What are the 144 virtues? What do the ascended masters say about the virtues and their importance to us? This course will assist you in identifying and exploring the 144 virtues and how they relate to the twelve God-qualities on the cosmic clock,* and to the seven chakras. There will be opportunity via our Forum for you to discuss what the virtues mean to you personally—the ways you experience them, understand them, envision them, and live them. You will learn how embodying them will accelerate you on your path as an initiate.
Enjoy the lively discussions as we focus on one God-quality of the cosmic clock during each class. And through our Forum, tell us about your insights, knowledge, experience with each God-quality and the virtue associated with it through a story, a quote, a poem, a prayer, a guided meditation, a drawing, a song, or any way you are inspired to share.

*Cosmic clock: An Aquarian-Age science of spiritual astrology, the cosmic clock was taught by beloved Mother Mary to Elizabeth Clare Prophet in the early 1970s. Disciples on the path of the ascension may use this understanding of the law of cycles to chart the patterns of the return of both positive and negative personal and planetary karma to meet the challenges and opportunities of today.
This cosmic clock teaching shares the deeper meaning of the 12 sun signs (solar hierarchies); their associated ascended master sponsors (to invoke for assistance); God-qualities to contemplate, absorb and master; colors to visualize; and anti-virtues (vices) to overcome through prayer, meditation and dynamic decrees.
Disciples of the ascended masters learn to anticipate the astrological portents of coming cycles, consume the negatives and highlight the positives through the use of the violet transmuting flame in order to pass each spiritual initiation and master the psychology of the soul in the process. In The Hearts Center movement, the ascended masters have added an understanding of the superconscious, conscious, subconscious and unconscious selves as each relates to the cardinal (blue), fixed (pink) and mutable (yellow) aspects of the threefold flame.

Soulfulness Is a Virtue, October 30, 2010
Each virtue that you embrace consciously of the Divine One may become a permanent resident within your auric field as you meditate upon the various aspects of the differentiation of light within that virtue and attempt to breathe it in daily with great joy and even in spontaneous moments to be expressive of that childlike virtue unto others in playful and noble ways alike.
