What role did Sports figures lead to the Ascended Masters?
As a boy is used to collect baseball cards and cut out covers of my Sports heroes from magazines and fill the walls of my youthful room, i shared with my brother. I liked to look up at those walls and think about, who these athletes were. In my world as a boy I thought often about having to become an adult someday and dreamed about what my part might be.
Kids today are really no different , except perhaps their icons and examples are rap stars and celebrities. Sports are still popular except, I don’t remember having to deal with bathing suit issues so much back them. It seems sports used to be a safe place for a young boy to explore his hopes and adventures.
It used to be a sanctuary for the development of a boy, even girls. Not anymore.
Nowadays you can hardly pick up a magazine or go to an Internet sports site where they are already shoving some type of sexual image right in your face. It’s different. I think its sad. Even today as i’ve grown up i still feel a loss of that innocence or being able to go find some comfort in the flame that sports can provide. It seems to be everywhere.
Oftentimes i will read the sports pages in newspapers and right side by side with the articles are ads for strip clubs. Its no wonder the athletes themselves often get in trouble at these places. I hope it doesn’t seem prudish and i can’t say these things don’t have their pull in any of us, but it just goes to show there are fewer and fewer places in our culture and society that consider the purity of consciousness. Maybe boys haven’t really moved on they’ve just become Men who have moved their attention to other realms of “Sport”, so to speak. It hard to fathom an image of what a woman really is much less an idea that the soul can pursue, like the image of the divine.
I’m saying this because a lot of things can come before our sense of finding our course, our attunment with Life and the inner things that matter too.
In a way I’m still trying to summon some inspiration from the pictures i hang on the walls. I’ve replaced my boyhood idols with pictures of the Ascended Masters like Saint Germain, Jesus and Mother Mary. I don’t think it’s such a bad idea. Maybe we could have Ascended Masters trading cards and on the back of the card instead of having the statistics of some baseball player we could have the Virtues and lessons espoused by a Saint or the healing powers of An Archangel. Do we think this funny? We need examples of virtue so desperately in our society and culture, we can not even recognize the need for it. When i drive a limousine and we take out minors, it’s almost frightening what has degregated in some of our youth. I cannot remember the youth of my period being so brazen, so willing to disregard common respect in people. Yea i think we need cards and magazine covers and DVD’s of the majesty and power of Angels and cosmic beings. But is has to be something practical, someway that we are going to reach people that life is not aimless, it is not without responsibility or consequence. It’s not fearfulness, because that has proven to have little effect on getting people to shift, alone.
Maybe it could be the power of story, of the great quest for life, the sense of Victory, of hope, of overcoming and the tremendous inspiration and purpose life can be when we see it as a path and as journey with great adventure. We could do more to inspire our youth, even if there is just a seed in the mind that we are a part of realm of a reality not just physical. Then we introduce the Ascended Master trading cards and we find out and explore the mysteries of life, like Frodo shows in the Lord of the Rings. It’s not all fantasy, principles can be greatly taught.
It would certainly inspire a different view of conversation at the least.
Recently a friend was discussing the outrageous examples and lengths that advertisers are prepared to go to sell us on some idea of their products. This is especially ridiculous during the times of the Super Bowl, viewed by billions?
We thought wouldn’t it be great if a “commercial” came on that actually inspired some sense of cosmic perspective to all these people.
We even had a vision of a message
First we show a football game played magnificently before thousands at a stadium and the images are captured in the thrills and the exaltations of the fierce battle for Victory done on the field. We hear the sounds, the throngs of people rising in their seats, the intense hopes, the terrific surges of energy, as a captivating play unfolds. The athletes like beautiful, victorious, striving warriors, race magnificently towards their intended game winning score.
But instead of seeing this climatic finish, the “viewer” comes before the “screen of life,” a panoramic insight into the millions of images of life itself. The thoughts of people… their hopes, their fears. Countless numbers of people appear, sight and sound and feeling become one. Scenes of families, of nations, of birth, of old age, of beauty, the power of nature, everything that is and has been.
Gradually the sense of the Individual selves become a larger Energy and the whole of humanity, of consciousness itself, begins to ascend above the playing field of life.
It rises above the stadium until all the attention of those millions of people merges with a far greater sense of a Universal awareness and then, in rides, into focus, a message, a caption… illuminated and before the plain sight of all, and it says;
THERE’S FOOTBALL…And then, There is, the GOAL OF LIFE
So it just hangs there right alongside these two million dollar productions about Cheetos and talking frogs and all this really silly nonsense and its just perfect.
But you know what. There are all these limitations of what type of advertisers can actually appear on a Super Bowl commercial. Think about it, ever seen a spiritual message on one of these events, even a glimpse of real consciousness, accept if it is some hint at technology and that usually links intelligence to some computer or machine.
So that becomes the stake that anyone who really desires to find their attunement with the source of life, of their inner being, of their quest to know God must develop an intense desire to overcome much. We have to make all these decisions, daily, and hourly to bring our energy back to that point of consciousness.
So i began to look at my home filled with these pictures of Spiritual beings, images and ideas that i hope have captured an essence of the Divine and i wonder am i still like that little boy that is trying to find my reality in a part of life i admire, i want to believe in, but what have I become?
So that little questions becomes the search for truth and it’s very interesting because very soon thereafter i “find” or come across this idea, first to look for this manuscript, that contains some words from Saint Germain delivered through one of his messengers or prophets.
For those that don’t know Saint Germain was in the life of Jesus as Joseph, the father of Jesus, so there is very much an affinity with these two representatives of God’s Spiritual Kingdom.
So right there Saint Germain is admonishing us that, how can we put pictures up of the Saints and the Masters and Jesus as what, “some adornment to our outer ego?”
And it dawns on me right there about that passage in scripture, “Faith without works is dead.” So in really a universally broad way of truth it really matters little what your religion is that you believe, but if we are lukewarm or not really willing to follow in the way of the example of Christ or the path of the Christ Consciousness we are really hardly better off that almost no spiritual path at all.
Somewhere in my being, it became clear how easily, we could depart from the grace of hearing God’s word or direction in our lives. It is not automatic that we just get it back. It takes work. It also takes energy, the application of drawing out in a devotional way the process we can begin to redirect our energy, which can also be termed our attention and give it back to our higher self, our God awareness.
Two things came to my mind, one was that i needed to make an effort to connect with the flame of Jesus and secondly was how i could re-apply myself in the rituals of devotion, part of which is prayer and mantras taught as 7th ray rituals (see Violet Flame Q & A, from this site) from Saint Germain, the scientific aspect of prayer and the use of the Violet Flame, which regardless of what Christian affiliation presents is an aspect of the Holy Spirit. In other words it works because of the graces of the Holy Spirit, not because it is or is not, a recommendation of a religious doctrine.
The other preparation was the necessity to enter into a spirit of self correction, even for those that can handle it some act of penance, which really proceeds a desire of the soul to makes amends and enter into atonement, which in progressive revelation through the Masters means finding at-one-ment, with…GOD.
So there has to be the spirit of the desire for self-correction or surrender to God’s will, before we might begin to see evidence in our lives, this law of love really can work for us.
Which brings up another misnomer or inaccuracies that many people who try and lump those they describe as New Age’rs, is that all those who are categorized as New Age are of the same belief. In fact just as there are devoted Christians or Christian Mystics who can accept the precepts of re-incarnation and karma, there are present individuals within the schools of New Thought, who also firmly place in the center of their understanding, the mainstays of traditionally held Christian teachings.
One, which bleeds through, is the awareness of the pitfalls to the soul that becomes carnally minded.
Again, this is an important premise, because carnality does not just mean indulgences in the appetites of the flesh or only the temporal experiences we seek after, to the avoidance of inner fulfillment. It also means becoming aware of that aspect of ourselves, which we may have accepted as our individuality. Request prophetic word Which could very much be in conflict with our highest good or the potential of our Soul to accomplish this.
So without this understanding, the carnal self can actually overpower the soul, even to its detriment. Where do we think self-sabotage comes from? So the soul very much needs help from the effects of carnal mindedness. That is why we find help in the form of Spirit and God’s perfecting energies, personified by those beings of Light, like Jesus that have overcome, the carnal minded or synthetic self. This wholeness is also held in the auras of Angels, and Ascended Beings and of course the path of Light itself.
Now, one of the choices we can make is to really understand the Mission of Jesus Christ, which in essence is also the same as Saint Germain or any being of light that has progressed in the integration of Cosmic law and salvation (self-elevation) of the soul required for unification with Spirit.
In another clarification Jesus’ mission was to establish the EXAMPLE that all souls who desire to become one with Spirit, the Universal Father, must accomplish. No where did Jesus’ true teaching circumvent that each individual soul must gain his or her own mastery by free will application, striving and love the path of overcoming that leads to her Victory.
