Beloved ones of the light, I greet you tonight in the name of the presence of harmony! It has been my joy & honor & privilege for many years now to carry the master control of harmony wheresoever I choose to move across the face of this Earth, & wheresoever I AM invoked, to assist those beloved lifestreams who show interest in the teaching of men to become a harmonizing presence in themselves, & thru themselves the master control of all circumstances.

Every messenger who comes from the court of the great Sanat Kumara sooner or later must be the controlled power by which energy is channeled into constructive & beautiful form, thru those chelas & devotees who drawn by the radiation of the light choose to live within the periphery of such an one's aura. For, until that accomplishment is woven into the energies of the lifestream, the secrets & powers of the sacred fire that are held within the kingdom of harmony cannot be released in their fullness into the receptive consciousness of the teacher first & thru him imparted to his disciples. So, in a measure does the teacher become responsible for the amount of truth & understanding flowing from the everlasting fount because upon the control & mastery of his own energy does the message & the truth which flow into the lifestreams of the disciples in a movement depend.

Within the heart of those great retreats & sanctuaries which dot the surface of this globe the most exquisite balanced control of energy forms the pattern for daily & hourly living, & were any one of you to consciously within your own physical bodies step within such a holy & sanctified place, your first impression would be one of exquisite peace & relaxation. This accounts for the fact that even in the orthodox world the kingdom of heaven is described as a place of exceeding peace.

In my service to life representing as I do that great embodiment of cosmic harmony whom you have come to know & love as our Lord Maitreya (for pictures of ascended masters such as Maitreya, go to & click on mestres ascensos), it becomes my joyous opportunity whenever given entrance into the consciousness of the devotee of truth to remind the outer self that harmony like mercy & love & compassion is not a negative but a powerful & positive force belonging only to the strong, cultivated thru century after century of self-discipline.

It is often thought that individuals who sleep within the lethargy of inertia are expressing & experiencing harmony, but nothing can be further from the truth. Those messengers who are embodied peace are not only masters of the energy which is their own allotted gift from the source of life, but they are the constant masters of the whirling sea of emotion & thought force of even the physical bodies of those who are around them.

I have come this evening from Ceylon where we all sat with our beloved Maha Sahib & discussed the coming opportunity when the attention of the illumined as well as the aspirants will be focused on the great teacher of all teachers whom you know as Lord Buddha, the beloved Lord Maitreya his assistant, the Brothers of the Golden Robe & my humble self. The beloved Maha Sahib in speaking with us suggested that we emphasize thru this entire thirty-day period that every facet of expression thru the entire seven rays is embodied harmony, whether it is the strong drive of ordered service in which every wheel fits into its proper place, whether it is the harmony which comes from understanding, the harmony which is within beauty, the harmony that lies within the compass of the scientific balance of life or that within the glory of our beloved brother Jesus' worship & ceremony or the perfection & harmony within the seventh ray.

We are so desirous of coupling the knowledge which feeds the intellect & stirs the feeling with that definite application by which those of you who are chosen to wear the Golden Robe may become the master control of the energies that are yet within the compass of your sphere of influence.

The dispensation from the heart of the Great Central Sun increased the number of lifestreams to be given the opportunity in this next six-month period to contact & blend with their own Christ Self. It becomes the service of the Brothers of the Golden Robe to in some manner infiltrate the consciousness of these chosen ones against the mass pressure of the tides of energy which form the lower atmosphere of Earth until they can sense at least the power of the Presence of God within the heartbeat.

Again & yet again in the East century after century after century is the disciple turned to that teacher of teachers until he can recognize his voice. Then, comprehending his truth, he leans no longer on form of any kind, neither guru nor master nor any externalized manifestation of the One. But in our beautiful East where the heaven is open & the catehdral of life provides the natural setting for the development of the soul, it is not difficult for the individual to become quiet enough so that the impressed directives of the master opens the way for that communion by which soul growth & development & spiritual maturity are attained.

When we turn our attention to the West the entire current & directives of our endeavors must adapt themselves to the rapid pace with which the vibratory action of mankind at present is so deeply enmeshed. I long for the opportunity to take you collectively as well as individually into an aura that has been protected & sustained in undisturbed harmony for even thirty days. Long long before my own personal victory when I endeavored to draw the spiritual community at Crotona, my contemplations led me to believe that in the silence this peace & harmony might be established sufficiently so that aspirants at least could find the way home. Some thought that discipline of the silence severe, & so it was for it made every man face himself & without the crutch of words or contact, he had to walk back alone into that secret place of the Most High & there abide, becoming cognizant thru that endeavor of the Christ.

As the beloved St. Germain is intensifying the radiation of the freedom flame thru his exquisite retreat in the Transylvanian Mountains, we are preparing to accept the consciousness of those of you who wish to go beyond the collective unfoldment of the group to that height of understanding which you all once knew. This is thus but a reawakening of the dormant memory which stirs with you when we come together but which slumbers again when the stimulus of our flame & Presence withdraws. With each such coming as our love enfolds you that memory intensifies thru the folds of your outer consciousness, & you sleep not as soundly as before & so in patience we return again, again & yet again, gently feeding that immortal flame of your life. We know that in so doing one day you too will become that Master Presence.

May I thank you on behalf of the beloved Morya whom I love as much as life itself for your kindness & willingness to serve with him. It was not so long ago that we sat together & he spoke to me of this design that he held within his heart which he felt would help our beloved St. Germain as he faced another crisis in his constant endeavor to serve the peoples of Earth. I was surprised to find Morya so soon after our endeavors thru Theosophy ready to begin again, but yet in that decision which was his I promised to stand by his side for I love him. I love the service in which our hearts' light has bound us together in friendship which has been one of the sweetest experiences of my individualization. It is a beautiful thing for me to see that his circle of friends grows larger & that those who feared him fear no more but have accepted the kindness, sweetness & great love that are within his heart.

As the days unfold into years & as you come to know us & to join in closer & closer association with us I AM sure you too will cherish that friendship, & as you do it brings us each into such a sweet association, dear hearts, that enables us thru you to serve the race & you too thru us to taste the glory of heaven long before the day when your own individual call is come, the final page in your Book of Life written, your record balanced & your hearts return home. We who have passed this way know well this yearning, know well the sacrifice entailed in remaining, for it was not so long since that we too struggled with opinions & we too hoped & felt disappointments thru the accumulations of human selves & we too stopped to build again upon the ashes of our previous endeavors.

I stood myself & saw my beautiful school burned to the ground, within it all the records of a lifetime, all the exquisite achievement of pupils in whom I had invested all the energies of my being, artwork the like of which had not been since the days of Atlantis, sculpture, marble figures dashed from their pedestals & crushed by vandal hands. Gardens & exquisite trees were destroyed until only a rubble remained of a vision into which I had invested a lifetime. I have never dared to revivify that vision in my free estate nor have I looked back until this day, & yet the experiences within that life were such that they did enable me to become master of energy & one day my teacher said, "You are now a harmonizing presence which will never again be disturbed by any external distress nor any internal weakness. You are fitted to enter my service & become a member of my court & one day soon if you shall choose, wear my cloak upon your shoulders."

If you could see, beloved children, how you build up that mastery, you would really welcome opportunities to flood the flame from within your own God-Self thru energy of a turbulent nature, & one day when you stand before Lord Maitreya & you feel the benediction & blessing as he confirms your appointment as that presence, you will be happy indeed for every endeavor along this line.

I AM grateful for your calls for rain & I AM grateful for the release thru nature. I AM sensitive beyond all words to describe to the song of nature & to her cry, for it was in the cathedral of nature that I found my peace & my ultimate victory. Even yet wherever I AM so long as I remain within the orbit of this Earth I sense & respond to any cry from the Eart or from the nature kingdom, the four-footed kingdom or your own body elementals when distress causes unhappiness. I have felt for the people of India & China where those great famines wipe out millions of lifestreams. I feel exceedingly for the people who suffer because the creations of mankind have been such that nature can no longer abundantly supply them.

But where there are conscious chelas where drought or flood or pestilence or any kind of distress appear, it is so unnecessary, & we always look with hope that some may open the door that we may render the service & bring that balance. It is one thing for the unconscious masses to suffer but it is an indignity to our own life & our friendship, for those who are our heart friends, to allow such suffering in their presence. May I commend you then on your endeavors & encourage you in my commendation to go further! I thank you & I bless you, & good night. KUTHUMI
