Good evening, lovely ladies & gracious gentlemen. Happy indeed it is for those of us who may place our feet firmly on the bridge of light & know that as we proceed into your presence, it will not be swept from under us thru lack of faith or thru prejudice but we may build into our design the services that we choose to render.

Mankind has at rare intervals stretched forth a hand of friendship, cautiously opened the door of his consciousness of the Presence or to the Hierarchy & if the association is pleasing to the ego, may give us the questionable pleasure of hearkening to our words. More often than not however in the bringing forth of our light there was not enough personal comfort in the association to please aught but the few willing to stand the thrust for a purpose & upon these few have we depended for the continuity of consciousness by which the plan, design & hope of heaven might be sown into the world of thought, nourished by whatever voluntary energies could be coaxed from the keeping of a reluctant self, brought to harvest & offered to the cosmic law as a reason for sustaining a recalcitrant humanity on a groaning Earth as a part of our beautiful & shining solar system.

If you could have seen the pleas, the pledges, the arguments presented to the Lords of Karma year after year, century after century by the Brothers in an endeavor to secure mercy or an added allotment of time to awaken some members of the race to their responsibility, you would know the love divine that is in the hearts of those who serve. If you could have seen the harvest of each retreat which has been offered at the great council by the Brotherhood, you would realize that the endeavors & the manifestations of the past year were truly magnificent & you would understand the gratitude in the hearts of those of us who live in the belief that the light within your hearts can be encouraged & developed into a flame. We are grateful for your service to us, for your interest & confidence in us & for making your own lifespan part of this bridge which I offered to Hierarchy as a means by which they might enter the world of men.

In the course of the past year you have proceeded across bridges of one kind or another. You have availed yourselves of the energies of some other part of life which provided such a means of safe convoy for your feet. You have often trusted too well in the workmanship of human beings & more than once have been catapulted into the roaring torrent by reason of such trust.

It is no wonder that the mankind of Earth are wary & cautious & yet despite the pictures that the etheric records have shown, we have been able to coax you forth again over the bridge of life & you have grasped our hands in friendship.

I have offered mankind this bridge. I have offered it to the host of heaven, & between you & me I wonder why either group would ever find it secure enough to reach the further shore. With a prayer in my heart & hope in my spirit I gave of my life. Grateful I AM that it has sustained the weight of the people & it has also sustained the great & magnificent personages who have honored us by using it to give to you their word, the feeling of their reality, their joys, their fears, their doubts, their trials, their victories & the sweet experiences by which they gained their own freedom.

The endeavor of Lord Maitreya has been to bring to the student body a realization that every being who has ever trod the path to victory has had the same life experiences as your sweet & earnest selves. He has asked each one to convey to you his or her own feeling as they passed along the way of Earth in order that you may accept them as men & women & in that acceptance know the sweet association of friendship rather than the concept wherein the perfected being is vested with cosmic powers but separated from the evolving consciousness by awe.

Before each Master Presence is invited to a participation in the unfoldment of the divine plan to the consciousness of the student of life Lord Maitreya always gives each one the same instructions, & if you will look over the pattern of the past year you will see that the homely experiences of the daily living of the masters while on the earth plane has been their opening to the cosmic instruction on the law.

We have thought much about the presentation of the words of the Brotherhood. We have sat many an evening in Ceylon & counseled together as to how best we may reach the hearts of men. The hearts of men have been reached by occult literature & other metaphysical reading but it is the deep stirring of the heart by love, by the intimate confidences from within our own hearts that raises the outer self into the comradeship which is essential to our cooperative endeavor on behalf of our planet.

Witness the great Christian religion wherein the Master Jesus has held the position of God, & you will see that although the devotions & adorations have lifted the soul, except in very rare instances the devotee did not become the fullness of his Presence & his consciousness in action. & it is our desire & endeavor now to send every man back into his own heart wherein he may develop from within himself the mastery of energy & find us as fellow-workers, pilgrims upon the path, counselors, true, but no less friends & brothers.

You are a brave lot for you have chosen to apply to the universal First Cause for primal life, every electron of which is charged with the fire of the Sun itself, & the flowing stream of electronic light that I witness passing thru your inner bodies & your flesh forms tonight is the fire of creation. Someday each one of you will learn to master that fire & thru it fulfill the divine plan of your own great lifestream. We have all vowed to assist you!

I represent the will of God & my service & activity in the inner spheres is a delight indeed for every master, angel, deva, man & elemental in those inner spheres is in complete accord with that will & welcomes every opportunity to learn what new design is coming forth from the Silent Watcher in the 24-hour periord, rushing to meet that will & joyously sending their life-energy into the fulfilling & externalizing of it. But in the world of form I, representing the will of God, AM the least invited even by the most advanced of students because in the coming of the will of God there is no compromise with the human self, there is no compromise with human conditions, there is no compromise with personality.

I must give that will to all who stand innocently before me, hopefully raising the cup of their consciousness & timidly invoking that will & yet always holding back just a little. But I can hold nothing back when I AM called into action. I live but to externalize that will & as the water runs impersonally thru the channel that is opened to it so does my conscious self rush to & thru the lifestreams who in the silence of their own chambers make the great surrender, a surrender of self & pride & purpose & who say not without deep subjugation, "Thy will be done."

Beloved friends, in that hour when you invoke the sacred fire of God's will & I the servant of that fire respond, I can but promise that after the surrender is accepted, you will find that the will of God for you is much more harmonious & comfortable than that which your fondest dreams could depict as your own human will for yourself.

Truth & the will of God always go hand in hand. This is our year. It is to be a year of great light & yet a year of great discipline for those who have stepped forth upon the path. In friendship may I say that I will soften as much as it is possible according to my nature the flow of those energies into your experiences.

Sanat Kumara must be released! His work is well done. His love even the masters themselves can scarcely comprehend, nor his patience when he has looked upon the sleeping race, all potential lightbearers, choosing to slumber on while he gives his maximum radiation to keep Earth which is their home in the chain not for a century or two but for millions of years! Earth is a small revolving orb which in this galaxy is not more than a speck of dust & whose light if snuffed out would scarcely make a flicker in the radiance of the whole. Yet it is the planetary home of ten billion lifestreams who could only find mastery if Earth were sustained as their cradle.

Each one of you when you wear your immortal garments, when you have accepted the invitation of your God-Presence, & when you stand God-free in blazing light will stand there only because Sanat Kumara believed enough in your light & life to do for you what you should have done for yourself for countless eons of time. If he had not, the evolution would have passed into the second death & as an individual consciousness you would have been no more. Is that not a debt to be paid best by becoming wherever you are a focus for the expansion of the light thru every soul you contact?

You are paying for your own life in your service to him. You are paying for your immortality all down thru the eons of time that have not yet been unfurled when you will have being because of his love. Every sunrise you see, every flower that gives of its perfume, every friend & loved one that warms your heart you enjoy because you have life, which is the gift of his patience & his service in sustaining it.

Think about it! Someone has loved the universe enough, someone has loved you enough to meet your obligations & wipe them off before the Karmic Board year after year, embodiment after embodiment & century after century. You know the gratitude you feel in the world of form when an individual will meet your obligation & relieve you of that pressure just once!

Lemuria was an age of tremendous illumination & perfection. In Atlantis thousands of lifestreams were able to emit light, to precipitate, to levitate. Angels & masters walked visibly by the side of unascended beings. Sanat Kumara, full of hope, saw the close of his exile. He was thinking of Venus, his heart burning with love for his home, the sacred fire visible upon the altars. here on Earth sickness, death & desolation were wiped out. Folding his garments about him he was ready to let the dust of Earth fall from his Presence. Then back thru the centuries fell the race! Back into exile came Sanat Kumara!

What consciousness would stand with the fall of every golden age before the Karmic Board & say, "I renew my vow, I shall remain. They will yet arise. They will yet emit light!"?

& the Karmic Board more than once counseled him to linger no longer, that the mercy of the law had exhausted itself, that divine justice would no longer accept a sacrifice of such tremendous proportions, of such tremendous love. I have stood there, you have stood there as that great dignified Lord of Life quietly & firmly said, "I shall remain." & the light of Venus dimmed in his eye & the thoughts of home receded from his sweet consciousness lest the very pull of that love would weaken his resolve.

I have stood on Venus by the side of Sanat Kumara's beloved & saw her filled with increasing hope as the hour of his exile neared completion, & then I have seen her turn & walk back into the City of the Sun with her shoulders squared, her eyes facing the heart of the Presence. For another million years her loved one would be doing the work of others.

That, my children, is love. that is what fires me with enthusiasm, with determination to find among the sons & daughters of men some who would love as Venus has. That is the inspiration that brought me to the side of St. Germain when he stood among the ruins of his last endeavor. That is the fire that took me into the very Presence of Helios & Vesta themselves & asked for an opportunity to reach those chelas who had served with me in many a tight corner thru the ages. That is the fire that beat within my heart as I stood before the great Maha Sahib & in the face of his great wisdom made me say, "I believe I can find men & women to hold this Bridge, to fan the dying embers of truth, to stir the souls of men & to set these God-beings free."

Justice & right must prevail. Men & women have benefited by the patience & love of this God-being & yet refuse to serve when they know what he has done! This is a crusade, my dear ones, in which my spirit, my soul, the fire of my being is vested, & before I AM thru there will not be one incoming soul who will not kneel before his light. I asked the Lords of Karma to withhold a physical body from any lifestream who is to come thru the gates of birth until that soul agrees to use its energies to emit the light which sets that great being free. This is a dispensation that has not yet been granted.

I AM a man of determination & purpose. It is the will of God that the men & women of Earth give forth the light to make this star shine. At inner levels it is a disgrace to look upon the sweet Earth, to hear it groan & cry & squeak upon its axis & to witness the effluvia from the hearts of men that the blessed elementals are forced to clean. Come forth now, my friends, & let us be about our Father's business. I thank you, & good night! MORYA

dictated to G. I.

It is indeed a pleasure & a privilege for me to be allowed to grasp your hands thru the veil & I AM especially grateful to you for the many lifetimes you have dedicated yourselves to the service of the light. It is not only in this short span of your existence that you have chosen to step forth from the masses to face the ridicule of the outer mind & to blend the voluntary energies of your beings to setting God-life free. Age after age have your names been written in the Book of Eternal Life. Can you feel then the gratitude of Hierarchy for that service? I think you can!

I bow before your light & I carry within the compass of my Presence the blessings of Sanat Kumara in whose name you have chosen to present to the consciousness of people the reality of Hierarchy without whom this Earth would long since have passed into oblivion, the electrons which compose it returned to the universe & the souls depending upon it for existence snuffed out like candles before the wind.

A magnificent city your Havana! Have you thought why certain places on the face of this Earth attract many souls around them while other places equally desirable perhaps do not grow into cities? It is because of past momentums during which incarnate lifestreams facing God drew forth powerful foci of life-energy in those places in prayer, in devotion, in service, & created out of that unformed life essence a rhythmic pulsation of the sacred fire which has within itself a mystic power that draws the souls of men as flame draws moth so that bathed within that sacred fire the nourished spiritual centers of the soul may more quickly externalize God-mastery.

During the period of the great Atlantean culture the might Archangel Zadkiel focused the fire of invocation here within the aura of your present city, & the priests & priestesses of this order, drawing forth that sacred fire, were able to use the power of divine alchemy to change the quality of life-energy from shadow into light, from disease into harmony & from depression into happiness. You who have returned to this island were among that Brotherhood & in the momentum which is yours you have chosen to serve the souls of this magnificent metropolis.

The forcefield created by your cooperative endeavors gave the primal impetus for my new endeavor. As the charge of energy in a battery magnetizes the machinery, so does the momentum of energy drawn by a cooperative group of chelas build thru the years until it can be used by a member of Hierarchy to introduce a new cause or endeavor by which we might drive the wedge of the divine will & pattern of the universe into the consciousness of men.

Among all the qualities of the masters of wisdom, you will find gratitude high, both on lips & in hearts, for we live but to serve & we can serve only where we are accepted. How can a Hierachy direct the progress of a race unless they can reach the consciousness & outer minds of lifestreams who are in distress? Unless there is a bridge there is no link, no connection over which our design, our counsel, our words, our current endeavors may reach the intellect of the personal self.

What good purpose could be served in the twentieth century when new conditions have arisen from the fertile field of maya by repeating words I spoke one hundred years ago? If a child is crossing a street & a truck bears down upon him that is a current crisis that requires the energies of the present moment if one is to avert a tragedy. It would be to no purpose for the chela to rush into the house & read the Upanishads to find out what he is expected to do in the emergency. In other words current activities require current emergency methos & not the accumulated wisdom of the past.

Two thousand years have passed since Master Jesus was given opportunity to speak. The words he said then fell on deaf ears for the most part. The Piscean cycle was born & has almost closed, & only now mankind chooses to give freedom to the word pertinent to the beginning of that cycle. The nineteenth century has come & gone. Truly we spoke freely on the law then & those words are immortal. But the twentieth century presents its own emergencies, it own opportunities, & the counsel of 100 years ago is not pertinent to the endeavor which engages the energies of the Brotherhood in this hour.

It was to bridge this gap, to cross the chasm between now & then that I applied for a dispensation, an opportunity by whick I might endeavor to convince some old heart friends that we are capable of speech, capable of God-intelligence & that we do not rest upon our crowns, fulfilling a karma of merit to the tune of a celestial harvest while your planet stands at the end of its hour. Vain indeed would be our service to life if we were not abreast of the cosmic endeavor to create of this planet a light star.

Every hundred years within the two-thousand year cycle do the great Lords of Karma give a dispensation of energy to the spiritual Hierarchy, & Sanat Kumara, Lord Maitreya & the Maha Chohan in council decide how best to invest that energy. They look upon the souls of men, they look upon Earth conditions, they face the requirements of cosmic law & then together they design some cause of merit & present it to the entire Brotherhood. Opportunity is assigned to the various members of the Brotherhood & these members then call about themselves chelas like yourselves. They show them the pattern & plan & they ask the chelas if they wish to cooperate to bring that plan to fulfillment in the world of form. You have sat in many such councils. You have thrilled with enthusiasm at the eloquence of the God-free as they spoke of the mission of Gautama Buddha & of Jesus & of our later spiritual pioneers.

At inner levels it all seems so easy. There is no reluctant flesh, no clouded mind, no resistances of many selves, only the joy, the Christ, the gifts to be given to the world freely. It is easy to volunteer before incarnation takes place & for that reason the great Initiator himself carefully examines each volunteer before he is given opportunity to serve the Brothers in the world of form, for enthusiasm & zeal are not akin to constancy & hundreds & thousands of centuries of rhythmic selfless service.

You have heard of the initiation of beloved Mother Mary when she offered to bring forth the body of Master Jesus. She stood for three hours before Lord Maitreya trying to hold the pattern of the form of Helios & the great cosmic winds blew upon that pattern. They blew inside her mind & her feelings, endeavoring to take away her concentration, & every force in the atmosphere around her attempted to steal the attention of her senses which in that instant might have released the thoughtform & she then would have been removed from the list of possible candidates. Then, receiving the benediction of Lord Maitreya, she came to Earth & had to reenact thru all the years of Jesus' life & ministry that same test of holding the God-concept against the appearance of the world of form. The three hours at the foot of Calvary were no more intense & terrible than the hours spent in the proving of her worth.

And when Jesus was come to maturity & could hold that concept for himself, he had eyes that were forced to look upon leprous bodies & at all forms of decay, all of which ould have registered on his pure image were it not for that guard of Mary's love that constantly cut away, cut away, cut away from his attention & senses the appearance world & helped him to magnify the image of the Father which he was to externalize in the flesh.

Joseph too was chosen to be an outer pattern of the Father of Light so that Jesus, looking upon him, might outpicture in his own form the gracious beauty of Jeseph until he had matured enough to remember his mission & anchor his own thought & feeling self in a picture of the divine image of God which was to externalize in order to be victorious in his accomplishment.

You will excuse my digression from the main point which is the release of this energy in each one-hundred year cycle. From the year 1400 until the beginning of the seventeenth century this impersonal energy was given primarily to St. Germain to bring forth a new land or to bring remembrance of a new land to the minds of the people of Europe & to encourage the selfless & brave spirits to forge ahead & in this new land create a cradle in which the spiritual endeavor which is to flourish in the ceremonial age & ray could be brought into being.

You will see that the vital energies that flowed thru Colombus & the other explorers were greater than those of their own human selves. They were ordinary men, women & children who against all reason & human judgment left home & security to face an unknown course, a chartless sea, to carve for themselves a nation out of a wilderness prompted by an intangible quality called the love of freedom. Think of it, think of it a moment, you within this room, & you will see that it was a pressure greater than the human self that carried them like a cosmic wind from comfort to privation. Who among you at this hour with just the clothing on your back would walk out that door leaving home, security & family to follow the ephemeral heaven of some human being bound in his own karma who represented it as a possibility & not a fact? Men of destiny are always swept by the cosmic mind of the Holy Spirit in spite of themselves. It has ever been thus.

At the beginning of the nineteenth century after the establishment of a focus in this Western hemisphere our beloved Lord Maitreya called the group of Chohan before him & said, "Gentlemen, it is now time that we bring a knowledge of Hierarchy to the minds of men. It is now time that the masters who have concentrated their attention in the East shall enter the occidental consciousness." Then in that pleasant, persuasive, eloquent & magnificent manner of his he outlined what you know as Theosophy. He told us how certain lifestreams might incarnate & then those of us who were close to these people could step thru the veil & the incarnate chelas open the door to an understanding of our Presence, our particular service & our willingness & desire to cooperate with anyone who would accept our friendship, our questionable intelligence & our capacity for counsel, not for personal credit or for the karma of merit that would result from their trust in us.

You sat in that council. I called you there. Why? Because for many ages in & out of body we have built an affinity & I felt that within yourselves you could not deny me when you heard my name, that when you felt the pressure of my feeling you would know the reality of myself.

Blavatsky was there, Leadbeater, Judge & Sinnet, all these names you know so well & many more, many more perhaps better qualified than the crude rough woman who stood forth & said, "Masters, I will go & be that wedge." Crude of body & mind, spirit, soul & self she was. & for all the finer, more delicate instruments who did not volunteer we were glad to accept those who did because as you know in the service of the Brotherhood we are not permitted to use any drastic measures. to use a phrase of your military service, we cannot say, "Here, you shall represent me." We can but say, "Could you represent me?" Among many thousands of qualified lifestreams perhaps ten are willing to volunteer & out of that ten maybe two are fully qualified & then it is a shifting & a sorting & a praying & a hoping until we have prepared perhaps one soul whose sole will & purpose is centered in our cause, & on that one our hope depends.

Thus was the initial endeavor of Theosophy born. The Lords of Karma gave to us a certain amount of energy to use which the lifestream had not earned, & so Kuthumi & myself & the beloved Maha Sahib endeavored to use that energy to the best advantage. We offered it then to Blavatsky & the founders to supplement their own faith & wisdom. Many is the night we sat & talked about how to confirm her appointment, you might say, the powers of precipitation & phenomena, everything to please the senses, everything to convince the reluctant consciousness of the outer man, & we spent a great store of our allotted energy in literally turning hand-springs in an endeavor to secure the faith & cooperation of those whom we lived to serve.

Hundreds of letters were written, tons of logical records went into our correspondence, & out of it all we had at least a workable knowledge of the law & of Hierarchy available for those members of the race who chose from time to time to honor us by opening the pages of our books & examining the fruits of our labors--& so that cycle closed.

The twentieth century dawned & again the council of Lord Maitreya met. Again the energies were offered to assist mankind to a workable knowledge of the law & Hierarchy. This time we decided that it would not be phenomena but radiation & feeling that would secure for us brothers & sisters willing to be ourselves in the world of form, & I have to the best of my ability stood behind the Master St. Germain in his endeavors to bring an understanding of the law to the people.

We are pleased & blessed because in this century not only was the knowledge of the law available but the method by which the students could contribute their energies to the amount allowed us by the Karmic Board has given us more to work with. It is an unalterable fact, dear hearts, that for every breath you release from your body you receive another breath into your lungs. The instant that you refuse to give your breath to the universe, seeking to hold it within your body, you being the destruction of your form & very soon death would ensue. In the same manner the energy released by the chela in impersonal service to life brings a return of energy from above in added knowledge, in added understanding, in a momentum of healing, in a momentum of supply, but if the energy given by us in instruction is not used for some humanitarian purpose & we were to release more, the lifestream would eventually die of spiritual surfeit in the same manner that the body would die of condensed breath.

If I stand before the Karmic Board & offer to use my life energy to talk to you, the first thing the Karmic Board would ask is, "What benefit will the investment of your counsel bring to the universe? Your light is too valuable to be given for the amusement of mankind, & if you invest in in human beings & there is no interest in your investment you make karma for them by reason of their indolence & indifference."

Ha! Do you not think that I have not sat & thought plenty before I have given of my light to the people of Earth? Do not think that I have not watched that light flow carrying the words of my brothers without praying to the God who made us all that someone on Earth would weave out of it a blessing, that we may not stand before that impassive tribunal, the Karmic Board, & hear them say, "Brothers, your zeal has outweighed your wisdom." That has happened to me more than once, for I AM a fiery soul with a fiery faith in men, & yet without that fiath your sorrowful planet could not be sustained in our shining solar system. I shall not tax your patience by speaking in detail on the subject of Sanat Kumara's cause, for it is a subject that stirs my soul.

There would be no Earth, no platform for your feet, no air to breathe, no loved ones to enrich your personal orbit if one being had not sacrificed himself for millions of years, precious hearts, to do for you & mankind what you should be doing for yourselves. Remaining harmonious enough so that the energy from your Presence would pour out light instead of shadows does not seem such a big order. It is the decree of the universe that every planet emit light. Look at your stars at night. Look at the entire galaxy, all obedient to the universal law except Earth. Of course you cannot look at the Earth because you are too close to get a perspective of it but I can & I AM ashamed that I AM so long a member of Hierarchy & should still have to give my energies to the awakening of Earth from the shadows.

For millions of years Sanat Kumara has emitted light so that this planet might be sustained in the system while mankind en masse has played in the shadows. Time & time again the great Karmic Board has called him & said, "Great Lord of Life, do you not wish to go home?" & time & time again he has answered, "No, I shall remain." Now the great cosmic law has issued the fiat that HE SHALL BE RETURNED TO VENUS, & that is the reason for our entire endeavor to reach more souls who are willing to contribute light, to be willing to be lightbearers & are willing to apply the torch of flame to the smoldering embers in the consciousness of the masses & to make this star a blazing planet of freedom in the firmament.

To this end have we forsworn nirvana. (On Oct 1, 1952 Morya dictated to G. lnnocente: "The beloved brother Jesus was born without sin or karmic limitations & lived in a coat of flesh as a voluntary servant of the cosmic law. In like manner Kuthumi & my own humble self, coming from a star other than Earth, voluntarily submitted to karmic law in order to assist the evolution of mankind & incarnated again & again to offer the support of our life energies to the various ages. In this recurrent visitation to Earth we accumulated an individual karmic debt which we had to wipe out by the conscious use of our own energies in much the same manner as you are being taught by beloved St. Germain. During our embodiments as the wise men at the time of Jesus' ministry our karmic debt was balanced & our incarnations since then have been wholly of a voluntary nature.") To this end do I stand in the heart of the will of God. May some among you give ear to my prayer, some among you remember your vow, some among you be faithful to it until the end when you shall receive on your shoulders the white garment of immortality, & I holding your hand might say, "Come, son or daughter of heaven, I welcome you home." I bless you & I thank you. EL MORYA
