Outpourings of St. Germain # 7 - 10
II. A Time of Awakening
"The time has arrived and many of humanity are rapidly awakening and they must in some way be made to understand that they have lived again in hundreds and sometimes thousands of lives, each time in a new physical body.
The re-embodiment is the activity of human growth that gives the individual an opportunity to reestablish a balance in conditions that he has consciously caused to be thrown out of balance. It is but one activity of the Law of Compensation, cause and effect or what might be called an automatic balancing process governing all forces everywhere in the universe.
The right understanding of this law gives one the explanations of many conditions in human experience which otherwise seem wholly unjust. It is the only logical explanation for the infinite complexities and experiences of human creation and reveals the operation and the law upon which all manifestation rests. It makes one know that there is no such thing as chance or accident. All is under direct, exact, and perfect law.
Every experience in consciousness has a form of cause and in that same instant is the cause of future effect. If a man has injured a woman in one life, he is certain to be reincarnated into a feminine form and pass through a similar experience until he has realizes and experience that which he has caused another to endure. The same thing be true if a woman be unjust or injures a man.
This is the only way by which one is compelled or rather compels himself to experience both the cause and effect of everything which he generates in this world. The individual can create and experience whatsoever he will in his own world but if he chooses to do that which causes others to experience discord, then he compels himself to go through a similar condition until he understands what the effect of his own creation is upon the rest of life IN the universe."
"Constructive desire is the expanding activity within life for it is only in this way that greater and greater ideas, activities, and accomplishment are pushed through expression in the outer world of substance and form. Within every right desire is the power of its fulfillment. Man is the Son of God, he is commanded by the Father to choose how he will direct the life energy and what quality he wishes his fulfilled desire to express. This he must do for free will is his birthright.
It is the function of the outer activity of the
intellect to guide all outer expansion into constructive
channels. This is the purpose and duty of the
outer self to all. The great light of God energy
used only for the gratification of the sense desires
[is] the habit of the mass of mankind. [This]
destructive use is always without exception followed by
inharmony, weakness, failure, and destruction.
The constructive use of desire is the conscious direction of this limitless God energy by wisdom. All desire directed by wisdom always carries some kind of blessing to the rest of Creation. All desire directed by the God within goes forth with the feeling of love and blesses always."
#9 Emotional Discipline
“The truth of life is you cannot desire that which is not possible of manifestation somewhere in the universe. The more intense the feeling within the desire, the more quickly it will be attained. However, if one is foolish enough to desire something that will injure another part of God’s Children or any other part of his Creation, then that person will pay the penalty in discord or failure somewhere in his own life’s experience.
It is very important to realize fully that God’s intent for every one of his Children is abundance of every good and perfect thing.
He created perfection and endowed his Children with exactly the same power. They can create and maintain perfection also and express God dominion over the Earth and all that is therein. Mankind was originally created in the image and likeness of God. The only reason that all do not manifest this dominion is because they do not use their divine authority, that with which each individual is endowed, and by which he is intended to govern his world. Thus, they are not obeying the Law of Love by pouring out peace and blessing to all Creation.
This comes about through their failure to accept and acknowledge themselves, temples of the Most High Living God and hold this acknowledgement with eternal recognition. Humanity in its present seeming limitation of time, space, and activity is in the same condition [as] a person in need would be to whom someone held out a hand full of money. If the needy one did not step forward and accept the money held out to him, how in the world could he ever have the benefit, which it could bring?
The mass of mankind is in exactly this state of consciousness today and will continue in it until they accept the God within their hearts as owner, giver, and doer of all the good that has ever come into their lives and world. The Personal Self of every individual must acknowledge completely and unconditionally that the human or outer activity or consciousness has absolutely nothing of its own even the energy by which one recognizes the Great God within is radiated into the Personal Self by the Great God Self.
Love and praise of their Great Self within and the attention maintained and focused upon the truth, health, freedom, peace, supply, or any other thing that you may desire for right use presently held in your conscious thought and feeling will bring them into your use and world as surely as there is a great Law of Magnetic Attraction in the universe.
The eternal Law of Life is that whatever you think and feel, you bring into form. Where your thought is; there you are for you are your consciousness and whatever you meditate on, you become.
When one allows his mind to dwell upon thoughts of hate, condemnation, lust, envy, jealousy, criticism, fear, doubt, or suspicion and allows these feelings of irritation to generate within him; he will certainly have discord, failure, and disaster in his mind, his body, and world. As long as he persists in allowing his attention to be held by such thoughts weather they be about nations, persons, places, conditions, or things; he is absorbing those activities into the substance of his mind, body, and his affairs. In fact he is compelling, forcing them into his experience.
All these discordant activities reach the individual in his world through his thought and feeling; [thought] often flashes before one is aware of [it] in the outer consciousness, which he might use to control it and this kind of experience should teach him how great is the energy within his many creations which has accumulated through habit.
The activity of feeling is the most unguarded point of human consciousness. It is the cumulative energy by which thoughts are propelled into the atomic substance and thus do thoughts become things. I tell you the need of guarding the feeling cannot be emphasized too strongly for control of emotions plays the most important part of anything in life in maintaining balance in the mind, health in the body, success, and accomplishment in the affairs and world of the Personal Self of every individual. Thoughts can never become things until they are clothed with feeling.
The Holy Ghost or the Holy Spirit is the feeling side of life, God, the activity of divine love or the Mother expression of deity. This is why sin against the Holy Ghost is referred to as that which brings such great distress because any discord in the feeling breaks the Law of Love, which is the Law of Balance, Harmony, and Perfection.
The greatest crime in the universe against the Law of Love is humanity’s almost ceaseless sending forth of any kind of irritable and destructive feeling.
One day the race will come to realize and recognize that the sinister, destructive forces manifesting on this Earth and in its atmosphere, [here] generated, mark you, by human thought and feeling, [that] have only entered the affairs of individuals or nations through the lack of control in the emotions of everyone’s daily personal experience. Even destructive thoughts cannot express themselves as actions, events or become physical things except by passing through the world of feeling for it is in this phase of manifestation that the activity of coalescing the physical atom upon the thought forms takes place.
As the noise from a sudden explosion shocks the nervous system of one who hears it, [it] sets up [a] trembling sensation in the cellular structure of the body. In exactly the same way does the flares of irritated feeling shock, disturb, [and] disarrange the finer substance in the atomic structure of the mind, body, and world of the person who sends them out consciously or unconsciously, intentionally or unintentionally.
Discordant feeling is the producer of what we call disintegration, old age, lack of memory, and every other failure [in] the world of human experience. The effect upon the body structure is the same as that produced upon a building if the mortar holding the bricks together were to receive repeated shocks [and] in each day those were to be increased. This continued shock would shake apart the particles composing the mortar, the building would collapse into [a] chaotic mass, and the form be no more.
That is what mankind is constantly doing to the atomic structure of the human body.
To give expression to the discordant thoughts and feelings in one’s self is the course of least resistance, and the habitual activity of the underdeveloped, undisciplined, and willful individual who refuses to understand the law of his own being and bring the Personal Self, which is but his instrument of expression into obedience to that law.
He who cannot or will not control his thoughts and feelings is in a bad way for every door of his consciousness is wide open to the disintegrating activities thrown off by other minds and the emotions of personalities. It takes neither strength, wisdom, nor training to give way to unkind destructive impulses and the full grown human beings that do this are but children in their development of self control.
It is a blight upon the life of mankind that so little control of the emotions is taught humanity from the cradle to the grave. Attention to this particular point is the greatest need in the Western world today. It is easy to give way to discordant thoughts and feelings and activities. Feelings to be sure because the mass of mankind is submerged as it were by environment and association entirely created by themselves.
The individual through his control of the outer consciousness must make the effort to rise out of this condition by his own free will in order to transcend these limitations permanently and no one can hope to rid his life and world of misery, discord, and destruction until he leashes his own thought and feeling. In this way he refuses to let Light flowing through his mind and body become qualified by the discord resulting from every little disturbing occurrence in the world about him. At first such discipline does require determined continuous effort for the thoughts and feelings of 95% of humanity run as uncontrolled and free as a little tramp dog.
However, no matter how much effort it takes to bring these two activities under control it is worth any amount of time and energy expended and no real permanent dominion of one’s life and world can take place without it. It will be our pleasure and privilege to teach you the use of these high laws and their application will enable you to release true wisdom and bring about all perfection.
The first step to the control of yourself is the stilling of all outer activity of both mind and body 15-30 minutes at night before retiring and in the morning before beginning the day’s work. Using the following exercise will do wonders for anyone who will make the necessary effort.
For the second step make certain of being undisturbed and after becoming very still picture and feel your body enveloped in a dazzling white Light. The first five minutes while holding this picture recognize and feel intensely the connection between your outer self and your Mighty God within focusing your attention upon the Heart Center visualizing it as a Golden Sun.
The next step is the acknowledgement, ‘I now joyously accept the fullness of the Mighty God Presence, pure Christ.’ Feel the great brilliancy of light and intensify it in every cell of your body for at least 10 minutes longer.
Then close the meditation by the command, ‘I am a Child of the Light. I love the Light, I serve the Light, I live in the Light, I am protected, illumined, supplied, and sustained by the Light and I bless the Light.’
Remember always one becomes that on which he meditates and since all things have come forth from the Light, Light is the supreme perfection and control of all things.
Contemplation and adoration of the Light compels illumination to take place in the mind, health, and strength in order to come into the body and peace, harmony, and success manifest in the affairs of every individual who will really do it and seeks to maintain it.
All the way down [through] the centuries in every age under every condition we are told by all who have expressed the greater accomplishments of Light that the Light is supreme, the Light is everywhere, and in the Light exists in all things.
That truth is just as true today as it was a million years ago. As far back as there is any record of humanity, the wise and great ones of all ages were portrayed with a radiation of Light about them emanating from the head and body itself.
This Light is real just as real as the electric lights in your homes. The day is not far distant when machines will be constructed to reveal the emanation of Light about every individual to the physical sight of anyone who cares to observe it. Such a machine will also show the contamination or discoloration that becomes a cloud around the Light of God by which the Personal Self generates through discordant thought and feeling. This and this only is the way in which the energy of the great lifestream becomes polluted.
If you will practice this exercise faithfully and feel it in every atom of your mind and body with deep, deep intensity, you will receive abundant proof of the tremendous activity, power, and perfection that abides and is forever active within the Light. When you have experienced this even a short time, you would need no further proof. You would become your own proof; the Light is the Kingdom, enter into it and be at peace. Return to the Father’s House. After the first 10 days of using this exercise, it is well to do it three times a day morning, noon, and night.
We often hear the complaint; oh I cannot give all that time. To any who are of that opinion, I wish to say simply this; [consider] the time the average person spends in criticizing, condemning, and blaming people, conditions, and things for not being something other than they are; for this recognition and use of Light will make Heaven manifest on Earth for the individual who dares to try and has determination enough to maintain it nothing is impossible the Light never fails.
The Light is God’s way of creating and maintaining order, peace, and perfection throughout his Creation. Every human being on this Earth can have all the time he wants in which to do this when his desire to do it is intense enough, the intensity in the desire itself will reorder the world of the people, conditions, and things to help you provide that time if he earnestly wishes to use it for his upward climb. No person in the world is an exception to that law for the intense desire to do anything constructive when it becomes intense enough is the God power that releases the energy necessary to create and express the thing desired.
Everyone has the supreme privilege of contact with the all-powerful Presence of God. It is the only power that ever did, does now, or ever will raise the Personal Self in its world above Earthly discord and limitation.
My beloveds try this with great determination and know God in you is your certain victory.”
#10 The Gift
“Eternal youth he (Saint Germain) explained is the flame of God abiding in the body of man, the Father’s gift of himself to his creation. Youth and beauty of both mind and body can only be kept permanently by those individuals who are strong enough to shut out discord. And whoever does that can and will express perfection and maintain it.
Where peace, love, and light do not abide within the thoughts and feelings of the human being no amount of physical effort can possibly keep the outer self expressing youth and beauty. These exist eternally within the God Flame, which is the Divine Self that is in every individual. Whatever discord the outer self allows to flash through thought and feeling is that instant stamped upon the flesh of the physical body. Eternal youth and beauty are self-created and forever self-existent within the flame of God’s light within every human being. This is God’s plan for manifesting his perfection into the world of form and maintaining it forever.
Youth, beauty, and perfection are attributes of love, which the God principle is continually pours forth into its creation. Within every individual is placed the power and means for maintaining and increasing that perfect ever-expanding activity of creation.
The power of accomplishment is the energy of the God Self in each human being born into the world. It is always active every moment in your mind, body, and world. There is no instant in which this mighty energy is not flowing through all individuals. You are privileged to qualify it as you please, through the command of your own free will through consciously directed thought and feeling.
Thought is the only thing in the universe that can create vibration and though vibration you qualify this ever-flowing energy with what you desire to have manifest in your life and world. This limitless, intelligent, radiant energy is flowing ceaselessly through your nervous system and is the eternal life and vitality in the bloodstream coursing through your veins. It is an all-powerful, omnipresent, intelligent activity given [to] you by the Father, the God principle of life, to be consciously directed according to your free will.
Real intelligence, which uses everything constructively, comes only from within the God principle, the Flame of Life and is not only from the intellect. Real intelligence is wisdom or God knowledge and this does not and cannot think wrong thoughts. Wrong thoughts come only from impressions made upon the intellect from the world outside the individual. If individuals would discriminate between their own thought that is thoughts from within their own God Flame and the suggestions thrown off by other people’s intellects and the evidence of the senses would consider appearances only, they would able to avoid all discordant activities and conditions in the world of experience.
The light from within, one’s own God Flame, is the criteria, the standard of perfection by which all thoughts and feelings that reach us through the five senses should be tested. No one can keep his thoughts and feelings qualified with perfection until he goes to the source of perfection for that quality and perfection only abides within the God Flame.
This is the individual’s need for meditation upon and communion within the light of God within himself. Pure life essence will not only give and sustain eternal youth and beauty within the body but will enable you to maintain perfect balance between your God Self and the outer or personal self. In fact this pure life energy is the power, which the outer self uses to hold its connection with this divine source, the God Self.
In reality these two are one except when the intellect or the outer activity of the mind, the sense-consciousness, accepts imperfection inharmony, incompleteness, or thinks itself a creation apart from the all-pervading one Presence of life. If the sense-consciousness thinks itself something separate from God perfection, then that condition is established unto it for what the sense-consciousness thinks into its world the world turns to it.
When one lets an idea of imperfection or separation from God occupy his attention and therefore his mind, a condition corresponding to that begins to express in his body and world. This causes the person to feel himself an entity apart from Source. The moment he thinks himself separated from God he thinks his life, intelligence, and power has a beginning and an end.
Life always has been, is now, and always will be. No one can really destroy life. Through various activities of the mental and physical world form can be disintegrated or temporarily demolished by the consciousness of the individual but the consciousness of the individual is external and can control all substance everywhere in manifestation when the God life within is acknowledged as the knower, giver, and doer of all good in creation.
I tell you truth when I tell you there is only one source of all good kind. The conscious recognition of this fact acknowledged by the outer activity in the mind not two or three times a day but every few moments all day long no matter what the outer self is doing and this maintained will enable anyone to express his perfect freedom and dominion over all things human.
To most people the above sounds difficult for they have lived so many centuries in the belief that they are beings apart from God while every instant of every day they are using God life, God energy, God substance, and God activity in everything they think and do without realizing it. However, it requires the conscious admitting of this fact in the outer activity of the mind and constructive connection to release its full power through the personal self.
Recognition conscious direction and constructive use of the God energy maintained within one’s self at all times is the way of perfection mastery and dominion over all things on Earth including the conscious control of all natural forces. The instruction I have been giving you will erase completely all false beliefs if maintained. The rapidity with which it is accomplished will depend on how continuously persistently and deeply you feel and associate with your God Self.
In the attainment of mastery or adeptship the conscious control of all force or the manipulation of substance all depends first upon of the acknowledgment of your individual God Self. Second upon perfect calmness of feeling under all circumstances and third one must be passed all temptation of misusing power. The stilling of all emotions at the command of the conscious will is imperative and the demand for it in the adept is unconditional if dominion is to be attained.
It does not mean the repression of discord within one’s self at any time but is a stilling and harmonizing of feelings no matter what the circumstances are which surround the mind or body of the student. Such control is not an easy thing for the humanity in the Western world because the temperament of most people in the Occident is sensitive, emotional, and impulsive. This characteristic is energy of tremendous power. It must be controlled, held in reserve and released only through conscious direction for the accomplishment of something constructive. Until the waste of energy is checked and completely governed, the individual cannot and newer will make permanent progress.
The student often asks if one reaches a point while still on the path of attainment where he rises above the use of affirmation? When on individual sincerely uses affirmations he brings about full acceptance of that truth of whatever he affirms for its use is but to focus the attention of the outer mind so steadily upon the truth that he accepts it fully in his feelings because feelings are actual God energy release, which manifests the truth affirmed.
The continued use of affirmation brings one to a point where he has such a deep realization of the truth in anything he affirms that he is no longer conscious of it as an affirmation. One uses an affirmation, mantra, or prayer because he desires something made manifest. Right desire is the deepest form of prayer. Thus by the use of affirmation the student raises his outer self into the full acceptance of his truth that generates the feeling by which it becomes a thing manifest. In this deep acceptance comes the manifestation for through concentration the spoken word begins to cause instantaneous activity. Our gratitude to you St. Germain for all we are receiving. Thank you, thank you, thank you."
