A Daily Ritual to the Sun

5 Jun

 

On New Year’s Eve 1994, Gautama Buddha reminded us how important it is to make a daily ritual of facing the Sun of our I AM Presence and the sun of Helios and Vesta.

“Recognize,” said Gautama, “that all sons and daughters of God…have the possibility of meditating upon the Great Central Sun through the Sun of their I AM Presence and the sun of Helios and Vesta. This meditation can produce in you a feeling of intense heat or a glow over the third-eye chakra and surrounding the head as a halo.

“With concentrated visualization daily, you can establish such a strong tie to the Great Central Sun as to make you almost oblivious to the darkness of the earth. You must always put this darkness behind you, and when you invoke your tube of light, visualize the rays of the Great Central Sun streaming down upon you within and without.”

We are going to practice this meditation.

I AM Presence chartFirst of all, center in your heart. In your mind’s eye face the Sun of your I AM Presence above you—your own personal energy source. See the brilliant, intense white light of your I AM Presence, surrounded by the magnificent, pulsating spheres of your Causal Body.

Receive the light of the sun behind the sun in all of its glory, all of its tempered manifestation on behalf of those who dwell on this planetary home. See the circling, many-colored spheres of your Causal Body around the scintillating white light of your I AM Presence.

In the name of Almighty God, we call for the spheres of the five secret rays and the seven colored rays. We call for this action of the sacred fire to pulsate within us for our purification. In the name of the Father, the Son, the Holy Spirit and the Divine Mother, we accept this done this hour in full power, Amen.

Now extend that visualization to Helios and Vesta, our Father-Mother God in the spiritual sun behind our physical sun. See and feel the rays of intense energy from this life-giving source pouring down upon you and making contact with your heart.

Place two fingers of your right hand on your heart. Hold those fingers there and feel the energy regenerating your heart. Let your heart be a receptacle for the action of the sacred fire. Let it be a receptacle for Divine Love. Let it be a receptacle for forgiveness, for all things that must come into balance, for all that we may know or not know about ourselves and our brothers and our sisters and the millions upon the planet who need these light rays from Helios and Vesta.

Now extend that visualization to the Great Central Sun, the supreme energy source in the center of the cosmos. And as you invoke your tube of light, visualize the rays of that Central Sun streaming down upon you, contacting the deepest levels of your being.

Let us give the “Violet Fire and Tube of Light Decree.”

Violet Fire and Tube of Light Decree
by the Ascended Master Saint Germain

O my constant, loving I AM Presence, thou Light of
God above me whose radiance forms a circle of fire before
me to light my way:
I AM faithfully calling to thee to place a great pillar
of Light from my own Mighty I AM God Presence all
around me right now today! Keep it intact through every
passing moment, manifesting as a shimmering shower of
God’s beautiful Light through which nothing human can ever pass.
Into this beautiful electric circle of divinely charged
energy direct a swift upsurge of the violet fire of Freedom’s
forgiving, transmuting flame!

Cause the ever expanding energy of this flame projected
downward into the forcefield of my human energies to completely
change every negative condition into the positive
polarity of my own Great God Self! Let the magic of its
mercy so purify my world with Light that all whom I contact
shall always be blessed with the fragrance of violets from
God’s own heart in memory of the blessed dawning day
when all discord—cause, effect, record, and memory—is
forever changed into the Victory of Light and the peace of
the ascended Jesus Christ.

I AM now constantly accepting the full power and
manifestation of this fiat of Light and calling it into instantaneous
action by my own God-given free will and the power
to accelerate without limit this sacred release of assistance
from God’s own heart until all men are ascended and God-free
in the Light that never, never, never fails!

The Power of Perfect Peace

17 Jan

 

Perfect peace is an armor for the fight. It is a ring-pass-not. O you who are weary of the dumpings of the demons upon your feeling bodies, where there is no rest for the weary—blessed hearts, consign the imperfect ones and their imperfect emanations to the flame.

And make your New Year’s resolution the drawing of the ring-pass-not around the desire body and the whole of being. Make your New Year’s resolution the God-determination not to experience any element of anti-peace.

When messages of gloom and doom, or triumph or tragedy, life or death, are transmitted unto thee—do not allow these to come as injections to change the coloration, the frequency, the vibration of the aura. But simply acknowledge and direct light! light! light! into all activities where those involved have lost the equilibrium of Alpha and Omega and therefore are without peace.

Some of you are thinking that the Lord Christ Jesus came not to send peace but a sword. And I come—and my sword is peace! Thus, together we present East and West. And out of the resolution of the sword of flaming peace and the flaming peace that swallows up the sword, you will understand the active and passive parts of thy being in Spirit and in Matter. Truly the divine complement is one.

Now, blessed hearts, I seal you in the memory of your desire for peace above all other considerations. Do not sell thy peace for paltry gain or some mere pleasure of the human mind or body. Remember there is a higher way and a higher peace. And remember that once I held you in that flame to set the course of Life. And in that hour and in that moment you knew the meaning of readiness for the Lord.

The impetus for the new year does start with winter solstice

21 Dec

In the stillness of the flame of Shamballa I come. I come with my light, like the fabled wand of old. I come with a rod of energy–God’s energy that bursts as a star. And I stand, the Lord of the World, directing the light of the Ancient of Days to all of the children of my heart whose flames beat one with my own. I come from Shamballa, centered in the Royal Teton, yet I AM everywhere in space and I dwell in the heart of time.

Lo, I AM the Buddha and I AM the fulfillment of your heart’s longing for joy. This is indeed the hour of joy, the very bursting of light in each heart, the impetus for the new year that in actuality does start with winter solstice and the lighting of the taper in the heart of the Great Central Sun as Alpha bows to Omega and extends to her the gift of the flame.

And then Omega steps down from her throne and passes the flame to the legions of seraphim who compose the honor guard of the Divine Mother. And the first of the mighty seraphim, the Captain of the Lord’s Hosts, Justinius, does take that taper from Omega to light the second in command. And one by one the tapers are lit until, across the vastness of spacelessness and timelessness, the mighty seraphim wend their way unto the worlds within and the worlds without.

Curious as it might seem given your understanding of the speed of light, the ritual of the fulfillment of the passing of the taper of the new year does not occur on Terra until the hour of the year’s turning. And so the grand ritual of the hours from the Great Central Sun through millions of galaxies manifests on earth in the moment of the appearance of the mighty thoughtform that descends from the heart of God to the heart of Sanat Kumara, thence into my own heart as the adoration to the Cosmic Virgin is sent forth from this planetary orb.

As we receive the impartation of the taper, we return that fire and that love back to Omega, and this is the grand ritual of millions and millions of hosts of light, Buddhas, and consciousnesses one with the Elohim. And therefore, when that focal point of light does reach our heart and we send it back, there is the weaving of the cosmic daisy.

And for each and every one who receives the taper of the Mother in the Central Sun, there is the return current that forms another petal of this cosmic daisy. And the yellow center is indeed the Great Central Sun Magnet, and all of these petals in all dimensions going forth are the action of the flow of the love of the hosts of light for Alpha and Omega and the love that is returned. And this weaving–this weaving of this grand design is for the action, the interaction, and the integration of life flow–as Above, so below.

Do you know, you have spoken of Spirit and of Mater. I desire to tell you something this night concerning the energy of God. It is that as that energy pulsates from Alpha to Omega and to the worlds within and the worlds without, microsecond by microsecond that energy is becoming Matter, becoming Spirit, becoming Matter. You cannot even calculate the fragments of time. They are so infinite, as it were, in their smallness as almost to be not increments at all, but the mighty cosmic flow.

But I desire that you should know that you may elevate and accelerate your consciousness and your vision that the planes of the consciousness of God are not simply two large bands across a cosmos, one of Spirit and one of Matter, but instead there is an infinitude of the bouncing of energy from Spirit to Matter until the entire cosmos is simply one pulsating sphere of God. Suspended in that sphere am I, suspended in that sphere are you. And in that suspension we find that soul, that becoming, that Elohim.

Do you really know when you are on earth and when you are in heaven?  Do you really know when you are Spirit or Matter?  Moment by moment the pulsation of energy from the heart to the farthest periphery is a focalization of intensity. But then all is stillness as the worlds seem to be still, as energy seems to be motionless, and even you seem to be in the stillness of your flame of meditation. In this stillness is a vast movement, a vast cycling of the energy that is God.

Now that I have taught you a lesson, a first lesson in the all-chemistry of God, can you not then take my hand and come with me and skip in and out of planes of consciousness?  Come with me in your finer body this night, in your soul. Come to the Royal Teton Retreat and come to Shamballa, the goal. Can you not see how easy it is to lay aside one vehicle for another, or to accelerate this vehicle to the point of an etheric consciousness?  God will withhold nothing from you.

Enter, then, the sphere of harmony in this beginning of the new year. And may I say to you, to one, to all, “Happy New Year!”  [“Happy New Year!”] Indeed it will be a happy one. The very electrons and atoms and molecules will make merry, for it is the spinning of the wheel, the spinning of the wheel of life, of truth, of the sacred AUM, and the chanting of the AUM. AUM AUM AUM. Om mani padme hum. [chanted]

Schooling the Desire by God-Control

5 Sep

 

Beloved, what can you control in life? The only thing which you can control is the self, for it is not lawful to control any other self, save the parent in God-control of the child entrusted to his care. Beloved, understand well, then, the meaning of the predicament of free will juxtaposed against the backdrop of cosmic and universal, systemic and planetary forces moving in, through, and around the individual.

Beloved ones, it has never been more precarious, hence more important, for the chela of the will of God to be in God-control of his mind and forces and heart and self-knowledge and to be therefore preparing to enter that Gemini Mind of God that is the Alpha and the Omega of the central sun of your Mighty I AM Presence.

It is of cosmic import, O chelas, that you do heed my word as my musings and commentaries upon the scenes of our time pass from me through the Messenger to you. For often, in a moment and in a comment you will find the telling of all that is required to unlock the puzzles of the present and the mysteries of Life.

Inasmuch, then, as it is so that God-control within the individual must set the bounds of his habitation, understand this: that when you remain in God-control of the four lower bodies—of energies of the electronic belt and the karma—and when this God-control is not by human will but by your acquaintance with the Mind of God, then the force of the central sun of being, which is the heart, begins to expand and not undulate but to hold its position as [the central sun of] the auric envelope.

Retaining the Auric Field of Gautama

Pray, then, that thy threefold flame be in balance, that the Mother be in thee, and that thy flight be not in winter. Pray, then, above all things, to retain the auric field of Lord Gautama Buddha, who has lent to you, beloved, not only the thread of contact to his threefold flame but, to the devotees of the will of God, his auric field—the causal body—to be congruent with your own as you so will it and so periodically attune yourselves with those secret rays of his heart. He who is safe in time of planetary tribulation is the one who is sealed in this auric light intensified.

We come, then, for a measure of sanity and a measure of prevention. Let us take out our putty and seal the leaks in the auras of our chelas who invoke so much light—and yet that light sometimes oozes, sometimes drips or spills through pinprick holes or larger rents in the auric field.

Beloved ones, the strength of the auric field is the strength of the electromagnetic field—the latter being more permanent, whereas the aura is more reflective of momentary ups and downs. We, then, come with the putty of blue lightning and the sacred fire to assist you. Our angels, then, mend the energy field and the auric envelope as you are seated in loyalty and devotion in this hour of our coming.

Beloved, you are most beloved. Thus, it is our desire, we of the Darjeeling and Indian and Royal Teton Councils of the Great White Brotherhood with whom you serve, to give you an awareness this day of what it is like to be free of the leaky vessel, to feel yourselves in an auric envelope that has warmth and power and the Presence of God, so that as you move through your day you sense you are in that Presence, [you] do not stray from it, and [you] are abounding in the joy and the knowledge:

My Redeemer liveth.
I AM Who I AM.
I dwell in the Presence of God.
I feel that Love with me always.
And therefore, I know
I shall reach the place and period of my Destiny!
I shall go beyond these years of adversity of the planet!
I shall find myself yet in this body in the New Day!

Maintaining the Harmony of Light You Have Invoked

Beloved, if you do not feel this comforting Presence of God with you always, then I would say you ought to consider having a certain concern regarding your maintenance of the harmony of light you have invoked and regarding dangers on the path of life, whether from invasion of disease or accident or simply from being at the wrong place at the wrong time, which has proven fatal to many in this unleashing of terrorism.

Beloved ones, we come, then, with this Presence of Love. As you feel it from our heart, remember it is not only your I AM Presence and the Holy Christ Self and Holy Spirit with you, but it may very well be the overshadowing of an Ascended Master whom you love, an ascended twin flame, or an angel sent by one of the archangels to assist you.

Rejoice, then, in that comforting Presence and value it as against all commodities and situations and positions in the earth. For there are places in the earth, beloved, where you may wander which are so dark and heavy—many of these not far from you here physically—where this Presence is neutralized by the Darkness only because your God-mastery in that Presence, in the holding of it, is not yet attained. And therefore the Presence rises to a higher electronic field and you are unable to sustain that very Light in the places of Darkness where you may roam, where you may find your employment or other goings and comings to fulfill the necessities of life.

I ask you this week, then, in the name of the First Ray, whose Lord I am, to take the opportunity for self-observation, that you might note when comes the absence of this comforting warmth of the sunlight of your Christhood—what is the cause of it. Go after the cause, be it fear or anxiety or mundane involvements or allowing the world’s energy to enter through excessive access to your lifestream of the media, such as television, et cetera.

Beloved, safety is indeed in the ark of the LORD. Therefore, with all thy getting, get the ark of the LORD. Can you find it? Can you see it? It is the Place Prepared, indeed—the place of your heart, the place of the aura.

Safety in the Great White Brotherhood.

May it be a cloud of witness around you sustained by your heart’s pull and tug on angelic hosts and your love.

Safety in the heart of the threefold flame and the Buddha.

Safety, indeed, in the heart of Christ.

Saint Germain’s Plan for the United States

15 Jul

constitution-national-archives-250

Elizabeth Clare Prophet wrote, “It is America’s destiny to be the Comforter Nation, to fulfill the mandate given through the prophet Isaiah: ‘Comfort ye, comfort ye—comfort ye my people, saith your God.’

Constitution, We the people“Our forefathers founded this nation on the principle of the Comforter. The comfort of the unalienable rights to ‘Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness’ is the opportunity to walk the path of individual Christhood and to enjoy the fruits of one’s sacred labor in the abundant life.

“America is the place set apart from all nations where God’s people were called to raise up an ensign—a sign. That sign is the sign of the I AM Presence, individual Christhood. It foretells the coming of the standard-bearer.

“America, individual by individual and heart by heart, is sent by God to be the standard-bearer of the path of individual Christhood, bringing that path to the nations of the world, to all who would receive us, even as one of the least of these the brethren of the Lord.

“America is the nation sponsored by the Ascended Masters of the Great White Brotherhood who have come because Saint Germain has raised up his standard of freedom on these shores.

“Here, then, in an experiment of freedom we gather. We gather together through the Master/disciple relationship under Jesus Christ and the apostles, Moses and the prophets, Gautama Buddha and the bodhisattvas—all of whom trace their lineage to the Ancient of Days.

“America is destined to bring forth the culture of the Divine Mother that was once on Lemuria and Atlantis and in previous golden-age civilizations. The founding pyramid of her civilization is the path of the soul’s reunion with the Divine Mother.

“The capstone of this pyramid is the highest spiritual teaching of East and West which Gautama Buddha and Jesus Christ taught to their disciples.

“But in order for the capstone to be placed on the pyramid, that lost teaching must be regained and embodied heart by heart through The Lord Our Righteousness, whom we address as our beloved Holy Christ Self.

“On this path of the putting on of the garment of the Lord, the sons of God in America must become the living Word if we are to see the sealing of the capstone of this civilization.

“Through the teachings of the “Chart of Your Divine Self” which unfold the path of individual Christhood (the path of the Bodhisattva), all discover the foundation and the consummation of America’s destiny.

“Saint Germain teaches that Americans are called upon to champion every man’s right to joint-heirship, with Jesus Christ, of the Presence of the Great I AM.

“Under the Master’s sponsorship Americans have a destiny, a dharma, if you will, to bear the flame of liberty, the four sacred freedoms and the example of representative government and free enterprise to the nations of the world.

“They are sent to teach, working side by side with the people, that those who have the right to govern as ‘God’s overmen’ are those who have disciplined themselves before Christ in a sacred labor by which they serve the people and, in the process, balance the threefold flame and transmute personal and planetary karma, thereby earning (by grace) the right to wear the Lord’s mantle (his authority to rule).

“The true representatives of the people in every race and nation are the anointed of God, i.e., ‘the Christed ones,’ who have raised up the light of the Ancient of Days within their temples. These anointed have come to America’s shores to fulfill a soul destiny, and they or their descendants must one day return in spirit or in person to their point of origin to deliver the light of the Goddess of Liberty to their people and their nations.

“Without the freedoms we enjoy in America today, protected by law, secured by Divine Right, there is, there can be, no individual path of soul-testing or initiation unto the soul’s union with God.

“Without the freedom to create with God, the entering in to the Word and Work (the Alpha and Omega) of the Lord, there is no living Spirit of America—and by definition, there are no ‘Americans.’”

Winter Solstice Teaching

28 Dec

Winter Solstice Teachings

 

The following are some of the teachings given by the ascended masters over the years on the spiritual significance and opportunity that winter solstice (northern hemisphere) has for the chela on the path.

Solstice Letters to the Karmic Board

The Lords of Karma meet at the Royal Teton Retreat biannually, at the turn of the year and at summer solstice, to review petitions from unascended mankind and to grant dispensations for their assistance. Traditionally, students of the Ascended Masters write personal petitions to the Karmic Board at winter solstice and on New Year’s Eve and at summer solstice and the Fourth of July, requesting grants of energy, dispensations, and sponsorship for constructive causes, projects and endeavors. The letters are each sealed in an envelope, consecrated at the altar and burned. The angels then carry them to the Royal Teton Retreat, where they are read by the Lords of Karma.

You should begin your letter by calling upon the law of forgiveness for all transgressions of God’s laws, especially of the past year. You may then offer yourself at the altar of God to perform a service or work for him, requesting a dispensation of sponsorship. It is important to resolve to maintain your God-harmony and to fulfill any task to completion for which you request assistance. You may call for divine intercession in your personal life, for the Community of the Holy Spirit, for your nation and government, the world, the solar system, and so forth. As Helios requested, you may offer a portion of your Causal Body as “seed money” for something you desire to see accomplished in the world. But this must be approved by the Lords of Karma; the exact percentage will be determined by your I AM Presence and Holy Christ Self. After completing your letter, consecrate it at your altar and (safely) burn it. You may also want to keep a copy in your Bible for your record and to use in daily decrees for your stated goals.

Kuthumi Pearl of Wisdom Vol. 27 No. 58

Beloved ones, I bring the good tidings of eternal renewal which come forth in the hour calculated as winter solstice from the point of the North, from the heart of the God Star and the center of the Father. Thus, the Light of winter solstice is like unto none other, for its descent leadeth thee in the way of the law of righteousness as exemplified in the Son. Thus, the Father’s Light shines in the Son, and ye are that Son when ye are that sun! Thus, I come to admonish you by the sword of Maitreya to enter into the fire enfolding itself of the mighty heart flame of thy being.

. . .

So, my beloved, pillars in the temple of my God are ye! And the temple must be upheld. This is the half-year cycle of the coming of Helios; therefore, salute Vesta who appears in winter solstice as Helios appears in summer solstice.

Gautama Buddha, Pearl of Wisdom, Vol. 20 No. 23

This is indeed the hour of joy, the very bursting of light in each heart, the impetus for the new year that in actuality does start with winter solstice and the lighting of the taper in the heart of the Great Central Sun as Alpha bows to Omega and extends to her the gift of the flame.

And then Omega steps down from her throne and passes the flame to the legions of seraphim who compose the honor guard of the Divine Mother. And the first of the mighty seraphim, the Captain of the Lord’s Hosts, Justinius, does take that taper from Omega to light the second in command.

And this weaving–this weaving of this grand design is for the action, the interaction, and the integration of life flow–as Above, so below.

Saint Germain, Pearl of Wisdom, Vol. 1 No. 19

The true Christmas story, however, is far more than a mere pageant. It always brings a vibrant, ever-living exaltation of spirit to any and all who will humbly and gratefully take a few moments to fix their attention upon the realization of its symbology; for the Christmas story must one day take place for every one of the presently unascended children of Light of earth. Christmas, and each succeeding celebration of the Christ Mass, is the conscious release of the Christ-nature of and through the supplicant into visible, tangible expression within the heart. Allowing the Christ-self to radiate its full power of masterful Divine Love through the outer form and consciousness (personality), the soul, one with that Christ-self, lifts and raises all it contacts. Thus is the Word, the I AM THAT I AM, become flesh, and thus it does dwell among us!

It is particularly important that you allow this Christ-release, that is most powerfully accessible at winter solstice, to be made manifest in your lives, beloved chelas, even as it is fundamental that by the continuous daily use of the violet transmuting flame you keep on keeping on in the purifying of your worlds until that Holy Christ Self (abiding within the immortal threefold flame of Truth within your beating heart) stands forth visible and tangible to all who look upon you. Then shall you be known by your works, as was the beloved Jesus, and not by words alone. Then shall your outer self become a divine magnet to draw into our light whom you can so mightily assist.

Gautama Buddha- The Eightfold Path and the Chakras

2 May

Gautama Buddha Meditation Teaching copyright TSL.org

 

Elizabeth Clare Prophet discusses The Middle Way of Gautama Buddha.

I would say that in the East we have a tendency toward greater self-mortification and in the West we have a tendency toward greater self-indulgence. We do need the Middle Way.

Gautama taught that this Middle Way leads to six conditions of consciousness. They are insight, wisdom, calmness, higher knowledge, enlightenment and nirvana.

Buddhic line break

The Four Noble Truths of Gautama Buddha

Gautama Buddha proceeded to teach his disciples the Four Noble Truths: First, that life is dukkha, “suffering.” Second, that the cause of this suffering is tanha, “desire” or “craving.” Third, that suffering will cease when the craving that causes it is forsaken and overcome.

This state of liberation through the cessation of suffering leads to nirvana, which means literally extinction or blowing out—the blowing-out of the not self. The Fourth Noble Truth is that the way to this liberation is through living the Noble Eightfold Path, or the Middle Way.

The Eightfold Path of Gautama Buddha

The first step on the Eightfold Path is to have right understanding, or right views. The second is right aspiration, right thought, or right resolve. Third is right speech. Fourth is right action, or right conduct. Fifth is right livelihood. Sixth is right effort. Seventh is right mindfulness, and eighth is right concentration, or right absorption.

These eight points of self-mastery are the endowment of your Holy Christ Self. Know this Holy Christ Self as your Real Self, and know your Real Self as possessing all of these attributes. Know that your Real Self has developed them to the full level of Christ-mastery and adeptship and is waiting for you to receive them.

As you put on these attributes in daily striving and attentiveness to the precepts of the Law, you are putting on the robes of righteousness of your True Self. You are putting on your deathless solar body, which Jesus referred to as the wedding garment. You weave this wedding garment by the practice of these eight right attitudes.

Eight Points of the Law

These eight points of the Law fulfill the seven rays of the seven chakras and the eighth ray and chakra, which is the secret chamber of the heart.

1 – Right Understanding

Heart Chakra wallet cardThe first is right understanding, right viewpoint, right perspective—being centered neither to the left nor the right in relative thinking but being centered in God. This is a quality that is developed through the heart chakra and the third ray, whose color is pink and may intensify to a deep rose. The heart chakra has twelve petals.

We remember the prayer of Solomon: “Give me, O Lord, an understanding heart.” Right understanding, or right views, is described as knowledge of the Four Noble Truths; having views free from superstition or delusion; having penetrating insight into reality, or emptiness. Gautama Buddha said to his disciples: “What, now, Brothers, is Right Understanding?

“When … the disciple understands Evil and understands the Root of Evil; when he understands Good and understands the Root of Good; this is Right Understanding.

“What now … is Evil? Killing … is evil. Stealing is evil. Unlawful sexual intercourse is evil. Lying is evil. Slandering is evil. Using harsh language is evil. Vain talk is evil. Covetousness is evil. Cruelty is evil. Wrong views are evil.

“And what, Brothers, is the root of Evil? Greed is the root of Evil; Anger is the root of Evil; Delusion is the root of Evil.

“And what, Brothers, is the root of Good? Freedom from Greed … freedom from Anger … freedom from Delusion is the root of Good.”

When we think about the conditions of consciousness of greed and anger, we can objectively see them and determine whether they are in us or not.

But when it comes to delusion, we are self-deluded by our own desires, by our own pride and ego.

We are so much a part of the ego and its pride and its desires that we do not know we are in a state of delusion until increment by increment we catch a higher insight and we observe ourselves mounting an inner spiral staircase, if you will, to a point of enlightenment that, if we are observant, we recognize we did not have yesterday. And if we are wise, we will write down the experience and the insight and anchor into it and take another step.

Freedom from self-delusion is a great necessity on the Path. We need to pursue it with all intensity in our prayer and our thought and our daily consideration of the steps we take and what we do.

2 – Right Aspiration

Solar Plexus Chakra wallet cardThe second step of the Eightfold Path is right aspiration, right thought, or right resolve. This point corresponds to the six-petaled seat-of-the-soul chakra, which is the abiding place of the soul. This is the chakra of the seventh ray, the violet ray, which has many shades, from violet-pink to purple.

This is a right attitude that must be had by the soul if the soul is to return to the Christ Self and to the I AM Presence.

The soul’s aspiration must be centered in Godin having right thought, right contemplation upon the law of God and the right resolve to accomplish her mission in life.

This resolution is the use of desire constructively—setting one’s desire, setting one’s sail and moving in that direction consistently, day after day after day.

3 – Right Speech

Throat Chakra wallet cardThe third step of the Eightfold Path is right speech, which relates to the throat chakra. The action of right speech is therefore the right qualification of this ray of power, which is the first ray, the ray of the will of God. The throat chakra has sixteen petals; its color is blue.

With right speech we therefore affirm right desire.

Right speech includes abstaining from lying, slandering, harsh or abusive language, vain talk or idle chatter. Right speech is speech that is kindly, open and truthful.

Gautama said to his disciples,

“What, Brothers, is Right Speech? A man, Brothers, has overcome lying and he abstains from telling falsehood. He speaks the truth, he is devoted to the truth, he adheres to the truth, he is worthy of confidence, is not a deceiver of men…. Thus he brings together those that are at variance; establishes those that are united;… he delights in concord; it is concord that he spreads by his words.

“He has given up harsh language…. He speaks words that are free from rudeness, soothing to the ear, loving, going to the heart, courteous, rejoicing many, elevating many.

“He has overcome vain talk…. He speaks at the right time, speaks in accordance with facts, speaks to the point. He speaks about the Dharma [the law and the teaching] and the Discipline of the Order; his speech is of real value and agrees with its object.

“He bears in mind the injunction which says: ‘In meeting one another, Brothers, there are two things that ought to be adhered to: either conversation about the Truth or holy silence.’

“This, Brothers, is Right Speech.”

4 – Right Action

base of the spine chakraThe fourth step is right action, or right conduct. This is the base-of-the-spine chakra. It is the white ray; the chakra has four petals.  The base-of-the-spine chakra is a physical chakra.

Action and right conduct are the physical out picturing of all that we contain in our heart, in our mind, in our soul, in our desires, in our being.

It is the energy by which life is sustained and life is continued.

5 – Right Livelihood

Seat of the Soul Chakra wallet cardThe fifth step is right livelihood, and it pertains to the solar-plexus chakra, which has ten petals. It is the sixth ray of purple and gold, the ray of service and ministration.

Right livelihood is living honorably by a profession that does not harm any living thing and not choosing an occupation that is not conducive to spiritual progress. It is what we do in life, how we give of ourselves to one another, to society, to our nations.

Right livelihood must be based on right desire, and the solar plexus is the chakra of desire. Wrong desire breeds wrong livelihood.

6 – Right Effort

Third Eye Chakra wallet card Right effort, the sixth step, is established as right focus through the third-eye chakra, which has ninety-six petals. It is the fifth ray, the emerald ray.

By the All-Seeing Eye of God we focus. And as we focus on what our effort will be each day, the direction of our serving and our striving, we must have purity of desire in the inner eye. We must not lust after another, be jealous of another, want what someone else has.

Right effort is based upon a direct relationship with God. Right effort entails right exertion in self-training and self-control. Right effort is following what are called the “four right efforts.”

We must make an effort to “end existing evil.” We must make an effort to “prevent new evil.”

We must make an effort to “cause new virtue.” We must make an effort to “increase existing virtue.”

7 – Right Mindfulness

Crown Chakra wallet cardThe seventh step is right mindfulness. It is the attribute of the thousand-petaled lotus of the crown chakra. This is the second-ray chakra, and its color is yellow.

Right mindfulness is always moving to establish oneself in the Mind of God that was in Christ Jesus that was in Gautama Buddha and all those who have attained that oneness.

It is having an active, watchful mind, an alert mind that tends to details and masters them. Right mindfulness is the captain of one’s ship. The crown must be opened, because when one has illumination and then full enlightenment, one can direct the courses of all of the seven rays.

8 – Right Concentration

secret chamber of the heartThe eighth step is right concentration, or right absorption. This relates to the secret chamber of the heart, an antechamber of the heart chakra. This eight-petaled chakra is the place of the threefold flame.

The secret chamber of the heart is the place where you meet the Master, the Guru, the Lord Gautama Buddha.

Right concentration is upon God and upon the Highest Self and upon the point of Light. It is earnest contemplation on the deep mysteries of Life.

It is mental tranquility and the absence of distraction. Right absorption is the absorption of the mind and of the soul in God and in the Teacher. Without right concentration and absorption, we do not attain the full bonding of our souls to the Christ.

In Buddhist teachings, this eighth step involves meditation and proper breathing, as well as the techniques of Hinduism’s raja yoga (known as “the royal road to reintegration”).

It is a means of finding integration in all of the chakras and in the I AM Presence through direct personal experience of God within by the science of the spoken Word.

Paths of East and West

The teaching on the Eightfold Path is commonly ascribed to Gautama Buddha. In truth, it is the teaching of all of the Gurus who preceded him in the lineage of Sanat Kumara and all who followed him.

It is also the teaching of Jesus Christ. Each one of these steps we can also find in Christian teaching.

The paths that have been evolved in East and West are for the selfsame purpose of placing the hand of the soul in the hand of the Christ Self.

For only thus can the Way be illumined by right knowledge, right aspiration, right speech, right behavior, right livelihood, right effort, right mindfulness and right absorption.

Archangel Uzziel

Archangel Uzziel, Archangel of the Eighth Ray

The Ruby Ray of Integration

Archangel Uzziel and his twin flame are the archangel and archeia of the eighth ray. While the names of the seven archangels are known, the names of the other archangels including those of the five secret rays have not been revealed, except the name of Uzziel on the eighth ray. The name Uzziel means “strength of God.”

Archangel With the Everlasting Gospel

“I AM the angel who flies in the midst of heaven, having the Everlasting Gospel.1 For that gospel, my beloved, is the integration of all of the seven rays of Christhood and of the seven churches and of the world’s religions and of the seven seals of the Book of Life and of the seven seals of the chakras of man and of woman.

“I AM the entering in to the eighth ray whereby East and West are one. I am the one who bears the Everlasting Gospel that the hundred and forty and four thousand might preach it to the men and women and children of the earth.”

Archangel Uzziel assists us to transition from the seven rays to the mastery of the five secret rays. He brings the light of the eighth-ray chakra, the eight-petaled secret chamber of the heart.

Archangel Uzziel and Mastery of the Secret Rays

“I AM Uzziel. I bring to you the transition for your mastery of the five secret rays. Before you pass from the seven to the five, you must come under the rod of the discipline of the eighth-ray masters including the master Gautama Buddha and the Mother. For this is the ray of the Buddhas and the Mothers who come in the name of the Cosmic Virgin.”You wonder why you have had the discipline of the Buddha and the Mother, and sometimes in your exasperation you wonder if that discipline will ever end. Well, it will end when you have passed your tests and become the fulfillment of the discipline itself. And then, in that moment, you may receive your diploma and pass to the school of Mighty Cosmos, who will introduce to you the masters of the five secret rays.”Mankind are yet coming to grips with the seven rays, and therefore you have not heard of the lords of the five secret rays. But in order to contact that level of mastery, you may speak the name of the Ancient of Days, Sanat Kumara, and the seven holy Kumaras. And you may call for the light of the secret rays to come into greater prominence on earth even as you call for your own mastery of the eighth ray.”Your beloved Lanello took his initiation in the eighth ray, after seven years in Colorado Springs, through the ritual of the ascension. Many unascended souls who have perfected the walk in the seven rays do so in this manner. But I appeal to you to strive for the overcoming mastery of the eighth ray and to remain in incarnation, which brings me to my original premise.”Since the eighth ray carries such an intensity of ascension’s fires, in order to sustain the eighth ray and to remain in incarnation, you must expand your heart chakra!

“You must open the heart chakra of America! You must contact the American people with the teaching that will enable them to guard the heart, especially from all dissonance and the popular forms of music that are so very destructive to the heartbeat, as that beat is the echo of the cosmic heart. You must teach the people of this nation to turn off their television sets, to separate themselves from noise and the bombardment of the physical senses, all of which are shocks to the heart and the energies thereof.
Spiritual Protection of the Heart

“And therefore the heart develops that hardness as encrustation, as encasement, as substance of density. Otherwise, it could not withstand the shock even from the cradle. And therefore where the people do not have light, their hearts become surrounded with darkness. And darkness instead of light becomes the defense of the heart chakra. Let them be opened!

“We could send forth the ray this morning, the very heart of the eighth ray, for the shattering of that calcification around the hearts of this people. But what would we accomplish? We would make their hearts naked and without defense. And then they would become so sensitive to the shocks of the world that many would pass from the screen of life.

“And therefore the teaching must come first. Therefore the nucleus must come first. Therefore the violet-flame heart, the purple-fiery heart of Saint Germain, is the dispensation of the God of Freedom in this age. This is why you hear of the Sacred Heart of Mary, the Sacred Heart of Jesus and this purple fiery heart of Saint Germain. It is because this generation of lightbearers have come forth to master the energies of the heart on behalf of all of their brothers and sisters who have such love and yet in ignorance know not what they do as they trample upon the tender laws governing the flow of energy through this sacred center in man and woman.

“You see, then, that although the hosts of light may perform miracles, if mankind cannot sustain the miracle, it is not an economy of cosmic energy. Therefore, the key to the age; therefore, the key to the eighth ray, the teaching, the teaching itself, the dhamma* of the Buddha, the Sermon on the Mount of the Christ, the pondering in the heart of Mary the Mother, the teaching thread by thread and pearl by pearl, law by law—this is the reinforcement of the light of your heart.

“Become, then, devotees of wisdom that you might expand the teaching, become the teaching, and transfer it heart to heart.

“I am Uzziel. My dwelling place on earth is in the secret chamber of the heart of those devotees who have practiced the meditation of the secret chamber and who have cleared the place for my coming. If, then, you would entertain me within your temple, prepare your island in the emerald sea.† Prepare your island, and let me come to worship with thee.”

Freedoms of US Constitution Allow Path of Union With God

30 Jun

 

Elizabeth Clare Prophet wrote, “It is America’s destiny to be the Comforter Nation, to fulfill the mandate given through the prophet Isaiah: ‘Comfort ye, comfort ye—comfort ye my people, saith your God.’

“Our forefathers founded this nation on the principle of the Comforter. The comfort of the unalienable rights to ‘Life, Liberty, and the Pursuit of Happiness’ is the opportunity to walk the path of individual Christhood and to enjoy the fruits of one’s sacred labor in the abundant life.

“America is the place set apart from all nations where God’s people were called to raise up an ensign—a sign. That sign is the sign of the I AM Presence, individual Christhood. It foretells the coming of the standard-bearer.

“America, individual by individual and heart by heart, is sent by God to be the standard-bearer of the path of individual Christhood, bringing that path to the nations of the world, to all who would receive us, even as one of the least of these the brethren of the Lord.

“America is the nation sponsored by the Ascended Masters of the Great White Brotherhood who have come because Saint Germain has raised up his standard of freedom on these shores.

“Here, then, in an experiment of freedom we gather. We gather together through the Master/disciple relationship under Jesus Christ and the apostles, Moses and the prophets, Gautama Buddha and the bodhisattvas—all of whom trace their lineage to the Ancient of Days.

United States Constitution

 

“America is destined to bring forth the culture of the Divine Mother that was once on Lemuria and Atlantis and in previous golden-age civilizations. The founding pyramid of her civilization is the path of the soul’s reunion with the Divine Mother.

“The capstone of this pyramid is the highest spiritual teaching of East and West which Gautama Buddha and Jesus Christ taught to their disciples.

“But in order for the capstone to be placed on the pyramid, that lost teaching must be regained and embodied heart by heart through The Lord Our Righteousness, whom we address as our beloved Holy Christ Self.

“On this path of the putting on of the garment of the Lord, the sons of God in America must become the living Word if we are to see the sealing of the capstone of this civilization.

“Through the teachings of the “Chart of Your Divine Self” which unfold the path of individual Christhood (the path of the bodhisattva), all discover the foundation and the consummation of America’s destiny.

“Saint Germain teaches that Americans are called upon to champion every man’s right to joint-heirship, with Jesus Christ, of the Presence of the Great I AM.

“Under the Master’s sponsorship Americans have a destiny, a dharma, if you will, to bear the flame of liberty, the four sacred freedoms and the example of representative government and free enterprise to the nations of the world.

“They are sent to teach, working side by side with the people, that those who have the right to govern as ‘God’s overmen’ are those who have disciplined themselves before Christ in a sacred labor by which they serve the people and, in the process, balance the threefold flame and transmute personal and planetary karma, thereby earning (by grace) the right to wear the Lord’s mantle (his authority to rule).

“The true representatives of the people in every race and nation are the anointed of God, i.e., ‘the Christed ones,’ who have raised up the light of the Ancient of Days within their temples. These anointed have come to America’s shores to fulfill a soul destiny, and they or their descendants must one day return in spirit or in person to their point of origin to deliver the light of the Goddess of Liberty to their people and their nations.

“Without the freedoms we enjoy in America today, protected by law, secured by Divine Right, there is, there can be, no individual path of soul-testing or initiation unto the soul’s union with God.

“Without the freedom to create with God, the entering in to the Word and Work (the Alpha and Omega) of the Lord, there is no living Spirit of America—and by definition, there are no ‘Americans.’”
