"Were it not for this Messenger clothed upon with the mantle
of Lord Gautama, you would not receive direct instruction and initiation.
And it would be [more] arduous for you to make your
way to the etheric retreats without the sponsorship of that mantle
holding the balance for you.
"When the Messenger did
come before the Lords of Karma to receive the assignment of this
life, she was given the opportunity of two paths: the one, to become
a Guru in the Himalayas with a small band of disciples, unknown
to the world and therefore far from the reaches of the arrows and
slings of outrageous fortune, far from the attack of the fallen
ones, the attack of the press and the agencies of government and
the people who are angry against the Light; and the other, to come
forward and be in the public eye and therefore be vulnerable to
every level of opposition from all planes.
"She was shown how only
a few disciples would benefit from her mission in the serenity of
the Himalayan fastnesses. She was shown the many thousands of souls
who would receive benefit, who would have the opportunity for the
ascension and who could be sponsored through her mantle should she
take the course that would place her, then, at the forefront of
the battle and subject to all onslaughts coming out of Church and
"You can see the path
that she has chosen. Therefore El Morya did state that more than
95 percent of those who have found this path and who are ascending
to God would not have had this teaching had she not made this decision.
"Thus, [as a recompense
for] your chelaship unto the Ascended Masters and unto the mantle
of the Guru that is borne by the Messenger, remember to keep the
flame of protection of the office and of the body and the mind and
the heart and the service and the mission of the Messenger that
you and millions of others may be liberated by the work of the Divine
Mother through her and through you."
Messenger of the Great White Brotherhood
Elizabeth Clare Prophet
"Therefore I have great joy to announce to you that, by the
edict of the Four and Twenty Elders and the Cosmic Council before
whom I have pleaded the cause of America and this body of devotees,
there has been completed at this harvest conference which you have
dedicated to me the final balancing of the karma of your own messenger.
"And therefore, in the presence of that light of the one-hundred-percent
balance of that karma, there is opportunity for the entire Spirit
of the Great White Brotherhood to anchor through the messenger untold
momentums of light and victory and freedom even while she then is
able to bear a more than ordinary measure of your own personal karmawhich
she is so delighted to do to see you accelerate on the Path that
you, too, might attain your victory!
"Now, is this not a victory for
the light, blessed hearts?
"Beloved ones, the messengers
concernexpressed to me when I announced to her some months
ago this opportunity and this great need of the hourwas what
would be the divine
plan for the sustainment of the messenger in embodiment. And I said
to her, with a twinkle in my eye: There is enough karma to go around!
It is like fried potatoesenough for everyone!
"And truly it is so. For this,
then, signals the opportunity for each and every one of you to realize
that the Guru incarnate is able to receive those portions of your
karma that are particularly trying even unto your victory
over the dweller on the threshold of consciousness . . .
"And I can assure you that the
messenger is first to acknowledge that it is truly and indeed the
victory of allof all chelas everywherethat one might
bear the light for all, and not in truth anyones attainment
in the sense that anyone could suppose to attain by mere works to
this attainment of light. But it is by gracegrace that is
a holy offering of a gift from God. And therefore it is also opportunity
to the messenger and to all of you who count yourselves chelas of
the messengers and, through them, of all of us who are ascended
. . .

"It is the flaming heart of the Mother embodied in the friend,
the loved one, the ministering one that provides that help when the
individual himself must give all of his strength and energy, all of
his drive to the making of the mark at that precise moment. And therefore
even Christ on the fourteen stations of the cross still had the balance
of his mother holding the flame of watchfulness, of encouragement,
of beauty and of the divine memory of the end that is known from the
|Lady Master Nada
"Thus there comes new responsibility. And there comes new opportunity.
And therefore there is a sun and there are light rays and there
is a fervor in this heart to bind you to Almighty God and to see
you through unto the victorious hour of your ascension in the light.
"And therefore, fear not. For
the messenger is firmly rooted in the Rock and in the very earth
body and will not quit this planetary body until commanded to do
so by the mighty I AM Presence. For, you see, this is the commission
of Lanello spoken a number of years ago. It was a command to the
staff of this organization to aim for that fifty-one percent and
then to aim for one-hundred percent and to demonstrate the fullness
and the completeness of the Light in this incarnation.
"Therefore we beginthat
one may pass through the door. And one passing through the door
of the sheepfold, all then may pass through. And through this victory,
beloved hearts, you can set your mark upon balancing one-hundred
percent of your karma in this life.
"I tell you, all things are possible
with God! And the messenger would be the first to tell you that
this is indeed an extraordinary eventone not anticipated by
her. But, beloved hearts, the very need of the hour bestows opportunity.
And therefore you can see that when you recognize world need and
give yourself to the path of service, wondrous miracles can come
into your life. And more miracles can be wrought by you than even
you dream of.
ones, this is only the beginning! This victory of the Brotherhood
across America promises to be a bonfire promised by the fiery salamandersand
there is a cleanup coming through the sylphs, through the undines,
and through the gnomes."
"Blessed hearts, it is a shame to turn aside my mouthpiece.
It is a shame to look at human idiosyncrasies or the pressures upon
this instrument and to judge by some imagined divine standard that
the Messenger does not measure up. Beloved hearts, early in her
training—very early, in an hour when the burden of the bearing
of world karma was too great for Mark Prophet to bear—this
Messenger, by the age of twenty-three, was bearing the burden of
half of the weight of planetary karma with Mark.
"We do not condemn for situations that
may have occurred of burden to our Messengers in the attempt to
bear this cross for you. Truly, what freedom of youth had been hers
was gone in that moment when passing through Georgetown, driven
by Mark, the first 10-percent weight came upon her body and she
cried out and said to him, 'Mark, what has come upon me?' And so
he did tell her, 'A percentage of the planetary weight.'
"Beloved hearts, when this does come
upon an individual all other interests of life are surrendered—no
more time for playing the piano, for painting paintings of art,
for doing those things of a social nature. And even the simple joys
of family must be set aside for the keeping of the flame upon the
altar of humanity.
"It was with the passing of Mark that
the full weight came upon the Messenger of that planetary karma
as well as the initiation of the descent into Death and Hell and
specifically the assignment to deal with those individuals who had
plagued the house of Rakoczy and the entire Great White Brotherhood
for centuries—personal enemies of mine and of yourselves who
must be dealt with."
Beloved Guru Ma
"What you have witnessed [in the life of the Messenger] is
this, that by diligent application of the Law, by responsibility
and faithfulness without flaw, there has come to pass with the obedience
to the covenants of Light the balancing of that karma. Though by
grace it is come, it could not come as an exception to the Law.
There are no exceptions to the law of the ascension or the balancing
"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 familysimple
servants, kings and queens, priests 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.
"This one is a part of the One
that also lives in you. This is the proof. This is the Victory,
beloved hearts. This is the mighty action of the Law, which you
also might prove. Take heart, then, and do not consider the weight
as [being] so weighty as to obstruct the penetration of illuminations
ray, the piercing ray of the Mind of God within you to see what
is to be balanced in this hour of your own cycles appearing.
"Welcome the angels with their vials, even the Chohans and
the Archangels, the Holy Kumaras and Elohim! Welcome them, for,
beloved hearts, when they come, each time they come with each [succeeding]
cycle there [will] be less and less and less within the vial. And
one day you will see, as the Messenger has seen, the angel of the
Lord pouring out the vial and nothing pours out but purest Light,
liquid Light, golden elixir of God. What rejoicing, then, that you
have been willing to take this path [of karma yoga], to stay steadfast
on this path [determined to balance 100 percent of your karma] until
every vial of every servant-son is emptied and you yourself are
ascending to the Sun!"
"It is most certainly the greatest thrill of my life and
lifetime to be reunited with the souls of light of all ages, of
all mystery schools, of all the periods that we have been through--the
history of this planet, some of which we know and some of which
we don't—for such a long, long time. And for many embodiments
we suffered and served alone, and God has brought us together
to be victorious together.
"I have very specific memories of all of
this and therefore my gratitude is extremely profound. You yourselves
may have the awakening to these memories and realize just how
far you have walked, how many thousands of miles you have come,
to be reunited with your brothers and sisters. And there is nothing
more precious in the whole universe than love and the love we
have for one another. And one thing that the years add up to is
many long friendships, many long loves, deepening loves, many
experiences together, many experiences of bearing one another's
burdens, of seeing one another through many difficult periods,
of growing in wisdom and getting stronger and stronger, and seeing
how the organization has reflected the individual strength of
"So life has become extremely rich for me
in knowing every one of you. Every one of you I cherish so dearly.
And if I have any pain, it is that I cannot spend moments and
hours speaking with you on an individual basis, because my heart
is so much a part of each and every one of you. This is the meaning
of community to me. I simply thank you with all of my heart for
your presence and for your knowingness that sustains your presence
"I wanted to say to you that the example
of chelas that are in the community--and that includes staff,
those who live throughout this state and keepers of the flame
throughout the world, you are all community—and the reason
you have staying power in this organization is because you come
to the levels of chelaship and you decide to put down the element
of the human pride or the human ego and choose the light and the
reality of your Christhood. Otherwise, you would not be here this
evening. You would not be serving with the Brotherhood.
"And that divides the Light from the Darkness,
the chela from the nonchela, and that is why the standards are
high. That is why you've been picked over, and you're the best
strawberries in the batch. These same tests many have decided
are not for them, and they leave and they go their way. And that
is what El Morya wants. That's what the masters want. They don't
want any excess. They prune the rose bush every spring or fall,
whenever it's supposed to be pruned. And they say, "We only
want the best because our service is for the saving of a planet."
"So you are here because you will to be
here. And I know who isn't here and I know where each one left
off the path. It was that point of pride, that point of rebellion
that they knew better.
"So I can't thank
you enough, our beloved staff, my beloved family. It's simply
a wonderful day to celebrate another half a century coming up."

In 1973 Elizabeth C. Prophet led a small group
up Pike's Peak, Colorado
to anchor the flame of Mu for America
The mantle of the Guru
On July 2, 1977, Padma Sambhava bestowed the mantle
of Guru upon the Messenger, Elizabeth Clare Prophet. He said: "The
Ascended Masters come as a living witness to proclaim in this hour
that the Guru-chela relationship can now be sustained in this octave
through the flame of the heart of the Mother."
On July 1, 1992, beloved Omega said: "Beloved
ones, what we offer you today is a very direct and living contact
to us through the Messenger and through the mantle of Guru that
is upon her solidly and sealed . . . The Path and the relationship
are open to you as long as you will maintain the single foundational
quality, which is love."
On February 27, 1997, the Messenger explained:
"I am always wearing the mantle of the
Guru. Wherever I go, it is present with me. Whether at the altar,
at home, in a social setting, on an airplane or even when I am sleeping,
I still wear the mantle. The mantle carries the weight of the Mighty
I AM Presence. That is the meaning of the Guru. It is the Presence
of the I AM THAT I AM. The Ascended Masters use me to reach chelas,
often in the most unlikely places. I reach them with whatever they
need at that moment. Sometimes it's comforting love. Sometimes it's
illumination. And sometimes it is the chastening fire . . .
"Under the Piscean dispensation, our Holy
Christ Self mitigates the sacred fire. The mantle of the Guru stands
in the place of the Holy Christ Self until the chela has attained
union with the Christ. So the Guru is the instrument of the fire
of the I AM Presence or the Ascended Master who disciplines the
chela . . .
"God has given me a mantle so that I can reinforce
your Holy Christ Self until you can sustain that contact. I can
also reinforce your I AM Presence. Until you balance a certain amount
of your karma, the way you maintain the contact with the Holy Christ
Self and the I AM Presence is to call for that tie to be reinforced
by the momentum of my lifestream and your call to the Ascended Masters.
The Ascended Masters will assist you. But the reason the Ascended
Masters have given me the mantle is because the mantle needs to
be on someone in physical embodiment who is able to reach out and
touch other people in physical embodiment."
" . . . I commend you to the keeping of the Diamond Heart of
Mary and Morya that this Messenger through whom I speak may be with
you all the days that she has called forth to extend her service
upon this planet. For this Messenger has vowed not to take her leave
of the planet until all Lightbearers destined to ascend under this
dispensation have already ascended to heaven, and then and only
then shall she be the last to enter that open portal and then it
be shut. May it so come to pass, beloved, because you have realized
the necessity of being the Diamond Heart in this octave."

I AM the Witness
The Burning Flame of the Son of God in My Heart
I, Elizabeth Clare Prophet, Messenger for the
Great White Brotherhood, do witness to the chelas and the world
to the presence in my heart of my Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ.
I witness to his Sacred Heart, one with my heart. I witness to his
all-consuming love and mercy and grace upon my soul and the souls
of all true Lightbearers, all true chelas of the will of God.
I witness to the sacred fire he has placed in my
heart. It is a burning fire that kindles my soul, my chakras, all
of my house. This fire I often feel as a physical fire. And whenever
I give concentrated devotion, decrees and meditation to Jesus’
Heart within my heart and my heart in his, the burning fire increases
until it becomes such an all-consuming passion, and compassion,
that I must leave off from this ecstasy lest I be transported from
the realm of daily practicalities.
In this Pearl, our beloved Omega speaks to us of
our Home in the Great Central Sun. Our Divine Mother and Alpha have
placed a replica of it on the etheric plane over the Heart of the
Inner Retreat and it is available to us as we go to the secret chamber
of the heart each day.
This is a permanent focus. Before you retire at
night you can ask to be taken to the etheric Retreat of the Divine
Mother at the Royal Teton Ranch and the Western Shamballa at the
Heart of the Inner Retreat. And while you are there, you can be
“at Home away from home” in the forcefield of our Home
in the Great Central Sun that Alpha and Omega have established over
the entire area of the conference site.
Please note that beloved Omega tells us on page
422 that “there is also the very present possibility for you
to live in that holy aura, truly that universe of Light that is
the secret chamber of the heart.” Now please reread page 422
of this Pearl.
In sealing my witness to you of the burning flame
of the Son of God in my heart, I quote from How to Know God: The
Yoga Aphorisms of Patanjali:
Concentration may also be attained by fixing the mind upon the Inner
Light, which is beyond sorrow.
The ancient yogis believed that there was an actual
center of spiritual consciousness, called “the lotus of the
heart,” situated between the abdomen and the thorax, which
could be revealed in deep meditation. They claimed that it had the
form of a lotus and that it
shone with an inner light. It was said to be “beyond
sorrow,” since those who saw it were filled with an extraordinary
sense of peace and joy.
From the very earliest times, the masters of yoga
emphasized the importance of meditating upon this lotus. “The
supreme heaven shines in the lotus of the heart,” says the
Kaivalya Upanishad. “Those who struggle and aspire may enter
there. Retire into solitude. Seat yourself on a clean spot in an
erect posture, with the head and neck in a straight line. Control
all sense-organs. Bow down in devotion to your teacher. Then enter
the lotus of the heart and meditate there on the presence of Brahman—the
pure, the infinite, the blissful.”
And in the Chandogya Upanishad we read:
Within the city of Brahman, which is the body,
there is the heart, and within the heart there is a little house.
This house has the shape of a lotus, and within it dwells that which
is to be sought after, inquired about, and realized.
What, then, is that which dwells within this little
house, this lotus of the heart? What is it that must be sought after,
inquired about, and realized?
Even so large as the universe outside is the universe
within the lotus of the heart. Within it are heaven and earth, the
sun, the moon, the lightning and all the stars. Whatever is in the
macrocosm is in this microcosm also.
All things that exist, all beings and all desires,
are in the city of Brahman; what, then, becomes of them when old
age approaches and the body dissolves in death?
Though old age comes to the body, the lotus of
the heart does not grow old. It does not die with the death of the
body. The lotus of the heart, where Brahman resides in all his glory—that,
and not the body, is the true city of Brahman. Brahman, dwelling
therein, is untouched by any deed, ageless, deathless, free from
grief, free from hunger and from thirst. His desires are right desires,
and his desires are fulfilled.
And in the Mundaka Upanishad: “Within the
lotus of the heart he dwells, where the nerves meet like the spokes
of a wheel. Meditate upon him as OM, and you may easily cross the
ocean of darkness. In the effulgent lotus of the heart dwells Brahman,
passionless and indivisible. He is pure. He is the light of all
lights. The knowers of Brahman attain him.”
This method of meditation is helpful, because
it localizes our image of the spiritual consciousness toward which
we are struggling. If the body is thought of as a busy and noisy
city, then we can imagine that, in the middle of this city, there
is a little shrine, and that, within this shrine, the Atman, our
real nature, is present. No matter what is going on in the streets
outside, we can always enter that shrine and worship. It is always
Or by meditating on the heart of an illumined soul, that is free
Let your mind dwell on some holy personality—a
Buddha, a Christ, a Ramakrishna. Then concentrate upon his heart.
Try to imagine how it must feel to be a great saint; pure and untroubled
by sense-objects, a knower of Brahman. Try to feel that the saint’s
heart has become your heart, within your own body. Here, again,
the localization of the image will be found very helpful. Both Hindus
and Christians practice this form of meditation—concentrating
not only upon the heart but also, sometimes, upon the hands and
the feet and the whole form [of a personality of the Godhead, i.e.,
an Ascended Master, or a saint].
