The Word of the Ascended Masters is the ultimate Authority in any question relating to Truth.
The Name "Maitreya" means "Lord of Love". Maitreya embodied upon Earth millions of years ago as a volunteer (guardian) from the planet Venus responding to beloved Sanat Kumara's pledge to raise our planet's humanity up out of the degenerate state to which it had descended. Maitreya reached His greatest attainment in the Light of God while embodied with Lord Himalaya. Beloved Maitreya enfolded Jesus in His Cosmic Flame to assist Jesus in manifesting the Christ Consciousness.
"If you cannot be the example, do not teach the words . . . "
"The love of God is truly the love of Life. The love of Life is truly the extension of your striving as the true Initiate on the Path. Beloved, I - Maitreya, have known the trials and the tribulations of the day to day activities that you find yourself engaged in. I have known the concerns of your heart - of how you will hold fast to the Law and yet accomplish all that you are called upon to fulfill, all of the daily labors.
"Let us speak of the love of labor, not simply the work that one may do to supply the needs of their families, of their self, but of the striving on the Path. Is it a drudgery? Does it take every erg of energy to pick up your foot and place it into the next step to accomplish what you perceive the need of the hour?
"It is obvious to your mind what I AM about to say. Of course the labor can be light, of course the labor can be joyous - if there is love of God. But what of love of labor? How do you manifest the fullness of the love of that which brings you discomfort, that which makes you tired, creates hunger after a long day's journey? What is it then that would spur you to love that which makes you ready to go home, shut the door behind the world and still yourself till the new day?
"Do you run from the Dharma? Do you run from that which you are called upon to do, or do you run to greet the day with a renewed Spirit, an understanding heart, and a love for Life?
"No it isn't easy when you are in the physical octave and there is the gravitational pull and weight on your person. And yes, there are times when it is more difficult to pick up the foot and place it before you. But where of the joy and the love for the Opportunity?
"Many do not understand that in their daily work, in their daily labors, is the Opportunity to learn. There is no labor that does not give you a new perspective of how to master the God Qualities you desire to have become a full and complete part of every aspect of your life. The labor does not have to be a drudgery when one looks at this as an Opportunity to hone and to finely tune all of the skills of the Spirit into the matter plane.
"Many who have had many embodiments of leisure did not accomplish as much in those embodiments spiritually as they have in those where they have had to toil the fields, cut the wood, plow the fertile grounds. For in plowing the fertile grounds, the fertile Christ Consciousness was able to move into Action. As the muscles were flexed, there was not the putting off for another day to receive the Enlightenment of the Christ. Many times in the fatigue of the physical body, it is the Opportunity for your Christ Self to move into Action when you take the rest that the physical body so needs, and you sit in contemplation, in meditation. First you think it is to rest the body, and before you know it, you have engaged in a more complete Rejuvenation in the Light of your God Presence.
"Your Holy Christ Self would come into Action in all of the activities of your life to bring greater Joy and greater Love into the very smallest of the activities of your life - if you would accept and know that this is so.
"How does knowing accomplish the feat? I tell you, beloved hearts, where the consciousness goes, there is an engaging in a reinforcement of the Light of your God Presence. When that engagement is guided by the Christ Mind, there is the fulfillment of Love in all aspects of your life. When you place your attention fully and completely throughout your day on the Light of your God Presence, it is a complete and automatic invitation for the Release of that Light through your activities - to guide them, to guard them, to make the footstep lighter, to allow you to return home at the end of the day - not simply wanting to shut out the world - but wanting to run to give gratitude at the altar, to have the meditations on the Spirit uninterrupted by worldly activities, for the renewing of your Spirit and your Light.
"'These seem to be so practical' you say. 'Why, Maitreya, would you come and discourse on this matter?'
"Because, beloved ones, how much of your day is given to worldly activities? How much of your time and energy do you devote to preparing for all that is necessary to maintain the physical? And how much time do you spend in contemplation on God?
"So if there is the necessity of the spending of so much time in the physical activities of the Earth, why not bring God into that activity? Why not lower into the physical plane all Aspects of the Light of God, bring Joy into the Earth, bring Joy and Love into your labor?
"This is what is meant by 'Heaven on Earth'. It is not going to be some pristine cycle and time that an Ascended Master will wave a wand and suddenly the Earth will change. Your lifestyles, your habits, your surroundings will change, beloved ones, as you are able to bring the Manifestation of your God Presence into the physical octave.
"There have been devotees of the Light for many aeons who have tried all manner of approaches to the integration of Light on Terra. There have been those who have gone off to the caves in the mountains, have sat for many, many hundreds of years barely sustaining the physical body, but holding fast to the Spiritual Planes. What did they accomplish? Do you know?
"There was a certain balance held for the planet. There was a certain Release of Light relative to their activities - and it was necessary.
"But has it brought the solutions to hunger? Has it brought the solutions to war? Has it brought the need of the hour to the striving families who feel very pulled apart by all of the demands upon everyone's attention? This is not simply something that is isolated to any one country or one people. This is a planetary problem, beloved hearts, and it is necessary for the very practical application of the Law to be understood.
"Labor is an Opportunity, not a hindrance. Right now today on the planet, most individuals have greater amounts of time available to them to place their attention on God than ever before since the past Golden Ages. This is due to the release of many of the technologies into the physical by the Ascended Master Octave for just that purpose: so that the students of the Light would have more of the time necessary to prepare in the Spiritual Work toward the Ascension.
"However there are those who have not used that time wisely and have squandered that time. There are those who have not known when to stop the work of the world and do the Work of God. And there are those who have gotten so caught up in the work of the world, they have forgotten God completely and their work has been all-encompassing in their lives - and they wonder: 'Where is the Comfort Flame of the Holy Spirit? Where is the love of wife, of family, of home, of country? It's all so dim and in the far past.'
"And yet, beloved ones, it hasn't gone anywhere. It is all right there within the grasp. But that individual has chosen to ignore it - in the 'ignore-ance' of the Law.
"Do you see how subtle it could be? There may be those of you who have found yourself so caught up in a particular cycle of labor that you have forgotten to give the attention necessary in that day to God.
"As you are able to place your attention on God, the labor takes on a whole new perspective and you are able to engage in those times of work and toil with the renewed Spirit that lifts it up and it is no longer the secular labor - but becomes your Sacred Labor, for it is imbued with the Light of your heart - touching every aspect of your activity.
"You will find then, that those who you interact with, even if they do not know of your spiritual beliefs - and why should they; this is not the cycle and time. You are there to perform a work. You perform your work graciously, joyously, efficiently. And at the end of the day you leave with a glow on your face, and your co-workers say: 'How can this be? Why are they so joyous?' And you come again the next day and you enter the work place, and there is still that Joy on your face and in your step, and it remains to the end of the day - and on and on, day in and day out. What a mystery to the co-worker. 'How do I achieve this?' they say.
"When they ask, you may tell. For they will be ready to receive, and they will have seen the example of the Law. Setting the example as the true Initiate on the Path is the greatest Work that you can do.
"If you cannot be the example, do not teach the words - for they are hollow and without meaning. If you cannot imbue the Teaching with the Love of God from your own devotion to God - do not expound. For without the Love of God, again, the Teaching is empty.
"There are those who will become teachers of the world - of this Instruction. How will you teach it if you have not manifested Joy and Love in your labor. When each task you are called upon to do brings a fulfillment, and even if it seems to be menial, can you not hold in the vision of your third eye the Light of the Christ as you move forward? Can you not hold the Immaculate Concept for some calling that you desire to aspire to - in your third eye?
"This is not wishful thinking. This is transforming your life, your surroundings, your home, your relationships. This is how you practically apply the Law. You do not simply place your attention on it one day a week, or one hour of the day - but twenty-four hours a day every single day of every single year.
"There is always looming in the forefront, behind, at the top and the bottom of your consciousness - somewhere the thought: 'my Mighty I AM Presence', 'my Holy Christ Self', 'the Light of God', 'I love God', 'I love God in Life'. And as you extend that love, you will find the transmutation of all that has weighted the shoulders, all that has been the burden that you have carried. There will be a new sense of Joy, and you will find that you will no longer try to hold on to all that the world has to offer. For you have seen the Light of God, and you understand that the true Dharma is the love of God in Life - in all its aspects. When you manifest the specific talents that you have in the outpouring of the Love of God, you will be fulfilling your Mission. And your Mission having been completed will be the Opportunity to move on to Higher Realms of Service, and be Victorious in the Ascension.
"The Mission, as so depicted by so many stories that you have read and seen, will always be there until completed. It will not let go of you. You may try all manner of other works, but in some lifetime you will have to complete that Mission. Why not fill that Mission with Love? Why not have it be the Joy of giving of the Love of God?
"If you do not know where to begin, start with the first step - of every day setting aside a specific time where you are uninterrupted, where you have the quiet and the moment to receive the Light of God. It need not be elaborate. It need not be formal. But there must be silence. As you progress in this activity of preparing for the silence, you will be shown greater and greater Opportunities to have that Light fill all of your life.
"Do not keep it in a special place for only certain times when you feel that you must have reinforcement. Do not propose that it is only on a holiday or special occasions that you should be in devotion to God. If you are to manifest the fullness of Love in your world, it must be the foundation of your world.
"The Light of the Christ shines forth through you far more than you are aware. Do not hide it. Do not keep it locked up - but allow it to flow into all that you do, and you will be those Christed Ones that the planet is so hungry to receive. For you will have the True Message. You will have the True Light that will Light the world.
"Go in Peace, and go in the Labor of Love for God.

" . . . To begin again - to begin anew countless times - is better by far than to be 'blown off course', or to follow the whims of those blind leaders of the blind who refuse to hearken to the voice of conscience or to listen to the Voice of God! Truly, the laborers are few, and the harvest is plenteous. The time of threshing, the time of purging and of purification in this Golden Age is at the very door! Love, however, not fear, should be the welcome to draw men to the Harvest Festival with rejoicing. The cultivation of Joy in contemplation of Divine Possibilities, which are the blessed Hopes of Heaven, is a wise way of expanding the Light Activities of our dear chelas who understand the hourly need to bring the practicality of a mystical Christianity into daily action before men that they may see the good works of the children of Light, and desire to be like them! . . . "
through the Messenger, Mark Prophet, 1960, U.S.A. (4)
"The beloved Sanat Kumara asked Me to speak to you. I come to give you an understanding of the I AM Consciousness, the soul and the personality. I do this with the hope that you will grasp the differentiation among these three consciousnesses, so you may more quickly come to the awareness of that I AM Presence of which you have heard so much and which you are to embody for Our sake, as well as for the sake of all mankind.
"Beloved ones, visualize your mental bodies as lovely crystal cups offered to Me. See if you can hold your minds concentrated upon the pattern as I present it to you. Do this in love for Me.
"When first you were breathed from out of the Bosom of your God Parents, you came to an awareness and a realization of individual identity. You felt and thought 'I AM'. You found yourselves as Self-Conscious Beings and in every fiber and cell of your Electronic Presence you realized 'I AM Being'. As you lived in that innocence, sharing the I AM Consciousness of your God Parents, you knew that Primal Life was yours to use as you chose. You were Holy Innocents and Primal Life - exquisite, iridescent - became your possession, flowing into the Immortal Flame in your hearts.
"In this innocence you abided, and out of Primal Life you began to create according to that which you saw around you. You lived in a realm close to the Bosom of the Eternal, where there were no forms that were not exquisitely Beautiful - every Angel was shining in magnificence, every Master radiated the Dignity of a Christ. This consciousness of individual thought began to reproduce what it saw and you began to duplicate the Beauty which was around you. Timidly, at first, you created tiny cherubic forms and small temples. Then your feelings, enjoying Individualization and Power of Self-Conscious Creation, filled those tiny forms and they began to flow out from you into your aura and into the sphere in which you dwelt. You experienced the joy of individual creation, choosing through free-will what you would design.
"All through the Inner Spheres you passed, carried in the Train of one of the great Manus of some Root Race. Where you abided, you watched the magnificent Brothers and Sisters in those Realms who had developed far beyond your power to create, building stars and galaxies and moving the cosmos. You, in your own small way, using thought, would create thought patterns - and using feeling, would energize and then project these little forms.
"Thus you grew stronger, getting more mastery, using more of the I AM Consciousness, as you found your thought and feeling centers were obedient to your will. This was the State of Innocence, the 'Garden of Eden' consciousness wherein you were creators. However, here there was no need for discriminate use of your thought and feeling centers, for there was no destructive pattern, there was no form of temptation, there was nothing that could enter your consciousness or that you could externalize that was not beautiful.
"In this Realm of Perfection, many Beings have always abided. They never chose physical embodiment. They developed there, not desiring manifestation in the world of form. Some did choose incarnation on Earth. These were brave spirits who had passed through the Seven Spheres and, wanted to experiment with the use of Life in its fullness, developing greater dexterity by the drawing of the Powers of Creation through the thought and feeling centers into the lower atmospheres where it required more energy to mold substance into forms. Some applied for the opportunity to embody here on Earth. The closer you are to the Heart of God, the more quickly does Light Substance respond to thought and feeling and the easier it is to create. As you pass outward through the Seven Spheres, the vibrations of the Electronic Substance, which is obedient to thought and feeling, becomes slower and it takes more energy and more endeavor to create manifestations of a definite constructive design.
"Therefore, it was the bold and the strong, who descended through the Seven Spheres, developing the powers of conscious thought and feeling and resultant precipitation through freewill. These, then, who chose to embody on Earth, waited with their Manu until the Earth was habitable, to further develop the power of using thought to make a mold, using feeling to vitalize that mold and using the medium of a physical body to lower that mold into physical form. They asked that they might descend into a beautiful and refined Earth body and complete the cycle of externalization by molding Earth's substance into the pattern and form of the Divine Ideas received from God. Thus, the Manu of the First Root Race and its seven sub-races came forth, together with His pupils.
"The Earth was created so beautifully by the Seven Elohim, the Sun of Even Pressure in its center sent forth a Radiation that was visible as a soft glow beneath the grass, the flowers and the sea. The flowers were like flames and there was no decay. At the end of its season of expression, each manifestation just disappeared. Beloved Amaryllis, Virgo and beloved Neptune, Aries and all the Beings of Nature had created such a magnificent Earth, that when mankind first embodied upon it, there was little difference between the Earth (in its pure virgin state) and the beautiful Heavens. As the Builders of Form completed the formation of the Earth, lovely beings, using the I AM Consciousness, took Primal Life and, holding up the cup of their minds to their own Presences, received the Will of God in the form of ideas. Then they were able to mold those ideas into definite patterns and fill them with the feeling of Love. Then, using the flesh body, they externalized them in the physical appearance world by the power of precipitation. They built on Earth even as they had built in Heaven. The first Golden Age manifested the same Temples, the same exquisite Perfection that these beings knew at Inner Levels. There was not one in that Earth cycle who did not complete the course of evolution in perfect Harmony.
"The second cycle was the same. Follow Me closely, for I AM telling you scientific facts which apply to the conditions in which you stand today and it can raise you out of limitation!
"The blessed beings in the third cycle then came forth. In the use of the I AM Consciousness, the natural activity of each day was to tune into the Presence, because the outer self and the I AM Presence were one. Each individual 'tuned into' his own Presence and the Divine Ideas for that day flowed into his mind. So many magnificent Ideas poured forth in one day, that the outer self could not fulfill them all. The outer self chose those Ideas which would be of the greatest blessing to the universe and each day the outer self was about the Father's business. It was very beautiful!
"Then came the human consciousness - that in which you live today and which I AM trying to redeem, transmuting it back into your I AM Self again. Then the Earth offered to accept certain lifestreams who had not attained the development required to progress with their planets and systems. . . . "
" . . . The Earth and her evolutions, being of a more condensed (and therefore slower) vibratory action than the successive systems, offered to take on these 'laggards', hoping by contagion and by the pressure of purity within the Earth's people and their Guardian Spirits, to redeem these 'laggards' quickly. For a hundred years the priests and priestesses in the temples made continuous application for the protection of the consciousness of the masses of Earth's people against contagion through proximity, by which imperfect forms might register within their consciousness.
"Up to this time Earth's people had seen nothing less than Perfection. How did those 'laggards' get into the evolutions of Earth? They came through the pure bodies of women belonging to this perfect, harmonious, innocent evolution, who offered to give them an opportunity for incarnation on the Earth. These women were chosen because of their tremendous spiritual strength, so that the body elemental might have all the assistance possible and the heritage of good and evil in the consciousness of these egos might be mitigated, by the pressures of Light in the consciousness of the mother during the period of gestation and the early Earth life.
"These individuals were born. The parents of these 'laggards' performed one of the greatest sacrifices known in any galaxy, taking into their physical bodies, consciousness and homes, these individuals whose radiation was such that it has drawn the Earth to this present condition today. Now, what happened? Here is the point where you left the I AM Consciousness, beloved ones. After birth, when these egos grew to a certain age, the Holy Christ Self had to release a certain amount of their karma, with opportunity for redemption. However, instead of redeeming it, they yielded to its malign influences and began to create secretly, in thought and in feeling, forms of an impure and distorted nature. These began to spread into the atmosphere, just like a smog over a city and were picked up by the sensitive consciousnesses of the race.
"Previously, these were used for drawing only Beauty from the Presence and externalizing Divine Perfection. While the temptation could have been repelled and the mind not allowed to accept or entertain those thought patterns and feelings, some among the race, in secret, opened their consciousness to those thought patterns and played with their feelings, until finally there began to be externalized imperfections of form.
"Curiosity, rebellion against holding true to the Divine Pattern and the use of thought and feeling in creation of imperfection, began the building of what you call the 'soul'. It is a consciousness apart from the full Purity of God. The first thought a man had that was imperfect and impure, energized by a secret feeling, was a cause and that, sent out into the atmosphere, created an effect. Like a boomerang, the effect came back into the consciousness and made a record. That record was the beginning of an impression. Energy sent out in a certain manner returned to affect the lifestream who had sent it forth and there began to be created a shadow between the I AM Presence and the human consciousness. Endeavoring to contact the Presence, the individual would find these 'tramp' thoughts and feelings flowing through that line of contact until more and more imperfect was the conscious use of them. Finally, those centers got completely away from the control of the ego and acted independently. Anything the individual saw, registered on the mind, was energized by feelings, and manifested. Acting independently of the I AM Presence, thought and feeling created most of the conditions in which you are functioning today.
"Through the ages, blessed children, the creation of thought forms and the energizing of those forms by feeling, as well as the action that follows through the flesh, has built an etheric consciousness. The 'soul' is the accumulated consciousness resulting from your experimental use of life, action and reaction. The tendencies, habits and nature of your 'soul' are determined by the ways in which you have used life through the centuries and what life has returned to you, age after age.
"Your 'soul' endures in embodiment and between embodiment. Your 'soul' will continue to live until it is transmuted by the Flame in your heart and there is no longer this shadow self that thinks and feels apart from the Christ. Your 'soul' lives through every personality (embodiment) that you use. Today you have a name, you were born into a family, you live - if fortunate - approximately threescore and ten years and then you 'pass away' as a personality. That personality is no more, but the 'soul' of you, in the etheric garment, influences each personality which you become in each succeeding incarnation. If you were to look at an unbroken stream of one hundred of your Earth lives, you would find that the 'soul' was more or less the same through each personality.
"Now we have to undo the effect of millions and millions of these embodiments, in the matter of a few short years! We are endeavoring to teach you to enter, again, into the Authority of your own I AM Consciousness, drawing Primal Life and getting directions from your Presence. You must learn to silence the cravings of your lower bodies, the etheric rumblings, the human tendencies. Then, in the mastery and control of your own life, you must begin to build anew, as your God Self would have you do, until there are not two - the 'soul' and God - BUT GOD ALONE. Thus, are you reinstated as the I AM Consciousness, Master of thought, feeling and action, absolutely non-recordant to the impressions of the human selves of others, - these vicious conditions of the etheric bodies which manifest as disease of flesh and distress of affairs.
"Beloved ones, contagion caused the fall of this Earth. Contagion of doubts, fears, impurity, lust, depression, is a force which you must diligently prevent, if you intend to be Master by the Power of your Godhead. You are in a constant sea of moving energy, besides your own accumulation of the 'soul'. Every paper you read, every piece of music you hear, every picture you look upon that registers in the mind and which the feeling animates, adds to the accumulation of your limitations, your financial lack, your needs. Do you know that even racial characteristics are just a matter of contagion and acceptance? I have seen lifestreams completely remove all racial imperfections in an unascended body in one embodiment. Can it be done? It has been done! IT MUST BE DONE by those who are the teachers of the race.
"What is the greatest avenue of teaching? EXAMPLE! You are the Guardians who offered to protect those who 'fell from grace'. Not only did they 'fall' - but you have gone after them! Therefore, it is to you we come first with this explanation. It is not enough to enjoy it - Oh, I implore you with all the Love of My Heart to do something about it! The simple sincere call for the purifying of your 'soul' - oh, that does more than you can know. As those mighty Currents of Purifying Energy surge through the etheric body, in answer to your call, I tell you blessed ones, I have watched the benefits to your 'soul'. The 'souls' of men are weighted down with all manner of human distresses.
"Now it is your 'souls' to which I speak! The I AM of you is happy, the I AM of you is God-free, the I AM of you has never known limitations. I AM THE SERVANT OF THE 'SOUL' OF YOU, - that part of you which seeks redemption, that consciousness which is the thinking, feeling self of you and I shall not let you go until that 'soul' is white as snow, - until the hour comes when, in great relief, you can say 'The Father and I are One!' It will come! IT MUST COME, for Love - the greatest Activity in the universe - cannot be denied! I embody Love and I AM One with the Christ of you.
"Speaking now through the 'soul's' self asking for release, asking for authority, asking for Redemption, asking for Freedom, I AM the CHRIST in you come again! 'I AM' THE CHRIST COME AGAIN! ALL THE EARTH HEAR ME TONIGHT! I AM - TONIGHT - THE CHRIST - COME AGAIN!
"The 'Second Coming' is not a mystery. It is the re-instatement of your GODHOOD upon Its Throne of Authority, accepting the reigns of your thought and feeling and again moving as the majestic, embodied God, which you really are - that 'I AM' - and THAT you shall become! Thank you, My children."
through the Messenger, Geraldine Innocente, September 27, 1954, U.S.A. (3)
" . . . All mankind has been taught for centuries to look to something else outside for help, when the Power beating their Hearts is Infinite, All-powerful, and is the Perfection of health; is the Perfection of all achievement, no matter what the requirement. Therefore, live in that Power of your Life. . . ,"
" . . . Feel It deeply! Be It! Be the Glory of God, your Mighty I AM Presence in full Command, full Dominion, full Power and Action. . . . "
