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.


Little keys unlock

the biggest doors,

and man

must be ready

to walk through

and not stand hesitatingly

upon the threshold
