Nature of God Continued

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
