This excerpt is from a dictation by Lord Maitreya given in June 1972 and published in the 1984 Pearls of Wisdom Vol. 27 No. 42.
The Truth, the Christ of your being, is the Light, and the Light is above and beyond all words! It is a vibratory quality which you may hold within the chalice of your being and recognize thereby the passions of God.
Hence, I take you and charge you this night, in the name of the Lord God of hosts, into that spirit of high regard for His being. Come with me a moment into the Light and consider yourselves no longer embodied in form. Free spirits, immortal and blessed, you stand, then, beholding through the eye of God all the pains of the world. Then stop to realize that the true meaning behind the monadic expression of yourselves, each one, is the star of your own manifestation of the universal Light, eternally lovely.
The Star of your Being
The star of your being—the star of the nativity of your being—this is the star of initiation that opens unto you a new world full of hope and the drama that is unfolded as the curtain of the universe swings wide and reveals to you those white wings of hope that will bear you high and in the bearing will release to you unprecedented power to overcome all things and stand in the temple of the living God as one who is devoted to His purposes upon earth!
“As Above, so below.” The Hermetic axiom has well established itself not only in the Egyptian civilization, but throughout all of those civilizations that manifested in the Fertile Crescent and were then carried throughout the earth by the command of the Christ: Go ye into all the world and preach the gospel unto every creature! All creatures great and small were able to summon those concepts of divine hope and delight that are the summum bonum of each man’s being that will summon for him newness of life and newness of hope.
Will ye this night, then, not by the will of man—not by the established will of man—but by the will of God as part and parcel of your initiatory experiences, establish yourself in the will and the love of God to be an overcomer and a pillar in the temple of God?
Do you realize the wondrous manifestation of the light of the nativity of Bethlehem’s star shining now two thousand years hence? Will you, then, frame yourselves as that child placed within the manger of God’s heart and summon the will of God to shine two thousand years hence into the future? Will you regard your life as a sacred trust of infinite capacity, infinite joy, and infinite doing?—I AM the will of God in action here!
Will you see what the power and passion of universal love harnessed to the divine will can produce of a miracle sense within your minds, within your beings, within your bodies, within your life and the chambers of the lives of all mankind? Will you understand that there is hope for the world, that the world can be changed, that the darkness can be extinguished, that the darkness can be burned, that out of the Word—the living Word by which even the earth itself may be caused to tremble—mankind may understand the natural expression of the Spirit of God and the overcoming power that shall reach out from all hearts to all hearts as an activity of cosmic love and cosmic will?
Thus do ministering angels come to you this night. For as I am speaking to you, what might almost be conceived of as a Magellanic Cloud is appearing in the consciousness of many. And although it comes from afar, it shall draw nigh to you throughout this class and shall establish in you a concept of your cosmic initiations to come.
