An ancient master said, “The mountains, the rivers, the whole earth, the entire array of phenomena are all oneself.”
If you can absorb the essence of this message, there are no activities outside of meditation: you dress in meditation and eat in meditation; you walk, stand, sit, and lie down in meditation; you perceive and cognize in meditation; you experience joy, anger, sadness, and happiness in meditation. - Muso (1275-1351)

Finding One’s Way in Life
As we walk together along the Buddhic Path - the path of eternal, sacred service to all life we constantly lift the chalice of our consciousness high and receive the gifts of wisdom, illumination and understanding. One of these gifts is the knowledge that to walk this path means to master the personal by transmuting it to the universal.
Many believe that once this path has been glimpsed and the first steps taken upon it; the way will be made easy. We are learning that this is not the case. The Buddhic Path is not an easy one, although the principles which comprise its course are clear and simple. While embodied, mastery of the personal energies can seem a daunting task but the first steps are always taken while we reside upon the physical plane.
There are so many tracks and trails which lead to this - the Path of Sacrifice! We have each traveled these side roads and still do from time to time, discovering that every track and trail touches the Buddhic Path at various points as we are offered a fresh opportunity to choose the highest road at every intersection.
Each individual must make his or her own way in this life. One may take the path of intellect; another, the road of feeling and intuition. Still another may choose the road of physical achievement. Most individuals will walk for a time upon each of these ways for the attainment of perfect balance is required in order to persevere upon the Path of Service.
The intellect alone is insufficient to direct us for intellect is but a tool. Certain understanding may be received through this tool but if we come to believe that understanding alone is the answer, we will have missed the mark! The emotional nature will also provide insufficient impetus to place and keep us upon the Buddhic Path, for feeling without understanding is incomplete. Similarly, physical stamina and creativity are but a small part of the total picture of perfect balance. The physical nature must be nourished by both the emotions and the intellect in order to perfectly outpicture the creativity of Divine Mind.
Often we can discern the primary path of many individuals whose lives touch ours. Those on the path of intellect will be dedicated to reason, principle and understanding. They are the “intellectuals” whose theories and blueprints may be difficult to understand for those of a more emotional nature.
Those on the path of emotion are more intuitive. By the very nature of the emotional body, they may often be somewhat capricious bending this way and that under the strong currents of their feelings. For those of a more intellectual nature, emotionally motivated people - seemingly guided only by their feeling nature - will also seem difficult to understand at times.
There are also the builders, those of the Elemental Kingdom who seek their completion upon the Earth. They may experience little satisfaction in life without a product to display. They only want to show off what they have brought forth - the results of their fertile imaginations and their creative abilities! The path of the physically-minded includes many artists and writers, as well as inventors and those who work in the various trades. The descriptions of these paths are intended to illustrate certain clear differences between the outer expressions of various lifestreams. Most of us are a mixture, at least to some degree, of the feeling person, the intellectual and the physically expressive individual. Even though we may prefer one type of expression over another we must open ourselves to the understanding and acceptance of all life, regardless of our differences.
Upon the Buddhic Path the merging and mastery of all subordinate paths takes place and it is necessary to travel each of these secondary roads for a time so the Buddhic Path will be recognized when it is reached. Take for example the relationship between beloved El Morya and Kuthumi. The emotional path was the most natural for Master Kuthumi as he felt his way through life - absorbing knowledge through intuition but he experienced difficulty in translating such knowledge into practical terms and use. It was primarily through his association with Master El Morya that he learned to understand and accept the principles behind his intuitive knowledge and responses. In other words, he had to step upon the path of his brother in order to fully understand and appreciate his own - the very road upon which he had traveled so long!
On the other hand, El Morya was able to learn from Kuthumi the gifts of silent contemplation and the way in which intuitive understanding can enrich knowledge gained through the intellect. Although Master Morya often refers lightly to their experiences together, there is no way they could have made their way into the complete freedom of the Higher Realms without each other’s examples. Rather then permitting difficult understandings of the same Truths to create a separation between them, they both worked hard to join forces, bringing new depths of perception and insights, each gaining much from the other in their efforts.
Let it be so for each of us! We must learn to accept ourselves for whom and what we are. We must look to our sisters and brothers to provide the examples of those qualities which we need to balance our energies and attain mastery! Accept the fact that any one of us - without the others - would experience a far more difficult time finding our way Home into the Heart of the Universal Presence of the Divine.

Visualize yourself walking upon a path of light. This path has led you over and through many explorations and ventures in the past which have been positioned before you, but now you see that you are approaching a great wall consisting of elemental substance.
As you look up, the wall seems to stretch to the sky, and not a toehold can be seen to help you in climbing over it. Looking to the left and to the right, it stretches into infinity in both directions, as well. Beginning to feel a sense of curiosity you wonder what is beyond this wall and how you will ever be able to pass.
Staying quiet for a few moments you ponder this mystery… then a still small voice is heard saying; "I AM here to assist your efforts so that you may pass effortlessly into the greater realm of your Higher Self!"
Contemplating these words, you arise, and again come to face the wall. You now notice that there is an enormous gate, fastened closed by massive iron chains. Summoning forth your inner divine light you focus the brilliant powerful light rays of violet fire onto the gate and instantly, the chains just melt away!
The gateway swings open, and you cross the threshold into the most striking countryside you have ever seen. The paths curve gently past fountains, babbling brooks, blossoming trees and flora which seem to be emanating all of the rainbow colors which blend into the stunning iridescent colors of mother-of-pearl.
You take a seat on a marble bench, resting your eyes and breathing deeply.
Within moments you begin to feel yourself saturated and filled with the many divine qualities which you especially need to strengthen you during your own personal journey upon life's path. For a time, you continue to inbreathe and absorb… expand and project these qualities.
Then you rise, and feeling totally revitalized, you continue upon the path until you see before you another brilliantly lighted path and you silently hear the following words: "I now consciously enter into and abide within the heart of the sacred fire, which is the true center of my being."
Walking forward, you step within the cleansing flames of love, wisdom, and power into the embrace of your own Divine Self. Centered within the sacred fire, you turn to look on the prospects surrounding you, and through the eyes of your Divine Self, you hear the following words flowing forth from your heart.
"Beloved one, you stand where all humanity has and will one day abide, for every person must find and become one with their own Divine Self. They will then experience the Kingdom of Heaven, and realize it already exists within the garden of their own heart. Entrance into this sanctuary is not always easy, but once you have learned the way through the gate you may always return, until the time comes when you will be able to remain in this consciousness forever. You have only to awaken and gaze through the eyes of your own Divine Self.”
Looking around you realize that you may now linger within this space indefinitely for it has no boundary, and it is embraced only with your courage and perseverance.
Filled with the radiation of this great light you realize that the truth has been revealed. For as you look about you find no end to the splendor and radiance of the vista that stretches out before you. You slowly begin to absorb this into your consciousness vowing to linger in this place of higher consciousness eternally.

Your Light is Our Light
Great Universal Presence of the Divine, I AM that I AM, as we kneel before Thee in gratitude and love may we speak only in your Name and by Your Authority which dwells deep within our hearts. Together, may we always serve as channels of Your Gifts to all our sisters and brothers in the ONE Human Family.
United in this request, we hold the sacred chalice of our consciousness high constantly invoking Your luminous Rays of Light to flow to and through us now, spreading across the face of this Earth enfolding all life. Fill us not only with Your Wisdom and Understanding but also with more Love than our hearts can hold, and may these blessings flow forth from us to honor and heal all life as we pass by.
Blessed one, guide us each and every day, awakening in us whatever is required to make us pure chalices of your perfected Gifts, so that Your Light is our Light—ONE in service to all life everywhere.
We know this is accomplished, even as we call.
So be it, beloved I AM that I AM!

I AM Divine Principle
Divine Principle cannot be described or expressed in a word or phrase for I AM the cause and core of all Divine Expression. I AM alive in the heart and mind of every human being, ascended master, angel, elemental and cosmic being. I AM the Flame of the Great Central Sun and of the Sun beyond the Sun, beyond the Sun.
You call for Divine Order and I AM there; yet, I AM there before the impulse to call even enters your consciousness, for Divine Order surrounds and enfolds every part of live at all times. Divine Order is the outer expression of the great inner principle. You call for Divine Truth and I AM there; for Divine Principle is the parent of all Truth and is the place of its birth. All Divine Truth expresses a portion of Divine Principle, yet no Truth can hold the entirety of Divine Principle within its grasp.
You invoke the Power of God and I AM there; indeed, Divine Principle provides not only the creative impulse behind your invocation but also the orderly path along which the Light flows forth, as well as the Light itself. When you call for Love beloved ones, I AM there; for, as Divine Principle is the Father, so Divine Love is the Mother. Divine Principle and Divine Love are inseparable parts of the Whole - the Mind and Heart of God.
I have told you that I emerged from the Great Silence in response to your calls. This is not the first time that I have come forth as individualized consciousness for the benefit of humanity. “I AM that I AM”, I said to Moses as he prepared to lead the Israelites out of captivity. “I AM the first and I AM the last” I decreed to Isaiah as he prophesied the redemption of humanity. “I AM” I declared to Gautama Buddha as he ascended in consciousness the Mount of Attainment, to enter the Great Silence wherein I abide.
The words “I AM” are not precisely my statement of being, nor are they my name. Rather, they are a command to the Flame of Life to rise and become one with my being and my name. The command I AM contains within itself the individualized vibration which invokes immediate creative response from all lesser vibrations. These words are a gift from the Mind of God, for they carry the vibration of Divine Principle into the consciousness of all who make the call.
When you can realize in the deepest recesses of your being, the reality of this great fiat—embodied in the words “I AM”—then you become that which you decree! The moment of this realization is a sacred one in the life of an awakening spirit. For an instant, time stops; scales fall from the eyes, as one’s inner vision becomes a reality. The clear tone of perfect harmony is heard as the lifestream cries out with pure joy, “I AM! I AM! I AM”!
Perhaps you have experienced this consummate joy. Often, it is the memory of this joy which keeps one on the path, at least for a time. But a memory may not provide sufficient impetus to sustain a lifestream upon the Path of Light, amid the clangs and clamors of the world of form. Sometimes even the strongest in spirit fall prey to the illusions which surround them. It is then that the command, “I AM” is needed most of all.
