Ten Tips For Peace

Ten Tips for Peace

 

Over the years the Elohim Peace and Aloha have given many tips to help us keep peace. I’d like to give you ten of these tips.

1. Make the best of things. This takes a very upbeat attitude. When working with others, make the best of each situation. Peace and Aloha have said, “We cannot guarantee perfect people anywhere….Do not lament another’s shortcomings, but by the flame of peace supply the difference!”1

Supply the difference that someone you are working with may not have a talent for, an energy for, a desire for. Make up the difference. Make the best of things.

Give of your heart and see how the blossoms of peace spring forth in the hearts of [others]….Serve the Christ in them and see how [positively] they will respond.”2

2. Write down the situations of non-resolution in your day planners. This can be knotty, because every time you open your day planner, you’re going to see the lists of non-resolution and you’re going to want to get rid of those things. And therefore, you have to come to resolution with whomever you do not already have resolution.

Use your day planner “to write down those situations of non-resolution in your life.”3 “Wherever there is a heart that daily does note in his [preferred] planner such non-resolutions and does determine to achieve resolution within himself and with others by sunset, there is a heart who rests in the heart of the Prince of Peace.”4 And that is a wonderful blessing.

So I wrote a mantra for myself that you can also use: “In the name of my mighty I AM Presence, I rest in the heart of the Prince of Peace.

“Rejoice to check off each day that you have said, ‘Peace, be still! Peace, be still! Peace, be still and know that I AM God!’ or when you can say at the end of that day, ‘Truly I have not allowed an incorrect vibration to emanate from this place of the sun (the solar-plexus chakra).’” 5

Let us give the “Peace, be still” mantra very quickly:

Peace, be still! Peace, be still! Peace, be still
and know that I AM God!

Peace, be still! Peace, be still! Peace, be still
and know that I AM God!

Peace, be still! Peace, be still! Peace, be still
and know that I AM God!

Who are you talking to when you say that? You’re talking to your feeling world. You’re talking to something that’s in your carnal mind. You’re talking to something in yourself that is not whole, that is not at peace. And you are commanding your atoms, cells and electrons, the organs of your body and your four lower bodies to be still and stop complaining and stop constantly nagging and saying, “Give me this. Give me that. I want this. I want that.” You are in the peace-commanding presence of your Holy Christ Self and you are the authority over all elements of your lower self through Christ.

3. Forgive and ask to be forgiven. Peace and Aloha say, “Forgive and ask to be forgiven even when you think you are not in the wrong. Do this because you live by the Master’s code of forgiveness. Do it to give another the opportunity to do the same.”6

Perhaps you know that someone else may need to be forgiven or to forgive. By bringing up the subject and being the first to express it, you make it very easy for another to apologize or to be forgiven.

4. Remember your vow. “Remember your determination and even your vow, if you have made it, that you will not be moved from the God-centeredness of love and peace, come what may, even in trifling matters. For have not trifling matters ignited world wars?”7

5. Seek daily resolution by giving the violet flame. Peace and Aloha said: “Seek daily resolution. Put everything into the violet flame!…Examine the rightness of your heart daily to be certain that you have not left frayed edges in any relationship, that you have not abruptly parted from someone without resolution, that you have not left any matter hanging, such as a simple disagreement or discourtesy.”8

Examine your heart. Sometimes people have the idea that the heart is perfect. The heart needs perfecting just as every other chakra needs perfecting. When we want to give love to someone, we call to our Holy Christ Self to send the love of the Sacred Heart of our Holy Christ Self to that person.

We must not assume that our hearts are pure. I think it is a misconception when people in the New Age movement say, “I’m speaking from my heart” and automatically assume “My heart is pure and therefore you can trust what I’m saying.”

We have to purify all of our being, including our heart. The heart is very burdened with its envy, with its jealousy, with its anger. All kinds of vibrations are in people’s hearts, as well as sluggishness from a lifetime of wrong eating. And the fat that covers over the heart is also a block to the flow.

So when we send blessings to people, let us remember to send blessings from our Holy Christ Self and our I AM Presence. And let us continue our daily use of Saint Germain’s Heart Meditations that we might perfect our hearts.

6. Be humble. This is a wonderful state of being, the state of being humble and of having humility. “Be humble before your God. Don’t be a know-it-all but…have a sense of holiness in the presence of one another’s Christ Self and a sense of the holiness of the flame that burns in the heart of the one that sits next to you.”9

When we say, “Be humble,” the corollary is “Judge not.” When we judge others, we are engaging in pride.

7. Forsake harshness. Peace said, “Forsake the jagged ways, the abrupt motions, the absence of grace and the harshness and the cruelty of the word idly spoken, for all of these are an offense to Elohim.”10

8. Do not chatter or criticize. “Take some moments each day to celebrate the vibration of soundlessness.” “Take a vow of silence from senseless chattering.”11 Do not engage in criticism and backbiting.

9. Make your body a chalice for light—every cell, every organ, the etheric, mental, desire and physical bodies. Peace said that we should make every molecule of our body a chalice for light.

“Solve the chemistry of being here below and the biochemistry….You are made of points of light….Seek the divine harmony…of all atoms and cells…and all organs in your being with one another and with the etheric matrix. …Find that equilibrium….Become alchemists of your own temple. See how much more of God you can hold within the chakras, organs and all the components of being.”12

10. Keep the peace with one another. Peace said, “Receive the gentle rebuke from anyone of this community when you abandon your point of peace.”13

Do Not React when Someone Reminds You to Return to Your Center

Here I should remind you not to take offense. If someone comes along and lets you know that you have a fault that they would like to tell you about, they may be right or they may be wrong; but you should consider it always.

I have learned the best lessons about myself from my enemies. I always listen to what my enemies say to me and about me. And I weigh whether or not what they have said is something that I should examine in myself and correct. We all need to do this.

I know that in the community here and throughout the world, there are many people who don’t take kindly to another Keeper of the Flame mentioning to them that they might benefit from changing their ways in this or that matter.

Elohim Peace said, “Remind one another, regardless of rank or position or background or standing, that where there is the breaking of harmony and the breaking of peace there is the fracturing of the mandala” of the entire Church throughout the world. “Do not react when someone…reminds you to return to your center,” to your centeredness in God. “Take the reminder and thank that one with all your heart. Call immediately upon the law of forgiveness….The byword of the peacemakers is ‘I shall not be moved.’”14 And putting that in a mantra, we would say, “In the name of my mighty I AM Presence, I shall not be moved!

The Great Commandment

18 Feb

The Great Commandment, Part 1

 

And one of the scribes came and, having heard them reasoning together and perceiving that he had answered them well, asked him, Which is the first commandment of all?

And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is: Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God is one Lord! And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength. This is the first commandment.

And the second is like, namely this: Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.

And the scribe said unto him, Well, Master, thou hast said the truth, for there is one God and there is none other but he. And to love him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, and with all the soul, and with all the strength, and to love his neighbor as himself is more than all whole burnt-offerings and sacrifices.

And when Jesus saw that he answered discreetly, he said unto him, Thou art not far from the kingdom of God. And no man after that durst ask him any question.

Mark 12:28-34

Love God with All Your Heart

It is a wonderful day to take up the teaching of the Great Commandment. We are poised with Jesus at an hour of great change in his life—a transition, an acceleration, the initiation of the resurrection and that new life of glory which he enters and therefore we enter with him.

We study his words given to John in his Revelation, given unto this hour through all of the saints and prophets. And we come to understand that there is an essence, a seed essence of teaching—and here it is in the Great Commandment.

We make it our own because we know it is our sure defense. And this defense is so necessary for the disciples who would go forth to heal in his name, to cast out devils, to bring mankind into alignment with their I AM Presence.

Those who would follow Jesus in his footsteps must understand the meaning of drinking his cup; they must realize that great protection and vigilance are required every hour, dipping into the communion cup each week, receiving from the altar the fire of the Holy Spirit as that protection on the way.

Let us realize how great, therefore, is the protection of God given to us in this Great Commandment to love the Lord thy God. This means the Lord, the I AM THAT I AM, the I AM Presence representing Elohim (see Pearls of Wisdom, vol. 21, nos. 8-27) where you are. Your representative of the Godhead—in fact, the replica of the Presence of God—is the Mighty I AM Presence.

There is only one Mighty I AM Presence, but we say, “My God and your God,” as Jesus did, (John 20:17) reinforcing the conception that each individual must individualize the God flame and therefore make it apparent, bring it forth, show forth by life—example, words and works, by the very Presence, by the perfume of the soul, by vibration and kindness or brilliance or whatever the virtue—what is the aspect of God that portrays the fullness of the Godhead truly dwelling bodily within us (if we will it so) as it did dwell in the Son of man, Jesus Christ.

This one God of all Israel is the very fire of creation, the Presence of God in the Great Central Sun, the one God who is able to heal all thy diseases, if thou wilt be healed. Therefore, you have with you always the Presence, I AM THAT I AM, that is the concentrate, the Person of the Father bearing the power of Elohim.

Therefore, the commandment is to love the Lord thy God with all thy heart. What is thy heart? Thy heart is a vessel that contains the divine spark, the threefold flame of life. Thy heart is a chalice, it is the Holy Grail. It contains the body and blood of the living Christ.

Loving God with all thy heart is with the full momentum of thy life, for the heart is thy life. It means loving—directing to God all of one’s love and heart.

Thus, the mystery here in the Great Commandment is to give back to God by free will all that he has given us. And by giving to God all of our heart, loving him with all of our heart, we are taking every bit of his life that he sends forth perpetually as the River of Life, as the crystal cord, and saying, “I have received. I will return this life of God with all of my heart.”

Thus, the mystery of the Great Commandment is: life is a two-way street. God sends forth his light; he gives us free will to send it back to him in love. And if we so do, we establish this closed circuit, a mighty circle of life. None can enter, none can penetrate with devices of unreality.

Sending all of our heart’s love to God protects us from ignorance, from karma, from world conditions because we are sealed when we are perpetually loving God. It is a tremendous gift of free will. We have the choice to love or not to love God, to direct our heart to him or not to. And therefore, we can observe the lever of attention, the lever of the heart—its occupation.

For there are some who do not have a pure heart. There are some who retain hardness of heart, the fear of the heart, records of death. These momentums, which are of karma (therefore we say they are karmic), block the flow of pure love, of one hundred percent of our life to God.

We desire to purify the heart, for out of the heart are the issues of life. When we allow the heart’s energies to descend to feed untoward desires and old momentums, these increase in power because our power is in the heart. And then these desires and momentums overtake us, and when we are confronted by them we are not able to defeat them because we have given them our attention.

And therefore, to fulfill the Great Commandment in all of its essence means to daily withdraw the heart’s devotion and love from those extraneous, exterior matters—matters of ambition or ego. For the ego would displace the Christ consciousness of our heart, setting up material goals, desires to acquire, desires of all manner of things in life. And each one of these desires takes a little bit of the momentum of the heart.

And then, when we need the heart for healing, for the supreme gift of life to someone, for raising the dead, for making our own ascension, for winning a cause, for standing for justice, the heart is weak, it cannot perform. We do not have the full power of the Godhead to pour that heart into His desire, His devotion.

When you love someone with all your heart, you begin to know that one very well. You begin to sense his very heartbeat and his soul and spirit. You live and move with him because out of the devotion comes a oneness.

Thus, when the object of your love is God—first and foremost the Mighty I AM Presence and then that Presence of God in all people—when you love God with such a steadfastness of your attention, you begin to know who he really is. You know the Father. There is such a current and an opening established in your life that you speak and he answers. And the acceleration of devotion of your heart clears the pathway for the descent of light. You ask God a question and he answers you by his Holy Spirit, by the Son of God also dwelling bodily within you.

If you don’t practice and exercise and communicate, then one fine day when you need an answer, it will be as though the heavens were leaden and you will hear nothing. Well, if you do not write a letter to someone for many years, and all of a sudden you knock on the door and say, “Here I am!” they will say, “Where have you been all this time? I haven’t heard from you. Now you expect me to be your friend—all of a sudden you need me. Well, I have other things to do today.”

In other words, a friendship or a love requires nourishing, as you water a plant daily. One should not presume upon this love-tie to God. One should have devotion to it as one is devoted to one’s acquaintances and understand that the bond of love needs nourishing.

When you know God because you love him and you feel him, you have a sense of anticipation of the Father’s presence in your life and in your decisions. You begin to know what God would want you to do in the given circumstance. You do not have to ponder every footstep, because your footsteps have a goal and you are moving straight to the goal. You do not have to ask God a thousand questions, because you have the sense of his being and you know what he expects; it is second nature. God has become your second nature because you love him, the Lord thy God, with all thy heart.
