? She has told me, as I have also seen from the record, that when I have released the chastisement and the rebuke, when I have sent forth my lectures on selfishness and the sloth of the human consciousness, that this has produced the greatest fruit and the greatest reaction – a positive action for good and for righteousness and for a determined stand – not only among Keepers of the Flame, but among the souls who are attuned to the symphony of the violet ray.

I come once again, then, to denude and to place before the denuded self those spirals of selfishness that have stood in the way of the white-fire coil rising for the adornment of the Mother and the Child within you. I come, then, to poke a few holes through your concepts of yourselves that are less than true, views which you have held which have placed you a little farther along the Path than you in actuality are. For sometimes, you see, students think of themselves as more advanced than they are, and sometimes students think of themselves as being far behind all the rest when they in fact are indeed blest with a consciousness of purity and innocence that is truly the joy of the angels.

Let us then first deal with those who think they are a few steps beyond others on the Path. Let us deal with those, then, who perhaps have been with me and my teachings for a longer number of years than others, or some who feel they have had the association with the ascended masters, or others who feel because they are on in years they are thereby superior to others of lesser years’ duration on this earth.

Well, I speak, then, I speak to you. For as you have been told, the scales of selfishness fall daily from the eyes and from the body temple of those who are pursuing a path of liberation. It must ever be so, beloved ones, that the transcending path of soul liberation must bring to view those aspects of selfishness which you did not view yesterday and which you did not view the day before, but which today have become the very mote in the eye, the eye that would behold the closer view of God.

Advancing Sunward

Threefold flame and galaxyAnd so you see, even in the transcending of the self and the moving across the cosmos by the spirals of all-consuming love, there is that aspect of relativity that comes from the coordinate of the self against the backdrop of infinity. And therefore, the sun, as you behold it, shines a little differently on you today than it did yesterday because you are advancing sunward and therefore seeing other veins of consciousness, other flows and manifestations of the angles of the Mind of God.

Therefore understand that today’s level of perfectionment must be more advanced than yesterday’s and less advanced than that of the morrow. This is not the limitation of time and space or past and present and future, but it is the unfoldment by spirals and by spherical consciousness of your own focalization of cosmic consciousness here in that point of awareness, in that very soul identity that is in the state of becoming more and more and more of God.

Therefore understand that even in the consciousness of the messenger there is a constant reevaluation of life and the priorities of life and those energies which may be invested in the various manifestations of service on earth. That which yesterday might have been an innocent pastime or diversion today seems to her to be absolute selfishness and indulgence.

Understand, then, that in the course of evolution, even the ascended masters find ways and means for acceleration and expansion and an intensification of service. For thereby it is the leaven, the leaven of the consciousness of the Christ that works together in the body of God on earth and in heaven to work a mighty work for God, because each day brings us to a more concentrated and hence consecrated level of absorption in the things of the Spirit as those things of the Spirit apply to the here and now in Matter.

Now do you understand what I have said, beloved ones? [“Yes!”] I thank you. For you see, I would make a very specific application to your own life. I am certain that if you have taken to heart all that has transpired in this class that you will surely see that your life as you lived it in the weeks and months before your coming must now change to a newness of life, a new vibration, a new consciousness. For after all, could you stand in the presence of Omri-Tas and Mighty Victory and live again as you lived before? You must of course put on a greater mantle of awareness, of freedom, and of victory and therefore be reborn. And therefore the rebirth does come daily, precious hearts and precious loved ones.

Impetus For The New Year

29 Dec

Gautama Buddha meditating

 

In the stillness of the flame of Shamballa I come. I come with my light, like the fabled wand of old. I come with a rod of energy–God’s energy that bursts as a star. And I stand, the Lord of the World, directing the light of the Ancient of Days to all of the children of my heart whose flames beat one with my own. I come from Shamballa, centered in the Royal Teton, yet I AM everywhere in space and I dwell in the heart of time.

Lo, I AM the Buddha and I AM the fulfillment of your heart’s longing for joy. This is indeed the hour of joy, the very bursting of light in each heart, the impetus for the new year that in actuality does start with winter solstice and the lighting of the taper in the heart of the Great Central Sun as Alpha bows to Omega and extends to her the gift of the flame.

And then Omega steps down from her throne and passes the flame to the legions of seraphim who compose the honor guard of the Divine Mother. And the first of the mighty seraphim, the Captain of the Lord’s Hosts, Justinius, does take that taper from Omega to light the second in command. And one by one the tapers are lit until, across the vastness of spacelessness and timelessness, the mighty seraphim wend their way unto the worlds within and the worlds without.

Curious as it might seem given your understanding of the speed of light, the ritual of the fulfillment of the passing of the taper of the new year does not occur on Terra until the hour of the year’s turning. And so the grand ritual of the hours from the Great Central Sun through millions of galaxies manifests on earth in the moment of the appearance of the mighty thoughtform that descends from the heart of God to the heart of Sanat Kumara, thence into my own heart as the adoration to the Cosmic Virgin is sent forth from this planetary orb.

As we receive the impartation of the taper, we return that fire and that love back to Omega, and this is the grand ritual of millions and millions of hosts of light, Buddhas, and consciousnesses one with the Elohim. And therefore, when that focal point of light does reach our heart and we send it back, there is the weaving of the cosmic daisy.

And for each and every one who receives the taper of the Mother in the Central Sun, there is the return current that forms another petal of this cosmic daisy. And the yellow center is indeed the Great Central Sun Magnet, and all of these petals in all dimensions going forth are the action of the flow of the love of the hosts of light for Alpha and Omega and the love that is returned. And this weaving–this weaving of this grand design is for the action, the interaction, and the integration of life flow–as Above, so below.

Do you know, you have spoken of Spirit and of Mater. I desire to tell you something this night concerning the energy of God. It is that as that energy pulsates from Alpha to Omega and to the worlds within and the worlds without, microsecond by microsecond that energy is becoming Matter, becoming Spirit, becoming Matter. You cannot even calculate the fragments of time. They are so infinite, as it were, in their smallness as almost to be not increments at all, but the mighty cosmic flow.

But I desire that you should know that you may elevate and accelerate your consciousness and your vision that the planes of the consciousness of God are not simply two large bands across a cosmos, one of Spirit and one of Matter, but instead there is an infinitude of the bouncing of energy from Spirit to Matter until the entire cosmos is simply one pulsating sphere of God. Suspended in that sphere am I, suspended in that sphere are you. And in that suspension we find that soul, that becoming, that Elohim.

Do you really know when you are on earth and when you are in heaven? Do you really know when you are Spirit or Matter? Moment by moment the pulsation of energy from the heart to the farthest periphery is a focalization of intensity. But then all is stillness as the worlds seem to be still, as energy seems to be motionless, and even you seem to be in the stillness of your flame of meditation. In this stillness is a vast movement, a vast cycling of the energy that is God.

Now that I have taught you a lesson, a first lesson in the all-chemistry of God, can you not then take my hand and come with me and skip in and out of planes of consciousness? Come with me in your finer body this night, in your soul. Come to the Royal Teton Retreat and come to Shamballa, the goal. Can you not see how easy it is to lay aside one vehicle for another, or to accelerate this vehicle to the point of an etheric consciousness? God will withhold nothing from you.

Enter, then, the sphere of harmony in this beginning of the new year.

Nature of God Continued

7 Dec

Cosmic Beings

Continuing our journey through the various manifestations of God, we arrive at what are called “cosmic beings.”

Proceeding out from the Great Central Sun, beings who have earned the right through concentration of energy, of consciousness, of awareness of God, step down this release of sacred fire for lesser evolutions who have not passed the initiations required for them to contain such a concentrated manifestation of light. The term “cosmic being” is a title, not only a description. One newly ascended from the planes of earth with 51 percent of his karma balanced would not be termed a “cosmic being.” A cosmic being is one who is aware of self as cosmos, who can ensoul a cosmos and be aware of energy fields and the control of energy fields that are vast, beyond our ability to even comprehend.
There are certain cosmic beings who came forth when Saint Germain volunteered earlier in this century to help mankind and to give the dispensation of the violet flame. One was his teacher, the Great Divine Director; another is Mighty Cosmos, who releases the secret rays. Victory from Venus is also termed a cosmic being. It simply means their awareness of the God flame is able to approximate measures of cosmic consciousness, the highest that can be contained.[1]

The term cosmic being is used in two ways.  First, it denotes “an ascended master who has attained cosmic consciousness and ensouls the light/energy/consciousness of many worlds and systems of worlds across the galaxies to the Sun behind the Great Central Sun.”[2]

The second meaning is: “a being of God who has never descended below the level of the Christ, never taken physical embodiment, made human karma or engaged in sin.”[3]  Examples of such beings are the Five Dhyani Buddhas. The word “dhyani” is roughly equivalent to “meditation.” The Dhyani Buddhas are not historical figures, like Gautama Buddha, but transcendent celestial beings who symbolize universal divine principles or forces.

Solar Hierarchies

Now we will see how the “three” and the “four” multiply to make the next subdivision of “twelve”—twelve essential qualities of the Godhead.

Surrounding Alpha and Omega, then, are cosmic beings and the twelve solar hierarchies. These hierarchies of light act as step-down transformers. We refer to the twelve hierarchies surrounding the central altar by the names of the signs of the zodiac, for want of any other name. We speak, then, of a hierarchy of Capricorn, a hierarchy of Cancer, a hierarchy of Aries and of Libra. These hierarchies are mandalas of cosmic beings. For instance, the hierarchy of Capricorn could contain as its nucleus 144,000 cosmic beings acting as step-down transformers for the flame that is released from the heart of Alpha and Omega in the Great Central Sun which we call God-power. It is the energy that initiates cycles. Each of these twelve solar hierarchies has an appointment by God to release a certain aspect of the creative light.[4]

Twelve Solar Hierarchies

We find that the stepping-down of energies is individed over and over again. As the twelve hierarchies take the twelve parts, other hierarchies break these down. As frequency is stepped down, so other virtues are borne by separate lifestreams, by separate ascended masters, angels, archangels, and so forth. In the hierarchy of heaven, all have their place; all have their function.
The angels are beings who have not left the purity of God’s consciousness, except in some cases where they volunteered to incarnate in bodies like ours to help mankind. Angels that are called the seraphim and the cherubim who have never touched human creation, have never incarnated and been subject to the fall and the density of imperfection, maintain the highest purity of the consciousness of God. There are ministering seraphim and cherubim who make their way twenty-four hours a day standing before the altar of God and singing “Holy, holy, holy, Lord God Almighty!”[5] They hold the frequency of purity which they radiate to the lifewaves and evolutions that continue in the vastness of cosmos.
Scientists consider there are billions of galaxies. Billions of galaxies! When we think of the vastness of the galaxy we live in and then try to comprehend billions of these revolving around a Great Central Sun, it almost defies our ability to equate with the cosmos in which we live. And all of this controlled by hierarchy, cosmic consciousness, beings aware of self as God, as cosmos. And yet all of this which scientists have observed is still only the physical spectrum of the cosmos—a very thin line, a frequency. What is above and below this frequency is yet another vastness of cosmos, of infinity, and also of planes that still are part of time and space. We see that in examining hierarchy, we do need to expand consciousness even to contain a concept of what Morya calls commeasurement—the ability of the individual soul to measure itself against the Infinite, which is quite a task in itself.
The key hierarchies, then, are the twelve hierarchies that form the cosmic clock around the central sun….Then come the cosmic beings. We see a trinity, an order of manifestation where there are three kingdoms of servants, each serving as one of the aspects of the threefold flame.[6]

The Three Kingdoms

The Elemental Kingdom: The Power Ray

The following description of the elemental kingdom is from “The Torch Is Passed”:

The Elohim, the most powerful aspect of the consciousness of God, include in their hierarchy elemental builders of form. Elementals are the sylphs that control the air, the gnomes that control the earth, the undines that control the water, and the salamanders that control the fire element. These four aspects also govern man’s four lower bodies. Serving directly under the Elohim are the beings of nature—the four beings of the elements, who are the twin flames who have dominion over all of the evolutions of the gnomes, salamanders, sylphs, and undines.
Oromasis and Diana are the twin flames of the fiery element. Their salamanders may stand before you nine to twenty feet tall. When you see them, they are a moving rainbow fire with an identity in the fire. They are a white light—a white flame merging into the colors of the rainbow. They are a spectacular sight! They concentrate the energies of sacred fire. They are servants of man, servants of the ascended masters. They serve to keep the physical, mental, and emotional bodies clean by the action of fire. Oromasis and Diana have given dictations. They are ascended beings. But their salamanders are not ascended; they are serving in the planes of Matter. When the dictations have come forth from Oromasis and Diana, there has been an intensity of heat greater than the chelas ever imagined or dreamed they could experience.
Then there are Aries and Thor, twin flames of the air element, who also govern mental action. Under them serve the mighty sylphs who control the air currents, air pressure, and the purification of the air. And they are fighting the pollution of the air and bearing the burden of mankind’s pollution. We have the ascended beings Neptune and Luara, who control the beings of the water—the undines—and the flow of energy in the feeling body of mankind. Virgo and Pelleur control the earth element and the gnomes. All of these, then, serve under the Elohim.
The seven mighty Elohim and their divine complements, their feminine counterparts, are the builders of creation. It was they who responded to the fiat of the Lord God “Let there be light: and there was light” and the fiat of creation to create the worlds.[7) The term “Elohim” is a sacred sound. It is an intonation. Even the repetition of the name releases a tremendous power, and so we give it as a chant: Elohim!
We find that throughout the Bible there are hundreds of references to God as the Divine Us, as Elohim, which is a plural noun, showing that man’s awareness of God was as a plural being, as a dual being of the polarity of the masculine and feminine. The Elohim are the Spirits of God, the morning stars which sang together in the beginning.[8] They represent the power of creation—the blue ray, the blue flame in your heart. They represent, in the Trinity of Father, Son, and Holy Spirit, the Father aspect; or, in Brahma, Vishnu, and Siva, the aspect of Brahma—the thrust of creation that comes forth from the masculine aspect of the Godhead.[9]

The Human Kingdom: The Wisdom Ray

The second kingdom in the hierarchy, corresponding to the Second Person of the Trinity, is the kingdom of the Christed ones—the sons and daughters of God, including the seven chohans of the rays and their embodied chelas. These are the ascended masters, and this is you in the state of becoming an ascended master. Because you are evolving in time and space, your evolution will culminate in the kingdom that falls on the second ray, the yellow aspect of the threefold flame. It is the mission of the beings who serve in this order to anchor the mind of God, the intelligence of God, the directives of the Creator’s consciousness. And as we focus that intelligence, the beings of the elements become the servants to implement that intelligence, that intelling of the mind of God.
Therefore, serving in this aspect in this kingdom of hierarchy, we are given tests and initiations in the correct use of mental faculties, in the correct use of free will, in the reason of the Logos. And this is the action of the Word that is made flesh.[10] It is the Word incarnate that is that Second Person of the Trinity. That is this kingdom. So ascended masters and their chelas moving upward in the spiral of God consciousness comprise that order God has created to be the directors of creation and of the flow.[11]

The Angelic Kingdom: The Love Ray

Finally, the third kingdom, functioning in the pink flame of divine love: the angelic hosts—the seven mighty archangels and their divine complements and all of the different types of angels that serve mankind. They serve us at the level of the feeling body. They bring to us hope and joy and laughter, constancy, and a quickening. They sustain the mental concepts that we receive that are ours to hold in our kingdom, the second aspect. Without the angelic hosts, the concepts which we give forth would not put on the feeling body, the desire body that draws the tremendous momentum of the Creator for precipitation in the physical plane. There is very little that we can bring forth as alchemists unless we have the feeling of the creation, the intense love of the creation, the love of that which we are bringing forth.
The angelic hosts silently stand by the children of the light and the sons and daughters of God. They stand guard as sentinels, as pillars of fire, guarding our creation, guarding our consciousness, giving us that quickening in moments of doubt and despair when the mission must go on, when we must conquer. They infuse us with that energy which is the feeling of God, which is that momentum.[12]

The Balance of the Three Kingdoms

How do the three kingdoms relate to each other?  Are they completely separate evolutions or do they play complementary roles in the creation?  Mrs. Prophet explained it like this:

These three kingdoms working in balance, in harmony, are assigned to outpicture the trinity of the threefold flame of life on a cosmic scale. The very flame that burns at Shamballa, that is within our hearts—the blue, the yellow, and the pink—has all of this as ramification in the cosmic hierarchy. Studying these kingdoms of hierarchy, we also learn something about how we apply the flame that is in our hearts. We learn, then, that it is the energy of the blue ray, the thrust of power, that gives impetus to the idea that is contained within the mind of God. Without that thrust of energy, the idea has no momentum. It is like the arrow that is shot from the bow. It is the energy of the pulling back that gives the momentum to the arrow that is the idea of God going into manifestation.
It is the action of the pink flame of love that sustains the creation. This is the action of the Holy Spirit. The angelic hosts are instruments of the Holy Spirit. When we have received the thrust of power, the law, the blueprint of what has to be created, when we have set the mental matrix of the idea, when we have brought forth the creation through love, there is then the necessity to sustain and nourish the creation. That sustaining, that staying power, that staying energy, is always supplied by the angelic hosts. And it is supplied in ourselves by the development of love and the virtues, the qualities, and the feelings that are necessary.
We spoke of the balanced threefold flame as being the mark of the Christed One, the mark of attainment in the new age. We also see that on a cosmic scale in the Macrocosm, it is necessary for these three kingdoms to function in harmony so that in a planet, in a solar system, the threefold flame, as ensouled by hierarchies, is also in balance. If mankind evolving toward becoming masters of life do not even know that that is the path they are on, do not even understand initiation or the laws governing initiation, do not understand hierarchy as a chain of being, how can they pursue even their own way, even their own kingdom of becoming Christed ones? They know not that to become the Real Self is the goal of life. Since that purpose and that goal have not been set for mankind, they cannot even begin to understand the fusion with the other two kingdoms—the beings of the elements and the angelic hosts.[13]

The Seven Rays in the Three Kingdoms

God’s complexity of manifestation multiplies again as we discern how the principle of the seven rays permeates the three kingdoms.  In each kingdom, the beings that serve and evolve there are differentiated by their natural affinity for one of the seven rays.

The chart below shows different sets of hierarchs related to the seven rays: The Seven Elohim, who oversee the elemental kingdom; the Seven Archangels, who head the angelic bands on the seven rays; and the Seven Chohans or Lords of the Rays, who teach unascended mankind the path of personal Christhood.

hierarchs of the seven rays in the three kingdoms

Let’s conclude our journey with the mystery of the name(s) of God and his manifold manifestations.

As we have seen, many spiritual beings who interact with unascended mankind reveal their identity only partially, as expressed in their names:

  • Alpha and Omega: The first and last letters of the Greek alphabet that symbolize the beginning and the ending
  • Mighty Victory: Bearer of the consciousness of victory
  • Great Divine Director: One who holds in his causal body the divine plan for many lifestreams
  • Saint Germain’s name means “Holy Brother.”

In each case we have only been given a name for each one that expresses a particular quality of God. Their true, inner name, i.e. the key to their full identity, remains veiled from us.  Mrs. Prophet comments:

There is not a name in hierarchy that’s the name of the master. Saint Germain is not Saint Germain’s real name. El Morya is not El Morya’s real name. They are names that they use that keys into a certain portion of their causal body. If they gave you their total name, you would have control of their causal body, so they don’t give you the full name.[14]

Like these spiritual beings, every human soul has an inner name.  The inner name is a sound frequency that expresses the real, complete identity of that being. This sacred name holds the key that unlocks the power of the causal body of that being.  Thus, until people acquire a level of self-mastery that precludes misuses of that power, their own inner name as well as the true names of the ascended hosts will remain veiled from them.

Conclusion

This concise overview of how the ascended masters explain the nature of God has shown us a number of principles:

  1. God is One
  2. God exists and acts both within and beyond the creation that we know as the cosmos or the universe
  3. The Supreme One God is not really knowable by human beings
  4. God steps down his vibration and manifests in and through myriad beings and lifeforms at many levels of existence; he can be known by human beings through these many manifestations
  5. All life, having the essence of God in it, is meant to evolve by assimilating more and more of God’s consciousness

The Nature of God- Ascended Masters Perspective

4 Dec

The Father/Mother God

Let’s turn our attention to the ascended masters’ explanation of what God is.  Our first excerpt is from a lecture by Mrs. Prophet called “The Torch Is Passed.” [1] She uses the principle of hierarchy to explain how God manifests throughout cosmos.

In this lecture we will give an outline of hierarchy and of the Great White Brotherhood, because it is important that we understand the order that is heaven’s first law and how that order manifests in the release of light from the central sun all the way down from the coordinates of hierarchy to our point in time and space.

Beginning in the heart of the Great Central Sun, hierarchy manifests as the stepping-down of the energies of Alpha and Omega, of the sacred AUM, of the I AM THAT I AM that is the fiery focal point for the whole of creation, the whole of the cosmos. The Elohim and cosmic beings carry the greatest concentration, the highest vibration of light that we can comprehend in our state of evolution. Alpha and Omega are beings ascended who represent and focus the Father-Mother God in the Great Central Sun. They are the highest expression of twin flames that we know of, and we refer to them as our Father-Mother God. John the Beloved heard them called “the beginning and the ending.” In fact, it was the Lord who spoke, “I AM Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending.”[2] [3]

An additional definition of Alpha and Omega:

The Divine Wholeness of the Father-Mother God affirmed as the “beginning and the ending” by the Lord Christ in Revelation. Ascended twin flames of the Cosmic Christ consciousness who hold the balance of the masculine-feminine polarity of the Godhead in the Great Central Sun of cosmos. Thus, through the Universal Christ, the Word incarnate, the Father is the origin and the Mother is the fulfillment of the cycles of God’s consciousness expressed throughout the Spirit-Matter creation.[4]

Father/Mother God

Thus, at the highest known point of being in the Great Central Sun, we find two ascended beings, twin flames, who focus the consciousness of God for the cosmos in its masculine (Spirit, Father) and feminine (Matter, Mother) polarity.

This statement has tremendous implications for how the masters view divine existence. As ascended beings, Alpha and Omega have passed through the long journey through Matter and back to Spirit. They are part of the creation—and though they have tremendous power, they cannot be the creators of the creation.

The I AM THAT I AM

Ascended masters frequently use another set of names for God, terms derived from the Bible: Lord God Almighty, the Almighty, or Almighty God. These names point to one attribute of God: Possessing all-power.

Just as often, they speak simply about God, the Lord God or the Most High God.

They also express the name of God as the I AM or I AM THAT I AM—the name of God revealed to Moses in the burning bush.

And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them?
And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.[5]

When God revealed himself as the I AM THAT I AM, it was the most compact, self-contained statement of being that could possibly be given. “I AM.” Not, I am this or I am that.  Simply, I AM. I exist, I am what I am, and that is all I will say about it.  “I AM” It is the highest statement of being, not defined by attributes but simply by existence.

There is one other appellation that may help us understand the Supreme God: The Nameless One, also called “the Nameless One from out the Great Central Sun.”  Just like “I AM THAT I AM,” the title “Nameless One” points to a God whose attributes are not revealed to us.

This being once gave a dictation through Elizabeth Clare Prophet and said this:

From out the Great Central Sun I, the Nameless One, do speak to my beloved. I have opened the channels of light. And I am the Nameless One, for to give you a name,[6] beloved, would give you access to my Causal Body.[7] People of earth are not yet ready to access that Causal Body. Therefore I speak out of profound love for your being that once was a God-free being, as I am, but now does perceive out of the windows of a limited self.  (…)
For I am in the white fire core of the Central Sun. I have stepped down my vibration millions of times to speak to you. Thus my voice is the voice of one who knows the science of the creation of worlds. Can you not call upon me for the creation of solutions to these minor and major problems you are facing?

Who is the Nameless One?  Does this term relate to the transcendent Creator God?  This might be so given this sentence in his dictation: “one who knows the science of the creation of worlds.”

A dictation by the Cosmic Being Mighty Victory corroborates this possibility.  Victory said:

Beloved ones, the Four and Twenty Elders are standing in awe of Sanat Kumara, the Ancient of Days, who himself, upon the great white throne, stands and bows before the Nameless One, the Almighty, who bequeathed to him the opportunity for the salvation of earth. The hosts of the Lord and the Cosmic Council have given all that can be given thus far in answer to your calls for the increase of the spin of this earth planet you call home.[8]

Thus, by equating the Nameless One with the Almighty, we may conclude that the term Nameless One refers to the Creator God of the universe. If this is so, the words spoken by the Nameless One are another confirmation that our Creator God is intimately connected and concerned with every aspect of his creation.

Attributes of God

For centuries, mankind had tried to define what God is, by ascribing attributes to God—often human-like, anthropomorphic attributes. Whenever we ascribe an attribute to something, this is simultaneous an act of exclusion or placing limitations on God. If we say God is something—say “compassionate,” we simultaneously say he is not hateful or vengeful or overly just. In other words, we begin to limit our understanding of what God is by ascribing attributes to him.

Yet, we learned from our review of the I AM THAT I AM and the Nameless One that God will not be limited by human thinking and feeling.  He or she or it is what he or she or it is.  It’s important to understand this aspect of the debates about God, so you can accurately represent the ascended masters’ teachings about the true nature of God.

The Triune God

As we continue our search for the nature of God from the I AM THAT I AM and the Father/Mother God, we see that more and more attributes of God are being revealed.

In both the east and the west we find the concept of the threefold nature of God. Hinduism, which recognizes Brahman as the supreme God, characterizes him as consisting of the trinity of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva—the Creator, Preserver and Destroyer.  Hinduism also recognizes the concept of Shakti, meaning “sacred force” or “empowerment.” Shakti personifies the divine feminine, understood to be the creative force that permeates the universe. She is sometimes referred to as the “Great Divine Mother.”

The Christian religion likewise recognizes a triune nature or three “persons” within the supreme Godhead: that of God the Father (Yahweh), God the Son (Jesus Christ) and God the Holy Spirit. In Catholicism, we see the additional reverence for God as Mother in the person of Mary the Mother, “Mother of God.”

Trinity

Taken as a unit, the Trinity expresses what the masters call the threefold flame, an organizing principle found all through cosmos.

The primary qualities of the threefold flame are Power (the Father aspect), Wisdom (the Son aspect) and Love (the Holy Spirit aspect).

The Four Personalities of God

Adding a new dimension to the concept of the Trinity, we arrive at the notion of a fourfold divinity.

The Ascended Master Saint Germain explained to us the fourfold nature of God, as follows: God has four different “faces;” he manifests through four different “personalities.” These are characteristic of four different ways of how God interacts with the creation. The four personalities are:

  • God the Father: The Impersonal Impersonality
  • God the Son: The Impersonal Personality
  • God the Mother: The Personal Personality
  • God the Holy Spirit: The Personal Impersonality

 

Four Personalities of God

Let’s look at each of the Personalities of God in more detail.

God as Father: The Impersonal Impersonality

The image of God as Father is correlated with the etheric quadrant, the realm of pure ideas and ideals. In the diagram we see that God as Father has the ++ polarity; it is pure Spirit.

What is an Impersonal Impersonality? It is a Law. It is a principle. It is a Spirit. That is why it is written, “God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.”[9] But we need not leave God as a Spirit, as an Impersonal Impersonality, for he did not leave himself as such. The Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld his glory.[10] The only way you can behold an impersonal God is if he will personify an aspect of himself.[11]

Of all the world religions, Judaism and Islam are most clearly centered on God as Father, in his aspect of Lawgiver and director of all life. In the east, Confucianism expresses love for God as Father in a deep respect for law, discipline and tradition.  Buddhism, which does not recognize a personal God, best fits in this category of God as Father because of its striving for unity with the abstract principle of divine existence.

Within Christianity, emphasis on God as Father is found most strongly in traditional, fundamentalist Protestantism.

God as Son: The Impersonal Personality

The image of God as Son is associated with the mental quadrant, the realm of cognition. The Son aspect of God, being born of Father and Mother, is the mediator between the two, the one who is able to communicate both “up” to the Father and “down” to the Mother.  As such, the Son has the mixed polarity, – +, that signifies this intermediary position between Spirit (+) and Matter (–).

And so in the Christed ones and sons and daughters of God, we find revealed a personality that is yet impersonal. The Christ is a personality, a figure, someone we can know, yet who is impersonal to the extent that he dispenses the laws of a cosmos equally among the multitudes, among his followers. He teaches the Law. He does not enter into human relationships or family ties. He remains the teacher—impersonal, yet personal.[12]

Christianity in its totality, being named after Christ the Son, is focused most clearly on the Son aspect of God.

We also find this aspect in Hinduism in the form of the worship of Krishna, the eighth incarnation of Vishnu, who represents the Second or Son aspect of the Hindu Trinity.

God as Mother: The Personal Personality

God as Mother is positioned in the emotional quadrant. Here we find the double negative (– –), meaning the place where God is descended to the deepest point in Matter—and as such becomes very tangible to the creation.

Then God enters the heart of the Mother in Matter, and we experience God as Mother, the most personal person we will ever know, the most intimate relationship we will ever have—the Mother and the child. We get to know God in the nearest, dearest sense of that ever-present Mother, that flame of love omnipresent, very personal. The face we can always see is the face of our mother.[13]

God as Mother shows itself most prominently in Hinduism, in the form an abundance of deities, both masculine and feminine, that play very direct, immediate roles in the lives of the devotees. It’s hard to imagine a more “personal” religious environment.

Within Christianity, it’s the Catholic Church that fully embraced the aspect of God as Mother, in the form of worship of Mary the Mother of Jesus, the Queen of Heaven and Mother of God.

God as Holy Spirit: The Personal Impersonality

In the earth quadrant we find God as the Holy Spirit.  Like the Son, the Holy Spirit has a mixed polarity, but it is the opposite of that of the Son: – +.  Just as Father and Mother are in polarity, the Son and the Holy Spirit are in polarity to each other.

At the line of the Holy Spirit, God becomes a Personal Impersonality, just the reverse of the Impersonal Personality. And the reverse comes as a matter of frequency, as a matter of vibration. The Holy Spirit is a very present yet unseen help. It is the Comforter who comes when the avatar ascends, who teaches us all things. We can almost touch the Holy Spirit, yet not quite. We converse with the Holy Spirit. We feel that presence in each breath we take, and yet it is the unseen one. It is the Personal Impersonality.[14]

Taoism characterizes the divine as the impersonal flow of the Great Tao through the universe. The Tao is the One and the Way. Taoists’ striving is focused on becoming one with that flow of the One. Zoroastrianism reveres God as Fire. In essence, both focus on the Holy Spirit aspect of God.

Within Christianity, Pentecostal movements in particular have embraced this aspect of God as Holy Spirit.
