Setting Forth the Blueprint of Community

9 Feb

A Worldwide Antahkarana

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

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

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

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

 

Setting Forth the Blueprint of Community

The Blueprint of Community

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

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

Etheric Retreats

Etheric Retreats of the Ascended Masters

Darjeeling, etheric retreatIn recent eras, few among mankind have entered the etheric retreats and temples of the Great White Brotherhood. The retreats, once physical on the lost continents of Lemuria and Atlantis, were withdrawn to the realms of perfection, the etheric plane, reachable only by the most advanced initiates.

With the dawning of the Aquarian age, however, lightbearers were given again opportunity to enter these retreats just beyond physical awareness. By means of soul travel, you can visit these spiritual retreats while you sleep, as time and space are merely coordinates of infinity.

Universities of the Spirit – Retreats of the Chohans

The chohans of the rays are the closest of the Ascended Masters to humanity. The offices of the chohans are divinely appointed by the cosmic hierarchy. Each one has attained self-mastery and won the ascension by serving humanity on one or more of the seven rays.

On January 1, 1986, Gautama Buddha announced that the seven chohans of the rays had been granted approval by the Lords of Karma to open, “Universities of the Spirit in each of their etheric retreats where they might welcome not dozens or hundreds but thousands and tens of thousands of students who will diligently pursue the path of self-mastery on the seven rays systematically, mastering most especially the first and the seventh rays…”

The Seven Chohans and Their Retreats

Ascended Master El Morya, the chohan of the first ray, maintains his focus of the will of God on the etheric plane concurrent with Darjeeling, India. He is the Chief of the Darjeeling Council, a council of ascended masters of the Great White Brotherhood.

Ascended Master Lord Lanto is the chohan of the second ray, the yellow ray of illumination. He serves in the Royal Teton Retreat, the main retreat of the Great White Brotherhood on the North American continent. He is concerned with the illumination of the youth of the world.

Ascended Master Paul the Venetian is the chohan of the third ray of divine love, the pink flame. He is the hierarch at the Château de Liberté in southern France. He sponsors the ascended master culture for this age and works with all who desire to bring that culture forth on behalf of mankind.

Ascended Master Serapis Bey, chohan of the fourth ray, the great disciplinarian. Serapis Bey maintains the focus of the Ascension Temple at Luxor in Egypt. This is the place where candidates for the ascension are received, and it is considered the most difficult of these retreats to enter. Serapis Bey is the teacher of the path to the ascension.

Ascended Master Hilarion is the chohan of the fifth ray, the green ray of precipitation and truth. He was embodied as the apostle Paul. He maintains the Temple of Truth on the etheric plane near Crete. He works with atheists, agnostics, skeptics and others who have become disillusioned with life and with religion.

Ascended Lady Master Nada is the chohan of the sixth ray of ministration, service and peace. The flame of the sixth ray is purple, the color of violets, flecked with metallic gold and ruby. Nada’s retreat is in the Arabian Desert.

Ascended Master Saint Germain, the chohan of the seventh ray, holds a very important position in hierarchy in this age. The seventh ray is freedom, mercy, transmutation and ritual. Saint Germain is also the hierarch of the Aquarian age. The pulsations of the violet flame can be felt from his retreat over the House of Rakoczy in Transylvania and from the Cave of Symbols in the United States.

The Nature of God- Ascended Masters Perspective

4 Dec

The Father/Mother God

Let’s turn our attention to the ascended masters’ explanation of what God is.  Our first excerpt is from a lecture by Mrs. Prophet called “The Torch Is Passed.” [1] She uses the principle of hierarchy to explain how God manifests throughout cosmos.

In this lecture we will give an outline of hierarchy and of the Great White Brotherhood, because it is important that we understand the order that is heaven’s first law and how that order manifests in the release of light from the central sun all the way down from the coordinates of hierarchy to our point in time and space.

Beginning in the heart of the Great Central Sun, hierarchy manifests as the stepping-down of the energies of Alpha and Omega, of the sacred AUM, of the I AM THAT I AM that is the fiery focal point for the whole of creation, the whole of the cosmos. The Elohim and cosmic beings carry the greatest concentration, the highest vibration of light that we can comprehend in our state of evolution. Alpha and Omega are beings ascended who represent and focus the Father-Mother God in the Great Central Sun. They are the highest expression of twin flames that we know of, and we refer to them as our Father-Mother God. John the Beloved heard them called “the beginning and the ending.” In fact, it was the Lord who spoke, “I AM Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending.”[2] [3]

An additional definition of Alpha and Omega:

The Divine Wholeness of the Father-Mother God affirmed as the “beginning and the ending” by the Lord Christ in Revelation. Ascended twin flames of the Cosmic Christ consciousness who hold the balance of the masculine-feminine polarity of the Godhead in the Great Central Sun of cosmos. Thus, through the Universal Christ, the Word incarnate, the Father is the origin and the Mother is the fulfillment of the cycles of God’s consciousness expressed throughout the Spirit-Matter creation.[4]

Father/Mother God

Thus, at the highest known point of being in the Great Central Sun, we find two ascended beings, twin flames, who focus the consciousness of God for the cosmos in its masculine (Spirit, Father) and feminine (Matter, Mother) polarity.

This statement has tremendous implications for how the masters view divine existence. As ascended beings, Alpha and Omega have passed through the long journey through Matter and back to Spirit. They are part of the creation—and though they have tremendous power, they cannot be the creators of the creation.

The I AM THAT I AM

Ascended masters frequently use another set of names for God, terms derived from the Bible: Lord God Almighty, the Almighty, or Almighty God. These names point to one attribute of God: Possessing all-power.

Just as often, they speak simply about God, the Lord God or the Most High God.

They also express the name of God as the I AM or I AM THAT I AM—the name of God revealed to Moses in the burning bush.

And Moses said unto God, Behold, when I come unto the children of Israel, and shall say unto them, The God of your fathers hath sent me unto you; and they shall say to me, What is his name? what shall I say unto them?
And God said unto Moses, I AM THAT I AM: and he said, Thus shalt thou say unto the children of Israel, I AM hath sent me unto you.[5]

When God revealed himself as the I AM THAT I AM, it was the most compact, self-contained statement of being that could possibly be given. “I AM.” Not, I am this or I am that.  Simply, I AM. I exist, I am what I am, and that is all I will say about it.  “I AM” It is the highest statement of being, not defined by attributes but simply by existence.

There is one other appellation that may help us understand the Supreme God: The Nameless One, also called “the Nameless One from out the Great Central Sun.”  Just like “I AM THAT I AM,” the title “Nameless One” points to a God whose attributes are not revealed to us.

This being once gave a dictation through Elizabeth Clare Prophet and said this:

From out the Great Central Sun I, the Nameless One, do speak to my beloved. I have opened the channels of light. And I am the Nameless One, for to give you a name,[6] beloved, would give you access to my Causal Body.[7] People of earth are not yet ready to access that Causal Body. Therefore I speak out of profound love for your being that once was a God-free being, as I am, but now does perceive out of the windows of a limited self.  (…)
For I am in the white fire core of the Central Sun. I have stepped down my vibration millions of times to speak to you. Thus my voice is the voice of one who knows the science of the creation of worlds. Can you not call upon me for the creation of solutions to these minor and major problems you are facing?

Who is the Nameless One?  Does this term relate to the transcendent Creator God?  This might be so given this sentence in his dictation: “one who knows the science of the creation of worlds.”

A dictation by the Cosmic Being Mighty Victory corroborates this possibility.  Victory said:

Beloved ones, the Four and Twenty Elders are standing in awe of Sanat Kumara, the Ancient of Days, who himself, upon the great white throne, stands and bows before the Nameless One, the Almighty, who bequeathed to him the opportunity for the salvation of earth. The hosts of the Lord and the Cosmic Council have given all that can be given thus far in answer to your calls for the increase of the spin of this earth planet you call home.[8]

Thus, by equating the Nameless One with the Almighty, we may conclude that the term Nameless One refers to the Creator God of the universe. If this is so, the words spoken by the Nameless One are another confirmation that our Creator God is intimately connected and concerned with every aspect of his creation.

Attributes of God

For centuries, mankind had tried to define what God is, by ascribing attributes to God—often human-like, anthropomorphic attributes. Whenever we ascribe an attribute to something, this is simultaneous an act of exclusion or placing limitations on God. If we say God is something—say “compassionate,” we simultaneously say he is not hateful or vengeful or overly just. In other words, we begin to limit our understanding of what God is by ascribing attributes to him.

Yet, we learned from our review of the I AM THAT I AM and the Nameless One that God will not be limited by human thinking and feeling.  He or she or it is what he or she or it is.  It’s important to understand this aspect of the debates about God, so you can accurately represent the ascended masters’ teachings about the true nature of God.

The Triune God

As we continue our search for the nature of God from the I AM THAT I AM and the Father/Mother God, we see that more and more attributes of God are being revealed.

In both the east and the west we find the concept of the threefold nature of God. Hinduism, which recognizes Brahman as the supreme God, characterizes him as consisting of the trinity of Brahma, Vishnu and Shiva—the Creator, Preserver and Destroyer.  Hinduism also recognizes the concept of Shakti, meaning “sacred force” or “empowerment.” Shakti personifies the divine feminine, understood to be the creative force that permeates the universe. She is sometimes referred to as the “Great Divine Mother.”

The Christian religion likewise recognizes a triune nature or three “persons” within the supreme Godhead: that of God the Father (Yahweh), God the Son (Jesus Christ) and God the Holy Spirit. In Catholicism, we see the additional reverence for God as Mother in the person of Mary the Mother, “Mother of God.”

Trinity

Taken as a unit, the Trinity expresses what the masters call the threefold flame, an organizing principle found all through cosmos.

The primary qualities of the threefold flame are Power (the Father aspect), Wisdom (the Son aspect) and Love (the Holy Spirit aspect).

The Four Personalities of God

Adding a new dimension to the concept of the Trinity, we arrive at the notion of a fourfold divinity.

The Ascended Master Saint Germain explained to us the fourfold nature of God, as follows: God has four different “faces;” he manifests through four different “personalities.” These are characteristic of four different ways of how God interacts with the creation. The four personalities are:

  • God the Father: The Impersonal Impersonality
  • God the Son: The Impersonal Personality
  • God the Mother: The Personal Personality
  • God the Holy Spirit: The Personal Impersonality

 

Four Personalities of God

Let’s look at each of the Personalities of God in more detail.

God as Father: The Impersonal Impersonality

The image of God as Father is correlated with the etheric quadrant, the realm of pure ideas and ideals. In the diagram we see that God as Father has the ++ polarity; it is pure Spirit.

What is an Impersonal Impersonality? It is a Law. It is a principle. It is a Spirit. That is why it is written, “God is a Spirit: and they that worship him must worship him in spirit and in truth.”[9] But we need not leave God as a Spirit, as an Impersonal Impersonality, for he did not leave himself as such. The Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld his glory.[10] The only way you can behold an impersonal God is if he will personify an aspect of himself.[11]

Of all the world religions, Judaism and Islam are most clearly centered on God as Father, in his aspect of Lawgiver and director of all life. In the east, Confucianism expresses love for God as Father in a deep respect for law, discipline and tradition.  Buddhism, which does not recognize a personal God, best fits in this category of God as Father because of its striving for unity with the abstract principle of divine existence.

Within Christianity, emphasis on God as Father is found most strongly in traditional, fundamentalist Protestantism.

God as Son: The Impersonal Personality

The image of God as Son is associated with the mental quadrant, the realm of cognition. The Son aspect of God, being born of Father and Mother, is the mediator between the two, the one who is able to communicate both “up” to the Father and “down” to the Mother.  As such, the Son has the mixed polarity, – +, that signifies this intermediary position between Spirit (+) and Matter (–).

And so in the Christed ones and sons and daughters of God, we find revealed a personality that is yet impersonal. The Christ is a personality, a figure, someone we can know, yet who is impersonal to the extent that he dispenses the laws of a cosmos equally among the multitudes, among his followers. He teaches the Law. He does not enter into human relationships or family ties. He remains the teacher—impersonal, yet personal.[12]

Christianity in its totality, being named after Christ the Son, is focused most clearly on the Son aspect of God.

We also find this aspect in Hinduism in the form of the worship of Krishna, the eighth incarnation of Vishnu, who represents the Second or Son aspect of the Hindu Trinity.

God as Mother: The Personal Personality

God as Mother is positioned in the emotional quadrant. Here we find the double negative (– –), meaning the place where God is descended to the deepest point in Matter—and as such becomes very tangible to the creation.

Then God enters the heart of the Mother in Matter, and we experience God as Mother, the most personal person we will ever know, the most intimate relationship we will ever have—the Mother and the child. We get to know God in the nearest, dearest sense of that ever-present Mother, that flame of love omnipresent, very personal. The face we can always see is the face of our mother.[13]

God as Mother shows itself most prominently in Hinduism, in the form an abundance of deities, both masculine and feminine, that play very direct, immediate roles in the lives of the devotees. It’s hard to imagine a more “personal” religious environment.

Within Christianity, it’s the Catholic Church that fully embraced the aspect of God as Mother, in the form of worship of Mary the Mother of Jesus, the Queen of Heaven and Mother of God.

God as Holy Spirit: The Personal Impersonality

In the earth quadrant we find God as the Holy Spirit.  Like the Son, the Holy Spirit has a mixed polarity, but it is the opposite of that of the Son: – +.  Just as Father and Mother are in polarity, the Son and the Holy Spirit are in polarity to each other.

At the line of the Holy Spirit, God becomes a Personal Impersonality, just the reverse of the Impersonal Personality. And the reverse comes as a matter of frequency, as a matter of vibration. The Holy Spirit is a very present yet unseen help. It is the Comforter who comes when the avatar ascends, who teaches us all things. We can almost touch the Holy Spirit, yet not quite. We converse with the Holy Spirit. We feel that presence in each breath we take, and yet it is the unseen one. It is the Personal Impersonality.[14]

Taoism characterizes the divine as the impersonal flow of the Great Tao through the universe. The Tao is the One and the Way. Taoists’ striving is focused on becoming one with that flow of the One. Zoroastrianism reveres God as Fire. In essence, both focus on the Holy Spirit aspect of God.

Within Christianity, Pentecostal movements in particular have embraced this aspect of God as Holy Spirit.

Lords of the Seven Rays: Lord Lanto

26 Sep

Lord Lanto

Lord Lanto, great light of ancient China, now serves as one of America’s foremost savants.  The devotion to word of wisdom and the words of knowledge of this quietly-wise sage and fiery-eyed bodhisattva has truly qualified him to initiate the evolutions of earth in both gifts of the Holy Spirit. Lord of the Second Ray, he is an Ascended Master in whose Presence the sublimity of the Mind of God can be touched and known, by portion, as he teaches the path of Americans–Yes!  a Chinese master teaching Americans the ancient way of the universal Christhood that made the golden age of China great, that comes down from Maitreya, the Coming Buddha who has come. Lord Lanto conducts classes at the Royal Teton Retreat, congruent with the Grand Teton in Wyoming, for it is here in this ancient focus of great Light that the paths of all Seven Chohans are taught and the seven rays of the Elohim and Archangels are enshrined.  The Lords of Karma, Gautama Buddha, and all members of the Great White Brotherhood frequent this gathering place of the Ascended Masters and their disciples while also maintaining the specialized functions of their own private retreats.

1038.tif

A master of sages and philosophers, Lord Lanto teaches us the path of attainment through enlightenment, definition, and dominion in the crown chakra. He gained his mastery while studying under Lord Himalaya, Manu of the Fourth Root Race, who retreat of the Blue Lotus is hidden in the mountains that bear his name.

himalaya golden lord

Electing to use the yellow ray to enfold the hearts of all mankind, Lanto dedicated himself to the perfectionment of the evolutions of this planet through the golden flame of Cosmic Christ illumination he bears, charged with his momentum of God-Victory for the youth of the world. We can trace his evolution as a high priest in the temple of the Divine Mother on the lost continent of Lemuria, which occupied a large area of the Pacific Ocean, as well as subsequent embodiments on Atlantis. Lord Lanto was a ruler in China and a contemporary of Confucius.  Following his ascension, he accepted the office of presiding Master of the Council of the Royal Teton and of the retreat itself in order to bring to the Western world the flame of science, technology, the culture of the Mother and reverence for Life which he and Confucius had sponsored in the Far East.

Lord Lanto was and is a master of the power of precipitation–an alchemical process of drawing forth cosmic light and substance from the Universal and coalescing it into physical form (a predetermined matter matrix) by the science of the spoken Word.  Master of the fiery core of excellence at the heart of Wisdom’s Ray, hence devotee par excellence of the Divine Mother’s white fire lilies. Lanto remains the Guru of the gurus not only of the Chinese, who he desires to assist in once again raising up the flame of illumination, but also all souls who share his love for the golden Sunward path of the Buddhas and bodhisattvas under Sanat Kumara.

Thus, before his ascension Lord Lanto determined that the light from his own heart flame should shine forth physically as living proof to his disciples that the threefold flame, as in the past and coming golden ages, is the Word that is made flesh and that it can be thus expanded and intensified by the priority of the adept.

Threefold flame001

Lanto so adored the Trinity in the tripartite Light of his innermost being that the intense glow of that Divine Spark could actually be seen through his own flesh form emanating a soft golden glow through his chest.

Lords of the seven rays book

The whirling of the mind

must be stilled

The thoughts that arrange

the molecules of the

mirror of consciousness

need the calmness

of a still pool–

That we may be able

to see clearly.

The manifestation of God in Nature are woven in and through the Spirit/Matter cosmos by the Holy Spirit, whose Sons–know as the Lords of the Seven Rays and the Great Lord (Maha Chohan know as the Holy Spirit) their hierarchy–tutor our souls for receptivity midst all-pervasive spiritual graces.  To these Servant-Sons in heaven, graduates of earth’s schoolroom, Jesus introduced us years ago.

The Master Jesus pointed to this teaching on Christ’s Universal Body which he gave to Paul to explain to us that in heaven the same Body which we all share with Lightbearers on earth consists of angels and masterful beings, great spirits akin to our own, ensouling and directing the cosmic forces, all of whom embody some special office and function of the universal activity of the Mind of God.

The Lord showed us his emissaries who teach the godly on earth the path of individual Christhood on the seven rays and the seven chakras (spiritual centers in the body of man)–each ray being a Light-emanation of the Universal Christ concentrating particular gifts and graces and principles of self-awareness in the Logos that can be developed by the disciple through his life’s calling.

He explained with perfect logic that the work of the Great White Brotherhood (ascended beings surround by God’s white light) and all heavenly hosts associated with it, including those whom they sponsor on earth, was and is to nurture the nascent divinity of every child of God while teaching him self-discipline and love for his sacred labor, which love kindles the soul to be in love with her Lord and to desire to glorify the full complement of his Light (Christ consciousness) in all her members.

He showed us that in this cycle of our cosmic history, earth’s evolution transiting from the Piscean to the Aquarian ( which we are now in) ages are scheduled to balance the threefold flame of the heart and to expand the attributes of the Trinity–Power, Wisdom–Love through each of the seven rays as these rays are consciously focused in the seven chakras.

Threefold flame001

This work of the soul–and it is indeed our work, even as we are His handiwork–is the preparation that is necessary prior to receiving the very special spiritual and physical assignment with one’s twin flame–a mission drawn from the higher spheres of their divine plan (casual bodies) which must be fulfilled ere they are allowed to graduate (i.e., ascend) from earth’s schoolroom.

Yes, we can learn, and we would do well to take the opportunity, from the Lords of the Seven Rays, our mentors of the Spirit who lead us on the paths of righteousness for His name’s sake–I AM THAT I AM–towards our soul’s receptivity to the gifts of the Holy Spirit.

In divine order, they are:

1. El Morya, Chief

2. Lord Lanto

3. Paul the Venetian

4. Serapis Bey

5.  Hilarion

6. Lady Master Nada

7. Saint Germain

 

 

 

For the seeker following in the footsteps of these representative of Christ Truth, each step of self-mastery secured on one ray is gain on the other six rays, for the shaft of white light in the center of each ray is the unifier of them all.  This shaft is the Law of the One in manifestation, even as the White fire core of the seven flames and seven spheres corresponding to the seven rays is also their sun center–the unifying Holy Spirit of these Light-emanations of Cosmos itself.

casual body

The Lord of the Ray is therefore one who embodies the consciousness of the Lord–the I AM THAT I AM–who is the Lawgiver of the ray, The Word and Work of the Chohan, i.e., his ‘Path’, are the expressions of the authority he holds in the interpretation of the Law of the ray

Who are the Ascended Masters?

17 Jun

Many people who have been through a near-death experience speak of meeting wondrous beings of light while on the other side.  Although some such as Jesus, were easily identified, others did not reveal their name but simply flowed with love, compassion, teaching and guidance. Who are these masterful beings?  Many of the people you meet in the heaven-world are known as ascended masters.  The ascended masters are our elder brothers and sisters on the spiritual path.  They have graduated from earth’s schoolroom and returned to God. From the heaven-realm they guide and teach mankind.

Many of these masters are familiar to us, having walked among us through the ages–others may be unknown to our outer mind.  Since the dawn of time, these masterful beings have emerged from all races and nationalities, from all walks of life and all religions.  Some of them are ancient beings of light, and their names have long ago become secondary to the flames they bear.

Whatever their origins in the vastness of our Father’s universe they all have something in common. They have balanced their misuse of God’ energy (karma), accomplished their unique mission on earth and ascended back to the heart of God. One and all, they share a common light. These beloved ones form a part of the brotherhood of spiritual beings and angelic hosts known in heaven and on earth as the Great White Brotherhood (white refers to the white light that surrounds the ascended masters and angelic hosts).  They are the spoken of in Revelation 7 as the great multitude of saints “clothed with white robes” who stand before the throne of God.

Among these saints are such well-known adepts as Gautama Buddha, Maitreya, Jesus Christ, Saint Michael the Archangel, Zarathustra, Moses, Melchizedek, Mother Mary, Teresa of Avila, Saint Francis, Saint Germain, Padre Pio and El Morya, to name just a few.  Among their ranks are also unnumbered and unnamed loving hearts, servants of humanity who have returned Home and are a part of the living God forevermore.

The ascended masters are teachers of mankind. They take a loving personal interest in their students and often intercede in their lives in many ways, both seen and unseen.  They teach the path of overcoming victory where the soul can walk the earth with self-mastery, follow in the footsteps of Jesus or Buddha or other great lights, and return to the heaven-world at the conclusion of a lifetime of service.  This is the path of personal Christhood whereby each one can find the way of overcoming.
