And the dragon was wroth
with the woman, and went to make war with the remnant of her
seed, which keep the commandments of God, and have the testimony
of Jesus Christ.
-- Revelation 12
And this they do because they indeed drink of the cup of Christ, the blood of the New Covenant.Transmuting as they go,
The wiles of weal and woe
My conquerors of the foe
Reestablish the way ye know.
They refused to return to the way of truth.And they were not ashamed when they committed the abomination of the misuse of the sacred fire of the Mother: therefore shall they fall among them that fall, even as the life-force within them is fallen.
They spake not aright, and no man repented him of his
And from the least unto the greatest they were given to covetousness.
From the prophet even unto the priest every
one was dealing falsely.
For they have healed the hurt of the daughter of
my people slightly, saying, Peace, peace; when there is no peace.
-- Jer 8:6, 10,11.
In the time of their visitation they shall be cast down.And therefore, because profaneness is gone forth from both prophet and priest of Jerusalem, I will feed them with wormwood and make them drink the water of gall. For the land is full of adulterers misusing the sacred fire of the Mother.
I will surely consume them ... And the things that
I have given them shall pass away from them.
[Therefore they say,] Why do we sit? assemble yourselves,
and let us enter into the defenced cities, and let us be silent there:
for the LORD our God hath put us to silence, and given us
water of gall to drink, because we have sinned against the LORD.
-- Jer 8:12-14.
Therefore thus saith the LORD of hosts concerning the prophets; Behold, I will feed them with wormwood, and make them drink the water of gall: for from the prophets of Jerusalem is profaneness gone forth into all the land.
And to the people he has declared: Hearken not unto the words of the prophets that prophesy unto you: they make you vain: they speak a vision of their own heart, and not out of the mouth of the LORD.
They say still unto them that despise me. The LORD hath said. Ye shall have peace; and they say unto every one of them that walketh after the imagination of his own heart. No evil shall come upon you.
For who hath stood in the counsel of the LORD, and hath perceived and heard his word? who hath marked his word, and heard it?
Behold, a whirlwind of the LORD is gone forth in fury even a grievous whirlwind: it shall fall grievously upon the head of the wicked.
The anger of the LORD shall not return, until he have executed, and till he have performed the thoughts of his heart: in the latter days ye shall consider it perfectly. I have not sent these prophets, yet they ran: I have not spoken to them, yet they prophesied.
But if they had stood in my counsel, and had caused my people to hear my words, then they should have turned them from their evil way and from the evil of their doings.
Am I a God at hand, saith the LORD, and not a God afar off...
And as for the prophet, and the priest, and the people, that shall say. The burden of the LORD, I will even punish that man and his house....
And the burden of the LORD shall ye mention no more: for every man's word shall be his burden; for ye have perverted the words of the living God, of the LORD of hosts our God.This burden of the LORD is the very pressure of the light of the I AM THAT I AM. It is the weight of his mantle. It is the presence of his Karma—his Word and his Work. It is this mantle that the false prophets of Baal have claimed.
Can any hide himself in secret places that I shall not see him? saith the LORD. Do not I fill heaven and earth? saith the Lord.
-- Jer 23:15-23, 34, 36, 24.
The Burden of the Lord
And they dream their psychic dreams and deliver the messages of the false hierarchy and the disembodied spirits of Serpent and his seed dwelling on the astral plane, claiming that their word is my Word. But my Word is like a fire, saith the LORD, and like a hammer that breaketh the rock of their pride and their ambition into pieces. And these prophets have laid unlawful claim to my Word: stealing every one from his neighbour, they lay claim to my Word. They cause my people to err by their psychic dictations and by their irresponsibility to the mantle of the messenger.
Yet I sent them not, nor commanded them. Therefore they shall not profit this people at all. These are the false gurus, the false prophets, the false Christs and the false messengers who are an abomination unto my Light! Now, therefore, they may not share in the burden of my Light, but they have their own burden. For every mans word shall be his burden. For ye have perverted the words of the LORD of hosts our God. And by thy words thou shalt be justified, and by thy words thou shalt be condemned.
All who therefore usurp the authority of the Lion, the Calf, the Man and the flying Eagle in the Matter spheres will give answer to me this day. And I will initiate them by their own unrighteous deeds and their deadly misuses of the sacred fire in the seven citadels of consciousness. And the Law will require them to take in consciousness. And the Law will require them to take in that which they have sent forth.
They have poisoned my people Jerusalem by the water of gall. Therefore they must drink the poison from the fruit of their own poisonous tree, which they have given them to drink. They must take into their own temples the poisonous philosophy of the misuse of the sacred fire which they have put upon this generation of my people.
They shall not be initiated with the fruit of the Tree of Life nor by the LORD GOD, who yet walks and talks with the twin flames of the Ruby Ray, but they shall be initiated by their own karma and their karma shall be their Guru. And I will no longer walk among them. And when they shall say with Serpent and his seed, "Peace and safety," then the sudden destruction which they have delivered upon the holy innocents shall come upon them 'as travail upon a woman with child', and they shall hear the cries of those they have murdered in their mothers' wombs. And they shall not escape!
For this is the covenant that I established with you when I brought you to the land of promise:
And thou shalt return and obey the voice of the LORD, and do all his commandments which I command thee this day.
And the LORD thy God will make thee plenteous in every work of thine hand, in the fruit of thy body, and in the fruit of thy cattle, and in the fruit of thy land, for good: for the LORD will again rejoice over thee for good, as he rejoiced over thy fathers:
If thou shalt hearken unto the voice of the LORD thy God, to keep his commandments and his statutes which are written in this book of the law, and if thou turn unto the LORD thy God with all thine heart, and with all thy soul.
For this commandment which I command thee this day, it is not hidden from thee, neither is it far off.
It is not in heaven, that thou shouldest say. Who shall go up for us to heaven, and bring it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it?
Neither is it beyond the sea, that thou shouldest say, Who shall go over the sea for us, and bring it unto us, that we may hear it, and do it?
But the word is very nigh unto thee, in thy mouth, and in thy heart, that thou mayest do it.
See, I have set before thee this day life and good, and death and evil;
In that I command thee this day to love the LORD thy God, to walk in his ways, and to keep his commandments and his statutes and his judgments, that thou mayest live and multiply: and the LORD thy God shall bless thee in the land whither thou goest to possess it.
But if thine heart turn away, so that thou wilt not hear, but shalt be drawn away, and worship other gods, and serve them;
I denounce unto you this day, that ye shall surely perish, and that ye shall not prolong your days upon the land, whither thou passest over Jordan to go to possess it.
I call heaven and earth to record this day against you, that I have set before you life and death, blessing and cursing: therefore choose life, that both thou and thy seed may live:
That thou mayest love the LORD thy God, and that thou mayest obey his voice, and that thou mayest cleave unto him: for he is thy life, and the length of thy days: that thou mayest dwell in the land which the LORD sware unto thy fathers, to Abraham, to Isaac, and to Jacob, to give them.
-- Deut. 30:19.
In this hour of cosmic cycles turning, it is given unto each soul who is of the remnant of the Woman’s seed to stand in the flaming presence of Opportunity at the open portal to unity before the hierarchs of the eight covenants of God. For those who remain with the Maitreya Guru and the Guru Ma in Eden, there are seven covenants and the eighth leading to God-integration.
The thirty-three initiations unfold as
the four times seven plus five. They are the fourfold
initiations of the seven rays plus the five steps of the five
secret rays. The five steps are
(There are a Book written by Alice Bailey
Throughout the seven sets of four on the seven rays, the twin flames weave a thousand-petaled lotus--and many lotuses as star-fire flowers marking the octaves of their habitation in the Spirit/Matter spheres--as they loop in and out of the macrocosmic center of Life to the microcosmic events in the moving stream of Matter.
The First Covenant That Has Become the Last
The first covenant is the opportunity
to return to Lord Maitreya and the Mother in the Garden of
Eden, to be reinstated in that holy innocence of the Christ
and to henceforth reject all compromise of the indwelling
light proposed as alternatives to the altar of the living
God by Serpent and his seed.
Those for whom it is prepared, who fulfill the thirty-three initiations of the path of Christhood under the Edenic covenant in this life, for them the conclusion of their descent is the ascent by the Path of the Ruby Ray. Now this is the mystery of the first covenant that is become the last and of those who reenter it in the last days to become “the firstfruits of them that slept." (1 Cor. 15:20)
You who would regain paradise lost now
have the Opportunity through Mother Omega’s flame in the earth
to stand on the line of the sixth covenant while
simultaneously entering the eighth, the fourth and the second.
For the straight and narrow line of your alignment with the Father and the Mother in heaven and in earth affords a fourfold opportunity to be as Above, so below, through the pulsating light of the crystal cord.
Those twin flames who then lost their high estate in the Karma of God, participating in his Word and his Work as co-creators with him in the co-creative process of Father and Son, and entered into the low estate of personal and planetary karma outside the circle of the Lamb must find their way in the outer world, whereas once they knew and were known in the inner world of Ma.
Meaning of Maitreya’s Name
The first two letters of Maitreya’s name hold the flame of the Mother that he bears as the Guru/Initiator of the feminine potential—the soul. The lowercase a stands for the alpha particle, that soul, or self, who has the potential to become the very Alpha light. The uppercase M, pronounced Mu (moo ) in the Greek, focuses the memory of Lemuria, the Motherland, called Mu. Wherever the Mu syllable is held sacred and intoned with reverence, this acknowledgment of the Mother Flame, this attention to her Presence invokes her Person.
When the light of Mu becomes the Ma,
it is the sign of the coming of the Mother and the Manchild.
It is God as Mother (Omega) giving birth to the offspring (alpha) of God the Father (Alpha) in the Spirit/Matter spheres. The sounding of the Ma syllable evokes the descent of the Mother’s sacred fire that contains the seed of universal Christhood.
The Mother’s sacred fire is actually the Father’s Light—Energy—Consciousness in polarity, which he alone has sealed within her sacred heart for the hour of her immaculate conception of the Universal Christ. Thus through Omega, the seed of Alpha manifests as the alpha particle—the soul born out of the shimmering alpha/beta spiral of life. And the syllable Ma is forever the figure-eight union of the Mother and the Manchild.
Now Ma, the Mother as Maitreya, establishes the path within and without for the i. The letter i, which we call the iota, stands for the individuality of God that the soul (the alpha particle) will put on as the garment of the Lord. When the iota is able to affirm the I as the Divine Entity, it is called the id-entity, or as you say, the identity. Now the alpha particle has gained another part and it is noted as the alpha/beta because it has established its own plus/minus polarity on the path of Alpha/Omega Self-realization.
The letter t, the tau,
denotes this path. It is the cross of Light-individualization
(alpha) and Light-integration (Omega) to all who ne’er depart
from the Presence of Maitreya or from the figure-eight flow of
his eight-fold path of dispensations.
But for those who do depart from the Person and the Path of Maitreya, the horizontal/vertical axes of the tau become heavy laden by their nonpolarity darkened on the hill of the horizon. Such are the divergent paths of those within and those without the garden of the Guru.
Through that tau cross, whether above or below, the r, rho, as the ray of Omega manifest in the iota,must rise to be the e, eta, above the y, and the a, Alpha, below. Can you then tell me what is the x factor of the y that is the unknown quantity in the formula you write as Ma-i-t-r-e-y-a? If you right the ritual of Maitreya and I right it too, will not the y, then, be in full view? And if so, will the iota of the Alpha become the theta or the lambda by the beta of the gamma ray?
Now lest this should pose the problem of the delta of the soul, I recommend you study the eightfold covenants that will make the bit of alpha you now view an alphabet of the Word and a lexicon of the mysteries that I tell in the tolling of the bell of the cathedral of the heart.
Let us take them one by one.
The Edenic Covenant
You see, my beloved who see, the first three root races kept the Edenic Covenant, gained their individuality in the God-flame and returned to my throne with no loss of light, no fall from grace, no deceleration of the life-force. And now, coming from the far-flung worlds of their cosmic service by recent dispensation, they have joined the Cosmic Christs and Great Silent Watchers who have gathered at the twelve portals of earth to restore the Lord’s Community of the Holy Spirit.
To those twin flames (and there were many) who accepted the compromise solutions of Serpent and his seed and were thus expelled from the garden of the Guru, Maitreya comes to call the plus, the minus of the eta and the alpha. For you are his namesake and for his Father’s name’s sake he calls you Home.
The Adamic Covenant
Those of you who bypassed your initiations on the first ray under the Edenic Covenant, given under the office of the Man on the east portal of the New Jerusalem, were therefore subject with Adam and Eve and their descendants to the initiations of the second ray, which came under the Adamic Covenant, given under the office of the Lion on the north portal.
The Adamic Covenant was and is the opportunity to follow the path of Godhood by obedience to the Law of the I AM THAT I AM, the overshadowing Presence that ever remains the guide of life. It is the provision of the Law and the Lawgiver unto those who reject the Impersonal Personality of the Lord who walks and talks with twin flames in the inner circle of Eden.
Under this covenant, the voice of the Guru is no longer heard. God as the Impersonal Impersonality speaks only through the voice of the Law, personified in personal and planetary karma. The intercessors of Good and Evil and the protagonists of Light and Darkness in the person of angelic hosts and fallen ones regularly engage the consciousness of man and woman outside of Eden in the aloneness of their trial and temptation away from the Lord’s Presence.
Conditions of the Adamic Covenant:
Balance One Hundred Percent of Your Karma
The conditions of this covenant are the same as the first, save that man and woman no longer have the personal protection of the Guru or his circle of light. The requirements of the Law for the ascension must now take into account the karma that accrues from the knowledge of relative good and evil and all the myriad laws of relativity that govern life outside the hallowed circle of the One.
In Eden it was and still is initiation one-on-one, with no loss of Christ Self-awareness as long as the Guru’s Word is enthroned in the heart and love is illumined obedience performed in honor as sacred trust between the Lawgiver, the Law and the one--the chela who is the vessel of the Above, below. Outside of Eden it is karma first, as the law of the circle and the wheels of the chakras grind out the exact requirements of the Law and of the Lawgiver that must be fulfilled if the soul is to be initiated once again by a representative of the Lord.
Until that one come, the soul rehearses its departure from the footsteps of Truth many times over. It is given exacting exercises in the right use of the Law in order that it gain momentum by right knowledge, right aspiration, right speech, right behavior, right livelihood, right effort, right mindfulness, and right absorption.
These exercises of the Law on the Eightfold Path of the bodhisattvas becoming one with the Buddha and the Mother are the way--the Middle Way of Christ-illumined action--to undo the wrong use of the Law when once again these records cycle into circumstance to present the original options: “Choose Life or death!”(Deut. 30:19.)
Again and again the confrontation is seen. On the horizon appears a person of truth, a person of error. And the command of the Christ Self unto the soul is heard: “Choose you this day whose Word ye will serve, whose Person ye will defend. For behind the masks stand the Word or the anti-Word, the Person of God or the anti-God.”
Until all of these experiences in relativity culminate in the encounter with the Lord God in Maitreya--face to face or in the person of his messenger, whoever he or she may be--the souls on the path are yet proving their preparedness to reenter the rituals and the retreats of initiation.
The balancing of one hundred percent of one’s karma and the fulfillment of the law of perfection without his intercession, without his burden of Light to counterbalance the outer darkness, is the supreme test of the Adamic Covenant. History records that only the few survived. Only one ascended--Enoch, “the seventh from Adam.”(Jude 14)
“Be Ye Therefore Perfect”
Without the personal presence of the Guru, the command “Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect”(Matt. 5:48) is most difficult to obey. For without the Standard-bearer, who can set the standards of the Standard?
Indeed, man and woman who have partaken of the fruits of the tree of the knowledge of relative good and evil have lost their absolute values of Truth, Justice, Mercy, Integrity, Peace and Love. Now these terms have but relative meanings and negative nuances that do not afford the individual that sublime contact with the God-free beings who ensoul the attributes of God and have earned the approbation of the Godhead: “This is my beloved--the blazing sun of righteousness, sun of my Sun--in whom I AM indwelling in the heavens and in the earth. Lo I AM the God of very gods in my beloved Son--in whose Presence I AM well pleased.”
Thus these Sons of God who personify the God-flame, because the God consciousness is in them and they in him, are named in the heavenly hierarchy after the attributes of the God-flame that shines forth from within them and lights the darkest night with the supernova of their sound of his Word.
They are thus called the “incarnation of the God-flame of Peace,” the “incarnation of the God-flame of Truth,” or in the case of the feminine qualification of the absolutes of God, the “incarnation of the Goddess-flame of Justice.” These titles have been shortened to read God of Peace, God of Truth, or Goddess of Justice, and so forth.
Those who have lost the perception of the absolutes of the Godhead and the attributes of his divine nature embodied in his emissaries, which are at once personal and impersonal, formed and unformed, have no conception of that cosmic consciousness of his hosts who have never descended from the grace of his Presence and who, by that grace, ensoul vast sectors of the Spirit/Matter universes.
I assure you, my beloved, were they to behold them face to face through their own Christ consciousness, such as these would exclaim, “Lo, a God is born!” And so it would be in their consciousness, although these God-free beings pre-existed the beholders’ newfound awareness of the limitless potential of Being with which the Lord God Almighty has endowed the Elohim creation.
Under the Adamic Covenant, All Could Have Reentered the Path of Initiation
But for Enoch, who “walked with God and was not, for God took him,”(Gen. 5:24) under the Adamic covenant the descendants of Seth as well as those of Cain and the other earthly evolutions compromised the light of the Holy of holies in the seven centers of being. And the waters of life misqualified became the waters of the flood for the sinking of the continents. Nevertheless, within the Adamic covenant, had they remembered, honored and obeyed the Word of the Lord Maitreya unto Adam and Eve, they could have reentered the path of Christic initiation.
Within this second covenant as in the first, the seeds of the thirty-three spirals are sown in the so-called DNA chain. By this wonder, I would allow you to glimpse the majesty of Life, even its mystery, which the Lord God has made accessible to his sons and daughters. It is so near, my beloved, yet so very far from those who have been the abusers of God’s Life from the beginning.
Yet, it is true that the Alpha and the Omega of thy Higher Self has sealed the very miracle of the creation itself within the temples of the male and the female that the Divine Us hath made. But God as the Holy Spirit must unlock each precious chain of initiatic light. But he would not:
For God saw that the wickedness of man was great in the earth and that every imagination of the thoughts of his heart was only evil continually.
And it repented the Lord that he had made man on the earth and it grieved him at his heart.
And the Lord said, I will destroy man whom I have created from the face of the earth; both man and beast and the creeping thing and the fowls of the air; for it repenteth me that I have made them.
-- Gen. 6:5-7
The Descent into Matter
Adam and Eve and all who were with them of our lightbearers entered the lower planes of the Matter sphere under the new Adamic covenant wearing four lower bodies (“coats of skins”) and yoked to the burden of the law of their karma with the Guru.
It was then that Adam called his wife
Eve--“because she was the mother of all living.”(Gen. 3:20)
For Adam knew that they must now open the door of opportunity for the generation of lightbearers to pursue the path of individual Christhood in the lowly estate of the flesh. He also knew that they must open the door for the laggard lifewaves scheduled to work out their karma in the physical octaves of earth.
Had they remained under the dispensation of Maitreya, they would have fulfilled their evolution in the etheric octaves unencumbered by the dense lifewaves evolving in the earth, earthy. By their departure, both they and their descendants would walk the path side by side with the fallen ones called the Watchers, who had been cast out of heaven into the earth in the Great Rebellion against the Lord God, even the Almighty.
The Story of Cain
Now the first son of Adam and Eve was the generation of their karma. Called Cain, meaning “acquisition,” the soul is acquired from outside the circle of their Guru/chela relationship with Lord Maitreya. And if you ponder it, my beloved, you will see that the law of karma is the law of acquisition: “Whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” (Gal. 6:7)
Cain’s lifestream--his name also means the “hollow root”--contained the seeds of his rebellion against the seven covenants of the seven rays that he had outplayed in his prior incarnations on the planet Maldek. His mechanized religion was a ritual of self-will perverting the ray of the Lord’s will. He sought to acquire the all-power of God with the anti-power of his sling and his spear. His offering was not respected by Maitreya because his motive was to gain favor from the Lord that he might then subdue the Lord’s light to the uses and abuses of his own subterfuge.
Cain worked hard tilling the ground, not to the glory of God but to gain God’s power that he might exercise that power over others. In reality he, like the Canaanites who dwelled in the land west of Mu (hence the term Amunu), was a worshipper of the Force. This term, which we hear popularized today as a substitute for the name of God, refers to the Serpent force, the coiled Kundalini, the all-power of the Mother.
The Canaanite evolutions were worshippers of the Serpent, both as the person of the fallen one and as the life-force sealed in the white fire core of the base-of-the-spine chakra.
From this religion of the fallen ones come all the phallic and fertility rites of primitive cultures. Their archetypes can be seen in the Ugarithic pantheon whose chief deity is Il or El. This syllable comes from the El, the power of Elohim usurped by the fallen ones. This Il, or L, is the abbreviation for the name Lucifer, called the sky god.
He is known in numerous cultures as the father of the gods, their supreme lord and ruler in their assemblies. The councils of the false hierarchy gathered on certain mountains of what is now North America as well as in the Middle East. Baal and his wife Asherah, along with Tammuz and Ishtar, are among the many fallen angels who fell, they and their twin flames. They were a race of giants feared by the descendants of Seth.
The Watchers and the Daughters of Cain
The Flood was the judgment decreed by the Word of the emissaries of the Lord God when the descendants of Seth did not cleave unto the Law and the Lawgiver. Not by conscience nor by the conscientious adherence to the teachings recorded by Adam and Eve, establishing the way of life for their children outside of Eden, did these descendants walk. Rather did they walk after the pride of the Watchers.
And the gods who taught them this devious route to obtain the Divinity were the fallen angels who “kept not their first estate”(Jude 6) but fell with Lucifer. These are they who took unto themselves “the daughters of men”(Gen 6:4) and bore a godless, soulless creation called the Nephilim --through whom they would perpetuate their manipulation and mechanization of the masses.
These fallen angels were now embodied in the physical earth because they were cast out of the higher octaves for their rebellion against the Son of God and the heavenly orders of hierarchy. Their union with the daughters of Cain was not in the spiritual order of God’s progeny, who are born solely out of the Christic seed.
The Lord cursed this offspring of their lust, for they lusted after his power and sought to entice and entrap it through intercourse with the daughters of Cain. This was the abominable abuse of the Serpent force (the very Life-force of the Mother and the Holy Spirit) called the “abomination of desolation”(of the desolate ones who have no God in them), standing in the holy place of the temple where it ought not. (Matt. 24:15; Mark 13:1)
This cursed lifewave, the “mighty men which were of old, men of renown,”(Gen. 6:4) became the mere natural man, without soul or conscience or spark of the divine potential. The natural man, now called Homo sapiens, was a “kind of man” but not a God-free being after the descent of Adam from Seth to Noah. Hence the crossbreeding of the Watchers and their godless creation with the children of Cain opened the door for laggard evolutions to embody on earth and the interchange of these several fallen evolutions became known in general as “mankind.”
The sons and daughters of God and their children are a distinct race of the I AM consciousness. And they are called the I AM Race. (All AMERICA-NS) It was to them that Moses spoke when he hurled to them his fiery fiat to break the hypnotic spell of the Watchers and their slave race: “I have said, Ye are gods, and all of you are children of the Most High!” (Ps. 82:6)
The Noahic and Abrahamic Covenants
The Noahic Covenant replaced the Adamic as the Lord God once again sought to establish by the Holy Spirit his God-government in the earth after the sinking of Atlantis and the interruption of the evolution of the lifewaves of the planet.
Under the patriarch Abraham, the covenant is established for the reincarnation of the Christic seed and of the future of the I AM Race, with the twelve tribes of Israel founding the Community of the Holy Spirit worldwide, laying the foundation for the promised redemption through the Word.
The Mosaic Covenant
The covenant of Moses once again establishes the interaction of the Lawgiver through the one who is the embodiment of the Law--the Guru. Their violations of the Law of Moses are recorded together with the judgments of Jehovah. And though the prophets of the I AM THAT I AM were in their midst, their rebellious generation resulted in the Assyrian and Babylonian captivities. And the Old Testament is the history of the living Word, born in flesh and blood, waxing strong in the Lord, entering into the inner retreats of the Brotherhood and emerging for the Messianic mission.
The Palestinian and Davidic Covenants
Thus there can be no restoration of souls, nor of Israel, without the Palestinian covenant promising the conversion by the personal and direct confrontation of the Ascended Master Jesus Christ with his disciples and of all ascended masters with their chelas.
There is no return to the house of the Lord. Thus the Davidic covenant is the sign of the path of persecution borne by the soul of Jesus Christ when he was embodied as David. All of the preparations of his soul for his final incarnation represent the door of opportunity to those who would follow in his footsteps.
In the Twenty-second Psalm, he foresees
the hour of his crucifixion with the words “My God, my God,
why hast thou forsaken me?” (Ps 22:1) that he
is to utter again on the cross. It is the initiation given to
every one who stands at the north gate of the City Foursquare,
preparing to enter in to the crucifixion, the resurrection and
the ascension. Step-by-step the nature of the crucifixion is
revealed beforehand that the eyes of the soul might be opened
and that he might understand the nature of the cup he may
choose to drink or not to drink.
To Those Who Would Bear the Lord’s Burden of Light:
They that hate me without a cause are more than the hairs of mine head: they that would destroy me, being mine enemies wrongfully, are mighty: then I restored that which I took not away.
O God, thou knowest my foolishness; and my sins are not hid from thee.
Let not them that wait on thee, O Lord God of hosts, be ashamed for my sake: let not those that seek thee be confounded for my sake, O God of Israel.
Because for thy sake I have borne reproach; shame hath covered my face.
I am become a stranger unto my brethren, and an alien unto my mother’s children.
For the zeal of thine house hath eaten me up, and the reproaches of them that reproach thee are fallen upon me. (The sacred fire of thy white-fire body hath utterly consumed me, for I have borne thy white-fire cross and the reproaches of them that reproached thee are fallen upon me.)
-- Psalm 69:4-9.
Psalm 69 sets forth the path of one who would lawfully and joyfully claim the Lord’s mantle as his burden of light. Thus shalt thou also do, my beloved, when thou shalt enter in to the full sharing of my Personhood, to which I bid thee saying, Drink me while I AM drinking thee.
But I hide not from you the course of
your choosing. It is a path of sorrows that is turned to a
path of joy. It is the cup of personal and planetary karma
filled to the dregs and transmuted by the joyous cup of
resurrection’s sacred fires.
Then there is the deadly cup of the
poison of Serpent and Serpent’s seed, who posed as my prophets
and priests and princes in Israel. To them I gave the cup of
the water of gall. This is the cup that will utterly destroy
them, but it cannot destroy my saints who have drunk of the
cup of the New Covenant, for they have no part with Serpent
and his seed. And though they “part my
garments among them and cast lots upon my vesture,” they still
cannot take my yoke upon them nor learn of me, “for my yoke is
easy and my burden is light.” (Ps. 22:18; Matt. 11:30).
And I give it unto all who are engaged in the sacred labor of the Holy Spirit, all who are passing the initiation of the Calf who, as the great bearer of our burden, is become the Ox who is heavy laden with the burden of personal and planetary karma.
Those who wait upon the Lord, the beloved I AM Presence, day and night, have entered into the initiation of the sacred labor and the karma to which my Son Jesus referred. Only personal discipleship to Christ in the archetypes of Christhood--the Man, the Lion, the Calf and the Eagle--can afford the devotee the privilege of taking upon himself the yoke of the Lord and thus entering into his understanding, his Cosmic Christ consciousness.
The Mode of the Ox
In this scene from the great drama of his fourfold Christhood, the Great I AM of Jesus, the Lord, descends from the right hand of God where he rules as the chosen Son and heir--the Calf who is to be sacrificed--and takes on the mode of the Ox, the great burden-bearer of the sins of the world.
The Ox, often the castrated male, is the God incarnate who has set aside his authority, even his polarity and his God-free estate, to dwell among his people and bear their karma, transmuting their burden by the light that he is until they become that light.
The mode of the Ox is in fact that of the
slave serving the Master who is the God indwelling in the
disciples. This, then, is the cosmic interchange whereby the
living Guru exchanges garments with his chelas. Though they
revere him as Guru, they do not often see that the burden he
carries is their own.
Thus the Great I AM of the Lord Jesus is become “meek and lowly in heart”(Matt. 11:29) in the guise of the Ox, even stationed on the west gate of the Matter sphere where the multitudes throng him with hosannas on one day (for he healeth all their diseases), and cry out, “Crucify him!” the next (because he exacts a price for the light he imparts and the transmutation he effects).
The promise of “rest unto your souls,” given unto those who will walk in the shoes of the Guru while he walks in theirs, is the re-creation of their four lower bodies and of the cycles of their chakras as he mathematically and geometrically outpictures the mantra: Drink me while I AM drinking thee.
The taking in of the Holy Spirit of the Guru means the taking on of the sacred labor of the holy one of God. Thus world service is given in exchange for world karma. And the cry of the peddler, “New lamps for old!” is the lure of God to the soul who must surrender the self if he is to be made whole.
Bearing the Guru’s karma to bring enlightenment to a world, the chela enters into the service of the World Teachers. And the rest unto the soul becomes the acceleration unto light as the chela verily embodies the icon of the Guru in his heart and delivers his light in the self-creative/re-creative process--truly the alchemy of his Guru’s Word incarnate.
Now he discovers that the yoke of his Guru is easy and that his burden is light, never knowing the price that is paid by that one who, as the Ox, quietly affirms, “I AM meek and lowly in heart, and ye shall find rest unto your souls.”(Matt. 11:29)
The New Covenant Is the Path of the Ruby Ray
This is the New Covenant of the eighth ray and this is the decade when you, my beloved, may learn of me, as I AM the Guru embodied in all the Ascended Masters who have become the Lamb. This is the Path of the Ruby Ray. Walk ye in it while ye have the light of the witnesses who witness unto the light.
Those who are my disciples following the
fourfold path of Christhood under the blessed chohans of the
rays, for they obey the command, “Drink ye all of it, “ (Matt. 26:27) are so
filled with the Light of the Man, the Lion, the Calf and the
flying Eagle that the promise is unto them that if they “drink
any deadly thing, it shall not hurt them.”(Mark 16:18)
For the sacred fire of the Guru’s resurrection is upon them and in them and he in them (“I in them and thou in me”(John 17:23). It utterly consumes any and all spirals of the Serpent that would enter the hallowed circle of identity or penetrate the Holy of holies of the dazzling cross of white fire.
Drink of the Cup of the New Covenant
The sixth-ray initiations at the north gate in the Matter sphere are the crossroads of life. They begin at the Last Supper when the one who is Christ transfers to his disciples the opportunity to drink his cup and to eat his bread. The bread that he broke and blessed is the bread of his own life. “I am that bread of life. Your fathers did eat manna in the wilderness, and are dead. This is the bread which cometh down from heaven, that a man may eat thereof, and not die.”(John 6:48-50)
He shared his body of light, both his spiritual light-body and the body of his experience in the earth. And the cup that he gave to them saying, “Drink ye all of it” is the essence of the light of Alpha and Omega, the balanced life-force raised that raises the soul up, up the initiatic ladder (spiral) expanded in the sacred heart and accelerated as an ascension coil from the base unto the crown.
Ye are called to follow Christ Jesus and the light initiated by the Christ Self in the regeneration, the re-creation, of the soul in the likeness of the Son of Man--in the likeness of the Central Sun of the I AM Presence. For every chela who follows the Guru in his regeneration out of the Matter spheres unto Spirit, when the Guru as the Son of man shall sit upon the throne of the Lamb in his glory (Great Causal Body), the chelas shall sit upon the twelve thrones of the twelve solar hierarchies of the Son.
And whether there be twelve or twelve thousand or the 144,000, they shall be positioned at the twelve gates of consciousness, guarding the holy city, judging the twelve tribes of Israel, separating by the Word the light and darkness of the children of Israel (of God-Reality) on the west gate, who are entering in by the twelve paths of initiation.
This New Covenant is the opportunity for the soul to drink in the light of Christ as he takes unto himself the burden of the soul’s karma. In this interchange, the soul is filled with the light of the Christ Self, and the Christ Self transmutes the energies of sin, the records of karma--that which is out of balance or in a state of imbalance with the light of Alpha and Omega.
The New Covenant is therefore the opportunity to receive this grace through the Word and Works of the LORD on the path of individual Christhood. Those who would enter this grace must be willing to take every step on the path of initiation of the Ruby Ray promised to the saints by Jesus when he said, “Ye shall indeed drink of the cup that I drink of, and with the baptism that I am baptized withal shall ye be baptized.”(Mark 10:39)
Judgment by the Saints
Who Drink of the Cup of Christ
This promise of the path of initiation has been overlooked, to say the least, by the false pastors of my people who are denounced by the Lord through Jeremiah prior to the transfer to them of the cup of the water of gall and of wormwood. It is then that he promises the coming of the good shepherds who shall feed the people through the indwelling Person of the Son of God, THE Lord OUR RIGHTEOUSNESS.
These shepherds among you are the living saints who are pursuing the path of the World Teachers. For in this day is the judgment come upon the pastors that destroy and scatter the sheep of my pasture: “Ye have scattered my flock and driven them away and have not visited them. Behold, I will visit upon you the evil of your doings, saith the Lord”(Jer. 23:2)
The judgment of the fallen ones who have taken up their positions of authority in church and state preempting the burden of the Lord is therefore upon them on each occasion when a saint of the Church elects to drink of the cup of Christ and to be baptized with him. The judgment comes each time a saint replaces a Sadducee, a Pharisee or a member of the Sanhedrin.
Those who have not fulfilled my covenants among the people, those who have not laid the groundwork for the seven covenants, will not enter in to the eighth covenant whereby they partake of my blood, which is the Ruby Ray. While they are yet under the law of their own sin, for they have made their own sin the law of their existence wherein they have become a law unto themselves, they will not be invited to the marriage supper of the Lamb wherein the Lord says unto his beloved, Drink me while I AM drinking thee.
When their judgment is come and all
things are fulfilled, then the remnant of the flock will be
gathered out of all countries whither the law of their karma
has driven them. And they will come in again into their folds,
the twelve paths of initiation of the twelve tribes of Israel.
And each of them shall knock at each of the twelve gates in
succession. And they shall be fruitful in the Christ
consciousness and they shall increase in the knowledge of the
I AM THAT I AM.
Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will sow the house of Israel and the house of Judah with the seed of man, and with the seed of beast.
And it shall come to pass that like as I have watched over them, to pluck up and to break down and to throw down and to destroy and to afflict, so will I watch over them to build and to plant, saith the Lord.
In those days they shall say no more, The fathers have eaten a sour grape, and the children’s teeth are set on edge.
But every one shall die for his own iniquity: every man that eateth the sour grape, his teeth shall be set on edge.
Behold, the days come, saith the Lord, that I will make a new covenant with the house of Israel and with the house of Judah:
Not according to the covenant that I made with their fathers in the day that I took them by the hand to bring them out of the land of Egypt; which my covenant they brake, although I was an husband unto them, saith the Lord:
But this shall be the covenant that I will make with the house of Israel. After those days, saith the Lord, I will put my law in their inward parts and write it in their hearts; and will be their God, and they shall be my people.
And they shall teach no more every man his neighbour, and every man his brother, saying, Know the Lord, for they shall all know me, from the least of them unto the greatest of them, saith the Lord. For I will forgive their iniquity, and I will remember their sin no more.
-- Jer. 31:27-34.
The Cup of World Karma in the Garden of Gethsemane
Now, my beloved, it is necessary for you to enter in to the Garden of Gethsemane that you might fulfill all these things that were told to you by beloved Lord Maitreya in the beginning of your path, that they might be fulfilled in the ending. For here you will make the decision to drink or not to drink the cup of sorrows even unto death, the death of your former life and lifestyle, that you might come into the fullness of his life--the life universal and triumphant of the Guru of the Ruby Ray.
This is the hour of the cup of world
karma. “Behold, the hour is at hand and the Son of man is
betrayed unto the hands of sinners.”(Matt. 26:45)
This is the hour of the revenge of the fallen ones when the Son of man takes into his heart the misqualified power of their manifest darkness. And this he must do while the children of God make haste to fulfill the vows of their individual Sonship, hastening, then, to also walk in his footsteps that they might know the meaning of the sacred heart and the cosmic interval provided by the Lord for their soul’s initiations on the Ruby Ray.
And Peter, James and John were with him, and he bade them keep the prayer watch with him as he prepared to be fastened (crucifigere) to the cross of the sins of the world. He, the Ox, was fastened to the yoke of the vertical and horizontal bars of mankind’s transgression of the Law of Alpha and Omega.
This yoke, then, that formed his cross included the words and works of the Devil that they might be destroyed by the blood of the New Covenant. And he knelt in prayer, saying, “Father, if thou be willing, remove this cup from me: nevertheless not my will, but thine, be done.”(Luke 22:42)
And the light of the initiation of the Father within the Son was so intense and the burden of the karma of the Lord’s chosen people and of the laggard races was so great that he himself sweat as it were “great drops of blood.”
And when he found the disciples sleeping,
he said unto them what he says unto you today: “What,
could ye not watch with me one hour? Watch and pray,
that ye enter not into temptation: the spirit indeed is
willing, but the flesh is weak.”(Matt. 26:40-41)
And he went away and prayed the same prayer a second and a third time, each time finding the disciples asleep.
Finally, to those who could not partake of his cup in that hour, those for whom it would be reserved in the end times, he said, “Sleep on now, and take your rest; it is enough, the hour is come. Behold, the Son of man is betrayed into the hands of sinners. Rise up, let us go. Lo, he that betrayeth me is at hand.” (Mark 14:41-42)
The cup of karma he drank was so great that it would take him through the valley of the shadow of death, preceding the glorious resurrection that his soul had foreseen when he wrote the Psalms of David. In the three prayers Jesus prayed, he accepted the weight of world sin against the Father and against the Son and against the Holy Ghost.
The Cup of Betrayal
And the fourth cup that he took was the cup of betrayal. How many times and by how many would he be betrayed before he gave up the ghost on Golgotha?
First, by the three who slept in the garden, the betrayal of the unconscious mind; then by Judas with the kiss of familiarity, mockery and contempt; then the betrayal of Peter’s uncontrolled emotion as he cut off the servant’s ear who sought to take him--Peter who had once forbade the Lord when he began to speak of his crucifixion saying, “Be it far from thee, Lord.”(Matt. 16:22)
In both instances, the Lord rebuked him for humanly interacting with world thought and feeling. This third betrayal was again by his own: the very one who had declared, “Thou art the Christ, the Son of the living God,” now denied his Lord--“Verily I say unto thee, that this night, before the cock crow, thou shalt deny me thrice.”(Matt. 16:16; Matt. 26:34; Mark 14:30)
The fourth betrayal was by the band of soldiers and officers sent by the chief priests, the Pharisees, the Scribes and the Sanhedrin. And finally came the betrayal of Pilate himself who, although he washed his hands of the blood of the innocent man, yet released Barabbas and allowed the seed of the Wicked One to crucify him.
In this scene, we see the betrayal of the Christ by the mass consciousness, even the multitude, the great multitude of the people who would one day stand on the west gate of the City Foursquare awaiting the coming of the emissaries of the Lord in the hour of their own redemption by his light.
The sixth betrayal came when he said, “I thirst,” (John 19:28) and the seed of Serpent gave him vinegar to drink, mingled with gall. And when he had tasted thereof, he would not drink. Thus he rejected their attempt to put upon him the cup of the water of gall that the Lord had given them to drink for their blasphemy against his name.
Therefore, he established his crucifixion for and on behalf of the lightbearers of God, and rejected for all time and space what the seed of Serpent embodied have claimed since that era, that he died for their sins. He died for the sins of no man, but he took upon himself the sins of God’s children that he might be resurrected in light, that he might live for their redemption.
And he was betrayed by the malefactor who joined in with the passersby who reviled him, wagging their heads and saying, “Thou that destroyest the temple and buildest it in three days, save thyself. If thou be the Son of God, come down from the cross.” (Matt. 27:40)
And again the chief priests with the
scribes mocked him saying, “He saved others; himself he cannot
save. If he be the King of Israel, let him now come down from
the cross, and we will believe him. He trusted in God; let him
deliver him now, if he will have him. For he said, I AM the
Son of God.”(Matt. 27:42-43)
I go before you all the way Home.
