In celebration of Columbus Day, here is an excerpt from a 1958 Pearl by the Maha Chohan published in the Pearls of Wisdom Vol. 1 No. 8.
In dignity and poise divine on that day centuries ago did the beloved Christopher Columbus, today the Ascended Master Saint Germain, stand at the helm of his ship, the Santa Maria. The captain named it for the beloved Mary, Mother of Jesus, in memory of those holy Judean days when he (as Joseph) had so lovingly watched over those precious lifestreams, particularly during their flight into Egypt where they sought freedom and sanctuary from Herod’s wrath.
Now, in the time of his need these same beloved ones, Jesus and Mother Mary, who long since had ascended, watched over him as in the embodiment of Columbus he stood dauntless against tremendous obstacles, sent to find new trade routes to the East, yet determined in his spirit to reach the land where his hope of a free world would find physical birth in future years.
Sustained by an inner conviction which lighted his heart, that conviction that his project was in fulfillment of a part of God’s great divine plan, and sustained as well by the radiation of the beloved Jesus, Mary, and myself, this blessed lifestream held steadfast to God not only through the storms of the elements but through the shadows of human creation which attempted to divert his attention from his divine goal. Added to the dangers of travel by sea in those days, especially in the none too seaworthy ship he commanded, was the mutiny of his crew, whose ungoverned fear, greed, and selfishness would have appalled and overcome most men, for it threatened the success of his entire enterprise.
However, by his constant holding to a high faith in attunement with his own beloved I AM Presence and the comforting presence of my Holy Spirit anchored right within his beating heart, he consciously expanded through his outer self the pure love of his own divinity, regardless of outer appearances. Thus he won the day and his overwhelming victory was made manifest for an entire world to witness.
Yet even though his immediate victory was thus achieved, it yet required another day and other lifestreams to bring into manifestation in that new world which he had discovered at least some of the freedom which he knew God intended for it. Up to the time of this successful voyage by Christopher Columbus, this vision of a free world had had secret and holy shelter within the heart of Columbus alone, so far as the unascended of this world were concerned.
Now, building upon the foundation of this gift of the unascended lifestream of Columbus, there is given unto the men and women of America today the opportunity sincerely to pray in faith and work in constancy, patience, and determination to protect, sustain, and expand the God-security of eternal freedom through the release of Divine Love, which it is the destiny for true Americans everywhere to express.
So, as Christopher Columbus, your beloved Saint Germain gave his very life to serve and bless all mankind with God’s good through the fulfillment of his divine plan. Today, ascended and eternally free in our realms of light, he continues to work with unascended sons and daughters of Light in this octave, endeavoring to lift them to the pinnacle of divine freedom through the recognition and acknowledgment that the outpouring of the feelings of Divine Love will bring eternal freedom in the Light not only to your land of America but to all this dear earth and all her evolutions individually and collectively.
This acknowledgment and use of the light of Divine Love as the Master Presence over all substance and energy is a treasure of God’s heart and of your own. When put into constant, joyous practice by one and all, it will bring more quickly the full blessings from the Ascended Masters’ octave into this physical appearance world, especially to those who aspire to divine manhood and womanhood in the Christ expressed right here and now.
