To Our Sweet Earth:
On behalf of the people of Earth, who have enjoyed your hospitality for so many centuries, we say GOD BLESS YOU! LET MANKIND NOW SERVE YOU, UNTIL YOU ARE RETURNED TO THE BEAUTY, PERFECTION, HARMONY AND BALANCE WHICH YOU KNEW BEFORE YOUR GUESTS DESPOILED YOUR GRACIOUS GARMENTS!
For so many spring times, with the beauty that brought hope and promise to the race, thank you! For the richness of harvest, we thank you. For the very platform upon which the feet of the race rest in security, working out their individual destinies, we thank you. For your protection and care of the elementals and the nature kingdom, we thank you.
To those who have served with you, the Kingdoms of the Angels, the elementals, the Great Directors of the Elements of Water, Air, Fire, Earth and Ethers, we say GOD BLESS YOU!
The Fiat of the Cosmic Law required that you give forth more light. It was mankind who dimmed that light. It is our decree that mankind now arise and give you back YOUR NATURAL LIGHT! To this end, we dedicate ourselves (the Spiritual Hierarchy) and to this Cause we invoke the fair and just among the human race who feel it is not Earth but its despoilers who must "make things right!"
Sweet Earth, we love you. We remember many happy hours on your surface. We shall see you again shining with the Light of the Sun. Even Venus, in all her Celestial Glory, shall wear robes no more beautiful than your own, woven from the love of those of us who are grateful for your hospitality, patience and forbearance.

The Homes and Retreats of the Masters of Wisdom
Paul, The Venetian Master-Chateau de Liberte
September 15th through October 14th, 1954
The home of the Beloved Venetian Master is located in the southern part of France and is the focus for the Liberty Flame upon the planet Earth today.
The Third Ray is primarily concerned with the development of the beautiful ideas and thoughts which have been sent forth into the Universe by the Father-Mother God and the Intelligences who abide within the First and Second Spheres of Light. The Chohan who represents this Ray is, therefore, vitally interested in the encouragement of the talents and gifts of the children of God who have incarnated with a specific reason for being. All lifestreams were primarily created with a specific reason for being, but many have willfully discarded serving that purpose and presently are not even cognizant of what that reason might be. Those who have a definite drive toward accomplishments of a specific nature are among the few who either consciously remember their original purpose in the scheme of creation or are unconsciously prodded by an awakening spiritual sense in the heart.
To these awakened and awakening ones, the Beloved Paul is the Spiritual Brother. The faith, confidence and encouragement which keeps them going flows from the Third Ray which he in such love and sincerity directs through even the most feeble efforts toward self-expression.
At the Chateau de Liberte, he plays host to the accomplished musicians, artists, sculptors, poets, writers and, generally, those whose talents, momentums and developed services have drawn them from among the masses and marked them out for more than ordinary assistance. The conscious chelas are sometimes privileged to enter the secluded Retreat and enjoy the beauty of the rose gardens, the playing fountains, the magnificent sculpture and art work which has been gathered from the four corners of the Earth through many ages. The far greater number of his pupils and prodigies visit his Presence in their inner bodies which the physical garments sleep and receive from him the spiritual stimulus to continue to develop in their particular line of unfoldment.
The beautiful Liberty Flame has pulsated throughout France since before the sinking of the last remnants of the Continent Atlantis. It was from this Flame that the European patriot. who served the Cause of the Americas in their struggle for independence received the impetus and stimulus to make the sacrifices involved in such service.
