Spiritualism has rendered an important and great service by PROVING that THERE IS LIFE AFTER SO-CALLED DEATH, especially in the West, where there was little knowledge, and acceptance of this after-life. However, the individuals usually contacted by the “medium” are from the psychic and astral realms, and these so-called “dead,” really have no more wisdom about how to live life than when they were on Earth. Disembodied souls reside in the psychic and astral realms, in which there are various strata, and depending on the souls level of consciousness they abide. This is not the realm of the Ascended Masters.
It is the plan now for all these souls to be taken permanently to Temples of Light, of which there are now 1000’s, in the Higher Realms, to learn the Laws of Life, and Self-Mastery through their OWN God Presence – The “I AM” Presence. This is being facilitated by the Ascended Masters who have achieved complete Mastery of energy and vibration, through their own study and application of the Laws of Life – and They are therefore are at ONE with their own Great God Presence, “I AM.”
This activity brought to us by the Ascended Masters, is endeavoring to empower each individual to ‘go-within’ and receive their guidance from their OWN God Presence, the Christ-self anchored in their hearts. As this is truly the only way of ‘safe passage’ and true Mastery!
Being reliant on others for anything in life, immediately puts one in a state of vulnerability, and can be a distraction to the student, that at some stage on the path to Mastery and Eternal Freedom must be overcome by the student.
Also, it is very harmful to call people back after they have passed on, because this delays their progress. The TRUE CONTACT for the Ascended Masters is able to RAISE THE CONSCIOUSNESS TO MEET THAT OF THE ASCENDED BEINGS. When you contact the Ascended Masters, since they have overcome the world of form as we know it, and are now the fullness of God’s Love and Wisdom, their instruction is TRUTH, and when followed, will set mankind FREE!
The TRUE CONTACT is always in control of the mind and body, and the Ascended Masters NEVER WORK IN THE DARK, but ALWAYS IN BLAZING LIGHT. They never exalt any human personality, and accomplish all through the power of Divine Love, and they are absolutely SELFLESS and never make mistakes. (only the human makes mistakes)
IS—(NAME OF PERSON)—A GOOD CHANNEL?
This is, by far, the most frequently asked question. The most seasoned chelas have difficulty (despite their claims) in mastering the subject of discrimination. This subject is so largely misunderstood and so important, that a major part of a future lesson is devoted to it. It is suggested that the sincere seeker of truth consult the many references of the Masters on discrimination (there are about 90 of them in the Index to the Bridge to Freedom publications: http://iamtheclassroom.org/index-bridge-freedom-publications/). Here are some major points distinguishing authorized channels of the Great White Brotherhood, from those who are not:
1) On average, once every 100 years, a cosmic stockpile of energy is given to the Brotherhood of Ascended Masaters. (There may be considerably more available energy available now, due to the greatly increased number of dedicated chelas worldwide issuing decrees, singing, visualizing etc.) This stockpile is awarded to a particular Master, or Group of Masters, as part of a special dispensation. This dispensation is used to give out new information on Cosmic Law, the current activity of the Brotherhood and information relating to the ‘great need of the hour’, their Retreats, and other information that the individual can use either to make the Ascension in this embodiment, or to consciously cooperate with the Brotherhood.
2) After initial contact, the new channel is trained for many years (often lifetimes) before he/she is allowed to give dictations to the public, and is trusted to be a messenger for the Great White Brotherhood.
3) There is never any glorification of the outer self (such as newly-assumed titles). Any semblance of ego or arrogance immediately shuts the door.
4) There is never any condition of trance or losing consciousness, nor losing control of mind or body.
5) A special cherubim is appointed to ensure that there is a continuous, clear line of communication between the Ascended Realms and the physical octave.
6) The true contact knows that all information so obtained remains the property of the Great White Brotherhood. As such, it must be shared freely with everyone, (and if printed should be distributed at reasonable price, preferably cost)
There can be no restrictions whatsoever in the distribution of literature and there should be no commercial activity behind the endeavour.
7) The messenger is aware that the Master who obtained the dispensation originally, is responsible for replenishing the cosmic stockpile. He went out on a limb, so to speak, hoping that the students would return the energy thus spent, through decrees, visualizations, songs, the distribution of the literature or translating such material for the greatest benefit of all.
8) The true contact practices the rules of spiritual courtesy. He acknowledges and gives credit to other messengers of the Brotherhood.
Channels who do not match in all respects this criteria, fall in a different category. They may make a constructive contribution, but they are channeling only partial truth; they are unable to give a clear and truly reliable message.
Many individuals both see and hear on the inner levels of consciousness, and also receive many promptings which prove advantageous for the GOVERNING OF THEIR OWN LIVES, but these individuals have not been chosen by the Masters to be an instrument who is QUALIFIED to bring forth a WORLD-WIDE INSTRUCTION for an ERA OF TIME!
WHAT IS THE MEANING OF THE WORD “BRIDGE” AS USED HERE?
It means a BRIDGE OF LIGHT-ENERGY from Heaven to Earth, which is being built by the great Ascended Host of Light from the prayers, petitions, and decrees of the students who are consciously serving with them at this time. Everyone who believes in the Ascended Masters and CALLS TO THEM, strengthens this BRIDGE. There are students in America and throughout the world who meet in groups and issue POSITIVE PRAYERS (or decrees)—combining their energies in calling to their God Presence and the Ascended Host of Light to remove the CAUSES behind all distress and bring about the illumination, purification, healing and perfection of all life.
WHAT IS “THE BRIDGE TO FREEDOM”?
It is the instrument through which the instruction was given forth by the Ascended Masters on how each one can purify and harmonize his four bodies (the physical, etheric, mental, and emotional vehicles), so that each one may “sow” only that which brings perfection into his world. This teaching shows how to “liberate” the CHRIST WITHIN and thus fulfill his reason for being, by achieving the goal of all life—the ascension. In addition, the teaching explains how the students can cooperate with the Great Ones to further the progress of all life on the planet and the planet itself.
WHY AND WHEN DID THE “BRIDGE TO FREEDOM” TEACHINGS COME FORTH?
The first issues of the BRIDGE TO FREEDOM Magazine came forth in April of 1952. Its purpose was to acquaint mankind with the various Ascended Masters, their homes and foci of light, and the truth that will be the code of conduct for the next two thousand years. The retreats, homes and foci were once physical structures on the Earth, where the God-powers of light and love were drawn and radiated forth to bless and assist mankind. When the physical structures were destroyed in ages past, the etheric replicas remained and have continued to pour forth their blessings.
WHO ARE THE SPONSORS FOR THIS ACTIVITY?
The Ascended Masters and Cosmic Beings (of whom the Ascended Jesus Christ is but one member) are known as the Great White Brotherhood, and specifically the Ascended Master El Morya, the Lord Maha Chohan (who represents the Holy Spirit mentioned in all religious teachings), and the Ascended Master Saint Germain, who is in charge of the Earth for the next 2000 years and is bringing the ERA OF FREEDOM to ALL life—and ALL the Ascended Host of Light are assisting in this gigantic task.
