Pearls of Wisdom

Forever There, Forever Here!
Let the Child Appear!
Ascension Day Address, Eighth Anniversary 1981
Twelve Cycles of Your Causal Body
You Have to Want God!


You need to break the barriers of time and space. Who has compartmentalized you?  Who has told you that you can only do certain things?  Who has told you that you cannot be everywhere in the consciousness of God?  I was. I was while I was yet in physical incarnation. I was everywhere in the Mind of God and you can be also.

More diligence, more striving is needed. Walk the path of sainthood. I walked it and I have never regretted it. Lifetime after lifetime the sacrifices were nothing compared to the great gifts of God, gifts of wonder, perception, wisdom, graces—compensations for being a member of the Great White Brotherhood on earth.

By my causal body you can walk in my footsteps, you can wear my mantle, and you can have the experiences which my soul had. But you have to want it more than you want the indulgences of self and your self-concerns and all of your projects and plans that take up both time and eternity and leave you with neither for the fruition of life.

You have to want God, as they say, more than the drowning man wants air. You have to want God and the Guru more and more, because the temptations of life will be there. Like death and taxes, the only thing sure in life is that temptation will be there, and what you must ratify is that you in God will be there to meet them.

You celebrate Lancelot. I am not satisfied. The only celebration of Lancelot is that you become the knight and you become deft in the wielding of the sword, even the sword Excalibur that can be passed to you by El Morya when you have passed certain initiations with your own sword as the science of the Word and therefore have that very special initiation of the king unto the knight.

Dealing, then, the death blows to unreality in the mind, in the feelings, in the physical plane, this must become the celebration of Lancelot. As I have said before, this is not a joke. And many men make light of the era of Camelot. They do not realize the intensity of the initiations that we had then and that are here again in this hour.

I would see the sword and the pen become one so that the flow of the Word from heart and head and hand does converge at the point of error to unhorse the fallen ones, to unseat the scornful, the haughty and the proud and to instate the little child—the child of the heart that is without guile. The child within each and every one of you is the holy innocence that is never without the inner sense of God through the five secret rays. These must be pursued as five wave lengths, as five notes on the piano.

Play, then, the five black notes that they may be heard.

[Pianist plays notes.]

Become sensitive, then, to gradations of consciousness, for the secret rays are between the seven rays. Gradations of consciousness, blendings and then the entering into the white-fire core of the blending of the flames. The secret rays when meditated upon give to you heightened sensitivity. Five physical senses cannot in any way give to you the full experience of God.

Those five senses, so-called, are in actuality apertures for infinite awareness leading to the perception, the feeling, the penetration of the very nuances of God’s consciousness by degree. And this soul sensitivity is centered in the seat-of-the-soul chakra.

Would you feel the cosmic rays of the stars?  Would you know the vibration of Sirius?  You can. I say, you can if you will, but love must purge you of grossness, of cruelty in the spoken word. Love must purge you of those receptors that still hear the demons of the night and their vanity and their profane words. Love must purge you and silence all dissonance in your consciousness. Love that glows as a fire, for what?  For God, God, God! Love that is a fire for friend and neighbor and for the child that is not seen.

Who is the child that is not seen?  Is it the child in the womb of the Cosmic Virgin?  It is the child of your own heart. The unseen child is the one who is profaned upon earth. Therefore, let the child appear. Let the child appear within you as perfect Love.

You can know all things. God has never withheld from any of his sons his perfect Wisdom and his perfect Love. You can aspire to become sages upon earth, teachers of wisdom but only by love.

Deliver me from the brittleness of those who memorize the Word without the heart of devotion!  Deliver me, then, from those who take the ocean of God’s love to the depths of psychic thralldom and the entertainment of phenomena. Deliver me, then, from those who are more interested in doctrine and dogma than in the plight of the soul itself.

How we love the flame of Love bursting for joy in your heart and as love for one another!  Blessed hearts of peace, open now and let God release through you his perfect Love. Then will you be my disciples indeed.

How can you sow the seeds of my Word unless you wrap them in the swaddling garment of love?  The seeds cannot grow unless they be enfolded in love—enfolded in the name of the Father, of the Son, and of the Holy Spirit—sealed in the cosmic cross of white fire by the angels of the Ruby Ray, sealed in the Light of Alpha and Omega in the Body and Blood of Christ. Yes, seeds of my heart and wisdom, seeds of my discipline must be enfolded in love when you pass them to another and sow them in the soul’s consciousness.

Let us realize that in this hour there is the opportunity for geometry, for a great magnitude of the multiplication of God’s consciousness in the earth through you!  And the dispensation comes forth from Alpha and Omega through my causal body to you and to your twin flame, if you will establish the tie in this hour, the dispensation to multiply and break the bread of Life through holiness, through communication—[as] conversation, [as] the writings of your heart [and as] the sendings of your soul of the sacred fire to a waiting world.

Yes, beloved hearts, the sense of limitation and the pendulum of eternity’s clock. When you hear the pendulum hear, then, the swinging of Alpha and Omega to and fro and not the segmenting of your life into the limitations of time and space. Let the swinging of the pendulum and the chiming of the great bell in the cathedral of the Lord Christ remind you that you are indeed in eternity and that you have, so to speak, a sphere of eternity to unwind here below and that all that prevents you from unwinding it now is your own sense of limitation.

On this the eighth anniversary of my ascension, beloved hearts, I am consecrating you to the initiations of the Eighth Ray. I am consecrating you to a geometric and spherical expansion of my heart, to a mighty work of the ages. May you understand the meaning of my love and the essence of my heart that I transfer to you.

All of those things which must be subdued in character, in plan, and in infinitude can be so if you will it so. You need not fret and entertain self-limitation any more. You need not conceive of yourself in sin, for no other conceived you in sin. I AM breaking up the calcification of the mental bodies as you allow it. I AM shattering the confinements of a mental belt of [this] planet.

I AM shattering the confinements of a mental belt of this planet!

Burn through, legions of Light!  Hosts of the Lord, fiery salamanders, burn through!  Shatter, then, the pall of Death over the minds of God’s people!

O expand, Eternal Mind of God, by the Ruby Ray, by the purity of a Mother’s heart, by the purity of Serapis Bey. Expand, O Mind of God within these souls. Expand, O hearts of fire with Threefold Light. Burn through by the Light of my own God-Victory!

To whom else shall I bestow it?  Where else shall I go but here to anoint you with the holy oil of Victory?  I would read to you the words of my own Master dictated through my own beloved earlier in this century.


From the Leaves of Morya’s Garden:


               I have already told you about the inner understanding of languages. Write down this legend:


               It was once proclaimed that a certain high priestess could understand any language through the inner consciousness, and wonderful results followed. Envoys from far-off lands spoke to her in their own language and she understood them. Thus there was created a legend about the eternal language.

               But crowds of people wished to be convinced about it. Many foreigners were brought forward, and the priestess was led down from the eighth floor in spite of her protests. But nothing was manifested for the people, and the strangers reiterated in vain their speeches.

Thus was ruined one of the best possibilities. Yet it would be possible to put this into practice by studying the quality of aura, because this [the aura] is the bridge of both bliss and contagion.

The ability to understand even one’s own native tongue depends not upon the ear but on the contact with other centers through the aura. Therefore, it is better to say, “I have understood,” than to say, “I have heard.”

Therefore, as to the question of aura, its color is not so important as is its inner intensity. <1>

By way of this legend, I bring to you, then, a most necessary discussion of the office of the Messenger and of my own Beloved, whose vehicles serve me well. By the aura as the bridge there is both bliss and contagion. The Messenger as the Mother occupies the eighth floor.

Beyond the seven rays the plane of the Eighth Ray is the plane of bliss. At that point of bliss and of communion the words of the Ascended Masters are spoken through the Cosmic Christ to her heart and translated from many languages of angels and of the Spirit of God.

Descending, then, to the crowds at the lower level, the ground floor [that is] beneath even the seven rays, the aura of the Messenger that is both the sending and the receiving station, no longer in bliss, is sensitized to the auras of the mass consciousness as well as [to] the untransmuted [auras of devotees] on the path of life. This contagion, then, becomes a most necessary preoccupation. For while there is contagion of the aura, [i.e., encroachment upon the aura,] there must be intense attention upon the aura by the Messenger for the transmutation of that which is the contagion of the human consciousness lest it defile the Holy of Holies and upon [her] entering once again the eighth floor bring contamination to that level.

Thus, my beloved, it is necessary to understand in this year and in this celebration that it is indeed possible to ruin one of the best possibilities—the possibility of having the Messenger for the purpose of being the Messenger, the possibility of having the Messenger for being the conductor of Light and Healing and Teaching.

Of late, then, we are most aware of the necessity of the Messenger’s tending to the administration of this activity and to the personal needs of chelas throughout the earth who require counseling, understanding, clearances and invocations—and to many dire conditions in the earth body. We also understand that at the point of the heart of the Messenger the [simultaneous] activity of being the translator of the Word on the eighth floor and the consumer of the contagion on the ground floor is not possible.

There is not the possibility for the simultaneous activity except, except the Messenger turn over to me and the Cosmic Christ the ministering to the flock on the very ground floor. Then she may retire to the eighth floor and carry on the transmission of the Word so needed for your path. This, then, becomes a divine interchange of causal bodies whereby I, Lanello, as the Ever-Present Guru, become more physical in your midst, more apparent, more seen, more there when you need the friend and the counsellor—“What shall I do in this calamity?”  And the Messenger who is physical becomes more etheric [as she goes] about her Father’s business.

Thus, it is time once again to remind all that there is a mighty work of the ages to be done on the eighth floor and on each of the seven floors where you dwell when you are in your own Christ consciousness on the ray of your current initiation. You have positions on one or more floors, offices that you fulfill. And in that level of the Christ consciousness you are upholding the very possibility, the very best possibility for there even to exist the eighth floor and the integration of the Word.

Thus, you all have the experience of being called to the ground floor, away from the planes of the seven rays of your own ordered service. And you understand that that which calls in the crowds who demand proof of the Law and the Teaching is always human questioning, doubt and fear, records of sin, disease and death. All of them encased in a consciousness of time and space, all of them wrapped in the parenthesis of this very time and space which is unreality.

Thus unreality wraps time and space and in the midst of it there comes the endless stream of the human questionings, questionings of God:  “Will he or will he not help me?  Will he or will he not save my marriage or save my family, save my job, save my finances, deliver me from the oppressor in my business, resolve my own incompleteness?  Will he or will he not?”

Fear of the absence of God and the aloneness on the Path, doubt that I AM the Ever-Present Guru to assist you in attunement with your own Christ Mind for every healing and teaching and every decision that you must make—and then the endless stream of records on the conveyor belt of the mind, the recordings of demons and discarnates, the recordings of sin and the sense of sin, the diseases that come and go, passing [through] the four lower bodies, passing into the flame (I hope, if you are diligent), the wrestling with the very tempters of Death who would steal you from your course before your life is fulfilled—these are the dire calamities that are brought to the Messenger day by day.

And out of the Mother’s heart, out of my own magnanimous heart we have provided the answers to the questionings; we have provided the call that compels the answer in one’s own heart.

Now I say, beloved hearts, let those who have put on the mantle of the Christ be willing to descend from those seven floors of service to tend to those who fear without the presence of the personal, physical shepherd. And let, I implore you, the Messenger fulfill the role of her office. For we would deliver the mandate of Sanat Kumara. We would deliver the teaching of the hour.

Therefore, beloved hearts, minister and be lovers of humanity. Understand that all have passed through the canyons of doubts and fears in other years, that the astral plane is filled with these, filled with souls and lives shipwrecked and needing the lifesaver of the rings of your own causal body.

In prayer and in personal love and conversation, therefore, help one another, but let that help be distinctly from the person of Christ and not the personality.  Let it come in the form of praying together for the will of God.

Let the Messenger not have the shutters closed to keep out the awareness of all things happening upon the earth. Let the shutters to the windows on the eighth floor not seal out the light or the interchange. But, in Portia’s name, let there be opportunity for us to speak the very words and deliver the very teachings that would provide the answers to the questions of many!

Blessed hearts, this is the dilemma of the cycles of this planetary home in this system of worlds and the vehicles that you wear. We transcend the dilemma. We provide spheres of eternity for each one. We provide you with your own mansion of light where you also may be undisturbed in your ministration and service, understanding, ah, indeed, that the requirement of your path is truly to minister to the sheep of my flock.

Dear hearts of gold, there is yet a story untold. I would tell it through the heart of the Messenger. As she has risen with me to the point of the I AM Presence and the level of the Guru, will you not rise to the limitless identity of yourself as sons of God in the center of your own Christhood and therefore be able to minister unto life, to administer this activity?

This is why I have come, for the cycles of our causal body demand it. And therefore I hurl unto you the coiled spring of gold whereby there is accelerated within you in this hour coils of your own causal body and my own that you might greater fulfill, in the maturity of the Word, all of the demands of these little ones who come so early and so new to the path of life and must be taken by the hand and led [as they take, by free will,] their own footsteps through the labyrinth, through temptation and trial. They must know that there is a human voice that will speak, that will comfort, that will listen, that will care.

Be that voice, and allow our voice to be the mouthpiece of God to you for them. Will you accept my mantle in this office, beloved?  [“Yes!”]

Then, dear hearts, I promise to you teachings that you also require, teachings that must come in answer to the unanswered elements of your own life, questions you have not spoken. For you have not known that there remain questions on your own path of the ascension. You do not come in fear and doubt, but you come yet in incompleteness—[having] gaps in the divine knowledge, [in] the gnosis of the mysteries, gaps in awareness of the path of attainment.

This is the teaching we would give and it overflows spontaneously from the very fountain of life. There are questions that you know not how to ask, for you lack the awareness of the missing links to your own causal body. [Whereas] those who come to you with fear and doubt—their pleas, their plaintive cries you understand, for you have already been there and can give them compassion and firmness and strength.

You understand that we are in this relationship to your own soul’s evolution and we anticipate your need before you cry out, before you come to the edge of the abyss. We have the teaching, we have the way, but it will not provide for you the answer unless the Messenger can deliver it before the hour of the meeting of the precipice of life.

Yes, we would have you for twelve cycles of your causal body. We would have you for the refinement of the five secret rays and the seven rays. We would hold you in our heart and then we would send you far and wide to be giants as sons of God among men, replacing the counterfeit giants of the Nephilim.

Yes, we would have you in your own Cosmic Christ consciousness, by and by. But do not be as frogs that leap into the air but land nowhere but back upon the lily pad, the selfsame pond of life. Do not leap beyond your initiations or your attainment, for what you know is what you can demonstrate in the very face of the foe that comes to tear down your Light.

In the silence of your heart, in the love of friends and Community you may demonstrate the Path, but can you demonstrate it in the very teeth of the oppressors of my people?  This is the testing. Therefore, do not assume attainment you do not have nor allow the force to tell you you do not have the attainment that you do have or the access to the attainment of my own causal body.

We as One have all that we need to slay the foe. Therefore, in your forgetfulness that we are One is your weakness and your defeat. You must never forget that I AM there and that I care and that my mantle is upon you, and that you walk with the stature of my own God-free being. In this lies the Victory, for truly I AM here and I AM there.

Let the fairest flower of my heart, then, prepare for you the most sumptuous feasts of Wisdom [and] Love that lead to the Power that you require to complete the task. Hearts of gold, it is the power of God that we would transfer to you once you have learned how not to transfer it to the fallen ones. They are determined to take from you each morsel of Light <2> by the infiltration of the mind and its manipulation, by its absence of concentration and effulgent joy.

Therefore learn the way of the keeping of Love and Wisdom, and Power will be transferred to you in your hand. Until it is so, remember the image of myself as described to you this night. And remember the symbol of the shepherd’s crook. Remember that I AM that power until it is bequeathed to you, and you may call to me, “Lanello, manifest your power here for the defeating of the foe of Light, of the Word and of the Brotherhood!”

Is power lacking?  Is there a vacuum in your soul?  I will fill it. I will release it. I will seal you in my mantle!  But I cannot transfer to you the authority for that power or its use until you demonstrate unquestionably your own nobility, your own integrity, your own honor, and your ability to meet every trial and test and temptation.

The stakes are high. We cannot afford to have our power put in the hand of a Nephilim by your human sympathy, your ignorance, your naiveté or your flirtations—temporary though they may be—with the world and its condition of consciousness.

Therefore, demonstrate the path of sainthood with Serapis Bey and see what is the power of God upon earth in this age. Every Ascended Master stands ready to act, as I have vowed to act and to be with you. But I have a prior claim, for I am the closest of them all through your own Messenger. And through this manifestation of our wavelength in the physical octave, by the perfect polarity of our Being, I am able to transfer the Light of Alpha and she of Omega of our twin causal bodies, even as you have great access to the Mighty I AM Presence and causal body of your own twin flame by the polarity of your Being.

Therefore I filter through my Beloved the causal bodies of the entire Spirit of the Great White Brotherhood. Therefore, I come to you and I AM the Ever-Present Guru!  Understand the meaning of how close I am to every one of you, how physically close. And you have but to speak the Word to bind the demons that would tear you from your virtue and your God Flame!

I seal you on this ascension day, February 26, 1981. I seal you in the heart of the Eighth Ray and I say, Occupy till I come <3> the positions of Christhood in the seven stories of my causal body. And let none be so high or mighty that they cannot descend the stairs of my own Christ consciousness to tend the beggar at the gate, the littlest child or ragamuffin or one in need or one who is so burdened as to appear unworthy.

No, indeed, there are none who are unworthy lest they make themselves unworthy after they have heard the preachment of the Word, the delivery of the Teaching. You cannot prejudge unworthiness no matter how blatant the face of unworthiness may appear.


Preach the Word!
Deliver the fire of Saint Stephen! <4>
Let them react
And by their reactions prove their unworthiness,
And then shake the dust from your shoes <5>
And be gone. Remember this:
No one is unworthy until proven unworthy.

Therefore, preach the Word
To the righteous and the unrighteous
And call upon me to roar as the roaring lion
That truly is one with the Lamb.
For I will roar and let them roar:
They will see what I have in store!

Let the meek and the humble chela open his mouth.
And let the Light be spoken.
Let it be accepted or rejected.
Let the consequences be mine
As I give them unto my Lord and my God
—My Lord El Morya,
My God, the Mighty I AM Presence in the heart of all life.

By the secret rays of my hands, O Mighty Cosmos, touch all upon earth!  Let the sendings of sacred fire from my heart be, then, the contact with hearts of gold and with the betrayers of our Word. Let the secret rays of our heart be for Love that raises up and for Judgment that casts down.

Even so, let the mighty be cast down from their seats of judgment of the children of the Light, <6> for they have not the authority of the sons of God to judge righteous judgment. <7> Therefore, they are bound in heaven and in earth by the Word of the living Son of God, Jesus Christ.

By his grace, I AM. By the flame of his Mother, I serve. By the heart of my own Beloved, I AM with you alway, even unto the victory of the Eighth Ray and your own ascension in the Light!

My beloved, speak the Word in love and forever be at peace.

 Forever there, forever here!  I AM THAT I AM.
