“Here Am I. Send Me.”
Accept Your Seraph as Teacher,
Initiator and Dearest Friend


In the year that king Uzziah died I saw also the Lord sitting upon a throne, high and lifted up, and his train filled the temple.

Above it stood the seraphims:  each one had six wings; with twain he covered his face, and with twain he covered his feet, and with twain he did fly.

And one cried unto another and said, “Holy, holy, holy is the Lord of hosts. The whole earth is full of his glory.”

And the posts of the door moved at the voice of him that cried and the house was filled with smoke.

Then said I, “Woe is me!  for I am undone because I am a man of unclean lips and I dwell in the midst of a people of unclean lips:  for mine eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts.”

Then flew one of the seraphims unto me, having a live coal in his hand, which he had taken with the tongs from off the altar.

And he laid it upon my mouth and said, “Lo, this hath touched thy lips, and thine iniquity is taken away and thy sin purged.”

Also I heard the voice of the Lord, saying, “Whom shall I send,

 and who will go for us?”  Then said I, “Here am I. Send me.”            - Isaiah 6:1-8

 Are you ready for the seraphim of God to place the live coal upon your mouth?  [“Yes!”]

Maybe yes and maybe no, yet it is well that you aspire to this goal. For the Lord God seeks you and he will pursue you as the hound of heaven until he can mold you and shape you to be his instrument, yea, to be his mouthpiece.

And so the prophets did go forth. And the prophets knew the presence of Elohim and the prophets knew and did receive from the Archangels even the presence of I AM THAT I AM. Fear not, then, for the purging fire shall only deliver you to a new level of the concentration of the will of God within your being.

The will of God is the blueprint of cosmos. It is the higher way. It transcends all failures of the human way and does restore to you in your inner being, O beloved, even the very essence of the Divine Mother.

You are at that place now where you can wholeheartedly embrace the will of God, which is not only the blueprint of cosmos but the blueprint of your soul. And you can be restored to the plane of your divine plan as year upon year the rings of light in your Tree of Life increase. Thus, it has been said and I say it again:  I urge you not to entertain in any way the consciousness of sin or failure or worthlessness.

Nevertheless, in the face of the Lord God and his seraphim, even the highest initiates of earth have covered themselves with the sense that they were not worthy to stand in the Presence of God and his holy angels. But you should also know that there is an element of human pride in entertaining the sense of not being worthy:  for only God can make you worthy and he alone shall judge your unworthiness. And if he choose to make you worthy, then I say, step into those shoes of worthiness and wear them!

Wear them in the name of your God and see how in this life you can yet achieve resolution in all things within yourself and how you can make a mark on this scene that shall be for others who come after you a signpost that says:  Indeed all can enter the kingdom if they follow the path of initiation and understand well the rules whereby the soul does take each successive step.

You have read the legend of the child Mary and how she did ascend the stairs of the degrees at the tender age of three. So too, the child within you, the child whom you would heal, is also mounting that staircase with great hope that the Christ of you will liberate that child from bondage and allow that child to grow and wax strong in the wisdom of God and in the fervor of his Spirit and in the knowledge of the Law so that you are also able to discourse with the doctors in the temple.

I wield my sword of blue flame and with it my circle of blue flame!  I come for a mighty clearing in the earth. And I am grateful that such as ye gather to form your own circle about me whereby the Great Law does allow me to descend, to inhabit your bodies and to give you the inheritance that is truly yours but that you have denied yourselves and that well-meaning teachers have denied you by handing down to you what was handed down to them:  incorrect knowledge and incomplete knowledge. And so, ignorance begets ignorance until the Lords of Karma send enlightened souls, Christed ones and avatars to dispel the maya that has settled on all of humanity.

The spiritual paths of the world’s religions contain a high degree of truth but those who would control the evolutions of earth have inserted just enough error to take mankind from the course of full God-realization. And all the while, the fallen angels point the finger and say, “It is blasphemy to so attempt to attain God-realization. What’s more, you cannot talk to God and he cannot talk to you.”

I tell you, it is neither blasphemy nor idolatry to so attempt to attain God-realization, for God has made you in the image and likeness of himself. And in order that you might attain God-realization, God has opened the channels of communication between you and him, and he will withhold nothing from you so long as you dwell in consciousness in that image and likeness.

Now, how can you, pray tell, be made in the image and likeness of God and not be the manifestation of God himself?  I tell you it is impossible. And the simple logic of the child does challenge the convoluted logic of those who would keep mankind bound to the sense of sin just enough so that they believe the lie that they can never win, they can never win–that no man is good enough to sire the Christ Child, that no woman is good enough to bear that Child. Thus all are weighted down with the sense of sin. This is the blasphemy of fallen angels–to belittle the creation of God, for whom they have disdain and whom they have kept in subjection for centuries.

It does take spine, indeed, as the sacred fire raised up in you to challenge all that moves against the path of those who know that the ultimate goal of life is to walk in the footsteps of the Lord Christ, then to receive his mantle, then to be one with him in the fullness of his Sacred Heart.

Yes, this goal of life you can see because the Lord left an historical record for you. You can see, as some have said to the Messenger, that the way is hard. But the way is not that hard. For with every temptation, the Lord does provide a way to overcome it, as it is written. <1>

If, then, you are willing to go through what your Lord went through, you shall also win the coveted prize of personal Christhood and the crown of everlasting life. It is an endurance test, and he that endures to the end of the travail of his karma shall receive that crown. <2>

You know, it is a cast of the mind that says, “Such and such is hard. Such and such is easy.”  Is it not all relative?

Is it hard to be a Tibetan Buddhist monk and to have Chinese hordes come down and destroy your entire civilization, all that you have preserved of Buddha’s teachings for the world?  Is it hard to see your nuns and sisters, your wives and mothers raped and debased to this lowest shame of shames?

Is that hard, beloved?  Indeed it is hard. Could you withstand it?

Sometimes we wonder, for you have been pampered in a nation sponsored by the hosts of Light, where you have not seen such a raping of souls and minds and bodies and of an entire culture. But look up and receive the warning of Elohim, for those things are coming upon the earth and upon America to test you one and all!  For your souls must be strengthened ere you meet your Adversary and meet your Christ and pass the initiations of both encounters.

So then, your outlook as to what you think is hard and what you think is easy is relative. It is relative to the disciplines that parents and teachers have put upon you or the total absence of discipline (meaning discipleship) you may have received. And as a result, the least little thing or the least little task an employer or supervisor requires of you may evoke a reaction in defense of your ego, which resents being told what to do by anyone, anytime, anywhere.

Yes, beloved, there are those who would be their own boss and then there are those who recognize that the greatest boss of all is their own Higher Self, the Christ Presence. If you listen to that inner voice and follow that inner voice unerringly, you will find that, although the way may be steep, every carefully calculated step of the climb is worth the effort.

If you will set your sights on your spiritual goal and make your mark in the earth that says I will accomplish this and this in my life, you will reach the summit of being in this life, you will enter into that union with God, Elohim, whom you knew in the Beginning.

Do not count anything as too hard, for with the Lord all things are possible!  And with the Lord you can make light of persecution. With the Lord you can unburden yourself of the weight of world karma by calling to God and his august emissaries to effect world transmutation through your thunderous calls to the violet flame, punctuated by those bolts of blue lightning you release from the hierarchs of the First and Fourth Rays to break up the recalcitrant records of humanity’s miscreations.

You can live in the Light-Joy of your Lord and take it with you when for a cycle you must descend to the depths of Death and Hell in the astral plane to balance some crusty, callous karma made so long ago that you have no memory of it. Yes, you can keep his Light-Joy with you–else, if you do not, you will receive from him that look that says, “Have you lost my Light and my Joy, O my beloved?”

For this is Jesus’ great desiring for you–that his Light-Joy should remain in you and that your Light-Joy might be full. <3> Are you not out of step with your Lord when you let anything take from you his Light and Joy?

Do you not rejoice to see souls coming into their own God-reality, to see the mayic clouds of illusion transmuted in the violet flame by the Cosmic Christ through the sun of Helios and Vesta?

The circle and sword of blue flame that you wield in my name each time you give my decree 10.14, beloved, does keep from you all sorts of discarnate and addictive entities and calamities and karmas that would otherwise ensnare you in their traps. Broaden your horizons and do not weary in invoking the Power, Wisdom and Love of Elohim!

For you will find yourself on the front lines with legions of seraphim and legions of blue lightning angels under the command of Archangel Michael. And they will take you (your soul clothed in your etheric body after you put your physical body to sleep at night) to Archangel Michael’s retreat at Banff, where you will join one of the many armies of heaven to rescue the little children in every nation.

Blessed ones, there is so much that you can do for the victory of your Community and your planet without having to rearrange your life too much. Yes, a little bit of rearranging of the furnishings of your life will suit you well, and so will a cutting down of all unnecessary encumbrances.

I, Astrea, say to you, consider yourself in spring training with battalions of angels who drill and drill to be able to meet the rising levels of descending karma and the forces of Evil. They know that their time is almost up and they accelerate their moves against the children of Light. Thus John wrote:  “Therefore rejoice, ye heavens and ye that dwell in them. Woe to the inhabiters of the earth and of the sea!  For the devil is come down unto you having great wrath because he knoweth that he hath but a short time.” <4>

There is a major confrontation taking place in this age and decade between the forces of Light and the forces of Darkness. It is not the end of the world, but for some it may be the end of unreality and the dawn of God-Reality. And those who do not act in time may be required by the Law of Love to return to embodiment so that they might prove once and for all that they can be victors and A students in earth’s schoolroom.

Beloved hearts, you know your assignment. You know what it means to be a pillar of fire in the earth and to be there when you are needed. Take the tools that you have been given. Call to Purity and Astrea. Know that we have come today to give you through the Messenger this extended teaching on wielding the spiritual sword because you need it, because times are accelerating and you must deal with your karma and dispatch <*> those demons. We do not give you teaching unless that teaching is needed by some and by all.

Let us return, then, to the vision of the seraph descending with a live coal and placing it on Isaiah’s tongue, initiating him for his calling to be a prophet of God and his mission to save Israel and Judah. And when he was purged, God said, speaking to the heavenly council, “Whom shall I send, and who will go for us?”  And without hesitation, before the council could respond, came Isaiah’s reply:  “Here am I!  Send me.”

How many millions of people mock the notion that man can commune with God and God can commune with man!  It is the prerogative of God and man to talk to each other. Let none deny it!  For all who deny this teaching and deny it to their flocks will suffer the karma for the sin against the Holy Ghost.

Oh, the scoffing by those who are compelled to deny the natural communication between Creator and creation!  Yet God speaks to the heart of his own through the still, small voice of conscience. This is the voice of each one’s Holy Christ Self. And the Holy Christ Self does in turn transmit to the Mighty I AM Presence the prayers, the implorings of the soul.

People deny it because they know that if they should hear the voice of God, they should be compelled to follow it. They do not want to hear the voice of God because they do not want to obey it. They know that if they heard it they would rail against it and in their railing incur a mountain of karma.

When Saint Stephen rebuked the Sanhedrin, they gnashed on him with their teeth. And when he then exclaimed “Behold, I see the heavens opened and the Son of man standing on the right hand of God,” they stopped their ears and stoned him <5>–not only because they could not stand the Light released in his communion with God but because in their clever carnal-mindedness they sought to fool the karmic law by not hearing the voice of God or Saint Stephen. So even today they close their ears and they close their chakras that no sound of God’s voice or the voice of interceding angel from higher octaves may descend to them for their quickening, for they desire not the quickening but the things of this world.

Let them have them!  Let them be satiated!  Let them ultimately come to that place where, as it is written, they will cry out to the mountains, “Fall on us!”  and to the hills, “Cover us!” <6> And they will hide in the caves from the judgment and the wrath of the descent of the LORD, the Ancient of Days.

Not so in your case, beloved. You are eager to hear the voice of God; therefore you subscribe to the teachings we send you through the Messenger. But know that you, too, may drown out our admonishments with cares and occupations and some, perhaps unconscious, twinge of fear that says:  “Well, I do desire to hear the voice of my Lord, my Holy Christ Self, but, then again, what if? What if he tells me to do something I cannot do, I do not desire to do, I won’t do? Best that I preoccupy myself in doing good works and more good works and more good works until I fill all of my life with good works.”  Yes, you can be “careful and troubled about many things,” <7> or you can decide that this is the day when you separate out from the dreary depression of the gray ones and enter into the joy of the Lord. And in that joy you will also know the sorrow that comes before but not after the resurrection.

Yes, beloved. At this moment there is no undue pressure upon you from God or the angelic hosts or the saints who have gone before you, but I do bring to your attention the pressing in of karmic events that are descending at the physical level. In the very least, be prepared to deal with these pressing karmic events and to maintain the peace-commanding presence in the center of your household whereby you can say to all the negative forces that threaten nations and cities and communities and families:

Peace, be still and know that the I AM of me is God!

When you gain a momentum in offering the resurrection mantras on behalf of all servants of God and elemental life, as Jesus has given you through the Messenger the Ritual of the Resurrection Flame, <8> I tell you that you will be empowered by the Spirit of the Resurrection, who is a Cosmic Being from out the Great Central Sun.   <9>

Events beyond the control of any angel or Cosmic Being, events that show the consistency and the impartiality of God’s Law, events that are the cycling and recycling of planetary karma–these are not abrogated save one such as Moses should plead for the mercy of God on behalf of a wayward people. And so you have been told that when you invoke the violet flame and you call for the mitigation of the descending woes and karmas, there is indeed a mitigation of individual and world karma proportionate to the number of devotees invoking the violet flame on behalf of the people. In this role you intercede before the Holy of holies as did the Levitical priesthood and as do the members of the priesthood of Melchizedek and Lord Zadkiel.

We have said and we say it again:  There is yet time for you to invoke that world transmutation!  There is yet time for the sacred fire to descend upon you through the agency of the seraphim as it descended on Isaiah. This is the hour when you can call upon God to send that seraph for the purging of your soul. And when you receive him, you do your part by calling to the violet flame to transmute all records of sin. Then, when you have set your house in order as a violet flame house, you can call to him again. And this time, by your decrees, that seraph will come to you as initiator, as teacher, as dearest friend.

You need not fear the seraphim. That single seraph assigned to you, beloved, will not burn your tongue with a hot coal but he will purge your throat chakra to the extent allowed by the Great Law. And he will bit by bit, day by day require of you that you cast some morsel of misqualified substance into the violet flame and that you change certain thought patterns, certain emotional patterns and certain lower vibrations that you have carried for far too long. That single seraph assigned to you will assist you and deliver you, if you so desire his assistance and his deliverance.

These seraphim have gathered here in the Heart of the Inner Retreat by leave of Elohim of the Fourth Ray. They will be assigned to each one who desires to receive the initiations outlined. I only counsel you thus:  God has sent angels to your side in the past. You have gone forth from such dictations with a vibration so high that you could scarcely remember what was said. And by and by you have forgot that angels or elementals were assigned to you and you have forgot to command them in the service of the Holy Christ Self of all sons and daughters of God on earth. So this time, beloved, write down the following, if you will, in your daily planner or calendar:

On this day and date and hour [Saturday, June 26, 1993, at 6:10 p.m.] a seraphim has come to me, assigned by Elohim of the Fourth Ray. I have accepted him as my tutor and my initiator and I will strive daily to rise to new levels of my own God Presence dwelling in me bodily, even as the Lord God dwelt bodily in my Lord and Saviour. I will follow my Lord all the way to Golgotha and beyond. I will follow him to the East, to India. I will follow him unto the resurrection and unto eternal life!

If you desire to do these things and to affirm them daily, write them down before you retire this night so that you will remember that you have entered into an association with a seraph sent from the throne of God to deliver you that you might deliver others. This is the calling, beloved. This is the reason for being.

Let your flesh be filled with Light!  Let your chakras be filled with Light!  But know also that a day and date and hour comes to all when the opportunity for ultimate victory in this particular lifetime draws to a close.

Set your goal for what you desire to accomplish on the spiritual path and what you desire to accomplish in your profession and in relation to your secular and karmic responsibilities. Set your timetables, set your lifelines. And see to it that when this earthly life span is through (and you enter the gates of the heaven-world once again, as you have entered them many times before) you have books of good record under your arm that you or your recording angel have kept in the library of your etheric body so that you may open them before the Lords of Karma and say, “See, day by day by day I have done thus and such in the service of my God.”

The Keeper of the Scrolls will bring you the scrolls of record from the archives of the Brotherhood. And you will know that this was not a lifetime spent in vain but that the Light that you invoked was also anchored in the earth. You will know that for the healing of the earth you came and for the healing of earth’s evolutions you came, and the record will show that you have played your part and therefore you will have no regrets.

I see before me the life records of all of you and millions of others who at one time or another have been on the path of the Great White Brotherhood, going back many, many lifetimes, but for this or that reason have departed from it. And what is the overwhelming feeling of those souls who have concluded a lifetime apart from the beaten trail of Lord Maitreya’s Mystery School and now stand before the Lords of Karma?

One word:  regret. “Oh, I could have done so much more!  Oh, why did I waste my time in idle chatter and gossip?  Oh, why did I not pursue giving greater love in a more tangible way to those who so needed my love?”  And so on and so forth. Thus, many beg for the opportunity to come again to fulfill their reason for being, which they neglected for other things.

 In the beauty of this place set apart long ago by Archangels for the coming of the Mystery School, we are gathered. These are precious moments that all look forward to in heaven and on earth.

Therefore, beloved, in this hour and moment I am silent that you might speak to God, to his Christ, and receive, if you so choose, this seraph as your tutor. He is ready to stand with you for the rest of this lifetime if you will it.

[Congregation prays softly to God and to his Christ.]

So, it is enough. If you are undecided, you may take your time to decide until the hour of midnight. This, then, is the greeting of God to your soul, sent and sealed, delivered by the presence of a seraph who will walk with you and counsel you day by day.

In the Light of Purity, in the Light of Astrea, I AM THAT I AM the sealing of the servants of God in their foreheads.

 So, it is done. Purusha. - [24-second standing ovation]
