THE OPENING OF THE SEVENTH SEAL
The Initiations Foursquare on the Path of the Ruby Ray
But the house of Israel will not hearken unto thee; for they will not hearken unto me: for all the house of Israel are impudent and hardhearted.
Behold, I have made thy face strong against their faces, and thy forehead strong against their foreheads.
As an adamant harder than flint have I made thy forehead: fear them not, neither be dismayed at their looks, though they be a rebellious house.
Moreover he said unto me, Son of man, all my words that I shall speak unto thee receive in thine heart, and hear with thine ears.
And go, get thee to them of the captivity, unto the children of thy people, and speak unto them, and tell them, Thus saith the Lord God; whether they will hear, or whether they will forbear.
Then the Spirit took me up, and I heard behind me a voice of a great rushing, saying, Blessed be the glory of the Lord from his place.
I heard also the noise of the wings of the living creatures that touched one another, and the noise of the wheels over against them, and a noise of a great rushing.
So the Spirit lifted me up, and took me away, and I went in bitterness, in the heat of my Spirit; but the hand of the Lord was strong upon me.
Then I came to them of the captivity at Telabib, that dwelt by the river of Chebar, and I sat where they sat, and remained there astonished among them seven days
Beloved Who Have the Courage to Accept the Lord’s Commission:
Be thou not afraid! Neither of the terror by night nor of the arrow that flieth by day; neither of the pestilence that walketh in darkness nor of the destruction that wasteth at noonday! For I, the Lord thy God, AM with thee.
O America, O nations of the earth! I AM Sanat Kumara, the Ancient of Days. I live forevermore within thy midst to show unto thee the way of the watchmen on the wall of the Lord. I call the sons and daughters of Light to mount their positions on the north gate, the east gate, the south gate, and the west gate of the City Foursquare. For destruction lieth in wait at the comings and the goings of the children of God. And the hosts of the Lord are encamped round about for the victory.
The seven holy Kumaras enlist the support of numberless numbers from every walk of life, every path of initiation, to join and enjoin the legions of light in the battle for the preservation of the flame of freedom on earth. Let the child choose to become the Son and invoke the full inheritance of his joint-heirship with Christ to put down the slayers and the betrayers of an infant humanity aborning in the womb of the Mother.
Sons of God in the vanguard of the victory, I AM come to release to you the sacred science of the Mother for your embodiment of the four faces of Christ. Now study the Cosmic Clock that has been given to you by Mother Mary through the messengers. For the foundation of the building of the City Foursquare has already been laid in her outline of the four quadrants of being and in the four Persons of the Godhead to be crystallized within the soul through the alchemical elements fire, air, water, and earth.
Now let us use this Cosmic Clock to diagram the offices of the Four Cosmic Forces: the Lion as the Father, the Calf as the Holy Spirit, the Man as the Son, and the Eagle as the Mother. Initiators of the soul under the hierarchies of Leo, Taurus, Aquarius, and Scorpio, they make the sign of the Ruby Cross.
These Four Persons of Cosmic Christhood are the initiators–through Lord Maitreya, Lord Gautama, Lord Jesus, and me through the office of the Mother and the two witnesses–of the initiations foursquare on the Path of the Ruby Ray. These initiations are: the Initiation of Sacrifice under the Lion, the Initiation of Service under the Calf, the Initiation of Surrender under the Man, and the Initiation of Selflessness under the Eagle.
Now, if you are in accord to enter the Path of the Ruby Ray and to receive its initiations, you must address the Incarnate Word in the following order of your soul’s submission to the hierarchy of light to whom the Nameless One has entrusted the Ruby Ray in your behalf:
Beloved Mighty I AM Presence, beloved Holy Christ Self, and beloved Holy Christ Selves of the saints of the Church, beloved two witnesses, Lanello and Mother, beloved Jesus the Christ, beloved Maitreya Buddha, beloved Gautama Buddha, beloved Sanat Kumara, the Ancient of Days, beloved hosts of the Lord serving unto the throne of the Lord God Almighty: I AM thy living potential become thy quickening Spirit. I AM thy child who has claimed thy Sonship. In thy name, I AM THAT I AM, I therefore invoke the initiations of the Ruby Ray through thy emissaries and thy messengers above and below, in Spirit and in Matter. For I and my Father are One, and I will to be thy witness on the path of sainthood.
Having made this invocation, you are now ready to receive the two witnesses as the person of Christ Jesus come in the flesh. This confession is your calling and the necessary conviction for your beginning on the Path.
As the two witnesses bear to you my good tidings and the true teachings of the Lord Jesus Christ, so the Lord Jesus, in the advent of this his Second Coming into your heart, speaks to you of the initiations of his great Guru, the Lord Maitreya:
First you must show forth, my beloved, the face of the Lion, archetype of the Great Baptizer by water and by fire. Through the Initiation of Sacrifice–the sacrifice of the self–your soul shall slay the beast of self-indulgence and enter into the baptism of the Lord.
To be baptized of him is to experience with him the opening of the heavens and the descent of the Spirit of God lighting upon you in him and him in you “like a dove.” To be baptized of him is to hear the voice from heaven saying, “This is my beloved Son in whom I AM well pleased. This is my beloved Son of man in whom I AM in the indwelling Son of God.” <1> To be baptized with him is to be the instrument with him of the transfer of the fire and the water unto the multitudes through the mastery of the heart. It is to teach the mastery of the Self, the soul in the Christ, in the etheric (memory) fire body.
The Lion is the wayshower through the hierarchy of Leo and the fire element. He is the archetype of the Christ in the fire quadrant of the Spirit/Matter universe. He teaches the command of the sacred fire in heaven and in earth through the angels of fire and the elementals of fire. Thus through the sacrifice of the mutable self in small ways and in great, you shall gain the self-mastery of the Immutable Self: the Lion. And you, the Lion, shall discover the Self to Be the “ION of Light.” You the “free electron” who by free election will become the “Permanent Atom” having the positive charge, saying, “I AM that I AM.” And behold, the Lion’s ION is with God! “I and my Father are One.”
Second, my beloved, you must show forth the face of the Calf, archetype of the Christ crucified. Through the Initiation of Service, your soul shall slay the beast of self-love and enter into the crucifixion of the Lord.
To be crucified with him is to be with him on the Ruby Cross in the death of the human ego and in the life of the Divine Ego. To be crucified with him is to be with him in the alchemy of Self-transcendence whereby this mortal shall put on immortality and this corruptible shall put on incorruption. <2>To be crucified with him is to be sealed with him, the chela with the Guru, in the tomb of Spirit/Matter.
This tomb is the ruby cube suspended as the sarcophagus within the King’s Chamber of the Great Pyramid. Within the center of the ruby cube, suspended at the two-thirds level where the fire burns brightly, the crucified one declares to thy soul:
I in thou and thou in me
To be crucified with him is to be with him this day in paradise <3>in the bliss of Alpha and Omega within the nexus of the Rose Cross. To be crucified with him is to be the instrument of the water, the blood, and the wine unto the initiates of the sacred fire processioning to the Sphinx, the Great Guru in Taurus. It is to teach the mastery of the Self, the soul in the Christ, in the physical (earth) body.
The Calf is the wayshower through the hierarchy of Taurus and the earth element. The Calf is the archetype of the Christ in the earth quadrant of the Spirit/Matter universes, the Christ of Alpha/Omega come in the Fohat (fire) of the El (Elohim). He teaches the command of the earth form and formless, of the Mother and the Father in the base and the crown chakras, through the angel devas of the earth and the elementals of the earth.
Third, my beloved, you must show forth the face of a Man, archetype of the living Saviour who saves his own through the resurrection of the soul unto your God and my God, your Father and my Father, ‘your’ I AM Presence who is also ‘my’ I AM Presence; <4>for “I AM THAT I AM.” Through the Initiation of Surrender–the surrender of the self–your soul shall slay the beast of selfishness and enter into the resurrection of the Son of man.
To be resurrected with him is to be the Christ Mind in the air quadrant. The literal inner meaning of Man–M-a-n–is the one who has become the Mother atom with the negative charge. In other words, the Son of God (+) who is incarnate in the Son of man (-) is become the archetype of androgynous (+/-) being in Matter (-). To be the Son of man means to evince the face, the Image, of the only begotten Son of God. To be resurrected with him is to resurrect that Image in whose likeness every living soul was made. And every living soul who is quickened must be quickened by that Image, and without that Image was not any thing made that was made. <5> It is an engram impressed upon the rods and cones of consciousness.
Souls moving to the fount of the living waters of the Ancient of Days, borne by the Christ of Aquarius, know that face shining through the prophets and the saints. To be with him in the resurrection is to be with him in the tomb of Matter for the victory of life over hell and death, for the proving unto the lost sheep of the house of Israel that death is not real and that the soul can transcend itself and the cycles of karma in time and space by the glorious Spirit of the Resurrection. To be with him in the tomb is to invoke the Flame of the Resurrection with the angelic representatives of Alpha and Omega standing at the ‘beginning’ and the ‘ending’, in Aries and in Pisces, at the ‘head’ and the ‘feet’ of the body of the Lord.
To be with the man of Pisces, who in you and in Saint Germain is become the man of Aquarius, is to descend into hell, into the astral plane, to exhort that impudent and hardhearted house of Israel–to warn the wicked from his wicked way and to warn the righteous man from his iniquity. To be the initiate of the Great Guru in Aquarius, the blessed and beloved Saint Germain, the Son of man in the Son of God, the ascended master, is to teach and to preach to the whole body of God during forty cycles from the hour of thy resurrection until the hour of thy ascension. It is to transfer the entire contents of the “roll of a book” given to Ezekiel and the “little book” given to John to the children of God on earth. <6>
Therefore keepers of the flame of God-freedom in Aquarius who would resurrect the full glory of the person of the Ancient of Days, of his memory and the mind of God in him, must be responsible for all of the teachings of the Great White Brotherhood that have gone before in this dispensation of our two witnesses. Let them then wisely study to show themselves approved unto God in order that they might receive, day by day, the initiations of the Ruby Ray. Let them secure our Word published in book and tape and lesson. Let them eat it up unto the ‘bitterness’ and the ‘burning’ in the belly and the bowels until the whole man is made whole in the face of a Man.
The face of a Man is the wayshower through the hierarchy of Aquarius and the air element. This image of the Christ fashioned as a Man teaches the command of the air in form and formlessness, of the soul in the seat-of-the-soul and the third-eye chakras, through the angels of the terrible crystal and the Great Silent Watchers of the All-Seeing Eye immaculate.
Fourth, my beloved, you must show forth the face of the flying Eagle, archetype of the Great Regenerator of water and of earth, Energy (Spirit) of Alpha/Omega in the Geometry of the El in Earth (Matter). Through the Initiation of Selflessness, your soul shall slay the beast of self-idolatry and self-love and enter into the ascension of the flying Eagle.
To be with him in the ascension, you must first show yourself alive with him after your crucifixion and your resurrection “by many infallible proofs...and speaking of the things pertaining to the kingdom of God.” To be regenerated of him is to be baptized of the Holy Ghost. To partake of his ascension is to be witnesses of his ascension “both in Jerusalem, and in all Judea, and in Samaria, and unto the uttermost part of the earth” by the power of the Holy Ghost.
To be with him in the ascension is to follow him
To be ascended with him and yet to remain unascended is to witness unto Christ’s teachings, yea his demonstration of the ascension that is promised in the end of this age to all who shall preach his gospel to every nation and every plane of being. To ascend with him is to move in and among the multitudes with a message of the soul’s liberation through the Mother Light–the white light of her ascending currents within thy body. Ascending with her, with him, “thou shalt stretch forth thy hands, and another shall gird thee, and carry thee whither thou wouldest not.” <8>
The flying Eagle, archetype of the Woman, is the wayshower through the hierarchy of Scorpio, teaching the children of God how the path of human generation becomes the path of divine regeneration through the raising up of the sacral energies of life through all of the chakras of being from the base of the spine unto the crown.
The flying Eagle is the vision of the Woman united with the Holy Ghost, the shakti of Shiva, teaching her children soul-mastery through the single-minded, single-eyed purpose: union with the God Self through the soul’s self-effacement on the path of selflessness. The hierarchy of Scorpio through the Elohim and the angels and elementals of water in earth teach the mastery of the self in the desire body through the solar plexus and the soul’s self-immersion in the Christ in the water quadrant whose mastery in Mother is the spoken Word in the full power and authority of the throat chakra. To ascend with Christ in the Woman is to be translated into the kingdom of the Father’s dear Son and to be partakers of the inheritance of the saints who have ascended in light. <9>
The ascension, my beloved, is the goal of the Path of the Ruby Ray. But we have many steps to cover until that day and many steps to uncover as you direct, in the name of the Lord and the hierarchy of his hosts, the Ruby Ray into the footsteps of your karma and your dharma that you have left as imprints on the sands of time and space.
Some of these you will efface
I have found the Way.
I AM the Way.
