Temple of Good Will

12 Sep

The Temple of Good Will is the etheric retreat of the master El Morya. It is located in the etheric realm in the foothills of the Himalayas above the city of Darjeeling, India. Magnificent, radiant currents of light pour from his retreat, which also has a physical focus in the hills surrounding the city.

Description

A drawing of the retreat at Darjeeling made under Mark Prophet’s direction                                                 

The etheric retreat is a glistening white building in Moorish architecture, square with minarets at the four corners and a large central flame-shaped dome. The walls are as thick as a medieval castle. The apertures are also flame or dome-shaped, delicately shaded in a pale blue as are the doorways, the apertures atop the minarets, and the carvings that mark the divisions of the four stories of the retreat.

As we enter this headquarters of the inner-world government, on the first floor, we are shown the main auditorium. At the far end is the focus of the diamond heart, ministered unto by the devas and Brothers of the Diamond Heart. On a raised altar there is a pale-blue diamond with a delicate blue flame encompassing the white flame that is visible in the center of the diamond.

The Brothers of the Diamond Heart who serve at this retreat under the master El Morya assist humanity’s endeavors by organizing, developing, directing and implementing the will of God as the foundation for all successful organized movements. Within this main auditorium and the adjoining council rooms, the brothers, in their royal-blue robes of oriental design finished with light blue sashes, meet to discuss the plans of the Brotherhood for the most effective release of the flame of the will of God into the arena of action. Their great love for the will of God emanates the feeling of great compassion for humanity and of concern for their welfare, that they go not astray as they attempt in good faith to carry out the vows they have made at inner levels to further the divine plan and the onward-moving tide of the Father’s will for the coming golden age.

The diamond-shining mind of God is the focus, the very heart, of any endeavor. Thus, these servants of the will of God, through their devotion to the diamond in the Great Hub and its focus here on the altar at Darjeeling, assist the Holy Christ Selves of any group who come together for service in maintaining a focus of that diamond as a magnet that will draw to the group the energies required for the completion of a particular project or community service. These brothers direct the angel ministrants of the flame, the devas and the angels of white fire and blue lightning to go forth with the creative essence of the sacred fire focused here to carry it daily to the many centers of action across the face of the earth.

In rooms adjoining the main auditorium, public servants, world and community leaders and holders of public office are schooled between embodiments and in their finer bodies during sleep. All lifestreams on the first ray come here at one point or another in their embodiments, as well as between embodiments, to renew the charge of Morya’s thrust for a purpose in the world of form and to refresh their own understanding of the intricacies of the will of God in politics, in religion, in business, in finance and in education.

Second floor

On the second floor we are shown the private quarters of our beloved master, his study, libraries and formal meeting rooms for members of the Darjeeling Council. Another great hall is fully equipped to accommodate several hundred ascended and unascended masters who meet frequently to discuss international problems and the means to their solution.

Third floor

We are taken to the third floor where we notice more of the intricate carvings in Indian and Tibetan designs engraved in the white marble. The theme of the blue lotus recurs throughout the halls, whereas in the interior of the master’s quarters we see his favorite flower, the forget-me-not, clustered here and there. We learn that these carvings can be changed at will, for they are engravings of the diamond-shining mind of God, which the brothers of this retreat reflect to a remarkable degree and use as a function of the Christ mind and its ability to precipitate and to heal at will.

As we approach this floor, our hearts are expectant and quickened by the pulsations of the focus of the will of God. The doors to the flame room are opened by our host who bids us enter. Sparkling white walls are contrasted by royal-blue floor and ceiling. The flame of the will of God is adorned in the center of the room by an inlaid design, a cosmic pattern in mosaic, a focus of the divine geometry. The flame has a royal-blue center with deeper and lighter shades flowing without as facets of the will of God.

The third and fourth floors of the retreat have many prayer and meditation rooms. Here, worship is conducted, and special ceremonies are even held upon the roof under the stars where there is also an astronomical observatory.

The Sternness of Morya                                                                             

There are great lessons to be learned on the path of initiation, and they begin even at the very door of Morya’s retreat in Darjeeling. Morya is a very stern guru, and he has an interesting sense of humor. At the entrance to this retreat, he keeps a very gruff chela. This gatekeeper has no appearance whatsoever of mastery or of even being worthy to stand at the gate of the master’s retreat. He speaks gruffly and is not dressed in the best of attire. If those who knock at the door of the retreat have disdain for the gatekeeper, then the master determines that they are not worthy to be received at his retreat.

The master himself addresses the subject of his seeming sternness and of his great love for us:

For a long period of time individuals have intimated to mankind that I, Morya El, am extremely stern. This may be true, in a sense, that I am stern because the first ray in itself represents the will of God. And I ask you, beloved hearts, if I, as the chohan of the first ray, am to flinch from the will of God, then where is the foundation and basis for all that is to follow?

But I tell you that my love is as real and tangible as any of the other chohans of the rays, and they will be the first to witness to its reality and tangibility. If you contact any other master of light, whether you are sleeping or awake in your finer bodies, they will verify the great love. But I know, my chelas, it is not necessary that you ask, for you know, who know the light, that I love you. You know that I have stood beside you when you needed me. And you know that I will continue to do so as long as you revere in your hearts and minds the will of God, even when sometimes you seem to fall short of it.

However, I do not condone falling short of the will of God. I hope that the day will soon come when every one of you will be so firm that nothing can break you or shake you or change you. I await that day. I await the day when you are ready to give your all to the light as we have done.[1]

Welcome to Darjeeling

Morya opens his doors constantly to different lifestreams who desire to come closer to the will of God. He invites you to his retreat where he and the Brothers of the Diamond Heart open their arms and say, “Come to our fireside, warm yourselves upon the sacred fires, partake of our holy communion.”

Morya says:

Gracious ones, as I gaze upon the minarets here at Darjeeling, as I see the gleaming white marble so unlike and yet like the Taj Mahal, as I see our art treasures resplendent in hope of the will of God, how I would share with you some glimpse of all that herein remains as a monumental achievement to the Temple of Good Will. How I would share with you the soft carpets of our retreat. How I would share with you the musical tinkle of our fountain. How I would share with you the pleasant hours by the fireside, contemplating the immortal purpose.

How I would share with you myself and all that God has wrought through me. How I would share with you the love of the shining faces round about our council table. How I would share with you the deliberations of our council. How I would share with you the communion of saints and the communion with heaven. How I would share with you the mighty pillar of good will, the great blue flame that pulsates upon our altar. How I would share with you every gift of good will, this season and eternally.[2]

Saint Germain New Years 1977

31 Dec

Saint Germain large001

Good evening, ladies and gentlemen. Good evening, knights and ladies of the flame. My heart is more than joy-filled this night as I come. I come to see this place filled with the golden glow of candlelight that is within your very own heart. Each one of you now will start a cosmic flame of victory, a cosmic flame of freedom. Here now the will to begin has proven unto me that your way is that way of selflessness, surrender – now to win.

I AM the cleansing action of the sacred fire within you that clears the way for the coming of the Holy Spirit. We are watching the vessels of consciousness of Keepers of the Flame as though you were newborn babes in incubators. We watch you with the watchful eye of the Guru, and only when you become Guru will you know how watchful is that eye of the teacher for the student on the path of righteousness. We watch the Keepers of the Flame throughout the earth. And we nourish and we come and we love and we nourish still. You are our children.

And so I come. I come joyously at the behest of the Lords of Karma and the Darjeeling Council and by your own hearts’ calls to dedicate a new year and a new cycle. And so in preparation for my coming and the address that I would give to you this night, I have reviewed that which I have presented to you on previous occasions in the past year and in previous years. And my review has been of the effects of my dictations upon each individual soul, upon those who have heard my word through the messengers and upon those who have felt the emanation and the radiation of the flame of freedom with my coming.

Surrendering Selfishness

And I have gone to the Darjeeling Council and I have conversed with the ascended masters concerning the effect of the flame of freedom and of the teachings of the seventh-ray masters upon the evolutions of earth. And do you know what Mother Mary has told me? She has told me, as I have also seen from the record, that when I have released the chastisement and the rebuke, when I have sent forth my lectures on selfishness and the sloth of the human consciousness, that this has produced the greatest fruit and the greatest reaction – a positive action for good and for righteousness and for a determined stand – not only among Keepers of the Flame, but among the souls who are attuned to the symphony of the violet ray.

I come once again, then, to denude and to place before the denuded self those spirals of selfishness that have stood in the way of the white-fire coil rising for the adornment of the Mother and the Child within you. I come, then, to poke a few holes through your concepts of yourselves that are less than true, views which you have held which have placed you a little farther along the Path than you in actuality are. For sometimes, you see, students think of themselves as more advanced than they are, and sometimes students think of themselves as being far behind all the rest when they in fact are indeed blest with a consciousness of purity and innocence that is truly the joy of the angels.

Let us then first deal with those who think they are a few steps beyond others on the Path. Let us deal with those, then, who perhaps have been with me and my teachings for a longer number of years than others, or some who feel they have had the association with the ascended masters, or others who feel because they are on in years they are thereby superior to others of lesser years’ duration on this earth.

Well, I speak, then, I speak to you. For as you have been told, the scales of selfishness fall daily from the eyes and from the body temple of those who are pursuing a path of liberation. It must ever be so, beloved ones, that the transcending path of soul liberation must bring to view those aspects of selfishness which you did not view yesterday and which you did not view the day before, but which today have become the very mote in the eye, the eye that would behold the closer view of God.

Advancing Sunward

Threefold flame and galaxyAnd so you see, even in the transcending of the self and the moving across the cosmos by the spirals of all-consuming love, there is that aspect of relativity that comes from the coordinate of the self against the backdrop of infinity. And therefore, the sun, as you behold it, shines a little differently on you today than it did yesterday because you are advancing sunward and therefore seeing other veins of consciousness, other flows and manifestations of the angles of the Mind of God.

Therefore understand that today’s level of perfectionment must be more advanced than yesterday’s and less advanced than that of the morrow. This is not the limitation of time and space or past and present and future, but it is the unfoldment by spirals and by spherical consciousness of your own focalization of cosmic consciousness here in that point of awareness, in that very soul identity that is in the state of becoming more and more and more of God.

Therefore understand that even in the consciousness of the messenger there is a constant reevaluation of life and the priorities of life and those energies which may be invested in the various manifestations of service on earth. That which yesterday might have been an innocent pastime or diversion today seems to her to be absolute selfishness and indulgence.

Understand, then, that in the course of evolution, even the ascended masters find ways and means for acceleration and expansion and an intensification of service. For thereby it is the leaven, the leaven of the consciousness of the Christ that works together in the body of God on earth and in heaven to work a mighty work for God, because each day brings us to a more concentrated and hence consecrated level of absorption in the things of the Spirit as those things of the Spirit apply to the here and now in Matter.

Now do you understand what I have said, beloved ones? [“Yes!”] I thank you. For you see, I would make a very specific application to your own life. I am certain that if you have taken to heart all that has transpired in this class that you will surely see that your life as you lived it in the weeks and months before your coming must now change to a newness of life, a new vibration, a new consciousness. For after all, could you stand in the presence of Omri-Tas and Mighty Victory and live again as you lived before? You must of course put on a greater mantle of awareness, of freedom, and of victory and therefore be reborn. And therefore the rebirth does come daily, precious hearts and precious loved ones.
