Clear the Way for the Coming of the Lord into Your Temple

17 Jul

 

Clear the way for the coming of the Lord into your temple, for he will suddenly come, even as the thief in the night. I ask you: When your Holy Christ Self is appointed of God to descend into your temple, will you be ready or will the vessels break? Will they break, beloved, and the Light be lost?

The mystery of the breaking of the vessels is spoken of in Kabbalah. Do not allow the vessels of consciousness to break by being too yin or too yang; but retreat to the center of the heart, for it is the white fire of winter solstice.

So, beloved, there is a spiral stairway that descends into the lowest levels of consciousness to which you have descended in all of your lifetimes. It is time to roll up these stairs as you would roll up a scroll. But you must descend at least once more so that step by step you may sweep, scrub and polish each step. Take that step in consciousness. Keep it firm. Make it firm.

Be firm, therefore, in the inner coils of fire the seraphim bring to you. For seraphim are your helpers as you move to bring to resolution all that has not been of God or of the Holy of holies or of the electronic fire rings of the Central Sun. There is nothing to keep you from this victory but your own doubt or depression or non-resolution with self or others.

I say, beloved, there are many reasons, known to the Keeper of the Scrolls, why you should accomplish this resolution in these days to come. And if you cannot accomplish this fully in 1995, then at least enter the new year with the intensity of a fiery purpose that says: “I am shedding the snakeskin of my former self, that I might be now and forever in the invincible presence of Serapis!”

Lo, I AM the Lord of the Fourth Ray! Therefore I am at the midpoint of the lineup of the Seven Chohans as the Chohan of white fire. In that white fire I bear ascension’s flame, beloved, and also the flame of eternal life.

Long, long ago, for reasons I shall not discuss this evening, your soul lost the flame of her immortality and became mortal. And ever since, beloved,

you have been calling to God for deliverance.

I say, deliver yourself in the name of God, I AM THAT I AM! Deliver yourself of all that smacks of mortality, mortal thinking, finite thinking, the thinking that limits the soul and causes despair.

Know what is immortal thinking and engage in that thinking, beloved. Dwell upon the precepts of the Most High. Be willing to walk those many steps from the base of self to the heights of self, leaving no stone unturned—no stone of karma, no stone of schism or division. It can be done, for ye have the violet flame. Ye have the white fire of the Mother and the knowledge of how to raise that sacred fire on the altar of your being.

Persevere! And You Shall Win!

18 Apr

Gracious ones, as I myself pause to consider the aspects of mortal discouragement, I am reminded again and again how each Ascended One has overcome. I am reminded how each Ascended One has longed to find release from that which binds–

To know, to do, to dare;
To hold communion’s sacred prayer


With God alone in towers strong,
Shut out all wrong
And be alone with Him.
Thus will all mortal clamor die,
Confusion fly,
And peace be born that day, that morn.
Rejoice!  Mourn no more,
For Life at hand defies
All that which is unreal.
Life demands you feel
The beat of sovereign heart;
The feet of Christ impart
The power to cleave the mountains apart
And be that which you see.

I AM the Lord thy God.
His word is Law, His rod is power;
His word by grace will sin devour.
His power reaches out to win
Beyond doubt the ascension flame,
Flashing forth now in act, in vow,
In compassion as you plow a furrow straight,
Parting the land for fruit and flower
And hope beyond debate.
You must hold that vision fair,
That holy vision flashing through the air
That shows that Heaven’s here,
Not far away.
O grateful ones, you run this day
To win, to persevere!

I thank you and I commend you
Into the watchful care of the Holy One
Who shall neither slumber nor sleep
But shall keep you ‘neath His feet
That raised you may be
Up through the air in spiral fair
To hold His hands in Reality’s prayer–
A goal that’s won, a spark to Sun
Applied as Light that ends all night,
And brightness shines forevermore!

Lords of the Seven Rays: Serapis Bey

8 Oct

Serapis Bey, Chohan of the Fourth ray, was the high priest in the ascension temple on Atlantis.  The hierophant tells us why, out of the seven, he originally close to serve on the white ray of the Divine Mother:  “when I was a chela determining on what ray I would serve, what ray I would preserve in the office of preserver of Life, I contemplated all, but I came to the light of purity, and I said–master of geometry that I was–The shortest distance between two points, point A and point B, is purity.  Purity I shall be.”

Serapis Bey was Leonidas and held the path for two days until he was betrayed by a local man.  Serapis continued to incarnate  in the area of the Nile.  Where before he made his ascension he built the temple at Luxor that corresponds to  the human skeletal framework. Its courtyards and rooms closely correspond to the body. The Temple of Luxor is indisputably devoted to the Human Microcosm. This consecration is not merely a simple attribution:  the entire temple becomes a book explaining the secret functions of the organ and nerve centers.

In truth this temple displays the idea of the rebirth of the divine man based on his transformation through the universal Mother Principal.  And to those who have eyes to see and ears to hear, the mysteries are unveiled.  The Principle and Presence of the Mother in the matter body is taught by the Lord of the Fourth Ray as in metaphor he raises our consciousness to the plane of causation:  “Out of the Word is Mother and the Word is Mother and in this Word was the soundless sound that passing through her lips became AUM of the creation.  Thus the science of sound and the science of the Word are known in the white fire core of the Fourth Ray.  And Alpha stepped forth and Omega was the One and through her the beginning became the ending.”

“For the sake of her children’s restoration to the House of Spirit,” he explains, “Omega entered the Matter universes.  And our Dear Mother became one with the Matter cycles below even as she is in–for her Blessed Being constitutes–the Matter cycles Above.  And now in the last days the Mother, even the Great Kali, strips from her own all violations of Her Matter Body by the dark ones.  Therefore I give you this prayer to sustain you through the rigorous initiations of the Fourth Ray:

Even so come quickly, Dearest Mother, to liberate our souls

forever from the bondage of the senses, the illusion

of time and space and the violators of they Word incarnate in our souls!

Come, Blessed Mother, Come

In the bas-relief of white fire, Purity–and this is one of the many-virtued names of our Divine Mother–reveals a higher beauty and a truer harmony of Love in music and art, and a technology beyond any achieved through the applied sciences of today.  “And She is the All, and the sacred fire of the creation is both her servant and her Lord.”

In addition to purity and the rituals of soul-purification, the qualities of the Fourth Ray of God’s heart are the desire for the perfection of the inner patterns to be out-pictured in the matter matrix and the desire for self-discipline under one’s spiritual hierarch in order that one might attain the pristine goal. Intense devotion to the presence of God will result in the natural bestowal of the gift of miracles.  As Serapis has said, “In the past, many of the saints who levitated into the atmosphere did so by reason of the intensity of their magnetization of the energy of the God flame above. The floating into the air of these saints was an attestment to their devout and intimate relationship with the God Presence.”

Serapis cautions against becoming enamored of the gift that result from attainment on the Path.  The ascension and the abilities attendant on the raising of the Kundalini fires must be desired ordinately, he says. Some desire them inordinately and resort to a haphazard use of various forms of yoga, when they could achieve the siddhis, i.e., powers, naturally by fulfilling the Seventh Ray requirements for the ascension.

The rising up the sacred fire–the Mother light sealed in the base-of-spine chakra is accomplished through various techniques of meditation with bija mantras.

This raising of the Kundalini under the Ascended Masters’ tutelage is not a sudden burst of fire, but a gentle rising of strength and consciousness.  And you feel the consciousness of God a part of yourself along this spinal altar.  And it gives you the strength of mind and will and body to achieve your ends.
