Imperative Need For Readiness
Presently, Kuthumi and Jesus, acting together as the Cosmic Christ, also still retain their offices as Chohans of the rays. Do you know why? BECAUSE NO ONE ELSE WAS READY! There was no one to take the places of Kuthumi and Jesus as Chohans of their respective Rays at this moment. (Their Offices have now been filled - but still the need of the hour is for chelas to get ready!)
ARE YOU READY TO RENDER THE SERVICE WHICH WILL BE REQUIRED OF YOU IN THE DAYS TO COME?
Suppose tomorrow you were called upon to take over this sanctuary, to take over its expense, its responsibilities and its frictions, as well as the endeavor to combine the many selves into one. Suppose, one day, when you were alone in the heart of a business district or a shopping center, you were called upon to give instantaneous protection to many people. Suppose the streets began to crack open and the buildings began to shake. Suppose also your great rivers here were suddenly to rise above their normal water line—would you be the calm, poised, majestic presence of your own God-Self, in full command and control of the situation?
Measure yourselves, children, oh—not with such a tension that you become impossible to use at all—but with wisdom! LORD BUDDHA DID NOT EXPECT TO BE CALLED FOR SEVENTEEN YEARS. He was ready. Lord Maitreya did not expect to be called either, but he was ready: Kuthumi and Holy Jesus were ready! Others, thinking they had seventeen years yet to prepare for Chohanship were not ready. You will recall that the wise virgins had the oil in their lamps and they were ready with lamp lighted when the bridegroom came.
FIVE YEARS BEFORE THE CONTINENT OF ATLANTIS SANK BENEATH
THE WAVES OF WHAT IS NOW THE ATLANTIC OCEAN, WE ALERTED THE PEOPLE WHO LIVED THERE AS TO COMING CATACLYSMIC EVENTS. Ascended Beings and cosmic messengers from many realms came and spoke through the priesthood and the oracles. At first, the people listened to their words and the idea was entertaining for a while. It was something new and different and it was exciting. Then, as nothing spectacular happened immediately or soon thereafter, the people went back to their pursuits of so-called “happiness.”
WHEN EARTH CHANGES AND CATACLYSMS CAME AS PREDICTED, THE GREAT RUMBLINGS OF THE EARTH AND THE SINKING OF CONTINENTS, WHO WAS READY? ONLY A HANDFUL, willing to take those magnificent Flames north, east, south and west. The rest of the population went down! Get ready! We are investing tremendous energies in you, beloved ones, energies which are our life, energies which are Cosmic and we are investing them in you for a definite purpose.
