2 The Name of God Is the Key
Heart friends of the ages, I come to you in the company of the hidden man of the heart, <1>your own Christ Self. I come as a teacher; and yet I bow before your own mentor of the Spirit, the mediator who is Christ the Lord. For as I instruct the outer consciousness according to the precepts of the inner law, it is the Christ, the light of the manifestation that you call your self, who releases inspiration, intuition, and intelligence from the seat of authority that is the heart chakra.
Concentric rings of illumination expand from the heart center as a golden pink glow-ray, and the aura of man expands from the center of the heart proportionately as levels of awareness in the four lower bodies are purified to become receptacles of God’s light.
Those who walk after the flesh <2>allow the concerns of the flesh, the outer senses, and the world of material things to fill the four lower bodies with the memory of experiences, impressions, data, facts and figures of all kinds. They allow emotions and sympathetic attractions within the mass consciousness, not to mention the effluvia that collects in the physical body itself, to cave in on the heart chakra, to stifle the flow of energy through it, and to prevent the natural flow of the spiral of the Christos <3> through the vehicles that are provided solely for the experience and the expansion of soul consciousness.
Those who walk after the Spirit are those who exert the will to press the light of the heart outward into manifestation in a spiral of glory for the fulfillment of the law of the Christ in the four lower bodies. Walking after the Spirit, these do not fear to replace the anxieties of the flesh that have taken hold in the four lower bodies with the verities of the eternal Spirit.
To these, that which some have considered the pain of surrender or the so-called sacrifices of the spiritual path are neither painful nor sacrificial, but the entering in to the joy of the Lord, the joy of communion in the flame and of congruency with the law.
Once you have accepted the gift of the angel who comes with the flaming sword to write upon the heart forevermore the name of God “I AM THAT I AM,” this gift can never be taken from you, except it be by your own betrayal of that name and that flame. Like the law that is written in the inward parts of man, <4>in the core of every cell and atom of life, so the name of God written in the heart reverses the process of the law of sin and death and frees you for the law of the Spirit of life which was in Christ Jesus <5>and in every other Christed one who has walked the earth by the grace of God.
Thus the righteousness of the law is fulfilled in those who walk not after the flesh, but after the Spirit as the spiral that proceeds from the threefold flame within the hidden chamber of the heart, qualifying the energies of the physical, emotional, mental, and etheric bodies with the frequencies of the Holy Spirit.
Once the name of God is written in the heart in fire, once the entire being and consciousness of man moves daily, hourly to live that law, to expand that fire, to glorify the name of God, then the light of the heart fills the being and consciousness of man until he becomes a blazing sun of righteousness.
Now understand, then, the sacred writing “To be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.” <6> It is a question of alchemy; it is a question of attention.
The alchemy of your attention is part of the gift of consciousness whereby through the faculties of concentration—even the seven chakras of the being of man—you focalize energy for a purpose. Whether that purpose is life or death must forever be the determination of your free will. Therefore, to be carnally minded is death, but to be spiritually minded is life and peace.
“Choose you this day whom ye will serve!” <7>thunders the voice of God. And the initiate standing before the mount of God-attainment must make the decision whether to the right or to the left of the Y. And the Y is you.
Which you will you become? You can be life or you can be death. You can fulfill the spirals of life through the outward flow of the spirals of the heart. You can fulfill the spirals of death by allowing all that is carnal to destroy the last vestiges of spirituality, until the flame within the hidden chamber of the heart is extinguished in the process that is known as the death of the soul.
I call to your attention, O chelas of the sacred fire, as we begin to impel the soul higher and higher in the walk with God, that to take this teaching and to employ it for the glorying in the Lord is to rise into the dominion of the Spirit and to be, with Christ, alive forevermore. <8> But to retain the intellect as the perversion of God consciousness, to enthrone the ego in place of the Christ, and to allow the human will and the human personality to replace the destiny of the soul and its individuality is to enter the negative spiral that cycles through the long night of carnality, which terminates in self-annihilation.
The carnal mind is enmity against God because it is not subject to the law of God. <9> Because the carnal mind exalts the human ego in place of the Divine Ego, it is impossible for it to merge with the positive spirals of the Christ consciousness. Those who remain in the consciousness of the flesh, which consciousness is governed by the carnal mind, therefore cannot please God, because while they remain in that consciousness, they cannot conform with his laws.
You who would come with me into a greater awareness of God, you who would have the gift of greater power, greater wisdom, and greater love, must understand that the filaments of mortal identity must be replaced with the filaments of immortal Selfhood.
In order for you to be successful in this course, then, I recommend that you go before the altar of God, before the threefold flame within, that you kneel before that altar within the tabernacle of your own hidden chamber of the heart and make your commitment to Almighty God to defend truth, honor, and righteousness in his name.
You cannot remain neutral. For to fail to render a decision, to fail to make a choice, is in itself a decision. It is a choice, although a not-choice. To be the not-self is still recorded in the Book of Life as a choice.
Once you have made the commitment to defend the light as the energy of the Christ, to expand the flame of God and to glorify his name, you will stand forth as the sun in its zenith and you will know a power and a flow, an expansion of your aura, and an increase in the fires of the heart, the likes of which you have not seen in many incarnations.
Therefore, in this release on the heart, I cannot fail to make known to you that the simple yet compelling act of unswerving devotion, of absolute conviction to be and to follow the Christ and to take both an active and a passive stand for Christ, is the sure way to transcend the former state of limitation and to live in the light of heaven and earth forevermore. Truly you have not begun to develop the aura, to expand the consciousness, until you have made this commitment and until the name of God is written in your heart.
Those who choose the left arm of the Y, to live for the carnal mind and the lusts of the flesh and the pride of the intellect, openly profess their amorality. And their code is the code of pleasure and their cult is the cult of death.
They pay allegiance to Satan while denying his identity, not realizing that they are the dupes of the archdeceivers of mankind who pretend that death is life and that life is death. By thus distorting reality, they fool those who pride themselves in making fools of the children of God. Indeed, “there is a way that seemeth right unto a man, but the end thereof are the ways of death.” <10>
And so the prophet Malachi foretold the judgment and the death of the wicked: “For, behold, the day cometh that shall burn as an oven; and all the proud, yea, and all that do wickedly shall be stubble: and the day that cometh shall burn them up, saith the Lord of hosts, that it shall leave them neither root nor branch.” <11> This is the end of those who misuse the energies of the heart and the light of the Christ.
Before imparting unto you, then, the secrets of the heart, before unlocking the crystal fires of the heart in those who take their vow before the living God, I must make clear that since the day when God bestowed free will upon man and woman, there have been those who have gone to the right and there have been those who have gone to the left. And the name of God is the key to their allegiance. For unto those who fear the name “I AM THAT I AM” shall the Sun of Righteousness arise with healing in his wings! <12>
The rising of the Son of Righteousness is the rising of the Christ consciousness. And it is the Christed ones who shall tread down the wicked, and the spirals of the wicked shall be as ashes under the soles of the feet of the Christed ones until the prophecy is fulfilled “And I will put enmity between thee and the Woman and between thy seed and her seed; it shall bruise thy head, and thou shalt bruise his heel.” <13>
You live in the end of an age when the judgment of God draweth nigh. All over the world, mankind are making choices. Little do they know that the choices they are making in little things and in great things will soon be tallied, and they will be weighed in the balances to see whether the majority of the soul is on the side of the light and the law or on the side of darkness and chaos.
To all who would continue in these intermediate studies of the human aura, I say, beware! For if you have failed to choose God and his Christ, it would be well for you to refrain from entering the path that leads to the holy of holies. For those who enter there without the wedding garment that marks the surrender of the soul to the Cosmic Virgin will be consumed by the fires of God. <14>
Choose you this day whom ye will serve. And having chosen aright, come with me as we proceed to release, one by one, certain techniques for the expansion, the control, and the empowering of the aura essential for Christed man and Christed woman to enter the golden age of Aquarius.
I await the sounding of your commitment upon the sounding board of life. And when it is written in the book of record by the recording angels, I will come to you and make my presence known to you as the Tibetan Master come again to deliver the word of God to the age.
I am committed to your God-reality.
