"Long ago another planet similar to our earth had lifewaves
of people where a great portion
of the evolutions achieved self-mastery and made their ascension
in the light. On that planet a large number of people, however,
as parties of the opposition using their own free will, decided
that they preferred to live in the flesh without taking their
ascension, that they were having a very good time, in their own
"They loved to eat and did not like the
idea that in the ascended state they might not be able to taste
food. They did not understand that the masters have every taste
quality that humans have and many that humans do not have. They
did not understand that God was not going to rob them of anything
by raising them up into a higher octave. They simply thought and
feared that in the losing of human consciousness and the entering
into the divine they would be losing themselves. And this they
did not want to do. They wanted a life of their own, an exclusive
life. And many of them sided together and they became the so-called
laggards of that civilization.
"Quite naturally, there was a time when
these laggards did express a certain harmony among themselves.
It's very difficult, you know, to revel alone. You can't make
merry alone; you have to have someone with you. And so the men
and women of that time and in that civilization got together and
they tooted their trumpets and they unrolled their paper ticker
tapes, and so forth. And they drank and they ate and they made
merry and they married and buried and they did everything that
people do. And they naturally did not ascend with the rest of
Materialism Creates Competition, Envy, Condemnation
"What happened is the inevitable that happens
in all materialistic civilizations: through turning away from
the opportunities of soul expansion and entering into materialism,
they entered into competition. People began to compete with one
another to see who could win. Now, this is fine as long as when
people win everyone applauds them with this statement: 'This could
have been me and therefore I am so happy that they have excelled.
I will applaud them. I will clap for them. I rejoice with them.'
"Not so. The feeling of envy came into
being in many of the people. And they began to envy the person
who had won and to go about discussing this at first only with
themselves and then gradually talking to other people and finding
flaws with this person who had won some either minor or major
victory. And all types of sinister and negative forces were born.
"It started, then, upon this planet where
the people would not go on. There was created, then, a momentum
of jealously, of condemnation, of hatred, of egoism, of viciousness,
of maliciousness, of destruction and of every type of wicked force
(which I don't care to name) that is actually inherent within
our civilization today.
The Opening of the Mouth of the Demons
"The laggards eventually brought about
the total nuclear annihilation of their planetary home. A remnant
of souls considered salvageable were allowed by cosmic councils
to embody on earth to work out their karma. Now, the cosmic councils
hoped that when these laggard souls came to earth, they would
learn from the civilizations of earth what they ought to do. But
the reverse happened, as most of you know, and mankind opened
"Pandora is a word that is very, very important
because the word pan means 'wide strata' and ora comes from the
word orifice, meaning 'opening' or 'mouth.' And therefore Pan-d-ora—the
d in there is for 'deity' or 'demon,' whichever you choose to
assign to it—means, in this
case, 'the opening of the mouth of the demons.' And that is exactly
"All of the venom of the sinister activities
of these laggards became assimilated by the people of earth and
they began to mimic and imitate the laggard races rather than
influence the laggard races to mimick and imitate them. The result
was the Noachian flood, or great deluge, which you're familiar
with and read about in your Bible.
"I say all of this for one reason only:
to historically relate the creation of all forms of negative energy
and to show you that this is a very, very old force that you may
not necessarily have created. You may have had no part in it.
Some of you may always have been a part of a very benign lifewave.
"On the other hand, most of us had some
part in perpetuating the negative qualities as well as the good.
For let it be known that our civilization is not all negative
or all evil. A far cry from it! The benign qualities of our civilization
are great. There are many wonderful qualities in the human heart.
"But the fact remains that the negative
qualities do exist and you can' t deny this, any of you, for you
can read it in your newspapers. It's behind all of the viciousness
that happens on the streets of the world. It's behind the wars
that we have fought—three wars
in this generation. It's behind all the actions of criticism and
things that occur in politics.
Criticism: A Popular Sport That Is Easy to Get Snared Into
"Now, let us look at this thing honestly,
because this force is very powerful in the world. It is something
that the world does not like but it still practices. People do
not like it when it hits
them, but they practice it against others. I'm certain it's done
ignorantly many times. I actually
believe and I know it, for I was a part of it, too, very definitely.
"I can recall many years ago (and I'll
tell on myself), early in the time when I was trying to get more
and more deeply into the spiritual path, I attended conferences
in various parts of the nation. And after they would have their
meetings, they would usually get together and have coffee and
cake. Sometimes this was in a cafeteria in Chicago or other cities
and other times it would be in a private home or in a hall.
"Invariably the popular sport that they
engaged in after their meeting was to cuss and discuss individual
personalities in their very own movement. Now, because I knew
some of these people and knew their foibles and weaknesses as
well as their strengths, I would sometimes be drawn into it, too.
And I found this condition very prevalent.
"As I said before, I was guilty of partaking
of it, not, I know, with malice or forethought, because my heart
and motives were pure. My hands were clean of any desire to hurt
anyone. But I entered this sport because it was very popular.
People were doing it. I don't think they were malicious. I don
't honestly think so. It was mere conversation.
"But I understand it because I went through
it. I found that it is a very easy thing to get snared
into. And once you get snared into it, things can be said that
you never intended to say.
Hurts Deposited in the Memory Body Trigger Unkind Words
"Sometimes a little point of jealousy in
your own world that you didn't even know was there will spark
you on. It may be a little hurt. You know, when you get a group
of people together, it's possible that sometimes someone won't
shake hands with the other one or they'll give them a dirty look.
It may not even be because they had an ill feeling in their heart
toward the other person. It's possible and is many times true
that people may have some trouble in their own world or household.
And because they have this trouble in their household, they will
be thinking along a line a little bit negative and they'll look
at somebody else and they'll look at them with a dagger. But it
may not be true that they have any ill feeling toward that person
"So this thing gets picked up, this hurt
gets deposited in the memory body, the etheric body, and then
at the right time it enters the emotional body during a conversation.
The person feels just a little bit on edge. They 're sitting there.
The vibration is going down as people are being
discussed. It keeps dropping all the time. And pretty soon it
gets down into the level where the etheric shoots in this arrow,
'You remember the time you were at this conference and they wouldn't
speak to you or they walked away from you?' Right. I do remember
it, you say to yourself. Boom. The feelings rise up and something
is said about this person that is not kind or complimentary.
Cliques Wrap a 'Barbed Wire Fence' around Themselves
"Now, the whole world lieth in this wickedness—all
of them. And I can truthfully say that the religious activities
of the world, including the large activities and great big churches,
are guilty of having cliques—little
groups that are friends. They get together and one clique is played
against another. This has caused disunity and inharmony down through
"I am convinced that what we call the sinister
force, the negative force of the world, the rebellious force,
the laggard force, the materialistic force, the communistic force—all
of that is linked together in an armored column, as it were. It's
a contrast to the golden chain mail that the master talked about
to insulate us from the psychic. This is a sort of barbed wire
fence that the human race have wrapped around themselves in their
little groups so that every time anyone tries to break through
from one way or the other they get cut on the barbed wire of human
conduct. There is no question that this is not godly, and yet
I'm also convinced that the world is caught in this no-man's-land
of oppression practiced against peoples.
"We are no exception to this. But I say
we can be because the ascended masters, when they began to work
with the Theosophical Society (and I'm going back to Madame Blavatsky),
found that they had to cope with this problem in the release of
spiritual truth to the world. And I'm going to tell you why.
A Smear Campaign Intended to Destroy a Movement
"When the Theosophical Society began to
bring forth the tremendous truths that they have, the established
religious movements (that is, the orthodox) were naturally very
much opposed—very much opposed—to
the bringing in of these great truths. So they did the same thing
that political candidates do. They began a smear campaign against
Madame Blavatsky because she was a cigarette smoker, as you probably
know, and she had other faults in her work. She was an excellent
channel for the masters to use (they could get almost direct image
contact from their thought to her thought), but she was not a
perfect woman in her outer life. She had many faults.
"Therefore they attacked this woman, hoping
to destroy the movement by attacking her personally. Well, they
certainly did keep out a lot of people who were interested in
it. And they certainly have ever since caused a certain amount
of difficulty for the society. But they did not stop the society
itself from growing and expanding and being somewhat the forerunner
of many of the mystical groups in America. Even the I AM Activity,
for example, has sprung from the society.
"Constructive spiritual groups have always had a basic problem
to cope with, and that is human nature. Human nature being what
it is, is bound at some time or other to engage in some form of
discordant manifestation. These things seem to come in waves.
They come in periods. They'll stop for a while and then they'll
start again. None of us really wants to be a part of it, and yet
all of us at times may be brought into it.
"The main thing that we must recognize
is that this discord is a destructive force that will never build
up any movement so that it can go forward and do God's work and
God's will. We must have perfect harmony or as nearly perfect
harmony as we possibly can or else we will not succeed in our
endeavors for God. Nor will we succeed personally in overcoming
mistakes and errors.
"Now, I have often heard repeated the fact
that people who live in glass houses should not throw stones.
Certainly we hope that the staff and board of The Summit Lighthouse
do not live in glass houses. And certainly this morning we are
not throwing any stones at any person. We love
unequivocally and without question every single member of this
congregation. And we have a deep devotion to the supreme causes.
"We also believe that you yourself bear
us an honest affection. However, every organization, either in
its heart center or in those churches and organizations that are
close to the heart center, is bound at some time or another to
have individuals who might at one point have some personal
feeling about something that is done by the staff or by the board.
"No one can please everyone, no matter
how hard he tries. And yet our job and task is not so much to
please you—that is, your human--as
it is to please your immortal soul. And therefore we have dedicated
ourselves to evolving and evoking from within you those responses
that will mean in the schoolroom of this earth and in this activity
that you will be making soul progress every single day of your
life, rather than be moving backward. You don't have to notice
"Djwal Kul in his Pearl of this week brings
forth some tremendous things. It's short but it's packed with
a lot of wonderful information.
" . . . But the Darjeeling Council has a
view of constructive criticism and all types of criticism. A long
time ago Master Morya, at the close of the alchemy course, wrote
a letter on criticism. When Morya wrote that letter, he thought
he would end all criticism.
"I want to explain to the staff here and
I want to explain to our beloved members here that criticism,
constructive or otherwise, if it could be done without involving
the sinister force, without being seized by the opposition, might
be all right. But it can never be done. And Master Morya
has told me this himself.
"He said you can never bring about criticism
against a person—and he meant
never—without involving the
sinister force, who sit like vultures on a line, like nine old
vulture birds with their beaks sharpened. And they gaze down at
the whole human race. And when they see any form of criticism
coming, one of those birds flies down and seizes that morsel right
there and starts an action. Now, I'm speaking very mystically
but also very practically.
El Morya's Letter Is the Darjeeling Council's Policy for The Summit
"Master Morya has explained this and this
is what I am doing this morning. I am telling you this before
we read the letter so that you will understand this letter. This
letter is the Darjeeling Council's future policy for The Summit
Lighthouse. I want to see you free from this criticism as I want
to see us free from any criticism of you. Not that we have had
criticism of you—we have not
criticized our members. But we could have, naturally, because
no one is perfect. You can always find fault if you want to look
"We would like to see this activity free
at the heart center so that every person that comes in here from
afar to our conferences will say, 'These people are the most wonderful
spiritual people you can find.' But why will they say that? Because
when we are completely free of criticism, then the ascended masters'
currents can flow unimpeded through our world. We will not have
any of the negation that flows in.
"You can't handle negation, dear hearts.
There's not a single person that I can see in this room that is
the master of all negation. None of you can handle it. I mean
none of you if you release it the way Morya talks about it in
this letter. Once you've invoked negation, it's bound to act.
And that's why you simply don't do it."
|Mark L. Prophet
September 13, 1964
"Thus in my final incarnation when I took the dictation from
Jesus and Mother Mary and the Ascended Master Hilarion (who had
been the apostle Paul) to write down these truths, I so inscribed
Science and Health with Key to the Scriptures and other writings
whereby those souls in transition who could equate both with the
unreality of matter and with the necessity for a concrete existence
might find the door and the way out.
"I can tell you, beloved, these writings,
like many other teachings and expressions of the mysteries of
God that have been categorized as metaphysics, have surely opened
doors to those of a spiritual consciousness who did have within
themselves the gift of Christhood and a threefold flame and who
were at that place of longing that precedes the soul's transiting
beyond these material spheres.
"But in the hands of those of only a physical
awareness, this teaching has become an orthodoxy shrouded in the
limitations of their own minds. Therefore it has become a dogma.
And it has become a prison house for some. And those without the
Holy Spirit have not been able to succeed in applying this truth
to the victory of their souls but, in fact, in its misapplication
have made serious karma as they have denied medical assistance
and care to those in need. Thus the dilemma, beloved, of being
a scribe for God and a reformer and of bringing to the forefront
truths with which the many are ill-equipped to deal.
"Not so [with] my sister Martha, who stands
before you. For she did receive this word even at the same level
in which I received it when I wrote it, when she began to read
this textbook at the age of nine. And therefore she could be God-taught
by Jesus in these mysteries and encompass and understand even
the heavenly hosts and reincarnation and karma and what was really
[meant] when I wrote, "There is no life, truth, intelligence
nor substance in matter. . .
"And thus, by and by her inner walk with
me (as I was then ascended), and with Jesus and Mary and Paul,
brought her to the conclusion that those who in this world [and]
in this life controlled the spreading abroad of Christian Science,
the publication of what I gave forth, did not have a chalice big
enough to hold what these truths hold.
"Thus I remained to comfort and to teach
her, not without hope that one day she could bring forth the true
understanding of these mysteries. For in their true understanding,
beloved, they have also given to her strength and vision and the
absolute belief in the absolute God. The faith you have seen in
this Messenger, then, is based on the knowledge within of the
inner geometry of God and the inner science of Being.
" . . . I wrote the question:
"What is the scientific statement of being?
"And the answer:
"There is no life, truth, intelligence,
nor substance in matter. All is infinite Mind and its infinite
manifestation, for God is All-in-all. Spirit is immortal Truth;
matter is mortal error. Spirit is the real and eternal; matter
is the unreal and temporal. Spirit is God, and man is His image
and likeness. Therefore man is not material; he is spiritual.
"This is a formula of healing that is complete
when understood. But when not understood, it becomes a denial
of the very physical existence and the platform of material evolution
that is indeed necessary to the soul and is indeed 'real' so long
as the soul requires this wavelength, this vibration.
"Thus, [some] Christian Science practitioners
have used this almost in a mental malpractice, denying that anything
imperfect [has existence at all], denying that matter itself [has
existence], with the result that by their will they have prevented
karma [i.e., imperfection] from manifesting and unwittingly postponed
the day of the soul's dealing with that karma, [that imperfection];
[moreover, they have] denied the necessity of pain [and they have]
denied the necessity
of suffering, and therefore [they have] denied pain and suffering
itself as a condition of matter.
" . . . There are any number of embodiments
that I had between that two thousand years from the time of Mary
of Bethany to the time of Mary Baker Eddy. And during these centuries
I myself passed through the initiations with the saints in the
Church and even in the East and did study under the great Lights
[as I] prepared for this mission.
"Therefore, beloved, I studied under those
who gave me the teachings of the control of Nature and natural
forces. And I was gifted, by the grace of God, whereby through
this teaching and writing [of Christian Science] many were healed.
But it was truly by the grace of God and my oneness with Christ
Jesus, even as the beloved Aimee Semple McPherson was the instrument
of Jesus' healing and his Holy Spirit. Though neither one of us
had the full outer understanding of what was taking place as he
healed through us, yet many were converted to our respective churches
and faith and remain there to this day.
"They must be liberated into the higher
walk with God. Yet these above all do resist this Path and Truth.
May you pray therefore for the binding of all erroneous misinterpretations
of Christ's true doctrine. And may you call for the binding of
the planetary dweller-on-the-threshold that affects all churches
and all churchgoers.
"My presence with you today is that I might
transfer to you at the soul level and at the level of your Holy
Christ Self this cube of Light that contains the understanding
of the science of Truth and
the true Divine Science, which, when you have it at inner levels,
becomes a profound strength and foundation for all that you are
carrying forward. And the teaching in this activity is, of course,
a science in itself.
"I come with a comforting rod of Wisdom,
which I offer to John the Beloved, that Love and Wisdom might
assist you as you must come now to the place, each and every one,
[of] facing your Atlantean karma and [dealing] with the [karmic]
cycles of April 23; [in order to be successful, you must] directly
challenge all misuses of Power. With Wisdom and with Love you
can do this, beloved.
"May you understand that in the past many
have had Power and have abused it and therefore [they] must submit
in time and in some sense of the word to those who may yet be
abusing Power [in order] to learn the lessons of being on the
receiving end [of such abuses] and then to work together [with
them] in Love and Mercy and Divine Justice and Wisdom for the
true [and righteous] exercise of authority when it is given.
"All organizations and institutions must
have individuals with varying levels of authority, beloved. El
Morya has stated wisely that there are no perfect leaders. Many
may be tyrants. The perfect leader is no longer found in this
world, for the perfect leader is truly Christ the Lord. And when
the leader becomes that Christ, that leader is not long for this
world except by very special dispensation.
"Thus, beloved, whether or not this Church
Universal and Triumphant, [including] its branches in Teaching
Centers and Study Groups, does continue to thrive and to grow
and to expand depends on [an] enlightened leadership that is full
of compassion and the Holy Spirit and that is careful before the
power and the authority that is given not to abuse it and not
to crush new souls on the Path.
"I pray that you pray for the leader
within you to rise up and take dominion and that you surrender
to that leader and to that law and to the justice, which is absolute
and unerring, of your own karmic condition."
"As we consider the practical meaning of a purified heart,
we must conclude that the universal manifestation of purity of
heart would solve most of the problems of the individual and the
world collectively. Our gift, then, this year, at this season,
when the word 'sweetheart' is on many lips, is allegiance to the
power of love as opposed to the opposite pole, that of hatred
or mild dislike.
"We cannot doubt that in this world of
form, mortal thought and feeling may, from time to time, bear
certain justifiable disgust with the trends of the times and with
attitudes prevalent to those whose lives are not orientated around
divine ideals. However, we must be consistent in our
reverence for energy and its economy and bear in mind that each
moment indulged in the subtle or obvious manifestations of criticism
is a waste of the economy of life, for out of imperfection one
cannot give birth to perfection.
"The understanding of holy wisdom permits
men to undertake certain measurements of the fruits of selfhood
without portraying sordid images by acting out the part of unwanted
conditions. Purification of the basic structure of life is essential.
Although perfection and the divine ideal are ever present within
man in the flame of Life that beats his heart, the Great Law requires
the conscious direction of the will so that subconscious imagings
which might otherwise turn consciousness downward are stripped
of their sheaths of impurity and transformed into shafts of light
to raise the individual, the planetary body, and all life thereon.
"If freedom has meaning, then it must be
embodied by all. Justice requires that freedom be honored, but
freedom requires a recompense for justice. So frequently, blessed
ones, we find that individuals indulge in a criticism of others
in order to exonerate themselves from the same or a similar offense.
Now, whether we deal with the laity or the spiritual priesthood,
it must be with a view to raising the level of Christly manifestation
"Through the centuries the almost anemic
manifestation of spiritual ideals by those who again and again
have tasted and spurned cosmic opportunity has been contrasted
by the ruddy expansion of all that serves the ever-fattening human
"The sharp dangers of the ever-present
hour surround mankind today with the fleeting ghosts of their
own past errors. If we are ever to transmute these errors and
to raise men into the wonders of the golden age, it must be by
reason of man's hidden spiritual hungers satisfied. So long as
spiritual brothers, so-called, wage war against those supposedly
pursuing the same ideal, we cannot expect that the bond of unity
which the Brotherhood requires shall fashion for them a vessel
for the containment of the one right essence which will effectively
communicate to all the perennial need to end spiritual and mortal
pride, raising the heart as a beautiful chalice to the great white
throne of God, there to partake of his essential humility who,
in the manifest Christ, being found in fashion as a man, humbled
himself and became obedient, even unto death.
"There are those whom men feel deserve
to die, but we would raise all unto life that none of those in
whom the Father has vested the mighty threefold flame of life
should ever be lost. Take hope, then, for the spiritual forces
of the planet are marshaling themselves as never before to rally
around our banner of complete freedom from every oppression, self-imposed
or projected from the ignorant, who 'know not what they do.' The
hour is at hand when the Christ must, as the great Comforter,
unite hearts and hands in a thrust to end all thrusts and struggle.
'Except the Lord keep the city, the watchman waketh but in vain.'
Can Babylon be transformed to become the New Jerusalem? Can the
sinner become the saint? Can freedom flourish? We shall see as
to what response we evoke.

"There is never any need whatsoever for humanity to turn
against one another, as did Cain against Abel, in the fear that
they have not or will not receive an equal share of the Father's
love. All activities of criticism and condemnation are destructive,
and they lead inevitably toward a violent climax. The way to
real peace in the world for every nation, both at home and abroad,
is to amplify the concept of the abundant life.
"Peace is best preserved by adhering to
the principles of freedom; for freedom is also
tolerant of the thoughts and ideals of others, even when those
thoughts and ideals are based on an incomplete understanding of
the laws of God. But the exercise of tolerance does forgo for
any man his right to attempt—not
by argument, but by an objective presentation of fact—the
correction of his brother's error.
"The members of the Great White Brotherhood
are concerned that the principle of harmony be found in operation
upon earth. In order to further that end midst the struggles of
the masses for economic equality, we would point out that for
generations there have been those who have, in effect, taken the
vow of poverty and who have eschewed the accumulation of wealth.
"To them poverty itself has become a virtue;
on the other hand, many follow the way of poverty simply because
they are unwilling to make the effort to do a great work in the
world. They lack either the capacity or the will to create for
themselves an abundant life. Both should understand that the laws
of love are best practiced and mastered from within."

" . . . If the supreme purpose be held by each splintered part
of the Divine Identity, does not the whole manifest through that
splintered part because it holds the immaculate concept for itself
and for all others? And if that individual part of the whole shall
sustain within consciousness a distorted picture of another part,
does it not 'successfully' screen from the eyes of that individual
the wondrous beholding of the immaculate concept of God in all of
its many-splendored shinings?"
May 26, 1963
"In the earthly lives of all mankind countless opportunities
are offered to hold, sustain and expand all the God-purity which
was a part of the first sacred fire breath initiating and outpouring
life in the sphere of individual consciousness. One of the reasons
why individuals seldom do take full advantage of these many opportunities
is because they do not fully understand the meaning of God-purity.
"So often mankind have misqualified many
sacred matters which by all divine intent were created to be holy
and wholly God's with some of their own misgivings concerning
is often based on a pseudo-puritanical understanding—without
ever considering or taking time 'to be holy!'
"The apostle Peter once had a vision in
which he saw many unclean creeping and crawling things, 'Let down
in a sheet' and heard a voice saying, 'Rise Peter, slay and eat!'
Peter replied, 'Not so, Lord, for I have never eaten anything
common or unclean.' The voice replied, 'That which God has cleansed
that call not thou common or unclean!'
"Know therefore that grave danger exists
in 'feeding' the condemnatory forces of the world. Self-righteousness
is so subtle that it often permits one saint to find fault with
another without qualms of conscience. The words concerning blessed
Jesus—'The Son came not into
the world to condemn the world, but that through him they might
find eternal Life,' contain the true eternal purpose so clearly
stated yet often forgotten when people begin the impurity of gossip
or condemnation concerning some other part of life.
"Be dispensers of life to others by calling
for perfection and God-purity wherever you see it is needed. If
it is already there, call for its expansion! Now, the best way,
blessed eternal hearts, to do this is to do it for all life—starting
Call to the Fire Breath
"I AM I AM I AM the fire breath of God from
the heart of beloved Alpha and Omega. This day I AM the immaculate
concept in expression everywhere I move! Now I AM full of joy
for now I AM the full expression of divine love.
"My beloved I AM Presence seal me now within
the very heart of the expanding fire breath of God; let its purity,
wholeness and love manifest everywhere I AM today and forever!
"I accept this done right now with full
power; I AM this done right now with full power. I AM I AM I AM
God-Life expressing perfection all ways at all times! This which
I call forth for myself, I call forth for every man, woman and
child on this planet! (3x)
"Intolerance of intolerance is but another shadow on the
pathway to spiritual harmony. Because these laws are so practical
I am pointing out to men and women who desire to know 'little
ways' in which you can protect yourself against criticism, condemnation
and judgment—which are very
human qualities. Divine purity and love are not Pollyanna, but
they plainly say, 'Neither do I condemn thee—go
and sin no more!'
"The straightened shoulders, the stronger
heart, the clearer eye of divine vision ever point the way to
bearing one another's burdens by the bond of eternal understanding.
This subdivision of the load makes 'my burden 'light!' This is
God's way, this is the way of the Brotherhood. All have erred
in earth's spheres, yet the Master's admonishment 'Love one another'
must be fulfilled. It is the way of forgiveness, the divine catharsis
of heaven's light of God-purity and mercy!

To Our Gracious Readers Dedicated to Love's Service the World
As the sweep of my consciousness moves at times with the rapidity
of a swift jet plane and then again in slower motion as the gentle
soaring of a white dove over the entire land of America and the
inhabited portions of all the world, I cannot but observe the
parallel contrasts in climate and consciousness, all the way from
a snow-clad purity to faded brown and then again to those brighter
verdures of redundant green.
This pattern repeats also in human consciousness
from the relatively barren personality of some lifestreams to
the magnificent loveliness ensouled in those nearing the perfection
we knew just previous to our own ascension. I am ever-so-sure
after each such scanning trip, that I can feel more and more the
real love and compassion of a Cosmic Mother while still serving
as a spiritual sister to all humanity for the express purpose
of assisting all who will call for my service with my own dear
God-momentum of a very personal impersonal love—whose
reality can easily be proven by calling to me to daily share with
you my feeling of universal love which will be invaluable help
to free this precious planet and all its people!
The magnificent Darjeeling Council has so graciously
honored me by choosing to release through my love on this occasion,
the first of a current series of most candid advices which may
well be forthcoming through this channel to the students and chelas
of the Great White Brotherhood the world around.
Many of the blessed members of that Council have
expressed their views that regardless of our ever constant service
of releasing great light in the past and clarification for mankind
of the laws of life expressed in most diplomatic language, still
our message of love may not always cut through the human consciousness
of mankind to convey our intended thought because of the molasses-like
density of human consciousness which sometimes lacks the finer
understanding of the more subtle and delicate spiritual laws expressing
as they do in almost featherweight perfect response to balance.
Thus our love which is so forthright in the full
richness of its intent—to bless
you with all of Freedom—may
fall a little short of the mark in either its aim of deterring
you from committing an error or inspiring and comforting you by
the vision of that potent truth which alone can make you
So often individuals call for us to step through
the veil and O, how we would love to do so (and at present may
do so on some occasions) but I must say to those blessed seeking
ones: remember you may not know what ye ask. For, in addition
to the shock to your vehicles of expression—which
presently vibrate far below the rate of our vibratory action—were
we to manifest by physically stepping through the veil, to many
a deep etheric record would be made and again there may be a somewhat
severe penalty attached to those who when they are afforded such
a glimpse of immortality as we embody, do not immediately respond
by fully dedicating their all to that love which descends to so
This, dearly beloved, is an impersonal action
of the Law, for perfection is called down solely to raise life
into its glory, not [to] entertain or mystify the human!
Ascended beings and great Masters abide most
often in solitude, after a fashion, (as has been done in the past)
or seek the company of their own shining band. Then too, the unpredictable
human when face to face with another's living divinity, has often
been prone to cry 'why I don't see perfection there.' And gazing
thus at a sacred form appearing simply as flesh, they direct criticism
at perfection unknowingly and have often found out much later
that they had a great deal more to handle than they had bargained
for or knew in their outward consciousness. Do you see?
We urge both those tutored and untutored in
the Law to be alike—slow to
speak of that imperfection they may see or think they see in the
life of another even if their senses may declare it! In such matters
call the Holy Christ Self into action to exercise love's discrimination
which is Ascended-Master God-determination to purify all life
they contact by violet fire, removing the cause and core of all
human misery and all mankind's can also be your own to also treasure
—does manifest in your flesh
as the highest endowment of Almighty God who ever seeks to bestow
the grace of a humble heart whose vows to serve made at inner
levels, in some cases between embodiments, go not neglected in
the present day but whose feelings of love are never conditioned
by human responses but instead take their cue from the Master
who gracefully directs—using
the baton of Holy Harmony that ever keeps the rhythm in that perfect
balance which such embodied love is-ever inviolate before all
as Christ's eternal flame of Love Divine!

"Gossip has been the seed to undo entire households,
families, nations, and friends of long-standing. And it
is recorded in the annals of the Brotherhood that it has
taken place even in the previous incarnations of this
community. Let light prevail and not the tail of the dragon
that comes in tales many times told that have naught to
do with truth or the everlasting proof of our witness
and our blessing upon the messengers, and the dispensation,
and upon every one of you who are tied to our heart by
the chelaship on the Path."
"The world turmoil is presently very great, but ever so
much greater is the reason why men should overcome the sinister
thoughts of condemnation and judgment which may be beamed at
them. Awaken, Dear Ones, to realize that if you have a mite
of error within you, the sinister will try to amplify it by
self-condemnation and by the criticism and judgment of others.
In this way two or more fall victim at once to the force of
malice, the one by judging and the other by accepting the judgment
of another. Self-criticism too can be a trap to which the honest
heart sometimes falls prey.
"Blessed Ones, God has not designed you
in imperfection and it is the Reality of your God Self which has
Eternal Life. All which belongs to sin, suffering and death is
a part of the Adamic race which, through Divine Law, is transformed
by Christ Grace and salvation without end. Truly, they who BELIEVE
in the REALITY of GOD, of CHRIST, and of LIGHT, shining through
all density, will be saved from 'the arrow that flieth by day'
and 'the pestilence that walketh in darkness!'

"In the holy Christian mysteries,
as they stand revealed to modern disciples today, it is well
known and understood that the body of misqualified substance,
in which men have abode far too long, must be laid aside, together
with old encrusted hates, viciousness, criticism, and vanity
in self. In their place, the mind of Christ, the new heaven,
must hold sway upon a new earth of their being composed of spiritual
substance embodying the power to draw together the atoms of
a regenerated physical form.
"I earnestly urge all students of the true
light of God to consider the far-reaching influence of their own
thoughts and feelings. Watch the quality of the 'children of your
thoughts,' the subtle influences emanating from your individualized
focus of being, bear them high that they may draw to you always
the enfolding radiance of the perfume of the pink rose of Christ
devotion to the Father on high. Let this spiritual offering, placed
on the altar of every cell of your being, invoke the majesty of
such love as shall turn aside the odoriferous release of low human
thought and feeling vibrations and in their place give forth great
assistance to all life.
"Every atom of my son Jesus' being was
consecrated to God: he kept a steadfast attunement with love's
majesty in the face of the most terrible conditions. What he has
done you can do, for the selfsame glory that he manifested is
within thee, one and all. This must be invoked sternly
—yet without defiance; calmly—yet
with determination; fervently—yet
in unutterable sweetness."
January 3, 1964
The magnificent statement 'Judge not, that ye be not judged,'
when applied, becomes a great safety valve of protection to the
Countless followers of Christ audibly support
his great admonition, but when it comes to daily practice they
continue to express criticism, condemnation, and judgment in a
most brittle, mechanical manner. They do not take into account
the recorded debit to their lifestream for such acts and the resulting
energy which can become an oppressive weight when it returns to
them for balance.
Efforts made by students of the light to overcome
this propensity to be critical of others, when successful, have
many rewards. Thus the ascended masters have from time to time
discussed this teaching so that the student might gain perspective
in the practical application of this great
law. I cannot tell you how much the willful neglect of this law
and the consequent wrong use of energy have hindered the seeker
on the spiritual path.
Many students know that some individuals, in
ignorance, do not hesitate to criticize the Godhead and to impugn
the motives of heaven. Be not surprised, then, if some will seem
to take pleasure in unjustly criticizing or judging you. Remember
that the ascended masters aim for the highest expression of blessing
to mankind; therefore, our actions always pivot around light and
cannot support the shadowed concepts of the mass mind, no matter
how acceptable these concepts may seem to be.
Saint Germain has tried for centuries to make
all people aware of true freedom; yet to the present, the recoil
of their own error is experienced by those who affirm for themselves
the freedom to act while denying the same privilege to others.
Mankind's double standard of judgment would be most unwelcome
if those who practice it were to become the victims of this duplicity.
Let it be known that wherever we establish a
focus of great light, wherever there are true, dedicated chelas
whose thoughts and actions are providing avenues of service for
the ascended masters, sinister arrows of negation derived from
psychic levels are projected against these focuses to hinder the
expression of truth and to deny mankind the full benefit of our
intent to expand the flame of freedom.
The Tall Master from Venus, in his great service
to life, has continually poured out from the energies of his heart
the God-victorious flame of freedom. It is unfortunate that many
take the energies of heaven and color them with human concepts
and shallow attitudes. If the ascended masters were to manifest
physically and to appear in human form to mankind, many of the
very ones who claim to be our chelas would totally reject us.
Such as these admire us from afar as if peering at a distant star
through a telescope of their own creation; but, unknown to them,
they could not take us in proximity.
I understand this dichotomy, having functioned
in your dimension, but I cannot condone any attitude that will
not win you your freedom. The Master's statement "Inasmuch
as ye have done it unto one of the least of these my brethren,
ye have done it unto me" ought to be applied by all
separatists who consider themselves our brethren and receive our
messages, acknowledging the truth thereof while denying our messengers
who offer the physical vehicles through which we function.
Mankind are prone to stereotype one another
and sometimes, when students do not personally know our messengers,
they place them upon a pedestal of high spiritual attainment.
When they later come in contact with these blessed ones and note
that outwardly they have an appearance similar to their contemporaries
and perhaps no exterior posture which would serve to gild them
with the image created, students sometimes devalue our representatives
and shatter the towering image which they had held previously.
Remember the Roman legions required Judas' service
in order to distinguish Jesus from his disciples in Gethsemane's
garden.) Not desiring to accept responsibility for their own fluctuating
assessments, people have often transferred their disappointments
and disaffections to those whom they once glorified and subsequently
cast down as broken idols when their own uses were not served.
Let it be clear that it is not in the outer
realm that men and women of goodwill ought to make value judgments
concerning their fellowmen. I think that I have no difficulty
in distinguishing between the true and the false, hence I can
easily perceive the degree of spiritual radiance in all its glory
pouring through their flesh forms. I think, however, that even
presently I should cringe at the thought of being judged, and
yet I am sure you realize this is not fear of man's criticism
or opinion but rather solicitude for the individual who is guilty
of this error.
You may wonder just how all this fits the mechanical
dissertation which I am engaged in. In a very real sense this
discourse fits quite nicely. For mankind have developed a deep
set of stereotyped and acceptable values which they carefully
preserve as in a closet, drawing them forth periodically and inserting
these 'hardbacked cards' into a stereopticon for recurrent viewing.
Thus criticism has become a parlor game in which men amuse themselves
at the expense of others, not realizing that by so doing they
widen the moat that separates them from the great divine realities
of life. Why review evil when you can amplify the power of good!
Stereotyping has become very mechanical. Civilization
finds it only too easy to assassinate the character and service
of our best servants. We have noted in cosmic history that wherever
we have established focuses for the freedom of man, the powers
of intolerance have attempted malicious devaluation before men.
This includes the circulation of partial truths, lies, and fabrications.
And the struggling few, not always securely rooted in an understanding
of the dangers in the battle of life, are sometimes unhorsed.
Now, I could tell you of a number of individuals
who have received great healings and blessings to almost defy
description through the radiant Word delivered by our messengers.
Some of these individuals have been released from what we may
term astral states so fearsome as to be more awesome than the
descriptions in Dante's Inferno. Yet when some of our most dedicated
channels were under vicious attack from the forces of darkness,
some of our modern disciples, as did those in the time of Jesus,
have in effect denied their Lord by desiring anonymity before
men. These would not stand up and be counted on the side of righteousness
and truth for fear of earthly censure.
Let me remind you here and now of the Master's
statement "Whosoever shall deny me before men, him will I
also deny before my Father." You do not think, precious ones,
that this was a threat made by the Christ. Nay, rather was it
a statement of the great law itself. At times the law may seem
to be almost mechanically harsh, yet I assure you it is not. For
as the sweetest promises of God, the mighty law stands to protect
the soul interests of the obedient, who garner from the opportunities
daily afforded them a greater measure of service and benign karmic
credit because they have determined to retain the immaculate concept
of man, sustained in the image of his Creator, in all they do,
say, or think.
Now examining the statements of Christ still
further, you will note that he also said that those who would
confess him before men he would confess before the Father! Confession
of Christ, then, is the use of his immaculate eyes in beholding
the inherent good in God's children. Mother Mary specifically
trained Jesus from childhood on in the sacred visualization of
good for every part of life.
The seemingly innocent practice of holding wrong
concepts about others, of judging others, of assessing their level
of attainment or possibility is all a part of vain competition
and results in grave misunderstandings. You see, when the hidden
hungers of the soul for advancement remain unsatisfied, they sometimes
burst out as unbalanced energy which takes the form of gossip
and the downgrading of others as a substitute for inner God-security.
It is most unfortunate that this battle of the
human psyche is carried over into the science of religion, for
men expect perfection in their religion and its followers. Herein
lies the very subtle activities of the brothers of the shadow
who seek to impugn the pure in heart by drawing down the pall
of ignorance, confusion, and questioning about the person and
character of another. Some of this is like taking out old photo
albums and prints reflecting earlier immaturities and showing
these 'snapshots' or 'snap judgments' to others and saying, 'See
how they really are!' While the great divine opportunity called
life moves onward, men attempt to methodically yet mechanically
thwart the progress of another soul and, by the law of returning
karma, do but hinder their own progress.
Let go, precious ones, for all time of this
seemingly innocent but deadly game. Those who will may practice
it, but they will reap the full results of their acts. Men use
a mechanical, stereotyped image for others but not for themselves.
I am sure that the wiles and snares of Satan, so-called, will
be apparent to those who can attune with our level of thought.
We would institute for mankind a new era of freedom from this
practice that will encourage the use of the immaculate concept,
thus drawing into a state of spiritual elevation many priceless
souls who hunger and thirst after righteousness.
Let them be filled, then, with the germinal
realities of life that will bear spiritual fruit. Let them draw
upon their great spiritual resources and rise into the arms of
Divine Hope. Let these captives of human illusion go free and
find no further barrier to their attainment. Let the blot upon
the honor of spiritual organizations cast by these evil practitioners
be heeded no more and let it be replaced with the shield of faith
in the integrity of the Creator of all who, beholding his creation,
saw that it was very good.
Many of the statements I am making may seem
simple, but they hold the sacred keys to your freedom, precious
ones. I have in readiness revelations far up the ladder of soul
advancement, and I am awaiting the opportune moment to release
them. But the great gap in achievement for all organizations seems
to be in the clouds that obscure at the personal level the summits
of Olympian heights, the great snow-crowned peaks of godly virtue
and benevolence which should rightfully be the inheritance of
'With what measure ye mete, it shall be
measured to you again.' Why will men then presume that the Deity
desires to mete out evil to any? Is it not clearly recorded, 'I
have no pleasure in the death of the wicked?' Then, height nor
depth nor things present, nor things to come, nor any
creature shall be able to separate man from the love of God which
is in Christ, the Light of the world.
Precious ones, your ascension is not always
achieved in one dramatic moment wherein the form is transfigured
and you rise into the arms of God. Attainment is often a matter
of the conscious practice of daily entering into the heart of
the Father and thinking his thoughts, dreaming his dreams of benevolence,
partaking of his life and breaking the bread of his holy covenant
with your brethren so that their hearts may also burn within them
as the disciples experienced upon the way to Emmaus.
Charity begins at home. And therefore, I say
to all, let us by grace develop the acme of cosmic virtue in all
as we discard mechanical ignorance.
Lovingly, I AM

Slayers of the Lamb of God
To Those Waiting upon the Lord Who Cometh with
Fan in Hand
to Thoroughly Purge His Floor:
The beauty of the God-design in all creation
bears witness to the perfect concept held by God for every man.
As a point of spiritual discernment, the students
of Light ought to examine carefully the activities of the spoilers,
so-called by reason of their immature conduct and their alliance
with the powers of darkness, who utter unfounded statements against
the laborers in the Father's vineyard.
He who said, "Ye shall know the Truth,
and the Truth shall make you free" also spoke these words:
"By their fruits ye shall know them." While we advocate
that the student of cosmic law become as harmless as a dove, flooded
with the milk of human kindness tethered to divine kindness, we
also advocate that he should learn to be wise—even
wiser than a serpent—in this
era of great social cleavage when the hearts of men are nigh failing
them for fear.
Saint Paul referred to those who become hypercritical
of individuals and organizations dedicated to the beautiful purposes
of God, saying, "There are many unruly and vain talkers and
deceivers, whose mouths must be stopped, who subvert whole houses,
teaching things which they ought not, for filthy lucre's sake."
Let the students of Light understand, then, that unfortunate though
it may be, there are those who move among the brethren, professing
that they come in the name of God, who participate in evil rituals
of gossip and slander and thereby tie themselves at inner levels
to forces not of the Light. A word of explanation is due from
our level to those sincere students who desire to know the truth
about the deceivers.
It was recorded by John in the Book of Revelation,
"The accuser of our brethren is cast down, which accused
them before our God day and night." This passage refers to
those fallen angels who were cast out of heaven and, for reasons
best known to the Lords of Karma, were sent into embodiment to
balance their karma among the very ones upon earth they had sought
to overcome from their astral vantage. "Clouds they are without
water," noted Saint Jude, "wandering stars, to whom
is reserved the blackness of darkness for ever." The presence
of individuals upon the planetary body who espouse the cause of
darkness should therefore come as no surprise to the students
of Light. Let them be wary, then, of such as these; and let them
see to it that they never underestimate the evil intent of these
wolves in sheep's clothing!
Their modus operandi requires an explanation,
and I shall give it. First let me say that the reason that the
tactic of criticism, condemnation, and judgment is used by the
evil powers upon this planet is that it has proved successful
in "subverting whole houses" and turning individuals
against the Light of the Christ. The chastisement of the devotees
of Truth by those who
brazenly speak out against their Light is a token and a symbol
of their un-Christlike state of consciousness. These slayers of
the Lamb of God shall certainly give account for what they do;
and those who heed them will find themselves caught in a web of
darkness spun by those who have misappropriated the divine energy
and entered into a negative fiat of their own egocentric creation.
As you know, energy released from God or man
is girded into spirals that begin with a circle, or cycle, and
then rise in the form of a cone or a cylinder. When misqualified
by incorrect thought and feeling processes in man, these spirals,
eddying upward, become charged with negative magnetism, which,
like a cyclone, carries its own vortex of destructive energy.
When this vortex of charged hatred comes in
contact with the aura of either the new student or the old one
whose faith has never actually been grounded in the rudiments
of Truth, the doubts and questions of an undisciplined mind or
an untutored heart may cause him to be receptive to a word of
seemingly well-intended caution from another. Quite naturally,
we expect that even the highest things of the Spirit will be placed
under scrutiny by those who are unfamiliar with the teachings
of the Masters, inasmuch as they have not experienced the Truth
for themselves and have no a priori evidence to confirm what they
Over the thread of the attention, then, the
vortex is transferred from the aura of the speaker to that of
the listener; in a flash there is a release of the crimson and
black substance of criticism, condemnation, and judgment, which
leaps the gap between monads or even between groups and quickly
subdues the enthusiasm, the joy, and the great impulses of Love
and Truth with which the Masters have imbued the innocent of heart.
I would like to point out that in their appraisal
of one another, individuals are capable of seeing in a given moment
only a small portion of the total life record. Through the bias
of a partial assessment it is easy to overlook the radiant good
that has flowed through a lifestream. Nevertheless, when someone
raises an eyebrow concerning the integrity of a servant of God,
those who are yet unsure of their ability to evaluate the situation
may allow their own minds to enter the limited frame of reference
of the critical observer. Thus they forget that there is undoubtedly
more to the spectrum of the devotee's service than meets the eye;
and they even
forget the virtue that they themselves may have witnessed in the
life of the one in question.
Absorbing, then, the negative concepts of the
condemner, those who lend their ears to ungodly conversation are
no longer in a position of judging righteous judgment. Failing
to realize that they may lose their faculties of discernment by
even listening to gossip, they become the unwitting victims of
a hypnotic influence, a magnetic forcefield, that spews from the
aura of the betrayer as a smoke screen of deception. And if they
are not wary, little by little this forcefield will permeate their
entire consciousness until at last they cast all their hopes into
a sea of bitterness and discouragement.
These are among the most important and more
obvious reasons why Saint Germain has so often admonished the
students of the Light to avoid the criticism, condemnation, and
judgment of individuals and their activities. There are other
reasons involving karma and the second death which I shall not
go into at this time: suffice it to say that the return to the
sender of such virulent energies directed against the children
of God is fraught with grave danger. Knowing this law, the Master
said: "Whoso shall offend one of these little ones which
believe in me, it were better for him that a millstone were hanged
about his neck, and that he were drowned in the depth of the sea.
Woe unto the world because of offences! for it must needs be that
offences come; but woe to that man by whom the offence cometh!"
Then there are those who are overly cautious
and carry their reserve to an extreme. Let them not forget that
God has given man the faculty of spiritual discernment through
the Christ Self and the Threefold Flame within the heart. You
therefore have the divine authority to discern the fruit of the
Spirit in the lives of others, to apprise yourself of what is
right and what is wrong, to shun evil, and to expose its lie wherever
manifest. But when you exercise this right, you should do so impersonally
and with humility-sitting not in the seat of the scornful, but
ever beholding the Reality of the Christ in those who have temporarily
come under a sinister influence. Jesus said, "Judge not,
that ye be not judged"; therefore, you must beware to judge
not the individual, whose heart only the Lord doth know, but his
fruits; for by his fruits you shall know what is acting in his
world and with what forces he has aligned his consciousness.
It should always be remembered that "the
fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, longsuffering, gentleness,
goodness, faith, meekness, temperance: [for] against such there
is no law." Motives and acts that ignite hatred, strife,
sorrow, confusion, agitation, and antagonism among brethren should
be recognized for what they are. "Doth a fountain send forth
at the same place sweet water and bitter?" These thorns never
emanate from the Christ Consciousness of the Rose of Sharon, but
from the consciousness that has aligned itself with the forces
Those who truly love God will make calls to
The Karmic Board for the illumination of those whose energies
have been darkened by denigratory deeds. However, the fact remains
that there are those who in the present and forseeable future
cannot be expected to respond to the outpourings of Light which
the children of God invoke; for by nature they are concerned only
with the personal self and its aggrandizement.
Out of their ignorance of the Great Law and
their jealousy of other parts of Life, those whose minds are bent
by the perverseness of selfish concern, who will not cease to
analyze the faults of their neighbors, cannot hope to understand
the meaning of the abundant Life lived in God until they have
shed the snakeskin of their personal identity pattern. In the
vastness of Cosmos there is room for all to develop the fullness
of their soul-potential and, in so doing, to transmute whatever
impedes the flow of Light through them as they become one with
the God-ideal in the truly abundant Life.
In a spirit of constructivism, born out of the
desire to alert and to admonish, we release this report. It would
be most beneficial if all men had the awareness of spirit to discern
not only the signs of the times and the astrological impact thereof
from a cosmic standpoint, but also the sure means of governing
the actions of their world; yet although Heaven has decreed perfection
for man, man has not yet appropriated all of the joy and wonder
God has in store for him.
We advocate a recognition of the fact that whereas
we always espouse the positive, the victorious, the perfect and
complete kingdom of God, we perceive that habits of negation and
energy misqualification formed in childhood and infancy have often
served to cover humanity with an opaquing cloud of illusory substance
that one day will be no more. The living God is neither despot
nor tyrant; His is the highest way. Unfortunately, because of
the nature of human habit, patterns entering the mind from the
earliest years often seem correct when they are not, simply because
of their long acceptance by the mind and feelings.
It is highly improper that students of the Light
should be impugned by those who do not understand that the kingdom
of God is truly within all who will open the door of their hearts
to Love and Light, to peace and joy, to forgiveness and the beautiful
thoughts of others, consciously created and upheld.
He who said, "Bless them that curse you,
and pray for them which despitefully use you" also promised
his flock, "Lo, I AM with you alway, even unto the end of
the world." Certainly the fulfillment of his promise is more
apparent in those kind moments when the magnet of your love for
the ascended Christ, like a fire of living Truth, blazes its noontide
glory throughout the worlds of all you meet regardless of their
level of understanding.
Let honor and truth live. Let the strength of
our Brotherhood expand into a full-blown maturity. Let the students
of the Light be aware not only of the subtleties of the dark powers
but also of the salvation of our God, by whose grace all who follow
in the Master's footsteps shall be raised. There is but one Lord,
and He maketh the sun to shine upon the just and the unjust until
the day of the harvest when the tares are separated from the wheat.
In deepest devotion, I AM
|The Great Divine Director
August 29, 1971
"The cultivating by you of more and more Patience (not only
with one's self but with others of evolving life), as well as
endeavoring constantly to have an understanding heart and be a
comfort to all life, will make you both gracious and graceful
in your expressions of daily living. Then will you be most willing
consciously to call for the violet fire to transmute the causes
and cores of all mistakes of yourself and others. This merciful
violet fire sets all free from the pressures of energy qualified
with criticism, condemnation and judgment, which energies, otherwise,
may continue to build around them until, many times, that pressure
alone may compel a repetition of the same mistakes.
"After all, none unascended are yet
perfected, and true introspection of self- together with the use
of the violet fire-will remove the habit of 'judging according
to appearances' from the chela's world. Thus does the seeker gradually
become more and more master of life through the anchorage of his
greater and greater attunement with his own Holy Christ Self and
the Ascended Host."
February 6, 1959
"You know, dear hearts, whenever opposition is directed at
any person, place, condition or thing because an expression is
manifesting which is negative to the light, the energy used by
the directing one, even though benign often, in stirring the conscious
mind with the best intentions,
almost inevitably raises the human dust of sympathetic attraction
for the one opposed. And the director of the opposition, who always
intended to be both illuminative and protective, is then face
to face with an intensified negative condition. Thus, when we
see a need arise to apprise our chelas of a negative situation,
both beloved Morya and I hesitate in many cases to do so because
of that law.
"However, when we do perceive a heightened
need to speak out, it is always done with Ascended Master gentility
so as not to harm any part of life in a stringent manner but rather
to produce the best opportunity for freedom and good will to all—particularly
that magnificent congregation—the majority of our worthy
students of the I AM Law of Life! I heartily approve of every
act and word which beloved Morya has found necessary, for I feel
no need to remind my readers that every ascended being will only
perform those acts which are in keeping with the highest principles
of divine law and divine love. This has beloved Morya always fulfilled
to the letter and without exception!
"May I also remind that to mankind living
in the world of form, the law itself, even the cosmic laws of
divine justice which are operative on this planet, may seem at
times somewhat harsh. Now, actually there is no callousness present
in the divine law itself, but an ever-present divine
solicitude, and that which may appear severe is but the returning
current of the karmic boomerang of whatever was sent out at some
time by the one upon whom the law may be acting.
" . . . Hence the most cultivated and innate
personal honesty is needed to stand guard twenty-four hours a
day to do battle with self-deceit! The greatest enemy of freedom,
you see, often rises in one's own thinking and feeling world because
of past negative momentums, past mistakes of thought and feeling,
and also sometimes by reason of unrealized aspirations which,
because they are not yet externalized, lead to some feelings of
futility and at times feelings of helplessness which seem to form
a spiritual vacuum during which time the individual tends to be
extremely self-critical and may then vacillate from reason and
truth to a mood whereby the onus of self-criticism is transferred
to another lifestream in the vain human habit of avoiding the
admission of personal failure.
"Dear ones, no one seems to enjoy admitting
to failure, but such admission can be a catharsis of the highest
type, for failure is never permanent if that one will go on toward
overcoming. I failed many times in small ways before my ascension
and when embodied as recently as Francis Bacon it was reported
that I was always just one jump ahead of my creditors!
"This does not mean that I approve of any
injustice to any part of life for I do not, nor does any ascended
being, but imperfection ought not to judge the lot of any other
part of life for the simple reason that it is impossible for any
human consciousness while still unascended and itself imperfect
to know or cognize with absolute certainty the full cosmic law
of another's being without our assistance, do you see? Beloved
ones, when Ascended Master Godfre (then known as Daddy Ballard)
first went out to do the bidding of the ascended host, he was
practically penniless and behind in his rent. But did he let that
stop him? No, I think not, for he pressed forward to his own victory!
This do and live!
"Hope is one of the greatest blessings of God. Now as we
hope only for your highest good, may I say with divine fervor
that we long for a celestial spirit of divine unity to sweep across
the hearts of the students—setting them aflame with our
love, our victory and the power of God-freedom! Today when so
much emphasis is necessarily placed on unity by the ascended host,
as well as by mankind in the outer world who are tired of wars
and dissentions—and understandably so, I hasten to say that
unity does not divide but ever raises all life it contacts without
ever being unkind or critical in its feelings toward any part
"This requires not
only self-control in the accepted sense thereof, but God-Self
control with the power of the Presence moving into action in the
individual's own world. Those who find necessary the constant
tearing down of someone else or something outside of themselves
serve not the cause of freedom, for the fires of freedom would
burn very low if tended by such as these. Freedom's fires burn
only the bands that enslave or bind and then, in the dignity of
freedom, lift on high for all to see and behold the exemplary
image of a noble man or woman. This lovely transcendent effigy
then serves to inspire our dear chelas until, completely free
as we are in the glory of victory's ascension, the race is won!"
