A Pearl of Great Price—Nicholas Roerich
"Let a string
of pearls be wrapped around the globe of the world. And
let each pearl
be for one of you that you might carry my pearl in your
heart, that you might know
its inner significance and magnificence, and that you might
that all things must ultimately be revealed."—Mother
"I promise you this: Neither God
nor the Great White Brotherhood will ever desert the one
who stands steadfast and makes the call. Listen well: stands steadfast
and makes the call.
One must have both steadfastness of purpose and the immediate response
of the call.
This is the Alpha and the Omega of your protection. We stand by
We obey the Law as we must also remain true to the mantle of our
"If the light-bearers on Terra will
valiantly pursue the power of the sun
for supplanting all powers of the moon, there will be a new dawn
of life on Terra."—Kuthumi
II, iv, 21. "To construct a bridge
from the spirit (of a man) to the Brotherhood was not so difficult,
but to establish a normal link between the Brotherhood and the people
is unspeakably difficult." —Leaves of Morya's Garden
II, xi, 1. "Also, bribery deprives
a man of the confidence of the Brotherhood,
because the treason of such people is great. Also, lack of compassion
makes a man unfit
for achievement, because such souls are lacking in courage."
—Leaves of Morya's Garden 1925
"You may recall the occasion when
pursued by a numerous enemy, Abu Bakr
—who was accompanying the prophet in his flight—trembled
to think of their fate and said,
'Look at the number of enemies that is overtaking us. What shall
we two do
against these heavy odds?' Without a moment's reflection the prophet
his faithful companion by saying, 'No, Abu Bakr, we are three for
God is with us!'"
—Mohandas Gandhi, Young India, October 10, 1929
"And it shall come to pass in the
last days, saith God, I will pour out of my Spirit
upon all flesh: and your sons and your daughters shall prophesy,
and your young men shall see visions, and your old men shall dream
And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out in those
days of my Spirit;
and they shall prophesy: And I will shew wonders in heaven above,
and signs in the earth
beneath; blood, and fire, and vapour of smoke: The sun shall be
turned into darkness,
and the moon into blood, before the great and notable day of the
Lord come: And it shall
come to pass, that whosoever shall call on the name of the Lord
shall be saved."—Acts 2:17-21
"The eyes of God are upon
you—motto of the Temple of Illumination."
—Lord Lanto, Septemebr 24, 1967
" . . . It is to the Great Pyramid that we direct your attention.
And we reveal that the community of the Great White Brotherhood
is symbolized in that manifestation and that the foundation of the
pyramid that remains is awaiting the capstone.
"The capstone, then, as the all-seeing eye
of God that shall not be removed from the earth, is indeed composed
of the initiates of the sacred fire. And hear this, my beloved.
These initiates, each one placing upon the altar the white cube
of the heart, provide the building blocks of that mighty capstone.
Because these intitiates have a more than ordinary oneness than
all others who have built the pyramid from the foundation to its
present manifestation, therefore in the manifestation of the capstone
their white cubes become as one single stone, one single capstone.
"This is the mystery of the capstone—that
it can never be taken apart. Though it is composed of many stones,
these by the alchemy of the Great God become one single stone to
hold the all-seeing eye of God.
" . . . Why do you suppose, then, that the
capstone is missing? It is because, very simply: There has never
manifested in this octave a body of souls unascended who could make
that pledge of eternal unity, of fusion! Thus, the pyramid remains
without its capstone and humanity remain without the light to guide
"In our octave, the real meaning of the Great
White Brotherhood is that we are one. Every ascended master, every
cosmic being has become the white stone—and
the fusion of selfhood in God is understood far, far beyond the
understanding that you now bear.
"O my beloved hearts, this longing of God
for oneness is like the longing of the pyramid for its capstone.
Do you understand that God has no reason to not desire the fulfillment
and the union of the son and of the daughter? And when you say,
'I and my Father are one,' you must understand that the Father has
already said, 'I and my Son are one.'
"And therefore, my beloved, if you dare to
say, 'I and my Father are one,' you have begun to climb a ladder
that reaches far into infinity—beyond
the eye, beyond the understanding. And when you finish climbing
that ladder you do not find, as Jack and the beanstalk, the giant
that must be slain, but you find instead the capstone–and
there the fusion, and there the alchemy, and there the initiation.
"For if you are truly one with the Father,
then you are one with all of his Sons in manifestation. And I say
to you that that oneness is oneness. And oneness is oneness, and
how can you describe oneness except by your experience? I would
attempt to make you understand oneness, and yet you do not know
the oneness that I know.
" . . . Your conceptualization of science
tells you that even in the most solid matter there are wide spaces
and universes between the atoms within the molecules and between
the molecules that make up substance. Therefore, you can visualize
this capstone and yourself as an individual atom supporting the
molecules that compose this crystalline substance, dazzling white,
of this stone.
"And you can begin to realize that this fusion
of your identity is nothing more than your occupation of an office
in the cosmic hierarchy whereby you agree to be a fixed star in
the mighty cosmos of infinity, occupying the position of your office
as a sun center of teeming life, as the manifest presence of the
unfed flame for millions of developing evolutions.
"Understand, then, the meaning of the capstone
that is the Great White Brotherhood, the capstone that becomes the
spiritual cosmos that is set upon the pyramid of the matter cosmos.
Understand, then, the exalted freedom that comes from the commitment
to be fused into this mighty capstone.
"Beloved ones, see how I have taken you from
a limited awareness of fusion with the capstone to the unlimited
awareness of cosmic freedom. Therefore, in the ultimate sense, that
which appears to be not freedom is the highest freedom that God
himself can know.
"Why, my beloved, God is fused to every part
of his creation—imprisoned, as
it were, in every molecule of life which you call the Spirit/Matter
cosmos, heaven and earth. Would you not say, then, that God himself
is the ultimate prisoner, the greatest slave, the one bound in chains
by the very free will that he has given to the creation to harness
the light that is himself? And yet is not God simultaneously the
being who is most free?
"Can you truly understand freedom? Dare you
walk this path of freedom? Dare you be the follower of Saint Germain?
" . . . My beloved, the cycles, the
rituals, the freedom must be fulfilled. And I AM Cyclopea, and I
AM a teacher of science and of truth—especially this science
of freedom. Thus the vision I have given to you is a vision of freedom
to be the capstone."

" . . . the thought of the pearl of great price for which, when
he found it, a man went and sold all that he had to buy that one pearl.
That pearl is the Causal Body of the Divine Mother. That pearl, created
layer upon layer by the sacrifice of Her children, is the great Causal
Body that you may have at your disposal, whose energies you might
use if you will but call that the Causal Body of the Cosmic Virgin
be released to you at any hour of the day or night that you may require
wisdom, energy, love, power, healing, truth, science, and all of the
virtues of the Godhead.
"Thus in order to gain the pearl of
great price, there is one requirement. You must go and sell the
human ego, the human consciousness. Sell it to the Sacred Fire;
put it to the torch; lay it upon the altar of God. Having given
all, you shall receive all. And if you give only in part, your return
must only be in part. This is the Law; this is the prophecy; this
is my message to you this day."

"In an age of great darkness it requires
the sponsorship of the ascended masters with their chelas to seal
a lifestream in so great a light, so great a salvation, and to keep
that one protected and in balance spiritually and physically midst
the pressures of planetary darkness and of the fallen ones in their
spacecraft who would hold this entire planetary body hostage to
the darkness of Death and Hell."
| Saint Germain
July 6, 1985
"The teachings of the ascended masters incorporate the path
that the mystical body of God has walked through all eternity. It
is not even unique to this planetary system. It is the same descent
of the soul unto the grand experiment in freedom and free will,
meeting all forces that pretend to be the adversary when the only
true enemy is within. And that is the ultimate knowledge: Man, know
thyself and know thyself as God, and know that the only foe that
can ever overcome in thy life is thine own fear or internal schism
or compromise or failure to surrender truly to God.
"Is this a church? I tell you, nay,
it is more. It is a movement. It is a revolution back to the fundamentals
of every avatar who has launched a path of freedom, developed specifically
for the lifewaves or nations or times when they have come. Thus,
you find nothing peculiar about saying a Buddhist chant or a Hail
Mary or an Our Father or communing with Archangel Michael or speaking
to Gabriel—nothing peculiar at all. Well, it was spoken of
the Hebrews that they were a peculiar people, and what was unique
about them was that they knew their God."
" . . . I come to bear your burden, to
relieve and deliver you, to quicken you to the realization that the
snakeskins must be shed quickly and that you must know who you are
" . . . While there is yet time, I expand
and accelerate for you time, space, energy, consciousness and eternity.
Thus, fulfill all things. Be prepared and be at peace.
"Blessed ones, had it not been for the Great White Brotherhood
in the earth and on the surface, this earth could have already become
another Maldek, another asteroid belt—not by any particular
collision, though that collision should have occurred; for earth’s
vulnerability is also to those very forces colliding as in the coming
of ancient planets or meteorites splitting and sawing asunder the
AM Mary. And I AM here to stay till all these things be fulfilled
"So it is that one teacher among men wore a mirror around his
neck, that those disciples who came to him would see themselves
and realize it is always the self that the individual projects into
the teacher. Such is the wisdom of the wise ones of old. Such is
the wisdom of the Brotherhood."
"Both unascended masters and Ascended Masters together with
their chelas (disciples) make up the Great White Brotherhood under
whose sponsorship I serve. The term “white” refers not
to race, but to the white light that surrounds these saints in heaven
and on earth, who are the Mystical Body of God. They are the 'great
multitude' witnessed by John the Revelator, which no man could number,
of all nations, and kindreds, and people, and tongues, [who] stood
before the throne, and before the Lamb, clothed with white robes,
and palms in their hands; and cried [i.e., decreed] with a loud
voice, saying, Salvation to our God which sitteth upon the throne,
and unto the Lamb . . .
"These are they which came out of great
tribulation, and have washed their robes, and made them white in
the blood of the Lamb. These are the saints robed in white who have
ascended to the throne of God, which is the goal of life for all
who have descended from God. We who gather here for this Wesak celebration
are those who, by the path of discipleship following in the footsteps
of Buddha and Christ, are striving to accelerate the light in our
body temple that we, too, might be among the ascending ones who
shall one day enter in to the Holy of holies and be received of
the Lord through the ritual of the ascension."
"Love is the reason for being of The Summit Lighthouse . .
"Divine Love raises all to the divine ideal
and the divine plan.
"Divine Love is uncompromising. Know this,
beloved. It is uncompromising! Thus, many do not understand Divine
Love. Many will accuse you of selfishness when it is Divine Love
in all its power that you are manifesting.
"Divine Love is coming to the altar of God
and directing that fire into the earth. Divine Love of the Holy
Spirit, as you know from Pentecost itself, is the judgment of abortion
and the abortionist, those who abort the divine plan and life in
any sector of the cosmos . . .
"Divine Love is a mystery that you must find
out but you will never do so by taking apart the petals of the flower.
Only by allowing the flower of Divine Love to unfold in your heart
will you discover its mystery, and you cannot know the mystery until
" . . . This activity is the culmination of
all others we have sponsored. It is intended to be the culmination
of all dispensations that have gone forth in 25,800 years. It can
be all that you make it, all that you will it to be, all that you
desire. You are the physical matrix. You are indeed The Summit Lighthouse.
"Thus, remember that Archangel Michael did say upon the founding
of this organization that this activity does have the greatest potential
and endowment of any he had sponsored since he did bring Home the
first root race. That is the cosmic matrix. That is the almost unlimited
potential of this activity."
" . . . Would you be startled, blessed heart, if you were to
look up and behold the most compassionate eyes, a face of such tenderness,
such mastery, such wonder of love gazing down upon you as a guardian
of the ages?—as friend, as that Guru-lover of your soul who
knows that by and by as you respond to the wooings of that love
you also will enter into that cosmic identity, as the Mediator and
the one who stands to benefit from the mediation forevermore are
locked in the divine embrace and are one inseparable union.
"E pluribus unum—the sealing of a message,
a communiqué that has not been heard by the American people.
E pluribus unum—'one out of many.' Thus in every age Christed
ones arise as a single lily—one out of many.
"A Christed one is indeed the culmination
and the fruit of the collective Christ consciousness of a nation.
When a nation reaches for that zenith of the light, it has earned
the good karma of having a single son of God rise in its midst."
" . . . The preservation of the presence
of the Great White Brotherhood in the Earth is our determination,
for upon that presence in the Earth of that Brotherhood does depend
the entire future of a planet.
" . . . Tarry not and do not take for
granted that by many years of study or by none you will so easily
enter into the gates of heaven once again. For every step must be
fulfilled and that which has been sown must be reaped, and that
by the sacred fire with all diligence.
"I believe that the ascended hosts and our bands have made
abundantly clear the options of the hour. Therefore, beloved, I
can tell you that our dictations and our discussions concerning
these subjects will shortly be coming to a conclusion; and therefore
the lightbearers of the Earth in the future will have to read these
documents and will have to know that that which has been given has
been given, what has been spoken has been spoken, what has been
written has been written, and it must be used and it must be implemented
for the further initiations to come."

"Beloved hearts, the realization of this God-goal (re-opening
the Mystery School) and the willingness of Maitreya to accept this
activity and Messenger and students in sacred trust to keep the flame
of the Mystery School does therefore gain for planet Earth and her
evolutions a dispensation from the hierarchies of the Central Sun.
For you see, when there is about to become physical through dispensation
of the Cosmic Christ the renewal of the open door whereby souls—as
students of light who apprentice themselves to the Cosmic Christ—may
come and go from the planes of earth to the planes of heaven and back
again (in consciousness, in vibration), this is the open door of the
coming of the golden age."

”You must understand, beloved that this is the activity of
the Great White Brotherhood on earth; you must realize you are dealing
with masters who have the full mastery of the Law. And they do not
miss this irony of the human will, this stubbornness and this folly
of thinking, 'I can fool the Lord. I can fool the Messenger. I can
fool my Christ Self.'
"These remarks are given to you because we
desire to see the purging of the four lower bodies and the community
of disciples that all might come into an understanding that this
is a path of love and not a path of dead ritual or the dead letter
of the law though the letter of the law be vital.
"Is not a path of mimicry,
by performing certain acts as though the acts themselves contained
the devotion, you may come into consonance with the Truth. The devotion,
the reality, the sincerity, and the Truth must be in your heart.
"And if you know there is no purity in the
heart, I say meditate in the heart of your I AM Presence and call
to us and we will swiftly bring to your attention the cause and
core of the absence of that purity; [we will teach you the way of
the Christ and The Buddha], which must truly lead you to the innocence
[of soul and heart] required for the receiving of the teachings
of Lord Maitreya in the Garden of Eden.
" . . . we can not abrogate
the Law of the octaves, we cannot abrogate the free will of evolutions."

they don't believe in nothing—they believe in anything."—G.
