This Wesak post is an an excerpt from the dictation by Gautama Buddha published in the 1985 Pearl of Wisdom Vol. 28 No. 25.
Blessed ones, it has been said of old: Behold, now is the accepted time! Now is the day of salvation! What is the meaning of this Eternal Now? It is not the forever waiting of the LORD, I can assure you. For I have taken the Messenger into the point of timelessness to experience the utter collapse of time, and suddenly the awareness that all that has occurred in time is in Truth not real, for time is not in the point of Reality.
Therefore, why tarry and become the prisoner of time through karma, through inordinate desire and inordinate acts that offend me? For I am the one who is offended when thou goest out of the line of Reality.
Do you not know the eternal youth of the saints and the shining? It is because every act of Love and Light takes place in the timeless realm—yes, indeed, the ongoing cycle of cosmos, but not in time. And therefore time is not for the saint, whether on earth or in heaven. Therefore the saint can endure, for the saint is not the prisoner of time. But the sinner cannot endure. He cannot wait to expend his sinful sense and his light upon his lusts and therefore be the prisoner twice more.
Blessed ones, let not the temple be the instrument of the madness of inordinate desire, for thereby some have spent what has been counted as aeons in time. And with the passage of aeons, they have come to me again only to find I change not.
I AM the I AM. I AM the Eternal Now. In my heart is infinite opportunity for each and every chela of El Morya to transcend the former self, forged in a consciousness of time and little beginnings and even littler endings that amount to a handful of sand that the Prophet does take and raise up and pour out.
And the place of that man is known no more.
Reality Is Just Beyond the Point of Your Nose
Beloved hearts, would you rather be an endless succession of little beginnings and endings or a God in the Eternal Now? Ponder in your heart, for Reality is just beyond the point of your nose.
And what kind of nose is it? A proud nose, an ambitious one? A gross and uncaring, surfeited? And how does the nose change with the indulgences of the world, becoming thick with the imbibing of the drugs, the alcohol? How does the babe become the gross and unseemly spent one in his old age and then begin anew in a new body—in the same course, almost identical, lifetime after lifetime, never surrendering those tatters of the astral plane, surfeiting again and again?
Will the Eternal Now eternally indulge those who waltz and dance to the fiddler’s tune with Time? Time is their partner on the dance floor of life. Do they perceive the decrepitude, the old age of Father Time? Do they perceive the lines in the face? Nay! The mask he wears [is that] of the temptress, the beautiful maidens that also came to tear me from my point of the Eternal Now. For in that place I perceived Infinity and there I knew the vortex as the eye in the center of the fire infolding itself. That eye—that eye was the ordinate desire of God therefore turning and the worlds cycling to the center becoming God-identified, else consumed, one or the other.
Understand the Illusion of Time
Thus I knew that only time could capture old age, disease, and death. Where time is not, these do not occur. Thus understand the illusion of time and weary not. For, you see, those who are the prisoners of time live by the clock and the year and the day and the cycles of the moon and the rotation of the earth upon its axis and the revolutions around the sun. And these are caught. And when so many revolutions have passed, they say, “I am old. I will go to rest with my fathers.”
Yet you, beloved, in the Eternal Now may not sense such an urgency to transfer the Light (or to transmit the Teachings). But I say, take upon you the burden of those who are the prisoners of time—for compassion’s sake, for love’s sake. But enter not! For when you enter thus the striking of the midnight hour, you will quickly turn into the synthetic self and lose the power of the I AM to rescue, to deliver.
Perceive with the Eye of the Saviour
All the world is Saint Germain’s stage. Now for a moment, remain offstage. Inject light, consciousness, support to those on stage. Allow them to see your face now and then, but do not join those on the world stage who dance to the tune of folly and the wearisome beat—repetition of nonsense, ad nauseam.
Beloved, perceive with the eye of the Saviour. For I perceive you have been convinced—somewhat, if not utterly—that the Saviour dwells within you. How can he be the same yesterday and today and forever and still be in time?
Thus, the key to adeptship is the conquering of time—not through the ignoring or the ignorance of time, but through the fulfillment of its mandates and the transcending thereof. Thus reach out the hand of the Divine Helper to those so imprisoned and realize you are emissaries of the Sun.

This post is an an excerpt from the dictation by Helios published in the 1991 Pearl of Wisdom Vol. 34 No. 40.
You have heard the “Victory Symphony” and I tell you that victory, beloved, is the fanfare of our presence. And this music has been given to Beethoven by ourselves that you might have the spirit of victory in sound.
I say, play it and play it again and play it every day until you have victory in every way in your personhood, in your church, in this nation and in this planet. And play it, beloved, in this court when you shout your fiats of the judgment, that victory might come shining through. And see that victory descending as a mighty V that parts all darkness, which can no longer coagulate–no, beloved!
Let the full power of the “Victory Symphony” descend into your very midst and let it be the power of that music which does amplify the sounding of your word and the sounding of our light in your heart!
We come, beloved, that we might face you heart to heart and help those precious hearts to grow and expand and be the magnanimous hearts of Helios and Vesta and the God and Goddess Meru and the Messengers Lanello and Mother. Therefore let this descent and deceleration of the fire of the sun come unto you, always quickening that heart to expand a little bit more.
Therefore clear the arteries of the heart! Clear the veins and the capillaries! Clear your hearts, beloved, of all hardness. Let the sunshine of Helios and Vesta pour through you now for the mightiest healing of the rainbow rays of our Causal Bodies and the secret rays of the Dhyani Buddhas, who live in the heart of the sun! Amen.

You know of all those things that have been predicted and of all those dark manifestations supposedly coming upon the earth and so many centers of conflict. It is as though mankind had kicked over a giant anthill and now were trying to stomp out the ants, one by one fleeing, scurrying hither and yon. Here a crisis. There a crisis. And how can mankind cope when crisis reaches dizzying proportions? And mankind sink back in uselessness, hopelessness, and they cry out to the living God, “What can we do? What can we do? How long, O Lord? How long, O Lord? How long?”
Become a Magnet for the Release of Sun Energy
Now I come to tell you the mystery of the Sun and of the energy of the Sun. For, you see, only a minute increment of light from the heart center of your own solar system is required for the balancing action of the planet.
Do you know that, by comparison in your own world, that portion of the Sun’s energy which could be for the exaltation, the balancing and the bringing in of a golden age is microscopic? Think of that, precious hearts! Think of what a grain of spiritual light from the altars of your own God-center, your own atom, could do for Terra.
I say, then, hierarchy waits to release that light.
I shall make the call, but the call must be ratified by you. And therefore, I have been bidden to recommend to you, as the course that you may take by your free will, to give the invocation to Helios and Vesta—Helios and Vesta, Helios and Vesta, let the light flow! Let the light flow! Let the light flow!—and also the invocation of Lord Lanto, these two brief prayers, that you might become magnets for that Sun energy to be released.
I ask, then, that you secure a copy or make a copy of these invocations and that you make a solemn determination within your heart—with all the fire of your faith, of your purity and your holy innocence—to give those simple prayers, to be electrodes for the Sun, to ratify the call of an archangel, and then to watch how, through science, through culture, through the Mother, mankind one and all converge at the point of solar awareness.
Solar Awareness Results in Soul Freedom
What is solar awareness? Solar awareness is the soul’s awareness of self as the Sun of God.* Solar awareness is that consciousness that you put on and become as you merge with the true identity and the blueprint of your soul, that mother-of-pearl sphere of light.
To become aware of the Sun, to become aware of the essential light of the Sun—this is the requirement of the hour. In actuality the Sun is the soul of Helios and Vesta. And so you see what your soul can become—a flaming forcefield, a vortex of light nourishing billions of lifewaves.
See, then, that it is the soul that is the key in the Aquarian age through the flame of freedom locked in the heart of Saint Germain. It is soul freedom that is the result of solar awareness.
Becoming aware of the self as the Sun, you then have at your command the fire of freedom for infinite creativity and the boundless, limitless flow of love and energy for the bringing forth and the enshrining of the culture of the Divine Mother. This is the promise of the Aquarian age. This is your opportunity to be free of the drudgery of the industrial age, the age of mechanization, the age of crude forms of energy that rob the earth of its balance.
That age will pass, and the age of the Sun* will dawn. And that age of the Sun will be when the soul of every man, every woman and every child communes daily with the sun in the heart, in the center of the earth and in the being of Helios and Vesta.
*The Sun in “self as the Sun” and “age of the Sun” could also mean Son.
Salutation to the Sun
O mighty Presence of God, I AM, in and behind the Sun:
I welcome thy Light, which floods all the earth,
into my life, into my mind, into my spirit, into my soul.
Radiate and blaze forth thy Light!
Break the bonds of darkness and superstition!
Charge me with the great clearness
of thy white fire radiance!
I AM thy child, and each day I shall become
more of thy manifestation!
Father-Mother Light Mantra
Helios and Vesta!
Helios and Vesta!
Helios and Vesta!
Let the Light flow into my being!
Let the Light expand in the center of my heart!
Let the Light expand in the center of the earth
And let the earth be transformed into the New Day!
In the name of Almighty God
I stand forth to challenge the night,
To raise up the Light,
To focus the consciousness of Gautama Buddha!
And I AM the thousand-petaled lotus flame!
And I come to bear it in his name!
I stand in Life this hour
And I stand with the scepter of Christ Power
To challenge the darkness,
To bring forth the Light,
To ensoul from starry heights
The consciousness of angels,
Masters, Elohim, sun-centers
And of all of Life
That is the I AM Presence of each one!
I claim the Victory in God’s name.
I claim the Light of solar flame.
I claim the Light! I AM the Light!
I AM Victory! I AM Victory! I AM Victory!
For the Divine Mother and the Divine Manchild
And for the raising-up of the crown of Life
And the twelve starry focal points
That rejoice to see the salvation of our God
Right within my crown,
Right within the center of the Sun
Of Alpha—It is done!

The post When the Soul Becomes a Sun appeared first on The Summit Lighthouse.

Mankind know not how the balance scales of the Holy Spirit are now delicately balanced by the flames of the devotees of every faith and every calling, the sincere who are clear, whose auras are clear for the light to penetrate. These are they who are the electrodes of the Great White Brotherhood, of hierarchy. They stand upon every continent holding forth the light until their bodies receive so much light that the weight becomes a burden of light that can be felt tangibly.
The ascended masters are close to their chelas. And the parched earth soaks up the fire of the living Word almost before it is spoken by the chela. So the invocations and the calls go forth. Action is released, but there is counteraction; and the counteraction is the free will of mankind.
You have the right and the authority in God, in the name of the I AM Presence, to challenge the misuse of freewill when that misuse encroaches upon planetary life and interferes with the freedom of mankind to follow the path of initiation, to make their way back to the center of God. I say, then, do not sleep this night ere you have spoken these words:
“In the name of Jesus the Christ, in the name of Gautama the Buddha, I challenge all misguided use of free will and all misqualified energy that encroaches upon the freedom of the souls of Terra to choose the way of light, to choose the path of the ascension! I stand in God, I stand for God! I AM on earth as I AM in heaven! I AM a chela of the ascended masters! And I pray this prayer that mankind might have this night the light of vision and the enlightenment of the Buddha, the freedom flame of Saint Germain, and the protection of Archangel Michael for the victory, for the liberation of an entire lifewave. Let it be done in the name of the Father, the Mother, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. All this I AM.”
Now you may not have memorized those words; and if you have not, the simple prayer of the heart, the intent of the heart to intercede on behalf of mankind, will do. But speak the prayer with the authority of the I AM Presence! Speak it loud and clear! Let the fiat go forth! And let it resound across the heavens and across the earth that a noble generation of lightbearers has arisen in this age to proclaim the way of light, the way of the Buddha, the way of hierarchy, the way of freedom with honor.
So let cosmic councils hear your call and your plea! Let them know that there are some here below whose hearts, like candles, glow with fervor and a fire and a compulsion to rise, to rise higher and higher into light, into God, into the center of the flaming yod.
The post Intercede on Behalf of Mankind appeared first on The Summit Lighthouse.

The winnowing of the soul may present elements of uncomfortability to the aspirant, but the rewards exceed by such a weight of glory all slight inconveniences and delays that men should prepare for a resurrection from dead works as a mother anticipates with joy an incoming child. The effect of unconscious moods must be studied. The mind in a groove or a rut may adopt itself to a mode of complacency, thus ignoring the need to change the mind.
The pull from the Great Magnet, the pull of the ascension, which commences the moment the descent is complete, ought to be consciously implemented by right thought and action so that individual life experiences may be woven into the fabric of the ascending current.
Thus, orientation is completely divine, and the overconcern for the ego and its future is minimized. When this action of cutting the soul loose from the bonds of earth is complete, even the earthly pattern will reflect a greater manifestation of peace.
Struggle is always misfortune when its end is downward. But struggle, itself, if the sense of struggle be shed, will produce the fruit of striving in manifestation for all who will apply themselves diligently to spiritual ends as they have to material gains. Men are often caught in the downdraft of another’s descent, and the palpitations of their vacillations at this moment distress not only the near ones, who love them, but also do they scratch the fine grains of the mind to their own discomfort.
Overconcerns Often Prevent Us from Taking the Action Which Frees Us
The dark ones continally seek to involve mankind in overconcern for externalities—political, personal, social, private—and in preconceived notions about the future of man or the future itself. These overconcerns often prevent man from taking the precise action which would free him from entanglements. Yet, the dark ones weave their net most skillfully, and their snares have caught many unawares. But if the world be full of darkness, there is more light in the universe than all of the darkness of the world multiplied by the nothingness that it is. Those who, as insects, live out a cycle that in the cosmos is of less concern than a katydid, will find that all of their seemingly great ideas come to naught.
Purity of motive will assist the brothers in bringing in the golden age. All that which serves the needs of cosmos is great. All that which serves selfish desires of individual segments of society can be the approach of darkness and despair. What, then, shall a man do to be saved? Commitment to the pristine ideas of God is a right step, and when love develops sufficiently to cognize the allness of God as of greater purpose than the turbulence of men and the spasms of self-seeking, the blessedness of freedom will come.

How is it that man fails to recognize that he was originally created in the image and likeness of God, that he was originally endowed with virtue and purity of purpose? Now, simply because the individual has misconstrued purpose and lived according to the dictum of the carnal mind, does not in itself preclude the possibility of the divine existence.
We are talking about two distinct phases of man’s existence: the eternal, or infinite phase, and the finite phase. The infinite phase has unlimited possibilities for soul expansion. But the finite phase also affords a certain freedom of expression. It manifests a God seekingness and a human seekingness. Out of this duality man must make his choices.
By understanding that there is a supreme purpose and that that purpose can be known and served, man is better able to understand the design of the universe. He is more endowed with the capacity to utilize the power of his vision, of his hearing, and of the spiritual senses to precipitate higher causes.
Nevertheless, through what has been called free will man can manifest any human quality he desires and lead a wholly selfish existence. Such an existence is bound to enervate the soul because of the very laws which separate the human consciousness from the divine. The moment an individual begins to serve himself, to determine that all that he does will be subject to the functions of the human ego, whether his own or another’s, without recognizing the needs of the Christ in every man and the purposes of the divine plan to be fulfilled, his creative endowment cannot help but be bound by the return of his own misqualified energy.
The Secret Key to the Fulfillment of Individual Purpose
The secret key to the fulfillment of individual purpose in God is to be found in the invocation of cosmic grace, in the invocation of faith in what has been called the invisible world. This world need not remain invisible. It has been called invisible because the senses have become inverted to gaze only upon the imperfection of the physical planes. Man has not recognized the perfection of the spiritual spheres. He has not recognized the perfection of his own God Presence. In fact, during centuries of embodiments he has not even known of the existence of that Presence.
Now it is up to us, who have been endowed with an understanding of the law of the I AM, individualized in the Presence of every child of God, to unveil the higher purpose. From time immemorial the blind who have led the blind have succeeded in promoting forms of religion based on superstition that have assuaged human needs without actually supplying man with the basic laws of his own being that would lead to his freedom and self-mastery.
But in the Chart of the Presence revealed by the Brotherhood of Light, the manifestations of the God Self (the Higher Self), the Holy Christ Self, and the human or lower self are perceived as three who agree in one. Through meditation upon this trinity man recognizes, at last, that the human monad has the capacity, being at the opposite pole from the Divine Self, to obtain grace from the equipoise of the Christ, the Universal Mediator, and thus to manifest for all time, point by point, the magnificent facets of the law, ‘as above so below’.
If man manifests below, he also manifests above. If he manifests above, he also manifests below. Therefore, he should understand that the physical self is the potter’s mold into which a tremendous outpouring of divine grace continuously flows. Thus the lower self is sent forth into the time span, into the human vector, to pose an opportunity for the Spirit to manifest and to complete the destiny of the individual lifestream.
