One of the most important initiations that we
face on the path is identifying the insidious operation of fear within our own psychology. This
is a very important initiation, because the question of whether we pass this initiation, or we fail
this initiation, will determine how quickly we can find that perfect love that
will restore perfect balance, perfect purpose, and perfect fulfillment to every dimension of our
lives. That is, after all, what the Path of Initiation is all about.
The world is being presented with a global initiation
in this regard, right now as we speak, in regards to the truly imminent war to remove Saddam
Hussein from power in Iraq. And in this respect, it is essential to understand who are the
people who are passing the initiation, and who are the people who are failing the initiation.
And not just in terms of other people. But most importantly in terms of what direction
we find ourselves leaning. Are we leaning into the camp which represents those who are failing
this initiation? Or are we leaning into the camp of those who are passing this initiation? Let us
come to a clear understanding in this respect, so that we can safeguard our own progress into
that region of perfect love and perfect courage which represents our arrival in the temple of
spiritual victory, and not any mindless slide into the dungeon of spiritual defeat.

The Golden City|
at the Heart of
(Newbury Park, CA - Feb. 20, 2003) After the process of coming to terms with
the UFO people, Extraterrestrials and their clique of worshipers, and ascended master
imposters behind the writings of the "Dove of Oneness" being promulgated in Marcela
Fillol's email newsletter (See Profoundly Serious Poison Alert! Above), which forced
me to take more seriously what the Real Ascended Masters have taught about the subject of
psychic associations and the issue of UFO's and extraterrestrials, I finally decided, after 20
years on the path, to actually make some
specific references to these subjects as part of my regular and daily 20.07 Judgment Call
session. I admit to being sort of recalcitrant in this respect. I would just give the Judgment
Calls, without making any specific calls up front. But, as a result of this experience, I decided
to get specific, and do you know
what happened? It surprised me, as much as it will surprise you.
In the midst of making the specific call for the
judgment of the aforementioned examples of darkness, I was given a panoramic vision. In a
certain respect it was geographic, because I could see the Heart of the Inner Retreat, and I could
see the Golden City in the Heart of the Inner Retreat, and I could see across the land,
and even the earth, and I was given to see how these UFO people,
extraterrestrials, and ascended master imposters are working towards a single goal, and that is
to detour the Children of God away from the Golden City in the Heart of the Inner Retreat.
How about that? Did you know there was a Golden
City in the Heart of the Inner Retreat? I didn't. But I know it now. And the implications of
this are far reaching. So many people are walking around in a daze thinking that the Heart of
the Inner Retreat is irrelevant, especially with all of the downsizing going on at headquarters.
But that is all it is. It is a daze. The reality is, that there is a Golden City in the Heart of the
Inner Retreat, and the false hierarchy is working feverishly to keep the Children of God from
ever arriving there. That means that those of us who have custodianship over that Heart, which
means all the members of this organization, need to get more serious about outpicturing that
Golden City, and bringing it into the physical.
And do you know what else? All of the stuff that the
Temple of the Presence is promulgating concerning the idea that the Summit Lighthouse, and
Church Universal and Triumphant is old news, and outdated, and that the Ascended Masters
are calling their students to rally around the banner of the Shearers, well, it is all a big LIE. I
knew it was a lie before, and I have said as much. (The Temple of the Presence - The Lurking Beast of Darkness Behind the
Pretty Facade). But now, rather than basing my conclusion in this regard on a solid
divine deduction, which has herewith been proven valid, I have seen it with my own eyes. I
have seen the Golden City at the Heart of the Inner Retreat. And the Shearers are part of the
planet wide effort of the false hierarchy to detour the Children of God away from it.

"You have said the war in Iraq will free the people there of a dictator. This may well
be. The only problem is most of them will be free because they are dead.
I would interpret the word "most" to mean somewhere
between 85 to 95 percent of the whole. There are currently 23 million people in Iraq. When the
dust settles, and "most" of them are dead, that would put the number of casualties between 19
million and 21.9 million. I believe this characterization is an extreme exaggeration.
The Children of God need to focus on how much God
their Father loves Liberty, and how much He wants the Iraqi people free. Take out your ruler,
and measure that love. You don't have a ruler that is long enough to measure that love. You
could lay all the yard sticks on earth end to end and you still wouldn't have a measuring stick
long enough to measure the extent of that love. The extent of that love will determine the
extent to which God our Father will send in the Heavenly Host to mitigate the loss of life.
Watch and see.
Marcela Fillol's newsletter, "Spirit and
Love", is a dangerously poisoned water hole. Please heed this warning. In direct rebellion
against El Morya's admonishment, Marcela Fillol maintains deep ties to the psychic realm, and
close associations with UFO and Extraterrestrial worshipers and ascended master imposters.
There is simply no question about the fact, that the integrity of your tie to the Real Ascended
Masters, and to God your Father, is poisoned by taking in the astral pollution that flows out of
her newsletter. If you subscribe to her newsletter, or if you are thinking about subscribing to
it, or if you are simply interested in one of the ways the false hierarchy works to inject astral
poison into the blood stream of Ascended Master students, you need to read this.
Here's something a little bit different from
the Editor's Desk of the Homeward Bound Journal. In this piece, the writer has one foot in the
world of physical fantasy, and the other foot in the world of divine reality. The two mix
together to form a little story. It is my hope that those who have an affection for the lighthouse,
and those who keep the beacon, will find this at least interesting, if not audaciously inspiring.

On the Definition|
(Newbury Park, CA - Feb. 23, 2003) In way
of explaining how this essay came to be placed here, a few words would be in order. This
essay was first published in September of 2002 as part of a larger paper titled, "Whatever
the Subject Let our Words Reflect the Beauty of Yosemite Valley." It was positioned sort
of in the middle of that larger paper. Five months later, in the course of writing the article
introduced above as "The Blinding and Misleading Effects of Fear", I found that at a
certain point, to illustrate an important principle, that I needed to include a large portion of that
original essay regarding the definition of attainment, and I pulled that section out, and pasted it
into the body of the new article, which had the effect of doubling its length. I could live with
that. At that point, this essay existed within the body of two larger articles. But in the short
post below, "Why Do We Honor God our Father and God our Mother?", I found that I
again needed to refer to those principles set forth in that section of the original article, but this
time there is not enough room to paste in the entire section. So, I could either reinvent the
wheel, which I don't want to do, or refer the reader to the mid sections of the larger articles
where the material resides, which would be a very clumsy approach, or I could simply post that
section as a stand alone essay. That's what I have done, and it is available via the link below.
And I would say that this is doubly justified, because that exposition is certainly important
enough on its own to stand by itself.
The reason I say this, is that I run across so many
people who talk about love. And I am sorry to say this, but I get the feeling in most every case
that they don't know what they are talking about. And of course the Ascended Masters talk a
lot about love, and love is a very very important thing no doubt. And Jesus Christ talked about
it too. And because all spiritual authorities tell us that we should have it, well, I think far too
many people simply decide that they have it, and that is the way they fulfill the requirement. In
other words, people have a very clear idea that love is an important thing, and that they should
have a lot of it, so they make believe that they have a lot of it, when in fact, they don't have
very much of it at all. And they go about their lives thinking that if they can convince other
people that they have it, well that is an adequate status quo. But I don't think so.
Marcela Fillol, referred to in the above essay
"Profoundly Serious Poison Alert", illustrates the intensity of the illusion that some
people can build up inside of themselves in this regard. And I think that the self-deception in
this respect is related to the fact that the fallen soul originally fell because it left off of its First
Love. And this means, that to return to its divine estate, the soul must return to its First Love.
But in its current state of rebellion, this is easier said than done. The soul's continuing rebellion
in this regard has everything to do with finding every possible substitute for this First Love,
and calling it love, and hoping and believing it will suffice, but those substitutes will never
As the short story below illustrates, "Why Do We
Honor God our Father and God our Mother?", ever since I
entered the Teachings of the Ascended Masters, I have always been struck by the fact that I did
not know what love was all about. And I couldn't talk myself into believing that I did. My
deficit in this respect was just too obvious. And this was the case for the longest time. And in
my search for it, I have found that real love is built upon a foundation, and if the foundation is
not there, love is not there. It is as simple as that. And that is what this essay is about. It is
about building the foundation for the anchoring of the actual energies of love in the
consciousness of the soul. And its all about helping people to realize that the skyscraper of
love they think they have inside of their heart, well, its not really there, because, there is no
foundation there. If there is no foundation, it is simply impossible for there to be a real
skyscraper there. What is actually there, is a towering illusion of love, and not the real thing.
Only when the foundation is real, will the structure of love that is built upon it be real too.

Why Do We Honor|
God Our Father and
God Our Mother?
(Newbury Park, CA - Feb. 23, 2003) One never knows what treasures of divine
insight and inspiration await the devotee who has his attention fixed upon the Heavenly Host in
prayer and supplication as he hikes along the path on his way to the summit, or in this case, on
his return from the summit.
On this Sunday morning, I had climbed the long
westerly curving grade to the open space trail area, and taken Paradise Trail to the top of
Rainbow Hill, and from there, along the ridge line, up and over some intervening outlooks, and
up to the top of Tank Top Mountain. Along the way I stopped to consider deeply the fragrance
of several of the Southern California trail side plants and flowers. And if there were some way
to share that experience with you I would. But you would have to be there, with your own nose
in appropriate proximity to the bush or flower in question.
Most are familiar with the fragrance of sage brush,
and we have a lot of that along this trail. If you are not already familiar with it, I am again
chagrined that there is not word I could use, or any number of words I could use to transfer that
experience to you. But, I would say nevertheless, that it is amazing to consider, if you could
equate the intensity of fragrance with power, what shear and awesome power is locked in the
foliage of the broad and abundant expanse of lowly sage brush that covers the hillsides to the
north, and to the south of Paradise Trail.
There are an additional two types of plants, very
much unlike the sage brush either in appearance or fragrance, that yet carry a similar latent
power, which is released only when you stop, pick a leaf, and break it open and squish it
between your fingers. But again, these fragrances are simply beyond the power of words to
describe. In other words, there is no word, or group of words, that could possibly evoke the
experience associated with the direct contact with these fragrances. But I can at least assure
you that they occupy there own special niche in God's dictionary of beauty. They are amazing
fragrances to say the least, and it is amazing to consider how the structure of the fragrance
itself is replicated within the fabric of consciousness, i.e. where we actually experience it.
And then there are the bushes of bright yellow daisy
like flowers, whose fragrance smells just like paradise feels. I am quite sure, that the nature
spirits behind this particular flower took the very essence of paradise, and reduced it to a
fragrance, and that fragrance is predominantly what remained inside of my mind as arrived at
the summit of Tank Top Mountain for my community prayer. (If you are interested in how
Tank Top Mountain got its name, see the above article, "The Blinding and Misleading
Effects of Fear.")
When I arrive at the top of Tank Top Mountain, after
I catch my breath, I go into my prayer for the community that is arrayed below some several
hundred feet, and some miles too, in all directions. I called forth the usual galactic contingent
of heavenly beings to descend into this community to rid the people of every type and kind of
burden that I could possibly think of. And to make of this people a shining jewel of collective
recognition of God's greatness, a shining jewel of collective gratitude for God's providence,
with hearts overflowing with the desire to honor God in every thing that they do. Now there is
an interesting idea, I thought to myself. As everyone knows, when one goes about saying a
particular prayer, in a particular place, for a particular group of people, after a while, the prayer
is pretty much the same on every day you give it. But here was something that I had never
included in my prayer before, that the people be set free to honor God their Father in everything
that they do.
Now, when it comes to the issue of honoring God, this
is a quality that I have some familiarity with, at least to the extent that I have laid out in the
above referenced article, "On the Definition of Attainment." (See, here is where I
needed to make reference to the content of that essay, and it is a lot easier to make that
reference if the article is right there, and easily linked to, and the reader does not have to wade
through irrelevant information to get to it, which would have been the case if I had just made
reference to the location of that information in the body of the other two articles in which had
heretofore resided.) The bottom line, and I would encourage the reader to explore the details
in that article, is that I had spent some amount of time trying to train myself to focus the
totality of being on four fundamental truths, that God deserves our utmost respect, esteem,
honor, appreciation, and more recently gratitude, at all times and under all circumstances.
So, the issue of extending to God the honor he
deserves, is something that has some substantial relevance to me. And this familiarity with the
quality helped me to appreciate more deeply this idea, that everyone in this community be set
free to honor God in everything that they do. But I think that the thing that was so compelling
about this idea, was that the concept was actually an extension, or an expansion, that had gone
beyond any thought I had previously entertained concerning the issue of honoring God. As the
reader would be aware from reading the aforementioned essay, the extent of my familiarity
with this quality was the knowledge that God did in fact deserve the highest honor that we
could possibly extend to him. And that is what I focused on (along with the other four qualities
mentioned) during my 15 minute violet flame decrees primarily. So, to have this subject of
honoring God come alive in my mind in a situation where I was not before the altar, and not
doing Violet Flame decrees, was something new, and the way it was framed represented
something new as well.
And so, having finished my community prayers, as I
turned to descend the trail that leads down from the summit of Tank Top Mountain, I had this
new equation in my mind, concerning the people of the community honoring God in everything
that they do, and I continued to think about it as I hiked in an easterly direction along Paradise
Trail in the direction of Rainbow Hill, and home, stopping here and there to further
contemplate the fragrance of the plants along the way. (And again, if you are interested in how
Rainbow Hill and Paradise Trail got their names, please refer to the article above, "The
Blinding and Misleading Effects of Fear.")
And so, as I hiked along Paradise Trail, there was this
point, where this question occurred to me, Why do we honor God our Father and God our
Mother in everything that we do? (Isn't that a good question?) And this answer came to
me, It is because we love them. We truly love them. And this
answer was not simply a pattern of mental energy within my mind. For that moment in time, I
had become the answer. For that moment in time, I was a soul who contemplated God my
Father, and God my Mother, with a genuine love. Yes, I can see it, I honor you Dear Father,
and Dear Mother, because I genuinely love you. Though these words were not spoken. These
words simply describe the general outline of the actual condition of being that I was
experiencing at that moment. And the experience, is just like the experience of the fragrances
that I mentioned above, understanding that words will never convey the experience, but only
the actual experience can convey the experience, but in this case, at least the experience is
within the reach of every reader, no matter where you are in the world as you read this, in as
much as God our Father, and God our Mother, are just as close to you, as they are to me.
I bring this to your attention, primarily as an
illustration, of how a soul, who does not know true love, can come to know true love. As the
soul works to set the foundation of respect, esteem, honor, and appreciation, and gratitude, once
the foundation is set (to the extent that it is solid enough to support the larger structures of
reality that the Masters would place upon it), upon that foundation, the Ascended Masters can
transfer into the soul, that element of the soul's (previously stored) Christ Consciousness that
interlocks with that foundation. This is part of the process that the Masters oversee, whereby
the soul is returned into the very midst of that matrix of reality that the soul has previously
stored in the causal body, one of the most valuable of those realities, would be this actual
divine forcefield wherein the soul is genuinely feeling love for God their Father, and God their
For my part, I am absolutely certain that I have never
felt that love in this life before. Though I must say, that I do remember a certain experience,
and it was way back in 1984 I believe, when I was in the Chapel of the Holy Grail at Camelot,
and the Messenger had just finished speaking, and I remember thinking to myself, "I wish I
loved God as much as she loves God.". Well, after 20 years, my dream is only beginning to
come true in this respect. What that means, is that this is something that the soul is given to
experience, only after it has made the appropriate effort to build the proper foundation, as
described in the above essay, On the Definition of Attainment. In other words, you
don't have love just because you want to have it, or think you have it. You only have it, if you
have built the proper foundation for it.
