Father God & Christ, Consciousness- 9th February 1994

I shall praise the light -
And regard the fires with stern respect,
For too much life becomes as death,
As clarity itself, you cannot see -
As light on light, too bright for me.


THIS Light too bright to see is not a tyrannical benefactor. He is the sweetest of all the Mysteries, and yet impotent at this time, in the task of revealing Himself before the lies. One must bear in mind that two thousand years is but a very little episode; and His descent at that time was, if it could be said, overdue.

The very tide to be reversed, was the way of the atavistic movement which brought souls in herds to the flaming altars of their illuminations; and effectively so, as one purified the soul and chanted their way into Heaven, given to the consolatory Angels as perfected men - perfected, yes, but not self-realized.

The realizations of the Godhead, of that very grandeur which is promoted by Father God Himself, were imparted, lent and spent; and the individual was to be only half of what he might have become, were that he did have the opportunity. But these 'self-less' souls did negate their desire for any part of this World, and with no compelling gravitation tipped off the edge into fanciful spheres of Nirvanic bliss, immersed in the beauteous oceans of dreaming.

Were they to have entered with their egos intact and their self-conscious exactment, they may have marveled at the light-waves and the sublimity therein; choosing too, that moment of peak saturation, whereby so filled, they may have pulled back into the living realms and re-established the relationships and karmas as were waiting. But for the soul who has advanced back to the original paradisiacal determination, the Nirvanic oceans are perilously consuming for there is no will or want for anything more, and the soul is satisfied to dream into eternity.


There are arguments amongst even the greatest of beings as to the desirability of such an outcome. However, from the point of view which does contrast the affirmative, we suggest that Christ has brought the gift of egohood to each soul, a gift which could never be forced in any way, as it would defeat itself thereby. There is always a catch!

There have always been attractive teachers, greatly empowered and motivated to rise upon the peak of the advancing men before them - with this difference: some, not all, are self-realized and self-conscious, whilst their followers are not. Their followers bring to them the power of the accelerated push, for it is as a submission of ego in such devotion; a willing (for there may be no other way) submission of self, confusing the revelations as invoked to be the same as the teacher who is invoking. Thus they will tell you that so and so is the World and is the Christ, when it is but a falsehood - an incredible one at that, to say so. In that instance the teacher has disclosed the inner mysteries in a way which has deflected the truth and reality through that of his own ego. Whilst also the same goes for the student who must go via the teacher rather than through the source, to study, to worship, to experience.

However there are on the other hand, teachers who will stand back and allow their pupils to be led into the inner mysteries, to come to their true knowing for themselves. When this is successfully fused within the pupil, he shall come to love and know the tree or the sand or the sky or the Light or his fellow soul-mate, or his study or his active employment or his inner employment. He shall come to know the qualities of that which is before him intimately, perceiving and loving them with a clarity which is not possible if come to through another.

So you can see that the two teaching techniques are in opposition to one another. The freedom as worked for by us is seized with the riskiness of ill choosing. The mainstream procession of successive enlightened souls tell of a story that by our perspective is of one prematurely completed.

Not all Eastern traditions encouraged the self-less, ego-less path. Not all did require the surrender of Christ, that Heaven be won.

The 'I Am' of Man was/is a bold and enterprising 'I'. It ripples the waters and contests the minor gods before it, it desires continually - desiring to become, desiring to know;

  • desiring to know by becoming (empathy);
  • desiring to become by knowing (study and wisdom);
  • desiring to desire aright and without self-harm (discrimination and karma);
  • desiring to love and therefore to desire again (to acknowledge and return to former love in great joy).
This is the fundamental contrast to the ego-less persuasion. 

The reality of Christ Incarnatus is indisputable. As for the inertia in Man's failing to proclaim this openly and emphatically, the reason is plain - there is always a little 'catch-up' time required before the pneu-mind of Man can find the concept, the phrase, to translate for what the soul already knows. The vocabulary of thinking simply is not available to the ordinary consciousness. The exceptions are those who have had to make the connections with the Christ consciously by effort, and usually with pain also. The reward has been some measure of certainty realized, which in itself is quite a contradiction in terms. However, a measure rather than full complement is all that is achievable given the present conditions upon the Globe. This will change given time, but in the meanwhile a few too many good souls are being bewildered by the lack of constancy between the sight of the soul and the insight that travails it.

The intuitive man may come to his soul-knowledge self assured and strong in heart- the extravaganza of extraneous proof is not required in order to stimulate his inner perception. The psychic senses are underdeveloped and therefore irregular and unreliable in the present constitution of Man. This is why it is hit and miss in all cases - coupled with the fact that the permitting conditions for such intermediary perceptions are appalling and inconclusive to great ability. Even the greatest amongst us may be misled. Conditions change; it has not always been so in the past, nor will it be in the future, but for the time being the passage into clairvoyance is deceptively murky. This is markedly important to keep in mind, especially if one advises you ever believing that their talent in this regard is unquestionably whole or complete.



It is true to say that Christ - the Christ, our Christ - was more readily perceived as an Individual Being, distinct, in times preceding His deeper decension. However, He was not in the common vocabulary. Some things you know but never ever name. You do not know you live with the knowledge, because to name it thus would become a distinction between Christ and You - and this was not so. (Just as one knows their mother way before they name her thus.)

The age of Philosophy reasoned away the golden wisdoms. One by one the sacredness of Man was drawn out and brought to comparison. This was not a bad contest, but the beginning to an almighty appendage of ideas which was to follow Man into the centuries to come, that he might fully discover the true meaning of them, as they demand.

The Wolf-spirits of the Moon are the detainees of human sloth. They are harlequin and of many forms. Quick and strong, they have devoured the astral offcasts and now have a taste for the living as well. Sheltered from the direct light, they slink around the darker aspect of shadowy Moon - cold its heart, cold its bone. The wolverines travel the direct road through to the Earth, and then return.
