"Being deeply loved by someone gives you strength;
loving someone deeply gives you courage."—Lao Tzu

"Two are better than one; because they have a good reward for their labour.
For if they fall, the one will lift up his fellow: but woe to him that is alone
when he falleth; for he hath not another to help him up. Again, if two lie together,
then they have heat: but how can one be warm alone?"—Ecclesiastes 4:9-11

"The most important consequence of marriage is, that the husband and the wife
become in law only one person . . . Upon this principle of union,
almost all the other legal consequences of marriage depend."—James Wilson

"When love beckons to you follow him,
Though his ways are hard and steep."
— Kahlil Gibran, 'The Prophet' 1923

"The greatest love is that of your mother's.
Then comes your dog's.
And then comes your sweetheart's."
—Old Polish proverb

"Thus I come to pierce the illusion that all problems are resolved by the meeting of twin flames or even soul mates. But I come with a statement of truth: that all problems may be solved by this union when it is founded upon the Rock of divine reality.

"We come and we sponsor because your hearts have yearned, your souls have prayed, your minds have sought—sought to fulfill the reason for being in this life, sought to attain oneness with the perfect one. We will connect those for whom the connection results in a positive force for one another and for society. Where it would be detrimental in all ways or some, we recommend the accelerated path of the chela, humility before the Teaching of the Great White Brotherhood, which does give to you the knowledge of the violet flame and the call to Astrea which is the most powerful mantra to the Divine Mother that has been released in this octave.

"The power of the Universal Mother carrying the circle and sword of blue flame that is released in this mantra is great indeed, capable of fulfilling every manifestation of the Mother, East or West, and capable of driving from you evil spirits that lurk, addictions, self-indulgences and all pettiness that snatch from you that precious love which comes so gently, so powerfully, and yet is as fragile as crystal and can be broken and will be broken by the forces of the night unless you keep the tryst with Astrea and Archangel Michael and ‘Krttikeya’, whom you know as Sanat Kumara.

"Understand that the highest and most perfect love begins with your individual expression of the heart, the expansion of that flame of love until all irritation is consumed and pride is not and you stand before your God truly worthy of whatever blessing can be given. Inasmuch as personal karma is the key factor separating twin flames and inasmuch as it is desirable that twin flames unite in service, the x factor that can make the difference is the entering in of one of the Ascended Masters or of Padma Sambhava or Gautama or Sanat Kumara to sponsor that union by pledging to take on the karma that does keep apart those souls. This sponsorship is like the sponsorship of the individual chela except it is the joint sponsorship of the twain.

"This, then, is a call you ought to include in your prayers. It is a call that says:

" 'O God, I desire to perform the best service and to fulfill my inner vow with my twin flame. If it be that karma does separate us and therefore our service, I pray, let the Lord God set it aside for an hour and a year that we might show ourselves worthy, plow the straight furrow, enter into the service of our God and our country and of world freedom that together we may choose to balance that karma. And we do choose to do so, Lord God.

" 'We pledge, then, no matter what may come, that if we be united, we will serve in harmony by the grace of God to first balance the karma taken on by an Ascended Master that that one need not carry for us the burden that is truly our own.'

"Thus having so said, it is important to record on paper in your own writing this prayer and whatever you have added to it with the date carefully inscribed and with your signature. You may insert it in the book of the Everlasting Gospel.

"You must remind yourself to call to Archangel Michael to defend the highest encounter and to bind all impostors of your twin flame. For as soon as the desire is set and the sail is raised on your ship, the false hierarchy will send in those of attraction, of glamour or of heavy karma or even the initiators that come out of the depths of darkness posing as the Krishna, the holy one of God that is thine own.

"To prepare for the perfect union, one must have the vision and the inner tie to God that tells one of the lurking danger. Thus keep the prayer and the call. And when all tests have been passed and the one sent is sent, remember that the purpose of that togetherness is truly first and foremost the balancing of that karma and the setting free of the Ascended Master that indeed has sponsored you and paid a price, the understanding of which will not be yours until one day you stand to offer yourself to pay the price for another.

"Now, it does often occur that this very call results in the ascended twin flame approaching the unascended one. And thereby the union of hearts, as Above so below, can be fulfilled as the ascended twin flame does hold the balance of the karma while the unascended twin flame accelerates on the Path. This union may become so great that the Ascended Master and the unascended chela may walk the earth as one at inner levels, and the Electronic Presence of the ascended twin flame may be upon the unascended one. Thus that unascended one, having an aura of completeness, presents therefore to others a strength, a love, an ability to give because the source is wholeness, is oneness."

El Morya

"Another mystery of the soul unveiled in Kabbalah is the mystery of you and your soul partner. The Zohar teaches that your soul has a twin who was created with you in the beginning. God will bring the two of you together, it says, if you live a life of purity and good works. All the souls in the world, which are the fruit of the handiwork of the Almighty, are mystically one, but when they descend to this world they are separated into male and female, though these are still conjoined.

"When they first issue forth, they issue as male and female together. Subsequently, when they descend [to this world] they separate, one to one side and the other to the other, and God afterwards unites themGod and no other, He alone knowing the mate proper to each. Happy the man who is upright in his works [or pure] and walks in the way of truth, so that his soul may find its original mate, for then he becomes indeed perfect, and through his perfection the whole
world is blessed.

"Centuries before the Zohar was written, Plato taught that each of us is half of a divine whole and that is why we are always searching for our original partner. In his Symposium he writes: 'Ancient is the desire of one another which is implanted in us, reuniting our original nature, making one of two, and healing the state of man.

"Each of us when separated, having one side only, like a flat fish, is but the indenture [indentation] of a man, and he is always looking for his other half . . . When one of them meets with his other half, the actual half of himself, . . . the pair are lost in an amazement of love and friendship and intimacy . . . These are the people who pass their whole lives together; yet they could not explain what they desire of one another. For the intense yearning which each of them has towards the other does not appear to be the desire of lover's intercourse, but of something else which the soul of either evidently desires and cannot tell.'

"Plato's image of the lone soul as a flat fish, having only one side, reminds me of statues of the Hindu god Shiva that depict him as half man and half woman. According to legend, Shiva was determined that there be no separation between himself and his consort Parvati. He therefore decreed that his right side represent Shiva and that his left side represent Parvati in an eternal union. That eternal union with one's divine counterpart and with God is what every soul, consciously or unconsciously, yearns for.

"Like the Zohar, Plato says our search for our divine partner will end only if we are pious and avoid evil: Human nature was originally one and we were a whole, and the desire and pursuit of the whole is called love. 'There was a time, I say, when we were one, but now because of the wickedness of mankind God has dispersed us . . . Wherefore let us exhort all men to piety, that we may avoid evil, and obtain the good, of which Love is to us the lord and minister . . . If we are friends of the god [Love] and at peace with him, we shall find our own true loves, which rarely happens in this world at present . . . I believe that if our loves were perfectly accomplished, and each one returning to his primeval nature had his original true love, then our race would be happy . . . [The god Love] promises that if we are pious, he will restore us to our original state, and heal us and make us happy and blessed.'

"The term the ascended masters use to describe you and your 'other half' is 'twin flames.' God created your twin flames out of a single 'white fire body.' He separated this ovoid into two spheres of being—one with a masculine polarity and the other with a feminine polarity. For the purpose of the soul's evolution, each half of the divine whole has its own Causal Body, I AM Presence, Holy Christ Self and soul. Twin flames are twin flames because they have the same spiritual origin and unique pattern of identity.

"We would have continued to share the beauty of the relationship of cosmic lovers with our twin flame throughout our many incarnations on earth if we had remained in harmony with each other and with God. But we fell from the state of perfection by misusing God's light. In the process, we created negative karma—coils of energy and layers of density in our aura that have separated us from our twin flame. We found ourselves farther and farther apart until we passed as ships in the night, not knowing how near and yet how far we were from one another.

"Thus before God can bring you and your twin flame together, you may have karmic obligations to others that you must fulfill. The sooner you balance your karma through service to life, the sooner you and your twin flame will be liberated for the next step in the saga of your destiny. This is one of the reasons why we find ourselves inexplicably drawn into certain circumstances, relationships or marriages. We may have something very important to give to another or to receive from another before we can move on with the divine plan of our twin flames.

"In chapter 4, I said that the most effective way to fulfill karmic obligations is through prayer, especially by invoking the violet flame, and through service to God, family and community. This is what Plato and the Zohar mean when they say we must be pious and upright in our works in order to be reunited with our other half.

"The first step toward your soul's union with her twin flame is to seek union with your Holy Christ Self and I AM Presenceto cleave to God, as the Jewish mystics would say. For you want to be able to bring to your twin flame the highest gift of your love, your true self and your spiritual attainment. And it is the light of God you garner as you ascend the ladder of the sefirot that will magnetize your twin flame to you or liberate you both to move closer to that goal.

"Not all beautiful and soul-fulfilling loves are those of twin flames. There is also the love of kindred souls, who are called 'soul mates.' Whereas twin flames share a common spiritual origin, soul mates share a complementary calling in life. They are mates in the sense of being partners for the journey, co-workers. Soul mates are very compatible and very much alike. They are, in a sense, playmates in the schoolroom of life. You may have a number of such associations in the history of your soul's incarnations. But you only have one twin flame, and your twin flame is your greatest love.

"Although you may be separated from your twin flame on earth, you are always one in Spirit. If karma must keep you apart for a season, at spiritual levels you may still work with your twin flame, amplifying the combined momentum of your love to minister to life. The Baal Shem Tov, founder of Hasidism, a Jewish religious movement that began in Poland in the eighteenth century, expressed the beauty and power of the relationship of twin flames when he wrote: 'From every human being there rises a light that reaches straight to heaven. And when two souls that are destined to be together find each other, their streams of light flow together and a single brighter light goes forth from their united being.'"

Kabbalah, Key to Your Inner Power
E. C. Prophet, Spadaro, Steinman

Twin Flames
Les Miserables, I Dreamed A Dream

I dreamed a dream in time gone by,
When hope was high and life worth living.
I dreamed that love would never die,
I dreamed that God would be forgiving.

Then I was young and unafraid,
And dreams were made and used and wasted.
There was no ransom to be paid,
No song unsung, no wine untasted.

But the tigers come at night,
With their voices soft as thunder,
As they tear your hope apart,
And they turn your dream to shame.

And still I dream he'll come to me,
That we will live the years together,
But there are dreams that cannot be,
And there are storms we cannot weather!

I had a dream my life would be
So different from this hell I'm living,
So different now from what it seemed.
Now life has killed the dream I dreamed.

" . . . I would, therefore, prevail upon you that from this day forward you focus on balancing your karma with your twin flame with dispatch. And whether your twin flame is in embodiment on earth or is in the heaven-world, you must make it your business to work on balancing your karma as well as the karma of your twin flame by giving lavishly of your momentum on your violet-flame decrees to your twin flame.

"And if you are fortunate to have in your twin flame one who has greater spiritual attainment than you have—even one who is a saint in heaven or an Ascended Master—you then have a great boon. For 'your better half' is constantly pulling you up that you might attain union with God and your twin flame in this life."

Archangel Raphael
and Mother Mary

" . . . Therefore if you love one another as Christ has loved you forever, so it will be counted unto you as the expression of love for your twin flame. For life is one and God is one, and souls of light and love are one. And therefore bless all life free and, you see, you will balance every injustice that has separated from you the beloved of your heart."

Archangel Chamuel and Charity
February 14, 1986

" . . . Some law is unchanging, but there are rulings, there are dispensations, there are interpretations that come forth which, according to the times, may have an alteration. Take, for instance, the law that was given at the time of Jesus and Paul that there should be no divorce. This was a very necessary law in that time because of the sensuality of the people, because of the need to establish the Holy Family matrix and for souls to work out their karma and not to be allured, one to the other. We do not advocate divorce in this day and age, but we recognize that two thousand years later there is a different situation on earth. That situation is the acceleration of the balance of karma.

"With the acceleration of these cycles, therefore, it sometimes becomes necessary for individuals to change partners, as you say, for a higher purpose, for a higher calling and for the working out of that manifestation of light within them, especially in the case of lightbearers, where past associations do not lead to the victory of the soul or to the path of initiation. It becomes necessary, then, to cut those ties, to go on and to know that you can balance karma on a universal basis. And so you see, it was Jesus himself who gave this teaching; yet Jesus today standing before you would [in some cases] give you the opposite teaching.

"Do you not understand, then, that the ascended masters are here because we must work with the needs of the hour? We must work with the current manifestations of free will. As free will responds to God’s will, then there is created a new dispensation and a new requirement for an interpretation of the law."


On July 5, 1982, Elizabeth Clare Prophet gave the following teaching on divorce: “The teachings of the Bible on divorce are for the dispensation of Pisces and the Arian dispensation which preceded it . . . When we come into the Aquarian age, we actually come into a new dispensation regarding divorce laws. There is a reason for this. [Although] the masters have never approved divorcing a spouse on the basis of simply tiring of a plaything and . . . finding a better sexual partner, . . . the Brotherhood understands . . . that in one lifetime we are expected to balance many areas of karma, and some of these conditions of karma can only be balanced through marriage.

"And at the end of that marriage, whether it’s two years or fifty years, the karma is satisfied . . .The Brotherhood . . . tells us that each one must search his soul and discover whether or not one has done all in one’s power to bring harmony to a marriage and a home, to make a go of it, and whether there is such disagreement and such discord that it would be more costly to the partners to remain together than it would be to go . . . their separate ways . . .The ascended masters . . . are concerned . . . that you do not walk out on your responsibilities and . . . your karma . . . It’s a very private matter between you and God . . .

"We have to beware of self-righteousness in marriage, of condemnation of the spouse. We have to beware of intolerance. Our spouses don’t have to be the same religion as we are. They may be very devout and holy people in their own vein. What is important is that there be harmony, and, if there are children in the family, that they see a unity of the parents, a proper and dignified representation of the Father-Mother God and not continual strife and self-degradation.”

(For more on relationships and marriages, see Elizabeth Clare Prophet, Soul Mates and Twin Flames: The Spiritual Dimension of Love and Relationships, pp. 85–102; and Elizabeth Clare Prophet and Patricia R. Spadaro, Karma and Reincarnation: Transcending Your Past, Transforming Your Future, pp. 88–107.)

"Blessed hearts, when you win the victory of light in your heart that victory always counts for your beloved. And when the beloved is ready, so then will that entire momentum of your victory serve to catapult that one almost in the twinkling of an eye to new planes of awareness.

" . . . In the pain of parting and anger or argument, beloved, in the moment of separation whch discord brings as well as the destruction of the filigree pattern of the renewal of the ancient tie, there must be seen the value and the preciousness of the oneness in the white-fire core of being regardless of all outer manifestions.

"Thus there is a holiness and a grace between one another that must be observed. Often the shortcomings of twin flames are similar, therefore mutually aggravating. Beloved hearts, angels of the sacred fire have worked centuries to bring you together, [therefore guard the union, guard the harmony]."

Lady Master Venus
November 17, 1985

"It is absolutely essential that at inner levels and in the plane of the I AM THAT I AM and the Holy Christ Self—your soul reaching that plane by dynamic decree and meditation and service to life —that you are one with your twin flame and that you complete your reason for being on earth in this hour.

" . . . Lo, I AM Alpha and Omega of the twinflame whitefire bodies of myself and my beloved manifest here in action! Lo, I AM Alpha and Omega, the beginning and the ending of our whitefire sphere of wholeness! To affirm here below therefore the oneness of yourself and twin flame will place upon you the mantle of these twin spheres of light to accomplish the purposes to which you are set."

November 17, 1985

" . . . There is such a thing as storing truth in the cisterns of the aura, of having the wells full of crystal water when, on the parched desert, it is not you who thirst but the traveler on the way. Provisions I give to you for yourself not alone but for thee and thy other self. Perhaps the one in need is thine own twin flame or the lost child of another life whose sorrow in parting you yet bear.

"All hurts of soul can be healed, blessed hearts, if you will allow us to heal them. Many of the scars that require healing must come through sharing love, through coming together again with those you have not met for many a lifetime. Thus we give and give again so that you have much to give to those who have so very little."

Saint Germain

"Beloved ones, how great is the love that does sacrifice a life on behalf of the many rather than compromise for the sake of agreement (otherwise known as sympathy) with another who does refuse to ascend the ladder of Life. Those who have ascended and left behind their twin flames, beloved, have never regretted it once. For by that ascension the one in embodiment does perpetually have the momentum to draw upon and to impel him/her upward in search of the
perfect Love."

Mother Mary
April 18, 1987

"The consequences of sipping too much of the elixir of love ere you are ready for it is a certain poisoning of the system."

Saint Germain
August 11, 1991

"The earnest student must believe us when we say that so long as a trace of human feelings—mild dislike including subtle jealousies or hatreds—remains in his consciousness, he will be unable to summon the great love magnet of the Central Sun to assist him in obtaining reentrance into the paradise of God where the Tree of Life spreads its all-enfolding branches of beneficence."

April 26, 1963

"Open the door of your heart that the oppressed might receive from you the elixir of love, the elixir of love, beloved."

December 30, 1994

"The happy State of Matrimony is, undoubtedly, the surest and most lasting Foundation of Comfort and Love; the Source of all that endearing Tenderness and Affection which arises from Relation
and Affinity; the grand Point of Property; the Cause of all good Order in the World, and what alone preserves it from the utmost Confusion; and, to sum up all, the Appointment of infinite Wisdom for these great and good Purposes."Benjamin Franklin (Rules and Maxims for Promoting Matrimonial Happiness, 8 October 1730), Reference: Franklin: Collected Works, Lemay, ed. (152)

"When divorces can be summoned to the aid of levity, of vanity, or of avarice, a state of marriage frequently becomes a state of war or strategem."James Wilson (Lectures on Law, 25 November 1791) Reference: Vindicating the Founders, West (100); original Works, Wilson.

341. Even the most ancient conception viewed the cosmic laws as being impelled by a two-tongued flame. The indication in ancient writings concerning the manifestation of the dual origin is also based upon the knowledge of polarity in each energy. Cosmic creativeness can be manifested only through the dual origin. Thus, in deposing the Great Mother, humanity robs itself of the privilege of conscious cooperation with Cosmos. M: Infinity - Book 1 (1930)
