Assimilation and Expansion
of theElectronic Pattern,
Securing the Flame of Hope and Faith within our hearts we patiently allow the essence of awakening to unfold and firmly take hold within our consciousness. With confidence and without reservation we move forward on our spiritual path of ascendancy.
Breathing Statement *for the Assimilation and Expansion
of the Electronic Pattern
(Breathe in) I AM inbreathing
(Hold breath in) I AM absorbing
(Breathe out) I AM expanding
(Hold breath out) I AM projecting
...the complete responsibility and joy of fulfilling the Divine Plan of the New Age! (3x)
* The breathing statement should be given four times for each full breath. On the inbreath, breath in the qualities contained within the Flame. As you hold your breath in, absorb the qualities deep within every part of your being. As you breathe out, expand and increase the power and momentum of the divine qualities you are calling forth through the power of the Holy Breath. As you hold your breath out of your body, project these magnificent God Qualities forth to all life. Repeat this exercise a minimum of three full breaths.

The Cause and Effect of Light
I behold within you a new Light blazing from your heart centers outward into everything with which you are currently involved.
It has been said in the past that what you hold within your consciousness is the cause, and what you radiate forth and become a part of in the physical appearance world, is the effect. So it must be said that your consciousness has caused quite an effect upon those around you!
Consider what you have learned in this Activity and how you have used it to change your life. It is one thing to know the truth and quite another to live the truth; and this is what I wish to discuss with you today. To spout truths by rote is one thing, but to be the example of that which you believe in your heart to others, is quite another.
When you are the example of the truths which you know and outpicture in the world of form, you will cause humankind to want to know the truth also. This is the cause that will affect humanity the most!
There is one example you can be that will benefit life to the fullest, and that is holding the Immaculate Concept for all life; every man, woman, and child on the planet, all members of the angelic and elemental kingdoms - ALL LIFE! Hold within your consciousness only the highest and best for everyone concerned, no matter what the outer appearances may be. Then join with others to hold the same ideal. At a certain point in time, when enough individuals are doing the same, be assured that perfection will manifest for all.
In seeing the good of all situations, you increase the Light brought into each one. As you well know, Light removes the shadows of imperfection, until only the perfection remains.
Another example useful in the development of self, and in the teaching of others, of which they may not even be aware, is the great tool of silence. Silence can be of service in a myriad of ways. I will share just a few with you. Silence is a great teacher, because - in the silence - you are shown how to get along with others. You are given the necessary time to consider all points of the law and respond in a responsible manner.
I want to point out that the word "response" is contained within the word "responsibility". As a chela, it is of the utmost importance that you guard your every response to life around you. Be sure that you choose the right response for the good of the whole.
You will see that every thought, word, and action create thoughtforms which affect all life around you, remaining until they are transmuted back into pure energy again. You must always ask yourself: "What is it that I want in the atmosphere around myself? What will people see and feel in me? Do I want discord and anger, or peace and harmony?" Then, Dear Ones remember - right response!
Preparation is also of the utmost importance to you, my chelas. I know that in your enthusiasm to work with the Higher Beings of Light, personal preparation may be overlooked upon occasion. Do not forget to use the Sacred Flames that have been so lovingly given to you. Each one is important, but especially so are those that assist in clearing the way and providing protection to you, and the others you walk with along your Path. Also, remember to prepare your individual and group sanctuaries before you begin any work, for this can also be overlooked from time to time.
The quality of constancy should be used in every aspect of your life. The faithful application of all that you have learned will greatly increase the gifts you have to share with those you contact, during your earthly sojourn and beyond.
At this particular point in your evolution, acceptance of responsibility is of the greatest importance. Accept who and what you are. Take your place in God's great Divine Plan. Harbor no doubt in your mind, for you are part of the Activity of the Cosmic Christ, rekindling the Flame within the hearts of all humanity!
Remember that the calls were made even before this world was. It is time to give your answer now. Feel it within your emotional body, know it within your mental body, respond to it within your etheric body, and manifest it now through your physical body.
It is my desire that you now take these suggestions, many of which will be expanded upon at a later time, to heart. If you are not already using them in your life, I ask that you begin to do so now, for these qualities will greatly increase your forward development, ultimately leading to your ascension.
Our Fire Element
The human body is made up of water, air and earth, and is animated by Spiritual Fire, which is the transmuting element that eventually absorbs the other three elements into itself.
When the earth, the water and the air have become completely permeated by the Fire of Spirit, they become etheric substance, and at the moment of the Ascension, the Fire of the Divine returns to the One Universal Consciousness with the transmuted elements of the Earth within Itself... thus, the Ascension is the ascending of the Fiery Flame which has animated the physical body from the beginning of time.
At so-called death the Flame ascends, but without absorbing the purified substance of the earth body, and therefore remains but one element.
At the time of the Ascension, the Flame becomes the four elements, and in that Ascension you have the four-square activity of the Fourth Dimension, and there is no return of the Flame to the Earth because its journey is completed.If the chela will visualize this Fire in the Breath drawing all of their Earth substance into itself, and thus prepares for its last journey Home, they will be able to hasten the process of purification preceding the Ascension.
The Truth of Freedom
For eons of time, humanity searched for the New World. Century upon century, efforts were concentrated upon looking here, there, and everywhere! Always, it seemed there was a new horizon which lay before these searchers. Surely, there was something wonderful just over that horizon, waiting to be discovered! However, when the New World was found and the Freedom all hoped it would contain, still another horizon was discovered before us, and that we were not yet free! The freedom sought was not over the next horizon, but deep within our own Hearts! This is true for all of you, too!
Spiritual freedom is not something that you can discover outside of yourself. It is not to be found in another country; it does not lie within possessions, and - even though it is within every human heart - it cannot be obtained from another person. When you discover true Spiritual Freedom, it will not matter where or who you are, because you will be standing in the very center of the Kingdom of Heaven in a mighty forcefield of Divine Love, Light and Protection!
From within that forcefield, rhythmic pulsations of Purity, Freedom and Perfection will be flowing forth to fill your being and world with every virtue of the Godhead. With your every heartbeat and breath, you will be surrounding all life within your atmosphere with the hope and faith that they, too, will attain the Kingdom of God within! Beloved Ones, I bow before the Flame of the Living Christ that dwells within the tabernacle of your own heart, right here and right now!
I see you searching, turning over every stone, reading every book, listening closely to all those who claim to have the answers you seek. All forms of meditation have become extremely popular, and people everywhere are seeking, seeking, seeking the truth - the enlightenment that will set them free from their earthly concerns and difficulties. When I tell you this freedom dwells within, perhaps you feel you already know this fact, but do not know quite how to enter this exalted place.
I bless and honor your every effort to find the truth of your Being. The very activity of searching that is taking place all over the world right now is the result of the dedicated, trusting work of all chelas who are embodied on the Earth at this time. You have already made inroads to the fullness of the Light of God you seek! You have begun the process of claiming your Divine Heritage!
One of the qualities I will tell you to develop is that of patience. Another is hope, for hope is the quality of awakening; the virtue that paves the way for faith to get a firm foothold in your consciousness. Faith always follows the anchoring of the Flame of Hope within the human heart. That is why during this year we should make a supreme effort to instill this sacred Divine quality within the hearts of all humanity.
Faith in the ascendancy of God consciousness to overcome the human is absolutely essential for the chela! Faith precedes confidence, and you now stand at the point upon the spiritual path where you must develop confidence without reservation.
We have the responsibility, as well as the joy of fulfilling the objectives of the New Age of Spiritual Freedom that will take place during the two thousand year cycle into which we have now entered.
During the early part of the first millennium of this cycle the major use of the Violet Fire will be that of purifying and transmuting the energies bound within the veil of maya. Also during this time, the influence of the Seventh Ray will intensify within all people and groups who are working for the cause of freedom, whether it is directed at political, economic, personal, or spiritual freedom. This work must be completed before the complete orbital shift may be accomplished.
The aspect of ceremonial, already established, will come into stronger expression. I would like to clarify a point regarding the influence of the ceremonial aspect of the Seventh Ray. It influences all humanity, but not to establish identical expressions. You are observing many different forms of ceremony unfolding throughout various groups, teachings, and activities. These ceremonies will be specific to various groups of endeavor, at all levels of understanding. Do not expect everyone to agree or be comfortable with the specific forms you may prefer.
Develop understanding and loving acceptance toward all others who are expanding the Light of the New Age in their own ways. Take time to communicate with others as opportunities arise, seeking to understand their ideas and ideals.
Importantly, take time to teach the underlying meaning of the ceremonies that are a part of your practices if and when questions arise. If you do not understand these ceremonies yourself, then it is your responsibility to ask and discover the principles upon which your ceremonial endeavors are based.
Above all, I ask for constancy of endeavor from all of you! Rhythm of application is so deeply important, and this is an integral part of the quality of constancy that I ask of you. The difference this will make in your personal lives and worlds in clearing things up and moving along in your spiritual work is tremendous. Until this clearing is done at the personal level, the tendency is to continue to fall back into the hypnosis of human consciousness. Never sacrifice your spiritual standards for the quick and easy ways promised by so many! There are no shortcuts except the firmness of your loyalty to Spiritual Principle, and this cannot be over-emphasized!
Beloved Friends, you have been given much to think about! Accept these messages in the spirit of love with which it is given. Know beyond a shadow of doubt that the victorious accomplishment of the New Age of Spiritual Freedom pulsates in the ethers of the Earth right here and now! Take this moment to feel its vibratory activity entering your heart centers and becoming a part of your being and world right now and forever sustained! Let it flow forth from your hearts to full manifestation throughout the Earth!

Perception of Illumination
Now, if you will breathe in deeply I ask that—before you release this breath—you absorb and clothe it in the quieter, more reflective qualities of the Second Ray of God Illumination and Wisdom. Under Its influence, one takes the time to sort through the magnificent ideas and inspirations that are released from the First Ray. At the great Teton Retreat, each chela spends time in contemplation and reflection upon his or her particular field of endeavor. They do this to precipitate and develop new ideas that will assist them to further their abilities to serve.
All of these members are teachers of the highest order. They serve chelas and students of Light from all over the planet Earth, training them to also precipitate ideas which will, in turn, help them in their work.
A large part of successful teaching rests in the ability to discern what is useful to your special field of endeavor. Then you must release that which you do not need, so it may be used elsewhere. At this Retreat, we work with all Seven Rays, and there are teachers qualified to do this. There is great camaraderie and sharing of ideas and methods. This is to provide a coordinated network of teaching through which those from every Ray may learn to work in concert with all others for the good of the whole.
It is my desire to give you an overview of how the Spiritual Hierarchy and all of retreats work together for the highest good of the entire planet Earth and all of her evolutions, without sacrificing their individuality and special abilities. The understanding of how all the pieces of a puzzle fit together is necessary, but it is not necessary to know and be all things as an individual. It is only asked that you fulfill your part of the Divine Plan in order to help complete the overall picture; the purified planet Earth, a shining Star of Spiritual Freedom, ready to take her place in the Divine Plan of this entire universe.
There is a further step to be taken after you have discerned the ideas you feel are suitable to your Divine plan. That step comes under the influence of the Third Ray of God's Divine Love, which will form the matrix into which you will project your new idea. Then you will be working with the Cosmic Buddha, holds the Three-fold Flames of the entire race within this Aura. What more perfect opportunity could be presented to each one of you than to magnetize this radiation into your Heart-Flames, precipitating that cosmic force of Love to bring your plans to fruition?
I have told you that no matter how far you come in your evolution, there will always be a 'far superior being' who has passed this way before you, and waits to assist and guide you onward. One day, not too far distant, you will stand here, and say how happy you are that you fulfilled your special part of this great plan, for you will see its beauty and perfection manifest! I await that day with great anticipation!
