Kuthumi: The Still Small Voice
Every lifestream on the path sooner or later comes to a certain point where he begins to turn to the still
small voice within the heart. At first the individual begins to rely on intuition, then on inspiration and later still upon
that conscious contact which precedes self-conscious mastery, the attainment of which constitutes his divine freedom from
all human concepts and all human form.
This is the most difficult point upon the spiritual path and I ask that when you come to the place where you
enter into the heart of the silence where you commune with your own God-Self that you be extremely wise, alert and careful
of the response that you will receive first of all from your own bodies, because you are a complex mechanism, a sevenfold
being. Now whereas the glory of your electronic body, your causal body and your Holy Christ Self can never lead you astray,
your lower bodies have voice, consciousness and intelligence of their own, and these voices, this consciousness and this intelligence
within them endeavors often to serve its own selfish ends thru you.
One of the chief requirements for spiritual mastery is discrimination. Call to Me if you wish, to My beloved
Lord Maitreya or to the great Lord Buddha for that discrimination wherein you may recognize the voice of the silence. Know
always that the prompting which builds up the personality, that which gives aggrandizement to the human ego is not the still
small voice of the Presence but rather the etheric rumblings of your own past experiences, the emotional desires of your feeling
world or mental concepts and precepts from your past lives.
Remember you have sat in the past before many teachers who have given forth both truth and fallacy and into
your mental and emotional bodies and your etheric consciousness are builded those concepts, some of them solidified and petrified
and lying dormant within them for centuries. As the flame begins to surge thru you, these concepts are revivified and come
forth, and you must recognize them for what they are, not necessarily the voice of truth! As you proceed into an understanding
of the voice of the silence know that that which makes you humble, that which makes you loving, that which makes you pure,
that which makes you harmonious is of God. The feelings that stir within your heart that desire to make of this star an orb
of light, to relieve the burden of your fellowmen, to raise those in pain and distress into understanding and harmony, that
is of light. That which decreases the personality and increases the power of Christ, that is of God!
