"Where there are no physical defenses,
beloved, it must be the hearts of those of freedom
who are so intense and whose intensity does attract so many angels that
the hosts of darkness
truly fear to carry out their Armageddon."—Goddess of Liberty,
2 July, 1988
340, 561. "Some will dismember, but we
because the theory of focus is found in unity . . .
The evolutionary step of understanding the heart
has to begin in the days of Armageddon,
as the sole salvation of humanity."—El Morya, 'Heart' 1932
"We make men without chests and expect
of them virtue and enterprise.
We laugh at honor and are shocked to find traitors in our midst."—C.S.
"Fine art of damage control—not a
booboo, not a scratch—it requires surgery, lifesaving gear."
"But be ye doers of the word, and not hearers
only, deceiving your own selves.
For if any be a hearer of the word, and not a doer, he is like unto a
beholding his natural face in a glass:
For he beholdeth himself, and goeth his way, and straightway forgetteth
what manner of man he was." (James 1:22-24)
" . . . When the Karmic Lords release a spiral of karma of
the magnitude we are seeing, the entire Nature kingdom plays a
part in its descent, which is always according to the law of cycles.
And it is the law of cycles that is illustrated in our work with
the Cosmic Clock.
"In this capacity the elementals have been
the foremost instruments of the karmic return of mankind’s
discord. The earliest memory we have of this phenomenon, which
some have likened to Atlas shrugging, is the sinking of the continent
of Lemuria beneath the Pacific 50,000 years ago for the karma
of the abuse of the sacred fire by priests and priestesses at
the altars of God.
"The theme was a war of the gods, who misused
atomic energy—hurling and
heaping destruction upon one another from one end of the continent
to the other until cataclysm destroyed that continent by fire.
I myself remember seeing Lemuria break up in flames. Then, of
course, there was the sinking of Atlantis 11,500 years ago, described
as the Noachian deluge. And history records cataclysm on a smaller
scale, as in the sudden burying of Pompeii and Herculaneum by
the eruption of Mt. Vesuvius in a.d. 79.
"The rise in hostilities in the Middle East
was a key factor in the decision by the Lords of Karma to begin
the Dark Cycle on April 23, 1969. There has been no real period
of peace in the Middle East since Israel declared its independence
at midnight on May 14, 1948. Many of the world’s current
economic, political and military problems are rooted in ancient
strife revisited by the evolutions embodied in the Middle East.
It goes back to the time of Sumer and beyond to their planets
"This strife has been ongoing in that piece
of territory for 10,000 years and more. Some of the lifewaves
who are a part of that strife have reincarnated again and again
to deal with the karma of past struggles. Theirs are ancient animosities
that antedate their current modes of consciousness.
"The Dark Cycle of the accelerated return
of mankind’s karma was scheduled to begin January 18, 1969,
but by a dispensation from Lord Gautama Buddha it was postponed.
On January 19, 1969, Gautama Buddha warned that 'the warlike manifestations
currently being exercised in the Holy Land represent to us the
most dangerous single factor that is calculated to plunge mankind
headlong into a holocaust of planetary destructivity.'
"This is because if these battles had escalated,
the United States would have taken the side of Israel and the
Soviet Union would have taken the side of the Arab states, beginning
a global war based on the karmic records of their animosities.
"On April 22, 1969, U Thant, secretary-general
of the United Nations, said that Israel and Egypt were in 'a virtual
state of active war' and that the UN cease-fire had become 'totally
in the Suez Canal sector.'
"The following day, April 23, Egypt formally
repudiated the cease-fire and the Dark Cycle began. Its purpose:
to let the karma descend and therefore diminish the destructive
capacity of both sides, thus controlling the damage. And the Dark
Cycle is exactly that, damage control.
"But the period of a Dark Cycle does not
eliminate free will. And people have to work to do better in order
to do better.
"There are laggard evolutions on the planet
today who despite their heavy karma have figured out how to outwit
the odds, dodge their karma and use the Dark Cycle to their ends:
they wage war, manage both sides of the conflict, and use the
chaos to rearrange the territory so that their net gain is more
power, money and control over the people and the planetary resources.
And the Lightbearers have less, and less, and less each time the
formula is reapplied.
"Call it faith, call it vitality,
call it the will to live, call it the religion of tomorrow morning,
call it the immortality of man, call it whatever you wish; it
is the thing that explains
why man survives all things and why there is no such thing as
a pessimist."—G.K. Chesterton
"The courage we desire and prize
is not the courage to die decently
but to live manfully."—Thomas Carlyle
". . . In order to save us for our
own path of personal Christhood, Jesus took upon himself the
sins of the world as much as the Great Law would allow, and
he has borne the karma that has been descending these 2,000
years with the continuous ride of the Four Horsemen around the
Cosmic Clock. At the conclusion of his life he stood as the
Mediator, the avatar, which means the God-man, or incarnation
of God, even as he stood as the Ascended Master. And Jesus bore
that portion of karma until April 23, 1969.
"On that day and date this dispensation
and grace for the planet came to a conclusion. Mankind began to
know what it meant to have no Mediator. Now it was up to those
in embodiment to be the mediators, to be Christed ones, to be
the saints and the faithful, either inside or outside of world
religion, to intercede by words and deeds and fervent prayer.
Yes, to invoke the violet flame and to keep the Flame of Life
"However, Jesus did retain the further dispensation
to bear the karma of those individuals who embodied the Christ.
To the extent that a person embodies the Christ, Jesus can bear
that one’s sins. Jesus also has a dispensation to assist
certain of those who have the potential to embody the Christ,
even though they may not have brought any significant portion
of their Christhood into manifestation.
"By April 23, 1969, the people of earth
had had 40 years to take up the teachings of the Ascended Masters,
to know their Mighty I AM Presence and to develop a momentum on
giving violet flame decrees. Saint Germain originally released
this dispensation of the violet flame through Guy and Edna Ballard,
who founded the I AM Activity in 1932. At one time their members
numbered in the hundreds of thousands, if not in the millions.
"It was Saint Germain’s hope to provide
the people of earth with the necessary impetus and acceleration
to bring in the Golden Age of Aquarius. Working with Jesus at
the conclusion of the Piscean age, Saint Germain came as the hierarch
of the Aquarian age to deliver to the children of the Light the
grace of the outer knowledge of the violet flame and its specific
application in the transmutation of world karma."

"Thus, there is a spiritual warfare engaged against the souls
of Light. And there is a physical warfare against the temples,
the minds, the bodies, the hearts with which the soul is integrated.
Therefore, beloved ones, note well that the original declaration
of war against this very nation and the youth of the world occurred
on a similar occasion, December 31, 1959. * On this occasion,
there was the moving into position of certain individuals incarnated
among the youth for their betrayal through the upsetting of the
mighty rhythm of the flame of peace—those groups known as
the Beatles, those individuals who were also their counterparts
in the Rolling Stones, and all who followed after them.
"That very position astrologically in the
stars of the heavens was the turning point diametrically for the
moment of the conception of individuality in the Cosmic Christ,
through the teachings of the Divine Mother, as they were brought
forth in that hour through the Three Wise Men who, under the leadership
of El Morya, sponsored the prophet of the decades, your own beloved
Lanello, to give those teachings of the Great White Brotherhood
that would enable the youth of this nation and the world to bring
forth their own individuality in Christ. But the false prophets
appeared. And by the intense sound and perverted rhythm of their
energies, they involved decades now of youth in the culture that
comes out of the pit—the rock music, the drugs, and the
ensuing rebellion that has channeled forth the entire rebellion
of the fallen ones who are seated comfortably in the lower levels,
the uttermost levels of the astral plane."
* On December 31, 1959, astrological configurations based on the
conceptual chart for the U.S. indicated a period of extremely
stern testing, including a strong potential for war and a challenge
to individual identity. On this same date, the North Vietnamese
government under Ho Chi Minh adopted a Communist constitution
and called for the reunification of Vietnam, marking the beginning
of active infiltration of the South by North Vietnamese. This
led to further U.S. commitment of troops in 1964 to aid the South
in their fight against Communism.
In December 1959, the Beatles (then called
the Quarrymen) were playing in a small backstreet club in Liverpool,
England; the Rolling Stones (Blues Incorporated) made their debut
in London in March 1962. In February 1964, the Beatles (John Lennon,
Paul McCartney, George Harrison, and Ringo Starr) conducted their
first rock concert tour of the U.S., making two landmark appearances
on 'The Ed Sullivan Show.' The Rolling Stones (Mick Jagger, Brian
Jones, Charles Watts, Bill Wyman, Keith Richards, Mick Taylor,
Ron Wood), nicknamed 'Satan’s Jesters,' followed with their
own U.S. tour the same year. The Beatles and the Stones ignited
the counterculture revolution of the sixties with their advocacy
of drugs, sex, and social protest.

"Have you considered when and how the Dark Cycle might come
to an end? Have you considered as the Karmic Board has considered
whether that return of mankind’s karma could be turned off
even as it was turned on? We have considered such questions, beloved
"One would think even as a beginning student
on the Path that mankind should show some merit, some concern,
some willingness to take responsibility for Light misqualified
in previous ages. In some corners of earth it has been so. But
in more than 90 percent of the people there have been gradations
of rebellion [against] and discontent with the wheel [of the Law]
that turns and is spent of its vessels of karma [that is] being
outpoured cyclically day by day throughout the year
of the Lord’s appointing.
"Thus there is great, great hope among some
quarters and a lessening of hope among others. These considerations
before the Karmic Board have brought forth a number of deliberations.
The Great Divine Director has affirmed in his wisdom that mankind
at least ought to experience a cycle of fourteen, following, though
they know it not [in their outer minds’ awareness], the
fourteen stations of the cross of Christ and of the Woman and
her seed. And many have been bowed down with their crosses of
karma when their crosses could have been Light, borne collectively
by Ruby Ray angels and white-fire devotees.
"Thus, the Goddess of Liberty has spoken
and has brought to the attention of all that some records which
have not even been touched or unleashed would yet remain if but
[one] fourteen-[year] cycle [of returning karma such as you are
now experiencing in the yearly Dark Cycles] were to be given.
[If this were to be the decision and the dispensation of the Twenty-Four
Elders, i.e., to postpone the present Dark Cycle with its annual
accelerated release of karma to earth’s evolutions,] therefore
at some later date, perhaps just when a golden age might peep
through the dark clouds, the children of earth would [once] again
have to face the even greater darkness [of the unredeemed portions
of the Dark Cycle which they had not faced under the current plan
"Thus, what is the great wisdom of the law
of the Four and Twenty Elders and of the Council of the Fourteen
who govern the destiny of the I AM Race of Sanat Kumara in the
earth? Blessed hearts, some who are the very determined spokesmen
for the determined disciples know very well that the pure in heart,
the diligent, and the sincere would rather pay all their debts
than have some remaining, would rather not have a reprieve but
continue to work the works of the Word while they have the Light
incarnate. Unto these, then, consideration is given in their own
manifestations of the cycles of the solar hierarchies.
"Thus, unto these who have stated their
presence and who truly have the strength, the will, and the purity
of God-determination, the decree has gone forth: So long as they
are steadfast and strong and willing, let them be chosen to bear
personally of their own personal momentums of karma [as well as]
those portions of the Dark Cycle [which are] of their own karmic
record until the last farthing be paid and every jot and tittle
of the Law [of karma] is fulfilled. And therefore it is possible
in a series of cycles of fourteen [years] for you to come to grips
with all elements contained within what you have called the electronic
belt as [it is] the container [in and of the sub conscious]
of [karmic] cycles unfulfilled.
"Blessed hearts, the vials of the last plagues
are poured out individually by the mighty Archangels as a path
of initiation to every initiate on the path of Sanat Kumara in
other circles throughout the planetary body. These vials represent
the yearly descent of karma accelerated in this age of the Kali
Yuga. As long as these individuals are determined to fulfill the
law of cycles of their inner being, so it shall continue.
" . . . There are no exceptions to the law
of the ascension or the balancing of karma.
"Though many in heaven may plead as advocates
before God the Father, your own soul, beloved heart, must give
the testimony whereupon the final decision rests. We have given
you this witness and the revelation of previous incarnations,
of sublimation of misqualified energy in holy purpose by the Messenger
so that you could trace her footsteps, so that you could be now
devotee in holy order and [now] sponsor [of] a family—simple
servants, kings and queens, riests and priestesses, wearing your
robes, playing your roles, and realizing that in each of these
sections of life, in each of these apportionments there has been
karma balanced and of course some karma made.
"By studying, then, the dealings with
all conditions common to planet earth and seeing how this Messenger
has dealt with them, you can do the same. The story of this life
as you know it, and
as in some cases you do not, is the story of one who could overcome
by knowledge, obedience, and love of the Law."
"We of the ascended Hierarchy are taking
stern measures to expose to the American people all that threatens
their liberty—but your cooperation is essential. As you
know, the call must come forth from your octave in order for the
answer to be given from ours. We need your help in the coming
days more than ever before. You need to do your part so that we
can do our part now to effect a smooth transition into the Golden
Age. There is no turning back of the cycles of Light nor of the
release of mankind’s karma which occurred on April 23, 1973,
marking the beginning of the fourth year of the Dark Cycle.
"Today mankind are being called upon
to choose between Light and darkness. Let the Keepers of the Flame
affirm the right and invoke the Light. Thus the choices shall
be held up before the world, the way be made plain, and the betrayers
of the Christ be exposed."
" . . . I direct your attention to the Dark Cycle of mankind’s
returning karma which, according to the Great Divine Director, officially
began on April 23, 1969. A Dark Cycle is a period when the Great
Law mandates that mankind’s cumulative negative karma be unleashed
upon him according to his deeds.
"Had it not been for the avatar Jesus Christ stepping in
to mitigate the karma of 25,800 years in the tradition of the
adepts of the East (as Lord Maitreya, Gautama Buddha and Sanat
Kumara had borne this karma before him) that karma would have
descended in full at the beginning of the Piscean age. But because
Jesus chose to take embodiment and to fulfill his mission, this
karma was mitigated by percentages and allowed to descend in a
series of cycles that would last throughout the age.
"It is the Four Horsemen of the Apocalypse (see Rev. 6)
who are delivering mankind’s negative karma of the past
25,800 years. They began their ride in the year a.d. 2 and they
will end it in the year 2002. They ride in a counterclockwise
spiral through the twelve signs of the zodiac. Each turn of the
spiral has a lesser radius and therefore takes less time than
the last. The first turn of the spiral took 365 years and the
last will take twelve years.
"As the Four Horsemen move through time, they deliver the
karma mankind has created in each of the four planes of the material
cosmos: etheric, mental, astral and physical. In the year a.d.
2, the Four Horsemen began delivering the karma mankind created
in the etheric plane. In 1307 they began delivering the karma
mankind created in the mental plane. On April 23, 1969, they began
delivering the karma mankind created on the astral plane. And
on April 23, 1990, they began delivering the karma mankind created
in the physical plane.
"Those who faithfully give three hours or more of violet-flame
decrees on the twenty-third of each month specifically for the
transmutation of their personal karma shall clean escape their
personal karma of the Dark Cycle for the given month.
"Those who faithfully give nine hours or more of violet-flame
decrees on the twenty-third of each month specifically for the
transmutation of planetary karma shall clean escape the planetary
karma of the Dark Cycle for the given month.
"This, my beloved, is an unheard-of dispensation! Come hell
or high water, as they say, do not allow anyone or anything to
stand in the way of your oneness with me on the twenty-third of
each month until the hour of your ascension!"
March 23, 1996
" . . . You will know an era of darkness, yet that darkness
will not last forever. But that darkness must come until there is
the consuming, by the power of Elohim, of all that never should
have been. These are the days when records of war, of suicide, of
drugs and of all those things that have taken the children of the
world out of the way must be cast into the sacred fire.
"Know this, beloved, for Mother Mary
has declared it. The day of Darkness will come upon you, and then
the day of Light shall shine as the noon day sun. And ultimately
you will know that you have passed through those days that have
lasted for thousands upon thousands of years."

"Therefore, the trends toward misqualification must be challenged
at the same time that they are being reckoned with as karmic factors
by those who are determined to override man’s density and
to bring into manifestation the long-awaited kingdom. Have men failed
in the past? Then the record of that failure is a magnet to draw
them down, and strong counteracting forces must be kindled. The
power of heaven must be reharnessed and men must turn from darkness
toward the light. There is, then, a purpose for spiritual alchemy.
"But before I go into it enough to
enable you to draw forth greater measures of cosmic energy and
to learn how to qualify this energy correctly, I must show the
relevance of this study to the present age. The destructive energies
which poured through the Beatles and entered the subconscious
minds of the youth, popular though they were in the world of form,
are gradually working their way to the surface, revealing their
true colors and Satanic origins. These unholy emanations have
drawn many young souls into the mistaken belief that the taking
of drugs, the practice of witchcraft, and illicit sex can give
them freedom from all imposed limitations. Instead, these indulgences
have held them in bondage to the legions of darkness."

INTERMEDIATE STUDIES IN ALCHEMY III
" . . . So this is 'the farce of the ages:' people have looked
at the Caesars—the fallen ones in their positions of power—and
they have worshipped them. They have followed their ordinances
and their laws in preference to God's law. The result is that
they have lost the contact.
" . . . To restate this: we see that
we have lost the contact in two ways. One by looking at Caesar
instead of God. Two, by not exercising the spoken (pristine) word
to invoke the angelic host. The power of the spoken word then
fell into disuse; and when that occurred the power waned, for
it has to do with a momentum (of energy offered daily to the light
forces on high so that they may intercede in this Earth-plane
daily, according to the laws of free will and divine intercession)."

The Dark Cycle
The Dark Cycle of the return of mankind’s
karma began on April 23, 1969, following the 'half a time' announced
by Gautama Buddha on December 31, 1968. The Dark Cycle is a period
when mankind’s misqualified energy, held in abeyance for
many centuries, is being released for balance in this period of
transition from the Piscean age into the Aquarian cycle.
With the dispensation of Jesus Christ, the Piscean
Conqueror, came the setting aside of a vast quantity of human
karma. By his sacrifice and victory, the entire planetary weight
of human misqualification was lifted, giving the evolutions of
earth the opportunity to realize the fullness of their own Christ-reality.
As this two-thousand-year cycle draws to a close, the ‘sins’
of the world borne by the Saviour Jesus Christ—world karma
held in abeyance by the grace and mercy of the Law—are being
returned to mankind that they may also be overcomers of sin, disease,
Bearing their own burden of personal and planetary
karma, they now have the opportunity to apply the teachings of
the ascended masters in redeeming those energies misused in past
cycles and to fulfill the requirements of the ascension on the
path of discipleship under Jesus Christ, who said: “He that
believeth on me, the works that I do shall he do also; and greater
works than these shall he do; because I go unto my Father.”
THE GREAT DIVINE DIRECTOR
November 5, 1966
“Yet it is not the will of God or the ascended
masters to permit the downfall of society or of the world of form,
but we want you to know that the accumulation and accretion has
risen higher than ever before in history. In fact, it was only
seventy-five percent this high when the decision was made to overthrow
in the time of Noah the civilizations then existing . . .
“Conditions in the world today have reached
a point where the Karmic Board has withdrawn all restraint from
the beings of the elements. This means that the mankind of earth
today do not know from one minute to the next just what the elementals
will do. At first this may seem to you to be a very strange activity,
but it is a decision that is based upon the preservation of eternal
values as weighed against temporal values which have themselves
“I shall clarify. The life of mankind,
the temporal life, must be laid down. The reason for its tenure,
en toto, is that men should find God. Men are so immersed in materialism
and in the pursuit of darkness that they are not finding God.
The calls and prayers of the students of light to protect the
coastal region of this land and to protect Europe and to protect
other parts of the world have been heeded by the cosmic Karmic
Board, and mankind have actually been benefited by the calls of
the righteous men upon this planet.
“But now has come the time, precious ones,
when they man call and the Board cannot answer. For a certain
period of time a dispensation has been granted at the request,
the righteous request, of both the Darjeeling and Indian Council
for the will of God to be made known. And the will of God has
clearly delineated that if the present course is to be pursued,
the entire planet would of necessity be blotted out of the planetary
chain and those righteous individuals who are here be removed
to other evolutions.
"Inasmuch as there remains one shred of
hope for mankind (that when the forces of elemental life are unleashed,
and when certain destructive elements in mankind are released
and unleashed without restraint), that mankind may then awaken
and decide for themselves that they will cancel out the product
of their own corrupted imaginations, we have recommended that
this shall occur for the sake of mankind and for the preservation
of their immortal soul and the preservation of immortal value.
“Therefore, we sound forth tonight the
edict that unless mankind shall change and correct and mend some
of the terrible flaws now existent in society, certainly the elementals
will be unable to hold back the tide of human creation which now
stands behind them, held in the name of cosmic mercy. Do not be
surprised nor affrighted by that which comes forth, then, upon
the earth; and if you wish to give your energies to try to stop
it, that is your privilege, but I think that what the Karmic Board
would like to have you do shall now be made known to you.
“We desire that those who have formerly
given their energies for the protection of mankind and for the
holding back of cataclysmic action shall now turn their total
attention upon the masquerades which mankind have put around themselves,
the human creation which they have builded around themselves to
protect themselves against spiritual power. We desire that you
shall call for the walls of Jericho of human creation to fall
down. We desire that you shall call for mankind to become illumined
to the spiritual power that is now rising today to great cosmic
heights upon this planet and is responsible for many conditions
which mankind do not understand. Because mankind are not accepting
that spiritual power but are rejecting it, it is breaking out
in all sorts of disturbances upon this planet.
“When you call therefore solemnly to Almighty
God for a removal of the cause and core of mankind’s recalcitrant
and rebellious attitude to the Spirit of Almighty God, you will
be doing the specific thing which we have decided now should be
done. It is not essential to stop the action of cataclysm or world
disturbances; it is rather to call for an awakening of mankind
(which is really putting the horse before the cart, blessed ones)
and will produce, if mankind will accept it, their deliverance
from the karmic retribution which otherwise will descend upon
them. This is inevitable; you cannot stop it! The only way you
can stop it is by mankind’s acceptance of the law. It is
the law of Love . . .
“Did not the Word sound forth of old, ‘Remember
thy Creator in the days of thy youth when thy years fail not?’
(Ecclesiastes 12:1) Then know that the power of the Karmic Board
is a wise decision. I personally voted for it, and I would vote
for it again. And we have the backing not only of the mankind
upon this planet, but of other systems of worlds that we have
consulted. And great cosmic emissaries of light have come out
to us from the Pleiades; and a petition was presented to Alpha
and Omega by Helios and Vesta which demanded action because of
mankind’s ignorance of the law . . .
“This is a solemn moment, and I am calling
this to your attention so that you will recognize that there is
something that you can do, and that is to continue to call for
the awakening of mankind. Let these signs appear! Let these signs
manifest! Do not try to stop them! Let them come because they
represent hope to the world! They represent hope for mankind’s
“All of the evolutions of the earth now
in embodiment, blessed ones, would in less than one hundred years
have practically disappeared from the screen of life. Therefore,
you see what is really important on this great cosmic cusp, when
the age of Aquarius is breaking forth into the world of form,
is to have a spiritual awakening as never before sweep across
this planet. We have tried it by divine love. We have poured divine
love from our octave in such measure as you will never know until
you are ascended, yet that love has not been received to stir
but a small segment of the population.
“What then are we to do, to permit this
generation to perish? To permit its progeny to worsen? To permit
corruption to increase? To permit distortion to expand? I think

“And we today say to you with this clear
note of warning from the very center of the flame of golden illumination
here at Lake Titicaca in which we see the reflection of the whole
world order, that unless contemporary man within one year shall
make some great attempt to harness the forces of heaven which
we pledge to do—letting you know today that we will engage
by the teeth of our intentions the teeth of your intentions—unless
men shall heed this warning, the Dark Cycle shall begin January
December 31, 1967
“We are determined—the ladies of
heaven, the Karmic Board, and the angelic hosts—as we stand
by mankind, to give every assistance possible before the approach
of the time when it may be possible that the Dark Cycle shall
descend upon mankind. This may not be necessary if mankind turn
and face the light. But if they do not, we are ready and we are
preparing for the time when you individually will be held accountable
to hold the balance for this planet. This time is coming soon
and, as in the parable of the wise virgins, keep your lamps trimmed,
beloved ones; for you will need every erg of energy that is given
unto you; you will need it in that time.”
April 12, 1968
“I want you to know, then, that the International
Resource Conference is planned to be an enormous activity of light
for this planet to prevent the Dark Cycle from beginning . . .
December 30, 1968
“Whereas we have said that the Dark Cycle
will start on January 18, 1969, unless mankind does something
to reverse it, we are this day mindful of the tremendous gift
of your love that you have given throughout this class and we
are hopeful that something can be done to stay the hand of that
activity of destructivity and to replace it by a constructive
momentum that will sweep the world with the torch of God’s
