George Washington – His Vision of the American Republic’s Destiny

17 Feb

george-washington-the-prayer-at-valley-forge

 

The story of George Washington’s* recounting of his prophetic vision was originally published by Wesley Bradshaw. Copied from a reprint in the National Tribune, Vol. 4, No. 12, December 1880. First published there in 1859.

The last time I ever saw Anthony Sherman was on the fourth of July, 1859, in Independence Square. He was then ninety-nine years old, and becoming very feeble. But though so old, his dimming eyes rekindled as he gazed upon Independence Hall, which he came to visit once more.

“Let us go into the hall,” he said. “I want to tell you of an incident of Washington’s life—one which no one alive knows of except myself; and, if you live you will before long, see it verified.

“From the opening of the Revolution we experienced all phases of fortune, now good and now ill, one time victorious and another conquered. The darkest period we had, I think, was when Washington after several reverses, retreated to Valley Forge, where he resolved to pass the winter of 1777.

“Ah! I have often seen the tears coursing down our dear commander’s care-worn cheeks, as he would be conversing with a confidential officer about the condition of his poor soldiers.

You have doubtless heard the story of Washington’s going into the thicket to pray. Well, it was not only true, but he used often to pray in secret for aid and comfort from God, the interposition of whose Divine Providence brought us safely through the darkest days of tribulation.

“One day, I remember it well, the chilly winds whistled through the leafless trees, though the sky was cloudless and the sun shone brightly, he remained in his quarters nearly all the afternoon alone.

“When he came out I noticed that his face was a shade paler than usual, and there seemed to be something on his mind of more than ordinary importance. Returning just after dusk, he dispatched an orderly to the quarters of the officer I mention who was presently in attendance.

Son of the Republic, Look and Learn

After a preliminary conversation of about half an hour, Washington, gazing upon his companion with that strange look of dignity which he alone could command, said to the latter:

“‘I do not know whether it is owing to the anxiety of my mind, or what, but this afternoon as I was sitting at this table engaged in preparing a dispatch, something seemed to disturb me. Looking up, I beheld standing opposite me a singularly beautiful female.

‘So astonished was I, for I had given strict orders not to be disturbed that it was some moments before I found language to inquire into the cause of her presence. A second, a third, and even a fourth time did I repeat my question, but received no answer from my mysterious visitor except a slight raising of her eyes. By this time I felt strange sensations spreading through me.

I would have risen but the riveted gaze of the being before me rendered volition impossible. I assayed once more to address her, but my tongue had become useless. Even thought itself had become paralyzed. A new influence, mysterious, potent, irresistible, took possession of me. All I could do was to gaze steadily, vacantly at my unknown visitant.

Gradually the surrounding atmosphere seemed as though becoming filled with sensations, and luminous. Everything about me seemed to rarify, the mysterious visitor herself becoming more airy and yet more distinct to my sight than before. I now began to feel as one dying, or rather to experience the sensations which I have sometimes imagined accompany dissolution.

I did not think, I did not reason, I did not move; all were alike impossible. I was only conscious of gazing fixedly, vacantly at my companion.

Presently I heard a voice saying, “Son of the Republic, look and learn,” while at the same time my visitor extended her arm eastwardly.

I now beheld a heavy white vapor at some distance rising fold upon fold. This gradually dissipated, and I looked upon a strange scene. Before me lay spread out in one vast plain all the countries of the world—Europe, Asia, Africa and America. I saw rolling and tossing between Europe and America the billows of the Atlantic, and between Asia and America lay the Pacific.

“Son of the Republic,” said the same mysterious voice as before, “look and learn.”

At that moment I beheld a dark, shadowy being, like an angel, standing, or rather floating in mid-air, between Europe and America, dipping water out of the ocean in the hollow of each hand, he sprinkled some upon America with his right hand, while with his left hand he cast some on Europe. Immediately a cloud raised from these countries, and joined in mid-ocean. For a while it remained stationary, and then moved slowly westward, until it enveloped America in its murky folds. Sharp flashes of lightning gleamed through it at intervals, and I heard the smothered groans and cries of the American people.

A second time the angel dipped water from the ocean, and sprinkled it out as before. The dark cloud was then drawn back to the ocean, in whose heaving billows it sank from view.

A third time I heard the mysterious voice saying, “Son of the Republic, look and learn,” I cast my eyes upon America and beheld villages and towns and cities springing up one after another until the whole land from the Atlantic to the Pacific was dotted with them. Again, I heard the mysterious voice say, “Son of the Republic, the end of the century cometh, look and learn.”

“‘At this the dark shadowy angel turned his face southward, and from Africa I saw an ill-omened spectre approach our land. It flitted slowly over every town and city of the latter. The inhabitants presently set themselves in battle array against each other.

As I continued looking I saw a bright angel, on whose brow rested a crown of light, on which was traced the word “Union,” bearing the American flag which he placed between the divided nation, and said, “Remember ye are brethren.” Instantly, the inhabitants, casting from them their weapons became friends once more, and united around the National Standard.

“‘And again I heard the mysterious voice saying, “Son of the Republic, look and learn.”

At this the dark, shadowy angel placed a trumpet to his mouth, and blew three distinct blasts; and taking water from the ocean, he sprinkled it upon Europe, Asia and Africa. Then my eyes beheld a fearful scene: from each of these countries arose thick, black clouds that were soon joined into one. And throughout this mass there gleamed a dark red light by which I saw hordes of armed men, who, moving with the cloud, marched by land and sailed by sea to America, which country was enveloped in the volume of cloud. And I dimly saw these vast armies devastate the whole country and burn the villages, towns and cities that I beheld springing up.

As my ears listened to the thundering of the cannon, clashing of swords, and the shouts and cries of millions in mortal combat, I heard again the mysterious voice saying, “Son of the Republic, look and learn.” When the voice had ceased, the dark shadowy angel placed his trumpet once more to his mouth, and blew a long and fearful blast.

“‘Instantly a light as of a thousand suns shone down from above me, and pierced and broke into fragments the dark cloud which enveloped America.

At the same moment the angel upon whose head still shone the word Union, and who bore our national flag in one hand and a sword in the other, descended from the heavens attended by legions of white spirits.

These immediately joined the inhabitants of America, who I perceived were well-nigh overcome, but who immediately taking courage again, closed up their broken ranks and renewed the battle.

Again, amid the fearful noise of the conflict, I heard the mysterious voice saying, “Son of the Republic, look and learn.” As the voice ceased, the shadowy angel for the last time dipped water from the ocean and sprinkled it upon America. Instantly the dark cloud rolled back, together with the armies it had brought, leaving the inhabitants of the land victorious.

“‘Then once more I beheld the villages, towns and cities springing up where I had seen them before, while the bright angel, planting the azure standard he had brought in the midst of them, cried with a loud voice: “While the stars remain, and the heavens send down dew upon the earth, so long shall the Union last.” And taking from his brow the crown on which blazoned the word “Union,” he placed it upon the Standard while the people, kneeling down, said, “Amen.”

“‘The scene instantly began to fade and dissolve, and I at last saw nothing but the rising, curling vapor I at first beheld.

This also disappearing, I found myself once more gazing upon the mysterious visitor, who, in the same voice I had heard before, said, “Son of the Republic, what you have seen is thus interpreted:

Three great perils will come upon the Republic. The most fearful is the third (The comment on his word ‘third’ is: “The help against the THIRD peril comes in the shape of Divine Assistance. Apparently the Second Advent)…. passing which the whole world united shall not prevail against her. Let every child of the Republic learn to live for his God, his land and Union.”

With these words the vision vanished, and I started from my seat and felt that I had seen a vision wherein had been shown to me the birth, progress, and destiny of the United States.’

“Such, my friends,” concluded the venerable narrator, “were the words I heard from Washington’s own lips, and America will do well to profit by them.”

I Believe in the United States of America

15 Feb

How do I tell you who are non-Jews that you are inheritors of the seed of Abraham and Isaac and Jacob?

I tell you that that seed is the everlasting light and that its descent is by the law of reincarnation. That seed has gone forth. That seed, the souls of this people, are embodied in every group and race.

This nation America is the New Jerusalem. It is Israel come again. It is the promised land—and Bible prophecy clearly defines it.

We have an entire nation of people who do not know they are the inheritors of the light of Reality. They do not know what is the United States of America.

We have to know our divine inheritance and to claim it as one people—not divided by religion or race but one because we have a common light.

I believe in the United States of America as this land which Sanat Kumara swore unto our fathers.

When I have that belief, what does it give me?—absolute certainty based on divine law that this is a land intended to be raised up, the place of the coming of THE LORD OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS and ultimately the woman clothed with the sun and the divine Manchild as that Christ consciousness in all of the people.

 

Therefore upon faith in Almighty God, I believe this nation can be saved, that its people are destined to be saved, that they can be delivered from the yoke of drugs and rock and Communism and forgetfulness of who they are and all of their many diversions because it is written, because it is prophecy, because the Holy Spirit says so! That’s why I believe.

 

Why do you believe and what do you believe in?

Our Founding Fathers understood that principle when they used the symbology of the promised land, the City Foursquare, in the Great Seal of the United States.

They were initiates. They were Masons. They had handed down to them the inner mysteries all the way down from Solomon and beyond—the great wisdom of the inner definition of this people, this peculiar people, who would gather. And this is why they came, and this is why they were determined. This is why they fought a war and won.

And this is why they placed within the Great Seal of the United States keys and clues to who and what we are, so that in the days of our forgetfulness we would be reminded.

The seal bears the unmistakable imprint of the mystery schools which guarded and transmitted the inner teachings throughout history—not only the Masons but the Knights Templars, the guilds, the Rosicrucians.

flag_of_the_president_of_the_united_states_of_america-svg-seal

And the symbology itself in the Great Seal is of Masonic origin. The great eagle on the front and the pyramid on the back, the mottoes and numerous numerological symbols reflect the work of those who designed the seal.

So what does it tell us about America?

The divine Manchild of America’s awareness as a nation is symbolized in the front of the seal. It is the eagle, the ancient symbol of spiritual vision. We came to give the evolutions of earth the vision of their I AM Presence and their Christ Self and to restore to them devotion to the threefold flame which they had lost.

The Visitation of the Heart

14 Feb

heart-threefold-flame-earth

 

Therefore take heart, and realize the meaning of that word. Take the heart of your Mighty I AM Presence and Christ Self and of each one of us so dedicated and become that magnificent heart of Light!

Blessed ones, we advocate the fiery heart! We advocate fiery, burning hearts pressing out Love—Love that transmutes in the way all anti-Love. And surely there is no greater anti-Love than the misuse of the nucleus of the atom of Self, even of the Light of Alpha and Omega, for nuclear destruction. Surely there is no greater Love than the Holy Spirit itself come as the Destroyer to consume all unlike itself.

In the hands of God the sacred fire of the atom may lawfully destroy all that is not truly of Life, but in the hands of lesser individuals that destruction may very well be the destruction of souls and civilizations unlawfully and not in keeping with the will of God. Thus, let there be an intense fire pressing out by the petals of the heart that which would by malintent destroy the hearts of God’s people.

Protect the Fire of the Heart

At all costs, let us protect the fire of the heart, the threefold flame, the soul becoming one with that fire! This is the opportunity of Life granted unto life upon earth. Let us consume all Death! Let us consume War and the implements of War, not by the solutions of the intellect which have never worked and never will, but let us consume that, all of that, by the fire of the heart.

Measure for measure, I tell you, if there be the pressing out of the fire of love of your heart, heaven tells that there will also be a pressing in from heaven upon this planetary body of the Love of all of the members of the Great White Brotherhood, all of the angels of Light pressing in upon the earth, pressing out from heart centers and even the sun of even pressure.

There can be, then, a band of containment and God-control by the conscious cooperation of members ascended and unascended of the Great White Brotherhood and of elemental life which promises to be the agency of the Holy Spirit mediating the flow of Love twixt the Hierarchy ascended and the devotees unascended.

Let us establish the cult of the heart and the path of the Ruby Ray rose of Light. Let us do it in Saint Germain’s name! Let us do it for the anchoring of Shamballa once again!

I AM the Light of the Heart Mantra

I come, then, with the assurance of Saint Germain that all of the Great White Brotherhood will confirm and recite with you:

I AM the Light of the Heart
Shining in the darkness of being
And changing all into the golden treasury
Of the Mind of Christ.

Each and every Ascended Master and angel of Light promises that as you affirm that will to be Love in all of the manifestations of thy creation everywhere, past, present, and future, so there will be the multiplication of this mantra of Saint Germain:

I AM projecting my Love
Out into the world
To erase all errors and
To break down all barriers.

Blessed hearts, can you not hear the rustling of wings, the sounds of tender cherubic voices, majestic seraphim, Cosmic Beings, Elohim who have intoned this mantra of the heart of the God of Freedom to the earth for aeons? Can you not hear yourself a part of one grand company of hosts of Light declaring,

I AM the power of infinite Love,
Amplifying itself—

O the amplification of that infinite Love throughout all the world, worlds without end! O the amplification of that Love! Truly,

I AM the power of infinite Love,
Amplifying itself
Until it is victorious,
World without end …world without end!

And truly, as the sound of many voices, so will there be a resounding roar! This is a key, a dispensation come this very day from the heart of Saint Germain as a part of that dispensation received by him in the Central Sun, as he would also lay it at the feet of Gautama Buddha.

Therefore, for the implementation of Buddhic Love and Buddhic Light, the universality of Christus, we of the ascended hosts converge at the altar of your heart. And the fire burning there will increase if you will allow it, if you will not doubt it, if you will fear not to surrender unto the greater Love of thy life.

O blessed hearts, surrender into the arms of the Divine Mother and live at the point of Light of Buddhic adoration, Buddhic initiation, now and forever, spiral upon spiral of being, worlds without end.

The World Needs to Be Loved and to Love in Return

10 Feb

1007.tif

There is no need for men and women to fear the world of the ascended masters or the so-called heaven world.  Does the incoming babe, the little child—whose starry eye and cheery gurgle tug at each mother’s heart—speak of regret for the journey into manifestation?  The return to that cloud-capped realm where dwell the good and the beautiful made perfect in love, when it occurs at God’s appointed time, should never be feared; for did not Jesus say, “I go to prepare a place for you…that where I am, there ye may be also.” And is there anyone who loveth the Father who does not relish the opportunity to be “with him in paradise” even as the privilege of overcoming in the world of form is in itself an ennobling experience–fraught with danger, yet crowned with victory?

My surety to you all, then, is that the love of the heavenly Father, as we know it, is a passion of indescribable wonder, and the divine romance a more transcendent love than anyone could ever know in any other sphere in which he might dwell.  The world of form is a place of testing and trial where principles are put to work and brought to life, where souls are developed and fashioned in their Creator’s design.  Here the kingdom that God saw in heart and mind for the people of each inhabited globe is developed by the children of the sun as they toil with the bonds of purest love to effect their release from all density.  By the cosmic principle of transmutative love, these act as handmaids and servants of the Lord to enfold the world in the swaddling garments of its heavenly infancy as it prepares to shed the blessing of progress upon the cornucopia of a future where God is, where man is, where life, triumphant life, is the passion of the free.

Every angel, every cosmic being, every spark from the sun of infinity strives to express the best that he can at a given moment.  Men and women in their ministrations must learn to be gentle with the unfolding flowers that God has entrusted to their care.  They must recognize the tumbling burrs driven by the wind, with their sharp and piercing thorns, for what they are—abortions of the Father’s love that will one day cease to express thus and will, perchance, become instead a thornless rose, a lily of the valley, a calla lily, or even a forget-me-not.

The splendor of heavenly manifestation shining behind the dense structuring of the physical octave can be invoked all around you and most especially in the very being of man.  As you teach the children of mankind to know more of heaven’s offering, let your instruction have as its primary goal the freeing of the mind from its feelings of involvement with the densities of man’s individual nature.  When that nature called for individuality and God filled the cup of self, the cup of clay, with the water of life, it seemed as though the ocean had parted the cup and as though the little clay vessel could no longer experience the dancing of the sun upon the whole ocean of being.  Consciousness was confused by boundaries it had not previously known, and these boundaries in turn took shape with the ebb and flow of the tides of individual self-hood.

It is really so simple a thing to learn to fling the consciousness out into the world.  But, blessed ones, you must also learn to hold the tethers of retainment to self lest you become a dancing, whimsical bit of fluff that tumbles without meaning over the rolling terrain of the world.  All that you do must be for service, for purpose, for the expression of the divine nature within.  And therefore, the safety of cosmic expansion must afford you the opportunity of understanding the need to go and the need to come—the need to go into the world that you may understand the world, to mingle that you may serve, and then to return that you may garner strength for another pouring forth of self in service.

The mission of my predecessor as chohan of this ray (the sixth ray of ministration and service), your own beloved Jesus, remains unto the present hour.  He is responsive to calls for assistance from the children of men, and his ear is attuned to their cries, as it always has been.  When I was offered this post as he assumed that of World Teacher jointly with your beloved Kuthumi (Saint Francis) [1956], it was a beautiful, overwhelming opportunity.  In our realm, although we may flinch momentarily from new cosmic offerings, we dare not refuse the opportunity to serve.

When you need me, therefore, and you need the understanding of my love, as it is the expression of God’s love in its great outreach to foster a sense of universal development, call upon me; for I am devoted to the world need to be loved and to love in return.  This is not an empty love but an active love that participates in the unfolding of every flower of immortal opportunity to the sons of men.  It is a passion that cuts the cords of ignorance that bind men and women to the round of the senses while throwing around their necks leis of infinite love that will bind them tighter than ever to real purposes, to cosmic friendships, to contacts that live eternally, to acts that endure, and to purity that enshrines.

What more can I say than what I have already said, for greater by far than words in printed or spoken form are the active motions of my being as the God within me reaches out to contact the God within you, to tell you of the wonderful, miraculous, clarifying presence of the Holy Spirit that lives right where you are, to teach you the way to go, to encourage you to accept the righteous promptings of your conscience, and to develop the expansion of your consciousness.

lady-nada1-1230x400

Truly, “as a rose unfolding fair wafts her fragrance on the air,” you can pour forth devotion to God—everywhere, one with the cosmic ocean.  In all whom you meet the spark lives.  And when in you it lives to give more of itself, life illustriously expands its golden-age consciousness of the immortal rose that the soul of God is.

The Matrix of Universal Love

8 Feb

chakra-diamondheart

 

We come to the subject of matrices. Just as Mater signifies Matter and the substance of the creation in the formed state, so do matrices, the molds of creation, reproduce in the world of Matter-form the designs impressed upon them by their creator man. The matrix of love is the matrix God has placed as the foundation of Cosmos and all that is contained therein. If man would derive the intended benefit from this original matrix, he must identify with the pulsations of love in nature and re-attune the frequency of his consciousness in order to extract from the universe the essence of the Lord’s Spirit that is locked in the matrix of love.

“Though I understand all mysteries and all knowledge,” wrote Saint Paul to the church at Corinth, “and have not charity [love], I am become as sounding brass, or a tinkling cymbal… Charity vaunteth not itself, is not puffed up,” <1> he observed. But the proud talkers in every age say, “See me, here am I,” without ever becoming instruments for the magnificent gifts of love which God has placed in nature, in Matter, and, I might add, in man.

Matrices are important. Nowhere is this more evident than in mass production, where the demands are such that out of an original mold an assembly line of endless articles must be manufactured–all exactly alike. Now there are matrices of thought and there are matrices of feeling. Those which are perfect are from Above; those which are imperfect are from below. The latter are mass-produced by mankind out of the almost infinite variety of concepts, precepts, and diverse feelings which they hold about persons, places, conditions, and things. The effect of these matrices upon his life, his environment, and his future is seldom fully realized by man.

Perhaps it would be clearer for some if I were to refer to matrices as patterns, for this is exactly what they are. Patterns that are pure may be defined as those which faithfully duplicate the blueprint of some aspect of the creation; these originate in the Mind of God and are re-created in the consciousness of the undefiled among His children. Patterns that are impure are defined as those which do not faithfully reproduce the archetypes of the Creator’s thought; these originate in minds unperfected by the Mind which was in Christ Jesus. <2>  It can be said that some of each–the pure and the impure–occupy the consciousness of unascended man…

Now there are patterns in the subconscious as well as the conscious mind of man just as there are ideas both latent and active in the Universal Mind. Many ideas of which man is momentarily or fragmentary conscious descend into the realm of the subconscious, where, forgotten, they lie as dormant seeds until the release of energy into the mold produces for good or for ill after its kind.

It is a strange mystery, the mystery of Life. Akin to the mystery of Love, it is not understood by the average man or woman, who have not beheld either the purpose of Life or the purpose of Love. Let us consider, then, that the plan of Universal Love, in conveying the mystery of Life to each individual ideation of God, is to enable the individual to respond of his own accord to the vibratory qualities of love found in the first magnificent gift of God–the only begotten Son, the Universal Christ.

Yet the Universal Christ is not understood until it becomes personified in one such as the Lord Jesus. To some the universal aspect of the Christ seems remote and impersonal because they find it easier to identify with the embodiment of a principle than with the principle itself–with a person than with a pattern; for this they can relate to their own personality. In reality, this lack of understanding, this limited perspective, prevents them from seeing the universal nature of the man Jesus–the manifestation of the Universal Christ. For he who perfectly embodies the universal and impersonal God becomes that which he is the embodiment of.

Therefore, if we have eyes to see and ears to hear, if we have the pure patterns already fixed in mind and heart, we will find in Jesus not only the personal Christ but also the impersonal God–not only the individual Christ but also the universal image of the Son of God. Seeing only the personal, man is deprived of the universal; thus he can know God only in part until he corrects his vision and his logic with perfected matrices. The personal image, although more relevant to the evolving monad at a certain stage of soul development, can express but a portion of the universal image…

As he enters into the realization of his creative potential, man must develop the sense of limitless being, the sense of the abundant Life. He must replace the treacherous spirit of competition, which seized the heart of Cain and still dominates the mass consciousness, with the all-pervading sense of the abundant Love. Love has created him; he is made in the image of Love. Love will sustain him; Love will guide him every step of the way; Love will produce in him the regeneration of the Christ; and all of Heaven will bow to the Light within him because he has enthroned the Christ within his heart and developed an inner rapport with the universal Presence of Love

Is this not the loveliest valentine that any man or woman could receive–the realization that the flame within his heart is one with the Flame in the Heart of God; that his feelings are regenerating the patterns of the Ancient of Days; that his mind, imbued with the matrices of the Christ, is thinking the thoughts that beat in rhythm with the Heart of Universal Love, the Mind of Universal Love, and the Being of Universal Love!

The Essence of Love

6 Feb

saint-germain-and-threefold-flame

Precious Seekers for your own Freedom, know that the full Power of the three-times-three is released in the mighty stream of Love that issues forth from God’s Heart and, filling the Universe with abundant Joy, flows forth into thine own Heart. This is the Cosmic Fount of Pure Love and It springs up as the crowning Radiance of each manifestation—of Nature, of the Angelic Host and of Man.

It is to this Love of God that We must pay tribute whenever we enjoy the full floral fragrances of the many manifestations of natural beauty nodding in the sunlight and fresh air. This Love is also the motivating Power behind all Angelic action. Therefore, those who would draw very close to the Angelic Host, that they might receive their Protection, Radiance and Blessing, will be most wise to keep harmonious at all times and to shun all forms of human discord.

That Love, which is the greatest Love found in Man, is the Love which lays down its own life daily to keep the well-being of its friend. What greater Service can be rendered to Life than simply to manifest Love? Remember that true Love is the Great Magnet that draws forth the Power of God’s Heart, charged with His Holy Wisdom. The secret of the evocation of Power, then, really lies within the Heart of Love. And it must be acknowledged that those men and women of the First Ray who so successfully invoke Power do so through turning to the Great Power of Love and drawing thereupon from the Power of God.

Unfortunately, some among mankind—surely through ignorance—seek to find a flaw in Our Thoughts and Our released Ideas. Now, the human mind can be very tricky and stubborn. If individuals determine that they are going to find a flaw or contradiction in Our Words, be assured that they will. I regret that such are moved by their own ignorance and desire for self-righteousness but I cannot be moved to undue concern for them. One day they will humbly seek Truth.

However, I am concerned for the sincere and would therefore mention the law of opposites, i.e. thesis and antithesis; for some who consider an Ascended-Master postulation or thesis do not take this law into account nor understand that in the great balance of God’s Wisdom and Love of Wisdom there is always the necessary manifestation of antithesis to be reckoned with. This law functions in the human reasoning process and, when it comes “full circle” in the individual’ s experience, supports Truth and exposes error. The seekers for fallacy can always find a false answer in the very system of human logic which will support or justify their own ends according to the premise taken, but Divine Truth stands as a Sun of Love to melt the most brittle and frigid human concepts.

Just as there is a positive pole, so there is a negative pole of the same quality. For example, the opposite pole of pure Love is hate and, as I have often said, even mild dislike is a form of hate. This is so because true Love is always pure and does not contain within it the adulteration of any form of hate; true Love is always understanding, yet not necessarily always understood! From a Heart of true Love then, the words, “Father, forgive them; for they know not what they do” (Luke 23:34) are easily uttered.

Words of criticism and condemnation; words of judgment and words of malintent, do not spontaneously spring forth from a Heart accustomed to attunement with God’s Mighty Flame of Love. As has been well said, “He that loveth not his brother, whom he hath seen, how can he love God whom he hath not seen?” (I John 4:20) And this maxim still speaks Truth when it is reversed to read, “If you do not see God and sense His Love you cannot truly love your brother.” For the true Love of the Universe is always drawn forth from God’s Heart, which is the great Source of Truth, Life, and every benign Quality.

I would like to say here that inasmuch as there is no other Source for Love but God, and as so many have for so long been “absent from the Lord,” many do not yet have the means within themselves to understand that which they do not already possess. Now, if any find that he cannot summon Love for his brethren, or compassion for the world and its problems, let him reckon, then, that this indexes a state of dryness within himself, which needs to be infused with Eternal Love by a mighty Invocation. As the Christ spake, “Cast thy net upon the right side of the boat and ye shall find” (John 21:6), so, then, let all who would manifest more Love, but who do not feel Its mighty pulsations and cannot seem to successfully invoke It toward all Life upon Earth, recognize their need for greater attunement. This indicates a very serious deficiency which is not to be taken lightly. Unless you continually invoke Love and expand It within your world, there is a great tendency to shrivel up the other aspects of the Threefold Flame which you are already manifesting,

I cannot honestly say that I marvel to witness the number of spiritual seekers who desire to have Power over themselves and also over other parts of Life and yet who seem to ignore the vital need to express Love. Remember that the Unfed Flame which is the fullness of the manifestation of the tripartite Flame of Love, Wisdom and Power must be totally invoked. Any partial manifestation does not generate the complete Freedom-cutting action of the Unfed Flame, which so completely expands God’ s Kingdom within the seeker.

B. Divine Love

Let us then define Love. As the worlds were framed by Love, Love is both sagacious and potent; for each part of the Unfed Flame is complementary to every other part and to the whole. But, Love in Essence is the very inner Being of God. It is, therefore, the Holy Spirit in action! Every one who loves, then, is born of the Spirit. And it can well be said they who do not love have not yet come unto Life.

Love is penetrative and expansive; Love is enfolding and transmutative; Love is Patience and Understanding; Love is Wisdom and Strength. Love is Virtue and Purity. Love is Dedication and Constancy. Love is the combination of all of the Qualities of God, and yet there is added thereto an ingredient not yet wholly known to Man and one which We cannot wholly define here for many reasons, except to say that the Fullness of Love is the very secret of Life!
