El Morya: Guardian Spirits, Oct. 1952
dictated to G. Innocente

Beloved chela:

Many are the inhabitants of this sweet earth and its inner atmosphere who do not belong to its evolution. Some have come in freedom to offer the strength of their lifestreams to the evolving consciousness of the chain and others have been brought from preceding (planetary) chains because they did not evolve quickly enough to attain God-maturity within the allotted cosmic hour. I AM among those who have come from another "star" and although I submitted to the voluntary renunciation of freedom, accepting the recurrent roles of incarnations thru many ages it was a voluntary service to life on My part.

Those intelligent beings like the 30 volunteers from Venus who chose to be the leaven in the loaf thru entering the very substance of earth in bodies of flesh agreed to accept the responsibility of generating karma in each incarnation, willingly devoting themselves to working thru the same restricting forms in which the evolving mankind must function. The self-conscious intelligence need not create destructive karma but it is subject to the same temptations in misuse of the life-energy entrusted to it by the Presence of God as is the least of the children of men. Thus many of the guardians of the race in their voluntary exile have woven individual nets of karmic limitation which bind their free spirits and dim their light even as the karmic chains of the natural inhabitants of this small star have made it so recalcitrant that the Law voted it back into nothingness.

Thus even the guardian spirits from other worlds and other chains have had to go thru the process of ascending out of emotional, mental, moral and spiritual shadows into the light of their own Presence. For them the process of dissolving the self-created karma was relatively easy, but often when the karmic debt was paid fully such liberated spirits renounced nirvana and even the ascension to return again and again to earth to become the stimulation of spiritual endeavors of its people. For example, the beloved Brother Jesus was born without sin or karmic limitation and lived in a coat of flesh as a voluntary servant of the cosmic law. In like manner Kuthumi and My humble Self voluntarily submitted to the karmic law in order to assist the evolution of mankind and incarnated again and 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 the sacred fire in much the same manner as you are being taught to do by the beloved St. Germain thru the use of the flame of mercy and compassion.

During Our embodiments as two of the Wise Men at the time of Jesus' ministry Our karmic debt was balanced and Our incarnations since then have been wholly of a voluntary nature free from karmic creation and reaction. When I finally completed My round of incarnations--having wrought the purpose thru of what did make Me man--I retained the etheric body of an Indian potentate which I used thru the entire association with Helena Blavatsky. Kuthumi served in a similar manner. These vehicles had all the necessary comforting appearances of flesh and became absorbed into the electronic garment in the final ascension of consciousness which took place when the Theosophical outpouring was completed. I trust this will assist you in understanding some of the conflicting statements about Our Presence, Our identity and Our spiritual status.

Any Master Presence may retain one or more of His bodies thru which to function before He lays them down forever. We laid down the flesh as stated above but retained the etheric vehicles for the sake of convenience thru the Theosophical days because as you see it is difficult to contact man thru the high vibrations of the electronic Presence as We must do today. To materialize the Ascended Master Presence is a great shock to the chela until he is very very very well grounded in that peace that truly does surpass the understanding of the mind. Abide always within My heart, children, it is always yours to command! M
