CULTIVATING INNER PEACE
WELCOME BROTHERS & SISTERS ON THE GOLDEN PATH TO INNER PEACE ……… THAT PEACE THAT PASSES THE UNDERSTANDING OF THE HUMAN MIND!
THE PLANET, AS YOU KNOW, IS PASSING THROUGH A VERY DANGEROUS AND CHAOTIC PERIOD, and if we could depend on your outer selves to hold a certain harmony, WE COULD USE YOU, WITHOUT LIMIT, IN DELIVERING THIS BEAUTIFUL EARTH FROM DESTRUCTIVE ACTIVITIES. Mother Mary
Becoming a Mighty Reservoir of Peace
“He shall cover thee with his feathers, and under his wings shall thou trust.” Psalms 91:4
Let us quote what the Ascended Masters said on the subject of holding undisturbed peace.
Beloved Ascended Master Jesus – Prince of Peace:
“One man, woman or child, learning the self-mastery of UNDISTURBED PEACE, under ALL circumstances, can, through the expansion of consciousness, hold an entire continent in perfect balance. In early ages, this God-illumination, elf-mastery, and undisturbed peace, enabled those, so equipped, to sustain the entire Earth during her lowest ebb.
In the atmosphere around the Earth, there is this turbulence, moving energy of which I speak, and yet, in the midst of all that – ONE LIFESTREAM, turning his attention toward God or myself, or any Divine Being, can draw back enough PEACE to hold the balance for a community, a city, a state or a nation!
When the fishermen in the boat were sore distressed because of the raging sea, where did I receive the power that stilled the waters? I had, through the assistance of both my mother and father, and Lord Maitreya, been taught, from childhood, to magnetize peace, and that peace became a great reservoir, and so I said to the waters, ‘Peace be still.’ And naturally the raging sea responded, because there was more energy already drawn around me, qualified with God-Peace, than all of the turbulence of the Sea of Galilee.”
Beloved Ascended Lady Master Mother Mary:
“It was not easy for me to hold the peace when I led that little “infant” (at least to me he seemed so) through the gates of the Temple of Luxor. It was not easy to hold the peace, either, when, after the passing of Joseph, Jesus went the long way alone, across mountains and plains, into India for further instructions.
On Good Friday I also had to hold the feeling of peace around blessed Jesus, as a protective aureole, while his blessed bleeding body was nailed to the cross.
If I had not been able to hold that inner peace, there would no Christian Dispensation today, no mighty cathedrals, with their spires pointing to the sky, no great choirs of lovely singers, and no ecclesiastical glory of the Christian Church.
When the come times (when there will in the future) when great numbers of people will require your assistance, your emotional stability will be the forcefield over which our protection can flow. SO BUILD IT NOW! And in your sanctuaries and groups, watch the quality of the decree work, watch the quality of your songs, watch the quality and energy and fibre of your group-endeavour, to keep that wonderful positive balance.
You must be pliable, so alert, and so capable in the handling of emergencies, that the pressure of their energies do not throw you off balance. You will see dear one, IF YOU CANNOT HANDLE THE PRESSURE OF ENERGIES OF THE LIFESTREAMS WITH WHOM YOU ARE ASSOCIATED IN HOMES AND IN BUSINESS, HOW CAN WE ANCHOR, THROUGH YOU, THOSE COSMIC CURRENTS TO HANDLE THE SURGING TIDES OF AN ENTIRE CITY, OR A NATION, OR A CONTINENT OR A PLANET?”
Nothing can be permanently sustained anywhere in this universe, without the feeling of undisturbed peace. The calm, poised, reasoning individual becomes the pivotal point for the greater number, who are unable to intelligently cope with sudden shock, surprise, fear, or whatever the appearance may be. We have all heard of how great audiences have been safely removed from burning buildings through the quick thinking and masterful control of either an entertainer or a member of the audience, itself, who directed the thought pattern of the crowd and maintained order and balance in the entire group.
Emotional hysteria and all mass feeling are highly contagious, and run – like a forest fire – through the feeling world of mankind. There is no individual who is proof against sudden unexpected disturbance, unless such a one ahs carefully and constantly trained himself to remain poised and balanced in the face of emergencies, and has built a momentum of controlled energy into his own world. The practice ground for such training is our daily environment. Kipling said, “It is well if you can keep your head, when all about you are losing theirs and blaming it on you!”
We have all had the experience of contacting a calm, poised individual when we, ourselves, have been distressed, and have witnessed the effect of the transference of that calm, poised assured feeling stilling our won distressed emotions. Thus, although hysteria, fear and uncontrolled emotions are instantly transferable, so, to are the higher spiritual qualities of peace, poise and balance.
When the Great Silent Watcher of the continent, the Great Silent Watcher of the city, or the Great Silent Watchers of the local units see some great need, then they call an SOS to the heart of the Brotherhood for help. The Brotherhood looks down upon that location and it is finds the chela’s energies in a state of violent emotions, disturbed and distressed, that individual is temporarily cut off from the consciousness of the Brotherhood and the conductor through the world of form is not there.
THE PLANET, AS YOU KNOW, IS PASSING THROUGH A VERY DANGEROUS AND CHAOTIC PERIOD, and if we could depend on your outer selves to hold a certain harmony, WE COULD USE YOU, WITHOUT LIMIT, IN DELIVERING THIS BEAUTIFUL EARTH FROM DESTRUCTIVE ACTIVITIES.
Are you going to be a comfort, a balance, a protection, a healing “conductor”, or are you going to be swept into the chaos of the uncontrolled?
In those moments, if you are not prepared and at peace, you are temporarily cut off from the Brotherhood as a channel for their outgoing, controlled, force, which would but energise you chaos, were they to pour it out to you when you were in distress.
Remember always that when you are dealing with a great number of confused individuals, who are emotionally disturbed, before you attempt to reach their minds, first call to the great Archangel Jophiel to quite the feelings, visualizing his Golden Flame and Ray blazing up and around them. Make the application for their feeling world PRECEEDING your endeavor to reach the reasoning faculties. This will assist you, in blanketing the disturbed energy that is rampant, in an outpouring of peace. Then as you speak with authority and present the Law (which, when applied, brings the protection, the supply, the peace of mind required in an emergency) it will anchor into the consciousness and bear fruit.”
Let us then, individually, begin to train ourselves to remain the peace-commanding presence in the face of the small, trifling experiences of daily life, that, when, and if, the occasion should ever arise, we may abide under the wings of the Almighty and, further, become those very wings to the children of Earth, who might require our presence, comfort, assistance and counsel.
EXERCISE TO CALM FEELINGS
Practice this simple exercise to bring GREAT PEACE:
If you feel irritated, visualize the Elohim of Peace standing above you, pouring down over you a stream of soft, golden, healing oil, the colour of molten gold. See that pouring down over the head and then flowing right down over the entire body absorbing that substance like a blotter absorbs ink. See it running down over the nervous system, clear to the ends of your fingertips and toes. Consciously accept this substance and radiation for a few minutes until you can FEEL its benefit and call your I AM Presence into action to keep it sustained and ever expanding.
This exercise is good to use at night just before entering sleep, and with a little practice, it will induce the relaxation that brings sound, refreshing sleep.
One must keep the attention riveted upon this activity for at least two or three minutes at a time. During the day, if more time is available, and you seem tired, needing more energy, see the stream of golden oil more sparkling, until it becomes quite dazzling.
You may use this exercise on others too, when you see they need assistance, for many folks have the appearance of “frayed” nerves these days.
THE PEACE OF HIS PRESENCE (say often)
Wherever I AM, the Father is present
Wherever I AM, is infinite peace
Wherever I AM, is God’s protection
Wherever I AM, man’s troubles cease
