is the path of victory. Know that it is fraught with many dangers.
Keep on the Path, beloved. Do not stray from it. For the Path
will guide you
until you are at home in Divine Love with all whom you have ever
in past incarnations, all the way back to the Beginning, when
you were created
with your twin flame."—Lady
Master Nada Rayborn
"Where there is compromise of the
code of conduct there is crisis.
I tell you, beloved ones, we must withdraw when individuals in
our teaching centers
or study groups do not heed that which is necessary by cosmic
for a standard of life and morality and consecration."—El
Morya, July 4, 1978
"And those who are of the elect
then, let them come up to standard!
Let them be willing to be disciplined!"—Lord Shiva,
March 12, 1978
" . . . This is why in holy orders
there is a certain propriety of order and standards
set forth for the interaction of men and women. It is because
it is known by the Brotherhood
that in all that you do, in all of your decrees, you are transmuting
misuses of the chakras.
And we begin with the base chakra when we deal with life itself,
even as it is the life
of the heart and the threefold flame."
—Mark and Elizabeth Prophet: The Enemy Within, 2004, S.
U. Press, p. 179
"And you must move from the sea
of water to the sea of fire.
Living where you are your safety is to live in the etheric matrix.
This is my all-prevaling message."—Elohim Cyclopea
and Virginia, January 3,1982
"So often in the past endeavors
we have founded have been compromised
because the Mother-flame was violated, for its disciplines were
and therefore not adhered to and its power was not comprehended."
—Saint Germain and El Morya, April 22,1984
276. "Man fears responsibility
and with this he falls into heartlessness.
People tend to accept the concept carrying the least responsibility."
—El Morya, Aum 1936
"He (King Arthur of Camelot days)
saw that the application
of the Spirit of the divine manchild must be in society, in government,
in holy orders and in the internalization of the Word on a path,
a very personal path of individual Christhood forged and won."
—Elizabeth C. Prophet, December 25, 1985
"Beware then the talking about
the Teaching and the living of the Teaching!
Let the doers of the Word then become the Word incarnate! And
let them show forth
that the Teaching is more than conversation!"—Saint
Germain, July 4,1975
" . . . Begin with Self-knowledge.
The first Self-knowledge you must have
is that of your reality. Study it in the Teachings. When you are
grounded in the Self-knowledge of your reality then you must know
the unreal self. Your Self-knowledge
must then be of that unreal self and of that reality. He who knows
both and stands poised
between the two, he who knows how to daily affirm his reality
that will swallow up
his unreality—that one, beloved, is a wise man and a wise
woman and a wise child.
That one call teacher; that one follow."—Gautama Buddha,
"It should be the highest ambition
of every American to extend his views beyond himself,
and to bear in mind that his conduct will not only affect himself,
and his immediate posterity; but that its influence may be co-extensive
with the world,
and stamp political happiness or misery on ages yet unborn."—George
"Love is to subdue the self and
turn to courtesy."—Confucius: Analects, 12
"Character is like a tree and reputation
like a shadow.
The shadow is what we think of it; the tree is the real thing."
—President Abraham Lincoln
"The principle that the end justifies
the means is in individualist ethics regarded
as the denial of all morals. In collectivist ethics it becomes
the supreme rule."—economist and philosopher Fredrich
August von Hayek (1899-1992)
"We must not suppose that even
if we succeeded in making everyone nice
we should have saved their souls. A world of nice people, content
in their own niceness,
looking no further, turned away from God, would be just as desperately
in need of salvation
as a miserable world—and might even be more difficult to
save. For mere improvement
is no redemption, though redemption always improves people even
here and now and will,
in the end, improve them to a degree we cannot yet imagine."—C.S.
"A man's manners are a mirror in
which he shows his portrait."
—Johann Wolfgang von Goethe
"Employment gives health, sobriety
Constant employment and well-paid labor produce general prosperity,

you should run for your life."—Henry David Thoreau
“Conscience is God Present in
"May you live in interesting times."—the
ancient Chinese saying
" . . . The Lord God, even Alpha and Omega, comes as the proverbial
thief in the night for the testing of souls at any hour. And these
tests must be passed at the level of Christhood, not at the level
of the human consciousness of compromise that says: 'This is our
standard. This is our human standard and it is right, and we will
have our own code of honor among ourselves.' And yet it is a tarnished
honor, beloved ones."

"However, blessed ones, I tell you, without the Light you will
see that one is taken and another is left. And those who have the
Light and diligently follow the calling of Serapis Bey to attend
those three services a week that comprise Morya’s three dots
and the three plumes of your threefold flame, they will know that
the banking of the fires cell by cell, they will know that the charging
of the aura, the fasting, the self-emptying and the infilling with
Light will see them through in the end of Darkness unto the beginning
" . . . I say to you then that the
ascended master code of conduct that shall be presented for your
study and that shall be enacted by the Mother of the Flame for
the university is the very same code of conduct that was delivered
into the hand of Moses, the precepts of the Law that were delivered
in the Sermon on the Mount, and the teachings that have come forth
through the Buddha and the hierarchies of heaven. You will not
be asked to submit to any discipline that has not already been
present in our retreats for thousands of years.
"And yet some of you question whether
or not you should sign your application for want of seeing those
disciplines. Where is your faith in Hierarchy? Where is your faith,
I say? Do you not understand that the Law is impersonal and that
it is impersonally applied and that if you place yourself in the
hands of God and work His works and do His will, you have nothing
"This is indeed the age of fearlessness; and I promise you
that when you place yourself in the hands of our representatives
on earth and in heaven you will be treated royally, as kings and
priests unto God. But you must also understand that you must earn
the right to be thus treated. And thus we will demand absolute
cleanliness of body and person. Is that such a hard requirement?
"We will demand that you pursue the
vegetarian diet. Is that such a hard requirement? We ask you to
garner your energies for the opening of the third eye and to maintain
celibacy during your period of instruction unless you have been
lawfully married in a church of your choice. Is that too hard?
"I say then the disciplines of Hierarchy are universal and
exacting. And unless you are willing to come under these disciplines
how can you expect to be crowned with the many crowns that the
Lord of the World stands waiting to place upon your heads?"
February 24, 1974
"The tendency on the part of humanity
to mimic one another has lowered standards of conduct as the infection
of sensual disorder and carelessness in dress reduces the hopes
of men for heaven in this age. What need have they for heaven? Are
they not in communion with the sensuality which they crave which
reeks of a depravity they know not of, but in which they are content
as unperceived error? When it is too late they will glimpse it.
But we are concerned for those who are able to see it and shun it
today, who are reaching out and up for the energy that can yet save
the age—that can yet deliver the world."
August 17, 1967
" . . . The people of Suern possessed seemingly miraculous
powers, including the ability to precipitate their own food. These
powers stemmed first of all from their strict adherence to a moral
code forced upon them by their monarch. Secondly, the Suernis
enjoyed these powers by the intercession of the occult adepts
of the time, who were called the Sons of the Solitude.
"Rai Ernon was one of the Sons of the Solitude. These Sons
were celibate, lived without families, often apart from civilization.
In exceptional cases they returned to civilization to serve their
fellowman in church and state. They went through years of training
and it was a course of embodiment upon embodiment as they became
the unascended and then the ascended adepts."
|Elizabeth C. Prophet

"Many times the personality endeavors
to build a concept around itself which it would like others to accept
as true concerning it, or in a desire to advance its own interests
it copies the virtues of another. In such endeavors the individual
really creates a concept of unreality, for by copying another the
individual is certainly not expressing either himself or the other
person—he is merely copying that which he sees and thinks
the other one to be. Do you see? So to copy another is but impeding
one's own spiritual progress."
" . . . the comingling of the seed of the not-self with the
seed of Christ. And in that blending, in that intermarriage there
does come forth the halfbreed that always contains the tie to the
Evil One, even while it is endowed with that light. And this ought
not to be!
"You cannot fellowship with darkness and arrive at the point
"And whatever the sacrifice you must deem that your determination
to be who you really are is greater than whatever temporary gain
may come to you through economic or political association and interaction
with these fallen ones.
. . And it is the mind coupled with the heart—the clear
mind, the clear-seeing eye and the fervent heart of absolute love
and reverence for life. This arcing in your being of the center
of the crown, the center of the third eye and of the throat chakra
and of the heart must be synchronized.
" . . . Let us no longer be naive. The forces
are bent on absolute world control and the destruction of the
world soul! They even plan not to destroy the physical fields
or the physical people but they desire to destroy their souls!
And this is their goal!.
" . . . And the vision must be first and foremost of your
Mighty I AM Presence. For when your eyes are locked in the gaze
of your I AM Presence, and none other, then you see there is the
current that descends. Then there begins to be woven the deathless
solar body which is in reality a duplicate forcefield of your
own causal body.
" . . . And when you do not make the
effort the alternative is to become mechanization man—to
become mechanized and therefore to respond to the commands of
another who has set himself up as the imposter of your Christ
Self and the imposter of your I AM Presence! Those imposters are
on the astral plane. They do enter the subconscious and they do
convince souls of light that they are the supreme intelligence
of their being, when they are merely extentions of the Nephilim
gods. Beware the voice of the (astral) computer speaking."

Taking Responsibility for Being God on Earth
Inner Alignment for the Turning of the Worlds
of My Chelas
"You who seek me shall find me."
" . . . You will understand why I also sent forth from this
company my own son Monroe Shearer this year, and with his family.
And it is high time that those who wonder throughout the movement
should realize that it is the action of the Law of our own messengership
and of Sanat Kumara that compels this discipline. And that discipline
rests between him and our own hearts.
"And if those in the field and at outlying
regions find it difficult to understand, let them go to the Book
of I Kings and read this chapter 13, and realize that the number
13 is the initiation of Christhood and that those that seek to
put on the mantle of leadership and Christhood must also submit
to the most meticulous laws governing that office. And where they
are in violation of those laws, the great hand of God's mercy
must place them outside of and apart from the very intense focus
of the sacred fire that would cause them harm, further harm, were
they to remain within that presence.
"Thus, let us not pity the man of God who
was disobedient to his Lord. And let us not pity the lying prophet.
Let us pity Almighty God, who must strive at times with servants
who show their unworthiness! Let us pity him by offering our prayers
unto him on behalf of the people of Poland, who deserve much more
our consideration than those who are disciples and who are dealt
with with the accuracy of the point of the diamond and the two-edged
sword and the compassion of the Cosmic Christ.
"Let all understand that in each individual
case of chelaship and discipleship, the hand of God, through the
obedient prophet, delivers the just reward and the just chastisement.
If it were not so, neither the gift of prophecy nor the office
of messengership would remain. Therefore, let us support the office
of our messengership as we support the office of your chelaship.
And let us realize that all of us together are walking a path
that demands fastidiousness, attention to detail, and ever-watchfulness!
"Let us intensify the vibration of one another's
office and bow to the exigencies of our mutual offices. As you
have the need to remain steadfast and devoted to your inner calling
(whatever the criticism or the pity or the human sympathy or the
pull that may come to you through any persons, known or unknown!),
so we must do the same. And we will support you as you stand for
your own right and your freedom to be God, as you defend your
own office of chela—so long as you stand to defend our right
and our God-determination to be one with the mantle of the cosmic
messengers of Maitreya.
"Let us realize that cosmic law that governs our existence
is not often understood or well received by the people of the
world who must function under the human laws that have been imperfectly
codified by human instruments. When you know the law and see it
and understand it, I pray you, be not deterred from it by the
offer of meat or drink or rest or some other human comfort! But
realize that God is compassionate and will, in due course, offer
to you the place prepared in the wilderness, the table of David.
"Thus, the feast of Light is the feast of
the teaching in the presence of the holy angels and ultimately
the supper of the great God where you are called upon to assimilate
the entire round of human creation of the fallen ones. It is a
noble endeavor of which we are all a part. I speak to every chela,
every would-be chela, and everyone who calls himself chela throughout
the world. As you receive us in the spirit of intense love, so
you will find the gift of correction and discipline the highest
good and the shortest distance between your state of consciousness
and your victory.
"As I come in this hour, I must say: Hail
to the Great Guru, Sanat Kumara! Hail to Gautama Buddha and Lord
Maitreya! Hail to Jesus Christ, to Saint Germain, to Mother Mary,
to El Morya, and to all of the ascended masters and cosmic beings
who have ever spoken through me or tutored my heart or inspired
my soul's poetry throughout all of my incarnations! For truly,
I am God-taught. And I am, my beloved chelas, so very humble toward
the vast cosmos which has bequeathed to me the ancient wisdom.
What I have ever done to deserve the blessings of the Lord in
such abundance, I do not know nor can I say.
"But of this one thing I am certain: that
my gratitude to the fount overflowing in my being perpetually
must be expressed throughout eternity toward those who are my
chelas and those who are the lowly and the meek and the humble
of heart! That I might infill them with the Light with which He
has infilled me is my perpetual prayer—that I might give
you my vision and my strength and my clear-seeing in the hour
when temptation presents such a confusion of tongues and babble
of voices and a hectic, hellish energy around you! I would give
you the clarity of my heart and my long experience in facing the
many choices that are offered daily by the legions of Mara.
"I pray that you ascend to the scale of
your own Christ consciousness. I pray that you become more than
you are—the more that is God! And I pray that you realize
that you are more in this moment than meets your own eye. You
are more God-free, greater in stature, contain more Light than
you even know! It is the condition of mortality and all to which
the flesh is heir as momentum —it is the stifling, stifling
of world thought and manipulation and psychotronics and hatred
and interference with the cycles of the body through all impurities
that causes you to have sometimes such a depressed self-awareness,
depressed in the sense that it is put down, has a sense of confinement
and smallness as though you were no one, nobody who had gone nowhere
yet on the Path.
"I look at the magnificent God-free being
that you are. And the entire passion of my soul is to connect
your soul with that being! And, O it is a passion night and day!
You need only speak my name, Lanello, and you will instantly have
a ray from my heart that connects you to some vast portion, some
noble stature of grandeur of your own true cosmic being! What
appears to be a mere paltry extension of the I AM Presence is
in fact the final descent into physical matter of your own being
that already experiences the vastness of cosmos.
"Do not forfeit the ascent of the last remains
of identity in this octave. Do not forfeit your ascent by the
mighty rope by which you enter the trapdoor and it is shut and
the great vehicle of your being moves on to other worlds! Do not
allow your extended self in this level to cause you pain and loss
of opportunity and life—and the stupid involvements that
tear from you sometimes centuries of your own sacred labor! Do
not allow it, precious hearts.
"You are not the synthetic self. However
long you may labor to create that self, it is not you! I pray
that you do not allow it to feed off of the great light of your
own Mother flame. For the tares sown among the wheat extend their
roots to earth's subwater systems. And they, too, would drink
for a time of the Mother's energy. It is like the cancer that
consumes the body from the energy of the body itself.
"This is what the synthetic self is, and
the physical cancer is the synthetic self. Truly, those who watch
by as loved ones go through this experience must, Almighty God,
receive this lesson: that when you do not cut off the synthetic
self, it eats the light of the soul, eats the light of the Mother
flame and the chakras!
"After all, where do you think the Goliaths
of the world in industry, the magnates, the bankers, the leaders
derive their power? There is no other power in this octave save
the Mother flame! They themselves are like a living cancer, through
which the entire cancer of World Communism spreads!
"They are the synthetic self that has eaten
alive, if there ever was, any real presence in them. I can tell
you that much of the wisdom of God vouchsafed to me in my incarnations,
which you have been hearing about, came through observation—a
keen and penetrating observation of the world scene, of passing
events, of the outworking of karma, and then going beyond the
physical to the reading of the aura, the sensing of the soul.
"And ultimately all of this is made plain
by the focusing upon the I AM Presence that reveals every cause
behind every effect. The sharpening of the senses and of the inner
eye will bring to your attention many obvious lessons of life.
Go and meditate upon the sheep, for example-sheep on the hills
of Camelot. When you meditate upon God in the heart of the sheep,
you will discover the mystery of the Lamb and the lamb that was
put to the sacrifice in the Old Testament and the lamb that was
Isaac, provided and yet withdrawn by God for the very catching
of the suitable sacrifice in the thicket.
"Thus, God has ever provided the lamb for
the sacrifice. Can it be any other way? God has given the Lamb
Jesus Christ, Sanat Kumara. God has given the Lamb to you for
meat—spiritual and physical. God has given to you the Lamb
for the Bridegroom and the certain voice of the law of Love whose
response in you ought to be, my beloved, unmistakable obedience—unmistakable
obedience. Make no mistake then, it is true—that they that
hear the voice of God and do it shall live.
"O gentle flame of Mercy, reveal thy inner
strength clothed in garment of white, sapphire, amethyst. Flame
of Mercy from the heart of Kuan Yin, O presence of Mother's eternal
wooing of her children, now be the magnet and the open door of
Elohim! I, Lord God, in the presence of Lanello and my messenger,
ordain it. It is done, and it shall come to pass. In the name
of the true Light, ye are sealed.
"Do not break the seal by disobedience
to the Mighty I AM Presence. Make no mistake. For the hour of
the fatal mistake is past and the hour of the certain life—victorious
victory is at hand. Welcome now to my heart as Lanello for the
turning of your world. You who seek me shall find me."
December 27, 1981
The Benefits of the Code of Conduct
" . . . The conclusion of the matter is
that the Messenger's protection is from the Great White Brotherhood
and El Morya. The chela's protection is from his daily decree
work and his maintaining of the standards of the Great White Brotherhood's
Code of Conduct."—Elizabeth C. Prophet, May 13, 1997
" . . . the Ascended Master Code of Conduct
that shall be presented for our study and that shall be enacted
by the Mother of the Flame for the university is the very same
Code of conduct that was delivered into the hand of Moses, the
precepts of the Law that were delivered in the Sermon on the Mount,
and the teachings that have come forth through the Buddha and
the hierarchies of heaven.
"You will not be asked to submit to any discipline that has
not already been present in our retreats for thousands of years.
" . . . Do you understand that the Law is impersonal and
that it is impersonally applied and that if you place yourself
in the hands of God and work the works and do His will, you have
nothing to fear?"—Lord Maitreya, February 24, 1974
"Where there is compromise of the
code of conduct there is crisis. I tell you, beloved ones,
we must withdraw when individuals in our Teaching Centers or Study
Groups do not heed that which is necessary by cosmic law for a
standard of life and morality and consecration. Realize, then,
that these seemingly insignificant compromises do cost us our
own commitment to your souls as well as the intensity of the focus
that ought to be sustained within that Teaching Center.
"And of course there is the burden upon souls of Light who
come there and who unknowingly must bear the extra burden of your
misqualified energy. Therefore, we cannot and will not look lightly
upon such infractions . . . "—El Morya, July 4, 1978
" . . . Where a standard is held, society
may rise. Where standards are leveled, all shall go the way of
the downward spiral of civilization.
"Thus, let there be places for those who want reinforcement
of their humanness and let there be places for those who seek
reinforcement of their Christhood. And let the Church be distinguished
as that body that does support the soul in her ascent to God .
. . "—Hilarion, May 26, 1991
" . . . I am sent by Lord Maitreya
to hold the line of the initiation of each one's Christhood—to
hold the line, to hold the line, beloved! So may you know that
the signs of the times and the changing signs of the times do
not in any way change the standards of the law of your personal
Christhood that have been from the Beginning.
"Therefore, take care that you do not attempt to redefine
the Path or its requirements, to somehow step down those requirements,
making way for sin itself to enter in by justification of this
or that human condition."—Jesus Christ, September 1,
"And so El Morya took me in hand and he
told me this story . . . The Guru Maitreya gave to the two the
rules for initiation . . . In the case of Lord Maitreya, he set
forth the discipline and withdrew.
And Adam and Eve were alone in the garden . . . He gave them the
discipline. He gave them the rules and the code of conduct and
" . . . That is the nature of the initiation, that individuals
must be alone with their own energy and with the discipline and
that the guru cannot intercede in the hour of their initiation.
And so they're given a certain block of time and space to determine
what they will do."—Elizabeth C. Prophet, May 18, 1979
Specific Codes of Conduct
"Some of you have thought as the years have gone by that
it does not matter if you drink a little wine. Well, it matters
if you wish to clear your crown chakra. It matters if you wish
to be holding a chalice of light and a fire of God unto that Great
Central Sun. Our rules are not for a day or for a month or for
a year or ten or a hundred years. Our rules remain. They are tried
and true. They work."—El Morya, September 1, 1996
"Modern music, rock music simply has no place with the Ascended
Masters. And you can't say otherwise . . . There are dance forms
that are perfectly acceptable, such as the waltz in the
three-quarter time is the same as your heartbeat . . . Square
dancing is fine . . . You know, if you really want to go up, then
there's a lot of things you have to leave behind."—Elizabeth
July 1, 1996
"Thus, not (mandatory) celibacy but the requirement (that
those who serve at the altar hold the light) in the body temple.
But this (mastery of the raising up of the light) is acquired
by celibacy, beloved, else it is acquired through moderation in
all things. You cannot squander the light in all directions and
still have it on the altar on Sunday, or in the pews."—Hilarion,
May 26, 1991
Merit for Intercession
"I, El Morya Khan, Chief of the Darjeeling
Council, hereby announce the removal of the thread that originates
from my mantle to the heart of the Messenger, to your hearts,
for the holding of the balance of your lifestreams. The dispensation
of this thread, which is a thread of protection, was formerly
made possible because of the code of conduct established and sponsored
by me in the past.
"Your merit for intercession will now be based upon your
own decree momentum, your devotion to your God Presence and your
service to mankind. May you pass every test."—El Morya,
April 30, 1997
The standards established by El Morya and the Messengers for daily
decrees have been as follows:
20 minutes of blue decrees to Archangel Michael (who promised
his protection, extending to family and more thereby)
15-30 minutes of violet flame (transmutation/balancing of personal
"I Cast Out the Dweller on the Threshold" 20.09 3-9
times (binding of the dweller—the not self)
Decree to Beloved Mighty Astrea 10.14—"The Starry Mother"
9 or 36-40 times (the headquarters staff was required by El Morya
and the Messengers for decades to give this decree 10.14 36-40
times per day to keep themselves and the Community free from entities)
How to Magnetize the Presence of El Morya
Write a list of problems/burdens and give them
to El Morya by placing the list face up on the right knee and
placing his picture face down on top of the list, while seated
giving decrees, especially 10.03. El Morya said he would take
your problems so that you could focus/work on world service.
"Blessed hearts, you should do me great service if you could
render for me the call to the will of God (10.03), for that call
that was written down from my own causal body by Mark does give
to you the balance of the will of God and my own Diamond Heart
and the diamond of my turban, focusing within your four lower
bodies a grid of light.
"I should like to have, beloved, some reservoir of the call
to the will of God, of the sweet surrender (10.18), that I might
have in time of greatest need something in store to offer even
the Lords of Karma when I desire not to leave you in the (karmic)
straits of dealing with forces you know not of." —El
Morya, August 8, 1988
" . . . This, my announcement to you, may come as a
rejoicing and as a warning. For you must be prepared to
walk in seven-league boots and to rise from the pettiness
of self-concern and the embroilment of the personality and
the ego in those things which must be put behind.
"I would say it is a most noble
and dangerous calling to be a chela of the Great White Brotherhood
in this hour. For, beloved hearts, to be taken up in that
ascended-master consciousness and walk with us means that
you must be constant and steady in your calls, in your service,
taking care not to allow imbalances of rest, interruptions
in the necessary and proper care of the four lower bodies,
proper food and rest, and a minimum of exercise required,
the balance of the light and the fresh air, the sun and
the decree work, and a service that is concentrated and
not constantly interrupted.
"The service of your sacred
labor may also be the instrument of our Presence. You must
not allow disruptions—physical, mental, or emotional—in
your service to the Light, whatever your capacity. For these
disruptions break the flow of the rhythm of life and allow
for the introduction of error and riptides and energies
that will throw you and your work off balance.
"Understand, beloved hearts,
that we must demand of our chelas that resolution to come
up higher in the vibration that must be held for the earth.
We have done all that we can do, given the givens. We have
done all that we can do, considering the regular dynamic
decrees, your level of consciousness, and the consciousness
of those who represent the governments of the nations."
"Whenever possible, you should seize the opportunity to attend
such a conference. What's more, you should make possible the impossible
through the alchemy of invocation to your own God Being. Not only
are these conferences the most important experience of a lifetime
in terms of the expansion of consciousness and the transmutation
of untold substance in your world, but your willingness to serve
as a coordinate on earth for the hierarchies of light will earn
for you a momentum of good karma that you can ill afford to be without."
Of our national character, Samuel Adams
insisted, "[N]either the wisest constitution nor the wisest laws
will secure the liberty and happiness of a people whose manners are
Thomas Jefferson added, "It is the manners and spirit of a people
which preserve a republic in vigor. A degeneracy in these is a canker
which soon eats to the heart of its laws and constitution."
Understanding that each generation would
face its trials, Thomas Paine wrote, "I love the man that can smile
in trouble, that can gather strength from distress, and grow brave by
reflection. 'Tis the business of little minds to shrink; but he whose
heart is firm, and whose conscience approves his conduct, will pursue
his principles unto death."
James Madison wrote, "The belief
in a God All Powerful wise and good, is so essential to the moral order
of the world and to the happiness of man, that arguments which enforce
it cannot be drawn from too many sources nor adapted with too much solicitude
to the different characters and capacities impressed with it."
"In the name I AM THAT I AM I call
for a nucleus of lightbearers to uphold Maitreya's code of conduct (taught
