Conversion to the Path

By James Scully

James ScullyRemember the Alamo? Well, I sure do, for it was there in San Antonio, Texas that the Spirit of the Living God was revealed unto me in a profound spiritual experience. The fruit of this blessed encounter was my conversion to the Path of the Teachings of the Ascended Masters.

Here is my story of how this miracle came about in my life.

In the summer of 1980, upon finishing college, I moved to San Antonio to join my sister in studies of higher consciousness with a psychic group. Within a month of my arrival, she met a local Keeper of the Flame who introduced her to The Summit Lighthouse. I recall my sheer excitement for finding the Truth.

And yet, the magnetism of the leader of the psychic group kept me from fully embracing TSL at that time. In fact, for the next several months I found myself attending classes held by both groups. However, at a 1980 family Christmas party, the psychic revealed his true colors, so to speak. While sharing his beliefs, he declared emphatically that Jesus failed in his mission because he allowed himself to be put to death. Then, he went on to assert his pro-abortion stance. This exposure was consistent with the fact that he had been channeling a space alien while promoting a mechanical ascension. At that point I realized that I was being misled spiritually and that TSL held the keys to my enlightenment.

In a final attempt to keep me as his student, the psychic shared his intention to train me to be a Silva mind control instructor for his group. He thought I would make a very good teacher. Although this boosted my ego, I rejected his offer.

Instead, I made a heartfelt New Year’s resolution inspired by a teaching from the book Understanding Yourself<?em> on self-transformation through the use of the violet transmuting flame:

Those who have never experimented in the use of the flames of God for the purposes of self-improvement and the raising of the consciousness should not find fault with this method until they have experimented with it for at least six months.

Specifically, in my resolution I vowed to give a certain set of decrees daily for six weeks. Well, guess what? Within just a few days, I began to sense clarity of consciousness and a buoyancy of spirit. Moreover, one evening brought the descent of fire from heaven. Here’s my revelation. I was awakened from my sleep by the sense of a mighty being of Light tangibly present in my room. The message I received was unmistakable: ‘The psychic is a false teacher and is leading you in the ways of death and you must sever all ties to him immediately!’ It’s like the Bible verse, “There is a way which seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.” Prov.14:12

The next morning, I woke up with a firm resolve to embrace the Path of TSL all the way home. In March 1981, I became a Keeper of the Flame and have never looked back.
