Kerry's Self-Inflicted Contradiction
Saturday, October 30, 2004, 2:47 PM PDT||
There is a huge self-inflicted contradiction that looms
above, and within, every assertion that John Kerry makes regarding his fitness to be a good
Command-in-Chief. Because of this self-inflicted contradiction, every time he says that he
could wage a better war on terror than President Bush, the assertion collapses and falls flat,
before our very eyes.
If John Kerry were ever to become
Commander-in-Chief, what would he be in command of? He would be in command of the very
same armed forces that exist today. The very same people. The very same chain of command.
And therefore, his assertion that he could do better, would rest on his ability to inspire these
troops to a higher sense of duty, to a higher sense of sacrifice, to a greater level of
self-givingness, when it comes to laying their lives on the line, and marching the extra mile in
pursuit of America's enemies.
Is that possible? My friends, can pigs fly? Do frogs
sing opera? Do dogs design rocket ships? Do scorpions make good lovers? John Kerry is
trying to impress a falsehood on our minds that represents a pit of illusion the depths of which
rival the very height of Mt. Everest.
First of all, American soldiers are not blind. They
know John Kerry betrayed his fellow soldiers in Vietnam. If any single group listened
attentively to the Swift Boat ads, it was the people in the armed forces. They see a person in
John Kerry who took a quick out from a fighting war after only four months on the front lines,
using three self-inflicted scratches to garner himself three purple hearts, which was his passport
home, leaving his "band of brothers" to carry the load of the battle without him. To a warrior,
that behavior is simply dishonorable. Those who carry the brunt of the battle on the front
lines, have no respect at all for John Kerry. And their judgment in this regard is fully validated
by Kerry's most recent arguments. As if George W. Bush is the one going from cave to cave,
ridge to ridge, and valley to valley looking for Bin Laden. The people who are on the ground
are the one's looking for Bin Laden, and when John Kerry criticizes Bush for not finding Bin
Laden, every solider knows that he is criticizing them. As if George W. Bush is the one going
from bunker to bunker looking for explosives. The people on the ground are the ones going
from bunker to bunker. They are the ones doing the searching, and the finding. To criticize
Bush for not finding and securing 1/1000 of the weapons and explosives that existed in various
places throughout Iraq in April of 2003, they know that Kerry is criticizing them, and doing so
without knowing what he's talking about. To climb the mountain of power, John Kerry is using
them, again, as a stepping stone, alleging their incompetence, in order to attract votes to
You can be sure of this. A great groan of betrayal will
sweep through the ranks of our military the very instant they learn that John Kerry has been
voted in as their Commander-in-Chief. This would be the single greatest blow to the moral of
American Armed Forces ever experienced, apart from the ignominious withdrawal from
Vietnam, which Kerry also helped to engineer. Morale would drop into the basement, and it
would not emerge therefrom, until Kerry was gone. To vote John Kerry into office, would be
about the most stupid thing the American people could do, when it comes to their own security.
Here, let's line up all the people we totally rely on for our security, and let's deliver them one
big punch in the stomach, and knock the wind of their morale totally out of them. And then,
let's expect them to march into battle highly inspired to protect America. What utter
Let the word go out. Let the people beware. There is
only one possible vote that could enhance America's security, and that is a vote that would
retain President George W. Bush as our Command-in-Chief.

John Kerry's Weakness
Saturday, October 30, 2004, 2:35 PM PDT||
There is an important lesson to be learned from the
way in which John Kerry dealt with the ads placed by the Swift Boat Vets for Truth. Here, I
believe we can see illustrated therein, the weakness of John Kerry, his inability to stand on his
own two feet. He did not stand and fight in Vietnam, and he is showing the same weakness
here. How so?
At the height of this controversy, what was the
strategy of the Kerry campaign to defend against the Swiftboat ads? They were leaning on
Republican Senator John McCain, for one thing. Every time a Kerry defender opened
their mouth on this issue, they said that Republican Senator John McCain thinks that Kerry is
being treated unfairly. They should've handed out a box of Kleenex everytime they said that, so
we can all dab the tears from our eyes. The next thing they did, was to get on their knees and
beg no less than President George W. Bush to pull Kerry's fat out of the fire. "O please George,
tell them to stop, tell them to stop!" Is that not a strange thing to do, to have to appeal to your
opponent for your own political survival? Why can't this person quit whining, and simply stand
up and speak to the issues?
I believe that it was the third Swiftboat ad, that was
the most powerful. It raised the issue of Kerry's betrayal of his fellow vets when he testified
before Congress in 1971. It points in exactly the right direction, though they did not get to the
center of the target, and perhaps they never will, unfortunately. John Kerry betrayed the
freedom of the South Vietnamese people. And by doing so, robbed the American soldier of his
honor and self-respect. Again, John Kerry robbed the American soldier of his honor and
self-respect. When American's gave their lives in Vietnam, it was for the freedom of the South
Vietnamese people. There is no higher and nobler calling than this. And freedom was what
American's continued to fight for in the jungles of South Vietnam. And when John Kerry made
his quick and cowardly exit from Vietnam, he returned to America for one purpose, and that
was to make freedom a dirty word, to help a whole generation of Americans to feel ashamed for
sacrificing their lives for the freedom of another nation. And today, he is working in exactly the
same direction in relationship to the people of Iraq, setting the stage for yet another betrayal,
and for yet another great robbery, stealing out of the very hands of those who now fight for
freedom in Iraq, any sense of honor in so doing.
We can see it. We can stop it.

Let the Eye of Appreciation Expose the Truth
Friday, October 29, 2004, 9:36 PM PDT||
Let's make an effort to break out of this "take it for
granted" shell of insensitivity, and allow our hearts, minds, and souls to expand fully into the
ever flowing and upward rising flame of appreciation and gratitude for what we have here in
America, especially in regards to our electoral process. Let the flame of gratitude carry us way
up high, so that landscape below, the whole of it, can be seen with one eye. There, spread out
before us, from horizon to horizon, and even from sea to shining sea, are things very important
to recognize and ponder in terms of the flame of liberty, and in terms of important lessons to be
learned regarding both presidential candidates in this election.
Let us thank God for the fact that we choose our
leaders in a peaceful manner. In the stinging rhetoric that is flowing back and forth, from one
side to the other, let us be grateful that these are only words, that they are not bullets. Let us be
grateful that everyone can speak the truth as they see it, without any threat whatsoever of being
carted off and put away in a prison, perhaps to be tortured there for the offending beliefs, and
perhaps never to be seen again. Let us be grateful that there are not families in America
weeping for their fathers, brothers, sons, daughters, who went missing, only because they spoke
up to challenge those in power.
Some may shake their head in derision concerning the
polarization of the American body politic. But don't follow their lead. Be grateful that
differing opinions can coexist within the citizenry, and that people can speak their minds, and
not fear for their lives. Let us be grateful that we choose our leaders through elections, and not
by the strong armed intimidation of those who have grabbed all the guns.
The people of Iraq know about that. And Afghanistan
too. For the last 30 years, their leadership was imposed by the strong armed intimidation of
those who had grabbed all the guns. There are mass graves in the countryside to mark the final
disposition, the final resting place, of those who exercised their God-Given right of free speech,
and paid for it with their lives. Hundreds of thousands are piled in layers below the sands of
the hot Iraqi desert. These societies, wracked with fear, terror, and above all, pain and sorrow
over the loss of the best of the citizenry to the knives, clubs, and bullets of the dictators, they
thirst for freedom, they thirst for the rebirth of justice, and the establishment of the very same
orderly democratic processes that we know here in America.
And so, President George W. Bush heard the cries of
their hearts, he felt their pain, and led America on the most noble mission imaginable, to set
whole nations free. What a beautiful and honorable beginning for the 21st Century, the
beginning of the Aquarian Age. Truly, a Golden Age of Liberty lies within our grasp.
Now, as we ponder our own electoral choices in the
few days ahead in the run-up to our own elections, as we bask in the many benefits of our own
democratic processes, especially our freedom from pain and sorrow, from bullets and clubs,
and prison cells, and even mass graves, as we go about the business of choosing our leaders,
knowing for certain that we will wake up safe in our own beds in the morning, know that this
President did the right thing to see to it that the people of Afghanistan and Iraq would have the
same treasure of peaceful self-determination.
And let us not miss the all-important counter-point in
all of this. Listen to the words of Senator John Kerry. The Iraq war, according to him, was the
wrong war, at the wrong place, at the wrong time. This is what he said. And therefore, you
can know this for sure. If we had a President Kerry in power after 9/11, the people of Iraq
would be under the boot of Saddam Hussein's terror today. Under a President Kerry, they
would have been denied ever vestige of democratic aspiration. Yes one person can make a
difference. The fruit of one man's vision produces the fruit of freedom for tens of millions.
The fruit of another man's vision produces continued slavery for the same millions. This is the
difference that John Kerry would have made. That status quo of slavery he would have
maintained. What a sick caricature of an American, if you ask me.
And so, as we participate in our own peaceful electoral
processes, as we hear Senator John Kerry plead with us, and beg us for our vote, and as we
wonder what kind of fruit a Kerry administration would bring forth, let us wonder no longer.
Let us look at the Iraqi people, who would certainly be in chains today, if he had his way.
There, my friends, is the platter of fruit his administration would serve up, piled high with the
husks of shame, dishonor, and the very betrayal of liberty.
Senator John Kerry is no friend of freedom.

John Kerry Reporting for Duty?
Thursday, October 28, 2004, 11:54 PM PDT||
Remember Senator John Kerry introducing himself to
the American people in his keynote speech at the Democrat Convention in Boston, by standing
before the gathered throngs, giving a hand salute, and proclaiming, "John Kerry, Reporting for
Well, what happened the last time he "reported for
He reported for a 12 month tour of duty on a swift boat
in the rivers of Vietnam. Over the next few months, he received three scratches, all superficial,
all self-inflicted, lost interest in the battle, and in perfect health, retreated back home to
America after only 4 months of service, leaving his "band of brothers" to face the enemy
without him. All of them fulfilled their 12 month tours by the way. And what is more, when he
got back to America, he branded all of his "brothers" war criminals even as they were nobly and
honorably risking their lives manning the ramparts against the further advance of communist
forces in the jungles and waterways of Vietnam. And what is more, by helping the American
people to feel stupid and ashamed of their efforts to fight for freedom, helping them to
"realize" that running away was the better part of valor, Kerry played a pivotal role in
delivering the whole nation of South Vietnam into the hands of the Communists.
John Kerry reporting for duty? The last time he
reported for duty, he not only left the battlefield early, but he helped the enemy to overrun it.
John Kerry reporting for duty once, was enough. Just ask the people of South Vietnam, as they
tremble in fear, day by day, before their Communist taskmasters. When America stood by
them, they had hope. Thanks to John Kerry they have no hope today.
Let the truth be told.

It is no coincidence that all three "wounds" that Kerry
received in Vietnam, for which he sought purple heart awards, are self-inflicted. This is a
character trait writ large in the current controversy. This whole controversy is self-inflicted.
Kerry inflicted this controversy upon himself when he made his Vietnam "service" a
centerpiece of his campaign. "John Kerry Reporting for Duty". That will go down in history as
the most foolish statement ever made by any presidential candidate.

Vietnam and the Roots of 9/11 - Addendum
Thursday, October 28, 2004, 11:05 PM PDT||
When considering the relationship of America's retreat
from Vietnam to the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, which in turn, led ultimately to the rule of
the Taliban which gave Bin Laden sanctuary in the 1990's, it is true that the most immediate
event in that time frame, right in that part of the world, was the abandonment of our ally, the
Shah of Iran in early 1979.
In this regard, the Soviets stood by and watched
America allow one of its most important allies in that region go down paving the way for the
Islamic revolution that followed. Under President Jimmy Carter, America did not lift a finger
to protect its interests in the region, and this was, to the Soviets, just an extension and
reaffirmation of the lack of will and resolve first evidenced by America in Vietnam. Clearly, if
America was to intercede in any meaningful way to stop a Soviet invasion of Afghanistan, it
would need basing facilities in the region, and the only place that was possible at the time, was
in Iran, a nation that had been our ally, under the rule of the Shah since 1953. By allowing Iran
to fall into the hands of the Ayatollah Khomeini, one of the single greatest focal points of
darkness this world has ever known, this was the clearest signal that America had no intention
of lifting a finger to stop Soviet designs for its expanding influence in the region.
Yes I voted for Carter in 1980. In this regard, I was
simply blind. At that time, my world, my vision, did not extend beyond my own personal and
Remember that the Shah was in a position to see what
America had done to its ally in South Vietnam. That's right, the word betray comes to mind.
Signing a Peace Treaty with the Communists that allowed their armed forces to remain in place
INSIDE OF SOUTH VIETNAM. And then to have the gall to claim that this was peace with
honor. No, this does not inspire confidence in those who depend on America for their survival.
I believe that because of this, the Shah came to
mistrust the United States considerably, and this was made the more acute, as President Jimmy
Carter kept sending signals that the Shah was like a piece of totalitarian dirt to him. In other
words, the official position of the United States under President Jimmy Carter, gave the world
the impression that the Shah was the bad guy, and that the Ayatollah Khomeini was the good
guy, and this contributed greatly to the massive demonstrations against the Shah in 1978.
If America had had its head screwed on straight at that
time, understanding what our responsibilities were in the world, to stand for freedom, because
we had stood for freedom in Vietnam, unto a final victory there, this would have changed the
entire equation in terms of our relationship with the Shah of Iran. He would have had no doubts
about our resolve to support him, and at the same time, have no doubts about our commitment
to democracy. And U.S. influence could have been used to bring the Shah much more swiftly
to appropriate democratic reforms, and this, coupled with the fact that we would have totally
dismissed the Ayatollah Khomeini as a force for good in the world, no major opposition would
have ever taken hold against the Shah.
Our standing for freedom in Vietnam, and our acute
interest in our ally in Iran, standing by him, would have changed the equation in terms of
Afghanistan. And part of that equation would have been that the U.S., having put so much
effort into the survival of Iran as a potential bastion of freedom, this would have said to the
Soviets, in regards to neighboring Afghanistan, "hands off." And because of America's stature
as a brave champion of freedom, the Soviets would have heeded the warning, and backed off,
and five million Afghans, whom the Soviets slaughtered over the course of their ten-year war,
would be alive today. The whole world would be a different place today.
Look at the blood that Jimmy Carter has on his hands.
Another thing that caused the relationship between the
Shah of Iran, and President Jimmy Carter to deteriorate, is that fact that Carter did the same
thing to Nicaragua as the U.S. did in Vietnam. Here again, the Shah saw the U.S. betray an ally
into the hands of the Communists. The forces fighting Nicaragua's Somoza were largely Soviet
supportered leftists, and if their "revolution" succeeded, it was clear you would have another
Cuba, but this time on Central American mainland. In other words, another Soviet client state.
Jimmy Carter said, we don't care. And the Shah, saw in Jimmy Carter a betrayer, and probably
distrusted him so much, that his friendship with America became next to useless. And what did
the Soviets see in Carter? Perhaps they did not see a "friend" per se, but they did see in Carter
someone who embodied America's legacy of weakness. They had nothing to fear from Jimmy
Carter's America, and they sent their troops marching into Afghanistan to claim another nation
for the glory of their Communist revolution.
The whole world changed, not for the better, but for
the worse, because America did not stand for freedom in Vietnam. That is the lesson of
We need to put ourselves in the shoes of the Shah of
Iran, and all the members of his government, and all of their supporters throughout the
population, as the forces of darkness are mounting a tremendous effort to bring it down,
1976-1979, to pave the way for the establishment of one of the most dark and sinister regimes,
yet known on the planet.
In this world, as you can see, those nations who stand
for freedom, stand only when America stands with them. This of course is the lesson of World
War II. This is the lesson of the war that was never fought in defense of the people of China
and Tibet. This is the lesson of the Korean war, without a doubt. The forces of darkness have
plans to gobble up every nation on this planet, one by one. And the only thing that stands in
their way, is America.
Why this is so, has to do with the karma of the people.
And it has to do with the grinding down of the pride, that will pave the way for the soul's
personal acceptance of the mediator, the Christ. For them, America is the Christ, and this
Christ, standing strong, is essential to give substance and structure to their determination to
stand against the forces of darkness.
And so, you can be sure, as the Shah tries to hold the
line in his nation, against the greater forces of darkness that are intent on gobbling it up, he
knows, his supporters know, and all who support the government know, that they cannot stand
without America's support. And as America gives signals that she will not support them, as
Jimmy Carter makes it clear that America will stand by and allow the forces of darkness to
gobble up that nation, the morale of the government begins to crumble, the morale of the
people begins to crumble, and support for the government begins to crumble, and people begin
to see the handwriting on the wall, and many will switch sides, or flee. All barriers to the
onward march of darkness collapse. And the cause is lost.
President Jimmy Carter was the embodiment of the
weakness that came upon America at the end of the Vietnam conflict. As he wielded that
weakness in the years 1976 to 1980, as if it were a sword of virtue, the cause of freedom was
lost in nation after nation.
We have certainly come full circle today, as we come
face to face with the conseqneces of Jimmy Carter's weakness right now in the prospect of
Iran's Islamic Revolution moving towards the development of nuclear weapons, and at the very
same time, we have the clone of Jimmy Carter knocking on the door of the Presidency in the
person of Senator John Kerry who, if elected, would bring the very same modalities of
weakness and blindness to the Presidency.
As I have explained below, if the American people would be so foolish as to elect
Senator John Kerry to the Presidency today, this would send a signal of weakness to the
Chinese Communists (who remember his friendship to the cause of Communism during his
Vietnam years). Given the near certainty that Kerry would not raise a finger to stop them, the
Chinese would be sorely tempted to rush through the door of opportunity presented by a Kerry
Adminstration to seize Taiwan once and for all, and thereby shut down all hopes for freedom
ever taking root on the mainland for many many centuries.

I have a
confession to make
Wednesday, October 27, 2004, 10:55 PM PDT||
The first presidential election that I voted in was in
1980. I was still living in Colorado at that time, and I remember a conversation that I had with
my friend Richard, who was the owner of the computer store which I had worked hard to help
him set up in the little mountain town of Evergreen.
Before I make my confession, I just wanted to mention
the fact that I had a very enjoyable paradise-like time helping Richard set up that computer
store. I had the opportunity to freely use my furniture building and general carpentry skills in a
very artistic way. Yes, these are fond memories. But one of the things that I will always
remember, is my effort to find a local artist to render the Apple Computer logo in stained glass.
Apple Computer led the personal computer revolution in the late 1970's and they had a logo in
the shape of an apple, and the apple was divided into several rainbow color bands. This was all
the more interesting to us, because we were all generally embedded in the rainbow populated
new age culture of that mountain town. Of course, we had these wild ideas that we would have
a product there that might sell nationally, in that stained glass window, at least to computer
stores, but the most that ever came of it, was that it was given a very prominent place at the
center of our store, and it would catch the low afternoon sun in a very beautiful way lighting the
store up with many rainbow hues. I made a nice oak frame for it that allowed it to blend into all
of the other prominent woodwork in the store sales area.
And I only bring this particular point up, because I was
reading a pearl, perhaps it was one embedded in a Keepers of the Flame Lesson, where a
particular Master called for the implementation of the Chart of the Presence in stained glass,
and I wonder why this has yet to be done. Perhaps they are waiting for someone to decide to get
rid of that ape face in the current chart before they actually pass that torch to someone. You
know, the Chart of the Presence did not always have an ape face. Look at the original chart.
That mountain is a very finely pointed peak, very similar to the mountain peak on the front
cover of "The Chela and the Path". I am looking at the Chart of the Presence in Climb the
Highest Mountain, Second Printing, 1973.
Ok, getting on with my confession, I am remembering
one conversation in particular, and this must have been the early fall of 1980, where Richard
and I were standing outside the store, next to the gurgling Bear Creek, in the late afternoon,
watching the sun set behind the big dam there that holds Evergreen Lake from washing away
the town, the work day was over I believe, and we were talking about the upcoming election.
And what I remember of the conversation, beyond what we were smoking at the time, was that I
was convinced that Ronald Reagan was a war monger, and that Jimmy Carter was a peace
maker, and that was all there was to that. And I voted for Jimmy Carter in that election. It is
not that I'm ashamed to say it. I am more dumbfounded than anything else.
Thank God there are paths that can lead us from
blindness to true seeing in so many areas. Not all at once in regards to every truth. But point
by point over time.
Memories like this are a good source of humility, at
least for me. In those days, I am not really sure where in the world I got those opinions from, in
as much as watching television was not something that was done much among the friends I had
at the time, and I had no interest in politics per se, and this was never a topic of discussion, up
until that fall. In other words, my level of political knowledge, my sense of what was actually
going on in the world, was next to zero. The Soviets invaded Afghanistan in 1979, but on that
day in 1980, if you would have asked me about that, it would have been news to me. It
should've registered on my awareness at the time, that my friend Richard was a professor at a
college in Denver, and that he might know something that I didn't. But that didn't even enter
into my mind.
And this memory is surfacing at this time, in this
presidential election period, where I look at the opinions held by John Kerry supporters, and I
shake my head, and I can't fathom how they can think the things they are thinking. And so, I get
to look back at myself, on that late afternoon in 1980, and I can shake my head at that person,
which was me, and in regards to him, I can say truthfully, that I can't fathom how he could be
thinking the things that he was thinking then.
Of course, everything changed for me when I entered
more fully into the Teachings, attending my first conference at Camelot in 1981, and I could
hear what was important to the Masters. Ok, now I am starting to get it. Looking at the world
from their perspective, I finally had a foundation of knowledge, a foundation of priorities,
based on truth and reality, from which I can then draw more realistic conclusions about the
world, and about politics.
This particular before and after contrast for me, has
particular relevance, when I hear people say, in the current debate, that the war in Vietnam was
a mistake. This subject does come up more and more frequently since Kerry made his Vietnam
service a central issue of the campaign, and he, and his supporters are forced to justify his
anti-war activities. When they repeat Kerry's thesis, that our involvement in Vietnam was
mistake, there is something in me that sort of freaks out, because I see the truth so clearly, and
I say, inside of myself, what can possibly be going on inside of the head of that person, this is
just grotesque, repugnant, etc. etc. etc. And I find myself in this mode of mind wherein I am
fixated on this sensation of how grotesque, and repugnant their state of mind is, and this
fixation serves as a barrier to even making an effort to lay out the facts that would help them to
see their error. I suppose my mind is framed by a conclusion, that has them so upside down in
their thinking, that there is not any reason at all to even try to set them straight. And I am
thinking, is this a useful reaction? And I must conclude that it isn't.
Wouldn't it be more useful to remember where I was
in the fall of 1980, and when confronting similar empty headed individuals in the present
moment, make an effort to imagine that I am really speaking to that empty headed individual
I think so.
I believe that this emotional reaction to empty headed
individuals, is really an aspect of the dweller that needs to be slain. It gets in the way of calmly
and respectfully presenting information that will help people to make the right decisions. Of
course it is important to quietly make the call for Archangel Uriel to bind the demons that
might be whispering into their ears.
In regards to the Vietnam issue, and the complete lie
that says that Vietnam was a mistake, we must, I must stop freaking out over the fact that this
lie occupies so many minds. Instead, we must, I must, focus on the truth, and set that truth
before the person, building block by building block, until the whole structure of truth is built
right there, in front of their eyes.
Sure, some people might just sweep this little
monument to reality off the table. Children do that to valuable things all the time. Like glasses
of milk for example. But you will never know what their reaction will be if you do not first
given them an opportunity to admire it. They cannot admire that monument to the truth, if you
do not first build it.
And so, this is the truth. America was inexorably
drawn into an historical stream of events that gave us no choice at all when it came to being
involved in Vietnam. No choice. Because of the fact that we had no choice, there is only one
conclusion to draw. It was our divine destiny to be involved, and to stand for freedom there.
Our Divine Destiny. Given the fact that there was no exit, nor off-ramp, from that historical
stream, it appears that our nation had a karmic debt to pay. Yes, a karmic debt. Given the fact
that this was our divine destiny, and given the relationship of historical inevitability to the
requirements of our national karma, you can be absolutely sure that God our Father, had at the
ready, the resources necessary for us to come out of that great challenge totally victorious.
When tests are presented, we are expected to pass those tests, and to draw from God the
necessary resources. God our Father has only one thing in mind, and that is total victory.
Is anyone here aware of that historical stream of
events that drew us inexorably into the conflict in Vietnam? Here is a hint. It began at the end
of World War II, wherein part of our postwar treaty obligations required us to help France
reclaim, from the Japanese, its colonial possessions in Indochina.

Vietnam and the Roots of
Wednesday, October 27, 2004, 10:51 PM PDT||
When it comes to the consequences associated with
America's abandonment of her divine destiny in Vietnam, let us be clear.
When America abandoned South Vietnam to the
Communists, every true friend of freedom that was left in South Vietnam was either put to
death, or put in a "reeducation" camp, where not just their bodies, but their minds and souls
were tortured and killed. Tens of thousands were put to death, hundreds of thousands were
imprisoned. The killing and the imprisonment goes on today.
When America abandoned South Vietnam, there was
no longer a brake upon the Communists in neighboring Cambodia. Three million people were
slaughtered by the Communists in Cambodia because America was not there.
On the world stage, because America had clearly lost
her will to fight, America appeared weak, and of no consequence as a world power, and this was
what led to the Soviet invasion of Afghanistan in 1979. If America had stood her ground in
Vietnam, the Soviet Communists would have decided that an invasion of Afghanistan would be
too much of a risk, that an invasion would most likely draw a direct American response. But
instead of being intimidated by a strong America, the Soviets were emboldened by a weak
America. The devastation that was wrought on Afghanistan by the Soviets, beyond the death of
millions of the best friends of freedom Afghanistan had, resulted in such a condition of chaos,
that when the Soviets finally withdrew in 1989, they left behind a situation which allowed for
the ascent of the Taliban in the 1990's, providing a base for Bin Laden's terrorist organization,
and the rest is history.
The situation we face today, 911 itself, has its roots in
America's abandonment of South Vietnam.

that is a part of me, is also a part of you.
Follow the threads in the woven fabric, and see if this

The greatest freedom there is and through the
heart, mind, and soul of the Master, we are given the opportunity to experience this
allows you to perceive every soul as that precious child whom God our Father and Mother love
so much, and whom they so much desire to heal and bring home. This applies to every one,
with no exceptions (generally speaking).
Of course, what we are talking about here is not an
abstraction, but the most fundamental truth that undergirds the entire physical creation. This is
really the most profound thing you will ever experience. When this truth is perceived, your
own soul is set completely free from all lower interaction patterns, from all the various patterns
of human blindness, from one end of the human spectrum, to the other. And when I say from
one end of the human spectrum to the other, from human badness, to the epitome of human
goodness, what I am saying is this. From bad to good, if it is human, it is blind. Any attempt
by a human being to be "loving" is just another form of blindness. Only God knows how to
love, that's how the Ascended Masters know how to love, and if we are to know how to love, we
must put on their heart, their mind, their soul, and then we will know. Yes, when we see
through their eyes, we will know. And in this, what I am describing is the way that students
are trained, over time, to come into alignment with the truth.
Now, to perceive this truth, in regards to the Greatest
Freedom, all seven chakras must be equally illuminated and balanced. And this points to the
ultimate reason why the dweller must be cast out. The dweller on the threshold locks the
consciousness of the soul into a compartment of blindness, maintaining a matrix of darkness
within the domain of each chakra. This great truth cannot be anchored in your own chakras if
you indulge any aspect of the dweller. To indulge an aspect of the dweller, is to allow
it to live within the domain of your conscious awareness. To allow it to live within the domain
of your conscious awareness, is to allow your soul to be trapped within the matrix of blindness
that it represents.
And of course, in line with what I just said, this
applies to both the dweller of hatred, as well as the dweller of self-righteous pride, who sees
itself as loving, even infinitely loving. Perhaps this is the greatest delusion a soul can fall prey
to. But guess what, it is the same dweller. Whether it wears its hatred on its sleeve, or hides it
under a thin layer of self-righteousness, both conditions of consciousness refuse to surrender to
the requirements of the path that would make the soul eligible to receive the experience I just
described, wherein the soul is given the opportunity to see through the heart and the mind and
the soul of the Master. Now, we are talking about great treasures here.
To see through the heart, and the mind, and the soul of
the Master, is to see through the heart, the mind, and the soul of God himself. Only the obedient
ones can enter there. There we experience the truth, that indeed, God our Father, and Mother,
extend a level of forgiveness to every soul of such magnitude that it is completely off the
scales, in terms of our capacity to grasp.
I believe I have said this before. But I will say it
again. This forgiveness is absolutely infinite and unquenchable. And if the soul could take
advantage of the full measure of forgiveness available, I imagine it could go on sinning, and
being forgiven for all time, for all of eternity. But what finally cuts the soul off from this great
treasure of forgiveness, is that at one point, its very life will end. As it has been written, to sin
is to die. God our Father has, in effect, put life into slow motion within the physical realm,
limiting our capacity to sin. This prolongs our opportunity. But not infinitely. At one point,
the last vestige of divine soul fabric will be consumed by the forces of darkness, and this by
freewill. Then, the soul cannot be retrieved, and cannot access the treasure of forgiveness any
longer. It has used its freewill to die, and that freewill will be respected.
This is the inevitable fate of all who sustain the
consciousness of rebellion, and that is why those who have really come nigh the reality of
God's Love, will not stand by and allow a soul to sin its way into the final death. We are
constantly on alert to help every soul find the brake pedal.
Now, here is a very interesting fact. The soul cannot
know this truth by its own attainment. This is what the Guru/Chela relationship is all about. The
Master can place his or her chakras over the (obedient) soul, and allow the soul to see through
his or her eyes. Of course, the soul has no sense of the presence of the Master per se in this
respect. The Master remains transparent. The soul only sees what the Master sees, and I
suppose one could make the mistake of thinking that one is looking through one's own eyes.
But, by the time the soul reaches this point, where the Master can do this, the soul is not under
any delusions in this regard, knowing that the only way up the mountain, the only way to scale
the shear granite cliffs, is if the soul will take the hand of the Master, and allow the strength
that is in the Master's arm alone, to lift the soul up.
It is important to understand that the Master, be he El
Morya, or St. Germain, or Mother Mary, or Beloved Nada, or even Archangel Michael, to name
only a few, stand by us, keeping the vigil with us, with this great desire within them, a great
conflagration of holy passion in fact, to give to us these blessed opportunities to see through
their eyes. For this is the modality established by God, through which the patterns of the divine
identity are impressed upon the soul. This is the modality, established by God, through which
the divine identity is incrementally resurrected.
In as much as all initiations are to this end, unto the
resurrection of the divine identity, this points to how initiations in general are given to the soul,
chakra to chakra by the sponsoring Master, and this again points to the importance of casting
the dweller out.
Of course, we can all receive this initiation long before
we have cleared our own electronic belts of the substance of the dweller. But, this much is
required of us. When it comes to the domain of our conscious minds, we must prove some level
of mastery when it comes to identifying the dweller, and casting it out. This is so important, the
proving of our mastery in this regard.
If the soul cannot make this identification, if the soul
cannot keep the domain of the conscious awareness clear of the dweller on the threshold, then
this condition of dweller clutter that remains at the surface, speaks to a situation that is dire,
wherein the consciousness of the soul has been fused anew to that dweller substance. In other
words, the soul has been fooled again to believe that the dweller is part of its real self. And so,
the soul has become chained anew as it were to a matrix of false identity that is constantly
decelerating in vibration, that is, in state of constant vibrational decay, that will eventually
deliver the soul into the hands of the very demons of the pit. And when this happens, the
above described initiation cannot be given, because this initiation is a transfer of power, and
this power would feed the dweller. The Master is forbidden by law to feed the dweller. The
dweller is the slave master of the soul. It cannot be fed by the Master.
As it stands, the soul has its various justifications for
indulging the dweller. If the dweller is made more powerful by an injection of Light, the Light
will be turned into darkness. And how does that increased darkness manifest? The various
justifications for indulging the dweller that were there before, become more distinct, more real,
more tangible. And beyond that, additional justifications will be born. These are the chains that
bind the soul. The chains that currently exist that bind the soul, the Master will not make them
stronger. And the Master will not be a party to adding even more chains. And so, here is the
exact and precise domain of activity wherein the soul must begin the development of self-
mastery. The soul must learn to identify the chains, and then to cast them off, using the tools
the Masters have given us. Then the soul is ready to be given real wings. The Light the Master
gives to the soul, makes the wings stronger, not the chains.
It is important for us to try to anchor this awareness,
of how the Masters stand by us, with the great desire to transfer to us the fires of freedom,
giving us these ultimate insights that allow us to be of greater and greater usefulness to God our
Father, and our Mother, when it comes to fulfilling their hopes and dreams for the healing and
homecoming of all souls. And how they must hold back these treasures of awareness, because
the soul will not cooperate with the program, by challenging the dweller and casting it out.
You can see that it is not really a matter of worthiness.
If the soul was not worthy, God our Father and Mother, would have no desire to heal that soul,
and bring that soul home. But that desire exists within the heart of our Divine Parents,
magnanimously, and this is where we derive our worthiness, yes within the very love that God
our Father and Mother pour out to us, coalescing as one platform of opportunity after another,
even in this fallen state. And so, the Masters stand by us, cognizant primarily of these
overriding hopes and dreams, which they serve to fulfill. They reflect the purity of that great
love to us, and the forgiveness that flows before it. And they are ready, at a moments notice, to
present us with those healing initiations, at the very moment they see that we have prepared
ourselves to receive them.
So, have mercy on our Beloved El Morya, and our
Blessed Mother Mary, et al. Become, this very moment, very serious about this great work of
identifying and casting out the dweller on the threshold. Become very serious concerning this
matter, so that you can make that progress that will allow these blessed Masters to extend to
you the treasures they are already authorized to extend.
You are destined to be victorious in this life. God our
Father, and Mother have decreed it. If you desire to win all the way home, be certain they have
already designed every uplifting wind that will flow under your wings. That means the Masters
have a huge storehouse of initiations, each one in a little box, described, identified, and
serialized, with your name on it, ready to give to you. Thousands of them. Thousands of them.
They are only waiting for the appearance of that clear space, the space wherein no sympathy for
the dweller exists, a space framed by obedience to the Teaching, a space framed by a
determination to divide the real from the unreal. The moment that space appears, and the
moment they are sure that you are serious about keeping that space clear, they will place a
treasure in that space. You can count on it. And then, you can start counting the treasures. At
one point you will lose count, your treasure chest will become so full, as to overflow. And so,
have mercy on them. Do what you need to do, so they can fulfill their reason for being. Allow
them to experience the great joy of helping you to find your way home.
Become the master of dweller identification. Become
the master of dividing the real from the unreal. Become the master of precision and even
minutia in this domain. Become the master of priority itself in this regard. And then become
the master kicker, who can kick that dweller down field and through the goal posts every time.

Interesting Perspective on the "Insurgency" in Iraq
Tuesday, October 26, 2004, 8:15 PM PDT||
This report was in a recent Missile Defense Briefing:
MISSILE DEFENSE BRIEFING REPORT NO. 154
American Foreign Policy Council, Washington, DC
September 14, 2004
MISSILE DEFENSE MOVES EAST
The Bush administration's missile defense plans could take on a dramatic new dimension in
the near future as part of the global War on Terror. Agence France Presse (September 5) reports
that the Pentagon is beginning to explore new basing options for boost-phase defense, a
development that experts say could lead to the creation of permanent basing sites in places like
Afghanistan, Iraq or the Caspian Sea. Current boost phase research and development, according
to Pentagon officials, is intended to create forward-deployed "mobile, surface-based, multi-use
interceptor" that would enable the United States to shoot down ballistic missiles early in flight,
while they are still over enemy territory.
The new attention being given to boost-phase basing appears to have everything to do with
Iran. Policymakers in Washington have expressed growing concern over the Islamic Republic's
nuclear and ballistic missile advances in recent months, and now seem to have begun actively
planning strategic responses. In a recent report, the Congressional Budget Office, the U.S.
government's fiscal watchdog, outlined that "[t]wo to four BPI sites would be necessary to fully
defend against liquid-fuel ICBMs launched from possible Iranian locations." Such a capability
would require bases in Central Asia and the Persian Gulf, as well as possible floating launch
platforms in the Caspian.
Given the determination of the Iranian mullahs to
aquire nuclear weapons as the only certain check against American power in the region, you see
in this report, another factor that inspires the Iranian mullahs to send their agents and money
into Iraq to destablize the situation there, hoping to establish, amdist the rubble and the chaos, a
fundamentalist Islamic state that would not allow the basing of such (U.S.) boost phase missile
defense platforms in Iraq proper. If the U.S. could establish such boost phase missile defense
platforms in Iraq, the Iranian nuclear arsenal would lose 99% of its effectiveness, especially
Of course, the terrorist connection, in terms of
overland deployment of nuclear devices would still be a major problem. And given this
problem, I personally cannot see how the United States could stand by and allow the Iranian
mullahs to continue towards the development of any kind of nuclear weapon manufacturing

The terrorists are like a bunch of stupid sharks. Blood

The Brake Pedal
Monday, October 25, 2004, 10:12 PM PDT||
To every soul on earth, I would say this.
This world is God's response to your desire to live in
rebellion. You have followed the fallen angels, yes even the rock stars, and as they fell, and as
you followed them in their downward trajectory, God held out his hand to catch you before you
fell totally into the abyss of non-being from whence no soul ever emerges. This is the world
you see around you. The hand of divine mercy, shimmering with the qualities of paradise in
many respects. With many golden ladders, if you can find them, that will allow you to climb
back up into your heavenly estate. This is the purpose of life. To find the brake pedal. To stop
the descent. And to start climbing once again.

Kerry's Un-American Heart
Monday, October 25, 2004, 10:08 PM PDT||
Senator John Kerry likened Ho Chi Minh, the
Communist Dictator of North Vietnam, to George Washington. In as much as George
Washington laid the foundation for more than 200 years of freedom under God, and counting,
and Ho Chi Minh laid the foundation for generations of enslavement under the boot of a
materialistic, Atheistic, and totalitarian Communism for the peoples of both North and South
Vietnam, what does this say about the heart of John Kerry? This much is for sure. That heart
cannot tell the difference between a true friend of freedom and a true enemy of freedom. And
therefore, we can say that in that heart, the flame of freedom itself does not burn. A heart in
which the flame of freedom does not burn is un-American. It is a heart of darkness.
If you want more recent proof, look at how candidate
John Kerry treated the visiting interim prime minister of Iraq, a man who is standing for
freedom against the greatest odds, and with threats against his life every day. What does John
Kerry do to this man? The very first time Iraqi interim Prime Minister Ayad Allawi visits
America, and gives a speech before a joint session of Congress, John Kerry trashes him. The
only thing John Kerry has for Ayad Allawi, a true friend of freedom, is criticism, doubt, and

I am listening to the supporters of John Kerry
complain about how President Bush has made Iraq into a "magnet" for terrorism. They think
this is a horrible thing. Look at them wring their hands in the face of what is actually a
blessing for our nation, and the entire Middle East region. This hand wringing represents yet
another, of the many and varied examples of their strategic blindness.
This is the truth. It is a GOOD thing that we are
drawing the terrorists into Iraq, so we can kill them there. It is a good thing that we are drawing
the terrorists into Iraq so American troops armed to the teeth, can squash them like so many
bugs. This is a much better situation than expecting the people in downtown New York to get
out their body armor, and their machine guns, roll their tanks out of their garages, and to fight
the terrorists on their own front lawns.
So, John Kerry supporters are wrong. And they are so
wrong, it is amazing that the human mind can remain functional under the pressure of such
irrationality, such conceptional chaos.
One of the things that underscores how wrong they are,
is the fact that they are not even thinking about what a boon this is to the democratic
aspirations of the people in other Middle East countries. This is so obvious. If we are drawing
terrorists into Iraq from surrounding countries, and we are killing them in Iraq, that means they
won't go home. That's right! They won't go home! That means that there will be fewer
terrorists in Jordan, in Egypt, in Yemen, in Saudi Arabia, in Iran, in Syria, in Lebanon, in the
West Bank. That is good for the people of these nations. When the good people of these
nations decide they want to stand up for their own freedom, their own democracy, there will be
fewer of these terrorists in their own nations to oppose them. That is a good thing.

American People Live with this Contradiction?
Monday, October 25, 2004, 9:38 PM PDT||
During the debate last night, Senator John Kerry was
reminded of his FAMOUS statement before the U.S. Senate Foreign Relations Committee in
1971, when he said, referring to the war in Vietnam, "How do you ask a man to be the last man
to die for a mistake?" Of course, just moments before, Senator John Kerry said that invading
Iraq was a MISTAKE. And so, the moderator asked him, in light of his famous comment, if he
would be asking soldiers in Iraq to die for a mistake. Even after referring to the Iraq War as a
mistake, he still said no. But later in the debate he referred to Iraq as a mistake again. Clearly,
he believes that Iraq as a mistake. Somehow, he thinks that the soldiers don't have ears.
KERRY: Well, you know, when I talked about the $87 billion, I made
a mistake in how I talk about the war. But the president made a mistake
in invading Iraq.
LEHRER: ... Speaking of Vietnam, you spoke to Congress in 1971,
after you came back from Vietnam, and you said, quote, "How do you ask a man to be the last
man to die for a mistake?"
Are Americans now dying in Iraq for a mistake?
KERRY: No, and they
don't have to, providing we have the leadership that we put -- that I'm offering. I believe that
we have to win this.
KERRY:Secretary of State Colin Powell told this president the Pottery
Barn rule: If you break it, you fix it.
Now, if you break it, you made a mistake. It's the wrong
thing to do. But you own it. And then you've got to fix it and do something with it.
Actually, this analogy doesn't hold any water. When
you break something, yes, you pay for it. But the broken pieces are swept into the trash can.
That's what happens in real life. And that's what Kerry would do with the Iraqi people, just like
he did with the South Vietnamese people. He would sweep them into the dust bin of tyranny.
And so, does John Kerry really believe that we have to
win this? I don't think so. He is only saying that so that those in his own party who are still
sane, will still vote for him. There are still some honorable people in the Democrat Party. But
this contradiction makes clear that if he is elected president, at the appropriate time, his head
will fill up with all the necessary excuses, which will enable him to cut and run. His true
feelings about wars for freedom were communicated to us in 1971. "How do you ask a man to
be the last man to die for a mistake?" Can you imagine how blind a soul has to be to say that
when millions of hearts are yearning for freedom, as these words are coming out of his mouth?
This is a very dark soul. This is the true expression of John Kerry's dark soul, and you can be
sure that he will abandon the Iraqi people to a future of slavery, just as quickly as he abandoned
the people of South Vietnam to a future of slavery. If you really believe something is a
mistake, you will not put any energy into it. You will cut your losses, and get out. That is what
we can expect from John Kerry, and to the shame of America, and her people, if he is elected.

2004 Front Page - Morya Tests our Trueness
Sunday, October 24, 2004, 1:25 PM PDT||
I am continuing to work diligently to complete the
Journal Front Page for October 2004. Among other things, it will contain two (2) more
earthshaking exposes on the entry of the forces of corruption into the church leadership. These
things must be exposed so they can be eliminated. They must be eliminated so that the
organization can move onto the next phase of expansion. Remember the words of our Beloved
El Morya. He said he was ready to inaugerate a new phase of expansion that would bring
millions into the Teaching. I think I remember that correctly. But he also said that he must be
sure that we are true to him. And that means true to the Will of God, and loyal to the Divine
Here, this is what he said in a dication given in April
of 1995, "Since I am about to sponsor millions of souls for this
activity and this Path, I must be certain that you who are here and who form the foundations of
this Community throughout the earth are true to me. You must be true to the souls who are
entering in." (Vol. 38 No. 26)
Isn't that interesting? He said, "I must be
certain ..." What does that mean? When the Master is certain about something,
that means that he doesn't have a single doubt in his mind about it. Wouldn't that be amazing
to have the Master El Morya look upon us, and in his mind he has no doubt about our trueness,
we have shown it so many times to him, that he no longer wonders at all. He no longer factors
in any percentage of uncertainty, when it comes to us passing our tests of trueness. Whenever a
test of trueness comes upon us, he is certain that we will prove true, yet again.
Unfortunately, there are many events and situations
that have occurred within the collective life of our community, that makes it impossible for this
Master to have such a level of certainty.
How can Morya be certain of our trueness,
when WE indulge a Church Manager so mired in rebellion, that she will plan a performance in
King Arthur's Court which includes a Beatles' song, and who will perform that Beatles' song
herself, on the very Altar of the Holy Grail? How can Morya be certain of our
trueness, when WE indulge a Church Manager who will not admit to any mistake in this
regard, and to whom the spirit of repentance appears alien? How can Morya be certain
of our trueness, when we indulge a leadership generally, who to a person, has no spine to stand
up and say that was wrong and demand accountability? How can Morya be certain of
our trueness, when the membership has allowed that event to be swept under the rug? How can
Morya be certain of our trueness, when WE indulge a leadership team who will shut
off El Morya's own keynote, at the beginning of the first, and last, meeting between that
leadership and the Moscow Study Group? Remember, and don't ever forget this. Their first
act was to shut OFF El Morya's keynote. I pray for the day when the implications of that
finally sink in. How can Morya be certain of our trueness, when WE have a leadership
team who will destroy the unity of the Russian congregation, and the membership allows that to
swept under the rug as well? How can Morya be certain of our trueness, when WE
have a leadership team who will destroy a thriving ascended master publishing operation, again
in Russia, and the membership allows that to be swept under the rug as well? How can Morya
be certain of our trueness, when the organization has a resolution process to resolve
disputes and allegations, but the church leadership refuses to apply it in high profile situations?
In other words, in any situation that might expose their own corruption? How can Morya be
certain of our trueness, when the membership at large will stand by and allow the
leadership to trample all over due process principles? How can Morya be certain of
our trueness, when a prominent piece of art used for meditation purposes, and has been printed
on the front cover of many books now, turns out to be an icon of the homosexual movement,
and 99.999% of the membership turns a blind eye, refusing to raise a peep in way of objection?
I could go on, and I will go on. You can be certain of that.
How is it that the membership of this organization has
become so spineless? That's what I'd like to know.
You can be certain of this. All of these points, and
more, were tests of trueness to the heart of the Master El Morya, and we have failed them, each
In that statement, made by the Master El Morya, you
have the clearest equation for expansion. Look for all situations which test our trueness to the
Master El Morya. Look for those situations! Be vigilant and watchful. And when they come
upon us, we must use that precious opportunity to prove our trueness, not our spinelessness!
Every single situation that has come before us, wherein our trueness has been tested, and we
failed that test of trueness, and I have listed several here, what? Do we just forget? Is that
supposed to solve the problem of El Morya's uncertainty? Make no mistake about it, that is
the problem. All of these failed tests, makes the Master very uncertain regarding our trueness,
and therefore, no expansion can take place under those circumstances. He said it, "I must be
certain ... " For expansion to take place, we must give the Master El Morya tangible
reasons to be CERTAIN about our trueness.
And therefore, what is the path for us, what direction
must we go, to help erase the Master's uncertainty? How to we get from point A, to point B in
this respect? How do we get from that condition, which amounts to complete uncertainty in
regards to our trueness, to complete certainty in regards to our trueness? We go back and we
identify each situation in which our trueness was tested, wherein we failed that test. We go
back and we make amends. We revisit each situation, and we bring the Divine Law to bear on
each of those situations. And we pass those tests.
This is no different than any college course. The tests
that are given, must be passed. You don't get to go around the tests. If you fail those tests, you
go back to the very same tests that you failed, and you retake those tests until you pass them.
When the Master El Morya is testing our trueness, when we fail one of those tests, we must go
back and pass them. We must, or we cannot move forward.
I am the goose that lays the golden egg of realization
in this respect. Really, I am that goose. I am going to sit on that egg until it hatches. I am
going to sit on that egg until it hatches, until that realization blossoms in the minds of every
member of this community. You see, the Master has given us the equation for expansion. It is
so simple. If you desire the organization to expand, if you desire for these teachings to reach
millions, you must adhere to the equation given by the Master. Each time your trueness to the
Master El Morya is tested, you must pass that test. And if you don't pass it, you must go back
and pass it. You can't walk forward in this condition of mindless wishful thinking that you can
abandon those tests, and everything will be ok. No, they will not be ok. You must turn around,
you must go back, and you must pass those tests! You must. Thereby, as the frown on the
Master's face, begins to turn into a smile, as each test is passed, when the Master is finally
CERTAIN that you are true to him, and I am speaking to the whole community, then, and only
then, will expansion occur. And so the road to expansion is in the resolution of these grievous
corruptions of the Teaching that we have before us now. These items must be resolved in truth.
That is the only way forward.

Three Strategic Points
Sunday, October 24, 2004, 12:42 PM PDT||
In the first presidential debate, Senator John Kerry
asserted that President Bush made a mistake by launching a war to oust Saddam Hussein. And
he goes on to say that it was a diversion from what he considers more pressing problems
associated with the nuclear weapons development programs in Iran and North Korea. This
argument proves that Senator John Kerry is not fit to be the Commander-in-Chief of U.S.
Armed forces, lacking the essential capacity to understand the strategic equation.
The fact is, that President Bush's decision to take out
Saddam Hussein in March of 2003, was the right war, at the right time, for the right reasons.
There are three strategic points which validate this conclusion.
First, Iran and North
Korea were on everyone's radar screen at the time. Here are problems potentially huge, that
might require the deployment of U.S. military forces to deal with them some time in the future.
But, there is still a diplomatic track that must be walked before those problems reach a head in
that respect. And therefore, there was a window of opportunity, where U.S. Forces could take
care of the Saddam Hussein situation. At that point in time, there was nothing standing in the
way of the United States to take the necessary action to set Iraq free. If we would have waited,
this situation would have changed, probably very quickly. Remember that God will meet us
half way. If we do something that is right, he will extend his hand to help us, to hold back the
waters as it were, as we cross over, with the Iraqi people, from tyranny to freedom. If we had
not acted at the time, not done the right thing, there would be no hand holding back the waters.
In other words, there is every reason to believe that other problems would have spiraled out of
control in accelerated manner, whether it would have been another devastating terrorist attack
in the United States, or whether it would be the problem with Iran, North Korea, and perhaps
even in the Taiwan Straits. The window of opportunity would have closed, they always do, and
the Iraqi people would have remained in bondage, while the American people had their hands
full fighting in conflicts far more devastating.
Second, in regards to
the looming problem with Iran, if it does turn out that U.S. Military forces must eliminate the
Iranian Nuclear threat, the move into Iraq puts us into the position to better do that. U.S. Forces
are based now, right across the border. Lightening strikes could be launched against the Iranian
nuclear weapons development programs with ease. And so, this gives our President much more
leverage over the Iranian Mullahs than would have been the case if we had not sent our forces
in to Iraq to remove Saddam Hussein. To miss this point, but to argue at the same time about
the gravity of the Iranian situation, makes John Kerry look like he is strategically brain dead.
Third, in regards to the
looming problems with both Iran and North Korea, the move of U.S. Military forces into Iraq
adds a deterrent factor to both of these equations. Leaders on the other side are always trying to
predict what the U.S. might do, if they do this, or they do that. They are always in the process
of taking the measure of the U.S. President in this regard. The move of U.S. Military forces into
Iraq removes all uncertainty from the minds of America's adversaries. The leaders of Iran and
North Korea don't have to wonder, or theorize about the potential for a U.S. Military response.
There it is, right on the table, right in front of their faces. They know, that under President
George W. Bush, America will not sit on its hands. They know, that if they try to strap a holster
around their waists, this President will draw, and shoot them dead before they get it buckled.
And so, they are much more likely to keep their gun belts in a drawer in the garage. This helps
to keep the peace.
The fact that Senator John Kerry makes arguments that
trample all over these important strategic factors, makes it clear that he is totally unfit to be the
Command-in-Chief of the United States Armed Forces.

Messenger on Freedom of Speech and the Press
Friday, October 22, 2004, 8:15 PM PDT||
Many thanks to Peggy, one of our Lighthouse Keepers,
for finding this very important invocation given by the Messenger. It is ironic, to a very
extreme degree, to hear the Messenger stand before the altar and demand from the heavenly
hosts their intercession to guard, and I quote, " ... Christ-confirmed
right to complete freedom of religion and conscience and freedom of speech to voice the fruit
of the inner communion freedom of assembly for the congregation of the righteous and
all people to choose to assemble, to speak out, no matter what their condition or rank; freedom
of the press, that we might publish the word of truth and that all might publish their point of
view regarding events." It is ironic, on the one hand, to feel the glad surge of our
heart flame in response to these noble sentiments, but on the other, to be hit in the face by this
contradiction, wherein the current leadership moves in exactly the opposite direction, using
their institutional power to stuff a gag in the mouth of anyone who says something that offends
them. Here, the entire spirit of the Great White Brotherhood speaks through the Messenger.
This is the standard. And the current leadership is in a woeful state of rebellion against this
I claim, as a Son of God, and as the publisher of
Homeward Bound - the Journal of Ascended Master Devotion, the fruit of this call. Yes, " ... that all might publish their point of view regarding
events." I am sure, that when the Messenger made this call, that the Spirit of God
that spoke through her, did not intend that these rights be denied to me, or to anyone in this
community. In as much as I have done nothing more than publish my point of view regarding
events, I place my request before the entire membership of this organization that my Keepers
of the Flame membership be restored.

Messenger's Invocation before the Dictation:
"Lord God Almighty, we stand with great joy, thy
Spirit of Liberty, and thy God-determination to face the forces that move against freedom in
America and in every nation. Therefore, we summon the hosts of the Lord in the name of Jesus
Christ to drive back the hordes of Darkness, the demons out of Death and Hell, and the fallen
angels that would tear from us and any and all people of God upon earth their God-ordained,
Christ-confirmed right to complete freedom of religion and conscience and freedom of speech
to voice the fruit of the inner communion freedom of assembly for the congregation of
the righteous and all people to choose to assemble, to speak out, no matter what their condition
or rank; freedom of the press, that we might publish the word of truth and that all might publish
their point of view regarding events.
"We demand the turning back of all forces of Darkness,
organized or not, in or out of embodiment, pitted against the light of this freedom and
especially the light that we bear in the Church Universal and Triumphant and all religions and
churches, all political groups, all those who would form their associations for the cause of the
advancement of their ideas or their persons.
"In the name of the living Word, we champion the right of
the Goddess of Liberty and her legions to stand in this land and everywhere upon this planet to
defend this flame of Liberty.
"O mighty threefold flame of Life, come forth. And now,
by the right hand of Lord Gautama Buddha, beloved Mother Mary, Helios and Vesta, in the
name of Jesus Christ, we say: Hosts of Light, turn them back, confute and confound them now,
and raise up the banner of thy living Word unto all people. Let religious and political
fanaticism and the demons and discarnates thereof go down! Let those who have made
themselves the policemen and women of others' faith and conscience and others' way of life
also be bound by the hosts of the Lord. Let the bells of freedom ring! Let the Light shine forth,
"Hear my call, beloved Father, beloved Son, beloved Holy
Spirit. O eternal Mother, come to our aid in this hour. Let Light prevail, and let every child of
God coming to this planet be guaranteed this freedom to grow and to prosper with life and
liberty and the pursuit of happiness.
"O Jesus Christ, let thy twelve legions of angels at thy
command descend now from the heart of the Father to defend the twelve gates of the City
Foursquare that all who would might enter in and know thee as thou art the true and
living witness of our Christhood.
"Therefore in thy name I AM THAT I AM, we rejoice in
Thy Victory through us."

Shoots Kerry in Foot
Friday, October 22, 2004, 7:32 PM PDT||
The Democratic National Committee has released a
new ad featuring a soaring eagle, and an ostrich with its head stuck in the sand. They expect
the American people to see John Kerry as the eagle, and President Bush as the ostrich. What
Anyone who has their head screwed on straight, I
mean, cross threading is problem for some people, will see it exactly the opposite way.
Who had the vision, far reaching, that detected a threat
in Saddam Hussein's capacity to hand of weapons of mass destruction to terrorists, which they
would use to destroy America cities, and moved to squash that threat? President George W.
Bush. Who has the grand vision for the Middle East? President George W. Bush. Who
believes, and who sees, that democracy and freedom can be anchored in the Middle East, just as
it has been anchored here? President George W. Bush. Who has the vision of a free Iraq, and
the transforming effect that a free Iraq would have on the entire Middle East? It is President
George W. Bush. Who has the vision of fighting the terrorists on their home turf, rather than
on our home turf? It is President George W. Bush. Who SEES the need to protect America
from ballistic missile attack, and is willing to do something about it? President George W.
Bush. Common sense tells us, that in every area of critical importance, President George W.
Bush has the eyes of the eagle, and Senator John Kerry, like the ostrich, has his head stuck in
the sand of denial.
The eagle is a symbol of freedom. Who exemplifies
that symbol the best? Is it President George W. Bush who leads us forward on this noble
mission to set 50 million people free, in both Afghanistan and Iraq? Or is it John Kerry who
says that our efforts in Iraq are a mistake? The American people will decide who is who. This
ad sets the question squarely before the people. Unfortunately for Kerry, the answer is too

Kerry's Words are a Dagger in the
Thursday, October 21, 2004, 8:55 PM PDT||
Heart of all that is Good and True.
Please put yourselves in the shoes of the true friends
of freedom in Iraq, and they are in the millions and millions and millions. A door has opened
for them, and the fresh air of liberty and the light thereof, floods into the room, and they gulp
down with great relish the fresh oxygen of new hope.
Yes, there is a great struggle at the door, with the
forces of terrorism trying to slam it shut, and the forces of freedom, Americans with their brave
Iraqi friends, giving their lives to keep it open. In the struggle, the door is pushed closed, and
then pushed open, and pushed closed, and pushed open again, day by day the struggle goes on,
and the radiant beams of freedom's sunlight, trying desperately to shine through, will fall
brightly at one time, and then it is blocked at another, growing bright and dim, as the struggle
over that door continues. Hope, and courage itself, ebbs and flows in the dappled interior of this
And so enter Senator John Kerry, speaking to the
millions who have lived in that dark room for so long, and he tells them, that America's effort
to open that door was a mistake. Can you imagine what a cloud of dismay enfolds their hearts
when they hear that the effort to open that door was a mistake? What they see is the door
closing again upon them forever. What a bummer. Even as the Americans who struggle to keep
that door open beckon to the Iraqi people to step up and help them keep it open, they hold back,
because they hear the open door is a mistake. Both confusion and despair, not to mention the
ever present fear, enfolds the new emerging flame of freedom. Will it survive? Clearly, the
idea that the Americans might leave at any moment, which is the scenario communicated by
Kerry, by telling them that our presence there was a mistake, does not encourage sacrifice. It
does not fan the flames of courage. No, it is like a bucket of water poured, with such evil intent,
upon the flame of liberty itself.
And as our soldiers give their all to keep that door
open, what a cloud of dismay covers their own hearts when they hear Kerry tell them that the
effort in which they are involved, to open that door, and to keep it open, is a mistake. It tears at
the very heart of their resolve. It is a tough battle, for the terrorists inflict great pain upon them,
both physically, and psychologically. It is a great test of will to stand with your shoulder
against that door to keep it open, even as bullets and shrapnel pierce the bodies of your best
friends, and they fall at your side. They struggle within themselves to hold the line, to keep that
door open, and then to hear Kerry say that it was all a mistake. His words are a dagger in the
heart of all that is good.
John Kerry is a betrayer of freedom, a fallen angel,
classic in his use of sophistry, logic consuming itself by its very contradictions, making a mush
of the thoughts and feelings of the people, and making surrender itself, O what irony, and
retreat too, into virtue, clearing the way for the delivery of millions back into the bondage of
terror, fear, and tyranny.

Emerald Jewel Precipitated from the Threefold Flame
Thursday, October 21, 2004, 8:51 PM PDT||
The majority, perhaps a bare majority, of Americans
have a sense that President George W. Bush is a good person. They appreciate that he
recognizes the Providence of God, and that he prays for wisdom every day. They also realize, in
a self-evident manner the importance of freedom, and that President George W. Bush is the
champion of freedom in regards to the people of Afghanistan and Iraq, newly liberated. And
they sense that he has led America in a noble endeavor in this regard. These perceptions are the
product of the presence of the threefold flame in the heart, but that flame is very tiny in many
people, and it flickers in and out, as waves of confusion and doubt wash over the minds of the
I thought therefore, that in the lead up to the election,
that each of us ought to add a short prayer at the beginning of our Tube of Light calls, for that
Tube of Light that we invoke for ourselves, to be extended to every American, and specifically
around this matrix of truth related to President George W. Bush. Let the Tube of Light descend
to guard the integrity of these simple and basic truths as a tiny emerald made manifest in the
minds of every American, and let the jewel be guarded and even raised above the tumult of
astral confusion, so each soul may contemplate its special value and radiance in the lead up to
Instead of just three tubes of light, let us give seven,

Elections Expose the True Consciousness
of the People
Thursday, October 21, 2004, 8:45 PM PDT||
Every four years, we are forced to sweep our delusions
aside, and face the cruel realization that the minds of millions of Americans are grotesquely out
of step with the flame of truth. We have to admit to ourselves, that when someone says, "The
American people are smart, or intelligent, or wise," that this is an inaccurate generalization.
About 30% qualify as wise, 30% are the opposite of
wise, and the other 30% may be wise on one day, but may not be on another, depending on
which way the wind is blowing. I am not complaining. While this situation may not be exactly
what we want, it is far better to know exactly what IS, than to live in an illusion, believing the
situation to be one thing, and that erroneously, when the opposite in fact is the truth.
And so, let us be grateful, that when election day rolls
around, an accurate snap shot of the American Brain will be taken, and it will show how many
Americans are intelligent, and how many are not. And this knowledge can be useful in making
the appropriate calls to the heavenly host during the intervening four years, as we wait for the
next election when the next snapshot will be taken.
This I think is one of the virtues of democracy.
Democracy, whether the people are smart or dumb, reveals the true state of the people's minds.
After election day, there are no uncertainties. After election day, we know.
And so, this is one thing that argues for the adoption of
some democratic processes within the Summit Lighthouse and Church Universal and
Triumphant Community. Because a democratic process would reveal the truth as to where the
membership is, in terms of their intelligence, it would be in line with the purposes of the
Ascended Masters. After all, haven't we heard the Masters tell us to expose the truth? Well,
there you go. Democracy exposes the truth, one of the most important truths that there is.

Connecting the Dots
Thursday, October 21, 2004, 8:39 PM PDT||
When it comes to making the case for the removal of
Saddam Hussein from power, how can you offer proof of a detonation of a nuclear device in the
United States that never occurred, a detonation that never occurred because Saddam Hussein
was preemptively denied the opportunity to develop such weapons, a detonation that never
occurred because Saddam Hussein was preemptively denied the opportunity to put such
weapons into the hands of terrorists? A boxer lifts up his left arm to block his opponents blow,
which was actually the knockout blow of the match. But the blow was never landed. How can
you offer proof that the blow that was blocked, was the knockout blow? Where is the proof you
can offer for that? That proof is found only within the realm of wisdom. If you are wise
enough to connect the dots, you have all the proof you need. If you are not wise enough to
connect the dots, no amount of argument can produce the fruit of proof in your mind.
Thank God, that in President George W. Bush,
America was given a person who could connect the dots, and because of it, hundreds of
thousands of innocent Americans, in some future time and place, will go on living, where,
along another time line, they would have all gone up in the flash of a nuclear detonation.
Without vision, the people perish. This President has
vision, and because of it, those American's will live.

Reader Feedback - The Editor Responds
Thursday, October 21, 2004, 12:37 PM PDT||
Here is an interesting response that I received to the September 2004 Front Page, that I
would like to share with you, and my response as well, which is included below.
"From reading your
newsleter I understand that our organization has severed its ties with you as a Keeper of the
Flame. This brings great sadness to me that someone with your obvious talents and gifts would
engage in such deep seated rebellion against God and his Messengers - the thread of contact
you once had with the Hierarchy through the Keepers of the Flame fraternity is now gone. The
group in my area has given numerous decrees for your lifestream that you might be cut free
from your continued rebellion, criticism, and condemnation and we will continue to decree for
you. May God and the Ascended Masters have mercy on your soul."
This reader, who I am sure is a sincere ascended
master student could out on the street, and find herself a fundamentalist Christian, introduce
that person to the Teachings of the Ascended Masters, and they will tell her, that the Ascended
Masters are devils, and that she was a devil worshiper. They will tell her that she is servant of
Satan. And that fundamentalist Christian would say that sincerely. They will believe it
sincerely. But sincerity does not make it true.
Though their sincerity, extended out of the dark side of
life, will penetrate into your heart, like unto a dagger tipped with the poison of despair, and for
a time, your own confidence and hope in the Teaching will be struck down, and replaced by a
certain amount of doubt and dismay. You will search your soul. And after the encounter,
perhaps after a few hours, or maybe a day, because it takes time for a person to regain their
balance, you will look back, and you will reject their words totally, because you know what
they say is not true.
And so, when this reader tells me, that I am in
rebellion against God, and that the thread of contact has been cut, that is the same sort of thing.
She sincerely believes it. I am sure of that. But her sincerity doesn't make it true, any more than
the sincerity of a fundamentalist Christian makes what they say true, or any more than my own
sincerity makes what I say true. That's right.
Given the fact that sincerity is no sign of veracity,
either yours, mine, or anybody else's, how can you arrive at a conclusion, as to what the truth
First, our actions, and our thoughts, must be in
conformity with the Teaching. This is the first indicator. The sprit of truth is always in
alignment with the Law set forth in the Teaching. If a belief, an action, any behavior is not in
alignment with the law, then the spirit of truth is not associated with those actions, beliefs, or
behavior. I believe sincerely, that my actions are conformity with the Teaching.
This statement, set forth by this reader, by the way,
indicating her support of a rebel as a Church Manager are not in alignment with the Teachings.
Nowhere in the Teachings does it say that we must bend the knee before dweller-fused
individuals. No, the Teaching says exactly the opposite. It demands that their errors be
challenged, and that we oppose their efforts towards corruption with all the force of our being. I
believe that I am in harmony with this aspect of the Law and the Teaching, just as Jesus was in
perfect harmony with the Law and Teaching, when he ran the money changers out of the
All of my writing, targeted at the corrupted actions of
the church leadership, sets forth various aspects of the Law in this regard. The money changers
must be run out of the Temple. Jesus had his whip, made out of strands of leather, if I
remember correctly. And he confronted them, and struck them physically, like unto so many
cattle, and he herded them out. Put the fear of God into them he did. For my part, I have my
pen. I am using my pen towards the same end, to run the money changers out of the Temple.
Now, given the fact that a delineation of the law
towards this end, in and of itself, does not seem to be persuasive to some, I have put a lot of
effort into forging another approach to help the members of this organization reach the correct
conclusion regarding the fact that I am serving the truth, and not error. If you take the time to
look, you will see.
In this regard, I have presented documentary proof that
the Ascended Masters pour the treasure of the sacred fire into my temple, as a reward for work
well done. And in the process I have described many fundamental characteristics of the path,
that should appear familiar. I have described the characteristics of the sacred fire at length, and
in much detail. Here is the treasure of God, poured into my temple, described and documented
at great length. The only person who could explain such a thing, is a person who is passing his
or her tests.
Clearly, I believe that this reader, who has made such
a statement, and many others, are firmly gripped by error, when they accuse me of Rebellion
against God. What tells me that they are gripped by error? Obviously the treasure of heaven is
not poured into the temple of anyone who is in rebellion against God. And this refutes in the
most absolute manner the assertion that the thread of contact has been cut. And besides, my
contact, my communion, with the Masters, and through their heart flames, God our Father and
Mother, is not a thread, it is like unto a strong golden rope. And so, my highest experience tells
me that these people are in error.
And so here, in regards to this documentation of the descent of the sacred fire, is a point of persuasion for
this reader, and all others, that will enable them to leave the domain of error, and come into the
domain of truth. Here is a doorway, that they can pass through that will lead from a very dark
room of misconception and falsehood, into a very bright room of reality and truth. I ask them
to study what I have said in my most recent article, on the subject of the sacred fire, its
definition, its description, and the documentation that proves that the Masters release that
blessed sacred fire into my temple. Here is the basis for reaching a firm conclusion that I am
serving the purposes of God and the Ascended Masters. Here is the link to the article.
This is not for the aggrandizement of my person. This
is presented with the hope that you will understand finally, that I am speaking the truth, and
that you should stop in your tracks now, and turn around from following those who are leading
you over a cliff of spiritual failure, even as they promise you the moon. Be faithful to the
Teaching, to the Masters, and to the organization which they founded. But stop supporting a
leadership that is leading the membership into an ever gathering darkness of confusion and
error. Yes, stand up and stop them from corrupting the Teaching and the organization which
the Masters and the Messengers gave their lives to bequeath. Yes, divide the real from the
unreal within the organization itself. Keep the real, cast out the unreal.
As you study and review this material, here
is the link to the article, then you will come to understand, you will finally see, that my
efforts have always been directed at safeguarding the Ascended Master Mission, and never to
detract from it. The only thing I am asking, is that leaders be in alignment with the Teaching.
That's all. To whom much is given, much is expected. Because they have been given so much,
their alignment to the Teaching must be next to perfect. And where their alignment is not next
to perfect, they must quickly surrender each out of alignment condition that comes to their
attention, and quickly. To whom much is given, much is expected. When they are not in
alignment with the Teaching, they are to be given an opportunity to come into alignment. When
they refuse to come into alignment, then they must be removed from office. All of this through
an orderly procedure. Yes, perhaps a more civilized way of running the money changers out of
Now, for stated position of this reader to reflect
honesty and integrity, she must review that portion of the case I have set forth in
regards to my assertion that God and the Masters send the great treasure of sacred fire into my
temple. She must read that. She must read my description of this phenomena, and compare it to
her own experience. That is our common ground. That is the foundation of the Path of
Initiation. I describe it in detail. She must review the documentary evidence. And when she
does that, she will find therein, the basis for concluding that there is no fault in me.
And her attention, then, can be directed through the
narrow gate, which is defined by personal accountability on the one hand, and on the other, the
requirement for each student to demand accountability from our leaders. You see, when she
understands that I am telling the truth, she will then understand that she is, and has always
been, personally accountable before the law, for holding our leaders accountable. There, the
responsibility for self-government falls on the shoulders of the Christ, and it is distributed
among the membership as each one allows the flame of truth and wisdom to burn brightly
within their crown chakras.
It is all about honesty and integrity. How can you
expect the Masters to look favorably on you, when you will not even make the effort to read
this information that I have set forth? When you reach your judgements, without making this
effort, what are the Masters to think of you? What will they think? They will think, "Here is a
soul who will not extend to another, what she herself would want everyone to extend to her."
Do you see? If you were in my shoes, and you made
the effort to help people understand a position you were taking on an important issue, you
would sincerely desire for them to heed what you have said, to consider it, and to weigh it
thoughtfully. And so, as you refuse to do so, as you refuse to thoughtfully weigh what I have
set forth, you are breaking the Golden Rule. That's right. You are breaking the Golden Rule.
You are not doing unto another, as you would have them do unto you. Quite the
opposite. You are doing unto another, exactly the thing you would NEVER want anyone to do
unto you. Never in a million years would you want all of the efforts you made towards helping
people understand your position on an important issue, be swept off the table without any
consideration at all. Never in a million years would you want that. And so, knowing this to be
the case, and to the depth of your soul, how can you stand before the Altar, and feel righteous in
your judgment of me? How can you do that? You cannot feel righteous. You know you have
broken the Golden Rule in this respect, and that knowledge can only produce a sense shame.
And so, what do the Masters think of you, if you refuse
to review the material that could sweep aside your own misconceptions, producing a posture of
justice in your own soul, related to one whom you currently revile? For you see, to hold a gross
misconception about another, is to harbor a posture of injustice towards that person. And of
course, as we ponder this truth, we remember the words of the Master, when he said, what you
have done to the least of these, you have done unto me.
And so, as you hold this posture of injustice, what do
the Masters think of you? They do not condemn you. They only have the highest hopes for
you, and the highest regard for your potential, and your possibilities. But they will only observe
what is true. Looking in your direction, they will say, "Here is a soul who has been given the
opportunity to apply the Golden Rule to another soul, and she has refused to do so. Yes, it is
obvious enough. She has rebelled against the Golden Rule. And so, what can we give her, in
terms of higher initiations? With sadness, we cannot give her very much, because the
propensity to break the Golden Rule, is the presence of a very great darkness. We cannot take
the chance of adding to that darkness. We cannot take the chance of giving her big hugs,
because that would confuse her into believing that breaking the Golden Rule is a good thing. Is
it not a good thing. When our students have an opportunity to apply the Golden Rule, especially
in difficult situations, we expect them to do it. That is what we have taught Lo these many
decades, and even centuries. And therefore, given her disobedience in this respect, we must
stand apart from her, and not encourage her at all in her disobedience. She must surrender that
darkness which encourages her to shun the Golden Rule, before we can lead her up the
And so, I would say to this reader, that she is facing a
great test here. Probably one of the most important tests in her life. Will she bend the knee
before the Golden Rule, or won't she? Will she shove it off the table with disdain, as so much
unwanted refuse? Or will she embrace it, as if it were a tiny child, who is looking only for the
arms of the mother? What is the Golden Rule to you? How do you see it? Do you see the
Golden Rule as a loathsome cockroach to be swept off the table and squashed under the heel of
your boot? Or do you see the tiny Christ Child there, holding its arms out for you to pick him
up, and embrace in your own arms? What do you see there? And what will you do?
Of course, if she takes this opportunity to apply the
Golden Rule to me, the Masters will reach a different conclusion. They will still have the
highest hopes for her soul. Those hopes never dim. But because she has seen the Golden Rule as
the very golden nugget of Christ potential, and made the effort to apply that Golden Rule to me,
they will note a new flicker of the flame of obedience there, and they will desire to add to it,
and the law will allow them to add to it, and thus, they will be able to transfer a greater light
into her temple, and in this way their highest hopes are at least partially fulfilled, for they live
and serve for only one purpose, to set us free from darkness, and to expand the light in our
temples, and in that way to help us climb the highest mountain.
And so, the challenge is before her. The entire Spirit of
the Great White Brotherhood is challenging her, and all members who hold me in derision, to
apply the Golden Rule to me. Every molecule of Light throughout the entire cosmos, is
challenging her, and them, right at this very moment, to do unto me, what they would have
others do unto themselves under similar circumstances. Standing your ground for the victory of
a particular principle, you would want others to pay heed to what you have to say in defense of
your own stand, particularly when you have something to say that proves that God is on your
side. It is well for others to understand this, so they do not oppose God, in opposing you. And
so, each one is challenged now, to do the same unto me. I have set forth, as noted an extensive
exposition (click here) on the issue of the sacred fire and the descent of that power into
this temple. Please read it, study it, evaluate it, and see whether the proof is actually there,
which indicates clearly that the Masters are very very happy with the work I have done.
One last thought. I hope you can see how reasonable it
is for me to conclude, that when people refuse to apply the Golden Rule to me, especially when
it comes to reviewing documentary evidence that would sweep away all misconceptions, that I
am not the one who has the problem.

War with China, over Taiwan, Much
Wednesday, October 20, 2004, 1:46 AM PDT||
More Likely if Kerry is Elected President
Don't look now, but cross strait tensions between
Communist China and Taiwan are again at a fever pitch.
Now, we know that it is the intent of the Communists
to take Taiwan. There are saying this right out in the open. The only "x" factor is in the question
of whether the U.S. will intervene, or not. Or if they do, to what extent will they intervene.
If the Communists could calculate that there was next
to no chance the U.S. would intervene, they would be in Taiwan by tomorrow morning. The
only thing that keeps them out, is the fear that America would come down on them with both
feet. While President George W. Bush is apparently holding fast to the "tradition" of the "One
China Policy" which was formulated over several administrations, beginning with Nixon's trip
to Red China in the early 1970's, to placate the beast, to say whatever you need to say, to keep
this beast from attacking you, he has also departed from the ambiguity of his predecessors, and
stated clearly, that America will fulfill its defense obligations when it comes to the people of
Taiwan. That clarity keeps the Taiwan people free today.
And under this more sturdy umbrella, there are forces
in Taiwan, aligned to the forces of freedom, that are stepping up, and pushing the envelop ever
so slightly, towards a declaration of Taiwan independence. And the Chinese Communists see
this, and they are making it clear, that if this movement towards independence continues, they
will invade. They have said this in clear public statements.
As long as President George W. Bush remains in
office, the Chinese Communists will not make a move, in my opinion, because they know Bush
is a "cowboy". It's ironic, though perhaps it really isn't, that the very thing Europeans hate
about Bush, is the very thing that keeps the people of Taiwan free. The Chinese Communists
know he has the capacity to draw and shoot, yes even in the Nuclear arena. This is not spoken
about publically of course, but this is the big gun he has in his holster. And so, while we cannot
be absolutely certain about it, I think the level of certainty can be about 95%, that this situation
deters the Chinese from fulfilling their LUSTS when it comes to destroying any hope for
long-term freedom in Taiwan. The remaining 5% of uncertainty can be transformed to certainty
if we can remember to make the daily call to the Ascended Masters for the freedom of the
people of Taiwan.
Now, that the whole situation will change if Senator
John Kerry is elected to the Presidency of the United States. Kerry will revert to the ambiguity
of his predecessors when it comes to the defense of Taiwan. And moreover, the Chinese will
read his statements, about the need to go to the UN first, before any military action is taken.
They read his statements, sure of the fact, that if Kerry had been president in 2003, that there
would not be U.S. Troops in Iraq today.
And so, the Chinese will make a new calculation.
Instead of 99% percent certainty that they would face an immediate U.S. response to any
invasion of Taiwan, that percentage value, is now reduced substantially. It goes down below
50%, and even lower. Kerry will say things, and he will do things, that will cause these already
deluded minds of the Communists, to adjust their calculations, moving that percentage
threshold down to less than 10%. In other words, they will calculate, that if they invade Taiwan,
there will be less than a 10% chance that America, under the leadership of Kerry, would
Also, we need to understand, that as they look ahead,
they also see the possibility of a change in administrations in 2008, and then again in 2012, and
so forth, and who the American people will elect in those years is unknown, and the equation of
American response in those years therefore will also be an unknown. So they will see the Kerry
presidency as a unique opportunity that might not come again, wherein, during this four year
period, there is an administration elected that will stand by and do nothing, when they invade
Taiwan. This sense of a door of opportunity opening, and a door that will one day close, is
another point of pressure that will help them to decide to jump through it, while it is yet open.
Also, there is another door of opportunity to consider
as well, that the Chinese Communists are mindful of.
One part of their calculation in regards to the
likelihood of an American response, is there own nuclear deterrent (24 or 25 ICBMS, some of
which are capable of reaching the west coast of the U.S.). They give that some amount of
weight in their calculations, but probably not a lot of weight, because when it comes down to it,
a cowboy (Bush) can take those relatively few ICBMS out before they have a chance to use
them. In other words, the very instant U.S. satellites show a Chinese invasion force heading
towards Taiwan, a cowboy will launch a preemptive strike against all those silos, and they
would all go up in a puff of smoke inside 30 minutes. We have that capability. For this reason,
with Bush, the Chinese ICBMS are no deterrent to American action.
But with Kerry, for the reasons specified above, these
ICBM's become a deterrent. This is because they know Kerry is no cowboy. And so, with Kerry,
these ICBMS weigh far heavier in their calculation. They see Kerry as person who pees in his
pants when he thinks about facing ICBMS, and for good reason. Kerry has a record in this area,
in the U.S. Senate bending to Soviet demands in the face of their nuclear threat.
But, the additional weight that this nuclear deterrent
takes on in relationship to a Kerry Presidency, they will see, that they will lose this too, and
quickly, because of President George W. Bush's push towards a deployment of a national
ballistic missile defense, which is proceeding apace now, and is being deployed exactly in the
place where it can intercept Chinese ICBMS.
What is the Chinese calculation as to the efficacy of
this missile defense? In the out years, they will calculate that it will make their ICBM deterrent
of no value, no matter who the U.S. President is. And so, there is a door of opportunity open
now, for them, in terms of using their ICBM forces as a deterrent, especially when it comes to
striking fear into the heart of John Kerry, to terrorize his mind, to force him to stand pat in his
own puddle while they invade Taiwan. You see, Kerry would not stand and fight in Vietnam.
He spent his four months in Vietnam, he got his taste of battle, he took a quick out, and he ran
home with his tail between his legs. His will to fight was destroyed. They see this. He is no
warrior. He has no spine. Don't look at his Vietnam service through the deformed lense of his
campaign supporters. Look at it from the stand point of our enemies. What does it tell them
about his will to stand up and fight against Communist aggression? It tells them that he has no
will to fight. And so, these Chinese ICBM's become an ace in the hole when it comes to John
Kerry. But it is an ace in the hole that will disappear from their hand very quickly, as they see
that door closing in the short term, and shut tight I believe in five years, by the full deployment
of an American Missile Defense.
So, this amplifies greatly, the importance of the next
four or five year period in the minds of the Chinese Communists. The conjunction of a Kerry
presidency, with this particular door of opportunity, in regards to the usefulness of their nuclear
deterrent, which is closing quickly, might be the most important factor there is in helping the
Chinese Communists to decide that they must go now, if they ever go at all.
And given other circumstances that will come to pass
in the next four years, and in this regard you might consider the chaos that might follow
another 911 magnitude terrorist attack against the U.S. homeland, especially in Washington
D.C., additional doors of opportunity will appear to open, wherein the Chinese Communists
will be led to conclude, that given this low probability of an American response anyway, that
these circumstances will foreclose any American response at all, and taking all these other
factors together, they will move.
This is one of the most striking dangers of a Kerry
presidency. The Chinese Communists would be more likely to move on Taiwan, during that
four year period, than they would ever be, at any other time. Seeing this door of opportunity
open to them, they will be highly motivated to jump through it, before it is closed.
And so, some people will say, well, who cares? What
do we have to do with Taiwan? Let them have it if they want it so badly.
The problem with this is, that this attitude helps the
Chinese Communists to move in the direction of a grotesque miscalculation.
And let's be clear about this. Whatever they calculate
regarding America's incapacity to respond, it will be a miscalculation. And you can count on it.
The Asian mind is prone to such miscalculations as we
have seen in our own history. In 1941, the military leaders of Japan, blinded by their own lusts
for territory and power, convinced themselves that America would never come back at them
with any amount of force. In 1950, the North Koreans believed the same. But America did
respond, both times, and America will respond to any invasion of Taiwan even during a Kerry
administration. Why? Because the act of agression forces a clarity upon the mind, that is not
there before the act. Before the act, the mind may be clouded with uncertainty. After the act,
there is no uncertainty. The act focuses the attention. And in that focused condition, the mind
can then see all of the consequences that are associated with allowing any aggression to stand.
This conclusion will occupy the minds of those at the highest leadership positions, and
throughout our Congress. Those who spend all of their work days considering the issues of
American security, will conclude "This cannot stand." It will be so clear, that it will be one of
those timeless self-evident truths. The Congress, Republican controlled, would force the issue,
with an overt Declaration of War, and Kerry will have nothing to say about it. A great tide for
the defense of freedom will rise up through the hearts of God's Children, and we will march
onto that battle field without a second thought.
But, this one will be very costly. And America will
learn a painful lesson, concerning how foolish it is, to show a weak face to the enemy.
The worst thing that the American people could ever
do, would be to elect Senator John Kerry President. The likelihood of war over the issue of
Taiwan, would rise from 5% to 95% overnight.
Let us be mindful of this, and whenever you have a
chance to talk about this issue with anyone, please be sure to explain this important aspect of
the upcoming election.

Ostrich and its Obsession
Wednesday, October 20, 2004, 11:55 PM PDT||
A member of the church staff responded to my
announcement of the Homeward Bound Journal Daily Blogger, with simply the text of the
definition of the word "obsession", taken from Merriam-Webster Online, pasted into the email message. Very clever. Very
cute. The audio links work. Actually, the audio links did not work in his email message. He
them work here. Here they are:
Now, I wondered how I might respond, what single word
definition would be most suitable. I decided on the word "ostrich". I thought that would be
particularly fitting. I found it on Merriam-
Webster Online, and copied it into a reply email, and sent it off. And I hope my
correspondent was impressed.
1 : a persistent disturbing preoccupation with an
often unreasonable idea or feeling; broadly : compelling
motivation <an obsession with profits>
something that causes an obsession
- ob新es新ion戢l損y adverb
Now, what is the Ostrich known for? And what could be
said about what it might be obsessed with? In times of danger, it is obsessed with finding a
hole in the ground into which it can stick its head. And in the dim interior of that hole, it
believes that everything will be ok. Isn't that interesting? Because it cannot see the danger, it
believes the danger does not exist.
'酲-trich, 'os-also -trij
Etymology: Middle English, from Old French ostrusce, from
(assumed) Vulgar Latin avis struthio, from Latin avis bird + Late
Latin struthio ostrich -- more at
1 a : a swift-footed 2-toed
flightless ratite bird (Struthio camelus) of Africa that is the largest
of existing birds and often weighs 300 pounds (140 kilograms) b
: leather made from ostrich skin
2 [from the belief that the
ostrich when pursued hides its head in the sand and believes itself to be
unseen] : one who attempts to avoid danger or difficulty by refusing to
But I say, there is a reason to consider the link
between Anton Lavey, the author the of the Satanic Bible, John Lennon who is clearly a Satan
worshiper, and the tie of sympathy our Church Manager Rev. Linda Worobec has with a Satan
worshiper. That is certainly an upside down triangle if I ever saw one. After all, what was that,
if it was not an obsession, knowing the teaching clearly, but remaining hell-bent on offering up
a John Lennon tune for the listening pleasure of hundreds of ascended master students? And
she will not admit she did anything wrong. She won't bend the knee. Knowledge of this Satanic
tie had been put forward months ago, yet the knees will not bend. Well, this all fits snugly in
one nice little package. What is the fundamental characteristic of Lucifer and Satan? It is
pride. Her pride will not bend, and no wonder, she has some significant support in that area,
but not from the Light.
I would just note, that the word "obsession" is not
properly associated with a persistent focus on an issue, that if addressed, would bring a
tremendous blessing upon all concerned. Read the definition carefully. Coming to grips with
the depth of rebellion exhibited by the church leadership, and moving to eliminate that
rebellion from the church leadership, would provide a tremendous boon to the Ascended Master
Cause. Clearly, from the definition, it is not proper to use the word "obsession" to characterize
a constant and faithful desire to provide such a tremendous boon to the Ascended Master
Cause. Using the word "obsession" in such a situation, would leave one open to the belief that
God himself is obsessed with the salvation of mankind. But that is not the case. The word
"obsession" does not apply to eternal vigilance.

John Kerry is No Hero - This Line of
Wednesday, October 20, 2004, 1:27 PM PDT||
During any one of the three Presidential
Would Have Made that Clear Enough.
Using the word hero to describe Senator John
Kerry, is like using the word gay to describe a homosexual. Both represent a
massive perversion of the English Language.
What was the standard tour of duty in
Vietnam for every single person who served there? The standard tour of duty was
twelve months. That is one full year.
How long did Senator John Kerry serve
in Vietnam? He served four months. That is just one-third, or 33% of a standard
tour of duty.
Why did Senator John Kerry leave after
only four months, when every other person he served with would stay for a full 12
month tour of duty? Why did Senator John Kerry leave early? Why did Senator
John Kerry return to the safety and comfortability of the United States after only
four months, when everyone else had to bear the fire of the enemy for a full 12
Senator John Kerry said that he got
wounded three times, for which he received three Purple Hearts, one for each
wound. Were any of these wounds substantial? No. Did any of these wounds
require him to be hospitalized? No. Was he physically able to return to duty, on
the very same day, after each of these wounds? Yes.
The only reason he was away from his
duty station during any one of these three incidents, was the fact that it took time to
travel to the doctors office. He had to wait to be treated. It took time for the doctor
to put the band-Aid on. And then he had to travel back to his unit.
The third wound is of the most interest,
because this is the wound that allows a serviceman to invoke a special regulation
that allows a person to return to the United States directly after receiving a third
wound. And that is the regulation that Senator John Kerry invoked, and it worked.
He was sent back to the United States directly.
Now, we have published eye witness
testimony, and Kerry's own testimony, that the third wound was only a scratch on
his arm. He doesn't contend that it was any more than that. Yes, there was blood
showing, and therefore it technically qualified as a wound, and he was technically
qualified to receive a Purple Heart for it. But those who saw this, according to a
published account, were all shaking their heads, asking themselves if this guy has
any shame at all, when you see soldiers who have had their legs blown off, or their
arms blown off, or who took an AK-47 round to the chest, or to the stomach, or
even to any extremity, you know, a penetrating wound that would require the
person to have surgery, and to be hospitalized etc. etc., getting the same Purple
Heart that Senator John Kerry is ASKING FOR, for this little scratch on his right
forearm. These more egregious wounds are, after all, the wounds that the Purple
Heart was designed for. For people who pay a heavy price. Yet Senator John
Kerry was personally going out of his way asking for a Purple Heart for this little
scratch on his right arm. Doesn't he know that this doesn't look or appear like
honorable behavior at all?
But that is not the most important
consideration here. The most important consideration has to do with comparing
and contrasting this behavior with what most people consider to be the character of
a hero. Is this the behavior of a hero?
A few additional questions, simple and
very clear, will bring out the truth in this regard. I know that the presidential
debates are now over. But I think it would be ok if we ran them a bit longer,
within the domain of our imagination, so that we can get to the truth here.
Reporter: "Senator Kerry, you
often point to your service in Vietnam as an indicator of the nobility of your
character. And your supporters will often describe you as a hero for your service.
We understand that you left Vietnam after serving only four months out of a
normal 12 month tour of duty. You were allowed to leave because you were
wounded three times. Once a person is wounded three times, he can request to go
back to the United States immediately. And when you were wounded the third
time, you knew exactly what to do, and that's what you did. You got your third
Purple Heart, you invoked this regulation, and you were sent back to the United
States directly. Is that correct?
Kerry: Yes, that's correct.
Reporter: Now, this third wound
has been described by you, and by eye witnesses, as only a scratch on your arm. Is
Kerry: Yes, that's correct.
Reporter: Do you feel any
amount of shame or guilt for asking for a Purple Heart for just a scratch on your
arm, when this medal is designed for those soldiers who lose limbs, and receive
actual bullet wounds which require surgery and extended hospital time?
Kerry: I don't have any problem with that. I wanted to get out of
Vietnam, and that was my ticket out. It was legal. I had three Purple Hearts.
When you have three Purple Hearts, you get to go back home.
Reporter: Concerning the third
wound you received, did this wound make it impossible for you to perform your
Kerry: No, like I said, it was only a scratch. There was nothing about
this wound that would have effected my ability to serve in any way. I could have
played five sets of tennis every morning for the next 8 months without any
Reporter: If there was nothing
deterring you from continuing with your regular duties, why did you choose to
leave Vietnam at that point?
Kerry: I don't understand what you mean.
Reporter: Why did you decide to
leave Vietnam after only four months of duty? Were you afraid to stay? Were you
afraid of being killed, and that is why you left early?
Kerry: No, I was not afraid to stay. I could have stayed. But I didn't
want to stay. I had three Purple Hearts, and regulations say, that if you have three
Purple Hearts, and I had three, you could go home, so I took advantage of that, and
I went home.
Reporter: As I mentioned, many
of your supporters use the word hero to describe your service in Vietnam. If there
was no physical problem associated with your third wound that would get in the
way of the performance of your duties, wouldn't someone who is described as a
hero, choose to stay, and perform those duties, and share the danger, through the
full tour of duty with his buddies? Isn't that what most people would describe as a
hero, and not someone who would take the first ticket out of a dangerous situation?
Kerry: I don't understand what you mean.
Reporter: The quality associated
with being a hero, is the capacity to serve others, to protect their lives, with no
thought for yourself. When a hero is faced with the choice either to leave his
buddies to face the fire of battle, or to join them, in order to make the odds better
against the enemy, and perhaps help them to come out of this alive, most people
would believe that a hero would stay and face the fire of the enemy alongside his
buddies, that is, if you were physically capable of doing so, which you say you
were. Why didn't you stay and face the fire of the enemy alongside your buddies?
Isn't that what a hero would have done?
Kerry: I never described myself as a hero.
Reporter: I understand that in a
war zone that most soldiers experience fear. It's a natural thing. But most soldiers
don't let their fear control their feet. They will think to themselves, if I let my fear
control my feet, I will look like a coward to everyone around me. I don't want to
look like a coward. I will stand my ground. I will fight alongside my buddies.
Now, most people, in your situation would be thinking a very similar thing. If I
am perfectly healthy, and I leave after only four months, while everyone else must
stay for twelve, most people will think that I've lost my nerve, that I'm a coward,
that I'm letting my fear control my feet. Weren't you concerned at the time that
people might think that about you if you took the opportunity to leave after only
Kerry: I don't understand what you mean. Shame? Cowardice? All of
that is irrelevant. The rules are the rules. I had three Purple Hearts, and regulations
say, that if you have three Purple Hearts, and I had three, you could go home, so I
took advantage of that, and I went home.
As the reader can see from this
straightforward presentation of common sense questions, this assertion that Senator
John Kerry is a hero, is completely false. If he was a hero, he would have never
accepted a Purple Heart for a scratch on his arm. If he was a hero, he would have
stayed for his full tour of duty.
This is the truth. Combat scared the living
daylights out of Senator John Kerry. He simply couldn't handle it. It completely
collapsed his will to fight, his will to win. In fact, his fear turned him into a tool
for the enemy. Into a betrayer. He took the quickest path home, and immediately
began to betray the war effort, helping to undermine the morale of our troops and
the American people, trying to convince them that the effort to stand for freedom,
against a totalitarian enemy, was a mistake, that the right thing to do, was to just
stand aside as millions of human beings were delivered into the hands of the forces
of Communism. Only a mind twisted and distorted by a massive amount of fear
could possibly believe that living under Communism is better than being free to
determine your own destiny.
We do not condemn John Kerry. A spine
turned to mush, well, that is something to pity, not condemn. We just ask him to
stop holding this behavior in front of us, as if this is something that should be
respected. Have you no shame? Get some, and be quiet about this.

When I arrived at the top of the hill on my
walk today (Wednesday, Nov. 19, 2003), I saw a very wonderful sight.
Standing at the top of this little hill, and facing south,
the great imposing bulk of Mt. Luminosity rises up to more than 3,000 feet of elevation. It truly
lifts our hearts whenever we take the time to adore its majesty. Today, its rugged countenance
was beautifully serene with its great sandstone escarpments gently illuminated by the
somewhat lower and more southernly autumn afternoon sun. Beneath the great face of our
mountain, an extensive set of foothills march off to the west, progressively descending towards
the Pacific Ocean just a few miles away. The sky was clear blue, with just a few white wisps of
cloud here and there. And set against this wonderful and golden Southern California scene, at
a distance of about a half a mile I would guess, was a flock of about 100 to 200 birds in a very
tight ball-like formation, perhaps 50 yards or so in diameter. And this flock would soar way
up, and glide way down, and bank to the left, and soar upwards again, turning, sweeping widely,
and swooping down again, and bank to the right on the next updraft, soaring up as they turned,
making great sweeping and majestic turns, and this cycle repeated itself several times, in
different variations, as the flock moved off, and out of sight, in the direction of the ocean.
The most amazing thing to watch was the absolute
integrity of the flock as they went through what could only be described as flock acrobatics. It
was amazing. They all turned together. They all soared together. They all swooped down
together. And they all rose together. Every turn they made, they all made the turn together.
Every turn was smooth, and sweeping, and beautiful to behold, and they were all together. Not
one bird fell out of formation during this whole spectacle. You have got to wonder how in the
world all those birds knew when and where to turn. There were clearly more than a hundred
birds flying as one. I am awed to the core just thinking about it, remembering how on each turn
they made, I would wait in fearful anticipation, just waiting for one bird, just one bird, to miss
the cue, and fall out of formation. It never happened. In every case, every one of them stayed
in formation. They were all making those turns in perfect harmony, and all at once.
Now, all the members of this organization should fly
as One. That's clear enough. We should all have that inner guidance, that inner radar, that
would allow that to happen. And in our case, I think we would all do better in this regard if we
had our radar sets tuned to the Law of the One and the Golden Rule.
Now, when the Montana Leadership Team went to
Russia, when they arrived there, there was One Soaring Flock. So far so good.
What I think is a great shame, though, in retrospect, is
that when they left, there were two flocks, both in disarray, flying in different directions. In
other words, because of their influence, because of the decisions they made, the one flock has
become two. And each flock went its way, according to the beat of a different drummer.
Doesn't that tear at your heart?
Please let me know.
[Note: This was a letter that I wrote to the
Elders of this Church. Would it surprise you to know, that what I thought was such a precious
experience, they turned a cold shoulder too, to the very last man and woman?]

and Friend, and Long Time Servant of the Masters,
Office of Information Services, Church Universal
and Triumphant and The Summit Lighthouse,
I just finished listening to the Darshan with the
Messenger, on the subject of the Guru Chela Relationship, which was recorded February 20,
1997. Perhaps you were personally in attendance, and remember the teaching. One aspect of
the Guru-Chela relationship that was spoken about at some length was the subject of the guru's
chastisement of the chela. The Messenger went to great lengths to help the community
understand why it was necessary for the Masters to deliver the "fire" of chastisement through
the Messenger from time to time for the consuming of various out-of-alignment states. After
the lecture, some staff and community members came to the microphone to witness to the
times they were chastised, and to talk about the lessons they learned. This was very interesting.
Perhaps you remember. Perhaps you were even one of those who took to the microphone?
I am sure that everyone who heard this, will remember
Rev. Booth's story about Mark, at the direction of El Morya, smelling the shoes of the staff
members then at La Tourelle. The Master believed that some of the people were allowing their
feet to get too stinky. Of course, this was a metaphor for the buildup of doubt on the 2 o'clock
Pisces line (the feet are plotted on the Pisces line), and this story also formed a nexus with the
teaching Jesus gave 2000 years ago about the washing of the feet. And Rev. Booth also told us
about the time when Mark devoted an entire staff meeting to the subject of how to properly
close a door so that it won't slam as you walk out of a room, or even into a room I suppose. A
whole staff meeting devoted to that simple issue. Isn't that amazing!
Now, I could recount other stories from this Darshan,
but this is probably enough to jog your memory. That's a pretty memorable story about Mark
Prophet smelling the shoes of his staff members. Who could forget that?
This Darshan came to mind when I visited Pearls
Online in search of the Masters Teaching on Ronald Reagan. I am writing a piece on the
subject of Betrayal, and I was reminded that this individual, who appeared to be a friend of
everything good and true, was actually labeled a betrayer by the Masters. Not at first of course,
but only at the end, when his deeds were finally cast into cement. And I thought I would dig
into that and find out exactly what was behind that. And so I visited Pearls Online.
Remember Pearls Online? That is where the precious
Teachings of the Ascended Masters are available to their students for their study and reading
pleasure. This is where the most precious thing we have in all of the universe, The Teaching,
from 1958 to the year 2001, is available to students world wide, at any time of the day or night.
Am I jogging your memory here? This is called Pearls Online. This is called "THINGS OF
EXTREME VALUE" online. Moreover, this is one of those key places within our organization
wherein we find that the technology which St. Germain has given us, has reached the apex of
Divine Purpose. The very apex of Divine Purpose. O yes, I think you must know what I am
talking about now. That's right. Its called Pearls Online. Yes, the project you poured your
whole heart, mind and soul into for so many years if my memory serves me correctly.
And as I confronted this situation that again hit me in
the face, this screaming lack of gratitude, this screaming insensitivity to the value of the
Teaching, this screaming lack of divine will power, I am searching for a word here, what is it,
that describes something that is lackadaisical to the extreme in the face of direct attacks against
the integrity of the Teaching itself, well, if I can't remember the word, I suppose that this is a
word that is not to be used here. It's on the tip of my tongue, but it won't come forth, so I will
just leave it at that. Perhaps you will know what that word is.
I am referring to the fact that all of the paragraphs are
still run together. THE PARAGRAPHS ARE STILL RUN TOGETHER AFTER MANY
MONTHS! Paragraphs are like fingers on a hand. They are separated for purpose! God
Almighty! I could write paragraphs on the importance paragraphs. But why should I have to?
Are you that dense now, that this simple truth is beyond your ability to comprehend, or to act
upon if indeed you comprehend it? Heaven forbid.
Ok, I am not the one who delivers fire. I am no
messenger. My name is not mother.
But, I would bring to your attention the Teachings in
the Darshan just referred to. Do you believe, in your wildest imagination, that you would not
have received a drenching of fire and chastisement the likes of which the world has never
before seen, as you allow the Teaching to be presented in this manner to the students of this
organization! If you do not believe it, you are seriously, seriously, seriously deluded. Either
you fix that Edward, and you fix it now, or you are out the door, and don't come back. That is
exactly what the Messenger would have said after ONE WEEK of this situation, and you would
have fixed it.
What a shadow of darkness that has fallen over you,
that you would not realize that you are in a situation where the Messenger would chastise you
up one side and down the other, and do so for many hours. And yet you do NOTHING to
remedy the situation. NOTHING. Shame on you.
You have allowed this situation to go on, not for days,
not for weeks, and not just for months. We are now starting to count years!
At the very least you ought to be ashamed, deeply
ashamed of yourself. And of the people in leadership around you, they are like people, all of
them, sitting in their corners with their DUNCE caps on. They love their little corners, and
they play their little mind games with the spiders they see crawling on the walls in front of
their narrow little eyes, and you wait for them to give you direction! Strike two against you.
Well, this is one thing I remember about that Darshan.
There are three types of chelas. The first will simply be obedient to the Guru. The second type
of Chela will know what to do at the same time the Guru knows what to do. The third type of
chela will know what to do BEFORE the Guru himself, knows what to do! As you can see, you
have slipped out of even the first category. You are not even being obedient. The Messenger
left a legacy of excellence in the presentation of the word. That is her instruction to you at all
times. And yet, you refuse to be obedient to that legacy. Shame on you. Shame on you. Shame
on you. Shame on you.
You know, I still can't think of that word. I believe it
starts with an "S". But it is not "shame". And it is not serendipity either. Sluggard? O yes!
The word is SLOTH. SLOTHFUL. That is what this represents. It is pure SLOTH. Fix it
Edward for the sake of the members of this community, and for the sake of your own soul.
Climb out of that ditch of slothfulness, and fix it now.
I am taking another lesson from that Darshan. I am
making this rebuke of your slothfulness public, and this for the second time, so that others may
learn from your mistakes. There is nothing more important than the Teaching. To be slothful
in the presentation of it, is simply not an acceptable condition that can in any way be indulged.
Of course, to be slothful in the practice of it, and one's adherence to it, is worse. But that is
another story, even as the members on staff are become more and more the characters in it.

National Strategy for Victory - Recognize
Tuesday, October 19, 2004, 8:19 PM PDT||
our Need for God's Help, and Systematically Seek
The current situation presents
President George W. Bush with an absolutely fantastic, monumental, and
fundamentally historic opportunity to advance the work of God our Father along
several fronts simultaneously. This is one of those key points in the history of
mankind on par with coming of Jesus Christ 2000 years ago. Of course, we are on
the cusp of the Aquarian Age, and one would expect such a door to open right
here, and right now. But we have to recognize that doorway, and walk through it.
Under the leadership of President George
W. Bush, the slide of the American culture into the abyss of moral decay could be
arrested right here, and turned around. The American culture could actually start
climbing upwards towards that Shining City on the Hill, rather than continuing its
apparently irresistible and apparently unstoppable downward slide away from it.
And as the people again start to climb that hill, and they come to occupy that
Shining City, America can become that Golden Age beacon for the rest of the
planet, which God our Father intended from the beginning, fulfilling thereby her
This vision of victory will come to pass if
we the people, and our President, properly leverage the situation that we find
ourselves in. It is as simple as that.
We are in a very tough spot in Iraq.
There's no doubt about it. But that is the context for this monumentally fantastic
opportunity. But let there be no doubt about this. We are in Iraq for a noble
purpose. Restoring the blessings of freedom to God's Children, no matter the
culture, no matter the nation, is always a noble undertaking. But the forces of
darkness, of hatred, of tyranny, are inflicting increasingly excruciating casualties
upon American soldiers, and striking fear in the hearts of the American people.
And because of the pain, and the fear, the specter of defeat for yet another
American dream looms on the horizon. Americans dreamed of freedom for the
people of Vietnam, but that dream was defeated. And now the same monster of
despair looms before us again.
Let's be clear about this. Only the Power
of God, which is applied through the instrumentation of Angelic Legions can
defeat that monster of despair that looms so large now, and will only become larger.
America will not prevail in this great cause if the power of God is not invoked by
And who is so blind as to see not, that the
shadow of that monster has already engulfed the minds of millions of Americans?
And who will be so audacious as to deny that once it has taken up residence within
the soul, that this monstrous shadow will not let go, no, not of its own accord. A
great percentage of the American people have already lost all hope, and we are
only into the difficult part of this great work, less than one year. It took 12 years
and 50,000 dead in Vietnam before Americans surrendered to that monster of
despair. Here, we are into the battle less than a year, and lost only 700 soldiers, and
great swathes of the American public are ready to retreat.
Americans are weaker today, not stronger.
So many modalities of cultural decay have metastasized within the body politic. It is
like the Flag over fort Sumter, shot full of holes by the forces of darkness. How
long can it hold together?
The terrorists read our opinion polls with
glee, and they leap out of bed every morning with renewed hope, that if they can
kill a few more Americans that day, they can defeat the American Giant, and drive
it out of the Middle East for good.
If we do not grasp the hand of the God
now, the hand of God who sponsored this nation, now, they will succeed in
fomenting enough fear, in enough Americans, that the political consensus there is
now, to stay the course, will surely dissipate. And we will withdraw. No doubt
behind the banner of an illusory honor. But what honor is their in cowardice?
What honor is their in spinelessness? There is none. Our enemies know it. And
therefore our withdrawal will signal the end of America as a world super power,
because, it will telegraph a weakness beyond their wildest dreams, drawing
terrorists attacks upon the American homeland like a piece of red meat attracts ants.
How has it come to this?
All of the woes of America can be traced
to one fundamental mistake. The mistake we made is over 40 years old now, and it
dates from the day we turned our back upon God our Father in October 1962,
when the people allowed the Federal Courts to take the first step in removing
prayer from the public schools, and when, in the aftermath of that infamous
decision, the people could not summon the collective will to overturn it. It has
been all downhill from there.
When prayer was taken out of the
schools, the good injected into American society by billions of industrious Angels
each day, ceased. It was like telling the garbage collectors of New York City not to
come to work. The garbage has been stacking up on the streets day in, and day
out, ever since. We have become accustomed to walking around in it. The smell
does not offend anyone anymore.
And the garbage itself has given life to a
new order of stinky creatures, like unto the Michael Moores of this world.
Now, I will tell you, that there are many
signs that we are close to hitting bottom. The people are so confused now, as to
whom they owe their allegiance and their very lives, that they cannot find the will
to stop the slaughter of millions of Americans in the womb each year. They cannot
find the will to stop the deluge of pornography, and the saturation of our culture
with ever more degrading and base examples of depravity. They cannot find the
will to stop even the latest outrage against the laws of God, the marriage, if you can
believe it, of homosexuals. Every new low, requires God our Father to step further
away from us as a culture. What does he say? He says, I know them not. And
this allows the downward slide of the whole society to accelerate.
No, we have not hit bottom yet. The
bottom is yet to come. When the culture disintegrates, then you will know you
have hit bottom. When all of the institutions people have worked lo these last 200
years to build, are brought down, then you can be sure you have hit bottom. When
there is nothing left to hold these institutions together, then you know you have hit
bottom. When there is no divine hand to stay the forces of chaos that we are
unleashing in our very midst, then you know you have hit bottom. But by the time
you are sure that you have hit bottom, it will be too late to turn it around.
School prayer was a beloved institution.
It was dissolved under the acidic insensitivity of secularism. The womb of the
mother was a beloved institution. It was dissolved under the acidic insensitivity
of secularism. The innocence of childhood was a beloved institution. It was
dissolved under the acidic insensitivity of secularism. The privacy and sacredness
of sex within the boundaries of marriage, this was a beloved institution. It was
dissolved under the acidic insensitivity of secularism. The very relationship
between a man and woman was a beloved institution. It was dissolved under the
acidic insensitivity of secularism. And now marriage, the foundation of family life
since the very appearance of man on this planet, was a beloved institution. It too is
very close to being completely dissolved under the acidic insensitivity of
Where is the Divine Hand that would hold
any of these institutions together? It has been withdrawn. When the divine hand is
withdrawn, and the most sacred institutions are disintegrating, you know that you
are very close to hitting the very bottom. It will not be long before the very
institutions that maintain even a semblance of peace, order, and civilization in our
lives, will begin to bend and collapse. And in this respect, it is no coincidence that
we see the rise of terrorism at this point, with the prospect of nuclear detonations in
major cities that have the ability to trigger economic convulsions that will bring
exactly the level of chaos which our institutions will no longer be able to check.
Look at the economic downturn produced when the terrorists took down just two
New York high rise towers. What would happen if nuclear device was detonated
in the main New York Financial district? The prospect of this is right now on the
And so, we are very close to the bottom
Yet, in light of all of this, we are provided
with an opportunity of inestimable value, right here, and right now, to turn this all
around. To stop this slide, and to reverse it.
How do we do it?
President George W. Bush must take the
lead on this as Commander in Chief. He must explain to the American people the
dire situation we are in, a situation that we will not be able to prevail in, if we do
not summon the help of God as a nation. This of course has nothing to do with
restoring school prayer. This has everything to do with enlisting the people in a
great call to the very Throne of Heaven for divine assistance for a very practical
and immediate purpose. We need Divine Assistance to help our soldiers succeed in
the great task of bringing liberty to the Iraqi people. We know that President Bush
is committed to giving our troops everything they need to succeed. But one thing
the Defense Department can't give them, is the Divine Assistance that only the
American people can invoke for them.
We must prevail in Iraq. The survival of
our nation depends on it. But we face great obstacles. These obstacles are too
great for us to overcome alone. I know this to be true. We must seek the help of
God our Father, who sponsored this nation from the beginning, to help us prevail
in this noble cause. This is a very serious situation that will require all of us to
sacrifice. And this includes sacrificing those loud but petty objections to the idea of
school children praying once again, so that our soldiers will have a fighting chance
to succeed. And therefore, I am asking every citizen of this great nation to
shoulder a new responsibility in these troubled times, and that is to make the effort,
in every possible free moment, to ask our Common Heavenly Father, to help our
soldiers succeed in their mission of bringing liberty to the Iraqi people. That's all.
There is only One Heavenly Father. And he will listen to these righteous pleas
made by citizens of every faith. We are all in this together. We are all share this
common time of peril. We all share the hope of success for the victorious outcome
of the mission to which we have set the fighting men and women of this nation.
Please, make it a point to ask God our Father to help our troops. The demons of
darkness that inhabit the hearts of the terrorists will shudder at this moment, and
that is a good thing. Their day is done. God our Father will see to that, if only we
ask him to help us. That's all.
Our president needs to speak of this at
every opportunity. Could John Kerry ever bring himself to do that? Absolutely
not. A heart of darkness does not look to God for anything. Only the heart of
President George W. Bush has the appropriate posture. It needs to become a part
of the national life of this nation. And of course this will make international news,
because the forces of darkness will be absolutely livid at the audacity of this
president. And this serves another important purpose. This will help reassure the
Muslim peoples of this world, who are not quite sure where America stands when
it comes to our allegiance to God. As this becomes a fixture of our national life,
they will be comforted, feeling a new kinship with Americans, and this will bring
us more allies throughout the Muslim populations.
And as the American people respond, and
follow the lead of the president in this regard, a certain additional space will be
opened in the American mind for a more serious consideration of the Presidents
recommendation that we pass a Constitutional Amendment to outlaw marriage
between homosexuals. As the president gets more positive feedback on this issue
from the citizens of America, he will be able to take a more and more bold stand in
this area, and this will have again, a positive impact on the public opinion of the
Muslim populations of the world. The issue of homosexual marriage gives
America a black eye in the minds of the Muslim populations of the world. To see
that the American people are devoted to the law of God in this respect, and have
found the will to stand against this offense against heaven, will boost our public
image in all Muslim lands. All of this will help us get the cooperation we need to
defeat the terrorists wherever they are.
You see, that battle against terrorism will
become more easily winnable, because we will have brought to the equation two
additional factors that are absent now. First is the help of God himself. Second is
the increased help of the Muslim people because of America's stand for what is
right in the sight of God.
And it will come to pass, that with the
help of God, the situation will eventually stabilize in Iraq, and the Iraqi people will
have the freedom they deserve, and the people will marvel at the efficacy of the
approach taken by President George W. Bush. He will have helped the people to
realize, that they do have a friend in God their common Father. And because of
this, finally, and historically, perhaps sometime into his second term, President
Bush, having succeeded in shepherding through a constitutional amendment to
outlaw homosexual marriage, will have created an atmosphere in which the people
will consider a constitutional Amendment to overturn all the federal court decisions
that have taken prayer out of the public schools of America. And this amendment
will pass. And the children will again be able to start their school days with a
collective prayer, and because of this, the trash collections will begin again. The
stink of all that refuse which has built up over four decades will be cleared away
because of the billions of Angels who will leap into action as a result of the prayers
of the school children. And the minds f the people will become more clear as a
result, and understanding will return to their hearts, and they will finally feel
ashamed that they have allowed millions of Americans to be slaughtered in the
womb, and the movement will finally go forth then, and perhaps this will be long
after President George W. Bush has left office, to propose and to pass an
amendment to the Constitution that will guarantee the right to life of the unborn
With this act of the American people
made official, and all abortion clinics finally shut down, God our Father, in his
infinite gratitude will release the bowers of heavenly treasures upon the American
people, and lo, the first Golden Age in recorded history will coalesce right here in
America, and America will lead all nations in the science of divine gratitude, and it
will come to pass, that the earth will shine so brightly, that the central sun of our
solar system will bow down in awe before what God and his people have
accomplished here on earth.
In the current conflict, we need to find a
path guaranteed to lead us through this thicket of ever increasing complexity, to
victory. God our Father will create that path for us. And so, I would encourage
our President to adopt a New National Strategy for Victory. And it is simply this.
This New National Strategy would recognize our Need for God's Help, and would
implement a Systematic Program to Seek that Help. And when we do that, the path
to victory will unfold before us day by day, to consternation of all of our enemies.
And so, President Bush, please take the
lead in encouraging the American people to pray for the safety of our troops in
Iraq, and for the success of their mission. Mr. Bush, please encourage the
American people to do this. We see engraved on our coins, the words, In God we
Trust. That's our national motto. What is it about God that we trust? We trust in
his promises. He said, "Ask, and ye shall receive." We need his help now more
than ever. But we need to ask for it. He doesn't give it, unless we ask for it.
Please lead the nation in asking for God's help in protecting our troops, and for his
help in fulfilling their noble mission. Please add this sober request to every public
speech and statement that you give. Every time the T.V. cameras are rolling, please
take the opportunity to encourage the American people to do this. They will
respond. But they need a leader. Leadership in this area is all important.

John Lennon, Satan Sympathizer

Linda Worobec, Lennon Sympathizer
Two things equal to the same thing, are always equal
to each other. This is the law. But this is the law that is being denied by Church Manager Rev.
Linda Worobec, and this church leadership, and hidden from the eyes of the membership.
Many people still wonder what was wrong with
Church Manager Rev. Linda Worobec belting out a Beatles tune, authored by the infamous
John Lennon, on the very Altar of the Holy Grail in King Arthur's Court. (See Program). These
two images tell the story. The first image is of Anton Lavey, the author of the Satanic Bible.
This image is taken from the back of the Satanic Bible. Look at his left hand. That is the hand
sign that signifies the worship of Satan. They call it the "Il Cornuto". Look at the right hand
of John Lennon in this detail taken from the back of the Yellow Submarine Album. That is the
same hand sign. See more examples of the use of the "Il Cornuto"
Through what avenue did the false hierarchy move to
destroy the unity of the Russian Congregation? They moved right through the electronic belt of
Linda Worobec, and there was nothing to stop them, because this wide avenue of sympathy
with a devil worshiper, John Lennon, is stubbornly defended by her freewill.
It jars every fiber of common sense in me, as I try to
understand how students of the ascended masters would complacently sit back and allow a
person to serve in the office of Church Manager who has clearly demonstrated Satanic

I found the following statement in the
August/September 2000 issue of Heart to Heart, page 4:
Here, a past church president, Neroli Duffy, is taking a
stand against some form of unacceptable music. In this case, it is performed by an outside
service provider, Heart Math. But three years later, she is part of the chorus of praise for
Church Manager Rev. Linda Worobec when she performs a Beatles song, and Rag Time music,
and Gershwin Jazz, (see
program), on the Altar of the Holy Grail, in King Arthur's Court, on the Fourth of July,
2003, during the single most important conference of the year.
While I said in our last issue of Heart to Heart that HeartMath is in congruence with
everything we're doing, I want to clarify that the church does not endorse all aspects of the
HeartMath training, for instance, their choice of music. In fact, we requested that they not play
it during the training of our staff and former staff. They graciously complied. I apologize for
not making this clearer in my original remarks.
Love and blessings,
Neroli Duffy, president,
The Summit Lighthouse and
Church Universal and Triumphant
[Heart to Heart, Aug/Sep 2000, p.4]
Given the darkness the leadership has fallen into, I am
wondering whether those Heart Math seminars were helpful, or hurtful. Are Neroli Duffy's
words true, when she says that "HeartMath is in congruence with everything we're doing"?
Who can give me some first hand testimony regarding the content of the HeartMath program?

Membership Must Boycott the Blueprint Process.
Sunday, October 17, 2004, 4:26 PM PDT||
What good are more words written onto paper,
by rebels no less, when they refuse to bend the knee before the words that have
already been spoken and written by the Masters themselves? This process can only
serve to further demoralize the membership as they are confronted with instance
upon instance of the most blatant and stomach turning hypocricy, as principles are
set forth for consideration that the leadership has already trampled into the ground.
This amounts to the giving of initiations by of the false hiearchy to the children of
God, as students confront that hypocricy, and they learn to swallow it, without
even a burp.
We must boycott this Blueprint process
until the time comes, when Leadership has developed the spine necessary to come
to terms with the elements of the Divine Plan, and Divine Purpose that they have
Make no mistake about it. When that new
leadership arrives, they will throw all of this stuff out anyway. Can a thorn tree
produce figs? It is impossible. The new leadership will not be bound by the self-
serving posturing of these rebels who weave the appearance of figs around their
path destroying, and soul destroying thorns of rebellion. Take a bite, and what do
you get, but a sticker in your tongue?
The entire organization should be focused
on one point. And this one point ought to represent the central blueprint of all of
our efforts for the forseeable future. All of the meaningless posturing of the
current leadership must be swept off the table, the surface wiped down, and
polished, and this one vase of beautiful roses, which I will describe, set thereupon.
Having done this, everything else will fall into place.
We must all focus on establishing an
atmosphere throughout this organization, that will allow a new leader, or leaders to
come forward whose hearts will shine with an intensity equal to, and even greater
than that which Elizabeth Clare Prophet exhibited at the height of her
Messengership. And as I have noted before, that particular leader, or leaders will be
able to give evidence of the purity and intensity of the Light that shines through
their chakras, by the capacity to walk upon the surface of the water of Lake WOW
at the heart of the Inner Retreat.
What is that atmosphere? Well, what
atmosphere did the Master El Morya maintain around the Messenger during her
training? It was an atmosphere of discipline, and non-compromise with human
foolishness. The Messenger's heart expanded in radiance, only because she passed
more tests than she failed. Mark Prophet wouldn't let her get away with anything.
Her heart expanded in radiance, because she was quick to surrender her dweller
whenever she became aware of the need. This is the only atmosphere wherein true
Light can expand. It is a difficult path in many respects. But there is only one way
up the mountain.
I admit, that the importance of having a
good leader, was not clearly evident to me in years past. I errred somewhat in
putting too much credence in the role of the rank and file membership. This error
has come into focus for me, as I observe the great destruction that bad leaders can
unleash upon a whole organization. It is clear, that we need a central electrode of
unity. Though it needs to be pure.
I believe that there is actually a kind of
circulatory system operating that passes the light of the collective consciousness of
the members through the central heart of the leadership, and back out to the
membership. And if the central leadership is corrupted, the minds of the entire
membership take on that corruption.
Of course, if there happens to be someone
with a significant amount of Light out in the membership, and that Light, when it
passes through the heart of the corrupted leadership, refuses to become darkness,
what will happen, but they will be mightily offended at that Light? And they will
cast that one away.
You see, no one who has any Light at all,
will stand by in silence at the sight of corruption. If the person had Light, to stand
by in silence, will cause the Light to be turned to darkness. And there are many
people in this organization who feel a great loss in this respect. They wonder
where the glory has gone. Well, it disappeared as they allowed their own spines to
crumble in the face of this corruption.
Now, how can true and genuine leaders
rise up, who actually have Light, if that Light is always an offense to the current
corrupted leadership? Those who actually have Light will never be complicit in
this corruption, but will challenge it, and the challenge will evoke offense, and the
one who has the Light will be ostrasized by executive decree. How do we get
around this dilemma?
The only point that is relevant, when it
comes to developing a blueprint for the victory of this organization, is to focus on
solutions that address this particular and immediate dilemma. Of course, the
current blueprint process has nothing to say in this regard, and that represents a
decisive indictment all by itself. The current blueprint has about as much potential
to produce victory as a car with no engine has to produce speed.
Somehow, some form of democratic
participation by the rank and file membership in the selection of leaders must be
implemented. Not that an electoral decision of the rank and file membership is
guartenteed to reflect pure wisdom every time. Even if they are foolish half of the
time, there is a possibility that they might get it right the other half of the time. This
is better than what we have now, where we have non-stop corruption, with a
system designed to perpetuate that corruption, with no mechanism by which
change can be implemented.
Of course, there is a great challenge
before us, when it comes to working out the mechanisms by which the
membership's voice will be heard. This will require much creative insight.
But, it is not my purpose here to go into
any detail in this regard. My purpose is to encourage an immediate boycott of the
current blueprint process which is being forced down the throats of the
membership by the current corrupt leadership. Don't pour any of your light down
that rat hole. We must invest our energy in productive and useful direction. I
encourage the membership to focus on the most important and immediate priority,
and that is to fashion, as quickly as possible a blueprint for the orderly change of
leadership through an electoral process that will allow for the participation of the
rank and file membership.
I believe that if the membership had a
choice between a leader who promises to maintain the status quo, and a leader who
would go back and put right what was destroyed in King Arthur's Court in July of
2003, and what was destroyed in Russia at the end of August 2003, that the
majority of the membership would vote for justice in this regard.
I believe the issue area raised above,
concerning the depiction of naked children on the website of what purports to be
the "Darjeeling Report", is a case in point. I was amazed at receiving emails that
made me out to be the villain. I was amazed to find out that to step out in defense
of the innocence and the bodily privacy of little children was now considered to be
a characater defect in me. But of course, the Masters did not allow me to spend
much time in wondering about my own foolishness in this regard. It was pointed
out to me, that in all of my years on this planet, I had never seen the bodies of
children consciouslly posed in an unclothed condition for any purpose. Not just
within the culture of this organization, but within the culture of America at large. I
did a search on the internet to see if I could find similar images, where people
would go to the trouble of asking little childern to take their clothes off, so they
could be photographed in support of a particular idea. I could not find one. Not
one. It appears to me, that Monique Gulick has broken some astonishingly new
ground, and the way it was done, is of course mindboggling, in terms of wrapping
the naked children in a particular teaching that the mind would not want to reject.
Now, the fact that I could not find any
other images like this, means that the culture at large still adheres to the common
sense of the matter, that little children are not to be used in this manner. But
Monique Gulick has broken through that barrier. And the result is, that the
members of this organization are now inclined to believe that this is acceptable, and
they are tempted to consider me a pervert for opposing this. Such is the chaotic
tumbling that occurs within the region of logic, as the soul falls, and yes tumbles
down the mountain of human relativism.
And how could this most basic of barriers
have been broken through by a member of this community? It is because the
darkness of rebellion in which the leadership resides, is being pumped into the
collective consciousness of the members, and their minds go dark, and they no
longer see the lines of demarcation that divide the acceptable from the unacceptible.
And it also goes to illustrate another important principle. If the Light that be in
thee, is darkness, how great is that darkness.
And so, the great light that the Masters
have given to the students, have been turned to a level of darkness that is even
greater than that which is extent in the popular culture. But of course, it is the
more insidious, because the darkness wears the mask of ascended master
righteousness. The astral substance that is projected out of the chakras of these
individuals has the form and structure of the teaching, at least an implied assocation
with the teaching. And the implication is powerful enough to persuade people to
buy into it. And even to come to the defense of it.

Voice of the Loyal Opposition
Sunday, October 17, 2004, 12:17 PM PDT||
The reader will notice that we have recently retooled
the Homeward Bound Journal header graphic, making it more bold, to more accurately reflect
the stand we are taking. And you will notice that we have added a new motto, "The Voice of
the Loyal Opposition". I am thinking that perhaps some might wonder what the Journal is
loyal to, and what the Journal is opposed to.
The Journal is loyal to God our Father and Mother
first, and to the Ascended Masters who truly bring us a renewed knowledge of their Reality and
our place within that Reality. We are loyal to the Teaching, and to the Law proclaimed
therein, as that loyalty, and that obedience, is the only pathway to this higher knowledge. We
are loyal to the Teaching, because it is the narrow way, the gate, the door, the very eye of the
needle, that allows the soul to pass from the region of material bondage, into the domain of
spiritual freedom. The Teaching, this narrow way, this gate, this door, it is sacred. And we
understand our duty to lead others to it, and not away from it.
And so, we are opposed to those who lead the people
away from this narrow way, this gate, this door. We are opposed to their efforts to wreck the
plans and purposes of God, wherever those people might be, wherever they have chosen to
establish their base of operation. And when such individuals find their way into the leadership
of this precious organization, and they make the halls of power within the very headquarters of
the Summit Lighthouse, their base of operation, we oppose them there as well.
No, we will not bend down and kiss their feet. We will
wash their feet, if they will extend them into the wash basin, but we will not kiss their feet,
especially while their heavy, highly polished, steel toed boots are still on, and fully laced up.
We are loyal to the hopes and dreams of the Ascended
Masters. We are loyal to the parameters of the Path of Initiation which they sponsor, which
will lead the soul to a state of true freedom. On the other hand, we are thoroughly opposed to
those who would destroy those hopes and dreams, and distort and corrupt the Path of Initiation
of itself. Yes, we are opposed to those who, in their blind pursuit of self-interest, redefine that
path, and lead the children of God, thereby, into the abyss of failure yet again.
The current leadership is engaged in a process of
redefining the path, and so we oppose them. They are redefining the path, so that it will now
accommodate their rebellion, so that it will now accommodate their desire to cling to their high
offices of power. And so, in the short term, they keep their rebellion, and they keep their
offices, but in the process, the corrupted teaching bears the poisonous fruit of failure for the
entire membership. We oppose this.
As we are loyal to the Teaching, we are opposed to the
corruption of it. As we are loyal to the organizational vessel, we are opposed to the corruption
of that as well. God our Father is not mocked.
These self-proclaimed, self-appointed heirs to the
power and authority of God on earth, usurpers each one, dazed to a state of drunkenness by the
fumes rising from the fully stocked armory of institutional power, will be removed from office,
one way or another. And when they are gone, true leaders will be standing by to take their
place, and the journey to the Central Sun can then get back on track, and continue not just for
this organization, but for the whole planet.

Vision, the People Perish
Saturday, October 16, 2004, 11:28AM PDT||
John Kerry would have allowed Saddam Hussein to
stay in power. John Kerry would have allowed sanctions against Saddam Hussein to be lifted.
John Kerry would have allowed things to return to "normal" within Iraq. Behind the smoke
screen of normalcy, John Kerry wold have allowed Saddam Hussein the opportunity to
reconstitute his nuclear weapons development program. Behind the smoke screen of normalcy,
John Kerry would have given Saddam Hussein the opportunity to pass a nuclear weapon into
the hands of the terrorists.
Connect the dots. Penetrate the smoke screen.
That weapon would have detonated in New York City,
killing tens of thousands, perhaps more. America's economy would have been crippled under
that blow, millions would have been thrown out of work. A widespread depression would
have engulfed the nation. Yes, those who believed he was better for the economy will
certainly understand the depth of the mistake they made.
Without vision, the people perish.
John Kerry doesn't have VISION. This is
Vision with a capital "V" that spells Victory for God's perfect plan for his people, which begins
Why do the words Vietnam, Vision, Victory, and
Virtue, all begin with a capital "V"? Think about that. And then glance over your shoulder,
and see John Kerry standing tall, as some kind of hero upon the historical record, showing us
what Defeat, Delusion, Disaster and Dishonor, really means. All four begin with a capital "D"
for Death. That's what he gave the true freedom fighters in South Vietnam as they were crushed
by the forces of Communism.
Sure, the most liberal Senator from the state of
Massachusettes has a vision of his own personal power, what politician doesn't? And his mind
will adopt whatever beliefs are necessary to pave the way to the throne. News flash: The
greatest supporter of abortion rights the planet has ever known, tries to pass himself off as Pro-
Life. That's a good example, as any, in all five Dimensions. But to the true needs of the
people, to the true needs of America, he is blind. He has no vision. His blindness would have
paved the way for the advent of an era of great devastation.
President George W. Bush has vision. He has already
used his vision to protect America from this disastrous scenario. Be wise, vote to keep
President George W. Bush in office for another 4 years.

Destiny of the
Saturday, October 16, 2004, 11:25AM PDT||
What is behind this hatred that so many direct at
President George W. Bush? I will tell you. Those who truly hate, to the very core of their bones,
President George W. Bush are those who have served in totalitarian regimes over millions of
years. These are the children of God that the fallen angels have coopted time and time again to
fill the bureaucracies of their dictatorial regimes. They have been the instruments of oppression
in all past ages. To them government is God, the provider of every good and perfect thing,
omniscient, omnipresent, omnipotent, and therefore appropriately totalitarian, and they have
always been the instruments of its "divine" dictates and when necessary, retribution often times
very cruel. And in their heart of hearts, they long for the day when America's democracy will
fall, chaos will resume, the fallen angels take over, and they will get to return to their offices in
the bureaucracies of oppression. That is the only place they actually feel safe. With the
corruption of American society, and the rise of world-wide terrorism, they taste in the air, the
oncoming chaos, and it tastes sweet to them. And when President George W. Bush stands up,
and turns back the winds of chaos and destruction, at least for a time, they hate him with a
passion. And their hatred overcomes the minds of many, minds who have not anchored any
sense of identity in truth, who are easily swept along in these great mud slides of contempt and
Thus, it is important to make the distinction between
those who are so weak in their hearts and minds and souls, that they are so easily swept up in
this muddy conflagration of hate, and those from whose very hearts flow that muddy torrent.
For some, it can be said, forgive them, for they know not what they do. For others, they know
exactly what they are doing.
This election is one more event in this ongoing drama,
this struggle between the forces of Light, and the forces of Darkness, for control over the
destiny of the people, a struggle which stretches back into the dimmest regions of memory,
even unto the beginning of time.

Condemnation, and Judgment
Saturday, October 16, 2004, 8:44AM PDT||
A reader has responded, in part, to the content of the
September 2004 Front Page, as follows:
"I still maintain that you are WALKING ON VERY THIN ICE in regard to
Cosmic Law, the will of God, and desire of the Masters for your lifestream, because of your
strong CCJ posture, attitudes, and actions. Surely, your condemnations will one day return to
your doorstep to HAUNT you, not to mention the KARMA for such CCJ which could possibly
cost you your ascension."
This, coming from a person who worships at the feet
of the false hiearchy imposters channeled by Monroe and Carolyn Shearer (TOP) is quite
interesting, don't you think? Here is a person who is completely unaware that he is drinking
from a fount of poisoned water, but still believes he can tell whether or not I am serving the
Masters appropriately. In other words, he has turned his back on the real masters, fully
embraced a gaggle of false hierachy imposters, and yet he can still sincerely comment on what
might be the desire of the Masters for me. Let us all pay very close attention to how beguiling
is the condition of delusion on the 9 o'clock line. And let us renew our conviction, that the
beginning of freedom from delusion, is in our close embrace of the Teaching, being mindful,
that our actions, and our thoughts, must square with the Law set forth therein.
And excuse me, if I insert a familiar refrain at this
point, and say, this is where Church Manager Rev. Linda Worobec fell. Actions that were
totally opposed to the Teaching, she would not admit to, retract, or apologize for. In this
rebellion, all members of the leadership supported her. They would not stand fast and require
accountability to the law set forth by the Masters. They have made up their own law, those
rules, I suppose, that define how to ensure that when the face of the (lofty) rebel turns in your
direction, there will be a smile painted on that face, so you can bask in the sunshine of that
smile, and spend you day feeling good about who you are. I mean you still have your job right?
Now, in referring to CCJ, the reader is referring to
criticism, condemnation, and judgment. I believe I have a solid understanding of what that is. I
know it is forbidden. On the other hand, I am also cognizant of the Master's admonishment to
speak the truth, and to challenge falsehoods at every opportunity, and especially to demand
accountability on behalf of the leadership. I believe I have a fairly solid sense of where the line
is that divides one area of activity from the other.
At times it may appear that I am nudging right up to
that line, and from some people's perspective, that I have crossed that line. But I am not aware
of where I have crossed the line. In as much as this is a question of precision, those who
challenge me must be precise.
But unfortunately very few have a solid sense of where
the dividing line is. So their challenges are usually too broad and general to be of any use to
And because the challenges are broad and general, this
tells me they don't have a solid sense themselves of where the dividing line is, so their
observations are probably wrong. To me, any enlightened challenge on the issue of criticism,
condemnation, and judgment, will always start with a presentation of the challenge that we face
when deciding what is, and what is not criticism, condemnation, and judgment. For example,
please make note of how I introduced this topic, and I quote:
"On the issue of criticism, condemnation, and
judgment, I believe I have a solid understanding of what that is. I know it is forbidden. On the
other hand, I am also cognizant of the Master's admonishment to speak the truth, and to
challenge falsehoods at every opportunity, and especially to demand accountability on behalf of
the leadership. I believe I have a fairly solid sense of where the line is that divides one area of
activity from the other."
Excuse me for quoting myself. But here is an example
of the whole circle, as it were. There is a dividing line right down the middle. On one side of
the line, you can lawfully challenge all wrong doing, and all expression of error and falsehood.
On the other side of the line, you must not tread.
If a person comes to me and accuses me of criticism,
condemnation, and judgment, and they don't present a sense of this basic dilemma, what this
indicates to me, is they have not thought through the issue, and they are not aware that a
dividing line exists, let alone of where it might be. This is usually the case when they operate
out of a condition of pre-judgment, which is really a state of emotional reaction, wherein they
have a sense that everything that I say is wrong, and that is the only point they are trying to get
across. And what they are doing is using the charge of CCJ as a club to beat me around the top
of my head. And so it is clear, they will not allow this whole equation to even enter into their
minds, they will not allow their own minds to even entertain the possibility that in some places
I am speaking the truth, and in other areas I am crossing the line into CCJ. They are not
interested in differentiating where I am right, and where I am wrong. They are only interested
in telling me how wrong I am. And that my dear friends, is actually the mindset of criticism,
condemnation, and judgment.
So, to summarize this point. There is only one way to
lawfully challenge someone on the point of criticism, condemnation and judgment. Only
one way. The person must begin by expressing knowledge of the whole equation, the whole
circle. Here, let me create a little graphic to illustrate this point. Please stand by. One half of
the circle represents the lawful challenge of falsehood, lawful challenges of error, and lawful
challenges of lapses in judgment especially on the part of the leadership for the purpose of
holding them accountable. This half of the circle is labeled "GOOD", and is predicated on
divine law, and the Master's expression of that Law to their students. The other half of the
circle, represents criticism, condemnation, and judgment, which is really the area of character
put-downs, character assassination, having in mind only the purpose of destroying the character
of the opponent. This half of the circle is labeled "BAD". Into this region we must not tread.
The Master's have made this clear as well. The challenger must put this whole equation on the
table at the onset, and then proceed to frame the challenge within the context of helping the
person, who they see as a violator of the law, to identify where they have crossed the line.
Precision is the absolute requirement in whatever explanatory statements that follow. Absent
this, the challenger is operating out of a mindset of criticism, condemnation, and judgment
themselves 99% of the time, in as much as their minds or too dark to SEE the whole equation,
and to locate the dividing line.
And this is an important principle. When the mind is
so dark, wherein it cannot see that the circle contains two-halves, one half good, the other half
bad, and cannot see the dividing line that separates them, then this signals a condition of crown
chakra pollution, which was produced by the practice of criticism, condemnation, and judgment
itself. These unconscious habit patterns of criticism, condemnation, and judgment, are
composed primarily of ingrained patterns of thought, associated with the 3 o'clock dweller,
which is continuously trying to posture itself above other people.
Now, this is the fact of the matter.
In 99.9% of the cases where various people have
accused me of practicing criticism, condemnation, and judgment, they have universally failed
to meet these basic requirements. Now, if they really try, they may be able to meet those
requirements, I don't know. But, they probably have not been challenged to do so before. But
this is the essence of the teaching. You see, if they desire to wield the teaching on CCJ on
behalf of the Masters, they must be careful not to wield it against a student who is actually
fulfilling the Masters admonishment to challenge error and falsehood, and to hold leaders
accountable. In this regard, they would be using a misconception to defeat the cause of truth
itself. So, if they desire to be helpful, I would hope they would all go back, and approach each
one of their objections using the whole equation. It would be a good exercise, both for them and
for me. I am open and willing to hear what they have to say, more so, when they make the
effort to be precise, showing that they appreciate the need to be balanced, serving BOTH
interests that the Masters have set before us.

the Tent of
America's Divine Mission
Thursday, October 14, 2004, 11:41PM PDT||
I wanted to put the issue of school prayer into context.
The Teachings of the Ascended Masters represents the central pole of the main tent of
America's Divine Mission. But as the center of the tent is raised up, the outer perimeter must be
raised up in a corresponding manner. In fact, if the outer periphery is not raised, that introduces
a factor of limitation, when it comes to raising the central part of the tent any higher. In other
words, if the center pole is 100 feet high, you cannot raise the center of the canvas to the full
height, until the outer periphery of the canvas is raised to its design height. Perhaps the design
height of the outer walls of the tent is only 12 or 15 feet. But you can see, if the outer walls of
the canvas remains staked to the ground by false and erroneous interpretations of the U.S.
Constitution, banning school prayer on the one hand, and legalizing abortion on the other, the
center of the tent cannot be raised to its full height. It is all one canvas, and each part must be
raised to its design height, if the whole tent is to be fully erected, and therefor fully able to hold
all of the hopes and dreams of God.
Every student of the Acended Masters must be
mindful that their duty encompasses the raising of the whole tent, not just the canvas that is
raised along the central pole.

Terrorism a Nuisance?
John Kerry Just Doesn't Get it.
Thursday, October 14, 2004, 11:16PM PDT||
Presidential candidate John Kerry, in a New York
Times article on Sunday, was quoted as saying, ''We have to get back to the place we were,
where terrorists are not the focus of our lives, but they're a nuisance."
And of course the Bush campaign jumped on that with
all fours. And for good reason. This is proof positive that John Kerry just doesn't get it. At
heart, Kerry's priorities are way off in another direction. For example, he wants do everything
in his power to make sure, that if the women of America want to keep killing their children
inside of the womb, that they will continue to have that "right". But this is a presidential
campaign. And if he's to be elected, he needs to give voters the impression that his heart is in
the right place when it comes to their national defense. And so, when the time is right, he will
go to elaborate efforts to take that heart out, unravel the knots, turn it right side out, and place it
on the table in front of us so we can see it clearly, so we can all say, "yep, he's our man."
But when he puts it back into the socket, it takes on its
natural upside down distortions, and when he's off guard, for example when the interviewer is
sort of drooling on his boots, he will be proud and fearless and show it to you in its natural
shape. All upside down. All distorted, all blind. This statement shows us that upside down
heart, ''We have to get back to the place we were, where terrorists are not the focus of our lives,
but they're a nuisance."
But, what was 9/11 all about? Some people say that the
world changed on 9/11. And in a way, it did. A door of monumental disaster opened, and our
little room of national complacency was filled with horror, and that horror had the color of
gigantic explosions, huge fireballs, and falling buildings. And as that door opened, just a tiny
crack, that is the scene that filled the eyeballs of every American, that is the color of the light
that fell upon every wall, and the acrid smell that made every nose register the stink of ultimate
devastation, yes, that odor was now familiar to us all.
But that door was opened only a tiny crack. Just a tiny
crack. That was the smallest sliver of what the terrorists have in store for our nation.
And President George W. Bush, knowing exactly what
else was behind that door, sent U.S. Military Forces quickly to slam it shut, and keep pressure
against it, because, they know exactly what is behind it. They know. They can't imagine that
they would ever let off their pressure, allowing that door to open again. And that's why
terrorism will never ever be considered, by an American President, to be a "nuisance" again, if
it ever was.
The events of 9/11 gave us a quick glimpse of the
monumental hatred that lies beyond that door. In that one awful moment, we saw so clearly,
that the hatred of the terrorists was so monumental, that they were actually capable of
detonating a nuclear weapon in the United States, if they could only get their hands on one. It
showed us that they were actually capable of lusting after the death of tens of thousands of
Americans, and more. And all the experts tell us, being quite familiar with the statements made
public by Bin Laden, and others, that they place the highest priority on acquiring a nuclear
weapon, and one day they will succeed. That's what they tell us. It's not a matter of if, but only
when. Terrorism a nuisance? Never again.
This statement made by John Kerry, ''We have to get
back to the place we were, where terrorists are not the focus of our lives, but they're a
nuisance," tells us, that he doesn't see what is behind that door. And because he does not
genuinely see, nor understand what is behind that door, as Commander-in-Chief, he will
redeploy U.S. Forces to fit his sense of priorities, which is a false and distorted sense of
priorities. And that means he will move forces away from that door, allowing it to swing open,
and widely so, much sooner than it might otherwise.
In his heart of hearts, he would rather have U.S.
military forces surrounding abortion clinics, protecting them from the abortion protestors.
That's where the real threat is.
Now, there is a way to keep that door closed, and
hermetically sealed. And here, President George W. Bush is positioned to discover the way,
while John Kerry would have no hope of ever finding it.
The formula is simple. School prayer must be restored.
With the daily prayers of 70 million school children, a brand new day for America would dawn.
Legions of angels, which were benched in 1962, when school prayer was outlawed by a decision
of the U.S. Supreme Court, would be set free to respond to the prayers of the school children.
And this is what those angels would do. Those angels would bind the abortion beast hand and
foot, giving the American people an opportunity to think clearly again, and to see the
importance of writing a guarantee to life itself, within the U.S. Constitution. Legal abortion in
America would end. And as a result, when God our Father and Mother think upon America,
they would have a reason to have a genuine smile on their faces, rather than a scowl of such
deep sadness. Once this happens, rising upon the great updrafts of joy blazing out of the heart
of our heavenly parents, the prayers of the school children would then be allocated by the
angelic legions to bind the beast of terrorism hand and foot. That's what they would do. And
this would have the effect of closing that door of monumental destruction tight, sealing it
hermetically for all time, never to be opened again.
Fear would no longer be part of the life of American's
either in the womb, or in the streets. America would finally be back on track to a golden age,
our destiny as a beacon of freedom and responsibility to all nations.
President George W. Bush is capable of leading on
both of these issues. He supports both of these issues, the restoration of school prayer, and the
ending of legal abortion. There will come a time when conditions will be right for a move to be
made in this direction. If President Bush is at the helm at that moment, we have a chance. If
Kerry is there, we will have no chance.
John Kerry is an intractable foe, standing stubbornly
against the restoration of prayer in the public schools. And of course, he is one of the most
ardent supporters of abortion rights. In Senator John Kerry you have embodied the very reason
that the door of monumental destruction opened at all on 9/11. He is part of that movement,
that liberal tradition, that led the people of America to turn their backs upon God, and to
worship at the altar of human selfishness, most especially when it comes to abortion rights, and
even homosexual rights. No. John Kerry would do everything in his power to allow that door to
monumental destruction to open wide. Not that he would do that consciously. But he is a puppet
of the forces of darkness, and they push and press him to do their bidding, to do those things, to
take those positions, that are certain to bring destruction upon America, so that America can be
defeated, and her constitution torn to shreds under an epidemic of chaos, where they would
have the opportunity, finally, to wrest control of the nation from the hands of God's Children.
One Nation Under God? Bah! Never again. That is the decree that resounds in every heart of
Take out your swords, then, that are dedicated to the
school prayer issue. Now is the time to take them out of their scabbards, and to wield them
against the forces that oppose America's ultimate safety. America's ultimate safety is in prayer.
Truly, it is fitting that as we consider what we can do to turn back the scenario of ultimate
destruction posed by terrorists with nuclear weapons, that another door opens, this one to
safety, wherein we are compelled to return to the basics, that which constitutes America's
ultimate safety, which is God, which is prayer. Let school prayer be restored, and the sooner we
do it, the sooner that culture of death which now has a strangle hold on the throat of America,
can be loosened, and then removed completely.
The restoration of school prayer must come ere
America return to the path of her divine destiny. But there is only one question, as to when.
Will we restore school prayer before the first nuclear detonation on American soil, or after?
The choice is ours. For truly, who would doubt that after such an event, that there would not be
a single individual in Congress that would have the heart to vote against an ammendment to the
U.S. Constitution, that would allow the return of prayer to the public schools. Why wait for

And just in time for the run up to the November elections too. Gadzooks, how can

leadership of this organization when it comes to the current election cycle?
A recent email put out by the Spiritual Focus Committee offers this steadfast
prelude to our group decrees, observing, "No matter which party you support ... ".
Are you kidding me, or what? My jaw has dropped to the ground again,
making a crater ten feet deep, and ten feet wide. It is impossible for
anyone to be a member of the Democrat Party, and be a student of
the Masters. Impossible. There is only one hope for the advancement
of the Pro-Life cause, and that is the re-election of President George W. Bush.
There is only one hope for the return of prayer to the public schools, and
that is the re-election of President George W. Bush, and there is only one
hope for the victory of freedom in Iraq, and that is the re-election of President
George W. Bush. One tiny and humble oxygen molecule, in the vacuum of
outer space, can become part of a mighty breeze for the victory of freedom,
depending on what planet it hooks up with of course. So, come on home!
Come and see, and remember to book mark the page
