God is Wisdom, Tidbits of Wisdom from the Great Divine Source!

23 Apr

Of what value is Wisdom unless It pierce the gloom of error and blaze forth through the limiting density of human consciousness that Holy Compassion which heals the crooked limbs of men’s vanity and enables them to walk the Path of Virtue? Wisdom is not intended to exalt the ego or set brother over brother; Wisdom is not intended to make men masters over other men. Wisdom is, pure and simple, a Beacon pointing the way to the fruits of fulfillment.

Men pursue Wisdom in order to attain advantage, to be thought wise and out of avid curiosity about Life, but the “pure in heart” see Wisdom as a means to find their Great Divine Source. All pursuit of knowledge ought to swallow up lesser aims, else knowledge becomes a canker, eating away the fabric of Selfhood and destroying that which loving Wisdom exists to preserve. In no ivory-towered citadel of self-glorification, but upon bowed knees of humility, the Initiate worships at the mighty Fountain of Theo-Sophia, striving to wash away the dust of the road and experience a baptism of Divine Grace.

As one chosen to conclude the Mighty releases of the Ladies of Heaven speaking in this series of Letters, I wish to close with an affirmation of delight that may be retained by you throughout your life, helping you on to greater understanding and Victory:

Come all who love Life,
Drink deep at Wisdom’s fount;
But let your draught be utilized
In climbing Victory’s mount.

          Come all who love Life,
Seek Holy Wisdom pure;
Let sweet attunement with God alone
Make everyone secure.

          Come, all who love Life
Cast off all vanity;
With hands of gentle grace stretched out
Let every man be Free.

Blessed ones, I do not wish to confuse you but to make this instruction as simple as possible.  Won’t you please try to understand—regardless of how wise you may feel you are or how simple you may think you are—that none of these ideas you hold about yourself are important by contrast to the immaculate idea God holds for you!  Of course you can be affected by your own thoughts about yourself, and (if you let them) the thoughts of others about you can create unhappiness for you.  But, lovely children of eternal youth and loveliness, know always that God’s world is the world of essential power where the dynamic energy of life is continually qualified with the transcending spiral of God’s ever-exalting wisdom.  God’s universe is permeated with the justice of an equal love from the heart of God for all his creation which by law’s perfect balance renders the fullness of himself to each according to his kind and willingness to accept more of his grace.

Remember, blessed ones, the stream of life flows first from the heart of God to the heart of your own Presence made in the immaculate image of the supreme one, and thence passes to your Higher Mental Body or Holy Christ Self into your physical heart where it manifests as a threefold flame of love, wisdom and power!  Unless there is an interruption of this pure energy—which is impossible by cosmic law at inner levels—there can be only constancy in a release of love, wisdom and power into your own worlds!  Do you see, blessed ones?  Yet the cause and core of disease, unhappiness, shadow, pain, jealousy and confusion of mind is ever the stoppage of the wisdom-power-love flame from within out, and a stultification of the flow of light and harmony into your mind and heart.  This can only occur when you succumb to the pressure of the mass thought and feeling of that which is directed at children of Light for the express purpose of stealing their energy to animate human creation!

Let all men live for truth as they see it best, knowing that often their present understanding is in direct conflict with their own former light and that the present light of many people will one day prove to be that in which they will not wish to abide!  May men desire to reach up to God for greater wisdom, even that which transcends time and space and is one with eternal Life and eternal Light!

O Summit of hope . . .

Thou newness of Christ

Show me the way to

Everlasting Life!

I am breathing this prayer for all my children that all in unison may one day soon sit down together at the feet of their Holy Christ Self and say in the peace of full knowledge, knowing themselves also, even as they are known of God, “I AM the way!”

Beloved Mother Mary, Pearls of Wisdom, Vol. 3  No. 25,  June 17, 1960

You will understand that through our service the purity and heights of heaven remain in a state of “all is well,” whereas men on earth are assured that the wisdom of Solomon—which is really the wisdom of God—is ever present to make those right decisions which in the long run present the best hopes to every life and in whose hands all shall find mercy, comfort and a steadfast enfoldment, with increasing victory, increasing compassion, increasing understanding and a life forever more abundantly happy!

Beloved Kuan Yin , Pearls of Wisdom, Vol. 4  No. 24, June 16, 1961

 

I AM the Indestructible One. I appear as the Sun Goddess in and out of time and space. I transcend the generations. I regenerate life by the love-wisdom of my beloved consort, Helios of the Sun.

Beloved ones, you must understand that it is altogether possible for you to live in eternity here and now. Do you have any doubt that your messenger lives in eternity? We do not, for we observe the cycles of the freedom of her movement in and out of the Central Sun—timelessness, spacelessness, and not the awareness of the yesterdays or tomorrows, but always the ever-present mastery. This is the qualification for your own Christhood.

See, then, how the ascended masters set this example and how they have allowed, then, the messenger to embody their consciousness so that you might observe one who moves, in free form, in and out of these cycles and, therefore, perplexes your sense of time and space and therefore lends to you the grace of your yester years and your tomorrows, not as fears, not as the torment of the deep, but as the light that shines in the darkness as a giant beacon of the I AM Presence—the I AM Presence, the Lord of lords and the universe, the universal will, wisdom, power.

Wherever you go, wherever you walk, wherever you speak the Word of God, be the pillar of fire. The pillar of fire has the single attribute of non-attachment. It is the fire enfolding itself. Therefore be the pillar of fire as the sun that shines upon the just and the unjust. Be the energy that releases the sacred trust and moves on, blessed ones—attachment neither to bliss nor to pain, neither to those who compliment nor to those who criticize, but only giving of the immortal fount of God-wisdom, love and power to all.

Wisdom – Simplifying the Complex

22 Apr

 

Wisdom, beloved hearts, is always the simplification of the complex snarls of the sinister force.

When you are burdened by a collection of flowers that are not of the Light and you know not the way to turn because every turn has its limitation, its problems, its vexation of spirit—then, you see, it is the logic of the Serpent that has put you in a corner. And you have said, “No way! No way can I follow the LORD God in purest light and without compromise. There is no way I can extricate myself from this plight without becoming more a part of the human consciousness!”

This is the trap. Blessed hearts, as sure as the animal in the forest is trapped by the hunter, this is the trap laid for the soul of the devotee—the certain belief that whatever the sin, whatever the struggle, whatever the circumstance, there is no way out.

I say, though you were in a cave a mile deep and dark, though you were in the passages inside of the earth—think of any prison house, think of any place physical you know, and I tell you: there is no dungeon from which God himself cannot deliver thee! The deliverance of the Almighty by the angel of the LORD is at hand, and only those who desire not to be delivered remain in bondage.

You ought to assess life. You ought to look at individuals bound by certain conditions and human habits. And you ought to understand that the blind who will not see, do not see; the prisoners who are bound, who will not be free, are not free!

Therefore understand the clear and true call for help, for mercy, for divine pity! And understand the ruse of the fallen ones that calls also for mercy, for pity, for light, and promises any promise you will name if you will just extend your hand another day.

Dear hearts, you must look clearly at these fallen ones who take no accountability for the burden that they place upon you or the earth or the body of God, but ask and ask again and again that you will carry them. They are without the sacred labor! They give nothing, but expect all in return! These ones are a defilement of the divine plan to the hurt of the individual.

Realize that the sign of the overcomer is productivity and fruit—fructifying, multiplying, bearing the seed of righteousness that is sown. Those, then, who give commands—“Go here and go there! Bear my burden! Carry this! Carry that!”—are not the ones who labor alongside of the pilgrims of Life.

Let us know them only by their fruits. And let us have mercy upon God, whose energy is stolen and transferred to those who have not earned it and therefore have no right to it!

I speak in this wise, though you may perhaps be weary of the teaching. Weary not, for if you did not require the reminder, I would not be here! And if you had the attainment that you think you have, you should be speaking and I should be listening!

This timeless wisdom on the simplification of the complex from Padma Sambhava is from his dictation published in the 1982 Pearl of Wisdom®, Vol. 25 No. 20

See God in All

2 Apr

 

I will tell you something. The great Masters of wisdom, such as Morya and Saint Germain and the others, seldom—I say, seldom—appear to students of the light and hardly at all to the masses, because they are aware of the law of karma governing these appearances and most of the students are not.

If you gaze upon the face of any of your contemporaries and you do not see God there, you have desecrated their temple and your own. Did you ever stop to think about that?

If you do not see God in man and in yourself, you are desecrating the temple of the living God. And, as you go up the ladder of attainment, if you take the name of Jesus Christ in vain and you lightly turn against him or against Master Morya or Mother Mary or any of the great ones, named or unnamed, your karma becomes great.

This is the reason behind the Masters’ withdrawal from the appearance world. They withdraw solely because they do not wish to involve you in a karmic sequence, for they know that if you see one of them and reject them or refuse to do what they say, it becomes an even greater karma. Do you see the point?

So they withdraw from the earth, from the visible realm into the spiritual realm. “And a cloud received him out of their sight.” So it is with everyone who is raised from the dead. Do you see, then, what a great deal of depth there is in the teachings, in the banner of Maitreya, the banner of hope, in the banner of the ages?

When people come to hear the Great White Brotherhood’s teachings, they come to see a man. Yet there is far more than the mere man in the teachings; there is the making of the whole man that is you, every one of you. The greatest desecration in all of life is that we do not permit ourselves to properly esteem or love ourselves as the handiwork of God.

“Until Seventy Times Seven”

We are the handiwork of God. Because we dropped a few stitches here and there, the garment may appear to have nubs or holes or be imperfectly woven. This is not so, because in the crucible of experience, in the molding and making of a man, his experiences are practical ones. When they happen to us, we are able to understand what has happened to others. If they had never happened to us, we might not be able to understand another’s reaction.

I do not say that we should do evil that good may come. That is wrong. But in the course of our struggle toward the light, in trying to reach God, if we should make a few mistakes, we ought to allow it in ourselves and in others.

This question was raised, you know, when the Master Jesus was on earth. The apostles asked, because they had a sense of self-righteousness too, “How oft shall my brother sin against me and I forgive him? Seven times, Master?”

They thought that seven was the magic number. Jesus turned to them and said, “I say not unto thee until seven times, but until seventy times seven,” showing the infinity of forgiveness toward us and toward others.

The road to a certain place is no doubt paved with the best of intentions, so that we all from time to time may find ourselves in a lesser state than we would want. No matter how badly we want to attain the kingdom of God within us, it may not materialize just the way we wanted, and oh, we wanted it to be so perfect! It is so perfect, but somehow everyone else seems to realize a little bit more of it than we do.

You Need the Master

So we think in terms of meeting the master. That is, we equate meeting the master with overcoming all things. Well, you see, when you meet the master, you meet him because you need help. That’s the whole thing. A lot of people think that they’re going to meet the master because they’re so perfect, but you meet the master because you need the master.

This excerpt from the lecture, Meeting Your Inner Master, by Mark Prophet was given on December 31, 1971, at the Class of the Solar Light, held in Colorado Springs, Colorado and published in the 2000 Pearls of Wisdom Vol. 43 No. 28. thesummitlighthouse.org
