Gautama Buddha: Doctrine of
the Middle Way, 4-18-1957,
dictated to G. Innocente
Beloved & blessed ones, I AM come to bring you
peace, peace of mind, of soul & of body, that peace which is strong enough to sustain you & be a channel thru which
the cosmic peace from higher realms may flow at will to change the quality of energy in yourself & those around you who
are not yet within themselves the fullness of that peace!
To draw from the heart of the universal First Cause enough
of that God-qualified energy to sustain mind peace & feeling peace no matter what the conditions in which the lifestream
finds itself, is to have builded a momentum upon which others may draw in times of crisis as well as in times of meditation.
There are two paths for the true Buddhist to take, the one is the path towards the ultimate reaching thru the world
of form thru transcendency of all human nature until the individual becomes one with that source I AM, & choosing to so
remain, adding the consciousness of his awareness to the effulgence of that source, & thus does nirvana spread & expand
in its glory as each such one is caught up & becomes a part of the light of that realm. Then there is the other path where
having tasted the magnificence of unity with the source of All-Good, having become united in consciousness & being with
that good one chooses of freewill to descend into a world of form & endeavor to radiate forth that consciousness of the
Causal Body of the Creator & form an anchorage of divinity's Presence for unascended beings!
Those of you in unascended
bodies today have the great opportunity of being such an anchorage of God-control at your point in the universe knowing full
well that in the motions of energy that which you magnetize & generate & radiate must reach to the periphery of this
world of form & touch every living thing from the smallest electron to the greatest Solar Lord, returning on the current
of your own energy into your own world. Choose you then to be a sun of right use of life adding to the peace that his world
requires or choose you to be a generator of further distresses that not only react upon your fellowman & nature kingdom
but in truth of the law of the circle react upon your own souls as well.
I was one who chose the path of return to
this Earth having known the joy of the Formless having expanded in consciousness into the Presence of the eternal God, having
witnessed on my ascent & descent the magnificence of the inner kingdoms where many beings serve in transcendently beautiful
forms. I chose to create thru my own life energy & aura that to which any disciple might have access &, touching its
periphery be raised into that consciousness which I had experienced & which I did sustain during all those years of my
ministry. You can do the same! That aura is required among unascended men, women & children as a radiating power to raise
them out of distress into peace. That aura is radiation more than spoken word.
In the East, beloved ones, as perhaps
you know very very little instruction is given thru the spoken word. Disciples are trained thruout the entire course of their
lives to live within the aura of their master & by proximity to his greater understanding & illumination their own
God-flames expand, their understanding increases & the natural expansion from within out takes place, though sometimes
Guru & disciple do not exchange one word orally during the entire course of an embodiment.
There are various &
sundry schools of thought in which individuals have been trained in the practice of silence of tongue but have neglected discipline
of clamorous thoughts & feelings. The discipline therefore is incomplete. It is the capacity to so silence mind, to so
quiet feelings, to so relax flesh form that full connection between God-self & the Christ that beats your heart is established.
Then that Christ expanding its directions thru brain gives illumination to outer self as well as radiation of light to the
world around you. All the silence in the world does not accomplish the victory when it is but silence of tongue any more than
all words of the world do not accomplish victory when they are but words of the flesh garment!
Again we come to the
doctrine of the Middle Way, the combination of the wise, powerful, constructive us of the Word when required & the restraint
from use of those words when required, the holding of silence when necessity for peace or healing or protection is evident
to the advanced chela, or the speaking of the Word of power into the atmosphere for control of human consciousness & minds
& elemental life. As you have seen sun & moon reflected upon waters, you know how an agitated sea makes but a distorted
reflection of those stellar bodies. That is exactly the same truth insofar as your lower bodies are concerned. Where there
is inner agitation, whether it is emotional, mental, etheric or physical, you have a vibratory action that is foreign to the
divine radiation that seeks to pour thru you. In other words as beloved Jesus said, you are not porous to the Spirit of God.
When you have a controlled feeling world, a mind that can concentrate & be still, an etheric body that does not
carry the memory of ages that have been in which all types of distresses manifested, & a physical body that is alert &
clean & functioning harmoniously then does that light of which I speak flow freely into your hearts & expand thru
you to give the fullness of that cosmic radiation which is the hem of your spiritual garment.
Beloved ones, you who
are on the Earth's surface today have you any conception how much the garment of the spirit is needed, whether you refer to
it as the garment of Buddha or the garment of Christ? Can you with your limited consciousness conceive the requirement of
virtue in this lower atmosphere which is attainable by any individual thru touching the hem of that spiritual garment which
you weave out of your own life thru discipline, contemplation, control & application? There will come a day when you will
remember me, when hands will reach toward your garment, & in the name of the One God who created both of us, you &
I, I ask that that virtue may be ready, established & more powerful far than the turbulent energy of those who will seek
assistance from you.
When it was told to me that my own Causal Body was prepared to take upon myself the responsibility
of enfolding this entire planet & all her evolutions in sufficient peace & mastery so that Sanat Kumara could return
to his star, I felt the responsibility which the accepting of such an office would mean. Remember, beloved ones, the Lord
of the World becomes the guardian, protector & illuminating Presence of every electron belonging to the planet for which
he has been ordained to serve. An individual who comes to the place where he is considered by cosmic law as ready to assume
the Office of Lord of the World has full access to the status of all souls in that planetary system, all etheric substance
around it, & the mental & emotional radiation from its peoples embodied & disembodied, from its elemental life,
from its nature kingdom, the animal kingdom as well.
I can tell you that many who are offered the position of Lord
of a World do not choose to accept it when they look upon the inner vibratory action of evolution they are offered the joy
of redeeming. But as my path has been that of renunciation & as I began the world teaching thru returning to Earth &
giving the simple doctrine of the Middle Way, when I had achieved a Causal Body equal to that of Lord Sanat Kumara, it was
within my very nature to renounce nirvana again & take upon my shoulders the responsibility for this planet's sustenance
in the solar system which previously had been sustained thru the love of the great Sanat Kumara.
An individual does
not easily make such a decision, beloved ones, especially when a planet has been allowed to degenerate to the point that Earth
has, yet regeneration begins from within out, from the very heart of your Earth to its periphery, from the very seed of divinity
within your souls to its periphery by which the light of the world increases hourly.
We are grateful in the extreme
for the return of the great Sanat Kumara who has agin renounced his freedom on Venus to become a part of the balancing process
during this particular period when the very Earth itself as well as its peoples are passing thru certain chemical as well
as physical & inner changes. Beloved ones, how can I speak to human minds of the type of service & endeavor which
I have followed thru so many ages? It is like talking to small children. Yet for the privilege & honor of establishing
the radiation on this Holy Thursday of the Christ Presence I have come & thru you each according to your individual consciousness
shall I pass the radiation of my flame & my virtue until your souls transcend personal nature & truly ascend into
the divine. then that divinity expanding thru you like flashing blazing light creates that Causal Body around your fleshform
which is the divine & immortal protection which life requires at this moment & shall require until all life is set
As some of you may have witnessed the activity pouring thru my body you can see that it carries the seven rays
in a horizontal radiation circling outward & outward starting from the heart of this humble room until it does envelop
the Earth. That radiation starting from my own heart grows larger & larger & continues to swing around the Earth in
a clocklike manner rendering a service which only those who are ascended & God-free can truly know. As you tune into that
please feel the gifts of the seven rays passing thru your own inner vehicles & your chakra centers & your own physical
form & see if you can hold your own conscious balance within that outpouring.
Now when the radiation from ascended
masters or cosmic beings is very rapid the chela often falls asleep or blacks out because the brain consciousness cannot rise
to the vibration of the ascended being or master. There is that constant & eternal problem of how high a vibration can
be achieved among magnetzing chelas without passing beyond that point where consciousness can no longer stand the power of
those vibrations. For that reason even here this morning you can feel that sensation & to counteract it just draw within
your own heart that stabilizing anchoring Presence of God-peace, that infinite peace that cannot even be disturbed by the
rending of the human veil & the astonishment of senses at seeing the magnificence of members of the celestial hierarchy,
for that too has often times in an earnest one thrown him off balance because it also causes him to witness human imperfection
on a large scale.
So, to hold that infinite Middle Way of balance no matter what the senses report or eyes shall witness
or ears shall hear, whatever revelation shall have come, to hold that balance & retain conscious control of your own vehicles
is the mastery which I did teach & do yet teach to those who choose to come within the compass of my aura. To hold that
peace no matter what the distress of elements, to hold that peace no matter what chaos of outer world, that is the application
of the aspirant & chela following the Buddhistic way.
I spoke of detachment from form for exactly this reason--form in itself is very beautiful. The form of great Archangels,
Seraphim & Cherubim is very beautiful. Form in this physical world may be beautiful but the difficulty with the soul of
the chela is that it attaches itself to form & that form often becomes more dear to the chela than another form who may
require assistance just as much. When form becomes for you something of beauty that you can enjoy impersonally & you are
free of attachment to any one particular form, then you have gained a great victory. But in my case as in that of beloved
Jesus & other teachers, many centuries went by & many of these simple homely truths that we spoke of were embellished
upon by eager scholars who created into many rituals & formats much of the essence of simple truths we presented, which
thus was lost.
The only thing that I can tell you, beloved ones, is what masters who have come before me have taught
& will teach, that is, the Control of Your Own Energy which creates a magnetic field & makes you porous to the Spirit
of God which beats your heart. That Spirit of God moves forward or in in & around you establishing peace or healing or
protection wheresoever you may require it, & it is the same activity that was manifested thru the body & person of
Jesus as well as thru the body & person of myself & many other good & faithful individuals who have lived before
us & since. Now as you proceed into your worship & cognizance of the Spirit of Almighty God, take with you the blessings
of one who found the Middle Way, the safe way, in God's most holy name! GAUTAMA
