Ascension Quotes Part 3
10. Elizabeth Clare Prophet, “The Love of the Guru and the Chela,” July 2, 1977
“This is the test of the chela: to see whether he is ready to follow his guru all the way through the testings of the guru's ascension….”
“In the hour of the ascension of the guru occurs the transfiguration of the chela. You remember the transfiguration of Jesus, a very important moment of his being, being filled with the fullness of that incarnation of the Word…. Because the guru ascends, he becomes one in the Christ Presence of the chela. The chela, then, has the entire momentum of his guru, plus his own momentum.”
9. Elizabeth Clare Prophet, May 12, 1983
“Now when Jesus was risen early the first day of the week, he appeared first to Mary Magdalene, out of whom he had cast seven devils. And she went and told them that had been with him, as they mourned and wept. And they, when they had heard that he was alive and had been seen of her, believed not.
“After that he appeared in another form unto two of them as they walked and went into the country. And they went and told it unto the residue; neither believed they them
“Afterward he appeared unto the eleven as they sat at meat, and upbraided them with their unbelief and hardness of heart, because they believed not them which had seen him after he was risen. ” Mark 16:9–14
“Is it any wonder that his own disciples doubted? Yet he upbraided them. If he upbraided his disciples then, is he not upbraiding them today, those who are so calloused that they cannot feel his ascended master Presence?…”
“In the hour of the guru’s resurrection and initiation, sometimes the worst density comes over us. We may not even know ourselves, we are so bowed down and burdened. And in the moment of greatest joy and victory we may find ourselves inadequate to bear the chalice.
“Thus, we have compassion. We see that if it can happen to those disciples, it can happen to us. So we do something about it and we don’t let it happen. We outsmart the enemy and the repetition of his temptation. We will not let him repeat the same old record, the same old darkness.”
“And after Jesus upbraided them, he was finished. He transferred the ruby ray, he gave them the upbraiding, he initiated their hearts. Then he said, ‘Go ye into all the world, and preach the gospel to every creature' (Mark 16:15).… He sent them right on and focused them on the mission.
“But the rebuke was there. It must be there, because the rebuke is the consuming of their sin by the Lord himself.”
From “I Will Walk with God!” Jesus' Ascension Day Service
8. Elizabeth Clare Prophet, February 26, 1982
“And the four and twenty elders, which sat before God on their seats, fell upon their faces, and worshipped God, saying, ‘We give thee thanks, O Lord God Almighty, which art, and wast, and art to come; because thou hast taken to thee thy great power, and hast reigned' (Rev. 11:16, 17).”
“This is a great promise of joy to us, that with that hour of the ascension of the witnesses God takes to him his power and reigns on the earth; and the kingdoms of this world become the kingdoms of our mighty I AM Presence and of our Christ Self.”
On the ninth anniversary of Mark Prophet's ascension
7. Elizabeth Clare Prophet, November 29, 1981
“The fire of the ascension current is transferred from the guru to the chelas…. You know that the putting on of the mantle of the ascension flame is the sure escape from the level of the astral plane in the physical. You know that by the law of the guru-chela relationship the chela is swept up in the mantle and the attainment of the messengers. And therefore, no matter where you position yourself, whether you’ve been here twenty years, fifty years or two days, you are still caught up in the draft of this radiance and rapture of the witnesses.”
From the seminar “On the Mother”
Justinius, January 1, 1984
“We have seen since the hour of the ascension of Mark [Prophet] a tremendous increase of light and in the quality of students who have taken up this path. [We have seen] a purification, a transmutation, and truly an immense understanding as well as a fiery application of the science of the dynamic decree, reaching to those levels that have been held in the past by priests and priestesses on Lemuria.”
5. Elizabeth Clare Prophet, February 24, 1984
‘Except a corn of wheat fall into the ground and die, it abideth alone; but if it die, it bringeth forth much fruit' (John 12:24).”
“The great mystery of the ascension of the guru is that he must choose and we must choose one or the other, however painful the choice. Either you have him live forever, encased and imprisoned in mortal form, and therefore not live in ten thousand-times-ten thousand other chelas; or you allow him to become who he is and the rain of that mighty fireworks descending ignites the spark of a million-times-a million new ears of wheat.
“And so in our hearts this evening is the great joy that you are the fruit of the ascension of this one—that he has personally nourished and contacted you, given to you his light and that infinite fire, and brought us together in Reality as the mystical body of his Christhood.”
From “The Path of the Bodhisattva,” held in celebration of the eleventh anniversary of Mark Prophet's ascension on February 26, 1973
4. Elizabeth Clare Prophet, “Your Victory Should Be Your Concern,” July 12, 1978
“As long as Mark Prophet was in embodiment we did not have to become the fullness of God incarnate because he was that God incarnate and that period was dwelling in the bosom of Abraham. We lived in the bosom of Mark.
“And so his departure, as abrupt as it was, was the thrusting of all of these little fledglings outside of that bosom of Abraham and saying, ‘Now you become what I am. And the only way you can follow me is to become what I have become. The only way you can know that I am in the room with you, the only way you can touch the hem of my garment is to go through the initiations and put on the same cosmic consciousness I have put on by the same path of initiation, the same road from the changing of the water into wine to the crucifixion, the resurrection and the ascension.'”
“And so we find that the guru that has gone on will first establish within us this intense love. We have such an intense love for Lanello that we cannot bear to be without him. It is because we love him so intensely that we want to cross into that room where he is, that we will ford any stream, we will climb any hill, we will climb the highest mountain, we will wage any battle, we will do whatever we are called to do.”
3. Lanello, July 4, 1979
“When I took my leave there was one to whom the mantle fell, our own dear Elizabeth. But when her ascension comes I daresay there shall be, as it were, a casting of lots for the robe.
“For it shall fall to many—not divided but multiplied again and again. And you who saw my beloved transfigured on my ascension day will see not one but many transfigured before your gaze.”
2. Saint Germain, August 29, 1982, Pearls of Wisdom®, vol. 25, no. 63
“Subsequently, with the messenger's [Mark L Prophet] ascension and the expansion by his heart of the gathering of forces, I sent forth the call for the teaching centers and the amethyst jewels. And therefore, strong focuses have been established in San Francisco and in Los Angeles, holding the balance against a mounting karma and a mounting disturbance in elemental life due to man’s inhumanity to man.”
1. El Morya, Pearls of Wisdom®, Vol. 16 No. 10, March 11, 1973. “The Opening of the Temple Doors”
“I say then to you, one and all, those who grieve the loss of a dear friend and teacher and those of you who are able to rejoice in his glorious attainment, that because he has gone to the Father, he can add the momentum of his Causal Body to your own that you also might do those greater works which were promised to the disciples of Jesus. Each time a son or a daughter of God ascends, those who are ready to receive it are blessed by the presence of the Holy Spirit, the descent of the Paraclete; and the communion cup of Hierarchy is shared once again with the children of God who yet dwell in the valley of becoming.
“The parting words of the avatar to those who gather round to receive the victory must always be “It is expedient for you that I go away: for if I go not away, the Comforter will not come unto you; but if I depart, I will send Him unto you.” Simultaneously, as the flame that is man rises to become one with the Flame that is God, there is showered upon those who understand the Law and who pursue its spirit, the contents of the cup of the Holy Grail. The Comforter is the essence of Life, of the Holy Spirit, that fulfills the prayer of Jesus ‘Father, make them one even as we are one.'”
