INVOCATION: Thou Mighty, Infinite Presencel
All -Enfolding Love! Infinite in Thy Activity, gracious
in Thy Loving Power, we salute Thee heart to heart,
face to face, pouring forth eternal gratitude for the
outpouring of Thy Mighty Energy, for the use of Thy
Directing Wisdom, for the Presence of Thy Opulence
in our homes and use. We acclaim ourselves that ac-
tive part of Thee, Self-conscious of Thy Divinity,
maintaining every hour Thy Supreme Command.
I bring you Greetings from the Great Host who
minister, and who watch all activity.
We all rejoice exceedingly in the wondrous, loving
presence of the students— for the great harmony, joy,
and accomplishment that has been attained.
How mighty that Miracle-Working Presence,
“I AM,” can and will manifest Its Dominion if such
a wonderful state is maintained; and I tell you with
no uncertainty, it can be maintained, ever growing
greater and greater in the comprehension of that God
Presence in Its Supreme Power of Divine Love.
Every student should remember with definite
certainty that in this Quickening Power of the “I AM
Presence” within his Being, everything good or other-
wise is stirred into action. If there is latent within the
consciousness: rebellion, resentment, or the inclina-
tion to judge, it means that all this will be stirred and
brought to the surface to be consumed; and I tell you
with no uncertainty, unless the student consciously
consumes that which is brought forth to the surface,
it will consume him. If one finds himself becoming
irritated, he should seize the reins, and issuing the
command through the “I AM Presence,” declare that
this be governed harmoniously. Here let Me again re-
mind the students that the greatest thing in their pro-
gress is Self-correction; and there is no person, place,
condition or thing to blame for what they entertain
but themselves. This is most imperative for their future
These beloved students have arrived at a point
where such subtle conditions must be made clear and
thoroughly understood; otherwise they will find
themselves facing conditions they are unable to
I repeat again to the students to be greatly en-
couraged because of the strides they are making in
Self-control, the fuller and fuller acceptance of these
Mighty Laws of Life, and their willingness to apply
the mighty whip of Self- correction; for I tell you
frankly and I speak from experience, that the outer
activity which we term the “human” has to be flayed
with no uncertainty before it is brought under sub-
jection to the Divine Command.
The reason I gave the use of the Ray or Flame
through the hand is because the minds of some are
attuning more rapidly than the atomic structure of
the body is being raised. This activity of passing the
hand over the body will maintain and sustain that
equalization of the quickening of the mind and the
raising of the atomic structure to its balancing point.
I am so happy and willing to give every Assistance
to the students, as are Others, but there are certain
hounds beyond which We may not go because of the
Self-conscious advancement of the students which they
must do for themselves.
However, every one of them has everything by which
to be encouraged; but again let Me urge them that
at no time may they divide the attention of the “I AM
Presence.” To do this means that you are releasing
the stream of energy and giving power to outside
things and simply delaying your progress.
I speak from experience. It is not possible to divide
the attention, for it must all be given to the “I AM
Presence” in order to go beyond a certain point of
I do not wish to bring any shock to the students
under this Radiation, but I must speak the Truth, that
if those beloved students who have been brought under
this Radiation are not able to hold their attention en-
tirely upon the “I AM Presence, ” it will close the door
to Our Assistance to them for a long time. This need
not be done if the students will follow the direction,
make the sincere effort every time the attention
wanders off, bring it back with firm determination
and say: ‘7 give all power to the 7 AM Presence* which
7 AM’; and I refuse with determination acceptance
to anything else ever again. ”
I wish to prepare the students that there will come
the time when they may not be sustained by Our
Messengers, but must rely on their own ability to hold
with such a firm grip upon the “I AM Presence” that
they will always receive Its Mighty, Sustaining Power.
It is useless and a mistake for any student after
months of Instruction to each day, or every few days,
allow himself to be thrown into a sense of depression
or doubt of the Inner Power or his ability to apply
It. This childish attitude of mind will in time shut the
door if it is not discontinued.
Each student should take his positive stand the mo-
ment discord of any kind attempts to enter into the
mind, and assert his Dominion by declaring: “ T AM*
the Almighty Governing Presence of my Life and my
world, and T AM* the Peace, Harmony and Courage,
Self-sustained, which carries me serenely through
everything that confronts me.”
It is so important that the students have the benefit
of the manuscripts that We must discontinue the In-
struction until they are completed, for according to
their ability to accept that which is illustrated in the
manuscripts will the “Great Judge” determine what
shall next be given. We may not under any cir-
cumstances take the student beyond the point where
he is well fortified.
I must say, for the protection of the students, that
should certain phenomena manifest about them, to
be calm, poised, and unmoved by it at all times and
to go serenely along, not allowing their attention to
be held by it; for it is not unlikely in this number of
students that some may have sufficiently generated
energy from past understanding at a certain point to
produce certain phenomena. In such a case they
should always take the firm stand: ” ‘I AM* the
Governing Presence of this, utilizing it in its highest
expression and use.”
You see, in all this amount of Instruction that has
been given, it is but a fragment upon which the stu-
dent must build. The student must always watch for
ideas from within himself upon which to build his
The first premise for every student on earth who
wishes to attain permanent achievement is to first re-
mind himself that: “ ‘I AM’ the Presence and In-
telligent Activity.” This is the first principle and in
It he can never go astray.
I assure the beloved students that they need not
crave nor desire phenomena, for the Natural Law of
their Beings in their sustained progress will produce
abundant phenomenal proof as they are ready for it.
In this, mark you, I do not in anywise refer to the ap-
pearance of any of the Ascended Ones, for that is an
entirely different thing and is really not to be taken
as phenomenon of any kind.
I watched with great interest the Inner Activity of
the students, Tuesday and Wednesday, and it was very
gratifying to see the expansion of that Inner Light
within them as the Power of Love grew more intense.
It should be remembered by the students that when
they say “I AM, ” they are making the outer activity
a Mighty Magnet for the Light to reach and expand.
I think it would be very wise for each student to
take the attitude at this time, or in the beginning of
the use of both the Instruction and the manuscript:
“ ‘Great I AM Presence,’ take me within Thyself; there
instruct me and cause me to retain the Full Memory
of these Inner Instructions.”
As Messengers of the Light, this training is very
essential, but the idea should not in anywise cause
anxiety— or tension in the desire to retain, because
an attitude of that kind might easily close the outer
memory of the Inner experience.
I cannot help but smile to myself at the closeness
with which some of the students are coming to most
surprising things; but I trust they will always find
themselves poised and serene in whatever the ex-
perience is, knowing that: 44 4 I AM’ the One, Eternal,
Self -sustained Life in action,” and to forever remove
from their consciousness that there is such a condi-
tion as so-called death anywhere in the Universe.
The outer activity of the mind and world is a pass-
ing maya, shifting as the sands of the desert, and need
never cause anyone the slightest concern, for: 44 4 I AM’
the Eternal Life, knowing no beginning and never
finding an end.”
Out of the Heart of that Great Silence comes the
Ceaseless, Pouring Stream of Life of which each one
is an individualized part. That Life is you, Eternally,
Perfectly, Self-sustained, and the garments It clothes
Itself with are of but little consideration, until one
comes to the point of recognition wherein the attain-
ment has prepared him for the ‘‘Seamless Garment,”
Self-sustained, radiant with every prismatic color.
Then may one indeed rejoice in that Eternal Gar-
ment that is Ever- Radiant and Changeless, which has
removed him from the wheel of cause and effect and
has made him a Being of Cause only. That Cause is
the Radiance of Divine Love, ever pouring and evolv-
ing from Its Conscious, Self-poised, Radiant God-
Center— the Heart of the “I AM Presence”— which
is Eternal Youth and Beauty, the All-knowing
Presence, containing in Self-conscious action the past,
present and future— which after all, are but the One
Such is the eternal elimination of all time and space.
Then you find your world peopled with Perfect Be-
ings, your buildings decorated with choicest jewels;
you, standing in the center of your creation— the
“Jewel in the Heart of the Lotus” — Its petals your
Mighty Avenues of Its Perfect Activity.
Such is a humble picture of that which stands before
you, beckoning you into your Perfect, Eternal Home
You see, I feel that Glorious Radiance, and if each
one, especially the students, could center themselves
in the Presence of Divine Love and hold themselves
there firmly, what wonderful experiences would come
to them— if they would shut out the interference of
the outer activity of the mind.
For one to take the attitude that: “ 7 AM ’ the
Presence of Divine Love at all times” would do such
wonderful things. To use this Statement and feel it
would at all times close the door to the outer activities
of the mind.
The solution of every problem is always right at
hand because the ‘7 AM Presence” always holds
everything within It.
A demand is the impelling of the solution into ex-
pression. “I AM” is the Intelligent, Active Principle
within us, the Heart of our Beings, the Heart of the
planet and the Heart of the system.
I cannot refrain from reminding the students again,
for they should always know that whenever you say
“I AM,” you are releasing the One Almighty, In-
telligent Energy, Power and Self-sustained Element.
Keep at it, and you will come into a condition so
supreme, so wonderful.
When you are looking into the physical sun, you
are really looking into the Great Central Sun, the very
Heart of the “I AM Presence.”
You must take the unconditional stand with your
body that: “The *1 AM Presence’ governs this physical
body completely and compels it into obedience.” The
more attention you give your body , the more it is the
master , and the more it will demand and keep
demanding from you.
When the physical body is either chronically ill or
continually showing disturbance, it proves that it has
been given attention over a period of years to one
disturbance or another, and it will never improve until
one takes the positive attitude and whips it into
You can positively produce whatever you want in
your body if you will fix your attention upon the
Perfection of it — but do not let your attention rest on
For the Ascension: “ ‘I AM’ the Commanding
Presence.” Use this often, for it stills the outer activity
so you become centered in the Activity of Love.
The instant you feel something discordant, turn
away from it. You have the Scepter of Power in your
consciousness— now use it!
You are to follow Jesus’ command: “See no man
after the flesh.” It means exactly what it says:
recognize no human imperfection in thought , feeling ,
word or deed .
A very powerful thing to use in problems is to take
the simple consciousness: “God in me, the ‘I AM
Presence,’ come forth! Govern and solve this situation
harmoniously.” It would do wonders. The whole thing
is to instantly draw forth the “I AM Presence” and
set It to work.
Jesus said: “Ask, and ye shall receive.”
“Seek, and ye shall find.”
“Knock: it shall be opened unto you.”
Say to your Divine Self: “See here, God! come forth
and take care of this.” God wants you to set Him to
work. This releases a flood of the God-Energy, In-
telligence and Substance which flows forth to do the
BENEDICTION : Thou Mighty, Commanding,
“I AM Presence”! assert Thy Dominion within the
heart and consciousness of each student! Command
the Life Activity to express Its fullness! Set Thyself as
a Guard at the door of the mind of each one, so he
admits only that which is helpful and harmonious.
Bless each one with that power to hold fast and go
forth to harmonious attainment. We thank Thee.
Cha Ara, his Mother, Nada and Saint Germain were work-
ing very intensely on the expanding of the Inner Light within
each one who was here. We wished that the students might
see from the Inner standpoint. It would be an experience never
to be forgotten.
