Class of the Golden Cycle
A Profile of Ernon, Rai of Suern


Who is Rai Ernon?

We learn of this extraordinary figure from the book A Dweller on Two Planets by Phylos the Tibetan, published in 1899. It is the story of the incarnations of Phylos the Tibetan. We see him on ancient Lemuria, on Atlantis and in America in the nineteenth century.

Phylos recounts in detail his incarnation as Zailm Numinos about 13,000 years ago on Atlantis and as Walter Pierson in nineteenth-century America. We learn by his own telling what his soul went through as he sowed and reaped positive and negative karma, dealt successfully and unsuccessfully with the challenges of his psychology and his personal momentums, encountered the Lord Christ, who prophesied to him and appeared to him at the hour of his death on Atlantis, and finally found resolution in the nineteenth century. It is a fascinating study because the story of Phylos is also our story. For we are all Atlanteans come again.

I’ve been delivering an ongoing series of lectures on this book at Summit University and on the road because it gives us such an understanding of karma and reincarnation, of the grace of Jesus Christ and our responsibility to balance our debts to Life. I have delivered these lectures so that you could have them on audio- or videotapes to introduce your friends to the Teachings of the Ascended Masters in your own home.

Certainly the book A Dweller on Two Planets is the foremost book that we can give to serious students on the Path who are new to these teachings. It is very readable in a nineteenth-century-style English. It gives us an awareness of just how rich was the vocabulary of Frederick Oliver, who was yet in his teens when he served as the amanuensis for the adept Phylos the Tibetan, who dictated the book to him.

And so, in this book we come upon the story of the Rai Ernon. Rai is an Atlantean word meaning “emperor” or “monarch.”  When Phylos was embodied as Zailm, Rai Ernon was the emperor of the land of Suern. This land encompassed present-day India and part of Arabia.

The people of Suern possessed seemingly miraculous powers, including the ability to precipitate their own food. These powers stemmed first of all from their strict adherence to a moral code forced upon them by their monarch. Secondly, the Suernis enjoyed these powers by the intercession of the occult adepts of the time, who were called the Sons of the Solitude.

Rai Ernon was one of the Sons of the Solitude. These Sons were celibate, lived without families, often apart from civilization. In exceptional cases, they returned to civilization to serve their fellowman in Church and State. They went through years of training and it was a course of embodiment upon embodiment as they became the unascended and then the ascended adepts.

Rai Ernon possessed extraordinary powers whereby he could defeat his country’s enemies without having to use weapons. In A Dweller on Two Planets we read an eyewitness account of how Ernon single-handedly conquered an army of 160,000 Chaldeans.

To me it is one of the most outstanding records in akasha that has thus far come to light that illustrates this power. From it we understand just how profound is the work of the Son of the Solitude, just how lonely that path is and what great power God will entrust to the unascended individual, even to you or to me, if we prove ourselves faithful in all things in the judicious use of God’s power.

And so, it is recounted with great poignancy by one who was an eyewitness–Lolix, daughter of the chief of the Chaldean army.

The Chaldean army had invaded Suern, which had no physical defenses. They had taken Suernis as prisoners, torturing and killing some. As the Chaldeans approached the capital city they saw a solitary, unarmed elderly man walking toward them. Lolix relates that “he was tall, erect as a soldier, and had dignity of mien that made him splendid to look upon.”

The chief of the Chaldeans said to the old man, “What saith thy ruler?”

The man answered, “He saith:  ‘Bid this stranger depart lest my wrath awake, for lo, I shall smite him if he obey me not!  Terrible is mine anger.’”

The chief said, “What ho!  And his army, I have seen none.”

“Chief,” said the elderly envoy, in a low, earnest tone, “thou hadst best depart. I am that Rai, and his army also. Leave this land now; soon thou canst not. Go, I implore thee!”

The chief refused. He vowed to attack the Suerni capital in the morning. Ernon again tried to convince the chief to depart, but he only laughed in scorn.

Ernon told him, “[Prince,] I am sorrowful!  But be it as thou wilt. Thou hast been warned to leave. Thou hast heard of the power of the Suern, and believed not. But now, feel it!”

Lolix described what happened next:  “With these words the Rai swept his outpointing index-finger over the place where stood our pride–the splendid two thousand.”  These were leaders of giant stature who had been responsible for torturing and murdering the Suerni citizens. “[The Rai’s] lips moved and I barely heard the low-spoken words:  ‘Yeovah, strengthen, my weakness. So dieth stubborn guilt.’”

Lolix continued:


      What then befell so filled all spectators with horror, so wrought upon their superstition, that for full five minutes after, scarce a sound was heard. Of all those veteran warriors not one was left alive. At the gesture of the Suerni their heads fell forward, their grasp was loosed on their spears, and they fell as drunken men to the earth. Not a sound, save that of their precipitation, not a struggle; death had come to them as it comes to those whose hearts stop pulsing....

      Ernon [then] bowed his head and prayed...:  “Lord, do this thing for thy servant, I beseech thee!”

   Lolix went on:


      Then, as I gazed on the victims, I saw them arise one by one, and each gather up his spear and shield and helmet. Thereafter, in little irregular squads they marched towards us, towards me. O! My God! and passed on to the river!  As they passed I saw that their eyes were half-closed and glazed in death; the movement of their limbs was mechanical; they walked as if hung on wires, and their armor clanked and clanged in a horrid, mocking ring. As, one by one, the squads came to the river, they walked in, deeper and deeper, till the waters closed over their heads, and they were gone forever, gone to feed the crocodiles which already roared and snarled over their prey adown the stream of Gunja. <1>

   The rest of the army fled in terror. The chief remained captive in Suern and Ernon sent the Chaldean women to Atlantis.



Despite their great powers, the Suernis were not a happy people. Zailm noticed that the people of Suern did not love their monarch, the Rai Ernon.

Phylos, writing of his visit to Suern as Zailm the Atlantean, said:  “It was a strange people, the Suerni. The elder people seemed never to smile, not because they were engaged in occult study, but because they were filled with wrath. On every countenance seemed to rest a perpetual expression of anger. Why, I pondered, should this thing be?  Is it a result of the magical abilities they possess?” <2>

Ernon explained to Zailm:


      I have sought that the Suerni may know the law, that they may be the masters, not the creatures, of circumstance. But because they know a few things of magic, and in the greater feats were aided by the “Sons” [of the Solitude] dwelling amongst them, lo, they are content.

      And behold! they rebel against punishment on account of the lustful nature they do indulge, and curse me mightily because I exact obedience to the law, and penalty for the infraction thereof; and they curse my brother “Sons” [of the Solitude] who do aid me, therefore is their wrath which it hath so troubled thee to witness.

      My people do things strange in thy sight,...yet have no wisdom why it is so, and work their wonders heedless of Yeovah. Wherefore they are a brood of sorcerers, and do not work white magic, which is beneficent, but black magic, which is sorcery. It shall work them exceeding woe. I would...have taught these my people faith, hope, knowledge and charity, which same make pure religion undefiled. <3>

   Ernon continued sorrowfully:


      Oh, Suernis, Suernis!  I have given up my life for thee!  I have striven to lead thee into Espeid (Eden) to teach thee of its beauties, and thou wouldst not!  I have tried to make thee van [that is, in the vanguard] of all nations and thy name synonym with justice and mercy and love of God, and how hast thou requited me?  I would be as a father to thee, and thou didst curse me in thy heart!  Keener than knives is ingratitude!

      I would have led thee to the heights of glory, but thou wouldst rather lie in wallow of ignorance, like swine, content to do what are marvels to other people, but thyself all ignorant of their import. Thou art an infidel, ingrate race, believing not in Yeovah, content to live by the little thou knowest, too slothful to learn, more ungrateful to Yeovah than to thy Rai!

      O, Suernis, Suernis! thou hast cast me off and made my heart to bleed!  I go. From thy midst the “Sons” go also, a mournful band of disappointed men. And thou shalt become few where thou art many, a derision before men and a prey to the Chaldeans. Yea, thou shalt dwindle and shalt wait until the centuries, even ninety centuries, are fled into eternity. And in that day thou shalt suffer until the time of him who shall be called Moses. And of them it shall be said, “They are the seed of Abraham.”

      And behold, even as now the Spirit of God is abroad in the land, immanent in the Sons of the Solitude, and ye do mock it, so in a remote day shall His spirit become manifest and shall incarnate as the Christ, and so shall the perfect human glow with the Spirit, and become First of the Sons of God. Yet shalt thou even then know Him not, but shalt crucify Him; and thy punishment shall go down the ages until that Spirit comes again in the hearts of those who do follow Him, and finds thee scattered to the four winds!  Thus shalt thou be punished!

      From now until then shalt thou earn thy bread by the sweat of thy face. Thou shalt no more have the regal power of defense, lest thou use it for offense. I will no more restrain thee.

      My people, oh, my people!  [How] ungrateful!  I forgive thee, for thou canst not know how I love thee!  I go. Oh!  Suernis, Suernis, Suernis! <4>

   Phylos writes, “At the last word the noble ruler’s voice lowered to a murmur, and he buried his tearful face in his hands and sat bowed in silent grief, except for a sigh of sorrow which once or twice he uttered.” <5>  With this, Rai Ernon passed away.

Upon Ernon’s death the people lost their powers, as he had foretold. He was their Guru and they were the ungrateful chelas. They had had their powers only by his grace and sponsorship. They were no longer able to precipitate their own food. In order to survive they had to learn the basics of agriculture, husbandry, mining and spinning under the guidance and training of the Atlanteans.

What the Ascended Masters have revealed about the Suernis is that they were originally Atlanteans. I gave the details of their history in my lecture “The Golden Age of Jesus Christ on Atlantis.”  This lecture and its teaching is an all-time favorite of mine. I think I’ve enjoyed giving that lecture more than any other that I’ve given.

To review it briefly, Jesus was the emperor of a golden age on Atlantis 35,000 years ago. He stepped down as monarch of Atlantis because 80 percent of the people demanded it. The 20 percent who supported Jesus left Atlantis with him and traveled to Suern. This was about two million people. One million of them made their ascension from the land of Suern. The other million continued to embody. Most of them went astray and lost the tie to their Holy Christ Self.

These million souls continued to reincarnate on Suern and Atlantis. Through the centuries they gave birth to many of the souls who had turned against Jesus during the golden age on Atlantis. So at the time of Zailm, former Atlanteans from that golden age were embodied on Suern. These Suernis continued to reincarnate and continued the stiff-necked and stubborn behavior they had exhibited on Atlantis and in Suern.

The Suernis were then given the opportunity to embody as the seed of Abraham to atone for the karma they had made, some of them by betraying Jesus during his golden age on Atlantis and others by descending into a downward spiral of evolution on Suern. It was for these karmas that the children of Israel were put into captivity in Egypt.

The children of Israel have continued to reincarnate to the present day. The one million who had been with Jesus on Atlantis reincarnated in the tribe of Joseph through his sons, Ephraim and Manasseh, whom Jacob blessed as his own. The tribe of Joseph was one of the ten tribes of the Northern Kingdom of Israel. Today, these one million are reincarnated principally among the peoples of the British Isles, the United States and Canada.

The Suernis reincarnated in the remaining nine of the ten tribes of the Northern Kingdom of Israel and in the two tribes of the Southern Kingdom of Judah. Today, those nine tribes of the Northern Kingdom are generally reincarnated among the European nations as Christians, whereas the two tribes of the Southern Kingdom (Judah and Benjamin) and some Levites are generally reincarnated among the modern-day Jews. For reasons of karma, the seed of Abraham have also reincarnated in every nation.


During his life in nineteenth-century America as Walter Pierson, Phylos encounters Rai Ernon once again. While working at his gold mine in California, Walter becomes friends with one of his employees, a Chinaman named Quong. Quong reveals that he is a member of an occult brotherhood and he invites Walter to the brotherhood’s lodge. There Walter meets a master from the planet Venus named Mol Lang, who takes him in his finer bodies to Venus. Mol Lang is Rai Ernon come again.

During Walter’s visit to Venus, Mol Lang teaches him about the purpose of life, the law of karma and reincarnation, the nature of life after death, twin flames and other eternal truths.

Describing Mol Lang, Phylos writes:  “[He had] deep-set eyes, under massive brows, and a head of similar contour to that of the philosopher Socrates; his snowy hair and long, white beard, together with a soldierly erectness of person, made Mol Lang...the very personification of occult wisdom, from my point of view....His turban...was blue, mottled with brown....He wore a long, gray robe,...belted at the waist. On his feet, of goodly, delicate shape, were sandals.”  Phylos says his faith in Mol Lang was inspired “by the gentle dignity and kindly love” he saw “beaming from those deep-set, calm gray eyes.” <6>

The last time we hear of Mol Lang in A Dweller on Two Planets, he is engaged in service to humanity. Phylos writes:


      Mol Lang...was occupied in the work that attracted him, that of guiding, teaching and helping mankind, en masse, as well as individually, that portion of our race yet on Earth. Unconscious of his agency, or of how, with others equally great, Mol Lang was influencing the affairs of men, these men on Earth went on with their doings, fondly thinking that [they] themselves were doing all. How little humanity on Earth knows that it is thus guided [by the great adepts]. <7>

   This, then, is our view of Ernon, Rai of Suern, who will give to us his dictation. I trust this background places in your heart a great tenderness for this Son of the Solitude.


The Messenger’s Invocation:

Mighty Sons of the Solitude, we invoke thy flame in the name I AM THAT I AM. Helios and Vesta, Alpha and Omega, electronic fire-rings of the Great Central Sun, let thy Light descend in this hour!  Let the flame of God Harmony bring into one chord of Light all servants of the Most High God who minister unto the evolutions of this earth.

By the cosmic cross of white fire, I call to the Seven Holy Kumaras. Clear this place!  Clear these auras of all contaminating influences whatsoever, past, present and future.

Let the Ruby Ray descend!  Buddha of the Ruby Ray, thou art with us still. In thy ruby flame we rejoice. In the seed planted, in the chalice prepared:  I AM WHO I AM.

Elohim of God, Great Central Sun, strengthen thy Light ray to our heart. Let the violet flame we have invoked multiply and multiply again universal freedom in the Cosmic Christ consciousness.

O Divine Mother, nurture our souls!  Bring us to the full flowering of our being.

We assemble in thy oneness, O God, in this place, a point of reference in time and eternity. We span the centuries and the golden highways to the Sun. We are grateful to tarry here in thy service again and again and again according to thy will.

O God Surya, come in thy mighty chariot. Disperse the dark ones!  Bind those who have no more time and space on earth!  Let them be bound by the hosts of the Lord. Archangel Uriel, hear our call!  Hear our call!  Hear our call!

Let there be the binding in this hour and the exorcism of practitioners of the black arts who enslave the children of the Light!

Come forth, Seven Archangels, hosts of the Lord from great cosmic heights. Purge the earth!  Purge America!  And now let the seraphim of God take dominion.

Come forth, Justinius, Captain of Seraphic Bands. We salute thee!  Enjoin us to thy legions. Let us have the armour of seraphim this night. We go forth again, O God, and again. To do thy will is our reason for being.

Amen in the name of the Father.

Amen in the name of the Mother.

Amen in the name of the Son.

Amen in the name of the Holy Spirit.
