As Lord Buddha explained, the great sacrifices of the guardians and volunteers is to make sacred their own energies of life experience that the law has commanded to be redeemed. Thus the soul prepares for the ascension, the instrument is made more perfect for the masters, and the race is tried in faith by seeing the professed representatives in the toils of sanctification seemingly distraught and diseased. Is distress necessary to your progress? No! However We must change the conditions of consciousness that make it seem necessary. Man learns thru grace, thru experience or thru suffering. Each soul may choose his teacher. Energy qualified brings an effect. What ia already done can be undone thanks to the violet flame. What is presently being done can be qualified harmoniously when the soul learns grace and humility.
The soul has qualified energy thru the mental, emotional, etheric and physical bodies in all ages. The return energies flow back into the particular body which sent them forth. Some suffering is therefore purely mental, some emotional, some etheric and some physical. The purification of the inner bodies does help to prevent further misqualification. The use of the flame of mercy to requalify returning energy does transmute so much of the mass accumulation coming home to find freedom. However, the invocation of the nature of God does eventually help the soul to live in a state of harmlessness in the present.
The doors of your own consciousness and world are opened to discord only from within. There is not a lifestream incarnate nor a son of Heaven that can enter the world or drive the energy of their own auras into the very least of the sons of men unless the individual himself opens the door thru thought, word or feeling. If God be for you, what power then against? If there is anything that fires My soul, it is the acceptance of imperfection as an instrument of God's will. I know that Will; I embody it! It is My service to life to make every man, woman and child on this planet acquainted with the fact that God never did, never will and never never intended any suffering or limitation to be the teacher of the right use of life-energy.
Yours--from the fiery heart of the first realm where only perfection is allowed to be thought, felt, experienced and externalized and where every consciousness must accept only perfection as the divine order and edict for each electron, each spirit, each planet and each galaxy. A fiery group We are, I remind you, but a loyal one--loyal to the will of God! Your M
I AM required from time to time to bring before the remembrance of the chelas and blessed lifestreams who chose voluntarily to loose the anchor which tied their respective barks to the comparative safety of their chosen shore on life's journey the purpose which We serve, the cause which We have promulgated and the end to which We have dedicated the continuous flow of Our energy, attention and life.
The endeavor to break the natural silence which has been woven out of the very energies of the human consciousness and which actually mutes the voice of the Presence and the counsel of god was solely to reach the outer consciousness of individuals who have professed a more than ordinary interest in setting life free. Thru this profession of interest We had reason enough to request the release of a dispensation whereby the cosmic law would allow Us to invest Our energies in communication with various individuals who might if so inspired and interested help Us to spread the word and carry the light to a greater number of self-conscious individuals at this time.
All Our plans designs, hopes and suggestions are builded around this one endeavor--to set life free by the incorporation of the individual energies of incarnate chelas who knowing what We are doing, choose to cooperate in that service and assist Us in opening every door possible for the increase of the volumer of radiation and instruction which is prepared and ready for distribution.
As in the days at Camelot each one earnest and sincere in himself sees right according to the natural momentums of centuries of life experience. the measure is simple indeed by which the efficacy of each such an one's service may be checked by himself at any hour or in retrospect in any given day. One should ask himself each day: how much of life outside of myself have I benefitted by increasing the store of mankind's wisdom, either in preparation of Our words for distribution by conscious application or by homely courtesy, kindness and consideration or by offering a helping hand?
When the chelas can look toward the goal and endeavor to sublimate their own energies and harness them for such efficacious endeavour as their own developed momentums allow in order to prepare for Us a harmonious, balanced, pliable and efficient instrument, We can truly go ahead.
Certain demands that rise from the hearts of men open the door to Us to set into motion those activities which will result in a blessing and a specific outpouring. Thus the race can be benefitted, as well as the chosen chelas trained for future service, when the pressure of energies of greater numbers of people will form the theaters of their experience. Our initial interest centered in preparing an impersonal organ thru which We might present the law and the endeavors of the Brotherhood--and if We were successful in securing the cooperation of some unascended beings--We intended to gradually draw them into conscious cooperation and service with Our endeavors. However, history tells the tale. The surge of energy and the interests of the students required that We provide centers in which the earnest ones could immediately set into motion their newfound knowledge of the law. The rising up of the cooperative group activities immediately was more than We anticipated yet We could not deny such expansion. Therefore We endeavored thru the lifestreams particularly prepared for such service to provide a way and means by which the stimulus of class endeavor could be offered to those who chose to avail themselves of the opportunity. Because of this response from unascended beings the Maha Chohan Himself saw an opportunity of establishing the transmission classes and began the preparation of those spiritual forcefields which can and will be conductors of qualified energies of the sacred fire. The radiation from the fire temples is already being drawn thru the substance of such dedicated foci. This in itself is a tremendous accomplishment which We had not thought possible for at least ten years after the initial impulse of Our new endeavor!
These individuals who have shown deep interest in Our service have demanded a greater release of the material than it has yet been possible to prepare for distribution, but We have endeavored thru willing chelas to do what We might to respond to that upreaching call from mankind for more light. It was thus that there was born the idea of bestowing on certain lifestreams the opportunity of carrying the Word to the people, each contributing according to his own development and understanding and giving the stimulation of his own convictions to the seekers where they desired assistance. Messengers were designated each with a background and heritage which could be of inestimable value to Our cause, each with certain separate and specific services to be rendered in a cooperative and kindly manner.
You know, I have always loved the stars and planets. They are all placed by divine intelligence, each one contributing its light and glory to the firmament and no one desiring to live within the orbit of another. The constancy of the formation of the constellations depends entirely upon beautiful courtesy. Orion stands today before the sight of men as He stood revealed centuries ago when I looked upward thru the darkened night in order to chart My course across the wasteland to the cave at Bethlehem. If the shining stars that make up his belt and the outline of his form had insisted on being elsewhere, the constellation would long since have disintegrated into nothingness and many a man charting his course by the heavens would have been sorely confused by this instability of design.
It is not easy for many men and women of different backgrounds to blend their so separate selves in cooperative endeavor for the good of the whole or even to acknowledge merit in the souls of each other. I know, for in the school where I studied astronomy there were some 40 good initiates with whom I shared My living as well as My studies. 9 of them decided to come with Me to follow the star to Bethlehem but 8 returned, troubled with the tremors described by the caravan leader in his depicting the hazardous journey ere we got underway. In that life I also learned about community living and I do not speak amiss when I say with feeling that the violence of human feeling is far more destructive than the sped arrow, the moving bullet or the thrown lance or spear which in an instant do their work and finish their task.
Let Me turn for a moment to the activity of drawing forth the radiation of the masters thru the spoken word to elaborate upon the reason which forms the background for the actions by which the masters' counsel is earned. If unascended lifestreams can prove to the cosmic law that they are willing to render a balance in impersonal service to life for a more than ordinary release of instruction, We can secure a grant to bring the Word to the people in classwork, then incorporating it into written form. If We cannot receive such a guarantee from the people thru manifest service, it necessarily limits the amount of energy the law will allow various members of the Hierarchy to invest in classwork or the written word. This is in itself a protection for the recipients. You see, such blessings received--unless woven into some benefit for the race--become obligatory karma of future time. these particular blessings are not the earned merit of the individual or race but are granted dispensations released because some sponsor has persuaded the Karmic Board that such invested energy will hasten the evolution of the planet and its peoples.
All of you today suffer from such obligatory karma. Those of you who do not have financial freedom one day had much wealth to incorporate in God's plan and withheld it or used it freely for personal pleasures. Others who have limitations of mind and body had at one time perfect health and opportunity to serve God but used these minds and bodies for baser ends. Some who complain of lack of inspiration and God-peace had both in the past but did not abide in the promptings of their Presence to further a cause that was held in the hopeful hands of some Brothers and Sisters of Heaven at that time. Now when you would serve there is neither that peace nor direction which you feel is essential to your success. None may cry foul that they would if they could. Forgive you each one for the limitations that make you less pliable instruments in Our hands now that your heart desires to serve! However, let not bitterness not scorn nor ridicule nor the germs of spiritual pride further sully your soul's light if you endeavor to work with other similarly fettered spirits in a common cause; better that you remove yourself from the cooperative endeavors and in the proud solitude of your own opinion of self find your way to Him.
Mankind is hungry for understanding and light. Our desire is to balance the gift of the instruction to the students by the incorporation of their energies in song, decree, affirmation and visualization. Thus each release will have been paid for in full to the cosmic law and the individual unit in himself be progressed, not lulled into a happy reverie upon new points of law and promises which to become fact must be incorporated into consciousness thru application. That is why it is important to have some cllasswork preceding "an address", as I see you have chosen to call Our Word to you. Classwork allows the individual the opportunity to incorporate his own energies into impersonal service lest he have spiritual indigestion in assimilating much knowledge, and using no spiritual exercise for the benefit of others dies of surfeit.
The more subtle reason for such preparatory classwork will interest only the unselfish ones--the protection of the leader thru which the current flows. The running up and elevation of the vibratory action of such a serving consciousness should be as carefully guarded as the musician tunes up and guards his prepared instrument of expression after it has been keyed to its perfect note. From any audience flows energy and attention, the substance and consciousness of each one's world, and this focalizes upon the object that for the moment entertains the senses whether it be a picture, a flame or a person.
In the early years even in the ritual services of the church there have always been provided assisting individuals thru whose very bodies the currents and forces from the people are supposed to pass and thru these individuals all the vibrations from the congregation were to be transmuted and literally strained or sieved until only the purest energies of the group were released into the aura of the celebrant or the priestess. In the present activity that is why it is always wise for every sanctuary director or leader to have strong spiritual guards in the first seats of the audience and these people if they are properly instructed and trained allow themselves to be purifying agents for the feelings of the people as well as giving their strength and faith to the individual drawing the flame. The loyalty and love of such guardians determines their efficacy in such a position.
