Down through the ages poets and troubadours, inspired by the ideals of Camelot,
have drawn forth the spirit and vision of our Beloved Morya embodied as King Arthur. These immortal lines from the musical
Camelot, "Think back on all the days that you remember…Don't let it be forgot…" capture the Master’s
timeless fiery zeal, reminding us to persevere in our effort to realize here and now the Vision which our God Self holds for
us. It's time now - and past time - to relax those preoccupations with outer world concerns which tend to monopolize even
our spiritual lives so completely. For unless we guard against it, the incessant drone of worldly cares or the fixations on
the unrealities of the astral plane will spin a cocoon of forgetfulness around our heart and numb its native sensitivity to
the keynote of true Ascended Master Light.
Let no man, no woman, no unpleasant memory of the past, no so-called Apocalypse,
nor present worldly circumstance take your Crown! Instead, release your own lively Heart to whisper to you of its sweet divine
aspirations, which like tender green shoots, have never ceased to press upward through the harshness of the world. Be alive
to the wonder and magic of your own Heart Flame, pulsing with the outpouring of your own individual God Presence.
Robert Frost once said something to the effect that, "Home is where, when you
go there, they have to take you in because you're family." Are not all avowed sons and daughters of Sanat Kumara also
brothers and sisters of one another? Are we not then one family, born of the same Father-Mother God? Permit us to say, "Welcome
home!" Please know that our love reaches out to you with all the fullness of the Comfort Flame of the Maha Chohan wherever you may be. Let us determine not to be separated, nor content ourselves with strife and
struggle, when the joys of fellowship and communion are still to be had for the asking. Through bonds of genuine fraternity
and good will that are the hallmark of the Brotherhood, we have been and shall remain devoted to one another’s Victory.
Torch Bearers of The Temple are devotees like you. There is a place for you in
our circle of fellowship, where you will find once again a haven of peace and safety, where you will find the Freedom to know
yourself, not as an imperfect work in progress but as your God Presence-In-Action. We want nothing more than to hold you steadfast
within the warmth and radiance of Ascended Master Light. We can be such a spiritual family to one another if you will have
the boldness to contact us, to join us for one of the upcoming quarterly conferences and bask in the Living Presence of the
Ascended Masters as you have never known them.
The best and brightest years of your spiritual life still lay ahead of you. This
message bears repeating. If we seem to belabor this point, it's only because in talking with so many of you in person over
the past several years, we have observed the same patterns far too often. Doubtless every one of us could name any number
of lifelong devotees of the Masters who for years and often decades sacrificed everything, who nevertheless have felt a compelling
need to disassociate themselves from anything having to do with Ascended Master Activities, with the Teachings or indeed any
form of organized religion.
This can happen so gradually that we are scarcely aware of the process until one
day we wake up bereft of that living Faith which forges and sustains our personal conscious contact with Hierarchy. One by
one, the buffeting of such experiences take their toll. A few even begin to despair if they can ever discern Truth for themselves
and do nothing lest they make a mistake.
While this process is understandable from the human standpoint, it is tragic and
so unnecessary. You need not labor under such burden. The pure, original Ascended Master Teachings released by Saint Germain
early in the 20th century were emphatic, constantly drawing our attention back to Perfection and to the paramount
necessity of sustaining an unbroken communion with our own Individual Mighty I AM Presence. We can tell you emphatically
that Saint Germain has no patience for the age old dualities of man as a wayward soul on earth and God as an unreachable star
in heaven. He reminds us that he settled that question once and for all decades ago. From this day forward you have his permission
to esteem yourself as the outer expression of your I AM Presence in this world of form.
For example, in the first Chart of the Presence, Saint Germain chose not to illustrate
the Holy Christ Self, not because the teachings of the Christ Self were not fully developed (for indeed they were),
but so that every time we looked at the Chart, we would automatically be reminded of just how lawful and direct is our immediate
access to that very God Presence. The fact is that in order to properly do its job, our Holy Christ Self needs us to put our
attention on the Perfection of our Electronic Body, which is the celestial body temple of our only real and true identity!
The anchor point of that God Presence is the Immortal, Victorious, Threefold Flame of Life which the Presence maintains on
the altar of the Heart. Through our attention on the Electronic Body, the daily use of the Violet Flame and constant harmony
in the feeling world, we can sustain that priceless Thread of Contact which invites our Holy Christ Self to descend
and envelop our every waking moment with its own great Radiance. Thus we are raised step by step into ever greater attunement,
oneness and loving cooperation with our one true God Identity.
Saint Germain paid a dear price in order to give us this permission: TO ACCEPT
ONCE AND FOR ALL, AND DESPITE ALL OUTER APPEARANCES TO THE CONTRARY, THAT WE ARE ALREADY, HERE AND NOW, FIRSTBORN SONS AND
DAUGHTERS OF GOD WORKING OUT OUR FINAL DESTINY ON THIS PLANET AND WE MUST ACT THE PART! This is no small matter, because without
such encouragement and the weight of his divine Authority, the world's condemnation would continue to overpower the Heart’s
innate sense of dignity and worth as Firstborn of God. Beloved Saint Germain desires that we awaken to the wonderful news
that as we scrupulously follow this training and keep our attention riveted on the Perfection of our Source, then we are God-in-Action,
and our Christ Self becomes One with us in the process. This is the way Adepts are made.
We in The Temple of The Presence choose to recapture this original Keynote of
Saint Germain's release and preserve it as the greatest Treasure of the Twentieth Century. We are determined to put this simple,
powerful discipline into practice as we relate to the Activity and to one another. We share a glorious vision of a mounting
renaissance that will emblazon His Words upon our Hearts, minds and memory, lest we forget the high calling such words as
"My Beloved Students, do you not see how much easier, how much more joyous
it is to rise above all human, earthly limitations….Each one of you can learn to do this much sooner than you dare to
imagine in the outer activity of your mind. The time required to attain This Mastery is tremendously shortened, when the Individual
comes to the understanding that his physical body is the Temple of the Mighty I AM Presence, the GOD of the Universe;
and the very Life Energy which moves his body across the floor, is the Most High, Living God! This is the Christ, the Only
Begotten Son -- "God-in-Action."
"However, I find many who get tremendous results by thinking
of It as the Ascended Master Within; or the 'Mighty I AM Presence' to whom they can talk. This Presence is a Glorious Blazing
Light. You can see Its Visible, Tangible Presence, resting a short distance above your physical body. You can speak to It,
and receive Its Definite Answer, Perfect Direction, and Wondrous Revelation."
The Magic Presence
This simple, powerful message has been drowned out by a flood of information best
described as the "Tree of the Knowledge of good and evil." Perhaps now you can better appreciate why Beloved El Morya
once again found it necessary to petition the Lords of Karma for Dispensations to sponsor another set of Twin Flames as the
anointed Messengers for the Great White Brotherhood. Master Morya has sent us forth to found this Ascended Master Activity
— The Temple of The Presence. He intends that it shall remain pledged to the greatest purity and highest principles
of the Brotherhood. Won't you join us in raising up a sacred Altar where we can worship God, the Mighty I AM Presence, and
where we can commune with His Ascended Sons and Daughters?
For those who have experienced what it's like to stand in the Radiation of the
Ascended Masters, surely you can recall the feeling of the Sacred Fire as Electronic Light, expanding through the cells of
your flesh body and accelerating that body, step by step toward the Ascension Current. Can you conceive of going through the
balance of this lifetime never again to bask in that Living Fire?
The Masters are determined that The Temple shall become a home away from home
for you, a consecrated place of Peace, far from the press of the world’s restless energies. We shall consecrate many
Altar Groups and Temples where we can join together in prayer, decrees, study and meditation. The foundation of our Faith
is grounded in the Sacred Teachings released by the Ascended Masters through all of their true Messengers in this century,
as well as their Dictations and Discourses delivered through ourselves as Messengers. We also intend to establish a climate
of receptivity on the part of The Temple for the recognition of those whom the Cosmic Councils may send forth anointed as
future Messengers when our service is completed. The framework for this was outlined at our recent conclave, "Limitless Light
! Abundant Life !"
We reaffirm our intent to work for precisely the same goals to which we dedicated
our lives years ago — that the Lightbearers of the world may know the worth of their own true being and the reality
of their own indwelling Divine Presence and win their Freedom through the Ascension.
The first revelation of Saint Germain in this century was Unveiled Mysteries.
Surely it was by design that in the first few pages of this first book Saint Germain chose to emphasize the proper image we
should hold about ourselves:
"It is very important to realize fully that God's intent for every one of His
children is abundance of every good and perfect thing. He created Perfection and endowed His children with exactly the same
power. They can create and maintain Perfection also, and express God Dominion over the Earth and all that is therein. Mankind
was originally created in the Image and Likeness of God. The only reason all do not manifest Dominion is because they do not
use their Divine Authority -- that with which each individual is endowed, and by which he is intended to govern his world.
Thus, they are not obeying the Law of Love by pouring out Peace and blessing to all creation.
"This comes about through their failure to accept and acknowledge themselves as
Temples of the Most High Living God, and to hold this acknowledgment with eternal recognition."
We intend to take the Master at His Word, to put His discipline of Perfection
in the Presence to the test and accept that we are "God-in-Action" right here and now! In honor of Saint Germain, the Brotherhood
has christened this Activity, The Temple of The Presence. This name will serve as a constant reminder to esteem ourselves
- and one another - as that living Temple. It will also proclaim to the world that our places of study and worship are indeed
Sacred, since the Living Presence dwells within the God Flame anchored and sustained upon the Altar by Lord Gautama.
You may ask as we have, "Why? Why must we start over from the beginning yet
again?" Morya answers with a question of his own, "WHY INDEED?" We accept his Wisdom and move on with never a backward
To accomplish this work we are going to need musicians, artists and artisans of
all persuasions, teachers, technicians and others with skills too numerous to mention. We recognize the enormity of the task.
Many of us will choose to devote all our time and energy to this cause in order to meet the needs of the mounting numbers
of Lifestreams discovering The Temple. It is true that we need the encouragement of your enthusiastic support. Please remember
us with your prayers and best wishes, that this fledgling Activity can serve as Hierarchy intends.
How shall we find the time or the zeal for such monumental tasks? Most of us still
have to work hard to provide even a modest lifestyle for our families. This is certainly a lawful consideration and as it
should be. Nevertheless we recognize that unless we once and for all master outer circumstance, the tragic-comic opera that
is human life on this planet goes round and round, lifetime, after lifetime, after lifetime.
While it is certainly possible to postpone the dedication and commitment to the
Path of the Ascension, we can rest assured that in whatever life we do decide to take up that Path in earnest, a similar set
of circumstances and responsibilities are sure to arise and challenge our every effort, always demanding our full attention
for themselves. In other words, there will never be a convenient time to win your Victory.
How then shall we allocate our commitment between the Path and those other honorable
responsibilities that come our way? We shall find a way to accomplish both! How can we possibly do justice to both? I AM
the Way. We shall organize a regular program of Healing and Supply Decrees on behalf of ourselves and Lightbearers everywhere.
We shall join our voices as One and pray for that Divine Abundance that will give us the Freedom to fulfill our obligations
and to worship God and balance our karma through world service. As we lovingly pray for one another, we will find we are no
longer one against the world. Rather, we are blessed by the multiplication of our group decrees and their further amplification
by the Ascended Masters. (You can send for a bound set of our I AM Adorations, Affirmations and Rhythmic Decrees.)
In his parable of the Wedding Feast, Jesus captured the poignancy of those called
to the Marriage but too distracted to attend. As you know, this parable was nothing less than a metaphor for the Initiations
of the Resurrection and the Ascension, and the Wedding Garment a symbol for the Electronic Body — the body we shall
wear in the Ascended State. Little do we realize how past hurts and discouragements may restrain us from trusting enough to
once again wholeheartedly pursue the Path or the Ascension. Whatever the scars may be, whatever records of fear or pain yet
remain below the level of conscious awareness, we pray that at this very moment the hand of Beloved Jesus will touch those
places and give you complete healing. May His Life, Light, and Love bathe your four lower bodies, anointing them with the
Violet Flame in preparation for your own Resurrection and Ascension.
We today have been invited to the Marriage Feast of the Lamb by the Ascended Masters,
who have lavishly bestowed upon us this greatest of Opportunities. They want us to return Home, after a seemingly endless
pilgrimage upon this earth, wearing the Wedding Garment! They desire to see us among the company of the Immortals wearing
our own Electronic Body, fashioned of Limitless Light! This Form of Light is the body temple of your own Presence, which even
now stands close at hand, Youthful, Perfect, and Complete in every detail!
