I agree more with Bart and disagree with Dallas and somewhat with Troa,
although I like th way Troa put it. Dallas' answer is too strictly "old
theosophy." Dallas is right in one respect though. He depends on the
accumulated "radiation" of a person who is opening themselves up to the
higher life. Simply by being in our presence, life returns to its correct
path. This idea is found when we think of all we contact being healed, or
when we stream through a crowd, all energy is "treated" by the love of God
or a holy name, such as Elohim.
I think the I AM Temple teaches wonderful ways of calling for the adepts in
situations. The temple decrees instruct us to start in simple ways.
First, why is it that some phrases remind us of something a master would do
and say and some don't? For instance, my best and most frequent response
when asked how a master would act is to think HE WOULD FORGIVE IT. The
masters would forgive wrong actions and by doing so would remove the wrong
Other favorites are: Remove all wrong from the being and world of the
party jumping, the homeless family, or the critical passerby. By removing
the wrong we set the persons free. When they are free, they can take a
second look at their lives and live without what was bothering them and
causing them to do wrong.
I AM uses the violet flame to "consume" the wrong so that it is returned to
the universal and then the exercise we use is one of replacing wrong
activity with LIGHT SUBSTANCE from the Ascended Master Octave. This gives
the injured a new outlook and a new world in which to "struggle." But then
this struggle becomes consumed, too, because we no longer learn to rebel
against conditions, but we learn how to practice the "consuming" of the
condition, setting ourselves and others free, and returning us to love for
God in our lives. Love for God is the right way and it doesn't fail us.
There is so much accumulated distress and discord in some places that the
Violet Flame can be applied continuously until the Victory is achieved.
Especially noteworthy is the call for the beings of the elements and the
powers of nature to be "purified and cleansed" because when they receive
our help, they turn around and thank us for it. The simplest way to
perceive this is by looking at the wealth they provide us with.
Just holding a picture of the Ascended Master Jesus or St. Germain or
whoever your favorite adept is over the discordant condition can work
miracles in returning us to RIGHT ACTION, because remember it is the
Masters themselves who are working to contact man and not just our empty
attempt at being great, so they and their angels are awaiting opportunities
where mankind calls to them. When they act, we know miracles can occur.
I think you, too, must know which are Ascended Master Powers. What, for
instance, rings true and eternal? Who do you hear when the words, "Turn
the other cheeck." are spoken?
