The Heart Is Everything

To Build for Eternity, Build the Threefold Flame

Hail, keepers of the flame of God! I am here in your midst this day rejoicing, rejoicing in the fire of the heart!

[17-second standing ovation]

Now let us reason together, saith the Lord. So be seated.

I extend my heart flame to you, my purple fiery heart. That heart of mine will see you through. Therefore I take from that heart in this moment its own Electronic Presence. I place it in the heart of your Holy Christ Self. And then what shall we see appear? We shall see the striving of your souls to enter into your own heart's chalice, to clear the misuses of the twelve-petaled heart chakra, to make way for the living Buddha to enter the secret chamber of the heart.

Yes, then, beloved, little by little as you purify (1) the twelve-petaled chakra, (2) the secret chamber of the heart, you will have increments of the replica of my own heart flame. And as you place essences of my flame superimposed upon your threefold flame, we shall begin that balancing action. Remember that I have said “we.” We must do this, beloved, together. I can do something for you but most of all you must do for yourselves.

As we have spoken before, there is nothing more important than the flame of God-immortality. So if you are content to live with a tiny flame that you have never expanded, [that has] never become the magnanimous heart of your beloved Lanello, the fiery heart of El Morya in the will of God, well, beloved, you have a journey to cross. You have challenges to deal with.

The Threefold Flame Is the Essence of Your Immortality

O beloved, when you increase the heart flame and balance it, you will know empowerment. You will know why some lifestreams do not tire, do deliver the Word and the Work. And these are the saints of God, from the Himalayas to the far reaches of Japan to the mountains of China to Africa, Europe and this entire hemisphere. Oh yes, beloved, there are those who by love increase that pink plume. But then there are those among you who neglect accuracy in wisdom's flame or who do not exercise the power of God, the will of God, the intensity of God, the intensification of the God flame within you.

Some time ago the messenger recorded Saint Germain's Heart Meditations.<1> Many of you use these. I still recommend that you put them on when you awaken in the morning and listen to my Heart Meditations and the teachings given by the messenger. For the heart is everything. There is no such thing as ascended beings, Buddhas and bodhisattvas who do not have a threefold flame that far exceeds their own height and even envelops worlds. Contemplate this, for this is your future star.

But in the present, beloved, try as you may, if you do not balance the threefold flame you are not going very far very quickly. For the threefold flame is the essence of your immortality. The threefold flame is the only thing that is immortal about you. Think of this. If that threefold flame be one-sixteenth of an inch in height, I say, nourish it, water it, love it, expand it; and give through that heart flame your love, your joy, your wisdom, your tremendous wonder of the will of God. Understand, beloved, that that which is mortal will remain mortal unless either you ignite the flame or God ignite the flame.* Well, it is God who has ignited this flame, beloved, and it is the individual who has put it out—put it out through anger of various kinds, Martian energies,<2> et cetera.

*The master's use of the subjunctive mood indicates that it is not guaranteed, not inevitable, that the flame will be ignited. Note that while the verb ignite in popular use means “to set fire to, to kindle,” it also means “to subject to the action of fire, to make intensely hot, to cause to glow with heat; in chemical use, specifically to heat to the point of combustion or chemical change” (Oxford English Dictionary).

God Does Measure the Heart

Now understand, beloved, there is not eternal life without the flame in the heart. There is no ascension unless you balance the threefold flame. There is no victory unless it be the victory of your own immortality. All the rest will go into the cremation pyre. Remember that, beloved. What will be left is the essence of a soul that may have gained something of immortal life but not enough to make the ascension. You say, “When will enough be enough?” Well, beloved, do more than you think is enough. Do ten times, a hundred times more than you think will be enough. For God does measure the heart. God does measure the heart.

Therefore see, beloved, as you look at your flesh, you look at your bones, you look at the wondrous body you have, still you know this body cannot transcend this octave. So you see, beloved, the only thing you have going for you is the balancing of the threefold flame and to do this with enough intensity so that in that threefold flame you remove from yourself encrustations of misuses of those plumes. The plumes of the threefold flame ensconced in the white sphere below make up the four points of the four lower bodies.

Now, beloved, see then, if you would build for eternity, then build the threefold flame. If you lose that flame, beloved, you will reincarnate until you find it again. And no master will sponsor you to find a lost threefold flame, for it is your responsibility to keep that flame, which is why I have ordained the Keepers of the Flame Fraternity.<3>

What flame do we keep? We keep the flame of the heart! We keep the flame of the heart. Where is there the fuel for the flame? It is an unfed flame. God fuels it over the crystal cord so long as you tend it, so long as you are at peace with all mankind, with elemental life—peace, peace, beloved, in the heart.

Therefore it is good, it is well to contemplate one's mortality. I ask you to contemplate it, for you will see very quickly that you must do more if you are to guarantee your victory in this life. And do you know you are the guarantor of your own victory? Who else can guarantee your victory! It is your choice. It is your day. It is your moment when you fly solo through the capstone of the pyramid, one at a time. Only one may enter the kingdom of God at the same time.

A Cape of Responsibility, of Cape-Ability

So, beloved, I come to you. For I desire to place upon you and I do place upon you now a cape that is not the replica of my cape but a cape nonetheless. And that cape is a cape of responsibility and a cape, by definition, of cape-ability. What is your cape-ability? What do you carry in stature as a son or daughter of God? What is your mantle? Do you have a mantle? Not all have a mantle, for they have not earned it by meritorious deeds in many lifetimes. The mantle, beloved, is important, for it is a sign of empowerment, a sign that your Holy Christ Self or an ascended master has deemed you worthy of having that mantle.

Contemplate this, beloved: There is a succession of lifetimes that you have entered. According to your karma, according to your good works you have entered those lifetimes, you have performed service. And perhaps you were surrounded by wise parents, wise teachers and even were invited to be under the tutelage of hierarchs of light that are most often never seen on earth, such as Melchizedek and others.

Now, beloved, think of a lifetime when you had the greatest success, the greatest momentum whereby you have wrought wonders in your community, served your people, and been at one with God. This is the lifetime that you want to use, capitalize on, and [about which you want to] say: “I have meritorious deeds of this life. I do not want to see them eradicated. I do not want to see them in a situation where I will lose what I have gained.”

Now since you do not all have memory of all previous lives, you may not realize how you have failed and won, won and failed alternately. This must be contemplated. The hour of contemplation is the hour of retirement when you go before your God, when you kneel in prayer, when you speak to your Lord, your Holy Christ Self, where you implore the presence of the Holy Spirit and the Father-Mother God, where you come to the place of Jesus, where you see him at the fourteen stations of the cross.

Come to the place, beloved, where you see clearly that you are accruing and adding to that threefold flame meritorious deeds. Deeds, beloved. Dynamic decrees give you momentum, give you clearance, give you transmutation. But then there are the works of the hand, the works of the mind, the works of the inner spirit. Therefore, admonish the self. Enter the Self. Enter the Self as God. Enter the Self as God.

Let your cumulative victories thus far of the past ten, twenty, thirty thousand years not be marred by actions in this life so that we will have to turn you back and say: “Sorry, but you must take another round, for you have not followed what you should have followed. You have taken for granted that you can use the light, use the law and yet not be on the right side of the law or the light.”

In this arena, beloved, put on, put on your armour. From head to toe be armed. Wield the sword! Wield the sword of white fire. Wield it unto yourself. Wear the armour that you might bind your own dweller-on-the-threshold. Wear the armour, beloved, that you might deal with aliens and fallen angels and spacecraft who have no right to be in or on this planet.

Call to the ruby ray. He* is the great master who is determined to rid this earth of aliens, fallen angels, et cetera,<4> that come from other star systems and have no right to corrupt the children of humanity save the fact that the children of humanity have lost their God, lost the commandments, lost the teaching. Therefore they are vulnerable. And therefore these aliens take their opportunities, whether to steal body parts, whether to take children right out of the womb in the attempt to prolong their quasi race.

*May refer to the Buddha of the Ruby Ray or to the Elohim of the Ruby Ray. See note 4, p. 341.

Balance 100 Percent of Your Karma

I am speaking to you at the closure of this year with but several months [remaining]. And I ask you to remember the teachings of the messenger on going around the cosmic clock and coming back to the twelve o'clock line victorious. The messenger has pointed out to you that if you make karma on the early points of the clock, you will not have the momentum to rise back to that twelve o'clock line.<5>

Therefore if you were to stand before the Keeper of the Scrolls<6> this day and if you wished to be invited to the retreat of the Royal Teton, you might be shown how you have not fulfilled the karmas of the days, the weeks, the months and the years. Therefore we have incomplete rounds on the cosmic clock showing [for you]. I promise you that I will do all in my power to bring you to that place this night where you can not only see the problem of not concluding cycles but you may take the memory of that vision back with you to this octave.

It is necessary to understand that only you can make your ascension. This has been said during this conference<7> but I must say it again. Only you can make your ascension. Thus I come with a message of supreme responsibility. Some have said that those who believe they are the Christ are insane. Others have said, “We will realize our inner Christhood and we will move on.” There is that moment of the slip twixt the cup and the lip. See to it that this does not happen to you. Thus, in the next two months, beloved, go back. Go back in your own charts. Go back in the mind and clean up those points on the cosmic clock that have tripped you up for thousands of years.

It is one thing to balance one's karma and make the ascension at 51 percent; it is another to go the whole nine yards unto the 100 percent. What does that give you, beloved? Balancing 100 percent of your karma means that you are no longer tied to the laggard evolutions of this planet or any evolutions of this planet if you do not desire to be tied to them.

If you ascend with remaining karma, that beyond the 51 percent, you will find that it will take you sometimes decades and more than decades to balance karma at the etheric octave that would have been so easy for you to balance while in embodiment. For earth is the place of action. This is the place of action, beloved. I would like to see you accrue to your causal bodies that 100 percent balance of karma and then a greater mastery, a greater wisdom, a greater sense of walking the earth fulfilling the inner Christ within you, walking and talking with your Holy Christ Self.

Try being alone, beloved, where it is safe—walking in the mountains, walking by the stream, going here and going there in nature. How long do you feel comfortable to be alone? And when does it come upon you that you feel the need for others around you? It is good to test oneself in these matters, for, beloved, the solitary climber is the victor. And there comes a time in life when you must be ready for aloneness, and that aloneness translates into all-oneness. Therefore be self-fulfilling. Therefore bring to the heart resources untold, resources from God and for your labors long in many centuries.

Being a Good Person Is Not Enough

I turn my attention and my address to you this day to burdens that are upon the people of the world, upon this nation, burdens of terrorism, burdens of drugs, burdens in the youth and the children who do not have proper schooling, proper food, proper care, loving. These problems have been with us; they have been with us for a long time. But beloved, what is happening today is an outrage. And the entire Spirit of the Great White Brotherhood, every ascended master and cosmic being in this moment is absolutely outraged at what is being done to the children, to the people, to the foods, to the media, to what the lifestyle and civilization is all about.

I ask you to take note when you come and go in your world, across the nations—write down what you observe in people. And in this notebook, a special notebook, I ask you to write your impressions of people, all kinds of people. Do this on an ongoing basis. And from time to time ask yourself, “Is this individual or that individual or these people I've seen”—people you do not even know but have observed—ask yourself, “is what these people are doing going to afford them their ascension or will it deprive them of their ascension?”

It is truly amazing, beloved, that so many lifestreams of high quality, very high quality, who have had that high quality in past civilizations, now are ready to be lax—lax in their morals, lax in every part of their lives, so lax that they cannot measure up even to God's littlest angel. And why are they lax? Because this is what they see in the media. This is the example of parents, this is the example of societies. And so, gradually and finally, as the course of an avalanche, a civilization can come down and be destroyed—even when a large percentage of the people are good people.

And so I submit to you that being a good person is not enough. You must be more than a good person; you must be a God person. A God person, beloved, meaning that the God, your mighty I AM Presence, is not a thousand leagues away but hovers above you because of gentle words and kindnesses, because you have taken on a labor for me, for the Goddess of Liberty, because you have understood the law of harmony and that it is lethal to ever violate that law for any reason.

Only Two Ways to Go: Up or Down

Look, then, upon the people of the world as the messenger has looked upon many in her travels, and you will see fine souls who have not found the key to open the door to studies in alchemy, to the science of the spoken Word, to the teachings of El Morya, to the ascended masters. And when you, as those who have come here newly and others [who] have been here for decades, as you come into the awareness of the joy of God, you immediately forsake the ways of old friends that are no longer compatible because they go one way and you go another.

There are only two ways to go, beloved: up or down. And when you choose to go up, many of your friends will leave you. And you will be introduced to new ascended master friends—ascended masters and their chelas. So, beloved, set a shining example. Yet lean as the willow tree to listen to those who do not understand, for whom it will take some time to realize that certain things must be let go of.

So, beloved, you may see in your mind's eye a planetary avalanche. You see the nations, the mountains, the cities, the people, the desert places. And there is a descent of consciousness; there is a descending of consciousness that is ever so subtle. The media brings in one lower state of consciousness after another and the people adjust and thus they follow and they follow. And the avalanche of the human consciousness is descending and therefore I say to you this day: “Who will raise them up? Who will awaken them and say, 'Wake up! Wake up! Wake up! You're going the wrong way! The way is up, not down.'”

You Are Not Here for Yourselves

Yes. Yes, beloved. I am counting on you to find the fiery souls. I am counting on you to realize that every soul that is saved through your service, your decrees, your going after that one, nurturing that one, speaking with that one, inviting that one to be in your midst in your study centers, and so forth—if the record shows that you or a group of you have saved a soul, I, Saint Germain, will reward you for every soul of light you save. And that saving means the ultimate saving.

Take on the burden of your brothers and sisters. Take on the motto “He's not heavy, Father...he's my brother.”<8> Remember those words, beloved. Remember those words. You are not here for yourselves.

Balance your karma. Know the brotherhood of Saint Francis and Saint Clare.<9> Know your mission. Tear yourself from what you have been doing for thousands of years. For I, Saint Germain, will not be able to take you to your ascension. You must have the qualifications for the ascension. And when you do, beloved, then I will stand beside you before the Lords of Karma, and then and only then can I sponsor you.

From this point in time to the point of your eternity, I bless you. I seal you in the violet flame. And I give to your Holy Christ Self a concentrated elixir of that flame. It will continue to multiply in that cup so long as you continue to give your violet flame decrees.

I smile and rejoice in the happiness of the Spirit and I say, Move on. Move on. You have worlds to conquer.

“The Summit Lighthouse Sheds Its Radiance o'er All the World to Manifest as Pearls of Wisdom.”

This dictation by Saint Germain was delivered by the Messenger of the Great White Brotherhood Elizabeth Clare Prophet on Sunday, October 13, 1996, during the six-day conference A Soul Journey: From Darkness into the Light of the New Day, held at the Royal Teton Ranch, Park County, Montana. [N.B. Bracketed words have been added by the editor for clarity in the written word.] Unless otherwise noted, publications listed in these notes are Summit University Press publications. For ordering information, go to

1. Saint Germain's Heart Meditations I and II, delivered by the messenger at Saint Germain's request, are for the clearing, strengthening and initiation of the heart chakra and the balancing of the threefold flame. They include devotional prayers, decrees, mantras, hymns, meditations and visualizations as well as instruction and invocations by the messenger and the opportunity for participants to offer personal prayers. Saint Germain's Heart Meditation I, given May 3, 1987, on 93-min. audiocassette, A87027. Saint Germain's Heart Meditation II, given July 10, 1988, at the Heart of the Inner Retreat, includes a dictation by Saint Germain not published anywhere else. For Keepers of the Flame only, 3 audiocassettes, 3 hr. 49 min., S89055.

2. The negative Martian energies include aggression, anger, arrogance, argumentation, accusation, agitation, apathy, atheism, annihilation, aggravation, annoyance, aggressive mental suggestion; family mesmerism; criticism, condemnation and judgment; malicious, ignorant, sympathetic and delicious animal magnetism; and all anti-Americanism, anti-Father, anti-Mother, anti-Christ and anti-Holy Spirit manifestations in the four quadrants of Matter. For teaching on the negative Martian energies, see 1992 Pearls of Wisdom, p. 661 n. 1.

3. The Keepers of the Flame Fraternity was founded in 1961 under the sponsorship of Saint Germain. See p. 320 n. 6, this volume.

4. “Call to the ruby ray...” On June 26, 1995, Heros and Amora announced that they were planting bricks of the ruby ray in the earth for the restabilization of the planet. They said: “Now let there be a respite for the children of God!...Noble angels who serve the Elohim of the Ruby Ray as well as the Buddha of the Ruby Ray have volunteered to check the destabilizing conditions existing in the depths of the earth and in the lowest levels of the astral plane....When you give your calls to the Buddha of the Ruby Ray and to these angels who serve under him, they will anchor the momentum of your ruby-ray decrees in the ruby-ray bricks. We use the energy emitted from these bricks to curtail the activities of the fallen angels” (1995 Pearls of Wisdom, vol. 38, no. 40, pp. 475-79, 481).

5. Refers to the messenger's teaching on completing one's journey around the circle of the cosmic clock, delivered during the July 1997 Summit University seminar The Victory of Love on the Twelve Lines of the Cosmic Clock. The messenger explained the importance of gaining a strong momentum as one makes the descent from the 12 o'clock line to the 6 o'clock line and garnering sufficient white fire in the base-of-the-spine chakra in order to make the ascent on the other side of the clock, from the six o'clock line to the 12 o'clock line. The first half of the clock is the Alpha Thrust—the thrust of Spirit, the going out from God, or the descent of the soul by the light of the Father—in which the soul receives the initiations of the Father, the Son, and the Holy Spirit. The second half is the Omega Return—the coming in to God, or the ascent of the soul by the light of the Mother—in which the soul receives the initiations of the Buddha and the Mother. Through these initiations the soul goes forth from the Great Central Sun at the Alpha Thrust and gains experience in the Matter universes. On the Omega Return the soul reenters the causal body and returns through the ritual of the ascension to the heart of God in the Great Central Sun. For more teaching on the cosmic clock, see Elizabeth Clare Prophet, “The Cosmic Clock: Psychology for the Aquarian Man and Woman,” in The Great White Brotherhood in the Culture, History and Religion of America, pp. 173-206; The ABC's of Your Psychology on the Cosmic Clock, 8-audiocassette album; and Seminar on the Cosmic Clock: Charting the Cycles of Your Karma, Psychology and Spiritual Powers on the Cosmic Clock, 2-audiocassette album.

6. The Keeper of the Scrolls is the custodian of the archives containing each individual's book of life. He is the head of the band of angels known as the angels of record, or recording angels. Each soul evolving in time and space is assigned a recording angel, who records every action, word, deed, thought and feeling. At the end of each day, the recording angel submits the record of that day to the Keeper of the Scrolls. It is the responsibility of the Keeper of the Scrolls to provide the ascended masters and the Lords of Karma with the life record of any or all incarnations of any individual about whom they may inquire.

7. “Only you can make your ascension.” See K-17, Lanello and the Elohim Cyclopea, October 11, 1996, “Acceleration Is the Key,” in 2001 Pearls of Wisdom, vol. 44, no. 41, pp. 357-58; no. 42, pp. 359-60; Mighty Astrea and Purity, October 13, 1996, “The Word Must Be Spoken: Make the Call!” in Pearl no. 43, pp. 311-12, this volume; Goddess of Liberty, October 13, 1996, “There Is Only One Way to Make Your Ascension: Accelerate Every Single Day of Your Life,” in Pearl no. 44, pp. 324-27, 328, this volume.

The drawing and expression illustrated the work done at Boys Town (founded in Nebraska in 1917 by Father Edward J. Flanagan as a home for orphaned and troubled boys). Now called Girls and Boys Town, the organization's mission is to change the way America cares for her at-risk children.
