Setting Forth the Blueprint of Community

31 Oct

A Worldwide Antahkarana

Community challenges us to master the interaction of spiritual-material energies. The concept of a community that stretches worldwide is antahkarana, or the web of life. Wherever the chelas are, the community exists, but unless the chelas and the guru are together in one place, there is not a duplicate of the Great Central Sun Magnet to hold the balance for the earth.

An outer focus of the Great White Brotherhood with a living messenger and living chelas is something that has not succeeded in a long time. Today I was contemplating the mystery of community, and I knew in my heart that along with Mother Mary’s teaching on the birth of the Manchild, the next most important step was to form the cradle in which to place the Manchild.

Without question, I would lay down my life a thousand times for the community to endure, and the only way it will endure is through living people who have become the essence of the master. Each of us must have such deep love for El Morya or for any of the brothers of light that we recognize that our reason for being is to transfer this torch of community.

If we do not leave the continuity of the Great White Brotherhood’s name, its organization and its teaching upon the planet for those who follow us, we will not have retained an open door for the traveler—the traveler who needs a hostel when he is weary. And we read about the traveler on the first page of the book, New Era Community.

The Blueprint of Community

Let us open the book to the page following the title page. Here, on an unnumbered page, El Morya sets forth the blueprint of the community:

Wayfarer, friend, let us travel together. Night is near, wild beasts are about, and our campfire may go out. But if we agree to share the night watch, we can conserve our forces.

Tomorrow our path will be long and we may become exhausted. Let us walk together. We shall have joy and festivity. I shall sing for you the song your mother, wife and sister sang. You will relate for me your father’s story about a hero and his achievements. Let our path be one.

Be careful not to step upon a scorpion, and warn me about any vipers. Remember, we must arrive at a certain mountain village.

Traveler, be my friend.*

el_morya4tiny

Let us look at what El Morya is saying here. I would like you to see that this writing is a glyph. It is just like taking a grid of the master’s mind. He has decided that he is going to convey certain energies that are keys on the points of a grid, where vertical meets horizontal, Alpha meets Omega, at the point at which the lines cross. El Morya has selected certain key points on the grid, and he wants to superimpose them upon our consciousness.

These first four paragraphs of the book contain the entire matrix of community. First, the community is based upon divine friendship. Second, it is based upon a common journey. So the Zen master El Morya says, “Wayfarer, friend, let us travel together.”

The purpose of friendship is for the journey, for movement on the Path. El Morya mentions movement in this book at the very start. By the fifth word in the book, you know that you are moving with the Mercurian master. Then he gives you the reasons for moving together: “Night is near, wild beasts are about, and our campfire may go out.”

He is establishing the whole purpose of friendship and community. “If we agree to share the night watch, we can conserve our forces.” Conservation of cosmic forces is the purpose of community. We can do better together than we can alone because we have a common foe and limited resources. If we pool our resources, we can arrive at the mountain village.

The image of that mountain village keys right into our soul—the archetypal pattern, the Himalayan fastnesses, a place somewhere in the vast beyond, where you finally arrive at a village. In the heart of the village is a rustic sort of a little house, and in that house is the master.

You sense the crudity of the surroundings, which denotes that the value of this master is on inner planes. That is not to say that the master could not be found in a palace, but these are archetypal patterns, like finding Babaji and his disciples in the midst of nowhere or finding Kuthumi and El Morya hiking up a mountain trail.

The archetypal pattern is of the soul on a quest. It is part of every spiritual story that has ever been told. It is this archetypal pattern of the soul that makes our young Americans go to India and, of course, we know that we could all go to India, yet we would not necessarily be there in consciousness.

The first paragraph keys into the etheric body and sets forth the blueprint of the community.

Keep on Keeping On!

25 Oct

keep-on-keeping-on-300x157

The going can be tough on the spiritual path. The higher we aspire, the harder the climb. It’s easy to slip a little now and again, losing momentum; even falling off the rails for a time.

We also have an all-too-human tendency to kick ourselves when we’re down, to harshly judge, even condemn ourselves when we trip and fall. The dark voices of discouragement and despair like nothing more than to remind us how unworthy we are.

But that’s a lie!

It is enlightened self-interest to remind ourselves constantly that we are loved by God unconditionally! So let’s turn the tables on the temptation to believe we don’t measure up and remember two things.

One, we are totally worthy of the reward we seek.

And, two, every stumble, every trip and fall, every momentary departure from the path is an opportunity to learn, to grow and to remember that we can always rely on the ever-present Love and Light of God to sustain us at every point on the path.

So let your motto be to keep on keeping on!

Golden Age Leadership

20 Oct

open-door-leadership-ascended-masters-3

 

When the coming Golden Age dawns, its arrival will be characterized by clear, highly effective leadership modeled after principles espoused by the ascended masters: responsibility, accountability, pro-activity, visualization, discipline, balanced self-renewal, Christ consciousness.

These are leadership qualities we all hope to develop. And as we do, we realize that the first person we must lead is our self! How? By learning and applying the ascended masters’ specific equations of self-mastery.

What does this look like?

Most of us have heard of the legendary Seven Habits of Highly Effective People as formulated by Steven Covey in 1989.

His seven habits actually follow closely the teachings of the ascended masters! And now, in a series of programs, we explore each of these habits including deep, insightful commentary from Elizabeth Clare Prophet.

https://www.voiceamerica.com/episode/94625/how-to-become-an-ascended-master-part-1

BEGIN WITH THE END IN MIND is habit number two from Steven Covey’s 7 Habits of Highly Effective People. This Tuesday, we continue our exploration of Steven Covey’s famous ‘7 habits’ as seen through the lens of the ascended masters’ teachings.

In the course of this series, focused on key principles that form the foundation of self-mastery, we discover that Covey’s principle-centered leadership is very closely akin to the core principles of the teachings of the ascended masters on mastery.

In fact, Elizabeth Clare Prophet elucidates these similarities in typically insightful commentary, which we will share at length throughout this 5-part series.

In respect to the habit formulated as beginning with the end in mind, we will, of course, be emphasizing our ascension as the ‘end’ that we should all keep in mind. This is the goal of life, after all, and a good place to focus our energies and attention.

https://www.voiceamerica.com/episode/95015/how-to-become-an-ascended-master-part-2

Habit number three of the seven habits of effective people as formulated by Steven Covey and viewed through the lens of the teachings of the ascended masters: Put first things first.

How good are we at personal management? How well do we stick to those projects that offer the greatest benefit to us and our pursuits?
We know all too well how easy it is to get distracted and lose focus. Things come up. That’s life. But when we choose to keep our focus on what’s most important, despite distractions, we greatly enhance our ability to succeed and prosper.

Lasting success involves both independent will and discipline. This is true in the business world, and it is true in the realm of spirituality.
Sometimes we must do what we don’t like to do to advance on the path. When we reach that point, simply ask ourselves if we’re victims of circumstance or victors (those who, by free will and effort, overcome circumstances).

Then we act by putting first things first.

https://www.voiceamerica.com/episode/95179/how-to-become-an-ascended-master-part-3

Becoming an ascended master is a realistic goal. Your goal. In fact, believe it or not, becoming an ascended master is your destiny. Right this very minute, you are on a path of self-mastery. Your sights are already set on an immortal horizon, and your eventual victory is all but assured. So, for the moment, set aside any doubts you may have and realize that you would not be reading these words right now or listening to our program if your emerging mastery wasn’t already underway! As this series on becoming an ascended master has unfolded, we have been using Steven Covey’s ‘7 Habits of Highly Effective People’ as the basis and template for bringing ascended master principles into focus. This week, we will look at the power of helping others succeed, being empathetic and understanding as a means of bridging our differences and being open to new perspectives and new ideas. And we will look at all of these qualities through the lens of the ascended masters’ teachings. Tune in to part 4 on Tuesday October 25.

Angel Devas and the National Parks

17 Oct

The Royal Teton Retreat, ancient focus of the coming of the early root races and of the coming of the archangels to earth, is the place enshrined in this day for the children of Israel and the people who have loved the Lord their God with all their hearts and souls and minds to come to the newness of life and the new dispensations of the Spirit that are upon this land that those who are in this land might first be custodians of that Spirit and then couriers of the Spirit who will run with the Word and preach to all of the nations of the earth for a witness unto Him.

We find, then, that the amphitheater of the Royal Teton Retreat that is above the mountain* in the atmosphere at the etheric intensity is filled with lightbearers who, on earth and in America today, are a part of the body of believers who are seeking the Lord God in the churches and not finding him in doctrine or dogma, but finding him in the very living presence of the Christ and of the Holy Spirit. Therefore the opening of the doors to the Royal Teton Retreat to many souls who have implored the Lord God for an understanding in this age has been effected, for the calls of the people are answered and the prayers are heard by the Listening Angel and the many angels who form a part of the retinue of the one whom you call Listening Angel.

We see, then, the spiraling to the center, the very heart center of America on the etheric plane that is the Royal Teton Retreat. This center does not correspond to the physical center of the heart chakra even as your own heart chakra at the etheric plane is not with the alignment of the chakra in the physical plane. You see, then, by the departure from the Law, mankind have gone out of the way and they no longer act in conformity to the inner matrices of energy, but they are apart and impoverished. Nevertheless, this, then, is a retreat in Spirit and Matter to which the souls of the children of God may retreat for succor, for nourishment, and for life.

tetons-devas

There are many of the national parks and the places of refuge upon the North American continent that are ministered to by angel devas who daily make the cycle from the Royal Teton Retreat to anchor there an intensity of the sacred fire until, in these years, one finds that these parks and places of refuge are filled and overfilled by those souls who come during the summer months to be recharged in nature.

Let the children of the light also frequent these places of nature–not only to come and to receive, but to assist in the service of the angel devas. For you see, mankind have brought with them that from which they ought to desire escape. They have brought their auras of contamination, they have brought their television sets, they have brought all of their games and their entertainments and all of those things to which they are accustomed in the cities. They know not to leave these behind; and therefore when the hosts of the Lord come to minister unto them in these secret places of nature, they find that mankind have set up a barrier to the penetration of consciousness.

And therefore, we ask the children of God in the coming months and throughout the summers that are ahead to go to these places of nature to invoke the violet flame that they may be kept as chalices of light and not contaminated. For if mankind do not have this rest and repose in nature, where will they go for the recharging? For many among them have not accelerated consciousness to the point where they can be recharged in the fires of their own heart, as it should be, or in our retreats. And therefore, this is the only surcease from the intensity of the karmic weight that is upon the cities.

I AM Light

14 Oct

 

Light! Let light echo in the chamber of your heart. Light is the essence of your life and your path and your ascension. Apply thyself to the study of light.

Light is the intelligence of the I AM whose geometry, by the power of the Holy Spirit, is manifest as the cross of Alpha and Omega, the Spirit/Matter spheres. I said light, l-i-g-h-t.

you-are-a-sphere-of-light

We seal in the heart of the Word the nucleus of its energy and intent. The study of the Word is the study of the science of creation.

I AM Surya. I AM the light of Sirius. I AM the Sun behind the God Star. I AM the Sun of light. I emit light. You also may emit light if you choose. But the fusion of the heart and the echo of the light within the heart is the science that you must learn.

If you are not a suitable instrument, the light will not pass through. If the light does not pass through you, then you will not be nourished of the light. If you are not nourished of the light, then you cannot be of the light, for the light transforms, creates, re-creates the soul. In order to sustain light, you must be an instrument of light—as water passing through a pipe, so light passing through a vessel. light passing through the vessel keeps the vessel clean and in tune with its origin.

Light, then, is the intelligence of God, the intelligence of God that moves in the cloven tongues of the Holy Ghost and precipitates in the cross of Matter.

All of creation is light. How is it that we say that some are not of the light? Some are not of the light because the light that is in them is darkness. From whence did the darkness come? It has come as a misstatement of light, as a misqualification of light, as the mystification of the science of light.

We, then, stand at the fulcrum of life to deliver pure light, that the pure light which we give may flush out impure light— light made impure by an ungodly matrix…

There is a light that you are not capable of assimilating. It is the light of far-off worlds and cosmic beings. Therefore, that light is stepped down to other ascended beings and angels. And through your mighty I AM Presence, the light of the white-fire sun, that you also are not able to assimilate, is stepped down through the blessed Son, the Mediator, and then passed through your chakras, again stepped down for the assimilation of physical matter and physical cells. Thus, you see, hierarchy as a principle is inherent in the transfer of light… The ascended masters’ teachings are charged with light.

The Stupendous Power of Your Threefold Flame

12 Oct

I speak, then, of your Christhood. I speak of the living Christ within you, and I say: Develop that Christhood. Develop that Holy Christ Flame. Ere I come again to speak to you, I would see your three plumes in greater equilibrium if not completely balanced. When you balance your threefold flame (and that sacred fire of the Divine Mother is the fount of that flame), then you will begin to see the size of your flame increase to one-eighth, one-fourth, one-half inch. And, finally, imagine yourself having increased your threefold flame to the height of an inch!

threefold-flame-power-feature

Well, beloved ones, there is so much cosmic energy in a balanced threefold flame that is even one inch in height that it can generate stupendous power to work change in your life, your family and your community. Truly, you cannot even begin to comprehend what a great God-gift it is.

If you only knew that to maintain it and to increase it is to be in harmony with God and to be a servant of God and to make it your business to be a part of the Great White Brotherhood – if you could only see, beloved, how when you increase the threefold flame, you are given extraordinary empowerment to vastly change situations of global proportions. And the outreach of that threefold flame that is one inch in height may span half the world itself – so stupendous is that power, wisdom and love of Father, Son and Holy Spirit when it is connected with the Divine Mother. Thus, look to and meditate on the fount of the Goddess Kundalini rising from the base of the spine to the crown chakra.

This Is My Hour to Serve with the Legions of the Seven Archangels

In the invincible blessings of the victory of God, I urge you on to a tremendous victory – one with yourself, one with your family and one with God – that you can claim as your own. Thus may you say: “By the grace of God, with my co-workers I have made this happen. By the grace of God, through many, many, many other people who have been working with me in that direction, we have made the difference.”

Know that you are a part of many teams who are in different levels of consciousness – sometimes when you are in the etheric retreats, sometimes when your soul is out of the body at night fighting for the victory of the very souls of your people.

In all areas of service, beloved, remember that it is the threefold flame and the strength of the Atman within you that gives you the masculine strength, the feminine strength and the full power of the T’ai Chi to move, to be determined, to stand, to still stand and not to be moved by anyone, anything or any irritation, including the nitty-gritty problems of life.

This is your power and your empowerment from God. Put aside your baggage and say: “I will tend to that later. This is my hour to serve with the legions of the Seven Archangels. This is my hour to serve my beloved Saint Germain, my beloved El Morya, my beloved Lanello. Yes, this is the time and the place to do this!”

This excerpt continues from the dictation, Protection to the Servants of God, by Archangel Michael and the Seven Archangels published in the 1997 Pearl of Wisdom Vol. 40 No. 24.

Scale the Summit of Identification with Immortality

10 Oct

To know oneself is not always to probe the depths of subconscious memory but to scale the summit of identification with immortality. To preserve one’s shadows is not necessary when facing the light. Leave them behind; for while they lengthen as the sun goes down, they diminish each hour from the rising. Remember the zenith, for then the light of the Presence stands directly overhead. It is the Sun of man’s being, that luminous orb wherein the precious treasures of heaven are deposited, that releases the correct vibratory action into the world of men.

chart of your divine self001

At times even the myopic ones make the best travelers along the perilous pathway. When they arrive upon the mountaintop to encamp, they sometimes do so with discontentment of spirit. Such as these enjoy the climb and the pursuit of virtue more than they do the finding thereof. Men of normal vision are fortunate, for their perspective is blessed with balance. The spinning wheel of life has turned out the nubbed threads*, and the garment cannot be of greater refinement than the thread. When the thread of consciousness is refined, the clean linen can be woven upon the loom.

The wise see our abode as one of Spirit and, in fearlessness, they save their own lives. The worthy masons see in the placing of each brick the shining of celestial spires, raised stone upon stone. Perfidy yawns like a pinching chasm to break the bones; it is the chinks in men’s armor that must be guarded. The whirling follies of others seem as nebbishes** of ridicule to some, while their own creations pass unnoticed. How shall we scale Olympian heights with the spirit of injustice? The herdsman extended a rough arm, clad with homespun cloth, and it was rejected by the climber, who fell upon the rocks of pride.

 

 

light-upon-a-hill

The shining of the pure in heart
Is like a light upon the hill—
It illumines the earth with good will,
It is fragrant like the pine upon the hill,
Whose solitary vigil
Through the lonely hours of each night,
Drinks in the mellow tenderness of each day’s sun,
And calmly awaits the blowing away
Of the covering clouds.

Let us journey on!


*nubbed thread is a rough thread that causes variations in the feel of a fabric, versus a smooth thread.

What’s your next step? Say YES to the violet flame!

Why Would You Need Transformation If Your (Nearly) Perfect?

The purpose of life is to reunite with the heart of God, but the path of reunion is often challenging. That’s because along the way, we must confront and transmute our negative karma, instead of just excusing it for whatever really good reason we’ve been using.

And, as we grow in spiritual wisdom, we realize that we simply don’t know what we don’t know.

No matter what we encounter on our spiritual path, the violet flame is the ultimate tool for illumination, self-mastery…and real progress!

Dear Keepers of the Violet Flame of Freedom,

How to Begin with the Violet Flame?

The violet flame is a high frequency spiritual energy used by the great saints and sages of East and West that cleans up and transmutes negative karma and works wonders healing body, mind and soul!

Use this wondrous spiritual elixir to enhance your health, balance your psychology, improve your finances, heal relationships, restore family unity and help increase the fire of freedom for our planet!

It is the goal of Saint Germain and the ascended masters to provide all seekers with proven, practical tools such as decrees and the violet flame to enhance their spiritual practice and accelerate their progress on their spiritual path.

How Does the Violet Flame Work?

There are three special keys to using the violet flame. First picture the violet light as a living flame. If you have trouble at first, just look as some of the visualizations on the resource page. This exercising of the third eye chakra becomes easier with practice.

Second, let yourself feel the energy of the violet flame. You may feel warmth in your heart, joy, forgiveness, lightness or freedom. This engages your feelings in the creative process.

Third, begin to use the violet flame decrees. These are spoken affirmations. By saying a violet flame decrees out loud, we increase the light in our world by bringing the energy down from Spirit to matter using our chakras.

What People Are Saying About the Violet Flame

“Since I was scientifically oriented, this challenge to experiment with the violet flame was just what I needed…. To my amazement, old habits just melted away with no effort. Without the violet flame, I am sure that quitting those habits would have been a major struggle.”

“I have since found again and again that Saint Germain and all of heaven truly do await our petitions and prayers and calls, and that they are always answered according to God’s will and wisdom if we will just ask and accept it made manifest. Try it!”
