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!

A New Perception of Your Mighty I AM Presence

5 Feb

 

I would like to speak to you about the thought form that is in our poster for this retreat, the Sine Wave to the Sun. You might say that this is a different way of showing the Mighty I AM Presence, the Christ Self, and the individual who is ascending to God. You might also say that this sine wave is a ladder of light.

You can see the concentric rings in a dimension of the attitude of the soul climbing, or accelerating, the intensity of light and entering into the successive rings going into the Central Sun, which is the I AM Presence. And here it is depicted as an infinite galaxy of light.

If you can imagine the center of your Mighty I AM Presence as an infinite galaxy of light, you begin to think about a new perception of the Infinite One and the manifestation we have become so accustomed to meditating upon in the chart of the I AM Presence. This would be the individual, as you, clearly manifest as a ray of light coalesced in this dimension. The white fire in the center and the galaxy in the heart denotes the Christ Presence.

Many times we hear people ask, “Who is my Christ Self? Is it myself? Is it someone else? Is it someone with whom I can speak? Is it an energy? Is it a consciousness?” It is all of these things, depending upon your own positioning both on the outside of the sine wave–following it and becoming the sine wave–or being in the center of it, poised in that very perfect point of Cosmic Christ consciousness which is called the laya center….

We descended this ladder of light, each one having free will–each one, for various reasons, presenting himself before the Lord God Almighty in the Person of the Father/Mother God, Alpha and Omega. And therefore, we were given the opportunity to go into the outer universes, out from the original inner retreat in the heart of God. Some had the design of exercising the potential to be co-creator in the Matter spheres. Some wished to exercise free will independent of God. Others went forth as guardian spirits concerned about those who would go forth in a state of independence from the divine union.

For whatever reason, we find ourselves in the same octave, in the same frequency, which is a very narrow band of this physical universe. The outer universe is far more vast than this narrow band. Therefore finding ourselves together on the narrow band, we immediately have at least that in common. We can see one another, we can touch and feel one another, we can understand one another’s consciousness to a certain degree. And we understand one another’s problems because we share similar problems, similar karmic conditions….

Daily Attention On Your I Am Presence

28 Aug

 

Some people do not remember to give attention to their I AM Presence daily for ten minutes and then to retain that attention on the I AM Presence throughout the day. People ask me, “How do you do this?” Well, when you establish a very firm connection with Almighty God from the moment you awaken and you begin your meditation even when you are preparing yourself for your activities, and you give your decrees, it is like the background and the backdrop of your day. Whatever else your attention may be engaged in, your attention is really always on God, and everything else proceeds from that attention. And when you get into tense situations and long periods of total exertion of all of your forces, you take microseconds, split seconds, and you go back to that point of attunement and oneness. It is the anchor point of your energy and your Light. It’s like taking all of the forces of one’s being and hanging them on the hook of God and seeing that all is in an upward motion and an upward movement.

As you know, there is plenty of opposition to the crown chakra and to illumination’s flame. It comes in lethargy and sloth, heavy eating and diet making us sleepy, dulling our mental faculties, postponing the studying and the organizing of our spiritual work. But illumination is not merely the sharpening of one’s being in this octave; it is truly, through the crown chakra, oneness with the Father. It is practicing the Presence of God. And it is the Father who teaches us what we must learn from the teachings of the Son, or the Word incarnate.

And so, our goal is not merely to study, but to have the Word of the masters and to have the attunement with the Father through the crown chakra to assimilate, to know, to understand, to penetrate, to contain the essence of the Light for the supreme purpose of one’s own union with God—but even more importantly, for the purpose of having the right morsel of the Bread of Life, the right understanding, when we meet those in need on the path of life. Having this in the storehouse and treasure trove of our memory and our mind, the Holy Spirit can then release the precise wisdom for very difficult situations.

And I find as I go on in life that the challenges I discover in people and their problems become more complex, more demanding, more defying of the very presence of God which I would bring. And I realize that this is the end to which I have been prepared and to which you yourselves have been prepared: this high calling of being in the Presence of the Father and therefore always His instrument.

I AM Presence

Who Are You? – The Identity of the True Self

The mystical heart of the world’s religions is the identity of the true Self. The understanding of the Self is the most important insight that any individual can have in life.

The Self begins with the permanent atom of being, the cause out of which the effect proceeds. We call this cause the I AM THAT I AM, the Presence of the I AM, or the I AM Presence.

This Real Self is seen in relationship to the evolving self on a chart that is called the Chart of Your Divine Self. It illustrates so many of the cosmic truths that have been discovered by the great mystics of East and West.

The Chart has three parts and, in a sense, could be called the trinity of your identity.

Your I AM Presence

I AM Presence and the causal bodyFirst, there is the upper figure, which is a sphere of light called the “I AM Presence.” To Hindus, it is Brahma. Buddhists call it the Dharmakaya, while Christians think of it as God the Father. It is the spirit of God individualized for each one.

Your I AM Presence is surrounded by seven concentric spheres which make up your causal body. These spheres of pulsating spiritual energy contain the record of all your good works. They are like your cosmic bank account.

Your causal body has spheres of cosmic consciousness—seven planes of heaven, seven spheres of awareness corresponding to the seven mighty Elohim, the seven Archangels, the seven days of creation, and the seven color rays that are emitted from the white light that is the person and the principle of the Father, or Brahma, or I AM THAT I AM.

These seven ways translate to seven paths back to the Source and the Lords of the Seven Rays are ascended masters who teach seekers on those paths.

Your I AM Presence is a part of your being right now; it is not removed, it is not separated from you in time and space. The only separation you have from the I AM THAT I AM is your own human consciousness, your sense of limitation, and the accumulation of vibrations from this, and previous lifetimes, that are less than the highest qualities of your Real Self.

Your Higher Self

Holy Christ SelfBetween the sphere of light above and the soul evolving below is the consciousness of the Mediator. The mediator is that portion of the Self that can translate to the imperfect soul something of the perfection of the I AM THAT I AM. It is that portion of your being that is real enough to stand in the holy Presence of God.

We call this mediator the Higher Self, the Higher Mental Body, the Real Self or the Holy Christ Self. The Christian mystics sometimes referred to the Mediator as the “inner man of the heart.”

It is the Self that you are in a state of becoming through our evolution, through all of your experiences in time and space.

Depending on your spiritual tradition, you can think of this Mediator as your chief guardian angel, your inner guru (Higher Self or Atman), the voice of conscience—and always as your dearest friend.

What the Chart of Your Divine Self shows is that each of us has a Higher Self and that each of us is destined to become one with that Self, whether we call it the Christ, the Buddha, the Tao or the Atman.

You – The Living Potential of God

Your soul is evolving on the spiritual path in time and space. It is the part of you that is mortal—but that can become immortal.

Soul bathed in violet flameThe violet flame is depicted in the Chart of the Presence around you. The violet flame is a high-frequency energy of forgiveness. It’s a spiritual alchemy.

Around the violet flame is the protective white light of God known as the tube of light. We apply the science of the spoken Word to call forth that tube of light as a protection, sealing our aura, sealing our chakras from the heavy weight of darkness that is upon the planet. (More on how to invoke the tube of light.)

The shaft of white light descending from the I AM Presence through the Holy Christ Self to the lower figure in the Chart is the crystal cord (sometimes called the silver cord). It is the “umbilical cord,” the lifeline, that ties you to Spirit.

Your crystal cord also nourishes that special, radiant flame of God that is ensconced in the secret chamber of your heart. That is the threefold flame—called “threefold” because it engenders the primary attributes of Spirit—power, wisdom and love.

Secret Chamber of the Heart TSLIt is a very real spiritual flame about 1/16 of an inch, focused within the physical body approximately at the heart. It is a spark of sacred fire that God has transmitted from his heart to yours.

The Hindu Katha Upanishad speaks of the divine spark as the “Light of the Spirit” that is connected in the “secret high place of the heart.” The divine spark abides in what the Sikh Sri Guru Granth Sahib speaks of as Sach Khand, the secret chamber of the heart.

This threefold flame endows our being with consciousness, with self-awareness. The threefold flame is what separates us from animals. We are sons and daughters of God and children of the Light. God has given to us that spark of himself.

The ascended master Saint Germain sponsors a universal spiritual order called the Keepers of the Flame® Fraternity. Keepers of the Flame vow to keep this flame of life burning on the altar of their hearts. They tend this fire by preserving and upholding the principles of freedom and the sacredness of life, and by extending the flame to others who do not know that they have a divine spark.

The Purpose of Your Soul’s Evolution

The purpose of your soul’s evolution on earth is to grow in self-mastery, balance your karma, fulfill your mission on earth and make your ascension in the Light.

The end of all your incarnations is to become your Real Self, so that you return to the spiritual dimensions that are your real home. Through attention to your spiritual path, the three figures in the Chart—now separate because of a limited consciousness—will one day become one.

You, too, can attain union with God.

I AM Light

14 Oct

 

Light! Let light echo in the chamber of your heart. Light is the essence of your life and your path and your ascension. Apply thyself to the study of light.

Light is the intelligence of the I AM whose geometry, by the power of the Holy Spirit, is manifest as the cross of Alpha and Omega, the Spirit/Matter spheres. I said light, l-i-g-h-t.

you-are-a-sphere-of-light

We seal in the heart of the Word the nucleus of its energy and intent. The study of the Word is the study of the science of creation.

I AM Surya. I AM the light of Sirius. I AM the Sun behind the God Star. I AM the Sun of light. I emit light. You also may emit light if you choose. But the fusion of the heart and the echo of the light within the heart is the science that you must learn.

If you are not a suitable instrument, the light will not pass through. If the light does not pass through you, then you will not be nourished of the light. If you are not nourished of the light, then you cannot be of the light, for the light transforms, creates, re-creates the soul. In order to sustain light, you must be an instrument of light—as water passing through a pipe, so light passing through a vessel. light passing through the vessel keeps the vessel clean and in tune with its origin.

Light, then, is the intelligence of God, the intelligence of God that moves in the cloven tongues of the Holy Ghost and precipitates in the cross of Matter.

All of creation is light. How is it that we say that some are not of the light? Some are not of the light because the light that is in them is darkness. From whence did the darkness come? It has come as a misstatement of light, as a misqualification of light, as the mystification of the science of light.

We, then, stand at the fulcrum of life to deliver pure light, that the pure light which we give may flush out impure light— light made impure by an ungodly matrix…

There is a light that you are not capable of assimilating. It is the light of far-off worlds and cosmic beings. Therefore, that light is stepped down to other ascended beings and angels. And through your mighty I AM Presence, the light of the white-fire sun, that you also are not able to assimilate, is stepped down through the blessed Son, the Mediator, and then passed through your chakras, again stepped down for the assimilation of physical matter and physical cells. Thus, you see, hierarchy as a principle is inherent in the transfer of light… The ascended masters’ teachings are charged with light.

The Great Commandment

18 Feb

The Great Commandment, Part 1

 

And one of the scribes came and, having heard them reasoning together and perceiving that he had answered them well, asked him, Which is the first commandment of all?

And Jesus answered him, The first of all the commandments is: Hear, O Israel, the Lord our God is one Lord! And thou shalt love the Lord thy God with all thy heart, and with all thy soul, and with all thy mind, and with all thy strength. This is the first commandment.

And the second is like, namely this: Thou shalt love thy neighbor as thyself. There is none other commandment greater than these.

And the scribe said unto him, Well, Master, thou hast said the truth, for there is one God and there is none other but he. And to love him with all the heart, and with all the understanding, and with all the soul, and with all the strength, and to love his neighbor as himself is more than all whole burnt-offerings and sacrifices.

And when Jesus saw that he answered discreetly, he said unto him, Thou art not far from the kingdom of God. And no man after that durst ask him any question.

Mark 12:28-34

Love God with All Your Heart

It is a wonderful day to take up the teaching of the Great Commandment. We are poised with Jesus at an hour of great change in his life—a transition, an acceleration, the initiation of the resurrection and that new life of glory which he enters and therefore we enter with him.

We study his words given to John in his Revelation, given unto this hour through all of the saints and prophets. And we come to understand that there is an essence, a seed essence of teaching—and here it is in the Great Commandment.

We make it our own because we know it is our sure defense. And this defense is so necessary for the disciples who would go forth to heal in his name, to cast out devils, to bring mankind into alignment with their I AM Presence.

Those who would follow Jesus in his footsteps must understand the meaning of drinking his cup; they must realize that great protection and vigilance are required every hour, dipping into the communion cup each week, receiving from the altar the fire of the Holy Spirit as that protection on the way.

Let us realize how great, therefore, is the protection of God given to us in this Great Commandment to love the Lord thy God. This means the Lord, the I AM THAT I AM, the I AM Presence representing Elohim (see Pearls of Wisdom, vol. 21, nos. 8-27) where you are. Your representative of the Godhead—in fact, the replica of the Presence of God—is the Mighty I AM Presence.

There is only one Mighty I AM Presence, but we say, “My God and your God,” as Jesus did, (John 20:17) reinforcing the conception that each individual must individualize the God flame and therefore make it apparent, bring it forth, show forth by life—example, words and works, by the very Presence, by the perfume of the soul, by vibration and kindness or brilliance or whatever the virtue—what is the aspect of God that portrays the fullness of the Godhead truly dwelling bodily within us (if we will it so) as it did dwell in the Son of man, Jesus Christ.

This one God of all Israel is the very fire of creation, the Presence of God in the Great Central Sun, the one God who is able to heal all thy diseases, if thou wilt be healed. Therefore, you have with you always the Presence, I AM THAT I AM, that is the concentrate, the Person of the Father bearing the power of Elohim.

Therefore, the commandment is to love the Lord thy God with all thy heart. What is thy heart? Thy heart is a vessel that contains the divine spark, the threefold flame of life. Thy heart is a chalice, it is the Holy Grail. It contains the body and blood of the living Christ.

Loving God with all thy heart is with the full momentum of thy life, for the heart is thy life. It means loving—directing to God all of one’s love and heart.

Thus, the mystery here in the Great Commandment is to give back to God by free will all that he has given us. And by giving to God all of our heart, loving him with all of our heart, we are taking every bit of his life that he sends forth perpetually as the River of Life, as the crystal cord, and saying, “I have received. I will return this life of God with all of my heart.”

Thus, the mystery of the Great Commandment is: life is a two-way street. God sends forth his light; he gives us free will to send it back to him in love. And if we so do, we establish this closed circuit, a mighty circle of life. None can enter, none can penetrate with devices of unreality.

Sending all of our heart’s love to God protects us from ignorance, from karma, from world conditions because we are sealed when we are perpetually loving God. It is a tremendous gift of free will. We have the choice to love or not to love God, to direct our heart to him or not to. And therefore, we can observe the lever of attention, the lever of the heart—its occupation.

For there are some who do not have a pure heart. There are some who retain hardness of heart, the fear of the heart, records of death. These momentums, which are of karma (therefore we say they are karmic), block the flow of pure love, of one hundred percent of our life to God.

We desire to purify the heart, for out of the heart are the issues of life. When we allow the heart’s energies to descend to feed untoward desires and old momentums, these increase in power because our power is in the heart. And then these desires and momentums overtake us, and when we are confronted by them we are not able to defeat them because we have given them our attention.

And therefore, to fulfill the Great Commandment in all of its essence means to daily withdraw the heart’s devotion and love from those extraneous, exterior matters—matters of ambition or ego. For the ego would displace the Christ consciousness of our heart, setting up material goals, desires to acquire, desires of all manner of things in life. And each one of these desires takes a little bit of the momentum of the heart.

And then, when we need the heart for healing, for the supreme gift of life to someone, for raising the dead, for making our own ascension, for winning a cause, for standing for justice, the heart is weak, it cannot perform. We do not have the full power of the Godhead to pour that heart into His desire, His devotion.

When you love someone with all your heart, you begin to know that one very well. You begin to sense his very heartbeat and his soul and spirit. You live and move with him because out of the devotion comes a oneness.

Thus, when the object of your love is God—first and foremost the Mighty I AM Presence and then that Presence of God in all people—when you love God with such a steadfastness of your attention, you begin to know who he really is. You know the Father. There is such a current and an opening established in your life that you speak and he answers. And the acceleration of devotion of your heart clears the pathway for the descent of light. You ask God a question and he answers you by his Holy Spirit, by the Son of God also dwelling bodily within you.

If you don’t practice and exercise and communicate, then one fine day when you need an answer, it will be as though the heavens were leaden and you will hear nothing. Well, if you do not write a letter to someone for many years, and all of a sudden you knock on the door and say, “Here I am!” they will say, “Where have you been all this time? I haven’t heard from you. Now you expect me to be your friend—all of a sudden you need me. Well, I have other things to do today.”

In other words, a friendship or a love requires nourishing, as you water a plant daily. One should not presume upon this love-tie to God. One should have devotion to it as one is devoted to one’s acquaintances and understand that the bond of love needs nourishing.

When you know God because you love him and you feel him, you have a sense of anticipation of the Father’s presence in your life and in your decisions. You begin to know what God would want you to do in the given circumstance. You do not have to ponder every footstep, because your footsteps have a goal and you are moving straight to the goal. You do not have to ask God a thousand questions, because you have the sense of his being and you know what he expects; it is second nature. God has become your second nature because you love him, the Lord thy God, with all thy heart.
