Closing Experiences and Our journey to Arabia
Work here is finished for the present," said Saint Germain as
the singing came to a close. "Let us now go to the Great Chamber
and dine." We had just become seated at the table when Daphne
appeared at the great organ and Arion stood beside Her with a
most wonderful violin.
They began to play, and a soft globe of Iridescent Light formed
near the ceiling, out of which came a most Glorious Tenor Voice
singing, "In the Name of Christ We Reign," whose melody and
lyrics were tremendously inspiring. Saint Germain felt the
question in our minds as to who the Singer was, and in answer to
our thoughts, replied, "You shall one day see this Cosmic Singer
face to face."
Daphne greeted the children rapturously and asked the quartet to
sing to the accompaniment of the organ and violin. We enjoyed a
glorious hour after the music by renewing our acquaintance with
those present, some of whom we were to meet again in the Far
It was nearly daybreak by the time the other Guests had gone and
we five were alone with Saint Germain. "Retire now," He said,
"and get your needed rest so you may return home tomorrow
afternoon." The next day the bell awakened us at eleven o'clock,
for we were to meet with our Be¬loved Master in the Great
Chamber. As we came near we noticed the great doors were already
open and the interior was lighted as brilliantly as the noonday
Sun. We had never experienced this effect of Interior Sunlight
"Why are you still astonished at these things?" asked Saint
Germain, aware of surprise. "You know every conceivable thing
can be accomplished in the Ascended State of Consciousness.
These things are always possible and are produced with absolute
certainty and perfect ease. I know you are not yet accustomed to
what seems unusual, but to the Master Christ, the 'I AM
Presence' within you, there cannot be anything unusual. Try to
realize this fully, so you too can live in the Ascended Master
Consciousness and come into the Knowledge and the use of this
same Transcendent Freedom. Now let us be seated." Immediately a
most delicious luncheon appeared before us, and while we ate,
Saint Germain gave Directions for the journey to the Far East.
"I would suggest," He remarked, "that you travel as lightly as
possible. Follow your Inner impulse
always, for you will be perfectly directed at all times. You are
surely aware by now that clothing or anything else you may
require is always available. You need not be encumbered
unnecessarily with luggage on this journey. I will meet with you
in the Tower Room on the tenth of August at eight o'clock in the
evening, when the date of your departure will be decided." Saint
Germain went with us to the auto, and after bidding us a loving
good-by, returned to the Retreat. We entered the car and drove
back to the ranch. The next two weeks were busy ones indeed as
we completed arrangements for our journey to the East. Upon Rex
devolved the duty of giving some explanation to the foreman
about Daniel Rayborn's continued absence.
"My father," he explained to him one morning, "has been called
to the Far East, where he will remain indefinitely. I will be in
charge of things here, although Nada and I will be traveling
abroad for about two years. Can we depend upon you to look after
the ranch during our absences?"
"I will do the best to take care of everything as you desire,"
he replied. "My assistant is quite dependable and capable of
taking charge, should anything happen to me."
Time passed on wings, and the tenth arrived filled with joyous
anticipation of our evening with Saint Germain. Until one has
had some such experience as was our privilege of association
with Him, it is impossible to convey the great happiness we felt
in the contemplation of still greater enlightenment. Our recent
Instruction during the Ascension of Daniel Rayborn and my
contact with the white-haired, elderly gentleman who sought so
long for the man with the Crystal Cup were a tremendous
encouragement and sufficient inducement for us to reach to the
Light with all the intensity of our Beings-to make the Ascension
At eight o'clock as we approached the Tower Room, the door
opened, and Saint German stood before us with extended arms,
Radiant and Resplendent. We exchanged loving greetings, took our
places, and He conveyed the Love and Blessings from the Mother
and Father of Rex and Nada.
"The time of your departure," He began, "is set for the
twentieth of August. I think it would be well if Rex, Bob, and
this Brother," nodding to me, "make one more trip to the mine
before leaving for the East in order to give strength and
encouragement to the Livingstons. I had not intended this when
you left the mine, but I think it the part of wisdom to see them
once more. Gaylord will meet you in Paris near the end of
October as soon as he finishes his work in South America.
"Now I have something else to tell you. The outer entrance to
the Cave of Symbols has been closed, and unless one had been
there, it would not be possible to locate it again.
Certain individuals did discover it and were planning to take a
research party there. It has been necessary to prevent that. You
see, Beloved Ones, We have all Power and limitless means within
Our Control by which to guard and protect whatever needs Our
Protection. I will give you certain Instructions for your
immediate use, and then I must leave to meet with the South
American branch of the Great White Brotherhood." After
indicating what was needed, He raised His hand in Blessing, and
with a Radiant Smile, was gone.
Bob's enthusiasm kept pace with his advancement. It was one of
the most wonderful things I have ever experienced to observe how
his intense longing for the Full Ascension focused his attention
upon the "Light" with uninterrupted joy and determination. Nada
and Pearl were expressing the Great Wisdom of the "Mighty I AM
Presence" as the Expansion of the Light increased within them.
It was most apparent in their eyes.
We drove to the mine on the twelfth and arrived there at six in
the evening. All were surprised, except Zara, who said she knew
we would visit them again before leaving for abroad.
We left early the next morning and returned to the ranch,
knowing our visit would be a sustaining strength to the
Livingstons. I shall never forget our last night in that
wonderful ranch home where so much happiness had come to all of
us and where events of such paramount importance had occurred
that affected the Life of each one so vitally. I felt a strong
impulse to go to the Tower Room for a farewell meditation. It
grew so strong that I asked the rest to join me. As we
approached the door, it opened to admit us, and within there was
the same soft, Beautiful Radiance that hallowed it with a Sacred
Presence-a Peace unspeakable. The door closed behind us, and
involuntarily I dropped to my knees in the greatest praise and
gratitude I had ever known.
Suddenly my feeling found expression and the Words poured forth
from my "I AM Presence" giving voice to the deepest Outpourings
of my soul in phrases far beyond my outer ability. As I
finished, Bob uttered a prayer of such beauty that it thrilled
everyone. The others felt the same impulse and expressed their
feelings from the depths of their Hearts. Surely that Outpouring
of our Love and Gratitude must have reached into the very Heart
Center of Creation, it was so intense and sincere. As we
finished, the Light in the room became perfectly Dazzling.
Suddenly, a Strong, Masterful Voice spoke from the ethers,
"All is well. In following your prompting to give expression to
that Inner feeling of Praise, you have contacted great
Heights-as well as Great Ascended Beings. This will bring you
Blessings untold. The Peace of the Cosmic
Christ enfolds you and carries you forth on Wings of Light
until you have reached Eternal Perfection."
Slowly the Light diminished until only a soft Radiance remained.
We silently left the room, knowing we were under the Loving,
Watchful Care of Mighty Powers of Light of which as yet we had
very little conception. A deep, unspeakable Radiation of Love
and Heavenly Joy went from each one to the others, and we
retired to our rooms.
We left by train early the next morning and arrived in New York
a few days before we sailed. While enjoying many things of
interest there, we felt a tremendous Inner appreciation for the
Statue of Liberty.
"What a wonderful symbol that is," said Nada, "and how few ever
stop to realize what it means. It is really a Focus of Spiritual
Power guarding the shores of America. The Torch held high
represents the Light of the 'Mighty I AM Presence' -which
reveals the way and sends Its Rays of Love and Peace unto all
mankind. The majesty and power of the Figure itself is a
marvelous expression of the Great Presence which carries the
Light, and not only guards and sustains America, but all of
mankind who truly seek the Light.
"It is as though the Spirit of America held the Light high in
silent greeting to the Figure of the Christ that stands high on
the towering Andes in South America. Little is known of
the Mighty Power that caused the Statue of Liberty to be placed
where it is, and why the Figure of Jesus occupies its high
pinnacle in the southern hemisphere. These are not accidents or
the results of blind chance, for there is no such thing anywhere
in the Universe. What seems so to the intellect is but the lack
of understanding of the Law of the Universe. You may be sure
that these Figures placed at these particular points give
indication of the service which both continents will give to the
rest of the world!"
At four o'clock in the afternoon of the twenty-eighth, we
boarded the S. S. Majestic-truly a floating palace. The tugboat
towed her out towards the open sea, and as she began to plow her
way through the mighty deep, we stood watching our Goddess of
Liberty fade from view. We went down to the dining room at the
first call for dinner, where we had reserved a table for six,
expecting of course that our party would be alone. We had just
finished ordering when the steward brought a Beautiful Young
Lady to our table. As I looked up, imagine my astonishment when
before us stood the Pupil of the Head of the Council in
France-at whose home we had spent a week before returning to
America with the Livingstons. It was She whom I had first
contacted as the "Veiled Sister," and who was Gaylord's Twin
Ray. She greeted me cordially, and as I turned to
present the others,
said: "You may call me Leto."
After greeting Her, they expressed their great joy and delight
for Her Presence.
"I have come," She explained, "to take you to our home in Paris,
which my Master wishes you to make your home while abroad. It
will make Him very happy to extend His hospitality to you all."
We joyously accepted His Invitation, knowing it to be part of
the Divine Plan Saint Germain had arranged for us. To add to our
happiness, we found Her suite next to that of Nada and Pearl.
When opportunity offered, I explained to the others that this
little Lady, who looked not more than seven¬teen, had used Her
present body over three hundred years. I almost strained the
credulity of my friends in spite of all Saint Germain had said
and done, that they might become accustomed to the Great Truth
and Reality of the Ascended Masters and Their Work.
The first evening we sat on deck completely at one with the
great peace of the deep, for it was calm as a mirror, silvered
by the beauty of a full moon. The next evening we spent in our
suite listening to the Instruction given by Leto. She explained
how to lay the body down, leaving it consciously and at will. It
was the simplicity and clearness of Her Explanation that made
all comprehend everything so clearly and realize something of
the possibilities of the attainment before us.
"This Training I am giving you," She said, "is most efficient,
and I will show you proof of it tomorrow evening." In Leto's
Radiation everything seemed simple, clear, and easy of
accomplishment; for all imperfection or human creation was
instantly consumed on entering Her Presence. Our joy and
gratitude were very great when we heard that She was to instruct
us during the entire journey. Again we marveled at the way all
was prepared ahead for us by the "Mighty I AM Presence" working
through the Glorious Ascended Masters. This is Their Activity
for and to the student when he enters sufficiently into the
Light-the Great Ascending Stream of Life-where his Eternal
Freedom always exists.
As each of us said good-night to Leto, it seemed as though a
Gossamer Garment of Light enfolded us, and the fragrance of
heather which had filled the room all evening clung to us while
we retired. We met at breakfast and the Radiance was even
greater than the night before. During the course of our
conversation, I asked Her why we had been conscious of the
fragrance of heather during Her Instruction.
"In the eleventh century," She explained, "I lived in Scotland,
and during an experience of that Life, the memory of heather
became very dear. Ever since then, at most unexpected moments,
the fragrance of heather
radiates very strongly-so much so that
many times it is noticed by those about
I observed that Leto wore a simple white garment, yet it gave
the effect of having a glint of many colors shining through. She
answered my thought about it immediately by saying: "This
garment I am wearing is a Seamless One, not made with hands, but
precipitated direct from Pure Light Substance-hence, the glint
and Radiance you see. It will never soil nor show wear. It will
not be long until each of you will be wearing the same kind of
Garment. In the fully awakened, or what you call the Ascended
Master Consciousness, we never encumber ourselves with luggage
of any kind, for in the ethers all about us is the Pure
Substance from which we form everything as we desire to use it.
"All we need to do is to bring it into form through holding the
conscious attention upon our mental picture, or visualized form.
This creates a focus for the concentration and condensation of
the Electronic Light in the ether which fills all space
everywhere. Our feeling, united with the mental picture, sets up
a drawing activity-a magnetic pull-upon the Pure Electronic
Substance. With this feeling there must enter a certain
knowledge of how to raise or lower the vibratory rate in the
aura around the electron; for the vibratory rate of the aura
determines the quality
and material of the precipitated
"When I use the term electron, I mean an Eternally Pure Heart
Center of Immortal Fire-a Perfect Balance of Light, Substance
and Intelligence around which is an aura of lesser Light that
the scientific world calls a force field. The electron is
forever changelessly Perfect, but the force field, or aura
around it, is subject to expansion and contraction; and this is
the determining factor in bringing substance into form from the
invisible into the visible.
"Because of the inherent intelligence within the electron, it
becomes an obedient servant and is subject to the manipulation
of the individual who acknowledges his Source of Life by his
awareness of the 'Mighty I AM Presence' within himself. From
this Height of Consciousness, such an individual, by a direct
command to the Intelligence within the electron, can release a
wave of its Fire to flow out, and cause the force field to
expand or contract at his will.
"This is the raising or lowering of the vibratory rate and is
the activity that causes the force field to register, or become
the quality of the material which he brings into physical form.
For illustration, iron has a much lower vibratory rate than
Gold, and if one be precipitating Gold, the force field around
the electron would naturally be much larger in extent, and hence
contain more of the Immortal
Fire than would that of iron.
"In bringing about this sort of manifestation, the vision and
feeling must be held steady to produce quick results. It is the
work of the student to master himself and maintain the Conscious
Control and direction of the energy within his own mind and
body. Then he is able to govern the flow of its power-through
the channels of sight and feeling -to a definite objective, and
hold it there until the receptacle, which is his mental picture,
is filled full of the Living, Luminous Substance from the
Universal Fire of Life.
"This Instruction is for your use, and you must apply it if you
wish to attain any degree of Mastery; for only by use of the
knowledge we already have can we utilize that which is still
greater. No one can ever attain any degree of Mastery except
through the operation of the Great Inner Law of the 'I AM.'
"The greatest of all fundamentals is to remember -forever-that
from the lowest to the Highest Being in the Universe, the only
Presence and Power which can move or do anything construc¬tive
is that Conscious Intelligence which acknowledges its own Being
and Manifestation by decreeing 'I AM,' followed by whatever
quality that Being desires to bring into outer existence. It is
the Word of God through which all Creation takes place, and
without It, Creation does not take place. Remember, there is
only One Power that can move through Creation, and that is the
Mighty Electronic Light existing everywhere and interpenetrating
"The individual who can say 'I AM,' by that Acknowledgment of
his own existence, must accept the responsibility of his own
Decrees. The Great Creative Principle is everywhere present, the
same as the use of the multiplication table, but it takes the
individual's Acknowledgment of his 'I AM Presence' to set it
into action and fulfill his plan of Life-which is Perfection, or
"The personality, or outer activity of the individual, is but
one focus through which 'The Magic Presence' of the 'I AM' acts.
If the energy of the 'Mighty I AM' is qualified by thoughts and
feelings that consider only the appetites of the flesh body, the
Perfect Balance of the individual's vehicle is not maintained
and is like a wheel off center; hence imperfection and discord
is expressed. But if the individual considers the Perfect
Balance and makes his Decree include the whole instead of only a
part of his universe, he will only follow his Acknowledgment of
the 'I AM Presence' and the release of Its Power by Decrees that
maintain the Perfect Balance. Any decree of Life that accepts
less than Limitless Perfection is not the Plan of God and will
continue to destroy the forms in which it is focused until the
Decree of Full Perfection is expressed. When the student
understands this, he will keep joyously radiant and firmly
conscious of only his 'Mighty I AM Presence,' never allowing his
spoken word to go forth decreeing anything less than the
Perfection of Life.
"From Our Height of Consciousness, after having watched
mankind for centuries in the struggle through self-created
misery and discord, it is amazing how humanity refuses to
understand why the minds and bodies of the race continue to grow
old, decay and disintegrate, when some of the most materialistic
scientists acknowledge that the cell of which the physical
bodies are made up is eternally Immortal. The cell contains
within it the power to eternally renew and sustain itself
because there is Perfect Balance in all its parts. If left to
its own activity and sphere, it will continue to maintain that
Perfection. The wonder to Us is that the race is content to go
through the experience of death, while all the time clinging to
youth, beauty and Life, and yet refusing to keep harmonious
enough to let it be maintained. The student who will stand at
one with his 'I AM Presence,' accepting and decreeing only Its
Perfection and Great Inner Power, will release Its Flow through
the outer activity of mind and body and produce whatsoever he
"To be able to come and go from the body at will is a necessary
step in the student's Freedom that will lead to many greater
Attainments. A part of my Service to humanity is in teaching
individuals how to do this-a work for which I have a deep Love
and natural ability. I am able to convey this idea to others so
they too are able to go forth and comprehend Life in a greater
"Within two months you will be able to come and go from your
bodies consciously as easily as you now come and go from your
home. At first I will assist you until you understand and fix
the operation in your consciousness; then you will be able to
accomplish what you desire entirely by your own effort. We
rarely find several individuals ready for this Instruction at
the same time, but because you four are two sets of Twin Rays
working together, is this unusual condition explained.
"Let us enjoy the sea breeze, the beauty of the night, and the
perfect weather which we shall have while crossing; for there
are never storms or disturbances where there is a Focus of the
Great White Brotherhood. Each Member is a Definite Focus. I have
work to do now at a distance, so must leave you until four this
afternoon when I will return and be with you at dinner."
I have always enjoyed travel at sea, but this voyage was more
than enjoyable, for our association and work with Leto kept us
constantly aware of the God Presence. Later in the day I had
occasion to chat for a few minutes with the Captain, and he said
during his entire fifteen
years on the sea
he had never had a more marvelous voyage. I could
have told him why, but it was the part of wisdom to remain
As we were taking our places at the table for dinner, Leto
returned and joined us, saying: "I have joyous information!
Splendid things have just been accomplished for the Blessing of
humanity. I tell you this much that you may rejoice with me, but
later you shall know the full details of it, probably when we
arrive in Arabia. It pleases me that you have been able to keep
your consciousness so well focused upon 'The Magic Presence' of
the 'I AM.' Tonight before our work begins, I want you to enjoy
the sunset with me; for you shall not have another such
opportunity for fifty years due to certain Cosmic Activities
which as yet you do not understand."
Leto had chairs placed on the top deck where we would be
undisturbed. When we were all comfortably seated, She continued:
"You remember that Beloved Saint Germain said to you, the Sun of
this system is to the whole system what the Heart is to the
human body, Its Currents of Energy being the blood stream of
this system of worlds; the ether belt around this Earth, being
the lungs through which the currents of energy, constantly
pouring forth, are ever purifying the body of the Earth. The Sun
is also the head, or Father of this system, through which this
Mighty Energy is constantly generated by the Mighty Intelligence
focused there-from Glorious Ascended Beings who have charge of
and govern that Activity.
"The Sun is not hot as scientists think. It is as cool and a
thousand times more refreshing than the gentle zephyrs of the
most delightful summer evening. It is only as the Sun's Currents
of Energy pass through the ether belt of the Earth that they
become heat. The Sun is the electronic pole, and the Earth is
the magnetic pole. The ether belt is the element through which
the currents are diversified.
"The Christ Mind is embodied in Great Beings upon the Sun
similar to the way It is here on Earth. Always keep this in
mind: God sent forth His Rays individualizing Himself in order
to govern, regulate and direct His Activity through
Self-conscious Beings. That is why we, as the Sons of God, are
given Free Will-choice.
"By recognizing and accepting fully this Mighty God Power, Love,
and Intelligence anchored in us, we become able to express more
and more of the Full Power of God in conscious action. Only the
most advanced students realize there are Mighty Beings as much
beyond the Lord of the Earth as the Lord of the Earth is beyond
the ordinary mortal.
"Now, each of you, withdraw the consciousness from your body and
place it fully upon the Sun. Partly close your eyes and then
wait." We sat very still for almost twenty minutes and then went
forth as a group, Leto leading the way. She became Dazzling and
Radiant. Deeper and deeper we entered into the Intense Light of
that Great Focus of Cosmic Light, and presently became aware
that we were approaching the Globe Itself. The Radiance which It
emitted gave one a feeling of great exaltation with a glowing
sensation of Peace and Power. The nearer Leto drew, the brighter
became Her Radiance.
We then approached a magnificent City called the "City of the
Sun." Within it were wonderful, Perfected Beings-like ourselves,
except Their Bodies were slightly larger than those of our
humanity-but Their Radiance and Beauty were transcendent beyond
words. Presently we found ourselves receding. The Glorious City
began to fade from view, the Indescribable Light grew less, and
then we heard Leto speaking, commanding us to return with Her.
With a sudden shock, we were conscious again of our physical
"A grand success," She said smilingly. "I have brought this
about that each may bear witness to the others of what you have
seen, for in this is tremendous strength. The concept which
mankind has that the Sun is a focus of great heat is absurd and
infantile. The Truth is that the tremendous Rays of Energy which
it sends forth to its system of planets are not heat rays at
all, but Rays of Electronic Energy which only become heat as
they contact and penetrate the atmosphere of the Earth. The
atmosphere surrounding our planet is a force field produced by
the rays of magnetic force sent forth from the center of this
planet, and when the Rays of Electronic Energy from the Sun
touch these, we have the phenomena in our atmosphere that we
call heat and Light from the Sun."
We enjoyed the twilight on deck until seven-thirty and then went
to Leto's stateroom. We took our places in five reclining chairs
which She had provided for our use-in which the body was
perfectly poised and at ease. Then Leto began Her Instruction.
"Focus your attention on the Heart for a moment," She explained.
"Then raise it to the top of the head. Keep it there without
change and let the following be your only thought: 'Mighty I AM
Presence which I AM,' now take charge in Full Mastery of this
body. See that I go and come from it consciously and at will.
Never again can it bind me or limit my Freedom. "
It could not have been more than three minutes until we stood
before our bodies, free-consciously free-in bodies of substance,
but finer than that of the physical body. In these we were more
clearly alert and free than we had ever been in the physical.
"Come with me," said Leto, and instantly we passed out of the
room over placid waters and went direct to Her home in Paris. We
saw and greeted Her Master. Then we continued our journey to the
Home of the Brotherhood in Arabia which we visited later. When
we returned near our bodies, She spoke again: "Wait-we are going
to do this consciously," She directed. She went to each body as
it lay in the chair and touched the forehead. Immediately the
body stood up, yet looked as if asleep. Then She gave the
necessary direction, which I may not give here, and we were
again fully conscious in our bodies. The whole experience was
different from anything we had ever lived through before, and it
left us with a certain indescribable confidence that we could do
it again. We tried to thank Her, but She raised Her hand for
"Love serves, because it is the nature of Love to give, and it
is not concerned with nor does it expect acknowledgment of its
Gifts. However, your gratitude is beautiful and well known to
me. Just try to become the Love that does not wish to possess,
for then Love is truly Divine."
The following days were filled with joy, beauty, repose and
peace as we watched he sunlit waters by day, and at night the
wonderful moonlight, until one's very being breathed praise and
gratitude for the happiness of just being alive.
The boat docked at Cherbourg, and following Leto as She led the
way, we went to the waiting autos and were driven to Paris,
Pearl and Nada riding in Her car, and Bob, Rex, and I in the
second one. When we arrived at Her home in Paris, Her Master
greeted us in His Gracious, Courtly Manner: "It is Our Great
joy," He said, "to have you make this your home as long as you
wish, and We want you to feel just as free to come and go as if
you were in your own home in America."
The next few days we spent with these Blessed Masters learning
many wonderful things and receiving some insight into the
Marvelous Work of the Great White Brotherhood. Its Stupendous
Power, Inner Working and Accomplishment simply stagger the
intellect of one unaccustomed to this kind of Knowledge.
We were placed under definite training, and Leto, after
finishing our Instruction for the day, showed us the places of
interest in the afternoon. Not a moment was wasted, as She said
we were to leave soon for Arabia and that She expected the call
within a week.
While visiting the Louvre, Leto showed us a painting by a young
artist who had painted a picture called "The Union of Two
Souls." It was intended to portray the Union of the Twin Rays
and was a marvelous conception, a wonderful work of art.
"We are watching," She said, "for an opportunity to see if this
artist can be awakened to the Inner Wisdom after having received
such an interpretation of his idea. In the midst of his work he
unknowingly shut the door to the inspiration he had received at
the beginning, and My Master, seeing the need, gave the
necessary Assistance which reestablished his contact with his
Divine Inspiration and enabled him to complete the picture. It
was un¬known, of course, to him, but the marvelous painting you
see before you was the result.
"Often an artist, musician, writer, inventor, and many other
individuals doing creative work are given such Assistance from
the Ascended Masters -of which those receiving the Help know
nothing. This sort of Activity is one way in which We work
We attended one Meeting of the Great White Brotherhood to which
Members came from all over the world, among them being Gaylord's
Friend whom I had met when Gaylord was abducted to Paris. It was
a never-ending source of joy to know of the important Work being
accomplished by the Members of the Great White Brotherhood,
entirely unknown to the outer world. Many sincere people who
wish to live the constructive way of Life are Members of this
Brotherhood at the Inner Levels long before they become aware of
it in the outer senses.
The time arrived for our departure, and Leto was to conduct us
to the East. We said good-by to Her Blessed Master and drove to
Marseilles by car. We went direct
to the steamship
office of the Messageries Maritimes Line. As
we entered, a tall, fine-looking man in Arabian dress came out
and bowed before Leto.
"Your Highness," he said, "reservations are on the steamship
Mariette Pache. This envelope contains the necessary papers.
Your accommodations at the usual place are in readiness. Can I
be of further service?"
He touched his Heart and forehead, and Leto, returning the
Salutation, gave him a Sign which we recognized as belonging to
the Great White Brotherhood. We knew by that he was one of the
Brothers. We returned to the auto and were taken to what proved
to be a private old hostelry-quaint, but spotlessly clean, and
the accommodation good. Leto told the driver to call for us at
nine the next morning, and I must confess, I was greatly
interested to know why She was addressed as "Your Highness."
Promptly at nine we entered the autos and were driven to the
pier, Leto telling the drivers to return to Paris. As we boarded
the ship, our entire party was shown great deference, and our
accommodations were truly palatial.
We had a delightful trip on the deep blue waters of the
Mediterranean and finally docked at Alexandria. Leto again led
the way to waiting autos, and after driving for about twenty
minutes, we entered a walled enclosure and stopped before a
beautiful home built in the Moorish type of architecture. A
youth in Arabian dress admitted us and led the way to a circular
room. A tall, beautiful woman who looked not more than twenty,
yet whose eyes held deep Wisdom, came forward and greeted us
graciously. Leto presented Her to us as Electra.
"Beloved Sisters and Brothers," She said, "I have been expecting
you, and you are most welcome. Please accept my humble
hospitality, now and at any time that you are in Alexandria. You
will honor me to make this your home. Your Beloved Master was
here yesterday and asked that you remain for two days. At the
end of that time a boat will take you to a place on the coast of
Arabia, from which you will drive to your destination." She then
touched a set of exquisite chimes. The youth returned and showed
us to our separate suites.
During our conversation at dinner we learned something of
Electra's family. Her father was an Englishman, and Her mother
was a French woman. Someone asked how long it had been since
they had passed on, and She replied:
"One hundred and twenty-five years ago. You see," She continued,
"I am not as far advanced as your wonderful Escort, but I have
attained enough dominion to eliminate time and space."
"Electra," said Leto, "is far advanced and is doing beautiful
work, as you will see later. While we are in Alexandria you
shall see the places of interest, and we shall spend the next
two days enjoying ourselves."
We were very much interested the next morning in sight-seeing.
When we stopped at a certain jeweler's stall, admiring the
beautiful jewels and the exquisite workmanship of their
settings, the old jeweler made a deep bow, and in salutation
touched his Heart and head, asking to see Rex and Bob's rings.
He was very silent for a few moments, and then looking steadily
at them both, remarked:
"My Brothers, you have done me a great honor; only once before
have I ever seen such jewels. They are Condensed Light. They are
'Living Gems.' You are blest indeed." As we thanked him and
turned to go, he asked the Blessing of the Most High God upon
The second evening after visiting the old jeweler, we were
listening to Electra describing Her Experiences, when a sealed
envelope dropped out of the atmosphere directly at the feet of
Rex. He opened it anxiously and found a Message from our Beloved
"In the morning," it read, "a yacht belonging to one of the
Brothers will take you to a certain port from which you will
proceed by auto to your destination in Arabia. Your Mother and
Father send Greetings and Love to all." The next morning Electra
accompanied us to the yacht, a beautiful, graceful boat as trim
as a greyhound.
"I shall expect you on your return before you go to India," She
said as She bade us good-by. When we went aboard the yacht, we
had another surprise, for its owner was none other than
Gaylord's Friend -the Brother who met me at the boat when I
arrived in Cherbourg while Gaylord was being held captive.
Our entire journey was well prepared at every point with much
comfort and convenience. One can scarcely realize the joy of
these activities unless he has experienced something of this
sort. As soon as we were well out at sea, our Host gave us His
"I have just received a letter," He said, "from Gaylord-who is
still in South America. He is completing certain work there and
asked to be remembered to everyone. He says he hopes to see you
before many more weeks have passed, and until then his Love is
ever enfolding you." We thanked our host for the message from
our friend-for whose welfare we felt deeply concerned.
Our trip through the Suez Canal was delightful, and there was so
much of divine tradition attached to the Red Sea that we
expected to feel a thrill in passing through it. We had
repeatedly experienced such wonderful things that we half
anticipated the waters to divide and the scenes of long ago to
appear in the ether. As we recalled the miracles of that time,
our Host instructed:
"Miracles," He explained, "are but the result of a Mighty,
Omnipresent Cosmic Law set into action-consciously-by one who
accepts his Divine Author¬ity and understands Its Use. The Laws
governing any kind of manifestation which the human mind
considers supernatural are as natural and unerring as the motion
of a planet. All activity, from the electron to the greatest
Suns in space, is under the control and exact operation of Law
set into opera¬tion by Self-conscious, Individualized
Intelligence. When an individual understands and applies the
Great Law governing manifestation in form, he can and does
produce exact results. So truthfully speaking, there are no
"Miracles are but the effect of the application of Law by an
individual to bring about a specific result. All may learn to do
this-if they desire it strongly enough and will discipline the
outer activity of thought and feeling."
We reached our port, and two autos were waiting to take us the
rest of the way. Our Host accompanied us to the Arabian Retreat
and gave directions for His yacht to remain until we returned.
We had dined before leaving the yacht, as it was late in the
afternoon when we reached port. Leto explained that we were to
travel during the night in order to be unobserved through this
part of the country. We traveled through many trange places and
arrived at our destination just before daybreak.
We came to a stop before the little hut that Gaylord had
described to us near the foot of a hill. How we were able to
reach it by auto instead of camels, we did not know; nor was it
our business to inquire at this time. We knew we were guests of
a Mighty Presence and Power, and our duty was to remain silent
until information was volunteered. Curiosity on the part of a
student is inexcusable in spiritual training and must be
completely eliminated from the consciousness before certain
understanding, power, and experiences are permitted to be given
him along the path to Mastery. Unless it is completely consumed
within the personality, it is a wide-open door through which the
sinister force can act at any moment and cut off the further
progress of the advancing student. Whenever it was necessary,
all that we needed to know was explained without our asking.
Dawn was just breaking as we reached the hut, and immediately a
Tall Man in an Indigo Cape came out to bid us welcome. He
greeted each one cordially and requested us to return to our
autos. Then had a cataclysm occurred, we could scarcely have
been more surprised; for directly in front of us the earth
opened, revealing a sort of jaw-like entrance made of metal,
large enough to admit our cars.
This led onto a well-paved road with a downward incline. The jaw
was controlled by powerful machinery, and when it closed after
us a few moments later, it was to all appearances simply the
floor of the Arabian Desert.
As our cars entered the roadway leading down, the surrounding
walls became flooded with that Soft White Light which we knew so
well and which the Ascended Masters always use for illuminating
tunnels, caves, and all subterranean passageways. We traveled
along slowly for about twenty minutes and then entered a
circular room nearly two hundred feet in diameter. In this place
all equipment was kept for the automobiles, and attendants
provided, ready to render any service required.
The Brother in the Indigo Cape alighted and led the way to what
proved to be an elevator. We entered, descended for about three
hundred seventy feet, and came to a stop, entering an enormous
chamber with huge columns, almost three hundred feet high.
These great columns were heavily covered with hieroglyphics,
inlaid in marvelously beautiful colors. We found later that it
had been the foyer to a large government building. Our guide led
us through this chamber to a great arched doorway that opened at
His Command, admitting us into another chamber that was
beautifully decorated. Its ceiling was arched and
very ornate, supported by a single colossal column in the
center. This second room must have been at least two hundred
feet each way. The Brother of the Indigo Cape broke the silence:
"This is one of our principal council chambers," He explained,
"which we often use as a banquet hall. Beloved Sisters and
Brothers, you who are not yet formally admitted Members of our
Order are the first students ever admitted to this very ancient
Retreat without having been fully accepted into the outer
activities of this branch of the Great White Brotherhood; but I
assure you, your credentials are quite sufficient." With these
words He threw back the cowl of His Cape, and our Blessed Master
Saint Germain stood before us. We were thrilled, and felt
immediately quite at home.
"You will now be shown to your quarters, and after having
refreshed yourselves and donned your Seamless Robes, come to me
here." A youth and maiden appeared and showed us the way to our
rooms. Later when we returned to the council hall, a number of
the Brothers had already arrived and were talking to Beloved
"In seven days," He explained, "an International Council of the
Great White Brotherhood is to be held in this Retreat. The
Greatest of our Members will be here, as this kind of Council is
only called every seven years. On this occasion you will be made
Members of the outer body as well as the 'Inner.' Please be
seated, for I wish to give you information concerning the city
you are now in.'' He then gave us another wonderful Discourse,
and it made us marvel at what a place of wonders this Earth
is-let alone the rest of the Universe.
"At one time," He explained, "this city was at the surface of
the Earth. Certain of the Ascended Masters knew a cataclysm was
threatening and sealed a portion of it for future use. In the
catastrophe that followed, it sank deep below the original level
and was filled in and covered over by the sand from the
surrounding land, which had become a desert.
"The tops of the highest buildings are in some places fully one
hundred and twenty-five feet be¬neath the surface. Air passages
have been kept open and always give perfect ventilation. Within
this subterranean city have been perfected some of the most
wonderful achievements in chemistry and invention the outer
world has been privileged to receive. Whenever this has
occurred, some worthy man or woman has been found through whom
the world has been privileged to receive these Blessings.
"There is here much of vital importance ready to be brought
forth for the use of humanity when it is the part of Wisdom in
the Judgment of the Ascended Masters to give it out. Again there
will be another great cataclysm that will rend the surface of
the Earth, removing from further self-created destruction those
human beings who have the ignorance and presumption to say there
is no God. Those who are so bound by their self-created darkness
that they destroy the very symbols on Earth of what is good,
true, uplifting and enlightening, must -because of the very
darkness of their own minds-be prevented from creating any
further discord upon this planet and from influencing others by
their own mistaken concepts of Life.
"Whatever and whoever denies God-the Source of all Life and
Light-can only exist as long as the energy which they have
already received can sustain them; because the moment an
individual, group, or nation denies the very Source of Life,
that instant the Inflowing Stream of Life Energy is cut off, and
it can only continue to function until the force which has
already been accumulated becomes exhausted. The collapse and
self-annihilation of these is inevitable.
"Denial of Life and Light cuts off the sustaining energy, while
Acknowledgment of Life and Light releases it and lets it flow
through the body and mind that makes the Acknowledgment.
"The Great Law governing all form, or the Law of Cause and
Effect, tolerates man's iniquity to man only so long. When that
iniquity is directed to the Godhead, or Source of Life,
retribution is swift and certain. There is an automatic
puri.fyi,ng and balancing process within all Life, and when any
outer activity opposes itself to the Cosmic Law of forward
motion and ever-expanding Perfection-which is always pressing
from within outward-then the hour arrives when all opposition is
swept aside and annihilated by the onward moving impulse within
Life Itself. When those ruling a nation turn from God,
destroying all that calls attention to the Light of Christ, it
means the end of that government and group is close at hand;
because it causes a certain Cosmic Activity to be released upon
the planet which sweeps them out of existence.
"The human intellect acquires many peculiar kinks in its
thinking, and one of the most disastrous of these is the
activity of human consciousness that refuses or forgets to love
and thank Life, the 'Mighty I AM Presence,' for the Blessings
Life is constantly bestowing upon mankind and this Earth.
"The average human being lives Life after Life without once
loving or thanking his own 'Mighty I AM Presence' for the energy
which flows ceaselessly through his mind and body; for the
substance he uses in his body and world; or for the hundreds of
good things by which he is constantly surrounded which he uses
and enjoys, and yet gives nothing of himself in return.
"Many people carry a feeling of personal grudge against Life,
blaming It for their suffering and failures, when even a very
small amount of gratitude and Love poured out to the 'I AM
Presence' within each human Heart would transmute every discord
into Peace and Love, releasing the Perfection of Life into the
outer activity of the individual.
"Human beings find plenty of time to love dogs, cats, food,
clothes, money, diamonds, people, and a thousand and one things;
but it is very rarely that an individual takes even five minutes
out of a lifetime to love his own Divinity-yet he is using every
second Its Life and Energy by which to enjoy those things. Even
those who think they love God give almost no Acknowledgment to
the 'Mighty I AM Presence' within themselves, and no gratitude
goes up to It for the good things that come to them in Life.
"It is not that we should not pour out Love to things in the
outer activity; but we should certainly love the Divinity Within
first-and more-than any outer thing or personality. It is this
very Life and Consciousness by which we exist.
"Happiness cannot exist except when Love is pouring out. This is
Life's Law. When people are loving something or somebody, they
are happy. Even a miser is happy when he is loving his Gold,
because he is pouring out a feeling of Love to the thing he
tries to hold. What he is really trying to hold is happiness;
but he does not realize that the feeling of happiness is not
contained in the Gold, but is in the pouring out of Love from
himself. In that outpouring he lets Life flow uninterruptedly
"However, having received all good we ever used from the 'Mighty
I AM Presence' which builds each physical body, the first and
greatest Outpouring of our Love belongs always to our own
Individualized Flame of God-the Mighty Consciousness of Life
within us which enables us to acknowledge our own existence and
Source of all Life when we say 'I AM.' In those Words is All of
God, and nothing in human experience is really important but All
of God. When the individual accepts, acknowledges, and feels All
of God, he is happy, he has all good, and then he lives in the
Father's Mansion. Is it possible for anything to be more
important or greater than All of God? Only with the
Understanding and Feeling of this can mankind break the chains
of self-created limitations.
"Now you must rest, and then it will be my privilege to escort
you through this underground city, where you will see the
Brothers at work. I make but one request: that no detail of this
Work be revealed without permission from the Highest Master in
He bade us good-night, and we went to our quarters. These had
been constructed similar to the Greek and Roman type of
architecture, yet they were far older. The room assigned to me
contained a built-in Roman bath, the most beautiful thing I have
ever seen of this kind. Everywhere the atmo¬sphere was laden
with the fragrance of flowers, usually roses.
In the morning we were awakened by soft music played on
instruments of a most unusual type, and the effect upon our
bodies can hardly be described, for it gave one the feeling of
ease and freedom-as if a pressure of some kind were being
released. The sensation continued to increase, and while we were
clearly conscious of some change going on within us, yet we did
not realize to what extent our Inner Bodies were being attuned.
The curious thing about the whole experience is that when we
compared notes with each other, all had been affected in a
As we entered the Council Chamber, Saint Germain and Gaylord's
Friend greeted us. Saint Germain asked us to be seated, and
breakfast was served immediately. The first thing that appeared
was most delicious fruit. Then came what He called Sun-cereal,
over which was a substance like honey and whipped cream. Several
other dishes were served, and we finished the meal with a
steaming hot drink that took the place of coffee, but was not
like anything physical I have ever tasted.
Even after our many experiences, it always seemed so marvelous
to me to have things appear at the Conscious Command of these
Blessed Ascended Masters. Everything came directly from out the
Universal Substance the instant They desired it: food, clothing,
gold, anything and everything They wanted. They are all the word
"Master" implies. It is the only description that does Them
justice. They are glorious and majestic-always.
As we arose from the table, I heard Gaylord's Friend address
Leto as "Your Highness," and again I wondered why that title was
used in a Retreat. She turned to me and explained most
"My brother, whom you have met, inherited the title of Prince
Rexford, and I that of Princess Louise. Mine has clung to me
through the years for no particular reason. That is why I am
often ad¬dressed as 'Your Highness.'
"Forgive my curiosity," I replied, as I realized how keenly
aware of my every thought and feeling these Ascended Masters
"Come," said Saint Germain, "We shall go first to the television
chamber." We followed Him and soon came to a great circular
chamber. In the center of the room stood an enormous reflector
surrounded by a maze of electrical apparatus, at one side of
which was a large dial.
"This room," said Saint Germain, "is insulated in a special way
which enables us to make observations of very great accuracy. By
means of this instrument, through focusing the dial upon any
given point on the surface of the Earth, we can see instantly
any place or activity occurring at any distance. Notice! I shall
direct it to New York."
He turned the dial, and we saw-as clearly as if we had been in
Manhattan-the Grand Central Station, Fifth Avenue, and the
Statue of Liberty. Then turning the dial to London, we were
shown Trafalgar Square, the Houses of Parliament, the British
Museum, the Bank of England, and the River Thames. He turned it
again and we saw Melbourne and Yokohama, and we were able to
observe everything as clearly as if physically present.
"This wonderful instrument," He continued, "has been in use in
this Retreat for more than a hundred years. Come now into the
adjoining room. It is the radio chamber. Notice the intense
stillness! The walls, floor and ceiling are covered with a
precipitated substance that makes it absolutely sound and
He stepped to the instrument that stood in the center of the
room and directed it to New York. We immediately heard the sound
of the traffic, and as we listened more closely, we could hear
clearly and distinctly the conversation of individuals passing
on the street. Distance made no difference.
"This instrument," He said, "will soon be in use everywhere. Now
let us go to the chemical laboratory where some of the Brothers
are at work upon many wonderful inventions. Here, ways have been
discovered to counteract destructive gases, chemicals, and
activities of various kinds that the sinister force and its
unfortunate pawns might try to use against humanity; for it is
positively known in certain quarters that feverish efforts are
constantly being made to produce various substances that are of
a very destructive kind. The Brothers in this Retreat work to
neutralize all such activity.
"When misguided members of mankind discover a more than
ordinarily destructive agent, the chemist making such
experiments always loses his body when his diabolical work
reaches a certain point, for the destructive quality he desires
to use upon the body of mankind reacts upon his own."
Next we visited the Cosmic Ray Chamber. "This room," explained
Saint Germain, "is lined with pure metallic Gold. The Brothers
of certain advancement who work here are taught how to
distinguish the difference between the various Rays and to
direct and use them for stupendous Good. The Great Ascended
Masters are constantly watching in the world for those students
whose attainments will permit them to take up this Work." When
Bob understood this phase of Their Activity, he became most
"I would love to serve in this manner!" he exclaimed.
"We shall see," said Saint Germain as He smiled knowingly.
"Among those who are working in this room, there are seven of
the Brothers and three of the Sisters who are just completing
their Training in the use of these Rays. At the coming Council
they will be allotted their field of service in using this
Activity for which Training in many lives has fitted them.
"Now we shall visit the Chamber of Art, where twenty of the
Brothers and ten of the Sisters are being trained in a new kind
of art which they will bring forth into the outer world. They
are being instructed concerning the secret of imperishable
colors and shown how to produce them. Within the next twenty
years this form of art will find its way into the Life of
humanity, and bring with it a tremendous uplift.
"From here we shall go to the Chamber of Music. It is a most
beautiful place I assure you, and the Perfection of the
instruments is truly remarkable." Saint Germain led the way, and
we entered with great anticipation.
"This is a new metal for band instruments," He continued,
showing us certain alloys, "which gives an unbelievably delicate
tone. Here are three new materials for making violins. As you
will see, one looks like mother of pearl, one like frosted
silver, and one like Roman gold. The musical instruments of the
New Age will be made of materials like
One of the Brothers played these instruments for us, and human
ears have never been blessed by more beautiful sounds. Each was
distinctly different, but all were so beautiful there seemed
hardly any choice between them.
In rooms adjoining the Chamber of Music, beautiful musical
compositions were being written and prepared so the Brothers
could project these magnificent harmonies into the consciousness
of musicians working in the outer world.
"Some of these Brothers," said Saint Germain, "will come into
the outer activity and work in the capacity of teachers, while
others will serve from the invisible side of Life.
"We are now entering the Chamber of State. Here training is
given in the higher forms of statecraft and national government.
Some forty of the Brothers are being trained, as you see, in the
right use of this Knowledge, and are also being shown how to
project it to others who are already in official positions-that
is, wherever the sincerity of the official will permit. Ten of
these wonderful Brothers will go forth in person and serve by
being elected to governmental positions in the usual way. Five
of them will go to the United States of America."
During our visit to these various rooms and the explanation of
the Work the Brothers were engaged in, we felt this the most
wonderful education of our lives. It was such a relief to know
that notwithstand¬ing all the distressing outward appearance of
the conditions in which humanity finds itself to day, the Power
of the "Mighty I AM" is doing everything possible to bring
enlightenment and relief to mankind. It lifted our Hearts and
hopes to the height of expectation for great good to all mankind
in the near future-at least for all who desire the constructive
Plan of Life.
We were shown secret chambers of riches untold, others of
records so old it seemed almost inconceivable. Some dated back
to the advent of man upon this planet. When we returned to the
Council Chamber, we found we had been gone eight hours. Not once
in all this amazing subterranean city did we find the least
particle of dust, dirt, or confusion of any kind. Everything was
in a most wonderful state-perfect and spotless. We marveled at
this, and Saint Germain again explained the Law concerning it.
"This Perfect Cleanliness is maintained by the conscious use of
the Great Cosmic Rays, and within the next one hundred years,
hundreds of house¬wives will be using the Violet Ray to keep
private homes in the same wonderful state. Oh, that humanity
might realize quickly what Glory, Freedom and Blessings stand
ready for their use at every instant when they hold to wonderful
Ideals unwaveringly, tenaciously rely upon the 'Mighty I AM
Presence,' and know It is the only real Power of Permanent
Suddenly we felt a tremendous vibration, and looking around, saw
five of the Ascended Masters had arrived from India-for the men
wore turbans. These were two Ladies and three Gentlemen. As we
were presented to Them, we were surprised indeed, for one
Gentleman and one Lady were two of whom we had heard much. The
Gentleman came up to Rex, Bob and myself; the Lady to Nada and
Pearl, and extended a most gracious invitation to be Their
guests as long as we were in India, and consider Their home ours
at any time.
"Will you," said the Gentleman, turning to Gaylord's Friend,
"come with these friends and bring them to us as our guests when
they are ready to come to India?"
"I shall be most happy," He replied, "to accept your
invitation and take them to Bombay in my
Saint Germain then asked us all to be seated, that we might
enjoy another precipitated dinner. The entire meal seemed more
delicious than ever. We listened attentively to the Work being
planned and the reports of what had already been accomplished.
For the first time in my Life I realized how very little the
outside world knows of this True Inner Activity, and how puny
human achievement becomes in relation to that which is
accomplished by these Ascended Masters who are expressing Their
Full Freedom as Sons of God. It is fortunate indeed that there
are infinitely more magnificent ways of Life than our humanity
is now experiencing. When one can look away from his own mental
concepts long enough to get a perspective of his own intellect
in relation to the rest of the Universe, he really begins to
learn something of importance.
We all need to take mental journeys that will stretch our mental
muscles, and realize that each human intellect is only one out
of approximately three billion souls in incarnation upon this
Earth. Our Earth is one of the smallest in our solar system. Our
system is only an atom in the galaxy to which we belong, and
there are galaxies of galaxies.
When the student thinks of this occasionally, he will no longer
be able to accept the conceited theories and egotistical
opinions of intellects that scoff at and doubt the existence and
marvelous Manifestation of Perfection which these Ascended
Masters constantly express.
The personality of anyone is only of as much importance in the
magnificent scheme of Life as it is obedient to the "Mighty I AM
Presence," by letting Perfection expand into the outer activity
of the individual. Otherwise the personality is only a barnacle
in the Universe, using substance and energy without building
Time sped by on wings under the intensive Training we were
receiving from these Great Perfected Ones until the day came for
the Great International Council. The Brothers and Sisters kept
arriving at intervals from every part of the world; and when the
meeting was called at seven o'clock, more than two hundred
Guests were present, most of them being Chiefs of the various
Councils. When all were in readiness, we bowed our heads in
silence and awaited the arrival of the Great Presiding Master.
Suddenly a Great Oval of Dazzling Light appeared at the head of
the main table. As we watched It steadily for a moment, a man's
form gradually became visible within It, growing more and more
definite and tangible as He lowered the vibratory activity to
manifest in our octave of consciousness, until His Body became
clearly visible, perfectly tangible.
His face was truly magnificent, glorious and radiant to
behold-the eyes dazzling-and His whole Being luminous from head
to foot with the Majesty and Power of His "Mighty I AM
Presence." The first tones of His Voice sent an Electrical
Thrill through my body that I shall never forget through¬out
Eternity as He said, "Beloved Ones, be seated."
After listening to a brief report from certain of the Brothers,
He commended Them, and then in a very brief manner gave
directions for Their continued Work. When He had finished, He
turned to us, saying:
"We can use many more who are at a point where they are ready to
be trained in the Understanding and use of the Great Cosmic Rays
of Light. It is My Privilege to inform you that We have ten with
Us who are ready-if it be their desire to take up the Work." All
was intense expectation as He asked those whose names He called
to stand if they were present. Then He went on:
"Nada, Pearl, Leto, Rex, Bob, Electra, Gaylord and His Beloved
Friend, Nada and Daniel Rayborn. Beloved Sisters and Brothers
from America, this event brings very great joy and is of much
importance to the Great White Brotherhood. You are to be
congratulated, as well as the Brotherhood, that this has become
possible. Within a short time you will go to India for a stay of
Training, and then return here to finish it. You will be
instructed in the use of these Mighty Rays, and through Their
Use, you have an opportunity to give a Transcendent Service.
"On the fourth day from today, you will return to Alexandria,
and there Electra will join the party. From thence, journey at
your convenience to Bombay. Your Beloved Host will conduct you
to your destination. Is there the slightest objection on the
part of anyone chosen for this Work? If so, speak now."
We all joyously accepted and expressed our gratitude for the
opportunity to serve in this way to the best of our ability.
There was a great deal more under consideration at that time
which was of great importance, but I have not permission to
record it here. The meeting finished, and we spent an hour
meeting the other Members present. Our Friend from India
presented us to the Presiding Master, and I shall never forget
the Power that shot through my body as I shook hands with Him.
It seemed as if I were lifted completely off the floor. One of
the Brothers from South America brought us greetings from
Gaylord, whom he had seen two days previous.
The entire Council was a Perfect Manifestation of Great
Decision, Supreme Wisdom and Limitless Activity. Presently,
beautiful strains of Music were heard in the atmosphere, and all
turned involuntarily toward the Master. He raised His hands,
giving His Blessing to all present; and as He did so, He rose
from the floor, the Oval of Dazzling Light enfolded Him, and He
Never in all Eternity will I ever forget that first visit to the
Arabian Retreat of the Great White Brotherhood. Four days later
we left this marvelous Haven of Peace, Light, and Wisdom, with
the Love and Blessings from all Its Members whose Loving Service
to the "Great I AM Presence" in themselves and in all humanity
is the most wonderful Activity in Life's Experience. We made the
trip back to the coast of Arabia by night, where the yacht
awaited us; and a few moments after we went aboard, we were
gliding swiftly through the Red Sea on the wings of the night.
The next morning we breakfasted on deck in order to watch the
sunrise, for in that part of the world, it is truly a most
glorious spectacle. The evening of the second day we arrived at
Electra's home in Alexandria and found She was fully aware that
She was to serve with us in using the Great Cosmic Rays of "The
Light of God that never fails."
